All he is saying: Give peace a chance


BY STEPHEN BAUMANN
ENGLEWOOD EDITOR


Released
Two now-healthy turtles
are head .g home.


All Peter Duisberg wants
for his birthday is world
peace.
But he'll settle for a big
turnout at Saturday's 16th
annual World Day of Peace
event, at Epiphany Cathedral
in Venice.
Dec. 31 is Duisberg's 86th
birthday, and he'll be attend-
ing the event he spearhead-
ed in Englewood when he
turned 70.


In. 1990, roughly 150 peo-
ple attended. the first local
World Day of Peace program
at the Community Presby-
terian Church in Englewood,
Duisberg said Tuesday. As it
grew, it was moved to other
churches in town.
Last year the event was
moved to the large Catholic
cathedral at 350 W. Tampa
Ave. in downtown Venice.
"It started in Englewood,"
Duisberg said. "We want
Englewood to know it's mov-
ing because we succeeded:


it's not that we lost some-
thing."
Indeed, Duisberg is proud
of the accomplishment of
local activists speaking out
on global issues.
"1 would say we've be-
come almost a role model
for all Florida peace groups,"
, he said.
"It's regional now. The
peace movement we started
here now reaches from Bra-
denton to Port Charlotte. We
feel now we should have
some of the other groups and


regions feel like they have
some access to the event,"
he said.
While early on, he was
"the main cheese," Duisberg
said he is no longer taldng a
large role in World Peace Day
activities. The event is orga-
nized by Carol Ann and Lee
Breyer of Bradenton and
August Schmidt of Sarasota
for the Southwest Florida
Coalition for Peace and
Justice.
Duisberg said his hope is
that as many as 2,000 will


attend on Saturday; last year,
roughly 800 showed up.
The program begins in
Venice at 10 a.m. and contin-
ues until 3:15 p.m. A box
lunch will be available at the
cathedral for $10; lunch is
noon to 1 p.m. -
The theme this year is
"Peace Beyond Partisanship
in Church and State."
According the coalition's
press release, the morning
keynote speaker is the Rev.

VHA needs federal


money to redevelop

Attempts to recreate Venice's public housing
complex hinge on winning tax-credit funding


and City Hall's support.
BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

The Venice Housing Au-
thority will only get one
opportunity for large-scale
redevelopment, so it better
make this one chance count,
according to VHA Executive
Director Peter Lopez.
The Venice areas's only
public housing complex is
chugging toward a Feb. 1
deadline to submit its appli-
cation for tax-credit funding,
Low-Income Housing Tax
Credit. Lopez and the VHA
board'are attempting to win
the competitive process, in
order to obtain about $16
million to rebuild and ex-
pand Grove Terrace Apart-
ment Complex on Grove
Street, just off of East Venice
Avenue. ',
Their ambitious plan
would use Grove Terrace's
6.6 acres and build up to
144 apartments in place of


the 50 units that were the
site of numerous city build-
ing code violations a year
ago. Hopes, are to build 72-
apartments dedicated to
low-income families, and
then another 72 for low-
income senior citizens.
Escalating construction
and land prices have VHA
stuck to its current spot.
Lopez believes this is its lone
chance to build low-income
housing.
"How close we get to that
(144 units) will depend on
how best we can utilize the
spot within the context of
zoning, stormwater reten-
tion, parking," Lopez said.
'At the end of the day, the
major constraint is financ-
ing."

Palm tree artist Landry dies


STAFF REPORT

You probably didn't know
David Landry, but you know
his work.
His imaginative carvings

Construction workers be-
gan clearing trees for Linear
Park Monday while Venice
city officials conducted dam-
age control for worried resi-
dents.
Linear Park is the city's
proposed recreational walk
and bike trail along the
Intracoastal WVaterway.


Some Country Club Es-
tates residents discovered
they had to give up some of
their property for the first seg-
ment of the recreational trail.
They said they would lose pri-
vacy and yard space if the trail
is built.
The first segment runs
along Golf Drive which abuts
the back yards of many resi-
dents.
"There was no considera-


tion given to their real con-
cerns," Venice attorney James
Titus said.
Titus was retained by CCE
shareholders to protect their
interests. "They don't want to
stop the thing in its tracks,
they just don't want to be run
over."
Venice City Engineer Pat
Collins, who is designing the
paik, said consideration was
given to the resident's con-
cerns.
"I told the CCE board I


want to be sensitive to all the
residents there," Collins said.
"I told them I want to have
somebody from CCE there
while we build the berm so if
it isn't being done right, they
can have input."
Collins said he has had a
lot of dialogue with CCE
about the project, the first
phase of which is estimated at
about $1.2 million.
"There has been continual
conversation for at least eight
months. I dealt with the

Rachel and Hook head home to open waters


Two sea turtles that had been under the care
of Mote Marine Laboratory were released back
into. the Gulf of Mexico waters Wednesday near
where they had been rescued earlier this summer.


BY j(IM'COOL
FEr[ URES EDITOR

swimmingg as if its life de-
pended on. it, Hook, a young
Kemps Ridley sea turtle, pad-
dled furiously toward the
Gulf of Mexico Wednesday
morning.
A half hour earlier, a
220-pound loggerhead nick-
named Rachel had been re-
leased from Englewood Beach
Park. It too headed out into
the gulf, although at a more
sedate pace.
Aka ST05152, Hook had
just been released from Mote
Marine Laboratory's Sea Tur-
tle Rehabilitation hospital in
Sarasota. The sub-adult sea
turtle had been found be-
neath the Port Charlotte
Beach Park Pier on Oct. 9,
tangled in fishing gear and
with two hooks in its mouth
and throat. The hooks were
removed and antibiotics
were administered to prevent
infection.
Rachel, aka ST05146, was
taken to Mote's sea turtle
hospital on Sept. 27, when it
was found floating in the
surf near Boca Grande. Said
to be somewhat responsive
at the time of its rescue, the
sea turtle suffered a variety
of problems including ane-
mia and red tide toxicosis.
Treatment was begun on
Sept. 29 and the turtle re-
sponded very well, Mote
chief veterinarian Dr. Charles
Manire said Wednesday.
Gradually moved from shal-
low to deeper water as its
recovery progressed, Rachel
was judged ready for release
on Dec. 9 but the red tide
bloom that extended along
.most of the gulf coast at that
time prevented dihe turtle's
release.
Red tide, an algae bloom
thought to be fed by nutrients
in stormwater runoffs that
leach into the gulf, is thought
to be responsible for the
deaths of several turtles and
dolphins reported by Mote's
Stranding Investigations Pro-
gram.
Genetics
Considered a subadult, de-
spite its size and probable
age (Manire estimated it to
be between 20 and 40 years
old) Rachel has not reached
reproductive age, which can
be as late as 50.
"That is what makes it so
important to save the fe-
males ,when we can, Mote
staff member, Jamie Tacy
said. "When it takes that
many years for a female sea


turtle to reproduce, it is that
much more important to get it
back out there."
Adult sea turtles will nest
several times per summer,
generally returning to the
area where they themselves
were hatched.
"They are genetically pro-
grammed to do that," Manire
said.
Adults might not nest
every year but will remain
sexually active for at least
20-30 years.
Manire said Rachel had
responded well to treatment.
Carried into the water by
Mote staff and volunteers, it
immediately began swim-
ming out to sea as video and
still cameras captured the
action.
With Rachel safely back in
the wild, it was time for the
Mote crew and the media to
get back in their cars and
head south toward Port Char-
lotte to release Hook.,
"We didn't want to release
it at the pier, where it would
get hooked again," Manire
said. "It will probably stay in
,Florida for four to five years
and then migrate back to
Mexico.
"MNlost Kemp's Ridleys are
bom in Mexico."
The right direction
Considered the most en-
dangered of all the sea turtles,
Kemp's Ridley turtles nest in
mass and in the daytime, he
said. Loggerheads, greens
and most other sea turtles
usually nest and hatch at
night.
Hook was released just
east and south of the toll
booth plaza leading to Boca
Grande.
The turtle was carried into
the water by Mote volunteer
Kathy Klingelberger after be-
ing carried to the shore by
Mote staff member David
Smith, who works in the re-
habilitation department.
Manire said the water was
about 70 degrees there. If
the water were colder, the
turtle might have been a bit
slower.
"He definitely headed in
the right direction," Manire
said before heading back to
Mote, where several other
ailing turtles remain in the.
hospital, including one found
Wednesday night off Long-
boat Key.

