'Dirty Bridge' will finally be painted


After more than 14 months of debate, the city and
county reach final agreements on a pair of major
proposals during a joint meeting.


BY JJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Bill Willson has no prob-
lem admitting he was just a
rookie Venice City Council
member during last year's
joint meeting with county
commissioners.
But looking at Tuesday's
agenda, Willson couldn't help
but wonder why some of the


items are identical to issues
discussed and voted upon 14
months ago and probably
at joint meetings before that.
"I don't want to be sitting
here next year agreeing to
agree that we agree on some-
thing we agreed on the year
before that," Willson said,
drawing a slight chuckle from
council and commission
members.


Willson got his wish as
both government agencies
approved the stucco-like
painting of Venice Avenue
Bridge and a joint planning
agreement on redevelopment
of the U.S. 41 Bypass corridor.
City council and Sarasota
County commissioners
agreed to the concepts a year
ago, and then spent the past
14 months disagreeing and
miscommunicating on how
they would be carried out.
Add that to plenty of fin-
ger-pointing this past year
about which agency has
caused the most growth -


the city with an estimated
7,000 North Venice homes or
the county with 12,000 South
Venice and River Road homes
- and Tuesday's meeting was
needed to clear the air.
Some said the media has
sensationalized conflicts,
though other elected officials
said better communication
really is needed.
Commissioner Shannon
Staub, who represents the
Venice area, said too much
communication is done
through the newspaper. She

Venice City Council and Sarasota County Commission met for a
joint meeting Tuesday at Venice Community Center to discuss
interagency issues like transportation, annexation policies and
strained relationships. Pictured, from left to right, are council

A potential annexation of
Caspersen Beach by the city
has been delayed further as
Sarasota County officials try
liT work through their con-
cerns.
The basic issue, which no
one seems to doubt, is that
die beach bathroom facilities
need upgrading and sewer
and water lines need to be
run to the park.
The county has even
agreed to pay for it.
Other than that, the county
commissioners have many
issues that they say need
resolving before agreeing to
any annexation.
During a joint meeting
with city council Thursday
the commissioners agreed,
after a lengthy discussion that
got sidetracked several times,
to direct the county staff to
come up with an analysis of


the pros and cons of the
annexation.
If the city were to take con-
trol of Caspersen Beach there
has been an.ongoing concern
that the city rules for parks
would automatically apply.
Thereis-also-a worry the
city will take advantage of the
annexation and attempt to
expand to South Venice.
Making sense
From the perspective of
the city council, the annexa-
tion makes sense.
The move would not
change anything at the park
as it would remain a county-
run park.
It is also viewed as neces-
sary to provide a higher level
of safety there, sense Sarasota
County sheriff's deputies
have a long way to go to
respond to any problems and
the sheriff's office has been

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
GLENN HENRY


Drip, drip, drip.
The water dripping out of a
faucet is a precious and limit-
ed commodity, so the watch-
word for the immediate fu-
ture is conservation.
While the water supply
remains adequate, the recent
dry spell means conserving
water should be a priority for
everyone, officials with the
Peace River/Manasota Re-
gionalWater SupplyAuthority
said Wednesday.
Sam Stone, the authority's
environmental affairs coordi-
nator, said he did not want
people to panic, just con-
serve.
"It is dry. If people start
conserving water, we'll be in
good shape," Stone said.
"Making that lifestyle change
will be helpful as we continue
into the heart of the dry sea-
son."
A dripping faucet can
waste up to 2,700 gallons of
water per year, which also will
add to the sewer charge on


your utility bill.
March rainfall was 77 per-
cent below normal in some
places, with only 0.7 inches
filling the rain gauges.
While seven of the last 13
months have had above-aver-
age rainfall, the area is 3.6
inches below normal since
January.
Add to that a record de-
mand of 18.2 million gallons
per day of water at the facility
in March, and the need to
conserve becomes clear,
Stone said.
Overall usage is up 10 per-
cent from 2005.
As dire as those numbers
sound, there was good news.
The water authority cur-
rently has a 215-day supply of
water.
"We are still in pretty good
shape," Stone said.
The reservoir is currently at
96 percent of capacity, and
the underground storage
wells are 45 percent of capac-
ity, up 10 percent from 2005.
The water authority is still

CONSERVATION TIPS
Conservation indoors:
* Never put water down the
drain when there may be
another use for it, such as
watering plants or cleaning.
* Verify that your home is leak
free. Many homes can have
hidden leaks. To check, read
your water meter before and
after a one-hour period when
no water is being used. If the
meter does not read exactly
the same, there is a leak.
* Repair any leaky faucets. A
dripping faucet can waste up
to 2,700 gallons of water per
year, which will also add to
the sewer charge on your utili-
ty bill.
* Check for toilet tank leaks by
adding a few drops of food
coloring to the tank. If the toi-
let is leaking, color will appear
in the water in the bowl with-
in 30 minutes. Flush when the
test is completed to prevent
staining the tank.

DCA issues order


in LaMorte case


STAFF REPORT


The Second District Court
of Appeal in Lakeland has
directed Florida's attorney
general's office to submit a
written explanation of why
the state's sexual abuse case
against former Venice High
School teacher and coach
James LaMorte Sr. is not
barred by the statute of limi-
tations.
LaMorte, 64, a 30-year
teaching veteran, resigned
Feb. 16, 2005, amid allega-
tions he had sex with his male
students 25 years ago. He
faces one charge of sexual
assault and battery on a vic-
tim over 12 years old by a per-
son in custodial authority.
The charge carries a prison
term of up to 15 years.
Lamorte has pleaded not
guilty and is free on a
$100,000 bond. His trial is
scheduled to begin Monday.
The statute of limitations
in a criminal case is the time

period within which the state
must begin a prosecution.
The passage of 25 years
would preclude the prosecu-
tion of most crimes. Here, the
state has been successful in
arguing that LaMorte's case
falls under Florida Statute
715.15(b), which states that if
the limitations period has
expired, a prosecution may
nevertheless be commenced
for: "Any offense based upon
misconduct in office by a
public officer or employee at
any time when the defendant
is in public office or employ-
ment, within two years from
the time he or she leaves pub-
lic office or employment.... "
LaMorte's attorneys have
tried several times to get the
charges dismissed, arguing
the statute wasn't intended to
apply to teachers. They ap-
pealed trial court orders
denying their motions.

tight credit, high interest
rates and declining econom-
ic activity took their toll on
sales volume in 1974. The
annual volume index re-
treated to 101 in 1974 from
104 the previous year.
While the overall decline
was modest, the department
says activity from month-
to-month was somewhat
volatile, reflecting changes in
mortgage market conditions
and seasonality in the existing
home sales market.


Tropical Bob likes metal
roofs. They look very
"Florida."
When T.B. saw one the
other day, topped with a
cupola, an idea formed.
What if two roofs were
sandwiched an insulated
roof at the bottom, topped
by a dark metal roof tapering
from base to peak? A cupola
at roof peak would cover an
opening containing a multi-
bladed fan.
During daylight hours,
heat would rise inside the
sandwich, accelerating as the
passage narrowed until the
hot rush of air spun the fan
and escaped containment.
Result? The house would
stay cooler and this "horizon-

Ducking and plucking at the festival


Feds step into VHA debate


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


SUN FILE PHOTO
The 14th annual Venice Sharks Tooth Festival gets under way today (Friday) at 4 p.m. on
airport property east of Harbor Drive across from Sharky's on the Pier. A signature
fundraiser for the Sarasota Special Athlete Boosters, the festival also offers other local
charities and service organizations the chance to earn money for their causes. Among
them, the Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club will be holding its second annual Duck Pluck, with
prizes awarded every hour of the festival. Prizes include golf packages, dinner packages,
gift certificates, saving bonds, and the grand prize: a five-day cruise for two. Proceeds
benefit the Rotary Futures Program at Venice High School. The festival continues
Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.


A meeting will be held
within the next month to
address problems at Venice
Housing Authority.
That was the word from
City Manager Marty Black,
who met with officials from
the Miami Field Office of the
U.S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development.
Venice City Council recent-
ly sent a letter to the Miami
HUD office calling for a re-
view of the $11.3 million re-
development project VHA is
attempting to win tax-credit
financing for. Residents, city
council and community
members have questioned
the project's quality, the fees
being charged and a lack of
public input.
A new concern is whether
budget problems may cause
VHA to cancel its wind and
hail insurance policy on the 50
apartment units. Grove Ter-
race Apartment complex is
South County's only public
housing complex.
"HUD agreed to set up a
meeting on how to right the
ship," Black said after his
hour-long session. The city
manager expects the meeting
to happen within the next
four weeks.
No insurance
VHA board members will
discuss at their next meeting
whether to renew their policy.
It expired April 1, but they
have a 30-day grace period.
Board members said their
premiums have more than
doubled. Their carrier wants
to charge $140,000 with a
deductible of $100,000 for
each of the five buildings.
That premium amount is
more than VHA's annual
operating budget.
"(The insurance agent)
asked me if I'd fallen off the
chair." VHA commissioner


George Barr said. "It's just out
of the blue. I couldn't believe
it."
HUD officials told the city
manager this is not a new
problem. Housing authorities
across the country are can-
celing building insurance
policies because the premi-
ums are too high.
New VHA chairman Sam
Prost emphasized the board
has not reached a decision.
However, it may not make
sense to pay $140,000 to in-
sure buildings that could be
demolished this fall.
"We haven't decided yet,"
Prost said. "We'll discuss that
at the next meeting."
Changing structures
The city manager is advo-
cating the idea of consolidat-
ing VHA so it becomes part
of a regional housing author-
ity. Black believes part of the
problems arising out of VHA's
project is because it lacks the
expertise and weight a larger
organization like the Tampa
Housing Authority carries.
An example of that is what
the city, and many commun-
ity members, consider to be
excessive developer fees be-
ing charged to VHA. Black
was assured by HUD officials
that federal guidelines will
force those amounts being
paid to Picerne Development
to be reduced, the city man-
ager said.
Another idea is for the city
to assume responsibility for
day-to-day operations of
VHA, much as the city does
with the Venice Municipal
Airport. That idea would re-
quire action by city council,
which only has the power
to appoint VHA board mem-
bers.
Another idea
Council member John
Moore agrees that the current
redevelopment deal "just
doesn't look right," but he's


not certain city management
of Grove Terrace is the answer.
"While government may
mean well, it doesn't always
get the job done. It doesn't
always have all the answers,"
Moore said.
At Tuesday night's public
workshop, one of the most
popular "answers" came from
Grove Terrace neighbor and
rental property owner Don
O'Connell. He has long advo-
cated for more blue-collar
housing within city limits.
The retired judge told VHA
it should take its $11.3 million
- if it wins the money and
rehabilitate the 42 townhouse
units on the property's north
side and build the 72 new
apartment units on the south
side of Grove Terrace's prop-
erty.
Picerne Development cur-
rently plans to demolish the
entire complex, build 72 units
on the north side and try for
money to build another 72
units in 2007 on the south
side for a total of 144
low-income and affordable
units.
The two-phase approach
is flawed because VHA will
be competing against Sara-
sota Housing Authority next
year and will probably lose,
O'Connell said.
O'Connell also told VHA it
needs an independent con-
sultant, possibly paid for by a
community foundation grant,
because he accused Picerne
Development of pushing a
"shoddy product" in order to
make a profit.
"This board doesn't have
the expertise," O'Connell said.
"The problem with Picerne is
a conflict of interest. Their
goal is to build this ,and get
out of town. ... What has
come here before us is not a
quality product."

