V HA plan cuts low-income units


Internal memos show executive director Peter
Lopez wanted to "avoid public discussion" of a
30-percent reduction in low-income apartmen-s
at Grove Terrace.

thority Executive Director
Peter Lopez, VHA's financial
consultant Kristen Packard
and Chip Comell of Picerne
Development reveal there
would only be 35 low-income
apartments in the complex
after redevelopment, regard-
less of whether the expansion
has 72 total units or 144 units.
Lopez also describes how
evictions and the relocation
program can be used to elim-
inate at least 11 current ten-
ants by the time the project is


completed two years from
now. The executive director
states the Residents Council
supports the idea, but urges
project developers to "avoid
public discussion of that
point," he wrote.
"The key is whether we can
whittle down the current 46
households to 35," Lopez
wrote in his Dec. 28 e-mail.
"One possibility is that some
residents will take their
(rental) vouchers and never
return. If five go that route,
then we are looking at cutting


another six. Evictions could
play a role here."
'It wasn't an oversight'
VHA applied Feb. 1 for
Low-Income Housing Tax
Credit financing with the
Florida Housing Finance
Corp. It will find out in August
if tax credits will be awarded
to finance Phase 1 of its rede-
velopment project at a cost of
$11.3 million.
There would be 72 units
built with this money. VHA
hopes to win tax credits for


another 72, all for the elderly,
in 2007.
The application will face a
rocky road, especially amid
claims of exclusion, deceit
and padded expenses from
VHA Residents Council presi-
dent Carter Canada and
attorney Jon Preiksat, who is
representing residents pro
bono.
The Residents Council

Drawing conclusions about Kennedy assassination


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER


This is the first ofa two-
part series about Harold
"Skip"Rydberg and his par-
ticipation in the investigation
ofPresident John EKennedy's
assassination. The first part
covers the events in 'which
Rydberg was involved in the
days immediately following
the assassination, and his
role in the Warren
Commission investigation.

Like most people, Harold
"Skip" Rydberg remembers
where he was when he
learned President John E
Kennedy had been shot and
killed by an assassin.
"I was teaching an anato-
my class," said Rydberg, now
65 and living in North Port.
Rydberg's class was at the
Medical Illustration School at
the Naval Medical Center in
Bethesda, Md. At 21, Rydberg
was the school's art depart-
ment head and the art direc-
tor for the center.
What he didn't know at the
time was how the assassina-.
tion would affect his life,

sending him on 42-year quest
to correct what he calls an
injustice and clear his name.
Rydberg said he had been
at Bethesda for only a short
time when the president was
killed. A native of Chicago, he
grew up in Sarasota and
joined the Navy in 1958. He
first trained as a hospital
corpsman, then studied to be
a medical illustrator.
'A medical illustrator has
to study many of the same
courses as doctors do,"
Rydberg explained. These
include anatomy and physi-
ology and 'surgical proce-
dures.
Soon he was teaching
classes to younger recruits,
which is what he was doing
when word spread on the
base about not only the presi-
dent's death, but that his
body would be coming to
their facility.
Rydberg stopped the class
immediately. All enlisted men
had been ordered to return to
their quarters.
Later that night, Rydberg
was part of the honor guard
that greeted the helicopter
carrying Kennedy's body. He


remembers seeing Jacqueline
Kernnedy's hand on the gray
steel coffin as they removed it
from the aircraft.
Afterward, Rydberg said.
he and his friends went to a
restaurant, where they dis-
cussed with disbelief the
events they had witnessed.
Being near the body of an
assassinated president would
have been a memorable
event in almost anyone's life.
But the 21-year-old Rydberg
couldn't have predicted how
his life would become inter-
twined with one of the most
controversial death investiga-
tions of all time

Two days, three drawings
More than three months
later, Rydberg, with little
experience as a medical illus-
trator, was called upon to
draw three illustrations of
Kennedy's neck and head
wounds for doctors who were
to testify before the Warren
Commission.
The Warren Commission
used these illustrations to
support its "lone gunman"

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
JULIE SMITH
-.. )!y -, J'j?^?, "rT ;..
: 4 L[' uM ,. .' ,


A heads-up notice dating
back five years should be
more than enough.
Apparently that isn't the
case when it comes to county
road improvements, leading
some Venice Planning Com-
mission members to feel as if
city development is being
"held hostage" by Sarasota
County.
City staff updated plan-
ning commission members
on road projects in the Venice
area. North Venice and a lack
of foresight dominated the
conversation, with fingers
pointing at county trans-
portation officials.
Venice has been asking for
a traffic light and additional
turn lanes at the Laurel and
Knights Trail road intersec-
tion for five years. Despite
allocating $5.5 million worth
of city impact fee money, the
county still doesn't plan on
starting the job until 2008.
An estimated 7,000 homes,
a 20-screen movie theater


Florida Department of Transportation crews install an addi-
tional southbound lane to U.S. 41 just south of Albee Road.
The U.S. 41 widening project from Bird Bay Plaza north to
State Road 681 is predicted to last until the end of the year,
but the state has yet to provide funding for right-of-way acqui-
sition south of Bird Bay Plaza to Center Road.


and a shopping center will
eventually be built east of
Interstate 75, all of them
along Laurel and Knights Trail
roads.
And all of them need that
traffic light.
"Let's not let the county
dictate to us what we need
out there.... We should not be
held hostage to our develop-
ment vision for our city,"

The traffic signal and

Bed tax revenue will


promote region


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


Another record year of rev-
enue generated from the
tourist development bed tax
could translate into an in-
crease in promotion for the
area and more grants for the
arts.
The Tourist Development
Council heard proposals from
representatives of the Sara-
sota Convention & Visitors
Bureau and the Sarasota
County Arts Council about
investing some of the extra
money to benefit the com-
munity.
Virginia Haley, the execu-
tive director of the visitors
bureau, said the bureau
would like to use the money
on a summer radio blitz to
attract people to the area dur-
ing the traditional "slow sea-
son."
The extra bed tax revenue
the visitors bureau could use
is about $569,000. Of that,
Haley said she wants to use
only $355,500. The rest would
be put into a reserve fund.
The bureau used its wind-
fall from 2005 for a radio blitz
that resulted in a 17-percent

increase in tourist develop-
ment tax revenue in June and
and a 10-percent increase in
July. Red tide and hurricanes
held the numbers to a 2-per-
cent increase in August.
The radio advertising
would coincide with print ads
and could be tied in to a pro-
motional contest offering lis-
teners visits to the area.
In hand
Another plan is to create
the "Spirit of Sarasota Rest-
aurant Week," which will dis-
pel the perception of Flor-
idians that Sarasota does not
have a variety of activities and
restaurants.
"We all know that isn't
true," Haley said. "We have
the highest concentration of
Zagat-rated restaurants."
The event would be held
May 13-21 and include 25
restaurants from Venice to
Longboat Key. It's designed to
create excitement prior to
Memorial Day.
The idea is to set prices for
lunch and dinner at the
restaurants as a way of show-
ing off their culinary delica-

Bridge schedules eyed

From the Feb. 10, 1975, Gondolier Sun


STAFF REPORT

The city of Venice has offi-
cially endorsed County Com-
missioner Beverly Clay's ef-
forts to control Intracoastal
waterway bridge openings.
In 'a special resolution, the
city voted to support Mrs.
Clay and to offer aid "in any
way possible" to further her
efforts.
If the Florida Department
of Transportation agrees with
Mrs. Clay and the city, it'
would take about three years
to implement scheduled


bridge openings.
The delay Would be the
result of nautical map
changes that must be made
before the rules could take
effect, .maps were recently
revised and will not be
changed again fro three years.
Many attempts have been
made to control bridge open-.
ings. Venice City Councilman
Frank Walther was one of the
first to object to the random
openings.
"I've had to wait while two
hippies and a dog sailed
under the bridge with a bam-

complained.
Venice Fire Chief Ted
Deming included the bridge
openings in his monthly fire
reports. During those open-
ings, fire equipment used to be
cut off from the central part of
the city. Since then a second
fire station has been built to
alleviate that problem.
Although the law says
boats with collapsible flying
bridges must lower them
rather than make the bridge
go up, few actually do.

The result is many more

wise be necessary, the city
points out.
Boaters disagree. They
claim it is the bridge tender's
fault there are delays. William
Moomaw, commodore of the
Venice Sailing Squadron,
claims the bridge tenders
open the bridges too soon,
creating unnecessary delays
for motorists.
"It's the bridge tenders who
must learn their jobs," he told
the city.


Florida is growing by about
1,000 new residents every day.

national "Get Into Florida" lot-
tery. Anyone wanting to move
here has to buy a lottery ticket.
Each week, a lucky few win.
We let them move here. All lot-
tery proceeds are distributed
to growing counties to fund
needed new services.
Tourists are welcome, of
course. Bring money, as usual.

Unsung heroes will be honored


BY RUTH LANDO
SPECIAL TO THE SUN NEWSPAPERS

The Community Founda-
tion of Sarasota County and
the Wilson-Wood Foundation
have once again partnered to
recognize three outstanding
community volunteers who
will be named Unsung He-
roes on Wednesday.
A reception is planned for
5:30 p.m. at Michael's On East
on Wednesday for three Sara-
sota County residents.
These Unsung Heroes have
distinguished themselves
through unselfish devotion to
causes in their community for
which they have not been pre-
viously recognized.
The Unsung Heroes for
2006 are:
Elaine Allen-Emrich of
North Port, the editor of the
North Port Sun, who advo-
cates the welfare and empow-
erment of everyone in her
community. She works tire-
lessly to support children and
needy families. She is a mem-
ber of a local Kiwanis group


that supports
a back-to-
school re-
source expo
for North Port
d children and
operates the
Children's
Community
Allen-Emrich Clothing
Closet.
Phyllis Siskel of Sarasota,
an animal lov-
er who volun-
.teers for the
Animal Res-
cue Coalition,
the Humane
Society of
Sarasota
County, All
Faiths Food
Siskel Bank and sev-
eral other or-
ganizations.
Bob Sullenberger of Ven-
ice, a devoted volunteer to the
Catholic Diocese of Venice,
the Knights of Columbus, his
neighborhood and his
church.


