EPA would



'quietly go away'

The transcript of the first of two of closed-door
council meetings offers a look at Venice's
reaction to pending criminal pollution
charges and why they were brought.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


There was little doubt by
investigators that Venice pur-
posely violated Environmen-
tal Protection Agency rules.
And the smoking gun did-
n't come from
in the form of
bogus reports
and sawed-
off water
pipes.
It was an
interview be-
tween former
city manager
George Hunt Black
and investi-
gators when Hunt said paying
pollution fines was "a cost of
doing business," accQrding
to Venice City Council Shade
Meeting transcripts, released
Friday afternoon.
S'We violate, you fine us,
we pay the fines, and move
on,' City Attorney Bob
Anderson retold council
members at the Oct. 26, 2004.,
closed-door meeting.
"And quite frankly, the
Assistant U.S. Attorney was
surprised to hear that, be-
cause her next response was,
'Mr. Hunt, one of the most
difficult things is proving
willful and knowingly having
done something. And you've
just told me that the city of
Venice willfully and know-
ingly violates its permits and


the Clean Water Act as a cost
of doing business.'"
It was comments like
those from Hunt that made
Venice's defense nearly im-
possible, according to cur-
rent City Manager Marty
Black, who took over after
Hunt resigned in January
2004.
Then-council member
Jim Myers was the first to
respond after hearing of the
$120,000 proposed minimum
fine: "Wow."
Hindsight
The transcript from this
first meeting 15 months ago,
held to update council
members on the EPA in-
vesti-gation, reveal that for-
mer city management be-
lieved EPA investigators
would "quietly go away"
because the city had done
nothing wrong. _
And council members
believed the
former city
manager,
Hunt, and
utilities di-
rector, John
Lane, and
followed
their lead.
"In hind-
sight, that Anderson
might not
have been the best call,"

Suenos de Luisa (Dreams of Louise)


The sight of abject
poverty moved Venice
resident Louise
Brunberg to open a
school for the poor
in Nicaragua, paying
teachers salaries out
of her own pocket.
The mothers named
it Suenos de Luisa.
Today, La Escuela
Suenos de Luisa
educates 260
students with
10 teachers.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Some people relax when
they retire. Louise Brunberg
built a school.
What began as a visit by
a retiring teacher and peace
activist from Norwalk,
Conn., to its adopted sister
city in Nagarote, Nicaragua,
more than a decade ago
turned into -a mission to
help the poor.
Now, at 77 years of age,
Brunberg is on another
mission making sure the
school she built continues
after she is gone.
When Brunberg visited
Nagarote in 1993 she was
overwhelmed, especially by
the suffering of children.
She was determined to
make a difference in the
lives of children who sur-
vive in dreadful poverty,
unable to read, with little-
to-no hope of going to
school without someone's
intervention.
Some of Nagarote's
poorest families could not
afford government schools

High school students and their teachers from the Instituto in Nagarote spent the day
helping elementary school students at Suenos de Luisa. The school began as a soup:
kitchen underwritten by Venice resident Louise Brunberg.


because they lacked money
for uniforms, notebooks,
and other supplies. And
there were other barriers,
like alcoholism and illiter-
acy.
While government-run
schools are free, education
is not compulsory, and il-
literate parents seemed to
have no hope for a better
Future. A career teacher,
Brunberg understood the
dilemma well.
The first task was to
provide for basic needs. By
1996 she established a soup
kitchen for 30 kids, provid-
ing what was for many their
one and only hot meal for
the day.
Then she came up with
an idea -- sell off her
grandfather's oceanside
home in New England.
With $1.2 million in her


pocket, she went to work
building a school for Naga-
rote's underclass children.
Using the interest, she
was able to pay for a few
teachers on an annual
basis. By 1998 she estab-
lished a school in an aban-
doned building with the
help of the mayor. Today, La
Escuela Suenos de Luisa -
the school of Luisa's dreans
- serves 260 students,
preschool through fourth
grade, with a staff of 10 -
all paid out of Brunberg's
pocket.
In addition to paying
teacher salaries, Brunberg
created the Right To Learn
Foundation, based out of
Block Island, R.I. Funded
through private donations,
it provides additional
money for books and extra
salaries.


The school also receives
$62 each month from Ja-
panese Cellular Co., a local
business in Nagarote, for
groceries. The American/
Nicaraguan Foundation in
Managua donates monthly
supplies, and even provid-
ed an additional building.
The city of Nagarote, with
its supportive mayor, do-
nated a fence, pavilion and
wall divider.
Brunberg also provides
a $500 university scholar-
ship each year to needy
students who could not
otherwise coAtinue their
education. She gives 18
students about $50 each
month, mostly to cover
bus fare.
In her own words, here
is Brunberg's story of com-

Hatchett Creek plan receives OK


From the an. 16, 1975, Venice Gondolier Sun


STAFF REPORT

Littrell Concrete of Venice
has received approval of the
state Department of Pollution
Control (DPC) for its plans to
halt pollution of Hatchett
Creek. I
The letter of approval is
being prepared at Fort Myers
by Richard Morgan, DPC
enforcement coordinator,
which will be sen to ie coin-
crete manufacturer.
The DPC also advised
Littrell to remove discarded
concrete blocks from the bot-
tom of the creek, Morgan
said. The firm has cooperated
with the DPC's demand that it
find a way of stopping ce-
ment-carrying runoff water
from entering the creek, he
advised.
A .subsidiary of Florida
Mining and Materials Corp-
oration of Tampa, the Venice
plant is located on North


Seaboard Avenue near the
Intracoastal Waterway.
More than 100 residents of
Venice Bay Trailer Park, near
the plant, have been vocal in
their complaints about the
pollution.
A spokesman for the 130
residents of the park, Linden
L. Adams of 1 Momingstar
Place, related that a petition
was circulated more than a
eari ago,vwhich was signed by
almost all of the park's resi-


dents. It demanded that the
company end its pollution
practices.
In November, Littrell sub-
mitted plans in compliance
with the DPC's request for a
program to stop dumping
Wastes into the creek. The
company's engineer outlined
how theifirm intended to stop
the runoff ofwastewater from
the plant.
Littrell officials say they are
only running water into the
creek, anfd that the reason

"We're trying to abide with

If you drive a lot and look
around, you can still see an
occasional roof covered partly
with blue plastic.
The ubiquitous plastic was
put in place by the Army
Corps of Engineers following
Hurricane Charley's rampage
of Aug. 13, 2004. Many homes
awaiting repairs had blue
plastic roofs for a year or more.
But Tropica Bob saw an-
other use for tae blue plastic
the other day.
The plastic with its "FEMA"
markings was spread across a
front yard, topped with yard
sale items.
Good idea. And when the
sale is over, hose it down and
let the kids play slip and slide.

County purchases Warm Mineral Springs creek parcel


Neighbors want the county to do more
to stop code violations before more land is
developed along Warm Mineral Springs Creek.


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT EDITOR

It was billed as a major
accomplishment by county
officials, but those who visit-
ed the site discovered it was
a minuscule step in trying to
protect "a rare gem."
Sarasota County recently
bought less than a parcel of
creek land measuring less
than an acre in Warm Min-
eral Springs for $82,000.
Brooke Elias, Sarasota County
project scientist who helped
purchase the land, said ac-
quiring the Warm Mineral
Springs Creek site is part of
the Environmentally Sensitive
Lands Protection Program.
Last year, voters approved
extending funding of this
countywide program.
Archaeologists have called
Warm Mineral Springs a rare
gem that contains a wealth of
information about Florida's
Paleo-Indians, who are be-
lieved to have lived there
between 9,500 and 12,000
years ago. Exploration of the
spring site has yielded pre-
historic bones, tools and
animal bone fragments, ac-
cording to the county.
The Warm Mineral Springs
Creek is a tributary of the,
Myakka River, iand protects
water quality for the river's
drainage area and outlet
into Charlotte Harbor.
Along with golden leather
fern, bromeliads and coontie,
the site contains scrubby flat-
woods that support foraging
habitat for gopher tortoises
and Florida scrub jays. How-
ever, the site is also littered
with buckets, beer bottles,
rotting diapers and other trash
that obstructs areas of the
crm tq k ce


used for breeding.
Too slow
According to Ray Stoner a
Warm Mineral Springs resi-
dent who frequents the area
near the newly purchased
creek land, he spends hours
cleaning the land along the
creek. He said the county
effort is too slow, as land
along the creek is developing
quickly. r
"The creek flowing out of
Warm Mineral Springs is one
of the few in.Sar*sota County
that has very lIttle human
impact and still[ retains its
meandering curves," said
Elias. "Many, if :iot most, of
Florida's streams and creeks
have been channelized 0to
eliminate mosquito breeding
areas or deepen water for
boat access." '
The newly protected parcel
abuts land along -he creek that
was originally platted for the
public good in the 1950s. I
"That means it cannot Pe
developed," explained Elias.
"Our acquisitions within this
site continue to provide a
protective buffer of land to
these original narrow strips
along the fragile reek system."
However, based on the
; new homes bui t along the
creek, Stoner believes the
county's Natural Resources
and Resource Protbction divi-
sions are not doing enough
to protect it.
"There's a house along the
creek where the concrete stairs
lead down neai the water,"
Stoner said while at the site
Tuesday. "Now, how is that
protecting this fragile creek? :
"If the county knew what
they were doing, the building
and protection departments

this and other homes con-
structed along the creek.
There are about 15 of them.
They are all on septic sys-
tems. Then you have a group
of houses in the opposite
direction. Then you have the
kids who come here and
throw beer bottles in the
creek."
Playing games
Stoner said in all of his
years living at Warm Mineral
Springs, he has never wit-
nessed the county organize a
clean-up near the creek. This
is just one reason why Ston-
er wants the county either
to help fund mass clean-up
efTor fs. by ig lgbagr1ant


or to send experts to work
with him who understand
why the land needs to be
maintained.
"The last time the county
came here, they bulldozed
part of another nearby nat-
ural creek and they tore up
the other side of the area
where they just bought. They
don't pay attention to the
artifacts in the water or the
animal remains," he said. "I
don't want to follow the coun-
ty rules if it means ripping
up the land. I'd rather keep
dealing with volunteers who
understand why this land
should be a historical park,
manatee "preserve or bird
sanctuary Otherwise. the
n O K Bf-I ,, ,.i . .' !-,


county ought to quit playing
games and just allow more
homes and a few condos to
be built along the creek."
Elias said the county has
not contacted all of the
landowners along the creek
to purchase more land. The
law also doesn't allow for
the land to be obtained
through eminent domain
with environmentally sensi-
tive land program funds.
According to Elias, the
natural state of Warm Mineral
Springs Creek provides one of
the few cold weather refuges
for West Indian, manatees in
southwest Florida.
Stoner's biggest fear is the
county .will entei the creek


with large heavy equipment
to clear natural brush. He
said the way he and other
volunteers maintain the
creek helps manatees be-
cause they are trying to keep
the trash' away from the area
where manatees breed.
However,- because the
creek has dead vegetation in
it mixed with trash, manatees
no longer travel to areas
where they've been going
for years, he said.
For more information on
the site, contact Brooke Elias
at the Sarasota County Call
Center at (941) 861-5000.

County to *city: Never mind that annex Ginvesteigat'ion


It turns out Sarasota County endorsed the Villa
Lago annexation three years ago but simply for-
got it had.


JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

There was plenty of noise a
month ago when Sarasota
County Commissioners
launched an investigation
into the city ofVenice's annex-
ation practices.
After complaints from
county residents, commis-
sioners wanted to know how
a 46-acre parcel of land that
barely touched city limits
could've been annexed into
Venice in 2003.
The answer: very easily,
and with Sarasota County's
blessing. Current staff and
commissioners simply forgot.
Commissioner Jon Thax-


ton admitted large-scale
turnover in the county plan-
ning department the past
four years may have con-
tributed to Sarasota County
forgetting it actually endors-
ed an annexation two years
ago it was about to challenge
now.
"In all truthfulness, when I
raised concerns about the
Villa Lago annexations, I did
not recall at that time the
agreement with Pinebrook
Road," Thaxton said. "So I
don't hesitate to accept
responsibility for my own
lapse.... It is virtually impos-
sible to keep track with the
volume of materials (com-
missioners consider)."


