Venice's city manager admits the privatization
of the city's utilities department wasn't
just a matter of budgetary considerations.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


In August 2004, 13 Venice
utilities department employ-
ees were fired in what's re-
membered as Bloody Tues-
day. The city eliminated 16
supervisory positions, three
of which were vacant, and
hired a private utilities-
management company.
City Manager Marty Black
now acknowledges that the
privatization of the depart-
ment was not just for bud-
getary reasons, as he stated at
the time.
A private contractor was
the only way to meet the
"financial and management
needs" of a utility department
requiring a "radical, structural
change," he said Friday.
"Anything else. was just a
Band-Aid on the situation,"
Black said.
Some of the ousted erm-
ployees accused the city. of
manipulating
thebudget in
an effort to
fire supenri-
sors who may
have comnmit-
ted criminal .
violations of
the Clean
Water Act -
specifically Black
former Utilit-
ies Director John Lane and
former Assistant Director Pat
Wilson.
"You are about to make a
grave, grave mistake. ... Re-
place them (Lane and Wil-
son) with someone the city
manager can work with," for-
mer employee Bill Quigley
told council Aug. 17, 2004.
"These other people didn't do


a damn thing to deserve this."
The U.S. Attorney's Office
is expected to file individual
charges within the next two
months. No suspects have
been named, but many
assume Wilson and Lane will
be charged.
Black has stated on several
occasions that no current city
officials or employees are
under investigation. Venice
pleaded guilty in December
to three felony counts of vio-
lating Clean Water Act laws,
and agreed to assist in the
prosecution of any people
against whom charges are
brought.
No defense
If anyone is charged, he or
she won't be able to look to
the city for a defense attorney.
The transcript of a city
council "shade" out of the
"sunshine" meeting reveals
that severance agreements
with the 13 employees in-
cluded specific wording to
prevent Venice from having
to defend any of them against
charges from the Environ-
mental Protection Agency.
Employees had to sign the,
agreement in order to receive
nine weeks of severance pay.
In spite of that, Black still
maintains the firings were a
principally a budgetary deci-
sion, albeit one that decision
did correct other "symptoms"
of poor utilities department
management.
"I won't apologize or say
we didn't look at it compre-
hensively," Black said. "I think
the council and community
expect us to do that."
All but one fired employee

School referendum 2006 heats up
; -. re fe ren. h e a ts ,- ^ -' ...**-? rI '-*,-. ..---.. ; *^


More than half the funds raised under a
renewed 1-mill school tax would be used to
continue existing programs. The rest would go
toward broadly defined technology
programs and improved salaries.


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first
in a series on the upcoming March
14 referendum to continue the
current four-year school tax. For a
breakdown of the funds, see page
10. For contrasting opinions from
two county teachers, see page 11.
BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER'

With less than a month
to go before the March 14
vote on continuing Sarasota


County's 1-mill school tax,
debate is heating up in the
Venice area as voters look
for convincing evidence on
whether to support the ref-
erendum.
If voters approve the 1-
mill school tax another four
years, the district estimates
it will raise between $215
million, and $250 million,
depending on how property
values increase. One mill
equals $75 on a $100,000


house with a homestead ex-
emption.
'Renewal would not result
in a tax increase, as county
property owners are already
paying the extra mill.
Failure to approve the ref-
erendum could result in the
dismantling of many pro-
grams and salary cuts, send-.
ing the district into a tailspin,
say proponents.
Opponents aren't con-
vinced asking for a full mill
was necessary or that it was
needed for another four
years. Some want to see the
referendum fail and so the
district will come back with
a less expensive plan.
Early community dialogue
sessions provided the district


with an opportunity to ex-
plain its position to the pub-
lic, but there were no debates,
and the opportunity for air-
ing grievances was not maxi-
mized.
Spearheading referendum
support again is Citizens for
Better Schools, which took
the lead supporting the 2002
referendum. Reportedly the
organization hasn't raised
nearly the same level of inter-
est or funds as its previous
campaign. Only recently did
signs begin to appear in sup-
port of the referendum.
Continuing the mill anoth-
er four years hasn't sparked
the interest it did in 2002.

Tropical Bob is a lim Morris
fan. So when a tourist bureau .
contracted with Morris for ,
three songs promoting this
area, T.B. gave them a listen.
The signature song, "Magic
on the Water," praises our
island life.
But T.B.'s favorite is "I Don't I
Want To Go Home." Who
does? But if nobody goes
home, the scenic beauty
Morris croons about will soon
be paved over or blocked by
high-rises starting at $1.5 mil-
lion.
T.B. suggests Morris write TROPICAL BOB
"Don't Ask To Stay." WEATHER COMMENTS
"We love to have you visit,
to relax and fish and play, but
when your time is up, just please don't ask to stay."

Loveland club is AKtion in name and in


-BY CHRISTINA KALIHER
STAFF WRITER

Big smiles and even bigger
hearts filled the Olde World
restaurant Tuesday.
Loveland Center's AKtion
Club, part of Kiwanis Interna-
tional, holds monthly meet-
ings at Olde World to discuss
community service projects
and events.
Members are physically
and mentally disabled citi-
zens from the North Port and
Venice area.
According to AKtion Club
Advisor Patti Badolato,
AKtion Club is a service club
that meets for socialization
and fundraising.
The club is active in the
community. Members' ser-
vice has not gone unnoticed.
Last year, the Venice AKtion
Club won the Best AKtion
Club of Florida award
through the Florida Kiwanis
district.
"The winner is chosen
based on service projects and
member activity," Badolato
said. "The competition was
tough."
Past service projects in-
clude funding the 274th Mo-
bile Surgical Unit in Iraq and
adopting (cleaning up)
Woodmere Park in Venice.
Members also donated items
for Toys for Tots and sent
boxes of supplies to Hurri-
cane Katrina victims.
AKtion Club also donates
to the American Cancer So-
ciety and Head Start pro-


grams.
'Almost all the members
donate their time to commu-
nity service projects," Beverly
Miller, an incoming advisory
member, said.
Club members have vol-
unteered at the Sarasota
County Courthouse, Heritage
Nursing Home, Bon Secours
ALF, Venice Elementary
School, Loveland's Senior
Program, Children's First
Head Start Program, and
Sarasota County libraries.
Service and fun
When volunteering, mem-
bers keep a few things in
mind to help them focus on
the projects.
"They have fun in mind
and service for others," Gina
Schonfeld, another AKtion
Club adviser, said. "It doesn't
matter what they do, they
always have fun."
Like many other civic orga-
nizations, AKtion Club mem-
bers must also elect a presi-
dent, vice president, secretary
and treasurer.
The club sponsors yearly
elections.. Candidates must
actively volunteer in the com-
munity and give a speech to
fellow members.
The club members vote for
their favorite candidate.
"Next year, I'm going to be
president," Vice President
Bridget Meaney said.
Calling the meetings to
order is one of AKtion Club
President Barbara Wilson's
favorite parts of the club.

Mayor: Check your facts
The war of memos be-
tween Sarasota County and
the city of Venice has now
spread to Mayor Dean Cala-
maras and County Com-
mission Chairman David
Mills.
Mills responded to the
mayor's letter of several weeks
ago, criticizing county staff
stating the communication
problem does not rest with
county staff, and Sarasota
County's "comments" to the
state had no affect on the
state's questioning new devel-
opments in North Venice and
Laurel Road.
In his Feb. 14 letter answer-
ing Mills, Calamaras used
even stronger language and
saying "county staff's blind-
siding of the city is not an
acceptable practice," espe-
cially since it jeopardized
relocation of the Intracoastal
Waterway concrete plants.
"Your attempt to charac-
terize a formal letter to a
state review agency that was
not shared with the city or
the property owner as
indicative of a productive
and open line of communi-
cation is unbelievable,"
Calamaras wrote.
The mayor also pointed
out the real growth concern is
with Sarasota County, which
"in the past year alone,
approved a community larger
in population to the entire


city of Venice in the area
between Venice Avenue, Cen-
ter Road, Jacaranda Boule-
vard and River Road, an area
about half the geographic size
of our city."
Top city and county staff
are scheduled to meet
March 17. City council and
county commissioners will
meet April 6 or 7.
Planning commission
Tuesday
Planning commissioner
meets at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in
council chambers of city hall.
Items on the agenda include:
Variance petition for 601
Menendez St. on setbacks of a
single-family home.
Rezoning of 2201 Knights
Trail Road from rural to multi-
family (RMF-2), though the
applicant states development
would be no more than 8.02
units per acre. The develop-
ment would be on nearly 30
acres for 240 living units.
Don Caillouette, city
comprehensive planner, will
provide a transportation up-
date that will cover the new
light signal at Laurel and
, Knights Trail, U.S. 41 Bypass
widening and the Publix
pocket park that will double
as a bus stop.

ASSISTANT EDITOR

Venice Community Center
was advertised as becoming a
hurricane shelter. '
It was designed to be a hur-
ricane shelter.
It was renovated to be a
hurricane shelter.
It will be used as a hurri-
cane shelter.
That has become the
refrain from Venice City
Manager Marty Black when
discussing the $5 million ren-
ovation and expansion of the
VCC. About $1.8 million came
from the city's $10 million
bond referendum passed in
November 2003.
The city has come under
harsh criticism in recent
months over the possibility
the VCC will never be used as
an evacuation shelter be-
cause it is on Venice island,
just 2 miles from the Gulf of
Mexico. Some voters who
supported the 2003 bond
issue say that prospect was
never mentioned and have
accused the city of misleading
them.
When the. list of county
hurricane shelters is released
next month, Black believes all


of the critics will be silenced.
"I expect my support for
the community center as a
shelter will be clearly vindi-
cated to the media and the
community by the middle of
next month," Black told the
Bond Oversight Committee
on Friday.
'Not a lot of room'
The 2003 bond was passed
by voters- to pay for renova-
tion and expansion of the
community center, conver-
sioh of the old island sewage
plant into a park, rebuilding
of the fishing pier and the
beach renourishment pro-
ject.
So far, only the fishing pier
has reached close-out stage,
meaning every construction
bill has been paid. The VCC is
expected to be next, within
the next 45 days, Black said.
As long as all engineering
reports are independently
certified, the Red Cross has
determined the VCC could
provide safety for up to 655
people up through a Category
3 storm. This would resolve
months of criticism that the
city built a hurricane shelter it
could never use, all because
of storm surge.


Black said VCC also has
been recommended as a pet-
friendly shelter.
Ifiaki A. Rezola, senior
director of preparedness and
response for American Red
Cross of Southwest Florida,
has said a storm's path, pre-
dicted intensity and potential
to strengthen will decide if the
VCC is opened as an evacua-
tion shelter.
Staffing and volunteers to
run the shelter also will play a
role.
The Red Cross survey iden-
tifies which rooms can handle
special needs, how the audi-
torium stage would be the
storage/staging area and key
access points. At the required
20 square feet per person,
however, the community
center only has enough room
for up to 655 people, Rezola
said.
"We are looking at (the
community center), to have


that facility on the list for the V7
upcoming season," Rezola
said. "It's little by little. Steps rI
are being taken. ... Even if 1;
they do.open up that shelter,
655 is not a lot of space.
There's not a lot of room."

Chipper mill presents city challenges


Tile work


North Port decides it will file a lawsuit if that's
necessary to get Venice Land Clearing to pay fines
and return to the size of operation it originally
ran.


