A question of checks and balances


The Charter Review Committee hears from the
city manager and city attorney on possible
changes to Venice's "constitution."


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


SUN PHOTO BY GREG GILES
If you love all things Italian, Venice is the place for you this
weekend. The 18th annual Venice Italian Feast and
Carnival kicked off Thursday evening. It runs through
Monday at Venice Municipal Airport grounds. Starts 4 p.m.
on Friday. Saturday, Sunday and Monday events start at
noon and run into the evening. Admission is free. Parking
is $3.


City Attorney Bob Ander-
son has complete faith that
.City Manager Marty Black, his
fellow charter officer, will
never illegally spend city
money.
That doesn't mean other
city managers haven't tried to
do that. Anderson, who's
been, the city attorney for
nearly 17 years, could think of


several times where a finance
director refused to issue a
check to two different city
managers.
And in each of those situa-
tions, the finance director
was glad he answered to
Venice City Council instead of
the city manager.
"I will tell you, there have
been city managers that have
asked finance directors to
write checks they didn't feel
comfortable with," Anderson


told Charter Review Commit-I
tee members Thursday.
"I can tell you, checks and
balances have come into play
where a finance director said,
'I'm not going to write you
that check.'"
No opinion
It was the second meeting
for the committee, which is
considering four revisions to
the city charter the consti-
tution for Venice:
Make the finance director
an employee of the city man-
ager.
Allow the city manager to
fire and discipline the police


and fire chiefs.
Allow internal manage-
ment and finance audits
without council approval.
Alter term limits for a
council member who wants
to become mayor.
Black was asked by mem-
bers to give a report on all
four topics and offer his opin-
ion. Black supports the audit
proposal and changes to
police and fire chiefs, which
only city council members
have the power to do.
But the city manager did

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber.
EILEEN DUREN


Saturday marks the 59th
anniversary of Venice's law
that created the "colored
quarters," now known as
Grove Terrace Apartments.
Not much has changed
since 1947, according to
'Carter Canada, president ,of
the Venice Housing Authority
Residents Council.
Canada voiced resident
opposition to the demolition
and redevelopment of the
housing complex during
Thursday night's VHA meet-
ing.
Among their charges are
how residents have been sys-
tematically excluded from the
planning process that's lining
the pockets of developers and
creating worse buildings than
what's there now.
Canada also claimed that
Executive Director Peter
Lopez has violated at least 10
federal laws by excluding the
residents on the redevelop-
ment plan. He also claimed

LOTTO..


Lopez lied on applications,
where the executive director
wrote that the residents
council endorsed the demoli-
tion plan.
"That's a.bold-faced lie,"
Canada said. "The residents
and the residents council
were excluded from the entire
proposal you have in front of
you."P
The challenges come just
two weeks after VHA submit-
ted its application for Low-
Income Housing Tax Credit
financing that would fund
demolition and replacement
of the current 50 apartments
with 72 new units.
A review of the application
revealed the apartments
would be made of cheaper
materials and that 42 percent
of the $11.3 million price tag
would go toward developer
fees, as was first reported
inside the Feb. 12 Venice
Gondolier Sun.
Many residents and even
Venice City Council have
since come out questioning
the project. Thursday night's


,regular VHA board meeting
brought a full house that
included many neighbors.
Pastor James Mitchell of
Union Missionary Baptist
Church, which is next to
Grove Terrace, grew up in the
area and once lived in Grove
Terrace. He stands opposed
to the redevelopment plan
because, once again, people's
voices are being ignored.
Mitchell said it's the 1947
segregation law all over again,
that threatened fines and jail
if any "negro" lived outside of
the "colored quarters." Own-
ership was turned over to
VHA in the late 60s, after the
law was repealed, to create
the housing complex.
"It's definitely happening
again," Mitchell said. "It's
dead wrong. ... This place
was to better people. But it's
like the Indian reservations.
You give them the promise,
then you take it away."
Canada spoke for 25 min-
utes, highlighting the 11-page
report detailing all of the vio-
lations he's accused Lopez of

New jail being built already overcrowded


Did you notice how small
the full moon looked this
week?
Maybe the cold shrank it.
After all, cold causes things
to shrink and sink. Warmth
causes things to expand and
rise.
That's why a hot air balloon
swells and soars while a cold
air balloon lies limp on the
ground. It's also why your car
tires "lost" air this week.
But science says the moon
didn't shrink. Its orbit around
the earth is not perfectly cir-
cular, so it's always moving
toward or away from us. This
past week, it moved farthest
away. That's why it looked so
small.

STAFF REPORT
The Sarasota County
Commission moved Tuesday
to relieve overcrowded con-
ditions in its jail facilities.
Sheriff. Jimmy D. Hard-
castle went before the com-
mission .to seek permission
to house prisoners in facili-
ties owned by the city of
Sarasota.
Hardcastle told The Gon-
dolier the jail is presently
housing 155 prisoners. The
rnew jail, being biilJ r at a cost
of $4.5 million, is designed


to house only 132 prison-
ers.
Until Tuesday, Hardcastle
had housed the prisoners
with the city, paying its $3
per prisoner per day food
fees.
"My budget can't take any
more. We have to get funding
from the commissioners" he
said. The commission agreed
to pay the per diem cost of
nine prisoners.
Hardcastle said the county
would have to renovate the,
third floor'bf the old'Sarasota.
Courthouse for prisoners in


addition to the new building
to meet the current needs.
The third floor was to have
been for courts and jurists
offices, but Hardcastle said
his needs are too pressing.
The jail is part of a project
started by the county over
the objections of South
County voters.
Originally voters were told
the project would cost only
$1.2 million. That cost was
for county administrative
offices only. Cost of remod-
eling the court building and
the new jail made the project
closer to $8 million.
It is now believed the pro-


ject will cost closer to $12
million and will be over-
crowded the day it is com-
pleted. A large part of the
cost is due to land purchases
needed for parking.
Despite the new parking,
the county still needs addi-
tional parking space. Hard-
castle said his detectives
have been warned they will
receive tickets for parking
on Ringling Boulevard.
"Where else can they go?"
the sheriff asked.
The county had been of-
fered 50 acres of free land in
Osprey by Mode, a develop-
ment company.

Residents complain about businesses' growth


Whether they've "intensified" or "expanded," two
Venice-area businesses have got their neighbors
in North Port Estates very upset.


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR


City commissioners know
there's a problem with non-
conforming businesses in
North Port Estates. They're
just not sure how to deal with
them.
The commissioners held a
special public meeting Wed-
nesday night at the North
Port Performing Arts Center
to discuss zoning code is-
sues. About 200 residents
came to discuss problems
with businesses in the resi-
dential area.
Although the area is zoned
for. residential and agricult-
ural uses only, some busi-
nesses that were in place
before the zoning ordinances
were adopted are being al-
lowed to operate there.
Residents of the area are
angry that some of those
businesses have expanded
and little or nothing seems
to have been done about it
by the city. Martin's Septic ser-
vice business, for instance, has
increased the number of busi-
ness trucks parked on its
property.
Steven Rose, who lives on
Tropicaire across from the
septic tank company, read a
memo from the city's attorn-
ey stating that 'it would not
be a code violation if there
were 100 trucks there.' "
"Who are you kidding?" he
asked. "That would be a truck
stop."
Rose said, "I moved out to
that area to live in the coun-
try. I didn't want to live in an
industrial park."
"This. isn't funny any
more," he added.
He also quoted a letter
from Sam Jones, the city's


director of planning and zon-
ing, noting that for the
septic tank business to park
vehicles outside of the origi-
nally designated area was an
expansion of a nonconform-
ing use.
No one from the septic
business spoke during the
public meeting.
Hector Mufioz said he has
a small business that he built'
in North Port.
"The city has profited
from those small businesses,"
Mufioz said. "They support a
lot of jobs and those small
businesses built this city."
North Port Building Direc-
tor Scott Williams said that
the city must distinguish be-
tween "expansion" and "in-
tensification." He said that a
company that was in exis--
tence when the zoning code
was adopted is allowed to
continue the same type of
business, at the same level,
because it is an "existing non-
conforming use" allowed by
the code.
"But a business cannot
expand into new businesses,"
Williams said.
With regard to the septic
company, he said, there are
no current violations.
The septic business filed a
site plan in the late 1980s
depicting a building, a parking
area for six cars and areas for
storage of septic business
materials. The plan did not
show how many trucks the
company had.
"The fact that the number
of trucks has increased is not
necessarily a violation or an
unlawful expansion," said
Williams.
City attorney Robert Rob-
inson concurred.


'It's a duck'
Williams and Jones noted
several problems with the
city's current code.
"There are ways we could
change our code to start
phasing out some of these
nonconforming businesses,"
Jones said. "The code could
provide that if a noncon-
forming business is inactive
for a certain period of time,
or it is more than 50 percent
destroyed by hurricane or fire,
we could say they can no
longer operate. These are
some things to consider."
Williams also said that
when a company was found
to have several violations,
they were consolidated into
a single violation and as-
sessed a fine of $500 a day,
rather than treating each
violation as a separate offense
with a separate fine.
Commissioner Barbara
Gross proposed that staff be
directed to draft code amend-
ments forcing a noncon-
forming business to close if it
were inactive for more than
183, days. She also proposed
an amendment to prohibit
consolidating multiple viola-
tions so that businesses
would be assessed separate
fines for each one. Both
motions passed.
Gross also asked that staff
give some recommendations
on steps such as landscap-
ing, buffer requirements and
similar methods' to make
nonconforming businesses
less offensive to nearby resi-
dents.
"We are concerned with
how these business might be
reducing the property values
of the residents there," she
said.
Commissioner Fred Tower
said, "We want to encourage
co-existence out there. We
realize we can't just remove
these businesses, but we hope
that they would be
good neighbors."

House bill addresses home insurance concerns


BY BARRY MILLMAN
STAFF WRITER

Several of the state House's
top leaders gathered in the
Capitol Monday to unveil
comprehensive legislation
they said will address some
of the most frustrating
insurance-related shortfalls
homeowners have faced
since a flurry of hurricanes
began battering the peninsula
18 months ago.
The measures contained
in the multifaceted proposal
seek to strengthen existing
and future Florida homes to
make them more hurricane-
resistant; improve the quality
of service received by home-
owners covered by Citizens
Insurance, the state-subsi-
dized insurer of last resort;
and place Floridians at the
head of the line for Citizens'
state-subsidized insurance
savings.
"Unprecedented storm
seasons have been joined
with other market forces,
placing a stress on Florida
homeowners," said House
Insurance Committee Chair-
man Dennis Ross, R-Lake-
land, at a press conference
held just outside the cham-
ber's door.. "This proposal
encourages storm readiness
through a mitigation endow-
ment to encourage damage
prevention improvements,
reforms the Citizens Insur-
ance Corporation that serves
as the state's insurer-of-last-
resoxt, and creates incentives
f o r
private insurers to return to
the Florida market."
"The hurricanes of 2004
and 2005 demonstrated that
no region of our state is ex-
empt from storm damage,"
said House Speaker Pro
Tempore Leslie Waters,, R-
Seminole. "While we can't
prevent the storms from
striking, we can and should
encourage -Floridians to bet-
ter prepare and protect their
homes. The damage-preven-'
tion incentives in. this legisla-
tion will empower Floridians
to use vital storm-proofing
options."
The bill
Key points of the bill,
which House leaders said they
would push hard for passage
of during the legislative ses-
sion beginning next month,
include:
Appropriating $100 mil-
lion to create a hurricane
damage prevention fund
that homeowners could tap
for interest-free loans to
strengthen their existing
homes against hurricane
damage.
Requiring all new homes
in Florida, no matter where
they are located, to meet the
most stringent, construction
codes for hurricane protec-
tion and wind-resistance
features.
Requiring all private in-
surers doing business in the
state to service claims cur-
rently underwritten by Citi-
zens, and reimbursing the
insurers for doing so.
Restructuring Citizens'
pool of insured properties so
only those that are the pri-
mary residences of Floridians
enjoy the benefit of taxpayer-
funded subsidies.
Requiring all Citizens'
workers and executives to
meet the same code of ethics
as state workers and their
bosses.
Positive beginning

the House proposal offered

more storms, then we've all

Hammock


could be first


urban 'green' buy


BY BOB ARDREN
PELICAN PRESS

Circus Hammock, at 22.2
acres one of the largest unde-
veloped pieces of land in the
city of Sarasota, will be con-
sidered by the county com-
mission next week for pur-
chase in the Environmentally
Sensitive Lands Protection
Program.
The heavily wooded tract
is located between the Bobby
Jones Golf Course on the
south and west and the 17th
Street Park across from the
Meadows to the east nearly
all within the city.
According to the county's
staff report, the site contains
unusual vegetation such as
magnolia and dogwood
species that are normally
only found in northern
Florida.
Circus Hammock had long
been under consideration for
the land protection program
but was dropped from con-
sideration last year when the
owners, Steven and Eva
Berkes, announced they did
not wish to take part in the
program.
The couple changed their
minds recently, however, and
are now offering the property
to the county through The
Nature Conservancy at a
price below its appraisal,
according to the Conser-
vancy's Ed Freeman.


Rumors only
If purchased, the two
parcels constituting Circus
Hammock would complete
a city and county-owned
urban public lands corridor
from Fruitville and Beneva
roads northeast to near
17th Street and Honore
Avenue.
Appraisals total $3.6 mil-
lion for the two parcels.
However, the owners of the
property have agreed to the
county's offer of $3,256,420,
or $147,083 per acre. The
commission is scheduled to
make a decision on the pur-
chase Feb. 21.
Over the past year there
were persistent rumors the
land was being considered
for development a plan
that, if true, obviously did
not come to fruition.
City officials have long
complained that while city
taxpayers pay into the coun-
ty's Environmentally Sensi-
tive Lands Protection Pro-
gram, none of that money
has been spent in the city in
the past.
Last year voters in both
the city and county approved
the Sarasota County Forever
program, however $100 mil-
lion of the program's $250
million is earmarked for pur-
chasing park space a
change that appears to see
some of that money used in
the city.

Region's water woes discussed


Water supply gap options are focused
on three options, including the Carlton Reserve.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


The gap between how
much water will be available
in the next several years and
how much water will be
needed is growing.
To solve this problem, ex-
perts with the Peace River/
Manasota Regional Water
Supply Authority have some
ideas.
Authority board members
discussed some of those ideas
at their monthly meeting.
Consultants with the au-
thority were able to identify
three key sources of water, at
the North Port, Punta Gorda
and Carlton. Reserve water
treatment plants.
The shortfall above the
amount the existing water
authority treatment plant on
Kings Highway in DeSoto
County can currently supply
is estimated at 5 million gal-
lons per day by 2009, accord-
ing to Terry Holcomb of HDR
Inc., a consulting firm for the
authority.
The current contracted
capacity of the authority is
about 18 million gallons a
day. By 2009, the demand


will reach about 23 million
gallons, Holcomb said.
The post-expansion new
capacity of up to 48 million
gallons per day at the treat-
ment plant on Kings High-
way is not expected to be
available until 2010.
Authority Executive Direc-
tor Patrick Lehman said' us-
ing the sources that are
available for short-term use
is crucial to meeting the
water supply needs of the
entire area.
Each county in the au-
thority Charlotte, Sarasota,
DeSoto and Manatee pro-
vided the authority with a
projection of water demand
between now and when the
expansion is scheduled to be
completed.
With growth at record
rates throughout the region,
each government expects its

population to increase dra-
matically, and the demand
for water will naturally fol-
low.
When the expansion at the
Kings Highway plant is com-
pleted, the $132 million plant
will have an average capacity
of 48 million gallons per
day.