CITY OF VENICE CALENDAR


Spotted
For the past
12 years, the
Community
Foundation
and the Wil-
son -Wo od
Foundation
have provid-
Sullenberger ed public rec-
ognition to
ordinary citizens who serve
their community in extraordi-
nary ways.
The Unsung Heroes
awards honor the selfless in-
dividuals who often go unno-
ticed, but who make a vital
contribution to our quality of
life, according to Wendy,
Hopkins, vice president of
grants and program services
for the Community Foun-
dation of Sarasota.
The goal of these awards is
to acknowledge their efforts
and to encourage others to
follow their excellent exam-
ples of dedicated community
service, she said.
Nominations for Unsung
Heroes are made by volunteer


"spotters" in the community
who represent the geographic
and cultural diversity of
Sarasota County.
The anonymity of the spot-
ters insures the integrity and
success of the process. Spot-
ters' written nominations are
reviewed by a special com-
mittee of community leaders
who choose the Unsung He-
roes recipients, They are then
approved by the Community
Foundation board of direc-
tors. Recipients receive a cash
award to use in anyway they
choose.
The foundations,
The Community Founda-
tion is a public charity founded
in 1979 by the Southwest
Florida Estate Planning Coun-
cil to help their clients create
permanent charitable funds
that are for good, forever.
With more than 500 pooled
funds and assets in excess of
$130 million, the Community
Foundation awards grants and
scholarships totaling about $5
million each year.


This helps donors fulfill
their dreams and makes char-
itable giving truly work for
our community. Areas of im-
pact include the arts, health
and human services, the
environment, education and
animal welfare, Hopkins said.
TheWilson-Wood Founda-
tion is a private foundation


that united two families
whose goal was to give people
in Sarasota and Manatee
counties access to a variety of
programs that improve their
daily life. The Foundation
awards grants annually in the
areas of civic and community
affairs, education ard health
and human services.

CAFR audit on school finances 'exemplary'


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

A new financial audit by
Cherry, Bekaert & Holland
has given Sarasota County
School District a thumbs up,
announced the district on
Tuesday.
We've given the district a
S"clean opinion," said Troy
Manning, CBH Senior Audit
Manager. "It's the highest rat-
ing we can offer and repre-
sents the highest financial
standards by the district."
It's the second time the dis-
trict has participated in the
comprehensive review in as
many years and with the
same results. District admin-
istrators called the school's
finances exemplary.
"It's important that the
public trusts the district to be
a good steward of its fi-
nances," said Superintendent
Gary Norris. "The community
has a big decision to make. It's


(good to know) when talking
to people about the upcom-
ing referendum ... that dis-
trict funds are being spent
wisely."
"It's also important to note
it's been 24 years since the
district has had an unsatisfac-
tory audit," added board
president Carol Todd. She
points to glowing reports by
independent auditors, the
Financial Advisory Commit-
tee and recent awards like the
International Certificate of
Excellence in Financial Re-
porting as indicators of sound
financial management by the
district.
Moody's bond rating in-
creased over the previous
audited fiscal year from Al to
Aa3, according to CBH, while
Fitch IBCA remained the
same. Finance officers for
Sarasota County School Dis-
trict say the higher bond rat-
ing is due to the recent 10-
year-issue for $50 million in


bonds for the construction of
Venice Elementary, Phillippi
Shores and Wilkinson Ele-
mentary.
Total revenues (general
funds, program revenues and
earnings) increased 9 percent
over 2004, a $36.7 million
increase, while expenses in-
creased 12 percent or $44.2
million.
State resources increased
by $11 million, or 21 percent,
mainly attributed to the
state's class size reduction
program. Local funding in-
creased by $15.4 million, or 7
percent, primarily as a result
of an increase in property tax
revenues of $13.5 million.
Total General Fund expen-
ditures increased from $289.2
million to $330.2 million,
reflecting major increases in
the areas of salary, employee
benefits' and purchased ser-
vices, according to CBH.
The audit showed a healthy
fund balance partly respon-


sible for the successful audit
and higher bond rating that
totaled $133.7 million back in
June, but much of that lay in
.the capital budget earmarked
for future projects. The report
listed a $55 million fund bal-
ance in unreserved General
Funds, but $20 million has
since been moved into the
2005-06 operating budget
CAFR is a best practices
financial management review
of a governmental entity and is
done in conjunction with the
annual fiscal audits. In addition
to scrutiny at the local and state
level, CAFR determines
whether a school board has
been fiscally responsible for
expending federal monies.
Manning said her firm con-
ducted special tests on Title 1,
charter school funds, 21st
Century grants and FEMA fed-
eral funds. There were no ques-
tioned costs or disagreements
over federal dollars and spend-
ing requirements, she said.


District wins legal battle over charter school appeals


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County School
Board chalked up another
pair of legal victories, this
week over its decision to deny
two charter school appli-
cants. On Tuesday the State
Board of Education accepted
the recommendations by the
state's Charter SchoolAppeals
Commission back on Feb. 1 to
deny the applications.
In its earlier ruling, the
commission sided with the
school board's position that it
had "statutory good cause"
under current charter school
law to deny the applications.
Sarasota County School
Board denied all five charter
school applications filed this
school year back in October,
in* uding Summit Academy
MI agement, a charter
school that serves special
needs students with Asperg-
er's disease, and Challenge
Foundation Academy, that
hoped to open its doors in
Venice.

The state board made its
ruling after five-minute pre-
sentations from both sides
without asking any questions.
Insinuations
The school board original-
ly rejected Summit Acad-
emy's application on at least
10 sub-categories, including
inadequate school design,
inability to provide certified
teachers or measure FCAT
performance goals and out-
comes, and lack of communi-
ty support. But the Appeals
Commission found those
accusations flawed and re-
jected them as the basis for
denying their application,
except for one. The commis-
sion very narrowly sided with
the school board on a final
issue. The commission split
its vote 3-3, with the chair
casting the deciding vote, in
favor of the school board on
finding budget errors. Be-
cause it only takes one find-
ing to deny a charter school
application, Summit Acad-
emy's appeal was denied.

Art Hardy, attorney for the
school board, said in earlier
testimony he felt Summit
Academy was "probably at
least 30 percent over project-
ed in their revenues."
"The budget didn't cut it,"
said commissioner's designee
Kim McDougal at the appeals
commission meeting. "They
copied another school's bud-
get ... they didn't take the
time to do their own budget,
and it just didn't pass muster."
During the same meeting,
Barbara Auger, attorney for
Summit Academy Manage-
ment, defended the school
budget, saying they were rea-
sonable preliminary budget
figures based on identified
students.
Ultimately, the commis-
sion sided with Summit Acad-
emy on many of its appeal
charges, but it took only one
charge to stick the budget
error.

and ADHD.
Challenged
The decision to deny
Challenge Foundation Acad-
emy's application was based
on the applicant's relation-
ship with another Venice
charter school Student
Leadership Academy. School
board members said SLA's
rocky start (SLA was being
sued over a contract by its
founding principal at the
time) and declining enroll-
ment were valid grounds to
deny the charter. CFA officials
argued the school board
wrongly focused on its ties to
SLA and not the merits of
CFA's application.
Due to a reporter's error,

Sensitive and park


lands program


merger possible


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Efficiently dealing with the
purchase of property for
neighborhood parks and
environmentally sensitive
lands is among several items
the Sarasota County commis-
sioners will address as part of
their meeting Wednesday.
The board will discuss the
possibility of creating a Land
Acquisition Advisory Com-
mittee for environmentally
sensitive lands and neighbor-
hood park lands.
The staff recommends
expanding the Environment-
ally Sensitive Lands Oversight
Committee to include park
lands, which also was includ-
ed in the recent referendum to
extend the land-buying pro-
gram.
The staff also recommends
merging the two programs to
help increase efficiency of the
two independent programs. It
would help the funding and
purchasing programs become
more streamlined and would
help evaluate potential prop-
erties.
Water agreement
The board is being asked to
approve an agreement to join
the Southwest Florida Water
Management District for a
pollutant load model devel-
opment program.
The county is being asked
to pay for half of the $863,000
costs. The program would
help determine water quality
and impacts of stormwater on
the county's bays and estuar-
ies.
Sensitive land buy
The county is buying, 22
acres of land next to the
rif~ ~~~~~~4 y' ; ffl... !1'


Bobby Jones Golf Course in
Sarasota for $3.25 million as
part of the environmentally
sensitive lands program.
The property is within the
Circus Hammock Protection
Priority Site and sits on 17th
Street.
Project extension
The Lemon Bay Habitat
Restoration Phase I project
studying the Woodmere
Creek Basin base flow will be
extended to Dec. 31. The pro-
posed modification also will
meet regional objectives of
water quality and habitat
improvements in bays and
estuaries.
Financial report
Clerk of the Circuit Court
Karen Rushing will present
the financial report of
Sarasota County for the fiscal
year ending Sept. 30, 2005.
The report provides an
assessment of the county's
finances and includes: a state-
ment on the county's financial
position;'a look at the impact
of capital projects and other
infrastructure assets; an evalu-
ation of whether the county's
current-year revenues were
sufficient to pay for current-
year services; an analysis of
how the county finances its
programs; and an illustration
of the cost of providing ser-
vices.
The board will receive the
annual evaluation and report
from County Attorney
Stephen DeMarsh.
Wednesday's meeting is
1:30 p.m. at the Sarasota
CountyAdministration Center,
1660 Ringling Blvd., Sarasota.

posely excluded and the VHA
board misled. ,Preiksat was
particularly upset at how
Lopez told developers that
residents supported the idea,
despite their being excluded
from every planning meeting.
A family must make no
more than 35 percent -
$18,900 a year of the area's
median family income of
$54,000 in order to qualify for
low-income housing in
Sarasota County.
These "poorest of the
poor" are actually losing
apartment units because the
developer can make more
money off what's known as
affordable housing people
who make up to $35,100-
because they pay more in
rent, Preiksat said.
People with disabilities,
senior citizens and single par-
ents all are being forgotten,
according to redevelopment
opponents.
"This gives you the reason
they didn't want to get the res-
idents involved," Preiksat
said. "There's been a willful
exclusion. It wasn't- an over-
sight. ... These are the poorest
of the poor in America."

No to net decrease
All of this questioning has
sparked the interest of Venice


CONFUSING TERMS
Housing terminology can be confusing. The Venice Housing
Authority has been criticized because its expansion would actually
reduce the number of units for low-income housing, despite
increasing the number of affordable housing units.
Exact dollar amounts vary, but here's a general guideline on how
to define these terms:
* Median family income The "middle income,' not the aver-
age, which is found after dropping off the highest and lowest
salaries. Sarasota County's median family income is $54.000 a
year, according to Venice Housing Authority.
* Low-income housing A family must make 35 percent or less
of the area's median family income to qualify. That amount is
518,900 in Sarasota County, and all 50 VHA units are dedicated to
this category.
* Affordable housing This refers to 65 percent or less of medi-
an income, which is 535,100. All new VHA units, as well as 15 of
the low-income ones, would be for this category.
* Workforce housing Typically relates to people who make 85
percent, $45,900 a year, of median family income. VHA would not


have any workforce housing.


