Whose road is it anyway?


Venice and Sarasota County debate responsibility
for local road maintenance.


BY JJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

There's no better way to
ruin Sarasota County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub's
day than to ask her when the
Pinebrook Road extension
will open up.


At least, it seemed that way
during the joint meeting of
county commissioners and
Venice City Council last
Thursday.
"This has been one of the
worst projects," Staub said
during the meeting. "I'm glad
it's not a county project."


The latest estimates have
the project connecting Venice
Avenue with Center Road
finally opening within six
weeks, Sarasota County Pub-
lic Works Director Jim Har-
riott Jr. said during his report.
Contractors allegedly poured
the concrete for the traffic sig-
nal stands, must remove it,
repour the concrete and wait
for it to cure.


Will this fit under your pillow?


The Pinebrook Road pro-
ject- just outside of city lim-
its and built by a private
developer in exchange for
impact fee credits was just
one of a number of road
issues brought up by council
members and county com-
missioners.

County road projects, like the much-delayed Pinebrook Road
extension pictured above, were among the topics at the joint
meeting of Venice City Council and Sarasota County
Commissioners. The base poles for the traffic light suppos-
edly the last holdup came in wrong and had to be resized,
according to the county. The road is expected to finally open
within the next six weeks.

Christies Hearing.........................9B

After three workshops and
three public hearings, the
final. meeting to discuss the
East Venice Avenue plan has
finally arrived.
The Sarasota County com-
missioners will hold a public
hearing to consider the plan
at 5:01 p.m. Tuesday at the
Robert L. Anderson Adminis-
tration Center, 4000 South
Tamiami Trail, South Venice.
This meeting is the final
chance for the public to offer
any changes to the plan.
The commissioners held a
public hearing in March at
which most of the people
offering comment were the
developers who already have
established projects within
the planning area.
The planning area is bor-
dered by Interstate 75 to the
north, Jacaranda Boulevard
to west and River Road to the
east, and extends about a half
mile to the south of East
Venice Avenue.
The purpose of the plan is
to provide a framework for
the preservation, planning


and development of proper-
ties along the road.
The plan is intended to be
the answer to a recent spate
of uncontrolled growth in the
area. The commissioners
went so far as to impose a
building moratorium in Oct-
ober to last until July.
The plan has evolved from
three workshops that began
in December with residents
to discuss the future of the
East Venice Avenue area.
The commissioners decid-
ed at the first meeting that
any rezoning or development
project already in the county
building development pro-
cess is exempt from any
future ordinance which could
be in place.
City to comment
The idea of the plan is to
create a neighborhood feel
without the area losing its
rural feel.
The basic plan calls for dif-
ferent guidelines for the north
and south sides of EastVenice
Avenue: a grid system for the
north side and an intercon-
nected community to the
south.


Commissioners were dis-
appointed at the lack of com-
ment from residents, even
though more than two dozen
spoke up at previous plan-
ning commission meetings.
They were also concerned
about the lack of input from
officials in the city of Venice.
At a joint meeting Thurs-
day, City Manager Martin
Black said city is formulating
a response to be presented
Tuesday.
Black said the city is hop-
ing for greater interconnect-
ing roadways and a large
greenway. He added that he
was disappointed the county
was not seeking another link
to Jacaranda Boulevard.
Once the public hearing
process is complete, a formal
ordinance that will guide
development in the area is
expected.
Copies of the' proposed
plan are available for inspec-
tion during regular business
hours at the Robert L. Ander-
son Administration Center,
Room 122 and the Jacaranda

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Internet

BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

The to-do list is already on
Julie Williams' desk, just wait-
ing for her to be sworn in as
Venice's newest police chief.
At the top
of that list
will be a fes-
tering morale
problem that
has plagued
the depart-
ment for
years. Williams
Current
administra-
tion and and retired police
chief Jim Hanks downplayed
criticisms about department
operations. Police adminis-
trators accused the media of
sensationalism, despite two
department studies the
Matrix Report last year and
Avery Report in 2003 that
cited in-fighting, lack of faith
in police leadership and inad-
equate training.
And then there was the
$370,000 settlement two
weeks ago of a wrongful death
lawsuit, in which Venice
police were blamed for failing
to tell jailers a prisoner was
suicidal. She was found dead
in her jail cell, hanging from
her bed sheets.

BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS COLUMNIST


Almost two and half years
after it suddenly closed in
January 2004, the former
Landmark Restaurant onVen-
ice island near the Venice
Avenue bridge has been sold
again.
Speculation has surround-
ed the-property, and it now
appears the site could be des-
tined for aWalgreen's.


message boards indicate the
problems are still there, and
they're ready for the new
police chief.
Some of the remarks, how-
ever, have even drawn City
Manager Marty Black to com-
ment. The local site, venice-
florida.com, had a posting
two weeks ago saying, "Two
more Venice cops with 5 yrs or
less are leaving. Just thought
you should know."
Within. 15 minutes of the
posting, the city manager
posted his reply.
"Yes, and at least one was
encouraged to quit because
he openly said he wouldn't
work for a woman," Black
wrote in the March 23 post-
ing. "Frankly, the city and its
residents do not need that
type of individual providing
them services."
Online shockwaves
The city manager's posting
came right before he, left for a
week on vacation, but it sent
shockwaves through the on-
line community that extend-
ed onto a chat room dedicat-
ed to officers in the Venice
Police Department.
"My thoughts are that the
city manager was not lying,
only misinfromed. I truly
beleive that one of the top S's
sold him that line of bull%^&*
in and attempt to cover up
the true reason for them leav-
ing," wrote one person saying
it's "slanderous" and "a bold
faced lie."
One of the posters claimed
to be one of the officers leav-
ing, and writes that "whoever
started this lie needs to be
dealt with."

A major local developer
has acquired the property at a
price close to the asking price
of $3.2 million.
"It is a relatively quick deal
and should be consummated
in 120 days," confirmed com-
mercial realtor George Huhn,
partner of Gulf to Golf Realty
inVenice.
It is his understanding the
property has been acquired

Breakthrough on red tide research


There's a 20 percent chance
of rain today, Monday and
Tuesday. A cold front will tease
us with scattered showers.
Rain now would be good
news and bad news.
It would be welcomed by
parched flora. But it might ini-
tiate sinkholes. Central Florida
had one open up two weeks
ago.
What happens is that the
groundwater level drops dur-
ing dry conditions like we've
had lately, leaving empty
underground caverns to sup-
port the earth above. Rain
adds weight to the soil until -
plop. A sinkhole is created.
That's how Warm Mineral
Springs was formed many
thousands of years ago.

From the April 7,1975, Venice Gondolier Sun


STAFF REPORT


Science has made a great
breakthrough toward solving
the problem of red'tide.
Red tide expert Dr. H.
David Baldridge says a meth-
od of predicting red tide out-
breaks has been found and a
bloom appears imminent.
Baldridge, the top expert
on Florida's red tide out-
breaks, has made consider-
lable progress I anal] g the
problem. ,.
For the first time, sc'ihtists
can now predict such out-


breaks as a direct result of
Baldridge's efforts. The retired
Navy captain was the first to
study the preliminary aspects
of the organism rather than
the outbreak itself.
Working at the Mote Mar-
ine Laboratory on Midnight
Pass, Baldridge discovered a
direct correlation between
red tide (gymnodinium
breve) and water tempera-
tures.
The scientist ; explained
that red tide appears to occur
when temperatures from
January through April under-


go a steady and even progres-
sion from the 60s to the 70s.
When temperatures are
erratic, rising and falling con-
siderably with the air temper-
atures, red tide organisms do
not thrive.
Baldridge said an outbreak
now would provide the con-
clusive evidence needed to
back up his theory. But other
scientists already agree.
Around the world dinofla-
gellates, like red tide, are
being given a second look to
determine if temperatures
affect them also.
Baldridge pointed out that
G. breve is a plantlike lifeform


and said "it would stand to
reason temperatures would
affect them."
He noted that an ideal
spring in terms of water tem-
peratures would enhance the
chances of a red tide outbreak
or "bloom."
"We have isolated the peri-
od when red tide growth is
critical," he explained.
If conditions from January
through March are not favor-
able, red tide will not grow.
Baldridge added that red tide
outbreaks do not usually
begin in those same months
which coincide with tourism.
"If there is no outbreak

prior to January there will not
normally be one in the follow-
ing three months," he said.
Cost of the red tide
research program has aver-
aged from $120,000 to
"$140,000 a'year' but funding.:
for red tide research has
dwindled.

Grant will fund turtle-friendly lighting


BY GAVIN OFF
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR


A new Sarasota County
project aimed at erecting sea
turtle-friendly lights has re-
ceived an $8,617 grant from
the Florida-based Sea Turtle
Grants Program.
The moneywas given to the
county's Partnership for
Lighting Improvement project
and will help fund about 50-
lights, which will replace tra-
ditional lights around the
county's most popular sea
turtle nesting beaches.
Artificial lights disrupt and
confuse baby turtles, prevent-
ing them from heading di-
rectly to the safety of the
water. This is known as
hatchlingg disorientation."
It's also believed to cause
false crawls when sea tur-
tles travel up the beach, but
don't lay eggs. The turtles
either surface on a different
beach or discard their eggs in
the Gulf of Mexico, killing all
the hatchlings.
"Man-made lights and light
pollution is the leading cause
of sea turtle deaths in Florida,"
said Keri Ferenc, environmen-
tal specialist for the county.
This is the fourth county
project that has received
money from the Sea Turtle


Grants Program, a nonprofit
organization that funds turtle
research and protection
through the sale of sea turtle
specialty license plates.
Charlotte County received
a similar $20,000 grant last
year, funding turtle-friendly
lighting along Gulf Boulevard
and North Beach Road on
Manasota Key.
"It's so important to re-
member that with the privi-
lege of sharing our beaches
with these creatures comes a.
great responsibility," Kenya
Leonard, head of Sarasota
County's sea turtle program,
said in a news release.
Sea turtle season runs
from May 1 though Oct. 31.
Ferenc said the county
would soon send out invita-V
tions to homeowners interest-
ed in the new lights. Possible
locations for the lights include
private property near heavily ,.
nested beaches, beachfront
parking lots and "any prop- ,..,. !,3
erty adjacent to the more .
impacted sea turtle nesting
beaches," Ferenc said.
For information on sea tur-
tle lighting or to see if a prop-
erty qualifies for funding un-
der the county's program, call
the county at (941) 861-5000.
You can e-mail Gavin Off
atgoff@sun-herald.com. Sarasota County recently received an $8,617 grant to erect sea turtle-friendly lighting.

COMPETITIVE QUALITY COMMITMENT SINCE 1955


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Venice City Council will
hear first reading Tuesday on
the proposed annexation of
Gulf Coast Community Foun-
dation's 145 acres on Laurel
Road.
The regular meeting starts
at 1:30 p.m.
The council vote comes
within a week of planning
commission members recom-
mending approval, an un-
common turnaround time in
development matters within
city limits.
The community founda-
tion's project could bring
workforce housing into the
middle of a North Venice
development explosion that
will include 7,000 new homes,
retail complexes, an IMAX
movie theater and an ex-,
panded industrial park.
GCCFV President and CEO
Teri Hansen gave much of the
credit to city staff for expe-
diting the annexation deal.
Hansen hopes to have con-
ceptual designs ready within
six months. .
"We're on track with our
timeline," Hansen said. "It's
because of the city staff work-
ing with us. They understand
the sense of urgency."
Approval requires two read-
ings by city council. Also up
for approval is the neighbor-
ing 36-acre annexation of
Waterford Companies prop-
erty slated for retail devel-
opment. GCCFV and Water-
ford are working to develop
their properties in harmony
with one another especially
when it comes to roads.
Waterford is doing a similar
deal on the north side of
Laurel Road, where it will
provide parking for a South
County YMCA facility and a
Habitat for Humanity devel-
opment.
Venice has offered to waive
one-third of the "extraordi-
nary impact" fee of $1,760 on


homes that meet one or all
three workforce housing stip-
ulations, as defined by the
city.
Also on city council's
agenda:
Venice Housing Author-
ity Mayor Dean Calamaras
has nominated Elaine Rose
Clarke to fill the vacated seat
on the Venice Housing
Authority board. This unpaid
position will be one of the
seven decision-makers who'll
decide what to do with the
controversial $11.3 million
redevelopment project to
replace the 50 units at Grove
Terrace Apartments, the only
public housing complex in
South County.
Park rules Final read-
ing of new parks and recre-
ation rules. This includes
rules allowing dogs into about
half of the city parks. A previ-
ous Venice Gondolier Sun
article incorrectly stated dogs
were not allowed on the
Venetian Waterway Park bike
path. Previous city laws
excluded dogs from all parks,
except where otherwise
noted. Signs at the entrance
to the bike path state a dog is
allowed, if it is on a leash that


is no more than 4-feet long.
Habitat property Final
reading on rezoning 2 acres on
Knights Trail Road to govern-
ment use. Eventually, the city
will allow Venice Area Habitat
for Humanity and South
County YMCA to build on the
land for only $1 per year.
U.S. 41 Bypass project -
Chris Piazza, of the Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion, will lead a presentation
- detailing the widening of the
bypass from Bird Bay Plaza to
Center Road. The state has yet
to place the estimated $30
million for right-of-way ac-
quisition and another $30
million for construction on its
five-year forecast, despite
spending $5 million this year
for new design plans to
replace the outdated ones
completed in 1993.
Grievances growing -
On his monthly. update
report, City Attorney Bob
Anderson notes that the
number of union grievances
against the city is growing.
There are now 24 cases await-
ing arbitration, up from a low
of five cases needing an inde-
pendent counsel to settle the
dispute.

