Disclosure of a covert plan to reduce the number
of low-income units leads the Venice Housing
Authority executive director to leave more than a
month earlier than his planned departure date.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


At 3 a.m. Wednesday Ven-
ice Housing Authority Exec-
utive Director Peter Lopez
was in his office packing up
personal belongings.
A few hours later newspa-
pers hit the street reporting
Lopez suggested using evic-
tions as part of a plan to
reduce the number of low-
income units at Grove Terrace
Apartments.
"I thought it might be in
the best interest of the hous-
ing authority (to leave now),"
said Lopez, who had previ-
ously announced his resigna-
tion effective March 31.
Lopez, 52, declined to say
anything more about his
decision to leave earlier.
According to his original res-
ignation letter, he planned to
seek a higher-paying job.


He was executive director
of VHA for just more than two
years after working as director
of finance at Fort Myers
Housing Authority for two
years.

Speed table plan hits a bump


When the Sarasota County
commissioners agreed to
start charging for a percent-
age of the costs of speed
tables, they thought theywere
being fair.
The commissioners cited
the example of Gondola
Drive, where the county's
Traffic Advisory Council said
residents wanted nine such
speed tables more com-
monly referred to as speed
bumps including one on a
h to dead end street.
Saying that such a propos-
al was taking advantage of the
county's generosity, the board
agreed in late January to
mmell charge neighborhoods 25
enarens percent of the cost.
arens Fast forward to Tuesday
iashtel afternoon during the public
comment portion of the com-
missioners regular meeting at
the Robert L. Anderson
Administration Center. More
....5A than 50 residents of Jaca-
9B randa West who live along


Gondola Drive expressed
their anger and frustration
with the board's decision and
the impact it will have on
their neighborhood.
While everyone wanted to
speak, only a dozen or so
actually shared their
thoughts.
Cynthia Crowe of the
Jacaranda West Homeowners
Association said that while
the speed limit on Gondola
Drive is 25 mph, more than
2,000 vehicles use the street
each day, all speeding.
"It is an insult to the tax-
paying public asking for safe-
ty improvements to have
them pay," Crowe said. "It is
not an elaborate request."
She added that the home-
owners followed the county
procedure to the get the
speed tables and that there
was no price on what was
agreed to.
"We pays taxes, and it is
your job to control the traf-
fic," said North Gondola
Drive resident John Harrison.


No promises
The homeowners rejected
the idea of paying for the
speed tables, but they are also
upset because they learned
that a plan to put a sidewalk
on Gondola was still being
considered.
A public hearing is set for
March 21 to discuss putting a
sidewalk through Jacaranda
West to link to Garden Ele-
mentary School, with Gon-
dola Drive as one option.
Several of the residents
accused commissioner Shan-
non Staub of not being hon-
est with them about the
.speed tables or the sidewalks.
"Such a sidewalk would
have a permanent and dam-
aging effect on us," Crowe
said.
Staub said she is only one
commissioner and cannot
guarantee any project, but
believes an alternate route is
being planned.
"I never made such prom-
ises," Staub said.

Bay Point water project

moving forward


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Construction could begin
by late March on a water dis-
tribution system connected
to 495 homes in the Bay Point
neighborhood of Nokomis.
A contract for $2,075,212
was issued Tuesday by the
Sarasota Board of County
Commissioners for the pro-
ject.
A Nokomis official describ-
ed the contract as "a wonder-
ful first step" in the seemingly
endless effort to hook up
Nokomis and Laurel home-
owners to county water lines.
"The commissioners mov-
ed to approve the bid because
it was the closest to their bud-
get," he added.
At the same time, the com-
missioners amended the
Fiscal Year 2006 budget by
appropriating $525,000 in the
Utility System account for the
Bay Point project.
Two weeks earlier, the


commissioners delayed the
Shore Road neighborhood
project for 60 days to allow
further study of water-line
construction throughout the
county. Swiftly escalating
costs in Nokomis, Laurel and
Sarasota have prompted a
review of the situation.
A public workshop sched-
uled by the commissioners
for next month will examine
the increased costs home-
owners face to hook up to
central water lines.
The original estimated cost
to connect 15,000 homes to
the Philippi Creek Septic Sys-
tem Replacement Program
was $121 million. The most
recent estimate was $157 mil-
lion. The meeting will consid-
er the recommendations of
county utility officials for rate
increases or subsidies to
poorer residents to pay the
higher costs.

Sarasota County


targets tourism

From the Feb. 19, 1997, Venice Gondolier Sun.,


BY STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County commis-
sioners will keep up the
county's commitment to
tourist advertising Tuesday.
In November, the board
approved a 1-percent in-
crease to the county's tax on
short-term vacation rentals,
and commissioners also de-
voted 30 percent of the ad-


ditional revenue to tourist
advertising.
Commissioners followed
up on those actions Tuesday
and voted to raise the adver-
tising budget by $146,000,
bringing the total budget to
$950,000.
The tourist advertising is
administered by the Sarasota
County Convention and Vis-
itors Bureau, and its director,
Larry Marthaler, updated

Englewood redevelopment area getting attention


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Several Sarasota County
commissioners could be
spotted roaming around Old
Englewood during their lunch
break Tuesday afternoon.
The visit was part of an
informal tour for board
members who wanted to get
a better look at the goings-on
in the downtown business
district and to see where the
county's money is going
for several key land pur-
chases.
The highlight of the trip
was a cluster of four proper-
ties at Cherokee and Green
streets, which includes 225
feet of bayfront property and
two homes. Commission
Chair David Mills said he was
impressed with the changes
that have occurred in the
downtown area in recent
years.
"We are making a tremen-
dous difference there," Mills
said.
The tour served several
purposes, as the commission-
ers spent much of their day
hearing about the present
and future of the Englewood
Community Redevelopment
Agency.
It began with a presenta-
tion by CRA Advisory Board
Chair Mary Ellen Diez up-
dating the latest progress the
board has made in revitaliz-
ing not only the downtown
area, but the community as a
whole.


Atmosphere
The CRA consists of 4,400
acres, stretching from the
Charlotte County line to the
south, the Paul Morris In-
dustrial Park to the east,
Forked Creek to the north
and a large portion of Man-
asota Key to the west.
Tax money generated
within the CRA boundaries
above a base level' is redirect-
ed and spent within the com-
munity to promote growth
and attract businesses.
Diez suggested the com-
missioners create a financial
incentive program to attract
businesses to the area, but
the board was leery of such
a concept. She cited the low
value of property there and
the need to create a draw for
businesses to come to the'
area. There is a high vacancy
rate there, with several other
businesses on the brink of
leaving.
There are currently eight
retail units for sale, with others
considering going up for sale.
The upside is that there is an
interest from businesses, that
want to move to West Dear-
born Street.
Commissioner Paul Merc-
ier said the CRA needs to
create an atmosphere of suc-
cess.
"There is going to be an
evolution and transition
through this process," Merc-
ier added. "Don't get hung
up on failures."
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton said he did not want to


force feed the market and
hoped any action is taken
after an ongoing market
analysis of the area is com-
pleted.
"When a CRA begins to
generate money, we look to
spend it and I don't believe
this is the right place," Thax-
ton added.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson agreed, saying she
had witnessed firsthand in
the city of Sarasota how such
incentives can create more
problems than they solve.
She cited the creation of
government-led initiatives for
dealing with stormwater and
parking as "pretty good sub-
sidies."
"We could mitigate impact
fees, but it has to be carefully
done," Patterson added.
Left hanging
Commissioner Shannon
Staub said that once the
stormwater issue is address-
ed, new businesses will start
building quickly.
"Once we see something
come out of the ground, I
think that will make a big
difference," she said.
As the advisory board and
county commissioners work
to update the CRA master
plan, Staub said it will put
the entire effort into focus
and offers a big opportunity
to bond some of the CRA
money to make big things
happen quickly.
"There is a mrnarket there,"
she added. "It is very focused

on water and the arts
community. ... I think we
should focus on buying
land, because we are never
going to get it as cheap as we
are going to get it now."
Staub even went so far as


to apologize for letting the
CRA fall, by the wayside of
county priorities.
"I've left you hanging out
there," she said. '"A lot of
energy is being created and
we will see progress."


Diez said she appreciated
the recent effort by the coun-
ty to offer a more focused
level of support.

GCCFV awards $1.2 million in approved grants


The largest grant nearly $1 million goes to
Sarasota Conservation Foundation to help ensure
permanent public access to a waterfront preserve.


STAFF REPORT

Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice's board
of directors approved a chal-
lenge grant of $995,044 to
Sarasota Conservation Foun-
dation.
The capital grant was part
of $1.2 million in grants to
nonprofit organizations ap-
proved by the board at its
meeting Tuesday.
Sarasota Conservation
Foundation will use the funds
awarded to conserve, renovate
and upgrade five historically
important buildings on the
waterfront site for 'public
access and use.
The organization's plans
for the structures, which in-
clude a Colonial Revival man-
sion, a carriage house and
three Cracker-style cottages,
call for a natural history mu-
seum, event space, offices for
nonprofit organizations and
studio space for environ-
mental artists. An upgraded
pier and boathouse will pro-
vide public water access to
Little Sarasota Bay.
The grant was made out-,
side the foundation's regular
cycle of capital grantmaking in
response to the urgent need to
conserve coastal resources
and the narrow time frame
for Sarasota Conservation
Foundation to fully utilize
state funding.
"The foundation board
recognized that this is a
once-in-a-lifetime opportun-
ity to secure some of our
community's vital natural
and historical resources," said
Teri A. Hansen, GCCFV presi-
dent and CEO, in a press
release.
Last year, bolstered by a


grant from Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation, Sarasota
Conservation Foundation
secured a
matching I
grant of $6.6
million from
the Florida $
Communities
Trust for the
purchase of
the land that
will become
Bay Preserve Hansen
at Osprey.
More grants
Animal Rescue Coalition
will receive a $17,450 match-
ing grant to launch its
Adoption Trail initiative, a
comprehensive campaign to
promote 'adoption of home-.
less dogs and cats through-
out Sarasota and Manatee
counties. The campaign will
include development of a
brochure and map detailing
shelters and rescue organi-
zations from Englewood to
Palmetto with pets available
for adoption.
The Alzheimer's Associa-
tion, Florida Gulf Coast
Chapter, will receive a grant
of $3,000 to help it imple-
ment an art therapy and
activity program for people
living with Alzheimer's dis-
ease or a related disorder in
the foundation's service area.
The Memories in the Making
art therapy program is de-
signed to help individuals
with diminished communi-
cation skills express them-
selves through the creation
of art.
The Southwest Florida
Chapter of the American Red
Cross was awarded a $5,600
grant for CPR outreach and


education in southern Sara-
sota County.
Circus Sarasota will re-
ceive $4,000 in matching
grant funds to help it bring
the circus to Laurel Nokomis
School. Circus Sarasota will
offer students a hands-on
after-school program.
Junior Achievement of
West Central Florida was
awarded a $15,000 challenge
grant to support its efforts to
expose more teachers in
local schools to its programs
and to develop business
relationships in southern
Sarasota County to build its
volunteer base and organize
fundraisers.
Lemon Bay Playhouse
won a grant of $9,556 to hire
a part-time business man-
ager to coordinate playhouse
operations, volunteers and
communications.
Mote Marine Laboratory
was awarded a $6,500 grant
for development and distri-
bution of educational mater-
ials to inform the public about
lighting problems that affect
sea turtles along Venice's
coastline.
The Venice Youth Boating
Association was awarded a
grant of $7,000 to purchase
four boats to expand its in-
structional sailing programs
for youth in Venice and sur-
rounding communities.
Among several other grants
approved Tuesday was an
award of up to $1,500 to the
Venice Area Historical Soci-
ety to cosponsor a presenta-
tion this spring by architect,
Charles D. Warren, an expert'
on the legacy of pioneering
urban planner John Nolen.
Nolen designed the city of
Venice, and his vision is
reflected today in the style of
city planning known as New
Urbanism.
Gulf Coast! Community
Foundation of Venice is the


largest community founda-
tion in Florida with assets of
more than $205 million. The
foundation was founded in


late 1995 through the sale of
Venice Hospital and has
awarded more than $57 mil-
lion in grants in the areas of


arts and culture, health and
human services, education,
civic affairs, and the environ-
ment.

Resident questions role in Kennedy assassination probe


This is the second of a two-
part series about Harold "Skip"
Rydberg's participation in the
investigation of the assassination
of President John F. Kennedy.
BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER
The man who did the
drawings of President John E.
Kennedy's bullet wounds for
the Warren Commission has
mixed feelings today about his
work in 1964.
"I was confident with what
I could accomplish at the
time," North Port resident
Harold "Skip" Rydberg, 65,
said.
But he still has questions
about why he was chosen
for the work and about the
small amount of information
he was given to work with.
'A normal homicide would
not be handled in this way,"
he said. 'All homicides would,
be given the utmost invest-
igation before any path or
weapon was ever introduced."
Rydberg believes the au-
topsy and his work were a
part of an investigation the
U.S. government and military
"mismanaged."
Then 21, he was the art
director and department
head of the Medical Illus-
tration School at the Naval
Medical Center in Bethesda,
Md., when the president's
body arrived at the facility.
With little experience as a
medical illustrator, Rydberg
had only two days in March
of 1964 to draw the presi-
dent's neck and head
wounds, on "secret verbal,
orders" from Navy Comman-
der John Stover. The Warren
Commission used these illus-
trations to support its "lone
gunman" theory.
A week after finishing the
drawings, Rydberg received a
commendation for his work.
The commendation letter,
written by Stover on March
27, 1964, stated: "During the
period 12 to 15 March, 1964,


you were called upon to pre-
pare, on extremely short
notice, highly technical med-
ical illustrations, using only
verbal directions given you by
officers of this command."
The letter continues to
state the drawings were used
in a presentation before "a
very high-level agency of the
United States Government."
"You notice it did not say
directly it was for President
Kennedy or the Warren Com-
mission," Rydberg said.
In 1968, as he was leaving
the Navy, Rydberg asked Dr.
James Humes and Dr. Thorn-
ton Boswell, the doctors for
whom the drawings had
been prepared, for letters of
recommendations.
Humes wrote in his letter:
"I was most favorably im-
pressed with all your artwork
which was of tremendous
value to me. In particular the
drawings which you prepared
for me depicting the wounds
of our late President John E
Kennedy, were of the greatest
assistance in my testimony
before the Warren Commis-
sion."
However, Boswell only
wrote that he felt uneasy to
write about his work, and de-
ferred the recommendation
to Humes.
"How is someone supposed
to feel getting mixed letters
like this?" Rydberg said.
Over the years, Rydberg
said, he became increasing-
ly skeptical of the methods
and accuracy of his work.
Events after he drew the
illustrations only added to
his concerns.
During the next 42 years,
Rydberg followed the inves-
tigations that took place after
the Warren Commission.
When new information was
released, he said, he realized
his drawings wefe inaccurate.
Rydberg wrote many let-
ters asking to see the autopsy
photos and X-rays in order to
redraw his illustrations. It
took seven years before he

got a response, and it wasn't
what he expected.
In February 1978, he re-
ceived a letter from Harold T.
Pinkett, acting director of
the Civil Archives Division of
the General Services Admin-
istration. The letter stated
the Kennedy family gave the
records back to the govern-
ment with strict limitations
on who could see them.
Pinkett wrote that only
people approved by a com-
mittee of Congress, a presi-
dential commission or any
other official agency of the


federal government could
have access. He further stat-
ed any recognized experts in
pathology or related areas of
science whose applications
were approved by a "Ken-
nedy family representative"
could have access.
Rydberg then wrote to
Burke Marshall, attorney for
the Kennedy family, seeking
access to the photographs
and X-rays. Rydberg wrote
three letters during a two-
year period before finally
getting an answer.
"I was denied access to

mised not to reproduce the
photographs and X-rays by
any means, would he con-

Rydberg said he is puzzled
about why he was stone-
walled for more than 10
years, when others, who


had nothing to do with the
actual events, received ac-
cess.
To this day, Rydberg is
unable to gain access to these
materials.

LOPEZ from Page A

velopment project at a cost of
$11.3 million.
That plan drew criticism
because the various fees
involved total nearly half the
cost of the project, and the
new buildings would be con-
structed of wood, not more-
durable concrete block
Then Wednesday's edition
of the Venice Gondolier Sun
reported on internal e-mail
memos between Lopez and
developers suggesting the use
of evictions to reduce the
number of low-income units
to 35. VHA has 50 low-income
apartments now, but four are
empty because of asbestos.
In an e-mail Lopez urged


project developers to "avoid
public discussion" of the plan
to eliminate 15 low-income
units.
Developers and investors
stand to make more money if
most of the new apartments
are considered affordable or
workforce housing, for rent to
families that make more than
35 percent ($18,900) of the
median income.
The prospect of evicting
low-income residents from
Venice's only public housing
complex took VHA chair
Richard Appell by surprise.
"That was a shock," Appell
said. "I know Peter very well.
He's a knowledgeable man,
but to put something like that
in writing ... ."