We told you
' City officials have said all
along that the Villa Lago
property was legally annexed
into city limits. The property's
neighbors, Sorrento Ranches
Homeowners Association,
have challenged the annexa-
tion and proposed develop-
ment because it believes Villa
Lago is out of character with
the area.
Sarasota County launched
the investigation Dec. 5 be-
cause a pair of S&J Properties
annexations, totaling about
25 acres, only border the con-
tested Villa Lago. Venice City
Council will cast its final vote
Tuesday on whether to bring
the S&J land, which borders
Laurel Road to the north and
Laurel Nokomis School to the
west, into the city.
The widening and exten-
sion of Pinebrook Road led to


the county endorsing the
annexation. Sarasota County
used eminent domain in 1998
to acquire the 5-acre parcel of
land Villa Lago was using to
border city limits and turned
it into a stormwater retention
pond.
"In eminent domain, the
condemning authority has
the legal obligation to make
the property owner whole ....
It was concluded the pond
was considered to be a road-
side appurtenance right of
way and therefore, should
not have an adverse affect on
an annexation petition to the
city of Venice due to the loss
of contiguity," wrote Jim
Harriott, Sarasota County
interim public works director.
Resurrection?
County Administrator Jim
Ley, along with Thaxton,


agreed this experience em-
phasizes the importance of
. resurrecting a comprehensive
joint planning agreement.
Such a document would map
out future annexation plans
by the city, installation of
water and sewer services,
road costs and many other
infrastructure issues related
to growth.
The city manager is open
to such discussions, but Black
said if the county wants
* merely to dust off the JPA pro-
posal from several years ago,
Venice will be unwilling to
participate.
Black, who was directing
Venice's planning depart-
ment back then, said that was
a one-sided agreement in
which the county dictated
fees the city must pay.
Reaching some type of
consensus is the only way to


halt the competition between-
cities and counties for new
developments, according to,
Thaxton. !)I
Private companies are pit-,-
ting city vs. county to find out ,
which one can grant con-,
struction approval and utility
services fast enough in orders
to generate tax revenue. ,
The focus needs to be on ,
what's good for the entire),
community, Thaxton said. .
"What's happened now, g
counties are nothing more
than big cities..... That's what-,
they've morphed into the last.,^
few decades," Thaxton said. rI
"It's become a competitionqL
for annexations. I can't pic-,
ture anyone, realistically, de-
nying that." 13

Will it stay or will it go: Council to decide water tower's future J


Eagle Point Homeowners Association is asking to
change its annexation agreement so it can
demolish the historic structure.


JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Venice City Council mem-
bers will decide Tuesday
whether a water tower at the
historic Eagle Point Club
must be preserved or torn
down.
Eagle Point Homeowners
Association has requested
permission to demolish the
historic water tower it com-
mitted to preserving more
than 15 years ago in an
annexation agreement.
During that time, however,


poor maintenance has led to
deterioration. In a private
neighborhood of million-dol-
lar homes that border Roberts
Bay and U.S. 41, vegetation
has become so overgrown
around the 54-foot water
tower that a 20-foot palm tree
is growing up the middle of it.
National Register of His-
torical Places photos from
1990 show this same over-
grown spot as an open court-
yard area.
Venice Historic Preserva-
tion Board members ruled in
October that Eagle Point


must honor its agreement.
The other historic structures
in the agreement the cot-
tages and clubhouse all
appear to be well-main-
tained.
"In looking back at this,
perhaps the city has been
remiss in not going out and
inspecting to make sure this
contract was upheld. .... It
appears now it has been
neglected," said Betty Intag-
liatta, who was involved in
the 1991 agreement, at the
October meeting.
Venice City Council meets
at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at City
Hall in council chambers.
Also on Tuesday
School tax extension -


Bob Earley, associate superin-
tendent with the Sarasota
County School District, will
speak to city council seeking
support of the district's 1-mill

Charter Review Com-
mittee Council member
Bill Willson will be appointed
the liaison to the Charter
Review Committee, whose
members are Jim Leis, Greg
Shanika, Diana Mier, Greg
Roberts and Jean Trammell.
The first meeting of this
board is scheduled for 9 a.m.
Wednesday. These five resi-
dents will determine if voters
should decide on changing
council member term limits,
limit public disclosure of
management audits and con-


solidate supervisory power
within the city manager's
office so the finance director
and the police and fire chiefs
can be hired and fired by the
city manager.

Goodrich property's fate unknown


BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


A proposal to fill in large
portion of wetlands as a site
for 200 condominiums and
78 boat docks could face a
major roadblock before it
ever gets off the ground.
This was
the early in-
formation "
Sarasota
County Com-
missioner
Shannon ,-
Staub could Staub
provide this
week to the
anxious residents who make
up the South Venice Civic
Association.
"This is great news, if it
ends the building of that
property," said Bill Steen, pre-
sident of the association.
Steen said the association
has focused much of its ef-
forts to trying to figure out a
way to stop the proposed
condominiums.
"We have' 940 dues-paying
members and all of them are
interested in preserving this
land," he said.
The so-called "Goodrich
project" consists of 40 acres of
land north of the South Ven-
ice Yacht Club to Shamrock
Park and Nature Center. The
land was bought in April 2004
by Frank Goodrich of Georgia
for $1.2 million from Frank.
Connor. The land has a cur-
rent appraised value of
$843,000.
About 26 acres of the land
is considered wetlands. The
balance is not.
"That is very environmen-
tally sensitive," Staub said.
The wetlands have white,
red and black mangroves, not
to mention untold numbers
of nesting birds and other


wildlife that currently claim
the property as their home.
Preliminary no
Goodrich originally sub-
mitted plans to build the con-
dominiums and docks to the
county and Southwest Flor-
ida Water Management
District, which Staub said is
typically the last place to go
for such applications for
waterfront lands.
The water district object-
ed, saying it doesn't allow the
taking of massive acres of
wetlands.
The land is also high on the
county's environmentally
sensitive lands priority list for
future purchase.
Goodrich withdrew his
request from the water dis-
trict and the county and filed
for a permit to build with the
U.S. Army Corps of Engin-
eers.
That is where the request
now stands and where Staub
said the project might die.
"Preliminary staff contact
to the agencies is recom-
mending denial," she said.
The crowd of about 120
roared their approval and
applauded before Staub
could add that everything to
this point is unofficial and
there were no guarantees
until the final Army Corps
decision comes in within 60
days.
Staub said she has no idea
where the developer would
go next if the Corps denies the
application. "He is allowed
some development now," she
said. "I am not saying any-
thing is a done deal."
Balancing act
The land is zoned for sin-
gle-family residences on the
14 acres of dry land.
"It is a very tricky balanc-


ing act because of the proper-
ty right in Florida, which
allows him to build," Staub
said. Residents wondered
whether the county would
buy the property if the devel-
oper can't build.
Being next to the Sham-
rock Park makes it an ideal
location for the natural ex-
pansion to the south.
"I'd love to see the land in
county ownership," Staub,
said. "The county has to be
careful. We have to have a
willing seller and a fair price."
All environmentally sensi-
tive lands are purchased for
the county through the Na-
ture Conservancy.
The civic association is in-
terested in selling its 8 acres to
the county, but that process
has slowed and will be read-
dressed if the county buys the
Goodrich property.
Delays in that purchase
have developed because the
association would like a con-
nection to the Venetian Wa-
terway linear park. A deal was
agreed to in 2004, but that
deal fell through when the
county discovered the prop-
. erty is not connected to the
linear park.
The association was then
offered more money by
Goodrich than the county
was willing to pay, killing any
deal.
Steen said the sale of the
Goodrich property to the
county would create an op-
portunity to link Shamrock,
Park with the association
land. All of this would allow
the association to sell to the
county.
"We have board support
for that," he said. He admitted
that such a deal could take
years if there are more delays
in determining the fate of the
Goodrich property.


CITY NOTES


VHA accepts
Lopez resignation
Venice Housing Authority
board members officially ac-
cepted the resignation ofVHA
Executive Director Peter Lo-
pez on Thursday, three weeks
after the Venice Gondolier Sun
first revealed Lopez submit-
ted the letter.
"I begrudgingly move that
we accept it," VHA member
Joe Dalton said at the meet-
ing.
Lopez, 52, was hired two
years ago and is credited with
digging Grove Terrace, the.
only public housing complex
in South County, out of a
financial hole and a load of
building code violations.
A replacement has not
been named, but Lopez nom-
inated Operations Manager
Deborah Bevan to replace
him. VHA members will de-
cide in February whether to
hire Bevan or advertise for a
replacement.
Lopez currently makes
$55,000, and he does not have
another job lined up.
VHA and Lopez both have
said his resignation will not
affect pending redevelop-
ment efforts for Grove Ter-
race, recently renamed by
VHA board members to
Brookside Terrace. An appli-
cation for Low-Income
Housing Tax Credit funding is
due Feb. 1 to pay for demoli-
tion of the current housing-
and building 72 new units.
Work at South Jetty
Due to maintenance on
the embankments at the
Venice jetties, the South Jetty
park will have limited access
and parking beginning Jan.
23.
The work will last approxi-
mately one week.
Because of construction
equipment, there will be
fewer parking spaces. Enter-


ing and exiting the park will
both be done through the
lane normally used for exit-
ing. The lane usually used to
enter will be closed.
The improvements are be-
ing done by the West Coast
Inland Navigational District.
State rejects
Envision Venice
The city's high-profile En-
vision Venice project failed to
meet all of the state's stan-
dards for an Evaluation and
Appraisal Report, according
to an initial review by the
Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs.
"The department has
made a preliminary determi-
nation that the adopted EAR
is insufficient because-it did
not adequately address the
requirements of Chapter
163.3191, Part II, Florida
Statues," the DCA memo
states..
"The department com-
mends the city's efforts to
identify a vision for growth
and development," the
memo went on to compli-
ment.
An EAR is required by the
state to determine how suc-
cessful any government's
comprehensive plan the
blueprint for future develop-
ment has been before
updating a plan. Following
state approval of an EAR, a
government can begin creat-
ing the new comprehensive
plan.
Envision Venice was the
very public process city offi-
cials are using. While many
people praised its open for-
ums and colorful presenta-
tions, some residents criti-
cized its effectiveness.
According to the state
DCA, "major issues" the EAR
failed to address sufficiently
include:
No assessments ofspecif-


ic objectives within each ele-
ment as it relates to major
issues;
Report does not identify
planning actions or corrective
measures to address major
issues; and
Report's analysis states
that a need for workforce
housing exists, but did not
include suggested corrective
measures or planning
actions.
Venice has until Feb. 3 to
make these corrections,
according to the memo.
Habitat-city partnership
moves toward approval
Height restrictions and
strict land-use districts along
U.S. 41 Business weren't the
only topics .at Tuesday's
Venice Planning Commission
meeting.
Among their topics were:
Habit and YMCA expan-
sion Commissioners rec-
ommended approval of the
rezoning.of 2 acres, known as
the Knights Trail Tract, on
Knights Trail Road from Sara-
sota County's rural zoning to
"government use." The intent
is to build 15-20 affordable
housing units through Hab-
itat for Humanity, and a
Venice YMCA facility in North
Venice.
The land would remain
city property, but the build-
ings would belong to Venice
Area Habitat for Humanity
and South County YMCA.
Parking would be provided by
the Waterford Companies
development next door,
where a movie theater, retail
center and multi-family de-
velopment will be built, con-
tingent on city council ap-
proval.

Anderson talked about
how, as far as the EPA and

concerned, the city "has a

said those comments by Hunt

before handing out copies.
The second meeting, in
which council members
agreed to the plea agreement,
is still being transcribed.
Anderson has not reviewed
that document yet, so it has
not been released.


"'Mr. Hunt, one of the most difficult things is
proving willful and knowingly having done
something. And you've just told me that the
city of Venice willfully and knowingly violates its
permits and the Clean Water Act as a cost


of doing business.'"
City Attorney Bob Anderson, recounting an interview
between former city manager George Hunt, and an assistant
U.S. Attorney, as set forth in a transcript released Friday


investigators didn't help.
Venice wound up paying
$110,000 in fines last month
for violating EPA permits in
2001, opened itself up to
stricter regulations and
promised to assist federal
prosecutors in the investiga-
tion and prosecution of
employees and officials who
participated in the violations.
Those people were identified
only as The Executive Group
in the city's plea agreement.
Accountable.
The city had been hesitant
to release the first shade
meeting transcript, but An-
derson determined the
document does not damage
the EPA's pending investiga-
tion.
"I believe, as far as the Oct.
26 meeting is concerned, that
transcript needs to be filed
with the public through the

Friday's transcript sheds
light on the reaction of coun-
cil members, the city manag-
er and city attorney at the
prospect of Venice facing
felony charges.
Hunt, the former city man-
* ager, was on the verge of hav-
ing obstruction of justice
charges filed against him just
before resigning as city-man-
ager in January 2004, accord-
ing to the transcript.
The city attorney said that
Hunt's departure, along with
shaky evidence, is most likely
why authorities did not file
charges at that time.
"It just troubles me, as a
manager, to think that the city
will be held corporately
accountable for individual
actions," Black said at the
shade meeting.

passion and commitment to
children living a legacy of civil
war and corruption, created
in part, she says, by a failed
United States foreign policy.
******
Civil war, Iran Contra, and
corrupt governments have
devastated this third world
country, leaving Nicaragua in
a deplorable situation.
With a population of 5 mil-
lion, unemployment is at 60
percent and illiteracy is 50
percent.
It is the largest country in
Central American, yet despite
its size and resources it is one
of the poorest. The reason is
they have not been able to
control their own destiny.
Nagarote has a population
of 35,000, with more than
40 elementary schools and
one high school, called the
Institute. It once had a thriv-
ing seaport, Puerto Sandino,
which was damaged in 1983
after a CIA attack and now
has limited activity.
I first traveled to Nagarote
with the Norwalk/Nagarote
Sister City Group in 1993. I've
returned every year. For the
last several years I have been
returning in January for three
months because their school
year begins in February.
On my first trip I was over-
whelmed with the poverty I
saw. My first few years were
spent giving food to people,
especially during the drought
of 1994. I also taught English
as a second language at the
public library.
In 1996 I started a soup
kitchen in the home of one of

the children I fed. It grew.
Mothers cooked the food,
and received food as their
pay. They named it Suenos de
Luisa (Dreams of Louise).
When the roof started to
leak (for the umteenth time),
the mayor of Nagarote offered
me an abandoned building,
which we turned into a
school.
I had to make the place
livable, with a roof, doors,
floors, grills over windows
and a latrine. I managed
with the labor of parents.
We opened as a soup
kitchen, but with so many
children not attending
schools, it became both a
soup kitchen and a school. In
1998 there was one director,
one teacher and a group of
children all ages learning to
read.
The years have flown by,
with new additions to the
school. Today, we have 260
students on double sessions,
10 teachers, a translator, bus
driver and a night watchman.
The school has become an
example in town for. other
teachers who come to ob-
serve.
We have good attendance.
"Students are well treated, and
receive breakfast and lunch.
We are the only school in
town that serves food. The
mothers still cook for. the
same pay food to bring
home.
The children start at 3
years old in preschool and
continue through the fourth
grade. They attend fifth grade
in one of the city schools.