^^~"' www, .ana~lS~ii


But before then, the au-
thority is forced to look for
outside sources of water.
Holcomb said by 2007,
there will be a gap of about
1 million gallons a day, in-
creasing to about 4 million
gallons in 2008 and 5 million
gallons by 2009.
The authority already has
interconnecting pipelines
that link to the supplies in
North Port and Carlton. With
those connections and corre-
sponding interlocal agree-
ments in place, buying about
3 million gallons from the
two plants is expected to be a
natural part of doing busi-
ness.
No such interconnection
exists between the authority
and Punta Gorda, however.
Charlotte County, Punta
Gorda and the water author-
ity are working to create an
interlocal agreement to allow
a water line to connect to the
city's water supply. The au-


thority would then buy up to
2 million gallons to fill the
gap until its treatment plant
is completed.
Such an agreement is
expected to be negotiated in
the coming months, but
Lehman admitted there is no
formal time frame for a deal
to be struck.
In case demand exceeds
expectations, Holcomb said,
the authority continues to
seek alternate sources of
water.
The three alternatives pre-
sented Wednesday represent
the most obvious choices,
but other sources are being
considered.
' The board was not asked
to accept any plan at its
meeting, but only received
the update as to where au-
thority staff was looking for
the needed water.

had a reputation of violations

Thomas said. "That, in fact,

and the plea was accepted
Dec. 14, 2005. Venice paid the
minimum in fines of
$110,000, opened itself up to
stricter regulations and com-
mitted to helping prosecute
the individuals responsible.
In the shade meeting,
Mayor Dean Calamaras ques-

"So we're not being

said.
Venice's attorneys said the
government had brought
only the "slam-dunk" charges
it could prove, and avoided
allegations of coverups,
obstruction of justice and
environmental damage.
Further investigations and
witness testimony could have
led to those charges and
stiffer fines.
As for environmental
impact, Sarasota County
waived restitution on Knights
Trail Park if the city accepted
the plea deal, which was good
news. The water is disinfected

dechlorinated byproducts
remaining in the water are
considered to be carcino-

Sign up to bid before holiday, Fisher says


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

If you're planning to sign
up as a new bidder for the
North Port lot auction,
Monday's bank holiday might
be a problem for you.
Fisher Auction Co. is advis-
ing people and businesses
wanting to sign up as a new
bidder that they do so by
today (Friday). That is be-
cause you must have a
cashier's check in the amount
of $5,000 for each lot on
which you plan to bid, and
banks will be closed for
President's Day on Monday,
Feb. 20 which is the day
Session 3 closes.

LIVE AUCTION
POSTPONED
Due to the success of the
online auction of publicly
owned lots in North Port, offi-
cials with the city and Sarasota
County have decided to post-
pone the live auction sched-
uled for Feb. 28 at North Port
High School.
"Given the uncertainty that
any lots will remain unsold
and because we're meeting
with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service in a few days for input
on the 223 lots held back due
to scrub jay concerns, it makes
sense to postpone the live
auction," said Terry Gilbert,
project manager for lot auc-
tion.
The live auction has been
moved to April 4 at North Port
High School. The live auction
will offer all remaining lots for
sale.


The next event will be a live
auction at 7 p.m. on Tuesday,
April 4, at the North Port
Performing Arts Center. All
properties not bought in the
three on-line sessions will be
auctioned in group-of five or-
more lots that evening......
Only 24 lots remained
unsold after the first two ses-
sions; those lots are available
in the current session. There
are an additional 223 lots city
and county officials withheld
from the auction, pending
input from the Fish and
Wildlife Senice on their scrub

Session 1 stats
FisherAuction Co. released
statistics from Session 1 of the
online auction. The company
tabulated data on the num-


ber of bids each sold lot
received.
Lot 1575 received the most
bids (142) and sold for the
second-highest price -
$79,500 in Session 1. It was
purchased by Sunbelt Realty.


Lot 1574 had the second-
highest number of bids (134)
and sold for $80,000 (the
highest price for any Session
1 lot) to Murdock Realty.
About 25 percent of the
lots (122) were bought by


individuals. Most of the 482
lots sold in Session 1 went to
realty or development com-
panies.
The total of the bid prices
of all sold Session 1 lots was
$16,508,800, compared with


the starting-bid sum of
$12,482,100, a difference of
$4,026,700.

OUR VIEW



County should aid effort to save WMS creek


F or years, a handful of concerned,
deeply dedicated Warm Mineral
Springs residents have been fighting
to save the small, quiet little creek that flows
out of the warm waters of the ancient spring
just east of Ortiz Boulevard.
This beautiful, winding, tree-lined stretch
of what many consider to be therapeutic
water, flows a mile or 2 to the state-protected
Myakka River. The warm, overgrown creek
(some call it a river) has long been a natural
wintering spot for families of endangered
manatees, which need a quiet place to pro-
duce their offspring.
Some longtime residents, such as Ray
Stoner, have tried to bring the creek's plight
to the county's attention for 20 years.
Stoner and his friends, other retired military
veterans, have worked hundreds of hours
cleaning debris from the stream without a


penny of reimbursement or support.
Recently Sarasota County announced it
was buying nearly a third of an acre near the
stream, part of the county's effort to purchase
and protect environmentally important
places. That is a start.
Recentlyfourcountyenvironmental officials
accepted an invitation from Stoner and the Sun
papers to visit the small creek, not only to view
what the county had purchased, but other
things that require county attention.
.Two environmental specialists, Howard
Bemrna and Joseph J. Krause, took notes on
problems and violations.
Their visit included observing an area that
had been environmentally damaged by a
bulldozer. Two second-hand pieces of culvert
had been placed in a water-filled ditch that
flows into the creek.
The culverts had been capped by piles of


dirt the bulldozer had dug out of either side
of the ditch. In a heavy rain, sediment would
have washed down into the stream, which
long has been littered with trash. Stoner and
his friends constantly clean the stream bed.
This time the county acted swiftly. Two
weeks after the visit by Berna and Krause, a
county heavy equipment operator, Walter
Barnes, arrived at the creek's edge with a
huge, extraordinarily efficient, Swedish-
made ditch excavator called a Menzi Muck.
Barnes removed the dirt from the top of
the culvert and then lifted the large pipes into
the back of a city truck. Carefully Barnes
sculpted the banks and then moved a seven-
foot-high pile of earth someone had stacked
nearby to fill in the wide, deep scar in the
land.
Dump trucks arrived with dark, rich top-
soil and helped Barnes finish the job. On


Thursday a crew returned with sod for the
sloped bank.
There is more to do along the little creek.
Homes are being built under county permits
within a few feet of the water's edge. The con-
stant hammering and the noise of cement
trucks dumping their loads must be unset-
tling for the peace-loving manatees.
More of the creek bank needs to be pur-
chased and rescued. An effort needs to be
made to keep the water flowing, and more
deep pools for the manatee would help pro-
tect them.
Stoner and the other volunteers are willing
to continue to do the job, which must be done
by hand to protect the river. But they wish the
county would provide a modest grant
Considering the work they have already
done to save the important little creek, we
believe their request is reasonable.

Attend a RS FROM OUR READERS


Attend a meeting or don't complain


Editor:
After listening to our city council members and mayor last
night, I think I understand why so few people attended the
Venice Town Hall Meeting. I'm guessing they feel it is no use.
They feel that the big boys are calling the shots and the average
citizen is only given the appearance his opinion accounts.
Case in point is council member Simmonds' remark that we
people are mistaking the view of our friends to be representa-
tive of the majority opinion. Mr. Willson, and Mr. Calamaras
seemed to agree with Mr. Simmpnds.
Well, Mr. Simmonds, Mr. Willson and Mr. Calamaras, I think
that you think you know what the majority wants because you
listen to your friends, the influential people of this community.
If you really wanted to know, you could conduct an opinion
poll., .'
It was very obvious Mr. Calamaias thinks Waterford devel-
oper Mr. Miller is doing Venice a favor by building the proposed
condos. I reached this conclusion after I heard the mayor
instruct us that if Mr. Miller weren't such a nice guy he could
build an industrial complex on the land he owvns on Venice
island.
I intend to be at the next meeting even though I suspect
Mr. Miller's plans for Venice afe a shoo-in- because it will give
me the right to complain when Venice becomes another

Editor:
If you go out in the a.m. or
p.m., you will have to weave
in and out of the numerous
doggies taking their human
pets for a walk. Let's look at it
from their viewpoint:
OK, off of the couch, time
to exercise. Get a good grip on
the leash and I'll lead the way.
Well, what will it be, the park,
or our neighbor's manicured
front yard? Doesn't matter,
because you will scoop it up
with your pooper-scooper.
You did bring the scooper,
didn't you? You didn't! Youl
jerk! What a way to treat your,


neighbors!
You know what happens
when your neighbor steps
into a pile, and tracks it into
the house before knowing
what that horrible smell is.
That stream of foul expletives
is directed at me from your
neighbor, when you are the
jerk who is responsible.
You not only infringed
upon your good neighbor,
but you broke the law. A plas-
tic bag or a Florida snow
shovel will do; ignorance will
not. And they call you my
"master." Ha. Get a life.

Parallels between Iraq



and Sarasota County


DICK WINDGASSEN
GUEST COLUMNIST


Stories about problems in
war-tom Iraq abound in the
national news. Local news
focuses on problems in rela-
tively peaceful and prosper-
ous Sarasota County.
We mock the shortcomings
of Third World countries like
Iraq, yet excuse often similar
behavior from our own lead-
ers. A failure in the democrat-
ic process is a failure any-
where and at any level of gov-
ernment.
Let's compare Iraq and
Sarasota County.
Both were once sustain-
able agricultural regions.
Many believe that Iraq was
home to that paradise, the
Garden of Eden. Many leaders
in Sarasota think the county
will remain paradise, and
accept the lie that the tree of
growth will maintain eternal
good life.
Once at peace, Iraq may
squander its only resource,
oil, ia single generation to
benefit the wealthy and out-.
siders. Sarasota County is al-
ready squandering its only
resource, a beautiful coastal
area. Perhaps 20 years down
the road, both Iraq and'
Sarasota County will find that
lots of sunshine alone is a
poor selling point when sun-
ny regions are not in short
supply worldwide:- -`-z-
MT home region of western
Pennsylvania is dotted with
the remains of towns that sold
off their coal and oil resources
in a few decades. Pittsburgh
believed growth in manufac-
turing would last forever, pol-
lution or not. Now the young

leave for decent jobs. Re-
maining good jobs are in hos-
pitals, fueled by Medicare
payments, and surviving uni-
versities. Housing is real
cheap.
We are shocked at the
death of civilians along roads
in Iraq. Yet when a death in
Sarasota County is blamed on
poor or overused roadways,
we calmly accept it without
fanfare as a cost of growth.
We often note that foreign-
ers and local people in Iraq
take funds that should benefit
that nation's residents, while
officials look the other way. In
Sarasota County, much of the
profit for growth along the
coast goes to the wealthy
while those who cut our
lawns and bandage our
wounds must make longer
and longer commutes from
less-desirable areas.
I have yet to hear an elect-
ed official express violent out-
rage when a developer forces
his local voters to move out of
a manufactured home site to
make room for wealthy out-
of-staters, who say the poor
shouldn't be living along the
coast.
Saddam's many palaces
may yet serve Iraq as muse-
ums, just as the Ringling
estate now serves Sarasota
County. What benefit the
county can expect from the
coastal high-rises and sprawl
growth is never discussed.
The Kurds, Shiites and
Sunnis compete for power,
forgetting that the average
inhabitant would happily ac-
cept united Iraq with peace
and prosperity. In Sarasota
County three cities are pro-
moting excess growth to
make sure they get their
"share" of it.
The city of Sarasota be-
liev*s future tourists';\will en-
)}oy spending their' thmil
vacation walking in the shade
of tall.condos, visiting muse-,
ums and shopping at nation-
al chain stores.
North Port wishes to be-


FEtv '


come the Miami of the west
coast.
Venice is not through with
its annexation binge yet, and
the county has complained to
the state that Venice keeps
increasing population density
on newly annexed land.
Saddam spent lavishly in
Iraq and then taxed the citi-
zens. Governments in Sara-
sota County failed to collect
sufficient growth impact fees,
and now ask, with a straight
face, "How will we pay for
growth?" The answer, which
they knew all along, is to tax
the current residents.
'Smart governments, like
good businesses, use accu-
rate accounting and frequent
audits to make sure they are
not succumbing to the lure of
fast, easy, but not profitable,
business and growth.
In the 10 years I've lived
here, every poll has shown
that residents believe growth
rates are excessive. Yet rarely
have I heard an elected offi-
cial state that, because he was
elected to oppose growth,
he'll do everything to oppose
it, unless an independent
auditor publicly shows that it'
will directly benefit his voters.
Indeed, some of our offi-
cials have publicly stated they
are not obligated to fulfill
their voter's' wishes, even
though, since America is a
republic, that's what they are
'supposed to do.
Of course, Iraq also called
itself a republic and Saddam
did exactly as he pleased.
That's not a good model for
Sarasota County.
Let's hope that if George
Bush restores order and de-
mocracy in Iraq, it becomes a
republic, with leaders who
fully respect the voters and
lead them into prosperity.

LET 'EM HAVE IT! SI SHOULD 'TAu TO :


Step up to fund waterway trail work


Finish trail. Why don't you have the city and county and all
the foundations get together and complete the Venetian
Waterway Park trail from its present terminus almost to the
Circus Bridge from the Venice Train Depot? Completion of this
segment of the trail will allow one to bike, walk, hike or inline
skate from the Venice Train Depot, use the underpass at the
Circus Bridge and proceed all the way down to Caspersen
Beach and park. What a fabulous experience it will be the
sooner the better.