Luncheon salutes local health group volunteers


BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

More than 100 members
and supporters of local health
initiative groups gathered
Wednesday to celebrate Com-
munity Health Improvement
Partnerships in Sarasota and
Charlotte counties.
The luncheon, held at the
Venetian Golf & River Club in
Venice, recognized the ac-
complishments of CHIP
Community Health Action
Teams from North Port and
Englewood and the joint
Laurel/ Osprey /Venice /
Nokomis group. Chairs of the
different CHATs also present-
ed awards to members who
were instrumental in accom-
plishing CHAT goals.
Connie Ellis, co-chairwom-
an of North Port's CHAT
group, outlined several of the
groups recent accomplish-
ments, including the North
Port Health Directory, the
group's Web log, or blog, and
an upcoming health lecture
series.
"Once a month, beginning
May 10, we'll be holding lec-
tures at City Hall," Ellis said.
"Dr. Lee Gross will be our
first speaker on nutrition."
Ellis also presented awards
to former North Port CHAT
co-chairs Jack Donoghue,
administrative, director of the
North Port Health Park, and
City Commissioner Vanessa
Carusone.
"I'm a relatively new-
comer," said Ellis, who also
manages the Women's Re-
source Center in North Port.
"But they have been here a


long time. Vanessa was the
first co-chair of CHAT and
has been a life-line to the
city commission and local
government, and she always
reminds us to remember the
youth.
"Jack has been involved
since the beginning," Ellis
continued. "He was co-chair
with Vanessa in 2003 and did
everything he could to get
(North Port CHAT) going."
Collaboration
DARE Officer W. Triplett,
chair of North Port CHAT's
substance abuse subcommit-
tee, and Gail Quinn, media
subcommittee chair, were
also thanked for their work.
Ellis was recognized with
an award presented by Pat
Black, chair of the Englewood
CHAT.
"Connie, along with Kathy
Roach, are the developers of
'traveling CHAT,' said Black.
"We take packets to civic
groups and mobile home
parks. This brings information
to the. community."
Black highlighted plans
for a "green" environmental
health and human services
building that is being devel-
oped for Englewood. She also
outlined some of the chal-
lenges of working in a com-
munity split between Char-
lotte and Sarasota counties.
"Englewood is in a bi-
county area," said Black. "We
work with agencies who say,
'We can't do that,' or cross
into other counties. But we're
dedicated to work collabora-
tively to get organizations to
cross county lines."


Co-chairwoman of the North Port CHAT Connie Ellis recognizes North Port City Commissioner Vanessa Carusone Wednesday for
her dedicated service to the North Port CHAT.


Catalyst
Recently, the Englewood
CHAT group persuaded Sara-
sota County Area Transit to
commit to stops at all of the
CHAT downtown providers.
"It shows we have some
power and can be a real
catalyst in the community,"
Black said.


Maggie Kennedy and Barb-
ara Kochmit, co-chairs of the
LOVN CHAT group, echoed
Black's idea that CHAT groups
can make a difference.
"CHAT doesn't mean we
just sit around and talk,"
Kochmit said.
Kennedy outlined one of
the LOVN CHAT's recent


accomplishments.
"Our diabetes care team
provides in-home clinical
assessment for diabetics,"
she said. "We provide social
support and education. We
have 65 patients involved."
Kochmit announced the
LOVN CHAT will also be
opening two new CHIP in-


formation centers Friday at
the Venice and Jacaranda
public libraries.
Both the Englewood and
LOVN CHATs also honored
volunteers who have aided
in meeting their goals.

Caspersen Beach


remains open


STAFF REPORT

Caspersen Beach in Venice
remains open via South Har-
bor Drive as work continues
on the Caspersen Beach
Bridge.
The bridge was temporar-
ily closed to all vehicular and
pedestrian traffic on March
27. It is expected to be closed
for up to five months while a
new bridge is being built.
Recreational amenities on
the spoil island east of Cas-
persen Beach including
the playground, the pavilion,
the kayak launch and the
pedestrian bridge to Venetian
Waterway Park will not be
available during the con-
struction project because the
pedestrian bridge does not
provide access for emergency
vehicles.
However, Sarasota County
officials emphasize that
access to Caspersen Beach via
South Harbor Drive is not
affected by the bridge con-
struction, and that 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 prox-
imity of construction equip-
ment and materials to the
park amenities, county offi-
cials decided to close the
bridge completely during
construction instead of keep-
ing one lane open.
The short-span Caspersen
Beach Bridge is more than 50
years old, and is at the end
of its design life. The new
bridge.is designed to provide
safe and reliable access to the
island for 75 years.
Under the $1.36 million
construction project, the
bridge will be extended slight-
ly to 33 feet, and widened to
accommodate a sidewalk on
the south side. The project
also includes aesthetic im-
provements and the replace-
ment of seawalls under the
bridge. The existing vertical
navigational clearance for
boats vill not be changed.
The Sarasota County Board
of Commissioners awarded
the construction contract
Feb. 7 to Lucas Marine Con-
struction Inc. of Stuart, the
lowest of four bidders.
Funding is provided by
the infrastructure surtax (1-
cent sales tax) and gasoline
taxes.

Officials demand partnership



on proposed stadium


City and county officials are lobbying
for $15 million from the state for baseball
facilities. Their conceptual plans include
the fairgrounds, but fair officials haven't been


consulted about them.

BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Sarasota County Fair offi-
cials are demanding they
either be included as equal
partners in ambitious city
and county plans that in-
clude the Fruitville Road site,
or that the two local govern-
ments stop suggesting it can
be utilized for a new spring
training baseball facility.
On April 1, Fair Associa-
tion President Rory Martin
fired off a three-paragraph
letter to County Commission
Chair David Mills that de-
scribes how fair directors
have been excluded from
widely reported city and
county recreation plans that
include a stadium.
"I am writing to express
my concern that the future of
the Sarasota County Fair is
being discussed and poten-
tially impacted by county
staff without the input and
participation of the Fair As-
sociation," Martin stated. He
referenced several recent
incidents.
One of them was a March
1 meeting with City Manager
Mike McNees and County
Administrator Jim Ley at which
Martin was shown a "North

reforms.
Extended an agreement
with Macy's retail store to
offer students a chance to
learn about retail operations.
Approved field trips for
Sarasota High School for its
band trip to Atlanta, a science
fair in Indianapolis, and a
speech and debate tourna-
ment in Chicago.
Approved two student
expulsions for the remainder
of the academic year.
Contracts: Awarded con-
tracts for concrete services
from Gordon J. Hornikel Con-


Enhancements" plan that was
then shared with state law-
makers in Tallahassee.
"This plan was developed
without the Fair Association's
knowledge or input," Martin
stated in his letter to Mills,
"and was unacceptable to
the Fair Association without
further definition."
It was prepared by profes-
sional planners.
No input
Three city commissioners
and one county commis-
sioner were reportedly in
Tallahassee last week lobby-
ing for $15 million to build a
new spring training baseball
facility, theoretically at the
fairgrounds if Fair Association
directors agree.
Martin said all the plan-
ning and lobbying for state
money has taken place
"without the Fair Associa-
tion's input or participation,"
and concluded the "county's
actions to date have begun
to interfere with the Fair
Association's ongoing and
future business relation-
ships."
Last month, the collabora-
tion involving McNees and
Ley raised eyebrows when
their plans were shared with
city and county commission-


create, L&L Site Services, and
Superior Concrete Construc-
tion not to exceed $400,1000,
for cleaning of kitchen ex-
lhaust duct systems from All

not to exceed $40,000, and
carpentry services from
O'Dell, Hall and Associates

Norstar Construction as a
secondary vendor not to ex-
ceed $500,000.

Mills, a Fair Association
director, has expressed con-
cern that if the fairgrounds
are moved to make room for
a baseball facility, hotel, con-
ference center or any other
such project, the annual
county fair could become a
marginal event.

John Travolta and his wife, Kelly Preston, were featured
at a small reception in the Governor's Mansion to
celebrate Film Florida earlier this week. Shown are State
Rep. Nancy Detert, R-Venice; Travolta; Rep. Eleanor
Sobel; and Gov. Jeb Bush. Detert and the Legislature
are working on $25 million in appropriations incentives
to encourage movie makers not only to film in Florida,
but to move their entire operation here. Florida has
three film schools and numerous production areas
available and would welcome the industry as a good
revenue producer, paying high wages while being fun
for tourists to watch.

TIPS

Never use the toilet as a trash can. Dispose of tissues, insects and other such waste in the trash.
Install a displacement device, such as a bag or bottle filled with water, to cut down on the amount
needed per flush. Consider purchasing low-volume toilets that use less than half the water of older
models.
Take shorter showers and replace showerheads with low-flow units. When bathing, fill the tub only
one-third to one-half full.
Operate dishwashers and clothes washers only when they are fully loaded.

Conservation outdoors:
Don't over-water your lawn. As a general rule, lawns only need watering every five to seven days in
the summer and every 10 to 14 days in the winter.
Water lawns in the early morning hours, when temperatures and wind speeds are lowest. This
reduces loss from evaporation.
Don't water your street, driveway or sidewalk. Position your sprinklers so water lands on plants and
shrubs, not paved areas.
Mulch to retain moisture in the soil. Mulching also helps to control weeds that compete with plants
for water.
Don't hose down your driveway or sidewalk. Use a broom to clean leaves and other debris.
Connect a shut-off nozzle to your hose so water flows only when needed. When finished, turn it off at
the faucet to avoid leaks.
If you have a swimming pool, consider a new water-saving pool filter. A single back-flushing with a
traditional filter uses from 180 to 250 gallons or more of water.

beautiful. We need to consid-
er all alternatives to try to pre-
serve it and protect it," Moore
said.
He said having the city
annex the park would allow
Venice police officers access
to the beach, which could
curb any crime there.
Keeping the park a county-
run facility also makes sense,


Moore said, since it is becom-
ing more and more popular it
would be wrong to change it.
Sleight of hand
Commission Chair David
Mills said he sees no down-
side to annexation.
"I've heard a lot of con-
cerns about what if, but the
most important issue is to get
the sewer and water down
there," Mills said.
Council member Rick Tacy
said the idea for annexation
has been around since 2001.
"Not changing the rules
always got lost in the inter-
pretation," Tacy said.


