"It's a ideal .property for

It was February 2005 when
Thompson announced the


Nokomis location was to
close. Later in the year devel-

WHERE TO WALK? NO CONCRETE SOLUTION


Unpaved, with

Some island residents are pushing to revive a
sidewalk-installation program for pedestrian
safety, but others think encouraging foot traffic

poses safety problems.

BYJJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Like many fenice resi-
dents, Evelyn Barritt looks
forward to her daily walks on
the island to watch the sun
rise, visit with neighbors and
get a little fresh air.
Those walks have come at
the, price of a limp from an
accident four years ago
when, while walking along
Bayshore Drive, she tripped
and broke her hip attempt-
ing to get out of the way of
oncoming cars.
There are no sidewalks in
her residential neighbor-
hood along Bayshore, Park
Boulevard and Laguna
Drive, where pedestrians are
forced to share a narrow,
bermless two-lane road with
cars.
,Barritt, of 416 Park Blvd.,,
testified before the Senior
Living Committee this week


that she's not the most grace-
ful person, and could have
just as easily fallen and bro-
ken her hip on sidewalk.
But with a sidewalk she
wouldn't have been stranded
on the roadway, unable to
move, worrying if oncoming
cars could see her.
"I was so worried about
being run over," Barritt said
of her experience. "It was in
the middle of the street, it
was by an intersection and
the sun was just coming up.
... It was very scar."
Barritt took heart four
years ago when Sarasota
County surveyed and
marked out sidewalks for
that stretch of road. Despite
being within city limits, the
county remains responsible
for these sidewalks and resi-
dental roads.

Man says VFW owes him cash or free beer


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


What would you rather
have -- the $4,500 you believe
somebody owes you, or a card
that says "Free beer for life?"
If you are 72-year old
Richard Lusk, a 38-year dis-
abled Veterans of Foreign
Wars Post 8118 member (Kor-
ea, eight years U.S. Navy), the
answer is simple enough.
"I'll take the card that says
'Free beer for life'," Lusk said.
"That's the least they could do
after all I have done for them,
plus I really don't need the
money.
Lusk's story is that in 1996,


the \FW was on the skids and
threatening to close.
"We were at the bar and
made a deal, me, .Post Com-
mander) Rick Bradley and
(Quartermaster) Bert Wright.
a handshake," Lusk said. "I
told them I would lend them
money to pay the bartenders
so we could keep the place
open."
Loan or not?
Present Post Commander
Jim Mlowat said it wasn't quite
like that.
"He didn't bail anybody
out, and we were in no danger
of closing," Mowat said.
"Everybody but him denies


such a deal was cut."
Lusk has eight receipts that
show varying amounts of
money he gave to the VFW
totaling a little less than
$4,500. All but one of the re-
ceipts was marked "Donation
for Payrol."
Lusk said he has given
more than $9,000 to the VFW
over the years for one thing or
another. However, he claims
the $4,500 to pay the bar-
tenders in 1996 was a loan.
"I kept telling them it was a
loan," Lusk said, though he
acknowledges the post has
rejected his claim.

Pilots lament the loss of vehicle access for their
family members, as the airport adopts tighter
security measures.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


The angst brought on by
Sept. 11 may have subsided,
but that doesn't mean things
will go back to the way they
were at Venice Nlunicipal
Airport before the attacks.
After less than a year on
the job, airport manager Fred


Watts has come up with a
new access policy.
The policy was approved
by the Airport Advisory Board
on Wednesday and moves
next to Venice City Council for
final approval.
Since Watts arrived in Feb-
ruary there has been a small
but steady stream of com-
plaints from a few pilots


unhappy with his by-the-
book approach. Prior to Sept.
11, pilots were used to having
unlimited access to airport
grounds not only for them-
selves, but for their families.
Pilot Robert Szymanski
complained to the board for
the second time on Wednes-
day. He wants his wife issued
a new access card, something
Warts is unwilling to do.
Szymanski said the new
rules put too much power in

Mobile home owners facing stiff fines


From the an. 16,1975, Venice Gondolier Sun.


STAFF REPORT


Mobile home owners in
Venice could face up to a half
million dollars in fines if they
don't pay their mobile home
tag fees.
Former Venice Police Chief
John Shockey and City Clerk
Steve Albee said hundreds of
mobile home owners have
failed to purchase 1975 tags


or display them.
"These people face a mini-
mum fine of $15 per day
under state law for every day
that the tags haven't been
displayed," Albee said.
"The minimum fine is set
.by the state. The fines could
be much higher for each
day," he added. Tags should
have been purchased by
Aug. 20, 1974.


Albee said an inspection of
the parks will be conducted
Feb. 1. All offenders will be
prosecuted. The minimum
fine for the 164 delinquent
days would be $2,640.
"The law also provides for
a jail sentence," Albee said.
The city clerk said he
believes a number of the
offenders are hoping to buy
half-year tags. The law, how-'
ever, states that only newly
purchased homes may buy


half-year tags.
Delinquent tags will be
charged the full fee, Albee
warned.
The city will also receive
more than $8,000 in back tag
-fees from Sarasota County, it
was reported at Tuesday's
council meeting.
The county had collected
the tag fees, but failed to
return them to the city as
required: City officials claim
the county actually has


Sometimes, to appreciate
what we take for granted, it's
necessary to put things in
perspective.
Yes, it was a bit chilly
Thursday morning here. We
needed to put on a jacket to
retrieve the newspaper. But
just look at what was going
on elsewhere.
In the Northeast, winds
gusted to 85 mph, blowing
trucks off the road, messing
up commuter traffic and
knocking out power. Those
were cold winds, too. Snow
fell in Ohio. And in Russia,
people are dying on the
streets in a severe cold snap.
So our 40 degrees doesn't
look so bad, does it? Besides,
it's history. We'll be in the

Bright idea


Tax to fund sheriff's



office still alive


Several commissioners believe a special
taxing unit should pay for the sheriff's budget.
It would appear as a line item and fee on
tax bills mailed to all property owners.


BYJACK GURNEY

The Venice Gondolier Sun is running this photo for entry into the Inland Press
Association's 2006 Print Quality Competition, Color Division.


A long-simmering internal
dispute about how Sarasota
County should pay for an
elected sheriff's department
is finally bubbling up to the
level of a full-blown political
debate, and could lead to a
separate fee for services on
annual property tax bills.
On Jan. 10, the county com-
mission asked for options it
could consider in a future dis-
cussion about the formation
of a special taxing district -
also known as a municipal
services taxing unit that
would remove the sheriff's
department
from the
county's gen-
eral operating
budget.
It was the
second time
in two months
the subject
has come up,
and a sober- Balkwill
ing reminder
to both County Administrator
Jim Ley and Sheriff Bill
Balkwill that the issue will not
go away. On Nov. 8, the com-
mission asked for ordinance
information it has yet to re-
ceive.
"We never took a vote on
an MSTU for the sheriff,"
commissioner Nora Patter-
son recalled.
When commissioner Shan-
non Staub asked if she really
wanted to take a vote on the
issue, Patterson responded,


"I'm willing."
The brief exchange brought
Commissioner Paul Mercier
into the debate.
"Me, too," he said, indicat-
ing that he would like to con-
sider a special taxing district
for the sheriff.
Whether there are three
commission votes to actually
establish a separate fee re-
mains to be seen.
"I'm perfectly willing to
wade into this subject," Pat-
terson said. But she ac-
knowledged, "Any discussion
about the sheriff's budget will
raise the dual taxation issue
(between Sarasota city and
county taxpayers who pay for
the sheriff's services)."
Dual taxation?
City officials have long
argued Sarasota police are
paid by city taxpayers to patrol
within the municipal limits,
and city property owners
shouldn't also have to pay
sheriff's .deputies for road
patrol services that are only
provided outside the muni-
cipal limits.
A dual taxation lawsuit
between the city and county
was settled after a 1984 Flor-
ida Supreme Court decision
affirmed the sheriff's road
patrol and detective divisions
provide a "minimal, level" of
direct benefit and substantial
degree of indirect benefit to
city residents.
On Oct. 21, County At-
torney Steve DeMarsh issued
a legal opinion that stated an
MSTU could be established


by the county
commission
that appears
as a line item
in the annual
budget and
raises enough
revenue to pay
for the sheriff's
budget. : Patterson
On Nov. 8,
the commission agreed to
have fiscal officials report on
the ordinance changes nec-
essary to establish an MSTU
for the sheriff's department,
but there was no indication
a majority supported estab-
lishing one. And there still
isn't.
The sheriff's budget de-
bate first surfaced last May
when Balkwill asked for an
annual increase from $75.8
million to $84.9 million. After
several weeks of nego-
tiations, he compromised
and accepted $81.2 million
for the current fiscal year.
If the county attempts to
create an MSTU for the
sheriff's budget, it can only
be used to collect revenue in
the municipalities if city offi-
cials agree. And city officials
would probably attempt to
negotiate some tax relief for
road patrol services that are
not provided.

Closed-meeting records kept under wraps


A month after pleading guilty to federal charges,
the city remains unwilling to release transcripts
of closed-door negotiations during a criminal
investigation of its utilities department.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Local government officials
are not ready to release tran-
scripts of private meetings
that led to Venice pleading
guilty last month td violat-
ing Environmental Protection
Agency laws.
Florida law allows these
attorney-client sessions be-
tween legal counsel and city
council members called
shade meetings to be kept
private until court actions
Sareresolved.
Venice paid $110,000 in
fines for violating EPA per-
mits in 2002, opened itself up
to stricter regulations and
promised to assist federal.


prosecutors in the investiga-
tion and prosecution of em-
ployees and officials who
participated in the violations.
Those people were identified
only as The
Executive
Group in the
city's! plea
agreement.**
The city's
commitment
to helping
prosecute
individuals
responsible is Black,
what's hold-
ing up the release of the
transcripts, according to City
Manager Marty Black..
"People have to keep in
mind, we committed with


federal authorities to aid in
the future prosecution," Black
said. "While people have the
right to these documents, it's
become a timing issue. ... We
need to make sure our ac-
tions do not adversely affect
their (federal investigators')
activities."
When asked for his legal
opinion on whether the city
can release the documents,
City Attorney Bob Anderson
said he will not reach a firm
legal decision until today
(Friday).
A look inside
Black has stated on several
occasions that no current
employee or city official is the
target of federal prosecutors
and the EPA investigation,
All of this dates back to
actions in 2002. Venice admit-
ted that it dumped too much
treated wastewater called
reclaimed water into Curry
Creek and a county park,


and then forged documents
sent to the EPA.
In more than three years
of lawsuits and investiga-
tions, the city has spent an
estimated $1 million in civil
lawsuit settle-
Cs ments, crimi-
nal fines, legal
fees and en-
vironmental
mitigation
penalties..
The city has
,not acknowl-
edged it
Anderson caused envi-
ronmental
damage with these actions.
Either formally or inform-
ally, the Venice Gondolier Sun
and other media outlets have
requested the transcripts,
which detail the conversa-
tions of elected officials, city
administrators and legal staff
as a plea deal was hammered
out.
At one point, the second


EPA Shade Meeting transcript
was missing because the court
reporter never transcribed it
before leaving to take another
job. The city manager con-
firmed Thursday the audio
recording had been recovered,
and it's being transcribed.
John Patten of veniceflori-
da.com has threatened to file
criminal charges against the
city if it does not release the
documents.
"I am, painfully and with
a greatdeal of
reservation,
considering
the filing of a
criminal com- -s-..
plaint as out- .'
lined in Chap-
ter 119.10
of the Florida
Statutes," Pat-
ten said. "This Patten
is an option of
last resort, one that I would
hope that I never have to
use, but if the wall of silence


continues, it is the only lo-
gical and available rext step
in the process of trying to
obtain these documents."
In an e-mail late Thursday,
the city manager responded
to Patten's threat of legal
action and stated that he
would not "allow anyone's
personal or other agenda to
adversely effect" the signed.
plea agreement.
"Your request is being
handled through the appro-
priate city official and threats
or attempts at intimidation
will not change our approach
or response," Black wrote.
"Frankly, I am surprised that
you do not personally recog-
nize the sensitivity and im-
portance for the city to main-
tain its cooperation and
communication with the fed-
eral agencies."

