ionnaires still not in new building

Hundreds gather to raise
their voices against war.

SILL learning
Old "dogs" learn new
tricks through a popular
program.


Lack of oversight could be
one reason why American
Legion No-Vel Post 159 mem-
bers still are not in their new
building.
"Our building committee
was dissolved back in Sep-
tember," former legion build-
ing committee chair loe How-
ell said, "and we turned every'-
thing over to the officers."
Howell stopped short of
pointing fingers at anyone in
particular.
"As legionnaires," he said,
"we have to support each
other."


The city has so far refused
to issue a certificate of occu-
pancy.
City building officials
could not be reached for
comment.
Howell said there were a
number of problems city
inspectors found with the
building, including a roof that
leaked.
"That issue has been
resolved," he said. "but we are
trying to get them (contrac-
tor) to fix a downspout on the
east side of the building."
The building was sup-
posed to be ready for occu-
pancy Nov. I1.
Howell said one potential


Foggy impressions


issue arose that could have
delayed the move even more.
"They iinspectors) were
out here shooting elevations
of the slab and foundations,"
Howell said. "They thought'
there might be a problem but
turns out everything was OK."
Howell said the legion-
naires do not want to move
into die building until every-
thing is "just right."
He said he does not know
when the city will issue a CO.
Up to speed
Meanwhile, members of
the Venice-Nokomis Elks
Lodge 1854 are snug in their
new digs.


"We moved Dec. 12 and
now we are up to speed,"
Exalted Ruler John Miller
said. "We even had our New
Year's Eve party here."
The Legion and the Elks
had similar deals with devel-
oper Mike Miller. Miller
swapped properties with.
both organizations and in
return built and paid for new
buildings for each.
"Mike Miller has been very
good to us," Chair of the
Board and Lodge Advisor Dan
Hutchinson said. "We had a
mortgage on the old building
and he paid that. He paid the
architect, the builders, and
we are debt free."


The Elk's new, nearly
11,000-square-foot building
is located at 1021 Discovery
Way, Nokomis. That is north
of Laurel Road and east of
Interstate 75.
Hutchinson said the Elks
are open for lunches six days
a week, and dinners five
nights a week.
The former Elks building at
119 E. Venice Ave. was 52
years old. Hutchinson said
just maintenance alone cost
almost $2,000 per month.

Oldest house saved; trees to go?

DEATHS 11A


BY JJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Saving South County's old-
est house from the wrecking
ball was a worthwhile cause.
Chopping down more
than a half dozen trees so that
house has a new home isn't,
at least in the opinion of one
Venice resident.
Charles Cheves has written
both city hall and the Venice
Gondolier Slun in an effort to
stop seven trees at 409
Granada Ave. from being
chopped down. All of the tall,


native pine trees are marked
for removal in favor of the
1896 home, which the city
paid to relocate in order pre-
vent its demolition.
Those leading the Lord
house restoration project say
the trees must be removed to
make room for the wrap-
around porch and to protect
the structure from falling
trees.
Initial plans are to replace
the pines with citrus trees to
replicate the home's original
spot in a 19th century citrus
grove.


"I wholeheartedly approve
of the committee's plans to
restore the Lord house and
furnish it appropriately, mak-
ing it available to the public to
see how people lived during
the days of 'Horse and
Chaise,' Cheves wrote in a
letter to city hall. "However, I
... object to replacing the
pines with a mini orange
grove.
City Manager Marty Black
said none of the trees will be
cut down until the Venice
Historical Commission and
other preservation commit-,
tees ha\e a final restoration
plan that includes funding.

South County's only public
housing complex came dan-
gerously close to being shut
down or taken over by the
federal government in late
2003.
And then Peter Lopez
came riding in as Venice
Housing Authority's new
executive director two years
ago. The then 50-year-old
began enforcing long-ignored
federal housing rules, held
residents accountable, ma-
neuvered VHA through nu-
merous Venice building code
citations and corrected 21
U.S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development vio-
lations.
Since his hiring Jan. 12,
2004, Lopez has taken Grove
Terrace off of HUD's troubled
housing list and into the com-
pliance category. VHA and
Lopez also are working to-
ward a Feb. 1 deadline to ap-
ply for tax-credit financing to
fund redevelopment and ex-
pansion of Grove Terrace
from its 50 apartment units to
as many as 144 rental units..
So it came as a surprise to
local officials when Lopez
submitted his resignation let-
ter Dec. 30.
"It goes without sayinghe's
done a great job of.'tuming


the place around," said Rick
Tacy, city council's long-time
liaison to \VHA. "When he
came in, all the wheels had lit-
erally fallen off.... Peter came
in and only had three months
to get it turned around.
"We could have just as easy
done what Sarasota (city) did
Sand turn (the housing author-
ity) over to HUD. Instead,
Peter and VHA turned it
around themselves."
In the. resignation letter,
Lopez states that he has no
specific plans. His last day on
the job would be March 31.
Lopez declined to com-
ment when contacted Tues-
day, saying his resignation
has not been officially accept-
ed by VHA chair Richard
Appell. The two, have yet to
meet.
Appell was surprised by
the resignation letter, though
he knew Lopez has received
, numerous job offers to work
elsewhere.
"He came to us and got us
out of trouble. ... He's a very
talented guy," Appell said. "I
know, if he wanted to, he
could've left us a while ago. I
was just hoping he'd stay with
us a bit longer."
Goals accomplished

Forms will not be available
before that time.
Schools with spaces avail-
able have'been identified
through preliminary surveys,
but the exact number of open

mined.
Choice selections will be
approved through a comput-
erized lottery process, not on
a first-come, first-served bas-
is. Children will automatically


be assigned to their districted

application is received.
Parents will be notified of

,Fewer options for School
Choice at open schools will

STAFF WRITER

Jail-siting officials will be
in Venice Jan. 7 to get cri-
teria from South County
residents to help locate Sara-
sota County's 300-bed, medi-
um security jail.
"We wanted all country
residents to feel they could
contribute," said Sarasota
County General Services
'Director Steve Cork.
p


He said the Venice Com-
munity Center was chosen
over the South County Ad-
ministration Center because
of its size.
"We felt it's becoming a
bigger subject," Cork said.
The first meeting to cre-
ate and debate siting criteria
was short on people but long
on suggestions.
"I thought we received a
lot of valuable input." Cork
.said. ..


The information came
primarily from Nokomis area
residents. They forced the
Sarasota County Commis-
sion to halt its effort to site
the jail next to the county
landfill north of Laurel Road
and east of Interstate'75.
A new search began last
month.
Sarasota architectural firm
Barger & Dean was hired to
be the county's prime con-
sultant in the jail's siting and
design.
Barger & Dean President


Stuart Barger said no site,
including the landfill, will be
eliminated until all factors
are considered.
Barger said the top sites
will be chosen based on the
criteria.
"All of the input will help
us as we move forward," Cork
said.
Siting officials say 190
locations are being consid-
ered. The group is expected
to present six or more sites

City agrees to protect diocese in North Port


If the Diocese of Venice ir
because of what North Pc
on diocese property, the

BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

Eight months after the city
of North Port encroached on
private property, the city and
the Diocese of Venice have
signed an indemnity agree-
ment.
In February, the Sun dis-
covered the city was dumping
on and using property that
belonged to the church with-
out permission.
The 27-acre site on Cham-
berlain Boulevard belongs to
the Diocese of Venice, which
bought the land in Septem-
ber 1989. It abuts city of
North Port property.
In February, Raymond
Haddad, director of the
building commission for the
Diocese of Venice, said the
land is the future home of a
parish it plans to build in
North Port.
Haddad also said the city
never had permission nor
did any lease agreement exist
for the city to use the land.
The city allegedly mistakenly
used some of this land to
bury old batteries and other
waste coming into the make-
shift landfill.
Before the environmental
indemnity was signed in No-
vember, new City Manager
Steven Crowell said he spoke
with Public Works Director
James Bursick about past
activities on' the church's
property.
"Bursick said to me there,
is nothing -buried there,"
Crowell said.
The agreement states that
if any "hazardous substance"
is found on the church's
property. North Port will cor-
Srect and--defend the Diocese"
i 'Venice agahst any plains
from either direct or indirect
actions of the city.
"This means when the
diocese goes to build, ard
they find anything, the city
will have to pay to correct
the problem North Port
Commissioner Fred Tower III
said, adding that includes
costs of clean-tip and any
fines the church might have
to pay.
The agreement
The agreement defines
"hazardous substance" to
mean "any toxic or hazardous
wastes, pollutants, or sub-
stances, including \%ithoutt
limitation: polyvchlorinated
biphenyls (PCBl: petroleum
products or byproduticts."
It also further defines
"hazardous substances" listed
now or in the future un-


ncurs any liability
ort allowed to be dumped
city will have to pay.

der several acts, including: the
Comprehensive Environ-
mental Response, Compen-
sation and Liability Act of
1980; the CleanWaterAct; and
any chemical substances or
mixtures regulated under the
Toxic Substance Control Act
of 1976.
Also covered are any toxic
or pollutant now regulated
under any federal, state, or
local laws.
The agreement will also
cover future owners of the
property if the church ever
sells it.
Haddad was unavailable
for comment on the agree-
ment.
The city's nearby dump site
was also closed to the public.
Still, several old Dumpsters
and other debris are now
behind a fence outside what
the city deemed the dump
site last year.

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


away altogether.


