STAFF'WRITER

Lots of bad guys run from the police. Almost all get
caught.
One reason is the Sarasota County Sheriff's helicopter
camera.
"We had,.a recent incident (at night) where a deputy
stopped a suspect on River Road, and while he was getting
the information the driver fled at a high rate of speed," said
Sgt. Roger Jernigan, the aviation unit's chief pilot.
"He ran off the road and fled'on foot. Two minutes later, the
camera spotted him running through yards trying to hide."
lernigan said he directed deputies on the ground to the
suspect's exact whereabouts and he was arrested.
In another incident,,a suicidal patient who escaped from
a. Sarasota hospital was located by air. (That incident is
depicted in the photo inset of this story.) Again, the pilot
and observer directed police on the ground once the sub-
ject was located by the helicopter pilot and camera.
These are but two examples of the work done at night

There is something quite special about the sheriff's helo,
known by its call sign, "Air-1."
Air-1 is equipped with a camera slung. underneath its
nose. It's no ordinary camera. It is called FUR (Forward-
Looking Infra Red), and it can see in the dark.'
FLIR has "thermal imaging" that is, it photographs
heat. Animate and inaminatp~objects give off heat.
"'Watching the FUR monitor is like watching a black-
and-white TV," Jernigan said. "To the camera, those objects
that give off heat appear white."
The FUR monitor is mounted in front of the helo's left
seat where the observer sits.
Jernigan said he can fly over a parking lot and tell who
recently shut off their motor, because radiating engine heat
will show up on the FUR monitor.
The chopper also has an 18-million candlepower (mea-
sure of light intensity) searchlight which, interestingly, is
not used that often, Jernigan said.
"Without the searchlight

Finding out who doesn't
want to be mayor is a lot
easier than figuring out who
does.
Mayor Dean Calamaras
retired May 9 with a year and
six months remaining on his
term. Venice City Council
needs to appoint a current
member to serve as mayor
until an election can be held
this November for the final
year of Calamaras' unexpired
term.
None of the remaining six
council members is publicly
campaigning for the acting
mayor position. Many peo-
ple in the community have
all but assumed Vice Mayor
Fred Hammett will be the
one named acting mayor,
though it can be any of the
members..


Hammett admits he has
heard those same rumors.
If he is named acting
mayor, Hammett will ser-
iously consider running for
mayor this fall.

the pier at Fisherman's Wharf.
The pier is "all that the
commissioners are discuss-
ing during the hearing, but
they have received e-mails
and phone calls from dozens
of people who are worried
about what the extended
pier will change in the area.
Rumors have. swirled
around a possible condo-
minium complex or a re-
placement of the Marker 4
restaurant with something
else. All of those issues will
need to be handled by Ven-
ice City Council.
The public hearing almost
never happened.
In January, the county
commissioners narrowly (3-
2) agreed to allow the hear-
ing to go forward in order to
avoid accusations of not
allowing someone the right
to have a request heard.
Residents of Harbor Ughts
Mobile Home Park and from
across the Intracoastal Water-
way came out in force then
to oppose the project at all
levels and were disappointed
by the board's decision.
Similar public input is ex-
pected Tuesday.
At, the January meeting,
the board members were only
asked if they were willing to
hear the request, not to de-
cide whether the extension
of the approved 415-foot pier
had merit.
OKing the hearing allow-
ed county staff to move for-
ward with a comprehensive
review of the permit applica-
tion.
The second option was to
deny the application based
on the legal principle of ad-
ministrative "res judicata" -
that the matter had already
been voted on previously,
and there needed to be a
substantial change in cir-
cumstances for them to hear
the application again.

argued there have been

Mayor asked to resign 'for good of the city'


There's a proposal afoot to
create an area hurricane shel-
ter for large animals. It would
be located in DeSoto County.
To make it happen, money
is needed from several coun-
ties and Sarasota has, already
balked. That's not difficult to
understand.
The thought of transport-
ing horses, primarily, to a shel-
ter in storm conditions is
unnerving. On its face, it
seems, impractical to add
horse trailers to evacuation
traffic.
It's true that horses are spe-
cial animals, and might not
survive exposure in an open
pasture. But it's the owners
who need to plan. A publicly
funded horse shelter seems a
misplaced priority.

STAFF REPORT

City Councilwoman Jan
Dean has asked Mayor
William McCracken to re-
sign "for the good of the city."
McCracken, however, de-
clined.
Mrs. Dean made her
remarks during a special city
council meeting -Wednesday
to iron out problems between
the mayor and city adminis-
trator.
City Administrator Paul
Ybiongberg '$. had- resigned .


from office, citing seven
pages of charges concerning
McCracken's actions as may-
or.
McCracken has accepted
Youngberg's resignation on
two occasions, but council
has refused to do the same.
Mrs. Dean told McCrack-
en, "I have spent hours trying
to reach a solution to our
problem. The city of Venice
and its citizens are my only
concern.
"It is true Mr. Youngberg is
not irreplaceable, but I do feel


if he leaves this position, our
problem will still be with us.
"The smooth operation
and the continuance of a
functioning city are of the
utmost importance," she
said. "Therefore ... I must ask
Mr. McCracken to resign as
Mayor of Venice for the good
of the city."
McCracken refused to re-
sign, saying he had been
tempted to do so. He added
that the proceedings were
hard on his family and the
time taken made it difficult to
make a living.
""Council president Bertis-


ford Walker said he wanted
the resignations of both
Youngberg and McCracken or
some kind of reconciliation.
He explained he had tried to
get the two to come to terms
but had been unsuccessful.
But Councilman David
Farley said he wanted an-
swers.
"We have had two major
charges brought against the
mayor and he has not given
us an answer," Farley de-
clared. "I want to hear what
he has to say about the police
pension fund and charges
made by George Archer. .-

Attack housing shortage by lowering expectations



Attack housing shortage by lowering expectations


BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER
It's about teaching people
the difference between needs
andl wants.
Education and changing
the expectations of new
homebuyers were key issues
raised by the Sarasota County
Interagency Planning Com-
mission task force Wednes-
day.
The group, composed of
the chairs of planning com-
missions from Sarasota
County and the cities of
North Port, Venice, Sarasota
and Longboat Key, met in
North Port's City Hall to
brainstorm about workforce
housing.
And while they talked
about the possibility of
requiring builders to con-
struct a percentage of afford-
able homes in their develop-
ments or classifying homes
by price per square foot, it
ultimately came down to
changing expectations.
"When we think of a starter
home, we all think, of three-
bedroom, two-bath," said
Shannon Snyder, a member
of the city of Sarasota plan-
ning board. "We think we're
entitled that. But you take a
new teacher, they're not enti-
tled to a three-bedroom, two-
bath. That's (something)
earned."
Snyder said cottages built
for those left homeless by
Katrina were constructed to
be adaptable.
"It starts as one-bedroom,,
one-bath with a shotgun


kitchen at 750 square feet," he
continued. "It can become
multigenerational. All these
little things add up.
"We need to start showing
people they don't need 2,000-
square-foot homes, because
(they) can't afford it.
You start with a 750-
square-foot home and a
mortgage, and you can add
on over time."
Sarasota County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub,
who attended the meeting,
said Snyder "hit the nail on
the head."
"Expectations are pretty
high for first-time homebuy-
ers," Staub said. "The other
thing is educating people on
finances. A lot of people have
credit problems."
John Osmulski, chairman
of Venice's Planning Com-
mission, also suggested fixing
up existing homes.
"Shannon (Snyder) started
it," Osmulski said. "One of the
problems we have here is that
everyone expects to have a
new house. We don't look at
what we have. We don't fix
what we have; we tear it
down. We're a disposable
society. But fixing homes
doesn't cost that much."
Staub said that there are
many existing homes avail-
able.
"(People need to) under-
stand they can afford some-
thing on the market now, like
buying a used home and ren-
ovating it," Staub said. "The
other issue is to consider
things other than new homes.
There are oodles in Venice


that are not bad sizes. And
there are plenty in NorthPort,
especially in the older areas."
Michelle Barton of the
North Port Planning De-
partment said many people
are probably unaware of the
multiple assistance plans
available.
"I don't think people know
about assistance," she said.
"We have (General Develop-
ment Corporation) homes in
pre-platted areas that are per-
fect starter homes. They just
need revitalization.
Roland Piccone, chairman
of the Sarasota County Plan-
ning Commission, summed
up the meeting.
"I know what I need, and I
know what I would like,"
Piccone said.
"The needs and wants
aspect is very important.
People have to ask: Does my
income satisfy my needs? I'm
not ashamed to say I lived in a
12-foot-wide row house in
Philadelphia. It was a two-
bedroom, one-bath house,
and I shared a room with my
brother. People still live there
and raise families there.
"I think we could create a
(similar) urban setting very
easily," Piccone continued.
"People would be thrilled to
live in a new home like that.
People don't need a 3-2-2. It
could be something less -
we just have to be more real-
istic. But I think we're on the
right track."
Commissioner Vanessa
Carusone, who was also in
attendance, said she hopes
the education element is not

CORRECTION:
Due to incorrect information provided to the Gondolier Sun, a story on May 14 erroneously stated
Sarasota County had only a 4 percent participation in the Voluntary Prekindergarten Summer
Program. In fact, the participation rate is far greater, according to Janet Kahn, executive director of the
Early Learning Coalition, which runs the program. The state originally projected the county would
enroll 1,700 students in both the year-long program and summer program. Nearly 1,300 enrolled in
the school year program, with another 110 signed up for the summer program, which begins May 30.

element of surprise, it doesn't
alert the suspect," Jernigan
said. "We only use the light if
police on the ground want
an area lighted for a specific
reason."
Additionally, both pilot
and observer (observers
operate the camera), wear
special, night-vision goggles.
Nice numbers
The number of calls the
aviation unit racks up is
impressive.
In the most recent six
week period, the helicopter
answered 141 calls:
13 assisting other law
enforcement agencies
21 fire calls
198 fire drops (the heli-
copter drops water on a fire
from its 265-gallon belly
tank. During the six-week
period 45,540 gallons of wa-
ter were dropped on fires.)
13 missing persons


seven pursuit assists
six burglary assists
six robbery assists
four photo flights
64 miscellaneous assists
During that time period,
the helicopter logged 108.8
flight hours, of which 31.8
were at night and 77 during
the day.
By contrast, the fixed-wing
Baron only logged two flight
hours. Jernigan said that is
so pilots could stay profici-
ent with their instrument
ratings..
The men who fly Air-1
Only four men in the sher-
iff's department have Air-1
ratings: Jernigan, deputies
Steve Boone and Jeff Hesoun,
and Capt. Kevin Kenney.
Boone and Hesoun were
trained in-house by Kenney, a
helicopter flight instructor.
"Boone and Hesoun have
their commercial helicopter


and commercial instrument,
fixed-wing ratings," Jernigan
said.
Kenney, commander of
the South District and head
of the SWAT Team, is the
aviation unit's part-time
pilot. He was full-time prior to
a series of promotions that
necessitated other duties.
Kenney is a former military
pilot with thousands of flight
hours.
Jernigan, 42, also has
multi-engine fixed wing and
jet aircraft ratings, and has
more than 7,500 flight hours.
Jernigan said the agency
got the helicopter in October
2005.
"Since then, we've put 500
hours on it," he said. "We are
budgeted for 800 hours for
the year."