County to fight attack on home-rule power


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


Home-rule authority is the
premise behind having a
charter county government.
Such rule could be threat-
ened if a concentrated effort
by members of the Florida
League of Cities is successful.
So-called "charter pre-
emption legislation" could
nullify the ordinances under
which the counties govern
themselves and their resi-
dents.
The legislation is being
promoted by lobbyists for
the Florida League of Cities
as a way to fight back against
counties for sometimes op-
ipressive land-management
Decisions, a League, ofCities
statement explains.
Sarasota County is one of


,19 charter counties in the
state. County Administrator
Jim Ley received permission
from the county commis-
sioners during their Jan. 10
board meeting to pay $5,000
to join a lobbying effort to
thwart the legislation.
Ley said charter govern-
ment allows voters to set their
own standards.
"This would erode the fun-
demental citizens' authority
to address any issue," he Said.
The biggest issue that
prompted the consideration
of such legislation is the re-
cent trend of annexation by
cities and the fight over the
use of tax money being kept
within the newly annexed
developments.
"When a city,? annexes
land, the city and county
always disagree about the

use of the tax money," said
Kristin Vallese, a spokes-
woman for the Florida As-
sociation of Counties.
Vallese said the counties
typically must take into con-
sideration the infrastructure
costs the new development
will have on the entire re-
gion while cities see the tax
money as ideal for different
uses.
"We went through a tough
annexation with Thomas
Ranch and if this were to
pass, we would not have a
say in anything," Ley said.
Vallese said blocking the
legislation would protect the
essence of charter county
government. If it is approved,


she said counties would
have to put every ordinance
back up for a full vote.
charter counties use the
elected-commission system
and have a strict set of rules
regarding public input to get
issues into ordinance.
'A real threat'
The board was initially
wary to start a fight with
cities over such an issue.
'Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton liked the idea of fighting
for the county's rights, since
they are not, trying to gain
anything from it.
"We are trying to main-
tain the existing conditions,"
Thaxton said.

,Ley said that hiring an
outside lobbyist puts such
legislation in the forefront
for legislators in Tallahassee.
"Taking it out of the larg-
er League of Cities agenda
makes it a, real threat," he
said. "It creates a blinding
focus by hiring outside
counsel. We just want to do
the same."
Through Thursday, eight
of the 19 charter county gov-
ernments had agreed to join
forces in the lobbying effort,
Vallese said. She said that
number is likely to increase
before the state Legislature
meets for its upcoming ses-
sion.

but never made it very far,
but this effort is different,
and :poses a new threat,"
Vallese said.
Ley considers being part
of the effort to block the leg-
islation as essential to the
preservation of the county
home-rule.
He could not offer the
commissioners any assur-
ances about the success of
the lobbying effort. -
"We need to be sure not
to use up political capital if
this isn't going to get very
far," he said. "But then again,
it is something that is too
important to ignore."

Friedman: It's a



right-brain world


Award winning author Thomas L. Friedman
makes the case for going tech, and in the process
endorses the March education referendum that
supports the NeXt Generation Learning plan.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Will he endorse the refer-
endum or won't he?
That was.the question on
the minds of many as high-
profile author Thomas Fried-
man prepared to speak, a
bodyguard at his side.
It didn't take long for
Friedman to state his posi-
tion. His books share the
same beliefs and concepts
on which Sarasota County
Superintendent Gary Norris
built his NeXt Generation
Learning plan.
"I am here to endorse the
referendum on March 14,"
Friedman told a power-lunch
crowd of more than 500 at
the Chelsea Center in Sarasota
on Thursday.
The March referendum is
about continuation of the
current 1-mill education tax.
If passed by voters, roughly
half of the estimated $250
million raised in the next
four years would go to the
NeXt Generation Learning
plan, designed to upgrade
school technologies and tap
into high-tech learning solu-
tions throughout Sarasota
County.
Setting aside the debate
about how to bring that to
fruition, it was hard to argue
with Friedman's observation


that the Internet has shrunk
the world and created a new,
level (he calls it "flat") playing
field for international com-
petition to flourish.
It's a field on which individ-
uals from around the world
will compete with each other
and Americans for jobs. The
implications, he said, are huge
for education, the workplace
and American Workers.
Key to successfully com-
peting in this high-tech era,
according to Friedman, will
be creating high-tech infra-
structure in schools and the
workplace, and rethinking the
way we teach and collaborate.
The revolution
Disguised by the political
upheaval caused by the Sept.
11 attacks and Enron, noth-
ing short of a revolution has
been occurring, said Fried-
man.
Triggered in 1989 with the
"fall of the wall" in Berlin that
allowed individuals to think
more globally, personal com-
puting and the information
age took a giant leap just six
months later with the release
of Windows 3.0: People could
become authors with control
over their own content in
digital form.
He cites 1995 as another
landmark, when Netscape
went public. Netscape created


the first commercial Internet
browser that brought the
Internet to life and triggered
the dot com boom.
Technological advances
continued to fuel more than
$1 trillion in infrastructure
overnight, Friedman said,
when fiberoptic cables were
laid throughout the world.
Software advances in the '90s
like HTML language and
cross platforms have turbo-
charged the revolution, he
said.
Advances in technology
allowed business to collabo-
rate and compete in newer
ways by outsourcing, off-
shoring, uploading, supply-
chaining and insourcing.
Gutenberg moment
Friedman gave example
after example of how foreign
businesses are taking advan-
tage of technology to surpass
America in many industries,
and win jobs based on their
technical preparation.
To stay competitive, said
Friedman, America needs to
invest in high-tech infrastruc-
ture like bandwidth; empha-
size education to support
collaborative activities; and
provide leadership to help
manage the flow of the new
collaborations.
"We went through- this
when the country moved
from steam to electricity,"
said Friedman. "The produc-
tivity boost didn't come im-
mediately."
"I am convinced you are
at the beginning of a Guten-
berg moment. This is just the

end of the beginning...."
China, India and Soviet
states have just walked out
onto the platform, said Fried-
man. Today there is no such
thing as an American job.
There are just jobs that our
children will compete with
others for around the globe.
Businesses of the future
will look to hire employees
with the best survival skills


- those who are great
adaptors, great explainers of
complexity, those with great
passion, and persons skilled
in everything and anything
that is environmentally green.
What advice does Fried-
man have for kids and their
parents? Find out who the
kids say are their favorite
teachers, and take their class-
es, no matter the content.


Teachers who love to learn
have passion and instill that
passion in others.
"That's why teaching and
teachers are so important.
Do what you love. It's a
right-brain world. That's
where the jobs and the fu-
ture are," Friedman said.
You can watch Fried-
man's presentation in its en-
tirety March 5 on Channel 20.

The property is suited for
up to 20 residential condo-
miniums, a night club or sup-
per club, or car dealership,
according to Hamilton. Some
months ago he announced
plans for a motel at the loca-
tion, but has since decided he
prefers to let someone else do
it.
"If for some reason it does-
n't sell, I will tear it down and
build professional condos,"
said Hamilton.
He already has designs for
seven hurricane-proof pro-
fessional office condomini-
ums of 2,500 square feet. The
first floor would have 14-foot
garages capable of housing
RVs, with elevators to second-
floor offices.
Alternatively, if he decides to
build residential condomini-
ums, he plans to seek a vari-
ance on height to allow resi-
dents to enjoy the scenic views
he has seen while flying his
helicopter over the property.
"The future of Venice island
as' a destination location
means property is going to'
appreciate, and I believe for
this venture it needs someone
with a new prospective," said
Hamilton, who acquired the
propertynine years ago.

sale. It is a full liquidation.
"There is no minimum,
but the sale is subject to
Hamilton's approval," said
Neal VanDeRee. "With the
scarcity of land on the island I
have an idea it is worth $3
million-$4 million."
Hamilton's property ad-
joins the former Grin In The
Wind motorcycle business,
which closed some time ago.
It is currently being prepared
by the new owner Ron Perry
as he expands his business
with the February opening of
Venice Island Pit Stop auto
repair.


Excited
Renovations have already


begun at the former 44th Aero
Squadron location, with the
building taking on a whole
new appearance.
On the first floor will be the
Honoluana Island Tiki Bar,
appropriately decorated in
Key West style, with islarid
apparel and surfboards. The
second-floor grill restaurant
will offer a menu well suited
to popular taste and designed
byThompson.
The Honoluana Island
Grill will open for lunch, din-
ner and a special Sunday
brunch. Weekend entertain-
ment and dancing is planned
for 7-11 p.m. downstairs by
the Tiki bar.
"I'm planning a big open-
ing party, with entertainment
in a tent outside, for the end
of February at the latest,"
confirmed Thompson.
He admitted he has been
looking at the location, but it
was not originally available
when he needed it. Until
recently he was planning to
be chef at the new Bellagio
Harbor Village Community
Restaurant slated to open in
February on Blackburn Point
Road in Osprey.
"I'm excited about the new
location at the airport, which
is right down the street from
the beach," said Thompson.
He expects to be hiring 20-
30 people for his new project.

