HIGH-RANKING VISITOR: COMMANDER IN TOWN


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER, .

AVenice man was arrested
and charged with carjacking
about 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
Michael Maggio, 43, of
Venice, was taken out of a taxi
cab at, Shamrock Boulevard
and U.S. 41 at gunpoint by
Venice police officers.
,According to VPD De-
tective Sgt. Mike Treanor, the
victim and her young daugh-
ter had gone into a phone
store in a nearby shopping
center. Maggio had gotten
into the victim's van and was
waiting for her.
The mother and daughter
came out of the store and got
into the van.
Maggio was hiding in the
back.
The daughter saw him and
screamed.


Maggio grabbed the moth-
er but she and her daughter
were able-to escape unharm-
ed.
Maggio drove away in the
van. Police found the aban-
doned vehicle near an adult
book store on U.S. 41 just
north of Shanmrock.
Checks into motel
Witnesses apparently saw
Maggio check into the Days
Inn just south of Shamrock
Drive on U.S. 41.
Police went to his room
but Maggio was not there.
They started checking
businesses in the area to try to
find him.
Investigators were able to
learn that Maggio had called a
taxi service.
A short time later, police
found him in a taxi.
In addition to the carjack-


ing charge, police charged
Maggio with domestic bat-
tery.
Treanor said grabbing the
woman in the van constituted
a battery.
Police were also able to
recover money that Maggio
had taken from the victim's
purse.
Treanor said Maggio did
not appear to use a weapon
during the carjacking. No
weapon was found, on him
when he was taken into cus-
tody.
According to court records,
Maggio has a criminal history
dating back to 1995, includ-
ing burglary, robbery and bat-
tery.

Com-mander: Stay the


course in war on terrorism


Project managers hope to finishVenetian
Waterway Park bike path segment by July.


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR,

"':-Sarasota County is going to
help finish the Venetian
Waterway Park bike path.
Now it just has to find the
money.
Venice Area Beautification
Inc. asked the county for a
donation last month to help
complete the eastern side of
the Intracoastal Waterway
bike path. Cost overruns
caused VABI to run out of
money and come up 2,100
feet short of connecting the
path between the Venice
Avenue Bridge and the Circus
Bridge.
Gary Downing, Sarasota
County manager of road con-


'EDITION


struction, confirmed Thurs-
day that he has approval to
finish the project. His only
delay is identifying thle fund-
ing source -7 sidewalk pro-
gram, road-program, etc. -
that has an extra $166,000 to
spare.
"We're trying to find the
money we need," Downing
said. "I haven't got all the
details or the money in place,
but once we do, we'll be able
to cut the (purchase order).",
Downing does not have to
get county commission
approval because the project
was previously approved as a
"unit price" contract one
job for a specified amount. An
update was sent to county
commissioners by e-mail
March 6, and Downing was
allowed to proceed.
There is no firm timeline,
but Downing thinks he'll only
need another two weeks of
searching before he finds
enough finding. Sarasota
County hopes to be done with
the work by mid-July.
The 10-mile concrete bike
path along the waterway was
first conceived 15 years ago.
This will be Sarasota County's


direct cash contribution to
the project.
The island side of the path
is complete, except for the
portion running behind
Waterford Companies' three
condominium towers.
VABl's request comes at
the same time the county is
shopping land leases for the
railroad right-of-way land
running parallel troABI's bike
path. Sarasota County bought
the railroad land to create a
12-mile bike path, but will not
build past the Venice Train
Depot because VABI's project
covers the final 2 miles.
' Monty Andrews, a VABI
board member, doesn't have a
problem with the potential
land leases because he's been
assured a vegetative buffer
will remain between the bike
path and industrial business-
es along Seaboard Avenue.
The longtime bike path
advocate is just happy the
county is stepping in to help
finish the project.
"We would appreciate it so
much," Andrews said. "It
would save us from having to
go out to the grant process
and try to round up the
money."

The national commander of the
American Legion visits No-Vel
Post 159 in Venice with a
no-nonsense message of unity
and patriotism.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Thomas L. Bock, national commander
of the American Legion, was in town
Wednesday with an entourage of state
and national leaders to stop by No-Vel 159
Post for a meet-and-greet with members.
The Venice post, with 2,800 members is
one of the larger ones in Southwest
Florida, surpassing that of Sarasota.
Bock, on a four-day tour of Florida VA
hospitals and Legion posts, took the
opportunity to update local veterans
about his travels throughout the country
and a worldwide tour visiting troops over-
seas in places such as Baghdad, Okinawa,
the Korean DMZ and Guantanamo Bay.
His message: Stay the course on the
war on terrorism.
Bitter lesson *
For Bock, it's all about Resolution 169,
passed at the 87th national convention of
the American Legion in Honolulu on Aug.


The resolution outlines the American
Legion's sup ort for the war on terrorism.
It urges all Americans to stand united in
their support for the war on terrorism,
and authorizes the national commander
"to engage in whatever means necessary
to ensure the united support of the
American people."
For Bock, that means straight talk
about the news media's coverage of the
war.
The resolution "empowers us to unite
Americans to back our troops and win the
war," Bock said. "We remember the 1960s
and 1970s. We don't want that to happen
again."
Bock dismisses protesters of the war on
terrorism who try to "separate the war
from the warrior" by saying they support
troops but not the war in Iraq.
He believes '60s protesters never suc-
cessfully made the separation, treating
war veterans with disdain upon their
return from Vietnam. Bock hears the same
arguments being made again, with poten-
tially the same deadly results for service-
men and freedom-fighters overseas.
"The bitter deadly lesson is that the
truth was never told after the (Vietnam)
war protesters overtook our media and
sabotaged home-front determination to

The dangers of uncon-,
trolled growth are many and
the quicksand the county
commissioners must wade
through can
be treacher-
ous.
With that
in mind, the
Sarasota
commission-
ers got into a
heated dis-
cussion
Wednesday Thaxton
on how best
to deal with growth, specifi-
cally how to pay for the miles
and miles of roads needed to
handle 'a ballooning popula-
tion.
The discussion started out
as a conversation to set the
county's priorities for major
work programs and quickly


OUR TOWN SECTION


spiraled into a debate about
which roads need to be done
and when.
Leading the debate was
commissioner Jon Thaxton.
He first critic ed rating the
Englewood Interstate Con-
nector high on the priority list
when the widening of section
of U.S. 41 north of Venice
were relatively low.
Thaxton said traffic at the
height of the season will
become the everyday traffic.
"The worst is yet to come,"
he said. "Congestion is going
to be a way of life."
He added that if the com-
mission continues on the
path of dealing with road'
issues in the way it has -
paying for it when it can and
hoping more money can
become available traffic in
the area will grind to a halt.
This doomsday scenario
can be compared to what
happened in Fort Lauderdale,


where grid-
lock is the
norm rather
than the ex-
ception.
Commis -
sion Chair
David Mills
took offense
to the com- Mills
ment, saying,
"We are not Fort Lauderdale."
In perspective
Other commissioners were
taken aback byThaxton's feel-
ings toward overall board pol-
icy.
"Life is good. Everything
will work out," Mills said, try-
ing to remain positive.
County, Administrator Jim
Ley Said that there have been
many people who have pre-
dicted the end of civilization,
including Calvin Coolidge

Dolomite hearing set

From the March 20, 1975, Venice Gondolier Sun.


STAFF REPORT

The city of Venice has
joined the Venice Farms
Association in protesting the
opening of the Venice
Dolomite Company's mine
east of the Myakka River.
Venice officials went on
the record saying they were
opposed to the move because
of the stress it would place on
city roads, noise pollution
and other factors.
The owners of the mine
plan to run up to 40 trucks a
day, which means an addi-


tional 40 return trips, officials
noted.
Over a 10-hour day trucks
would travel East Venice
Avenue, Venice Farm Road
and Jackson Road about once
every 7.5 minutes.
Venice Farms residents are
concerned over the destruc-
tion of the present roadway,
which they claim is not ade-
* quate for heavy truck traffic.
Part of Jackson Road has
only a sealcoating. The re-
mainder is a narrow roadway,
which association president
Glenn Nelson points out has

Also of concern is the actu-
al mining operation. Dust
from the plant once traveled
great distances, according to
many residents of the area.
They now fear similar dust
problems will plague them
during dry weather. The plant
was closed in 1968 and has
been idle until now.
Although area farmers
would welcome dolomite,
residents point out that
numerous new homes have
been built in the area since

1968. More are going up at
present.
Blasting from the mining
operation is also expected to
be a nuisance, the association
claims.
The Sarasota County
Mining Committee has ap-
proved the reopening. That
body is concerned only with
mining aspects, however.
,Problems such as traffic and
noise are the problem of
county commissioners, who
must make the final move
after a public hearing sched-
uled for March 25 (1975).


Old man winter wants your
attention.
Yet another dying breath
of his cold air ,will leave
inland areas with, tempera-
tures near 40 for the,next three
nights. Coastal areas will drop
to about 43 degrees, the
National Weather Service, pre-
dicts.
Tropical Bob says "'bah."
But this indeed is a transi-
tion time of year rfor us. We
should expect rogler-coaster
weather. Old man winter is
doing his dead-level best to
prevent the child iof spring
from being born.
He won't succeed, of
course. These are his final
exhalations.
Bundle up. You'll feel the

New system checks for sex offenders


BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER
-. .Sarasota. County schools
An -10 torpu re.fiz ,Nd sys-
tem known as Raptor \\ill be
used to check all visitors
entering schools in the county,
whether the visitor is a parent
known to school personnel
ora first-time visitor.
Englewood ,Elementary
!School recently acquired the
iRapt6r systeni Officially the
V-soft system from Raptor
:Technologies of Houston -
iand the rest of the schools in
[Sarasota. County will have
;devices in place soon, said
SheilaWeiss, communications


and community relations
representative for the school
district. .
"The verification process
operates" quickly," Englewood
Elementary School Principal
Pam'rBuchanan said. I
"In a matter of moments,
we can identify sexual preda-
tors and offenders.,", she con-
tinued, 'dIt's a state-of-the-
art electronic system that is
being utilized. I highly sup-
port it. Basically, it's making
sure' individuals are falling
under the Jessica Lundsford
Act, and r:haking sure we have
a safe school for our children."

Weiss said the system already

sex offender trying to enter
school property in the county.
"That said to us, our chil.
dren's lives are very impor-
tant," she said. "If this can
help one child from being
harmed, it was worth it."
Check and double-check
Larry Leon, who is in
charge of the district's new
security system, said the
device instantly checks dri-
ver's licenses or identifica-
tion' cards to" determine
whether someone is a" regis-
tered or undocumented sex
offender.
"If you do have a match, it
automatically text-messages
law enforcement." he said.
"The resource officer at,
the school and the sheriff's
office get messages,, then
check to make sure the in-
formation is correct," Leon
said.
Raptor Technologies has a
database from 48 states that
is updated continually.
When an ID card is scanned,
it goes to the database and


checks everything under
fields such as name, age and
date of birth.
If a. visitor is cleared, the
system .prints out a visitors
pass. '.
Leon said his office has
put the system in half of the
schools in the district. The
system is first being installed
in elementary schools, and
then will be put in other
schools.
Buchanan said the system
has other capabilities, other
than identifying people with
a history of sex offenses.
"Once the driver's license
is scanned and the results
are verified, we also verify
what the nature of the visit
is before the adult goes to a
classroom," she said. "There
are. also certain people who
are allowed on campus, but
have limited access. And,
this will. identify who those
people are."