A THUMBNAIL HISTORY OF AVIATION IN LAW ENFORCEMENT:
There are more than 300 police aviation units in the United States, enough so that nearly every
major U.S. city's police department either has its own unit or can call on a neighboring one for help.
The world's first police helicopter, a Bell 47 on floats, arrived in New York City in 1948. The original
use of these early law enforcement aircraft was for aerial photography, traffic surveys and some search
work.
In 1965, the Los Angeles Police Department first used helicopters to fight crime when the Watts
riots erupted. They have now become a necessity in that city for fighting crime.
Some major cities have several helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft for law enforcement purposes.
IN OUR OWN BACKYARD
The Sarasota County Sheriffs Office has a 2005 Bell 407 helicopter and an "unmarked" twin-engine
Beech Baron:
The Baron is unmarked so as not to call attention to itself when it flies .to other airports. It is used for
duty such as travel for county officials, prisoner transport and certain search-ahd-rescue operations.
The six-passenger, pressurized Baron was purchased nearly two years ago for $3,000 as surplus
from the Department of Forestry. Today, its market value is between $250,000-$300,000. Its top speed
at 25,000 feet is 250 knots per hour, or about 300 mph.
The helicopter's top speed is 140 kph, or 160 mph, and it can reach an altitude of 18,000 feet.
The $2 million helicopter bears the word "SHERIFF" and a five-pointed sheriff's star on each side of
the fuselage.
Both aircraft are hangared at the Venice Municipal Airport.
The SCSO has three full-timhe pilots, one part-time pilot, five observers and one full-time civilian
mechanic.
Observers fly with the pilot at night and operate the infrared camera mounted under the heli-
copter's nose.

pWhiplash", -
" ^ is a non-medical
term that is used to describe a neck
S injury that is related to sudden
distortions of the neck, usually
caused when an automobile occupant is
'struck from behind. The most common
symptom is pain due to mild muscle strain or
minor tearing of the soft tissue. Other injuries
include nerve damage, disc damage, and in the
most severe cases, ruptures of ligaments in the
neck and fractures of the cervical vertebrae.
These symptoms may last a short time, or they
can last longer and include headaches, dizziness,
and tingling in the arms. It is suspected that the
biological cause of long-term whiplash symptoms
is nerve damage, which may be addressed with
chiropractic treatment.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH
CENTER, we readily understand the problems
involved in whiplash injuries. 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
1 1214-C Venice Ave. East. We offer massage
therapy and have 4 licensed massage therapists
on staff.
P.S. The headrest in an automobile is actually
a head restraint that is intended more to protect
ihe lead than to provide comfort.

mayor, and all have ruled out
running for mayor this fall.
Taylor and Willson said work
commitments would inter-
fere, though neither one said
they'd refuse nomination as
acting mayor.
Immediately after Cala-
maras' announcement, Tay-
lor considered making a run
for mayor. She previously
resigned her full-time health-
care position in favor of
being on-call; however, her"
position still is demanding.
"Being a mayor, I would
want to do it well," Taylor


"I do have that goal some
day, to be mayor. It's just
my time right now."
Bill Wills
Venice City Council mem



said. "It just has so many
social commitments, I don't
know that I'd have the time
to do that."
Willson's goal is to eventu-
ally become mayor, but hurri-
canes are causing headaches
at his insurance agency as he
and his staff attempt to find
coverage for "hundreds of
homeowners" who've had
their policies canceled.
"If it had been a year ago, I
would've said yes," Willson


PIER ifromnPag 1A


seven changes, some of
which have been added since
the application was filed with
the county.
The board ultimately
agreed, on the basis of grant-
ing due process.
The floating pier first
came before the board in
2002 and has since been
back at the staff or board level
11 times.


The original 686-foot long
pier was applied for and
denied outright in December
2002. It came back before the
board in July 2004 and the
board sought request for a
modification to reduce the
pier to 415 feet. That item was
approved 3-2 two weeks later.

said. "But right now, with
what's happening at the
agency, I'd be too busy. ... I do
have that goal I
some day, to
be mayor. It's .
just not my
time right
now."

Continuing
medical I
problems Bill Willson
with Tacy's
right leg led
to his decision. Tacy, a quad-
riplegic with no movement
or feeling below his
shoulders and only
limited use of his
arms, broke his leg last
not October and it- has
been reset twice. The
bones are now heal-
son, ing fine, but doctors
ber recently discovered a
nonaggressive form of
skin cancer on his
right foot and had to
cut out the tumor.
"I thought about it, but,
with my leg is still giving me
problems, I don't know if I
can give the (mayoral) job
what it takes,"
Tacy said. "

members ,
John Moore "
and John ""
Simmonds
could not be
reached for
comment.
Moore is out Rick Tacy
of the country
on vacation and will miss
next week's meeting.
A message was left for
Simmonds. He has said at
previous council meetings he


has no interest in being
named mayor.

this fall, and

Aside from
Hammett, the only other
name being mentioned for
mayor is former council
member David Farley, of
Farley Funeral Homes. Taylor
spoke with Farley at a social
event two weeks ago, and he
told her he was thinking
about running.
Farley declined to run for
re-election in 2003 because
he would have reached his
nine-year
term limit in
the middle of
his term, if he .
had been _
elected. =-
Farley was __
out of town
Friday and

reached for
comment.
If Hammett does run, that
means his regular council
seat would be open and an
election held for its unexpired
one-year term.
While that is speculation,
seats held by first-term mem-
bers Simmonds and Taylor
both expire. Taylor intends to
run for re-election, while
Simmonds has wavered on
whether he will run for anoth-

OUR VIEW




County deserves credit for acquiring land


governments are often criticized for
reacting rather than anticipating
needs. For example, government fail-
ure to foresee development routes often
leaves taxpayers paying more for road con-
struction rights of way than they would
have been assessed years earlier with proper
planning.
But when a government does something
right, when it takes an action that illustrates
foresight and a commitment to managing
growth, such an action deserves praise.
That's why Sarasota County's quiet ac-
quisition of land along Englewood's coast
near the Dearborn Street corridor merits


applause.
The area is growing rapidly, as businesses
are beginning to take root in the red bricks
and other amenities of a rebuilt downtown.
True, the pace has been slow. The Englewood
CRA, a tax-increment-financing district in
which revenues are plowed back into CRA-
area development, has been in existence
for about eight years but has only recently
begun to take off.
But as the fortunes of the Dearborn
Street corridor accelerate, the chances of
over-development, or a descent into the
tacky sort of strip mall commerce that
plagues many business zones, multiply.


That possibility underscores the importance
of the county land acquisitions.
Sun reporter Bob Reddy recently chroni-
cled a series of land purchases made by the
county. They include property at the extreme
end of West Dearborn Street on Lemon Bay,
two sites on Cherokee Street and a bayfront
lot at Mango and Dearborn streets.
All of the purchases are in key locations,
and have the potential to anchor properties
or facilities which could serve as gateway
or signature additions to the community.
For example, Lemon Bay Playhouse
supporters and organizers of a museum
devoted to Paul Gauguin are both lobbying


the county for use of the Mango and
Dearborn streets site.
Correctly, county officials are proceeding
slowly as they analyze future uses or the
possible sale of the properties. That's as it
should be, even as community groups and
others with an interest in the sites should
be presenting their best cases.
County officials were wise to acquire
the properties, as it gives taxpayers a hand
in determining how the Dearborn Street
corridor should be developed.
It offers all involved an opportunity to
act, rather than react, in the best interests
of our community.


A job with



many rewards


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

All the years as I have
been involved in the Venice
community I have never had
a chance to be ori a United
Way ,lund-alloeation, panel.
This year I got my chance. '
This is the culmination of
the United Way of South
Sarasota County fund drive
every year, where it is de-
cided how to allocate the
money to deserving agencies.
The United Way has given to
24 agencies for several years;
this year they are likely to
increase that number.
As you read about the
money being raised this year,
thanks go to the great Exe-
cutive Director Steve Brett
and Judy Wilcox, the cam-
paign chairwoman, and, of
course, the wonderful com-
munity support.
More than $650,000 has
been raised and we are still
going. We'd like to reach
$700,000. If they reach that'
number it will be an increase
of $100,000 over last year.
Behind the scenes at this
time of year the panels of
volunteers about 40
volunteers analyze closely
the requests of all the agen-
cies. Each one of the panels
scrutinizes about five agen-
cies, doing field visits and
investigating all aspects ofL
the projects they are apply-
ing for as well as their com-
mitment to South County.
What a wonderful experi-
ence.
I was lucky to be involved
with a very experienced
panel that included Paula

Dumas of Raymond James;
David Cornish, attorney;
Mike MacKenzie, MacKenzie
Printing and Advertising,
and David Barth, Publix. We
were analyzing organizations
that in most cases we were
not closely familiar with.
Each one of us took an
organization to scrutinize
from top to bottom. I decid-
ed to take an organization I
knew almost nothing about,
the Community Center for
the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
This organization, as it
turns out, is a very active and
interesting group headquar-
tered in Manatee County,
but with a full-time location
in Venice. The director,
Christopher Wagner, hap-
pens to be deaf. That is no
hindrance to his doing a very
dynamic and good job with


the organization.
,~,, eof:,e.t2ings they do
s mrake 'available all kinds
of telephones and telephone
keyboard equipment at ab-
solutely no charge. Each one
of us every month on our
phone bill pays 15 cents
toward the cost of this equip-
ment.
The state sends the agency
the six or seven kinds of
equipment that can be used
to help those in need. They
have phones with different
kinds of amplification for
those with hearing aids; most
have lights that flash. Many
-have readouts to accept
messages that. *.come- from.
message machines. -
They have interpreters
who can assist anyone who
is communicating with a
deaf person; sometimes
businesses or governments
need their service. They have
support groups, tutors, sign
classes, literacy help and
summer camps for youth.
They also help promote
7-1-1, which, like 9-1-1, is a
government service to allow
deaf people to communicate
with a special operator who
can accept oral or typed
messages and transfer them
to the intended part.
Our business has signed
up to be a partner, which
means we know about 7-1-1
and how it works. You can
learn all about that from
their office in Venice, which
is on Cypress Avenue behind
Bogey's.
We were impressed with all
the wonderful organizations
we interviewed and saw the
incredible work they are do-
ing for a very wide spectrum
of clients from those that
need to learn the English lan-
guage, to legal services for
battered individuals and peo-
ple losing their homes, to the
Girls Scouts with their huge
network of volunteers and
programs.
It was a wonderful experi-
ence. If you think you might
enjoy doing this next year to
learn more about the com-
munity you live in arid the
agencies that serve us, you
can call the United Way office.
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice uses
some volunteers to do sim-
ilar work on its grant re-
quests. You might give
GCCFV a call also.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