City Council. The mayor
appoints members of VHA's
board, but it is an entirely
separate entity from the city.
However, the city must
approve any redevelopment
projects and the complaints
are now showing up at city
hall. VHA members and
developers will give a presen-
tation to council Feb. 28 to try
to answer those concerns.
Grove Terrace still needs to
rezone and increase density
from 13 units an acre to 18 in
order to build Phase 2, push-
ing the project up to 144


units. No applications have
been filed.
Upon learning of the e-
mail memos, City Manager
Marty Black was concerned at
the idea of losing low-income
housing.
"We need to have a sizable
pool of that in the area," Black
said. "We would, support the
higher density, but at no time
would the city (approve more
density for) a net decrease in
housing opportunities."

TAX IA


Other money would be
used to bring travel writers to
the area. This includes tap-
ping into the lucrative inter-
national tourist market,
which can also help supple-
ment summer vacancies.
The bureau also would
upgrade its postage on its vis-
itors guide to first-class. Haley
said'bulk-rate postage creates
too much of a gap between
when people ask for the
brochure and when they
receive- it, typically three
weeks.
Council members won-
dered why anyone would
want the brochure in this age
of the Internet, when so
much more information is


F t v


available online.
'"A lot of people like that in
their hand," Haley said, espe-
cially with the older popula-
tion that visits the area.
Each is being added to the
bureau's plan for the upcom-
ing year above the existing
$1.9 million budget.
County Commissioner
Nora Patterson, who chairs
the council, said all of the
plans and changes must be
formally approved by the
county commissioners.

With the same expected
extra money from the bed tax,
Caswell said the plans are to
use the $165,000 toward in-
creasing the grants program.
"We have built trust in the
grant process," Caswell said.
Patterson advised that a
portion should go toward the

tions in the tax between Au-

theory. However, Rydberg
said, he had little time or
information to prepare his
illustrations.
Rydberg said he received
"secret verbal orders" from
Navy Cmdr. John Stover to
complete the drawings to
help Naval doctors' testimony
before the commission. The
order, given on Friday, March
13, 1964, said the illustrations
needed to be ready to present
to the commission on
Monday, March 16, 1964.
The doctors, James Humes
and Thornton) Boswell re-
quested they be done in color
and life-size on 20-inch-by-
30-inch illustration board.
"I was only given two days
to draw three life-size draw-
ings," he said.
"I asked if it would be pos-
sible to see the X-rays and
photographs, and the answer
was the doctors did not have
them available for their testi-
mony," Rydberg recalled. 'As
a normal medical illustrator,
you need as much medical
evidence to do the drawings.
That includes the autopsy
report, the photos and X-rays


SFINpANCIAL GROUP
SAtlantic Preferred Insurance
MFlorida Preferred Property
Mercury Insurance G 0up Southern Famiy Insurance


to do the best possible job."
He remembers being told
the FBI and Secret Service
took the undeveloped film
and X-rays.
Nothing to go on
Rydberg spent two days in
a 10 foot by 10 foot room, with
an armed Marine guarding
the door. There was no artist's
table, and he was told to bring
only his watercolor set and
some sketch paper, nothing
more.
'At the end of each day I
would call to have Lt Cmdr.
Lynde D. McCormick walk
with me, the drawings cov-
ered and put them in a large
safe in the administration
office," Rydberg recalls.
"The only things which
went on in the small room
were Dr. Humes and Dr.
Boswell, who would come in
the room and check on the
drawings," he said.
While drawing, Rydberg
said he had nothing to go by
except verbal anatomical
landmarks and imagination
about how the president was
shot.
"During the drawings,
Humes specifically asked me


to make the right eye black,
like a large hemorrhage had
happened," Rydberg said. "So
I drew what I thought was the
right positions at the times of
each shot."
"This was the only two
days I had to complete these
imaginary positions and then
on Monday they were turned
over to Adm. Calvin Galloway,
commanding officer of the
National Naval Medical
Center," he said.
When Rydberg finished
the drawings, the watercolor
set and the sketches were
destroyed.
"They wanted no one to
know by guessing the colors
used what I was doing," he
said. 'A little paranoid, I think,
but they did it after the draw-
ings were done on Monday."
"I went back to my normal
duties, noting that I only had
secret verbal orders to discuss
with no one what I was doing
or did."

Part Two will cover
Rydberg's insight into how he
felt about his role, what he
has done to try to correct the
mistakes in his drawings and
his plans for the future.


TRAIL from Page 1A


2008.
City staff have blamed the
problem on a difference in
philosophy: Sarasota County
waits until transportation
reaches a critical stage, and
then launches road improve-
ments, while Venice makes
those improvements before
development goes in.
Planning and Zoning Di-
rector Tom Slaughter has used
examples like requiring Ve-
netian Golf & River Club to
build Laurel Road east of 1-75,
and requiring J&J Homes to
dedicate the right of way for
the extension of Jacaranda
Boulevard between Border
and Laurel roads.
Four other potential devel-
opments will be required to
build north-south collector
roads for Laurel and Border
roads. as well as dedicate right
of way for future expansion of
Laurel Road.


"You're getting Laurel and
Border road right-of-way
dedication at no cost to the
taxpayer," Slaughter told
planning commission Tues-
day. "I don't know that (the
county) realizes that."
Weaver suggested taking
over those roads so the city
could correct them and pre-
pare for the development.
City residents have already
paid for those improvements
once through county taxes
and road impact fees. As-
suming, complete financial
responsibility for roads that
benefit the entire county also
would be unfair to city resi-
dents, Slaughter said after the
meeting.
A Sarasota. County memo
to the Florida Department of
Community Affairs led to the
state questioning city dev'el-


opment in North Venice. City
Manager Marty Black and
Mayor Dean Calamaras both
have said the county "blind-
sided" the city with its letter.
Black will travel to Tallahassee
next week to lobby for devel-
opment approval.
Black accuses the county
of using one .set of transporta-
tion numbers in order to stop
city development and anoth-
er set to approve an estimated
12,000 Sarasota County-juris-
diction homes along Center
Road, East Venice Avenue and
River Road.
'"The trust issues have pret-
ty much broken down," Black
said Tuesday.
City and county staffs will
meet March 17 to discuss prob-
lems and set the agenda for a
joint city council-county com-
missioner meeting April-6..

Factor mobile homes into housing equation


F or quite some time, we have written
about, and listened to, concerns about
affordable and workforce housing. Part
of the answer to the problem could be as
obvious as mobile homes.
We should all know the issue by now. The
average price of a home has gone sky high;
rents start at $800 or more a month for a two-
bedroom home or condo, if you can find one;
and apartment complexes are disappearing
faster than food samples at Publix.
New hires by the county, private business-
es and the school district find it very difficult
to locate a home they can afford. Too often
employers are being rejected by prospects,
who say they cannot afford to live in the area.
The problem is on the priority list of all
levels of government. So far, however, not


much has been done. While a handful of
affordable housing projects has been
approved, the costs are still high; it will be
about two years before any of the projects are
completed, and they will still not meet the
demand.
Recently, readers have written or called
about mobile homes being the most afford-
able housing available. They make a good
point.
Even semiluxurious mobile homes are
affordable. At a Florida State Fair display,
mobile home manufacturers were offering
1,900-square-foot, three-bedroom mobile
homes with tile floors, garden tubs and huge
walk-in closets for $99,000.
Worried about hurricanes? Some of the
mobile h6me displays prominently featured


photos taken in Punta Gorda no less of
their mobile homes standing among ruins of
others.
The difference was that new mobile home
standards have produced much safer prod-
ucts in the past decade. Representatives of
the mobile home manufacturers claim their
homes will withstand 110-120-mph "sus-
tained" winds and gusts higher than that.
That leaves only one problem: the cost of
land. With "cheap" lots going for more than
$30,000 although they are going down
daily that can add significantly to the cost
of the mobile home. Also, finding a place to
put a mobile home is a challenge considering
the restrictions put on manufactured hous-
ing by zoning, not to mention the sale of
parks to make way for homes and condos.


There are solutions to these problems.
County governments could rezone land to
allow mobile home parks open to every-
one, not just a refuge for those 55-and-over.
Land trusts are another possibility: hom'e-
owners get a lot free for a long period of time
-99 years in some cases or pay a minimal
fee to lease on. '
Mobile home parks could be up and run-
ning in far less time than it takes' to build
some of the multi-unit projects that are
online now.
And, finally, the stereotypes that are com-
mon to what the industry now refers to, as
"manufactured homes" are outdated.
County governments need to take a seri-
ous look at incorporating mobile homes into
their list of affordable housing solutions.-'

EDIMARTIN
COLUMNIST


As I left the recent city.
council meeting, a woman
came up to me and said,
"They just don't get it, do
they?"
She was referring to coun-
cil's lack of positive response
to ideas about planning for
the new North Venice areas
off Laurel Road that had been
advanced by citizens Betty
Intagliata and Don O'Con-
nell. She specifically men-
tioned Mayor Dean Cala-
maras' statement that the
area would be a- suburb and
that people wanted to live like
that, and they had downtown
Venice for a city.
Intagliata and O'Connell
each encouraged council to
look at the ideas based 'on
John Nolen's work on which
our current downtown Venice
is based. O'Connell actually
gave each member a- book
that spelled out how other
communities are applying
those principles.
I suggested at the meeting
that rather than going ahead
with piecemeal approval of
the large plots in that area,
council might want to piggy-
back on the planning process
started by Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation of Venice
that had involved private
developers, architects, plan-
ners from the county and oth-
ers in trying to think, in the
jargon of today, "outside the
box" about the area.
The "new urbanism" con-
cepts growing out of Nolen's
work do not have to be
applied to a formal city; it is
quite possible to use some of
the better ideas for county or
community development.
The foundation plan essen-
tially does that for its pro-
posed affordable-housing
development, and it hopes to
link private developers into
an overall scheme.
The council voted 5-2
(Vicki Taylor and John Moore
voted no) to approve zoning
for a development called Villa
Paradiso, which will provide
new residents with 593 new
housing units, 300 of which
will be in 57-foot-tall build-
ings clustered together at one
end of a 155-acre develop-
ment.
The company gave the city