Waste of money. I'd like to
agree with the article in which
Mr. Thaxton stated about the
Venice Avenue Bridge that
once they start painting
bridges; they'll be painting all
the bridges. It would be a
waste of money. Venice Ave-
1nue Bridge has not been
'painted in all these years and
'it would be a waste of money.
Also, on Saturday on Baypoint
in Nokomis, the Nokomis
Volunteer Fire Department
had the city of North Port
there. Five units were in No-
komis in a residential area.
They were burning and prac-
ticing less than 20 feet from a
home in Baypoint. The noise,
the diesel very poor taste.
That operation needs to be
moved out of there or regulat-
ed by Sarasota County. Also,
on Collins Road in Laurel, I
would hope the sheriff would
put more officers and make
maybe a substation at the
Terry recreation center. It is
needed at that location to
help curb some of the prob-
lems in that area.
Move forward. I have three
small ones. Number one is
community: We need to do
the right thing. Venice Police
Department: If there is a qual-
ified female, we should hire a
qualified female. I think the
time.is right and we should go
for it. It would be a great asset
to the community. Also, the
water tank at Eagle Point
should be saved. We're send-
ing a bad message if we don't
uphold the standards and
preserve our historical build-
ings. The final subject is mi-
Trorities-Ift's time'for the Ven-
ice Fire Department to hire a
minority, a black minority. It's
about time. Sarasota County
has a black chief. It's been too
many years this has been let
go without being corrected.
Out to dry. This message is
for the stupid law enforce-
ment people and the stupid
news people that continue to
talk about this poor girl who
was underage driving her kids
and so forth to school. She
was driving perfectly legiti-
mately; she stopped behind a
school bus as she should. The
school bus is lerting people off
and that jerk in the tractor-
trailer, in the 18-wheeler goes
plowing into them. Let's focus
on that jerk in the tractor-
trailer and see how long it's
going to take for them to hang
him out to dry.
Time better spent, In re-
gard to the two' young ladies
who brought the charges of
animal cruelty to the atten-
tion of the animal welfare
department, may I make a
comment? First, all charges or
criticism were found to be
untrue. May I suggest that


people like this please spend
their time helping humanity?
There is 'so much child mo-
lestation, abuse, pornography
that needs to be addressed. If
you have so much time, work
at lawmakers and all politi-
cians to make stiffer laws in
this regard. Sexual abuse of all
females of all ages is rampant.
So, do something about that
first. As' the good book says,
love thy neighbor. So do
something about them. Then
you can worry about the ani-
mals.
Where's the flag? There
must have been more than
100 people,at Monday's band
concert at the community
center. We all stood up for the
national anthem, but looking
at the stage, there was no flag.
I hope this can be corrected.
Poor planning. I see in the
morning's Gondolier Sun
"Nightmare on Miami Ave-
nue" and that nightmare hap-
pens to be a traffic jam. Of
course the traffic is the result
of Venice Elementary School
being built on the island of
Venice. This traffic jam will be
part of the scene forever; you
might as well figure out a way
to deal with it. This is another
example of poor planning.
School board, city of Venice,
whoever else had to approve
this, are the ones to thank for
the mess.
The new elementary
school was placed on the
island even though 95 percent
of the teachers, the, students
and the supporting, staff do
not live on the island. To add
insult to in.,.i', no\v dhere is
some doubt as to whether the
school will be used as a hurri-
cane shelter. Again, this was
deliberately created through
poor planning by the folks
who want more money so
they can do more poor plan-
ning.
All the way. About Pres-
ident Bush's State of the
Union Address, it seems that I
heard pretty much the same
thing when President Nixon
was in office. We're oil addicts
and we need to find an alter-
native source of power.
Thirty-five years later and
nothing's changed. I think as
long as the oil companies
have their lobbyists and their
gift-giving power and their
millions of dollars, nothing


will ever change. We might as
well get used to paying high
prices and being dependent
on our enemies for foreign oil.
Speaking of, it even pretty
much says in the Bible that if
you're going to go and try to
conquer a land, you need to
go in and take- everything.
Unfortunately, innocent
women and children fall into
that category. America thinks
it's too high and mighty to go
in and do this. What they
should have done is just go
into Iraq and just take over
the whole country, including
the oil, rather than just having
our.boys die over there week-
ly and daily, and getting no
further ahead. We're no fur-
ther ahead than we were a'
couple years back. It's just
time that we do. something.
This is another Vietnam,
whether you know it or not.
Things have to change. If
you're going to go to war, go
all the way.
Where to go? I was just
reading the Gondolier Sun
and noticed that the skate
park on Center Road has been
closed indefinitely while con-
struction begins on new
South County Family YMCA
facility. My question is, the
city contributed $100,000,
plus another $100,000 from
somebody else. Now the
park's shut down, where are
the kids supposed to go and
have fun? You people are
complaining that the kids
down here on skateboards are
tearing up the parks in the
city, but you just closed their
park, so what are they sup-
posed to do now? Think about
it,
What's the deal? I'm con-
fused about the information
that you've been printing in
your paper. You said that the
school system already receiv-
es tens of millions of dollars
from the 10-year sales tax and
,,oyv in toda-'3..paper you said
that the sale of North Portlots
will raise millions of dollars
for our schools. And then the
referendum next month will
bring up to a quarter of a bil-
lion dollars for our school sys-
tem. When is enough
enough? Every four years are
we going to be asked to give
up more money? What's the
deal here? They seem to be
getting a lot of money, plus
the state keeps increasing the
budget of education so, what's
being done to spend the
money wisely?
Rain? Please would some-
body answer in the- paper
when Venice got six inches of
rain in January? I can't re-
member any amount of rain
in January. Thanks.

Pretzel King abdicating his throne


1BY BOB ARDREN
PELICAN PRESS

The King of Pretzels, he of
the twisted bread and, later,
huge dill pickles, is retiring.
Early one March Thursday
morning in 1977 Jack
Hoffman and I stood looking
into the back seat of his car,
which was crammed with
huge plastic bags filled with
fresh pretzels, 'and wondered
what was to become of them
all.
It was opening day of the
Second Annual Ringling Mu-
seums/New College Medieval
Fair a new event for both of
us. I was the new public
affairs director at the muse-
um charged with promot-
ing the fair and Jack was
inventing the Pretzel King
character.
"I'd stopped in at the then-
Bagel Inn, mentioned the
upcoming Medieval Fair and
the inn's owner suggested
he'd make pretzels if I'd sell
them," Hoffman related. "So I
ordered 40 dozen."


The remarkable thing that
March morning was that after
the two of us in our goofy
Medieval Fair costumes stood
and stared at that huge pile of
pretzels in the back seat of his
car, he went out onto the fair-
grounds and sold every one of
them.
A new career was born. In
later years at the fair he sold
as many as 100 dqzen during
the four-day run .on the
museum grounds and no,
he has no idea how many
pretzels he's sold over the
years at fairs, parades, rodeos
and other public festivals.
They originally sold for 50
cents each but the price has
risen to $2 these days. At
school and charity events
such as Sailor Circus, Hoff-
man always gave back at least
25 percent of his proceeds to
the event.
Staying power
Jack, now 83, had "retired"
to Sarasota on the advice of a
friend of his sister who was an
early resident of Longboat


a o-; v ..... r ** r -> r n
Key. A Former newspaper-
man, he'd been a printer and
eventually display advertising
salesman for papers like thb
New York Times, Palm Beacd
Post and Newark Daily News.
Along the way he met and
married his wife of now 55
years, Sally, who was on thl
staff of Parents magazine in
NewYork.
A Navy veteran of Worlht
War II, Hoffman has never
been one to sit around. At-
though serving as Pretzl
King for 27 years may seerm
like doing the same thing for a
long time, he's also been an
usher at the Asolo Theatre fdr
the same length of time.
It's long enough to prq-
mote pretzels.
So, a redecorated old Pu-
lix shopping cart, a couple Of
gowns, some signs and a
crown are up for sale because
the King of Pretzels is retiring.
"Hey, we went to Europe 4
couple of times on the pretzel
business," Hoffman relates. ,

Laird, Boyts

to next level

Two Venice High softball
standouts have already lined
up colleges to play at.
Pitchers Heather Laird and
Heather Boyts have been the
Lady Indians' 1-2 mound
punch the past two years.
Laird was unbeaten last
year as a junior with a record
of 16-0. She has a full ride
secured at Manatee Com-
munity College.
Boyts will play at Florida
Tech in Melbourne.


The scholastic winter
sports season for Venice High
is down to one sport -
wrestling. There are three
Indians in Lakeland this
week at the Class 2A Finals.
The wrestling team would
have to rate as the most suc-
cessful of the winter sports at
VHS. Dan Kelly's Indians won
20 duals and placed fifth in
the regional tournament.
The next most successful
winter sport would have to be
girls soccer. The Lady Indians
finished with a record of
15-6-1 and almost made it
out of district. A miracle
comeback by Manatee knock-
ed the Lady Indians out of
the quarterfinals.
Girls weightlifting was
able to send one' athlete to
the State Meet. Taylor Howell
was ll1th at 119 pounds.
Boys. basketball put to-
gether eight wins in a row
and finished the regular sea-
son with a record of 15-10.
However, Steve Cavallaro's
troops bombed in their dis-
trict opener.
Boys soccer finished with
a record of 6-12. The Indians
were young and inexperi-
enced up front.
Girls basketball had a
major falloff from 2005 when
the Lady Indians made it to
the state finals. The girls end-
ed their season with a loss in
the district quarterfinals. It
was their ninth, straight set-
back. They finished 10-16.
Now it's on to spring
sports.
Softball, baseball and ten-
nis have already started.
Track and field and boys
weightlifting are coming in
the near future.


The votes are in. There
will be three more people
inducted into the Venice
Sports Hall of Fame this June.
The ceremony and dinner
will be at Bogey's.
The names will be offici-
ally announced in the near
future.
This will be the fourth
class inducted into the Hall
of Fame. Plaques are located
at the entrance of Bogey's on
a "Wall of Fame."

Nelson, Cook, Saputo all win openers
at FHSAA State Wrestling Firals in Lakeland.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

No one wins a state
wrestling title without getting
past day one.,
Venice High matmen went
a perfect 3-for-3 Thursday in
opening-round action of the
FHSAA Class 2A State Finals
at The Lakeland Center.
Brett Nelson, Jeremie Cook
and Anthony Saputo now
march into the most impor-
tant day of the season. Friday
will see both the quarterfinal
and semifinal rounds unfold.
"It's the day that makes it
or breaks it," said Nelson. "If
you win both,, you're in the
finals."
Which is why the VHS trio
came to Lakeland in the first
place.
Seniors Nelson, Cook and
Saputo are all regional cham-
pions who have a legitimate
shot of winning state gold.
Nelson improved his rec-
ord at 160 pounds to 47-1
with a convincing 16-8 de-
cision over Dan Holden of
Palm Beach Gardens-Dwyer.
He now moves into'Friday
morning's quarterfinals
against Derrick McCoy of
Tampa-Freedom. McCoy
was trailing in his opening-
round match but came back
to pin his opponent.
"I never wrestled him, I
don't know anything about
him," said Nelson. "I have


to go out, work hard and get
the job done. I felt kind of
slow today. I've never at my
best the first day. He (Holden)
was pretty strong. I'm just
glad to get the first one out
of the way."
McCoy takes a record of
26-4 into his match with
Nelson.
Cook, the defending 2A
171-pound champion, work-
ed his way to a 20-5 tech-
nical fall over Bill Gower of
Brandon (35-15). Cook (49-0)
secured the T-fall with
eight seconds left in the 189-
pound match.
"I wanted to get a pin,"
Cook said. "Last year in my
first match I was kind of off
a little bit."
Cook said he knows
nothing about his quarter-
final opponent, Angel Cano
of Davie-Nova. Cano (25-10)
squeezed out an 11-7 deci-
sion over Matt Skipper of
Orange Park-Ridgeview.
"Brett watched him and
said I shouldn't have too
much trouble," Cook said. "I
like the quarterfinals in the
morning and the semifinals
at night. It gives me a chance
to relax and hang out with
my friends. I'm a senior, so
this is the last time."
Of the three, heavyweight
Saputo had the most exciting
match. He was actually on
his back and in danger of
getting pinned towards the

Saputo was leading 2-1

almost got caught.
"Anthony can be a sucker

EDITOR'S NOTE: On Feb. 23,
The Plantation Foundation will
hold its annual Celebrity Golf
Classic. Founded in 1984, The
Plantation Foundation has distrib-
uted more than $1.5 million to
more than 40 organizations
throughout south Sarasota
County. Many former athletes will
be on hand. This marks the third
in a series of profiles of some of
those'former athletes. The
Plantation Community Foundation
Endowment Fund welcomes gifts
and bequests from friends of the
Foundation. In this way, anyone
interested in assisting the
Foundation in its work may join
them in generosity. Information on
how such gifts may be made can
be obtained by calling the PCF
office at 497-4826.

In 1951, he .led his Mus-
kegon High School football
team to a Michigan state
championship. This set off a
college recruiting war be-
tween Michigan, Michigan
State and Notre Dame which
was won by the Spartans of
Michigan State University. He
played for three years in East
Lansing, graduating in 1956

the Morrall of the story


following a stellar senior year
in which he set a record on
defense by returning a recov-
ered fumble 90 yards for a
touchdown. He also quarter-
backed his 9-1 Spartans to a
last second 17-14 win over
UCLA in the Rose Bowl.
When it came time for the
NFL draft, the San Francisco
49ers wasted no time in
making Earl Morrall, the
Michigan State quarterback,
the league's number one pick.
Before he was finished
some 21 years later, Morrall
had worn the uniforms of
the Niners, Steelers, Lions,
Giants, Colts and Dolphins.
He completed 1,379 passes
for a total of 20,809 yards
and 161 touchdowns. Al-
though he never cracked
into the upper echelon of
NFL quarterbacks of his day,
Morrall is magically linked to
three different seasons which
have earned him the moni-
ker of the "greatest backup
quarterback" of all time.
The first was 1968. Traded
by the Giants to the Colts
for an undisclosed draft pick,
Earl was destined to play
backup to Johnny Unitas.
However, in the last exhibi-
tion game, Unitas went down
with an injury that would
keep him sidelined for the
better part of the year. All
Morrall did was step in and
lead the Colts to what was
one of the most dominating
seasons by any NFL team.
Baltimore went 13-1.
Before 78,410 fans in
Cleveland, the Colts trounced
the Cleveland Browns 34-0
in the championship game,
leaving some in the media
calling them "the greatest
team in the history of the


vanced. Local kids can reg-
ister at Englewood Tennis
Club (475-3386), Jacaranda
West (493-5128), Laurel

NFL."
Morrall and his Colts went
into Super Bowl III in the
Orange Bowl as 18-point
favorites over Joe Namath
and the New York Jets. What
transpired on that day is
now part of NFL folklore as
Namath "guaranteed" a vic-
tory then went out and sys-
tematically dismantled the
Colts in a 16-7 win which
legitimized the AFL and
opened the gates to the
merger of the two leagues
just two years later.
Morrall was replaced 'by
Unitas in the game, but it was
too little too late as the Jets
were simply not to be denied.
For the year, Morrall led
the league in TD passes
and was second in passing
yards. Named to the Pro
Bowl squad, he was also
named the NFL's Most
Valuable Player.
The following two sea-
sons, Earl returned to his role
as backup to Unitas, however,
he was not the traditional
backup QB who merely car-
ried a clip board. He would
see some action in virtually
every game and in 1970 he
would get the opportunity
to redeem the loss in Super
Bowl III. It was an opportun-
ity he did not let slip
away.
The Colts were battling
the Dallas Cowboys and
trailing 13-6 near the end of
the first half when a rib injury
sent Unitas to the sidelines.
Morrall took the field and
sparked a comeback which
culminated with the Colts
winning Super Bowl V on a
last second field goal by Jim
O'Brien. Earl was 7-for-15 in
the game for 147 yards.


Applications are now be-
ing evaluated for the Ten
Star All-Star Summer Basket-
ball Camp.
The camp is by invitation
only. Boys and girls ages
10-19 are eligible to apply.
Past participants include


When the Colts placed
Morrall on waivers following
the '71 season, Don Shula
(who had been the Colts
head coach in Baltimore in
1968) grabbed him for his
Miami Dolphins saying "I
remember what he did for
me in 1968."
Shula turned out to be a
prophet, as history stood
poised to repeat itself.
The 1972 Dolphins are
legendary. Even the casual
observer of the NFL can not
help but hear of them. Every
year as the countdown of
the NFL's undefeated takes
place, the '72 Dolphins are
brought: back to life. Most
know that they went 14-0
and then won the Super
Bowl. What few remember is
that Earl Morrall was at the
helm for nine of those wins.
Replacing Bob Griese in
game five of the season
against the Chargers, Morrall
quarterbacked the Dolphins
for the rest of the regular
, season and then without
fanfare or rancor, stepped
aside while Griese returned
in the postseason.
It was Griese who was at
the helm when the Dolphins
were proclaimed champions.
It was Jake Scott who held
up the MVP trophy. But
when it was all said and
done, it was Earl Morrall
who was named the AFC
Player of the Year for leading
the Dolphins during the
longest part of their unde-
feated journey of 1972.
Not bad for a guy who
was picked up at the start of
the season for $100 waiver
price. Perhaps the greatest
bargain in the history of
sports.

