Successor to Bishop Nevins named


'Capping' Literacy Week at VES


Monsignor Frank J. Dewane comes to Venice
from posts at the Vatican and the United Nations.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


In preparation for the Jan.
17 retirement of Bishop John
J. Nevins of the Diocese of
Venice, Pope Benedict XVI
named Monsignor Frank J.
Dewane to be the coadjutor
bishop of the Diocese of Ven-
ice.
The announcement was
made simultaneously at the
largest press conference to be
held in Venice in recent histo-
ry and in Rome.
"It wasn't like this 21 years
ago when I came in the mid-
dle of the night and was


installed the next day," Nevins
said.
Nevins arrived as the first
and founding bishop of a
newly created diocese, the
third in Florida. Today there
are seven.
Under the guidance of
Nevins, the 10-county dio-
cese has grown from 115,000
to more than 233,000 regis-
tered parishioners and from
39 to 55 parishes and 113
chapels and missions.
Nevins established one
new elementary school, two
special-needs schools and
the Blessed Edmund Rice
School for Pastoral Ministry.


To deal with an especially
large population of Spanish-
speaking immigrant farm-
workers, Nevins journeyed to
Spain in search of priests.
Dewane, 56, born and
raised in Wisconsin, came to
Venice Monday night directly
from Rome, where he served
as the Under Secretary of the
Pontifical Council for Justice
and Peace. Until his ordina-
tion at a time yet to be nam-
ed, he will assist Nevins in his
pastoral responsibilities. De-
wane was ordained for the
Diocese of Green Bay, Wis., on
July 16, 1988.
"I promise I won't leave in
the summers," Dewane said,
in reference to his Northern
roots.


The future bishop
At the Vatican, Dewane
served as an official of the
Pontifical Council of the Holy
Father. Prior to his posting at
the Vatican, he was a member
of the Permanent Observer
Mission of the Holy See to the
United Nations in NewYork.
He has been a member of
several delegations of the
Holy See to numerous inter-
national and United Nations
Conferences and Summits in
such places as Rio de Janiero
(Environment and Develop-
ment), Cairo (population and
development), Beijing (wom-
en's issues), Copenhagen (so-
cial development), Rome
(international criminal court)

Council term limits clear as mud


City attorney issues his legal opinion on council
members' eligibility to replace the mayor, whose
last day is NMay 10.


BY JJ.ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

If you can't complete an
'"'entire term,'then vou should-
n't be elected to Venice City
Council, ..' "
Mayor Dean Calamaras
announced his opinion dur-
ing Tuesday's regular city
council meeting. The mayor's
early retirement has created
the need to hold an election
this November to complete
the final year of his unexpired
term.
Term limits are creating
trouble as four of the six
remaining council members
could not complete a future
mayoral term. The city char-
ter does not allow any person
serve more than nine consec-
utive years as a council mem-
ber or mayor or a cofibi-
nation of the two without
taking at least a one-year hia-
tus.
That means some council
members, if elected mayor
this fall, would have to vacate
the seat with time remaining,
much as Calamaras is doing.
City Attorney Bob Ander-
son said that doesn't matter,
but the mayor sees it other-
wise.


rn$w~


"In my opinion, I've always
thought if you can't complete
a term, you shouldn't be eligi-
ble to run,".s'aid Calamaras,-
who wvlld have reached
term limits in November
2007:
This November's election
will be for a one-year term.
Another election will be held
November 200.' for a full
three-year term, as & w-ould
have happened anywa..
it is those future terms
council members are worried
about. Council members
must resign from their cur-
rent seat in order to run for
mayor, but many are worried
it would actually limit their
time on council.
Calamaras' last day as
mayor will be May 10, which
was stated for the first time
Tuesday. The mayor an-
nounced his retirement in
March.
In his opinion
The city attorney said his
legal opinion is the same as
three years ago, when former
council member David Farley
was considering a run for
council but some thought he
had already reached term
limits.


Anderson opined then, as
lie reiterated Tuesday. only
"elected" time counts against
term limits. The city charter
doesn't allow "appointed"
members to serve more than
a year because it requires a
vote to be taken in the nexa
available election.
The opinion was part of a
report by Anderson and City
Clerk Lori Stelzer. Council
members directed them to
issue a legal opinion on term
limits and then create a
spread sheet detailing t\ho
was eligible to run for what.
Being elected five times
within nine years, as is possi-
ble in the case of council
member Rick Tacy, is not a
charter violation, according
to Anderson. Tacy has been
put into a seemingly unique
situation because he was first
elected to a two-year term, re-
elected for three years, could
be elected to the one-year
mayoral term and then re-
elected to a full term that he'd
have to vacate with a year
remaining on it.
Some on council agreed
the rule does not make sense,
but the city attorney said that
is what they have to deal with.
Any changes to the city char-
ter have to be approved by
voters, meaning the earliest
any approved revisions could
be applied would be Novem-

The 21 miles of Interstate
75 between River Road and
Kings Highway will be ex-
panded to eight lanes.
But one question is:When?
And another is: Will it be a
free ride?'
There is no money to do
the work beyond designing
the project, so regional offi-
cials talked Monday about
the option of making some of
the new lanes toll lanes.
Such an idea could gain
momentum as road money
gets funneled to other pro-
jects.
The idea came as Florida
Department of Transporta-
tion consultants offered a
Project Development & En-
%ironment Study Monday to
the board of the Sarasota-
Ianatee Metropolitan Plan-
ning Organization.
faking the lead of Lee and
Collier counties and their
Southwest Florida Express-
way Audthority, MPO mem-
bers discussed a similar idea
for the widening of their
roads. That authority is plan-
ning to add four high-speed
toll lanes parallel to 1-75.
At the heart of the matter is
the realization that, based on
current funding options, 1-75
between River Road and
Kings Highway might not be
widened to six lanes until the
year 2020. That is eight years
after the level of service on
that stretch of highway is ex-
pected to be failing, or slowed
to near gridlock.
That level of service is
based on current growth pro-
jections and could be overly
optimistic, Sean Donohue, a
consultant for FDOT, admit-
ted.
Waiting on a windfall
The cost to widen the 21


miles of highway to eight
lanes is $395.6 million, if con-
struction were to start today.
Work would be done in
phases, with an additional
two lanes for each phase. The
final eight lanes would not be
done until 2020.
The project would put
lanes on either side of the
existing lanes so the state
could leave a 64-foot median.
What bothered the MPO
board members the most was
that the design is based on
2006 dollars when it is con-
ceivable the road may not be
built for another 15 years.
Manatee County Commis-
sioner Joe McClash said he
would not support the pro-
ject, even in concept, until.he
had the true dollar costs.
FDOT District 1 Secretary
Stanley Cann said that having
the plans on the shelf will
make sure the project is avail-
able if a windfall comes from
the state Legislature.
"Even when it, looks bleak,
we get these out of the way
with the hope funding will
become available," Cann
said. "We did with 1-4 in Polk
County and we got money for
that."
McClash said there needed
to be a regional plan of attack
on the widening of the inter-
state.
"I don't know how to get
these done without a toll
facility," he said. "We are try-
ing to catch our own tail. I
would like to see this as a toll
facility."
Cann said the Florida
Turnpike Authority is doing a
feasibility study to look into
the idea of running toll Jane.
from Collier to Pasco counties
north of Tampa.
"This is in the concept
phase and we would need to
reconfirm the (design) to

TiMS WEEK IN VENICE HISTORY


Mayor on the hot seat

From the April 14, 1975, Venice Gondolier Sun


BY MIKE WAYNE
NEWS EDITOR


Rumors concerning the
future of Mayor William
McCracken have run ram-
pant in the last few days.
Speculation runs from possi-
ble impeachment or recall, to
resignation.
McCracken on Thursday
refuted the charges made
against him by City Admin-
'istrator Paul Youngberg dur-
ing, Tuesday's council meet-


ing.
Council called an emer-
gency session Thursday to
review :the problem of
Youngberg's subsequent res-
.ignation and hear Mc-
Cracken's rebuttal.
Both McCracken and
Youngberg made statements
concerning the charges.
Additional complaints were
filed by acting City Comp-
troller Tom Holmes and City
Clerk Steve Albee against the
mayor.

McCracken told the coun-
cil it was his job to supervise
the affairs of the city in accor-
dance with the charter and
ordinances. He said he may
have stepped on some* toes
but he felt he did so in an
effort to get the most from tax
dollars for residents.
The mayor then denied
many of the statements
made by Youngberg, but
affirmed others by way of
explanation.
"Mr. Youngberg may feel


that it is. his prerogative to
criticize operations of the
NMayor's office as it truly is.
However. I feel he is being
arrogant to point out to the
council, as well as the citi-
-zens of Venice a review of
my actions since January
1974. Council as well as the
citizens of Venice, through
the press, have pretty well
reviewed my actions with-
out the assistance of Mr.
Youngberg," McCracken de-
clared.

For more than 30 years
now, airlines have not been
allowed to reuse animal
travel crates for health rea-

lines cannot lend crates to an
area facing hurricane evacua-

And donating crates would
be a loss the airlines cannot
afford, he said.
What this means for pet

Chamber: Widen bypass in segments


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR

Hoping to keep the U.S. 41
Bypass project moving for-
ward, the Venice Area Cham-
ber of Commerce wants the
state to break the job up into
pieces.
Florida Department of
Transportation engineers
have been showing prelimi-
nary design plans to Venice
City Council and community
members. Talk of resurrect-
ing the project, dormant
since 1994, has many around
town excited.
And then the reality hits:
The project isn't even listed
on the state's 10-year work
plan, and the estimated $60
million cost remains guess-
work.
John Ryan, president of
the Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce, fears this year's
redesign plan will mirror the
one from 12 years ago that
was shelved for so long it
became outdated.
So he made his sales pitch
to Venice City Council and
FDOT engineers just widen
the bypass north of East
Venice Avenue.
"The problem's been
around all these years, and

nothing seems to be chang-
ing," Ryan told council two
weeks ago. "The biggest
problem is the Venice Avenue
intersection. ... Why not just
do the north end of the
bypass?"
Smaller piece
of the pie
Council member Vicki
Taylor said she will "cham-
pion" the idea at the Metro-
politan Planning Organization
Board, where she is Venice's
representative. MPO helps
allocate and lobby for trans-
portation money.
The latest estimates from
FDOT have the segment from
the East Venice Avenue inter-
section to- Bird Bay Plaza
costing about $15.2 million,,
according to the April 11 city
council presentation.
*The project south of East
Venice Avenue is estimated
at between $38.8 million to
$49.4 million, depending on
which plan is used.