Daily routine
Surviving in Nicaragua
takes every resource avail-
able. The day starts before
sunrise, with people scrub-
bing clothes, starting a wood
fire for coffee and taking
showers.
There are no bookstores,
no pretty gardens, no special
events outside the church.
The noise level is loud with
children and foraging ani-
mals.
Since people do not have
much money, their diet is the
same. Rice and more rice,
rarely with meat. Sometimes
they have beans. A typical
evening meal can be rice and
a tortilla. People go to bed
hungry.
One night, as I was prepar-
ing a fried chicken and potato
dinner in an electric frying
pan, Gladys arrived with her
new baby and two hungry
children. They smelled the
chicken. One of her daugh-
ters whispered to me, "Give
my mother a piece of chick-
en."
Often we shared our meals
with other children, who in
turn shared mouthfuls with
others who arrived later.
In my room, I have a gas
stove, a refrigerator for the
school and a toaster oven. I
biTy two loaves of bread every
day. Children often come by
for cold water, and for a piece
of bread, which I toast for
them.
My day starts before sun-
rise too, because I open the
gate for the mother who
cleans the school at 5:45 a.m.,


and the bus driver (he picks
up the children in a small
pickup truck) who arrives at
6:30 a.m. Myra, who also
lives at the school, insists on
washing my clothes.
After a cold morning show-
er, I prepare breakfast for
Myra, her two children and
myself. I try to get to my
classroom by 7:30 a.m. when
children are arriving. We
must sweep and arrange the
chairs, as dust is constant.
Despite all the hardships,
there is joy and friendliness.
They know patience, which
has helped them endure the
civil war, the embargo and
heavy unemployment. They
are constantly looking for
ways to obtain medication,
food, and other essential
items.
Minibus needed
The school has practical
and urgent needs. Right now
our biggest need is for a
minibus to transport children
to and from the school. Our
current truck is in the garage
much of the time for repairs,
and it's too small.
We lboked at a minibus
last year that would hold 25
children comfortably, but
the clutch was slipping and
for $5,000 it wasn't a wise
buy. We are trying to raise
$10,000 to purchase a newer
bus.
In addition to transporta-
tion, the teaching profession
needs to be updated. Nic-
aragua is old fashioned in its

advisory board accepted all
public comment, adjourning
the workshop at 6:15 p.m.
MEA's Gerald Bandy pre-
sented an outline of the the
update and preliminary find-
ings. He said FAA guidelines
would be of little use because
they tend to pay little atten-
tion to master plans unless
unless the airports are big
enough to warrant an airport
tower.
Bandy reviewed a few
trends in aviation that may
affectVMA.
"We anticipate somewhat
slow growth through 2025,"
he said. "We are seeing a
greater ramping up of train-


ing operations. Also, we see
renewed growth of single-
engine aircraft being manu-
factured throughout the
country in the future. Also,
looking 20 years out, we see
a need for a parallel taxi
system ... for more efficient
takeoffs."
Parallel runways require
at least 250 feet of separa-
tion between runways,
something that may require
VMA to take out some tie-
downs to make room for des-
ignated turn-around areas, he
said.
Bandy asked the airport
board for a list of its goals and
objectives by next meeting so


they may be
into the plan.

Feedback
Sue Lang, representing
the Venice Neighborhoods
Coalition, used the opportu-
nity to object to the airport
manager's response to previ-
ous written concerns about
airport noise levels and pilots
who do not use the runway
farthest from the neighbor-
hoods.
"We are not happy with
the response," Lang told the
board prior to the workshop.
"We applaud VASI and
their fly-friendly pamphlet.
Lots of pilots are following

teaching methods, with too
much copying from the
blackboard and too much
repitition of copying in their
notebooks.
Students are bored, and
lose interest. They miss out
on the fundamentals of
math and English. Plus,
there are no outside activi-
ties, which we take. for
granted. It's sad to see chil-
dren just hanging around
with nothing to do.
The minute I back the
truck out of the school, they
come running, asking for a
ride. And of course, they
hang around looking for
food. Many don't have meals


at night.
They need to be more
involved with activities and
small groups. This a tall order
in a very poor country where
50 percent of the population
is under 15 years of age.
I would like to build a
structure behind the school
that would house guests,
serve as a teachers lounge
and be an enrichment cen-
ter for workshops, student
groups and miscellaneous
activities. And we could
have a playground.

Right to leamr
Brunberg's work could


best be summarized by a
quote by Sir Winston
Churchill that appears on
her school brochure: "We
make a living by what we
get. We make a life by what
we give."
She left this weekend for
Nagarote, reconnecting with
her friends and the children
she has come to love.
When she returns she
will devote part of her time
promoting Right To Learn.
It's her best shot at ensuring
the school's future.

those procedures. Still, there
is a tremendous overflight
going over (neighborhoods)

She and others wanted to
know why their houses were
allowed to be built in the first,
place if the city was antici-
pating the kind of growth
that attracted jets to the air-
port.
When many purchased
their homes near the airport
there was no expectation
that VMA would become
much larger, said Lang.
"We have a compatibility
problem. There were reason-
able expectations when these
homes were built that your
quality of life wouldn't be
(negatively affected) by the
same local government that
approved your housing.
We're looking for construc-
tive solution. The master
plan is very flawed."
"We could live very com-
fortably if pilots would follow
VASI's (fly-friendly) guide-
lines," said Venice resident
Bill Noonan. "The dread we
have is what's coming down
the road. We don't want it
noisy. When you mentioned


possibly adding cargo opera-
tions, I almost fell off my
chair. We can solve this prob-
lem with a little enforcement.
Don't make it worse."
The sentiment was echoed
by members of the Golden
Beach Homeowners Associ-
ation.
Ted Vaughn, representing
Bellagio's homeowners asso-
ciation, said his neighbors
are also concerned about
noise and increasing traffic.
He asked if the board had
given any thought to dis-
couraging jets, perhaps by
increasing landing fees.
"Our fees are so low,
they take taxis from VMA to
Tampa because it's so ex-
pensive up there. VMA is a
sweet little cash cow. How do
we make this more commu-
nity-oriented, but not as a
revenue generator?" asked
Vaughn.
Encouraged
Not everyone spoke
against expanded operations
atVMA.
Nokomis resident Bob
Higgins said, "You have a
gift here." He encouraged the


airport board to view the
airport as an opportunity
Higgins is encouraged by
industrial park plans and
asked the board to consider
contracting with commercial
companies like UPS and Fed
Ex as a delivery point to
help maximize its intended
use as an airport.
Venice pilot and develop-
er Peter Voghel asked the
board to consider buffer
zones surrounding the air-
port.
Bandy said corporate de-
livery companies tend to
require larger facilities, and
shared his experience at
other airports with purchas-
ing and demolishing resi-
dences to create airport
buffer zones. They are ex-
ceedingly expensive, he
said.
Responding to numerous
requests, Hollowell asked
MEA Group to schedule addi-
tional public meetings.
Future master plan meet-
ings are set for March 8 and
April 12.

County installs red-light cameras
at two intersections
Sarasota County soon will begin using cameras at two intersections
to collect data on motorists who run red lights.
Red-light-cameras for a three-month pilot program were installed
this month at the eastbound intersection of 17th Street at
N. Lockwood Ridge Road in Sarasota, and at the southbound
. intersection of Jacaranda Boulevard and Commercial Court/
Executive Drive in Venice. The county expects the cameras to be fully
operational by Jan. 20. A motorist who runs a red light during the test
period will receive a letter about the violation-from the county, but no
citation or fine.
Photo enforcement of red-light citations is not legal in .Florida. The
purpose of the pilot program is to collect data on the number of red-
light runners to support a new bill-House Bill 259-that would give
local municipalities the right to enforce red-light laws with cameras.
The bill also is referred to as the Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act,
named after a Sarasota County man who was killed at an intersection
in 2003 by a driver who ran a red light.
Last September, Sarasota County's Board of County Commission-
ers issued a resolution urging other Florida counties and municipali-
ties to join them "in creating a Green Light for Red Light Camera
Enforcement Coalition to demonstrate local governments' strong
support for the enactment of legislation authorizing the use of red-
light cameras at signalized intersections."
Don Galloway, manager of Sarasota County's Traffic Engineering
and Operations Division, said the two intersections were selected
based on traffic volumes, crash records, absence of utility and
driveway conflicts, and ease of camera installation. No signs will be
posted at the intersections to alert motorists of the cameras. The
owner of the vehicle captured on camera will be mailed a photo-
graphic copy of the violation with a letter encouraging the driver to
observe traffic-light laws. The letter includes the time, date and
intersection of the violation.
Peek Traffic of Palmetto installed the test cameras at no cost to the
county. The company began installing test cameras, which cost
about $50,000 each, in Florida this year.
For more information about the red-light cameras pilot program,
contact the Sarasota County Call Center at (941) 861-5000 and ask
for the Traffic Engineering and Operations Division.

DUIs are down, and so are tra


The legal challenge to the Intoxilizer breathalizer
has cut the number of DUIs down sharply, helping
send MCC's Traffic Safety Institute into the red.


GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Traffic DUIs are down
sharply, according to Allan
Rogers, administrator of
Manatee Community Col-
lege's Traffic School Institute,
and so are -the institute's
finances.
Rogers recently told the
MCC Board of Trustees, in a
written report,, it is possibly
due to the challenges of
breath alcohol tests and the
device that is used in the test-
ing procedure.
TSI's balance sheet on the
whole is currently operating a
small deficit, Rogers said.
TSI's $960,000 budget is cur-
rently $11,251 in the red.
DUIs account for 85 per-
cent of the institute's rev-
enues, with driver improve-
ment courses accounting for
another 10 percent, and its
special supervision program
providing another 5 percent.

"The numbers (of DUIs)
are down in the 12th Judicial
District (composed of Sara-
sota, Desoto and Manatee
counties)," said Pat McCabe,
with TSI. "Compared with the
previous fiscal year, revenues
generated by DUIs are down
6 percent. The number of
DUIs is down 8 percent."
Last year TSI enrolled 718
in traffic school. This year,
only 663 enrolled.
Because there is some de-
bate about the legitimacy of
breath tests, McCabe said, at-
torneys are holding their
clients at bay by seeking con-
tinuances, allowing them to
keep the cases from entering
the court system until a ruling
is, made. There could be as
many as 150 to 200 DUI cases
that might otherwise have
started through the court sys-
tem, he said.
Law enforcement .repre-
sentatives also said part of the
DUI decline had to do with

fewer checkpoints scheduled
for New Year's eve because of
a history of very low inci-
dents. The advent of the AAA
"Free Tow" program may
have also contributed to
fewer DUI arrests.
Unlicensed
But that isn't stopping
some violators from going to
traffic school.
McCabe said some people
are signing up for traffic
school even before their case
gets to court so they can show
proof they enrolled in DUI
school, required to legally
obtain a temporary license to
drive to and from work. He
suspects others are out there
driving illegally. i
"That's exactly what they
are doing. I'm sure any num-
ber are driving on a suspend-
ed license," McCabe said.
"We are anticipating Ihe
number of DUIs will go up
once the Intoxilizer issue is
settled. I have no reason to
believe they are arresting
fewer people than last year,"
McCabe said. |
In addition to fewer en-
roll es in DUI school, TSI is


tapping its fund balance to
get it through the current fis-
cal year. Last year TSI's fund
balance was at $310,000. It's
now at $240,000.
Rogers said the hit on the
reserve fund was due to three
office moves over the past
two years. Those moves are
now completed
TSI moved into the MCC
Lakewood Ranch office,
moved its Sarasota office
from U.S. 41 near Sarasota
Square Mall down to Main
Street Plaza, and more recent-
ly moved operations within
the MCC Venice campus due
to renovations.
Operation Gotcha
Rogers also told MCC
trustees there is a movement
in Clearwater to file a bill that
would require pink auto li-
cense plates for DUI drivers
with restricted licenses. This
would allow law enforcement
to quickly identify past DUI
drivers.
He also updated trustees
on attempts to create a sepa-
rate DUI Court. Several 12th
Circuit judges have met to
discuss the creation of a sepa-

VASI pushes private security


The Airport Advisory Board OK'd a new security
plan this week, but VASI has other ideas
on how'to police airport grounds, including
realigning city and airport budgets to make
room for in-house security and Web cams.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Under a cloak of secrecy,
the Airport Advisory Board
adopted a new security plan
'this week. The plan was
reviewed by select members
of the board, airport manag-
er, city manager and police
chief. It goes next to Venice
City Council for approval.
The plan was not made
public for security reasons.
But that didn't stop Venice
Aviation Society Inc. from get-
ting in its 2 cents.
VASI President Nick Car-
lucci presented a list of pro-
posed changes designed to
enhance ;airport security.
None wasi adopted by the
r advisory board at its Wed-
nesday meeting, but that was
expected. A more appropri-
ate forum to address VASI's
L recommendations is during
the budget process, he said.
VASI is calling for a budget
review. It wants to redesign the
entire security plan by reexam-
ining the city budget. The goal:
free jup monies for in-house
security patrols and purchas-
ing high-tech Web cams to
help monitor airport access.

