Pilot honored for 60 years



of aviation achievements


In 1945 Chuck Mason
flew his first solo flight

instruction. In

the prestigious Master

for more than 50 years
of flight without a

Venice pilot Chuck Ma-

the globe as a NASA engi-

stations and testing equip-

the air that would allow John
Glenn and fellow astronauts
to explore space, land on the
moon and return to Earth
safely.
An avid pilot, Mason is on
his sixth airplane. He not
only flies them, he has built
one of his own.
He was recognized by the
FAA recently, but not for
those achievements. It was

Harsh words and criti-
cisms were dispensed in bulk
Thursday night as the public
got its first glimpse of what
could be South County's new
public housing complex.
Venice Housing Authority
members and its executive
director escaped most of the
complaints at the workshop
about redevelopment of
Grove Terrace Apartment
Complex.
Instead, fingers were being
pointed at charitable organi-
zations and local govern-
ments for failing to help VHA
acquire additional land in
order to expand the amount
Sof low-income housing in the
city. The most recent proposal
would only amount to a net
gain of 22 low-income apart-
ment units 50 to 72 in
the past 35 years.
"Shame on the communi-
ty, shame on the Gulf Coast
(Community) Foundation of
Venice, shame on the county
and shame on the city fathers
for nor st,-ppii;g up," said Don
O'Connell; a 35-year city resi-
dent who did legal work for
VHA in the 1970s. He also
owns property neighboring
Grove Terrace.
"The community has let
this housing authority down
for 30 years."
Representatives from Sara-
sota County and GCCFV were
surprised at the criticism
when asked for comment the
next day.
According to them, VHA

years."

was never turned down for
additional land assistance
because the housing authori-
ty never even applied.
"It's never been an issue,"
said Marjorie A. Floyd,
GCCFV vice president for
marketing/communications.
"(VHA) didn't ask for it, and
(GCCFV's land) was never
intended for low-income
housing. They have never ap-
plied for it."
Redevelopment plans
Audience members criti-
cized the city for failing to
manage and appoint strong
members to the VHA board.
Until the most recent board
was appointed more than two
years ago, every previous
board had "incompetent"
members that allowed the
facility to become run down,

Venice East owners eyeing big profits


BY ROGER UTWON
BUSINESS! COLUMNIST


Upscale properties are
planned by some of the
biggest builders in the coun-
try who are bidding for Venice
East Golf Club.
With offers exceeding $12
million and more interest be-
ing expressed by potential
bidders, the 53-acre golf
course is in demand.
Although the course
stands on 53 acres, there are
roads, sidewalks and infra-
structure, leaving around 51
acres for development. Plans
call for around 130 homes
expected to be starting from


$600,000.
Toll Brothers, builders of
the The Oaks in Sarasota:
Westfield Builders, which has
planned developments for
Laurel Road and East Venice
Avenue: international build-
ers Taylor Woodrow, which is
completing high rise Beleza

involved in the sale of the
abandoned lots in North Port,
have submitted bids.
Other national bidding
companies include Beazer

Asked to comment on this
information, Club President
Frank Mack responded, "Yes,
it is correct and I understand
there are at least two more.
We will know more next week
when we meet with our attor-
ney."
The next step according to
Mack is for board members to

THIS MONTH IN VENICE HISTORY


STAFF REPORT


Developers today are often
unilaterally criticized for no
other reason than they are
developers. While the man on
the street will revile a develop-
er, he ignores the bankers that
lend the money, the carpen-
ters, electricians, masons and
plumbers who also play a part
in land development.
At one time a developer
could make windfall profits. If
he or his firm chose to, land
could be stripped, row houses
built and profits ihad'4. Th:rc
problems generated by such
development fell on raxpay-
ers and the community as a
whole.
Not all developers worked
that way. But those who did
helped paint an image that is
hard to shake off.
The pendulum that once
swung in the direction of the
developer has now swung the
other way.
SToday there are so many
restrictions on land develop-
ment that land costs have
skyrocketed. The burden falls


on the buyer, especially the
family with a moderate in-
come who must now pay
higher costs for moderate
housing.
The first major develop-
ment to come into the city of
Venice in recent years was
Capri Isles.
Capri became the first area
developer to offer the city
something in return for the

Shaping the future of East Venice Avenue


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

Depending on who you
talk to, the area north of East
Venice Avenue past Jacaranda
Boulevard is either paradise
or a golden development op-
portunity.
Whether it can be both is
the question Sarasota County
is trying to answer through a
series of planning workshops
while development is under a
six-month moratorium. The
most recent one was held Sat-
urday at the Nokomis Com-
'munity Center.

PLANNING WRAP-UP
The next East Venice Avenue
Planning initiative meeting,
which is projected to be the
final one, will include a survey
of participants allowing them
to rank their preferences for
the area's future. It will be
held Feb. 4 at a time and
place to be announced.


More than 60 people repre-
senting diverse interests at-
tended the workshop. And it's
that diversity residents on
large tracts, developers, other
business owners, affordable-
housing advocates and envi-
ronmentalists that will
make the task difficult, ac-
cording to engineer Steve
Suau.
Most of the land in the
planning area bounded by


Jacaranda Boulevard to the
west, River Road to the east,
Interstate 75 to the north and
East Venice Avenue to the
south is currently zoned
Open Use Estate 1, which
allows no more than one
house per 5 acres. But the
area is bookended by devel-
opments both .actual and
planned at its eastern and
western borders, with rumors
of more in the works.
And the four-laning of East
Venice Avenue is already on
the radar, though it's not in
the formal planning stages
and isn't funded.
For several private proper-
ty owners who participated in
the workshop, that means the
writing is on the wall.
"I bought in the country to
live in the country, not to have
the city move out to me," one
said, adding, "I know we're
fighting a losing battle. We're
being forced out whether we
want it or not."
Another said by way of
explaining why he was at the
workshop, "I know its going
to get bought out and I just
want to get he most money
for my property."
Still time
"Inevitable" was a word
other property owners used
as well, and they pointed the
finger at the county for desig-
nating much of the planning
area as Low Density Res-
idential still no more than
two ho ses per acre on the

comments from an audience member at a planning workshop for

county's future land use map.
But county commissioner
Shannon Staub, who was at
the workshop, tried to reas-
sure them that the area's fut-
ure is still up in the air, and
that they really will play a
large role in determining it:
"You can either like it or
don't like it," she said, "but at
least it's an opportunity to set
how the development goes."
Key to that, according to
John Lambie, director of the,
Florida House Institute for
Sustainable Development, is


to "get clear where you want
people and where you don't
want them."
He emphasized the need
to take a long-range view of
the area. !'We have a hard
time getting beyond two- to
three-year planning," Lambie
said.
But he also pointed out
that people whose, property
in the area has already been
rezoned have vested rights
and could not be forced to
comply with later-adopted
standards.

"The horse is out of the
barn in some areas," said
Suau, former y the county's
stormwater manager.
With about two months
left before the moratorium
expires, however, Staub said
there is still time for property
owners to make their voices
heard, and she has asked
county staff to make an extra
effort to boost attendance at
the next workshop.
"I think this is so special,"
she said. "It's an opportunity I
don't want them to miss."

Laurel Park

recreation building

gets extra money


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


The Laurel Park Recreation
Building is going to get a new
roof.
The building is currently
undergoing an overhaul and
expansion and during the
work the contractor, DeLes-
line Construction Inc., found
the roof of the old building
needed work.
"They found this when
they were doing the attach-
ment," said County Adminis-
trator Jim Ley. "It is what
happens when you do work
of this sort."
Ley got the board's ap-
proval Wednesday to make a
contract amendment for:
$27,419.70 for the work.
The work includes re-
roofing the existing building
and tearing down an addi-
tional wall.
Commissioners agreed to
the work and were pleased'
the job is getting done right,
they said.
More money
The board also approved
an effort to reinvest some of
its money to earn an estimat-
ed $250,000 per year on its
investments.
-County Director of Fi-
nancial Services Pete Rams-
den said the county would
change the way the county
invests some of its $700 mil-
lion portfolio into securities,
which earn high interest rates
and new investments.
Clerk of Circuit Court Kar-
en Rushing, who advises 'the
county on its finances, said
this is another method to
earn more money.
The small amount of mon-
ey is based on the very low risk
to the county through Wa-
o ovia, its investment bank.
S"It is a little more money,
But every little bit helps,"
Rushing said.
Little campers
The board also approved
$58,000 for the Adopt-A-
Camper program to help chil-
dren attend various summer
camps for a reduced fee or
free of charge.
Carolyn Brown, of the
county Parks and Recreation
department, said the entire
countywide summer program
costs the county $548,000,
and the money approved
Tuesday will go to help up to
150 children attend the pro-
gram.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson pulled this consent
agenda item to learn more
about the program and to
get a more detailed explana-
tion of the costs.
"I just wanted to know
where the costs go and what
I, ...


portion you are looking for
us today," Patterson said.
Brown said the parks
department seeks about 10
percent of the overall pro-
gram budget to help provide
grants for children who
would normally be unable to
afford to participate: The
grant is done on a sliding
scale based on need, from
partial to full coverage of the
costs.
Not unanimous
On another consent item
Tuesday, commissioner
Shannon Staub let her fellow
board members know that
the vote that brought about
the dissolution of the Sara-
sota County Advisory Com-
mission on the Status of
Women was not unanimous.
The student member of
the advisory commission op-
posed the issue, and is now
currently working to get a
nucleus to create a stand-
alone board or women's
alliance.
"This is an incredible per-
son who wants to do this on
her own," Staub said.
A letter from Jerry Woelfel,
chairman of the commis-
sion, accompanied the agen-
da item saying that it was
best toi dissolve and become
an independent organization.


Height Overlay to be expanded


A packed planning commission agenda
also includes two large-scale developments
in North Venice, Habitat homes and
a new design district of U.S. 41 Business.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Residents calling for a
three-story cap on building
heights will be pacified Tues-
day as an expanded Height
Overlay District is up for ap-
proval by the Venice Planning
Commission..
The. proposed 35-feet cap
on building heights would
apply south of Narvaezi
Street, north of Granada
Avenue, east of Park Boule-
vard and west of Harbor
Drive. In summer 2005, city
council approved the crea-
tion of a height district west
of Armada Road along Ven-
ice Avenue leading to Venice
Beach.
Council members have
already started receiving
e-mails about the proposed
ordinance.
"I definitely feel my rights
will be infringed upon and


my property will be dramati-
cally devalued probably
up to 50 percent- if a 35-foot
height overlay district is
passed.... This 35-foot height
requirement is artificial and
arbitrary and could open the
city of Venice to costly litiga-
tion," wrote Kevin Klasing,
owner of the villas at 501 W
Venice Ave.
The proposal will go to
city council for final vote.
The meeting starts at 1:30
p.m. in council chambers at
city hall.

Nokomis CHATs about the uninsured


The Community Health Action Team met in
Nokomis to discuss creative solutions to make
health insurance accessible.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER
It's not that the homeless
don't work; most of them do,
say experts. But getting med-
ical insurance coverage is
another story.
Most can't afford it. And
small business owners who
can afford it are making the
choice not to, for themselves
and their employees, because
it cuts into their profit margin.
So, why should you care?
Because the uninsured end
up at more expensive hospi-
tals that are legally bound to
take care of their ailments
and pass the costs on to you,
say practitioners.
On Tuesday a community
forum was held that focused
on the growing number of
uninsured families' in Sara-
sota and Charlotte counties.
The meeting attended
mostly by community leaders
and health care workers and
sparse on residents -was the
second in a series of commu-
nity discussions by the
Community Health Action
Team about ways to improve
health and access to rhedical
care for the uninsured.
Dr. Duncan Finlay and
Sarah Gorman, with the
Healthy Start Coalition & The
Community Alliance, led the
discussion and focus groups.
From the meeting, they'll
develop action plans that will
be presented to the commu-
nity at a later date.
Finlay laid out an alarming
set of statistics to make his
case that something needs to


be done sooner than later.
An estimated 45,000 resi-
dents of Sarasota County and
21,000 in Charlotte County
are uninsured, he told the 35
people in the audience.
Eighty percent of the unin-
sured are from working fami-
lies. Most of them hold full-
time jobs; half are self-
employed or work for a small
business.
"The loss of employer-
sponsored insurance is the
greatest factor in the growing
number of uninsured per-
sons," Finlay said.
Medical debt is now the
cause of nearly 50 percent of
all bankruptcies in the United
States, he said.
To show there is hope,
Finlay is presenting local suc-
cess stories at each of the
community meetings.
Mom and pop.
One ray of hope is a new
program just getting its start
at Sarasota Memorial Hos-
pital.
Dr. Frank Burns, medical
director, and Dr. Gary Hick-
erson presented a relatively
new plan for affordable
health coverage aimed at
small businesses. The Varsity
Health Charter Plan, offered
by Sarasota Nlemorial Health
Care Systems, was created
with this target consumer in
mind: the single mother with
three kids.,
Participant groups are
mostly mom-and-pop busi-
ness owners with as few as
two employees a group
that makes up a large portion

Finding medical insurance coverage for the estimated 45,000 uninsured Sarasota County residents was the topic of the
Community Health Action Team's meeting at the Nokomis Community Center last week.


of the uninsured population.
Launched in April 2004, the
plan today has 283 members
and is shooting for a goal of
1,000 by year's end. It began
earning a profit in August,
Burns said.
The secret to its success,
according to Burns, is it's
exempt from most state
insurance regulations.
A unique feature of the
program is a pharmacy care
manager who helps employ-
ees stretch available dollars.
To emphasize preventive
measures, mandatory em-
ployee attendance is required
for the initial orientation arid
self-care seminar.