gations Program responds 24

Nokomis Pavilion redo projected for summer 2006


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS! COLUMNIST


The -renovation of the
Nokomis Beach Pavilion is
making progress, but don't
expect to see any work being
done for months.
"Construction is moving
forward and we're hoping for
a start in August, but can't
promise because of the per-
mitting," said Rob LaDue of
Sarasota) County Parks and
Recreation Services.
Revisions to the boardwalk
are needed, so it has been
necessary to amend the origi-
nal plans. The coastal set-
back variance is under in-
vestigation and the county
has hired a consultant, con-
firmed LaDue.
A state historic grant of
$300,000 'was received, but
the state made comments
and had concerns, requiring
further revisions to the plans.
The project includes "dust-
ing off" the interior, rehabili-


stating the roof and opening
up the columns, which have
been buried in cement. They
will be enlarged and brought
to their original round shape.
Over the years the courtyard
area has been modified, with
the fountain removed and the.
planters cut back. Plans call for
it all to be brought-back to the
original design. In the southern
courtyard there were murals
on plywood created by an
artist working with architect
Jack West; it is hoped they can
be recreated.
A consultant is on board
to prepare the application,
which will take one month.
The. state will process the
application, and often there
are delays in Tallahassee. If
the application is rejected it
will mean a further two-
month delay.
It takes more time to get it
on Sarasota County Conmis-
sion agenda, so overall it
could take six months before
it goes out to bid, according


to LaDue.
Plans announced in Oc-
tober 2004 called for an
$800,000 makeover of the
1953 pavilion. Contractors
would tear out, rebuild and
restore the bathrooms. An
air-conditioned community
room for 40 people would be
constructed. Decorative floor
tiles would be fired under the
outside of the pavilion.
In the outside covered din-
ing area would be a lock-up
service with a refrigerator
and kitchen sink. A fountain
and landscaping would com-
plete the pavilion project.
A new boardwalk and
observation area are to be
constructed from the north
parking lot to the beach.
In June 2005 it was thought
the work could start within
six months with a projected
completion 12 months later.
This update from LaDue
confirming work is in pro-
gress means completion is

Second charter school appeals


Summit Academy has joined Challenge
Foundation Academy in contesting the school
board's decision not to approve its application
for a school for special needs students.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Another charter school is
appealing the Sarasota Coun-
ty School Board's decision in
October to deny its applica-
tion.
Summit Academy Manage-
ment, based out of Copley,.
Ohio, was designed to serve
,mostly autistic children. It
filed its appeal this month.
It follows an appeal in
November by Challenge
Foundation Academy,- the
only applicant to receive a
satisfactory rating by the dis-
trict's Charter Review Com-
mittee. On Oct. 18 the board
denied all five charter school
applications filed this year in
Sarasota County, including
Summit Academy's.
Based on the Charter Re-
view Committee's recom-
mendation, the school board
found Summit's school de-
sign inadequate. The district
questioned .how the school
would meet the "highly quali-
fied" provision of the No
Child Left Behind Act, espe-
cially in multi-grade class-
rooms. NCLB requires teach-
ers to be certified in each
subject they teach.
Summit's appeal states it
intended to tap into a glut of
certified teachers willing to
relocate from existing Ohio
schools.
"Meeting the requirements
of having highly qualified
teachers is a challenge for all
schools. We have studied the
certification requirements
and reciprocity with Florida
and are confident that we
will be able to staff the school
as required," states Cari Roth,
Tallahassee attorney with
Bryant Miller & Olive, in the
appeal.
Impossible, impractical
Roth also dismissed the
district's "unsubstantiated"
claim that Summit is unable
to measure FCAT perfor-
mance goals and objectives
as required by law.
"The actual rate of growth
will be dependent upon the
individuals needs of the chil-
dren who enter Summit
Academy. Therefore, it is not
possible to provide nor is it
practical to require more

specificity in response to
this requirement. The actual
number of ADHD and As-
perger children in a given
classroom can make a sig-
nificant difference in the,
percent of children who read
at grade level....."
"As a whole, the State of
Florida and Sarasota County
are struggling to achieve
the expected level of perfor-
mance with exceptional stu-
dents ... It is our experience,.
with over 1,600 students in
27 schools, that students
can make amazing gains given
the right environment and
support. Summit Academy
will have both," Roth said.
Bad press
In all, the district cited 13
shortcomings with the Sum-
mit application, not the least
of which involved bad press
in Akron.
The Charter Review Com-
mittee reviewed information
from newspaper articles re-
lated to concerns with fiscal
accountability and low stu-
dent achievement in several
charter schools under Sum-
mit Management's umbrella.,
Further research, said the
district, revealed more con-
cerns.
Summit countered that a
subsequent inquiry by the
Ohio Department of Edu-
cation, completed in Septem-


ber 2002, regarding alleged
procedural violations found
"none could be clearly sub-
stantiated."
Additionally, in a review
of Summit's original applica-
tion, the district claimed cal-
culations of revenues gener-
ated by serving special needs
students in Florida were in-
correct, and all budgeted
revenues were over-project-
ed. Even the estimated cost
of leasing a facility was sig-
nificandy under-projected,
according to district officials.
Summit's appeal states it
found a new benefactor in-
terested in providing a suit-
able facility for the district.
As for alleged academic
underachievement in some
of its schools, Summit claims
at least some of the problem
stems from how Ohio de-
fines success, for two rea-
sons. First, charter schools
can only 'open in Ohio dis-
tricts that receive Florida's
grade of D or E Second, the
Ohio reporting system does
not yet include any data re-
lated to annual learning
gains, as Florida does. Both
predispose the school to
lower scores, Summit claims.
Struggling kids
But mostly, Summit
claims, it has to do with the
nature of serving special
needs students.
Summit Academy admits
serving, its unique population
of students makes it very
difficult to access how well
they perform in the school
setting.

schools are designed to edu-
cate students identified as
ha-ing Asperger's Disorder
and ADHD. These students
traditionally, have high ab-
sentee rates, a high number
of behavioral referrals, num-
erous suspensions and ex-
pulsions, frustrated parents,
and low test scores.
"In many cases, Including
Sarasota County schools, this
struggle shows up on- the
district's: yearly AYP (Ade-
quate Yearly Progress) report.
Nearly every student enroll-
ed in a Summit Academy,
School falls into this category
of learners. Even though we
serve these struggling stu-
dents, 17 out of 27 schools
achieved AYP for the 2004-05
school year," Roth said.
"We serve children who
do not test well. The arrival
of NCLB has forced schools
to assess special needs stu-
dents& with the same meas-
ure as gifted ones. Special
needs students are expected
to reach the same standards
as the regular education stu-
dents. While we use allow-
able accommodations in the'
testing environment, that
does not always level the
playing field enough for the
special needs learner," Roth
wrote in the appeal.
The district has 30 days in
which to respond before the
matter is turned over to the
Charter School Appeal Com-
mission, which will make a
recommendation to the Flor-
ida State Board of Education.

Anderson drops out of House race


STAFF REPORT


Former Sarasota County
Commissioner Bob Anderson
has announced he is with-
drawing from the race for the
Republican nomination for
Florida House Seat 70 due to
health reasons.
District 70 includes most
of South Sarasota County.
Nancy Detert, R-Venice, cur-
rently holds the seat but is


seeking the Republican nom-
ination to replace Katherine
Harris in Congressional
District 13. Harris, R-
Longboat Key, is running for
the U.S. Senate against
Democrat Bill Nelson.
Anderson said that an
infection following knee-
replacement surgery imped-
ed his recovery and would
make it impossible for him to
undertake the rigors of a


campaign for office at; this
time.
He said he expects a full
recovery, but the voters
deserve a candidate who is
physically up to getting out to
win their votes.
"T have enjoyed serving
the residents of Sarasota
County in the past," he said,
"and I hope to have the
opportunity again in the,
future."

Deadline for registering

mobile homes is Dec. 31


STAFF REPORT


Sarasota County Tax
Collector Barbara Ford-
Coates is urging all owners of
double-wide and triple-wide'
mobile homes to check their
registrations, which expire on
Dec. 31.
Last year almost 250 peo-
ple renewed only a portion of
their mobile, home. Not
renewing all sides can result
in the home being placed on
the tangible tax roll, which


means hundreds of dollars of
additional tax.
Almost 13,000 renewal
notices (one for every side)
were mailed to mobile home
owners in November. The
state requires a yearly renew-
al of those who live in rental
parks, not those ;who own
their land and mobile home.
In order to avoid penal-
ties, single-wide homes
should display one 2006
decal, double-wide homes
should display two 2006


decals and triple-wide
homes should display three
2006 decals.
The 2006 decals are a small
yellow decal placed on a larg-
er orange decal. The law
states that the decals should
be in the lower left corner of
the window closest to the
street providing access to the
residence.
Owners who need addi-
tional decals should contact
the tax collector's office
immediately at 861-8300.

PEACE from Page 1A


Fred Morris, the former ex-
ecutive director of the Flor-
ida Council of Churches and
an advocate for peace and
human 'rights. A discussion
with Catholic, Islamic and
Jewish community leaders
will follow.
The afternoon session
will include Jeffrey Weisberg
of the Peace Alliance, the


Rev. Charles McKenzie of the
Rainbow Coalition, a video
conversation with Rep. Den-
nis Kucinich, D-Ohio, and
veteran CBS News anchor-
man Walter Cronkite.
A live question-and-ans-
wer session will take place
with Kucinich via conference
call from London.
Duisberg said Kucinich


has been the main sponsor
of a bill calling for the estab-
lishment of a Cabinet-level
Department of Peace, a mea-
sure he is enthusiastic about.
"Undoubtedly, the country
will be ready for that in three
to four years," Duisberg said.
He also expressed confi-
dence that local activism
could sway national and


global trends.
"We feel if grassroots peo-
ple don't stand up for peace
and nonviolence, for' moral
leadership, that it may not
get done. We can't depend
on the politicians.
"If the people don't come
out and stand up for peace
and against war-making
machinery, it won't be stop-


ped," he said.
Future programs include
a visit by Dr. Helen Caldicott,
the founder of Physicians for.
Social Responsibility. Caldi-
cott is scheduled to speak at,
the Bradenton campus of
Manatbe Community College
in late April, Duisberg said.
The Southwest Florida
Coalition for Peace and


Justice is an association of
17 religious and community
organizations. For more in-
formation, call (941) 764-5859
or (941) 493-8568.
"It's for anybody of good
will," Duisberg said.