VHS not going anywhere soon


Editor:
Despite this paper's recent headline of "VHS' relocation
more than rumors," I want to make this perfectly clear to
the Venice community: the school district has. no plans to
relocate Venice High School in the near future.
The school has been on the island for more than 50 years
and through the decades has held thousands of football
games, graduations, plays and dances. It has been an inte-
gral part of the community. However, only about 80-100 of
the school's 2,108 students live on the island today.
This spring, the school district has invested approximately
$3.2 million dollars in repair Work and renovation to 12 science
classrooms. But there are 21 portable classrooms that need
replacing, as well as other areas of the school that need to be
remodeled and brought up to current codes and 21st-century
learning standards.
I would like to invite the people of Venice to engage in a
public discussion on what is best for students and taxpayers.
We are in the planning, stages for a series of community
forums to bring out facts, figures and options and to get
your response. Please watch for an announcement of those
upcoming dates,
I look forward to the opportunity to envision the Venice
High School's future with you.
Dr. Gary Norris
Superintendent of Schools


Happy to shop
elsewhere
Editor:
We do not need or want a
large commercial center in
beautiful Englewood.
We do not understand,
why the county commission-
ers are allowing such de-
struction to come to Engle-'
woodi We have shopping
centers, Home Depot, Lowe's,
etc., 20 minutes to the south
in Port Charlotte. We have
shopping centers and the big
box stores 10 to 15 minutes
in Venice to the north. Why
ruin our town and bring so
much more traffic conges-
tion on our busy roads?
We have so much traffic
now, especially when our
northern friends and families
visit. Accidents happen every
day on State Road 776 and the
commissioners, by allowing
this large retail development,
will only add to more traffic
problems.


We love Englewood just
the way it is. We are here
because it is a piece of par-
adise.

Don't lend
money to
Congress
Editor:
Taxpayers who are getting
the average $2,400 tax return
this year are actually getting
their own money back with
no interest.
In other words, they have
lent money to the govern-
ment for one year because
they allowed the government
to deduct too much in taxes,
based on their tax bracket
and deductions. Uncle Sam
collected about $10 billion
extra.
Furthermore, inflation ate
up at least 3 percent of that
money, therefore giving the
taxpayer less buying power.


Gasoline prices alone, for
example, were about 70 per-
cent less in 2005 than they
are now.
I urge every taxpayer to
go to.their employers or pay-
roll clerks now, and find out
exactly how much should be
deducted from their salaries.
It's nice to receive a lump
sum at one time. But it's bet-
ter to have that extra money
in your pocket each week.
Politicians will always
find ways to squander your
money. Don't let them do it.
Keep your money!

Disgusted
with Bush

Editor:
Bush will never be ac-
countable for his job as
president. He lives off the fat
of our land.
Gas prices up he does- '
n't care, he flies free on Air
Force One. Waves on and off
and his cocky smile. If he
needs more money, he goes
to the treasury while we
have Americans in need of
help. He couldn't care less.
Our boys dying in Iraq.
Again, he couldn't care less.
Send him over why let the
rest do his dirty work? He
wants to go down in history.
For what? No wonder every-
one looks for a seat at the
White House.
I never was so disgusted
with a president as I am with
Bush. He'll run us into the
ground, then retire on all
our money.
He loves to be on TV For
whose benefit?
The capture of Saddam
- he killed many and gets
room and board. Free living.
Find bin Laden; you can give
him all that, too.
All I can say is, hurry and


get out of our country. I'm
ashamed to have a man like
that as president. The world
is in a mess thanks to you,
Bush.

Hybridize to
economize
Editor:
The current issue of Sierra
magazine notes that a recent
study comparing the envi-
ronmental health of 133
nations ranks the United
States 28th in the world,
trailing Chile, Columbia,
Japan, Malaysia, Slovakia,
and Taiwan, as well as most
ofWestem Europe.
The same issue notes that
by using hybrid and other
existing technologies, U.S.
automakers could manufac-
ture new cars, trucks and
SUVs that would all average
40 miles per gallon by 2016,
according to the Union of
Concerned Scientists. This
would save 2 million barrels
of oil per day almost as
much as we import from the
Persian Gulf.

The new headquarters for
the Venetian Waterway Park
and Venice Area Beautifi-

quarters is the old chamber

Speaking of the path, I was
in Athens, Ohio, over the
weekend for my sister-in-
law's 60th birthday, and got a
chance to see the walkway
they have along the Hocking
River. The portion of this
26-mile trail near the Ohio
University campus had at-
tractive street lights and, of
course, there were trees,
which we so sorely need on
our trail.

Mary. and .Orval Paxson

The neat thing in the paper
was an article on the front
page about the pigs they were,
featuring around town as a
chamber of commerce com-
munity arts project. The
paper quoted the head of
the project, Katie Andros,
saying her father, George
Kutsunis, visited Venice, Fla.,
where they did pigs as an
art project.
She mentioned that peo-
ple had asked if pigs were
the right image for Genesco

paper: "We're an agricultural

Next Wednesday the last

The children's fountain is
still waiting for two solenoids
from the contractor, who
has been quite slow through-
out the project. After they,
come and get installed, they
have to be tested further by
the city. I wonder if city

Speedy Southeast outguns Indians


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


There s no

place like

no home


Every year, the Venice High
wrestling team is ranked in
the state's top 10.
The Indians send a bunch
to the state tournament in
Lakeland each year. There are
an abundance of state cham-
pions, runnerups, third plac-
ers and fourth players.
The coaching staff is
respected around the state.
You think they'd get a little
more respect in-house.
Like the proverbial red-
headed stepchild, the Indian
wrestlers once again don't
have a place they can call
their own.
Going back a few years, the
Indian matmen had their
wrestling trailer. It was short
on luxury, but at least it was a
place they could call home.
Then, a couple of years
ago, the wrestlers were moved
to the south gym. It was more
spacious.
When they redid the floor
in the south gym, the mat-
men were once again relocat-
ed. They got the weight room.
This was fine while it lasted.
The only problem is, it didn't
last long.
The wrestlers are now back
in the south gym again. The
thing is, it's not just their
home. They must roll up the
mats and tidy up after each
practice.
You get the feeling they'd
just be happy to get their old
trailer back. ,

Jack Hudson, long time
manager and player for the
Center for Sight senior soft-
ball team, suffered .a heart
attack a week ago Wednes-
day and had to undergo six
bypasses a week ago, Friday.
Jack is home now and recu-
perating. A quick get-well and
hopefully you'll be back out at
the Bypass fields soon.

Brian Wheatley, the volley-
ball guru of these parts, says
that enrollment in his annual
Wild West VolleyballCamp is
down.
Coming off a state champi-
onship season, that is a bit
surprising.
The Wild West Volleyball
Camp always draws well. ,
We heard reports that
response to other annual
sports camps baseball for
one are also down.
There is still time to get in
onWheatley's camp. It begins
Tuesday night at the high
school north gym. The camp
will have one session from 6-
8:30 p.m. nightly. Girls head-
ing into grades 5-9 are invited
to participate. For more infor-
mation, call 483-3242.

Class of 2006 La dwth ede hp


77th annual VHS commencement


Men in green hats and
gowns. Women in white. All
seniors. Walking the slow walk
for what seems like forever
and a day, until they hear their
name called, step up on the
shaky commencement stage,
receive their diploma, get
congratulated by a dignitary
from the Sarasota County
School Board, and take a look
out at the cheering crowd.
In a second it's over.
It's a ritual they won't soon*
forget high school gradua-
tion May 19, 2006, on the
grounds of the Venice High
football field where it has
never rained on the outdoor
graduation ceremony un-
der the lights with the stands
full, where everyone cheers
and there are no losers.
Whether they heard it or
not, cheers and applause
went up for every single name
called honoring a graduating
senior all 469.


The VHS class of 2006 stands as the colors are presented.

"A friend once told me life is like a hallway filled with

doors, not a box of chocolates. ... Every door leads

down a different path. When you open the first door

and walk through you never come back. Life is too

short to waste. Take the time to decide which door

you want to open, but don't stand in the hallway too

long as life passes you by."

"When I think about our class entering the next phase of life, I have no doubts about all the mission
impossible we will bi able to conquer. Remember that the puzzle of life is not made out of one big
piece. Instead, it needs myriads of different pieces to function. Pieces that always look brand new
and sparkle to the eye, pieces that are awkward and try their best to not fit in, pieces that are big,
pieces that are small, pieces that are bluish-green in color, even pieces that are so fragmented and
torn one wonders how these pieces will ever make it. Tonight we have created a green-and-white
mosaic of success."

High school lesson becomes a lesson about life


BYJOEL FO TER
CORRESPONDENT

Natalie Twigg drew in a
breath, looked at her palms
pressed; together in her lap,
and sad quietly, "It was
extremely overwhelming."
It was in October 2004. The
two dau hters of Natalie and
Steve Twigg were diagnosed
with cyVtic fibrosis, a life-
threatening genetic disease.
Alexandria was 8 and Afin-
drianna was just 1.
SAlexandria had been dis-
playing a persistent cough
and recurring stomach prob-
lems, T vigg recalled. One
morning at her shop, Natalie's
Salon on the Tamiami Trail in
Sarasotaj Natalie experienced
an epiphany of sorts.
"I was listening to a client
who had had a granddaugh-
ter diagnosed with CE" she
said. "The more I listened, the
more it sounded as though
she were talking about Alex-
andria."
Ironically, the Twigg's fami-,
ly doctor, also a client at the
salon, was in for an appoint-
ment the following day.
"I told her the story," Twigg
recalled, "and she scheduled
blood work for me to deter-
mine if Iwas a carrier."
The tests were returned -
positive.,
Immediately concerned,
she scheduled Alexandria for
tests with All Children's Hos-
pital while husband Steve had
blood work done also; al-
though one in 31 Americans
is a symptomless carrier of
the defective gene, to actually
have the disease, the child
must inherit that one defec-
tive gene'from each parent.
Even at that, there is still only
a 25 percent chance that the
child will have CE
When both Twiggs were
confirmed as carriers, they
came face-to-face with the
bottom line of fear: Alex-
andria's tests were returned.
She had been diagnosed with
cystic fibrosis.
Immediately, they sched-
uled another test, called a
sweat test the standard for-
mat for rendering a diagnosis
- for Aundrianna, the
younger of their only two chil-
dren.
A process taking 30 to 60
minutes, a sweat test consist
of ,a swdat-collecting device,
gauze for example, placed on
the child's skin; an odorless
chemical is then applied that
causes the child to sweat; or
electrodes niay be placed
over the chemical to deliver a
painless current that helps to
produce sweat, which is then
analyzed for sodium and
chloride, components also
found in blood, sweat and
tears.