Hurricane evacuation route money debated


Commissioner Jon Thaxton said the project
deserves a lower priority, while commissioner
Shannon Staub said three counties will depend
on lit for disaster preparation.


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

When Sarasota County
commissioners were asked to
accept a redistribution of
major improvement project
priorities Wednesday, the dis-
cussion turned into a debate
about whether some road
projects are taking money
away from others.
Commissioner Jon Thaxton
said his first concern was with
ranking the Englewood Inter-
state Connector as the third-
highest project on the county's
major road project list, which is
supplied to the Sarasota/Man-
atee Metropolitan Planning


Organization.
"I don't look at that in the
greater scheme of things," Thax-
ton said 6f the interstate con-
nector route. "It's in the boon-
docks. It is largely undeveloped.
I drive this road regularly, and 1
don't see the priority"
But commissioner Shan-
non Staub objected to Thax-
ton's characterization of the
project, saying that it has
been identified by three
counties Sarasota, Char-
lotte and Lee as a key hur-
ricane evacuation route.
The corridor also sits
where 30,000 new residential
units are going to, be built on
the site of the ThOmas Ranch,


a project now called West
Villages.
Ripple effect
The interstate connector
had been the No. 2 priority for
the MPO until the Florida
SDepartment of Transportation
removed the widening of U.S.
301 north from Sarasota to the
Manatee County line from its
current work program.
FDOT moved the U.S. 301
project outside of its five-year
work program, creating the
ripple effect in its requests
from the MPO, said Clarke
Davis, a county road planner.
With U.S. 301 back in the
'MPQ priority list, Davis said it
is necessary to update the list,
which is why the item went
before the board. ,
Thaxton's main, objection
to the interstate connector
project is that it is high on the
list because it is relying heavi-


ly on federal money.
Davis said there is a federal
funding advantage to seeking
money for the EIC, which
does not get used against the
county's other efforts in seek-
ing state or federal money.
"I am not so sure the
money is not going to come at
the expense of other pro-
jects," Thaxton said. "I want
reassurances."
He said placing the road-
way as the No. 3 project sends
a message that other projects,
such as the widening of U.S.
41 north of State Road 681,
'are a lower priority.
"There is no way it is a more
important project," Thaxton
said.
Staub disagreed, saving the
widening of U.S. 41 in the
Osprey area is relatively new
to the project list.
"We should be concentrat-
ing on U.S. 301," she said.


"The Venice Bypass (which is
now the No. 2 project of the
list) is a decade away. The EIC
is right where it should be."
Flushed
All of the federal money is
considered high-priority fund-
ing, it is not counted against
other requests and is typically
kept in a separate pool, Davis
said.
But county Administrator
Jim Ley said state law recently
changed, putting all federal
money into the same pot,
meaning that the money is
counted as received money
overall for the county and is
not in a separate pool.
"It is a function of state that
that didn't exist two years ago
when the county 'started
seeking money for the EIC,"
Ley said. "The whole toilet
flushed on our money."
Commissioner Nora Pat-


terson agreed, saying FDOT
District 1 Secretary Stanley
Cann also sees the funds as
money planned for Sarasota
County.
"As long as thedistrict sees it
that way, then that is the way
we are impacted," Patterson
said.
Commission Chair David
Mills called any idea to lower
the interstate connector pri-
ority counterproductive.
"Money comes up," Mills
said. "If it does, we can get this
project done, and that opens
up money for other projects."
Davis said most of the feder-
al money for the EIC remains in
a separate pot of money for the
purchase of the right of way,
and that effort is ongoing.
Wednesday, the commis-
sioners eventually approved
the major improvement pro-
ject priorities list 4-1, with
Thaxton dissenting.

Suppo V-LIrt for Sarasota-D.CI airline route growingI




Support for Sarasota-D.C. airline route growing


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


There is a full-court press
being put on the officials to
promote the potential non-
stop airline service between
Sarasota-Bradenton Interna-
tional Airport and Reagan
National Airport in Washing-
ton, D.C.
US Airways announced
Monday it has filed an appli-
cation with the U.S. Depart-
ment of Transportation to
begin nonstop, year-round
service to Washington, D.C.
Since then, airport officials
have been contacting every-
one they can to send letters of
support to Transportation
Secretary Norman Mineta.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners did so during their


regular meeting Wednesday.
Commissioner Paul Mer-
cier introduced the idea dur-
ing the board meeting and
said the letter should also be
sent to U.S. Rep. Katherine
Harris and Sens. Mel Mar-
tinez and Bill Nelson.
Commission Chair David
Mills said the new route is a
breakthrough for the airport.
"People will be driving
from other communities to
take it," Mills said. "I think it's
great. It beats having to fly to
Atlanta and change planes."
County Administrator Jim
Ley said said it creates an
interesting and competitive
situation at the airport which
can only boost its use.
Connectivity
SRQ President and Chief


Executive Officer Fred Piccolo
is meeting with the congres-
sional delegation in Wash-
ington to help lend a person-
al touch to the application.
"We believe the communi-
ty's response is a critical part
in the process of getting this
service approved," Piccolo
said.
Piccolo said the slot US
Airways ,is seeking is a valu-
able commodity and shows
how important SRQ's place in
the airline industry has be-
come.
The airline is seeking a
coveted slot a specific take-
off and landing time at that
heavily regulated airport.
Reagan National is one of
three airports in the country
to required such slots be
approved. Several other air-


lines have applied for the
same slot.
"It shows their interest in
the viability of this airport
market," Piccolo said. "It
would also allow a greater
connectivity for our cus-
tomers."
US Airways is the largest
airline to serve Reagan Na-
tional, meaning people could
go there and get anywhere.
US Airways chose the
Sarasota-Bradenton because
it believes the year-round
regional population of
700,000 is being under serv-
ed.
The airline plans to alter-
niate between regional jet air-
craft and larger mainline air-
craft would allow the airline
to maintain daily service
throughout the year.


The airline already has
direct service to Charlotte,
N.C. out of SRQ.
Constant discussions
The process for applying
for the service should take 60
days, Piccolo said.
Upon receipt of the appli-
cation, the U.S. DOT con-
ducts a review and gives the
public an opportunity to
comment on the proposed
route before making a final
determination.
Anyone interested in send-
ing their own comments of
support for the US Airways
slot can do so be e-mailing
the U.S. DOT, care of Mineta
at dot.comments@dot.gov.
SRQ is currently served by
six major airlines and two,
commuter airlines that pro-


vide scheduled commercial
service.
More than 1.3 million pas-
sengers went through the air-
port in 2005.
The airport has several
similar inquiries in the past
few months.
In December, start-up air-
line Virgin America listed the
airport among 38 potential
destinations. Jet Blue has also
mentioned the airport being
a possible destination some-
time in 2007.
"We are in constant dis-
cussions about expanding
our services with a variety of
airlines," Piccolo said. "This is
an exciting time for us."

Legislators could curtail citizens' right to amend Constitution


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Florida voters have amend-
ed the state Constitution 22
times since 1968 through a citi-
zen initiative process that
includes signed petitions and
referendums a legal avenue
around the legislature that
some lawmakers would like to
make more difficult during this
spring's session.
Bills have been filed that
would: 1) require a two-thirds
statewide majority to pass
some budget measures; 2)
limit the subjects citizen ini-
tiatives can address; 3) put
stricter regulations on peti-
tion signature-gathering; and
4) move some amendments
into the Florida Statutes.
While advocates for the
right to petition oppose all of
them, it is the last one that has
many concerned. If adopted, it
could remove some voter-
approved amendments from
protection provided by the
Constitution and place them in
statutes that could then be
altered by legislators.
.Among the many citizen
initiatives approved by voters
in recent years are raising the
minimum wage to $6.15 an
hour; a workplace smoking
ban; reducing public school
class sizes; a voluntary state


pre-kindergarten program;
and full financial disclosure
by elected officials.
"Politicians in Tallahassee
appear to fear citizen initiatives
as a means to dilute legislative
power," said Florida League of
Women Voters, President
Dianne Weatley-Giliotti. "Flor-
ida's citizenry should not be
denied the power to determine
the future of their own Con-
stitution."
State Rep. Nancy Detert, R-
Venice, isn't so sure. "We have
a representative form of gov-
ernment that does not rule by
survey," she said. "We hear
testimony in committees and
see what the effect of a law
would be versus making deci-
sions about 75 words that
appear on a ballot."
If the citizen initiative pro-
cess becomes a popular way to
circumvent the deliberative
process, Detert suggested,
"Pretty soon we wouldn't need
the state Legislature any more
and we could govern Nwith a
120-page ballot filled with ref-
erendum questions."
A group known as Save the
Voters' Voice has formed to
oppose the four bills and any
other threats to the citizen ini-
tiative process. It is a coalition
of 30 organizations, among
them the Sierra Club, Planned
Parenthood and the Florida


Public Interest Research Group.
Leaders from the various
organizations will lobbylegisla-
tors and attempt to influence
public opinion if there appears
to be widespread support for
measures that could either
alter or weaken the ability of
citizens to petition for changes
in Florida law.
One such proposal that
could significantly change the
state's future appears headed
for the Nov. .7 ballot. If
embraced by voters, it would
take the job of redrawing
political districts away from
legislators and turn it over to a
15-member commission.
The proposed reappor-
tionment commission would
include 12 members named
by the majority and minority
parties in Tallahassee and
three by the Florida Supreme
Court. None could be current
officeholders, lobbyists or
.political party officers.
All members would be pre-
cluded from running for
political office for a period of
four years after they help
draw new districts, which
must be compact and inclu-
sive of communities. Each
new district map would have
to be approved by at least 10
committee members.
The initiative has been pur-
sued by a group known as The


Committee for Fair Elections
that includes Common Cause
of Florida Executive Director
Ben Wilcox, former U.S. Sen.
Bob Graham, former Florida
Comptroller Bob Milligan, and
former Florida Education
Commissioner Betty Castor.
A long list of organizations
has either served on the steer-
ing committee or participat-
ed as coalition partners.
Among them are the League
of Women Voters of Florida,
Florida Association of Retired
Americans, Sierra Club and
the American Association of
University Women.
The organizations oppose
the current redistricting sys-
tem, which allows, state law-
makers to redraw political
boundaries every 10 years
based on the latest census
data. The result has been
political districts created by
computers that are noncom-
petitive.
Another proposal that could
still make the ballot if'eiotigh",
petition signatures are gath-
ered has been pursued for sev-
eral years by a group known as
Florida Hometown Dem-
ocracy-that believes the state's
comprehensive planning pro-
cess is ineffective.
It would amend the Con-
stitution to provide for local
voter referendums on pro-


posed comprehensive plan
changes that allow such things
as new subdivisions, business
parks, roads and shopping
malls. Elected county and city
officials currently make such
decisions.
Last March, the Florida


