are expected to cost less than
the Sarasota County site, and
may even be carved out'of
military bases already owned
by the federal government.
"The important thing is
that we now have the none"
Jayne said. "It's very exciting
that we'll have' the ability to
meet the needs of an aging
veteran population. \'Ve rec-
ognize that these cemeteries
become national shrines, so
it's not just of matter of buy-
ing a level field for burials."
Federal officials dedicated
new national cemeteries in
Detroit and Pittsburgh last


year, and currently have' an-
other under construction
north of Atlanta. A fourth,
near Philadelphia, is on the
same timetable as the Sara-
sota Couhny project and will
be announced this spring.
"We try to pick the best
possible sites," Jayne said,
"because they will be ours to
take care of so long as there is
a federal government. In
2006, we anticipate the
deaths of 687,000 veterans,
many of whose families will
request our services. We are
driven by that mission."

Grove Terrace plans

worry tenants

Residents wonder if leaving them out of
redevelopment planning is a prelude to
forcing them out.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


The announced resigna-
tion of Peter Lopez as Venice
Housing Authority's executive
director isn't expected to
derail redevelopment efforts
of South County's only public
housing complex.
Surprisingly, that leaves an
air of disappointment around
many of the residents at
Grove Terrace Apartment
Complex.
Residents Council presi-
dent Carter Canada admitted
in an interview that many
tenants feel left out of the
planning process; question
the need to demolish the 35-
year-old buildings; and worry
about Lopez saying readmis-
sion to the rebuilt Grove
Terrace is not guaranteed.
These- comments come
from Canada and the Res-
idents Council, though Can-
ada credits Lopez for coming
in two years ago and putting
VHAback on its own feet.
"The only place where I
part company with (Lopez) is
with what he wants to do with
the property here," Canada
said. "Right now, they're pat-

for preserving 50 units for
low-income.
"This is the last refuge. All
I'm trying to do is my duty, as
the people in 1970 did (when
Grove Terrace was built). I
appreciate the 50 units, but it
should be 300 units if we're
going to do even a half-way
decent job."
Settling for less
Many residents supported
plans for a 20-acre communi-
ty on Laurel Road, but those
ideas fell through when the
VHA could not obtain land
from either Sarasota County
or Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice, both
major land owners in that
area.
That left theVHA's 6.6 acres
on Grove Street just off East
Venice Avenue next to Hat-
chett Creek. Lopez is pursu-
ing tax-credit financing to pay
for an estimated $16 million
redevelopment project that
would displace all current
residents for a year or longer.

tion letter last week that these

New equipment makes voting machine call inevitable


Sarasota County paid $4.7 million for ES&S touch
screen machines without paper ballots. The
company now produces models that scan paper
ballots and meet federal standards.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

It's no longer a matter of if.
It's a question of when Sara-
sota County will make 'the
tough political decision to
trade in its paperless touch
screen voting machines for
federally certified newer mo-


dels that provide verifiable
ballot receipts for manual
recounts after close elections.
"I'm still waiting for the
companies that produce
these machines to develop
something better. I want the
magic widget," Elections Su-
pervisor Kathy Dent told the
Pelican Press. "This isn't just


about little black boxes. It's
about security, procedures,
people and policies."
The county owns 1,615
ES&S machines that it bally-
hooed'as state of the art in
2001 when they came from
the manufacturer with a $4.7
million price tag. Now there is
new and better equipment
available with printers that
produce a verifiable paper
trail for recounts.

Bon Secours-Venice Hos-

the open-heart surgery unit.
The decision to grant the
unit to Venice was an-

Agency for Health Care Ad-

over competitors Columbia
Fawcett Hospital in Port
Charlotte and Doctors Hos-

"I think it's exactly what
this community needs," said
Roy Hess, Venice Hospital's

The plan for the Venice
center includes 6,794 square
feet of new construction and
4,706 square feet of renova-

The total project cost is $4.9
million.
The hospital has already
applied for a $1-million grant
from The Venice,Foundation
to help find the new facility.
The foundation, which was
formed from the sale of
Venice Hospital to Bon
Secours in 1995, provides
grants to programs that serve
the community.
"The final decision will
be made by our board in

Venice Land Clearing is
operating a -vegetative waste
chipper mill on property Although the sign says the facility is only open until 4:30 p.m.
owned by Cintom Properties on weekdays, operations at Venice Land Clearing go on after
on Joejeff Street in North dark, including Saturdays and Sundays. Lights allow VLC to
Port. operate the chipper into the night.


SUNI PHOTOS 8 SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
The view from Walter Fritz's back yard is a mountain of plant waste waiting to be composted.
"Sometimes the odor is so bad," Fritz said, "that it makes your eyes burn." Fritz's property backs
up to the Venice Land Clearing operation. In the past, VLC had placed plant waste on'Fritz's
property.


Even after the trucks stop
coming, the wood chipper is
operating, he said.
Levesque and some of his
neighbors hope the city will
take further steps to enforce
zoning requirements atVLC.
Both Levesque and Walter
Fritz said that the \LC opera-


tions expanded significantly
since they both moved into
their homes about four years
ago.
"This is supposed to be a
residential and agricultural
area," said Levesque.
The city commission is
expected to reeie\w this facil-


ity at an upcoming meeting.
Dean could not be reach-
ed for comment, nor could
representatives, of the city
planning department.

trade in its Diebold equip-
ment for new ES&S models
that include AutoMark ballot
markers, which have passed
federal muster but still aren't
certified by Florida elections
officials.
A similar decision could
come out of Polk County this
week, which also has Diebold
equipment. Elections-Super-
visor Lori Edwards will re-
portedly recommend a


switch to the ES&S machines
with AutoMark ballot mark-
ers.
Last June, when ES&S an-
nounced it had been cleared
by federal elections officials
in Washington, D.C., to sell
the AutoMark ballot markers,
the message was that issues
such as privacy, accessibility
and paper verifications were
problems of the past.
While many communities
around Florida and the coun-.
try decided to trade in equip-


ment and purchase ES&S
machines with AutoMark bal-
lot markers, or another ES&S
product called the V-PAT (an
acronym for "voter verifiable
paper audit trail"), Dent
remains skeptical.
She describes "printers
that jam" and "ballots that
aren't necessarily secret." The
nightmare Dent envisions
with new equipment is a
manual recount.
"There would be many lit-
tle pieces of paper," she pre-


dicted, "that would be 100
times worse to work with
than chads."
For those with short mem-
ories, many Florida counties
used punch-card voting
machines in the 2000 general
election that sometimes pro-
duced "hanging chads" when
the indentations on paper
ballots didn't fully separate,
and failed to record votes
when they were tabulated.
SOfficials forced to manual-
ly recount ballots when the

case.
Durbin began serving a 25-
year prison sentence Feb. 1,
1995, after his conviction on
two counts of sexual battery,
on a victim younger than 12
years old. He was released
Dec. 12, 2004, just short of 10
years later.
Information on Durbin
published in a-November
2004 article in the Gondolier
Sun came from court records,
prison records and police
reports.
Durbin was arrested for
DUI in October 2004.
He said the judge sen-
tenced him' to one year's pro-
bation, 50 hours of commu-
nity service and attendance at
DUI school.
Durbin also said his proba-
tion on the sex charges has
been lifted. He said he is try-
ing to get his name removed
from the Internet list of sex
offenders.

True confession?
Iorio said Thursday Dur-
bin's story about a set-up
does not ring true.
"He gave us a videotaped
confession," Iorio said. "Ask
him about that"
Durbin said he confessed
to what actually had hap-
pened that night. However,
he said he did not know he
was being videotaped.
"I was sleeping and she
(victim) started to have oral


THE STORY SO FAR
Venice resident and convicted sex offender Patrick Durbin, 60,
received a 25-year sentence in 1995. H9 was released from prison
in December 2004. His early release caused a furor among local
investigators.
Florida Department of Corrections officials said that Durbin
received 20 days of gain time for each month served, qualifying
him for early release.
Gain time is time credited for an inmate's simply behaving himself,
staying out of trouble, not causing any problems and following all
the rules.
Durbin got 3,000 days lopped off his sentence 9,125 days or 25
, years the moment he walked through the prison door to begin
his sentence. Then, officials said, he earned another 2,362 days
while he was there.
Officials said the state used basic gain time as a means of solving
the prison overcrowding of the '80s.
Overcrowding was eliminated December 1994.
After Oct. 1, 1995, the law stated that inmates must serve 85 per-
cent of their sentence.


sex with me. I woke up and
thought it was her mother,"
Durbin said. "I jumped up
and told her to stop, that this
wasn't right."
Durbin said he thought the
issue had beepi resolved.
However, the girl, whom Dur-
bin described as "troubled,"
told her story while undergo-
ing counseling.
The female victim was
about 11 years old at the time.
"The setup came when
they (authorities) started
building on everything, say-
ing it had been going on for a
long time, which wasn't true,"
Durbin said.
Durbin claims he had lived


with the victim's mother for
about three years even
though friends had warned
him that she was mixed up in
the drug trade.
Durbin steadfastly main-
tains his innocence on the
molestation charges.
"I did not molest her,"
Durbin said, "but I put myself
in that position to be there
because I was living with her
mother. I was asleep."
He said the child fabricat-
ed parts of her story to
authorities, ,and also was
coached on what to say.

Life inside
Durbin said prison life for


a sex offender is no bed of
roses.
"Nothing is sacred. inside.
It doesn't take long for the
information to get to the
compound and they (inmates
and guards) will do what they
see fit," Durbin said. "It wasn't
as rough for me because my
psychological evaluation said
I wasn't a threat to anybody."
Durbin said he did not
waste his time in prison, and
took advantage of just about
every program offered.

Life outside
Durbin said life on the out-
side as a registered sex of-
fender is no picnic, either.;
"It's pretty rough, I just
wish they would leave me
alone," Durbin said. "I'm just
trying to be a useful citizen.
I've got to live with it."
He also has some advice
for parents on how-to help
keep sex predators away from
children.
"Watch the children close-
ly, know where they are at all
times, don't dress them up so
they will draw attention,"
Durbin said. "TV could be
part of the problem because
they show young kids in the,
same light as showgirls."