In addition to photo ID
cards that help prevent fraud,
the Varsity plan's biggest
attraction is its 40-50 percent
lower premiums. The plan is
able to insure a male under 25
years of age for as little as $60
per month, and a female 50-
54 years of age for as little as
$208 per month for business-
es with only two or three
employees. Rates are even
lower for businesses with four
or more employees.
The good news, Hickerson
said, is so far, every group that
has signed up for coverage
has renewed, which he said
Means business owners feel
they are getting value from


Sthe plan.
"We've been able to craft a
plan we think makes sense for
our community," Bums said.
"So far, we've only turned
away one group and that was
a bunch of CPAs (who earn
too'much)."
"What we continue to see,"
Hickerson said, "isthe business
owner who says,'If I was going
to do a medical plan, I'd do this
one.' They're making the
choice not to purchase insur-
ance because it cuts into their
profits. That's what we face."
Finlay said local solutions
like the Varsity Plan are possi-
ble when the right people are.
:motivated to act. He hopes


that bringing groups together,
like the Community Alliance
and the Community Health
Improvement Partnership,
will increase dialogue on
solutions to help the insured
and galvanize community
support.
Three community CHAT
groups in Englewood, North
Port and the Laurel/Osprey/
Nokomis areas meet monthly
to promote health and well
being among residents in
those communities. For more

of Grove Terrace. Conse-
quently, VHA is attempting to
redevelop on its 6.6 acres next
to Hatchett Creek and expand
from 50 apartment units to
144 units.
The application for Low-
Income Housing Tax Credit
financing, which is due Feb. 1,
is for 72 apartment units.
VHAs plans to try for the re-
maining 72 units next year
will require exceeding the
city's maximum density limits
and another round of tax
credit approvals.
"This is the right thing to
do, and hopefully with the
community support, it will go
through," VHA chair Richard
Appell said.
O'Connell said the city
needs to be held accountable
to the original legal agree-
ment that formed VHA more
than 35 years ago. In it, the
city promised that up to 150
low-income housing units
could be built.
Only 50 apartments were
ever built, and zoning rules
have changed to limit Grove
Terrace's density at 84 units.
VHA Executive Director
Peter Lopez, credited with
diggingVHA out of a financial
and management black hole
the past two years, said land
has always been the problem.
Without more land, the most
recent conceptual site plan is
the best option available, Lo-
pez said.
"I'm relatively optimistic,"
Lopez said. "It may not be.
utopia, but it will be damn
close."
Wanting GCCFV's land
Ever since GCCFV acquir-
ed 146 acres in North Venice
last summer, the requests for
land have been been flowing
into its office, according to
Floyd. Only about 60 acres is
buildable, and GCCFV has
been asked to donate three
times that amount.
But out of all these discus-
sions, only one organization
-GCCFV would not say who
I- actually filled out a grant
-request.
Even if VHA had applied

Mack admitted he was
surprised and shocked, as

favor.
His opinion was the pros-
pect of a return of $100,000 or
more for two $1,200 shares

The frontage ofVenice East

Chip Cornell, assistant vice president of Picerne Development Corporation, answered questions
from the public during a workshop that was held Thursday night to gather community input on
the proposed redevelopment of Grove Terrace Apartments, the only public housing complex in
South County. Picerne Development Corporation is the developer of the proposed project.


"I've never confused
low income with low
class. The most diffi-
cult low-income situa-
tion is when you're
surrounded by opu-
lence. It magnifies
everything."
--VHA Executive
Director Peter Lopez,
talking about Venice's
expensive homes.



for a land donation, it does
not appear as ifGCCFVwould
have given it serious consid-
eration.
Floyd said GCCFV's goal is
to award grants to causes that
lack other funding sources,
and government handles
low-income housing.
The second major reason:
GCCFV's land in NorthVenice
was never intended to be for
low-income housing.
"We did not purchase the
property to create low-
income housing." Floyd said.
"We purchased it for rorlang
families, who were being


pushed out of the market. We
never set out to address low-
income housing."
Lopez has often pointed
out that low-income housing
is for working families also,
and offers the example of
Grove Terrace residents who
work full-time at PGT In-
dustries, 'the hospital and as
accountants.
The combination of a lack
of rental communities, high-
priced homes and single-par-
ent incomes is just too much
for some to afford "regular"
housing inVenice.
"I've never confused low
income with low class," Lopez
said at the workshop. "The
most difficult low-income sit-
uation is when you're sur-
rounded by opulence. It mag-
nifies everything."
Asking for county help
Deputy County Adminis-
trator Susan Scott said VHA
was never "turned down" for
59 acres of land at the north-
western intersection of Laurel
Road and Interstate 75 in
NorthVenice.
One year ago, Lopez had
created a conceptual plan of
200 low-income townhouses,.
50 one-bedroom apartments
for, th elderly and 50 for
those with special needs on
the county-owned land. The


county says talks never went
beyond casual discussions,
while VHA chair Richard
Appell's memoryis the county
"denied" the request for land.
Residents in Venice are
even more sore after watching
the county's partnership with
Sarasota Housing Authority
and city of Sarasota flourish.
That city's housing authority
is on the verge of approving a
three-party agreement to
jointly redevelop 52 acres of
public housing and at least
500 low-income units.
Sarasota county and city
governments each will con-
tribute $100,000 toward the
master design plan, and
Sarasota Housing Authority
$50,000. SHA plars to apply
for tax credit financing in
2007, much as VHA is this
year.
It's taken years to build this
relationship, and plenty of
initiative by SHA and city
commissioners, Scott said.
VHA and city council need to
do the same, and Scott
encouraged them to schedule
a time to be put on a county
commission agenda.
"They've been very, very
proactive and methodical,"
Scott said. "That's part of the
reason why the county is so
in\olI'ed. ...It is building a
relationship."

REELING IN PAIN
Golkers and tennis players are not the only recreational athletes whose sports pose potential problems stemming
from repetitive motions. As it turns out, fly-fishermen may also experience maladies such as "fly-fishing elbow,"
"stooper's back," and "caster's shoulder." The fact is that fly-fishing can strain the body, as, fishermen typically
make several practice casts before actually hurling the fly into the water. The sport involves a repetitive motion
that loads the body's upper extremities and the trunk, much like sports such as tennis and golf. According to a
recent survey, 59 percent of the fishermen surveyed reported lower backpain. Saltwater fishermen had the highest
rates of shoulder and elbow pain, while trout fishermen'were most likely to report wrist pain.
Let us help you be stronger and less prone to injuries. Chiropractic doctors find the source of your aches and pain
and help eliminate it. At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER, we feel the key factors to
health are nutrition, exercise, peace of mind, reduce stress, adequate rest, and a sound nervous system. We're
located at 1214-C Venice Ave., East, where we have complete facilities and equipment available to determine if
your condition may be helped through chiropractic. Call us at 941-412-3800 to schedule an appointment. We offer
massage therapy and have 2 licensed massage therapists on staff.
P.S. Fly-fishermen should understand that they need to get themselves into shape to avoid muscle aches and pain.

Government closes for national holiday
All Sarasota County Government offices, including libraries,
will be closed Monday, Jan. 16, to observe the national '
holiday that celebrates the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr.
Sarasota County Area Transit will be on a normal bus
schedule.
The collection schedule for solid waste, yard waste and
recyclables will not be affected by the holiday and remain on
the regular pick-up schedule with no interruption of collec-
tion.
Public workshop set for Dona and
Roberts Bay watershed project Jan. 21
Sarasota County will host a public workshop Saturday, Jan.
21, to discuss strategies for protecting Dona and Roberts:
bays in Nokomis. The workshop will take. place from 9:30
a.m.-noon at the Laurel Nokomis School cafeteria, 1900 E.
Laurel Road, Nokomis.
The format will include a presentation by area scientists
and county staff, followed by group discussions to learn
residents' views on bay issues. Speakers will include
representatives of Mote Marine Research Laboratory,
Sarasota County Environmental Services, Southwest Florida
Water Management District and the Charlotte Harbor National
Estuary Program.
Dona and Roberts bays are small estuaries whose water-
sheds cover approximately 90 square miles. Decades of
drainage projects for mosquito control and agriculture have
significantly enlarged the area draining to the bays, increas-
ing the amount of fresh water and sediment and damaging
bird and marine life habitat. The Jan. 21 workshop will
discuss ways that local county government and residents
can work together to improve conditions in the bays.
For more information, contact the Sarasota County Call
Center at (941) 861-5000 and ask for Water Resources.

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


KSCB earns
President's Circle Award
Keep Sarasota County
Beautiful was honored with a
President's Circle Award at
Keep America Beautiful's
52nd National Conference in
Orlando Dec. 8.
The national organization
lauded Keep Sarasota County
Beautiful for attending ongo-
ing training; its active board;

water distribution projects in
Nokomis and a seventh in
Laurel.
Some wanted to know why
it has taken so long for the
county to obtain bids for
design and construction. An-
other expressed disbelief that
completing all the hookups
could take so long.
MacFarlane estimated that
the last lot will get water in
June 2009. The first could
receive it by the middle of
2006, he predicted.
Struggling
When MacFarlane report-
ed that construction bids dif-
fered for essentially the same
job in the Shore Road and Bay
Point neighborhoods, one
person in the audience ob-
jected.
"Why," he asked. "should I
pay a higher fee if something
went wrong in some other
part of town?"
"You have to understand
that the commissioners, for
whom we work, are con-
cerned," MacFarlane replied.
"We're struggling with these
higher estimates, too. We're
trying to bring this home in a
way that is fair to everyone. So
we're trying to have everyone
pay the same."
lames Christman, whose
Dona Drive home is in the
Colonia Lane Water Line
Extension Project, revealed
that he has tried on five differ-
ent occasions since 2003 to

and schedules of the projects,
with little success, he said.
His inquiries went to
County Administrator Jim
Ley, individual commission-
ers and the NCRAC. When,
last fall, he learned that 30
rights of way still needed to be
acquired, he admitted he
worried his home would
never be connected to a water
line.
In response to specific
questions from Christman
about bidders and their esti-
mates, Rouse and MacFarlane
explained that companies
from all 50 states can submit
bids via the Internet. The
county's review process, said
Rouse, documents the bid-
der's work history, financial
status and other pertinent
records. That added months
to the project's life. he said.
Shortfall
Nokomis and Laurel
homeowners learned early in
December that construction
bids to build water lines in
both communities came in
more than 75 percent higher
than the original estimates.
Residents of Nokomis have
been upset for weeks after
being advised that estimates
mailed to 715 of them last
April of a per-lot cost of $3,000
to $4,000 had risen to $6,100
to $7,400 per lot by Decem-
ber. About 1,600 homes with-
in the revitalization area and
adjacent neighborhoods are
affected. All are south of
Laurel Road, and extend east-
ward to Pinebrook Road.
Owners of 160 lots in
Laurel learned two weeks
later that their costs to hook
up were also rising. The in-
crease in Laurel was from
$7,000 to $10,000 per lot.
That created a shortfall of
about $136,000 required to
start twnvo projects.


index; and calculating a cost-
benefit ratio.
Keep Sarasota County was
also singled out for engaging
volunteers to take greater
responsibility for their com-
munity's environment, said
the organization's manager,
SandraWashington.
"Last year more than 4,000
local volunteers logged more
than 15,000 hours," said


Washington. "They provided
real solutions to problems
like improper disposal of lit-
ter and other community
blights by joining initiatives
like our local cleanup, our
adopt-a-road programs and
cigarette litter prevention
test."

Tourist tax up despite


red tide, hurricanes


Decent exposure

I R.


BOB ARDREN
PELICAN PRESS


Although superficially it
might appear 2005's year-
long red tide outbreak, com-
bined with a record-breaking
hurricane season, would dev-
astate Sarasota's tourist econ-
omy, tourist tax collections
actually rose more than 5 per-
cent, to $7,317,000.
The nearly 5.5 percent in-
crease number for the fiscal
year ending Sept. 30 was re-
leased by the Sarasota County
Tax Collector's Office last
week. It is not absolutely final
because of a change-over in
the operation's computer ac-
counting system, but only a
small change for the month of
September could be expect-
ed.
The previous fiscal year
collections totaled $6,932,931
and the prior year was
$5,983,804. Only April and
August last year had lower tax
collections than the previous
year.
Of the 3-percent tax on
short-term rentals, 1 cent is


used for beach maintenance,
a half cent goes to support the
arts, eight-tenths of a cent is
designated for promotion
and seven-tenths of a cent is
reserved for beach renourish-
ment.
Sarasota Convention and
Visitors Bureau Executive Di-
rector Virginia Haley said,
"We had a great summer.
May, June and July were vdry
strong this past year.
"In part, that's because the
month of May is now part of
summer rather than August.
And that's because kids are
back in school in August most
places now the effects of
changes in school year.
"This year we kicked off
strong summer ads in April
because of that shift," Haley
explained. "In the old days we
would have done that in June.
Obviously we're going to do
same thing next year.
"We're also going to hit
Ohio to try to help our sum-
mer season next year because
that's still one place they don't
go back to school till after
Labor Day."

The South Venice Civic Association's sixth annual expo was a smashing success, according to Development Director Ellen
Hillstrom. She said the SVCA Community Center was crowded from the time the event opened at 9 a.m., and people were
still streaming in at 2 p.m., only an hour before the expo ended.

