Fighting for



the underdogs


VHA resident Carter Canada is out to protect
his neighbors' rights, even if some question his motives.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


There's no food in the refrigera-
tor.
My girlfriend just left, and I'm
depressed.
They're evicting me over a $50
bill.
These are just a few of the plaints
that follow the random knocks on
Carter Canada's apartment door.
The four-year resident of Grove
Terrace Apartments was elected the
Residents Council president last
year, and has spent much of his
time protecting the rights of those
living at South County's only public
housing complex.
And much of it has happened
in the living room of his cramped,
one-bedroom apartment.
"This has officially become the
Residents Council office," said
Canada, motioning around his

apartment.
Pushing for a hurricane evacua-
tion plan that includes boarding
up windows, stopping residents
from being overcharged on their
electric bills and advocating on
behalf of evicted residents are just a
few of the items on Canada's plate.
The Resident Couhcil's biggest
fight has been opposing VHA's
plans to demolish and redevelop.
Canada has challenged VHA for
failing to follow resident participa-
tion requirements and believes the
project is nothing more than a
plan to displace Venice's poor and
minority populations while mak-
ing money for a private developer.
Pretty big accusations, especially
coming from someone who was
expected to be a "yes man" to for-
mer Executive Director Peter Lopez.
Canada believes that Lopez pushed

A fourth-grade teacher gets
a three-day suspension for
violating security on a state
exam, but student test
scores won't be invalidated.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County School
Board meted out its punishment
Tuesday on a teacher who violated
FCAT Florida Writes Exam security:
three days suspension without pay.
The suspension for the Venice
Elementary teacher ran Wednesday
through Friday, prior to Spring
Break.


"This is the most severe punish-
ment we can impose under our
collective bargaining agreement,
short of termination," said Super-
intendent Gary Norris in a March
6 letter to the commissioner of
education informing the depart-
ment of the violation.
"We feel this punishment is ap-
propriate given both the severity of
the offense and the track record of
the teacher involved," Norris said.
According to investigation docu-
ments, Gretchen Betts breached
FCAT test security by opening the
test before it was administered and
giving hints about its content to
students. FCAT Writing exams took
place Feb. 7-8 in grades four, eight
and 10 throughout the state.
Betts apparently didn't admit to


the accusations, and after consult-
ing with SC/TA officials declined to
respond to written questions from
district officials about the breach.
That didn't stop Principal Ther-
esa Baus from recommending the
suspension.
"I am absolutely convinced that
she did pre-read the narrative
prompt before administration of
the test and then, gave suggestions
to students for responding to this
prompt," said Baus in a report to
school board officials.
Prior to administering the FCAT
exam, all teachers sign a security
agreement in which they promise
not to read the official student
writing prompts or reveal any in-

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
KENNETH MILLER


A move to ban the under-
21 crowd from bars in Sara-
sota County developed a
hiccup.
As the county commis-
sioners were discussing set-
ting a possible ordinance
change for a
public hear- .
ing, it be-
came clear
they weren't ,i||
sure what
they intend- ,A'
ed to ban.
With that
in mind, the
board direct- Mills
ed staff to
return with clearer options.
Commission Chairman
David Mills has led the push
to ban underage people from
entering bars and nightclubs.
He cited several recent
incidents in the city of Sara-
sota where underage night-
club patrons were involved in
several incidents; one even
died following a stabbing.
"This is an important is-

sue that needs to be dealt
with," Mills said.
Other commissioners
agreed there was a problem
in the city where a sim-
ilar ordinance is being con-
sidered but they weren't
sure such a problem needs
to be addressed in the un-
incorporated portions of the
county.
'"As far as I am concerned,
it's not really that big of an
issue," Commissioner Paul
Mercier said. "There may be


hot spots,
but I don't
think it rises
to the level
where we
need to take
action."
Mills said
he can't un-
derstand any
reason not to

place that serves alcohol.
"To me it's a no-brainer,"
Mills said.

before the board about the
issue, said problems exist
on many levels and action
needs to be taken now ra-
ther than as a reaction to a
growing problem, which he
sees happening the city of
Sarasota.
James Schulz, the county's
criminal justice policy co-
ordinator for the Health
and Human Services Depart-
ment, said restrictions of this
nature are common through-
out Florida.
"There are technical differ-
ences, whether to ban people
from businesses that serve
food and what exceptions
there might be," Schulz said.
"There are so many vari-
ables."
The original goal of Tues-
day's discussion was to find
common ground among
board members so the staff
could advertise public hear-
ings on the issue.
Mercier said there were
enough laws on the books to
prevent underage people
from entering bars, and it is
really a matter of enforce-
ment.

Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton said he thought the
board was going to crack
down on late-night DJ party
environments, not come
down on businesses that
have no problem.
"There are a lot of places
that could
get caught
in this where
young peo-
ple go for
entertain-
m e n t "

said. "I don't
see a prob-
Thaxton lem in the
broader
sense."
County only
Schulz provided the board
with a list of more than 20
bars and lounges that the
county could affect if the
commissioners wanted
to limit its scope.
Board members argued
that most of the establish-
ments on the list were not
problem businesses.
"I can't even imagine kids


going into most of these
places," Commissioner Shan-
non Staub said.
She said several of the
places on the preliminary
list are in Englewood and
South Venice and have never
had a problem.
Schulz said he needed
guidance from the board to
trim the options.
Commissioners asked
Schulz to come back with
a detailed list of locations
and types of establishments
that could fall under the
umbrella of the ordinance,
including nightclubs.
By the end
of the discus-
sion, most of
the commis-
sioners were
interested in

ing night- Mercier

There are disturbing pre-
dictions now being made
about the upcoming hurri-
cane season.
Both Max Mayfield, direc-
tor of the National Hurricane
Center, and Dr. William Gray, a
respected storm predictor,
think 2006 will be much like
2004-2005 record-breaking
years.
As if that weren't bad
enough, a private forecast
group last week made the
same projection for 2006, but
suggested the beginning of
hurricane season be changed
to May 15, instead of June 1.
If this keeps up, Tropical
Bob foresees a year-round
season in the not-too-distant
future.

Who turned the lights out?


Venice has spent more
than $1 million for
street lights that only
work some of the time.

BY JJ. ANDREWS
A' i 'TlANT E lIni-:
Venice City Council mem-
ber Rick Tacy has broken the
silence on what many people
have been saying about the
city's decorative street lights
downtown.
Council members were
discussing the idea of in-
stalling additional street
lights along Harbor Drive.
Public Works Director Larry
Heath explained the project,
and how using the downtown
decorative lights instead of
ones leased from Florida
Power & Light would greatly
increase the cost.
"At least the FPL lights
work," Tacy said.
Public works staff is trying
to find out why lights contin-
ue to burn out. Every street
light on the south side of East
Venice Avenue between the
bridge and U.S. 41 Bypass


was unlit Thursday night, as
were two poles along Venice
Avenue downtown and four
on Miami Avenue.
Venice launched the
downtown decorative lights
program in June 2000. The
fancy poles with two lights
now line Venice Avenue from
Harbor Drive to U.S. 41 By-
pass, Miami and Tampa ave-
nues, and portions of Noko-
mis and Nassau streets.
Not including the ones
along U.S. 41 Business, which
the city reimbursed the state
for, Venice has spent more
than $1 million since launch-
ing the project nearly six
years ago.
City Manager Marty Black
admitted that no one is cer-
tain why the lights are not
working, but said they are still
under warranty.
Venice may have to hire an
independent electrical engi-
neer because the manufac-
turer contends the problem is
not with the lights.
"We believe as a staff it's a
manufacturing issue with the
transformers, Black said.
"But we're not qualified to say
that. That's our best guess....

Every decorative street light on the south side of East Venice Avenue between the bridge and
U.S. 41 Bypass was out Thursday night. City officials are attempting to find out why the high-
profile, expensive lights are not working.


We're still pursuing the con-
tractor to make sure they
work to our expectations."

CORRECTION
The Venetian Waterway
Park still has four major sec-
tions to be completed. On the
island side of the Intracoastal
Waterway, the connection
behind Waterfront on Venice
Island condominium towers
next to Hatchett Creek Bridge

Moving day draws



near for Legionnaires


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


American Legion No-Vel
Post 159 still is not in its new
building on East Venice
Avenue at Auburn Road.
But, there appears to be
general agreement between
Legionnaires and developer
Mike Miller that the middle of
April looks like a good time
for a "post-warming."
"We're just waiting on the
lawyers to dot all the "i"s and
cross all the "t"s for the clos-
ing," Post Commander Greg
Putman said.
"That could be as soon as
Wednesday."
Putman said he is hoping
to be in by April 15.
"The 16th is our 60th an-
niversary," Putman said, "and
I'd like to have our grand
opening for that."


Putman said it will take
about two weeks to move out
of the old building and into
the new headquarters.
Miller said the new legion
building was issued a certifi-
cate of occupancy Jan. 30.
Miller wanted the current
legion property at 145 E.
Venice Ave. for his waterfront
development. He built the
Legionnaires a new building
and they gave him the old
building and property in
return.
Several potential move-in
dates since March 2005 have
come and gone.
However, while the build-
ing was completed several
months ago, the Legionnaires
complained that there were
problems that needed to be
fixed before they would move
in.
The city also refused to


issue a certificate of occupan-
cy due to some drainage
problems that have since
been fixed.
The Legionnaires went
back and forth with Miller on
the punch list, but Miller said
recently there are only two or
three items left.
"There's some asphalt
damage in the parking lot, a
couple other things in the
kitchen that need attention
and some weather stripping
- should be cleared up in a
few days," Miller said. "I'm
anxious for them to move in
and I want them to be happy."
Ground was broken for the

City of Venice workers install the 1,000th water meter that can be read by remote control.
The radio-read meters allow a city utilities employee to take a reading with a radio reader
while passing by the meter in a vehicle. One employee could read the city's 10,000 water
meters in a day, once all of these are in place, simply by driving down each of the city's
streets. It would take three full-time workers a month to read every city meter the old-
fashioned way.

Sound too good to be true?

This new hybrid mortgage is for the homeowner who wants
the lowest monthly payment possible, period! At only
$321.00 per month, per $100,000 you can see how your
monthly savings could be tremendous if you combined
mortgages and paid off credit cards and bills. This is not an
introductory teaser or gimmick, but is a 30-year mortgage
and the 1% is for the first 5 years. You will have a fixed
payment schedule that will not change.
Here is the real Truth in Lending.
Because the 1% payment is so small, you are only paying
about 1/2 the monthly interest due. This makes your
payment about half of what an interest only payment
would be. The lender adds the unpaid interest back to your
principle balance, to be paid later. The beauty here is your
new future gift of equity appreciation pays this interest
later, instead of your hard earned money today. In real
dollars your balance could increase 3 to 5% per year. This is
only $3000 to $5000 per year per $100,000 (this is the same
amount you save per year). This is pocket change compared
to the record equity growth we have been blessed with here
in Southwest Florida. Our homes are appreciating $25,000
to $50,000 or more per year. The real bottom line here is
you get a real low payment and you still net tremendous
cash equity even though your balance increases slightly.
The realty is that 1% is not your note rate, but is merely a
numeric percentage used to calculate the actual amount of
your extremely low monthly payment. Your actual note rate
is adjustable, based on the Libor index plus a margin for
the lender. At a note rate of 6%, your APR would be about
6.5%. If your note rate would increase, it has no affect on
your monthly payment. It only affects the amount you defer
to your balance to be paid later by your new gift of equity.
Again this program is for the homeowner who wants the
absolute smallest monthly payment they can pay.

North Port land value overtaking Venice


The county tax rolls hit $46.9 billion in 2005 -
more than double the land value only six years
ago.


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

The value of land in Sara-
sota County has more than
doubled in the last six years,
totaling $46.9 billion in 2005,
up from $21.9 billion in 1999,
according to figures from the
Sarasota County Tax Collect-
or.
Skyrocketing land values
are nothing new. Which mun-
icipalities 'are most "valu-
able," however, is.
North Port will likely pass
Venice in total land value
when the 2006 county tax
rolls come out later this year,
and could be nipping at the
heels of Longboat Key for sec-
ond place behind the city of
Sarasota. The most recent
certified tax rolls have North
Port valued at $2.9 billion,
Venice valued at $3 billion
and Longboat Key at $4.1 bil-
lion.
City Manager Marty Black
doesn't have a problem with
Venice sliding toward last
place on Sarasota County's
list.