At this point in the discus-
sion, the idea of the larger
side of annexation by the city
became involved in a discus-
sion of which entity would
maintain Harbor Drive,
which leads to the beach.
"I believe the annexations
have been done with a sleight
of hand," County Com-
missioner Nora Patterson
said.
Patterson went on to say
she believed the annexation
of land while the county
retains the maintenance of
roads is unfair to the county
and the residents. She argues
that the annexation means


the portion of tax money to
the city increases but not to
the benefit of the people who
are annexed.
Commissioner Shannon
Staub agreed saying that she
believed the beach and the
roads are intertwined.
"I want to be sure there is
some semblance of equity,"
Staub said. "If there is an
annexation, the city takes the
road back."
Separate issues
After a lengthy exchange, it
was agreed by the two boards
that an analysis should be
developed within six months


to identify the roads that are
in dispute and to offer
options to examine the main-
tenance issues. 1
Commissioner Paul Mer-
cier agreed with Mills that the
beach and the road mainte-
nance are two separate
issues.
"It's disturbing to me that
an issue like this make us look
bad," Mercier said. "Let's get
this thing fixed."
Council member Fred
Hammett questioned wheth-
er Patterson's comments were
somehow a way to leverage
the Caspersen annexation

"Let's have a celebration

joked following the vote.
Redeveloping the bypass
State officials continue to
delay the widening of U.S. 41
Bypass and have yet to allo-
cate any money toward right-
of-way acquisition.
Sarasota County and Ven-
ice, however, are moving for-
ward with creating a major
redevelopment plan that en-
compasses the entire U.S. 41
Bypass corridor.
The redevelopment area
would start in city limits,
where 41 splits into the by-
pass and business routes, and
extend south to Shamrock
Boulevard and incorporate
what's commonly called the
"industrial district" along


Seaboard Avenue and the
Intracoastal Waterway.
The city and county
approved spending up to
$120,000, split equally, to hire
a consultant to evaluate the
area. Strategic Planning Man-
ager Mary Holcombe said the
joint agreement allows Venice
to put the contract out to bid
and select a consultant within
60 days.
A timeline to complete the
study has not been presented.
Its findings will be the back-
bone in creating what could
qualify as a Community
Redevelopment Area.
In addition to these two
agreements, county commis-
sion and city council mem-
bers walked away from the
meeting with a handful of


other ideas that could lead to
agreements.
Officials with both sides
were happy with the result,
and except for some heated
debate over who got stuck
with the bill concerning
enclave annexation, most felt
that Tuesday was a success
with no hurt feelings.
"We got tangled up in our
underwear for a little bit, but
we got through it," city coun-
cil member John Simmonds
said.
"We do have a cordial rela-
tionship. ... One thing that
always helps cocktails and
goodies."

Grant's bill shuts loophole in state law


R ep. Michael Grant, R-Port Charlotte, is
championing a bill in the state Legis-
lature that no one will likely oppose.
The local lawmaker has stepped up to
fight for changing a state law that allows peo-
ple to lie to state law officers without being
punished. The problem is a serious loophole
in the language of law that requires witnesses
to tell the truth when questioned in sexual
predator cases.
The bill's language should have called for
punishment for people who mislead or lie in
an investigation involving sexual offenders.
Perhaps the most disturbing example of
why changing this law is so important sur-
faced during the investigation into the death


of 12-year-old Jessica Lunsford.
If you remember, the young Florida girl
was kidnapped and murdered by a man stay-
ing in a small mobile home just yards away
from her house. The search for her went on
for several days before her body was found.
During the search and original investiga-
tion, sheriff's deputies and others questioned
residents of that mobile home where she was
held captive. They repeatedly told officials
they had no knowledge of her.
Later, evidence was uncovered that prov-
ed Jessica was in that mobile home, alive, for
several days before being murdered and
buried a short distance away. Three times
local law officers visited that home and were


turned away told no one knew anything
about her.
The residents of that mobile home were
never prosecuted for lying to law enforce-
ment officers. That is because, while it is a
crime to lie to federal officers about such
crimes, the law in Florida does not make it a
criminal act to lie to state or local officers
investigating sexual offenses.
Grant plans to change that.
The bill, called the False Witness Act, is
being supported by Attorney General Charlie
Crist. It has gotten plenty of attention even
landing Grant an appearance on the Bill
O'Reilly show on Fox TV
For Grant, the bill is merely a common-


sense response to a mistake that was made.
"We are not the only state that has this
problem," he said. "Everyone just assumes if
you lie during an investigation that it is a
crime."
But, he said, while the federal authorities
have such a law, it fell through the cracks in
Florida.
Grant's bill would punish anyone giving
false witness in a felony sexual offender
investigation with up to year in jail, a $1,000
fine or both.
Grant's bill should sail through the Leg-
islature. It is past time to close this loophole
and hold everyone accountable when a per-
son's life and health are endangered.

AS AMERICAN AS...


An old friend of mine,
whom I haven't seen in more
than five years, called me out
of the blue about a week ago.
,Unlike yours truly, a
native-'borri' American, my
T'friend-was borf in Cidiacan,
Northwest Mexico, and has
lived in Southern California
his entire life. Never'having
been to Florida, he was excit-
ed about finally having the
time to accept my invitation
to come to the Sunshine State
and see it for himself.
We chatted for awhile
about this and that, and then
he surprised me by suddenly
going off on the subject of the
recent immigration protest
march in Los Angeles, orga-
nized in large part via the
many Spanish-speaking radio
stations in the L.A. area,
where an estimated half mil-
lion people, mostly Mexican
illegal aliens, protested in the
streets against the immigra-
tion bills currently being
debated in Congress.
Having lived in San Diego
for roughly 20 years, I have
long been painfully aware of
the effects that the steady
influx of illegal immigrants
has had in that area of the
country. Still, it was truly
something to hear him go off
about it I have rarely heard
him speak in such vehement
tones.
He is one of the most easy-
going, apolitical people I
know, and during our long
friendship, we have not often
discussed such things, so to
hear such angry words from
him made me sit up and take
notice.
His aggravation primarily
stemmed from two things.
First, he was disgusted at the
very idea of offering anything
like an "amnesty" or "guest
worker" program to this
brazen horde. He spent years
going through the legal
process to eventually become
a U.S. citizen, and the thought
that lawbreakers might be
rewarded in such a fashion en
masse by our own govern-
ment was, to him, a supreme
act of bureaucratic cowardice.
Neither of us had any illu-
sions about how the Mexican
government would respond if
a mob of illegals tried any-
thing like this in, say, Mexico
City.
Second, he was outraged at
the belligerent behavior of
many of the demonstrators,
who by the thousands were


waving Mexican (not Amer-
ican) flags and chanting
"Mexico! Mexico!" and, in
Spanish, "Today we march,
tomorrow we vote!"
They were demanding -
demanding all the rights
accorded true citizens bf the
United States, including such
unconstitutional welfare-
state benefits such as health
care, public education, etc.
Never mind that many of
them are already the recipi-
ents of such public largesse.
While he sympathized
with the reasons many of
them are here, as do I, the
sheer gall of his fellow Mex-
icans infuriated him. Such
individuals are not here to
assimilate, he pointed out;
they are coming here to take
advantage of all the benefits
America has to. offer, while
pledging their loyalty to an-
other country.
Law enforcement was so
intimidated, they were afraid
to arrest anybody simply
because it would have likely
triggered a major riot. In-
teresting how that didn't
make the news; I guess the
"news" agencies didn't want
to spook the locals.
"Ifthey're here to 'do the jobs
that Americans won't do,' "my
friend said, "and if they are
truly here looking for 'The
American Dream' and 'a bet-
ter way of life,' then why are
they clogging the streets in-
stead of working?"
Good question.
Mass illegal immigration is
currently at the forefront of
national news, and it's about
time. Like most things politi-
cal, movement in any positive
direction is excruciatingly
slow, and as usual, things
have to reach critical mass
before any of our esteemed
leaders even begins to ac-
knowledge there's a problem.
Well, Houston, we have a
problem.
This is my first column on
this subject; there will be oth-
ers as this debate continues.
For now, let me close with
this: Disasteruis on the hori-
zon when millions of illegal
immigrants have so much
contempt for a country's laws
that they feel they have a right
to break those laws and
deserve to be rewarded with
citizenship.
We as a nation have never
had any problem with immi-
gration legal immigration,
that is.
We do, however, need to
know who's coming in, and
we need to control the flow
according to our needs.
Bring a skill, get a job, learn
English and assimilate, just as
my own predecessors did.

Sewage plant not suitable near river


Editor:
Call it what it is a travesty in the works.
An 82-acre Thomas Ranch parcel being developed by
Divosta has been set aside for a sewage treatment plant on East
River Road, which ends in a canal leading to the protected, wild
and scenic Myakka River.
Where will the effluent be pumped? Will it be driven down
into the water table to infect the wells of neighboring existing
homes?
What will happen if more than a Category 3 storm slams
into the berms and opens up the sludge ponds to pollute the
watershed and wonderfully pristine Myakka River?
Where are the Sierra Club, Audubon Society, Swiftmud, Save
the Manatee proponents, along with the Sarasota County com-
missioners, North Port powers that be and our legislators?
Why isn't the sewer plant located on the 8,000 acres of West
Villages farthest from the river? Are the developers afraid it will
affect the value of their lots or pollute their surrounding land?
Aren't our commissioners concerted with the impact on
existing taxpayers' properties and with environmental dam-
age? Or are they only anxious to fill the coffers with any dollars
they can collect? Will they have a legal fund to cover the suits
brought by neighbors with infected wells and indignant envi-
ronmentalists?
Were the abutters notified of the plan?
How can the developers be allowed to begin building
months before the annexation is approved? The DEP must
have a say in where the sewer plant is located. Isn't the devel-
oper putting the cart before the horse?
Scary stuff.

LET 'EM HAVE IT!




