Petting zoo promotion draws pickets


Englewood sisters protest what they called

When college students
Tiffany Pandolfi and Nicole
. Miers-Pandolfi heard about
the free petting zoo at Venice
Village Shoppes this week-
end, they had to go see it for
themselves.
What they heard from a
friend was that exotic ani-
mals were supposedly being


held in unhealthy, cramped
animal containers. What
they saw was even worse,
they said.
Top on their list of con-
cerns were the small cages.
Some of the animals didn't
appear to have water or
food, and some were left
standing for hours on end,
they said.
They filed a complaint
with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission, and were told as
long as the owners said they


periodically fed and watered
the animals, and exercised
them every 72 hours, they
were in compliance.
FWC sent an investigator
to the petting zoo on Friday
and found nothing improp-
er, according to FWC
spokesman Gary Morse.
"The case sizes are proper
for a traveling cage, and
there were no violations.
Animals were cared for
properly," Morse said.
FWC's investigator did
not inspect the horses be-
cause they're considered
domesticated animals.
"Unfortunately, it is le-

The underbelly of the bil-
lion-dollar international
child-sex trade may have sur-
faced with a recent Venice
arrest.
Milton Cleveland, 49, 5800
block Venisota Road, was
arrested and charged with
transmitting harmful materi-
al to a minor in this state by
electronic device, and use of a
computer for child exploita-
tion. He is being held on a
fugitive warrant in the Sara-
sota County Jail for Palm
Beach County, according to
Sarasota County Sheriff's Lt.
Chuck Lesaltato."
"We've been proactive in
this (catching adults who
solicit children for sex) area,"
Lesaltato said. "We had one of
our detectives posing as a 14-
year- old-girl (on the comput-
er) and already made two'
arrests.
"These suspects send ex-
plicit pictures, of themselves,
then they want to set up a
meeting place and we're wait-
ing for them."
Child sex stings
widespread
In fact, Cleveland was
caught in the child-sex sting
in Palm Beach County.
"They are doing the same
thing there that we are doing
here, lots of agencies are,"
Lesaltato said, "having detec-
tives pose as youngsters, set
up a meeting place, then wait
for them to show."
Lesaltato said PBC found
out Cleveland was living here


and asked the SCSO to assist
in executing a 'warrant and:
confiscating Cleveland's com-
puter.
Even with .
all of the re-
cent publicity
in newspa-
pers and on
national TV
about solicit-
ing children
for sex, adults
keep falling Cleveland
into the trap.
"Who knows why these
guys keep trying to meet
these teenage girls to have
sex," Lesaltato. "I guess they
just think they can get away
with it even though they
know law enforcement is
involved."
Lesaltato could not say
how pervasive the child-sex
solicitations are in Sarasota
County.
More hidden dangers
He said adults who prey on
teenagers also may wind up
taking pornographic photos
of them to post on Web sites
or distribute in other ways.
Lesaltato said parents
must become more aware of
what their children are up ,to
on the Internet.
"This is why parents ought
to make sure the computer is
located in an area where the
parents can see what their
kids are doing on the Internet,
see what Web sites, what chat
rooms they are visiting,"
Lesaltato said. 'And, talk tp
your kids about it, let them

Sarasota County is not in
the business of painting
bridges. It keeps them operat-
ing.
Appearance issues are a
city's concern.
That was the decision by
county commissioners and
administration this week on
the idea of powerwashing
and placing a stucco paint job
on Venice Avenue Bridge,
dubbed the "Dirty Bridge" by
Venice Planning Commission,
member Jim Myers because
of its appearance.
The county is willing to
split the cost 50-50 on the ini-
tial paint job ($167,000 total),
and then evenly split future
costs .to maintain the finish.
Painting the bridge is
above and beyond the coun-
ty's duties, said commissioner
Jon Thaxton, and it will not
happen without the city com-
mitting to half the costs -
now and into the future.
"We don't put pretty finish-
es on county bridges," Thax-
ton said. "We're a county. We
don't do that."
The bridge is just another
item on the list of grievances
growing between the county
and city. Many city officials
are still sore Sarasota County

"We don't put pretty
finishes on county
bridges. We're a coun-
ty. We don't do that."
Jon Thaxton,
Sarasota County
commissioner

spent $3 million in 2004 to fix
up the bridge, including
$100,000 for pedestrian pass-
ing zones and another
$500,000 for stairways that
will connect to the bike trail,
but never budgeted money-to
clean up its dirty appearance.
Also this week, county
commissioners turned 180
degrees. and unanimously
approved investigating Ven-
ice's latest land annexation,
while the city has accused the
county of once again misallo-
cating road impact fee money
outside of city limits without
approval.
The level of distrust has
grown so much, City Manager
Marty Black invoked the Flor-
ida Sunshine law and made a
public records request of
Sarasota County files three
weeks ago.
Black is still waiting for
those records.


"It gives me great pause
before entering into any
agreement with the county,"
Black said.
W ho'll paint the bridge?
By a 6-0 vote, Venice City
Council approved Tuesday
paying for half the bridge's in-
itial painting cost at $83,500.
Signing a blank check for
future painting costs was a
different issue.
City Attorney Bob Ander-
son chimed in saying he has
legal concerns about the
prospect of city money pay-
ing toward county roads
maintenance.
"I am not comfortable
signing an agreement with
the county that could set us
up for incurred costs," coun-
cil member Rick Tacy said.
Thaxton defended the
idea, saying the maintenance
deal only involves aesthetic
aspects of the bridge. The
county has three other
bridges and does not paint
them.
County Administrator Jim
Ley echoed his commission-
er's comments.
"I thought the board was
pretty generous in their offer,"
Ley said.

Abandoned lot prices soar in final hours


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR


What a difference a day
makes.
Overnight, bids rolled in on
North Port lots up for auction.
When the dust settled, the
winning bids totaled
$29,219,050, with people from
21 states and two foreign
countries taking part.
"This exceeded our great-
est expectations," said Terry
Gilbert, a project manager for
Sarasota County.
I "We're very pleased with
the outcome," said Steven
Crowell, North Port city man-
ager. "It looks like a lot of peo-
ple waited to the last minute
to bid."
A scant 24 hours before the
sale closed, bids had been
placed on only about 25 per-
cent of the lots listed in the
first session of the auction. As
of Wednesday, most of the
offers were equal only to the
starting minimum price.
But overnight, bids were
placed on many more lots. By
the time the first auction ses-
sion closed Thursday, 981 of
the 1,058 lots available in the
first session appeared to have
been claimed by qualified
bidders. In all, 9,590 bids were
placed with an average of
nine bids per lot. The sale
price averaged $29,785 per
lot, roughly 20 percent more
than the minimum price.
In the end, only 77 lots
were unsold. Those lots will
be available in the second ses-
sion of the land auction.
The highest-priced lot
went for $76,250. That lot is
on Jablo Circle at the intersec-
tion of two canals. That lot
received a total of 89 bids.
Last lot
The auction was to have
closed at 4 p.m. However, one
lot continued to receive last-


minute action.
Two parties were vying for
Lot No. 1069. Although it was
scheduled to close at 3:20
p.m., the auction was extend-
ed five minutes per bid as
long as the parties kept bid-
ding. Like an old west shoot-
out, those two parties contin-
ued to battle each other
online. Lot 1069 finally closed
at 4:40 p.m. for a price of
$45,000. Lanny Campion was
the last bidder standing.
Fisher Auction Co., Inc. will
have five days to identify the
winning bidder for each of
the lots sold in the first round.
Fisher will draw up contracts,
send them to the winning
bidders by fax or express
delivery, and expect to receive
signed contracts back from
the buyers in a matter pf days.
People or companies that
wished to place bids on any
lots had to submit a certified
check for $5,000 for each lot
on which they were bidding.
If they did not win a lot, the
$5,000 was to be returned.
However, if they won but
failed to close, they would
lose the $5,000.
Fisher Auction is the com-
pany that is selling the lots on


behalf of Sarasota County and
the city. The county and city
agreed to split the profits
from the sale with 45 percent
going to the county and 55
percent to North Port.
The county expects to
spend some of its share on
affordable housing. North
Port has not announced how
its part of the windfall will be
used.
The county took over these
lots when their owners failed
to keep up with property tax
payments.
Bugs
A few bugs plagued the
close of the first round of bid-
ding. Some bidders reported
that they were unable to
access the information for
several of the lots for at least a
15- or 20-minute period.
Instead, their browser dis-
played the message that the
Web page couldn't be found.
Fisher discovered the error
and posted a notice on its
Web site extending the bid-
ding for several groups of lots.
The message stated, "At
approximately 10:15 this
morning the Internet Bidding
System Server experienced


technical difficulties. Due to
this situation we have extend-
ed Lots in the PID Areas of
1117, 1118, 1119, 1120, 1122
for a period of 20 minutes
from 11 a.m. to 11:20 a.m."
Fisher will hold another
workshop for prospective
bidders at 7 p.m., Tuesday,
Jan. 31, at the North Port
Performing Arts Center.
The next session of bid-

County buys River Road property


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Two land deals announced
and approved this week pro-
vide Sarasota County key
pieces to its large land acqui-
sition puzzle and offer links to
key community needs.
The largest of the purchas-
es was 28 acres at the south-
east corner of River Road and
East Venice Avenue.
The county bought it for
$2.8 million and has several
ideas for its use, including
placing a fire station, environ-
miental park and right of way
for the future River Road
widening.
"This is a
S. piece of prop-
erty we have
been looking
*- .. at for a long
time," County
U Administrator
Jim Ley said.
"It provides
multiple use
Ley opportuni-
ties."
Commissioner Shannon
Staub said it was a good deal
and praised county staff for
its effort in .getting the deal
done.
"I like it," Staub said.
Ley said the location is
ideal for a planned fire station
in the area.
" "It gives us one more step
toward the fire system im-
provement," he said.
The fire station would be
relocated there from the city
of North Port. The county


**^' ~ ~ /B-


would sell the existing station
on U.S. 41, in the recently
annexed portion of the city, to
the city and build the new sta-
tion to address the, shifting
county population closer to
Interstate 75.
"We have a growing need
out there," Ley said.
Keystone
The county commission-
ers also approved the pur-
chase of 1.82 acres of land on
Turtle Beach that is currently
an RV park. The deal was for
$6.25 million and links two
public portions of Turtle
Beach. It is now the third larg-
est public beach in Sarasota
County.
The property
links the
existing 11-
acre Turtle
Beach Park to
,- the south and
S 6 acres of
beachfront
property to
the north. The
Thaxton new .beach-
front will
stretch more than 2,900 feet,
county Parks Director John
McCarthy said.
Commissioner Jon Thax-,
ton liked the purchase for its
parking options.
"There is only 100 feet of
(water) frontage, but there is
an enormous capacity for
parking there," Thaxton said.
"That is what we need most at
our beaches."
Parks Director John Mc-,
Carthy said the existing RV

park has 44 lots; the plans are
to create more public parking
in the area.
Ley called the land "the
keystone in an arch."
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said she loved the idea
because of the overall benefit
to the community by expand-
ing the public beach.
"We really own the beach
there and that is becoming
harder and harder to hap-
pen," Patterson said.
It is unclear what the coun-
ty plans to do with the RV
park. Public hearings will be
held to decide the property's
fate.
McCarthy said the pur-
chase will also allow the
county to be eligible for an
additional $1 million in state
beach renourishment grants
by creating one contiguous
beach.

School tax supported by county commissioners


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
School District received sup-
port from county commis-
sioners Tuesday. for its pro-
posed extension of the extra 1
mill in property taxes in effect
since 2002.
The board was asked to
support a school district ref-
erendum to keep the 1 mill in
place another four years.
Commissioner Shannon'
Staub said she wants to show
her support for the school
district.
"We are elected to try to
represent the views of our
constituency and continuing
the millage (property tax rate)
we are already paying makes
sense," Staub said.
The referendum comes to
a vote on a March 14.
If approved, the tax exten-
sion would raise nearly $250
million during the next four
years.
The district says it needs


the money to pay for a plan to
shift the way it teaches its stu-
dents. Course work would be
more student-focused and
address the changing de-
mands on people entering
the job market.
Staub said
'}. the school
,? district has a
superinten-
dent with a
plan for the
21st century
"It will make
Si' the students
.a- really com-
Staub petitive glob-
ally," Staub
added.
A greater percentage of
jobs are going to require high-
ly technical skills in the
future.
"This is an investment in
our young people and the
future," Staub said.
She said there is a link
between better prepared stu-
dents and a chance to help
the county's economic devel-


opment and business future.
Commission Chair David
Mills also voiced his enthusi-
astic support for the continu-
ation of the tax.
"Education is expensive,"
Mills said. "The first go-
around with
this tax'
brought us a
technical high
school. The,
S, next will be
equally bene-
ficial."
To help
explain and
Mills promote the
district's tax:
continuation, School Board
Chair Gary Norris will be
speaking before the South'
County Alliance of Home-
owners meeting 9 a.m.
Thtirsday at Gulf-To-Bay mo-
bile home park.