"It clearly demonstrates
the, past five years and the
demographics that are shift-
ing in the county," Black said.
"We don't intend to race the
city of Sarasota or North Port
to be the second largest city.
We won't do that."
Land values determine
how much tax revenue a
municipality generates, and
quite often, how much clout a
city has when dealing with
county, state and federal law-
makers. Many have accused
county officials of ignoring
South County needs in favor
of Longboat Key and Sara-
sota, which both generate a
larger amount of tax dollars.
- For the past six years,
Sarasota has consistently
hovered at around 16.3 per-
cent of countywide tax rev-
enue, and Longboat Key at
just under 9.0 percent. Ven-
ice's share has inched upward
to 6.58 percent in 2005 com-
pared to 6.02 percent in 1999.
Real estate in the city was val-
ued at $1.5 billion in 1999.
North Port has been the
exception, surging from only


3 percent ($663 million) in
1999 to 6.37 percent in 2005.
That has been cutting into the
unincorporated county's
share, lowering it from 65.9
percent in 1999 down to 61.7
percent in 2005.
Making friends
Some have worried about
North Port's development
competing with Venice's
needs. Black said that's not
the case, and that Venice and
North Port have a "strong
alliance" as neighbors.
Venice has lent solid waste
workers and trucks to assist
with North Port's shortage.
City Manager Steve Crowell
held off on North Port's police
chief search until Venice was
done hiring its chief so the
two cities were not in compe-
tition with each other.
"Just generally, I like Marty
and being able to work with
him," Crowell said. "There's a
personal relationship there
where we're able to commu-
nicate and talk."
Venice has had its share of
disagreements with outside
agencies, most recently with
Sarasota County. The city and
county have been at odds
over development and trans-
portation issues, with the two


sides pointing fingers at each
other.
Creating a friend in North
Port could be Venice's best
move. North Port is one of the
state's largest cities, compris-
ing 103 square miles. Only 10
percent of that land is devel-
oped, meaning North Port
will only continue to grow.
Crowell, who was hired as
North Port city manager last
July following a lengthy
search, said infrastructure
improvements like roads and
new employees are the city's
No. 1 problem. North Port is-
sued just less than 5,000
building permits last year for
new homes.
Any assistance from its
next-door neighbor will be
greatly appreciated.
"Venice and North Port are
two different kinds of cities
right now," Crowell said.
"There are some issues that
affect the two cities, like
transportation and water
quality issues. ... And it's hap-
pening more and more. As we
grow, we realize we're not an
island."

Property tax


deadline is March 31


STAFF REPORT


According to Tax Collector
Barbara Ford-Coates, in order
to avoid a penalty, property
tax payments must be made
or postmarked by March 31.
More than 90 percent of
the tax roll has been collected
totaling more than $735 mil-
lion.
Reminder notices will be
mailed in mid April to those
who do not pay by the 31st.
Real estate tax payments
made after March 31 must
include a 3-percent penalty,
and if not paid by April 28,
those accounts will be adver-
tised.
Tangible tax payments
made after March 31 must
include a penalty of 1 percent
per month, plus a $2 delin-
quent fee and will be adver-
tised if not paid by April 28.
"There are many ways to
pay your taxes," Ford-Coates
said. Customers can pay by
electronic check, where the
money is sent directly from
their checking account.
"This is an extremely con-
venient way to pay property
taxes, and there, is no addi-
tional fee for this service," she
said. Payments can also be


made by credit card at:
SarasotaTaxCollector.com or
by calling toll-free (877) 729-
2001.
Credit card payments have
an additional 2.5-percent fee
added by the processor, and
are accepted only online or by
phone. The only exception is
Discover card (2.5 percent
fee), which is now accepted in
the office in person. Debit
cards are also accepted with a
$1.50 processing fee.
Anyone wishing to pay
taxes in person may do so at
four locations, Monday
through Thursday, 8:30 a.m.-5
p.m. and Friday, 8:30 a.m.-
5:30 p.m. at the Terrace
Building, on the corner of
U.S. 301 and Ringling
Boulevard in Sarasota; the

That didn't happen. In-

questions, helped launch a
federal review and contrib-

"(Lopez) underestimated
me. He thought because I

Not every resident has

those of his attorney,
Preiksat.

know who to believe," said
resident Jason Parvu, who
said all anyone wants is a
decent place to live.
Last October, Canada be-
gan to feel Lopez and VHA
were not being completely
honest, but he was wading
into complicated tax laws
and U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Devel-
opment regulations that he
didn't fully understand. He
needed legal advice he
couldn't pay for.
Preiksat said he was
taught to help others, and it
was important to answer
Canada's call for help and
volunteer to review some of
the documents.
Five months later,
Preiksat says he has logged
about 100 hours of service
on be-half of the Residents
Council. Preiksat's regular
rate is $200 an hour, but he
shrugs off the $20,000 of
donated time.
"It's personal," Preiksat
said. "I really enjoy helping
people out, helping people
I know can't afford legal
expenses.... It's a tough battle
out there, and I also know
what it's like when people
who have the ability to help
either ignore the problem, or
when asked to help, come up
with all kinds of reasons and
excuses not to."
Canada and the Residents
Council aren't the only ones


FCAT- ...i.- !A
formation about the prompts
prior to giving the exam.
Monkey business
Both Baus and Carlene
Judge, director of student
accountability and informa-
tion services for the Sarasota
County School Board, inter-
viewed the teacher on Feb. 8
and examined student test
booklets to see if there were
similarities in the answers.
They found some.
The prompt asked stu-
dents to describe smart ani-
mals. A number of students
wrote about monkeys, and
their answers contained
similar fact, statements. Dis-
trict investigators then inter-
viewed the students.
"Each student told us that
the teacher had them brain-
storm what possible 'smart'
animals might be. Then, they
talked about what smart ani-


raising questions.
The HUD Field Office in
Miami has called upon VHA
to answer concerns voiced
by the Residents Council.
The city of Venice has asked
HUD officials for a compre-
hensive review of all contracts
and agreements between
VHA and Picerne Develop-
ment, the private company
handling the $11.3 million
project.
Florida Housing Finance
Corp. will decide in August
if VHA will receive the tax
credits needed to demolish
and build 72 apartment
units. VHA would apply in
2007 to have an additional 72
units built.
Whose voice is it?
Some residents also claim
that Canada is not represent-
ing their views. Canada, a
disabled building contractor,
said he is for all those who
attend the Residents Council
meetings.
And that has been a prob-
lem in itself. Out of 46 apart-
ment units, the best resident
turnout has been 13 resi-
dents, but the typical atten-
dance is closer to three or
four.
So Canada is the only
resident at every VHA board
meeting, the one reading over
every set of meeting minutes
and double-checking every
action that affects the resi-
dents.
Both the former executive


mals might do that made
them smart," wrote Judge in
her report the the Florida
Department of Education
dated Feb. 14. "One boy said
the teacher 'got a hold of the
prompt' and another said the
teacher 'dreamed that the
prompt might be about smart
animals'."
"We believe that there was
no blatant intent to cheat,
however, the teacher did not
follow correct procedures,"
Judge concluded.
Tests not invalidated
District officials have de-
cided not to invalidate the
tests, and forwarded them
on to the state for scoring.
"(We) feel that the stu-
dents' work represents their
own ability to write and
express their ideas. The sto-
ries that were written we
believe are valid and reliable
indicators of the students'
work," Judge wrote.


director and VHA board
members have said in meet-
ings that Canada does not
represent all of the residents.
VHA Chairman Richard
Appell said the Section 8
voucher program, which will
be used to relocate residents
if Grove Terrace is demol-
ished, is much more stable
than Canada is telling resi-
dents.
"If all of the residents
were to attend the meetings,
there might be a different
take on what's going on. ...
I know there are some resi-
dents who want to redevelop
and believe in the voucher
program," said Appell, add-
ing that it takes an act of
Congress to cut someone's
vouchers.
"Yes, it is a possibility
(their vouchers could be
cut). Is it likely? No. I would
compare it to them cutting
Social Security."
One resident, who admits
she never attends the Resi-
dents Council meetings, said
a person doesn't have the
right to complain if he or
she never shows up. She
also admits she had her
doubts about the motives of
Canada and Preiksat.
And then the two of them
reviewed more than 2,000
pages of public records to
uncover the e-mail memo
in which Lopez suggested
using evictions to reduce
the number of low-income
residents and increase the


DOE officials will have the
final say when they complete
their own investigation,
which could include revoking
Betts' teaching certification.
There is no word on when the
DOE Office of Professional
Practices Services will com-
plete its investigation.
Lesson learned
School officials called the
security breach a "grievous
error in judgment," and
noted the teacher's inexperi-
ence, having taught only
since 2004.
While supporting the sus-
pension, Baus and Norris are
standing by their teacher.
Baus described Betts as an
outstanding teacher. Norris
reported she "consistently
has her class engaged in and
excited about what they're
learning."
In his letter to Commis-
sioner Winn, Norris urged
DOE not to impose further


COST OFA CAUSE
VHA Residents Council has been charged $525 in copying fees
for public records, according to attorney Jon Preiksat, who is
donating his time to the public housing residents. Venice Housing
Authority itself has charged about $175 for making copies of
public records, and Packard Consulting just sent a bill for $349.65
to Preiksat.
It was e-mails from Packard Consulting that contained the
"eviction memo," which suggested using evictions to reduce the
number of low-income residents. Preiksat plans to challenge the
copying amounts.
"We wouldn't have had to spend any of this money if they had
complied with the regulations," Preiksat said. 'They knew those
documents were there, and they didn't want to give them up."
The Residents Council was given $1,000 last year by VHA to set
up its office, but other than that does not receive any funding for
advocacy of resident rights.
"It's not a requirement we give them that money," VHA chair
Richard Appell. "It's an option. If you read the requirements, they
should be out having fundraisers themselves, having fundraisers
like a bake sale or something."
Preiksat disagrees with Appell, thinks VHA is required to fund
the Residents Council and called his bake sale comments an
"insult"
"How much money can you raise for a bake sale?" Preiksat said.
"Can you raise enough money to cover all of these costs for
expenses we've had to expend.... They don't comply with the
law, and we have to have a bake sale. Is that a rule now?"

profits of Picerne Develop-
ment.
That gave the seven-year
resident, who would only
give her first name, Pam, a
bit of hope that Preiksat and
Canada are looking out for
them.
Something has to be done
because fear and division
dominate Grove Terrace, and
she blames Lopez for pitting
neighbor against neighbor.

"I believe she has learned
a very valuable lesson. I urge
you to not impose a perma-
nent sanction or any sanc-

the classroom. We look for-
ward to a long and success-ful
relationship with Ms.
Betts in our elementary
classrooms," Norris wrote.

Red light cameras catching violators at two intersections


Florida has historically rejected the use of traffic
cameras to catch red light runners. Sarasota
County is one of four communities doing pilot
projects to gather evidence on their effect.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A couple of overhead traf-
fic cameras have electronical-
ly captured almost 400 Sara-
sota County motorists run-
ning red lights since mid-
January.
The photographic evi-
dence is being sent to Florida
lawmakers who have histori-
cally opposed the issuance of
citations.
"We've sent out 274 letters
to the vehicle owners so far,"
said Don Galloway, the coun-
ty's traffic engineering man-
ager, "and there are another
120 pending. What we're


learning is this system works.
Our objective is to show the
legislators we have a prob-
lem."
A handful of state legisla-
tors believe cameras that cap-
ture red light runners could
be an effective deterrent, but
most worry that local law
enforcement officials would
use them either for raising
revenue or other unintended
purposes.
State Rep. Ron Reagan, R-
Bradenton, has filed House
Bill 259, also known as the
"Mark Wandall Traffic Safety
Act." If adopted, it would al-
low cities and counties to is-
sue citations and collect fines


from the owners of cars that
are photographed running
red lights.
The bill is named for a
Sarasota resident who was
killed at a local intersection in
2003 by a driver who ran a red
light.
It targets motorists who
enter an intersection after a
traffic signal has turned red
and captures the violation
with two electronically trans-
mitted photographs.
"Over my objections, we
announced in newspapers
and on television that these
cameras were being in-
stalled," said Galloway. "Dri-
vers should be aware that the
cameras are there. At the end
of 90 days we'll submit a
report on this to the county
commission."
Still trying
Peek Traffic, a company


that manufactures traffic sig-
nals and has an office in
Palmetto, supplied the coun-
ty with two cameras at no
cost. It transmits photos of
red light runners to the coun-
ty traffic officials over Com-
cast Cablevision equipment.
Clear evidence of a traffic
violation results in letters
being sent to the owners of
cars, along with pictures of
the incident, the time and
date.
The county has no author-
ity to take action against red
light runners unless their
infractions are witnessed by
deputies.
Peek technicians have
installed cameras at 17th
Street and North Lockwood
Ridge Road in Sarasota to
catch eastbound violators,
and at Jacaranda Boulevard
and Commercial Court in
Venice to catch southbound


violators.
Most infractions take place
in Sarasota.
"The company has also
installed cameras for pilot
projects in Manatee County,
Melbourne and Orlando that
are going on simultaneously,"
Galloway said. "Bills have
been filed with the state legis-
lature to allow this for the last
eight years. It doesn't hurt to
keep trying."
All four communities went
forward with pilot projects,
despite the fact that Florida
Attorney General Charlie
Crist has warned they cannot
be used to issue traffic cita-
tions when vehicles are
caught breaking the law on
film.
Changes needed
Crist is the Republican
Party's frontrunner to suc-
ceed Gov. Jeb Bush this fall.