Now, four years later, some
residents are starting the

building more sidewalks, but
we're not," Barritt said.
The beaten path
This is at least the fifth time
within a year residents have*
asked a city board or city
council about the addition of
sidewalks, according to a
review of city council meeting

Three requests have been
for Barritt's residential streets,
one for the Historic Apart-

dez and Armada streets and

district and Venetian Parkway
neighborhoods.
None of these sidewalk
projects is moving forward.
Council members and City
Manager Marty Black sent
residents back to their neigh-
borhoods and urged them to
begin sidewalk petition dri-
ves.
Black said Venice needs a
"clear majority". of property
owners along a street to sup-
port the idea in order to build
city sidewalks or advocate for
county-built sidewalks.,
"It's an issue of where do
you go in and retrofit?" Black
said in an interview. "Do they

no problem," he said.
"I think it's a little dracon-
ian. This could lead to con-
frontations that may be arbi-
trary. It puts too much power
in the hands of one person to
end someone's flying (privi-
leges) in Venice. This needs
some oversight. That's all I am
asking for."
The Airport Tenants Union
agreed, saying the airport man-
ager's refusal to grant access
cards to wives or any other
member of the cardholder's
immediate family doesn't meet
the public benefit and reason-
ableness standards required of
a public airport.
The union also wants
Watts to give unfettered ac-
cess for elderly flyers as a
token of the city's gratitude
for past and continuing sup-
port of the airport.
"We aren't denying anyone
access," Watts said. "We are
denying vehicle access to
nonpilots. A pilot can still
meet family members at the
gate.and escort them on the


grounds at any time."
"I'm concerned with safety
and security. The fewer vehi-
cles there are on the airfield,
the safer it will be for every-
one. Having carte blanche
access is not appropriate. I
don't think the city council
and city manager would dis-
agree."
Watts said the leeway
granted in the policy was nec-
essary to handle incidents on
a case-by-case basis. But he
didn't shut the door com-
pletely on the issue of family
access.
Watch committee
The airport manager is
looking into forming a volun-
teer-driven Airport Watch
Committee to help police the
grounds and alert pilots and
other airport users of minor
infractions and safety con-
cerns.
The committee could also
conduct a driver training pro-
gram, said Watts, that would
be necessary before he would
be willing to grant nonpilots
access across airport runways
that lead to the T-hangars.
"We are being prudent and
careful to make sure people
who on airport grounds have
~ ~ .~ ns.r ,


a reason to be there," Watts
said. "Not everyone who
applies for the training pass,
for example, would get one.
There's no way I'm going to
give a 16-year-old vehicle
access."
Watts also said the watch
committee could be granted
significant authority to police
the grounds. He suggested a
three-strike policy based on
observed infractions, not on
hearsay.
For a first observed infrac-
tion, the pilot would receive a
verbal reminder. A second
infraction would lead to aver-
bal reminder and written
warning.,
A third infraction and
"you're out," saidWatts.
An infraction that puts
someone in harm's way could
get the offender kicked off air-
port grounds on the first
strike, he added.
Watts said he does not
favor a system of fines for
infractions because it increas-
es administration workload
and the potential for litiga-
tion.
Advisory Board chair Paul
Hollowell askedWatts to work
up a training program agree-
able to everyone. wownnu

OUR VIEW



Test may show if red light cameras can save lives here


Driver who carelessly runs a red light,
or speeds up to blast through an inter-
section on yellow, is considered a men-
ace. When that motorist hits another vehicle,
people can be injured or killed. Officials say
there are too many stop lights and too few
traffic officers to solve the problem.
Studies indicate that when an intersection
is equipped with a $50,000 camera system,
the accident rate may increase as people
slam on their brakes to avoid tickets and are
rear-ended. Yet studies also show deaths and
injuries caused by what traffic engineers call
"angle crashes" are reduced.
Cities in Europe have long used red-light
cameras to catch violators, especially speed-
ers, since.a powerful Swedish radar system
triggers the pole-mounted cameras.


In the past 10 or 15 years, cameras have
been installed in Atlanta, Albuquerque, Bal-
timore, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver,
Detroit, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Philadel-
phia, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento, San Di-
ego, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.,
and in smaller cities by one of seven manu-
facturers.
While the goal is to reduce collisions and
deaths, catch violators and increase revenue
by mailing out hard-to-beat traffic tickets,
key Florida legislative leaders have opposed
authorizing red-light cameras.
Now Sarasota County has asked Peek
Traffic Corp., a Palmetto, Fla., red-light cam-
era company, to run a three-month test in
both the southern and northern portions of
the county. No traffic tickets will be mailed


out, but violators will be sent photos showing
they (or their vehicle, at least) ran a red light.
One camera is near the light at 17th Street
and Lockwood Ridge Road in the northern
part of the county, while the second camera
is at Jacaranda Boulevard near the last stop-
light before 1-75.
The system takes a picture of a car's li-
cense plate while a photo and video will
show the car running a red light. The video
lasts six seconds, in case the driver claims he
was unable to stop because of a vehicle on
his bumper.
Photos will be transmitted by Internet to
the Peek office in Palmetto, according to Russ.
Colthorpe, who is handling the project for
Peek. There, three people will review each
photo, Colthorpe says.


Donald J. Galloway, responsible for traffic
engineering and operations in Sarasota
County, said the information collected will
be used, along with data from cameras in
Orlando, Melbourne and Manatee County, to
try to convince, Florida lawmakers red light
cameras should become legal here, Col-
thrope says.
Officials agree there are too many collisions
and deaths at Florida intersections. However,
some traffic engineers insist adjusting the
length of yellow and "red on red" at each traffic
signal is a better, cheaper solution.
That, and some potentially difficult issues
about privacy and "Big Brother," will be what
the Legislature has to consider if it decides to
decide whether to make red-light cameras
legal.


Seeing Florida


through new eyes


...






LORRAINE COCCARO
COLUMNIST

Did you find that coming
to Florida from Ohio, New
York or some other northern
4tfjtwa'r5.s -sRm atyvrgot
pectly, but somewhat lke
coming to a foreign country?
For us transplants who are
used to mountains, hills and
waterfalls, Florida is jarringly
different. We have to learn to
develop a discerning eye to
see its beauty.
That is why "Journal of
Light: the Visual Diary of a
Florida Nature Photograph-
er," by John Moran, is worth a
look. He helps us focus on
that natural beauty. He seeks
a Florida without civilization,
a Florida as Ponce de Leon or
Hemando DeSoto saw it.
Moran, a professional na-
ture photographer, believes
that one caln live wide or
deep. He prefers deep and
thus he works only in Florida,
focusing his camera on its
"abundant gifts of nature"
while keeping his "back to
civilization."
Moran's discussion re-
minded me how, as I drive
along State Road 681 toward
1-75 and or on Laurel at the
approach to 1-75, I have tried
to keep the traffic, the high-
way complex and PGT out of
my mind and sight.
With my "back to civiliza-
tion," I focus on the lush plain
stretching out to the south.
Clouds billow up into the
blue, palms dot the green and
brown expanse and I am
transported back in time,
before development devour-
ed the pristine landscape.
There is talk of developing
these areas, and two of my
favo-ite views will go. To our
credit, Sarasota County voters
agreed once again to add to
our environmentally sensitive
Jands by approving the recent
$250 million bond issue and
saving some natural areas for
us to focus on.
Water and the animals that
live in those waters are the



MISSION STATEMENT


subjects of many of Moran's
photographs. It is only natur-
al, considering our numerous
swamps, streams, rivers, lakes
and the nearby sea. He makes
us see that "the story of
Florida is written in water." It
is a sensual, truly beautiful
Florida.
Moran goes to great
lengths to photograph his
subjects, often getting up
before dawn to get the "sweet
light" of the sunrise. He focus-
es with patience and perse-
verance.
Wondering what a lotus
flower looks like to a snail,
Moran describes what hap-
pened next. n-ionoJ PaiL )Cii
"Soon I am on my belly
crawling through a damp for-
est of spongy lotus stalks ... I
roll onto my back, and settle
into the Warm, fecund mud of
Payne's Prairie ...."
He clicks and we have a
snail's-eye view of the under-
side of a single yellow lotus
flower and its green leaves sil-
houetted against a vivid blue
sky dotted with white clouds.
He brings an artist's per-
spective to each of his photos
and a poet's touch to the
titles.
Other photo projects are in
the works, including a rafting
adventure down the Suwan-
nee River and a book on the
Old Florida of the writer
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. I
am looking forward to those.
For photographers, Moran
includes camera, film and
lighting information. But for
most of us, after looking at his
photos and reading his short
essays, we see Florida in a
new light.
Quite some time ago I
wrote about the historical
novel "A Land Remembered,"
by Patrick Smith. It gives us a
feel for the old Florida and an
understanding of the history
that has made the new
Florida. It is a good compan-
ion to Moran's book.
Moran said, "When words
fail, pictures speak." And they
speak loud and clear. We real-
ly see what we previously
might have only glanced at.
His pictures make us new-
comers feel more at home,
more comfortable with na-
ture that was once strange to
us.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Speak up to save endangered wetlands


Editor:
I am writing in regard to the proposed sewer treatment
plant at the comer of River and East River roads.
The people moving, into this area are looking for what we
have a beautiful environment. Let's keep it that way as we
grow.
The wetlands on either side of East River Road on what is
nowWestVillages Property are as important as any wetland in
Florida. We have otters that feed and play in them, any number
of bird species that feed or nest in these wetlands.
The endangered woodstork raises its young on nearby "Bird
Island" in the Myakka River and brings its young to feed in
these nearby ponds. There is a resident eagle. We have seen
several.species of turtles, snakes and toads. Occasionally a
gator crosses the road from one pond to another.
If development in WestVillages occurs without regard to the
surrounding environment, there will be another concrete jun-
gle, with West Villages' contribution to the beauty of the area
being an "in your face" sewer plant. The wetlands will'be filled
in.
Bad things happen when good people are quiet. Citizens
need to rise up against this trend before t is too late. Let your
North Port city commissioners know how you feel about this.

Editor:
As chair of the Florida
Prepaid College Board, I am
often asked about the Florida
Prepaid College Plan and its
importance to the families
and children of our state.
Without a doubt, the Prepaid
College Plan is one of the
greatest benefits the state
offers Florida families and the
leaders of tomorrow our
children.
From the guarantee it
offers on your investment, to
the ability to lock in today's
tuition, local fee and dormi-
tory plan prices without ever
paying an increase in the
future, the Prepaid College
Plan's affordable payment
plans make college financial-
ly accessible for everyone.
In creating a path for high-
er education, families can
make the hopes, dreams and
aspirations of their children a
reality.
When this happens, our


children, our community and
our state's economy win.
We all want a higher edu-
cation for our children, but
.most of us worry about hav-
ing the means to pay for
future college expenses.
Now is the right time to
start saving for a college edu-
cation.
For as little as $24 per
month, you can send your
child to college.
If you haven't enrolled your
children in the Florida Pre-
paid College Plan, I encour-
age you to do so before it is
too late.
The 2005-2006 open
enrollment period ends on
Tuesday, Jan. 31.