In most cases, you can make a -
reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you
know what you're looking for, and knowing
what you're looking for can help you
prevent little problems from growing into
costly and unmanageable ones.
To help homesellers deal with this issue
before their home is listed, a free report
entitled "11 'Things You Need to Know to
Pass Your Home Inspection" has been
compiled which explains the issues involved.
To hear a brief recorded message
about how to order your free copy of
this report, call 1-866-214-7091 and
enter ID 7006. You can call anytime, 24
hours a day, 7 days a week. Call NOW
to learn how to ensure a home
inspection doesn't cost you the sale of
your home.

County apologizes for North Port lot errors


Officials are still trying to shake off the effects of a
mistake in the posted prices for abandoned lots
that may generate up to $70 million in revenue
for Sarasota County and North Port.


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT EDITOR
Sarasota County officials
sent a letter to real estate bro-
kers and residents apologiz-
ing for a processing error that
led to incorrect information
being posted about aban-
doned lot prices.
For four days, the Fisher
Auction Company Web site
listed some of the 1,917 lots as
having a $12,000 opening bid.
Some real estate agents.
immediately received calls
from interested bidders.
However, after learning these
lots were inaccurately priced
and the new beginning bid
was $32,000, some people
were angered and others lost
interest in the auction.
In addition to the pricing
errors, some lots scheduled
for sale during the second
and third sessions were mis-
takenly included in the first


group.
"I want to assure you that
the minimum prices as
assigned by Sarasota County's
contract appraiser, Roger
Hettema of Hettema, Saba &
Walch, have not changed,"
wrote Larry Arnold, Public
Works manager for Sarasota
County. "In addition, Sarasota
County, Fisher Auction Com-
pany and Hettema, Saba' &
Walch have instituted addi-
tional internal controls to
assure the accuracy of any
future information about the
(abandoned) lot sale." '
North Port will share the
proceeds with Sarasota
County in a 55-45 split. The.
sale of the lots is estimated to
bring in about $70 million.
What's not there
Lots and prices currently
listed on the Web site only
include lots to be sold during
the first of three online auc-


tion sessions. Some lots with
lower minimum prices are
scheduled for the second and
third online sessions, which
begin Jan. 30 and end Feb. 20.
Sarasota County and
Fisher Auction, which was
hired by the city and county,
urge bidders not to rely on
'any price, lot or parcel identi-
fication number, auction
grouping or other data posted
from Dec. 23-27.
Some of the lots are over-
size while other, cheaper ones
are4isted in flood zones or in
areas where there are no fire
hydrants, power lines or
stores.
In some of the lots at the
farthermost area of the city,"
the fire department response
time would likely be more
than 10 minutes, especially
since there are no street signs.
While these are some
things bidders might want to
consider, Fisher Auction
Company is confident the
land will be purchased with
little problems in the upcom-
ing auction.
Florida Power & Light offi-
cials said while there is no
power in some of these areas,


it would work with the city
once customers buy the lots.
This will help determine what
type of power lines must be
installed.
Some of the lots on the list
frequently flood. Some of the
culverts are clogged and
.some of the roads are
unpaved. While commission-
ers budget money each year
to repair city roads and
drainage areas, the likelihood
of areas in the east end of
town getting much attention
is slim. This means there
would be no sidewalks lead-
ing to some of the areas
where these lots are located.

'W here's the marketing?'
Earlier this year, the :city's
growth committee contem-
,.plated asking commissioners
for a moratorium on new
building permits in some of
the easternmost areas of the.
city, where some of the aban-
doned lots are for sale. One
reason was because this land
was not in an area for the fire
department and ambulance
units to service within the six-
to eight-minute. response


time.
The company doing the
appraisals did not look at all
of the lots listed for the auc-
tion. However, there were two
appraisals done on some of
the 1,900 lots because the
market values increased from
the spring to the summer.
There will be a live auction
Feb. 28 at the North Port
Performing Arts Center. .
The number of people
actually registered to bid on
property is still relatively
small, according to some lo-
cal real estate agents.
Brian Hardgrove of ReMax
Palm Realtor said the city and
county should have marketed
the auction more aggressive-
ly.
"I can't help but wonder,
where's the marketing for the
sale of the lots?" Hargrove


said. "I have been.waiting and
looking and it seems like the
only publicity they county is
getting is from the newspa-
pers. This should be more
widespread; let everyone in
on it.We need to involve more
people. Where's the national
campaign?"
Fisher Auction Company
spent hundreds of dollars
doing an online and interna-
tional campaign for the auc-
tion. This will be paid for
through the lot sales as well as
the 6 percent commission
split by the auction house and
brokers.

pany at (888) 425-2322.

It's eaLrly; keep those rTesoljutions g ing

It's early, keep those resol utio ns. goring-


There are lots of options for self-improvement,
but the old standby losing weight is still
about the most popular.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER
So you say you made a res-
olution on NewYear's Eve.
Have you broken it yet?
Don't worry. According to
one national survey, less than
30 percent of people who
make resolutions break them
by mid-February.
Stopping smoking, losing
weight, being nicer, getting a
better job are all traditional
resolutions, while giving to
the poor, saving the environ-
ment and bringing peace to
the world are for the ,more
ambitious.
An unscientific survey of
local residents found a tradi-
tional mix of what they will be
doing or giving up, and a few
odd options.
"I want to learn Spanish,"
said Faith Reardon, 48. "I also
want to lose 15 pounds. The
Spanish is to expand myself,
arid the weight is for my
daughter's spring wedding."
Like Reardon, many peo-
ple have some motivation for
their particular resolution.
This is a key for success,
according to experts who say
that, without specific goal to
reach in a specified time, peo-
ple are doomed to failure.
Gerald Jackson said he,
wants to lose some weight,
stop smoking, cut back on his
drinking and get a new job.
"I doubt I will achieve
more than one of those
things, but I will really try this
year," the 33-year-old said. "I


have the same things on my
list to do each year. I lost two
pounds last year and I smoke
.a half-a-pack less and don't
go out drinking as often. So
that is pretty good."
Babysteps
According to Web MD
.com, the general theme for
resolutions is for people to
improve their health...
While this is an excellent
choice, the Web site recom-
merids people take baby
steps to improve health, fam-
ily and home in the NewYear.
"Making minor changes in
your lifestyle is doable for
most people," said Cindy
Moore, director of nutrition
therapy at The Cleveland
Clinic and a spokeswoman
for the American Dietetic
Association.
Regular checkups, exer-
cise, relaxation, healthy eat-
ing they all factor into good
body maintenance. Check-
ups are especially important.
as people age.
At the federal government
Web site firstgov.gov, there are
links to government sites
which can help people lose
weight, pay off debt, save
money, get a better job, get fit,
eat right, get a better educa-
tion, drink less alcohol, quit
smoking, reduce stress, take a
trip and even to volunteer to
help others.
The Internet has a plethora
of resolution tips for people in
all aspects of life, including
tips forbbusiness owners, chil-

TIPS FOR SUCCESS
Here are some tips from Selfhelp Magazine on achieving your results:
Put some thought into your resolution.
Make it realistic .
Set a firm resolution,
Set a timetable,
Make a plan;
Find resources.
Remind yourself every day.
Don't give up.
Find a resolution partner.
Reward yourself.

dren, environmentalists, gov-
ernment employees and
many more.
Brad Butler, 55, said he is
resolving not to change any-
thing in his life.
"I have had it with resolu-
tons," he said. "I am always
trying to improve myself.
What is so special about do-
ing it on NewYear's Eve when
most people forget within a
few days anyway?"
The basics
It is believed that the
Babylonians were the first to
make New Year's resolutions,
and people all over the world


have been breaking them
ever since, according to
Wikipedia.com. The early
Christians believed the first
day of the new year should be
spent reflecting on past mis-
Stakes and resolving to
improve one's self in the new
year.
Hannah Longley, 68, said
she plans to use her retire-
ment years to do something
she has always wanted to do:
volunteer and help people.
"We moved here a few
months ago for good and I
have been checking out dif-
ferent organizations which I
want to try out," Longley said.


"I am nervous about it, but. I
think it will be rewarding. It is
probably the first time I will
have a resolution which I will
keep and make a difference to
others."
While success is fleeting,
making resolutions can' be
fun for some people.
"My resolution is to not
make my mommy mad at
me," said Timmy Pratt, 7, of
Goshen, Ind., visiting his
grandparents here. "I hope I
dan make it until I get home. I
have more Christmas pre-
sents waiting for me there."
Such simplicity may not be
practical for most people, but

Several council members
have weighed in on the issue
in e-mail responses to
Cheves. The topic could be
brought up at the Jan. 10
council meeting.
'As far as I'm concerned,
the trees are more important


than the house! Let's get
smart and save them both,"
wrote council member John
Simmonds.
Historical Commission
chair Janis Fawn will lead a
public workshop at 5:30 p.m.
Feb. 2 in city hall to discuss
restoration of the Lord house.
The landscaper will be there,


according to Fawn, and
options for the native Florida
pine trees could be discussed.
A final cost for restoration
will not be known until a
preservation architect evalu-
ates the home.
Some have speculated
renovation could top $1 mil-
lion.


If enough donations can
be collected, Fawn hopes to
have the home fully restored
to its 1896 form within four
years.
The city paid more than
$100,000 to move the house
in July, but council said it will
not approve spending any
additional taxpayer money.