U.S. 41 PROGRESS REPORT
Intermittent lane closures are planned for nights through April
28 from Bird Bay Drive to Roberts Bay Bridge on U.S. 41. Closures
will only be at night and at least one lane of traffic will be main-
tained in each direction during the closures.
There are no planned changes to the present movement of
traffic configuration in the next two weeks
Southbound traffic was moved, between Shakett Creek Bridge
and Laurel Road, to the west and northbound traffic was shifted to
the median. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained in both the
north and south directions during daytime operations.
Trucks will be entering and exiting the roadway at active con-
struction areas.
The public is advised to use caution in the areas'where workers
are present and throughout the construction site.


Aside from
funding, ob-
taining the need-
ed right of way
will be the big-
gest problem.
The most recent
designs would
wipe out nearly
every business
fronting the
western side of
the bypass be-
tween Venice
Avenue and Gulf
Coast Boulevard,
including Wolf
Camera, Splash
Sun Fun, Nextel
Wireless and the
Brickyard Plaza.
"Look at other
options," Ryan
said. "Take one
bite at a time. Do
that north sec-
tion."
Under
advisement
This nearly 3-
mile stretch of
roadway needs
to be widened
from four to six
lanes to provide
more capacity.
The re-evalua-
tion and design
process is sched-

uled to be com-
plete in 2008 and construc-
tion could begin in 2010,
even though neither project
is listed on the funding
schedule. The redesign proc-
ess will cost about $5
million.
Splitting up the bypass
project is an idea the state is
considering, but no decision
has been reached, according
to the FDOT engineer.
"That is something that
will come up as this project
progresses," said Chris Piazza


of FDOT.
City council delayed pass-
ing a resolution in support of
the bypass project. Members
will review the design options,
as well as consider the VACC
suggestion, and pass a resolu-
tion at a future meeting.
Sarasota County Commis-
sioners have already endors-
ed the more expensive plan
that includes bicycle lanes.
Suggestions from the county
and city will influence the
state's final decision.

House bills of interest


STAFF REPORT
The Florida House contin-
ues work on a number of
issues important to all
Floridians and Sarasota resi-
dents in particular: child safe-
ty and protection, hurricane
preparation and economic


development initiatives.
Rep. Nancy Detert, R-
Venice, had her spring train-
ing bill passed out of the
Florida House Tuesday morn-
ing by a vote of 117 to 0.
This bill will now go to the
Senate and if passed will

include express lanes and a
financial study," he said.
Cann added that the idea
of creating a toll road, or
speed lanes, could make
sense when it comes to pay-
ing for future roads since the
road is paid for by the people
who use it.
"We are certainly also look-
ing at public/private partner-
ships as well," he said.
'Anything to get this work
done sooner."
Failed system
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton said he's
had all sorts of problems with
the interstate
system.
"This is a
failed system
today y ,
Thaxton said
of the level of
service along ,
1-75. I sug-
gest your
standards are Thaxton
in the gutter.
Accidents are the norm.
'As the corridor becomes
even more congested,
through roads such as U.S. 41
will become more clogged.
This is all without a glimmer
of hope any money is coming.
This has got to be frighten-


ing."
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Nora Patterson said
the interstate
is the only -
road system
that will now
get the major-
ity of state
road money,
and she is a
little more
hopeful the
road will get Patterson
widened
sooner rather than later.
"I'm ashamed to say this is
a game," she said of the
money and the project.
The MPO board agreed in
principle to the study, which
will have one more hearing
before going to the Federal
Highway Administration for
final review.
FDOT will have its final
public hearing 7 p.m. Thurs-
day at the George Mullen
Community Activity Center,
4956, City Center Blvd., North
Port. Project information will
be available starting at 6 p.m.

Commissions to determine

disposition of North Port lots


STAFF REPORT

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 have 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 cityofnorthport.com;
scgov.net; or Fisher's Web site

and elsewhere.
Dewane holds a bachelor's
degree in social sciences from
the University of Wisconsin
and a master's degree in inter-
national administration from
American University, and has
studied theology and canon
lawin Rome.
He was appointed to his
post inVenice by the pope fol-
lowing a request from Nevins
for an assistant.


The good months
Both Nevins and Dewane
spoke about the role of the
church in family value issues.
Nevins said the high point
of his tenure was obtaining
priests from Spain for more
than 200,000 immigrants, and
the most troubling time was
two and one half years ago
when issues of pedophilia
emerged in the priesthood.
"The Catholics have to


clean up the mess in the
church," he said, "and we've
got to strengthen the Amer-
ican family."
Upon his retirement, Nev-
ins said he plans to spend six
months a year in northern
Ireland where his mother was
from and then come back to
Venice for "the good months"
(winter months).
Until then, Dewane will be
meeting the priests in the


parish, getting a feel for the
spirit of the place and the
physical surroundings.
The date of the ordination
of Dewane as the second
bishop of Venice has yet to be
determined.

County to consider



hiking impact fees


BYBOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER
Impact fees are intended
to pay for area roads, parks
and libraries to meet the
needs of growth.
It's a great idea, but as
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton likes to
say, it doesn't.work that way
now.
Tuesday, Consultant Clan-
cy Mullen of Duncan Asso-
ciates presented commis-
sioners with an outline of
how he is going to try to
remedy the inequities while
not getting the county into
any legal trouble.
Impact fees are often the
subject of legal battles be-
tween developers an'd mu-
nicipalities. This adds to the
difficulty of getting fees in-
creased over time.
Sarasota County's impact
fees have remained relatively
unchanged for more than a
decade. Experts say they
should be updated every
three to five years.
Mullen intends to propose

LASSIFIED



S' nice Gondolier SunN N
To dterise call 207-1200


a formula by the end of the
year to assess impact fees for
roads, parks and libraries for
new development in the
county. Other fees, such as
those for other public facili-
ties, will take up to a year to
formulate.
Thaxton said he wants a
formula that provides the
county with the maximum
legal amount it can charge to
pay for any credits and pay
for growth.
The reason this is such an
issue is that the rapid devel-
opment in Sarasota County
should have translated to an
equal growth in area infra-
structure, such as roads, parks
and libraries.
The county is forced to use
money from other sources to
develop new infrastructure
and that sends a ripple
through the county budget.
"We're not even in the
ballpark," Staub said of the
current impact fees.
Mullen said his goal was
to get the most accurate
impact fee possible and still
be fair.
Shifting priorities
A new concept in formu-
lating impact fees is to con-
sider the building and up-
keep of state roads. In the
past, such fees would not be


collected because building
and maintenance of these
roads was a function of the
state.
Thaxton said it is logical to
include state road costs, and
that would naturally get these
fees up significantly.
Mullen is doing a similar
impact fee analysis for the
city of North Port and he has
recommended large increas-
es, much. higher than what
the county now charges.
North Port's changes
would more than quadruple
the fees for single-family
homes. The impact on com-
mercial properties varies
greatly depending) on the
square footage and uses. The
change in the impact fees
could generate $2.8 million
annually for North Port road
expansion and other capital
projects over the next five
years.
Those numbers are hard
-to ignore, especially as the
money coming from the
state for roads in particu-
lar is decreasing dramati-
cally as priorities shift.
The board agreed that
something needs to happen
on impact fees sooner rather
than later.

Rodriguez takes Nokomis


Village plan national


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT
Sarasota County took cen-
ter stage in San Antonio
Tuesday morning at the 2006
annual conference of the
American Planning Associa-
tion.
Planning officials from
throughout the world heard
developer Henry Rodriguez
describe his State Road 681
corridor plan in Nokomis
and the Bay Street Town
Center & Village in Osprey.
The two projects were select-
ed by the APA from hundreds
of infill and redevelopment
projects nationwide for pre-
sentation.
Rodriguez told a capacity
audience that "revitalizing
and renovating existing land
for different uses, and devel-
oping vacant land that has
been skipped over in urban
and suburban areas are es-
sential to the economic and
environmental sustainability
of communities."
"Sarasota County,, where I
come from," he said, "is just
like so many American com-
munities. Our county has to
build within the urban service
boundary. We have to use
existing roads and infrastruc-
ture to create compact com-
munities."
"If we do that," he added,
"we can avoid urban sprawl,


which is taking over South-
west Florida. You know about
sprawl miles of roads
and agonizing traffic jams.
Sprawl serves automobiles,
not people. It pushes people
out of our cities and into
rural areas."
"If we can stop this trend,"
Rodriguez suggested, "we can
make the automobile sec-
ondary in our lifestyle. That
is particularly important
today, with oil at $71 a barrel
and gasoline up to $3 a gallon
at the pump."
Billion-dollar baby \
Rodriguez explained to the
session, one of hundreds in
the four-day meeting, how
the two projects fit into the
county's community-driven
Sarasota 2050 Plan: It focuses
on infill and development
inside urban areas and com-
pact, walkable villages, ham-
lets and settlements outside
the urban area..
Construction of the $350
million Osprey shopping and
residential complex is sched-
uled to start early in May. It
will include a village of 532
condominiums that range
in price from $275,000 to
$700,000 in buildings of three,
four and five stories.
They will be within a com-
fortable walking distance to
60,000 square feet of retail
space in which restaurants,


professional offices, bou-
tiques, a spa and stores will
be located. Sixty-nine condo-
minium apartments will be
located on the second stories
of the retail units and offices.
The 25,000-square-foot
Osprey public library will be
built just off a village green
centering the complex, at Bay
Street and U.S. 41. AWal-Mart
SuperCenter opened last Oc-
tober on 11 acres of the
59 that Rodriguez originally
assembled at the site.
Nokomis Village, that State
Road 681 project, will be
three and a half times larger
than Osprey's. Rodriguez has
estimated that when com-
pleted, its value will be $1
billion.
"It will include 350,000
square feet of restaurants,
offices and retail space. It, too,
willoffer condominium apart-
ments above the commercial
units. The residential compo-
nent will include 1,800 con-
dominiums and townhouses,
ranging in price from $350,000
to $2 million.
Calling it a "corridor plan,"
Rodriguez described the No-
komis project as "assurance
of mobility of people and
goods. It will be another
example of a mixed-use com-
munity that reduces the need
for automobiles, and allows
residents to walk and cycle
more."