After learning of the
memo, Appell called both
Lopez and Picerne Develop-
ment Corp., the company
handling the project, and said
any redevelopment must
have a minimum of 50 low-
income apartments.
"I told them we have to
make it work with at least 50
units, hopefully more ...," he
said. "I think it was just an
error on his part to consider
using evictions as a way to
lower the numbers."
There will be a special
meeting of VHA board mem-
bers at 6 p.m. Monday to act
on the vacant executive direc-
tor position and review appli-
cations. Operations Manager
Deborah Bevins was recom-


mended by Lopez as his
replacement, but Appell said
she has to apply for the posi-
tion like everyone else.

Skeptical
VHA was asked by Mayor
Dean Calamaras to attend
next Tuesday's city council
meeting and explain the pro-
posed redevelopment pro-
ject. Council members want
VHA developers to answer
concerns about the project's
design and displacement of
poor residents.
City council has no juris-
diction over VHA, but the
mayor does appoint its mem-
bers. The meeting will be in
council chambers of city hall
at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.


BUMP from Page 1A


Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton said that if the residents
don't want a sidewalk, he
knows of people in many
other communities who
would take one.
Staub also added that traf-
fic-calming devices, such as
speed tables, should be paid
for if a community really
wants them, especially the
more elaborate ones planned
for Gondola."

'Loud and clear'
Rick Gamel, also of the
Jacaranda West Homeowners
Association, said the traffic
problems will get much
worse, especially when Pine-
brook Road opens.
He added that the home-
owners only wanted four
speed tables and the county


Public Works department
added the extra tables.
Board members were sur-
prised by the revelation and
promised to get to the bottom
of any discrepancy.
"We are trying to relieve
traffic congestion," Gamel
said.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said she could live with
four tables for the community
since it would halve the costs.
The commissioners were
debating about what they
agreed to exactly in January
and ultimately asked for staff
to remind- them at a later
date.
Thaxton said he thought
the Gondola Drive speed
table project should be ex-
empt from having to pay,
since the property owners


had made their proposal to
the advisory council before
the board made the changes.
"I am objecting to what we
did because of principle,"
Thaxton said.
The board also wondered
whether there was even room
to build a sidewalk through
the neighborhood.
"This street is so built up
we would cut driveways,"
Staub said. "It would be better
to shift to another area."
Bruce Dold said the reason
everyone was so upset was
the conflicting information.
When the public comment
session ended, commission
chair David Mills thanked
everyone for their comments.
"We hear you loud and
clear," Mills said.

The most vocal critics have
been VHA Residents Council
president Carter Canada and
attorney Jon Preiksat, who's
donating his time to repre-
sent the tenants.
It was Preiksat's public
records request that uncov-
ered the e-mail memo, after
previous public records re-
quests disclosed inflated de-
veloper fees, the exclusion of
residents in planning meet-
ings and Lopez telling devel-
opers to "avoid public discus-
sion" of their proposal.
Relief was Preiksat's first


response to Lopez leaving,
followed by concern about
what was carried out of VHA
administration offices in the
middle of the night.
Preiksat believes more
than just personal belongings
were removed.
"Why else would someone
who's been there every day
drive home (to Fort Myers),
and then drive back at 3 in the
morning?" he asked.

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


New voter cards coming
Kathy Dent, supervisor of
elections, will be mailing new
voter information cards to all
registered voters in Sarasota
County.
All voters are urged to
check their new cards for
changes in precinct number
and polling location, and to
review their voting districts.
The card is informational
only and may not be used for
identification for voting.
Voters must present a
photo and signature ID at the
polls or will be required to
vote a provisional ballot.

tered to vote and do not

"I have to get those things
accomplished, or my life
won't be worth salt," Hanks
said with a laugh. "After I get
those things straightened up,
I'll get a Saturday and Sunday
off, and then I'll have to get
another job."
That other job most likely
will be one that doesn't pro-
vide a paycheck.
Hanks volunteers with
such groups as Venice Little
League, AAU Pythons (youth
baseball), Venice Pop Warner
Football, Venice High's SAC
Committee, the Rotary Fu-
;tures Scholarship Program,
the Triangle Inn Association
(he's president), Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice (board member) and
Epiphany Cathedral.
And that's what he's done
while holding down a full-
time job as the city's top cop.
In his opinion, retirement
will simply give him more
time to give of himself.
"The city's given me the op-
portunity to serve the commu-
nity, and nowwith mypension,
they've given me the opportu-
nity to serve the community
even more," Hanks said.

Hanks was scheduled to retire
within two years. But a seri-
ous car wreck in spring 2005
and two teenage children
prompted Hanks to go with a
date sooner rather than later.
On Sept. 1 he set a firm date of
March 1, 2006.
His daughter, Beth, is a
senior at Venice High and will
graduate in 2006. His son,
Tommy, 14, is a student at
Epiphany Cathedral School.
At 56 years old, Hanks said
he's ready to spend as much
time as possible with his chil-
dren while they're still
around.
When interviewed last
September, Hanks admitted it
"hurts" knowing his daughter
will be going away to college
this fall.
"I like to have my kids
around," Hanks said. "I like to
have their friends around. ...
There's been times where an
entire cheerleading squad or
Tommy's whole baseball
team is on the front lawn."
Back to the heart
In previous interviews,
City Manager Marty Black has
given much of the credit to
Hanks for low crime rates,


three SOE offices: in Sarasota,
Terrace Building, 2001 Adams
Lane; in Venice, Robert L.
Anderson Administration
Building, 4000 South Tami-
ami Trail; and in North Port,
Biscayne Plaza, 13640 Tami-
ami Trail.
They may also vote at the
Longboat Key Town Hall, 501
Bay Isles Road, Longboat Key.
Early voting hours at all
locations will be 8:30 a.m.-4:30
p.m. Monday through Friday; 9

and 11, and 1-5 p.m. Sunday,

bicycles to area children dur-

In Shops program has helped
many students get the back-
to-school supplies they need.
"Some folks ask, how is
that policing?" Black said last
fall. "That goes back to the
heart, the point, of communi-
ty policing."
On top of all his accom-
plishments, Hanks is most
proud of the completion of a
400-page book by now-
retired officer Bob Dodd
detailing VPD's 80-year histo-
ry. Computer discs with the
book and photos are for sale,
with proceeds benefiting the
Venice Archives.
T he Hall of Chiefs at police
headquarters, with paintings
of every city chief going back
to 1926, was created by
Hanks, who's been a Venice
resident since 1964.
Just don't expect his por-
trait to go up there. That's a
decision for some pther
police chief to make, he said.
"It's been a great 30 years.
It's went by just like that,"
Hanks said, snapping his fin-
gers.

WATER from Page 1 A
Climbing
The estimated cost to con-
nect homes to county water
has been climbing for
months. Because the quality
of well water has declined so
much saltwater and a
smell of sulphur have been
reported by Nokomis resi-
dents in their wells many
have resigned themselves to
connecting, whatever the
cost.
Calls for help by Nokomis
and Laurel residents have
continued since early last
December. They were advised
then by county public utilities


engineers that the cost to
hook up had jumped by 75
percent.
A per-lot estimate in April
2005 of $3,000 to $4,000 for
Nokomis had risen to a range
of $6,100 to $7,400 in just
under seven months.
Owners of 160 lots in
Laurel learned two weeks
later that their connecting
costs were also going up. The
rise in Laurel was $3,000 more
than the original estimate of
$7,000.
Altogether, about 1,600
homes within the Nokomis
revitalization area and adja-
cent neighborhoods are
affected by the rising cost

OUR VIEW




The ebb and flow of Florida's population


W e live in an era of contradictions.
The ice caps are melting at an
alarming rate in Greenland and
Antarctica. Those two icy places currently
hold 77 percent of the world's fresh water -
enough to raise the level of the world's seas by
as much as 225 feet, according to the
National Geographic Society.
If that should happened, all of Florida
would become a 21st-century Atlantis. Not
even Miami's tallest building would be
spared. Fortunately, the current rate of melt-
ing is expected to raise ocean levels by inch-
es, not feet.
Yes, global warming is a frightening
prospect. Yet, on Feb. 14, Florida's Everglades
were hit with the worst freeze in history,
reaching a low of 26 degrees two degrees
colder than the 28-degrees record set Feb. 6,


1947. Most of the sweet corn and green bean
crops were lost last week on Everglades farm-
land.
Hurricanes continue to be a threat. Officials
have already released 21 names for 2006, rang-
ing from Alberto to William. Global warming is
given credit for hurricane intensity.
Bill Gray, of Colorado State University, has
a reputation of producing accurate hurricane
predictions. His team warns there will be 17
Atlantic storms this summer and fall. Of
these, five are expected to have winds
exceeding 110 mph. They also forecast there
is an 81 percent chance of at least one major
. hurricane hitting the U.S. coast.
Still, thousands of people keep pouring
into Florida.
The U.S. Census Bureau reports that since'
1965, NewYorkers have led the parade of new


arrivals by a large percentage, while New
Jersey residents now rank second. The
Census Bureau predicts Florida's population
could outstrip NewYork's in five years.
Perhaps people who come here from
those two states, which have their own prob-
lems, find the chances of bad weather here
less bothersome than winters up north.
Experts say these fierce storms run in 20-
year cycles. The Atlantic cycle is in its 11th
year now.
Despite hurricanes and high home prices,
our population keeps growing. Contrary to,
what you might think, however, it's not
seniors who are doing the most moving, in
either direction.
While Florida has seen more in-migration
of persons 65 and older than any other state
- a University of Florida study says most of


those moving to Florida are "young, rather
than elderly. At least 44 percent of the in-
migrants were younger than 35 ... only 15-16
percent was age 65 or older."
"Young persons also account for most of
Florida's out-migrants ... more than half of
the persons leaving the state were younger
than age 35," the UF report continues.
Why? Jobs.
While sand, sun and surf are reasons older
people come here, for those under the age of
55, employment opportunities are the major
reason. Parts of Florida now have more job
openings than skilled workers, so we could
experience even more rapid growth.
We live in an age of puzzling contradic-
tions. Things are hard to sort out. But that
may be because fallible humans are trying to
deal with unrelenting nature.


It's time we learned POSSIBLE? BECAUSE I DT IAVE A

S9MAcsER ASSAiSTMT, 8og8Y
our lesson, part 2 SELLING: AWILL E IM CHARGE O THE
~A1~EU)~A~ FT%


As I write this, the referen-
dum vote on whether to con-
tinue the 1-mill school tax is
only a few short weeks away.
What this tax has already
accomplished over the last
four years is still something
that is not common knowl-
edge among most folks,'
unless you've attended one of
the meetings regarding this
topic or seen the bits that
have appeared in the local
papers over the last couple of
weeks. Still, there remain
more questions than answers.
Now the forces that would
benefit from this continued
tax, directly or indirectly, are
beginning to stir in earnest.
Various school officials have
been making the rounds
attempting to drum up sup-
port for this referendum, and
as voting day draws nearer,
the rhetoric and sophism, not
to mention tempers, are
reaching new heights.
The most notable individ-
ual who has been spending a
lot of time selling the tax's
continuance is, unsurprising-
ly, School Superintendent
Gary Norris,. whose fiefdom
directly depends on the con-
tinued flow of this tidal wave
of money.
A recent column reported
that while he has been well
received in the north part of
the county, his reception has
not been quite so stellar here
inVenice.
Earlier this month, Mr.
Norris spoke before the local
Republican club, whose
newsletter carried my first
op-ed on this subject on its
front page. Apparently, Mr.
Norris was advised of this
before his appearance, be-
cause (in addition to his ad
hominem statements toward
this writer) he actually had a
computer slide show presen-
tation created to refute vari-
ous points that I made in my
preceding column on this
subject. I guess I touched a
nerve.
Around town, signs are
now popping up from Citi-
zens for Better Schools, the
same group that was so in-
strumental in pushing this
referendum through' four
years ago. It's hard to know
how many actual "citizens"
are behind this, as opposed to
businesses that stand to ben-


efit in some way or another
from this continued tax.
"Keep the promise of to-
morrow" the signs say, but
they would more truthfully
read, "Spend money like
there's no tomorrow." Unfor-
tunately, the people who
don't favor the tax-and-spend
mentality never seem to get
their own yard signs. Funny,
that.
One of the more popular
phrases being used by the
tax's supporters is "your taxes
aren't going to be raised, since
you've already been paying
this." It is quite telling how the
idea that taxes could be low-
ered never occurs to them.
Nor is there any willing-
ness to compromise, such as
reducing the tax load to, say, a
half-mill. No, it's always pre-
sented as all or nothing.
Of course, to those who
benefit from government lar-
gesse, it's pretty well assured
that they will do their utmost
to convince everyone else
that big government is won-
derful. But let's face it, with
the incredible amounts of
money already spent on edu-
cation, if throwing more
hard-earned dollars at the
problem were the solution,
the schools would have al-
ready been fixed long ago.
On a personal level, I have
encountered some very edu-
cational reactions toward the
general resistance to this tax
* from various people within
the schools.
One reaction that genuine-
ly surprised me was from one
teacher who stated flat out,
"Hey, all I know is I'm going to
be paid more."
I have heard different ver-
sions of this from a few others
who work for the schools. For
them, it simply means more
money in their pockets. Per-
iod. Any benefit, direct or in-
direct, to the children (whom
the' schools supposedly exist
to serve) is never mentioned.
Another gentleman who
works close to Gary Norris
took me aback me with an
uncharacteristically snappish
remark: "I can't believe that
some teachers are stupid
enough to vote no."
Whoa! What could more
dramatically display the con-
tempt that at least some in
the superintendent's office
feel about the teachers in
their charge.
This brand of outburst cer-
tainly reinforces the common
perception that many people
hold regarding bureaucrats in
general. To display that sort of
attitude only goes to prove
that they just want your
money and your obedience,
not your opinion.

Rejecting referendum would hurt schools


Editor:
I don't think there is any question we should vote yes for the
continuation of the school-funding referendum.
The school board of Sarasota County is asking voters to con-
tinue the 1 mill of funding for another four years. This does not
represent a tax increase; it simply means taxpayers will contin-
ue to pay at the same rate.
Florida continues to underfund education, ranking 42nd of
the 50 states in per-capita funding.
As a result of the support of the citizens of Sarasota County,
in the past four years, the school district has rebuilt programs,
implemented intense training for teachers, reduced class sizes
and increased teacher pay to-be able to compete nationally for
the most talented teachers.
Most people are not aware that the state college system in
Florida produces only a fraction of the teachers needed to
teach in the state. Most teachers who work in Sarasota County
schools have been recruited from other states.
If the referendum is not supported on March 14, all teachers
in Sarasota County will take a 15-percent cut in pay. That
would significantly impact the ability of the district to attract
and retain the best teachers.
I have spoken to many voters and I have found overwhelm-
ing support for the school referendum when people truly
understand the issues and what is at stake for our students.
I have been especially impressed by the reactions of our
retired citizens. My experience has been that our retirees are
very interested in, and encouraged by, the positive contribu-
tions of our young people.

How about a U.S.
regime change?
Editor:
I strongly oppose giving
control of our ports to an
Arab company.
Isn't this -the same United
Arab Emirates that was one of
the few to recognize the
Taliban regime in Afghan-
istan?
Isn't this the same United
Arab Emirates that has been
the transfer point for rogue
nuclear weapons compo-
nents, and that has harbored
al-Qaida terrorists?
Are they completely out of
their minds? Or are we, for


allowing the Bush adminis-
tration to remain in power
even one single additional
day?
There is already a biparti-
san coalition forming to
demand that there be an
immediate investigation of
why such a deal was even
considered, let alone waved
through without a concern in
the world.
It's time to take control
back and impeach Mr. Bush.
He is worse than Saddam ever
was.

Don't shortchange
county students
Editor:
This is a response to Mark
Freeman's letter regarding the
March 14 referendum.
While I respect Freeman's
opinion, I must address his
facts. Most important, this is
not a new tax. It is a continua-
tion, a tax we have been pay-
ing for four years.
North Port has grown
rapidly and the building of
new schools is evident of that.
If this referendum should fail,
North Port schools will lose
$8,423,910 in funding, with
Heron Creek Middle School
losing $1,792,872. Teachers
will see their pay decreased
by 15.6 percent.
Available technology in
classrooms will be reduced,
art; music and PE programs
will also suffer.
Programs for at-risk stu-
dents will diminish.
Providing a quality educa-
tion for all students is our
responsibility.
The world, through tech-
nology, is a smaller place.
Our graduates are now
competing globally for jobs.
In order for them to do this
they must have every advan-
tage.
March 14 is the path to that
advantage.