Law of the letter
for bad drivers
Editor:
It is time that something
drastic be done about the
nutty drivers on our high-
ways.
Here is, I hope, one answer
to the problem. Stick a 12-
inch letter to the rear of each
convicted nut's vehicle: D for
drunken driver, R for red light
runner, S for stop sign runner
and so on.
The letter would stay there
for for 12 months. When one
of these nuts pulls around
you in traffic, you can see
What you'ar dealing with. The
police will see right away.
Too drastic? I don't think
so.
Many years ago I myself
was knocked down by a
drunk driver. I spent four
months on crutches, paid the
hospital $2,000, lost a good-
paying job, and the drunk dri-
ver, who had no insurance,
lost his license for six months.

People are making
themselves sick
Editor:
According to a report by
U.S. Centers for Medicare and
Medicaid Services, the na-
tional cost of medical care has
escalated to $1.9 trillion in
2004. This represents a 7.9-
percent increase over the pre-
vious year, or nearly three
times the 2.7 percent rate of
inflation.
The cost of medical care
now accounts for a record 16
percent of our gross domestic
product and ruins the prof-
itability and international
competitiveness of our indus-
tries. In personal terms, it
amounts to $6,500 for every
American, or $15,500 per
household. It represents a


major financial burden, lost
productivity, personal misery
and premature death.
The real tragedy is that
most of the diseases associat-
ed with the outrageous cost of
medical care are self-inflict-
ed, through flawed lifestyles.
These include inactivity,
smoking, substance abuse
and meat consumption,
Yes, meat consumption.
According to the U.S. Na-
tional Center for Health Sta-
tistics, nearly 1.4 million
Americans are disabled, then
killed prematurely each year
by heart disease, stroke, can-
cer, diabetes and other
chronic diseases that have
been linked conclusively with
consumption of animal prod-
ucts.
That accounts for 56 per-
cent of all deaths, and pre-
sumably, for a similar per-
centage of medical costs, or
more than a trillion dollars.
Most of us have no control
over the national cost of med-
ical care. But, each of us has a
great deal of control over our
household's $15,500 share
every time we visit our local
supermarket.

Mainstream is shallow
Editor:
We live in one of the most
dangerous periods in the his-
tory of our nation. We face the
most brutal enemy we've ever
faced, an enemy that does not
view human life in- the same
way we do or as viewed by the
rest of the civilized world.
At the same time the main-
stream media and the Demo-
cratic party leadership seem
unaware we are engaged in a
war to preserve our nation.

Venice, city of romance


A romantic Venice? I'm just reading your Wednesday morn-
ing paper in the Opinion column, Our View. I agree that there
are benefits in the envisioning process. If we use that process
to dream of what Venice could look like with all the beautiful
trees, flowers and landscaping with the connectivity to water
and parks, this could be a very romantic place to live.


Scanners needed.You have a
question about should we have
Sarasota County buy voting
machines that produce a paper
trail. We should have voter-ver-
ified paper ballots, and also
mandatory audits to audit
whatever electronic machines
'we have against the voter-veri-
fled ballots. We don't need a lit-
tle printer attached to -a
machine right now where the
software is proprietary and
Secret and the printer that
;prints the ballots would be
from the same software. We
!need independent voter-veri-
fled paper ballots, like the opti-
ical scanners that we've used in
Sarasota County for absentee
ballots for years, and just like
the optical scan systems that 52
other counties in Florida have
been using successfully. Those
need auditing too. Lets have a
permanent record that we can
verify our votes with against
whatever machines we have.
Our DRE touch screen
machines don't give us any-
thing. We need optical scan-
ners.
Bad management. I cannot
figure out why the Venice
code enforcement officer has
not fined the airport for not
'boarding up the windows at
the Ringling arena. The doors
*are hanging down, the win-
!dows are busted out. Any
other business in the city of
SVenice would be fined or cited
:for having the building not
secured. Poor standards. Al-
lowing one party to do it and
not the other sets a very poor
Example. This has been one of
the problems, with this cpr-
rent administration. AlseOthe
money that was spent for
consultants at the airport. My
gosh. Develop it. A lot of
money's been spent there and
nothing's been done. No more
discussion. We're gonna wait
for another generation to
come, then they'll do some-
thing. Finally, the theme of
money that was used in the
community center. Very poor-
ly done another example of
poor management. It needs
to be addressed. And also, I
see the city of Venice and
Sarasota County have been
fighting over various things.
Venice Avenue Bridge is going
to be tor down in 10 more
years. It hasn't been painted
in these many years, since
1965. Why would you want to
put money into painting it
when it'll be torn down? Put
another Band-Aid on it and
get 10 more years use out of it,

but there should be no more
money spent on it. The city is
growing so quick, they have to
have a city hall in the Knights
Trail and Laurel Road area,
the town's going so far in that
direction. I think when people
think of Venice, they think of
the island. The island is not
Venice, which goes all the way
to the Myakka River up in
Laurel. I don't think the aver-
age citizen knows that the city
has expanded that far. The
bigger portion of the city is
now off the island and the
island is a small portion.
Restore voter faith. Thank
you very much for asking our
opinion on the voting. We
would definitely want voter-
verified paper ballots. We real-
ly need to trust our political
action and what we have now
we just can't believe that it will
be an honest vote. There's
nothing to audit now. We real-
ly need voter-verified paper
ballots. I hope this makes a
difference because we've read
so many things about the
hacking of the machines and
maneuvering the systems in
many ways. If we have some-
thing to audit, then we'll have
faith in the vote again.
Paper trail not enough. In
response to your question,
should we buy voter ma-
chines that leave a paper trail,
the answer is a resounding
yes. But, just a plain, old
paper trail is not enough
because Kathy Dent will say
we already have that because
they can print out the results
of what they've done. What
\we need. is a voter-verified
paper trail. w-hich 'can be
matched against the ballot
and then can be audited in
case of any discrepancies. The
supervisor of elections says it
will cost too much money but
it will actually save money in


the long run. Look at the sur-
veys about that.
Bad reputation. Bay Indies
got away with it again. This is
becoming a big problem. Why
didn't they fine them? This is
hurtful to the people in the
park trying to sell their homes
because it gives the park a bad
reputation. It shows that the
management doesn't care.
Something should be done.
Also, when are they going to
finish filling the pothole on
Lucaya in Pinebrook? It's been
three months and we still
have nothing but dirt.
Protect the process. This is
a comment regarding the
question should Sarasota
County buy voting machines
that produce a paper trail. My
answer is an overwhelming
yes. But, the machines that we
vote on that produce a paper
trail need to be voter verified
with optical scanners. There
are 52 of 67 counties in
Florida that have that. We are
not in that majority and it is
way past time-for us to do
everything that we can to pro-
tect the electoral process in
this country and this county.
, Yes to paper. I'm calling as
you requested that we defi-
nitely do need a voter-verified
paper ballot.
Printers not enough. Thanks
for this opportunity. I'm calling
to say we definitely in Sarasota
County want to have balloting
that leaves not 'only a paper
trail, but a verifiable paper trail
to show that our vote was
counted the way we cast it So,
just putting a printer on these
touch screen machines doesn't
do it What we want is some-
thing like an optical scan ballot,
where you can be sure that the
vote you cast is the vote that is
counted and that you have a
copy of it that can be used for
another audit
Votes need audit. We need
voter-verified paper ballots
that can be audited against
the machine totals. With the
touch-screen voting machin-
es that we have now, there's
nothing to audit.


Up a creek without a sewer


MARY KAY RUPPEL



Way back, when I was a
young and naive housewife,
my husband's company
transferred us. After intensive
house hunting, we fell in love
with a lovely home in the sub-
urbs located on 2 1/2 acres of
property. We were thrilled
because we could afford it.
I remember my father cau-
tioned us at the time to think
it over a little more when I
told him it had a septic tank
- no city hook up.
Has anyone ever listened
to their parents?
We bought our dream
house and were thoroughly
pleased until the first back-
up. Let's not go into the sordid
details of standing in a back-
ed-up shower stall.
After becoming close
friends with a variety of
plumbers, none of whom
could stop the back-ups for
longer than a two-month
period, I learned that the cri-
terion for a septic-tank
plumber was the one with the
longest "snake." We got him,


and he did it, and we were
good to go for at least a year.
Fortunately, we were trans-
ferred to another city about
then, and we couldn't move
fast enough.
Surely by now you have
heard about the Phillippi
Creek Septic System Replace-
ment Program. Sarasota
County officials are planning
to take 15,000 homes off sep-
tic tanks in the Sarasota area.
The cost to do this is estimat-
ed to run at about $157 mil-
lion.
Since this exceeds the orig-
inal estimate by about $36
million, county officials are
concerned about incurring
the wrath of these more than
15,000 home and business
owners in the Phillippi Creek
area who will bear the full
brunt of this expenditure,
including water hook-up fees
that could run as much as
$12,000 per resident.
Apparently, some of these
residents are very upset, if not
downright livid, over this
expense. Therefore, county
officials are looking into ways
to ease their financial burden..
One is to share the ex-
pense, so to speak, by giving a
rate hike to the county's
67,000 other sewer cus-
tomers. Another suggestion
put forth is for this approxi-
mately $12,000 expenditure
to be put off until each prop-
erty is sold, and to exact that
charge from the purchaser.
I am not going to waste
your time or mine by beating


around the bush. I don't like
either suggestion, and I will
tell you why.I do not consider
relieving informed adults of
their personal responsibility
by placing a financial burden
on innocent people. It is total-
ly unfair.
I am not a Hard-Hearted
Hannah, so I do sincerely
hope that thePhillippi Creek
residents facing this expendi-
ture can work it out as calmly
and equitably as possible.
There are viable solutions.
For instance there are home
equity loans, or there are 10-
year municipal bonds that are
available for home improve-
ments, with a tax deduction.
The really good news is
that the value of their proper-
ty will be significantly in-
creased in our already boom-
ing real estate market. If they
should decide to sell, the
profit they make can pay off a
loan or whatever, because
they don't have to share their
profits with anyone.
So, why would they expect

That's no ordinary holiday
Editor:
Marty Black's recent article
explaining the city's policies
regarding "holiday" decora-

the correct term for the holi-
day to which he was referring:
Christmas.
Marty, it always was, is now
and always will be Christmas.
Why can't you, with the
intestinal fortitude you ordi-

this politically correct change


to the name of the holiday
:and call it what it is?.

Vets make house calls in custom RV


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS! COLUMNIST


Recently a new innovation
arrived in South County
designed specifically to pro-
vide services at home for sick
pets.
"Realizing pets are often
freaked out and nervous
when brought to a store or
clinic makes it more difficult
to find the symptoms, so we
decided to set up our 'house
call' service. It's also an
opportunity to develop good
relations with our clients and
enjoy our work," said Dr. Jan
Hale.
With partner Dr. Marcelo
Arrango, he has set up a com-
plete mobile veterinary hos-
pital, bringing services to cus-
tomers' homes. Appropri-
ately, it's called Vets in the


City.
They designed a 26-foot
coach RV-style vehicle that
was custom built by LaBoit of
Ohio. It is fitted out with a
complete surgery suite with
modem anesthesia, laborato-
ry and dental facilities.
The two veterinarians each
have more than 30 years'
experience. Arango practiced
in Colombia until arriving in
Florida five years ago. Hale
operated his own practice in
Arkansas before coming to St.
Petersburg eight years ago.
,They met while operating
a corporate veterinary hospi-
tal in pet stores and both were
teaching vet technology at a
college in St. Petersburg. Last
October they decided to set
up the new business, naming
it Vets in the City and basing it
in Sarasota County.