Bush vs. Gore presidential
battle came down to only a
handful of disputed votes had
to hold the paper ballots up to
a light and decide whether a
hole had been properly
punched.
Sarasota County and many
others own ES&S iVotronic
machines that do not provide
a paper ballot for manual
recounts. Inexplicably, the
only -state-certified touch-
screen machines that cur-
rently meet "disabled accessi-
ble" standards are ES&S iVo-
tronics.
Last May, Miami-Dade
considered replacing $24.5
million worth of ES&S
iVotronics after a study con-
cluded the number of voters
recorded by election workers
didn't match the number; of
ballots cast at 260 of 749
polling places in the 2004
general election.
Dent attributed the Mi-
ami-Dade discrepancies to

"human error" and described -
the controversy over ES&S
machines as symptomatic of
a "very political" environ-
ment in the South Florida
community, which also hadJ
severe problems in the 2000,
general election.
Since Sarasota County's
2001 decision to buy the ES&S
machines, Dent has stead-
fastly defended the choice
over optical scanning equip-
ment that processes paper-,
ballots.
One of her justifications -
has been they meet the feder-
al and state disabled accessi-
ble guidelines.
Dent has estimated the 4-
year-old ES&S machines have
a life cycle that could extend
until about 2012, by which,
time fiscal management offi-
cials will have had enough
time to budget for new voting .
machines that produce a ver-
ifiable paper trail for manual i
recounts.

VHA fom iage A
scaled-down plans would not
meet his "professional goals
as an agent of change nor my
projections of future com-
pensation." His resignation is
effective March 31.
It's these "scaled-down
plans" that are worrying resi-
dents. Theywant to know why
no engineering reports state
the old Grove Terrace must be
demolished, and are worried
about Lopez saying in a re-
cent interview that residents
are not guaranteed read-
mission.
Venice attorney Jon Preik-
sat has been hired, pro bono,
to represent the Residents
Council of Grove Terrace, and
he intends to make sure resi-
dents are no longer excluded
from the planning process.
Exclusion
One example of exclusion
is that the city of Venice was
given a set of concept plans
for the new Grove Terrace,
showing 84 apartment units,
a clubhouse and swimming
pool, but they were never pro-
vided to the Residents Coun-
cil. Lopez has suggested as
many as 144 units, which
would require variance ap-
provals from the city.
Lopez also suggested re-
naming Grove Terrace and
asked for recommendations,
but Canada was only givenl:a
week to ask residents for
input. The deadline for sug-
gestions is today (Friday).
"This is always a problem
with redevelopments" Can-
ada said. "The executive di-
rectors do not want to share
the power with the residents
council And I have faith that
Mr. Preiksat will make sure
our rights are protected."
Both Preiksat and Canada
praised the VHA board mem-
bers and Lopez for instituting
change and dealing with histor-
ical problems at Grove Terrace.

GRAPHIC COURTESY OF THE CITY OF VENICE
The Venice Housing Authority submitted this conceptual site plan for what the rebuilt Grove Terrace public housing complex
would look like. Though not finalized, these plans show 84 apartment units, a clubhouse and swimming pool.


They're just unsure of the
redevelopment plans. For ex-
ample, Preiksat does not
know if VHA has a Plan B in
case the Low-Income Hous-
ing Tax Credit application, is
rejected.


If it is, extensive renova-
tions will be needed on the
existing 50 apartment units to
carry them into the future,
Preiksat said.
"We all know this plan to
redevelop is contingent on


getting this tax credit financ-
ing, which is very competitive
and not guaranteed," Preiksat
said. "The question is, what's
the backup plan if they don't
get the financing? Do they
have a backup plan, like going


in and remodeling? That is
one thing we'd like to know.
"It seems like everything is
riding on tax credits."

CEMETERY ..,
Target date: 2008
The federal agency will pay
about $7 million to buy the
Sarasota County site it feels is
best suited for the facility,
then spend another $25 mil-
lion developing the first 60-
acre phase. When it is com-
pleted, the 350-acre cemetery
will accommodate up to a half
million veterans.
Before the cemetery is
opened, internal roadways,
administration buildings, irri-
gation systems, assembly
areas and many other distin-
guishing features will have to
be constructed. The initial
phase may not be finished
when the first interments are
conducted.
There are about 400,000
veterans living within a 75-
mile radius of Sarasota Coun-
ty Bay Pines National Ceme-
tery in Largo is at full capacity
and can only accommodate
cremations. A Sumter County
facility more than 100 miles to
the north has available space.
Sarasota County initially
came on the federal radar
screen in 2002 when it was
one of three communities
identified by National Ceme-
tery Administration officials
in a document prepared for
Congress entitled: "Volume 1:
Future Burial Needs."
At the time, the county was
tentatively included on a list
of potential sites for the year
2016, but it quickly moved up
the list' when Bay Pines
reached capacity and was no
longer capable of serving the
families of veterans who
request casket funerals.
When the Sarasota County
site is identified, the federal
agency will hire an architect
and engineer to prepare a
master plan. The schedule
tentatively calls for construc-
tion to begin in 2008. No
name has been chosen for the
facility

OUR VIEW



State should take lead in disaster recovery


We hope that, in 2006, we will not have
to test our theory that the state of
Florida is better equipped to handle
hurricane recovery efforts than the federal
government.
That became an issue in 2005, and it
remains an issue today even more so as
the federal government wrangles with
whether the Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency should remain under the aus-
pices of Homeland Security
Hurricane Wilma provided the most obvi-
ous example of federal officials and state
agencies butting heads over who was in
charge. A Wall Street Journal story last month
outlined how Craig Fugate, Florida's emer-
gency management director, was surprised


and not so happy to learn that Homeland
Security folks had set up shop in Southwest
Florida hours before Hurricane Wilma hit.
The fact there was not enough ice, food or
water for residents on the East Coast of
Florida until more than 72 hours after Wilma
hit made everyone look bad. Gov. Jeb Bush,
who went out on a limb when he promised
aid within 24 hours, had to apologize to resi-
dents, admitting the enormity of the recovery
effort caught the state off guard.
Wilma packed a punch greater than what
many expected. Still, the governor had noth-
ing to be ashamed of. Did, or would, FEMA
and Homeland Security fare better? No. Their
track records along the Gulf Coast after
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita were evidence of


the tangled web of communication and red
tape that cost taxpayers money and kept
valuable help away while people were dying
and starving.
SThere is no sure answer how to deal with
catastrophes. There will, always be problems
and finger-pointing will always be easy to do.
We agree with Gov. Bush that state agen-
cies should take the lead in recovery efforts
- after local agencies have done their part,
especially in disasters of a smaller scale. The.
governor testified on this before Congress -
saying that federalizing hurricane response
would be a disaster much like what hap-
pened in New Orleans after Katrina swept
through that city.
Much of the blame for the slow response


in Louisiana has been laid on that state's gov-
ernor. The problems there have made a
strong argument for federal control of disas-
ter recovery.
Homeland Security has pressed local gov-
ernments to let it in first The military is also
taking a lead role in requesting authority to
take over after a disaster.
Each agency believes it can do a better job.
We do not question that they are making the
public's welfare a priority. There are too many
egos involved right now for the public's good.
We believe local agencies and the state
should be first responders. The state should
call for federal aid.
The state should be accountable to its cit-
izens.


From the past



to the present


I ended the old year finish-
ing the book, "1491: New
Revelations of the Americas
Before Columbus,'-by Charles
C. Mann.
This book did two things. It
made me wonder if bird flu
might decimate present day
societies as smallpox and
other diseases decinrated the
Indians. It also made me real-
ize what the world lost when
these Indian societies died in
their youth.
Not everywhere .but in
some Indian societes there
were trade networks, writing
systems and a 365-day calen-
dar that was more accurate
than Europe's. Some had the
zero before 32 B.C., centuries
ahead of the invention in
India.
The Inka (a spelling con-
sidered more accurate by the
author) paved 25,000 miles of
roads and built boats of reeds
large enough to sail 300 miles
from home with a crew of 20
and a load of cottoir.
Two-fifths of the world's
food crops were developed
independently in the Amer-
icas, including many.varieties
of maize, tomatoes; squash
and beans.
The Indians developed a
way to fertilize the soil, in-
creasing the yield by as much
as 880 percent. Their dark soil
might be 1 to 2 feet-deep but
sometimes as much.as 6 feet
deep. covering anywhere
from 15 to 799 acres each.
One plot was 3 miles by a half
mile. No one in Europe did
anything like this. .-
Every male citizoli of the
Triple Alliance (Atec), no
matter his economic class,
had to go to school until age
16.
The Indians living in the
Finger Lakes region:-of New
York established tlie Great
Law of Peace, which put
checks on the authority of the
Sachems. The leaders needed
the consent of the governed.
Compared to Europe, this
society was a feminist dream:
Women headed the clans and
men were the war chiefs. No
man could lead a clan and no
woman could be a war chief.
Separate but equal.
Mann believes that the
framers of our constitution,
like most colonists, were in-
fluenced by. these Indian
ideals and images of liberty.


