County refuses to




part sea of traffic


The Catholic church on
Center Road fears the
road improvement
project will put its
parishioners at risk of
traffic wrecks.

BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Cries of protest from mem-
bers of Our Lady of Lourdes
Catholic Church appear to be
falling on deaf ears at Sara-
sota County.
Traffic engineers on the
Center Road widening project
have planned a median di-
rectly in front of the church's
main entrance that prevents
any left turns from the prop-
erty.
Parishioners who need to
travel east on Center Road
will have to turn right and
then make a U-turn 500 feet
down the road at the East
Village Drive intersection.
For more than a year, Fath-
er Vincent Sheehy and other
members of his church have
been attempting to change
that, asking for either a turn
lane or a traffic signal at the
intersection Sarasota County
wants the church to use.
Officials with the Diocese
of Venice agreed to this nearly
five years ago, according to
Sheehy, years before thou-
sands upon thousands of
homes were approved just
east of the church. Sarasota
County would not let the
church back out of the agree-
ment and threatened to with-
hold a certificate of occupan-
cy at its youth center, the pas-
tor said.
"In some cases, they would
call it blackmail," Sheehy
said. "We don't do that. We
call it county requirements."
Trying to turn
Sarasota County launched
the $30 million Center Road
project last November and

trated with Sarasota County and its plans to put up a median
as part of the Center Road construction improvements.


expects this 3.6-mile stretch
from River Road to Jacaranda
Boulevard to be finished by
May 2007.
The existing two-lane Cen-
ter Road will become a divid-
ed four-lane road with land-
scaped medians, streetlights,
4-foot bicycle lanes, traffic
signals, roadway drainage
and stormwater ponds.
A 10-foot-wide path and
sidewalk will be built on both
sides of the roadway as part of
the county's trails system.
This trail system will eventu-
ally run continuously from
Fruitville and Verna roads in
North County to Myakka Riv-
er to the Carlton Preserve to
Alligator Creek and then to
Caspersen Beach and the
Gulf of Mexico.
Our Lady of Lourdes Cath-
olic Church has entrance-exit
openings on the eastern and
western ends of its complex,
which hosts services for up to
1,700 people.
The eastern end has al-
ways been the main entrance,
but the western opening was
created when the youth cen-
ter was built across from the
East Village Drive intersec-
tion.


Sheehy wants to make the
main exit a left-turn only and
the East Village Drive exit a
straight or right-turn only so
traffic flows away from each
opening.
This requires a median cut,
which isn't in the county's
design plans. Requests to add
one have been denied, so all
500-plus cars leaving Sunday
morning services will have to
flow through the intersection.
"The location of the medi-
an opening you have request-
ed is too close to the planned
full opening serving both East
Village Drive and the church's
westerly driveway," County
Administrator Jim Ley wrote
Dec. 7 in a letter to the pastor.
Ley goes on to explain that
other Center Road churches,
such as Christ United Meth-
odist Church to the east, were
granted median cuts only
because there was no sec-
ondary choice, as Lourdes
Catholic Church has with
East Village Drive.
How about a
traffic signal?
Sheehy has all but given up

Venice Police Chief nominee Julie Williams conducts one of her first duties a TV interview
with ABC-7 reporter Josh Taylor. Williams will be presented to city council on April 11 for
approval as the city's new police chief. Jim Hanks retired Feb. 28 after 30 years on the force, the
last five as chief.


Reading news stories about the Matrix Report
rekindled the retired Michigan cop's interest in
police work.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Last summer, Julie Wil-
liams was trying to figure out
what to do in retirement after
almost 25 years in law
enforcement.
The transplant from Lan-
sing, Mich., was only 48 years
old and ready to try her hand
at a new profession after mov-
ing to Sarasota with her hus-
band, Lewis.
And then Williams began
reading about Venice Police
Department and manage-
ment issues identified within
the Matrix Report. Lead-
ership, low morale and trust
were among the concerns
raised by the audit of VPD,


which is experiencing the
pains of growing from a
small-town department to
something slightly larger.
That was when Williams
figured out her mission in re-
tirement return to law en-
forcement.
"I thought, 'Why reinvent
the wheel?' Williams said.
"Why sit on the sidelines and
let this police department
suffer? I've been down this
road before. I can help."
That attitude was one of
the qualities that helped Wil-
liams beat out five other can-
didates to become Venice's
next police chief and the first
female chief in the city's his-
tory.
Former chief Jim Hanks re-


tired Feb. 28 after 30 years on
the force, the last five as chief.
City Manager Marty Black
announced the decision
Thursday following a six-
month search.
The final decision rests
with Venice City Council,
which will vote April 11. Wil-
liams would begin work April
17, if members approve.
"We were fortunate to have
several well-qualified candi-
dates, who demonstrated ex-
pertise and abilities to lead a
police department," Black
said.
"Ms. Williams rose above
the other candidates because
of her experience in internal
affairs and new officer men-
toring; and because of her
desire to work with the offi-
cers and staff to reinvigorate
the department. She shows
knowledge of how to establish

Wildlife officers search for

'Bigfoot' in Florida woodlands

From the Feb. 17, 1975, Venice Gondolier Sun


STAFF REPORT

The woods are full of
strange sights and sounds,
but none so strange as a
creature likened to the
Abominable Snowman.
The wildlife officers and
biologists of the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commis-
sion who know Florida's
wilderness have never re-
ported sighting the creature


known as Bigfoot or Sas-
quatch, but are being ask-
ed to keep an eye out for
it.
Dr. O.E. Frye, director of
the Commission, has as-
sured a St. Petersburg group
of the commission's help in
its quest for capturing one
of the creatures.
The group, the Yeti Re-
search Society, asserts there
are between 250 and 300 of

The tall, shaggy, gorilla-like

Black shade is the deep

house and yard were in black
shade before Hurricane
Charley. In satellite photos

T.B.'s house could not be
seen. Only the canopy of oak
trees throwing black shade
was visible.
When Charley screamed
away, T.B. emerged to a world
of broken oaks and dappled
sunlight. The oaks survived
and bloom anew now, but
T.B. will not live long enough
to see his property in black
shade again.

More SCAT service coming to South County


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


The first installment of five
$1 million payments for the
Sarasota County Area Transit
will bring neighborhood feed-
er service to Englewood and
North Port by July.
County commissioners
agreed to the $1 million bud-
get amendment, which would
start a phased fundamental
change to the county's transit
system during the next few
years.
County commissioners
agreed to provide SCAT with
$5 million to do the overhaul,
which would improve service
that is viewed by the board as
vital to the future transporta-
tion resources of the county.
Officials said they hoped
that having more buses and
more people riding those
buses would translate into a
relief in traffic congestion at
key points in the county.
"We are seeing a definite
increase in ridership where
our service hours and service
have changed," said Sarah
Blanchard, a senior planner
for the county Public Works
department and SCAT.
Circular service
The changes in SCAT since
the board approved the origi-
nal budget increase are con-
-sidered the first moves of a
bigger master plan.
Phase 1 of that plan would
bring four changes to SCAT'S
service.
The two most significant
ones for South County are
Englewood and North Port


neighborhood feeder routes,
officials said.
These routes will provide a
circular service within each
community to link people
with key services.
In Englewood, the feeder
would connect residents with
Englewood Community Hos-
pital, the YMCA, Englewood
Sports Complex and other
services such as shopping.
"We met with every group
in Englewood and this is
considered a key route,"
Blanchard said. "Everyone
wanted a connection to the
hospital."
A hope to link to Mer-
chant's Crossing or Wal-Mart
in Charlotte County is further
down the road as no inter-
local agreement now exists
with Charlotte County for
such a service expansion, she
said.
In North Port, the neigh-
borhood feeder would link
the Riley Chase affordable
housing complex, social ser-
vices and the high school.
Each of these new neigh-
borhood routes would have
one new bus.
Greater Venice
Other expansions to the
service include a 30-minute
service along SCAT Route 17
between the Venice and Sara-
sota employment centers.
The other is a similar 30-
minute service along SCAT
Route 99, which runs along
U.S. 41.
Blanchard said both routes
are heavily used and there
has been a push to expand
the number of trips at several

A county budget amendment will get Sarasota County Area Transit buses running in more neighborhoods this summer.


public workshops.
There will also be several
minor route changes.
Additional service up-
grades will come along in
September and again in early
2007.
By then, Blanchard said
the plan is to create a Greater


Venice Area route, including
South Venice, the city itself
and the Laurel area.
Through the entire expan-
sion, SCAT will add numer-
ous buses and as many as 40
new bus drivers.
As the plan moves forward,
County Administrator Jim


Ley said SCAT officials are
looking at all sorts of different
opportunities to increase
ridership.
In the congested down-
town area, he said there
could be a point where some
streets would be designated
bus-use-only during certain


hours of the day.
Blanchard said SCAT will
continually adjust to the
changing demands of the
community as the new mas-
ter plan is implemented.

GCCFV applies
for annexation
SGulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice has of-
ficially applied for annexation
into the city.
City of Venice officials and
representatives with GCCFV
have been in negotiations
since November over an an-
nexation agreement that
would guarantee construc-
tion of workforce housing on
the charitable organization's
146 acres along Laurel Road.
The Venice Planning Com-
mission is expected to con-
sider the annexation proposal
April 4; final approval rests
with city council.
"This agreement ... is the
first of its kind in our organ-
ization and demonstrates
our commitment to the com-
munity to address workforce


housing concerns," City Man-
ager Marty Black wrote in his
memo to council members.
On Feb. 28, GCCFV Pres-
ident and CEO Teri Hansen
unveiled the North Venice
development, called The
Bridges, to city council. The
146 acres east of Interstate
75 and between Laurel and
Border roads would become
workforce housing, single-
family homes and commer-
cial properties.
Some of the annexation
deal highlights are:
The city obtains the
rights to a pair of potable
water wells.
GCCFV must design and
build a north-south connector
for Laurel and Border roads.
Venice also will waive part
or all of the "extraordinary
impact" fee of $1,760 on


homes that meet certain re-
quirements:
** One-third of the impact
fee ($587) if the home is sold
to a city of Venice employee
or person employed by a
Venice-based business.
** Another third if the
home's value or rental cost is
at or below 80 percerft of the

the pathways.
Alternative 2, according to
FDOT officials, is the mini-
mum width allowable under
state and federal guidelines.
It's ROW is scaled back to only
106 feet wide. It further trims
the median to 14 feet, com-
pletely eliminates the border
area between the road and
walkway, with only the gutter
separating pedestrians from
traffic, and eliminates the
proposed bike path. It further


reduces two of three lanes
each way from their current
12-foot width to 11 feet.
FDOT spokespersons said
they heard a lot about the
need for additional accelera-
tion and deceleration lanes,
but not much need for bike
paths. About 200 people
attended the workshop,
which consisted of a 15-
minute video explaining the
plan, and a viewing area with
enlarged aerial maps super-


imposed with proposed
ROWs. FDOT will take the
feedback it gleans and make
revisions before bringing it
back to Venice city council for
their approval. At least two
more public information
workshops are scheduled
before then.

SUN PHOTO BY JEFF TAVARES, jtavares@venicegondolier.com
Area residents and business owners looked at maps provided by the Florida Department of
Transportation showing two alternative designs for the widening of U.S. 41 Bypass.


