Chopper brings fi re relief from the sky


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
second in a series of articles on
the Sarasota County Sheriffs
Office Aviation Division. Next: a
look at the call log, and Jernigan
talks about catching bad guys
with the Bell 407.
BYTOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

This is wildfire season
and the Sarasota County
sheriff's Bell 407 helicopter
is a busy bird.
Its white belly tank, the
one everybody points at
when the chopper flies over-
head, holds 265 gallons of
water for fighting wildfires.
"We think it's (tank)
already paid for itself," said
Chuck Johnston, the Sara-
sota County Fire Depart-
ment's Wildfire Mitigation
Specialist. "We've had 17
fires this season, and we're
using about half the amount
of resources."
The fire department
bought the $180,000 "Sim-
plex Fire Attack Belly Tank"
for the sheriff's office.
"We catch fires so much
earlier with the helicopter
because the pilots spot
them," Johnston said. "You
know, when the fire doubles
in size, you don't just double
your resources, you have to
have four or five times the*
resources."
A 265-gallon tank may
not seem that useful in fight-
ing a wildfire, but it is.
"We use it for the initial
attack," Johnston said,
"when the fire is smalL".
Johnston put using the
helicopter versus using fire
hoses on the ground into
perspective.
"One of our hose lines puts
out between 50 and 100 gal-
lons per minute. Our trucks,
.depending on the size, hold
between 300 and 1,500 gal-
lons," Johnston said. 'And, we

SSUN HO IO BY JEFF- I AVARES
At a recent dem nstration, the sheriff's Bell 407 helicopter
clumps 265 gallons of water on a fire. The agency pur-
chased the 2005 chopper with all the bells and whistles,
including an infrared nose camera, last year for about $2
million.


can only touch tle fire on the
edges.
"The helicopter can see the
hot spots and drown it, and
nothing (water) vaporizes."
Shorter turnaround
Johnston said another


benefit of using the heli-
copter is a much shorter
turnaround time, that is,.
time between emptying the
tank and refilling it.
"If the water source is
close enough, the helicopter
could dump a load a min-


ute," Johnston said. "That's
the equivalent of four. hand
lines. It might take 10. or
more minutes for our tank-
ers to refill and get back."
Southwest Florida is go-
ing through a protracted dry
spell (the experts aren't call-
ing it a drought, yet), so
water is scarce.
Another plus for the heli-
copter is that if the fire is not
close to a water source, the
fire department can bring
the water to the fire.
"We have a portable tank,
like a small swimming pool,
that we can take to the fire
scene," Johnston said. "We
can fill it with our tankers or
even turn on the hydrants."
The helicopter then dips
the dangling hose into the
portable tank.
Intense business
The filling and dumping
operations require experi-
enced, confident, precision
flying. Chief pilot Sgt. Roger
Jernigan, 42, moves the
chopper's controls with a
surgeon's skill, smoothly co-
ordinating control sticks and
foot pedals.
His eyes dart from flight
to engine instruments and
his fingers throw switches
on the panel and the control
stick. Flying the helicopter
and filling the, belly tank is
intense business. A small
mistake, a miscalculation,
could prove disastrous.
"The 9-foot hose has a
3,00-gallon- per-minute
pump on the end of it,"
Jernigan, said. "We hover 5
feet over the water and sub-
merge the pump. It takes 40
seconds to fill the tank."
Then he flies to the fire.
The tank has doors that
run the length of the tank.
The pilot opens the doors
with a switch on the cyclic

Waterford's North Venice plans unveiled


The cost of the project
is estimated at more
than $320 million, and
it includes at least 160
apartment units and
New Urbanism themes.


BY JJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


Many community mem-
bers have been calling for city
officials to embrace New
Urbanism principles.
Residents are about to
receive a strong dose of that
in Waterford president Mike
Miller's latest project, accord-
ing to Venice City Manager,
Marty Black.
Initial design plans for The
Renaissance in North Venice
were submitted to the city last
week. If approved, the 73-acre
project at Knights Trail and
Laurel Road would bring an
1,800-seat movie theater, the
city's first new rental housing
development in 25 years and
295,000 square feet of com-
mercial-retail space.
Black and Planning and
Zoning Director Tom Slaught-
er hailed the proposal as cap-
turing the "true intent" of city
design and architectural stan-
dards.


THE RENAISSANCE
Waterford Companies has
submitted plans for its 73-acre
commercial-residential project
in North Venice. Here are the
highlights;
Estimated cost $320 mil-
lion
Commercial 295,000
square feet that includes an
1,800-seat movie theater,
three restaurants and two
banks.
Residential 808 living
units, with at least 160 dedi-
cated as rental housing. This
would be the first new apart-
ment buildings built within
city limits in 25 years.
Timeline City staff has not
begun to review the applica-
tion. The soonest it could
come before the Venice
Planning Commission is lae
July.

Also included is a pedestri-
an grid system that "far ex-
ceeds" city codes and inter-
,connects with neighboring
properties.
All of this matches up with
New Urbanism design princi-
ples, the city manager said,
including a more intensive
development that has 808
total living units and an esti-
mated 2,400 parking spaces.


"It reflects a lot of the New
Urbanist principles, the
whole layout and design, with
the mix of uses within the
buildings.... My only concern
is whether the community
will embrace this idea."
City staff has not reviewed
the design plans. The soonest
it could come before Venice
Planning Commission is late
July, according to Slaughter.
Intensity and affordability
Waterford has a- goal of
making at least 20 percent of
the living units 160 apart-
ments rental housing start-
ing as low $500 a month for
efficiencies. If Miller follows
through on this, it would be
the first rental development
built within city limits since
1982.
Developers. claim it's too
expensive to build rental
units, but Miller said it makes
good business sense for his
project because he's creating
a place for service industry
workers to live. They'd also be
within walking distance of
their jobs or even the indus-
trial park along the western
side of Knights Trail Road.
"There's about 300,000
square feet of commercial
space and 800 units," Miller

County: Theaters


meet fire code


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER


Frank's Theatres Galleria
12 movie theaters have been a
boon to local film buffs, who
have been without a movie
theater nearby since Septem-
ber 2004. However, a number
of patrons have left the build-
ing wondering if the theaters
comply with the fire code.
The major concern, as
indicated by numerous calls
to the Gondolier Sun's Let'em
Have It line, is that in many of
the theaters there is only one
stairwell into and out of the
rows of seats. Callers have
questioned whether an audi-
enice member at the end of
one of the rows would be able
to exit safely in case of a fire.
Upon inspection of the
theater, seven of the 11 the-
aters in operation at Frank's
have only one stairwell. Four
have two.
"Many patrons complain

One after another, nearly a
dozen Harbor Lights stepped
up to the microphone Tues-
day and asked Venice City
Council for its opinion on the
proposed dock at Venice
Fisherman's Wharf.
And again and again,
council members said it was-
n't their any of their business.
The four-year battle over
the floating dock in next to
Hatchett Creek and the In-
tracoastal Waterway contin-
ues. Sarasota County com-
missioners will reconsider the
dock proposal May 23.
Wharf owner John Ko-
necnik's building permits ex-
pired earlier this year follow-
ing four extensions.
City council was highly
criticized two years ago when


it failed to issue any opinion
on the wharf's floating dock.
Despite being within city lim-
its, Sarasota County has juris-
diction on all dock approvals.
Harbor Lights residents
who oppose the dock be it
the previously approved 415
feet or the proposed 686 feet
full-length version wanted
council members to take a
stand, but much like two
years ago, they said it wasn't
their place.
"It seems to me like we're
getting into something out-
side of our jurisdiction.... We
don't have a dog in the fight,"
council member Bill Willson
said Tuesday.

bers assured residents they

The bay water quality improving


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


. In its first report on the
water quality of Sarasota Bay
in six years, the National
Estuary Program announced
significant improvement.
The 56-mile estuary
stretches from Venice Inlet
north to Anna Maria Sound.
Sarasota Bay was designat-
ed as ,an Estuary of National'
Significance in 1987 by the
U.S. Congress. But it isrft real-
ly an estuary.
An estuary is formed when


fresh water mixes with salty
water from the sea. The bay is
really a coastal lagoon with a
unique ecological mix of
small creeks, coves and inlets,
according to the estuary pro-
gram's Sarasota office.
Improved water quality
has been brought about in
part by the growth of 593
acres of seagrass and the
improvement of about 3,465
acres of seagrass on the bay's
bottom from a "patchy" state
to denser continuous beds.
More than 6.3 square miles of
significantly improved habi-.
- * ,' - ..Ti' T


tat has been created as a con-
sequence
This was reported by SBEP
in its State of the Bay 2006,
issued late last month.
Seagrass on the bottom of the
bay is often torn up and
packed hard by dredging and
fill projects.
More than a half million
people living in the area use
the waters for recreation and
business. According to SBEP,
50 water-dependent indus-
tries, of which tourism is the
largest, are supported by
Sarasota.Ba.v -
. ,, *'- 1.7,, '* * .


The April report disclosed
that Roberts Bay in Nokomis
and Blackburn Bay in Osprey
are among impaired bodies of
water flowing into the bay. A'
higher standard for chloro-
phyll, which indicates agae
production and water clarity,
is responsible for designating
the two bays as impaired.
SBEP is in a partnership
with Sarasota and Manatee
counties, Sarasota, Brad-
enton and Longboat Key, the

Visits to the chiropractor, with good
Reason: Research shows that
S* chiropractic treatment is effective in
relieving low-back pain. However, at the acute
onset of such pain due to back spasms, it is not
always feasible to make a quick trip to the
chiropractor. If you find yourself in this
uncomfortable condition, one immediate step
you can take to help relieve the ache begins with
lying on your back on a bed or the floor, then
gently bending your knees toward your chest.
Hold this position for 30 seconds. Repeat, until
pain begins to subside. This exercise helps stretch
muscles as well as relax spasms.
) Back pain is a symptom that can arise from many
causes. Many cases of back pain are caused by
stresses on the muscles and ligaments that support
the spine. Back pain is as much a part of the human
condition as the common cold.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER,
we readily understand the problems involved in back
pain. We can help alleviate specific conditions and
also help improve overall health and well being by
improving the body's innate ability to heal itself.
Please call 941-412-3800 to schedule an
appointment for superior chiropractic care. We're
located at 1214-C Venice Ave. East. We offer