But the development of
these societies was stopped
cold by disease.
Brought by the Europeans,
the first recorded epidemic of
smallpox occurred in 1518 in
Hispaniola, and then in 1524
when 200,000 died, and in
1533, 1535, 1538, 1558 and
1565. Typhus in 1546, influeni-
za in 1558, diphtheria 1524;
measles in 1618.
SIt is estimated that before
Columbus, the Americas had
a population of 90 million to
112 million people larger
than the population of Eur-
ope.
Disease killed 90 percent of
these people. With.workers ill
or dyinmgtre was siti tiori.
With the leaders and generals
gone, civil war broke out. The
bonds of society were torn
apart.
Herando DeSoto traveled
from Florida to North Car-
olina and west to Texas with
600 men, 200 horses and 300
pigs. Pigs carry anthrax, bru-
cellosis, leptospirosis, tric-,
hinosis and tuberculosis. The
diseases passed to deer and
turkey, and to humans.
There was no understand-
ing of quarantine. Whole In-,
dian societies were uiped out
by the time the French and
other settlers explored the
territory y.
No 'wonder the French
thought the Americas were a
wilderness. Ninety percent of
the Indians had died and the
deer and the buffalo that had
been kept at bay had multi-
plied.
Mann quotes the anthro-
pologist Claude Levi-Strauss:
"Cultures are like books, each
a volume in the great library
of humankind. In the 16th
century, more books (soci-
eties) were burned than ever
before or since. How many
Homers vanished? ... What
great works of painting,
sculpture, architecture and
music vanished or neverwere
created? Languages,. prayer,.
dreams, habits, hopes all
gone and not just once but
over and over again ...."
Will we destroy societies
that are different through our
wars?
Will we homogenize their
differences and so lose their
essence?
Could our society disinte-
grate in a similar fashion from
bird flu?
The consensus seems to
be, probably not. However,
there is no vaccine and scien-
tists won't be able to develop
one for three years.
If the flu becomes transfer-
able by human-to-human
contact, it will spread ex-
tremely fast because people
travel throughout the world.
Quarantine will be the only
defense, especially in the
beginning.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Wod give up rights to save a life


Editor:
On Sunday morning I watchedwith disbelief as Sen. Charles
Schumer, D-New York, attempted to defend his party's nega-
ti\e position on the extension of the Patriot Act by Congress.
Senator, I challenge you to spend a day explaining to the
families of the survivors of the Sept. 11 slaughter, along with
the those families that have suffered the loss of one of our
armed forces, how not monitoring phone calls to the Middle
East is keeping the United States safe, and how the collection of
information should be subject to your "Congress" before it
occurs.
We are engaged with an enelmy that knows no rules, senator.
They fly planes into buildings in our country and kill innocent
people. They strap explosives on not only themselves, but on
women and even children. They hide in the night like cowards
and prey on the innocent. They move in the shadows.
Is this the agenda of the Democratic Congress members and
senators? This is the most vile act of partisan politics ever. The
sole purpose of this position is a veiled attempt to discredit the
White House due to the pending elections for Congress in

Property taxes
aggravate the
housing problem
Editor:
Everybody is squawking
that we need affordable low-
income housing for the work-
ers of our community that
can't afford to buy a house in
Sarasota County. Well, I am a
landlord providing well-
maintained, low-income
housing for Sarasota Section
8 rental assistance program.
But if the county keeps
raising my taxes 20-25 per-
cent a year, due to the
increased property values we
have seen over the past cou-
ple years, I am going to be
taxed right out of business.
Then they can raise taxes
for everybody and it can be a
problem for the whole com-
munity to find affordable


housing for the underwaged
residents of Sarasota.

North Port
High school hoops
is best show in town
Editor:
This letter is to encourage
area basketball fans to attend
the Venice High Schoolboy's
basketball games.
I attended the boy's home
game on Wednesday the 4th
against Port Charlotte (then
12-2), and was impressed
with the fundamentals shown
by the players. The Venice
players appear well coached
and play good team ball. They
even kept their composure
while Port Charlotte shot 29
free throws andVenice shot 7.
(Venice lost by 3 points).
It is obvious that the new


coach is doing a very good
job; it is also obvious that
many fans are missing out on
good high school basketball.
Some may have thought that
"the game" that night was the
Rose Bowl, but those in atten-
dance at VHS know the real
game was right here in town.
The girl's basketball team
also could use your support,
so check your local paper for
the schedules and take ad-
vantage of this good and inex-
pensive entertainment.

Don't add length
to wharf dock
Editor:
In mid-2004, the Sarasota
County commissioners, sit-
ting as the Water and Nav-
igation Control Authority,
heard the petition of the
owner of Fisherman's Wharf
in Venice to extend his dock
some 686 feet along the
Intracoastal, just off the sea-
wall of the Harbor Lights
community.
A tie was resolved by the
chair. He proposed the Com-
promise that the extension be
shortened to 400 feet. That
compromise passed. On Jan.
10, the commission will hear
a petition to restore some 264
feet voted down in 2004.
It's important to remember
that the original permit was
tainted because the Florida
Department of Environ-
rlental Protection, whose
recommendations were the
prime basis for approval by
the commissioners, had en-
tered into a separate agree-
ment with the owner of
Fisherman's Wharf to resolve
a long-standing controversy
about property ownership of
adjacent underwater lands.
It was tainted because the
owner of Fisherman's Wharf


required the agreement be
contingent upon his getting
from the self-same DEP a
final permit for this dock ex-
tension "not subject to chal-
lenge and appeal." Once the
DEP agreed to that contin-
gency, its impartiality was
called into question.
It is lamentable that the
commissioners' 2004 deci-
sion was based on a possibly
stacked deck. To approve the
requested. additional exten-
sion would undo the mitigat-
ing compromise achieved by
the commissioners at that
time.

No skate shows
on U.S. 41 Business
Editor:
To the person who wanted
to talk about the city donating
$50,000, then just wanting to
complain and flat out lie
about the skaters: You're
either a business owner near
the skate and surf store who is
jealous because the store has
customers and you just have
all day to look out the window
at this "skate show" on Busi-
ness 41, or a snowbird or
grouchy old person with no
life who forgets what it's like
to have fun.
There are no skate shows
on Business 41; grow up. You
may see skaters not yet old
enough to drive heading
down to the store. A lot of
them cross right there. Or
perhaps it's the teens getting
out of school heading home.
While a few of these kids
might smoke, they are not
gathering in groups having
smoke breaks. You may be
confused. The only smoking I
see being done in groups is
the gang of senior citizens sit-

A good way to start a new year


LUKE WILSON
COLUMNIST


I kicked around the idea of
trying to come up with some
kind of clever column to start
the new year off, and had a
few ideas, but my heart kept
leading me back to what I
need to be writing about -
being a better person this
coming year.
It's not that I was a bad per-
son in 2005,: but losing my
baby sister days before
Christmas is making me take
a long look at life, at what's
important.
f Many-of you know, but if
you don't, my sister Peggy
succumbed to complications
from diabetes and died Dec.
22 at age 42. She'd been sick
and suffered a very long time,
and I appreciate the comfort
my family has received
through cards, flowers, food,
visits, prayers, calls, e-mails,
and from the memorial ser-

The topic of bird flu came
up during the Christmas

that Brokaw said that he had

I want to listen more close-

with their hearts, and to
appreciate and respect them
for who they are and what
they believe.'I want to gather
wisdom from them and apply
it to my own life where I can,
allowing them to make me a
better person.
I want to play with children
more, to revive the imagina-
tion I once had as a child. I
want to see the world through
the eyes of a child again, and
to be astonished by the small-
est wonder of nature.
I want to climb trees and
work puzzles and lick the left-
over icing off cake frosting
bowls. And I want to read sto-
ries to my grandchildren and
answer every question they
have for me.
I want to watch for shoot-
ing stars, chase fireflies, skip
rocks and listen to whippoor-

I want to make paper air-

Thanks USPS. I wanted to let them have,it the United
States Postal Service. I want to give them a compliment and
praise. I live off Center Road by the Catholic church and put a
get-well card in my mailbox to be picked up on Tuesday, Dec.
20, and by that evening it had been delivered to my friend in
Englewood. She called that evening same-day service. We're
always knocking the post office about how they don't do a good
job and I feel they did an excellent job and I wanted to thank
them. You don't get any better than same-day delivery.


write songs and read all the
many books I've been buying
over the years that I've been
meaning to read.
I want to have long conver-
sations with elderly people,
and ask them questions
about themselves and the
world they knew long ago. I
want to watch their eyes light
up when they relive special
moments from their lives and
to dry their tears when the
.memories are too sad. I want
to record it all for posterity
and as a way of them living
on, beyond their time on this
earth.
In short, I want to live.
I think we all do, deep
down. But the haste and com-
plications of this world dis-
tract us sometimes, and
though we mean to get back
on track, more than often we
don't. We're not bad people

I can't bring Peggy back by

is insurance. The writer does-
n't mention the fact that it is
near impossible to get insur-
ance on manufactured
homes. In a recent article,
written on Dec. 18, in the
Gondolier Sun, there was an
article by one of the staff writ-
ers about affordable modular
homes in North Port. Again I
question the theory that these
homes are worthwhile be-
cause of all the above, espe-
cially insurance. So, think
about these things.
Print is too small. I'm look-
ing at the Wednesday, Dec. 14,
newspaper on deciding East
Venice Avenue's future look
We have this beautiful, gor-


geous colored map and the
key to reading the map is so
tiny that you would have to be
with a big magnifying glass to
read the key.Now, somewhere
else in the article there is a key
that explains each color. I
haven't gotten there yet. I
wonder if this could be re-
printed so people could read
it.
We'd be fired. The head-
lines say the Senate clears the
GOP lawmakers in a $46,000
junket to Canada. That is the
most amazing thing I've ever
heard. The Senate investi-
gates the Senate, and says
there's nothing wrong. If some
of us common, ordinary peo-
ple did that with our compa-
nies, we would be fired in a
New York second. This is piti-
ful. This is the way this
democracy is running now

Number two, I think the
Venice Community Center
does need a little more
strength in the new year
ahead because they did imply
there was to be a hurricane

three, Venice City Council
members should be more
sensitive to the needs of the
people who they serve. The
council people are way off in
some cases.
Manufactured homes. A
while back, one of the Gon-
dolier Sun readers wrote a
lengthy article about the
value of manufactured homes
and what a good buy they are.
I certainly question that be-
cause, 'although there are new

manufacturers, some may be
good and some may not be.
The other problem that was
not addressed is installation:

more active role in treasury
management. I'll also be
assisting Rod with setting the
strategic direction 'of the

opening, a drum and per-
cussion store, The Rhythm

Hanna said.
Hanna and Gail started the
first Rhythm Inlet iri Maine.
For the past few years they

cles, as well as supporting the
Nokomis Beach drummers
' and so many others," Ann
Marie Mercon of the Flute
Circle said.

to begin the programs they
had in place in Maine.

