Boaters. fisherman and
residents alike are enjoying a
vacation this year from a tiny
organism that seemed to
cripple so many facets of life
last season.
Red tide, the naturally
occurring microscopic algae
Karenia brevis. forms only in
the Gulf of Nlexico and releas-
es toxins deadly to fish, birds
and marine mammals, and is
harmful to humans.
Last year, it paralyzed
much of Southwest Florida,
as a bloom discovered in
December 2004 plagued the
waters from Tampa to Naples
until it dissipated in No-
vember 2005.
Richard Pierce, senior sci-
entist and director of Mote

season's bloom among the
area's top 10 worst red tide
outbreaks ever.

People near the gulf no

and upper respiratory prob-
lems.
The gulf waters have been

owner-broker of Gulf Realty
and'Associates. "They're so
happy red tide is not around."
Cycles
While the red tide organ-
ism is always present in the
gulf, Mote officials have
reported no blooms this year.
But water testing and moni-
toring continue.
Three days a month, scien-
tists board boats and take
water samples from Tampa to
Naples. Many of the samples
are taken 30 miles to 40 miles


offshore. ,
Mote has also armed itself
with a small group of data-
collecting machines 'sta-
tioned in the gulf and area
bays. The machines continu-
ally monitor the water's con-
dition and presence of red
tide and send the information
back to a central command
center.
"The problem is getting
enough information on a fre-
quent-enough basis," Pierce
said. "We can't have our sci-
entists on boats all tie time."
Even though typical red
tide season runs from late
summer-to early fall. Pierce
said a bloom can erupt at any
time. And because the blooni
usually forms on the ocean
floor, scientists often do not
know of a bloom's presence
until it is close to full force.
But Mote officials said they
weren't surprised this year
has been free of red tide so far.
"It seems like it goes in
cycles, but I don't know if the
scientists understand why it
goes in' cycles," said Nadine
Slimak, a spokeswoman for
Mote.

Residents and the media
aren't the only ones who won-
der what in the world Venice
City Council members are
thinking when they vote.
City Manager Marty Black
and top staff are sometimes
left thinking the same thing.
Council members held
their annual Strategic Plan-
ning Workshop on Wednes-
day and Thursday. The ses-
sion provided a year-in-
review of goals met or missed,
as well as city staff's marching
orders for the upcoming fiscal
year.
Part of this review included
the city manager, who has a
degree in psychology, testing
council members to deter-
mine how they reach a deci-
sion.
There were few surprises
once the numbers came in:
All of them are highly com-
petitive, and hardly any rates
high on accommodating oth-
ers.
".ll of you ran for office, so
that means a part ot you
enjoys suffering in the lime-
light," Black said.
The city manager then
quickly turned to why the test
is important.
Negotiation is one of the
most important traits for
members to have. They must
be willing to let go of their
competitive edge and their
personal viewpoint in order
to reach a decision that bene-
fits the community.
. "We have to be in this
(negotiation) mode as a pub-
lic policy board," Black said.
"Otherwise, we will get noth-
ing done. ... We'll get stuck,
unwilling to move."

Experts agree more hurricane prep needed


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

The who's who of -hurri-
cane forecasting and disaster
response made appearances
as the 28th Annual National
Hurricane Conference got'
into full swing Wednesday.
The annual gathering of
emergency managers was
dominated by keynote speak-
ers who became household
names during the 2005 hurri-
cane season,
Max Mayfield, Michael
Chertoff, Thad Allen, R.
Richard Paulison and others
offered their views of what
happened in 2005 and what
needs to happen before the
2006 hurricane season starts
in six weeks.
Mayfield, the National
Hurricane Center director,
began by rattling off a list of
numbers. Those numbers
equate to the records broken
during the' unprecedented
2005 season.
"As bad as it was, we were
very lucky," Mayfield said,
even though hlie was reporting
about the 28 named storms

that formed in the Atlantic
basin. Those storms claimed
about 1,500 lives in the
United States and caused
more than $100 billion in
damages.
. He explained that hurri-
canes Dennis, Katrina, Rita
and Wilma all spared major
population centers a direct
hit.
"We have not seen the
worst hurricane season yet,"
Mayfield said. "The strongest
winds from Katrina were on
the east side and the greater
New Orleans area did not
experience major hurricane-
force winds."
He said that people who
live on the Gulf or Atlantic
coasts need to prepare better
for hurricanes.
"I hope last season was
motivation to create a culture
,of preparedness and every-
one will have a plan in place
before the next storm,"
Mayfield said.

tary Chertoff called the team

"I never could have
thought I'd end the day feel-
ing lucky. It is a dramatic
reminder to make our own
luck," he said.
As it prepares for the up-
coming hurricane season,
Chertoff said Homeland Se-
curity has "no interest in
superseding or pushing aside
the local response."
, Local and state responders
are more attuned to the needs
and concerns of the residents
they serve, he said.
Katrina set the standard
framework in the way the
country manages a disaster,
he said.
Preparing for next season
means working more closely
with state and local govern-
ments by having a direct rep-
resentative from the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency assigned to key states.
That person will be directly
responsible for the federal
response.

Church won't


get road relief


BY BOB REDDY
STAFFWRITER

A request to add a new
median break along Center
Road has been shot down
again even though more than
2,500 people have signed a
petition asking for it.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners refused to support a
request by the parishioners of
Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic
Church at 1301 Center Road
for a median cut in front of
their building.
Center Road is being
widened now, and similar
requests have come in the
past and been rejected be-
cause there is an intersection
a few hundred feet west at
East Village Drive in front of a
church youth center, County
Administrator Jim Ley told
the board.
County Public Works Di-
rector Jim Harriott said the
road was designed to live up


to the county's access man-
agement standard, which
limits the number of left-turn
lanes on the road.
Traffic heading east on
Center Road would need to
make ,a U-turn about 200
yards east of the church to
gain access, or turn left at the
youth center, Harriott said.
"This is not a department
store. This is a use that is very
few times a week and only
through certain periods of
time," he said.
The church has also made
a request to add a traffic sig-
nal at East Village Drive, but a
study found that, for now, no
signal is warranted.
Harriott added that any
requests from the church
about altering access would
have to go through a lengthy
public hearing process, be-
cause it would require a spe-'
cial exception to the church's

Albritton named state's

oldest family business


From the April 10, 1999, Venice Gondolier Sun


BY ROCKY SWIFT
STAFF WRITER

Karl Albritton's was the
third generation to run his
family citrus business. Three
generations later, Albritton
Fruit Co. is recognized as the
oldest family business in
Florida.
Karl took the news of his fam-
ily's achievement in stride.
"Well, it's good to know


that you made it," he said.
At 98, Karl still lives in the
home he built in 1921, adja-
cent to the original Sarasota
orange grove his father,
Thomas, bought in 1901. The
company is now run by Karl's
son John, president of the
company, and his grandson
Robert Jr., general man-
ager.

18 to 70 years old, still work at
the 119-year-old enterprise.
In February, the Insti-
tute for Family Enterprise at
Bryant College in Smith-
field, R.I., released a two-year
study listing the oldest family
businesses in every state.
To qualify, each business
had to be continuously
owned by the family in the
state where they resided.
Professor William T.
O'Hara, executive director of
the institute, said the study


was not scientific but based
on the best available res-
ources.
O'Hara said the trend that
emerged from his study was
that lasting family businesses
tended to be in indus-
tries meeting basic hum-
an needs, such as food, cloth-
ing and transportation.
The Albrittons' success, he
said, is particularly remark-
able considering Sarasota
had only 300 residents when
the business relocated.


Because Tropical Bob is on
the Internet at www.sun-her-
ald.com, T.B. gets e-mail from

Last year about this time,
nearly all of the e-mails con-
cerned red tide. Did we have it
in this area? Was it stinky-bad?
Were dead fish floating
ashore? When would it go
away?
Regrettably, T.B. had to
affirm that red tide was a
problem back then. Tourists
left in disgust, some demand-
ing refunds. Pets had to visit
veterinarians after suffering
respiratory distress. Irritating
gases spread miles inland.
Not this year.

FEMA interim chief hopes



to change bureaucracy


Venice Yacht Club presents F. Lee


Bailey


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


Six months as temporary
head of a beleaguered federal
agency, and R. David Paulison
knows things will get better.
"This is going to be a diffi-
cult job," the acting director
of the Federal Emergency
Management Agency said.
"We have a lot of work to do
inside FEMA."
Paulison, recently named
as President George Bush's
choice to formally head
FEMA, spoke Wednesday to
the emergency managers at-
tending the 28th Annual
National Hurricane Confer-.
ence at The Rosen Center in
Orlando.
He took over as interim
director shortly after Hurri-
cane Katrina struck the gulf
coast and former director
Michael Brown resigned.
At the time, he said he
was there to improve the
agency's response to one of
the worst natural disasters in
the nation's history.
His first big test was Hurri-
cane Wilma. It struck South
Florida in late October and
did extensive damage in Mi-
ami, where Paulison was
once fire chief and then
emergency management di-
rector for several years.
A man with direct experi-
ence in dealing with disast-
ers, Paulison said he is pre-
paring the, agency for what is
expected to be another active
hurricane season.
"From what I heard from
(hurricane center director)
Max Mayfield, we need to be
prepared. Everyone needs to
be prepared," he said. "Amer-
icans want to know if we are
ready for future disasters
and they are anxious and
looking to us for reassurance
- and that is a reassurance
we can give them."
Retooling
There. is no rest for FEMA,.
which had the largest mo-
bilization of emergency re-
sponse and disaster recovery
in the history of the agency,
greater even than the 2004
hurricane season or the Sept.
11 terrorist attacks.
Hurricane season is less
than two months away, run-
ning from June 1 to Nov. 30,
and Paulison said FEMA is
gearing up.
"We are ready," he said.
"We are retooling FEMA."
That retooling includes
having better situational
awareness of what is hap-
pening on the ground.
FEMA was heavily criti-
cized following Katrina for its
top people not knowing what
was happening all along the


Gulf Coast and most specifi-
cally in New Orleans at the
Superdome and convention
center.
One of the problems fol-
lowing Katrina was that there
were huge numbers of trucks
heading to the disaster zone
and no way to track them.
The agency is getting global
positioning trackers for all of
its trucks in the East and
Southeast logistical supply
depots. That program is ex-
pected to be a national sys-
tem in two years.
FEMA plans to improve
logistics tracking and com-
modity replenishment ca-
pacity, as well as coordina-
tion with other federal agen-
cies including the Depart-
ment of Defense.
New technologies will
help improve communica-
tions, while several mobile
registration intake centers
and improved debris removal
practices are other ways
FEMA is preparing.
The communications
changes started during Hur-
ricane Wilma.
Paulison made sure FEMA
representatives were in the
emergency operations centers
of counties that were threat-
ened, and equipped with
satellite phones.
He also wants to improve
communication between loc-
al, state and federal agencies.
Leaning forward
The law that established
FEMA limits the amount of
federal involvement in local
emergencies. The system is
supposed to work on a cas-
cading system the locals
get overwhelmed and ask for
state help; the state gets
overwhelmed and asks for
federal help.
"We are going to lean very,
very far forward. We want to
make sure we don't have
another response like Ka-
trina," Paulison said.
This effort includes ap-
pointing, FEMA officials to
directly assist 13 different
states along the Gulf Coast.
Paulison admits there is
an institutional bureaucracy
with FEMA.
The people are dedicated
and work long hours but, he
said, "changing some of the
attitudes and cultures" is
important to restoring the
status of the agency.
He said that if he is con-
firmed by the U.S. Senate for
the permanent director post,
he will not ask for FEMA to
be pulled out from under the
Department of Homeland
Security, as former directors
and other so-called emer-
gency management experts
have demanded since Katrina.