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR


Depending on how you
look at it, Venice Land Clear-
ing on Joe Jeff Street is a prof-
itable small business or a
huge nuisance.
To owner Steve Deans, it's a
moneymaker. To the drivers
who bring land-clearing mat-
erial to the site for mulching
and disposal, it's a cost-effec-
tive way to get rid of vegeta-
tive waste. To the city, it was a
convenient place to dispose
of waste from Hurricane
Charley and from construc-
tion of the new City Hall. But
to nearby residents, the oper-
ation is a nuisance. It's trucks
lined up on Joe Jeff all the way
to Tropicaire and blocking
entrance into private drives.
It's the constant beeping of
back-up warnings on several
pieces of heavy equipment,
and the dust and odor of a
large-scale mulching busi-
ness that has grown far
beyond its original plans.
Several residents, truck
drivers and small business
owners metWednesday to tell
North Port commissioners
their views of the chipper mill
on Joe Jeff Street.
"The chipper mill is a
clear-cut expansion of its ori-
ginal operations," said City
Attorney Robert Robinson.
"We've had some meetings
with the owner/operator and
I know the Department of
Environmental Protection is
negotiating a cleanup plan
with them."
"We could go to circuit.
court in Sarasota County to
force them to comply," Rob-
inson said, "or we could wait
and see what DEP is able to
accomplish."
t"Wha'r'w' can't do is shut .
them d6own'nitir'ely," he said.
"They are allowed to operate


as a legal nonconforming
business. So we need to find
some compromise here."
Sam Jones, director of
planning and zoning, ex-
plained that a nonconform-
ing business could still oper-
ate in an agricultural-zoned
area because it existed when
the code was first enacted.
"The businesses in the
estates were supposed to file
site plans, and the mulch pit
did," Jones said. "So now they
are supposed to operate in
the same way they described
on the site plan."
Robinson added that a
nonconforming business was
"grandfathered" and could
continue to operate as it had
been at that time.
"It's a legal property right
that goes with the land," he
said. "The right can be trans-
ferred when the property is
sold."
Residents raise issues
Neighbors complained the
business is expanding, add-
ing more equipment, taking
in more material and piling it
higher,,and operating longer
hours than it had when its
1989 plan was filed.
Tom Levesque, who lives
on Joe Jeff Street near the
mulch pit, said that the noise
of beeping equipment con-
tinues six days a week.
Henry Jakimer said trucks
lined up on the road waiting
to get into Venice Land Clear-
ing sometimes block his own
driveway. He said drivers
sometimes relieve them-
selves on the roadside while
waiting to get onto the prop-
erty.
. Walter Fritz, who lives ad-
jacent to the facility, said he
counted up to 50 trucks a day.
"If they charge. $1,000 a
load ahd'have 50 trucks,'that's
$50,000 a day," he said.


Drivers support business
John Bailey stated that the
facility made some changes
inside so that now trucks can
get onto the property and do
not have to line up on the
road. He also said there's a
portable toilet there for the
drivers to use.
Damian Ozark, a lawyer
representing Venice Land
Clearing, said that his client
has been meeting with Rob-
inson and Henry Jenkins,
assistant city manager, to
address the problems people
raised.
"My client, Steve Deans,
measures the piles of waste
every day to make sure they
are not over 30 feet," he said.
Ozark noted that Deans
was trying to listen to the
neighbors and address their
concerns.
"But there's an inconsis-
tency here. You said that he
(Deans) is in violation be-
cause he has more equip-
ment than in his original
plan. But then you said
Martin Septic was not in vio-
lation, even though Martin's
plan does not show any vehi-
cles."
Martin Septic, on the cor-
ner of Joe Jeff and Tropicaire
Boulevard, is also considered
a "grandfathered" noncon-
forming business.
The company filed a plan
in 1989 that showed parking
for six employee cars, but it
did not specify how many
vehicles of what type were
used by the business opera-
tions.


GRAPHIC COURTESY OF THE SOUTH COUNTY FAMILY YMCA
You can make a lasting impression by hanging your artwork in the new new South
County Family YMCA building. Your family's or business' artwork, crest, logo, message or
photo will be displayed on a tile art wall in the reception area of the new 55,000-square-
foot Venice YMCA. The cost is from $75 to $750. For more information, contact Julia
Steele, YMCA director of development at 207-9622, or jsteele@veniceymca.org.


Ozark said they are trying
to discuss a consent order
with the DEP, but said the
company cannot afford to do
the clean-up ifit's not allowed
to operate and make money
to pay for the clean-up.
"The city was a customer
here," he said. "They brought
the debris from Charley here,
and they brought 140 truck-
loads here when they cleared
the land for City Hall."
Commissioner Vanessa
Carusone questioned who is
the. owner of the land. Ozark
replied that Deans is the
owner and operator of the
business, Venice Land Clear-
ing, but he does not own the


land.
City takes measures
Commissioner Barbara
Gross said that whenever the
penalties against the compa-
ny got high enough to trigger
a lien against the property, it
would pay the fine and get rid
of the lien.
"This business is way
beyond what we should have
here in the estates," said
Gross. "I'm afraid they're not
going to conform (to the
code) any time soon, so we
need to bite the bullet and do
something about it."

Gross proposed a motion
by which the city could
enforce the zoning laws
against Venice Land Clearing
by filing a lawsuit to foreclose
on any lien imposed for
unpaid penalties.
She also proposed that the
lawsuit ask for an injunction
to return.the mulch pit back
to its original operation, and
to recover damages the' city
incurred.
The motion passed unani-
mously.

signed the agreement. The
lone holdout was a person
who had only been there for
a couple of months.
"There were some good
folks that were impacted by
the decision. Did we try to
soften the blow? Yes. That's
why we offered a nine-week
severance."
W hat about the little guy?
Revelation of this at the
closed city council meeting
March 8, 2005, worried coun-
cil member John Simmonds.
Venice was deciding if it
would plead guilty to the
EPA's charges in order to
avoid going to court.
As reported in the Gondo-
lier Sun's Feb. 17 edition, the
city's attorneys agreed there
was little evidence. in the
city's defense.
Simmonds wanted to
know about "the little guy
that makes 30,000 bucks a
year" who was "told to
something and he does it" to
keep his job, and now he
can't afford a "$300-an-hour
attorney."


ASK from Page 1 A
such a structure would en-
hance the approach to
Nokomis beach.
But that hope may be only
a dream.
Courity officials have said
that other intersections with
the highway have higher pri-
orities. County Administrator
Jim Ley recently estimated
that the cost to construct an
overpass at 41 and Albee
Road would be $4 million-
$6 million. The only overpass
on U.S. 41 today is at New
College, on the Sarasota-
Manatee county line.
Working closely with the
Nokomis Center Advisory,
Revitalization Committee,
Ask was instrumental in
persuading developer Henry
Rodriguez to purchase 220
acres of land along State
Road 681 to build an urbanist
village. It will be five times the
size' of the $225 million
residen-tial and shopping
complex in Osprey that
Rodriguez has started to
build.
The S.R. 681 project will
be the northern anchor of
Nokomis' commercial corri-
dor on 41.

Venice's attorneys told
Simmonds "that type of indi-

by the U.S. Attorney's Office.
The city manager was a
bit more direct in his answer.
"If he violated the law,
we shouldn't be defending
him," Black said.

SBack then, voters were facing

backs that served as a catalyst
for support in 2002. The pain
V1 is no longer there.
In addition to soliciting

ment and civic organizations,
Superintendent Gary Norris
, has been stumping before
area civic organizations.
School officials say he's been
warmly welcomed at most

public vote on an ad valorem
tax in the amount of 1-mill

ASK


affordable housing in Noko-
mis and his real job when-
ever he has the time to do it
- as a successful realtor
teamed with, his wife, Deb-
bie, and one wonders how
he can accomplish so much
for the community.
It's amid complications,
according to friends. They
report that for several weeks
last Fall, the Asks were forced
to live out of suitcases with


friends while awaiting the
completion of their Calusa
Lakes home.
He's been in that home
since Thahksgiving day, long
enough to become active in
the homeowners association.
Ask "is a modest guy," said
one friend of the couple.
"He works hard to get things
done, but he prefers to stay
in the background. We're for-
tunate to have him here."


Court ruling could influence



art in public places programs


BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A legal battle being waged
thousands of miles from
Southwest Florida over what
qualifies as appropriate public
arts displays could influence
the future of many community
programs including Sara-
sota County's if an appellate
court decision stands.
Seattle was one of the first
jurisdictions to set aside 1
percent of its capital im-
provements projects budget
for public art in 1973. It estab-
lished a model that Sarasota
County, the city of Sarasota
and many others have used to
fashion similar programs.
A group challenged the
Seattle program and charged
that a municipal utility com-
pany City Light expend-
ed revenue collected from
utility customers for art pro-
jects that had nothing to do
with the city's mission of
providing electrical power.
In December, a state ap-
peals court upheld portions of
a 2004 lower court decision
that determined the utility
had paid almost $1 million
for "impermissible" art pro-
jects between the years 2000,
and 2003, and the city would
have to make restitution to
the utility.
Most of the attention
focused on a contemporary
sculpture entitled "Wave Rave
Cave" the city placed under a
highway bridge near the
Belltown community. The
lower court determined it
"was not sufficiently close" to
the utility's mission.


While the appellate court
refused the plaintiff's request
to exempt City Light from
Seattle's public arts program, it
drew a line on what is appro-
priate for publicly financed
arts displays that Sarasota and
other communities will- have
to consider in the future.
Serious question
Sarasota County has ex-
pended about $650,000 on
commissions for public art
displays since it adopted an
ordinance in 1993, and works
are on display outside libra-
ries, courthouses, public ad-
ministration centers and
other governments facilities.
Unanswered is: "What
would be an appropriate
sculpture for display outside
an administration building
for the county's water and
sewer utility operation?" If the
Seattle ruling sets a precedent,
then the question is a serious
one for county officials.
"We have always exempt-
ed facilities such as sewage
plants from the public arts
program," said Bruce Begany,
a county public works official
who helps coordinate the pro-
gram. "If it's an administration
building, the money for art
has to stay on the property. It
can't go to the jail."
The county recently
changed its funding formula
for public art purchases so
enough money is generated
for displaying pieces at both
existing public buildings and
new ones. It had previously
been 1 percent of the budget
for new buildings only, as is
the case in Seattle.


Under the current policy,
.85 of 1 percent of the capital
budget for construction pro-
jects is set aside for art, with 75
percent of the money for new
projects and 25 percent for
existing buildings. The maxi-
mum that can be spent at any
one building is $300,000.
In addition to approving
a new funding formula, the
county commission has en-
dorsed the purchase of exist-
ing sculpture and other art
items rather than just new
pieces for display at both


*


new and existing government
facilities.
An appointed volunteer
Committee for Art in Public
Places that oversees the selec-
tion process previously limit-
ed its choices to new pieces.
The tedious process required
a call to thousands of artists
on an approved list and
interviews with finalists.
The commission's new
direction was directly influ-
enced by the Sarasota Season
of Sculpture along the
bayfront.

Home heaters bring fire and

carbon monoxide dangers
An expected cold snap this weekend has prompted Sarasota
County fire officials to warn residents of the dangers of home
heaters. According to the National Fire Protection Agency,
heaters are the leading cause of home fires during December,
January, and February. In Sarasota County, 23 heating-related
fires have occurred in the past three years, exceeding $25,300 in
property damage.
"These fires don't have to happen," said Sarasota County Fire
Chief Brian Gorski. "Most fires with space heaters are prevent-
able if key safety measures are followed."
To avoid problems, Gorski recommends keeping space heaters,
both portable and fixed, at least three feet away from anything
that can burn, including furnishings, bedding, and clothing. Turn
the heater off when leaving the room or going to sleep.
Wood stoves and fireplaces also need special care. When
buying a new unit, have a qualified technician perform the
installation. If the appliance is already installed, have it checked
to make sure the installation was done properly.
Most fires in wood stoves, fireplaces and chimneys occur due
to a lack of regular cleaning, leading to the buildup of creosote,
the residue of unburned fuel.
Heating devices should be inspected and cleaned on a regular
basis according to the manufacturer's instructions. Use only
seasoned hardwood and don't burn trash in a fireplace because
the fire could easily burn out of control. Keep sparks and embers
inside the fireplace with fire screens made of heat-tempered
glass or sturdy metal.
Heating equipment that burns fuel is a potential source of
carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless, poisonous gas that is
created when fuel burns incompletely. To provide early warnings
about accumulating CO in the home, Gorski recommends
installing a CO alarm. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning
are severe headache, dizziness, mental confusion, nausea and
faintness. Many symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are
similar to the flu, food poisoning or other illnesses.

