A pain in the

Venice Little League's Chuck Reiter fields need
attention ... fast.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Brrr... it's chilly outside.
Hardly the kind of weather
that makes one think of base-
ball, but the Venice Little
League has the wheels well
set in motion for the 2006 sea-
son.
A successful registration of


players took place Saturday in
the offices of the Gondolier
Sun. Tryouts will be held over
the next two weekends. Then
comes the draft. Practice
starts Feb. 1 and games begin
March 1.
While everyone's getting
ready, league officials are
afraid their fields at the Chuck
Reiter Complex will not be.


Neglect and overuse have
left the four fields at Reiter in
sad shape. There are bare
spots in both the infields and
outfields. The dirt areas are
chewed up like someone
came through with a roto-
tiller. Many officials believe it
will take a miracle to have
them ready by opening day.
The problems started last
summer and were allowed to
linger throughout the fall,

County investigates city annexation


Venice plans first reading of annexation that
could be challenged by Sarasota County because
of possible prior annexation law violations.

Pinebrook roads.
Being reviewed is whether
enough of Villa Lago touched
city limits, and if the city
properly advertised the an-
nexation hearings.
The outside review of city
actions has the potential to
strain already tense relations
between the county and city,
even though both sides claim
this is not creating a divide for
joint planning and coopera-
tion.
"My New Year's resolution
is to try to build bridges and
positive relationships with
our cities in the county,"
County Commissioner Shan-
non Staub said. "I am hopeful
that this year will show joint
cooperation on many issues.
"I don't think we have a
growing rift between the city
and county, just a lack of
communication and under-
standing of each of our needs
and plans that we need to
work on."

THIS WEEK IN VENICE HISTORY

Councilman who resigned

may seek office

From the Jan. 4, 1999, Venice Gondolier Sun.


DOUGLAS A. BOLDUC
STAFF WRITER

Less than three months
after his arrest and just weeks
after a program aimed at re-
moving a felony from his re-
cord began, Earl Midlam has
expressed interest in a politi-
cal comeback.
The former three-term
Venice City Council member
resigned Aug. 19, 1998, after
being arrested and charged
with intercepting an oral
communication.
Venice City Clerk Lori
Stelzer said Midlam inquired
about running before and
after the November 1998 elec-
don. In one phone.conversa-


tion, Midlam asked when he
could pick up an election
'packet. Stelzer said if Midlam
wanted to open a candidate
bank account,,he could do so
now, but he would have to fill
out some papers with the
clerk's office.
When contacted by phone
this week to ask about his
intentions, Midlam respond-
ed by saying "no comment."
"I'm not aware of anything
in the charter that would pro-
hibit him from running,"
Stelzer said.
The only requirement in
the Venice City Charter is that
a candidate must be an elec-
tor of the city to run for office.

so dry that body hair becomes

GRASS from PagelA
according to VLL president
Dave Morse.
Trouble arose late in the
summer when the irrigation
system became faulty. Al-
though the initial problem
was fixed, the sprinklers were
down again in the fall. That
plus jess rain, the grass began
to die.
'i While the wheels of gov-
Sernment were turning slowly,
t the grass was dying," Morse
said. "They got the water sys-
tern working again, but then
they overfertilized it."
When Morse ,says "they,"
i< he refers to Sarasota County
Parks and Recreation, which
oversees upkeep of the city'-
f owned, county-maintained
complex. .
"Getting something done
is short of a miracle," said for-
mer league president Rich
Carroll, who now directs the
Challenger Division for hand-
icapped kids."City-owned,
county-maintained mean if
you ask five different people
whose responsible for some-
thing, you'll get five different
answers."
Veteran coach and board
member Terry Tritschler says
he keeps a list and calls the
county each month.
"We're getting no coopera-
tion at all," he said. "What do
we have to do to have our
facilities kept up?"
Not overjoyed with the
response of the county, Morse
: and other league honchos
contacted an independent
firm to assess what it would to
fix the fields.
Michael Jankowski of
Garden Master recommends
closing the fields down for 30
days. They'll need water every
day. They'll need to be cut
every 10 days. More fertilizer
will also be needed.
"He said it would cost $750
in fertilizer and that he would
donate his time for the
league," Morse said.
It sounded good to the
Little League folks.
"Then I get a phone call
from Ed Exner of the county,"
Morse' ,ahidV He d tila't
,bring in .outside people. He
F"aid that they've got a plan.
He said they'll be out to start
% working on it the first part of
e t theVence Gondolier S

i


the week"
"The county screwed up,
we get a guy who says he's
gonna help us for free, and
now the county's back
in,"Carroll said. "It's one hell
of a predicament All I know
is I can't get wheelchairs
around Field 2. There's mud
holes everywhere. I'm not try-
ing to fight anyone. Ijust want
our fields done."
The fields themselves are
not the only areas that need
work.
"In the dugouts, nails stick
a half-inch down," Carroll
said. "Kids hang their cups on
them. They're dangerous and
a kid could get cut."
The press box on Field 1 no
longer has a roof.
"The roof blew off in Hur-
ricane Wilma," Tritschler said.
"The county says it's the city's
responsible. The city says we
have to contact FEMA."
There are holes in the
backstop screens.
New paint could be used
all over. After all, Venice Lite
League will host district and
regional all-star tournament
action this coming summer.
Folks will be coming from as
far north as Bradenton and as
far south as Naples. To see
facilities resembling a shanty
town would be an embarrass-
ment to the league, city and
county.
The SLA
Morse, Carroll and Tritsch-
ler like to see all kids playing
sports. They wouldn't be
coaching Little League if that
weren't the case.
But they all agree that
overuse of the Chuck Reiter
fields has become a problem.
They weren't talking about
Little League games and prac-
tice, either.
Across the street from the
Chuck Reiter Complex is a
charter school called Student
Leadership Academy, or SLA.
The kids from SLA use the
Little League fields five days a
week for gym classes.
"They are using it for other
things than it was intended
for," Morse said. "There isn't
a whole lboV-ot6df Wahd'-'dar
from a Little League outfield-
er." .
Morse estimates more
than 300 kids will be playing
un Classifieds work for you

year.
"They (SLA) have 350 kids,")? .
he said. 'They're using the
fields more than we do. It's
their playground. They're
playing kickball and soccer. A
field can only take so much."
An answer?
The ultimate answer to
Venice Little League's prob-
lems would be to create a new
complex out east. The Chuck
Reiter Complex would be per-
fect for condos. They could -
trade land with the city or
county for a nice lot east of I-
75. Sort of like a Twin Lakes
Park South. No more parking
problems. No more traffic
hassles. More fields. Green
acres.
But for now, the league has
to make do with what it's got.
Hopefully, folks working
together will have the youth
of Venice winning in the end.

Sarasota endorses 1-mill


school tax extension


BY BOB ARDREN
PELICAN PRESS

The Sarasota City Com-
mission unanimously endors-
ed a four-year renewel of the
1-mill property tax extension,
for public schools Monday.
Coming in the form of a
resolution requested by Com-
missioner Ken .Shelin, the
endorsement said the exten-
sion would raise_ between
$215 million and $260 million
over four years if approv-
ed by the voters March 14.
Recognizing that Sarasota
County ranks fifth from the
bottom in Florida for per-
centage of administrators in
its school system, the city
commission declared the
benefits to Sarsota County
Schools would bb:
Extending the school day
by 30 minutes, thus adding
the equivalent of 15 days of
additional instruction each
school year
Preserving and increasing
teacher salaries
Expanding the use of
technology
Increasing the emphasis
on preparing students for


21st century work skills
Closing the achievement
gap between high and low
achieving students
Continuing programs in
art, music, athletics, advanc-
ed placement, International
Baccalaureate and other
extra-curricular activities
Keeping up with growth
and maintaining reasonable
class size
Although not in the city's
resolution, the school board
says other benefits will in-
clude creation of a new career-
technical high school with
two campuses, and contin-
uation of summer school
programs.
If passed by the voters on
March 14, the extension, of
the 1-mill tax will continue a
program first approved in
2002.
. Presently the state of Flor-
ida ranks fourth in student
population in the nation, but
42nd in per student spending
- only enough to provide a
mediocre education, accord-
ing to school board officials.
In addition, they add, state
spending has not kept up
with the cost of living.


For example, the state's
base student allocation to
Sarasota County schools in-
creased 7.4 percent over the
past five years, yet the Con-
sumer Price Index increased
9.7 percent.
Money raised by the 2002
referendum was used, in part,
to repair damage done by
earlier budget cuts. The first
two years after the passage of
the referendum the district
used the funds to reinstate or
maintain existing programs,
maintain reasonable class
sizes and prevent further cuts.
Then, in the third and
fourth years of the referen-
dum, the district hired addi-
tional teachers to reduce
class sizes, added guidance
and mental health profes-
si6nals and enhanced pro-
grams such as the arts, science
and drop-out prevention.
The Financial Oveisight
Commission, consisting of
community leaders and cre-
ated at the time of the initial
referendum, has reported the
Sarasota County School Dis-
trict used funding from the
initial referendum "exactly as
promised."

SARASOTA COUNTY GOVERNMENT MULTIPLE-VENDOR
OIL CHANGE PROGRAM

Sarasota County requests information regarding the interest level
of locally-operating oil/lube/filter facilities in participating in a
possible multiple-vendor oil change program.
Sarasota County's goal is to assess intere.; in anticipation' of
implementing a program by which users of County fleet vehicles
may take them to any one of many approved vendors for oil
change services. The proposed program would standardize service
across vendor lines by requiring participating facilities to conform
to a predetermined set of guidelines.
The County fleet is comprised of 500+ light vehicles, and consists
of approximately 90% trucks, vans and SUVs and 10% passenger
vehicles. The County is exploring the possibility of utilizing
private sector lube/oil/filter facilities to perform these preventive
maintenance services.
The following individual should be contacted for any additional
information:

Bay Indies avoids fines for not having permits


But the manufactured home park is now on
notice it risks $500-per-day fines if any more
homes are installed without city permits.


JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


City code enforcement
officers were out to get the
attention of Bay Indies mo-
bile home park.
They accomplished that
and more Thursday as the
Municipal Code Enforcement
Board heard 10 cases of
mobile homes being installed
without a permit. When code
officer John Patek first cited
the park, it hadn't even
applied for permits for six out
of the 10 homes.
Bay Indies was found
guilty on all 10 counts, but
avoided fines as long as per-
mit applications are submit-
ted by Jan. 19 and all are
picked up and paid for within
30 days of city approval.
By Thursday's code board
hearing, all but two of the
homes had permits.


Patek needed the guilty
verdict so immediate fines of
up to $500 per day can be
issued if Bay Indies violates
permit laws again. The con-
struction permits ensure that
new mobile homes are in-
stalled properly to meet hur-
ricane and other require-
ments.
"It's a serious situation,"
Patek said during the code
board meeting. "These units
are not tied down, and we
know how Florida is with
weather."
This has been a problem
before, but there have never
been this many homes lack-
ing installation permits at
once, according to Patek.
Bay Indies can be fined up
to $250 per day at each
address if it fails to obtain the
proper permits. Because of
the guilty verdicts, all new
instances of mobile homes


installed without a permit
can lead to $500 per day fines.
Bay Indies attorney Jody
Gabel admitted the homes
were delivered at Bay Indies
rental lots without approved
permits, and the company
will work to keep this from
happening again.
"The severity has been
realized by this community,"
Gabel told code board mem-
bers.
Bay Indies owns the land
and rents it to mobile home
owners, which makes the
company liable for all code
violations. Renters must work
through the Bay Indies con-
struction department to ob-
tain permits.
There are more than 1,200
mobile homes at Bay Indies,
according to the. company.
Bay Indies representatives
stated that all existing homes
have the proper permits, but
neither the company or city
has done a lot-by-lot review
to confirm that.
"We're making headway,"
Patek said. "We're confident


Bay Indies can be compliant
in the future."
Other code board news
Other cases heard by code
board members Thursday:
Too soft! A decision to
only issue a $75 fine for park-
ing cars on a home's front
yard at 1043 Hope St. prompt-
ed code board member
Robert Young to exclaim,
"We're going crazy with the
softness today.... It's ajoke, to
deal with this outrageous,
egregious blight like this. This
code board is getting too soft
for me." Young said this case
was a classic example of "a,
property's overuse" that leads
to blight in a neighborhood.
Several previous decisions to
waive fines, after a property
owner was found guilty, con-
tributed to Young's frustra-'
tion. Michael and Darlene
Jones, the owners, were found
in compliance on another
citation and a third case an
illegally parked double-axle
trailer was continued until
the next meeting.


Crest Apartments No
more fines were imposed
against Richard Neuensch-
wander, owner of the apart-
ments at 207 North Harbor
Drive, because a permit
application has been filed to
fix code violations. Code
board has already issued
$6,500 in fines against
Neuenschwander.
CVS Pharmacy The
sign at CVS Pharmacy, 100
North U.S. 41 Bypass, finally
meets permit restrictions
after being cited more than
three months ago. By a 4-2
vote, CVS avoided having to
pay any fines, with Young and
Code Board chairwoman
Diana Mier saying CVS
should be penalized for tak-
ing so long.
Eviction proceedings -
Code board members issued
another $6,800 worth of fines
against Joan Gearhart, owner
of the apartment building at
329 W Miami Ave., and have
started eviction proceedings
because it's been deemed an
unsafe building. Only


Gearhart and her son still live
there. City inspectors have
accused Gearhart of con-
struction without a permit
and failing to use a licensed
contractor. She has totaled
$12,300 in fines.
Foreclosures The city
may be moving forward on
foreclosure in two code viola-
tion cases in which neither
home has a homestead ex-
emption. The infamous dirty
pool at 562 Marsh Creek Road
is dirty again, after amassing
nearly $33,000 in fines a year
ago for going a year between
cleaning. The home, owned
by John Powell Project Man-
agement,' has been fined
$11,400 for this second
offense. A home at 113 La
Palma Court, owned by
Stewart Haag, has topped
$13,000 in fines for a radio
antenna that's taller than 35
feet, exceeding residential
zoning height limits.

The Legionnaires are still
working on getting a CO for
their new building at Auburn
Road and East Venice Avenue.
Wide latitude
Behrens said repercus-
sions for moving in without a
CO are, "at the discretion of
the building official and how
far he wants to pursue it."
He said those repercus-
sions could include:
having the occupants re-
moved.
termination of electrical
service.
disciplinary action
against the contractor.
Behrens said he likes to
exercise wide latitude in
determining whether to issue


a CO because the whole
process is so complex.
"Police, fire, public works,
engineering, utilities, they all
have to do their inspections,"
Behrens said. "Once they've
all signed off, we can issue a
CO."
Behrens said if it is a minor
issue that will not effect the
health and safety of the pub-
lic, he can issue a temporary
CO.
He said a temporary CO is
generally good for 30 days,
but can be extended to 60 or
90 days "or longer."
The former Elks building at
119 E. Venice Ave. was. 52
years old. Hutchinson said
maintenance alone cost al-
most $2,000 per month.

The new Venice Elks building with nobody in it Friday morn-
ing, after the city of Venice directed the organization to stop
using it. The city issued a temporary certificate of occupancy
later Friday.


The new building is about
11,000 square feet, larger than
the original building.


It is located near Interstate
75 and Knights Trail Road
northeast of Venice.


However, the children did'
not make any allegations
against Dropla and therapywas
recommended for the family.
On Dec. 12, the victim was
interviewed in Sarasota by a
forensic interviewer. The girl
was able to remember the 2003
trip to Florida with her brother
to visit Dropla and his girl-
friend.
The child said she and
Dropla kissed and that the kiss-
es were tongue to tongue.
Deviant history
The police report also states
That Dropla has a "deviant" sex-
ual history.
In the 1980s, Dropla was ac-
cused of molesting his nieces,
who were between 4 and 7.


The West Columbia Police
Department and the South
Carolina Law Enforcement
Division investigated. How-
ever, an agreement was made
between family members and
no charges were filed.
Dropla also is accused of
committing sexual battery on a
stepbrother between 1982-
1986. The victim told family
members, but law enforce-
ment was never notified.
In 1996, Dropla was arrested
in North Carolina for first-
degree rape, but the charges
were dismissed because the
family believed the trial would
be traumatic to the victim.
In 1998, Dropla was sus-
pected of exposing himself to
children on a school bus.

The importance of good health cannot be overstated-for you and your health
plan. Simple, complete and the picture of good health, AdvantageCare is
different indeed. As a Medicare Advantage health plan, AdvantageCare simplifies
everything, providing coverage for Part A (hospital), Part B (medical), and now
Part D (prescriptions). More importantly, instead of rewarding physicians for
keeping treatment costs down, we reward ours for keeping you active, fit and
healthy. It's simple, logical, proactive and long overdue. It's AdvantageCare.

Meeting on health

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.
The meeting will be held
Tuesday, Jan. 10, from 3:30 to
5 p.m. at the Nokomis Com-
munity Center, 234 East Nip-
pino Trail, Nokomis. Please
park in the front or on the
west side of the building.
The loss of employer-


sponsored insurance is the
greatest factor in the growing
number of uninsured per-
sons. Economically, the lack
of insurance signLficandly re-
duces both productivity and
earnings among workers, and
medical debt is now the cause
of nearly 50 percent of all
bankruptcies in the United
States.

CITY a


investigation,
County staff has not fin-
ished the investigation into
the Villa Lago annexation, so
no details were available.
According to Staub, this all
points to the need for more
joint planning between the
city and coutyl:
"I am not sure how it all
will turn out, but I think that
this instance, which seems to
have garnered some frustra-
tion on all sides, pc'ints out
the need for riegional plan-
ning." Staub said. "I am hop-
ing that we can come to con-
sensus this year on planning
for g\ow h in the Venice area.
It seems reasonable for the
city to know the counin's
plans for growth, as well for
the county to know the city'
intent"
All about communication
At least one county com-
missioner, Jon Thaxton,
couldYnt understand how the
city-county relationship had
fallen into such disrepair.
"Why is that with one little
slip we can lose so much
ground!" Thaxton wrote in a
Dec. 7 e-mail response to
Black's harsh words. "I feel
like a mountaineer who just
fell off a cliff after climbing for
a week. Let's fix this."
Fixing the growing rift -
which neither side is calling a
rift may be more difficult
than imnained. One year after

ments on any of the resolu-
tions.
For example:
*The Venice Avenue Bridge
remains unpainted as the city
was excluded from the plan-
ning and bid process.
There's been no move-
mnent on the joint planning
agreement for redevelop-
ment of land along the U.S. 41
B;i 3.i corridor.
Boih sides continue
e::~u.ig fingers about who's

County growth the city
-idah its potential 7,000 homes
in North Venice, or the county
with a possible 12,000 homes
along River and Center roads
in South Venice.
County Administrator Jim
Ley said all of these issues
point to the importance of
signing a comprehensive
joint planning agreement
that details all growth issues
- not just specific areas like
North Venice, the bypass cor-
ridor or South Venice.
The only problem is, there
have been no discussions
about that ambitious plan for
more than three years since a
previous proposal fell apart at
the last minute.
"Venice is the one city
we've had the most produc-
tive conversation with, but
we've never reached a final-
ized agreement. ... There is
no rift. There are issues to be
worked out," Ley said.

ager, there have been no
direct discussions between
the city or county concerning
the annexation investigation.
Black said the county has
only requested a copy of the
Sept. 25, 2003, memo from
Sarasota County Real Prop-
erty Officer Lin Kfurrant tam w
that the Villa T.ago annexationn
would be 'bhir-teficil to the
county and supported by- thle

