Jon Preiksat's volunteer work
for poor Venice residents
lands him a paying job
representing Sarasota's
low-income residents, and
in the midst of city manag-
er's push to create a regional
public housing authority.

BY JJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

City Manager Marty Black is
organizing a push to create a region-
al public housing authority with one
governing body that would include
Venice, Sarasota, Arcadia and Punta
Gorda.
But Venice attorney Jon Preiksat
said the idea of consolidating
Venice's public, housing complex
with Sarasota's would be like "mar-
rying into the bin Laden family."
Preiksat is donating his time to
represent the Venice Residents
Council at Grove Terrace Apart-'
ments, the only'public housing
complex in South County. He and


have been condemned, rats and
roaches are running loose the
kind of things you expect to read
about in the South Bronx, not in
Sarasota County, one of the wealthi-
est areas in the world.
"With just 50 units, we're going to
be at the bottom of the food chain.
... It makes me nervous to give up
local control."
There are no consolidation plans
on the table at this time.
Just talking
It was Black who recently encour-
aged the Miami office of the U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban
Development to consider the idea of
consolidation. HUD is using Venice
City Hall as a meeting location at 10
a.m. May 1 to discuss this idea with
other housing authorities and
municipalities.
Black does not know how many
other municipalities or housing
authorities will attend.
Sam Prost, chairman of the
Venice Housing Authority, could not
bq reached for comment, buthe has
told both the city manager and
Preiksat that VHA will not support
the consolidation idea.

Venice has its own version of

Coast Chopper motorcycle design-

Discovery Channel series, "Monster

He is Robert Terone, 54, CEO,
CFO, president, owner and founder

Venice.
"I started this business by bor-
rowing $18,000 on my credit card
and cashing in my retirement in
1993," Terone said. "Nobody gave
me anything."
Terone said it took him three-
and-one half years to recover the
seed money used to start the busi-

was living on hot dogs," he said. "I
thought I was.going to have to bail
outbonce, but things turned for the
better."
Terone said his first-year sales
were a mere $23,000. He said his
sales for this year should be in the
neighborhood of $250,000.
"My bookkeeper is working on
those figures now," Terone said.
Prior to starting his Venice bike
shop at 525 E. Venice Ave., Terone
worked in the collision shop of a
local automobile dealer for 10 years.
Before that, he had a small motorcy-
cle shop in New Rochelle, N.Y.
Running a successful motorcycle
business requires sacrifices.
"We work six days," Terone said,
"So, no, I don't get a chance to do as
much riding as I'd like."
Dream job
It was in 2003 that Mikal Wilson,


now 52, roared into Terone's East
Venice Avenue shop on his 1977 full-
dress (fairing, windshield, luggage)
Harley Davidson ElectraGlide for
some service.
"He was building a custom bike
and I asked him if he needed help
and he said OK, so I volunteered,"
Wilson said. "So I would stop by
evenings after work (in a machine
shop) and six months later I started
working for him full time."
Wilson was bitten by the motor-
cycle bug more years ago than he
cares to remember.
"I just like working on bikes.

said. "This is sort of a dream job."

ASSISTANT EDITOR

A month from today, Sarasota,
County Commissioners will take
another look at the expansion and
redevelopment of Venice's Fisherman's
Wharf.
County approval is needed for the
686 feet of floating dock Wharf owner
John Konecnik wants to extend into the
Intracoastal Waterway near Hatchett
Creek Bridge.
Konecnik had permit approval for
400 feet of this dock, which has been
sitting on his property for two years, but
those permits expired as he pursued an
appeal to obtain the additional 286 feet.
This puts Konecnik back at square
one in what's been a four-year battle to
expand and make improvements to
Fisherman's Wharf.'
Unlike the last time, Venice City
Council will review and comment on
the permit application. County com-
1B nissioners, who have authority over
9B dock permits within city limits, were
EB not given any city input in 2004.
IB City council will review the dock pro-
posal at its May 9 meeting and send a


city staff person to the county hearing
May 23, according to City Manager
Marty Black
"My concerns and those of city staff
are to consider the impacts to the state
fire codes since the last time this project
was approved," Black said. "There have
been substantial changes to the code."
'Screwed up'
Many of those concerns involve
access to the wharf site and floating
docks. Both Black and city emergency
officials question if fire and rescue vehi-
cles have enough room to serve the
wharf and floating docks.
This would be a new set of chal-
lenges to Konecnik's docks. Previous
challengers were residents at Harbor
Lights Mobile Home Park, the wharf's
next-door neighbors.
Konecnik has long said his goal is to
create a vibrant marina area that will
remain open to the public. The 286 feet
of dock eliminated by county commis-
sioners was to be dedicated to transient
boaters.
In a February story, Konecnik was

the residents are trying to stop the
Venice Housing, Authority from
demolishing the existing 50 low-
income apartments and replacing
them with 144 mixed-income units.
After his efforts caught the atten-
tion of the Sarasota Residents
Council, it retained Preiksat to
review the Sarasota Housing
Authority's redevelopment propos-
al. SHA wants to demolish 388 low-
income family units and replace
them with 845 mixed-income units.
But, much as Preiksat's work in
Venice revealed,, the Sarasota plan
would actually result in a net loss of
apartments for the poor. Only 120 of
those apartments would be for low-
income families, and the rest sold or
rented at or just below market value.
Add that on top of condemned
buildings and a federal takeover of
public housing operations at the
Sarasota Housing Authority, and it
makes no sense to mix Venice's
"small-scale" problems in with
Sarasota's.
Black says it would give Venice
more bargaining power, but Preiksat
believes it would only make matters
worse.
"Sarasota Housing Authority is so
bad, you can't even imagine how
bad it is," Preiksat said. "Buildings


"There needs to at least be a dis-
cussion," Black said. "We need to
evaluate if this is a viable alterna-
tive."
Preiksat disagrees that Venice will
gaini bargaining power by joining
with neighboring housing authori-
ties. Instead, an administrative team
that works in some other city would
decide how important Grove
Terrace projects area.
In Sarasota County alone, there
are 1,848 public housing units,
according to statistics generated by
Preiksat. Only 50 of those are in
Venice, while 1,364 units are within
Sarasota city limits. The remaining
434 are in unincorporated Sarasota
County.
Preiksat said Grove Terrace resi-
dents need to see a list of specific
benefits before they'd ever endorse
such an idea. HUD cannot be trust-
ed, he said, because it's "trying to
remove itself from the public hous-
ing business and the problems it
created."
Family feuds
Venice Housing Authority will
find out this fall if the first phase (72
units) of its project will be awarded

Pet shelters

The good news is that this
area will have pet shelters for
future hurricanes.
The bad news is the rigma-
role a pet person must go
through. Bring a crate. Bring
medical records. Bring pho-
tographs. In a rushed hurr-
cane evacuation, these re-
quirements won't be met by
many in need.
There's a better way.
Airlines should be willing to '
donate travel crates for tem-
porary use in a shelter. Take a
digital photo of each owner
and pet, with an identification
number visible. And, most T]
important, a responsible per- W
son will stay in the same
building as the beloved pet.

MCC, USF strengthen cooperation agreement


STAFF REPORT

The two top administra-
tors of Manatee Community
College and USF Sarasota-
Mang emueIly en-
ter edu-
ca fCrMiTin t'Wed-
-e -sagning- cerfenony at
MCCVenice, MNCC President
Dr. Sarah H. Pappas and USF
Sarasota-Manatee CEO Dr.
Laurey Stryker inked a new
articulation agreement that
enhances a landmark 2001
cooperation agreement be-
tween the two schools.
Among its many benefits,
the new agreement strength-
ens what many people know
as the "2+2 Program," which
streamlines the transfer pro-
cess for college students who
take freshman and sopho-
more level classes at MCC
and then finish their junior
:and senior years at USF
Sarasota-Manatee.
One of the new enhance-
ments enables MCC gradu-
ates to receive provisional
e.rly acceptance at USF
Sarasota-Manatee. In other
words, an MCC student who
successfully finishes 30 hours
toward an associate's degree
at MCC, and who is in good
academic standing is eligible
to attend USF Sarasota-
Manatee after MCC gradua-
tion and after the student has
completed required USF
paperwork.
"Essentially, an MCC grad-
uate will have a step ahead of
other applicants at USF Sara-


sota-Manatee, because of this
automatic provisional accep-
tance," said Stryker. "So, if an
MCC graduate chooses to
continue college course work
at USF Sarasota-Manatee,
then he or she simply needs
to complete and submit the
remaining paperwork requir-
ed for USF admission."
Additionally, the new artic-
ulation agreement now in-
cludes a noncompete clause
between the schools, assur-
ing that each school will keep
to its current respective de-
gree programs.
MCC will retain its focus
on a wide realm of associate's
degrees, while USF Sarasota-
Manatee will maintain its
offerings of numerous bache-
lor's and master's degrees.
"In an era when many two-
year community colleges are
striving to become four-year
colleges, this agreement be-
tween MCC and USF bucks
the trend," said Pappas. "The
wisdom and strength of this
new agreement lies in the
mutual benefits that result
from focusing on our own
institutions' respective
strengths, while we further
enhance our collaboration in
areas of needed growth for
this community."
While the agreement now
specifies both schools will
maintain their respective
educational turfs, they also
will collaborate to develop
joint-use facilities at MCC
Venice toward the goal of pro-
viding additional higher edu-
cation opportunities to more


residents of South Sarasota
County.
"MCC and USF Sarasota-
Manatee have already been
cooperating and co-existing
very successfully since 2001,"
said Rip duPont, chair .of
MCC's board of trustees.
"This new agreement will in-
crease and expand that coop-
eration, enabling additional
successes for traditional
and nontraditional students
throughout the region, espe-
cially the fast-growing area
around MCC Venice."
Jan Smith, chair of USF
Sarasota-Manatee's Campus
Board and a member of the
USF board of trustees, sees
additional benefits of the new
agreement.
"The business community
benefits tremendously from
such educational coopera-
tion, due to increased effi-
ciencies and additional joint
staffing opportunities," said
Smith. "Likewise, collabora-
tion like this enables both
institutions to better identify
and implement new academ-
ic programs that serve the
business community's evolv-
ing workforce needs.'
The most recent USF stu-
dent enrollment data indicate
that a large number of MCC
graduates are already contin-
uing their junior and senior
years at USF Sarasota-Manatee.
For example, among 1,829
former MCC students who
enrolled at any of the four
USF campuses for the current
Spring 2006 semester, 953 (or
52 percent) of those former

MCC students are enrolled at
USF Sarasota-Manatee.
One of those students is

homemaker who is majoring
in elementary education at
USF Sarasota-Manatee after
graduating from MCC in
2005. She also is a recent
inductee into the ranks of


Who's Who Among Students
in American Colleges and
Universities.
"The course schedule
worked well for me: The
hours allowed me to be avail-
able for my family and fulfill
my academic pursuits," said
Spielman. "The best thing
about 2+2 was that I was able
to take 75 percent of my class-


es at MCC Venice, which is

BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

With the early retirement
of Venice Mayor Dean
Calamaras, the poorly word-
ed ,and confusing term limits
section of the Venice City
Charter is causing all kinds of,
confusion.
At least that's the opinion
of nearly every city official
and staff member. Council
members are so uncertain
about 'succession, they or-
dered the city attorney, city
manager and city clerk to cre-
ate a flow chart detailing all of
their election options.
The report will be present-
ed at the 1:30 p.m. regular city
council meeting. The three
charter officers huddled for
more than an hour Friday
morning. When theywere fin-
ished, none of them would
say what was decided.


"Sorry, but I will not dis-
cuss Friday's meeting with
the media until after the
information is given to city
council on April 25," said
Anderson, adding that the
media would be provided a
copy of his opinion.
The city's reticence leaves
others to speculation about
how term limits affect council
members. A council member
who is elected to three con-
secutive, three-year terms for
a total of nine years is termed
out and must take a one-year
hiatus from council.
A committee is reviewing
the elimination of that time-
out for a council member
wanting to run for mayor or
vice versa. Elected time
counts against term limits
whether someone is a council
member or mayor.
If the committee recom-
mends the change, it requires


voter approval and would not
go into effect until 2007.
This matter is complicated
by the mayor retiring with
one year remaining on his
current term. Whoever re-
places Calamaras must run
for election this November for
a one-year term and then,
presumably run again in
November 2007 for a regular
three-year term with all of
this time counting against
term limits. Council mem-
bers are concerned because
this means they could, hypo-
thetically, be elected and re-
elected mayor but not com-
plete nine years in that office.
Where they stand
Based on election dates
and current legal interpreta-
tions of the charter, here is
how the Venice Gondolier Sun
predicts the report will go,
under the current city code.