"The easy life stopped,"
she said, referring to the romp
and play and will-o-the-wisp
carefreeness of -childhood.
"It's another life now, a time to
adjust to changes."
Those changes can occur
every two months as the girls.
are retested for any dev\elop-
ments, positive or negative;
prescribed medications or
dosages may change depend-
ing upon test results.
As it is, among many
changes due to the insidious
nature of the disease, the chil-
dren must take pancreatic
enzyme supplements with all
foods consumed, other than
fresh fruits and'vegetables, or
the digestive system could
become obstructed. Their
bodies would not be absorb-
ing the level of nutrients nec-
essary for normal growth.
The need to breathe
As much of a change as is
the constant ingestion of pills
for a child, it pales in compar-
ison to the most basic need of
simply being able to breathe.
The girls must both use a
nebulizer and VEST to insure
that basic need.
"Our mornings start at
5:30," Natalie said, explaining
the family regimen that has
become ingrained. "Alexan-
dria uses the albuterol aerosol
puffer to open her airways
before beginning a 20-minute
VEST treatment, which will
loosen phlegm," in this case a
thick, sticky mucus caused by
CF affecting breathing and
making it difficult to get air
into the lungs.
The VEST, according to the


er to clear from the airways by
having a child cough.
While Aundrianna, now 3,
takes her turn at the morn-
ing's regimen, Alexandria will
start breakfast by taking the
first of 15-20 enzymes she will
swallow during the day, along
with the CF-prescribed vita-
mins and the allergy medica-
tions.
Before her breakfast be-
gins, Aundrianna will ingest
the first of 10 enzymes to help
her small body get the nutri-
ents it needs to grow and be
healthy, along with extra cal-
cium, iron, vitamins and
allergy medications.
As regular as clockwork, all
will be repeated in the eve-
ning after Alexandria has en-
joyed a day.as a fourth-grade
student at Gulf Gate Ele-.
mentary, and Aundrianna has
spent her morning at pre-
school and afternoon with the
Twigg's housekeeper Rena
Beans, who has been with
family well before the diagno-
sis turned lives upside down.
Bean has even accompanied
them to the hospital to be-
come fully aware of the dos
and don'ts of caring for the
children.
'Alexandria also has to take
an extra nebulizer in the
evening," Natalie said. "The
treatment, accompanied by
additional medication, pul-
mozyne, will be needed for the
rest of her life to assist in fight
against the hardening of the
lungs and bronchial tubes.
The cycle is something dint
cannot be broken.
Nor can the spirit in the
Twigg household be broken.

"They are amazing girls,"
Natalie said unabashedly of her

once asked the 'why me?' type
of questions.'Alexandria has
become an advocate, teaching
other children about CF, trying
to get everyone to walk in the
Great Strides walk-a-thon f6r
CF ... she wants to find a cure.


Aundrianna, 3, and Alexandria Twigg, 10, have both been
diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, a debilitating and life-threat-
ening illness. They will be walking as the A&A Sister Team in
the Great Strides walk at the Polo Club May 20 at 8 a.m. to
raise money for a cure.


She just approaches'it as a
normal kid doing normal kid
things but just having to be
, careful."
Elizabeth "Libby" Sau-
nooke, fourth-grade teacher
of the gifted and talented at
Gulf Gate Elementary, echoes
the "assessment concerning
her pupil, Alexandria. ..
"She's very special," Sau-
nooke said. "Unless you knew
of her condition, it would be
impossible to tell. She's very
active and participates fully.
Because of CF her complex-
ion is a bit dull, but other than
that, she's a bundle of energy,
very open and knowledgeable
about the disease."
Saunooke also admits to
being worried when the
school year began after meet-
ing and talking with the
Twiggs at a "Meet the Teacher
Night," last year.
"'What will I do?' I asked
myself afterward that eve-
ning." she said. "But, I guess
after raising six children and
'having 17 grandchildren,'' the
reality of it simply being a lit-
tle girl with a different health
problem became the guiding
force."
"She's gutsy," Saunooke
said. "The kids all love her to


pieces. They were told about
Alexandria, CF, and her need
to take enzymes. It didn't
phase them in the least."
Saunooke ald .credits the.
attitude of Alexandria's class-
mates who have responded
since the year's beginning to
her philosophy of the class
being a large family and fam-
ilies take care of one another.
"But no one babies her,"
she said. "She's just a regular
little girl who needs different
things, special in a positive
way. As a matter of fact,
Alexandria misses less school
than some of the others."
And mom and dad?
"We enjoy and are thankful
for what we have," Natalie
said. "Every day in my busi-
ness, it seems as though I
hear about someone worse
off than we are. We don't dwell
on the girls having CE
"You've got be positive,
keep growing. You can't stop
living. For anyone facing a
similar situation, I say be-
come as knowledgeable as
you can. Whatever your faith,
believe in it'strongly. Get regi-
mented to the treatments, be.
consistent, stay in contact
with the doctors."
In a quiet after thought,


she added, "You want to keep
them here as longas you can."
In the case of cystic fibro-
sis, with the advances made
in research, the median age of
survival is now the mid-30s;
however, in "Cystic Fibrosis
No Longer a Fatal Disease," an
article in Exceptional Parent
Magazine, author Jane Brav-
erman, PhD, wrote "when
receiving state-of-the-art
therapy in treatment centers
specializing in CF care ... fully
half of Americans now living
with CF are expected to sur-
vive well into their third (even
fourth and fifth) decades,
some even reaching old age."
For the Twiggs, that ray of
hope strengthens an already
positive attitude, for as
Natalie phrases it,'"It's a per-
fect day when I see them play
... happy ... just being kids.
But it will be the ultimate per-
fect day when they find a cure
... and they are getting close."
For this family in which
emotional strength, belief
and love will extend the hori-
zons for their children, getting
close will never be close
enough.
You can bet two lives on it.

where the trail begins but
where it ends.

Venice High takes its hats offfor Cystic Fibrosis


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER


SVenice High School stu-
dents learn that business is
involved in everything, even
philanthropy.
The Future Business Lead-
ers of America Club (FBLA) at
Venice High School in associ-
ation with PGT Industries
have formed their own corpo-
ration aimed at the free enter-
prise system.
The FBLA is an extracurric-
ular activity for students at
Venice High. It teaches them
essential business skills to
prepare them for the work-
force that lies ahead.
Ordinarily, the FBLA at
Venice High focused on state
level competitions, such as
oration and technological
evaluations.' However, this
year, Nancy Brantley, the
group's advisor for nine years,
decided to do what the stu-
dents wanted: to make and


run their own business. Thus
began V-Hatz, the group's
organization.
The process of creating the
business was a year-long
event. The goal was to start
the business, create a prod-
uct, market the product and
eventually liquidate the busi-
ness.
The product
What any for-profit busi-
ness needs is a product to sell,
and the students of the FBLA
of Venice had no easy time
deciding on what to market.
Some early suggestions were
health food, car accessories
and belts. But in the end, the
group settled on hats.
"We wanted to have a
product that everyone could
use and enjoy," said Elizabeth
Eng, the group's secretary.
"That is why we finally decid-
ed on hats."
Once the group decided
on a product, they wanted to


add a design that reflected the
pride of the student body.
Jake Johnston, a member of
Venice High's FBLA, donated
a bright green stencil of a
fierce Indian,i Venice High's
mascot, to the cause. With
their product in place and
ready to sell, the students
were then ready to hit the
pavement.
Of course, the group need-
ed guidance on how to run
their company. PGT Indus-
tries, a maker and seller of
hurricane glass, stepped up
to the plate to help these
young businesspeople. Vol-
unteers from the organiza-
tion gave advice on finance,
production and marketing,
business' key departments.
These.volunteers showed the
students how to keep tabs on
their inventory, how to mar-
ket their product effectively
and how to manage their
accounts.


Nancy Brantley, Elizabeth Eng and Lindsay Gehrls show off the
FBLA hats that V-Hatz produced and marketed.


The cause
The FBLA at Venice High
had no intention of keeping
the revenue for themselves.
Part of the challenge of mak-
ingV-Hatz was deciding what
to do with the money.
"Initially, we were going to


donate our profits to the Red
Cross, to help with Hurricane
Katrina victims. Then Ms.
Brantley introduced us to
Alexandria and Aundrianna
Twigg," Lindsay Gehrls, presi-
dent of the Venice High FBLA,
said.


Alexandria, age 10, and
Aundrianna Twigg, age 3,
both suffer from Cystic
Fibrosis. CF is an intestinal
and respiratory illness, and its
victims are usually not
expected to live past 30.
People with CF have to
undergo several uncomfort-
able daily treatments with
their lungs just to be able to
live normal lives. These two
young girls have a dream to
help find a cure for CE
When the Venice High
FBLA learned of the two girls
and their plight to help other
people with CF the group
wanted to help. They decided
to learn more about CF and
its research foundations. The
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
allots 90 percent of its dona-
tions to research to find a.
cure.
One of the tactics used to
sell the hats was on the stu-

Mayor proclaims May 20-26 Safe Boating Week


BYAL BIDWICK
GUEST WRITER

At the last meeting of the
Venice City Council, Mayor
Dean Calamaras presented a
proclamation to Don Parrish,
Commander of the Venice
Power Squadron and to Judi
Bidwick, vice commander of
the United States Coast
Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 86,
endorsing National Safe
Boating Week, May 20-26.
The mayor, who retired May
9, is a longtime boater. He ex-
pressed appreciation for the
educational and operational
programs of the organi-
zations in supporting the
needs of the Venice com-
munity and helping to insure
that the waterways are
safe.
The goal of National Safe
Boating Week is to heighten
awareness among recrea-
tional boaters of the impor-
tance of always wearing a
life jacket. People have op-
tions when it comes to to-


day's modern life jackets.
New inflatable versions offer
a complete range of move-
ment. Life jackets are even
customized for hunting,
angling and paddling, or
high impact water-sports,
such as water-skiing, wake-
boarding and riding motor-
ized personal watercraft.
Recent Coast Guard sta-
tistics reveal that there were
676 recreational boating
fatalities on the water in
2004. Approximately 70 per-
cent of all fatalities drowned
(484 out of 676). Approxi-
mately 90 percent of the vic-
tims who drowned were not
wearing their life jackets.
Overall, fatal accident data
show approximately 431 lives
could have been saved if
boaters had worn their life
jackets.