He waded into the red light
surveillance camera issue last
July with a legal opinion
directed to a fifth community
- Pembrooke Pines in
Southeast Florida that also
wants to install them.
It states: "Legislative
changes are necessary before
local governments may issue
traffic citations and penalize
drivers who fail to obey red
light indications on traffic sig-
nal devices," which is what
Sarasota County and the
other communities have in
mind.
County traffic officials
have reported that surveil-
lance cameras could be pur-
chased from vendors and
installed for between $50,000
and $80,000 apiece. They
have estimated it would cost
about $2,000 a month to
process the film collected
from each of them.


Caspersen Beach Bridge
to close March 27

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

Because of safety concerns
about the structural integrity
of the bridge and the proxim-
ity of construction equip-
ment and materials to the
park amenities, county offi-
cials decided to close the
bridge completely during
construction.
The short-span Caspersen
Beach Bridge is more than 50
years old, and is at the end of
its design life. The new bridge
is designed to provide safe
and reliable access to the
island for 75 years.
The project also includes
aesthetic improvements and
the replacement of seawalls
under the bridge. The existing
vertical navigational clear-
ance for boats will not be
changed.
The Board of County
Commissioners awarded the
construction contract to Lu-
cas Marine Construction Inc.
of Stuart.
Funding is provided by the

Sarasota County agrees to water settlement


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

The settlement of a fester-
ing dispute between Sarasota
and Charlotte counties over
the cost of water cleared its
final hurdle Tuesday.
Sarasota County conmmis-
sioners agreed to support a
cash settlement of $305,874
for the purchase of 2 million
gallons of water from Char-
lotte County as part of an
amended Peace River/Mana-
sota Regional Water Supply
Authority water supply con-
tract known as the Peace
River Option.
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton pulled the consent agen-
da item to make sure the deal
was the best that could have
been made for Sarasota
County.
George MacFarlane, enter-
prise operations manager for
county Environmental Serv-
ices, gave his assurances that


the deal was a good one.
"I've been around this for a
white," MacFarlane said. "As a
condition of the contract, we
believe this is the right thing
to do."
Commission Chairman
David Mills praised commis-
sioner Shannon Staub, who
sits on the water authority
board, for getting the deal.
"It started at $900,000 and
we ended at $300,000, so I
think that's a pretty good
deal," Mills said. "I would
have preferred zero dollars,
but this isn't bad."
Thaxton said that if this
was the best deal which could
be had, he would support it.
Charlotte and Sarasota
counties entered into an
agreement in 1996 over the
costs of the water but a dis-
agreement arose between
them regarding the quantity
of water Sarasota was to
receive and the cost of that
water based on the earlier

agreement.
Sarasota, Charlotte and the
water authority entered a
three-party agreement that
required Sarasota to purchase
2 mgd of Charlotte County's
water allocation.
Sarasota agreed to pay 100
percent of the cost of the
water and to make all pay-
ments directly the water
authority.
Charlotte County had
sought $922,808, but the
water authority offered a debt
refund, dropping the disput-


ed amount to $611,749.
After further discussion,
the two sides agreed to split
the final cost and Sarasota
agreed to pay the settlement
amount.

Construction costs worrying school board


BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Concerns about the esca-
lating costs of school con-
struction were raised by the
Sarasota County School
Board mem- auW-.- ".M
bers and Sup-
erintendent
Gary Norris
during the
b o ar d s -
monthly work
session. -
Board
member d
Se b e Norris
Laura Benson
initiated the
discussion, pointing to an
article she recently had read
in The St. Petersburg Times
about plans for a new high
school estimated to cost $56
million. The student body
was close to the size of that at
Riverview High School, which
the Sarasota district is work-
ing to replace at an estimated
cost of $85 million.
Plans call for construction
of the new Sarasota school to
begin in August, with com-
pletion set for August 2008,
according to Norris. It will be
built on the same 42-acre


campus where the current
facility is located, off Proctor
Road.
Although she had learned
the figures used in that article
were old, Benson said, "I'm
having some palpitations
S over the cost
of Riverview."
Benson
noted that
while a bud-
get of about
$80 million
Vi had been in
1 z ,. the district's
Benson capital plan,
Benson "we all know
that will fluc-
tuate because of labor and
materials" and other costs.
Further, she said, "I was
struck by the process by
which we ended up with the
price for our school," driven,
she said, by what everybody
associated with the school
wanted to have in the plans.
Therefore, she said, she felt
the board was not putting any
"downward pressure" on the
construction budget, to bor-
row a phrase from the board's
vice chairman, Frank Kovach.
Norris responded that he
meant no offense, but he


needed to point out that
"You've characterized that
180 degrees wrong."
The Florida Department of
Education puts very strict
limits on costs, he added.
"You as a board in Florida
have more control over con-
struction costs than any other
boards in America."
The Riverview High School
staff members, he said, had
made their requests "in the
context of what the state of
Florida allows." DOE specifies
how much square footage is
needed according to the pro-
jected student enrollment, he
added. If a board exceeds
that, Norris said, that board
must justify the extra expens-
es to the taxpayers.
At present, Norris said,
school construction is run-
ning about $200 per square
foot.
Escalation
He apologized to Benson
for characterizing the plan-
ning process with the school
staff as "letting everyone ask
what they want." The primary
fact the board members
needed to keep in mind, he
said, was that they had no


control over the escalating
construction costs.
He recently had learned of
an elementary school project
in Pinellas County that was
running about $214 per
square foot, Norris added.
"That's $30 or $40 a square
foot over what we're budget-
ing for any of our projects. I'm
frankly scared to death at
whatI'm seeing happening."
Because of those concerns,
he said, he and other admin-
istrative officials were taking
the state's allowable square
footage at Riverview and
compressing, asking staff at
the high school, "What can
you live with?"
Returning to the earlier
point about involving a lot of
people in the planning
process for a new school,
board member John Lewis
said, "I really believe very
much in consensus building
on the facilities" in the dis-
trict.
"I know we as elected offi-
cials have that fine line to
walk between how much tax-
payers' money we're willing to
spend for things, where citi-
zens realize we're being a
good steward and not just


saying we're going to buy a
Cadillac on every issue we do.
"I don't think we should
ever tell people, 'Here's the
maximum amount and you
guys try to fit it in there,' "
Lewis added. "That's our job,"
to build the best facility with-
in the available parameters.
Norris also pointed out
that Associate Superintend-
ent and Chief Financial Of-
ficer Bob Earley had discov-
ered that the district in the
past had not done a good job
of reusing furniture and
equipment in new schools;
yet, furnishing a facility is one
of the biggest expenses.
"Bob has tightened up on
all of that," Norris said.
Pared down
Earley noted that North
Port High School, which was
completed about five years
ago, started out at about $46
million before two additions
were included and adjust-
ments made for an increase
in student enrollment.
Applying the cost experi-
ences of that school, Norris
said, and implementing the
staff's "wish list" for the new
Riverview High School had


given him an initial estimate
of $120 million, which he had
pared down to about $85 mil-
lion.
Earley added that he just
had received notices that day
that the cost of steel was up
another 10 percent, along
with the cost of gypsum prod-
ucts.
"Those two items in a
school today- they're huge,"
he said.
In response to another
comment' from Benson,
Norris said the Education
Foundation of Sarasota
County and the Riverview
foundation were working to
obtain public contributions
to help pay for the new high
school through the opportu-
nities for naming rights in
portions of the facility.
Finally, in response to a
question from Lewis, Norris
said he was working with the
architect on plans to make
the new Riverview High
School a "green" facility,
incorporating more environ-
ment-friendly features.
"It always costs a little bit
more to do that, but in the
long run, you save money,"
Lewis said.

Obesity could be the number one threat in U.S.


S uncoast residents and their children are
fat.
Despite our beaches and swimming
pools where bathing suits are appropri-
ate attire there seems to be no shortage
of individuals who stuff themselves with
less than healthy foods. Worse, we aren't
alone.
Thirty years ago, slender European wom-
en ridiculed American tourists with large
hips, flabby thighs and broad bottoms.
Recently a report published by the Inter-
national Association for the Study of Obesity
said the the number of obese school-age
children in Europe has risen almost 50
percent since the late 1990s.
Some world health groups claim obesity
is as dangerous as terrorism or global warm-
ing. The American Medical Association said
poor diet and physical inactivity are the
second-leading cause of death in the United
States.
In a world were starvation is a critical


problem, the Worldwatch Institute reports
"the number of overweight individuals
worldwide rivals those who are under-
weight."
"This is going to be the first generation
that's going to have a lower life expectancy
than their parents," adds Dr. Philip James,
chairman of the International Association
for the Study of Obesity.
What's gone wrong? And why don't we
seem to care?
Instead of drinking water, milk or juice,
large numbers of Florida families consume
sugar-saturated soft drinks, sports drinks,
iced tea and lemonade. A newly released
study conducted by Children's Hospital in
Boston indicated that children who elimi-
nated sugar-filled drinks lost a pound a
month.
"Sugary beverages have no nutritional
value and seem to make a huge contribu-
tion to weight gain," lead researcher Dr. Carla
Ebbling says.


But eliminating sugar is just one step in
returning families to health. Floridians need
to exercise and eat better.
Last month health officials in Charlotte,
Sarasota and DeSoto counties supported
brief "Step Up, Florida" programs that en-
couraged walking, bicycle riding, jogging,
swimming and other healthy activities.
Walking and spontaneous outdoor play
are almost forgotten activities in some two-
job households. Children become mesmer-
ized by television at an early age. Busy par-
ents find TV to be a convenient babysitter.
School buses and well-meaning soccer
moms prevent children from walking or
riding bicycles. Who can blame them.
Highways crammed with traffic are danger-
ous, and predators prey on Florida chil-
dren.
The Florida Department of Health is one
of 20 in the United States receiving federal
funds to battle obesity. Florida's Obesity
Prevention Program provides families and


schools with information; evaluates pilot
programs; works with local agencies; over-
sees community programs; and encourages
physical activity and healthful nutrition.
But is information or offering programs
enough when procrastination and sticking
our heads in the sand are the American
way?
Even with solid evidence and dire warn-
ings, thousands of Floridians continue to
smoke tobacco products. No one seems to
care that 3,500 people died in largely pre-
ventable Florida highway crashes last year.
The number of sexually transmitted diseases
keeps increasing. Many people wait until the
last minute to prepare for hurricanes.
Staring at our own naked body in a full-
length mirror doesn't seem to produce
action. So we doubt warnings will make a
difference.
Watchful parents and adult discipline
may be the only answer for our kids.
Who's going to crack the whip on us?


Do you feel the



added burden?