KENYA from Page 1A
When someone in Kenya
dies, the mourning period is
lengthy.
"People hang around the
home of the deceased for
days. They bring food. They
help to build the casket," she
said. "At the funeral, each
mourner uses a shovel to dig
the grave. The funeral lasts for
five to six hours. "In our coun-
try, everything is so cut and
dried. The ceremony is over
before you know it."
Fitzgerald will leave her
Osprey home in about two
and a half weeks for Nairobi to
spend three months to help a
childhood friend operate a
boarding school. Called He-
kima Place, it serves children
orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Part
of her effort will be to recruit
and train natives as coun-
selors.
She and her friend hope to
establish several such schools
throughout the country -for
elementary- and secondary-
school girls, who will be
housed at Hekima while they
learn a trade.
"When one member of a
Kenyan family works, .the
whole family can eat," she
said. The girls are taught
sewing and other homemak-
ing skills.
"This is a lot more impor-
tant to their survival today
than when I was in Kenya
from 1981 to 1984," Fitzgerald
said. "Kids there are living
longer, although not long by
our standards. But they're
orphaned by the deaths of
their parents from AIDS..
They have no families. So'
Hdlkima Place can make a
home for eight or 10 kids."
Inspired
When in Kenya before,
Fitzgerald established a clinic
that still operates under the
direction of an order of in-
digenous nuns. The clinic was
associated with a school in
which her husband was in-
volved.
Their three children also
took part in the experience,
which included the birth of a
fourth child during their stay.
Fitzgerald's oldest child, a
son, was so inspired by his
visits to the clinic that he
became a doctor, and spent
his internship in Tanzania, a
country adjoining Kenya.
"I'm going to have to re-
learn Swahili in a hurry," she
said. "It will certainly help in
working with those Kenyan
girls. The ones who attend
the school are from all over
the country. If they aren't
taught some kind of trade,
they won't make it.
"They're exposed to a lot of
abuse," she said. "To survive,
many turn to prostitution."
"Technically, the school is
free. But someone has to find
the money for books, pencils
and school uniforms," she said.
"I can help out in that, too. It
makes it all worthwhile to
help those girls prepare for life.
Fitzgerald recalled her first
Kenyan stay, citing the ex-
treme poverty and illness.
Malnutrition was widespread,
caused by raw sewage in the .
water supply and slum condi-
tions in housing. Part of her
work then was to recruit and
train health workers to ad-
minister deworming medi-
cines to underfed children.
"You can't imagine how
primitive it is there," she ex-
claimed. "Just give a young-
ster a piece of paperto write
on, she acts as though you've
given her the world. And
going to school is awfully
hard. They only go from 9
a.m. until noon. It's unbear-
ably hot in a building cover-
ed by a corrugated iron roof.
No one can stand it."
Still, she looks forward to
her next Kenyan mission in
just a few days.

consultants recently made
their sales pitch to the city,
showing concept plans and
how the project would be
funded.
City Hall support is needed
for this project because of
how the LIHTC program
works. Venice needs to con-
tribute $150,000 toward the
project as local support. A
cash donation isn't budget-
ed, so "City Manager Marty
Black said Venice will identify
impact-fee tax credits and
in-kind services to equal
$150,000.
Overall, the city manager
supports the project and is
glad ,to see VHA staying so
close to the island. There
was talk of Grove Terrace
relocating to North Venice as
part of all the new develop-
ment, but those deals for
largeripatches of land all fell
apart. Critics pointed out
low-income families would
no longer have been within
walking distance of almost
everything they need.
VHA showed Black and
city staff concept drawings
for an 84-unit complex, the
smallest this redevelopment,
project would be, Lopez
said.
In September, VHA award-
ed the development bid to

ment after LIHTC application

consultant Trident Housing
Corp. recommended the
company. The Florida Hous-
ing Finance Corporation
approved VHA's application
for a $500,000 pre-develop-
ment loan for pre-construc-
tion costs such as achitectur-
al, engineering and consult-
ing fees.'
Black did have some res-
ervations with the resident-
relocation plan during con-
struction and actual design of
the complex.
"There's a few unanswered
questions, mostly for the cur-
rent residents and how they
will accommodate them,"
Black said. "We're happy to
see they are staying here, at
their location. We will assist
them with (rezoning) issues,
and ... we'd like to see early
designs of the project."
Relocation plan
The 35-year-old buildings
all would be demolished,
meaning current VHA resi-
dents would have to be relo-
cated. ...
Residents would continue
paying their current share,
and U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Develop-
ment rental vouchers would
pick up the difference up to
the 2006 Fair Market Rents
study.
For example, a family that
pays $200 a month for a two-
bedroom apartment at Grove
Terrace would continue to
pay that amount at another
apartment in Venice. The
median rental price, accord-
ing to the study, is $685 for a
Venice two-bedroom apart-
ment, meaning VHA will kick
in a maximum of $485 toward
monthly relocation rent.
If the family can only
find an apartment that costs
more than $685, then the
family must make up the-
difference noit VHA.


Lopez hopes to have every-
one relocated within 30 miles
of Grove Terrace, in an effort
to not disrupt school classes
and work arrangements.
"The emphasis will be to
relocate them as close as
possible," said Lopez, saying
North Port, Osprey, Laurel
and Englewood would have
to be considered:because of
Venice's lack of rental hous-
ing.
No guarantees
The deadline for applica-
tion is Feb. 1. VHAshould find
out the results by August
2006.
If it winsLIHTC financing,
money could be' ready by the
first of 2007 and residents
could be relocated by sum-
mer 2007, with demolition
and construction to immedi-
ately follow .
Residents who are relocat-
ed are not guaranteed a spot
at the new complex even if
there are no legal problems
while relocated.
A set of criteria based on,
resident's history at VHA will
be created to determine
who will be allowed into the
rebuilt Grove Terrace Apart-
ment Complex. This will be
done to "ensure'you are in-
troducing a responsible
member of the community"
into the new facility, Lopez
said.
As of now, Lopez said
none of the current resi-
dents is expressing fear
about this stipulation. There
should be no fear because it
is the same as any normal
rental community's set of
rules, he said.
"The return is not auto-
matic," Lopez said. "It's ,.not,
guaranteed."

OUR VIEW



Studies suggest higher speed limit is safer


This is the second in a series of editorials on
setting highway speeds.
S ome Sarasota County commissioners,
concerned by Interstate 75 crashes,
wonder if a lower speed limit would
solve the problem. They have asked their
traffic experts to conduct a study a step
that could produce an unpleasant surprise
for the entire state of Florida if the speed lim-
its aren't based on an engineering study.
Experienced traffic engineers say they can
prove posting higher, not lower, speed limits
could reduce the number of highway crash-
es. If Sarasota County traffic engineers follow
federal law, as required, they may find the 70
mph speed limit on I -75 is too low.
They also may find that speed limits need
to be increased on U.S. 41 and other county
roads and highways. Failure to follow the law
could lead to a cut-off of federal funding for
the state.


It also is possible they will learn all 1-75
and U.S. 41 speeding tickets could be thrown
out of court when a competent lawyer shows
the current speed limit is not based on the
studies required by the 1988 law passed.by
Congress.
Getting states to follow the law is a goal of
Chad ,Domsife, founding director of a non-
profit group called "Best Highway Safety
Practices Institute;" based in Portland, Ore.
Because arbitrary speed limits' are set by
states, attorneys scattered across the nation
have begun to win cases using Dornsife's
information.
The federal law requires speed limits to
be based on traffic engineering studies, not
just the hunch of politicians. Engineers
must determine the speeds people actually
travel on a road, including the many who
ignore posted limits, before they put up a
sign.


"Based on the best available evidence, the
speed limit should be set at the speed driven
by 85 or 90 percent of free-moving vehicles
rounded up to the next 5 mph increment.
This method results in speed limits that are
not only acceptable to a majority of the
motorists, but also fall within the speed
range where accident risk is the lowest. No
other factors need to be considered, since
they are .reflected in the drivers' speed
choice," according to Davey Warren, a lead-
ing highway research engineer at Federal
Highway Administration.
That means if 85 out of 100 drivers now
travel at 73 miles an hour on 1-75, the speed:
limit should be posted at 75 mph.-
It is other factors that produce crashes,
according to the experts. The vast majority of
motorists now travel at "reasonable" or com-
fortable speeds, regardless of the speed that
is posted.


Most accidents occur at "conflict
points," such as the places where drivers
enter and leave the highways, Dornsife
argues. Federal highway research shows
"speed zones with speed limits 5 mph
below the reasonable speed limits were
found to have 5 percent more accidents
than zones with reasonable speed limits.
Speed zones with speed limits 10 mph
below the reasonable speed limits were
found to have 10 percent more accident
than zones with reasonable limits," accd-
ing to the study.
A "reasonable" speed is the speed most
drivers find safe and comfortable.
While this information is counterintu-
itive, it is worth heeding'if the goal is to
reduce crashes and deaths. Those Sarasota
County commissioners hoping to do the.
right thing could be at risk of violating the
"law of unintended consequences."