Baskin-Robbins opening in


Venice


New for 2006, ice cream
lovers in this area can join the
more than 3.7 million people
every week who enjoy a
Baskin-Robbins serving.


SUN PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTON
Work is progressing on the
new Baskin-Robbins/Dunkin'
Donuts combo store at 1801
South Tamiami Trail.

Scheduled to open in
Venice in mid-March, Bas-
kin-Robbins, the world's larg-
est ice cream franchise, will


be part of a combo-style store
alongside a new Dunkin'
Donuts. Both are being com-
pleted at 1801 South Tamiami
Trail on the site of the former
Dearbury Donuts in South
Venice.
According to Andrew
Mastrangelo, spokesman for
both companies, they will be
the traditional standard
design with indoor seating.
The combined stores typical-
ly have a complement of 20-
30 employees, both full- and
part-time.
TheVenice store will offer a
full range of frozen ice cream
treats..
Famous for its innovative
flavors, flavor of the month
and a flavor library approach-
ing 1,000 offerings, Baskin-
Robbins was founded in 1946
in Glendale, Calif. Now it has
more than 2,800 outlets in the
United States, part of a total of
5,400 outlets in 35 countries.
Although strongest on the
east coast, in Boston and New
York, this new store is part of
the company's current ex-
pansion program in Florida.
Venice Realtors
to open in Osprey
As Osprey continues to
grow and expand, so busi-


nesspeople are realizing the
importance of having an
office in the area.
That includes Richard
Bradway & Associates, which
in six months will open a real-
ty offices at 1400 South
Tamiami Trail, Osprey, in the
building currently occupied
by Coldwell Banker.
"We own the building and
are not renewing the lease
because it is such a good mar-
ket and our agents want
exposure to that area," com-
mented Linda Bradway.
It is not company policy to
take on more agents now and
the company currently oper-
ates with 30 employees. The
associates working with the
Bradways participate in a
rotation plan that will include
this new office together with
the existing island offices on
Tamiami Trail and West
Venice Avenue.
Work starts on
Charleston Place
Infrastructure work has
begun at Venetia Bay Boul-
evard at the northern junction
of U.S. 41 Bypass and Business
41 for the new Charleston
Place development announc-
ed a few weeks ago.
First to go up will be stage


one: 36 residences and the
club meeting house, accord-
ing to spokesperson Fred Ma-
lone. It will be a 95-residence
community designed to arc-
hitecturally replicate the
South Carolina city it's named
for.
Manhattan Construction
Company is building the pro-
ject, which encompasses
one- and two-bedroom con-
dominiums and town homes.
The community meeting
center will house exercise
equipment, catering facilities,
a kitchen and meeting rooms.
Using the "walking city"
concept, Charleston Place
will have lush landscapes
with fountains, enclaves and
courtyards. There will be no
additional retail, as Casey's
Grill & Tavern, Northern
Trust Bank and the Hampton
Inn already adjoin the new
development.
Sales agent is Michael
Saunders & Company inVen-
ice.
Stock trader opens store
After completing more
than 20 years as a trader's
assistant on the trading floor
of the New York and Amer-
ican stock exchanges, Cyn-
thia Carallo decided to move


south and join her family in
Venice.
A few weeks ago after
searching downtown unsuc-
cessfully for an art-only con-
signment store, she decided
to open her own, Cynthia's
Unique Gift Gallery at .738 E.
Venice Ave.
"There is a lot of local tal-
ent in Florida and artists
appreciate the opportunity to
put stuff in my store," said
Carallo.
Open Tuesday through
Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6
p.m., the store features
unique items by artists from
St. Petersburg to Punta Gor-
da, including collage, decou-
page, oil paintings, painted
glass, photography and jewel-
ry. Call 485-8392.

Local aid available for abuse victims


BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

Imagine your matching
luggage is two Publix paper
bags.
That's not uncommon for
the people Patty Hinman
works with.
Hinman is a longtime vic-
tims advocate with Domestic
Abuse Shelter Homes Inc., an
organization that helps vic-
tims of domestic abuse
rebuild their lives.
So often, she sees the suf-
ferings of individuals who
come to DASH with next to
nothing, carrying everything
they own in make-shift suit-
cases.
"We help a lot ofpeople get
back on their feet, and we
customize our services to the
person's individual needs,"
Hinman said. "We help them'


repair their credit, find jobs
and eventually afford a place
of their own."
Unlike many shelters that
help only women, DASH
offers assistance to battered
men as well. Along with
another center in Maine,
DASH is one of a mere hand-
ful of organizations that aids
male abuse victims.
"We actually work with
family violence," Hinman
said. "It could be a mom, a
dad, a stepmom, brother or
sister. We see some people
who suffer from disabilities
and have become victims as a
result. And obviously we see
more women than men. But I
myself work with four or five
men on an ongoing basis.
We've seen eight to 10 .men)
the past couple of years."
SDASH also has a pet pro-
gram that allows victims to


bring their animals to the safe
house with them.
"Alot of the time, that's one
of the few things they.have
left," she said. "Sometimes,
the pets have been abused,
but more often, they've been
used as a pawn by the
abuser."
Getting creative
SHinman says it takes a long
time for a person to recover
from an abusive situation.
DASH provides "a hiatus" to
help victims bridge the gap
from the trauma they've suf-
fered to a time when they can
live on their own again with-
out fear.
"The majority actually stay
in the area," said Hinman.
"They become attached, and-
it's heartwarming to see them
turn their lives around. We've
had some wonderful success


stories, and some of them
keep in touch for years after-
wards.
"I get Christmas cards, and
I get a little emotional, getting
to see some of their kids grow
up. These women go on to
have amazing lives. They're
strong, and some of the most
remarkable people I've ever
met.",
Unlike charities that ac-
cept gifts of clothes, toys or
furniture, DASH doesn't. It
sinply has no place to store
large donations, although'
Target occasionally gives
small appliances; and Beall's
has made clothing and shoe
donations in the past.
Hinman says some of the
most useful things people can
donate are gift cards.
"We can always use them.
for any store, in any denomi-
nation," she said. "You'd be


amazed what a $5 gift card
from Home Depot or Publix
can do. I've even used them to
buy the large, foil turkey-
roasting pans. People come in
with nothing' and I've seen
them take those, roasting
pans and ude them as draw-
ers. They get very creative."
Someone with an item the
DASH house might need
should simply call and ask.
However, there are times the
organization has specific
needs.
"Right now we could use
linens: towels, face clothes,
things in really good shape,"
said Hinman. "And we can
'always use snacks and food,
especially dried or canned
goods."
Benefit
The work is never easy, but
Hinman has seen enough


success stories to know it is
also amazingly rewarding.
"It can be so overwhelming
at times, but it's worth it ifwe
can bring one person up, with
their children, and stop the
(abusive) cycle. When people
are working together, so:
many wonderful things can;
happen."
A concert is planned to
benefit DASH 2-4:30 p.m.,
Sunday, Jan. 8, at the North
Port High School Performing
Arts Center.
DASH will present "The
Musical History of Jazz," a
concert featuring Tony On-
orato and his six "Gentlemen
of fazz."
Tony and his group, who
performs every Thursday
afternoon at the Gazebo in
Venice, will offer jazz stan-
dards, as well as selections of
Dixieland and big band.


County belatedly steers toward driver's education summer classes


A 2002 Florida law allowed counties to collect an
additional $3 traffic citation fee for classes.
Sarasota County initially rejected a chance to par-
ticipate because of the administrative costs.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A belated Sarasota County
decision to stop playing
financial hardball and pro-
d ian' additional $200.000 of,
annual revenue for drivers
education programs at public
schools will allow local
teenagers.,to learn behind-
the-wheel skills during the,
summer months.


On Dec. 14, the county,
commission unanimously re-,
versed its 2002 policy and
agreed to participate in a pro-
gram County Administrator
Jin Lev previously described
as an "un'lunded manida'te"
from the Florida Legislature.
"As a result of this decision,
many more kids will be
served," Commissioner Da-
vid Mills said. "I've been dri-
ving on interstate highways


quite a bit lately, and the,
behavior out there seems
bizarre. NASCAR is having an
influence, and some people
drive like they are in races."
Commissioner Shannon
Staub agreed that driving on
multi-lane highways has
become dangerous.
"Part of the problem is that
people get into the left larie
and drive slow," she said. "It
forces other drivers to change
lanes so they can get around
them on the right."
On Nov. 15, when the dri-
vers education assistance
item initially came up for
reconsideration, Mills asked,'
"What's changed?"


Ley explained. "There was
some financial uncertainty
when we were first
approached. History has
shown the administrative
costs can be absorbed."
Full-blown classes
In 2002, state lawmakers
adopted the Dori Slosberg
Driver Education Safety Act
and gave all 67 counties the
option of increasing civil traf-
fic fines by $3 to supplement
school driving education pro-
grams. More than 50 counties
agreed to participate after
Sarasota County's decision'
not to.
The local option revenue


raising measure was named
after the 14-year-old daugh-
ter of State Rep. Irving
Slosberg, D-Boca Raton, who
was killed in a car crash with a
teenage driver.
Prior to the act's passage,
very few school systems pro-
vided summer driver educa-
tion classes.
"We receive no money
from the state for' summer
school driver education,"
explained '-Dani; Parrett, a'
arasbta C8iiiity school prin-
cipal on special assignment
who coordinates drivers edu-
cation programs. "There was
a time when we dropped dri-
ver education, but after a rash


of accidents the high schools
now have full-blown classes."
What the public school
system does is offer classes
conducted by certified.teach-
ers, and then contract out on-
the-road instruction to pri-
vate driving schools. The
additional money will allow
driver education on almost a
year-round basis.
In addition to administer-
ing driver education pro-
grams,- for -the Sar'asta"s
County school system, Parrett
is on special. assignment to
Charlotte County as part of a
cooperative effort to rebuild
schools that were damaged
by Hurricane Charley in 2004.