"We have so many re-
sources at our fingertips,"
Paulison said. "FEMA was
geared to handle a certain-
sized disaster ... We had
900,000 people displaced by
(hurricanes) Katrina and
Rita. Another 100,000 fam-
ilies are in travel trailers and
mobile homes."
Homeland Security Di-
rector Michael Chertoff
praised Paulison Wednes-
day.
"We have got our house
in order," the secretary said.
"We are better prepared,
and changes in our leadership
will make a big difference."
He cited Paulison as part
of the new 'A-Team" for dis-
aster response.
Paulison admits a lot
needs to happen between
now and June 1 and that it is
only the beginning of the
new FEMA.

On Wednesday, it got a
little worse.
There were actually 28
named storms, not the 27 that
had been originally identi-
fied, National Hurricane
Center Director Max Mayfield
announced Wednesday dur-
ing the 28th Annual National
Hurricane Conference.
"It, indeed, was one for the
record books," Mayfield said.
He said if the storm had
been recognized earlier, Hur-
ricane Wilma would have
ended up being named Hur-


ricane Alpha.
Wilma registered the low-
est central pressure in record-
ed' history in late October
and did extensive damage in
Mexico before making land-
fall in Collier County.
Maxfield said that after
Hurricane Stan, a subtropical
storm formed Oct. 4 near the
Azores in the eastern Atlan-
tic. It had maximum winds of
about 50 mph, but those
numbers were not officially
recorded until after the sea-
son. The storm caused no
damage.
"e were kind of busy,"
NlMafield said. "We went back
to reexamine this system and
confirmed it did reach sub-


tropical storm status."
No changes
Had it been recognized at
the time, it would have been'
given the 19th name on the
list: Tammy. It would have
also caused a ripple effect in
the later names, including
Wilma.
The hurricane center is
not changing the name of any
of the 2005 storms; it is just
changing the record to in-
clude the unnamed storm.
"We always want to verify
or record and it is important
to count each storm," May-
field said.
The last storm of the sea-
son would have been named


Eta, the seventh letter of the
Greek alphabet, instead of
Zeta.
Also, the hurricane center
would have had to retire
Alpha, meaning that if there
are more 'than 21 named
storms this season, the first
letter to be used after the
main list of 21 names is
exhausted would be Beta.
The hurricane center used
the Greek alphabet after its
base list of 21 names ran out,
the first time that had hap-
pened. The ohly other time
as many' as 21 storms had
formed was in 1933, before
they were named.

Energy consultant hopes




to save schools millions


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County Schools
Superintendent Gary Norris is
taking another page from the
Salinas, Kan., playbook to im-
prove area schools this time
to save money on utilities.
Norris utilized an energy
consultant while leading the
Salinas school system. The
results were positive.
This time he hopes to
save Sarasota County schools
around $20 million through
energy saving.
Associate Superintendent
Bob Early told the school
board at a workshop Tuesday
the district may be looking at a
worst-case 40-percent jump
in rates by Florida Power &
Light. Landings officials said
the district's likely to see a 30-
percent rise in rates already
under way. Residential rates
are going up 20 percent under
the same fuel adjustment
approved back in January.
In a school district that
spends $25,000 per day on
electricity, gas, water and
sewer utilities covering 7 mil-
lion square feet of building
space, "if we can realize some
savings, we can minimize
some of that expected in-
crease," Early said.
Gary Clark of Energy Edu-
cation Inc. pitched his com-
pany's services to the Sara-
sota County School Board
Tuesday. He said Energy Edu-


cation typically saves a dis-
trict between 15-30 percent
on utilities.
"There's no cost to district.
This is really a budget neutral
item," Clark said. "If we don't
save your district enough to
cover our contract, we will
actually write you a check.
Every one of the school dis-
tricts we have worked with
has been able to save."
Polk County School District
saved $3 million last year,
Clark said. Last year's electric
bill was lower than when it
began partnering with Energy
Education five years ago,
and so is water usage, he
said. Education Energy has
also worked with Charlotte,
Orange and Escambia coun-
ties in Florida.
Plugging in
To ensure the cost savings
are real, the company requires
the district to purchase its
energy-tracking software, but
allows the district to manipu-
late measurements of how
cost savings are realized.
"It's not us telling the dis-
trict how much they saved; it's
the district telling us how
much they saved," Clark said.
In its simplest form, the
consultant will help teachers
remember to turn off lights at
night, and train maintenance
and custodial personnel in
how to most efficiently power
up (and down) various light-
ing and cooling systems. But


it's actually a lot more compli-
cated than that, Clark said.
"We teach people to be
energy savers, not just energy
users," Clark said. "We focus
on people in the building. If
they're not plugged into ener-
gy savings habits, then you're
missing out on savings."
To make it happen, Clark
said his company requires a
five-year commitment. Dur-
ing that time 20 of Energy
Education's personnel visit the
district to assess efficiency
and train staff. The district
selects two of its mainte-
nance/custodial employees to
become year-round energy
efficiency coordinators, will-
ing to get to schools by 5 a.m.
each morning. Energy Edu-
cation would help select the
personnel.
"This program is people-
based. You can see when the
lights were left on. The hard
part is stopping. that from
happening tomorrow. We
don't tell teachers to dress
warmer or use less lights. We
know that's, the quickest way
to failure. We say, 'Here's some
small things you can do to
save,' "Clark said.
"This is a great way to
hedge against rising utility
rates," he added.
Early said he would bring a
proposal for the board to con-
sider at a future meeting.

Neighbors want answers


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Development proposals
often stir adversarial reac-
tions from neighbors. A pro-
gram designed last summer
to overcome that problem
went into effect after autho-
rization by the Sarasota Coun-
ty Board of Commissioners.
A group of land planners,
developers, attorneys, an
architect, citizen activists,
county staffers and mem-
bers of the Sarasota Council
of Neighborhood Associa-
tions worked for about 12
months to put the program
together.
Neighborhood workshops,
the first step in the rezoning
process, were found unsatis-
factory by the group.
"Early on, it's important
for the petitioner to tell pros-
pective neighbors, 'This is
what we're thinking of doing.
Have you any objections?'
This should lead to a back-
and-forth conversation in-
volving everyone," said Wil-
liam Zoller, a member of the
citizens group and a director
of CONA.
But the program, which
would involve a second work-
shop and an independent
moderator to guide the meet-
ings, won't succeed if the
developer cannot or will not
answer questions posed by
neighbors and owners of
adjacent properties.
No answers
A case in point was a re-
cent workshop at the Laurel
Civic Center. Two represent-
atives of the developer who


wants to rezone a 4.94-acre
lot for luxury condominiums
had few answers to questions.
The developer successfully
petitioned for rezoning of an
adjoining 19-acre tract several
months ago.
The generally friendly aud-
ience asked questions about
drainage, a problem on Laurel
Road, protection of gopher
turtles, owls and eagles in the
neighborhood and proposed
buffers.
"Neither the lawyer nor
the architect there to tell us
what is going to happen
could answer a single ques-
tion," complained Mike Le-
vine, the manager of the
nearby Encore Royal Coach-
man RV Resort. "How stupid
do they think we are?"
K.C. McCay, pastor of the
Congregational Church of
Laurel, said he missed a
workshop 12 months ago as
well as the one earlier this
month because he wasn't
notified. He did say he is
acquainted with Robert Man-
sell, whose MTH Associates
is the developer of both
properties.
Now or later
MTH has told county
planners that 92 units will be
built on the larger site in 14
two-story buildings. Twenty
more will be built in five two-
story buildings on the small-
er property. The developer's
Web site offers different con-
figurations and a different
number of units.
Mansell said that the de-
velopment, to be known as
Calusa Park, will offer units
at prices from $400,000 to


$700,000. He anticipate the
start of construction on the
19 acres by late May.
Jack Wilhelm, a county
planner, said he did not fore-
see a start for 12 months,
after the rezoning process is
concluded. The phone at the
sales office of the develop-
ment has a recorded answer
stating, "Our office will open
soon at 650 Laurel Road."
The property had been a
horse farm operated by Aud-
rey Skelton and her parents.
Left in a trust when Skelton's
mother died, the 19 acres
were sold to Roger Morey.
His contract to buy was
taken over by Mansell.
Skelton owned the smaller
property, which included her
'home, until two years ago,
when it was purchased by
MTH.
Barbara Southall, Skelton's
sister, said that her parents
were told by Morey that the
land would be occupied by
single-family homes.
Southall still lives in a
wooded area to the rear of
the two tracts, to the south.
The northern border is on
Laurel Road. She said she is
concerned about an ease-
ment, which allows her and
students she tutors in math-
ematics to pass through a
stretch of road about 2-acres
long on what is now MTH
property.
Skelton, now a resident of
Ocala, recalled that "our rela-
tions with the developers
were not very pleasant from
the get-go." The developers
had begun moving onto her
property "before I was done
moving out."


Board mulls rule to discourage meeting protests


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Sarasota County School
Board is considering making a
third rule change in response
to the actions of one of its
more vocal critics.
Board members have got-
ten used to seeing Kim Wilk-
inson at its second regular
monthly meeting held at 6:30
p.m. It's the only time she's
able to attend board meetings,
since other meetings and
workshops take place during
9-5 working hours.
She is single-minded in
purpose demanding noth-
ing less than for the board to
expel Planned Parenthood
from Sarasota County public
schools.
Wilkinson and a handful of
Venice parents were success-
ful two years ago in getting
the district to revise a life-
skills class policy, requiring
schools that offer a class with
guest speakers to provide a
second parallel class without
guest speakers.
The compromise policy
put the issue to rest, or so the
board thought.
But Wilkinson, unhappy
with the compromise, contin-'


ued to attend school board
meetings and oppose Plan-
ned Parenthood in public
schools.,
Her graphic remarks and
pointed accusations led past
board president-Kathy Klein-
lein to make a second change
- revamp the school dis-
trict's "Hearing, of citizens"
card all members of the public
are required to submit at the
beginning of the meeting.
The card outlines civility rules
for public speakers.
The board also determined
that inflammatory comments
,about school leadership
Would be handled by the
board chair, while accusations
against staff would be handled
by the superintendent.
Silent protest
Over the last few months
chair Carol Todd has remind-
ed Wilkinson repeatedly that
students often are in the
audience.
That didn't stop Wilkinson
at the March 21 meeting from
again protesting the "abor-
tionists led by Planned
Parenthood," that are "killing
and maiming young women."
She upped the level of
protest at the meeting by


carrying a homemade 3-by-4
foot placard with a picture of
a dead 7-week old fetus. On
the placard was written: '
"She IS a baby. 7 week abor-
tion. Planned Parenthood."'
Throughout the rest of the
meeting Wilkinson stood at
the back of the board cham-
bers silently holding the
placard up for all board mem-
bers to see.
It got their attention, and
the multi-directional camera
remained pointed forward
toward the board for the
duration of the meeting.