Sociologist: Use fear as evacuation tool


BY BRIAN GLEASON
STAFF WRITER

Mandatory hurricane
evacuation orders prompt
such a low percentage of resi-
dents of vulnerable areas to
leave, some are suggesting
emergency officials should try
to scare people into leaving.
"One thing we can do is to
make them appreciate what
storms can do to their
homes," said Dr. Jay Baker, a
sociologist at Florida State
University and one of the
nation's ranking experts on
emergency response. "Telling
people specific results is bet-
ter than simple evacuation
orders. We need to make
them understand how horri-
ble it will be to be in their
house with the water at a cer-
tain height. People need to be
more afraid if they live in
these areas than they are
now."
Baker presented the find-
ings of his study of Floridians'
behavioral responses to evac-
uation orders during the 2004
and 2005 hurricane seasons
at the Governor's Hurricane
Conference Thursday.
He suggested that playing
recordings of 9-1-1 calls to
emergency operations cen-
ters from panicked or strand-

ed residents might persuade
more people to evacuate. As
provocative as that sounds,
the soft-spoken academic
said his goal is to save lives.
"I'm surprised how many,
people think we have the
evacuation problem solved in
Florida," said Baker, whose
study,was commissioned by
the Federal .Emergency
Management Agency and the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
"When we have only half the
people evacuate in danger
zones, we're just setting our-
selves up for what happened'
in Louisiana with Katrina."
On the line
The National Hurricane
Center's new hurricane pre-
paredness kit recommenda-
tion adds an inadvertent
exclamation point to Baker's
scary suggestion: The NHC\
now suggests adding an axe
- for chopping through
rooftops to the list of sup-
plies residents should have in
preparation for a storm.
Scenes of New Orleans res-
idents hacking routes to
rooftops and harrowing sto-
ries of victims trapped in
attics prompted the addition.
Focusing on survey
respondents in Category 1
hurricane zones, Baker found


Recycle this


that despite blanket media
coverage of Hurricane
Charley and subsequent hur-
ricanes, 63 percent of respon-
dents in Souchwest Florida
said they never heard an'
evacuation order. Only 32
percent who did hear an
evacuation order obeyed it.,
Baker and other officials
here believe the low response
rates are due to the public's
ongoing fixation with the line
'in hurricane forecast charts
that depicts the expected
track. Despite frequent dis-
claimers that the actual track
could vary as much as 85
miles over 24 hours, the line
drives behavior, Baker said.
National Hurricane Center
Director Max Mayfield's
mantra the past several years
has been "don't focus on that
skinny black line" on hurri-
cane forecast charts.
"I'd like it engraved on my
tombstone," he joked during
a Wednesday review of the
2005 hurricane season that
included superstorms
Katrina, Rita andWilma.
Graphic details
But even preoccupation
with the black line doesn't
prompt as many people to
evacuate as emergency offi-
cial would hope. Baker found

The record-breaking 2005

Forecasters and emer-
gency management officials
will have a new tool to edu-
cate residents in hurricane
zones this season, which
begins June 1. A new color-
coded graphic will depict the
chances of storm-force winds


affecting various areas within
the cone of probability,
Mayfield said.
The information has been
available in past years, but
only in a hard-to-fathom
spreadsheet format. After
being tested on an experi-
mental basis in recent years,
the new graphic will be part of
the official forecasts this sea-
son.

Despite rumors, Preschool in the Pines to remain open


Difficulties in obtaining insurance coverage
nearly doom Venice Presbyterian's day care
program.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Almost a year after the
state attorney's office de-
clined to pursue charges of
child abuse against employ-
ees of a local day care center,
rumors started circulating
that Preschool in the Pines
would be closing its, doors
because it couldn't get liabili-
ty insurance.
It was nip and tuck until
Friday afternoon. Some par-
ents had already been told by
staff the school would close
its doors June 9.
But Pastor Christopher
Romig put those rumors to
rest late Friday when he


announced the good news:
the preschool would remain
open.
Unable to obtain insur-
ance coverage since coming
under investigation for alleg-
ed nonsexual child abuse a
year and a half ago, the facili-
ty received assurances from
insurance providers it would
be able to obtain the neces-
sary coverage to stay in busi-
ness, Rornig said.
"We've had some insur-
ance challenges ever since we
were notified (our coverage
was dropped). After the news
we heard today, they have
assured us that it is available.
Preschool in the Pines is
remaining open," Romig said.


Romig said the school has
had an outpouring of assis-
tance from the community,
from parents, from Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice, even from members
within the insurance com-
munity.
"It has been really com-
forting to know that people
are rallying around the pre-
school," he said.
Bill killed
Formerly called the Early
Childhood Center, the school
was the target of an investiga-
tion that began in October
2004 over complaints that
centered around "jacking," or
lifting and dropping or slam-
ming children to the floor as a
form of discipline.
Venice Police Department
filed 29 complaints in March
2005 against two then-cur-
rent and four former employ-


ees ofECC orVPC for the state
attorney's office to consider.
But charges were never filed.
The assistant state attor-
ney in charge of the case
wrote a memorandum stat-
ing his conclusion that there
was insufficient corroborat-
ing evidence to support the
charges, In those instances in
which there was enough evi-
dence, he wrote, it was ques-
tionable whether the conduct
met the legal definition of
abuse in Florida.
Parents of a number of
children who attended ECC
filed lawsuits over the alleged
abuse. (The standard of proof
in a civil suit is less stringent
than in a criminal prosecu-
tion.)
Among the charges were
force feeding until one child
vomited and physical injury
at the hands of other children
at the direction of teachers.


Lawsuits charge the abuse
took place from 2002-05 in
the classrooms of Kari Harris
and Joy Gill. Both were fired
by ECC for misconduct.
Rep. Nancy Detert intro-
duced legislation changing
the definition of child abuse
to include "inappropriate or
excessively harsh corporal
discipline of a child by a par-
ent, legal custodian or care-
giver" but it failed to pass dur-
ing the last-minute crush of
bills as the session ended. It
would have made the crimi-
,nal, code match the family
.code definition, which clearly
proscribes inappropriate or
excessively harsh discipline.
History
Before being hit with the
allegations, the school en-
joyed a reputation as being
one of the best and one of the
few' large-scale preschool


operations in the area that
enrolls infants.
The Pines currently enrolls
141 preschool children. It was
founded back in 1961 as the
Presbyterian Day School and
has undergone several name
changes over its 45 years in
business.
Prior to the allegations, the
preschool received a $476,000
grant from Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice to expand its care for
32 additional infants. The
additional care was in high
demand in South County
since less than a handful pro-
vide infant care.
Preschool in the Pines
director Cheryl Dillenbeck
was unavailable for com-
ment.

School concurrency agreement delayed due to requirement changes


The state makes a last-minute requirement to
add charter schools into the mix, but allows the
district to use the measure of school capacity it
prefers.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


The Sarasota County
School Board and area gov-
ernments have agreed to
extend a deadline to come up
with a draft Interlocal Agree-
ment that includes a school
facilities planning element.
They made the decision
Friday morning during a con-
vocation of local school gov-
ernments, held at Venice
Community Center.
Sarasota County is one of
six school districts participat-
ing in a pilot program to
implement concurrency rules
well in advance of the 2008
deadline.


Each pilot district was ex-
pected to write a draft inter-
local agreement with munici-
palities that addresses school
capacity by June, but last
minute developments put a
snag in that plan.
The state Department of
Community Affairs will now
have to wait another month.
The boards agreed to extend
the deadline from June 1 to
July 3.
The delay was partly due to
a disagreement between the
county and school board over
a rural designation about
where schools can be built.
Language in the draft inter-
local agreement included a
county stipulation that pf'i-


hibits building schools in
areas that are designated
rural. But the county agreed
to pull policy 1.2.2 from the
interlocal agreement for fur-
ther study.
At least for the time being,
that cleared one major hurdle
to adopting a revised inter-
local agreement.
DCA acquiesces
There was also disagree-
ment over the definition of
school capacity. District con-
sultants said the DCA re-
quired "Florida Inventory of
School Houses" capacity,
while the school board want-
ed to use "program capacity,"
which it says is a more realis-
tic view of how schools are
utilized.
The other five pilot dis-
tricts have agreed to use FISH
capacity, but this week DCA
relented 'to Sarasota County
School Board's request to use


program capacity, as long as
the district is able to calculate
accurate data, something that
it hasn't done yet.
"DCA felt with the other
pilots using FISH capacity, it
might be good for one of the
pilots to use an alternative
method of calculating capaci-.
ty," said associate superinten-
dent Bob Earley.
Consultant Susan Trevar-
then, a government attorney
from Fort Lauderdale, said it
really didn't matter which
methodology the district us-
ed, since they're both adjust-
able.
"It's like the difference be-
tween using the metric sys-
tem and U.S. measurements.
They're both valid ways of
measuring the same thing,"
Trevarthen said.
"Other school boards
around the state have also
sought to use program capac-
iy. I think th.y like to use'pro-


gram capacity because it
more closely resembles the
way they do things now," she
added.
... then adds charters
, To complicate matters, on
Slay 11 DCA officials changed
their mind about another
issue. They informed the
school district charter schools
would now be required to be
included in the agreement.
Consultants and D1CA offi-
cials admit they will have to
work through myriad ques-
tions about how to accom-
plish the task.
Including charter schools
could mean that schools
wouldn't have to build as
much or as early, and could
affect concurrency rules that
trigger mitigation by develop-
ers.
DC\ is also asking school
districts to, strengthen pol,-
cies designed"to. rfim ze
1. 1- .. _ft ^ 4- ,- ..'


capacity at each school.
"DCA is eager to see in
writing .a, .policy that maxi-
mizes capacity," Trevarthen
said. "It's being sought before
mitigation (can be pursued)."
New law requires local
governments to adopt a pub-
lic school facilities element
into interlocal agreements,
and may require residential
developers to set aside lands
for future schools, or provide
other financial consideration.

said. "You're spreading out all
the cost on everything except
the rental units. You're basi-
cally subsidizing your rental
units."
Condominiums also
would be sold for less than
$250,000, with one-bedroom
units starting at $150,000,
Miller said, with more on the
way.
Neither the zoning or
design plans have been sub-
mitted, but Miller wants to
build a grocery shopping cen-
ter on the south side of Laurel
Road that includes another
large set of rental units.
Waterford does not have a
timeline for when it will apply
for this.
The Renaissance also
includes three restaurants,
two banks, five retail build-
ings, eight office buildings
and a parking lot designed to
double as an outdoor festival-
concert venue. There would
also be a 120-unit hotel and a
parking lot dedicated to the
new Habitat for Humanity
project and Venice YMCA
building being built next door
on city property.
The city manager praised
the development's architec-
ture as capturing "old-style"
Italian themes, something
Black felt has been lacking in
recent developments.
"That's nice," Miller said of
the compliment. "The thing
I'm most proud of is the archi-
tects, though you don't always
hear about them. People don't
know the individuals who put
their heart and soul into this,
to make it look like this."
W hat about the island?
If it's approved, Miller esti-
mates the $320-million pro-
ject will take a decade to com-
plete. The residential compo-
nent would be built at a rate
of about 120 units per year.
All of this talk has left some
to wonder if Miller has aban-
doned redevelopment plans
on Venice island. Waterford
faced stiff opposition from
residents for his proposed
entertainment-retail-residen-
tial project next to his
Waterfront towers and bor-
dered by'U.S. 41 Business,
Venice Avenue Bridge and the
Intracoastal Waterway.
After five months of
silence, Waterford plans to
resubmit a scaled-down ver-
sion by the end of this month.
The rezoning application was
withdrawn in December, and
Miller asked for a city council
workshop to discuss redevel-
opment options on the high-
profile 3.5 acres next to down-
town.
The plans are still being
reworked, but the buildings
will be shorter in order to sat-
isfy community complaints.
In exchange, however, the
public parking garage has
been eliminated. The restau-
rant and hotel will still be a
part of the project.
"We've shrunk it .down,
broke it into four buildings
and hope to get that out to
(city council) Workshop by
July," Miller said.