Stewart's driving
is a disgrace
Editor:
Tony Stewart went to
NASCAR last week to talk
about aggressive driving and
bumper drafting.
His statement was, "some-


one is going to get killed," or
we are going to kill someone if
things don't change. He then
put on a display of aggressive
driving that left a lot to be
desired.
For a champion driver
with his ability to display a
careless and dangerous scene
like he showed Sunday is a
disgrace to the sport and to
NASCAR in general.
NASCAR should suspend-
ed him for two races. Also
Home Depot should pull his
sponsorship.
I know I will do as little
shopping at Home Depot as I
can get by with.
No way for a champion to
act.

Questions about
bypass project
Editor:
Well, FDOT's widening
plan for U.S. 41 Bypass will be
as popular as selling Osama
bin Laden dolls at the Shark's
Tooth Festival.
Some question:
1. How about a cement
median wall, with light poles
on top? The intersections can
have straight/left, straight
and straight/right lanes. The
signals can be green for half
-the road at a time. Empty
space on the sides of the road
could be green spaces.
2. If a five-lane Tamiami
Trail is good enough for
Venice, why not the bypass
too?
3. Can we have lights from
south confusion point to
Center Road now?

Sacrificing liberty to secure liberty?


DEREK DUNN-RANKIN
COLUMNIST


In our history, the curtail-
ment of free expression in the
name of public safety has
paid poor dividends.
The words of the Bill of
Rights seemed a given, an
unnecessary clutter to the
framers of the Constitution.
Virginia insisted that rights of
the individual needed to be
spelled out.
Madison promised to add
a Bill of Rights if Virginia
would accept the Constitu-
tion and a new government.
Virginia accepted the docu-
ment as written and New
York, in a close contest, fol-
lowed its lead. A new nation
was born.
Madison kept his promise.
The first of the amendments
we call the Bill of Rights spells
out our religious freedom and
the right to free speech, press
and assembly.
The Fifth Amendment
states that no person shall be
deprived "of life, liberty, or
property, without due process
of law; nor shall private prop-
erty be taken for public use
I without just compensation."
The Fourth Amendment is
in the news today: "The right
of the people to be secure in
i their persons, houses, papers,
and effects, against unreason-
'able searches and seizures,
shall not be violated, and no
'Warrants shall issue, but upon
* ,


probable cause, supported by
Oath or affirmation, and par-
ticularly describing the place
to be searched, and the per-
sons or things to be seized."
In times of national peril
the nation has ignored consti-
tutional liberties in fearing for
public safety.
A blot on the presidency of
John Adams were the Alien
and the Sedition acts, enacted
by a Federalist Congress. They
were ostensibly aimed at for-
eigners during the fear fever
of an alignment with revolu-
tionary France. Several Jeffer-
sonian" Republican editors
and politicians were jailed on
the basis of their published
opinions.
* During the Civil War, Pres-
ident Lincoln suspended ha-
beas corpus, allowing the jail-
ing of outspoken critics of the
war.
The war in Europe was
over when President Wilson's
attorney general, A. Mitchell
Palmer, began his raids
against suspected foreigners,
communists and socialists.
He recruited J. Edgar Hoover
as his special assistant and
used the Espionage Act (1917)
and the Sedition Act (1918) to
arrest and hold more than
6,000 people without trial.
At the onset of World War
II, President Roosevelt autho-
rized the removal of thou-
sands of Japanese Americans
from their homes and their
internment for the duration
of the war.
Following the terrorist
attacks on the World Trade
Center, Congress passed the
Patriot Act with only one sen-
ator dissenting.
No matter its content, in a
time of peril it is hard to vote
against an act with "Patriot" in
its name.
That act is about to expire.
The president maintains he


needs it to be strengthened
and re-enacted.
Today, Senate opposition is
strong enough to prevent a
quick re-enactment. Op-
ponents of the act know that it
infringes on our personal lib-
erties, particularly those un-
der the Fourth and Fifth
amendments.
Most of us assume our
right to privacy. A New York
Times news story strength-
ened opposition to the Patriot
Act when it reported that the
National Security Agency has
been listening to domestic
conversations without court
approval. The law requires a
showing that it is a national
security matter to gain court
approval that is almost never
denied.
Infringement of our
inalienable rights in a free
society is not a new challenge.
William Pitt, the great prime
minister of England and
friend of the American col-
onies in the decades before
the Revolutionary War, said it
well 250 years ago: "Necessity
is the plea for every infringe-
ment of human freedom. It is
the argument of tyrants; it is
the creed of slaves."

president of Sun Coast Media
Group.

Losing control. Do we have a fiefdom or a dynasty burgeon-
ing here in Venice? The Venice Foundation was created by the
sale of Venice Hospital after thousands of volunteer hours over
30 years built our community hospital into a valuable asset.
Despite a name change to Gulf Coast Community Foundation
of Venice, we hoped it would still be a Venice-oriented outfit
reporting to the citizens of Venice. But a dynasty is developing,
answerable to no one. Expensive speakers are imported.
Sarasota halls are rented. The speaker's fee is secret, even to the
press. What are they hiding? Do they have a secret agenda? As
a tax-free community foundation, all financial details should
be freely available to Venice citizens. Let's regain some com-
munity control before this fiefdom goes too far.

Chesney acquires Venice boat


PHOTO COURTESY OF JOE DOMBROWSKI
Country singer Kenny Chesney bought this boat in Venice recently.


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS! COLUMNIST

Country music superstar
Kenny Chesney acquired a
new boat a few weeks ago and
it came from Venice.
Arriving in his private jet,
he and his captain collected
the boat, taking it to his home
and mooring in the Virgin
Islands, according to Taylor
MacPherson of MarineMax,
1485 South Tamiami Trail,
Venice.
The 56-foot Sea Ray had
been seen daily passing
through ihe Venice Inlet to
cruise on the west coast of
Florida. Owned by former


commodore of Venice Yacht
Club Joe and Diane Dom-
browski, it was moored at
their Nokomis home.
It was named, appropri-
ately, Steel Dreams for Dom-
browski's business interests
based in Philadelphia. Ches-
ney renamed it Soul Shine,
but is understood to have
since changed the name.
The Sea Ray is featured on
Chesney's recently released
CD, "Living in Fast Forward,"
and appeared on TV when
Chesney was cruising in the
Caribbean with friends.
MarineMax of Venice, to-
gether with Palm Island and
Sarasota colleagues who


make up the West Central
Team, has just received the
prestigious Sea Ray Master
Ambassador Dealer Award.
MacPherson commented,
"It is the highest rating attain-
able, based ori a very high
standard of satisfaction rec-
ommended by customers,
and MarineMax team mem-
bers' interaction with com-
munity boaters in general."
The sale and transfer of the
boat to Chesney, which was
arranged by Mike Samson,
contributed toward Marine-
Max's Venice store and mari-
na, located near the Circus
Bridge on the island, winning
the prestigious award.


$1.9 million land purchase


Shoppes of Venice LLC
recently purchased 5 acres at
1500 E. Venice Ave., Venice,
from Elizabeth Campbell,
trustee, for $1.9 million.
An associated company,
Gateway Residential Land
Developers LLC, acquired the
adjoining 5 acres for $1.9 mil-
lion from the trust of Samuel
E. Kaplan.
Wade Pickard, managing
member of both companies,
was formerly with Georgia's
Wynton Group, builders of
garden-style apartments and
condominiums all over the
Southeast. He confirmed it
was his intent to get the
whole 10 acres, currently
under county zoning for low-
density agricultural, annexed
into the city and rezoned for
residential.
Pickard stated it would be
at least a year before any
infrastructure 'starts for the
subdivision, which is adja-
cent to Auburn Lakes and
Capri Isles and adjoins Manor
Health Care Services.
Barefoot Contessa
in Venice
Named after an old movie
and highlighting the city's
Italian influence, Barefoot
Contessa, a new downtown,
upscale ladies' boutique sells
everything except shoes.
Owner Badra Nanayak-
kara, originally from Sri
Lanka, moved to Venice two
years ago with her husband
after 30 years in hospital ad-
ministration in Washington,
D.C.
"I have always wanted to
open my own upscale, but
affordable fashion store,"
commented Nanayakka.
Barefoot Contessa, 305 W.
Venice Ave. on the island,
offers a selection of beach-
wear, formals, wedding dress-
es, silks, cottons, linens and
jewelry.
Store hours are 10 a.m.-5
p.m. Monday through Satur-
day and Sundays in season.

services at the Venice Holiday
Inn, 455 North U.S. 41
Bypass.
S"I'sh t final; blfit e antic.-
ipate we will not be running
the restaurant and banquet-
ing facilities, assuming a con-
tract is signed with the new
incoming Harmony House
restaurant team," confirmed
Lucy Steinwachs of Buffalo
Bill's Catering Services Inc.
She and husband Gary will
work out of the hotel
kitchens, continuing their
very successful offsite cater-
ing.
"Our business is healthy
and strong. We have banquets
booked and we will do them,"
said Steinwachs.
The business was started
in Venice in 1964 by her hus-
band's parents; she and Gary
took over in 1982.
"We are looking for a com-
mercial kitchen in Venice,
because that's where our cus-
tomer base is and the people
we like catering to," com-
mented Steinwachs. Call 485-

Fountain water test
Venice MainStreet and the
city of Venice are eagerly
awaiting the report of the
Florida Department of Health
following a water test and the
installation of engraved pav-
ers for the new Children's
Fountain downtown.
The multi-spray water
fountain is located near the
Gazebo in Centennial Park by
Tampa Avenue. It has been
under construction for 12
months, and the two groups
will announce shortly the
date they are staging a grand
opening.
Quik Chek stalls
Plans were approved in
February 2004 and renova-
tion work began last October
on the former Quik Chek
store at the comer of Noko-
mis and Miami Avenues on
the island.
But family illness issues
resulted in progress coming
to a standstill, according to
owner Howard Burke of
Florida Sunshine Properties.
No details were available
on the continuation and
completion of the project.

"I '-had to' get'back to
Bradenton, which is our main
store, to overcome the loss of
some guys, and so Venice had
to close, but we will get back
up there," said Joe Quinones,
owner and partner in the
Westshore Pizza restaurant at
775 U.S. 41 Bypass in Gulf
Coast Plaza.
It.opened last August in the
former Bronx Pizza location.
He confirmed a number of

Harriman s heating things up with solar


.BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS! COLUMNIST


President Bush's State of
the Union speech is having a
direct impact on the future of
a Venice business.
The intention to concen-
trate more resources on solar
and other energy conserva-
tion projects has encouraged
Harriman's CEO Tom Har-
riman's planned expansion.
Harriman's Inc., 140 James
St., was started in Venice in
1969 by David Harriman as
an electrical contracting
company. Tom, his son, at-
tended USF in Tampa, where
after cgradua.tiugdhe-_studied
the fledging solar energy
business for one and a half
years.
Returning to Venice, he de-
cided to get involved in ener-
gy conservation, joining his
dad's business. Solar was add-
ed.
Eventually the business
developed totally into solar
heating for swimming pools
and homes. However, the


technicians are state-certified
electrical contractors and the
company is also a swimming
pool contractor.,
Although Harriman's exist-
ing premises are large, it is
resource inefficient in design,
with .insufficient parking for
15 employees and company
vehicles.
Harriman began looking
for alternate premises and,
located an acre lot) at 120
Morse Court on Triple Dia-
mond Commerce Plaza off
Laurel Road in North Venice.
The custom-designed 8,250-
square-foot building will con-
tain offices, warehousing and
poking, for fu cure growiir,, :-,
"It is a fantastic location for
us, close to the interstate to
get our men on the road,"
commented Harriman.
He hopes to start permit-
ting for construction this
summer. The project will cost
more than $1 million, and be
operational in January 2007.
The company serves the
Interstate 75 corridor from
Punta Gorda through Char-


lotte, DeSoto, Sarasota, Man-
atee, Hillsborough and Pinel1
las counties, and the new
location will fit well for trans-
portation to and from instal-
lations.
"More and more folks are
seeing the writing on the wall
and looking at ways to cut
their energy costs. Hurricane
Katrina wiped out resources
causing natural gas prices to
skyrocket and electricity is up
20 percent," stated Harrimanr
who is also president of the
Florida Solar Energy Associl
ation.
His installation business
has increased 10-15 percent
annually to adhitW't ftf in
20 WO, buifthis is jimfrifdy
swimming pools, at 90 per-
cent, with home heating' oily
10 percent.,
He believes more homes
and offices will adopt solar
heating.
The average homeowner
solar water heating installa-
tion costs $3,000-$4,000 and
owners qualify for a 30-per-
cent tax credit.

Indian boys net third straight victory


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Two years ago, Venice High
boys tennis, led by the one-
two punch of Marcus Echtler
and Aaron Haines, had one
of the top teams in the state.
Although the two graduat-
ed, the Indians were able to
hold serve last year, posting
a winning record and tying
for second in the district.
The Venice boys only have
one returning singles player
and senior on this year's
squad, but Wayne Robert-
son's 10th season at the helm
of the program should add
up another pleasant experi-
ence.
The Indians have the
goods to post another win-
ning season.
They are certainly head-
ing that way. After a season-
opening loss to Lakewood
Ranch, Venice has won three
straight matches, the latest
coming Thursday against
visiting Port Charlotte. ,
Itwas a7-0 shutoutwith all
Indians winning their outings
on the still new on-campus
courts.


At No. 1 singles, Stephen
Taylor blanked Mike Baker,
6-0, 6-0. Steven King bested
Brandon Bernard at No. 2,
6-1, 6-1. At No. 3, Michael
DeRoma topped Josh Pat-
rick, 6-1, 6-0. Adrian Hevia
cruised at No. 4 over Scott
Senna, 6-0, 6-0. Kyle Mc-
Smythe sailed at No. 5, 6-0,
6-0 over Dustin McAllen.
In doubles, King and
DeRoma defeated Baker and
Bernard, 6-2, 6-1, and Hevia
and Chandler Greico, 6-0, 6-0.
Taylor is a junior who
came over to VHS. from
Riverview. He is a good ath-
lete who also is on the Indian
swim team.
King is the. lone returning
senior. He played No. 4 last
year.
DeRoma is a junior who
played some doubles match-
es last year.
Hevia is a sophomore
with lots of promise.
McSmythe is also a soph-
omore. His father, Craig, is a
local tennis pro.
A couple of freshmen will
also make their presence
felt this year. Dominic Baia-

MR. SHEEPSHEAD


It's true. We absolutely do
not have sheephead in
Florida. We have plenty of
sheepshead, but no sheep-
head.
If you want to see sheep-
head, you must go north or
northwest into the Northeast.
or Midwest. It is a freshwater
trash fish in those areas.
Please repeat after me,
sheepshead. I can't under-
stand why so many locals call
them by the wrong name.