Improve VHAs adminis-

Goal No. 1 has been ac-
complished, by getting VHA

Goal No. 2 has been "more

The land for this ambitious

leave.
"Since then I was con-
vinced that the VHA opera-
tions could not achieve a suf-
ficient critical mass now, or in
the medium terrh, to meet my


professional goals as an agent
of change nor my projections
of future compensation,"
Lopez wrote in his resigna-
tion letter.
Operations Manager Deb-
orah Bevan was recommend-
ed by Lopez to be his replace-
ment, but Appell said it's too
soon to discuss a replace-
ment.
Appell said his executive
director has never com-
plained about his annual
salary of $55,000.
However, Appell knows
there are many troubled
housing authorities in the
country looking for someone
with both operational and
financial qualifications. Lo-
pez not only handled day-to-
day operations, but he used
his certified public accoun-
tant credentials to balance
VHA's financial records.

LANDSCAPING & GARDENING
What to do this time of year to get lots of colors into your landscape.
Recently I used a croton background with shrimp plants and Flax Lilies
and coleus of all sorts.The color is just amazing Those of you that enjoy
all the colors, you would be amazed at how this brightens up that dull
spot in the front yard winter or summer.
Duke Garden Center is still open and proud to serve you. We hope
you will continue to come in so that we might help figure out what to
do with your yard. If you haven't fertilized your citrus, now is the time
to do it before it begins to get to late.They start to bloom in
February and March.
If you haven't fertilized your yard with Weed and Feed from
Fertilome come by and get that fertilizer to help you get
S your weeds under control.l If your not sure that kind of WINNER

can review the project.
A deadline of Jan. 6 has
been set for recommenda-
tions for a new name for the
complex.
"As regards the name of the
new development, I suspect
that there will be little enthu-
siasm for keeping the current
name so, I am requesting that
you submit your choice of
name by Jan. 6, 2006," Lopez
wrote in an e-mail. "The
development team -
Piceme, Kristen and VHA -
wants to send in the applica-
tion (for Sarasota County
assistance) by Jan. 13, 2006.
By copy of this e-mail, I am
requesting that Mr. Carter
Canada president of the
Residents Council poll his
members to get their choices
by the same Jan. 6, date."
Kristen Packard of Packard
Consulting Inc. is leading the
effort to win tax credits to
fund what's estimated to be at
least a $16 million project. A
story in the Dec. 30 edition of
the Venice Gondolier Sun
incorrectly said the consul-
tant was Packard's former
employer, Trident Consulting.
Appell believes that Lopez'


leaving will not derail redevel-
opment efforts at Grove
Terrace. The project could be
finished by March 2009.
"Even though Peter may
not be here, we have a very
strong consultant and con-
struction company to get' us
through that. ... I will give
(Lopez) a letter of recommen-
dation wherever he goes,"
Appell said.
Some outside of VHA are
not as optimistic about Grove
Terrace's chances for redevel-
opment without Lopez.
City Manager Marty Black
was unaware of the pending
resignation until contacted
for comment, and immedi-
ately expressed concern.
Lopez has been involved in
every aspect of the redevelop-
ment project, and losing him
before the project's comple-
tion could only hinder it,
Black said.
"They're gearing up for a
very significant undertaking,"
Black said. "From my per-
spective, it would be unfortu-
nate to have new:leadership
come in during this. ...
Redevelopment of the site is a
very difficult proposition."

Lack of affordable homes for working families is a serious issue that
affects the entire Sarasota County community, and solutions will require
community-wide support. The Workforce Housing Coalition -- a private
organization made up of employers, business associations and
community organizations -- is focusing on workers who, defined by
income, are priced out of the market yet do not meet the low-income
guidelines of other assistance programs. The coalition advocates for
workforce housing by researching and sharing information, facilitating,
communication, and advocating actions and policies by employers and
governments. The Venice Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to be a
member of the coalition and will continue working with our partners to
help our employers and their employees.

Region to rally for state affordable housing funds

The Workforce Housing Coalition is getting behind a regional push to
secure state affordable housing funds that are being siphoned off for
other purposes by the Legislature. The documentary stamp tax
homebuyers pay was supposed to create affordable housing, but since
July 2003, the Legislature has diverted more than $350 million from the
fund for unrelated uses.

If next year's trust fund revenues were fully dedicated to affordable
housing, Sarasota County would receive an additional $5.6 million,
tripling the amount we now receive. This would help 187 families
purchase their first home; or 225 families rehabilitate their homes; or
500 families find affordable rental housing; and leverage more than. $15
million in private funds.

The Venice Area Chamber, along with other locals chambers, is placing
the issue on its legislative agenda and will make this a key talking point
during our annual legislative trip to Tallhassee in March for the
2006 session.

reputation in our community.
The Business of the Month Award winner was selected from a letter submitted by a
satisfied Chamber member that diligently researched the market before a final decision
was rendered.
'We had to replace our home air conditioning system. I sought out numerous estimates
before making my decision. It became a rather eye opening experience due to the
discrepancies of one bid to another. Several companies disagreed about the need
for new duct work and pricing was all over the ballpark."
Honest Air Conditioning of Venice was selected because of their straight forward
approach to our individual needs. We were convinced that Honest Air was out for our
best interest, not around to sell us the job. They quote every job as if the work was
being done in their own homes. We were shown that new duct work was a necessity
and presented a very fair price on air handling equipment plus labor.
In closing, the Honest Air Conditioning did a great job of installation and our new
system is marvelous. Their official name says it all Honest Air Conditioning of
Venice.
Honest Air Conditioning of Venice, Inc. is located at 970 Royal Road in Venice.

OUR VIEW





Trend in speed limits is up, not down


his is the third editorial in a series on
Ssettingspeed limits.
Florida lawmakers may be in a diffi-
cult spot if lawyers begin challenging speed
limits for their clients who get speeding tick-
ets. Attorneys have been winning in other
states.
Federal law requires each state to conduct
and follow a traffic study before posting
speed limits. It must be done every five years.
Apparently Florida has not done that.
Many engineers argue it is not speed, but.
rather faulty highway design, poor driving
habits, sleep deficit and medical problems
that lead to fatal crashes.
To see if the state is vulnerable to attacks in
court, the Sun papers asked the Florida
Department of Transportation for copies of
the 1-75 traffic studies. The studies now
many years old apparently were made


after the Legislature set state speed limits
based on someone's hunch, not the required
engineering studies. The studies show our
interstate speed limits are actually too low.
Federal regulations were included in the
Florida statute. That document states:
"When a speed limit is to be posted, it should
be be within 10 km/h or 5 mph of the 85th
percentile speed of free-flowing traffic."
That means traffic engineers must check
current speeds on the highways. If they find
most drivers travel at 73 miles per hour, then
the speed limit should be rounded up to 75
mph.
This approach is also required for U.S. 41,
as well as all other roads and streets in
Florida.
Once speeds are tallied (and it can't be
done at rush hour, because traffic would not
be "free flowing," as the regulation requires)


the engineers must create a new speed limit
based on the speeds of 85 percent of the
motorists. The top 15 percent (the speeds of
15 of 100 who drive as if they were on a
NASCAR oval) are thrown out.
For example, if the 70-mph speed limit
signs were removed, and 85 percent of the
drivers then began to travel at 82 mph, the
speed limit should be rounded up to 85.
The theory is that 85 percent of all
motorists will intuitively drive at speeds that
are safe for the highway, while 15 percent will
not.
Neither the Florida Legislature nor the
Florida Department of Transportation can
post a sign that reflects a hunch or arbitrary
opinion.
Officials in San Antonio, Texas, seem to
understand. They recently told the Texas
Department of Transportation that most


motorists are going faster than the speed
limit on several San Antonio highways The
city felt increasing the speed limit would
make the roads safer. Traffic experts ex-
plained that mixing slow moving motorists
with drivers going faster is a deadly combina-
tion.
Texas engineers agreed and new signs
with the speed 10 miles per hour higher are
being installed on 1-10, 1-35 and 1-37.
Interstate speed limits have been in-
creased in the past year in Iowa and Indiana,
and higher speeds are being studied in New
York, New Jersey andVirginia.
Texas' top speed is now 80, while other
states have posted speeds lower than those
in Florida.
Florida lawmakers need to decide
whether citizen safety or increasing the in-
come of lawyers is more important.


