Fred Hammett's honey-
moon as Venice's new mayor
lasted a little more than a day.
Hammett was named
mayor Tues-
day after-
noon, and by
Thursday
morning he
was on the
phone lobby-
ing the federal
government
for $2 million
to help build a Hammett
city-owned
marina and public park on
airport property.
Venice is attempting to win
the money, which is part of
the Economic Development
Initiative, and federal law-
makers are in the midst of
debating requests from all
over the country.

Mr. Binx disappeared.
His family suspects foul
play, especially after the
leather-faced transient
knocked on their door.
The Wrights woke up one
morning to knocks on their
glass door. They hoped it was
Mr. Binx, their cat, finding his
way home.
Instead, they saw a face no
one wants to see at their front
door.
It's a face similar to the one
Stephanie Feola encountered
about three years ago on
Toledo Blade Boulevard.
"Once you see one, you
don't care to see one again,"
Feola said.
It's a face similar to the sus-
pects officials believe recently
killed three Floridians.
It's the face of an alligator,
the animal responsible for
eight deaths in Charlotte, Lee
and Sarasota counties since
1948.
Gators killed 17 people in
Florida from 1948 to 2005 and
three more this month, ac-
cording to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, or FWC.
Annemarie Campbell, 23,
of Paris, Tenn., was found two
weeks ago. She was attacked
while snorkeling in a seclud-
ed recreation area near Lake
George, said state wildlife
spokeswoman Kat Kelley. The
lake is about 50 miles south-
east of Gainesville.
Judy W. Cooper, 43, of
Dunedin, Fla., was found
dead in a Pinellas County
canal two weeks ago. Her
body had been in the water
for about three days. She suf-
fered animal bites that were
consistent with those of an
alligator.

The opening of the Java

Always dangerous, alligators have turned deadly this year,
claiming three victims in May. Despite warnings, some people
still think it's OK to feed them.


was found dead May 10 in a
canal near Fort Lauderdale.
Officials believe she was at-
tacked near a canal bank and
dragged into the water while
she was jogging.
Authorities said they have
trapped and killed the alliga-
tors responsible for the
'attacks.
Alligators have bitten more
than 400 people statewide
since 1948.
What provoked the attacks
in three separate Florida
counties was unknown, but
state wildlife officials said alli-
gators are generally on the
move looking for mates and
food this time of year.
'As the weather heats up,
the alligators' metabolism
increases and they have to eat
more," commission spokes-
man Willie Puz said recently.
"They might be moving more,
but that just shouldn't mean
increased alligator attacks."
Breeding season is under
way, which means alligators
are moving around more. The
season typically runs from
mid-April through May.


Most attacks occur be-
tween dusk and dawn, the
time period when Feola last
encountered an alligator.
Feola was driving her then-
4-month-old Mitsubishi
Eclipse on Toledo Blade
Boulevard late one night
about three years ago when
she hit something. She
thought it was an armadillo,
until she opened the door
and saw a tail no armadillo
could drag behind.
The 8-foot alligator began
attacking her new car.
"The thing shook my car,"
Feola said at the time. "I
thought it was going to flip
my car. I got scared."
The gator's teeth grabbed
onto the bumper, leaving
numerous holes in the plastic
bumper.
"It's a good thing I didn't
get out of the car," the Port
Charlotte woman said. "It
probably would have been
me and the car."
Feola kept the bumper, a
reminder of the night she hit

JACK DUDLEY and BONNIE HEATH owned Needles, the
first Florida-bred race horse to win the coveted Kentucky
Derby. Dudley and Heath, owners of Ocala's D Stable,
bought Needles in 1955 on the recommendation of train-
er Hugh Fontaine. It is believed that Needles earned his
name from the many medical treatments he received as a
weakly foal from the day he was born at Dickey Stables in
Ocala. In 1956, Needles won the Kentucky Derby at
Churchill Downs and the Belmont Stakes in New York, but
lost his bid for the Triple Crown by losing to Fabius in the

Sarasota fertilizer regulations being developed


The light bulb of inspira-
tion clicked on in Tropical
Bob's head this week.
T.B. was observing the
many collapsed buildings that
remain in our area two hurri-
cane seasons after Charley.
Perhaps owners can't pay
demolition costs. And govern-
ment seems reluctant to con-
demn these eyesores. Who will
do the deed?
T.B. has a solution.
Act secretive, but tell every-
one you know that some-
where in this area, under a
building now collapsed, lies
the body of Jimmy Hoffa.
When word reaches
Washington, D.C., quickfeder-
al removal of our buildings
will follow. Problem solved.

$1 billion shortfall looming for transportation


The problem is described in a long-range plan-
ning report released last autumn. It describes all
the area transportation projects that are needed
by the year 2030.


BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


One of the financial puz-
zles Sarasota County will have
to solve over the next 25 years
is finding about $1 billion for
road improvements and pub-
lic transit projects that are
essential to accommodating
new growth. No funding
sources are identified in long-
term plans.
The project list is con-
tained in a "2030 Long Range
Transportation Plan" report
adopted last fall by the
Sarasota/Manatee
Metropolitan Planning
Organization. And while the
reported deficit is only $809
niillion in 2005 cost esti-
mates, it is expected to
increase each year.
"Construction and right-
of-way costs change every
day," said Mike Maholtz, a
long-range planner for the
two-county organization.
"In 2006, the deficit will be
a lot bigger because of
increased gasoline prices
alone. We talk about this all of
the time."
The report contains many
Sarasota County road and
transit projects that are
scheduled to receive some
combination of federal and


state support, but the big
worry for transportation offi-
cials is almost two dozen oth-
ers that are conspicuously not
funded.
They stretch all the way
from University Parkway at
the north county line to
Toledo Blade Boulevard in the
south, and include many
familiar names such as
Proctor Road, Sarasota
Parkway, State Road 72,
Manasota Beach Road,
Knights Trail Road and
Jacaranda Boulevard.
What the report also points
out is that three of the most
prominent area roads U.S.
41, U.S. 301 and State Road 70
- are not part of a new
Florida investment policy for
the region's future transporta-
tion needs known as the
"Strategic Intermodal Sys-
tem."
"Conversations about
these projects occur at the
organization's board meet-
ings," Maholtz said. "All those
currently without funding
should become eligible for
federal and state funding at
some point. The county will
have to work through the
organization to try to get it."
Future growth data projec-
tions in the report suggest
that politicians and plan-

lems may cause future projects to be delayed.

Sarasota had better strap
themselves in for a rough ride
if new residents pour in at the
pace anticipated, and bump
the two-county population
total up to a million by 2030.
"The majority of this project-
ed growth about 88 per-
cent of the total is expected
to occur within or east of the
Interstate-75 corridor," the
report states. "By 2030. the
Sarasota/Mlanatee area will
have 500,000 jobs, an increase


01 UUULL /,U WUU U.U .lVU, jI.
area's employment in 2000."
It goes on to forecast that
"North Port will become the
area's largest city by 2030"
even though it doesn't have
what planners describe as a
traditional city center, while
"Palmetto will have the high-
est percentage growth of any
Manatee County municipali-


ty.
Other taan the fact that
new growth, right of way for
roads and road construction
cost Southwest Florida com-
munities more money with
every passing day, the rep-
ort also concluded an
increas-ing number of com-
muters are crossing county
lines to get from home to


A shortage of affordable
housing forces many of these
area residents to commute
long distances, which puts
added pressure on regional
officials to plan for even more
new roads and public tran-
sit improvements that could
make riding on buses an
acceptable alternative.

Snook Haven property



getting upgrades


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


Nestled along the banks of
the Myakka River is a gem of a
property that has seen better
days.
In fact, the property is
being cleared of years of
accumulated stuff in hopes to
bring it up to the standards
of Sarasota County.
The Snook Haven resort
and restaurant has been the
focus of recent criticism with
a sudden need to hire a con-
tractor to run the facility and
improve the overall look of
the property, which has vari-
ous pieces of. trash sitting
around.
Sarasota County bought
the Old Florida icon on March
14 for $2.95 million. It sits on
2.2 acres on the Myakka Riv-
er, east of River Road, near the
eastern end of Venice Ave-
nue. It was built in 1948.
The facility was owned by
Sandy Alston for the past 18
years.
Operations include the
restaurant, cabins and boat
launch.
The operations were
turned over to Sunrise Sun-
set Concessions of Siesta Key
Inc. for a six-month conces-
sion contract, which was
agreed to with little notice.
When the county bought
the property, about $50,000
was set aside for any up-
keep that might be needed,
coun-ty Parks and Recreat-
ion Manager John McCarthy
said at the time of the pur-
chase.
The county worked hard to
keep the facility running as it
was.