BYPASS :
30-foot median and 8-foot
pathways. This segment is
estimated to cost $15.2 mil-
lion.
Responding to business
concerns about impinging,
right-of-way purchases and
sticker shock from city offi-
cials, FDOT provided alterna-
tive plans for the 1.69 mile


segment from Center Road to
Hatchett Creek. The 1994
plan was estimated to cost
$87.8 million and impact 55
parcels, requiring the reloca-
tion of 19 businesses. Two
new options still require 19
business relocations, but the
ROW width is reduced con-
siderably in both, and so is
the cost.
Originally, the 1994 plan


called for a 180-foot-wide
minimum right-of way.
FDOT's new alternative 1 for
the segment from Center
Road to Hatchett Creek
would call for a 126-foot ROW
and cost $49.4 million. Fifty-
four feet of ROW was shaved
off by cutting back on the
median, border areas be-
tween the bike and pedestri-
an pathways, and the width of

cent against, casting a total of
4,895 votes.
Strongholds within city
limits canceled out each
other's votes. In Precinct 62
(east of Capri Isles Boulevard)
opponents outvoted support-
ers by 74 votes, 462 against
and 388 in favor. The reverse
was true in Precinct 64
(Pinebrook, west of Capri
Isles Boul.evard), %\here up-
porters outvoted opponents
by 74 votes, 438 in favor and
364 against.
Interestingly, both
precincts are at the Church of
the Nazarene on East Venice
Avenue.
Other precincts traded
votes in favor and against the
referendum, ranging between
four and 36 votes. But it was
Bay Indies Mobile Home Park
(Precinct 88) that carried the
Venice vote in favor of the ref-
erendum, with its supporters
outvoting opponents by 64
votes, 177 to 113. In the end,
the referendum passed in the
city of Venice by 17 votes.
South County votes
Other votes in South
County cities and areas were
closer than the county's over-
all 61 percent margin of victo-
ry, with the exception of
North Port's standout 71 per-
cent victory.
In North Port, with its me-
dian age of 42, all 11 precincts
passed the measure. It cast a
total of 4,334 votes, 3,076 in
favor and 1,258 against.
Only one of seven pre-
cincts voted down the mea-
sure in Englewood, where it
passed with 1,258 votes for
and 1,033 votes against. Os-
prey passed the measure
1,385 to 1,117, while Laurel-
Nokomis passed it 1,017 to
857.
Not sour grapes,
poor planning
In a city where the average
age is 68, Levine said county
voters were "snowed under by
apples (on pro-referendum
signs) and slick marketing."
"Voters will pay for it for
the next four years and appar-
ently for longer than that,"
Levine said, alluding to pro-
referendum supporters who
say they intend to come back
to renew the measure in 2010.
Levine said he thinks the
message Venice voters sent
with their split vote was
"show me results."
"We're not against spend-
ing the money on the kids,
we're against the spending of
money on everything but the
kids," Levine said. "We want
to see results."

a problem-solving approach
to law enforcement and meet
the needs of the community."
The new police chief also is
expected to recruit and retain
Venice's police officers. More
than half of the city's police
force is approaching retire-
ment eligibility.
Difficult background
Williams understands
what it's like for a police
department that's under con-
stant stress. -
Year after year, Lansing
City Council slashed the
police department's operat-
ing budget. Lansing's ecorio-
my is directly connected to
the automobile industry, and
the 121,000-resident city has
been hard hit.


When the city offered early
retirement to officers as a
cost-cutting measure,
Williams decided it was time
to move on.
"It's hard to work under a
situation where you have to
keep cutting," Williams said.
"You get to a point where
there's nothing left to cut."
Williams is a graduate of
the FBI National Academy in
Quantico, Va. She holds a
bachelor's degree in law
enforcement from Northern
Michigan University in
Marquette, and a master's
degree from Michigan State
University in East Lansing.
Williams is called the
"brainchild of the Lansing
Police Department Mentor
Program," according to lans-


ingpolice.com.
After hiring 42 percent of
Lansing's police officers in the
four years prior to 1997, LPD
launched the program in
1997 to improve retention.
After just two years, Williams
was honored as the 1999 CJ
Women of Michigan Officer
of the Year for her efforts with
the program.
Williams isn't worried
about being the city's first
female chief, and believes her
qualifications and experience
are what's the most impor-
tant.
"I don't really see it being
an issue," Williams said.

TRAFFIC from Page 1 A


on his preferred solution.
Option No. 2 involves
putting a traffic signal at the
East Village Drive intersec-
tion. The pastor believes it
could be some type of flash-
ing light that only operates on
weekends or times of heavy
traffic.
The church would even
work to raise the money
needed for the light.
Sarasota County has
already told Sheehy there is
not enough traffic to warrant
a signal at the intersection,
which has the church parking


lot on the north side and a
residential development on
the south side.
"They said if we really need
something, we should hire a
deputy (to direct traffic),"
Sheehy said.
Church members will
launch a petition drive this
weekend. Volunteers hope
that, with enough signatures,
the church can get the county
to listen to them.
Some of the parishioners
feel as if Sarasota County is
being inflexible, and would
rather stick to its original


design plan than adjust to
meet resident needs.
Sheehy calls the situation a
safety problem.
In the past year, there have
already been two bad car
wrecks involving church
members at the intersection,
and he believes it will only get
worse once the new homes
arid road improvements are
done.
"We would. pay for it,"
Sheehy said. "To save a life
would be worth it, because
we know there will be terrible
accidents."

Overall, Sarasota County
voters passed the referendum
with 61 percent (36,769) vot-
ing in favor and 39 against
(23,528). The margin of victo-
ry was 13,241 votes.
Levine believes the refer-
endum was much closer than
that if you take out the 5,368
school employees and their
spouses and family members
who stood to gain directly
through substantial pay rais-
es for employees embedded
in the referendum, or the
businesses that directly bene-
fit from school contracts.

He's not committing yet,
but Levine says there just may
be organized opposition four
years from now if the school
board comes back for another
referendum and schools are
unable to show promised
improvements, especially in
test scores.
He considered joining up
with other area organizations
late last year, like Control
Growth Now, but didn't.
"I woke up too late," Levine
said.

Congratulationss. now the real work begins


A pat on the back to Gary Norris, the
Sarasota County School Board, Citizens
for Better Schools and all those who
supported extending the 1-mill school tax.
It took a lot of work and money to get the
extension approved, and the 61-39 percent
margin of victory was a solid one.
That, however, was the easy part.
About two out of every five voters opposed
the extension, more than the last time
around. Some said they were done paying to
educate children; some felt overtaxed; some,
including us, thought the schools need more
money but wanted either a smaller tax or a
way to set more money aside in case of
another windfall; some wanted to tie the
additional revenue to specific performance
goals.
Educating our children is and always has
been everyone's job, and to be blunt, most of
the people complaining about their taxes are
well able to pay them. And they know they
would be complaining even more loudly if
their property weren't appreciating in value,
and that's the real reason for the rise in their
tax bills.
But they also want to know that the tax
revenue is being spent wisely and sparingly,
and that it is making a difference. All county
residents, whether they supported the tax or
not, are entitled to that.
Barring a sea change in the way the state
funds our schools, it's a given the district will


be back to extend the 1-mill tax again
because most of the money goes to recurring
expenses. Here are some steps we think the
district can take now to set us up for a "Yes"
vote in 2010:
Appoint a real watchdog committee. The
members of the oversight committee named
in 2002 and of Citizens for Better Schools
were virtually interchangeable. Pick people
independent of the referendum effort, even
some who were critical of it, and let them
shine a bright light on the use of the funds.
Communicate better. District officials think
they did a good job telling us where the money
went, but too many people had too many ques-
tions for us to be able to agree. Mailed flyers get
tossed, and it's a poor excuse to say, "It's on the
Web site." It's your job to answer to the people
holding the purse strings, not theirs to ferret the
information out.
The 2002 referendum money brought a lot
of welcome changes in the district, but one
constant then until now is the utter lack of
any press releases about district business.
Teacher of the year awards and the like are
nice stories, but it feels as if the only time the
district does any PR is when it's trying to get a
referendum passed. With' all that the NeXt
Generation Learning plan involves, that
needs to change.
Keep the belt tight. The district brags that
it has one of the leanest budgets in the state.
We're not sure if that's measured objectively


or just in comparison to the other 66 districts,
and it makes a big difference: If you're below
average height in the NBA, you're still very
tall. Even the referendum's most enthusiastic
supporters don't want money wasted.
Change the policy on reserve funds.
District policy allows a maximum of 7.5 per-
cent of the budget to be held in reserve. After
the reserve got maxed out with 2002 referen-
dum money, the district still had tens of mil-
lions more than it anticipated and no choice
but to spend the money. Bumping the
reserve up to the state-permitted ceiling of 10
percent would not only give more of a cush-
ion in general, it might let the district settle
for less than 1 mill in 2010.-
Try not to come back for 1 mill in 2010. It
would be a real sign of fiscal responsibility if
the district could husband its funds in such a
way as to be able to wait an extra year to seek
an extension, or be able to ask for only half or
three-quarters of a mill or both.
A big part of that will be continuing to
pressure the state to get Florida out of the
bottom ranks in per-pupil funding, Districts
get enough only to fund a mediocre educa-
tion and must depend on the generosity of
their residents if, as in Sarasota County, they
think that's not good enough.
Now, that's a two-edged sword: The state is
more than happy to shift its responsibilities
off onto the counties and municipalities, and
by agreeing to tax ourselves more, we aid and


abet that conduct. A district's success at beg-
ging voters for more money shouldn't be the
difference between a good education and a
mediocre one.
Norris was part of a campaign in Kansas to
change the practice of richer counties fund-
ing poorer ones. Maybe he can work some
magic here.
Most important, show results. We're not
big fans of the FCAT, but as long as it's con-
sidered important by the state, our students
need to do well on it, and on the other stan-
dardized tests they take. By 2010 eight years
of referendum dollars should be making a
significant impact there.
But that's not nearly enough. Graduation
rates need to climb and the number not
just the percentage of dropouts needs to
drop off. The achievement gap between
white and minority students needs to be
eliminated, not reduced.
Students who aren't college material need
to be given options that will help them land
good jobs, and those who do go on to college
must get the kind of education that will
ensure their success at that level.
And, of course, NeXt Generation needs to
fulfill its mission.
Though we recommended a vote against
the referendum, we aren't unhappy the
schools are going to get more money. We just
hope we aren't unhappy four or five? -
years from now.


Is it over



at long last?


