Suspect arrested,



charged with burglary


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Citizens of Venice, sleep
well tonight Morris A.
Walker is behind bars.
Venice police arrested
Walker, 25, of Punta Gorda,
Thursday, as the man they
believe'eommitted nearly 30
home burglaries on the south
end of Venice island over the
past year.
"The public needs to know
this guy is off the street,"
Venice Police Department
Detective Eric Hill, the lead
investigator in the case said.
"One of my concerns was if
he kept it up long enough,
somebody was going to get
hurt."
On April 12, Venice police
got a warrant for Walker's
arrest. He Was arrested at his


home in Punta GordaApril 13
with the assistance of the
Charlotte County Sheriffs Of-
fice.
Walker is charged with one
count of burglary and one
count of grand theft. He is
currently, being held in the
Charlotte County Jail on a
$30,000 bond.
Hill said other charges
against Walker are being pre-
pared. :
"I just haven't had a chance
to write them up yet," Hill
said.
Walker has a criminal his-
tory of burglaries, Hill said.
Mobile homes hit
According to the police
report, the burglaries hap-
pened at mobile homes in
Country Club Estates. Hill
said Walker would enter the


homes between the hours of
3 and 5 a.m. while the resi-
dents were sleeping, and steal
cash from wallets and purses,
but would leave the credit
cards.
Hill also said Walker took
cell phones, one of which
proved to be his undoing.
The victim of the burglary
for which Walker was charged
was able to provide Hill with a
list of phone calls made from
his phone after it was stolen.
One. of the numbers be-
longs to an 'African American
Chatline" called Vibeline,
owned by Boulevard Media
Inc., in Vancouver, British Co-
lumbia, Canada.,

Airport marina, housing top city council's work list


BY JLJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Venice should find out this fall if it will
receive a $2 million grant to help fund permit-
ting and design for a city-owned marina on
airport land.
And that's just one of the the big-ticket,
potentially controversial
items Venice City Council will
have on its annual to-do list.
Charter officers and council
members huddled up for two
days of policy review and
agenda setting last week dur-
ing their annual Strategic
Planning Workshop.
None of last year's unfin-
ished major goals develop- Black
ing an airport marina, three-
year union deals and a worker compensation
study was dropped from the list.
The latest additions are new height restric-
tion districts, possible density increases to
address housing affordability and bundling
land development applications.
It was the continuation of existing goals -


a city-owned marina and updating the air-
port's master plan that generated the most
caution from City Manager MartyBlack. The
airport appraisal report will leaydlto increased'
rents for tenants, and some community mem-
bers already are lining against building a mari-
na on airport land.
"We're giving away revenue,
J at the airport because of that
legacy (of low rents)," Black
said. "That will be difficult for
you to undo. ... We're really
behind the eight ball."
The conversation led to
council member John Sim-
monds, who's up for re-elec-
tion this year, to joke, "Can we
Simmonds do that sometime after No-
vember?"
Airport operations
City staff still are in the midst of updating
the Airport Master Plan, which includes all
aspects of the airport: infrastructure, revenue
generation and potential development.
Among the most highly volatile is the city's
land appraisal report, in which nearly every

area of rentals except for the Venice Golf
Association lease was rated as being below
market value. The Lake Venice Golf Club lease
was renegotiated several years ago following
complaints by the Federal Aviation Admin-
istration that the city wasn't charging enough.
Wherever contract agreements allow,
council members will be asked to increase
rents on airport businesses, T-hangars, mobile
homes, Holiday Condominiums and more.
Leases about a decade or more old were
created when the city was desperate for
renters because the airport was in a deep fi-
nancial hole, said City Attorney Bob An-


derson.
Now the airport has turned
around and can cover the day-
to-day expenses. But the
renter-friendly leases remain,
choking off the potential extra
money that could go toward- i
airport improvements.
"Folks, you've got to
remember, the airport has Anderson
only been in the black for
about the last five years. ... It
used to be,'How quickly could
we sign you to a lease?' "
Anderson said.
Density increases
Among the three new
action items, South County's
need for more affordable
housing to buy or rent was the Taylor
only one to not appear in any
way on last year's strategic plan.
The 2005 plan had height caps for East
Venice Avenue, and the method of partnering

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
STEVE SCHREIVER


About 100 people gathered
for a post-referendum meet-
ing at Sarasota Middle School
on April 6. Their goal: brain-
storm the next step in the
NeXt Generation Learning
plan.
The group included repre-
sentatives from many of the
foundations that have sup-


ported Sarasota County
schools and the referendum.
School officials thanked
some of their most fervent
supporters during the refer-
endum, including three foun-
dations Gulf Coast Com-
munity FoLndation ofVenice,
Community Foundation of
Sarasoa County, and the
William G. Selby and Marie
Selby Foundation. But they
were really there to listen to


their, ideas on how to imple-
ment the plan. And especially
about how to communicate
with the public about it.
Voters passed the supple-
mental education tax on
March 14 in part to pay for the
NeXt Gen plan. Penned by
Superintendent Gary Norris
and approved by the Sarasota
County School Board last
year, the plan focuses on
teacher training, high school
education, and technology in
the classroom.
Norris described it to the
audience as a way to help

Tax Day looms in Procrastination Nation


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER


Filing taxes is one of ihe
biggest inconveniences for
manyAmericans today. It's no
wonder so many people wait
until the last minute to pre-
pare them. However, waiting
until zero hour to file your
taxes could cause you to have
to, well, wait.
According to the IRS, as of


RF ONT SECTION


April 7 Americans have filed
300,000 fewer returns than
last year at the same time. So,
many people in ,the United
States are waiting even longer
to file this year.
The local IRS office is a last
resort for many taxpayers.
They are the people who can
help you make- sense of the
difficult-to-understand tax
laws. They have staff on hand
who can help you answer


questions and determine
which credits are available to
whom.
The closest IRS office to
Venice is located in Sarasota.
And with only two represen-
tatives who can answer tax
questions available on staff,
waiting can become a bit of
an issue.

War II returned to establish VFW No-Vel Post 159. They
named it after the first letter of each community: Nokomis-
Osprey Venice-Englewood-Laurel (No-Vel). Today, No-Vel
159 is one of the largest posts in the United States, with

THIS WEEK IN VENICE HISTORY


'Monkey man' takes

his lumps

From the Feb. 17,1975, Gondolier Sun


Thursday was just one of
those days when nothing
seemed to go right for Mike
Wayne Corradino, executive
director of the Florida Mon-
key Sanctuary east of Venice.
After everything else that
went wrong, Corradino en-
ded his day with a trip to
Venice Hospital after being
attacked by one of the simian
residents of the sanctuary.
The director of the unique
facility is better known as
Mike Wayne to readers of The
Gondolier, where he is em-
ployed as news editor.
Thursday began on a bad
note for Corradino when he


down in its bid for a $28,000
grant from the Selby Foun-
dation of Sarasota.
The grant money was
intended for expansion of the
facility, including additional
new cages to house the 150-
odd monkeys.
Next came a visit by the
state Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission, which st-
rictly regulates the operation
of the sanctuary and other
such facilities. The fish and
game people, Corradino said,
were not entirely happy with
the operation and ordered
that new and proper cages be
built within three weeks.

faced Capucin monkey
attacked Carradino as he was
feeding it. That particular
monkey, the director said,
was one of several simian
inmates considered danger-
ous and untrustworthy des-
pite all the "love and atten-
tion" lavished on him.
The seven-pound South
American monkey attached
himself to Corradino's leg and
refused to let go. "That mon-
key actually stalked me,"
Corradino said. "There was
no way I could get him off."
At that point, with the ani-
mal inflicting severe bites to
Corradino's legs and ankles,
he said he knew the monkey
was actually trying to kill him.

Cistern sense


Two words that don't
belong together here are
"water shortage."
There's no shortage of
water in Florida and never will
be.
When Tropical Bob was a
boy, a house next door
caught rainwater in a tank
called a cistern. Today, rain-
fall collecting systems are
required with new construc-
tion in Bermuda and the U.S.
Virgin Islands. Japan and
Germany offer incentives to
build cisterns. Florida
should, as well.
If you live in an average-
size house, a 1-inch rain
dumps 5,973 gallons of water
on your roof. You need 50
gallons a day.

trial if the number is a first-time
caller.
Wrong numbers
Walker, using the stolen
phone, was a first-time caller.
He won a free trial and was
issued an account number and
password.
Walker called his chatline
account on other occasions
using another phone.
Walker also called two other


phone numbers. One belong-
ed to Walker's girlfriend. She
told investigators she had no
knowledge about the burglar-
ies.
Venice connection
Hill said one thing puzzled
investigators: What was Walk-
er's connection to Venice?
"Our investigation showed
he was working for a lawn-care
service contracted to Country
Club Estates," Hill said.
Meanwhile, the owner ofthe


lawn-care service confirmed
that Walker worked for him at
the time of the burglary.
He also said the contact
number for Walker was the
number of the stolen phone.
He said Walker would work
Tuesday through Friday each
week, and would be waiting for
the crew at Country Club
Estates.
Hill said that fact was im-
portant because the standard
practice was for employees to
meet at the office and ride over


to the job.
"We think he was doing the
burglaries and then just meet-
ing the crew there rather than
going home," Hill said.
Hill said it was a tough case.
"We been investigating this
for year and the casewas cold,"
Hill said. "I decided to look
again, go over the entire case file,
see if I missed anything."
Hill said he has no reason
to believe that Walker is con-
nected to a recent string of
business burglaries in Venice.