Take it outside
At the next board work-
shop on Tuesday a new sec-
tion had been added to a draft
board policy already under
review.
In addition to streamlining
the meetings policy by elimi-
nating outdated language
referring to groups that wish
to be placed on the agenda, a
new draft policy states that
members of the public shall
not display signs, posters, or
placards in the school board
meeting room.
The draft goes on to clarify

about justice, understanding and
exploration. Not dogma and rules.

the policy doesn't apply to
materials "deemed reason-
ably necessary" by staff to
make effective presentations
or by citizens addressing the
board.
"Sometimes things hap-
pen that make us reflect on
our policies. If they are chal-
lenged, then we need to
hear those concerns," Todd
said. "Every concern brought
before the board by a citizen
is a valid concern."
"Our concern is how to
maintain the integrity of the
board room, and at the same


time allow free' speech. We
want, to encourage free
speech, but we don't want
(that) to be in any way dis-
ruptive to the board."
There's room for that kind
of protest outside in the
lobby or in other areas, she
said.
The draft school board rule
will again be brought before
the board at its first meeting
in May.

development agreement.
"We were dealing with this
when we went through the
original design for Center
Road," Harriott said. "A medi-
an break there would impact
the left-turn lane (at East
Village Drive)."
A petition with more than
2,500 signatures cites the near-
by Christ Methodist Church,


which has a left-turn lane to get
into and out of the property.
Harriott said an agreement
was reached creating a loop-
ing action where the entrance
into the church will force traf-
fic to a different exit location,
thus the two median breaks.
There is also no other road
near the entrance, which he'
said makes a difference.
While the board took no
action about the issue, Com-


missioner Shannon Staub said
the county needs to send a let-
ter to the church to explain the
special exception issue and to
notify it of the conflicts a medi-
an break would pose at the
location proposed.
"We will be well past in the
construction (of Center Road)

said. "We can't stop this pro-

where a homeowner is guar-
anteed up to 35 feet for a
house.
In all other zoning districts
- multi-family, commercial,
etc. maximum heights of
35,45 or 55 feet can be denied
if evidence is presented
showing a project is incom-
patible.
City Attorney Bob An-
derson chimed in, saying a
handful of citizens speaking
against a project is not
enough. There must be legal
evidence to support denial,
be it the staff report, the plan-
ning commission's recom-
mendation or a study.
"Which I don't know that
we've ever done. ... It's diffi-
cult to say no when every-
thing is positive," Anderson
said.
Where they are
Among the council mem-
bers, Vicki Taylor came out as
the most competitive with a
score of 11. Close on her heels
are Vice Mayor Fred Ham-
mett and Rick Tacy, both at
10, while Mayor Dean Cala-
maras was the least competi-
tive with a score of 5. People
in this category tend to be
assertive and do what needs


DEPARTMENT DIRECTORS
Venice City Council members weren't the only ones who had to complete a conflict resolution test.
Every department director and charter officer was given one to determine his or her competition,
accommodation, avoidance, collaboration and compromising tendencies.
Here are the most likely and least likely tendencies for each person:
* City Manager Marty Black compromise, accommodate (8) and collaborate, avoid (4)
* City Attorney Bob Anderson compete (12) and accommodate (2)
* City Clerk Lori Stelzer avoid (8) and compete, collaborate (5)
* City Finance Director Jeff Snyder compete (10) and avoid (2)
* Administrative Services Director Brenda Digges avoid (10) and compete (5)
* Airport Manager Fred Watts avoid (9) and compete (3)
* Archives Director Dorothy Korwek avoid (12) and accommodate (1)
* Building Director Hans Behrens collaborate, compromise (9) and accommodate (1)
* City Engineer Nancy Woodley compromise (11) and compete (2)
* Fire Chief Mike Johnson avoid (10) and compete (3)
* Planning Director Tom Slaughter compete (9) and collaborate (3)
* Police Chief Jim Hanks (retired) compromise (9) and compete, collaborate (4)
* Public Works Director Larry Heath compete (8) and accommodate (3)
* Strategic Planning Manager Mary Holcombe compromise (11) and avoid (0)
* Utilities Manager Chris Sharek compete (10) and accommodate (3)


to be done to accomplish
their goals.
On the opposite end is
accommodating a person
who will neglect his or her
beliefs in favor of someone
else's. The least accommodat-
ing council members were
Tacy with a score of 1, and
Calamaras and John Sim-
monds at 2. The most accom-
modating was Hammett at 5.
Council members also
were tested on avoidance -
their tendency not to address
a conflict, at the expense of


personal beliefs and beliefs of
others. Where a competitive
person might argue and an
accommodating person just
give in, a person tending
toward avoidance might side-
step or postpone an issue
until a better time.
John Moore, Simmonds
and Tacy all scored the high-
est, 6, on this, while Bill
Willson had the lowest avoid-
ance score at 2.
The city manager told
council the most important
numbers are the negotiation


areas of collaboration and
compromise. Those who col-
laborate remain assertive in
their goals, but will work with
others for a resolution.
Calamaras scored the
highest, 10, for collaboration,
while the rest were in.the 6-7
range. Tacy was the lowest at
5.
The trait of compromising
is quite similar to collabora-
tion, but this person may
work more quickly because
he or she is more likely to
accept someone else's view-

point. Willson scored the
highest, 11, and Hammett
came in the lowest at 4.
As the scores were read,

there was plenty of laughter
and disputing of numbers.
Black emphasized there
are no bad or good scores.
The findings simply indicate
a person's tendencies in deal-
ing with conflict and making
decisions.


No one contested taking
the tests, according to Black,
who said that's a sign of
everyone's desire to improve
performance.
"It"s reflective of the group
we have, wanting to work bet-
ter," Black said.

County to survey
project participants
Over the next two weeks,
about 4,500 Sarasota County
residents who participated in
the county's automated
garbage collection pilot pro-
ject will receive surveys ask-
ing their opinions about the
new collection service.
The survey marks the offi-
.aida endof the six-moni pilot
project, and the results \ill be
factored into the final deci-
sion whether the program
will be implemented county-
wide.
Sarasota County Solid
Waste began testing the auto-
mated carts last October, to
see if they would make
garbage pickup cleaner and
more efficient for area resi-
dents.
The automated carts hold
up to three normal garbage
cans' worth of material,
according to Solid Waste
Manager Larry Alexander.
They're resistant to animals
and prevent lids from blow-
ing away in heavy winds.
The program was tested in
neighborhoods throughout
the county that represent dif-
ferent types of collection sce-
narios. There was no addi-
tional cost to the participants
for the cart during the pilot
project.
Now that the pilot project
is ending, Alexander encour-
ages all pilot participants to
complete the survey cards
that will soon be arriving by
mail. Alexander said a pre-
sentation to county commis-
sioners will occur in May.
For more information
about automated cart collec-
tion service, contact the
Sarasota County Call Center
at 861-5000 and ask for Solid
Waste Customer Service.

These volunteers will also
help educate residents on
how to prepare their pets for
an emergency event.


No special-skills-are: e-

Sarasota County is seeking an
volunteers to mark drains for Ne
its Storm-drain Marking Off
Program. The program's goal
is to raise community aware- ed,
ness about the pollutants that coi
find their way into the coun- tio
ty's stormwater system, and an
eventually into the bay. or
To remind residents of the Pa
importance of clean
stormwater, the county: has
begun placing'drain markers f '
at the entrance of storni
drains in several communi-
ties. The first of these efforts is k
in the neighborhoods sur-
rounding Hudson Bayou.
Volunteers will begin marking
about 450 drains around the
Hudson Bayou basin in mid-
April.
Each marker bears the
phrase, "No dumping!" in
both English and Spanish and
will be permanently affixed to
the curb.
In addition to volunteering
for the drain-marking system,
residents can help keep
stormwater safe by reporting
anyone improperly disposing
of pollutants on the ground or
in any part of the stormwater
system. Sarasota County
accepts calls about these
reports 24 hours a day at 861-

OUR VIEW




Prison reform needs constant attention


t is difficult to find citizens who care what
happens inside Florida's prisons. Those
convicted of crimes are clearly the state's
"bad guys." Many feel that inmates deserve
what happens to them.
We often forget that most prisoners even-
tually are released. They may move in just
down the street.
A man who has been sodomized by prison
bullies, brutalized by guards, or locked in a
solitary confinement cell, does. not always
become a friendly, easy-going, helpful neigh-
bor. Without a job, a man may return to
crime.
Few of us know what happens behind
prison walls. We are not inclined to believe
what ex-prisoners tell us, although that may
be changing since DNA evidence has freed
men on death row.
Conditions in Florida prisons are bad. Ron
McAndrew, former warden at Florida State


Prison, testified before a national investiga-
tive group last year. He said prisoner abuse is
"systematically chronic." He suggested our
larger prisons had "goon squads" that were
feared by staff and prisoners.
Before McAndrew left in 1998, he warned
the new warden, James Crosby, that a goon
squad was so violent he was afraid a prisoner
would be killed.
In July of 1999, prisoner Frank Valdes died
after officers entered his cell. Some guards
were acquitted at trial. Prosecutors dropped
charges against the others.
Later, Crosby was named secretary of the
Department of Corrections. A few weeks ago
he was told to resign by Gov. Jeb Bush, fol-
lowing troubling ,reports Bush couldn't
ignore.
Bush replaced Crosby with Jim Mc-
Donough, a decorated military officer and
the man picked to wage war on drugs in


Florida.
McDonough, who admits he lacks experi-
ence in running prisons, has pledged to clean
house. He has demanded "honesty in all
things" from prison staff. He also fired Ward-
en Laynard Owens, at Gainesville Correc-
tional Institution, without offering an expla-
nation.
McDonough has a tough road ahead.
Reform isn't easy. California's reform correc-
tions secretary, Roderick Q. Hickman, resign-
ed recently, claiming he lacked political sup-
port to root out corruption. Special interests
made reform impossible.
Florida's prison system now faces federal,
civil lawsuits because several female employ-
ees allege sexual harassment. There also are
accusations that inmates have been sprayed
by chemicals and reports of misuse of tax-
payers' money.
Nine corrections officers were placed on


unpaid leave last week while McDonough's
staff investigates a brawl last April at a soft-
ball banquet.
Over the years, the prisons in other states
have had serious scandals to deal with.
Lawmakers in cities where prisons are locat-
ed often oppose change. Prison reform usu-
ally lasts a few years, then problems erupt
again.
By nature, prisons are not nice places.
Working there is said to harden and corrupt
good people.
We believe Bush, who had heard many
allegations, let our prison mess simmer far
too long. Undoubtedly the governor became
distracted by other pressing matters, such as
hurricanes. .
When prisons become brutal, all of society
faces unwarranted risks as mistreated pris-
oners are released. We hope Bush has the
backbone to clean up Florida's prison mess.