THE WINDS OF CHANGE


have come to Florida.


On the heels of the 2004 and 2005 hurricane
seasons, many weather experts believe
that Florida has entered a new era where
hurricanes are the norm, not the exception.

Of course, no one can control the weather.
So. at Florida Power & Light Company, we
believe that as Florida's. weather changes-
along wth. changes in our'.population. .
energy demands and other dynamics-we
too must change. We must adapt to new
circumstances by finding new ways to
deliver reliable electricity As one example,
for each of the past three years, we have
invested nearly Si.5 billion in new power
generation and delivery systems. We expect
a similar investment level for the next three
years as well.

MAKING OUR SYSTEM "STORM SECURE"
To strengthen our grid against the ravages of
storms, we've developed a plan called "Storm
Secure." It's a comprehensive solution that
addresses a variety of issues, including:

* Rapid completion of post-hurricane
follow-up repairs and facility upgrades
prior to the 2006 hurricane season.
* Adopting new standards for new
construction, and targeted upgrades
to our system so it can withstand higher
wind velocities.
* Encouraging the conversion of more
overhead lines to underground.
* Revising our pole inspection processes.


* Optimizing the use of nuclear power-we
continue our longstanding commitment
to taking full advantage of low-cost
nuclear power.


* Increasing line clearing and vegetation
management, particularly around
critical infrastructure.

Our Storm Secure Plan will help our system
withstand the effects of stronger storms,
with fewer and less disruptive outage during
severe weather. The bottom line: a stronger,
more reliable electric system for you. The details
are available at wwxw.FPL.com/StormSecure.

FIGHTING HIGH FUEL COSTS
Purchasing fuel to operate our generating
units is a major expense, and prices for these
fuels (particularly natural gas and crude oil)
have skyrocketed in recent years. We've taken
major steps to address this issue, including:

*A commitment to fuel diversity-we use
a variety of energy sources including natural
gas, oil, nuclear power, coal and purchased
power. This gives us the option of using less
expensive, fuels (such as coal and nuclear
power) whenever possible.


* Improving fuel efficiency- in recent years,
we have re-powered older, less efficient
generating units and built new, state-of- .. .*
the-art ones. Overall, we have improved
the fuel efficiency of our plants by 12 percent.

We can't control fuel prices on the global
market. However, by controlling our
energy use, we can produce electricity
more cost-efficiently

STAFF REPORT


Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida
Department of Education
Commissioner John L. Winn
announced that Florida
signed a compact with 48
states to establish a common
definition and methodology
for calculating state high
school graduation rates.
The compact, established
by the National Governors
Association, will develop
consistent measures of high
school graduation and build
comprehensive data systems
to gather, examine and re-
port this information.
The compact followed the
release of Graduation Counts:
A Report of the NGA Task
Force on State High School


Graduation Data. The report
outlined recommendations
for states to develop a high-
quality, comparable high
school graduation measure,
as well as complementary
indicators of student progress,
outcomes and data systems
capable of collecting, analyz-
ing and reporting the data.
In this report, Florida was
recognized as a national
model for calculating grad-
uation rates.
The state's graduation rate
follows all students from the
time they enter the ninth
grade through to graduation.
Florida methodology also
accounts for students trans-
ferring in and out of the
state, as well as for students
earning a GED.

REASON FOR POOR WORK PERFORMANCE?
Employers may accuse an injured employee of malingering on the job, but there may be an explanation .for "sick
worker" syndrome that has a biological basis. According to laboratory studies, nerve injuries caused by low-force,
highly repetitive movements result in the production of proteins known as cytokines. These proteins appear in
injured nerves as early as three weeks after the first signs of cell stress. Cytokines are also linked to malaise,
enough so that the inflammatory proteins in the bloodstream may trigger a self-protective effect, in which those
affected begin to back off the repetitive tasks that caused the injury. If so, this may explain why injured employees
seem to be so disinterested in working.
Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts, which is based upon the understanding that good health depends, in
part, upon a normally functioning nervous system. At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER,
our diagnostic capabilities enable us to pinpoint structural problems that are causing nerve interference. Poor
posture, lack of exercise, overexertion, and misuse can build up over time and force vertebrae or a disc out of
place. We're located at 1214-C Venice Ave. East, where we will only accept you as a patient if we sincerely feel we
can help you. We provide safe and gentle chiropractic care for the entire family. Please call 941-412-3800 to
schedule an appointment. We offer massage therapy and have 2 licensed massage therapists on staff.

Regional cooperation key to water resources


he Southwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District is poised to make deci-
sions in the next few months that will
affect how counties approach water supply
issues for decades to come.
SWIFTMUD holds the keys to the engine
when it comes, to development and the
sharing of water. How its board uses that
power will drive where and how we develop
future resources.
The influential control comes in the form
of funding derived from ad valorem taxes
charged residents of each community the
water district encompasses from parts of
Marion and Levy counties south to Punta
Gorda.
The funding is used to help communities
pay for various water projects from wells,
to reservoirs to new water plants and
pipelines. As a general rule, funding has been


granted only to projects of regional impact.
In other' words, money is given to govern-
ments whose project will benefit other
communities in the SWIFTMUD area.
It is important those appointed to posi-
tions on the SWIFTMUD board use that
power wisely if they want to preserve the
integrity of their authority.
That noted, it will be interesting to see
how SWIFTMUD deals with the city of
,Punta Gorda and its possible request for
matching funds to expand its water plant.
City Manager Howard Kunik is preparing
a study for the city council on just how
much the town's plant expansion, to 15 mil-
lion gallons per day, and the building of
reservoirs will cost.
Charlotte County and the Peace River
Manasota Regional Water Authority both
want to interconnect with the city. So far,


city council members have been cautious
about committing to that idea obviously
fearing that once they sign on the dotted
line, they may lose control of their own
water resource.
The sticking point is, the water plant
expansion from 10 to 15 mgd and the price
of reservoirs could cost as much as $75
million. Without SWIFTMUD's matching
funds, those costs will be a difficult sell to
city water customers who, at the very least,
would see a sharp increase in their water
bills.
Punta Gorda is just the first such deci-
sion SWIFTMUD will make that could not
only affect future water sources but greatly
affect the future of the four-county water
authority.
Sarasota County is also looking at pos-
sibly developing its own water resource at


Cow Pen Slough. Although Sarasota com-
missioners say decisions 'on tapping that
source, or whether to bring the authority on
board, are months or years away, the situa-
tion is similar to Punta Gorda's.
Developing water resources especially
new plants is very. expensive. Most
cities and counties would have difficulty
doing so without the financial benefits of
SWIFTMUD funding.
That is why decisions by the water district
will drive how local governments develop.
water resources.
We believe it is important for communi-
ties to work together. That is the premise
behind the origin of SWIFTMUD and the
water authority. Sharing resources and co-
operating to keep rates low are goals all
members of the authority and SWIFTMUD
should work toward.


Something



smells


BOB VEDDER
C.0LU !r Ig- '
COLM SNI1ST

When governmental or
quasi-governmental entities
,-embark on large projects that
wll affect a public con-
stituency, there is usually a
thorough process to ensure
the project is thought out and
the dollars are spent wisely.
It appears this did not
happen with the Venice
Housing Authority redevel-
opment project.
Normally there would be a
couple of public meetings -
and in this case also a couple
of tenant meetings to help
discover needs and desires.
That didn't happen.
Embarrassingly, there was
a workshop a few weeks ago,
long after the contract, was
let, just so they could apply
for some Sarasota County
grant money. That was very
phony.
Usually after public input,
as happened with the airport
development, a request for
proposal can be put out to
elicit bids. Sometimes con-
sultants shape the proposal
into a bid spec.
After that there can even
be more public meetings to
see if anything has been
overlooked. That happened
with the Venice Community
Center, and the public had
some real problems with the
proposal.
That is somewhat how the
city handled proposals for
the development of the air-
port..The RFPs brought some
great ideas from a variety of
developers. It showed the
council and city manager
that none of those was likely
to work for a developer as
they all included housing at
the airport, which made no
sense. But what it did do
was give the city some good
ideas on how to proceed
with the property, which will
happen.
Unfortunately for this
project, VHA did not put out
an RFP and the bids also
were not advertised or widely
distributed, only going to
several developers. It is a
travesty not to .get as many
good companies involved as
possible.
That certainly is reflected
by the fact that Brad Baker, a
Venice resident and support-
er who has a fair amount
of experience in affordable


housing, was not invited to
bid even though they knew
he wanted to. Brad has built
projects in Kansas as well
as Florida. He worked in
Washington D.C., where he
learned a lot about how to
get federal funding.
He was in charge of the
Florida Housing Department
in .Tallahassee, which funds
these projects, so he knows
his way' around. It was Brad
who proposed on a couple of
occasions that the county or
city should do more afford-
able housing, and he cham-
pioried to see ift' aplpe B.hd
wanted the ability to give
more back to the community
as he has done in the past.
But Brad was never asked
to bid on this project. The.
principal reason given was
that Brad was just out for
Brad. Of course Brad would
make some money on this
project or any other, for
that matter so I guess he
would be out for himself,
but certainly not to the tune
of 42 percent of the cost of
the project like the developer
that was selected. It shows
tremendous lack of judg-
ment to select this plan.
The housing group also
has pointed out Brad was
forced out of the state job.
They obviously do not know
why that happened, because
if they did they might want
him even more to do this
job.
In any case, what harm
would it do to ask a lot of
people including Brad, to bid
or respond to an RFP? If he
is the terrible person he is
portrayed to be, that would
be exposed. He had a lot
more face to save than
someone from Altamonte
Springs.
It is very sad to think we
are going to build all-wood
structures. Those units will
deteriorate'a whole lot faster
than the ones there now.
Obviously, that is how you
can build 72 units for just
more than $6 million, which
admittedly seems very rea-
sonable if it weren't that
they will not be substantial
enough.
Remember, however, the
total cost is more than $11
million. About $5 million
goes to the developer, speak-
ing of greed. We should be
spending a lot less on the
developer and more on the
structure.
Also, the increase in units
of affordable housing is not
much. Yes, we are going
from 50 to 72, but some
have been proposed not to
be for affordable housing.
Current residents have to
reapply, probably to ensure

What can you do in a mere two hours?


Editor:
One of the most egregious examples of thickheadedness
on the part of our Venice "governors du jour" is their two-
hour parking limit in all of the parking spaces in the Venice
downtown area, including the city parking lots.
Even at St. Armands, a shopping mecca that puts down-
town Venice to shame, the limit is three hours.
Consider: A shopper parks his or her car in downtown
Venice. The plan is to have a leisurely lunch at one of our
fine restaurants (one hour), and then take in a few of the
shops. Someone seriously intent on taking in the won-
derful sights of our fine village now has one hour left not
much time for much of anything else.
One remedy is, at the very least, to extend the parking
lot hours to three or even four hours. This would give a little
more time for our customers to spend a little more of their


money in our town.


WMD may have
gone to Syria
Editor:
Two shockers:
1. From 1999 to 2001 the
lieutenant colonel in charge
of 'Able-Danger," a top-
secret global counter terror-
ism effort, was handed the
task of hunting down al-
Qaida terrorist cells around
the world. Instead, they
found them right here in
America. In January 2000,
they identified terrorists with
links to Brooklyn, N.Y, one
of whom was Mohammed
Atta.
"My team and I tried to
give the photo of Atta and
the information about him
to Clinton's Department of
Justice in the summer of
2000. We knew he was linked
to al-Qaida. We knew he fit
the profile of the terrorists
who had bombed the World
Trade Center in 1993, and
we knew he had to be investi-
gated. But Clinton's lawyers
told me I could not give
my information to the FBI."
The FBI never knew he
existed.
Members of the Sept. 11


Richard Wall
Venice

Commission spoke to the
lieutenant colonel in Af-
ghanistan, saying they would
follow up with him when he
returned to the states. They
never did. Clinton's cronies
removed his boxes of docu-
ments, stripped him of his
security clearance and sus-
pended him from duty.
Thanks to a congressman
who had seen all the ma-
terial, and the Patrick Henry
Center, he is now in the
process of defending his
good name. But it will cost
him $50,000 to $100,000 to
do it! And 3,000 lives need-
lessly lost.
2. Brit Hume of Fox News
reported several weeks ago
that an Iraqi colonel had
written a book, "Saddam's
Secrets," in which he said
that all WMD materials had
been sent to Syria six weeks
prior to the war. Our planes
saw a caravan headed for
Syria at about that time. Mr.
Hume stated that, in his
opinion, the WMD were in
Damascus.
Wish someone could
prove it!