Most of these people have
never seen a sheephead.
I have another pet peeve.
Tourists and newcomers to
our area have a habit of laugh-
ing at the word sheepshead
on my shirt. I tell them that I
wouldn't laugh at their last
name. I say that sheepshead
comes from a long line of
English nobles. Most of the
Whiteheads in England are
my cousins. I get even with
them when they ask "what
kind of fish is that?" Now I've,
got them. I say it's a striped
salmon. I wink my eye and
everyone starts laughing.
The following is Mrs.
Sheephead's sheepshead
recipe:
Pat the fillets dry. Add
Miracle Whip light or any
mayonaise to the top of each
fillet. Add paprika, pepper
and garlic powder with pars-
ley. Fry with Pam spray or any
light oil. Fry approximately


five minutes. Do not turn. Add
grated cheese when they are
about half cooked. Delicious.
Here's another way to pre-
pare a sheepshead. Scale and
gut your fish. Cut off the tail
and head. Stuff baby carrots,
sliced sweet onions and any
other veggie into the belly.
Season to taste and wrap in
foil. Put it on the grill for
about four minutes on each
side on a medium heat. I've
only fixed it this way with
larger sheepshead. When fin-
ished, the main bone comes
right out and the other bones
seem to disappear. It has a
completely different taste.
Mr. Sheepshead (Dave
Hack) is a longtime resident
of Venice, He is a wholesaler!
distributor of cooked frozen
S.sandfleas,A logic Formula
and other items. He can be
contacted at Mrsheepshead

VHS College Night an ..eye opener for students




VHS College Night an eye opener for students


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

South County College
Night at Venice High offered
students and parents a
chance to forget about FCATs
and get some answers in per-
son about college admissions
and financial aid.
Nearly 50 institutions of
higher education set up
tables lining the VHS gymna-
sium Wednesday evening.
They were hand-picked by a
committee from the Rotary
Futures Program, primary
sponsor of the event.
'In addition to perennial
favorites USF, UF, FSU, UCF,
MCC and FGCU, students
and parents talked with rep-
resentatives from colleges,
universities and technical
schools around Florida and
the country, including Au-
burn and Syracuse universi-
ties.
By evening's end, the click-
er showed nearly 450 stu-
dents and parents had walked
through the doors leading to
the fourth annual College
Night.
Natalie Bona and Oksana
Shur, both 10th-graders at
Venice High, left the building
with armfuls of marketing
brochures. They collected
college admissions informa-
tion and program pamphlets,
and chatted with recruiters
hoping to, glean information
that will help make that most
important of educational
decisions where to attend
college.
"We're just doing some re-
search on colleges," Shur said.
"It's very useful," said,Beth
Meinket, who was there with
her son, Michael Argay, a
junior at Venice High interest-
ed in microbiology. "We
found out some things we
hadn't known, like just how
many colleges out there offer
microbiology ... and about
scholarship opportunities.
We're left to find out about
millions of dollars in scholar-


ships on our own. This helps
us find our way through that
maze."
Break out
"Parents and students
seem to really like the break-
out sessions," said Kim
Kindell, director of the Rotary
Futures Program. "It's some-
thing they don't get else-
where. Because of our format,
students and parents had an
opportunity to hear presenta-
tions from major Florida uni-
versities and colleges, where
most of our students will
attend. They appreciate hav-
ing the opportunity to speak
one-on-one with someone
from the college they are
interested in attending."
Diane Davis, a speech lan-
guage therapist at Venice
High, made the rounds with


Arts, took the opportunity to
query its recruiter on what
the school is like. He will
attend next year, majoring in
theater production.
Hot demand
Parents and students visit-
ed the tables staffed ,by the
Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club
and Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice. Foun-
dation representatives hand-
ed out a scholarship quick-
reference guide. The guide
listed available scholarships,
deadlines, areas of study
applicable, qualifications and
preferences that might be
given to those seeking schol-
arships.
The Rotary Futures Pro-
gram has an extensive data-
base of college scholarships
well known to Venice High

up in front of the table staffed When the Rotary Club
by a recruiter from Ringling learned how few counselors
School of Art and Design are available to talk with stu-
inquiring about requirements dents at a typical high school,
for admission. it decided to take up some of
VHS senior Michael Lan- the slack, saidAnne Skinner, a
eve, who just last week learn- volunteer who was there with
ed he was selected for an in- husband Ernie to hand out
temship at Florida School of college night flyers and track


attendance.,
The Rotary Futures Pro-
gram database of school
scholarships is in hot de-
mand. It has received more
than 16,000 visits since open-
ing in January 2002.
Located in a portable on,
the Venice High campus, the
program has computers open
to all students and their par-
ents in South County Tuesday
through Friday.
Students can come in and
search the Internet database
by entering their specific in-
formation (SAT scores, CREST
rank, career interests, loca-
tion) and additional criteria.
The computer sons through
more than 500 scholarships,
identifying ones that a stu-
dent qualifies for.
"The typical high school
senior comes up with 60-120
scholarships to review and
make decisions about,"
Kindell said. "Our computer


program has links to Web
sites with online scholarship
applications, or the student
can obtain a paper applica-
tion from our files. This is so
user friendly."
The event was sponsored


by A.G. Edwards and the
Rotary Futures Program.

Once again, bad behavior in the outdoors


Once again, a
thoughtless boater
decided to exhibit
his lack of common
sense and respect for
other boaters. Last
Wednesday morning, I
had an early half-day
charter. If you recall, the
morning started off with
temperatures in the low
40s,-but it was the first
day of a warming trend.
My client and I left the
dock at 8:00 a.m. bun-
dled against the chill.
There were no other
boats on the water, as
most everyone else had


EDITOR'S OPINION


Capt. Rod
Walinchus


the good sense to sleep in
and get a later (and cer-
tainly warmer) start.
We spent some instruc-


tional time casting and
generally discussing fly
fishing and when my
client, Dave, felt he was
ready to fish, I poled
across the flat to a couple
potholes I thought might
hold a fish or two. The
water was still too cold
and no fish were found,
so we poled to the edge
of a canal leading into
the Boca Bayou. Here I
thought we would find
some trout holding in the
deeper, warmer water of
the canal.
We anchored on the
edge of the canal and


A REAL SEA MONSTER


KRT photo
The Leafy Sea Dragon at the Georgia Aquarium, located near Centennial Olympic
Park in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. The creature, native to Pacific waters near Aus-
tralia, measures about 10 inches high hardly monstrous.


Dave began working on
his casting form, hoping
a stray fish would take his
fly. It wasn't long before a
good-sized ladyfish
struck. Ladyfish are a
good "first fish" for begin-
ner fly rod enthusiasts.
Again, there were no
other boats in sight and
none could be heard
motoring in the distance.
We had the place to our-
selves but not for long.
Another boat with two
fishermen idled down the
canal right for us. They
were locked onto our
position and ran a .
straight and true course
to us. I thought that
when they came near us
they would veer off down
the canal, but no they
-kept coming. When they
were about 30 yards from
us, they attempted to
motor up on the flat -
which was only a foot
deep. Obviously, they
didn't make it.
They backed down
and were within 20 feet
of my boat as Dave
played another ladyfish.
Their boat was still run-
ning and they moved
even closer to us. I final-
ly asked them if I could
help them. I think the
question confused them,
because they then asked
if they could cross the
flat behind us the one
they had just gotten
stuck on. I stared at
them with total disbe-
lief. What were they
thinking?
Then they told me
they were going to get
into position and


motored across my bow
within 15 feet exclaiming
they were going to get
into "position" what-
ever that meant. They
turned around and
crossed my bow again.at
the same distance. I
glared at them, put up
my arms in'that "what
do you think you're
doing?" gesture and
made a comment or two.
They eventually motored
off back to wherever they
came from.
Again, my boat was
the only boat in sight, we
were anchored and obvi-
ously fishing. Heck, Dave
had a fish on when they
rudely barged in on us.
There was absolutely no
logical reason for them
to come so close to us.
Common courtesy
would seem to dictate
giving us a wide berth so
as not to disturb our
fishing, but disturb they
did. Granted, we were
only catching ladyfish,
and in the greater
scheme of things it was-
n't a big deal, but it's the
principal of the thing
that bothers me.
I suppose I could
understand it better if
they were sightseers,
tourists or joy riders who
have no concept of fish-
ing, but these guys had
rods rigged and ready to
go in every rod holder
aboard their boat. They
should have known bet-
ter. I'll bet they'll have a
few choice words for any-
one attempting to horn
in on their action when
they set up over fish.

Tips and tricks


ng live shrimp


D during the past co:u-
ple of months, I
have consistenidy
been using shrimp. I
always leave the dock
with 10 to 15 dozen
shrimp. I feel you can
never have too much bait.
Which is worse, having
too many shrimp or not
enough when you'i e
catching fish?
If you stroll down a cit
pier or jetty, you will find
the most common bati
used is shrimp. Why do
you think that is? Well,
first of all, shrimp
are readily avail -
able at most of our
local bait shops. And
secondly, just about
everything will eat
shrimp. The most com-
mon oversight using
shrimp is how it is rigged
on a hook. Over the yeaj-,
I have seen many differ -
ent ways of effectively rig-
ging shrimp. I am going to
go over a couple easy
ways to get the most out
of using live shrimp.
Before I get started, we
should understand how a
shrimp acts in the wild.
Normally, a shrimp will
swim forward using its
swimmerets tiny legs
under the tail. When the
shrimp knows danger is,
near, the escape from
danger happens with a
snap of its tail that causes
a quick backward move-
ment. Knowing this is
important, because being
able to duplicate that
action will produce many
more impulse strikes.
My favorite way to rig
shrimp is on a number
two circle hook through
the tail. This is a great way
to get those long distance

fish I \\ill insert die hook
through die side of die
tail in the last section
before the fan of die tail.
You t\ant to make sure
dhal die hook goes
through both sides of the
shell on die tail. Having
the head of the shrimp
hanging away from the
hook will allow for a
longer cast because the
head of the shrimp has
most of the weight. If I
know I will be using a
slow retrieve, I will cut off
the fan of the tail. Cutting
off the fan will keep the
shrimp from spinning on
the retrieve.
Depending on current, I
will add a small splitshot
to get the shrimp down
near the bottom and this
will also add a little dis-
tance to your cast.
Another very easy way to
rig shrimp is to use a
small eighth-ounce jig
head. This is .a great
method under docks or in
deep channels. I still hook

shrimp. First, cut off the
fan of the tail and insert
the hook through the end
of the tail about a quarter
of an inch. Once the barb
of the hook has been
inserted, exit the hook
underneath the side of its
tail. Slide the hook
through.and onto the
bend of the hook near
the eyelet. After that is
done, insert the hook as
far forward as possible to
ensure that the barb is.
imbedded into the
shrimp. You do not need
to have the point of the
hook exposed to get a
good hook-set on a fish..
These are all good ways.
of using one of nature's
best baits for a variety of
gamefish. Shrimp are one
of the staple foods the
fish just can't resist. Try
some of these techniques
on your next day out and
see if you too will have
success.

It's record time


Swas asked a question
last week that prompt-
ed me to pick up my
copy of the current book
of world record catches.
The Internadonal Game
Fish Association publishes
this book annually, and
the copy I picked up is
titled simply "2006 World
Record Game Fishes." This
book lists all current
record catches from
around the world in both
fresh and salt water,
including men's and
women's records on con-
ventional and fly tackle.
In addition to the list-
ings of hundreds of record
catches that have been
accepted over many
decades, the record book
contains all the rules and
requirements for record
catches. It was the section
on rules that prompted


my attention. The ques-
tion I had been asked %was:
"Now that some of the
most popular fish in
Florida are regulated b'
slot size limits, which pro-
hibit the harvest of the
largest fish, will the cur-
rent state and world
records for these species
ever again be broken in
Florida?" It turns out the
answer is a resounding
"maybe," which requires a
bit of digging to under-
stand.
The folks at IGFA have
developed a very detailed
set of requirements which
must be met before a
lucky angler can have his
catch recorded as an offi-
cial record. Some of these
requirements spell out the
kind of fishing tackle
which may be used and
what type of hooks and

rigging are allowed. NMost
of the rules are designed
to ensure that all record
fish are landed using "nor-
mal" fishing equipment
and methods and that no
equipment is used or
methods employed that
might give an angler an
unfair advantage over
other anglers using typical
fishing gear. This sounds
straighdfonvard, but when
you consider the rules
must cover all fishing situ-
ations from light-tackle
bluegill fishing in farm
ponds all the way up to
big-game trolling for
monster marlin offshore,
it becomes clear the rules
must be very carefully
crafted. .
Some of the rules are
common sense, such as
the requirement that all
fish be landed on rod and
reel and not netted or har-
pooned. Others reflect the
opinions of the IGFA folks
as to what constitutes
sporting angling. Some of
these rules include a pro-
hibition against electric

reels and a prohibition
against the use of treble
hooks with live or dead
natural bait. Other ,
rules specify that
anglers may not have any
outside assistance in tight-
ing a record fish. This rule
obviously is intended to
avoid a situation where
more than one angler
team up to whip a large
fish, but it also prohibits
outside assistance from
non-human sources. For
example, if a shark bites a
fish during the fight but
the fish is later landed and
is determined to weigh
more than the existing
record, the shark-bitten
fish will not qualify as a
record because it's possi-
ble the bite from the shark
may have injured or weak-
ened the fish, thereby giv-
ing the angler an unfair
advantage in landing the
fish.
There are a couple of

A Cracker learns to love Yankee food


Igrew up eating snook,
mullet and alligator
tail fried in bacon
grease. As any true son of
the south will tell you
these are important ele-
ments of our southern
culture, a civilization
closely tied to the out-
doors back then you
just could not get snook
or gator in the grocery
store and there were
myriad mullet in every-
body's back yard.
For condiments, we *
also tortured our bodies
with cholesterol. Next to
the deep-fried gator was
swamp cabbage or col-
lard greens, simmered for
hours and swimming in a
sauce made with the
addition of a ham hock
or hog jowl to the cook-
ing liquid.
Southerners always
keep the cooking liquid
that such vegetables are
stewed in. We call it "pot
liquor," and it's consid-
ered good medicine to
swill this down after
yammering up the
swamp succulence and,
especially, the greens.
These are undeniably
southern affectations and
something no true
Florida "Cracker" would
ever disavow. But I have a
small confession to
make.
As a Cracker, I hate to
admit it, but I've grown'a
fondness for Yankee food.
Oh, I haven't given up
my grits and greens just
yet, but the stuff from the
Yanks is pretty tasty, and
I think I now know the
reason for the attraction.
As a southern boy, it
pains me to admit it, but
I think the Yankees have
an outdoor food culture
of their own. Shameful as
it might be, I've taken a
liking to this foreign grub.
Growing up on the
Florida Gulf Coast, I
never partook of corned
beef or pastrami until I
was in my late twenties.
There was no Yankee
food around back then. I
can remember hearing
about something odd
called lox and bagels and


OUTDOOR ADVENTURES

Knowles

not knowing what in the
world that was. It would
have eased my mind if
they would simply have
called it smoked mullet
and biscuits, and while I
still favor such fare, I've
also learned to enjoy the
delicate taste of smoked
salmon and cream
cheese on a textured
Kosher bun.
Whether you come
from the deserts of Israel,
the boroughs of New York
or the depths of a Florida
swamp, at one time this
was all wilderness and
people made up their
food as they gathered it.
One curious fact that I
have stumbled on was
the discovery of the tuna
fishery, now a canned
commodity in every
household pantry.


Originally, Atlantic
salmon were the canned
(and smoked) fish of
choice in much of the
world. But they over-
fished the salmon and
had to turn to the more
abundant tuna supply.
One of the more inter-
esting things about
Yankee salmon is the dif-
ference between so-
called Nova and lox. The
former is brined and
cured then lightly
smoked, but lox is simply
cured by brining and has
a stronger flavor and less
cost than the Nova.
salmon that many prefer.
I like my fish hearty
and enjoy both varieties,
but I can't help but pine
for the smoked mullet
market that never devel-
oped.
Maybe mullet, with
their black stomach lin-
ing and curious, cucum-
ber-like smell, never had
a chance as a consumer
choice when faced with
the graceful coral color of
salmon and a romance
that traversed the world.
I guess we shouldn't
fault the Yankees for
favoring salmon over
Florida's simple mullet.
After all, salmon are a
beautiful fish and one of


the greatest gamesters in
the world. They are
caught on worshiped fly
patterns, like the Royal
Coachman; mullet eat
dough balls and they
stink.
But we in Florida wor-
ship this simple fish. But
that doesn't mean I can't
step out and feast on
fancy Yankee food from
time to time.
In old Florida, all they
had was salt, pepper and
wood smoke to preserve
their food. Yet the old
Crackers could not cold
smoke their food. There
are two methods for
smoking food. In
European and New
England areas (and in the
Pacific Northwest) the
temperatures get cold
enough to slow smoke
food. In the case of -
Virginia country hams,
the smoking process can
last for weeks. Such a
thing was not possible in


the heat of the Sunshine
State.
So the Crackers learned
how to "hot smoke" their
food. This method
involves a quick smoking
time and high heat.
Consequently, Florida
smoked mullet are both
cured and cooked at the
same time.
Lox, Nova and even
country hams are cured
but not cooked. Now, I
like sushi a lot, and
maybe that's why I've
become partial to Yankee
food. It's a bit more deli-
cate than mullet that's
been smoked to jerky
stiffness.
Meanwhile, wherever
the origins of such cured
meats, they were able to
add flavors to corned
beef and pastrami and
even Icelandic gravlax.
The poor Crackers of-
Florida knew only the
rough salt splashed up
from the Gulf of Mexico


and what pepper or vine-
gar they might acquire.
There is something
very old about cured
foods. As one of my
English friends always
reminds me, the
Europeans expanded
their empires for one
simple reason. They
needed spices to cover
up and cure the taste of
rotten meat.
Such necessity sent
European explorers to
settle the wild world.
Today, we still enjoy this
sense of adventure in
cured meat products. We
don't have to smoke fish
or corn beef anymore,
but it has become an
acquired taste.
' Somehow the
Europeans perfected this
art and passed it along to
our Yankee forebears.
This was probably
because they were

involved in long ship voy-
ages. Early tropical folks
had so much abundance
of fish and game that
there was little reason to
make a product that
would store for a very
long time. If your food
supply ran out, you sim-
ply caught more.
One notable exception
to this rule is the
Jamaican dish of pepper
pot soup. This dish is
made of various vegeta-
bles and meats, often
including seafood.
However, the stew is
heavily seasoned with
salt and spices, which act
as a preservative. Hence,
the pepper pot is con-
stantly maintained.
After heating it up,
adding more ingredients
and feeding the family,
the pepper pot is turned
off. Salt and spice is
added and the pot is left
on the stove and reheated
the next day.
Now, I like pepper pot
and swamp cabbage and
black eyed peas on the
NewYear, but the Yankee
method of preservation
seems more sophisticat-
ed and it gives such items
a definite flavor missing
from southern cornbread
and collard greens.
I've got to admit that
I've grown fond of the
New England-style
Yankee pot roast. Not
fond enough to turn up
my nose at swamp cab-
bage or other Florida del-
icacies, but I have devel-
oped a yearning for true
Yankee cuisine.
You will never get me to
give up greens, grits or
smoked mullet, and I
probably wouldn't be
around today if it weren't
for gator tail, but I kind of
like this Yankee fare.
For us Crackers, mak-
ing a living meant chop-
ping down a cabbage
palm and cast netting
mullet. Our northern
counterparts had other
menu options. Somehow,
in our different ways, we
all managed to make
good eats out of the out-
doors.