Harris has



earned GOP



endorsement


1' M iY KAY tJI 1.L
COLUMNIST


I read that Gov. Jeb Bush
has once again affirmed he
will not seek the Republican
nomination for the U.S.
Senate seat now held by
Democrat Bill Nelson.
Bush also stated he was
worried about the Republican
Party's ability to capture the
seat with Congresswoman
Katherine Harris running. He
said she has made the Senate
campaign about herself in-
stead of Nelson's record.
Well, governor, all of this
conjecturing about why Har-
ris is trailing Nelson badly in
the polls and whether or not
you would run for the Senate
seat yourself could be quelled
once and for all if you would
give Harris the .strong en-
dorsement she so richly
needs and deserves from you
and your brother, President
George Bush. Why have they
not been forthcoming?
Who I am talking about
here is the Florida secretary of
state who in 2000 certified
George W. Bush's 537-vote
win in Florida.
Despite accusations from
the Democrats that she had
"cheated," she took the heat
and carried out the rule of law
exactly. That action turned
"Katherine Harris" into a
household name.
The Democrats, who still
think she cheated Al Gore out
of the presidency, have vili-
fied, chastised and maligned
her at every opportunity. De-
spite this, she managed to
win her Congressional Dis-
trict 13 seat against Democrat
opponent Jan Schneider.
Let's talk a little about
Katherine Harris' political
record as a Congresswoman.
She supported Americans
for Tax Reform in their pre-
ferred positions 100 percent.
You know, Nelson would like
to take away our tax cuts.
Her voting record was 75
percent in support of the wel-
fare and poverty group called
Bread for the World. She con-
sistently voted "Yes" in sup-
port of endangered species.
The Florida Right to Life


group routinely gives Harris
high marks for her advocacy
of abortion restrictions.
She supports the right to
own guns, whereas Nelson
does not. Nelson supported
an amendment that has been
revised by Sen. Clinton and
ex-President Clinton caqlepd
the "Unintended -Prepnancy
Aunndment." That amend-
ment was defeated.
He also voted against the
continuation of the partial-
birth abortion amendment,
which was also defeated, and
"No" against the reauthoriza-
tion of the Patriot Act.
Finding out how the candi-
dates have voted is very sim-
ple to look up on the Internet.
Currently, Harris is taking
more flack from liberals that
her recent and frequent re-
marks concerning her faith in
God are simply a political ma-
neuver in order to strengthen
her political base of evangeli-
cal Christian Republicans.
Her supporters and insiders
insist it is not a political
maneuver and that she has
never hesitated to discuss her
faith in public.
She has consistently been
very outspoken against the
removal of any religious sym-
bols from public places. In
fact, in my humble opinion,
aligning herself so strongly
with the religious right could
be more of a detriment to her
politically. Moderates and
they are the majority of voters
- do not like the religious
right particularly.
However, havingmetKath-
erine Harris on one occasion,
she did not strike me at all as
the sort of person who would
espouse views simply to win
votes.
The majority of her staff
has abandoned her like rats
from a sinking ship. To that, I
say good riddance. Maybe
now her campaign will take
wing and soar.
On her Web site she posted
a Carl Bard quote: "Though
no one can go back and make
a brand new start, anyone can
start from now and make a
brand new ending."
However, going back to my
opening comments, it sure
would make things a lot sim-
pler if she got the strong
endorsement she deserves
and has earned from the
Republican Party.

L TERS FROM OUR READERS


Swift justice would deter child molesters


Editor:
The American way of justice is the best, but it has its flaws -
and that, of course, pleases the many attorneys who leach off
the system.
The death system is, I am sure, a deterrent but it usually
takes more than a decade before a death sentence is carried
out. You see, in our system, even the obviously guilty have
appeal rights. There are those defense lawyers who will search
every uttered word to prolong things and, of course, make
money.
During my career, hundreds of times I visited prisons, many,
many times in Starke (where there is a death row), and numer-
ous others. The average person does not comprehend the fact
that a great number of prisoners have many rights.
Some prisons are run by outside agencies and have elabo-
rate manufacturing facilities within their Walls and manufac-
ture cabinets, metal lockers, and such, and theprisoners do the
work and get paid for it (not much), but they have some seri-
ous freedom, not to mention access to computers and
libraries.
There are telemarketing firms that hire prisoners to make
their sales pitch to you (so be careful!)
Last, did you know that just in Florida we have five inmates
who are on death row and here is the real "killer" most
have been milking the system for about 10 years one for 20
years.
The olde hanging tree probably was crude and rude and
maybe mistakes were made, but that is a deterrent. I would
love to see it for child molesters.

Editor:
The writer who thinks the

ting old. Even some on the left

crats taking America back

LET 'EM HAVE IT! i uT i J TI TMNK OF THE PROPOSAL TO ADD 30

MINUTES TO THE END OF T1HE SCHOOL DAY? CALL US AT 207 1111,


Kids, cats what's the diff?


Parents should pay. Shame on all the people who did not
make it out to vote March 14. I have a bumch of elderly neigh-
bors who did nothing but complain about the taxes and the
possibility of their going up and not one of them out of 12
bothered to vote. Personally, I think that the funding from
schools should come from some of the parents. You've got kids
walking around in $120 tennis shoes with $70 cell phones, why
can't some of those kids parents pay for their education? Of
course, on a sliding scale.Why do people without children have
to pay? I have a cat. Nobody helps me pay for my cat. I chose to
have a cat, so I have to pay for everything by myself with no
help from the government. I realize that children and cats are
two different things, but still the same concept.


Parents beware. It is won-
derful having the movie the-
aters in town. They did a
beautiful job. But parents,
beware. Once your child or
teenager pays for a movie out-
side, they can go to any movie
inside. There is no one at any
door to any theater telling
them that that movie is not for
them. Parents need to know
that once inside there is no
supervision.
So special? I'd like to know
why some of the people who
live on Harbor Drive feel they
have the right to take their leaf
blowers and blow all of the
leaves onto the median. Do
they believe they are so spe-
cial that the city should pay its
workers to clean up their yard
waste? I think they should be
fined and made to clean up
their mess.
Open up. At Nokomis
Beach they planned the res-
toration, which is $800,000.
It's all fenced off and you're
not able to walk to the
restroom without having to
go all the way around. If they
just opened up the sidewalk,
it would help a lot of people
who are handicapped and
older people who can't walk
good.
Deserves credit. I'm a
snowbird from Indiana and I
really like your newspaper. I
especially enjoy the Let'em
Have It column. You had
* asked for a new name for your
column. At home, our paper
calls it "Cheers and jeers." So
that allows for people to give
good comments, as well as
bad comments. My first jeer is
for your paper, I'm sorry, to
say. Today on page 14A you
have two pictures of high
school seniors who signed for
college scholarships. The
credit I.D.s the family mem-
bers but the only identifica-
tion for the four men in the
back row is that they are VHS
football coaches. It just seems
to me that these coaches have
given very many hours of
time and energy and they cer-
tainly deserve to have their
name printed in paper too.
My cheer is for the Vene-.
tian Waterway Park. It is fan-
tastic. We love the whole
Venice area and especially the
waterway. I really enjoy your
paper when we're down here

What is surprising is that
Sharky's request was already

cussed in Tuesday's meeting.
Some appointments appear.
to have been already set. The
city attorney appeared to be
unaware of the request until
the meeting. Good they asked


Sharky's architect to appear
before council and make a
presentation to all city council
staff and the public, in the
sunshine. Otherwise, it could
or would, give the wrong
impression. This is particular-
ly important when dealing
with the lease of the pier. With
so much dialogue over the
years, it would certainly make
sense to have all discussions
.in front of city council that
deal with this particular sub-
ject.
Can't tolerate. I'm not sur-
prised by the voter support of
the referendum for the
schools in Venice because I've
lived here for quite a while
and I am a senior citizen, but
I've never seen such a bunch
of greedy, self-centered, in-
considerate, coupon-gather-
ing cheapskates. If it's free,
they're there, with their damn
lawn chairs. Now I'm glad I'm
getting out of here because
I've gotten to the point where
I can't tolerate these jerks.
Not good. Yeah, I'm gonna

ed plants and if this does not
cease, pretty soon there won't
be any plants left for anybody
to enjoy. I hope that people
understand that you cannot
remove vegetation from a
public park.
Nice going. To the voters
casting a yes vote to approve
the four-year local 1-mill
property tax continuation,
how brilliant you are. Now the
state legislators can say, well,
since you want to fund your

fine. No reason for us to ap-
prove more extra state fund-
ing for the Sarasota County

Eyesore. I'd like to know

ment allowed this little hous-
ing development off East Ven-
ice Avenue at Clermont, out
past the Publix. To allow this
on Venice Avenue, the backs
of these little houses, it basi-
cally is an eyesore. I'd like to
call and thank whoever in the
government approved this
without any screening. It's
been an eyesore for a year,
and I would assume if they do
screening, it will probably be
a butt-ugly wall. Why are they
allowing this junk to be built
on a gateway into Venice? It
just scares me to death.
Bad location. We have rent-
ed a condo across from the
airport for many years. While
loving the location, there are
other considerations. The
diesel fumes can be so strong
that closing up still does not
prevent the odors from invad-
ing and penetrating. We are
healthy people, but do have'
trouble catching our breath
when this occurs, usually
daily. We do love observing
the small planes using the air-
port, but when the large jets
and numerous helicopters
make their presence known,
all conversation, phone calls
and audio programs must be
suspended, which is another
negative reason for thinking
the location would make a
good business park. Boating
implies tranquility. The
scenery is certainly tranquil,
but after spending time at a
marina in this location with
the fumes and the noise fac-
tors, I'm sure boaters will pass
the word to avoid the Venice
airport marina. A ,marina
close to the shopping area
and restaurants would be a
wonderful asset for Venice,
just not near the airport. We
do appreciate the airport's
Effort in stopping the mid-
night landings that used to jar

.ad., piaJing. The Gon-
dolier Sithrcomplains that the
planning department in Ven-
ice doesn't plan. Does the
county do any better? Our
Lady. of Lourdes Catholic
Church was founded, and ap-
proved for construction just
20 years ago on Center Road.
Planners must have realized'
that parishioners at churches
all leave when services end,
yet planners allowed cookie-
cutter developments behind
the church so Center Road is
the only access for 500 cars.
Now bustling Center Road
is being expanded to four
lanes and only a right turn will
be permitted onto Center
Road. So those heading east
after services will have to
make a risky U-turn. And, of
course, the county has ap-
proved the construction of
thousands of homes to the
east of the church, bringing in
hundreds of new members
from that direction.

Why 'The Vagina Monologues'?


BY LINDA MACCLUGGAGE
GUEST COLUMNIST

"Vagina" is an invisible
word. We rarely hear it, see it
or speak it. It's a word that
stirs up anxiety, embarrass-
ment, shame and even dis-
gust.
That is what Eve Ensler, the
author of "The Vagina Mono-
logues," discovered about her
notorious subject and it is the
very reason why she wrote
her play, which has become a
worldwide theatrical phe-
nomenon.
Ensler originated "The Va-
gina Monologues" as an off-
Broadway, one-woman per-
formance piece in 1997. It
was an enormous success.
Women and more than a few
men flocked to the theater to
hear words and stories they
had not heard spoken aloud
in public before.
The play was published
two years later and has since
been performed in some 80
countries from Tulsa,
Okla., to Nairobi, Kenya -
and been translated into
more than 45 languages. It
has provoked condemnation
and standing ovations, overt
censorship and unabashed
praise.
Obviously it is a play that
people respond to.


As the director of Venice
Little Theatre's production of
"The Vagina Monologues," I
have listened to the cast say
the word "vagina" hundreds
of times during the rehearsal
process. We've laughed,
groaned, gasped, moaned
and, ultimately, arrived at a
place where we are comfort-
able and at ease with our sub-
ject matter.
It's been a liberating expe-
rience.
Of course, vagina is not a
pornographic, word. It's the
proper name for a part of the
female body arguably the
most important part, since it
is the locus of where all
human life begins. It is also
the core of female sexuality, a
source of pleasure and eroti-
cism.
In other times and places
in the course of human civi-
lization, the vagina has been
revered, even viewed as
sacred.
Yet here we are in the 21st
century and there is still
silence, fear and shame.
Ensler takes the shame
and explodes it onstage, using
interviews. she conducted
with several hundred women.
She asked them questions -
both serious and playful -
about their vaginas and their
sexual histories. She got


answers that were startling,
poignant and outrageous.
Some of the monologues are
heart-wrenching while others
are wickedly hilarious.
For me, the play empowers
and celebrates women's sexu-
ality. It does not apologize for
that. It also raises our aware-
ness of the hatred and vio-
lence directed against women
- in ways both large and
small. It demands to be
heard.
Is it a play made for every-
one? No. It depends on one's
ability to listen openly to
other people's (read "wom-
en's") stories and to venture
where one might be reluctant
to go.
It calls for a sense of humor
and tolerance and it can
make a listener blush. Or
cheer. It's that kind of theatri-
cal experience.
"The Vagina Monologues"
can and does offend some
people in the same way
that unvarnished truths and
frank'language can offend.
However, for the women
whose words we speak on-
stage, anything less would be
a lie.