Discussions
Originally, Alston was
expected to stay on until a
formal concession contract
could be developed. But
shortly before the county was
about to close on the sale, she
said she could not stay on.
The county has hired a
contractor to remove most of
the items on the property,
including an abandoned
school bus.
McCarthy sent the county
commissioners an e-mail
recently, saying "this work will
ramp up next week and then
we have a staff crew that will
come in and take care of
some of the smaller items."
County staff also recently
met with Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
staff who are responsible for
the Myakka River as a Wild
and Scenic River to discuss
cleanup of old rubble along
the shoreline.
This will help the county
come in compliance with
waterway rules.
Discussions with FDEP are
also taking place about
repairing the boat docks.
Bud Wagner, owner of the
fishing camp 30 years ago,
has contacted McCarthy and
Commissioner Shannon



Consulting and design
kitchen & bath cabinets
painting & wall paper
caulking, tile & grout.
doors & windows
plumbing repairs
and so much more


Staub to discuss his concerns
about the future of the prop-
erty, saying they made a mis-
take buying it.
McCarthy, Staub and oth-
ers at the county each said
they knew the condition of
the property when they
bought it and that no issue is
insurmountable.
McCarthy is planning to
meet Wagner to explain what
the county is doing. He hopes
Wagner will be more comfort-
able with the current situa-
tion.
The county's goal from the
outset has been to keep the.
operations of Snook Haven as
they have been for years, with
kayak and boat access to the
river.
The bidding process for a
permanent concessionaire is
now open.

Teachers win grants from VHS Foundation


STAFF REPORT

The Venice High School
Foundation met on May 11 to
award mini-grants totaling
$6,252 to 13VHS teachers, an-
nounced Andrew J. Britton,
foundation president.
Jonathan Case received a
grant to be used toward hotel
and registration costs in con-
nection with the 2007 Florida
Music Educators Association
Clinic and Conference to be
held in Tampa. The three-day
clinic will provide several
seminars and chances to in-
teract with other music edu-
cators in Florida.
Charalise Harris and Bren-
da Randazzese received
grants to purchase a digital


projector to be used in con-
nection with a Medical Acad-
emy program at Venice High
School beginning August
2006. Many of the lessons,
activities, simulations and
programs offered require the
use of computer presenta-
tions that need a projector for
student viewing.
Seth Jones was awarded a
grant to continue the "Stu-
dent of the Month" recogni-
tion program, which has
proven to have a significant
impact on students' achieve-
ments, behavior and atten-
dance.
Carol Losey received a
grant for the purchase of a
digital camcorder to be used
to film medical simulations in


connection with the Medical
Academy program. These
films will provide documen-
tation that students are com-
petent in skills prior to actual
clinical experiences.
Anne Pinney was awarded
a grant for funds that will be
used to augment the inde-
pendent reading collection of
approximately 70 students.
Students will benefit from a
wide variety of literature and
informational texts that will
improve their comprehen-
sion. I
Donna Hill received a
grant to purchase paperback
books of high interest to low-
achieving students to pro-
mote reading success. These
paperbacks will help build


fluency and expand vocabu-
lary through independent
reading practice as these
books are more pleasurable
reading due to high interest
subjects.
Steve Johns was awarded a
grant to be used to raise funds
by a boosters group toward a
performance at Carnegie Hall
and tour in New York City.
Each participant must raise
$1,200 in order to join the
Venice High School chorus
trip in the spring of 2007.
Johns also received a grant
to be used for team building
and creating an identity and
community within the Arts
and Communications Acad-
emy. Physical identification
of academy classrooms,


teachers and would be ac-
complished through the use
of a logo, T-shirts and such.
Jose Velez was awarded a
grant to purchase CDs and
videos for the Venice High
School Spanish department
to use as tools to address top-
ics such as countries, litera-
ture, grammar and the like.
Pat VanKirk received a
grant for a field trip for 40 stu-
dents to the Museum of Sci-
ence and Industry and Imax
Theater in Tampa, which
would provide hands-on ex-
periences in science and
social studies.
Michael James received a
grant to purchase games for
literacy and Dr. Seuss materi-
als as well as books for dona-


tions to Garden and Venice
elementary schools. This pro-
ject will benefit about 200-
300 students and will encour-
age both strong and strug-
gling readers to read Dr. Seuss
books to elementary stu-
dents. Research has shown
that this method is very effec-
tive in developing high school
readers.
Anne McCloskey was
awarded a grant to fund labs
so that students gain experi-
ence in advanced culinary
skills.
The 26 students involved
will need to identify and
exhibit elements of a success-
ful organized food service
operation in relation to time,
energy, money and space.

an alligator suffering from a
severe case of road rage.
"I basically don't drive at
night anymore," she said. "I
don't go near canals and stuff
like that."
She also is tired of the nick-
name some in the communi-
ty gave her since the February
2003 attack: alligator lady.
"Stay away from them,"
Feola advised.
FWC officials receive more
than 15,000 complaints about
alligators in natural habitats,
but also in people's swim-
ming pools and garages.
Officials remove more than


5,000 nuisance alligators
every year.
An alligator is considered a
nuisance when it is longer
than 4 feet and posing a
threat to people, pets or prop-
erty. Smaller gators typically
cannot eat anything larger
than a small turtle, according
to the FWC.
The Wrights' recent early-
morning visitor was certainly
a nuisance in one way.
"It was a shocker," Bob
Wright said.
The Wrights never expect-
ed to see a 5-foot gator knock-
ing on their front door,

ipate that. The Wrights, espe-

tempting to kill runway re-
construction money and shut
the airport down.
"In the long term, it's a
money-saving idea from a
tax-support point of view,"
Hammett said. "It's an invest-
ment to make us better finan-
cially, so I would not consider
it pork barrel. ... We think it's
good for the city, good for the
people and good for the
Venetian Waterway Park."
Wait for Tuesday
The House, Transporta-
tion, Treasury and Housing
Appropriations Subcommit-
tee planned to "mark up their
version Friday," according to
the city's Washington-based
lobbyist, and told city officials
to "press for funding" on the
project.
Venice will most likely find
out Tuesday or Wednesday if
their request is still alive.
If the request is killed, the
city will not push to have it
reinstated, according to the
city manager. Venice will
either ask for the money
again next year or attempt to
raise the $2 million by selling
off the tons of dirt that must
be excavated at the site to cre-
ate a marina.
"It's a valuable project if
finding is available,?' Black


"We would be spend-
ing a lot of resources
swimming against the
tide of Congress (if
marina funding is
removed Tuesday). We
don't do that. We'd
just try again next
year."
City Manager
Marty Black



said. "We would be spending
a lot of resources swimming
against the tide of Congress (if
it's removed Tuesday). We
don't do that. We'd just try
again next year."
The ongoing war in Iraq
and a tight federal budget are
the reasons Black provides,
but one cannot ignore the
VNC and Lang's efforts to halt
runway reconstruction and
any other improvements at
the airport.
The city manager said
Lang's only goal is to "shut the
airport down" or move it off
the island. Lang moved to
Venice several years ago and
has continually protested the
airport, which is near. the


cially, wouldn't have predict-
ed it because they live on a
sea wall.
"You think you're safe
because he's 4 to 5 feet down
the wall," Wright said. "It's not
like they can climb up rip-
rap."
The Wrights called the
Charlotte County Sheriff's
Office. The gator stayed on
the Wrights' front porch for
about 20-30 minutes before
moving into some shrubs and
onto an empty lot.
"Then, he took a right,
heading down toward the
canal and jumped in the
canal," Wright said.
The gator disappeared


Golden Beach subdivision
she lives in.
Selling the airport
A month ago, Lang wrote a
letter to the TV news show "60
Minutes" in an attempt to
halt the marina project, and
just recently, sent a letter to
U.S. Sen. Bill-Nelson, D-
Florida, in an attempt to halt
federal funding of runway
reconstruction.
In her letter to Nelson,
Lang writes:
"The airport property in
Venice is also currently worth
over $300 million due to its
location on the Gulf of Mexico
and Venice is in the midst of its
Airport Master plan update.
The airport in its present loca-
tion has failed to attract anysig-
nificant business/employers
most likely because it's located
on an island. ... An estimate
was done several years ago on
moving the airport and showed
the cost to be about $68 mil-
lion. ... The FAA should be con-
sidering that instead of giving
out funds right now for this air-
port, it should review the bene-
fit of moving this airport, re-,
deeming its equity in exchange
for, releasing its restrictions,
and using a portion of the pro-
ceeds to move the airport and
establish a fund for future
maintenance that \\ill obliate
the need for on-going public


after that early Wednesday
morning surprise. Mr. Binx is
still missing, however.
"I think he was coming
back for more cats," Wright
said of the gator.
Wright has walked all over
his neighborhood, looking for
Mr. Binx, who liked to visit
neighbors and sleep with the
Wrights at night.
"I haven't found a trace of
him anywhere," Wright said.
"Poor Mr. Binx."

tributed to this story.