According to Hale, experi-
ence has proved elderly per-
sons and busy working folks
really appreciate the vet
bringing his, services to their
home. Undertaking the sur-
gery nearby allows the com-
plete pet treatment and re-
covery to take place at home
without travel, making it a
much less stressful experi-
ence for both pet and owner.
The service particularly
appeals to owners who have
multiple or large pets.
Vets in the City primarily
works. with small pets: dogs,
cats and rabbits, but not rep-
tiles and birds.
The service is available
weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m., but they are on call 24
hours, with a housecall fee of
from $49 to $70. Call 544-
2090.

New chair's tasks
Kathy Lehner is chair of
the board of the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce this
year, and her challenge is ti
implement 12 strategic goals
to promote business growth
and success, including
strengthening the visitor
information center and prd-
moting it as a referral source.
"Entering Venice over the
Venice Avenue Bridge is a sign
with visitor and information
center, but it goes nowhere,"
said Lehner.
She is looking into getting
tax dollars for the tourism
bureau, and more street sig-
nage.
Lehner comes from the
Bronx, N.Y., where she met
and married her husband,
John, before moving to Balt-
imore to run an Ace Hard-
ware store with $20 million
annual sales.
Eighteen months later,
Lehner and her husband
headed to Venice, where she
became manager of a Pinch-
A-Penny store in Sarasota.
Deciding to invest in a
business, she chose Modem
Maids, growing it for 12 years
before selling it to two em-
ployees.
She became a Coldwell
Banker sales associate before
moving to Waterford Com-
panies, accepting manage-
ment of its Resales Division.

Red-hot Indians school Bulldogs


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


It was textbook basketball,
proofread without an error.
Fueled by a red-hot second
quarter, the Venice High boys
schooled visiting DeSoto
Thursday night, 52-30, in a
non-district game.
Forward Kalen Lyons
scored 12 of his game-high 17
points in the first half as
Venice ran out to a 25-point
advantage by halftime. From
there, the Indians coasted
home.
"They beat us when we
got off the bus," said DeSoto
coach Kip Rhoten. "They
play the half court game so
well. They're so disciplined,
so patient. They pass so well.
Their coach is one of the
best."
"To get a good-sized lead
on a team like DeSoto, you
have to do two things," said
Venice coach Steve Cavallaro.
"You have to shoot well and
you have to play good D. We
did both of them."
Venice ran out to an 8-0
lead in the game's opening
moments, but DeSoto used
pressure to draw to within


8-7. The Bulldogs could
never get over the hump, as
the Indians closed with four
to lead 12-7 after one.
The second quarter was
about as good as it can get
for Venice. The Indians went
on an 18-1 run to open the
session. Venice ended up
outscoring DeSoto 23-3 in the
session to lead 35-10 at the
half.
Venice shot 8-for-11 from
the field in the second quar-
ter. Lyons was 5-of-6 in the
first half including a pair of
threes.
Lyons also did a superb
job on defense, holding
Bulldog star down well be-
low his average. Shine end-
ed up with 14 points, but
most of those came when
Lyons was on the bench.
Venice, once 1-6, has now
won nine of its last 13 and
could be a sleeper in the
upcoming Class 5A District'12
Tournament.
DeSoto is also thinking
district.
"We have four straight
district games coming up
and they're all against teams
that play zone," Rhoten said.
"Venice plays tough man. We


play Hardee (Friday). It was
good for us to play a team so
disciplined."

Instead, the match incredibly
slipped away in the waning mo-

Manatee won, 3-2, leaving the
Lady Indians with the sudden empti-
ness of season over.
"We played our hearts out and exe-
cuted our game plan beauti-
fully," Venice coach Joe
Ferretti said. "However, my
game plan did not prepare
"" the girls for this situation in

Venice finishes with a fine
record of 15-6-1, while Man-

the district crown.
Ranch disposed of Char-

evening on the Manatee

of the pitch.
"The saddest part is an unworthy
and abrupt end for a very special
group of young ladies and not getting
together today for practice," Ferretti
finished. "We had a magnificent sea-
son with unprecedented leadership
from the seniors and an incredible
sense of maturity from their team-
mates. They changed the dynamics
and the future perception of
Lady Indian soccer."

SOn Feb. 23, The Plantation
foundation will hold its
annual Celebrity Golf Classic.
Founded in 1984, The Plan-
tation Foundation has dis-
tributed more than $1.5 mil-
lion to more than 40 organi-
Vations throughout south
iSarasota County. Many for-
mer athletes will be on hand.
Today marks the first in a

They called him "Sudden
Sam" and he stood 6-feet, 5-
inches tall gargantuan by
the standards of the 1960s.
He was 18 years old when
-he made his major league
i debut for the Cleveland
Indians on Sept. 15, 1961. It
Pwas a Friday night in the
[cavernous Cleveland Stadi-
lrum and only 4,503 people
were on hand to witness this
phenom hold the Twins to

|lowing a run in 6-1/3 inn-
Sings before leaving the game
having cracked two ribs
[,because he f jw soharrd. He
[--, fs ? C ^" "- -


walked five and struck out
five in his debut and a legend
was born.
Possessed of an outstand-
ipg fastball, a good curve and
a great change-up, it was not
long before the lanky south-
paw was being compared to
Sandy Koufax. With just
enough wildness, to keep bat-
ters from getting too com-
fortable in the box, McDowell
became one of the most
feared pitchers in the game
for a decade.
From 1965 through 1970,
he led the American League
in strikeouts every year
except for 1967. Twice in that
time, he topped 300 strike-
outs in a season, reaching a
career high 325 in 1965. Six
times he led the league in
strikeouts per nine innings,
topping out with 10.71 per
nine in 1965, at the time a
major league record.
Poison to left-handed hit-
ters, "Sudden Sam" dominat-
ed some of the games great-
est. He struck out Reggie
Jackson, 18 times in 38 at
bats. Roger Maris was 1-for-
18 against him with 5 Ks.
Boog Powell mustered only
nine hits off of him in 50 at
bats and fanned 16 times
while Carl Yastrzemski hit a
career .190 off of him and
struck out 16 times in 63 at
bats.
McDowell's dominance
was not, however, limited
to just left-handed hitters.
Some of the better right-
handed hitters struggled
with him as well. Brooks
Robinson could only muster
a .202 average when facing
McDowell. George "The
Boomer" Scott hit but .203
and struck out 26 times in.
64 at bats. The great Mickey
Mantle hit a minuscule .192
with 20 Ks in 52 at bats
when facing McDowell from
the right side.
Playing on some medi-
ocre Indian teams, Sam's
won-loss record did not
reflect.,.his,domipance capa-


abilities. With a career mark
of 141-134, McDowell won
20 games only one time.
That came in 1970 when the
Sporting News named him
its Pitcher of the Year. He
went 20-12 with an ERA of
2.92. He struck out 304 bat-
ters in 303 innings. It marked
his second season topping
300 Ks. He was. only the fifth
pitcher of the modem era to
strikeout 300 batters in a sea-
son joining, Rube Waddell,
Walter Johnson, Bob Feller
and Sandy Koufax.
On April 25, 1966 he threw
a one-hitter in a 2-0 win
against the Kansas City Ath-
letics at Cleveland Stadium.
He followed that up with
another one-hitter less than
a week later when he turned
the trick against the White
Sox, winning 1-0. He threw
four one-hitters in his career
and added nine two-hitters
- all complete-game victo-
ries. He is, one of only six
pitchers in the history of the
game to, hurl back-to-back
one hitters.
Fighting the demons in the
bottle, McDowell slipped to
13-17 in 1971 and was traded
by the Indians to the San
Francisco Giants for Gaylord
Perry. Once referring to him-
self as "the biggest, most
hopeless, most violent drunk
in baseball," the demons
could no longer be kept off
the field and he bounced
from the Giants tow the
Yankees and then the Pirates
before washing out of base-
ball in 1975 at the age of 32.
When he retired, Mc-
Dowell had struck out 10 or
more batters a total of 74
times, surpassed at that time
by only Sandy Koufax Today
he remains eighth on that
all-time list.
Since his retirement from
baseball, McDowell has
fought off his demons and
worked with the Texas
Rangers, among others, as a
substance abuse counselor
.co,players and former players.

Protecting the bays from pollution



Sarasota County plans a public workshop this Saturday for its Dona and Roberts bays watershed project.


STAFF REPORT


Sarasota I 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 9:30 a.m.-
noon at the Laurel Nokomis
School cafeteria, 1900 East
Laurel Road, Nokomis.
Dona and Roberts bays
are small estuaries that con-
tain watersheds of about 90
square miles from just
north of the Manatee
County line southward to
and just south of the Venice
inlet, west of the Myakka
River and east of U.S. 41.
Decades of drainage pro-
jects for mosquito control
and agriculture have signif-
icantly enlarged the area
draining to the bays. This
has increased the amount
of fresh water and sedi-
ment, which has damaged
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.
The format will include a
presentation by area scien'
tists and county staff, fol-
lowed by group discussions
to learn residents' views.on
bay issues.
Speakers will include
representatives of Mote
Marine Research Labor-
atory, Sarasota County En-
vironmental Services,
Southwest Florida Water
Management District and
the Charlotte Harbor. Na-
tional Estuary Program.
For more information,
contact the Sarasota Coun-
ty Call Center at 861-5000
and ask for Water Re-
sources.