Mobile home residents
need to be realistic
Editor:
I've been reading, with
interest, the articles and let-
ters about Shady Haven and
other on-the-water mobile
home parks being sold. I
owned a large park in Largo,
and now own a small park
in Englewood. Please note a
few facts:
Our park has nice manu-
factured homes for sale from
$6,000 to $15,400. The lot
rent is $245 per month,
including water, sewer, lawn
maintenance and garbage
pickup. It's a small, but
sweet, 55-plus park.
Anyone saying they have
no place to go simply isn't
looking. Many of these peo-
'ple bought their double-
wides years ago for $12,000
to $20,000. They had the use
of those homes for far longer
than one would use a car, for
example, for the same price.
There are homes they can
afford, but they will be
smaller or they might have
to move inland..
The owners of Shady
Haven are wonderful people
who worked hard, long
hours and sacrificed to
make that park a really spe-
cial place to live. But it does-
n't matter. Now it is prime
waterfront property and no
one should begrudge them
for doing what most people
would do.
Just remember that there
are thousands of parks in
Florida and there is no rea-
son for residents to panic.
Only those waterfront prop-
erties are getting 'the huge
offers.
I feel sorry for those who
recently bought their homes
in these waterfront commu-
nities for outrageous sums
and won't get their use out of


them. That just isn't right to
me.
The point to remember
is that there are homes for

There's another
way to save trees
Editor:
I also believe, just as
People for Trees does, that
developers should stop clear
cutting the trees.
The only difference is that
I know there are only two
Ways to do that: stop build-
ing homes in Sarasota and
Charlotte counties and else-
where in Florida (unaccept-
able), or provide a sewer
system so that lots do not
have to be built up 3-4 feet
above the road, which kills
the existing trees.
Builders, of which I'm one,
do not love to pay the cost of
removing trees or for the fill
dirt required to fill the well
and septic lots. These costs
are passed on to you, the
customer.
Builders would much
rather have city water and
sewer in order to save the
tree canopy, but here is a
word of caution. Too many
trees remaining on a devel-
oped lot can lead to a danger-
ous fire situation or lead to
heavy damage if the wind
should blow hard enough to
topple trees.
This is not speculation or
guesswork. We have all seen
those results. Drainage is
also a major concern.
Your city and county lead-
ers understand these princi-
ples (contrary to what some
people think) and are very
concerned about this situa-

they still fit the financial and
, other standards set out for
: such housing.
I really think this was a ter-
ribly failed process that
should be done over. One
could only hope that they
wouldn't get the funding
they've applied for and would
be required to go about it
right.

like to try cross-country

The Venetian Waterway
Park's new trailhead, the old
chamber building, is done
and in use but just not ready
for trail users. They have to
wait until the third tower is
completed by Waterford so
the walk can be connected
to the completed portion.
They are holding meetings
in the new facility.

I enjoyed talking to
Brookie Brown, one of our
former editors, who is mov-
ing back to this area. I also
heard from John Edmond-
son, who was editor in the
early '90s and now owns and
runs a paper in Marshville,
N.C. They are both great
hometown editors.

The weight loss is very slow


but steady. A couple more
pounds down and 15 to 20 to
go.
Now that the Y has a TV at
every aerobic station, more
than 50 of them, it makes it
easier to work out. Nothing
like having a remote at your
own workout station, makes
a man feel so at home.
This upcoming week I'm
out of town a lot; that will
test the plan.

The South County Family
YMCA dinner dance and
auction was a huge success,
with more than 500 people
enjoying the neat ambiance,
delicious food and the antics
of the guest auctioneers.
Kudos to Christina Pfahler
and Michelle Hazeltine, who
chaired this event that ben-
efits the YMCA, which is
now in the construction
mode needing all the help it
can get.
It was unfortunate. Mi-
chelle was unable to be
there to accept the accolades
given her.

Someone this week said it
was unfortunate that the
public can't access school
playgrounds. We pay for
them, just can't use them.
It was neat years ago
when the PTA members at


Venice Elementary raised the
money locally for a great
playground and then allowed
all to use it. Why can't we
open these playgrounds with
appropriate disclaimer signs?

Got some newspapers
some time ago from part-
time Venice residents Pat
and Al Almeida. Al was gen-
eral manager of the New
London Day in Rhode
Island. They brought in
many papers.
The Providence Journal
had a fun story about which
baby names were most pop-
ular in 2005 in Rhode Island
and compared them to the
country at large.
Michael was the most
popular boys name, as it has
been pretty often for 40
years, according to the study.
Girls names have changed a
lot. Olivia was the most
popular in Rhode Island
while in the United States,
Emily was the most popular.
Abigail, Madison, Samantha
and Hannah were all in the
Top 10. The name Bob hasn't
been most popular since
1945.
The paper also had a nice
section called Day Break on
things to do.

Give VHA residents some carts


Cart donations. This is in resporise to the person in Grove
Terrace needing use of a shopping cart. What a wonderful,
terrific project this could be for service organizations in our
town. Just how much does a cart cost? Many who are blessed
financially could also donate to this need. I also think Publix,
Albertson's and Sweetbay might donate a cart or two. Grove
Terrace residents must take responsibility for returning the
carts to the designated storage area so that others in their
complex could use them.


Signals needed. I'm calling
to request that DOT put up
turn signals on the traffic light
going into the Venice shop-
ping center by the hospital.
And now that they're doing
road construction on 41 in
Nokomis, and we cannot
make any turns other than
into Colonia Lane, we need a
turn signal there also before
someone gets killed. Would
appreciate some considera-
tion from DOT.
Bus rules. Your Feb. 1 arti-
cle concerning the traffic
problems at Venice Elemen-
tary School failed to mention
the most important con-
tributing factor, which is the
school-busing rules. Chil-
dren, even kindergarteners,
have to walk to school if they
live within a mile. Others have
to walk if they live within 2
miles. They don't get a bus,
so the parents have to drop


them off in today's world
where you can't trust a child
in the traffic or with the
predators that are around.
This occurs at, all of the
schools in the district. Why
can't they be bused?
Rude caller. I don't know
if anyone else got a call on
Saturday, Feb. 4, around 11:15
from a person looking for
donations. When I told him I
can't donate because .my
husband and I have both
been sick, he said if I can't


donate $20, maybe I could
donate something less. I told
him not right now. He said,
well maybe later. I told him
to put me on the no-call list.
He said I heard that before
and slammed the phone
down. I would like to know
which organization this was.
He said when he first called,
but I couldn't understand
him.
Pulling their weight? I read
a lot about the people calling
about the referendum and
voting for it. I'm just won-
dering if they have children
in the schools, unlike us old
timers here who haven't. And
are they paying the taxes
themselves? Or are we just
supporting their children
while they do nothing and
they don't even help them at
home.

I am glad he has found that
development is revenue
neutral and real estate devel-

Rankin suggests that a politi-
cian who rails against Bab-

has a hidden agenda.
I would like to know those
politicians, because I'd like
to vote for them! A politician
who serves the people's
agenda, who only serves on
a citizen's tax-paid salary,
cannot have a hidden agen-


da in serving. There is no
hidden gain or money
there.

and fire. Why do we have

Too much government? Too

Venice's Evaluation and
Appraisal Report states:
"Public spaces and parks
slowly disappear ... Public
infrastructure: Make sure
city policies have, new de-
velopment pay for expansion
of public facilities and infra-
structure."
Why do they plan that?
Who has the hidden agenda
and who profits really from
growth? Today. Now. Who
pays for growth?

The lowdown on abuser and abused


BYALYSSA SCHNUGG
STAFF WRITER


Domestic abusers come in
all shapes and sizes, but they
have several traits in com-
mon.
That is equally true of
female abusers, who are mak-
ing up a greater percentage of
abuse cases each year.
Here are some of the signs
of an abusive female:
Does she barter with sex
in exchange for personal
items she wants?
Was there violence in her
family?
Does she have mood
swings, i.e.: one moment she
is loving and affectionate, and
the next moment angry and
threatening?
Has she humiliated you
in front of others?
Does she anger easily
when drinking or on drugs?
During conflict does she
often threaten or ignore you,
destroy personal property or
sentimental items, slam
doors or leave?
Has she threatened to
hurt you or the children?


Has she ever used physi-
cal violence (screaming, slap-
ping, punching, hitting, kick-
ing, grabbing, shoving, shak-
ing, choking, biting or other-
wise abusing you, the chil-
dren or any past partners?
Has she used or threat-
ened to use a weapon against
you?
Is she a very jealous per-
son?
Does she regularly accuse
you of being unfaithful?
Does she "track" all of
your time?
Does she try to control
how you think, dress, who
you see, how you spend your
time, how you spend your
money?
Does she try to discour-
age you from seeing your
family or friends?
Does she get angry or
resentful when you are suc-
cessful in a job or hobby?
Does she prevent you
from working or attending
school?
Does her conversations
ever escalate into threats of
separation or divorce?
Does she ever threaten to


hurt you, herself or others, if
you talk about leaving her?
Does she criticize you for
little things?
Does she do or say things
that are designed to make you
feel "incompetent," "crazy" or
"stupid?"
Does she blame alcohol,
.drugs, stress, the children,
others, you or other life
events for bad behavior?
Does she feel guilty after
aggressive behavior and
strive for your forgiveness?
Does she say she could
never live without you, yet
other times wants you out?
Does she use sex or other
favors as a way to "make up"
after conflict?
Does she control all the
finances and force you to
account in detail for what you
spend?
Are you sometimes afraid
of her?
If you answered "yes" to
any of these questions, you
are in a potentially abusive
relationship and should talk
with police, social services
(especially if children are get-
ting abused), a therapist,


minister or a friend.
Male victims:
come from all walks of
life, social backgrounds and
cultures.
suffer society's stigma for
not protecting themselves.
become depressed in
their isolation, feel suicidal
and sometimes take their
own lives without disclosure.
are victimized because
they fail to conform to the
"macho man" stereotype.
are perceived as wimps.
are disbelieved because
they are men.
are refused the status of
victim.
are caring, sensitive men,
good fathers and providers.
They want help for the
abuser, not further abuse
from society and the caring
agencies.
are removed from or
asked to leave their homes
because it is the easy option.
have no support systems
in place. They have no "listen-
ing ear."

Another golden season for Cook


Jeremie Cook takes
second state wrestling
title, teammate Brett
Nelson places third
at FHSAA Finals.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Jeremie Cook discovered
something important Satur-
day night at The Lakeland
Center: It feels great to win a
state wrestling title even if
you feel like crap.
Saddled with a stomach
bug, Cook still had enough
energy to post a 7-1 decision
over Dustin Zitzman of Dixie
Hollins in the FHSAA Class
2A 189-pound final,
Cook became the first
Venice High wrestler to win
back-to-back state titles. He
was a perfect 45-0 as a junior
and 52-0 this season.
"I woke up and I felt sick
all day," Cook said. "It went
away right before my match.