funding of this airport."
The Federal Aviation Ad-
ministration is responding to
Lang's letter and will tell
Nelson that relocation is not a
viable option, according to an
e-mail. sent from the FAA's
office to the city manager.
The city has been attempt-
ing to repave the airport run-
ways for nearly a decade and
may finally win funding for
13-31 this year and apply for
runway 4-22 next year. Fed-
eral funding for 13-31 was
yanked more than six years
because of lease disputes and
the design plans collected
dust until Airport Manager
FredWatts revived the project
a year ago when he was hired.
Lang's idea of selling the air-
port land for $300 million to a
developer comes as a surprise
to the city manager. That
seems to go against the anti-
growth goals oftheVNC, Black
said, especially with the
amount of intensive develop-
ment needed to justify a $300
million land purchase a dol-
lar amount that Black doesn't
think is based upon reality.
"There is no entity that's
going to pay $300 million to
turn (the airport) into a park.
... Selling it is one of the worst
ideas. It's a little surprising to
have a neighborhood group
have that on their agenda,"
Black said.

trees and the start of digging a
large pond, scheduled to
begin this week, will bring
construction equipment onto
the property. The next 30 days
will be devoted to readying
the site for construction.
Demand for residences
has been helped by the high
cost of gasoline, people
downsizing their homes and
newcomers to the area,
according to Ray Rodriguez of
Bay Street Village Realty.
"Our timing has been for-
tunate," he said. "We're pro-
moting the fact that residents
can walk from home to the
stores, restaurants and the
library. There's no need to
.have two cars or two gas
tanks."
He said that a recent in-
crease in rents at St. Armands


Circle in Sarasota "has put the
squeeze on merchants there.
A lot of them have inquired
about Bay Street. We're opti-
mistic."
Oakmont Capital, the leas-
ing agent for the Southbay
Fashion Center at Blackburn
Point Road, about 1 mile
south on U.S. 41, several
months ago credited the
anticipated opening of the
Wal-Mart store with the
opening of three stores and
an "upscale" restaurant on its
property.
"Osprey residents have
been hopeful for a long time
that the community could
become a destination, not
just a place cars drive,
through," said Judith John-
son, chairwoman of the revi-
talization committee. "It's
finally happening, just as real
estate experts predicted."

Tax relief not popular in Sarasota County


Sarasota County has maintained a consistent
policy of just saying no to tax exemptions.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Florida voters believe
homeowners owners should-
n't have to pay higher local
property taxes for additions
that keep their elderly parents
out of expensive nursing
homes and assisted living
facilities, yet only 11 of 67
counties have opted to grant
them relief.
In late April, the Sarasota
County Commission had a
chance to become the 12th.
But it remained steadfast to a
policy of refusing property tax
exemptions for a variety of
circumstances allowed by
state law, in this case "granny
flats" for the elderly.
"A North Port commission-
er referred this gentleman to
me who wanted to build a
granny flat," Sarasota County
Commissioner Shannon
Staub said. "I called him back
and explained the county
commission usually doesn't
give tax exemptions or
rebates for things like that."
The only optional proper-
ty-tax relief county commis-
sioners have adopted is an


additional $5,000 homestead
exemption for seniors with
limited incomes. State law
allows a break of up to
$25,000 for seniors in jurisdic-
tions that approve it.
Noflood
In 2002, voters approved
the "granny flats" tax break in
a statewide referendum. Rec-
ords show that 11 counties -
Bay, Brevard, Clay, Dade,
Duval, Hillsborough, Leon,
Madison, Palm Beach, Sem-
inole and Volusia have
adopted local measures to
grant the exemption.
While the law has only
been in existence for four
years, there is little evidence
to date that property owners
in the 11 cooperating coun-
ties are sending in a flood of
applications for granny-flats
building permits and tax
relief on the home improve-
ments.
The only county that has
experienced a wave of new
granny flats is Volusia, with
73. Tied at a distant second
are Dade and Hillsborough,
with 21 each, while Seminole
has 16, Palm Beach 13; all the

After she raised the issue at
an April 26 county commis-
sion meeting, Staub ex-
plained, "We've had a struggle
just getting
our board to
look at the
concept of
granny flats in
existing ,Ofe g^
neighbor-
hoods. Some
commission-
ers believe
property Patterson
owners will
use it as an excuse to get away
with having another rental
unit."
On May 9, Staub brought
up the granny-flats issue
again at a commission meet-
ing.
"I'm not in favor of it," she
said, "but I just wanted to see
if this board was willing to
Stake a look at it.,It is not a tax-
payers' subsidy that'has to be
picked up by others."
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said the difficulty for
county code enforcement
officials would come when a
home addition for elderly
family members is no longer
used for that purpose.
"It's really tough to know at


what point it stops being a
granny flat," she said.
Temptation
Property-tax exemption
measures are politically
tempting.

Mercier seas for at

County considered it, but said
no.
On Jan, 24, the county
commission voted 3-2 not to
explore property tax breaks of
up to $1,500 for military fam-
ilies. The issue was raised by
Commissioner Paul Mercier,
a Vietnam War veteran, and
supported by Commissioner
David Mills.
"This would be strictly for
heads of families who are
serving in places like Afghan-
istan and Iraq," Mercier said.
"I've checked through our
Veterans Affairs office and
with Congresswoman Kath-
erine Harris. We're only talk-
ing about 50 families."

He couldn't muster a third
vote.
Further evidence that
Sarasota County does not easi-
ly embrace tax breaks for spe-
cial groups is the sporadic
debate that dragged on for
almost four years over an addi-
tional $25,000 senior home-
stead exemption for owners
with modest incomes who
want to keep their homes.
Florida law provides a
$25,000 homestead exemp-
tion for property owners who
live at home. In addition, it


gives counties and cities an
option to approve up to
another an $25,000 tax break
for seniors. The town of
Longboat Key and city of
Sarasota do.
,In 2002, the county com-
mission reluctantly approved
a $5,000 additional property
tax break for seniors who
have homestead exemptions
and report modest earned in-
come to the Internal Revenue
Service. It has passed up sev-
eral opportunities to increase
the figure.

Casey Key wants relief from mega-house trend


Residents ask the
county to stop allowing
houses that tower
above treetops and
neighbors.


Staub suggested that because
changes in the county's zon-
ing regulations could take a
year or more to adopt, a tem-
porary moratorium on the
issuance of new building per-
mits should be considered to
head off more over-sized con-


struction.
"It's a radical suggestion,"
she admitted, "but these
issues need to be addressed,
and we can't do it in six
months. If we really want to
do something, a moratorium
could keep more of these


houses from sprouting up. It
would only have to be for a
short time."
County Administrator Jim
Ley said a consultant would
have to be employed because'
building planning and zoning
officials are currently over-


whelmed with work.
"It would take a couple of
months to retain one," he
said, "and a couple of more
before they begin work"
There was a brief discus-
sion about who should pay
the consultant.


"We have money budgeted
for this type of work," Ley
said, "because it was antici-
pated we might need it."
The commission unani-
mously agreed to begin an
involved process that could
take more than a year.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Longtime Casey- Key resi-
dents who have watched their
upscale barrier island par-
adise get swallowed up by
new mega-houses that tower
above treetops and crowd up
against property lines want
Sarasota County to stop the
development trend.
On Tuesday, the county
commission grappled with a
request for help from the
Casey Key Association and
directed administration offi-
cials to report back with a
plan that could include a new
overlay district and more
restrictive building codes.
"Many residents believe
these mega-
structures
have changed
the character
of Casey Key,"
.Commis-
sioner ion
Thaxton said.
"Thev've ask-
ed that we
Thaxton change ordi-
nances to bet-
ter capture the spirit of a tno-
story rule. New homes out
there are now approaching 60
feet in height."
Casey Key is almost exclu-
sively zoned for single-fat8nil
homes. A handful of old
motels and duplexes that pre-
date regulations are "grandfa-
thered" in ordinances, and a
conservation district estab-
lished by the state prohibits
anything new other than
homes with guest cottages.
In 2004, the county ap-
proved new daylight plane
"riles for residential construc-
don that require a 45-degree
daylight plane roof line on
homes beginning 25 feet
above "prede\velopment"
grade, and adopted a special
set of them for Casey Key.
Flexibility abused
Several factors can deter-
mine where the predevelop-
ment grade begins on con-
strucion drawings. On barri-
er islands, the grade is usually
determined either by man-
dated Federal Emergency
Management Agency flood
elevations or state-mandated
elevations.
Because Casev Key is di-
recdy in the path of high tides
and floodwater pushed by
hurricane winds, federal
guidelines require that new
homes be built almost 20 feet
in the air. The result is that
two-story homes with high
ceilings tower above older
ones built at ground level.
"The residents have asked
us to look at how lot sizes and
ratios are calculated because
undenvater land is being fac-
tored into the size of new
houses,
S Thaxton said.
"Fle~dbiliy in
our rules is
being abused
by creative
Architects.
People are
turning storm
surge areas
Staub into living
spaces."