Prior to Sept. 11, VMA hired
a private security guard who
could be seen at night check-
ing the fence line and other'
areas of the airport, he said.
This service cost $65,000 per
year but was terminated due
to budget pressures and .the
events of Sept. 11, according
to Carlucci.
Following Sept. 11, Venice
City Council directed the po-
lice department to establish a
presence at VMA and the
waterworks. Police are no
longer at the waterworks, said
Carlucci, but continue, to
guard the gate atVMA at a cost
of $130,000 per year to the air-
port.
"Over the past four years
approximately $500,000 has
not been available for airport
maintenance. Police are not
present on a 24/7 basis. They
do not have a list of persons
authorized to enter the air-
port, or the ability to monitor
aviation radio transmissions."

Carlucci knows VASI's rec-
ommendations face an up-
hill battle.
"Once something goes

ficult to realign and make a

really 'business as usual.'
Unless you use zero-based
budgeting, the usual process
is to take last year's budget
and add or subtract from it.
"We are asking the city
and the airport board to
review the entire budget
process with an eye toward
making another judgment
on airport fund transfers. We
believe it will provide more
control for the airport, more
accountability and more flex-
ibility by moving toward pri-
vate security."

Survey says: Expect more here full time


We came across an interesting survey
this week that suggests the face of
Florida's retirement population is
changing.
Even skeptics would have to admit, after
reading through the study, that as more baby
boomers retire, they likely will be living here
year-round, or certainly longer than the aver-
age snowbird. That means more stress on our
roads and water sources.
The survey was taken by the Community
Association Leadership Lobby, an advocacy
group established in 2003 by Florida-based
law firm Becker and Poliakoff, to advance the
shared interests in the state's common-own-
ership community associations. The online


Is it really



planning?


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

If every piece of land that
comes up for review before
'the Venice Planning Commis-
, sion gets approvd, does that
mean that we have good
planning? Probably not.
The problem is that we are
a growing city with little or no
planning. We have public
planning meetings and we
have lots of people very inter-
ested in quality of life, but
hardly any real planning.
The planning commission
is not really the planning
body, although I think the
members would like to be
more involved in that. It does
'not offer suggestions about
how growth should be ac-
complished, but rather looks
at requests, usually for annex-
ation and rezoning, to make
sure they meet the law and fit
the surroundings.
City council is approving
annexation after annexation
when we really need to have
some plan for the area those
annexations are in.
This last weekend I had a
chance to visit The Villages,
which is a very unique plan-
ned community north of
Leesburg. It is a planner's
dream.
Take hundreds, if not thou-
sands of acres and make
something special out of it.
That is what this developer
has done with the Villages.
This community is shaped
around a city center, a very
special, well-thought-out
core. It has a community
square where live music is
played seven nights a week.
There are plastic chairs and
people can come and listen
and enjoy.
They have on-street park-
ing but behind the stores on
the square there is a lot more
parking. The businesses look
much like the Disney's down-
town, or Main Street USA. It
reminds you of New England
or the Midwest a lot.
Among the stores on the
square is a movie theater like
the Orpheum of my youth,
with the movie board on the
front of the theater. On two
comers of the square they sell
drinks so you have something
to enjoy with the music. And
the stores are open at night -
what a novel concept. They
have lots of name-brand
stores and restaurants.
Our community has a neat
downtown center with many


survey was taken Oct. 1-Nov. 30, with 1,299
(about 73 percent) of those queried respond-
ing.
Most of the questions centered on home-
owners associations and how they should be
run.
They asked residents if they normally
participated in meetings and what was
important to them. Not surprisingly,
insurance was the No. 1 concern of those
who responded.
But what we found more interesting is the
changing face of those homeowner and
condo association members.
Only about 25 percent of those who were
contacted fit the "snowbird" category. Three-


of these amenities. But we
have not planned for the
growth.
At The Villages there is not
one of these planned com-
munity centers but two, as
the city has grown and need-
ed more area to concentrate
shopping and dining. That
has taken some burden off.
the parking and infrastruc-
ture of the original center.
What is happening in
Venice is that we have the
growth but not the planning.
We have no new city center to
handle the growth to, the
.riorthtand east.We have no
connectivity between small
parcel developments, just
one after the other of dead-
end small housing areas.
I am proud that the Sara-
sota County commission call-
ed a moratorium on develop-
ingEastVenice Avenue so that
it could put in place some
plan that might make it all
make sense, make it flow
together, rather than be a
bunch of small, unconnected
developments. I doubt six
months is enough time to
form that policy, but it might
make everyone focus on it.
The 2050 Plan has at-
tempted to force some plan-
ning, to develop small villages
much like I described. The
Villages planning is very nice
and something, we should
learn from.

wants to extend unemploy-
ment benefits. I'd prefer
that the Senate qualified for
unemployment benefits.

Venice lost a neat guy, Al
Jones, this last week. Al had
been a long time Kiwanian
involved with the Expo and
was one of the forces behind
bringing the Vietnam Mem-
orial to Venice about eight
years ago. He enjoyed life, his
Ohio State Buckeyes and con-
vening people, usually
around food.

The South County YMCA
is having a health fair today
from noon to 4. Lots of free
health checks.

The Gulf Coast Commun-
ity Foundation of Venice
brought Thomas Friedman to
the Chelsea Center in Sara-
sota Thursday. Friedman is a
very accomplished journalist
and author on a variety of
subjects, but how the world is
changing is his specialty. He
was a strong speaker.
He had a compelling mes-
sage that he told the overflow
crowd at the Chelsea Center
in Sarasota: Every single job is

quarters of them live in Florida at least seven
months of the year, and two-thirds live here
full-time, 10-12 months year.
The percentage of those working full-time
jumped from 22.6 percent in 2004 to 27 per-
cent in 2005, while those who work at home
at least a few hours per week is up from 21.6
percent to 31 percent in that same time
frame.
The statistic we liked best was that a good
majority of those questioned, 68.5 percent,
get most of their community information
from their local newspaper. Next, at 51 per-
cent, was people who said they get informa-
tion online.
The survey was taken statewide with 41


percent of its responders from the Key West,
Miami, Fort Lauderdale area. The next best
response came from the Sarasota, Fort
Myers, Charlotte County area, with 26 per-
cent.
This survey is not comprehensive enough
to push the panic button. But we believe it
strongly suggests what we will all be faced
with in five to 10 years: More people are retir-
ing at an earlier age, and more of them
choose to move to Florida and live there
most of the year.
Those trends should be enough to get the
attention of state water districts, planners
and governments who are already struggling
with growth issues.


LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Venice Housing Authority just needs to be patient


Editor:
As a homeowner on Venice island, and with 20-plus years of
experience developing affordable housing,'I have followed
with great interest the story of Grove Terrace.
In fact this started when I toured Grove Terrace back in 2003
with VHA Chair Richard Appell. Having participated in the
financing and development of more than 4,000 units of tax
credit housing in the Upper Midwest, my associate and I are
well aware of all the related issues.
My recommendation is a simple one: Hang in there; it's
always a rough ride. There is no more difficult type of develop-
ment than tax credit affordable housing. We are just now in-
ground after five years' work on 46 units of PHA replacement
housing in Minnesota.
Venice needs affordable housing and workforce housing. In
our meeting of 2003, we found Mr. Appell to be sincerely com-
mitted, and he has shown his durability. The site is excellent
and appropriate for this housing.
My reading of the information suggests that Mr. Lopez has
halted operational decay and arranged for subsequent profes-
sional and committed work by Piceme Development and
Packard Consulting to finish the job.
I have confidence in Mr. Appell and this combination to
succeed eventually. It may not happen this round of tax
credits, it may take more perseverance than you could ever
imagine.
This is truly a process of compromise and tenacity. Hang in
there; prove that it can be done in Venice, and be proud of it.

Affordable
retirement
is at risk
Editor:
A Florida way of life is dis-
appearing.
For years retirees have
chosen to go to Florida to live
in "tin cans in the sun".
(mobile home parks, to the
unitiated). Much to our sur-
prise, my husband and I have
gone this route for 13 winters.
Instead of feeling confined
and crowded, we have
enjoyed the camaraderie of
this six-month winter life in
Venice. However, I fear this
type of affordable retirement
living is near its end: Jan. 13
we received a notice of non-
renewal from our insurance
company.
Hurricanes have created


havoc for insurance compa-
nies. Developers are eying the
well-located acreage of many
"trailer" parks and seek to
purchase them for condos or
homes.
I doubt there's an alternate
solution. It's just "progress."
But I see my husband tender-
ly caring for his large gardenia
bush and giving away his
prize Meyer lemons, and I
appreciate the winters we've
had here. I hope there are
more.
I'll remember these years
lovingly. And good wishes to
those about to retire. I wish
you good luck in finding an
affordable way of life in your
retirement.

Let's check out
the first 400 feet
Editor:
Fisherman's Wharf is once
again asking the board of
county commissioners to add
276 feet to the floating con-
crete docks currently under
construction near the North
Bridge in Venice. This is 10
feet less than the last time a
request for such a hearing on,
the same project was submit-
ted.
Ten feet is hardly a sub-
stantial change meriting
another look by the board. In
addition, the 400 feet current-
ly being built is an untried
entity. There are serious ques-
tions as to how it will impact
traffic flow on the water, and
what effect it will have on the
surrounding home owners in
regard to pollution, noise,
lights, odors and loss of priva-
cy.
The board of county com-
missioners should not hear
this request for an even larger
dock until the impact of the
first 400 feet is tested and the
above questions are answer-
ed. And, we have not even
mentioned the potential
damage from such a huge
structure in a residential area
as a result of a major storm.

State just looking
for revenue
Editor:
My husband and I are
glaziers. I am a third-genera-
tion glazier. My husband has
been in the business for more
than 20 years.
The statewide license
structure needs revamping -
badly. The state has chosen to
require people dedicated to
the art of glass and its safety
within the home to know how


to build a 27-story curtain
wall of glass, a far cry from the
common table top or tub
enclosure or handicap-bath
access.
The first negative for the
state is that you cannot regu-
late or collect revenue from a
specialized application such
as shower enclosure installa-
tion when in most counties it
does not require a license.
Now, small companies like us
simply pay a "kick-back per-
centage" of a job to use some-
one else's license not
enforceable or checkable for
the homeowner, or taxable.
I personally would like to
see it split up by a glass pro-
fessional to applications that
actually exist in the world we
live in. We also do not get
credit with the government
for work performed well and
cannot compete for govern-
ment jobs. With this structur-
ing it has created an "under-
ground licensing structure."
Unlike electricians,
plumbers and engineers, no
degree or formal education is
available. So we have on-the-
job training with glass and
mirror to employees who risk
literally their lives every day.

had hoped he might hit home
more on the huge gap in
math and science education
that has grown between us
and places like China and
India. That is one reason Dr.
Gary Norris wants an extra
half hour of instruction for
our schools, which I applaud.
(I am not in favor of the $4

for training that equals one

It was unfortunate the
foundation could not hold
this within its own territory. It
continues to have major
events in Sarasota, outside its
defined service area. It is not
clear to me that the large
sums required to bring him
here are part of the mission of
the funds that paid for it.
It also was said Friedman
would not be interviewed.

Speaking of foundations,
the Education Foundation of
Sarasota County has asked
booster clubs and nonprofits
to contribute $100 to help
hurricane-ravaged schools in
Louisiana.
It just is wrong to ask non-
profits trying to raise money
to fund their own programs to
send it somewhere else. It,
would not be wrong to ask


people to contribute, even to
ask the boosters to ask their
members if they would like to,
but not to ask the 501(c)(3)
organizations to take their
funds and send them else-
where.