81 A VENICE GONDOLA N


Architects unveil Sarasota Technical Center options


The school board gets its first glimpse of concept
drawings by architects to replace the existing,
Sarasota County Technical Institute.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Concept drawings for the
new Sarasota Technical Cen-
ter made a debut at a Sarasota
County School Board meet-
ing this week.
SchenkelShultz Architec-
ture was asked by the board
to assess district needs and
make recommendations to
replace the existing Sarasota
County Technical Institute
campus.
Kenneth Dean, principal of
SchenkelShultz, gave the
board four options in the
form of concept drawings
with associated costs and
time lines. Construction for
the North County technical
center could begin as soon as
January 2007.
Superintendent Gary Nor-
ris said the district is current-
ly negotiating a land pur-
chase adjoining Manatee
Community College in Venice
for another technical campus
in South County.
Dirty labs
Tops on the list of priorities
for the new Sarasota Tech-
nical Center are facilities that
can handle integrated and
updated technical programs;
are flexible in desigrfn" for
changing program needs;
and have a high-tech image.
Dean characterized the
existing campus buildings
and instructional labs as anti-
quated. While existing build-
ings are in relatively good
shape for their age, Dean said,
the space layout cannot easily
be changed, making recon-
figuation difficult.
Architects also identified
inadequate lighting and air
flow, poor noise insulation
and inadequate HVAC sys-
tems.
Administrators are also


looking into using at least
some of the old SCTI build-
ings for staff housing.
In addition to serving 2,500
adult students, the new cam-
pus will serve SCTI's current
600 full-time high school stu-
dents, and another 600 part-
timers.
School. board president
Carol Todd said she was con-
cerned about how the project
costs being expended on
adult services compared to'
high school students, and
wondered if the plans take
into account projected stu-
dent growth.
Norris assured the board
that plans are already under
way to build a South County
facility that would help
address any spike in student
enrollment. Norris' NeXt
Generation Learning plan
also calls for expanded tech-
nology programs at all five
high schools in the county.
Favored options
Concept 1, the "courtyard
layout," is the least expensive,
estimated at $79 million
($160 per square foot for new
buildings). It would take 24
months (considered one
phase) before occupancy.
It involves a compact lay-
out of buildings around a
courtyard: one side serving
adult students, with the other
serving high school students.
Entrance would be primarily
from Beneva Road.
Concept 2 involves two
phases building new build-
ings where none exist, then
demolishing and rebuilding
over' existing facilities. It
requires minimal campus
disruption, said architects,
and would take longer to
complete -30 months -
than concept 1.
This .,"linear concept"
would allow primary ingress

An artist's rendering of the new Sarasota Technical Center Concept 2 favored by the school dis-
trict administration. This option would change the main entrance for SCTI from Beneva to

Renovation unlikely estimated $98 million. This calls for the renovation ..of


buildings and construction of
197,355 square feet in new
facilities.
The "remodel concept"
would require maximum dis-
placement of students and
programs over a four-year
period, Dean said.
In addition to "excessive
construction costs," said
Dean, renovation has other
drawbacks, such as compro-
mised safety zones and
retaining the campus's 40-
year-old building image,
something the board wants to
change.
Beating inflation
Superintendent Gary Nor-
ris wasn't shy about the
school district administra-
tion's recommendation.
"We like Concept 2,
straight out ... although con-
cept 1 is more doable," Norris
said.
Board member Laura Ben-'
son liked Concept 1 while
John Lewis and Kathy Klein-
lein favored Concept 2. Frank
Kovach and Carol Todd re-
served judgment.
Chuck Collins, director of
construction services, urged
the board to make/a timely
decision about how to move
forward with the project.
Despite recent spikes in
the costs of concrete, drywall
and steel that have since lev-
eled off, Collins said, con-
struction escalation costs for
a project of this size typically
runs about $1 million per
month. Thus, waiting another
year to approve the project
could increase costs by $12
million or more.
"Superintendent Norris
has been pushing (the pro-
cess), and he is right," COllins
said, "The key to addressing
inflation costs is getting this
in as quickly as possible with
,a contract. That's your saving
grace."

emorializing 'the spot'


SUN PHOTOS BY JJ. ANDREWS
Tom and Pat Dowd traded the wintery weather of York Beach, Maine, for a spot on a memorialized South Jetty bench. The inscription on their bench
reads, "In loving memory of Leo J. Meiser, Sit long, talk much, laugh often."


STAFF REPORT

C arl and Margaret Schade used to -


watch the sun sink


evening. *

*It was their
favorite way to pass
... the time since they moved
to Venice in 1975..
Now the spot has been memorialized
by their son and daughter, Robert Schade and
Maggie Priest. They dedicated a bench to their late par-
ents at the South Jetty.


"We happened to be over at the
South Jetty last year," Schade said.
"I had been sitting there with my
sister and my brother from up
north and a truck' pulled in,
dropped off a concrete bench and
put it together."
Schade said he watched with his
brother and sister while a bench
was loaded off a truck. He wrote
down the phone number that was
on the side of the truck.
"When they left we went over
and looked at it (the bench)," he
said. "There was an engraving on it.
We inquired when we got home
and they told us where to get the
engraving."
Memorializing the spot
Schade and Priest called the
Venice Public Works Department
because a bench on the South Jetty
required a permit. The PWD offered
its services as long as the brother
and sister purchase the engraving.
Since the installation of the
bench, the brother and sister feel
they can visit their parents anytime,


enjoying the same site and the
same views of the famous Venice
sunsets that their parents enjoyed
for so many years.
"They were cre-
a mated," Priest
Said. "They


wanted to
be in the gulf."
The Schades'
memory lives on at their
favorite spot along the gulf.
Schade said it's a place for
strangers or somebody who might
have known his parents to sit and
say, "Hey, I knew Carl and
I'*


Margaret."
Both brother and sister
think that dedicating
i.;! benches will catch
on and per-
ai .- s o n a l


engravings "'
will be found on


The view from this South Jetty bench in the shade behind the snack bar seems appropriate, since it is dedicated
to the memory of Venice residents Carl and Margaret Schade.


benches in all of the 150 state parks
in Florida.
"It was very reasonable," Schade
said about the cost of the bench.
"My parents are both deceased
now, and we go over there periodi-
cally and sit there. We know their
spirits are there."
Others who see the bench will
know that too. They also will know
that someone cared enough to
honor their memory.
"It could really open up because
it doesn't cost the taxpayers any
money. This could be a memorial to
the people down here," he said.
A story to tell
There are several benches there
already. Some have been there even
longer than the Schade bench, and
newer ones have been added since
the installation of the Schade
bench.
Each bench has a story to tell,
some more than others.
Some inscriptions are as simple
as, "In memory of ..." Others tell
more of a story, such as the bench
honoring the late Leo J. Meiser. The
inscription reads: "In loving memo-
ry of Leo J. Meiser, Sit long, talk
much, laugh often."
That inscription captures the
story of so many of the people who
visit the South Jetty to watch the
sunsets. They sit awhile, visiting
with others, talking and laughing,
making memories as the blazing
orange sun sizzles and sputters out
nightly when it hits the water's edge
out there on the far horizon.

Buffalo Girl: Rememberin


STORY AND PHOTOS
BY FRAN PALMERI
GUEST WRITER


"Excellent!" and "Deeply
moving!" were some of the
comments from people who
came from as far away as Fort
Myers and Punta Gorda and
filled the Nature Center at
Oscar Scherer State Park
recently.
The packed house
watched "Memories of a
Buffalo Girl," a play written
and performed by Park
Ranger Israel (Izzy) Gonzalez
and his wife, Michelle Neitzel.
The play looks back at a time
when Nokomis was "Potter,"
Laurel was "Dundee" and
Venice was home to ducks
and other waterfowl.
Children stayed glued to
their seats, enjoying the show,
which provided historical tid-
bits such as uses for Spanish
moss (band aids, mattress
stuffing and packing materi-
al).

Rqmnants of Mrs. Bertha Honore Palmer's "solution" to wild
hogs -barbed wire.


The play is based on
columns written by George
Higel, who appeared twice a
month in the local paper
under the pen name "Nemo."
Michelle found Higel's
columns compiled in a three-
book collection at the Venice
Historical Society. These
became the basis for the plot
of the play, all of which is fact,
although the characters,
"Miss Ellie" and "Pa," are not.
Looking back at a marriage
spanning the first half of the
20th century, Miss Ellie, now a
widow, reminiscences about
life on the farm when they'd
work from, "Can't see to can't
see."
When hogs ran wild, Mrs.
Bertha Honore Palmer solved
the problem with a new fan-


gled invention barbed
wire. Those hogs, by the way,
were reputed to clear land
better than mules and con-
victs could.
Those were the days of the
new railroad, dubbed the
"Seaboard Airlines" by the
locals, when vegetables from
the truck farmers in the area
were shipped up north and to
far away places like Cuba, and
John Ringling hadn't even
been heard of. Back then, the
Tamiami Trail, also a new
addition to the area, was
known as the "Velvet
Highway."
\ In the audience was third-
generation local resident,
Carolyn Taylor Davis, who
was delighted to see local his-
tory brought to life on the

stage, around the time her
grandfather settled in this
area.
"We were drawn into that
era we could have sat there
for another hour. You could
tell the actors had done their
homework," she said.
Both Michelle and Izzy are
accomplished actors who
have appeared in produc-
tions at the Lemon Bay
Playhouse. The two longtime
Florida residents, spent sev-
eral years doing research to


create this interpretive pro-
gram that "would make
learning about the area fun,"
according to Michelle.
The two are donating their
time and talent to benefit the
Friends of Oscar Scherer Park,
the Park's CSO.
The show runs Fridays at
7:30 p.m. now through May.
Tickets are $5. Admission to
the park is free for the perfor-
mance. Seating is limited to
50 people. For more informa-
tion, call the park at 483-5956.

WELL BEING


ANGELA BIRDSONG
GUEST COLUMNIST

Healthy eating, looking
young and staying fit seem to
be the mantra's for the baby
boomer generation.
However, increasingly
there is a focus on the home
and making it a healthy living
environment.
Yes, we are in the age of
decadent urban sprawl and
acquiring the latest techno
gadgets for ourselves and the
kids. Still we all want to know
that the cocoon we go home
to everyday is safe. Some are
now taking steps to make sure
their home keeps them
healthy.
Japan is the healthiest
nation on earth. Longevity
seems to be their birth rite.
Instead of focusing on homes
that are luxurious escapes
their main goal is have homes
that are toxin free and pro-
mote healthy living.
A wellness home in Japan
starts with a magnetic sleep
system as its foundation.
Magnets are placed in the
mattress, comforter and pil-
lows. .,
Evidence suggests that
Pewroughly 80 percent of chronic
pain sufferers could benefit
form magnetic therapy. When
held against the skin, mag-
nets relax capillary walls,
thereby boosting blood flow
to the painful area. They also


help prevent the muscle
spasms that underlie many
forms of pain-by interfering
with muscle contractions.
Another major use of mag-
nets has been to reduce
stress. Magnets used at night,
increase melatonin levels
which have a calming effect
on the body, reducing stress
and facilitating relaxation.
Drinking water is the next
issue addressed. The,
Japanese have made signifi-
cant breakthroughs in water
purification for the home.
By applying a magnetic
field to water, breaking down
the molecules, making it
more absorbable for the body
and then pushing the water
through carbon and ceramic
filters they produce what is
referred to as PiMag.Water.
While most American
water filtration systems,
including reverse osmosis
and water softeners, leave the
user with clean drinkable
water, it is considered dead
water. All of the minerals and
nutrients have been removed.
PiMag water is known as
the "Water of Life." It behaves
as an antioxidant because of
its free-radical elimination
properties. PiMag water also
aids the body in oxygen,
absorption, important for
-many reasons, the least of
which it is the primary fuel of
the body. It also has a pH level
of just above 7.
Most health professionals
recognize the.importance of
proper body pH. One current
theory about the cause of
cancer has to do with body.

Cancer cells thrive in an
acidic environment, while
healthy cells do best in a near
neutral pH. Most wellness
homes will include PiMag
water filtration units on their


kitchen facets and shower
heads.
The last component of a
wellness home is the creation
of clean breathable indoor air.
Most American homeowners
are concerned about energy
efficiency.
To cut energy costs homes
and apartments are being
better insulated and sealed.
Although this will cause a
decrease in your electric bill
this also decreases the
amount of air that gets
exchanged and refreshed.
In addition indoor pollu-
tants come from objects and
materials found in your
home. Chemical vapors are
emitted from carpeting, fur-
niture, cleaning agents, paint
and glues. Then there are the
threats'from gases such as
radon and carbon monoxide.
To conquer this problem
the Japanese use powerful air
filtration units which contain
at least five filters. First there
is a pre-filter which traps
large particles, secondly, a
photo catalytic filter that
destroys pollutants, third, and
a carbon filter which uses
charcoal absorption to
reduce contaminants.
The fourth is a Nona cop-
per filter that attracts pollu-
tants added to a HEPA filter.
The Power Wellness 5 is the
most popular brand; it also
produces clean ion genera-
tion without producing
ozone in the air.
More and more Americans
are making the decision to
have wellness homes. A home
that a family can truly be
,proud of because it con-
tributes to the health of each
member of the family.

dressing standards; a 145-
page quick-service guide; and
a 138-page book entitled "De-
signing Letter and Rely Mail."
By the time I absorb all of
that information, I probably
could get ajob at the new post
office once it is finally built.
One tip was interesting: If
you want to speed up your
letter being received, the
address on your envelope
should be written in all capi-
tal letters with no punctua-
tion, and never place the zip
code on a line by itself.
That way the letter can go
through automatically and
won't have to be handled
manually.
And be sure the state is
written in two letters only; do
not spell it out.

Ancestor's marriage is one for the books


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER
An American Profile article
about the world's longest-
married couple sparked a
phone call from puzzled En-
glewood resident Erlene
Huntress Davis.
Because as far as Davis and
the Guinness World Records
Web site, are concerned,
Davis' ancestors still hold the
record for being the world's
longest-married couple at a
"normal" age.
A Chinese couple was mar-
ried at the age of 5.
"They said (John and
Emilia Rocchio) are the long-
est-married couple," Davis
said. "That is not true."
Davis pulled out a 1986
Guinness World Records
book,. indicating Lazarus
Rowe and Mary Weber Rowe
hold the record for a marriage
at "a normal age."
"They were married 86
years. They both lived into
their 104th year, which in
itself, if both of them lived
until 104, is quite a thing,"
Davis said.
Lazarus and Mary "Molly"
Rowe were Davit' great-great-
great-great-great-grandpar-
ents. The confusion is because
the word "living" was omitted
from the American Profile arti-
cle. The Guinness Web site
states the Rocchios are the
longest "living" married cou-
ple.
But Davis maintains that
her ancestors, the Rowes, still
hold the world record, living
or dead.
Unanswered questions
The Rowes were married at
the age of-18 in 1725 in Greenr

Guinness World Records book identifying her ancestors as the

land, N.H. They both died in
1829, within three months of
each other.
Davis found out this infor-
mation after she began re-
searching her family's history
in 1954.
For the last 52 years, she's
been working on the genealo-
gy process, which she said
never really ends.
Davis joked, "I'll never
make it that far," referring to
the .86 years Lazarus and
Molly were married.
Davis said she couldn't get
some questions answered
about her family when she
was young, so she started
looking into the family's his-
tory through public records.
'"I got interested in doing
my research when my par-
ents couldn't answer any of


lwww huricnesuttrs~o. om0


* Tough, durable, virtually indestructible

* Clear shutters let daylight in when power fails
* Can be left up all hurricane season


my questions that I asked
them about my ancestors,"
she said. "Nobody knew any-
thing further back than their
grandparents."
Close call
And with all she's found


out about her past, Davis
could write some fairly inter-
esting accounts of history.
Lazarus had quite an excit-
ing life, it appears. Davis said
he was in the French and
Indian War from 1754 to 1763
and the Rdvolutionary War
from 1775 to 1777.
While serving in New York
during the the Battle of Fort
William Henry in Lake
George, he was captured,
stripped and about to be
burned at the stake.
He was able to escape, but
not without repercussions.
He had to run naked through
the woods until he found a
house with a woman who let
him take one of her petticoats
to wrap in until he was able to
find his Way home.
Lazarus and Molly later
moved to Baldwin, Maine,
where they had 10 children.
Davis is actively involved
in genealogical organizations,
such as the Family of Bruce
Society In America, an orga-
nization for the descendants.
of Robert the Bruce, King of
Scotland.