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



We need a one-strike policy


Editor:


It is alarming and truly sad to constantly see or hear about
the predators who habitually perform their sick sexual acts on
children. The recent front-page article about the rape of a
daughter becomes more disturbing when past histories are
revealed. Yet animals like this walk about freely.
The justice system is a joke! The law enforcement and the
tracking of the scumbags are basically absent. If the news
media in every area would spend less time relishing on this
type of sadness and more time demanding a correction of the
problem, it would be beneficial.
There should be a "one strike and you're out" program insti-
tuted now. Citizens should demand the removal of the liberal
judges who slap hands rather than acting in a strong manner.
Coincidentally, President Bush is being condemned for his
spying techniques since Sept. 11, and no mention is being
made of actions by past presidents. And oh yes, J. Edgar Hoover
is never mentioned.
Now the Patriot Act has been blocked by the Senate, led by
that "master" of ethics, Ted Kennedy. The liberals are out of
ammunition and true Americans will now suffer listening to
their off-the-wall rhetoric.
They and the left-wing media should concentrate their
efforts for America, not against, and for the immediate resolu-
tion of our growing predator problem.
Maybe the rope-and-tree-limb justice system should prevail
in certain instances. But then again, the Teddy types would
fight it (he knows how to swim well, in and out of Congress).

Secret Santa
spread joy

Editor:
On the 12th day of
Christmas we began getting
gifts daily from a Secret Santa.
They were dropped off at the
garage door away from the
view of our living room win-
dow. They were always wrap-
ped nicely in either a Christ-
mas gift bag or cellophane
with colorful Christmas pap-
er and always came with a tag
with a lyrical message de-
scribing the gift inside.
The gifts were all Christ-
mas-related, like ornaments,
candies in Christmas tins;
nuts, and a cake mix to make


Christmas cupcakes with
icing and sprinkles.
I must admit we were com-
pletely dumbfounded. At
first, we wondered who could
he doing this? Is it someone in
one of our families? Or could
it be one of our friends from
People for Trees?
Then one day my soon-to-be
husband caught a young boy
in our driveway hiding some-
thing behind his back. The
boy asked something about
our Christmas lights, then ran
off in the direction of our
neighbor two doors away. I
suggested that maybe he's
doing a school project on the
line of "Pay it Forward."
By the eighth day of


Christmas, we stopped won-
dering who was doing this
because the simple gesture
brought us joy. Someone, out
of their kind heart, was taking
the time, effort and expense
to bring a smile to our faces.
Someone out there is spread-
ing Christmas spirit, some-
thing America is slowly being
made to lose sight of.
Whoever you are, Secret
Santa, God bless you. And
God bless all the Secret Santas
out there. Maybe with your
efforts to keep Christmas
alive our children, grandchil-
dren and their children will
always know that Jesus is the
reason for the season and that
Christmas is a celebration of
Him.

Pen in hand,
tongue in cheek
Editor:
I'm 77-years-young and
this is the first time I have
written to a newspaper. Just
had to tell you how much I
like your three-times-a-week
deliveries.
The main reason I'm writ-
ing is the item in the Let'em
Have It yesterday. It went like
this: "Did it again. You printed
the Friday crossword puzzle
in a size that only a man with
a magnifying glass could
read, and then you printed
the wrong answers. I don't
know what I'm going to do
with you."
Well, I hope you guys got as
big a laugh out of it, as I did.
You should give him a job
writing for the paper I'm
sure he wrote it with his
tongue in his cheek. Sure
sounded as if that were the


case.

Simple gesture shows
spirit of the season

Editor:
My son-in-law and I
stropped at a restaurant for a
bite to eat after shopping last
week. We exchanged as few
pleasantries with a young
man seated near us.. After he
left, and we were ready to pay
our check, the waitress said it
had been taken care of by the
young man seated near us.
He had told the wait-
ress that we seemed like nice
people. What a nice gesture
by a stranger! It gave us a
warm Christmas feeling for a
long while afterward.

Political correctness is

please tell me where it is writ-

ing is forbidden.

LET 'EM HAVE IT! SHOULD LEGISLATIVE DISTRICTS BE DRAWN

BY AN INDEPENDENT COMMISSION? CALL US AT 207-1111.


Can't die without getting a ticket


What's a girl to do? I'm really upset. I was given a parking
ticket last week while I was getting my roots done and a cut
Anyone knows it's impossible to get a color and cut in only two
hours. It's the holidays. The big parking lot downtown is full, so
you have to park on the street What's a girl to do, run out and
move her car in a plastic cape and her hair sticking straight in
the air? Another law obviously written by a man most of
whom on our city council are going bald and don't have a clue
about how long it takes to get your roots retouched. I think in
cases like this, the hair salon should be able to give a parking
voucher.;


Rodeo respect. I enjoyed
your feature on the rodeo,
however, the horses are not
broncos,, they're broncs. It's
not barrel riding, it's barrel
racing. And our equivalent of
the big dance is the national
finals rodeo. Florida has a rich
tradition in rodeo. Please give
it due respect by using the
correct terms.
Waterway trail. I'm calling
because I'm very upset and
would like answers. I bike the
Venetian Waterway Park on a
regular basis and I was look-
ing forward to having the east
side completed. It got off to a
great start, but now construc-
tion has stopped. Why can't
the builders complete the
project? No one seems to
know why or what's going on.
As it is the only safe trail or
street to bike on, it should be
a priority to be'completing it.
It's been going .on way too
long. /
Protect historic houses.
Regarding the '20s house on
SPonce de Leon to be bull-
dozed. I think it's time that
city council does more than
pay lip service, and passes an
ordinance to protect all these
historic houses before one by
one, they're all gone.
Step down. I read this
morning in the newspaper
the city of Venice has settled
with thefederal government
over illegal dumping. I see it's
cost us more than $1 million,
so far. The setdement has
been reached. I just feel that'
the buck stopped with the
mayor. I know the mayor has
been before the grand jury.
':The mayor should step down.
This has cost us. They knew
what was happening. I feel
that he should step down
immediately. It was. on his
watch. Also,; I find it very
interesting that Jeff and Dan
Boone are at every city coun-
cil meeting. It looks silly for
them to be in the meeting
every week. You don't see Bob
Moore and other people like
that there.You don't see other
attorneys there every meet-
ing. This looks silly and hope-
fully this new year it will stop.
Buy American. OK, there
you have it. Front page of the
business section, GM is going
to be laying off 30,000 work-
ers in the next couple ofyears.
What more is it going to take,
for people to realize they
need to start buying Ameri-
can cars? All that money is
going into banks in foreign
countries. People should real-
ly wonder because I am
scared to death about where
my children are going to


work. I just can't.believe that
America is for sale the way it
is. I just can't believe people
can buy a $60,000 car and put
a $40,000 profit into a foreign
country's bank. And to reiter-
ate, these foreign automakers
do their final assembly in the
United States to save them
money. They are not provid-
ing American with jobs to be
nice. They are doing it
because they are saving their
companies money. It's cheap-
er for them to do it that way.
Stinky tar pot. The man
who complained of airport jet
fuel fumes while he was shop-
ping at the Rialto mall was
undoubtedly really smelling
odors and fumes escaping
from the tar pot being used in,
reconstruction at the hospital
right across the street. The
smell was very strong for
more than a week.
A Christian holiday. For
more than 2,000 years
Christians, the largest
groups of worshipers in the
world, have celebrated
Christmas, the birth of Jesus
Christ. As a Christian, if you
find yourself saying happy
holidays, then perhaps you
should consider changing
your religion to something
non-Christian.
No laughing matter. I'm
very disappointed as to how
the mayor of Venice acted
recently at a council meeting
when he was discussing the
.sewer leakage- at--the. airport
that may or may not have
taken place. He was acting as
if it was a joke that we were
still discussing. Then I read in
the paper about the $110,000
fine for dumping of waste at
several other locations other
than at the airport. Also, the
total bill is more than $1 mil-
lion, being paid by the tax-
payers. This is a serious situa-
tion but the mayor does not
seem to be dealing with reali-
ty. Again, I cannot figure out
the mayor's attitude, why he
has to be argumentative. Let
the tax league people have-
their say when they come to
council meetings, thank them
and go to the next speaker. He
has no problem accepting
praise from an attorney and
council members, but has
never been able to handle
criticism in a professional
way.
Bringing down value. As I
take my walk around South
Venice in the morning, most-
ly in the alphabetical streets, I
see all over the place houses
up for sale. Makes me kind of
wonder what's happening.
Could it be that people are


getting tired of paying high
taxes and high insurance to
live next door to trash? To
waist-high weeds, to pickup
trucks all over the front lawn?
Code enforcement has to get
really involved and really
crack down on this before all
of us lose our property value.
Looks like it's already begun.
Anyone who owns a home
really needs to crack down on
this and call the code enforce-
ment department and keep
going with the violations. The
code enforcement phone
number here in South Venice
is, 861-3280. Maybe we could
get started before it's too late.
Yes to barriers. My answer
to your question about need-
ing sound and vapor barriers
at the airport is yes, absolute-
ly. There should also be some
beautification of the trees and
plants on Harbor, Beach and
Airport. As it is now, the air-
port is an eyesore. Trees and
things would block some of
the sound. Of larger concern
to me as a pilot at the airport
and as a homeowner is a real
safety issue. The published
flight plan for jets and large
aircraft using the northwest
runway brings them within
100 feet directly above the
homes on the. end of the
island and at that end of the
runway. An airplane coming
in or taking off- a bird, or a
sudden drift of wind, or a
mechanical or human error
could be disastrous. These
homes were all built before
the jets and other large civil-
ian airplanes came to Venice
en masse. For the safety of die
residents of the homes that
were there first, the jets and
large airplanes should all be
restricted from using runway
1331. They are all fully capa-
ble of using the other runway,
whatever direction the wind
would be coming from ......
Double standard. "A' a
Christian, I would like to
know how can lighting of the
menorah candles be held at
the Gazebo, city property,
when the nativity scene
could not be permitted to
continue on the city proper-
ty. Isn't that religion and city
that isn't supposed to be
mixing together? If we can't
have the nativity scene, how
can the menorah candle-
lighting ceremony proceed
on city property? Tit for tat:
Please explain that.