Some North Port 'canal' lots are high and dry


BY SHELLY DRAPER
STAFF WRITER

If any potential new aban-
doned lot owners decide to
try to walk on water, they'll
need to find it first.
The ground around some
of the abandoned lots de-
scribed on the Fisher Auction
Company site as canal prop-
erties is pretty dry.
For example, one on
Guttenberg Avenue in North
Port is designated as "canal,"
yet actually has more of a
greenway space behind it
than a waterway.
"Absolutely nothing could
float back there and the idea
that there once was water is a
bit of a stretch," said North
Port PrudentialVillage Realtor
Shannon Moore, who has
been trying to work with
interested individuals for the
upcoming city of North Port
and Sarasota County lot auc-
tion.
The city and county will
split proceeds of the more
than 1,900 lots from the up-
coming auction. The lots
come from landowners who
have abandoned the proper-
ties and haven't paid the taxes
for more than five years.
Moore said she spoke to
the appraiser hired by Sara-
sota County, Roger Hettema
of Sarasota, about the condi-
tion of the lots.
"Mr. Hettema stated he
wasn't able to actually go and
see every lot, so he based his
appraisals on descriptions
and comparably lots in the
area," she said. "People that
are reading the descriptions
provided by the auction com-
pany and driving out to take a
look at property are discover-
ing real discrepancies."
Investor Basil Stetson of


SRQ Development planned to
do most of his research and
bidding online, but recently
questioned the accuracy of
the information provided by
Fischer Auction. Frustrated
by myriad mistakes, Stetson
complained to county com-
missioners about the process.
"Based upon the my obser-
vations so far, I question their
(Fisher Auction Company)
ability to assimilate and uti-
lize current (Internet) tech-
nology," Stetson wrote in an
e-mail to Sarasota County
officials.
When Fisher Auction
Company was contacted,
Chief Executive Officer Louis
B. Fisher III emphasized the
need for prospective buyers
to take bidding seriously.
"You won't buy a home
without looking at it," Fisher
said. "It's even more impor-
tant that 'anyone thinking
about bidding on a lot take
due care, go and inspect the
property."
Two weeks ago, Moore dis-
covered the price of some lots
without water, electricity and
other amenities jumped from
$13,000 to $30,000 overnight.
Fisher Auction Company call-
ed -the mistake a "sorting
error" and corrected the on-
line site to reflect the higher
prices.
Employees at the North
Port Fisher Auction head-
quarters will take any pro-
spective bidder out to inspect
property.
The auction will occur in
two phases: a primarily on-
line auction from Jan. 19
through Feb. 20, followed on
Tuesday, Feb. 28, by alive auc-
tion to be held in the North
Port Performing Arts Center
at North Port High School.

Affordable housing efforts ignore manufactured homes


A nonprofit trust plans to build 3,000 affordable
homes for working class families, but there is no
indication manufactured homes are under
consideration.


BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

When Southwest Florida
.officials discuss how to pro-
vide badly needed affordable
housing for young families,
service sector employees and
the elderly in upscale com-
munities such as Sarasota
County, rarely if ever is
manufactured housing on the
Agenda.
In fact, the county histori-
cally discouraged the devel-
opment of manufactured
home communities in the
1970s when a "mobile home
district" was added to the
zoning code that limited den-
sity to only five units per acre,
and effectively drove up the
potential cost of each new
unit.
One of the reasons manu-
factured homes are rarely
considered in local discus-
sions is that most decision
makers are unfamiliar with
construction upgrades the
industry has implemented
since Hurricane Andrew de-
molished Homestead and
Florida City in 1992.
Structures assembled in
Florida factories today are far
different than the old-fash-
ioned mobile homes some
people still refer to as "tin
cans." They are safe and capa-
ble of withstanding hurricane
winds that would blow the
roofs off many older site-built
houses.
Yet the stigma that attach-
es to manufactured homes
was reinforced on Aug. 14,
2004, when Hurricane Char-
ley tore through Port Char-
lotte, Punta Gorda and Ar-
cadia, demolishing thou-
sands of mobile homes that
predated Hurricane Andrew.
Not what it used to Ibe
An Affordable Housing
Study Commission report re-
leased by the Florida Housing
Finance Corporation in 2003
should have opened some
local eyes when it endorsed
the use of manufactured
housing as a viable affordable


housing alternative.
It supported, what many
influential organizations the
Ford Foundation, Consumers
Union, Millennial Housing
Commission, National Asso-
ciation of Home Builders and
the Joint Center on Housing at
Harvard University among
them-have recently conclud-
ed: Manufactured housing is a
safe affordable housing alter-
native.
"Manufactured housing is
not what it used to be," said
Jamie Ross, the affordable
Housing director for 1000
Friends of Florida. "Units that
meet 1996 federal codes and
are installed according to
1998 state tie-down standards
don't present a problem.
People can afford them."
Manufactured home pric-
es vary, depending on the
materials, square footage and
amenities. On average, they
cost about half of the price of
a site-built home and range in
price anywhere from $20,000
for a small, simple model to
$100,000, or more, for a multi-
section unit.
According to Ross, mis-
guided perceptions about liv-
ing space have been a major
contributor to the affordable
housing crisis.
"They are out of whack,"
she said. "While 1,600 square
feet is plenty of space, many
families have been led to
believe 2,500 isn't enough. It's
just crazy."
In the mix
What has Sarasota County
officials scrambling is the
realization that skyrocketing
housing costs will soon drive
law enforcement officers,
plumbers, teachers, conve-
nience store, hospital, restau-
rant. and supermarket and
government workers out of
the community.
The overwhelming majori-
ty of people who live in the
county could not afford to
buy a new or an existing
home at today's prices, even if
they wanted to, and the eco-
-nomic forces that produced


this imbalance have done lit-
tle to correct the situation. So,
the community is at risk of
losing its work force.

tured homes
were not pre-
viouslyseen as
safe from
storms," com-
-, p missioner
Shannon
S Staub said.
"That'sthepri-
Staub mary reason
they haven't
been a topic in affordable
housing talks. If they meet hur-
ricane codes, we need to make
stre they are in the mix."
According to Staub, the
commission briefly consid-
ered manufactured housing
as an affordable housing op-
tion and heard from an in-
dustry representative before
it updated the county's com-
prehensive plan.


"I think, the commission
would be interested in con-
sidering it now," she said.
Commis-
sioner Jon
Thaxton
agrees.
"Many of the
4. newer manu-
fracturedd
homes actu-
ally survived
S hurricanes
Tha*ton better than
older, site-
built homes," he said. "This
subject will have to come up
at the commission level. It
could be a significant piece of
the affordable housing puz-
zle.' '
Unavoidable
What Staub, Thaxton and
many others now appear to
recognize is that manufac-
tured housing even when it
was built to pre-Hurricane


Andrew mobile home stan-
dards provided affordable
housing for thousands of full-
time and part-time county
residents.
"There's no question about
that," he said. "I don't see how
we can avoid a discussion
about it. There's no way we
can turn our backs now that
it's safe housing. The parks
have a sense of community,
unlike subdivisions where
people don't even know their
neighbors."
It remains to be seen
whether manufactured hous-
ing could fit into the ambi-
tious plans recently announc-
ed by a nonprofit organiza-
tion that reportedly wants to
build 3,000 "affordable"
homes with the county's fi-
nancial help for working
class families over the next 10
years.
The commission has ap-
proved an initial $250,000


contribution for the Com-
munity Housing Trust, which
is laying the groundwork to
build single-family homes,
townhouses and condomini-
um apartments for families of
four with annual incomes of
less than $55,900.
Trust documents indicate
$200,000 houses would be
made available to families
who earn between 85 and 95
percent of median income,
$165,000 townhouses for
those between 70 and 85 per-
cent, and $115,000 condo-
miniums for those between
50 and 75 percent.
This year, the county com-
mission is expected to give
the trust a much bigger finan-
cial shot in the arm when it
donates about $10 million
from the sale of North Port
lots that have been seized for
nonpayment of property tax-
es. The money would finance
the purchase of land.

Studies show slow drivers most dangerous


he message seems to be getting through
to the Florida Department of Trans-
portation officials: Traffic engineers
contend raising speed limits reduce highway
crashes and deaths.
Federal regulations require the state to
conduct engineering studies of all highways
before speed limits are posted. FDOT has just
announced that a study of Interstate 10 has
prompted it to raise the speed limit along the
state's northern border to 70 mph, except
near Pensacola and Jacksonville. Safety is the
reason given for increasing the speed.
But FDOT still is hampered by legislation
that sets an apparently arbitrary speed limit
of 70 mph throughout the state. It is possible
this decision could cost Florida its federal
highway funds.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1989, in a


case involving Nevada's federal funds, that
the federal government has the right to con-
trol highway speeds under the Constitution's
Commerce Clause. And federal regulations
require all states to base highway speeds on
the average speed of 85 percent of drivers in
free-flowing traffic.
Based on FDOT's responses to the Sun pa-
pers, the 70 mph speed limit on 1-75, is not
based on the engineering studies required by
federal rules.
Court decisions in other states indicate
that persons who receive speeding tickets in
Florida might be able to get the ticket nulli-
fled by a judge on the grounds Florida speed
limits have been set by legislative hunch, not
engineering studies, as required.
Conventional wisdom suggests slowing
down traffic will save lives. For generations,


motorists have been told "speed kills." But
top traffic engineers say that is wrong.
Engineers say that other factors cause
more crashes. Motorists driving too slowly
are considered to be the most dangerous dri-
vers. Poor highway design, driver exhaustion
and the effects of medication are often
responsible.
"Lane courtesy the practice of yielding
the left lane to faster moving traffic strong-
ly influences highway safety, according to
National Motorists Association.
In Montana, when all speed limits were
removed, highway deaths dropped to an all-
time low. Since speed limits have been reinstat-
ed, the Montana death toll has doubled,
according to a study by Chad Domsife, founder
of the Best Highway Safety Practices Institute.
The NMA argues that since Congress


changed the law in 1987, many states have
increased interstate speed limits to 70 or 75
mph, and have expanded 65-mph speed lim-
its to other roads. "During this period, the
number of fatalities declined," the NMA con-
tends.
Each state is expected to review highway
speeds at least every five years to comply
with federal law.
Both Domsife and NMA officials claim
ticketing speeding motorists is just a ploy
used by states to collect money. Insurance
companies favor ticketing, they add, because
they find it an easy way to increase profits by
raising the rates of drivers who are "otherwise
exhibiting low risk behavior."
We hope our legislators give this matter
the attention it deserves when their 2006 ses-
sion begins this spring.

BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

It was a year ago that the
Gondolier Sun embarked on
publishing three days a week.
It'S,,b,eed, i aa ien ture, anOl a
successful -one- ,for ,the most
part.
With a larger staff we have
produced about 24 pages of
additional news, features and
photos a week without in-
creasing the price to you, the
reader. That was our main
objective: to get to you a lot
more news that we weren't
getting to print, either be-
cause we only published two
days each week or, in many
cases, we just didn't have the
room.
We wanted to showcase a
lot more photos, which is a
strong point of our home-
town paper. We have literally)
hundreds of pictures of peo-
ple and 600 to 800 local
names each week in our
Paper. JeffTavares, our talent-
ed photographer, started,
pumping out some wonder-
ful photo features, which are
making quite an impact.
We were able to get our
face of Venice, FranValencic,
to cover two days' worth of
things happening around
town. She tries so hard to
reach all organizations and
does that so well. She names a
person of the week, which is
one of her upbeat ways of
promoting all the good in this
community.
Kim Cool has added a full
feature a week with the help
of some great outside writers.
That, in fact, has been a big
addition to our new products.
Jerry Rogovin, for instance,
contributes often, mostly
about things in the Osprey
area. We have our popular old
standbys like Joe Giorgianni.
Roger Button is another of
those whose hard work shows
in how he reports what is
happening in the business
community. He has devel-
oped his Friday feature into
almost a half page of very
interesting information about
what is going to get built or
bought, or other, business
transitions.
He often sorts out rumors,
like where is Red Lobster
going to locate. Just talking to
him this week, he was telling
me about his conversation
with Bruce Frank, who is
bringing 11 theaters to Gal-
leria Plaza. If you read his col-
umn Friday, he had new


information about that.
J.J. Andrews, our very tal-
ented assistant editor, has
helped us shape some new
features, like Page 2 with the
history photo and the new
weather outlook furnished by
our friends at Channel 7. We
have gone into partnership
with them more, collaborat-
ing on some stories.
You may note their South
County reporter, Josh Taylor,
writing in our paper. Their
South County office is housed
in our building. Our tele-
phone company, DayStar,
,.provides, the, feedqtley-need.
:back to the station;..
We have a nice partnership
with the Pelican Press in Sara-
sota and share some news
sources. You probably read
with interest the good work of
Jack Gurney, who finds a lot
of stories no one else seems to
have.
We added a Jobs section
that has become very popular
as the community tries to
deal with pretty close to full
employment. Our classified
section is getting used at
almost twice the level it was
three years ago. Jeana Not-
tingham, the manager, has a
team that I would put up
against anyone. I hope. you
get a chance to talk to one of
these pros. They will make it a
worthwhile and fun experi-
ence.
We added the Sudoku puz-
zle a month ago and, effective
next Sunday, will be providing
you with eight pages of new
puzzles in our TV book.
We have given our adver-
tisers more days to advertise,
and for those who want fre-
quency we have offered
incredible three-day buys
that have been very well
received and have helped
bring ,increased results to
them.
Our new presses were
installed in the fall and have
increased the beauty of our
paper immensely. I have had
a lot of people comment on
how great the new color
looks. We doubled the num-
ber of pages in color and will
add more as we go.
This has allowed us to use
color for a lot more features,
for instance Debbie Shul-
man's Venue page. She does
such a great job and she has
enhanced it with the addition
of color. Debbie helps agen-
cies and organizations all over
town get their events listed.
Of course, the new color
has allowed a lot more adver-
tising in color which, with the
job our talented press team
does, has brought improved
results.
Our carriers have really
helped us through a few
tough times in the transition.
They have really done well

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Don't tell me speed doesn't kill


Editor:
The recent editorials on speed limits were informative and
questionable.
The traffic engineers say higher speeds cause fewer acci-
dents, not more. They claim that accidents are the result of
slower drivers, poor driving habits, poor highway design, med-
icated drivers and driver exhaustion.
The engineers state if the posted limit is 70 mph, but 85 per-
cent of the free flowing traffic is going 73 mph, the speed limit
should be upped to 75 mph. Don't they realize that at 75 mph
they will still go 3 mph faster?
Where will they stop increasing the speed limits, at 90 or 100
mph?
Besides that, increasing the speed won't do away with the
above-mentioned accident causes.
Higher speeds are dangerous. It takes a longer distance to
stop a car, driver reaction time is less and drivers must con-
stantly stay alert.
Speed does kill. The constant deaths of teenagers are a
prime example. They are inexperienced drivers, get distracted,
go too fast, lose control, which ends up being fatal.
Sensible speed limits are necessary and must be lowered
around cities and high-volume traffic areas.
In my opinion, the best highway information can be gotten
from the highway patrol. They are out on the roads day and
night and know what's safe or unsafe.
We do need posted speed limits, and they must be enforced
for everyone's safety. As traffic volume increases, we must all
use extra caution.