A 'to do' listfor 2006


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


It's the time of year when
many of us make a list of res-
olutions, or perhaps a "to do"
list. Here are a couple on my
list.
I plant watch to see if city
council, the planning com-
mission and staff will negoti-
ate more extensive benefits
for citizens during upcoming
annexation and rezoning
actions. To date, such benefits
seem minimal to me. I will
use the Venetian Golf & River
Club as an example below.
Scott Heinig, planning
manager for the county, has
written the county commis-
sioners and the county legal
staff questioning two Venice
annexation petitions, 051AN
and 052AN, filed by S&J prop-
erties of Southwest Florida
LLC. Heinig feels the annexa-
tions improperly isolate
property in the county. He
also pointed out that the
nearest water and sewer to
the property is operated by
the county.
Heinig was greeted with
whatI think could be called a
lack of "Southern hospitality"
when he appeared before the
planning commission Dec. 6
to raise this issue.
Commissioners pointed
out that his request for con-
sultation by the city was iron-
ic,. given that the county had
approved thousands of hous-
ing units surrounding Venice
without such consultation.
Surprising to me, City Man-
ager Marty Black, who is usu-
ally pretty cool, also weighed
in with an expression of
strong disapproval.
Black later told me that he
felt Heinig had not operated
in a proper fashion in appear-
ing without notifying the city
or even introducing himself
to his counterpart, Tom
Slaughter.
Heinig feels the current
proposals are tainted because
Venice "illegally" annexed Vil-
la Lago, a point that has been
made before by the Sorrento
Shores Homeowners Associ-
ation. Their point is that the
property was not contiguous
with the city. However, the
deed is done and the annexa-
tion and zoning are now part
of the city code.
Black says that the annexa-
tion was legal because the city
was allowed to cross a county
run-off pond on Pinebrook
Road as part of an agreement
with the county dealing with
the right of way. Further, he


says the county wrote the city
at the time that it had no
problem with the annexation.
Heinig's memo requested
the country review its criteria
and processes when munici-
palities like Venice or North
Port annex properties.
Whether the county has any
legal role is to be determined.
What is of primary interest
to me is what conditions
Venice determines are neces-
sary when it approves annex-
ations, zoning and communi-
ty development districts.
Many rezonings have
resulted in greater density
than would have been possi-
ble in the county. City council
has favored these moves. It
also has not negotiated many
benefits for the city's resi-
dents during the approval
process.
I wrote on Dec. 7, after dis-
cussions with the city, that the
city had negotiated certain
benefits when the Venetian
Golf & River Club then
known as Henry Ranch -was
annexed and granted status
as a Community
Development District- that
is, an area where infrastruc-
ture would be paid bythe new
residents' taxes rather than by
Venice at large.
Among those benefits was
10 acres for a park and citizen
access to an 80-acre conser-
vation easement. A letter to
the editor of the IGondolier
Sun from the VGRC stated
that citizens could enter the
development after identifying
themselves at a security gate,
and could use the roads,
which were paid for by the
CDD, but not have access to
the conservation easement
which was not part of the
CDD package.
The question is: Given
these large, new develop-
ments pending zoning ap-
proval along Laurel and
Knights Trail roads, will coun-
cil negotiate more favorable
terms for citizen use, and
convert these dense housing
projects into positive assets
for the community at large?
Can we expect some creativi-
ty in dealing with this growth?
Apartment district density
Developer Kevin Ward has
asked to rezone 1.3 acres
along Park Boulevard, Men-
endez Street and Palmetto
Court from moderate density
-13 units per acre to max-
imum density 18 units per
acre.
Two months ago Ward re-
ceived approval for a plan
that will replace 14 rental
units, (affordable for city
workers and residents), with
nine units to sell for more
than $1 million each.
There are two problems
here.
The larger problem has
been pointed out repeatedly
by Don O'Connell at city

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Pine trees no threat to Lord house


Editor:
I became concerned a month ago when I noticed red tape
around the large, long-leaf pine trees on the lot where the Lord
house is now located.
Public Works Director Larry Heath advised the trees were to
be removed and referred me to Director of Historical Resources
Dorothy Korwek, who explained she feared the trees could
'damage the house.
I e-mailed council members. Three of them agreed the trees
should not be destroyed.
I then met with Janis Fawn, chair of the historical commis-
sion, which is in charge of the restoration. My initial impres-
sion was her committee wanted to remove the pines to make
room for a 10-foot wide porch, and to create the appearance of
a citrus grove around the house.
Ms. Fawn assured me only two or three citrus trees would be
planted and would not necessitate removal of the pines.
Only one of the seven trees is within 10 feet of the house. The
nearest of the other six is about 20 feet, so restoration obvious-
ly does not required their removal.
If Venice is hit by a Category 4 or 5 hurricane, some pines
may go down, but the risk of tree damage to the Lord house will
be among the least of our problems. The city can cover such a
risk with insurance. There is no reasonable basis for Ms.
Korwek's strong feelings.
I urge city council to remove the red ribbons and protect
those trees.

Numbers tell
Vietnam story

Editor:
I am a veteran of the
Vietnam War. Regarding "our
poor, drafted young men,"
fact: only 38 percent of those
drafted were sent to Vietnam.
Volunteers accounted for 62
percent of our forces.
Regarding their "lack of
any other means to advance
beyond low-paying jobs,"
fact: The armed forces we
sent to Vietnam were the
most educated military we
ever sent to war. More than 68
percent had high school or
higher education.
Fact: We were 9.2 percent
of our generation. Fact: 3.2
million of us served in the


Southeast Asia theater from
1959 to 1977. Fact: 2.6 million
of us served within the bor-
ders of South Vietnam. Fact:
66 percent of us served multi-
ple tours. Fact: 68 percent
stated that they would serve
again if called.
Fact: Of the 57,488 valiant,
men and women who made
the ultimate sacrifice, the
average age was 22 years and
8 months.
Oh yes sir, we remember
you from the 60s. First you
called it peaceful protest.
Then it became anti-war pro-
test. Then you began to bum
and desecrate our nation's
flag. Then you began to take it
out on us, the lucky ones who
got to come back. You cheer-
ed the John Kerrys who called


us murderers and child
killers.
I don't expect you. to
understand this, but I guaran-
tee you, no one hates war
more than a veteran of the
United States armed forces.
No one understands and sup-
ports freedom of speech
more than a veteran of the
armed forces.
We will defend to the death
your right to express your
views, but understand, free-
dom of speech is a two-edged
sword. Just as I support your
right, I will exercise my right
to speak out against you
when you start to spew ven-
omous untruths.

Celebration was
important to all faiths

Editor:
I'd like to extend my sin-
cerest thanks to the city of
Venice for allowing us the
opportunity to share with the
community a truly ecumeni-
cal event, and a first forVenice
the celebration of Han-
nukah with the Living Men-
orah.
Hannukah is a festival for
all, celebrating a victory for
religious freedom over state-
mandated observance and
thought. With this victory in
143 B.C, the rise of the yet-to-
be born religions of Chris-
tianity and Islam was en-
sured.
Our celebration at the Ga-
zebo included people of all
faiths, adults and children, in
a single act of fellowship amid
the decorations of another
joyous festival, Christmas.
We were overwhelmed at
the turnout our first night,


when more than 200 joined in

this celebration of religious
freedom. Overall, we had
close to 500 in total atten-
dance and we collected more
than 400 pounds of food for
the food bank.
We want to thank all those
who participated with our
Jewish community in making
this Living Menorah a light to
illumine our path into tomor-
row.

Venice
He's right There
are no handouts

Editor:
I have one word for Joshua
Doerrfeld: Bravo!
He is absolutely correct in
saying that life is hard, and
there are no handouts not
from the government, the
president or from others.
People don't respect what
is given to them.
Thank you, Mr. Doerrfeld,
for that wonderfully written,
honest, intelligent letter.

No seniors in Police Beat


Causing trouble? I have just finished reading the Gondolier
Sun, Dec. 21, edition. Under the heading of Police Beat,
Sarasota County Sheriff's Office arrests, I noticed there are 13
arrests and 12 of them are from ages 18-49, and one arrest over
49. I wonder what this really tells you about all of these old folks
who cause all the trouble in the Venice area.


What a joke. I'm calling
about the picture on the front
of the crashed cop car that's
still under investigation. What
a joke. It looks like he rear-
ended somebody to me. If
that was the other car with no
police lights on top, they
would have got a ticket. I'd
like to see this guy get a ticket.
He was probably on his cell
phone, just like other people.
And why is he writing out his
own report? Another cop
should do it in case this lady
goes to sue or something. But,
whatever.
Quick response. Today is
Dec. 21. I have just volun-
teered at the Salvation Army
to give out toys for children. A
lady collapsed with heart fail-


ure and we called 9-1-1. That
was about 10 minutes until
11, and Unit 52 was on the
scene within three minutes. I
would like to let them have it
in a positive way because that
is really and truly a super per-
formance. That was the fire
engine and the ambulance
number 52. Thank you, Merry
Christmas, and please let
them have it.
Honestly now. I wish
someone would give an hon-
est opinion on what's hap-
pening with the Pinebrook
Road extension. Seems to me
like a lot of the work has been
done but there's long delays
and people don't know why. It
would be a very good road to
use between the Venice area


and up to Laurel and so forth.
Anyway, I'd like to see some-
one investigate and put
something in the paper to the
honest reason.

People nod their heads when

have not seen a policy or plan
put forward by the city to

Is it unrealistic to think

,that Gulf Coast Community

What is the rationale for

Virtually every similar request
has been approved. Why is it
in the citizen's interest? We
can understand why it is in
Mr. Ward's interest.
Stay tuned for the "Watch

of Mike Miller and the Com-

Having drafted a CMU

drawn the rezoning request.