Supreme Court ruled the sub-
jectwas legally suitable to be on
a statewide ballot, but narrowly
rejected the initiative's first sen-
tence. It forced the organization
to start over with a petition
process that requires more than
600,000 valid signatures.

and Thomas Jefferson.
"We need to keep things in
perspective," Ley reminded
the board..,
As the discussion shifted to
other topics, Thaxton later
apologized for his characteri-
zations.
"I know we're never going
to be Fort Lauderdale," he
started. "How they tried to
solve their traffic problems is
what I was talldng about."
He added that he is more
concerned that Sarasota
County -is trying to solve its
growt.f-titfgem'ent fisues
in the same way as peoplein
Broward County did and
failed.
"They way they didit, by.
building more roads to the
(west) didn't work," he con-
tinued. "It concerns me that
the path we are taking has,
time and time again failed."
The commissioners ac-


cepted the apology whether
one was needed or not.
"We are at a difficult
point," Commissioner Paul
Mercier said.
The com-
missioners
agreed they
can learn the
lessons from
what they did.
By address-
ing the issues
now, rather
Mercier than waiting,
i the -bo d4
agreed itv will
make a difference in the long
run.
"I am not worried," Mills
said.
Ley concurred, saying the
county is well prepared to
handle its growth manage-
ment issues.

succeed," he wrote shortly
after becoming national com-
mander.
The record
Bock wants to set the
record straight now that he
has personally seen the war in
Iraq. In addition to visiting,
with service members, Bock
spoke with Gen. George W.
Casey and members of the
Kirkuk city council.
"I thought the news media
was not giving us the whole
story. Now, I know they're
not," he said.
Casey reported 15 of 18
districts in Iraq have less than
five reportable incidents each
day.
That's a far cry from the
news media image of a coun-
try (in the throes of a civil
war), he said.


"The country of Iraq is
doing well. They are proud of
their freedom. They just need
us to stay the course and give
them time to complete the
transformation," Bock said.
"They're not ignorant peo-
ple. They're intelligent. Many
have been educated in the
United States. They told us to
take this message back to
Americans: One, thanks for
your cooperation in securing
our freedom; two, don't leave
too soon because the job isn't

"They wanted to make
sure ... our young men know
they are very much appreciat-
ed," Bock said.
"Gen. Casey said 2006 is
the Year of the Police Force in
Iraq. Remember, they've
never had the cop on the
street corner. If you upset
Saddam's army pow, you
were dead.
"But this police.force is
made up of volunteers. That's
its weak point. People can
easily infiltrate it and under-
mine the public's confidence.
... They are developing trust
and that takes time."


'Nut'
Bock also took shots at the
United Nations for its treat-
ment of the U.S. war on ter-
rorism, and at the American
Civil Liberties Union.
"The U.N. is all (a bunch)
of nuts.... America is not the
bad guy. Terrorists are the bad
guys," he said.
"There is an attack on
American values by the
ACLU," Bock went on. "Now
the ACLU is telling us that Boy
Scouts are evil... And they've
attacked the Ten Com-
mandments," Bock said,
referring to the group's threat
to file a lawsuit against the


Fairfax, Minn., school board if
it continued with its Veterans
Day program that begins with
prayer.
"Because of our religious
leanings, the school district
didn't bring in our program
last year," Bock said.
The program was held, but
off school grounds.
The American Legion is
supporting House Bill 2679 by
Rep. John Hostettler from
Indiana, which .Bock said
would eliminate attorney's
fee awards in such cases.
"The ACLU has staff who
are already paid. They put
those fees in their back pock-


et and use them to attack
another American value at
another time," he said.
Bock also reviewed the
American Legion's effort tq
thwart cutbacks in veteran
benefits by Congress.
"Why not make Veterans
Affairs a Medicare provider?
We've been harping on this
for years," he said. "We want a
fully funded VA."

Regional water summit in the works for county


County officials want to convene a meeting
to coordinate both water and wastewater

BYBOB RfDDY said of recent estimates
STAFF WRITER North Port's bonulationia


Recent demands on water
are not going away and the
sources of water are being
gobbled ip quickly.,
*With that in mind, Sarasota
County staff is planning to
arrange for a water/waste-
water summit among the
staffs 'of each of the utilities
in the area,
including the .

the Peace

Water Supply Authority.
County Administrator Jim
Ley said Tuesday there is a
need for a consistent plah
and direction among all of
the' people with an' interest
in the water supply.
"We need to work to co-
ordinate -water arid waste-
water needs from many
players," he said. ,"We will
ask the basic questions of
what each expects for the
future.",
-iNo specific' date has been
setlfor' the'summit; just .the
idea of it was floated Tues-
day and it- is now the goal of
the ~toLnty utility staff to
arrange a joint meeting.
: The idea was born a little
more than a week ago when
Sarasota County commis-
sioners. held a workshop
updating them on the work
of the county utilities efforts

During that meeting Com-
missioner Shannon Staub
suggested the.EWD be ap-

Richard Rollo, the district's
administrator. ,. ,said EWD
would be interested in ex-
panding if it. was a viable
option that' didn't affect its
existing customers.
Ley said now is the time
"to call all of the players

Summit on traffic safety a great idea


W e're encouraged to see that state offi-
cials have grown more concerned
about the death toll on Florida roads
and highways: 3,515 men, women and chil-
dren killed in Florida in 2005 and 3,257 peo-
ple in 2004.
Those numbers are unacceptable.
Announcing that a Florida Safety Summit
will be held on March 30 in Orlando, the
information being sent out by participating
state agencies also includes the fact that
227,192 people were injured in 2004, and
then adds: "We can and MUST do better, but
we need your help to develop priority high-
way safety initiatives."
As the Sun papers have regularly pointed
out, many of these deaths and injuries are
preventable.
While some officials contend that the dri-
vers are largely at fault, there is ample evi-
dence from engineering studies that poor


road design is a significant cause of crashes.
Engineering countermeasures will reduce
the number of crashes and prevent injuries
and deaths, explains Chad Dornsife, founder
of the best Highway Practices Institute, based
in California.
The Michigan Department of Transporta-
tion and other groups, working with AAA, have
reduced crashes in that state by 25 percent and
injuries by 40 percent over a 10-year period.
In our view, the most important thing
Michigan does that is not being routinely
done in Florida, is to send traffic engineers
out to crash sites, police reports in hand. The
engineers then looks for ways to improve the
road or intersection so it is more driver-
friendly.
Since the state agencies involved in the
safety summit are asking for help, we offer
some suggestions.
In Washington state, charitable organiza-


tions often staff interstate rest stops, offering
drivers fresh coffee and cookies. The groups
then receive tips or donations from drivers
and passengers to support the organization.
This helps keep drivers alert.
Just stopping, stretching and walking
around for a few minutes also helps. Those
who are tired can nap and have fresh coffee
when they awake. This is a solution where
everyone wins.
We also contend the roads that lead
motorists onto Florida interstates need to be
lengthened, so a driver can get up to highway
speed before pulling into traffic. This is espe-
cially true for 18-wheelers, pickups pulling
trailers and motor homes.
The lanes used to exit Florida interstates.
also need to be longer, so drivers don't have
to slow down with 80 mph traffic roaring up,
then braking, behind them.
Some states are reducing intersection


crashes by installing "roundabouts," which
are common in parts of Europe.
.Roundabouts are being promoted.by the
Arizona Department of Transportation as
safety solutions, replacing traffic signals.
Arizona's DOT suggests roundabouts reduce
fatal crashes by 90 percent and injury crash-
es by 75 percent.
In a roundabout, instead of a.stop ,light,
traffic flows around a circular island, ,that
yield controls at all entry points. Vehicles
already within the roundabout have priority.
Roundabouts are said to be especially
valuable in an area where there are more
than the usual number of older drivers, be-
cause it gives them time to make decisions.
' The safety summit is a good start. We also
believe the Florida Department of Transpor-
tation needs to create a think tank of creative
people who devote their time to finding ways
to reduce crashes.


Led by the nose ll&W, it
NM I kI, r __ ,I ,|BM -


No matter how cynical you
consider yourself to be, once
in a while something will
comeome along unexpectedly
that will still manage to catch
you off guard and make you
laugh out loud.
On the day of this writing I
had exactly such a moment,
when my eye caught. the
headline on page one of our
local New York Times sub-
sidiary (not this paper), which
stated boldly above the fold,
"Bush, Cheney try to dispel
notion Iraq is in civil war."
Really, now? Would that be
the same "Iraqi civil war"
that's been predicted on and
off for the last three years?
The sources vary AP,
Reuters, CNN but this
"news" always reads like last
month's fax, dusted off and
sent out again, just to keep
the unrest simmering. A more
accurate title would be "Iraqi
civil war predicted for the last
three years by mainstream
media still a no-show," but
that's much less catchy, de-
spite being more truthful.
Many of the self-anointed
elites of the mainstream
media have been against the
liberation of Iraq from the
start, magnifying every mis-
take and setback, while at the
same time burying the many
positive developments there.
Relying on such sources
alone, a person is certain to
develop a dark outlook on the
subject, simply because all
they have heard for the last
three years is almost entirely
negative reporting.
Don't think you're being
led by the nose? Look at how
Rep. Katherine Harris has
'been treated lately' by the
same paper. The last two
weeks have seen almost a
story a day, half on the front
page, all of them negative.
It's always "Harris staffer in-
volved in scandal," "Another
Harris staffer quits," "Harris
campaign is broke," ad nause-
am. Boy, do they love her.
I was surprised that some
spin wasn't concocted to roast
Ms. Harris for wearing that
pink blouse at the Arcadia
rodeo recently. That job could
have at least been farmed out
to the fashion editor.
And how about that two-
week media circus when Vice
President Cheney accidental-
ly shot a friend and fellow
hunter? You get the picture.


Ultimately, people who
rely solely on such biased
sources for their "news" and
consider themselves "inform-
ed" are in grave error. Rather,
they have been disinformed.
That's right, not "mis-in-
formed" "dis-informed."
What's the difference? In-
tent. What you are seeing is
blatant editorializing under
the guise of "reporting."
In the news business, it
goes by different names. First
it was "advocacy journalism,"
until people started asking
what was being advocated, I
suppose, because -later-.it.
changed to "explanatory jour-
nalism."
Now the code word has
become "informative journal-
ism." But it all amounts to the
same thing.
Hey, we all have opinions.
But in journalism, they be-
long in the op-ed section, not
every page of section A.
Of course, this slant doesn't
affect all subjects covered by
the mainstream press. For
example, pieces on lawn fur-
niture, art shows and the like
are usually exempt from
"informative journalism." But
when politics are involved,
watch out.
I have to agree with what
Bernard Goldberg postulated
in his excellent book, "Bias."
This is not a "conspiracy" in
the sense that everyone in-
volved gathers around a table
each morning to plan the
day's spin. No, it's more of a
general zeitgeist, where
everyone more or less feels
the same way about the state
of things and takes the same
approach to advocating it. So
what's to discuss?
Doubtless, some of this is
the result of bad information
that's passed on from source
to writer. But a "journalist"
who regurgitates something
simply because it's what he
wants to hear, without re-
search, is no "journalist" at all.
This is what sank longtime
CBS anchor Dan Rather.
Over the last decade, gen-
eral interest in print and TV
mass media has waned, while
other, newer sources of news
have filled the gap, such as
talk radio and the Internet. So
there are alternatives if you
want "fair and balanced," al-
though. it's something you
have to create for yourself.
But that's proper anyway,
because it all boils down to
the unchanging fact that it's
never been a good idea to
simply take information, any
information, at face value.
You have to think for yourself.
And that's not being cyni-
cal; that's just being smart.