MARY KAY RUPPEL
' 1j,


Yes, it is, even though as I
write this I do not know the
outcome of the March 14 vote
on whether a four-year exten-
sion has been granted on the
1-mill school tax.
I can say, however, that
anyone who has not heard
the debates must have been
visiting the Planet Juno. Why
even Mallard Fillmore had his
say today regarding our chil-
dren's educations or lack
thereof. He said the average
American public high school
student doesn't know where
Central America is, doesn't
know where Japan is but
does know that Iraq is anoth-
er Vietnam (whatever that is).
I awaited divine interven-
tion to guide me in my deci-
sion-making process. How-
ever, there was no loud clap of
thunder, not even a cloud on
the horizon; no parting of the
Gulf of Mexico, not even a lit-
tle red tide; and not so much
as a word from the Revs. Jesse
Jackson or Pat Robertson with
messages from our creator.
My first independent deci-
sion was not to vote my
"pocketbook," although I'm
already well over my head in
insurance and taxes. There-
fore, my decision to vote "No"
on the tax extension was
based on the fact that the
problems that face our school
kids, in my opinion, will not
be solved by throwing more
money into the pot. Maybe
the problems wouldn't be
hurt by more money, but it
would just further delay the
real solutions.
At the top of my list of most
important ingredients to
ensure that school children
get the most out of their edu-
cation is parental involve-
ment.
Am I being judgmental? I
guess I am, because too many


parents have simply turned
their kids over to the public
school system.
I will enumerate my opin-
ion of what involvement is:
communicating with your
kids about what's going on in
school at every level every
day; making sure that home-
work is completed and turn-
ed in; zero tolerance for fail-
ing grades; making time to
attend all school and teach-
er's meetings regarding your
child's progress or lack there-
of.
In single-parent homes
where that parent is working,
it's not always possible to be
there, but schedules can be
rearranged. Don't bury your
head in the sand about soci-
etal problems you feel your
child may be experiencing,
but share your information
with the proper school au-
thorities.
Finally, if you feel any
teacher is not doing his or her
job, complain to school au-
thorities immediately.
Second, it seems to me
that it is too difficult to get rid
of "deadwood" teachers.
Some teachers just aren't
cut out for the profession. I
am sure that school officials
can identify those teachers,
but the process of removing
them is darn-near impossi-
ble. Something must be done
about that.
The unions have made it
more important to protect
the teacher's job than to pro-
tect our kids from inept
teachers. Get your elected of-
ficials to confront the unions
to cooperate, so that our chil-
dren can compete on a level
playing field with the children
from foreign countries.
Who among us has not at
one time or another found
ourselves in an inappropriate
job? Our country cannot even
compete successfully in the
world markets today because
our laborers have become
more greedy than needy. It's
not the old days; just ask
General Motors.
I'd like to be able to tie this
column neatly together today
with a beautiful green bow,
because after all, this is St.
Patrick's Day. And quite frank-
ly I have been terrified that
someone was going to pull
the rug out from under yet

Students start diplomacy Web site


Editor:
I am a local homeschooler in Englewood. I am in 10th grade,
and I take the AP United States History class from the Florida
Virtual School.
Two of my fellow FVS students and I have created a Web site
as a part of Doors to Diplomacy, an international contest
focused on raising awareness about global diplomacy.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice recently urged all stu-
dents interested in diplomacy to become involved in Doors to
Diplomacy. Rice stated, "I have a challenge for all students who
are interested in diplomacy. We are sponsoring the 'Doors to
Diplomacy' contest, an educational challenge to middle and
high school students around the world to produce Web pro-
jects that teach others about the importance of international
affairs and diplomacy."
We have met Rice's challenge and have created a Web site
focusing on international diplomacy.
Our Web site focuses on the United Nations and United
States involvement in international affairs. We believe that
American citizens should be aware of the actions of their gov-
ernment and of international organizations, so we urge the
members of our community to visit our Web site and learn
about what the United Nations and the United States are cur-
rently doing to influence our world. Hopefully our Web site will
inspire people to be more aware of the impact of international
issues on their own lives.
We hope the community will support our learning experi-
ence by visiting orWeb site at http://membes.cox.net/golden-
bridges and leaving feedback on our e-mail link.

No protection f<
animals in truck
Editor:
During transpo
factory farms,


auctions and slaughterhous-
es, animals raised for food are
often trucked over long dis-
tances without food, water or
rest.
They are crammed into
severely overcrowded trucks,
and suffer from stress, inade-
quate ventilation and tram-
pling injuries. These animals
are often exposed to extreme
weather conditions, from
sweltering heat to freezing ice
storms.
Death, injury and disease
are accepted industry stan-
dards during the transporting
and marketing processes.
As with other farm animal
production practices, trans-
portation overcrowding is
done to increase profits. High
transportation expenses make
it "cost-effective" for meat-
producing companies to
move as many animals as
possible at one time, even if
some of them fall ill and die
from stress during the jour-
ney.
The Twenty-Eight Hour
LT a-, --u ui n1o tH i- do -


Law (passetu in 183 uanu en-
forced by the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture) requires
that animals receive food,
Peter Askew water and rest at least every
Venice 28 hours during transport,
but only applies to farmed
animals transported by train.
s Yet today, more than 95 per-
cent of animals raised for
ort between food are transported by truck.
stockyards, Please urge U.S. Depart-


ment of Agriculture officials
to give animals transported
by truck the same legal pro-
tections as those transported
by train. E-mails should be

Where do we find the


money for new schools?


o .




DAVID DUNN-RANKIN
GUEST 17' ,_.I' T


Begin with a basic premise:
The Sun Coast population is
going to keep growing rapidly.
Follow that with the fact that
we must build more schools.
Then ask the really big ques-
tion how do we pay for
school construction?
Right nowwe use the prop-
erty (ad valorem) tax. It does-
n't matter whether you are
young, old, married, single or
have no children. If you own
property, you pay to build
new schools.
There is a different ap-
proach available to Florida's
counties: They are allowed to
charge an impact fee on each
new home. Before taking
occupancy, the owner can be
required to pay up to $10,000
for the impact that home has
on the community.
That amount is already
levied on new home buyers in
Osceola .County. .The courts
have ruled that Osceola
County's $10,000 impact fee is


justified.
The present school impact
fee in DeSoto and Charlotte
counties remains at zero dol-
lars. Sarasota County charges
$2,032. Why shouldn't we
raise our school impact fees?
One argument against a
school impact fee is that it
might slow down home sales.
But it is doubtful someone
paying $250,000 for a new
home would balk at $255,000
or $260,000.
Others suggest a school
impact fee wouldn't raise
much money. Do the math.
Multiply 3,000 new hous-
ing starts in Charlotte each
year, times half the Osceola
County fee, or $5,000. That
totals $15 million'annually.
Over 10 years, an impact fee
would raise an additional
$150 million to build new
Charlotte schools.
Ten years ago, the state of
Florida supplied 30 percent of
the cost of new school con-
struction. Today it only pro-
vides 3 percent. That dumps a
major burden on the backs of
present homeowners.
With assessed value soar-
ing to a painful point for se-
niors on fixed incomes and
working families, deciding
who should pay for new
school construction has be-
come more meaningful than
ever.
How can we determine
what a fair school impact fee
should be? The state of


Florida makes establishing
the amount easy.
In November 2003, the
state of Florida determined
new schools cost $13,300 for
each elementary student and
up to $20,180 for each high
school student. With land
costs, the purchase of addi-
tional buses and ancillary
spending added to price of
construction, the cost per stu-
dent, under the 2003 stan-
dards, approaches $16,000 for
each elementary student and
$23,000 for each high school
student.
The cost of construction
alone keeps climbing. Again
let's be conservative and esti-
mate the current cost at
$20,000 for every new stu-
dent.
The next step is to estimate
how many students will move
into each new home. A con-
servative estimate is that
when four new homes are
built and sold, only one
school-age child will be
added to our community. If
our school districts charge an
impact fee of $5,000 per new
home, we are convinced the
courts should uphold a
$5,000 impact fee as a legiti-
mate sum.
We need to stop forcing
current homeowners to foot
the bill for all this growth, and
for building new schools. It's
time for new home construc-
tion, the real source of our
growth, to pay its own way.

After all, it could be consid-

cause St Patrick was a Catholic.
It could be banned by PETA
because St. Patrick drove the
snakes out of Ireland.
One. thing about St. Pad-
dy's day is that if you don't go


along with it, you can always
wear orange. That's a nice,
quiet protest without ruining
the fun for everyone.
However, try as I might, I

LET 'EM HAVE IT!



Kudos to city council for saving tower


Ploy didn't work. Congratulations to Venice City Council for
holding the Eagle Point Homeowner's Association to its
promises made in 1991 and 1997 to maintain the historic water
tower located at Eagle Point. The association's ploy to let the
tower deteriorate so that it could then claim it should be torn
down did not work. Thank you, city council, for having some
backbone. We look forward to seeing you enforce your decision


to have the water tower rebuilt.

No recognition. I just
found out that our young
people who won the county
science fair will not be going
to the state science fair
because of money issues. I've
heard that a lot of young peo-
ple aren't getting a lot of
recognition in this area, so it
makes me wonder if I want to
vote on the taxes coming up
when our young people are
not getting the recognition
they deserve.
Attention needed. I am
calling regarding the need of a
turn signal. So many intersec-
tions to name, so little time.
My favorite, or shall I say my
un-favorite, intersection need-
ing a turn signal is at Albee
Farm Road and the 41 Bypass,
traveling south and attempt-


ing to turn left onto Albee
Farm Road.
Seems unbelievable how
the vehicles from the Bypass
and Venice Avenue traffic
light seem to have started a
race and are already pushing
the speed limit approaching
Albee Farm. It appears that
Venice needs some special
attention for turn signals
soon before many accidents
occur as our traffic increases
in the coming years.
Lack of oversight. Bob
Vedder is at it again with his

does not dredge deep
enough.

Tervis targets 100 million annual sales


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS COLUMNIST

This week civic leaders,
industrialists, businesspeople
and team members of Tervis
Tumbler celebrated the com-
pany's 60th anniversary, and
did it in its new headquarters.
It was only a few months
ago production moved to the
$7 million, 55,000-square-


foot plant at 210 Triple Di-
amond Blvd., off Laurel Road
in North Venice. The land-
mark Tervis Tumbler factory
store at 928 South Tamiami
Trail in Osprey continues
opening daily as a retail
showroom.
In 1946 Frank Cotter and
G. Howlett Davis in Detroit
created the first virtually
indestructible drinking vessel


to keep hot drinks hot, and
cold drinks cold. Production
was moved to Osprey and has
remained a family-owned
business.
"To see the growth of the
company where it may
have been 60 years ago start-
ing out in Detroit to where it
is now is just kind of amaz-
ing," said company president
Norbert P. Donnelly. "The dif-


ferent type of company we
started, with a little concept
- and now to see this nice
big factory here is really kind
of a big deal for me," contin-
ued Donnelly.
He recalled the company
was pretty small when he got
there in 1988, with about 12
people, and now there are
more than 100.
In 60 years things have


changed, but the product is still
an insulated drinking vessel.
In the beginning it was
shorter and cylindrical, with
one of the first designs pictur-
ing spokesman Art Carney.
"In the next 10 years I
would not be surprised if we
are selling 100 million a year,"
said Donnelly.
Currently Tervis is produc-
ing 20 million annually. Map-


ping out the strategic plan
this week, the company in-
tends to go to 40 million in
four years, then to 100 million
in 10 years.
They will probably add
additional products, but
Donnelly does not see the tra-
ditional Tervis Tumbler
changing significantly in the
future, although it might be a
larger or smaller size.