Passive parks
in the extreme
Editor:
The city of Venice could
improve its services to the
community by listening to
ALL residents, not just the
complainers and you know
who you are.
They want status quo: no
changes, no development, no
skateboards. You can't impose
change (or a lack of it) or new
rules from complaints by a
handful of people. There
must be a way to make sure
all permanent residents, of all
ages have a say in the future
of our town..
One example is the restric-
tions being imposed on the


parks. It appears the parks
will soon only welcome peo-
ple who do nothing but sit
there.
Debbie Allison

Treating the symptom,
but the disease lingers
Editor:
What an excellent article to
have published regarding the
research done by Mr. Rigby
that was demonstrated by Mr.
Powell to kill Karenia brevis
algae.
This raises some concerns,
which I certainly hope the
governmental bodies that
received the demonstration


had thought about and I'm
sure will question before
wanting to implement its use.
If not, perhaps you could
bring them forward:
1) This "cure" treats the
symptom- an outbreak of K.
brevis and by doing such
this means that high levels of
nitrogen the reason the
algae bloom will remain in
the water. How will the nitro-
gen levels be diminished,
thus bringing the local water
ecology back into balance?
2) What is causing the
nitrogen imbalance to begin
with, and how is that going to
be addressed and treated so
that the symptom algae
outbreak is less severe,
occurs less often or falls back
to its natural cycle?
Thank you again for keep-
ing the public up to date on
current development and
happenings regarding this
phenomenon.

North Port has to
get a hospital
Editor:
My husband built a great lit-
tle home deep in the heavily
wooded area beyond The
Estates. We treasure the peace,
the privacyand the wildlife, but
we have a deep concem at the
distance we are from medical
attention in the event of some
kind of emergencyinwhich the
"golden minutes" really matter.
While we were building,
our son got a splinter through
his finger. The 40-minute
drive to Charlotte was bad
enough, but that was nothing
compared to the wait for
treatment.
Unless we called for a heli-
copter through North Port


EMS, and they agreed our
problem was of such a nature
as to warrant that service, by
the time we would be treated,
chances are slim for survival.
We pay taxes. We do not
use the schools or other ser-
vices. But we do feel we
deserve a hospital closer to
where we and many thou-
sands in our general health
and age category live.
It is not just older folks,
either; it is FPL guys up on
ladders; Mexican laborers
working with heavy equip-
ment; Joe Smith getting his
foot caught in his mowing
machine; little Timmy with a
serious head injury from a
fall; and the baby who stops
breathing for no reason at all.
It is imperative that the
powers-that-be attempt to
have a hospital built to serve
the thousands of people (of
all ages) living too far from
Port Charlotte or Venice hos-
pitals to be adequately pro-
tected.
Arlene Charest
North Port
The story continues
Editor:
I've followed with great frus-
tration the tactics John
Konecnik has used to ramrod
his plans through for the
Fisherman's Wharf redevelop-
ment project So it is very satis-
fyingto hear that the city reject-
ed his condominium project
But I warn. your readers,
this is not the end of it.
Konecnik has learned that if
he keeps banging on the
doors of government with his
high-powered lawyers, even-
tually the politicians will give
him what he wants. No one
dares get in his way.

House seniors, get babysitters


Senior housing. This is in responseto the Venice Housing
Authority's effort to increase the number of units. As far as I
know, Villa San Marco is the only subsidized senior housing in
Venice. I would like to see some senior housing, like 25 percent
for families, 75 percent for seniors, if they're going to increase
these units at Grove Terrace. And then the.seniors could do
child care for the young ladies who go to work and get subsi-
dized housing at Grove Terrace. Grove Terrace is fine. It's on
very valuable property. However, when I sit at the stoplight on
41 Bypass at Venice Avenue and see all those shopping carts
thrown in the ditch, those people don't appreciate living in this
area. Everybody needs to work with everyone else. Everyone
deserves a decent place to live, but I think 75/25 would be a
good percentage for any extension the unit numbers at Grove
Terrace.


Where do the fogies go?
The old fogy who wrote a col-
umn in your Sunday paper is
such an uninteresting person
with such stupid ideas. Why is
she paid to write this junk and
where are the old-timers who
aren't old fogies to go for help
when they are being ripped
off and robbed in the retire-
ment homes they live in
before all these exciting par-
ties she says they have? And,
-about thelady about the palm
-trees, maybe she would like to
pay for two or three or four of
them to help relieve the tax-
payers from paying for them.
Fight for speed. I just read
the article on studies suggest-
ing a higher speed limit is
safer. Maybe the city and
county ought to conduct a
traffic study on Pinebrook
Road. It seems to me that 30
mph was established by a
political bias, not by a traffic
study. Maybe people should
start fighting that sped limit
and tickets they get on
Pinebrook Road if it hasn't
been established by a traffic
study.
The blame game. I had an
idea to help this country
along with the' borderline
recession economic state that'
we're in. To help with the fix-
ing of the roads and bridges
that are crumbling, the school
systems that are falling apart,
the crime that's out of control,
the understaffed police forc-
es, the underpaid teachers,
my idea is to charge an im-
pact fee on anyone who buys
Sacarthat's manufactured by a
foreign country. Al the
money is leaving this country
and going into their banks. We
need something to replace it.
S So. I think an impact fee is
a real good idea. All thejobs
that are lost to foreign car
companies, that's a huge tax
Base that's being lost. One of
the reasons why. the econo-
my's falling apart is because
we're giving all. ur,money to
foreign countries and so few
Countries are giving money to
us. Impact fees. I think it's a
. good idea.
Troublemakers. I want to.
comment oin the caller that
said there are no senior citi-
zens listed in the police beat.
It's really quite simple be-
Scause it's the people inthe age
,- group given that are causing
- most of the trouble. And then
S' you have people coming from
Other countries that are trou-
Sbleilakers. They come in and
follow them. There are whole
2, groups of people who come


into Venice and they bring
their troublemaking and their
arguments and everything
else. That's the age group of
the people who do that.
Thanks to vets. This phone
call is for Don Pedriali of
Englewood, who wrote in
about the Vietnam War. I say
thank you very much for
being a veteran of that war
and I commend you. Thank
you to all you veterans.
Appalling decor. For a city
that's spending thousands of
dollars for beautification,
what a disgrace those Christ-
mas decorations are down-
town. You want to align your-
self with Northern Italian
architecture. They would be
absolutely appalled that there
are only flowers and stupid-
looking lights downtown and
there is no indication at all
that it is the birthday of
Christ.
Also, it's very generous that
the Jewish congregation was
allowed to have a menorah
downtown, but since ,Chris-
tians do outnumber the Jew-
ish religion, why hasn't one of
the churches been allowed to
have a living nativity down-
town?
Maximum capacity. Walk
into a restaurant or other
public building and you'll be
comforted by a posted sign
that states the legally safe
occupancy was determined
by the fire marshal.
This occupancy can only
be increased if the owner pro-
vides more exits or other safe-
ty features. Wouldn't you feel
more comfortable if those
county and city limit signs
included the maximum num-


ber of residences allowed by
the hurricane marshal?
The job of the hurricane
marshal is to keep the num-
ber of deaths to some reason-
able minimum during a
storm. We people are just too
valuable to be treated as
debris to be picked up post-
hurricane by overemphasis
on things like body bag sup-.
ply.
Return to sender. I would
like to know what is going on
with automation at the post
office. Fourteen times last
year we put a letter in the box,
it went to Manasota, stamps
were canceled, and it came
back in two days. This year,
being the fourth of January,
we have already had this hap-
pen twice.
Today, we received a letter
that I put in the mailbox Jan.
2, and it came back today. It
never leaves the county. Now,
whoever is running this auto-
matic equipment needs to be
supervised a little more care-
fully. This is absolutely ludi-
crous, and you are asking for a
raise in postage? I hardly
think you deserve it.
Fire department waste. I
praise the work of the fire
department but have some
concerns. Time is of such
great importance as I have
had an ongoing problem see-
ing a fire truck show up at
every medical emergency in
our small community. We are
from Ohio and never see this.
Maybe some restructuring
should be looked at.
I was concerned just to
think of the waste of gas to
bring the fire trucks out for a
medical emergency. NowI see
the concern of fire trucks tied
up on medical runs. If it is a
medical emergency, send res-
cue. If it is a fire, send the
truck.
No excuse. The city of
Venice owes its taxpayers a
hurricane shelter asihftn-
ice Community CenYit'hTehe
island of Venice as they had
promised us. There's no
excuse and we need this shel-
ter. I am very upset that the
city has reneged on this
promise.

week. School administrators
and teachers from schools
outside our district analyzed
all phases of the school.
The area that needs the.

are the aging science labs. I

The Venice staff strutted
their stuff, showing off the
many, advanced programs
they have put in, including


their academies, their honors
program, the small learning
communities, the Rotary
Futures Program and their
wonderful support from the

strengths, including that the
graduation rate is 84 percent,
up from 64 percent five years
ago. That is the highest out-
side of Pine View in the coun-

Sheriff's office looking for Carlie Brucia's mother


Parents make plea for missing girl


STAFF, WIRE REPORTS

The mother of a Sarasota
girl whose abduction was
captured on a car wash sur-
veillance camera is being
sought by the Charlotte
County Sheriff's Office after
family members filed a report
Monday accusing her of steal-
ing money and jewelry.
The brother of Susan
Schorpen, Carlie Brucia's
mother, filed a report with the
sheriff's office alleging that
Schorpen cashed a check for
$800, and took a wallet with
$300 cash, a ring valued at
$5,000 and a gas credit card
from her father's Deep Creek
home.
.The brother, Paul Schor-
en. filed the report on behalf
'o his father, Igie Schorpen,


who is in the first stages of
Alzheimer's disease, accord-
ing to the report.
No charges have been fil-
ed, according to CCSO
spokesman Bob Carpenter.
"Right now, it's just an
investigation," he said Wed-
nesday. "First thing we have
to do is find Schorpen to talk
to her."
Egil refused to comment
Wednesday.
"Stop bothering me with
this (stuff)," he saiT before
hanging up the phone.
Paul reportedly told the
deputy that both his sister
and his brother, Kurt Schor-
pen, have a drug problem and
are homeless. He said they are
probably, still living in Sara-
sota County somewhere. The
alleged stolen check was


signed by Kurt, the report
states.
'The check was supposed
to pay for her stay in a resi-
dential drug treatment pro-
gram. The check was) left
blank since Paul and Egil did
not know the name of the
program. Susan was sup-
posed to check into the pro-
gram on Jan. 4.
Susan's drug problem be-
came known after the highly
publicized abduction and
slaying of Carlie by mechanic
Joseph Smith in February
2004. Carlie, 11, was grabbed
as she was walking home
from a friend's house. The
abduction was caught on a
surveillance camera.
Smith was convicted in
November of kidnapping,-
raping and killing Cll'." .


BY GEORGE MCGINN
5TAFF WRITER


The parents of a missing
12-year-old girl made several
pleas to their daughter Friday:
Please call, please tell us you
are all right, please come
home.
Jesus Erisuris-Morales and
Elva Sandoval, who spoke
mostly in Spanish, held a
press conference Friday in
front of their home. The cou-
ple also asked anyone who
has seen their daughter, May-
ra Erisuris Sandoval, tb call
police.
Sandoval has been missing
since Jan. 10, when she left
her house after coming home
from Booker Middle School
in Sarasota.