Let's hope Santa retires here soon


Dear Santa:
* Frankly, I'm worried about
you.
Over the years, I've fretted
that you might nriot survive the
around-the-world all-nighter
that you pull every Christmas
Eve. I consider it nothing less
than a miracle that you've
done this for decades, sir, and
my hat is off to you. You do a
world of good.
Butihis year I'm more con-
cerned than ever.
Just look at you. You're bor-
derline obese! Those extra
pounds can't be good for your
heart. And you haul heavy
stuff up and down, up and
down. Perhaps. the cursed
cookies and milk that well-
meaning youngsters leave
have done this to you.


Whatever, you need to
shed maybe 100 pounds and
get in shape if you expect to
enjoy retirement years.
I know you've been a
smoker. Old pictures show
you with a pipe clamped
between yellowed teeth,
smoke curling around your
beard. Perhaps, like Mr.
Potato Head, you've given it
up. That would set a good
example for children.
Now let's talk transporta-
tion. That sleigh is ready for a
riuseum. It doesn't even have
instruments! The least you
should do is retrofit the
sleigh's dash with GPS map
navigation. Better yet, let the
"Pimp My Ride" guys have
free rein with it,
Even more urgently, the
sleigh needs a belt-restraint
system. I'd also opt for front
and side air bags, radar cruise
control and a heated seat.
Satellite radio is a natural for
you, even, if you don't like
Howard Stern, and a DVD
player could entertain you
during long ocean crossings.
We should address your
wardrobe, too. Clearly, you
need an extreme makeover.
Maybe Martha Stewart can!
help. She's home this year.
You'll recognize her by the'


ankle bracelet mark. And
she's full of tips.
But if you really want to be
dashing, the "Queer Eye for
the Straight Guy" folks could
do a number on you.
I also worry that you visit
areas where people have died
of bird flu. That's scary stuff,
Santa. Do you travel with your
Tamiflu in the sleigh's glove
compartment?
Do you keep a keen look-
out for young jet fighter pilots
who might think you're a ter-
rorist trying to illegally enter
the country?
I know you did what you
,had to do Saturday night: set
your TIVO, clamped your cell
phone on your belt, cranked
up your iPod and did your
thing. But think seriously
about retiring to our area after
this run. Let someone
younger take over. Johnny
Depp would be a good
choice.
Final words, Santa: You
don't have to be rich to retire
here with five acres, a pond
and room for your reindeer to
roam. We have lots of
destroyed citrus groves for
you and the missus to build
on. We'd love to have you.
Your concerned friend,
Bob Bowden

is fueled by one overriding
perception, once again, like
the Vietnam syndrome: Our
politicians refuse to let our
military do whatever it takes
to achieve unconditional vic-
tory. If we're going to. work
and put American men and
women in harm's,;way,;let
them kick butt.until the job's
done: politically correct, for


war is hell, or be damned, or

Mr. President; they need to

often. Remember, we didn't
lose Vietnam on the battle-
field. We lost it here at home.

SinoFresh settles lawsuit,


looks forward to future


BYSHELLY JANKE
STAFF WRITER


After two years of legal bat-
ties, SinoFresh Healthcare
founder and CEO Charles
Fust is ready to move his
small, local nasal spray com-
pany forward.
The company was entan-
gled in a lawsuit involving two
former SinoFresh board
members who were removed
after its executives allegedly
followed bad legal advice
from its former law firm,
Greenberg Traurig.
The two board members
and a group of shareholders
filed a malpractice lawsuit
against the firm, and a settle-
ment among Greenberg


Traurig, SinoFresh and the
plaintiffs was reached last
week.
According to the settle-
ment, SinoFresh will receive a
$200,000 payment from
Greenberg Traurig, and the
shareholders (including the
two board members) will
receive sizable shares of the
company's stock.
The plaintiffs' attorney fees
will be paid by SinoFresh.
The settlement is the cul-
mination of months of recon-
ciliation.
"The healing started a long
time ago," Fust said. "We've
buried a lot of it."
Fust said he's relieved that
an "uncontested" settlement
was reached.


"I'm happy to have it over
with," he said. "The settle-
ment represents that."
Fust said he's also happy
the company has reliable
products, including nasal and
throat spray, which are avail-
able in 40,000 retail stores
across the country.
"Things like this typically
bring down a lot of small
companies," Fust said. "It's
(financially) draining and it
has impeded our growth con-
siderably. If this were a weak-
er product line, our company
wouldn't have survived."

"We're here when others
are closed for you to enjoy
an evening massage, then
just crash!" exclaimed Kathy
Kobel, who, with husband
Kevin Dettwiller, has
opened Venice Palms Day
Spa, 775 The Rialto. Venice,
just south of the VRMC
Hospital.
Formerly an automaker's
factory representative,
Kobel has traveled and lived
in several states, annually
vacationing in Venice.
Learning in 2004 her next
move would be to Los
Angeles, 'she and her hus-
band decided they preferred
to make Venice their perma-
nent home.
Following months of
research to locate specialists
for their spa business, they
recently opened in a 2,600-
square-foot building with
three massage rooms, two
facial rooms) a mud room,
an intense pulse light, and
separate steam and locker
rooms.
There are 14 specialists..
including Dr. Arno Loessler
and his wife, Sherry, who
operate the intense pulse
light service to remove sun
damage, age spots and
freckles. Other services
include massages; facials,
body treatments and per-
manent hair removal for
men and women.
"The difference is, we do
not do hair and nails, but we
offer tai chi and yoga classes
in our studio, and stay open
late for Venice," said Kobel.
Kobel would like to have
three spas farther south and
sees it as an opportunity for
employees to move into
management.
The spa .is open until 9
p.m. Tuesday through Friday
and 5 p.m. Saturday; it's
closed Sundays and Mon-
days. Call 488-2220
Starbucks

Disappointing news for
specialist coffee drinkers in
Venice: Joel Sivertsen of
Thomas Sivertsen Real
Estate Brokers confirmed
permitting for the new.
Starbucks to be constructed
on the former gas station at
Center Road and U.S. 41
Bypass has delayed the
planned opening to Sep-
tember 2006.
SMH South
County campus
On the future South Coun-
ty Taylor Ranch health care
campus, Michael Harring-
ton, Sarasota Memorial
Hospital chief executive for
ambulatory services, con-
firmed consultations with
North Port regarding annex-
ation. It may be appropriate
because of the proximity of
that location to Taylor
Ranch Elementary School.
At the moment the design
and time frame of this devel-
opment is still undeter-
mined.
Temporary landings only
More operational details
have emerged about the
planned Nokomis charter
boat landing at the small
county park adjoining the
south side of Albee Road
Bridge in Nokomis.


Jerris Foote, parks natu-
ralist for Sarasota County
Beaches and Natural Parks,
is working on an ordinance
for the county overall. It will
encompass all temporary
landings and locations for
vessels up to 45 feet.
The Nokomis Charter
Boat Landing will be a "pull-
up and dock" facility, with a
15-minute maximum dock-
ing for loading and unload-
ing passengers.
"Restrictions are neces-
sary because the many uses
for that area in Nokomis and
it cannot be dedicated for
one purpose," said Foote.
The landing will be 47
feet long and, include the
existing pilings, which are
being leased from the Coast
Guard. Because of high
usage, the fishing table can-
not be set aside for long
periods, but will be available
on a first-come, first-served
basis, stated Foote.
The area will remain as is,
although the pilings may be
painted, but that has not
been determined by
Sarasota County
Commissioners. A sign will
be erected specifying the
area of. the landing and its
uses.

Enhancing the
role of Women
Philanthropists and non-
profit managers from 11
participating organizations
gathered at the Venice
Community Center last.
week for a presentation by
global activist and fundrais-
er Lynn Twist.
Dr. Susan Olsen of Love-
land Center Legacy Inc. intro-
duced Twist, remarking how
she had raised more than
$150 million since starting
her Fundraising from the
Heart campaign in 1977.
It began in San Francisco,
where Twist committed her
life to ending world hunger.
At that time, she recalled, 1
billion of the 4 billion people
on the planet could not feed
themselves and their chil-
dren. Every day 44,000 people
died 24 every minute, most
of them under 5.
Almost 30 years later statis-
tics are dramatically better,
though 19,000 people are still
dying daily while the popula-
tion has grown to 6.5 billion.
Much of the success has been
achieved by enhancing the
role of women in under-
developed countries, accord-
ing to Twist.

areas deemed vulnerable to
holiday crime. This includes
mounted patrols in some
mall locations.
Here are some tips that
may prevent you from being
victimized during the .holi-
days and through the coming
year.....
Keep car doors"locked
with windows rolled up, espe-
cially after dark.
Carry keys, cash and
credit cards separately. Carry
only small amounts of cash.
Avoid carrying a purse;
use a waist pack or an inside
jacket pocket. If a purse is
necessary, carry it close to
your body, in the front, as you
would a book.
Don't show large
amounts of cash or big bills.
Criminals will note this and
either attempt pick your
pocket, or follow you to a
location where you are vul-
nerable to a larceny or a
strong-arm robbery.
Consolidate packages
and bags if possible, allowing
you a better opportunity to
respond to a situation.
Don't shop until exhaust-
ed; you are not alert then.
Park strategically, as close
to the stores as possible in a
well-lighted area. Make a-
mental note or jot down
where your vehicle is parked,


so as not to experience a
delay when you return.
Leave before closing
time, assuring you the com-
pany of others. There is safety
in numbers. V
Use an escort or mall
security if leaving alone or
after closing time. ,
Be aware, that some
thieves lurk between, under
and inside vehicles. Be wary
of vans and trucks parked
besides your car. Criminals
have been known to conceal
themselves in this manner.
They also quickly ride by in
vehicles or on motorcycles
and bicycles and snatch purs-
es from unsuspecting shop-
pers.