Each year Florida Tax
Watch puts out a booklet on
how we as a state are doing
holding down taxes.
If I asked someone on the
street, they would likely say
that they think the Repub-
licans and Jeb are really cut-
ting taxes, since that is their
war cry. Of course, we all
know of the sales-tax holiday
in August to help families
buy clothes for school.
Does all of that hype really
translate to a lower tax bur-
den?
The good news is that
overall Florida is still a pretty
low tax-rate state. We are
well below the U.S. average
tax per capital, of $3,220 as
the average Floridian pays
only $2,784. The not-so-good
news is that our ranking has
slipped from 36th in the
country to 32nd:
On the local side the tax
load is a little closer to the
national average, only a dif-
ference of just more than
$100 dollars. In this case we
rank 21st in tax load. What
has happened is the tax bur-
den has been shoved down
to the local governments.
I noticed one quite vocal
local person was saying he
was going to leave because
of the heavy tax burden. I
have the answer for him.
The lowest local tax burden
- only $455 is in Arkan-
sas. Have a nice time.
We rely on sales tax so
much because we are only
one of seven states without
income tax, so we are to-
ward the top, actually third,
in per-person sales tax, al-
most a $1,000 each. The
least costly state for that is
Virginia.
Remember, though, that
Sarasota County charges an
extra cent to fund libraries
and extra things we could
not fund in a timely fashion
otherwise. At 7 percent we
are near the top of the heap,
with only those in California
and some other selected
local municipalities at a
higher rate.
It might surprise you to
find that Florida is below
the national average in prop-


erty taxes, with my previous
state, New Jersey, being the
leader at almost twice our
cost. In taxes on intangibles
Florida's ranking is dropping
because of repeal of those
taxes; this
is where the Republicans can
certainly take credit.
The area of taxation that
Florida leads the country in
is stock transfer and docu-
mentary taxes. The average is
$186 a head, while in Georgia
it is only 5 cents.
We also lead in one other
area alcoholic beverage
taxes where we have the
largest collections. We can
boast that we are twice the
national average.
No wonder there are so
many DUIs. Yet this high rate
may be to try to discourage
drinking.
We also rank No. 1 in utili-
ties taxes, more than three
times the national average.
If you look at the tax bur-
den as a percent of income,
we rank pretty far down the
list. We are 38th out of 50
with a 6-percent tax burden.
As a comparison, in Hawaii
it is 10.1 percent and Ver-
mont 9.48 percent.
However, only four years
ago our burden was 45th in
the country, so you can see
we are feeling a larger tax hit.
Tax Watch expects that
trend to continue, as Florida
has the third-fastest-rising
state tax growth in the coun-
try, having grown 24 percent
since 2000. Republicans
haven't controlled it yet.
This trend is likely to con-
tinue as escalating real estate
transactions drive property
tax collections to new highs.
Just remember that we
still are ranked 32nd in the
country. New York wins, with
Connecticut a very close
second. It is cheapest to live
in Alabama and Arkansas.


By's Crack: Believing
there will be no increase in
taxes is an act of faith com-
parable to believing there
really are 1,000 little
squares in that roll of toilet
tissue.


Received an article from
the Door County Advocate in
Sturgeon Bay,Wis., about how
the newspaper had decided
to go from three days a week
back to two. The people
missed the high school
results on Wednesday, so they
combined their Tuesday and
Thursday editions.

Who needs all those tourists anyway?


Editor:
Some of you may recall my letter opposing beach renour-
ishment in Venice written in December of 1994. I felt that we
would be losing something that made our beaches different
from any others in Florida: beach fossil collecting, especially
for shark's teeth. I felt that would result in lost tourist trade.
I think I was right. But now I'm glad the renourishment
was done ... and done again. I find the beaches much more
enjoyable with the much smaller number of beachgoers.
And save for four or five weeks a season, it's easy to find a
parking place at the beach.
Good riddance to the fossil-hunting tourists who used to
crowd the beaches every week from October to May, even in
the face of red tide. We who prefer the extra room at our
bigger beaches say we're better off without them.
Further, I think we should eliminate any reference to
sharks' teeth in Venice, just to make sure they don't return.
Let's put a new image out there for Venice tourism. Having
pigs as the city's mascot is a good start. That should throw
off any sharks'-tooth hunters.
And let's make sure to set aside enough money for future
beach renourishment. It'll be worth every penny.

Insurance prices
getting ridiculous
Editor:
As we all know, Florida is
a tourist state. Most of all
our income in some way or
another comes from tourism.
Our senators and repre-
sentatives want to tax the
snowbirds 3 percent on their
property to help pay for
falling short of payments by
Citizens Property Insurance
Co.
Are these people going to
take their property with them
when they go back up north?
Do they only pay premiums
for six months of the year?
They still have to pay a
water bill even though they
don't use any water. That is a
guaranteed income if I ever


heard one.
Why don't our lawmakers
make it a rule, if you sell
insurance of any kind in
Florida, you must make af-
fordable insurance for every-
one who has property here.
But no, insurance companies
jump out of insuring prop-
erty because of a bad year.
What about the 10 or 15
years that they had a few or
no claims? Were their clients
given a discount? Lower
prices? Greater coverage?
Did our lawmakers come
to the population and ask
for a pay raise? Or did they
tack their raises on other
bills that are used as rider to
these bills?
If these people aren't care-
ful, no one is going to be here


because we won't be able to
afford insurance either.
Will the last person leaving
Florida turn out the lights?

VHA residents
deserve a guarantee
Editor:
I can't sit by and read your
caller's comment that Grove
Terrace should be torn down.
Wasn't that law repealed for
taking people's homes or is
VHA exempt from laws
defending American's rights?
I know someone who has
been in Grove Terrace and
said he was in a very nice
apartment and he was not
speaking with profit in mind.
He said some may need re-
modeling and upgrades but
not rebuilt, unless like Carter
Canada said it is to disperse
the residents.
The current residents
should be guaranteed their
future living quarters in any
new building because they
cannot be punished or evict-
ed by VHA's actions. Also,
this concrete structure last-
ed 30 years; how long will a
wood frame replacement last
in tropical storms and hurri-
canes? This is a farce on the
taxpayers.
God's directive is to help
your neighbors help them-
selves, not steal their homes
and drive them to the county
line to pawn them off on
other counties. That one is
exclusive tb Venice and Sara-
sota County when it comes
to affordable housing not


in their back yard. It's always
OK with them for my back
yard and your back
yard, just not their back yard.

We have enough
condos for now
Editor:
As a resident of Engle-
wood, I would like the county
commissioners to deny re-
zoning for any more condos.
They will bring more traffic
to overload the streets and
schools we now have.
The people of Old Engle-
wood would like to keep it a
nice, quiet residential neigh-
borhood, not a concrete and
blacktop jungle. If one de-
veloper gets in, it will open
the gate and be just like
Placida Road.
The people of Sarasota
County and commissioners
have said we need afford-
able housing. We will not
have it by replacing mobile
homes with million-dollar
condos.

What's the holdup
on the chipper?
Editor:
On Feb. 15, the city of
North Port voted 5-0 to go to
court to force the owner of
the chipper mill on Joe Jeff

ordinances. Until the city at-
torney files papers, the city
trucks are using this site and
keeping it in business.

No chairs, no sense. What happened to the comfortable
furniture that once was in the entranceway to the Venice

I needed to sit down every now and then. The only chair that
I could find is in the lady's restroom. It's very inconvenient.

Unprofessional. I was ap-
palled at the city council
meeting on Feb. 28. We had
a report by Chief Johnson
and Chief McGoogan for an
ordinance on false alarms
for fire and police. Chief
Johnson did a great job tell-
ing about the ordinance,
which the city of Sarasota,
Sarasota County, Longboat
Key and North Port have.
Basically he copied the same
ordinance, and we had two
members of council decide
not to vote for it. One was
Mr. Hammett and the other
was Mr. Simmonds. This is
very poor when you get a
recommendation from your
chief that could save some-
body's life. Both Hammett
and Simmonds made it
sound like a few phone calls,
a few false alarms, and Chief
Johnson indicated it was
about 230 a year. They run
hot to these things. I'm sure
if Mr. Hammett's kid got hit
on a bicycle because the fire
department's going to a false
alarm because the alarm sys-
tem isn't working property,
he'd be the first one to yell.
He voted against something
that would be best for safety
for our community.
i Get serious. It, was very
interesting the other night at
the airport workshop. It was
nice that they held it. They
sound like they want to do
something. However, I still
have one concern. Mr. Watts,
the airport manager, is push-
ing for voluntary noise re-
duction and looking for
buffering solutions to reduce
noise and air pollution by
jets. And if memory serves
me right, I think it must be
three or four years ago, at an
official city council meeting,
the mayor of Venice said he
was going to look into the
very same thing, reducing
noise and air pollution by
putting buffers in strategic
locations. Nothing, obviously,
was ever done. Will it take
another three or four years?
It is very simple to get buffers
at an airport. It's time to get
serious about this. The noise
is one thing, but the pollu-
tion is dangerous.

People keep blaming the
commissioners, but they
can't hold the hand of highly
paid department heads.
At the February meeting,
the taxpayers were told that
city trucks that were seen at
the chipper mill were bring-
ing in hurricane debris. I
found that hard to believe.
So what's the reason
today? Doing business with
people or a business that
violates the laws of our city
doesn't say much about the

A different kind
of sticker shock
Editor:
When leaving Precinct 137
yesterday, after voting on the
school tax issue, a Venice
High School student asked
me for the "I voted" sticker I
received after casting my
vote. When questioned as to
why the student wanted the
sticker, I was told that "Mrs.
David," a teacher at VHS,
was giving extra-credit for all
the stickers collected.
Unbelievable! A teacher
giving extra credit to stud-
ents standing outside polling


places for collecting "I vot-
ed" stickers from the voting
public. Why would a teacher
do such a thing?
She had told the student
that if the tax extension
didn't pass her pay could
drop by one-third.
Could it have been a
calculated attempt to hope-
fully keep the voter turnout
low? The stickers were meant
to remind those who may
have forgotten to vote to get
to a poll to cast their vote.
Would a low voter turnout
favor passage of the bill?
R.L. Thinnes

It was interesting learning
that many voting-age high
school children got home-
work credit for bringing back
an "I voted" sticker. One en-
terprising student stood out-
side a poll and collected
everyone's when they came
out. He likely got all the credit
he needs for a while.
Wasn't it interesting to find
out the day after the election
the state plans to increase
the amount given to educa-
tion statewide. I would as-
sume this would change the
plans of our district.

Barbara Farrar, one of
the many great teachers at
Venice High, celebrated
crossing over the five-decade
mark last Thursday. Barb is a
spectacular English teacher
who also has been the senior
class advisor for years. She
truly takes the kids' long-
term interests to heart and
affects lives.
Speaking of Venice High,
you might just want to ven-
ture over to see the Venice
High Girls softball team that
is ranked seventh in the state.
They even have their own
concession stand this year
and a new "old" coach: Larry
Sandburg came out of retire-
ment to coach the team.

I was coming over the


north bridge onto the island
when a car turned from
Tampa Avenue into our lane
trying to go off the island.
That is not the first time I
have seen that happen.
The city would be wise
to put lines showing traffic
where to turn, like it has in
many other places. The
county could stand to do this
at Center and Jacaranda, and
Jacaranda and Venice Avenue.
People not familiar with the
divided highways and maybe
not quite as good eyesight
can easily make that mistake.

Today's Ism (a sign at a car
dealer): The best way to get
back on your feet is to miss a

Speaking of the high
school, it has been going
through fire inspections. The
fire marshal has cracked
down, making them remove
drapes from windows, bean
bag chairs even nice
leather furniture that had
been donated to make a
warmer setting in one class.
He made teachers take
down mobiles kids had made
and much more. Wouldn't
you think if they'd get rid of
all those things, they would
get rid of the books and
homework papers?;~,, ;

One of the side benefits of
working out and losing
weight is that your health
gets measurably better. Dr.
Schwarz at Venice Family
Practice, who is on my case
pretty often, gave me the
good news that cholesterol
was down to 145, even the
LDL was in tolerance, the
first time in a long time.
Blood pressure had come
down a lot, to about 112
over 70.
The workout Nazi Lynn,
is really making me work
hard. I am anxious to see if
any of my 25 million fat cells
has gotten any smaller.
Sad news coming out of
the YMCA is that its very
talented Wellness Czaress
sometimes referred to as
Wellness Director, Melanie
Mullally, is leaving in a cou-
ple of months to go to Mem-
phis. Memphis?
She will be missed, as
she has really brought a lot of
great programs to the Y -
although her legacy might
be the 50-plus TVs she now
has in place. Bogey's has
finally been beaten.