TAX from Page 1A
Alaida Lares, an IRS employ-
ee, said. "This makes wait
times hard to predict. People
can wait anywhere from five
to 60 minutes. Depending
upon the issue, some people
can wait up to 90 minutes
before being seen."
Fortunately, what most
people need at the IRS office
can be accomplished quickly.
"If you need to make a pay-
ment, drop off your return or
pick up forms, you can usual-
lybe helped right away," Lares
added.
However, according to
Lares, a lot of people do have


questions.
"Probably the most fre-
quently asked questions is
from a person wondering if
he or she qualifies for a partic-
ular credit," she said.
Need more time?
As the deadline nears,
more people who want an
extension to file their tax
returns are going to the IRS
office. The extension is auto-
matic, but if people wait to file
their taxes without getting an
extension, the penalty may be
up to five months in prison.

development applications -
called bundling was the
policy until council members
told the planning department
to stop it in late 2004. Council
members felt they were being
rushed when rezoning and
site plan applications came
up for approval at the same
time, but now that they're
separated, council members
have complained they do not
know what type of develop-
ment will result from a rezon-
ing application.
Increasing density was the
most popular method to
encourage more affordable
housing. As of now, the city's
maximum density is 18 units
per acre. There is talk of creat-
ing "density bonuses" of 26 or
more units per acre, ifa devel-
opment would have apart-
ment rentals that cater to
blue-collar workers.
Simmonds was the lone
council member to ask if the
city shouldn't do more, like
build its own condominium
or apartment building dedi-
cated to city employees and
blue-collar workers.
The review of airport prop-
erty will include those ideas,
according to the city manag-
er. The city-owned mobile
home park and Holiday Con-
dominiums could .qualify as
workforce and affordable
housing.
But there is no talk of creat-
ing new workforce housing -
say, demolishing the vacant
lCircus Arena and building
,apartments on airport
'property, Black said.
Left off the list
Council members were
unhappy the city manager
only allowed three new items
on the strategic planning list.


Available money, staffing
and focus made it necessary,
Black said.
"You have to be rational in
your priorities," Black said.
"Otherwise, nothing would
ever get done. ... You'll just
run around chasing your
tails."
The top three new items -
density, expanded height re-
strictions and petition bund-
ling were selected by a
blind vote of council mem-
bers.
The items left off the list
will not be ignored, according
to the city manager. Staff will
work on them as time and
money permits.
Some of the priorities that
missed the cut:
Venice Housing Au-
thority Council talked of
pushing for a consolidation of
public housing entities in
which VHA would become
part of a Sarasota/Punta
Gorda/Venice housing au-
thority. They believe this
would increase bargaining
power for federal funding and
grants. The city manager said
he will continue to support
this concept, as time permits.
Boat/RV parking -
Some on council think the
city needs to review laws
allowing residents to park
RVs, boats and other recre-
ational equipment in their
front yard.
Architectural standards
- Council members over-
whelmingly told the .city
manager they want single-
family homes to have free-


dom in architectural design,
something the city manager
said he "had never heard"
from council before. Most of
the council members said the
Northern Italian Renaissance
appearance should only be
forced on commercial and
large-scale, multi-family de-
velopments. No staff work is
needed to enforce this direc-
tion. City staff had thought
council wanted these design
standards expanded.
Bottled water sales -
Though it didn't receive
enough council votes, the
idea of selling bottled water
from the city's drinking water
plant will probably happen.
Black said utilities staff i
pushing the idea already and
is close to a firm proposal on
distribution. The city began
bottling water earlier this yea
as a promotional gimmick
and for emergency purposes.
Expanding sewage, wat-
er lines Council talked of
expanding utility service to
residents outside of city limF
its, 'specifically the parts of
Nokomis, Osprey and North
Venice not being served by
Sarasota County water and
sewage lines. "If it's a revenue
generator, we should look a;t
it," council member Vicki
Taylor said. There were not
enough votes to request a
staff study to provide cost and
revenue estimates. i
Public Art Though it
received plenty of talk, the
idea of creating a Public Art
Board failed "to generate
enough votes. In 2005, the

request to create a volunteer

posed of art experts.
Venice Archives expan-
sion Another topic that
generated plenty of debate
but no action. Council mem-
bers considered commission-
ing a study to review expan-
sion of the city-owned and
operated historical archives,
as well as its methods of
accepting and determining
historic artifacts.
Downtown parking A
hot-button topic a year ago
failed to generate much dis-
cussion. City staff and council
both have decided to shelve
any talk of building a parking
garage or adding new parking
downtown.
Parks ownership -
Council members questioned
the policy of allowing new
developments to own and
maintain the green spaces
and parks they must build
under city requirements.
Some council members ques-
tioned if this wasn't simply
creating private parks that
stagnate interconnectivity
between developments. The
city manager said it's a cost-
saving measure, since the city
doesn't have to maintain
these neighborhood parks.
Following this explanation,
no council members asked
for a review of the policy.

PLAN froP


reform teaching practices by
emphasizing what he called
the "new three 'R's" in educa-
tion (rigor, relevance and rela-
tionships) and bringing com-
puter technology into the
forefront of Sarasota County
schools.
"By changing teaching
pedagogies with the new
(high-tech) way students are
learning, we're able to bring
more focus on instructional
strategies," Norris said. "It
allows us to move toward a
career focus for students ear-
lier (in their secondary educa-
tion experience)."
"The real shift is in high
school. Small Learning
Communities are breaking up
high schools into groups of
350 students. Mentoring is a
huge value in creating
stronger relationships with
students ... Instructional
strategies are changing.
Before we paid attention to
coverage; not to rigor. We're
trying to change this with the
new three 'R's."
Partner pressure
Norris acknowledged
schools are unable to reform
themselves. Echoing a senti-
ment that's been around for
decades in reform circles, he
asked for the help of school
partners in supporting high
school reforms.
"Substantial change in
education doesn't really hap-
pen from within," Norris said.
"We need your help to change
... to move away from a col-
lege-for-all (model) to college
readiness for all."
"You need to keep pressur-
ing us ... it's a very loose time
frame (for the NeXt Gen plan).
Change may take place in five
years or a seven- or eight-year
period. We need leadership
from the Education
Partnership ... giving us siz-
able pressure," Norris said,
referring to the three founda-
tions that make up the part-
nership.
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice,
,Community Foundation of
'Sarasota County,' and' the
William G. Selby and Marie
Selby Foundation joined
forces in 1998 for a three-year
project to fund a series of ini-
tiatives based on a
SchoolMatch critique of the
district. The alliance brought
in some of the country's best
early childhood education
experts to help encourage K-3
literacy throughout the dis-
trict, and supported career-
focused education.
They helped design a lead-
ership training program and
funded workshops and con-
ferences on professional
development. Happy with the
results, the Education
Partnership decided to
remain involved in Sarasota
County schools.
Debra Jacobs, president of
the Selby Foundation,
applauded Norris for the
direction he is leading the dis-
trict, and said stability is the
key to his plan's success.
"They have known they
couldn't do it themselves.
Let's give Gary Norris the eight
years (to implement NeXt
Generation Learning), and
have high expectations," she
said.
Long haul
Featured speaker Sophie
Sa, executive director of The
Panasonic Foundation, rein-
forced the need for stability in
the district if substantive
change is to take place.
The Panasonic Foundation
helps turn around poor,
urban school districts suffer-
ing from "white flight." The
foundation served as a model
for the Education Partnership
in its formative years.
She told the audience the
average length of tenure for a
superintendent in urban
areas is 2.3 years not
enough time to effect change.
"You need to support your
superintendent," Sa said.
"even during the times when


you think he's not doing a
good job. (The bottom line is)
you can't do anything with
changing leadership. Your
support is absolutely neces-
sary."
She gave advice for well-
intentioned foundations and
other partners: Focus on kids


or stay out of the way.
"Unless adult issues are
resolved or at least set aside,
you cannot focus on kids,"
she said. "If you want to
change your education sys-
tem, put kids first.
'And you'd better be in it
for the long haul. Schools are
far more complicated than
any business. If it (improving
student achievement) was
easy, it would have already
been done."

TAXI f. m P ag,';A
amount of taxes you estimate
to be due, you'll owe interest
and penalties.
If you can't pay, you can go
to the IRS office to work out a
payment plan. Many people
need to have their wages gar-
nished or make payments to
the IRS to pay their taxes. The
only way to do this is to work
out an arrangement with the
IRS before the April 17, dead-


line. (The deadline was
extended to April 17 because
the normal tax day, April 15,
falls on a nonbusiness day
this year.)
"These are the issues that
take the most time to
resolve," Lares said.
Unfortunately, a person
posing any of these questions
will have to take a number
and wait in line.
The IRS office is probably
the best place people can go if


they have tax questions and
cannot afford an accountant
or lawyer. But what many
people do not know is that
many of the services the IRS
office provides are available
on the IRS Web site.
The IRSWeb site offers free
tax preparation for people
who make less than $50,000
annually. The IRS and the IRS
Web site are the only places
that have all the forms need-
ed to file many different types


of tax returns. While public
libraries do carry many of the
most frequently used forms,
they do not have them all.
The Sarasota IRS office even
has a Spanish-speaking rep-
resentative on staff.
The Sarasota IRS office is
located at 5971 Cattle Ridge
Blvd. Their phone number is
378-6448. It will be open on
Monday, April 17, from 8:30
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It will not be
open on the weekend.

Swiftmud board needs to be realigned


I t is time for the Legislature to reconsider
how counties are represented on
regional water boards.
As growth threatens to strangle our water
supplies, local governments are becoming
increasingly vigilant regarding their own
water resources, and the temptation to say
"Hands off" grows each day.
That scenario is being played out today as
the Southwest Florida Water Management
District, better known as Swiftmud, and the
Peace River Manasota Regional Water
Authority struggle to appease members that
are concerned about future water supplies.
It was just a week or so ago that Charlotte
County commissioners, in a face-to-face
public meeting, told representatives of the
water authority that they lacked confidence
in plans to avoid future shortages. Yet, the
authority must rely on Swiftmud to fund


water projects.
That gives Swiftmud a hammer to hold
over any local government or developer who
needs water. It is a powerful tool and one that
must be used with discretion, compassion
and vision.
Right now, the city of Punta Gorda is
caught between Swiftmud and the water
authority over expansion of its water plant.
The city wants to increase its potential to
supply water, but Charlotte County wants an
emergency interconnect something that
has been on the table for years and some-
thing that was rated a priority for sales tax
use.
The authority wants the city to intercon-
nect with its pipeline to the King's Highway
water plant and Charlotte County refuses to
approve that project until the city agrees to
the emergency interconnect.