valuables out of sight in the
trunk.

your vehicle and engage the
alarm. When you return, and

BY ERICSTAATS
NAPLES DAILY NEWS


A Risso's dolphin rescued
off Marco Island this summer
has surprised caretakers at
Mote Marine Laboratory:
She's pregnant.
The dolphin, nicknamed
Bonnie, beached herself on a
sandbar near Caxambas Pass
in July with a male Risso's,
nicknamed Clyde. One other
stranded Risso's died, and two
others had to be euthanized.
They also were males.
Bonnie and Clyde have
been sharing a rehabilitation
tank at Mote, in Sarasota, but
it is impossible to tell wheth-
er Clyde is the fetus' father.
Mote veterinarian Charles
Manire said earlier this month
he suspects Bonnie was preg-
nant when she beached her-
self but that the fetus was
undetectable when caretak-
ers examined her the first
time.


The pregnancy was discov-
ered Nov. 30, during an ultra-
sound exam intended to find
out why Bonnie suddenly
had stopped eating, just days
before the dolphins were set
to be released back into' the
wild.
Caretakers determined the
adult dolphin had a viral
infection, unrelated' to the
pregnancy, and the release
was postponed.
The fetus "appears quite
viable," but the effect of the
virus on the fetus "remains to
be seen," caretakers wrote in
a Nov. 30 entry in an online
journal tracking the two 'adult
dolphins' recovery.
Since then, according to
the journal, Bonnie is "doing
very well again," has, regain-
ed lost weight and is eating
most meals.
News of the pregnancy

Staff at Mote Marine Laboratory's Dolphin and Whale Hospital
in Sarasota feed Bonnie and Clyde, Risso's dolphins rescued
near Caxambas Pass on July 16.

Mote Marine Laboratory hopes to be able to release Bonnie and Clyde in time for Bonnie to give birth in her natural habitat.


Mote,, but has battled back
each time.
Necropsies found parasitic
worms in the dead dolphins'
nasal cavities, but the cause of
the July stranding remains
unconfirmed.
Nlanire said he wants to
release Bonnie and Clyde at
the same time and do it' be-
fore Bonnie gives birth so the
calf can learn from the start
how to function in the wild.
The American Cetacean
Society, which takes its name
from the biological order to
which dolphin species be-
long, reports that it is not
known when Risso's dolphins
reach sexual maturity but
that it appears to happen
when they are about 9 feet
long and probably less than
13 years old.


Scientists estimate that
calving takes place in the
summer and that the gesta-
tion period for Risso's dol-
phins is 13 to 14 months.
Calves are generally 4 to 5
feet long at birth, according
to the American Cetacean
Society.
Both of the dolphins still
are taking antibiotics to fight
off infections, and they
won't be released until they
are off all medications, Mote
spokeswoman Nadine Slimak
said.
The two dolphins had
been set for release in deep
waters offshore of St. Peters-
burg in early December. A
new release date has riot
been set.
"It's pretty fluid." Slimak
said.

Festival of lights burns bright downtown 1


BY RABBI ANN WHITE
SPECIALTY THE GONDOLIER SUN

Hanukkah is a celebration of religious
freedom; of the victory of a tiny, yet brave
band of Maccabees over the powerful
armies of the Greeks; of the miracle of oil as
the tiny vial found in the destroyed Jewish
Temple was able to light the Menorah for
eight days. It is a joyous and beautiful cele-
bration and festival of the lights.
This year, for me personally, and for the
Jewish Community Center ofVenice, it was a
celebration of many firsts.
This was the first public Hanukkah cere-
mony of this sort that we have had, and my
first Hanukkah as a rabbi.
And what a time we've had.
The first night as we set up at the gazebo,
we felt like the tiny band of NMaccabees. Joel
Kreiss, our president, had made 20 copies of a
candle-lighting service thinking that if there
were not 20 people, we could use some for the
next night.
Fortunately, he brought the jelly doughnuts
he had purchased for the entire eight days.
(Traditional foods for Hanukkah are fried in oil
as a commemoration of the miracle of the oil
- so we eat things such as potato latkes and
jelly doughnuts.)
As folks began coming, we discovered that


we had enough children to be our living
menorah. This made it even more special with
each child holding a candle.
And as the gazebo filled, we looked in awe
as people kept coming from all directions. Just
as the Maccabees looked out on the hills of
Judea and saw the vast numbers, so did we -
only for us, it was with joy as we saw members
of the Jewish Communiity Center of Venice
and their families, and new people from.out of
town, and folks just walking by deciding to
stop to celebrate with us. The crowd grew to
about 150 people.
The next night was the same a beautiful
crowd, many of whom were visitors to Venice,
along with our own members. Someone
described our living menorah as living and
wviggly.
The kids played gelt (chocolate candy
wrapped in foil, shaped like a coin) toss and
dreidel games. We sang, we ate, we
schmoozed. It was joyful. It was beautiful. It
was inspiring.
We look forward to our remaining days of
celebration. We thank all of you who cele-
brated with us. And we are inspired by the
energy and vitality and the momentum we
are enjoying.
Who knows what fun we will have in
2006?
Happy holidays to all.

Americans were scarce in Bali Part II


Imagine being seated on the white cushions in this thatch-roofed "bale" (relaxation pavilion) surrounded by koi ponds


STORY AND PHOTOS BY KIM COOL. FEATURES EDITOR

A mericans were scarce in Bali
in November and December.


Part I of this four-part story
of Bangkok and Bali appeared
on the front of the Our Town
section of the Venice Gondo-
lier Sun on Dec.23. Parts III I
will be in the Our Town Travel
Section in January.

At 3:15 p.m. our Thai
Airlines flight touched down
in Bali.
It was the third visit my
daughter Heidi and I had
flown into that tiny island in
the middle of Indonesia, and
our first visit since the two ter-
rorist bombings on that his-
torically tranquil paradise.
The first, at a nightclub in
busy Kuta Beach, occurred
shortly after Sept. 11.: The
second occurred Oct. 5, just
six weeks before our long-,
planned trip was to begin.
"Why are you going there,"
several concerned friends'
asked in the days leading up
to our departure.
Despite U.S. State Depart-
ment warnings about visiting
Indonesia, where Bali is lo-
cated, we were determined
to return, if only, to let the
Balinese, know that we care
about them. We felt that by
avoiding busy tourist areas.
like Kuta Beach and staying
in small resorts, we would
probably be as safe there as
at home. And, we were not
traveling through Jakarta to
get there. Our flight was via
Bangkok, Thailand, which I
think of as the Switzerland of
Asia. We knew Bali would be
different. We did not know
how different even though we
have been keeping in touch
with Balinese friends met on
earlier visits.
The changes in Bali since
those bombings were appar-
ent as soon as we deplaned.
There is a new visa for
which we paid $25 at the
Njurah Rai International
Airport at Denpassar. It is
pasted into one's passport at
immigration and stamped on
entry and again on departure.
The other obvious change
was the pace at the airport,
which we remembered as
hectic, even at midnight,
years earlier.
This time, we arrived on a
flight that was less than full, to


an airport that was quiet and
almost too orderly. What had
seemed like hundreds of
eager baggage handlers had
been replaced with about a
dozen badge-wearing porters.


If anything, given the lack of
tourists to Bali, these porters
were even more eager to earn
our American dollar tips.
With two such helpers we
quickly found our Ritz-
Carlton driver and were set-
ded into the van for the ride to
the resort where we would
spend the first three nights of
our 10-night stay on the
island. Taxi fare from the air-
port to the hotel would be
about 55,000 rupiahs or $5.50


Five times a day, snacks such as this lunch-time offering were
presented to member guests entitled to enter the club room of
the Ritz-Carlton Bali.


for the 10-kilometer -
(6.2 miles) ride.
The Ritz-Carlton A row c
Bali is in Jimbaran, edged
south and west of Indian C
the airport on the
bulbous southern
tip of Bali and fortunately,
well south of the
busy tourist corner where
the bombing had occurred
even though that bombing
was in limbaran. We acwally
passed the bombing site a
few days later when we were
en route to the next stop on
our itinerary.
In the ensuing days we
experienced the best of the
best at what has to be one of
the finest resorts in the world.
At the entrance to the com-
pound on which the resort is
built we stopped first at a
well-guarded gate where
guards checked the car and
the occupants. Wielding long
green wands, the guards
checked the outside of the
van before peering inside at
the occupants. We noticed
this again and again at virt-
ually every hotel and resort
on the island. The Balinese
are doing everything they
can to protect against any
more disturbances. In the
case of the Ritz-Carlton, we

felt extra safe.because the
gate is so far from the actual
buildings on the 77-hectar
property, one of the largest
resort properties on the
island. Offering additional
protection is the cliff on the
West side of the resort 184
steps above Kubu Beach, a
secluded private cove with
white sand. The beach
belongs to the resort and is for
the use of any guests willing
to deal with all those steps.
There are
towels and lounges there and
even some limited service of
drinks I was quite happy to
take pictures from above.
Cleared by the guards, our
van continued along the
scenic drive to the main
entrance of the four-story
hotel, its height dictated by
the height of the island's co-
conut palm trees. No build-
ings in Bali can be taller than
those majestic trees that
nearly cover the island.
Within minutes we were
being escorted to the club