STAFF REPORT


An expected cold snap this
weekend has prompted Sara-
sota County fire officials to
warn residents of the dangers
of home heaters.
According to the National
Fire Protection Agency, heat-
ers are the leading cause of
home fires during December,
January and February. In
2002, 45,500 heating equip-
ment-related home fires
accounted for 220 deaths, 990
injuries and $449 million in
property damage in the
United States according to
the National Fire Protection
Agency.
These home fires involved
portable electric heaters,
wood stoves, fireplaces, port-
able kerosene heaters and
room gas heaters. In Sarasota
County, 23 heating-related
fires have occurred in the past
three years, exceeding
$25,300 in property damage.
"These fires don't have to
happen," said Sarasota Coun-
ty Fire Chief Brian Gorski.
"Most fires with space heaters
are preventable if key safety
measures are followed."


I IVI


I would like to thank my loyal customers and
inform them I have moved to:
"Razor's Edge"
located at 1064 Venice Avenue East, 485-2165.
I look forward to continuing to serve all your
salon needs. Gratefully yours, Kathy Jo Whitney.


Good advice
To avoid problems, Gorski
recommends keeping space:
heaters, both. portable and
fixed, at least 3 feet away from
anything that can burn,
including furnishings, bed-
ding, and clothing. Turn the
'heater off when leaving the
room or going to sleep.
Wood stoves and fireplaces'
also need special care. When
buying a new unit, have a
qualified technician perform
the installation. If the appli-
ance is already installed, have
it checked to make sure the
installation was done proper-
.ly.
Most fires in wood stoves,
fireplaces and chimneys
occur due to a lack of regular
cleaning, leading to the
buildup of creosote, the
residue of unburned fuel.
Heating devices should be
inspected arid cleaned on a
regular basis according to the
manufacturer's instructions.
Use only seasoned hardwood
and don't burn trash in a fire-
place because the fire could
easily burn out of control.
Keep sparks and embers
inside the fireplace with fire


screens made of heat-tem-
pered glass or sturdy metal.
Heating equipment that
burns fuel is a potential'
source of carbon monoxide,
an odorless, colorless, poiso-
nous gas that is created when
fuel burns incompletely. To
provide early warnings about
accumulating CO in the
home, Gorski recommends
installing a CO alarm.
Symptoms of carbon
monoxide poisoning are
severe headache, dizziness,
mental confusion, nausea
and faintness. Many symp-
toms of carbon monoxide
poisoning are similar to the
flu, food poisoning or other
illnesses.

Pirates shake off rust, Indians


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Port Charlotte High boys
basketball coach Bill Specht
always expects a tough time
inVenice.
Coming off a two-week
layoff, the Pirates also had to
shake off some rust against
the seemingly ever-stubborn
Indians Wednesday night.
It went down to the wire,
but Port Charlotte had
enough to hold off the hosts,
50-47, in a Class 5A District
12 contest.
Port Charlotte improved
to 13-2 overall and 6-1 in
district while Venice fell to
6-9 and 2-5.
The Pirates were led by
guard Chris Irvin, who
popped for a game-high 23
points, and forward Jonathan
Lewis, who added 13 points
to the cause.
"We kriew it would be nip
and tuck," Specht said. "We
got some stops at the end."
A crucial point of the
game came midway through
the fourth quarter with Ven-
ice nursing a 41-40 lead.
Josh Ray hit a 3-pointer to
put the Pirates up 43-41. Irvin
then had a steal, drove the'
length of the floor for a
layup, and was flagrantly
fouled by Ariel Bonilla. Irvin
sank both free throws to
put Port up 47-41.
Irvin saved face at the
free throw line in fie fourth
quarter for the Pirates. going
6-for-6. Lewis was just 2-
for-6 at the stripe in the final
session, helping keep Venice
close.
"Free throw shooting has
,b .dtLr strength all \-eq.r,"
Specht said. "Le\is is an 85
percent shooter at the line.
We're coming off 14 days
without playing. We'll be
alright."
The missed free throws
allowed Venice to pull with-
in one possession, trailing
48-45 with 25 seconds to
go.
Bonilla drove the lane but
the ball was swatted away.

der the Port basket with 10

Forward Kalen Lyons kept
the Indians in the game
with 16 points.
Port Charlotte went to
the free throw line 31 times.

the stripe seven times:

when they go to the free
throw line 31 times and we
only go seven times," Caval-

Lady Indians' Howell,

Hinlde, Beasley and

Christiani

take firsts at county


weightlifting

STAFF REPORT

Nancy Tessier knows her
Venice High girls weightlift-
ing team is the tops in the
county.
SBecause of a technicality,
the Lady Indians had to settle
for second in Wednesday's
Sarasota County Meet held
at Sarasota High.
Tessier, the veteran Venice
coach, entered the meet
under the presumption that
lifters could, bounce up a
weight, a practice common
in the past.
After Thursday's meet, she
was told that those who
went up a weight would not
be counted in the team
score.
That left Venice second to
Sarasota by a scant three
points.
There were still numerous
strong performances by Tes-
sier's group of young lifters.
In the first action of the
season, senior Taylor Howell
was a winner, capturing the
119-pound class. She had a
bench press of 105 pounds
and a clean and jerk of 95


g

for a total of 200.
Three other.Venice girls
had individual firsts.
Chelsea Beasley won at
101 with an 80 bench and a 65
clean and jerk. Rachel Hinkle
easily won at 199 with a 140
bench and 100 clean and jerk.
Toni Christiani was best at
unlimited with a 140 bench
and 145 clean and jerk.
Stephanie Watson was
second at 139 with a 125-100
-225.
Venice fourth-place finish-
es were notched by Vicky
Vittori at 154 pounds, Dani
McCoy at 205 pounds and
Ashley Parker at 183 pounds.
The next meet for the
Venice girls lifters is the sub-
qualifier Jan. 11 at Port
Charlotte High. There is a
home dual meet at 4 p.m.
Jan. 19 against Manatee. The
final qualifier is Jan. 27 at
Booker. The State Meet is Feb.
11 at Santa Fe Community
College in Gainesville.
Venice has a record of 4-1
in dual meets. Tessier had 11
freshmen and nine sopho-
mores on the team this sea-
son.

Lady Indians team up to down Port


BY GARY BROWN
STAFF WRITER

Team play usually over-
comes.individual brilliance,
and the Port Charlotte-Venice
girls basketball game Wed-
nesday night was a perfect
example.
Venice won the Class 5A-
District 12 game 59-48 to
overshadow Pirates point
guard Sara Barton's out-
standing effort.
Barton scored 27 points,
brought the ball up court
against the press and stole
the ball four times. But the
Indians had nine players
make the scoring column to
seven for the Pirates.
Venice's Kaylee Ream
scored 15 points, and her
teammate Samantha Worth-
ington added 12. Both play-
ers got hot in the second
half when Venice pulled
away for the victory.
The win avenged an early
season loss to the Lady
Pirates in Venice.
"We let up a little on
defense," Port Charlotte
coach Stephanie Taylor said.
'And we did a horrible job


rebounding."
Port Charlotte (3-6 in dis-
trict action and 5-9 overall)
also was missing five players
due to illness or being away
because of the holidays
(school doesn't resume un-
til next week in Charlotte
County).
"But that's no excuse,"
Taylor said. "You have to
play with who you have."
Venice improved to 10-7
overall and 5-4 in district
play.
Port Charlotte led 13-11
at the first-quarter break,
but the Indians outscored
the Pirates 14-9 in the
second period for a 25-22
advantage at halftime.
Venice opened the third
quarter, with Worthington
, canning five field goals to
help give the Indians (5-4 in
district play and 9-7 overall)
a 47-31 lead at the quarter
break.
"We gave them the game
in the third quarter," Taylor
said.
Barton, who had scored
14 points in the first half,
was held to just two in the
third quarter. She broke


loose for 11 points in the final
quarter, but no other Pirate
player scored more than
three points in; that period.
Tayler Lacerenza scored nine
points for the Pirates in the
game, but no other Port
Charlotte player scored more
than four points.
Venice is at home Friday
night against Lakewood
Ranch. The Lady Mustangs

Venice High's girls volleyball coach Brian Wheatley speaks at
Thursday's Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club Luncheon to honor
the VHS girl's team 2005 FHSAA State Championship title.


Thursday was officially
"Lady Indian Day" in Venice.
Mayor Dean Calamaras
declared it so in a proclama-
tion read at a combined Ven-
ice-Nokomis Rotary/Sertoma
luncheon in a packed Grace
United Methodist Church
gymnasium.
Both the Rotary and Ser-
toma clubs teamed up to
honor the Venice High vol-
leyball team for winning a
FHSAA Class 5A state cham-
pionship this past November.
All of the players were pre-
sent. So were parents, friends,
school officials, club mem-
bers, community leaders and
the curious. All told, more
than 300 people ate lunched
catered by Buffalo Bill's and
listened to coach Brian
Wheatley talk about how
special the state champi-
onship team was.


He introduced each of the
players Dana Dumas,
Nickie Halbert, Natalie Gau-
dreau, Casey Taylor, Michaela
Trimble, DanielleWitte, Marla
Cooke, Ashley Graf, Julie
Howlett, Casie Richards, Leah
Bodi and Amanda Garofalo.
Wheatley talked about the
2004 team making it to the
state finals and losing. Venice
lost seven seniors from that
team.
"This year we had a lot of
talented youngsters who had
never tested the waters," 'he
said,
The beginning of the sea-
son, the seas were rough.
"We. had five people row-
ing one way and five the
other way we were rowing
in circles," Wheatley said.
"We all needed to be rowing
in the right direction. Some
of the girls brought in an oar.
They all signed it. This was a
sign that they were buying
into what we were trying to

The Lady Indians accom-
plished the latter.
The players each received
posters, and gift certificates


from local businesses.

appreciate and respond
ardently to a gift of this nat-

how alluring is a vacuum

I wonder if he would like to

after my aunt requested
a little convertible and

Speaking of guns, I
recall the epidemic of
cap guns and shoot-outs

the best a boy could do
was to have a light

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
ne%% 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 lowv pay ment. your balance will not drop, and it does not 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 eter build by paying
principle. You don't need to pay principle, save your money: Your cash equity vOill 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
gro wth. If \ou ha\e 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.