You can take the high school out of Venice, but...


ant to get a whole city buzzing about
something? Print a story about mov-
ing its only high school to a new loca-
tion after 50 years.
News about a meeting at which that pos-
sibility was discussed has had tongues wag-
ging all over town. And we think that's great.
A potential action of this magnitude is one
that deserves a thorough airing in public, in
settings both formal and informal.
This is going to be a tough decision, and
whatever the outcome, a lot of people will be
unhappy with it, even while acknowledging
the logic of the other side. That's why the dis-
trict and Gulf Coast Community Foun-
dation of Venice is to be commended for
starting the process with a communitywide
discussion. We hope everyone will partici-
pate with an open mind.'
Let's get one issue out of the way:.VHS needs
to be replaced, whether in its current location
or elsewhere. The oldest buildings are decrepit
and vermin-infested, while the newer ones,
though all right structurally, are not set up to
educate students in the 21st century.
There are portable classrooms all over the


campus, and only the baseball and softball
facilities are up to the standards of a top-
flight high school.
The existence of those facilities, ironically,
is one of the reasons to leave the school
where it is. They were paid for by booster
money, not school board funds, and it's
uncertain whether the school district would
pay to replicate them on another site.
In fact, sports in general is one of the
biggest things the island would lose if the
school were relocated. VHS has a tradition of
sports (and academic) excellence, and con-
verging on the campus to cheer on the
Indians is one of the highlights of the school
year for parents and other residents alike.
The city is more than the island, but
there's something about the island that just
feels more Venice-y than the rest of the city.
And having the high school on the island is
one of the small-town charms that make
people fall in love with this place.
Then there are the practical reasons to
rebuild. The VHS campus is about 70 acres; a
new school might need 100. There just aren't
many parcels that size in the area, let alone


within city limits, and pulling that much land
together would be extremely expensive.
Rebuild and you automatically save millions.
Further saving comes from having to re-
place only those facilities that can't be reha-
bilitated or expanded, which can be done at
lower cost. That could knock millions more
off the bill.
But is that what would be best for the stu-
dents and the city? Would a partly new, part-
ly refurbished school be good enough to pro-
vide the education we think our children
deserve?
And just how important is it for Venice
High School to be on the island when only
about 100 of its 2,200 students live there?
Wouldn't we feel the same attachment to the
only high school in the area if it weren't even
in the city limits?
One thing is certain -7 we wouldn't miss
the traffic. The bridges provide occasional
frustration, but if you want real gridlock on a
regular b4sis, try driving past VHS around 2
p.m. any-school day. Might a location off the
island save gas, too?
So, what's the best thing to do? It's too


early to tell, but you can bet money will be
the key. A state-of-the-art school could cost
$100 million, and the district doesn't have
that kind of money lying around (the extra
mill in property taxes we're all paying goes to
operations, not capital improvements).
In a letter in Friday's paper, developer
Mike Miller questioned whether the high
school property, valuable as it is, could gen-
erate enough revenue.to make relocating the
school financially feasible. He doubts it, and
we have no reason to doubt him, since he
was one of the people making inquiries
about doing that, according to a source in the
Landings who asked not to be identified.
Or it might come down to something
more practical. If a deal were struck for a new
school elsewhere, it's hard to say which
would be the more controversial part: mov-
ing the school or developing the property.
Either way, the developer who put himself in
the middle of it would be in for a firestorm of
criticism that would make the Henry Ranch
dispute look like a Red Hat luncheon.
So don't be surprised ifVHS stays where it

LETTERS FROM OUR o uliI,


Remember our vets Monday, every day
Mr. ."ures


Editor:
Memorial Day, May 29, is the day that we in the United
States commemorate a special day of observance to honor all
the men and women in the armed forces that served our coun-
try and sacrificed their lives in wars, so we may continue to live
in freedom.
During the past few years so many of our young and coura-
Sgeous people have died that others too many enjoy the life of
freedom.
One custom of Memorial Day is to wear the red poppy
flower, which reminds us of a poem we knew as children, "In
Flanders Fields, the poppies grown beneath the crosses row on
row." Wear these paper flowers made by our war veteran, as we
listen to the memorial addresses given by military patriots this
year.
The first memorial address ever delivered in the United
States, in honor of soldiers who fought in the Civil War, was
delivered in Columbus, Ga., on April 6, 1866, by General J.N.
Ramsey.
As we perpetuate the memory of the heroic dead of many
historic wars and recent wars, take time this Memorial Day
and participate in the parades and dedication ceremonies to
honor them and their heroism and valor in service to our
country. We are to remind them and their families that they did
not die in vain, as taps are paid at memorial ceremonies.
The grateful people of this nation do remember and are
thankful for their sacrifice, particularly at the present time
when so many brave men and women of our armed forces in
Iraq and elsewhere sacrifice their lives for us.

Day care center
gets past dark days

Editor:
I would like to say that my
child attends Preschool in the
Pines, and we're very happy


with the care that they pro-
vide.
As responsible parents, we
felt the need to set the record
straight. I feel that Preschool
in the Pines is not trying to
hide the past (they learned


from it) and is trying to move
forward.
Unfortunately, the people
responsible aren't the ones
that have suffered here. It's
the children involved, and the
school.
In a way, I feel that the
paper should focus. on the
people involved, not the
school. What are those teach-
ers and the director who were
involved doing now? Find
them!
There are a lot of wonder-
ful people at Preschool in the
Pines and I'm sure they would
like to be able to focus on the
future.
The school needs commu-
nity support. Young families
are moving to the area in
search of quality day care for
their children. The current
staff at the Preschool in the
Pines is forthcoming and
shares information about the
past. The dark cloud needs to
be lifted.
Our community is not iso-
lated and has had its share of
dark clouds, as most commu-
nities these days. It is the
responsibility of this newspa-
per to alert the public to the
concerns.
But I also feel that it is this
newspaper's responsibility to
praise when things change.
Unfortunately, I have not
seen praise, only reenacting
the past. It is time to let go
and move forward.

Editor:
The National Association
of Letter Carriers held its 14th
annual food drive on May 13.
It is the largest one-day food
drive in the nation.
The Venice and North Port
carriers collected 127,967
pounds of food, which ex-
ceeded last year's amount of
123,000 pounds.
All of this food stays in our
area. The nonperishable food

to use it as needed.
This year's amount will

LET 'EM HAVE IT! D I
SSigned,. 'Trashed' in Nokomis


Signed,'Trashed' in Nokomis


Nokomis slum. I've lived in the Nokomis-Venice area for 12
years and I understand that I'm in the historic district, which is
earmarked for significant improvements in the future. In the
historic district are a couple of large waste management
dumpsters, which are utilized by the surrounding apartments,
duplexes and triplexes. As long as I've lived here these dump-
sters have been a chronic eyesore overflowing with garbage
and furniture, you name it, stacked around them. The neigh-
borhood's been complaining for years and I've complained
and all code enforcement says is it's being dealt with, there's
already a complaint on file. On rare occasions the spot will be
cleaned up but will be the same inside of two weeks. Please
wake up, Sarasota, and hold this property owner effectively
accountable for the dereliction of their property on the south
side of Colonia Lane and Osceola Road in Nokomis.


Need to compete. The sub-
ject is costly drugs elusive
and exclusive. Not complicat-
ed at all if you understand
that competition and volume
bring prices down. Hiding the
profits of insurers and drug
companies actually delivers
higher future drug prices.
Government-restrained
Medicare had the potential to
lower drug -costs through
negotiated volume discounts
and spreading costs over
healthy populations, which
now far too many Type D
insurers try. None of them is
big enough to really negotiate
or compete for volume dis-
counts and instead restrict
pharmacies or legal drug dis-
tribution to cover their
administration and added
profit. More drug restrictions
and allocations rather than
competition.
Needs a spanking. Mayor
Calamaras didn't show up for
the red hat girls at the Gazebo.
All the hoopla with him and
with his picture he has a
bunch of disappointed red
hat girls and he should have
his bottom spanked. What a
poor showing of our mayor.
Early deduction. I was call-
ing about utilities. I have all
my utilities automatically
deducted. Except one, they
I are allays deducted on the
day they're due or the day


before they're due. However,
our telephone is always de-
ducted about 10 days before
it's due. I called and had the
date that they deducted
changed. They're getting from
everyone 10 days' extra mon-
ey every month and they're
the only utility that does that
and I wondered about that. It
doesn't seem fair.
Out of the box. I think the
school board needs to be
spending its money more
wisely. For example, all the
schools now have reading
coaches, data coaches. I think
that they could contract with
some teachers for after-hour
duties to tabulate all the
information for the data. And
the reading coaches, few if
any of them are even certified
as reading specialists. I think
they could hire retired read-
ing specialists that are certi-
fied to come back to the
schools and work park time
on reading. I think they need
to start thinking out of the box
and not rewarding people for
who they know and every-
thing for these positions.
Unprofessional. There
seems to be a lack of profes-
sionalism at Sarasota County
Jail. Many of the correctional
officers aren't very in tune to
professionalism, being abu-
sive regarding food being
served and inmates that are


being housed there. I find it
truly atrocious that they can
even go there.
Asinine. I will not renew
your pitiful paper. Your artist
is the most offensive idiot I've
ever seen. What is this sup-
posed to mean? What is it
supposed to mean when you
say, skeeterr up some vittles?"
That is asinine. Nobody,
South Carolina or not, talks
like that. And 'I do believe
most Southerners know eat
from ate or fixin' to ate. That is
pitiful. I'm done with you.
No tolls. I'm calling in re-
sponse to the question,
should there be toll lanes on I-
75. No, there should not be
toll lanes on 1-75, it is not nec-
essary. They don't have them
on 1-95 on the east coast
where the traffic is much
heavier, and the taxpayers in
the federal government have
already paid for 1-75.
New road. No, there should
not be toll lanes on 1-75, it
would only tie up traffic more.
The best thing to do would be
to build a new toll road
between Tampa and Naples,
east of 1-75.