Throttle back, boat jockey


Slow down. I live on the Intracoastal. Boaters in full-size
cabin cruisers or yachts speed through the Intracoastal along-
side the airport and make a huge wake that smashes giant
waves up against the side that almost swamp smaller fishing
boats and speed boats, not to mention the poor manatees that
live in the Intracoastal. That is the area where manatees live, a
mixture of salt and fresh water. And yet, we have these incon-
siderate, rude, ignorant or all of the above, boaters speeding
through the area. I think the marine police need to pay a little
more attention to this; it's really a shame.


Old myths. Bob Vedder's
column last week on the
school referendum perpetu-
ates old myths about today's
teaching industry. They don't
get three months off in the
summer. Reality is, they work
until the end of May, then the
administrators, followed by
the teachers, report back dur-
ing the third week of July. So
they actually get about three
weeks off, during which
they're required to attend a
couple of days of training and
awareness programs. They
don't have a seven-hour
workday, the students do. The
teachers and staff are in
before 7 a.m., often work until
4 and 5 p.m., and then take
,work home at night and over
the weekends. Think about it.
Could you afford a home in
our area on a $35,000-a-year
salary today?
What happened? I looked in
the paper in Wednesday and
Friday trying to find out what
that horrible accident Monday
night on Jacaranda Boulevard
was all about; we even had the
medivac there for an hour,
nothing in the paper. But, big,
big article on the dogparkwith-
out their baggies doesn't make
much sense. We all want to
knowwhat happened the other
night.
No help. After a long wait,
Venice finally has a movie the-
ater. How long will we have to

Perfect spot? I totally do not
agree with the marina at the
airport. I don't want to support
boaters out there. The noise
levels from the boats, plus the
fact that it's going to impact the
Venetian waterway, and the
scrub jays and the gopher tor-
toises I don't support that.
There are other spots they can
put in a marina besides there.
Additionally, what about the
opening up of bridges? That
south bridge will be constantly
opening just because these
people want a marina there by
the city council or the city man-
ager. Let them find another
spot.
No money. If you think the
referendum money made it to

people get the newspaper and
throw away those plastic
bags. They could use those
when they are out of bags at
the doggie park. Be grateful
that you have a park for your
dogs to enjoy and the beach.
Bring your own bags.
Sign overkill. The other day
when heading down Harbor
Drive, I notice how many
signs appeared to be in peo-
ple's yards and occasionally in
city right of way advertising
places for rent and sale. But,
one case that was of particu-
lar interest was a house at the
corner of Ponce de Leon and
South Harbor Drive. It had
four for-rent signs on one
piece of property. Now that's
kind of like overkill. Does the
city have some type of restric-
tions on those types of signs?
Yes to marina. Regarding
your question should there be
a marina at the airport, yes,
there should. It will enhance
economic growth at the south
end of the island, and it's good
for the entire community, not
just the island ofVenice.

Misleading leaders. Make
no mistake, the United States
is a theocracy as well as Iran.
Candidates in the United
States who seek high office
must and do have the ap-
proval of the Christian estab-
lishment or they are doomed.
If you are a free thinker, or an
atheist, you need not even
consider seeking public office
in the U.S. The theocratic
leaders of the U.S. are trying
very hard to scare you into
another war in the Middle
East. This time they want you
to send your sons, daughters


and your money to the
planned war against Iran.
They say Israel is threatened
by Iran's nuclear program.
Iran would never use a
nuclear weapon against Israel
because it would kill all the
Palestinians right along with
the Israelites. Remember this
as you are led down the road
to another unnecessary war.
Curious. We're just curious
how the city government can
allow people to live four more
years in a residential house
without paying a mortgage,
foreclosures being addressed
and falling through loopholes.
It's just amazing to us that this is
going on in our city ofVenice.
EDITOR'S NOTE: We're not sure
which property you're talking
about, but the city of Venice has
no involvement in whether a mort-
gage on private property is being
paid. Foreclosures go through the
state court system.
Able to compete. If we
want our graduates to be able
to compete with students
from India and China and
other countries, won't they
also have to work for 35 cents
and hour to be competitive in
the world market? It's not just
the education, it's also the
base salary.
Tried to help. I want to
thank you for the article, "A
mother's response." As a sister
of someone who is a habitual
drug abuser who has really
tried to help over the years, it's
just heart breaking. I was
happy to see you give the
other side. It's very tough, and
sometimes it's hard to know
what's right to do and I hope
you follow up with places in
our community that are help-
ing people like this, or ideas or
resources.
Not tile. Yes, that new four-
story, upscale condo being
built in the apartment district
is id\ er[ing that it has metal
roofs. Are metal roofs allowed
in the apartment district or
does it have to be tile? I
thought it had to be tile.
Someone needs to check into
this.
Against marina. I'm a boat
owner and see firsthand the
pollution generated by mari-
nas. They should not be locat-
ed near any habitat preserves.
We have enough marinas now
with the economy changing
and the boating industry suf-
fering from higher gas prices.
If the city wants more money
from the airport, let the pilots
pay a small fee to use it to land
and take off. Everybody pays
something now to recreate.
I'm against the marina.

news in our reports to the
local community.
For those of us who trea-
sure the tradition of great
American family newspaper
journalism that developed
during the last century, there
has been bad news and good
news. The Knight Ridder
newspaper chain was on the
block. A large stockholder
seeking better results than
last year's handsome 15.7 per-
cent profit on sales, had
pressed for the sale.
There was a keen interest
among the investment bank-
ing community seeking to
mine a greater profit from an
already profitable business.
The Knight brothers, John
and Jim were hard-headed,
competitive newspapermen
who knew it was good busi-
ness to create interesting, in-
dependent editorial voices
that explored all aspects of
their community without fear
or favor. Their papers in Mi-
ami, Akron, Philadelphia,
Charlotte, Detroit and Talla-


hassee were consistent win-
ners of journalism's top
awards. Their papers attract-
ed leading professionals in
our field.
As a 12-year-old paper boy
for the afternoon Miami
News and later a teenage car-
rier for the Miami Herald, I
saw that philosophy at work
in my little town of Surfside.
When newsprint was ra-
tioned during World War II,
Gov. Jim Cox's afternoon
news took all the advertising
offered while tightening the
news space. The morning
Herald rationed advertising
and gave as much space as
possible in the thin papers of
those days to news. My morn-
ing Herald route grew to three
times the size of my old News
list.
I know John Knight was a
respected, tough competitor.
My first and only experience
as a golf caddy was carrying
his heavy bag on my left
shoulder while toting the club
pro's on my right.
It was my first outing, and
when he asked, "Where did
the ball go, caddy?" I had no
idea. The pro saved me, say-
ing, "I think down just to the
right of the fairway."
When Knight asked if I
thought he should use a 9-
iron on the next shot, I was
really in trouble, because I
didn't know if it was hidden
under one of those fancy cov-
ers or elsewhere in the bag.
Jim Knight, who handled
the business side of the
Herald operations, was a gen-
tier soul. On at least one occa-
sion my car stalled in his dri-
veway at the end of Indian


Creek Island at 6:45 in the
morning as he was leaving for
work. He took off his coat and
helped with a push to my
stalled Ford while I threw it
into gear.
In my senior year in col-
lege, while working full time
as a reporter for the Sanford
Herald, I came to see him
about a job. His advice was to
go where it was tough and
competitive and to learn the
circulation business if I want-
ed to run a paper someday.
With no children interest-
ed in running the business,
the Knights joined their pa-
pers with those of the Ridder
family and took the company
public and created the Knight
Foundation, which has done
much to advance the profes-
sional level of journalism.
Part of their genius was in
attracting outstanding lead-
ership that shared their civic
commitment and drive for
quality, people like Lee Hills,
Alvah Chapman and Jim
Batten.
The good news is that the
Miami Herald and most of the
Knight Ridder papers, includ-
ing the Bradenton Herald, are
to be sold to the McClatchy
newspaper chain. GaryPruitt,
who runs the family-con-
trolled company, is a smart,
energetic newspaperman
with journalistic values that
mirror those of the Knight,
Ridder and McClatchy fami-
lies.
Professional leadership
will continue.

What happens when
they're Americans?
Editor:
I bristle when I read about
"jobs that Americans refuse
to do." There are no jobs
Americans refuse to do! There
are employers that are able to
employ illegal immigrants at
illegal wage rates, under ille-
gal working conditions, forc-
ing them to live under illegal
living conditions, because
they have no legal recourse.
Rightfully, Americans will
not work under those condi-
tions. We are now fearful that
if the illegal immigrants


become "guest workers," they
will now have legal status,
and they too will refuse to
work under those conditions
,and will seek better wages
(ii l bele! job ,'. ;,.
Illegal iinmigrants have
been able to work under
those conditions because our
legal oversight has turned a
blind eye to the violations.
We benefit from those who
are not Americans, willing to
work under slave-like condi-
tions because it is good for
our economy. We now have to
deal with the 11 million work-
ers and the many who would
like to come here.
We have opened Pandora's
box, and we don't know what
to do about it.

Acid in stomach
over ph level
Editor:
I am concerned about the
ph level of the city water.
Since 2000, I've tested the
water and always found it to
be 7.2-7.4, which is ideal
according to my plumber and
pool guy, Charlie. That read-
ing is ideal because it pro-
longs the life of the city's
pumps, valves and meters
and the hot water heater and


faucets in our homes.
Well, since I've heard
about the copper pipes leak-
ing in many of the newer
homes (at Pelican Pointe for
eanmple), the ph level hias
gone from ideal to around
8.2-plus. My tap water (on the
island) smells like an Alka
Seltzer.
I took a water sample and
my own ph test over to the
water authority just east of
the Venice Avenue Bridge. A
pleasant young man said that
they maintain the water at 7.9
ph. He advised me that my ph
test solution was probably
too old and therefore my test
was reading too high at 8.2-
plus. So, I purchased a fresh
solution, retested and still the
ph exceeded 8.2.
What is going to happen
when the city has to replace its
own equipment because the
pumps, valves and meters are
clogged up from adding too
much potash? They will come
to all of us for more money,
that's what will happen.
Developers get away with
installing junk copper pipes
and Venice residents pick up
the tab. Nothing seems to
change. Am I right or am I
wrong?