The Three World Tenors,
James Anderson, Mario
Mariani and Joseph Spinella
with guest soprano Rebecca
Price, will return for a third
performance in Venice at 3
p.m. Sunday, Feb. 19, at Our
Lady of Lourdes Church, 1301
Center Road.
The concert will benefit
the Parish Missionaries
Endowment Fund, which

and the lonely in our commu-
nity. Tickets are $20 for adults
and $5 for students.
For more information or to
order tickets, call 492-6226,
493-8662 or 497-2931. Tickets
also can be purchased at The
Paper Pad, 213 W Venice Ave.

SeaWorld Orlando and
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay


will revolutionize the way to
visit theme parks offering
unlimited admission and
flexibility for the unbelievable
value of a single-day ticket.
For vacationers, the parks are
eliminating the need for rigid
scheduling, allowing them to
"come and go" as they please'
during their vacation with
any one-day ticket (up to
seven consecutive days). For
residents, the parks are bring-
ing back their most popular
offer in history pay for a
day, come back all year in
2006.
Starting now, for the same
price as a 2006 single-day
admission, Florida residents
can revisit their favorite
theme park again and again
through all of 2006. No black-
out dates and no additional
charge, this special offer is the
hottest ticket in town. The
Fun Card is available at the
parks' front gates, at AAA
offices and online at
SeaWorld.com and
BuschGardens.com.
For guests who are visiting
Florida in 2006, both parks
are introducing respective
'Anytime" offers for vacation-
ers to "come and go" as they
please during their stay with
the purchase of any ticket.
Designed to address the time
crunch guests experience


during a Florida vacation,
"SeaWorld Anytime" and
"Busch Gardens Anytime" are
the best way to enjoy a vaca-
tion without a rigid schedule
and time constraints.
For either park, guests sim-
ply exchange any one-day
admission for a personalized
pass that allows them unlim-
ited visits' during their vaca-
tion to that same park (up to
six additional days).
With each of these new
ways to get the most out of
SeaWorld and Busch
Gardens, guests will have the
opportunity to experience all
of the adventure the parks
have in store for 2006.
Coming to SeaWorld
Orlando in 2006, "Believe" is
the most ambitious killer
whale show in the company's
history, and marks the great-
est investment the company
has ever made in a show.
"Believe" showcases majestic
killer whales with awe-inspir-
ing choreography, an elabo-
rate three-story set, original
musical score and four
panoramic LED screens. A
first for SeaWorld, the intense
choreography of the new
show creates a breathtaking
"killer whale ballet" of grace


and agility, as every move-
ment of the powerful whales
- each weighing 6,000 to
10,000 pounds is matched
to the corresponding beat of a
stirring, original musical
score.
As America's only dive
coaster, Sheikra has already
become a legend since open-
ing in May. It has cemented
Busch Garden's reputation as
Florida's coaster king with, a
record-breaking 200-foot, 90-
degree vertical drop, a sec-
ond, 138-foot dive into an
underground tunnel, and a
water feature finale. No mat-
ter what time of year, Busch
Gardens guests can come
back again and again for a full
calendar of special events,
including the Real Music
Concert Series and return
engagement of Irish Thunder
(January-March), Summer
Nights and Florida's top-rated
haunted attraction, Howl-O-
Scream.
The single-day admission
price to SeaWorld Orlando is
$61.95 for adults and $49.95
for children. The single-day
admission price to Busch
Gardens Tarnpa Bay is $57.95
for adults and $47.95 for chil-
dren.

THE KEY: Excellent Y T | Good V Fair | Poor



Ford acts in his sleep in'Firewall


BYCHRISTYLEMIRE
GUEST WRITER


Harrison Ford could have
made "Firewall" in his sleep
and at times1t feels like he
did.
It's the most generic of
high-tech kidnap thrillers -
not even interesting enough
to be guilty-pleasure bad.
You'll be forgiven for con-
fusing it with "Ransom" or
"Hostage." They're all essen-.
-.,ially interchangeable. ..
*.;,Ford growls..defiandtvy at
mes and the former Han
Solo/Indiana Jones/Jack
Ryan can still throw a punch
at 63 but mostly he just
looks tired and bored as bank
executive Jack Stanfield,
whose family is held hostage
inside their lavish Seattle
home.


Paul Bettany is coolly
sadistic as the head of the
bank robbers, who burst in-
to Jack's house and force h
im to hack into the security
system he designed to help
them steal $100 million.
But Virginia Madsen an
Oscar nominee just one year
ago for her superb support-
ing work in "Sideways" is
relegated here to playing the
dutiful wife in peril. Sample
line from the script by Joe
For,te;. ,I" already, l~y.e a
,hbby. It's taking aefyu,"
she coos to Jack with a kiss at
the film's idyllic start. Gag
me with a bottle of merlot.
If Ford can throw a punch,
Madsen unfortunately can
take one. Her character,
Beth, and her children are
needlessly subjected to an
array of abuse. What Bet-


tany's bad-boy Brit Bill Cox
does to the couple's young
son, having stalked them for
months and knowing that
the boy has a peanut allergy,
is nothing short of deplor-
able.
Beth tries to keep the kids
calm by suggesting they
think happy thoughts, like
remembering the times the
family has spent together on
their boat. Yes, it is hard to
relate to these people.
Meanwhile, Richard Lon-
craine,. 'ho.. also directed.
Benany in a superior perfor-
mance as a fading tennis
star in "Wimbledon," tries to
evoke suspense from key-
strokes and green blips on a
computer screen as Jack, Bill
and various bank employees
attempt to outfox each other
electronically.


' The score from Alexandre
Desplat ("Birth," "Syriana")
doesn't make matters more
intense. Especially in a cli-
mactic brawl at the end -
and really this is Stunt
Fighting 101,, complete with
broken.railings and smashed
windows the music just
sounds frantic.
Jack scurries around in the
pouring rain (but never car-
ries an umbrella, an unchar-
acteristic trait for someone
who's so detail oriented and
liKes in Seatle)- buying to lose
the thugs who are'constandly
following him. And when he
wonders how he's expected
to go about his regular rou-
tine under constant surveil-
lance and threats, Bill re-
sponds evenly, "You do your
work, Jack. Chase that
American dream."'

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

ARIES (March 21-April
19). The good mood,
you had yesterday
now seems elusive. Try adding
a generous pat on the back
to your routine. You not only
deserve to recognize your
own strengths, but it's actually
counterproductive not to'
do so.

STAURUS (April 20-May
20). A sincere person
is instrumental in
helping you complete a pro-
ject. A Cancer, in particular, is
practically incapable of telling
you lies. Enthusiasm is rekin-
dled where you had previously
lost steam.

< GEMINI (May 21-June
21). At work, you have
a hunch something
is amiss. Rely on your own
instincts; double-check your
sources. Your personal life
becomes stress-free once you
get that certain fact off your
chest.

CANCER (June 22-July
22). Happiness is a
thought pattern.
Change your thoughts about
that pesky situation in your
love life. Maybe it's "their
problem" and not a reflection,
of you, after all.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
SThe stars urge you to
Sbe indomitable.
Inventors are people who are
not afraid to fail. They often
have over a thousand unsuc-
cessful attempts before getting
one winner. Determination is
a talent in and of itself.

: VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22). What if you only
pursued clients, pro-
jects and jobs that were truly
stimulating to you? To be
guided strictly by your inter-
ests and curiosity is a daring
move, and it takes courage.
This kind of bravery pays off.

/ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). Steer clear of
that group of people
who think things are bad and
not going to get better. You
can't afford'to be brought
down on as lucky a day as
this, even by people you love
very much.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-
Nov. 21). A close,
personal interaction
has magic in it. What you tell
your sweetheart also has a
wider meaning. It applies to
yourself, your father, your
child ... It could be whispered
as a prayer.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
S 22-Dec. 21). Be careful
.' of a tendency to
hoard beautiful, potentially
valuable and completely
unnecessary items. Your life
could get cluttered with good
junk that will only keep you
from pursuing the real
meaningful goals.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). You're some-
one's favorite and will
get preferential treatment.
Scour magazines for answers
to your love.questions, or ask a
wise Virgo what she really
thinks.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18). When you're
calm in regards to
money, you can look out
into the world of jobs and intu-
itively sense where you really
fit in. A fatter savings will help
you relax. Ask a Capricorn for
advice.

k PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20). Your way is made
easier because you
are working with colleagues,
not against them. In fact, on a
deeper level, these people
are gifts to your life, no matter
how difficult they can be at
times.

FEB. 17, 2006


DONNA MARTONFI
RELIGION COLUMNIST

Little did I know when I
called my close friend Cindy
in Ohio, whom God has
appointed as a very crucial
and much needed interces-
sor for my ministry, that God
would make His intentions
so plainly, so clearly, so
explicitly, unequivocally and
without any shadow of a
doubt, so very obvious to me.
Upon telling her that I had
been praying for days and
seeking God's heart about the
sermon I needed to prepare
for Sunday morning, she
said, "God is showing me a
bag and your message is 'in
the bag.' After questioning
her extensively as to what
type of bag and whether it
was a plastic grocery bag or a
large suitcase, she explained
that it had handles and was
larger than a briefcase, some-
thing you would take on a


trip.
(The chain of events that
followed will absolutely
amaze you. They certainly
did me, because in the end I
went ballistic, jumping and
leaping and shouting and
running all over the house
in an attempt to convey to
my very laid-back and basi-
cally docile, never-gets-over-
ly-excited husband the enor-
mity of what was happening
in his living room.)
Getting back to the mo-
ments following my phone
call with Cindy, I then began
my daily devotions, which
consist of reading four con-
secutive chapters from four
different parts of the bible.
Tucked away at the back of
my mind was the word,
"bag," which I expected
would simply "jump off"
some page at me while I was
studying. Instead, my mind
started to wander and I start-
ed to think about using a
bag as a prop in my sermon.
The problem was, I HATED
props! Secondly, "What
would I do with a bag," I won-
dered, "pull stuff out of it?"
With that in mind I remem-
bered this unusual torch that
my husband had brought
home from a garage sale a
couple of months back. For
some strange reason, he
thought I would be thrilled. I
am NEVER thrilled with all
the junk he brings home


every Saturday and try to
make it disappear off the
kitchen table, out of sight, just
as fast as possible. This torch
though was really unique. It
was about 12 inches tall and
had orange lights shining
upward onto fabric that was
being blown about by a hid-
den fan so that it was in
motion, giving the illusion
of actual flames of fire. Con-
sidering what a "good" prop
it would make, I decided to
see if the word torch was
anywhere in the bible. Check-
ing my concordance, I found
that it was mentioned only
once. Reading the passage, I
quickly realized it was noth-
ing to write a sermon about.
Giving up on the idea, I
decided to continue reading
in the second book of Tim-
othy and keep going until I
connected with the mind of
God. In less than a minute,
two names, which I can't
even pronounce, much less
spell, grabbed my attention.
Normally, I couldn't care less
who they were or what they
were doing in the middle of
this chapter because they
did not pertain to anything
relevant going on in my life
or ministry or message, BUT
for some inexplicable reason
(tongue in cheek). I pulled
out my study bible to inves-
tigate and ferret out every-

thing I could about them.
Had I not pulled this particu-
lar study bible off my shelf I
would never have read the
footnotes containing the
word 'torch,' which then so
clearly, categorically, unmis-
takably and very loudly
screamed out at me ... GOD
WANTS YOU TO USE THIS
TORCH!
Becoming ecstatic, I ran
for the torch and that's when I
caused all the commotion in
my living room, flapping my
arms up and down and
shouting, "Darko, Darko, can
you fathom what's happen-
ing here and how God has
orchestrated this preposter-
ous chain of events? You
bought this torch and then I
stuck it in that bag, of all


places and ... ." That's when
the revelation really hit me
like a lightening bolt... IT
WAS IN A BAG! I had placed
that torch in the large cloth
tote bag, which coincident-
ally contains all my bibles,
books and other materials
that I take back and forth
with me when I travel in
ministry. There was abso-
lutely no earthly reason to
put it there, but there it was,
all this time, tucked, away
with all the other tools that
I need to bring forth God's
truth.
At this moment I don't
know what that truth is going
to be or what he is going to
have me do with that torch.
The torch is not the issue,
but what is so exciting is the


fact that we are able to access
the very heart and mind of
God. It is indeed exciting to
know that God is totally and
continuously involved in
every aspect of our lives,
coordinating each and every
event down to the most
minute detail and leading us
in a particular direction so
we can reach the objective
he has set out for us.
Therefore, we really need to
pay attention to those details!

Commemorative cemeteries thtinspire and teach


BY BRIG. GEN. J.W. NICHOLSON, U.S. ARMY
(RET.)
GUEST WRITER

"Beautiful." "Educational."
"Inspiring." That's how many people
describe the commemorative ceme-
teries and memorials maintained
overseas by the American Battle
Monuments Commission (ABMC).
These places are part of our
nation's history-perpetual
reminders of our willingness to help
others in need.
The Commission traces its roots
back to World War I, when more
than one million Americans were,
deployed to Europe. /
Many of its cemeteries are off the
beaten path, near famous battle-
fields ofWorld Wars I and II.
Others are near tourist centers
that cater routinely to Amnericans.
Places of lasting beauty, these
cemeteries can teach history and
inspire feelings of gratitude and
patriotism in visitors of all ages.-
ABMC encourages all Americans to
include these splendid shrines in


their travel plans abroad.
While many traveling in Europe
know about the American cemetery
in Normandy that overlooks Omaha
Beach, few realize that the
Commission also maintains ceme-
teries just as beautiful in locations
such as Cambridge, England; Paris,
France; and Florence, Italy.
These lesser-known cemeteries
and commemorative sites also pro-
vide visitors with insight into the
sacrifices Americans have made in
the service of freedom.
For example, the Aisne-Marne
Cemetery in France holds special
significance in U.S. Marine Corps
history, while the Meuse-Argonne
Cemetery in France is important in
Army history, with more than 14,000
soldiers buried there who gave their
lives in the successful Meuse-
Argonne Offensive .in 1918.
Most of those buried or memori-
alized in the Cambridge American
Cemetery outside London died dur-
ing World War II in the strategic
bombardment of Northwest Europe
or in the Battle of the Atlantic.