The argument that land

by people who mostly, care
about tax implications.

Hurricane sales tax holiday continues


LaMorte waiting to learn his fate


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


James LaMorte Sr., an ex-
teacher and a convicted child
molester, still does not know
how he will spend the rest of
his life.
"We are waiting for the
judge to decide," a spokes-
woman in the prosecutor's
office said late Friday. "I do
not know whether his pre-
sentence report is complete,
we have not seen it."
LaMorte, 63, a former
Venice High School coach,
pleaded guilty last month to
sexually abusing a student 25
years ago, will be sentenced
by Sarasota County Circuit
Judge Andrew Owens.
He faces a maximum of 30


years in prison, according to
assistant state attorney Dawn
Buff. She said she had not
decided whether to push for
the maximum sentence.
"However, I certainly will
be arguing for a substantial
amount of time," Buff said
after the plea.
In a move that even took
prosecutor Dawn Buff by sur-
prise, Lamorte pleaded guilty
hours before his trial was
scheduled to start on April 10.
"He pleaded guilty to one
count of sexual assault and
battery on a victim over 12
years old by a person in cus-
todial authority," LaMorte's
attorney Martin Hernandez
said earlier, "and no contest to
'another count of sexual
assault by a person in custo-


dial authority, and one count
of a lewd and lascivious act in
the presence of a child under
16 years old."
Hernandez said LaMorte
waited until the last minute to
plead in order to preserve his
rights of appeal.
He said LaMorte was, "just
letting the judicial process
run its course."
LaMorte's $100,000 bond
was continued.
Wired
The allegations against
LaMorte surfaced in early
2005 after five men, now
adults, came forward and
gave statements to police.
LaMorte, according to
investigators' reports, made
"some admissions" and


"apologized" to the alleged
victims.
The admissions reportedly
came when a victim's friend
consented to wear a "wire"
and confront LaMorte. The
conversation took place at a
local park earlier this year and
was monitored by investiga-
tors.

the end of the season can
only leave Indian fans anx-
ious for more.
Venice loses a few key play-
ers from this year's 17-13 dis-
trict champion and region
semifinalist team, but there is
an awful lot of talent coming
back.
Coaches Craig Faulkner,
Jeff Callan, Joe Komaroskie,
Brendan Curcio and Jose
Velez will stay busy will the
nucleus of next year's team
during summer ball.
Expect a banner season in
2007. ,
Meanwhile, the Venice
High program officially kissed
goodbye to the 2006 season
with a banquet this past
Tuesday night at the Venice
Italian-American Club.
Players, coaches, parents
and fans enjoyed the tradi-
tional Italian feast put on by
the folks at the IAC. The were
speeches, tributes and
awards handed out after-
wards.
Following the introduction
of the junior varsity and varsi-
ty came the presentation of
special awards.

Venice High varsity baseball special award winners show off their plaques following last Tuesday night's season ending banquet
at the Italian-American Club. From left are Joe Salomone (Indian Award), Jeremie Cook (MVP), Jordan Lucas (Best Offense), Ryan
Anderson (Best Pitcher); Brett Holte (Best Defense) and Trevor Pelletier (Grinder and Academic).


runs. He was also a standout
on the mound. His 4-1 record
was tops on the Indians. Cook
was a team leader to boot.
Best Offense Award went
to junior shortstop Jordan
Lucas, who led the team with
a .402 batting average. Cool
hand "Luke" tied for team
lead in home runs (three) and
RBIs (19). Lucas, who was
hurt for a portion of the sea-
son, also pitched.


Best Defense Award was
garnered by senior Brett
Holte, who was a jack-of-all-
trades playing behind the
plate, first base, third base
and outfield. Holte also
pitched relief and had a low
1.13 ERA. Holte batted a hefty
.345 with solid RBI produc-
tion.
Best Pitcher Award went to
junior Ryan Anderson, a left-
hander who was most effec-


tive of Indian hurlers.
Anderson led the team in ERA
(0.94) and strikeouts (39) and
was tied for team lead in wins
(4-2).
The. Indian Award was
earned by senior catcher/in-
fielder Joe Salomone. Salo-
mone, who lost his father Bill
during the season, was
among the leaders in several
offensive categories. He was
the ultimate team player.


The Grinder Award for set-
ting an example through hard
work and leadership went to.
junior outfielder Trevor
Pelletier.
Although losing a chess
match to assistant coach Jose
Velez in just four moves,
Pelletier was brilliant enough
to garner the tean's Aca-
demic Award.
Scholarship Awards went
to Holte and Salomone.

Water board looks to create more unity


BY BOB REDDY
STAFFWRITER

External and internal
forces are guiding the Peace
River/Manasota Regional
Water Supply Authority in the
direction of regionalism.
A special board workshop
looked at how the authority
would develop a strategic
plan, and the group agreed to
have each county's staff work
together in developing one.
The staffs in four counties
- Sarasota, Charlotte, DeSo-
to and Manatee will ana-
lyze what would happen if the
authority had a unitary plan
for doing business.
Lance deHaven-Smith, a
consultant hired by the au-


thority to act as a facilitator for
the bigger discussion, offered
the concept of developing a
unitary regional system.
Such a system addresses
the ideas of exclusivity, con-
nectivity, coverage and com-
munality and how they work
together to benefit the group,
as a whole rather than giving
an advantage to one member
over the other.
Sarasota County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub
said she believed the meeting
was the first step to "figuring
out what we actually want the
water authority to be and
Where we want to go individ-
ually to help get us where we
want to go."
She added that the plan-


ning would start the process
of defining the future of the
authority.
'At least we've got every-
thing on the table," Staub said.

Disadvantaged
Charlotte County Com-
missioner Adam Cummings
said he was willing to consid-
er anything to improve the
way the authority did busi-
ness now and in the future,
"but the issues that have been
,raised by me and Charlotte
County as a whole need to be
addressed."
Those issues include a fair
dealing with each of the four
members of the authority.
Cummings said that since
before he joined the board,


the authority has been mak-
ing "recommendations (that)
consistently come out to the
disadvantage of Charlotte
County where we have to
come out and say'no.' "
He hoped the ultimate
result of the exploration into
changing the system would
be that everyone is treated as
a peer and a partner.
He was skeptical, though,
saying that Manatee County
- which does not buy any
water from the authority -
would never be a peer
because it will always be a
supplier of water.
S"There is no way this can
work out where everyone is
equal," Cummings said.
Staub suggested Cum-


mings might have a point, but
the tide was changing.
"Each deal works for and
against everyone in different
ways," she said.
Staub added that there
would be a number of serious
decisions to make in the near
future.

Big picture
While the unitary system is
what is ideally hoped for the
authority, with each munici-
pality owning its own water
operations, a hybrid system
could before practical.
The county administrators
will look at new resources and
acquisitions and related is-
sues.
"We are trying to stay with


the big picture," Staub said.
The administrators will
show the board the positive
and negative impacts on each
county and what each option
for joint efforts would mean.
The idea of regionalism
and a unitary plan is being
discussed now because the
rules for receiving money
each county receives for wat-
er projects recently changed.
According to the changes
imposed by the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District, all projects thai seek
new water sources should
have a regional component.
That means theywill need the
approval of the water author-
ity to get Swiftmud's financial
support.

"Certainly, the areas that
are seriously eroded .... some
of those homes, of course, are
right on the brink," Wreford
said.
Juergen Matt's home sits
about 30 feet from the beach's
bluff. Other homes in the area
sit within 6 feet, he said.
If commissioners delay the
vote or vote against the pro-
ject, beach-front property
owners could be forced to
move their homes back, away
from the beach.
"We obviously have a con-
cern if we have a serious
storm," he said. "To me, (the
replenishment project) is a
good solution."
But even if the project gets
the go-ahead next month, it
could be thiee years before
the designs and permits are
completed and sand is
pumped onto the beaches.
Matt said islanders are
probably aware of the key's
erosion problem, but said


some don't want to pay for its
remedy.,
There is currently no size,
cost or design associated with
the reno urishment project. A
county-hired consultant
would work out those details
if the board elects to continue
with the plan.
To protect against rapid
erosion, the' replenished
beaches should measure at
least a mile long, Wreford
said. He said if the project
does not include a beach with
public access, the county and
local residents likely
through a taxing district -
would cover the costs without
state participation.
The county's,$11.4 million
south Siesta Key renourish-
ment project is costing
beach-front property owners
about $2 million.
But Wreford said the fund-
ing for each project is unique.
"It's a case-by-case situa-
tion," he said.