Marty Black pointed out the
city did -not want too much
park there, not wanting the
responsibility for its upkeep.
Council member Fred
Hammett seemed to miss the
point that people suggesting
council look at the various
new areas as a sector did not
mean they were accusing
council of being uninformed.
,,: He said, "We know what is
,-.RUL t.e." Likle theyy Lust
don't get it," Hammetr's atti-'
tude often reminds me of
another saying from that era:
"He knows everything and
understands nothing."
The point is that council
could ask Black and planning
staff to lay out some concep-
tual plans for encouraging
developers to link together in
ways that are valuable ecolog-
ically and encourage develop-
ment of a real "community."
There is nothing of that
kind there now to know
about, except what the foun-
dation has begun, and folks at
those meetings do not recall
Hammett being present.
I encouraged the lady to
participate in discussions at
future council meetings, be-
cause there are a number of
members who seem willing
and able to'listen and learn.
There also are some peo-
ple, it seems to me, who are
caught up in the power struc-
ture of Venice, which has
been dominated by. develop-
ers, their lawyers and people
who used to be in power and
.want to keep things working
for their friends.
The vehicle they use for
this is a political action com-
mittee called the Citizens for
Quality Government.
Here is a sample of infor-
mation from the supervisor of
elections' office on this PAC.
From Oct. 1 to Dec. 31,
2005, the CQG received
$5,800 and spent $9,217.18 on
Venice election expenses.
About 80 percent of the con-
tributions, $4,500, came from
nine individual contributions
of $500.
Those donors were Geor-
gia Miller, wife of developer
Mike Miller; E.G. "Dan"
Boone, Steve Boone and Jeff
Boone, who often represent
Miller; Merle Graser former
mayor and banker; David
Farley, a former council
member who announced he
wished to invest in a Miller
plan to develop a city beach;
John and Linda Moore, candi-
date for re-election to council
and his wife; Eric Robinson,
certified public accountant;
and Robert Golden, occupa-
tion not listed.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


CQG not pulling anybody's strings


Editor:
I feel compelled to respond to Ed Martin's column wherein
he said I was cheering for the local political bosses, and implied
I supported actions that might be considered'improper.
First, if there are political bosses, I don't know who .they are.
No one who has presented plans for zoning changes, annexa-
tions, buildings or other things that might benefit individuals,
law firms, developers or others has ever asked me to support
anything.
This includes members of the Citizens for Quality
Government, which, as Ed says, I helped form.
The one exception is the plan to develop the area next to the
Venice Avenue Bridge. These folks met with every council
member and the meetings were printed in both newspapers.
The plans were not voted on and have been withdrawn.
. Additionally, I have never voted for any land-use item that
was not thoroughly studied and recommended by our plan-
ning department and the city manager.
The CQG's only function is to support quality candidates for
office. Neither the PAC nor individual members ever present
an agenda or ask for support of anything.
Once candidates are elected, they are on their own and are
never contacted during their terms of office by the CQG. If a
member becomes a candidate, he not allowed to participate in
further decisions of the CQG.
This is a group of honest folks, most of whom belong to.
Venice civic clubs.
I like Ed and think he is sincere but sometimes misguided.
He seems to equate Venice government to Washington and
New Jersey politics.

Censorship would
lead us to '1984'

Editor:
-I had considered staying
out of the cartoon debate, as
the rioting and killing was
doing a perfectly good job of
propagating the image of
Muslims as an intolerant lot
stuck in a 12th century mind
set of hate, reprisals and
death.
That was until a neighbor
wrote suggesting censorship
by saying: "The display of
such cartoons is nothing less
than emotional torture, un-
tamed verbal violence and
intellectual terrorism."
I understand the hurt
occasioned by insensitivity, I
am well used to daily blas-
phemies, but my response is


to move on, not bum and kill
or call 'for institutionalized
censorship, sensitivity or
bowdlerization. Shrugging
my shoulders and turning the
other cheek makes me a bet-
ter Christian, not a worse one.
The writer continued:
'Americans are taught free-
dom of speech ends where
sensitivities of people begin."
No, we are taught, or should
be, that some things are OK
and some not, and we have a
right to be insensitive but
should be thoughtful how we
exercise that right. The cen-
sorship of intangibles is
impossible.
Some Muslims are offend-
ed by statuary, hence the
destruction of the two mas-
sive Buddhas in Afghanistan.
Some don't approve of music


and movies; are they to go
next because they too offend?
As for his statement: "It is the
responsibility of our leaders
to direct our masses in devel-
oping a meaningful response
to incidents of hate and racial
bigotry," I would notywant any
government -telling me any-
thing regarding good man-
ners or sensitivity lest we be
headed for George Orwell's
"1984."

A call for more humane
treatment of animals
Editor:
A report from the Con-
gressional Budget Office says
a pandemic generated by
avian influenza could infect
90 million people and kill up
to 2 million in the United
States alone. Health officials
fear bird flu could combine
with a human flu virus, creat-
ing a 'new form that could
spread rapidly throughout
the world.
The ecological cause of
avian influenza and other
contagious diseases is con-
finement and severe over-
crowding of living creatures.
Concentrated confinement of
birds and other animals leads
to contaminated air, build-up
of feces, immune-system
breakdown and disease. The
result is that animals develop
deadly diseases that are easily
transmitted to other animals
and humans.
Hundreds of million chick-
ens and other birds have been
killed in 19 countries that are
attempting to control an epi-
demic of avian influenza that
is spreading "almost uncon-
trollably" through Asia.
There are no international
regulations governing how to
kill birds for disease control,
and the methods being used
to kill them include burning,


drowning, gassing and live
burial.
Sadly, such diseases will
likely spread, flourish, mutate
and jump species barriers as
long as factory farming prac-
tices are common.
In addition to spending
billions of dollars to perfect a
new technology to produce a
vaccine for the avian flu, how
about enacting animal wel-
fare law that would require
more humane and ethical
treatment of all non-human
animals? This would translate
into a cleaner, safer environ-
ment for the animals, which
would ultimately prove to be
healthier for humans.

Renewing 1-mill
is the only option
Editor:
Mr. Vedder, please recon-
sider your stand on the con-
tinuation of our county
school tax. Many of our older
schools are in need of repair
and require constant upkeep.
Have you noticed the many
log cabins we call temporary
school rooms?
I have been a volunteer at
Taylor Ranch. It's not an old
school, but the air system
needs renovation, as do many
of the other schools in the
Sarasota County School Dis-
trict. As to the pay increases,
for our teachers who, I
might add, put in eight- to
nine-hour days arid hours of
work after school this is a
must.
Consider that many of our
older and higher-paid teach-
ers will be retiring. Getting
qualified new instructors to
come here at a modest start-
ing salary will be a challenge.

Say yes to sensible growth


BY BILL EARL
GUEST COLUMNIST


Do you think Sarasota
County is growing too fast?
Do you think there is too
much traffic congestion?
Do you think our environ-
ment is at risk? Do you think
the cost of growth, including
the pollution of Roberts Bay
and Lemon Bay, is too high?
Most of your neighbors
think so too. It is painfully
obvious that growth prob-
lems are getting worse, not
better, in Sarasota County.
The problem is that the
playing field is not level for
citizen input into county
growth management deci-
sions. Special interests, with
their platoons of highly paid,
full-time lobbyists, lawyers
and consultants, drown out
and wear down even those
citizens who try- to express
their concerns at public
meetings and hearings. The
result is rapid and costly
growth.
A grassroots group of your
neighbors called Citizens for
Sensible Growth is sponsor-
ing two amendments to
county law that will help
county government hear and
act on the growth concerns of
its citizens.
The first amendment re-
quires county government to
seek voter approval before
committing your tax dollars
to subsidize growth and
sprawl.
The second amendment
requires a super-majority
vote (four out of five votes
instead of the current three

Why is Venice in the dark?


Fix the lights. I keep noticing that the city of Venice is trying
to fix the nice, new street lights on 41. As of tonight, Feb. 7,
there are 29 lights out on Business 41, and there are nine lights
out on Miami Avenue. Obviously, they're not fixing them or
there's something wrong with them. And if there's something
wrong with those new lights, we should get some new light
poles for no fee. There should be a warranty on this work.


Tacky weeds. I had a com-
ment to make about some-
thing that's very tacky. In the
south here we have grass that
goes dormant in the winter-
time. So if you have a house
thafs not necessarily taken care
of and somewhat neglected
with a brown lawn, mostly
dead, except for this maybe 10
by. 15 patch of dark green
weeds growing 2 and 3 feet tall.
The tacky part of that is that it's
raw sewage from one's septic
system that's feeding that lawn
and keeping it green. Some
people know those 2-foot
weeds look really tacky.
Simple as that. This is about


the dumping of the carts on the
41 Bypass by Grove Terrace.
Isn't it amazing howa cart full of
groceries can get from the store
to there and be dumped, yet
that cart can never get back.


You know, the whole problem
is with these grocery stores that
have these one-way carts. If
you borrow something, put it
back. It's as simple as that. What
do you do, walk by it when you
go back and say I'll just get
another? As far as the sidewalk
problem, that is definitely a
problem. I go through that trail
at least several times a week
and it is awful. Shame on Ven-
ice for not having sidewalks
there.

Mobile home park owners speak up on sale


BY GAVIN OFF
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR


For more than 20 years
Klaus and Mary Allseits have
owned and operated a quiet,
picturesque mobile home
park on Lemon Bay.-
The reaction to their deci-
sion to sell the park has been
anything but quiet.
"It's been very emotional,"
Klaus said. "For 23 years I
think we did a pretty doggone
good job."
Last year, the Allseits
announced they were selling
the park for $7.8 million. The
contract, with local developer
Mark Flannagan, will close in
March 2007, giving residents
two years before they have to
leave the park.
Upscale condominiums
and townhouses will likely
replace Shady Haven's 105
mobile homes, located on
Old Englewood Road just
north of Dearborn Street.
Continuing to operate the
property as a mobile home
park was simply too difficult,
the Allseits said. The 45-year-
old mobile homes have
served their purpose and the
Allseits said they can no
longer run the park as they
would like.
Because of the location
and age of the homes with
some dating back to the
1950s mobile home own-
ers in Shady Haven have not
been able to secure replace-
ment-cost insurance for their
homes.
Without such insurance,
the Allseits said they're at risk,
adding that if a number of
homes were to be destroyed,
"we would be unable to meet
our financial obligations as
park owners."
Hurtful
The Allseits witnessed
firsthand the inability of
mobile homes to withstand
the winds of a hurricane.