This memo has been held
up by the city as county sup-

intend to hold up fitiure
annexations bordering Villa
Lago.
And in the Laurel-Pine-

owners like Villa Lago and S&T
Properties have to come into
the city in order to obtain
water and sewer service. The
city lines are already border-
ing their properties, while the
county has yet to reach them.
Black said.
"They're doing what
they're doing, and we're doing
what we're always doing
Black said of county-city in-
teractions. 'Frankly we're re-
lying on the good faith of the
Villa Lago annexaiion- ... Be-

OUR VIEW



Can we help Florida homeowners learn about insurance?


lorida homeowners have watched the
value of their property soar recently.
Homes can easily sell for double the ini-
tial price someone paid just a few years ago.
Some Floridians are taking advantage of
that by cashing out moving to Georgia,
Mississippi or the Carolinas. Tennessee also
is a popular destination for people looking to
buy a home at a lower price.
While some are bragging about the sub-
stantial hike in their net worth (simply
because they arrived in this state back when
home prices were lower), there also are com-
plaints because their insurance bills are soar-
ing. Some call these insurance costs unfair
and unrealistic.
What they fail to remember is when their
home was worth $100,000, if it was destroyed





Wish List



for 2006


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

Each year I set out a wish
list, with many of the same
Pt et ygs elsewhere
-min-our paper and otBers, but
alsb some maybe a little
smaller in scale, maybe ones
no one is thinking about.
Of course, we want to final-
ly see the Pinebrook Road
extension completed, which I
am told will happen this
month and next. That is one
we all can agree on. Actually,
work is to start this week:
It would be nice to see the
children's water park com-
pleted, as it has run into the
same kind of contractor
issues. It is nearing comple-
tion.
I'd love to see the city put in
more power to be able to have
very large displays of Christ-
mas decorations. They keep
talking about it but it just
doesn't move up the list.
It would be nice if some
benevolent sort gave the
Venice Little Theatre money
to put a real roof on its look-
out tower, and fascia of some
kind on its warehouse that
faces the bridge. It's sort of
tacky at the north entrance
into the city.
I would love to see the rail-
road trestle in Nokomis not
get raised so we can complete
the trail to Sarasota and
thoroughly tick off the people
living on the water who want
the bridge raised so they can
have bigger boats, although it
is disguised as a need for
emergency services.
It would be nice to secure a
railroad car from Ringling to
complete our railroad park
and museum. It is long over-
due to get a proposal out for
how the railroad station is
going to be used.
I hope that the Venetian
Waterway Park folks, Fred
Hind and gang, find the more
than $100,000 they need to
complete the trail, at least the
cement portion. They had it
all funded and then the
cement prices went through
the roof or the cement
went to China.
It would be nice to repave
Tampa Avenue between No-
komis and Harbor. For years
this has been very rough.
We want to see the Frank
movie theaters in Galleria
Plaza come in and, hopefully,
the long-anticipated Kilwin's,


by a storm, the insurance companies had to
fork over $100,000 minus the deductible.
Now to repair or replace that same dwelling,
those same insurance companies are expect-
ed to pay the owner the current appraised
price. So it only seems logical these compa-
nies should charge more, if they must pay out
more.
This is by no means a blanket defense of
insurance companies. None is in business for
altruistic reasons. But, as with those who own
real estate in Florida, insurance company
stockholders expect their dividends and
stock prices to constantly increase.
Meanwhile, baby boomers from Northern
states are retiring in record numbers. Despite
our hurricanes and warnings of global warm-
ing, our state is still seen as the ultimate place


which has fudge to die for.
It's time for the wellness
center planned for years at
the high school, that lots of
people have given money to,
to happen. Our girls and boys
deserve the best facilities, as
we have incredibly good
coaches.
It is time for egos to get put
aside and Bob Rigby to get his
secret red tide formula to a
testing organization that can
really determine if it is as
good as the Venice High sci-
ence department says it
might be. The government
needs .tospend money. n a
cure, not just on deteciuon.
It should be the year that
the Boys & Girls Club and the
YMCA both finish new facili-
ties. Oh, to be a kid again.
What great facilities we will
have.
Maybe this will be the year
that we tear down the old gas
stations dotting the land-
scape, a couple in Nokomis
and one next to the Hatchett
Creek Bridge.
I hope the Friends of the
Venice Community Center
can get a soft drink machine.
Could it be the year the city
develops a plan for the air-
port? Wouldn't a nice marina,
hotel and ,restaurant, and
maybe a couple of shops, be a
nice additiori?
Hopefully the police de-
partment will get its national
certification back.
Finishing the park next to
Sharky's and the one on the
Myakka next to Venetian Golf
& River Club would be great.
The rather new street lights
on Business 41 have a lot of
burned-out bulbs, or fixtures
not working. I hope they will
work again soon.
Maybe we'll see the inter-
section at Knights Trail finally
widened and improved.
The charter reviewthat will
take place has a chance to
improve the charter, yetcould
go too far, so I hope it finds
the right middle ground.
Let's hope the county
installs water lines in Noko-
mis in a timely fashion, and
completes the project on
Shore Road and in Bay Point
in a timely fashion.

By's Crack: A friend of
mine borrowed $500 for
plastic surgery. He never
paid me back and now I
don't know what he looks
like.

to escape from frigid, blustery winters.
Most families who sell their homes in the
North so they can spend their waning
years in our paradise have never enjoyed
the earlier, lower Florida insurance rates, so
most will budget properly when they arrive.
In fact their insurance rates on their homes in
the North increased as insurance companies
sought ways to spread the cost around and
offset their Florida losses.
The announcement that Citizens Property
Insurance hopes to boost premiums on
windstorm insurance an average, 44.9 per-
cent statewide does seem shocking. But the
new rates at this state-run insurer of last
resort are not expected to go into effect for six
months. That, at least, gives people planning
time.

Dems only grouse
when Bush does it
Editor:
Ever since the N.Y Times
reported that the National
Security Agency intercepted
international phone calls
between Americans and sus-
pected al-Qaida agents, Dem-
ocrats and their media co-
horts have been accusing
President Bush of "domestic
spying."
Why didn't they object
when former presidents Cart-
er and Clinton authorized
their NSAs to do the same
kind of surveillance during
their administrations?
In 2002, a panel of appel-


Nokomis


late judges stated, in the FISA
case (U.S. vs. Truong), that the
president did have inherent
authority to "conduct war-
rantless searches to obtain
foreign intelligence informa-
tion." And also that "we take
for granted that the president
does have that authority and,
assuming that is so, FISA
could not encroach on the
president's constitutional
power."
The current wiretaps have
only been used in cases
involving suspected al-Qaida
agents. Several planned
attacks, including one to blow
up the Brooklyn Bridge, have
been prevented as a result of

No, not all his nonsense
about our nation being divid-

the widespread abject pover-

filthy rich, such as himself.
But there are two Americas.
By way of explanation,
here are the two headlines:
"Atheist to challenge In God
We Trust" and "Willis offers $1
million to fight terrorism."
The first refers to a Cali-
fornia man, Michael New-
dow, who wants the phrase
"In God We Trust" removed
from our currency.
The second has the actor
Bruce Willis posting a reward
for the capture of terrorists.
For once, this is a promise
from a Hollywood-type that


By law, Citizens Property must charge
more than the amount levied by the state's 20
largest private insurers, to encourage people
to sign up with private companies. This
means there is time for those now covered by
Citizens to begin checking around to see if
they can do better.
Many claim trying to read and understand
insurance documents is on a par with trying
to unravel federal income tax law or quickly
grasp the confusing new Medicare rules.
They're right, in spite of efforts to make poli-
cies more readable.
Perhaps it is time to create new volunteer
groups:who are not biased (as some insur-
ance salesmen might be considered to be) to

advice in such matters.

those "threats" from some
who were moving to Canada,
France or someplace else if
Bush were elected and then
again if he were re-elected.
The poll data on the reli-
gious makeup of the U.S.
varies, but a conservative
number shows about 80 per-
cent of us are Christian, who
believe in God and vigorously
celebrate Christmas and so
ori.
There are differing opin-
ions regarding the war in Iraq
and whether we should be
there, but most of us still
believe we should be aggres-
sively fighting the war on ter-

Boat house sounds
like a good idea
Editor:
Good idea for the city of
Venice: Let Mr. Konecnik
build a boat house, and
crown it with a nice gondola
on top. That would be far
more Venetian than another
tower sticking out obtrusively
above our landscape.
What is wrong with a boat
house? That is not a threat;
that would be far more of a
service to Venice and our
boating community than yet
another overpriced rack-o-
minium condominium.
Mr. Konecnik says it is for
the good of everyone. Well, we
know it is at least for the good
of himself when he speaks of

ing again regarding the trail
along the east side of the In-
tracoastal Waterway. I called
before because we literally
have no place else in this city
to bike safely, and I thought,
boy, here we go, we can have
this long trail on both sides of
the Intracoastal to bike on.
Then all of a sudden the east
side is started and then stop-
ped. What's going on? I don't
understand why we, can't get
that project finished so we
can have 10 miles of trail.
Please give me some under-
standing or somebody to call
who I can complain to be-
cause I really do appreciate
being able to bike in a safe
environment.

Today's Ism (at the Lofty
Lion): Chocolate is not a veg-
etable.

The state champion VHS
girls volleyball team was
feted by members of the
Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club
and Sertoma, as well as a lot of
parents and community well-
wishers Thursday at noon.
The Gondolier Sun put
together a poster highlighting
the season with pictures of
the team. For subscribers the
posters are available free at
the newspaper and for non-
subscribers they can be pur-
chased for 25 cents.

A customer wonders if the

as a Home Depot if times get
bad. It certainly has the look.