Commissioners consider land buys


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


The purchase of two key
pieces of environmentally
sensitive land is on the agen-
da for the Sarasota County
commissioners Tuesday.
The meeting Tuesday is at
the Robert L. Anderson Ad-
ministration Center, 4000
South Tamiami Trail, to ac-
commodate a 5 p.m. public
hearing on the East Venice
Avenue Plan.
The board is also being
asked to approve the con-
struction of a solar energy
system, and will hear a pre-
sentation about the U.S. 41
Bypass.
South Venice land buy
Commissioners are ex-
pected to approve an agree-
ment with the South Venice
Beach Endowment Trust to
purchase 8 acres of land on
the Intracoastal Waterway
that could be an expansion of
Shamrock Park.
The land is within 60 feet of
the south boundary of Sham-
rock Park and includes 500
feet of shoreline on the intra-
coastal and 300 feet on Le-
mon Bay.
The property includes 3
acres of uplands and 5 acres
of wetlands. The price is
about $550,000. The trust is
also transferring its easement
of 60 feet, which runs from
Shamrock to the bay.
Parks officials hope to use
the purchase to expand the
82-acre Shamrock Park by 8
acres and use the sandy
shoreline as a canoe or kayak
launch.


River Road purchase
The final contract for the
purchase of 28 acres at the
southeast corner of River
Road and East Venice Avenue
from Alice Blackburn is up for
a public hearing and formal
approval. The hearing is part
of the- morning session,
which begins at 9 a.m.
The county is paying $2.8
million for the land.,
Several ideas for it are
being considered, including a
fire station, an environmental
park and right of way for the
future River Road widening.
The. fire station would be
relocated there from the city
of North Port after the West
Villages project is further
along. The county would sell,
the existing station on U.S. 41,
in the recently annexed por-
tion of the city to North Port
and build the new station to
address the shift of the coun-
ty population closer to Inter-
state 75.
Shore Road water line
After more than two
months, the commissioners
are expected to formally ap-
prove a contract to provide
water lines to the Shore Road
area of Nokomis.
The commissioners balked
when the original contract
came forward Feb. 7, since
the estimated cost of the work
was half of the winning bid.
Westra Construction was-
the lowest bidder at $1.6 mil-
lion. County utility staff argue
that rebidding probably won't
lower the bids as supplies and,
overall costs are much higher
than when the original esti-
mate was estimated.


EAPAB presentation
Englewood Area Planning
Advisory Board Chairman
Steven Samuels will provide
the commissioners an annual
report on board activities.
Bypass presentation
Representatives with the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation will be making a
presentation about the possi-
ble design of the U.S. 41 By-
pass through Venice.
The presentation is expect-
ed to be similar to one offered
to residents three weeks ago.
The redesign includes lim-
iting the width of the right of
way needed for the road and
possibly cutting out bike
lanes and shrinking sidewalks
to the state minimum.
The redesign is being done
to save costs, but it does not
spare 19 businesses near Ven-
ice Avenue. The project does
not have any money budget-
ed for actual construction.
Salt Slough purchase
The commissioners are
being asked to agree to the
purchase of another lot for
the protection of the Salt
Slough Midden in North Port.
The board approved the
purchase, during their Jan. 25
meeting, for $50,000. This
purchase leaves three lots in
the sensitive lands area tar-
geted for preservation.
The site is considered a
critical part of the area's histo-
ry and has been deemed an
archeological site as well.
The site is at Price
Boulevard and Hyde Terrace,
and the slough feeds into the
Little Salt Spring Basin.

Venice Landclearing sued


over chipper mill


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

The city of North Port has
filed a lawsuit against the
chipper mill on Joe Jeff Street
in North Port Estates to make
it comply with city code.
The complaint was filed
March 27 in the 12th Judicial,
Circuit Court in Sarasota.,
The lawsuit is against Cin-
tom Properties, the owner of,
the property at 6726 Joe Jeff
Street, and Venice Landclear-
ing Inc., the business that
operates the chipper mill.
Venice Landclearing, with
an address in Venice, holds a
permit from the Florida De-
partment of Environmental
Protection for the plant-waste
chipping operation.
According to city attorney
Robert Robinson, the lawsuit
was filed but has not yet been
served on the defendants.
"We might want to amend
the complaint before we
serve it," Robinson said. "We
recently learned that the
property was sold to another
corporation."
Representatives )of Venice
Landclearing Inc., did not re-
turn .phone calls seeking
comment on the lawsuit.
$500 per day
According to Sarasota
County online property re-
cords, on Jan. 31, Cintom sold
the property to VLC Holdings,
Inc. for $500,000. VLC Hold-
ings lists..an address in Sara-
sota.
The suit alleges that Cin-
' tom and Venice Landclearing
are required to operate the
facility in compliance with a
site plan that the previous
owner, Steve Barnhart, filed in
1989.
The prior plan, was re-
quired because the chipping

mill would otherwise have
been in violation of the zon-
ing code that applied to North
Port Estates in 1989. The ow-
ner committed to operate in
the manner and with the
equipment outlined in the
site plan.
" By doing so, the owner was
allowed to continue operat-
ing the chipper mill even
though it was a "noncon-
forming use."
However, neither the initial
owner nor any subsequent
owner or operator was to be
allowed to expand the opera-
tions.
Cintom bought the prop-
erty in 2001, according to the
complaint.
The city cited Cintom for
several violations. When
Cintom failed to correct those
violations, the city referred
the matter to the Code
Enforcement Board, which
fined Cintom for several vio-
lations.
According to Carol Kozabo
of the city's Property Stan-
dards Division, fines continue
to accrue against the chipper
mill at a rate of $500 per day.
.Cintom hired Venice Land-
clearing,, but the violations
continued and fines grew to
more than $100,000, accord-
ing to the complaint.
Violations
The city's complaint lists
the following violations:
Illegally expanding the
pre-existing use.
Maintaining a mulch pile,
in excess: of allowable height,
for "a considerable length of
time."
Failing to maintain mthe
required buffer, berm and fire
access road.
Allowing a large accumu-
lation of debris.
Using the site for storage


and disposal, which is not
allowed.
Enlarging, intensifying
and extending the noncon-
forming use in that the buffer,
berm and fire access road
either are not maintained, or
have been filled with materi-
al.
Failing to maintain tree
and shrubbery plantings in
the front landscape buffer.
Failing to maintain a 200-
foot setback for material stor-
age.
Allowing the height of the
waste pile to exceed 30 feet.
Using portions 'of the
property for commercial pur-
poses in violation of the site
plan.
Relief sought
The suit contends the city
and the surrounding (North
Port Estates) neighborhood
will suffer irreparable harm if
the operations are allowed to
continue in violation of the
zoning requirements.
Tom Levesque, a nearby
homeowner said he is glad
the city filed this lawsuit.
"The commissioners did
their job and now it's up to
others in the city to continue
doing their job," said
Levesque referring to the Feb.
15 city commissioner meet-
ing where they directed
Robinson to look into filing
suit against the chipper mill.
The lawsuit seeks an
injunction against the owner
and the operator of the chip-
per mill to. force them to
come into compliance. The
city also seeks an unstated
amount of damages, attor-
ney's fees and costs.

are still upset over the
enclaves annexation deal of
four years ago, where Venice
avoided taking over responsi-
bility of neighborhood
streets.
The city countered with
complaints of having to
maintain county roads and
being overcharged on impact
fee credits.
The two sides didn't reach
a consensus on how to
resolve transportation dis-
agreements, but they did
agree about creating a report
analyzing roads responsibili-
ty.
"Let's get this thing fixed,"
county commissioner Paul
Mercier said. "Let's stop pos-
turing and solve the problem.
That's what they (residents)
want."
Pinebrook problems
Extending this north-
south road has turned into
more of a headache than
either government agency
expected. City officials criti-
cized the county for shifting
most of the cost burden to
Venice, while county com-
missioners blamed the city


for creating the need.
"Bottom line, (Pinebrook
Road) came on the (construc-
tion schedule) because of city
needs, because of their an-
nexation policies and devel-
opment. ... We had no inter-
est in developing," commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton said.
The city required the
Venice Commons shopping
center to pay and construct
the two-lane portion from
Venice Avenue south to the
city limits at Hatchett Creek
Boulevard. From there to
Center Road is county juris-
diction, and construction was
being handled by Pelican
Pointe developer Sam Rogers.
Promised to be open a year
ago, the road will most likely
not be fully functioning until
July.
The city and county ver-
bally agreed to a 50-50 split
on impact fees, using up $2.4
million, but the county has
slowly shifted the cost to a 60-
40 split with Venice spending
the lion's share, according to
City Manager Marty Black.
Black also reminded com-
missioners that Pelican
Pointe and its estimated 3,000


living units and golf course
were all a county-approved
project.
"It seems like we're taking
the hit all the way around,"
council member Rick Tacy
said.
'Sleight of hand'
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson was the most vocal in
expressing her anger over the
enclaves annexation deal
from 2002. That was when
pockets of unincorporated
property within city limits -
mostly on the island were
involuntarily annexed into
Venice.
This was to eliminate dup-
lication of services and septic
tanks, but language requiring
the city to assume roads
responsibility was left out.
Patterson didn't appear to
accept the city manager's
explanation that he assumed
county staff left the roads por-
tion out because Venice
wanted them brought up to
city standards before taking
over ownership, referring to
the deal as "sleight of hand."
The number of roads is
extensive, including nearly


every road in the Golden
Beach area along the western
side of South Harbor Drive
between the airport and Gulf
Drive.
"My guess there are a ton
of roads in the city that are
not up to standards," Pat-
terson said. "This one is a
gotcha and came to the com-
mission."
However, the city is taking
care of county roads. Venice
Avenue from U.S. 41 Business
west to the beach is one
example.
The debate ended with
both sides agreeing to gener-
ate a report, due within six
months, outlining which
roads should be handed over
and the financial implica-
tions of doing so.
"They (county commis-
sioners) have raised a legiti-
mate issue," said council
member John Moore, who
lives on one of the roads in
question. "It should be stud-
ied, and we should do the
right thing."

for a retail tenant. Details are
confidential at this stage.
"There is some interest
and we are in the early stages.
"I cannot confirm a defi-
nite site, but we are looking at
Venice," said Tiffany Bruce of
Walgreen's Media Relations
Department.
"How quickly the process
may go is entirely dependent
upon its approval by our cor-

porate division who oversee
each site location."
"City council agendas can
sometimes determine the
speed of the process.
"Sometimes it is two or
three years out, but other
examples include another
Florida location which was
approved by our real estate
department this month and is
slated to open in 2008," stated


Bruce.
Eight months after closing
the Landmark property was
acquired by Atlantic Shores
Realty of New York for
$1,675,000.
In August 2005 Huhn, act.-
ing for the sellers, stated the
property was in play again
with a major local developer
wanting to acquire it for d
mixed-use office and retaiJ
seven-story building.
Toward the end of that
month, on behalf of Atlantic
Realty, Huhn offered the site
to the city for construction of
a public parking garage for
downtown Venice,' but after
reviewing the offer, Mayor
Dean Calamaras said he was
advising Huhn at the stated
price the city did not have an
interest.

Several '/'
years ago,
a study
concerning the use
of complementary and alternative
Therapies showed that 42 percent of
Americans used such treatments and
the rates were rising. A more recent
study shows that treatments like chiropractic are
also popular among the children of these
patients. In fact, researchers found that the single
most important determining factor as to whether,
a pediatric patient is likely to utilize
complementary and alternative therapies is
previous use of the treatment by a parent. Boys
were found to be more likely to seek out these
treatments than girls, but a child of any gender with
low pack pain was particularly likely to do so.