They were volunteers in
Arcadia's relief effort shortly
after Hurricane Charley.
"I can't encourage anyone
to live in there year-round,"
Mary said.
Mary said the couple's
"hands were tied," adding
that they have since allowed
residents to sublet their
homes, collecting $1,000 in
rent.
In a three-page letter to
Sarasota County commis-
sioners, the Allseits outlined
Shady Haven's history and
their concerns about contin-
uing to operate it as a mobile
home park.
They also wanted to tell
their side, they said, respond-
ing to comments that had no
regard for the park's residents.
"The way things have been
portrayed and the light we
have been put in has been
hurtful," Mary said.
Mary said each lease
agreement gives the possible
reasons for eviction, includ-
ing "a change of land use."
The Allseits said they even
offered to sell Shady Haven to
its residents for $3 million
seven years ago. The residents
declined the sale and two
years ago dissolved their
association, taking away their
first right of refusal.
Since the offer to the resi-
dents, the Allseits said they've
turned down hundreds of
offers, none of which was to
continue the property as a
mobile home park.
"I've always said to them
up front there's going to be a
day when somebody's going
to offer me enough money
where I can't refuse," Klaus
said.
Be realistic
But Shady Haven residents
have options, said Barb
Green, owner of Englewood

Deputies suspended for allowing gun into jail


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER


Two Sarasota County Sher-
iff's deputies received sus-
pensions for failing to find a
gun on a prisoner.
Sgt. James Minchin and
corrections officer Mike Suar-
ez each received a one-day
suspension, without pay, aft-
er an internal investigation
found they had not followed
proper procedures when they
arrested George Dupree on
Sept. 9.
According to investigators,
Dupree had a concealed
weapon that:deputies failed,
.id finddurihg"ffisfarrest and.
after he was booked.
According to the investiga-
tion report, Dupree had the
gun with him in jail for three
weeks. In this time, Dupree
was stripped and given jail
clothes, and even took a
shower.
Sept. 28, Dupree was then
transported from the jail to
the county courthouse at
2002 Ringling Blvd. in Sara-
sota. A routine search of Du-
pree there turned up a loaded
.38-caliber Colt revolver.
Albatross
Investigators interviewed
nine deputies involved in
Dupree's arrest and booking.

Deputy Debra Taylor told
investigators she made the
initial arrest, but had her
backup, Minchin, conduct
the search.
Mihchin told investigators
he performed the normal
search after a short struggle
with Dupree. Minchin said he
didn't feel anything on Du-
pree of concern and was
comfortable with the search
he conducted.
Investigators said they in-
terviewed six corrections
deputies who were involved
with moving and transport-
ing Dupree to the courthouse
Sept. 28. None ;of them
searched'Dupree.", ;', .
Sept. 9, Dupree was issued
prison clothes and took a
shower, according to investi-
gators.
Investigators said they
interviewed Dupree, who told
them he did not have the gun
smuggled into the county jail.
He said the gun was on him at
the time of the arrest.
Dupree said he had the
gun below his waistband
when he was initially search-
ed. He said that during his
ride to jail, he was able to get
his handcuffs switched to the
front, and pushed the gun
down further into his pants.
Dupree told investigators
that during the three weeks


he had the gun in jail, he felt it
became an "albatross" be-
cause he couldn't get rid of it.
He believed that once he got
to court, he would be released
and no one would know he
had the gun during his time
in jail.
Assumptions
In January, investigators
interviewed corrections dep-
uty Mike Suarez. Suarez told
them he was returning from
the second floor of the jail
and was asked to take Dupree
upstairs.
Suarez told investigators
, he believed Dupree was,;
searched before-he'escorted-
him. He said that Dupree was
in the jail for about an hour
before he met him.
Suarez noticed that a prop-
erty form was not filled out,
so he completed it on his
own. When investigators ask-
ed why he didn't search Du-
pree according to policy, he
thought the search had al-
ready taken place.
The administrative investi-
gation found Minchin in ne-
glect of job duties, and Suarez
in violation of general orders
and rules.
According to Lt. Chuck
Lesaltato, public information
officer, a complete review of
corrections polices and pro-


cedures concerning the secu-
rity of the jail system was con-
ducted. He said the review
found sufficient polices and
procedures in place that
should have prevented this
from occurring.
"Corrective action has
been taken to prevent a reoc-
currence of this incident,"
Lesaltato wrote in a press
release.

Jeremie Cook points to a sec-

fans moments after winning
the 189-pound state champi-
onship. Cook capped a 52-0
season by capturing his sec-
ond straight state crown.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


The names of the Venice
High state wrestling champi-
ons are on a banner on the
wall in the north gym- Jerry
Biller, Randy Day, Toby
MacDonald, Anthony
Liakakos, Phil Hall, Levi
Duyn, Shawn Rouhan and
Jeremie Cook.
Of the above, Cook is the
only one to have won more
than once. He just completed
his second straight unbeaten
season by winning Class 2A
gold at 189 pounds last week-
end in Lakeland.
There are many who
believe Cook is the greatest to
wear an Indian singlet.
"He's the most accom-
plished, but is he the best?"
noted VHS head wrestling
coach Dan Kelly. "It's subjec-
tive. I'd say Cook and Levi
Duyn are the two best."
Duyn was unbeaten state
champ in 2003. He is now at


The Citadel. He wrestled well
there his freshman and
sophomore years and has
been red-shirted this year.
Cook hasn't decided where
he'll go yet, but he does has
some attractive offers loom-
ing.
He will participate in the.
NHSCA 17th annual Senior
National Wrestling
Championships March 20-26
in Pittsburgh.
Senior state champions
and runnersup from across
the country are eligible to
wrestle in the prestigious
event.
Cook's title makes it four
straight years Venice has had
an undefeated state champ.
Not many schools can say
that.
Five in a row will be tough,
as Cook along with Brett
Nelson and Anthony Saputo
will all graduate.
Those three were the only
Indians qualifying for state
this year. Combined, they had


a record of 147-9.
"We had several who were
one match from going," Kelly
said. "We need to have them
wrestling club in the offsea-
son. They'll get better."
Wade Consul (119) and
Andrew Lopez (103) had 30
win-seasons. Doug Little
(112), Tyler Spann (130),
Trevor Goodin (135), Will
Molthop (140) and Jim
Foubister (215) all topped 20
wins. They will be the founda-
tion for next year.
Billy Fields (125) and Kyle
Keefe (152) will also be
improved.
The Venice Wrestling Club
will be the vehicle for offsea-
son grappling. Kids will travel
to tournaments from now
through the summer.
"The JV guys have been off
for, three weeks," Kelly said.
"They're chomping at the
bit."
The little guys will partici-
pate in their first tournament
this weekend in Sarasota.

Sarasota County Fairgroundsk'futreup inheair


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Robarts Arena will not be able to
keep up with the demands of a
growing community, an official said.
Rory Martin, of the Sarasota
County Fairgrounds Association
Board, said that is the reality behind
the board's plan to either build a
new arena at the fairgrounds or relo-
cate it to a site near Interstate 75.
Martin made a presentation
Thursday to the Tourist
Development Council and admitted
there are no formal plans as to what
the board wants to do, but he wants
the council to know what the board
is thinking if a decision is made in
the near future.
A developer has offered $40 mil-
lion to acquire the existing 65-acre
site and relocate the fairgrounds to a
location 2 miles south of Clark Road
on the Central Sarasota Parkway,
Martin said.
As part of the deal, a 110-acre
parcel would be donated to the fair-
grounds and 50 acres to the county
to build an interchange. Another 15
acres will go for the relocation of the
Florida National Guard Armory,
which currently sits next to the fair-
grounds.


"That would be enough for us to
build a state-of-the-art events cen-
ter which could host every event this
county would need and in a central
location," he said.
If the fairgrounds stays where it
is, it would still cost $40 million for
the events center with Robarts
Arena becoming
l the rear of the new
facility. There is dis-
cussion with a
cuso developer to build a
hotel that would
link with the events
center.
"This offers an
interesting possibil-
Patterson ity, but we are too
early in the process
to know how much of this land is
buildable," Martin said.
County Commissioner Nora
Patterson, who chairs the council,
pointed out that there are no imme-
diate plans to actually build the
,interchange.

Self supporting
Such a project was expected to
cost $40 million alone, but that esti-
mate was done in 2004. It included
land but did not take into account
the rapidly rising costs of supplies


and labor.
"I am not sure how much of the
land can be built on since much of it
is considered wetlands," Patterson
said. "Being able to build, there
would be dependent on the inter-
change being there."
The location also is at the heart of
several planned villages.
If no money can be found to pay
for the new facility, Robarts Arena
will need to be tore down and the
property would serve as an open-air
facility for the two weeks of the
county fair and a few other outdoor
events throughout the year.
"We need to know what role the
commissioners and the community
want us to play," Martin said.
"Should our events focus on the
community or commercial events?"
As it exists now, the fairgrounds
supports itself through a variety of
events throughout the year.
Expansion could open up opportu-
nities for the community as a whole
with more people coming to the
area, spending money and staying
in hotels.
Martin has tried to get the gener-
al support of county officials, but
County Administrator Jim Ley
recently documented several con-
cerns about the ability of fair-


"If we continue investing
(in Robarts Arena), it's
like putting new parts
in an nir car"!


-R


Count
Asso


ory Martin, of
the Sarasota
y Fairgrounds
ciation Board


grounds officials to handle such a
large project with no proven track
record.
Patterson said the commission-
ers have made no formal decision
on anything related to the fair-
grounds.

Using cents
There have been previous discus-
sions to use the fourth or fifth penny
of the tourism bed tax to help
finance the events center, but there
are several competing interests for
the same dollars.
Martin hopes for county support
to create a feasibility plan for the
effort, whether it is at the existing
site on Fruitville Road or the alter-


nate site south of Clark Road.
The hope for the center is to have
a 6,000-seat multipurpose facility
that would also have meeting rooms
and be built as a potential hurricane
shelter. Robarts can hold a maxi-
mum of 4,000 people and could be
used for high school graduations
and other events.
If approved this year, Martin said
the facility could be built by 2009.
"If we continue investing (in
Robarts), it's like putting new parts
in an old car," Martin said.
There are negotiations to attract
the Ringling Bros. Circus back to
Sarasota for its winter quarters.
There would also be an opportunity
to bring in the world headquarters
of Disney on Ice.
When questioned about whether
it would be better to stay in the-same
location or go elsewhere, Martin
said the existing site is a proven
location, but the 1-75 site has differ-
ent potential.
"We really haven't examined the
viability of that property at this
point," he admitted.
The council took no action relat-
ed to the presentation.