Living in paradise takes hard work


Editor:
The article regarding the homeless couple is compassion-
ate, but to have two full pages of pictures and articles was more
information than was deserved, unless you are trying to fill all
the picnic pavilions at Venice Beach with other homeless peo-
ple.
If this couple were really paying attention to the local
papers, they would know unemployment is at nearly 0 percent
in this area and that employers are in great need of workers.
Jobs are available to anyone really wanting one.
They may only get minimum wage, but it is a start. With this
type of job they won't be able to live on the beach, but then
again people pay more than a million dollars for that privilege.
When we came to Venice 18 months ago, we thought it was
paradise, and we still do. If we had realized we could move
here, save paying our monthly mortgage and annual property
tax ($8,000) and still have a million-dollar beach view daily, I
think we would have definitely considered that.
Take a good look around you. Every day you are surrounded
by people busy making a living. These people also go to the
beach, but only after they are done with their work.
The cost of living is higher here, so maybe those with no
means of income and who are unable to get work should look
for a place that is not so expensive. No, wait, they could just
camp out under the palms, listen to the surf, watch the birds,
drink (beer) and enjoy life ... day to day.

Voting machines: Shine some light on our ballots


BY KINDRA MUNTZ
GUEST COLUMNIST

Last week we celebrated
Florida's policy of open and
transparent government in
"Sunshine Week." Unfortun-
ately, openness and trans-
parency don't seem to apply
to the voting systems by
which we elect our govern-
ment leaders.
Although Florida may have
governmentt in .the sun-
shine," in more and more
Florida counties we have vot-
ing in the dark.
How did we get into this
mess, and what should we do
about it?
In 2001, 15 counties in
Florida, including Sarasota
County, : comprising more
than 54 percent of the vote,
were persuaded to buy
"paperless" touch-screen Di-
rect Record Electronic voting
machines, against the recom-
mendation of the governor's
task force that recommended
optical scanners and paper
ballots.
The persuasion was ac-
complished partly by Sandra
Mortham, former Florida sec-
retary of state turned lobbyist,
' who made a commission on
every touch-screen machine



| LET'EM HAVE IT
S Help yourselves. I read
v 'ith interest the article, "Not
quite a Venetian paradise.",
Kudos to David's mom, as
hard as it must have been to
say no, I can only imagine
what he has put her through.,
SInterestingly enough, in
today's paper there were five
pages of help-wanted ads. I
do believe, at age 68, if I were
in desperate need of a job, I
could have one by tonight. It
may be pushing burgers, but
at least I would have some-
thing to vat. Not once did I see
, you hiave a belief in God or
Sny type of faith, which is the
backbone of our life. God
helps those who help them-
selves and standing at the
entrance of the beach is hard-
ly'helping yourself. I would
suggest you get on your bikes
and start peddling toward a
help-wanted sign and stop
leeching from other people
who have worked for what
they have. Nobody owes you a
living but you.:


sold.
Since 2002, failures and
errors with "paperless" DRE
touchscreen voting machines
have been documented in
Florida and around the coun-
try. (See "Machine Failures"
on safevote.org.)
By 2004, 95 percent of
computer experts from the
Association for Computing
Machinery (4,600 members
. nationwide) agreed that the
only wayr to verify elections
was with: manual audits of
voter verified paper ballots
against machine results. The
federal 'Government Ac-
countability Office report of
September 2005 said touch-
screen DREs were unreliable
and could alter election out-
comes.. ,';-
As of 2006, 27 states re-
quire voter-verified paper
ballots. Thirteen -have pro-
posed legislationto this ef-
fect. ; t
More states are switching
to optical scanners because
of the lack of verifiability,
mounting problems and ex-
orbitant costs of maintaining
touch-screen machines. New
Mexico made the decision
March 2. Maryland is consid-
ering it. Fifty-two counties in
Florida use, optical scanners


and paper ballots, but Sara-
sota County never had a
chance.
Despite compelling evi-
dence that a permanent
paper record is needed to
audit machine results, our
Legislature has done every-
thing in its power to eliminate
paper ballots and prohibit
recounts, even when bizarre
results occur in the tallies of
electronic voting machines,
like the minus-16,022 count
on one machine in Volusia
County in November 2000.
Last year our state pres-
sured the 52 counties using
optical scanners to buy
paperless touch-screen ma-
chines for disabled voters,
and refused to certify a ballot-
marking device (the Auto-
MARK) for the disabled that
has been certified by 30 other
states and the federal govern-
ment. AutoMARK could save
thousands of dollars com-
pared to the costs of touch-
screens.
Why not let the counties
serve their voters and save
costs? Why the statewide
pressure for unverifiable elec-
tions?
In 2004, Secretary of State
Glenda Hood tried to push a
bill through the Legislature


banning recounts .entirely,
since none is possible with
touch-screen machines. Cit-
izens were alerted to this de-
vious attempt to bend the
law, and complained to their
state legislators. The bill
failed.
Step by step, our Legisla-
ture is trying to eliminate the
possibility of verified elec-
tions in Florida.
In the future, bizarre re-
sults like the minus-16,022
count may never be caught.
The entire process of count-
ing votes has been turned
over to private voting-ma-
chine vendors who make lots
of money selling and main-
taining touch-screen ma-
chines whose errors cannot
be detected on Election Day.
We are pawns of the voting
machine vendors.
As the supervisor of elec-
tions of Leon County pointed
out, these companies are not
accountable to the United
States of America. Do you like
entrusting our democracy to
private for-profit corpora-
tions? Do you like not know-
ing whether your vote was
counted as cast? It was Stalin
who said, "It matters not who
votes, but who counts the
votes."


In March 2005, long after
the 2004 elections were de-
cided, detailed analysis of
event logs finally obtained for
the DRE touch-screen ma-
chines in Miami-Dade Coun-
ty through a Freedom of In-
formation Act request show-
ed touch-screen machine tal-
lies from 35 percent of the
precincts in November 2004
recorded either more votes
than voters, or significantly
fewer votes than voters sign-
ed in at the precincts.
Error messages on ma-
chines read "internal mal-
function/unit closed to save
data/vote data corrupted."
That is just one of the 42
pages of problems with ES&S
equipment reported around
the country.
It is time for the citizens of
Florida to speak out. It is time
to demand verified elections.
No, we cannot place our
trust in machine vendors.
Our Founding Fathers trusted
in God, but for humans they
instituted checks and bal-
ances.
There are no checks and
balances in unverified elec-
tions with no possibility of
manual audits.
We must demand two
things from our county offi-


cials and from our state legis-
lators: voter-verified paper
ballots and mandatory, ran-
dom, independent manual
audits of election results.
Optical scanners are certi-
fied in Florida; used by 52 out
of 67 counties; could save us
about $800,000 per year; and
give us the paper ballot we
need to audit machine re-
sults.
It is time to take action: 1)
Sign the petition available on
safevote.org to put a referen-
dum on the ballot in No-
vember 2006; 2) Call and e-
mail your state legislators.
Bills have been filed in this
session of the Legislature to
require voter-verified paper
ballots as the ballot of record
in audits and recounts.
Get our state senators and
representatives to amend
current laws or pass a bill in
support of our rights as voters
to have verified and audited
elections.
It is now or never. We are
fighting for our democracy.

Your own mess. I cannot
believe that you waste my
money for your newspaper
for using one and three-
fourth pages to tell about Rita
and Dave, the homeless cou-
ple. This also included six pic-
tures of them, one of which
showed absolutely nothing
but 'a piece of paper and a
part of a hand, and it took up
a third of a page. I sure don't
feel sorry for them. If I were
his mother, I probably would


have evicted them from the
mobile home also. Sounds
like he made many poor
choices in his life. What's the
problem?
'Are they just lazy and don't
want to work, or do prospec-
tive employers detect an odor,
since, he said they haven't had
a shower in six or seven
weeks, and probably don't
have clean clothes either?
They've been arrested more
than once. So, are we sup-


posed to feel sorry for these
lazy people or keep our hands
on our wallets and our doors
locked?
As a mother, I could not be
proud of either of you. You
said it's the actions of others
who put you where you are.
No, Dave, you put yourselves
in this mess. Until you accept
that fact, things will never
change. So expect another
nine years or more.
The real problem. After
reading the article on home-


less folk, David and Rita, I can
see one of their problems,
which probably has been in
their life when they were still
in Ohio, is alcohol, though
David doesn't think that
there's anything wrong with
drinking in the public. I think
they need to step back and
take another look at their real
problems. '
More good news. I cannot
believe you spent two pages
in your newspaper and all
those pictures about people


living on the beach who do
little for other people. Didn't
you know there was a bicycle
ride today that raised $50,000
to fight diabetes? And what
are our high school people
doing? There's got to be many
good projects they're involv-
ed in. Let's have more news
like that of a positive nature.
See it. If you like World War
II movies, be sure and see
"Mrs. Henderson Presents."
Don't let the R rating keep you
away. It's a fun ride.

Elena and Joe Rafaniello examine one of the final jobs on their embroidery machines in the
small production area of their old Nokomis premises.

BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


"It's what you expect in a
big city, but you can get it here
locally from us!" said Joe
Rafaniello, co-owner with
wife, Elena; of Gemini Ap-
parel & Accessories. They're
two successful, hard-working
entrepreneurs who exemplify
the American dream as they
grow their business in Venice.
Attending Venice High,
Rafaniello. preferred graphic
arts and offset printing. When
the school installed one of its
first Macintosh computers he
was delighted.
Graduating in 1991, he
found it difficult getting a job
in printing, so he became a
shop helper until a printer
departed to the armed forces
fibd he stepped 3ih'Aland
learned to screeni*t fid. ~aIdC
In November 1997 Elena
presented him with twin girls
and by the following February
out of necessity he started his
own business, choosing the
name Gemini, the astrologi-
cal sign for twins.
Conditions were very diffi-'
cult, operating all the equip-
ment in the single-car garage
and laundry room of their
1,200-square-foot home.
Inventory was stored in the
. living room, and Elena, with
the twins, handled phone


calls from their office, a small
desk in the bedroom.
The first three years were
tough. With Joe having quit
his screen-printing job and
little income from his own
business, through necessity
he was forced back into the.
pizza business, working 60
hours or more a week,
Tuesday through Saturday in.
a pizzeria, then Sunday and
Monday at home printing
custom T-shirts.
"It was really tough, but we
managed and got through it,"
said Rafaniello.
Needing more space in
February 2000, they took a
2,400-square-foot industrial
unit in Nokomis at 1060
Endeavor Court, Suite C. Joe
still worked two days a week
at the pizzeria,, ensuring.they
had extra income. ,,-.-.. a,
The move was a'big juiip
in rent, electric and phones,
so it was 12 months before
they hired their first employ-
ee. She began their embroi-
dery production on a single-
head machine, one at a time.
They have since moved up to
two multi-head machines
doing eight at a time, 15 col-
ors per head.
They brought the six-color
manual printer from their
garage and then acquired an
eight-color auto-screening
machine producing upward.


of 400-items an hour at top
speed, compared to 400 a day
on the manual.
This month the Rafaniellos
are moving again, to a new
5,040-square-foot unit with a
2,000-square-foot loft storage
facility at 105 Triple Diamond
Blvd., Unit 103, North Venice.
More production space
will enable them to install a
second press with capability
of up to 12 colors. Major and
higher-end lines Nike Golf,
Adidas, Antigua-- will be dis-
played in a 550-squate-foot
showroom.
All design work continues
to be done in-house for
immediate production and
customer service. Rafaneillo
will need two to three more
full-time employees as busi-
ness increases with regular

shirts 'forr Lhare.rl :Nokdfnis
School. Gemini's biggest
order was 3,500 T-shirts for a
heart walkathon.
"We are the one-stop store
of promotional printed and
embroidered items like coffee
mugs, can coolers, pens,
magnets, hats,.towels, T-shirts
and everything with a logo on
it for an event or function,"
Rafaneillo said, confirming
there would be no interrup-
tion in service as they work
out of both locations until the
move is completed.

Sweet treats coming to Galleria Plaza


A new gourmet concept is
coming to the revitalized Gal-
leriaPlazain the fall when culi-
nary expert Tom Harvey plans
to open his newest creation, a
gelato and espresso cafe.
He has 21 years in the cater-
ing industry, including two
years as an executive chef at
Washington's U.S. House of
Representatives, where he pre-
pared food for presidents Bill
Clinton and George W Bush.
Arriving in Sarasota a few
years ago, he opened his pop-
ular Galileo Restorante at
1538 Stickney Point Road at
the south bridge to Siesta Key.
He confirmed it would be
pretty much be what Star-
bucks does, plus offering the
homemade frozen stone con-
cept where customers per-
sonalize their gelato by mix-
ing their own choices.
In addition, he plans to
have wireless Internet for cus-
tomers to bring their laptops
while eating and drinking.
"It is an 800-square-foot
unit in the northeast corner,


which will have an adjoining
walkway to more parking in
the back, and now the movie
theater is open I want to get in
as soon as I can," said Harvey.
Patrick Jaehne of The
Waterford Companies is
managing the project.
Hoping to open
Honoluana tonight
If everything goes as plan-
ned, Valerie and David
Thompson are hoping to open
their new Honoluana Island
Grill &Tld Bar tonight (Friday).
It's taken several weeks to
transform the former 44th
Aero Squadron premises at
222 Airport Road, Venice
Municipal Airport. Replacing
their popular Dona Bay rest-
aurant on an airport was a
challenge, as they introduced
their island theme setting
with the Grill restaurant on
the second floor and the Car-
ribeanian-style Tiki Bar
downstairs.
"Everyone is pretty well lin-
ed up, and if we get the paper-
work completed, we will get it
open this weekend," said
Thompson. Call 483-3553.
Golf continuing through
2007 season
Last week the attorney
mailed out the final purchase
documents to the three high-
est-offer applicants inform-
ing them the Venice East Golf
Club is looking to get
$17,200,000 when eventually
the Venice East course is sold,
according to Frank Mack,


president of the club.
They have 30 days to re-
spond, and at that stage, there
may be more negotiating be-
fore any final decision is
reached with the attorney.
Income from the season
has enabled the club to clear
its debts to members who
financed the addition to the
clubhouse.
"The course has never
looked better; it is open and
running, and there is a con-
tract stipulation allowing us
to continue enjoying play for
at least 12 months, including
the 2006-2007 season," con-
firmed Mack.
Singing at the Inn
Last Friday Harmony
House opened its restaurant at
the Holiday Inn, U.S. 41 By-.
pass, Venice.
Partners Dave Green and
Ron Smith, who ran the
Homestyle Harmony restau-
rant in Sarasota eight years ago,
have brought their family-style
menu with lots of singing and,
good times toVenice.
They opened with enter-
tainers Michelle Pryne and
Kim Kohler, and have plans
for more local entertainers to
appear weekly. Green and his
wife, Lynne, are known in
Venice as the Davlyn Duo,
having entertained audiences
at various locations.
Harmony House servers
sing to guests as they dine
nightly, and intend also to
present their sing-alongs at
lunch, and even breakfast.

Amber Alert worked for North Port boy


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER,


Jessica Lunsford ... Sarah
Lunde ... Carlie Brucia. For-
tunately, it was a different
ending for North Port's 8-
year-old William Hunter. .
On Monday, the Florida
Department of Law Enforce-
ment.issdied an Amber Alert) a
first 'for North Port, when
William was not returned on
time after a visitatibn'with his
biological father, Walter
Charles Hunter.
And though it's not the
kind of list a city wants to be
on, North Port has nowjoined
larger cities such as Jack-
sonville, Miami, Tampa and
St. Petersburg.
Hunter, 47, lives out of his
van at 6726 Joe Jeff St., where
Venice Land Clearing oper-
ates its chipper mill business.
The arrest report lists Hunter
as being employed by Venice
Land Clearing.
"Once police learned
Hunter allegedly planned to
harm William and himself,
they spoke with the FDLE and
an Amber Alert was issued.
After the alert was broadcast,
Hunter returned William to
the North Port Police Depart-
ment, unharmed, and turned
himself in," Capt. Robert
Estrada said.
Glitches
Because this was the first
time North Port had to issue
an Amber Alert, there were
some minor problems, ac-

THE FLORIDA AMBER PLAN
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, in conjunction with
the Department of Community Affairs and the Florida Association
of Broadcasters Inc., has established the Florida Amber Plan:
Florida's emergency missing-child alert. The purpose of the plan is
to broadcast critical information about a missing or abducted child
believed to be in danger, in a timely manner, to the general public
via radio and television.
To activate the alert, the following five criteria must be met
,t.~1hTch hlicbmustlbaiun ler4Sli. ..,. ..... ,1... ,. i,-
'I2'.~~e'mUst be a clear lididation of'in abducti6h. '
3. The law enforcement agency's investigation must conclude that
the child's life is in danger.
4. There must be a detailed description of the child, abductor or
vehicle to broadcast to the public.
5. The activation must be recommended by the local law enforce-
ment agency of jurisdiction.
The system is not to be used for runaways.
The Amber Alert can only be activated by law enforcement. The
local law enforcement agency calls the FDLE Missing Children
Information Clearinghouse at (888) 356-4774. The FDLE works in
conjunction with the local agency with primary jurisdiction to
determine if information is to be broadcast on a regional or
statewide basis.
The FDLE, working in conjunction with the local law enforcement
agency with primary jurisdiction, prepares the information for
public distribution and ensures the information is broadcast
through the Emergency Alert System, Dynamic Message Signs,
lottery machines, http://www.missingchildrenalert.com and other
resources.

Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office, Venice Police Depart-
ment and Sarasota Police
Department joined North
Port in an all-night search
after the BOLO was issued.
Detective Randy Ruth,
who was investigating the
case, said he did not have
enough information to meet
the criteria for an Amber Alert


until 5 a.m.
"FDLE has specific criteria,
mainly that the child must be
threatened," Ruth said.
The system works
To ensure the proper pro-
cedures are followed, Vespia
and Ruth have mirrored
FDLE's policy as a guide in
drafting North PQrt's.own. ...
"The changes made were
to make sure everyone has a
clear understanding and a
method to do it," Vespia said.
"The policy now defines
the requirements and
responsibilities of communi-
cations, criminal investiga-
tors, road patrol and watch
commanders," Vespia said'
"I felt the need to make
sure everyone knows their
responsibilities," Vespia said.
"Once the Amber Alert was
issued, I was impressed how
fast the media got the infor-
mation and photos out," Ves-
pia said.
After the Amber Alert was
issued, Estrada, who is in
charge of Operations and is
the public information offi-
cer, said he was not quite pre-
pared for it.
"I was besieged by more
than 30 calls from the media;
most of them were on my
voicemail," Estrada said,
adding he was surprised by
the volume of calls.
He received calls from New
York City, Atlanta, Miami, and
local media outlets.

Pete Dombroski has seen a
lot of ballplayers come and go
in his 15 years of coaching at
Venice High.
When it comes to short-
stops, two stand out in his
mind.
"Adam Pavkovich was the
best I've seen and Brittany
Hipple is the second best,"
said Dombroski, longtime
junior varsity baseball coach
and current softball assistant.
Pavkovich played on the
VHS state runnerup team in
1999, starred at the University
of Alabama and in now play-
ing AAA baseball in the
Angels chain.
Hipple is the junior short-
stop on this year's VHS soft-
ball team. Her efforts have
helped the Lady Indians to a
14-2 record and a No. 7 rank-
ing in Class 5A.
She is a standout in every
aspect of the game. In the
field, Hipple shows uncom-
mon consistency. Not only
does she handle all of the rou-
tine plays, but her incredible
range allows her to steal sure
hits game-in, game-out. Her
arm strength allows her to
gun from anywhere on the
field.
She stands 6-feet tall, but
she has the grace and
smoothness of someone
shorter. She said that she has-


n't always been "The Natural."
"I've been told that taller
people .have coordination
problems," Hippie said. "I
haven't always been like this.
I've worked hard on my coor-
dination."
At the plate, Hipple bats in
the three hole. She hits the
ball with a u thori ty.
The stats back that up.
Hipple is second on the team
in batting average with a siz-
zling .611 (33-for-54). She
leads the team with 17 RBIs.
Hipple began playing soft-
ball at the age of 8. She has
honed her talents with Miss
Venice Fastpitch and. in club
ball.
"My first team was the
Vipers 10-and-under," Hip-
ple said. "My dad played
baseball. My grandmother's
uncle played professional
baseball with the St. Louis
Cardinals."
Hipple pitched when she
was younger, but she suf-
fered an injury to her neck
when she was 14 years old
and decided not to push her
luck. She would stick to
shortstop.
Because of her size and
athletic gifts, coaches of other
sports courted Hipple. She
played volleyball a couple of
years, but quit to concentrate
on softball.
"I didn't feel as comfort-
able," Hipple said. "Softball is
just something I've always felt

Venice High junior shortstop Brittany Hippie has been a shining star both in the field and at
the plate this season.


comfortable doing. I love it."
It shows on the field.
Hipple never appears ner-
vous and hence, almost never
commits an error.
"I don't think about any-
thing," she said, "I'm in a
zone. I try not to look into the
stands, because then I'll feel
like I have to impress people."
Hipple has been playing
club ball with the 18-and-


under Tampa Wildcats for
three years. Traveling to tour-
naments in other states is a
norm for Hipple.
"We do it after the high
school season and then again
in the fall," she said. "It's been
a great experience."'
Hipple has been drawing
attention from major college
softball powers like LSU and
Florida State, but she still has


this season and then another
year left for the Green and
White.
"It's a lot more intense with
the new coaches," Hipple said
of the new regime of head
coach Larry Sandburg and
assistant Dombroski. "It rubs
off on us. We have two great
pitchers and they have confi-
dence in us playing behind
them."