Pineview shows off its high-tech classrooms


The school district holds a technology showcase
to show what a NeXt Generation classroom looks
like and where some of your referendum
dollars would go.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Ninth-graders at Pineview
School have a leg up on other
kids in more ways than you
might think.
Not only are they gifted,
but the entire ninth grade was
provided with laptop com-
puters this year as a pilot pro-
ject to promote technology in
the classroom the first of
its kind in Sarasota County.
It's a microcosm of what
Superintendent Gary Norris'
NeXt Generation Learning
plan would look like.
The Sarasota County
School District held a tech-
nology showcase on Wednes-
day at Pineview School, with
testimonials from teachers,
students and parents sup-
porting the pilot project. The
purpose was to demonstrate
how technology is being used
and integrated, and its
impact on student learning.
"It's a pilot program in
every sense of the word," said
Principal Steve Largo.
Largo and head ITC techie
Lyna Rui spearheaded the
program, funded in part from
a school district grant and
from the school's own budget.
Hewlett Packard provided
the computers. Pineview
hired five techies to keep the
technology running, includ-
ing two whose job is to train
teachers not only on how to
use the equipment, but to
help them blend technology
into their lesson plans.


Envision this
Norris' vision of going
high-tech looks a lot like a
Pineview classroom, with
Smart Boards linked to the
Web and ActivBoards taking
the place of chalkboards;
"Elmos" (also linked to the
Web) replacing the old over-
head projectors; and a com-
puter in the hands of every
student and teacher.
In addition to the ninth-
grade pilot program, other
classes are using mobile labs
upon request. A techie rolls
into the classroom with a cart
containing 20 or more lap-
tops .and other equipment to
use in that day's lesson. The
mobile lab is moved from
classroom to classroom
where it is needed.
Pineview even has an elec-
tive class that allows students
to follow ITC staff around
campus while they problem-
solve software glitches and
repair hardware.
More important, Norris
sees students actively engag-
ed in personalized learning.
No more sitting in the back of
the class anonymously.
Students follow class ma-
terial and instruction online.
If they lose their place, they
just click on the teacher's Web
page and link back to the les-
son in progress. Teachers can
follow student progress in
real time, noting how stu-
dents perform on tests.
"Teachers can see right on
the screen who got the right
answer and who didn't," said
fifth-grade teacher Stephanie


Gould-Olson. "This is amaz-
ing. It's very good at targeting
instruction. And it levels the
playing field for all students,
especially those with special
needs."
An added benefit, said tech
support Mark Goebel, is the
dog can't eat your homework
anymore.
The school has been
actively surveying students,
teachers and parents along
the way to find potential flaws
in the pilot. Parents said the
computers were a plus, but
weren't happy their children
had to carry laptops in addi-
tion to heavy books. The
school responded by putting
the texts online.
Teachers asked for and are
receiving more training. And
students, well, they're just
happy to be surfing and
learning.
'Thin clients'
Technology consultant
Bob Hanson has more in
store. He's been hired by the
district to help plan high-tech
infrastructure.
He planned Sarasota's
downtown wireless program.
Although wireless isn't in the
works for schools (techies say
it's just not reliable enough
for high-end use at this time),
Hanson hopes Sarasota
County schools will move
toward lighter "thin clients"
- a computer screen without
the hard drive that can be
plugged into stations in every
classroom and at home.
At roughly $250 apiece,
thin clients are a lot less
expensive than $1,100 lap-
tops, and would help do away
with expensive wiring, ac-
cording to Mike Horan, in-
structional technology super-
visor for the district. Hanson


also wants to hardwire each
floor for easier access, to
wiring.
It's too early to say whether
Pineview's computer pilot
program has improved learn-
ing for students. FCATs are
just around the comer. But
the school regularly surveys
students, teachers and par-
ents for anecdotal evidence
they're headed in the right
direction.
Mike Humke, HP director
of worldwide education, and
Lloyd Osman, HP accounting
manager, flew in from Hou-
ston headquarters for the
showcase. They said they
were impressed with what
teachers are doing and stu-
dents interaction.
"Teachers are using tech-
nology to enhance their cur-
riculum," Osman said. ...
using the heck out of it, from
what they are telling us. And
the kids are enjoying them-
selves. You can see they're
having fun, and that trans-
lates in the learning process."
"Those teachers are trying
to invent ways to use technol-
ogy," added Horan, "There
wasn't a child in the room that
wasn't engaged."
Ruiz said 90 percent of
teachers in the pilot program
want to continue. The vast
majority of students have
stated they feel these pro-
grams are enjoyable and
effective. Teachers are chang-
ing the way they teach, she
said.
Parents are getting as
much out of it as the students,
according to teacher Gould-
Olson.
"You can't go back," she
added.

ZOO from Page 1 A
Sent of Animals) has told me
the best thing I can do is to
-put pressure on the shopping
center not to hire them."
So she and her sister, along
With their mother, Theresa
;Piers-Pandolfi, and Rob and
,Rose Hipps of Englewood,
,held signs along U.S. 41 in
.,front of the shopping center
encouraging passing motor-
ists to honk in support of ani-
mal rights. Many did.
The Hippses weren't origi-
nally part of the protest, but
they joined it "to volunteer for
the animals" after seeing a
story on the zoo on ABC7, the
Gondolier Sun's media part-
ner.
"Nothing's free," Rob said.
"The animals are paying."
Tiffany said they tried to
assemble closer to the zoo's
tent but were told by law
enforcement they needed to
be on public property. After
they moved closer to the


road, she said, shopping cen-
ter personnel turned on the
irrigation system.
Venice Village Shoppes'
manager was not available for
comment.
Free country
Petting zoo owners Robert
and Pat Engesser are from
Trenton, Fla., where they have
a facility for breeding lions,
tigers and leopards. They go
on the road 10 months out of
the year to support the facility
because, Pat said, "unfortu-
nately, I'm not independently
wealthy."
Although they take their
animals all over the- country,
protests are rare, she said.
"We live in a free country,
where people have the right
to do that," she said. "I think
they're crazy, but they have
that right."
In addition to the FWCC
inspection Friday, the U.S.
Department, of Agriculture
inspected the traveling zoo


"We live in a free coun-
try, where people have
the right to do that, I
think they're crazy, but
they have that right."
Pat Engresser, pet-
ting zoo co-owner



about two weeks ago and had
no complaints, Pat said.
She has to have state
licenses and is subject to at
least two surprise U.S.D.A.
inspections a year of both the
traveling show and the breed-
ing facility, she said.
She has been in the animal
business 22 years and has
owned the traveling zoo with
her husband since the '90s,
when they took it over from
his parents.


'Embellished'
When Tiffany Googled the
Engessers, she found a list of
19 citations by the U.S.DA.
dating back to 1990 at wild-
lifepimps.com, a group asso-
ciated with People for the
Ethical Treatment of Animals.
"Engesser's traveling ex-
hibit has repeatedly failed to
meet minimal federal stan-
dards for the care of animals
used in exhibition as estab-
lished in the Animal Welfare
Act," states the Web site.
The Engessers have been
in the bullseye of PETA
before. Stories of their travel-
ing zoo are documented on
numerous PETAWeb pages.
"In addition to the inhu-
mane treatment of these ani-
mals, The Zoo also puts chil-
dren at risk," states PETA.
PETA claims that due to
the high number of con-
sumers expressing concern
over cruelty to animals and
health issues, a growing list of
corporations, including Wal-


Mart, Borders, Toys "R" Us,
and Shaw's Supermarkets,
have banned animal exhibits
from their stores.
Pat Engesser acknowl-
edged being cited for some
violations, adding that they
have always been corrected.
She said they have been
"embellished" by PETA, and
that some of them were actu-
ally suggestions put in writing
by inspectors who now only
make them verbally so ani-
mal rights' activists won't
have access to them.
She keeps a four-page
handout with specific re-
sponses to PETA's charges
handy.
A break
News coverage of the zoo
might have attracted the
Hippses, but it also generated
a lot of free publicity. Pat
Engesser said a number of
visitors told her they didn't
know the petting zoo was in
town until they saw the story


on ABC 7.
But to the protesters, that
was the idea, even if it might
put money in Engesser's
pocket.
"I think it works both
ways," said Theresa Miers-
Pandolfi. "I'm just one person
saying, give the animals a
break. If people want to come
and see for themselves, that's
a good thing."
In a sense, Pat Engesser
agrees.
"When these kids have
kids," she said, "that's proba-
bly the only way they're going
to see these things.
"I wish they could be in the
wild, but their habitat is being
destroyed. Where else are
they supposed to live but in
captivity?"

approve the initial paint job,
however, was a step in the
right direction, according to
Commissioner Shannon
Staub.
She also understands the
hesitation to sign a blank
check, and said it might be a
good idea for county staff to
provide some maintenance
estimates.
Not all bridges are created
equal, and the one inVenice is
a major gateway, Staub said.
"It sounds like the door is
at least still open for discus-
sion," Staub said.
Proper annexation'
County commissioners al-
so voted 5-0 this week to
investigate the S&J Properties
annexation along Laurel
Road.
In response to citizen com-
plaints, Sarasota County's
legal team is looking into
whether Venice is creating
enclaves and if it has followed
all applicable state laws. City.
council approved the nearly
26-acre annexation Tuesday.
The county appeared to
drop this issue a week ago,
when it determined county
staff endorsed a 2003 annexa-
tion of what's known as Villa
Lago, just west of Pinebrook
Road and north of Kilpatrick
Road.
Instead of challenging that
annexation, the county has
decided to investigate the S&J
annexation that barely touch-
esVilla Lago and no other part
of the city. County Attorney
Steve DeMarsh is expected to
have an opinion by Feb. 7.
Thaxton fears rural com-
munities like Sorrento


Ranches at one home per 5
acres bordered by Villa Lago
to the east and S&J to the
north are becoming encir-
cled by city annexations with-
out any protections.
"If you look at the North
Venice annexations, it really is
moving, along snakelike,"
Thaxton said. "We're worried
these rural areas will not be
protected.
"It may not be appropriate
for a city to do that, snake
through the area.... We didn't
mean it to be heavy handed,
offensive or aggressive. We
have these (Sorrento
Ranches) residents who are
crying out, and we don't want
to abandon them."
Records request
Venice had not received
official notice of the county's
action when a reporter con-
tacted the city manager for
comment.
Black was still waiting for
an official response on his
three-'week-old public
records request, an extremely


unusual occurrence between
neighboring governmental
bodies. No person inter-
viewed could think of another
time in which this has hap-
pened,
Among Black's major con-
cerns is how nonchalantly the
county appears to be tossing
out threats of legal action.
Venice has some experience
on outside investigations,
after pleading guilty and pay-
ing large fines in 2004-05 for
environmental violations at
its utility plant.
The city manager doesn't
sense a spirit of cooperation,
and is suspicious of county
staff's motives.
"The issues of concern are
expanding," Black said. "We
don't seem to be making
progress on any of these
items. It just seems to be get-
ting more antagonistic."
County staff is working on
assembling materials for
Black's public records
request.
Ley emphasized the coun-
ty is "under no obligation" to

matter of public record.
Black doesn't think he's the
only city manager having
these types of issues with
Sarasota County, and has pro-
posed a summit that includes
the city managers of Sarasota,
North Port, Longboat Key and
Venice meeting with the
county administrator and a
third-party moderator.
Sarasota City Manager
Mike McNees said he would
participate if such an event is
organized, but many of his
problems are worked out over
breakfast. McNees said he
and the county's other top
managers meet for breakfast
once a month with Ley.
Black hasn't been there for
more than a year because he
thought the meetings had
stopped, he said.
"We take a little bit of a dif-
ferent position on (city-coun-
ty issues)," McNees said. "We
are trying to work together. All
these things are about money.
We try not to pepper (the
county) with requests."
The heart of the situation' "


does appear to be money. In
Black's latest memo to the
county, he questions spend-
ing city road impact fees on
county roads.
Venice agreed to pay 47
percent of the $2.6 million
Pinebrook Road extension
project to Center Road that's
outside of city limits, and the
county would cover the other
53 percent.
But in the latest cost pro-
jections, Venice's share of the
total project has jumped by
$585,000 to cover 65 percent
of the total cost and the coun-
ty's portion decreased by
$315,461 to only cover 35 per-
cent of the cost.
Black asks the county to fix
this unapproved spending of
city impact fee money, and
return the project to an even
50-50 split.
"I don't know why they did
it," Black said. "I guess they're
just not used to the city
watching them that closely."