This also assumes the person
is re-elected by voters:
Mayor Dean Calamaras
- Not affected, since he is the
one retiring early. His current
term does not actually expire
until November 2007.
Vice Mayor Fred Ham-
mett and Bill Willson Both
were first elected November
2004 to a three-year term
(Hammett's appointed time
of December 2003-November
2004 does not count against
term limits). As of November
2006, both have seven years
of eligibility remaining,
meaning either could serve
the one-year term and then
two more full terms, ending
in November 2013.
Rick Tacy Tacy has the
most complicated scenario
because he was elected to an
unfinished term of two years
in 2000. He was re-elected in
November 2002 and 2005,


.. k is to consider design amendments
Ki 1 ,ito.

BY DA .R IN been characterized by small toristsspeedingalongU.S. 41 mixing commercial and office
COR 6NDEMi or narrow parcels, parking in This will be done, Ask said, by space on the lower floors anc


A series of public hearings
conducted by the Nokomis
Center Revitalization Area
Advisory Conunittee will be-
ginm soon to consider pro-
posed amendments to the
original plan, adopted in,
2001. A subcommittee of
Bruce Dillon, chairman, and
Patrick McCarthy of the com-
mittee, and John Ask, presi-
dent of the Nokomis Area Civic
Association, has been working
with staff members of Sarasota
County on the amendments,
which emerged from public
meetings held since last July by
both organizations.
Nokomis commercial pro-
perties along U.S. 41 have,


front of buildings at the high-
way's edge and a broad mix of
architectural features.
"As a result," Ask pointed
out, "our commercial proper-
ties lack distinctiveness."
The proposed amend-
ments will include an archi-
tectural mandate calling for
new buildings in the commu-
nity's commercial corridor to
be in the "Old Florida" style.
But, Ask added, "they'll not
have flat or tin roofs. And they
won't be built of wood."
Parting the asphalt sea
The objective is a destina-
tion composed of similar-
looking structures that will
catch the! attention of mo-


employing porches and wide
overhangs, display windows,
clock towers, parapets, ar-
cades, arches and awnings
To enhance narrow or
small parcels, a requirement
for 10-foot-deep berms or
street trees will be imposed
for buildings close to the
highway. Trees take less
space, but either approach
would eliminate "a sea of
asphalt," Ask observed. Ad-
ditionally, parking will be
restricted to the rear and
sides of buildings.
Facades will be required in
taller buildings if ground-
floor parking is planned. A
cap of five stories or 65 feet
will be imposed on builders


residential units above.
"We want to avoid a devel-
oper putting up a tall, skinny
building that towers over
houses below," Ask said.
A density bonus will be
added to the plan to encour-
age the addition of affordable
housing. Dillon said that no
language existed in the origi-
nal plan on maximum height,
signs, lighting or transition in
development.
"All that will now be added,
if everyone who hears our
proposals agrees," he added.
He anticipates that the
stretch along U.S. 41 from
Shakett Creek to Albee Road
will be developed with hotels
and restaurants.


meaning he will reach term
limits in November 2009. If he
ran for mayor this year,, he
could complete the one-year
term but then would have to
step down in 2009 if re-elect-
ed as mayor in 2007 because
his nine-year limit hits then.
The cycle created by the
Calamaras retirement could
be repeated in 2009 if Tacy
became mayor. This hypo-
thetical situation also would
mean Tacy was elected to five
consecutive terms on coun-
cil, and it's unclear if this
would be a charter violation.
John Moore Originally
elected in November 2002
and re-elected last year,
Moore has five years of eligi-
bility remaining and reaches
term limits in 2011. This


means that if Moore were
elected mayor this Novem-
ber, then in 2007 and 2010, he
would have to step down in
2011 with two years remain-
ing on the mayoral term.
Vicki Taylor and John
Simmonds Unlike the
other council members, nei-
ther Taylor nor Simmonds
would have to resign in order
to run for mayor because
both were first elected in Nov-
ember 2003 and their regular
terms expire this year. Taylor
.and Simmonds reach the
nine-year limit in 2012, how-
ever, meaning they would
have to step down as mayor
that year, leaving one year
remaining and a similar sce-
nario to what's happening
right now.

BIKER from page 1 A


of them would be the first
to say that men like Terone
and Wilson are much more
than mechanics.
They are engineers, and
artists, they would say, like
Jesse James and the Teutul
family of Orange County
Choppers, another hit Dis-
covery Channel motorcycle
series called "American
Chopper."
Like James and the Teutuls,
Terone and Wilson can build,
and have built, bikes from the
ground up.
"That one over there,"
Terone said pointing to a low-
slung, exotic V-twin with an
iridescent paint -job, "I built
that several years ago. The
guy came in, told me what he
wanted and we built it."
Terone bought a 1973
Harley ElectraGlide that
caught fire and burned, leav-
ing nothing but a charred,
skeletal frame. He has been
rebuilding it for more than a
year. Now, nearly fully re-
stored, it looks like a show
bike.
Terone also owns two
other motorcycles.
He said building motorcy-
cles is only a small part of his
business.
"Most of it is repairs, cus-
tom paint, refurbishing, re-
storing, routine service, that
sort of thing," he said.
Terone said he works
closely with nearly 60 suppli-


ers.
Sissy bars and such
Terone said that with
Wilson's background as a
machinist, he is an expert
fabricator.
"We made this from
scratch," Wilson said, holding
up a gleaming chrome "sissy
bar." That means he found
the material and shaped it to
the customer's specifications.
"He wanted an eagle (spe-
cially cut from metal) to fit on
the back of the sissy bar, so we,
made that, too," Wilson said.
A sissy bar is a backrest
mounted on the rear of a
motorcycle seat.
Wilson said when he runs
into problems fabricating or
cutting metal, he goes down
the street to Weeks Machine
Shop and they help out.
"We've got a good working
relationship with them," he
said.
Terone's new shop is about
3,000 square feet, twice the
square footage of the old
shop.
"We've had as many as 30
bikes in here at once," he said.
"Before, I used to have people
wait because I didn't have
room for the bikes."
Terone has everything he
needs to cut and shape metal.
"Welders, band saws, a
lathe, bench grinder, milling
machine," he said. "I've
bought quite a bit of equip-


ment over the years."
Hands on
Like his counterparts from
West Coast Choppers and
Orange County Choppers,
Terone is a hands-on CEO.
"I did the painting on your
new front fender, and Mike
and I put the new (solid
chrome) wheels and floor-
boards on," Terone said. "And
I'm gonna take the bike for a
long ride to make sure every-
thing's OK before we give it
back to you."

In Bob we trust
Terone has built a loyal
customer base over the years,
giving testimony to his simple
business philosophy.
"Bikers are pretty fussy
about their motorcycles," he
said, "so I treat every bike in
here like it was my own."
Terone is proud of the rela-
tionship he has built with his
customers.
"It's trust," he said. "They
know that. I'm not going to
stick them."
Another testimony to
Terone's simple, pedestrian
business formula is the way
his suppliers treat him.
"They accept my company
checks instead, of a credit
card," he said. "That means
they trust me. I have never
bounced a check to them."
Not surprisingly, Terone
has witnessed a dramatic

evolution in motorcycling
over the years from outlaw
to family. Terone said there
are more motorcycle enthusi-
asts now than ever before. He
said more and more women
are catching Harley fever.
Whole families, too, he said.
"I remember times riding
when you'd pull up to a car
and the people would roll the
windows up and look the
other way," Terone said.
"That's all changed."
Rolex, Timex and
biker chicks
On any given Sunday, at
any local biker venue, you see


as many bikers wearing Rolex
watches as are wearing
Timexes. Doctors, lawyers,
engineers, CEOs, teachers,
police officers, fully all the
professions are represented
on motorcycles, mostly
Harley and custom bikes.
iSome critics say you have
to be in the professions to
afford a Harley. Not true.

week just like a car. You
won't live long enough to pay
it off at that rate, but your
heirs might
Indeed, bikes are expen-
sive, running anywhere from
$9,000 for a Harley Sportster


to about $30,000 for the top-
end Harley road bikes and V-
Rod off the showroom floor.
And that's cheap at double
the price. A custom chopper
built by a celebrity builder
can run $150,000 and more.

Sarasota County is All-Americatfinalist n-.-
Sarasota County has been named one of 34 finalist communities
for the 2006 All-America City Award program by the National
Civic League. The All-America City Award final judging will occur
in Anaheim, Calif., on June 10 and 11.
The All-America City Award program is the nation's oldest
community recognition effort. It recognizes communities of all
sizes, including neighborhoods, towns, cities, counties and
regions that have made major progress in meeting their most
important needs.
The All-America City application focuses on identifying and
addressing three community challenges, one of which must
document how the lives of children and youth have been tangibly
improved. Sarasota County's application recounted the impact
of Home Computers for Sarasota County Students, a program
that refurbishes, upgrades and distributes computers to students
in households that don't have computers.
A second program recognized the need and impact of a
community-based adult day respite program for caregivers. The
program is provided by two organizations, A Special Time and
Comfort Connection.
The third featured program is the Neighborhood Environmental
Stewardship Team, a volunteer organization- that increases
awareness and advocates for native -habitats and-watershe
in the community. ,, o..
Sarasota County has applied, for .the award the past three.
years, and last year was among the 30 finalists. .. .,
Magic of Ecology show coming to Sarasota
In recognition of the recycling accomplishments of area students
and teachers over the past year, Sarasota County Solid Waste
is bringing the Steve Trash Magic of Ecology Show to Sarasota
for two command performances from 10:30-11:30 a.m. May 1-2
at the Pineview School auditorium, 1 Python Path, Osprey. The
show features illusions that teach what things are recyclable
and why recycling is a good idea. For more information about
the show, or to find out if your school can attend, contact the

Commissions to
determine disposition
of lots
On May 1, Sarasota County
and city of North Port com-
missioners will discuss the
disposition of 73 lots in the
city that remain unsold after
four online auctions.
To date, the county and
city haTve sold 2,100 lots
.through .a successful online
auction process conducted
by Fisher Auction Company,
the firm selected by the coun-
ty and city to conduct the
sale.
The auction generated al-
most $65 million for the two
governments with 55 percent
going to the city and the
remaining 45 percent going
to the county. The lots came
into public ownership after
the former owners failed to
pay property taxes.
The two commissions are
. scheduled to meet at 6 p.m.
Monday, May 1, at the North
Port City Hall, 4970 City Hall
Blvd, Staff from the county
and city will present options
for disposing of the lots to the
commissioners during the
meeting.
Anyone interested in ob-
taining information about the
lots or the auction process
can visit the city's Web site at
www.cityofnorthport.com;
the county's Web site at
www.scgov.net; or Fisher's
Web site at www.fisherauc-
tion.com.
County, FPL enter
partnership
' Sarasota County and Flor-
ida Power & Light are working
in partnership to develop a
photovoltaic solar facility at
Rothenbach Park, formerly
the Bee Ridge Landfill site,
8350 Bee Ridge Road, Sara-
sota..
The project moved closer
to reality lastt week, ,as the
AV. \


Sarasota County Commission
approved the signing of a host
site lease.
Photovoltaic panels, also
known as "solar cells," con-
vert sunlight into electricity.
Because they have no moving
parts, they are quiet, and
because they require no fuel
to operate, they release no
hazardous emissions into the
environment.
This will be FPCs first solar
facility on Florida's West Coast
as part of the company's
Sunshine Energy program. It
will also be the largest project
of its kind in Florida.
The solar facility, to be
installed by FPL's contractor,
PVOne, will generate clean'
electricity and be the direct
result of FPL's customers'
support of the Sunshine
Energy program. Electricity
generated at Rothenbach
Park about 250 kilowatts,
or enough energy to power 44
homes will feed into the
FPL grid.
The solar installation will
corisist of ground-mounted
photovoltaic panels that face
west onh Bee. Ridge Road
Extension. There is no cost to
.the county, and PVOne is
responsible for the develop-
ment, maintenance and
insurance of all equipment.