Hertz opens on the bypass


Originally from Buffalo,
N.Y, Ronald Racki came to
Sarasota in 1985 with almost
40 years experience in the
motor trade and opened two
Signature Auto Sales lots in
Bradenton.
Recently he remarried and
moved to North Venice. Last
week he opened his third
location, in Venice Sig-
nature Auto Sales at 299 U.S.
41 Bypass at the former West-
coast Motorsports property
two blocks south of Venice
Avenue, adjoining Budget
Truck Rental.
"It's family-owned and op-
erated with my wife, Rhonda,
father-in-law, Jerry Smith,
and friend Dick Phillips,"
said Racki.
She is the sales and finance

The businessman
you don't want
Beware of the fastest-grow-
ing business: the walk-in thief.
Last Friday afternoon
while the wife worked and her
husband and their dog re-
laxed in a room of their home
at Calusa Lakes in Nokomis,
he visited through open slid-
ers, taking her two most valu-
able and treasured rings.
No one heard or saw him
in the bright, hot sunshine of
the paradise in which we live,


but his action is a lesson to us
all: if the doors, sliders and
windows are open, be vigi-
lant, or this unwelcome busi-
nessman may call on you,
too.
Langhams open
North Port office
In reporting the major
expansion of Wheeler Real
Estate of Venice Inc., 111
Shamrock Boulevard, Venice,
I referred incorrectly to the
owners, who are Terry and
Marilyn Langham. They pur-
chased their business in 1993
and have recently opened
their new office, Wheeler Real
Estate of Venice Inc., at 13035
Tamiami Trail, North Port.
Spot the
moving mannequin
When you're walking
downtown, take a closer look
at the shop window man-
nequins because one of them
may be Valerie Doss.
It's just one of the sales
promotions she has done for
stores on Venice, Miami and
Tampa avenues in Venice.
One day she winked at a
couple shopping, and he sent
his wife in to examine the
dress she was wearing. In-
nocently she touchedValerie's
leg, realized she was alive and
screamed in surprise.
This Saturday she will be in
her Cleopatra outfit distribut-
ing sample soap petals for
Cleopatra's store in Miami
Avenue's Breezeway. In the
past she has been Marilyn
Monroe for June's Island Em-
porium in The Venice Mall on
Tampa Avenue, and she is
considering doing Raggedy
Ann, or maybe even a mer-
maid.
Originally from Connect-
icut, she remarried four years
ago and moved to Venice
island with her new husband,
Jack, an IBM retiree. Together
they sing karaoke at clubs in
Venice and Englewood.
"I started modeling for
merchants to get them adver-
tising because a lot of visitors
don't know about the shop-
ping facilities in the Venice


Mall and on Miami Avenue,"
said Doss, who works full-
time for June's Island Empor-
ium. Call 480-1708.
Elegant Peddler
comes to Venice
Opening her third store,
The Elegant Peddler, 225 W
Miami Ave., Venice, in the
Breezeway is a dream come
true for Carolyn Backenstos.
"I've always been enchant-
ed with Venice and wanted to
try a retail store here," com-
mented Backenstos.
A former elementary
school principal who spent 32
years in education in Colum-
bus, Ohio, before retiring to
Sarasota, within a week of
arriving she was offered a job
and has not stopped since.
In Sarasota's Main Street
she has Carolyn's, which is
like a hotel lobby store, and at
Village Walk on Palmer Ranch
she has The Village Peddler.
The Venice store is open
10:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday
through Saturday, and offers
home decor, gifts, art, lamps,
jewelry and accessories. Call

Caspersen Beach Bridge
to close March 27

Beginning March 27, the
Caspersen Beach Bridge will
close to all vehicular and
pedestrian traffic for up to
five months while it is re-
placed.
While Caspersen Beach
and its parking lot will remain
open via South Harbor Drive,
recreational amenities on the
spoil island east of Caspersen
Beach will not be available
throughout the duration of
the construction project.
Amenities that will not be
available include the play-
ground, the pavilion and the
kayak launch. Also, the
pedestrian bridge leading to
Caspersen Beach from the
Venetian Waterway Trail will


be closed during the project
because there will be no
access for emergency vehicles
during the Caspersen Beach
Bridge closure.
While access to the island
will be closed, the portion of
the Venetian Waterway Trail
from the Circus Bridge south
to the pedestrian bridge will
remain open.
Because of safety concerns

about the structural integrity
of the bridge and the proxim-
ity of construction equip-
ment and materials to the
park amenities, county offi-
cials decided to close the
bridge completely during
construction instead of keep-
ing one lane open.
The short-span Caspersen
Beach Bridge is more than 50
years old, and is at the end of

When you're hot, you're
hot, and when you're not,
you're not.
The Venice High baseball
team is having trouble find-
ing any kind of consistency
this season.
A week ago, things were
looking up after a couple of
wins.
But following Thursday
night's 12-3 pounding at the
hands of Orlando-Boone, the
Indians are officially cold
again.
Venice's record dipped to
4-6 while Boone, ranked No. 3
in Class 6A, improved to 10-2.
The Indians were ripped
by North Port earlier in the
week.
Josh Struble got the start
and pitched well for the
Indians. He allowed four hits,


four runs, walked two and
struck out four in 4 1/3
innings. He was the losing
pitcher. The bullpen couldn't
bail him out, as Colby
Howard and Trevor Pelletier
had rough outings.
There were a few things
to cheer about, especially in
the bottom of the fourth
when Venice wiped out a 2-0
deficit with a three spot.
Jordan Lucas had a two-run
triple and Pete Hernandez
drove him in with a single.
Venice only finished with
three hits. Hernandez had
another single in the seventh.
The Indians play a district
game Friday night against vis-
iting Charlotte, Manatee is in
town Tuesday night.

MR. SHEEPSHEAD
FISHING COLUMNIST

Here it is the middle of
March and in-shore fishing is
definitely improving. First on
the negative side, as expect-
ed the sheepshead bite has
slowed down. It looks like
everything else is or will be
improving in the coming
weeks.
Gulf: N.Y Richard and N.Y.
Jacquie had a fantastic day
Tuesday about .one mile off
the Venice beach. They
caught eight king mackerel
and several Spanish mackerel.
Every fish was caught on
"Gotchas" and spoons.
Beaches: Several reports of
pompano hitting at Manasota
Beach (also Tuesday). My
source said that everyone
had at least 3-4 pomps. I
assume they were caught on
shrimp, only because of the
shortage of sand fleas. Re-
member, generally sand fleas
are the bait of choice,
particularly when fishing the
beaches.
Jetties: Tuesday, I saw two


ladyfish, two pompano and
was told that a few small
mackerel were caught. There
is still plenty of small baitfish
around. It may be time for
yours truly to start fishing
for the pomps with my Ugly
Lures tipped with a sand
flea. Remember, cast your
lure into the tide as far out as
possible. Let the lure bounce
slowly off of the bottom. For
best results use a very limber
rod, 10-12 pound line and
fluorocarbon leader. Do
much more bouncing than
reeling.
Intra-Coastal: No report
this week.
Sharky's Pier: Sport crab-
bers are catching blue and
spotted crabs in their traps. I
expect the pomps to show up
very soon. Fish the same
system as you would at the
jetties. Also, the Kings should
arrive shortly.
I understand that the
ladyfish are thick in Lemon
Bay and Sarasota Bay. They
should be at our jetties any
day. Many people don't like
to catch them because they
aren't good eating. I disagree,
they are great fighters and
will hit on just about anything.
Fellow sheepsheadites,
we'll talk again next week.
Mr. Sheepshead (Dave
Hack) is a longtime
resident of Venice. He can be

Safia Tappan and Morgan Tweedie stop for a breather with coach Dennis Storm after last
weekend's race on the Fellsmere canal. The Florida Tech women's team finished first, out-
distancing Stetson and Embry Riddle. Both girls are 2003 graduates from the Pine View
School. Tappan is majoring in ocean engineering and is a junior. She rowed for Sarasota
Scullers in high school. Last year, Tappan did not row due to an injury. She is glad to be
back in the boat. Her parents rowed for FT as well. She is continuing the family tradition.
Tweedie is also a junior, majoring in biological oceanography. Morgan started rowing in
college her freshman year. Last year, she was in the varsity four boat at NCAA Division II
Nationals that won third place the best finish in school history. Tweedie, a swimming
standout at Venice High, also won the SCC Commissioner's Outstanding Athlete
Achievement Award for May. The Florida Tech women's team is gearing up for a very
busy season. They are hoping to get the bid again for NCAA Division II Nationals.

SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN

There is a new way to
commemorate America's fav-
orite pastime personalized
memory books, exclusively

Little League International
has teamed up with custom-
publishing company Shared-
Book Inc. to offer affordable,
hard- and soft-cover Little
League MemoryBooks, brim-
ming with season photos,
team,satsd, and stories . ,,,,,.
"I think it's a wonderful

forward to ordering books for
this and future seasons."
Each Little League Mem-
oryBook has a front and back

pages and Little League
facts, with prompts for per-
sonal stories.
Using a unique, interac-


tive Little League template,
players and their moms, dads
and coaches can build a book
in just two clicks one to up-
load 30 photos to automat-
ically populate a 36-page
book, one to print it. Or they
can spend hours uploading
dozens of photos and chroni-
cling the season's memories
in detail.
"Finally, parents have a
great way to print and en-
joy the season's best digital

County utilities nearing borrowing limit


Projects on the drawing board exceed the amount
the county has to spend by about $63 million.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Rising costs are creating a
heavy burden on the Sarasota
County utilities program.
A workshop Monday for
county commissioners re-
vealed the utilities depart-
ment will reach its borrowing
limit in the next three years.
After that, the options for
providing services during the
next 10 years besides pro-
jects already planned will
be limited.
George MacFarlane of en-
vironmental services said the
utilities department has a
total debt of about $349 mil-
lion.
There is only enough
money to continue with the
Phillippi Creek wastewater
connections and the new
Nokomis water connections,
MacFarlane said.
There is about $303 mil-
lion in projects planned for
the next 10
years, but only
about $240 ''"-
million is cov- f
ered by exist- . :-
ing sources of
money. This
leaves a gap of
nearly $63
million.
"All of that Ley
debt is start-
ing to come due," MacFarlane
said.
The other answer
Commissioners agreed to
several short-term options.


The board agreed to charge
people a service fee if they
have water or wastewater
lines installed near them and
refuse to hook up. Such a fee
would be used as a credit for
future connections.
The board also directed
staff to create a prepayment
program for people willing
to pay for their connection


now rather
than later.
There would
be a deferred
loan program
for people
who couldn't
afford con-
nection costs.
This would
take the form
of a lien that


i ?i

Staub


would be paid when the prop-
erty is sold.
Each action is seen as a
small way of offsetting some
of the costs.
"The best I can do is only
fund part of what is needed,"
said Rob Patten, manager of
environmental services.
The costs of projects -
such as installing water lines
or septic tank replacement -
have become much higher
than had been anticipated,
Patten admitted.
The commissioners have
three options to cover any
shortfalls in revenue: increase
utility rates; increase prop-
erty taxes; or find other
sources of money.
"From a financial strategy,
we are not in a scenario to
borrow," said County Admin-


istrator Jim Ley. "The only
other answer is general rev-
enue funds."
Fairness
The commissioners are
considering using some of
the revenue generated from
the North Port tax-lot sale to
pay for a program to help
people who can't afford to
pay for water or wastewater
hook-ups.
They are also considering
identifying projects to be a
part of the infrastructure sur-
tax extension, which is ex-
pected to be addressed in
2007. About $30 million of
the $110 million Phillipi Creek
septic tank replacement pro-
gram comes from the 2002'
surtax program.
Commissioner Shannon
Staub said it would only be
fair to people in South County
to have their project partially
paid for by the next surtax
extension.
The board agreed that any
utility rate increases should
only go toward paying for
new water sources and not
to extend water lines.
In the loop?
A deeper issue is where
the county stands with the
Peace River-Manasota Re-
gional Water Supply Authority.
All of the money for con-
nections within the area is
funneled through the water
authority and must be con-
sidered regional in nature.
The county intends to
build a regional loop from the
Carlton treatment plant for
greater capacity and reliabil-
ity.
The utilities department is


working to create a Water
Supply Master Plan, and that
plan hinges on what the wa-
ter authority does in the next
several years.
Ley said there has been a
series of meetings with Man-
atee County about future
needs, and the concern is
whether the water authority
can meet future demand.
"It's time for the water
supply authority to take the
next step," Ley said. "Grow
up and take a greater sense
of ownership."
Staub, who
serves as the S .
county's rep-
resentative on
the authority 4 r
board, said a :
master plan is
in the works
and is expect-
ed to identify
new water Thaxton
sources and
projects.
"Until then, we are left
without direction for our-
selves," she said.
Staub later said if the
authority is truly a regional
water supplier and sees the
Carlton plant as a future wa--
ter source, it should buy the
plant.
She sees this as a way to
lower the county's utility debt
while spreading the costs of
maintaining the plant for
regional use.
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton went further, saying that
the county's strong position
on water supply could be
penalized by counties that do
not limit growth.