Errors corrected in North Port lot prices
Due to a data processing error, the minimum lot values for the sale of
escheated properties in North Port that appeared on the Fisher Auction
Company Web site from Dec. 23-27 were incorrect. The session 1 sale of lots
will be conducted Jan. 19-26.
The lot pricing information was corrected on Dec. 28 and the minimum values
are posted for the session 1 online auction. In addition to the pricing errors,.
some lots scheduled for sale during sessions 2 and 3 were mistakenly included
in the session 1 group.
The lots and prices currently listed only include lots to be sold during the first of
three online auction "sessions." Some lots with lower minimum prices are
scheduled for online sessions 2 and 3, which begin Jan. 30 and end Feb. 20.
There also will be a live auction Feb. 28 at the North Port Performing Arts
Center.
Sarasota County and Fisher Auction advise the.public and Realtors not to rely
on any price, lot or parcel identification number, auction grouping or other data
posted from Dec. 23-27. The minimum values as assigned by Sarasota
County's contract appraiser, Roger Hettema,.have not changed.
Sarasota County and Fisher Auction Company have instituted additional
internal controls to assure the accuracy of any future information on the
escheated lot sale.
Sarasota County and Fisher Auction Company regret any confusion or
inconvenience this error may have caused for Realtors or potential lot bidders.
For further information, please contact Fisher Auction Company at 888-425-
2322 or Larry Arnold at 861-0940 or Terry Gilbert at 650-2668. The Web site is

Inconsistent Ladies let one slip away


Lakewood Ranch wins
at the buzzer in
overtime.

CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

With the regular season
winding down to its final few
weeks, the Venice High girls
varsity basketball team is still
fighting to find consistency in
its game.
One night, the Lady Indi-
ans look sharp. The next time
out, they don't look so good.
This will happen with a
young team.
Although playing .sloppy
ball for much of Friday night's
game against visiting Lake-
wood Ranch, the Lady Indi-
ans still had a chance to steal
a victory from the Lady Must-
angs.
They saw that chance slip
away in the final second of
overtime, as Kristen Fulmer's
follow of her own missed shot
allowed Ranch to leave town
with a 27-26 decision.
It was Lakewood Ranch's
second win of the season over
Venice. The Lady Mustangs
improved to 10-6 overall and
5-4 in Class 5A District 12.
Venice fell to 10-8 and 5-5.
Earlier in the week at Port
Charlotte, Venice avenged an
earlier loss with a double-
digit victory.
"We only had 12 turn-
ivers," said first-year head
coach George Stritz. "We were
in never-never land. Tonight,
we had 25 turnovers. How can
you go one game with 12 and
25 the next? We gave up 15
offensive rebounds. We
weren't boxing out."
The biggest offensive re-
bound for Ranch came at the
end.
The Lady Mustangs in-
bounded from side court at
the Venice end with 10 sec-
onds left. Ranch almost didn't
get the ball in play in five sec-
onds, but Fulmer the Lady
Mustangs leading scorer -
got the ball 12-feet out on the
left side. She popped a short
jumper that bounced off the
rim. Fulmer, Ranch's tallest
player at 6-1, followed her
shot, rebounding and putting
the ball back up. This time, it
fell through the net and the
Lady Mustangs'had won.
Fulmer finished with a
game-high 13 points.

Hustling Venice guard Diana Mehserle is on the gym floor as teammate Kaylee Ream (23) stands guard as both teams scramble
for a loose ball Friday night.


"If we would have boxed
out on her missed shot, we
would have won," Stuitz said.
Venice had taken a 26-25
lead with 1:20 left in OT on a
short baseline jumper by
Samantha Worthington.
Worthington was respon-
sible for the game even going
into overtime. Ranch held a
23-20 lead with three seconds
left in the fourth quarter.
Venice inbounded to Worth-
ington deep in the corner on
the right side. She turned,
fired, and sw\ish.
Venice had offensive woes-
all night long. Besides the
turnovers, the shooting per-
centage was sad.
The Lady Indian trailed
15-8 at halftime and 21-16
entering the final quarter.
Guard Lindsey Riegsecker
led Venice in scoring with
nine points. She had a pair of
big 3-pointers in the second
half to pace the Worthington
finished with eight points.
"I'm proud of the girls,"
Stritz said. "How many min-
utes of playing time do we
have from last year? Sam-
natha, maybe a couple of
minutes. The girls are trying
hard. How can you fault
them?"


Samantha Worthington makes a move against Ranch. The
Venice girls lost an overtime heartbreaker.

Friday at the Teepee.


Venice will try to get back
on the winning track Tuesday
night at the Teepee against
Charlotte. There are six games
left on the schedule before
the district tournament,
which begins Jan. 31 at Man-
atee High.
Meanwhile, the Venice
junior varsity girls, coached
by Bob Galetka, continue to
have an awesome season.
The Little Ladies improved
their record to 12-1 with a 51-
5 thumping of the Ranch. Jen
Olson once again led in scor-
ing with 19 points. Beth
Eddings returned from injury
with a strong eight-point per-
formance. Forward Grace
Dunn also contributed eight
points.

CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice High boys basket-
ball hasn't blown out many
teams over the past few years.
It happened Friday night at
Lakewood Ranch High, as the
Indians put it all together in a'
65-32 laugher over the
Mustangs.

It was the first meeting
between the two schools this
season. Venice improved its
overall record to 7-9 and its
Class 5A District 12 mark to 3-


5. Ranch fell to 4-8 and 2-6.
"It's the best we played all
season," said Venice coach
Steve Cavallaro. "We played
hard beginning to end. We
had intensity and we played
to win."
When you're hot, you're
hot. Venice shot close to 50
percent from the field.
Junior forward Kyle Abney,
who keeps getting better
week by week, led the way
with 17 points, most of them
coming on slicing drives to
the hoop. He shot 7-for-14


from the field.
Guard George Stritz was on
fire from the outside. He had
four 3-point goals on seven
tries and finished up with 16
points.
Senior point guard Ariel
Bonilla had nine points, as
did freshman guard Kyle Jut-
ras, who had his best game of
the season.
Cavallaro was most pleas-
ed about how his team took
care of the ball, only commit-
ting four turnovers.
As a team, Venice regis-


tered 17 assists. Bonilla and
Stritz had five apiece while
Jutras had three.
Abney grabbed eight
boards and center Ilya
Vasilevskiy added seven re-
bounds.
Venice has a tough test this
coming Tuesday at Charlotte
High. The Indians lost to the
Tarpons earlier this season in
Venice.
"That's the test," Cavallaro
said. "We'll see if we can put
two good games together
back-to-back."

'Family friendly' school fee policy rehashed


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Even if you can afford it,
should you be required to pay
$300 for classroom materials
for your child? The Sarasota
County School Board doesn't
think so.
When board -members
learned some teachers were
asking students to purchase
classroom supplies, like xerox
paper and board markers, as
well as companion work-
books for required texts, they
directed school administra-.
tors to draft a policy ending'
the practice. The draft didn't
pass muster with the board
last month, but a second
revision was adopted this
week.
It accomplishes part of the
board's wish to streamline
school fees. The board work-
shoped the issue a number of
times after complaints from
parents.
Extracurricular fees, in-
cluding sports and band fees,
and a myriad of fundraising
efforts, are another can of
worms the board will ad-


dress in coming months.
"In a perfect world I would
have a policy with no fees for
school supplies .and no do-
nations," said.board member
Laura Benson, chief backer
of the new policy. "This was a
first step, and it took three
years to pass. The wheels of
change turn slowly."
It's particularly significant
in light of the upcoming
school tax referendum, since
taxpayers already give the
district a sig-
nificant sum :--?,.
of money,
she said.
Benson
first began
looking at the
issue three
years ago
after writing
$350 in Benson
checks for
various fees required for her
son to attend Pine View.

Annual review
On Tuesday Benson offer-'
ed additional amendments
that were adopted by the
board. The board then voted


to advertise the new policy.
The public has a month to
comment on or bring con-
cerns to the board before
they vote onfinal adoption.
"The whole thing is to be
as family friendly as possi-
ble," Benson said.
New policy clarifies there
should be no charge for re-
quired texts and their ac-
companying workbooks or
other 'classroom material. It
doesn't entirely stop the prac-
tice. But schools will no'long-
er be allowed to charge for
required materials. in any
subject.
If a teacher states the
material is optional, but then
uses it in class and requires
students to write in it. "then
it is part of the required
material and should approp-
riately be paid for by the
school," said board member
Kathy Kleinlein. "Our inten-
tion under the policy is to
monitor fees and make them
uniform."
"Teachers have pretty
much had done things 'as
they wanted," said'Barbara
Chomko, executive director


of High School Education.
"There were no guidelines.
The board wanted to clearly
delineate what was supported
by the board and what was
not. (I antici-
pate) they are
going to go
further, once
they look into
extracurricu-
lar activities
like cheer-
leading and
band instru-
ment rental Kleinlein
fees."
The key change takes cur-
rent administrative guide-
lines and puts them into
board policy so administrat-
ors and individual schools
can't make unauthorized
changes. It also calls for an
annual review of classroom
fee schedules for every school
by the school board.

Tax exempt week
Benson also wanted the
posted fee schedule for next
year included with each final
report card by July so parents
could take advantage of tax


No impact locally from voucher ruling


exemption week to purchase
school supplies. But adminis-
trators said the time frame
may make it difficult to get
the information.
The board adopted a com-
promise offered by Super-
intendent Gary Norris to
place fee schedule informa-
tion online, where possible,
before tax break week.

Nixed
Benson was also success-
ful in getting unanimous
support to delete two sec-
tions in the draft a section
allowing parents to purchase
additional copies of instruc-
tional materials, and a section
allowing students to pay off
lost or damaged textbooks
through community service.
Both options are already
allowed under state law. The
board was uncomfortable
with the language in the con-
text of this particular policy,
and the message it might
send.
Benson said the nixed lan-
guage could have implied the
board was, once again, grant-
ing schools the authority to
charge fees.
The final amendment of-
fered .by Benson, and adopt-
ed by the board, was to make
notification of supplies fee


lists the responsibility of the
schools. Initial language stat-
ed the fee schedule would be
provided to parents "upon
request."