Exp lorers




on the job


ED MARTIN


When the Shark's Tooth.
Festival tents closed for the
night and many of us were,
home in bed trying to digest a
sausage-and-pepper 'sub,
someone was "watching the
store" the tents filled with
valuables.
Staying through the night,
accompanying Venice police
officers, was a group of young
people volunteering as par-
ticipants in a police training
program known as the Ex-
plorers.
Ben Kern, 17, holds the
rank of "chief," having risen
through the ranks over four
years. He will head off to
Florida Gulf Coast University
this fall to study criminal jus-
tice.
Already selected to be-
come chief next is Corey Pier-
son, at 15 the youngest Ex-
plorer to ever serve as chief in
Venice.
These youngsters bubble
over with enthusiasm for the
community service they offer
- helping with parking at,
community events, control-
ling crowds at parades and
assisting regular officers with
various duties.
They also described a
remarkably rigorous program
of physical and mental train-
ing, competitions and special
instructional academies.,
They are selected after'
careful screening by the po-
lice department and multi-:"
faceted evaluation during.
their experience as Explorers.
In addition, to their law,.
enforcement training, the
Explorers have an active pro-
gram of helping children,
through such activities as
wrapping and organizing giffs
from many sources and as-
sembling food packages for
delivery at Christmas time.
Explorers Post 86 is orga-
nized under the Boy and Girl
Scouts and sponsored by the
Venice Police Department.
Boys and girls ages 14 to 21
are generally eligible, al-
though Venice accepts some
youngsters at 13.
Among the 31 members
now active, David Kaczmarek,
a student at Venice Middle
School, is the youngest Ex-
plorer. He described an inter-
esting part of his training as


following scenarios, acted out
by the Explorers for exam-
ple, responding to a call for
help in a domestic violence
incident'
The police department's
community relations officer,
Dan Whittaker, is the key
leader in the program, along
with Officer Joe Whitehead,
who serves as the police de-
partment's training officer.
These experienced police
officers expect the best from
their charges: hard work, dis-
cipline, neatness, mastery of
police procedures, handling
difficult physical and psycho-
logiil' situations, expertise
with a variety of weapons and
other police tools.
Both have spent years
working with .the program,
and behind their firm leader-
ship style, it is clear the
youngsters see people who
care about them in a very per-
sonal way.
Whittaker described a
careful application process,
involving identification of
career goals, school perfor-
mance and attendance, rec-
ommendations from adult
members of the community
and more.
During the program the
Explorers are rated on more
than 30 items, including such
attributes as accountability,
decision-making, ethics, job
knowledge, oral conmmunica-
tions, performance under
pressure, safety, time man-
agement and problem solv-
ing.
Converging on Venice
The explorers train for two
and one half hours each week
and, in addition to their ser-
vice in Venice, also attend
events in other cities, includ-
ing a statewide competition
and a two-week training
academy in St. Augustine.
The, statewide meeting
(Kern isalso the president of
the state'organization of Ex-
plorers) will': be held here in
Venice this June and next
June. More than 500 young
people will be here, staying in
local hotels and taking part in
vafibisi competitions, testing
their skills.
While the events them-
selves don't lend themselves
to spectators nearby, there
will be a Media Day, so the lo-
cal press can share the activi-
ties with the public.
Not everyone in Explorers
is interested in a future in the
criminal justice system, but
the program does try to help
youngsters become career
oriented. The skills required
are those that correlate with
success in virtually any

LETTERS OM OIR OBUR

He ain't too prude to brag about play


Editor:
As a long-serving member of the Pecksniffian Society and
holder of the Blue Stocking Award, third class, I herewith sub-
mit my report.
I undertook the special assignment to attend the VLT pro-
duction of gasp "The Vagina Monologues."
Alerted by a letter of warning from a fellow Pecksniffian that
appeared in your paper some weeks ago, I was mentally pre-
pared. Ma with her to-the-ankle dress and bonnet, and I in my
tricomer hat, went to see this shocking exhibit.
Let me tell you these seven women cavorted, raved,
exposed their arms, knees and parts of their (if I may used the
word) bosoms! They also used some unrepeatable words. One
noun, repeatedly, in one segment of the show, and one verb,
sometimes used as an adjective or adverb, several times. A
preacher would have fainted, if his whiskey wasn't within
reach.
Beyond this, though I may lose the aforementioned award,
honesty forces me to say that the performance was touching,
moving, funny and entertaining. It is certainly not for the likes
of us high-minded, morally superior Pecksnifflans.
My next assignment takes me to the children's section at the
public library, where it is said lewd and depraved goings on are
described. These include tales of a young girl (I can't say "maid-
en") sharing a house with and tending to the "needs" of seven
miners, in the woods, and a shocking account of a girl who so
abused her sheep that they ran off, and became lost.


Veterans value
poppy purchases

Editor:
I want to thank the public
for recently contributing to
the Auxiliary poppy program
by placing a contribution in
the Auxiliary poppy contain-
ers and saying yes, they were
proud to wear a poppy for the
veterans. The poppy is an
emblem of sacrifice to re-
mind Americans of the price
of war the lives of millions
of men and women.
Poppy days give the public
an opportunity to pay tribute
to these veterans and also
honor those veterans who
have willingly served their
country.


J.F. Myers
Nokomis

The money contributed
will be devoted to assisting
the veterans and their fami-
lies. The poppies were made
by veterans at Bay Pines
VAMC in St. Petersburg and
this program provides physi-
cal and psychological therapy
for those veterans.

Dishing the dirt on DeLay
Editor:
While I understand the ne-
cessity and fairness of equal
coverage of received letters, I
find the recent letter submit-
ted by Lillian lannarone filled
with errors that need to be


addressed.
Were I to clarify all the
gross generalizations she
made, this letter would imi-
tate a dissertation. So, I'll stick
to one: Tom DeLay.
Ms. lannarone's own
words were as follows: "DeLay
was indicted for a nonexisting
crime." Of course, this is all
she writes on the issue, so it is
up to the readers' imagina-
tion to figure out what she
means. Let me take you


through the some of Tom
DeLay's misconduct.
On May 26, 2005, a Texas
judge ruled that a committee
formed by DeLay had violat-
ed state law by not disclosing
more than $600,000 worth of
fundraising money.
On Sept. 30, 2004, the
House Ethics Committee
(which, I may add, is com-
posed of an equal number of
Republicans and Democrats)
unanimously admonished


DeLay on multiple counts.
Eventually a state investiga-
tion led to felony indictment
in September 2005.
In 2005, the Federal Elec-
tions Committee audited
DeLay's political action com-
mittee and found his PAC
failed to report debts owed to
its vendors.
It seems clear to me, and
many lawmakers, that DeLay's
wrongdoings were certainly ,
real and serious enough to


warrant punishment. These
acts of corruption are certainly
not "nonexisting crimes," as
Ms. Iannarone would have you
believe. Obviously if this were
true, judges and ethics com-
mittees would not have taken
such actions.
In the future, Ms. Ian-
narone, please back up your
claims with actual facts.

A year, a career ./ -
While Explorers go on to
many careers, a eood number


have found their way into
police departments and the
justice system. Whittaker rat-
tled off names of officers on
the Venice Police Depart-
ment, the Sarasota force and
in the sheriff's department
and other organizations
around Florida.
In the New York City Police
Department there is an insid-
er's way of referring to being
an officer: being "on the job."
The term is not used local-
ly, but these young Explorers
are definitely "on the job" for
Venice.

Why stop at the poor and the elderly?


Keep 'em out! I'd like to add some comments to the one
about keeping the poor and the elderly off the island and sav-
ing the island for future tourist attractions. The writer didn't go
far enough. We should also keep out the fat, the ugly, those who
are too tall, too short, too skinny or too bald, and especially
those wearing bad toupees. Now tell us mister, which of those
categories do you fit into?


Let them pay. The Sarasota
County school impact fee
should be increased to what-
ever amount is required to
build the necessary schools
required by growth. New
homebuyers moving into a
community that has suffered
population loss and has sur-
plus school classrooms might
not have to pay a school
impact fee. That makes sense.
But new homebuyers electing
to move into a growing,
crowded community with
high land and construction
costs should be paying a big
school impact fee. That
makes sense too.
Convenient. I want to say
how utterly convenient and
truly sad that the superinten-
dent of county schools and
the school board apparently
arranged the tax referendum
to be presented to voters just
before the state of Florida
finally plans to pass legisla-
tion considerably raising the
spending for all Florida stu-
dents, including those in
Sarasota.
White elephant. The verbal
concern of our city fathers for
good upkeep and adhering to
district architectural rules -is
not attested to by their
upkeep of property on
Granada opposite city hall.
The so-called historic house
is a white elephant to taxpay-
ers. We can look for expend-
ing well over $1 million of tax-


payer money. Even then, it is
an eyesore and not of any
value to the city. The only
benefactor is the original
owner who persuaded our
council to move the place for
him to save him the money
for demolishing it. You may
recall when the Triangle Inn
building was saved and the
total expenditure for its pre-
sent condition was well over
$1 million. And what is need-
ed on the Granada property is
a new parking lot where the
city could park its vehicles
and to be used for overflow at
the beach. The look now is
pathetic. It looks like a used-
car lot.
Shocked by obesity. I was
just' reading the newspaper
this morning and right next to
your column there's an inter-
esting article on obesity.
Some of the information said
that Floridians are basically
overweight and obese. I got to
tell you, I agree with that. I
just relocated from California
and when I arrived I was
absolutely shocked at the
number of overweight peo-
ple. I noticed women in those
big, big shorts that are sold in
stores with the elastic waist
and the rather long, wide legs.
I was amazed at the size of the
women, especially in the
town of Venice, and men as
well. I've never seen so many
overweight, middle-aged
Americans in one spot in my