DOCK from Page "IA


would speak up, and county
officials said they welcomed
the city's opinion.
But as of Tuesday's council
meeting, City Manager Marty
Black said county staff had
not completed its report and
there was not enough infor-
mation for council members
to form an opinion.
When questioned why
council cannot at least say if it
likes the "idea" of a dock at
Venice Fisherman's Wharf,
the city manager said it al-
ready has.
"Our presumption is, the
(previously approved) 415-foot
dock meets county standards


and that's why it was ap-
proved," Black said. 'At this
time, nothing indicates other-
wise. ... No council person, in
either meetings or my personal
conversations with them, has
suggested opposition."
Adding on that extra 271
feet of dock Konecnik wants
is another issue, however,
Black said.
Without a complete report
from county staff, it is inap-
propriate for city council to
issue an opinion on a county
decision.
"It sounds like a cop-out, I
know, but we're obligated to
give this a fair hearing," Black
said.


Continuance?
County commissioner
Shannon Staub was sorry to
hear that no opinion was
issued by city council. She
understood its position of not
wanting to render opinions
without a full analysis of the
facts.
Staub verified late Friday
that a complete packet was
hand-delivered to Venice City
Hall, but it could be too late,
since council's next meeting
is the same day as the dock
hearing with county commis-
sioners May 23.
One idea Staub had was for
the city to send a representa-
tive and request a continu-
ance so council members


could review the final county
report.
"The thing is, you want
input from as many people as
you can," Staub said. "That's
the only option I can think of,
and it seems to make sense to
, me."
The wharf owner actually
has two applications going to
commissioners, one. for the
original 415-foot floating
dock and a second one for the
686-foot version. Konecnik is
not guaranteed reapproval of
his original permit.
Sarasota County only ap-
proves the dock itself, while
all other constriction ap-
proval rests with the city. The
only pending city application


is for a basic building permit
that accompanies the floating
dock.
While there's been plenty
of talk, there are no applica-
tions for the condominium
project Konecnik has said he
needs to pay for expanding
public access to the dock.

CODE from Page 1 A


for Fire Marshal Jane Ross,
who is on maternity leave.
Whenever a complaint is
made to the fire department,
it must be investigated by
someone like Damron. The
fire department was most
recently at Frank's on May 4
to investigate the individual
stairwells in the theaters.
Damron has been out to
Frank's three times respond-
ing to complaints about the
stairwell access in the majori-
ty of Frank's theaters. Every
time he visits the theaters, he
finds them to be compliant
with fire code.
Deciphering the code
Inspectors like Damron
abide by a state-approved
guide called the Florida Fire
Prevention Code. The code
book that is primarily used in


cases like Frank's is National
Fire Protection Association
NFPA 101, or the Life Safety
Code. (For sprinkler systems,
fire marshals adhere to NFPA
Code 25.)
The NFPA code is adopted
by states nationwide and is
also used in foreign countries.
NFPA 101 is full of calcula-
tions to determine what is
safe. Therefore, there is no
way for people to visually de-
termine what is safe by fire
code standards.
However, there is nothing
in the code book about how
many aisles a theater or simi-
lar venue must have. Theater
safety is determined -through
a calculation of several deter-
mining factors, including
how much space there is from
the farthest point in the stair-
well to the point where traffic


becomes free-flowing, mean-
ing where people do not have
to follow one stream of traffic
- a choice can ,be made
between going left or right.
Roughly, there must be no
more than about 75 feet from
the farthest point in the stair-
well to the point of free-flow-
ing traffic. But if there is more
than 75 feet, the code does
not dictate that a stairwell be
added, just that the point of
free-flowing traffic be closer
to a stairwell. A theater may
choose to add an additional
stairwell to access the rows of
seats to accomplish that.
The code requires 12 inch-
es between the front of one
seat to the back of the seat in
front of it if there are 14 or
fewer chairs in the row. For
every chair more than 14 in
the row, .3 inches must be


added per chair between the
rows. Stairwells must be 22
inches wide for every 100
people.
Comfort level
Damron was said the code
does not take into considera-
tion comfort or convenience.
Therefore, ease of access to
certain seats is not a concern
of the fire department, but of
the theater's management
company.
Damron is confident that
people are safe in Frank's the-
aters despite the single stair-
well in seven of them.
- "Frank's has an excellent
sprinkler system," he said.
A sprinkler system is prob-
ably the most effective way to
save lives in any public arena,
according to Damron.
The response time of the


sprinkler system is roughly 30
seconds, followed by an
alarm. When the temperature
in a public area reaches 150-
160 degrees, the sprinklers
will automatically turn on.
In a space with an 8-foot
ceiling, a small wastepaper bas-
ket fire can activate the sprin-
klers in about one minute.
According to NFPA Code
25, the sprinkler systems
must be checked by the fire
department annually.
Although the theaters are
built to code, the manage-
ment company that runs
Frank's Theaters is reviewing
the complaints to determine
if changes are needed. There
is currently no timeline for
any changes.

Parents passing on pre-K program


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER
With-only three weeks until
its doors open, Florida's Vol-
untary Prekindergarten Sum-
mer Program is still severely
under enrolled.
Whether it's by design or
poor planning, the program
apparently isn't meeting the
needs of the vast majority of
parents.
The state originally pro-
jected a 60-percent participa-
tion rate in Sarasota County,
or 1,700 kids. But parents
have only registered 110 chil-
dren. That's a 4-percent regis-
tration rate.
School administrators say
the same kind of turnout can
be seen throughout Florida.
In Sarasota County, 13
school sites were originally
slated to carry the VPK pro-
gram, but that's been cut back
to three. Tuttle Elementary
has 40 enrolled in North
County; Lakeview Element-
ary, also in Sarasota, is serving
as the central county loca-
tion, with 40 enrolled; and
Toledo Blade Elementary has
30 preregistered in South
County.
Why the poor turnout?
First and foremost, parents
say the lack of a before- or
after-care program is a major
inconvenience. Lack of early
drop-off, and a mid-after-
noon pickup time, isn't con-
venient for parents who work
8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Others say the school day,
which runs from 8 a.m. until
3:40 p.m., is too long for 4-
and 5-year-olds.
School board member
Laura Benson is worried
about the long preschool day.
"Not even our elementary
students go to school for that
length of time," she said. "The


PHOTO COURTESY OF EARLY LEARNING COALITION OF SARASOTA COUNTY.
VPK's summer program has lots of openings, but the school
year program, which begins in August, is filling up quickly.


kids must go into shock."
John Zoretich, executive
director of elementary educa-
tion, said length of the day is a
key issue for parents, and a
deterrent in some districts.
Shortcomings
Benson is also concerned
with the lack of teachers
trained in early childhood
education who staff the VPK
programs.
"It (early childhood certifi-
cation) may not be legally
required," Benson said, "but
it's not entirely appropriate
(not to have teachers certified
in early learning) either."
Zoretich said the district
plans on hiring two teachers
per classroom and hopefully
will have an elementary certi-
fied teacher in each class-
room.
Summer pre-K school pro-
,grams begin Tuesday, May 30,
and run through Friday, July


28 (closed July 4th).
Another reason parents are
staying away is the lack of bus
transportation. Parents are
responsible for bringing their
child to and from school.
Another rule precludes
some special-needs children
from enrolling. Children re-
quiring ESE services are not
eligible.
Challenges
VPK rules may also play a
role. The district parent hand-
book states parents must
abide by VPK pickup rules or
suffer the consequences, like
paying late arrival fees of $1
per minute after dismissal
time (payable at pick up).
If a child is absent for more
than five days, enrollment
can be canceled.
Linda Mason, director of
Child Care Connection of
Sarasota, a program of the
Early Learning Coalition of


Sarasota County that runs the
county VPK program, said
attendance policies are treat-
ed liberally.
"This is first time districts
are offering the summer pro-
gram," Mason said. "We have
a few private providers who
may or may not offer after-
care. But most students will
be accommodated through
the district."
Mason said she is looking
forward to getting feedback
on the VPK summer program
and implementing improve-
ments to the program next
year.
"We understand the chal-
lenges that parents have to
work through (to enroll),"
Mason said.
She has high hopes par-
ents will be able to take ad-
vantage of the program.
Sign up
Janet Kahn, executive
director of the Early Learning
Coalition, is encouraging all
parents to take advantage of
the program.
"VPK is a program all par-
ents should know about and
all 4-year-old children should
be a part of," she said. "The
program offers every child the
opportunity to attend a pre-
school program free, so that
they will enter kindergarten
ready to learn."
Children who go to a VPK
program are better prepared,
she said, because they've had
a chance to be part of a group,
to learn how to share and take
turns, to begin learning let-
ters and numbers, to enjoy
books and puzzles, to play
with other children.
Children can attend either
the 540-hour school year VPK
program or the summer 300-
hour program, but not both.
The school year program


runs August to May. The sum-
mer VPK program is in ses-
sion the end of May through
July.
Any child who was 4 years
old on or before Sept. 1, 2005,
and has not already attended
a VPK program is eligible for
the summer VPK program.
. Any child who was 4 years
old on or before Sept. 1, 2006,
is eligible for the 2006-07
school year VPK program.
Parents can enroll their
children into the program at
any time throughout the
summer.
Besides running the VPK
program, the Early Learning
Coalition's Child Care Con-
nection helps parents and
families by offering informa-


tion on child development
and behavior (such as toilet
training, sleeping, feeding, or
tantrums). It helps parents
find the right place for their
child when looking for child
care, and provides scholar-
ships for child care to families
who quality. The coalition
also offers assistance to par-
ents in finding services for
children with special needs.

learn more about VPK, con-
tact the Early Learning Co-
alition at 556-1600, Ext. 112.
Parents who would like to reg-
ister in Venice or North Port
should call 486-2682, Ext.112.