Acne drug linked


to teen suicides


p
>1


SUZY COHEN, R.PH.
COLUMNIST


Q: My teenage son has acne
and I just picked up his
Accutane isotretinoinn) from the
pharmacy. I've been reading on
the Internet about it and now
I'm worried about starting him
on it. His skin isn't that bad. Can
it really cause suicide? K.S,
Tulsa, Okla.
A: Possibly, but so many
factors contribute to suicide,
you can't exclusively blame a
drug in every case. Still, the
devastation to families affect-
ed by.this medication is so
horrific that it makes acne
look beautiful.
Some drugs can cause
psychosis, as evidenced by
seeing or hearing things that
aren't really there, behaving
strangely and experiencing
paranoia or delusional think-
ing.
Accutane and its generic,
isotretinoin, can alter mood,
and the manufacturer,
Roche, openly shares this
information. Other brand
names include Amnesteem,
Claravis and Sotret. These
drugs, synthetic derivatives
of itanmin A. can negatively
impact brain chemicals suchir.
as dopamine and serotonin.
An Accutane package insert
warns of: "depression, psy-
chosis and rarely, suicidal
ideation, suicide attempts
.and suicide."
Statistics show that
between 1989 and 2003,
there were 216 reported
drug-linked suicides among
U.S. teens younger than 18.
Of these, 72 suicides were
linked to Accutane
isotretinoinn). The next high-
est number of suicides in
that time period 55-
involved Prozac (fluoxetine).
The FDAWeb site warns:
'All patients treated with
isotretinoin should be
observed closely for symp-
toms of depression or suici-

Psychiatric side effects tied
to vitamin A are nothing new.
As early as 1856, the Arctic
explorer Elisha Kane noted
psychiatric symptoms in
.men who ate polar bear liver,
later found to contain large
amounts of vitamin A. In the
last 150 years, case reports of
psychosis, schizophrenia and
suicide associated with too
much vitamin A and vitamin
A-derived pharmaceutical
drugs have increased sub-
stantially.
It's not my intention to
scare parents across the
country or to irritate any of
the makers. Believe me, they
want consumers to stay safe
on their medication. Plenty
has been written on this sub-

have a responsibility to share
drug information and side
effects. Parents deserve to

isotretinoin (and all drugs)
because their children's lives
may depend on how well
they are informed. Parents
naturally watch for behav-
ioral changes in their teens,
but on isotretinoin therapy,
they should watch particular-
ly for signs of withdrawal or
depression.
SIsotretinoin is supposed to
be reserved for very bad
acne. Attractive skin can be
achieved with facials, nutri-
ents and safer pharmaceuti-
cal treatments. Even ifyour
child is off isotretinoin, keep
watching him closely
because adverse effects may
occur several months after
discontinuation. Remember,
stopping a drug that alters
brain chemicals does not
mean that the brain chemi-
cals magically become bal-
anced again.
Last warning: Isotretinoin-
type drugs cause birth
defects and are not often pre-
scribed for sexually active
women of childbearing age.
No one should ever share
this medication with friends.

January is National Blood Donor Month


STAFF REPORT

January is a perfect time to
start thinking of others for 2006.
In fact, it's never too early to
start, and a new year. offers the
chance to put helping others
first as a resolution priority.
Since 1970, January has
been recognized as National
Blood Donor Month
(NBDM). To help ensure an
adequate blood supply,
Suncoast Communities
Blood Bank has joined viith
AABB (known as the
American Association of
Blood Banks) to stress the
importance of donating
blood. January is one of the
most critical months for the
blood bank because of a
decline in donations due to
seasonal illness, busyness, or
apathy. The Blood Bank relies
on volunteers to do some-
thing great for others offer
help and possibly hope to
many people who rely on
blood for survival. Donating
blood could possibly be the
greatest act of community
service a person can offer.
Suncoast Communities
Blood Bank strongly encour-
ages the community to visit a
bloodmobile or a main loca-
tion in January to help keep


the blood supply adequate
during this critical time.
According to Dr. Mark J.
Magenheim, C.E.O. and med-
ical director of the Suncoast
Communities Blood Bank
based in Sarasota, the need
for blood is constant, and vol-
unteer blood donors con-
tribute to nearly all the blood
used for patient care in the
United States.
"If all who are eligible to
donate would do so on a reg-
ular basis (three to four times
per year), blood needs could
be met and shortages could
become a thing of the past,"
he said. "More than 90 per-
cent of blood collected in our
communities is used locally,
and we each needto be aware ,
of this. We are in fact walking
blood banks for each other
each and every day."
Blood is used every day
Open-heart surgery can
require 6-8 units (like "pints")
of whole red blood cells
Hip-replacement surgery
can require 8 units of red
blood cells (that last only 42
* days)
Cancer patients can require
up to 8 units of platelets per
week. (Platelets only only 5-7
days and are essential for


blood clotting).
* Automobile accidents can
require up to 50 units
("pints") of red blood cells
* Trauma accidents/burns
often require 6 unitsor more
of red blood cells or plasma
* Leukemia patients require
100 units of platelet
Facts
* Every two seconds someone
in the United States needs
blood.
* More than 38,000 blood
donations are needed each
day.
* Blood can be separated into
at least three components:
red blood cells, plasma and
platelets.
* Just 1 blood donation can
help save up to three lives.
* Sixty percent of the U.S.
population is eligible to give,
but only 5 percent of those
eligible actually donate.
* Blood and blood products
are perishable. Donated red
blood cells must be used
within 42 days of collection.
* During an emergency, blood
must be on the shelf ready for
transfusion in order to save
lives.
.Blood donation
* To donate blood, a person


must be at least 17 years of
age, weigh at least 110
pounds and be in generally;
good health. People with car-
diac conditions or diabetes
may still be eligible to donate.
SDonating blood is a safe,
process. A sterile needle is
used only once for each,
donor and is then discarded.
* The actual blood donation
typically takes less than 10-12
minutes. The entire process,
from the time a person arrives
to the time of leaving, takes:
about an hour.
*A healthy donor may donate
blood every 56 days.
* The average adult has about
10-12 pints of blood in his or
her body. Approximately 1
pint is given during a dona-
tion.
Suncoast Communities
Blood Bank is a 501(c)(3) not-
for-profit organization that
has served hospitals in
Sarasota, Charlotte and
DeSoto Counties for more
than 56 years, as well as sup-
plying the Bayflite Medical
Helicopter for critical trans-
port of trauma patients.

SOME SOBERING FACTS
* Most adults brush their teeth only once a day.
* Only about 1 out of 8 adults floss regularly. Almost every household
owns a dispenser of dental floss, however, it's usually in a forgotten
corner of the medicine cabinet.
* Most adults do little, if anything, to maintain oral hygiene throughout
the day, especially after meals or snacks.
* Putting off that routine-visit to the dentist has become a habit.
Today, dentists don't have to extract many teeth because they are
"rotten" (an old expression for'cavity-riddled, destroyed teeth).
However, control of tooth decay doesn't mean that everyone can look
forward to golden years with a full set of healthy teeth. Most adult teeth
are extracted today because of gum disease.
It is estimated that there are 30 million toothless Americans. This
number increases every year. Many more are partially toothless,
primarily due to gum disease not cavities.

Sure solutions


for the uninsured


STAFF REPORT

A community meeting will
be held to discuss solutions to
the growing number of unin-
sured families in Sarasota and
Charlotte counties.
This is the second in a
series of meetings among
community leaders and resi-
dents. Action plans will be
developed to improve health
care coverage for uninsured
children and families.
Tuesday, Jan. 10; 3:30-5 p.m.,
Nokomis Community Center,
234 East Nippino Trail.
Nokomis Community
Center is located in Nokomis
Community Park, south of
Dona Bay. Please park in the
front or on the west side of the
building. An estimated 45,000
residents of Sarasota County
and 21,000 residents of
Charlotte County are unin-
sured.
According to national
research, 80 percent of the
uninsured are from working
families; 77 percent hold full-
time jobs; and 49 percent are
self-employed or work for
small businesses. The loss of
employer-sponsored insur-
ance is the greatest factor in
the growing number of unin-
sured persons.


Economically, the lack of
insurance significantly
reduces both productivity
and earnings among workers,
and medical debt is now the
cause of nearly 50 percent of
all bankruptcies in the United
States. The Community
Alliance of Sarasota County,
led by the Committee on
Uninsured Children, and the
Community Health Improve-
ment Partnership (CHIP)
came together to create a
forum.to increase dialogue on
solutions to help the unin-
sured. This is the second
meeting to discuss solution
building in Sarasota County
and the region.
The Community Health
Improvement Partnership
(CHIP), which is composed of
local health departments,
hospitals, nonprofit organiza-
tions and funding organiza-
tions is the coordinating enti-
ty.
Three community groups,
called Community Health
Action Teams (CHATs) in
Englewood, North Port and
the Laurel/Osprey/Venice/
Nokomis (LOVN) areas meet
monthly to implement action
plans to promote health and
wellbeing among residents in
those communities.