Looking for standards, access on the Osprey waterfront


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


A workshop involving
property owners of 14 acres of
land west of U.S. 41, the
Osprey Revitalization
Committee and prospective
developers will be convened
next month to advance a
year-long. effort to establish
standards for developing the
area.
The land, which extends
from the highway to the


Intracoastal Waterway, is the
remaining portion of the
community's Revitalization
Plan to be completed.
Planners have selected a
facilitator to conduct the
workshop. It will probably be
scheduled for a weekend to
enable interested residents to
attend.
The area is currently occu-
pied by the Spanish Point
Marina Grille, several house
lots, a rowing club training
facility, apartments, duplex-

es and single-family homes
between Bay Street and the
Hidden Bay condominium
development to the south.
A petition to rezone 5.5
acres introduced 13 months
ago prompted the committee
to reexamine its objectives in
revitalizing the waterfront
area. ,
From the outset, residents
had desired that all 14 acres
would be developed as a sin-
gle effort.
The proposal called for 55
condominiums at the water-
front end of the site. Each
building would be two stories
high over parking.
Eleven retail units of about
1,500 square feet, \\ith apart-
ments on a second floor,
would be built on U.S. 41, just
south of Bay Street. The con-
dominiums would be spaced
in clusters from the water's
edge to the center of the
property.


w~w~


Concerns
Questions about the status
of the restaurant have lingered
since the petition was intro-
duced in February 2005. One
of few remaining waterfront
operations in the area, it is
owned by the petitioner.
A preliminary site plan indi-
cated that the proposed devel-
opment would block access to
the restaurant, and reduce
parking space for patrons.
The committee, with assis-
tance from Sarasota County
specialists, has been reviewing
the requirements for develop-
ment. These include afford-
able housing opportunities:
coastal zone isW.s involving
buildings; height limits; archi-
tectural design; building den-
sity; and public access to the
waterfront
Concern with public access
has been overriding for the
committee, according to Jay,
Leland, vice chair.o


Last fall, several members of
the committee were told by
Senior Planner Crystal Allred,
their county advisor, that pub-
lic walkways along the water's
edge could be part of future
development through negoti-
ations with prospective devel-
opers. The scheduled work-
shop should help accomplish
the objective.
Plans for hotels, restaurants,
office buildings and other
commercial properties will,
according to Allred, require
amending the county compre-
hensive plan.

Wins and losses
Sharon Tarman, a planner
with Steven M. Houghton PE.
Inc., consulting engineers to
the petitioner, suggested at the
committee's Jan. 30 meeting
Osprey's height limit could
deter developers. Maximum
height under the Osprey
Revitalization Plan is 57 feet.


Two buildings under con-
struction in the Oaks Club pre-
serve, about A/2 miles north of
Bay Street, exceed that limit at
80 feet. They are part of a con-
dominium complex on the
.waterfront that includes two
10-story buildings. All are out-
side the plan's jurisdiction,
although they are in Osprey.
Opposition to proposals for
waterfront buildings higher
than 57 feet has consumed
Osprey residents in recent
years. Although the Oaks
Preserve fight was lost, efforts
to 'reject buildings of more
than 57 feet won at; Hidden
Bay and at Belagio. on
BlackburniPoint Roadc
One resident atth ilan. 30
meeting said, "We may have to
allow more buildings per acre
to get what we want in access
to the water from developers.
But I hope we don't have to live
with taller buildings that block
out the water."

Pedaling powers high-performance police patrols


BY RACHELEALEXANDER "What they're doing with
STAFF WRITER the cones is slow-speed
skills," Skau said. "Where


If you're a law-aoiding citi-
zen, you don't have to worry
about it.
But if you're sneaking
around at night up to no
good, you'd better watch your
back.
Because Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office deputy Kevin
Skau, or any number of other
community p lice officers,
could quietly p unce on you
on a mountain ike.
"It's a lot easier to hide than
a patrol car," said Skau refer-
ring to the bicycles that offi-
cers were training on last*
week. "I've ridden right up
behind (a person) without
them ever even knowing it. It's
easier to sneak up on some-
one on a bike."
Once a year, the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office holds
an International Police
Mountain Bike Association
course for officers who do
community surveillance.
Last week, about 13 offi-
cers from Sarasota County
and the city of North Port par-
ticipated in the program at
the Englewood Sports Com-
plex, where they were
instructed in slow-maneuver
training. ',


mere are crowds, you nave to
be able to maneuver a bike at
slow speeds without hitting
anyone."
He said being able to
manipulate a bike that way
can be far more grueling than
the 38- and 40-mile-long
rides that are part of the offi-
cers' mountain bike training.
Skau said' anyone who
wants to ride with the sheriff's
office must go through the
training and pass each leg of
the process. They must also
be IPMBA-certified to ride.
In addition to those skills,
officers must pass tests in
areas such as mounting and
dismounting, health, nutri-
tion and fitness.
Rudimentary bike skills are
also taught, such as changing
a tire, fixing a flat tire, main-
taining the bike and keeping
the brakes and chain in prop-
er, quiet working order.
Being able to inconspicu-
ously pursue someone is only
a small part of what bike
policing is all about.
Skau said police agencies
use bikes for crowd control
and surveillance at such
events as parades, festivals
and high school football

games.
More important, perhaps,
Skau said, officers on bikes
.play another role.
"It's part of the communi-
ty-policing philosophy,". he
said' "Police on bikes have


more contact with citizens. It
makes them a lot'more ap-
proachable."
He said bicycles help foster
a relationship with the com-
munity better than patrol car
surveillance does.


Although most bicyclists fall down when they're learning to ride, few must don a humbling reminder of their mistakes. North
Port Police officer J.W. Triplett took a spill at the Englewood Sports Complex during police cyclist training, and therefore had to
wear the "One Less Car" vest. Triplett passed the vest to another a short time later.

he way Julius Diasparra sees it, Friday the 13th is an incredibly
lucky day. That's because on Friday, the 13th of January, he
experienced a massive stroke while driving on U.S. 41. And
while the results could have been disastrous, he's here to tell the story of
how his future was saved.
"I was driving the car with my wife Theresa in the passenger seat when
I began losing vision on my right side," he explained. Then I couldn't hear,
speak, or use my right leg to stop the car. Theresa was able to grab the
wheel, pull into a grassy spot and call 911."
Diasparra was rushed by ambulance to Venice Regional Medical Center
(VRIvlC), where, according to interventional cardiologist Craig Reihold,
M.D., he was immediately sent for a CT scan. The test showed evidence of
a 5eyere left hemispheric stroke.


Our emergency and special procedures teams were

able to diagnose and treat Mr: Diasparra immediately,

which prevented the long-term damage and even death

that is typically associated with this type of stroke,"

-Craig Reiheld, M.D.


ice.


"A stroke of this kind has an 80 percent mortality rate," said Dr. Rei-
held. "And for the other 20 percent who survive, the prognosis is not good.
Typically, they never really recover from the paralysis."
With little time to spare. Diasparra was sent to the special procedures
room, where Dr. Reiheld and Dr. Charles Gordon,
another interventional radiologist on staff at .
VRMIC performed intra-arterial cerebral
rhrombolysis with ballon angioplasty. The
procedure involves the use of a catheter to
reach the artery with the blood clot respon-
sible for the stroke, and injecting the clot with C
an enzyme that causes it to dissolve.
Prior to undergoing the procedure,
Diasparra had partial paralysis and had lost
his ability to speak and hear. He had lim-
ited vision in his left eye only. But while
still on the table following the proce-
dure, he suddenly responded.
"The doctor asked if I could hear
him, and I was able to yell out 'yes!'" .
said Diasparra.
In addition to the return of his ,i,,
speech and hearing, his paralysis ..
subsided and his vision came back '
as well-all within three hours. '
He stayed for five nights in the
ice. hospital, but required no follow up '.
rehabilitation as his function was .,
completely restored.
"Mr. Diasparra is a success story
because of the speed with which A'

Dr. Reiheld. "He reached the
hospital very soon after the stroke
igs occurred, and our emergency and
special procedures teams were able

PREVENTING COLON
CANCER

March is National Colorectal Cancer
Awareness Month. which is a great time to
improve your understanding of colon and
rectal cancer and take steps to prevent it.
According to the American Cancer Society
(ACS), colon cancer is one of the most
preventable forms of cancer, yet only 38
percent is detected in the earliest and most
treatable stage. Here are a few things you
can do to stop this disease before it starts.
Get a Screening Test Follow the ACS
guidelines for colonoscopies and other
colon cancer screening tests, which can
help find pre-cancerous polyps. Removing
these polyps helps prevent some cancers.
Watch Your Diet and Exercise It is
important to eat plenty of fruits, vegeta-
bles, and whole grain foods and to limit
high-fat foods. Getting enough exercise is
important as well. The ACS recommends
at least 30 minutes of physical activity on
five or more days of the week.
Talk To Your Doctor About Cancer-
Preventing Medications- Aspirin appears to
prevent the growth of polyps. A drug called
Celebrex also reduces polyps for some people
whose family members tend to develop pol-
yps. But since these medicines can have side
effects, you should talk to your doctor before
taking them regularly.

Do You KNOW THE
STROKE WARNING SIGNS?

Stroke is a medical emergency that can't wait;
immediate medical attention is needed. So
you can take prompt action when stroke
strikes, the American Stroke Association
wants you to learn the warning signs:
Sudden numbness or weakness of the
face, arm or leg, especially on one side
of the body
Sudden confusion, trouble speaking
or understanding
Sudden trouble seeing in one or
both eyes
Sudden trouble walking, dizziness,
loss of balance or coordination
Sudden. severe headache with no
known cause

procedure very rapidly. This
allowed us to clear the clot
before irreversible dam-
age could be done."
Diasparra noted
that not only' was the
team efficient, but
they were also com-
passionate and car-
ing. "The people
at the hospital
were the best," he
said. "Every minute
I was in there I felt
calm and even enjoyed
my stay because they were
all so caring.
He added, "If I ever experi-

Haste makes waste.
While editing Joel Foster's
wonderful story about Venice,
librarian MaryWaddell, I used
my computer's "find and
replace" feature to change
her first name to her last
name throughout the story,
in keeping with the Venice
Gondolier Sun's style. All
instances of the word Mary
were changed, including
those in a quote by Sarasota
County Head Librarian Nancy
Pike, who most certainly
would never refer to Waddell
as "Waddell." The correct
quotation appears below. I
apologize for the error.
"I worked with Mary for 10
years," Pike said. "She is a rare
person. She was the first per-
son I thought of when con-
sidering my replacement as
head librarian; I could always
depend on her doing the
right thing regardless of the
situation, be it an emergency
ort dealing with the needs of
patrons. Shejirst-ifistfictively
knew what to do, and always
displayed good common
sense. And, Mary really lis-
tens to people, and people
respond to being with some-
one who obviously cares
about whatever problem they
have come to her with; and,
they go away happy to have
had the time to have their
say, and usually with a solu-
tion in hand. That's so im-
portant in dealing with the
public, and Mary made
everyone, young or old, staff
or,,,patron, feel, good about
being in the Venice Library."
Putting newspaper style
aside one more time, let me
add my good wishes to
"Mary" on her retirement. I
sincerely hope her replace-
ment will be able to do every-
thing Mary did and as well
as she did it, including baking
those famous, chocolate chip
cookies.