It's a chess game over water supplies, and
Swiftmud holds the keys since it must pro-
vide money needed for the city to expand the
capacity of its water plant.
To make matters even more troubling,
there is not one person on Swiftmud's 11-
member governing board of directors from
Charlotte, Sarasota or DeSoto counties.
State statutes outline where Swiftmud
board members should reside, calling for two
members each from Hillsborough and
Pinellas counties and another member from
either of the two; one from Manatee County;
one from Polk County; one from Pasco
County; one at-large from an area that
includes Levy, Marion, Citrus, Sumter,
Hernando and Lake counties; another at-
large member from Sarasota, Hardee,
DeSoto, Charlotte and Highlands counties;
and a final at-large member from those last


11 counties.
This formula for selecting Swiftmud board
members was first drawn up in the early
1970s. Since then, Charlotte, Sarasota and
DeSoto counties have grown significantly
and their growth potential overshadows that
of bigger counties that are nearly built-out.
Still, in fairness, other counties such as Pasco,
Citrus and Polk are also experiencing rapid
growth.
We believe each county should have more
of a voice on decisions made by Swiftmud. If
that means expanding the board of directors,
so be it.
It is imperative that Charlotte, DeSoto and
Sarasota counties, among others, have a say
on decisions that not only affect where we
get our water but how much we pay for it. We
call on state lawmakers to make this happen,
soon.


Are we healthy enough?


BOB VEDDER
il IN I


That is the question that
the Community Health Im-
provement Partnership is
trying to answer.
Each year it works on pro-
,xjects to improve the health of
"Sarasota County. This is pri-
marily a volunteer effort
through Community Health
Action Teams working with
the Sarasota County Health
Department to develop pro-
grams to try to improve the
health of our citizens.
At its annual meeting at
the Venice Golf & River Club a
little more than a week ago it
produced its health score-
card. It keeps track of 30 cate-
gories, most of them disease-
or sickness-related, although
some tie to lifestyle and safe-
ty.
Of the 30 items, about half
show that our population is
healthier than last year. Here
are' a few of the important
ones.
Lung cancer affects 73
people out of 100,000. That is
down from before. However,
adults who smoke still repre-
sent almost 20 percent of the
population.
The good news is that child
smoking is down, now only
11.4 percent of our youth. The
target is to have lung cancer
down to 65 people in 100,000
by the year 2010.
Breast cancer strikes 127
out of 100,000, also trending
down toward a target of 110.
Heart disease, the biggest
problem of all, is at 151, also
going down, toward a target
of 120.
As you can see, all of these
major diseases are on the
decline in our area, a testa-
ment to the wonderful health
care professionals and hospi-
tals we have in our area; good
medicine; and lots more peo-
ple doing a better job of get-
ting more-frequent checkups.
A couple of important
areas, like the incidence of
diabetes and high blood pres-
sure, have been stable but are
not trending down as we
would want.
Other things being mea-
sured are not trending the
right way. Maybe the most
disturbing is domestic vio-
lence, where there is a stag-
gering rate of 533 cases per
100,000 population. The tar-
get looks very ambitious in
comparison, as we would
hope to be at 321 by 2010.
This is surprising in such a
good economy with full


employment. The same is
true with the rise in the num-
ber of families below the
poverty level, now at 10 per-
cent.
The featured speaker at the
meeting, Tyler Norris, presi-
dent of Community Initia-
tives, talked about what he
saw as our country's biggest
challenge obesity. He
showed all of the statistics of
disease as I have outlined
above, but he also showed the
causes behind the causes.
At the top of that list is
smoking, but right behind
smoking are poor diet and
physical inactivity. Norris
thinks the trend in obesity is
going to cause the increase in
our life expectancy to stop
unless we become healthier.
He showed how our adult
population 15 years ago had 5
to 15 percent obese people,
depending on which state
you lived in; now it is more
like 15 to 30 percent, with
most states' population be-
tween 20 to 25 percent obese.
In our area the adult obesi-
ty level is 17 percent, a little
better than the state average.
Remember, this is those very
overweight; a more telling stat
is that 64 percent of all adults
are overweight.
He was very concerned
about the inactivity of youth.
We see it in less athletic par-
ticipation, less physical exer-
cise at school, and less exer-
cise at home because kids
watch TV or play videogames.
One in seven kids, according
to his stats, is overweight.
The scary thing is that chil-
dren born since 2000 have a
high chance of diabetes 33
percent in males and 39 per-
cent in females.
Of course, all of these stats
were taken before I lost
weight, which might skew
them down a little.


By's Crack: There are
various ways to file your
income tax. There's the
long form: the 1040. There's
also the short form: the
1040EZ. And then there is
the one I always use, the
1040 9-1-1.

Community theaters are volunteer venues


Editor:
Venice Little Theatre is happy to respond to Ron
Orlikowski's letter concerning compensation for performers.
Venice Little Theatre is and has always been a community
theater, one of more than 7,000 in the United States.
Community theater is, by definition, a volunteer performance
venue.
The theater is owned by its volunteer membership and gov-
erned by a volunteer board. A professional staff is hired to
supervise operations costing $1.7 million annually. The per-
formers and theatrical crew do not, as a rule, expect or
receive pay. They volunteer for the enjoyment of doing so.
Some learn and hone their craft for a later professional
career. Often, families volunteer together because of the posi-
tive social aspects.
As a result, the community enjoys quality entertainment at
a price much lower than at union theater: around $20 per tick-
et, as opposed to $40, $60 or even $100.
And the performers' compensation Mr. Orlikowski "calls us
out" on doesn't address the dozens of carpenters, stitchers,
crew members, ushers, box office workers, marketing volun-
teers and others who help produce more than 400 perfor-
mances per year.
Nor does it include other production costs, including royal-
ties, costumes, scenery, props and sound.
Nor does it include $100,000 in annual facility maintenance
costs, more than $50,000 in utilities, $100,000 in insurance and
the myriad costs associated with a full-time operation.
Last year atVLT, 720 volunteers donated more than 100,000
hours because they were glad to do it. This community should
be commended for creating, maintaining, growing and being
this valuable asset for the past 56 years.

Safety means borders
must be secured
Editor:
When the terrorists de-
stroyed the World Trade Cen-
ter on Sept. 11, many Mex-
ican .immigrants who were
working in those buildings
were killed. The Sept. 11
hijackers entered our country
through our airports.
Thankfully, Homeland Se-
curity has closed that door to
terrorists by various means of
increased security. Unfor-
tunately, however, at present


there is no security in place at
our Mexican and Canadian
borders, since no one knows
anything about the large
numbers of people entering
our country by those borders.
It is therefore logical to
conclude that potential ter-
rorists would view those bor-
ders as wide-open doors.
Since terrorist attacks do not
discriminate between Amer-
ican citizens and immigrants,
legal or illegal, we all sacrifice
some safety and are more in
danger of becoming victims


of a terrorist bomb -
borders remain unse

when immigrants
overrun America?
Editor:
I came to this country 45
years ago from England. I had
to bring a chest X-ray, be fin-
gerprinted, etc., and have
enough money to live on for a
period of time. I became a cit-
izen six years later.
I guess that's why I'm
opposed to the illegal immi-
grants. With more than 11
million here, I wonder what
will happen if and when a
recession occurs. Will we be
like France, Germany, Britain
and likes, overrun by so many
migrants and not enough
jobs to go around, while the
immigrants make their de-
mands and seem to be getting
their way?

'History will judge
Bush for Iraq war
Editor:
Letter writer Mark Hines'
inflammatory rant of April 5
calling George Bush a "war
criminal" and praising Roose-
velt's and Truman's decisive
victory in World War II while
deriding Bush's Iraq policy
requires a nonpartisan res-
ponse.
It should be recalled that in
the Oct. 11, 2002, vote in the
Senate, 29 Democrats must
be included in a criminal
indictment along with the
president if Hines' charge has
merit.


With respect to the leader-
ship of Roosevelt and Truman
in World War II, victory came
at an awful expense to our
conscripted military. History
states that 450,000 soldiers
died; Truman's. dropping of
atomic bombs on the Jap-
anese cities, of Nagasaki and
Hiroshima resulted in the
death of 220,000, if radiation
death is included. As of this
writing, approximately ;2,300
of our finest volunteer sol-
diers in Iraq have been killed.
Roosevelt's and Truman's
war decisions are evaluated
by historians in the context of
the history of Europe and the
Far East. Bush's Iraq policy
will be judged by future stu-
dents of history depending
upon democratic advance-
ments in the Middle East.

LET 'EM HAVE IT!




I've got your code violations


Should be condemned. I would like to know why a building
on city property has not been condemned. The building is at
Wellfield Park, owned by the city and maintained by the coun-
ty. This building was brought in by the Pop Warner league,
Venice Vikings program, to be repaired by the Venice Vikings
cheerleading program. This building has been on site for about
three years and no repairs are made. It is now being used by the
semi-pro VeniceVikings as a visitor's locker room. The entrance
door is falling off the hinges, the ceiling is falling down, there
are numerous electrical cables hanging on the building. It is a
great place for the homeless to stay. Does the city exempt itself
from code violations? I think this should be checked out by
Venice code enforcement for numerous violations.


Keep it moving. Yesterday
evening I spent about two
hours in traffic on U.S. 41
because of another wreck on
1-75. I just don't understand
why the sheriff's department
can't clear the lanes on 1-75
after an accident and keep
traffic moving. It's just ridicu-
lous.
Do your job. St. Patrick's
Day, between Sarasota and
North Port, was one big freak-
ing nightmare in traffic. Why
was it such a nightmare? Why,
was 41 stop-and-go traffic?
Why was 1-75 in the same
condition? Because our high-
way patrol and sheriff's de-
partment personnel were not
doing their job. If they were,
the traffic would have been
moving up on 1-75. The acci-
dent was down off the road.
The 18-wheeler was on the
side of the road. You only
needed one highway patrol-
man there to do the job. It
should have been off to the
side of the road and the emer-
gency vehicles should have
been in that right-hand lane.
They've got that whole right-
hand lane to use.
Let the traffic go in the two
left-hand lanes. They're going
to move into two lanes a mile
down the road anyhow. But
no, they just held the damn
traffic up. And nobody was
:,telling, the people what was
going on and nothing on the
radio.
Get a big electric sign,on
top of a truck going up and
down the highway explaining
what's going on. There's any

why he proposed impeaching
the president, he wanted "to
take away the excuse that we
didn't know."
There are many instances
in the past that we look back
at and say how were they
allowed to happen? Joseph
McCarthy and the lynchings
of African Americans are just
two instances. But what this
reminds me of most power-
fully is the Holocaust. Public
denial of it is now a crime in
many European countries.
Will our lack of action to
stop Bush and Cheney from
subverting the Constitution of
this country be deemed a
crime in the future? And will
we be found guilty? Will we
have worried so much about
upsetting people or creating a
rally of the far right that we
did nothing?
I would rather do what we