A fun boat should be a safe boat


EDITOR'S NOTE: National Safe
Boating Week runs May 20-26.
BYAL BIDWICK
GUEST WRITER

While it's a matter of opin-
ion what a fun boat is, one
can immediately identify a
"Safe Boat" because the own-
er displays the free "Vessel
Safety Check" decal/sticker
on the port (left) side wind-
shield of his boat.
-The United States Coast
Guard Auxiliary offers boaters


a free, voluntary vessel safety
check and inspection to en-
sure their boats and the
equipment aboard comply
with Coast Guard regulations.
If no problems are found, a
vessel safety check sticker is
given to the boater. If a boat
fails to meet the standards,
the boater is urged to correct
the problem prior to a re-
check of only those discrep-
ancies. No fines or tickets
are issued by the Auxiliary,
which is not involved in law
enforcement.


On the other hand, invol-
untary inspections some-
times occur when the Coast
Guard, Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Officers, sheriff
or police board a boat. These
agencies have the authority
,to randomly board vessels to
make inspections. They will
check to determine that boat
numbers are properly dis-
played and a registration
certificate is on board, life
jackets are available for each
person aboard, visual dis-
tress signals and sound pro-


during devices are available
as are fire extinguishers,
navigation lights work prop-
erly, flares are current, ma-
rine sanitation devices (if
installed) comply with state
and local regulations, batter-
ies are securely fastened and
terminals covered, and the
overall condition of the boat
is safe. Owners whose boats
fall short of compliance will
be issued a written warning
or a citation.
Vessel Examiners from
Flotilla 86 in Venice frequent-


ly conduct safety checks at
marinas and boat ramps. In
fact, they will even drive to
your house to check your
boat. Boaters who launch
from the Venice Train Depot
ramp can get a check from
Patrick Wheeler most Satur-
day mornings, 8:30 a.m.-
noon. Tell him you read this
article. Have fun on your
safe boat!

Venice Gondolier Sun

SUNDAY
MAY 21, 2006 L


The Venice area is chang-
ing; there, I've said it. Recent-
ly I completed my 31st year
with the Florida Park Service
and my 19th year here in the
Venice area. For all this time
I have been actively involv-
ed with the management
and preservation of some of
the most beautiful areas we
have in our great state.
From the Georgia border
to the Keys, I have worked
for the betterment of the nat-
ural communities alongside
many outstanding local orga-
nizations and governmental
agencies. Yet, it is' here in


Sarasota County that I have
been most impressed with
the .public involvement in
protecting the environment.
Your action is the key to the
success of this community,
and it is a wonderful place.
Surely, it is the beauty of
this area that means the
most to us, sharing a sense
of harmony with wildlife like
scrub jays and sea turtles,
and marveling in the unique-
ness of pure white sand, both
on our heavily used beaches
and in the severely threat-
ened scrubby Flatwoods.
Truly, we are still an oasis, a
place for refreshment after a
long journey. Oscar Scherer
State Park has always been
an oasis. Starting thousands
of years ago, early Native
Americans were canoeing up
South Creek looking for food
and shelter; to the Snowbirds
RVing their way to our county
every winter.
Recently a national camp-
ing reservation organization.
honored the Florida Parks
Service in its annual awards
for America's Top Outdoor
Locations: Reserve America
recognized Florida State


Parks in 14 categories and
Oscar Scherer was voted as
one of the Top 100 Family
Campgrounds, one of the
Top 10 Bird-Watching Spots,
and one of the Top 25 Hik-
ing Trails and that's before
the Rails to Trails is even
opened.
These are just some of the
reasons people come to
Sarasota County and more
visitors mean more of every-
thing; traffic, waiting, pollu-
tion, and refuse. With all this,
we are becoming more and
more of an "island." To Keep
Sarasota County Beautiful,
we must address these things.
I like to write about the
Wildlife the plants and
animals that exist together
in a natural condition. I
guess because of my position
in the community, I am one
of the spokesmen for these
habitats, their defender. But I
am not alone; many people
in this community are part
of that defense team. Numer-
ous citizens and civic as well
as governmental organiza-
tions help protect the natural
resources for future genera-
tions.
William Hazlitt, an English
essayist (1778-1830), said,
"We do not see nature with
Sour eyes, but with our under-
standings and our hearts."
Hazlett also said, "Man is the
only animal that laughs and
weeps, for he is the only ani-
mal that is struck with the
difference between what
things are and what they
ought to be."
What they ought to be are
healthy, vibrant, harmonious
working parts of a whole. So,
if people learn to respect the

All-natural sugar fits


today's healthy lifestyles


STAFF REPORT


Amid growing concerns
about preservatives, more
and more health-conscious
consumers are looking to
natural foods. In the process,
many have rediscovered an
old favorite: sugar. Of the 26
sweeteners commonly used
in food today, few are all-
natural like sugar.
Sugar can be a natural,
healthy part of a balanced
lifestyle. A basic carbohy-
drate, it provides essential
fuel for muscles, organs and


brain functions. The sucrose
in your sugar bowl is the
same as the sucrose in fruits
and vegetables..
A teaspoon of sugar has
only 15 calories but, surveys
show, most Ainericans be-
lieve in contains 75 or more.
This may be one reason
consumers use artificial
sweeteners.
Things that, sound too
good to be true. however,
usually are. The calorie sLa-

Chemistry makes artificial

than sugar and change the

Artificial sweeteners don't
bake the same as sugar either.
Sugar helps dough rise and
adds texture, body and flavor.
While some blame sugar

Poison Control helps educate

and isn't just for emergencies.

Which do you think would
be more dangerous if swal-
lowed by a child? A. Calamine
lotion B. Bleach C. Arthritis
pain relief ointment
If you said bleach, you're
wrong. According to Bonnie'
McDougal, a community
educator with the Florida
Poison Control Center at
Tampa General Hospital, a
child will swallow plenty of
bleach simply swimming in
a backyard pool.
"And calamine lotion -is
inert," McDougal recently
told members of the North
Port Community Health Ac-
tion Team. "When you put it
on a child, it's going to get
all over their hands, and they
might accidentally lick it off
if they rub their arm across
their face.
"The most dangerous is
actually arthritis pain relief
ointment. It has a high as-
pirin content, which can be
very dangerous to children.
"It often smells like mint,"
McDougal continued, "be-
cause manufacturers put
things in it to make it smell
good. And if a child smells it
and thinks it smells good,
they might think it's OK to
eat."
Diabetes pills and blood
pressure pills, which lower
blood sugar and blood pres-
sure, respectively, are also


doesn't cause diabetes. Ac-
t 'cording... to. the American
Diabetes Association (ADA),
diabetics' can' eat moderate
.amounts'of stgar as long as
the\ count it in their carbo-
hydrate allowance.'The ADA


extremely dangerous when
swallowed by children.
McDougal gives a number
of presentations every year
to parenting groups such as
"Mommy and Me."
"I caution moms about
look-alikes and candy versus
medicine," she said.
"Sudafed looks an awful
lot like an M&M. Never tell
kids that medicine is candy."
Pure salt can also be ex-
tremely dangerous to chil-
dren. When CHAT members
asked how salt could possi-
bly be harmful, McDougal
gave a surprising answer.
"Some people make kids
eat salt for a punishment,"
she explained. "Two table-
spoons can be toxic for a
child."
She also said that while it
takes patience to have child-
locks on all kitchen cabinets,
it's a good precaution to
take, especially with lower
cabinets that may contain
cleaning supplies and chem-
icals.
"Kids are only small for a
while," McDougal added.
McDougal said the Poison
Control Center can help
with more than just house-
hold-related questions and
parenting concerns.
"We do neat presentations
on snakes and critters," she
said. 'And there are whole
presentations on plants."
McDougal also offers edu-
cational presentations to


EMS workers, hospital staffs,
students and seniors, and
she. occasionally speaks at
industry .safety meetings.
Spanish-speaking presenters
are also available.
There are any number of
topics on which the Poison
Control Center can answer
questions. These include
plants and mushrooms,
household products, med-
ication overdoses, bites and
stings, food poisoning, sub-
stance abuse and chemicals
and gases.
McDougal stressed that
nonemergency calls are wel-
come.
"You can call just to ask
questions," she said. "We are
open 24/7/365 and can take
calls from 18 countries. We're
open during hurricane sea-
son, and we can also help
you if your pet is poisoned.
In fact, about 10 percent of
our calls are about pets."
McDougal said that ap-
proximately 70 percent of
the calls the Poison Control
Center receives can be han-
dled in the home, and that
even if. EMS workers are
called to a house, often
those workers call Poison
Control on their way to the
hospital. :

ter Helpline is (800) 222-

Q. My husband cannot
retrieve messages from our
answering machine because
he cannot understand the
words of the recorded
messages. He says the voices
are loud but not clear and he
says people talk too fast
when leaving their messages.
What will help this
situation?
A. There is new answering
machine available specifically
for hearing impaired persons. It
has a powerful amplifier and a
high fidelity speaker which
produces distortion free sound.
It is very easy to operate and
comes ready to go with a
prerecorded message. Most
importantly, the speed of the
recorded messages can be
adjusted to allow your husband
to replay them at a slower rate.
The cost of this answering
machine is comparable to
others on the market but this
machine must be special
ordered. To find out more

SUNDAY SENIOR SCENE
MAY 21, 2006


Dear Savvy Senior,
I'm 56 years old and in pretty
good health, but recently I've
noticed a constant ringing in my
ears that's very irritating. What
can you tell me about this and is
there anything I can do? -
Ringing Randy
Dear Randy,
The ringing in your ears
could be a condition called
tinnitus (ti-NIGHT-us), a
common problem that
affects nearly 50 million
Americans. Here's what you
should know.
Tinnitus
Tinnitus is the sensation of
hearing a ringing, buzzing,
roaring, hissing or whistling
sound in one or both ears
when no external sound is
present. The sounds, which
can vary in pitch and loud-
ness, are usually worse when
background noise is low, so
you may be most aware of it
at night when you're trying to
fall asleep in a quiet room.
For most people tinnitus is
Smerely annoying. but for i
many others it can be
extremely disturbing.
Causes
It's important to know that

o//face/ z/7y a& to /oaedan/ e
BROUGHTTOYOU BY:




A division of Sun Coast Media Group, Inc.,
i publishers of the Sun Herald Newspapers ,


tinnitus is not a disease, but a
symptom that can be caused
by a variety of medical condi-
tions. The best way to find
out what's causing your tin-
nitus is to get a complete
physical examination,
including a thorough hearing
test. The various things that
can cause tinnitus are:
Age: The natural process
of aging can result in dam-
aged or deteriorated auditory
cells in the inner ear causing
hearing loss leading to tin-
nitus. This process usually.
begins around age 60.
Loud noise: The most
common cause of tinnitus
and hearing loss is exposure
to loud noises. In fact about
90 percent of all tinnitus
patients have some level of
noise-induced hearing loss.
Earwax: A build-up of
wax deep in the ear canal can
cause temporary tinnitus and
hearing loss. Have your ears
check and if necessary,
cleaned.
Medication: More than
200 different drugs can cause
ringing ears, including
aspirin especially when
taken in high doses. For a list
of drugs that can cause tinni-
tus call the American
Tinnitus Association at (800)
634-8978.
Medical conditions:
Various medical conditions
can also cause tinnitus such
as high blood pressure, vas-
cular disease, allergies, thy-
roid problems, ear or sinus
infections, Meniere's disease,
,otosclerosis, temporo- .. '
miandibularjoint.(TMJ) syn-
drome, a tumor, an injury to
the head or neck and more.
Treating tinnitus
While there's currently no
cure for tinnitus there are
some ways to treat it,
depending on the cause. For
example if your tinnitus is
caused by a medical condi-
tion (high blood pressure,
thyroid problems, etc.) treat-
ing the condition may reduce
or eliminate the noise. Or, if
you think a medication
you're taking may be causing
the problem, switching to a
different drug, or lowering
the dosage may provide


some relief. But, if the noise
in your ears is due to age-
related hearing loss or dam-
age to your ears by exposure
to excessive noise there is
no treatment. There is how-
ever some things you can do
to reduce the severity of the
noise, including:
Avoiding irritants:
Tinnitus can be aggravated
by loud noises, nicotine, caf-
feine, tonic water, alcohol
and various medications.
Cover the noise: In a
quiet setting, a fan, soft
music or a white noise
machine can help mask the
noise from tinnitus. For some
people, tinnitus makers (a
device that looks like a hear-
ing aid) that produce a pleas-
ant noise may also help.
Hearing aid relief: If your
tinnitus is accompanied by
hearing loss, hearing aids can
amplify outside sounds,
making the tinnitus noise
less obvious.
Stress management:
Stress can make tinnitus
worse. Stress management,
whether through relaxation
therapy, biofeedback or exer-
cise, may provide some relief.
Savvy tips
While there's currently no
drugs approved by the FDA
to treat tinnitus, anti-anxiety
drugs, antidepressants and
antihistamines have been
known to help. Alternative
treatments like ginkgo bilo-
ba, zinc, magnesium and
acupuncture are also worth
* looking into.-Arother option
Sto consider is tinnitus ., ..
retraining therapy, which can
help you retrain your mind to
ignore the noise. As always,
talk to your doctor before try-
ing any new treatments. For
more information on treating
or managing tinnitus, or to
locate a tinnitus health care
specialist in your area, visit
ata.org or call (800) 634-8978.

A friend and I have a say-

done that!" I have some
yuppy aged friends living in
the area who, like squirrels,
are constantly scampering
around to collect enough
food for their winter months. I
sit in my wheelchair and lis-
ten to their dizzy pace as they
travel, go to lectures, church,
plays, out to dinner and golf. I
cannot imagine any area in
the country with so many
advantages so close by. Every
day I hear of some new attrac-
tion or new place to dine.
To me, the most interesting
place in Sarasota is the Mote
Marine Laboratory. Their
medical research is just one of

so many kinds of research,
such as trying to solve the red
tide nuisance. I found it far
more interesting if you go on
a day when it's not overly
crowded. And take the guided
tour with a docent.
I was always fascinated by
Myakka State Park. I never
will forget one day when we
were taking a boat trip, an alli-
gator popped his head out of
the water right under a lily
pad and swam a long dis-
tance with a lily pad halo! We
found a little creek near the
bird walk with picnic tables
and a group of us ate our
lunch in an old, secluded sto-
rybook setting near a huge
like oak tree shading the quiet
waters.
But there are so many
things, like the Van Wezel
Performing Arts in Sarasota.
What are your favorite places
to visit in the. state? I know
what my three places are or
maybe I should say were. I
had trouble deciding what
order I wanted to put them in
and I came up with Edison
House in Fort Myers,, space
center in Cape Canaveral and
Epcot. I know they have
added many additional sights

children in town know Mr. C.
No matter what the agen-

to visit classrooms and talk to
boys and girls about his fos-
sils. He is a terrific teacher


even explaining to children
the importance of his Indiana
Jones hat.
Over these years our fami-
lies celebrated Dean's victo-
ries and cheered;behind 'the'
camera as he was interviewed
by TV stations after winning
elections. Our daughters are
best friends. We've laughed at
stories of Dean's late night
trips to the refrigerator to
make his famous milkshakes.
We thank Dean for his ser-
vice and already miss our
good friend, Mr. C.

Historic Homes & Gardens train tour was grand and luxe


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is part
two of a series. In part one,
passengers met each other in
Savannah, where they boarded the
historic train for a seven-day tour
of historic Southern cities, met
their porters and prepared for the
first night on board.

FEATURES EDITOR

Settling into my compart-
ment, but with the door open
so I could see who was staying
in adjacent compartments, I
was happy to learn that one of
the folks I had met at the Inn,
Californian Sharon Jones, was
in compartment G, right next
door.
By 5 p.m. passengers were

traveling together again, such
was the camaraderie aboard.
The age range of the travelers
was roughly 30-80 with more
in the 50-70 range. As I had
learned on the trans-Canada
trip two years earlier, many
were back for the second,
third or even fourth time.
During orientation, people
were encouraged to sit at the
larger tables and to mingle.
Most did, making new friends
in the process. A few did not,
for whatever reasons. I felt it
was their loss.
Dinner was just as chal-
lenging as I had remembered
from the trans-Canada trip.
All three entree selections
sounded delicious as did the
appetizer, soup and salad.
We all ordered the appetizer,
which turned out to be tiny
chunks of crayfish on puff
pastry. The salad was field
greens with walnuts and blue
cheese and a dressing that
hinted at mango or some
such fruit. Our entree selec-
tion was a loin roast, duck
with cranberry or salmon. At
our table there were two
orders for salmon and two for
duck. For dessert we had to
choose from chocolate bour-
bon pecan pie, Key lime
cheesecake or seasonal fresh
fruit.
About the only easy deci-
sion for me that
first day was to
i. go to bed early
as we had to be
up at 7 a.m. or
so and finished
with breakfast
by 8:30 a.m. so

time, she stopped by to ask
what we wanted to drink in
the morning and what time
we would like to use the
shower compartment. This
first night we would rock to

than to the clickety clack of

did we know that the end was

that the American Orient

JUNE CASAGRANDE
A WORD, PLEASE




It's OK to


feel bad

I feel bad. And I'll tell you
why I feel bad.
I feel bad because, just
three sentences into this col-
umn, I know that certain
readers are already booting
up their laptops, hardly able
to wait for that little Windows
logo to finish waving so they
can read me the riot act
regarding my first three sen-'
tences. "Bad," these readers
are just itching to tell me, is
not an adverb. What I meant
to write, they'll say, is that I
feel "badly."
And here's the reason I feel
so bad: This is a setup.
Entrapment. A cruel taunting
of the language cops who are
so eager to catch people mak-
ing mistakes that they don't
even take time to do their
homework.
The correct phrasing, such
homework would tell them, is
not "I feel badly." It's "I feel
bad."
And if that's not bad
enough, here's another reason
I feel so bad: The best expla-
nation I've ever found for this
rule is in a book that I left in a
Mexican restaurant in Brook-
lyn. Mly '"Garner,'s Modern'
American 'Usage,"'a book I
rely on so much that my
boyfriend refers to author
Bryan Garner as "June's other
boyfriend," was forgotten last
week in a blur of schmoozing
Penguin Publishing people
and guacamole.
Back home in Southern
California, I went to two local
bookstores to buy a new
"Garner's." But, in accordance
with a bicoastal conspiracy to
make me feel bad, both were
sold out. So I bought a copy of
"Fowler's Modern English
Usage" instead. I've cited
"Fowler's" countless times
without ever owning a copy.
I'm cheap, so I always used
the library's copy. I feel kind of
bad about that, too.
"Fowler's" is helpful.
It tells us that "bad" is used
"as an adjective after the verb
'feel' 'I feel bad.' And
author R.W Burchfield goes
on to add that" 'bad' is unob-
jectionable even in quite for-
mal English."
But you don't have to take
Burchfield's word 'for it. The
"Chicago Manual of Style"
agrees, as does the "Asso-
ciated Press Stylebook."
"Bad," say the AP authors,
"does not lose its;status as an
adjective, however, in a sen-
tence such as.'I feel bad.' Such
a statement is the idiomatic
equivalent of 'I am in bad
health.' An alternative, 'I feel
badly,' could be interpreted as
meaning that your sense of
touch was bad."
Based on what I read in
Garner's, I would argue that
AP kind of misses the point. "I
feel bad" isn't idiomatic. It's
grammatically correct.
"Feel" in this sentence is
acting as something called a
popularr verb" or a "linking
verb." The most common
copular verb is "to be," and all
other copular verbs seem to
me to pertain to states of be-
ing. "Become," "get," "seem,"
"appear," even "wax" as in
"wax poetic" are all copular
verbs and all sort of refer back
to their subjects.
Think about the sentence,
"I am happy." The verb here,
"am," is a conjugated form of

WORD trrnm iast (


"to be" the mother of all
copular verbs.
Now, the people who argue
for "I feel badly" say that the
adverb is required because it
modifies the verb "feel." Thus,
according to their logic,
shouldn't "I am happy" be "I
am happily"? Ditto for "I seem
happily," "I become happily"
and "I appear happily"?
The point they're missing
is that these are all copular
verbs and copular verbs take
adjectives. This type of verb-
has more to do with the sub-
ject of the sentence than how
that subject went about per-
forming .the action in the


verb.
At least, that's how I recall
my other boyfriend explained
it before I left him to be found
by some faceless, margarita-
drinking Brooklynite who will
probably take him home but
then just put him on a shelf
never to be touched again.
Now I really feel bad.

environment and are aware
of the threats posed to wild-
life, they will be better stew-
ards of the land.
Except for what man has
introduced. One threat being
addressed is litter. What ex-
actly is litter, you might ask?
The book says it is a dis-
orderly accumulation of
objects; a carelessly discard-
ed pile. Litter is anything un-
natural that is left outdoors.
So what's the problem
with litter? It is not only ugly;
it can last for a very long
time. For example, alum-
inum cans do not disinte-
grate; glass and even cigar-
ette filters stay around "for-
ever." Some plastics take
hundreds of years to break
down. Even newspapers
found in landfills have not
decomposed after 25 years.
Living inr a littered en-
vironment can have a de-
pressing effect on people.
Not only are we poisoning
the planet, we are poisoning
ourselves. Litter injuries
wildlife. For example, ani-
mals can get trapped in bot-
tles, six pack holders, and
cans.
Sea turtles can be attract-
ed by floating plastic bags
because they.resemble jelly-
fish, eat them and choke. Or
a food scrap discarded along
a journey becomes a tasty
snack left along the road,
attracting animals to danger.