County to survey project
participants
Over the next two weeks,
about 4,500 Sarasota County
residents who participated in
the county's automated gar-
bage collection pilot project
will receive surveys asking
their opinions about the new
collection service.
The survey marks the offi-
cial endof the six-month pilot
project, and the results will be
factored into the final deci-
sion whether the program
will be implemented county-
.wide. ,,


Sarasota County Solid
Waste began testing the auto-
mated carts last October, to
see if they would make
garbage pickup cleaner and
more efficient for area resi-
dents.
The automated carts hold
up to three normal garbage
cans' worth of material, ac-
cording to Solid Waste Man-
ager Larry Alexander. They're
resistant to animals and pre-
vent lids from blowing away
in heavy winds.
The program was tested in
neighborhoods throughout
the county that represent dif-
ferent types of collection sce-
narios. There was no addi-
tional cost to the participants
for the cart during the pilot
project.
Now that the pilot project
is ending, Alexander encour-
ages all pilot participants to
complete the survey cards
that will soon be arriving by
mail. Alexander said a pre-
sentation to county commis-
sioners will occur in May.


For more information
about automated cart collec-
tion service, contact the
Sarasota County Call Center
at 861-5000 and ask for Solid
Waste Customer Service.
Help mark storm drains
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 coun-
ty's stormwater system, and
eventually into the bay.
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 about 450
drains around the Hudson
Bayou basin in mid-April.
Each marker bears the
phrase, "No dumping!" in


both English and Spanish and
will be permanently affixed to
the curb.
In addition to volunteering
for the drain-marking system,
residents can help keep
stormwater safe by reporting
anyone improperly disposing
of pollutants on the ground or
in any part of the stormwater
system. Sarasota County ac-
cepts calls about these re-
ports 24 hours a day at 861-
5000.
For more information on
:the Storm-drain Marking Pro-
gram or to volunteer contact
the Sarasota County Call Cen-
ter at 861-5000 and ask for
Water Resources.
Flood insurance discount
continues
Sarasota County property
owners in high risk flood
zones will continue to receive
a 10-20 percent discount on
their annual flood insurance
premiums, following a recent
evaluation by the National
Flood Insurance Program


administered by the U.S.
Federal Emergency
Management Agency.
The FEMA program
rewards counties that impose
higher standards than those
set by the federal government
for flood damage protection
as they pertain to floodplains.
The county is currently
ranked among the top 6 per-
cent of communities nation-
wide that participate in the
voluntary program. Savings
to residents who purchased
flood insurance have been in
place 1997.
In 2005, Sarasota County
property owners realized sig-
nificant savings from the dis-
counts. For 38,741 flood
insurance policies county-
wide, overall savings totaled
$3.4 million.

System Program, contact the

OUR VIEW




Sarasota County is All-American in our book


or the second year in a row, Sarasota
County has been selected as a finalist
in the 2006 All-American City award
program.
In 2005 the county didn't make it into
the top 10 in what has become the nation's
most prestigious award for U.S. commun-
ities. But it was among the 30 finalists.
Sarasota lost out to Seward, Alaska;
Sedona, Ariz.; Canoga Park, Calif.; Florida
cities Lauderhill and Pompano Beach; Port
Huron, Mich.; Willmar, Minn.; Carrollton,
Mo.; Georgetown County, S.C.; Orangeburg
County, S.C.; and Winchester, Va., in the
contest, which is sponsored by the National
Civic League.
This year, Sarasota County is competing
with communities as small as Braselton,
Ga. (population 1,206), Hawarden, Iowa
(population 2,478), and Harrisburg, Ore.


(population 3,275); and as large as Miami
(population 362,470), Kansas City, Mo.
(population 441,269), and Columbus, Ohio
(population 728,432).
The competition permits neighbor-
hoods, towns, cities, counties and regions
to participate.
Some communities wait years to win.
For example, the Greater Buffalo, N.Y, area
(population 954,000) was a finalist five
times in 1994, 1995, 1996, and 2001 and
2002. It made it into the top 10 in 1996 and
2002.
This year, nearly 600 communities indi-
cated an interest in competing by down-
loading an application from the Internet.
More than 70 communities participated in
on-line briefings. Fifty told the National
Civil League they intended to apply, but
only 36 actually completed the application


process.
The number of finalists selected this year
was higher than usual. During the initial
screening it was decided that 34 of the 36
communities met the AAC criteria required
to compete in the Anaheim, Calif., finals on
June 10 and 11.
"The applications we received this year
were as strong as we have seen in some
time," Tom Flynn, chair of the AAC screening
committee, explained in a press release.
"We felt it was important that all those
who were deserving be sent to the next
level for review by the ACC jury."
This year's application focused on ad-
dressing three challenges:
Improving the lives of children. Sara-
sota County told of how home computers
were collected, refurbished and distributed
to students living in households that


didn't have them.
The need for a community-based adult
day respite program for care givers. That
program is provided here by two Sarasota
County groups A Special Time, and
Comfort Connection.
The county featured the Neighborhood
Environmental Stewardship Team to show
how volunteers increase awareness of,
and advocate for, native habitat and water-
sheds.
We congratulate Sarasota County for
reaching the finals for the second year in a
row. Win or lose, the county has made the
effort required to prove to the nation that
we live in a special place not just be-,
cause of our climate or location on Florida's.
Gulf Coast, but because Sarasota CountyV,;
people truly, care about others, who live
here. .i..amoe


A marina is



a good idea


The city of \'enice has
been slowly moving toward
finding uses for the vacant
land at the Venice Airport.
This week Sue Lahg, the
head of the Venice Neighbor-
hoods Coalition, came out
against a marina at the air-
port. In particular she came
out against seeking federal
funds for such a project,
using the logic that federal
funds should not go to an
affluent town such as ours.
While I certainly agree
that poor people need feder-
al funding, the last time I
checked a whole lot of rich
people and some not-so-rich
from our area gave money to
the federal government and
probably are hoping some of
it would get spent to gur
enjoyment rather than allof
it going to all the poor peo-
ple in metro areas up north
(sort of what happens to
our transportation tax dol-
lars).
Not only that, but money
gets put into different pots
for projects that stimulate
jobs, the economy, etc.
I have found Sue quite
intelligent and I have sided
with her on a couple of is-
sues, but it seems from a
distance that she is against
anything that possibly could
mean more traffic to the air-
port area. She lives not far
from the airport and that
seems to help define most
of her and her organization's
projects.
Probably her first and big-
gest pt peeve is noise abate-
ment and runway choices at
the airport. Although I don't
have much sympathy for
people who live near an air-
port that has been there a
lot longer than they have, I
do think where possible
noise abatement is a great
goal and to that end we
agree.
Another one I agreed with
her on to some degree was
the development of the
wastewater treatment plant
site, where some considera-
tion had been given to mak-
ing that a commercial enter-
tainment area.
To many, including Sue's
group and me, it seemed we


needed to protect that beach
area, one of the last that
would ever become available.
Her group didn't want much
parking (a way of discourag-
ing traffic), which really was
way beyond what city council
and I thought ought to hap-
pen. We need to provide for
the people who want to enjoy
beaches in the future.
The development of the
airport property is the latest
and most dramatic proposal
for that area, so it certainly
deserves a lot of close watch-
ing, such as Sue's group pro-
vides.
The city has gone about
this development process
quite methodically, getting
some proposals that all
missed the mark; thankfully,
it did not accept any.
One thing they realized in
the process is that a marina
really makes sense. Most
important, there are almost
no places for marinas to be
built in the area, and over
time it will- become impos-
sible to build any.
This is a way to meet the
needs of a boating communi-
ty that is losing slips. Likely
another ramp would be a part
of this also.
The city seeks to fill boat-
ing needs while finding
something at the airport
where noise is not likely to
be a hindrance. A marina
meets both objectives.
The revenue from a marina
or any development must go
toward the operation of the
airport. The more we can bill
and make, the more we can
put into the airport, which
needs& new runways and,
some day, maybe a tower.
On top of meeting more
boat needs, there likely
would be a restaurant along
the water, something in short
supply, and possibly a hotel
also a burning need. (Not
sure about the noise on that.)
I applaud council and the
city manager for trying to
get money to help develop
this site to meet the needs of
its citizens, who just happen
to be more wealthy than
many other areas. If they
weren't trying to get our fair
share, then in my opinion
they wouldn't be doing their
jobs right.

By's Crack: My goal in
life was always to work
for the Internal Revenue
Service not on salary;
rather, on commission.

I find it kind of humorous
that Sarasota County is one of

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



It's time to 'branch out' for safety


Editor:
I live in Lake Village at 1 W 7th St., Nokomis, and also am a
member of the board of directors. I and my neighbors have
a problem with branches hanging on the Comcast lines that
serve our park.
I have called a number of times and also e-mailed the
main office and they told me to go to the office in Venice. I
went to that office and told them of the situation. A couple
of weeks later a supervisor and six other gentlemen arrived and
said it was no problem that if they did fall and take
out the line, they would then repair it. We would like the
lines cleared before something happens, not wait.
I cannot believe that a company as large as Comcast
would want to wait for the line to come down before re-
pairing it. I thought it was always best to use preventive
maintenance.
If this line comes down in a wind storm or whatever, it
seems a shame that 275 customers would have to be with-
out cable while it gets repaired.
If we take the branches down and something happens
in the process, then Comcast will be right there to charge us.
This does not seem fair.

If you're illegal,
shut up and leave
Editor:
The question I have is:
Where do they think they get
the right to illegally come to
my country, and then protest
my enacting legislation to
make it more difficult for
them to criminally enter and
stay in my country?
I believe immigration offi-
cers should have been there
in Fort Myers checking for,
and deporting, the illegals.
The Illegals and the people
who hire them are the prob-


lem.

Amnesty is the

Editor:
We have illegal immigrants
in this country who have


children who were born

We would have to start a
draft for the Army to have
enough people to establish
security. Amnesty is the only
way to solve the problem.
And then:
We must close the bor-
ders immediately.
All temporary workers
must have a work card.
All immigrants, illegal or
not, must report to a govern-
ment office to receive a work
card and an identification
number.
They also will need a'
citizen form to fill out, to be-
come a citizen in an approx-
imate time, with certain stip-
ulations, such as learning to
speak basic English, etc.
All employers, with no
exceptions, should only be
permitted to hire people


with work cards. Failure to
do so would result in their
being punished with a fine
or time in prison.
All immigrants must
have immunity from prose-
cution when applying for

New Venice? What about Old Venice?


New Venice. I'm worried about the area of new Venice to
the east out in the Laurel area. Will we be building libraries
out there? A new city hall? Other services? Maybe with the

much property now that will be the hub out east. Time will
only tell. And the citizens, they need to have a say. Our Venice
is not the same as it used to be.

Unjust system. I would
like to make a comment
regarding the civil court
system in Sarasota County
and how it's perceived by
various attorneys and busi-
ness owners. It has been
suggested that a business
with a case against a con-
sumer will lose 80 percent of
their time despite the facts,
and most attorneys will dis-
courage going forward. It
hardly seems that any busi-
ness can expect justice here
in this county.
Taxasota County. In re-
gards to your question
about the impact fees being
raised, well, of course. Peo-
ple here love taxation and
fees. They passed the refer-
endum, so why not add it to
it, because this is the county
of Taxasota.
The biggest joke. In my
lifetime, I've heard some
really, really big jokes, but
the one in the March 22
Gondolier was the longest
joke I had ever read the
deal the Caspersens had to
accept. You could get a small
little shack on the island and
pay $1 million and they are
offered a measly $1.75 mil-
lion for 110 acres of land?
The biggest joke I ever heard.
And then give it to a develop-
er? Right adjacent to the Cas-
persen area is the land the
city got from the govern-
ment. Take the golf course
off of there. Make something
worthwhile; there are enough
golf courses in the county.
Do something with that land,
instead of stealing it from
somebody. .*

34 finalists for All-American
City. I wondered if they have
designs, like was done in
Jacksonville, to just make the
city and county one juris-
diction.
Anyway, we are in some
select company. There is
only one other city in the
state that has made the
finals: Miami. That certainly
makes me wonder what are
used as criteria. I wondered if
most drive-by shootings was
one of the categories.