The ordinance was passed

maybe they can now say,
oops, guess I can see what

Do not miss the Art Fest,
which ends today at the air-
port. Put on by the Venice-
Nokomis Rotary Club, it is
their major fundraiser for the
year. More than 150 artisans
show their talent off.
You can also buy a duck,
which really is a chance to
win a lot of prizes in the Duck
Pluck. All the proceeds go to
youth programs in the com-
munity.

Thanks to the Millers,
Georgia and Mike, for con-
tributing a new sound system
for Venice High School's foot-
ball/soccer stadium. Once
again they step in to help a
needy cause.

I was at an event at the
Venice Little Theatre the
other day and the president of
the VLT Board, Nancy
Hoover, gave out some inter-
esting statistics about our
theater.
Last year 80,000 people
saw performances there. It is
the fifth-largest, community
theater in the country and
largest per capital.
It also is the most honored
theater in Florida since 1998.1 I
am unsure how one can com-
pute that, but it's impressive
nonetheless.

a despicable campaign to de-

Slander, fraud, bribery, in-

stands as a party of lost souls,
floundering aimlessly, rud-

Firewise landscaping reduces wildfire risk


STAFF REPORT '


Creating a landscape that
will make a home less vulner-
able to wildfire is the key to
reducing fire risk. By using
Firewise landscaping, a
homeowner can create a
defensible space around a
home that reduces the risk
of fire spreading quickly.
Here are a few tips to
reduce the threat of wildfire:
Encircle the home with
well-irrigated areas at least


30 feet on all sides, provid-
ing space for fire equipment
in the event of an emer-
gency. Plants should be lim-
ited to carefully spaced, fire-,
resistant tree and shrub
species.
Remove highly flamma-
ble vegetation around the
home.
Take out the "ladder
fuels," the vegetation that
links grass and tree tops.
These fuels can carry fire from
the vegetation to a structure

or from a structure to veget-
ation.
Keep trees and shrubs
pruned. Prune all trees up to
6 to 10 feet from the ground.
Mow the lawn regularly.
Dispose of cuttings and
debris promptly, according
to local regulations.
Keep a well-maintained
irrigation system.
Landscape with less-
flammable plants such as
dogwood, redbud, sycamore,
magnolia, oaks, red maple,


Florida soapberry, wild olive
and black cherry. Check with
local nurseries and lands-
caping stores for other rec-
ommendations.
Keeping the home sur-
roundings lean, clean and
green may make the differ-
ence if confronted by a wild-
fire.

keeping a Firewise surround-
ing, call the Sarasota County

defeat

BY NATE COWAN
CORRESPONDENT

Friday night the Lady,
Indians girls basketballers
decorated the Teepee with
posters and pictures to honor
their lone senior Marisa
Callaghan.
They decorated their cars,
designed T-shirts, and her
classmates stood in line to
spell out her name. That's
where the party ended for
Venice, as -it fell to the
Manatee Lady Hurricanes 43-
34 in the last home contest of
the season.
It was the fifth straight loss
for Venice
(10-12).

Turnovers,
a short
bench due
to injuries
theyy
dressed
only eight
players), '
and the
dominant Worthington
play of
Manatee's 6-foot, 1-inch for-
ward Hayley Harvey doomed
the Indians.
Harvey recorded a double-
double with 18 points and 10
rebounds as well as altering
and blocking numerous shot
attempts. The Lady Hurri-
canes also forced Venice into
25 turnovers with their dQ-
fensive pressure. ,,
"Its all fundamentals," said
Coach George Stritz after the
game.
Junior point guard Jamie
Lane buried a trey to start the
scoring and the Lady Indians
used coach Stritz's full-court
press to take a 10-9 lead in the
first quarter.
However, the Lady Canes
opened the second quarter
with five straight points and
never relinquished the lead in
taking a 19-17 advantage into
the locker room.
The third quarter saw
Manatee open its lead, as the
Indians became their own
worst enemy by turning the
ball over and missing free
throws while their opponents
made theirs.
Harvey and her taller team-
mates began to flex their mus-
cles under the basket, getting
easy lay-ups from offensive
rebounds. The Indians show-
ed some life with Lane scoring
at the buzzer on a pass from
sophomore forward Kim
Pinkerton to cut the Manatee
lead to eight 30-22.
Manatee opened the last
stanza going to their bread
and butter of Harvey and
using their distinct size advan-
tage and clutch free throw
shooting to extend its lead to
11, but kudos to the Lady
Indians for not giving up. They
began to press, scramble and
claw their way back getting to
within six after a trey and a
free throw by junior forward
Samantha Worthington.
Manatee held on and made
three of its last four free
throws to clinch it.
Worthington led Venice
with 10 points and also pull-
ed down five rebounds.
Sophomore Chloe West
played tough defense on
Harvey taking two charges
while grabbing six boards of
her own. Sophomore Diana
Mehserle stuffed the stat
sheet with five rebounds,
four assists, and three steals
to go with her two points off
the bench.
Stritz said later about his


young team that played five
sophomores along with two
juniors and a senior "We
weren't ready tonight, but
when districts come we will
be."

get'r done


Fourth straight victory a struggle at Manatee.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The sign of a good basket-
ball team is winning when
you're having an off night.
Venice High certainly did-
n't bring its A game to the
Manatee High gym Friday
night, but the Indians perse-
vered, 62-56.
It was the Indians fourth
straight victory, their 10th out
of their last 14 games and
their third over the
Hurricanes this season.
Venice creeps over the .500
mark at 11-10.
"Playing a team three
times is hard," Indian mentor
Steve Cavallaro said. "It wasn't
our sharpest game of the year.
We did enough to get over the
hump. Give the kids credit,
they battled."
Forward Kalen Lyons and
guard George Stritz shared
scoring honors with 17 points
apiece. Forward Billy
Mehserle sparkplugged off
the bench for 12 points.
Center Ilya Vasilevskiy
chipped in with nine points.
From the get-go, one could
tell it wasn't going to be as
easy as Thursday night's
blowout of DeSoto.
Venice fell into an 11-0
hole in the earlygoing. The
Indians dug their way out by
halftime, but Manatee hung
around until the end.
Poor free throw shooting
was Venice's biggest problem.
A good effort at the stripe
could have made things easy.
Instead, the Indians strug-
gled, sinking only 25 of 46
attempts.
Venice closed to 16-11 after
one quarter as Lyons hit a
three-pointer with two sec-
onds left. Mehserle had an
offensive board and putback


of a missed free throw to give
the Indians their first lead of
the game at 29-27 with 1:10
remaining before halftime.
Venice started slowly in the
third quarter, scoring just one
point over the first four min-
utes. Then the Indians caught
fire and threatened to build a
double-digit lead, but
Manatee wouldn't go away.
Charlie I King's three-point
play with 33 seconds left
made it 42-35, but the lead
was just five by period's end.
Stritz. popped over
Manatee's zone fbr a three
early in the fourth quarter to
put the visitors up 47-41. The
Hurricanes got, as close as
four. points in the final
moments, but Venice had just
enough to stay on top,
Venice's final four games of
the regular season are home.
It starts Tuesday night with
Bayshore coming to town.
Friday night, Lakewood
Ranch invades the Teepee.

Teen beats odds with 300 game,


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

One of the last things on
16-year-old Mat Baker's mind
on Friday the 13th had to be
bowling a 300 game.
And the odds were certain-
ly stacked against him.
The Venice High sopho-
more carries an average of
147 his previous high
game this season was a 178.
Throw in the fact that
Baker hadn't bowled in a
month the Friday Night
Scramblers League he rolls in
at AMF Venice Lanes had two
weeks off for the holidays,
plus he was out of action the
following two weeks after hav-
ing an ingrown toenail
removed.
Baker was anxious to get
-back on the lanes that Friday
night. He was bummed that
two of his "Not Yet" team-
mates would not be there -
his father George and
Godfather Joe Kurecki had
gone to see the Tampa Bay
Lightning play the Columbus
Blue Jackets.
That left Baker and Pam
Perin rolling for the
Scramblers that night.
"I was excited," Baker
recalled. "I had three Cokes
before I got there, so I was
ready to go."
Baker's hook started hit-
ting the sweet spot early and
often. Through six frames, he
still wasn't thinking about the
big one, however.
"I've had five and six
strikes in a row before," he
,said.
It wasn't until Baker made
it through the eighth frame
when images of "el perfect"
started dancing in his head.
"Word travels fast around a
bowling alley someone has a
chance at a 300," said
Kurecki. "More and more
people come over to watch.
By the 10th frame, the whole
alley is watching."
"I turned around and saw
all these people," Baker said.
"Everybody was crowding
around."
Somehow, he was able to
keep his composure.
"I got a little lucky in the

10th frame," he said. "I got a
strike on the opposite side,
but there was good pin
action."
Baker hit the pocket the
final two throws, and he was
in the books with a 300.
"I started calling every-
body I knew," he said.
Since it came in a sanc-
tioned league, Baker has all
sorts of goodies lined up. A
ring and plaques and coming
his way, compliments of the
United States Bowling
Congress.
Although teens have rolled
300 games before at AMF
Venice Lanes, it is not a com-
mon occurance according to
manager Mike Wilczewski.
"We had an 18-year-old
bowl a 300 in the youth league
Sunday in Sarasota," he said.
Baker excelled in youth
leagues before moving up to
roll with adults. He once
rolled a 253 in a state tourna-
ment in Fort Lauderdale.


Although exuberant, Baker
kept his perspective.
"I dedicate the 300 to my
grandfather, who just died,"
he said of George Sr.

Aggressive tow companies invite new law


Sarasota County didn't realize it could regulate
tow truck rates on private calls. It will overhaul
local towing rules to discourage predatory towing.


argued that all forms of pay-
ment cash, checks and


credit cards should be
allowed, rather than a "cash
only" restriction.
In 1999, the commission
adopted a bare bones ordi-
nance that regulated calls
from sheriff's deputies for
emergency towing, and es-


tablished a rotation system
that provided an equal share
of the business for participat-
ing companies.
The ordinance expired last
June and was extended on an
emergency basis for one year.
When complaints about


"predatory towing" were
raised at the Dec. 6 hearing,
the commission requested a
review of their rights to regu-
late the industry under state
law.
Most of the predatory tow-
ing complaints involve two


local towing operators who
compete for calls from Siesta
Village store owners along the
east side of Ocean Boulevard
with limited parking. Their
behavior has upset nearby
owners who don't want to
scare off business.


An unregulated local in-
dustry ,that preys on visitors
will come under the thumb of
Sarasota County when tow
truck drivers are forced to
charge a flat rate of $125 for
removing unauthorized cars
from private parking spaces.
On lan. 25, the county
commission is expected to
rein in operators who charge
up to $200 and sometimes
more for hauling cars only
a few blocks, and then releas-
ing them back to owners who
can Afford to cough up cash
rather than pay later.
New rules drafted by the
county will also force individ-
uals who own private parking
spaces to adequately post
them so unsuspecting visitors
are not caught unawares, and
return from shopping to find
their vehicles gone.
On Jan. 11, the commis-
sion agreed to advertise an
entirely new towing ordi-
nance that sets rates and
establishes regulations for all
towing, and not just emer-
gency calls that go out when
sheriff's deputies need avehi-
Ie removed.
The complete overhaul of
wing rules resulted from a
ec. 6 hearing at which re-
Ports about the practices of
-some locals was reported, and
,ae discovery by county offi-
ials that they have the auth-
Ority to regulate what is de-
Icribed as "noniconsensual
fowing."
4 When Budget Manager Jeff
reward informed the com-
mnissioners that the Florida
law governing towing was
change.din 2u2 to W fr,,,,,
local regulation of privatser-
vice calls, it caught them flat-
footed and raised questions.
"We've had a towing ordi-
iance that did not cover the
spectrum of this situa-
tion?" commissioner Jon
Thaxton asked.
'- "I find it interestingthatwe
didn't know about this, and
only now come to find out
about it three or four years
later."
Good as cash
Commissioner Nora
Patterson suggested that
aggressive
tow truck dri-
vers should
have to back
off if a vehicle
ownerreturns
while they are
still in the
process of Patterson
hooking them
up. Nobody disagreed.
And after a give-and-take

Coastal counties struggle with access demands


New Florida residents want to frequent popular
beaches and launch their boats. Their demands
require new public park sites and ramps where
land is scarce.


JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

When more than a dozen
Florida coastal counties met
in Melbourne last year to dis-
cuss their manatee protection
plans, the group's focus shift-
ed to other matters such as
the high cost of providing
public access to waterways
and beaches in an over-heat-
ed real estate market.
Sarasota County officials
apparently came away with a
different perspective than
most of the others and, as a
result, will attempt to cut a
separate deal with the Florida
Legislature that includes a
state contribution toward the
public purchase of valuable
coastal parcels.
On Jan. 10, the county
commission agreed to discuss
a resolution drafted by the
resources protection staff,
rather than one produced for
the 14-member group,j and
pursue it through local legis-
lators when state lawmakers
gather this spring in Talla-
hassee.
The proposed county reso-
lution places an emphasis on
state assistance for affordable
public access to state waters,
and conspicuously omits a
registration program pro-
posed by the group for ca-
noes, kayaks and rowboats
that would allegedly help
facilitate federal grants.
The resolution has been
gathering dust since a Nov. 28
report was circulated about
the group's meetings, and res-
urrected for consideration by
commissioner Jon Thaxton at
a Jan. 10 meeting.
"I'm ready to act on this,"
he said, and the other com-
mission members unani-
mously agreed.
"From what I understand,
the meetings started out with
a lot of mana-
tee bashing
and ended
with a resolu-
tion I couldn't
endorse,"
Thaxton said.
"The provi-
sion for regis- Thaxton
tearing canoes
and kayaks
was a matter of these counties
looking at ways to generate
more money."
According to Thaxton, ca-
noes and kayaks are among
"the last vestiges" of recre-
ational items that aren't taxed
by the state, and they put vir-
tually no strain on communi-
ties to provide public facilities
because unlike power
boats they can be launched
almost anywhere.
Counties that jointly par-
ticipated in meetings held
July 29 and Aug. 29 included
Brevard, Broward, Citrus,
Collier, Duval, Indian River,
Lee, Martin, Miami-Dade,
Monroe, Palm, St. Lucie,
Sarasota and Volusia. Missing
were Charlotte and Manatee.
Tension
What all the coastal coun-
ties have in common is an
obligation to protect West
Indian manatees, which share
the shallow coastal waters of
the southeastern United
States with powerboats. Man-
atee deaths and injuries pose
unresolved problems for state
authorities.
Conservationists have
pushed for more slow-speed
zones to protect manatees,
while powerboat enthusiasts
want fewer regulations that
restrict their ability to navi-
gate at high speeds across
open waters. Both groups
routinely lobby state lawmak-
ers and marine authorities.
Manatees generally spend
most of their time in the
Upper St. Johns River, north-
west peninsular Florida,
along the Atlantic Coast and
in southwest Florida's coastal
waters. The coastal counties
are required to have manatee
protection plans. Some have
done a better job than others.


What the all the counties
- including Sarasota -
agreed on were legislative


proposals to: 1) change the
Florida Boating Improvement
Program to allow waterfront
land purchases; and 2)
increase gas tax revenue for
boating improvements.
When Sarasota County
passed up numerous chances
in the 1970s and '80s to buy


APP4iUxr





y &More


beachfront and waterfront
parcels for public access pur-
poses, private investors
moved in and gobbled up
most of them for develop-
ment. The trend drove up
coastal land values.
Last year, after the county
muffed a chance to purchase


side-by-side Phillippi Creek
marinas for public boat
launching facilities for about
$8 million, it hastily agreed to
spend twice that much for a
10.9 acre parcel along the
Intracoastal Waterway near
Little Sarasota Bay.
The county's scramble to


buy expensive coastal prop-
erties for public access facili-:
ties to the Gulf of Mexico,.
Sarasota Bay and other sur-,
face waters is typical of what
is transpiring in other high-:
growth coastal communities,-
and the reason for its pursuit
of state financial help.

One in more

than a

million

Close to 600 people attend-
ed the fabulous Paul Todd
concert at Our Lady of
Lourdes Church thanks to
Charles and Kathy Hall. The
couple heard Paul perform
and hired him on the spot for
a fundraiser for the church.
Because of Paul's reputation,
it was easy to convince Father
Sheehy, pastor of the church,
the decision was a good one.
Traveling with the musi-
cian was his father Richard
Lagergren, who lives in Min-
nesota. He said Paul won his
first Yamaha Organ competi-
tion when he was just 14 years
old. At. that time experts told
the father his son had the kind
of talent that comes along in
one out of more than a mil-
lion.
Richard is a retired Hall of
Fame high school football
coach and teacher in Brain-
erd, Minn. The proud dad
enjoyed just hanging out with
his son for a few weeks.
A generous gift
Members of the Marge Le-
hman family recently attend-
ed a reception at the Venice
Art Center and were acknowl-
edged for their generous con-
tribution to the center. Art
center board member Walter
Yovaish introduced Dr. Ed-
ward and his wife Suzanne'
Kuff along with Karen Kuff,
Marge's great niece.
The group presented the
gift as requested by Marge Le-
hman in her will.
Around town
You can never predict who
you'll see inVenice. At a recent
Rotary/Sertoma meeting Eric
Ah-Yuen sat among the
guests. This young man is
training in Bradenton as the
Tae Kwan Do World Champ-
ion. He was in Venice promot-
ing his sport.
Famous astrologer Joseph
Polansky who wrote several
"Your Personal Horoscope"
books published by Harper
Collins sat at my table. He lit
the menorah candles for our
group.
Hugs to our dear Polish
friend andVenice's first lady of
charm and glamour, Vee
Gary-Chiulli. This special
lady is having a little down
time recovering from surgery.
A rising star
Janet Weis beams when
she talks about her grand-
daughter Erin Firestine. This
multi-talented high school
senior who lives in Tucson,
Ariz., has written a play for
children called, "Champions
of Magic." The show is sched-
uled to open in a few weeks.
Erin is also directing the
show and is grateful for the
wonderful support her family,
friends and special teacher
are giving her. She will be vis-
iting Venice in June.
Pat on the back
Everyone associated with
our Venice High School State
Champion Volleyball team
gets a lot of richly deserved
praise. One of the unsung he-
roes of the group is Jay Lan-
ham. This terrific coach
teaches at Heron Creek
School in North Port.
He volunteers his time
with the volleyball team so he
can contribute and be part of
this wonderful organization.


A literacy celebration will
bring two critically acclaimed
authors to Venice High
School.
Funded by a $20,000 grant
from the Venice Endowment
Fund at the Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice in partnership with
Venice High School, the pro-
gram will bring two best-
selling authors to the school
this week for classroom and
community presentations.
Planned and developed
collaboratively by VHS teach-
ers and dozens of students,
the celebration is designed to
foster a culture of literacy at
the school. The 2006 Literacy
Celebration will feature ac-
claimed South African writer
Mark Mathabane and best-
selling author and Pulitzer
Prize-winning journalist Rick
Bragg.


Bragg's "I Am a Soldier, Too"
tells the Jessica Lynch story.
Against all odds
According to Mathabane's
official biography, he touched
the hearts of millions with his
sensational autobiography,
"Kaffir Boy," which relates the
story of Mathabane's coming
of age under apartheid in
South Africa.
The book won a presti-
gious Christopher Award.
Since 1949 Christophers have
been given to acknowledge
the role of the media in dis-
pensing knowledge and to
encourage people to pursue
excellence in creative arenas
that have the potential to
influence a mass audience
positively. The award was
established by Marvknoll
priest Father James Keller.
The book rose to the number-


three spot on the New Xork
Times Bestseller List and to
Number One on the list main-
tained by the Washington
Post. It was translated into
several languages.
Today, the book is used in
classrooms across the United
States and is on the American
Library Association's List of
"Outstanding Books for the
College-Bound."
Born of destitute parents
whose $10-a-week wage
could not pay the rent for
their shack or put food on the
table, Mathabane spent the
first 18 years of his life as the
eldest of seven children in a 1-
square-mile ghetto that was
home to more than 200,000
blacks.
The poverty there was dev-
astating. Regular police raids
and relentless humiliation
drove Mathabane to the brink
of suicide when he was just
10.
Literacy saved him.
Encouraged by his mother,
who believed that education
was the only way out of the
ghetto, he also was inspired
by the success of the late ten-
nis star Arthur Ashe.
The courage and sacrifice
of MNathabane's mother liter-
ally turned his life around.
Mathabane did what no
physically and psychological-
ly battered "Kaffir" from. the
mean streets of Alexandra
was supposed to do he
escaped to tell about it. The
term "kaffir" is used in south-
ern Africa as a disparaging
term for a black. A "kaffir
Islam" refers to an infidel.
Tennis was Mathabaie's.
,passport to freedom.
In 1978, width the help of
1972 Wimbledon champion
Stan Smith, Mathabane left
,South Africa to attend an
American university on a ten-
nis scholarship. When he lost
the athletic scholarship,
Smith continued to support
him. In -1983 Mathabane
graduated cum laude with a
degree in economics from
Dowling College in Oakdale,
N.Y., where he was the first
black editor of the college
newspaper.
After studies at the Poynter
Media Institute and the
Columbia Graduate School of
Journalism, Mathabane com-
pleted the manuscript of
"Kaffir Boy" and went on to
write several more books. His
provocative articles have
appeared in The New York
Times, Newsday, U.S. News &
World Report and USA Today.

In September 1997, Mark
completed a one-year assign-
merit as aWhite House Fellow
at the Department of Edu-
cation in Washington, D.C.,
where he helped implement
several education initiatives.
Mathabane served .as a

children and his extended
family in North Carolina.
Bragging rights
Author of the best seller
"All Over but the' Shoutin',"
Pulitzer Prize-winning New
York Times national corre-
spondent said in his biogra-
phy that he learned story-
telling by listening to the mas-
ters, the people of the,
foothills of the. Appalachias.
That is where he grew up,
deep in the hollows of north-
eastern Alabama.
In the evening, night after
night, stories were told on
front porches as jugs were
passed from hand to hand.
Bragg listened as they talked
of the sadness, the poverty,
cruelty, kindness, hope,
hopefulness, faith, anger and
joy of their everyday lives.
While listening, he learned.
Those stories became the
backbone of his third book,
'Ava's Man," the story of a
whiskey man, poacher, roofer


and folk legend, who was his
mother's father and the
grandfather he never met.
"Shoutin'" is the story of an
abused wife who shortened
her life working in the cotton
fields in order to provide a liv-
ing for her three sons. Bragg
said the book became an
anthem for the working peo-
ple and the poor people of
today's South.
Before joining the New
York Times in 1994, Bragg
worked at several newspa-
pers, covered murder and
unrest in Haiti as a metro
reporter there, wrote about
the Oklahoma bombing, the
Jonesboro killings, the Susan
Smith trial and more as a
national correspondent bas-
ed in Atlanta. No sooner had
be become Miami Bureau
Chief for the Times, than
Elian. Gonzalez arrived in the
U.S. and the international
battle for the little boy began.
Bragg has won the Amer-
ican Society. of Newspaper
Editors Distinguished Writing
Award twice, plus more than 50
other writing awards during his
career. In 1992, he won a
Nieman Fellowship at Harvard
University. He has taught writ-
ing in colleges and in news-
paper, newsrooms. His college
education was spent at
Jacksonville State University in
Alabama in the 70s. He was
there for "just six months."
"Somebody Told Me" is a
collection of his newspaper
stories. '
He earned the Pulitzer
Prize for feature writing about
contemporary America. The
stories were about people
such as the country sheriff
who caught Susan Smith, a
Mississippi washerwoman
who became a national hero,


about places like an Alabama
prison where old inmates go
to die and about such occur-
rences as the bombing of the
federal building in Oklahoma
City.
The writer is single and has
said that he is inclined to stay
that way. He lives in a shotgun
double house in Uptown New
Orleans, and likes to fish
when he has the time.

Newly listed Plantation home has famous view


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Hole 15 of the Plantation
Golf & Country Club's Panther
course is known far and wide.
Located on an island in a
rather large lake, the hole has
been challenging golfers for
years. What better place for a
golfer to live than within sight
of that hole, the better to
study it for future rounds.
Today's home story fea-
tures a house with one of the
very best views of that famous
hole. Even nongolfers should
appreciate this view, which
begins with the blue-tile
edged swimming pool,
expands outwardly to the lake


and then to the blue skies
beyond.
The house itself, listed with
Michael Saunders Realtor
Caren Weinberger, is a three-
bedroom split plan with a
spectacular Florida room
overlooking the lake and
green. Located within
Governor's Green, the house
is well back into the commu-
nity, where there is virtually
no traffic.
Originally built as a model
home for Lincoln Homes, the
2,742-square-foot house has
many upgrades, including a
tiled kitchen accented with
decorative hand-painted
tiles. Decorative ceiling fans,
window treatments, featuring


Tommy Bahama fabrics and
hurricane shutters, are other
upgrades or decorative treat-
ments that are part of the
package.
That spectacular view can
be enjoyed from the master
bedroom, living room, lanai
.and Florida room. The pool
deck patio area measures a
generous 26-feet by 40-feet.
Bedrooms range in size
from 12 feet by 14 feet to the
master bedroom's 14-foot by
20-foot size. That room offers
space for a king-size bed as
well as a seating area.
Solar panels provide heat
to the inground pool.
Listed, for $649,900, the
house can be seen at an open,


house 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Jan.
22, or at other times by ap-
pointment. During the hours
of the open house, potential
buyers will need to key in the
numbers 0122 to enter the
gated community of Govern-
or's Green.
The home is located at 626
Khyber Lane. From the en-
trance, drive straight back in-
to the community and then
turn left at Khyber Lane.
Follow the road around to the
left. The house will be near
the'end of the road, on the
right.
For more information or to
see the house at another time,
call Weinberger at 223-6752
or Pat Davids at 716-2300.


A closeup view of the front elevation shows the curbed
landscape beds and professional landscape design.

Happy New Year! We wish

State Park is offering many
ways to accomplish that. Pro-
viding a natural setting as a
backdrop to a picnic, party or

family and friends together.
Our programs are another
way to enjoy company, nature

"BLOODSTREAM OF THE TEETH"
SIn 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.
U 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
healthy, saliva brings minerals to tne 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
your dentist on a regular basis.