Slow response times will cost lives


BYTERRENCE KEHOE
GUEST COLUMNIST


The structure fire in Os-
prey on Sunday, Dec. 4, and
the tragic loss of the Gluecks'
home comes as no surprise to
me.
If anything good can come
out of this tragedy, hopefully
it will be a wake-up call to
County Administrator Jim
Ley, Deputy County Adminis-
trator David Bullock and Ex-
ecutive Director of Emerg-
ency Services David Harra-
wood.
Although they would love
to point blame for this
tragedy to the fire chief and
his firefighters, the blame
goes to them for not listening
to the chief and his repeated
requests for additional fire-
fighters and additional fire
stations.
Long response times to
emergencies in Sarasota
County are not uncommon,
occurring on a daily basis.
They must be addressed
before another tragedy oc-
curs and, worse yet, lives are
lost.
On Nov. 30 the closest
available ambulance to a
medical emergency in the
area east of 1-75 off Clark
Road was at the downtown
4th Street station; it took that

You read here Nov. 23 that it
might happen.

ambulance 22 minutes to
arrive. A fire truck cleared
from another emergency and
arrived in eight minutes.
Both are unacceptable re-
sponse times.
Luckily, this emergency
was not serious. Had this
been a heart attack patient or
a child drowning, the result
would have been much worse
than a house burning down.
Sarasota County has some
of the finest and best-trained
firefighters and paramedics a
community could ask for, but
if they can't arrive in an
acceptable amount of time or
in sufficierit numbers to han-
dle the emergency, property
will be destroyed and lives
will be lost.
There is no more dedicat-
ed or knowledgeable fire chief
than Brian Gorski and he has
the full support and confi-
dence of his 400-plus fire-
fighters. Hopefully he won't
be run off by the county
administration like the other
20-30 top managers in the
county over the last few years.
Too much knowledge and ex-
perience have already been
lost.
Studies, statistics and data
indicate the Sarasota County
Fire Department is in need of
additional fire stations and
personnel on its fire trucks in


order to adequately protect
the citizens of this county.
A good start to correcting
these deficiencies in service
would be to:
1. Immediately hire addi-
tional firefighters to staff an
ambulance and fire truck in
the Palmer Ranch communi-
ty in a temporary location
until a permanent station can
be built.
2. Immediately hire addi-
tional firefighters to increase
the minimum staffing of per-
sonnel on five fire trucks per
year from two to three people
and equip these fire trucks to
provide advanced medical
life support.
3. Allow the fire chief to
implement his plan for addi-
tional stations and personnel.
The citizens of Sarasota
County have been paying in
excess of $5 million a year in
fire/EMS tax assessments the
county administrator has not
allowed the fire chief to use in
his budget. These funds
would more than pay for the
enhancements that are need-
ed now and in the future.

Crowd urged:




Speak up for peace


BY STEPHEN BAUMANN
ENGLEWOOD EDITOR


On the final, bright morn-
ing of 2005, a few hundred
people gathered at Epiphany
Cathedral and heard the mes-
sage: Speak truth to power.
And the truth, they were
told, was that the instruments
of war specifically torture
- were dehumanizing, and
that individuals especially
people of religious faith -
should embrace humanity
worldwide and work for
peaceful solutions to divisive
issues.
The occasion was the 16th
Annual World Day of Peace. It
was a function that began in
1990 in Englewood under the
leadership of Peter and Anna-
belle Duisberg of Englewood.
At that time, there were
nine organizations involved;
today, more than 20 groups
compose the Southwest Flor-
ida Coalition of Peace and
Justice, which sponsored the
event. .
The program was moved
to the Catholic cathedral in
downtown Venice last year to
accommodate a larger crowd
and a broader area of interest,
according to organizers. ,
Peter Duisberg was ap-
plauded by the crowd Sat-
urday on his 86th birthday
and acknowledged as "the
father of this organization
and this event" by the current
chair of the coalition, August
Schmitz.
Schmitz said he was mov-
ed to join the organization
years ago by his association
with the Duisbergs, whom he
called "cheerleaders of
peace."

Solidarity
The keynote address: was
given by the Rev. fred'i9Modris,
a Methodist minister from
Central Florida who until
recently served on the World
Council of Churches.
Morris' talk a sermon
without prayer was a call
for Americans to denounce
the use of torture and to
speak up for peace.
"Religious leaders have the
obligation to speak the truth
to power," he said.
The point of the Christian


faith, Morris said, was that,
"God has called all of us to live
together, to serve together
and to care for the people
who need care."
This, he called the "solidar-
ity" of people.
Morris said that that rule
comes in conflict with the
American ethic of "rugged
individualism," embodied in
the cinematic image of John
Wayne, "a willingness to use
force if necessary."
"That's the American way,
unfortunately," he said.
But the Christian faith urg-
es not simply an individual
relationship with God, but "a
responsibility to family and
people around the world."
He saw some justification
for the war in Afghanistan
after the attacks of Sept. 11,
2001, because the United
States was hunting for Osama
bin Laden in the country that
shielded him.
However, he added, "The
war in Iraq was based on false
premises."
And he said the govern-
ment is now scaring Amer-
icans into accepting policies
that trampled rights.
This, he said, is nothing
new, but a continuation of
political techniques used by
all administrations over the
past 50 years.
"But right now, we're giving
up so many of our rights,
we're about to lose the whole
show."

No justification
Morris told the crowd he
had been jailed and tortured
by the Brazilian government
when he was a Methodist
missionary in that country in
1974.
While the U.S. government
did not ,allow the military to
" engage 'in'torture theni, he
said, "What's happened now
is that for the first time in our
history the president and vice
president are justifying the
use of torture."
"This is so outrageous that
we can't stand for it. There's
no justification for torture,"
Morris said.
Torture dehumanizes the
person tortured, the torturer

Please see PEACE, 11A

Motorist Awareness System to be implemented


STAFF REPORT

The Florida Department of
Transportation recently intro-
duced the Motorist Awareness
System to its contractors and
the traveling public in.an effort
to increase work zone safety
and motorist convenience.
"The Motorist Awareness'
System was designed to make
traveling through work zones
safer," said Brian Blanchard,
director of the FDOT State
Office of Construction. "It's


the coordination of flashing
regulatory signs, radar speed
display units and increased
'law enforcement presence to
guide the motorists through
the work zone."
The MAS will be used on
highway construction sites
when the following condi-
tions exist:
The road construction is
being done on a multilane
highway (four or more lanes)
The posted speed limit is
55 mph or greater


The road construction
requires a lane closure
Construction workers are
present
The goal of the system is to
make motorists aware of the
reduced speed in work zones.
In Florida, 130 people were
killed in 116 crashes in work
zones during 2004. Nearly
half of the fatalities were
speed related.
"When workers are not
present and construction is
complete for the day, mo-


tourists will be able to return to
the normal posted speed for
the roadway," Blanchard said.
"The key to the effectiveness
of this system is to discontin-
ue blanket speed reductions
in the work zone. The system
will be activated when lane
closures are present and will
be deactivated when lane clo-
sures are taken down."

PEACE from Page I0A


and all of society, he said; it is
ineffective and immoral.
"We have got to say to our
government, there's a price
we will not pay for our securi-
ty, and that is torture."
He added, "We have been
panicked into silence on this.
Fear is not a legitimate way to
govern."
The response, he said,
should be "to speak the truth
to power."
Morris told the crowd,
"We've got to demand that
our government do the right
thing because of who we are."
He concluded, "Peace
comes from solidarity, and it's
one of the main vocations we
ha'e [toy,"'-' to }vbrk'for,
peace."'


His admonition was sec-
onded by Sister Sallie Lat-
kovich, a Catholic nun from
Fort Myers.
"Probably the best thing
we can do is to refuse to be
governed by fear," she said.
Latkovich urged listeners
to become involved in com-
munities, where, "We can cor-
porately be people for peace,
in solidarity with peace."
She added, "We can con-
tinue to speak the truth to
power, but speak in love;
speak contrary to violence
and contrary to war."

Heaven needed another coach


Hundreds pay their respects to beloved Special
Olympics coordinator ahd coach, Rob Rankin.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Special Olympics of Sara-
sota County lost a very spe-
cial person last Wednesday
evening.
The news came as a shock
to all Rob Rankin, the chap-
ter's beloved coordinator the
past five years, was killed in an
automobile accident.
He was just 45 years old.
Rankin's funeral was held
Tuesday and he was buried at
Sarasota Memorial Park. A
reception attended by hun-
dreds followed at the Gene
Whipp Sports Center inVenice.
The outpouring of love
was genuine. Folks wept,
laughed, while sharing their
favorite "Rob stories."
Rankin, who lived in Noko-
mis with loving wife Kama-
kaokalini and stepson Mark
Alison, was as hands on as one
could get and burned with a
seemingly endless supply of


energy for the Special Athletes
from this county, and for that
matter, the entire state.
Special Olympics provides
athletic outlets for people
with mental and physical dis-
abilities.
With Rankin directing
traffic and helping coach,
Sarasota County was regard-
ed as one of the top Special
Olympics organizations in
the state.
Of the 16,000 Special
Athletes in Florida, Sarasota
has more than 500.
"Sarasota is one of the top
three with Palm Beach and
Miami, and for a small county,
Sarasota was the leader," said
Monty Castevens, the presi-
dent and CEO of Special
Olympics Florida. "It is a
model program."
Former Sarasota Special
Olympics director H a 1
Hedley said folks always look
up to to Sarasota.
"We would win a lot of the


awards every year," he said.
"They would say you guys
must be doing something
right."
Rankin was a big part of it.
"He was always in the mid-
dle of everything," said
Castevens, who came down
from the Orlando area for the
funeral. "I'd see him at every
State Games. He was very
passionate about the sports.
He wanted them to always be
looked upon as equals."
"He was an advocate for
the kids," added Hedley.
"He was our fearless lead-
er," said Special Athlete gym-
nastics coach Christy Mezick.
"It's a huge loss. I can't fathom
how many lives he's touched:"
Hedley said that Rankin
came to the area from Hawaii
in 1989. He was a volunteer
basketball and softball coach
with Special Olympics for 10
years before taking over the
county coordinator job in
2001.
Special Athlete Eugene
Valeska perhaps said it best -
"Heaven needed ,another
coach." .