First check from North Port lot sale arrives


BYBOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

A check fo. $7'0,iiii) ar-"
rived in the mail Monday
morning at the Sarasota
County Administration Build-
ing.
The money is the first of
what will total about $60 mil-
lion from the North Port tax
delinquent lot sale.
Sarasota County Deputy
Administrator Dave Bullock
said the check covers the
payments for the first group
of lots sold during an on-


line auction in three phases.
The city and county joined
with Fisher Auction Com-
pany to sell about 1,900 lots
to date.
A fourth online session is
set to start March 23 and run
until March 28.
County Commission Chair
David Mills said he had only
signed about two dozens of
the deeds to date, but he will
eventually have to sign all of
them. Commission Vice Chair
Nora Patterson said she
signed several of the deeds
while Mills was in Washing-


ton, D.C., last week.
The deed signing were
originally expected to start
in early Februiary, but Bul-
lock said the logistics of
doing them created the
delay.
"It has taken longer than
we expected to get to this
point, but now that they have
started, they should start
coming in quickly now," he
said.
In the fourth session, 43
lots on which scrub jays
were found by the U.S. Fish
& Wildlife Service have their


starting price reduced' by
$3,000 each.
In all, 223 lots will be sold
in the final 6filiffe Tuctlon. "
Starting bids will range
from a low of $10,000 (for lots
that are both flood- and scrub
jay-designated) to a high of
$33,000.

North Port lot auctions is

County may look to


Englewood for water


BYBOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


With a financial crisis
looming for Sarasota County
utilities, one option would be
to allow regional water sup-
pliers to expand into areas
once set aside for the county.
This was the idea thrown
out Monday by County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub at
a board workshop on the
future of utilities in Sarasota
County.
"I want an open line of
communication with the
Englewood Water District,"
Staub said. "I am sure they
would be interested in ex-
panding their reach."
Staub said this as the
commissioners learned that
plans to provide water service
to areas of South Venice could
be put on hold.
That action might be need-
ed because the utilities de-
partment has a debt of more
than $360 million, reaching
its borrowing limit.
"They are way up (State
Road) 776, and if they want
to expand, I have no problem
with them providing the ser-
vice," she said of the Engle-
wood district's expansion
north of Manasota Beach
Road.
There are more than 20,000
potential utility customers in
unincorporated parts of
South County, said Roger
Rasbury of county environ-
mental services.
Englewood Water District
Administrator Richard Rollo
later said the idea of expand-
ing north into South Venice
was intriguing.
The district moved north
of Manasota Beach Road on
S.R. 776 at the request of resi-


dents there. A move farther
north would not be much
of a stretch.
"There is about 4 square
miles of South County that
sticks out like an appendage
and isn't part of the North
Port annexation, which we
have been looking at," Rollo
said. "We've even kicked
around the idea of being the
water supply for the entire
Cape Haze Peninsula."
North Port too?
As with all utilities, Rollo
said the idea is to serve the
greater public good.
"Everybody should be
open to a more cost-effective
way to serve the public," he
said. "As with any decision
we make, we have to keep in
mind the existing customers
and to maintain our expected
level of service."
Staub said she would even
be open to allowing the water
district to use some of the
revenues from a possible in-
frastructure surtax extension
in 2007 for the water project.
"South Venice is the one
consistent area in Which we
have people begging us for
connections," she said. "The
people there were not happy
when we put the last surtax
intq North County" for the
Phillippi Creek septic tank
replacement program.
"This discussion could serve
many purposes, for us, EWD
and the residents who want
this," she said. "I think every-
one would be interested in this
idea. Especially if it means
serving people sooner."
Staub also suggested that
the county open a dialogue
with North Port to learn if
the city is interested in expand-
ing beyond its boundaries.

Sun car show Saturday features the History of the Automobile


By RUSS MOORE
STiI WRITIFR
Last week we printed a
photo of Joseph and Kay
Bragantin's 1937 Packard. We
have heard from a number
of folks that have owned a
Packard. Marion and
Charles Halbach sent us a
few photos of their 1939
Packard Convertible.
Charles tells us, "We
became owners of the 1939
Packard in 1980. The car is
pretty much original except
for tires, brake cylinders and
new paint job. The car has
new leather seats and we
replaced the convertible top."
We were impressed with
Charles' car as most folks are
when faced with a Packard
Convertible Victoria. The car
is an imposing automobile,
taller than most, and sits on a
127-inch wheel base. "The
engine is a straight eight,"
Charles said.
The straight eight that
Charles described is a super
eight, 17th series, model 1703.
The eight-cylinder engine
develops 130-horsepower and
has one in a long line of
smooth-running Packard
power, plants. ,Of course
William- and James Packard
knew a little about power
plants: They owned and oper-
ated Packard Electric in War-
ren, Ohio, prior to founding
the Packard Motor Car Com-
pany in 1902.
The Packards were known
for many innovations in the
automobile industry. They
applied for a patent in 1900
for their car design, which
included a flexible shaft drive
that could be used in place of
the chain drives of that era.
The Packard brothers
introduced many firsts to the
industry including innova-
tions which included the
hook-up accelerator pedal,
the hand throttle, the 'H' gear
slot, and automatic spark
advance.
Packard made cars which
were known for their and style
and performance.
"Several Presidents rode in
Packard automobiles, mostly


in convertibles," Charles told
us. He was correct. Warren
Harding used a 1920 Packard
Twin-Six to ride to his inaugu-
ration in 1921. Harding was
also the first president to hold
a driver license.
How does Charles' car
compare to cars of today?
"For a 1939 it handles well,
is easy to steer and holds the
road well. As my grandpa used
to say, it purrs like a kitten,"
Charles smiled.
Want to see cars from 1910
up to and including 2006?
Drop by the Sun offices
tomorrow.
See the cars, meet the own-
ers and remember the fabu-
lous rides of the past and what
you may see on the roads in
the near future.
The oldest car registered
for the Saturday show at this
time is a 1910 International
Harvester high-wheeler. This
forerunner to the pickup was
intended for use in rural
areas. The large wheels pro-
vided sufficient ground clear-
ance to drive deeply rutted
roads. The International Har-
vester high-wheeler is steered
with a tiller instead of a steer-
ing wheel. Saturday, this his-
toric car will provide fun for
all who .iiend'
The vintage cars you'll see
will include a 1921 Willis
Sainte Claire, a 1927 Model T
Ford Seda n, a 1937 Packard
Convertible with a rumble
seat, a 1931 Ford Coupe, a
1942 Buick four door Sedan
and a 1946 Chevrolet Club
Coupe.
Cars from the '50s will
include a 1950 Chrysler Con-
vertible, a 1957 Chevrolet
hardtop, a 1960 Buick Con-
vertible, a 1962 Thunderbird
Roadster, a 1967 Corvette
Coupe, a 1970 Mustang Mach
I, a 1970 Buick Electra, four
door, a 1975 Cadillac Convert-
ible, a 1984 Cadillac Convert-
ible, a 1986 Corvette, 1993 and
a 1975 Cadillac Atlante.

PURIM'S WOMEN OF CONVICTION 12B


A soldier s quiet patriotism:





Resuming life without the fanfare


BY JOEL FOSTER
STAFF WRITER

We hear the stories of those who
went to Iraq and did not return.
We hear about the parents,
spouses and children left behind.
What we do not hear about are
those who return to pick up an inter-
rupted life. Nor do we hear about the
emotional struggles of the families
who must deal with that icy fear that
exists just under the calm demeanor
presented to the public.
Just days after the Sept. 11 bomb-
ing of the World Trade Center, Den-
nis Fuller enlisted. Within months,
he was an infantryman, private first
class, with the 1st Battalion, 187th
Infantry 101st Airborne in Kuwait
then Baghdad, Tikrit, Mosul and the.
Sinjar region close to the Syrian bor-
der.
"Deep down, I was just called to
do it," he said.
Among his best memories are his
interactions with the Iraqi people
while he was assisting with the
everyday activities associated with
his job.
"They are an awesome, proud,
beautiful people," he said. "They've
just been held down for so many
generations that the sense of an
American style of democracy has
initiated a certain amount of confu-
sion and uncertainty. Maybe dem-
ocracy as we know it isn't right for
every nation, but by introducing it,
maybe they (the Iraqis) can develop
their own form of it to suit their
needs. I think victory for us will be
just seeing the Iraqis thrive."
He remembers two major turning
points in the conflict that occurred
while he was there.
"In Mosul, we were on standby
providing perimeter security around
the area while another brigade from
our unit was involved in the fire fight
that took out Uday and Qusay (sons
of Saddam Hussein)," he said. '"And
it was ironic that the whole time I
was there we were looking for
Saddam, and it wasn't until one
month before I shipped back to the
states that he was caught. We were in
the Sinjar region at the time, near
the Syrian border on a training mis-
sion. We were about to ship back
south, and coming up over some
hilly terrain we saw what looked like
an entire village of Bedouins head-
ing for us, yelling. We thought we
were going to be attacked, so imme-
diately took up a defensive position.
But before engaging what we
thought was the enemy, what they
were yelling got translated: 'They
caught Saddam!' They knew where
we were, and they were heading
toward us to say thank you as if we
were the ones who did it."
Hesitatingly, he recalls stark reali-
ty.
"A buddy of mine, Damian
Heidelberg, had volunteered to do
mail duty, a daily run through a sec-
tion between Talafar and Mosul
known as Ambush Alley," Fuller said.
"He had a security guard, but they
weren't combat trained. He risked


his life every day to bring us word
from home. Because of the danger
of his job, he earned some R&R, a
mid-tour leave. He and 14 others
from our unit of the 101st got aboard
one of two Black Hawk choppers to
be transported to Mosul for a flight
out. They never got there. They were
shot down. One was hit by a missile
... there was a mid-air collision... "
Muscles in the clenched jaw
flexed.
Fuller's look was unwavering but
the eyes were troubled, clouded.
"There were one or two on board
who were on the way home to see a
newborn for the first time," he said.
When close friends die, commit-
ment becomes a challenge, the logic
of being at war is questioned. It is
only the morally and emotionally
strong who can shoulder such loads
immediately, check the M-16, and
go back out on patrol.
"He's a real hero," Fuller said qui-
etly, fingers toying with a pen. "He
gave everything a person can give."
Memories at opposite ends of the
Iraqi experience, he conveyed
through e-mails to parents Bob and
Freya Fuller who were waging their
own war against thinking the worst
back home in peaceful Venice.
"When he told us of his intention
to enlist, I told him to wait at least a
few months," Freya said, her soft
voice still holding the tentativeness
she must have felt back then, "but I
had to accept that he was a grown
young man. I had thought he might
become a minister, although he was
not overly religious as a boy; he just
has such a warm, loving heart. But
the infantry?"
"It wasn't as though he didn't have
choices," Bob Fuller said, perhaps
still digesting the reality. "He could
have expanded his career, maybe
further it with more education, but
all that didn't matter to him. I think
9/11 was the catalyst for the whole
thing. I was scared to death of his
decision to put himself in harm's
way. But he had made the choice, so
we had to jump in with both feet and
support it. Most kids aren't that self-
less. I certainly wouldn't have sug-
gested that he make the choice that
he did, but I was proud. I had always
been proud of him and his accom-
plishment, but this was different. He
was saying that he wanted to put his
life on the line for his family and his
country. It changes the way you look
at your son."
Before shipping out to the Mid-
east, Dennis had a short leave after
basic training to reunite with his
parents and enjoy the warmth of
home.
The concept of finality can sit like
an intruder, upsetting family situa-
tions, unseen but taking up more
space than all the trappings of child-
hood, the surfboards and parapher-
nalia of youth that might soon be
lost.
"We didn't cry while he was
home," Freya said proudly, fighting
back tears now as the memory
flooded back of his last days at home
before they would be relegated to

worry, compelled to watch TV with
its images of suicide bombings and
results of IEDs (Improvised Explos-
ive Devices), of young men losing
lives, waiting, worrying and praying,
symbols of the quiet courage that
rarely gets considered, encased in
private thoughts or nightmare sce-
narios, leaning on each other for
emotional support. "But while he
was there, every breath was a pray-
er."