Insurance rates not controlled by gravity


I f you have received your latest home
insurance bill, you probably have expe-
rienced the same sticker shock thou-
sands of other Floridians have. Your premi-
ums are up, and not just a little, but in some
cases significantly.
In this case, what has gone up is very
unlikely to come down.
At a small workshop in Tallahassee last
month a not-so-rosy picture was painted
regarding insurance rates by Kevin McCarty,
the head of Florida's Office of Insurance
Regulation. He said, "I don't want to disillu-
sion you in any way, but we're not returning
anytime soon to a reversal in insurance pre-
miums."
That's no wonder after two years of hurri-
cane destruction that topped out at $35 bil-
lion in insured losses. That is easy enough to
understand, but even if we had not experi-
enced the catastrophe that we did in Florida,


rates still could be higher.
Insurance companies also have to pay
insurance claims for tornadoes in Oklahoma
and typhoons in Japan. If insurance compa-
nies experience an especially bad year of luck
with all manner of disasters taking place,
then they must find ways to recover their
losses which usually means premium
increases for policyholders.
Last week, the Legislature approved $715
million to shore up Citizens Property
Insurance Corp., the state's insurer of last
resort, which recently took over thousands of
new policies from financially strapped Poe
Co. of Tampa.
Citizens, however, is already running a
$1.7 billion deficit thanks to hurricane-relat-
ed claims last year, so even that infusion of
cash will not prevent large increases in pre-


miums.
According to


McCarty and Leslie Chap-


man-Henderson, a member of the Senate-
created Task Force On Long-Term Solutions
For Florida's Hurricane Insurance Market,
there is .a way to get premiums reduced -
build homes that are storm-hardened.
We believe there would be a huge market
for a home builder who specialized in build-
ing only storm-hardened dwellings. This
would require a mind-shift for prospective
home buyers.
Would you rather own a home that's going
to be there after the storm or one with that
larger-than-life pool and an extra hot tub in
the master bathroom? Would you rather
have to make only a few minor repairs after a
hurricane or start completely over replacing
your destroyed home?
Future homes could be constructed to
withstand winds of up to 200 mph. Catholic
Charities is doing just that with its Casa San
Juan Bosco migrant worker community in


DeSoto County. It's a matter of choice.
Maybe we don't get that large home with
the pool. Maybe we get that large home with-
out the pool and spend the pool money on
storm-hardening features instead.
Chapman-Henderson said that on a typi-
cal Citizens policy, adding storm-hardening
features to a home could save the homeown-
er as much as 40 percent on insurance pre-
miums.
One statement McCarty made is a bit
chilling. He observed that the only other
alternative to high insurance rates is the
California solution.
"In California," he said, "insurance poli-
cies don't cover earthquakes."
So for now we will have to grin and bear it,
or in this case, "grin and pay it." Because
none of us wants to see the California solu-
tion applied to hurricane insurance coverage
in Florida.


A big loss



for Venice

A large group of friend
and associates gathered Tues
day either at the last cit
council Mayor Dean Cala
maras presided over or at
mild roast held right afte
given in his honor at th
Venice Community Center.
It was a fun event fille
with accolades and a fev
barbs.
There were many greE
presenters. John Simmonds
city council member, was sui
prisingly the funniest. He sai
he has been in government
service for years and year
and has seen and work
with a lot of good mayors. H
went on to say he had me
mayors from all over th
country and he wanted Dea
to know, he was one of then
(Of course, everyone though
he was going to sayhe was th
best he had ever seen c
worked with, or some suc
platitude.)
Kathy Dailey, who is th
assistant city manager i:
Punta Gorda and was former
ly the assistant city manage
in Venice when Dean was o:
city council and mayor, gav
10 reasons he will be glad h
moved to Georgia. One c
them was that the newspaper
there doesn't have a Let'er
Have It line and another wa
they don't have our taxpayer
league.
Maggie Turner had en
large a picture of Dea:
dressed in women's clothes
which he did as part of
cross-dressing fashion shove
to benefit the hospital. Whe:
it was my turn I mention
that a lady in the audience a
the fashion show was wearing
the exact same outfit.
Fire Chief Mike Johnsoi
presented Dean a firefighter
hat to commemorate all th
fires he has put out over his 1
years and in case he encoun
tered any more.
Benny Weaver, a member
.of the planning commission
was funny, especially when h
talked about how Dea
would soon be talking funnm
like he does (Benny has tha
Carolina southern drawl).
Merle Graser, former may


or, and City Manager Marty
Black were both kind and
pretty much laid off parting
Shots. Marty did mention
9 how occasionally he reached
Dean with a problem while he
was on a roof and he was con-
cerned he might fall off.
Dean's secretary, Assistant
Deputy Clerk Linda Depew,
told a few inside stories on
Dean and presented, with
:Paminjohnson, a nice Glyde.i
'Butcher picture from all em-
ployees.
Is President of Sertoma and
s- Venice City Attorney Bob An-
y derson gave Dean the club's
i- Service to Mankind award for
a all of his contributions to help
r, the citizens of the city.
e I mentioned that under
Dean's watch the city was rec-
d, ognized as the No. 1 destina-
w tion to retire in the country, at
which point I asked why in
at the heck he is moving.
s, Simmonds repeatedly com-
r- mented "Decatur, Ga. how
d could you pick that over
it Venice?"
rs I spent some time recount-
d ing projects that he had some
e role in. I mentioned beach
at renourishment, a new com-
e munity center, new parks,
n new pier, new roads and
i. bridges, even jabbing him
it about one of them being
e pink. I further mentioned the
ir remodeling of the railroad
h station and the great work on
the Venetian Waterway Park.
e Also I talked about how
n Dean had a demeanor that
r- was very special. He was very
,r professional and ran the
n meetings expeditiously, fairly
e and openly. He handled peo-
e ple who were very negative
Af with great aplomb.
r He carried out his duties
n with a very human side to
is him as he represented the city
rs in all the public events. He
has the great parade smile
1- even when he isn't in a parade
n and at events such as helping
s, to open new facilities and
a businesses. He certainly help-
w ed businesses like the hospi-
n tal and Tervis Tumbler.
d He and his wife, Barbara,
it have a huge love of animals,
g and the Paw Park on the
beach was one thing Dean
n helped make happen, as well
's as other pet friendly parks.
e This park has drawn people
7 from quite a distance as it is
i- the only place in our area
people can walk with their
*r animals on the beach.
', It was my feeling that the
e park should be named after
n Dean and Barbara, not only
y, for helping make it happen
it but also for their involvement

Class-size amendment still needed
ClaSS-Size amendment stil needed


Editor:
Some state representatives are claiming voters were unin-
formed about the unintended consequences of the class-size
initiative, such as associated costs and teacher shortages, and
that the amendment is not doable, thus it should be repealed.
The state's lack of an accurate formula to measure true
classroom space is the real problem.
FISH, Florida's Inventory of School Houses, is used by the
state to calculate student capacity of schools. FISH and pro-
gram capacity show vast discrepancies in true available class-
room space.
FISH takes into consideration ALL available space at a
school even if it is not for classroom use, such as cafeterias,
media centers, large band rooms, labs etc. This is not a correct
assessment of how much class space there is in a school.
One only has to look at any of our schools to see the many
portables abounding. The FISH formula says those schools
have not met capacity yet.
Currently, many high school classes are held in cafeterias
and media centers, and those rooms are not conducive to
learning. Additionally, many teachers do not have permanent
classrooms and they are forced to "float" from one classroom
to another.
Those things do have a direct impact on learning and effi-
ciency. Until the state comes up with a more honest formula to
measure student capacity in schools, voters should demand
that the class-size initiative stay in place.

Wharf plans are
good for Venice
Editor:
To the man who wrote the
letter to the editor about
Fisherman's Wharf and the
docks: Obviously, he needs to
get the facts straight.
First of all, improving the
wharf will increase the prop-
erty value to everything
around it including Harbor
Lights. We have family at
Harbor Lights and we are for
the improvements.
The city and county need
to get with it and approve
John Konecnik's plan. We


need more dock areas and it
would be nice to look at.
People in Venice should
venture out to Sarasota. We go
to Marina Jack's and it is very
nice seeing all the boats, etc.
The view is great.
As far as noise, most of the
40-plus-foot boats will not be
venturing out in the dark;
apparently this man doesn't
know all the details.
Marker 4 is a great restau-
rant and the owner has fixed
it up tremendously from what
it used.to be.
As far as threats, I doubt it.
It's the truth. I know of some


people in Harbor Lights who
all they do is complain about
something. If you don't like it,
move. You are across from a
commercial area.
We hope Mr. Konecnik gets
what he wants, but with most
people in this town it may be
hopeless. Venice residents, I
think, are ready for the grave-
yard.
Remember, my family and
I love Marker 4, but it won't be
there long, thanks to Venice.

Greed is doing us in
Editor:
Huge bonuses for CEOs
that are feeding off the wind-
fall profits from skyrocketing
gasoline prices. Shameful!
Raising the price of gas
each morning by 1, 2 and 3
cents. Shameful!
Placing our country and
our working people in such
jeopardy from their greed.
Shameful!
Getting major tax breaks
from our government to pro-
mote this sort of behavior.
Even more shameful!
Tax these windfall profits
and return the money to the
consumer.
Stop the outrageous greed
that is killing this nation. Stop
it before it is too late.

How about a bit
of direction?
Editor:
May 9, at approximately 3
p.m., I was not able to exit
Venice island by way of the
Circus Bridge to get to the


YMCA in time for a class.
Traffic was backed up and
slowly moving across the
bridge. This time it was not
because of a bridge malfunc-
tion. It was a Hazmat situa-
tion.
Once over the bridge, I was
again unable to cross 41
because of another traffic jam
due to a flashing red light.
Here is a suggestion: When
there is a situation that pre-
vents exiting the island, could
we please have patrol cars
and policemen redirecting
vehicles to other bridges?
Could the school board buses
and schools be advised to use
alternate routes? These mea-
sures would prevent loss of
gas, time, money and possi-
ble road rage.
It might also make a mari-
na at the airport site more
inviting.