life. I'd like to see more on
what kind of food we should
be taking and not the food
that is available out there, like
fast food.
Call the DOT. Somebody
wrote in the paper today that
we need a left-hand turn sig-
nal to go into Tampa Avenue
off Business 41 and they
wanted to know who to get in
contact with. I already got in
contact with a Mr. Donald
Cashdollar, who's from the
Florida Department ofTrans-
portation, and his number
(863) 519-2490. They were
supposed to do a survey in
February to see if we needed
it. But whether they did it or
not is another question. But
that's who you should con-
tact.
Misplaced ad. I am an 18-
year-old resident of Venice,
I've grown up here all my life
and I find it troubling that if
you look on page 15A on
March 26, you have a picture,
of Gary Swikle talking to a
young child on the Venice
Little League field. Then, in
the field below, you have an
ad that says, "Exciting sex,
one-hour erection in five
minutes." I think this is one
misplaced ad. With all the ad
space that you do have in the
Gondolier Sun, I'm surprised
that you couldn't find a better
spot for it. I was just calling to
show that people do care and
read what you put in, the ads
and they should be appropri-
ately placed.
Double standard? I'm just
wondering, I live in Venice
Bay, and I had a neighbor of
mine who put a doublewide
in and he had to have all his
skirting done, and his stairs


up and everything complete
before he could move in. We
have one in here for over six
months and they have half
the porch done, no skirting
and it's just more of an eye-
sore. I'm just wondering how
come they could move in and
live there, and my neighbor
couldn't. It'seems like they
have two different values for
Venice. It seems like it's who
you know.
No meters. This call is
regarding the possibility of
parking meters in downtown
Venice. I think it's a really bad
idea. Venice is such a beauti-
ful neighborhood, a loving
town. It doesn't need what big
cities have and they're ugly.
Yes, no, yes. I'm answering
three of your questions. One
is yes to raising the impact
fees. Sarasota County is sup-
posed to be such a wealthy
county and our impact fees
are much lower than other
counties. I don't know why,
unless the developers are in
favor with the people in
charge. Next question, no
there shouldn't be parking
meters in downtown Venice. I
think you could still have the
two-hour limit. And would I
attend an evening council
meeting? Yes, I would.
Looking shabby. The
Nokomis post office on Laurel
Road still looks a little shabby.
The bushes are shabby and
the lights are not adequate at
nighttime half the lights
are burned out. That needs
some touching up. And Cala-
maras is going to be stepping'
down. He's been bragging this
is a place to retire: why is he
leaving?'Lot of things have
happened, from Grove Ter-
race to the million dollars
spent on EPA problems,
George Hunt carrying a gun


- major issues. Now he's
leaving town so early in his
term. And if we're thinking
about changing the charter,
maybe we should look at
some zones or districts, espe-
cially in the area' out :east,
which is a bigger portion of
the city than the island of
V enice. ,: :: "
Plenty of money. Now that
the taxpayers have approved
the school tax, there should
not be any need for the high
school science department to
petition city council for addi-
tional money to buy micro-
scopes for their research.
Seems like there's plenty of
money there now for equip-
ment. The research sounds
like a good idea. They should
have enough money for new
microscopes and to reim-
burse city council for the ones
they bought in the last few
years.
Marina traffic. I am ndt
against the idea of having a
marina at the airport. How-
ever, has anyone considered
the increased number of
bridge openings this would
cause? Just imagine the traffic
backups that would occur on
the island just because of the
increased boat traffic caused
by a marina at the airport.
Could multiply. I would'
like to know how the home-
less couple at Venice Beach
received a brand-new picnic


table. What in the world is
Venice doing giving them a
new picnic table that no one
else can use? Doesn't the city
realize that once we have two,
it could multiply like rabbits. I
don't: think wei -need. .mire
homeless people oh' the
_Venice beach?..-, .
Support I our leaders Thdre
was a caption: statifig, :"Two
more' years." printed in the
paper. Certainly political,
which should not have been
accepted. I think we: are
extremely fortunate to experi-
ence freedom of speech, and
the privilege certainly must
come with common sense and
courtesy. The one we. have
elected freely is our leader. We
most certainly should show
common sense, respect and
unity. The Sept. 11 attackhap-
pened just after the begin-
ning of our president's term.
How, in God's realm, could
anyone have controlled bet-
ter the citizens with calm and
hope than our elected leader?
Just imagine how othercoun-
.tries perceive this' country,
criticizing and making. jokes
about the person we freely
elected. Truly history will tell
this presidency, contributed
greatness, hope and calm to
all the citizens, of the U.S.
Please, people, think before
you criticize our elected lead-
er. This is a wonderful coun-
try.

Lady Indians survive



Northeast scare


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

In regional tournament
play, no one is a favorite. The
playing field is level. Anything
can happen.
Venice High, the No. 1
ranked team in 5A, found that
out in its regional opener
Tuesday night, as unheralded
St. Petersburg-Northeast gave
the Lady Indians all they
could handle.
Venice caught a late .break
and won, 2-0, to advance to
Friday's semifinal against
Chamberlain. Game time is
4 p.m. Friday in Tampa.
Chamberlain, the No. 2
ranked team, defeated East
Lake 5-0 in its regional opener
Tuesday.
Northeast came into Tues-


day's game at the District 11,
runnerup with a record of
13-7. Pitcher Danie Seibert
gave the Lady Indians fits
with her assortment of
pitches.
"She was better than what
I expected," said Venice head
coach Larry Sandburg, whose
team improved to 27-2. "She
ran the ball in and out and
was sneaky. I told the girls
every game was going to be
like this."
Or in other words, the
Lady Indians are going to
have to roll up their sleeves,
grit their teeth and tighten
their chin straps&
If it weren't, for defensive
gems by shortstop Brittany
Hipple, it might be the Lady

light reel came in the top of
the fifth inning. Lady Viking
Michaela DuBois blooped a
single to right-center and the
ball away for a two-base
error. Mikala Smith hit a shot
in the hole. Hipple laid out
and made the stab, stood
and fired to first. It flat-out
saved a run.
Venice didn't have many
scoring opportunities. In the
first, Nikki Clark singled and
died on second. In the third,
Venice loaded the bases on
hits by Clark and Maureen
Sandidge sandwiched around
an error on a deep fly ball to
center by Felicia Taylor.
Venice left the bases
loaded.
Finally, with the help of a
huge error, the Lady Indians

sixth by working a walk and
Sandidge moved her to see-
ond with a bunt. With two
outs, Megan Watson stepped
to the plate. She sent a fly
ball down the right field line.
It was a tough play for soph-

there and had the ball in her
glove before dropping .it.

and Watson went to second.

Laird was the winning
pitcher, allowing four hits in

hits and struck out five.

waiting a while to. heat up

The former Venice High
standout had a week he'll

In five games, he went
9-for-19 at the plate. Four of
the hits were home runs.
For his efforts, LaNinfa
has been named Collegiate
Baseball's National Player of

Women golfers pull their own weight


There was a report quite
recently in the UK press
bemoaning the state of
women's golf in that green
and pleasant land.
According to the Ladies'
Golf Union, restrictive tee
times combined with boorish
masculine behavior, have, it
would seem, created a rare
species on the fairways across
the Big Pond the female
golfer. :
It's a situation that saddens
Kim Sheraton, who originally
hails from Devon, England,
but has spent many years in
Venice.
"I live here for six months
of the year," she said. "The
remaining time I return to the'
UK. I'm not surprised to hear
of the predicament over
there, though. I certainly
don't look forward to playing
in the UK. In Venice, and
America in general, women
golfers are never looked upon
as second-class citizens."
It wasn'talways that way
though.?:
As president of the
Manatee/Sarasota chapter of
the Executive Women's
Golfing Association (EGWA),
Joyce Vanatter has her own
horror stories to tell.
"I was living in Pittsburgh
when I joined the EWGA
because I simply didn't know
any women golfers. But in
those days, we had to have
our husbands call in to get
us tee times. Thankfully, we
don't have that situation here
in Sarasota County or in any
of our other chapters
throughout the States."


AKEN HAGGERTY
GOLF COLUMNIST


Established in 1991, the
EGWA has successfully intro-
duced women to the game on
their own terms. Now a suc-
cess in its own right, the orga-
nization boasts 115 chapters
throughout the USA and
Canada, including&. 11 in
Florida.
According to Sheraton, it's
strength in numbers that
makes the west coast scene
from Naples to Sarasota so
attractive. Not only that, but,
"clubs throughout the county
have woken up to .the fact
that we have a large dispos-
able income we get our
purses out."-
It's a fact backed up by a
recent study by the PGA of
America. It concluded that
the EGWA's 75,000 members
spent on average $3,993 on
golf fees, lessons, equipment
and food and beverage on an
annual basis.
What's more, 63 percent of
this membership segment

also reported annual spend-
ing of $2,212 on golf-related
travel, music to EGWA execu-
tive director, Pamt Swenson's
ears.
"We always knew' our
members were passionate
about golf and our associa-
[ion, but we. still were
impressed by the PGAs find-
ing. As we continue to reach
out to more women and
expand our membership,. we |
expect to make even greater
contributions to the growth of
the game." ...
According toi Julie. Edgar,
director of instruction; at The
Plantation Golf & Country
Club, the women's golf scene
in Venice has never been
brighter. With the LPGA doing
more than making up the
numbers in the sports pages,
Michelle Wie and local, girl
Paula Creamer hit the ,head-
lines more for their: stroke
average as opposed to their
hemlines, women are coming
out of the locker room by the
droves. r i r .
Although sheltered under
the umbrella of a private club,
Edgar was nevertheless
adamant that what exists off
U.S. 41 is reflected through-
out the women's game.
"I might have a skewed
viewpoint," she said. "But
there isn't any evidence of our
ladies slowing down. Here at
the Plantation it's easy for the
ladies to get involved and stay
involved as there are activities
going on all the time. There
are equal amounts of ladies'
activities as there are mens.
"It's my goal to get them
into a situation where golf
becomes fun in a non-threat-
ening environment and then
to get them to stay commit-
ted."
Then, of course, there are'
the social issues. According to'!
Vanatter, there are many
members who have simple


lost a playing partner -
namely their husbands.
"It is really interesting
hearing women saying the
reason they joined the EGWA
is, 'I want to play golf, but I've
got no .one to play with.' We
have many members who are
divorced or widowed -:they
simply want to,, meet people
to share a round with."
So does Vanatter feel like a
mlatchmaker? -
; "I think the EGW.A is
both saving marriages,". she
laughed, "'and restoring .peo-
ple'~i (faith,, int, themselves.
Many of our members say to
the men, 'Don't.be telling me
I'm a woman out there. I can
hit as far as you. I pay as much
as you and we hold our heads
high and we have as much
right ,to. be on this course as
you.,We've become a power-
ful force.' "
Music ;to Sheraton's ears.
But, despite women being
allowed to enter the British
(.Qpp fqr, the first time ts
year. sheastill wishes the Brits
could play catch up with. the
conditions and. the positive
attitude she has come,,to
accept on the many courses
in Venice she. frequents -
sometimes with her husband
in tow. She feels the report by
the UK's Ladies' Golf Union
has simply highlighted, the
difference she wearily has to
accept when she returns to
the UK.
"It's time, that we took
action collectively over there,"
she said. "I mean, dress
codes? C'mon. We must sure-
ly be past this. nonsense.
There's been a lot of innova-
tion in the women's game, but
the stuffed shirts over there
are suffocating us. The
E.ropean will ever be able
to catch up on the Americans
at this rate."
The words have, beenryspo-
ken, and it's time for action.