We all have seen pictures
of animals trapped in dis-
carded fishing line or with
hooks stuck in them. Animals
can die from lead poisoning
if they swallow small lead
fishing weights.
But there is good litter.
The uppermost layer of the
forest floor, consisting of fall-
en leaves and other decaying
organic matter, is called
litter. That is a more natural
description.
In fact, this type of litter is
very important to a fire-
dependent community be-
cause it helps fuel the fires
that "rekindle" the life of that
community. It's nature's way
of recycling.
How wildlife works best is
on its own. We don't need to
do anything for it, just let it
function normally when pos-
sible and don't do anything to
it that is unnatural.
While not everyone thinks
this way; it should be done.
Because folks like you can
take control, volunteer and
make things the way they
ought to be. Join'a volunteer
group like the Friends of
Oscar Scherer. Park Inc., or
one of the mn.' around the
county that is active and
protective of some aspect of
our environment.
There is an age old ex-
pression thatgoes, "One
man's trash is another man's
treasure." Spanish Point was


a garbage dump thousands
of years ago. Those mounds
of debris and now extensive-
ly studied to see how life
was back then. What will
our dumps tell about us into
the future?
Oscar Scherer State Park
will be celebrating its 50th
anniversary this year. Please
come out to the park and
see what Elsa Scherer
Burroughs left for you 50
years ago, and help us leave
it healthy for the generations
to come in the next 50 years.

Aw&


Pets are often more than a'best friend'


STAFF REPORT

Though pets play an
important and often, familial
role in the lives of :dults and
children alike, the role a pet
can have in a childs develop-
ment is especially important.
Children learn many of life's
lessons from caring for ani-
mals, learning how to both
take care of a pet and care for
it emotionall. Dr. Gail lel-
sor of the Center for the
Huinan-Animal Bond at the
Purdue University School of
Veterinary Medicine points
out that children learn empa-
thy and nurturing behaviors
as a result of having a pet. The
latter lesson is particularly
important for male children,
who typically do not partici-
pate in nurturing games such
as playing dolls or house, and
often view nurturing activi-
ties as signs of weakness.
When it comes to male chil-
dren and pets, however, that
nurturing bias disappears.
Dr. Alan Beck, who directs
the Human-Animal Bond
center at Purdue, notes that
pets provide other lessons for
children as well, whether it's
how to cultivate a friendship
or deal with the inevitability
of death.
"For children, animals
teach responsibility and com-
passion," Beck said in a 2005


online forum for WebMD.
"They can be a best friend, a
source of learning about life,
and are often the first expo-
sure to death, which is still
important for children to
understand."
Though pets can play such
an integral role in a child's
development, it's important
parents understand which
pets might be the most
appropriate for their children.

Prevention of Cruelty to


Animals, (ASPCA) note,

hat is The ASPCA also suggests
toddler parents keep a watchful eye
I child on the interaction between
ig and child and pet, particularly if
an be your child is younger. For
Id and young children. responsibility
ng its" can be instilled d\ih the sim--
Sand plest of tasks, be: it filling a
water bowl each day or sim-
N ply coming along for the daily
walk. As time goes by and
children get older, increasing
their responsibilities with
respect to the family pet will
only foster their sense of res-
ponsibility.
Children can also learn a
sense of social responsibility
from having a pet. As Dr. Beck
points out, animals encour-
age social contact between
people.
"We are a social species,
and we find great comfort in
each other's company," Beck
Says. "Our studies and others
have shown that people with
S animals are actually, viewed
by others as being nicer, bet-


ter people."
While that's a definite ben-
efit, animals could also
increase the likelihood of a
child succeeding in social


opportunities. According to
the ASPCA, parents of young
children should. encourage
"appropriate- behavior bet-:
ween. child and pet, such as
not playing too roughly and
not- disturbing the animal
while it's sleeping or eating
(both of which could be dan-
gerous to a child, as animals,
dogs in particular, may
respond to such disturbances
with aggressive behavior). By
encouraging your child to
behave appropriately with
your pet, you'll help your
child get a better understand-
ing of how best to behave
around other children and a.
stronger sense of what is
appropriate and what is not.
Beck also notes that pets
can often play a calming,
healing and even nurturing
role for their owners. For
instance, simply petting a dog
or cleaning a fish tank has
been shown to lower blood
pressure. While children are
not necessarily prone to high
blood pressure, everyone,


including toddlers and
,: younger children, has bad
days, niaking tjie ,palring
effects of a pet allthe more
beneficial. An animal's ability
to -recog'nize when a person is
,having a bad day is also an
interesting thing to note;.
"Many social species, inc-
luding humans, dolphins and
dogs, notice when a member
of the group needs more
attention,"Beck says. "And
dogs are particularly sensitive
to human behaviors and
often even anticipate it.
They are incredibly obser-
vant of the most minor, non-
verbal behaviors. It is com-
mon that a dog senses a
'pack' member who is be-
having differently and ori-
ents to that person .and tries
to bring comfort."
While many people love a
pet simply because of the
way they look, it's good to
know as well that your pet,
be it a dog, cat or even some
fish, is paying dividends you
might not even be aware of.

dents'video announcements.
Each morning, a tape the
group made was shown to all
students advertising the styl-
ish hat. The tape told the stu-
dents where and when they
could purchase a hat reflec-
tive of their student pride.
"Our goal was to raise
$2,000," said Brantley. "We
have raised about two-thirds
of it with the student body,
parents, the Venice Area
SChamber of Commerce and
PGT. We plan on doing more
to reach that goal," Brantley
continued as she asked Eng if
she was ready to set up a
Sbooth atPublix.
"It felt good to be learning
Show to run a business and do
something philanthropic at
the same time," Eng added.


Business has its price
Eng and Gehrls learned
that working together is often
fraught with confrontation.
"The hardest part was real-
izing that you can't please
everyone," Gehrls said and
Eng agreed.
"Next year, I plan on get-
ting rid of the commmnica-
tion problems early," Eng
added. She is going to be the
group's president next year.
A week before the check
presentation on May 18,
Brantley and the FBLA chal-
lenged all the homerooms to
see how much money each
one could raise for CE The
winning class would receive a
doughnut party, compli-
ments of PGT Industries. Julia
Hallstein's class was the win-
ner, raising $65 toward the
cause.


LESSON r-'iP: 1i.,


S1980; Voss was one of three
PGT volunteers along with
SCara Dohnalek and Debra
.tl Madison.
-' "L.A. had a template for us
- to follow, but the kids did all
Sthe work. We helped by
-: answering any questions and
offering suggestions when
Needed about organizing
; departments, setting up the
' financial side of sales and
. marketing ... all the things
That are typical to running a
business. They were young
individuals with good ideas,
and it was our intent to just
- stay out of the. way, to not
Sjump in and run the thingfor
Them. They needed to get the
Sfull experience for them-
*! selves, not be dictated to by
. PGT.
S"We saw the kids struggle
i dth the same things we have
Struggled with," Voss contin-
ued, "like getting the right
Steam together for the result
you want. But, they had the
dedication to overcome diffi-
culties and make hard deci-
sions; any success you have in
that regard adds to your con-
Sfidence. I think they learned
that when you struggle, you
P learn the'most."
' T Thie&struggles and deci-'
sions were summarized by a
Sfour-member panel in April. '
- The club finally decided to
design and market a hat but
not without disagreement.
; "It took four meetings just
; to decide on a hat!" Chris
SFreeman said emphatically,
Assessing the early climate of
Sthe FBLAs venture into the
Business world.
Four meetings to wrangle
Over suggestions of air fresh-
eners; T-shirts, pencils, brace-
lets...
"Communication was the
Number one difficulty," said
Elizabeth Eng, panel mem-
Sber, and her opinion was
immediately supported in
Sunison by the other three.
S "Getting to the point of
Knowing our beliefs, of what
Swe wanted, wasn't easy as we
thought it might be," she said.
One of a panel of four stu-
dent spokespersons, the
FBLA member and VHS se-
nior.provided the bottom line
reasoning for the club's deci-
sion to select Cystic Fibrosis
as the financial recipient of
the donation.
"It was the two girls," Dan-
ielle Sanchez said. "Watching
the video of them... what they
had to go through."
'And a death of friend of
mine from the same disease,"
added Kim Dinh, panel mein-
ber, her brilliant smile wan-
ing, suddenly somber.
FBLA research also found
that a much higher percent-
age of a CF donation went
directly to the intended area
of need. Other organizations
researched offered less direct
channeling of funds, sending
more to the administration
costs of the organization.
With corporation start up
costs from fundraisers and
the sale of stock to FBLA
members, atheV-Hatz corpo-
ration evolved from theory to
fact in March 2006. A limited
edition ball cap produced by
Gemini Apparel of Nokomis
and featuring a Venice High
School Indian logo designed
by club member Jake