Lyons the heart of Indian team


Senior swingman jack-of-all-trades
for VHS boys hoops.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

For Venice High boys bas-
ketball to be successful in
Steve Cavallaro's first season
as head coach, the three
senior co-captains have to
step up their games and carry
the load.
Kalen Lyons has done his
part of the bargain, as he has
improved all facets of his
game from his junior year. His
court talents cover many
aspects of the game.
.Lyons, who is 6-feet, 2-


inches tall, is a swingman,
meaning he plays some guard
and some forward. He is
required to handle the ball
and help the guards break
full-court pressure. While
"Baby Bird" can pop for three-
pointers, he must also play
down low and be a slasher to
the hoop.
Through 14 games (Venice
is 6-8 overall), Lyons is the
team's leading scorer, popping
for 12 points a game. He is
shooting an excellent 48 per-
cent from the field. Lyons' free
throw accuracy has also been


a boon to the team, as he is
connecting 82 percent of his
attempts.
At the other end of the
floor, Lyons is required to
man up tough and provide
some board strength.
'A lot of times, he gets the
other team's top player," Ca-
vallaro said.
"My goal is not to get
points," he said. "I have to
play defense and be smart on
the court."
Lyons said the difference
between playing for old coach
Tom McLaughlin and new
"Maine man" Cavallaro is not
drastic.
"They're a lot alike," Lyons
said. "Both play a lot of man.
Coach Cav's decisions on
whose in the lineup is differ-
ent. Coach Cav plays an all-
motion offense. There's no set
plays. You look for the best

VENICE HIGH

SCHOOL'S Athlete of the Week
SComing off football, it took a while for Ilya
Vasilevskiy to get his basketball legs. Now in form,
he has been a big help to the Indian hoopsters
from his center position. He gives Venice a mhch-
needed inside presence and also been one of the
top scorers. He led the team with 12 points in last
Thursday's CES Classic semifinals against
Manatee.

SILL brings its lifelong learning



lecture series back to Venice

season.


BY DALE POVENMIRE
GUEST WRITER

Venice has something
Sarasota lacks this time of
vear available seats at SILL
lectures.
This is one of the best kept
open secrets in the Sarasota-
\enice metropolitan area.
The Sarasota Institute of
Lifelong Learning (SILLI
offers a weekly lecture series
on international affairs. A
select list of speakers, each
chosen for expertise in a spe-
cific area, present an hour's
talk followed by 15 minutes of
audience questions.
The series is so popular
that every Thursday morning.


from January through March,
every one of the 525 seats at
The Players Theatre in Sara-
sota is sold out. Actually, the
entire series is regularly sold

November when tickets first

requires all this space?
Quality and value.
Sarasota audiences have
learned during the past 34
years that the list of ambas-
sadors, scholars, journalists
and authors selected by SILLs
volunteer board consistently
offers excellent programs for
a minimal price.
What few people have
known tunil recently is that
the same speakers who regu-
larly attract those overflow
audiences, to Sarasota's Play-
ers Theatre come to Venice
the very next day to present
their illuminating talks.
, The only difference is that
there are generally some
available seats in Venice,
where the lectures are held at
the newly renovated Venice
Community Center.
Venice SILL volunteers
have brought the identical
SILL programs to the com-
munity center for the past
four years. In Venice, the lec-
tures are held Fridays at 10:30
a.m. The community center is
at 326 S. Nokomis Ave., be-
tween the Venice Public
Library and the Venice Art
Center. Park on either side of
the building. Last year, while
the center was being renovat-
ed, SILL lectures were held at
the Church of the Nazarene.
Now back at the commu-
nity center, the program is
expected to draw some 300
people to the center each
Friday, but there is space
available for several hundred
additional people in the reno-
vated building, simply by
opening partitions that nor-
mally divided the center's
main room into four.
Interestingly, about 10 per-
cent of the Venice audience is
normally made up of people
from Sarasota who come to
hear the speaker for a second
time. As each speaker has a
wide range of knowledge on
his area of expertise, the
speakers will treat two differ-


ent but related subjects on
Thursday in Sarasota and on
Friday in Venice.
The Friday series in Venice
begins Jan. 6 with the appear-
ance of a perennial SILL
favorite, Dr. Jerry Pubantz,
who' will speak on "The
Emerging New World Alli-
ances."
The SILL bonus in Venice
For Venice area residents
there is an extra SILL bonus.
On Wednesday at 2:30 p.m.
there is another series of lec-
tures on both national and
international issues.
The first lecture in this
Wednesday series will be
Zheng Zeguang, a deputy


director of the Chinese Em-
bassy in Washington, D.C. He,
will speak on "China U.S:
Relations" this\aftemoon, Jan.
4, at 2:30 p.m. TheWednesday
series also is at the Venice
Community Center, 326 S.
Nokomis Ave.
Tickets for the lectures are
$5 per person per lecture.
Season tickets to all 24 SILL
lectures in Venice, 12 on
Wednesday afternoons and
12 on Friday mornings, are
$60 per person, which
amounts to a 50-percent dis-
count.
There are two exceptions
to the Venice Friday schedule.

Washington's spirit should still animate Americans all


BYJAMES M. ABRAHAM
BOOK COLUMNIST

Those of us who do car-
pentry or sewing know what
happens if we are off by a tiny
bit at the beginning of a pro-
ject. The fault grows expo-
nentially and geometrically,
changing a slip of an eighth of
an inch into a major mess as
we bring our creation to
fruition.
Of course, when that hap-
pens it's often possible to
unravel a stitch or pull out
some nails, and then begin
the task again.
Oh, would that it were as
easy to mend a nation or a
life; to unravel the fabric of
the years, measure twice and
begin anew. We can't go back,
but at least we can break the
cycles of failure by better
measuring our words,
thoughts and deeds as we
move toward our future.
That's a very long way
around to a discussion of a
major work of American his-
tory, "An Imperfect God,"
($26, Farrar, Strauss and
Giroux), by Henry Wiencek.


The subtitle, "George
Washington: His Slaves and
the Creation of America,"
sums up not only the nature
of the book but the work that
lies ahead if we are to truly
inherit the promise of this
nation. The best evidence of
the need for the latter is the
number of folks who, at this
point, may roll their eyes and
coniplain about my harping
on what many consider a
dead issue.
Nevertheless, a careful
reading of the book, which
describes how the man who
deserved to be called the
father of his country wrestled
with the slavery issue, should
give all of us Americans a
clear idea of what we must do
to confront the nation's
longest-running unresolved
issue.
History often gets things
wrong, as some figures are
over-rated even as others are
overlooked. But in Wash-
ington, the deifiers and the
hagiographers did get things
right. As Wiencek reports,
Washington's greatest virtue
was his discipline, a rigorous


code'he set for himself that
led him to make a radical
decision regarding the slaves
he kept.
, There's something so
American about Washington.
In F Scott Fitzgerald's Great
American Novel, Gatsby tran-
scended his origins by follow-
ing the tenets of a little book
listing daily exercises of self-
improvement. Wiencek de-
scribes howWashington sub-
scribed to a similar self-made
journal of moral and mental
standards, and how his logi-
cal mind led him to an apoth-
eosis of conscience regarding
a basic element of American
society.
Washington, unlike his
contemporary slave owners,
made provisions not only to
free his slave upon his death,
but also to ensure that they
were educated and trained to
make their way in a free
world.
The beauty of Wiencek's
work is that in this age of clay
feet and fallen heroes, Wash-
ington's legend is burnished
even more by the study of his
change of mind regarding


slavery. Washington did what
too many people in this
country still refuse to do. He
took it upon himself, with no
coercion from others, to
question racial precepts and
arrive at a simple conclusion:
he decided to treat the slaves
as he would like to be treated.
Too many of us are quick
to voice an emphatic 21st
century yuck! when describ-
ing the moral landscape of
past ages. But people lived
then as they do now, sub-
scribing to the rules of the
popular culture of the time. In
that context, we would all do
well to spend more time con-
sidering the effectiveness of
our leaders past rather than
lamenting actions on their
part that, however common
in their day would not pass
the sniff test today. However,
when someone has the cour-
age to shuck off the peer.pres-
sure that binds one to com-
mon practice, that person
merits respect and admira-
tion.
That's why Wiencek's his-
tory of Washington works so
well. At one point, as he de-


scribes a slave raffle orga-
nized byWashington and oth-
Sers to liquidate an estate, he
waxes moralistic about the
horror of breaking up a slave
family. But Wiencek under-
stands his responsibility as a
historian and avoids the pit-
falls of comparative morality,
as shown in the fine, insight-
ful passage below:
In 1773, an overseer had
used similar terms to convey
to Washington the agony of
slave mothers kept apart
from their children. These
separations, the overseer
wrote, felt "like death to
them." By 1775 Washington
was unsettled and uneasy
enough to buy a whole family
he did not need rather than
separate them. This was the
First hint of the long transfor-
mation that culminated in
Washington's decision to
emancipate his slaves. Wash-
ington's later statement that
he would refuse to sell people
like "cattle in the market" has
been taken as a sign of his
benevolent character, a sign

loud farce. As the play opens,
Theo Maske (Dan Greene), an
officious, puritanical bureau-
crat, berates his wife, Louise
(Tarah Hart), for allowing her
underpants to fall to the
ground at a parade for the
king.
Theo frets that he and
Louise will be financially
ruined and become social
outcasts from the inevitable
scandal. But before long,
besotted men appear at
Maske's door to rent a room
- and, unnoticed by the pro-
prietor, to seduce his wife. As
scandal erupts into spectacle,
the characters behave in pre-
dictable and unpredictable
ways and a young wife
learns about her own power.
The VLT production is
being directed by Joseph Cole
Simmons. Melanie Buckalter
is stage manager. The cast
includes Greene as the hus-
band, Theo; Hart as his wife,
Louise; and Neil Kasanofsky,