Audubon Society. The con-
cern over environmental is-
sues surrounding the discov-
ery of the loss of birds due to
weakened eggs caused by the
use of the pesticide, DDT. In
" consultation with the Sara-
sota chapter, the suggestion


was made to form a local
Audubon chapter. In Novem-
ber 1965, the Venice Audubon
Society chapter was officially
sanctioned by the National
Audubon Society.
The word "'Area" was added
later to incorporate the com-
munities of Venice, Nokomis,
Osprey and North Port as the
areas served by the society.
The VAAS mission is "to pro-
mote interest in wildlife and
foster the cause of conserva-
tion with emphasis on birds
and their habitat."

STAFF REPORT

WCI Communities' Vene-
tian Golf and River Club has
won an Aurora Award for
green construction at the
2Q05 Southeastern Builders
Conference during the 27th
annual awards ceremony. The
all "green" community won
the production model award
for the Rosa model home.
WCI Vice President and
Venetian Project Manager
Steve Walker accepted the
award on behalf of WCI.
"It is an honor to receive
this award, and it is an excel-
lent recognition for the WCI
employees who worked hard
to build an all green commu-
nity," Walker said. "WCI has
made environmental sustain-
ability a top priority, and this
community is a model of that
commitment. This award
should also remind us of the
health benefits, cost savings
and environmental enhance-
ments associated with living
green."
Venetian's Rosa model was
judged on the aesthetic ap-
peal and use of green building
materials featured both in
and outside the home. Other
judging criteria were interior
features including appli-


ance upgrades target mar-
ket, and overall function of
the floor plan.
The Rosa model home is
part of the courtyard series
released at the Venetian. This
model is a 1,690 square foot,
two bedroom, two bath floor
plan. The Rosa is one model
available at the Venetian Golf
and River Club, which was
developed-using green build-
ing principles, certified by
Audubon International and
The Florida Green Builders
Coalition. Additionally, the
community houses Casa
Verde, Florida's greenest
home and an Audubon Inter-
national gold signature golf
course.
About 60 percent of Vene-
. tian is dedicated to conserva-
tion areas, wetlands, lakes
and the golf course. The
championship golf course,
designed- by architect Chip
Powell, is an Audubon
International Gold Signature

Preserve protection advances


STAFF REPORT


Sarasota County and The
Nature' Conservancy have
partnered to protect a 21-acre
parcel of bayfront property
that serves as habitat for the
Florida scrub-jay, gopher tor-
toise and other rare species.
The land will be purchased by
the county through its
Environmentally Sensitive
Lands Protection Program.
The new site adds to the
existing 185-acre Lemon Bay
Preserve, which includes a


mix of pristine scrub, pine
flatwood, mangrove swamp
and tidal marsh habitats.
To help fulfill the goals of
the Charlotte Harbor Estuary
Program, Sarasota County
will add property to a network
of county-owned sites that
help protect Lemon Bay and
Charlotte Harbor. To date,
Sarasota County has spent
approximately $53 million of
local funds to protect almost
16,500 acres within the
Environmentally Sensitive
Lands Protection Program.

The beauty of thalassotherapy


SFC offers heart wellness program


STAFF REPORT


For centuries the Dead Sea
in Israel has provided beauti-
fying and therapeutic effects
on the skin. Cleopatra, con-
sidered the most beautiful
woman in the world, went to
great expense to obtain ex-
clusive rights over the Dead
Sea area. She then built
pharmaceutical and cosmetic
factories near the Dead Sea.
You can still see their remains
at Ein Bokek and Ein Gedi in
Israel today.
Today saunas often use
Dead Sea salts to evaporate
bromides thus creating an
environment similar to the
Dead Sea. Having a hot bath
with Dead Sea salts and
allowing the steam to collect
in the bathroom will have a
similar-effect. Specialist often
recommend this for respira-
tory conditions including
asthma.
Pure Dead Sea salts differ
from regular sea salt in two
very important ways. Num-
ber one, Dead Sea salts con-
tain 10 times more minerals.
Secondly, Dead Seas salts are
very dry.and absorb essential
oils with ease, which enables
them to be released into bath
water and other beauty prod-
ucts. Dead Sea salts also assist
in the cleansing, detoxifying
and restoration of healthy
skin.
The Japanese company
Nikken has dedicated a line
of its products to thalas-
sotherapy called Thalassokea


ANGELA BIRDSONG
GUEST COLUMNIST

Thalassotherapy is the
ancient practice of using the
ocean's gifts to renew and
restore both body and soul.
Today, spas all over the world
are rediscovering this tech-
nique and are using it for
skin renewal treatments, cel-
lulite and joint problems.
Thalassa is the Greek word
for sea. Even doctors recom-
mend that soaking in water
with sea salts and seaweed is
an excellent way to maintain
good health. This philosophy
is based on the principle that
elements found in saltwater
and marine plants are similar
to the chemical make-up of
human plasma. Plasma al-
lows us to absorb and assim-
ilate minerals and nutrients,
such as potassium, calcium,
and iodine. The nutrients
found in seaweed are in
greater concentrations than
those found in land plants.
Hippocrates, the Greek
father of medicine, was one
of the first to discover the
therapeutic virtues of seawa-
ter by observing the benefi-
cial effects it had on the
injured hands of fishermen.
He also noticed that the sea-
water restricted infections
-and helped-in pain relief.
SIIff'6hotels "and-spas' use a'
combination of seawater,
algae and mud, to maximize
the benefit that the human
body derives from marine
products. Thalassotherapy
has many more beneficial
effects, including relaxation,
stress management, muscle
and skin restoration, even
weight control.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


.24: ~


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist


Q. Do I need two hearing
aids?
A. There are lots of advantages
associated with binaural (two
ear) listening. Localization
(knowing where the sound
came from) is only possible
with -two ears. Localization of
sound is a major safety issue.
Think about how important it is
to know where warning and
safety sounds such as sirens,
honking horns and alarms are
coming from. Using two ears
also impacts how well we hear
in noise. We need to have two
ears to selectively attend to' a
desired signal and to
selectively ignore the
surrounding noise. Simply
stated, if you have two ears
with hearing loss, and if both
ears could benefit from hearing
aids, you need two hearing
aids. To understand how
important binaural hearing is
call the Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. at 492-
4327 to schedule a hearing
demonstration.
Jacaranda Office Park
4120 Woodmere Park Blvd.
Suite 8A
(across from Jacaranda
Public Library)


allowing clients to have the
spa experience at home. The
Thalassokea line uses the
combination of Dead Sea
salts, hydroamine and sea-
weed to reduce the appear-
ance of fine lines and wrin-
kles, while moisturizing the
skin. The hydroamine formu-
la is made with chitosan
microflake. Chitosan is from
chitsin, the natural material
that forms the shell of the red
crab. Chitosan is used be-
cause it is structurally similar
to the amino acids ahd pro-
teins that our skin is made of.
The application is done by
using face patches under the
eyes, neck or the entire face.
Specially created for the sen-
sitive skin around the eyes,
the hydroamine eye patch
also includes ginseng and
ginkgo biloba extracts. The
patches are designed for easy
application and removal.
The skin is the largest
organ of, the human body,
forming a protective covering
from the harmful effects of
the sun's rays and pollution.
In addition the skin enables
the body to store or hold in its
body fluids and provides the
elasticity required for every
movement we perform. Since
this vital organ carries out so
many important functions we
need to respect it by provid-
ing good cleansing, replen-
ishing fluids and electrolytes.
So consider thalassotherapy,
your skin is worth it.

My StoryCorps experience


= VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST 0 COl NST

Every one of us has an
I interesting story to tell. My
t friend, Maria, knows this and
believes that Americans living
in this relatively young coun-
try do not value oral histories
as much as people of other,
<. more established lands. Ma-
'. ria, a career anthropologist,
t has been fortunate to have
worked all over the world and
( to have lived in places such as
3 Sierra Leone, Bermuda and
I; Japan. When National Public
. Radio (NPR) announced it
was coming to Sarasota with
t its StoryCorps project to
record personal histories, she
asked if she could interview
me. Listening to oral histories
is a hobby of hers.


Lunch is served at noon at
Senior Friendship Centers,
2350 Scenic Drive, Venice,
584-0090 or 584-0031. Reser-
vations required 24 hours in
advance.
Suggested donation: $3. All
meals served with bread and
milk.
Monday, Jan. 23: Breaded
pork cutlet with white pepper
sauce, wild rice blend, coun-
try blend, veggies, Mixetd-it
cup .
Frozen alternative. Italian
spaghetti with meat sauce,
chopped spinach, cut green


Why me? Well she knew I
had some radical views on
modern broadcast and print
media. I guess, she thought it
was interesting that a 92-year-
old lady who cannot see to
read or write could have a
weekly column in two news-
papers that some people
actually read. Maria focused
on the aspects of my life that
unconsciously led me to jour-
nalism, such as writing a little
poetry booklet in the second
grade and working on the
high school newspaper.
She really zeroed in on my
experience in journalism in
college. At that time, Indiana
University had one of the
finest print journalism de-
partments in the country. We
put out a morning paper with
everything from international
to college news. One of my
professors was Dr. J. Wymond
French. He filled the role as
the tough night editor and he
taught me an unforgettable
lesson.
Dr. French's wife was presi-
dent of the American Asso-
ciation of University Women.
One night he asked me to
cover their banquet in a near-
by town. I came home, wrote


beans
Tuesday, Jan. 24: Linguini
with meat sauce, garlic spin-
ach, pea cheese salad, warm
spiced pear dessert
Frozen alternative: Sliced
turkey with turkey gravy,
whipped sweet potato, green
peas with onions
Wednesday, Jan. 25: Veg-
etable soup, chicken breast
coqaui, garlic mashed po-
S(atoe',green alls, resh
banana
Frozen alternative: Veal
parmesan with tomato sauce,
carrot and broccoli medley,


the story, and about 11 p.m.
turned in the glowing ac-
count of the speaker and the
table decorations. I was pretty
proud of it! He read my beau-
tiful story and tore it to shreds
and threw it into the waste
basket. "Now," he said, "go
home and write a story." I had
mistakenly used a few adjec-
tives and he sternly lectured
me that if I told what the
speaker said, the reader
would know it was inspiring,
and that if I described the
decorations the attendees

seems, to have evolved over

BACKING OFF
If your car were backfiring, which would you do first replace the spark plugs or overhaul the engine? The point
is that, when a problem occurs, it makes sense to address it with less invasive tactics before proceeding to more
extraordinary measures. So it is with back pain. Before committing yourself. to back surgery, which is only
necessary in small percentage of cases, consider less invasive modes of treatment. Even pain from a herniated disc,
the most frequent cause of persistent discomfort, resolves spontaneously in 90 percent or so of cases. For acute
pain, try applying cold compresses for the first few days. If pain persists, seek the advice of a chiropractor, who
can provide non-invasive treatment.
If you suffer from low back pain, talk to your doctor of chiropractic about what treatments may work best for you.
Study after study confirms the success of chiropractic care for many types of spine-related complaints. Millions of
chiropractic patients benefit from our drug-free approach to healing. Our experience and expertise in safe and
gentle chiropractic care will help you enjoy life to the fullest. Are you suffering discomforts! Call TWIN PALMS
CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER,, at 941-412-3800 to schedule an appointment and let us help you. We're
located at 1214-C Venice Ave. East, where we're currently accepting new patients. We offer massage therapy and
have 2 licensed massage therapists on staff.
P.S. There are a number of age-related problems that reduce space in the spine so that nerves become pinched.











If you or someone you know are aged 45 to 90 and have
mild memory loss, a local medical facility is taking part in
a national clinical research study to evaluate the safety
and effectiveness of an oral, investigational medication
for mild cognitive impairment. Qualified participants will
receive complete study-related physical exams, lab work,
electrocardiograms and cognitive evaluations at no
charge while taking part in this study. If you or someone
you know is otherwise healthy but having evidence of
memory loss, call today to find out about this study for
mild cognitive impairment.

Americans were a scarce



commodity in Bangkok and Bali



in November and December


Part IV of a series on Bangkok and Bali


EDITOR'S NOTE: In Part III, the
Cools celebrated Thanksgiving at
the Ritz-Carlton Bali.