New rules
Teachers will be required
to run their fee requests by
the principal first standard
procedure, but not always
practiced. Each principal is
now directed to approve a
list of supplies required for a
grade level, team, academy
or individual class. Teachers
may not require supplies or
materials that aren't approv-
ed by the principal, states
the policy.
Parents will be informed of
the fee associated with spe-
cific activities and how to
apply for a waiver.
"If parents tell us they
can't afford it, we will accom-
modate them," Kleinlein said.
"There needs to be a limit,
especially at the elementary
level."
S"I am glad school fees are
rising to the board level for
review," Benson said. "My
hope is the message is going
out to schools that just by
our discussing it, they need
to seriously consider just what
it is they are asking parents
to pay for participating."

Thursday's ruling by the
Florida Supreme Court that
Opportunity Scholarships are
unconstitutional under Flor-
ida law will have little ef-
fect on Sarasota County
schools.
The smallest of three
voucher programs developed
under Gov. Jeb Bush, the pro-


gram served more than 700
students in some of the state's
more populated areas.- but
none in Sarasota County.
The program allows pat-
ents of children at a failing
public school to send their
child to another public school
with a satisfactory record, or
to use state funds to pay
tuition at a private school.
The ruling sidestepped the
issue of using state funds to
I


arnend parochial schools.
Paramount duty
Article LX section Ia) of
the Florida Constitution pro-
vides: "It is ... a paramount
duty of the state to make ade-
quate provision for the edu-
cation of all children residing
within its borders. Adequate
provision' shall be made by
law for a uniform, efficient,
safe, secure, and high quality


system of free public schools."
..."We find that the (Oppor-
iunity Scholarship Program)
violated this language," wrote
Chief Justice Barbara Pari-
ente. ;
In order not to disrupt the
education of students receiv-
ing vouchers for the current
school year, implementation
of the decision takes effect at
the conclusion of the current
school year.

Deadline looms over city, West Villages


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

West Villages and North
'Port have much work to do
to get a post-annexation
agreement signed by March
31.


more than 5 miles away, it is
equivalent to having no fire
protection.
He said this means pur-
chasers will not be able to get
mortgages because they will
be unable to obtain fire insur-
ance.


Good faith gesture
However, Boone said he is
concerned that there is not
enough time to get an agree-
ment to the commissioners
and signed by March 31.
: Jones said the final agree-
ment does not need to go


through DRC, as the mem-
bers of the city's team are also
on the DRC.
Boone said that DiVosta
has already spent $11 million
on infrastructure without an
agreement
"We will continue to put in


infrastructure as a good faith
gesture," Boone said, adding
that DiVosta is caught in the
middle of this, as it is not a
party to this agreement.
Boone said he fully intends
to have the post annexation
agreement done quickly.


'After the Jan. 18 and 19
meeting, we should be work-
ing on the terms," Boone
said.

You can e-mail George
McGinn atgmcginn@
sunherald.com.


Without the agreement,
West Villages (Thomas
Ranch) will have to meet 11
'.conditions to pull building
permits for the 328 homes in
phases 1A and lB.
At its Dec. 20 meeting, the
SDevelopment Review Com-
'mittee approved an amended
ordinance,
Switch condi-
tions, to allow
West Villages
and its devel-
oper, DiVosta

pull up to 328
building per-
mits while
work is being Boone
Done on the
Spost-annexation agreement.
The 11 conditions allvper-
tain to public safety and wel-
Wfare, said City Planner Sam
"Staff took a hard, look at
Sthe issues and crafted condi-
Stions to ensure services will
be provided when people
start living there," Jones said.
The conditions, cover
waste pickup, police, fire and
Ambulance services.
"When the post-annexa-
tion agreement is signed, these
conditions will go away"
S"Noones said.
SRob, Robinson, attorney
for the city, said in an ideal
world the city would already
have a development agree-
ment in place, with all these
conditions addressed.
"North Port is not an ideal
world." Robinson said.
He said that DiVosta's time-
table for the 328 homes is
t rapidly approaching. The
Conditions cover minimum
one to do something," Rob-
Swith. Robinson said.
S"Worst case scenario is if
a development agreement is
Sgnot signed by N oarch31, these
conditions will require some-
one to do something," Rob-
inson said.
The city and West Villages
agree on all but four of the
conditions.
SAnd Jeff Boone, attorney
for West Villages, said he
does not object to these four
conditions "in concept," just
the way they are worded.
Conditions
One of the conditions re-
quires West Villages to pay
SNorth Port and Sarasota
County for fire and rescue
services, but it does not state
What the dollar amounts
O are.*
S Another condition requires
West Villages to pay $915,000
for the purchase of fire and
'" rescue equipment, and to
provide 2.5 acres of property
for a fire station and $1.6
million to pay for its construc-
tion.
The other two conditions
pertain to solid.waste collec-
tion and police services. They
Require reimbursement to
the city for the costs it incurs
to provide these services,
Including purchase of addi-
tional police cars and solid
waste trucks. ,
Robinson said the city has
a mutual-aid agreement with
Sarasota County to provide
fire and EMS coverage in
each of its areas when need-
ed. He also said the city has
' documented that the county
still has "soreness over the
annexations."
"On the first call, they
(county) may not honor the
: interlocal agreement (for
Mutual aid) it has with the
v city," Robinson said.
North Port Fire Chief Wil-
*,, liam Taaffe said the county is
' also talking about abandon-
ing the fire station located
near the Manatee Commun-
ity College campus on U.S.
,, 41.
Taaffe said without that
^ station, the nearest station is
. about 7 miles away. He said

steers her clients away from
wallcoverings that contain
vinyl. One alternative she
particularly likes is Innviron-
ments, a line of wallcovering
from Innovations inWallcov-
erings Inc.
The products in the Innvi-
ronments line are made from
either natural and renewable
or recyclable materials, using
water-based inks.
The variety of styles is wide.
Among them are iridescent


wall papers, leopard prints,
grass cloth, linen and cork
looks and a wall covering that
resembles suede.
Innvironments wallcover-
ings are intended for com-
mercial use, but are often
used in residential settings,
said Michael Hardin of the
Dorsey Group, the manufac-
turer's representative in Ohio.
However, their wider size:and
the properties of the wallcov-
erings make them better


suited.for professional
installation than a do-it-
yourself project. A contract
can order the wallcoverings
from the company.
More information is avail
able at Innovations in Wall-
coverings's Web site,

generic term for vinyl floor-
ing, but the two are not the
same. Linoleum is made
primarily from natural
ingredients including linseed
oil, which oxidizes over time
to make it more durable.
It's also become something
of a fashion statement in the
last decade. Hoffman and
Wolff are partial to Mar-
moleum, a brand of linoleum
from Forbo Flooring that
comes in a variety of colors
and designs that can be
combined to create patterns
much like rugs.
Linoleum is comfortable
underfoot and holds up well
under heavy traffic, which is
why Hoffman chose it for a
playroom she designed in
Rocky River. Dust doesn't
cling to it, and the oxidation
of the linseed oil keeps
microorganisms from
multiplying on it, giving it an
antibacterial quality.
Information on Mar-
moleum is available at
www.forbolinoleumna.com.

NATURAL FABRICS
Both Hoffman and Hudson
interior designer Pamela
Bayer are enamored with
Indika, a brand of natural
fabrics woven in Kalispell,
Mont.
The fabrics are made from
natural and organically
grown materials such as silk,
hemp and organic cotton,
and are free of synthetic
chemicals and dyes. Plant
and vegetable dyes create
variation in the color of the
fabrics, giving it a richness,
Bayer said.
The company uses the
fabric in high-end bedding
and towels and also makes
fabrics for use in window
treatments and upholstery.
"They're gorgeous,"
Hoffman said.
Indika information is
available at http://indika-
home.com or 866-446-3452.

Dear Santa, sprechen sie Deutsch?


Nuremberg Toy Museum director Dr. Helmut Schwarz with display of dolls by manufacturer Erna Meyer, founded in Munich, 1945.


BYJOHN MCCAFFERTY
GUESTWRITER

Nuremberg Now that
Santa Claus (or St. Nicholas)
has spread joy and left new
toyv for millions of little boys
arid girls throughout the
United States, is he really
returning to the North Pole?
Or, could he be driving his
miniature sleigh and eight
tiny reindeer to Nuremberg?
Why Nuremberg? Because
it's the "toy capital of the
world" and has been for cen-
turies.
Nuremberg's toy-making
tradition stretches back 600
years to its "dockenmacher"
(doll makers) who fashioned


figures from clay and then
wooden dolls with moving
parts. First mention of a toy
maker in the city's tax records
was for a doll maker around
1400A.D.
Wooden toys established
Nuremberg's reputation as a
toy city by the 16th and 17th
century. Since then, local
merchants have exported to
the world the toys made here
and elsewhere. Even today,
) the Nuremberg area remains
an important toy production
center.
Each year, Bavaria's second
largest city hosts the world's
biggest international toy fair.
On Feb. 2-7, about 77,000
trade visitors from 100 na-


Nutcracker, carved in the Groedner Valley (South Tyrol), paint-
ed in Oberammergau (Bavaria), around 1800.