Jeremie Cook

I guess it was the adrenaline.
Two state titles it's a won-
derful feeling."
"Nice and easy, nothing
crazy," Indian coach Dan
Kelly said of the pre-match
strategy.
A week earlier, Cook
defeated Zitzman (26-4) in
the region finals.
Cook, who was 4-0 in the
tourney, was one of three


VHS wrestlers in Lakeland.
Brett Nelson settled for
third place at 160 pounds
after wiping up Eccledus
Brown of Gainesville in
the consolation final,
16-6.
Nelson finishes his senior
season with a record of 50-2.
"Overall, it's not what I
wanted, but that's how it
came out," said Nelson, who
is looking to continue wrest-
ling in college.
In his third-place bout,
Nelson had eight takedowns
to dominate. The strategy
worked time and again -
lock up, drag him down and
spin around.
"He was a strong, physical
kid," Nelson said of Brown,
who finished with a record
of 50-7.
On Friday, Nelson won
his quarterfinal 18-8 over'
Derrick McCoy of Tampa-,
Freedom, but that night he
dropped a gut-wrenching
1-0 decision to Seth Mertz of
Springstead.
The only point was when

Brett Nelson

Nelson let Mertz get out to
start the third period. Nelson
failed to escape in the second
period.
"I came close to a take-1
down a couple' of times,"
Nelson said. "He didn't do
much. He was tough to score
on."
Nelson dropped to wrest-
lebacks Saturday morning
against a familiar foe -


Manatee's Brendan Flana-
gan. Nelson won for the
fourth time against him, by a
5-4 score, to advance to the
third-place match.
"It was like our other
matches," Nelson said. "He
took fifth, so he did pretty
good."
Mertz lost in the finals to
Tom Timothy of Brandon,
7-2.
Heavyweight Anthony Sa-
puto won his opening bout
Thursday but lost two on
Friday to finish out of the
spotlight.
The gentle giant got
pinned at 4:06 of his,
quarterfinal by -Richard
White of New Smyrna
Beach. He was trailing by
two when he saw. the
lights. Then in wrestlebacks,
Saputo dropped an 8-7 deci-
sion to Okeechobee's Chris
Curtis.
Saputo, who finished
45-7, just didn't have a good
tournament. He had de-feat-
ed two state players earlier
in the season.


Cool-hand Lucas deals North Port a loss


Indians win home opener against Bobcats as
Lucas excels on mound, at plate.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

This was more like it.
After struggling at River-
view in its season opener
Thursday, the Venice High
varsitv baseball team played a
more representative brand of
Indian baseball in its home
lid-lifter Friday night.,
The end result was a 4-1
victory over North Port in a
Class 5A District 12 contest.
Junior Jordan Lucas was a
huge factor with his arm and
at the plate.
The right-hander came out
throwing smoke, registering
five strikeouts over the first
two innings. He ended up
fanning nine over six inn-
ings' work. He allowed five
hits and one unearned run.
With the aluminum, Lucas
helped his own cause with a
two-run double in the bot-
tom of the third inning, put-
ting Venice up 3-1 at the time.
Indian head coach Craig
Faulkner is looking for big
things from Lucas.
"Lucas was real tough,"
coach said. "He was on an 80-
pitch count. He only threw 75.
He'll get better and be able to
fine-tune all of his pitches as
the season goes on."
North Port finished with
seven hits, three by C.J.
Stallings, and had the bases
loaded with no outs in the
seventh, but cool-handed rel-
iever Marty Kenealy struck
out the side to end the game.
"This was Marty's first out-
ing," Faulkner said. "He didn't
get to pitch in the preseason
games. He might have been a
little nervous. Marty's gonna
be a key pitcher for us this
season."


Venice, which had eight
hits on the night, scored first
in the bottom of the second
inning. 'Mike Atamanchuk
singled and made it to second
on a wild pitch. Brett Holte
struck out, but the ball got by
the North Pon catcher. Holte
reachedd firSt arid pinch'-run-
ner Donnie Albert went to
third. Albert was out at the
plate trying to score on a
passed ball. Pete Hernandez
kept things alive with a single.
A wild pick-off attempt at first
allowed Holte to score.
Aided by a dropped fly ball,
North Port was able to tie it in
the top of the third. It could
have been worse, but right
fielder Joe Salomone pegged
out the go-ahead runner with
a bullet to catcher Holte.
The Indians tallied three
times in the bottom of the
third, mixing hits with wild-
ness by North Port starter and
loser Jessie Babcock.
Salomone started it off
with a single up the middle.
Trevor Pelletier walked. Both
moved up on a wild pitch.'
Lucas then stepped up and
delivered a screaming double
down the third base line to
plate both runners.
Danny Martini came on as
a courtesy runner. He made it
to third on a wild pitch and
then just beat Babcock's tag at
the plate after yet another
wild pitch.
Stallings came in and
pitched well in relief of
Babcock. He shut out the
Indians over 3 2/3 innings
work.
North Port threatened in
the seventh with Kenealy on
the hill. Stallings and Stans-
bury singled and a walk
loaded the sacks. Kenealy

responded with three Ks to
end it.
North Port coach Rob
Rowe was disappointed with
his team's performance.
"Give credit to them (the
Indians) for getting it done,"
" 4" Rowe said. "It just seems like
we didn't come to play, and in
this district, you have to do
-.. that every game. We lacked a
mental focus. We didn't come
AUDE LEWIS out and play baseball the way
the we are capable. We were
I pitcher. tight."


Zach Maxfield added two
hits for the Bobcats.
The loss dropped the
Bobcats, who play host to
Bradenton- Southeast
Tuesday afternoon in district
action, to 1-1 overall and in
Class 5A-District 12.
Venice (1-1, 1-0) will play
three straight on the road. It
starts Tuesday at Port Char-
lotte.
"The district is going to be
tough," Faulkner said. "Char-
lotte is real good. I think


they're the favorites. Lake-
wood Ranch and North Port
have good teams and Bay-
shore is improved."

WingsOvrVne still flying today


BY SUSAN ERWIN
STAFF WRITER

A plethora of airplanes has
been filling the air in Venice
this weekend at the 6th annual
Wings Over Venice three-day
event.
Jack Butler, contest direct-
or of the event, is a board
member of the Radio Control


Fliers of Venice Inc. The
group consists of pilots who
get together occasionally
and fly their radio-controlled
model planes.
Butler has been involved
with the group for five years
and believes the event will
take place on "one of the fin-
.est fields in Florida."
"It's a beautiful area on

leased bird-sanctuary land,
probably the best in South-
west Florida," Butler said.
Last year, about 75 pilots
from as far north as Atlanta
and as far east as Miami
participated in the event,
and there were an estimated
1,200 spectators.
Butler, a resident of River-
walk, said his favorite perk
of belonging to the group is
sharing the passion of flying
with others.
"I really enjoy working
and being involved with the
people of this group. I've
been flying planes for 35
years and there's nothing I
enjoy more than being
around them."
The passion for planes
appears to run in the family.
Butler's son, Jim, is presi-
dent of Carl Goldberg Model
Planes in Oakwood, Ga. Carl
Goldberg Models is this year's
major sponsor for the event.

Hoping for wings
Butler's wife, Martha,
doesn't fly but says she sup-
ports her husband's passion
at every event he attends.
"He enjoys them (the
. planes) so much. There's an
old neighborhood joke we
have going with some
friends," she said. "I always
say that when I die I hope I
grow wings so that I will sure-
ly be mounted someplace."
Although the emphasis of
the event is mainly be flying,
Butler said, "Vendors will be
on site selling T-shirts and
other souvenir trinkets, and
breakfast and lunch will be


"That's all I do is make airplanes now," said Jack Butler, contest coordinator for the 6th annual
Giant Scale Wings Over Venice. The event,ends today, near the Sarasota County Landfill.


served to everyone by the
club members."
The pilots take a break
from flying at noon, and the
planes are parked on the
field, so spectators can walk
among them and meet the
pilots. /
The event continues on
Laurel Road in Venice near
the landfill from 9 a.m. to
4 p.m. today. Spectators are
welcome to attend. There
will be a $2 donation collect-
ed to cover parking fees.
Finding it should be fairly
simple for those familiar with
die Venice area.


"Just head toward the
landfill on Laurel Road. Once
you make it there, I'll have
plenty of signs leading to the
field," Butler said.
The Radio Control Fliers
ofVenice club has been meet-
ing for more than 25 years.
The group meets on the sec-


ond Wednesday of every
month at the old Venice
library on the island. There is
a $55 annual club fee for
those who wish to join.

Decorate creatively without going broke


By GAIL BORELLI
KNIGHT RIDDER NEWSPAPERS
A young couple in Minneso-
ta used more creativity than
cash in decorating their new
home, which is spotlighted in
the February issue of Midwest
Living.
Early in their home design
process, the couple bought a
4-by-5-foot, purple and
orange print of a tuxedoed
Bugs Bunny playing the piano.
The print set the tone for the
finished house, which is full of
whimsical touches. Among the
homeowners' good ideas:
They painted a small
canvas with leftover wall paint
and decorated it with their
baby's footprints.
The baby's room is covered.
in a neutral wall-to-wall
carpeting, which is comfort-
able for kids to crawl and play
on. To add interest, several
round bath rugs in vivid hues
such as orange, pink, red and
yellow are scattered on the


floor. The polka-dot effect is
echoed on the slipcovers of
the child-height chairs, which
are regular chairs with sawed-
off legs.
The circle theme continues
elsewhere in the house.
Inexpensive bamboo plates
march across the mantel in
the living room, and a black


lampshade is covered with
large spots. The couple bought
area rugs with a crazy rainbow
circle pattern that they have
used in several rooms, includ-
ing the living ro pm, kitchen
and bathroom.

Waddell moves from one






chapter to another


SUN PHOTO BY KIM COOL
A questioning silence has descended in the office of library manager Venice Public Library. The chair so recently occupied by the much loved and respected Mary Waddell sits empty, waiting for
a replacement to be named.


Head Librarian Mary
Waddell retires from.
Venice Public Library.

BY JOEL FOSTER
STAFF WRITER


If Venice Public Library's
Manager Mary Waddell's life
were a book, it will need an
extra large dust jacket for the
positive comments.
"She. is a very endearing
person with an amazing
amount of patience with any-
one and everybody," Roland.
Marcotte said recently, as he
reflected on Waddell's rapidly
;approaching Feb. 24th retire-
ment./
SWired by Waddell in 1999
'. aryd now Publiz Services
SLibrary and Circulation su-


pervisor, Marcotte has mar-
veled at her even-keeled ap-
proach to life ever since.
"I've never seen her get
angry or heard her yell," he
said. "Frustrated maybe, but
never angry. She has time for
everyone." ,
Marcotte refers to a typical
occurrence as an illustration.
"Patrons will sometimes
get angry, perhaps about a
book fine or something small,
but important to them," he
said. "They go to Waddell.
She's got a totally open door
policy. She's available for staff
and patrons, always. Patrons
usually leave very satisfied.
and happy because their con-
cerns ,were listened to and
addressed."
Reference desk staff mem-
ber Nancy Meyers-Brown
concurs.