County to host local cycling event
as part of national 'Tour de Cure'
Sarasota County Parks and Recreation will join the fight against
diabetes by sponsoring the local Tour de Cure, the American
Diabetes Association's annual cycling event. Proceeds from various
Tour de Cure events around the nation raise money for research to
find a cure for diabetes, the nation's fifth leading cause of death by
disease.
"We're proud to be a part of this momentous national event. Our
contribution to the Tour de Cure will help provide needed revenue for
research, public information and support programs that are essential
to all people with diabetes," said Jonathan Poyner, a program
coordinator with Sarasota County Parks and Recreation.
At 8 a.m;, Sunday, Feb. 26, the 20K, 50K and 100K races will start at
the north entrance to Myakka State Park. The routes will be on back
roads in the areas around the park and beyond. About 250 cyclists
are expected to ride in this one-day event.
The goal of Tour de Cure in Sarasota County is to raise $75,000 to
support research for a cure for diabetes, which affects more than 1
million Floridians each year. Sarasota cyclists will join an estimated
26,000 other riders and volunteers who will participate in Tour de
Cure events at more than 80 sites throughout the United States this
year.
The American Diabetes Association launched Tour de Cure in
1991 to help raise money and awareness of the 20.8 million Ameri-
cans who suffer from the disease. The American Diabetes Associa-
tion is the nation's leading voluntary health organization supporting
diabetes research, information and advocacy. Founded in 1940, the
Association has offices in every region of the country, providing
services to more than 800 communities.
For general information about the local event, contact the Sarasota
County Call Center at (941) 861-5000 and ask about the Tour de
Cure. To volunteer to help with the Sarasota County Tour de Cure,
contact Jonathan Poyner at (941) 232-3415. To register to ride in the,
Tour de Cure event, pick up a registration form, available at Sarasota
County libraries, parks and other locations throughout the county

n. ways to divert money from
one program to another.
If that can be accom-
a polished, construction of
, seven new and extended
water lines in the two com-
9' munities can proceed at a
cost to residents more in
line with the original esti-
mates proposed last April.
e1 "I will suggest alternate
ye sources of funds so that we
can buy down the eventual
-r costs to residents of Nokomis
Ye and Laurel," said Thaxton. "It
is the only way that some res-
idents will be able to afford to
connect to the central water
bi system."
h. Just last week, more than
a $200,000. was .moved from
b. Community Development
Block Grant funds destined
for other projects to the
Nokomis and Laurel water
projects. But Thaxton said, at
almoQ s eljnti federaJ'
funm g.pGDB Grants, was
reduced.
"Just when we thought we
K had found an additional
I source, we've been frustrated
by the feds," he lamented.
"lThere will, now be less
money available from them
for the water projects in the
two communities. It makes all
the more imperative our
effort to find the money with-
in the current budget."
Frustrated
Area residents have com-
plained that receipts from the
county's 1-cent sales tax have
been used to fund water-line
extensions in the northern
part of Sarasota County, but
not locally. A comment made
at the Jan. 11 meeting of the
Nok6mis Center Revital-
ization Advisory Committee:
"We hear so often about
Sarasota County and 'South
County.' It reveals itself over
and over in terms of funding.'
That was echoed by
Thaxton, who said, "I've been
frustrated since I was first
elected that so much more
CDB money goes to projects
in the northern portion of the
county than in the south."
.Nokomis and Laurel resi-
dents learned early in De-
cember that construction
bids to build water lines in
both communities were
about 75 percent higher than
the original estimates. In-
creased costs for asphalt, pip-
ing and oil received the prin-
cipal blame from the county
Public Utilities Department.
Estimates mailed last April
in a survey of 715 Nokomis
homeowners suggested that
hooking up to the central
water system would cost
between $3,000 and $4,000.
By December, the total had
jumped to a range of $6,100 to
$7,400.
About 1,600 homes within
the revitalization area and


adjacent neighborhoods are
affected. All are south of
Laurel Road, and extend east-
ward to Pinebrook Road.
Owners of 160 lots in
Laurel learned in mid-
December that their costs to
hook up had also risen. The
cost estimate in Laurel had
Tone up from $7,000 to
10,000 for each lot.

Military tax break a test of politicians' resolve


Staub: Proposed charter

amendments are bad news


Veterans officials believe there are few active
service families in Sarasota County, but recent
history demonstrates that local property tax


breaks are difficult to cor

BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

One of those philosophical
litmus tests that all local pol-
iticians including those in
Sarasota County must
endure from time to time is
whether to embrace a popu-
lar tax break for a deserving
group of people, usually at
some minimal expense to
everyone else.
Last October, Hillsborough
County raised the bar on what
some would describe as a
"feel-good" tax break when it
agreed to provide annual
property tax refunds of up to
$1,500 for members of the
armed services who annually
spent at least 45 days over-
seas.
Commissioners directed
that $1 million be placed in an
escrow account to fund the
program for the two-year
period of 2006 and 2007.
There have been follow-up
cost projections that suggest
an additional $260,000 may
be necessary to cover all the
eligible applicants.
The program is for resi-
dents of unincorporated
Hillsborough County who
own homes and have re-
ceived a Florida Homestead
Tax Exemption.
Residents of cities within
the county Plant City,
Tampa and Temple Terrace
- are not eligible, although
Tamp'a is weighing the
option.
"Sarasota County makes
up the difference between the
salaries our employees earn
and what they receive if called
up to active duty," Commis-
sioner Paul Mercier said. "But
this doesn't address those on

active duty who are not part
of our government family."
-'Good news'
Rather than project what
the county might have to sac-
rifice in prop-
erty tax rev-
11W enue if it
adopts such a
... 3 program,
-;: Mercier said
he would
confer with
R J the Veterans
Service Office
Mercier and attempt
to determine
how many residents would be
eligible.
"Commissioner Mercier
called today (Monday) and
asked for the numbers," said
Randy Mayer, a veterans ser-
vice official. "We don't have
them, but the good news is
the wheels are turning. We'll
work through the Veterans
Administration and Depart-
ment of Defense to get them."
It is unlikely a Sarasota
County commitment would
approach what is anticipated
in Hillsborough County.
"We see very few young
veterans off active duty,"
Mayer said. 'Any county that
has a large military installa-
tion would look at this as a
much bigger deal."
The Sarasota County Com-
mission does not easily em-
brace tax breaks for special
groups of people, as evi-
denced by its lengthy.debate
over an additional $25,000

senior homestead tax break
for property owners with
modest annual incomes.
In 1998, the Florida Leg-
islature gave counties and
cities an option to approve
the additional $25,000 tax
break, which many-- includ-
ing the town of Longboat Key
and city of Sarasota did.
But the county wrestled with
it for several years.
Finally, in 2002, the county
commission approved a
$5,000 additional property tax
break for seniors who have
homestead exemptions and
report less than $22,000 in
earned income to the Internal
Revenue Service. It has
passed on opportunities to
increase the figure.
Keeping it simple
Several commissioners
have argued the 1998 senior
tax exemption law has a loop-
hole that allows wealthy peo-
ple who don't report tax-free
income to qualify for a break
that was intended for people
of low and moderate means.
There is no evidence to sup-
port that contention.
In fact, 2004 property
records show that only five
Longboat Key owners applied
for and received the break.
Four of them live in manu-
factured homes at the north
end of the island, and the fifth
is an elderly woman who is
disabled and has lived in her


home for many years.
State Rep. Nancy Detert, R-
Venice, has said state law-
makers realized that checking
the reported income of every
property owner over age 65
who applies for the $25,000
exemption would create
unnecessary red tape, so they
adopted the tax break without
complex provisions.
Mercier was the first
Sarasota County commis-
sioner to propose granting
the tax break and took a
strong position that it should
be for the entire $25,000.
David Mills joined him sever-
al years ago and attempted to
increase the $5,000 figure, but
they couldn't muster three
votes.
Property Appraiser Jim
Todora keeps track of senior
tax exemption applications.
The last completed report
for 2004 shows that 2,211
county residents received the
$5,000. additional property tax
break, while 414 city of
Sarasota residents received
an additional $25,000 tax
break.
Since the law's passage in
1998, state lawmakers have
established guidelines that
only require property owners
who apply for the additional
break to qualify once. If their
annual incomes change, they
must voluntarily submit an
updated report to the proper-
ty appraiser.

ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR


Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub warn-
ed a group of South County.
homeowners association rep-
resentatives that two pro-
posed charter amendments
could harm the South County
area.
Citizens for Sensible
Growth, a grassroots commit-
tee of neighborhood and
business leaders, is seeking to
place two growth initiatives
on the November ballot.
One initiative would re-
quire a public referendum
before extending the Urban
'Service Area. .
The second would require
a super-majority (a 4-1 vote)
from county commissioners
before adding amendments
to the county's comprehen-
sive plan that could increase
density, or "sprawl, traffic
congestion and taxes," as the
group's Web site calls it.
Currently, the board only
needs a 3-2 vote to amend the
plan.
"I always believed in ma-
jority," Staub said.
Sign here
Citizens for Sensible
Growth must gather 13,000
signatures on each of the two
petitions for them to be
placed on the ballot.
The group argues the pro-


posals would help minimize
traffic congestion, sprawl
and taxes for new infra-
structure. It also says they
would create more over-
sight on major land-use
decisions by both commis-
sioners and voters.
"They are all complex
issues. That's why you hire
us," said Staub, who added
commissioners often study
and debate land-use issues
for hours before casting their
votes.
If the proposals pass, Staub
said, areas would lose the
ability to control their own
density, lose the results of the
Lemon Bay Watershed study
and lose the potential for eco-
nomic development.
'"At this point, I'd hate to
see it get on the ballot," Staub
said.
Staub added that county
commissioners have not
moved the Urban Service
Boundary since 1989, and
most land-use votes are al-
ready 5-0.
And she also said commis-
sioners are elected to lead.
"My concern is (that the
proposals) primary address
North County, rather than
what we're trying to do in
South County," said Tom
Minnich of the Southwest
County Alliance of Home-
owners' Associations. "There
is a difference. I just don't
think it's necessary."

O UR VIEW



A good start, but more springs need more help


residents who have complained that
Sarasota County seldom does anything
for North Port or Warm Mineral Springs
may find a recent action encouraging: The
county has purchased less than a third of an
acre in what it calls "the archaeologically sig-
nificant Warm Mineral Springs area."
The land, which cost the county $82,000, is
along the bank'of Warm Mineral Springs
Creek in a wooded area behind the commu-
nity center. But it is only a tiny portion of the.
total stream bank.
The county levies a tax on every home in
the county to raise funds for its Environ-
mentally Sensitive Lands Protection Pro-
gram. That's where the $82,000 came from.
Brooke Elias, the project scientist, report-
ed that other lots have been purchased in the
past, and additional property owners are
being contacted, in hopes of protecting more


of the stream, which eventually flows under
U.S. 41 and on to the Myakka River.
Several "waterfront" lots presently are list-
ed for sale.
Warm Mineral Springs is about 1 mile
north of U.S. 41 and 2 miles east of the
Myakka River. The creek helps protect water
quality for the river's drainage area and outlet
into Charlotte Harbor, Elias explained.
Because of the warm water temperature,
the creek is part of the natural winter breed-
ing grounds of endangeredWest Indian man-
atees.
The creek is one of the few in Sarasota
County that has had limited human impact
and still retains its meandering curves,
according to Elias. Many, if not most, of the
county's streams and creeks have been
straightened and channelized to eliminate
mosquito breeding areas and to deepen


water for boat access, she said.
Archaeologists call the 240-foot-deep
Warm Mineral Springs itself a "rare gem" that
contains a wealth of information about
Florida's Paleo-Indians, believed to have lived
there between 9,500 and 12,000 years ago.
Exploration of the deep spring, with a
mineral content that attracts people looking
for health cures from as' far away as Eastern
Europe, has yielded prehistoric bones, tools
and animal bone fragments. There are bones
in the creek as well.
The spring itself, which has temperatures
that range from 74 to 99 degrees according to
the Florida Geological Survey, was once on a
list of significant places to be purchased by
the state, but the sale never closed. Now the
owner, who runs it as a health spa, has said
he intends to build condominiums near the
pool.