Linda MacCluggage
directs "The Vagina
Monologues" at Venice Little
Theatre April 13-30.'

Saving energy is
the real answer
Editor:
How many times must
Congress say no to drilling in
the Arctic National Wildlife


Reserve?
This item keeps coming up
for a vote. Each time it does, it
is defeated. Perhaps the oil
companies lined up to move
in and make a buck have
enough senators and con-
gressmen on their payroll to
assure that it comes up until it
is passed on a "midnight" hid-
den vote? I hope not.
We need real methods to
improve our energy efficien-
cy, not just more and more
places to drill for oil. If
Congress can take qsSlJ.
in promoting movement in
energy efficiency (why" I don't
all automobiles get 50-plus
miles per gallon today?), then
this country will be able to
lead the world again in some-
thing other than warfare.

are being taught to analyze

Kilwin's opening May 1


Chocoholics, you have three weeks to wait for the opening of Kilwin's of Venice, according to
owner Dennis Holly, left, and his son, Nathan, who will operate the new store.


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWSCOLUMNIST


Passersby will watch the
Kilwin's team paddling 20 dif-
ferent fudges on the marble
slab tables; operating the waf-


fle-making machines; and dip-
ping apples and pretzel rods
into dark, milk and white
chocolate. Sampling will be
offered in the store. Fine
chocolates and fudges made in
the store and seasonal prod-


ucts will be available, with a
seating area to the rear. "We feel
Venice is a great community,"
said Holly. 'Everybody going by
just loves it here and we're
excited about making this
major commitment."

PGT Inc. Customer Service Representative Al Edwards, of Bradenton, participated in a corporate

New Village Pharmacy for Nokomis


Jeff and Sarah Young hope
to open Nokomis Village
Shops Village Pharmacy,
1095-B Tamiami Trail, May 1.
It will be in the former Dollar
Plus premises.
The Youngs intend to have
a grand opening with choles-
terol testing and celebration
services.
In the 3,000-square-foot
pharmacy they will offer
home delivery together with a
comprehensive selection of
equipment for the physically
challenged, hospital beds and
wheelchairs.
This will be Youngs' third
pharmacy in this area; they
expect to hire 12 people.
They opened Englewood
Pharmacy, 900 E. Pine St., in
1999 and two years ago they
acquired the Venice Apoth-
ecary, 560 The Rialto, adjoin-
ing Venice Regional Medical
Center.
"Our success is we provide
simple good old fashioned
service," commented Young.
Hot Nails will continue
providing its specialized ser-
vices in its existing location at
1095-C Tamiami Trail, No-
komis Village.
Deals are being made
"I predict a gangbuster
year in real estate in 2006
because prices have bot-
tomed out so it's truly a buy-
ers' market and there are
some really fabulous deals,"
commented Marilyn Schott,
a Nokomis resident who
manages 60 agents in Mi-
chael Saunders' Siesta Key
office.
With so many deals under
$300,000 it's truly a time for
people to quit fearing any-
thing. If they have the money,
the financing still can be
arranged easily.
The cold weather cooled
off the gulf this year, and she
believes the hurricane season
will be nothing, allowing
Florida to regain the confi-


dence of many visitors mak-
ing summer and fall a gang-
buster year.
In a recent $2.4 million
deal seller and buyer were
$50,000' apart. The buyer
needed a new sailboat to use
the seller's dock, so to com-
plete the sale the seller and
the Realtor kicked in some
money and brought it togeth-
er.
Another downtown
store opens Sundays
"We have noticed so many
people strolling the avenue
on Sunday and when they
have seen me working they
have tapped on the store win-
dow," said Juanita Elliott.
She is manager of The
Green Butterfly, 211 W.
Miami Ave., which has joined
the growing list of Venice
downtown stores opening on
Sunday but not Easter
Sunday.
Proceeds from the store
benefit the Loveland Center
for developmentally disabled
adults.
Elliott lives on the island
and, after working in the store
for four years, became man-
ager in February.
Five volunteers on each
shift change 13 times weekly,
operating the store from 9
a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday
through Saturday and noon
to 3 p.m. Sunday.
Between 9 and 11 a.m.
daily people consign high-
quality crystal, fine china and
furniture for 60 days.
The Green Butterfly will
come to estates and downsiz-
ing situations to identify
saleable items, pack them
and pick them up. Call 485-
6223.
Bookkeepers required
Are you, or do you know of,
a recently retired bookkeeper
or someone with accounting
experience who would give
up a few hours a week to
assist the Venice Area Mobile
Meals Inc.?
This 100 percent volunteer
organization providing meals
to 140 people in the greater
Venice area has introduced
an invoicing system at its
Village On The Isles office.
"It's crunch time with the
snowbirds going north and
our introducing the new in-
voicing system," commented
Clyde Young, president.
Drivers, including people
ranging from their mid-30s to


91, operate 14 routes deliver-
ing on average 10 dinners
between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30
p.m. Monday though Satur-
day, but nolonger have to col-
lect payments.
Five volunteer drivers are.
required for nex't week. Call
488-1889 or 223-2076.
Opening this month
"Barring any unforeseen
problems we're opening at
the end of this month," con-
firmed Joe Borza, owner of
the Pan Asian Restaurant,
17-A Brickyard Plaza on U.S.
41 Bypass, Venice, in the for-
mer Joseph Anthony's.
Paperwork relating to their
Oklahoma company delayed
the -opening of this new
Asian-style dining spot,
which will feature floor pillow
seating with podium tables
and standard seating for
patrons to enjoy the Korean
and Chinese menu. Call 400-

STAFF REPORT


The South West Florida
Chapter of the American Red
Cross is asking local compa-
nies to contribute to disaster-
relief efforts nationwide by
encouraging teams of em-
ployees to volunteer.
The local chapter, located
in Sarasota, prf'des training
to volunteers prior to depar-
ture and asks for a two-week
minimum commitment.
There are no guarantees
where volunteers will be de-
ployed, but assignments can
be anywhere in the country
where help is needed.
One area company, Ven-
ice-based window and door
manufacturer PGT Inc., is
encouraging employees to
volunteer by paying up to
three weeks of salary while
employees are providing
assistance. The Red Cross has
already trained three teams of
PGT employees.
After Hurricane Katrina,

*


employees traveled to Louis-
iana, Mississippi and the Flor-
ida Keys and provided assis-
tance such as setting up shel-
ters, delivering and passing out
meals, and coordinating vol-
unteers for family services.
PGT is the first Sarasota-
area company to participate
and is serving as a model for
'the "Red Cross to grow the
program regionally.
"PGT has shown tremen-
dous support for this pro-
gram," said Ifiaki Rezola,
South West Florida Red Cross
senior director of planning
and preparedness. "We would
love to see more companies
follow their example."
Nearly half of PGT's em-
ployees were directly affected
in 2004 by Hurricane Charley.
For PGT employee Kathie
Jette, helping the Red Cross
was even more important
after seeing firsthand the
destruction caused by Hur-
ricane Charley.
"It was a way to say thank


you to people that donated
items, supplies or their time
to make our employees feel a
little more comfortable dur-
ing a.very horrible time," said
Jette.
Since its founding in 1881
by visionary leader Clara
Barton, the American Red
Cross has been the nation's
premier emergency lesvA se
r ganization.
As part of -a worldwide
movement that offers neutral
humanitarian care to the vic-
tims of war, the American Red
Cross distinguished itself by
also aiding victims of devastat-
ing natural disasters. Over the
years, the organization has
expanded its services, always
with the aim of preventing and
relieving suffering.

Some simple tips for saving gasoline


STAFF REPORT


With Florida's average gas-
oline prices hovering right
around $2.57 per gallon,
Douglas Jeep Inc. has some
tips to help customers maxi-
mize the fuel economy of
their vehicles.
"The pressure at the pump
can be particularly difficult


for drivers, but there are some
easy ways to cut down the
amount of fuel you're using
without cutting down on the
time you spend behind the
wheel," said Gregory Douglas
withDouglas Jeep Inc. inVen-
ice.
Here are some things that
could pay off in fewer stops at
the gas pump:


Slow down. Every 5 mph
over 65 mph can decrease
fuel economy by as much as 7
percent.
Use modest acceleration
when possible, minimizing
"jackrabbit" starts.
Prudent use of air condi-
tioning and other accessories

Prescribed burns follow strict rules


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR


It may seem like an oxy-
moron, but burning trees and
bushes to the ground may
actually help improve them.
At least, Sarasota County
land managers think so.
Belinda Perry, a natural
resource manager for
Sarasota County, said, "The
prescribed-bum program is a
tool we use to manage natur-
al resources. When properly
nian,aged, fire has several
,enefis."
Among those benefits, Perry
said,fire can reduce the amount
of dry, combustible fuel on land
and reduce the likelihood of a
wild brush fire later.
Fire can restore or improve
biological diversity by remov-
ing dense vegetation and
opening the ground to light. ,
New plants and flowers
will sprout following a fire,
providing food for wildlife.
Some wildlife, such as scrub
jays and gopher tortoise,
need a relatively clear area to
survive.
Once the land manager

has determined that fire
should be used at a given site,
the county must notify the
state Division of Forestry.
"The state has certain reg-
ulations that apply to pre-
scribed burns," Perry said.
"You can't start before 9 a.m.
and by sundown you have to
assure that the fire will not
spread."
She said that once the


burn is completed, they per-
form "mop up." That means
that personnel "go around the
site and make sure nothing is
left smoking."
They try to limit the amount
of smoke because they know it
can be a nuisance for nearby
homeowners, she said.
Perry said, "When we do
these bums, we work with the
local fire departments. There


is also a Fire Mitigation
Specialist who is part of the
county fire department."
Perry acknowledges that
prescribed burns may affect
wildlife. Officials do the bums
during the dry season, which
is often the nesting season for
some animals.
"We try to minimize any
wildlife impacts," Perry said,
"but sometimes it can't be
avoided."
She said native animals
have evolved over time to co-
exist vith natural fires.
She cited the.example of
sandhill cranes Ithain nest in
the wedands." Because it's
damp there, the wetlands do
not burn and the crane chicks
are protected.
She said that, in her experi-
ence, the animals affected the
most are not native. Arm-
adillos, feral hogs and Cuban
anoles (a type of lizard) have
not evolved to adapt to sea-
sonal fires.
"Fire is a part of the natur-
al system," Perry said. "If we
don't have any (prescribed)
burning, we are vulnerable to
catastrophic fires."