"She really supports the
staff and worries about what
happens in our lives, She truly
cares about us as people. She
is very kind to everyone work-
ing here, very trusting. She
has an open door and always
wants to help the patrons of
the library as well as the,
employees."
Diane McCauley, hired
with Marcotte in '99, started
part-time at the library. She is
now in the management end
of the circulation depart-
ment.
"I never saw myself as,
management, but she saw
something in me that I didn't
know was there" McCauley
said.
Perhaps it was Waddell's
uncanny ability to fit the right
person to the right job that
has made the library staff into


the mutually supportive team
that it is.
"Because of her guidance
and her philosophy, we are a
true teamn" McCauley said.
"No one is afraid or unwilling
to help in any department
whenever help is needed."
Whether the assistance
comes from staff, volunteer,
library veteran or novice, the
guiding influence has been
Waddell's ability to gather
them all under her umbrella
of positive interaction to
ensure a service that provides
patrons with. the comfort
level like that of family. .
Probably the one person of
longest tenure for whom
Waddell exemplifies all that is
good about theVenice Library
is Nancy Pike, now director of
Sarasota County Libraries.
Before moving up to her pre-


sent position, Pike occupied
the chair Waddell has occu-
pied as head librarian for the
past five years.
"I worked with Waddell for
10 years," Pike said. "She is a
rare person. She was the first
person I thought of when
considering my replacement
as head librarian; I could
always depend on her doing
the right thing regardless of
the situation, be it an emer-
gency or dealing with the
needs of patrons. She just
instinctively knew what to do,
and always displayed good
common sense. And, Waddell
really listens to people, and
people respond to being with
someone who obviously
cares about whatever prob-
lem they have come to her
with; and, they go away
happy to have had the time to


have their say, and usually
with a solution in hand. That's
so important in dealing with
the public, and Waddell made
everyone, young or old, staff
or patron, feel good about
being in the Venice Library."
First hired as a director for
cultural programs offered by
the Venice Public Library, and
then adding the circulation
department to her responsi-
bilities, Pike was well versed
in the demands of the posi-
tion. When circumstances
brought her to the head
librarian chair, she didn't hes-
itate in selecting her replace-
ment.
Now, after 16 years, ad-
vancing from volunteer to
Head Librarian, Waddell has
decided to bring this chapter

Venice High Alumni News
One of the newest lobby-
ists for Auburn University at
the state capital in Mont-
gomery, Ala., is former Venice
High School star student and
volleyball great Elaine Ellis.
This shouldn't surprise any-
one. Elaine always had a way
with words, a terrific person-
ality and could talk anyone
into anything. Way to go,
Elaine.
Venice High alum Ryan
Clarke is also making a differ-


ence with his work. Ryan is a
special education reading
teacher and baseball coach at
Palmetto High School. Ryan
lights up when talking about
his students and it's easy to
see he is a great teacher.
Three cheers to all the local
educators who inspired
Elaine and Ryan.
Around town
Melody and Mike Trimble
recently enjoyed having
Mike's sister Doris Trimble
visit from Lexington, Ky. She
just happened to be in Venice

Retirement Challenge update


BY DOROTHY RODDY
GUEST WRITER

The Women's Resource
Center of Sarasota County,
(WRCSC), has listened to its
clients and responded. Some
of that response was due to
the fact of having been on
national television on the
"Good Morning, America"
show. Our own Maggie Walk-
er, Challenge instructor of our
flagship program, was the
celebrity of the day when she
was interviewed at our Venice
office in January and the tape
shown during the segment of
the show about how retired
husbands in lapan were
affecting their wives. Our


answer: Retirement Chal-
lenge.
In November 2005, we of-
fered a new kind of Chal-
lenge class in partnership
with Manatee Community
College-Venice campus called
The Retirement Challenge for
Women. This program was
designed for women age 60
and older who have retired.
and are facing issues that are
geared toward older women.
It was well received by the
women attending the pro-
gram and it encouraged the
\VRCSC to do an "encore."
\Ve are pleased to offer this
course again during Mlarch.
The program has been
refined somewhat in the


components offered to reflect
more fully the issues needed.
In the financial management
section, more emphasis will
be on identity theft/scams
toward seniors; in the rela-
tionships area, the way
women interact with their
adult children will be ex-
plored, and.there will be a sec-
tion on testing for interests
and talents for volunteer
opportunities at this stage of
life. This will be a six-dav
program beginning March
7-9 and 14-16, 9 a.m.-I p.m.
The program description is
in the spring 2006 MCC
noncredit course catalog and
the cost is $45.

Why train your puppy?


BY VIRGINIA CLEMANS, DVM
GUEST.WRITER -

You should train your pup-
py because well-trained dogs
are happy dogs. They are wel-
come almost anywhere
because they behave nicely
around people and other
dogs. They stay when told and
come when they are called.
They are fun to take for a walk
or a romp in the park. They
can be taken on trips and
family outings. They are res-
pected members of the family
in every sense of the word.
Untrained dogs, on the
other hand, are unhappy
dogs. They don't have many
privileges. When company
comes, they have to be locked
away because they are too
unruly. When the family sits
down at the dinner table, they
beg for food. If allowed off
leash, they run away and
become lost or hurt. Nobody
wants to walk them on a leash
because they pull and jerk
and get tangled. And they stay
home a lot, because nobody
wants such a nuisance on a
family outing.
Remember that your pup-


py has a life expectancy of 10-
16 years. You can ensure that
these years are going to be
mutually rewarding by train-
ing your dog when she is
young. The intent of training
is to set guidelines for good
behavior. You can accomplish
this by teaching your puppy a
few basic commands. Take
"sit and stay," for example, a
command you can use when
you want your puppy to re-
main quietly in one spot for a
short time. When the doorbell
rings, you can tell your puppy
to "sit and stay" while you an-
swer it, rather than having her
frantically charge the door.
When you're training your
puppy, always use his name
and repeat commands fre-
quently, especially at first,
and give him a food treat
when he does well. As the
puppy improves, repeat the
commands less frequently
and at greater intervals. Even-
tually, food treats can start to
appear less predictably, but at
the outset, the puppy needs
that incentive to help him
maintain his focus.
The keys to successful
puppy training are consisten-


- cy, patience and use of posi-
tive reinforcement. Everyone
in the household must be
consistent and work with the
puppy in the same manner.
Training should be fun for
everyone, including the pup-
py. Children should be moni-
tored to ensure the puppy's
safety and to ensure they
aren't teaching the puppy the
wrong behavior. Always re-
ward your dog for good be-
havior; never punish for bad
behavior.
There are many books on-
teaching your puppy basic
commands using positive
reinforcement; check out the
pet section at your local lib-
rary or bookstore. Remember,
a well-trained dog is a happy
dog, so take the time to train
your puppy.

With our new

High Speed CT Scanner,


we'll see you as no one has

ever seen you before.


Wp y M P-
By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist


Q. My father uses two,
behind-the-ear hearing aids
and needs my help to put
them on in the morning. I
have been coating his ear
molds with a little baby oil to
help them slide into his ears
more easily. Is this O.K.?
A. Baby oil, or any oil-based
lubricant can interact with the
plastic material of the ear mold
and can damage it. Only water-
based products should be used
as ear mold lubricants. These
products are available from
Audiologists and are marketed
under the names Otoease,
Eargene and Audio Wipes. It
is always a good idea to clean
the ear mold or hearing aid
shell with a anti-bacterial wipe
after removing it. Many people
then store, their hearing aids in
dry-aid kits to help prevent
moisture build-up. Better still,
are electronic dry aid devices
which come equipped with a
germicidal light -that kills any
bacteria which may be on the
hearing instruments. To find
out more about the proper care
and maintenance of your
hearing aids, call the
Audiologists at Woodmere

Inc. at 492-4327 today.

Sif, instead of conducting dozens

. .. ,. jqstloopklat you to determine-what's .
wrong. With the introduction of the
revolutionary high-speed, 64 "slice"
CT scanner, the world has taken a step
closer to that dream.

Now available at Venice Regional
Medical Center's HealthPark, this
exciting new technology provides
remarkably clear, real-time dynamic
images of organs like the heart, brain
and lungs. Physicians can actually
evaluate plaque in your arteries, spot
blood clots before they cause strokes,
or observe tumors as they respond to
treatment. The non-invasive scans take
seconds and require no hospital stay.

A Better View
Means Better Care
The arrival of the high-speed scan-
ner in Venice means that you and
your loved ones can access some of
the most cutting-edge technology in
modern medicine, right in your own
backyard. Even more importantly,
health issues can be diagnosed earlier
and more accurately-so if there is a
problem, treatment can begin sooner.
It will change your view of healthcare.
Just as it is changing the standard of
care in our community.

SENIOR SCENE


Client: 'You give us back our hope'


Life: That's the way it is


KEITH BACKHAUS
GUEST COLUMNIST

A few weeks ago one of our
valued volunteers passed
away. He had been ill for some
time and before he died,
moved from being a Friendly
Visitor to a client. His death
started me thinking about not
only the value of the
Friendship At Home/Faith in
Action program but what our
community would lose if it
too passed away.
As a volunteer, Jim brought
to us a special talent working
with very hard of hearing
elders. Without him one par-
ticular client was imprisoned
in her deafness and isolation.
Out staff learned to use the


TTDY system but Jim's visits
and calls brought her friend-
ship and opened the doors of
her "prison." In many ways he
saved her life.
The elders we have served
over the last six years of the
program have told us how
important our Friendly Visit-
ors are and how our ability to
connect them to community
resources allows them to
remain living with freedom
and dignity in their own
homes.
Lena and her husband
were in their mid-90s. She
was the primary caregiver of
their disabled son and the
strength of the family. When
she fell and hurt herself
everything fell apart. After a'
couple trips to the ER with no
diagnosis, the EMTs called.
The family was in crisis.
We made connections to
distant family and in the
meantime we bought and
cooked food, changed the
bed, arranged for transporta-
tion to the doctor, connected
to local resources and helped
with making the bathroom
accessible. Lena and her fam-


ily were able to stay in their
home until family arrived.
Her statement still echoes in
my mind six years later, "You
gave us back our hope."
Then there was Claire and
her sister Ruth, Claire in her
90s and Ruth in her late 80s.
Having given up their car and
having no remaining family,
they were lonely and isolated.
A Friendly Visitor changed all
that. After Dan had visited
regularly for a few weeks
Claire called and said, "You've
given me my life back."
Then there was Peggy. She
said, "Keith, you make me
laugh. I have my joy back."
No longer can I imagine
our community without the
Friendship At Home/Faith in
Action program. Senior
Friendship Centers and the
faith community are building;
a network of support. Yes, we
help with everything from air
conditioners and grab bars to
wheelchairs and yogurt but
the real secret or miracle, if
you will allow me, is the addi-
tion of the Friendly Visitors.

VIRGINIA DEUPREE
GUEST COLUMNIST


Once upon a time I record-
ed what I thought might be a
book. The name of it was,
"You Win a Few, You Lose a
Few, and that's the Way it is."
Do you know the kind of
people I really admire and
look up to? No matter what
their problem is, they always
manage to have a cup half
full. That's not me, but I wish
it were.
When my friend's wife
died, he summed it up by say-
ing, "that's the way it is." That
seemed like a pretty good


summation to me.
There are a lot of things in
life we cannot control. We
may not say it, but we simply
know "that's the way it is."
That, my friends, is the end
of my philosophizing.
Here, we have packages of
ketchup, relish, mustard,
crackers and small cereal
boxes. How in the devil do we
get them open?
Even a person who never
swears could be tempted
when. they try to get into
them. I guess they make them
secure to keep them fresh, but
it sure is difficult. I dunno.
Did you ever get a new roll
of toilet issue and couldn't
find the beginning? I get my
fingers and go round and
round and sometimes you get
a long, thin strip. It is so very
frustrating..
Oh well, so be it.
How about strapping tape
you forgot to turn under?
Finding the beginning is
sometimes impossible. I
guess the manufacturers say


they do these things to help
us, but sometimes I wonder.
When my husband and I
were engaged and living in
Washington, D.C., some of
the apartment houses had
nice tea rooms on the bottom
floor. Sometimes we would
splurge and go there for a nice
supper.
Most of the other patrons
were older couples who
seemed to eat their suppers
barely carrying on any con-
versation. We watched in
amazement. "That will never
happen to us in our mar-
riage," I assured my Joe.
Hmmm. Little did we know.
So we win a few, we lose a
few, and that's just the way it
is.