A different



,kind of coach

With so much riding on high stakes tests, Venice
High counts on its data coach to help kids win in
the testing arena.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

A math teacher on special
assignment, Venice High's
Wayne Robertson is a differ-
ent kind of coach.
, Instead of pushing kids to
pump iron, he spends his
-time pumping out reports.
Like a football coach who
watches the game from high
above, Robertson helps the
school see the bigger picture
-hen it comes to high-stakes
testing.
Robertson's position, fund-
ed with referendum dollars, is
part test administrator, part
analyst.
He helps teachers with the
liuts and bolts duties of
administering county tests
,ke the Scholastic Reading
fventory and Princeton
review, and state-mandated
iCATs. His job involves coor-
dinating dates, times and
locations for the tests. He's
aso the resident test techni-
Cian who helps teachers navi-
gate online exams and trou-
fjble shoot glitches.
With all the emphasis on
,technology in the classroom,
lone of Robertson's biggest
'challenges is finding enough
computers to give the online
'tests. While there are many
,computers on campus, most
*are tied to individual class-
;rooms or not connected
'online at all.
The media room has 36
computer stations, with an-
Qther 12 portable units. Add
lo that another 20 wireless


units and you have all the
computers available to ad-
minister county and state-
sponsored fall, winter and
spring testing.
But the real job satisfaction
for Robertson comes after the
tests are given. That's when he
disaggregates the data from
various assessments to give
the results meaning.
"It answers the question:
What is the test data telling
us?" Robertson said.
Snapshots
Venice High's focus has
been primarily on bringing
up sub-par reading scores on
FCATs. Robertson is currently
focusing on county-backed
reading tests like the Prince-
ton Review (also called the
Sarasota County Planning
Tool) and the Scholastic
Reading Inventory. Both cor-
relate to FCATs.
The tests are being admin-
istered to all ninth- and 10th-
graders, and level 1 and level
2 11th- and 12th-graders this
month.
Princeton Review's district
benchmark assessment, ad-
ministered last week, is a 45-
minute online reading exam
based on the county curricu-
lum. Because the exam is
Web-based, teachers can see
the results instantly.
The SRI, which will be
administered beginning next
week, is a 20-minute online
exam that gives teachers
another snapshot of reading
proficiency. Both multiple-
choice exams are given multi-

ble spots.


,ple times each year.
In addition, Robertson will
help the school administer
science tests for the first time
on April 19. Teachers will use
the results to prepare for next
year's required FCAT Science
tests.
Because. the test is Web-
based, teachers get classroom
exam results instantly. Rob-
ertson then identifies trends
over the entire department or
class level.
Following each round of
tests he meets with groups of
teachers, primarily by depart-
ment, to pinpoint skills stu-
dents need to work on.
Recent data from Prince-
ton Review exams for 10th-
grade reading showed stu-
dents doing well with struc-
tural analysis and vocabulary
skills, but found pockets of
deficiency in literature inter-
pretation skills.
Students demonstrated
good literal comprehension
skills, but had trouble with in-
ferred comprehension skills,
like recognizing cause and
effect relationships or identi-


fying a conclusion or logical
outcome that could be drawn
from a reading passage.
Trakking'
Robertson said Princeton
Review's online analysis can
give teachers a few sample
quiz questions to help work
on those skills, but it's up to
the school's literacy coach
and language arts depart-
ment chair, Suzanne Krill, to
help teachers flesh out en-
ough questions to create a
good practice exam that tar-
gets the deficiency area.
"It's difficult to create high-
level high school questions,"
Robertson said. "Teachers
don't always have time to do
that."
The testing going on at
VHS right now is designed to
help place students more
accurately next year.
"It gives struggling kids a
chance to go back to the regu-
lar classroom if the test data
shows they're doing well,"
Robertson said.
Conversely, test data might
show a student could be bet-


ter served in a literacy-inten-
sive class.
In addition to reviewing
Robertson's disaggregated
test data on county and state-
level tests, teachers also use
the Sarasota County School
District's Trakker system to
monitor individual test
scores. Robertson helps staff
utilize Trakker to interpret
their own classroom test data.
VHS Small Learning Com-
munities coordinator Marilyn
Ruthardt gives Robertson cre-
dit for helping teachers see
the value in data analysis and
collaboration.
"Before, (the) Spanish
teachers felt like' they had
nothing to do with FCATs.
Now we know they do be-
cause Wayne showed us how
(that works)," she said.
So far, Robertson's atten-
tion has been focused on
reading, but he foresees a day
when all core subjects will get
the same close attention.
It helps teachers focus on
critical needs of students.
That's the bottom line,
Robertson said.


Experienced

principals

retiring

STAFF REPORT

TWo long-time elementary
school principals in Sarasota
County Public Schools have
announced their retirement
at the end of this school year:
Emile Quinn of Garden Ele-
mentary School and Tom
Coulson of. North Port's To-
ledo Blade Elementary
School.
Filling the Toledo Blade
principalship, the largest
school in the district, will be
Chris Renouf, principal of
Ashton Elementary, which
has been one of the largest
schools for many years. Mov-
ing to Ashton will be Wilk-
inson's principal, Bill Muth.-
The two schools have shared-
many of the same families
over the years.
"The school district will
miss the fine, experienced
leadership of Tom and Emile,
said Superintendent of
Schools Gary Norris. "They
have been outstanding prin-
cipals who have led their
schools wisely and effectively."
'Although their retirement
will leave a void, we have a
cadre of talented up-and-
coming assistant principals
who have completed our Pre-
paring New Principals pro-
gram for aspiring administra-
tors," Norris said.
To assure continuity and a
smooth transition at Wilk-
inson Elementary, Ruth
Thomas, who has served as
the assistant principal at that
school for 10 years, will be
Wilkinson's acting principal
for next school year.
The Garden Elementary
principal position will be
advertised for interested
applicants in the next two
weeks. It is anticipated that a
candidate will be selected by
the end of this school year.

Prescribed burns no longer raise fears


n 2001, a frightening black cloud of
smoke swirled like a cyclone through
the North Port Estates area. It started
with what is called a "prescribed bum".used
to remove the "understory" of tall grass,
dried weeds, brush and, shrubs at nearby
Carlton Ranch.
Unfortunately, the fire was not adequate-
ly contained, and it consumed far more land
than was intended.
Five years later there is good news.
Because of lessons learned following that
out-of-control blaze, significant changes
have been made. Officials believe a fire
storm of that magnitude will never happen
here again.
A town hall meeting on prescribed bums
was held in North Port Tuesday evening,
co-sponsored by the Sun papers and


Sarasota County. Interest was so great, the
wide ranging discussion continued for a full
half hour after the meeting's advertised
close.
Sarasota Fire Chief Chuck Johnston said
no prescribed burns can be held without
his permission. Further, a county or city
chief will be at the scene of a burn until the
last ember is out and cold.
A "Firewise" coalition that includes fire,
officials and landowners has been formed
to see that prescribed burns are handled
safely from now on.
Rick Christman, of the Florida Division of
Forestry, explained that for eons before the
first European arrived, Florida burned
because of lightning strikes. Our wildlife
and vegetation have come to depend on
having occasional fires.


Belinda Perry, a county environmental
expert, argued that box turtles, snakes and
other creatures crawl safely into under-
ground tunnels as the fire spreads, while
other forest natives find their way to safety
in green patches that aren't burning. She
added that even the endangered scrub jay
needs fire to clear the under story, so it
can find places to flit around and hide its
acorns.
Kevin Love, South Florida Water Man-
agement District land manager, said that
his organization has now accumulated
many thousands of acres, and it, too, care-
fully follows the burning rules. He, Perry and
and others also explained that the Florida
soil is improved for future growth by the
burns.
As residents who fearfully remember the


2001 fire pointedly questioned and chal-
lenged them, all offered calming and reas-
suring statements. The experts frequently
repeated that no private contractors will be
permitted to participate again. Only the
Forest Service will issue permits. And the
fire departments will be notified in advance
and will be standing by.
There is, of course, the chance of a light-
'ning strike or someone dropping a lit
match or flipping a burning cigarette butt
out of a car window. But the fire depart-
ments have acquired new equipment and
also have created plans to deal with these
unexpected fires.
Hopefully those who attended went
home and slept more peacefully after lis-
tening to the experts following the two-
hour session.


Why is



business down?


0 If yoi ask -retailers ho\\-
they are doing this year, many
will tell you good but not as
good as last year.
Last year the traffic was so
bad you often could not find
a parking spot, the worst in
the town's history. It even
sparked discussions about
the need for a parking garage.
' To make matters worse,
you also may remember traf-
fic was diverted into town
due to one crash after another
out on 1-75 between Laurel
and Jacaranda.
Some people have specu-
lated this year is not as good
because of gas prices, and
certainly that could be a fac-
tor but gas prices weren't
any too good this time last
year, either.
I have a theory on why I
felt it was worse last year.
What happened in the after-
math of Hurricane Charley
was that people who lost
their homes in Port Charlotte
and Punta Gorda found
places to live, in many cases
right here. They came to live
with friends or relatives, and
thus, houses that normally
would have two people had
four or five.
Many people who vaca-
tioned in that area could not
because their spot was gone,
but they wanted to be nearby
so they filled every available
slot in town.
Charlotte County lost
about 6,000 homes, a deficit it
has still not worked its way
out of.
My feeling is that most of
the people who were tem-
porarily here have left, leav-
ing us with a more normal
in-season crowd. Last week-
end marked the first grand
exit of people that takes place
when March leases expire. I
happened to get caught in
the fleeing traffic on U.S. 41
and 1-75 as I made my way
to the airport last Friday.
The next big exit comes
next week after Easter, and
then the final big loss is at
end of April.
Even though business has
not been as strong, many
businesses like ours have
had their very best year.

I did pretty well at my final
weigh in. The workout Nazi


Lynn was pretty proud as I
had lost 23 pounds, 2 inches
on my waist and had gone
down 2.5 percent on body fat.
I had also -gained 5 pounds
of muscle, which meant the
weight training was working.
So now I can go and buy some
clothes, which I did after the
fashion show on Friday.
I figure if I buy now and
try to lose another 5 to 10
pounds I'll have a little fudge
factor, no pun intended.

lance), Lynn and Melanie the

I thought it was good to
see that Gulf Coast Com-

in its planning for its hous-

LEApERS FROChild-Abuse Prevention Month


April is Child-Abuse Prevention Month


Editor:
The mission of Child Protection Center Inc. is the preven-
tion, intervention and treatment of child abuse. The readers of
the Venice Gondolier Sun are asked to take five action steps to
help the Child Protection Center reach its vision of a commu-
nity where children are safe from abuse and free to thrive.
1. If you suspect a child is being abused, call the ChildAbuse
Hotline at (800) 962-2873. Your call can provide help and pro-
tection for a Venice child who is in danger of being victimized.
2. Be a part of the solution by displaying a blue ribbon dur-
ing April. Tell friends, colleagues and elected officials that
protecting children from abuse is important to you. Call the
Child Protection Center Inc. at 365-1277, Ext. 100, if you want
a speaker for your group or blue ribbons for your home or
workplace.
3. Talk to your children, grandchildren or friends about
personal safety and child-abuse prevention. It is never too
early to warn our children about the dangers of child moles-
ters. Child abusers use any means, including the Internet, to
lure children into abusive situations. The Child Protection
Center can help you and your children's school with pro-
grams to educate you and your child on how to address
these serious matters.
4. Join the Child Protection Center, law enforcement and.
the schools in our efforts to protect the children of Venice
from abduction. The mere thought of another child in our
community being abducted should lead to a mobilized com-
munity ready to take action to keep our children safe from
child molesters.
5. The future of our children is in your hands. Know that
you can make a difference in the life of a Venice child.
Thank you for helping protect Venice's children from abuse,
neglect and abduction. It shouldn't hurt to be a child.

LET 'EM HAVE IT! SHOULD BIKES BE BANNED

ON THE JETTIES? CALL US AT 207-1111.



Jetties should be de-cycled


No bikes. I'd like to comment on the situation of bike
riding on the north and south jetty. It is really quite hazardous
when people are walking and strolling on the piers, and
some of the bikers are very inconsiderate, to come along
and almost push them off into the water. It's one of the few
places people can stroll and put a line in and fish. I think
that the parks department should really make the north
and south jetty piers a no-bike zone.


Not needed. Why do we
have to worry about a small
percentage of men having a
place to store their boats?
And why do we have to worry
about a few hundred pilots
flying for their own amuse-
ment? Taking choice property
for the glory of boaters or
pilots is something we need
not worry about. Where are
we going to put the working-
class people? Do these pilots
do business or are they com-
ing in to play golf and going
out to lunch? They fly over
everybody's houses at all
hours. I think it's great for
people to have hobbies, but
why should the majority
have to pay for these luxur-
ies? If the airport is going to
cost millions of dollars to
redo the runways and put in
new hangars, why don't we
move it out east of 1-75 and
start all over again? What's
wrong with Fisherman's
Wharf and its plans for a
large marina? Could it be the
big developers and city
council that don't have any-
thing to gain from it? I think
any of the changes to the
airport property should be


put to referendum for all the
people of Venice to vote on.
These matters are too impor-
tant for just city council and
the few people running it to
make such decisions.
Not worth it. I've been wait-
ing for about 15 minutes on
the south bypass to get on
the island. Traffic is backed
up to K-mart while the
bridge has been up, waiting
for one boat. I realize that
mariners have right of way,
but due to that fact, when
my lease is up on my business
on the island, I am going to
relocate like many others.
Getting on the island is noth-
ing but a hassle and a waste of
gas and .it's not charming any-
more. It is if you're visiting or if
you're on a boat underneath
the bridge, but sitting here
wasting gas at $2.50 a gallon
and the time, it's just not worth
it, not to mention the high
price of rent on the island.
A few ideas. Every now and

came up with couple of ideas
I'd like to run by you. One has
to do with evacuation of an

bases they plan on closing?
The infrastructure is there.
Housing is there. The eating
facilities are there. There's
always plenty of room to put
additional trailers. It would
only take a little steady main-
tenance with a skeleton crew.
The other one has to do with
gas prices and the war. Every
sixth Sunday, why not have
no driving except for public
transportation and emer-
gency vehicles? Stores and
everybody would adjust.
Think. Families would get
together. If people needed to
get somewhere, they could
use public transportation.
The third thought has to do
with the development of the
airport and the 300-400 boat
marina. If you think you got
problems with the bridge
raising and closing now, wait
until you get 300-400 boats
just south of the bridge. There

time how to implement the
extra half hour.
While it is upsetting that
we may have to spend even
more money than we had
planned, the idea of adding
time to the school day is a
very solid one. You have to
figure any change in school
times was going to have
some challenges and we
need to persevere through it
all.
We have been told our
students were going to school
fewer hours than any in the
state, so there obviously are a
lot of models of how to work
the school day. We should be
able to borrow on their ex-
periences.