EWD mulls Venice expansion


BYGAVINOFF
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

If residents want, the Eng-
lewood Water District is will-
ing to expand into SouthVen-
ice, providing water to some
12,000 lots.
Sarasota County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub
broached the idea in March,
saying the area between
Manasota Beach Road and
Alligator Creek is in need of a
central water system and the
county's financial situation is
prohibiting it from expanding
into the area.
Residents and business
owners' along the 3-mile
stretch use well water.
EWD Administrator Rich
Rollo said that. the water dis-
trict was not interested in in-
creasing its service area, but
the district was "created to
serve the public."
Thi area in question lies
west of State Road 776 and
has the potential to house


some 6,000 homes, Rollb
said. The EWD supplies water
to 16,000 units.
If the public chooses,
"We'd probably almost be
obligated to provide the ser-
vice," Rollo said.
Rollo said he wanted a
public referendum to show
the public's interest in the
EWD moving into the area.
The referendum would then
provide the basis for state
officials to change the water
district's boundaries.
Rollo said a local taxing
district could be created' to
pay for the needed infrastruc-
ture."0ur current customers
would not pay for this expan-
sion," he said.
An expansion into South
Venice could also provide the
water district access' to the
regional water supply loop. He
said a planned ground storage
tank near Keyway Road could
hold the water, which could be
diverted south into Englewood
in atnemergency.

Friends of accident victim
Katie Mathews are stepping
up their efforts to raise funds
for the family.
The 16-year-old Venice
High sophomore was injured
in a car accident May 6. She
was a passenger in a car driven
by Chloe West, also a Venice
High student.
West suffered a broken leg.
Mathews, who was flown to
Bayfront Medical Center,
remains in serious condition.
Mathews is currently
hooked up to a ventilator due
to a collapsed lung, according
tofpLa fae Jyfind. She suffered
a broken neck, punctured
lung and spinal-cord damage.
-Mathews is making
progress, said family friend
Roger Jemigan, a who helped
organize a barbecue fundrais-
er held Friday.
Jernigan said Mathews,
who was in an unresponsive
state, has regained conscious-
ness and is able to blink her
eyes.
Friends and family gath-
ered on Friday for a fundraiser
dinner under a large tent in
the Kmart parking lot on
South Tamiami Trial in Venice.
Proceeds from the chicken,
baked beans and cole slaw
barbecue will go toward med-
ical expenses for the Mathews
family.
More fundraisers are being
planned.
On Sunday Mathews'
friends will hold a fundraiser
car wash at the Pit Stop on U.S.
41 on the island.
Another fundraiser dinner
is scheduled for both accident
victims June 10 at the Venice
Golf & Country Club. Tickets
are $55 a plate.
A savings account was
opened in the name of Katie
Mathews to help defray med-
ical expenses.
Donations are being
accepted to The Katie
Mathews Fund at PO. Box
1445, Venice, 34284.

How I demonstrate my freedom


Editor's note: Marea Forsthoefel
was selected Florida District 10
winner in the Veterans of Foreign
Wars "Voice of Democracy" essay
contest. Her essay was nominated'
byVFW Post 8118 in Venice.

BY MAREA C. FORSTHOEFEL
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN!

From the moment I wake
up, I am faced with many
decisions to make.
As a high school senior, a
typical day involves stress
over school, church and daily
activities. Often I find myself
taking my freedom for grant-
ed. Being born in the United
States of America, I have been
blessed with the liberties we
receive as citizens.
While the choices I make
may seem overwhelming at
first, I know that they are


opportunities my country has
provided me. Still, we must
remember those who sacri-
ficed themselves in order to
preserve our freedom.
I honor them, and my
country, through how I live
my life, taking advantage of
the independence I could
have easily been without.
College brochures and
applications flood my mail-
box, and thoughts of my
future constantly fill my
mind.
As I ponder which college
to attend and what major and
career to pursue, there are
still women in other cultures
who are denied even basic
civil rights; some developing
countries give women no
hope for an education, let
alone a gratifying job.
I am lucky to reside in a
nation that strives for equali-
ty.
The possibilities are end-
less in the United States, as I
can choose to focus my stud-
ies on various aspects and
media of art, while my peers
concentrate on technology or
academics.
During a normal after-
noon, I sit at my desktop
computer; hours upon hours
are spent as I compile video
footage and photographs into
a final product.
Documentaries and trib-
utes are among my repertoire
of genres I create with my
videography skills. When not
editing video, I am drawing,
painting or taking pictures
with my SLR camera.
Many of my rights pro-
claimed in the First
Amendment of the U.S.
Constitution exude from my
artistic hobbies. Through
first-hand accounts and
interviews, subject material
and the overall presentation, I
demonstrate my rights of
speech, and oftentimes press.
The Bill of Rights states
some of our homeland's main
freedoms that affect my daily
life, in addition to those I
express in my artwork.
Freedom of religion is illus-
trated every time I attend a
service at the church of my
choice. After Mass, I walk over
to a small building where I
gather with other teenagers
for Youth Group. We study the
Bible, compose our own plays
based on our faith and even
present them for the commu-


nity to watch.
On occasion, we get to go
on special trips to declare our
beliefs.
On one such trip, three
other devoted teen Catholics
frommy parish and I boarded
a plane from sunny Florida.
Snowflakes gracefully greeted
our arrival in Washington,
D.C., at our airplane's win-
dows as we landed along the
runway
We prepared ourselves for
the blustery conditions we'd
encounter near the Wash-
ington Monument, for we
would exhibit our freedom of
assembly. We joined hun-
dreds to thousands of others
who wanted to stand up for a
controversial issue.
Together, we walked along
Constitution Avenue in the

Centex Homes' Selection Studio announces unique CD


anyone who
1Xas ever
bought or built a
new home knows
there are literally
hundreds of
design deci-
sions to be made
in the process. The Sarasota
division of Centex Homes, however, has
teamed with Bridgeway Media Group to
develop a unique tool to prepare their
customers for making these decisions in
an informed, uns essed apid timely
manner.


An educational and informative
compact disk is given to customers at the
time they sign a purchase contract for a
Centex Homes residence. This compre-
hensive tool, titled "Preparing for your
Design Appointment," is an interactive
CD that guides customers through the
various steps and considerations for
making design decisions prior to the first
of two personal appointments with a
Centex design consultant. By giving the
customer information in advance of
decision-making time, this step of home
buying really becomes the funrpart.
Mindy Oar is the Seledtin udi
It


Manager and oversees a staff of four other
designers at the Sarasota-located studio.
"This CD has been a year in the making
as we gathered and consolidated an
enormous amount of information into a
user friendly format. We are excited about
the ability to give this CD to our cus-
tomers and help them demystify the
design selection process," Oar said.
For general information about Centex
Homes of Southwest Florida or any of its
communities, call the business office at.
(941) 343-4545 or visit \\www.cente\homes.
com and select the region and communi-
ty of interest.

Six Steps to Success


"* Tired of trying to make your way around
that old blender; bassinet, those bikes and boxes of
cast-off clothing? Schedule a garage sale to convert
those extra items into cash.


2. Ask your friends if they want to join in. More
merchandise means more shoppers and more money
for everyone.


3. Clean and polish your items. Fold clothes
neatly and arrange them by size and gender. Group
small pieces (like jewelry) together into plastic bags
so they're easy to price and display.


4. Arrange for plenty of tables and hanging
items so you can display everything prominently.
When it's time, set up your sale so people can move
around easily.


5 Make a list of your best items, and then call
The Sun Classified to schedule your ad. Your ad rep
can help you create an ad that's sure to get customers
calling!


Through The Sun Classified, you'll send the
news of your sale to thousands of potential buyers.
So, get out your change box and get ready to sell!