Had great enjoyment
speaking to the St. Mark's
men's group last week. Tony
Marcin has that tough job in
every club of picking speak-
ers. We had a good time.
There were a lot of great
questions, especially from
Pastor Chris Gray.

Charles Warren will be
speaking on new urbanism at
the Venice Community
Center Friday night. This is
the second presentation on
this subject, to emphasize the
kind of enlightened growth
that John Nolen used to plan
Venice in the 1920s.
Manywould like to see that
same kind of planning going
on instead of the piecemeal
annexations happening in
what is called North Venice.

Today's ism:
In California, if they arrest
you for speeding they take
your license away. If you are


an illegal resident, they give
you a drivers license. (Isn't
there something wrong with

So, why is the children's
fountain running but no one
is allowed in it? The city is
taking the fountain and staff
through their paces. The
fountain water has to be just
right to be safe.
It will require staff to
check the pH and other
characteristics several times
a day, which they are doing
for a couple of weeks to
make sure they have it in bal-
ance. The health department
has to put its stamp on it. It
will soon be operational.

The city of Venice would
like to annex the Caspersen
Beach area owned by the
county. This, city officials
have indicated, would allow
them to have the police
force, which operates near
that area anyway, respons-
ible for the entire island.
Then the sheriff would not
have to patrol that area,
which is notorious for illegal
drinking and illicit behavior.
Secondarily, the city could
extend water and sewer ser-
vice to Caspersen, where
better restroom facilities are
sorely needed.
The county wants to keep
this valuable piece of proper-
ty out of the city, and seems
leery of Venice's motives for
wanting to do this so bad.
Both sides have agreed to

write in all of the necessary
guarantees to allay any fears
the other has.
To show that their motives
are genuine, why doesn't the
city enter into an interlocal
agreement with the county to
cover that part of the island
for public safety while the
county agrees at its cost to
put in the water and sewer
lines (which it has agreed to
do)? These kind of agree-
ments have been done in the
past when there were lots of
enclaves and it worked fine.
Another approach would
be to flip a coin for which
way it should be done.
Bottom line is to get it done.
Or the two sides can meet
next year and talk about it
making sense while nothing
gets done.

Prior approvals could weaken S.R. 776 plan


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


Planning to beautify the
State Road 776 corridor has
plenty of public support in
Charlotte and Sarasota coun-
ties, but reality may make
success a fleeting goal.
There is one flaw that
could create a roadblock to
avoiding a patchwork of
development.
"We have people who
already have zoning, and they
can do what they want,"
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Paul Mercier said.
Without some sort of site
and development initiatives,
he said, there is going to be a
"mishmash of development
up and down that road."
That would mean some
developments would be right
up to the road and can build
in any way they want.
Any new projects that
require rezoning would be
required to have setbacks and
would need to follow guide-
lines for their overall appear-


ance.
Sarasota County Adminis-
trator Jim Ley said Sarasota
County staff is already work-
ing on creating some sort of
incentive program.
Ley said the details of im-
plementation are still being
worked out.
The timing of the recent
discussion is crucial because
Sarasota and Charlotte coun-
ties are working to create a
proposed Lemon Bay/Mya-
kka Trail Scenic Highway.
A public open house last
week was hosted by the corri-
dor advocacy groups of both
Sarasota and Charlotte coun-
ties at the Tringali Center in
Englewood.
The event was intended to
showcase a proposed beauti-
fication process for S.R. 776
and the adjoining road sys-
tem.
The application has been
well received so far at
the Florida Department of
Transportation.
Here to there


The corridor starts at U.S.
41 in South Venice and endi
at U.S. 41 in Murdock. It also
includes an Eniglewood loop
down Old Englewood Road
and Dearbornr Street, and a'
Cape Haze loop, which en-
compasses all of county roads
775 and 771.
Charlotte County Planner
Martina Kuche said there
were 73 resources to help
support the scenic highway
designation. They include
everything from recreational,
archaeological and historical
landmarks to natural and cul-
tural landmarks.
Laura Kleiss Hoeft, director
of the Charlotte County Parks
Recreation and Cultural Re-
sources, said the scenic high-
way would work nicely with
the county's Blifeway Trails, a
designated waterway system
for canoe enthusiasts and
kayakers.
"The scenic highway ...
creates a package that you can
market. With the scenic high-
way, they can tie it all in with
the historical aiffd n'arural
2 s!" e t 1,-. "^ .- r


resources,' Kleiss Hoeft said.
One big benefit is money.
The designation opens up
more opportunities to get
federal and state funding,
said "Kathryn Ortega, co-
chairwoman of the Sarasota
advocacy group.
But in order, to get state
funding, the process must get
as much public support as
possible.
The two counties are cur-
rently working on determin-
ing the eligibility of the corri-
dor and will create a manage-
ment plan.
That plan would create
the development standards,
which is why Mercier is wor-
ried.
"This is getting away from
us," he said.
Once the eligibility is de-
termined, the two counties
will move into the designa-
tion phase. which leads to the
implementation of the plan.
The entire process could
take months or years.

STAFF REPORT

The Venice High softball
:eam, fresh from claiming the
district 12 championship, will
lay its regional opener at
iome 7 p.m. Tuesday against
St. Petersburg-Northeast.
Northeast (18-7) is the
District 11 runnerup. The
Lady Vikings dropped their
final to Osceola, 5-1. Osceola
(11-10) plays host to thbe
District 12 runnerup,
Lakewood Ranch.
Venice earned the District
12 title with a 5-3 victory over
Ranch. It was the third time
this season the Lady Indians
defeated the Lady Mustangs.
Osceola and Northeast split
their two games during the
regular season.
The District 11 final was a
close game with Osceola nurs-
ing a 2-1 lead until opening it
up with three runs in the sev-
enth inning.
"Their pitcher throws
strikes," said Venice assistant
coach Pete Dombroski. "They
hustle. They make the routine
plays. They're a sound team."
Venice (26-2), which has
won 13 straight games and is
ranked No. 1 in 5A, has been
led by a red-hot Maureen
Sandidge in the districts. She
had a walk-off home run in
the eighth inning to win the
semifinal over Port Charlotte.
Felicia Taylor has been the
Lady Indians' leading hitter
this season. The lefty swinger
hits No. 2 in the lineup.
Catcher Megan Watson has
also caught fire in the playoffs.
She has delivered key hits in
the district tournament.
Heather Laird has delivered
when counted on. '
'D1)efensively. Laird,' Nikki
Clark and Molly Brandow
have played well in the out-
field. Laird has particularly
made some eye-opening
stabs in right field.
Brittany Hipple has been a
rock at shortstop.
Pitching-wise, Venice is
blessed with depth. Heather
Boyts pitched the wins against
Port Charlotte and Ranch.
Laird came in to get the final
out against Ranch.
Boyts and Taylor suffered
ankle injuries against Ranch.
Their injuries will be evaluat-
ed Monday. The girls will prac-
tice Monday after school.
"We need to make the
defensive plays and hit the
ball," Dombroski said.
Helping Dombroski coach
the team this year have been
Larry Sandburg, John Koch
and the lovely Jessica
Plucchino.
If Venice wins Tuesday, it
will advance to the region

Indians enter district tourney on up note


By Claude Lewis
Sports Editor
The Venice High baseball
team closed out the regular
season on an upbeat note,
fighting for a 6-5 victory over
visiting Tampa Jesuit Friday
night.
The Indians finish the reg-
ular season with their heads
above water at 13-11. Jesuit,
ranked fourth in 4A, fell to 19-
5.
Venice begins district tour-
nament play Tuesday.
"It was nice to beat a
ranked team on senior night,"
Venice head coach Craig
Faulkner said. "We played
good baseball." ,
It looked like in might be
another long night for the
Indians Friday, as Jesuit ran
out to a 3-0 lead in the top of
the first inning. The Tigers hit
starter Josh Struble hard with
Sam Dyson slugging an RBI
triple and Rob Kuzdale a RBI
double of the wall.
Venice battled back to tie it
with three in the bottom of
the first. The Indians backed
that up with a two-spot in the
second to take a 5-3 lead.
The Venice plate standouts
included Jordan Wean, Brett
Holte, Jordan Lucas and
Jeremie Cook.
Wean, the solid third base-
man, gave the Indians a huge
lift in the bottom of the first
inning with his three-run
double with two outs. Later,
he would collect the game-
winning RBI, as he drew a
bases-loaded walk in the sixth


inning to break a 5-5 tie.
Holte, the Indians' jack-of-
all-trades, had three hits all
line singles. His first hit fueled
the first inning rally. Holte's
shot off the shortstop's glove
drove in a run to make it 5-3
in the second. He also had a
hit in the sixth inning rally.
Lucas rocked a couple of
doubles and he scored the
winning run in the sixth.
Cook had a couple of hits
and scored twice.
Pitching-wise, Struble
started and went 2 2/3
innings. Ryan Anderson came
on and threw 2 1/3 innings of
solid relief. Brett Holte was
next, throwing an inning and
picking up the mound win.
Jason Kaufman was called
upon to quell a seventh-
inning Tiger uprising. Holte
walked the leadoff batter and
Faulkner called on the right-
handed Kaufman. A sacrifice
moved the runner to second
and a passed ball put the
tying run on third. Kaufman
responded by getting the final
two outs via strikeout.
The Indians had a chance
to pad their lead in the fifth
but left the bases loaded.
Jesuit rallied for a pair of runs
in the top of the sixth to tie the
game at 5.
Being the final regular sea-
son home game, the five
seniors on this year's squad
were honored before the
game. They included Joe
Salomone, Travis Weather-
holt, Dan Martini, Holte and
Cook.


Venice is seeded fourth in
the eight team Class 5A
District 12 Tournament,
which is being played at G.T.
Bray Park in Bradenton. The
Indians will open play at 4
p.m. Tuesday against fifth-
seed Lakewood Ranch.
Venice defeated the Ranch
twice during the regular sea-
son.
If the Indians win, they will
come back at 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday against the win-
ner of Monday's Manatee vs.
Southeast game.
The championship game
is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

Three VHS winners at district track and field meet


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


In team points, the Venice
High boys and girls track and
field teams weren't in the mix
up front at Friday's Class 4A
District 7 Meet at Riverview.
The Indian teams are still
lacking depth to compete
with powerhouses.
But there were some note-
worthy individual perfor-
mances laid down by VHS
athletes in the baking heat of
the Ram Bowl.
The Venice boys had two
winners. Kyle Brunette won
the 3200 meter run and Mike
Kimson was victorious in the
discus.
The Lady Indians had one
first-place finish with Emily
Korszen capturing the girls
pole vault competition.
The top four finishers in
each of the 17 events advance
to this coming Thursday's
regional meet at Tampa-
Gaither. Venice will be send-
ing six boys and 12 girls.
Brunette captured the
3200, cracking the 10-minute
barrier with a clocking of 9:58.
Kimson threw the discus 145
feet.
Brunette also qualified for
regional in the 1600 with a
third-place finish. His 4:38
was seven ticks off the win-
ning time.
Jake Scully is third Indian
to qualify for regionals, as he
ran a 2:08 in the 800.
The boys 4 by 800 team


placed third.
In boys team points, Venice
was fifth out of six schools
competing. Cape Coral was
the winner with Riverview
second.
The VHS girls finished
fourth in team points.
Riverview was first and North
Fort Myers was second.
The top individual girls
effort came from Emily
Korszen, who won the pole
vault competition by skying 8
feet. Courtney Tomlin was
second in that event with a 7-
6.
Emily's older sister -
Stephanie was second in
the 3200 in 12:18.
There were three thirds -
Chelsea Rose in the 100 hur-
dles (17.58), Toni Cristiani in
the discus (106-4) and Sam
Seeley in the shot put (34-4).
Cristiani was fourth in the
shot put with a toss of 32-10.
The Lady Indians also
qualified two relays. The 4 by
800 squad of Stephanie
Korszen, Katie Adams, Genna
Jones and Rose was second to
Riverview. The 4 by 400 relay
team of Jessica Konecnic,
Amberose Courville, Ariel
Young and Stephanie Korszen
was fourth.
Venice girls coach Brenda
Clark said she had a number
of girls just miss out on quali-
fying for region with fifth-
place finishes.
"We have a lot of young
girls but they're all working
hard," she said.