GUMC kids deserve credit
Editor:
Many times throughout
the years I have had negative
feelings about the national
press' news reports, etc. Also,
many times as I have read the
articles in the Gondolier Sun I
have felt the writers have not
been truthful, but write their
own opinions.
Today in my Sunday paper
there are pictures and a
report on the work done at
the VACC landscaping. It was
a good article, but the work
was not done by Grace
Baptist Church youth. They
are from Grace United Meth-

Trouble on two wheels


Rack 'em up. I'd like to corn
That has been really bad and I
the county would want to be i
they could put a sign at a reas'
jetty. And if they really want to
bikes. I think something should

Ridiculous. I vote against
putting a marina south of the
Circus Bridge. That will make
the island totally inaccessible
during the season. It's ridicu-
lous to think about it.
Cut the bull. I had a com-
ment about the article about
the problems with the city
and the county and the
Pinebrook extension project. I
think our elected politicians
need to cut the bull, stop
wasting our tax money and
get that road open. The by-
pass needs a bypass.
More old movies. My con-
do neighbor and I saw two
shows at the Frank Galleria:
"Capote," great, and "Mrs.
Henderson Presents," also
great. Now we keep looking
into the listings, waiting for
more movies for older adults.
Nothing is there. We're also
moviegoers, but apparently
the mostly forgotten ones.
Sidewalk needed. I hope
city council and the city of
Venice require the new own-
ers of the old Landmark
restaurant have to construct a
sidewalk on Miami Avenue
with access to the waterway
park, the Gondolier Sun and
the school back there. A side-
walk on Miami Avenue is des-
perately needed from 41, back
to the Intracoastal.
Annexing issues. Regarding
Venice City Council annexing
the GCCFV land in North
Venice, since it is annexing
almost everything that is being
built there, why doesn't it just
pass an amendment to annex
all of NorthVenice? The areas of
future building, that is. It would
save the county owning land
and stop the duplication of ser-
vices, which happens on the
island. Then they could have a
police substation and fire-sta-
tion in North Venice. With all
those houses they will certainly
need their own. And regarding
annexing Caspersen Beach,
please, never give it to the city
of Venice unless they stipulate
for the next 100 years, they will
not develop any of the park
lands. In fact, no building on
any land on the road between
Sharky's and Caspersen Beach,
at least on the beach side. Too
_ many people use that stretch of
beach to let the city develop it.
Yes, to fresh water and sewer-
age.
Increase speed. Please in-
crease the speed on Hatchett
Creek Road to 40 mph and on
I Jacaranda Boulevard from
Center Road to 41 to 40 mph.
Both roads have no houses
with driveways, no schools
and no reason not to have the
speed increased, since people
drive over that speed all the
time, especially Jacaranda,
weaving in and out, especially
around 9 a.m.
Thanks DQ. This is for the
DQ Chill and Grill on East
Venice Avenue. I left my purse
in there yesterday, and they
couldn't have treated me any
nicer. They did have it for me
and when I got it back it was
just like I left it there. I'm do-
ing this call to let them know
how much I appreciate it.
Give them a break. I think

can't for the life of me see why
responsible. It looks to me like
unable cost at the end of each
go all out, a bike rack for a few
d be done for safety purposes.

South County area, anywhere
in South Florida for that mat-
ter, is the government to give
homeowners a tax incentive
on outdoor home improve-
ments. Look at these homes
that are 20-30 years old. They
could really use some updat-
ing. Some kind of shrubbery
and bushes. Some of these
homes have not been painted
since they were built in the
'40s and '50s and that's really
unfortunately. Roof repairs,
windows, cut some of, the
dead brush back any of the'
above improvements would
be nice if the government
provided some kind of tax
benefit to improve the prop-
erty. The houses are not sell-
ing around here and we need
something.
It's time. I'm calling about
corporate welfare. That's
when big businesses hire
these all these illegal immi-
grants and then when they
have babies or have a prob-
lem, we cover it because they
don't have any hospitalization
for them.
They say they're not taking
jobs away from Americans.
Yet, the paper said the major-
ity of them are stucco ma-
sons, tailors, produce sorters,
beauty salon workers, cab dri-r
vers, valet parking only 50
percent of agriculture workers
are American born. I think it's
time we go after the big busi-
nesses that hire illegal immi-
grants and fine them like the
law tells us we should.
To the dogs. I think it's a
shame that the parks are
going to the dogs. Why not
have five or six, or iopr

people be free bf i ai'als?
People do not always pick up
after them and if you slip on
something like that you'll
break a limb.
Why else? We believe in
conserving water. At the pre-
sent prices, who wouldn't?
Why else would anyone want
to be careful and restrict use
when we see tens of thou-
sands of new residences
being planned and built in
the county with the open per-
mitting and ridiculously high
densities being allowed devel-
opers in the good old boy's
club?
What does it mean? I'm
reading the Police Beat in the
Gondolier and the last, thing
they have here is criminal reg-
istration. I would like to have
somebody in the law business
explain to me what criminal
registration means. It would
good on your part to explain
what this means, whether it's
legal or not.
EDITOR'S NOTE: As a condition
of their release from prison some
convicted criminals are required to
register with the sheriffs office in


the county where they live. The
sheriffs office report does not
specify the charge or charges of
which the person was convicted.
Refreshing. The Gondolier
Sun usually has many articles
over the year that have all
been negative news about city
government. It's refreshing to
see something positive in the
paper in the fact that Mayor
Calamaras is resigning and
leaving town. Can't happen
soon enough. I hope Judge
Moore puts his hat in the ring
to become the next mayor of
Venice and slow down growth
for the future of the citizens.
Needs sign. I'm visiting
your beautiful town and I
wanted to see your historic
train depot and I couldn't find
it there are no signs. I know
it's on Venice Avenue. I think'
you all should put some signs
out.
Doesn't belong. The play at
the Venice Little Theatre is
called "The Vagina Mono-
logues" and it is a very vulgar
play and should not be sup-
ported. The play has women
talking about their private
parts. I urge everyone to boy-
cott this production. It does
not belong in Venice.
Double duty. People are
always looking for ways to
save money. I have a good
suggestion. I think they
should pine scent all of the
handicap stickers. Instead of
having a Christmas tree hang-
. ing from your rearview mir-
ror, you can have a pine-
scented handicap sticker
hanging from your mirror and
that way you don't have to buy
the extra pine tree. Oh, by the
way, people who drive with
your handicap stickers hang-
ing from your rearview mir-
ror: in big, bold letters it says
remove before driving.
Poor babies. I read in a
local paper where the owners
-ot:.Sharky's restaurant were
upset because diey didn't get
a shot at running the Snook
Haven facilities and restau-
rant. All I can say is poor, poor
million dollar babies.

We're worth the triple

vehicle and then eventually
retrieve such.
It would seem to me that,
should one have the respon-
sibility of owning and operat-
ing a vehicle that individual
would and should park their
own automobile and get
such.
After all I have seen, I am
amazed that the grocery
stores don't have valet ser-
vices. Why not? People are too
pampered to walk. Just let
them have that service also.

Local man trapped


in sheriff's sex sting


BYTOMMYMCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

A Nokomis man was
caught in a sex sting.,
Joseph A. Patton, 20, 400
block South River Blvd., was
arrested and charged with
soliciting, enticing or luring a
minor to engage in a sex
crime via the Internet.
The incident happened at
9:45 p.m., May 9.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office arrest
report, Patton started a con-
versation (on the Internet)
with what he believed was a
15-year-old female in Venice
on Jan. 27.
Two days later, and again
on April 17, Patton asked the
female if they could meet.
However, he did not say he
had any specific plans.
On April 18, Patton, not
realizing he was talking to a
police decoy (on the Internet)
started a conversation that
had sexual content. He said
he wanted to meet her and
bring her back to his house
for sex.
More Internet conversa-


tions took place between
April 24 and April 29. This
time he said he wanted to
have sex with her on a park
bench.
On May 6, Patton contin-
ued his Internet conversa-
tions with the decoy and
asked if she was free for the
evening.
On May 8, Patton arranged
to meet the "underage"
female at a certain time but
then canceled, saying he "had
to help a friend with a broke-
down car."
Next day, Patton apolo-
gized for canceling the meet-
ing and said he still wanted to
meet, possibly that night. A
time and place was set.
He told the decoy he still
had the same sexual feelings
for her.
Deputies were waiting for
Patton.
During a recorded post-
Miranda interview, Patton
confessed to soliciting the
minor for sex.

Funds OKd for new SCAT routes


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


The second of three major
financial outlays for that pur-
pose received the approval of
county commissioners this
week in what will eventually
lead to more frequent service
and new neighborhood ser-
vices in Englewood, North
Port and possibly even South
Venice and Venice Gardens.
The changes are expected
to cost about $5 million to
implement sometime in July.
The board approved $3 mil-
lion Wednesday and will be
asked to approve the final
funding in July when the new
program starts.
The changes include more
frequent trips along the heav-
ily traveled Route 17, which
runs between Venice and
Sarasota along U.S. 41. A bus
will pass a given stop every 30
minutes, compared to about
an hour and 15 minutes now.
The new Route 21 in Eng-
lewood will'generally follow a
line along Old Englewood
Road, Dearborn Street, Pine
Street and then Medical
Boulevard to Englewood

Ready, set, action, contad


Green vs. White scrimmage features lots of pop.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


After a week of toasty prac-
tice in pads, the Venice High
football players had a little
fun with the Green vs. White
scrimmage Friday night at
Powell-Davis Stadium.
It gave the coaches a
chance to see how the new
bunch would perform in a
game-like situation, referees'
and all.
"They got after each other
pretty good," Indian head
coach Nick Coleman said
after the. Green defeated the
White 21-14. "The tackling
was good. There was good
play on the lines."
Of course, there is lots to
work on. There were plenty of
flags and the ball hit the
ground more than the coach-
es wanted.
Considering everything,
the good far exceeded the
bad.
"It's tough to get ready that
quick," Coleman said of the
shaved-doxiwn spring practice
schedule. "The first three days
are in shorts. It would be bet-


ter if the Green-White was
next week and the spring
game the following week.
Venice will travel to
Southeast on Saturday, May
20, in. a FHSAA Spring Classic.
Game time is 7 p.m.
"We'll have a limited pack-
age," Coleman said..
Venice is coming off a 4-8
record in 2005. The Indians
played a tough schedule and
dropped a lot of close games.
They still finished second in
the district and qualified for
the regional playoffs, where
they knocked off unbeaten
Fort Myers in the first round.
Venice lost several key
players from that squad
including running back/safe-
ty Tony Charles, quarterback
Matt Wickwire and lineman
Kyle Poinsett, to name a few.
Kyle Callahan and Lucian
Collins, quarterbacked the
Green Friday, while Gerry
Hunek and Chris Ataman-
chuk overlooked the White.
Joe Costanzo ran hard for
dithe Green.
Al Mitchell and Matt
Brogan were tough for the
White.

When it comes to swimming pools,
kids aren't the only ones who get to be
playful. With its whimsical water spouts
and end wall mural, this pool's natural
color and surrounding greenery
enhance the appearance of being an


oasis amid the desert that reigns
supreme just beyond the fence. Sym-
metrically placed potted plants add a
refreshing touch of accent color.
More than 500 photos of pools can be

Each year children in Marie Naples' fifth-d
grade class at Venice Elementary School ^
write poems and prose in honor of their
mothers, and nicee Gondolier Sun artist "-
Rob Broyles creates a special painting for i
the Mother's Day edition of Our Town. Last
year a second tradition began, but on die
business page, where columnist Roger
Button suggested some alternative gifts for
Mom's special day, gifts other than the usual
candy and flowers.
Figuring you can never do enough for
Mom, we have chosen to combine the chil-
dren's poems and prose with the business
columnist's suggestions. Somewhere be-
tween a hug and a trip to Hawaii is the per-
fect gift for your favorite mother or signifi-
cant female.
It's the thought that counts!