We have won 15 awards in.
the annual better newspaper
contest held by the Florida
Press Association each year,
tied with the most of any
weekly newspaper in the
state. We are hoping enough
to bring home the designa-
tion as the Best Weekly in the
State for a record eighth year
in a row.
We won for a wide variety
of things, from Kim Cool's
story on the turtles and the
environment; to five awards
won by our wonderful pho-
tographer, Jeff Tavares; to
one won by Rob Broyles for a

' I was then informed by
our friends that the lady
doing all the singing was
paid nothing at all. I was
very surprised and frankly
couldn't believe that there
was no compensation for
working 20 days in a row
with two Sunday matinees
added because all the evening
shows were sold out.
In my opinion that just
not right, and I think that
anyone who paid $20 for.a
seat would have to agree.
Even if the, compensation
was $100 per show, that still
would-..ha.e only cost the
V.L.T. $2,200 for die entire
20-day run. At that it seems


like a very small price to pay
for someone's hard work and
talent.
We as a community
would be amiss not to call
them out on this. If any one
from management at the the-
ater wants to contact the
paper and give an explana-
tion for this policy, I'm sure
most of us would like to hear
it.
And don't dare say that the
performers are glad to do it

whole life and neither should

again won an award for an

County Commissioner
David Mills was talking to
Sertoma a couple of weeks
ago and said how times have
changed.
He mentioned the county
every year does a survey of
the concerns of its citizens.
Back when he started as
commissioner the No. 1 con-
cern of citizens was crime
and safety. That has changed
a lot, as people today say the
No. 1 concern today over-
whelmingly (33 percent) is
growth. Transportation is the
No. 2 concern with affordable
housing being third. Crime


now is No. 5.

If you are wondering if you
are hot or not, I suggest you
go to the Web site hotornot.
com and post a picture of
yourself and wait for the
public to rate you. Kind of a
fun site. I am not quite that
bold, even in the slimmer
version.

It is nice to see Border
Road basically complete
from Jacaranda west. This is
now a great way to avoid
Venice Avenue, particularly if
you come off the interstate
and you are going to Noko-
mis or the Waterford-Capri
Isles area.

Grant for lighting upgrades to benefit sea\
turtles in upcoming nesting season

Sarasota County has received an $8,617 grant to fund lighting
upgrades on coastal properties in exchange for commitments
from property management and associations to further sea turtle
awareness. The grant comes from the Florida-based Sea Turtle
Grants Program, a nonprofit organization that funds sea turtle
research and protection through the sales of Florida's Sea Turtle
specialty license plate.
"Every May through October, our local beaches become
important habitat for the largest congregation of sea turtle nesting
on the Gulf Coast of Florida," says Sarasota County Project
Scientist Kenya Leonard. "It's important to remember that with the
privilege of sharing our beaches with these creatures comes
great responsibility."
As head of the county's sea turtle program, Leonard urges
residents and businesses with properties along the water to pay
attention to these seasonal visitors so they may have a successful
nesting period.
One way is to adjust on-site lighting to reduce the amount of
"light pollution" that reaches the beach. "The cumulative glow
of manmade light is the leading cause of sea turtle deaths in
Florida," says Leonard. Tens of thousands of hatchlings are
killed by predators, exhaustion or starvation when they move into
artificially lit areas.
Another hazard is created when items are left on the beach
overnight. "When a female turtle bumps into an object that has
-been left on the beach at night, such as furniture, cabanas, boats
or toys, she instinctively abandons her attempt to nest and returns
to the water," adds Leonard.
For more information on sea turtles or to learn if a property
qualifies for funding for sea turtle lighting, contact the Sarasota
SCounty Call Center at (941) 861-5000 and ask for the Sea Turtle
Protection Program.

Citizens express concern


about prescribed burns


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER


Fear caused by the .2001
prescribed brushfire that
burned out of control was evi-
dent by the questions resi-
dents asked the panelists at a
Town Hall meeting Tuesday
night in North Port.
Will it happen again?
Can it be prevented?
What measures have been
taken to reduce the chance of
a prescribed bum getting out
of control?
I More than 20 residents
came to the meeting to hear
from state, county and city
fire officials.
The panelists included
Florida Division of Forestry
Supervisor Rick Christman,
Sarasota County Fire Chief
Chuck Johnston, North Port
Fire 'Chief William Taaffe,
Sarasota County Land
Manager Belinda Perry and
South Florida Water
Management District Land
Manager Kevin Love.
A balance is needed for
prescribed burns between
the environment and urban
areas, Johnston said,
Most of the residents
expressed concerns over los-
ing both their homes and the
wildlife.
The county no longer
employs contractors to do
prescribed burns since the
2001 fire, Johnston said.
"We formed a Firewise
coalition, consisting of fire
departments and private
landowners, who got together
to address the balance,"
Johnston said.
Christman said the pre-
scribed bums help preserve
the "natural Florida" so many
people moved here to enjoy.
Lessons were learned from
the 2001 fire, and now only
the Division of Forestry can
issue a permit to conduct a
prescribed bum.
Taaffe said there are many
items on a checklist that must
be completed prior to con-
ducting a burn, including
checking for last-minute
weather changes.
Smoke is also a major
problem and a concern to


residential areas, airports,
schools and highways,
Christman said.

One tool, three goals
Perry said most people fear
fire, and think of Bambi and
Smokey the Bear.
She said a prescribed bum
is just one tool used for land
management.
"The county has three
bum goals: public safety, pro-
vide native community for
the future and educating the
public," Perry said.
Some residents said they
have .seen gopher tortoises on
fire crossing the road.
"Prescribed burns chase
wildlife onto roads and they
become road kill," Warm
Mineral Springs resident Ray
Stoner said.
However, Perry 'said, ani-
mals have evolved with fires,

FORD BURR s
COLLIER
,of Venice, FL formerly of Elmira,
NY died April 2, 2006 at the age of
96. He was born December 22,
1909 in Pine City, NY.
Ford retired from New York
Telephone Company in 1972 after
43 years of service. He was a
member of the Telephone Pioneers
of America and was active in
Kiwanis.
Ford is survived by his wife of 60
years Ruth 0. Collier. He is also
survived by four children, Kent
(Christine) Collier of Pine. City,
NY, Jean (Gilbert Mobley) Collier
of Venice, FL, Jack Collier of
Severn, MD, and Nancy (Calvin)
Collier-Baker of Venice, FL. Ford
is also survived by five
grandchildren. Amy (Mickey)
Masker of Pine City, NY, Adam
(Melanie) Collier of Painted Post,
NY, Andrew (Danielle Holloway)
Collier of Elmira, NY, Laura
(Dave) Bench of Ft. Thomas, KY,
and Sara Dellacorino of Wesley
Chapel, FL, and five great-
grandchildren.
Ford and Ruth enjoyed 33 years of
wonderful retirement in Venice, FL
including 23 years in Bay Indies
retirement community,
There will be a celebration of
Ford's life at a later date at the
convenience of his family.
Out of loving concern for RKuth, the
family requests that all
contributions be made to the

"We have colonized
Florida, cut it up with 'roads
and development, which dis-
rupts the natural fire bene-
fits," Love said.
The panelists also talked
about the difference between
burning and manually cut-
ting the area.
"We can mow it, but noth-
ing works better than fire,"
Perry said. "It will affect the
environment, but it will be a
different environment."

the timely hitting of Evan
Rainford.

game, allowing just four hits
while striking out nine. He
also beat the Indians earlier in

double and Jordan Lucas fol-
lowed with a single to put run-
ners on first and third. Brett
Holte hit a liner down the left
field line to plate pinch-run-

3-2.
Lucas tried to get to third
on the throw home, but
Charlotte catcher Nick
Piccicacco fired back to short-
stop Robert Crews covering
third for a big out.
Bums (3-2) got the next two
outs to end the threat.
Pat Tufano of Charlotte hit
a home run to lead off the
game for the Tarpons.
Venice got the run back in
the top of the fourth. Jeremie
Cook singled and was sacri-
ficed to second by Trevor
Pelletier. Cook made it to third
on a wild pitch and scored on
a sacrifice fly by Salomone.
In the bottom of the sixth
with two outs, Evan Rainford
delivered a clutch double, dri-
ving in two runs for Charlotte
to make it 3-1.

Lady Indians explode on North Port


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Other teams might think
they can hang with the Venice
High girls softballers, but be
an inning, two innings or
three, it inevitably happens.
The Lady Indians explode.
It happened in the second
inning Friday night, as Venice
scored eight times to pave the
way to a 10-0 victory over vis-
iting North Port.
Venice ended regular sea-
son district play with a record
of 13-1. Overall, the Lady
Indians are 20-2.
North Port fell to 8-12 and
3-11.
The Lady Bobcats got out
of the first inning with only a
single allowed to Felicia
Taylor.
The second inning saw the
Lady Indians unleash six hits.
Throw in three errors, and it
made eight runs an easy task.
Heather Laird led off with a
single and Heather Boyts fol-
lowed with a hit. Stephanie.
Sullivan reached on an error
to load the sacks. Courtney
Bennett hit a ball to firs base.


The throw home was high
and Laird was safe, Making it
1-0.
Nikki Clark followed with a
RBI single. Taylor, the Lady
Indians' leading hitter this
season, ripped a two-run
double to make it 4-0.
Brittany Hipple ripped a
triple down the line to score
two more. Hipple scored on
another error to make it 7-0.
Kristen Bailey doubled to
plate another.
Venice scored another run
in the third as Molly Brandow
singled, moved into scoring
position on a groundout and
came around on a single by
Crystal Hess.
The 10-run rule came into
play in the bottom of the fifth
as Bennett ripped a run-scor-
ing single.
Boyts allowed just one hit
in five -innings work. She
struck out 11.
Before the game, all
seniors were honored.
Seniors include. Boyts,
Laird, Bailey, Bennett,
Brandow, Hess and Clements.
The Lady Indians travel to
Riverview Tuesday night to


try to avenge one of their loss-
es. The final home game will
be Wednesday against Bishop
Verot. The final regular sea-
son game will be Thursday at
the 17th Street Complex
against Cardinal Mooney.

Is change for better or worse?


It's that time again when
the golf world goes ga-ga
for Augusta National and
the Masters. And with this
most revered of tournaments
comes the annual gripe-fest
about lengthening the
course and tweaking the lay-
out.
"I can't compete on a
course like 'this," said three-
time winner Nick Faldo, while
Tiger added to the hubbub by
expressing his displeasure
about alterations to the sev-
enth hole and the par-three
fourth, which now measures
a massive 240 yards. Even the
usually level-headed Jack
Nicklaus chipped in with his
two cents worth, accusing
Augusta National of "ruining"
the course.
Admittedly, when Nicklaus
(who has six green jackets
hanging in his locker, so he
knows a thing or two) starts
talking trash, people tend to
follow suit.
But do the pros have a real-
istic axe to grind?
Players such as Fred Funk,
who can never be considered
a long hitter, works out his
strategy and gets on with it-
so no change there while
big bombers such as Tiger,
armed with the latest ad-
vances in equipment tech-
nology, simply crush the ball
from the tee and get up and
down with little discernible
adversity.