Call center adds staff for hurricane season


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Anyone wanting informa-
tion about practically any-
thing happening within the
Sarasota County government
need only call one number:
(941) 861-5000.
That number answered
by an actual person willing to
answer any question relating
to county activities aver-
ages more than 40,000 calls a
month.
The Sarasota County Call
Center is a resource for peo-
ple who want to know when
an event is happening in the
county, who represents them
and nearly everything in
between.
Many of the calls this time
of year are from people sign-
ing up for summer camps for
their children or seeking
information about an event
at their local library.
The center also serves as
the conduit for the coLnt0to--
share information with the
community about the threat
of an oncoming hurricane.


AUDREY BENNETT
of Venice died Monday, March
20, 2006. She was 90. Born in
Columbus, Ohio, she lived in
Cincinnati and worked for
Formica. She moved to Venice
14 years ago. She was preceded
in death by her husband,
Donald, and a son, Richard.
Survivors include her son and
daughter-in-law, Tom and Alice
of Venice. 6 grand-children, 12
great grandchildren and 2
great great grandchildren.
Services no local services are
planned. 238971


Donna Campbell, the
manager of the call center,
told county commissioners
Wednesday that the center
will double its staff during
storm events, from 12 people
to 24 people who will be avail-
able to answer the phone in
eight-hour shifts.
The number will be part of
the news crawl on television
warnings about a threatening
storm, Campbell said.
When Hurricane Charley
threatened Southwest Florida
more than 10,000 people
called the county for informa-
tion on the 861-5000 number
and a county rumor-control
number, overloading the
phone lines.
Since that time, the staffing
levels have increased, and all
calls will now go through the

Big Rapids, MI.
She married Walton H. Schuh
on June 27, 1932 who preceded
in death.
She is survived by her daughter,
Linda Engebretsen of
Farmington, MI and 4
grandchildren and their
spouses: John and his wife
Doris Engebretsen of Belleville,
MI; Marc and his wife Roberta
Engebretsen of Cadillac, MI;
Kathleen and her husband

Mary and her husband Jerrold
Fielder of Caro, MI; 10 great-

call center.
The county is training its
clerical support staff to han-
dle emergency calls, Camp-
bell said. There are 312 coun-
ty employees who will be
tapped for this effort.
People will be able to call
and learn whether they need
to evacuate, where the near-
est shelter to their home is,
what supplies they need and
any other general or specific
information people ask for.
"A lot more people are call-
ing about special-needs shel-
ters," Campbell said. "We are
the alternative to people dial-
ing 9-1-1."
The call center will contin-
ue to expand its information
and services for the public in
general, as well as for hurri-
cane season.

The commissioners prais-
ed the call center staff for its
efforts.
"It is a tremendous service

another way to get the num-

sciousness.
"I know when I sit in traffic
near a county vehicle I know I
notice our Web site address,"
Commissioner Nora Patter-
son said. "It seems like a logi-
cal idea."

RUTH TANNER, 99, Beloved Genealogist |

Mrs. Ruth Tanner, who would have celebrated her 100th birthday
on April llth, died Sunday, March 19th, 2006 at Sunset Lake
Health and Rehabilitation Center, Venice, FL, after a brief illness.
She had, just the week before, been honored by the Florida Chapter
of the New York State Retired Teacher Association which she served
as Vice President from 1969 to 1974. A memorial service will be held
at the First Baptist Church North Port, FL, on April llth.

Born in Scipio, NY on April 11, 1906, Mrs. Tanner, who taught
first in Hinsdale and Massena, NY, was an Auburn Central High
School English and Latin teacher from 1928 until her retirement in
1961. Mrs. Tanner graduated from Auburn Academic High School
in 1924 and from Houghton College in 1928. She married Mr.
Laurence Tanner of Scipio, NY on December 20, 1940, and the
couple maintained the family's large dairy farm while Mrs. Tanner
taught school. After caring for her aging mother for several years,
Mrs. Tanner moved with her husband, Laurence, to North Port, FL
in 1975 for health reasons. There they enjoyed 19 years together
before Mr. Tanner's death in 1994. Mrs. Tanner was active in the
New York State Scipio Community Church and the First Baptist
Church in North Port, FL. She wrote the histories for both of these
churches. She was a founder and charter member of Clan Munro,
Scotland/USA, and a passionate and respected genealogist.

Mrs. Tanner was known by her many friends and acquaintances for
her sweet disposition, sense of humor, and devotion to the study of
genealogy. She was a member of both the Daughters of the
American Revolution (DAR) and the daughters of the American
Colonists from 1968. Active in both organizations in many
capacities over the years, she served as membership secretary for
the Florida DAR. She was frequently sought after for her
considerable expertise in genealogy, and gave her last lecture at the
age of 98 for the Venice DAR.

A resident of Sunset Lake Health and Rehabilitation Center for the
past years, Mrs. Tanner could be found there working at her desk,
filing information and assisting others with their genealogical
research. She leaves two first cousins one-removed: Mrs. Elaine
(Manrow) Westmiller of Weedsport, NY and Dr. Ruth (Stebbins)
Rivera of Kinnelon, NJ; dear friends, Mrs. Doris Johnson and Mr.
Don Barlow of Florida, and countless friends.

family.

County surveying pilot participants
If you are one of the approximately 4,500 Sarasota County
residents who participated in the county's automated garbage
collection pilot, keep an eye on your mail for a survey asking
your opinions about the new collection service. The survey
marks the official end of the six-month pilot, and the results will
be factored into the final decision whether the program will be
implemented county-wide.
Sarasota County Solid Waste began testing the automated
carts last October, to see if they would make garbage pickup
cleaner and more efficient for area residents. Now that the pilot
is ending, Solid Waste Manager Larry Alexander encourages all
pilot participants to complete the survey cards that will soon be
arriving by mail.
"We need residents to tell us if the program was effective
and convenient, and if they have any suggestions for improve-
ment" said Alexander. "Then we will make a recommendation to
the Board of County Commissioners, who will decide whether
the program will be expanded to the rest of the county." That
presentation to commissioners will occur in May.
For more information about automated cart collection service
or to find out if you will receive a survey, contact the Sarasota
County Call Center at (941) 861-5000 and ask for Solid Waste
Customer Service.
Volunteers sought to update Water Atlas
Sarasota County Water Resources is seeking several vol-
unteers to update its Water Atlas. Two positions are for Web
site technicians, who will add studies and reports about water
issues in our community to an electronic library on the county's
Web site. One or two photographers are also being sought for
this job.
The photographers will take digital photos of water bodies,
mostly beaches and creeks, throughout Sarasota County,
then upload those photos to the Water Atlas site. Both
positions require a minimum of four hours per week for at
least three months. If interested, contact Sarasota County at
(941) 861-5000 and ask for John Ryan in Water Resources.

Girls 3rd,

boys 5th

at County

track meet

STAFF REPORT

One point may not sound
like a lot, but when it comes to
separating second and third
place in a seven-school track
and field meet, it looms large.
The Venice High girls team
placed third in Thursday's
Sarasota County Meet held at
Booker High, finishing just
one point behind Sarasota
High.
Riverview was first with
183.5 points. Sarasota was
second at 128.5. Venice had
127.5 points.
"One point, it's hard to
believe," said Lady Indian
coach Brenda Clark. "I'm still
happy with the way we per-
formed. We had a lot of girls
place in the top three."
The Venice girls were first in
the 3200 relay. Stephanie
Korszen, Katie Adams, Genna
Jones and Chelsea Rose
teamed up to run an 11:06 -
17 seconds faster than second
place Sarasota.
Individually, Toni Cristiani
grabbed a first with her discus
toss of 100-7.
There were a number of
seconds and thirds for the
Lady Indians.
Rose had two seconds -
5:50 in the 1600 and 17.22 in
the 100 hurdles.
Korszen was second in the
3200. Courtney Tomlin was
second in the pole vault with a
height of 7-6. Korszen's
younger sister, Emily, was
third in the pole vault at 7-0.
Adams was third in the
triple jump at 29 feet. Cristiani
was third in the shot put with
34-6. Samantha Seeley was
third in the discus at 96-5.

The Venice boys were fifth
out of six teams. Booker won
the team title.
There were some impres-
sive individual performances
by Indians. Most notable was
distance runner Kyle
Brunette, who captured both
the 1600 (4:37) and the 3200
(10:11).
Mike Kimson was second
in the discus with a toss of
138-6.


Cook wins 3

then loses

Jeremie Cook, Venice High's
two-time unbeaten state
champion, won his first three
bouts at 189 pounds before
losing in the quarterfinals
Saturday at the Senior
Nationals in Pittsburgh.
The Senior Nationals
encompasses the top high
school wrestlers from across
the country.
Cook is hoping to place
near the top at his weight as
consolations continue.
Cook won his opening
match, 7-2, over Steve Loomis
out of New York. Cook then
scored a 15-7 major decision
over Tim Jones of Ohio. An 8-3
victory over Shane Miller of
Nevada put Cook in the quar-
terfinals. He lost there, 8-5, to
Travis Stem out of
Pennsylvania.

The Lady Indians, who
came into the tournament
ranked No. 7 in 5A, improved
their season record to 18-2
with four wins in the event.
Venice had feasted on
competition from around the
area, but had something to
prove stepping out against
some tough teams from
noi th ot these parts.
Plant \\as definitely one
of them.
"They have a real good
team," Venice head coach
La rr Sandburg said. "So did
Sickles. \\e played real well in
this tournament. It was fun."
And ho\w.

Baseball team edges
Lakewood Ranch behind
pitching of Josh Struble.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It's been a battle all season long for
the Venice High varsity baseball team.
Now the Indians are winning some of
them.
Venice got a gutsy pitching perfor-
mance from junior Josh Struble,
played good defense and had just
enough offense to score a 2-1 victory
over visiting Lakewood Ranch on a
blustery Friday night.
Venice inched its overall record
closer to .500 at 6-7. All the wins have
been against district opponents. The
Indians are 6-4 in Class 5A District 12.
Ranch fell to 9-6 and 6-4.
Struble (1-1) kept Ranch batters off
balance with his breaking ball, which
he used prolifically. He went 6 1/3
innings, scattering four hits. Brett
Holte came over from first base,
pitched into a bases-loaded situation,
then out of trouble to record the save.
Struble got the hook after allowing


a leadoff single to Gus Schlosser. Holte
got on out, gave up a single and then
walked a batter to load the bases. The
righty bore down to get the final two
outs. Catcher Joe Salomone gave a
god effort to grab a foul pop up for the
second out. Holte got the final out on
a strikeout to seal the big win.
The Venice defense was solid all
night. An around-the-horn double
play in the third stymied a Ranch rally
in the third. Chris Baker led off the top
of the fourth with a double, but was
erased when Struble picked him off.
Jordan Lucas was a steadying rock
at shortstop. He was once again
clutch at the plate, going 2-for-2 and
driving in the winning run with a sin-
gle in the fifth inning.
Salomone, who also had a good
night with the stick against Ranch
starter and loser Schlosser, led off the
fifth with a double. Pinch runner par
excellence Danny Martini came on.
Travis Weatherholt sacrificed him to
third. Lucas then sent a high bouncer
over third to plate Martini and break
the tie.
Ranch scored its lone run in the top
of the first. Venice tied it in its half.
Salomone walked. Weatherholt once


again was a master of moving the
baserunner over with a bunt. Lucas
and Pete Hernandez drew walks from
Schlosser to load the sacks. Holte
brought in a run with a sacrifice fly to
right.
Venice will take a road trip to the
Miami area this coming week with
games at Florida Christian and
Cardinal Gibbons Monday and
Tuesday. The Indians are home for a
district game against Southeast on
Friday night.

VMS sixth-grade students walk the track during their
jog-a-thon Friday.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Students celebrated health
and wellness with a flurry of
physical activity this week at
Venice Middle School.
Sarasota Coca-Cola spon-
sored a program during the
school's health and wellness
week that culminated in
Friday's jog-a-thon, a
fundraiser to boost technolo-
gy in the school.
Student activities focused
on physical fitness and nutri-
tion education throughout


the week. Each day students
would perform a health-relat-
ed skit on the school's morn-
ing news program led by
Sarasota County Teacher of
the Year Peter Boucher. Skits
were on "portion distortion;"
what sleep means for the
body; the importance of
water; and other topics.
Coca-Cola provided each
student with a stepometer.
Students wore the stepome-
ter around their waist all
week, with a goal of running
or walking 10,000 steps a day,
or 50,000 steps for the week.


Venice Middle School sixth-grader Shyann Wagoner wasn't
able to participate in the jog-a-thon. She did come out to
listen to the music and watch her fellow students.

A sea of red-shirted students pounds the pavement at VMS.