Sunday clinics. It is abso-
lutely unbelievable that with
all the clinics in this town and
Nokomis that not one is open
on a Sunday. Not one. Can't
they at least have one open,
take turns? What good is a
clinic if it isn't open on Sun-
day?
The best. I love my Sunday
Gondolier Sun. Why? Virginia
Deupree, that's why. What a
wit this lady. Her article today,
Just thinking was one of the
very best. Keep them coming,
Virginia, and God bless.
Movie prices. I think it's
great that we have a new
movie theater, but when we
get there we got a nasty little
lady that just acts like she
doesn't want to be there, and
I've got a 13-year-old daugh-
ter, she doesn't wear makeup,
she's plain Jane, looks like a
13- or 14-year-old, and she
tells me she's got to have a stu-
dent ID to get the student
price.
She charged me the adult
price because my daughter
doesn't have a school ID. She
doesn't go to a regular school,
so they don't give out IDs. I
think something should be
mentioned about that.
My husband went to the
manager and he said there's a
difference between student
price, child price and adult
price. We ended up paying


$8.75 for her ticket. They
charge more than anywhere
around. We used to always go
to Sarasota Square and I
would rather go back there if
it's going to be like that.
Scrub jays. I don't get it.
The Florida scrub jay is
threatened/endangered, the
county is purchasing environ-
mentally sensitive land, i.e.
the Lemon Bay Preserve in
South Venice for the scrub
jays. Why are they auctioning
the scrub jay lots in North
Port? Why not keep them?
While on the subject of
scrub jays, what's going on
with the unpermitted, clan-
destine clearing of land adja-
cent to Shamrock Park? What
effect does that have on the
scrub jays at the park? And is
the county yielding to the
landowner by allowing un-
permitted clearance?
False alarm. Paranoia? Thy
name is Venice. Two men
dropped off supplies in their
trucks at the Venice hospital
and then they stopped off
downtown, leaving the trucks
to get some breakfast. Some-
one, who apparently watches
Fox news too much, decides
that these men might look
like Middle Easterners they
actually were Hispanic and
they might blow up city hall.
The VPD descends on the
scene. Half the anti-terrorist
groups in the county are alert-
ed.
When the young men
return to pick up their towels
and swim suits to go for a
swim, they're stopped by
police and they politely ex-
plain themselves and the
cause is diffused. What are we
to learn? Venice is not the
Middle East, but there are
those among us who are
frightened to see anything out
of the ordinary. I feel sorry for
them.

The alliance is compiling a
list of local volunteers from
each organization, and inc-
luding their availability and
their skills.
"Screening volunteers in

people with the skills we need

These people are being

After Hurricane Charley,
Sarasota County was over-

to volunteer in Charlotte and

was no way to coordinate the
effort on the fly.
"We were hamstrung in

Many people come for-

the county'has identified four

Girls tennis team rolls into district tourney


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Salomone


stands


tall

Venice High senior utility
player Joe Salomone has
been enjoying an excellent
senior season.
He plays a number of
positions well catcher,
first base and outfield to
name a few. Plus, he possess-
es a reliable left-handed bat
in the lineup. His .370 bat-
ting average will attest to
that.
Baseball means every-
thing to Salomone, but his
world was rocked a week and
a half ago when his biggest
fan, father Bill, suffered a
massive heart attack.
Bill was at every game,
home and away. He kept a
scorebook and monitored his
son's every at bat.
A worse case scenario
unfolded Wednesday. Bill
passed away. Somehow, Joe
fought back the tears and
played Wednesday and
Thursday for his Indian
team.
Salomone had a great
Sarasota Classic. He had six
hits and four RBIs over the
four garmits and was named to
the All-Tournament team.
"I know it had to be tough
for him," Indian coach Craig
Faulkner said. "He was the
MVP for the team in the tour-
nament. He had big hits. He
was focused. I have a lot of
respect for what that young
man did."

This enlightening story
was passed along to me by
Patti Clipse, a Good Sama-
ritan in her own right.
Seems the keeper of the
cash box from the Venice
High softball concessions
had it fall from his vehicle on
the way back from purchas-
ing supplies for that night's
game.
He made a few phone
calls and back-traced his
route. The cash box was not
on U.S. 41, the south Venice
street or in any ditches.
Others helped with the
search. Some even walked
the route.
They ran into a neighbor-
hood mom named Linda.
She was friendly and told me
how her son was lucky to
have someone find his wallet
with $200. She said she
would talk to her boys that
frequently skateboard out-
side her home, to see if they
found or saw anything.
After working in the stand,
and closing down after
Friday night's game, the VHS
concession folks were excit-
edly surprised after learning
someone had called and
found the cash box.
Larry, a Venice dad and
local plumber, had called to
tell them his 11 year-old son
and three friends recovered
the cash bag.
On Saturday morning,
Venice Middle school student
Michael Pirro, 12; Collin Pier-
son, 11, a former resident
from Maryland; Laurel Noko-
mis student Austin Matthews,
12, and another Venice Middle
School student, Collin Knight,
13, delivered the box.
While skateboarding Fri-
day afternoon, they retrieved
the box on the street corner
where it fell from the car.
Clearly, these kids knew to
"do the right thing."


The Venice High girls ten-
nis team won its final three
matches of the regular season
last week to finish with an
impressive record of 13-2.
Barb Ginn's Lady Indians
now chug into the district
tournament, which will be
played Monday and Tuesday
at the 75th Street Courts in
Bradenton.
Action begins at 8 a.m.
each day. There will be two
rounds of singles and one

Knott and Pavkovich


stuck as reserves


BY RAY SINIBALDI
CORRESPONDENT

This marks the first edition
of the 2006 Venice Baseball
Watch.
We will give weekly
updates of the former Venice
Indians playing pro baseball.
At this moment there are
two, Jon Knott who is play-
ing for the Portland Beavers
and Adam Pavkovich who is
playing for the Salt Lake City
Bees.
Both of these teams play in
the Pacific Coast League
which is a AAA league. The
Beavers are the AAA affiliate
of the San Diego Padres and
the Bees are the AAA affiliate
of the Anaheim Angels. That
means that Jon and Adam are
scheduled to face off against
each other 15 times through-
out the summer. The first four
times will come this weekend
as Portland is visiting Salt
Lake City.
As the first week has come
to an end, it appears as if both
Venice alums are in similar
situations. Knott is in his third
year with the Beavers, and
this past winter was dropped
from the Padres' 40-man ros-
ter.


Despite the fact that he has
led the Beavers in home runs
and RBIs the past two sea-
sons, and was called up
briefly in the summer of 2004,
others have passed by him in
the call to San Diego. He con-
tinues to battle but must now
face the challenge of not play-
ing every day. The first week
had him not in the line up for
three games and being called
upon to pinch hit in two of
them.
In the four games in which
he has started, he has a 2-for-
5 effort in which he had two
doubles and five RBIs and a 1-
for-3 effort which included
his first home run-of the sea-
son. His three hits in 20 at
bats thus far have accounted
for 6 RBI, second on the team.
Pavkovich finds himself
stuck in a logjam in Baseball
America's fourth-ranked farm
system in all of baseball.
Primarily a shortstop and
third baseman, "Pak" finds
himself behind Dallas Mc-
Pherson at third base and the
highly touted Erik Aybar at
shortstop.
McPherson has been
called the Angels future at
third base and in fact started
the year there last year before


injuries and a slow start side-
lined him. Aybar himself has
fallen behind Brandon Wood
as the Angels "shortstop of the
future." The result has been
limited playing time for
Pavkovich, who for the first
time ever, saw a stint at first
base this week. In only six at
bats, he has a hit and an RBI.
Perhaps before this sum-
mer is out, trades will place
them in organizations which
will enhance their chances of
reaching the big leagues.
Arnold Hughey, who en-
joyed a very successful rook-
ie campaign in Eugene, Ore.
last season, has retired from
baseball.The lefty went 5-1
last year for the Emeralds
and had a 3.09 ERA. He will
return to Auburn to obtain
his degree and join his dad
at Hughey Construction.
Former Venice Indian Jack
Voigt joins the New York Mets
as the hitting instructor for
their Brooklyn Cyclones in
the New York Penn League.
This is their short season
league where Jack will be
working with many of the
players whom the Mets will
acquire in the upcoming June
draft. It is his eighth year as a
coach.


Rose, Korszen winners

at Ram Invitational


STAFF REPORT

The Venice High girls track
and field team will have to get
its act together in a hurry.
The district meet is this
coming Friday.
The Lady Indians are com-
ing off a disappointing
eighth-place finish in Thurs-
day night's Ram Invitational.
"We didn't have all of our
people, some people were
still weak after coming back
from the flu," coach Brenda
Clark said. "It had been three
weeks since our last meet. We
need to get together and
focus on what we have to do
this Friday"
The district meet will be
held at Riverview. Besides the
hosts and Venice, other
schools include Sarasota, Ma-
riner, Cape Coral and North
Fort Myers.


The top four in each event
in district qualify for regions.
Individually, Chelsea Rose
rose above the best at the
Ram Invitational with a first-
place finish in the 100 high
hurdles. Her winning time
was 17.16 seconds. It was the
first hurdles victory for Rose,
known for for her distance
running.
Rose, with her hip ailing,
was off form in the 1600 with
a flat fifth-place showing.
The Korszen sisters took
thirds. Senior Stephanie ran
the 3200 in a personal best
13:05. Younger sis Emily went
7-6 in the pole vault.
Venice's heralded 4 by 800
team finished way back in
fourth.
The Lady Indians were
minus Tony Cristiani and Sam
Seeley and hence very quiet in
the shot put and discus.