tions will attend the Spiehvar-
enmesse International Toy
Fair. More than 2,700
exhibitors from more than 65
countries will show off a mil-
lion or more products,
including some 60,000 new
lines and improvements.
The best place to learn
about Nuremberg's long.toy-
making history is at the
Nuremberg Toy Museum.
Located in the heart of Old
Town with its timbered hous-
es and narrow, cobblestone
streets, the Toy Museum has a
vast and very high-quality
collection of toys from antiq-
uity to the present, with
emphasis on the 18th to 20th
centuries.
When my wife, Regina, and
I visited the museum in
November, we met with its
director, Dr. Helmut Schwarz.
When we arrived, he was
working on an exhibition of
"spiel gut" toys on loan from
an association that awards its
seal of approval for toys meet-
ing specific quality standards
in educational value and
design.
Dr. Schwarz said the asso-
ciation is independent of the
toy industry and trade and
uses toy experts and families
for testing before granting its
"spiel gut" award to toys.
Thousands of toys have been
granted the award since the
association was founded in
1954.
Originally inWurzburg, the
toy museum is based on the
private toy collection of the
late Lydia and Paul Bayer. It
was moved to Nuremberg
and reopened in 1971 at its
present location at 13-15
Karlstrasse in a house with a
Renaissance facade dating
back to about 1610. Only a
rococo stucco ceiling and the
doors of the same room re-
main from the original build-
ing.
The museum's collection
comprises about 65,000 ob-
jects but only about 5 percent
of these are displayed at one
time. We saw many historic
wooden toys, dolls and ex-
quisite doll houses. The doll


houses are replete with peri-
od furnishings and tiny
household items, down to
plates, cups, pots and pans.
Like many toys on display,
the doll houses are extraordi-
nary because of their fine
craftsmanship. We took spe-
cial note of a lavishly-fur-
nished, 1882 doll house kitch-
en owned by the Royal Ba-
varian family, the House of
Wittelsbach.
"The three princesses of
the last ruling Bavarian King,
Ludwig III, all played with it,"
Dr. Schwarz explained.
With some 110,000 visitors
a year, the Toy Museum is one
of Nuremberg's most popular
museums, along with the
Germanisches Nationalmu-
seum and the Verkehrsmu-
seum (Transportation Mu-
seum). Its oldest exhibits in-
clude a baby's toy rattle from
8 or 9 B.C.
"No other German toy mu-
seum has such old artifacts,"
said Dr. Schwarz.
"Hundreds of toys were
found during excavations in
the 19th century when the
city had to change during
industrialization and had to
dig up a lot of things."
He said the ancient toy rat-
tle came from the border.be-
tween Germany and Poland.


On our tour, we also saw
optical toys, clowns, puppets,
mechanical toys, posters,
rocking horses, musical toys
and many other play things of
the past, including a 1905
Steiff Teddy Bear. We also
saw many early European
toys from Nuremberg and
other German regions, such
as Thuringia Forest, the Ore
Mountains and
Oberammergau.
When Dr. Schwarz escort-
ed us into the only original
room from 1610, he said, "I
wanted to show you both this
room and this cabinet which
shows the development of
the tin soldiers in Nuremberg.
The famous tin soldier was
invented here."
The museum houses the
world's .largest collection of
Lehmann tin toys, said Dr.
Schwarz, explaining that E.R
Lehmann, "was the world,s
best maker of mechanical tin
toys."
The company, in Nurem-
berg since World War II, is
well-known in the United
States today for its large, LGB
garden train, which can be
used indoors or outside be-
cause its tracks are made of
solid brass.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


ByVicki Connell.
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I recently purchased new
digital hearing aids from -
(a national retail establish-
ment). After I got them, they
had me repeat words with
the hearing aidson and I did
better than without the
hearing aids. Even though
they tell me I hear better,
I'm still unsatisfied. Why?
A. Because classic methods ior
S verifying fittings do not
appropriately test the new
technology. In fact, the
clinician must, turn off many of
the hearing aid's features in
order to make the old testing
methods work. However, by
turning off features, the
clinician can't "see" the "real"
effects of the amplifier and
cannot properly troubleshoot
problems the patient may be
experiencing. New verification
technology is now available
which does allow for proper
testing of advanced hearing
aids. This new'technology is
called Real Speech Spectrum
testing and involves the
placement of a probe tube near
the ear drum. Once the hearing
aid is inserted and activated,
the clinician can readily
observe whether all speech
sounds are audible or not and
make any necessary
adjustment for clarity and
comfort. If your clinician is not
using Real Speech Spectrum
testing, then there is simply no
way for them to properly
diagnose your problem or to
correct it. If you currently own
a hearing aid which you feel
needs some adjustments, call
the Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. at 492-4327 to schedule a
consultation. The Audiologist
will hook your hearing aid up
to the Real Speech Spectrum
equipment and be able to tell
you the problem and how to fit
it.

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.

PACKING IT IN
Recently, parents have been warned of the potential dangers posed by the heavy loads that children often carry in
their backpacks. As much as an overly heavy backpack may strain the lower back, however, this is not the most
common health problem associated with backpacks. According to recent data analysis, carrying a heavy backpack
only ties for second place among the causes of backpack injuries, along with being the victim of having someone
throw a backpack at you. First place among backpack-related injuries (28%) goes to tripping over a backpack.
The most common areas of injury were the head and face. While injuries to the back rated only sixth, the majority
of such injuries were related to carrying the backpack.
This informative column, and the suggestion, have been brought to you as a public service in the interest of better
health. Chiropractic is based on the fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue and
organ in your body. Chiropractic benefits people of all ages, from infants to those in their golden years. At
TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER, we can help alleviate specific conditions, but also help
improve your overall health and well-being. We strive to make each patient feel at ease with quality chiropractic
care. We're located at 1214-C Venice Ave., East. Please call 941-412-3800 to schedule an appointment. We're
currently accepting new patients. We offer massage therapy and have 2 licensed massage therapists on staff.
P.S. A child should not carry more than 10%-15% of his or her body weight in a backpack, which should be worn
correctly, utilizing both shoulder straps and the waist strap.

Gulf Coast Seniors seeking members


JIM MILLER
COLUMNIST


Dear Savvy Senior,
I'm worried about my dad's
driving abilities. He just tumed
84 and is currently recovering
from a broken hip, but can't wait
to get back behind the wheel
again. He thinks he's a great dri-
ver, but my sister and I think it's
time for him to give it up before
he hurts himself or someone
else. Any suggestions on how to
handle this matter? Nervous
Son
Dear Nervous,
Be gentle with your dad.
Those subtle physical and
mental changes, which hap-


pen with aging, cause many
seniors to drive less safely
than they used to. But, what
makes this a more compli-
cated problem is these.
changes usually happen so
slowly, most people don't rec-
ognize them until they're
faced with a quick driving
decision that they can't react-
to anymore. Here are some
tips on how to keep your dad
safe and mobile.
Driving assessment
How bad is your dad's dri-
ving? The best way to find
out is to take a ride with him
and watch out for some key
warning signs, including:
Driving too slow, too fast,
or doesn't stay in his own
lane.
Running stop signs-or
red lights without noticing.
Doesn't seem to notice
other cars, pedestrians or
cyclists.
Has problems working
the pedals or turning onto
busy streets.
Reacts slowly and makes


poor driving decisions.
Also, has your dad had
any recent near misses, fend-
er benders or tickets?
Driving adjustments
For the most part, the vast
majority of people older than
65 change how they drive.
For example, they may
choose not to drive after dark
or during rush hour traffic.
Some may avoid highways or
other busy roads while others
will cut back on how often
they drive. Helping your dad
know his driving limitations
and making appropriate
adjustments can help keep
him and other drivers safe.
Safety concerns
If you're seriously worried
about your dad's driving safe-
ty, talk with him head-on and
respectfully express your
concerns. And don't be sur-
prised ifyou get an angry or
defensive response. For
many older drivers, driving

Mountains), around 1930.

Speaking of trains, the mu-
seum has a large model train
layout built by a German
geologist, Dr. Wolfram Bis-
marck, and several helpers
between 1950-74. It recreates
Union Station in Omaha,
Neb., around 1940-65, and
consists of 37 locomotives, 89
freight cars, three high-speed
trains, two local trains, two
snowploughing and three
auxiliary trains, Many of the
locomotives, cars, tracks,
switches, all buildings and
about 300 figures were hand-
made by Dr. Bismarck and his
helpers. There's even a model
of "Tom Thumb," the first
American-built locomotive.
What's really remarkable is
that Dr. Bismarck never was
in the United States.
"He worked worked from
pictures sent to him from
friends in the United States,"
Dr. Schwarz said. "This Was
his American dream."
In recent years, the muse-
um has been expanded and
refurbished to, accommodate
a "Kids on Top" supervised


play area on the top floor.
Here, children can play with
toys and games, draw or work
on crafts, or even try out toys
that their parents or grand-
parents used to play with.
Birthday parties are also pop-
ular here. About a dozen chil-
dren were having a wonderful
time when we paid a visit.
I'm no expert on toys or
toys museums. However, Dr.
Stevanne Auerbach of San
Francisco, is, so I contacted
her for an appraisal.
Known as "Dr. Toy," Auer-
bach has a PhD and is a fre-
quent speaker and writer on
toys and children's products.
She visits the Nuremberg Toy
Museum every February
while attending the interna-
tional toy fair.
According to Dr. Toy, "The
Nuremberg Toy Museum is
perfect in every way possible.
It houses the most amazing
collection of toys from all over
Germany and other places.
The rotating collections and
shows are always excellent."
Auerbach founded San
Francisco's first toy museum
until an earthquake forced


her to shut it down. The
author of 15 books, Auerbach
includes Nuremberg's Toy
Museum on her Web site
(drtoy.com), which is replete
with information about toys
and educational products for
children.
Auerbach said Nurem-
berg's museum "is valued for
its amazing collections and
historical information, plus
being a link to the past and
reminder of the value of play
and toys over the ages."
For more information,
contact the Nuremberg Toy
Museum at Karlstrasse 13-15,
D-90403 Nuremberg, Ger-
many; Telephone: +911-231-
3164; or check its Web site at

They deal in bobbins and threads


A lace maker explains his pat-
tern to a visitor at the Culture
Center Poselli during Lace
Week.