For Friday's jog-a-thon,
students went out and col-
lected pledges. Volunteers
were on hand for the hour-
long jog, providing fruit and
water.
Principal Jack Turgeon
estimates the school raised
about $7,000. It was a good


showing for the school's first
jog-a-thon, Turgeon said.
"It's not about the
fundraising. We knew we
weren't going to make a lot off
this. It's about health and
being active. I'm really proud
of our kids for their attitude

He thanked the VMS

Special thanks went to

(and a little walking, too).

STAFF WRITER

For Venice Elementary
staff and students, old hats at
the jog-a-thon, Friday's fund-
.raiser was their biggest event
,of the year. The school raised
'$25,000, according to Joan
,Jacob, who co-chaired the
,effort with Lisa Phifer.
"We're thrilled with its suc-
cess, and the kids love it,"


Jacob said. "They look at this
like Christmas ... our child
woke up at 1, 2, 3 and finally 4
a.m. this morning to get ready
to come and help out with the
jog-a-thon."
Jacob thanked the hun-
dreds of area businesses and
residents who donated prizes
and monetary support.
Students who raised more
than $100 were allowed to
enter the prize room and

select from gifts such as bicy-
cles, skateboards, skim-
boards, DVD players, televi-
sions and lots more.
In total, 776 students par-
ticipated by collecting pledg-
es for several weeks, then
walking or running laps
around a field at the school in
an hour-long jog-a-thon on
Friday, followed by a pizza
and ice cream party.
The school plans to use the
money for a variety of school
improvements, including
swingsets in a covered area
for special needs children (to
help with brain develop-
ment), tables for laptop com-
puters and next year's field
trip endowment, Jacob said.
"We received donations
from many local businesses
and families, as well as from
kids themselves who collect-
ed donations.
"It's a win-win situation,"
Jacob said. "Kids love it.
Parents and businesses are
always happy to help. And the
volunteers are terrific."
Jacob singled out Cindy
Toepfer, PTO president, and
school principal Theresa
Baus for doing a terrific job
supporting the jog-a-thon;
parents Debi Beyer and Mel-
issa Cooley, who helped bring
in prizes and donations to off-
set the costs involved in put-
ting on the jog-a-thon; and
Faith Kona and Cristy Kane
for heading the tally commit-
tee.

Surgery always carries risks, which is why it's important to
choose the hospital where you'll have your operation well
before it takes place. You can choose a facility in the bottom
90% of hospitals nationwide for surgical complications, or one
in the top 10%. This year, Venice Regional Medical Center is
among that top 10% according to HealthGrades-the nation's
leading independent healthcare ratings company. We're also
five-star rated in two of the most common general surgery
procedures.With these facts to prove our surgery department
is an outstanding operation, you can trust your care to us.

Gurl & Girl perform a skit right out of the '50s in their new show, "Say It With Music."


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


They asked and Brian Gurl listened.
Fans wanted the popular Venice
entertainer to build a show around his
considerable musical abilities -
piano and vocal, and he has done just
that, but with a bonus, a "Girl" filled
with mirth, Joey Gurl.
The result is "Say It With Music," a
new show, which takes audiences on a
panoramic tour of the world of music
and music around the world.
Gurl & Girl will perform the show
on Thursday, March 31, at the Church
of the Nazarene as a benefit for the
Venice Symphony. It is being present-
ed by the Friends of the Venice Sym-
phony.
Joey MacDonald Gurl is the Girl in
the Gurl & Girl duo, which has been
regaling audiences across the country
for years. Based in North Carolina, the
couple has a second home in Venice,
which they visit when not on the road
performing at such places as the Tulip
Festival in Holland, Mich., the Festival
of Lights in Niagara Falls, N.Y., a din-
ner theater on Cape Cod or numerous
other venues.
"This is a brand new show," Joey
Gurl said. "This is the first time it is
being performed in Venice."
When it was previewed last year at
the Englewood Performing Arts Cen-
ter for two audiences of more than
900 people, the show was such a hit
that the performers were immediately
booked to come back this year. Again
it was a sell-out.
"Say It With Music" will performed
at this year's Tulip Festival for nine
shows.
But first the Venice Symphony
benefit concert.
Focusing on the piano-playing and
singing talent of Brian, the show will
contain songs ranging from those
penned by Irving Berlin and Elton
John to Boogie Woogie and Broadway
hits.
Gurl has traveled extensively, per-
forming with his wife in many theatri-
cal productions, including "Laughing
With the Legends," which was a trib-


ute to the music of the '50s. He also
has partnered with several other
multi-talented performers.
For this show, in addition to Joey,
Brian will be backed up by Ken
Loomer on drums and Mark Neuen-
schwander on bass.
Together they will perform a variety
of musical styles, including ragtime,
rock 'n' roll, tin pan alley, showtunes,
jazz, semi-classical and pop favorites
such as songs made famous by
George Gershwin, Ray Charles, Lib-
erace, Duke Ellington, Josh Grobin
and others.


Joey Gurl as Lucille Ball in a skit from
the Venice Symphony benefit show
presented by Gurl & Girl, "Say It With
Music."

Joey's skits will impart healthy
dosages of mirth to the review.
She said one of the highlights of the
show will be Brian's tribute to piano
entertainers from the 20th century -
from Scott Joplin to Barry Manilow.
Joey is not the only comic in the
family, however, for Brian has been
known to participate in a skit or three,


and is an excellent mimic. Catch a
glimpse of Fats Waller, Jimmy Durante
and Liberace as Brian endears himself
to the audience.
Joey has put together a salute to
old-time radio, which should garner
some appreciative chuckles and more
from those old enough to remember
the golden age of the box without a
picture radio.
Gurl & Girl the act
The couple began their profession-
al performing career together by
establishing their own 300-seat the-
ater in Mount Snow, Vt. Called
Michael's Playhouse, the theater was
where they performed and produced
their own shows for several years each
summer and fall for tourists. Each
winter, they moved to Boston, where
they put together a new show for the
following summer season. They per-
formed some 120 shows each season.
Together they have performed at
many resorts, hotels and with touring
companies throughout the Northeast
and at such special events as the
Festival of Lights in Niagara Falls, N.Y.
After a few years, they left the com-
fortable playhouse behind and took
their shows on the road full time, per-
forming at venues all over the country,
but especially in Florida, Arizona,
California, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois,
New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts,
Connecticut, Vermont, New Hamp-
shire and the sate where they now re-
side most of the year, North Carolina.
Together they have completed 12
straight years of sold-out perfor-,
mances, earning rave reviews at the
Tulip Festival, the nation's second
largest festival.
They also have become one of the
most popular acts on the Florida
Winter Circuit.

Born and raised in Lebanon, N.H.,
Brian studied classical piano from the
age of 6. When he asked his father why

Container gardening, and new for 2006 the mosaics


den center has hundreds of
choices in every style, color or
size you desire. I'm not fond
of plastic pots, but let me tell
you they have their use, and I
have loads of plastic pots that
are useful and look great, too.
Hanging plants do much bet-
ter in plastic, and the lighter
weight helps when hanging.
But I love anything natural-
looking, and that includes the
cements and terra cottas. An
old florist trick, same as with
candles: Display in odd-num-
bered groups of 1-3-5. Look in
yard sales. One of my favorite
finds was a Grecian-styled
antique-looking cement urn
(it weighs a ton) that Treva
and I also picked up in Venice.


Be creative, look at the maga-
zines for plant selection and
have fun. If you're not sure
what you want, you can
always pick up a pre-planted
container garden at your gar-
den center, too. If you're
planting your own large con-
tainer, remember to add
those bent aluminum soda
cans (six or so) in the bottom.
The cans store excess water,
so if you miss a day of water-
ing in our sweltering summer
heat, the plant roots can tap
the excess water supply col-
lected in the bent cans. Some
people use the little styro-
foam peanuts, but I prefer the
cans. Remember also a hand-
ful of the pelleted timed-


release fertilizer.
People just can't get
enough fountains and water
features these days, either.
What a focal point for your
entryway! There always
seems to be something to do,
something to plant, some-
thing new to try. It's exciting
and fun. Try a tomato plant or
a green pepper this year. See
what magic can happen.

Finding a reliable handyman


5B
SUNDAY
MARCH 26, 2006


Dear Savvy Senior,
How can a senior citizen find
a good dependable handyman
to do some work around the
house? I'm 76 years old and
have had some bad luck lately
with handymen who either
don't show up or don't finish
what they start. Any ideas on
how I can find some dependable
help? Unhandy Senior
Dear Unhandy
Hiring a local handyman
can be a crapshoot. How do
you find someone who will
return your calls, show up on
time, do the job right and fin-
ish it? While there's no sure-
proof method in finding a
reliable handyman, there are
some resources that may
help. Here's what you should
know.
Finding a handyman
Finding a good handyman
(someone who typically deals
with projects that are too
small for large contractors
and too tricky or time con-
suming for the average
homeowner) can be a tough
task. Some places to help you
look include:
Yellow Pages: This is the
most: common, but not nec-. ,
essarily the most reliable
resource people turn to. Look
under "handyman" or under
the specific trade area you
need help with, like carpen-
try, plumbing, painting,
masonry, etc.
Classified ads: Many


newspapers offer classified
ads listing handyman or
trade specific services.
Referrals: A more reliable
way to find a dependable
handyman is to ask your
friends, neighbors, fellow
church members, coworkers,
real estate agents or your
local hardware store for refer-
rals.
ServiceMagic: This is a
great resource that can help
you locate a professional
handyman or contractor in
your area. Just visit ser-
vicemagic.com and fill out a
form listing the work you
want done, and ServiceMagic
will match you to three or
four prescreened profession-
als in your area. This site also
offers online reviews, so you
can read other people's feed-
back to help you make your
selection, and after the job is
done, you can post your own
ratings. You can also get help
over the phone at (800) 474-
1596.
Service companies
Another option to find a
good handyman is to go
through a service company.
There are dozens of compa-
nies around the country that
provide a wide variety of
handymen for hire. You'll
probably pay more going
through a service company
than you would with an inde-
pendent handyman, but ser-
vice companies typically
promise professional workers
who are screened, licensed,
bonded and insured. To find
a handyman business in your
area, here are five large rep-
utable companies to check
into:
Mr. Handyman:
mrhandyman.com (877) 674-
2639.
House Doctors
Handyman Service: house-
doctors.com (888) 468-7336.
Case Handyman
Services: casehandyman.com


(800) 426-9434.
Handyman Connection:
handymanconnection.com
(800) 466-5530.
ServiceMaster: service-
master.com (888) 937-3783.
Things to know
Whether you choose an
independent handyman or
one from a service company,
there are several things you
need to know that can help
insure dependable service.
Experience: Be sure your
handyman has previous
experience doing what you
need done. Also ask for refer-
ences and check them.
License: Do they have an
approved contractor's
license? You can check with
your state licensing board to
be sure. This is especially
important when it comes to
trades like electrical and
plumbing.
Insurance: Make sure
your handyman has at least
general liability insurance to
cover any damages they may
cause while working on your
home.
Pricing: Find out if they
charge by the hour or by the
job, and always get an esti-
mate (on paper and signed)
that lists the materials, costs
and details of the project. To
be sure you're getting a fair
deal get several other written
estimates from different
sources.
Availability: Find out
when they will start and
when they expect to finish.
And, if you discover any
problems or need more
repairs, will they be available
quickly.