University, noted for its

Planning for retirement psychologically

Dear Frankie,


A successful retirement
plan is about much more
than just investing and sav-
ing. The psychological transi-
tion from working to not
working can be harder than
many anticipate and can cre-
ate some real stresses in a
marriage, so you're wise to be
planning ahead.
Multiple transitions

to retirement can be very dif-
ficult for some people
because retirement is more
and is than just not working. Think
m very about what work does for

d well tures your time, can be a

f what lation, provides social con-

Not considering the psy-


chological component to
retirement can be a big mis-
take. For some people, a
steady diet of leisure activi-

many others, .the initial

Preplan: Develop a list of
things you enjoy doing.
Focus on things that give you
mental and personal satisfac-

those things in retirement.
Seek advice: Talk to your
friends, colleagues or others
who are already retired. They
have firsthand experience
with the day-to-day reality of
retirement and can give you
their input on what to expect

Help someone learn ASL


STAFF REPORT

Often,-when a deaf person
from another country moves
to the United States, they
don't speak English or ASL,
and can have a difficult. time
getting along in our society
and communicating with
others. The Community Cen-
ter for the Deaf and Hard of
Hearing of Manatee/Sarasota
Inc. serves clients who fit this
category.
To meet this need, the
CCDHH is seeking volunteers
willing to spend time with
deaf foreigners and teach


them how to speak ASL. This
is a nonpaid volunteer posi-
tion, but it is extremely im-
portant and necessary. You
are not required to know their
native language, but an ability
to empathize and start at the
most basic level and work
your way up is essential.
Applicants must be inter-
viewed, screened and approv-
ed. To start the process, con-
tact Sarah Harris at sharris
@ccdhh.org, 758-2539 (Voice
/TTY), or 758-2542 (VP). The
CCDHH has offices at 5107
14th St. W in Bradenton and
at 628 Cypress Ave. in Venice.


MILLER from Page SB
discussions with your spouse
about what you're both ex-
pecting in retirement. For
example, how do you want to
fill your days? How much
time do you expect to spend
together? Do you both want
to travel? Where do you want
to live? A common mistake
many couples make in retire-
ment is spending too much
time together: So, before you
retire develop some of your
own hobbies and activities,
and give your spouse a break.
Counseling: Get help or
support from a career coun-
selor or therapist who spe-
cializes in work transitions.


This is especially important if
you're the professional work-
aholic type who has spent
the last 40 years building
your career. You may need
some help developing other
interests and hobbies outside
of work.
Structure: Whatever you
choose to do in retirement,
create some type of a daily
schedule of how you will
spend your time and build in
some routines that will keep
you socially or professionally
connected.

BACKHAUS from Page SB
These awesome volunteers
give freely of their time, bring-
ing friendship and compas-
,sion.
Most of us have moved to
sunny Florida leaving behind
our network of support. Even
though we work on rebuilding
our support and social capi-
tal, like Claire, living long can
have some disadvantages, "I
have outlived my family, I
have outlived my friends, and
now I have outlived my
money."
Jim, Dan and Connie plus
100 other Friendly Visitors
give of their time to give our
community that network of
support. Through the
Friendship At Home/Faith in
Action program, many faith
groups work together to build
social capital to ensure an
ever-increasing group of indi-
viduals there to help all of us
as we age and continue to live
in our homes.
Come join us.

Keith Backhaus is an elder
advocate with Senior

umn for this page.

Bangkok and Bali in November and December


Part six of a series on Bangkok
and Bali. In Part five, the Cools
lived in a Ballinese villa at Amed on
the Indian Ocean.

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

DepartingAmed, we began
the circuitous route back to
the more populated areas of
Bali.
We had spent four peaceful
nights and five days at Amed,
one of the island's dive and
snorkeling centers.
Amed also is a place where
sea salt is removed from the
sea water by drying in large
open air vats along the beach.
We passed by the drying salt
several times but were never
able to find any for sale. Too
bad too, because in the
United States, iodine-free
Balinese sea salt, favored by
gourmet chefs, sells for $18 a
bottle a small bottle.
Sentai, where we stayed in
Amed, was at full occupancy,
although we were the only
.Americans. All of the seven
bungalows were rented. That
was in sharp contrast to; the
big resort hotels, which were
running at 20-30 percent
occupancy.
Warnings from the U.S.
State Department about trav-
aling in Indonesia were hav-
ing a devastating effect on
Bali, an island located in the
middle of the Indonesian
archipelago. We felt safe every
place we were during our stay
safer than we might feel.in
-many places m the uihited
States. I would not travel there

Rooms on the first floor had direct access to this lagoon pool,
which wrapped two of the buildings at the Sheraton Laguna
Nusa Dua in Bali.


via Jakarta, where there is too
much anti-American senti-
ment. Instead, travel to Bali
via Australia as we did on our
prior visit, Singapore as we
did on our, first visit or
Bangkok, as we did this time.
Bangkok turned out to be so
interesting that we vill proba-


bly use that route again when
next we head to Bali and
we will go back.
And we definitely will
return to the Sheraton Laguna
at Nusa Dua, which was our
home for the last four days in
Bali.
Security was fight at 'ffhe
Sheraton as it had been at the
Ritz-Carlton in Jimbaron on
the other side of the southern
peninsula of Bali.
Settling into our room,
which was on the same level
as the hotel's lobby, we soon
realized that we actually were
on the third level, which gave
us a pleasant view of the gar-
dens that led toward the hotel
pools and beyond that, the
sandy beach of the Indian
Ocean.
From our room's balcony
we could see a waterfall wall
and walkways to the hotel's
small shopping arcade and to
its business center. After five


days of computer withdrawal,
I could finally check my e-
mail and begin the process of
adjusting to the fact that we
would soon be leaving par-
adise to return to our "real
world" on the other side of the
globe. Internet access was Rp
(Rupiah) 175,000 or $17.50 for
eight hours, which could be
used anytime during our stay.
Instead of unpacking right
away, we got into our. swim
suits and headed for the main
swimming pool, stopping first -
for afternoon tea at the
Terrazzo, located on the
ground floor. The Sheraton
Laguna at Nusa Dua has sev-
eral pools. Fortified with tea
and the chef's pastries of the
day, we were ready to do some
swimming. Two lagoon-like
pools framed our building
and the next building so
closely that ground-floor
guests could step off their bal-
conies into the pool.
Another pool, with a sandy
beach at one end, was in the
middle of the courtyard,
which was framed by the
hotel room wing and the pub-
lic room wing containing the


Indian Ocean lobsters are similar to Florida crayfish in that
most of the meat is in the tail. These two weighed in at close
to two pounds each.

plus restaurants. The main
pool, where we wiled away
our remaining afternoons in
Bali, was some distance away,
past the beach pool and just
before the Indian Ocean
'beach, which framed the east
side of the hotel complex. We
also spent some time at the
beach where we met a young
Balinese lady who was selling
hand-made jewelry to sup-
port her family. This was no
easy task for her as there were
so few visitors on the beach or
anywhere else for that matter.
Surrounding the pool were
about 10 structures called
"bales" and pronounced "ba-
lees." Topped with thatched
roofs, the bales featured plat-
forms nearly 3 feet above
ground. Side curtains could
be released in rainy weather
or for privacy. The bale floor-
ing (about 9 feet square) was
covered with a 3-inch-thick
mat and accessorized with
two triangular pillows and a
low table that resembled a
breakfast-in-bed tray. The

back when he was about 4 feet
tall, who discovered how to
combine chewing gum and the
lock on the back door to pro-
vide five-finger discounts for
friends wanting to watch Victor
Mature run around in a loin-
cloth. The Strand, in other
words, is vital part of our past,
if not of our lives today.
We seem to just go rent

stay home and watch the
newer films when we feel like it,

then.
Attendance dropped dra-
matically when home enter-
tainment really hit a lick. But
Mickey fought back He tried
the free popcorn route for a
while. All he charged for was
the butter. Attendance didn't
really pick up, and the popcorn
bill was ... well, appreciable if
not staggering.
Mickey now thinks he has
the answer. He bought a disk
player thingie that works on a
big screen. Then he bought


some old movies and lowered
the price.
The first night he did this
was a triple header, and we all
turned out to see our old
heroes vanquish Nazis, solve
the bank robbery in Cactus
Gulch, and find out who really
killed the big-city mayor. We
paid too much for popcorn,
but who cares?
The Strand lives on, even if
there is more gray hair there
than at a Percheron horse
show. Besides, when was the
last time you saw The Duke
standing 15-feet tall?

SUNDAI, FFB 2ELI- ) C IF r Sn I IN n1 1


Beef and chicken sates are traditional Balinese fare, and served
with dipping sauces such as peanut sauce on the left and two
other spicier sauces to the right.


BALI fiom Page 7B
site of a special prix fixe din-
ner for hotel guests.
We might have spent our
every waking minute there or
near the pool or beach but we
had one problem to resolve
first. We had each arrived in
Bangkok with an extra, and
empty, piece of luggage. By
the time we had departed
Amed, those bags were filled
to overflowing and we had
acquired some items that
would not fit in our existing
luggage, including the two
Balinese stone carvings,
which I had purchased in
Batubulan en route from the
Ritz-Carlton Bali to Amed.
Rather than pay $496 for sur-
face shipping of a cubic meter
container back to the states, it
seemed like a better idea to
purchase two more very large
bags into which we could
pack our little "wheelies" and
the extra items that would not
fit anywhere. To do that we
had to go to Kuta Beach, the
one place we had planned to
avoid, in Bali. That is the busy
tourist area where the first
Bali bombing had occurred.
The concierge called a taxi
for us, and off we went. Kuta is
about 45 minutes away from
Nusa Dua and, while still a
busy place, was ,no where
near as busy as it had been
seven years back, our last
time in Kuta. The lack of busi-
ness is probably why our taxi
driver volunteered to wait
while we shopped at no
charge. He parked near the


center of town and we headed
off for an hour to find the
= biggest bags available.
Spotting Americans who
were obviously looking for
something to buy, everyvendor
had snapped to attention,
inviting us to come into their
stalls and see what wonderful
things they had for sale. Until
we found what we were look-
ing for we did not dare to buy
one other thing no matter
what it was. Finally, cutting
down a side street of stalls we
found a place that seemed to
sell large tote bags, not large
enough but a start. Three stalls
later, we found the perfect
thing, a duffel bag about the
size used by hockey players, big
enough to hold several hockey
sticks and all the padding and
equipment a hockey player
needs. When we said we need-
ed two, the young female ven-
dor said, "wait here," and took
off to bring us one more.
Whether she headed to a ware-
house or to work a deal with
another dealer, we do not
know. But, a few minutes later,
she returned, with two more
large bags so we had a choice of
colors all in wild Balinese
prints.
We paid less that $30 for
the two bags. The result was
that we now had room for a
few more purchases and
enough remaining Rupiahs to
pay for our purchases. I found
a Balinese painting, two fish-
ing boat kites and another
sarong. Heidi bought T-shirts
for friends as well as a hand-
carved Buddha for her desk.
,, ,..,,v ;, .,' %


Lugging our treasures, we
returned to the taxi, where
our driver was patiently wait-
ing to return us to the hotel in
time for lunch and another
afternoon at the pool.
Buying the bags was a good
thing but also a sad thing for
their purchase was a signal
that our week and a half in
Bali was coming to a close.
That night, our second to
last in Bali, we consoled our-
selves with our most expensive
dinner Indian Ocean cray-
fish. The dinner cost more than
one night at the Sentai in
Amed, but it was worth it. The
chef split the live crayfish as we
watched squeamishlyy) and
grilled them less than 20 feet
from our table, which was
along the side of the Ocean
Terrace, which is where we ate
most of our dinners. Like the
Cafe Lagoon where we ate
breakfast each day, the Ocean
Terrace is open on two sides,
offering great views of the hotel
grounds and the Indian Ocean
or pool.
We had already begun our
packing, making sure that the
"wheelies" would indeed fit in
our "hockey" bags.
Little did we know as we
headed off to Dreamland that
night that the gods would be
so tearful the next day and
that we also would, for the
first time in three trips to Bali,
be witnesses at a Balinese
wedding.
In part seven, which will
appear on the front of Our
Town on Wednesday, Feb. 22,
a Balinese/Catholic wedding
is held in the gardens of the

glimpse of Santa Claus on a

Should you use 'whether' or 'if?