Tax Freedom Day passe; dYOUeel better


BY BOB FLISS
STAFF REPORTER

As of Monday, Floridians
were working for themselves.'
April 24 was Tax Freedom
Day in Florida, according to
. the Tax Foundation, a Wash-
ington-based nonpartisan re-
search organization that has
monitored government fiscal
policy since 1937.
Each year, the Tax Foun-
dation identifies a day when
Americans have finally earn-
ed enough money to pay all
federal, state and local taxes.
This is Tax Freedom Day -
the Tax Foundation has even
trademarked the name -
and all income from this day
through the end of the year
can be considered available
for personal expenditure.;
This year's national Tax
Freedom Dayis April 26, three'
days later than 2005.
The Tax Foundation also
calculates a Tax Freedom day
for each state, because state
and local tax burdens vary so
widely. No fewer than 29
states have marked Tax Free-
dom Day already, beginning
with Alabama on April 11. The
last state to cover all its taxes
will be Connecticut, on May
12.
In Florida, tax collections
have grown recently because
of the generally high level of
economic activity.
"Our tax burden is greater,
despite the fact that there
have been no state tax in-
creases and even some tax
cuts," said Dominic Calabro,
president of Florida Tax-
Watch, a Tallahassee-based


nonpartisan public policy
research group. "Greater con-
sumer spending and in-
creased real estate values
have generated more tax dol-
lars than ever before in
Florida, outpacing the nation
and thus placing a greater tax
burden proportionally on
Floridians."
So. Florida's historic repu-
tation as a low-tax state might
be exaggerated, if the relative-
ly late arrival of Tax Freedom
Day is any yardstick.

Paying the feds
This apparent contradic-
tion can be explained by the
fact that Florida residents
shoulder a heavy federal tax
burden even while their state
and local taxes are relatively
low.
The state's average per-
capita income is -$36,734, of
which $11,385 is consumed
by taxes, the Tax Foundation
reported. This works out to a
31-percent tax burden, close
to the national average. Flor-
idians must work 114 days to
pay their combined taxes.
However, Florida's per-
capita state and local tax bur-
den is $3,566, or 9.7 percent of
income. Only 11 states pay
less. Floridians must work 36
days to pay their state and
local taxes, compared with a
national average of 39 days.
Florida is one of nine states
that does not levy an income
tax on wages and salaries.
But Florida has many afflu-
ent residents who pay federal
income tax in the top bracket
of 35 percent. As a result,
Floridians have to work 78


days to pay their federal taxes,
one day more than the na-
tional average, Only 15 states
pay more federal tax than
Florida.
Complicating matters fur-
ther is the fact that some of
Florida's state and local taxes
are extraordinarily high. For
example, Floridians pay a
14.9-cent gasoline tax, plus
up to 18 cents in local-option
taxes. The total of 32.9 cents a
gallon is exceeded only by
Hawaii, according'. to Kurt
Wenner, research analyst for'
Florida TaxWatch.
But Wenner noted that gas
tax revenue is earmarked for
highway projects, making it
more of a user fee than a tax
levied to pay for the general
cost of government. So, a high
gas tax looks good compared
with a state income tax.

A constant third
As a major tourist destina-
tion, Florida also has the
advantage of being able to
place a substantial share of its
tax burden on residents of


Other states, noted Bob San-
chez, policy director for the
lames Madison Institute, a
Tallahassee-based public pol-
icy think tank.
Assuming an average stay
of nine days, total visitation to
Florida is the equivalent of 2
million more residents, none
of whom requires costly facil-
ities such as public schools.
Ultimately, Tax Freedom
Day is a device to measure the
cost of government. And for
nearly 40 years, the cost of
government has remained at
roughly a third of the national
income.
Nationally, taxes this year
will represent 31.6 percent of
income. The highest figure
calculated by the Tax
Foundation was 33.6 percent'
in 2000, which also had the
latest national Tax Freedom
Day, May 3.
But even as long ago as
1970, the cost of government
absorbed 29.4.. percent of
income. -, ,
The Bush administration's
tax cuts helped push the tax

climbed back up to 30.9 per-
cent last year.
Paradoxically, the Tax
Foundation notes that the
increased economic activity
from the tax cuts has also fat-
tened government.
"The economy has been
growing at a good clip since
mid-2003 and those growing
incomes are pushing people
into higher tax brackets.
When that happens, tax col-
lections grow faster than
incomes," said Scott Hodge,
president of the Tax Foun-
dation, in a statement.
"Despite the tax cuts
passed by the federal govern-
ment, Americans will spend
more, on taxes than they
spend on food, clothing and
housing combined," Hodge
stated.
Housing costs the average
American 62 days of income.
Medical care is next at 52
days. Food and transporta-
tion are tied at 30 days each.
Recreation costs 22 days of


income, while clothing costs
14 days.
The Tax Foundation- bases
its calculations on per-capita
income divided by'per capiti
taxes, using data from the
U.S. Department of Com-
merce's Bureau of Economic
Analysis.
The tax calculation at-
tempts to include everything,
including "hidden taxes"
such as excise taxes or corpo-
rate income taxes that ulti-
mately are passed down to
consumers.
However, the single biggest
item is the federal income tax,
which absorbs the equivalent
of 33 days of income. FICA
and other federal social insur-
ance taxes represent another
30 days.

da according to the National
Institutes of Health, 70
million Americans suffer from a
sleep problene, including more
than 50 percent of people 65
and older. T e orquences
of untreated d's ep disorders can
include irregular heartbeat, high
blood pressure hear tt'icl.ahd
stroke, as sefi as depression, fr- i.
ability and'evren asex l dvsfdh-
tion. .. ,. '. "
Because o pf'toe rise in
sleep-related- disorders, Vnice
Regional Medkcal Cent er has
recently opened a state-of-the-
art sleep lab at HealthPark, on
Jacaranda Boulevard. Featuring
comfortable suites with the latest
diagnostic technology, the lab
enables technicians to conduct
polysomnograms, a sleep study that is used to track physiological changes
at various levels of wakefulness and sleep. By recording brainwaves,
oxygen levels, muscle movement, body positions, rapid eye movement
(REM), heart rate, snoring, and other sleep activity, physicians are able to
assess the quality and duration of a patient's sleep, thus enabling them to
diagnose the nature of the problem and develop a treatment plan.
"The number of people affiliated with some form of sleep disorder is
on the rise due to the aging of the U.S. population,"says Jack Donoghue,
director of Venice Regional's HealthPark. "We're pleased to be able to
introduce this service in response to a clear need in our community."
While many' people may think of insomnia as the most predominant
sleep problem, there are many other types of disorders. Sleep apnea-a
condition that causes a temporary disruption in breathing during sleep-
is a common sleep disorder that can be dangerous if not treated. Others
include narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome, chronic snoring and night terrors.
Once a problem is diagnosed, treatments may range from medication
to nighttime devices to surgery. The good news, says Donoghue, is that
the study and treatment of sleep disorders has advanced dramatically in
the past several years, and nriany highly effective therapies are now avail-
able.
To learn more about the sleep lab at Venice Regional's HealthPark,
please call 486-6057.


RECONNECTr TO YOUR
HEALTH rn NATIONAL
CbOMENS, CHEC-UP DAy

Chances are you've probably
taken your child to the pediatrician
or reminded a loved one to schedule
a doctor's appointment recently. But
when was the last time you scheduled
an appointment for yourself? The
fourth annual National Women's
Check-Up Day, Monday, May 15, is
a part of National Women's Health
Week, coordinated by the U.S.
Department of Health and Human
Services (HHS).
National Women's Check-Up Day
is important because moms make sure
their families stay healthy throughout
the year, but they don't always take
care of themselves. Mother's Day,
May 14, is the perfect time to remind
mom that she should see the doctor
and take preventive measures to keep
herself healthy. Mariy of the leading
causes of death among women are
especially preventable and treatabl-lf"
the warn ing signs-are caught early.

Dtd Kni Know?
The top three causes of death
among women are heart disease.
cancer, and stroke. The Office on
Women's Health suggests these five
ways to help prevent these and other
diseases:
* Getting a regular check-up, at least
once a year
* Being physically active, like taking a
walk every day
* Eating a healthy diet that includes
fruits and vegetables
* Not smoking
* Following general safety rules

Do n't Frget Your BreastHealk!
According to the American
Cancer Society, if you are a women
over the age of 40, you should have
a screening mammogram every year,
and should continue to do so for as
long as you are in good health. If you
are over the age of 65, your mam-
mogram schedule should be based on
your health and whether or not you
have had serious illnesses--a doctor
will help you determine how often
you should schedule this vital screen-
ing exam.
If you are a woman in your 20s or
30s, you should have a clinical breast
exam (CBE) as part of a regular health
exam by a health professional, prefer-
ably every three years. After age 40,
you should have a breast exam by a
health professional every year. If you
are at ,i teased risk for breast cancer
(due' far'I,ly history," past breast
cancel c.) you should~k with your
doctor about the beneos and limita-
tions of starring m armniograms when
you are younger, having additional
tests (such as ultrasound or MRI),
or having more frequent exams. You
should discuss with your doctor what
approaches are best for you.

BYCOURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER

In recognition of Earth
Day, Mote Aquarium hosted
special events to promote
awareness of environmental
issues in the Sarasota county
area.
One particular event of
interest was the scavenger
hunt around the aquarium.
Children and their parents
got a list of items to find
around the exhibits. Each
item offers educational in-
formation about a specific
creature found in the Florida
waters. At the completion of
the scavenger hunt, children
received a temporary tattoo
and some beads.
In addition to the scav-
enger hunt, a display was
set up near the shark tank
giving a chilling image of
how much debris, including
human trash, pollutes our
beaches.
Another display, in the
Marine Mammal Visitor
Center, showed how long it
takes human garbage typi-
cally found in beaches or in
the water to decompose. A
simple Coke can can take up
to 80 years to decompose,
therein polluting the water
for many years.
Aside from the exhibits
displayed for Earth Day, it is
important to note the Mote
Aquarium is an advocate for,
Florida's eco-system year-
round. Helping Florida's ma-
rine environment has always
been one of Mote's primary
causes, since they began as
an education and research
facility in 1956. (The public
aquarium did not open until
1980.) Mote is working on
several ongoing programs to
help improve Florida's wa-
ters.
The first program Mote is
working on, which was an-
nounced earlier this year, is
the START program. The
START program, or Solutions
To Avoid Red Tide, will ben-
efit most Floridians and
tourists as its primary focus
is to be able to predict when


red tide algae will bloom. As
many Floridians know, red
tide can cause serious health
problems for. humans, but it
can also disrupt marine life.
The START program features
a giant torpedo that goes un-
derwater to analyze the light
spectrum of the algae. Red
tide is classified as an algae,
but it does not act in ways
typical to algae. If red tide
can be predicted, there are
ways in which it can be


focus of Mote since it started
in 1956, are now being
researched by using special
tags. Mote researchers go out
to the Florida waters, find
sharks, specifically bonnet-
heads and sawfish, and tag
them. The sharks are re-
leased, but then the tags start
to work. The tags don't track
migratory patterns, but it
does track gender; numbers,
distribution and size. This
process lets researchers

treated before it blooms. For
example, when certain types
of clay are placed in water,
it absorbs all free floating
materials in the water and
brings these materials to the
bottom of the ocean, pre-
venting its bloom.
The START program will
have excellent benefits to the
tourism and fishing indus-
tries in Florida and other
areas that suffer from Red
Tide blooms. Since some
marine life unknowlingly
consume red tide blooms, it
is possible for a person to
eat a fish filled with this poi-
sonous algae and become
very sick. If fishermen can
coordinate their harvests
when no red tide is present,
chances of healthier marine
life being caught are greater.
The next program Mote is
working on, which will be
announced in July 2006, is
the shark tagging program.
Sharks, which have been a


know how Florida's shark
population is doing. Since
Mote's primary focus has
been on sharks since it be-
gan, this project is a labor of
love for many of the Mote
staff.
At the Marine Mammal
Visitor center, there are three
more programs that help
Florida's marine life.
Florida's sea turtles are
beloved by many people, yet
still so many die every year
because of poor education
about what needs to be done
to care for them. Mote fo-
cuses on educating people
on how to take care of sea
turtles during their nesting
period, May 1-October 31.
Easily accomplished tasks
such as leaving- lights off
and not disturbing nests
greatly help increase sea tur-
tle survival.
Also, Mote has a tracking
program that shows the mi-
gratory patterns of turtles
over years of time, so
Floridians know when to
expect specific turtles back
on their beaches and where
they go in the meantime.


Education is vital to the sur-
vival of sea turtles.
The manatee is another
creature that is beloved by
many. Mote is currently doing
sensory experiments on
manatees to determine why
they do not move out of the
way from oncoming boats.
Some of Mote's findings indi-
cate that if manatees were
judged by human standards,
they would be considered
legally blind.
Finally, in an area not ac-
cessible to the public, there
is a section dedicated to sick
and injured dolphins. At
present, Mote has only one
dolphin in residence in this
department, and its name is
Val; Val is a female, bottle-
nose dolphin and was found
in the Tampa Bay area se-
verely dehydrated and un-
derweight. A group of volun-
teers, 200 who work at the
hospital, are willing to watch
Val because it needs round-
the-clock care, specifically to
monitor its vitals.
With all these programs in

Kindergarten and first-grade students gather in the Garden Elementary cafeteria to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day.


Hooray Garden El, for its first Dr. Seuss Day. By all
accounts, it was, well, quite a swell day! It hap-
pened last Thursday, and started quite early. But
'now that it's over, it's all such a blur day.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER
Cat in the Hat and a litter of
assistant cats in the form of
Venice High AP students and
other special guests were on
hand at Garden Elementary
last week for the school's first
Dr. Seuss Day.
County firefighters Chris
Lopez and Cheryl Snodgrass
'helped out, as well as a con-
tingency from the Sarasota
Reds, including pitchers Jim
Paduch and Sam Lecure, gen-
eral manager DanWolfert and
the team's mascot, RalliGator.
They took turns on stage in
the cafeteria 'reading a page
from the classic Dr. Seuss
story.
After the performance,
each class of kindergartners


through second graders came
up to get their picture taken
with the special guests.
Later, Cat in The Hat (a
senior at Venice High) and
guests went room to room
visiting with beaming stu-
dents. Two AP students went
to each K-1 grade classroom
with a Dr. Seuss book to read
to the class, which they then
donated to the classroom.
Students were given book-
marks and stickers to cele-
brate Read Across America
and Dr. Seuss's Birthday.
Venice High School Liter-
acy Council helped make the
event possible by donating
$500 worth of Dr. Seuss
books.
Success
The celebration was the


brainchild of a dynamic
teaching duo first-grade
teacher Ashleigh James and
her husband Michael, an
English AP teacher at Venice
High.
"We love Dr. Seuss," Mrs.
James said. "We both think he
was a brilliant man. Kids
gravitate toward the rhyming
and goofiness in his stories. It
motivates them to read, and
that's what it's all about."
"At the end of the day I had
more kids looking for Dr.
Seuss books in the library.
Even though some of the
books were at a higher level,
the children still wanted
someone to read it to them."
,"They were truly engaged
the whole time and paid
attention and were so well
behaved."
Mrs. James recalls at least
one success story from Dr.
Seuss day. Teachers photo-
copied parts of the story for
each pupil to take home. One

LYNN REIFERT
CORRESPONDENT

Communicating with chil-
dren seems more important
than ever these days.
Children can be at risk of
getting involved in some very
frightening situations. They
need to feel comfortable dis-
cussing what is going on in
their lives, with parents and
teachers.
Adults need to set the stage
early, and be prepared to lis-
ten and offer guidance in
ways that will keep the lines of
communication open at all
times.
Parents and teachers can
locate helpful information on
the Internet about how
to improve communication
skills with children. Or, they
can seek the advice of school
counselors.
One particularly good Web
site for the difficult topic all
parents and teachers need to
know how to address is thean-
tidrug.com. Other helpful sites
are ctclearinghouse.org; kid-
source.com; and parenting-
teens.about.com.
Here are some communi-
cation ideas taken from these
sites:
Teach children to listen.
Gently touch a child before
youth talk or say his name.
Speak in a quiet voice.
Whisper sometimes, so chil-
dren will learn to listen more
intently, .
*6Look a child in the eyes so
you can tell when she under-
stands. Bend or sit down,:
becoming the child's size.-.
Practice listening and
talking. Talk to your family
about what you see on TV,

WEDNESDAY
APRIL 26,2006


Residents remember Carlton wildfire of 2001


hear on the radio, read in the
newspaper or see at the park
or store.
Respect children, using a
courteous tone of voice. Talk
to them as you would to a
friend. They may be more
likely to seek you out as a con-
fidante.
Give your undivided at-
tention when your children
talk to you.
Avoid allowing anger at
what you hear to end the dis-
cussion. If necessary, take a
five-minute time out to calm
down and consider your
response.
Take note of what your
child is not saying. If he does
not tell you about problems,
but you suspect there are
some, take the initiative and
ask specific questions about
what is going on at school.
Be available to discuss
even sensitive subjects. Young
people need to know that
they can rely on their parents
for accurate information
about subjects that are
important to them.
If your child wants to dis-
cuss something at, a time
when you can't give it full
attention, explain why you
can't talk, set a time to talk
later and then carry through.
Don't interrupt.
Reserve judgment until
your child has finished and
asked you for a response.
Be aware of your child's
facial expression and body
language. Is your child ner-
vous or uncomfortable,
frowning, drumming fingers,
tapping a foot, looking at the
clock? If so, ask them how
they are feeling. Perhaps, they
are not quite ready to have the
conversation. Try later, or try a
different approach.
Avoid offering advice in
response to e'verv statement
your child makes. It is better
to listen carefully to what is
being said and understand
dthe real feelings behind the
words.

BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

With alarming clarity,
Elaine Vasas can still picture
herself gathering her impor-
tant documents and trying to
get her pets in her car, as
flames approached her home.
Although it's been five
years since the April 2001
bum at the Carlton Reserve
ravaged North Port Estates,
Vasas remembers the day that
changed her life as if it hap-
pened recently.
"My husband was- away,"
she said. "I heard this sound
and I thought it was the fire-
fighters hosing down my
garage, so I opened the door.
And there's this wall of fire 10
feet high."
Firefighters applied a red
powder, a fire suppressant, so
she could maneuver her car
out of the garage and down
the driveway to safety.
"I drove past this 60-foot
wall of fire," Vasas said. "I was
in a panic."
Vasas, along with her pet
parrot and Great Dane, made
it to safety that day in 2001.
The home she shares with her
husband, Andy, was also
spared, although they lost
about 300 trees on their 3-
acre North Port Estates prop-
erty.
The flames that approach-
ed theVasas' home and sever-
al others on Abdella Lane
originated from the Carlton
Reserve, where Sarasota
County had begun a pre-
scribed burn the day before,
on April 17,2001.
20 minutes
The county hired a con-
tractor, Mitchell Welch of
Welch & Welch Enterprises, to
manage the 450-acre burn.
The prescribed burn was sup-
posed to eliminate excess
vegetation in the reserve as an
ecological management tool.
Reducing the fuel available
for a wildfire was also thought
to promote public safety.
But as the burn pro-
gressed, the wind shifted, and


the flames swelled out of con-
trol. In, almost no time, the
fire jumped the boundaries
and took aim on North Port
Estates.
Propelled by 17-mph
winds, flames threatened sev-
eral homes in North Port
Estates, as well as cars, trail-
ers, sheds and livestock. More
than 5,000 acres went up in
flames.
Walter Richards, whose
home is also on Abdella Lane,
lost 20 antique cars, two
motorcycles and all his tools
when the fire claimed his
garage.
"It took only 20 minutes for
the whole thing to go," he
said. "There were no fire
trucks in sight."
Longtime resident Carol
Ayers recalled that she could
not get to her home in the
estates that day, while her
husband could not get out. It
was five hours before she
learned that her husband and
property were safe.
Earl and Susan Diemer
were not so fortunate. Just
two months earlier, they had
made the last payment on


their mortgage. On April 18,
the Carlton fire bore down on
their Abdella Lane home and
destroyed the dwelling.
$50,000 fire
Charles Diehl watched as
fire ripped through his yard,
ravaged his motor home and
burned most of his lanai. He
scaled his roof to hose it down
and protect the home, but got
burned from the scorched
roof, causing him to fall off
and sprain his ankle. He also
had third-degree burns.
In the aftermath of the fire,
several estates' residents filed
lawsuits against Mitchell
Welch and his company.
,"Welch was underin-
sured," said Richards. "We
reached a settlement but
there was not enough insur-
ance to cover the losses. I did-
n't even get one-twentieth the
value of my vehicles," he said.
The county settled a dam-
age claim with Welch for
$50,000. Two county employ-
ees also received five-day sus-
pensions for their part in
allowing the fire to rage out of
control.