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

We celebrated Thanks-
giving at the Ritz-Carlton in
Bali by eating duck and nasi
goreng instead of turkey and
sweet potatoes.
Little did we know at the
time that we would see no
more Americans during our
remaining eight days in Bali.
Because Americans show up
everywhere, often outnum-,
bering the natives, we gave it
little thought as we settled
into the Ritz-Carlton's van for
our ride to Amed, a dive and
snorkeling center on the east
coast of Bali, about three
hours on the other side of sev-
eral mountains from Jim-
baran on the southwest coast
of my favorite island.
My thoughts were focused
on Batubulan, where I intend-
ed to buy two stone carvings
to carry carefully home to my
Florida garden. My camera
was focused on the sites along
the way, including the site of
the Oct. 5 terrorist bombing
in Jimbaran, which we passed
shortly after the hotel.
After being safely co-
cooned in the well-guarded
lush tropical oasis that is the
Ritz-Carlton Bali, the bomb-
I ig. shIe nirw the middle of.
?I Jtfinbaron's usually' busy
tourist area was in sharp con-
trast. The incident had oc-
curred nearly two months
earlier and all that remained
as a grim reminder was a
chain-link fence around part
of the area.
Balinese people are a
cheerful and peace-loving lot.
Heidi and I had seen that on
an earlier trip when we wit-
nessed bonfires in the streets
following the election of
Wahid over Megawati Sukar-
no. The Balinese were unhap-
py with the election so they
disrupted traffic from the air-
port and in downtown Den-
passar, the major city of Bali.
The next day, Sukamo had
been named vice president
(she later succeeded Wahid),
the Balinese were content
with that and every bit of the
disturbance debris had been

swept away, leaving the
streets neat and tidy once
again.
Today, after two bombings,
which caused Bali's tourist-
based economy to plummet,
the Balinese still manage to'
smile and to carry on with
their work. We passed several
road projects and saw many
new buildings being built -
some would be new homes
(mostly for expatriates from
other countries) and some
would be new hotels or re-,
sorts.

Kilometers northeast of Den-

of their positive outlook.
Stonecarvers were hard at
work, creating hundreds of

Mammoth works such as a
Balinese variation of a horse-
drawn chariot might end up
in the center of one of the
many traffic circles found in
the major towns. We had
passed one such work on our.
way to Batubulan, wondering
aloud how it was moved into
position, given its size and the
delicacy of some parts of the
carving, which included the
reins held by the chariot's dri-
ver.
Detail is the trademark of
nearly all the art in Bali,
whether it is the silver and

wheeliee" and then put that
into a large duffel bag pur-
chased in Bali. The statue had
been carefully wrapped at the
shop and I added clothing
around it within my luggage
and then cushioned the lug-
gage with pillows I had pur-
chased in Bangkok.
The second statue, also
carefully wrapped at the
shop, went into a large tote
bag, which I carried over my
shoulder for the 45-hour trek
from Bali to Tampa. Both
pieces arrived in perfect con-
dition.
Batubulan also is the home
of the famous Barong dance
troupes that perform several
times a week at 9:30 a.m. We
had seen those dancers on an
earlier trip and highly recom-
mend this outing for first-
time visitors to Bali.
Also nearby, though not
directly on the road, we were


taking to Amed, is Celuk, the
silver and gold center of Bali.
There you can find very intri-
cately patterned jewelry
made of those metals as well
as items such as sailing ships
made from fine strands of sil-
ver or gold.
Ubud, where we have
stayed on two other trips to
Bali, is north of this area, and
has become the arts center of
Bali.
Not wanting to depart
from the Ritz-Carlton any
earlier than we had to, we
wanted only to buy our stat-
ues and then arrive at Amed
by the middle of the after-
noon.

In part five, the Cools wile
away the hours in Amed
before heading to the
Sheraton Laguna Nusa Dua
for the last three days of their
Balinese idyll.

JUNE CASAGRANDE
. i


' The American Dialect So-
ciety recently announced its
word of the year: "truthiness."
For those of you who don't
spend your days glued to any
of the myriad cable channels
that cover the exciting world
of professional wordsmith-
ing, the American Dialect
Society is a group that has
crowned itself an authority
for sanctioning a word of the
year.
This year, "truthiness" is
their pick.
'Truthiness' refers to the
quality of preferring concepts
or facts one wishes to be true,
rather than concepts or facts-
known to be true," the society
reports on its Web site.
Meanings of this word, the
group reports, "date as far
back as 1824."
Fun stuff, if truthy, but is it?
My "Webster's New World
College Dictionary" is having
none of it. My second college
edition "American Heritage
Dictionary" won't play ball.
Not even my honldkin' huge
"Oxford Universal Diction-
ary" gives "truthiness" any
ink. The closest this un-
abridged volume comes is to
mention the shorter truthhy"
which it says is rare dialect.
Ironically, this empty space
where the word "truthiness"
should be immediately fol-
lows an entry for a word


Oxford does deem inkworthy:
trustinesss."
Is the American Dialect
Society lying? Not likely. I'm
sure that the "meanings" they
found dating back to 1824 do
include documented cases of
the word "truthiness" appear-
ing in print. And this, ladies
and gentlemen, is how lan-
guage evolves, how wrong
becomes right, how mistakes
and deliberate misuses be-
come official words: Some
self-appointed authority puts
them in ink.
This is how "nauseous"
came to mean the same thing
as "nauseated." It's how
"healthy" came to have the
same meaning as "healthful."
And it's how "whom" became
officially optional in all but
the most formal speech and
writing.
So if everyone else can
invent rules and words, I can,
too. Thus, I would like to
announce a new word I just
made up: "report." This new
word I just made up is spelled
like "report," pronounced like
"rapport," and describes the
congenial manner in which I
"report" back to readers who
e-mail me their questions.
And with that, here's
today's Casagrande Report,
prompted by Deane Bottorf
of Corona del Mar:
Dean writes: 'He drove
the car and he accidentally
ran her over.' This expression
keeps appearing and bugging
me. It just sounds wrong and
I don't know why. It should be
'... he accidentally ran over
her.' Doesn't 'over' modify the
very'ran'?"
Here is what I "report"
(remember, the final T is
silent) back to Deane:
"Run over" is a transitive
verb that appears in the dic-
tionary. So the question is,
can you split official two-


word verbs any way you like?
Can you just stick the object
pronoun right in the middle
of the verb? Not really, no. The
object of any verb should
come immediately after it
(the whole, unbroken, two-
word verb). So Deane was
right to suspect that, "He ran
over her," is the best way to
sayit.
But this doesn't mean, it's,
wrong to say, "He ran her
over."
One ofWebster's many def-
initions of "run" not "run
over" but "run" is: "to drive,
force or thrust (an object) in-
to, through or against some-
thing." According to this defi-
nition, driving over her with a
car could correctly be phras-
ed as, "He accidentally ran
her." No "over" is required as
part of the verb. Of course,
you would still want to throw
in an "over" for good mea-
sure, using it as a preposition
instead of part of a formally
accepted two-word verb. In
other words, if you can "put
her up" on a pedestal, in the
same way, you can "run her
over" with your car.
As we see over and over
again, the good news here is
that English gives us a lot of
elbow room. Some .of the
most questionable choices
can't be proved "wrong." As
long as we have a basic grasp
of elementary English and a
sincere desire to follow the
rules, we need not fear our
word choices are wrong. We
need only fear someone will
prove that our facts are less
than truthy.

advertisers in both broadcast
and print media. I was asked
what advice I might give to
young media writers. I sug-
gested that they often need to
use discretion in their gather-
ing and reporting of the facts.
There was more to this
impressive session, including
how I write my column
beginning with the idea until
it goes to press. As a closing,
Maria read two of my poems.

The tour will last about 10


years and expects to record
about 250,000 histories for
the National Archives at the

given a CD of the recording,
which I will pass on to my

The week before the

GRACE JOYCE
PET COLUMNIST


The new year is a time to
be thankful for what we have,
share what we have to give,
and to remember those less
fortunate around us. This
year, I hope you will join us at
St. Francis Animal Rescue by
taking time to celebrate the
animals in your life and
remembering those less for-
tunate animals who will not
be able to enjoy the holiday
season in a loving home.
There are many ways to
show your support for these


animals. From helping at a
local animal shelter to offer-
ing assistance to national
organizations, each and every
one of us has the ability to
make a difference in the lives
of less fortunate animals.
Here are just a few ways you
can help:
Volunteer your time
Why not start off the new
year by taking a few hours of
your time and sharing your
love with the animals. Most
organizations need volun-
teers in all capacities, long-
term and short-term, from
working directly with the ani-
mals on a regular basis to
taking photos once a year at a
fundraising event.
Make a donation
Donations come in every
size and shape. Monetary
donations are a great way to
show your support and there
are many ways to give. Like
purchasing tickets to annual
events, corporate sponsor-
ships, buying raffle tickets for
special items, or donating
cans to an aluminum can


recycling effort.
Adopting a
homeless animal
Opening your heart and
home to an abandoned ani-
mal helps tremendously, but
we all know that adopting a
new pet is a very important
decision that may not be right
for everyone. The good news
is there are other ways to help
the animals with shorter-
term arrangements. These
can include becoming a fos-
ter family or adopting an
older, special needs feline.
No matter how your
choose to help, it's important
to remember that whatever
you can do today- will make
a huge difference for all the
animals tomorrow!

Animal Rescue president and

personal health problems. She has been with children and other animals, but she isn't
too fond of cats. Babe is house-trained and crate-trained. She knows sit, stay and down,
and will walk well on a leash. Please come by and meet this great gal. Can you give Babe

What cat owners need to know


about feline leukemia


MONICA LEIGHTON
PET COLUMNIST


I have heard so many pet
owners ask, "Does my cat
really need the feline leu-
kemia vaccine?" The answer
is yes. Feline leukemia-infect-
ed cats are found worldwide
and the virus adversely affects
the cat's health in many ways.
It is the most common cause
of cancer in cats. It causes
weakened immune systems
and may cause various blood
disorders. The virus is shed in


high quantities in saliva and
nasal secretions. Cats transfer
the virus by. bite wounds,
urine, feces and milk from
infected mothers, as well as
during mutual grooming and
not always but possibly by
sharing mutual litter boxes
and feeding dishes.


HAVE A PET
QUESTION?
If you have a pet-related
question or a topic that you'd
like to see discussed in
Monica's column, write to us
at dshulman@
venicegondolier.com.


Some signs your cat may
show if infected include loss
of appetite, weight loss, pale
gums, persistent diarrhea,
eye conditions, neurological
disorders, skin and bladder
infections, fever and enlarged
lymph nodes.
Which cats are at the great-


est risk of infection?- Kittens
born to infected mothers, cats
allowed outdoors, cats living
with infected cats and cats
allowed on screened lanais.
Remember, even if your
cat is strictly an indoor cat,
there are always those
mishaps involving an es-
caped cat or the stray cat in
the neighborhood thit just
won't leave and that's all
you need to open .your cat
up for the possibility of
infection.
So when getting your cat's
vaccinations, remember
that any feline has the.possi-
bility of becoming infected
and that's all I need to
know to make sure my cat is
safe.
Mohica Leighton is the
owner of Professional Pet Sit-
ting and the president and

pital for the past eight years
and is very active in the local
pet community.

'Invisible' resume a work


Having an up-to-date
resume is a must. But
there's another kind of
resume you might find
extremely useful: the "invisi-
ble" resume.
"There's a physical resume
we all work on that is our .
tangible work history, but an
invisible resume, which is just
as crucial, goes beyond
skills," said Trevor Gandy, vice
president of human resources
at Chubb Group of Insurance
Cos., based in Warren, N.J. It
has 10,000 employees
worldwide.
Gandy, a human resources .
professional since 1993, says
an invisible resume should be
a record of "all those things
that aren't on the job posting,
such as how you communi-
cate, collaborate with others,


meet deadlines and work
with various levels of man-
agemfient."
The executive, who handles
human resources for Chubb's
mid-Atlantic zone, which has
1,500 employees, also does
' hiring. And his enthusiasm
about having an invisible
resume is justified: He
invented the term.,
"Last October, I was part of
a brainstorming session we
had on career success, and I


pointed out the need for a
tangible work history the
visible resume, the executive
said. "And then I went on to
say there also is a need for a
resume that lists those things
that are not the usual skills
and accomplishments but are
just as important to your
success. I called it the invisi-
ble resume."
Gandy's resume, which is
valuable for jobseekers and
jobholders, may be "invisi-
ble," but it should, like a
standard resume, be written
down.
"Take time to jot down your
strengths that go beyond just
the baseline skills you have
accrued over the years, such
as being able to get results
through collaboration with
others," he said. "Your


invisible resume is a record of
your level of motivation, your
efforts to sustain a high
performance."
Knowing what your
strengths are even those
the hiring officer doesn't ask
about makes a difference,
Gandy says. "In a competitive
marketplace, the invisible
resume can be the determin-
ing factor in whether you get
the job or the promotion you
want."
It's up to you to mention
these skills, since standard
job applications and tradi-
tional first-job interviews
don't cover them.
And if you're angling for a
promotion, you have to
present yourself in the best
light possible by bringing up
all your attributes and

The Preserve at Bal Harbor,'
in Punta Gorda Isles, is a new
luxury, gated condominium

building and only 12 units to a
floor. There will be two
elevators in each building

covered parking and addition-
al storage space.


The buildings will have
metal roofs with plantation-
style courtyards with foun-
tains. When the buildings are
completed, the preserve at Bal
Harbor will overlook a 2,200
square foot clubhouse, with a
business center, library,
kitchen, plantation room and
exercise facility. Residents will
be able to relax on the 6,000-
square- foot sun deck by the
resort-style heated pool,


~L


which will include a barbecue
area.
Three exciting floor plans
are available. The Andros, The
Bermuda and The Captiva.