The real Lady Indians defeat Ranch


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It appears the Venice High
varsity softball team is back
inform.
Heather Laird was sharp
in the pitching circle, the
defense was tight and the
offense rose to the occasion
in a 3-1 victory Thursday
night at Lakewood ranch.
The Lady Indians improv-
ed to 19-2 overall and 12-1 in
Class 5A District 12. Ranch
fell to 15-8 and 10-4.
Following a nine-day
spring break layoff, Venice,
ranked No. 3 in 5A, didn't
look all that sharp in a one-
run win over Bayshore Tues-
day.
The Lady Indians had a
good day of practice Wednes-
day and returned to action
Thursday with their game


faces on.
"Pete (assistant coach
Dombroski) deserves credit,"
head coach Larry Sandburg
said. "He ran practice Wed-
nesday. I couldn't, be there.
We played a lot better, but
we're still making little mis-
takes like missing cutoffs that
may hurt us."
The Lady Indians still
have time to fine tune those
before the district tourna-
ment.
Laird (9-1) was making her
first start in more than two
weeks. She was away during
spring break on a class trip
and missed the Sprung Fling
Tournament. Nevertheless,
she was impressive with her
stuff and demeanor. Laird
scattered five hits. The run
was unearned.
"I didn't know it was that
long," Laird said about the


last time she pitched. "Some-
times breaks are good. They
can work to your advantage."
Laird also helped herself
with a RBI single in the sixth
inning plating Venice's third
and final run.
The game featured a pitch-
ing dual between Laird and
Ranch's Alicia Hanewich (11-
7). The two threw blanks for
four frames before Venice
got on the board first in the
top of the fifth. Batting left-
handed, Heather Boyts chop-
ped a One-out single to right.
Stephanie Sullivan sacrificed
her over to second. Nikki
Clark came up clutch with a
RBI single up the middle.
Boyts just beat the tag.
Ranch tied it in the bottom
of the frame on two singles
and a throwing error.
Venice answered with the
game-winning rally in the


top of the sixth.
Brittany Hipple led off
with a single. Maureen San-
didge laid down a perfect
sacrifice bunt. Hipple beat
the throw to second and the
Lady Indians were in busi-
ness.
Kristen Bailey bunted both
runners up to set the table.
Megan Watson's grounder to
shortstop plated the go-
ahead run. Laird helped her-
self with a single off the top
of leaping shortstop Sarah
Boyd to score Sandidge and
make it 3-1.
Laird set ranch down 1-2-3
in both the sixth and seventh
frames.
Venice finished with eight
hits two apiece by Felicia
Taylor and Hipple.
Venice will close out regular
season district play Friday
night at home against North


Port.

The Venice junior varsity
is closer to a perfect season
after Thursday's 6-4 victory at
the Ranch.
The JVs are now 21-0 with
two games remaining.
Venice had to score three
runs in the seventh to win.
The Lady Indians scored four
runs via suicide squeeze
bunts. They were laid down
by Amanda Harvey, Kayla
Ellingsen, Katelynn Albert
and Shannon Mulloy.
Mulloy had three hits.
Albert pitched five innings
and Ellingsen 'the final two.
Ellingsen had two hits.


Sick fields still plague Wellfield


Back in January, Venice
Little League officials had
legitimate concerns ..about
the state of its fields at Chuck
Reiter and Wellfield for the
upcoming season.
Complaints resulted in a
beehive of activity espec-
ially at Chuck Reiter, where
kids ages 7-12 play.
Dugouts, backstops and
fences were repaired by Sara-
sota County Recreation and
Parks workers. Infields were
re-sodded.
The league dug into its
own coffers and painted
the concessions, clubhouse,
maintenance buildings and
dugouts.
As host of the district and
sectional tournaments, Ven-
ice Little League wants to
put on its prettiest face for
the rest of the tri-county and
Southwest Florida areas to
see.
As much as things are look-
ing up at Chuck Reiter, things
are still looking mighty rough
at Wellfield, where the older
Little League kids ages 13-16
play their games.
That's rough as in the
infield grass on Fields 1 and
4. Or the glass coming up
through the infield clay on


Field 1. Or the dugout ceil-
ings on all three fields. Or
the state of the rest rooms.
Or the pock-marked back-
stop on a couple of the dia-
monds.
You get the picture.
The clock is ticking. Dis-
trict tournament time comes
at the end of June. Sectionals
are in July.
"Spring break, we had a
week off," said past VLL presi-
dent, board member and
coach Rich Carroll. "They
would have had an excellent
chance to work on the fields.
Springbreak has comee and
gone."
"These fields are old as
old as any in the county," said
Jim Hanks, another VLL board
member. "They need more
than just a band-aid."
The light towers on Field
5 are leaning in different
directions. They are wood-
en. The fixtures are an-
tiques.
"They don't even make
the replacement bulbs any-
more," Carroll said.
Carroll showed how play-
ers hang their drinks on
nails protruding through the
dugout ceilings. The wood
on the dugout benches is
well-worn. Talk about getting
splinters....
The bathrooms under the
press tower are antiquated,
tiny and in a state of collapse.
Hanks said that Port-O-
Potties will have to be brought
in for the districts and re-
gions.
Over at Field 1, the county
put in irrigation. Hanks said
that effort is to be commend-
ed. However, in the process,
pounds of jagged, broken
glass was brought to the


infield surface.
The field sits on top of an
old dumping site.
The county just brought
in truckloads of clay to fix
the problem. Pieces of glass
were still found in a Thurs-
day morning walk.
The list of other possible
improvements goes on and
on.
Hanks said the league
needs to hit the county with
a wish-list of repairs.
"It's budget time for the
county and city," he said.
The county and city.
That's; ,where it aU,stqts.,and
ends.

field are city owned and
county maintained. That
results in a lot of gray area and
finger pointing to the other
side, according to Hanks.
"We're stuck in the mid-
dle," he said. "If we can get the
two together to nail out an
agreement...."
Hanks has a copy of a 1991
agreement signed by both
county and city representa-
tives that states that the coun-
ty is responsible for mainte-
nance including paying
electric at recreation facili-
ties including Chuck Reiter
and Wellfield through
2011.
Hanks estimates Venice
Little League has made more
than $40,000 in improve-
ments over the past six
years.
Yet, Venice Little League
still gets billed for lights.
"We just paid $2,500,"
Hanks said. "We're trying to
pay our share. The bottom
line is, these are older facili-
ties. They need more atten-
tion than just regular daily
maintenance."


Nails that hang from the dugouts serve as drink holders. At the right is a makeshift leak repair.

High noon at the Venice Jetty

MR. SHEEPSHEAD


This is a story that I will
remember for quite awhile.
I walked out on the jetty
,last Friday at high noon. I
noticed a shirtless young
man playing what seemed to
be a large fish. As I got closer
SI saw a huge snook jump out


of the water (36-38 inches). It
was his fish, thrashing around
the rocks. His buddy (also
shirtless) was waiting patient-
ly with a freshwater brook
trout landing net. I figure
about half of its head would
fit in this small net.
After another couple of
minutes Tom's line snapped.
Nowhere comes the best part
of this story. Torn was using
8-pound test and he tight-
ened the drag during the fight
with this monster. I asked
him how strong was his
leader. He answered: "What's
a leader?"
In fact, I guessed at the 8-
pound test line. Tom had no
idea, in fact he didn't even
know what that term meant.
He said the largest fish he
ever caught was a 6-inch
bluegill and that was about
20 years ago.
The story still isn't finish-

ed. I found this new info out
Sunday.
Right after I left, they
noticed this monster came
to the surface apparently
dying from a swallowed
hook. A snorkeler swam out
and retrieved it. Tom actual-
ly has a picture of him hold-
ing what turned out to be 36
inches.
The story still isn't over.
After Tom released the fish
and left, another person
somehow retrieved this dying
or dead fish. He wouldn't
listen to the fishermen who
informed him that was an
illegal thing to do and he took
it home.
Steve McManaman (the
first mate on the Legacy)
told me that they caught 18
spanish mackeral and seven
kings last Friday morning
about 2-3 miles off of the
jetty. They were all caught


trolling.
NY Richard caught a boni-
ta about the same distance
off of the jetty. There's also a
reliable report that the bonita
were in Snook Alley the other
evening.
Bob Godau (very reliable)
caught 22 keeper and about
seven under-sized pompano
in one week at the jetty. They
were all caught on pompano
jigs, slowly bounced off of the
bottom.
Inshore fishermen, target
pompano, they love this clear
water. I saw some caught last
Friday at the jetty.
I made an error in last
week's article. The limit is six
pompano, not seven. My
buddy Neil Taylor of Pinellas
County caught my mistake.
Thank you Neil.
Fellow sheepsheadites,
send me your fishing reports.

(Fla.

Turin and back


BY ALAN D. JOHNSON
CORRESPONDENT

Last month I lived out a fantasy
I've had for many years to watch
one of my grandkids compete in the
winter Olympics. Actually the fanta-
sy is older than just "many" years. It
has been evolving for more than 60
years, first starring myself, then my
children and finally my grandchil-
dren.
It finally came true. Anders John-
son competed in the 90- and 120-
meter ski jumping competition in
the 20thWinter Olympic games held
this February in Turino, Italy. He did-
n't win any medals. I quickly moved
that dream to a fantasy of the future.
The important thing, I came to real-
ize, was that he was named to the
team.
We didn't even know Anders
would be picked for the team until
late February, about two weeks
before the games started.
This led directly to another piece
of knowledge: deciding to go to
Olympic games two weeks before
they begin is not an ideal plan. In
fact if my son, Anders' dad, -didn't
know his way around the world class
skiing infrastructure, it might well
not have worked out at all.
Before I describe some of the
adventures, or misadventures, that
occurred.on the trip I wish to state
up front that I wouldn't change the
experience for anything. We got a
chance to root for Anders, root for
our country and get caught up in the
excitement of the games.
Therefore the following is not to
be considered whining.
The trip was kind of exciting right
from the beginning. Last fall I had
made arrangements to come on
down to Venice for the month of
February to keep alive relationships
made over the 14 years my wife Dot
and I lived there before moving back
North in 2003.
I'll divert from my main narrative
here to explain in less than 50 words
how it is that I came to be visiting
Venice in February. Dot and I moved
back North to be near family
because she was in failing health. I
lost her in November 2004.
So now I was prepared to start
leisurely driving down to the
Sunshine State on Jan. 17. Then, on
Jan. 12 my son Alan called. "Dad," he
said, "Anders has been named to the
Olympic team." The games started
on Feb. 10 and ended on Feb. 26. By
the end of the day I was convinced
that I could actually go over there,
but I'd never had a passport and
everybody said they could take
weeks to get.
Well, I'm here to tell you that for a
couple of hundred dollars or so in
expediting fees and overnight mail
charges you can get a passport in a
little over a week. I had it sent to the
motel I'd booked and it was waiting
for me when I arrived Feb. 1.
That was the first challenge, but I
didn't feel sure it had been solved
until the passport was in my hands.


COM IN s i jAV


IC A.