Michael J, Barker, an envi-
ronmental supervisor,, was
cited for failing to properly
maintain fire equipment and
failing to tell superiors that
the fire was out of control.
Jeffrey Weber, environ-
mental services executive
director, was suspended for,
among other things, failing to
oversee contractor activities
and failing to tell the fire
department that the fire was
out of control.
Government officials be-
lieve such a fire is unlikely to
occur today because of steps
they have taken to prevent
such events. Sarasota County,
the North Port Fire Depart-
ment, the Division of Forestry
and others all say that pre-
scribed burns are done under
carefully controlled condi-
tions with plenty of prepara-
tion and backup to prevent a
fire from escaping.
But don't tell that to most
residents of North Port Es-
tates. Their memories of the
2001 fires are still too fresh.

are
experiencing
prolonged pain,
tingling, and/or numbness in your
hand and wrist, you may have carpal
tunnel syndrome. This condition is
i caused by compression of the median nerve,
which enters the hand through a narrow tunnel
formed by bones and ligaments. If tendons in
the carpal tunnel become inflamed and swell,
they can squeeze the nerve to produce the
typical symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. It
is important to treat this condition early on, as
prompt treatment can help avert potential long-
term problems such as the loss of feeling in some
fingers and permanent weakness of the thumb.
Studies show that frequent use of a computer
) mouse, but not keyboard use, might raise the risk of
carpal tunnel syndrome.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the occupational disease
of the 21st century. Do you have it? The drug-free
chiropractic approach of releasing nerve and spine
stress by freeing your body of vertebral subluxations
has been a blessing to millions afflicted with this
condition.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER,
we are on the leading edge of today's chiropractic
technology. We would appreciate your selecting our
office for your chiropractic needs, and we are here
at 1214-C Venice Ave. East, to be of service to
you. Our patients are important to us. If we can
assist you, call us at 941-412-3800 to schedule an
appointment. We offer message therapy and have
4 licensed massage therapists on staff.
P.S. Carpal tunnel syndrome may affect up to
10 percent of the population, and it occurs more
frequently among women over age 40. ,

Nuts to exercise: My

personal fitness formula


7B
WEDNESDAY
APRIL 26,2006


DICK HARRISON


A lot of exercise apparatus
at my Fitness Club is comput-
erized to give digital read-
outs of a mind-boggling
stream of information. They
will ask for your age and
weight, then monitor your
time, heart rate, exercise level,
distance, speed, calories
burned, calories burned per
hour, total calories, when to
speed up, when to slow down,
when to cool off and when to
call 911.
For someone who had so
much trouble learning to pro-
gram our toaster that my wife
replaced the old one with a
simpler model without the
"bagel" setting, this exercise
equipment presents a mental
challenge that threatens to
leave me tired before I burn a
single calorie.
On my first day, the trainer,
noting my confused look,
explained I had to master just
two commands when starting
a workout. The first was to be
sure to press the CLEAR but-
ton before beginning and the
numeral one when asked for
my exercise level. Because
these machines remember
the settings entered by the
last person to use them, if you
forget to press CLEAR you
might find yourself trapped in
the same workout just com-
pleted by the Tanzanian
marathon runner who left the,
machine before you came
along.
So far I've only figured out
the computers on the exercise
bike and the strider, both of
which have handles with
electronic sensors you are
reminded to keep holding
every time you mop your
forehead. As far as I can tell,
your heart rate begins at your
heart, runs down each arm
and out the palms of your
hands. The rest of the infor-
mation runs out the soles of
your feet and is displayed in
bright red numbers and let-


ters on the dashboard in front
of you.
In a weight-conscious
world the calorie is god, and
it's fascinating to watch the
digital readout counting the
number used as you sweat. It
got me thinking that although
I never met a calorie I didn't
like I've never really seen one
in the flesh except around my
mid-section.
I looked up "calorie" in my
illustrated dictionary on the
off chance there was a pic-
ture. No luck, but I did learn a
useful piece of information.
Besides confirming it's a unit
used to measure heat, which
probably is why I have a
warm feeling for them in a
hot fudge sundae, did you
know there are small calories
and large calories? Neither
did I.
A small calorie is, "the
amount (of heat) needed to
raise the temperature of 1
gram of water through 1
degree C." A large calorie is,
"the amount needed to raise
the temperature of 1 kilogram
of water through 1 degree C,
often used to measure the
energy value of foods."
I'm pretty sure that means
a large calorie is a thousand
times bigger than a small one.
Train yourself to think in
small calories rather than
large and you'll have no trou-
ble staying on any diet, no
matter how strict, or lying to
your doctor about how you
put on a few pounds, or to
yourself when you crave a
second piece of pie a la mode.
Even so, a calorie is too
abstruse for me to picture,
and if I'm to be encouraged to
expend effort by the flashing
readout showing how many
I'm burning, I need some-
thing more relevant to my
lifestyle to be effective. .
Because I like cashew nuts
about as well as anything I
can put into my mouth easily,
I've worked out a table that
allows me to convert calories
burned into cashew nuts
eaten. I can now convert the
calorie readout into cashew
nuts per mile or minute. It
gives me a real target to aim
for.
My "personal best" is 17
cashew nuts per mile.

resident.

PATTY OFCAPECOR


They all arrived a week
before our wedding in order
to help with final prepara-
tions guitarist, photogra-
pher, catering, killing off the
fire ants that have invaded
our outdoor reception space,
etc. You know, just the basics.
After checking off all of
these items, The Fiancee and
I were talking about our wed-
ding-day plans. The ceremo-
ny isn't scheduled until just
before sunset, and she plans
on a full day of pampering in
a local spa that will take her
right up until the ceremony.
"So what will you do with
your last day as a bachelor?"
she asked with a smile.
The words .had already hit
my lips before passing
through my brain, for
approval: There's a road race in
Bradenton, but it's at the same
time as our wedding, so I
might drive to Gainesville for a
5K they're having up there.
The Fiancee immediately
stopped what she was doing,
turned and produced a look
that says, "What type of drugs
are you on because that's a
terrible idea!" without utter-


mails to Cyndi Pelletier, well-
ness director at Warren Lor-
anger YMCA, Englewood, at
cpelletier@engymca.org for
more information.
YMCA opportunities
In addition to the facilities
and programs onsite at the
YMCA, there are a variety of
opportunities South County
YMCA is making available in
the community to help a per-
son be healthy and lose fat.
These programs include:
Low impact aerobics -
Monday, .Wednesday and
Friday at Venice Community
Center, 8:30 a.m,; fee is $4 per
class; no pre-registration
required.
Walking Club Monday,
Wednesday and Friday at the
Venice YMCA (meet at the
Marquee) at 9 a.m.; no fee.
Cardiac Walking Club -
Monday, Wednesday and
Friday lead by Julie Tickle,


ing a single syllable.
For those who do not
know, The Fianc6e is a non-
runner. She doesn't view run-
ning one last road race before
getting married as akin to a
wild stallion getting one last
chance to sprint across the
WildWest before cattle ranch-
ers put up barbed wire fences.
No. She sees me showing
up completely exhausted, so
dehydrated from sweating
my forehead is caked with salt
piles, limping because my calf
muscle has cramped up, get-
ting lost during the 190-mile
trip and complaining about
how I didn't even come close
to placing in my age group.
"What was that? What
would you like to do?" she
asks with a forced smile.
It is at this point I realize
The Fiancee's brain is focus-
ing on the image of a broken-
down runner who's too tired
to do anything. Ugh.
And then I realize some-
thing else. The wild horse
image getting one last chance
to run through open pastures
might not be what she wants
to think about, either.


LPN (meet at the Marquee) at
1 p.m.; this club is specifically
designed for those with car-
diac issues.
Calling 492-9622 for more
information on Venice
YMCA's weight-loss programs
in the community.
Venice morning runs
Area joggers are invited out
to morning training runs in
Venice. These runs start
promptly at 6 a.m. every
Monday, Wednesday and
Friday, so arrive a few min-
utes early A 13-mile distance
group has been' added to
Fridays. with runners on the
road by 5 a.m.
Runners meet on the
island at the main parking lot,
called Centennial Park, along
West Venice Avenue in down-
town Venice near the public
restrooms. Send an e-mail to
jandrews@venicegondolier.com
for additional details.


My brain clicks into Ooops
Mode: Oh, just kidding. I'll
probably go for a swim, an
easy jog, hang out at the
beach, relax. You know, pre-
pare for the big night.
I shared this story with my
running buddies all of
whom are married and
they laughed. On the wed-
ding day of all days, I was
putting me ahead of we.
Life is all about the bal-
ance. There are 364 other
days in the year to go run a
road race and find out how far
I can push my body.
There will only be one day
I make the promise of forever
to her, when The Girlfriend
who's becoire The Fianc'e
becomes The Wife.
Saturday needs to be all
about her and our families
becoming one.
Besides, I'm sure I can find
a road race to run while we're
on our honeymoon.
Back of the Pack is a week-
ly column appearing every
Wednesday. Send running-
related e-mails to Assistant
EditorJ.J. Andrews at: an-
dreiws@ienicegondolier.coim.

planning can be applied in
Venice and the Venice area.