Johnston went on sale for $15.
Even with productionthen
a reality, V-Hatz Corporation,
struggles deepened dramati-
cally toward the end of the
academic year when the
number of people remaining
true to the cause dwindled to
12.
The window of opportuni-
ty for successful completion
was closing.
They needed to get the
product in front of the con-
sumer.
They faced production
debt.
They faced project failure.
A reality, once so promis-
ing in the challenge of
autumn's beginning, had
become stilted, long in the
tooth; summer and gradua-
tion beckoned.
They needed an end run.
So did their promise to CF,
to two young girls, and to
themselves.
Failure was not an option.
In the true end game the
reality of the CF mission -
giving up is not an option.
Neither can it be neatly pack-
aged in one school project,
wrapped'in ribbon, and tied
with a neat bow. ";
' With im'petts provided by
PGT and advisor Brantley, the
members made an all out
final effort of salesmanship.
Hats for CF, hats for research
funds,. began selling rapidly.
Once in doubt, the produc-
tion was on its way to a suc-
cessful conclusion that ended
with the presentation of a
check in the amount of $1,500
made by FBLA to Cystic
Fibrosis, a donation accepted
on behalf of Cf by Natalie
Twigg and her two daughters,
May 18 atVenice High School.
The students have gradu-
ated. FBLA meeting minutes
are packed up in storage to be
used as reference material by
next year's students. V-Hatz
will have taught its lessons.
"...of how a business actu-
ally operates," Chris Freeman
said;
...of the importance of
team work," Kim Dinh said;
"... of the necessity of stay-
ing on top of things, not let-
ting them slide," Danielle
Sanchez said;
"... of realizing that listen-
ing is as important as making
suggestions," Elizabeth Eng
said.
The quotes belong to all
four who said that to make
the most of the FBLA club
experience, students should
arm themselves with deter-
mination and commitment.
"Stay with it," Brantley
said. "Don't give up."
They can learn much from
the much younger and ever-
hopeful ITigg girls, Alex-
andria and Aundrianna, two
girls who possess that deter-
mination and commitment
in abundance.
They also can learn from
the Twigg parents, Natalie
and Steve, who must con-
stantly call on a reserve of
faith and strength of will to
make the best of worlds for
their two children wrestling
with a life-threatening dis-
ease and its uncertain future.

EDITOR'S NOTE: See the
accompanying story by Courtney
Linn.


When the PGT attempted
to deliver their prize, Hall-
stein's class refused, stating
that the money spent for the
doughnuts should go to CF
also. PGT, touched by the
class' thoughtfulness, agreed
to donate $100, plus the cost
of the doughnut party to the
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The big day
May 18, the Venice High
FBLA presented a check to the
Twigg girls to donate in their
names to the Cystic Fibrosis
Foundation. The FBLA was
able to raise $1,500 for the girls.
The girls' mother, Natalie
Twigg, was on hand to assist
the girls in receiving the
check. "I am so proud of these
young people," she said. "It is
a wonderful thing when peo-
ple help people they haven't
even met."
The Twigg girls and their
mother plan on donating
every penny of the money to
the Cystic Fibrosis Foun-
dation in the girls' name.

ONE LAST WORD


"This benefit of seeing ... can come only if you pause a while,
extricate yourself from the maddening mob of quick impressions
ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet
image... the viewer must be willing to pause, to look again, to
meditate." Dorothea Lange, Photographer (1895-1965)

rocket launch was the culmination of research the class did on energy. Students
studied potential and kinetic energy prior td launching the rockets. Students
assembled and painted their own rockets.

How can I find a great location for my franchise?


Location is a critical factor
is the success of any
fanchise. But unless you
are committed to having a
great operation focused on
the needs of your customer,
you can have the greatest
location in the world and still
fail
To be successful, every
franchise needs a mixture of
these factors:
the right location
a great product or service
that consumers want to buy
superb customer service
a marketing message
supported by your brand
consistency in your
delivery
the right price
When you are looking for
that perfect location, you
need to first understand what
type of locations will work for
your franchise and which
ones won't. A top-notch
franchisor will be able to
provide you with the site
criteria required to run a
successful franchise. Well-
established franchisors have
experience in different
markets and in locations that
vary in size, shape, surround-
ings and customer draws. The
franchisor should be able to
provide you with not only the
site criteria, but should also
connect you with a local


broker who can assist you in
finding the right location.
When making your franchise
selection, talk to the existing
franchisees in the system and
see how helpful the franchisor
was in getting them the right
site for their businesses.
What makes a great site
varies from business to
business. What do you need
from a location? If your
business requires customers
to come to you, then visibility
and accessibility will be
important. But if you run a
service business and you go
to the customer's home, then
parking spaces for your cars
and trucks, warehouse space,
loading docks and access to
highways wil be more
important.
Overall cost is also an
important consideration. If
your business plan allows for
$15 per square foot space and


the available space is $30 per
square foot, you are going to
need an enormous increase in
customer traffic to justify the
increased price. Also, if you
need only 2,000 square feet
but find a 4,000 square foot
space at half the price; is
bigger necessarily better?
Maybe not. A 2,000-square-
foot restaurant that is full will
look busy and be attractive to
customers. At 4,000 square
feet it maylook empty and
less appealing.
You also need to under-
stand some of the basics of
how to evaluate real estate:
SPopulation density. How
many people or businesses
are in your trading area? Are
the people in the neighbor-
hood the right background,
age, size, and income for your
type of business?
Traffic generators. Are
there other nearby businesses


or draws that will help bring
you customers? Some com-
mon traffic generators are
malls, office complexes,
schools, hospitals, grocery
stores, drug stores and
department stores. These are
all high-traffic locations that
have repeat customer traffic.
If you own a women's hair
salon, being located near
women's clothing and shoe
stores may increase your
traffic. Feeding off of your
neighbors'customers is the
cheapest type of advertising
there is.
Traffic count and accessi-
bility. How much traffic, both
by car and on foot, pass by
your location?
It's not enough to simply
count cars or people. Are the
cars going too fast to notice
you? If they see you, can they
get to you easily? Are you on
the right side of the road? If
not, a lot of traffic will not be
very helpful. If you have high
foot traffic during the day
but you need evening traffic,
having a lot of people
walking buy at noon will not
benefit you.
SCompetition. Where is
your nearest competitor? How
strong is its reputation, and
what is it going to take for you
to compete with them?
There are many businesses


that thrive in areas in which
their competitors are literally
next door. Furniture stores'
and quick-service restaurants
are frequently in the same
general area as their direct
competitors. However, if you
are a drug store and there is a
CVS or aWalgreens next door
or across the street,.the
market may be too saturated
for you to succeed.
Security. Is the area and
the location safe for your
,customers and your staff? Are
neighboring businesses and
properties well-maintained?
If your business is in an
area that is run down or is
known for its high crime,
customers may not to come
to you, even if you are
conveniently located. Make
certain that your customers
will feel safe and secure.
Employees. Can employ-
ees get to you? Are there
people in the area willing to
work for you?
If your employees will need
public transportation to get to
work, are you on a bus route?
If you plan to hire employees
locally, make sure rhat the
pool of candidates is large
enough or your pay scale may
go through the roof. If you are
lookingfor entry-level,
minimum-wage employees
and every kid in the neighbor-


hood is driving a BMW, will
you find enough affordable
staff?
Visibility, signage and
zoning. Will customers be
able to see your business
and your sign? These are
only some of the criteria to
consider. Your franchisor
should be able to provide
you with information on the
type of location you should
be looking for.
Finding a great location
can seem daunting simply
because many of the great
sites have already been
taken. But if you understand
what you need and work
with experienced commer-
cial real estate brokers and
your franchisor's real estate
staff, you will limit your risk
and hopefully quickly select
a location that meets your
needs.
Keep in mind that in most
cases, when a franchisor
"approves" your location,
they are only verifying that
it meets their minimum
criteria. They are not
guaranteeing that you will
be successful in that loca-
tion or telling you that there
are not better locations in
the same area. Those
decisions are yours alone to
make. Do your homework
carefully.


Office Coach: Overdue reports are the co-worker's problem


n: What.do you do when
someone never com-
plees anything on time? I'm
an administrative assistant,
and one person who reports
to my boss is always late with
paperwork. His expense
accounts are now three
months overdue. Our manag-
er is very unhappy about this,.
but I'don't think she has said
anything to him. Because I'm
extremely organized, I would
gladly assist him if he would
only ask. I constantly remind .
him about deadlines, but he
usually ignores me. I'm about
ready to stop helping and let
him hang himself, but that is
not my true nature. What
should I do?

tuality is riot interfering with
your own work. You just feel
that he should be more
responsible. So let me suggest
that this is his problem, not
yours. And if he gets in
trouble, it will be due to his
own incompetence, not your
failure to fix him.
You are obviously a very
conscientious person, but I'm
sure you've noticed that
many others are not. (This


often comes as a sad surprise:
to conscientious-people.) '.:
Unles- these chaotic souls are
causing you harm, you might
as wcFI learn to tolerate them.
You say that you are about
ready to stop helping him.
'Well, OK.
That's fine. He is not your
responsibility. You would
happily get more involved "if
he would mnly ask," but
apparent, ie hasn't. So why
stress y 1, -If ouc over this?
After all, .- o re not paid to be
his mom.
Your boss, however/is paid
to be his manager. If she is
concerned about overdue
work, then she needs to tell
him and hold him account-
able.
Any change in this guy's
behavior is unlikely unless


she demands better perfor-
mance: But that's not really
your problem either, is it?
Q: My boss has been very
unfair. For two years in a row,
he promised me a promotion
to the next level, then didn't
give it to me. Last year, I was
out of work for a few months
with a severe back injury. This
year, although I had some
notable accomplishments, I
was out for another three
months because of a car
accident. My boss says he can't
promote me because of the
time I missed. Should I be
penalized for an injury that was
beyond my control even
though my performance is very
good -Unrewarded
A: A perfect example of
"where oju stand depends on
where you sit."


From your point of view,
your job performance is -
worthy of recognition, even
though you missed a few
months of work. From your
company's point of view,
however, you have worked
only about 75 percent of the
time, regardless of the reason.
Which is the "fair" way to
look at it? Well, that depends
... you, your co-workers, your
manager and your human
resources department may
have different views on that.
However, I can tell you that
delaying a promotion is not
unusual when the employee
has been out on disability.
Here's where your boss
screwed up, though: he failed
to explain the specific criftria
that you had to meet. As it
result, you have expected this


promotion twice, only to be
. disappointed when it did not
come through. Understand- *
ably, you feel a bit jerked
around.
To get back on track, talk
with your boss and H.R.
department about promo-
tional requirements, in terms
of both performance and
attendance.
Ask how soon your eligibili-
ty can be considered again.
Some companies simply
delay promotions for a few
months if employees are out
due to illness.
Then, when the date for
reconsideration rolls around,
remind your boss that it's
time to talk about your move
to the next level. Assuming
you've met all the criteria, of
course.