I'I


All the other arrangements were
made by my son. He booked the
flights, secured hard-to-find lodging
in Italy, rented a car and scored tick-
ets to do what we wanted. It was to
be a whirlwind trip. I was leaving
Tampa at 1:33 p.m. on Feb. 16, and
connecting in Chicago with my son
and his lady friend Sue, both of
whom were coming in from Salt
Lake' City. We would fly together to
Milan, Italy, via Heathrow in Eng-
land. By the evening we would he
driven to our lodgings, a bed and
breakfast in the greater Turino area.
We would reverse the route just six
days later on Feb. 22.
The whirlwind had a little trouble
getting off the ground. A good friend
drove me to the Tampa airport at 11
a.m., a little sooner than recom-
mended for international flights.
Turned out it was more than a little
sooner. The plane took off at 4;30
that afternoon because (surprise,
surprise) there were severe prob-
lems at Chicago's O'Hare airport.
We met somewhat belatedly in
the terminal. But forget making the
original connecting flight to
Heathrow. So after frantically scan-
ning the flight monitors we booked
another flight and were on our way.
Come to find out changing flights on
the run, so to speak, would 'create
another problem.
This problem showed up at the
airport baggage area in Turin. My
suitcase with ski jacket, ski pants,
gloves and hat, LL Bean winter
boots, turtle necks, changes of
underwear and socks, was still in
Chicago. You see, security regula-
tions dictate that no luggage will be
taken on board an airplane that is
not also carrying the owner. Of
course, once you've arrived at your
destination and made an urgent
request they will deliver the luggage
right to your door a couple of days
later.
This helped explain why Alan and
Sue had carry-on luggage only and
an arm-full of winter clothing. Plus
they were dressed for the winter
when they left Utah. Not that Venice
was experiencing beach weather,
but I couldn't see myself to wearing
warm winter clothing in Tampa.
In a rented Nissan Micro small-
er than what is seen in the United
States -we set off about 9 p.m. local
time on the 17th in dense fog on an
expressway. With my son at the
wheel our stopping distance was fre-
quently greater than my range of vis-
ibility. Nevertheless, many Italians,
living .up to their reputation, went
flying past us.
Some of them were in "Smart
Cars." No more than 6 feet long,
these high-speed vehicles look like
compact cars that have been cut in
half. Two would comfortably fit in a
single parking space.
We finally arrived at our destina-
tion, the city of Pinerolo, about 11
o'clock, tired and uncomfortable. We
had not been to bed for some 36
hours, having slept the previous
night on the plane. We were renting
the personal apartment of the owner
of the bed and breakfast and the
arrangement was that we would
drive there and my son would call
the owner on his cell phone and he
would arrive from wherever he was
staying in the area and let us in.
So we drove to the bed and break-
fast, which looked like a medieval
fortress, no sign of life, and our cell
phone didn't work. Not compatible
with the European network, you see.
The staff at a MacDonald's a cou-
ple of miles away were most gra-
cious. They let us use their phone to
make that crucial call. But no one
answered! It took maybe five sec-
onds for the ramifications to sink in
and for this to become the low point
of the trip. We knew hotel rooms
were booked for the Olympics and
sleeping in the car was not a pleas-
ant prospect. The gracious Mac-
Donald's staffer offered us hotel

Olympic games.


phone numbers from the phone
book and the use once again of the-
phone.
Actually, a room was available -
for $150 Euros a night for each per-
son. This would be about $180 U.S.
dollars a night each. Maybe we
would sleep in the car after all.
Gloom all around and a certain
party was near tears.
Then, what the heck, another call
to the B&B and joy! The owner
answered. Within a few minutes we
were in the apartment and soon
after that sound asleep in bed.
We learned that the bed and
breakfast was a modern make-over
of a small part of a large and ancient
farm structure that resembled a
fortress and dated back possibly
1,000 years to the Roman Empire.
We could have spent days soaking
up knowledge of this place. But we
didn't have the time.
The next morning we were up
fairly bright and early, had a quick
continental breakfast and piled into
the little Nissan to find the special
Olympic bus depot. Large
Greyhound-type busses were lined
up in an open square, each with a


different destination. We looked for
the one labeled "Pragelato."
This is the village about an hour
and a half away in the Alps where
the Nordic events were held. Nordic
means ski jumping and cross-coun-
try skiing, and that's where Anders
would be competing.
We arrived after riding through 40
miles of spectacular mountain
scenery and Alpine villages crowded.
in against the roadway.
Immediately after disembarking
we found ourselves walking along a
crowded avenue lined with vendor's
tents where one could buy sou-
venirs, clothing, snacks, sandwich-
es, wine and coffee. There was a
disco tent that must have had 5,000
square feet, where they sold beer
and hard liquor but no food. Next to
that was a tent wherein you could sit
at a table with linen table cloth and
napkins and order a fine meal and
wine.
My son took off on one of his fre-
quent searches to find friends and
officials who had complimentary
tickets to the events we came to see
while Sue and I soaked up the
atmosphere. In a perfect world this

would have been more completely
worked out ahead of time, but anxi-
ety added to the excitement. Prices
for the Nordic event tickets, if you
could still get them, were well over
$100 each.
We were all set to see Anders
jump on the first day when the word
came out that it was postponed
because of wind. This is not an
unusual thing. Wind can definitely
be a problem with ski jumping.
It's taking me a long time to get to
this, but we did see Anders jump. He
did well, sailed through the air for
.123 meters (that's 134.5 yards), and
that didn't get him onto the podium.
But we weren't seriously disappoint-
ed. Anders is 16 years old and the
medal-winners ranged in age from
the mid-20s to early 30s.
"I've got probably four more
Olympics to go," Anders said. And if
his career progresses as it promises
to, we will start laying our plans well
before February, 2010 for Western
Canada.
. What we'd really like to see is
Anders and his older sister Alissa on
the U.S. ski jumping team. She is
also traveling around the world
competing, and within the last
month the FIS dropped its long-
standing objection to having female
ski jumpers.
The description of watching a
family member compete in an
important event is all too brief,
because it reflects this reality: You
will spend a long time going to the
event, invest hours or days, and you
get to see your loved one perform for
a very short time. Maybe a minute.
So it is more about team spirit.
The grandstand at the foot of the
120-meter jump was jammed with
excited fans from around the world.
As one jumper and another took off
a different section of the crowd
seemed to go wild because the
Americans, Norwegians, Germans,
Japanese, Fins and Swedes tended
to gather together.
Norwegians were in the rows
immediately below us and one

Free pizza party planned


ELLEN HILLSTROM
i' ; : '


As I reported before in this
column, the South Venice
Civic Association is on its
annual membership drive
this month. Last Monday, the
board approved an added
feature to the drive: A pizza
party for new members who
sign up in one day.
The pizza party will take
place on Sunday, April 23,
from 4 to 6 p.m. at the South
Venice Community Center,
720 Alligator Drive. Join the
SVCA on that day and your
family will be eligible to enjoy
free pizza and drawings for
prizes from area merchants,
and receive information
about the benefits of mem-
bership, the uses of the boat
ramp and our South Venice
ferry.
In fact, there will be draw-
ings for free passes and a
chance to draw for a free


membership as well.
The committee is going
out to the South Venice pizza
parlors and in exchange for
donating a few pizzas each,
they will get excellent publici-
ty in our newsletter and at the
party.
Invitations will be "mailed"
by special insert to the Venice
Gondolier Sun "Green Sheets"
published on Wednesday,
April 19 be sure to watch
for it.
Dues to join the SVCA are
$40 per family membership.
SVCA members will want to
attend, I'm sure, but they will
need to donate $2 to get in.
Get connected to your
homeowner association in
the South Venice Subdivision

together to build community
pride and strength. Come on
down and have fun and join
your fellow neighbors.

A long trail from Vietnam to Englewood

BY RACHEL ALEXANDER -
STAFF WRITER


There's glamour in the
nails, but there has been little
glamour in John Vo's life.
Englewood is now home
for John and LanVo and their
two children, Lemon Bay
High School honor students
Phuong Tran, 15, and Xuan
Tran, 13.
But for the enigre from
Vietnam, getting here and ob-
taining his business, Glamour
Nails on State Road 776, didn't
come easy.
Vo was forced to flee from
the North Vietnamese on foot
and by sea when he was only
15 years old.
"I don't know how I did it. I
was scared out of my mind.
My family is Buddhist, but
God is in my heart. I prayed
God give me a chance to
make a change."
Vo's father had fought be-
side the Americans during the
Vietnam War, and the com-
munists had it in for Vo's fam-
ily. Everyone in Vo's family
was killed, he said, with the
exception of his sister and
brother.
"They hid, too," he said.
But the communists even-
tually caught up with Vo's
brother.

A matter of identity


BENNETT GROSS



There is a standard joke
among rabbis about the two
men who argue over the right
way a prayer service should
be conducted, yet when they
get down to it, the right way
for each is the way they were
accustomed to when they
grew up.
We are all creatures of habit
and of being comfortable
with the "familiar" familiar
foods, faces and places. It
becomes a challenge to look
at things in a different light
and through a different focus.
Yet, if we never start looking at
things through a different set
of lenses, we stop learning, we
stop growing.
The leadership of the Jew-
ish Community Center of
Venice felt we had reached a
critical crossroads in order
for us to grow we had to
change our identity, or at least
modify our name.
Who you are most often


signifies what you are.
When our founders chose
the name Jewish Community
Center of Venice they had in
mind a place where Jewish
people could gather and wor-
ship and socialize.
However, people moving
into the area and familiar with
Jewish Community Centers
elsewhere had a different
idea; they looked on us as an
institution with a swimming
pool, fitness center, childcare
center, card playing rooms
and snack bar.
What was needed there-
fore was to signify what we
have become a house of
worship welcoming the Sab-
bath and the holidays with a
warm, spiritual rabbi and a
wonderfully talented cantor
in a friendly and comfortable
sanctuary.
A place of learning too,
offering workshops in Jud-
aism and Torah study as well
as a sparkling new religious
school where Jewish learning
and identity could thrive. All
that is available, plus a range
of cultural and social activities
for our members and those
who wish to partake.
With the approval of the
membership at our March 26
meeting, we have made the
change official. We are now
the Jewish Center ofVenice.

Pride in the face of poverty


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sec-
ond article by Florida resident and
mission volunteer Nathan Van
Coops on life in Haiti.