DALE MOORE
:ib1 1 I i. t W


I've been scouring antique
shops searching for a wrist-
watch like the one my grand-
mother gave to me when I
was 8 years old. That was a


very special watch; first of all,
because it was the first watch
I ever owned, and second,
because it was a gift from her.
But it was also special for a
number of other reasons.
I don't remember the
brand, but I do remember
that that watch ran much
slower than any I have worn
in recent years. It was a
Christmas gift, and I knew the
next Christmas was a long,
long way off. Now it seems I
barely get the tree down and
the wrappings put away
before the next Christmas (or
birthday, or fourth of July) is
here. When I wore that watch
to school the day seemed to


go on forever. The last year
that I taught school, wearing
my new Wittnauer watch,
each day seemed to simply fly
by.
That watch Grandma gave
me never served as a constant
reminder, a nag actually, of all
the things that needed doing,
the responsibilities to be met.
It never attempted to rule my
day. It created no stress in my
life by constantly reminding
me of a schedule to be kept. It
simply told me the time.
I'm not sure why, or what
there was about that time-
piece 60 years ago, perhaps it

Please see TIME, 12B


VIRGINIA DEUPREE



Each of us is unique, and
Cousin Blanche was no ex-
ception. When my husband
Joe and I were married in
Washington, D.C., in 1940, my
mother-in-law asked us to
look up cousin Blanche,
which we did.
Well, Cousin Blanche was
about 6 feet tall, a very large
lady, but her nice smile belied
her otherwise not so attrac-
tive features.
Sometimes she would
invite us to brunch on Sunday
morning. Now you need to
understand that you never
visited Cousin Blanche with-
out a formal invitation. Of
course she would be wearing
a long, floral dress, proper,
you see, for entertaining
guests. Her father, I think, had
been a secretary to a member
of Congress. The mother was
a friend to the second Mrs.
Wilson. Do you suppose she
had illusions of Southern aris-
tocracy? I dunno. It seems
that cousin Blanche had been
asked to retire from the De-
partment of Agriculture after
they found her typing with no
paper in her typewriter. So
you see, she had to do things


proper.
Well, anyway, breakfast
started out with grapefruit,
then waffles, with maple but-
ter, if you know what maple
butter is. I know I'm leaving
out something, but then
came fried chicken, fordhook
lima beans swimming in but-
ter, and Southern spoon
bread with butter and per-
haps a spoonful of strawberry
preserves.
Now if you've never tried
Southern spoon bread, you
don't know what you've
missed. To me, trying new
foods, is one of the great
things life has too offer. Here
is the recipe in case you get
adventuresome.
Cousin Blanche's
spoon bread
1 pt. milk
2 eggs separated white from
yolks
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. melted margarine or
shortening
1/2 cup corn meal

Heat milk to smoke. Stir
corn meal in milk until it
thickens slightly. Remove
from stove. Add salt, yellows
of eggs, stirring all the time.
Add melted margarine or
shortening. Fold in egg
whites. Bake in 350-375 oven
15-20 minutes. Brown on top
shelf 5 more minutes. Serve
hot with butter.
After a year or two, Cousin
Blanche's very close friend
became ill with cancer. It's
hard to fathom, but she was
actually afraid to call her
friend on the phone, let alone
visit her, for fear she would


get the disease.
Then Blanche herself had
to have cataract surgery. We
who have anticipated cata-
ract surgery can be darn
grateful for modern technolo-
gy. The 1940s, when Blanche
had hers, wasn't so long ago.
For two weeks her head was
kept immobile with two
sandbags, one on each side of
her head. We became her sole
caretakers, and sad to say, her
mind became so confused we
had to put her in a home for
mental patients.
Cousin Blanche and my
husband did share an inter-
esting ancestor. Her grandfa-
ther and his great-grandfa-
ther was James Wright, the
last of the Ohio River steam-
boat captains. He and his
family apparently had a beau-
tiful home on a picturesque
bluff in Madison, Ind., over-
looking the Ohio River. I
heard his children went to a
private school and were not
allowed to speak to the com-
mon children, or so the tale is
told.
In New Orleans he must
have traded with ship cap-
tains from all over the world
because of some of the rare
and beautiful treasures our
family inherited.
Do you think that explains
why she was so hoity toity? I
dunno.

Virginia Deupree is 92,

University, noted for its

a columnist for many years,
and now resides in Venice.

Losing weight naturally


ANGELA BIRDSONG
. OLII!^!SI


Almost everyone in the
entire United States of
America has one thing in
common; we could all lose
some weight. Whether it's 10
pounds or 100, it's our per-
sonal challenge. We all know
yo-yo dieting is bad for us and
some diets are just impossible
to stay on for any reasonable
length of time. How long can
anyone stay sane on a carb
free diet? It seems unnatural.
Enter Japan with a healthy
and safe alternative program.
Long recognized as the
healthiest people on Earth,
the Japanese seem to under-
stand the inner workings of
the body better then the rest
of us. They believe that to lose
weight the body must first be
performing efficiently.
Therefore the first issue the
Japanese address is clearing
out the intestines, liver and

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. Recently, I woke up with
a loss of hearing in my right
ear. I say my doctor who
prescribed an antibiotic. Ten
days have gone by, I am out
of medication, and I still
cannot hear out of my ear.
What should I do?
A. When a person experiences
sudden hearing loss they
logically head for their primary
care physician. Unfortunately,
some doctors do not realize
that this condition is a medical
emergency and instead, take a
"wait and see" attitude. Sudden
hearing loss should always be
treated like any other medical
emergency immediately. You
cannot afford to waste time if
you hope to get our hearing
back. In fact, the best time to
treat sudden hearing loss is
within the first 24 to 48 hours.
Treatment usually involves
medications and procedures
that an Otologist is best
qualified to administer.
Knowing when a hearing loss
is a medical emergency or not
is impossible for a lay person
to determine. If you have a
cold, have a blocked feeling
this would not be an
emergency but if you have a
cold, and have an infection of
your inner ear then this would
be an emergency requiring
immediate attention. Since you
have no way of knowing the
cause of a sudden hearing loss,
it is better to be safe than sorry.
Always contact an Otologist
immediately if you experience
a sudden loss of hearing. The
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. will perform the testing
the Otologist will need and
insure that doctor sees you
promptly. Call 492-4327 at the
first signs of sudden hearing
loss.

colon. Their theory: Without
clean plumbing, the body
cannot operate at its opti-
mum performance level.
The Japanese company
Nikken has a four-step Body
Balance program for weight
loss, with the first step being a
Detoxifying Cleanse. The
Kenzen Cleanse helps elimi-
nate toxins in the liver,
improves nutrient absorption
and protein synthesis. It also
prepares the intestines and
vital organs to detoxify fats.
It's recommended that you
take the Detoxifying Cleanse
at bedtime. It has soothing
and healthy ingredients that
include senna leaf, pepper-
mint leaf, fennel seed and
yucca root.
The second step is their
Kenzen Burn, which should
be taken 30 minutes before
breakfast and lunch. Third, A
Creamy Protein Shake, which
can be consumed in place of
two meals a day for weight
loss or one meal a day for
weight management. Lastly,
Rev Up, which helps speed up
the metabolism and can be
used up to two times a day,
best before 3 p.m. to allow
sleep at night.
Kenzen Burn is a thermo-
genic product. It causes a
slight rise in body tempera-


ture and increases the meta-
bolic rate. When used with a
workout program, Burn is
used more efficiently by the
body to increase fat-burning.
It also assists in appetite con-
trol and craving for sweets
naturally without the use of
ephedra. The Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) has
found that dietary supple-
ments contain ephedra pre-
sent an unreasonable risk of
illness or injury and should
not be consumed.
The most unique product
is Rev Up. It comes in a citrus-
flavored effervescent tablet
that dissolves and fizzes in
water. Designed to give you
energy and help you stay on
track when blood sugar levels
dip thought the day, Rev Up
decreases the urge for snack-
ing. It contains green tea
extracts, iodine, manganese
and chromium, and just hap-
pens to be kosher certified.
The core of the diet plan is
the Kenzen Protein Shake,
which is a meal replacement.
It does contain a sugar substi-
tute called sucralose, which is
an FDA-approved sweetener.
It will help in weight manage-
ment and it does not have the
disadvantages of. aspartame

The '
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
l 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
of chronic disability.

Going where few have gone before, writer gets



to the bottom of things aboard the Westerdam


BY ROGER BUTTON
CORRESPONDENT

What makes the modern
cruise ships operate so
smoothly?
A highly organized team
working 24/7 on board the
typical cruise ship, maintain-
ing every corner in pristine
condition is the answer.
Notice how immaculately
the captain, his officers, the
service team's cooks, waiters
and cleaners are dressed. It
doesn't just happen, but is the
result of good planning, oper-
ational skills and experience
gained over years in the busi-
ness. Traveling on the MS
Westerdam, I toured the op-
erational departments below
decks with Stan Kuppens, the
ship's hotel manager. Kup-
pens oversees the day-to-day
operations of the ship's large
staff, making sure they follow
the plans designed by hotel
planners at Holland America's
headquarters in Seattle.
In areas unseen by most
passengers, I planned to find
out what makes it all tick, and
sail so superbly. Join me
below decks on this first of
two new Vista class-designed
ships. Launched 15 months
earlier, the Westerdam is 951
feet long, has a 105.8 foot
beam, weighs 85,000 gross
tons and has 10 decks above
water and four below.
The Vista dining rooms on
decks 3 and 2 each have their
own complete kitchens, one
above the other, where 108
,.mplQy es.serve 462 guests at.
each of four sittings. Menus
are designed by the Seattle
head-office staff and submit-
ted to the ship several weeks
in advance. Kuppens selects
the menu for a third kitchen
and dining room operating
below decks for the crew. The
room service team, a separate
department, works within the
guest kitchens providing 200
breakfasts daily, increasing to
400 on early shore days.
Entering the first of four of
the working decks, I visited
the infirmary, which serves
more than 150 patients
(mostly crew members) dur-
ing the typical 12-day cruise.
The total complement, 1,800
passengers and 800 crew have
access during the daily
surgery hours. For more seri-
ous illnesses or accidents, the
nurse and ship's physician are
on call 24/7. Guest visits cost
from $70 and upward during
surgery hours, with an addi-
tional $50 for 24/7 after-hours
service, and dispensed drugs
are chargeable.
Head Nurse Karen, a Cal-
ifornian, has for four years
taken four-months-on and
two-months-off contracts.
The physician operates on a
similar contract and can
bring his family. Two addi-
tional nurses and a Philippino
medic treat the crew. A formi-
dable team, in state-of-the-
art facilities, using modern
digitized X-ray facilities, with
a fully equipped intensive
care unit treats major events
from broken joints to serious
heart and coronary issues.
Two additional rooms with
beds, analysis and initial
response equipment make
up the suite. A dentist works


in an adjoining modern surgi-
cal facility.
An arrangement in urgent
situations with a university
hospital in Texas enables the
Holland America team to e-
mail digitized X-rays for clini-
cal analysis, receiving a
response within two hours.
Hospitalized patients become
the responsibility of the shore
agent working with the hospi-
tal, managing arrangements,
handling language problems,
arranging relatives accom-
modation nearby, and en-
sures they are flown home. In
special circumstances, where
the ship is some distance
from a port and immediate
specialized coronary or seri-
ous illness traumatic care is
necessary, the captain can
summon a helicopter.
On A Deck, I passed the
lido buffet preparation sec-
tion, the dry provision stores,
crew quarters, the crew In-
ternet room, gymnasium,
recreation/game room, train-
ing and meeting rooms. Huge
access doors on either side of
the ship provide access for
supplies, which on a heavy
loading day can total 500 pal-
lets, plus passenger luggage.
Kuppens is responsible for
provisions. The Provision
Master, from the Netherlands,
has a store keeper and five
team members, all from In-
donesia. Two weeks in ad-
vance, a computer file averag-
ing 1,750 food items, 450 bev-
erage/sales items and 1,475
-general hotel items of new
and existing on-board sup-
plies required for the next
cruise is agreed upon by the
chef, food and beverage man-
agers and Kuppens. It is e-
mailed to Holland America's
purchasing department in
Seattle, where orders are gen-
erated to contracted suppli-
ers. Supplies are fork-lifted
into 12 large store rooms on B
deck. Each department re-
quests supplies by computer
to the Provision Master, who
arranges for delivery.
The chief butcher, with
two assistants from the Phil-
ippines, operates his shop on
B Deck preparing the orders,
which have to be received
from all kitchens several days
in advance. Beef, veal, lamb,
poultry, seafood and the
french fries/juices are stored
in five freezer rooms. Each
has a thawing section, where
items are placed for collection
a few days later by the butch-
er, who portions them to the
size for specific menu items,
and they are collected by
kitchen area staff.
The bakery operates 24/7,
with crews working 11-hour
shifts preparing many vari-
eties of bread. This new ship
is equipped with a large state-
of-the-art oven, which rotates
constantly throughout the
baking cycle several 20-tray
trolleys of prepared dough,
French breads, etc. Daily pas-
sengers consume 11,000
meals. MS Westerdam has its
own onboard florist main-
taining fresh flower displays
in suites and throughout the
ship. An onboard Print Shop
crew'produces menus, news-
letters and stationery.
C Deck is where the major
recycling service operates in

an efficient, clean room, with-
out even the slightest smell.
The environment has be-
come a priority concern, so it
has been several years since
ships have been allowed to
dump garbage overboard and
release untreated sewerage.
Recycling is a major project
ensuring disposal by the most
sanitary method, with owners
and captains held responsible
for infractions. Recycling be-
gins within each suite, where
stewards are encouraged to
make the initial sorting of
glass, paper, plastic during
daily cleaning. Delivered
directly to the recycling plant,
where employees separate
colored glass and each is
placed in a powerful grinder
reducing it to powder. Plastic
containers are compressed by
.a high pressure vice, and
metal cans are crushed into
small solid bricks. Paper is
compressed in preparation
for recycling.

careful management has
reduced food surplus to a
minimum within the prepa-

How we arrived at 'spitting image'


My friend, Jessica, has a
new baby who is the spitting
image of her parents. Oh, it's
not that she looks much like
either of them. It's just that
sometimes she likes to stick
her tongue out and blow,
making a funny noise while
sending little droplets of sali-
va into space.
And if you want to be tech-


nical about it, this is pretty
much the only situation in
which you should write "spit-
ting image." Te 'reason? Be-
cause the expression, much
to my own surprise when I
stumbled across it in a usage
book, is "spit and image."
"Spitting image," says Bry-
an Garner of Garner's Modern
American Usage, "is actually a
corruption of 'spit and image,'
from the notion of God's
using spit and dust to form
the clay and make Adam in
his image."
Eeww!
But I digress.
As far back as the late
1800s, writers were invoking
Adam in this way, referring to
children as their parents' sali-
va. The old idiom was, "the
very spit of," as in, "The child
is the very spit of his grandfa-
ther," Garner tells us.