"Prayer is the foundation of hope,
isn't it?" Bob asked.
Prayers answered
It was a month of nervous worry
at 528 North River Road in Venice.
Fuller's unit had been scheduled
to deploy from Iraq back to Fort
Campbell, Ky.
"There had been several false
alarms about the time of his return,"
Bob recalled, "but finally it hap-


opened. We were there when the
plane touched down."
"I had my doubts until I saw the
lights of the plane," Freya said.
The long wait was over, the emo-
tional agony and heartache a parent
can identify but never fully explain
to the uninitiated was at an end. The
prayers had been answered.
"I thought we would be able to

Much more relaxed than during the 10 months Dennis spent in Iraq's war
zone, Bob and Freya Fuller said that the prayers by friends and neighbors
for their son's safe return were a major comfort.

HAMANTASHEN

The traditional food for the festive holiday of Purim
is hamantashen, a three-cornered pastry with sweet
fillings. It is said to resemble the hat worn by Haman,
the evil prime minister of Persia who tried to con-
vince his king to destroy all the Jews in his kingdom.
Makes five dozen pastries.
Ingredients


'Never give up!'


Gondolier Sun garden colum-
nist Carol Mozik bought all-
new special formula bark to
replant her orchids. Thinking
this plant was done for, she


thought it was slated for the
compost heap. Then, she
spotted the blossom. It took
five years to create this little
guy.


4 eggs
1 cup oil
1-1/4 cup sugar
Fruit filling


2 tsp. vanilla
3 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
5-1/2 6 cups flour


Preparation
Beat together. Add approximately 5-1/2 to 6 cups of
flour. Knead until smooth enough to roll on floured
board. Roll out 1/8 inch thick. Can fill with desired
filling-apricot, poppy seed or blueberry. Fold three
sides to form triangle. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 min-
utes or until brown on greased cookie sheet.

body check
"during a game of
hockey may seem to be a very
-- dangerous element of the sport. The
fact is, though, that a study of 2,630
S..boy hockey players over two seasons
showed that high-impact body checks cause
fewer injuries to young players than accidental
collisions or falling into the boards or onto the
ice. Legal body checks accounted for 12% of
injuries while illegal checks caused 17%. The
study showed that introducing checking into
nine-year-olds' games produced a spike in
injuries; however, injury levels declined to
previous levels within a year once the players
adjusted to giving/receiving body checks. The best
S way to safeguard players is with protective
equipment and a proper knowledge of the game.

Many medications deplete potassium


SUZY COHEN, R.PH.
;; i i i I


Q: I take a high blood pres-
sure pill, Lasix furosemidee), and
know that I'm losing potassium
with each dose. Please explain
why this happens and tell me
why potassium is so important.
Can I replace the lost potassium
with foods? J.S., Huntington,
N.Y.
A: Many diuretics, but not
all, can cause your body to
lose more potassium than it
normally would, as can other
medications, including
aspirin, laxatives, steroids
and certain antibiotics. In
fact, most medications used
to control blood pressure zap
potassium.
Furosemide, a water pill, is
called a "loop" diuretic; it
forces your body to push out
excess water in an effort to
lower the pressure within
your blood vessels. Water
pills are prescribed in the
morning because they elicit
frequent trips to the bath-
room.
When you urinate all that
excess water, potassium goes


with it. The higher your
dosage of drug, the more
likely you are to run out of
potassium. That's not a good
thing, because we need
potassium to move our arms
and legs, to make our heart
beat and to keep our electri-
cal circuits working within
the body. Almost 20 percent
of people hospitalized in the
United States show up with
low potassium for one reason
or another.
The dosage of furosemide
varies widely, but the most
common dose is 40 mg a day.
There is a delicate balance
between potassium and
other substances such as
sodium, calcium, chloride
and magnesium. Low potas-
sium shows up as fatigue,
muscle weakness, arm or leg
cramping, tingling or numb-
ness, nausea, dizziness, faint-
ing, confusion and thirsti-
ness. Irregular heartbeat is
also possible. This can be
particularly dangerous, so I
emphasize the need to main-
tain normal levels of potassi-
um, especially if you take
offending medicines, go on
radical diets where you prac-
tically starve yourself, experi-
ence severe vomiting and
diarrhea, or exercise and
sweat a lot. All these can
affect potassium, especially
in children and the elderly.
Physicians routinely mon-
itor levels of potassium (and
other electrolytes) with blood
tests. Many people can eat
their way to proper potassi-


um levels, but some cannot
because the loss of potassi-
um is too significant. Lots of
people are told to eat
bananas and drink orange
juice daily to replenish the
lost potassium. Other potas-
sium-rich foods include
potatoes, artichokes, broc-
coli, lettuce, beans, nuts,
dried fruits like raisins or
prunes, all kinds of fresh
fruits and black strap
molasses.
Potassium is easy to find
and very inexpensive, but
cardiac patients need to be
closely monitored.
Supplements are available
and stronger doses are sold
by prescription.
Warning: Don't overdo
potassium; too much is just
as dangerous as too little.
Sometimes potassium is
rough on the esophageal
tract, especially with pre-
scribed tablets that come in
higher dosages. Take each
dose with a meal and plenty
of water to avoid destroying
your GI tract.
Readers: It's time for me to
collect your handy folk reme-
dies. Please e-mail me those
useful health tips or concoc-
tions passed down from
Grandma. I'll print some of
the best in a future column.

'Sunsets' is theme

At the general meeting of
the South Venice Civic As-
sociation Monday, March 20,
7 p.m., 720 Alligator Drive, we
are in for a real treat, and you
are invited to join us.
Bonnie Kaiser, past presi-
dent of the Arts and Culture

program about the arts in
South County and how the
arts benefit our community.
Her theme is centered around
"sunsets," a favorite subject of
all arts media.
The Venice Arts Center has
lent one of its beautiful sunset
paintings by Karen Hitt to
illustrate the visual arts. It will
also have information to
hand out. The painting may
be available for purchase that
night.
Joining Bonnie is Bruce D.
Rodgers, executive director of
the Hermitage Artist Retreat
on Manasota Key in Eng-
lewood, who will tell us about
the visual artists, composers
and writers of local and inter-
national acclaim who have
enjoyed living at the retreat to
re-energize their talents
through our fantastic sunsets
on the Gulf of Mexico.
The Venice Symphony has
provided brochures and in-
formation about its next sun-
set performance in Venice,
free of charge as a public ser-
vice.


Not to be left out, Venice
Little Theatre is donating the-
ater tickets on Monday night,
the winners to be drawn from
the ticket holders who attend
the meeting. When I asked
Bonnie what that had to do
with sunsets, she smiled,
"Well, they do perform after
sunset!"
The Arts and Culture
Alliance is an organization
that promotes the visual and
performing arts in our region.
Its next major event is the fifth

New fire lieutenant is





'paying it forward'


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

Romeo Carrano wanted
more out of life. The land-
scaping business he owned 10
years ago didn't offer what he
sought.
"I had no benefits, I had to
work all the time," Carrano
said.
He loved adventure, and
not knowing what would hap-
pen next excited him. So
Carrano looked into becom-
ing a firefighter.
Ten years later, Carrano, 41,
is North Port Fire Depart-
ment's newest lieutenant. He
replaces Lt. Peter Trapani,
who retired in February.
However, the road for
Carrano wasn't easy. His is a
story of courage, dedication,
true grit and a will to keep
hardships from getting him
down.
His first hurdle was going
to the fire academy. The prob-
lem was, he couldn't afford it.
"I enlisted in the military
first and became a Navy hos-
pital corpsman," he said.
"When I was done, the state of
Florida didn't accept any of
my training. So I still had to go
to school and pay for it any-
way."
Carrano became a fire-
fighter in Bradenton in 1991,
and four years laterjbirqd the
North Port Fire Department
as a firefighter-paramedic.
Life would throw another
obstacle in Carrano's way. Five
years ago, he almost lost his
career as a firefighter and
came close to losing his life
and that of his daughter,
Jessica.
Dead man
Jessica, who was 7 years
old then, had been begging
him to take her on a motorcy-
cle ride, Carrano recalls. So on
March 29, 2001, he picked her
up from Kingsway Elemen-
tary School.
While they were riding on
Peachland Boulevard in Port
Charlotte, a driver failed to
yield the right of way entering
an intersection and hit Car-
rano and his daughter.
At first, Carrano said, he
didn't realize the severity of
the crash.
"My main concern was


SUN PHOTOS E, -IH PLIROSE
After 10 years of service with the North Port Fire Department and five years of working with a
prosthetic leg, Romeo Carrano has been promoted to lieutenant at Station 82. Carrano says it
was the community and fellow firefighters who offered him support after his severe motorcycle
accident, and he's continued to pay them back.


finding Jessica, but I was held
down by emergency person-
nel," Carrano said. He was put
in a helicopter and flown to
Lee Memorial Hospital,
where doctors worked to save
his life.
"I remember overhearing a
doctor tell my mother they
were working on a dead
map," Carrano said.
Carrano lost his left leg,
just above the knee, in the
accident. But after his sur-
gery, he was still losing blood.
The doctors finally discovered
he was bleeding from one of
his kidneys, and removed
part of it.
Jessica was taken to Tampa
General in critical condition.
She suffered a head injury


and spent months in a body
cast.
She just recently had an
operation to lengthen her left
leg. She is now healthy, and
has fully recovered from her
injuries.
Shock absorber
Carrano then faced the
possibility of losing the job he
loved being a firefighter.
"I knew there was going to
be a challenge ahead of me,"
Carrano said. He was deter-
mined, and worked hard at
his recovery.
"While I was recovering in
the hospital, I had them
install weights on pulleys so I
could start exercising," he
said.


By May 2001, Carrano was
out of the hospital and he
began physical therapy. In
June, he got his prosthetic leg.
In July, he finished therapy,
and started light duty in Au-
gust.
"My leg is specially de-
signed for the work I do," Car-
rano said. His leg has shock
absorbers, hinges and is
made of steel.
Carrano was not alone in
his efforts. He received over-
whelming support from the
community and his fellow
firefighters.
"I don't know what I did to
deserve it. They were there for
me, and I didn't want to let

A steady diet of sweetness
and light soon grows weari-_
some. Turns out that a life of
constant debauchery is no
less boring.
As a gritty exploration of
Restoration England and as
an acting showcase for the
ever-astounding Johnny
Depp, Laurence Dunmore's
"The Libertine" is of consid-
erable interest. But as a dra-
matic enterprise it's stillborn.