Lady In.dans head to Brandon for4ourne

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

With rain lingering into the
evening Thursday, the Sarasota-at-
Venice high, school softball games
were canceled.
"We didn't want to take the chance
of getting anybody hurt," varsity
head coach Larry Sandburg said. "I
don't think we'll make it up. Maybe we
would if it was a district game."
The varsity will take a record of 14-
2 into the Jon Sinclair Memorial
Spring Fling Invitational in Brandon
Friday and Saturday.
There are 16 teams in the two-day
tournament. Venice opens play at 2
p.m. Friday against tourney host


Brandon High. Win or lose, the Lady
Indians will play either Tampa
Robinson or Armwood.
There are a few ranked teams in the
tournament, most notably Tampa
Plant, which is third in 5A. Venice is
seventh in 5A.
Venice will play at least two games
on Saturday.
Venice will play the tournament
without the services of pitcher
Heather Laird (8-1), who is on a sci-
ence class trip to Costa Rica.
*
The junior varsity game scheduled
Thursday against Sarasota was also
canceled.
The Venice JVs did play a double-
header at Riverview Tuesday night.


The Lady Indians won both to
improve their record to a spotless 19-
0.
The first game was tougher than
anticipated with Venice holding on for
a 9-8 victory. Casey Garner, Shannon
Mulloy and Maddie Jones had two
hits apiece for VHS.
The second game was more like it
with Venice winning 18-1.
Winning pitcher Stephanie
Sullivan allowed but three hits. She
fanned five.
At the plate, Sullivan had two dou-
bles and three RBIs. Amanda Harvey
had three hits, Cory Jones, Becca
Juntunen and Garner had two hits
apiece.

hits. Dinka and Paolillo each pitched
two innings.


I live on a pond and I'm
sure many of you also do. My
bass have been hitting like
crazy the past three evenings.
I haven't caught any lunkers
(7 pounds or larger), but the
numbers far outweigh the
quality. I fish during the last 1-
1 1/2 hours of light.
I've only landed about six
or seven each night, but I've
had at least 20-25 pickups
or lost fish each evening.
Tuesday, I had pickups on
my worm four straight casts.
I think it's the post-spawn
period. That's when they fat-
ten up after losing all of that
weight. My friend has had
similar experiences in his
pond.
Huge jacks hit the beach
Sunday. Chesapeake Andy
and friend caught several all
over 10 pounds.
I went to Sharky's Pier
Monday and saw several
nice pompano caught. They
were caught on shrimp. But
I suspect now that they and
other local stores received
their shipment of fleas, sand'
fleas will be the bait of
choice.
Pompano were being
caught at the jetties until the
murky water came.
They're still catching a few
sheepies at the jetties, but

most are on the small side.
I was told that the Spanish
mackeral and kingfish are still
hitting about a mile out or so.
The problem is that many
boats haven't been going out
with all of this wind.
I almost forgot. An 8-foot
bull shark was caught the
other night at Sharky's Pier.
I need some fishing reports
from bait shops and individu-
als. Please e-mail me. Fellow
Sheepsheadites, we'll talk
again next week.

Charlotte Sun History of the Automobile draws capacity crowd


Page 2 D/E/N/C/V


By RUSS MOORE
STAFF WRITER
The face that looked back at
me in the mirror Saturday
afternoon was the color of a
lobster. The reason was easy
to guess. I had spent the after-
noon at the History of the
Automobile Car Snow in our
very own Charlotte Sun park-
ing lot. We had expected a
small neighborhood show
with about 50 cars, but our
parking lot overflowed into
the park next door and show
cars lined our entrance street.
Folks had come from. all over
the Suncoast to visit with fel-
low gearheads about their
restored cars and what new
muscle they should expect to
see on the street.
The show featured cars
starting with the oldest car in
the meet, Bill Eckhoff's 1910
International Harvester, to Bill
Alvarez's 2005 Ford GT 40.
Whether it was cars to come
or favorites from the past, car
show goers were treated to the
best Charlotte County had to
offer.
Bill and Karen Eggerman
pulled into the parking lot
early in their azure colored
1954 Corvette. The Punta
Gorda couple's vintage Vette
shown like a pearl in the
bright sunlight of Charlotte
Harbor as they set about wip-
ing off the dust that only their
trained eyes could see.
"We have owned the car for
21 years," Bill told us with an
easy smile. He continued to
primp his car for the show as
we talked. Watching Bill it was
quite clear he was treating the
car not only as a valued vin-
tage sports car, but as a mem-
ber of the family.
."We acquired the car from
Karen's uncle R : be-t Giimle\.
He bought the car iahen it was
four years old," Bill told us.
QuiclJy doing the math, -I
u n.dle' stood Bill's sentiment
abohtl the Corvette the car
hdi been a fanili member for

Th j.i't;4 C '":ttl i'pe i the
- second year of actual produc-
tion for the automobile. It was
to be a banner year for the
car's production. Production
moved to a newly renovated
facility in St. Louis, Mo., where
10,000 Corvettes were sup-
posed to be built. Plans
changed. Slow sales caused
General Motor executives to
make some midyear changes
to their new sports car.
The 1954 midyear changes


to the Corvette included some
exterior quality improve-
ments to the new fiberglass
' body. Three new colors were
added to the traditional Polo
White.
The new colors were Sports-
men Red, Black, and my per-
sonal favorite, Pennant Blue.
"There were 3,460 Corvettes
built in 1954, and only 300
were Pennant Blue," Bill said.
"The beige or saddle leather
interior was also offered on
the midyear 1954 Vette," Bill
told us. "We knew the special
interior made this car even
more rare."
The Pennant Blue 1954
Corvette that Bill was showing
at the car show on Saturday
had the benefit of a racer
camshaft, which pumped the
horsepower up to 155 from
the 235ci six-cylinder engine.
Like all Corvettes produced
during 1954, Bill's ride
retained the Powerglide auto-
matic transmission. For you
trivia buffs out there, while
the Powerglide transmission
was listed as a $178 option, all
1954 Corvettes were shipped
with the Powerglide automat-

The specifications for the
1954 Corvette found it on the
samel02 inch wheelbase as
the original car. The newVette
came with a rear track of 57
inches, a decidedly sporty
proportion for a car of its
time. The height of the Vette at
the windshield was 51.5 inch-
es. The curb weight of the car
was 2,886 pounds. and origi-
nal tire size was 6.70x15".
The production of the 1954
Corvette began in December
1953. The new production
facility produced only 3,640.
units. In December of 1954,
almost a third of the cars
remained unsold. Like so
many legendary automobiles,

folks at GM are that they did
not succumb to the pressures
of the time that would have
terminated production of the
Corvette forever. I can only
wonder what would happen
today.

The show featured cars starting with the oldest car in the meet, Bill Eckhoff's 1910 International Harvester, to Bill Alvarez's 2005 Ford GT 40.
Whether it was cars to come or favorites from the past, car show goers were treated to the best Charlotte County had to offer.


Karen Eggerman and their
1954 Pennant Blue Corvette,
Bill Alvarez of Punta Gorda
stood next to his Ford GT 40
on Saturday answering ques-
tions from gearheads that
were happy to get a hands-on
look at his ear's 550 horsepow-
er engine. The car in its short
history has become a legend
to car enthusiasts. The Ford
GT 40 brings back memories
of the original 1966 Ford GT's
surprise 1-2-3 victory in the 24
hours of LeMans.

The Ford Motor Company
announced that it will end
production of the $150,000
Ford GT high-performance
sports car this year after two
model years. The car was
intended for a short run,
according to Ford. The end of
production this year is timed
to coincide with the 40th
anniversary of the famous
first, second and third place
finish of the original Ford GT
in the 1966 LeMans race.

Staying active the Balance





Movement Way at SFC


BY JOEL FOSTER
STAFF WRITER

Lori Whittle is taking the fear fac-
tor out of aging.
"The older I get, the more I realize
that physical activity is the key to
being able to live longer in your own
home."
Living her philosophy, Lori
Whittle, a certified Balance and
Mobility Instructor through Cal
State Fullerton and recipient of a
master's degree in public health,
may well outlive us all. The trim,
energetic and enthusiastic leader of
the Balance Movement portion of
the Falls Prevention Initiative is the
piston driving the program offered
each Friday at three venues in the
Venice and Englewood area.
Whittle credits her 21 years in
Sarasota Tazzercizing, which taught
her the proper way to exercise with-
out causing injury, knowledge
acquired through 25 years of being a
massage therapist, and 30 years as a
vegetarian for her own superb con-
ditioning.
But her work with the older-age
exercisers stems from her course
work in gerontology at Florida Gulf
Coast University. Within the class
syllabus was a requirement to
become involved with an elder cen-
ter, investigate to find what might be
needed and develop a program to
fill the need.
She chose the Senior Friendship
Center on Scenic Drive in Venice,
and, with a three-year grant written
and, awarded, the Balance Move-
ment Program began.
"This is the second of the three
years," she said recently before a
Friday 9:30 a.m. session. "The pro-
gram has grown through word of
mouth. We now see over 200 people
a week throughout. Sarasota County,
100 in theVenice/Englewood area. A
lot more women thaanmen, usually,
except right in Sarasota for' some
reason."


The gender discrepancy she
likens to the age group most likely to
profit from the program, the 70-85

IF YOU FALL
1. Calm yourself
2. Check yourself for body injury
3. Assess your surroundings
4. Slowly roll onto your elbows and
knees
5. Crawl to a place where you can pull
yourself up


pre-baby boomer generation.
"Unlike the boomers, those ages
were unfamiliar to group exercise
programs" and the work out centers
that now dot the urban landscape.
The ultimate goal, Whittle said,
via data to be collected by ongoing
surveys, is to reduce the rate of hip
fractures in Sarasota County. The
cost of treating same in the county
in 2001 was a staggering $30 million.
"What you do with your body has
as much to do with your health as
that adage, 'you are what you eat.'
Activity is the key," she said. "The
National Council of Aging states,
generally, that a person should per-
form some kind of aerobic exercise
30 minutes a day in sections of at
least 10 minute durations. And,
three times a week, a person should
be involved in strength, flexibility
and balance, which is the focus of
the class."
As Whittle works to physically
strengthen aging bodies, she stress-
es the increase in confidence.
"It's a cruel cycle," she said of the
fear of falling and its effect on mobil-
ity, which is at the hub of one of the
program keys, teaching participants
how to walk properly. "It's about
establishing better stability. Our
manner of walking changes as we
age from the arm-swinging strides
of our youth to a shuffle in older age,
because people begin to fear falling


and don't understand that it is the
fear itself that keeps them from
doing exactly those type of things
that would reduce the fear."
The two factors being direct
opposites and discouragingly coun-
terproductive, she strives to break
that cycle through the Balance and
Movement Class, the totality of
which is done either sitting in a chair
or standing.
Whittle studied Cal State
Fullerton's nationally recognized
program for reducing falls in an
elderly population, Fallproof!, and
incorporated material into a com-
munity-based group exercise pilot
program which she will conduct as
soon as Fullerton provides the cur-
riculum.
The class will be given by invita-
tion and intentionally small at first
(six participants) to enable her to
train peer mentors.
With training accomplished, the
program will then be expanded.