BY SUSAN MCKEE
SPECIAL TO THE VENICE GONDOLIER SUN

She could have been deal-
ing blackjack in a top Las
Vegas casino. The lace
maker's hands were a blur of
activity as she picked up one
bobbin after another, work-
ing left to right weaving and
wrapping the linen threads in
an intricate design.
But she wasn't in a gam-
bling den. She was sitting in a
lace shop in Rauma, Finland,
patiently explaining what she
was doing to a half-dozen,
mesmerized tourists without
dropping a thread. Cross and
twist, cross and tighten, a
picot here, a windmill there
and repeat and repeat and
repeat, without forgetting to
position all the pins that hold
the plaits in place.
Lace is a medieval craft
that's always fascinated me.

heads of Europe are full of its

the necklines and cuffs of
both men and women.
The dainty edging on baby
clothes is a modem echo of
bobbin lace that sometimes is
as fine as a spider's web.

still are known for their tradi-
tion of handmade lace.

women still sit outside their
houses, fingers flying as they
create yards of the airy con-
fection. Bruges has become
the most-visited city in
Belgium because of its lace-
making history (even if most
of the lace in its many shops
is machine-made in China
these days).
Finland, however, has
Rauma. The city founded
almost six centuries ago
along the Gulf of Bothnia has
a lace-making tradition as old
as the town itself.
The heart of the city of
37,000 has been designated a
UNESCO World Heritage Site.
There, among the brightly
painted wooden houses dat-
ing back to the early 1700s,
the city holds an annual Lace
Week each July. I was drawn
like a moth to a flame.
The earliest mention of
lace making in Rauma is in
the 1740s, when it was
already well established. In
1754, more than 2,600 yards
of bobbin lace were made in
Rauma by the estimated 600
handcrafters. Many were girls
and women, but young boys.
and "men too old to do any-
thing else" also participated.
The development of ma-
chine-made lace in Europe a
century later put this cottage
industry out of business.
Today, at least 150 hobby-
ists, in Rauma still make lace
- the old-fashioned way'.- -b
hand, Ulsing wood brTibbbihs,
a pillow with a built-in roller,
a pattern, lots of pins and
linen thread. Classes in the
Rauma Adult Education
Center have been turning out
new bobbin lace enthusiasts


Examples of Rauma's lace
making skill are on display in
the Culture Center Poselli dur-
ing Lace Week.

since the 1950s.
There are three basic kinds
of pillows used for lace mak-
ing. The "cookie" looks just
like that (only much larger
and puffier). The bolster is
long, round like a tube but fat.
The roller pillow preferred in
Rauma has a base somewhat
like a cookie pillow, but it's
inset with a roller section that
can be rotated as the'pattern
is worked.
The earliest bobbins used
by European lace makers
were probably bone. Finland
has lots of trees, so wooden
ones are the norm in Rauma.
Linen is the traditional fiber,
because flax is an ancient
crop in this part of the world,
and remains an important
agricultural product.
Just as on a sewing
machine, the bobbins store
the thread used for the lace.
They also act as handles
When moving the thread, and
they add weight to the thread
to keep tension against the
pins.

The pins are the pivot
points for the patterns, called
pricking cards.
Crochet work, which also
is made by hand, is a durable
series of interconnected
loops. The more fragile bob-
bin lace is a form of weaving,.
where each thread is attached
to a bobbin so its individual
path can be controlled.
Starting with nothing but that
pattern (many of which date
back centuries), threads are
woven and plaited into intri-
cate patterns.
It all sounds so simple, but
when you look at a lace
maker's pillow and see 38
bobbins in play- well, a life-
Lime wouldn't be long enough
for me to master the art.
I did take heart, though
when i Oisited Culture Center
Poselli, an, exhibitioh hall
filled with pitsikautpunki (lace
makers) for the week. A
young girl of about 10 was
bent over her pillow, slowly
moving a dozen bobbins to
make a lace ribbon about an
inch wide. Hmmm. Now

Other places to see lace in

Lace Week include the
Rauma Museum (with more
than 600 different types of
bobbin lace in a building dat-
ing from 1776) and Pits-Priia,

that master lace maker at
work.
There are about 600 build-
ings in the historic center of
Rauma, most of which
remain private residences. If
you pick up a self-guided


walking tour brochure in the
tourist office, you can wander
through the narrow streets on
your own. Don't miss the stat-
ue of a bobbin lace maker by
Kauko Raike in Helsinki
Square or Tammela, the Old
Rauma Renovation Center,
which has exhibits outlining
the painstakingly authentic

This trip, I stayed at the con-
veniently located Best Western
Hotel Raumanlinna, but next
time I'm going to make reserva-
tions at a hotel only open in the
summer. The lighthouse on
Kylmaipihlaja has a dozen
rooms on an island at the
mouth of the harbor reachable
only by waterbus. The accom-
modations are spartan (shared
toilets and showers on alternate
floors) but the location and
the sunset-is unparalleled.

The Convention Center in Mobile, Ala.


STAFF REPORT

Wildlife festivals, motorcy-
cle and auto races, a world
championship fishing tour-
nament and a rare showing of
Egyptian artifacts from the
BritishMuseum highlight the
past year's top 10 travel rec-
ommendations from Ala-
bama's Gov. Bob Riley.
Alabama Speedweek in
Birmingham and Talladega
tops the suggestion compiled
by the Alabama Bureau of
Tourism & Travel, followed by
the Red Snapper World
Championship in Orange
Beach and the Regions
Champions Tour Event in
Hoover.
Bellingrath Gardens Chry-
santhemums Extravaganza in
Mobile ranks fourth, followed
by Rogersville's Eagle Week-
end and Huntsville's Big
Spring Jam. The Outdoor
Alabama Expo is listed sev-
enth, followed by the exhibi-

Exploreum in Mobile.
Ninth on the list is the
Sunny King Criterium/
Cheaha Challenge bicycle
race in Anniston and Pied-
mont and 10th is the South-
ern Wildlife Festival in
Decatur.
The Alabama Bureau of
Tourism & Travel staff select-
ed the 10 from 1,300 events
listed in the 2005 Alabama
Calendar of Events, said
director Lee Sentell.
Riley encouraged Alabam-
ians to attend as many festi-
vals and special events during
the year as possible to show
their pride in the state and
increase the state's annual
$7.3 billion in travel revenues.
The industry accounts for
some 157,000 jobs in Ala-
bama, approximately 8.3 per-
cent of all non-agricultural
employment.
Alabama Speedweek, held
at Barber Motorsports Park in
Birmingham and the Talla-


dega Superspeedway Apr. 21-
30, is the highest rated event.
This event begins with the
AMA Superbike Champ-
ionship at Barber and contin-
ues with the final checkered
flag nine *days later at
NASCAR's Aaron's 499 in
Talladega.
The number two event, the
Red Snapper-World Champ-
ionship held from Apr. 21-
May. 21 in Orange Beach, is
the largest bottom-fishing
tournament held anywhere
in the world, with more than
$160,000 awarded to the top
25 anglers.
The number three event,
the Regions Champions Tour
Event in Hoover (previously
known as the Bruno's Classic),
was selected by Sports
Illustrated as the best event
on the PGA Champions Tour.
The spectacular new Ross
Bridge Golf Resort on the
Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail
hosts the event from May 1-7.
The Chrysanthemums


Extravaganza at Bellingrath
Gardens in Mobile, number
four, features more than 20
varieties of chrysanthemums
throughout the 65-acre gar-
den estate. The Chrysan-
themum Extravaganza will
take place Oct. 29-22.
Fifth is Eagle Weekend is
Jan. 20-22 at the Joe Wheeler
State Park in Rogersville.
Eagle Weekend participants
will visit Wheeler Wildlife
Refuge, several sites on the
North Alabama Birding Trail,
and Waterloo, known for its
concentration of wintering
eagles and fowl.
Big Spring Jam on Sept. 22-
24 at Big Springs Park in
downtown Huntsville is num-
ber six on the recommended
list. Big Springs Jam, has
attracted more than 2 million
people over the last 12 years.
Number seven on the list is
the Sept. 30 Outdoor Ala-
bama Expo at Oak Mountain
State Park in Pelham. From
rock climbing and archery,
to fishing and shooting
sports, the expo covers the
many outdoor activities
available in Alabama. The

'The Devil's Teeth' explores sharks of the Farallones


BYTERRI SCHLICHENMEYER
GUESTWRITER

Imagine this: you're sitting
on the beach on a gorgeous
summer day, a book in your
lap, sunscreen buttered on
your body, your behind plant-
ed in a pleasant shallow in the
sand. All the sudden, some-
one screams and people
stream out of the water like
angry ants from a disturbed
anthill.
"SHARK"
Only in Hollywood? Not
anymore, and in "The Devil's
Teeth" by Susan Casey, you'll
learn about one of the ocean's
most fierce predators.
Years ago, Susan Casey had
seen a TV program about the
Farallone Islands, just off the
coast of California. The
Farallones are intimidating
and isolated, harsh and most
unwelcoming.
'"Extremely high winds
bring cold temperatures' and
the danger of literally being
blown into the water. The
ocean current around the
-islands can be vicious and can
change in an instance. There
are treacherous rocks and not
just a few splinters of wrecked
boats. The Farallones were the
home of a few hardy scien-
tists; sea lions, seals, dozens of
species of birds ... and great
white sharks.
Casey kept thinking about
those sharks. What were they
like; up close? She thought
constantly of them, and she
dreamed of the predators.
She knew she had to get to the
Farallones somehow.
Easier said than done. For
decades, the U.S. Govern-
ment has severely restricted
access to the islands. Only a
few biologists could get per-
mission to stay on the


| ,: iga. ]ga- l:1.1.. 'nI ,[l -


Farallones, and even fewer
people got "day passes".
Casey kept asking, and was
eventually permitted to visit.
What she saw, and the stories
she heard, amazed her.
Casey was told stories of
"small" 12-foot sharks.
Twenty-footers, although not
common, were not unheard-
of. Think of your sofa; that's
about how wide a great white
shark could be, and an aver-
age-sized man might stand
inside its jaws with plenty of
headroom. Each year, great
whites hunted the seals and
sea lions that populated the
Farallones. They had been
known to happily hunt hu-
mans as well.
The good news: Sharks
were plentiful near the Far-
allones, and could be studied.
The bad news: The govern-


ment planned on halting the
shark studies.
One of the scientists had an
idea. Technically speaking,
while the "official" studies
were being discontinued on
the islands, no one specifical-
ly said that studies couldn't be
conducted from the Pacific
Ocean.
Casey rented a boat. What
followed was a throat-tight-
ening adventure that could
have ended in death.
While "The Devils Teeth" is
in reference to the Farallone
Islands, Casey's most interest-
ing stories are obviously
about the sharks.
Author Susan Casey's style
is funny at times, yet her awe
and respect of the big critters
is apparent, and for good rea-
son.
It's not everyday that you


meet up with an animal that
has a double row of razor-
sharp teeth, capable of tear-
ing a seal in half with one bite.
"The Devil's Teeth" will fas-
cinate environmentalists and
scientists, and believe it or
not, it's a perfect beach read.
Pick up a copy and take it on
vacation.
But stay on the sand. It's
safer there.

san Casey, Henry Holt, c.2005,

"I'm sick and tired," Steve
said, putting his gear away in
the tack room, "of having to
think up these darn New
Year's resolutions. I mean -
do I really need one?"
"I don't know," said Doc,
sitting on a hay bale.