RELIGION COLUMNIST

Sometimes a book crosses
your path with a message so
inspiring and universal that
you want to shout its praises.
Or at least recommend it to
those you know.
The book, actually written
for children, is called
"Jerusalem Sky: Stars, Crosses
and Crescents." I bought it for
our grandchildren, but once I
opened it up I knew that it
had meaning for all ages.
In simple, poetic text and
paintings that glow like pre-
cious gems it tells the story of
a city battered and belea-
guered through the centuries
by armies of various faiths,
each claiming it as its spiritu-
al home a claim in one
sense true, as Jerusalem has a
commonality to all three
monotheistic religions.

book tells us, "the Jerus

years while King Solo

Jerusalem sky, the Bible
us a rising star announce

served as a project in

to bring students from
Muslim, Jewish and Catholic
schools together to teach
them about tolerance and
., respect for each other's reli-
gion. The students were each
given a copy of the book and
asked to use it as a stepping
stone to creating artwork
depicting the book's premise.

s, like stars twinkling in the
ng heavens. A peace so tantaliz-
ingly close yet in essence far
enough removed to escape
our grasp.
salem One student wrote about
seven her portrait of a golden-
omon domed synagogue: "I did this
ithe because it reminded me of a
e tells dream I once had where there
edthe was a door, and behind the
h the door the whole world was at
lamic peace. I hope that everyone
named together can open that door
someday."
losses As we open the door to a
)gues, .New Year, we can only hope
reach that in Israel as well as in Iraq


and wherever the results of
hatred and violence have led
to bloodshed and more
bloodshed, there can at least
be a peaceful coexistence: .
What better way than to
start with .children. The
Brooklyn borough president
read the book aloud to the
students donning in succes-
sion a yarmulke, a cleric's col-
lar and Muslim prayer cap. He
finished by saying, "however
we pray, whatever religion we
say is ours, there is only one
God."
A God of peace, a God to
whom our hopes can be
directed, a God whose pres-
ence seems to reach out to us
as we read these mystical
words from "Jerusalem Sky"
and pray for peace.
"With wonders and mira-
cles, the sky over Jerusalem
touches the world below.
Legend says the Jerusalem
sky had a hole in it, made by a
jewel that fell from God's
throne. Through this hole
hopes reach heaven."
Shalom.

FRIDAY, JAN. 6,2006


Welcoming 2006


Church of the Redeemer participates in

church tour for All Faiths Food Bank


STAFF REPORT


The Sarasota Alliance for
Historic Preservation is con-
ducting its first-ever Sarasota
Historic Church Tour on
Saturday, Jan. 7, which will
include a tour of the Episcopal
Church of the Redeemer in
downtown Sarasota. Church
members Carl Stockton and
George Bloodworth will be on
hand as docents to share stories
with visitors about the history
and lore associated with the
church.
The tour runs 11 a.m.-4
p.m., and the Church of the
Redeemer may be visited at
any point during those hours.
Tickets are $15 and may be
purchased the day of the tour
at the front of the church.
Fifty percent of the net pro-
ceeds will be donated to the
All Faiths Food Bank.
The Church ofthe Redeemer


is steeped in the history of
Sarasota, dating back to the
1880s and the early days of the
settlement in this area, and has
grown along with the city itself.
In fact, the first mayor of
Sarasota and founder of the first
golf course and public library,
Colonel J. Hamilton Gillespie,
was also one of the early
founders of the Church of the
Redeemer.
There are many significant
points to enjoy during the tour
of the Church of the Redeemer,
ranging from thej!Presidential
Pew" where President and Mrs.
Gerald Ford sat when they
attended services in 1976, to the
spectacular Nichols and
Simpson Pipe Organ installed in
2003, to the colorful and sym-
bolic 16 stained glass windows,
as well as the High Altar that has
been in use at the church since
1939. Also of interest are color-
ful Christian symbols in hand-


made needlepoint on kneelers
throughout the church.
Outside, there is just as
much to see (and hear) begin-
ning with the Bell Tower a
landmark 65 foot tower that
houses five bronze German
bells brought to the church in
1967. The Bell Tower looks out
across to the bay front while
standing guard over a magnif-
icent mosaic of the Anglican
Compass Rose, and a lovely
walkway that meanders
through wrought-iron gates,
the St. Francis Memorial
Garden, butterfly and rose
gardens, and the veranda and
lawns of the church grounds.
Church of the Redeemer
has been at the corner of
Ringling Boulevard and Palm
Avenue since 1950 and was
constructed, in part, from
performance proceeds
donated by the Ringling
Brothers Circus.

ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST


The holidays are over and
our Venice community orga-
nizations and businesses are
prepared for the season.
For me, I am knee deep in
last-minute preparations for
the SixthAnnual SouthVenice
Beach Expo that will be held a
week from tomorrow,
Saturday, Jan. 14, 9 a.m.-3
p.m.
I really enjoy putting this
show together. All the spon-
sors and exhibitors are con-
firmed; again we will have a
full house.
The promotions running
in the Venice Gondolier Sun
have been effective (a round
of applause, please). Next
Wednesday it will print a full-
page program listing all the
exhibitors, their businesses
and services, and their many
drawings and prizes. (The
new Galleria Theater is going
to give out advance movie.
tickets.)
People who attend this
winter expo come to enjoy
themselves. The pace is very


relaxed: no high-pressure
sales, just good conversations
with the vendors.
This year we are setting up
tables and chairs where the
folks can enjoy lunch at the
Publix food court and go back
for more visiting with the
exhibitors.
The South Venice Civic
Association will be handing
out free one-day ferry passes
and general information
about the community, and
you have the opportunity to
purchase ferry passes or
memberships. You also may
purchase the trees, shrubs
and flowers that decorate the
hall, provided by MRT Lawn
& Garden Center.
Before I forget, I want to
recognize Cheryl Ziemke, a
professional photographer,
who gives of her time every
year to photograph our show.
If you are looking for that ser-
vice, call her at 493-4733.
In fact Cheryl will soon be
taking a new portrait of me
for this column. About time,
Ellen.
What does living in par-
adise look like? Come on
down to the 'South Venice
Community Center,' 720
Alligator Drive, on the 14th
and we'll show you.

SUN PHOTO BY DANA CLAUSING
Commercial fisherman Neal Beach, captain of the Charlotte shrimp boat Mystic, weighs some
shrimp for customers Friday morning at the Riviera Marina. The boat also docks at Fishermen's
Village during the week to offer fresh catches.


Hardships don't stop local shrimpers


High fuel'costs, low
prices can't keep the
die-hards from follow-
ing what has become a
way of life.

BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

Capt. Neal Beach, owner
and operator of the shrimp
trawler "Mystic," allows him-
self only two excuses to take a
day off during shrimp season:
"Bad weather and Christ-
mas."
"People eat shrimp every-
day, so we go out every night
to catch it," he said Friday
after selling off his catch
along the west side dock at
the village.
But Beach has another rea-
son for working seven days a

poniira'ised shrimp no
Ihfailand, Vietiiam, Ecuador,
China and other countries
have been rising rapidly over
the past five years. That has
driven down the wholesale
price of seafood.
A pound of shrimp now
sells on the wholesale market
for only 85 cents, Beach said.
Beach is among several
Charlotte Harbor's shrimpers
who sell their harvest fresh off
the backs of their boats to
individuals at retail prices.
About a half-dozen
trawlers sell shrimp from
their boats -at the Riviera
Marina on Deltona Drive just
south of Punta Gorda. Others,
including the "Mystic," sell
their shrimp along the dock
on the west side of
Fishermen's Village.
Area seafood markets also
sell fish, crab and shrimp
from local waters, including
Law's Seafood on Deltona
Drive and Peace River
Produce & Seafood on U.S.
17.
"We're an endangered
species because Americans
aren't supporting their fisher-
men," Beach said.

Peewiees and jumb6s -
As he talked, Beach
poured half of a jar of Creole
seasoning, a quarter jar of
Old Bay seasoning and
about a half cup of salt into a
3-gallon pot he'd set on a gas
burner on the deck of his
boat.
The pot contained a batch
of "peewee shrimp." Those
are the shrimp typically con-
sidered too small to sell.
They're just the right size
for gumbo or for the trawler's
crew to nibble on, he said.
The "Mystic" sells what
Beach calls "boat run"
shrimp, which is a mix of
medium and large shrimp.
Occasionally, the crew gets
lucky and finds a hole loaded
with "jumbo".shrimp, which
weigh an ounce each.
Shrimpers don't know why
the big ones are only occa-
sionally caught in the harbor.
"Some say they just 'mud
up' .and bury themselves,"
said Beach. "But I don't think
fishermen really know where
they go."
In the hole /
Beach and his crew typi-


cally set out for a night of
shrimping at about 2 p.m.
They drag their nets along the
bottom. They favor the deep-
er areas of the harbor, known
as "holes." That's where most
of the shrimp are found.
The nets are equipped
with turtle and fish excluders,
devices that allow those
species to escape.
The nets routinely scoop
up a "bycatch" of blue crab,
flounder and whiting, which
can also be sold. By law, up to
10 percent of a shrimper's
catch can be bycatch.
Beach said he lets one crew
member drive the boat from
time to time. That allows him
to catch a nap.
Although the revenues
from a night's catch can
appear lucrative, mainte-
nance and repairs can eat up
the profits.
"It's sort of like a break-
even situation," Beach said.
Going, going...
Beach has been making a
full-time livelihood commer-
cial fishing for 16 years and
has no intention of giving it
up.
"I shrimped my first boat
when I was 13 years old in
Biloxi," Beach said. "It's just
peaceful on the water. I guess
that's why I do it."
"They just don't want us
fishing anymore," said Chief
Lowe, 64, a retired Charlotte
Harbor shrimper. He cited
economic conditions and
excessive regulations faced by
net fishermen.
Charlotte Harbor mullet
fisherman Gene Santini, a
fifth-generation commercial
fisherman, said the state
adopts new regulations each
year geared to make it more
difficult for people like him to
earn a living.
In 1994, Florida voters
banned gill nets bigger than
5OO'quare'feet." '"
' Lst year, the Fionra Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission limited the size
of the mesh in lawful nets to a
size too small to catch adult
mullet by the gills.
The commission's rule
prohibits a mesh bigger than
2 inches. Mullet fishermen
say a 4.5-inch mesh size is
needed.
This year, the commission
adopted a rule effectively lim-
iting the amount of folds per
yard of net, making it even
harder to ensnare the fish,
Santini said.
"It ain't going very good at
all," he said. "You catch a
handful."
Most mullet fishermen
have taken up "second jobs"
to support themselves and
their families, he said. Santini,
for example, works as an elec-
trician.
A decade ago, Charlotte
Harbor supported about 40
full-time fishermen, Santini
said.
Now, Santini counts 12.
"Eventually, this (occupa-
tion) is going to be gone," he
said.