Multiagency task force runs hunter to ground


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sec-
ond in a two-part series.

BY CHRISTY ARNOLD
STAFF WRITER

Daniel 0. Conahan Jr. lived
out his secret, violent, sexual
fantasies beneath the bright
Florida sunshine, under the
green canopies of palms and
pines, on the floors of isolated
forests where the screams of
his prey went unheard.:
He had spent more than a
decade alongside HIV-infect-,
ed friends in Chicago's gay
community, where he sur-
vived a violent encounter
with a homicidal homo-
phobe, before moving into his
parents' Punta Gorda Isles
condo in early 1993..
The transition into the
politically conservative com-
munity seemed fluid.
Conahan attended Char-
lotte Technical Center (then
Charlotte Vo-Tech) between
1994-1995, and earned his
licensed practical nurse certi-
fication.
The friendly, balding man
in his early 40s socialized with
fellow students.
He took a job at Charlotte
Regional Medical Center after
graduation, leading a seem-
ingly normal life alongside
the snowbirds and retirees on
Bal Harbor Boulevard.
That was Conahan the
son, the brother, the neighbor
and the nurse sometimes
called "Danny." ,
Meet the other Conahan-
the hunter. i,
"Why doh'tyou die?".
Conahan said this as he
tried to strangle a man in the
woods, according to court
testimony: "Make my job eas-
ier."
Hunting the hunter
By April 18, 1996, detec-
tives from the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforce-
ment, Charlotte County Sher-
iff's Office, North Port Police
Department and the State
Attorney's Office and other
surrounding law enforce-
ment agencies united to
investigate the murders of
five white men whose naked
bodies were found in a wood-
ed area in northern Charlotte
County and North Port
between 1994 and 1996.
"The only thing that sepa-
rates these crimes seems to
be the county line," said then-
Charlotte County Sheriff
Richard Worch.
The task force set up shop,
at the Port Charlotte Town
Center mall. Investigators
used an empty store as an
office.
Shoppers walked by the
vacant store's blocked win-
dows concealing gruesome
photographs of the murders.
The murders didn't out-
rage the community the same
way the proposed costly
sewer expansion did at the
time. The victims weren't chil-
dren, the elderly or produc-
tive members of society.
They willingly, though
unknowingly, walked to their,
deaths.
Investigators knew early
on the victims shared similar
lifestyles: drugs, alcohol, day-
laborer jobs.
They were "people who
generally wouldn't be miss-
ed," said Charlotte County
Sheriff's Lt. Rick Hobbs, the
case agent assigned to inves-
tigate the murders.
Potential victims, those liv-


ing on the streets or willing to
earn easy cash, became con-
cerned.
"Do you have some mass
murderer running around
preying on the citizens out
here? I don't think there's
cause for alarm in that way,"
said Charlotte County Sheriff
John Davenport, then a col-
onel and undersheriff, almost
two months after the discov-
eries of the fourth and fifth
bodies.
"But we do not have that
subject in custody that we
know of, so there is cause for
concern."
The bodies brought to light
a darker side of Charlotte
County.
Unbeknownst to most,
men gathered at parks and
nature trails for quick, imper-
sonal sex.
"It was an eye-opener to
learn that apparently in the
mid-'90s, there was a great
deal of casual sex going on in
Charlotte County," said Con-
ahan's defense attorney for
the trial, Paul Sullivan. "I
think most of us didn't know
about it."
Conahan was among
them.
. Detectives began ques-
tioning homeless men and
transients in the area, asking
them if they knew any infor-
mation about the murders.
"Officers on the street,
before we identified Cona-
han, got a description of
Conahan from some of the
homeless guys on the street,"
Hobbs said.
They received a descrip-
tion of a car driven by a man
patrolling the area, offering
rides and money. He went by
the name Dan.
Then came a break.
David Payton, an inmate in
Glades County, told a prison
official on May 8, 1996, that
he knewwho was committing
the murders in Charlotte and
Sarasota counties.
Payton agreedL- to go. int, -
the woods off Zemel Road in
southern Charlotte County
with Conahan on Nlarch 5,
1995. Payton was to pose for
photographs in exchange for
money.
The photo shoot stalled,
however, when the two came
across other people in the
woods. Conahan grew irate.
Payton grew scared. He stole
Conahan's car and left the
area. Conahan's father later
reported the car had been
stolen and Payton was arrest-
ed.
"That's how we got
Conahan's name, where he
lived and everything else,"
Hobbs said.
Watching the hunter
Within five days, the task
force began surveillance on
Conahan.
"That was the most exten-
sive one I've ever been in-
volved in," Charlotte County
Sheriff's Capt. Mike Gandy,
who supervised day-to-day
operations of the task force,
said of the operation. "The
surveillance was intense
because we knew for one
minute we could not let him
out of our sight."
Officials kept 24-hour sur-
veillance on Conahan. They
placed cameras around his
condo and parking lot. They
rented cars so they could fol-
low him without detection.
They even rented a condo
across the canal from Con-
ahan's place.

"We knew the importance
of keeping the surveillance,"
he said. "We were able to pull
it off."
They watched Conahan
drive up and down U.S. 41.
They watched him go from
one wooded area to another.
"It appears to me that he
was on a mission," Gandy
said. "It was a hunt."r
They saw Conahan some-
times leave his house with a
blue bag, which they later
determined was his murder
kit, containing rope, a tarp,
pliers, a camera and film. He
was also known to carry a
hacksaw and even a chain-
saw.
He carried the bag with
him "only when he was going
to pick up men," Hobbs said.
They saw Conahan go to
Alligator Dam a place
known for casual gay sex -
and meet a man. Then, they
saw the two leave, with the
man following Conahan in
another car. The two drove to
another wooded area.
"We had to figure out a way
to intervene without tipping
him off," Gandy said.
Rather than expose the
intensive surveillance opera-
tion, they chose to send a
marked patrol car to the
scene. The deputy responded
and questioned the two
about their activities just
like a deputy would for any
other suspicious behavior.
"Us watching him proba-
bly saved his life," said Gandy,
who has been in law enforce-.
ment for nearly 30 years.
The investigation and sur-
veillance included placing
undercover officers on the
streets as bait. Sure enough,
Conahan approached two of
them. He offered the officers
money to perform sexual acts
or pose for photographs.
"Some of. the pictures are
on the kinky side, so I don't
know if you'd be into it,"
Conahan said to undercover
-"deteiiye Ray Wier after offer-
ing him money to pose for
photographs. "We'll' do strip-
ping, some poses nude and a
progressive bondage scene."
Closing in
Investigators returned to
crime scenes, searching for
more information. They also
conducted a large search near
Toledo Blade Elementary
School with the help of offi-
cers from several agencies.
That's when a Fort Myers
Police detective nientiqned a
case involving a man being
strangled in the woods.
"My guy lived," the detec-
tive said.
"I said, 'What?' Hobbs
replied.
The Fort Myers Police
Department had retained
photographs of the strangula-
tion injuries around Stanley
Burden's neck.
"Oh my God. I can't believe
what we have," Hobbs said.
"That piqued our interest,"
Gandy said.
.Officials tracked Burden to
an Ohio prison. Burden pro-
vided a statement. He also
quickly and confidently iden-








4


tified Conahan in a photo
lineup, Hobbs said.
Detectives eventually nail-
ed Conahan when lab tests
confirmed a paint chip found
on Montgomery's body
matched Conahanrs car.
Investigators searched
Conahan's condo and vehi-
cles on May 31, 1996, while
Gandy interviewed him at the
Holiday Inn (now the Best
Western Waterfront).
"I was surprised he talked
to me, but he did," Gandy
said. "He did not, of course,
confess to the crimes."
Investigators found all the
contents of the murder kit.
They also found a brand-new
hacksaw in a toolbox. Con-
ahan's father told detectives
"he had an old hacksaw and
the old hacksaw was miss-
ing," state court documents.
They also had receipts
showing numerous occasions
on which Conahan pur-
chased new rope, tarps,
knives and other items.
Detecdves asked Conahan
to go to the State Attorney's
Office for further questioning
the next day. They even let
him drive his own car.
"The only thing he brought
with him was car keys, several
packs of cigarettes and a
lighter," Hobbs said. "I think
he knew he was going to jail."
Conahan requested an
attorney when 'they began
asking him questions.
"Mr. Conahan, you're un-
der arrest," Hobbs told him.
Officials first charged
Conahan with attempted
murder, kidnapping and sex-
ual battery for the assault on
Burden in Lee County. A
grand jury convened and
indicted Conahan on murder,
rape and kidnapping charges
for the April 16, 1996, death of
Richard Montgomery.
"I have fantasized about
bondage," Conahan testified
during the trial. "But that is
not my only fantasy... I want
to be crystal clear here today.
I did not know nor kill Mr.
Montgomery."
Circuit Judge William
Blackwell convicted Conahan
and sentenced him to death.
Conahan remains on
death row at Union Cor-
rectional Institution in Raif-
ord, Fla., while he continues
appealing his case. Conahan
maintains his innocence.
"At first, I could see how
they thought it was me,"
Conahan said years ago dur-
ing an interview with the Sun
papers. "They must have
thought no one would care
because I'm gay, because my
parents were old and because
I was driving around and
offering people money to
pose nude."
Conahan, 51, stated in an
April 5 letter that he has not
granted a media interview
since January 2000.
Between Conahan's arrest
and trial, the body of a sixth
murdered white man sur-
faced in May 1997.
Investigators identified the
remains found off Quesada
Avenue in Port Charlotte as
Billy Patten the 24-year-old

The ghost storyteller: A dinosaur



among lemmings?


Walpurgis Nacht is

another holiday for ghost

storytellers .. or not


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


One week from today,
April 30, witches and their
cohorts will have one last
winter fling.
Or not ...
The night of April 30 is the
night of Walpurgis, a
Christian festival created to
drive off the evil spirits.
According to legend, on
Walpurisg Nacht, the witches
gather on the Brocken, the
highest peak in Germany's
Harz Mountains.,
The story' was immortal-.
ized in Goethe's "Faust," in
which Mephistopheles takes
Faust to the Brocken to revel
with the witches. The name
Walpurgis was derived from
theiridame fWalburga, the
abbess of Heidenheim who
became a Catholic saint and
was known as the protec-
toress against witchcraft and
sorcery.
In olden days,,prayers
were offered, bells were
tolled and blessed sprigs of
herbs and flowers were left in
homes and barns.
The latter custom is likely
to have spawned the May ,;


Day tradition of leaving May
baskets on door handles.
As for Walpurgis night
itself, noise was considered
the best remedy so, come
sunset, all the boys and men
in town would head out to
make noise, using whatever
they had, from sticks to pis-
tols.
In Bavaria, the night is
called freinacht or
Drudennacht and the young
people play tricks, much as
American youth do on that
other hallowed eve known as
Halloween.
In Luxembourg, bells toll,
prayers are said and palm
leaves are left in homes and
barns.
In the south Harz region
where it all began, young
boys ride stick horses and
chase the Hexen from the
fields.
In Reading, Pa., on
Walpargis Nacht 2006,
Charles Adams will tell ghost
stories, although not at one
ofthe schools.
As you think about how or
even whether you will cele-
brate Walpurgis Nacht next
Saturday evening, try not to
be haunted by Adams' tale.

the thousands of live "perfor-
mances" I have given. I have
reached hundreds of thou-
sands more through the
printed word in the more
than two dozen ghost story
books I have written. Untold
millions more have heard my
tales on networks such as
A&E, The Travel Channel, The
History Channel and on radio
and TV stations around the
world.
I like to tell ghost stories.
I like to scare people. Any
meeting room, library, hall,
restaurant or stage becomes
my campfire around which I
spin my eerie yams. I don my
top hat, cape and walking
stick and try my best to trans-
port my audience into anoth-
er era and into another plane.
My intent is to continue the
time-honored art of live story-
telling. Ghost storytelling.
As that costumed, live,
ghost storyteller, I may be an
endangered species. Endan-
gered by ignorance.
Let me tell you a story
about ghost storytelling.
At the start of the last
school year, I received a call
from the reading specialist of
an elementary school in the
Reading, Pa., suburbs. Would I
tell ghost stories to her fifth-
and sixth-graders the Friday
before Halloween?
"Sure I would," I told her.
"No charge either," I added. I
love to tell ghost stories to 10-
to 12-year olds. I love to tweak


What the quintessential storyteller wears to work.


their imaginations, tease their
sensitivities and take them to
the threshold of their fears.
I've done it 100 times may-
be 200. It's Halloween, after
all! Hasn't every generation
reveled in the tradition of
ghost stories at that time of
year?
Of course they have. But,
that might be grinding to a
gruesome halt.
The Tuesday before Hallo-
ween, I received a communi-
cation from the principal of
the school, who asked me to
provide her with an outline of
my talk.
She was specifically con-
cerned that I might get this
- mention "death" when I


tell my ghost stories.
After pondering all of those
letters after the educator's
name and wondering wheth-
er any of that education
might have touched on the
reality that the prerequisite of
being a ghost most certainly
involves "death," I composed
myself and composed a re-
sponse.
I told her that I tell ghost
stories. I didn't feel it required
my explanation, justification
or qualification. I had told
many ghost stories to many
children of that age group in
many schools over many
years.
And after all, it was Hallo-
ween.