Not to mention depressing
in the extreme.
The movie begins with
Depp, as the notoriously
wicked John Wilmot, Earl of
Rochester, staring directly
into the camera, wineglass
in hand, and informing us
that we're not much going
to like him and that, frankly,
that's just fine with him.
Today Wilmot is known
both as a major British poet
and for, in the words of Sam-
uel Johnson, "drunken gaiety
and gross sensuality ... with


an avowed contempt of
decency and order, a total
disregard to every moral, and
a resolute denial of every
religious observation."
Shot in grainy high-def
video with a muted pallet
that renders every sky gray
and blood a deep purple,
"The Libertine" follows Wil-
mot's brief life as he is re-
peatedly banished and rein-
stated by King Charles II.
Although Charles believes
Wilmot to be a brilliant writ-
er, he draws the line at open

In director Michael Haneke's typical

street outside. The unknown voyeur mails
the tapes accompanied by strange, vio-
lent drawings to Georges (Daniel
Auteuil), Anne (Juliette Binoche) and their
son Pierrot (Lester Makedonsky). As the
"gifts" become more personal and begin
to appear the work of someone who
knows him, Georges begins to fear that he
is being punished for wronging an Algerian
boy, Majid (Maurice B6nichou), at the
height of France's colonial occupation of
that North African nation. Wracked with
paranoia and rage, Georges suspects his
former friend is taking revenge, but when
he tracks him down we soon begin to
question who is victimizing whom. Haneke
is a master of exposing the way political
conflicts and prejudices irreparably dam-
age the psyche and the potential for
human intimacy and communication, and
CACHE deftly incorporates questions of
personal responsibility, justice and the
racism of France's past into an incredibly

The Libertine
John Wilmot, also known as the Earl of
Rochester, is a 17th-century poet who
found posthumous success. He was
known for his womanizing ways, drinking
and unruly behavior. This behavior helped
him to an early grave, most likely from
syphilis. Along the way, Wilmot wrote some
arguably brilliant poetry that was not
appreciated until after his death. The film
looks at his life and exposes the dichoto-
my of his vagrancy and genius.

Mrs. Palfrey at
The Claremont
The radiant Joan Plowright brings an
endearing warmth and stately bearing to
the title role of Mrs. Palfrey, an elderly
widow who forms an unlikely friendship
with a young writer. When she moves from
Scotland to London to be near to her 26-
year-old grandson, she ends up at the
shabby Claremont Hotel where the resi-
dents lead lives of quiet desperation.
While waiting for her grandson to return
her calls, she befriends a young writer
named Ludovic (Rupert Friend); the two
soon discover they have a bond tran-
scending age. As their friendship develops,
the young writer finds the story he has
been looking for and Mrs. Palfrey finds
the grandson she wished she had. A
warm, honest story of deep-rooted friend-
ship and artistic awakening. 108 mins.

Nell Young: Heart
of Gold
Academy Award-winning director
Jonathan Demme (whose film Stop
Making Sense is one of the definitive con-
cert movies) has turned his eye on anoth-
er rock icon Neil Young. Demme's grip-
ping documentary captures two nights in
the life of the defiant but aging rocker in
performances at Nashville's historic
Ryman Auditorium. This glimpse of one of
rock's elder statesmen is also the study of
a survivor. Young was diagnosed with a
potentially fatal brain aneurysm in 2005
and recorded the album "Prairie Wind"
four days before his surgery. Two months
later, the fully recovered singer-songwriter
collaborated with Demme to create this
personal and reflective portrait. With help
from the visionary cinematographer, Ellen
Kuras, Demme transforms Young's perfor-
mance of new material and classics into a
bittersweet reverie on life choices, family

ARIES (March 21-April
19). You run into
many people you
know as you go about your
business a sign that you are

into something you wouldn't
normally do.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20). Anticipation can
be agonizing! You
want that future date in your
mind to be NOW. Try to

fold into your life.

< GEMINI (May 21-June

younger is challeng-
ing what you believe. Maybe

You'll realize that cer-
.C tain issues persistently
return to your life, begging to

If not, the same situation
keeps happening in different
forms.

to the world is the

Books are on the way to Slidell, La.


KIM COOL



Soon after Hurricane Ka-
trina did its best to destroy
southern Louisiana and Mis-
sissippi, Venice resident Gail
Martin began a campaign to
send books to Slidell High
School in Slidell, La., The
school was destroyed and all
its library and text books lost.
She has already sent several
loads of good new books and
the Salvation Army of Venice
and others have helped by
carrying books to Slidell with
other supplies whenever a
truck has been headed that
way.
The people of Venice,
Publix, Walgreens, the Friends
of the Venice Public Library
its employees, Friends presi-
dent Ken Rodriguez and oth-
ers have contributed books
and much-needed office sup-
plies.
They contributed so much
that Martin was left with 18
boxes in search of the ship-
ping costs, which were esti-
mated to be in excess of $200
at the very least. Unfortun-
ately, this time the shippers
are scarce so Martin and her
husband are incurring the
.costs themselves.. That is
Going beyorid'the call fer'all'-1
'she has already done to help''
the Slidell High School
Library. See why I love to live
in Venice people like Gail
Martin!
Thanks to Martin and
many others, Slidell is slowly

Lauren Scuncio Birming-
ham, fifth generation in an
Italian family from Caserta
and Naples, is the owner of
Cooking Vacations Italy. It was
her passion for cooking, wine
and culture, and her love and
knowledge of Italy that
sparked her to pursue the
idea of Cooking Vacations.
Her great grandparents were
from Pico and Prata Sannita.
The family left Naples in the
early 1900s and set sail to
America in search of a better
life. Cooking Vacations is a


tribute to Lauren's great-
grandmother, Lucia Scuncio.
Lucia was a great cook, and
her recipes are used in Cook-
ing Vacations programs.
The program captures
more than 3,000 years of
Italian cuisine and takes you
into the life of Italian people
and their passion for food
and wine. Participants learn
authentic recipes and the
secrets of Italian cooking,
while eating and enjoying la
dolce vita (the sweet life). In
Italy, la dolce vita is not a spe-
cial occasion; it's a way of life.
Each location has been care-
fully chosen for its charm and
authenticity.

the same shot and he too had
orbs on his picture. That was
the only time either of us had
such spots on any of the more
than 1,000 photos we took on
the train trip. The hotel is sup-
posedly haunted.
Did I capture the ghosts or
not? All I know for sure is that
the trans-Canada trip was
filled with fabulous adven-
tures that I will long remem-
ber.
And I currently am writing

SOLDIER from Page IB
run out and give him a big
hug as soon as he got off the
plane," Freya said, but found
that military protocol trumps
parenthood every time. "They
got in formation and march-
ed right by," she recalled, a bit
of anger flashing in the blue
eyes, "and went into the hang-
ar to sing a song!"
Esprit de corps and the
elan of a combat-experienced
101st singing "Rendezvous
with Destiny"did not fare well
in the opinions of those
moms with sons freshly re-
turned safely from a war zone,
close enough to finally fling
arms around after what
seemed a lifetime of waiting.
"The Army's the Army,"
Bob said, matter-of-factly.
"They're not going to change
for any reason."
But family change was
ahead, positive change that
turned back the clock to days
of relative innocence and
surfing the waters off North
Jetty Road where, at age 15, he
had first met and become
interested in a 16-year-old
from Riverview High School
in Sarasota.
On an off chance, they met
again following Fuller's return
from Iraq.
A creative, vibrant, 2003
valedictorian of the Art In-
stitute of Fort Lauderdale with
her fashion degree in hand,
Marigot Craig instantly knew
that the on-again, off-again
friendship/romance of yes-
teryear had been replaced by
the realization that a lifetime
commitment was involved.
The pair married in August
2004, five weeks after the
reunion and five months
before his honorable dis-
charge as a corporal. They
now await the birth of their
first child, who, six and a half
months before its birth, has
changed the parents-to-be
landscape well before the par-
ents-to-be change the first
diaper.
They both miss the cama-

raderie among Army families,
the pageantry, the pride felt
when Dennis was in uniform;
and both would do it again,
eagerly so. But, as with his
decision to enlist and go to
war despite the hesitancy of
others, Fuller will set aside his
personal choices.
"My folks saw to it that I
had a great life growing up,"
he said. "I want the same for
my family. For me that means
civilian not military life."
There is also change in the
civilian Dennis Fuller since
his return, some physical -
severely damaged hearing
from being a machine gunner
and a sniper some attitudi-
nal: "I'm more cautious
around people now," he said,
reflecting on the Dennis
today as opposed to the pre-
Iraq Dennis, "much more
alert and aware of my sur-
roundings. And, overall, I
know what I'm supposed to
believe, as in the Army line. I


do believe in the Army, in my
buddies there, and believe in
the job that they are doing.
But, I don't know what to
think of the whole thing any-
more except that it's gone on
long enough. I want my bud-
dies to come home; but what
the government wants, the
government gets."
The optimism is tempered
now.
Dark political clouds over-
shadow any hopes of an
immediate cessation to hos-
tilities as the insurgency rat-
chets up its violence.
Fuller served his country
unhesitatingly and unswerv-
ingly, proud to have volun-
teered. But no flag waver is
this young patriot, nor one for
climbing atop the fence at
dawn and crowing his ac-
complishments to the world.
It's not in his make-up.
And so it is with his new life

"Going to work, not knowing what you're going to do everyday is what attracted me," said new
North Port Fire Lieutenant Romeo Carrano.


BLOOD from p...-


emergency entrance of the
hospital, 540 The Rialto, 8
a.m.-4 p.m., Thursday, March
23, and 7 a.m..-3 p.m., Friday,
March 24. Raffle prizes will be
given throughout the two-
day period. All donors will
receive a $10 gift certificate to
one of the following restau-
rants of their choice: Red Lob-
ster, Olive Garden, Bahama
Breeze or Smokey Bones.
Here is a tip to keep in
mind when donating blood.
Donors may be temporarily
deferred if the iron level in
their blood is not satisfactory.
If you are perhaps iron defi-
cient, consumption of certain
foods can help correct your
iron levels. The best sources
for iron include iron fortified
cereals and liver (chicken,


beef or pork). Good sources
for iron include lean meats,
greens (turnips, mustard, col-
lard, spinach), liverwurst,
oysters, clams, prunes (prune
juice), raisins, dried apricots,
dried peaches, dried beans
and green lima beans. Eggs,
enriched cereals, enriched
bread, blackberries, strawber-
ries, watermelon, black-eyed
peas and green peas are all
fair sources for iron.
Vitamin C is also needed
by your body to help you use
the iron you eat. Oranges
(orange juice), grapefruits
(grapefruit juice), tomatoes
(tomato juice), greens, broc-
coli, watermelon, raw cab-
bage, cantaloupe and straw-
berries are the best sources
for Vitamin C.


PAYING fromagesB
them down," he said. "If it
wasn't for them, I couldn't
have come back."
Knowing he could never
repay the generosity he re-
ceived, Carrano said he de-
cided to "pay it forward."
He talks to people who lost
legs, and encourages them to
keep following their dreams.
Carrano also takes trips to
Bethesda Medical Center in
Maryland to talk with Ma-
rines coming back from Iraq
who lost legs.
No doubts
Carrano had to adapt and
learn new ways to do his job.
"I would come in and prac-
tice," Carrano said. "I can't


drive off my left leg when
pulling a hose, so I have to do
a pull and turn."
Going up a ladder, Carrano
said he is a little bit slower, but
learned new techniques that
allow him to carry the weight
needed.
When he took his physical
agility test, he passed it on the
first try.
Carrano had one more
hurdle to face. Once he was
back full-time, his fellow fire-
fighters had some serious
doubts whether he could save
their lives if he had to.
"I heard they were talking
about that behind my back,"
Carrano recalls. "Then one
day, one of the men came to
me and told me what the
squad's concerns were."