Circus Sarasota opens its box office on Saturday


Saturday, Jan. 7, is just not
any other day. It's the day
when the box office of Circus
Sarasota opens for the 2006
season. Tickets go on sale for
the Circus Sarasota February
production of Life Is A Cir-
cus, with spectacular acts
from around the globe and
popular Sarasota radio (1220
AM, WIBQ) personality Cliff
Roles as the Ringmaster.
Jan. 7 also is Family Fun
Day. To celebrate the box
office opening, from 11 a.m.
to.3 p.m., children and their
parents will be greeted by
the wild and wacky antics of
the troupe of Circus Sarasota
clowns. Pony' rides, face-
painting, circus tricks and
games and much more will
be available at the site of the
Big Top on Tittle Avenue, just
south ofFruitville Road.
Join .the fun and pick up
your tickets for any one of
the fabulous performances
of Life Is A Circus, that is
being presented eight times a
week Feb. 3-26. Headlining
the show is premier aerialist-


Dolly Jacobs, and The Flying
Wallendas in a recreation of
their famous seven-man pyr-
amid on the high wire. Other
international circus stars are
also featured in an extraordi-
nary display of athleticism,
drama and excitement.
The seven-man pyramid is
one of the most famous acts
ever to be performed in any
circus. In 1962 in Detroit, two
of the Wallenda family were
killed and. another injured
when the famous pyramid
collapsed during an after-
noon performance. The pyr-
amid was recreated for the
film, "The Great Wallendas"
and then rarely seen until
three years ago when it was
performed nightly for the
entire month-long run of
Circus Sarasota. Circus owner
and founder Pedro, Reis told
me recently that this season's
shows. may offer the last
chance to see this incredible
stunt as family members of
the legendary troupe move
on.
I plan to go to several per-
formances. In addition to the
famous Wallenda pyramid,
Circus Sarasota co-founder
Dolly Jacobs will return to
perform her aerial artistry.
A few years ago, while watch-
ing her in rehearsal for a
performance of Ca d'Zan the
Ballet, which was performed
in conjunction with the
Sarasota Ballet of Florida, I
became so mesmerized by
her talent, I totally forgot
that as a reporter I had been
given permission to take take

every ticket sold to an art
center in need in New Or-
leans to help them rebuild."

band, The, Troublestarters,

p.m. Their hearty blend of
blues and jazz will satisfy
everybody's musical taste.
There will be a fantastic sil-
ent auction full of incredible
artwork, gift.baskets, jewelry,
pottery, vacations, event tick-
ets, fishing trips and restau-
rant gift certificates. There will
be door prizes galore, a 50/50
raffle and this year's mascot,
The Flying Pig, will be raffled
off sometime during the
night.
Tickets go 'on sale at the
Englewood Art Center Mon-
day, Jan. 9. There are a lim-
ited number of tickets avail-
able. The price for this year's


, celebration is -$50, which

ment, dinner and dancing,

'The Matador'


BYCHRISTY LEMIRE
GUEST WRITER


Pierce Brosnan stars as a
cynical, washed-up, irre-
sistible cad of a hit man in
"The Matador."
It's the kind of role you'd
expect to see Billy Bob
Thornton play, or Jack
Nicholson if the movie had
come out 20 years ago. We
know Brosnan's Julian
Noble is devilish from the
ifisp Aipe. wA Wgggigrim Wi-Thi
'tattoos and a badmfnustache,
waking up in a hotel bed
with an empty bottle of
Maker's Mark on the night-
stand on one side and a
naked woman lying next to
him on the other.
You could call Julian No-
ble the anti-James Bond -
even more so than the part
Brosnan played in "The
Tailor of Panama," which
was considered the anti-
Bond when that film came


Bloodrayne
In eighteenth century Romania,
Rayne, a dhampir (half-human, half-
vampire), prone to fits of blind blood
rage but saddled with a compunction
for humans, strives to avenge her
mother's rape by her father, Kagan,
King of Varimpires. Two vampire
hunters, Sebastian and Vladimir, from
the Brimstone Society persuade her
to join their cause.

is even more twisted and

wears it as comfortably as
one of 007's custom-made
tuxedos.
And in "The Matador,"
writer-director Richard
Shepard has crafted for
Brosnan and Greg Kinnear a
breezy, stylish, darkly funny
thriller that transcends the

Good Night and
Good Luck
"Good Night, And Good Luck" takes
place during the early days of broad-
cast jouralism in 1950's America. It
chronicles the real-life conflict
between television newsman Edward
R. Murrow and Senator Joseph
McCarthy and the House Un-
American Activities Committee. With a
desire to report the facts and enlight-
en the public, Murrow, and his dedi-
cated staff- headed by his producer
Fred Friendly and Joe Wershba in the
CBS newsroom defy corporate and
sponsorship pressures to examine the


Danny's been celebrating
the deal he thinks he closed
earlier in the day and
they forge an unlikely con-
nection.
Of course they're total
opposites, a fundamental
element of this kind of film.
Danny sees Julian as dan-
gerous and exciting and
finds himself unexpectedly
fascinated by his globe-trot-
ting lifestyle; Julian sees
allure in the stability and
ilormlcy o.Danny's subur-
ban existence, complete
with a loving wife who's
waiting for him at home
(Hope Davis, naturally
smart and funny as always).
We know from the outset
that these two disparate
creatures will change each
others' lives, but in Shepard's
film, the journey is the
destination. Seemingly in a
nod to Brosnan's days of
Bond-style worldwide in-
trigue, the journey hops


lies and scaremongering tactics per-
petrated by McCarthy during his com-
munist'witch-hunts. A very public
feud develops when the Senator
responds by accusing the anchor of
being a communist In this climate of
fear and reprisal, the CBS crew car-
ries on and their tenacity will prove
historic and monumental.

King Kong
A crew of explorers and filmmak-
ers set out to investigate the
myths of the legendary creature
King Kong. Traveling to Skull
Island, they discover a land unaf-


from Mexico City to Vienna,
Moscow, Budapest and back
to Denver.
"You a spy, something
like that?" Danny asks early
in the film, another clever
acknowledgment of Bros-
nan's best-known screen
role, as he and Julian puff on
cigars at a bullfight.
Julian reveals reluctantly
that he's an assassin, but
prefers to think of himself
as a "facilitator of fatalities."
SShepard spells things p.u1t
a bit too obviously toward
the end, and he relies a little
too heavily on the matador-
assassin analogy. But these
are minor quibbles about a
film that, for the most part,
takes aim at its target and
nails it dead-on.
"The Matador," a Wein-
stein Co. release, is rated R
for strong sexual content
and language. Running
time: 97 minutes. Three
stars out of four.

ARIES (March 21-April
19). Lessons have to
do with recognizing
your authentic self and your
unique attributes. It's really not
hard to tell the difference
between what's yours and
what you're taking on for
someone else. Dare to shed a
false identity.

TAURUS (April 20-
May 20). The good
part is, your imagina-
tion is incredibly active! Keep a
vigilant focus on positive
thoughts or fear will creep in.
After all, being in a state of
chronic readiness for escape or
battle is no fun, and it's not
productive, either.

< GEMINI (May 21-June
21). Your inner dia-
logue becomes
increasingly turbulent unless
you take measures to counter-
act the noise. External.silence
will help you hush your inner
chatter. Carve out 10 minutes
to sit quietly and simply be.

CANCER (June 22-July
22). There's no need.
to risk an adventure
alone. At least three people
you know are willing to go
with you, and at least one
among them has pursued the
endeavor before and would
serve as a guide if asked.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
Some treasures are
Hidden underground,
but most are found in the
pages of a book, the words of a
friend, the embrace of a loved
one ... The list goes on. Today

is filled with such gold and
jewels.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22). You'll achieve
beyond the so-called
normal range of achievement
something to be proud of,
but, of course, you expect it
from yourself. Celebrate the-,
small victories. They are more
significant than you realize.

finally agreed to marry her
boyfriend Jeff (Mark Ruffalo), but
isn't at all sure that marriage is
what she really wants ... in fact,
she's not sure what she wants in

life isn't much better an aspiring
journalist, Sarah's career has
stalled at the New York Times obit-
uary column.To top it all off, she's
on her way .home to attend her sis-
ter's wedding, which means spend-
ing a lot of time with her tennis-

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

to avoid it. It's an ideal day to
face what you perceive will
be unpleasant. By doing,
so it somehow becomes less

lot of different kinds of advice,
but it all boils down to the
same thing: Fish or cut bait.
Right now, in order to win
your prize, you may have
to let it go.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). You're
happy, relaxed and
having so much fun! Seeing
you this way could hit your
ex (boss, love or friend)
like a bucket of cold water
- they don't know you
quite as well as they thought
they did.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18). Your search
for love yields results.
If you are honest, you'll
see that those results are
somehow equal and opposite
of what you are putting
out. Know your purpose,
and you'll attract the
same.

.:.; PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20). Impatience
S is your enemy. It
compels you to take action
out of fear, which causes
mistakes. Take the time to
.get it right and you won' ,
wastethe time it takes to
-do over.

The Squid and
the Whale
Noah Baumbach's new film is an
excruciatingly humane, often hilari-
ous portrait of a disintegrating
family in mid-1980s Brooklyn. Set
in the stately, yet off-kilter, neigh-
borhood of Park Slope, the film
tells the story of the Berkmans, a
quintessentially New York family
struggling to keep it together.
Family patriarch Bernard (Jeff
Daniels) is a published author and
writing teacher whose insecurity
over his own lack of recognition-
continues to plague him.
Meanwhile, his wife Joan (Laura
Linney) is grappling 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 unravel-
ing situation head on.

Walk the Line
Joaquin Phoneix stars as the
legendary Johnny Cash in this
biopic about the musician's early
days. Reese Witherspoon co-stars
as the love of his life, June Carter.
From picking cotton, selling door to
door, serving in the Air Force, and
becoming the original rebel rocker,
it's a colorful portrait of a man who
impacted rock and roll forever.