BALANCE TIPS
1. Unlock your knees
2. Place your feet farther apart
3. Take longer steps
4. Wear flat-soled shoes
5. Stay active

But for now, Whittle has a very full
plate as she stands center circle,
interacting superbly with her willing
class.
For the next 45 minutes she will
slowly but steadily challenge her
devotees to gently push their limits,
encourage them in the harder
moves and caution against perform-
ing the standing portions without
the support of the back of a chair, all
with the smiling good humor of a
person enjoying the profession she
does so exceedingly well.
The Senior Friendship Center
Balance and Movement Classes are
each Friday as follows:


A certified Balance and Mobility Instructor, Lori Whittle leads the Balance
Movement class at the Kathleen K. Caitlin Center of the Senior Friendship
Center. The slow and steady challenge she offers seniors stresses increasing
strength and confidence.

One thing our residents in
South Venice appreciate is the
abilik to find health services
when needed: and if the ser-

The. mission of the Com-

physical, mental and social

Osprey, Venice and Nokomis
through education, referral
and wellness programs. And
soon there will be two more
Information Centers to help
you locate available services
in our community.
In addition to the current
CHIP Information Center at
Goodwill Industries, 1752

There is no need to stay
home and worry about your

Eating fondue? Be vigilant L


about cooking raw foods l,::::": L..L


Q: Recently, several of us ate
at a fondue restaurant and we
all got sick that night. By mid-
night, my wife had diarrhea and
was vomiting nonstop, and
then her lips started to pale. I
took her to the hospital and
they told me she had food poi-
soning. In the future, what do
you suggest to head off the
symptoms? T.W., New York
City
A: When you're dealing
with food-borne illness,
there's no over-the-counter
remedy to "head off" the
symptoms. If you are certain
the food poisoning occurred
at that restaurant, you should
contact the manager and
relate what happened. Other
patrons may also have gotten
sick. If the owners are decent
and reputable, they will pay


your medical bills.
The Centers for Disease
Control recommends that
you report incidents like this
to your local health depart-
ment. By investigating out-
breaks, public health officials
learn about problems in food
production that lead to ill-
ness.
Bear in mind, fondue
restaurants serve raw meats,
seafood, poultry and vegeta-
bles, and it is up to you to
cook them. The juices of all
these foods mix together.
Since you are your own chef,
I recommend that you over-
cook the food and certainly
keep your utensils clean. Raw
or undercooked foods that
are contaminated can cause
infections because they con-
tain dangerous bacteria, par-
asites or fungi. Food-borne
diseases can be harmful,
especially if one becomes
infected with E. coli,
Salmonella, Listeria,
Hepatitis A or.
Campylobacter.
Symptoms from food-poi-
soning may range from a
mild stomachache and
cramps to serious diarrhea,
vomiting, liver failure, dehy-
dration and even death. You
did the right thing by taking
your wife to ER. Over-the-
counter drugs would not

have helped in this situation.
John Robbins, author of
"The Food Revolution"
(foodrevolution.org), has
written an interesting book
on the subject of foods and
food-borne illness. Because it
is impossible to eradicate all.
the harmful micro-organisms
in our meals, it's important to
cook them properly and keep
your immune system strong.
Also, spray down your coun-
ters, clean your utensils and
replace sponges often.
Q: I've been reading about
various illnesses (even cancer)
that are possible from cooking
on nonstick pots and pans that
use a Teflon coating. Have you
heard of this? S.N., Sanibel,
Fla.
A: Yes. If you have such
pots, don't heat them above
medium temperature and
replace them frequently.
There has been much debate
over the years about Teflon,
but we know that one of the
chemicals used to make
Teflon, PFOA, has been
linked to cancer and birth
defects in animals, and is in
the blood of 95 percent of

Walking for Multiple Sclerosis


BY BILL THOMPSON
GUEST WRITER


My name is Bill Thomp-
son, and my wife and I have
lived in Venice since 2003. I
was diagnosed with Primary
Progressive Multiple Sclerosis
in 2002, which forced my
retirement. My wife was diag-
nosed with M.S. in 1978 and
our son in 1995.
M.S., unlike some other
diseases, does not put you in
a life-threatening category.
Each person who is diag-


nosed has his or her own
symptoms. Some people are
mobile, some restricted to a
wheelchair, some cannot
walk without a cane or a
walker, and some are bedrid-
den. I find it very difficult try-
ing to tell people about my
disease and the physical limi-
tations it has put on my life.
I arrived in Venice in
November 2003. The first year
I went downhill. I had tried
some medication, but it did
nothing for me. I was fortu-
nate to be considered for a


clinical trial. Since I started, I
walk and I do normal activi-
ties that I could not do before.
My highlight was being
able to walk with other peo-
ple with M.S. and their fami-
lies in the MS Walk on March
18. We call ourselves the
Venice Merry Members. This
fundraiser raised $2,295.
No matter what you have
medically, don't give up.
Think positively!

The '' R
sciatic nerve
(the largest nerve
in the body) branches from the base
of the spinal cord (where it is
attached) to form the motor and
sensory nerves of the legs and feet.
Sciatica develops when a bulging spinal disc
impinges the nerve. The result is excruciating
pain that radiates to the buttocks and down the
path of the nerve at the back of the leg. Until
fairly recently, conventional wisdom held that
bed rest could benefit patients with sciatica.
However, just as it has been found that prolonged
bed rest does not help alleviate lower back pain,
research shows that bed rest does not help sciatica
either. In fact, gentle movement has been found to
be a better choice.
Sciatica affects about five percent of adults in the
United States and is one of the most common causes
SJ of chronic disability.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER

the piriformis muscle irritates the sciatic nerve,

Baby boomers: Learn about osteoporosis


STAFF REPORT

Until recently, no one gave
much thought to the topic of
bone health. Occasionally
you would hear of someone
who broke a hip and neve'
was the same again. As mor
and more research is being
conducted, doctors are pas-
ing the word on to patients
that it is vital to take preveita-


dve measures to ensure bone
health, to preserve the quality
of life and increase life
expectancy.
Recognizing the disease
Osteoporosis affects men
and women and is not just a
"grandmother's disease." It is
a condition characterized by
a decrease in bone mass and
density, causing bones to


become fragile. Those suffer-
ing from osteoporosis are
much more likely than others
to break bones following even
minor bumps and falls. The
disease can limit mobility and
lead to a downward' spiral in
physical health and the quali-
ty of life. The ability to walk,
stand up, or take care of one-
self may be lost following an
osteoporitic fracture. Ac-


cording to the National In-
stitute of Health report, one
in five patients dies within a
year after sustaining an os-
teoporitic hip fracture. There-
fore, detecting osteoporosis
and charting a course of treat-
ment is crucial.
Preventive measures
There are many steps you
can take to ensure bone


health. Here are a few recom-
mendations from the Sur-
geon General and Wallach
Surgical, the distributors of
Sunlight Omnisense, an ultra-
sound-based osteoporosis
testing device:
Eat a diet high in calcium
and Vitamin D. Calcium can
be found in dairy products
like milk, cheeses and yogurt,
as well as in green leafy veg-


tables and soybeans. Vit-
amin D is produced in the
skin by exposure to the sun,
but can also be found in forti-
fied milk and other foods.
Supplements may also be
beneficial to boost calcium
and Vitamin D intake.
*Inactive individuals are at
risk for osteoporosis because

Venice Little Theatre's di-
redtors Murray Chase and
Allan Kollar will take to the
main stage March 28 to popu-
late Greater Tuna, the third
smallest town in Texas.
"This. is Radio Station
OKKK in Tuna, Texas, serving
the greater Tuna area at two


hundred and seventy-five
watts, signing on!" And so
begins the morning on the
radio in the third smallest
town in Texas., where the
Lions' Club is too liberal and
Patsy Cline never dies.
"Greater Tuna" runs Tues-
days through Saturdays at 8
p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.
through April 15. Tickets are
$10-$20 per person and are
on sale now in the theater's
box office, by phone at 488-
1115 or online at venices-
tage.com.
. This story of a day in the
life of these eclectic residents
of Tuna male, female and
canine is told by two actors
who play all 20 parts. VLT is
fortunate that Chase, the the-
ater's managing artistic direc-
tor and Kollar, its associate
director are those two actors.
Under the direction of
Nancy Hoover, Chase and
Kollar maniacally change cos-
tumes and personas through-
out the play. "Greater Tuna"
has been hugely popular
around the entire country
since its triumphant New
York run off-Broadway. A hil-
arious satire on life in rural
America, "Greater Tuna" is
one of .the most frequently
performed plays in the
United States. I want to see
this one more than once.
These two actors are that
good.
The VLT is located at 140
W. Tampa Ave. on the island
in Venice. The box office is


open Monday-Saturday, 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. and opens one
hour before all performances.
Tickets alsp may be charged

Florida Studio Theatre in
Sarasota, winds up its 2005-
2006 Winter Cabaret show
with a world premiere revue,
"The Flip Side." Beginning
March 28, "The Flip Side" is
an evening dedicated to the
comic insights of some of
today's off-the-wall (and not
so off-the-wall) songwriters.
The show runs through June
10 in FST's Goldstein Cabaret.
Featuring songs from a
wild array of artists, including
Shel Silverstein, Randy New-
man, Ray-Stevens and John
Forster, "The Flip Side" is a
seriously funny revue that
relies heavily on, musical
wordplay and lyrical lunacy.
The songs featured in the
show are sardonic, ironic and,
at times, histrionic. Witty
tunes full of moronic charac-
ters paired with sophisticated
lyrics reveal the present state
of America: the good, the bad
and the funny.
Stephen Hope, who ap-
peared most recently in FST's
production of "My Way" will
return to join the cast of"The
Flip Side." Hope's other FST
credits include "Ruthless! The
Musical," "The Exonerated,"
"The Rise and Fall of Western
Civilization According to Tom
Lehrer," and others. Joining


Hope is fellow FST returnee
Richie IMcCall. McCall ap-
peared in last season's Main-
stage opener, "It Ain't Nothin'
But the Blues," and has lent
his talents to other FST pro-
ductions including "The All
Night Strut," "My One and
Only Gershwin" and "A
Vaudeville Cabaret." Round-
ing put the cast will, be FST
newcomer Craig Laurie, who
is coming to FST straight from
a run in New' Ydrk's "'For-
bidden Broadway: "Special
Victims Unit."
Dennis Courtney, wio
directed this season's ""Ethel
Waters: His Eye. is on the
Sparrow" and "Piano Men,"
will direct "TheFlip Side." He
will be aided by.FST staffers
Michael Sebastian (music
director) and Marcella Beck-
with (scenic and costume
design). Guest artist: Jeff Dil-
Ion will design the lights.
"The Flip Side" begins
March 28, and runs'ithrough

aret. Tickets are $26-$29 and
may be purchased at the box

Rea as a top cop assigned to
track down the terrorist V,
who has blown up London's
Old Bailey and is threatening"
to do likewise with Parlia
ment. V's mask is a likeness
of Guy Fawkes, the fabled
17th century radical who
plotted to explode Parlia-
ment and who became the
namesake of a British holiday
celebrated with fireworks. V
sees himself as Fawkes' heir,
with a similar mission: to
topple a tyrannical regime
and restore liberty. If inno-
cent civilians die in the
process, so be it.
In its more meditative
(or, one could argue, preten-
tious) moments, "V For
Vendetta" poses the ques-
tion: Is terrorism ever justi-
fied? Is blowing up buildings
in the name of freedom 'a
good thing? What would
George Bush make of all
this? Or George Washington?