My Mom
My Mom
I love you so
My Mom
Funny and sweet
My Mom
You love me
My MomN
Outstanding and cool
My Morn
Takes care of me
My Moom
I love thee


My mother
My mom is always kind and caring to me
She puts so much effort into things our
family needs
She loves me so much in many ways
I will love her throughout the days
We will have memories and so much fun
With lots of laughs, just mom and son
I will always love you with a panrt
I will love you with all my heart


They care for you daily
And love you dhe most
They fix all your problems
W\\hether big or quite small
Like if the next door neighbor
Took \our very best ball
They tell you it's OK
To make mistakes
Because they're surely soodthing
That everyone makes
MNoms make you happy
When you feel sad
Moms make you happy
\\hen you feel bad
So all together
Nloms are die best
Mloms are so surly
So much better than the rest
Watching us. get good grades
I have so many memories
That will not fade
She's the best
And she's better
So much better than the rest
.She gives me food
And gets me in a better mood
I think it's fair to say
Mom gets better every day.


My mom always loves me
Each day and each year
I am never alone
When my mother is near
Each day we go to the park
And then we go for a walk after,
dark -
We make bread all nice and neat
We make it with flour, butter and
wheat
Who loves me the most, let's see
I am not sure, but I know my
mother always loves me


Mom
You have taken care of me since
day one
Even though at times it hasn't
been so fun
You gave me shelter and you gave
me life
Now all I want to do is say Happy
Mother's Day
and thank you

A Mother's Day reflection on wildlife


. Of course, today, Mothers Day,
my mother, Valerie, and my wife,
June, are uppermost in my mind.
Mother first taught me to care about.
the animals in our household: a for-
merly stray mutt named Podgy and
a cat of unknown origin called Inky.
June has been a wonderful mother
to our four children, inspiring and
teaching them in so many ways I
couldn't. June helped me expand my
concern for family pets to include all
creatures. I share her love for, and
fascination with, all critters, and
these have been passed along to our
entire family, I'm proud t6 report.
I experienced a strong family
structure in my own life. I lived with
my grandparents on a farm in
Minnesota for a year, then with a
wonderful great aunt and uncle
through difficult times during World
War II, until my parents could bring
us all back together again. Yes, I
especially appreciate family sup-
port. I think June and I carried for-


PHOTO COURTESY OF LARRY ALLAN
Gray wolf mothers are excellent caregivers for their cubs, and they get strong family support frorh the rest of the
pack.


ward that idea as we raised our three
sons and daughter in a household
that included the love and help of
June's mother, Donna.
Knowing that background, you
can understand, I'm sure, just how I
appreciate the strong family struc-
ture and concerned parenting that I
have witnessed in the wild. It's at the
-a


very heart of survival of the wolf,
and other species. Both wolf parents
feed and raise their young. They stay
* together as a family, forming a pack
that can include the parents and
several generations of their cubs.
All generations, aunts and uncles,,
older siblings and the parents, con-
tribuie to the well-being of those lit-


tie cubs. They hunt, and bring back
food for the cubs. The cubs lick and
bite the muzzles and throats of the
older wolves to trigger regurgitation
of food, which the young cubs then
eat. All adults in the pack take turns
watching and guarding the cubs,
forming a family of babysitters.
There's always a guardian near wolf


cubs. Eventually, the cubs are taken
out hunting to teach them the skills
they need to survive.
Generally, a litter of wolf cubs will
stay with the pack until they reach
about three years of age: Then they'll
strike out on their own to find a
mate and start a new pack, carrying
forward the strong family structure
those wolves learned from their
original family. ,
Why do some people want to
change this natural, 'wonderful
behavior? I don't know. I do know
that gray wolves deserve our
respect, our admiration and our
protection. The wolf is a lot more
important to me than the horse-
power under my hood or the gaso-
line in my tank. We need to help
other people understand how much
would be missing from this world if
wolves were only to be found in zoos
or other managed places. Wolves are
part of the irreplaceable wildlife her-
itage that makes up America.
Let's make sure gray wolves
remain a part of our heritage for gen-
erations to come forever. There's
no better way to preserve the values
our mothers, and fathers and grand-
parents taught us than to protect the
wildlife heritage they handed down
to us.

It's wonderful to look back.
It's also sensible
to move forward.
You and your mom share a lifetime of mem-
ories. But sometimes it's more important
to plan for the future. Because mom may
now need more time and help than you
can possibly give her.
Choosing assisted living at
Sumnmeville at Venice can actually give
her greater independence. And give you
greater peace of mind, knowing that
she is nearby in a safe and comfort-
able senior living community staffed
around the clock by caring, highly qualified
professionals.


To learn more about the many benefits of
assisted living for your mother or loved one,
call us today to arrange a visit and private tour.

Q. I recently purchased
two hearing aids that fit
inside the ears. When I
didn't wear hearing aids,
everything sounded too
soft. Now when I am using
my hearing aids,
everything sounds too loud.
What should I do?
A. One of the biggest shocks
people experience when
wearing hearing aids is how
loud everyday sounds now
seem. This is because people
with sensorineural hearing
loss often suffer from
recruitment. Recruitment is
the perception that sounds
increase in volume .faster
than they really do. It is the
result of a reduced dynamic
range of hearing which is
that area between the softest
sound you can hear and the
loudest sound you can stand.
People with normal hearing
have a dynamic range of 100
- 120 dB. People with
hearing loss have a restricted
dynamic range which can be
as small as 20dB. A properly
programmed hearing aid will
adequately amplify the soft
sounds while limiting the
amount of amplification
given to louder sounds. Your
hearing aids may need to be
reprogrammed to
accommodate your dynamic
range more precisely. The
best way to insure this
measure is done correctly is
with the use of REM or Real
Ear Measurement. Before
you give up on your hearing
aids, call the Audiologists
at Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. at
492-4327 to learn more
about REM and to find out if
your hearing aids are
properly programmed for
your dynamic range of
hearing.

Geriatric doctors are
0 0

trained to treat seniors


JIM MILLER
COLUMNIST

Dear Savvy Senior,
Can you tell me the different
types of health problems a geri-
atrician treats and how I can find
one? Every time I see my current
doctor he reminds me how old I
am (I'm 76) and writes me
another prescription to take. I
would like to make a change,
but I want someone who will
help me, not patronize me. -
Not Too Old
Dear Not,
If you think your doctor is
paying more attention to
your age than your health, a
geriatrician may be just the
antidote. Here's what you
should know.
Geriatricians
A geriatrician is a medical
doctor who specializes in
caring for older adults -
usually older than age 65.
Geriatricians are typically
board certified in family
practice or internal medicine
and have additional training
and certification in caring for
the elderly. Just as a pediatri-
cian specializes in caring for
children, a geriatrician is
trainednd to diagnose, .pat.and
prevent illness in seniors.
Some of the advantages of
seeing a geriatrician over a
regular family doctor can
include:
Better diagnosis:
Geriatricians look at symp-
toms differently and under-
stand that a disease in a 70-
year-old is not the same as in
a 40-year-old. In other words,
they won't write off your
health problems as just a
result of aging.
Extra time: In general,
geriatric doctors spend twice-
as much time with their
patients as a regular doctor
does.
Specialized care:
Geriatricians are specially
trained to manage and treat
complex and oftentimes
multiple health problems
that affect older adults such
as: confusion and memory
loss, sleep problems, trouble
with balance and falls, arthri-
tis, diabetes, osteoporosis,
incontinence, depression,
heart disease, stroke,
Parkinson's disease, prostate
enlargement, respiratory
problems and more.


Medication manage-
ment: Drug misuse is anoth-
er common problem due
to the biological changes that'
occur with aging, and
because many seniors tend
to take multiple medications
at the same time for various
health problems. A geriatri-
cian will help you manage
your meds and make sure
they don't interact with each
other in a harmful way.
Full-service care: Many
seniors use a geriatrician as
their primary care physician
to oversee and coordinate all
aspects of their care.
Long-term needs:
Geriatricians can also help
their patients and families
determine their long-term
care needs, like how long
they can remain in their own
homes safely without assis-
tance, and what type of ser-
vices may be necessary when
they do need some extra
help.
Savvy facts
There's a short supply of
geriatricians in the United
States that's expected to get
worse in the coming years as
77 million baby boomers
grow older. Currently, barely
1 percent of the nation's
700,000 doctor's are certified
in geriatrics, yet older
Americans by far require the
most medical care. Making
matters worse is that only 10
of the nation's 125 medical
schools require courses in
geriatrics, and only three
have established geriatrics
departments. The main rea-
.son behind this shortage is
poor Medicare reimburse-
ments.
Finding help
To locate a geriatrician or
other health care profession-
al with geriatric training, try
these resources:
American Geriatrics
Society: To find a geriatrician
in your area, call (800) 563-
4916 or visit
healthinaging.org.
American Society of
Consultant Pharmacists: This
organization provides a
nationwide list of senior care
pharmacists that help older
patients identify and prevent


medication problems by
managing their medications.
Visit
seniorcarepharmacistfcom or
call (800) 355-2727.
Area Agency on Aging: To
find other health profession-
als (nutritionist, physical
therapist, psychiatrist, nurs-
es) with geriatric training,
contact your local aging
office. To get your local num-
ber, call the eldercare locator
at (800) 677-1116 or visit
eldercare.gov.
Social Security services
Dear Savvy Senior,
Does Social Security offer
any .public education or out-
reach services? I belong to a
small ladies group at my church
and many of us are nearing
retirement age and have lots of
questions. What can you recom-
mend? Seeking Security
Dear Seeking,
The Social Security
Administration is always
looking for opportunities to
educate Americans about
their programs, benefits and
services. Here's what you
should know.
Speakers
Many people don't know
that Social Security offers a
free speaker's bureau service
that provides educational
presentations, seminars,
classes or workshops in any
community nationwide. At
your request, speakers will
work with small and large
groups covering anything
you want to know about
Social Security, as well as
answer yopXque.tions and
provide additional handout
materials. Social Security
speakers are often requested
by businesses, civic organiza-
tions, senior centers, local
clubs, church groups, etc. -
educating people in the areas
of retirement benefits/when
to retire, disability, SSI,
spouses and divorced spous-
es benefits, widows/widow-
ers benefits, how work affects
your benefits, government
pension offset, taxable bene-
fits, identity theft and more.
You can make a request for a
Social Security speaker