BY NATHAN VAN COOPS
GUEST WRITER

For once in his life Ba was
failing to honk our Jeep's horn
at someone on the road, and
this time we desperately
needed him to.
The large dump truck in
the road ahead of us either
didn't know he was backing
into the front of our vehicle or
didn't care, and while all five
of the other people in the car
seemed to be yelling at the
top of their lungs it didn't stop
the truck from mashing our
front end under its bumper.
The crowd along the river
was yelling now as well as it
finally came to a stop. Ba got
out of the driver's seat and
headed for the front of the
dump truck intending to give
its operator a piece of his
mind. At that same time the
truck began driving forward
again, dragging us along with
it and sounding a new chorus
of yelling from the crowd
around us.
I slipped out of my seatbelt
in the passenger seat and
jumped across to man our
now vacant controls. Stomp-


ing on the brakes and work-
ing the wheel back and forth
to dislodge us I hoped our
battered tires could take the
strain. Fortunately we broke
loose and the dump truck
drove down the embankment
and stopped near the river
without us in tow.
The other passengers in
the back seat vacated to the
sounds of angry yelling and I
restarted the car thankful that
it still ran, and backed it off
the roadway, leaking radiator
fluid as I went.

the street where a band
equipped with makeshift in-
struments was marching by
us playing a lively tune. I
smiled as Rachel gestured to
make sure we got a photo.
Nothing seemed to deter her
enthusiasm. It had been like
this the whole trip. If I can say
:-one thing for my trip so far, it
definitely hasn't Been boring.'
This island is a shock to the
senses. Drenched in the
warm Caribbean sun, it could
be a paradise, but in reality is
anything but. I look for the
beauty here but it is often
hard to see buried under
heaps of garbage and dis-
guised by a constant layer of
filth. The people often seem
to be the only clean objects in
view as we swerve through
the rutted streets or walk
around the towns.
Haitians seem to take spe-
cial pride in their appearance,
especially on Sundays as they
make their way to church ser-
vices. I wonder at seeing them
in ties and dresses in spite of


the heat and the miles they
will walk getting to their
churches.
Ahead of us on the crowd-
ed streets of St. Marc I watch-
ed a young girl in her Sunday
dress sitting sidesadle aback a
moped taxi, gracefully clutch-
ing her hymnbook and sway-
ing effortlessly as its driver
dodged its way trough the
congested streets. It's a rou-
tine ingrained through the
years, one many might find
incongruous considering the
depth of the suffering here. I
suppose that's what makes it
so important, a reason to
shine in an environment that
conspires to keep you dirty
and rundown.
My time here feels like an
eternity some moments. I
look forward to the feel of my
shower at home and food that
I don't have to question the
safety of eating. Then I look at
the imploring faces of the lit-
tle children looking up at me
and I feel grateful to have any
food at all.


We dispersed the majority
of our medicine at Goyavier
along with shoes and clothes
for anyone who could fit in
them. So many will be going
on without improvement to
their situation however be-
cause we have been unable to
supply enough for them. The
clinic will have enough sup-
plies to last them until the
next visit. We pray we will
have enough people to ad-
minister them. Doctors here
are in very short supply. Many
people suffer from eye prob-
lems with no way to treat
them. A good optometrist
could make a world of differ-
ence, but there are none to be
had. A dentist would be a
huge blessing too.
I don't blame anyone for
not coming. There is no glam-
our to be found here, no over-
whelming gratitude for what
you've done. The desperate
plight of these people can
sometimes make them seem
grasping and ungrateful. At
times you feel like an


American face is just viewed
as an easy mark, someone to
mooch off of, or a passing
opportunity they will never
see again so they don't have to
care about. In many cases
that may be true.
I look at Rachel and won-
der how she has managed to
find the strength to keep
coming back despite the
headaches. I hear her frustra-
tions and her doubts about
the limitations of what our
mission can accomplish but I
see the proof of her resolve in
the fact that she has perse-
vered to this, her fifth trip' in-
side of a year.
I feel it's a rarity in human
nature to give knowing that it
will never be appreciated the
way it should be, never recog-
nized sufficiently to make up
for all the strain.
I hope and pray for more
like her to come, because I
can see it has made a differ-
ence. She has been able to
establish real relationships
and show these people that


her aid here is more than just
a fleeting whim.
I've learned to value all of
our friends here, the ones
who have stuck by us, who
have helped to the best of
their limited means. Martin,
one of the Haitians who helps
run the clinic, often leads us
in prayer and I can never help
but smile at the Winnie the
Pooh beanie hat perched
atop his head. I don't under-
stand his prayer but I usually
add a few more of my own in
my head. Prayers for the peo-
ple here, for the success of our
efforts, and especially for
prayers of thanksgiving for
the generosity and good
hearts of all the people back
in the United States who have
made this all possible.
With half a dozen Haitian
hands, one pair of American
ones, a hammer, a torch and a
wench around a tree, our
front end finally gets straight-
ened, our radiator leak repair-
ed and we are back on the
road. Like usual, I have no


idea where we're going but with
Ba back to blaring the horn like
crazy I know at the very. least
they'll all hear us coming.

Two errors crept into the
recent Our Town article about
the Venice Historical Society
home tour last weekend.
The original location of the
J.H. Lord house was just west
of Park Lane Drive and Bay-
side Drive in the Bayshore
Subdivision and it was Doro-


thy Korwek who led the effort
to save and restore the Tri-
angle Inn.
In 1991 it was moved to its
present site on Nassau Street,
where, following extensive
renovations and remodeling,
it has been home to the
Venice Archives and Area
Historical Collection since
1996. January through May,
the building is open'Monday,
Tuesday and Wednesday, 10
a.m.-4 p.m. In June, the build-
ing will revert to its Monday
and Wednesday schedule for
the rest of the year.
Currently on display are
pictures and artifacts from
the World War II Venice Army
Air Base.

ain" isn't lost on dude ranch-
ers across North America.
Fans of the award-winning
movie are actively seeking out
their own cowboy experience,
and few places are better than
a dude ranch for those
wannabe cowboys and cow-
girls to safely ride, rope and
take in some breathtaking
scenery.
Bookings are running 30
percent higher this year than
last year according to infor-
mation recently in from the
Dude Ranchers Association
in Cody, Wyo. Since 1926, the
DRA has been helping con-
sumers find quality ranch
vacations by establishing and
enforcing high standards for
its 114 members, something
especially important given a
surge of novice riders about to
descend on the dude ranches.
in the coming months. Dude
ranches place up to 4,208 rid-
ers in the saddle on any given
day and log some 1 million
hours of horseback, riding
during a six-month season.
Because each member ranch
is required to compete the
DRA Horse Safety Certifi-
cation Program, guests can
take comfort in the fact that


Low Fat Soft
Serve Yogurt
Variety of Flavors


they are in expert hands, asso-
ciation representative Cheri
Amos-Helmicki said. A core
element of the certification
program is Adaptive First Aid
for the Trail. Most ranches re-
quire riding instruction be-
fore guests are paired with a
horse that matches their rid-
ing ability for a trail ride.
DRA membership has
grown from 35 ranches in the
Yellowstone area to more than
100 ranches in 12 western
states and two Canadian
provinces. For a list of DRA
member ranches, call (866)
399-2339 or send e-mail re-
quest to info@duderanch.org
or visit duderanch.org.
A recent groundbreaking
ceremony for the McCoy
Terminal Complex at Key
West International Airport
marked the beginning of a
project valued at about $30
million that is to nearly quad-
ruple the historic airport's ter-


minal space. Airport director
Peter Horton said the termi-
nal is needed to serve more
than 600,000 passengers
arriving and departing Key
West each year. With five
commercial carriers, the air-
port currently accommodates
100 arriving and departing
commercial flights daily.
Horton reported that the


McCoy Terminal Complex is
to incorporate a new two-
level building as well as an
adaptation of the current ter-
minal facility. The new termi-
nal, slated to open in July
2007, should encompass
almost 80,000 square feet,
compared to the current facil-
ity's 21,000 square feet:

Beware of psychedelic mushrooms

disguised as 'chocolate cookies'


Doctors Hospital of Sarasota announces

Frist Humanitarian Award winners


SUZY COHEN, R.PH.


Q: I'm in college and went
to a party where everyone was
acting strange. I found out they
were all eating some type of
chocolate "cookie" they called
"silly putty." I left the party
because my friend said the
cookies were laced. Have you
heard of these cookies? D.W.,
Portland, Ore.
A. Yes, but these are not
cookies. They're chocolate-
covered mushrooms that
make your brain feel like
silly putty because they're
psychedelic drugs. You
were smart to leave the
party when you did.
"Shrooming," a form of
recreational drug use, has
found its way into the fringes
of youth culture.
Unfortunately, it's dangerous
and sometimes kids die.
There are many varieties
of mushrooms that contain
hallucinogenic ingredients;
one can get high from eating
them. The possibility of a
tragic or fatal outcome is
even more likely if alcohol is
consumed. Effects begin in
half an hour and could last
for six hours.


Psilocybin is one of the
substances isolated from
these "magic" mushrooms.
Its use is an ancient practice
in many cultures. The eupho-
ria it causes may include an
ecstatic, out-of-body experi-
ence that some people call
religious. Other effects of
the drug are not so dreamy:
vomiting, muscle weakness,
clumsiness, chills, confusion,
paranoia, stomach pains
and panic.
College kids should have
enough will power to stay
away from drugs, especially
dangerous ones like psyche-
delic "cookies." But open-
minded people can recog-
nize that there may be good
uses for controversial
substances. For instance,
Harvard Medical School is
testing psilocybin and LSD
in the treatment of cluster
headaches the ones that
feel like someone just
stabbed you in the eye
with a hot poker.
Far-fetched? Not really.
Many excellent medications
sold in the pharmacy come
from plants. Aspirin started
out that way. And then there
are those wonderful pain-
killers like morphine and
codeine, the heart medica-
tion digoxin, colchicine for
gout, theophylline for asth-
ma and quinine for malaria
and leg cramps. The active
ingredient in marijuana
eases nausea, vomiting and
wasting syndrome; Marinol,
a synthetic version, is sold
in the United States by pre-
scription only. And mind-


boggling as it sounds, Ecstasy
is being studied to see if it
can ease the fear suffered by
people who are terminally
ill.
Clearly, psychedelic
mushrooms should never
be abused, but not all mush-
rooms are bad. Some types
are cultivated and used
for their antioxidant,
immune-boosting and
energy-enhancing benefits.
I'm referring to high-quality
supplements of Maitake,
Cordyceps, Reishi and
Coriolus, which are safe.
Certain kinds lessen the
dreadful side effects of
radiation and chemo-
therapy.
In case you are wonder-
ing, psychedelic mushrooms
are illegal in the United
States in any form even
if they're disguised as choco-
late dessert. Personally, if
non-medicinal mushrooms
are going to find their way
into my mouth, they will be
served up by a chef at a nice
restaurant, smothered in
Marsala sauce.