Breathalyzer manufacturer admits software breached


BYTOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


Venice attorney Robert
Harrison summed up Tues-
day's breathalyzer court hear-
ing with a metaphor.
"The state took us on a
fishing expedition," Harrison
said, "and I caught a 150-
pound tarpon."
At the heart of the In-
toxilyzer 5000 (breathalyzer
used in Sarasota and Manatee
counties) issue is whether
repairs or modifications to
the instruments may have
affected the results of DUI
tests.
"The manufacturer has
admitted the (source) code
for Florida has been messed
with, there was some monkey
business going on," Harrison
said. "That (code) is one of the

safety valves to avoid a false
positive."
Maker tosses subpoena
Interestingly, Hatrison said
the manufacturer "blew off a
subpoena" to show evidence
why it should not show the
Intoxilyzer software. He said
that could lead to a contempt
charge.
The manufacturer has
steadfastly refused to reveal
the software. It said showing
the software, or source code,
would reveal "trade secrets."
Intoxilyzers in other Flor-
ida counties have been im-
properly modified with unap-
proved parts, according to
Harrison.
The hearing was held
before Sarasota County Judge
David Dinkin and Manatee


County Judge Douglas Hend-
erson. Dinkin and Henderson
were members of a tribunal
that presided over previous
hearings.
Important ruling
Harrison and other attor-
neys who joined the case rep-
resent more than 150 DUI
cases.
A three-judge panel ruled
in December 2005 that the
state cannot simply introduce
breathalyzer results in a DUI
case. It must prove them by
bringing in scientists to
examine and attest to the ma-
chine's software.
Additionally, the tribunal
ordered the state to turn over
all information about the

to attorneys challenging the

Lady Indians win final 3 regular season games


STAFF REPORT


The Venice High varsity
softball team finished off the
regular season in typical fash-
ion this week three games,
three wins.
The Lady Indians played
three consecutive nights,
two road games sandwiched
around a home game.
Thursday's victory at Car-
dinal Mooney gives Venice a
23-2 record.
Following is a rundown of
the three games:

Heather Laird was the

homered in the first meet-

I guess it's like anything
else one must put in their
time to accomplish great
deeds. That's the way it is at
the Venice Jetties. If you go
often enough, the law of aver-
ages will fall into place.
It definitely hasn't been
steady, great fishing. One
morning last week, just
about everyone was catch-
ing several pompano at the
south jetty. The next morn-
ing, zilch.
Many times in past years.
the fishing would be just like
it is now and as I pull up to
the jetty, I see rods bent and
fish jumping. The key ele-
'ment is that there is plenty
of bait out there and also
plenty of mullet to attract the
big boys. I understand that
the beaches are also slow.
You can look out into the
gulf and see hundreds of
birds in different areas at-
tacking the b.aitfish. Appar-
ently, the bait is being driv-
en to the surface by feeding
fish. Eventually the bait pods
will make it to the jetties and
that will be the time to be
there.
Last Wednesday evening,
the ladyfish were thick at the
south jetty for about two
hours. As usual, I missed it,
but everyone was catching
them.
Another afternoon, I saw
what I think was bonita
attacking the bait. I also saw
the jacks doing the same
several times. '
Perhaps we should do
what the Skyway (Tampa
Bay) people do. They phone
their buddies when the
mackerel bite starts or when
the tarpon start going nuts
under the bridges. I can see
it now, a hundred cars com-
ing down the Esplanade and
speeding past Crow's Nest.
Then they come to the
creeping tourists as they
approach the jetty I can hear
those horns blowing.
The sheepshead are still
biting, but most are under-
sized. This past week has
been very slow, unless you
were out in the near-gulf.
Just about everyone that
ventures out between one-
three miles is catching
Spanish and king mackerel.
Fellow Sheepsheadites, we'll
talk again next week.

Courtside to host Suncoast


Senior Championships


STAFF REPORT


Courtside Tennis Club has
been a part of the Venice area
tennis scene since 1977, when
a group of tennis enthusiasts
decided to "organize, equip,
and operate a tennis club for
the pleasure and recreation of
its members and to promote
the development of tennis in
the community."
Courtside is for players
who find tennis "a way of
life."
For the 28th consecutive
year, Courtside Tennis Club
will host the Suncoast Senior
Championships. This USTA
Sanctioned and Designated
Tournament begins on Wed-
nesday, April 26, with the
preliminary men's singles
matches and concludes on
Sunday, April 30, with the
Men's & Ladies Singles &
Doubles Finals.
For the second consecutive
year, the Suncoast Senior
Championships is being
sponsored by the Bank of
Venice whose financial assis-
tance enables Courtside to
present a great tournament.
We are very appreciative.
The Suncoast Senior
Championships continues to
be one of the most highly
competitive tournaments
held in Florida annually. This
year, as in the past, many of
the recently concluded win-


ners/finalists of the USTA
Florida State Senior Men's
Tournament are entered-in
the tournament.
The majority of the tourna-
ment entrants are Florida resi-
dents. As in the past, since
the tournament is open, the
Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and
Southeast regions of the
country will be well represent-
ed delayed "snowbird"
departures coupled with the
importance of the event in
both regional and national
rankings ensures a very com-
petitive tournament.

Sarasota County iteracy.SummitI


Community leaders come together to brainstorm.


BY SHELLEY DRAPER
STAFF WRITER

More than 40 million peo-
ple in the United States cannot
read well enough to function
in society, said Nancy Pike,
director of the Sarasota
County Library, putting a
number on the "face of litera-
cy."
Pike opened the Literacy
Summit II on Tuesday. Adult
literacy as a community con-
cern was the focus of the sum-
mit in Sarasota at the Girls
Scout Auditorium in Sarasota.
As they did for part one of
the Literacy Summit on March
7, Tim Dutton of Sarasota
County Openly Plans for
Excellence and Debra Jacobs
of the William G. Selby and
Marie Selby Foundation facili-
tated the conversation.
At this session 82 organiza-
tions including individuals
and representatives from
libraries, businesses, schools
and literacy programs for chil-
dren and adults explored
ways to improve comprehen-
sive regional literacy.
According to the U.S.
Department of Education, lit-


eracy is not defined by the
ability to pass a standardized
test, but rather is the ability of
individuals to use written
information to function in
society and to achieve goals.

Opening the doors
After Pike's introduction,
the participants broke into
small groups for discussions.
At this meeting, groups of
seven or eight participants sat
at 16 tables to discuss the pro-
grams and the future chal-
lenges to improve literacy in
the county.
"The goal of the Literacy
Summits is to design a
pipeline between all these
great organizations represent-
ed here today," said Jacobs.
According to a general con-
sensus, there is a recurring
theme involving the problem
of adults being reluctant to
seek help or to admit there is a
problem with literacy.
'"Looking at people whose
literacy skills are low is looking
at only their deficits. Once you
look at the gifts that all people
have to offer, it opens up the
doors to teaching adult litera-
cy," said Dutton. "Seeing an


individual's other gifts, their
skills in other areas, helps to
overcome the problem of feel-
ing inadequate, and allows
them to become open to liter-
acy assistance."
."For a majority of our
employees, English is a sec-
ond language, and we have
provided them with English
language education," said
Charlotte Jordan, director of
Human Resources at the
Sarasota Ritz-Carlton. "And in
return, they are providing our
other staff members with
Spanish lessons."
Community activist and
longtime Sarasota resident
Fredd Adkins emphasized the
need for all aspects of com-
munication in the community
to come together. The local TV
stations and the news media
are integral parts of a literate
community.
"Literacy increases self-
esteem and increases a per-
son's ability to achieve their
life .goals, no matter what,
those goals may be." said
Jacobs. "Literacy is a socioeco-
nomic problem as well as a
language issue."

DO YOU HAVE A STORY

IDEA FOR OUR TOWN?


ings.
There was even a flicker of a smile
on Eastwood's face when he looked
at the painting depicting his third
son many years earlier. The boy in
the painting was garbed as a
Revolutionary War drummer boy;
the words "Stoney Creek" show on
the tri-cornered hat. Eastwood's
long-term memory was perhaps
calling himn back to days and faces
that had vanished as does the morn-
ing dew that glistens on spider webs
in the fields of his former Con-
necticut home.
It is years later and Eastwood is a
resident ofAvalon, the memory sup-
port unit of Pinebrook Rehabil-
itation and Nursing Home in Venice.
No longer is he the robust ex-Marine
body builder, loving husband and
father of five and an artist who filled
canvas after canvas with scenes
from nature, some minutely realis-
tic, others more whimsical.
Art is Eastwood's tie between the
present and the past.
"I haven't seen these for a while,"
he said in a quiet tentative voice.
When asked questions relating to


his paintings, the answers come
slowly. Yet his remarks are lucid, the
recall showing in the eyes and it is
obvious he wants to remain a bit
longer looking at his works.
Now that talent, a "God-given
gift" in the words ofAnne, his wife of
54 years, and an artist, in her own
right, is hidden behind a shifting
mind curtain that brings yesteryear
closer than today. Eastwood has
been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, a
degenerative disease that claims the
present as its cost for retaining the
past. As the disease progresses,
things that occur in the present dis-
appear as fast as they happen, while
some long-forgotten times come to
the surface.
"The paintings were completed
before he became a resident here in
May of last year," said Connie Gens,
R.N. and director of Avalon. "He no
longer has any desire to paint, but
he has done a lot of pencil draw-
ings."
The pencil drawings also are dis-
played on a bulletin board dedicat-
ed to his art while he is a resident at
Pinebrook. The drawings, like his


paintings, are mostly of wildlife.
Art is one of many activities
offered 10-hours per day to the 20
residents of the unit under the care
of a staff that is handpicked for its
ability to work in a unit demanding
patience and love: three Certified
Nurse's Assistants, one Registered
Nurse, and one activity assistant.
Working in an Alzheimer's unit is
not a profession for the weak-of-
heart.
"You either love the profession or
not," Gens said. "There can be no
halfhearted efforts."
A former teacher in western New
York, this five-year veteran of Avalon
has found that her two professions,
nursing and teaching, are both put
to use during her day, which also
includes staff training about de-
mentia, stressing the recognition of
resident behaviors.
"They (the residents) have an
inability to tell you what they want
or how they are feeling," she said.
"The acting out behaviors are acting
out of needs, and the behaviors
must be attended to quickly before
they escalate into a problem."


Behaviors are also a fact she
points out to family members who
are in-the-home primary caregivers
for someone suffering from demen-
tia.
"They have to remember that the
acting out or the person suddenly
calling them a bad name is not the
real person" she said. "It's the dis-
ease."
Gens offers this nugget of wis-
dom: "Dementia is not a death sen-
tence. There is still a lot of the real
person left to love, and with life
expectancy for dementia patients
now 12 to 16 years, there is a lot
longer time to offer that love. Our
goal is to celebrate their (the
patients) strengths and keep them
both physically and mentally func-
tional for as long as possible."
"One of the ways that process
begins," said Gens, "is getting a new
resident off medications as soon as
possible after arrival, without threat-
ening any life needs.
"With, a new resident on meds,
we don't see the real person under-

County receives grant for community


partnership in advance of sea turtle nesting


STAFF REPORT


Sarasota County has re-
ceived an $8,617 grant for its
innovative "Partnership for
Lighting Improvement" pro-
ject, which funds lighting
upgrades on coastal proper-
ties in exchange for a com-
mitment from property man-
agement 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 protec-
tion through the sales of
Florida's Sea Turtle specialty
license plate.
"Every May through Oc-
tober, our local beaches be-
come important habitat for
the largest congregation of
sea turtle nesting on the
Gulf Coast of Florida," says
Sarasota County Project Sci-
entist Kenya Leonard. It is an
annual ritual of nature when
thousands of loggerhead sea
turtles crawl ashore to create
new generations.
"It's so important to re-
member that with the privi-
lege of sharing our beaches
with these creatures comes
great responsibility," says
Leonard. As head of the
county's sea turtle program,
she urges residents and busi-
nesses with properties along
the water to pay attention to
these seasonal visitors I so
they can 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 man-
made light is the leading