Detroit's North American International Auto Show


New models and old muscle car favorites combine to fan gearhead glee


By RUSS MOORE
SPECIAL TO THE SUN
S For the second year in a row,
the Sun is happy to bring you
some sights and share the buzz
from the North American Inter-
national Auto Show, or, as most
of us know it, the Detroit Auto
Show. This year, perhaps more
than ever, emotion was as evi-
dent as the new products here
in the motor city.
In an passionate statement,
Michigan's Governor Jennifer
Granholm made it clear that if,
cars made in other countries
were to be sold here, they should
'be made in the world's automo-
tive capital, Detroit. And it is not,
just talk. Michigan, at the gover-
nor's urging, landed a $150 mil-
lion Toyota design center, and
now she is stalking a bigger prize
an engine plant that Toyota
may build in the Midwest. "We
want to make sure they know
how welcome they would be
here," she said in an interview
last week in Michigan.
A surprise late entiy into the
show, however, may give pause
to both Japanese and American
auto workers and manufactur-
Sers as they got an up-close and
personal look at the Geely 7151
CK. The Geely five-passenger
sedan was the first car ever
shown at the Detroit show that
was built in China. Geely com-
pany executives watched as
thousands of folks literally
'crawled all over the car parked
in the entryway to the auto
show. "This is the third genera-
tion of the 7151 CK," said Shufu
Li, chairman of the Geely Auto-
S motive Company.
S "The automobile that wve
will bring to the United States
S \\ill be the fifth generation of
the 7151 CK," Shufu added.
"There will have been man\
improvements over the design
and engineering that you see
here." Most observers agreed
that there would need to be
significant improvements to
the car's quality for it to .uc-
S cessfully compete in the cut-


throat U.S. market.
The Geely brand name was
derived from a Chinese phrase
meaning "I am lucky." But as we
watched engineers and mar-
keters from automotive compa-
nies around the word taking a
close look at the Geely and pon-
dering this new under-$10,000
entry into the market, it was
clear they were not feeling
lucky.
When asked about the Geely
entering the market in 2008,
Shufu said, "I know very well
the mistakes others have made.
I have no intentions of repeat-
ing those mistakes."
Concept cars always create a
buzz at the auto shows. Nissan,
however, had sworn me to
secrecy back in November dur-
ing the SEMA show when they
led me to a dark, well-guarded
corner of the Las Vegas Hilton
basement to ask my opinion of
a new sports car they were con-
sidering. I liked it a lot, and it
was no surprise to see the Nis-
san URGE concept sports car in
Detroit.
The URGE sports a small-dis-
placement, high-revving 4
cylinder engine, color-infused
aluminum body panels and
brushed aluminum-alloy
wheels. The rear-wheel drive
Nissan URGE is aimed at the
under-25-year-old car buyer.
The mtorocycle-inspired
styling, quick acceleration, six-
speed manual gearbox and
cockpit-integrated Xbox 360
gaming system raised the eye-
brows of both young and sea-
soned drivers at the show.
When the Nissan URGE is in
park, the driver can use the car's
oin pedals and steering wheel
to burn digital rubber playing
Project Gohdam Racing 3. The
Nissan URGE delivers a unique
driving experience not avail-
able in any living room.
Automotive manufacturers
and car buyers have been react-
ing to the high fuel prices in
recent months. The Ford Reflex
is a highly stylish response to
. .. ,,* -, -.'.^.L ,: i..


the fuel and space problems
* encountered by today's drivers.
The Reflex comes equipped
with Ford's latest diesel-electric
hybrid engine. The Reflex as
equipped at the showwill deliv-
er up to 65 miles per gallon.
Reflex's 20-inch wheels are pol-
ished alloy. The large-diameter,
narrow-width Michelin tire
design offers low rolling resis-
tance for improved fuel econo-
my. The car is packed with
state-of-the-art goodies includ-
ing solar panels, flexible interior
panels made from synthetic
and regenerated materials, and
inflatable safety belts for the
rear passengers.
"From consumer electronics
to urban dwellings, small is
becoming big in America," said
Peter Horbury, Ford's executive
director, North American
Design. "The bold and innova-
tive design of Reflex stretches
the traditional boundaries of a
subcompact car. Reflex delivers
the fuel economy and flexibility
that Americans have come to
expect."
Reflex is set off with Ford's
three-bar grille, made of high-
strength anodized extruded
aluminum and hand-polished
to a matte finish. The concept's
shoulder line flows upward to
the B-pillar and back down into
the wheel arch. Reverse butter-
fly doors aid vehicle ingress and
egress.
"Ford Reflex is a small car that
doesn't feel small," said Free-
man Thomas, director, North
American Strategic Design. "It is
a gorgeous sporty car that deliv-
ers guilt-free performance with
a hybrid engine. And thanks to
its innovative approach to the
interior, it has space for growing
families."
A retro-styled ChevTolet
Camaro two-door coupe with a
big V-8, reminiscent of the mus-
cle-car days of 1960s, rumbled
its way onto the stage at
Detroit's Como Hall. The
design, while inspired by the
early Camaros, is not as similar

,The Ford Shelby Cobra GT500 is the most powerful factory Mustang ever, with 450 supercharged horsepow-
er on tap.


This is what the GT500 will show to just about any chal-
lenger taillights.


The boldy styled Ford Edge CUV will go on sale later this year.


" ....I AA--




The futuristic-looking Ford Reflex is a rolling showcase for the manufac-
turer's new diesel-electric hybrid engine.


GM's Bob Lutz says this Buick Enclave concept is "99 percent" identical
to the production version, which will be a 2007 model.


For ease of ingress and egress, the Imperial has suicide
back.


The Reflex also is packed with high-tech innovations, including inflatable
safety belts.


The Mazda Kabura concept likely is a strong indication of the next-gen-
eration RX-8. The car features an unusual 3+1 seating configuration.


Lexus showed off their new ultra-luxurious flagship, the LS 460L. That
last "'" indicates this is the long-wheelbase.version of the car.


The Geely 7151 CK is set to become the first Chinese-made automo-
bile sold in the U.S. -market. Expect to see the Geely badge on the
streets for the 2008 model year.


The Ford GT isn't new, but it's still pretty hot.


Chrysler showed off the Durango-based Aspen SUV, which' looks to be production-ready.

transmission. The car is long -186.2 inches
- and rides on 21-inch wheels' on the front
and 22S under the rear, with monstrous
275/30 front and 305/30 rear tires.
The Camaro at the show boasted an all-
independent suspension, something origi-
nal Camaro owners could only dream
about. GM vice-chairman and product czar
Bob Lutz apparently loves it and joked on
the show stage, 'All I have to do is persuade
this man" referring to GM CEO RickWag-
oner "to pay for it."
The 2006 Detroit Auto Show would not
have been complete without seeing the
long-awaited Dodge Challenger. Daimler-
Chrnsler officially announced the new
2007/2008 concept car powered by a 425-
horsepower, 6.1-liter Hemi: The car is said to
have a top speed of 174 miles per hour and a
neck-snapping 0-to-60-mph time of 4.5 sec-
onds. And yes, Hemi fans, it turns in 13s in
the quarter mile.
"Challenger draws upon the initial 1970
model as the icon of the series," said Tom
Tremont, Vice President of AdvancedVehicle
Design at Dodge. "The 1970 model is the
most sought after by collectors. But instead
of merely recreating that car, the designers
endeavored to build a Challenger most peo-
ple see in their nlind's eye a vehicle with-
out the imperfections like the old car's
tucked-under \heels, long front overhang
and imperfect fits," he said. 'As.with all plea-
surable memories, you remember, the good
and screen out the bad."
The new Ford Shelby Cobra GT500 was on
hand to round out the muscle-car reunion
at the show. The shelby Cobra is the most
powerful Mustang to ever roll off the Ford
factory assembly line. The Shelby Cobra, on
sale this year, has 450 horsepower and 450
pound-feet of torque pumped out by a
supercharged cast-oirn four-valve 5.4-liter
V8 engioie. The 5.4-liter engine was first seen
in the limited-edition 2000 SVT Mustang
Cobra R, which jumped from 0 to 60 mph in
4.7 seconds and from 0-to 100 in 11 seconds.
Those times were turned without a super-
charger.
"The Ford Shelby Cobra GT500 is going to
be the most, capable, most powerful Mus-
tang that Ford or SVT or Carroll Shelby has
ever introduced," said Hau Thai-Tang,
Director of Advanced Product Creation and
SVT. "The car really builds on the race-
proven Mustang platform. Many people
may not know that we are racing the Mus-
tang today in the Grand Am Cup series and
it's doing very well. It won its first time out,
beating the best that Europe and Japan had
to offer. And now we're taking that platform
and building on it."
The rotation of the GT500's 19-inch
wheels is halted with the aid of 14-inch
cross-drilled Brembo rotors up front and 13-
inch discs in the rear. Shelby engineers also
retuned and upgraded the shocks and

spring rates and upgraded the stabilizer bars
to increase the Mustang's handling ability.
Drivers will not mistake the Shelby Cobra
GT500 for a standard Mustang. The Shelby
version has Le Mans-style white stripes
that run from nose to tail and the GT500
name prominent in a lower bodyside rac-
ing stripe.
We caught up with Carroll Shelby, the
legendary race car driver who first put his
name on a Mustang in 1964 after Ford
asked hini to inject some high perfor-
mance into.the new Mustang, doing some
preproduction work on the new Mustang
car in Dearborn. Carroll spent time driving
and testing a GT500 prototype.
"I knew the car looked good. I knew it
should be an excellent car," said Shelby.
"But when I got into it and drove it, I said
the same thing that everyone is going to say
when they drive it, and that's 'Wow.' The car
feels like it has a lot more horsepower than
it has. But not only that, it gets the power
down. to the ground. It's everything I've
dreamed of. I can't tell you how proud I am
to be a part of SVT and this car."
Carroll Shelby has done it again. We
found his Shelby Cobra GT500 to be our
show favorite for 2006.
We want to know what you think of the
cars introduced at the 23rd North Amer-
ican International Auto Show in Detroit.
We would like to share your thoughts

CORRESPONDENT

Knock! Knock!
Who's there?
Orange.
Orange who?
Orange you glad you
found out you still have time
to get your Honeybells?

OK, knock-knock jokes
were corny back in the 50s,
and the orange joke was one
of the corniest. A recent stop
at Nokomis Groves took me
back to the 50s and my first
visit to Florida.
My husband and I were on
our honeymoon from Ohio,
where there is snow in winter
and no oranges on trees:
I was fascinated with see-
ing oranges, lemons and
grapefruits growing on trees.
One of my favorite pictures is
of my husband standing in an
orange grove with his head in
a tree, mouth open, sur-
rounded by oranges.