Padi is surrounded by tropical gardens, ponds filled with koi fish and offers panoramic views of the hotel grounds, including the
main swimming pool.


floor where we would be
checked in and then taken
to our room, also was on that
floor, the top floor of the
building. The view of the
grounds and the Indian
Ocean was breathtaking and
seemed to change with the
shifting sunlight. I must have
taken 30 pictures from our
balcony,. in order to capture
all those different Balinese
moods.
The club room was open
for most of the day and
evening, offering, breakfast,
mid-morning snacks, light
luncheon items, afternoon
tea, appetizers and drinks at
5 p.m. and sweets and cor-
dials after dinner. Best of all,
there always was a filled
bowl of snake fruit or ram-
butan, my favorite Balinese
fruits. Finger bananas, grapes
and apples completed the
fruit offerings, which chang-
ed a bit each day.
Check-in at the club room
was delightful and included
more chilled cloths, some-
thing to drink. and snacks
while we offered our credit
card and signed in as our bags
were delivered to our room.
There are 47 club rooms and
suites on that level, which
has its own concierge, extra
staff and privacy. Although,
given the lack of tourists
everywhere in Bali these days,
privacy was not an issue.
The hotel's main floor,
where the entrance, gift
shops, ballrooms and other
public rooms were located,
was on the third floor. The
resort's design was heavily
influenced by traditional
Balinese design and includes
distinctive hand-carved
doors, limestone carvings,

Christmas baby miracle












'--





















PHOTO COlUITES i OF SARASOTA COUNT i'HEALTH DEPARTMENT
Last Christmas, Gabriela Guzman-Morales delivered a 1-pound, 13-ounce baby girl. When Gabriela was 15 weeks preg-
nant, her water broke and she was promptly admitted to the hospital. Sarasota County Health Department obstetricians
provided daily medical care until baby Emily Delgado-Guzman was born three months later on Christmas day, Dec. 25,
2004.The mother and baby recently came to the health department for a medical visit and the staff was delighted to see '
that baby Emilywas beautiful, healthy ahd almriost walking. A true medical miracle! Sarasota County Health Department's
Women's Care Center has four board-certified obstetricians in Sarasota and Venice who provide prenatal care to women,
many of whom have high-risk pregnancies who are uninsured or underinsured and would not otherwise receive pregnan-
cy care. The health department specializes in high-risk pregnancies and their obstetricians deliver approximately 25 per-
cent of all the babies born in Sarasota County.

A "REALITY CHECK"
There is only one person who can save your teeth you! A consistent
daily home hygiene program of brushing, flossing, rinsing is required.
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?
Remember, most denture wearers have one thing in common. They did
not effectively control plaque on their natural teeth.

Most conversations that
focus on the air we breathe
concentrate on the environ-
mental factors that affect us
from outdoor air pollution. -
However, the air inside our
homes and offices is equally if
not more important. The
average American spends 90
percent of their time indoors.
More than 65 percent of that
time is spent at home. This
can mean exposure to very
high levels of indoor air pollu-
tion.
Most homeowners are

homes and apartments are
being better insulated and
sealed. Although this will
cause a decrease in your elec-

amount of air that gets
exchanged and refreshed. In

VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 7B


FRIDAY. DEC. 30.2005


The Women's


Resource Center


is branching out


Free winter concert


BY LESLIE YARD
SPECIALTY THE GONDOLIER SUN

The Women's Resource
Center of Sarasota County is
partnering with Catholic
Charities Diocese of Venice to
offer its flagship Challenge
Program to women at Our
Mother's House in Venice.
Our Mother's House provides
shelter and guidance for sin-
gle mothers and their chil-
dren. Women work or attend
school and are required to
participate in Life Skills
Classes. In January, one of
those Life Skills Classes will
be the WRCSC Challenge
Program.
The WRCSC Challenge
Program is designed, for
women in transition. It is a
personal growth and empow-'
erment program to help
women build confidence and
self esteem, develop coping
skills and relationship skills.
The program teaches women
how to set boundaries, make
choices and stay well emo-
tionally and physically. It even
helps with money manage-
ment, resume writing and
skills for getting the right job.


The program is the same
program as the one offered
every month at the Women's
Resource Center office in
Venice. In January, however,
the course will be taken to
Our Mothers House to work
with this special group of
women.
The WRCSC is branching
out in a different direction in
March. In March the WRCSC
will again partner with
Manatee Community College
to offer their "Retirement
Challenge" class. This special
Challenge Program was first
offered last semester at the
Manatee Community College
campus in Venice and will be
offered again March.9-16.
The Retirement Challenge
is similar to the standard
Challenge program for

Hoping for the Moons for Christmas
r <. -Moons 'mu rismas..


N AMFFOH. EN ASUSY B


STAFF WRITER

Soo and Paul Moon had'
decided not to put up their
Christmas tree this year. With
two of their children away in
the service Martyn in Iraq
and Haley in Germany it
just didn't seem worth it to,
put up any decorations.
But that's all changed now,
thanks to a deck of cards.
The Moons' son, Martyn,
21, had a chance to come
home from Iraq for the holi-
days, and it depended on
him pulling the right card.
He and others in his Army.
unit drew cards to determine
who would get leave. The
three he pulled won him a
15-day visit home.
So just before Christrihas,
the bridge crew member was
hitching rides on C130 trans-
ports, trying to make his way
to Southwest Florida. It took
him 10 days. Fortunately, his
clock for the 15-day leave,


didn't start ticking until he
got home.
His sister Haley, 20, a
medic stationed in Germany,
wasn't supposed to come
home, either. However, when
her brother's trip was ap-
proved, the Army told her she
could come home, too.
Haley bought her own
plane ticket, then was told
that she couldn't go after all.
But because she already had
a ticket, the Army decided to
let her use it.
"So when we learned that
they were both coming home.
we had to rush around, put
up the tree and get some dec-
orations out front," Soo Moon
said. ':
Now the whole family,
including their two daughters
Lisa and Julie, who live in
North Port, will also be home
for a big turkey dinner on
Christmas .
Martyn was in transit just
as the Iraqi elections began.
"I was so worried that my


leave would get, canceled
because of the elections," he
said.
Thanksfrom
fellow Americans
Martyn said he was!
impressed with the show of
support he's had. During the
last leg of his flight on a
commercial airline, a first-
class passenger gave up his
seat for Martyn.
When he departed the.
plane and strode through the
airport, "People stood up and'
started clapping. I got a stand-
ing ovation," he said.-
Several people came up to
shake his hand and thank him
for serving his country. Even
around town, strangers have
expressed their appreciation.
"I had to get some clothes,
because all I had was the
fatigues on my back," Martyn
said. "In Wal-Mart, when they
saw my uniform they gave
me a discount."
His father, Paul, added,


My new yearlutio


ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST


I am not sure if they are
x-ishes 'or resolutions, but
here is a list of deeds I would
like to see happen or at least
get started in 2006:
The gateway signage for
South Venice has been work
in progress for over four
years. I wish FDOT would,
allow this signage to be
constructed in the median
areas of South U.S. 41 as orig-,
inally planned in 2001.
I wish that a solution to


red tide will be found.
The widening of our major
roads in Sarasota County --
Honore, 1-75, and University
Parkway is on the books.
Under construction is the,
widening of Center Road. I
wish widening roads would
be reduced in favor of fund-
ing alternate means of mass
transportation systems.
I wish the goals of 2004
for- a sustainable Sarasota
County would be imple-,
mented by putting them on a
fast .track, such as green
building development as an
economic' development
opportunity; energy conser-
vation with air quality and
water conservation initia-
tives; and waste reduction.
For the South Venice Civic
Association, I am resolved to
help the board of directors
take the lead in increasing
memberships, create active
committees to carry out the
objectives and actions for the


year, and diversify activities
at our community center for
more youth involvement and
younger families.
I read with great interest
the Community Conversa-.
tions Final Repon that re-
flects the values and legacies
of theVenice area population.
The highest value was our
natural environment, follow-
ed by our "private" ferry,
residential ahd safe neigh-
borhoods.
The legacies we would
like to pass on were smart
growth, economic sustain-
ability, clean environment.'
beaches, and affordable
housing.
For 2006, shall we make a
start?
Happy New Year, every-
body!
Ellen Hillstrom is the
South Venice Civic
Association.development

column for this page.

Martyn drew a card and received leave by chance.