SVCA Easter egg


hunt canceled


ELLEN HILLSTROM



It is with deep regret I
announce the South Venice
Civic Association's annual
Easter Egg Hunt scheduled
for Saturday,* April 15, has
been canceled.
This children's activity has
been a long tradition. Last
year for the first time, we
moved it from Challenger
Park to our community center
because the children's games
and other entertainment
were more comfortable in air
conditioning. The hunt took
place in the parking lot areas
around the building.
The same day the hall had
been rented for a wed-
ding and reception. The com-
mittee thought the rental was
an evening affair, which it
usually is, so there would be
no conflict.
As it turned out, the wed-
ding is at 1 in the afternoon,
the exact time of the Easter
egg hunt, followed by a big
reception.
Obviously, cars and kids
could not be at the same
place at the same time, so we
y to te pre\iousl;.
sc di. 0,e'd event..,." ,,, ,,,,
What is unfortunate is that
the children in the greater
Venice area liked to attend the
downtown Easter Egg hunt
from 9 to 11 a.m. (this year at
Centennial Park), then come
on down to ours in the after-
noon. Sorry, the kids will have
only one this year.
Also downtown tom-
orrow is the Arts and Culture
Showcase. It will be held at
the new Foundation Park at


Venice Little Theatre from 9
a.m. to 4 p.m. There is a won-
derful children's. section that
will have interactive arts
demonstrations. Bring the
kids to that one after the
downtown hunt. You can walk
from one to the other.
In any event, a very Happy
Easter to all.
Another change: The musi-
cal artists who were to be the
program for the SVCA general
meeting next Monday, April
17, 7 p.m., 720 Alligator Drive,
had to cancel. In their place,
the program will be about a
very serious and immed-
iate problem for homeown-
ers: insurance rates in flood
hazard areas and the current
insurance crisis.
Desiree Companion, com-
munity rating system coordi-
nator for Sarasota County
Government, is an expert in
her field. .Her presenta-
tion will include an explana-
tion of the Community Rating
System Program, higher
standards in Sarasota County
as they relate to the flood-
plains and what residents
should know in order to pro-
tect their largest asset, their
home.
With Des will be a repre-
sentative from the Edu-
cation Section of AAA Auto
Club, Nina Heath, who will
advise us on single-family
insurance in a low- or pre-
ferred-risk group as well as
high risk.
I don't know about you, but
my homeowner insurance
doubled last year and I want
to know where the indus-
try is going \hplth epro-.,
blem ,, .. I
The public is invited to
attend and stay after the busi-
ness meeting for our usual
refreshments and cama-
raderie. Maybe they will
serve leftover Easter eggs
and candy, too.

Is it a 'pime' or a'denny'?


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR


Ed Brooke didn't know
what to think when he re-
ceived an odd coin as change
from the North Port Publix
five years ago..
The coin is silver like a dime,
but stamped with the indicia
of a penny. Brooke has taken
to calling, it his "11-cent
piece."
The dime/penny appar-
ently started its numismatic
life as a silver-colored dime.
It's the size of a penny, a little
larger than a dime.
On the obverse (the face
side), you can make out a bit
of the outline of Roosevelt's
profile. Otherwise, it bears a
clear image of Lincoln's por-
trait along with the standard
text ("In God We Trust" and
"Liberty") and the date it was
minted, 1999.
The reverse gives away the
coin's former life as a dime.
Just under the hybrid penny's
Lincoln Memorial is a clear
image of part of the olive
branch that, on a true dime, is
to the left of the torch. You can
also make out a few letters of
the "E Pluribus Unum" phrase
just under the olive branch
that, on a true dime, crosses at
the bottom of the torch.
"I don't know whether to
consider it worth a penny or
10 cents," Brooke says, tongue
in cheek.
Brooke has taken the
hybrid coin to coin shops, but
no one has been able to tell
him its value. He's tried to
reach professional numisma-
tists but has not-found one
willing to. take a guess as to its,
woeth. Tr ,? b",,,hr ,
"One -guy .wanted to'gives
me $125 for it," Brooke said.
However, until he knows its
real worth, he does not want
to give it up.
"I think it's probably worth
more than 11 cents, though,"
he added.

Zdravecky named CEO of the Year at conference


STAFF REPORT


Barbara A. Zdravecky, RN,
president/CEO of Planned
Parenthood of Southwest and
Central Florida Inc., (PPSW-
CF) was named CEO of the
Year by Planned Parenthood
Federation of America (PPFA)
last week as the 2006 winner
of the highly coveted Ruth
Green Award. Zdravecky was
designated most outstanding
CEO at the PPFA annual
awards banquet held March
30 during its "Hope, Justice,
Freedom" themed annual


meeting in Washington, D.C.
The Ruth Green Award is
the most prestigious recogni-
tion that a CEO can receive
from their peers. Selection
criteria for receiving the
award include excellent per-
formance in facilitating board
development in public affairs,
resource development and
planning; service to the
Planned Parenthood Feder-
ation beyond the affiliate
level; and nomination by the
board chair of the chief exec-
utive's affiliate.
Zdravecky has been at the


helm of PPSWCF for the past
12 years. According to Walt
Cannon, immediate past
board chair who nominated
her for the award, "Barbara is
the most committed and
compassionate woman I've
ever worked with, who is
totally dedicated to the thou-
sands of men, women and
teens that we help each year."
"Winning this award
means we've .got the most
outstanding CEO in the
national Planned Parehthood
ranks which is a tremendous
source of pride for all of us


here in Southwest and Cen-
tral Florida," he continued.
In addition to garnering
the Ruth Green, Award,
PPSWCF also won a national
Affiliate Excellence Award for
its strong volunteer program
at the annual conference. In
past years, the Sarasota-"
based affiliate has also been
the recipient of previous
PPFA awards for its SOURCE
Teen Theatre program and
excellence in clinical and
social research for its joint
CDC-sponsored study on

University of South Florida. In
addition, the local nonprofit
agency was also honored at
the national level in 1-997
through PPFA's "Maggie"
Award, given to Sarasota
Magazine for Susan Burns,
feature story on the affiliate's
courageous introduction df
abortion services.
The Ruth Green Award was
established in 1981 to honor a
remarkable woman who
served Planned Parenthood
as a volunteer, executive di-
rector and ambassador-at-
large for the mission of
Planned Parenthood. Ruth
Green believed in the power.
of a strong. partnership be-
tween a chief executive officer
and their board. The award is
intended to recognize and
help foster appreciation for
that aspect of the CEO's role
throughput the Federation.
Past recipients have included
Kay Scott, Planned Parent-
hood of Georgia; Jill June,
Planned Parenthood of Great-
er Iowa; and Gloria Feldt,
Planned Parenthood of Cen-
tral and Northern Arizona,
who later went on to become
PPFA's president for many
years.
Planned Parenthood of
Southwest and Central Flor-
ida was founded in 1966. The
agency presently provides

In 1956, Elsa Scherer Burrows

it remain natural and un-

into a state park for the enjoy-

Today, the park represents
the "Real Florida" Elsa knew
in the 30s and 40s, when she
lived with her family in
Osprey.
The park is located 6
miles south of Sarasota at
1843 South Tamiami Trail.

found out that punctuation
had not been used before the
Middle Ages. Not very many
people knew how to read
before that time, and there
was no need to read aloud -
which is why punctuation
such as the comma and the
apostrophe was invented. Al-

LINN fiornam lst Green Sheet


with the addition of the
pirate-themed Rum Barrel
restaurant and bar. Located at
528 Front St. next to Pirate
Soul, the Rum Barrel evokes
the atmosphere of a tavern
from piracy's golden age
(1690 to 1730).
The restaurant opened in
February in conjunction with
Pirate Soul's debut of more
than a dozen rare nautical
artifacts including an 18th-
century spyglass and a
bronze astrolabe circa 1563.


Croce, former part owner
of the Philadelphia 76ers bas-
ketball team and a longtime
collector of pirate artifacts,
opened the 5,000-square-
foot, $10 million Pirate Soul
Museum early in- 2005.
Among its highlights are the
world's only authenticated
pirate treasure chest and one
of only two authenticated
pirate flags in the world.
The adjacent Rum Barrel is
open for lunch and dinner,
and can seat approximately


200 people in indoor and out-
door dining areas. Its full
selection of cocktail offerings
includes more than 100 rums
and a nautical "grog." The "get,
your hands dirty" menu fea-
tures pirate-themed items
like smoked turkey legs and
salmagundi stew as well as
local seafood selections,
burgers, appetizers and
hearty salads.
For more information, visit
rumbarrel.com and pirate-
soul.com.


and mused for a moment.
Was I merely a witness of
the grammatical evolution of
the apostrophe?
Was this bigger than every-
thing that I had ever known
before regarding grammar?
Would the apostrophe
soon be a mere memory? An
urban legend?
Something was definitely
happening. .
Who let this happen?
'Is there some sort of gram-
mar council, punctuation


division, that decided it was
time for the apostrophe to
retire?
Finally and.begrudgingly, I
realized that the disappear-
ance of my beloved apostro-
phe was larger than me. I
decided to treat it as if a good
friend had passed, and.
mourn it.
I know that the apostrophe
has-vilue, and when I reach a
certain age that permits me to
recount strange tales of ages
past, I will be able to tell the


children of the good old days
when an upside-down com-
ma, floating between letters,
had the ability to join words
together with a single tick and
show possession without a
receipt.
Goodbye, my friend. You
will be missed.

HOROSCOPE April 14-20


ARIES (March 21-April
19). Sodal studies
experts say people
usually decide within two sec-
onds whether they are attract-
ed or repelled by a person.
You're so psychic today, you
pretty much know before
you even lay eyes on the other
person.

TAURUS (April 20-May
20). So many choices
arise. Do you want
the thrill of approaching a
stranger or the contentment
of familiar colleagues? The
comfort of home or the
uncertain excitement of the
nightlife? You win when you
choose quickly.

GEMINI (May 21-June
21). You'll be adding
Sto a collection of
some kind. It's such a wonder-
ful score when you find that
beloved piece. Share your
enthusiasm. You're a master
of conversation tonight.

,. CANCER (June 22-July
22). The stars help you
lighten up it's as if
you have feathers on your feet.
You move through your day
anonymously, gifting people
with your happy thoughts
of them.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). Take the guess-
work out of a work
situation by going straight to
the person who knows all -
or at least knows "most." There
is such a person. In fact, he or
she has probably written a
book or article about your very
predicament.

SSCORPIO (Oct. 24-
Nov. 21). Givers gain.
You're a giver today
- in fact, you're just looking
for people who need what you
have to offer. Pisces and Leo
people are particularly good
ties to nurture.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21). The plan-
ets encourage you
to speak up about the issue on
your mind. If you can deliver
your message without a worry
about what kind of response
you'll receive, you'll communi-
cate your truth.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). A deadline
r pushes you to do your
best work yet. Of course, you'll
feel wonderful once it's all
turned in and there's nothing *
more you can do, but why wait
when you can feel wonderful
now?


THE KEY: Excellent YTT | Good yy v Fair | Poor y



'Friends With Money'


BY CHRISTY LEMIRE
GUEST WRITER

The rich aren't that differ-
ent in "Friends With Money."
They bicker with their
spouses. They make bad
choices. They wonder what
they're doing with their lives
as they hit their mid-40s, all
of which writer-director
Nicole Holofcener depicts
with her typically observant
dialogue and wry humor.
You could call it an intelli-
gent chick flick. The only
thing that's wrong with it is
that it leaves you wanting
more. (How rare is that? In a
world where filmmakers can't
seem to restrain themselves,
and most movies are too
long, this one actually feels
too short.).