In the' Ardennes American
Cemetery southwest of Liege,
Belgium, are many who died in the
Battle of the Bulge.
Others, including General George
S. Patton, are buried in Luxembourg.
American Cemetery just three miles
east of downtown Luxembourg City.
ABMC cemeteries are part of our
national heritage. We, are proud to
maintain them for the American
people-to honor and respect the
sacrifice of America's armed forces,
and to fulfill the promise of General
John J. Pershing that time will not
dim die glory of their deeds.
You can learn more online at
abmc.gov.

Brig. Gen. Nicholson is the
Secretary of the American Battle
Monuments Commission.

Hire a guide or charter a captain


F or many, fishing is a
: way of relaxing in the
outdoors, away from
the stresses and responsi-
bilities of everyday life. It's
an opportunity to experi-
ence a small adventure in
the natural world. For
others, it's a bit more
intense catching fish is
die only goal. And foi
some, the technique is
more important than die
catching. But the bottom
line is catching some fish
Snakes any trip succesfull
Wbedther one is a casual
E every'-so-orten type of
angler, a rank notice, a
-.seasoned veteran or anl
experienced professional,
-ie angling experience
can often be better expe-
fienced with a good guide
or chatei -boat captain,
especially so if the area is
unfamiliar. Hiring a guide
or charter ing a captain


Eu ,ii O l'iil i.3


EL l

.* ,-- '*




Capt. Rod
Walinchus


can ofhen make die differ-
ence between fishing and
catching.
The reasons for casual
and beginning anglers to
hire a guide are obvious.
They don't know when,
where or how to actually
catch fish. The seasoned
veterans and expel ienced
professionals save uime
looking for fish in unfa-
miliar ajeas with the


assistance of a guide.
Ever tiune I fish unfarnil-
iar water, in Florida or
elsewhere, I spend at least
one day with an experi-
enced guide.
Why? A good guide is
on the water nearly every
day and knows where the
fish aie tor should bei on
any given tide it's his
job. He won't waste time
searching for fish; he'll'
take you to them and put
you it position to catch
them. He will use appio-
priate tackle and tech-
niques because he knows,
what works best for die
conditions, based on day-
to-day experience. He
eliminates the trial and
error of learning new
water so you can better
enjoy your day.
Remember, lie wants you
to catch fish almost as
much as you want you to


catch fish a no-fish day
isn't something lhe strives
to accomplish.
No matter what your
reasons are for hiring a
guide, die first step is
finding one to suit your
needs. Man\ guides and
charter captains work out
of local mai inas or use
local bait and tackle
shops as booking agents.
Ask around these areas
for recommendations, but
try to be as specific as
possible. If Vou're looking
for a captain to take you
and \our buddies offshore
to catch some grouper.
and have some fun, but
aren't serious fishermen,
let it be known. If Vyou'le a
serious fly fisherman or
lure-chucker, let that be
known also. This way
you'll be pointed in the
right direction.
Look to local publica-
tions for ads; if you're
taveling out of the area,
look to the appropriate
magazines and Internet
sites for information. But
the very best way of find-
ing a good guide is word
of mouth ask friends
whom they have fished
with; they'll be straight
with you.
\Vhen you do narrow
the selection doln, make
a phone call and talk to
the captain or guide. Be
honest with him about
what you expect or hope
to do; he'll let you know if
he can accommodate
you. If you are a, serious
fly fisherman and only
want to fly fish, make that
very, very clear in your
conversation, otherwise


you may spend your day
casting white bait with
sphining rods. The same
goes with any technique
you may favor if that
particular captain or
guide doesn't specialize in
it, your day could be
ruined. Don't tell a cap-
tain or guide that you just
want to catch fish any
fish and then later
complain because all
you're catching are trout.
Be specific.
Get all the details of die
trip nailed down before
you book. Ask about tack-
le and gear many
guides would rather you
fish with their equipment
than yours because they
know theirs will be rigged
correctly and in good
working order. Ask about
lunch, drinks, bait and
anything else you can
think of. Many captains in
Florida do not supply
lunch but will have bever-
ages aboard; in some
cases, the captain expects
the clients to bring some-
thing for him to eat. Ask
about length of day and
how long you'll be fishing:
for many the length of
day is dock-to-dock. Get
as many details as possi-
ble worked out before
you book, so there's no
confusion or awkward
moments later.
After you've done your
homework and booked a
guide, you have a few
responsibilities to consid-
er. Show up at the
appointed place on time
and be ready to go. Bring

An angler sets.up'one of his fishing rods on the shore as he prepares to catch home-
bound salmon near Toyokoro in northern Japan last September. Hundreds of anglers,
with up to seven rods each, pack the shore every fall when salmon season fires up.

spectacular flies. And
most of the men
Umy age aie the
heavy-hit-
ters of fly
fishing
from all
over


the nation.I am kind of
the mascot of the group,
which is fine with me.
They expect me to sciew
up and I never disap-
point a ciowd.
Now,about the event: It
took us almost a year to
get Lely for a day of
casting advice he has
a poetry full schedule for
an 81 year-old guy. And,
of course, the one day \ve
were privileged with his
company the weather
was simply hellish.
i Remember that torren-
tial super-storm the first
Saturday of this
month?) Many
other public
events were
cancelled that
day. But we are
fishermen, sup-
posedly with
thicker
Skin


than the average pei son
--or maybe just thicker
heads. AnNway, the show
\vent on.
We were packed
indoors in a low-
ceilinged room for mio'st
of the morning, so Left .
didn't dd6muih hands-on
casting education (whip-
ping fly lines is kind of a
hard on the light sock-
ets). But this actually
turned into blessing. We
were huddled indoors
with the proclaimed
* expert of our sport. No
way could he escape.
Lefty Kreh certainly
doesn't look like a god of
the fishing world, nor
does he act like one. In
fact, I believe his short
stature and jovial man-
ner are what make him a
great teacher. He is more
approachable than some
of my snooty relatives.
He answers all questions
without sneering at your


(my) lack of basic knowl-
edge. I'll bet you could
do a cartoon of him and
he would think it was a
riot unlike places
-where cartoons start
riots.
But Bernard "LeftV"
. Kreh is definitely a
celebrity. And that means
a lot of people claim him
as a lifetime buddy. Prior
to his lisit, our fly fishing
club was abuzz with "me
and Lefty" stories. I had
never met him, but many
claimed to know his
tastes in everything from
fishing hooks to desserts.
A few of the truly inse-
cure babbled endlessly
about their "good friend
Lefty Kreh." Going strict-
ly by these accounts,
Lefty Kreh has more
close friends than a con-
gressional lobbyist.
Evidently. fish size is not
the only topic where
anglers stretch.the truth.


It was still raining, but
we moved outside to
watch Lefty in action.
There were three inches
of water covering the
ground and it was down-
right cold. But that didn't
stop'Lefty from strutting
his stuff. Talk about
multi-tasking he can
tell jokes, answer ques-
tions and zip a fly line
out 70 feet in 20-mph
winds.
I was doing~my best to
concentrate on his
instructions. But my feet
started to itch. Darn wet
shoes should have
worn socks. Ouch...
ouch! Hey, that's not an
itch that's a bite! Oh,
you have to be kidding
me. What are fire ants
doing floating along in
this flood? It can't be.
And I'm allergic to them.
I ran back to the shelter

Taking stock of funny outdoor names


Outdoor enthusiasts
have always had a
funny way of look-
ing at things. You can fig-
ure this out at the next
cocktail party when city
slickers give you wide
eyes while you dominate
the conversation with
tales of fish and game.
It's true we speak a
much different language
than non-outdoorphiles.
And no better case for this
quirk can be found in the
names we attach to places
in the outdoors.
This habit is so
ingrained in the outdoor
heart that it even makes
its way onto charts pub-
lished by the U. S. govern-
ment (and others).
Near Bull Bay in
Charlotte Harbor, there is
a place you can find on
the charts simply called
the Eagle's Nest. It's been
called that for a very long
time and for good reason.


OUTDOOR ADVENTURES


G.B.
Knowles


There is an eagle's nest
in the area and it has
been there for a very long
time. We now know that
American bald eagles
often use the same nest-
ing site for generations.
These birds also appear to
have long lives, when pol-
lution and habitat loss
does not overwhelm
them. So it seems to rea-
son that the "Eagle's Nest"
has been there for at least
a half century, maybe


twice that. Yet for most of
the time before charts,
fishermen found their
way here by the lonely
beckoning of the big nest
in a lone pine or cedar.
Now eagles move their
nests and often use sever-
al, alternating every few
years. Yet they seem to
keep them all in the same
general area. Hence, an
eagle's nest was a good
place to use as a land-
mark. A hurricane might
blow down your favorite
marker tree but the eagles
would rebuild in the same
neighborhood.
You can find the same
such transfer from folk
name to mapped locality
in the deep woods. To this
day,unique places such
as Hell's Half Acre and the
menacing panhandle
swamp known simply as
Tate's Hell (I'd like to know
who Tate was) are on the
map. Early outdoorsmen


named them and they
named them well. I've
been to both places and
just turned around and
went back. Trust me, they
are named appropriately.
But I think I know how
they got those dire names.
I've spent a lot of time
hunting in southern
Florida in conditions sim-
ilar to the two "Hells." In
fact, Hell's Half Acre isn't
far from where I hunt.
When I first began
hunting this country, it
was with many luminar-
ies along. Florida
Sportsman Magazine saw
many attendees, includ-
ing the late Biff Lampton,
publishers Karl and Blair
Wickstrom and humorist
Vic Dunaway.
Other visitors included
Outdoor Life Magazine
editor Vin Sparano,
Tampa Tribune outdoor
editors Herb Allen and
Frank Sargeant arid Byron


Stout of the Fort Myers
News-Press.
A lot of famous fishing
guides also came to this
camp along with some
Miccosukee Indian visitors
- we were, after all, just a
few short miles away from
one of their northernmost
settlements.
But when we first came
to die canip, it was chris-
tened in fliat odd outdoor
way we do things.
One woods road had an
old white five-gallon
bucket stuck in a cabbage
palm to mark the turn
when the water was high
and you could not see the
road. It remains to this
day the White Bucket
Road.
On our original voyage
of discovery to this place,
we ventured down, anoth-
er trail overgrown with
dog fennels and were
more lost than most of us
had been in a while.


Along this road we hap-
pened on a dead armadil-
lo. For lack of more origi-
nality, it remains the
Armadillo Road.
Somebody else may
rename it someday, but it
won't be any of us who
braved the lost woods and
head-high dog fennels. A
dead armadillo just kind
of fit the place.
I think I know a little bit
about what Tate must
have gone through.
On another hunting
lease, a teenage buddy of
mine and I once tried to
take a short cut around a
cypress pond. It was ripe
with downed giant,
cypress, thorn vines and
brimming with cotton-
mouth moccasins, a dan-
gerous kind of snake.
Given our lost nature -
and the snakes we had
to take our time getting

Highlights from Snook V Q

S nook \ -.as held last
week at the Fish Henry Heron. .. ,
and Wildlife H *
Rep'-p rch dnhririitutieihed- c4 -


quarters in St.
Petersburg and could
have been titled "All You
Ever Wanted to Know
About Snook." Snook V
was a fILum which
brought together 180
people from all over the
southern half of Florida,
each of w hom has a per-
sonal or professional
relationship with snook.
The attendees included
biologists, fishery man-
agers, fishing guides,
avid recreational
anglers, members of the
outdoor media, law
enforcement, fishing
tournament directors
and others. The group
was so large and diverse
that I doubt there is
much of anything about
snook that wasn't known
by someone there.
Following are some
highlights from the two-
day event, though there
was far more informa-
tion discussed than
could possibly fit in this
space probably
enough for at least ohe
or two good books.


"I don't care if it was a bargain ...
take it back this minute."


New species of
snook

One of the tidbits
released by the FWRI staff
was that there are now
confirmed to be five
species of snook in
Florida waters, up from
the four species which
have been previously
identified. The newly
identified snook is the
largescale fat snook


(Centropomus mexi-
canus), sometimes called
a "Mexican snook." Don't
get too excited about your
fishing prospects regard-
ing the new snook, how-
ever; like most of the oth-
ers, it doesn't get big
enough to be a keeper.

East coast vs.
west coast
' Recent research involv-
ing tag and release stud-
ies andcDNA sequencing
have confirmed that
there are separate snook
stocks on the east and
west coasts of Florida,
and that the fish grow
and behave differently.
East coast snook tend to
move more while Gulf
coast snook tend to stay
in the same general areas
for most of their lives,
except for seasonal
inshore and offshore
migrations. One snook
tagged on the east coast


traveled across die state,
presumably %ia the
* Okeechobee Watervway,
and took up residence .
in Southwest Florida.
Most snook found in the
Florida Keys are geneti-
cally similar to snook
from the east coast, and
it is believed thar snook
in the Keys may not
spawn successfully,
meaning most Keys
snook probably migrated
down from the east coast.
Gulf snook populate
Everglades National Park,
but it seems they seldom
cross Florida Bay to end
up in the Keys.

Snook numbers
on the rise

A stock assessment
study on snook in Florida
was completed last year,
using data through 2004..
Great news: There are
probably more snook in
Florida waters now than
at any time in the past 20
years. The estimated pop-
ulation of snook in
Florida waters was esti-
mated at approximately
840,000 fish in 1987; by
2004 the population had
essentially doubled to
almost 1,750,000 fish.
Better news for Gulf
anglers is that most of the
population growth has
occurred on the west
coast of Florida, where
the estimated population
of snook has grown from
approximately 397,000 in
1987 to approximately
1,250,000 in 2004, a more
than threefold increase.