Larry the Cable Guy:.
Health Inspector
Irreverent as ever, Larry the Cable Guy plays
a big city health Inspector who's happy with
his usual beat of greasy spoon diners and
low-rent ethnic restaurants. But his easygoing
life is turned upside-down when he's saddled
with a straight-arrow rookie partner (Iris Bahr)

investigating an outbreak of mysterious food
poisonings at the city's swankiest restaurants.
Infuriating restaurateurs with his bad man-
ners, Larry still manages to charm a sweet,
shy waitress (Megyn Price) into a budding
romance. But when his unorthodox methods
cost him his job, Larry has to go undercover
to bring the conspirators to justice and 'Git-R-
Done!' 1 hr. 29 min.

RABBI BARBARA AIELLO:
RELIGION (01.0 i4iS


In his compelling book,
"Triangle: The Fire that
Changed America," David
Von Dreble reminds his read-
ers in vivid detail of the events
of March 25, 1911. By day's
end, 146 young girls burned
from the fire or crushed and
mutilated by death-defying
leaps from nine stories up, lay
dead on the sidewalk. Until
the tragedy of 9/11 happened,
the Triangle fire was the worst
workplace disaster in the his-
tory of NewYork City.
In a review of the book,
Vince Piro writes: "Back in
1911, the Triangle Waist Com-
pany employed hundreds
who sewed blouses (or shirt-
waists) in its 10-story factory
located in Manhattan. Most


of these employees were
immigrant women, of which
40 percent were Italian and
about 60 percent were East-
ern European Jews."
Just one week before the
fire, on March 19, 1911, Eur-
ope marked its very first
International Women's Day,
when more than 1 million
women and men in four
countries rallied for a wom-
an's right to vote and right to
work. Ironically, only six days
later, the deaths of teenage
immigrant girls half a world
away led to sweeping changes
in labor legislation and to a
worldwide observance of
International Women's Day.
But if ever there was a first
Women's Day, it had to be
more than two thousand
years ago on the 14th day in
the Hebrew month of Adar:
the day that marks the feast of
Purim. The hero of the story is
not a man, but a woman, and
her name is Esther. Rebbetzin
Tzipporah Heller writes about
Esther's ordinary and humble
beginnings: "Her father had
died while her mother was
pregnant with Esther; her
mother died at her birth.
Thus, she came into this
world with the gaping wound.


of belonging to no one."
As Esther grew into girl-
hood, the Jews of Persia de-
scended into despair. King
Achashverosh assumed pow-
er and, aided by his wicked
henchman, Haman, system-
atically began to repress the
Jews. Rebbetzin Heller re-
minds us that the root for the
Hebrew word "ester" is
"saiter," which means "con-
cealment." Our little Esther at
first concealed her Jewish
identity, but later broke
through a self- and society-
imposed barrier to reveal her
background. Esther spoke the
truth, and with that act, she
pierced through the armor of
public hatred and personal
denial which defined her no
more.
A Google search of the
topic tells us that Inter-
national Women's Day is a
way to recount the stories of
ordinary women who made
history. One site takes us back
to ancient Greece where
Lysistrata organized what was
probably the world's first
strike. She encouraged wom-
en to withhold sex from men
who made war. From the

AIELLO


women of the French Revo-
lution who stormed Versailles
calling for "liberty, equality
and fraternity," to the bravery
of Michela Marciano whose
life began in the ashes of a
tiny Italian village at the foot
of Mount Vesuvius and ended
in the ashes of the Triangle
fire, International Women's
Day in the month of March
remembers them all.


Here in Italy, we celebrate
our International Woman's
Day, "La Festa della Donna"
on March 8, when it is cus-
tomary to give sprigs of bright
yellow mimosa -to every
woman you know. Men give
mimosa to women, but may-
be more important, women
present the flower to one to
another. Why mimosa? Ro-
mans say that the mimosa


signifies sensitivity, a trait that
propels many women to
stand strong for their beliefs.
Others say that the mimosa
represents "coAcealed love,"
the love that Esther had for
her people that led her to
make her awesome declara-
tion.
And then there is the
memory of the few young
girls who survived the Tri-


angle fire. On that fateful day,
some recall seeing wild mi-
mosa blooming in the vacant
lot adjacent to the factory. For
nearly 150 beautiful, vibrant
and determined Italian' and
Jewish women, the ordinary
mimosa was the last flower
they ever saw.
It makes me think that if
Esther were here today, she,
would wear mimosa in her


hair.


Rabbi Barbara Aiello is the
first woman and first Reform
rabbi in Italy. She is a
founder of the Institute for
the Study of the Jews of
Calabria and Sicily (jewish-
roots. it) and rabbinic advisor
for Bradenton's Chavurah
Ner Tamid. Write her at rab-

CRA "


done.
It 'also means moving
aheadd with implementing
.mandatory architectural
\.`design standards and what
activities will happen at the
.county-owned waterfront
properties.
"It is a critical time," Diez
--said.
Shaping the future
With a growing interest in
the downtown business dis-
trict along West Dearborn
Street by developers, any
action taken in the next few
months \vill shape the future
of the entire CRA.
Commissioner Paul Mer-
cier told the advisory board
that they can't be aggressive
'-enough.
Staub said she wold like to
see changes to the plan,
which has not been amended
+.since it was adopted in 1999
when the CRA advisory board
was first created. '
There were several refer-
Sences to the yet-to-be-com-
pleted Retail Market Analysis
being done by a consultant.
c The final plan is due in the
next few weeks and will serve
a tool to help the community
go after businesses, said CRA
coordinator Chris Davis.
Staub suggested grouping
projects on the CRA priority
4 list and using future CRA
money to get a bond to pay
for them now.
The CRA gains money
each year within its 5,400-
acre boundary from extra tax
money collected above a base
rate.
"We need to package infra-
: structure," Staub said of items
.such as street lighting,
,stormmwater management,
.parking, power line reloca-
:*tions and possibly sidewalks.
S"We cannot continue to pay
'-as you go."
She was supported in the
idea but was warned that pro-


jecting the CRA to generate
more than $15 million in the
next five years may be opti-
mistic.
Commissioner Nora
Patterson said she liked,-the
idea, as long as it does not
limit the CRA's options for
projects beyond what is
under the bond.
Explosion of growth
Advisory Board member
John Fellin said his board has
been grappling with how
much latitude they have with-
out seeking approval of the
commission, which serves as
the enacting board for the
CRA.
Throughout the meeting,
the commissioners sought
the advisory board's opinion
on the bigger concepts.
Diez, Fellin and John
Radkins each chimed in with
their support of some of the
specific ideas, such as build-
ing a pier of some sort at the
end of West Dearborn or at
the county-owned Cherokee
Street property.
Radkins said the timing of
everything the advisory board
is doing has a greater impor-
tance than ever before.
"We are embarking on a
real explosion of growth," he
said.
With that in mind, the
county commissioners sent
the advisory board on its way
with a request to bring back
formal plans or project
changes as soon as possible.
Davis said there is a lot of
work to be done.
"The commissioners were
very clear they want action,"
she said.
Staub said she hopes more
is done in the coming months
to jumpstart the activities of
the CRA, and Tuesday's meet-
ing should be the catalyst.

Picture a quieter, gentler time in Florida


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Venice as we know it was
born in 1925, when Dr. Fred
Albee sold his John Nolen
plan and some 1,400 acres to
the Brotherhood of Locomo-
tive Engineers, the country's
largest labor union in those
days.
The city has been reborn at
least four times since then,
each time advancing Nolen's
plan a little bit more.
One of those eras was the
1970s, when most of the
beach-front condominiums
were built along the Espla-
nade and on Tarpon Center
Drive. Among the first, in
1972, was the Quarterdeck
Island Resort Condominiums
on Tarpon Center Drive,
across from the present site of
the Venice Yacht Club. I saw
the model suites there when
the building was new but
have not been back since for
the simple reason that units
at the Quarterdeck are rarely
if ever offered for sale on the
open market. They usually
stay in the family and are qui-
etly transferred from parent
to child, or a unit might be
sold to a friend. .
Now, after 10 years of writ-
ing about Venice area real
estate, thanks to Coldwell
Banker Residential Real Es-
tate Inc. Realtor Karla Furry, I
am finally able to write about
a listing at the Quarterdeck.
Located on the second


floor of the south building,
the one-bedroom apartment
is being offered for sale
turnkey furnished. With win-
dows to the north and south,
residents can take advantage
of gulf breezes throughout
the year. From the front win-
dows there is a view of the


Office and courtyard are
handy to all residents.

Quaterdeck's interior tropi-
cally landscaped courtyard.
The 660-square-foot unit
has an 11-foot by 18-foot liv-
ing room, Pullman kitchen,
separate dining room and a
master bedroom that mea-
sures nearly 12 feet by 14 feet.
The kitchen has laminate
cabinets and counters. A wall
mirror in the dining room
expands the space. There are
newer tile floors in the
kitchen and dining room and
carpeting in the living room.
The Quarterdeck's office,
mailroom and laundry is just


downstairs and the swim-
ming pool and Gulf of Mexico
are mere steps away.
Since the beach renourish-
ment, there is a wide swath of
sand between the pool and
water's edge. Surrounded by a
brick paver deck, the heated
pool is one of the larger con-
dominium pools is the area.
Seagrass separates the fenced
pool area from the beach.
In addition to the location
and the amenities, the Quart-
erdeck has one other attri-
bute, which is highly prized
by its owners. Each of the
units can be rented out week-
ly or monthly, unlike most
other condos where rentals
are generally limited to one
quarter per year and one
renter per quarter. An onsite
manager handles the rentals
as well as day-to-day man-
agement of the complex.
Individual owners earn the
income from their units
should they choose to rent
them out. Most do.
Listed for $470,970, the
residence can be seen by
appointment. There is an
$800 master fee and monthly
fees for cable TV lawn and
pool care, exterior mainte-
nance, pest control, trash
removal and water and sewer.
For an appointment to see
the condo, call Realtors Karla
or Tom Furry at 408-9320 or
visit furrysellsflorida.com. For
more information on the
Quarerdeck, visit qdeckre-
sort.com.

An old ship's wheel is an appropriate decoration at the Quarterdeck's tropical patio area.


The Quarterdeck's pool is one any resort would be proud of.