Along the banks of the stream, golden
leather fern, bromeliads and coontie grow.
Coontie was a significant food source for
early Indian tribes.
The small site the county has just pur-
chased also contains scrubby flatwoods that
support foraging habitat for gopher tortoises
and Florida scrub jays.
"Our acquisitions within this site continue
to provide a protective buffer of land to these
original narrow strips along the fragile creek
system." Elias said.
But so far only a handful of steam-edge
lots have been purchased, and so most of the
-creek remains at risk, as homes are built at
water's edge.
Now that the county has recognized the
stream's importance, we urge Sarasota offi-
cials to buy more land and enforce the rules
to protect the stream.


It will take more

BOB VEDDER
- c -;,
, .
: .When Thomas Friedinan
Toglressed ar&asge audienuweu
Sarasota last week. he talked
about how we now have a flat
world, one where every per-
son's job is up for grabs a
world where you can do a lot
of different jobs from just
about anywhere.
Many of us have seen that
when we have ordered tickets
from an airline that uses a call
center in India. But the so-
phistication is much greater.
The example that School
Superintendent Dr. Gary
- Norris uses is of a law firm in
Chicago that uses law- clerks
in India to do research at a
much' lower cost. Now,
through satellite and broad-
band technology, we can read
X-rays overseas, prepare tax
forms you name it and it
can be done.
The call by Dr. Norris and
lots of educators is that we
will have to work harder and
get a lot smarter. I agree. I
applaud his efforts to increase
the hours in the school day.
But while I think this will
help, there is a pervasive
problem that I think is much
deeper.
There are several words
that start with "e" that I think
describe the problem. One
word that comes to mind is
"entitlement": A larger piece
of our society, including our
youth, feel like they are enti-
tled to a lot of things, includ-
ing money and positions,
without working for them.
The next word is "ethic."
People in developing coun-
tries have a very strong work
ethic and a strong learning
ethic that goes way beyond
the hours mandated by the
schools.
I was playing golf in Ireland
Switch my friend Mick Gardner
last year. Our caddy was a
good example of what I am
talking about.
He was a cattle farmer who
caddied to help pay to get his
children to college. Those two
children woke up at 5 in the
morning so they could do
their music lessons and
S.chores to be ready for school.
They would come home and
do homework and more
chores, then play outside.
There was a sense I got of a
1-time many years ago in this
_country.
Ethic could refer to the


family values that- have
changed from a time when
parents revered teachers and
strongly supported them to a
time when more often they
challenge teachers and sup-
port their children's slack per-
formance or bad behavior.
That might bring us to
"environment" what kind
of situation our kids are grow-
ing up in. They come from
broken homes or homes
where parents aren't around
or in situations no one cares.
'Environment includes little
res'Od biti ty arid' d contifiu-
ing trend toward not teaching
core values such as respect,
manners and hard work,
which, of course, includes
school work.
The schools are held ac-
countable for results but they
are only a part of the equa-
tion. It is not their responsi-
bility to raise the children, just
educate them. Usually for
education to be at its best it
requires a partnership of sup-
port from the parents. Today
that is much more rare than it
once was. When we as a soci-
ety find the basis that once
made us great, we will then
compete.
The only problem with
that wonderful plan is that we
will also have to figure how to
do it at a lower cost.

By's Crack: A lady at St.
Marks Lutheran church
was giving her testimony:
"Before I joined this
church, I hated my broth-
er-in-law so much I would-
n't have gone to his funeral.
Now that I have religion,
I'm ready to go any day.

As I have told you, we are
improving your Gondolier
Sun more and more every
week. Hopefullyyou have had
a chance to try the puzzle
pages in the TV book. Each
week we are improving that to
make it as puzzle-hound
friendly as possible.
We have found, for in-
stance, that people really like
the new Sudoku puzzles, so
we went to two and may do
three. We also found that for
those not quite as familiar
with it that we forgot the
instructions. We missed that
this week but will get that for
you. Keep giving us your feed-
back.
Now that you have had
that, it is time to introduce
you to something new: a neat
section called "Relish." This
will come out the first Friday
of every month, starting next
Friday, and will be all about
cooking, wine and associated
nutritional things. We also
would love your feedback on
that.

LETESandy road: It's no placefor bicycles


Sandy road: It's no place for bicycles


Editor:
In reading the Jan. 25-26 article on "Where the Sidewalk
Ends," I was truly amazed.
The Sarasota Manatee Bicycle Club taking its members on
an outing that includes Caspersen Beach, an area that is known
for its natural, sand-swept beauty, is irresponsible on the bike
club's part. As for the biker who biked through the sand, that
was her direct irresponsibility. I learned as a child to walk my
bike across roads and railroad tracks, and certainly not ride in
sand.
I am a full-time resident here, and there are many areas that
we can bike, walk and run in safety. To suggest sweeping that
area is reasonable. Putting in sidewalks because people drive
their cars and bikes without taking proper precautions in more
and more of our natural areas is a knee-jerk reaction. There has
been enough destruction of land because of overbuilding and
greed.
The cyclist's e-mail to the city manager about her own mis-
take is ridiculous. I would suggest to bike clubs and people
planning outings, be safe, be responsible.

Stop the'horse
slaughter

Editor:
After thousands of Amer-
icans spoke out last year,
Congress passed a law with
overwhelming majorities in
the House and the Senate
prohibiting horse slaughter to
continue in 2006.
Now, the U.S. Department
of Agriculture is saying it
might find a way to continue
horse slaughter despite Con-
gress' clear mandate.
Please help in the Humane
Society of USA campaign to
protect horses from slaughter.
We don't eat horse meat but
tens of thousands of American
horses are shipped under
inhumane conditions and suf-
fer a terrible fate at one of three
foreign-owned slaughterhous-
es in the United States.
Former show horses, thor-
oughbreds, ponies, foals, wild
horses, pregnant mares from
the Premarin industry and
any other kind of horse you
can imagine are put through


this brutal process, all so that
their meat can be shipped
overseas to foreign markets
for diners in Europe and Asia.
This is an outrageous act
on the part of an agency
whose purpose is to imple-
ment laws, not sidestep them.
For the sake of our horses
and our democracy, please
take a moment to act to stop
the USDAs illegal action.
This will all be decided
quickly so please don't delay. Go

Not just criminal
deserve some justice
Editor:
On a everyday basis we
hear about child abuse in the
news media. This informa-
tion is passed on by news
folks so we are not aware of
the lack of justice being com-
mitted regularly by "the sys-
tem," which includes judges


appointed as political pawns;
legislators (mostly lawyers
who milk the system) and
voters who put killers like Ted
Kennedy back in office.
The many recent atroci-
ties, both local and nation-
wide, are evidence that for
many years, not just this
administration, corruption
had been rampant. Just read
novels about Samuel Adams,
Thomas Jefferson and the
recent "1776."
As I pointed out in a previ-
ous note here, maybe the
hanging tree should be rein-
troduced and maybe not
just for the repeat child
offenders, but the inadequate
judges and the government
leaches who spoil the ideals
for which this country stands.

Baby boomers need
to fix some problems
Editor:
"The baby boomers will be
the richest generation of
Americans to retire and they
will set the stage for our fu-
ture." Hogwash. The baby
boomers have set up future
generations to fail and fail
miserably.
Let's start with credit: This
society is built today on credit
The national debt continues to
climb and so does the delin-
quency rate on payoff amounts
with personal credit.
Living outside our means.
The Bible says we're not to
live outside our means. We
have interpreted that to mean
"what we can afford in a
monthly payment." If you
have to make payments on it,
you can't afford it. Why do you
think that generations of fam-
ilies in this country still live
under one roof? It's not out-
side their means.


Mothers working full-time,
liking their husbands to pro-
vide the lavish lifestyle they
want their kids to have is
another sign of our demise.
There is nothing wrong with
women in the workplace;
however, there is a problem
with mothers not being there
for their children.
, Mom has enough to deal
with having children; why
should she have to work to
help make ends meet? Why
do you think generations
before the baby boomers
lived one family under one
roof? So the next generations
could learn from their older
ancestors.
American families have
fallen apart and the only
thing to blame is money -
money we have or don't have.
Baby boomers: You want to
set the stage, fix the problems
you've created; don't pawn
them off on your great-grand-
children.

Boaters, clean water

r-
BY LAURA COMER
GUEST COLUMNIST

With more than 980,000
registered boaters in Florida
and more than 2,000 marinas
that serve them, the effects of
year-round boating activities
contribute to constant and
growing pressure on sensitive
aquatic and marine ecosys-
tems such as the Lemon Bay
Watershed.
In response, the Clean
i Boating Partnership devel-
oped the Clean Marina Pro-
gram to help marinas, boat-
yards and boaters protect
Florida's waterways using
simple environmental prac-
tices that prevent pollution.
Formed in 2000, the Clean'
Boating Partnership includes
the Department of Environ-
mental Protection, Marine
Industries Association of
Florida, Florida Sea Grant
Program and United States
Coast Guard and Coast Guard
Auxiliary, among others.
"Clean water is the life-
blood of tourism, the marine
industry and the boating
public in Florida," said Alison
Underwood, chairwoman of
the Clean Boating Partner-
ship. "Our partnership goal is
to protect fragile ecosystems
while ensuring continued
public enjoyment of our wat-
ers."

I mentioned last week that
I was unhappy that booster
groups were being asked to
give money to the Education
Foundation. As it turns out,
that was not quite the case.
Actually, dthe school admin-
istration had asked .. the
schools if.they could get peo-
ple to help schools in the Gulf
Coast damaged Hurricpne
Katrina. That filtered down to
all kinds of people who were
asked to send their money to
the Education Foundation for
Distribution. So you can see
how it looked like the Edu-
cation Foundation was ask-
ing. -
The great news is that
Sarasota County schools rais-
ed more than $42,000, which
was way more than the
v $17,000 each county was
a asked to shoot for.

c Today's Ism: Why is it


rina Program is recognition
for marinas, boatyards and
retailers that implement spe-
cific best-management prac-
tices for fueling, boat clean-
ing, habitat protection, waste
and sewage management,
storm water runoff and emer-
gency preparedness.
However, the success of
the program depends on the
participation and support of
the boaters, so a lot of effort is
put into communicating
clean boating habits to the
boating community.
Clean boating habits in-
clude properly preparing
boats when hurricanes ap-
proach, careful fueling to
avoid spills, appropriate
management of bilge oil,
sewage, gray water and other
wastes such as batteries, mer-
cury switches, flares and
trash.
Additional actions boaters
can take to maintain a clean
marine environment include
careful selection of cleaning
products and using cleaning
methods that prevent their
release to surface waters, as
well as protecting habitat by
staying in channels and
avoiding areas where boat
propellers and wakes can
damage submerged aquatic
vegetation or cause shoreline
erosion.

A person with a serious
problem with a business
should call the Better Busi-
ness Department at the Ven-
ice Area Chamber of Com-
merce.. It receives about eight
to 10 complaints a month and
tries to resolve them all.
You may be shocked to
know that your chamber took
1,374 inquiries in December
and had more than 1,000 peo-
ple visit.

George Hunt, former city
manager of Venice, is one of
three finalists for the job of
city manager of Fernadina
Beach, Fla. Actually, the two
others dropped out, so the
city is deciding how to pro-
ceed.

It seems no matter how
many street lights the city
replaces on Business 41, there
are a lot more out. Still two
dozen or. more lights out.
Looks like we got low-life
bulbs or something.

There is great news. You
may remember that one of
our readers had suggested
that an osprey nest be built on
an abandoned FPL pole next
to the Intracoastal. Thanks to
Terry Redman, the county
and FPL, a platform was built.
Well, "renters" are setting up a
new household there.


Clean Marina Program out-
lines the actions boaters can
take to ensure the continued
enjoyment of Lemon Bay and
other Florida waters for years
to come. There are currently
110 clean marinas and 21
clean boatyards across Flor-
ida distributing the hand-
books, including Gulf Harbor
Marina and Marina Jack. The
handbooks can also be ob-
tained at most Florida boat
shows.
Nearly 11,000 boaters at-
tending Florida boat shows
have already taken the
pledge.
There are more than
22,000 boaters in Charlotte
County and 23,000 boaters in
Sarasota County. So, boaters,
get out there and exert what

Speaking of that area, I
suggest that the water tower
that has some historic value
at Eagle Point should be
moved to the railroad station
area.

I like the new name for
Grove Terrace. Brookside Vil-
lage. soiuds' very qiaint and-
goes nicely with the creek
running by it.

I needed to turn on utilities
at a house in the city. I went to
do that and forgot my check-
book and they don't take plas-
tic.
To help out I thought I'd
take the application along
and fill it out to save everyone
time. Those are not allowed
outside of city hall but there is
a form you. can fill out that
can then get transferred to the
real thing. Does that seem like
waste and bureaucracy at its
best? However, let me tell you
the people at city hall were
extremely courteous..