Police said they've had two
leads in the case. Officers
investigated the possibility

that she had been seen
around University Parkway
and Lockwood Ridge Road at
8 p.m. the day she disap-
peared. On Jan. 11, a girl
matching her age, build and
likeness was seen on a sur-
veillance tape at the Shell gas
station on Bee Ridge Road,
just west of Cattleman Road
in Sarasota, officials said.
Sarasota County sheriff
spokesman Lt Chuck Lesal-
tato said he wasn't sure if
either sighting was Sandoval.
A match?
In the surveillance tape,
released Friday, a girl match-
ing SandovaL&,d risedptiri is,


seen getting out of a dark-col-
ored sport utility vehicle,
walking into the gas station,
walking back outside and
using a cell phone.
Sarasota County Sheriff
William Balkwill said he didn't
know if Sandoval has a cell
phone or could have been
using a friend's.
Capt. Chuck Forbes said
there are some similarities to
Margarita Aguilar-Lopez, a
12-year-old girl who went
missing last year from Bra-
denton. He said he called the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement to compare the
case.
"There is no indication
that she (Sandoval) has left
the city or the state," Forbes

Kyle Abney scores 20
points as VHS boys
avenge earlier losses to
Southeast.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Class 5A District 12
boys basketball tournament
is still a few weeks away, but
Venice is showing signs of
being a sleeper in the upcom-
ing event.
Although the Indians got
off to a slow start this season,
they are now giving the front
runners all they can handle
and then some.
Venice had lost to
Southeast twice earlier this
season, but the third time was
the charm Friday night at the
Teepee.
Paced by forward Kyle
Abney's 20 points, Venice was
able to post a 60-48 victory
over the Seminoles.
Venice improved its overall
record to 8-10 and its district
mark to 4-6. Southeast fell to
9-6 and 5-5.


,In recent games, the
Indians have blown out'
Lakewood Ranch, lost a nail-
biter to district leading Port
Charlotte, played tough in a
controversial game at.
Charlotte, and have now
beaten Southeast.
"We're getting there," said
Indians head coach Steve
Cavallaro. "We played a whole
game tonight. I can't be more
proud of them. They battle. I
hope all the adversity makes
us tougher."
In the previous meeting
between Venice and
Southeast in the finals of the
CES Classic at Manatee
Community College, the
Indians offense was sluggish,
only scoring 36 points. They
didn't take care of the ball and
committed'mucho turnovers.
Venice played a much
crisper, cleaner game Friday.
"We handled the ball bet-
ter," Cavallaro said. "The ball
movement created good
shots. We did a good job keep-
ing them off-balance. We
attacked the zone well. The
big guys did a great job on the


boards."
Center Ilya Vasilevskiy had
12 points and 10 rebounds.
Abney arguably had his best
game of the season. The knife
slashed for 8-for-12 shooting
from the field. He also
grabbed nine rebounds.
Guard George Stritz added
14 points and canned a three-
pointer. Forward Kalen Lyons
was down on the scoring list
with only four points, but he
was active with six assists and
two steals. He also played his
trademark tough D.
Point guard Ariel Bonilla

One goal enough for Lady Indians on 'Senior Night'

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


One was enough to make
"Senior Night" a success at
Powell-Davis Stadium.
We're not talking about
one senior there are seven
of them on the Venice High
girls soccer team.
We're talking about one
goal.
Andria Thomas' penalty
kick in the second half was
enough to power the Lady
Indians to a victory over visit-
ing Charlotte High in the final
regular season home match
of the season forVenice.
Kara Ferretti was fouled in
the box, resulting in the PK.
The ball trickled through the
Charlotte keeper's hands.
"Charlotte played well,"
said Venice head coach Joe
Ferretti, whose team finishes
the regular season with a
record of 14-5-1. "We started
passing better in the second
half."
Keeper Meghann Dunn
played a consistent match in
the net. In front of her,
Kristina Swanson, Khan
Nguyen, Liz Walchle and
Ashley Kaiser were hustle city.
"Ashley Kaiser had her
game on," Ferretti said. "She
was just outstanding."
At midfield, Melanie
Murphy subbed in for the
injured Emily Cremisio and
played an impressive match
along with Kara Ferretti.
Leading scorer, Kristen
Johnson, Chelsea Rose and
Monet Strammer made
charges up front.
Before the match, the

PILOT fromPage 1A

"Those were heady days:
no hardware, no software,"
Mason said. "We sat around
and dreamed it up. I helped
design tracking station com-
munications equipment used
to talk to the astronauts early
on. Later we equipped air-
craft to simulate the space-
craft in order to test the
equipment and personnel.
We put 18 tracking stations
around world including
Hawaii, Canary islands, Ni-
geria, Mexico and Zanzibar. I
had a nice long career with
NASA."
"Mercury 7's Gordon
Cooper and his wife and my
wife and I would fly out on
weekends in our own planes
once in a while. We got to
know Glenn and the others
pretty, well. I felt honored..
Some of them wereWWII and
Korean war pilots who had
received the Distinguished
Flying Cross. They were a nice
bunch of guys."

Up and away
Mason was drawn to avia-
tion at an early age. At 6 years
old he had a ride in a small
airplane at Boston's then East
Boston Airport. He remem-
bers wantingto be a pilot and
thinking of little else for the
next 10 years.
At 16 he set a record that
was never broken at the new-
ly opened airport in Billerica,
Mass.: As a student pilot, he
flew his first solo flight after
only 4 hours, 20 minutes of
instruction.
"I had a natural ability and
the burning desire to do it,"
Mason said.
He worked in his spare
time at the airport for the next
year washing planes, billing
and refueling planes to pay
for his flying. He earned his
private pilot's license by April
of 1946.
In June 1946 he graduated
from high school and entered
the Merchant Marines. For
the next two and a half years
he sailed on slow-moving


PHOTOS COURTESY OF CHUCK MASON.

Mason with 1956 Tripacer airplane he used at NASA's Wallops
Island facility to perform initial checkout of the prototype
manned space flight tracking station.


Liberty Ships as an able-bod-
ied seaman delivering cargo
around the world. By the.age
of 19 Mason had traveled
every ocean, visiting 30 courn-
tries on every continent but
Australia.
After his brief but exciting
stint in the Merchant Ma-
rines, he enrolled in North-
eastern University in Boston,
earning a degree as an electri-
cal engineer. He graduated in
1954.
To help pay for college
expenses he worked as the
university's chief photogra-
pher, being called out of class
often to do the school's work.
What began ;as a hobby
turned into a side career.
From 1953-57 he worked out
of his house as a professional
photographer, earning what
was then a not-so-shabby fee
- $5 for ababypicture. Along
the way he photographed
weddings and proms, and
eventually worked his way up
to industrial photography at
$50 per photo by 1957.
In 1954 Mason took his
first job with MIT's Lincoln
Lab helping to design an air
defense computer, and in
1957 moved to the FAA work-
ing as a factory engineer test-
ing VHF Orini Directional
Radio Range used as ground-


Based navigational aids for
the FAA airways system.

Cold War
In 1960 he transferred to
NASA, where Mason would
stay for nearly three decades.
At NASA he designed ground
station communications
equipment, instrumented
airplanes to checkout track-
ing stations and, near the
later part of his career, tested
prototype remote-sensing
equipment in high altitude
airplanes.
At Langley Research Cen-
ter he helped design ground
station air-to-ground voice
communications equipment
and ground communication
networks. From 1962-75 Ma-
son worked as chief of the
Instrument and Aircraft Sec-
ton at Goddard Space Flight
Center in Greenbelt, NMd.,
where he supervised the in-
stallation of equipment on
large piston-engine Constel-
lation aircraft that would sim-
ulate a Mercury spacecraft
from 10,000 feet.
Later Mason would com-
bine:his love of photography
with aviation. His final years
at NASA were as a project
manager testing prototype
remote-sensing instruments
hi high-flying U2 airplanes.


Flying at 65,000 feet, U2s
would turn on the remote-
sensing equipment to check
the moisture content of vital
crops. This technology was
later used to check the condi-
tion of Russian crops as well
as those in the United States.
Another part of the mis-
sion was to study signatures
of thunderstorms to identify
their intensity and track
weather conditions around
the Earth.
After years of flying Flor-
ida's skies on his vacations,
Mason retired to the Venice
area in 1988.
"We wanted to relocate
somewhere between Naples
and Sqrasota, where it wasn't
too congested," Mason said.
"We wanted to be near the
gulf and where there was a
good airport. We also liked
the Italian Mediterranean
theme of the area."

Still flying
Updn retiring, Mason did-
n't hang up his wings. He con-
tinued to fly on a regular
basis, and became involved
in community service. He
was a member of the Airport
Advisory Board for several
years in the 1990s, serving as
chair qf the board for three of
them..
Today he teaches comput-
ers in the area, and flies his
newest aircraft, a 2004 Amer-
ican Champion Aircraft Cita-
bria, on a regular basis. Once
a month he leads a Sarasota
PC Users Group forum on
computer basics and digital
photography, and tutors from
home as a hobby.
He's active in three aviation
organizations: Venice Ali-
ation Society Inc., Cloud
Busters (a nonpolitical group
that flies to different locations
for lunch once a month), and
Experimental Airplane As-
sociation Chapter 1285, an
organization that takes Young
Eagles 8-16 years old up on
10-15 minute flights to get
.them excited about aviation.
Mason is qualified as an
EAA flight adrisor and as an


EAA technical counselor
authorized to assist aircraft
builders with safety checks on
personal aircraft under con-
struction by their owners. He
is a licensed aircraft and pow-
erplant mechanic, which
allows him to work on any-
thing that flies, from a Piper
Cub to a 747. He also has a
commercial pilot's license,
and ah instrument rating.
What does all this mean?
He can keep his head in the
clouds.
"There's no other feeling
like the three-dimensional
freedom of flight. The thrill of
liftoff is still the same after
more than 60 years of flying,"
Mason said.
By the way, there was one
close call during lis early


years. Mason recalls flying
with his father from the
Boston area to visit relatives
on Long Island when he real-
ized the throttle cable had
come loose from the carbure-
tor. He couldn't reduce speed
to land, so he turned off the
engine on final approach and
glided in safely.
"I told my father what I was
going to do and he said, 'OK.'
It was no big deal. Upon land-
ing we reattached the cable
and later that day flew back
home," Mason said.

River Road sewer plant brings ecological, aesthetic concerns


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER
News this week that a
sewage treatment plant could
be placed along River Road
has Sarasota County commis-
sioners very concerned about
the future of the area.
The county has at least one
plant that fits nicely into an
upscale community, but the
proposed plant on Thomas
Ranch known as the West
Village District is slated to
be placed along a scenic road
and could pose environmen-
tal hazards.
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton said the conceptual plan
for the ranch development
places the proposed plant on
the northeast comer of the
property at River Road and
East River Road. The property
was only recently annexed by
the city of North Port and is
expected to be developed into
an upscale development.
The IslandWalk at the West
Villages de-
velopment is
an 830-acre
planned com-

expected to
feature 1,869
residences, as
well as swim-
ming pools, a
Patterson fitness center,
tennis and
basketball courts, a conve-
nience store, gas station, car
wash, bank, deli and beauty
salon.
While Thaxton said the
population along River Road
is not great,
the plant
would be visi-
ble to the
people who
live there and
especially for
the thou-
sands who
use the road
Mercier every day.
"It is a beau-
tiful and wonderful road to
drive," he said. "It is the gate-
way to Englewood. This both-
ers me. If they are going to
have a plant we need to
have these issues on the table
and have our voice and con-
cern heard."
He is also worried the plant
will be in the Myakka River
floodplain and would be a
danger to the environment
and ecpsystem if something
went wrong in the future.
"I just think it is not the
best place for this," Thaxton
said.
Commissioners Shannon
Staub and Nora Patterson
suggested sending a letter to
the developer of the ranch
and to North Port officials to
let them know what they are
worried about and why.
"We need to provide our
input," Patterson said. "There

buffering. It doesn't have to
be something which is ugly."
Staub said it was impor-

county, which is affected
since the boundaries of the
property are part of unincor-
porated Sarasota County.

The commissioners also
suggested wording the letter
in such a manner as to avoid
creating any animosity or any
suspicions the county wants
to interfere with the project as
a whole.
Commissioners also want
to explore any potential sew-


age link to the new treatment
plant.
County Administrator Jim
Ley said county officials have
been involved in the overall
process but agreed that a let-

concern is appropriate.

harried."
Schofield readily admits
that she was once a disorga-
nized person, suffering from a
chronic case of cluttered
closets and negative attitudes.
When wishful thinking didn't
work, she decided to attack
the problems directly.
She tried and retried various
techniques, refined and
adapted numerous strategies,
and eventually came up with
solutions that let her handle
home management while


giving her time and freedom
to enjoy other activities. In
the workshop, Deniece will
share what she learned from
her experience.
She'll share organizing tips
for a pack rat even a self-
proclaimed pack rat can
benefit from some specific
ideas/rules that will help
them to get organized in spite
of themselves.
You'll know you are a pack
rat, if you hear these phrases
escaping your mind:
It might come in handy
someday.
SIt's such a good deal I can't
pass it up.
SI'll just.put this here for


i~~:gp ?~


now.
This is going to be worth
something
I can sell it on the Internet.
My favorite aunt gave it to
me.
Deniece will also share
unusual uses for common
items, like coffee filters, a
bathroom bowl brush, kitty
litter pans, dishpans, ice cube
bins, ponytail holders, signal
dots, shower curtain hooks.
This is yet another way to
recycle. This stuff isn't going
into the trash it's going to
be used in a different way.
This can also save money.