Today's celebration of
Easter is deeply rooted in
Pagan rituals stemming from
the celebration of the vernal
equinox.
Many native tribes of
Europe were pagan and their
members worshipped a vari-
ety of different gods and god-
desses before they were con-
verted by Christian mission-
aries. For centuries, these
peoples had their own holi-
days and celebrations, which
largely focused on the phases
of the moon and sun. The fes-
tivals are called Esbats and
Sabbats. Esbats and Sabbats
observe the equinoxes and
solstices. The Esbat acknowl-
edging the vernal equinox is
where the Easter Bunny was
first celebrated or honored for
its association with the god-
dess Eostre, who ultimately
provided the name of the
spring holiday known' as
Easter.
The Esbat at the vernal
equinox, which marks the
beginning of spring, is called
Eostre in honor of the Anglo-
Saxon goddess of the same
name. The goddess Eostre, or
Ostara to many of the
Germanic tribes during that
time, is primarily known as a
fertility goddess. Eostre is also
known as a goddess of the
dawn. Note the similarity in
her name Eostre to the word
"east," where the sun always
begins its day. Since Eostre-
has such close affiliations
with spring and the dawn, she
is also linked with rebirth and
renewal.
Eostre was widely celebrat-
ed and adored by her follow-
ers. She had many symbols
that were associated with her:
the rabbit, or hare; the egg
and the full moon. To follow-
ers of Eostre, these symbols
represented fertility or re-
birth. It is within these sym-
bols that many present-day
Easter traditions began.
Eostre's beloved rabbit is
commonly known for its
reproductive prowess, hence
its links to fertility. It is be-
lieved the Easter Bunny itself
originated in the 1500s in
Germany, where the citizens
revered Ostara rather than
Eostre. Oschter Haws (Ger-
man for Easter Bunny) was
known for bringing eggs to
children in celebration of the
vernal equinox. In present
day Easter celebrations, chil-
dren visit the Easter Bunny
and ask for gifts or enjoy such
activities as egg hunts. Several
egg hunts are annually con-
ducted in the Venice area, pri-
marily for younger children
who search for bunnies and
eggs to fill their Easter bas-
kets. Rabbits made of choco-
late, marshmallow and deco-
rated eggs are traditionally
given to children in baskets.
Eostre's other symbol, the
egg, is a symbol of rebirth.
Eggs were commonly ex-
changed as a symbol of the
return of the sun. Throughout
the ages, to be given the gift of
an egg was usually indicative
of something positive. Lovers
used to share eggs with one
another, and over time, they
would decorate the eggs prior
to giving them. Roman Cath-
olic nuns used to decorate
eggs, have them blessed by a
priest and give them to the
poor for food. The ancient
Romans and Egyptians would
exchange eggs in recognition
of the afterlife. During the era
of the Russian tsars, the jewel-
ry firm of Carl Faberge pro-
duced one-of-a-kind enam-
eled decorative eggs, which
today have become almost
priceless collectibles. Using a

wax resist technique, Ukrain-
ian women have long created
decorated eggs with finely
detailed patterns.
But for children, the hunt
is the thing, whether the eggs
are pink, blue or lavender.
The more they find, the bet-
ter.
Another symbol of Eostre
is the full moon.
In many cultures, the full
moon represents a pregnant
woman at the height of her
pregnancy, another connec-
tion between Eostre and fertili-
ty. The full moon is used today
to determine the precise date
of the Easter holiday. For
Western Christians, Easter
Sunday is always held between
March 22 and April 25, as it
must fall on the first Sunday
following the full moon after
the vernal equinox.
When Christian missionar-
ies sent by the Vatican came
to settle in Germany and the
British Ilses, they found that
the people there were quite
happy with their own tradi-
tions and holiday celebra-
tions. In order to help make


the transition from their own
religions to Christianity, Pope
Gregory ordered that the
pagan rituals could still be
observed as long as it was in
recognition of Christ. It was at
this time that people linked
Christ's own rebirth with the
rebirth festivals of Eostre,
making the transition from
paganism to Christianity eas-
ier. Many of the traditions and
celebrations, such as rabbits
and eggs, were blended with
the Christian traditions. As
Christianity spread, so did the
traditions of Eostre and
Easter. This was done with
other holidays as well, includ-
ing Christmas.
Today. Easter bunnies and
eggs adorn greeting cards and
chocolate candies. Christian
churches have annual Easter
egg hunts and visits from the
Easter Bunny are welcomed.
These pagan symbols, which
have nothing to do with the
rebirth of Christ and every-
thing to do with pagan
deities, continue to be cele-
brated and revered today, but
in new ways.

The essentials of life


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
IT


"There are never enough,"
my daughter-in-law, Betsy,
said when she and my son
were visiting. Enough what? I
asked, curious.
Shoes of course, Betsy
answered. Upon reflection,
she continued: "There are
four essential in life: food,
sleep, spiritual guidance and
shoes." She likened the need
for plenty of shoes being
equal to my sons' fondness
for golf. Both are self-indul-
gences and luxuries, but a lot
of fun.
"I see," I said, although I
really didn't. At this point, I
was kind of trying to hide my
feet and the orthopedic and
politically correct "old" ladies
white shoes that I had worn
every day for almost two
years.
"Do you wear those idiotic
high heels," I asked. "Not any-
more," she answered. I
queried my friends Nancy
and Fran while listening to
"Dancing With the Stars"
recently and wondered how
those gals could do those
complicated dance steps in
the stiletto heels. Fran, always
beautifully and fashionably
dressed, tells me whenever
she pushed her baby carriage
in her native Brooklyn she'
always wore high heels. I


dunno! Not me.
Remember the shoes we
women wore when we were
younger, such high fashion.
"Ouch," Betsy said, "some-
times those pointed toes real-
ly hurt." She reminds me that
the pointed toes are back in
style. No way am I going back
to those, she said. Let the
younger kids learn the lesson
we already know. Betsy said
when she graduated from col-
lege her dad sat her down and
told her "I want to tell you
something important as you
go to your first job." Well, she
thought her dad was going to
tell her "be good to your
neighbor" or "make sure you
give back to the community
and those less fortunate." Not
so. His sage advice was:
No. 1 Buy a comfortable
mattress. You need to have a
good night's sleep to handle
your job.
No. 2 Save money from
day one, from every pay-
check. It will be the founda-
tion for your future.
No. 3 Buy comfortable
shoes. You will be on your feet
often and your feet need to-be
comfortable for you to be at
ease during the interactions
with others.
Betsy bought a very good
mattress, saved money, but
she had to learn about
"shoes" the hard way. She saw
a beautiful pair of brown high
heeled shoes "she loved ... and
they were completely uncom-
fortable a valuable lesson
learned the hard way," she
said.
I was listening to a novel
about the African country of
Botswana the other day and
the main character tells about
wearing red leather shoes
lined with 'blue leaffher."'o'
you suppose the fascination


with footwear has been
around forever? The Indians
who wore those beautiful
handmade moccasins deco-
rated them with beads. I won-
der if they had multiple pairs,
or just changed the beads?
Did they have fallen arches, or
are the pointed toe style hard-
er on the feet than those moc-
casins? I dunno!

Virginia Deupree is 92,
and almost totally blind. She
is a graduate of Indiana
University, noted for its
School ofJournalism.
Virginia was a city editor and
a columnist for many years,
and now resides in Venice.

E-Medicine easy way to get better, faster patient care


BY MELISSA ROSS
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER

In an age when some use
the Internet for everything
from ordering groceries to
getting the day's headlines,
the old-fashioned visit to the
doctor is slowly being supple-
mented by a higher-tech
option.
It's called e-Medicine, and
it's catching on across the
Sunshine State, as patients
with routine medical ques-
tions or prescription needs
discard time-consuming of-
fice visits for a simple click of
the keyboard and swipe of the
mouse.
Whether it's scheduling an
appointment, requesting or
receiving lab and test results,
refilling a prescription, or
even having a conversation
with your doctor about your
diagnosis, e-Medicine is the
wave of the future, say both
physicians and patients who
like its convenience.
Patients like Jason Fromi,
whose job requires constant
travel. "I'm on the road a lot
and refilling my prescriptions
over the phone is hard to do
using my cell phone. Or, I
have to call my doctor and the
pharmacy to make sure they
have my prescription. With e-
Medicine, I can request a refill
and send it to my pharmacy
with just a few clicks."
Not surprisingly, over-
scheduled physicians, often
drowning in paperwork, also
like the option of doctoring

HEARING


some of their patients online.
The benefits? Increased pro-
ductivity, faster refills for pre-
scription requests and lab
results, and higher patient
satisfaction.
"This is a tool that saves so
much time," says Dr. Robert
Mirsky, a fam-
Oa ily physician
and senior
medical di-
rector for Blue
Cross and
Blue Shield of
"- Florida, which
I. recently be-
gan offering
Dr. Mirsky the online op-
tion state-
wide. "For all of those end-of-
day, after-hours and weekend
calls from patients, you can get
more information from this
technology than from an an-
swering service or a phone call
from a patient. It's a great way
to extract a lot of information
while easily retaining a paper
trail or e-trail, so to speak."
In addition to ordering re-
fills and the like, the range of
benefits includes what's call-
ed a "webVisit" a clinically
structured online process for
nonurgent care. For these vir-
tual office visits, patients pay
the same out-of-pocket
amounts that they would pay
for a face-to-face office ap-
pointment under their cur-
rent benefit plans but
enjoy the convenience of
securely accessing care from
their own doctor online.
For example, "The patient

provides a whole bunch of
upfront information that is
driven by appropriate ques-
tions. The physician reviews
that and any other medical
records he or she may have to
craft a response, or a request
for the patient to come in.
Then that encounter is done,
just like an office visit. There's
no concern about privacy is-
sues as relates to patients' rec-
ords," says Mirsky.
What if, in the course of the
"webVisit," the doctor deter-
mines the patient needs care
beyond the routine? "We
need to stress that this service
is a great tool," says Mirsky. "It
can accomplish so much
quickly for both doctor and
patient. eSometimes, though,
it can lead to the recommen-
dation that a patient come in
for an office visit for a more
detailed interaction."
And although e-Medicine
requires basic online savvy,
you don't need to be a com-
puter whiz to take advantage
of it or a fancy video com-
ponent on your PC to actually
"see" your doctor.
"This is not telemedicine. It
has the ability to attach infor-
mative text brochures, but
there is no video component. It
doesn't require a whole lot of
advanced technical resources
on the part of the patient or the
physician," said Mirsky.
To find out more about e-
Medicine, ask your doctor if
he or she is a participant in
the program or visit relay-
health.com.

Protect your baby and toddler


get them immunized


STAFF REPORT

Keeping young children
safe and healthy includes tak-
ing them to their health care
provider for childhood im-
munizations. National Infant
Immunization Week, April 22-
29 has been set aside to
remind parents that 13 seri-
ous diseases may be prevent-
ed by getting infants and tod-
dlers two years and younger
vaccinated on time. Parents
- talk with your child's health
care provider or call the
health department about the
childhood vaccines that your
baby or toddler may need.
Before age 2, every child
should be immunized against
13 potentially serious vac-
cine-preventable diseases:
measles, mumps, rubella,
diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis
(whooping cough),, polio,


Haemophilus influenzae type
b (Hib disease), Hepatitis A,
Hepatitis B, varicella (chick-
enpox), pneumococcal dis-
ease and respiratory flu or
influenza.
At least one shot is needed
for each of these diseases, and
for a few diseases, several"
doses are needed for the best
protection,
Parents may ask, "Why
does my baby need so many
shots?" Sarasota County
Health Department acting
medical director Dr. Zenobia
Brown says, "many of today's
parents have never even seen
the diseases that vaccines
prevent. The vaccines that
doctors recommend are
given at an early age because
the diseases they prevent are
far more serious or common
among babies or young chil-
dren.