The Rotarians did another
great job of putting on the Art
Fest last weekend, raising
large sums to benefit youth.
Final numbers have not sur-
vived the Jack Meyerhoff and
Grady Hough audit yet, but
the results will be substantial.

Controls on property are communism


The new communism. I'm amused at the types of problems
that the new Pit Stop location will have on the island. I've never
been a big fan of communistic neighborhood overlay districts.
They could have moved someplace else, yet. another empty
storefront. I feel that, in a way, it's trying to disrespect the


neighborhood around Venice
they kind of got paid back for. I
ize that the overlay district is jus

Too hot to trot. There must
be a problem with air condi-
tioning in the new Venice
Community Center. This is
the second dance I've been to
where it's just been too hot to
dance. How come there's no
flag in the auditorium?
Whose line? I'd like to take
issue with Marty Black's
remarks in the Gondolier Sun
on Jan. 13, when he wrote the
Venice Garden Club again
decorated a holiday tree at
city hall, placed holiday deco-
rations around the Gazebo,
and also placed holiday lights
around city hall. I saw a
Christmas tree and Christmas
lights in and around city hall.
I guess it depends on whose
line we're trying, to straddle.
Maybe he should have just
skipped his column this week.
No exceptions. Friday the
13th, Gondolier Sun's Marty
Black column in one para-
graph states, while these dec-
orations do not reflect any
one religious belief and so on,
in the very next paragraph he
makes a special exception -
special event in parentheses,
as he refers to it, permitting a
religious group to place a dis-
play in a portion of Centen-
nial Park. What he's done is
open up the future displays of
all religious denominations.
You cannot make special
exception for any group and
enforce rules or ordinances in
the future. Cases in civil court
are thrown out where special
exceptions are made.
EDITOR'S NOTE: As Black point-
ed out, any community group can
request a permit to hold an event
onr-city property. The city itself, -' !
however, cannot sponsor religion-
themed events.
Being robbed. We are hear-

What is their advice on older

they're in? Is there any organi-
zation that will help them
with that? If so, please publish
the name.

STAFF REPORT

When it comes to fire safe-
ty, careful consideration must
be given to the requirements
of people with special needs,
said Sarasota Fire Chief Brian
Gorski.
"People should consider
how a family member's spe-
cial circumstances or abilities
could affect that family mem-
ber's ability to escape a fire,"
said Gorski.
Families that include a per-
son with special needs should
have a discussion about their
special needs and the escape
i plan for the home, Gorski
says. The Sarasota County
Fire Prevention Office will
also provide guidance in
developing an escape plan.
.Every home should, have.
an escape plan and all mem-
bers of the household should
practice it at least twice a year.
Everyone should know at
least two ways out of every
room and every way out' of
the building.
If a household member has
a special need, then the
escape plan needs to include
arrangements for that person.
For example, Gorski said, if
a person cannot escape on his
or her own, designate a mem-

case the person isn't at home.
Locate the bedrooms for
people with limited mobility

.the home is multi-level, their
bedrooms should be on the
ground floor and near an exit.
Install a telephone exten-

DORIS KEMPES
SURFACE
89, died in her sleep Friday,
January 6, 2006 in her room at the
Inn, Assisted Living Facility at
Aston Gardens, Venice, Florida.
Doris was born in Oak Park.
Illinois, where she attended schools
and showed outstanding academic
ability. In her senior year at Oak
Park and River Forest Township
High School, she won the
"Scholarship cup", given to the
student with the top grades over
four years.
Her accomplishments led to a high-
grade college choice Oberlin
College in Oberlin, Ohio. After four
years she graduated Magna Cum
Laude from Oberlin and was
employed by Harris Trust and
Savings Bank in Chicago, Illinois.
She took an entry level job as a
stenographer because there were no
other jobs available. She was soon
promoted to the investment
department training new employees
and traveling to interpret the
bank's investment policies. She was
made a vice-president of the Harris
Bank. Doris decided on a move and
purchased a condo on Gault Ocean
Mile where she enjoyed mid
distance swimming in the Atlantic.
On January 3, 1979 Doris was
married to Paul Macy Surface, a
friend from Oberlin days. The)
moved to Paul's home in Raiford,
Florida where Paul had been
employed as an instructor in Math
and Science at the State Prison at
Starke, Florida. Paul died October
23,2001.
Doris is survived by: Dr. and Mrs.
Robert H. Kempes, Sr. (Polly
Pierce), Dr. and Mrs. Robert H.
Kempes, Jr. (Claire Riley), Mr. and
Mrs. Richard S. Kempes, ESQ.
(Debbie Hecker), Mr. and Mrs.

alarm should be used.
There are also smoke
alarms that sound a lower
pitch alarm that may be easi-
er for people, with impaired
hearing.
Many fatal home fires hap-
pen at night. People unable to
leave without assistance
should call the fire depart-
ment at 9-1-1 and tell the dis-
patcher their location in the
home. For those who have
cordless phones, try to keep
the phone nearby.
Also, keep a working
flashlight near the bed.
Flashlights will be of assis-
tance when exiting the
building and to signal fire-
fighters if one becomes
trapped by a fire.

STAFF REPORT,

The Sarasota County
Judicial Center will be re-
named the Judge Lynn N.
Silvertooth Judicial Center
in a naming ceremony and
sign dedication Feb. 23 at
1 p.m.
A lifelong resident of
Sarasota, Silvertooth was first
appointed as a 12th Judicial
Circuit Court judge in 1964 by
then-Gov. Farris Bryant. At
the time, the 12th Judicial
Circuit encompassed eight


counties Sarasota,
Manatee, DeSoto, Charlotte,
Lee, Collier, Glades, and
Hendry and there were
only six circuit judges in the
circuit.
Silvertooth served as chief
judge of the 12th Judicial
Circuit during some major
changes. In 1972, a constitu-
tional amendment abolished
local justice of the peace
courts as well as municipal
courts in favor of a state court
system.
Silvertooth also was res-


ponsible for organizing the
bailiff system in Sarasota and,
in 1976, hiring the first court
administrator for the 12th
Judicial Circuit, which by that
time had been reconstituted
to include Sarasota, Manatee
and DeSoto counties.
Silvertooth served unop-
posed as a circuit judge until
his retirement in 1988.
Silvertooth has been mar-
ried to the former Betty
Wilson for 58 years. They have
two children, Sandy and Jim,
and four grandchildren.

Signing Day

hits home

'It's that time of year again
when the top high school
football players in the land
officially choose at which col-
lege they want to continue
their careers.
National Signing Day is
Wednesday, Feb. 1.
' Recruiting magazines try to
figure out what big-time uni-
versity got the most blue
chips, ranking them overall,
regionally and by conference.
* On a smaller scale, Na-
tional Signing Day also hits
home. Four years ago, Tre
Smith signed on with Auburn.
Last year, Aaron Stahl hooked
up with North Carolina.
, This year will see. more
Venice players agreeing to
accept scholarships.
Gerald Tate, a 2003 Venice
High graduate, will be heading
to'Troy State in Alabama. Tate,
a talented athlete, has spent
the last two years getting his
act together at Dodge City
Junior College in Kansas.
STate played quarterback at
VHS, but switched to receiver
aftDodge City. He had a bang-
up sophomore season and -is
ready for the next level.
Current VHS senior Kyle
Poinsett will reportedly sign
on to play at Colgate Uni-
vrsity in NewYork. Poinsett, a
second team All-State selec-
tion, is a big tackle who should
make an immediate impact
with the Raiders.
,Another senior, Tony
Charles, would have been a
shoo-in to sign his John Han-
cockWednesday, but he is not
academically qualified. His
core GPA and test scores aren't
where they need to be. Coach
N .ick Coleman said everyone
It 1 Indian Avenue will be
working to get Charles quali-
fied by the end of the year.
J "There are schools that
want him," Coleman said.
. Charles was the heart and
4oul of Venice this past fall. He
was second team All-State
selection. He was picked to
play in the North-South All-
$tar Game in Ocala. As a
senior, Charles rushed for
more than 1,500 yards and led
the Indians in tackles at his
safety position.
Other Indian gridders like
flya Vasilevskiy also plan to
play college football. Their
decisions will come in the
near future.

On the college wrestling
scene, Levi Duyn and Adrian
Bull are former VHS mat
standouts busy at the next
lpvel.
; Duyn, an unbeaten state
champ his senior year at VHS,
wrestled his freshman and
sophomore years at The
Citadel. He has been red-
shirted this year, but will be
back stronger than ever in
2006-07.
Bull is wrestling at the
tUniversity of the Cumber-
lands in Tennessee. He is sec-
ond string heavyweight. Bull
hopes to move into the start-
ing lineup next year.

SJunior colleges are tradi-
tionally the first to get their
baseball seasons under way in
Florida.
SAndrew Tilka, a 2005 VHS
grad, looked sharp in fall ball
and could be one of the
starters at Daytona Beach
Community College. DBCC
opens its season Monday.
Tilka, a tall right-hander, is the
lone Indian now at Daytona.

Venice High boys basket-
ball coach Steve Cavallaro
isn't a pastor, but that doesn't
stop him from preaching
defense.
The message has appar-
ently sunk in.
Venice held visiting
Lakewood Ranch to just four
first-half points Friday night,
allowing the Indians to pull
away to a 52-30 victory over
the Mustangs.
Venice's sixth straight win
improved the team's record to
13-10 overall and 8-6 in Class
5A District 11. Ranch fell to 6-
14 and 3-11.
Venice's first two baskets of
the night were layups off
steals. That set the tone for
the first half where the
Indians walked out to a 23-4
lead.
",Any time you hold a varsi-
ty team to four points, you're
playing exceptional defense,"
Cavallaro said. "You have to
have five guys on the same
page, all doing the right
things. When you do that, it's
hard to score."
Kalen Lyons, Kyle Abney
and Bill Mehserle took care of
business inside while guards
Ariel Bonilla and George


Stritz did their share of
harassing.
Usually the sixth man,
Mehserle got a rare start .with
center 1iyaVasievskiy missing
the game because of a foot-
ball recruiting trip.
The ever-husding forward
not only did the job defen-
sively. but he had nine of his
game-high 17 points in die
second quarter.
"Bill had a great game -
actually the last three games,"
Cavallaro said. "He plays with
a lot of energy."
Abney didn't score a lot of
points, but he was very
active on the defensive
grabbing rebounds and
rejecting shots.
Lyons finished with eight
points and had another solid
all-around effort.
Guards Bonilla and Stritz
each finished with 11 points.
With such a big halftime
lead, Venice let up a little in
the third quarter, as Ranch
actually outscored the In-
dians there. But the home
team sealed the win with a
string fourth quarter.
Venice has two more regu-
lar season games both at
home. Cardinal Mooney
comes to town Tuesday night
and Senior Night is Friday
against Lemon Bay.


Venice finishes the dis-
trict schedule with a record
of 8-6. That should be good
enough for the third seed in
the eight-team district tour-
nament.
"I think we were 1-4 at one
points, so 8-6 is not bad,"
Cavallaro said.
The Indians would play the
sixth seed in the tourney
opener. Cavallaro thinks that
might be North Port, al-
though he is not 100 percent
sure of that.
The district tournament
begins Feb. 7. North Port is
the tourney host.

Shaky start dooms Venice Vikings in home opener

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice Vikings played
like they were on another plan-
et in the first half of their 2006
home opener Saturday night
against the Fort Pierce Fire.
We're talking about as cold
as Pluto.
Although the Vikes righted
the ship and played competi-
tive ball the second half, it was
not enough to dig them out of
the early hole.
Fort Pierce (1-1) held on for
a 15-6 Southern States Foot-
ball League victory over
Venice (0-2).
Venice stumbled and fum-
bled the ball away in the first
half. The offensive line was
simply overmatched by the
Fire.
A switch of quarterbacks did
wonders in the second half, as
Chauncey Jones proved to be a
threat both running an throw-
ing. His 29-yard TD pass to Ben
Seymour early in the fourth


quarter drew the score to 15-6.
The Viking defense also
played inspired ball in the sec-
ond half with Izzy Laguerre,
Carter Bryant, Gerald Perry,
Dre Lewis, Frank Gianfrido,
Billy Hall and Eddie Gipson
laying licks on the Fire.
The Fire scored on a safety
three minutes into the game
and had the next TD practical-
ly handed to them when the


Venice booter missed the ball
twice in a free kick.
It went to 15-0 early in the
second quarter when Brian
Coblentz hit Eddie Keyes for a
20-yard TD.
From there, the defenses
took over and it turned into a
punting war with Venice's J.D.
Willing and Fort Pierce's
Fabrizio Scaccia trading
boomers.