KEN HAGGERTY
GOLF COLUMNIST

For a view from the trench-
es, however, I asked head
pro of the Venetian Golf and
River Club in North Venice,
Chris Souchak, to chip in
with his thoughts. At nearly
7,000 yards, the course is
one of the longest in the area.
Unsurprisingly, Souchak is
firmly in the stop complain-
ing camp.
"I just think it's something
for the pros to talk about," he
says. "How can they com-
plain? They can't. In Augusta,
the conditions are premier.
"As for the length of the
course making it harder, I feel
that's a difficult stance to jus-
tify. Tour players are still play-


ing good golf shooting 66 or
67
or whatever, and the stroke
averages are basically the
same as they were ten years
ago longer courses don't
affect the pros' games at all
unlike the rest of us."
Enter the weekend golfer.
At this point, Souchak was
at pains to explain the woes of
the average golfer. Although
not an easy fix, the problem
is, he says, all in the mind.
"For the pros, an extra 500
yards isn't going to make a dif-
ference. They can easily reach
a long par-5 in two. And with
today's technology, the longer
holes shouldn't pose a prob-
lem for us mortals, either.
"But people come into the
pro shop here stuck in a
mindset which doesn't allow
them to face up to the chal-
lenge. A lot of people blow
length off the tee out of all'
proportion."
As for the Venetian, he
says, it's a very "user-friendly"
course that's both forgiving
and challenging.
Designed by Chip Howell
with the average golfer in
mind, according to Souchak
it's a course where you can
have fun while being tested
by the length.
"Our fairways are open
and forgiving and the sur-
rounding areas are less penal-
izing, so if you spray the ball,
you're not going to be in too


much trouble.
"But even though we're
one of the longer courses in
the area, the average golfer
can still be comfortable.
Again, it's all to do with tech-
nology.. Some of our better
players can hit in the 280-300
yard range, thanks to the lat-
est drivers on the market.
Now that's coming close to
Tiger country. So, if the PGA
Tour is witnessing a change in
course length to keep the
longer hitters on a tight leash,
there's no reason why the lat-
est course designs should
ignore the trend. After all, no
golfer wants to play a pitch 'n
putt having paid $90 for a
round."
And playability is what
everyone looks for.
Although Souchak doesn't
advocate change for changes
sake, he realizes it's inevitable.
"Too many people look at
the changes and feel the clas-
sic courses such as Pine Valley
are being ruined. They aren't
though. I don't feel adding
400 yards or so affects the
courses in anyway. The
changes don't take away too
much of the design. The feel
of the course will always stay
the same."
A change may not always
be as good as a rest, but it cer-
tainly makes life on the fair-
ways more' interesting and
surely that's the whole point
of golf.

Venice Police Explorer Post
86 is happening.
"I am proud to announce
that Venice has won the bid
for the next two years as
host post of the Florida
State Explorer Conference
and Competition," Venice
Police Officer and Senior
Explorer Advisor Dan Whit-
taker said.
The event is June 11-17.


"They'll be competing in
everything from searches, to
arrests, to crisis intervention,
to shooting, to how they
handle bomb threats," Whit-
taker said. "These events will
be held at different locations
throughout the city."
Whittaker said Venice has
hosted the Explorer delegates
for the last three years with
great success.
"We are expecting 500
people from all over the
state," Whittaker said. "This is


a great honor and will have
a great economic impact on
the business community for
that week."
Venice Explorers are also
becoming known throughout
the state and nation.
Last year, Explorer Chief
Ben Kern was elected state
president of The Florida
Association of Police Ex-
plorers.
Venice Explorers were es-
tablished in 1980. Members
are between the ages of


13-21. There are presently 31
young men and women in
the Venice Explorers.
Police Explorers are affil-
iated with the Boy Scouts of
America.
Not surprisingly, many Ex-
plorers go on to law enforce-
ment careers.
Whittaker, Officer Paul
Joyce and K-9 Officers Paul
Freeman and Troy Crepeau
are former Police Explorers.
Whittaker also said former
Venice Explorers have gone


on to become officers at the
Lakeland Police Department
and the Manatee County
Sheriff's Office.
Whittaker said Explorers
are loQking for corporate
sponsors to help offset some
of the costs of hosting the
June event.
"The money will be spent
on opening and closing
ceremonies, trophies and en-
tertainment," he said.
You can get more infor-
mation by calling Whittaker
at (941) 486-2444, Ext. 410.

You can e-mail Tommy
McIntyre at: tmcintyre@

Venice Explorer Chief Ben
Kern was elected state
president of The Florida
Association of Police Explorers
last year.

Celebrating a great and terrible beauty


BYCOURTNEYLINN
STAFF REPORTER


The 14th Annual Shark's
Tooth Festival supporting the
Special Olympics is being
held, as it always is, in an open
field out by the Venice Airport.


Steve Alten, author of the
bestseller "Meg," and Jim
Pendergraft know a great deal
about sharks.
And, as always, there is much
to see and do and plenty for
everyone to learn about the
fascinating world of the mag-
nificent creature the shark
Hidden deep as a nest of fos-
silized shark's teeth lies a
wealth of information about
sharks. In three grand tents,
there are different merchants


from all over the world selling
their fossils, most of which
they found themselves.
The Venice area is known
as the Shark's Tooth Capital of
the World because so many
shark's teeth wash up on the
beaches. Terry Lee, a vendor at
the event, offered more infor-
mation as to why this is so.
Near the shores of Venice is an
area where sharks used to
flourish.
"There isn't a shark's grave-
yard or anything," Lee said. It
all has to do with the water
levels in the ocean. Millions of
years ago, the water levels
were much higher than they
are now, and the Venice area is
now very shallow, in compari-
son to thousands of centuries
ago, making it ripe for washing
up the usually deeply buried
shark's teeth."
Jim Pendergraft, a former
diver for shark's teeth, elabo-
rated further on the subject.
Most of the shark's tooth fos-
sils at the festival date back to
the pre-historic Miocene time
period, which was roughly 15-
20 million years ago. Many of
the teeth washed up on the
shores, like Venice, are small,
about a centimeter in diame-
ter. However, many of the


teeth'at Pendergraft's booth
were about 3-5 inches in
diameter, and could have
grown up to 7 inches if they
hadn't fallen out. The shark
that would have had this tooth
would have had seven rows of
teeth this big, and would have
been about 65-70 feet long.
Pendergraft explained that
to find the really large teeth, it
is necessary to dive into some
of the darkest parts of the
ocean, and surprisingly, the
darkest parts of rivers to find
the teeth. Sharks will appar-
ently venture into rivers at
times. "It is so dark down
there," he said, "that a light
would only be drowned out by
the blackness. So, a diver look-
ing for shark's teeth must feel
for the teeth." Many of the fos-
silized teeth at the festival
were not found near Venice at
all; some were found near
South Carolina and in the
Mississippi river. Pendergraft
said he even found a big one
in a river in Ohio.
Pendergraft also said that
the nastiest shark now on the
planet is without a doubt, the
bull shark. Extremely predato-
ry in nature, bull sharks have
been known to attack people
the most. A close second to


The teeth that wash up on Venice beaches These teeth were found in by divers in very
are very small in comparison to ones found deep waters
in deeper waters.


the bull shark is the great
white. Most people are famil-
iar with how terrifying they
can be, but Pendergraft
expressed his concern about
the great white and what' is
happening to it globally.
"In many parts of the
world," Pendergraft said, "it is
still legal to kill great whites,
even though they are protect-
ed animals. Man is slowly
killing off these beautiful
creatures for their fins and
jawbones. People need to be
more aware that it is happen-
ing."
Steve Alten, author of the
bestseller, "Meg," was also at
the event. His book about a
pre-historic megladon shark,
the largest shark ever record-
ed, has recently been option-
ed for a movie. Alten offered
more information about
why shark's teeth seem to be
found in certain areas. In the
Miocene era, whales would
go into rivers in the ocean to
have their calfs. Sharks, like
the megladon, would come to
feed on the calfs, thereby los-
ing their teeth. After the last
ice age, the water levels on
earth rose, making these areas
full of shark's teeth.
Whether you come for the
food, the fun, the shopping,
or you justwant to learn more
about sharks, the Shark's
Tooth Festival offers great fun
for all and continues today
from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Children
younger than 12 are free.
Admission is $2 with free
parking. The festival benefits

Boosters supporting Sarasota
County Special Olympics. For

EIGHT WAYS TO REIN IN COSTS


Here are a few tips for
keeping energy costs low,
according to experts:
O Install a programma-
ble thermostat. It will
automatically switch settings
at different times of the day
as instructed so no heating
or cooling energy is wasted,
said Liza Bowles, general
manager of Newjport Part-
ners, a housing consulting
firm in Davidsonville, Md.
"They're so easy to use and
you don't have to remember
anything."
@ Consider zoned
heating arid cooling. This is a
more sophisticated tempera
ture control system that
heats or cools only occupied
areas, said Marshall Eames, a
green design expert, engi-
neer and environmental
science professor for DePaul
University in Chicago. "If
you're looking at the bigger
homes, then you should be
looking for things such as
zoned heating and cooling,"


* STAR
From page 8

has been getting more and
more supersized.
The size of new homes last
year leapt to 2,433 square feet
on average from 2,349 square
feet in 2004, according to the
National Association of Home
Builders (NAHB.) That's up.
from 2,095 square feet in
1995, 1,905 square feet in
1987 and a mere 1,660 in
1973.
Meanwhile, consumers
shelled out an average 13.6
percent more to heat their
homes this winter. The typical
U.S. household is expected to
pay $892 to heat the house
this season, up $107 from last


Eames said. "When the
house is built it should be
built with zones that can be
individually controlled."
@ Make sure insulation
is snug and plentiful to keep
heat from escaping. Target
walls, floors and heating
ducts.
O Look for Energy Star
homes if you're a homebuyer
and replace old appliances
such as refrigerators with
Energy Star products if
you're already a homeowner.
About 10 percent of new
homes meet Energy Star
qualifications set by the
Environmental Protection
Agency and U.S. Department
of Energy.
O Weather-strip doors
and windows. Caulk air leaks
around windows, ducts and
door frames, according to
Pacific Gas and Electric
Company. If it's time to
replace windows, look for
ones that have new super-
efficient low-emissivity


year, the Energy Department
said recently. Due to a
warmer-than-usual January,
the bill is expected to come in
$152 less than was projected
at the beginning of the
season.
The housing market
typically rewards square
footage in the appraisal price
while downplaying features
such as energy efficiency,
putting the focus on first costs
as opposed to lifetime costs,
Bowles said.
For example, the price of a
4,000 square foot house tends
to be based on the fact that
it's 4,000 square feet versus a
3,000 square foot house that's
very energy efficient, she said.
But consumers likely will
gravitate to smaller homes


glazing. Hicks said he could
feel cold air by standing near
his old windows. "With the
new ones, not only can't you
feel air, you can't even hear
fire trucks"when they go by.
It's given us some sound-
proofing as well.
S If you live in a
reasonably sunny area,
consider investing in solar
technology. Solar energy
systems that are integrated
with;the house may boost
neighborhood acceptance,
unlike stand-alone versions
that stick out on the roof or
in the yard, Bowles said.
0 Don't forget the
ducts. Ducts around cooling
or heating equipment should
be sealed and insulated,
Hicks said. "It's critical that
all the joints get sealed up,
and it's very easy and cost
effective as well."

SKeep the furnace
. clean and replace-the filter
regularly.


and more energy-efficient
ones in the next three to five
years, as the government now
does with its military housing
stock, she said.
"If energy prices remain
high and continue to rise, I
think we'll see some gradual
market shifts toward more
recognition of operation and
maintenance costs," Bowles
said.
Still, there's a risk that
people may forget this year's
spike quickly or count on
phenomena such as global
warming to cut their bills in
the future, she said.
"Until they really get socked
with the energy bills, maybe
they're not going to pay much

The refund check in the
amount of $1,000 was presented
at the event by Sarasota County
Building official Paul Radauskas
and Sarasota County Commis-
ioner Shannon Staub.
One of the most anticipated
features of the home are the ones

a hurricane-safe room. There are
double-pane insulated windows,

efficient. The home is also
equipped with hurricane fabric
shield panels.
The comfort of technology is
incorporated in the home with
advanced wiring techniques that


enable every room to be ready
for internet, music, cable and
phone connections, a state-of-
the-art home theater room with a
central control system, and
biometric fingerprint entry
system to name a few.
Aesthetic appeal is not sacri-
ficed, but accentuated in this
high-tech wonder, with many
elegant (and functional) architec-
tural accents.
This two-story home has more
than 2,700 square feet under air,
three bedrooms, three baths, a
study, bonus room and three-car
garage and is located at 7513
Trillium Blvd., in the Trillium
subdivision (off 1-75: exit east on'

sure to impress new homebuyers
interested in the brightest ideas
for better living.

Monologues

director of "The Vagina
Monologues" at the VLT.


The Venice Little Theatre stages Eve Ensler's

ground-breaking play beginning April 13

Vagina.
If you who choose to attend one of The Venice
Little Theater's performances of "The Vagina
Monologues," you will hear the word vagina at least
100 times.
The play is a series of monologues, based on inter-
views playwright Eve Ensler conducted with more
than 200 women. The monologues address women's
sexuality, violence against women, female empower-

"[In] many of the monologues, 'vagina' is actually


a word she [Ensler] uses to mean something else ...
it's not just a physical organ she's talking about. In
many of the monologues it's a symbol, a stand-in for
a women's soul, sometimes it's her sexuality, some-
times it's her heart ...' that's really what the mono-
logues are about," explains Linda MacCluggage,
director of VLT's performances of "The Vagina-
Monologues."
"The Vagina Monologues" was written and first
performed by Ensler in the basement of the Cornelia
Street Cafe in NewYork City in 1997.
That year the play won the Obie for playwriting.