Angling pressure
rising, too

Now for the bad news:
From 1981 to 2003,
angling pressure on snook
is estimated to have
increased approximately
sixteenfold. There is no
doubt that snook are a
popular target among
anglers and that
Southwest Florida is a hot
spot of snook fishing. Lee
County led the state in


snook stamp sales last
year, with nearly 13,000.
Charlotte County, with a
much smaller population,
came in seventh in the
entire state with over
8,000 snook stamps sold.
That's well over 20,000
confirmed snook anglers
in the Charlotte Harbor
area, but that's not all of
' them. The following
groups of people can fish

It's time for the Citgo Bassmaster Classic


OK, all you freshwa-
ter fishing fanatics,
it's time for the
Citgo Bassmaster Classic
fishing tournament. This
month Florida will play
host to the top bass
anglers in the world. Lake
Toho will be the launch
site for the tournament. If
you want to meet your
favorite bass angler, that
is the place to be; once
they get back into
Orlando for the daily
weigh-ins, you may never
find them again.
This is bass fishing's
biggest stage. No other
bass tournament draws
this kind of attention. The
Japanese contingency of
bass anglers is always well
represented, anid the
press corps from their
native land is present in
full force for this event.
Whoever thought bass
fishing would carry this
kind of coverage? And of
course, ESPN will be


TouRNAmENT BASSIN'





- -


Greg
Bartz


broadcasting live as the
action unfolds.
This is the event that
can define a bass angler's
career. Last year's winner,
Kevin Van Dam, is a leg-
end in the bass fishing
world. The prior winner,
Takahiro Omori, was the
first foreigner to win the
event and has done very
well for himself fishing for
bass on American waters.
Prior to Omori, it was the
wild and outrageous Mike
laconelli.who captured the


title. Ike, as he is affection-
ately known on the tour, is
as wild as they come, but
he has brought that "per-
sonality" to the sport to be
built on in the future.
The one thing I have
found while covering
these events in the past is
these anglers are very
accessible in their own ele-
ment. At the ramp, they
are more than happy to
talk bass fishing with all
who come up to-their
boat. They are happy to
divulge information on
how they caught their fish
and even enlighten locals
on the locations where
they have been fishing.
One of the best conver-
sations I have ever had
with an angler occurred
about four years ago
while I ran a camera boat
for ESPN up on the Harris
chain of lakes. It was the
morning before the sec-
ond day of competition
and I had launched my


boat early to get out of the
way of the competition so
they could get their boats
in the water. When I
pulled my boat up on die
bank, I happened to be
sitting next to Denny
Brauer. I casually asked
him how he had done on
his first day of competi-
tion and he mentioned he
had only caught one fish.
He thought I was a com-
petitor and asked me how
I had done. I smiled and
said tlank for thde conm-
pliment but I was just,
running a camera boat. It
happened to be very cold
that weekend and he said,
"There has to be some-
thing better to do than
being up here watching
us struggle." We both
laughed and I told him
my son had a baseball
tournament coming up
but it was not until the
following weekend.
We got into a big con-
versation about his son


Chad playing sports (he
now fishes professionally
as well) and what it was
like to be gone as much as
he was chasing bass
around the United States.
It was nice to hear a bass
professional talk openly
and honestly about his
family and what he
thought about his son in
sports. For a time, it was
just two dads talking and
bragging about their boys.
But that is the side of the
angler you get to see when
you can catch him for a
few minutes at the ramp.
The event itself is uuly
amazing )to isualize. To
see something like this is
a rare moment in time. As
anglers, you just want to
be part of it. For those of
us who fish in tourna-
ments, it's the chance to
witness a fisherman real-
ize a dream of a lifetime
by winning the biggest
bass event of our time. We
all look to this tourna-


ment as the true crown
jewel of bass angling.
I will be in attendance
once again, not only cov-
ering the event and
reporting on it, but also
running a boat for ESPN
to provide coverage for
"on-the-water" action. It
will be the first Classic
that I get to attend and be
a small part of. I am truly
looking forward to it.
I hope all of you who
enjoy bass fishing as
much as I do get a chance
to get out and see the
weigh-ins in Orlando, or
make it to the city ramp
on the north end of Lake
Toho to witness the
anglers coming off the
water. It is a wonderful
experience and something
you will always remember.
You know, they all started
off just like we did, fishing
local club tournaments.
They know that as well
and are very good to their
public supporters.

SNOOK
From page 8

for snook in Charlotte
Harbor without buying
snook stamps: Florida
residents over age 65, all
anglers under age 16 and
Florida residents fishing
from shore or from piers.
Customers of fishing
guides and charter boats
are allowed to fish under
a vessel license, but each
vessel license only counts
as one snook stamp.
Because of all these
exemptions, it's impossi-
ble to know how many
anglers target snook here,
but there could easily be
just as many fishing here
without a snook stamp as
there are with one, which
would put the number of
snook fishermen around
40,000. That's a bunch of
fishermen.

Management fails
to achieve goal

Fishery managers try to
assess the health of snook
stocks by evaluating a
number called die
Spawning Potendiai Ratio,
or SPR, for the stock. SPR,
is the ratio of the existing
biomass of sexually
mature female snook to
what is estimated to be
the biomass which would
exist if there was no
angling pressure if
nobody ever fished for
snook. In 1994, an SPR
goal of 40 percent was set
for snook and manage-
ment measures taken
since that time have been
designed to achieve the 4.0
percent benchmark. Most
other species in Florida
are managed with a lower
target SPR, but the higher
40 percent goal for snook
was selected because
snook stocks can be deci-
mated by unusually cold
winters and because there
are many snook anglers
who would like to see
more very large trophy-
sized snook than would
result from a lower SPR
goal. Currently, the SPR
for Atlantic coast snook is
in the 25-26 percent
range, while on the Gulf
coast it's a bit better in the
26-32 percent range. It's


estimated that if the cur-
rent snook regulations are
left in place, the SPR for
snook on the Gulf Coast
will fall substantially as
the huge increase in fish-
ing pressure outstrips the
pace at which the stock is
currently expanding.

Threats to snook

There are a number of
threats to the future
health of snook stocks,
but the rapid population
growth being experienced
by Florida contributes to
two of the direst. The first
is the loss of habitat, espe-
cially mangrove habitat.
Snook in Florida are gen-
erally found south of a
line drawn from Cape
Canaveral to Tarpon
Springs, which is also
approximately where
mangroves are found. This
is likely not a coincidence.
Thousands of acres of
mangroves have been
removed from Florida's
coastlines to make room
for coastal development
in recent decades, and it's
possible we may be
approaching the carrying
capacity of the remaining
habitat. In other words,
snook populations might,
soon be limited by the
amount of remaining
mangrove shoreline,
especially on the east
coast, where in some
areas there is very little *
natural habitat at all.
There have been some
very successful habitat
restoration projects
undertaken on the east
coast which show that, at
least on a small scale, habi-


tat can be restored, though
it is very expensive.
The second major
threat to snook stocks
resulting from skyrocket-
ing population growth is
simply the huge increase
in angling pressure on
these fish. In 2004, it is
estimated that approxi-
mately 2.1 million snook
were caught on the Gulf
coast, but the total snook
population is only about
1.25 million fish. This
stunning statistic means
that, on average, every fish
in the population is
caught almost twice every
year, which only works
because it's estimated that
97 percent of the snook
caught on the Gulf coast
are released. In 2004, there
were approximately
69,000 snook taken from
Gulf waters, but the num-
ber of snook which were
estimated to have died .
.after being released alive
was just below 44,000.
Nearly 40 percent of the
snook we killed in 2004
were fish that we released.
But wait it turns out
that die number of
released snook which later
die is calculated by
assuming that only 2.13
percent of released fish
die, a number which I
believe is unrealistically,
low. I suspect that in
Charlotte Harbor dolphins
eat at least that many
released snook. If the
actual percent of released
fish which died were 4
percent, then we would be
killing more released
snook than filleted snook.
If the percentage of
released fish which die

was closer to 10 percent,
then it could turn out that
we might not be able to
afford to harvest ANY
snook if angling pressure
gets high enough. That's a
scary thought, and one
that deserves much more
study.
There are more issues as
well. For example, the
effects of last year's red
tides are not reflected in
the current stock assess-'
ment, which was complet-
ed using data through
2004. Besides the fact that
significant numbers of
snook were killed by red
tide, it's also possible that
spawning may have been.
disrupted in many coastal
inlets by outbreaks which
occurred during peak
spawning times. This is
something that likely won't
be known until next year,
because it takes almost
two years for snook to
grow enough to be consis-
: tently sampled by meth-
ods currently employed by,.
fishery biologists.


Another potential
threat is looming this fall.
Effective July 1, the FWC
is changing the method
used to measure the
length of fish. Currently
the technique used is to
measure the length of a
snook (and other species)
with the fish lying in a
natural state atop a meas-
uring board, tape or stick.
Effective July 1, anglers
will be required to pinch
the tails on fish as the
measurement is made.
This may seem like a
small point, but with a
borderline legal-sized
snook of about 26 inches
the difference between a
pinched tail and a non-
pinched tail is about
three-quarters of an inch.
Because most shook are
harvested soon after they
reach the 26-inch mini-
mum size limit, there are
always a bunch of them
which fall just short of the
mark. Quick calculations
done by the FWRI staff
showed that when the


regulation changes this
summer, the change
could result in a 22 per-
cent surge in the number
of snook harvested in the
short term. I believe this
unintended result of the
change in measurement
technique was not antici-
pated by fishery man-
agers and it could have
serious consequences
down the road.
Fortunately, snook season
is closed in July and
August, so there are a
couple of extra months
for this issue to be exam-
ined before the fish begin
to suffer.
Let's go fishing!

LEFTY
From page 4

where I was rescued by
* some fly-fishing wives,
who provided treatment
and solace.
Yes, solace. Look, I've
been waiting a year to get
some hands-on casting
education from the best
in the business. Instead,
here I am in a folding
chair scratching my feet.
Then I started to physi-
cally react to the little
beasties'.bites and had to
go home and sleep it off
with a Benadryl.
Sometimes life is cruel.
Even this setback didn't
prevent me from practic-
ing tacky behavior.'
Before I left, I had anoth-
er member take a picture
of me with my arm
wrapped around Lefty's
shoulder. After waking
from my snooze, I quick-
ly printed out the picture
as a full page photo. That
evening at the ending
banquet, as Lefty pre-
pared a talk called "Why
We Fish," I asked him to
autograph the picture.
He likes to personalize
his messages.
So what words did I ask
Lefty to scrawl across my
barely-dry color print-
out? Well, of course: "To
my good friend, Tom
Johnson, All the best."
I'm going to put it in my
old high school diploma
frame and hang it near
the door in my home so
every visitor (and pizza
delivery man) will see it.
I know from your very
proper point of view, this
action sounds like shame-
less behavior. But you're
just jealous. Unlike me,
you aren't close friends
with Lefty Kreh.

Rigging your shrimp backwards for distance


or many anglers,
wintertime and
shrimp go land in
hand. The livebait supply
(white bait, sardines, etc.)
is limited for the most
part and the shrimp run
larger and are generally
more abundant during
this time. In addition to
this good old stand-by,
there is no doubt that as
soft plastic artificial baits
become more effective,
our confidence increases
and more of us will come
to rely on artificial. And
of all the different styles
of plastic baits, the
shrimp imitation is prob-
ably one of the most
common.
I bring this up because
when rigging and pre-
senting an artificial soft
plastic shrimp, you have
to consider how a shrimp
naturally moves. The -

motion under typical
conditions, but if they are

threatened or put in a
defensive posture they
can and will jump back-
wards very quickly. So
. does that mean we can
rig both ways? Well, there
are pre-rigged plastic
baits on the market
already manufactured
each way. I have found
that whether rigged with
just a simple jig head or
set up weedless with a
weighted or unweighted
hook and a hitchhiker,
there is one big advan-
tage of rigging these baits

backwards they cast a
lot further.
In order to run \\eed-
less, I might rig a light-
shank weighted hook set
up w\idi a hitchhiker and a
three-inch Gulp shrimp.
By backwards, I am refer-
ring to which end of the
bait I attach the rig.
Instead of attaching the
hitchhiker to the head of
the bait and setting the
hook more towards the
back of the body, I'll cut
the tail off the bait and
attach the hitchhiker at
the tail end and then set
the hook more towards the
head. In many types of
bait, the head of the bait
weighs more than the tail
- and therein lies the dif-
ference. When the hitch-
hiker is attached at the
head or front of the bait,
the tail leads the bait when
a cast is made. On the.
other hand, when the bait
is rigged from the tail and
the heavier head section is

gear strewn around the
deck of his boat. If you are
bringing your tackle,
make sure it is rigged and

am confident that the fish
don't seem to mind. In
fact, the same type rig is
very popular with anglers
using live shrimp.
.Whether you are looking..
to run a live shrimp a bit
more weedless or just try-
ing to improve casting
distance, it is a common
practice to cut off the tail
and rig with a worm-style
hook. The hook is run


with the respect you
would expect yourself.
There are a few things
you should expect from
the guide. He should be
ready to go when you
arrive and make every
effort to ensure the suc-
cess of your trip in a pro-
fessional manner. His
gear should be rigged and
ready and in tip-top

the livewell, boat fueled,

date and ready for the
day. He should already
know what you expect
and have a game plan

through the tail and then
back into the body -
kind of like a Texas rig.
Most anglers will also add
a small split shot just up
from the hook to add a .
little weight. And in both
cases, by cutting off the
tail you are adding a bit of
additional scent by cut-

prepared. His profession-
alism should be evident
the moment you stop
aboard his boat.
An excellent guide will
work very hard to ensure
your success but as
happens in fishing, not
every day will be filled
with catching fish. You'll
be able to tell whether he
worked hard to put you
into fish or he just didn't
care. It's common to tip
your guide at the end of
the day. The customary
amount changes from
area to area and is a per-
sonal choice, but a good
rule of thumb is to tip
according to effort and
not the number of fish
caught 10-20 percent
of the fee is common.
Many lasting friend-
ships have formed
between guides and
clients .over the years and
this is an added benefit. A
good guide is worth his
daily fee in more ways
than just catching fish.

W Infrequently get
he oppoiutnity
to take advantage
of a day to go fishing
when conditions are per-
fect. NMost days when
diose conditions come
around, we are preoccu-
pied by other doings like
work, honey-do's and lack
of time to go.
On a recent outing, I
was joined by a friend
who was no srnanger to
fishing. Kevin Ferni has
spent many days fishing
Tampa Bay and the
Everglades. We knew that
die conditions for the next
morning were going to be
just about perfect. We
decided to hit the water at
6:30 a.m. and do some
scouting. Tournament
redfish season is quickly
approaching, so it %was a
good excuse to get out.
Some of you reading
this may be wondering
what die perfect-condi-
tion day looks like. After


W\AL i Fi-iriji,


Capt. Jay
Withers

spending many days on
the water trying to figure
out a pattern of when red-
fish feed, I have come up
my oiwn theory of when
die perfect conditions are.
In my opinion, the best
scenario for catching tail-
tng redfish is pie-front at
dead low ride widi a partly
cloudy sky. Picture this: A
cold front is due by late
evening and we ha\ e an
extreme low tide of a 0.6
and low tid& is 7:16 a.m.
Now that we have set
the stage, here is the rest


of the story. Kein and I
left the Placida boat ramp
at 7 a.m. and made die
run south to Pine Island. I
had seen some redfish on
a long sandbar before and
thought this might just be
the day they would eat.
We arrived at our desti-
nation at 7:20 and the tide
was not moving yet. We
waited until the tide bent
the turtle grass over and
sure enough, there were
redfish tails.
I have noticed that if
you plan to fish for tailing
redfish, you need to be in
position before the tide
starts to move in. Getting
into position will elinii-
nate any possibility of
spooking fish. We had over
15 tailing redfish within
casting distance. Kevin
made the first cast at a
headstanding redfish. I
like to see redfish do
head lands because that
means they are aggres-
sively feeding and will eat


anything that gets in their
way. Kevin was using a
diree-inch Berkley Gulp
shrimp in molting color; I
was using the same in a
natural color.
Kevin hooked tup short-
ly after we started to see
fish and the first one was
a nice one. The first red-


fish to the boat was 28
inches and nearly eight
pounds. We caught sever-
al fish that day, but after
about rwo hours the tail-
ers were gone.
The fishing w\as pretty
good and it was great to
get out and do some fish-
ing of my own. Kevin and I


share thdie same passion for
catching tailing redfish and
we both will remember the
day of perfect conditions.
We are not always able
to take advantage of days
when the conditions are
at their best, but when we
can, we anempt to live life
to its fullest. Tight lines.

Fly fisherman Lefty Kreh -


By CAPT. ROD WALINCHUS
WATERLINE EDITOR
A anyone remotely associated
with fly fishing knows who
1 efty.Kreh is. Most have
seen him cast, give seminars
and speak at some outdoor
show or another. Spend any
amount of time with him and
you'll come away feeling as if
you've made a lifelong friend. It's


a sure bet that when a group of
fly fishermen gather someone
will remark that they are a per-
sonal friend of the man (see
Tom Johnson's column). It's
Lefty's nature to put everyone at
ease with his unassuming, good-
natured personality he simply
makes everyone welcome.
One of his unique traits is his
uncanny ability to remember


faces and the names of people
he casually meets. This trait is
why most fly fishermen consider
him a friend. There is no false
pretense to the man what you
see is what you get. Yet there is
no question that he is a true liv-
ing legend in the halls of fly fish-
ing. His revolutionary, yet rela-
tively simple, approach to the
sport especially fly casting -


has enabled thousands to more
fully enjoy the sport for what it
is. Spend an hour with him and
you're guaranteed to come away
more knowledgeable and enthu-
siastic about fly fishing. His gen-
uine love for what he does trans-
fers to all around one wants
to cast better, tie flies better and
generally fly fish better because
of him.