Did you know? Many
asthma attacks are triggered
by aspirin products. Be
careful with products that
contain such ingredients as
salsalate, salicylate, homos-
alate or salicylic acid.

intended to treat, cure or

BY CHRISTY LEMIRE
GUEST WRITER

You've got to give Rian
Johnson credit.
He's taken a huge risk
with his first feature, writing
and directing a film that
viewers will either embrace
for its ingenuity or reject as
a gimmicky stunt.
"Brick" is a 1930s-style
film noir set in a contempo-
rary Southern California
high school, placing Das-
hiell Hammett-style patois
in the mouths of angst-
ridden teens.
"A body's got a right to
be curious," rich-girl femme
fatale Laura coos as she tries
to manipulate bespectacled
outsider Brendan, who's
roaming among the school's
various cliques investigating
the murder of his ex-girl-


friend. (Later she'll ask him,
"Why'd you take a powder
the other night?" after he
evades her obvious advances.
Da noive of him.)
"Bulls" are cops and
gatss" are guns, and Brendan
is the unlikely "yeg" or guy
- who gets caught up in
them. The action shifts be-
tween mundane suburban
locations like tract houses
and athletic fields, and de-
termining who eats lunch
where, and with whom,
serves as a crucial clue.
Or as a brainy character -
appropriately named "The
Brain" puts it: "Lunch is
a lot of things. Lunch is dif-
ficult."
It's all- very low-budget
and high-concept, inspiring
your head to want to like it
more than your heart will
allow. But something about


this murder mystery is off-
putting from the very begin-
ning. The film's language is
so self-consciously specific
it often clangs, and the
actions of its characters are
so unrealistic, it keeps you at
arm's length and never al-
lows you to settle into a
comfortable groove.
"Brick" begins with a body
- that of pretty, blond Emily,
lying facedown in the water
outside an ominous-looking
drainage tunnel. Brendan's
the one who finds her that
way, and having received a
desperate call from her the
previous day on a pay
phone, no less he becomes
doubly suspicious and in-
spired to get to the bottom of
the crime.
In the tradition of the clas-
sic Bogart characters, Bren-
dan's looks in no way indicate

what he's capable of doing as
he digs closer to the danger-
ous truth. He's slight, fine-fea-
tured and messy-haired,
perennially dressed in a sim-
ple, gray hooded sweat shirt.
But he can think on his feet
and he can take a punch (the
frequency with which he gets
his butt kicked is comical), all
of which he's willing to do for
this doomed woman he loved.
Gordon-Levitt has grown
up confidently from his days
playing a goofy kid on the
wonderfully absurd, beauti-
fully written sitcom "3rd Rock
From the Sun," and having
learned on that show how to
handle rapid-fire dialogue
serves him well here.
"Brick," a Focus Features
release, is rated R for violent
and drug content. Running
time: 110 minutes. Two stars
out of four.

easy or difficult; it's up
to you and how you choose to
feel. One thing is certain -
you are changing your lifestyle.
Daily circumstances will never
be the same once this cycle is
complete.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
Your personal life
deserves as much
attention as your professional
existence. Make adjustments
in order to restore the balance.
Your relationship with an Aries
gets interesting.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22). Who knows how
long someone will be
in your life it's hard to see
the potential now. Just treat
everyone with respect.
Business tip: Keep in constant
touch with what your public
wants and needs.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). You're money-
smart, and you will
find the best way to spend -
for instance, paying in install-
ments for something you
want if it's too pricey. Also,
a long-term investment is
favored over a fast-turnover
deal.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-
V' 4 Nov. 21). Indecision
throttles creativity -
make up your mind quickly.
Though it's hard to see past
the cluttered desk, there really
are clear skies (and clear
surfaces) ahead.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21). There's
no reason to fear com-
mitment. Platonic love could
turn romantic and vice versa.
Be open to all the possibilities.
At work, don't wait for others
to educate you. Read up.
Then extend your knowledge
to others.

t I CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). Only those
who resist temptation
know how hard it is to do this.
You'll count yourself among
the strongest willed today,
and you'll also have great
compassion for those who
have faltered.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18). This is your
day to step boldly out
of the sidelines where you've
been "taking pictures" and do
something that other people
can take pictures of. In other
words: Act more, observe
less.

\ PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20). Time manage-
ment and money
management are one and the
same today. Start thinking of
your hours as valuable and
billable, and see how that
changes what you do with,
them.

TRIP from Page 5B

"My brother was in jail 18
years. He lost his memory."
Vo ran for his life through
the jungles, from a city near
Cam Ranh to another city
where the North Vietnamese
would not know him.
It wasn't until he started to
explain how he managed to
get to America that Vo's eyes
began to well with tears last
week.
"I wasn't looking for free-
dom," he said. "I was looking
for food. I was hungry. They
had rice (the people going to
the boats). Day by day, boats
go away."
Boat people
Vo said he would see peo-
ple leaving on the boats,
escaping Vietnam. At some
point, he managed to get on
one. He couldn't say exactly
how.
The teenager became one
of the masses who became
known as the "boat people,"
the million or more people
who fled Vietnam, Cambodia
and Laos after the end of the
Vietnam War in 1975.
Vo's hardship didn't end
when he set foot on the boat.
Things steered for the worse
when the boat engine failed.
"The wind goes north, the
boat goes north. The wind
goes south, the boat goes
south," he said, breaking
down during an interview last
week, unable to speak, then
apologizing for his reaction to
the memory.
"They died," he said. "I saw
30 of them in the water."
Vo said the boat was adrift
for 27 days, and dozens died
of dehydration.
"We tried to keep them on
the boat, but the smell," he
said.
Those refugees on the boat
had to throw the bodies over-
board, and the picture is still
vivid in Vo's mind.
Vo and others eventually
were rescued and brought to
America, where Vo had to ex-
plore an unfamiliar life, un-
able to speak or read English.
Forgotten
John Vo's "hometown" be-
came San Francisco, where
his foster mother took him in
after he escaped across the
Pacific.
When Vo arrived in the
United States, he was given an
opportunity to attend high
school.
"I didn't do well," he said. "I
couldn't speak English."
Later he went to cosmetol-
ogy school, where he became
an expert nail designer.
"They changed my life, the
Americans," he said. "My
body is American. They gave
me money. They gave me a
place to stay.
"People say 'why don't you
want to go back and visit?' "
he said. "No. They killed my
father, they killed my uncle.
Go visit? Why? What for? I
have nobody. Six months, I
looked for my brother. I don't
remember what Vietnam
looks like."
To be American
Life didn't come gift-wrap-
ped for Lan Vo, either. Al-
though her father had citizen-
ship in America, Lan lost her
husband in Vietnam.
She suddenly was a single
mother.
Matters took a turn for the
better, however, when the
couple met soon after Vo
came to Florida five years ago.
And in recent months,
things have been looking up.
Recently, the Vos acquired
Glamour Nails in Englewood.
Vo is very grateful for his
experiences in the United
States, and his passion for
Americans is evident to his
customers.
"I've been their client a
long time," Marie Talley said.
"We're very happy with
your work and always have
been," Talley told Vo, "you're
very warm and generous."


"I agree," said Marcie


Let the Venice

Classifieds work
for you


Loher, also an Englewood res-
ident. "Lan and John are just
wonderful people. They've
adopted us."
Loher said the Vos promote
a feeling of friendliness
among the customers.
"That's what happens in
this shop. You come in and
start talking to the people,
and it's like you're long-lost
buddies."
And Vo insists he will only
use the best products for his
customers, because they are
Americans.
"I use high quality for my
customers, because I love
Americans," Vo said.
Vo said he instills the same
virtues at home with his chil-
dren.
"I pray for them to be hon-
est. To be American, you be
honest, no lies," he said. "To
be good friends, don't think of
yourself. Be fair with your
friends. Everything you have,
you share. Don't hurry. Be
comfortable. Think ahead."

For residents of Harbor Cove, it's all about the view


SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL


Many homes at Harbor Cove enjoy sweeping water views.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Bocci and boats are just
part of the attraction for resi-
dents of the Harbor Cove
mobile home community in
Warm Mineral Springs.
With approximately 2
miles of waterways and gulf
access, it is not surprising that
so many residents have boats
and most of those can dock
their boats right behind their
residences.
For the few who do not have
their own docks, there are club
davits and boat slips in a mari-
na behind the community's
two-story clubhouse. The com-
munity also offers RV storage
for a modest fee.
Other recreational facilities
in the community include
shuffleboard courts, horse-
shoe pitching courts, billiard
room and two heated pools.
Dances are generally held
each Saturday night in the
clubhouse.
And nearly everywhere are
spectacular views.
The typical lot in the com-
munity is 100 feet deep and 50
feet wide although there are a
few exemptions along some
of the waterways and bays
that make this community
one with nature and provide
such spectacular views.
On the market at Harbor
Cove is a 1,300-square-foot
mobile home and lot, with a
private dock. It has been list-
ed for $125,000 with Century
21 Sunbelt Realtor Sandra
Morris. Because it is one of


This private dock is behind one of the few homes for sale at
Harbor Cove.


the older and smaller homes,
it is at the low end of the price
scale, which ranges from
about $125,000 to $250,000.
"Most people have resi-
dences up north," Morris said
about the community where
she has lived for several years.
Harbor Cove also is a com-
munity in transition, where
new buyers often replace
older homes with new larger
homes, picking the site for the
view or because, like this list-
ed home, there is a private
dock at the back of the lot.
"In summer the manatees
come up to shore and eat our
grass," she said. "We had a
mother and baby last year."
Long ago considered built
out with just one vacant lot
available, Harbor Cove is a
haven for nature lovers.
The. community dates to
1962, when Albert Blackburn
and partner Leonard Tanner
decided to sell the uncleared
land as 99-year-lease lots,


calling it Trailer Acres. Sea-
walls, canals, marina and a
recreation building were con-
structed in 1964 when the
complex was purchased by
Boris Kaye and the home-
owners association was form-
ed.
There was a name change
in 1968 and another in 1974
when the Harbor Cove name
was adopted.
By 1984, the activities list
was two pages in length. It is
even longer today, and as
Morris drove me through the
community the shuffleboard
and bocci courts were filled
with players and a few boats
were cruising the waterways.
There are 815 lots in the park.
To see the community, take
U.S. 41 south toward Warm
Mineral Springs. Harbor Cove
is on the right.
For an appointment to see
the listed home, which is at
347 Trailorama, call Morris at
661-9661 or 426-8811.