* TIME
From Page 9

There is no need to buy a
specialty item when you have
something at home that will
work just as well. Also,
reevaluate how you are using
areas in your home for
example a linen closet might
provide the needed space for
a pantry.
A to-do list is not some-
thing you sit down and think
up. Deniece will share the five
things that feed and nourish a
to-do list.
When you think of some-
thing you have to do you
usually write it down on
today's list.- even though it
might not be possible to get it
done today. That leaves us
with an undone list at the end
of the day and we feel like we
haven't accomplished any-
thing.
Preparing a to-do list
correctly will prevent that. So
will creating an easy-to-find-
and-use spot to keep it.
Deniece explains die six
different organizing methods,
since organizing isn't a "one-
size-fits-all" activity.
Everyone has a different
style. Choose the one that fits
your lifestyle, energy level,
and time constraints.
Another topic in the
seminars, which are the same
two-hour presentation at
each time slot, is how to
interrupt the interruption
cycle. Learn strategies on
how to differentiate between
necessary and unnecessary
interruptions.

Families get special atten-
tion in Deniece's seminars.
Some of the topics she will
cpver are:
STraveling With Kids: Turn
on a movie and hand them a
video game and you won't
hear a peep out of them until
you arrive at your destination.
If you'd like more family
involvement and maybe even


a few more scrapbook
moments there are a few.
ideas for family fun when
traveling. Also helpful are
ideas for organizing stuff in
the car and feeding the group,
will be presented.
Time management for kids
covers how to help children i
learn time-management skills,
and specific ideas that will
keep them on track.
"Kids Helping Around the
House" is all about delegating.
and making the new organiz-:e
ing system simple enough to
work.
"Turning Toyland into
Joyland" covers toy storage
and organizing ideas, how to
find more space, the process'
of rotating toys and clever
approaches to storing toys.
Consider "The Solution to
Paper Pollution." Everyone in
the house generates paper.
The kids bring home things '
from school (completed work,l
pieces of art, permission slips,
information notices. Newspa-
pers, catalogs, computer
print-outs, receipts, junk
mail, menus for take out,
coupons, team rosters,
schedules, appointment
reminders cards, business
cards, announcements,
greeting cards what to do
with all this stuff and how to
keep it under control.
Creative and unique
approaches will be a big part
of the seminars.
And when it comet to goal
setting participants will
learn why setting goals is so
important for adults and
children, when to making .,
time for goal setting and how
to make goals that are
actually attainable.
And when it comes to the
kitchen and garage, Deniece "
will enlighten even the most
seasoned homeowner about
setting up centers; putting
things where people use .
them, prioritizing kitchen
items, labeling, finding extra
space, and the junk drawer.

The Academy of Medical
Transcription and Profes-
sions, new to Englewood in
2004, is currently enrolling
for its third session. Medical
transcriptionists transcribe
medical dictation by physi-
cians. The reports are then
placed in the patient's med-
ical records.


Medical transcription can
be a full-time or part-time
career, and transcriptionists
generally have the option of
working at the facility or from
home, often with a flexible
schedule, since most voice.
files can be downloaded from
the Internet, the academy
said in a press release.


The 20-week course con-
sists of weekly two-hour
classes covering pharmaceu-
ticals, subjective-objective
assessment and prognosis
notes, medical terminology,
terminology of anatomy and
physiology with practice dic-
tation in all major medical
specialties, including cardi-


ology, oncology and radiolo-
gy. The school is at 353 W.
Dearborn St., sharing space
with Ault's Driving School.
The first 2006 class will be
held on Jan. 30.
The $2,500 tuition fee
includes all textbooks, CDs,
Dorland's medical dictio-
nary, pharmaceutical word


book, and a Bytescribe wav
player, which allows users to
control a recording by use of
a foot pedal without taking
their hands from the key-
board.
If a student is unable to
complete the course work
within the 20 weeks, the
academy will allow 10 extra


weeks of instruction at no
additional charge. For those
who are unable to attend the
weekly class, a correspon-
dence course is available for
$2,000.

Venice Golf & Country Club




sets a new course


PHOTO COURTS' OF VENICE GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB
Aerial view shows the recently remodeled and expanded clubhouse, several lakes, fairways and roads of the Venice Golf & Country Club.


BY BARBARA BUGLIOLI
GUEST WRITER

It has been six years since
Venice Golf & Countru Club
members set a new course for
their club and community.
During those years, rules
have been amended, the mis-
sion has been redefined, the
clubhouse remodeled and
enlarged and the golf course
has been redesigned.
The story behind the
metamorphosis began when
the club was turned over to its
members in 1999.
In those days there were
rumblings and discord within
the outwardly idyllic commu-
nity, enough rumblings that
property values were in dan-
ger of being negatively affect-
ed. The consensus was that
much could be done to im-
prove the quality of life and to
do it right a new vision was
needed.
As a result of such lofty
thinking, the Strategic Plan-
ning Committee was con-
ceived. Members of that com-
mittee and of the homeown-
ers association went on a
retreat to search for the an-
swers. After much soul
searching, new goals were set,
new policies were put into
place and management was
selected to implement a for-
ward-thinking alliance of
members and residents. The
new plan was accepted by a
two-thirds vote of those con-
cerned. Today, six years later,
VG&CC is better than ever.
Today's VG&CC has a new
course and has set a new
course.
I became involved in the
community more recently. In
20041 took some "snowbirds"


there to purchase a new
home on Wayforest Drive. Al-
ready enamored by my wreek-
ly \isits to pre\iew homes for
sale, I appreciated the care,
design and energy of the
community.
Over and over and over
again I hear people say how
great the people are who live
and work here. .
S"After all, it's not a re-
hearsal," is the way one long-
time resident puts it.
That particular feeling of
"now or never" is literally felt
by the retirees who have been
instrumental in the club's
transformation.
VG&CC is a deed-restrict-
ed development of 587 cus-
tom- and maintenance-free
homes carefully placed on
scenic drives adjacent to 26
lakes and 11 nature preserves.
Bound by Center Road and.
East Venice Avenue and be-
/tween River Road and Jaca-
randa Boulevard, the com-
munity covers 460 acres. It is
close to U.S. 41 South and
nearly as close to Interstate
75. Shopping centers and
government centers are just
minutes away.
Started as a joint venture
by a team of developers and
entrepreneurs, David Mc-
Nabb, John McGiffen and
Marvin Kramer, VG&CC was
conceived as an upscale golf-
course community. With its
newly designed champi-
onship golf course, Har-Tru
tennis courts, community
swimming pools, first-class
fitness center and up-to-date
multipurpose clubhouse and
community center, the com-
munity is even better today
than its founders envisioned
it would be.


Because of an inner core of
believers who had set their
sights so high, a vision was set
in stone and management
and owners hunkered down
to deal with the countless
upheavals that needed to take
place. Increased special as-
sessments for financing the
changes, logistical 'inconve-
niences during the seemingly
unending construction, and
even new bylaws and policies
were put in place. Many of the
changes made no sense to
some, but the majority felt
they were necessary if the
transformation and upgrad-
ing were to be successful.
Along with the growing
pains, the club started to
transform itself in other ways.
Additions and renovations to
the clubhouse were complet-
ed by January 2003 and short-
ly after the state-of-the-art fit-
ness center was ready foruse
in 2004. Next came the multi-
million-dollar golf course
restoration project that was
finally completed in Novem-
ber 2005. Last but not least, a
cutting edge storm water irri-
gation system was put into
place.
Even after two yeat I mar-
vel at the warmth and friend-
liness that greets me each
time I pass through the club's
gated entrance. The guards
recognize me now and as we
make small talk, I know that it
is partly because they need to
know who frequents the
premises, but it is also be-
cause they are genuinely up-
beat and real.
Recently, I was there to
meet with a client who is sell-
ing her house and moving out
of state to begin her next
adventure. Driving along one


of the community's winding
roads to her home. I enjoyed
the view of sun-streaked lily
pads on the lake to the left.
Also on the lake was a swarm
of morning plovers enjoying a
morning bath. My day was off
to a wonderful start.
Such sites are part of the
community's overall land-
scaping plan. The indigenous
plants, trees, shrubs and
wildlife continually stir my
soul while delighting my
senses.
The visionaries who pick-
ed up the torch from the orig-
inal landscapers and ran with
it must have focused on how
this neighborhood could be
modified to produce an even
better feeling of tranquility.
They succeeded admirably.
It is apparent that those in
charge must have agreed that
the club's groundcover, with
all it carries, before, between
and behind the buildings,
shrubs or trees, fountains,
statues, bric-a-brac and ob-
jects of art, must be "one in
unity of design" with the
homes.
In the accomplishment of
this task, VG&CC's homeown-
ers and master associations
have taken a proactive ap-
proach to enforcing owner
compliance with the rules.
The strict guidelines and
enforced deed restrictions
coupled with the wide assort-
ment of builder and housing
styles throughout the com-
munity have resulted in a sort
of "allowed uniform diversi-
ty." As a result, you get to
admire each home's personal
embellishments without dis-
tractions.
In 2005, the club received
the Landscaping Beautifi-


cation Award for Businesses.
Club General Manager Jim
Schell said the club's mission
was to become prestigious,
i.e. one of the very best mas-
ter planned communities.
In the club's monthly
newsletter, The Legend, I'm
reminded' of what David
Hunihan, the quality control
manager for Fidelity Home's
on-site construction center
said to me about the this epi-
center of social interaction.
"The clubhouse is more of
a communal meeting place,
the hearth, or soul of the resi-
dents," he said. "It's the place
where one goes Thursday
mornings for yoga, Fridays to
meet friends for a game of
mah jongg. When scheduled
on the monthly calendar,
some meet for bridge and
others for arts and crafts.
Those members so disposed,
go to the pool for their water
aerobics class or just for the
heck of it, a drink and dinner
and football game at the
award-winning restaurant
and bar."
The restaurant is in such
demand it's often necessary
to call in the morning to make
a reservation to ensure a table
in the evening.
A plaque between the
clubhouse and the golf
course is a constant reminder
to members and visitors alike
of all the hurdles the mem-
bership went through to
become an Audubon Inter-
national Sanctioned golf
course and club. The wish
was to preserve and upgrade
the quality of life for all peo-
ple who visit, and also, to
enhance the integrity of the

Home heaters bring fire


and carbon monoxide dangers


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 ac-
counted 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, fire-
places, portable 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.


meeting at the Sarasota
Memorial Hospital Auditor-
ium. Myers will discuss how
to know if you are hormone
resistant, the factors that
affect a hormone-resistant
response, what can be done
to minimize or prevent its


"Most fires with space heat-
ers are preventable if key
safety measures are fol-
lowed."
To avoid problems, Gorski
recommends keeping space
heaters, both portable and
fixed, at least three feet away
from anything that can bum,
including furnishings, bed-
ding, and clothing. Turn the
heater off when leaving the
room or going to sleep.
Wood stoves and fire-
places also need special care.
When buying a new unit,
have a qualified technician
perform the installation. If
the appliance is already in-
stalled, have it checked to
make sure the installation
was done properly.
Most fires in wood stoves,
fireplaces aiid chimneys oc-
cur due to a lack of regular
cleaning, leading to the
buildup of creosote, the res-
idue of unburned fuel.
Heating devices should be
inspected and cleaned on a
regular basis according to
the manufacturer's instruc-


occurrence and the most
advanced treatments for this
condition. For more informa-
tion, call 488-2166.
Medicare basics
Laura Kitay, seniors spe-
cialist, discusses The Basics of


tions. Use, only seasoned
hardwood and don't burn
trash in a fireplace because
the fire could easily burn
out of control. Keep sparks
and embers inside the fire-
place with fire screens made
of heat-tempered 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
hqme, Gorski recommends
installing a CO alarm. Symp-
toms of carbon monoxide
poisoning are severe head-
ache, dizziness, mental con-
fusion, nausea and faint-
ness. Many symptoms of
carbon monoxide poisoning
are similar to the flu, food
poisoning or other illnesses.
For more information, call
the Sarasota County Call
Center at 861-5000 and ask
for Sarasota County Fire De-
partment Fire Prevention.

By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist:
Q. My mother is 91 years old
and lives alone. She wants to
remain in her home and
won't consider moving to an
assistive living facility. We
are concerned because she
can't hear the telephone ring
when we call her and she
cannot hear the doorbell
when we visit. We have
startled her several times
when we have had to enter
the house without her
knowledge. Any suggestions?
A. You are right to be
concerned about your mother's
situation and you will need to
equip her home with some
special devices to ensure her
safety. First, you will need to
install a wireless doorbell with
an amplified ringer. These
devices are inexpensive and
require no wiring. Make sure
she can hear her doorbell from
all areas of the home. Next, she
will need an amplified phone
which can be obtained free of
charge from the state of
Florida. In order to receive a
phone, our mother will have to
be examined by an Audiologist
and given a special form to fill
out. The loudness of the ring
can be adjusted and the
loudness of the voices coming
over the phone can also be
adjusted so your mother can
hear the caller clearly. I would
also suggest you check to
insure your mother can hear
her smoke alarm and that it is
loud enough to wake her. Call
the Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. at 492-4327 to answer a
few simple questions so they
can evaluate your mother's
situation in more detail and
inform you about the many
devices available to make her
home safer.