Take time


to salute

One of my favorite mo-
ments in time is singing "God
Bless America" in church. I
know we'll do that this week-
end. To me it epitomizes
America and our freedom to
worship as we choose.
Let's all remember to hon-
or those who gave their lives
for our country. I hope to see
many young families at Vet-
eran's Park tomorrow teach-
ing their children the purpose
of this solemn day. Bring your
own chair, dress in red, white
and blue and enjoy the morn-
ing. Veteran's Park is on Venice
Avenue near the beach.
Lost and found
I wondered why Lorraine
Coccaro wasn't writing her
column for the Venice Gon-
dolier Sun anymore. I saw her
recently at, the AAUW lun-
cheon. It turns out Lorraine
and her husband Richard
have been in California cele-
brating Sofia. The beautiful
little girl was recently born to
Noah and Maria Coccaro.
Grandma Lorraine and
grandpa Richard enjoy
spendifig time vitli Sofia so.
Lorraine has put writing on
the back burner.
Belated happy birthday
Three cheers to Dr. John
Freeman, who celebrated his
birthday in May. John had a
great time partying with his
wife Barbara and friends.
Barbara is chair of the board
of directors at the Venice Art
Center.
Venice alumni news
Certainly every Venice
High sports fan remembers
Patrick and Jay Sams. These
two boys had great careers at
the school.and now are suc-
cessful young men. Patrick is
the assistant golf pro in the
Hamptons in New York. Jay
and his wife Crystal, who live
in Virginia, recently had a
baby girl they named Jaydyn.
Grandma Carole Johnson
beams when she talks about
her family. Certainly we all
remember her hiding behind
the concession stand not
being able to watch Jay pitch.
Hats off to Gordan
The Sarasota County
School Board recently named
Gordan Stahl their County
Volunteer of the Year. For at
least 20 years Gordan has vol-
unteered at Garden Element-
ary, Taylor Ranch and Venice
Elementary Schools. This nice
man only took some time off
to care for his wife.
Gordan takes his work with
students most seriously. He
listens to boys and girls and
for many of them' is the nice
grandpa in their lives.
Bravo Gordan.
Pat on the back
Three cheers to Bill Mill-
ner,,.director of the Venice
Concert Band and Wes Schu-
macher, director oftheVenice
Symphony These two musi-
cal marvels routinely offer
patriotic music at their con-
certs.
Bill and Wes and their
musicians remind us the
United States is a great place
to live. Their music warms our
hearts with stories of patriots,
honor and love. Each band
celebrates members of the
military.


Son recalls taking dad to dedication



of World War II Memorial


Bob Wallace is all smiles as he takes a long, hard look at the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., during its dedication on Memorial Day two years ago. It
took this country 60 years to figure out how to honor the 16 million men and women who served in the Second World War. By that time most of them were dead.


VETERANS SET
PARADES AND
CEREMONIES FOR
SARASOTA AND VENICE
Memorial Day parades for
Sarasota and Venice will begin
at 10 a.m. Monday, May 29.
The Sarasota parade begins at
Main Street and Osprey
Avenue in Sarasota; Venice's
Memorial Day Parade will
begin from Veteran's Park at
the West end of Venice
Avenue in Venice. The events
are coordinated by the
Sarasota Patriotic Observance
Committee, the Venice Area
Veterans Council and Sarasota
County's Veterans Benefits
Unit.
The Sarasota parade route will
be west along Main Street to
Chaplain J.D. Hamel Park on
Gulfstream Avenue. Marching
units will include the veteran's
services organizations; law
enforcement agencies; fire
departments and their color
guards; civic organizations;
and historical military equip-
ment. The theme of the
Sarasota parade and ceremo-
ny is "All Heroes are Local."
A ceremony at Hamel Park will
begin immediately after the
parade. Featured speaker will
be John McNeill, assistant
adjutant general for
Operations of the Veterans of
Foreign Wars.
Guest speaker in Venice will
be Gregory Putman, comman-
der of American Legion Post
159.
The public is invited to bring
chairs to the ceremonies.
Water will be provided.
Following the ceremony, a
grand opening and open
house for American Legion
Post 159 will be held at 1770
E. Venice Ave. beginning at
11 a.m.


EDITOR'S NOTE: Bill Wilcox, a
semi-retired Punta Gorda Realtor
and builder, took his stepfather,
Bob Wallace, to the dedication of
the World War II Memorial on
Memorial Day two years ago. The
old soldier served with the 5th
Special Brigade Engineers at
Omaha Beach during the Invasion
of Normandy that began June 6,
1944.
Cpl. Wallace's commendations
include: The Purple Heart, Silver
Star for gallantry, European
Theater of Operation Ribbon with
Copper Arrowhead for the invasion
of France on D-Day. He lost both
of his legs to a land mine during
the invasion.
This is their story. Bill wrote it
on the airline on his return trip to
Florida.

BY BILL WILCOX
SPECIAL TO THESUN

Mom and Dad met at
Fisher Aircraft in Memphis,
Tenn., building planes for the
war effort, just a few months
before he shipped out. Dad
came back from the war and
married his own Rosie the
Riveter.
Theirs were tender faces,
sad in love and pain all burst-
ing with pride. Their sons and
daughters escorting their spe-
cial heroes to the WW II
Memorial Dedication in
Washington, D.C., on May 29,
2004.
The Red Cross patch
caught my eye. She was wear-
ing her original uniform and
standing tall in filtered sun-
light under a big oak tree, a
scene from a Norman Rock-
well painting. I shook her
hand, thanked her and asked,
"Where were you?"
'France ... Normandy at
first,' she replied.
My Dad went ashore on
Omaha.
'Oh!' she said urgently. 'I
have to talk to him.' "
She was one of those vol-

er during the dedication of the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.


unteer nurses who found her-
self in a hospital tent with the
nearby sounds of battle and
hundreds of dead and dying
soldiers to comfort.
"'You could see the relief in
their eyes when they saw the
face of a woman. Well, I was
just a girl then. There were so
manywounded,"' she said.
Bob, my stepfather, was
sitting in his wheelchair wear-
ing his original uniform. As
she approached him there
was no awkwardness, no pre-
text or shyness. They immedi-
ately fell into conversation,
reunited after 60 years. Bob's
two daughters and Sue, a next
door neighbor from Little
Rock, Ark. (where my stepfa-
ther lived) took photograph
after photograph.
As these veterans moved
around Washington's Nation-
al Mall they searched the
crowd for a uniform, a face, a
familiar shoulder patch or
campaign ribbon. They met
and talked. With World War II


veterans dying at more than
1,100 a day, there was a feel-
ing in the air that this dedica-
tion came just in time.
"Where were you? What
unit? You were just to our left
on the beach. How many?
Yeah, I know!"
The sun over the Mall fil-
tered through a few high
clouds. A jacket felt good in
the shade. The whole affair
had the tone of an outdoor
church service with a few
hundred thousand in atten-
dance. People walked slowly,
even the children were sub-
dued.
When several old soldiers
huddled in their uniforms
around Bob, you could smell
the attics and footlockers of
America opening up for what
may be a final reunion for
many of them. As you looked
around the Mall you could
almost see these old heroes
evaporating up through the
sun.
There were hundreds of


memorial encounters. Veter-
ans, active duty soldiers, fam-
ilies and kids seeking auto-
graphs. One young aspiring
Tom Brokaw, probably 10
years old, in a white dress
shirt and khaki pants, ap-
proached Bob with his note
pad and asked, 'Do you mind
if I ask you a few questions?'
Bob, who loves kids, really
enjoyed the attention.
A family was expressing
their thanks as one of their
children, who looked to be 3
or 4 years old, noticed Bob's
legs were gone. The child
seemed intrigued and Bob
encouraged his curiosity. His
mother looked on, a little
mortified. I knew what was
coming, as I had seen this
scene played out with several
generations of nieces and
nephews.
The child looked up Bob's
pants legs and asked,
" 'Where are your feet?'"

Tropical fragrances of Florida


In Florida there's nothing
that can compare to the fra-
grances emanating from a


gardenia, a night blooming
jasmine or an orange grove
in full bloom. Growers seem
to be cultivating more and
more flowers that appeal to
the senses. It seems like just
yesterday (actually it was
when I was a kid) that I'd
tromp through the snow and
sleet to our annual Home
and Flower Show up north.
You emerged from the dol-
drums of a dreary winter
day to a magical world
where it was spring and
gardens were growing pro-
fusely. The show gardens,
landscaping and specimen
plants were all upstairs in
the main hall. But in the
basement of the public
auditorium were the garde-
nias. Oh, that smell! I
remember begging my mom
to splurge on a gardenia that


I knew would last only a day
or two, then turn brown. I
learned early that their
blooms are fragile. But
when I was a mother of the
bride, I was reacquainted
with a gardenia as a corsage
flower.
"First Love" is creamy
white and extra fragrant,
with a rose-like shape, is
double-flowered and twice
the size of most gardenias.
It is in the process of being
patented and is available
on the Web at wayside-
gardens.com.
We're lucky that we can
grow gardenias in this envi-
ronment. Acid soil is about
all they need different. The
shiny leaves make a beauti-
ful showing and a hedge-
row is absolutely spectacular
in their greenery and bloom.


PHOTOS COURTESY OF PERRY POWER


Gardenias grow well in the Florida climate.


An acid-loving fertilizer like
you would give azaleas is
the answer; it keeps the
leaves from turning yellow.
Make sure to plant garden-
ias in a location where you
can enjoy their splendid
fragrance, full sun or part
shade.
Perry Power was nice
enough to send us pictures
of his gardenia and a nice
close up of the bloom.
Keep sending us your pic-
tures, and happy gardening!