myself, I'm supposed to do old friend Ryan. It was going

As I get older which I am guys to do together; that is


what I was saying to myself as
I signed the legal release form
("The undersigned further
agrees that he has not actual-
ly read this form and just
wants to get on the snowmo-
bile already and would in fact
. cheerfully sign anything
placed in front of him includ-
ing a document granting us
the right to keep both his ears
as souvenirs").
We rented our snowmo-
biles at a place called the
Smiley Creek Lodge, which is
in a place called Smiley Creek,
which pretty much consists of
the Smiley Creek Lodge. We
also rented helmets and
jumpsuits so that we would
look as much as possible like
the Invasion of the Dork
Tourists From Space. A very
nice man showed us how to
make the snowmobiles go. He
seemed extremely calm, con-
sidering that he was turning
three powerful and expensive
machines over to two adoles-
cent boys and a humor
columnist. I thought he'd give
us detailed instructions re-
garding where we should go,
but basically all he said was
that we should make an effort
to remain in Idaho.
This did not prove to be so


easy, not with Rob and Ryan
at the controls.
They are wonderful and
intelligent boys, but they have
the common sense of table
salt. It's not their fault. Their
brains have not yet developed
the Fear Lobe. If you give
them control over a motor-
ized vehicle, they are going to
go at the fastest possible
speed, which on a modem
snowmobile turns out to be
14,000 miles, per hour. They
were leaving trails of flaming
snow behind them. I tried to
exercise Adult Supervision by
yelling "Hey! Guys! Be Careful!
Hey!" but they couldn't hear
me, because sound travels
only so fast.
So off we went, into the
snow-covered wilds of Idaho,
with the two Flaming No-
Judgment Blurs roaring
ahead, followed at an increas-
ing .distance by the Rapidly
Aging Shouting Man.
We would, have been
inside the Arctic Circle by
nightfall if Ryan had riot dri-
ven into the creek. It was not
his fault. He didn't see the
creek. Some idiot had failed
to put up a freeway-style sign
with 15-foot-high letters say-
ing "CREEK," and so Ryan


naturally drove into it.
Since your modem snow-
mobile weighs as much as a
freight locomotive, we were
unable to pull Ryan's out, so
he got on the back of mine
and we all rode sheepishly
back to the Smiley Creek
Lodge.
There we learned that
another tourist party was also
having problems: A man had
gotten himself and his son
stuck in deep snow, and they
couldn't get out. The man's
wife, who had not been wild
about the snowmobiling idea
in the first place, was inform-
ing the lodge personnel that
she wanted her son back, but
as far as she was concerned,'
they could leave her husband
out there. (She was kidding.)
(Sort of.)
While this drama was un-
folding, another group of
tourists returned and an-
nounced that they, too, had
planted a snowmobile some-
where out in Idaho. None of
this bothered the nice snow-
mobile-renting man.
e-l calmly called in some
local Idaho men soft-spo-
ken, strong, competent-look-
ing men, the kind of men who
never get their snowmobiles


stuck and could probably sur-
vive for weeks in the wilder-
ness by eating pine cones.
They went out and rescued
the father and son, and then
they went and pulled out all
of the stuck snowmobiles. I
realized that this was routine
for them.
On any given winter day,
probably two-thirds of the
Idaho population is busy
pulling tourist-abandoned
snowmobiles out of creeks,
snowbanks, trees, mine
shafts, condominiums, etc.
So it all ended well, and the
boys thought snowmobiling
was -the coolest thing we
could have done short of
blowing up a building. I, on
the other hand, was looking
for a more restful mode of
snow transportation, and I'm
pleased to report thatT found
one: It requires no gasoline, it
goes at a nice safe speed, and
it doesn't get stuck. On the
other hand, it emits an amaz-
ing amount ofweewee.

arts for more than 200 years.
They made their mark in
European circuses as acro-.
bats, clowns, jugglers, aerial-
ists and animal trainers and
have garnered international
fame outside the circus world
with their legendary "sky-
walks" across vast outdoor
spaces. The Flying Wallendas,
now with the seventh genera-
tion of family members, will
recreate the troupe's undupli-
cated seven-person pyramid
when they appear as part of


a Peruvian with the unlikely
professional name of Crazy
Wilson who will tempt fate
daily under Circus Sarasota's
big top. Mastering unbeliev-
able trampoline leaps, he also
executes running somer-
saults atop a 42-foot tall
astro-wheel. A fourth genera-
tion .performer who has
toured with Ringling Bros.
and Barnum & Bailey Circus,
Crazy Wilson Dominguez
puts a world-class daredevil
spin on several traditional cir-


acrobatic experience to a new
level in their classic hand-bal-
ancing routines. As Duo

made them performers of
choice for companies such as
Cirque E'loize, .Cirque du
Soleil and Cirque E'os. They

have been seen on TVin Paris,
Tokyo, Italy, England and
their native Quebec, and ear-

SPIRIT from PageSB


that a man such as Washing-
ton would never do such a
thing. In fact, he had done it.
But then he began to face
what he had done, while all
around him the buying and
Selling went on unabated.
-Thomas Jefferson observ-
ed that Washington's mind
was "slow in operation, being
little aided by invention or
imagination, but sure in con-
clusion."
With the -raffle of children
in Williamsburg, Washington
reached a moral nadir, and
from that depth began a long


moral transfiguration that
concluded in the writing of
his will his indictment of
the laws, the country, and the
people that enacted events
that, to him, had the feeling of
death.
We do right.to attempt to
model ourselves after the
indispensable man. We'd be
doing our republic a great ser-
vice to continue the mental
and moral struggle he waged
within and without to extir-
pate slavery and its after-
effects, from sea to shining
sea.

Through Jan 29
Sandy Winters: Pretexts
and Subtext. The work of New
York artist Sandy Winters
explores imagery associated
with machinery and the nat-
ural world and utilizes a vari-
ety of materials, ranging from
conte and charcoal, canvas
and paint, aluminum and
found objects. The exhibition,
Pretexts and Subtexts, fea-
tures a site-specific installa-
tion and a number of oil
paintings on both wood and
metal. Ms. Winters received
her M.EA. from .Cornell
:University. She was a resident
Iof Miami for seventeen years
before moving to New York
;City where she has lived for
Sithe past 15 years.
SCarolina Sardi: Exquisite
Tension. Carolina Sardi's
,sculptures convey maximum
information through mini-
mum -use .of- form. For
,Carolina, the concept is as
;important as the execution
:and the notion that positive
land negative space can easily
become transposable. While
,he works in the medium of
steel, her pieces convey both
,a delicacy and an organic sen-
:sibility, which reflect her keen
interest in the simple interac-
tions that often occur in life.
:Carolina offers the viewer a
vision of the architectonic in
,er sculpture, communicat-
ing both 'the beauty of the
Horm and the exquisite ten-
sion of the arrangement.

"Henry Moore: A Life in
Sculpture" (25 min.) Henry


Moore's journey from a 19th
century English coal mining
town to the center of the 20th
century art world was driven
by talent, vision, and ambi-
tion. He fused ideas from
non-European cultures, sur-
realism and nature into a
unique sculptural language
that made its way into gal-
leries and private collections
around the world. Moore's
larger works later entered into
public spaces Lincoln
Center in New York and the
Houses of Parliament in
London. This film traces his
journey from radical outsider
to internationally renowned
artist through interviews with
critics, curators, and sculptor
and former assistant, An-
thony Caro, as well as Bruce
Nauman.. Includes footage of
the artist at work. Free.

Little gymnast follows

in mom's footsteps


STAFF REPORT

In the past it took someone
special to put a place like
sleepy North Port on the map.
Years ago, the name Jen-
nifer Brittain wore out head-
lines in the local papers and
was coffee-shop conversation
at the local doughnut shop.
The papers often printed
her picture and stories about
her many gymnastics accom-
plishments and awards.
Today that same gymnast,
who still holds records at the
collegiate level, has found
that the apple doesn't fall far
from the tree. "
Brittain married her ele-
mentary school sweetheart,
Joshua Doerrfeld, another
stand-out local athlete.
The couple has three
daughters, one of whom,
Alexis, is following in her
mother's footsteps.
"Alexis shows so much

more grace and poise (than I
did)," said her mother Jen-
nifer.
Recently, young Alexis
traveled to Tampa with her
team from Horizon Gymnas-
tics, where- her mother
trained, to compete in the
state meet for levels 3-6.
For 8-year-old Alexis, this
level three division was only
her second meet. The first
one was to qualify to go to
state meet.
At the end of the competi-
tion, Alexis had taken second
place on the floor, second on
the vault, third on beam and
third place on bars in her divi-
sion. The combination of all
her scores resulted in her win-
ning the State All-Around in
her division.
Alexis and her teammates
Brittani Bunkley, Becca
Parnell, Abby Dougherty and
Amy Brown brought home
the fourth-place state trophy.
"Though this is a great
.accomplishment for these
young ladies, had they been
placed in the right division
based on the size of their
team, they would have
brought home the first-place
all-around trophy," said
Joshua Doerrfeld. "For these
girls, a technicality only
meant one thing. They prov-
ed that even with a small
team they could compete
with the big ones."