Twelve years later we
returned to Florida with three
kids and watched them be
awed by the same things we
were on our honeymoon -
maybe not all the same
things. This year we hope to
be showing our eight grand-
children and surprise fourth
child, Florida. One of our
stops will be a refreshing one
at Nokomis Groves.
Nokomis Groves has been
in business since 1949, and is
in its third generation of
Hayes family ownership. The
business was started by Terry
Hayes, grandfather of Brenda
Kemerer, the .store's current
general manager. Back in the
30s and 40s, Hayes managed
the Stone Grove in Venice.
Some of his employees today
are his daughter, Nadine
Leach and .his five grand-
daughters. A photo of Leach
as a youngster shows her on
the front porch of the historic
Lord house, where she lived
as a child. That house was


recently moved to Granada
Avenue, where it will be
restored as a historic
home/mugeum/visitor cen-
ter for Venice.
Kemerer gave me a tour of
the facility, pointing out a bill-
board over the packing plant
where customers can watch
fruit as it is sorted and pack-
aged. The billboard featured a
pictorial history of the
orchard. Kemerer also point-,
ed out a case, which held lots
of artifacts found in the
orchard, including rattle-
snake rattles and a skeleton of
a boar's head.
One of the reasons Noko-
mis Groves does not allow
you to pick your own oranges
is that these creatures some-'
times appear in the orchards.
Nearly as unique as these
artifacts is the variety of cit-
rus-related products sold at
Nokomis Groves. First and
foremost are the naval
oranges, Valencia oranges,
Temple oranges, honey tan-

gerines, Honeybells (nick-
name of Minneola tangelos),
Orlando tangelos, grapefruit
and juice. The store offers free
samples of the fruit and
charges just five cents for a
sample of juice. Other citrus
products include orange
blossom honey, jams, jellies,


marmalades and candy.
Florida nuts, postcards, cloth-
ing and Florida souvenirs fill
most of the rest of the store,
while still leaving space for ice
cream.
Nokomis Orchards is as
famous for its homemade ice
cream as its fruit. The ice
cream store was added 15
years ago.
The most popular flavor is
the orange and vanilla swirl
(similar in flavor to Dream-
scicles), followed by orange
and key lime-chocolate swirl.
Recently added is low-fat
pineapple ice cream.
Nokomis Orchards is a 10-
minute ride from downtown
Venice.
The store is open Monday
through Saturday, 8 a.m.-5:30
p.m., November to April. The
ice cream store is open 11
a.m.-6 p.m., Sunday through
Thursday and until 7 p.m.
Friday and Saturday.
During the winter holi-
days, the store offers wreaths


fashioned from citrus fruit
and leaves.
Juice oranges and grape-
fruit are available November-
April, but if you want
Honeybells or naval oranges,
get them this month. At the
end of January, they will be
gone.
The cost of shipping a
package of fruit is $7.50,
regardless of the size of the
carton.
For more information
about the groves, call the
store at 488-5274 or, from
out-of-state toll-free at (800)
426-5274. The store's Web site
is nokomisgroves.com.

As they said in the 50s, be
there or be square.
As for Honeybells, if you
snooze, you lose.

'It' happensc... and

in different colors, too


Free health fairs at YMCA


SUZY COHEN, R.PH.
(COLIMNi

Q: Why does eating licorice
strips cause some people to have
green bowel movements? The
first time this happens, it's scary!
Many people would like to know
if this is normal. R.O., Venice,
Fla.
A- I was told a long time
ago that a columnist defines
herself by the questions she
publishes, and defecation is.
not one of my preferred sub-
jects. With that said, I would
like to put the world's eighth
wonder to rest so that readers
don't rush to the emergency
room at the first sign of green
poop, thinking they are
deathly ill. Don't misunder-
staqd: Green poop could be a
sign of serious problems, but
for most people it's just the
result of food coloring.
Doctors can evaluate stool
discoloration and review
symptoms and lab tests to
rule out dangerous bleeding
ulcers, pancreatic problems,
jaundice or anal fissures. But
the purpose of this column is
to unload information on
harmless, ordinary discol-
orations that are fleeting.
Researchers have actually
studied poop color, although
many of them are 13-year- *
olds without abetter hobby.
The evidence may get flushed
but the science is solid, arid
poop researchers have deter-
mined that dyes contained in
our foods alter the color of
our waste.


In the past it was thought that heredity determined whether our teeth
were strong or weak. Today's thinking is that the makeup of each
Person's saliva determines our susceptibility to tooth decay. Calcium
and phosphate continually move out of the teeth and into saliva,
Leaving weak areas in the teeth. Fluoride in the mouth encourages
calcium and phosphate in saliva to go BACK INTO the teeth.
At this time, only Mother Nature knows how saliva coats the teeth by
forming a membrane on its surface enamel. One theory states that this ^
coating, controls the transfer of calcium and phosphate between the
saliva and the tooth.
Just as blood brings nutrients to the cells of the body to keep them S
healthy, saliva brings minerals to the teeth to keep them strong. You -
might say that saliva is the "bloodstream of the teeth." So, for healthy ^
teeth, brush with a fluoride toothpaste use systemic fluroide and visit i
your dentist on a regular basis.

STAFF REPORT


The South County Family
YMCA is offering two open
hbuse opportunities for free
health fair screenings, ranging
from blood pressure and
diabetes testing to nutrition
consultation.
The health fairs are de-
signed. to inspire healthier
lifestyles and the YMCA
staff is dedicated to helping
individuals make positive
changes to improve health
and quality of life, with ad-
ditional focus on the ben-
efits of massage therapy,


For example, kids who eat
purple Popsicles, blue frost-
ing or black jellybeans will
end up with blue tongues
and green poop. Black
licorice can do this too, as
you have already noticed
when you sneaked a peek
before the flush. Kids get a
chuckle out of this, some-
'times striving for every color
of the rainbow. Personally, I
never recommend ingesting
too much food with all these
crazy dyes. For people who
are allergic or suffer with
leaky gut or celiac disease,
food additives can be a
problem.
But ... there's no denying
that many foods generate
swirl art, including blue or
purple corn chips, Gatorade,
fruit drinks, Hi-C and Kool-
aid. Blueberries can turn it
blue or black. To achieve red
or pink, that Chinese neon-

About Sarasota Opera
Sarasota Opera is now in
its 47th season. In 1958 the
company began presenting
chamber-sized repertoire in
the historic 320-seat Asolo
Theater on the grounds of
Sarasota's Ringling Museum
of Art. Recognizing the need
for a theater more conducive
to opera, the company pur-
chased the former A.B. Ed-
wards Theater in downtown
Sarasota in 1979. Renovations
began in 1982 and the 1,033-
seat theater, now on the
National Register of Historic
Places, opened in 1984 as the
Sarasota Opera House. Since
1983 the company has been
under the artistic leadership
of Victor DeRenzi. Since then
the company has "garnered
international attention with
its Masterworks Revival Ser-
ies, which presents neglected
works of artistic merit, as well
as the Verdi Cycle, begun in
1989 and culminating in
2013, producing the complete
works of Giuseppe Verdi.

One God, one mind, one message


DONNA MARTONFI



Something very interesting
occurred about 20 minutes
after I submitted last Sep-
tember's article for my Mon-
day morning deadline. Act-
ually, it's quite miraculous! I
went to check my e-mail and
came across one from a close
friend that was marked, "A
MUST READ!" Naturally, I
opened it first. It contained a
very lengthy article, written by
a well-known author who has
published more than 20
books. Amazingly, his mes-
sage was almost identical to
the article that I had just writ-
ten and sent off to the
Gondolier. The similarities
were so numerous that they
were almost word for word,
even down to such unique
words and adjectives like
"unimaginable."
Whenever something like
this happens it is such a
tremendous confirmation to
me because it shows me that I
am truly hearing from God. It
confirms that I am clearly
hearing what he is saying to
me because he is telling so
many of his other messengers
the same thing at. the same
time. As 2 Peter 1:21 declares:
"It is the Holy Spirit within us
that enables us to speak the
messages of God." A similar
reference is made in Ephes-
ians 3:5, which says God
clearly reveals his divine
truths to us through the
power of the Holy Spirit.
My first such experience.


happened about 10 years ago.
After I composed a sermon
that I was preparing for a
church in South Carolina, I
dictated it onto a cassette
tape. I finished the message
just as two friends arrived to
take me to a meeting- in
Sarasota, where John Bevere,
another well-known author
and ,minister, was speaking.
At the time, though, I -had
never even heard of John
Bevere. Since the drive to
Sarasota was going to take
about 40 minutes, the exact
length of my message, my
friends agreed to listen to it
on the way there.
After the service, while
perusing the book table, I felt
the Lord-strongly impressing
me to get a book called, "The
Devil's Door." Well, that posed
a problem because I was in
no financial position to spend
$10 on a book. Secondly, I had
brought absolutely no money
with me, so why was the Lord
insisting that I needed to read
that book? Finally, in despera-
tion, I said, "Lord, if you want
me to read that book, then
you'll just have to have it pop
up at the next garage sale that
I visit because I have no
intention of borrowing the
money from my friends.
There are much more press-
ing issues to spend $10 on!"
Turning away from the
book table, I saw my friends,
now standing with John
Bevere, motioning for me to
join them. As I approached,
they were telling him I was
about to leave to minister in
South Carolina. To my
amazement, he spun around
and adamantly stated, "Go
and get my book, 'The Devil's
Door.' Read it and go preach
it. If you cannot afford to buy
it, just take it. Please, go
spread the message." '
I must have looked like a
deer in headlights as the real-
ization hit me that this was a
divinely orchestrated en-


counter. I grabbed the book
and could hardly wait to get
home and find out what God
so adamantly wanted me to
read and know. You cannot
imagine the sheer panic that
gripped me when I discov-
ered that John Bevere's book
was not only on the same Old
Testament chapter and verse
that my message was on, but
he: even used the same New
Testament scriptures to back
up his message. Additionally,
he had a very similar personal
experience happen to him as
did to me, except his occurred
at a baseball game while mine
was an incident that hap-
pened on the front steps of a
friend's house, but the gist of
our situations was absolutely
identical.
My immediate reaction
was people would think that I
had first read his book and
then plagiarized most of it.
My mind raced because I did-
n't know what to do. I almost
picked up the phone to call
my friends who could prove
that I did not, since they had
listened my tape and knew
that I had never even heard of
this man until that night.
Suddenly, God's peace
descended like manna from
heaven and I received a sim-
ple yet astonishing revelation.
It is a revelation that contin-

I prepare a new message,
allowing me to be totally con-
fident the things I write and
preach are not just my own
words and ideas but they
come from the very heart of
God, revealed to me by the
Spirit of God. It is straight
from I Corinthians 2: 12-16:
"Now we have received, not
the spirit of the world, but the
spirit who is from God, that
we might know the things.

PHOTO COURTESY OF THE SARASOTA JEWISH CHORALE
The Sarasota Jewish Chorale is seeking new members.


Jewish Chorale welcomes new voices


STAFF REPORT

The Sarasota Jewish Chor-
ale is a group of gifted singers
with a unique repertoire of
Jewish music sung in Hebrew,
Yiddish, Ladino and English.
The music originates from
Israeli, Chassidic, Middle
Eastern and Diaspora cul-
tures. The chorale is sharing
its musical heritage and
Jewish identity with the
greater Sarasota community,
and invites all who love to
sing and have some experi-


ence to join them in song. The
group meets at 7 p.m.
Thursday. Call 955-1021.
The chorale was founded
in 1999 by a small group of
people who had been mem-
bers of choruses in their pre-
vious hometowns. As the
founding members of the
chorale, they were deter-
mined to create a choral
group dedicated to perpetu-
ating Jewish culture through
entertainment, musical edu-
cation and community ser-
vice.


The chorale has performed
at Sarasota Arts Day, the JCC
Kallah, the Kobernick House,
Music Live at Venice Public
Library, the Jewish Com-
munity Center of Venice, the
Fountains Retirement Center,
Epiphany Cathedral in Venice
for Holocaust Remembrance
Day and at other nonprofit
events.
The group consists of more
than 20 men and women
singing four-part harmony.