Phosphate mining and our waterways



Phosphate mining and our waterways


A th Charlotte
County spending
S millions of dol-
lars to fight new phos-
phate mines, we thought
it useful to present an
overview of the issues at
hand. This is the first in a
two-part series examining
"what is phosphate min-
ing" and "what are the
waterway issues." Our
thanks to "Bay Soundings"
for sharing their research
with us.
Millions of years ago,
when Florida was part of
the land mass that broke
away from the African
continent, it became an
underwater rock ledge
extending up the Carolina
coast. Over time, seden-
tary deposits from the
shells and skeletons of
marine life accumulated
on the rocks and formed
the land mass we know
today. As the dissolved
phosphorous combined
with the remains of sea
life, it solidified and creat-
ed the phosphate rock
reserves. On top of this
rock is a layer of clay and
limestone deposits and a
layer of fossil remains that
remind us of the times
when sharks swam over
central Florida around a
land mass occupied by
three-toed horses, giant
sloths and mastodons.
These are all reminders of
times past when animals
journeyed from Asia
across what is now the
Bering Strait.
The resultant phos-

industry maintains th
without Florida's pho

ducers would have to

import it, thus raising
farmers' costs and ull
mately the cost of foo

Environmentalists main-
tain that mining of phos-
phate rapes the land and
leaves ecological waste-
lands, creates lakes of
chemical cesspools which
-- potentially can contami-
nate our waters, creates
200-foot-high stacks of
radioactive byproducts
and drains our rivers and
wetlands of water flow.
Depending on your role in
life, one can make a
is are strong argument that
he phosphate mining is
he either a curse or a blessing
idus- to the state.
n The Florida phosphate
hat industry is a dying busi-
hich ness. The majority of the
h and rich deposits have been
For mined, and it is getting
es, it more and more difficult to
mine phosphate econom-
,it ically. Most experts esti-
d so mate that the reserves will
regu- be depleted within 30
iatu- years. Twenty-five years
itute ago, there were 20 mining
are companies operating in
or Florida; today, there are
only three. Yet, for a
iains declining industry, it still
ippli- is said to employ nearly
ver 75 40,000 people in related
market jobs and it contributes five
ell as billion dollars to the state's
old's economy. So the industry
still has plenty of clout in
at some of our state and
s- county agencies.
o- A phosphate strip mine
turn is a huge operation, with
s and most mine sites larger
g than a metropolitan city.
i- On a mine site, huge
id to draglines rip the land


open to depths of 30 to 50
feet. Pipes will run over 10
miles carrying slurries of
phosphate rock, sand and
clay to the processing
plant. Similar pipes run
back to the mine site car-
rying sand and tailings -
waste products, sent back
to be redeposited and
backfill the mine pits.
Other waste products
include acidic waste water
and phosphogypsum. The
water is stored in holding
ponds within clay berms
and the radioactive phos-
phogypsum is stored in
stacks up to 200 feet high.
Tampa Bay residents
remember well when in
2001 the Mulberry Mining
Company closed its doors,
leaving them with a
cleanup that cost over 160
million dollars. In addition
to the cleanup costs, there
were discharges of the
highly acidic water into
Bishop Harbor and
there is still no resolution


for the stacks of phospho-
gypsum.
Because of the low
radioactivity levels in
phosphogypsum, there is
no way to dispose of it. It
is estimated that there is
currently over one billion
tons of phosphogypsum
in mine site stacks around
central Florida. In addi-
tion to the obvious side
effects of phosphate min-
ing, there is also some
conjecture over the condi-
tion of the land after it has
been backfilled with the
byproducts of the mining.
Some people, including
Charlotte County
Commissioner Adam
Cummings, believe that
the displacement of rock
formations which are
backfilled with sand and
tailings changes the
nature of the land in a
manner that causes the'
water in our rivers and
wetlands to seep more
rapidly through the soil,


thus depleting flows in the
Peace River and the sur-
rounding wetlands. There
are statistics that show
depleted river flows and in
some cases, there are
drastic changes as the
flows pass mine sites.
The Peace River begins
its course to Charlotte
Harbor near Lakeland. To
date, phosphate mining
has centered around the
center of the state and the
Tampa Bay area. The task
of dealing with mining
companies has been in
those counties to our
north and east. While we
certainly would have seen
any effects of mining on
the Peace River, the mines
were not within our own
backyard. Now the mining
companies want to start
new mines, nearer to us
and at the headwaters of
Horse Creek one of the
main tributaries feeding

How to stay sane on windy days


If there is one thing I
cannot stand, it's
fishing in very windy
conditions. It tends to
take my mind off the
fishing because I have a
real problem feeling the
bait if I happen to be
fishing a worm.
However, there are a few
things that I have found
I can do in windy condi-
tions which make fish-
ing a little bit easier.
The first thing I like to
do is in practice prior to
a tournament I will
look at both sides of the
lake. I try to put myself
in a position to have
more than one spot with
catchable fish in the
event they don't bite in
my primary spot. You
should always have a
backup plan anyhow,
and windy conditions
can sometimes force you
into your backup plan
faster than fish not bit-
ing well,
As for the type of baits
you throw, there are
modifications you can
make to your favorite
bait. If you like to throw
a worm, simply put a
heavier weight on so you
can feel your bait
bouncing on the bot-
tom. Often a light weight
will give you absolutely
no feel and can be hard
to cast. If you cannot
make accurate casts and
get your bait where it
needs to be to catch fish,
you are wasting time.

Try putting on a hea
weight. You will finch
fishing much easier
that simple change.
If you like to flip a
the wind is blowing
your spot making it
tough to fish, move
another spot. The n
thing about flipping
that if you are work
grass line and the w
is making it difficult
fish, you can always
a similar grass line t
work in another par
the lake. You may h;
to look hard for a sil
type of grass line ou
the wind, but you c;
often find another s
that will produce so
fish.
What I like to do i
move to baits that a
retrievable. I like thi
ing a spinnerbait an
some form of crank
in order to constant
feel my bait. Many t
when the wind com
up, it is due to some
of weather change o


N' front moving through.
The fish will move or
feed a little bit more
when the weather con-
ditions start to change. I
can cover more water
with a retrievable bait,
while at the same time
getting the bait in front
of more fish if they are
moving by making more
casts through an area.
Boat control is the sin-
gle most important fac-
tor when fishing in the
ivier wind. It can be difficult
1 the to keep the boat from
with drifting into where you
want to fish. You need to
nd have a strong enough
on trolling motor to keep
the boat pointed into
to the wind if at all possi-
ice ble. You may move a lit-
is tle slower down the
ing a shoreline but you can be
ind thorough in covering an
t to area. If you simply can-
find not keep the boat into
0o the wind and you are
t of forced to "drift fish," you
ave need to find a way to
milar slow the boat down. You
it of can throw a windsock
an out and allow it to drag
pot behind the boat to slow
me it down. You can even
try using your trolling
s motor in reverse to slow
re down. The one thing you
row- want to be able to do is
d 'to keep the boat off of
bait the fish.
ly The most critical time
imes for this is when you
es actually get a bite. If you
sort are running a grass line

you may get a bite and
before you know it, the
boat has drifted into the
grass during the fight
and the fish tied up in
the grass under the boat.
It is a good habit when
you get a bite in windy
conditions to turn the
trolling motor away
from the grass line. This
will buy you more time
to play the fish and coax
him out of the grass.
After all, you run the risk
of breaking the fish off if
it gets hung up in the
grass, so the quicker you
can free it from the
grass, the better off you
will be.
Those are just a few of
the techniques I try to
follow when the condi-
tions are windy. Like I
stated earlier, this is my
least favorite condition
to fish in. I would rather


fish in the rain than fish
in the wind. But you
don't get to choose your
ideal day. You take what
Mother Nature has to
offer and go from there.
It's the decisions you
make in those condi-


tions that often deter-
mine what kind of day
you will have.

Just Mollie and me and gator makes three


A little over a year
ago, we acquired a
ew family member
whose name is Mollie.
Those who know beagles
will know how they can
steal your heart with their
soft brown eyes that can
go from mischievous to
loving to sad and back
again in the time it takes
to say, "Mollie, please sit
and stay!"
At 18 months of age,
she is still what one might
call a high-energy com-
panion. She can carve a
turn on the lawn like an
Olympic skater on ice,
and if she happens to
catch an interesting scent
in the process, she can
change directions faster
than a democrat checking
the latest polls.
Late Tuesday afternoon,
Mollie and I clambered
aboard my 12-foot alu-
minum boat for our cus-


Joe
Steph
READERS WRITE

tomary trip up the creek
above Harbour Heights to
her favorite spot. There
we can land on shore and
climb a small embank-
ment to a lovely hum-
mock of high ground ris-
ing above a labyrinth of
tidal streams. We can hike
and explore among oaks,
pines, cabbage palms and
briar patches and of
course, the place is full of
the most delightful smells
imaginable.
Our usual landing spot,
next to a small oak tree
for tying off the dinghy,
had a small mud bank
perhaps two feet high,
just about even with the
bow of the small boat.


The vegetation there had
become denser during
the past few days. Neither
of us had seen (or
smelled) anything as I
eased off the throttle and
killed the engine. Just as I
stood to move forward
and tie off, there was a
great crashing of under-
brush followed immedi-
ately by a cacophony of
sound as a fast-moving
reptile slammed against .
aluminum. Not the alu-
minum on the outside of
the boat, but inside! A
quick glance confirmed
the presence of a gator
somewhat more than half
as long as my boat, his
snout having made defi-
nite contact with my left
ankle. The next part of the
story is a bit of a blur.
Mollie and I decided if the
gator wanted the boat, he
could have it with our
blessing. As I did a back


flip into the creek off the
starboard side, I caught a
glimpse of Mollie leaping
ashore off the bow.
Mollie was running in
circles on the bank setting
up a raucous chorus of
baying and howling as I
peeked cautiously over
the rail of the now-empty
dinghy before climbing
back aboard. My brand
new walkie-talkie was
soaked and ruined; my
ankle was beginning to
throb with a small scrape
and a bruise which will be
my souvenir of the adven-
ture for a few days yet to
come.
When the racing of our
hearts had slowed some,
it was easy to piece
together what had hap-
pened. Our landing, diag-
onal to the creek bank,
had placed the forward
port side of the boat
almost level with a dense


patch of sedge grass and
other vegetation, exposed
to the warm late after-
noon sun. There I could
clearly see a hollowed-out
area where Mr. Gator had
no doubt been enjoying a
nap, concealed in the
underbrush. Upon being
rudely awakened, his
shortest path to the water
.was now through bur
boat, such egress being
momentarily blocked by
my ankle and the bulk-
head forming the aft seat
in the boat. It was during
those brief moments
when all the thrashing
about occurred and when
Mollie and I executed our
own egress from the sud-
denly-crowded watercraft.
It was only after several
minutes of using the
calmest and most reas-'
suring voice I could
muster that I was able to
convince Mollie to come


aboard for the trip back
home, as the image (and
smell) of our unexpected
shipmate was still/a bit
overpowering.
Mollie lives with her
family on the Peace River
near Charlotte Harbor, an
estuarine paradise still
teeming with birds and
other sea and land critters
- including alligators,
which are frequent visi-
tors. Small, unwary dogs
are often favorite prey of
gators. I am certain that
Mollie will no longer be
among the unwary ones.

Whatever it is,


'Dat a good-eatin' fish'


J am not much for
retaining memoirs, but
I found a picture in my
underwear drawer dated
Feb. 20, 2001. That day
marked my first success-
ful attempt at fishing in
the ocean. The picture
shows me standing on
the famous pier in Myrtle
Beach, SC, holding a fish.
I was still sporting a full
beard'- or maybe I was
just unwashed after a
long haul in the. RV But
there is no mistaking the
delirious grin on my mug.
Of course, that was the
end of the adventure.
You'll want to hear the
whole story. At least, I
hope you do.
The fact is I had no
clue about how to catch a
fish from a pier. I got my
first fishing gear and
angling advice from a
nine-earring clerk at a
convenience store. The
rod and reel were top
flight. In fact, I think that

"Top Flight" a real bar-
gain for around $19. Bait-
wise, my gothic mentor
sold me something that
looked like frozen enchi-
ladas. He also recom-
mended a hat to protect
my virgin white neck.
The pier was crowded,
but I managed to squeeze
myself between a couple
of regulars. I knew they
were regulars because
they were laid back to the
point of snoozing. I on the


other hand, was standing Johnny, who intro-
tippy-toed on the pier rail duced himself as I set

sunglasses and a never-
'ending cigarette hanging
from his lip. On my left,
was a big lady balanced
on a wooden stool read-


ing a National Enquirer. I
said hello, but all she did
was give me a grunt in
recognition.
I was a little self-con-
scious (a little?). This was
all new territory for me.
Golf was still my chosen
recreation. And now that
I was heading south for-
ever, where the greens
weren't frozen ninety
percent of the year, I
believed a stick and a
ball would grant me all
the recreational satisfac-
tion I would ever need.
But I was wrong. Not that
my enthusiasm for fish-
ing started from, well,
the start.
You see, I wasn't there
at the start. When that
first fish hit my bait 30
feet down in the crashing
surf, I was in the Satellite
toilet at the end of the
pier. When I emerged, my
new buddy Johnny was

Approaching cold front gets big fish feeding


A s I write this week's
fishing column, the
A leading edge of the
biggest cold front of the
year has passed over-
head. From the looks of
it, this major chilly blast
will affect the fishing well
into early next week.
Yesterday, as the cold
front entered into the
northern portions of the
Gulf of Mexico, the fish-
ing action west of Venice
on the Gulf's waters was
as good as expected. It's
normal for fish to feed
ahead of an approach-
ing cold front, and feed
they did.
Capt. Ed Johnson was
running the charterboat
"Legacy" for me and
reported in with a great
day of fishing. Along with
the usual catch of
grouper and snapper, his
clients had bragging
rights with the fish of the
day being an 85-pound
greater amberjack. That's


OFFSHORE GULF FISHING My brothers and I used
to fish on the Manatee
River whenever we could.
Back in those days, there
seemed to be a lot more

loaded with them. At the
mouth of the river, there's

Catch some fish any


This is the time of year
when sight fishing is
at its best low,
clear water conditions.
Poling along a crystal-
clear flat hunting for red-
fish or laid-up snook
warming themselves in
the shallows is a classic
form of fly fishing, and
one most of us relish. But
this is also the time of year
when it can be tough
because of the very same
conditions.
The challenge is getting
the fly to a fish without
scaring the daylights out
of it. it requires a

sentation and on top of
all that, a fair measure of
luck is needed. Sure, there
are times when fishing is'
actually easy, but the reali-
ty of it is those times are
rare. The clear, shallow

Approach too closely and
they'll look at you as if
you're an alien and head

extremely wary and
demand we be on top of
our game in order to be
successful.
These conditions can

most of us and nearly
impossible for the begin-
ner. The abdity to make

is an option.
Go out and catch some
fish any fish. Forget the
classic fly fishing situa-
tions for a while and posi-
tion yourself to be suc-
cessful. My theory is that
it's better to catch fish at
some point during the day,
no matter what kind of
fish, than it is to not catch
any. I've never been a fish
snob you know, the
kind of fly fisherman who
makes disparaging
remarks about any fish
other than the current
'glamour' fish. While my
favorite fish to catch is tar-
pon, I enjoy them all. OK,
so maybe sail cats might
not e\acdyi fit into the
enjo\lment category. I
don't mind spending part
of any day catching trout,
ladyfish or jacks as long
as my tod is bent I'm

although it may be a latent
trait yet to be realized. It's
time to come out of the
closet and admit to all that
it's more fun catching fish
than making excuses for a
fishless day. I say this
because I've been party to
this "outing" on many
occasions with clients. I've
had clients change plans
mid-stream, so'to speak,
once they started catching
non-glamour species.
Two guys from
Pennsylvania come to
mind to illustrate my
point. They booked three
days of fishing and des-
perately wanted to catch
at least one tarpon, redfish
and snook. They were new
to saltwater fly fishing but
very experienced in the
freshwater arena. We
spent the first day fishing
for tarpon in the morning
and then poled the man-
groves in search of redfish
and snook. They soon dis-
covered that tarpon were a
little too big for their tastes
(I honestly believe these
large silver kings scared
them) and casting into the
bushes for reds and snook
taxed their limited casting
abilities. Oh, they had
good shots, and even
hooked some fish, but I
could tell that they weren't
exactly into it a bad
case of misplaced expecta-
tions.
Late into the first day,
one asked if there were
other fish they might
catch. So off we went to a
trout flat. They had a ball
catching small and medi-
um-sized trout one
after another. The next day
saw them forgo the tar-
pon, snook and redfish to
catch more trout. We then
hit an area that held rela-
tively large ladyfish and
that was that. For the
remainder of that day -
and all of the next that's
all they wanted to do. They
were having so much fun
with ladyfish I couldn't
convince them to do any-
thing else. To top it off,
one guy hooked a tarpon


Dave Gerdel made
this ladvyfish his fly 2-
rod "first hish P:

in the 70-pound class on
his 7-weight outfit. The
bottom line: They were as
pleased as could be with
their trip.
Many other clients have
done similar things when
fishing got slow. "Let's go
catch some fish, any fish,"
is a common request. I'm
at the point where I spend
at least an hour or so
'catching fish, any fish' no
matter how good or slow
the fishing is. And more
often than not, we end up
spending considerably
more time doing so than
planned.
It's simply fun. A break
from the technical aspects
of the sport is welcomed.
The pressure of having to
making long accurate
casts to wary fish is put
aside for an hour or so and
a chance to simply fish
without stress makes it
fun. Besides, some sur-
prising catches are very
often the byproduct. We've
taken tarpon, permit,
cobia, pompano, bluefish,
occasional monster snook,
huge jacks and a host of

other species that wouldn't
have normally been part
of our catch by just blind
fishing deeper waters with
sink-tip lines. And that's
part of why it so much fun
you never really know
what you'll catch. Sure,
trout make up most of the
catch, but when that oddi-
ty comes along there's an
innate sense of accom-
plishment that somehow
makes the day.
Right now, there are
plenty of trout to be found
on the typical broken bot-
tom grass flats to keep
nearly anyone's rod bent.
Ladyfish and jacks are
roaming the deeper canals
and pockets and they'll
surely put a smile on a
novice's face. When you've
had your fill and feel con-
fident, attempt the classic
shallow water game, if for
nothing else than a reality
check. Who knows the
gained confidence might
enable you to make that
technical cast to a laid-up
snook or sunning redfish.
Wouldn't that be the icing
on the cake?