Weddings today and yesterday


We who have children must
have neglected our parents and
friends way back when. In
Sarasota, you can now get a 3-
Dimensional picture of your
unborn child, sleeping happily
in his comfortable nest Were
we born to soon? I dunno! And
did you know you can now
order stamps from the U.S. Post
Office with your baby's picture
on them? That is if you want to
see them canceled out. I
dunno!
Now, wedding cakes. Like
weddings, they are getting
bigger and fancier all the
time. The other day my friend
saw one with three tiers and
side cakes. Beneath the main
cake was a small bubbling


water fountain. From the first
tier, stairs descended to the
side cakes and the miniature
people on the stairs repre-
sented the wedding atten-
dants. Of course, small col-
umns separated the tiers and
bows of tulle decorated the
first and second tiers. I quer-
ied how much that would
cost. About $500, she answer-
ed. The average wedding to-
day is about $20,000, she add-
ed. Do you reckon after the
wedding some couples in the
future may spend their hon-
eymoon going to the moon?
After all, we do call it a "hon-
eymoon," don't we?
In my foggy mind, I won-
dered how many babysitters,
how many diapers, how
much gasoline would that
buy. Then I thought of my
own wedding. We had a small
cake and a bowl of punch,
which the Shoreham Hotel in
Washington, D.C., provided
as my husband was the pub-
licity director there. My street-
length blue lace dress had
cost $10. My peach-colored
Leghorn hat, trimmed in
blue, probably cost a couple
of dollars and I did have a cor-
sage. We had furnished our


own apartment where we
held our own reception, with
13 guests. My newbrother-in-
law and his wife gave us $10
to buy a sterling silver pattern
setting. That $10 is what we
lived on the first week. My
husband had a whole week-
end off and we took a street-
car trip to downtown Wash-
ington. That was our honey-
moon. But you know what?
We were happy as a lark and
we didn't feel deprived.
Ten years ago, I was shock-
ed to learn when you give one
of those big birthday parties
for your child, you are expect-
ed to give each child attend-
ing a gift to take home. I sug-
gest they do what I did for my
son. They could have ice
cream and cake on picnic
tables for their friends. Now
that would be a novel idea for
today. Maybe my ideas are
too old fashioned, you reck-
on? Idunno!

BY DALE MOORE
GUEST COLUMNIST


It's that time of year again,
but there are not many
homes anymore in which this
annual event is celebrated.
I'm talking about spring
house cleaning. I don't mean
having Merry Maids come in
and clean the house on a
weekly basis. I'm talking
about a real old-fashioned
spring house cleaning.
When I was growing up,
this phenomena was reli-
giously observed by every
respectable housewife. It
often lasted a week, pervad-
ing every nook and cranny,
from attic to basement. Every
bedroom. window was
thrown open. In order to
wash the outside of the win-
dow, Grandma would wiggle
her ample body through the
open window, her legs hang-
ing in the bedroom to anchor
her. Curtains in every room


were washed. I'll never forget
pinning them on curtain
stretchers; adjustable wood-
en frames with tiny tacks,
points out, all around the
edge, on which curtains were
"stretched" to dry and on
which fingers were tom. Even
today, the tips of my fingers
bum with the memory.
Mattresses had to be turn-
ed. Every drawer and shelf
was emptied, cleaned and fit-
ted with new newspapers in
the bottom before its con-
tents were placed back in.
"Going on the web" meant
covering the dust mop with
Dad's old undershirt, and
aggressively going' after the
cobwebs in every comer of
the room. With a scrub brush,
aching arms and raw knees,
carpets were scrubbed. After
they dried, and the wood
floor was scrubbed, newspa-
pers were laid on the floor
before the carpet was re-laid.'
In kitchen and bath, linoleum


was scrubbed until all the old
yellow wax was gone and the
floor gleamed. Hot air regis-
ters were taken up out of the
floor and Grandma reached
in as far as her arm would
extend to clean out any dirt
and soot and to retrieve toys,
keys, bobby pins and a dozen
other items that had fallen
through the grate since the
last cleaning. Not even the
basement escaped. Items that
had been banished to the
basement were packed in
boxes or put on shelves in the
room under the front porch.
At the end of each day,
Mom would still have dinner
on the table when her family
arrived home. There was no
take-out from Boston Market
or Wendy's. There was no
Boston Market or Wendy's!
I wonder why we don't do
real old-fashioned spring-
cleaning much any more?
And that's my two cents
worth...

Historic Homes


& Gardens train tour was grand and luxe


'While travelers on the historic American Orient
Express Train toured the Antebellum South this
spring, the company was in the process of chang-
ing its name to Grandluxe Rail Journeys.


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is part
one of a series.

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

One of the best ways to en-
joy springtime in the South is
on a vintage train tour with
stops in Antebellum South
cities.
While most everyone else
was enjoying the typical
spring break in Florida or the
Caribbean, a group of vintage
rail fans, was traveling to the
beat of a different drummer.
I was a part of that group
for six nights and seven glori-
ous days as we traveled from
Savannah to Charleston to
Richmond and eventually to
Washington, D.C., aboard the
14-car American Orient Ex-
press. (Since my return, the
name of the line has been
changed from AOE to Grand-
luxe Rail Journeys). The trip
was a shortened version of a
longer trip that originally was
planned to start in New
Orleans. In the aftermath of
Hurricane Katrina, which
continues to make passenger
train travel in and out of that
part of the country a chal-
lenge, the tour was changed.
The result was less actual
train, travel but more oppor-
tuity to"explore the historic
homes and gardens of the
three cities in which the new
tour was concentrated.
As a big fan of the "less is
more" way of thinking, I knew I
would get to really see those
cities up close and personal
and in depth. Even though I
had been everywhere the train
went except for Savannah, I
was not disappointed. I learned
a lot, ate far too much, made
some great new friends and
saw some of the most beautiful
gardens in the South, many in
full bloom because of the tim-
ing of the trip.
The first thing I learned
was that the second largest St.
Patrick's Day celebration in
the world is in Savannah. The
first is in New York CIty. This
year, it was estimated that
some 600,000 celebrants don-
ned their best green duds and
headed into Savannah to con-
sume goodness knows how
many gallons of green beer,
while wearing green hats and
feather boas.
The travelers met up at the
River Street Inn in downtown
Savannah. Some had arrived
a day or so earlier in order to
see even more of that lovely
city.
We were invited to enjoy
some sweet tea and snacks as
we waited for our train orien-
tation program to begin at the
inn.
When our orientation be-
gan, we were warned that the
holiday festivities could mean
our bus trip of the city would
be altered a bit because of the
crowds. As a veteran AOE

traveler, I knew that it would
all work out, for that company
knows how to make lemon-
ade out of any kind of lemons
it is given. Two years earlier,
on its trans-Canada trip, the
line had to fly nearly 70 of us
from Vancouver to Edmonton
because of forest fires in the
Canadian Rockies. They did
that without a hitch, while

also flying a similar number of
western-bound AOE passen-
gers from Edmonton to
Vancouver and provisioning
the train in Edmonton rather
than Vancouver. Despite all
that, we passengers were on
the train within a few hours of
when we were due to depart
for a fabulous trip that turned
me into a vintage train junkie.
Despite a four-hour parade
in Savannah, I knew I could
just relax and go with the flow.
During the orientation we
met our onboard guide, Kitty
Roberts, forever after known
as "Miss Kitty," and several

members of the train staff. We
also had a charice to meet and
mingle a bit with our fellow
travelers before boarding the
buses that would deliver us to
the Savannah Train Station,
where we would meet our
porters and board the train.
Two buses delivered us to
the station where the porters
and other train personnel
were lined up to meet us. The
porters wore black uniforms
and stood with hands folded
behind their backs. We travel-
ers were dressed in every
color of the rainbow, and
some with green and white
feather boas for the St. Patrick
celebration, as we milled
around, anxious to be on
board.
Finally those of us assigned'

to the Montreal car were led
to the train. Esperanza, my
porter for the week, led the
way to my vintage Pullman.
As it turned out, I hit the jack-
pot. My room was the first
one in the car and, at the end
where the shower is located,
and just four cars from the'
end of the train and a similar
number of cars from the
observation car and, the din-
ing car.
Even though my 7-foot by
7-foot Vintage Pullman was
about the size of one of my
walk-in closets at home and
my closet on the train was just
4 inches wide, I really had
everything I needed for a lux-
urious step back into the his-
tory of train travel circa 1954-
1957 in. the United States. I
also had two drawers beneath
the seat/berth. Had I been
sharing the compartment, I
would have had to share as I
had to on the European
Orient Express years ago.
Instead, I really had more
than enough room for my
'laptop and my clothes for the
week. To consolidate, I was
mixing and matching black
and green, and adding layers
as we headed north. No mat-
ter where I go, I mix and
match in order to take less
clothing and leave more
room for things I might want
to buy and bring home. The
square flip-up table was the
perfect size for my laptop. An
outlet was next to the table
and another was on the wall
where I could plug in my cell
phone charger.
There are five types of cab-
ins aboard, ranging from the
6-foot by 7-foot single sleeper
to the 7-foot by 9-foot Parlor
Suites to the 7-foot by 12-foot
Classic Presidential Suite with
2.5-foot by 3-foot private
shower and the 7-foot by 9.4-
foot Grand Suite. Cabin doors
are 18 inches wide and hall-
ways are 24. inches wide.
Private show compartments
in each car are 2.5 feet by 3
feet. Aveda amenities are pro-
vided in the cabins and in the
shower compartments.
These train cars date to
what I like to think of as the
golden age of train travel in
the United States the
1950s. That was the days
when people heading west on
the Union Pacific line enjoyed
incredible views of the moun-
tains from the train's dome
cars, dined in luxury at tables
laden with heavy white linens
and used heavy silverplate
knives, forks and spoons and
were served tea and coffee
from other heavy silverplate.
Even on a short run such as


SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL
A typical dinner aboard the historic train is a five-course feast
that includes appetizer, salad, soup, entree and dessert plus
beverages including a selection of wines. If you cannot make
up your mind, you can order a sampler such as above, which
consisted of roasted lamb chops with Yukon gold potatoes
and batonnet of yellow squash and zucchini plus beef tourne-
does on a bed of sour cream-green onion smashed red bliss
potatoes and fresh broccoli.