The Obies have been awarded by The Village Voice
since 1955 and are considered the most prestigious
awards for off-Broadway plays.
The play's popularity grew, and on Feb. 10, 2001,
Oprah Winfrey, Melissa Etheridge and Jane Fonda
were among the women who performed "The Vagina
Monologues" at Madison Square Garden in New
York City.
"I was drawn to vaginas because of my own per-
sonal history, because of sexuality, because women's
empowerment is deeply connected to their sexuali-

Thoughts on death and potato salad


5B
SUNDAY
APRIL 9,2006


Heartburn can be a serious problem


How do you get from the
subject of dying to potato
salad? With my attention-
deficient mind, it is very easy.
You know, my friends,
there isn't one of us who does
not absorb a great deal of
knowledge in a lifetime. No
matter who we are, we just do!
For example, my friend,
Joanne, who lives here, tells
me that she never observed
her parents expressing love to
their children or to each
other, and made up her mind
that she was always going to
tell her children how much
she loved them. She did and
still does and they have
remained close to each other
and to her.
Cecelia, another friend
who also lives here, taught
primary school. I am sure she
taught the students hundreds
of things. One thing she told
me impressed me. She said if
you let a first-grader study
first at the subject he liked
best it helped him take more
interest in learning.
My friend Caroline tells me
she just learned that if you
mix cooked potatoes for pota-
to salad while they were still
warm it just works better.
When I was young, my sis-
ter taught me to hem a gar-


ment so that it was invisible
from the right side. So all of
these are just tiny examples of
things we just know.
We all know that in earlier
days families lived close
together and children learned
many things from aunts and
uncles that had been passed
on from grandparents. Now
what bothers me is when a
person with all this learned
knowledge dies, where does
all the knowledge go? I dunno!.
When my husband died I
wrote a long poem on just
that subject. I guess I hoped
some of his vast stored-up
information somehow went
to another soul.
Yeah, I know I am being too
serious today but while I am
at it, I am going to discuss
death a little more. Of course
it is sad to lose a loved one,
but when one is old, it seems
to be a natural sequence of
events and hopefully the
loved one is in a better place.
So why are we often so mor-
bid about the death of an
older person? Why do family
members try so hard to keep
alive a person who is termi-
nally ill or close to it?
When my mother was
dying, my brother would not
let any of her good friends see
her because of the way she
looked. I simply could not
understand. My sister said
"death is always horrible." I
guess I was naive but I simply
did not understand any of
their views.
Now to change the subject,
back to that potato salad bit.
Because like everything else, I
have opinions about that, too.
I suspect there are 5,000 new
opinions on how to make
potato salad. NMy tavorit.ito.,
mix regular salad dresUP


mean the kind that comes in a
jar like mayonnaise) with
mustard, sliced hard boiled
eggs and blend together while
warm. And Caroline is proba-
bly right it's better when
the well cooked and salted
potatoes are blended with the
dressing while still warm.
So for what it is worth, that
is my humble opinion about
the important subjects of
death and potato salad.

Dear Savvy Senior,
Can heartburn lead to other
serious health problems? My
husband, who's 54, has a belch-
ing problem along with occa-
sional heartburn and I would
like to help him. What can you


tell me? Ignoring the Burn
Dear Ignoring,
Heartburn is so common
in the United States today
that most people don't think
much about it but they
should. Ifs estimated that 40
million Americans experi-
ence heartburn at least once
a week, most of whom are
older than 45. Here's what
you should know.
Dangers of heartburn
Heartburn symptoms can
show up in a variety of ways
as a painful burning sen-
sation in the chest some-
times spreading to the throat,
a sour or bitter taste in the
mouth, frequent belching,
coughing, wheezing or a sore


throat. If your husband is
experiencing some of these
symptoms at least twice a
week, he needs to see a doc-
tor. Frequent heartburn
symptoms may indicate gas-
troesophageal reflux disease
(GERD), which if left untreat-
ed, can lead to serious health
problems such as asthma,
trouble swallowing, debilitat-
ing sleep problems, Barrett's
esophagus, esophageal can-
cer and more.

Lifestyle remedies
Depending on the fre-
quency and severity of the
symptoms, there are several
things you can do to prevent

Diet changes: Certain.
foods can trigger heartburn
symptoms like citrus fruits
and juices, tomatoes and
tomato products, fatty foods,
chocolate, garlic, onions,
spicy foods, mints, alcohol,
coffee and sodas. Keep a food
diary to track which foods
cause you the most problems
and avoid them.
Eating habits: Eat slower
and take smaller portions.
Having a full stomach can
cause acid reflux. Also avoid
exercising, bending or lying
down for two hours after eaitL
ing. And don't eat at least 2 to
3 hours before bedtime.
Monitor your meds:
Drugs used to treat arthritis
pain, asthma, osteoporosis,
depression, insomnia, high
blood pressure and more can
cause heartburn. Consult
your doctor.
*Weight management:
Being overweight is a big
contributor to heartburn
because the excess pounds
put pressure on your
abdomen, pushing up your
stomach and causing acid to
back up into your esophagus.
A 10 percent drop in weight
can improve heartburn
symptoms.
Stop smoking: Smoking
can increase stomach acid
and weaken the valve that
prevents stomach acid from
entering the esophagus.
Loosen your belt:
Clothes that fit tightly around
your waist puts pressure on
your abdomen and can
cause heartburn.
Relax. More than 50 per-
cent of heartburn sufferers
say stress increases their
heartburn.
Sleeping tips: To help
keep the acid down in your
stomach while you sleep, ele-
vate the head of your bed six
to eight inches by placing
blocks under the legs or
insert a wedge between your
mattress and box spring to
elevate your body from the
waist up. Sleeping on your
left side may also help keep


the acid down.
Medical remedies
If the lifestyle adjustments
don't solve the problem,
there are a variety of over-
the-counter and prescription
medications that can help.
Talk to your doctor about
which one is best for you:
Antacids: These provide
fast, short term relief by neu-
tralizing the acid in your
stomach. You know them as
Alka-Seltzer, Maalox,
Mylanta, Rolaids and Turns.
H-2 Blockers: Available
both over-the-counter and
prescription strength, H-2
blockers (Pepcid, Tagamhet
and Zantac) reduce how
much acid your stomach
makes but may not be strong
enough for serious symp-
toms.
Proton-pump inhibitors
(PPI): If you have frequent
and severe heartburn symp-
toms, PPIs are long-acting
prescription medications
that block acid production
and allow time for damaged-
esophageal tissue to heal.
They include Nexium,
Prevacid, Prilosec, Protonix
and Aciphex. Prilosec is also
available over-the-counter.
Surgical option: An alter-
native to drug treatment is
antireflux surgery, a proce-
dure that tightens the leaky
valve so gastric fluids can't
wash back up into the esoph-
agus.

Caregiving from afar
Dear Savvy Senior,
How can I help take care of
my 80-year-old parents that I
live 600 miles from? I've tried to
get them to move closer to me
but they are determined to stay
in their own house. Any sugges-
tions? Miles Apart
Dear Miles,


There are more than 7
million long-distance care-
givers in the United States
today those who care for
an aging family member who
lives at least an hour away.
Here are some tips and
resources that may help you.
Get informed
Before a crisis arises, get
your parent's financial, med-
ical and legal information
like their Social Security
numbers, bank accounts,
health insurance plans, med-
ications they're taking,
names and numbers of doc-
tors, hospitals, and clinics
... involved'in their care, wills
and advance directives, all of
which might be needed in an
emergency. To help you orga-
nize this information, down-
load a free checklist at
aarp.org/families (click on
"locate valuable docu-
ments").
Know their needs
To help your parents
remain independent and safe
you need to get a handle on
their situation. For example
(on your next trip home), be
sure they are eating regularly,
paying their bills on time and
keeping up with their med-
ications, or have you noticed
a change in their memory,
personal hygiene or an
unusually messy house.
Some other assessments to
help you know their needs
include:
Medical examination: A
thorough medical evaluation
can help determine your par-
ent's physical and mental
needs (go with them if you
can).
Check their driving: Get
a free worksheet called
"Warning Signs for Older
Drivers" at
thehartford.com/talkwith-
olderdrivers.
Inspect the house: Get a
free home safety checklist for
seniors at

ent's needs and willingness
to relinquish control, here
are several tips that can help
them and you:
Care helpers: Put togeth-
er a list of people who can
check in on your parents reg-
ularly, such as nearby family
or friends, neighbors, clergy,
mail carrier, gardener, etc. Be
sure they have your contact
information so they can con-
tact you if they detect any-
thing unusual.
Local resources: Most
communities offer a range of
free or subsidized services
that provide seniors with
basic needs such as home
delivered meals, tion, senior companion ser-
vices and more. To find out
what's available call the Area
Agency on Aging in you par-
ents community. To get the
local number, call (800) 677-
1116.
Money management:
You can ease their financial
chores by arranging for direct
deposit of their Social
Security and other pension
checks, and set up automatic
payments for routine bills
like utilities. Also, consider
asking your parents to give
you power of attorney to
handle her financial matters,
if needed. If they're reluctant,
another option to consider is


to hire a professional daily
money manager who can
come in once or twice a
month to help them pay bills,
decipher health insurance
statements and balance their
checkbook. Costs range
between $25 and $100 per
hour. To learn more visit
aadmm.com or call (814)
238-2401.
Emergency response: If
you're parent lives alone,
consider a personal emer-
gency response system,
which is a small transmitter
button carried or worn by
your parent that allows them
to call for help 24 hours a
day. This service costs
around $200 for the device
and $15 to $30 per month.
See
seniorcitizens.com/k/eprs.ht
ml.
Professional help: If your
parents need ongoing help,
hire a home-care provider
that can help with basic
homemaking chores, person-
al care or medical problems.
Costs vary around $40 per
hour and up. To find a home-
care agency, contact your
parent's doctor or social
worker at the local hospital.
Another option is to hire a
geriatric care manager -
someone who can assess
your parents' needs, hire


home-care services and :
monitor their care. This ser-
vice costs around $300 for
the initial consultation and
$75 to $150 an hour there-
after. To locate a professional
visit caremanager.org or call
(520) 881-8008. Medicare
does not cover either of these
services but they may be cov-
ered if your parents have
long-term care insurance or
qualify for Medicaid.
Government assistance:
Look into government pro-
grams (benefitscheckup.org)
that may help your parents
pay for drugs, health care,
utilities and other expenses.

The National Institute on
Aging offers a free new book-
let, So Far Away: Questions
for Long Distance Caregivers,
that you can order at

AOE has space on some of its most popular itineraries


Edged with plants, this brick pathway leads to the entrance of

long narrow design in which all rooms open onto one long cor-
ridor.:'


One of several church cemeteries to be found in downtown
Charleston. This one is said to be haunted and can be seen on
most of the city's 15-plus ghost tours.

chunk that.:appedrs to 'teeter :

mass.
Other formations invite
Rorschach-style guessing
games, like playing "What
does that cloud remind you
of?" only with stones. One
outcropping called Nefertiti,
for example, resembles a
regal figure in a headdress.
Throughout the park,
you'll also find the arches it is
named for, some- 2,000 of
them. Their rainbow-shaped
half-circles are an amateur
photographer's dream, creat-
ing natural frames for viewing
the sunset or the snowcapped
La Sal Mountains in the dis-
tance. The largest stone arc is
Landscape Arch, about 300
feet wide at the base and 77
feet tall. Others worth seeing
include the Delicate Arch,
Double Arch, the Double 0
Arch, the Skyline Arch and the
North and South Windows.
Arches is a relatively small
national park, and you can
see most of the noteworthy
formations in a half-day of
driving. Easy hikes lead from
parking areas to the rocks. A
closer look at the arches pro-
vides a fun lesson in perspec-
tive; it's hard to estimate their
height from a distance, and
up close they seem taller than
you expected.

- But any visit to Arches
must be topped off with an
excursion from Moab. Our
half-day whitewater trip was-
truly enjoyable and a perfect
introduction to the sport.
Adrift Adventures takes chil-
dren as young as 5, which not
all whitewater tours will do.
We were issued life jackets
and boarded a bus for a 20-
minute drive to a launch site
on the river. The guide in our
inflatable boat provided an
entertaining travelogue as we
floated past more red rock
scenery, the luxury Sorrel
River Ranch Resort, and sites
used for filming Hollywood
movies, from old Westerns to
recent comedies like "City
Slickers II."
The rapids are wildest in
May and June, but we visited
in late summer when the
water is lower and tamer. No
one was flipped in the water
on our trip, but no one stayed
dry either. We were splashed,
swirled and bumped by the
rapids, and the guide encour-
aged passengers to jump in
for a dip if they wanted. We
also had a friendly water fight


with other boats in our group.'
We left Moab energized
about the rest of our trip. And
we vowed to come back for
more adventures soon.