JUNE CASAGRANDE
A WORD PLEASE


If you want to know
whether your language skills
are up to snuff, ask yourself:
Are the words "whether" and
"if" both used correctly in the
first part of this sentence? Are
they interchangeable? And
what exactly is the difference
between the two?
If you answered, "I dunno,"
"Duh," or, "I must've missed
that lecture," I have good
news. This alone does not
mean that your language
skills are sub par. On the con-
trary, a lot of language experts
don't know the answer to this
one. It's even conceivable that
certain language columnists
might have to look it up
before venturing to write a
column about it. (Hypothet-
ically speaking.) If, on the
other hand, you answered,
"pickled ginger," "the hypot-
enuse" or "A-Rod," then I'm
afraid it is possible that your
communication-related inse-
curities are well-founded.
For the rest of us, here's
some insight from the most
helpful reference book I could
find.
"It's good editorial prac-
tice," writes Bryan Garner of
"Garner's Modem American
Usage," "to distinguish be-
tween these words." Then he


goes on to do just that.
'Let me know if you'll be
coming' means that I want to
hear from you only if you're
coming. But 'Let me know
whether you'll be coming'
means that I want to hear.
from you about your plans
one way or the other."
In other, less clear words,
"if" is for "conditional ideas"
whereas "whether" is for
alternatives and possibilities.
That's a good distinction -
as good a place as any to draw
the line between these two
words but only if you first
accept Gamer's thesis that it's
good editorial practice to dis-
tinguish between the two.
That's the part I find highly
questionable. The minute you
declare yourself in a position
to narrow down the use of two
words, you're contradicting
other authorities. And you're
also labeling as "wrong" uses
that are both customary and
very defensible.
The dictionary definitions
of these two words make it
clear that there is no such line
in the sand.
Webster's New World Col-
lege Dictionary does mention
that "whether" has to do with
alternatives,, such as, "wheth-
er he drives or (whether he)
flies, he'll be on time." Web-
ster's adds, "Sometimes, the
second is merely implied &r
understood, 'We don't know
whether, he'll improve (or
not).' But that's Webster's
second definition of "wheth-
er," not the first. Webster's first
definition of "whether"
sounds a lot like Gamer's def-
inition of "if.": "if it be the case
or fact that."
What's worse, Webster's
gives three definitions for the
conjunction "if." And defini-


tion No. 3 is "whether."
So clearly, Gamer's draw-
ing a line in the sand between
these two will only muddy the
waters and give grammar bul-
lies ammo to label perfectly
defensible uses as "wrong."
Of course, any native
speaker knows that "whether"
and "if" aren't completely in-
terchangeable. "If you build it,
they will come" doesn't really
mean the same thing if you
replace the "if" with a wheth-
er. Or consider answering,
"Do you want Thai food?"
with, "Sure. If you do." Chang-
ing that "if" to "whether"
wouldn't make any sense at
all.
But you didn't need a lan-
guage scholar to tell you that
anymore than you need them
to tell you that adding "or not"
to "whether" is often redun-
dant.
"Generally use 'whether'
alone not with the words
'or not' tacked on," the "Chi-
cago Manual of Style" says.
"The 'or not' is necessary only
when you mean to convey the
idea of 'regardless of whether.'
'We'll finish on time whether
or not it rains.' Gamer, who
helped write the Chicago
Manual, says pretty much the
exact same thing.
Whether or not experts
continue to try to confuse us,
you can trust your instincts
on these two 'words if and
only if you have a basic grasp
of the difference between
conjunctions and pickled gin-
ger.

PHOTO COURTESY OF VENICE PUBLIC LIBRARY
Doing what she does best, Mary Waddell sees to the needs of a
library patron. To a person, the library staff praised the retiring
manager, describing her as a person truly listens and cares
about them as people first, staff second.


SUN PHOTO BY KIM COOL
Roland Marcotte, Public Services Library and Circulation
Supervisor, hired by Waddell in 1999, has been constantly
amazed by her energy, warmth and patience.


PHOTO COURTESY OF VENICE PUBLIC LIBRARY
Mary's predecessor as Venice Public Library manager and cur-
rent Director of Sarasota Libraries, Nancy Pike (left) gets a
laughing response from the lady of the hour, Mary Waddell, as
she shared some memories of earlier years with a crowd of
well wishers.


WADDELL from Page IB
of her life's story to a close due
to health reasons.
"It's time to read and relax,"
said the mother of two daugh-
ters and grandmother to three
girls. "And I do love to read!
"But I will miss the staff
and many friends," she said,
smiling through a sign of tears
in her marvelously expressive
eyes. 'And I'll miss not being
helpful. There are so many,
many good people here."
She points to the Friends of
the Venice Library, its 1,000-
member enrollment and 15-
member board, as the biggest
reason beyond her staff that
the library has grown to
become a major community
service offering many unique
programs.
"They are well educated
people who know how valu-
able 'a resource this is; and
they are so -supportive of
library projects," she said.
"They do things beyond any-
one's expectations."
Among her accomplish-
ments, she is proudest of the
two new rooms being added
to the library building: a chil-
dren's meeting room and a
computer lab made available
by the Friends of the Library
and a 'series of grants from:
the Community Foindadtioi
of Sarasota; the Plantation
Community Foundation Inc.;
Gulf Coast Community Foun-
dation of Florida; Ehrhart
Family Foundation -and funds
from the Sarasota County
government.
"I started as part-time in
1990," she said. "My husband
Tom and I had taken a year's
leave of absence from work in
New Jersey and gone to Costa
Rica. He was crazy about any-
thing Spanish. We studied the


language; well, he studied,
and I just showed up," she
said with her infectious quiet
laugh. "We spent some time
in Sarasota County before
heading back north. When we
finally got home, he decided
that he'd retire."
A professional librarian in
New Jersey, Waddell was still
enraptured with the worldof
literature, wanting the inter-
action with the interesting
people libraries draw like iron
filings to magnets. She had no.
intention of retiring. ,
"Tom wanted to be on a
beach, not work," she said,
almost unbelievingly even on
this day so many years later. "I
couldn't do that! But we head-
ed south, remembering how
much we had enjoyed this
area when we stopped for a
bit when returning from
Costa Rica ... the library was
just so friendly a place."
To her delight, Tom found
it the same and eventually
came aboard as a volunteer in
the periodical section. Sadly,
her Spanish devotee and
mejor amigo, succumbed to
cancer in 1997.
Her contributions to her
home away from home, the
Venice Public Library, contin-
ued have the loss of her hus-
band, and have been well
docLiim elnted. ''.. ":
In the upcoming week,
many will gather to honor the
woman who has embodied
the spirit of the library since
her arrival.
It is also fitting that part of
what could be a predomi-
nantly sad moment for many
will be lightened by the offi-
cial ribbon cutting, Wednes-
day, for the two new rooms
she points to as the apex of
her accomplishments.
Life and the library will go


on.
Patrons will continue to
'flock to the multi-cultural
programming, school chil-
dren will still search excitedly
through the many videos and
books, and staff members will
greet .and treat each and every


visitor as if an old friend were
returning for a visit.
But there will be some-
thing amiss, something not
quite right, like the echo of a
favorite friend's voice or the
memory of a quiet laugh in
the passing breeze.


At her retirement from this
chapter of her life, Waddell
leaves behind a legacy of
warmth, love and caring.
She would be the first to
say that she leaves it in very,
capable hands; the hands of
those who have worked with


her and looked to her for
guidance for the past 16 years
at the Venice Public Library.
Friday, Feb. 24, will be her
last day as head librarian.
Many chapters remain to
be written in Waddell's life
story.

FRESH AIR


'Happy anniversary!'


LARRY ALLAN
FRESH AIR COLUMNIST


You're probably thinking,
what. anniversary? Well it has
been a full year since we start-
ed the "fresh airings" of Oscar
Scherer State Park and its
inhabitants. All in all it has
been a unique year; we have
ex-powided on fire and the
scrub jays, our wonderful vol-
unteers, the very important
Citizens Support Organi-
zation, "The Friends of Oscar
Scherer Park Inc.", as well as
the challenge of treating and,
controlling exotic species. .
The park and the commu-
nity fared well during the dev-
astating storm season .that
finally passed. We were. very
lucky a few places may not
have gone totally unscathed,
but locally there weren't any
serious issues tifs past year.
Don't forget that people in
other regions still need your
support. We truly have a par-
adise here, in many ways.
Now, we and our commu-
nity are greeting another

related economy. Oscar Sche-

Venice Art Center exhibit shows off Ukrainian arts


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
STAFF WRITER


Ukrainian art is not just
decorative; it tells a story.
Now these special works of
art will be on exhibit for
three weeks at the Venice Art
Center.
The show runs through
March 7.
The exhibit was the vis-
ion of Regina Marelic, but she
passed away a year ago before
her vision became reality. Her
dream was carried out by
Daria Tomashosky, president
of the Ukrainian-American
Club of Southwest Florida,
and the, co-chairs of the
exhibit Christyna Bodnar
Sheldon and Klara Szpiczka.
"I've been up until 2 or 3
a.m. every night this week,"


said Daria, who is helping
to assemble a booklet to
accompany the exhibit. "But
this will be a really won-
derful exhibit of Ukrainian
art. For instance, we have a
display of more than 100
embroidered pillows you'll
just want to dive into it."
Christyna explained, "The
designs all have meaning,
and many of the designs
and symbols have their roots
in pre-Christian times."
She said they include
pagan symbols drawn from
nature that were later adapt-
ed to Christianity.
On exhibit
A collection of antique
and contemporary icons will
be featured in the exhibit.
"The icons represent


New Testament figures, and
were meant to inspire peo-
ple to pray and contemplate
spiritual things," said Chris-
tyna.
The exhibit includes hun-
dreds of pieces, most of
which are on loan from pri-
vate collectors. Sponsors of
the exhibit are Jerry and
Doris Horbachevsky of
North Port and Jerry Poc-
hodaj of St. Petersburg.
Also appearing at the
Venice Art Center is a one-
man exhibit of paintings by
contemporary Ukrainian ar-
tist Jaroslav Stadnyk. He is a
resident of North Port and a
member of the Ukrainian-
American Club.
Symbolism
From the brightly colored


pysanky (painted eggs) to
the intricate embroidery, the
designs and patterns have
their roots in old traditions.
From the colors and pat-
terns on embroidered blous-
es, for instance, you can tell
what region a woman comes
from.
The practice of dyeing eggs
in bright colors and patterns
pre-dates Christianity and the
Easter tradition. The eggs
were used for healing and for-
tunetelling, and in Spring
revival ceremonies. It was
only natural that pysanky
was adapted for Easter rit-
uals as well.
The colors have their own
meanings. White stood for
purity, and eggs with totally
white backgrounds were
placed on the graves of chil-


SUN PHOTOS BY KHARLI ROSE
The religious iconsare a uniquely Ukrainian device, and there
are specific formulas as to how they are paint-ed, the type of
wood used, and the type of paints employed.

chair Klara Szpiczka embroider Tuesday in anticipation of the Art Ukraine 2006 Exhibit, through March 7 at the Venice Art
Center. It's open to the public.


dren. Red stands for the sun,
happiness in life, hope and
passion. Eggs decorated
with circles are used to pro-
tect the home, because a cir-
cle has no beginning or end
and thus evil cannot pene-
trate it.
The Ukrainian-American
Club of Southwest Florida
has more than 100 members
from as far away as Fort
Myers to Sarasota. The ex-
hibit includes art forms that
are distinctly Ukrainian, in-
cluding pysanky (elaborately
decorated eggs), religious
icons, embroidery (including
125 embroidered pillows,
and many antique embroi-.
deries), ceramics, wdod


carving, paintings and bead
work. A few of the items
are for sale.
The exhibit, "Art Ukraine
2006," is on display at the
Venice Art Center, 390
Nokomis Ave. S. in Venice,
through March 7.
The Venice Art Center is
open 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday
through Friday, and 10,.a.mn.-
2 p.m. on Saturday. There
will be some kind of pro-
gram, demonstration or lec-
ture every day of the exhibit
between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Call the center for ,details.
485-7136.

Hoffman at shoffman@

With intricate designs relative to the different regions and cultures of Ukraine, wood carvings, embroidery, Easter eggs (pysanky), ceramics, wood carvings and bead work (gerdany) are on
exhibit at the Art Ukraine 2006 Exhibit through March 7 at the Venice Art Center.

cate. Mr. Kaltenbach serves as Chief
Executive Officer of the center, which