Is Steve perfect yet?"
"A perfect what?" Dud
chimed in.
"OK, OK, go ahead and
laugh," said the tall cowboy.
"But you'll have to think up
some, too, won't you?"
"That's true," Ddc said. "I
thought about it, and this year
I'm going to quit smoking."
"You don't smoke, Doc."
"I know. That's why I think
I'll be able to keep my resolu-
tion."
"You'll have to do better
than that," Dud said. "I'm
going to learn the accordion."
We looked at him. "Accord-
ion?"
"Sure. You know. Myron

opera? Don't the names
Hohner and -Galanti echo
today with the same thrill as
when we hear Steinway and
Stradivarius?"
"No."
"Well, I'm gonna learn it
anyway."
"Say Dud, can you hold off
on that for about a month?"
Doc asked.
"Sure. I guess. Why?"
"So I can sell my house
before the property values
plummet."
Dud's face reddened in the
laughter there in the barn.

"Hey," said Steve. "I'll bet
ol' Dud'll be real good on that
accordion, too. I'll bet he
could make some money by
not playing it in several night
spots around here, too. Now
I've been thinking, and it
seems to me I should resolve
to knock off a few pounds this
year. I'll bet that's probably
the number-one resolution in
the country, too."
"I'm sure you're right," Doc
said. "Losing weight has to be
the most popular resolution.
Seems to me we must be pret-
ty lucky to live in a country
where our biggest personal
failing is eating too much
good food."

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


every month at the Women's
Resource Center office inVen-
ice. In January, however, the
course will be taken to Our
Mothers House to work with
this special group of women.
The WRCSC is branching
out in a different direction in
March. The WRCSC will again
partner with Manatee Com-
munity College to offer their
"Retirement Challenge" class.
This special Challenge Pro-
gram was first offered last
semester at the Manatee
Community College campus
in Venice and will be offered
again March 9-16.
The Retirement Challenge
is similar to the standard
Challenge Program for wom-
en in transition. It covers top-
ics such as coping with
change, family relationships,
loss/grief, financial manage-
ment and volunteerism, but
is modified slightly to meet
the needs of this special pop-
ulation. The goal, however, is
still the same in all the
WRCSC Challenge programs:
Women empowering women
to reach their emotional and
financial potential.

Moving to a new


home with your pet


Squash tournament


helps HSSC


GRACE JOYCE
PET COLUMNIST


Moving is a stressful
experience for everyone -
including your pet. But there
are a few things you can do
to help make it easier on
your pet.

1. Talk to your veterinarian a
few weeks before the move to
see whether medication for
nervousness or car sickness
might be in order.

2. Gather supplies including
food, water, medications,
medical records, bedding and
toys. It also helps to bring
along some of your dirty
laundry because the familiar
scent of these belongings is
comforting to your pet.

3. Keep your pet away from
activity during moving day.
Confine her to a room where
she feels safe and try as much
as possible not to disrupt her
daily routine.


4. Be sure your dog or cat has
a tag with your new phone
I,1 tb'U '.. 4


number or the number of a
friend so there will be some-
one to contact if your pet gets
lost during the move.

5. Unpack and settle in a bit
before turning your pet loose
in the house. Keep the doors
to your extra rooms closed
and slowly give your pet
access to them as they
become accustomed to their
new home.

6. Orient them to their new
surroundings by placing their
favorite bed or cushion in the
same place as it was in your
old home, like at the foot of
your bed. Put food, water
bowls and toys in familiar
containers and keep in simi-
lar configurations or rooms.

7. If you have a dog, walk him
around the house, yard and
block. If you have a cat, sit
quietly and pet her, preferably
while sitting in a familiar
chair. Provide a place for your
cat to hide and make sure
she's eating, drinking and
using her litter box as she
usually does.
Patience is very important
when moving a pet, and with
extra love and a little reassur-
ance, your pets will adjust
quickly to their newhome.

'Swinging Sundays'are back


Keyboardist Don Riddell with Sherrell McCants on bass and Bev Gerety on vocals performing
last year at Venice United Church of Christ. They'll hold open jazz jams at UCC 7-9 p.m. the sec-
ond and fourth Sundays at Venice UCC January through March.


The Don Riddell Group hosts jazz jams the sec-
ond and fourth Sunday from January through
March at Venice United Church of Christ. ,


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

If you can dance, sing, jam
or just want to relax and enjoy
some great American music,
'then get out your calendar
and take this down. Sunday
evening jazz jams are back
again for the fourth consecu-
tive year at Venice United
Church ofChrist.
S Jan.- 8 kicks off the first
SSwingin' Sunday jam, 7-9
p.m. at Venice UCC, at 620 E.
SShamrock Blvd., just south of
SU.S. 41 Bypass.
All musicians capable of
jamming are welcome to sit
in with the band, said band
leader Don. Riddell. Audi-
ence goers may want to get
there early to save a seat as it
gets busy when the finger-
snappin', toe-tappin' rhy-
thms begin. There is no
adi mission charge, but a five
Dollar donation is wel-
comed. Snacks and soft
( drinks are available for pur-
, chase.


Led by classically trained
keyboardist Riddell. Venice
UCC's music director, the
core group will once again
include his wife Bev Gerety,
former Venice Little Theatre
actor and VP and bassist
Sherrell McCants, who hails
from New York City where he
played with Chick Corea and
Art Blakey. McCants has
played in the Sarasota-
Bradenton area with his own
group for more than a
decade.
Performing again this sea-
son with Riddell are area,
musicians Jim Brenner on
trombone and Art Seigel on
drums. Riddell worked with
Seigel in the '80s around
Sarasota.
Riddell and Gerety played
regular gigs as a duo called
"Two For The Road" at Fat
Cats before it closed. They still
play the country club circuit.
The overall style is a blend of
swing, jive and boogie for din-
ing, dancing and night-club
entertainment. Gerety, from


up-state New York, has a
background in theater, her
specialty having been musi-
cal comedy. She's performed
regularly on both sides of the
Atlantic. In 1998 she teamed
up'with Riddell. They eventu-
ally married.
Riddell started in England,
becoming a Licentiate of the
Royal Academy of Music in

JAN. 8, 2006

BYJOHNW.KELLAM
SPECIALTOTHESUN


About 2 p.m. Thursday,
Dec. 8, when I returned from
a Rotary meeting, an alligator
we've come to refer to as
"Ralph" was lying in the mid-
dle of our street near our dri-
veway.
He was soaking up the heat
from the pavement and from
the sun above. I stopped my
car 50-60 yards away from
him. Ralph got up and pro-
ceeded to walk up our drive-
way.
About 15-20 feet from our
front door, he laid down again
facing straight toward our
front door. Then Ralph got up
again and moved forward -
right up to the door (his
nose/snout must have been 6
inches from the door) ... I
called a neighbor across the
street.
He came out and a few
more people gathered. Ralph,
after maybe 5-10 minutes at
the door's edge, got up and
moved in behind the shrub-
bery outside and just under
our. dining room windows
(near our garage door).... he
stayed there at least one-half
to three-quarters do an hour.
(My wife arrived home when
Ralph was at the front door -
we're both happy she wasn't
home at the time.) I called
Florida Fish and Wildlife -


the alligator emergency line
- to report it.
Ralph poked his snout out
of the shrubbery, then
emerged, crossing our drive-
way directly in front of our
garage door and went into the
shrubbery there, where he
remained for about 5-10 min-
utes. Then he gradually
worked his way through that
shrubbery toward the west
side of our house, and came
out between our house and a
neighbor's, making his way to
our lake. The whole, ordeal
may have taken an hour and a
half.
The trapper
He had a boom box vith a
tape of baby alligator noises
- to use as a lure to get the
gator to come to him. He also
had a sturdy fishing rod with
braided nylon 200 pound test
line. We followed him to the
water's edge behind our lanai.
He turned the tape on (vol-
ume high) with baby alligator
noises.
Ralph by now was sunning
himself on the west bank of
our lake within full view. The
moment Ralph heard the alli-
gator sounds, he slid into the
lake and began swimming
our way. The trapper a
large husky man waited for
the right moment, then cast
the line in the direction of
Ralph. He caught him on the
first cast; we watched the
trapper reel him in:
It took at least a half hour
-like deep-sea fishing with a
huge sail fish on the end of
the line. By the time Ralph
was on shore, both he and
Ralph were exhausted. The
trapper said at one point dur-
ing the struggle with Ralph
that this alligator was really.
too big to be using a fishing
rod. When they're this large,
he said, a trap is used instead.
So, Ralph is gone. He mea-
sured 8 feet, 4 inches in
length. Besides my wife
Sandy and me, the spectators
were neighbors Josh
Greenspan, Brenda Shapiro
and Josh and Janna Kim. I
took photos, Josh Greenspan
helped the trapper drag
Ralph between their house
and ours to the trapper's pick-
up truck. Then the trapper
(Bo Davis), Josh Greenspan,
Josh, Kim and I lifted Ralph
into the back of the truck.
Sandy and I felt sad for the
gator, but relieved better
him than us ... He is what
FWC calls a nuisance alligator
... He was a threat to us and
everyone living in the imme-
diate neighborhood, as the
gator would on a regular basis
travel between our homes
going from one lake to anoth-
er.