GINGIVITIS SNEAK ATTACK
Gingivitis is the earliest form of gum disease and it affects only the
gum tissues. It is characterized by plaque buildup followed by inflamed
(red and swollen) gums which may bleed easily. At this stage, the
disease is still reversible.
Gingivitis is a classic good hews-bad news story. The good news is
that you don't feel much pain. The bad news is that your mouth can be
pretty sick without your knowing it. Unfortunately, except for an
occasional indication of blood when brushing, most adults are
unaware that they even have the condition.
The villian here is dental plaque. The dangerous accumulation cleverly
hides between your teeth, especially down deep where the gums and
teeth meet. The dangerous plaque especially likes the areas behind
your lower front teeth and between your rear teeth where we usually
don't brush or floss effectively. If gingivitis isn't treated, it will
frequently lead to more severe form of gum disease.

What's he trying to tell us?


LARRY ALLAN
FIRES AIR COLUMNIST

My son and I set up our
tent in a remote spot in Rocky
Mountain National Park in
Colorado. Mark was there for
some serious hiking; I was
there, as usual, for serious
photography and to spend
some "quality" time with my
son, of course.
During our "explorations"
in the area, we encountered
elk, deer and mountain goats.
The latter are not native to
the area, but were success-
fully introduced into the
region. We observed all three
species with rapt attention,
following them when we
could, without causing un-
due alarm in the animals we
were observing.
But strangely, the one
species that turned out to be
the most fascinating to us
was the tiny golden-mantled
ground squirrel. Each morn-
ing, we woke up to this
diminutive creature's scam-
pering across the roof of our
tent. We enjoyed our camp-


site meals observing this
busy little creature who.
was obviously hoping for
handouts. And the brilliantly
colorful little fellow was
probably the last living thing
we saw as we extinguished
our campfire preparatory to
crawling into our sleeping
bags each night.
Golden-mantled ground
squirrels live in mountain
forests. Sometimes they're
found in sagebrush country.
While they resemble chip-
munks, they're somewhat
larger (9 to 12 inches long).
For comparison, our eastern
gray squirrels are about 17 to
20 inches long.
But the most fascinating
thing about our little moun-
tain companion was the
variety of sounds it made. It
chirped. It squealed. It even,
growled. And it seemed to
respond (at least pay atten-
tion) when I "titch-titched"
by slapping the tip of my
tongue against the roof of
my mouth just behind my
teeth.
One of these delightful
creatures spent a whole
evening meal "talking" to
Mark and me, sitting uip on
his haunches chattering
away while we prepared our
meal and ate it. What was
he trying to tell us with this
variety of sounds in his
vocabulary?
Was he offering us a les-
son in survival? Was he trying
to point out that too much
self-inteiest on the part of
humankind could actually

Keep Sarasota County Beautiful


earns President's Circle Award


STAFF REPORT

Keep Sarasota County
Beautiful was honored with a
President's Circle Award at
Keep America Beautiful's 52nd
National Conference in Or-
lando Dec. 8. The national
organization lauded Keep
Sarasota County Beautiful for
attending ongoing training,
its active board, conducting
an annual litter index and
calculating a cost-benefit
ratio.
Keep Sarasota County was


also singled out for engaging
volunteers to take greater re-
sponsibility for their commu-
nity's environment, said the
organization's manager, San-
dra Washington. "Last year
more than- 4,000 local volun-
teers logged more than 15,000
hours," said Washington.
"They provided real solutions
to problems like improper
disposal of litter and other
community blights by joining
initiatives like our local, clean-
ups, our adopt-a-road pro-
grams and cigarette litter pre-


vention test."
Keep America Beautiful is
the nation's largest volunteer-
based community action and
education program. Estab-
lished in 1953, it has a net-
work of nearly 1,000 affiliates
and partners. Sandra Wash-
ington has led the local Sara-
sota County affiliate for more
than 20 years.

STAFF REPORT
The Galapagos Islands are
legendary for their rare and
extraordinary animals that
have no-fear of humans and
are found nowhere else in the
world. A nature-based tour-
ism initiative developed by
the Charles Darwin Research
Station with the cruise ship
Galapagos Explorer II, or
GEII, is designed not only to
protect these animals and
their environment but also
to actively recruit tourists for
help gathering valuable en-
vironmental information -
critical for long-term research
and preservation.
The Charles Darwin Re-
search Station establishes
environmental protocol for
tour companies and moni-
tors animal and plant species
and the effects of human
interaction on them. Equip-
ment, funds and staff are very
limited for the not-for-profit
organization, so researchers
are turning to environmen-
tally friendly cruise ships for
gathering valuable data on
wildlife, marine species and
plants.
The Darwin Station devel-
oped a program with Ca-
nodros, atour operator that
runs the GEII cruise ship. The


ship's naturalist guides con-
duct the bio-diversity moni-
toring program with assis-
tance from passengers. The
ship visits two islands each
day. Staff naturalists see more
of these islands than anyone.
These guides send back infor-
mation and observations to
the Darwin Station for compi-
lation aAd analysis.
Passengers are encouraged
to, participate in long-term
research' programs. The Nat-
uralist Room allows tourists
to work together with the
ship's guides to monitor the
physical and biological proc-
esses of the islands by logging
uncommon sights and obser-
vations in their logbook.
"The Galapagos is a very
big place. There are more


than 120 islands. Neither the
park service nor the Darwin
Station can monitor them
all," said Roslyn Carter of the
Darwin Research Station.
"The naturalist guides aboard
the ship are our eyes, ears and
hands. Their information is
absolutely invaluable."
Not only does the GEII
assist with research pro-
grams, the ship itself was
specifically designed and
built for eco-tourism opera-
tions while providing envi-
ronmental education and
interpretation. The ship car-
ries only 100 passengers. The
Darwin Station staff hopes
this new breed of tour opera-
tor will set the standard for
others, with its dedication to
"low impact nature travel."

Health savings accounts come in handy


JIM MILLER
",. :.! r, i'J l


' Dear Savvy Senior,
My wife and I would like to
retire next year but are con-
cerned about finding affordable
health insurance. We are both in
our late 50s and will lose our
company insurance when we
retire. I've read that health-sav-
ings accounts may be a good
thing for people in our situation.
What can you tell me about this?
- Healthy but Uninsured
Dear Uninsured,
For early retirees who are
healthy, a health-savings
account (HSA) can be a
smart option to help lower
your insurance costs while
you wait for your Medicare
coverage. Here's what you
should know.

HSA
The biggest reason more
people don't retire.before age
65 is lack of health insurance.
Unless your former
employer provides you
retiree health insurance or
you take a part-time job that


It's all from the gene pool


provides some coverage,
you're pretty much on your
own. If you're thinking about
buying health insurance on
your own, you can lower your
premiums significantly by
raising your deductible,
which is where an HSA can
come in handy.
Created by the 2003
Medicare Act, an HSA is tax-
free savings account that's
Stied to a high-deductible
health plan. How it works is
you first purchase a health
Insurance policy with a
deductible of at least $1,000
for an individual or $2,000 for
a family. Then you open an
HSA, which is a tax-sheltered
savings account (similar to
an IRA) that you can with-
draw from, anytime, tax-free
to pay for medical expenses
that aren't covered by your
high-deductible health plan.
And, whatever money you
don't use rolls over from year-
to-year, providing you with a
stash of cash for your later
retirement years.
Each year you can fund
your HSA with tax-deductible
contributions, which in 2006
can be up to the amount of
the deductible, but not more
than $2,700 for individuals or
$5,450 for families, and if
you're 55 and older, you can
make an additional contribu-
tion of $700.

What's covered?
HSAs can be used to pay
your health plan deductible,

Savvy tip
HSAs are best suited for


healthier people who typical-
ly don't spend a lot on med-
ical care. To help determine
what's best for you, add up
one year of out-of-pocket
costs under your current
health plan (including premi-
ums, deductibles, co-pays
and uncovered medical
expenses) and compare it to
what you would have paid
with a high deductible health
plan and a HSA.

suppose some of them were
journalists also?. I heard
recently that chimpanzees
waged war, not for loot or
food, but for political reasons.
Maybe there were chim-
panzee reporters watching
the chimpanzee wars? I
dunno.
Did you know that pigs are
some of the most intelligent
animals, after man? Scientists
say pig's immune systems are
very close to that of humans.
Being related to a chim-
panzee is bad enough. I really
don't want to think I am relat-
ed to a pig.
So Geri wants to knowwhy
we look so different. Is it real-
ly all in the genes? Sometimes
we look different because we
have changed our bodies with
face lifts, tummy tucks and
muscle-building hormones.
I have had two cornea
transplants that turned my
eye color from brown to blue.
But how do I even know
someone's eyes are really


blue? After all, they might
have blue contacts that they
got from a store and not from
genes.
How many of us wish we
hadn't inherited one of our
parent's qualities, like my big
hips? I always wanted to be
tall and willowy, but instead I
am a bit on the heavy side. My
friend Fran has beautiful
curly hair and once had.it
straightened so she would
look like other girls. Are we
ever satisfied in how we look?
Did you ever wonder why
your brothers and sisters look
so different than you? Like
Susie's freckles, Chuck's red
hair and my big hips, it is all in
the genes Geri, it's all in the
genes.

Relaxing in Bangkok


BY CAROL PUCCI
GUEST WRITER

The man with the white
beard stopped his bike on the
bridge where I was watching
two boys wrestle a salmon
onto the beach.
Reaching into the pocket of
his blue jumpsuit, he pulled
out a plastic bag filled with
strips of smoked fish.
"How'd you do this sea-
son?" I asked.
"Nothing to brag about,
but nothing to throw back,"
he replied, handing me a
sample. "Just finished smok-
ing it this morning."
He rolled a cigarette and
introduced himself as Larry
Story, ex-Missourian and fish-
erman extraordinaire.
As it turned out, he had
plenty to brag about. The king
salmon run was especially
good this year, and Story, 58,
caught several big ones just by
parking himself on a lawn
chair and casting his line over
the bridge above the slough
that the fishermen share with
kayakers and bird-watchers.
Everyone in Alaska, it
seems, has a fish (or some
other) story to tell, and in
Seldovia, population 300, a
stranger is the perfect audi-
ence.
Perched at the mouth of
Kachemak Bay at the tip of
the Kenai Peninsula, its clos-
est neighbor is Homer, a town
of 4,000 at the westernmost-
point of North America's
highway system, literally the
end of the road.
Seldomia lies 16 miles be-
yond, surrounded mostly but
not quite entirely by water,
and reachable only by air or
sea weather permitting.
"You look to the west and
.you see water. You look north,:
ourh, and east arid. u see
wilderness," says City Man-
ager Kun Reynertson. "We are
truly a community surround-
ed by wilderness."
A fishing village with a
Russian heritage, this is a
town that attracts a different
kind of Alaska tourist -
someone in search of what
this part of the state was like
before highways and big-box
stores, $400-a-day bear-view-
ing excursions and $600-a-
night luxury lodges.
With almost everything of
interest within about an 8-
square-mile area, Seldovia is
more about soaking up na-
ture in peaceful surroundings
bird-watching, kayaking
through secluded lagoons,
hiking, beachcombing and
getting to know something
about the kinds of people
who make Alaska their home.
S "How much fish are you
bringing back?" is a common
question the pilots ask when
they ferry passengers back to
Homer after a weekend in
Seldovia.
With salmoni running from
late May through August and
halibut year-round, fishing is
the major pastime. A handful
of charter boats operate out of
a pocket harbor in a sheltered
cove on Seldovia Bay. Tides
swing from a minus 5 to a plus
22 and the water is so clear it
seems as if you could grab a
salmon with your hands.
There's plenty for nonfish-
ers to do, too. Kirby and Lynn

ON THE ROAD AGAIN TOURS
(Until Biloxi Recovers)


A few blocks from town is
the start of the 1.5-mile
Otterbahn hiking trail leading
through spruce forests filled'
with wild blueberries and
salmonberries and over
boardwalks built across la-
goons to the beaches of
Kachemak Bay.
The main commercial strip
is Main Street, which runs for
about a mile along the water-
front. There's a museum run
by the Seldovia Native Asso-
ciation, a few gift shops and
the Tide Pool restaurant,
where I sampled reindeer
sausage and "drunken" mus-
sels, caught locally and
steamed in beer.
Perhaps the town's most
unusual shop is the Alaska
Tribal Cache berry kitchen
and store, where members of
the Seldovia Village Tribe
(people of Aleut, Indian and
Eskimo descent make up
about 30 percent of the popu-
lation) use family recipes to
make jelly from sea kelp and
syrups and jams from wild
berries.
Mostly though, Seldovia
seems to pride itself in what it
doesn't have: no traffic lights,
no lawyers, only one bar, one
cement truck.
Wildlife? Black bears are
around, but tourists rarely
encounter them. Bald eagles
(the chamber of commerce
says there are 50) and sea
birds are more common.
Most tourists arrive on
wildlife-watching trips by
boat across Kachemak Bay
from Homer, but the \iew is
more impressive at 2,000 feet,
and it's yours for $30 a hop
and the answers to a few per-
sonal questions.
"How much do you
weigh?" the clerk at Smokey
Bay Air asked when I called
fora reservadop.
'The airline's six-seater Ces-
snas have a 1,000-pound
limit, including cargo -
which, in addition to luggage
on the day I flew, included
boxes of soy milk and bottles
of detergent being flown over
from Homer.
Owned and run mainly by
women, Smokey Bay operates
the equivalent of yellow cabs
with wings, ferrying passen-
gers back and forth on 15-
minute runs across the bay.
You could pay for an offi-
cial sightseeing flight, but as I
buckled in next to pilot Tina
Sawtelle, I had a hard time
seeing how the views could
get much better.
Laced between mountain
peaks were ice fields and glac-
iers. Below was the Homer
spit, a 4.5-mile long sandbar
that juts into the bay like a
twisting finger. Almost as fast
as we climbed, we descended,
over a lagoon a few hundred
feet from Seldovia's gravel
runway.
Seldovia's name comes
from the Russian word for
"herring," and was given to
the town by explorers in the
late 1700s who discovered
coal in the area and a bay
teeming with herring, writes
Mary Glover, chamber presi-
dent, in the Seldovia Summer
Gazette, a newspaper that's
distributed free to tourists.