Stylist trades snipping for snapping


Englewood fine art photographer William Thayer sits among some of the black and white images he captured during, recent .
visit to Ireland. A former hair stylist, Thayer said he found his calling years ago when he was asked to photograph hair models. -


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER

It's.funny where the path of
life can take you.
Fine art photographer Wil-
liam Thayer and his wife,- Judy
Thayer, can certainly vouch
for that.
William Thayer started out
life with a scholarship from
.G iiheal'Motior expectfig to"
design automobile bodies.
From there he became a hair
stylist, something he never
wanted to be caught doing.
By way of a chain of salons,
Salon International, he own-
ed in Detroit, Thayer became
an award-winning fine art
photographer,, another job he
never dreamed he would be
doing.
Although he makes a living
with his photography, it's real-
ly not a job to Thayer.,
"I'm not sure if I shoot to
travel, or if I travel to shoot,"
Thayer said.
Thayer and Judy travel the
world over and Thayer' takes
pictures of the unique land-
scapes the two discover
together.
The Thayers have traveled


to Rome, Venice, Paris, Prague
and England so far.
In November they went to
Ireland for the first time, and
they're going back to Ireland
this year because their trip
was cut short when Judy fell
on some ice and broke both
of her wrists, which is how the
Sun met the Thayers.
While standing in line at airi
Englewood Publix, *a Stun'
reporter asked Judy what had
happened to her.
It seems the Thayers are
guided by unseen forces.
But how Thayer began tak-
ing his black-and-white pho-
tos is also an intriguing part of
his unusual path.
Not so bad
When Thayer got his schol-
arship to GMI, he took an
aptitude test with the results
saying he would be good as
an artist, hair dresser or pho-.
tographer.
There was no way he want-
ed to be a hair dresser and he
didn't think he could do well
as a photographer, so he
expected to finish technical
school as an auto body
designer.

in to the prodding.
Thayer said that when he

started thinking it wouldn't be
bad going to school with all
those girls walking around.
"It's got to be a pretty good
way to make a living, running
your hands through hair all

dering at the time.

the Italian leader Benito Mus-

-Neil Simon's "The Good
Doctor" will be at The Players
Theatre, 838 North Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota, Feb. 3 and 4.
The Broadway comedy is a
joint venture between The
Players and the Longboat Key
Chamber of Commerce. The
show will be presented Feb. 3
at 8 p.m. and for two perfor-
mances Feb. 4, at 2 and 8 p.m.
Simon's inspiration for this
show came from the short
stories of Russian playwright
Anton Chekov, who began his
career as a medical doctor,
but later abandoned the field
to pursue writing. In Simon's
adaptation, 10 humorous
vignettes bring a tapestry of
caricatures out of pre-Rev-
olutionary Russia. Directed
by Arthur J. Borkowski, the
play provides the actors a
challenge of portraying differ-
eAt characters ,in a .riuii-
repertoire.
The cast is primarily em-


ployees and associates of the
chamber and includes Wayne
McCammon, Dora Walters,
Cal Bonnett, Tammy Halsted,
Joe Peters and Gino Norman.
Seats are reserved at $18
for adults and $11 for stu-
dents. Evening performances
plus a cocktail reception are
$25. For tickets, call the box
office at 365-2494.

Take a tour of the train sta-
tion, guided by one of the
many Depot Docent mem-
bers of the Venice Area
Historical Society. The trained
docents provide information
on the depot and the city of
Venice. Tours run every half
hour, 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Mon-
day, Wednesday and Friday
during the tourist season.
Donations to the historical
society are always welcome.
For more information, call
496-9474.

While you are touring sites

For more information, call

'Glory Road


BY CHRISTY LEMIRE
GUEST WRITER


It's a true story filled with
innate drama, tension, heart
and historic importance:
During the college basketball
finals in 1966, Texas Western
coach Don Haskins started
an unprecedented five black
players.
It even has a built-in
Hollywood ending: The
underdog Miners upset leg-
endary coach Adolph Rupp's
Kentucky Wildcats to win the
national championship, a
victory that some credit as a
significant step in the de-
segregation of the South.
But since "Glory Road" is
a Jerry Bruckheimer pro-
duction, these inspirational
events can't just play out for
themselves. They have to be
amped up with an overbear-


Brokeback Mountain
Based on the E. Annie Proulx
story about a forbidden and secre-
tive relationship between two cow-
boys and their lives over the years:

one of the killers. 1 hr. 38 mins.

Casanova
Notorious womanizer Casanova
sets his sights on an unattainable
prize. With a reputation for charming
the opposite sex regardless of their
marital status, Casanova discovers a
beautiful woman who seems imper-
vious to his charms. As he begins to
pursue her, he finds himself falling
in love. 1 hr. 48 min.

In an already kid-friendly holiday
season, Steve Martin and Bonnie
Hunt return with their brood of 12,

End of the Spear
Mincayani, a tribesman in the
Ecuadorean rain forest, lives by a
violent code: killor be killed. His
world changes after he and his fami-
ly kill a group of missionaries.
Following the massacre, Mincayani


ing score, along with hyper-
active camerawork ahd
jumpy edits that obscure the
action at some of the most
crucial spots. (You want a.
clear shot of Pat Riley getting
dunked on by David "Big
Daddy" Lattin, don't you?)
Thankfully, though, the
performances in James
Gartner's directorial debut
are mostly understated. As-
Haskins, Josh Lucas tones
down the traditional tough-
love routine to a believable
level, and Derek Luke is
totally compelling as show-
boating star guard Bobby
Joe Hill. He and the rest of
the actors, many of whom
had no prior on-screen ex-
perience, have an easy
camaraderie that makes you
believe they truly are a team,
on and off the court es-
pecially when they realize


and his family abandon violence
and embrace their enemies. When
the now-grown son of one of the
slain missionaries returns to learn
about his father's death, he
becomes part of Mincayani's family.

kins didn't win the national

much of the story intact.
Haskins came to Texas
Western (now the University
of Texas-El Paso) after coach-,
ing high school girls and
was asked to live in the
dorms with his wife (Emily
Deschanel) and three kids.
Realizing that the basketball

Good Night and
Good Luck
"Good Night, And Good Luck"
takes place during the early days of
broadcast journalism in 1950's
.America. It chronicles the real-life
conflict between TV newsman
Edward R. Murrow and Senator
Joseph McCarthy and the House
Un-American Activities Committee.
With a desire to report the facts and
enlighten the public, Murrow, and his
dedicated staff headed by his
producer Fred Friendly and Joe
Wershba In the CBS newsroom -
defy corporate and sponsorship
pressures to examine the lies and
scaremongering tactics perpetrated
by McCarthy during his communist
"witch-hunts." A very public feud
develops when the senator responds
by accusing the anchor of being a
communist. In this climate of fear
and reprisal, the CBS crew carries
on and their tenacity will prove his-
toric and monumental.

ments to play.
Among them were Hill,
the feisty charmer; forward
Harry Flournoy (Mehcad
Brooks), whose momma
'travels all the way from Gary,
Ind., to make sure he studies;
Willie "Scoops" Cager (Da-
maine Radcliffe), a forward
whose heart condition forces
him to stay on the bench,
and Lattin (Schin A.S. Kerr),
the quietly powerful center
from Houston.
The first encounter be-
tween the black and white
players consists of sideways
glances at the cafeteria table,
followed by a raucous pickup
game using a head of lettuce
instead of a ball. The ways in
which these guys tease, chal-
lenge and ultimately learn
from each other is genuinely
inspiring, and it all unfolds
effortlessly.

ers set out to investigate the myths
of the legendary creature King Kong.

er a land unaffected by time.as
Kong lives with dinosaurs that have
been hidden and protected from

it may only be a matter of time
before Kong escapes his confines.

at a dinner party: "Did
you cook this or order out?"
"Your last party was so much
bigger." Remember, everyone
is doing his or her best. As are
you.

( TAURUS (April 20-May
20). Movies, art and
music have the beau-
tiful gift of being able to stand
to the test of time. But not
everything should last forever
take care not to simply
endure a situation, a habit or a
practice unless its eventual
goal is worthy.

pyrite (known as "fool's gold").
The stars urge you to look
beyond the sparkle to see what
is real.

.. CANCER (June 22-July
22). What you hear
over the proverbial
grapevine is best ignored.
Someone who puts on a strong
front and refuses to hide out
no matter what people are say-
ing is someone worthy of your
friendship, your business and
your respect.

SLEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
Practical matters
come into play. If
you've been denied credit, this
is an excellent day to try again.
Ask for records, make valid
complaints, and do what you
can to set things straight. It's
the little things that have the
biggest influence. -

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22). This is a day of
reversals.
Homemakers might take on a
stint in some kind of manage-
ment-training program. Big
bosses may work in daycare.
Have fun playing with people's
perceptions, try doing what
they don't expect of you.

12B VENICE GONDOLIER SUN


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). People may ask
the impossible of
you, but you are capable of
impossible feats once you put
your mind to it. When you
commit, do it wholeheartedly.
On a romantic note, you
need a change of pace, not
a change of mate.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-
Nov. 21). In matters of
love, you don't always
have the answers, but some-
times silence is best. You are a
powerful role model for chil-
dren and should be aware that
they are watching you.
Tonight, someone else picks
up the tab.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
N 22-Dec. 21). The
planets align to high-
light your mercy. Someone
close to you really needs it.
If you can tame the anger in
the pit of your stomach,
you can conquer just about
anything!

SCAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). The stars
show you finding your
balance as a leader of people.
Baseball great Tommy Lasorda
likened managing people to
holding a dove in the hand:
"Squeeze it too hard, you'll kill
it not hard enough, it'll fly
away."

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
. : Feb. 18). Your
thoughts turn to love,
romance, passion or some
form of all of the above. This
happens both at inopportune
times and also at extremely
opportune times.

k PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20). Just being able
to breath in and out,
with your heart continuously
beating, is one of nature's
many miracles. What seeming-
ly small miracles have gone
unnoticed in your midst-lately?,
Now is good to think about
this..

STYLIST


wanted to know who he hired
because his pictures were so
well done.
Sometime after that Judy,
unbeknownst to Thayer,
entered him in a photography
contest and he won, to his
surprise.
When he went to the event
to accept the prize, he was
approached by Patrick Litch-
field, one-time photographer
for Britain's Royal Family, who
told him his work was very
good and he should think
about going professional.
Thayer has won recogni-
tion for his salons, awards for
his styling and he continues
to receive awards for his fine
art photography.
Thayer has since .turned
Salon International over to his
son, and now he travels to
shows nationwide to exhibit
his work, while traveling
worldwide to get his pho-
tographs.
He does all his own digital
developing and printing,
which is usually on canvas.
Thayer's art can be seen on
his Web site, wpthayer.com,
and you can e-mail him at
thayerphoto@earthlink.net.