Fans gather after a storytelling session as Charles J. Adams III
signs copies of his books.


Or, was it?
Not in that school district.
The Wednesday before
Halloween I learned that the
district was not allowing its
children to dress in costumes.
No Halloween parties or pa-
rades. No Halloween decora-
tions. The word Halloween
was not to be murmured.
In that district, Halloween
was morphed into a "Fall
Festival."
That was all I needed to
hear.
No Halloween? No me.
With sincere regrets for the
children, I contacted the
reading specialist who invited
me to speak and I uninvited
myself.
Your school is having a
"Fall Festival" instead of
Halloween.
invitee someone to tell corn
stalk, hay bale and pumpkin
stories instead of ghost sto-
ries.
In my cape and top hat
and with my scary little sto-
ries, I would be nothing more
than a dinosaur trudging
among lemmings.
I had two choices of
course. The gentle one would
have been to buckle to the
principal, tailor my tales and
honor my agreement to
speak.
Instead, I stood my ground
and refused to dance to that
school's tune of timidity.
Some call all of this "Po-


litical correctness run
amuck." Very well. I'll accept
that, but I'm sick of it. It's not
just a PC issue. As far as I'm
concerned, it digs deeper
beyond politics and into the

Daffodils can be grown in Florida ...

... or so they say in Sara L.
Van Beck's article in the
April/May edition of Florida
Gardener magazine. I almost
jumped for joy! Most of us
re-planted Florida gardeners
would give our eyeteeth for
the chance to grow those
wonderful spring beauties.
Ever since moving here
several years ago, I've always
bought tulips, hyacinths and
daffodils at Easter time in
pots. They seem to last only
about 4-5 days, at the very
most. The secret is to keep
the leaves as green as possi-
ble, then, because I can't
bear throwing away a living
plant, I save the bulbs for
our children up north to
plant in their gardens. I've
always seemed to be much
more excited about taking
them up than they have been
in receiving them, but have
secretly planted a few of these
bulbs much to their surprise
the next spring. This seems to
be the answer to a long-
awaited special treat. The

Henry the Heron


Henry got entangled in fishing line, the
hook deeply embedded in his left leg.


Releasing Henry is Julie Jaquette, volun-
teer with the Wildlife Center of Venice.


Henry limped with his injured leg, but had to be coaxed with a hot dog into his rescuer's
garage.


STORY AND PHOTOS BY BOBBI AUSTIN

Henry is a big beautiful blue
Heron that lives next to Lemon Bay
in Englewood. When the snow-
birds come to Florida, Henry likes
to hang out with them and per-
haps beg a bait fish or two.
"Well, this year Henry got too
close and got snagged in a fishing
line with the hook deeply embed-
ded in his left leg. For nearly two
weeks Henry limped around, but
no one could get close enough to
catch him. The Wildlife Center of
Venice was contacted. They said
they would come to Englewood if
someone could catch Henry so he
would be around when they got
there.
Henry was lured into my garage
with some sweet talk and a piece of
hot dog. Wildlife Center was con-
tacted again and was surprised he
was caught so fast. They didn't real-
ize Henry is very trusting and is a
sucker for a handout. Julie Ja-
quette, a volunteer from the Wild-
life Center, and I wrapped Henry in
a beach towel and loaded him into
the dog carrier in the back of her
van.
Within one week, I received a
call from the Wildlife Center in
Venice and was told Henry was
healed and was coming back to
Lemon Bay to be released. Again
Julie showed up with Henry peer-
ing out of the dog crate, happy to
be home again. When the door was
opened he strutted out with not so
much as a limp.
Henry and all the neighbors
would like to thank the Wildlife
Center of Venice.

Good Friday was bad


for Bridget the poodle.

Bridget Bardot is a small
poodle mix abandoned in a
box on Route 41. She was left
with a note that read, "If you
hit this box, please bury her,
as I can't afford to put her to
sleep as she is deaf."
Pat and Ron Thurston
found the little poodle and
took her home until a perma-
nent home could be found for
the dog. She escaped on
Good Friday through a screen
on their porch, and, because
she is deaf, the couple have
been unable to locate her.
Bridget was last seen on
Shamrock Drive near Sham-
rock Park, between Baffin
Road and the park.
The Thurstons had Bridget
for only three weeks before
her disappearance, so they
did not have any photos of

Humane Society of Sarasota County -


opens free-roaming cat room


STAFF REPORT

The Humane Society of
Sarasota County has opened
a free-roaming cat room,
which allows adoptable cats
to mingle freely with' each
other and potential adopters.
"Even though we have the
best, most spacious and re-
laxing cat kennels I know of
for an animal shelter, seeing
those cats hopping ip on
window ledges to stare at the
squirrels and twining in and
out of the cat furniture was a
wonderful sight," said HSSC
Executive Director Deborah
Robbins Millman. "Staff,
board members, volunteers
and generous donors worked
together to make this room a
reality."
Funding for the room -
named Woodie's Wing was
provided by Phyllis and Nor-
man Siskel, in memory of
their beloved cat, Woodie.
Additional money for cat fur-
niture and renovations to
make the room free-roaming
was provided by Robert and
Hope Black. One dozen cats
are housed in the room.
"We try to do all we can to


this area's abandoned pets.
The nonprofit corporation
relies on community funding
to pursue its mission of pro-
moting responsible pet own-
ership and securing perma-
nent homes for all adoptable
animals. HSSC provides
abandoned pets with com-
passionate care and shelter,
offers pet adoptions,
humane education, afford-
able spay/neuter services
and programs for children,
seniors and those with spe-
cial needs.


make our shelter pets' stay
with us as pleasant as possi-
ble," Millman said. "We are
hoping this new room will
make the cat8 more comfort-
able and stress-free. It will
also give adopters a chance
to better interact with the
cats."
To see Woodie's Wing- as
well as HSSC's more than 200
adoptable dogs, cats, kittens
and puppies visit the shel-
ter at 2331 15th St., Sarasota.

Medicare Part D wh


JIM MILLER
GUEST COLUMNIST


Dear Savvy Senior,
I need to help my mother fig-
ure out the Medicare prescrip-
tion drug coverage before the
deadline, but I don't understand
it myself. How can we know if
she really needs a plan and if so,
how do we choose the right
one? Procrastinating Pam
Dear Pam,
For Medicare beneficia-
ries, the May 15 enrollment
deadline for choosing a Part
D prescription drug plan is
rapidly approaching (unless
Congress extends it at the last
minute) but who really
needs it? Here are some tips
that may help you decide.
Who needs it
While all Medicare benefi-
ciaries are eligible for drug
coverage, who actually needs
a Part D plan? The answer
depends on how you pay for
medicine now, You need a
Medicare drug plan if you
have:
Little or no coverage: If
you spend more than $750 a
year on medications, you
need a drug plan. But, if
you're healthy and spend less
than $750, you may still want
to enroll in a (low-premium,
zero-deductible) plan to pro-
vide drug coverage if your '
health deteriorates and to


avoid the late enrollment
penalty, which is a 1 percent
premium increase each
month you delay.
Limited income: If your
monthly income is less than
$1,225 ($1,650 for couples),
you need to enroll in a Part D
plan, and you also need to
contact Social Security (800-
772-1213) to see if you quali-
fy for the Medicare "extra
help" assistance.
Medigap insurance: If
you have a Medigap (supple-
mental insurance) policy that
covers drugs, drop the drug
coverage portion and get a
Part D plan because the cov-
erage is better.
Who doesn't need it
If you fall into any of these
categories, you either don't
need Part D, or don't need to
worry about enrolling in one.
Employer coverage: If
you already have drug cover-
age through a former
employer or union, that's as
good as or better than
Medicare's you don't need
Part D. You should have
received a letter indicating
whether the coverage is cred-
itable. If you can't remember
receiving a letter, contact the
company's human resources
department. (Note: If the
company decides later to
reduce or drop their coverage
you can enroll in a Part D
plan at that time without
penalty).
Government benefits: If
you have drug coverage from
Veterans Affairs, the Federal
Employees Health System or
TriCare, your drug coverage
is probably better than Med-
icare's drug plan so you don't
need Part D.
Medicare AdvanTrig If
you have Medicare through a


io needs it?

managed care plan like an
HMO or PPO stay there.
Your medicine is already cov-
ered.
Medicaid: If you're on
Medicare and Medicaid or
Supplemental Security
Income (SSI) you're already
been enrolled in a Part D
plan.
Choosing a plan
If you think your mom
would benefit by having a
Medicare drug plan, here are
some steps that can help you
select a plan to meet her
needs.
Gather information: Start
by making a list of the drugs
your mom takes along with
the dosages and costs. Your
mother's pharmacy should
be able to print you a copy of
this information. You'll also
need your mom's Medicare
number, birth date, zip code.
preferred pharmacies and
current (if any) drug cover-
age.
Start shopping: Once you
get organized, go to
medicare.gov and click on
Compare Medicare
Prescription Drug Plans.
From.there you plug in your
mom's information and get a
personalized search that will
break down and compare the
plan's costs, coverage, list of
preferred pharmacies and
more. If you're not Web savvy,
you can call (800)
MEDICARE and they'll do
the comparing for you over
the phone.
Double check Be sure
the plan you choose covers
all the drugs and dosages
your mother takes. If it does-
n't, call her doctor to see if
there's an alternative medica-

Q. For the past 5 years I
have protected myself from
loud noises yet my hearing
continues to decline. Can
you suggest anything which
will reduce or stop my
continued hearing loss?
A. Most causes of hearing
loss are never known.
Medications and diseases
associated with small vessel
disease are the major
concerns. Arthritis, diabetes,
and heart disease are all
associated with a higher
incidence of hearing loss.
Smoking, which creates free
radicals,, has been associated
with increasing the
probability of hearing loss.
Anti-oxidants, such as
vitamin E have been
associated with the
prevention of noise induced
hearing loss. Unfortunately,
even if you live healthy and
take all precautions possible,
the majority of us will slowly
develop hearing loss. The
inner ear hair cells do not
replace themselves and once
they are lost, their function
cannot be recovered. This is
why an annual hearing
examination by a certified
Audiologist should be part of
every persons health plan.
Call the Audiologist at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Center at 492-4327
today to schedule your
audiologic assessment.