Local counties always get their man


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER

If you're driving or walking
around Olde Englewood
Village, you'd better watch
your step. In more ways than
one.
The counties were in
town Wednesday, patrolling
in the area and pulling over
motorists for speeding and
* running stop signs.
Mounted police are noth-
ing new, but the Sarasota
* County Sheriff's Office has
bolstered its special opera-
tions mounted units lately.
The unit has gone from a
part-time operation to a full-
time range of surveillance set-
tings with eight horses and
eight riders, said Sgt. Chris
Laster, a member of the unit
and nationwide mounted
police educator.
"We're probably one of the
most universal units," Laster
said Wednesday.
"We're the greatest public
relations. We can ride in drug
neighborhoods, people will
come up and talk to us. And at
the same time, we're effective
enforcers, as well.
"We're the most versatile.


We get compliments all of the
time. We can go to public rela-
tions in one second to drug
enforcement the next. It
works out very well."
Laster said people will
come up to an officer on a
horse, but people are less like-
ly to walk up and have a con-
versation with an officer in a
surveillance vehicle.
Laster said horses and rid-
ers patrol neighborhoods,
parks, beaches, large events
and ceremonial events.
Officers are armed, but not
with just guns. They carry an
extra equipment, like hand-
held radar detectors and win-
dow tint meters, Laster said.
And if you were one of the
more than a dozen speeders
stopped along West Dearborn
Street Wednesday, you might
have been surprised to see a
horse walk out in front of your
car and an officer waving you
over to the curb.

What's that smell?
Catching speeders is just
one police feat performed
from on-high.
"We have a lot of reasons to
stop someone," Laster said.
"For 'instance, loud music."


Laster said since officers
are not riding in cars that have
windows closed, they can
hear more. They can see and'
smell more, too.
"We can also smell people
smoking drugs," Laster con-
tinued.
"We can do county code
enforcement. We can see
above the fences. We can see
trash or cars on people's prop-
erty or people growing drugs.
We're 10 feet up. We're a good
deterrent."' i
Laster said the horses are
all either bay or black for uni-
formity, and the breeds are
both Thoroughbreds or
Warmbloods, a sport horse
breed.
Laster said those breeds
are normally large enough to
carry large officers with all of
their equipment.
"They have to be big
because we are carrying an
extra 25 pounds. They have to
be at least 16 hands tall."
The horses are ridden
English-style for two reasons.
"The saddle is a lot lighter
than aWestern saddle," Laster
said.
The classic style of English
riding allows for. more
maneuverability than does
Western, he said.
"We're able to have more
contact on the horse," Laster
said. "We want the horse to be
very athletic and balanced."

Chris Laster of Sarasota County Sheriff's Office Mounted Unit.
Laster's horse, which has yet to be named, was patrolling for
the first time. The special operations unit consists of eight
horses and eight patrolmen.


Laster returns a license to a motorist who was pulled over for
speeding Wednesday on Dearborn Street. The county's
Mounted Unit stops speeders by riding their horses in front of
oncoming traffic.

West Villages district to expand southward?


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

; The West Villages Im-
,'provement District may
,'someday rival the city of
Sarasota in population and
land size.
:, This is the stark reality
^Sarasota County commis-
i'sioners faced Tuesday when
.'they were asked to give coun-
t 'y staff direction on 3,600
'acres of land that reaches as
far as the Englewood Sports
SComplex and the Venetia de-
;welopment on State Road 776.
-, That land is an extension of
:,the nearly 8,000 acres of land
,:hat was annexed by the city
,of North Port in 2005 and is
'commonly referred to as the
Thomas Ranch project.
Commissioners fretted
over whether they should
support the West Villages
expansion outright, but ad-
mitted if they tried to block it,
the land could be annexed
into North Port and they
would lose all control over
future land use decisions.
"' "This is unbelievable," said
,,.commissioner Shannon
Staub. "We need to have an
agreement with them to keep
control over the land use
there."
The commissioners were
quick to cite the existing
Lakewood Ranch Steward-
ship District, which is an
A-interlocal agreement between
'Sarasota and Manatee coun-
-ties for a large development.
"That is the framework we
should use with this," Staub
suggested.
S Other commissioners ag-
reed that an interlocal agree-
ment similar to the Lakewood
Ranch agreement will keep
the county's
hand in the
project while
giving the
developer
options.
_Nceed a say
The project
area sits on
the 8,000 Patterson
acres on both
sides of U.S. 41 and along
River Road. That area is
expected to have 15,000
homes and up to 30,000 resi-
dents when it is built.
The additional 3,600 acres
could potentially add another
20,000 residents.
"We are talking a city as big
as Sarasota," Commissioner
Nora Patterson said. "That is
huge and we need to have a
-say in their plans. I just don't
like it."
The commissioners cited
the annexation that took most
of the development decisions
on the first 8,000 acres out of
their hands And put them into
the hands of North Port offi-
tcials.
The reason the county was
even asked to support the
West Villages plans to expand
.is that the move must be for-
,-,mally approved by the state
Legislature since it is a regu-
'lated improvement district.
There is another portion to
the west of the new North
Port cityline that is also a part
rof the ranch and could also be
annexed or stay part of the
'county.
Commissioners were hesi-
itant to approve any action but
Ultimately agreed to keep the
'dialogue open, which is what
'staffwas seeking.
Commissioner -Jon Thax-
'ton refused to support the
development because he said
a shift south is the next step
toward overdevelopment.
,, Staub said that whether the
county wants development in
"that part of the county or not,
she prefers that portion stay-
iing under the county's juris-
diction.
"'Do we want us to see the
city of North Port and its regu-
'lations controlling that?" she
asked. "I'd rather not."
Commissioner Paul Mer-
i cier echoed Staub's com-
ments and added, "I'd rather
ea player at the table than


n observer."
jPatterson, who also op-
\ed moving forward with
project, said she doesn't
\


want to play.
'"This still remains a scram-
ble," she said. "Before the an-
nexation we weren't going to
have anything there for
another 15 to 20 years."
Ready to sit down
Anne McClung, a county


planning director, said she
would take the board's lead.
McClung will also keep
working with West Villages
representatives as the devel-
opment process moves for-
ward on its way through Tal-
lahassee.
, Charles Geer, an engineer


with Kimley-Horn and As-
sociates Inc., who is working
with the developers of the
property, said he has no prob-
lem with maintaining a dia-
logue with county officials.
"We are ready to sit down
and talk with them on any
issue," Geer said. "The district


APjL~IfNiE'





rIt'irtiit'Un Electronics-. Hodding


is a vehicle to provide quality
development."
Staub said she wants to be
a part of the process because
it will have a huge impact on
Englewood and South Venice
and, without having a say, the
county could face a develop-
ment that could overwhelm


the area.
"We need to have some say
and control in their process,"
she said. "It just makes
sense."

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 site of that hole, the
better to study it for future
rounds.
This home has one of the
very best views of that
famous hole. Even non-
golfers 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-sized bed as


Sun photos by Kim Cool

the Panther golf course at the Plantation Golf & Country Club.


well as a seating area.
Solar panels provide heat
to the inground pool.
Listed for $649,900, the
house can be seen by
appointment. The home is
located at 626 Khyber Lane.
From the entrance, drive
straight back into the com-


munity 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, call Weinberger
at (941) 223-6752 or Pat
Davids at (941) 716-2300.

Open house to feature art show


By KIM COOL
VENICE GONDOLIER SUN
FEATURES EDITOR
A major waterfront home
has come on the market for
the first time on sheltered
deep water Forked Creek in
Englewood.
It will be showcased today,
from 1 p.m. to. 4 p.m. with a
display of original work by
horticultural artist Sandi
Olsen of Englewood.
In addition to an historic
original roundhouse, which
was added to in 1986 to create
a 3,800-square-foot, four-bed-
room, three-and one-half-
,bath home, there is a new sea-
wall cap, a covered boat dock
and more than enough room
to tie up a large trawler.
Listing Realtor Tony Huff said
the neighbors have a 40-
Grand Banks boat at tlfeir
kdock next door.
Y-Boaters especially will enjoy
the view of the Intracoastal
Vatervay, which offers no
'fixed bridge access to the ICW
,and the Gulf of Mexico.
| Recently updated, in addi-
tion to the new 213-foot-long.

new roof, new air-condition-

ing system in the round house
and a new drainfield for the
home's septic system.
The heavily wooded proper-
ty contains several mature live
oaks, tropical landscaping and
a wide lawn from the main
house to the sea wall and
dock.
A hand-painted mural on


canvas makes a dramatic
statement in the 15- by 20-
foot dining room, which
seems even larger because of
its cathedral ceiling. Narly as
spacious are the 15- by 17-
foot living room and the 16-
by 18-foot family room.
Together, these three rooms
offer an abundance of space
for entertaining, as well as for
the everyday life of a large
family.
The master bedroom mea-
sures 15 by 19 feet. Occupants
have nearly panoramic views
because of the home's angular
placement on the waterway.
The master bath has twin van-
ity sinks, a.jetted tub and sep-
arate shower.
Olsen's work is expected to
be displayed throughout the
house and to include many df
her more popular prints as
well as original paintings of '
flora and fauna. The artist is a
member of the Englewood Art
Center where her work has
been displayed. She also has
work in the collection of the
Horticultural Society of Palm
Beach, Lynese October Inc., in
Clearwater and in several pri-
%ate homes.

'You are lucky to be here; you don't



know what you've got till you've lost it.'



Pieter Kohnstam

Holocaust Survivor


BY LAURA FEHL AND JEFF TAVARES
STAFF WRITERS

Born in 1936, Venice resident Pieter
Kohnstam enjoyed his early childhood
playing with friends and chasing organ
grinders through the streets
of his middle class Ams-
terdam neighborhood. Sadly,
this was a short-lived time of
peacefulness in the boy's
young life.
The Kohnstams are Jews.
Before the onset of World
War II, his mother was a
kindergarten teacher and his
father worked in a toy facto-
ry. They enjoyed playing
bridge with their neighbors,
the Franks, while a very
young Pieter listened as their
daughter, Anne, whom he
called 'Anna," read him sto-


ries. .
"Anna was bright and
sprightly," Kohnstam said of
the girl, seven years his elder,
who would eventually earn
renown with the publication
of her journal describing her
family's Holocaust experi-
ence. Frank died of typhus at
the Bergen-Belsen concen-
tration camp at the age of 15.
Now, 65 years later, Kohn-
stam has written his own
book about his family's sur-
vival of the Holocaust, and
speaks to groups of children
and adults about the perse-
cution he and his family
endured.
"I'm not going to ask you if
you know what it means -
Holocaust is a word that
means decimation, burning,
destruction by fire," Kohn-
stam began his discussion at
the Student Leadership
Academy recently.
The soft-spoken Kohn-
stam attempted to recreate
for the assembled seventh-
and eighth-grade students of
Shawn Martin's World His-


tory class what the world was like for him
and millions of other Jewish men,
women and children during the Holo-
caust 65 years ago.
The family's journey away from Nazi-
occupied Europe began in 1938, after the


Germans invaded Holland.
By that time, conditions for Jews living
in Germany had worsened, culminating
in an event known as "Kristallnacht," or
the night of broken glass. On the nights of
Nov. 9 and 10, gangs of Nazi youth, with


~'1
A


the endorsement of the police, roamed
through Jewish neighborhoods, breaking
windows of Jewish businesses and homes,
burning synagogues and looting. Jews
were physically attacked and beaten, and
91 died; 26,000 Jews were arrested and
sent to concentration camps.
tW An estimated 101 syna-
gogues were destroyed and
almost 7,500 Jewish busi-
nesses were demolished.
The Kohnstams, along
with their Jewish neighbors
in Holland, had already
been forced to wear the
now-infamous "Jude" bad-
ges, which bore the local
word for "Jew" in occupied
lands Jude, Jood, Juif.
Kohnstam has preserved
several badges on an orange
background, which he
showed to the students, exp-
| lining that orange was the
color of the Netherlands
underground during Ger-
man occupation and there-
fore represented freedom.
The family was soon
scheduled to be deported to
the Terezin concentration
camp in Czechoslovakia.
After World War II, only 5
percent of the 15,000 deport-
ed to Terezin survived.
The Kohnstams had a
decision to make.
." Kohnstam's grandmoth-
er urged them to leave:
"Either you leave and have a
chance to live or I'll lock the
house and turn on the gas
-- and we'll all die."
His grandmother stayed
behind with relatives in
Amsterdam, but with the aid
of some Christian friends,
Kohnstam and his parents
began their escape.
The journey took them
from the Netherlands, the
country of his birth, through
Belgium and France, to the
relative safety of Spain.