Proper use of 'enormity' may

not bewhat you think


JUNE CASAGRANDE
A PLEASE


There's a copy of the "At-
lantic" in my bathroom. I
don't actually read the maga-
zine. I'm not even sure how it
got there. But I do like the idea
of having one in plain view,
you know, to impress the
plumber.
The magazine happened
to be opened to the book
review section titled, in what
is almost an understatement,
"The Critics." In a roughing
up of the author of "Upon the
Altar of the Nation: A Moral
History of the Civil War," one
sentence caught my eye.
Professor Harry S. Stout's
book "is yet further proof that
the professoriat has no busi-
ness teaching the country's
youth how to write," Ben-
jamin Schwarz writes. "The
diffuse, 550-plus-page tome is
riddled with sloppy diction
(he write's of the 'enormity' of
the achievement of abolition)
and ham-handed prose."
Ouch.
If you're like me, right now
you're probably standing over
the sink with a toothbrush in
your mouth thinking, "Uh oh.
What was that bit about 'enor-
mity'?"
Welcome to this week's col-
it nq-gn. "critics' nitpicks" -


word choices that can land
even the most literate among
us in hot water with language
snobs.
Spotting misuses of the
word "enormity" is great sport
for certain snobby types. And
though I love to disagree with
the hard-liners, in this case
they're right.
"Enormity," my usage
books agree, is not about big.
It's about bad.
"It wasn't always that way,
etymologists will be quick to
point out, but these days,
educated writers and speak-
ers reserve 'enormity' for the
meaning, 'great evil or
wickedness,' writes Bill Walsh
in "Lapsing Into a Comma." "I
think the distinction should
be observed."
Strunk and White agree. So
do the editors of the "Chicago
Manual of Style."
When you're looking for a
word that means "bigness"
but won't make you sound
like an elementary-school
student, the books recom-
mend "enormousness."
"Magnitude" is a popular sub-
stitute as well.
Another word you're likely
to see or hear among the
Atlantic-reading, New Yorker-
,mentioning set is "effete." And
when you do, you're likely to
hear it used wrong.
According to "Garner's
Modern American Usage,"
effete "has traditionally mean
'worn out, barren, exhausted'
... but today owing in large
measure to vice president
Spiro Agnew who used the
phrase 'effete corps of impu-
dent snobs' writers have
made it a victim of slipshod

extension, often using it to
mean 'sophisticated and
snobbish.'... Still others use it
as a genteelism denoting
weakness or (surely because
the words look similar) effem-
inacy."
So Ryan Seacrest may
seem effete after a long night
of shooting 'American Idol,"
but you can't really call him
"effete" when he's bright-
eyed, dressed to the nines and
hugging all the male contes-
tants.
Unlike "enormity" and
"effete," the word "myriad"
actually gives you an oppor-
tunity to stick it to the stick-
lers. A lot of usage mavens
believe that it's wrong to say,
"a myriad of," as in, "The
councilman discussed a myr-


iad of problems." The "a" and
"of" should be nixed, a lot of
sticklers say. Thus, they argue,
it should be, "He discussed
myriad problems." In fact, I
believed this too until, oh, say
10 minutes ago. Now I see it's
not that cut and dried.
Though all my books agree
the latter usage is better,
there's nothing grammatically
wrong with "a myriad of."
That's because "myriad" is a
noun as well as an adjective,
so if you want to bait some
grammar snobs, have at it.

WELL-BEING


'Don't be afraid' when you meet a deaf person


I







GLENNA J. BIGGAM



One of my American Sign
Language students asked me
to write an article about my
experiences as a deaf woman
to help people understand
the world from a deaf person's
perspective.
Being deaf is just part of
who I am. I can do any
thing you can do some
things I can even do better. I
just can't hear.
I have taught ASL for many.
years, including adult evening
courses, even teaching my
colleagues at work during
lunchtime. Recently, I taught
a 10-week session, January to
March, at the Commun-
ity Center for the Deaf and
Hard of Hearing's Ven-
ice office on Cypress Avenue.
I was born deaf and, thanks
to my parents, developed an


TA


I.,"


independent lifestyle. I drive
to work like everyone else, I
work like everyone else, and I
play just like everyone else.
My parents brought me
from my hometown of Can-
ton, Ohio, to the Clarke
School for the Deaf in North-
ampton, Mass., where speech
and lip-reading are the recog-
nized forms of communica-
tion. Clarke is an "oral
school," which teaches
speech and lip-reading over
sign language.
After graduation, I partici-
pated in and made friends in
both the hearing and deaf
worlds. Helping deaf people
communicate are tools like
the VP (videophone), the Vid-
eo Relay Service and the TTY
(teletypewriter) and pagers.
The relay service works with a
speaking operator who tells
the hearing party what the
deaf party is typing. The
videophone like a two-way
camera, showing on a com-
puter screen an ASL inter-
preter who speaks to the
hearing party on one end of
the phone and signs the re-
sponses to the deaf person.
You can even leave a mes-
sage via the computer. It is
fantastic.
Knowing how to read lips is
helpful when working with
the hearing community. But I


had to learn ASL as an adult in
order to communicate with
the many deaf people who
grow up using that language.
I am active in deaf socials,
which bring together deaf
people who have learned ASL
in a variety of settings. and
schools, and am now com-
fortable in the "oral" or
"hearing" world of my family
and friends, as well as using
ASL to communicate with my
deaf friends.
ASL interpreting is so very
important, and can help deaf
people in all aspects of soci-
ety. ASL interpreters are cru-
cial, for example, in doctors'
offices, and to let deaf people
know about meetings and
events that they can partici-
pate in.
I am so grateful that my
church, the Bahia Vista Men-
nonite Church in Sarasota,
has an ASL interpreter who is
admired by the deaf and
hearing congregants alike.
There are some people who
have learned ASL just from
church class.

Communicating with deaf people


Don't be afraid when you
see a deaf person in hallways,
stores or places; don't be
afraid or embarrassed to say
"hello." Patience is the key to
communicating effectively
with deaf people. You can
communicate easily with
them when you remember
these few simple "Dos and
Don'ts."
DOs
* Speak slowly.
* Get the person's attention
by tapping them. Don't call
their name.
* Stand in front of the person
when speaking.
* Use facial expressions.
* Give clues when you
change the subject.
* Rephrase when you aren't
understood.
* Be patient, positive and


relaxed.
* Talk to the hearing-
impaired person, not about
them.
* Ask the hearing-impaired
person how you can improve
communication.
* Askto be taught simple
signs like "good morning" or
"good night."
DONTs
* Don't yell.
* Don't be afraid of commu-
nicating in sign language.
* Don't feel embarrassed to
laugh at yourself if you make
a mistake.
* Don't chew gum or food
when speaking.
* Don't put material in front
of your mouth.
* Men: Beards and mustaches
make lip-reading almost
impossible.

appointment (94:


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist


Q. My mother was recently
fit with two, digital hearing
aids but was never given
any testing to determine if
they are working right.
Isn't some follow up testing
required?
A. There are'numerous post
fitting tests which should be
performed and are part of the
verification process. To what
extent these tests are
performed depends on who
fit the hearing aid initially.
Most quality audiology
clinics perform two sets' of
verification tests, objective
and subjective, Objective
testing consists of performing
real ear measurements in
order to record the response
of the hearing aid at various
input levels. If real ear
measurements are not
obtained, there is no way to
insure the programming of
the instrument is appropriate
for the patient's hearing loss.
Subject testing is when a
patient is asked to identify
different words and sounds
with their hearing aids on and
set appropriately. These tests
are conducted in quiet and
noisy environments to
measure how well a patient
can hear in various
surroundings. If your mother
purchased he' instruments
from a' quality clinic, these
tests were performed and you
are entitled to a copy of the
results. If these tests were not
performed then your mother
needs to be seen by the
Audiologist at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers
as soon a possible at 492-
4327 to insure that the
instrument she has purchased
is the correct solution to her
hearing problem and will be
able to serve her needs into
the future.

dumb," Dud said, "and I real-
ize that, but Steve does have a
point. I mean, we think in
terms of time ..."
Doc groaned.
... yea, verily ... time and
space and the continuum
thereof, henceforth and


forevermore. That's why,
when our friend Steve here
thought about Saturday, it
was as though Saturday lay in
the future, where things are to
happen that we, as mere mor-
tals, are loath to know... "
"Dud," said Steve, "you
been watching Nova again?"
Dud blushed. "It was a
good show. It concerned the
string theory and fusion and
the way all these marvelous
things come together to make
up our lives and Einstein and
the total something-or-other.
I forget all the nuances, but it


was pretty good. Had to do
with the Big Bang and all that
stuff. ,Do you realize that
whdn- you look at a star at
night, it might not be there?
That star might have blown
up and died a million years
ago.
"So how can you tell if it's
still there?" Steve asked.
"Have no idea," Dud said.
Steve grinned and tossed
off the last of his coffee. "Well,
I'd better be getting along. I'm
running late as it is."
"So what you up to today,
Steve?" said Doc.


"Getting ready for Sunday."

F3ES 3I1


There's joy to be found oui


LARRY ALLAN
HP F AIR J.i^-.'

Black bears need some
yvilderness space to survive.
The past couple of months
have been a busy time for
Slack bears this is when
birthing usually occurs.
Generally, there are two cubs
in a litter, but they've been
known to have as many as
five youngsters at a time. The
cubs are born weighing about
7 ounces. A lot of growth has
taken place between birth
hnd now.
Black bears, whose scien-
tific name Ursus americanus
recognizes this species'
uniqueness to North Amer-
ica, live in many parts of this
country, including Florida's
forests and swamps. Roadless
wilderness areas provide
important habitat for both
black bears and Florida pan-
-thers, two of our state's last
remaining large wild animal
species. "In many regions,"
one conservation biologist
stated, "roadless areas are the
last strongholds for species
ranging from salmon to
bears."
When I came upon a tiny
black bear and watched him
attempt to climb a tree for the
first time, I was'very careful to
keep \'a'ich' ber minl'oulder
for his mama. Black bear

This little black bear cub didn't get very far up the tree on his
first climbing attempt.-


mothers are very good par-
ents, and they're very protec-
tive as well. I certainly didn't
want that mother stalking up
behind me because I looked
like I might be bothering her
baby! But it was fun watching
that little one.
By the way, it was a little
Southern black bear cub that
was protected by President
Teddy Roosevelt and became
the inspiration for our pre-
'ent'-dlaNy' Teddy be'rs. While
almost all black bears in


Florida are, indeed, black, out
west they can be "cinnamon"
brown, "blue" or even white,
as they are in one area of
British Columbia, Canada.
Unfortunately black bears
are now a threatened species
in many parts of their natural
habitat. Their decline in num-
bers is due to the loss of habi-
tat and to poaching by
hunters. Can't you imagine a
* bear thinking, "We need help.
You build"hdge 'mall" big
mansions and giant high-rise


tdoors

condos. Can someone please
build us a forest? A forest we
can call our own?"
If you're concerned about
the deterioration of habitat
for these wonderful creatures,
you might want to contact the
Black Bear Conservation
Committee, Defenders of
Wildlife, The .Vilderness
Society or the National
Wildlife Federation. They're
working to provide habitat for
black bears, and other
wildlife, restoring wetlands
and preventing the urbaniza-
tion of forested areas.
Right now, these groups
are mobilizing people to sup-
port a bipartisan bill in the
U.S. Congress that reinstates
the Roadless Rule. Passed in
2001, the law generally pro-
hibits road construction and
logging across 58.5 million
acres. That's less than one-
third of all national forest
lands. President Bush sus-
pended the rule shortly after
taking office. Then, in May
2005, the administration
repealed the law.
If you want to help protect
vital habitat for black bears,
Florida panthers and other
threatened species, please
contact your U.S. senators
and your congressional rep-
resentative.
Ask them to cosponsor HR
3563 or a senate version of
that bill to reinstate the
Roadless Rule.
Maybe that will help en-
sure that you, your children
and your grandchildren will
be lucky enough to watch the
antics of a very young black
bear learning to live its life in
the wild as I did.

When it's right, it's right: It was fate


COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER


Sometimes, the best things
that happen to you are the
ones that you do not plan.
When I first met my cat
Evie, I had no interest or
designs in having another cat
in the house. Little did I know
that our chance meeting
would be one that would
change my world forever.
I met Evie at my veterinar-
ian's office. I was there to pick
up some cat food for my boy-
friend's aging cat, Banjo, who
can eat a special diet found
only at the vet's. Evie was sit-
ting inside a cage set up
specifically for cats available
for adoption, playing with
anyone who would walk by.
As I neared the cage, she hap-
pily tried to paw at my pants.
I carefully stuck my finger
in the cage to touch her soft
fur and pet her diamond-
shaped head.
She promptly bit me.
Then she looked up at me


as though she were laughing
on the inside, and gave me a
look that read, "Do it again."
How could I resist thd little
kitten who was stuck in a cage
and who only wanted a
minute of my time to play
with her?
One of the vet techs must
have seen me playing with
Evie (the cat's name was pre-
viously Oreo. It was changed
because Oreo is a mouthful.)
The tech said I could take the
kitten out of the cage to play
with it.
It was all downhill from
there.
Evie and I played for a
minute or two, and then I
held her and touched her
fluffy kitten fur to my face, to
which she decided to play
with my earring. We were
having the best time until the
vet tech told me my cat food
was ready to be picked up;
the spell was broken. I real-
ized I would be leaving soon,
and this bundle of enthusi-
asm would be staying behind
if I didn't do something.
I left Evie to my earring,
and I contemplated what
bringing a new kitten into my
home might entail. First, I
had to talk to my boyfriend,
whom I live with, to see if he
would even want another cat
living with us. Second, I had
to determine whether our
older cat could handle having
a kitten around. And, third,
even though I would have

diva.


paid a million dollars to have
Evie come home with me, I
needed to know if I had
enough money to care for a
kitten.
So, first I asked my vet if
older cats took to kittens or if
they had problems. The gen-
eral consensus being good, I
decided to press on. Next, I
checked my bank account.
Evie would cost me 70 dollars.
The required shots and spay-
ing were free. Finally, I had to
call my boyfriend.
I asked him how he would
feel about having another cat
in the house,
'Absolutely not," he said.
There was no way he
would want another kitten in


the house.
I decided to put my foot
down.
"If she doesn't come home
with me, I will be staying with
her," I said.
He relented, and before I
knew it, my boyfriend and I
had a new family member.
To this day, I consider Evie
my best impulse decision
ever.
Adopted pets, especially
those found in shelters, are
one of life's best joys. All they
ask is love, and they quickly
become some of the most
loving members of your fami-
ly.