American Orient Express has a new name


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


The rumors we heard
aboard the American Orient
Express train last month are
true.
That stunning gold mono-
gram is soon to be history as
the luxury train line sheds its
name in favor of one the
owner believes better ex-
presses its product deluxe
vintage train trips.
GrandLuxe Rail Journeys is
the new name, chosen to
communicate to everyone
what anyone who has trav-
eled on the AOE line knows -
the train company's trips are
grand and they most certainly
are deluxe.
With amenities by Aveda,
luxury bathrobes bearing the
company crest and fully
restored deluxe coaches, din-
ing cars and sleeper cars, AOE
has offered its customers the
ability to step back in time to
the Golden Age of American
train travel, accommodating
us in 1950-era cars.
Two of the best travel expe-
riences of my life were AOE
trips, one across Canada from
Vapcouver, to Montreal three.
summers ago and the most
r .pent, from Savannah to
Nlas.hington, D.C., last month.
Fortminthe camaraderie that
developed between passen-
gers on each of those trips to,
the four-star service and
meals, each trip was one to
log into the travel memoryfor
future savoring.
It was on that recent trip


The American Orient Express train has undergone a name change to GrandLuxe Rail Journeys.
How the trains will be repainted is yet to be determined.


that the rumors of the name
change surfaced. Ever since
my first trip I was asked if the
company was related to the
Venice-Simplon Orient Ex-
press on which I traveled
some years ago from Verona,
Italy, to London, via the
Chunnel. It is noiit the same
company despite the similar
name.
Nor was AOErelated in any
way to the Australian Orient
Express train on which I was
invited to travel four years ago
when I was in Australia and it


was making its first run
between Sydney and Cairns,
with a stop in Brisbane while
the train wheel carriage was
changed out for the different
gauge tracks.
All these trains offer deluxe
service and food. Each has a
different owner.
While the new name
would not have been 'my
choice, the main thing is that
the journeys, the service and
personnel will remain the
same..
And all passengers that


have already booked tours
will also be unaffected by this
change.
GrandLuxe Rail Journeys
will continue to operate all
itineraries advertised with
departures through Octobei
2006. Beginning Oct. 29, an
exciting new itinerary, Grand-
Luxe Mexico, will debut. This
nine-day journey from El
Paso, Texas, to Mexico City
has dates scheduled through
April 2007.

schedules can be found -on

killed and 2,581 others in-
jured in "inter-provincial" bus
accidents between July 2004
and June 2005, according to
Peru's Center for Investigation,
of Overland Transport.
Experts say a major cause
of the high number of acci-
dents is the recklessness of
the drivers.
Alex Russell recalled telling
a Canadian friend sitting next
to him "about how fast these
buses go and how it should
actually be a 12-hour trip but
it's only an 8-hour trip."
"The first 20 minutes of the
trip, we're flying down a dirt
road going about 75 or 80
miles per hour," he said. "I
opened the window to show
my friend Mark, and we were
both wide-eyed, going like,
'Wow!'"
Alex Russell said he was
briefly knocked unconscious
but was otherwise not hurt in
the accident. His friend suf-
fered a deep gash on his eye-
brow.
Peru's estimated 400 "bus-
trucks," which account for
about 10 percent of the coun-
try's 3,770 buses, appear new
but are structurally unsound
and account for a third of the
fatalities, said Lino de la
Barrera, vice president of the
transport center.
The bus trucks have inade-
quate brake systems and are
four times more likely to
cause deaths than Peru's nor-
mal buses, which tend to be
10 to 15 years old and run--
down, he said.
"The issue is strictly eco-
nomic. To buy an old truck

chassis and build this bus can
cost you $35,000 to $50,000,"
de la Barrera said. "A bus with
these characteristics bought
new from the factory will cost
you $250,000."
Peru outlawed bus-trucks
in 2002, but companies used a
loophole to keep putting
them on the roads.
Peru's Transportation Min-
istry in February announced a
crackdown on the vehicles,
and about a dozen of the ille-
gal buses were decommis-
sioned. Peru's constitutional
Tribunal then struck down a
challenge from the bus-truck
operators, saying public safe-
ty takes precedence over any
lost business.
But bus-truck owners, a
powerful lobby, have per-
suaded a congressional com-
mission to debate proposals
that would allow bus-trucks
to be refurbished and contin-
ue circulating for up to 15
more years.
Meanwhile, the bus-trucks
keep rolling, and crashing.

Lino de la Barrera, vice

JUNE CASAGRANDE



You're on a stage with
another person you hardly
know, a guy 10 years younger
than you who's obsessed with
getting something called a
"SAG card." It's pitch black.
.Azoul 100".p1op-le'&re ap-
"plauiding, but the sound is
drowned out by the deafening
thud of your own heart.
"Ice cream shop." That's all
you've got. Arid when the
lights come up in about one
second, you and Captain Sag
Card will be expected to daz-
zle the socks off of all 100 peo-
ple with nothing more to go
on than this flimsy sugges-
tion.
To a lot of people, the idea
of performing improve is terri-
fying. But me, I'm more afraid
of having to do readings next
week in San Francisco and
Seattle on my book tour. The
reason: In improve, everyone
knows you're full of baloney.
Your only job is to "sell it," put
on a convincing bluff. It's OK
that you don't know all 31 fla-
vors. When you offer Captain
Sag Card a scoop of rum raisin
wasabe swirl, people are


going to-laugh.
If only grammar were so
easy to bluff your way
through, right?
Well, in one area it kind of
is.
Consider the sentence:
"The faculty is an integral
part of our success." Now
consider the sentence, "The
faculty were applauding wild-
ly for the speaker."
Asking which one is wrong
is like asking whether Captain
Sag Card would have pre-
ferred the butter pecan pep-
peroni ripple. It's immaterial.
Welcome to the wonderful
world of "collective nouns."
Collective nouns, some-
times also categorized with
'..:"'m s' houns." are words like
couplele" "media," "family,"
"group," "team" and "faculty"
that are singular in form
despite the fact that they refer
to multiple individuals or
things. And if you've always
assumed that there is a single
correct way to treat these
words, think again. Because
in this crazy corner of the
grammar world, nothing is
really right, but the only true

"The main consideration

consistency in the use of a
singular or plural verb," writes
Bryan Garner in the "Garner's
Modern American Usage"
entry on collective nouns. "If,
in the beginning of an essay,
the phrasing is 'the faculty

In other words, as they say
in improve, all that matters is
"commitment" to the bit.
How do you know which
one to use in the first place?
.Well, there's no rule but your
best judgment. If you're
emphasizing individual
members of the faculty, then
treat it as a plural. "The facul-
ty were applauding." But if
you're emphasizing a single
unit, treat it as a singular:
"The faculty is an integral part
of our success."
And if you find yourself in a
situation in which you began
one way but want to go the
other, just rework the sen-
tence. "The faculty is an inte-
gril..pa'tof'our success. The
faculty members are gathered
in the auditorium."
Of course, collective nouns
aren't quite as easy as this
makes them sound.
"Media" is a collective that
has given a lot of people a lot
of trouble. Its most basic
meaning is the plural of
"medium," but in recent years
there's no denying that it has
developed a secondary
meaning as a singular entity.
Sometimes it's better to
treat it as the plural: "The
media are gathered outside."
But other times it's- fine to
treat it as a singular, "The
media is biased." The only
guideline is your own judg-
ment.

know what I'm talking about?

'Curiosity Killed the Cat


Sitter' will appeal to locals


BYTERRI SCHLICHENMEYER I
GUEST COLUMNIST


Aside from the obvious,
there is one big difference
between having small human
children and having small
four-footed children: You can
leave your pets home alone
while you go to work and you
won't get it trouble doing it.
You can't, however, leave
them at home alone when
you go on vacation. You'll
need some sort of sitter. That's
where Dixie Hemingway
steps in, and in the new novel
"Curiosity Killed the Cat
Sitter" by Blaize Clement,
kitty-sitting could have some
hair-raising aspects.
A few years ago, when
Dixie Hemingway (no relation
to you-know-who) lost her
husband and daughter in a
car accident, she was told that
she wasn't trustworthy as a
police officer any more. Up
until then, Dixie worked in
the Sarasota Police force, but
now, she's taking care of a dif-
ferent sort of Sarasota resi-
dent. Dixie is a pet-sitter for
several furry and purry
clients.
Pet sitters need access to
their charge's houses, so when
Marilee Doerring calls to tell
Dixie to pick up new keys to
the house, Dixie drives over,
excited at an extra chance to
see Marilee's cat, Ghost. What
Dixie didn't know was that

A1'J ICE GOjNDO'LIER ,U;N


GHOST from Page IB
dorse the value of a good
ghost story.
In a lesson plan called
"Teaching Epic Through
Ghost Stories," is it suggested
that "Our oral tradition of
telling ghost stories, with
which students are very fa-
miliar, builds a useful bridge
to the oral tradition of the
ancient epic narrators."
The outline added, "Enjoy-
ing ghost stories, particularly
stories about a place they
know, helps students to pic-
ture ancient storytellers and
their listeners as they gather
around a fire to hear an epic.
Hearing ghost stories also
helps them to appreciate a
good storyteller."
Now, I do not profess to be
an "epic narrator," and I only
hope I'm a fair storyteller. But
I found the NCTE and IRA's
pronouncements interesting
and supportive.
In the NewYork Sun news-
paper in 1897, editor Francis
P Church wrote an editorial
answer to 8-year-old Virginia
O'Hanlon, who had asked, "Is
there a Santa Claus?"
In his timeless response,
Church wrote, "'All minds, Vir-
ginia, whether they be men's
or children's are little. In this
great universe of ours, man is
a mere insect, an ant, in his
intellect as compared with
the boundless world about
him, as measured by the
intelligence capable of grasp-
ing the whole of truth and
knowledge...
"The most real things in the.
world are those that neither
children nor men can see. Did
you ever see fairies dancing on
the lawn? Of course not, but
thafs no proof that they are not
there. Nobody can conceive or
imagine all the wonders there
are unseen and unseeable in
the world."
Church, incidentally, was
the son of a Baptist minister.
Christmas (which of
course, has also fallen by the
politically-correct wayside)
also inspired the likes of
Charles Dickens to write sev-
eral ghost stories, the most.
-niofffPbeiig "A' "Chistmias


Carol." It was, as he called it,
"A Ghostly Little Book."
And, in the popular Christ-
mas oopss, holiday) song re-
leased in 1963, lyrics include
"They'll be scary ghost stories
and tales of glories of Christ-
mases long, long ago."
Ironically, the name of that
song is "It's the Most Won-
derful Time of the Year."
With references to both
ghosts and Christmas, the song
is sure to be anything but won-
derful to some people.
So, just how far amuck can
all of this run?
Consider Veterans Day. I
read in my local newspaper
that a chorus of fifth- and
sixth-graders from a local
school sang at a Veterans Day
program at Veterans' Grove,
in Reading's City Park.
Picture that.
Innocent, impressionable
elementary school kids,
standing between vintage
cannons and Howitzers and
memorials to fallen warriors,
singing to honor professional
military men and women
who were trained to kill peo-
ple and destroy property.
This veteran asks, only
partly facetiously, if that
should be allowed. "What are
we teaching these children?"
Consider Thanksgiving. Al-
though kids could not wear
costumes at Halloween, several
were pictured in the news-
paper wearing "Pilgrim" and
"Indian" costumes at aThanks-
giving play. Funny, huh?
But do not the Pilgrims
represent a deep religious
conviction? Is not Thanks-
giving a faith-based holiday?
And do not the painted-faces,
feathers-in-headband
"Indians" represent a deep
insensitivity toward Native
Americans?
What are we teaching
these children?
In the news was an item
about a controversy in Sara-
sota, where an idea to create,
decorate and sell fiberglass
clowns as a citywide art pro-
ject and charity fundraiser
had run into opposition a
"clown-troversy" they
called it.