"Man of La Mancha" opens
at The Players Theatre, 838
North Tamiami Trail, Sara-
sota, Thursday, Feb. 23. It will
run through March 12.
The show that introduced
the world to the hit song
"The Impossible Dream" was
the smash of the 1965
Broadway season. The story
begins in a Spanish prison
where Miguel de Cervantes
awaits his trial before the
Spanish Inquisition. Finding
himself at the mercy of his
fellow inmates and forced to
appear before "the governor,"
Cervantes acts out his in-
complete novel "Don Quix-
ote." All are deeply moved by
his tale and the story con-
cludes with the inspiring
"Impossible Dream."
Tickets are $21 for adults
and $11 for students. There
are matinees at 2 p.m. Feb. 26,

BY KIM COOL

Too soon, it was our last
full day in Bali.
Once again, it seemed as
though the gods were crying.
It was raining.
Gods are important in Bali,
where most of die people are
Hindu.
Each morning, the women-
make offerings to the gods
and then place them on
home altars, steps leading
into stores and restaurants
and even along the streets.
NMost of the offerings consist
of beans, legumes, tiny flow-
ers, and perhaps a bit of rice
or other seeds artfully placed
gi sq r,-. corners woven
most often from coconut
fronds. The Balinese usually
wrap stone carvings of many
of the gods with black and
white checked fabric, which
symbolizes good and evil,
tying the fabric in place with
gold silk sashes. For major
festivals, weddings and fun-
erals, the Balinese make dec-
orative arches and swaying
bamboo poles, adorning
them with intricately woven
coconut fronds. Twisting and
turning and folding strips of
the fronds, the women create
lacy decorations atop the
poles, which are then set out
to mark the way, sometimes,
along the street or, some-
times, along the path leading
to the place where the wed-
ding, funeral or other special
event (generally a religious
ceremony) will occur.
At the Sheraton Laguna at
Nusa Dua. where we staved
for the Tastff6our da.s and
nights in Bali, we had our
own small offering just out-
side our room. It was replac-
ed daily.
Vithin our room, we had
a bowl of fruit similar to
what we had been given at
each of the other hotels in
Bali. Snake fruit remains my
favorite of the many fruits we
have tasted there over the
years. Shaped like a plum. the
solid, white-fleshed fruit is
covered with plum-colored
skin that is patterned like that
of a snake. The taste is unlike
any other fruit I know al-
though there is a hint of a
citrus-like tang. Basically it
tastes like snake fruit.
Fortunately, snake fruit
was part of the breakfast buf-
fet each day.
As we headed down to
breakfast we picked up an
umbrella from the rack by
the door, and headed to the
Cafe Lagoon where we put
the umbrella in its rack.
The buffet contained the
usual American fare of bacon
and eggs as well as the rice
and fish preferred by the
Japanese and plenty of
Balinese fruits and juices. As
I had in Bangkok, I continued
to mix mango and other

juices to create my owQ. spe-
cial blend each morning.
There also was a bread buffet,
which featured cinnamon
buns and various pastries as
well as homemade breads,
which could be. toasted in


one of the toasters on the
end of the counter.
While the rain continued
to fall from the sky, we en-
joyed our breakfast and de-
cided that, rain or not, we
would spend the day near


selves. The naturalized shape
made it fun to swim laps in a
variety of directions and the
area with the jets and founL-
tain features offered a fun
play area. So did a basketball
hoop in one area of the pool.


Dressed all in silk, a young Balinese lady walks along a hotel path to her wedding in the hotel's
ceremonial bale near the Indian Ocean beach.


Wedding preparations included the installation of decorative
bamboo arches, white-covered chairs for guests and a path of
flower petals for the bride and groom to walk on as they made
their way to the altar.


the pool. The bales (ba-lees)
were just the place to pass the
time outside yet under cover.
After breakfast, we used
another umbrella to return to
our room to change into our
swim suits and sarongs and
pick up some reading materi-
als.
Since there were so few
guests, finding an empty bale
was easy. We picked one that
offered a good.view of the
Indian Ocean, the pool and
the grounds, climbed aboard
and settled in against the tri-
angular backrest pillows.
There was a break in the
rain and we left our things in
the bale to take what might
have been our last dip in the
hotel pool. There were so few
guests, that we had the enor-
mous pool nearly to our-


Three other guests were en-
joying that as we swam back
and forth before heading
back to the bale to catch a
bite of lunch.
Wrapped in our towels, we
checked out the menu and
ordered cheeseburgers and
fries, a big switch from our
usual order of Nasi Goreng
(fried rice). The waiter re-
turned about 15 minutes later
with our order and a bottle of
ketchup for our fries. It was
nearly 1:30 in the afternoon.:
We had delayed lunch in a
vain attempt to delay the pas-
sage of time on our last day
in Bali. It didn't work.
We nibbled our sandwich-
es slowly but that didn't work
either. The hands on the clock
continued to advance.
And then something hap-


opened that changed all that.
Something was happening
over near the large bale with
the red cushions. Men were
arriving with their arms
loaded with what appeared
to be decorated bamboo
poles and other floral items.
We had been "hanging out"
in our bale so long that we
had decided to give up trying
to stop. the clock and the
rain and return to our rooms
to finish our packing.
So much for that idea.
Instead we decided to "hang
out" a while longer and see
what was happening. We got
out our cameras and started
shooting pictures as the
men began to construct a
fanciful archway and other
men arrived to place rows of
chairs outside the bale and to
cover them with white silk-
like slipcovers adorned with
giant golden bows at the
back.
Not able to stand the sus-
pense, I climbed down from
my perch and Walked over
the scene of the action to
find out what was going on
and learned that they were
preparing for a wedding.
"We have to have this done
by four," one of the men said.
Our packing could wait.
After three trips to Bali, we
finally were going to be able
to see, or at least to eaves-
drop, on a real Balinese wed-
ding. The packing could wait.
As we watched, the deco-
rations grew more fanciful
until finally someone started
placing fresh frangi-pangi
blossoms on the red carpet
leading beneath the fancy
archway and up three steps to
the ceremonial bale. One
man started sweeping up
around the edges and it
appeared they had indeed
finished before four but then
the rains came and they
.moved the fancy chairs up
into the bale. It seemed as
though the wedding was
delayed.
Then someone arrived
with pots of flowering shrubs
and placed those along the -,
edges of the archway. Per-
haps the decorating was still
,not done. We continued to
watch and td take photos
and when a sign appeared, I
ventured forth again, to read
it Salvatore & Budiani,
Dec. 2, 2005.
Asking the man who
seemed to be in charge of the
arrangements, I learned that

BALI from Page 18


Mr. Salvatore was from Italy
and that he was marrying
Miss Budiani who was Bali-
nese. He was Catholic and
she was Hindu and the
marriage would combine ele-
ments of both their religions
if it ever happened.
The sky was growing dark-
er. The rains continued off
and on.
. Hotel employees put pro-
tective coverings over the sur-
rounding bales, which, had
been vacated by guests who


were more interested in get-
ting out of the rain than to
watch strangers get married.
Cameras in hand, Heidi
and I were determined to
stick it out, hoping enough
daylight would last so that
we couldd get pictures. We
were, too far away to use a
flash and we didn't want to
disrupt the wedding, only to
watch it from out little perch.
Finally, the rain stopped
and a group of people
appeared. They chatted a bit


and then took their seats in
the decorated chairs, which
had been replaced outside
the big bale. Then a man
appeared, dressed in sort of
a white sarong and a decor-
ative navy jacket with brass
buttons and trim. He had
something wrapped around
his head. He was the groom
and he charted with several
guests while we continued to
wonder what the bride
would wear and when she
might appear. Some other

ladies, dressed in fine Bali--
nese sarongs appeared and
we wondered who they
might be. Two were dressed
alike and they took up places
near the entrance to the
archway bridesmaids per-
haps?
It was nearing 6 p.m. but
there still was some daylight
when the bride finally arrived,
wearing an outfit all of silk.
A floor-length silken sarong
and a short-sleeved silk
blouse. On her head she
wore a tall headdress that
matched the silk of her outfit.
She was accompanied by
about four people, possibly
her parents arid two sisters
or additional wedding atten-
dants.
The groom had moved up
the steps and into the bale
and already there with him
were two men, one a Cath-
olic priest and one a Hindu
priest.
We were close enough to
witness the ceremony but
not close enough to hear it.
As we watched, it seemed as
though the oral pan of the
ceremony was short. What
did take a long time was the
signing of several documents
or several pages of one docu-
ment. And then, the groom:
kissed the bride and they
exited the bale together
through the archway. After
mingling with their guests
near the bale, the entire:
group moved off to another
part of the hotel where they
had their wedding reception.
We headed back to our
room to dress for our own
dinner, accidentally walking
past the site of the reception'
oni the way back to the Cafe
Lagoon where we had our
last helping of Urab and
Nasi Goreng with shrimp.
After dinner' we put the

HUMOR COLUMNIST

This classic Dave Barry
column was originally pub-
lished'Sept. 18, 1994.