"So I took them all to the
burn house, and dragged
every one of them out of the
building," Carrano said. 'After
that, there were no doubts."
Fire Chief William Taaffe
said the entire department
respects Carrano for his per-
severance and determina-
tion.
"It takes a lot of physical
ability to be a firefighter-para-
medic, and Romeo has over-
come some tremendous
obstacles," Taaffe said. "We
are proud to have him as a
member of the North Port
Fire Rescue District."

PHOTO COURTESY OF THE FULLER FAMILY
. TWrYlives about to become one future, Marigot Craig and Cdip:
Dennis Fuller pose on the eve of their August 2004 wedding.


SOLDIER f om wage io B
in the business world.
The lithe, hard-bodied
young man of 24 sits at his
desk in the newly painted
Allstate office, 744 Venice Ave.
The room seems cav-
ernous, crisp.
Fuller thinks before an-
swering, sure of his directions
in life.
With Allstate, he is part of
the corporate world, but as
with his time in the 101st,
Fuller is less concerned with
an overall war as he is with the
small successes.


"I see myself as an advo-
cate for people," Fuller said.
"The most important thing I
can do in this job is to educate
by answering any questions a
person has about the prod-
uct, whether it's my product
or someone else's. If I sell you
a policy, fine, I have bills to
pay, too. But if I don't, no mat-
ter. Maybe somewhere down
the line, your situation in life
may change, and you'll re-
member me and what we
talked about."
Indeed, if you sit down and
talk with Dennis Fuller, you
will remember him.

They never mention sin or hell?


Purim's women of conviction


DONNA MARTONFI



Please allow me to present
a thought-provoking meta-
phor and then to ask you a
few pertinent questions.
Let us suppose that one
day you discovered that you
were born with a noxious
medical condition. You real-
ized it was so serious that you
needed to seek immediate
professional attention. Des-
perate for a cure, you instinc-
tively headed for the nearest
hospital.
Once there, you soon dis-
covered that this particular
hospital didn't practice, or
believe in any kind of radical
surgical intervention. Their
policy didn't even require the
most basic examination. Even
though this serious and ter-
minal malady was clearly out-
lined in all the medical jour-
nals, they presumed it could-
n't possibly be a life-threaten-
ing condition because it was
such a common, age old
problem. But if found wrong,
they were certain you really
didn't want to hear the truth
anyway so they watered down
your grave situation and com-
pletely downplayed your ill-
ness. They simply didn't want
to scare you. The entire med-
ical staff feared that if they
adhered to some black and
white diagnosis that you
might panic and then go else-
where for a second prognosis.


They especially avoided any
mention of "blood" in case
you were squeamish and
omitted words like "sickness"
and "disease" so as not to
upset you. Their main objec-
tive was to calm your nerves
and lessen your fears by just
encouraging you to relax and
think positive.
They also presented you
with a list of reasons, com-
piled mostly by veterinarians,
of why they assumed this dis-
ease might not even be lethal.
They showed you X-rays of
the other patients at this insti-
tution who were clearly in a
much worse condition than
you, but were plodding along,
nonetheless. Some enthusi-
astically shared stories about
their aches and pains and
previous operations. They
even showed you their scars.
You loved this hospital! It
made you feel soooo good.
You loved the atmosphere!
You loved the nonjudgmental
attitude of the nurses and
doctors. You loved the fact
that no one told you that you
had to stop smoking or lose
weight or eat right. Nobody
insisted you take medication.
The only stipulation was that
you had to come back often
and listen to a few boring lec-
tures about some historic
chief of staff. These lectures
would be highly beneficial
because they would entitle
you to become a part of the
medical team that in turn
would permit you to wear a
stethoscope and allow you to
start taking everyone's else's
blood pressure. This little bit
of knowledge and instruction
would also allow you to prac-
tice medicine on the other
patients and write our 0iews
and findings on their medical
charts. Then after you spent
some time around the oper-
ating room they insisted you


,C A
RABBI ANN WHITE



Once again, we as Jews
approach another of those
holidays where the old adage


applies: "They tried to kill us.
We survived. Let's eat!" This is
the case with Purim, which
we celebrated this year on the
14th of March (Adar 14 on the
Jewish calendar).
Purim is a festive holiday, a
topsy-turvy celebration of
frivolity and noise making.
The Story of Esther is read to
regale her heroism as she
saves the Jewish people from
the bad guy, Haman. And
with each mention of
Haman's name, all who hear
the story make as much noise
as they can, using groggers
(noisemakers), stamping


their feet, booing, in an
attempt to blot out this evil
villain.
As a rabbi and a woman, I
often look to the biblical
telling of the story, the ancient
wisdom, to see how it applies
to our modem day life. This
melodrama has many inter-
esting characters, twists and
turns.
The first woman we en-
counter is Queen Vashti, a
beautiful woman, married to
King Ahasuerus in the land of
Persia. One night, the king

perform a biopsy or two since
you were now considered
such an expert.
You now wondered why
you had been so concerned
about your original predica-
ment. There was really noth-
ing to worry about because
this entire experience con-
vinced you that you weren't
really sick in the first place.
Unfortunately for you,
everyone was ignoring the first
rule of medicine, which is,
"There is a way which seemeth
right unto a man, but the end
thereof are the ways of death"
(Proverbs 14:12 KJV). There-
fore, you needlessly perished
from a disease whose cure was
available since the beginning of
time.
Why would you go to such
a hospital? Why would you
risk your life at a place like
this? Or send your loved ones
there? Isn't it obvious they are
going to let you die?
Ridiculous analogy? Not if
you interject the word
"church" and use it as a paral-
lel. The application is the
same. There are spiritual in-
stitutions cropping up every-
where that purport to prom-
ise you eternal life but keep
you in spiritual darkness.
"What spiritual darkness?"
you might ask. The answer is
very simple. Sin has caused
you to be born with a very
serious terminal spiritual
condition. Therefore your
soul is in desperate need of
redemption. There is ONLY
one remedy. There is ONLY
one cure. It is found at the
place that preaches Jesus. He's
the one and only "great physi-
cian" performing deep, pene-
trating surgery at the "Hos-
pital for Sinners". It is his
blood alone that can wash-
away your sins. Only he can
make you well. He'll NOT LET
you burn in hell.

had his friends over for a feast,
and after consuming much
libation, he commanded a
messenger to fetch Queen
Vashti so he could show off
her beauty to all of the men
present. Vashti knew that the
feast was now at a level where
alcohol had taken over the
common sense of the party-
goers. She also knew that the
king, in order to show off her
beauty, would at a minimum,
ask her to remove her veil,
which was customary for
women to wear in public in
those days.
Vashti declined the invita-
tion. And of course, we know
that this invitation was not
meant to be voluntary. There
was no RSVP The king was
enraged, and banished her
from the kingdom the very
next day.
Was Vashti right to disobey
the king? Was she right to dis-
obey her husband? Look at
the consequences. She is an
example of a woman who
knew her own code of ethics
and followed them, at what-
ever consequence. She was
not Jewish. But she was a
woman who followed her
sense of self and her sense of
her god at great expense to
her life.
Of course, by light of day
(and sobriety), the king now
regretted his actions and
sought a new wife. A beauty
pageant of sorts was held
throughout his kingdom and
during this search, he finds
the beautiful Esther, who be-
comes the new queen. Awed
by her beauty, he was not
aware that she was Jewish.
She had previously lived with
her cousin, Mordecai, be-
cause she was an orphan.
Mordecai encouraged this
marriage as an opportunity
for her and perhaps, for her
people.
As the plot thickens, the
evil and arrogant Haman
meets Mordecai, who refuses
to bow down to him. Being a
Jew, Mordecai tells Haman
that he bows to no man.
Haman, in typical villain fash-
ion, orders ,all of the Jews
killed. (He drew lots to decide
which day to kill the Jews -
hence the name Purim, which
is derivative from the word
"lot.")
Mordecai now tells Esther
that she has to confront the
king to save her people.
Esther knows the power of an
angry king since the story of
Vashti is fresh in their minds.
She is afraid to go to the king
uncommanded. No one does
this. And yet, she puts her
fears aside and with her con-
victions in the lead, she goes
to the king, tells him she is
Jewish and asks that he save
the Jewish people from Ha-
man's evil plot to kill them.
And since the old adage
applies, "we survived and we
ate," you can trust that the
story had a happy ending.
I look to Esther and how
she must have felt. A young
orphan, plummeted by her
beauty into the royal family.
Not deceiving the king about
her religion he seemed self-
centered enough not to ask.
And yet, she knew this secret

in her heart every minute of the
day. When the decree was seal-
ed to IdU all Jews, she had to find
her own source of power, brav-
ery and faith to confront him
and save the Jewish people.
Both women lived lives in a
patriarchical society. Yet both
women maintained their
inner sense of self, their cour-
age and their faith in their
respective gods or God. Their
inner conviction is no differ-
ent from what we strive for
today: To be able to live lives
of conviction and to uphold
our faith and spiritual beliefs
no matter what challenge we
face. Today, as we see the
rights of women to follow
their inner conviction -being
stripped away, we have these
ancient role models urging us
to stand up for our beliefs, for
what we believe to be sacred.
The courage of Vashti and
Esther can guide us along our
journey.
And now let's eat!

Offered for sale at 282 Venice Palms Blvd. is this three-bedroom, two and one-half-bath home. Landscaping adds a different look to the Ashley model home built by Schroeder Construction.





Venice Palms homeowners enjoy nature trail


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Every Florida develop-
ment or subdivision has pre-
serve areas.
Too few have a system of
nature trails that allow resi-
dents to enjoy those special
areas, which are usually
teeming with the flora and
fauna of this state.
Venice Palms is one of the
choice exceptions. Located
north of East Venice Avenue,
the subdivision backs up to
Blackburn Canal. A nature
trail system connecting to the


subdivision in four places
traces the edge of the canal.
Prudential Village Realty
Realtor CharrylYouman has re-
cently listed two homes for sale
at Venice Palms, just a short
stroll from the nature trail.
Located at 297 Venice
Palms Blvd. is a three-bed-
room, two-bath split plan
home. Tuscan influences can
seen throughout the home,
which has crown moldings,
faux-painted walls, hand-
troweled Pro-tile deck surface
around the pool, upgrade
Victorian fixtures in the bath-
rooms and bevel-edged Poly-


stone counters in the kitchen.
A glass backsplash makes
cleanup as easy as a squirt of
glass cleaner and a quick
wipe down. There also is an
outdoor grill on the pat-
io/pool deck.
The house has a decidedly
cozy feel despite its 1,823-
square-foot size.
Chlorine-free, the salt sys-
tem pool is solar heated.
Within the attached two-
car garage is a utility sink that
is useful forgardeners.
The house has been listed
for $459,000 and can be seen
by appointment.


Located at 282 Venice
Palms Blvd. is a slightly larger
2,094-square-foot, three-bed-
room, two and one-half-bath
home with a large entrance
porch framed by three pillars,
which support the arch-
shaped edge to the porch
roof.
French doors lead from the
entrance porch into the great
room plan home, which fea-
tures an open family-
room/kitchen area at the
back, with a greenbelt view.
The caged, heat-pump
heated inground swimming
pool is equipped with an


automatic cleaning system.
Formerly a Schroeder
model home referred to as
The Ashley, the house has
several extras such as a built-
in, extra-long sidebar and
nook in the dining room, a
breakfast area in the kitchen
and yet another retreat area
in the master bedroom.
The master bath has the
feel of a European spa with
separate walk-in shower and
Roman tub and twin vanity
sinks. There are two spacious
walk-in closets within the
master suite.
Tray ceilings enhance the


family room and the master
bedroom.
Listed for $485,000, the
house can be seen by ap-
pointment. Call Youman at
468-5215.