The Russians left when the
United States purchased
Alaska, and the herring even-
tually disappeared, but Sel-
dovia became a busy seaport.
Fish canneries and busi-
nesses set on pilings flour-
ished along a picturesque
wooden boardwalk, and it
was Seldovia, one of the
largest cities in Alaska with a
population of 2,000, not
Homer, that became the
Kenai's major commercial
hub.
Things began to change
with the building of a road
from Anchorage to Homer.
The two towns reversed roles
for good when high tides
washed out most of Seldovia's
boardwalk after a 1964 earth-
quake sunk the land mass by
4 feet.
When.I booked a room at
Susan Mumma's Seldovia
Rowing Club, I won the privi-
lege of spending the night in,
one of the few remaining
structures that survived the
earthquake.
The three-story gray bun-
galow decorated with fishing
nets and perched on stilts
above the slough at the south
end of town was the Kenai
Peninsula's first B&B when
Mumma, 56, opened it in
1980.
A painter and retired art
teacher, she moved to Sel-
dovia 30 years ago after visit-
ing the island on a class trip.
After the earthquake, the
Army Corps of Engineers
shored up a small section of
the boardwalk, and Mumma's
house was saved along with a
handful of cabins and boat
sheds.
"A woman at age 26 getting
a loan was hard enough," she
recalls,-"but a woman of 26
getting aloan on a house on
.;til ,nSeldovia, Alaska -
that was quite a feat. But I did
it."
Half English cottage, half
beach cabin, her B&B "isn't
the fanciest in town," she
says,"'but it's the most his-
torid." .
These days, she has plenty
of competition. There's a hotel
and a half-dozen more B&Bs,
including one "tent and
breakfast," as more travelers
discover Seldovia's simple
pleasures.
That's a good thing as far as
most are concerned. Without
tourists, who would the locals
have to listen to their stories?
"Going to the airport?" the
man in the car asked after I
checked out of Mumma's B&B
the next morning and was
walking with my overnight
bag to catch my plane back to
Homer.
He introduced himself as
Gerry Willard. He grew up in
Tacoma, Wash., and moved
here in 1972 to work for the
electric company.
"What's time's your flight?"
he asked. "A half an hour?
Plenty of time for a little tour

around Seldovia."
Willard drove me past a
spot near the runway with a
tide pool swarming with
salmon. Then he pulled up in
front of his personal pride
and joy, the airport outhouse.
As people do in a small
town, he made a volunteer
project out of sprucing it up.
He painted it robin's-egg blue
with a bucket of donated
paint and decorated the out-
side with a wooden anchor
and two American flags.
It looked so nice, some did-
n't recognize it as an out-
house; so he added block let-
ters spelling out the words for
"bathroom" in English, Span-
ish and Alaskan native.
"Someone wanted me to
add it in French," he said, "but
that's where I drew the line."

BYTERRI SCHLICHENMEYER
GUEST COLUMNIST


Brace yourself.
It's not going to be long
before somebody's going to
be asking you what kind of
New Year's resolution you
made. Did you decide to give
up smoking? Will you try to
exercise more? Have you
vowed to save more money or
save your sanity with more
patience?
Maybe you're planning on
becoming more extraordi-
nary. That might be easier
than you think, according to
author Kevin O'Keefe. In his


new book "The Average
American", you'll see that you
may already be outside of
"normal".
O'Keefe says his Author's
Note that he has always
strived to be above average,
even when younger. For most
of his life, he consciously
avoided anything that was
the norm.
"Average" was definitely
not a word he wanted any-
where near his name.
But somebody has to be
average or there would be no
benchmark for. all those sta-
tistics that are collected every
year. With this in mind,


O'Keefe started looking for
the most average person in
America. He began with the
Census Bureau in Maryland
and his Uncle Wally in north-
ern Massachusetts.
Uncle Wally sure seemed
average. He lived his life in the
state in which he was born (as
do 60 percent of Americans)
and when he died, he expired
at the exact same age as the
average American life-span
(76.9 years).
In northern New York,
O'Keefe narrowed his possi-
bilities when he learned that
the average American mar-
ries at least once (90 percent


of us) and that most Amer-
icans are parents. In Prince
George's County, Maryland,
he explored religion (80 per-
cent of us believe in God). In
Nevada, he learned that most
of us own our own homes (70
percent), and that 75 percent
of Americans who win at lot-
teries or casinos are broke
within five years. In Kansas,
he learned that every eight
seconds,'another baby boom-
er turns 50 years old.
Through his travels and his
research, O'Keefe winnows
down the possibilities until he
finds the person who fits all
the criteria.


The answer surprised
O'Keefe and brought him
almost to his own back yard.
"The Average American" is
a tough book to describe.
Even tougher will be deciding
whether or not you'll enjoy it.
On one hand, it's a trivia
buff's dream with all sorts of
silly stats and interesting facts
that are fun to read.
O'Keefe uses real informa-
tion to back up his research,
so his reasoning is sound
when he rejects cities or peo-
ple based on an out-of-the-
ordinary existence.
I found that stuff pretty
amazing.


On the other hand, the
beginning of this book is dry,
which may make it difficult
for you to "get in to" it.
While it does get better and
while there are passages that
are somewhat lighthearted,
the book is still about as
much fun as a college lecture:
fascinating sometimes, un-
bearably dull at others.
If you're delighted by cur-
rent events and enjoy know-
ing the minuciae of everyday
life, resolve to read this book.
If you crave more excitement,
you'lll find "The Average
American" to be quite below
average.

Hartz names Venice doctor Veterinarian of the Year;


STAFF REPORT
Dr.Michael Reinhart, a
passionate hurricane
relief volunteer, has
been named Veterinarian of
the Year for 2006 by The Hartz
Mountain Corporation.
Hartz created its "Veteri-
narian of theYear" program in
2001 to honor veterinarians
who have demonstrated an
outstanding commitment to
patients, their families and to
their communities.
Reinhart balances his com-
munity outreach efforts while
running his veterinary medi-
cine practice at the Jacaranda
Animal Hospital in, Venice,
Fla., which he opened 20years
ago. A graduate of the Uni-
versity of Florida College of
Veterinary Medicine; Reinhart
is also heavily involved in
youth and educational pro-
grams in his area, routinely
speaking to children at local
schools about the veterinary
profession and animal care
and encouraging students to


shadow him in his clinic.
Reinhart's relief efforts
began during Hurricane Char-
ley, one of the most des-
tructive and devastating hurri-
canes to ever hit the United
States. His home of Southwest
Florida has been hit with nine
storms in the past 14 months.
Reinhart and his staff mobi-
lized immediately after the
storm. Driving into total dev-
astation, they began to pull
out people and their animals
trapped in their homes.
Within 24 hours, he helped set
up a mobile, round-the-clock
clinic to treat the animals that
had been lost or injured dur-
ing the storm.
After Charley, Dr. Reinhart
spent three Weeks in the hurri-
cane-damaged area providing
veterinary services and work-
ing with thousands of local
volunteers to help area resi-
dents find lost pets, adopt or-
phaned ones and to begin put-
ting their lives back together.
"Dr. Reinhart's dedication
to his profession and his com-

Reinhart received the honor at the North American Veterinary
Conference on Jan. 8 in Kissimmee.


munity has touched the lives
of many in their hour ofneed,"
said Dr. Albert Ahn, Vice
President of Communications
at Hartz. "He is an example to
us all of how we should react
in times of crisis to help
those in need get back on their
feet in any way we can."
Hartz has on ongoing com-
mitment to animal disaster
preparedness through its "Vet
Pals" program and other ini-
tiatives. Hartz Vet Pals are
plush dog toys wearing veteri-
nary scrubs with the logo of
the American Veterinary
Medical Foundation (AVMF),
which supports programs that
aid animals endangered by
natural and manmade disas-
ters. A portion of the proceeds
from each Hartz Vet Pal sold is
donated to the AVME
As 2006 Veterinarian of the
Year, Reinhart will work with
Hartz on disaster prepared-
ness initiatives.
Reinhart was nominated
for the award by Deborah
Whitman, a longtime client


who praised not only his diag-
nostic and surgical abilities.
but also his dediEation to his
patients and community. "
This year, Hartz received
nearly 1,000 nominations
from individuals seeking re-
cognition for their veterinari-
an's outstanding contribu-
tions. Applicants are asked to
describe their reasons fdr
nominating their veterinariari
The nominated veterinarians
are then asked to respond to a
series of questions about their
clinical experiences, volunteer
work and their definition df
the human-animal bond.
Reinhart will receive a grand
prize of $5,000. $
The runners up were Dr.
James Zgoda of the Otterkill
Animal Hospital in Campbell
Hall, N.Y., and Dr. Ava Frick df
the Animal Fitness Center in
Union, Miss.
The Hartz Mountain Coi-
poration is the leading manu-
facturer and marketer of pet
care products in the United
States and Canada.

jand for wildlife. Under the
,strict Audubon rules, bird
houses must be hung in trees
.lining the fairways, the native
habitat preserved for birds
and other animals, and
chemicals kept away from the
waterways.
This landscape .renais-
sance has taken more than
three years to complete and
yill continue throughout the
community.
L Such environmental con-
,sciousness has made the club
more economically efficient
and self-sustaining for its irri-
gation needs. Instead of hav-
,ng all runoff water overflow
back into the Myakka River
where it would, produce a
,negative impact upon the
river and Charlotte Harbor, it
-redirected its runoff into a
l-andfill lake that is adjacent to
,jhe property in which they
.tored their storm runoff
'water. To accommodate the
additional runoff water, the
-club raised the water level in
!jhe lake by 1 foot. The stored
[water is now used for irriga-
i'on overhand over again.
I surveyed some of the
golfers about how the
changess have affected their
_play. The consensus is that the
course is more playable. Trees
ijhat used to obstruct play
have been removed. The
number 10 signature island
hole tee boxes are bigger and
-the practice range is longer.
In addition, a chipping
area was built and "classy"
-granite hole markers were
,installed.
To keep the new course in
.#p-top shape, each hole is
cared for by a designated
group of members who make
sure that divots are replaced
_nd trash removed daily. All
,his work is voluntary.
Driving through VG&CC, I
continually notice the energy
.present throughout this "to
.small to be large and too large
3o be small" hamlet.
o, Seven-year resident Pat
1Miller enlightened me about
4le social/management side
lEf Ith i dub. > Dressedlin,; her
tennis whites and ready-to
play a couple of sets in the
early afternoon. I could tell it
took energy like hers to run
-the countless committees
that are the foundation of this
!;thriving club. -.
There are committees of
resident volunteers to oversee
Almost everything. Froi wel-
'coming new homeowners to
Sthe community to organizing
,-holiday functions, the volun-
teers enhance the social fab-
ric of the community. If there
!:is a need. they find a way.
l Miller seems to thrive on
Zall she does. She said each of
the five maintenance-free,
micro-communities at the
club, has developed a life of its
own. There's Wellington,
Vestavia, Wentworth, Cheval
& Landsbrook. Each runs at
its own pace, has its own ritu-
als, and therefore priorities
and spends accordingly. I can
isee how the maintenance fees
for each community ended
.up being so different. One
pf the club's newest goals is to
Raise money for its newVenice
;Golf & Country Club Com-
nmunity Foundation, which
i as created to improve the
_quality of life, locally and
nationallyy, through philan-
thropy. Modeled after a simi-
lar foundation at The
Plantation Country Club, its
mission meshes perfectly
_with those of resident club
_members who already devote
,much time and energy to
Community service programs.
For its first event, the founda-
tion held an art auction to
_benefit Loveland Legacy, an
,endowment fund that bene-
fits the Loveland Center for
developmentally handicap-
ped citizens.
-, Since there is more to life at
VG(,CC than golf, tennis and
,und-raising, other commit-
tees plan parties and other


formed about all these vari-
ous activities..
During the season, the
dining room is so busy you
have to call to make a reserva-
tion early if you wish to par-
take in its tasty cuisine and
good cheer.
Countless rituals take
place daily, from Friday night
dinners with the guys at the
club to the annual Easter egg
hunts set up for the growing
number of children who

ran


more and more often fre-
quent the club, especially
during holiday periods.
Now well into the club's
second decade, members can
celebrate the club's turn-
around, which was no easy
task, politically, financially
nor physically.
Walking the golf course at
sunset, enjoying the sweep-
ing views and rolling hills, I
contemplate the residents I
have met here and somehow


feel the need to take up golf
- but not just anywhere.

ONE LAST WORD


"This benefit of seeing... can come only if you pause a while,
extricate yourself from the maddening mob of quick impressions
ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet
image... the viewer must be willing to pause, to look again, to
meditate." Dorothea Lange, Photographer (1895-1965)


The Fox Lea Farms Winter Circuit, an
American Quarter Horse Association-approved
event, will conclude today.
The horse show will be held from 8 a.m.
until dusk.
Competitors from all over the United States
are competing in the event, which began
Thursday.
American Quarter Horse shows test horses'
abilities in several events, including the halter
competition shown here, which judges the
horses on balance, muscling and breed
characteristics.
The public is invited to attend. The cost
is $3.