Today's topic is: Practical
dog ownership.
Millions of Americans own
dogs because they are good-
natured, simple and easily
amused. I am referring here
to the Americans. The dogs
are not exactly Mensa mem-
bers, either, but they definite-
ly make better pets than trop-
ical fish.
Suppose, for example, that
you're! home alone, and you
start choking on a piece of
takeout Chinese food, and
you collapse to the floor, dy-
ing. A tropical fish is not going
to alertly rush over to the
phone, knock the receiver off
the hook, dial 911 with its
nose and bark excitedly into
the mouthpiece until the
operator sends paramedics.
Of course, a dog is not going
to do' this, either. A dog is
going to wander over and lick
the soy sauce off your increas-
ingly blue face. But while it's
doing this, it will be thinking
loyal thoughts about you.
So we can see that there
are, major benefits to dog'
ownership. But before you


make "man's best friend" part
of your family, you need to
know the Three Key Prin-
ciples of Practical Dog
Ownership:
1. REMEMBER YOUR
SAFETY PRIORITIES WHEN
DRIVINGWITH A DOG.
Dogs LOVE to go for rides.
A dog will happily get into any
vehicle going anywhere. It is
not mere coincidence that
the first animal in space was a
dog. It went up in a Russian
satellite that was clearly never
going to come back down,
but the Russians didn't have
to ask it twice. (The dog, not
the satellite.) They just open-
ed the satellite door, and the
dog bounded enthusiastically
inside and blasted into space
and spent 189 consecutive
hours with its nose pressed
against the porthole, barking
violently at cosmic rays, until
finally the Russians couldn't
stand it any more and turned
off the radio receiver.
So your dog will definitely
want to go places in your car.
But you must be careful when
driving with a dog. Consider
the following true anecdote
involving a Southgate, Mich.,
woman whom I will identify
here only as Ann because she
will probably want to remain
anonymous after she kills her
husband, Stephen, for writing
in to tell me about this anec-
dote.
Ann was driving in her
minivan with a schnauzer
whom I will identify here only
as Bobbie, when Bobbie start-
ed to throw up on the passen-
ger seat. Dogs throw up a lot.
It's a survival instinct that
they inherited from their rela-
tives, wolves, which swallow


their prey in the field, then
return to the den and regurgi-
tate for their young;'this caus-
es the young to be so grossed
out that they leave the den
and get jobs.. (This technique
can also be adapted by
human parents, according to
Dr. Joyce Brothers' best-sell-
ing book, "Ralph on Your
Kids.")
Anyway, when Bobbie
started barfing, Ann wisely
took her eyes off the road and
reached over to shove Bobbie
off the seat. Thanks to Ann's
quick thinking, disaster was
avoided, except for the fact,
that her minivan swerved
across the road and smashed
into a parked car, resulting in
over $1,000 worth of damage.
But the important thing is
that the seat was fine. '"Above
all,' protect the seat" is the No.
1 rule of driving with a dog.
2. THERE IS A RIGHT WAY
AND A WRONG WAY TO
BREAK OFF A PIECE OF BIS-
CUIT FORYOUR DOG.
Consider what happened
to Richard Dawson of Bord-
entown, N.J., whose story was
brought to my attention by
alert reader Richard Lip-
schultz. Dawson was walking
his dog, Lou, and decided to
give Lou a piece of the large
dog biscuit in his (Dawson's)
jacket pocket. Rather than go
to all the trouble of taking the
whole biscuit out, Dawson
decide to break off a piece by
simply punching the biscuit
while it was still in his pocket.
The first punch failed to do
the job, so Dawson punched
the biscuit harder, the result
being in Dawson's own
words "I broke my rib."
The lesson here, obviously,


cial aid information but also
helps them plan step-by-step
for their future."
Most students in Florida
receive some kind of financial
assistance. Students should
first apply for federal financial
aid by completing the Free
Application for Federal Stu-
dent Aid (FAFSA). Students
applying for state aid should
complete the Florida Finan-
cial Aid Application (FFAA).
Both of these forms can be
found through the FACTS.org
Web site.
Financial aid for Florida
students is available in both.

control

is that you need to really'
whack your biscuit. This is
precisely why many experi-
enced dog-owners carry
hammers.
3. USE GOOD JUDGMENT
WHEN DISCIPLINING DOGS
I have here an article, sent
in by many readers, from the
Rocky Mountain News in
Colorado, headlined, WO-
MAN ACCIDENTALLY
SHOOTS HERSELF, and sub-
headlined, "Owner of 10 dogs
nicks finger with handgun
she routinely fired at ceiling
to stop pets from fighting."
The article states that the
woman used a .25-caliber
handgun to control her dogs;
she told police that she fired it
.into the ceiling when the dogs
got into a fight.
As a dog owner and dog
lover, I was shocked to learn
that in a so-called humane
society, a person would even
THINK of attempting to con-
trol10 dogs with a gun of such
small caliber. Use your heads,
dog owners! For five or more
dogs, experts recommend at
LEAST a .357 magnum,
unless the dogs are Labrador
retrievers, in which case you
need nuclear weapons. In
this, as in every other area of
dog ownership, the key is
plain old "common sense,"
which is why I want to leave
all of you dog-owners out
there, both novices and veter-
ans, with this thought: "The
Biscuit Whackers" would be
an excellent name for a ban

Merit-based financial aid in-
cludes the Florida Lottery-
funded Bright Futures Schol-
arships.
Last year 130,597 students
received Bright Futures schol-
arships.
The deadline for applying
for state-funded financial aid
programs, including Bright
Futures via the FFAA, is near.
Students who do not apply
for Bright Futures Schol-
arships during their last year
in high school forfeit all future
eligibility for this substantial
financial assistance.
Florida's largest need-bas-


ed program is the Florida
Student Assistance Grant
(FSAG), which was awarded
to 94,810 students during the
2004-2005 year. Other need-
based aid is available.
For comprehensive infor-
mation about available finan-
cial aid, students and their
parents should visit

ding day planning. These
morning jaunts with a hand-
ful of running buddies are all
about reconnecting with
nature, fine tuning my spiri-
tuality and ranting about the
latest marriage planning
problem.
Finding an affordable,
vegan caterer to cook for a
wedding party of 75-100 peo-
ple has proven next to impos-
sible. Elegance and afford-
ability isn't too much to ask, is
it?
You put leg of lamb on a
vegan's menu?
"Yes, but it's very good."
It's the flesh of a baby
sheep. And over here, you've
included regular pizzas. We
asked for something pizza-
like.
"They're personal pizzas.

they're small. It's the in-thing

dings."
When we said our $10 a
head goal was flexible, your
$60 wasn't what we had in
mind.
"Have you tried my puff
pastry sausage rolls?"
These types of conversa-
tions are what drive me to run
20 miles on a Friday morning
before work. People say run-
ning a marathon's 26.2 miles
as fast as you can is insane,
while I say offering a vegan
bride leg of lamb, pizza and
sausage pastries on her wed-
ding day for six times more
than you hoped to pay is
insane.
Luckily, a caterer who
actually listened to myself
and The Fianc6e has stepped
up to the plate. The big day is
just two months away and it
looks as if all the tumblers are
falling into place.

this point, running hard will
do little more other than
make you tired on race day.
I'll keep the pace a minute or
more slower than usual, only
run three times and keep the
mileage at 3-4 on each run.
Hydrate Galloway sug-
gests drinking 4-6 ounces of
water for every waking hour
the two days before running.
Try to avoid drinks with lots of
sugar (this includes fruit
juices), caffeine and alcohol,
because each substance con-
tributes to dehydration.
Salt Avoid excessive
salt, another cause of dehy-
dration.,
Eat Spread your meals
out all day long the two days
before, and stick with the
. good carbohydrates and stay
away from fatty foods. Large,
heavy meals are a bad idea.
Remember that you'll be run-
ning 26 miles, and your bath-

H ealthcare would be a lot
simpler if, instead of conduct-
ing dozens of uncomfortable tests,
doctors could just look at 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 technol-
ogy in modern medicine, right in
your own backyard. Even more
importantly, health issues can be
diagnosed earlier and more accu-
rately-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.

Couple cooks with heart


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER


Love is in the air every day
of the year at Food is Love.
"I love food," TodWhitaker
said. "I've always been in the
food business. I love making
people happy."
That comes from the love,
comfort and food he and wife
Rana received from their fam-
ily members.
In particular, it was one of
Tod's grandmothers who set
the course. Tod said that
when you think ,of a grand-
mother, his was typical.
And when she' served up a
family meal, she served it up
big.
"There was always two
meats and 12 vegetables," he
said. "To her, food is love."
The Whitakers' restaurant
opened last October in the
Olde Village Publix plaza at
the corner of Dearborn Street
and Indiana Avenue. The cou-
ple also operates a catering
business.
Tod holds a culinary arts
degree from fie Art Institute
of Atlanta; h was formerly
the chef at Jacaranda West
Country Club. Rana has a
background in special events,
hosting affairs from off-road
driving clinics to black-tie
galas.
Repeat business
The com nation of skills
has been a success so far.
CustomeTs do return,
some every day.
Like Mite Boeschen of
Venice, who's been driving a
UPS delivery truck in Engle-
wood 18 yekrs.
"Excellent. Very good.
Haven't had a bad meal yet.
The service is excellent,"
Boeschen said on a recent

stop at the name. Photos of
the Whitakers, their daugh-
ters, Roux, 2; and Piper, 8
months old; and other family
members and friends are
exhibited in black and white
on warm, rose-colored walls.
Names on the menu
The appreciation of family,
friends and regular cus-
tomers is also extended to the
menu, which features peo-
ple's names.
Burtville Biscuits with
homemade gravy, the Heart-
ache (two pancakes, two eggs,
Love Spuds, choice of meat)
or Bananas Foster Cakes (ba-
nanas sauteed in butter,
brown sugar, finished with a
shot of rumn over pancakes)


are a few of the breakfast spe-
cialties.
Joy Love Club, a lunch
item, is a double-decker
sandwich with ham, turkey,
cheddar cheese, lettuce, to-
mato and mayonnaise on
white bread.
The Susie Dog, named af-
ter a local business owner,
was a special, but has become
a regular item. It's a hot dog
stuffed with American
cheese, wrapped with bacon,
then deep fried.
Omelettes, quiches, soups
and salads, all made on the
premises, also grace the
menu.
The Popeye Salad is a slight
variation from a spinach sal-
ad with blue cheese dressing.
The Mei Din is Whitaker's
affectionate term for a salad
he named after a culinary
school classmate.
"I asked him what his
name was, he told me 'Mei
Din,' "Whitaker said. "When I
asked him what that meant,
he said it means 'made in'

BALI r.'n', P.... 1R


for the night. In the morning
we would have a leisurely
breakfast, sit by the pool
one last time for about 45
minutes and then around
noon, depart for the airport
and our 45-hour journey
back to Venice, via Bangkok,
Osaka and Chicago.
That trip could be a whole
other story as Thai Airlines
canceled our particular flight
to the U.S. three days earlier
but United Airlines found
two first class seats for us


and we were able to actually
sleep on the flight from
Osaka to Chicago, and return
to the states on less flights
than originally scheduled so
it all worked out just fine.
Will we return to Bali? In
a heartbeat. The Balinese
people are some of the kind-
est and nicest people on
earth. Despite their beaten
up tourist-based economy,
they continue to smile and
to build new hotels and re-
novate existing ones for


when the tourists return, as
they will.
If you plan to go, do your
homework online or at the
library and make your res-
ervations with a travel pro-
fessional who has been there.
This completes what
became a seven-part series on
two weeks in Bali.

At the Osaka Airport, the first class lounge offers a quiet place to wait for several hours between
flights.


Stone carvings are often dressed as this one is with black and white fabric skirts and gold cloth.
Hibiscus blossoms often are added behind an ear.