Pieter Kohnstam showed students a slide of a synagogue destroyed by the Nazis in 1938 during Kris


stallnacht.

Orchids


'The Royal Family of Plants


CAROL MOZIK


If you have always wanted
to, grow orchids, now is the
time to start. Coming up
Feb. 4 and 5 is the 40th
Anniversary of the Venice
Orchid Society Orchid Show,


once again being held 10
a.m.-5 p.m. at the Venice
Community Center, 326 S.
Nokomis Ave., Venice. It has
been two years since the last
show which was canceled
last year due to renovations
at the center. Admission is
free. Along with the judging of
orchids and 10 vendor stands,
you can see beautiful displays
of orchids and arrangements
in a wide range of vivid color.
Some of these orchids you
wouldn't even suspect were
in the orchid family. There
will also be craft exhibits,
classes and raffle prizes
every hour. Jean Terrana,
publicity manager, tells me
that the society will have
stems of cut dendrobiums
that you can, also purchase,
so ask on your way out of
the show. They are wonder-
ful as cut flowers, lasting
more than a week.
My personal orchid fav-


orites are still the traditional
orchids that I remember so
well as, Easter corsages -
cattelyas and cymbidiums,
along with the now popular
and colorful phalanopsis
and dendrobiums. I have had
my best luck with the den-
drobiums. In the beginning
I tried real hard with my
orchids, but found that my
special "degree of neglect"
actually suited the dendro-
biums best. My cattelya has
yet to bloom, by now it
needs to be repotted.
Grab all the growing in-
formation, medium, supplies
and plants you need at the
show, and go for it!
Some general pointers:
* Orchids are air plants, no
over watering.
'Well-drained bark or special
orchid potting mixture, needs
lots of light, no direct sun.
* 55-60 degrees at night, 70-85
degrees during the day, per-

fect Florida weather.
* Water and mist daily at first,
then a couple of times a week,
more in hot weather.
* 30-10-10 is recommended,
only occasionally.
* Remove any dead roots and
repot in spring.

GOING BANANAS
Chiropractic has long advocated eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains as a means of attaining
and maintaining health. This point is, once again, underscored by scientific research that shows that getting
sufficient magnesium in our diets may help protect the body from cancer. According to a Swedish study that
tracked 61,000 women for fifteen years, those who ate more than 255 milligrams of magnesium daily were 41%
less likely to get colon cancer than women who ate the least. That amount of magnesium can be found in a bowl of
bran flakes plus a banana, a handful of almonds, or three-quarters of a cup of cooked spinach. The recommended
daily intake of magnesium is 310 milligrams.
This informative column on the benefits of magnesium has been brought to you as a public service.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER, we are trained to restore the health of your spine
and joints. We're located at 1214-C Venice Ave. East, where we work to restore your heath and guide you in a
personalized approach to overall wellness. Special chiropractic methods, called adjustments, can help reduce
swelling and irritation, relieve pain, and slow degeneration. Please call 941-412-3800 to schedule an appointment.
Let us help you live life without pain. We offer massage therapy and have 2 licensed massage therapists on staff.
P.S. The Swedish researchers in the study mentioned above recommend getting your magnesium from food, not
supplements, which is the best approach to meeting all your nutritional needs.

BY CAROLINE J. CEDERQUIST, MD
GUEST COLUMNIST

Tall and short, dark and
light, freckled and tanned, we
i come in myriad packages
with myriad features, most of
them determined by our
genetics before we ever draw
i breath. Very few of these traits
can we control, and we just
have to play the hand we're
dealt.
But when people are
earnestly trying to lose weight
ariand failing again and again,
many ultimately get the
sneaking suspicion that-they
really are playing against a
stacked deck. They may be
right.
If you're one of those who
subscribes to the notion that
America's growing weight
problem is solely a failure of
personal restraint or will, it's
time. to reconsider. Solid
research is helping us under-
stand just how truly stacked
that deck is, because in addi-
tion to anything else, for some
people who struggle with
their weight, it seems that any
given exercise effort will yield
*far less result than it offers
anyone else because of
what's already coded on their
DNA.
When it comes to. weight,
management, genetic factors,
get blamed for a lot of body
issues where they may or may
not have a role: "She's just big-
boned." "He just carries his
cargo up front." "The whole
family is built that way."
You've heard them all, and
they might have sounded
more like excuses than expla-
nations.
But think about the geneti-

uth about genetics and weight loss


cally based elements that we
already know are out of our
control: People certainly do
have different body types,
with some of us thicker or
thinner than others, and
shorter or taller.
Then there's the particular
predisposition for distribu-
tion, for having our weight in
certain places on our bodies,
which could be the old
apple/pear body-type con-
trast, or a tendency to carry
fat on the arms.
Add to those a predisposi-
tion for building muscle easi-
ly or not. And if you want to
be very specific, throw in that
natural love or dislike of ath-
letic pursuits that would cer-
tainly come into play with
exercise.
From just those few fea-
tures, you can see how some-
one with a unfavorable com-
bination of genetic factors is
going to be at a disadvantage
compared to someone with a
better "stack" of factors.
And now there's this: Re-
searchers have identified spe-
cific combinations of genes
that appear to correlate very
strongly with fat retention
independent of, even in spite
of, exercise..
In a very closely controlled,
year-long study with post-
menopausal women cho-
sen as subjects because they
are more stable, hormonally
speaking researchers di-
vided the participants into an
exercise intervention group
and a control group.
All the subjects were care-
fully selected for specific fea-
tures of their health and
lifestyle. Various lab tests were
taken, including certain gen-


etic tests. The subjects were
all instructed hot to change
their dietary habits. The con-
trol group was assigned a
moderate stretching regimen
to use over the course of the
study, and the intervention
group was given a moderate
intensity, 45-minute workout
for five days a week, initially
with supervision. There was
detailed tracking, because the
researchers were especially
interested in identifying dis-
tinctions between genetic
and environmental factors.
At the end of the study
period, the researchers found
a distinct variability in the
amount of fat lost by some
exercisers that could not be
explained by their adherence
levels.
So the researchers looked
to the genetic data, and in-
deed, there were two specific
genes that stood out related
to patterns of fat loss and
exercise. Participants with
certain combinations of
those genes and their variants
had significantly, different fat
loss outcomes.
The complex science at
this level can be pretty con-
fusing. Genes are named with
different alpha-numeric
codes and so are their variant
alleles. If you're not careful,
you can end up in some real
alphabet soup just trying to
talk about it, but basically two
genes are involved here, the
CYP19 and the COMT.
They found that having
one CYP19 gene and its vari-
ants was not consistently
associated with percentage
fat, total fat, subcutaneous fat
or intra-abdbminal fat, that
dangerous excess that gathers


around our vital organs.
But having two such genes
correlated to a slightly larger
decrease in body mass index,
and a significantly larger de-
crease in total fat and per-
centage of body fat.
And having a particular
genotype of the- COMT gene,
together with at least one
copy of the CYP19 gene, also
related to a significantly larg-
er decrease in BMI, total fat
and percentage of body fat.
There were corresponding
intermediate combinations
and results that bore out the
relationships.
Interestingly, in the exer-
cising group, those with a
specific variant of the CYP19
gene lost more fat over the
year, but in the nonworkout
group, those with that same
variant gained more fat.
Why and how these genes
affect the fat/exercise rela-
tionship isn't yet understood,
but now that these have been
identified as significant, they
are the subject of much new,
focused study. Other research
has since showed that wom-
en with that specific CYP19
variant have higher concen-
trations of the hormones
estrone and estradiol, which
may make them more resis-
tant to fat loss through exer-
cise.
Obviously, everyone can't
go for genetic testing before
embarking on a weight loss
effort. And where the rubber
meets the ,road, it may not
even matter what specific
genetic makeup you have
that could be adding to your.
difficulty.
The important thing is that
'this research shows once


again that the calories-in,
calories-out explanations
about body weight are just
too simplistic and don't
account for many very real
variables that have nothing to
do with will or self- restraint.
Many people have always
known this at gut level, but it's
good to see the science bear
that but, That said, people
shouldn't assume that they're
genetically precluded from
ever being thin and healthy.
Remember that natural love
of athletic activity we men-
tioned? You might not be
born with it, but you can
learn new behaviors and
adapt.
Nowadays, we have all
sorts of ways to overcome our
genetics. We take medica-
tions, we dye our hair, we
even wear colored contact
lenses! The exercise plan that
got your sister so svelte may
not work for you, but some-
thing will.
So if you're one of those
with the bad hand, don't give
up! A dietary and weight
management program could
be tailored to address your
very specific needs in order to
get and keep your weight in
check. Because getting dealt a
bad hand doesn't doom you
to losing the game it just
means you need a different
strategy for winning it.
Thick and thin
If you've earnestly tried to
drop weight, and your results
just don't ever seem to stack
up very well next to your pals',
that can be very demoraliz-
ing. But it may be that you're
subject to certain resistant
genetic factors. Sometimes,


simply understanding the
cards they're holding can alle-
viate a lot of the frustration for
people by enabling them to
set more reasonable expecta-
tions, and helping them take a
fresh start at getting healthy.

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

Q. Every time I open the
paper I see advertisements
for digital hearing aids at
very low prices. When I
asked my Audiologist about
this, she said those digital
hearing aids do not have
computers in them. Help,
I'm confused.
A. Confusing you is exactly
what those advertisements
hope to do. "Real" digital
hearing aids contain
sophisticated computers which
process sound moment to
moment. These tiny computers
change the amplification in
reaction to changes in the
environment of the listener.
They are able to perform
hundreds of computations per
second and provide clear, high
fidelity sound to the listener at
all times. It is these types of
instruments people think of
when they hear the term
"digital hearing aid." Some
manufacturers, however, have
chosen to remove the
computers from their hearing
aids while still keeping the
"digital" label. These
instruments do not do any
moment-to-moment signal
processing and. cannot be
reprogrammed in the future.
Because these instruments do
not contain computers, their
performance is limited and
their prices are low. The
advertisers you mentioned are
hoping you notice the low price
and won't notice the difference
between "their" digital hearing
aids and "real" ones. In order
to learn more about the benefits
of various hearing aid
technologies and which ones
would work best for you, call
the Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. at 492-4327 to schedule a

JIM MILLER



Dear Savvy Senior,
Can you recommend a
resource that lists the different
discounts that are available to
seniors today? I just turned 60
and live on a pretty tight budget
and can use all the help I can get.
- Bargain Hunting Betty
Dear Betty,
One of the advantages of
growing older these days is
the many discounts that are
available to seniors. While
there's no one single master
list of businesses that provide
senior discounts, there are a
variety of resources that can
help you hunt. Here's what
you should know.
Ask
The first thing to know is
that not all businesses adver-
tise it, but many give senior
discounts just for the asking
- so don't be embarrassed to
ask. Also, keep in mind that
some discounts are available
as soon as you turn 50, while
others may not kick in until
you turn 55, 60, 62 or 65.
Here are some resources,


organizations and tips that
can help you get started.

counts on a huge variety of

tion, shopping, restaurants,

SeniorDis.counts.com
allows you to search for dis-
counts by the city, state, or
zip code and by the category
you're interested in. They
also offer a free weekly e-mail
newsletter and a new Senior
Discounts Card program and
guide book (for $24) available
to people age 55 and older.
Visit seniordiscounts.com or
call (800) 372-7513.
AARP

know that AARP provides
various discounts to their

For a listing of their dis-
counts and services, visit

687-2277. Annual AARP
membership fee is $12.50.

Retired Federal Employees
Association offers its mem-
bers discounts on moving
services, auto rentals, insur-


ance, hotel chains, travel ser-
vices and more. Membership
is available to current, former
or retired federal employees
and spouses. Membership
fees vary but typically cost
under $40 per year. Visit

USA Next
A conservative organiza-
tion that offers members of

thing from prescription

community organizations
may offer discounted prod-
ucts and services to their
older residents. Call your
Area Agency on Aging to find
out what's available. To get
your local number, call (800)
677-1116.
BenefitsCheckUp

service that can help millions
of older Americans (age 55
and over) quickly and easily
find benefits they may quali-
fy for. Benefits ranging from
health care coverage and dis-

Memorable musical moments


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
2 iU( nxii


Each of us has different
memorable musical memo-
ries just as we have different
experiences in all facets of life.
If you can remember Mad-
ame Schermannheink, Galli-
curci and Caruso you've got to
be getting up in years a bit.
The only songs I remember
are "Whispering Hope" and
'Ava Maria." Which one sang
which song? J dunno!
It was about 1920 when my
mother and I went on a train
to visit my Great Aunt Cynthia
that lived in Los Angeles. We
heard the records on her large
mahogany Victrola console.
In the bottom were albums
filled with records. Do you
remember those?
The next musical experi-
ence that stands out poig-
nantly in my mind is when I
was 14 years old and I heard
Jeanette McDonald and Nel-
son Eddy sing "Indian Love
Call." I thought it was so
romantic and beautiful.