ties felt the placement of the
clowns should not be allowed
because "some people" be-
lieve clowns are "too scary."
Clowns.
Too scary.
In Sarasota, the home of
the Clown Academy, the
Museum of the Circus, John
Ringling and the circus he
founded. Clowns. Too scary. Is
it me?
Is it only me who thinks all
of this skittishness has
teetered into a place we
should not be?
I have a friend who is a
teacher and a Civil War reen-
actor and tells vivid tales of
the battle of Gettysburg.
A school district reluctant-
ly allowed him to continue to
tell the tales, but requested
that he not mention guns
when he does so.
Talk about a battle, but do
not mention ... uh... guns.
"What do those people
think those men died from
out there," he asked, "fright?"
And how about the Johns-
toWft, Pi,; schooll district tat


asked teachers to refrain from
snowman decorations in
wintertime. Nothing depict-
ing a snowman should ap-
pear anywhere in any Johns-
town school.
Heavens to Frosty!
No snowmen!
Correct. And, it's because a
B-list rap "artist" had chosen
the depiction of an angry
snowman as a symbol of
cocaine drug dealing. T-shirts
with the faux-snowman were
hot-selling items among the
B-list of the student body.
Johnstown High School
Principal Dan Resenic was
quoted in the press as saying,
"It's a sad commentary that
people can make a nice profit
by degrading something that
is a holiday tradition."
Consider this Mr. Resenic
and Miss Principal from the
Halloween-trashing subur-
ban Reading school district.
Consider not cowering in
fear, caving in and conceding
defeat at the. hands of a
minority of pathetic party-.
poopers who seek to'tread'on'


traditions and emasculate
observances.
My Halloween storytelling
season concluded on Hallo-
ween itself at, ironically, a
school in Pottsdown, Pa.
Having been assured that I
was there to tell the middle
school students many
rather rugged, inner-city kids
- ghost stories as part of
their Halloween program, I
strode into the school well
before showtimee" and se-
creted myself backstage.
There, walking stick in hand
and top hat on head, I waited
until I heard the first rumble
of incoming students.
I peeked from behind the
closed curtains into the audi-
torium as it filled. Hmm, I
thought, a tough crowd.
But, I knew the storyteller's
garb and countenance would
get and hold their attention as
long as I did what I do best -
tell ghost stories.
I walked confidently on
stage and took complete con-
trol of their senses and imagi-
nations. For 20 minutes or so,
I took them to a place many
had never been before. As my
make-believe bonfire sizzled
and crackled behind me, it
fueled my own enthusiasm.
Out in the dim auditorium
was a galaxy of wide eyes. You
could hear a feather drop as I
let the ghost stories kick in. I
could also see that many of
the students were wearing
costumes. That added even
more kindling to the fire
burning slowly within me.
For my "grand finale" I
decided to trot out a trick I
hadn't pulled in years. It's a lit-
tle device that methodically
and mysteriously brings the
right kind of audience into
the palm of my hand until I
shock them with a surprise,
ending that leaves them
shrieking. This was the right
kind of audience.
It worked like a charm.
Shriek they did. And as
they shrieked, I disappeared
behind the curtains.
It was the right kind of
audience and the right kind
of school. The teacher who
invited me to speak was
dressed as,' gorgeous geTsha


(there are lessons to be
learned about that too, I sup-
pose); and although dressed
professionally, the principal
sported a tie with creepy art-
work and a button that play-
ed spooky music when
pinched.
I left that school with a re-
newed spirit Halloween was
still safe, at least in that school.
As I drove home I felt a lit-
tle remorse about canceling
that other storytelling session
in that other school. I couldn't
have cared less about the
pusillanimous principal or
the timorous district, but I felt
bad that due to the extenuat-
ing circumstances, I let that
reading specialist down.
More than that, I would
have liked to go there and get
face-to-face, imagination-to-
imagination with those kids.
But, I'm sure the cardboard
cutouts of turkeys and pump-
kins at their Fall Festival made
their Halloween very special.
Who am I kidding?
They were probably too
busy reading Harry Potter
books, engaging in a round of
Mortal Combat, or playing
The Suffering or the aliens
and predators games on their
X-Boxes.
Who needs live ghost story-
tellers when they have all that?
Pardon me as this dinosaur
trudges back into the shad-
ows. I hope I don't tread on
any lemmings on the way.
There's a lot of them out there
these days.

When You Look Good


Sciatica
(pain
associated with the sciatic nerve)
can be easily triggered by slips
and falls (as well as the
contortions that one undergoes
trying to avoid them), heavy lifting (or
twisting the wrong way when doing so),
and exercise/sports injuries. Sitting for long
periods or being pregnant or overweight
can contribute to the problem. The sciatic
nerve starts at the lower back and branches
down through both legs into the feet. This
pathway serves as a map for the pain that can
be felt along the nerve's length or just at
) specific points. In addition to pain, there may
be numbness or tingling, sensations of hot or
cold, and/or needle-like sensations. To avoid
persistent pain, visit the chiropractor.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER,
we focus on the important relationship between
the spine and the millions of nerves contained
in the spinal cord. We're located at
1214-C Venice Ave. East, where a broad range
of in-office equipment and services help us
meet our patients' individual needs and bring
them maximum relief from their discomfort.
Please call 941-412-3800 to schedule an

it all out very carefully before I

wrote it a little each day. It
gave me something to look
forward to. Well, I finally fin-

ished it and sent it off to this

They sent it back. Got it back
this morning."
"Sorry to hear that," Doc
said. "But hey, you just send
that puppy right back out
again now."
"That's right," said Steve,
the cowboy of the bunch.
"You get bucked off, you get
right back on again."
"Been thinking, some,"
Dud said. '"About what they
wrote me. Maybe I need to
work on it some more ... you
know, before it's ready for
publication."
"They wrote you a letter
and told you what was wrong
with it? Hey, that's pretty nice
of them."
"Well, yes, I guess so. But if

I redoit the way they want it,
it!i lake .me a long ,timv,
Months maybe."
"What was their problem
with it?" Doc asked, kindly.
Doc has always been a silent
patron of the arts.
"They said eight murders
was too many."
"Well, I for one don't think
eight murders is too many for
a murder mystery," Doc said.
"I know other mystery writers
who have had eight murders
in one book and they got pub-
lished just fine."
"That's true, Doc," Dud
said, "but these folks said
eight murders was too many
in the first chapter."

Is are part of the family, too


BY DALE MOORE
GUEST COLUMNIST

Good old Pudge! I don't
know what brought him to
mind this week. He's been
dead for more than 50 years.
Pudge (don't ask me Where
the name came from or what
it meant) was Dad's dog even
before Dad and Mom were
married 70 years ago. He
wandered .into the refinery
where my dad worked and
hung around several days,


eventually convincing Daddy
to take him home. When
Mom married Dad she also
got Pudge. I first met Pudge
the day I was born. I was born
at home and old Pudge came
strolling into that bedroom
shortly after I arrived to check
me out. We were. constant
companions from that day
on.
He was just a mutt; with no
pedigree. He pretty much ran
his own life. When he wanted
out, he went to the door and


wined and we let him out. No
leash for old Pudge. He wan-
dered the neighborhood, and
when satisfied that every-
thing was in order, came
home and scratched on the
door to be let in.
Old Pudge never ate
"healthy formulated" dog
food. He ate "people" food,
the same food our family ate
each night; scraps from our
table.
I don't.think he ever had a
heartworm pill or a flea collar.


He never went to a groomer
and the only time he saw avet
was once when he was hit by
a car. First of all, my folks
could not have afforded such
care, and secondly, as much
as we all loved him, he was a
dog ... not a child. Yet he lived
to be 14 years old.
We now have a registered
West Highland Terrier named
Wee Mollie Foxcroft (Mollie
for short). She's a sweetie. We
love her dearly and treat her
royally. '


Last year people like us
spent $11 billion on pet care,
the average per pet owner
spent $1,266. We were a little
over the average because
Mollie had a torn anterior
crusciate ligament, so we had
surgery done on her.
I now understand why
some folks take out pet health
insurance. But Mollie, as
much as we love her, is, after
all, like Pudge, a dog.
Pudge wds just a, mutt.
Just?.No, he may have been a


mutt, but he was so much
more. He, like Mollie, was lov-
ing and protective and a com-
panion.
He, like Mollie, could
always be counted on to be
there when you needed
someone to listen. And he,
like Mollie, taught me many
valuable lessons, one of
which is you cannot judge the
goodness of a dog (or a per-
son) by his/her "pedigree".
, And that's my two cents
worth...

FRESH AIR


Teachers can apply online for


in-school mini-grants by Aug. 14


STAFF REPORT


Teachers interested in
securing a Splash! mini-grant
through the Southwest Flo-
rida Water Management Dis-
trict can begin applying
online. The application is
available at WaterMatters.
org/mini-grants.
This year the District im-
proved the online application
process and will no longer
have printed applications.
"Last. year we received 110
applications and only two of
them were submitted on
paper, the rest were all subriiit-
ted online," said Raina O'Neil,
senior communications coor-


dinator. "Going to an online-
only application will save the
District time and money."
Improvements made to
the online application in-
clude allowing applicants to
save the application so they
can go back and review and
change portions before sub-
mitting it. Grant applications
are due Aug. 14.
The District's Splash! mini-
grants provide teachers with
funding for classroom pro-
jects on water quality, water
conservation, alternative
sources, water supply, flood
protection or watersheds. The
goal of the mini-grant pro-.
gram is to promote hands-on


water education that teaches
students about their local
watersheds and the water
resources within them.
Splash! mini-grants are avail-
able for public, private, char-
ter and home school groups
and provide up to $5,000 per
group or school on a reim-.
bursement basis only.
Last year the District awa-
rded Splash! mini-grants to
108 educators, totaling more
than $232,000. Past mini-
grant projects include stu-
dent monitoring of local
water quality, the develop-
ment of water-conserving
gardens on school property
and outreach campaigns


designed to promote aware-
ness of water-conserving
practices.
In addition to mini-grant
funding, many free educa-
tional materials are available
from the District. These pub-
lications are correlated to
Florida's Sunshine State Stan-
dards and can also be ordered
online at WaterMatters.org/
publications.
Contact Raina O'Neil,
senior communications co-
ordinator, at (800) 423-1476,
Ext. 4774 with questions
about the Splash! mini-grant
application process or the
District's other educational
materials.

meeting interesting people. At

"Even then, Brian always
had a lot of energy," she said.

STAFF REPORT

The cafeteria at the Student Leadership Academy looked
like a hair salon Monday after-
noon. Seven girls and women
lined up to cut their long hair
for Locks of Love; a nonprofit
organization that provides wigs
for cancer patients who have
lost their hair.
In January, the Builders Club
at the school (the middle
school version of Kiwanis)
decided to participate in Relay
for Life to raise money for the
American Cancer Society. -
"Almost all of our members
have lost a friend or family
member to cancer. We all want-
ed to do what we could to help
fight this terrible disease," said
Ashton Aker, vice president of "
the club.
Trina Aker, the faculty advis-
er for the Builders Club, has
grown her hair for a year and a t ,''
half in order to donate it in
memory of a dear friend that
she lost to cancer last June. "I Donations of hair were madeI
told the club that I was going to Builders Club Faculty Advisor
cut my hair before Relay for Life donating but not pictured wa
so my friends and family could
make pledges for each inch of hair I donated," Aker stated.
Once she shared her plans with the club, several students,
Christie and Nikki Swanson, Sarah Vogelsong and Jessica


Wright decided to join in. Then the lunch lady, Linda Masse
and a parent, Julie Thompson, heard about it and joined in.
Carrie Dean of Reflections Salon in Sarasota volunteered

noon, everyone gathered in the cafeteria after school. The first
step was to cut all the ponytails; each participant must donate

10 inches of hair and the hair must be sent in to Locks for Love
ina ponytail.
All together, they donated 80 inches of hair-.
"We chose this week be-
cause we are participating in
Relay For Life this weekend
and we wanted everyone to
Sget w excited for the event,"
said Nikkl Swanhon, fpresi-
dent of the Builders Club.
Even thought's all fora good
cause, not everyone is excited
aboutit. rMost fathers and
husbands cherish the long
i s hair on their daughters and
wives, but the participants
were willing to make the sacri-
-, wce.
The Student Leadership Aca-
demy is a public s charter
school which' focuses on
scholarship. leadership -and
service.
ShiOn this afternoon in April,

ASK THE CAREY BROTHERS:


A tap tip .
By JAMES
and MORRIS CAREY
FoR AP \\LEEk'L FE ,-_uRL
You turn on a faucet and
all you get is a trickle or
streams squirting left and
tight. The problem might not
be in your faucet, at all; it
might be the small device on
the end of the spout called
an aerator. It is there to mix
air into the water stream and
to provide an even splash-
free flow. But its screen traps
all kinds of debris,from rust


use aerators
particles to calcium
deposits. Over time, it gradu-
ally cuts the flow, leaving
only a dribble or weak pres-
sure.
The solution is an easy
one. First, unscrew the aera-
tor, wrap it with masking
tape first to protect the sur-
face, then use pliers for a
solid grip. Once it's off,
remove the gunk from the
screen soak overnight in
\inegar, if needed) and screw
it back on.