"Yeah, so now he wants to
put his uniform on again
to do more. shopping after
Christmas!"
Martyn also-said he was
touched when a young
woman approached him to
shake his hand in the aisle of a
store. She said he reminded
her of her own husband, who
was still stationed in Iraq.
Cheeseburger in paradise
Martyn is based out ofTallil
Air Force Base in Iraq as a
bridge crew member with the
Army's 74th Multi Role Bridge
Company. Their role
is to rebuild bridges.
"The Air Force blew up
just about every bridge over
the Euphrates River during
the first part of the war,"
Maryn said. "So now we
have to build bridges for 'the
people again."
Martyn said his unit has
been working in 12-hour
shifts. .
When asked about Iraq,
Mlartyn said, "At first I thought
I would be used to the heat,
coming from Florida. But in
the summer it gets way over
100 degrees and it's brutal.
Also, there's no green any-
where just a few bushes by.
the river is all they have."
He said that dust is every-
where and it gets into every-
thing, including clothing and
electronics.
Although he has not inter-
acted with the local people,
very much, he said, they
have worked often with the
Iraqi army. .
"They're pretty cool, actu-
ally, and mostly the local peo-
ple are really happy we're
there and appreciate what we
are doing for them," he said.
Asked what he misses
most, other than his family,
Martin didn't hesitate to say
"the food. The first place I
went was Friday's for some
American food."
While there is a Burger
King in a trailer on the base,
he said, it is riot like the
Burger King at home.
Martvn said that he and
his fellow soldiers really
appreciate the letters and
packages that people from


the States send them.
"We love getting cards
from strangers telling about'
their hometowns and how'
they're celebrating the holi-
days," he said. "And the toi-
letries and stuff that people
send, those things are really
appreciated."
Soo had asked Martyn to
bring her something special,
to, decorate the Christmas
tree, but all he could find was
a plush camel wearing a flop-
py hat and a banner saying
"Someone in Iraq loves you."
"I guess they just are not
geared. up for souvenirs,"
Martyn said.
A job in Germany
Haley brought her boy-
friend, Sean Vincent, of Cat-
skill, N.Y, home to meet her
family. Haley is a medic and
Sean is an aviation operation
specialist. .
Unlike her brother, Haley
said, her work is more like a
regular job.
."I work five days a week
and have ny iveekends free.".
she, said. 've been able' to
travel to Hollahd and Austria,
and we can go out to eat on
weekends if we want."
Haley is now qualified as
an emergency medical tech-
nician and is getting a lot.of
practical, experience in her
chosen profession, the.
health-care field.
"I can give people stitches
there," she said. "I could not
get that kind of experience


here."
She entered the Army
because she could get both
training and the GI bill to help ,
pay for college. Haley, a 2004
North Port graduate, said
when her tour is up in 2007,.'
she will probably re-enlist
because "I like this work, and
I can continue to work toward
college."
She said she would like to
be stationed in Italy.
Dry
Unlike Haley, who has
been able to sample German
beers and wines, soldiers in-
Iraq do not get any alcohol
atall.
"It's not commonly found)
in the country anyway, and ;
there is no beer or any other
alcoholic drinks on base.
"Besides," he joked, "it's
hard to build a bridge if you7
can't stand up straight."
He said when his tour is up,
he. too, would probably re-
enlist.
Before joining the Army, ,
he studied architecture for
two years at the .Uhiversirtof
South Fl'orida. Nowv, thouig;,'
he likes the Army and is con-
sidering making it a career.
, For the next few days, the
Moons will enjoy having their
son and daughter home for
the holidays. After that, they'll
be counting the days until
Martyn and the rest of the)
74th Multi Role Bridge
Company are back from Iraq,
for good.

SeaWorld Orlando and-
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay
Vice President of Marketing
Joe Couceiro say the parks
will revolutionize the way to
visit theme parks offering
unlimited admission and
flexibility for the price of a
single-day ticket. For vaca-
tioners, the parks are elimi-
nating the need for rigid
scheduling, allowing them to
"come and go" as they please
during their vacation with.
any one-day ticket (up to
seven consecutive days). For
residents, the parks -are
bringing back their most
popular offer in history pay
for a day, come back all year
in 2006. There are no black-
out dates, making this an
especially good deal.
The Fun Card is available
at the parks' front gates, at
AAA offices and online at
SeaWorld.com and Busch-
Gardens.com.
For either park, guests
simply exchange any one-
day admission for a person-
alized pass that allows them
unlimited visits during their
vacation to that same park
(up to six additional days).

Coming to SeaWorld Or-
lando in 2006, Believe is the
most ambitious killer whale
show in the company's his-
tory, and marks the greatest
investment the company has
ever made in a show. Believe
showcases majestic killer
whales with awe-inspiring
choreography, an elaborate
three-story set, original mus-
ical score and four panoram-
ic LED screens. A first for
SeaWorld, the intense chore-
ography of the new show


creates a breathtaking "killer
whale ballet" of grace and
agility, as every movement of
the powerful whales each
weighing 6,000 to 10,000
pounds is matched to the
corresponding beat of a'stir-
ring, original musical score.
As America's only dive
coaster, Sheikra has already
become a legend since open-
ing in May. It has cemented
Busch Garden's reputation as
Florida's coaster king with a
record-breaking 200-foot, 90-
degree vertical drop, a sec-
ond, 138-foot dive into an
underground tunnel, and a
water feature finale. No mat-,
ter what time of year, Busch
Gardens guests can come
back again and again for a
full calendar of special events,
including the Real Music
Concert Series and return
engagement of Irish Thunder
(January-March), Summer
Nights and Florida's top-rated
haunted attraction, Howl-O-
Scream.
The single-day admission
price to SeaWorld Orlando
will be $61.95 for adults and
$49.95 for children, starting
Jan. 2. The single-day ad-
mission price to Busch
Gardens Tampa Bay will be
$57.95 for adults and $47.95
for children, starting Jan. 2.

Saturday, Jan. 7 is not just
any other day. It's the day

families in need throughout
our community. Last year, the

in scholarships to more than
400 families. This year's
theme "Building Our Future"
highlights the construction
of the YMCA's new 55,000-
square-foot, $8 million state-
of-the-art facility, scheduled
for completion in early 2007.
This year's Black Tie event
features the raffle of a 2006
Harley Davidson XL 883
Sportster; $50 raffle tickets
now available at the YMCA,
and the live auction of a 2006
Pontiac Solstice Convertible;

Sarah Huttinger's (Jennifer

finally agreed to marry her
boyfriend Jeff (Mark Ruffalo), but
isn't at all sure that marriage is

she's not sure what she wants in
general. As conflicted as she is
about her love life, her professional
life isn't much better an aspiring
journalist, Sarah's career has
stalled at the New York Times obitu-
ary column. To top it all off, she's

Somewhat of a black sheep,
Sarah's never quite felt a part of

The Squid
and the Whale
Noah Baumbach's new film is an
excruciatingly humane, often hilari-
ous portrait of a disintegrating fam-
ily in mid-1980s Brooklyn. Set in
the stately, yet off-kilter, neighbor-
hood of Park Slope, the film tells
the story of the Berkmans, a quin-
tessentially New York family strug-
gling to keep it together. Family
patriarch Bernard (Jeff Daniels) is
a published author and writing
teacher whose insecurity over his
own lack of recognitioncontinues
to plague him. Meanwhile, his
wife Joan (Laura Linney) is grap-
pling with her own sense of
unsettlement. Their sons, who are
caught in the crossfire, express
their confusion in different ways:
16-year-old Walt (Jesse
Eisenberg) tries to pass off Pink
Floyd's "Hey You" as his own hit in
the school talent show, while his
12-year-old brother Frank (Owen
Kline) begins to explore his bud-
ding sexuality. When Bernard and
Joan finally decide to separate,
the family must confront their
unraveling situation head on.

minate the human consequences
of the fierce pursuit of wealth and
power. As a career CIA operative
(George Clooney) begins to
uncover the disturbing truth about
the work he has devoted his life
to, an up-and-coming oil broker
(Matt Damon) faces an unimagin-
able family tragedy and finds
redemption in his partnership
with an idealistic Gulf prince
(Alexander Siddig). A corporate
lawyer (Jeffrey Wright) faces a
moral dilemma as he finesses
the questionable merger of two
powerful U.S. oil companies, while
across the globe, a disenfran-
chised 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

Bellagio offers tranquil island living


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Bellagio, the only gated
community on the island of
Venice, was built out ahead
of its time for a reason. In
addition to its location
along the Intracoastal
Waterway, the community
of Mediterranean revival
homes has an active home-


owners association and
social life, plus homes that
are accelerating in value as
fast as any on the island.
Homes currently for sale in
Bellagio are few and far
between. One that has only
recently been offered for sale
is at 326 Rio Terra. Its building
site backs up to the edge of
Bellagio, which affords the
home extra privacy from'the


fencing that surrounds the
community.
With three bedrooms and
two full baths, the 2003-built
home is available with or
without a turnkey furniture
package.
The house features an
open floor plan with both an
eat-in kitchen and separate
dining area as well as a
screened lanai for al fresco


dining. Is it only Florida
homes that have so many
places to eat?
Bedrooms are generally
large with a 13- by' 16-foot
master bedroom and tow
others measuring 11 by 12
and 11 by 13 feet. The great
room also is generous in size
at 21 by 17 feet.
An extra-deep two-car
attached garage offers added


There is room for a king-size bed, seating area and more in the

Volume and tray ceilings
add to the spacious feel of the
1,818-square foot home.
There is a community
pool. clubhouse and tennis
court plus outdoor lights. The
Bellagio Association fees
cover irrigation, landscaping,
lawn care, manager, outdoor
lights, recreational facilities
and a reserve fund.
There are sidewalks within
the community and the
Venetian Waterway Park is


just outside the boundary.
The walkway along the
intracoastal offers access as
far south as Caspersen Beach
and as far north as downtown
Venice via Venice Avenue.
Listing price for the house
is $499,900. The turnkey fur-
niture package is available for
an additional $20,000.
For more information, or
an appointment to see the
house, call the listing agent
Jeanne Corbin at (941) 485-