one from Cleveland to New
York, service was impeccable.
GrandLuxe trains are com-
posed of fully restored trains
of that era. Our train had eight
sleeper cars, two dining cars,
two lounge cars, a dome car
and at the back of the. train,
an elegant observation car
that had been dedicated by
hone-other that Dwight

engine, Bar Harbor, Vienna,
Santa Fe, Charleston, Seattle
Club Car, Chicago Dining Car,
Zurich Dining Car, Copper
Canyon Dome Car, Montreal,
Paris, Denver, Savannah and
NewYork Observation Car.
The sleeping carriages
were originally built between
1950 and 1956 by the Pull-
man-Standard Company of
Chicago. The New York Ob-
servation car was delivered in
1948 to the New York Central
Railroad as the Sandy Creek
for use on the 20th Century
Limited, running between
NewYork and Chicago. It was
dedicated by Dwight Eisen-
hower and Beatric Lillie, has
plush seating, a bay window
observation car and full bar.
The Seattle Club Car was
delivered to the Union Pacific
in 1954 as a 14-section sleep-
er and then was rebuilt as a
44-seat leg rest coach in 1965.
1 The Chicago Dining Car
was built by the St. Louis car
Company for the Union Pa-
cific in 1959. Originally it was
an eight-seat cafe, 24-seat
diner with a 16-seat lounge.
The Zurich Dining Car' was


ordered in 1946 from the
American Car and Foundry. It
was delivered to the Union
Pacific in 1949 as a 24-seat
diner and 29-seat lounge.
Today both dining cars con-
tain tables for two along one
side and tables for four along
the other, with some seating
on built-in banquettes and
most in pull-up chairs. Hand-
made marquetry provides

All the cars- on"the train
were purchased in the 1980s.
In 1988 the cars were sent to
either Northern Rail Car
Company and Milawaukee or
to Kasten Rail Services Inc. in
St. Louis, where they under-
went mechanical reconstruc-
tion, which included the
installation of new air condi-
tioning and heating, electrical
systems and plumbing sys-
tems and certain safety fea-
tures. Each car was tested for
road-worthiness at speeds in
excess of 100 mph although I
learned from the train master,
Marty Soholt, that we would
not go nearly that fast, aver-
aging more like 60 mph on
this trip.
After the mechanical up-
grades, the cars were shipped
to Panama City, Fla., for inter-
nal reconstruction at a cost of
some $1 million per car. Artist
Joel Dyer painted the ceilings
and murals in the club cars.

Norman Warsinke.
What is now the Grandluxe
train, dates to 1972 when Alby
Glatt of Switzerland inaugu-
rated the Nostalgic Isfanbul
Orient Express, which used
historic carriages for trips out
of Zurich. Glatt and an associ-
ate approached William
Spann in Panama City about
developing a,similar train in
the United States. After in-
vestors were found, the group
lined up 13 historic train cars,
refurbished 10 of them and in
1989, began service between
Washington, D.C., and Chi-
cago. Service was suspended
the next year and reinstated a
year later with a more scenic
itinerary and a changed con-
cept the 24-hour land
cruise from New York to
Chicago via the scenic New
River Gorge in West Virginia.
The formula was still not right
and 11 cars were put into
mothballs in mid-October
1991 by what had, been
known as the American Euro-
pean Express. For three years
the cars sat on a CSX siding
until 1994 when the AOE
company began operating as
the Branson Limited, with
nine trips to Branson, Mo. The
train's appearance in the 1994
and 1995 Neiman Marcus
'Christmas catalogs helped
bur it was not until Seattle-
based TCS took over'and pol-
ished up the cruise train con-
cept in 1996 that the future
was more secure. Venture
capitalist and philanthropist
Henry Hillman purchased the
train in late 1997, with
thoughts of luxury trips to
such places as the Grand
Canyon. Every itinerary in-
cludes plentiful stops and
motor coach tours to area
sights, with most overnights
on the train, attentive service
and, gourmet food. In April,
the train was sold to its latest
owner and renamed Grand-
luxe Rail Journeys.

This concludes Part One of
a multi-part series on the
Antebellum South.- Historic
Homes & Gardens tour, one of
several land "cruises" aboard
the vintage rail cars of
Grandluxe RailJourneys.

Words you'll never hear


DICK HARRISON
GUEST COLUMNIST

"Your call is very important
to us, please hold for the
next available representative."
These are words everyone
who owns a telephone has
heard; almost always followed
by a 15- or 20-minute wait
until a live person answers -
assuming we haven't been cut
off while waiting.
The honest translation,
which you'll never hear, is, "If
you were really that impor-
tant, we'd staff properly to
handle the call volume."
* Wouldn't it be refreshing to.
hear any TV anchorman say,
"The sound bite you've just
seen and heard is totally out
of context, but since it sup-
ports our editorial bias, we
ran it anyway?"
If your pastor has finish-
ed, but hasn't ended the ser-
mon, don't expect to hear


these words from the pulpit:
"I can see those of you who
are not already asleep are
bored to death, so I'm stop-
ping after point number two."
It's just as unlikely you'll
hear your senator or repre-
sentative state: "My oppon-
ent has a really great idea
and if we were willing to
work together, we could make
it happen."
Has your dentist ever held
his hypodermic needle at lip
level and commented, "This
cavity is so tiny only a big
sissy would ask for Novocain?"
Has your auto mechanic
ever smiled sheepishly and
admitted: "I didn't even have
to jack up the car to fix it, but
I did jack up the bill?"
If your lawyer had to place
his hand on the Bible and
swear to tell the whole truth,
you probably won't hear him
say, "We don't have a snow-
ball's chance if this goes to
trial, but at three hundred
bucks an hour, I'd be a fool to
try to dissuade you."
Don't bet your portfolio
your stockbroker will ever
finish a phone call by saying,
"I haven't a clue if the stock
I recommended will in-
crease your net worth. The
one thing I'm sure of is, the
commission will. increase
mine."
Three years into analysis,
your psychiatrist would be as


crazy as you are to put dowi
his pad and say: "There's noth
ing more I can do for yor
but with a little luck I cai
milk this for another twi
years."
Have you ever had the gu
in the seat next to yours on
plane trip tap you on the arn
and say: "Don't wrinkle u}
your nose at the fellow across
the aisle I was the on
who broke wind?"
We've become so used ti
"odiferous" overstatement
and obfuscations, it's easy ti
forget the poor treatment w
endure is just as hard on th.
service representatives w
talk to. They realize you'v
waited 20 minutes to be con
- nected. and know the phon.
conversation can only gi
downhill from the point the
pick up the call. Still, the
are ordered to mouth suc]
malarkey as: "How can I pro
vide excellent service for yoi
today?"
Try to keep in mind, eve:
after an extended cold- sna}
in Hell, he or she will neve
hear the boss say: "Becaus.
of all you put up with, you
work and dedication should
be rewarded with a nic
raise, but if I hold down th,
department budget, I'll get
nice bonus."

Dick Harrison is a Venice
resident.

DEPUTY OF THE YEAR


Best


of the




Best


The Sarasota
County Sheriff's
Office held its
annual awards
ceremony April 27. .

Presenting the
awards was Sheriff
Bill Balkwill. Deputy of the Year. Deputy Chris McConnell


Deputy McConnell
has been a member of
the Sheriff's Office since
1988, when he was
hired! as a Bailiff. He
became a Deputy in
2000 and is assigned to
District 3 Patrol Bureau.
Deputy McConnell
has worked as a Field
Training Officer and is
currentlyia member of
the Emergency
Response Team, which
is deployed to assist law
enforcement agencies in
devastated areas in an
effort to stem looting,
restore orders, and con-
duct search and rescue
missions.


Deputy McConnell
was deployed with the
Team in the aftermath
of both Hurricanes
Charley and Frances,
where he dealt with
long work hours and
an overwhelmingly
difficult work environ-
ment.
Deputy McConnell
has received Sheriff's
Office Unit Citation
awards for his FTO and
ERT involvement, and in
2005 he received a Life
Saving Award for his
successful efforts to
save a depressed citizen
who was attempting
suicide.


Corrections Deputy of the Year: Corrections Deputy
Daniel Cameron


Telecommunications Operator of the Year:
Communications Operator Randy Grosswiler


Meritorious Achievement: Deputy Steve
Boone. Boone also is one of the agency's four
helicopter pilots.


Meritorious Acheivement: Lt. Tom Stroud


Left: Corrections Deputy
Daniel Cameron began his
career at the Sheriff's Office in
August 2001. Deputy
Cameron has proven himself
to be a valuable member of
the Corrections Division. In
Sept. 2005, it was Deputy
Cameron's diligence that pre-
vented a loaded gun from
entering the courthouse. His
bravery was no surprise to his
coworkers, who count on him
to pay attention to detail and
to follow through on any
assignment he is given.
Deputy Cameron's actions in
September, as well as his
every day work ethic, repre-
sent the finest example of a
Corrections Deputy.



Left: Communications
Operator Randall Grosswiler
began his career with the
Sheriff's Office in 2002, and
he is known for his consistent-
ly high standards, no matter
what position he is assigned
to work at the Public Safety

teous with the public, the
road deputies and his
coworkers. i

Mike has been a member of
the Sheriff's Office for 13
years and her supervisors and
her coworkers depend on her
support and experience,
knowing her to be a conscien-
tious, hard-working and
team-spirited employee who
will put forth the extra effort
to accomplish any task
assigned. One of Mike's most
noteworthy accomplishments
this year was her participa-
tions in the Christmas Gift of
Giving program, which pro-
vides assistance for personnel
in financial need during the
holidays.



Left: The Combat Cross Award
was presented to Sgt. James
Minchin, Sgt. Marc Pezzella,
and Deputy Steven Boone for
actions set forth in the follow-
ing citation:
Aug. 22, 2005, the North
Port Police Department
responded to a domestic dis-
pute where the suspect
doused his wife with gasoline
and attempted to set her on
fire. She escaped unharmed,
but the suspect barricaded
himself in the residence. The
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office SWAT Team responded
to the Police Department's
request for assistance.
The suspect fired several
shots inside the residence
and made it clear he would
not be apprehended without
incident. After numerous
attempts to negotiate surren-
der, the SWAT Team made
entry into the residence.
Following a lengthy and
exhaustive search, the sus-
pect was located in the mas-
ter bathroom, armed with a
handgun and a nearby shot-
gun. Deputy Boone held a
ballistic barricade and provid-
ed cover for Sergeants
Pezzella and Minchin. With no
other options in an effort to
protect his teammates,
Deputy Boone placed himself
in a precarious position, rely-
ing solely on the capabilities
of the two Sergeants. While
maintaining vigiliarce further
negotiations were attempted;
however, the suspect pointed
his handgun at the officers.
As a result, Sgt. Pezzella and
Sgt. Minchin were forced to
simultaneously use deadly
force to eliminate the threat.
Deputy Boone, Sgt.
Pezzella, and Sgt. Minchin did
not shirk from danger and
displayed courage, bravery
and bearing while facing an
armed adversary.
They reacted without
regard for their personal safe-
ty and in the best interests of
the community.