We all know who he is, his
exploits, his style of casting and
his teachings. Nearly anyone
who fly fishes owns one of the
many books he has-written; his
Practical Knots II has been
translated into over 14 different
languages and sold millions of
copies. Check your library, I'll
bet you own a copy. He gave me
the opportunity to illustrate that


Page 20


~''7?'






Page 21


- the man and the legend


book and nearly 30 others he
wrote an opportunity for
which I can't even begin to
explain how grateful I am to him
- and have come to know him
over the years on a slightly more
personal level than many.
Lefty is 81 years old, married
to his wife Evelyn for more than
50 years and has children,
grandchildren and great grand-


children yet he maintains a
full schedule of travel, writing,
speaking engagements and
research. And he still finds time
to Offer private casting lessons
and respond to all the mail and
phone calls he gets. He is the
most sought-after personality in
the sport. A schedule like his
would surely wear down any
man, but Lefty remains ener-
getic and upbeat -just attempt
to make him stop casting while
the audience is still asking ques-
tions.
Lefty attributes his start in
the world of fly fishing to Joe
Brooks, a legend in his own
right. After Lefty was discharged
from the service at the age df 19
--he fought in the Battle of the
Bulge and earned five battle
stars he returned to his home
in lManlaind in 1945. He became
a shift leader at Fort Detrick and
helped produce bacteria like
anthrax used in biological war-
fare situations. He remained at
this job from 1946 until 1964.
While employed there, he was
one of three employees who
contracted anthrax the other
two died, but Lefty survived.
immediatelyy after the
anthrax scare of the 9/11 event,
the NewYork Times called Lefty.
to interview him about anthrax.
It was then he discovered that
because he was exposed to
anthrax and survived, his
employer isolated a deadlier
strain of anthrax from blood
taken during his stay in the hos-
pital. The strain developed was
named thd B\K strain, an
acronym for Bernard Victor
Kreh,
Lefty was a shift leader work-
ing the midnight shift for nearly
19 years, which enabled him to
spend major portions of his days
hunting and fishing. He hunted
or fished nearly 300 days a year
during this period, obviously
becoming quite adept at each.
He became an exhibition shoot-
er for Remington Arms and
taught the sport for many years.
He also became a very good
fisherman in his local waters
and caught the attention of Joe
Brooks, who hired him as a
guide. Joe asked if Lefty minded
if he used his fly rod and pro-
ceeded to outfish Lefty on his
home waters. This was the start
ofLeftr's interest in fly fishing.


Later, Lefty began to write for
local newspapers and maga-
zines. In 1959, Fidel Castro took
over Cuba and realized he need-
ed the U.S.'s financial capital to -
make his country work, and so
began to court U.S. interests.
Castro hired Joe Brooks to bring
American writers to Cuba to
promote the sport fishing indus-
try, and Joe invited Lefty to visit
and cover the 14th Hemingway
White Marlin Tournament. Lefty
spent two days aboard Castro's
boat and two days aboard
Hemingway's and had the
opportunity to learn from both.
He said the tournament was
held just one week after Castro's
takeover and gunshots could
still be heard in the hills sur-
rounding Havana. Interestingly,
most marlin were caught in the
harbor, within sight of people
walking the streets of Havana.
Joe Brooks was once again
instrumental in Leftys career as
he was responsible for bringing:
him to Miami to run the presti-
gious MET Tournament for the
next eight years. That sealed
Lefty's fate and his career took
off. He then became the outdoor
editor for the St. Petersburg
Times and helped start Florida
Sportsman magazine with V'ic


Dunaway. Vic was the editor and
Lefty associate editor. Lefty
stayed with the St. Pete Times
for a year, then the Baltimore
Sun called and offered him the
position of outdoor editor.
Wanting to stay in Florida, Lefty
declined but ensuing calls
assured him he would make
over twice his salary and better
benefits, so he
took the posi-
tion. There he
wrote three
weekly
columns until
his retirement
in 1992. His
position at the
Baltimore Sun
opened the
floodgate of
travel and
seminars. The
rest is history.
He loves tfly
fishing, and
.according to
him is still
learning it's
the nature of
the sport that .-::
no one will
ever be the
master ot it.
He relates a


tale of learning a new knot from
a 12 year-old in front of a full-
house audience at a large audi-
torium in California as an exam-
ple. His advice: Take the time to
learn how to cast better; you'll
enjoy the sport more.
. The man is truly unique -
we are all better fly fishermen, if
not people, because of him.

Rare Risso's dolphin released from rehab


T ast summer, two
|Risso's dolphins were
rescued south of
Marco Island. Last week,
one of them returned to
the wild.
As I reported in this col-
uno last summer, five
Risso's dolphins were
stranded last July in
Caxambas Pass, just south
of Marco Island. It was
remarkable because
Risso's are a deep-water
offshore species that even
most experts haven't seen.
They were four males
and a female. Why they
were traveling together is
still uncertain, although
sick dolphins tend to
move to shallower water
where it's easier for them
to breathe. Risso's are
highly social another
reason they may have
stayed together too long
- but it's rare for as many
as five to strand them-
selves.
By the time the

Feeding time after the cold front blows through


I~ ~i:. /7,,


T his past week,
Central and
Southwest Florida
received a real taste of
what a Florida winter
storm is all about. As the
cold front approached
and eventually stalled
over us, it created what
the meteorologists
referred to as a "railtrack
rain," bringing a deluge of
precipitation in a short
amount of time. The
heavy rain was accompa-
nied by high winds and
way too much lightning.
Fishing and being suc-
cessful at it are often
closely associated with
weather. If you've had a
great day catching fish,
more than likely it had
more to do with what the
barometric pressure was
doing than your level of
skill at catching fish.
A simple truth I've
come to know-is when the
weather is starting to
change, such as when a

SWith ditheGulf water
temperatures dipping
down into the 60s, now is
a good time to hit those

handling these fish to be
released, I allays try to
hold them up off the deck
and handle them as care-
fully as possible. The idea
is to return the fish to the
water as quickly as possi-
ble. If the fish is gut-
hooked or hooked deep in,
the mouth, consider cut-
ting the line as close to


die hook as possible. This
has two benefits: The fish
is returned to the water
quickly and has a.much
better chance of surdial
than if the hook is force-
fully ripped out, causing
damage that will-most
likely kill the fish; If you

using circle hooks is not
to s.et die hook when the
fish takes the bait. Just
gendy raise your rtid and
start cranking the reel.
This allows the circle
hook to work itself into
the fish's mouth. Most of
the time, a circle hook will

REHAB
From page 22

Bonnie took ill again -
this time with a virus.
Ultrasound testing uncov-
- ered a new wrinkle:
Bonnie was pregnant with
what appeared to be a
healthy, active calf.
A December release
was off, but early winter
might be possible. Clyde
was "almost too healthy
obnoxious, in fact,"
said Dr. Manire, giving his
team a harder and harder
time. He was, clearly ready
for the wild. But Mote
prefers to release rehabili-
tated dolphins in gro ups.
so he had to wait for
Bonnie to improve.
She did. Mote's weekly
reports on Bonnie are
optimistic into late
january. ("1/29: Dolphin
is very playful.") Then on
February 1, she stopped
eating. Over the next two
days, she rapidly deterio-
rated, and died at two in
the morning on February
3 of a massive blood clot
that blocked one lung. Dr.
Manire has yet to deter-
mine her underlying ill-
ness.
Bonnie's unborn calf
died, too. It was about 22
inches long half the -
length of a newborn
Risso's. But nothing is
known about their gesta-
tion, "so we don't know
how far-along she was
when she died, or
whether she got pregnant
while she was here," said
Dr. Manire, %isibly sad-
dened.
He paused after telling
me this. Then he bright-
ened. "But I tdink the
prognosis for Clyde is


in the 1940s. Fishing has
its share of names and
many rival the eagle's nest
in ingenuity.
Go to the Florida Keys
and you will find ahost of
interesting names. One of.
the best and only spots
for the first tarpon on fly
rods was a place called
the Nine,Mile Bank.
Another good spot was
the Arsnicker Bank.
Now both of these are
banks as in geologic fea-


great," he said, getting up
from his. chair. He led me
out to the tank where
Clyde was awaiting his
release. .: '-
Clyde was floating close
to the surface like a giant
black banana, the top of
his head just above water
and his flukes hanging
down, motionless. He
barely moved, listing
occasionally to one side ,
and his orange-sized
blowhole opening and
closing every so often. A
white "4" had been
fieeze-branded to his dor-
sal fin, for identification
in the wild.
Dr. Manire has fondly
called Clyde "lazy- a
typical male couch pota-
to," but he has found that
fast, open-ocean swim-,
mers like Risso's often
hang like this when
theN 're confined to a tank.
Clyde was now over 600
pounds and 9-1/2 feet
long less than 500
pounds and 2-1/2 feet
short of his adult dimen-
sions and had just
been pronounced ready
for release by the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration, which
must clear all rehabilitat-
ed marine mammals.
Dr. Manire had also
prepared two items that
would accompany Clyde
o .n his release: aVHF
radio and a satellite-
linked transmitter. Both.
Should attached to Clyde,
the radio to ensure that
he got off all right (it
would quickly fall off) and
the transmitter to provide
continuous data on
Clyde's location, depth
and time spent underwa-.
ter.
"We don't know how


tures, but the story I've
heard is that the banks
got their name through
another route. They were
so reliable in those halcy-
on days of the 1960s,
when marine fly fishing
was in its infancy, that
somebody called them
banks as in safe deposit .
boxes. The name stuck
and long time Keys guides
meant something quite
different than other folks
when they said they had


d ep they go or for how
long, so I'm excited to get
this data," said Dr.
Manire.
The remaining chal- :
lenge was to find a safe
way to get Clyde where he
needed to be about 100
miles offshore. Dolphins
need to be released either
where they were rescued
or, as in Clyde's case, in
their natural habitat.
But Mote had never
released dolphins this
large. Its best boats would
take well over 12 hours to
get out that far a
potentially very risky
amount of time for Clyde
to be out of thdie water.
Enter Tom Sanfone and
Cathy Unruh -- a male-
female pair from St.
Petersburg who own an
80-foot Lazarra yacht, the
"TomCat." "Mote had a
need, and we had a boat,"
says Unruh, a former
reporter for WTVT-TV
Channel 13 in Tampa and
a professed animal lover.
"We jumped at the oppor-
tunity to help Clyde
return to the wild."
Early in the morning on
Friday, February 10, over a
dozen volunteers helped
Clyde from the tank, put
him on a truck, and drove
him to Marina Jack's,
where the "TomCat" was
docked. He was trans-
ferred to the yacht, and at
8 a.m. the Mote team,
Unruh, and Sanfone set
off for their destination
115 nautical miles west of
Sarasota.
The six-hour ride was
smooth and the day .
sunny. The 40-odd volun-
teers on board took turns
keeping Clyde sprayed
with saltwater and cov-
ered widi towels and


to go to the "bank."
I guess the best fishing
hole name was coined by
my buddy Jeff Hilliard. Jeff
was working as party boat
captain when a group of
Pentecostal Christians
chartered the boat.
The weather wasn't
good, the fishing was slow
and poor Jeff had to move
the big, cumbersome,
boat about trying to find
some fish.
At some point, the fun-


sheets to prevent sun-
burn.
To keep him from
struggling and becoming
stressed, Clyde had been -
sedated. Volunteers also
leaned against his sides
the whole way out, pro-
viding a comforting pres-
sure.
Ten minutes before his
release, Clyde.was given a
reversing agent to coun-
teract the sedative, so he'd
be fully awake when he
was eased into the water.
At 2:28 in the afternoon,
Clyde was released.


damentalisrt gathered on'
the bow spit to join
together in a group prayer
at sea. On the next stop,
everybody's "luck", if you
want to call it that,
changed.
Suddenly the group
began catching huge red
grouper faster than leff
and his lone deck hand
could handle. They
caught so many grouper
so fast that Jeff and crew
had to leave the fish on


Jamie Tacy, who han-
dles-PR for Moti's aquari-
um, was there. "He dove
right away We thought we
saw'him once but he was
gone." The VHF radio
showed Clyde surfacing
every riinute and a half or
so.
Meanwhile, Unruh and
Sanfone whose gen-
erosity and hospitality
"were over and beyond
anything we could have
imagined," said Ta~y -
uncorked several bottles
of champagne and led the
team in a toast to Clyde.


the deck, re-rigging quick-
ly without taking the
hooks and leaders out of
the boated grouper.
Pandemonium ensued
and the fishing was fan-
tastic. Jeff keeps that
LORAN number sacred to
this day. Oh, he might
give out a lesser find to a
good friend, but not that
number.
I don't blame him, real-
ly. It's called the
Hallelujah Hole.


For Nlote, it was a far
cry from their typical
-release: spartan pontoon
boats, tossing waves, vol-
unteers getting seasick.
"It was as smooth as
could be," said Tacy. "After
seven months of hard:.,
work, it's just remark-
able." As she was telling
me this the afternoon fol-
lowing his release, Clyde
was steaming southward,
a hundred miles west of
Sanibel.

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Now that Kevin Ward has
received the go-ahead from
the Architectural Review
Board and the city's Planning
Commission for his newest
development, Kymberly's
Court on Park Boulevard
South between Menedez
Street and Armada Road, he
is offering preconstruction
deals to the first four buyers of
the new project.
Nine residents will be built
in three buildings linked by
private elevator lobbies,
which give the project the
look of a single building.
Parking will be offered on the
ground floor with the resi-


dences on the three upper
floors. Two parking spaces
have been allotted for each
residence.
Each home will measure
some 3,100 square feet and
will contain three-four bed-
rooms, including a master
suite, den, family room and
three bathrooms.
The master bath will have a
separate walk-in shower that
wraps behind the centrally
located tub. There will be twin
sinks, closeted toilet and 8-
foot closet. Also part
of the suite is a generous-
sized master study, Two
walk-in closets complete the
space. Both the master study
and one of the additional
bedrooms will have sliding


Side elevation of soon-to-be-built Kymberly's Court shows
upper porch areas and the ground floor entrance to parking
spaces for homeowners.


doors that open to an out-
side but covered veranda or
porch area. French doors
opening outward from the liv-
ing room also access that
space. A formal dining room
opens to another deck area,
which also can be accessed
by the den/bedroom on that
side of the building.
There are two additional
bedrooms within the split-
plan residence.
A gallery leads from the
home's entry 'foyer to the
central living area.
Each residence will have a
secure elevator entry, wrap-
around views and a private
entrance lobby. The location
is within walking distance of
the Venice beach and down-
town Venice.
Residences have been list-
ed at $1.375 million. Call for
preconstruction discounts.
Realtors Teresa Haberman
and Holly Barabas of Exit
Realty Gulf Coast are han-
dling sales for the project.
The Kymberly's Court show-
rooin is in Suite A, at 1000
Tamiarmi Trail.
The showroom is in Suite
A, 1000 Tamiami Trail in Ven-
ice. When not manned it can
be accessed by other Realtors
with a lockbox key or comput-
er code, Haberman said. For

Kyrnberly's Court, call Haber-
man at (941) 232-5104 or

spring of 2007.