"For children who are not
immune, these diseases can
still lead to pneumonia, chok-
ing, brain damage, heart
problems, liver cancer and
blindness. Vaccines given on
schedule provide children the
earliest and best protection
against disease."
The Sarasota County
Health Department offers
free immunizations to infants
and children from families
who lack adequate health
insurance through the Vac-
cines for Children (VFC) pro-
gram. No appointment is
needed. A parent or guardian
must be present, and must
bring prior immunization
records.
Free vaccines for VFC-eli-
gible children are offered as

Q. My husband lost all
hearing in his right ear
when he was a boy. We
know a hearing aid won't
help that ear. We enjoy
traveling in our motor
home, but my husband is
unable to carry on a
conversation while driving.
Is there anything that
would help us?
A. Your husband should look
into trying a CROS system.
CROS stands for Contra
Lateral Routing of Signal
and allows the wearer to hear
sounds directed toward his
unaidable ear. The latest
innovation in CROS systems
involves a wireless
microphone and receiver. A
microphone is placed above
the unaidable ear and "picks
up" sounds there before
"transmitting" them to the
hearing ear. This system will
allow your husband to hear
those persons sitting on his
"bad" side without him
having to turn his "good" ear
toward the speaker. This
system also improves the
user's ability to understand
speech in noise with less
stress and fatigue. Any
person who has one ear
which hears better than the
other ear should consider a
CROS hearing system before
buying a conventional
hearing aid. The Audio-
logists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance
Centers will be happy to
demonstrate this system to
you and answer any
questions you may have.
Call them today to schedule
your appointment at
492-4327.

posture
protects you 'X "
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.
I 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).

Mickey Mouse gets ready to sail on





Disneys European cruise vacation


BY KELLI KENNEDY
GUEST WRITER


Mickey Mouse is going on
a European vacation in the
summer of 2007.
The Disney Cruise Line will
sail to Italy, France and Spain
from May to August 2007 as
part of a larger strategy to
"chart new waters," company
officials said.
The Disney Magic will offer
eight alternating 10-night and
11-night Mediterranean
cruises, departing from Bar-
celona, Spain, and stopping
in eight European cities.
Traveling through Europe
can be daunting, especially
with small children, company
President Tom McAlpin said.
A Disney cruise takes the
guesswork out of what cities
to hit, where to eat and what
shows to see, he said.
"The cruise takes care of all
of that and people trust
Disney. At the end of the day
you know you're coming back
to the ship and having five-
star dining, great entertain-
ment and you know your kids
are going to have a good
time," he said.
Disney is considering
expanding beyond its two
ships, which have been suc-
, cessful since they began oper-
ating Caribbean voyages in
1998. But "it's not the right
time now," McAlpin said.
But the European ex-pan- '
sion will have little impact on
the cruise industry overall, an
analyst said. Major players
such as Carnival Corp. and
Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.
already operate in Europe
with cruise lines that cater
specifically to European vaca-
Stioners.,
Even if the unit of The Walt
Disney Co. decided to add a
few new ships,, it would pale
' in comparison to the 16 ships

industry leader Carnival will
add in the next four years on
top of its 80-ship fleet, said
Craig Parmelee, a credit ana-
lyst for Standard & Poor's.
Disney's announcement
does come at a time when the
industry is flourishing. De-
spite media reports focusing
on crime and safety problems
on vessels, bookings are up,
according to the Cruise Lines
International Association.
Ticket prices are also return-
ing to highs set before the
recession and Sept. 11 terror-
ist attacks.
The association projects
the number of cruise travelers
to increase by about 500,000
people from last year, to
about 11.7 million..;
Trips have become more
attractive values because of
larger ships, diverse enter-
tainment options and on-
board innovations with luxu-
ry amenities supper clubs,
bowling alleys, afternoon tea,
movie theaters, and even ice
rinks and water slides.
Disney is a relative late-
comer to the industry. It start-
ed with the Magic in 1998. It
added the Disney Wonder


later that year and now offers
cruises to the Caribbean, the
Bahamas and its own island,
Castaway Cay. The cruise line

Famous gangster is a. draw at Hot Springs


STAFF REPORT


A photograph of one of the
world's most famous mob-
sters vacationing in Hot
Springs, Ark., is being used for
a new postcard to promote

the historic town.
The photo shows Al Capone
wearing a floppy cowboy hat
and riding a donkey in Happy
Hollow Springs, a popular
tourist spot in the town in the
1930s. Capone is joined by his
brother, Ralph "Bottles" Ca-
pone, and George Meyer, who
supposedly drove the getaway
car in the St. Valentine's Day
Massacre in Chicago.
"Here you have these three
known gangsters just playing
tourist and putting these
crazy hats on and riding don-
keys," said Steve Arrison, ex-
ecutive director of the Hot
Springs Convention and
Visitors Bureau.
Other postcards generated
by the visitors bureau show
Babe Ruth, former President


Franklin D. Roosevelt and
fishing legend Jerry McKinnis
having fun in Hot Springs,
Arrison said. The last post-
card featured an elementary
school photo of former
President Bill Clinton, who
grew up in Hot Springs.
The Capone photo was
found at Shaw's Antiques,
owned by Mike Shaw. Shaw,
who has been in the antiques
business in Hot Springs for
nearly 50 years, said collecting
old photographs is a hobby
that came naturally from buy-
ing antiques for his store.
In the 1930s, Hot Springs
was considered .neutral
ground for mobsters who vis-
ited, Arrison said. Capone fre-
quented the town so often he
had his own suite at the
Arlington Hotel, and guests at
the Arlington still ask to stay
in 'Al's Suite."

When a verb is not a verb, or, do you know your gerunds?


I try to avoid grammar jar-
gon in this column. And, as
you might guess, one of three
possible explanations applies.
Either 1. I'm too modest to
flaunt my dazzling expertise.
2. I1 don't want to turn off read-
ers with a lot of gobbledy-
gook. Or, 3. I don't know any-
where near as much about
this stuff as I should and I'd
rather not call attention to
this fact.
Take your pick.
But sometimes knowing a
little jargon is actually helpful.
For example, consider the
word "walking" in the sen-
tence, "Walking is great exer-
cise." Now ask yourself, what
part of speech is "walking"?
How about in the sentence,
"Walking down the street, I
saw a lot of trees"? Now what
part of speech is it?
Let's try a slightly different
one: "I love to walk." What
part of speech is "to walk"?
If in either case you said
"verb," think again.
Sometimes a verb isn't a
verb. Sometimes it's a differ-
ent part of speech entirely.
Welcome to the wonderful
world of the "verbal" a
form of a verb used as a noun,

adjective or adverb.
Don't feel bad if you hadn't
heard of verbals, because
chances are that you have
heard of the three types of
verbals: gerunds, participles
and infinitives.
In the sentence, "Walking
is great exercise," the word
"walking" is actually a noun.
And anytime a form of a verb
is acting as a noun and (this is
a big and) ends in "ing," well,
you've got yourself a gerund.
And this is a great example
of how a word we think of as a
verb can actually be the sub-
ject of a sentence. In our
example sentence, the sub-
ject, which is a noun, is "walk-
ing." The verb is "is."
There. Now that wasn't so
bad was it? Aren't you glad
you kept reading despite your
natural impulse to turn the
page the minute you saw the
word "gerund"?
Good. Then we're ready to
move on to our second famil-
iar-yet-nonetheless-alienat-
ing term, "participle." Look at
that second example. "Walk-
ing down the street, I saw a lot
of trees."
What's the subject of that
sentence? It's "I." And what's
the verb? It's "saw." So how are
we to understand the role of
"walking" in this whole mess?
With the word "participle."
Like gerunds, some par-
ticiples end in "ing." But par-
ticiples can also end in "en" or
"ed."
"Driven by greed, Tom


cooked the books." Here, "dri-
ven" is a participle.
"Emboldened by Tom's
actions, Sue began embez-
zling." Here, "emboldened" is
a participle.
Not that both of these
words can function as verbs
when they're accompanied
by auxiliaries. "I have driven
to the store." "I have embold-.
ened the enemy."
But without "have" or
some other auxiliary, they're
just part of a real verb. Hence
the name participle.
But unlike gerunds, which
function as nouns, the par-
ticiple's function is basically
that of an adjective. That is,
they describe a noun.
Now, with gerunds and
participles under your belt,
you've entered the final
stretch, with just one more to
go. "Infinitives," as you proba-
bly know, are the base form of
a verb plus "to." "To walk," "to
be," "to laugh," "to dance" -
these are all verbs in the
infinitive form.
And usually, they're not
acting as verbs.
In the sentence, "I love to
dance," the infinitive "to
dance" is actually the object
of the action. It is the thing I
love. And a thing, we know, is
a noun.
In, "He really came to play,"
the verb is "came." The infini-
tive "to play" modifies the
verb. Therefore, the infinitive
is actually functioning as an
adverb.


In, "He has an urge to run,"
the infinitive modifies a noun,
and therefore, its function is
really that of an adjective.
See? I told you it wasn't that
painful. Which means I can
sleep soundly tonight night
knowing that I haven't sub-
jected you to verbal abuse.

St. Francis Animal Rescue

needs your support


STAFF REPORT


St. Francis Animal Rescue
of Venice (SFAR) needs your
support. Spring is here and
that signals the start of kitten
season when homeless ani-
mals breed and produce lit-
ters of unwanted kittens.
The shelter and adoption
center are already at capacity
and many more homeless kit-
tens will soon need a home.
Many dedicated volunteers
go north this time of year a
time when volunteer help is
most desperately needed.
"Volunteers, adopters and
donors are the reason we help
so many animals each year,"
says Grace Joyce, president
and cofounder, "and we're
desperate for their assistance
at this time of the year." If you
can open your home to a new


pet, volunteer a few hours
each week in the adoption
center or at the Cattery Thrift
Store, or help by donating
financial support or cat litter
or food the organization
needs your help. Additional
volunteer opportunities are
also needed to help with spe-
cial events, newsletter activi-
ties and other assistance.
To help today, call Joyce at
485-8082 or visit the Shel-
ter/Adoption Center at 1925
South Tamiami Trail, just
south of Seminole, or The
Cattery Thrift Store at 1651
South Tamiami Trail in the
Jacaranda Plaza.
Adoption Center (492-6200)
(1-5 p.m., Monday through
Thursday; 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Sat-
urday) or The Cattery Thrift
Store (492-6210) (9 a.m.-4 p.m.,
Monday through Saturday).