Then some genius decided
to couple the spit part with
the word "image." It was an
idiom begging to be mis-
heard, and by the turn of the
century "spit and image"
began to get jumbled up as
"spitting image."
The rest is history.
Search the Los Angeles
Times' online archives back
to 1985 for "spitting image"
and you'll get 186 hits (which
cost $3.95 each to view, by the
way, which is why I can't real-
ly tell you how they were
used). But run the same
search for "spit and image,"
and you'll get a whopping 10
hits.


Garner can explain.
"Though originally an
error, it's so common today-
some 50 times as common in
print as 'spit and image -
that most dictionaries fully
countenance it without re-
cording 'spit and image.'"
So feel free to use "spitting
image" to describe your
baby's after-dinner impres-
sion of Linda Blair in "The
Exorcist." But be aware that,
the rest of the time, the choice
isn't so simple.
Not all babies are spitters.
Growing up in beach com-
munities in Florida, I was

ers you know, the kind who
like to drop their diapers on
the sand then run like the
wind from anyone who tries
to cover them up.
And, as you may have
guessed, there's an idiom-
related caveat that applies
here as well. It is: If you're
looking for a term that really
emphasizes nudity, that term
is"buckn.naed." I
'Butt naked' is an amus-
ing variation that has become
popular, but the original ex-
pression was 'buck naked,' "
writes Bill Walsh, author of
"Lapsing Into A Comma: A
Curmudgeon's Guide to the
Many Things That Can Go
Wrong in Print and How to
Avoid Them."
"The unadorned 'naked'
would seem to be naked
enough for most cases,"
Walsh adds, "but if you must
buck this advice, use a hy-
phen when it's a compound
modifier: A buck-naked man
just ran down the street!'"
Of course, anyone who
used the expression "butt
naked" in a formal situation
would just be hoisting himself
on his own petard, wouldn't


I


he?
Well, no actually. Because
this flowery expression,
which means "ruined by one's
own scheming against oth-
ers," is actually a perversion
of the line from "Hamlet,"
"hoist with his own petar,"
Garner explains. A petar, it
turns out, was a sort of
ancient explosive used in bat-
tie to level gates and walls.
Don't feel bad if you didn't
know that. "In modem jour-
nalistic sources, 'petard' out-
numbers 'petar' by a 66-to-1
margin," Garner writes. "So
almost every writer who uses
the phrase updates Shake-
speare by using 'petard.'"
And the topper: My spell-
checker doesn't recognize the
word "petar." It suggests I use
"petard."
Of course, it's easy to
understand why someone
would get so confused. After
all, the two words are so simi-
lar in sound and appearance,
they're the spitting image of
each other.

The mysterio


SLIM RANDLES

The newspapers began
disappearing about two
weeks ago. Disappearing like
smoke in a high wind. The
paper boy swore he delivered
all of them, same as usual.
Same as his older brother
had before him. Said he was
able to "porch" quite a few.

But the papers kept disap-
pearing, and it wasn't long
before gab sessions were tak-
ing place in the beauty par-
lors and barber shpps and the
coffee shops regarding our
local crime spree.
Theft hasn't really been a
problem here, you see. Usual-
ly something that starts out
looking like theft turns out to
be something pretty innocent
that just happened- to be
complicated by a lack of com-
munication.
Oh, we're not completely
free of theft, of course. Like
last summer, when someone
took Bert's new sprinkler off
his hose in broad daylight in
the front yard. For several
days, Bert drove around look-
ing at the patterns our sprin-
klers had, trying to locate his

disappearing

own. It was no use. He finally
reported to us down at the
Mule Barn truck stop's philos-
ophy counter and world
dilemma think tank that this
sticky-fingered act of legerde-
main was stacking up to be
the work of a grab-it-and-git
drive-by bandit from out of
town.
That's why, when the papers
began disappearing from our
front lawns and even from the
sanctity of our front porches,
we knew something had to be
done. Several volunteers from
the Mule Barn agreed to rise
early and watch to see if their
papers vanished and who didit.
This Neighborhood Watch
exercise worked. Blackie was
caught in the act and his
crime spree ended before
very many papers had van-


newspapers

ished.
Then Blackie was taken
home and his owner was
informed that this was one
Labrador retriever who had
retrieved his last paper with-.
out paying for a subscription.
Piles of newspapers were
found in Blackie's house and
behind the swing set.
The community was given
a guarantee that on delivery
mornings, Blackie would re-
main on the chain until
everyone had their paper and
coffee.
Crime cannot be allowed
to continue. Especially when
everyone needs to read the
paper to see how much the
editor dared to print.

Seeking members


Tin Can Sailors
The Tin Can Sailors Squad-
ron was started four months
ago with three men, and has
now grown to include 18, rep-
resenting service in World
War II, Korea and Vietnam.
The group is looking for more
sailors to meet at 11 a.m. the
third Wednesday of each
month at the American
Legion, 145 E. Venice Ave. for
lunch, stories, pictures and
tales of interest about DD or
DE war ships. To learn more,
call Bob Schwartz at 497-1050
or Coert Voorhees at at the
legion at 485-4748.
Golden Pelican Squadron
To quote Jug Varner, CO of
the Golden Pelican Squadron,
"Like the Marine Corps, we
are looking for a few good
men. Except in our case, they
can be much older."
The squadron is one of
many across the nation (and
a few overseas) afilliated with
the National Aviation Found-
ation. Most members are for-


mer Navy, Marine and Coast
Guard pilots and crewmen,
but it is open to anyone inter-
ested in sea services and avia-
tion.
"For many years the mem-
bership has been those with
World War, Korean and
Vietnam experiences. And I
am one who survived all
three," Varner said. "But
members from that era are in
a declining senior age group.
To keep these squadrons
afloat, we need to recruit
some younger folks to carry
on. 'Younger' in this case may
be defined as 40s, 50s, 60s or
70s."
Except for summer recess
during June-August, the
Golden Pelican Squadron
holds luncheon meetings
11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., every
fourth Tuesday, at the Sara-
sotaYacht Club, 1100 Ringling
Blvd.

TIME from Page 5B


was the fact that it ran so slow,
but the future truly seemed
an eternity away. I remember
thinking that the year 2000
was a Buck Rogers fantasy,
one I sometimes wondered if
I would ever live to see. And
people I knew, who had lived
65 or 70, years were incredibly
ancient.
Now, here it is 2006 and I
am nearing that 70 mark and
do not feel ancient at all
(though I suspect to some 8-
year-olds I must appear that
way).
My new watch constantly
reminds me of the value of
time. With the old watch it
was fine to fritter away the
hours playing, reading a good
book, or just watching clouds


float by. But this watch
reminds me that time is pass-
ing rapidly and that once a
minute, an hour or a day is
gone, there is no way to get it
back or replace it. What once
seemed an eternity away now
seems only to be closer to
eternity.
So I search for that first
watch, but I doubt that I'm
going to find it. And if I did, I
suspect someone will have
changed the springs and
gears and it will no longer run
as slowly, as I remember. I
:suppose instead of wasting
time searching for the past, it
is far better to make the most
of what time I have left.
And that is my two cents
worth...

the large, vista series, ships.
Uniform orders were also be-
ing made up for other Hol-
land America ships crew. Of-
ficers require five sets of uni-
forms, blue for cold areas,
khaki, formal, white long-
sleeve and short-sleeve. Din-
ing room stewards have
short-sleeve and long-sleeve
jackets, a formal jacket, lido
and special theme uniforms.
New crew reports to the tailor
upon boarding for measur-
ing, and uniforms are made
within hours.
Changing weather condi-
tions, as the ship cruises
around the globe, causes
faster deterioration requiring
constant renovation of the
numerous varnished wood
surfaces. Rarely, if ever, will
passengers see a damaged
table or broken chair. Cur-
tains hang straight and move
easily. Tiles on the floor, bath-
room walls and even in the
ceiling are maintained in pris-
tine condition. The chief car-
penter has an eight-man
team, including a locksmith,
repairing and maintaining all
woodwork from balustrades
to chairs, tables and the deck-
ing. The locksmith manages
service doors and locks, while
tile setters replace broken
tiles. Alongside the carpentry


crew, the Chief Upholsterer
and his two man team speed-
ily repair curtains and chairs.
Their quarters are opposite
the efficient, odorless sanita-
tion plant. The water and fuel
tanks are located on D Deck.
The average life of a
Holland America cruise ship
is 20 years. These very high
standards are respected with-
in the industry to such a
degree that there is always a
waiting list of companies
ready to bid on acquiring the
retiring vessel to relocate it
into another fleet Kuppens
said.
Through their dedication
in operating their city below
decks, crew members insure
every passenger on MS
Westerdam never goes hun-
gry, enjoys the creature com-
forts of sleeping in the best
beds and dining at the finest
tables, in a pristine environ-
ment and never is locked out
of his cabin.


EDITORS NOTE: Behind-the-
scenes tours, such as the one
described by Button, are not the
norm on any cruise line for a vari-
' ety of reasons, including safety of
the tour-goer and insurance rules.
Holland America and other lines
occasionally allow writers behind
the scenes so that they might
share the experience with others.

Doggone happy day for Humane


Society's longest canine resident


BY DEBORAH ROBBINS MILLMAN
GUEST WRITER

Tails were wagging and
tears were flowing Thursday
when Missy, the Humane
Society of Sarasota County's
longest canine resident, went
home with her new family.
Missy, a 3-year-old, black
and white Labrador retriever
mix, had been at the open
admission shelter since Sep-
tember 2004.
The well-loved mutt was
taken to offsite events, fea-
tured in advertisements and
was spotlighted as a "Crane's
Critter" on the Oldies 108
morning show.
As an open-admission
shelter, we never stop accept-
ing abandoned pets, even
when we are full. That means
we have to work extra hard to
find homes for all of our cher-
ished charges to make room
for a constant stream of new
ones.
Staff and volunteers never
gave up hope that Missy
would one day find her forev-
er home and they worked
very hard to promote adop-
tions and keep cage space
available for her while Missy


waited for her perfect peo-
ple. All that effort made the
day even more joyful for all
of us.
Missy was adopted by
Samantha Houghton and Ro-
ger Richards of Pinellas Park,
after Houghton heard about
Missy's plight on Oldies 108 as
she traveled to her job in
Bradenton.
Cheering staff and volun-
teers sent Missy on her way
with a treasure trove of good-
ies they bought as parting
gifts, including a new leash
and obedience classes at
HSSC.
As thrilled as we are, there
is a cat that has been here
even longer than Missy. Ju-
dith, a black cat brought to
the shelter as a newborn just
one week before Missy ar-
rived, is still waiting for a
home. We are hoping we will
soon have a happy ending for
her, too.
To adopt Judith or any one
of the shelter's more than 200
pets, visit HSSC at 2331 15th
St., Sarasota or call 955-4131.
You may also see photos of
HSSC's shelter pets or make