RECORD
From page 7

fish which may not be
kept, including those
caught during a closed
season or those fish, such
as Goliath grouper, which
are protected in Florida
waters and may never be
harvested. The first rule of
interest states: "The catch
must not be at variance
with any laws or regula-
tions governing the
species or the waters in
which it was caught." This
means that you can't
break the law while mak-
ing a record catch. This is
a bit more complicated
than it sounds when you
consider that IGFA
receives record applica-
tions from all over the
world applications that
in many cases may be for
species that fall under dra-
matically different rules
depending on the country
they are caught in. In this
respect, it may seem like
Florida anglers are at a
disadvantage to anglers
from other regions or
nations that do not have
such strict fishing rules,
rules which often require
the release of trophy-sized
fish due to maximum size
limits or closed seasons.


EATIN'
From page 16
waving frantically with
one hand. In his other
hand, was my cheapo rig-
with the rod tip bent pre-
cariously past 90 degrees.
I didn't exactly run
down the pier, but I
arrived just in time. Just in
time, because while
Johnny was doing battle
with a fish on my line, he
got a strike on his own
pole 10 feet down the
pier. He told me to grab
his rod. Everything could
have gone smoothly from
that point, except his
spinning reel was set up
for right-handed retrieval
- opposite from mine.
Johnny made a quick
decision. He walked the
still fighting fish down to
me and we traded rods in
one of those hand-offs


The other rule that
comes into play is a guide-
line regarding the meth-
ods used to weigh poten-
tial record catches. The
pertinent verbiage is:
"Fish weighed only at sea
or on other bodies of
water will not be accept-
ed." IGFA wants fish
weighed on land or from a
fixed structure and will
not accept weight mea-
surements made on boats,
presumably because of
the difficulty in achieving
an accurate measurement
on a moving platform
such as on a boat at sea.
There is one more bit of
information which is
needed to answer the
question about potential
records for oversized fish
in Florida, and this bit of
wisdom comes from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation
Commission. The FWC
produced rules that pro-
hibit the possession of
certain oversized, out-of-
season or protected
species. Possessing any of
these fish would be illegal,
and therefore would dis-
qualify any such fish from
record consideration by
the IGFA. However, all is
not lost for seekers of
records for these fish,
because the FWC will


that you don't want to pflt
too much thought into. I
am also grateful that his
fish then proceeded to
break the connections
because I needed his full
attention.
I was fighting not only
the fish, but my instinct to
continually reel. The
screeching noise emanat-
ing from the drag terrified
me. My neighbor reached
over my hands and
adjusted it. Now I love the
sound of a screaming
drag more than smacking
a Titleist in a sand trap.
Johnny told me to take
a breath and to just try
and keep the fish from
circling under the pier. I
don't need to describe th-
battle; we'll skip ahead
here to actually getting
the fish up onto the pier
(which was quite an oper-
ation). I stood and stared
at this amazing marine

allow you to photograph,
measure, weigh and then
release these fish if it is
done as quickly as possi-
ble, and if it is done in the
same place where the fish
was caught. If a fish is
transported from the
point of capture to any-
where else, no matter how
nearby, then that fish is
deemed to have been pos-
sessed by the angler.
Considering the two
IGFA rules (no illegal fish
allowed, and no weights
accepted from boats) and
the FWC prohibition
against transporting over-
sized, protected or out-of-
season fish, it becomes


animal. Striking colors,
heavier than.anything I
have ever pulled from the-
water except maybe a wet
dog. This finny creature
looked like it came out of
a giant aquarium.
I pointed to the flop-
ping fish and asked,
"What kind is this?"
Johnny said. "It's ahead."
'A head," I asked in Seuss-
like manner. "Yeah it's a
head." "Oh, a head ... a
head ... no, Johnny, I don't
mean just the top part."
He grinned at me. "The
full name is sheepshead,
but around here we call
them head."
The woman on the
stool suddenly came alive.
"Dat ain't no head Johnny,
data drum." "Oh", said
me, "a drum a drum?"
Johnny responded before
I had a chance to ask
more questions. "Shut up
old woman, you can't


clear that anglers who fish
from shore can be award-
ed records for released
fish if the angler is pre-
pared in advance with a
tape measure, a certifiable
scale and a camera at the
time and place of capture.
As long as the fish is mea-
sured, weighed, pho-
tographed and released at
the same place and as
quickly as possible, no
FWC rules have been vio-
lated and the IGFA folks
will be happy. This is more
than just a theoretical
possibility since a perusal
of the record book shows
that quite a few of the cur-
rent snook records in vari-


even see your shoes. This
Minnesota boy caught
himself a nice head, don't
you go confusion' him." I
had somehow started an
origin of the species argu-
ment.
The two never really did
agree on what kind of fish
it was. And there was a
brief time period when I
thought they might start
swinging at each other.
But eventually, my
angling counterparts set-
tied down. I asked Johnny.
to take my picture with
my new digital camera -
the camera I would drop
overboard six weeks later
on a party boat in the
Keys. BuI that's another
story.
Any wvay. I knew my wife
would not appreciate me
dragging a fish into the
RV especially since I had
never (that's right-
never) cleaned a fish


ous line classes on both
conventional and fly tack-
le were set during the
closed season, and some
of them are held by fish
which would most likely
have been oversized.
Boaters have a problem,
since IGFA won't accept
weights taken on boats. It
may be possible to hook a
fish from a boat, then
beach the boat and fight
and land the fish from
shore. Boaters fishing
miles from shore are pret-
ty much out of luck when
it comes to these types of
records. Idid hear about
an angler who had worked
out a plan to beat some of
the Goliath grouper
records by catchingthem
in the channel going into
Everglades City and
weighing them from a
scale suspended from a
channel marker where he
,,was fishing, but I never
heard how far he got with
his plans.

before in my entire life. So
I started to toss the 'what-
ever it was' over the rail.
But the lady jumped from
her stool and said, "What
is you, a dummy? Dat a
good eating' fish. Gimme
dat fish." So I did.
As the tide went out,
everybody on my end of
the pier packed up to
leave. In low tones I talked
to Johnny as we headed
back to our cars. I'm a
Midwestern boy and
unlike New Yorkers, we
fear contention, so I apol-
ogized for igniting the fish
fight on the pier. Johnny
laughed, slapped me on
the back and told me not
to worry about it. "That
woman just loves making'
trouble. I should know;
we used to be married."
Huh fishing together to
get past any latent antag-
onism. Bet Dr. Phil hasn't
thought of that therapy.

Shallow water: Pole or troll? A


B because I enjoy
hunting tor fish,
exploring skinny
water as deep in the
backcountry as possible
and fishing artificial
with light tackle, I use
.my push pole extensive-
ly. I am also fly fishing
more, and poling pro-
vides the necessary
stealth. It also keeps my
boat's layout simple \ilth
an uncluttered front
deck. I did eventually
add a trolling motor, but
the decision \was difficult
because I wanted to
keep the boat clean, sim-
ple and still functional.
With all this in mind, I
thought I'd take a look at
the pros and cons,
including the most
effective situations for
each when to pole
and when to toll. First
of all, there is no doubt
most inshoie angles
consider a tolling motor
an indispensable tool.
When the wind is push-
ing your boat around -
which is most of the
time it's a great tool to
help keep you on course.
Whether you're trying to
effectively work a man-
grove shoreline or drift a
specific pattern over a
flat, a good trolling
motor will push through
most daily breezes. The
same can be done by
poling, but it's pretty dif-
ficult especially in the
wind. Also, if you plan to
fish by yourself, you will
get to make a lot more
casts if you fish with a
trolling motor. A trolling
motor also allows all
anglers on the boat to
have an opportunity to
fish. And you know what
they say you can't
catch fish if your lure
isn't in the water.
Anytime you want to
fish deeper water, a
trolling motor is hard to
beat. Some great appli-'
cations include fishing
docks within a canal sys-
tem, deeper cuts ':
between flats, and espe-
cially tarpon on the
beach. And even if you
do pole a lot, a trolling

reason is simple -
stealth. Believe it or
the noise and vibra

motor are enough t

instant anchor that \\ill
provide the angler on

tional shots at sighted
fish. Without an addi-
tional motor on the
tront deck, my boat
requires fewer batteries,
e needs less maintenance
and is just a simpler la\-
out that provides great
fly fishing opp i tunitie.
Conversely \\-hen the
ive wind is blowing, poling
ff can be downright diffi-
uiet- cult. Undet these condi-
e you tions all you can do is
ng. tiy to :et up in a direc-
if tion to pole vith the
our wind. Or, just let the
\ill wind push you and then
in use yout push pole to
actually steer the boat.
f In a iorist-case scenario.
n- you may have to pick

tions do go out alone, you'll
have to split your time
o between poling and fish-
ing. Plus if you go out
ater with a buddy, .nely one
least angler will be able to
der fish at a time.
This is not a black-
ke a and-white issue. There
this are variables that have
well to be considered. For

got- be left with the bracket
hin a on the casting platform,.
e but that's better than an

ore option is that you cani

he weekend of
| February I and 12
L was another regatta
weekend for the sailing
center trying to get fully
opened and up and run-
ning. Scheduled for
December, a delay in the
completion of the build-
ing stalled the event until
January, but it was once
again delayed-- the
February weekend
seemed to be as good a
time as any. It is a warm-
up for the International
Master's Championship in
March on the east coast of
Florida. This is to be a.
yearly event here for
Valentine's weekend. Next
year, the International
Master's Championship
Regatta is on the schedule
for the second weekend of
March at the sailing cen-
ter. That will give us two
back-to-back regattas and
then the Leukemia Cup to
follow in April.
The weather saw fit to
prove as much a challenge
as the sailing competition.
The sailing center not
being able to be in the
building yet and weather
projections of intense cold
with high winds meant
the sailors would be wet
and cold when coming in
and need a warm place to
change after racing. With
proper consideration of
the conditions, sailors'
safety and the need of a
safe basin to launch and
prepare boats for compe-
tition, there where many
last-minute changes to
take place. The registra-
tion took place at the sail-
ing center atthe Bayfront
and then things had to be
moved over to the beach
complex in Port Charlotte.
Because of the last-
minute changes, we apol-
ogize to those who
showed up to watch from
the shores of Punta Gorda
since it all took place off
the shores of Grassy Point
on Alligator Bay. There the
sailors had to pay to park,

Peck

so the fee for the regaria
had to be reduced to cover
the cost for those \\ho
chose to launch from the
beach. They had options
.to launch from many
places, but with the wind.
between 15-20 knots and
forecast to 30, most chose
the safety of the basin at
the beach complex.
On Saturday, the races
were postponed a few
minutes to give sailors a
chance to make up for lost
time after the big move
had to take place. The first
start was a general recall
due mostly to things being
slightly confused from the
move. It was OK, though,
because it took the edge '
off things. The restart
went well with only one of
the competitors pushing
to the course side of the
line at the horn. He would
be the last of 13 boats to
get a legal start, but was
able to climb all the way
back up to a fifth-place
finish in that race. With
the wind blowing steadily
above 15 knots, there was
a lot of action on the
course and a lot of chang-
ing of positions. The sec- "
ond race saw a competitor
who was in second place
turn over on the last lee-
ward mark before the fin-
ish and fall to last place
and then recover to the
10th-place finish on that
last leg. There were several,
similar situations that
took place during the
regatta. Each start and fin-
ish was extremely close.
The sailing center
would like to thank all
those who helped in mak-
ing this regatta a success
and dealing with all the.
changes so well to make it
a joy to all.
The finishes were as fol-


lows: First place went to
Joe Blouin who led most
of the races. Second place
went to Danny Escobar.
Third and fourth places
were a tie in total points,
but the tie-breaker went
to Paul Strauley for com-
ing in ahead of the fourth-
place winner more times.
The fourth place went to
Rick Pantall outstand-
ing work when one con-
siders I called him over
early twice and he had to
fight back through the
pack. Fifth and sixth place
were also a tie, with the
tie-breaker going to Jim
Somers as he beat John
Fletcher in the last race
tie-breaker. Sunday's races
were cancelled due to
extremely low tempera-
tures and high winds pre-
dicted for the morning
, hours.
We are now in the plan-
ning stages for the
International Regatta next
year, in which we expect
more than 70 competitors'
from several countries.
This will most likely
involve 100 or more peo-
ple. The sailing center
hopes to bring such activi-
ties close to shore so the
public can see the events
and get involved. We are
trying to make these
regattas part of the public
as much as possible,
besides being for the com-
petitors. We are looking
for the right location for
this regatta next year and
have our sights on a cou-
ple of spots that can han-
dle the possible onshore
observers with ample
launching and storage
area for such an event.
The sailing center will
open for membership
when the building is com-
pleted. Those who have
been checking with us are
asked to continue so we
can get in touch with you
as soon as the building
opens. Please call (941)
627-6650 and leave infor-
mation so we can record it.