MILLER


carries blood from the heart
to the rest of the body. As
blood flows through the
aorta, the weak area bulges
like a balloon and can burst
if it gets too big, causing life-
threatening internal bleed-
ing. In fact, nearly 80 percent
of AAA's that rupture are fatal,
but the good news is that
more than nine out of 10 that
are detected through screen-
ings are treatable.
The problem with AAA's is
that because they usually
start small and enlarge slowly
- they rarely show any
symptoms. That is why
screening is crucial. The
most common symptoms
however (with enlarged
AAA's) may be a throbbing, or


pulsation in the abdomen, or
sometimes abdominal or
lower back pain occurs.
Are you at risk?
An estimated 200,000 peo-
ple are diagnosed with AAA
each year, but studies sug-
gest that 1 in 20 Americans
age 60 and older (more than
2 million people) may have
an AAA and not know it. Are
you one of them? Here are
the key factors that put you
at risk.
Age: Your risk of getting
an AAA increases significant-
ly after age 55 in men, and
after age 70 in women.
Gender: AAAs are four
times more common in men
than in women.


Family history- Having a
parent or sibling who has
had an AAA can increase
your risk to around one in
four.
Smoking: Ninety percent
of people with AAA's smoke
or have smoked. This is the
number one risk factor and
one you can avoid.
Health factors:
Atherosclerosis also known
as hardening of the arteries,
high blood pressure (140/90
or higher) and high choles-
terol levels also increase your
risk.
Get screened
The best way to detect an
AAA is to get a simple, pain-
less, 10-minute ultrasound


screening test. All men over
the age of 60 and anyone age
55 or older with high risk fac-
tors should be tested. Here
are some convenient screen-
ing services you should know
about.
American Vascular
Association: Offers free vas-
cular screenings (in May) at
more than 250 sites around
the country. They test for
AAAs as well as carotid artery
disease and peripheral arteri-
al disease. To find a screening
site near you visit vascular-
web.org or call (877) 282-
2010.
Life Line Screening: A
private company that pro-
vides AAA screenings for
around $45 per test. They


have more than 45 ultra-
sound teams that travel to
14,000 sites around the
country each year. To find an
upcoming screening in your
area visit lifelinescreening
.com or call (800) 697-9721.
Treatment
Treatment for an AAA will
depend on the size of the
aneurysm, its rate of growth
and your general health. If
caught in the early stages
when the aneurysmr is small,
it can be monitored and
treated with medication.
However, if it is large or
enlarging rapidly you'll prob-
ably need surgery.
Savvy tips


Starting in 2007, Medicare
will pay for ultrasound
screening tests to detect AAA
for new Medicare enrollees
who are considered at high
risks. And for more informa-
tion on AAA, the Pacific
Vascular Research Foun-
dation offers a free newslet-
ter and publications on AAA,
stroke, high blood pressure
and other vascular diseases.

Association of America


STAFF REPORT


Why we love artists and 'avant gardity'


It's spring, you know.
Maybe that's what brought
us a spring visit from the local
art teacher, Janice Thompson.
She's the one who couldn't get
accepted into the regional art
shows with her own work
until she loaded a 12-gauge


shotgun with paint pellets
and blasted a sheet of ply-
wood. Won first prize in the
"ballistic" school of art.
So in she came the other
day, sauntering up to the phi-
losophy counter at the Mule
Barn truck stop and ordering
coffee with mouthwash-fla-
vored cream stuff in it. We
who regularly meet for sum-
mit conferences here at the
world dilemma think tank are
always grateful for these visits
from Janice, because we like
to test whether our ideas run
in double harness with avant
garde thinking.
"Boys," she said, "it is an
overwhelming pleasure to see
you gathered here again with-
in these hallowed halls to wel-


come the onset of spring. We
haven't seen this much philo-
sophical talent gathered here'
since ... yesterday?"
"That'd be about right,
Janice," said Doc. Doc is our
unofficial leader because he
has lots of initials after his
name and he can cut people
open and fix them.
"Yep," she said. "Today I
rake my leaves."
"Little late on that, aren't
you?" Dud asked.
"Nope," she said. "Just
right."
She took a sip and turned
to us, focusing her avant
gardity on us like a laser.
"Most of us rake leaves in
the fall, right?"
A general nodding took


place.
"And then we go out and
buy mulch to put around the
tender shoots coming up
from below to protect them
from snow, right? And then in
the spring we rake away some
of the mulch to allow sun-
shine in, right?"
More nodding.
"Well, I let the fall leaves do
the mulching and only rake
once a year. The way every-
one else does it is like that silly
woman I met who paid $30 to
get her poodle clipped 'and
then, bought him a $40
sweater to keep him warm."
There's a reason we have
artists in this world.

Dog Days." See it at


The Board of Trustees of
Self Help for Hard of Hearing
People (SHHH) voted to
change the name of the orga-
nization to the Hearing Loss
Association of America, effec-
tive March 2006.
Terry D. Portis, Ed. D.,
executive director of SHHH
stated, "SHHH needed to
position itself to meet the
need,, ofa new geriratib:i0of
people with hearing loss
while continuing to serve the
constituents who rely on us
today. I believe that by updat-
ing our name and image we
are better able to communi-
cate our message and fulfill
our mission."
Hearing Loss Association
of America's (HLAA) mission
is to open the world of com-
munication to people with
hearing loss through infor-
mation, education, advocacy
and support. Hearing loss has


grown from an estimated 28
million in 1989 to more than
31 million in 2004, and is
anticipated to grow by a third
in less than a generation, to
40 million people. Hearing
loss is a daily challenge you
can overcome. You do not
have to hide your hearing
loss. You do not have to face
hearing loss alone.
Hearing Loss of America
hold its national convention
at the "Cotonado Sptfffgs
Hotel in Orlando this .year.
June 29-July 2. Visit the Web
site at hearingloss.org or call
(301) 657-2248.
The Sarasota Chapter of
Self Help For Hard of Hearing
People (SHHH) will be known
as Hearing Loss Association
of Sarasota (HLAS). They
meet the third Wednesday of
each month at ;he Selb ,
Public Library in Sarasota,
1;30-3:30 p.m. Contact them
online at shhhsarasofa.org or

Volunteers sought for


storm drain marking program


STAFF REPORT

Sarasota County is seeking
volunteers to mark drains
for its Storm Drain Marking
Program. The program's goal
is to raise community aware-
ness about the pollutants
that find their way into the
county's stormwater sys-
tem, and eventually into the
bay.
"Sarasota County's public
stormwater system uses an
interconnected series of
roadway curbs, storm drains,
pipes, ditches and streams to
direct stormwater away from
roadways and homes and
into our bays," says Enmiron-
mental Specialist Kelly West-
over. "It's a good system for
keeping our roads and
homes from flooding during
heavy rains, but we have to
make sure that, ir protects
our waterways as well."

Wild about the zoo
The Bookshop, 241 W. Venice


Westover says people can
pollute stormwater when they
dump, spill or improperly
dispose of substances such
as automobile fluids and
yard and animal waste.
"Most stormwater does
not soak into the ground,"
added Westover. "This means
it will pick up and carry
whatever substances it en-
counters as it flows over
other surfaces."
To remind residents of the
importance of clean storm-
water, the county has begun
placing drain markers at the
entrance of storm drains in
several communities. The
first of these efforts is in the
neighborhoods surrounding
Hudson Bayou. Volunteers
will begin marking approxi-
mately 450 drains around the
Hudson Bayou basin in mid-
April.

Wilderness hiking brings personal satisfaction


LARRY ALLAN
FRESH AIR COLUMNIST

If you've been reading
these columns over the past
months, you might have been
thinking, "I can't get to see
these wild animals personally
because I never get into those
remote areas where they live."
Well, here's a thought for you.
Try taking an organized
trip that will bring you into
some of the areas where I've
been to photograph wildlife.
For instance, the Sierra club
organizes such trips as part of
its "America's Wild Legacy
Conservation Initiative."
These activist outings are
what's at the center of the
Sierra Club's mission to ex-
plore, enjoy and protect the
planet. They've got four spe-
cial ones scheduled for this
year that focus on prepara-
tion for advocates of protec-
tion of wild places. Here are a
couple of their adventure out-
ings for people of all ages that
might appeal to you.
Utah: Aug. 27-Sept. 4.
South-central Utah's undis-
covered high national forest


plateaus on two short moder-
ate backpacking trips, with a
rest day scheduled in bet-
ween. Please note, because of
this split you won't have to
pack a week's supplies. You'll
see the spectacular Escalante
canyonlands as you travel
from the little known Tushar
Highlands to the lovely
Aquarius Plateau.
I had a very difficult time
choosing the one photograph
I'd captured in this area to
illustrate today's column-
bobcat, coyote, American
badger, golden eagle, and
more-but I finally settled on
the cougar. Hopefully, you'll
see some of the wonderful
species I've photographed in
Utah on your trip.
Vermont: Sept. 10-17.
Autumn in New England,
what a wonderful time for
wandering in wild Vermont.
This will be a moderate back-
packing trip in the Glas-
tonbury Mountain Wilder-
ness. Again, there'll be two
short backpacks in the Green
Mountain area. You'll do
some trail maintenance on
this "working" trip as the col-
ors change.
The leaders of both trips
are knowledgeable, dedicated
people who have much to
share with you on these
enjoyable educational excur-
sions. You might wish to learn
more from the Sierra Club's
Web site: sierraclub.org/out-
ings/national or call their 24-
hour voicemail number: (415)
977-5522 (that's in San
Francisco). Cost of the Utah
trip is $545; Vermont $595.


PHOTO COURTESY OF LARRY ALLAN
I spotted this beautiful cougar approaching a break in the bluff, focused on the spot I thought he'd jump from, and captured the
big cat in mid-air in southern Utah. I was in the right place at the right time.