Yellowstone National Park
tour buses built in the 1930s
and now stored there will
be refurbished with the in-
tent of putting them back on
Yellowstone's roads in 2007.
The yellow buses manufac-
tured by White Motor Co. of
Ohio have room for 13 pas-
sengers and feature roll-
back tops for sightseeing.
Yellowstone's fleet dwindled
with the rise of the automo-
bile, but eight buses returned
to the park in 2001 under
ownership of the National
Park Service. Others are in
private hands.
Plans call for the park
buses to be placed on new
Ford chassis and for replace-
ment of some parts. Those
visible will resemble parts
on the original bus.

STAFF REPORT

Trinity Charities Inc. is
pleased to announce the ap-
pointment of Hope Wullirpan

not-for-profit HIV/AIDS ser-
vice organization. This org-
anization came into opera-
tion only three years ago and
focuses on educational, pre-
vention and support services
related to HIV/AIDS for the
population in Sarasota and
Manatee counties and the
surrounding underserved
area. TCI's interest is only on
services not available or in-

who are infected or affected
by HIV/AIDS.
Wulliman comes to Trinity
with many years in manage-
ment and administrative ex-
perience in related social ser-
vice agencies. Her energies at
Trinity will be devoted to the
management of new initia-
tives. In keeping with the
educational commitment of
the organization, she will be

EDITOR'S NOTE: Thi, class*cC

published Nov 26, 1995.

Recently, I had a simple,
foolproof idea for eliminating

% as making spaghetti sauce.
I use an ancient Italian
spaghetti sauce recipe that
has been handed down
through many generations of
ancient Italians, as follows:
1. Buy some spaghetti
sauce. ,.
2. Heat it up.
Sometimes I add some
seasoning to the sauce, to
give it a dash of what the
Italians call joie de vivre (liter-
ally, ingredients). I had pur-
chased, from the supermar-
ket spice section, a small plas-
tic container labeled "Italian
Seasoning." My plan was to
open this container and
sprinkle some seasoning into
the sauce.
Already I can hear you vet-
eran consumers out there
chortling in a good-natured
amusement.
"You complete moron,"
you are chortling. "You actu-
ally thought you could gain
access to a product protected
by modern packaging?"
Yes, I did, and I certainly
learned my lesson. Because it
turns out that Italian season-
ing has joined the growing

The Sarasota Music Ar-
chive Inc. has been awarded a
grant of $9,114 from the
Walter Haskins Fund in mem-
ory of Stacey Haskins, Gus
Lobenwein Memorial Fund
and Josephine N.E Robertson
Fund of the Community
Foundation of Sarasota
County Inc.
This grant will enable the

will be available for use by
educators, students and the
general public.


ntunber of products that, For
Your Protection, are packaged
in containers that you cannot
open unless you own a home
laser cannon.
This trend started with
aspirin. Years ago ask your
grandparents aspirin was
sold in bottles that had
removable caps. That system
was changed when con-
sumer-safety authorities dis-
covered that certain con-
suimers were taking advan-
tage of this loophole by open-;
ing up the bottles and it,

So now aspirin bottles

ing insectsin rinature movies.
defending themselves against
consumer access via a multi-
level security system:
1. There is a plastic wrap-
per to keep you from getting
at the cap.
2. The cap, which is patent-
ed by the Rubik's Cube com-
pany, cannot be removed
unless you line an invisible
arrow up with an invisible dot
while rotating the cap coun-
terclockwise and simultane-
ously pushing down and
pulling up.
3. In the unlikely event that
you get the cap off, the top of
the bottle is blocked by a taut
piece of extremely feisty foil
made from the same impene-
trable material used to pro-
tect the Space Shuttle during
atmospheric re-entry.
4. Underneath the foil is a
virtually unremovable wad of
cotton the size of a small
sheep.
5. As a final precaution,
there is no actual aspirin
underneath the cotton. There
is only a piece of paper listing
dangerous side effects,
underneath which is ...

paper warning you that the

relating to the history and

It receives donations of
more than 20,000 records and

first piece of paper could give
you a paper cut.
Even this may not be
enough security for the
aspirin of tomorrow. At this
very moment, packaging sci-
entists are working on an
even more secure system, in
wifich dithe entire aspirin con-,
tainer would be ;located-
inside a live sea urchin.
With aspirin leading the'
way, more and more products
are coming out in fiercely
protective packaging
designed to. prevent con-
sumers from consuming
them. My Italian Seasoning
container featured a foil seal
and a fiendish plastic thing
that I could not remove with
my bare hands, which meant,
o fco u rse, that I had to use my,
teedh. These days, you have to
open almost every consumer
item by gnawing on the pack-
aging. Go to any typical con-
sumer household and you'll
note most of the products -
food, medicine, compact
discs, appliances, furniture -
are covered with bite marks,
as though the house is infest-
ed with crazed beavers. The
floor, \rill be gritty with little
chips of consumer teeth.
Many consumers are also get-
ting good results by stabbing
their products with knives. I
would estimate that 58 per-
cent of all serious household
accidents result from con-
sumers assaulting packaging
designed to improve con-
sumer safety.
Anyway, I finally gnawed
my seasoning container
open, no doubt activating a
tiny transmitter that triggered
an alarm in some Spice
Security Command Post
(WHEEP! WHEEP! WHEEP!

SONING IN SECTOR 19!).
While I was stirring my
spaghetti sauce, it occurred to


The following are some
"door openers" when talking
to children:
What do you think?
Would you like to share
more about that?
That's a good question.
I don't know, but I'll find
out.
Do you know what that
means?
It sounds like that is
important to you.
Do you want to talk about
it?
Effective communication
is not always easy to achieve,,
but it is extremely important.
Adults who think their
style of communicating with


me that if we want to elimi-
nate the drug problem in this
country, all we have to do is:
1. Make all drugs com-
pletely legal and allow them
to be sold in supermarkets
("Crack? Aisle 6, next to the
Sweet'n Low.").
2. Require that the drugs
be sold in standard consumer
.packaging. My reasoning is.
,that if physically fit, clear-
headed constuners can't get
into these packages, there's
no way that strung-out
junkies could.
Eventually, theywould give
up trying to get at their drugs
and become useftil members
of society, or at least attor-
neys.
I'realize that some of you1
may have questions about
this plan. Your most likely.
concern is: "If dangerous and'
highly addictive narcotics are
sold freely in supermarkets,
will the packages be required
to have Nutritional Facts
labels, like the ones that now
helpfully inform consumers
of the protein, carbohydrate,
vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium
and iron content of products
such as Cool Whip Lite?"
Of course they will. Even
though, if my plan works as
expected, an addict would be
unable to consume his heroin
purchase, he still has a vital
right to know, as an American
consumer, that if he did con-
sume it, he'd be getting only a
small percentage of his
Minimum Daily Requirement
of dietary fiber.
This is just one of the many
benefits we enjoy as residents
of this Consumer Paradise.
My head aches with pride.

Sarasota County 2006 All-

America City Award finalist


STAFF REPORT


Sarasota County has been
named one of 34 finalist com-
munities for the 2006 All-
America City Award program
by the National Civic League.
The All-America City Award
final judging will occur in
Anaheim, California on June
10 and 11.
The All-America City
Award program is the nation's
oldest community recogni-
tion effort. It recoghiizes com-
munities of all sizes, includ-
ing neighborhoods, towns,
cities, counties and regions
that have made major
progress in meeting their
most important needs.
The All-America City
application focuses on identi-
fying 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 'recog-
nized the need and impact of
a community-based adult
day respite program for care-
givers. The program is provid-
ed by two organizations, A
Special Time and Comfort
Connection.
The third featured pro-
gram is the Neighborhood
Environmental Stewardship
Team (NEST), a volunteer
organization that increases
awareness and advocates for
native habitats and water-
sheds in the community.
Sarasota County has
applied for the award the past
three years, and last year was
among the 30 finalists. This
year's finalist communities
are from across the country
from Washington State to
Florida and southern
California to Maine. Miami is
the only other Florida com-
munity in the list of finalists.

Theodor Seuss Geisel's (Seuss

great introduction to "making

because repeated reading, a

a challenge in most books.

SIE honor

society

STAFF REPORT
Marina Turner of Venice
was recently inducted into
Sigma' Iota Epsilon, an hon-
orary society in the manage-
ment department at Western
Washington University's Col-
lege of Business and Eco-
nomics.
Turner, who is the daugh-
ter of Chris Tsiokas of Venice
and Brian Turner of Imperial
Beach, Calif., was among 22
members inducted into the
society. She graduated -in
March with a concentration
in international business.
"With everything that we
see and interact with on a
daily basis having global ties, I
decided to focus on interna-
tional business because it is
all around me," Turner said.
"The professors and curricu-
lum for this major have given
me a very well-rounded edu-
cation and introduction to the
globalization and interna-
tionalization of our markets."
All of the new SIE members
are studying general business,
human resource manage-
ment, international business
and management.
WWU received its charter
for SIE in February 2005,
becoming the first public uni-
versity in the state to have
one.
"We wanted to provide
something to our best and
brightest students to make
them more successful as they
graduate and enter their
careers," said Matthew Liao-
Troth, SIE faculty adviser and
assistant professor of man-
agement.
"Through SIE we provide
regular presentations on ca-
reers and networking oppor-
tunities, and proactively link
these students with recruiters
in their field," he added. "At
our annual Distinguished Ex-
ecutive recognition luncheon
in Seattle, the students have


an opportunity to meet with
many of the successful alum-
ni of the department and the
college."
Each of the 22 students has
a GPA of 3.25 or higher with
no lower than a B in manage-
ment department classes, 45
credits from WWU and a
declared major in the depart-
ment.

According to Wikipedia,
"In May 1954 Life magazine
published a report on illitera-
cy among school children,
which concluded that chil-

read because their books
were boring.
"Accordingly, Seuss's pub-
lisher made up a list of 400
words he felt were important
and asked Dr. Seuss to cut the
list to 250 words and write a
book using only those words.
Nine months later, using only
220 words, Seuss came up
with "The Cat in the Hat."
This book was a tour de force.

"In 1960 (someone) bet Dr.
Seuss $50 that he couldn't
write an entire book using
only 50 words. The result iwas
"Green Eggs and Ham." These
books achieved significant
success and remain very pop-
ular with parents and teach-
ers alike."
Dr. Seuss books were creat-
ed to supplement the "look
say" reading programs taught
in schools, according to
Wikipedia, although later in
life he expressed regret at
being associated with the
"look say" reading method
adopted during the Dewey
revolt in the 1920s.
. "I think killing phonics was
one of the greatest causes of
illiteracy in the country;" Dr.
Seuss said.