'57 Chevy could be


a match made in heaven


Nokomis home once featured on HGTV for its
restoration is new on the rural estate market.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

The only thing missing from a
home in the East Nokomis Historic
District is a '57 Chevy.
Or perhaps a Nash rambler
would be a better choice as the
house is located on Nash Avenue.
Carefully restored by its present
owner and recently listed for sale by
Michael Saunders Realtor Sherrey
Welch, the house -is true to its lin-
eage. That distinction led to the
home being featured on HGTV
Present owner Nancy Eaton,
author of "Your Vintage Wedding,"
(Harper ReSource div. of Harper
Collins, hardcover, $27) is a local his-
torian who lives in a neighboring
house, and is a member of the
Nokomis Historical Society.
The wedding book was published
in 2001. It featured 20th century
weddings from the 1920s to the
1950s. The house became the per-
fect follow-up to this young lady
who is so interested in history and
historical items be they wedding
dresses or homes.
The same painstaking research
that went into the book went into
the restoration of the house that was
built in 1955 on Nash Avenue.
Eaton has done the research that
would allow the house to be placed
on the local historical register.
But more than that. she has done
her homework on what needed to
be done to turn the clock back on
this charmer of a house, while allow-
ing it to function like a newer house.
Armed with vintage photos of
Venice, Nokomis and Sarasota, circa
the 1950s, Eaton set out to return the
Key West-style house to the era in


which it had been built. Built in
1955, the home's living.quarters are
on the second floor. Jalousie win-
dows bring fresh breezes and tree-
top views into the house, which fea-
tures wood paneled walls and hard-
wood floors.
The home's existing bathroom
had burgundy fixtures and wall tile
that was perfect for the era but the
floor was in need of work. Eaton
found color-coordinated small tiles
and fashioned a period-correct floor
of burgundy and white tiles. For the
mirror above the sink she found a
reverse painted glass mirror with the
perfect design for a Florida house of
the 1950s flamingos.
She created a second bath in
space that once was a sun porch off
the former living room.,
The former living room became
the home's new 14-foot by 16-foot
master bedroom by camouflaging
the former main entrance door and
directing people through a second
doorway at the top of the steps" The
flooring of the new entrance hall is
tile with a grout area that is at least
an inch wide although it it is not
filed in with grout. Instead, Eaton
added ceramic leaf-shaped tiles to
the grout space and then added the
grout, making the floor yet another
work. of art. To cover the wall where
the original entrance door remains,
she used woven bamboo fabric like
that used in the 1950s era roll-up
blinds. A picture"'on'the wall'and a
table for catching keys and mail
complete the entry space.
For the new master bath, Eaton
haunted plumbing stores until she
found a 1950s era sink and toilet in a
sunny yellow. She set the sink into a.
counter top that she finished with

mosaic tile work, featuring hibiscus
flowers. A yellow florist vase com-
pletes the setting of the new 1950s
bathroom.
For the second bedroom. Eaton
found a vintage brass bed but paint-
ed to bring it from its original Lime to
that of the 50s. The third bedroom
functions more as a home office or
den.
Dating to the 1950s also is a cedar
closet, original to the house and still
retaining its cedar aroma.
Eaton refinished the flooring
throughout the house, which has
been featured on HGTV because of
the renovation work she accom-
plished.
New ceiling fans hearken back to
the '50s, as do the light fixtures. One,
in the guest bedroom, was made
from a wood bowl. The ceiling fan in
the living room replicates palm
fronds but is wood-hued to coordi-
nate with other period-appropriate
fans in the house. A stone-clad fire-
place is a focal point of the living
room and framed by two large case-
inent windows. The home's wide
roof overhang allows one to remain
high and dry on a rainy day while
opening all the windows to take
advantage of cooling breezes. Eaton


found Roman shades made from
rattan at Lowe's. Although new, they
look as though they date to the
1950s.
Vintage rattan upholstered furni-
ture is featured in the 15-foot by 15-
foot living room with more rattan
furniture in the enclosed upper
porch. For the living roomn.coffee
table, which also is bamboo and
woven rattan, Eaton made color
copies of vintage tourist brochures
for this area. Artfully arranging the
colored brochures on the table top,
she covered them with a sheet of
glass for protection.
Even the fabrics are of the period,
carefully tracked down in vintage-
stores such as those along Miami
Avenue, where 'she found many
items, including an old-fashioned
oscillating fan, dishes and even a
chrome toaster.
The dining table is set with vin-
tage china and glassware and anoth-
er 1950s-era flower vase works as a
centerpiece.
Open to the living area is the up-
to-date kitchen with its white cabi-
nets, which -include some class-
fronted upper cabinets. The counter
top is black to coordinate with the
new electric range with its black


front.
Interior walls are light and airy.
The home's exterior is the same
pale green that turned up on many
cars of the era. Beneath the eaves,
she used a color that reminds one of
a flamingo that has eaten a diet rich
in shrimp. The more shrimp a
flamingo eats, the stronger the
shrimp color of the birds.
Eaton's attention to detail knows
no bounds. Nor is it without a sense
of humor.
Finding a knothole in one of the
floor boards leading up the staircase
to the home's entrance, the histori-
an-turned designer took the artistic
approach she placed an amber-
hued glass bead in the hole, where it
sparkles for all to see.
The 1,1480-square-foot. three-
bedroom, two-bath house is listed
for sale at $389,000 and can be seen
by appointment.
Eaton's next project' will be the
restoration of three cottages that
once resided at the Eagle Point Club.
Eaton moved them to an adjoining
property on Nash Avenue this past
year.
For an appointment to see the
'50s-era house at 817 Nash Ave. in
Nokomis, callWelch at 485-5421.


Period windows and wood ceiling are the perfect backdrop for '50s furniture
and dishes, including the ceramic flower vase.


French doors lead from the master bedroom to the newly installed '50s
bathroom, with its authentic yellow fixtures and a new mosaic tile sink sur-
round.


Nothing says 1950 more than the color of the tile and fixtures in the bathroom.

SVCA is abuzz with deadlines


ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST

A wonderful thing about
the season is that the part-
time residents in our South
Venice community are here
and raring to get into events
and activities.
I just love their enthusiasm
and donation of time, but our
year-round South Venice
Civic Association committee
chairmen have to hustle to
take advantage of their ener-
gy.
For instance, the SVCA met
the deadline of Feb. 13 to file a
grant application through the
Sarasota County Neighbor-
hood Grant program. The
grant allows for $12 per hour
toward volunteer work and
the committee collected
6,336 hours by signing up
more than 50 volunteers.
We hope to replace the
windows in the community,
center before our part-timers
leave for the summer.
March 1 will kick off the
annual membership drive
with a goal of signing up 200
new members within the next
two months. The committee
has been working feverishly
to prepare the addresses and
packets for hand delivery to
new and nonmembers.


It took countless hours to
get the teams ready to hit the
streets. (Wouldn't it be great if
the newcomers just came to
us in the first place.)
Our quest to put up ca-
banas on our beach after last
year's hurricanes destroyed
the pavilion is an exercise in
patience because there is no
deadline. Surveyors have
been dragging their feet for
more than a year now and we
keep giving them deadlines,
but without success.
For me, the deadline to
edit our monthly newsletter
and e-mail it to the publisher
has to wait for everyone's arti-
cles to come in. This month
was especially difficult be-
cause the deadline for articles
was the 20th, the same day as
our monthly meeting, where I
needed the minutes the same
day and we had a short
month on top of it.
My deadline to submit this
article to the Gondolier Sun
for the Friday edition is Tues-
day evening. Did I make it?
Maybe it would ease the
pain if there were a more
pleasant word than "dead-
line."
Tomorrow's deadline to
enjoy a delicious pancake
breakfast is 8-11 a.m. at the
South Venice Community
Center, 720 Alligator Drive, $5
per person, open to the pub-
lic.

Association development

Writer launches child ren's book series


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER

Diana Donlon spread the
word to children all over
Michigan and the Midwest,
and now she wants to spread
it to children throughout
Florida andathe Southeast -
or anywhere it will travel, for
that matter.
"I believe that every person
has at least one gift. They
could have more, but every
person has at least one, and it
is each person's job in life to
figure out what that gift is and
share it with the world,"
Donlon said.
And Donlon does, in a
unique way.
When she was in elemen-
tary school, her mother gave
her a plaque she still cherish-
es today. She lives by the mes-
sage and passes it on to oth-
ers: "What you are is your gift
from God. What you give back
is your gift to God."
Under her pen name,
Diane Youngblood Donlon,
she has developed an award-
winning series of interactive
children's books, called "Miss
Diane's Ollykazoo Adventure
Series."
The titles include "BooMP-
Bop;" "Tippee Tippee Tiptoe;"
"Creep, Sleep, Pounce and
Peek ... Like a Cat;" and
"Balancing on a Rock," which
is an iParenting Media Award
winner.
"Tippee Tippee Tiptoes"
also received a 2005 Teacher's
Choice Award.,
Donlon, now an area resi-
dent, is on the threshold of
launching her books in here.
The books include a CD that
can inspire imagination and
creative movement in chil-
dren,
S"Theideais, it's'a theatrial
musical experience written in
a storybook," Donlon said.
She will tour the area intro-
ducing the books to schools,
school boards, teachers con-
ferences and at art and book
festivals.
Youngauthors
Donlon is a little surprised
at her new audience so far.


Rotonda children's book author Diane "Miss Diane" Donlon has developed an award-winning

She said she enjoys the
feedback she gets from chil-

didn't think they had the abil-
ity to write.
Many say, "I never thought
I had so many ideas," and "I i
never knew I could write a

Sarasota's 'Citizen of the Year'


STAFF REPORT
The Sarasota Coalition on
Substance Abuse (SCoSA) will
honor Sarasota County resi-
dent and practicing attorney
Robert P Rosin as its Citizen
of the Year at its first Sarasota
Shining Stars Award and
Recognition Banquet. Rosin
will be named at the event
Feb. 28 at the Sarasota Mu-
nicipal Auditorium. Florida
State University Head Foot-
ball Coach Bobby Bowden
will be on hand for the award
and will deliver the event's
key-note address.
Rosin was selected by the
award committee for his
manyyears as a distinguished,
leader, philanthropist and

parent. "Selecting one indi-


vidual who shines above the
rest is never an easy task,"
said Curt Lavarello, executive
director for the coalition. "Yet,
it is clearly evident that
Robert exemplifies the term
'role model' and is so very
deserving of this honor," con-
tinued Lavarello.
Rosin has volunteered
more than eight years as a
scout master, donated count-
less hours with the United
Way and recently served as
volunteer chair of the
Sarasota County United Jew-
ish 'Appeal. His pro-bono
work as an attorney has
assisted poorer families ac-
quire legal assistance and in
one case, resulted in the
reunification of a mother with


her children.
"I cannot think of a more
deserving family man than
Robert P Rosin," stated David
Striplin, chair for the awards
event, and vice-president of
investments with GunnAllen
Financial, in Sarasota. "Bob's
good deeds are countless,
and his love for this commu-
nity stands out," continued
Striplin.
Also being honored at the
event are several Sarasota
County high school students,
who will be presented with
$1,000 scholarships toward
their college tuition by the
coalition. Tickets remain
available for the banquet by
calling 922-7233 or online at
SCOSA.org.


Turners join Give Something Back

International to build schools in Thailand


STAFF REPORT
The Give Something Back
International Foundation is
pleased to announce that
Roscoe Turner and Jan Turn-
er have joined the organiza-
tion as Vice Presidents of
Operations and will lead the
new "Rural Thai School" pro-
jects for the Foundation.
Roscoe and Jan live in
Venice, Fla.; have five chil-
dren, 11 grandchildren and
one great-grandchild. They
have been enjoying their
retirement by making trips to
Thailand and helping the
school children there. They
have made six trips and com-
pleted five school projects,


carried 27 suitcases of donat-
ed school supplies and books
arid three kits of medical sup-
plies. They have spent
$19,000 for school building
material and associated costs
for construction ($14,000
from donations and $5,000
from their own pockets). So
far eight volunteers have paid
their own expenses and
joined them in their work in
Thailand.
Since March, 2004, Ros-
coe's Thai Projects (RTP) has
completed projects in four
separate rural schools in
Thailand: 1) In Tanote: They
built a tiled covered play
area/lunchroom/community
center with a stage for school


productions and a kitchen.
Because of the attention this
school received they got two
new teachers, one for com-
puters and an English
teacher. 2) In Sutuk: They
built a library and three class-
rooms including books
and classroom furniture. This
school got a new English
teacher and they donated
medical supplies worth
$26,000 to the local hospital.
3) In Phuket: They painted
and repaired a school and
classroom furniture. They

Barley gra:




drink to he


ANGELA BIRDSONG
1 L.i 4 Jrs O1 :S I


If taking vitamins in the
form of pills is just not your
strong suit consider adding
one supplemental drink to
your diet. Barley grass is one
of the green grasses the
only vegetation on the Earth
that can supply sole nutri-
tional support from birth to
old age. Barley has served as a
food staple in most cultures.
The use of barley for food and
medicinal purposes dates
back to antiquity. Agronom-
ists place this ancient cereal
grass as being cultivated as
early as 7000 BC. Roman glad-
iators ate barley for strength
and stamina. In the West, it
was first known for the barley
grain it produces.
Grasses belong to the
Gramineae family, which pro-
vides all the world's cereals
and most of the world's sugar.
These cereal grasses, along
with spirulina, chlorella, oat
grass and alfalfa, are some-
Stimes referred to as "green
-foods." Wheat grass' and bar-
ley grass are rih sourcess of
chlorophyll.
Chlorophyll is the mole-
cule that absorbs sunlight and
uses its energy to synthesize
carbohydrates from C02 and
water. This process is known
as photosynthesis and is the
basis for sustaining the life
processes of all-plants. Since
animals and humans obtain
their food supply by eating
plants, photosynthesis can be
said to be the source of our
life also.
Barley grass is high in calci-

um, iron, all the essential
amino acids, vitamin C, the
flavonoids, vitamin B-12 and
many minerals, plus en-
zymes. Barley grass is good
for stomach and duodenum
disorders and for pancreatitis,
and is an ideal anti-in-
flammatory substance.
Astounding amounts of
vitamins and minerals are
found in green barley leaves.
The leaves have an ability to
absorb nutrients from the
soil. When barley leaves are
12-14 inches high, they con-
tain many vitamins, minerals
and proteins necessary for
the human diet, including
chlorophyll.
The nutrients in barley
grass are easily assimilated
throughout the digestive
tract. They include potassi-
um, calcium, magnesium,
iron, copper, phosphorus,,
manganese, zinc, beta car-
otene, B1, B2, B6, C, folic acid
and pantothenic acid. Green
barley juice contains 11 times
the calcium in cows' milk,
nearly five times the iron in
spinach, seven times the vita-
min C in oranges and 80 mg
of vitamin B12 per hundred
grams.
Barley grass also contains
a-glucan, a fiber also found in
oat bran and reported to
reduce cholesterol levels. The
root contains the alkaloid
"hordenine," which stimu-
lates peripheral blood circu-
lation and has been used as a
bionchodilator for bronchids.
Barley bran, like wheat bran,
is effective in protecting
against the risk of cancer.
Dr. Howard Lutz, who is
the director of the Institute of
Preventive Medicine in Wash-
ington, D.C., had this to say
about barley grass: "(Barley
grass is) one of the most
incredible products of this

decade. It improves stamina,
sexual energy and clarity of
thought. It also-improves the
texture of the skin, and heals
the dryness associated with
aging. Some people who try
grass juice find that they, just
cannot tolerate wheat grass
juice. It is extremely detoxify-
ing and makes some people
nauseous every time they
drink it. These people may
find that they can tolerate
barley grass juice."
Ya-Mei Yu and Chingmin
E. Tsai from Fu Jen University
in Taipei together with fellow
Taiwanese researchers from
China Medical College in
Taichung found in a clinical
study that supplementation
with barley grass reduced the
levels of cholesterol and oxy-
gen free radicals in the blood
of type 2 diabetics.
The authors noted that
barley grass "acts as a free rad-
ical scavenger." Particularly
noteworthy are the data
showing barley grass, taken
with vitamins C and E, more
effectively prevents the level
of free radicals than either
barley grass or the vitamins
taken alone. They concluded
that supplementation with
barley grass "in combination
with antioxidative vitamins
can reduce some major risk
factors of atherosclerosis.
This may protect type 2 dia-
betic patients from vascular
diseases."
By adding powdered bar-
ley grass to your daily glass of|
juice, your health can. be,
greatly improved. Something
to consider...

Sarasota's 'Citizen of the Year'


STAFF REPORT

The Sarasota Coalition on
Substance Abuse (SCoSA) will
honor Sarasota County resi-
dent and practicing attorney
Robert P Rosin as its Citizen
of the Year at its first Sarasota
Shining Stars Award and
Recognition Banquet. Rosin
will be named at the event
Feb. 28 at the Sarasota Mu-
nicipal Auditorium. Florida
State University Head Foot-
ball Coach Bobby Bowden
will be on hand for the award
and will deliver the event's

parent. "Selecting one indi-


vidual who shines above the
rest is never an easy task,"
said Curt Lavarello, executive
director for the coalition. "Yet,
it is clearly evident that
Robert exemplifies the term
'role model' and is so very
deserving of this honor," con-
tinued Lavarello.
Rosin has volunteered
more than eight years as a
scout master, donated count-
less hours with the United
Way and recently served as
volunteer chair of the
Sarasota County United Jew-
ish'Appeal. His pro-bono
work as an attorney has
assisted poorer families ac-
quire legal assistance and in
one case, resulted in the
reunification of a mother with


her children.
"I cannot think of a more
deserving family man than
Robert P Rosin," stated David
Striplin, chair for the awards
event, and vice-president of
investments with GunnAllen
Financial, in Sarasota. "Bob's
good deeds are countless,
and his love for this commu-
nity stands out," continued
Striplin.
Also being honored at the
event are several Sarasota
County high school students,
who will be presented with
$1,000 scholarships toward
their college tuition by the
coalition. Tickets remain
available for the banquet by
calling 922-7233 or online at

Turners join Give Something Back

International to build schools in Thailand


STAFF REPORT
The Give Something Back
International Foundation is
pleased to announce that
Roscoe Turner and Jan Turn-
er have joined the organiza-
tion as Vice Presidents of
Operations and will lead the
new "Rural Thai School" pro-
jects for the Foundation.
Roscoe and Jan live in
Venice, Fla.; have five chil-
dren, 11 grandchildren and
one great-grandchild. They
have been enjoying their
retirement by making trips to
Thailand and helping the
school children there. They
have made six trips and com-
pleted five school projects,


carried 27 suitcases of donat-
ed school supplies and books
and three kits of medical sup-
plies. They have spent
$19,000 for school building
material and associated costs
for construction ($14,000
from donations and $5,000
from their own pockets). So
far eight volunteers have paid
their own expenses and
joined them in their work in
Thailand.
Since March, 2004, Ros-
coe's Thai Projects (RTP) has
completed projects in four
separate rural schools in
Thailand: 1) In Tanote: They
built a tiled covered play
area/lunchroom/community
center with a stage for school


productions and a kitchen.
Because of the attention this
school received they got two
new teachers, one for com-
puters and an English
teacher. 2) In Sutuk: They
built a library and three class-
rooms, including books
and classroom furniture. This
school got a new English
teacher and they donated
medical supplies worth
$26,000 to the local hospital.
3) In Phuket: They painted
and repaired a school and
classroom furniture. They
also spent time building and
rebuilding houses, after the
Tsunami. 4) In Huay Khom, a
hill tribe village in north
Thailand: They built and fur-


nished a preschool, including
playground equipment. Their
work and reputation got the
attention of the government
and the village got a new
community center. RTP has

also set up a fund to provide
school lunches for one year
and provide a scholarship for
a 15-year-old orphan girl.
Medical supply kits were
given to hospitals and a local
village clinic.
GSBI welcomes Jan &
Roscoe and looks forward to
working with them to expand
the scope of work done at the
Foundation.. They are cur-
rently raising money to build
the Ban Leaw School in
northern Thailand.