Membership in the Sierra
Club is required, but that's a
small investment to help pre-
serve the wild places you'll be
enjoying.
With the threat to the
integrity of our wilderness
areas that has been fostered
in the past few years in


Washington, D.C., you might
wish to experience wild
places before it's too late.
After your trip, perhaps you'll
want to help prevent the ero-
sion of our wild places by
sharing your wilderness ex-
periences with others, some-
what as I'm doing through


these columns.
"In wildness is the preser-
vation of the world," Thoreau
once said. Nature can provide
us a kind of peace and sereni-
ty that's unmatched, that has
lasted down through the ages.
Nature is inspirational to
humankind. Get inspired by


wilderness. Get out and enjoy,
for your own personal satis-
faction.

Allan is an award-winning

STAFF REPORT

Florida has achieved a
milestone at Petfinder.com,
the largest online database of
homeless pets.
"Recentlywe signed up our
400th Florida animal place-
ment organization," said
Betsy Saul, president and co-
founder of the Web site,
which has more than 9,000
groups posting nationwide
and in Canada, Puerto Rico,
Mexico and others. "It's very
gratifying because that trans-
lates to more Florida pets
finding permanent homes."
Sandy Hollon of Loxa-
hatchee, Fla., adopted a dog
after seeing her on Petfinder.
The dog was abandoned at
the shelter with a litter of pup-
pies. "All her pups were
adopted," Hollon said, "but
nobody wanted an adult. We
did! She now has a forever
home, and we have a very
good friend. We would not
have found her if it hadn't
been for Petfinder.com." Car-
ly was listed on the site by
Puppies Under Protection in
Royal Palm Beach.
More than five million visi-
tors use the site each month,
and it is the 84th largest site
on the Web, according to
HitWise, an Internet rating
service.
Each pet and there are
approximately 190,000 of
them at any given time post-


ed on the site has its own
home page with details about
its personality and usually a
photograph. Visitors to the
site enter their search criteria,
and a list comes back, ranked
in proximity to the potential
adopter's Zip code. Another
option is to search at particu-
lar shelters only. Adoptions
are handled by the agency
that has the pet in its care.
The site is free to visitors
and to its shelter and rescue
members, thanks to spon-
sors. Purina signed on as the
Web site's premier sponsor.
Other exclusive sponsors
are Bissell Homecare, Inc., a
manufacturer of home clean-
ing and floor care products,
Petco, a national pet supply
retailer that sponsors in-store
adoptions and provides
coupon books for new ado-
pters, The Animal Rescue Site,
and Merial, maker of the
number one veterinary-rec-
ommended flea and tick pre-
ventative Frontline and heart-
worm preventive Heartgard.
Petfinder.com has also
allied with PetHealth, Inc.,
to provide a gift of one
month of ShelterCare Pet
Insurance, paid for by
Petfinder.com, to every dog
or cat adopted from a
Petfinder.com member in
approved states and pro-
vinces. The program is the
first of its kind for shelter
pets.

A new gospel truth about Judas?


BY JEFF TAVARES
STAFF WRITER / PHOTO EDITOR

In the four canonical gospels of the New

Testament, written c. A.D. (Common Era) 48-140,

there are several references to Judas betraying

Jesus to the Romans.

But did he do it, as most Christians believe and

Zhristian doctrine teaches?

Not exactly, according to the Gospel of Judas.


In the 66-page codex of the
gospel released April 6 by the
National Geographic Society,
Judas is portrayed as acting at
Jesus' request.
The National Geographic
Society, the Maecenas Foun-
dation for Ancient Art and the
Waitt Institute for Historical
Discovery were part of an
international effort to
authenticate and translate
the document, which is said
to date from A.D. 300.
A new book by Herb Kron-
sney, "The Lost Gospel,"
chronicles the discovery of
the codex and the process of
authenticating, restoring and
translating the gospel.
"We're confident this is
genuine ancient Christian lit-
erature," said Bart Ehman, a
religious scholar at the Uni-
versity of North Carolina-
Chapel Hill, as reported in
USA Today. Ehman and the
team that translated the
gospel spoke at a Natiqnal
Geographic Society briefing
when the translation was
released.
In the gospel Jesus is
reported to have said to
Judas, "You shall be cursed for
generations," adding "you
will come to rule over them."
Finally Jesus says to Judas,
"But you will exceed all of
them. For you will sacrifice
the man that clothes me."
This, according to scholars
at the National Geographic
Society press conference,
implies that Judas is Jesus'
favorite disciple and that he
has been chosen to turn Jesus
in to the Roman authorities.
If it's true Jesus asked Judas
to turn him over to the
Romans, it clearly runs con-
trary to current Christian
belief and doctrine.
On the heels of the recent
debate over the controversial
book, "The Da Vinci Code,"
the release of the translation
of the Gospel of Judas is cer-
tain to spark new arguments
and revive old ones over


other gospels
discovered in the
last 50 years.
Is it authentic?
The codex un-
derwent exten-
sive radiocarbon
dating, ink an-
alysis and multi-
spectral imaging.
There has
been little if any
dispute over the
authenticity of
the codex since
its release.
A professor of
Coptic studies at
the University of
Munster in Ger-
many, speaking
to the New York
Times on April 6,
said, "This, is
absolutely typi-
cal of ancient
Coptic manu-
scripts: ... I am
completely con-
vinced."
History of the
codex
The Gospel of
Judas was first
referred to by
Irenaeus, Bishop
of Lyon, in "Ad-
versus Hae-
reses," written in
A.D. 180. In this
.work Irenaeus
writes, "They
declare that
Judas the traitor
was thoroughly
acquainted with
these things, and
that he alone,
knowing the
truth as no oth- -
ers did, accom-
plished the mys-
tery of the
betrayal; by him
all things, both earthly and
heavenly, were thus thrown
into confusion. They produce
a fictional history of this kind,


which they style the Gospel of
Judas."
The codex itself traveled a
strange path to its rediscovery


in 2004.
The original person to find
the codex was believed to be
a now-deceased antiquities
prospector near the village nf
Beni Mlasai near El Nlinya.,
Egypt. who sold it to a Cairo
antiquities dealer named
Hanna. Historians believe
this occurred during the
1970s. Hoeveer. experts vary
not only on the date but also
the exact location of the dis-
covery.


The fragile papyrus codex
was stolen from that dealer
but then recovered.
For at least the next decade


the codex was traded and
sold among antiquity dealers
in Europe until the mid
1980s. Then how is
unknown the codex was
placed in a safe-deposit box
at a bank in Hicksville, N.Y,
where ittayed for 16 years.
cFrieda Nussberger-Tcha-
cos, a Zurich dealer, bought
the codex in 2000.
After attempts to resell
what then was known as the
Codex Tchacos,; Nussberger-
Tchacos turned
over" the codex
to the Mae-
cenas Foun-
dation for An-
cient Art, where
efforts began to
restore, con-
serve and trans-
late the docu-
ment.
This culmi-
nated in the
April 6 National
Geographic
news coiifer-
ence -in Wash-
ington, D.C.,
during which
the translation
of the gospel
was released.
Gnostic
origins
There are
many other
gospels in exis-
tence, although
only four -
those attributed
to Matthew,
Mark, Luke and
John have
been canon-
ized, or accept-
ed by the Chris-
tian community
as being ins-
pired by God
and written as
the authorita-
tive history of
God and his re-
lationship to his
people.
However,
there are also
differences in
this acceptance
among Chris-
tian traditions or
faiths.
For most
Christians, the
discovery and
distribution of
the Gospel of Thomas, in
1959, was when they first
heard about the Gnostics.
Recently the release of


"The Da Vinci Code" has
spread the word of the
Gnostics.
The ,Gospel of Judas is
believed to have been written
by Gnostics.
Many other of the non-
canonical gospels, including
those of Mary Magdalene,
Phillip and Thomas, are also
believed to ha% e been written
by the Gnostics.
The Gnostics e.dsted in the
first few centuries A.D.







names folrthilip









Although there is no sim-
ple definition of Gnosticism,
it is accepted that they be-
lieved in the pursuit of mysti-
cism or special knowledge.
Gnostics did believe in a
remote, yet supreme, creator.
Different sects had various
names for this creator, al-
though they were generally
known as aeons. These aeons,
however, are often men-
tioned in male/female pairs.
Gnostics also believed that
the "fall of man" would be a
divine act. This stage of their
belief usually involves the
Gnostic figure Sophia ("wis-
dom" in Greek). Sophia is a
recurrent figure in Gnostic
texts and also written as
being the female femalein a male/
female aeon.
What does it mean?
Religious scholars and the-
ologians are certain to debate
the meaning of the gospel for
some time to come. Is it
authentic? If it is, what does it
mean?
If Jesus did ask Judas to
turn him in to the Romans,
could it have been left out of
the four canonical Gospels
simply because, as one schol-
ar suggested during the NGS
press conference, the conver-
sation took place in private?

Flynns get to claim

Cypress Falls at
The Woodlands

By VIVIAN DAWSON
SPECIAL TO THE SUN
any working folks take advantage
of the first day in the weekend to
sleep in a little longer, linger over
breakfast and plan the weekend
chores and activities. For Joan and
Joe Flynn, however, it was up and
out on a Saturday morning a few
months ago, not exactly at the crack of
dawn, but pretty early, to secure the home of
their dreams.
The Woodlands, a master-planned com-
munity in North Port, being built by Centex
Homes, was having a 12-hour promotional
event on homes in Cypress Falls.
The Flynns, originally from Buffalo, N.Y,
moved to Florida in 1997. They settled in
Bradenton, Fla., and after four years they
sought out the less-congested Port Char-

lotte. Joe, who is a Realtor,
also realized the greater real
estate values to be found
here.
After five years, the Flynns
became intrigued by what
the brand new Woodlands
community in North Port
was bringing to the area.
They had previously seen
Centex Homes' Venetian Falls


community in Venice and
were impressed by it. So, they
decided to take a look at
Cypress Falls at The Wood-
lands.
They liked the idea of living
in a maintenance-free home
in a gated community, with
baby boomers like them-
selves, in the 55-plus age
group as neighbors. In
addition, they wanted to get
closer to Joan's place of
employment and The


Woodlands was a perfect fit.
So, one month after their
first visit, the Flynns found
themselves back at Cypress
Falls.
According to Cypress Falls
sales associate, Tara Dunfee,
the Flynns were the first in
line when the doors to the ,
sales center at The Wood-
lands opened at 8 a.m.