GRACE JOYCE
PET COLUMNIST

Each spring, as the weath-
er warms and the flowers
bloom we in the animal res-
cue business see a tremen-
dous increase in the number
of homeless and abandoned
animals in our community.
Spring signals the start of "lit-
ter season" when homeless
and abandoned animals
breed and produce offspring.
This puts a terrible strain on
the already crowded shelters
within our community. This
year is one of the worst so far
as we already have so many
homeless kittens in residence
and we know many more are
on the way.
When animals have not


been spayed or neutered they
are free to breed, making the
problem that much harder to
solve. Each year, thousands of
animals are killed in Sarasota
County, many because the
shelters have simply run out
of room. It is estimated that
40,000-50,000 feral (wild) cats
live in Sarasota County al-
ready and as more animals
are turned out during the
Spring this number contin-
ues to escalate.
We need your help to end
the terrible crisis of unwanted
pets and here are some sim-
ple things each of us can do to
help.
If every pet owner would
help by taking responsibility
for their pets 1) spay or neuter
every animal in your care to
end unwanted litters, 2) find a
loving home for your un-
wanted pets, instead of aban-
doning them on the streets
and 3) visit your local adop-
tion center or shelter when
you're looking to adopt a new
pet. Together we can stop ani-
mal over-population.
If you have an animal that
you can no longer care for,
please consider the following:
* If you're a seasonal resident
who has been feeding a stray
animal it may be possible for
you to take the pet with you


when you leave. If you're not
able to care for the pet, per-
haps a friend or family mem-
ber can.
* Talk to neighbors and
friends before you leave and
try to find a suitable home or
caretaker.
* Try pet-sharing. Many pet
owners share their pets with
other families so while they are
seasonal residents in another
area, the pet is taken care of by
their "second" family.
* Ask a local animal shelter for
help. Most traditional shelters
will take any animal and
many no-kill shelters will
accept your pet as space
allows. Providing a donation
is a great way to help the shel-
ter offset the costs to care for
the animal. No-kill shelters
will give your pet a home for
life, while traditional shelters
may euthanize the animal if
space becomes an issue. No
matter how uncomfortable
you may be with the thought
of a shelter situation it is
the only humane option.
* If you have a pet that you no
longer want, please do not
abandon your pet in the
street! Many owners say they
would rather turn out an ani-
mal than take it to a shelter.
They feel the animal has a
better chance at survival or


adoption in this way. This isq
simply not true. In the wild,4
your pet will have to fend off
starvation, disease, attacks
and other horrible circum-"
stances they would never face:
if taken to a shelter. Ifyour pet
has not been spayed or:
neutered there is a great
chance they will continue to,
breed, which only adds to the'
overall problem.
There is so much each of
us can do to keep the home
less animal population undet
control. If you have a pet that
has not been spayed oif
neutered, I urge you to do so
immediately. No-cost and
low-cost programs are availed
able and there are many ani:
mal organizations ready tq
assist. The Animal Rescue
Coalition has a wonderful
program in place and you ca6
reach them at 957-1955. And
as always, the volunteers a(
St. Francis Animal Rescue are
available to answer questions
at 492-6200.

down.
The planning for the event
began last summer when
artistic director of the GCMC,
Philip Alexander, contacted
the director in Miami, Gary
Keating to see if the two cho-
ruses could perform together.
"Mr. Keating was immediate-
ly receptive to the idea," said
Alexander, "and thus our col-
laboration began." It was
decided that each chorus
would make plans to join the
other chorus during their
annual spring concerts. So,
the chorus from Sarasota
went to Miami on March 18
and 19, and the Miami chorus
will be coming to Sarasota the
weekend of May 6. The con-
cert is to be performed at The
Players Theatre, 838 North
Tamiami Trail, and is entitled,
"From Here to Miami."
Alexander also stated that
"tickets are already selling

VAGINA from page I B
ty. And, I'm obsessed with
women being violated and
raped, and with incest. All of
these things are deeply con-
nected to our vaginas," Ensler
said during an interview with
the Web site women.com.
Ensler says as she began
interviews with women
about their vaginas, their sex-
uality and sexual violence,
many of the women were
reluctant to talk.
In many interviews over
the years and in her book,
"The Vagina Monologues:.
The .V-Day Edition," Ensler
speaks of feeling chosen to
write the play and watching it
become a movement of sorts.
"I don't think I had much
to do with 'The Vagina
Monologues.' It possessed
me. I see now that I was a
prime candidate. I was a play-
wright. I had for years written
plays based on interviews
with people. I was a feminist.
I had been violated sexually
and physically by my father. I
had exhibitionist tendencies.
I. have been known to. out-
rage, and I longed with all of
my heart to find a way back
into my vagina," Ensler writes
in her introduction to her
book."
The play has been per-
formed in 80 countries and
translated into 45 languages.
Because of the language

logues really

women and
the hatred _'

sexuality."
The play
does bring
to the fore-
front issues
such as
rape, incest
and the sys-
tematic use
of rape as a
weapon of
war. ,
MacClug-
gage seems to have more
excitement than concern'
over the staging of the play in
Venice.
She comments, however,
on what can be the contro-
versial nature of the play.
"Communities have had a
hard time with the name.
Some newspapers have had
a difficult time running an,
ad or talking about it in their
columns," says Mac-
Cluggage.
The play is typically staged
with three or more women


woman's story.
When 'asked what she
hopes her audiences will get
from the play, MacCluggage
begins tentatively, "I hope
they go someplace with the
play that they've felt they've
never gone before."
MacCluggage believes
Ensler may have decided to
title the play "The Vagina
Monologues" to get people's.
attention because, in fact,
many of the monologues deal
with other 'subjects. She
thinks that more than any-


ered by breaking some bonds
and breaking some bound-
aries that inhibit us, hold us
down, keep us feeling bad
about ourselves," she
explains.
VLT Artistic/Managing
Director Murray Chase ex-
plains why he chose Mac-
Cluggage to direct "The
Vagina Monologues." "Linda's
smart," he says, "I felt the
show would get the research
and the care it needed to be
done in a way that wasn't just
the standard way it had been


different, a lit-
tle different
look."
Chase saw
the play when
it was per-
formed at the
Van Wezel
Performing
Arts Hall in
Sarasota in
May 2003.
The play was
chosen for per-
formance at
the VLT more
than a year ago
by a commit-
tee of commu-
nity volunteers
who work with
VLT staff on
play selection.
Chase feels
"The Vagina
Monologues"
is an "impor-
tant piece" and
adds he is looking forward to
MacCluggage's dramatic
treatment of the play rather
than the standard reading
presentation.
Chase believes "The
Vagina Monologues" is worth
seeing. "There are lots of
plays [in which] I'm not
always sure what they're say-
ing when I'm done with it,
when I've watched it, but if I
stay intrigued and have been
involved, it's got something to
say. Then it's worth seeing."
VLT plans to inform audi-


"It's the message behind
it," says Linda Neckel White,
"It was started as a message
about violence against
women ... and bringing]
awareness to that issue is
important to me."
All seven of the actors are
enthusiastic about Mac-
Cluggage's theatrical and
ensemble approach to the
play.
There appears to be a
bond among the seven
women who will perform this
play and plenty of laughter as
they are interviewed, but they
also have a strong belief in the
message they will bring their
audience.
The actors nod in agree-
ment as Brin talks about the
importance of doing the play.
"It's a really good way to reach
people," she says. '"And it
shows them that the various
parts of the female anatomy
are not something that
should be laughed at or
talked down about. This is a
way to bring it out into the
open. It's a beautiful thing:
I'm very happy about it."
The women also talk about
the show not being about
men-bashing.
Melba Baez-Officer recalls
seeing a letter to the editor in
the Gondolier Sun in which
the writer described the play
as "vulgar and anti-male."'
[Editor's note: The letter
appeared in the Feb. 12, 2006,
edition.]

and subject matter, the play
may be disturbing for many
in Venice, a town whose aver-
age resident was born in
1938, a time in history when
women,, in the words of
Gloria Steinem in a forward
to Ensler's V-Day edition
book, referred to their vaginas
as "down there."
The Venice Little Theatre
performance
MacCluggage has been
involved in theater for 12
years. This is her directorial
debut at the VLT.
To say MacCluggage is
aware of the sensitive nature
of the material and language
of the play is obvious.
"First of all, I think it's a.
very funny play. It's obvious-
ly very provocative and I
understand how it can
offend people because it
uses language and talks
about subjects we don't
readily do," she says.
MacCluggage acknowl-
edges the play is much more
than entertaining: "I think it
celebrates women; it does so
in a very frank and bawdy
way, and it also has a very


sitting on stools on a stage
against a black background
reading the monologues.
MacCluggage is planning a
different approach.
In what she describes as an
"ensemble" style, she has cast
seven local women to per-
form "The Vagina Mono-
logues."
Ranging in ages from 23
to "60 plus," the cast in-
cludes Melba Baez-Officer,
Cael Barkman, Dianne Brin,
Joanne Costelli, Nancy
Hoover, Linda Neckel White
and Diana Vytell. The stage
manager is Earl Baumruck,
with costume design by
Nicholas Hartman and
sound design by Dorian
Boyd.
In casting her play,
MacCluggage wanted to cast
"regular women" in addition
to experienced actors. One of
the actors will be performing
for the first time.
MacCluggage's decision to
stage the play as an ensemble
piece will, as' an example,
have four of the actors per-
forming one monologue.
Each monologue as Ensler
wrote it represents one


thing else the play is about
empowering women.
"The play should make
women and men who love
them feel good and empow-


done before, with three peo-
ple or one person sitting
behind a podium on a stool
reading the play ... I wanted
to present something a little


ence members of the content
and language of the play prior
to its opening. Signs will be
posted in the lobby explain-
ing the nature of the play and
the language used in it.
The theater also is, in
Chase's words, "right upfront
with the answers" when it
receives phone inquiries or
visits to the box office about
the play.
Prior to each performance
there will be a curtain speech
that will discuss the the play's
subject.
The actors
"It ... rocks!" says 23-year-
old actor Cael Barkman,
adding, "It ['The Vagina
Monologues'] has a lot of
views, female views, differ-
ent views from women on
how they view their sexuali-
ty."
Dianne Brin wanted to do
the show because of its versa-
tility. She views it as a won-
derful vehicle for acting. "The
characters in the various
monologues are dynamic
and they're exciting and
they're interesting and they're
real," says Brin.


Referring to violence
against women, Baez-Officer
comments, "I just thought it
was interesting that, he, this
particular person, was so
worried, concerned about
[the play] being anti-male
and being vulgar. I just won-
der if he's that outraged about
what happens to women's
vaginas, more than just us
.talking about them."
A final thought
"The Vagina Monologues"
director Linda MacCluggage
was asked for a final thought
of what she hoped audiences
would take away from the
play:
"A woman who, maybe,
when the play first starts, is
thinking, 'Oh my God' and by
the end of it she's saying
'Wow! I'm so glad I came and
heard this.'"

NOTJUSTA PLAY
In 1998 as 'The Vagina Monologues" increased in popularity,
V-Day began.
V-Day, described by Eve Ensler as "next-step philanthropy,"
raises funds through donations, ticket sales to the play, advertis-
ing and merchandising. The funds are distributed to grass-roots
organizations that work with issues related to violence against
women.
The play is performed at colleges and universities throughout
the country on Valentine's Day each year and is a main source of
funds.
The first performance of 'The Vagina Monologues" to raise
funds was held in 1998 in New York City. The play featured
Whoopi Goldberg, Glenn Close, Susan Sarandon and Calista
Flockhart and raised $150,000.
In 2005, V-Day performances of "The Vagina Monologues" and
other events worldwide raised $4 million.
V-Day has distributed money to organizations worldwide,
including Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center in Sarasota.
For more information on V-Day and violence against women,