Florida Studio Theatre takes


its WRITE A PLAY tour to Israel


STAFF REPORT

Staff from Florida Studio
Theatre's WRITE A PLAY tour
will travel to Tel Mond, Israel,
March 3-9 as part of a cultural
exchange program. Florida
Studio Theatre established a
connection to Tel Mond,
which is one of Sarasota's
Sister Cities, in 2001 when
four winning playwrights
traveled from Israel to Florida
for the FST's Young Play-
wrights Festival.
The WRITE A PLAY work-
shops in Tel Mond will be
similar to FST's stateside pro-
gram according to Kate Alex-
ander, FST's Associate Direc-
tor and Director of Educating,
Touring & Outreach. "We will
conduct in-class workshops
for 15-20 students. Working in
teams of two, we will take
the students from improvisa-
tion to playwriting. The work-
shops will be very similar to
what we offer our secondary
students here," says Alex-
ander. The idea to replicate
FST's WRITE A PLAY program
in Israel grew from FST's
partnership with the Sarasota
Sister Cities Association
(SSCA). SSCA is the local
chapter of Sister Cities Inter-
national: and is committed to
its mission of developing
relationships. "We have been
developing a relationship with
both SSCA and the cities inter-
nationally. Children from
Sarasota's Sister Cities started
writing and sending us plays.
The next logical step was to
send a group abroad to
encourage them in their
writing endeavors," says Alex-
ander.
"The FST exchange will
certainly help foster the
dream of President Dwight'
Eisenhower, who established
Sister Cities in 1956,' says
Linda Rosenbluth, the City
Director for Tel Mond and
Past President of SSCA. "The
,delegation trom Florida


Studio Theatre will represent
Sarasota and the United
States in our Sister City, Tel
Mond, Israel. As "citizen
diplomats" they will have a
unique opportunity to reach
beyond our community and
to connect with different cul-
tures."
Sister Cities will be an inte-
gral part of the trip, especially
when the group is in Tel
Mond. "They are really host-
ing us," says Alexander. "They
are providing housing for our
actors in local homes as well
as providing tours of the
area." Alexander hopes that
she and her fellow teams
members' experience will go
beyond influencing the chil-
dren of Tel Mond to write
plays. "We're hoping to be
influenced as well," she says.
"This program is not just to
give them our work, but to
see their work as well. To be
entrenched in their culture
and gain something from it
that we can bring back with
us."
Along with Alexander,
Richard Hopkins, Adam
Ratner and Ashley West will
be traveling to Tel Mond. The
cultural exchange between
Florida Studio Theatre and
Tel Mond will continue when
two Israeli teachers travel to
Florida in May for FST's Young
Playwrights Festival. Next
year, Alexander hopes the
cultural exchange can contin-
ue with a trip to Dunferm-
line, Scotland, another of
Sarasota's sister cities.
The WRITE A PLAY pro-
gram was launched in 1991
with the support of the Flor-
ida Arts Council and the
National Endowment for the
Arts Challenge funds. As a
part of its WRITE A PLAY
tour, FST provides in-class
workshops designed by pro-
fessional playwrights. The
workshops help elementary
and secondary students ,ex-
plore their imaginations


without boundaries or limits,
while giving them the tools
and incentives to write plays
for the Young Playwrights
Festival.
To date, the program has
worked with more than 1
million young people across
the state of Florida and
throughout the Southeastern
United States. Known as Sara-
sota's Contemporary Theatre,
Florida Studio Theatre was
founded in 1973 by Jon
Spelman. Starting out as a
small touring company, FST
traveled to places such as
migrant camps and prisons.
The company eventually set-
tled down into a permanent
home, acquiring the former
Woman's Club building, now
renamed the Keating Theatre.
In the years that followed,
Florida Studio Theatre estab-
lished itself as a major force
in American theater, present-
ing contemporary theater in
the Keating Theatre, the
Goldstein Cabaret and its
newest space, the Gompertz
Theatre.
Even with its growth, Flor-
ida Studio Theatre remains
firmly committed to making
the arts accessible and af-

fordable to a broad-based
audience. Under Richard
Hopkins, artistic director and
CEO, FST develops theater
that speaks to our living,
evolving and dynamically
changing world. As FST
grows and expands, it contin-
ues to provide audiences
with challenging, contempo-
rary drama and innovative
programs.
Florida Studio Theatre is
grateful to Sarasota Sister
Cities Association for provid-
ing matching funds for hous-
ing and to the State of Florida,
Department of State, Division
of Cultural Affairs, The Florida
Arts Council and The Nation-
;al Endowment for the Arts
for providing the funding for
IFST'strip'to'Tel Mond, Israel.

Enjoy the 'Rain' at the Venice Little Theatre


The Venice Little Theatre
is the-hottest ticket in town
this month. Any day now
there may be scalpers out
front hawking tickets.
"Always Patsy Cline" has
been sold out since before it
opened and "Singin' in the
Rain" is about as close to
being sold out (at presstime)
as possible. It might be as you
read this. The powers that be
were able to find two addi-
tional dates on which to add
two performances of "Cline"
so that a few more VLT fans
can be accommodated -
Feb. 26 and March 5, both at 8
p.m. Tickets are $20 per per-
son for both shows if avail-
able.
Tamara Sipes is wonderful
as Cline. Her voice is perfect
and because she is a profes-
sional singer, her stage pres-
ence is right on the money
too. With Rebecca Holahan
back to reprise her role, it is
no wonder the show is a sell-


out.
Adding to the miracle of
the "Cline" show is the fact
that the VLT had to transform
the "Cabaret" set to the
"Cline" set and theater set up
in just 51 hours, in order to
open on Feb. 14. They had
just one rehearsal in the
Pinkerton Theatre before
opening night. Whew! It is a
good thing that director Allan
Kollar can survive on little or,
no sleep.
As for "Rain," I must apolo-
gize for an error that crept
into my review of that excel-
lent show. Ronald Krine
Myroup turned in a very fine
performance as R.E Simpson,
not as studio exec Roscoe
Dexter, a part that was played
to the hilt by the talented
Joseph Giglia. My apologies to
both for misreading the cast
list in the program. If you can
get tickets, go see for yourself.
Brad Wages and Dennis Clark
as Cosmo Brown and Don
Lockwood are dancing up a
storm. Shades of Donald
O'Connor and Gene Kelly.
With Natalia Mock as Lina
Lamont, the movie star for
whom "Silents", were perfect,
and it is no wonder the show
is so popular.
For tickets to these and the
rest of the season's coming
shows, call the box office at
488-1118 Monday-Saturday,
10 a.m.-5 p.m. and one hour
before each performance.

BY DAVID GERMAIN
GUEST WRITER

"Freedomland" clearly
was an important film for Joe
Roth so important that the
esteemed Hollywood execu-
tive decided he had to direct
it himself.
Sadly for Roth and stars
Samuel L. Jackson and Juli-
'anne Moore, "Freedonmland"
will be inconsequntial' to
audiences. The movie has
nothing insightful to say
about the social issues it
tackles racial unrest,
police authoritarianism, the
tragic outcomes that can
arise from the pressures of
single parenting.
A story that tries and fails


in its examination of mean-
ingful matters should at
least be decent drama. But
"Freedomland" is an exercise
in bleakness and tedium
occasionally broken up by
shrill clashes between the
two leads and poorly staged,
stereotypical confrontations
between, white cops and
black citizens.
Adapted by PRichard Price!
from his own 'iovel, "Free-'
domland" opens with a
promisingly moody title-
credits sequence in which
Moore meanders in distract-
ed confusion through the
tough black housing proj-
ects of a New Jersey town
bordering on a blue-collar
white enclave.

Moore's Brenda Martin
ends up at a hospital emer-
gency room, treated for cuts
and bruises and claiming
she's a victim of a carjacking
by a black man. After police
detective Lorenzo Council
shows up, to take her state-
ment, Brenda spills the
beans: Her 4-year-old son.
was asleep in the back seat of
the car andm.now is missing. a -
Nlinutes into the movie.
this discovery is followed by
bellowing between Moore
and Jackson that's so shriek-
ingly over-the-top, "Free-
domland" never recovers.
White police storm-troop
into the neighborhood to.
find Brenda's boy and nab his
abductor, while terrorized


black residents respond with
rage. Roth seems to be using
the carrot-and-blow-torch
method of directing, reward-
ing actors for their excess and
scorching their bottoms to
elicit more frenzied perfor-
mnances when they're not
yelling loudly enough.
Edie Falco is one of the few
actors who remains under
co n trol as a woman leading a
parents' group that hunts for
missing children. Too bad her
character is so even-keeled
and dull.
"Freedomland," released
by Sony's Columbia Pictures,
is rated R for language and
some violent content. Run-
ning time: 112 minutes. One
and a half stars out of four.

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

deal with difficult people is
amazing. Someone in need
of a diplomatic advisor is
watching, too. This could net
you a job!

/ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). An alliance you
thought you couldn't
do without shows itself to be
outmoded. Don't fret, new
ways of getting the job done
appear quickly. You gain new
confidence in your fellows.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-
Nov. 21). Your judg-
ment is particularly
keen this morning. One
shrewd decision will favorably
affect your finances. Show
your wares. A backer, possibly
Capricorn, is interested! -

SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21). It's a
romantic day, and the
slightest provocation has you
all aflutter. A seeming rival in
fact does not have designs on
your object of desire; jealousy
is unfounded.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). Get the
inside scoop on your
boss or company; you're
promoted when you show
initiative. Tonight, environ-
mnents with the right ambiance
turn the heat up on your
love life.

.,-. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18). The stars.
'.'' ? urge you not to
compare yourself with others,
True improvement is
made from the inside out.
While you're in line at the
market, keep in mind all
magazine covers are seriously
retouched.

* v. PISCES (Feb. .19-March
jf 20). Words can mean
different things to
different people. The planets
suggest that you tread softly
with a comrade, sibling or
co-worker, especially if this
person is a fire sign (that's
Sagittarius, Leo or Aries).

STAFF REPORT

Across America, more than
500,000 men and women
who were wounded in com-
bat proudly wear the Purple
Heart medal.
From World War II to Iraq
and Afghanistan, these brave
Americans shed their blood
on the world's battlefields.
These heroes don't ask for
recognition or seek publicity.
In most cases, they are silent
Warriors who shun the spot-
light.


They experienced the hor-
ror of combat but are glad
they could help foster the
American dream of freedom
around the globe.
Many have lost limbs and
many suffer from mental
scars that cannot be seen.
What they could really use is a
handshake.
So if you know of any
Purple Heart recipients in
your neighborhood, thank
them for their service.
Tell them you appreciate
what they have undergone.


Let them know you care.
Many combat wounded
are in dire need of help. The
Military Order of the Purple
Heart (MOPH) seeks out
these wounded warriors and
gives them assistance and
aid.
To do this, MOPH has
established chapters in many
cities across the nation.
The organization offers
help in obtaining benefits
from the government, assists
families in need, offers schol-
arships to children of combat


wounded and provides many
other services that contribute
to their welfare.
If you know of a Purple
Heart recipient, encourage,
him or her to contact MOPH
and seek assistance at (703)
642-5360 or purpleheart
.org.
Our combat-wounded vet-
erans sacrificed everything to
help the rest of America have
a better way of life.
Helping them in their time
of need would be just one
way to return the favor.

In pursuit of memories


BENNETT GROSS
RELIGION COLUMNIST


Many have written about
the significance of memories
but it was the English play-
wright Sir James Barry who
said it best:
"God gave us memories so
that we could remember the
roses in December."
So much of our lives are
embedded with memories,
memories of loved ones that
have passed away, memories
that run the gamut of emo-
tions.
But it is the ones that have
given us pleasure that we
seem to recall most often.
How many times have you
heard someone say, "I can't
wait for spring or for the


Fourth of July?"
Religious holidays play a
large role in stirring up mem-
ories, specifically holidays
such as Passover, where food
plays an important part in
bringing families together.
Rabbi Benjamin Blech, a
highly acclaimed author and
a professor of Talmud, is a
firm believer of "holiday
treats."
"Food can be Pavlovian,"
he writes, "it can trigger auto-
matic responses. Just think-
ing about it can make your
mouth water; better yet, food
can also overwhelm you with
memories."
I suspect that's what makes
the Jewish Food Festival so
popular every year. The
thought of the overstuffed
corned beef or pastrami
sandwiches on Jewish rye
stirs up memories of how
good it was and how good it
can be.
I can't help thinking back
to the aromas wafting from
my grandmother's kitchen
and the memories of her
serving me a slice of apple pie
or chocolate cake just out of
the oven. The incredible


array of foods that she made
with loving care made her a
culinary expert long, long
before there was a Culinary
Institute.
Creating food that was
special was something my
grandmother not only was
celebrated for, it was one of
the few constant rays of sun-
shine in a life filled with more
valleys than peaks.
I believe it was the mar-
velous out-pouring from her
kitchen coupled with a strong
faith and inner strength that
kept her going.
The door to my grand-
mother's house was always
open to family and friends,
whether for a full meal or for a
taste of her marvelous baking
and a cup of coffee or tea.
Troubles seemed to melt
away with every bite, if only
for the moment.
Since the beginning of
time food has been bringing
people together. And it's in
that spirit that the Venice
Jewish Center opens its doors
to the entire community for a
day of good food and festivi-

Boots and Bandannas event supports

Catholic Charities' work in Arcadia


BYJUDYBOKORNEY
GUEST WRITER

Catholic Charities of De-
Soto County hosts the fourth
annual Boots and Bandannas
Dinner Dance Saturday,
March 18, at the. Mission
Valley Country Club in Venice
to raise -money to support
their programs.
"Boots and Bandannas
remains our major fundrais-
ing event," said Sister Ann
DeNicolo, program director
of Catholic Charities of
DeSoto County. Last year the
event raised more than
$27,000 for the direct assis-
tance, immigration, housing,
counseling and after-school
tutoring programs.
"Because of the generosity
of those who attended last
year, we were able to hire
three new employees this
year. Now we can extend our
services to .the very fringes of
DeSoto County to people


who otherwise might not get-
the assistance they need,"
said Sister DeNicolo.
"People whose lives had
been seriously affected by
natural disasters, loss of em-
ployment and a wide range of
social and economic pres-
sures were able to maintain
more of their dignity because
of the money raised at Boots
and Bandannas. We hope to
do it again this year," said
Sister DeNicolo.
' More than 100 volunteers
from Arcadia, Sarasota, North
Port, Venice, Englewood, Bo-
ca Grande, Punta Gorda, Port
Charlotte, Lake Suzy, Lake-
wood Ranch and Myakka City
support the Catholic Char-
ities programs provided in
DeSoto County.
The Direct Assistance pro-
gram offers help with emer-
gency food or clothing needs,
or financial support with util-
ities, rent, mortgage pay-
ments or prescription med-


ication. Immigration services
provide counselors that are
certified through the Bureau
of Immigration Appeals (BIA)
who process Immigration
and Naturalization Service
applications. The Housing
Counseling program assists
clients with securing safe,
affordable housing, and the
After-School Tutoring pro-
gram supports children who
are at risk of failure in school
by giving them one-on-one
tutoring and mentoring..
The Boots and Bandannas
Dinner Dance features a so-
cial hour, dinner and dancing
and a silent auction. Anyone
interested in supporting
Catholic Charities of DeSoto
County can attend by pur-
chasing tickets or becoming a
sponsor. For more informa-
tion, call Rose Sherard at (863)