What happened to the
beautiful love songs of yester-
day? Today's music sounds
discordant and a bit strange.
When I was 17 I spent a
summer with my sister in.
Washington, D.C. One
evening we went to a
"Watergate Concert" long
before the name "Watergate"
became famous. On a balmy,
starry night we sat on the
banks of the Potomac River
listening to a symphony
orchestra from a shell stage.
Maybe it was the song
"Spanish Eyes" that sent me
into a musical high that I had
never before experienced. It
made me want to fly and
dance.
At Indiana University my
fiance and I danced to every
big band in the books, in-
cluding Duke Ellington,
Wayne King and Louis Arm-
strong. I have to confess to
having three left feet when I
dance, and I suppose I'm tone
deaf too. Even with these
handicaps I love music and
. dancing.
When we lived in Big
Rapids from 1956 to 1980 we
had a constant diet of beauti-
ful music on the campus.
Dacho Dachoff, the college
musical director, arranged
concerts by greats such as
Doc Severinson and famous
violinist Joseph Silverstein,
(who had just been named
concert master of the Boston
Symphony). I didn't know a


violin could sound so unbe-
lievable sweet.
I remember my son John,
by then about 6 and already
very familiar with the college
auditorium, climbing to a
hidden part of the stage and
sitting there cross legged and
spellbound the entire perfor-
mance. When he returned to
his seat he announced,
"When I grow up I'm going to
be a violinist." Of course he
didn't but this was another
major memorable musical
moment. (That's just about a
tongue twister, huh!)
Another poignant memory
was in Washington, D.C.,
about 1940. My husband and
I were two of about 10,000
people who stood in front of
the Lincoln Memorial when
Marian Anderson sang "God
Bless America." Because of
her color she had been
refused admission to the
Constitution Hall.
Perhaps I should add one
last outstanding memory,
and that is hearing my friend
Rollin sing the patriotic songs
he loved and his favorite,
"Glory, Glory Halleluiah" in
his rich baritone voice.

Virginia Deupree is 92,
and almost totally blind. She

University, noted for its

Virginia was a city editor and
a columnist for many years,

Glaucoma: Are
you at risk?
Dear Savvy Senior,
My father lost his vision from
glaucoma 20 years ago and my
brother was recently diagnosed
with it last month. With this
strong family history of glauco-
ma, what can I do to protect my
eyesight? Seeing at 65
Dear Seeing,
Glaucoma is. the second-
leading cause of blindness in
the United States (after mac-
ular degeneration) but it
doesn't have to be. Here's
what you should know.
Glaucoma
Glaucoma is a group of
eye diseases that can damage
the optic nerve and cause
vision loss and blindness if
it's not treated. This typically
happens because the fluids&
in the eye don't drain proper-
ly, causing increased pres-


sure in the eyeball. The two
main types of glaucoma that
affect most people are:
Open-angle glaucoma:
This is the most common
form, accounting for around
80 percent of cases in the
U.S. This type progresses
very slowly when the eye's
drainage canals become
clogged over time, leading to
blind spots in the peripheral
vision, but by the time you
. notice it, the permanent
damage is already done.
Angle-closure glaucoma:
Occurs when the drainage
canal gets blocked, causing a
rapid increase in eye pres-
sure. Symptoms include nau-
sea, blurred vision and severe
pain. If you have these symp-
toms, get to an emergency
room immediately.
No symptoms
The problem with most
cases of glaucoma is there
are no symptoms, so most
people don't know (on their
own) if they have it until their
vision is impaired. That is
why it's very important to get
regular exams with your eye
doctor. While there's current-


ly no cure for glaucoma,
most cases can easily be
treated with medication
which can prevent further-
vision loss. If that doesn't
work, your doctor may rec-
ommend laser or eye surgery
or a combination of meth-
ods.
Riskfactors
It's estimated that more
than 3 million Americans
have glaucoma but only
about half of them know they
have it. Are you one of them?
Here are some key factors
that can increase your risks:
Age: While anyone can
get glaucoma, people over
the age of 60 are six times
more likely than those
younger.
Family history:
Unfortunately, glaucoma
tends to run in families.
Having a brother, sister or
parent with glaucoma
increases your risk of devel-
oping this disease by five
times.
Race: African-Americans
have a much higher risk of
developing glaucoma than
any other ethnic group. In


fact, between ages 45 and 65,
African-Americans are 15
times more likely to go blind
from glaucoma than
Caucasians in the same age
group. Hispanic-Americans
also have an increased risk of
developing glaucoma earlier
in life, and Asians also have a
higher risk for developing
angle-closure glaucoma.
Health conditions:
Diabetes, high blood pres-

sure, heart disease, migraine
headaches and even being
nearsighted can increase
your risk.
Medications: Studies
show that long-term use or
high-doses of steroid drugs
or cortisone can put you at a
higher risk.
Injury: An injury or trau-
ma to the eye can cause glau-
coma even years after it hap-
pened.
Savvy tips
The best way to protect
your eyesight from glaucoma
.is with early detection. If you
are age 45 and older and
have any risk factors, you
should get a comprehensive
eye examination at least


once every two years.
Medicare will pay 80 percent
for a dilated eye examination
every year for all beneficia-
ries at high risk for glaucoma,
but they don't cover treat-
ment cost. If you could use
some eye care help, a great
resource is EyeCare America.
A nationwide program that
provides free glaucoma eye
exams and treatment (if nec-
essary) to those who are
uninsured. They also offer a
"senior eye care program"
that provides free medical
eye care to all U.S. citizens,
age 65 and older, who have
not seen an ophthalmologist
in three or more years and
don't belong to an HMO or
theVA.

careamerica.org.

Statues in hand, we got
back in the car for the cir-
cuitous route to Amed, climb-
ing up into the mountainous
area near the volcanic Mount
Ayung. It last erupted in 1983
and rocks spewed out at that
time can still be seen on the
hillsides. As our driver negoti-
ated the twists and turns of
the hilly road, Heidi and I
aimed our cameras out of the
side windows of the car in an
effort to capture some of the
magnificent rain forest
scenery.
Occasionally there would
be a clearing with a view to a
valley below. Those hillsides
were always covered with rice
fields, which looked like so
many hand carved curving
steps. That is what they were,
the better to drain the water
from one step to another. In
places where the rice had
been recentlyharvested, giant
bags of the rice were on the
roadside awaiting pickup by
the processors. We also
noticed tiny raised platforms
in the fields. Roofs of coconut
palm leaves offered some
protection from the sun in
these semi-huts. We never
saw anyone in one of these
contrivances but decided
they must have been built for
mid-day respites.
In the wooded areas we
passed, there were rows of
banana trees, reaching for the
sun and carefully spaced.
Towns were few and far
between, especially up in the
mountains although we occa-
sionally saw school children
in their uniforms. Our driver
told us that all the children
wear uniforms and that there
are three different colors.
They might wear blue and
white on Monday and Tues-
day and red plaid on Wed-
nesday and Thursday. They
attend school Monday-Sat-
urday, riding in mini-van
buses or On motor scooters,
the number one vehicle used
in Bali. Younger children ride
on the back of scooters driven
by their older siblings. School
lets out earlier in the day than
in the United States. English is
taught to all the students.
Every once in a while we
got a glimpse the Indian
Ocean and think we must be
nearing Amed. We are wrong.
Instead we wind up and down
and around more curves,
sometimes heading west

away from the water. When
we do finally descend from
the last hillside into the town
of Amed, it is a total surprise.
A sign announcing the
local dive center lets us know
that we are in Amed. Then we
see the salt "factories" along
the coast, where the locals
spread sea water in large
square beds. When it evapo-
rates. the residue is'sea salt,
the chief product of Amed.
Diving, snorkeling and
tourism makes up the rest of
the economy, which was in
better shape than the rest of
Bali during our stay. The big
resort hotels were running at
less than 20 percent occupan-
cy during our stay in late
November and early Decem-
ber. At the infinitely smaller
Santai every villa was filled.
It was at Santai that we
noticed for the first time that
there were no other Ame-
ricans there. We heard English
being spoken but it was not
American English. At dinner
one night, we made a game of
guessing from whence our
fellow guests had come to
Bali. There were couples from
Hungary, Germany, Japan,

Venice Pines ~v


England and possibly France.
Here we all were, in the same
tiny little resort in Bali; dining
within a few feet of one
another. During World War II,
no two couples from that col-
lection of nationalities would
have been in the same room
for dinner unless it was a
prison or an interrogation
room.
Today's war is different and
the re ion that Balinese
tourism is down. After two
bombings, and warning from
the U.S. State Department
about traveling in Indonesia,
people are afraid.
While we had been mo-
mentarily afraid on our prior
visit when we -saw bonfires in
the streets, we were never
afraid on this trip. Security is
tight at the airport, in the
cities and at all the big hotels,
the places most likely to be
targeted by terrorists. In
places like Amed, where there
are no huge hotels nor big
nightclubs, we felt completely
safe safer than we would
feel in many places in the U.S.
Santai turned out to be a
*ik


little jewel of a place on that
jewel of an island. We had our
own little villa with a queen-
sized bed on the. main floor
and another above in the loft
area, which had a view of the
Indian Ocean from. a large
window. The marble-walled
bathroom was down two
steps from the main room. It
had a roof over half the room
but an open-air garden and
large walk-in shower that was
partly covered and partly
open to the sky, yet surround-
ed by a high wall for privacy.
We also had a front porch
with two chairs and a lounge.
Each morning a tea service
magically appeared just be-
fore we opened the door to
see if the weather was still
sunny and warm, even
though it was the beginning
of the rainy season. It rained
just one afternoon and eve-
ning.
The main room and loft
were air-conditioned. The
bath was not. The bath had all
the amenities of any resort -
fancy soaps and shampoos
and such but it did not have
hot water 24 hours per day.
Instead, we had to time our
showers between the hours of
9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Otherwise
the water would be a bit chilly.
Encouraged to sleep a little
later in order to have a hot
shower upon awakening, we
,did sleep later. -, v,',' n' ii
After our shoter, a'leiure-
ly breakfast of scrambled
eggs, bacon or ham for me
and nasi goreng for Heidi,
sometimes with a fruit pan-
cake on the side but always
with a frothy mango-orange
drink made from fresh fruit
right off the trees. As there
was no shopping except in
the hotel gift shop, there was
little to do save have another
Balinese massage, swim in
the pool, recline on a lounge
by the pool with a book or, if
the spirit moved us to strenu-
ous exercise, walk on the
rock-strewn beach. We did
that twice :once to take
photos of the fishing boats

and once while Heidi went
snorkeling with her dispos-
able underwater camera. She
had purchased new swim
shoes for the trip and they
proved useful on this beach.
beneath the rocks was black
volcanic sand.
Thus we passed our .five
days and four nights in Amed.
We each read about four
books, took hundreds of pic-
tures and, on the fourth day,
decided an outing to Am-
lapura was in order. I had bro-
ken my sunglasses and need-
ed to replace them. Amla-
pura, 30 minutes away by taxi,
was the only place where we
were likely to find new ones.
With a driver whose Eng-
lish consisted of little more
than "Hello" off we went. He
took us to the shopping areas,
to several temples and to two
different water gardens before
bringing us back to Amed. I
found my glasses, bargained
hard to reduce the price from
*what I though was $42 but
was actually $2, eventually
buying the glasses for 18,000
Rupiah or $1.80. Only
when we were in the car on
our way back to Amed, did I
realize what I had paid and
that I should have bought 10
pair. Oh well.
Almost as if the gods were
sad we would be leaving
Amed the next day, the skies
opened that evening and we
used an umbrella as we
walked from our villa to din-
ner.
The next morning was
sunny again. We enjoyed the
pool one last time before get-
ting in the car for the ride to
Nusa Dua. We had the same
driver so we concentrated on
taking more photos from the
car window as he negotiated
the winding roads. When we
arrived in Nusa Dua, he asked

again the name of the hotel
and soon we were at another
security gate like the one out-
side the Ritz-Carlton. Again
there were guards ',checking
the car for explosives and
again they wanted to look at
us, the passengers. The pro-
cess took about two minutes
and then we were on our way
again, driving into the hotel
parking lot where we trans-
ferred to another golf cart for
the trip to the main l6bby area
for check in. We waved good-