Children living in Eastern
European orphanages often
spend their entire childhoods
there,, always hoping to be
adopted.
'A lot of them come from
homes where there is alco-
holism, or prostitution," said
Ania Nazarian, secretary of
Direct Help to Eastern Eur-
ope, Inc. "They tend to stay in
the orphanages until they're
18, and then it's hard for them
to leave, because they don't
know how to live on their
own. The homes try to take
care of the kids well, but these
are poor countries."
Ania's mother, Elizabeth,
started Direct Help to Easter
Europe Inc. 13 years ago as a
travel agent in Chicago.
SAfter Elizabeth's mother
died in Poland, she found all
the 'money she had sent to
take care of her put away in an
envelope: Instead of spending
it on herself like an inheri-
tance, she felt the need to do
something important with it.
"I'm a cancer 'survivor,
maybe God saved my life to
help children," said Elizabeth,
the organization's president.
Over the years, the DHEE
has raised tens of thousands
of dollars for children's homes
in Poland, Armenia, the Re-
public of Georgia and
Ukraine. It also assists homes
for troubled mothers and

The funds raised through

language lessons. The family


recently sent $2,250 to an
orphanage in the Ukraine for
150 pairs of winter shoes for
the children there.
"One couple from Chicago
donates $3,000 every year to
give children English lan-

Man who ruins pot party puts girlfriend's nose out ofjoint


DEAR ABBY
COLUMNIST


DEAR ABBY: I am 21 and
my girlfriend, "Jody," is 19.
The other day she was invited
to a party at which she 'told
me she intended to smoke


marijuana. She knows I dis-
approve of drugs and alcohol.
When I became upset, she
told me to "lighten up."
4 I love Jody with all my
heart and want nothing bad
to happen to her, so I wrote
an anonymous letter to her
mother explaining the situa-
tion. Jody didn't get into trou-
ble, but her brother did
because he had marijuana on
him at the time. Because I
told her mother what was
going to happen, nobody was
able to do what they intended
at the party.
Now they're all mad at me.


I have been getting hate mes-
sages on my answering
machine and via e-mail. Jody
promised to call me before
the party, but she didn't and
went anyway.
I visited her at work and
tried to talk with her, but she
isn't speaking to me. I have
apologized countless times,
saying I didn't mean for any-
one to get in trouble. I love
her more than anything, but I
don't feel any love in return. I
am very shy, so I find it hard
to talk to her. What can I do?
- HURTING IN IOWA
DEAR HURTING: You


have done enough. It doesn't
take a crystal ball to see that
your relationship with Jody is
over, at least for now. Please
forgive me for being a "down-
er," but it's time to accept the
fact that you and Jody are at
different levels of maturity
and heading down different
paths. When and if this girl
matures, she may realize the
fine qualities you have to
offer. But I have a feeling that
by the time that happens,,
you'll be long gone and in
love with someone whose
values are more similar to
your own.


DEAR ABBY: My husband
and I have been married
almost 22 years and are hap-
pily child-free. We have al-
ways lived far from our rela-
tives and see them only every
three or four years.
At a recent gathering of my
husband's siblings, his oldest
sister (now a grandmother)
was extremely aggressive in
her insistence that we hold,
kiss and interact with her 11-
day-old grandchild (her lat-
est). When We attempted to
rebuff her with humor, say-
ing, "Oh, we just don't do
babies!" she became hostile


and insulting. It made us both
very uncomfortable:
Because of this, we are now
considering skipping any
future visits because her
behavior will undoubtedly be
repeated. I don't want bad
blood in the family. However,
I refuse to be treated with dis-
respect.
Should we confront the
sister and let her know how
her behavior made us feel? -
NO BABIES; PLEASE, MARL-
BOROUGH, MASS.

Running in New Year's resolutions


J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK

EDITOR'S NOTE: This Back Of
The Pack running column original-
ly appeared Jan. 1, 2005. It took
months of struggling before finally
kicking the smoking habit in
August 2005. Look for a new BOTP
column next week.


As many of us wipe away
that weird crusty stuff that.
gathers in the corner of your
eye following a NewYear's Eve
that drifted into New Year's
Day, the reality of promised
resolutions for 2005 made
hastily the previous night
stare back from the bathroom
mirror.
Cold sweats pop up as I
think about mine it's time
to quit smoking.
"What? You smoke? But,
you do all that jogging," has
been the most frequent com-
ment the past month or so.
I've explained away the
confusion about how a jogger
can also be a smoker, inform-
ing others the key is to wait
until after a run to smoke.


Sweat tends to dribble down
your arm and ruin the ciga-
rette if you smoke and jog at
the same time.
Why now?
Defensive humor aside,
there really is no reason to
continue smoking, I'm calling
myself out and here's why I
should do it now.
Health One of those
annoying anti-smokers until
19 years old, the health
impact of my dozen years at a
pack-a-day habit could be
reversed. No matter the age
or length of smoking, positive
health benefits always result
after quitting, according to
what I've read.
Money- Let's face it, I'm
going broke in order to sup-


port an addiction.- Does this
make sense? As is becoming a
health insurance trend, my
premiums are higher because
I smoke and then there's the
$3 a pack spent every day.
Running Need I say
more?
Annual resolutions
Following through on reso-
lutions has become a big deal
for me.
Back in 2002, my goal was
to complete my second mar-
athon before turning 30 years
old after taking a decade off
from running. Mission ac-
complished at the 2002
Columbus Marathon.
In 2003, the goal was to
finally venture outside the
safety of my home state, Ohio,


and see what the world has to
offer. The initial move
brought me to Sarasota be-
fore winding. up in Venice,
and I plan on never leaving.
This year's resolution
brought me back to running,
and my desire to once again
live that outdoors lifestyle
and freedom. Running in
2004 wasn't about a mar-
athon goal; it was about free-
ing myself and jogging just to
jog.
Felt pretty good, and in the
process, I've dropped nearly
40 pounds while still eating
three or more frozen pizzas a
week.
I know smoking is bad, but
I have learned one key lesson
cigarettes are not an ex-
cuse for not exercising. If any-


thing, exercise is most impor-
tant for those daily smokers
unwilling to give up the habit.
Who knows. After a while
of clearing out your lungs and
feeling good, maybe you'll
reach that point where I'm at.
However, it's still New
Year's Eve as I write this and
I've got a half pack left.
Smoke-free living doesn't
start until midnight.
Time to head out for some
fresh air.

Back of the Pack is a week-
ly running column appear-
ing every Wednesday. Send

(Martin) can renew his rivalry
with Jimmy Murtaugh,
played by Eugene Levy, who
at least gives Martin some-
body with comic weight to
battle.
The frugal Bakers and the
wealthy Murtaughs mix it up.
Mom (the ever-game Bonnie
Hunt) tries to keep the peace.
But she and the latest Mrs.
Murtaugh (Carmen Electra,
meeeeooow) are having no
luck.
At least the kids are getting
along almost too well. The

are batting eyes at one anoth-
er. The Baker's tomboyish
prankster, Sarah, played by
the very winning Alyson
Stoner, is discovering boys, a
Murtaugh boy to be precise.
Yes, the "Dozen" are grow-
ing up. Nora (Piper Perabo)
and her new hubby are
expecting. As Tom puts it,
"Life's blazing by." He's just an
observer. Jimmy Murtaugh is
his opposite, a control freak.
''Parenting comes down to
one word, Tom. Push. You
don't push, they don't amount
to anything." His kids are
over-achievers. The Bakers
have other priorities.

Tom Baker (Steve Martin) can't wait to lead his clan in an epic
battle against a rival family in "Cheaper by the Dozen 2."


Martin recycles all his
"Parenthood"/ "Father of the
Bride" shtick, the funny
dance, the goofy efforts to be
"cool with the kids." His idea
of daddyhood seems to be
that clueless bachelor camp
counselor whose car we
would stuff with pine needles
every summer.
Teen idol Hilary Dfuff, back
as the high-maintenance
Baker girl, has moved into a
particularly awkward-looking
age. When she's old enough,
she should sue her hairdress-


er on this one. She looks like a
horse, a scary horse. With
cleavage.
But she' still wearing less
makeup than Martin.
Martin's longtime fans can
only cling to the odd moment
- a hip-hop turn in "Bringing
Down the House," or the
planned film of his funny play,
"Picasso at the LapinAgile."
But there is further news to
make us abandon all hope for
him and the joker he once
was. His "Pink Panther"
remake is due in Februar y.

1% Mortgage Fact or Fiction Right or Wrong For You
If your bottom line is to have the absolute smallest monthly payment possible, this may be
for you. It's a 30-year mortgage and your first 5 years of payments are calculated at only 1%
-interest. This equals only $321.00 per month for every $100,000 you borrow. You can buy a
new home or refinance to combine mortgages, credit cards, and bills all for an incredibly low
payment. You can also get cash for improvements or cash to invest. So what's the catch? In
exchange for your extremely low payment, your balance will not drop, and it does riot need
to drop. The whole key and logic to this program is tied to our booming real estate market.
Our home's values are growing 10 to 30% per year, more than anywhere in the country.
More cash equity is being built through appreciation than you could ever build by paying
principle. You don't need to pay principle, save your money. Your cash equity will grow at
record rates on its own, without your help, and you will have the smallest payment
imaginable in return. You get the best of both worlds, small payment and record equity
growth. If you have a 30-year mortgage, it's almost all interest anyway, so why not have
payment that's 50 to 75% less. In real dollars your balance will increase only about 2% per
year. That is pocket change compared to real cash equity we're building here in SW Florida.