The excellent ensemble
of Jennifer Aniston, Frances
McDormand, Catherine
Keener and Joan Cusack get
the pleasure of breathing
life into Holofcener's well-
drawn characters; they talk
like real people talk when no
one else is around.
Aniston plays Olivia, a sin-
gle, aimless pothead who quit
her job as a teacher at an
exclusive Los Angeles school
and now ekes outa living
cleaning houses. When we
first see her, she's flushed from
having just finished pleasur-
ing herself with a client's sex
toy, later she will troll from
one department store to
another, mooching free sam-
ples of overpriced face cream
because she can't afford to
buy them. These small details


tell us everything we need to
know about her.
The other =actresses play
her married.friends, who feel
sorry for her until their own
seemingly perfect personal
lives begin to crumble.
Keener's Christine and her
husband, David are a screen-
writing duo in the midst of
adding a second floor to their
home, which will offer them
ocean views from their bed-
room while blocking every-
one else's, making them
neighborhood pariahs.
McDormand co-stars as
Jane, a fashion designer liv-
ing in a stunning modern
house with her husband,
Aaron, whose love of clothing
and slightly effeminate man-
ner make everyone suspect
he's gay.


The wealthiest, happiest
and least developed pair are
Cusack's Franny and her hus- -
band; Matt, whose source of
money is unspecified and un-
limited, and whose biggest
quibble is over how much to
spend on shoes for their kids.
But Franny also delivers
one of the film's most pierc-
ing lines: "I sometimes won-
der if we met now, Wied 1Y"
friends," she says of Olivia.
They're all incredibly differ-
ent women Holofcener
never indicates how they
met even in an offhanded
way, which isn't a big deal
but it would be nice to know
- and as they mature
they're finding that money,
or a lack thereof, is becoming
an increasingly unavoidable
topic.

Duck Season
Writer/director Fernando Eimbcke
lovingly brings a touching tale to
life. Shot in black-and-white and on
a minuscule budget, Eimbcke's film
is a slice-of-life comedy that takes

a Mexico City apartment. Flama
(Daniel Miranda) and Moko (Diego
Catano) are two bored teenagers
who plan a day of unsupervised fun
together in Flama's mother's hum-
ble abode. Videogames, Coca-Cola,
and pizza are high on their list of
priorities, but things don't quite 'go
according to plan. First, a slightly
older female neighbor, Rita (Danny
Perea), arrives to bake a cake in
the kitchen. Then the pizza man
arrives and the boys challenge him
to a soccer video game as payment
for the food. But when the power in
the building cuts out mid-game the
fun really starts as the foursome
argue, clown around, and do any-
thing they can to stave off the bore-
dom that threatens to engulf them.

WELL BEING


Myths and realities about


maintaining healthy bones


11B
FRIDAY
APRIL 14,2006


TideWell Hospice and Palliative


Care volunteer training set


SUZY COHEN, R.PH.
COLUMNIST

Q: I drink lots of milk, so I
don't think I have to worry
about a hip fracture anytime
soon, but I'm over 50 and my
doctor says I have some bone
loss. Can you tell me about
treatments? T.G., Lodi, Calif.
A: It's a myth to think that
drinking lots of milk will pro-
tect you from osteoporosis.
The ads sound convincing,
but cow's milk may not be
the best source of calcium for
everyone. Many people
develop allergies to it, as well
as digestive problems. True,
dairy is a good source of cal-
cium, but it may not be the
best. I say that because,
shockingly, humans absorb
only 32 percent of the calci-
umn from cow's milk.
According to the American
Journal of Clinical Nutrition,
our calcium-absorption rate
is much higher for such veg-
etables as Brussels sprouts,
mustard greens, broccoli,
turnip greens and kale.


Calcium is very important
to bones, but certain medica-
tions, such as laxatives,
seizure meds, digoxin,
steroids, some water pills
and acid reducers, can ;
deplete your body's supply of
it.
Vitamin D is important. It
promotes better absorption
of calcium into the bones.
Recent studies, however,
show that many people are
deficient in it. The less vita-
min D we have, the less calci-
um we deposit into our
bones. A recent study
showed that long-term
dietary supplementation
with vitamin D and calcium
significantly reduced the like-
lihood of falling among older
women, by 46 percent!
Medications such as Xehical,
mineral oil and
Cholestyramine can reduce
D in the body. So can seizure
meds, steroids and laxatives.
Jot down these other
nutrients because they, too,
support bone health: boron,
manganese, copper, zinc, B
complex and cod liver oil.
The bisphosphonate
drugs are the most popular
drugs used for osteoporosis
today. But bisphosphonates
are very old compounds.
They were traditionally used
in the textile and fertilizer
industry. The first pharma-"
ceutical bisphosphonate
drug was Fosamax, followed
by Actonel and then Boniva.

These medications are irri-
tating to the GI tract. I have
discussed in prior columns
how to take them properly.
Drinking water is very impor-
tant with each dose. As more
data comes in, we will be
able to tell what the long-
term consequences and out-
comes are for these medica-
tions.
I think it's best to prevent
the breakdown of bones as
much as possible, rather than
treat the condition. Eat less
meat meat-eaters lose cal-
cium faster and stockpile
some of the nutrients I've
mentioned.
One last thought: ipri-
flavone. It is a synthetic
flavonoid related to soy and it
seems to help build bone
mass.
Reader's comment
Suzy, you are blessing to
my family. Over the years we
have incorporated many of
your suggestions into our
healthcare regimen, and have
enjoyed the results.
Surprisingly, after seeing
the positive effects on our

practice.
If you knew my doctor,
you would know that this is a
miracle. I wish your column

Good F'
protects you
f 7 against back pain as
well as improves your overall health
and appearance. Conversely, poor
posture promotes back pain and can
affect the position and function of your
abdominal organs, inhibit breathing and oxygen
intake, and cause headaches. The back has three
natural curves: a slight forward curve in the
neck, a slight backward curve in the upper back,
and a slight forward curve in the low back.
When these curves are in proper alignment, the
spine, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles are in
balance, and body weight is evenly distributed.
The payoff is less stress and strain on muscles,
joints, and ligaments, as well as reduced risk for
back, neck, and shoulder pain.
Bad posture is a lifetime scenario for most people.
Why wait until you're hurting to learn about your
treatment options? When you're hurting you may not
give this important decision the time and attention it
needs to make the best choice.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER,
we're currently accepting new patients and welcome
your call at 941-412-3800 to schedule an
appointment for a comprehensive chiropractic
evaluation. We're located at 1214-C Venice Ave.
East, where we will spend time talking with you to
evaluate the source of your health problem and
determine the most effective form of treatment.
We offer massage therapy and have 4 licensed
massage therapists on staff.
P.S. Some of the classic signs of poor posture
are a potbelly, rounded shoulders, and a jutted-out
neck and chin (known as forward head position).

Breaking matzo together


"Unless we remember,"
the English novelist Edgar
Morgan Foster wrote, "we
cannot understand."
Retelling the past in a way
that binds it to the present
has made Passover one of the
most memorable of all Jewish
holidays.
I remember the Passover
Seders spent with my mother
and my grandparents long,
long ago in their hometown.
I remember the table set
with all the ritual foods of
Passover that would be part of
the Seder; a table that at the
conclusion would be filled
with my. grandmother's
bountiful and delicious cook-
ing.
Perhaps what I remember
most was that as a young boy
I was made to feel so special;
to be able to raise my glass of
wine (albeit one containing
mostly seltzer) along with the
adults and to be the focus of
attention as my grandfather
called on me to read the four
questions that set the tone for
the Seder.
Children have always been
the focus of attention at
Seders because it is they who


we ask to remember and pass
on the story of the Israelites
flight from slavery to free-
dom.
Indeed God made the cen-
tral feature of the Seder, a
commandment "to tell your
children."
I think of this as I write
about the beautiful evening
spent at the communal
Passover Seder between the
members of Epiphany Ca-
thedral and the Jewish Center
of Venice; and presided over
by clergy from both faiths.
Our numbers were many
- more than 200 took part in
the inspiring rituals, songs
and foods symbolic of the
Seder and later sharing in the
covered, dishes that com-
prised the main meal.
"Why is this night different
from all other nights?"
There was an air of good
feeling as the children from
the Epiphany Cathedral ask-
ed the four questions and
then heard Rabbi Ann White
respond by reading from the
Hagaddah, the book that tells
the story of Passover.
"We were slaves to Pha-
raoh in Egypt and the Lord
our God took us out of there
with a strong hand... "
Watching members of the
two faiths sitting side by side,
raising their voices and cups
of wine in prayer and break-
ing matzo, the bread of afflic-
tion, together made me real-
ize that Passover is not only
about who we were but who
we are.
"We are all brothers and
sisters ... descendants of
Abraham to whom God first
spoke," said Bishop John


Nevins, whose strong belief in
our common heritage has
brought Catholics and Jews
together for many shared
spiritual experiences.
The history of our peoples
is interlocked; we are all God's
children.
Had God not set forth
Moses on a journey to Mt.
Sinai there would not have
been the Ten Command-
ments.
Inherent in God's Com-
mandments is the responsi-
bility we have to each other.
"In every generation, we
are commanded to see our-
selves as if we were taken out
of Egypt."
How we treat our neigh-
bors is as much of a religious
responsibility as how we wor-
ship God.
The migrant farm workers,
the homeless and the under-
privileged, the families strug-
gling to exist, the millions of
children without health in-
surance where are the
funds and programs that
could help break them free
from the bondage of poverty
and need?
"This is the bread of afflic-
tion which our ancestors ate
in the land of Egypt. Whoever
is hungry, let him come and
eat. Whoever is needy, let him
come and celebrate the Pass-
over with us."
Shalom.

Bennett Gross is a member
of the Jewish Center of Venice
as well as the Venice
Interfaith Community
Associations. He is active in
Catholic/Jewish interfaith
relations.

Possibilities are endless at Island Shores penthouse


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Since it was constructed in
1987, the Island Shores high-
rise condominium building
on Venice Beach has been
one of the city's most desir-
able places to live.
The reason is more than
location although its scenic
and well-manicured beach-
side site is a major draw. So
are the amenities, which
include an elegant clubhouse
with guest quarters that can
be rented by residents for the
use of overnight guests, an
exercise room and garage


parking for guests as well as
residents.
Views from all the resi-
dences are spectacular and
include both town and water
views but the corner pent-
house recently listed with
Hackworth Realtor Cindy
Fucsik offers views as far
north as the John Ringling
Causeway Bridge in Sarasota.
Filtering the sunlight on
the west side of the pent-
house are plantation shutters,
which extend the full width of
the 30.7-foot wide enclosed
lanai area. When the slats are
open, there is a panoramic
view of the beach and Gulf of


Mexico. A second balcony, off
the kitchen's eating area, is
open to the sky, offering city,
and gulf views.
Nine-foot ceilings add to
the spacious feel of the resi-
dence, which has a raised 13-
foot by 13.10-foot dining
room between the 13-foot by
19.4-foot kitchen and the
17.6-foot by 25-foot living
room.
There are three bedrooms,
including the master suite,
two full bathrooms and an en
suite laundry room.
On the beach side of the
building is a large heated
swimming pool for the use of


all residents and their guests.
For overnight guests of resi-
dents, there is a guest suite in
a separate community build-
ing, which also contains a
charming living room for
meetings or other gatherings
and an exercise room.
Island Shores is at 550 West
Flamingo Drive. Take Harbor
Drive to Gulf..Travel west on
Gulf to Flamingo.
Listed for $1,495,000, the
residence can be seen by
appointment.
Call Fucsik at 416-5103 or
485-9147 or call co-listing
agent Mark Fucsik at 416-
3009.


Residents of Island Shores can rent a guest bedroom located in
a separate community building on the beach side of the prop-
erty.


Mirrors frame the corner tub in the master bathroom, which has a crystal chandelier above the From the northeast corner of the lanai, on a clear day one can see the John Ringling Causeway
tub. Bridge in Sarasota.