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist


Q. I know alot of people who
have purchased hearing aids
but do not wear them. Why?
A. Historically, hearing aids
did not have computers in them
so both speech and background
noises were made
.uncomfortably loud. This
prevented man\ people from
wearing their hearing aids in
social situations where they
needed them the most!
Unfortunately, these types of
hearing aids are still around
and are advertised at very low
prices. While the prices sound
good, the instruments
themselves, do not. All of this
has changed with the newest
technology. There are now
digital instruments available
with directional microphones
which improve listeners ability
to hear in noisy places.
However, these new
computerized hearing aids only
work well if they are
programmed properly.
Audiologists are specially
trained to insure that a hearing
aid is properly-meeting the
wearers needs. If you currently
are not using the hearing aids
you own, call Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. at 492-4327 for a hearing
aid evaluation to determine
how they can be improved with
proper programing.

gon, Idaho, Montana, Colo-
rado, Wyoming and parts of
New England. A few lynx have
found their way into northern
New York, Michigan, Wisco-
nsin and Minnesota.
That lineup of habitats
clearly indicates the lynx's
fondness for living in deep
forests, especially evergreen
woods with rocky ledges,.
swamps and thickets of
brush. There also are lynx in
the forests of Eastern Europe
and across Asia (Siberian
lynx). They prefer to stay
away from people, unlike
their similarly bob-tailed
"cousin," the bobcat.
Lynx are larger than bob-
cats, weighing up to twice as
much. Both species have
coarse, tufted hair on the tips
of their ears, which almost
feels like the whiskers of our
housecats. The color of the
lynx's coat varies with its
habitat from light gray,
with some brown to black
hairs, to tan, with lots of vari-
ations. Their paws are enor-
mous, and the paws are heav-
ily furred. This helps the lynx
chase prey over deep snow
without sinking. In fresh pow-
der snow, for instance, a lynx
will only sink an inch or two.
Those big paws make lynx
strong swimmers, too.
All cats, including the lynx,
have excellent eyesight. They
have little mirror-like cells
that magnify available light
inside their eyes. Those cells
allow them to see in very low
light. It's those "reflector" cells
that cause a cat's eyes to glow
in the dark when bright light
shines on them.

survival is very closely related
to the population of snow-
shoe hares in their territories.
It's at this time of year
(April and May) that lynx give
birth to their young and while
then a male and female may
share a territory, the mother
does all the parenting. Litters
can number from one to six
cubs. The number of cubs
born is directly related to the
abundance (or lack thereof)
of food in the territory. Cubs
nurse for four or five months.
They begin to venture out of
the den in a tree hollow or a
small cave at about two
months of age. The cubs will
stay with their mother until
the following spring. Then it's
time for them to live on their
own in the wild.
Both wolves and cougars
are predators of lynx. But it
seems that humans are hav-
ing the greatest impact on the
survival of this fascinating
species as we take away more
and more wilderness habitat.
When people move into, or
use wilderness for recreation,
these shy creatures must find
new homes. If we protect the
habitats of these animals and
give them their private space,
the lynx will continue to
thrive in North America, and
around the world.

WELL-BEING


The 'eyes' have it


STORY AND PHOTOS BY MARY NEACY
GUEST WRITER

It was just another one of
those "maintenance" ap-
pointments most of us have
on our calendars: the annual
physical, the dermatologist,
the dentist, etc. This one was
my yearly eye exam. Over the
past year my eyesight had
become an annoying factor
in my life. You know the feel-
ing: I had to have help with
phone numbers, reading
seemed to make my eyes
tired, I was forever blinking
to try to clear my vision, and
I could never find my glasses
when I needed them -
which seemed to be more
and more often.
The technician gave me
the usual preparatory drill -
reading the eye charts (which
didn't go very well!), dilating
my eyes with drops before
my ophthalmologist, Dr. Dee
Stephenson, appeared for the
in-depth exam. After giving
her a rundown of my com-
plaints, thinking I would
probably have to have a new
prescription, I was surprised
to. hear her say, "Well, Mary,
your cataracts have grown
much faster than we antici-
pated and that's what caus-
ing your problems."
Cataracts! I vaguely re-
membered hearing some-
thing about cataracts in my
previous exams but it hadn't
made much of an impres-
sion. "I thought cataracts
were very slow growing," I
said. "This really wasn't some-
thing I was expecting." My
voice sounded whiney, even


to me.
Dr. Stephenson explained
that most cataracts do devql-
op slowly and don't usually
disturb your eyesight early
on. "Not all cataracts affect
your vision significantly or
require treatment." she said.
"When they begin to interfere
with your normal lifestyle,
surgery is the only way to
treat them. The decision for
surgery is based on the indi-
vidual's symptoms," she went
on. "Not everyone who has
cataracts has to have them
removed."
Surgery? Now that was a
word I hadn't expected to
hear either! "What IS a
cataract anyway?" I asked.
"Well," she continued,
"the natural lens in your
eye is responsible for focus-
ing light and producing
clear, sharp images. A
cataract is a clouding of that
natural lens which makes it
difficult to read, drive a car
or see the details around
you. One or both eyes can be
affected. Yours are in both
eyes and that's why your
eyesight is deteriorating.
The majority of cataracts
are simply a result of the
aging process," she added,
smiling at me.
Three indignities in one
morning was a bit much -
cataracts, surgery and aging
- all of which were out of
my control. So we moved on
and set a date for the two
surgeries; they were to be
done a week apart as outpa-
tient procedures at the Surg-
ery Center at St. Andrews
on East Venice Avenue.


What to expect
"What happens during the
surgery?" I inquired, some-
what hesitatingly. Did I really
want to know?
Dr. Stephenson graciously
used lay terms to describe
what would happen in the
procedure. "The clouded lens
is removed and a clear, per-
manent, artificial lens is im-
planted. It's called an intra-
ocular lens (IOL)" she said.
"The surgery itself only takes
about 10 minutes but the
entire process, from arrival to
departure, is about an hour.
You'll receive just a local or
topical anesthetic so we can
talk during the procedure if
we need to. Oh, and you do
need someone to drive you
home," she told me.
I was a bit put off by the
idea of being awake during
surgery, but I didn't want to
admit my squeamishness.
There were lots of other
questions to ask and answer
but I figured my brain had
enough to digest for the
moment so when the office
staff gave me an appointment
for the following week, I just
nodded and said OK, I'd be
there.
When I returned, I discov-
ered that prior to surgery, the
size and shape of your eyes
have to be measured to deter-
mine the proper lens implant
power. After surgery is com-
plete, you're given a card for
each eye that contains the
specific information about
the implant just in case it's
ever needed. The measure-
ment is done with a painless
ultrasound test that only

takes a few minutes. I was
also given a lengthy medical
history form to complete and
take with me to St. Andrews
when I went for the first
surgery, which was to be on
the left eye. "If you don't re-
member to take it with you," I
was reminded, "you'll have to
do it there!" Since I can't re-
member my address much
less my Social Security num-
ber when under pressure, I
filled it out as soon as I

Snip-a-doodle-do might do the trick


The first thing that tipped
us off that there was a prob-
lem was when old man
Ortega's rooster disappeared.
He reported it to the police,
too, who thought this neigh-
borhood alarm clock finally
met with a dissatisfied cus-


tomer who was now gleefully
making dumplings.
The police said as much to
Ortega, and the old man
wanted to know what the
police were going to do about
it. Well, since it had been
almost a week since they'd
had a complaint come in, the
chief sent young Glen around
the neighborhood asking
chicken questions. Everyone
denied ending ol' Doodle's
career ... when they finished
laughing ... and a cursory
exam of yards and garbage
cans failed to turn up brown
or red feathers. The prelimi-
nary poultry purloining pur-
suit then ended with a curso-
ry report filed down at the cop
shop, with old man Ortega
getting a copy of it.


Ortega had his suspicions,
of course. There was one
neighbor lady who had once
complained about the rooster
to Ortega, and he had defend-
ed to her very face his roost-
er's right to crow. She then
asked if he couldn't get ol'
Doodles operated on, like
they do to dogs, and get his
doodler clipped so he'd be
singing blanks, as it were.
Ortega hotly replied that
anyone who would deliber-
ately maim an American
rooster would steal sheep.
Later on, he apologized to her
for blowing off steam, told her
he really didn't think of her as
a sheep thief, and offered to
buy her some ear plugs that
they sell out at the shooting
range. She passed on the ear


plug offer, but poured him a
cup of coffee and that seemed
to be that.
But still, ol' Doodles was
gone, and there was no deny-
ing that.
If he had simply escaped
and was still in town, we'd
have heard him somewhere,
so that was ruled out.
We finally put two and two
together when another
neighbor caught a coyote
going over the fence with one
of his hens, but we always
wondered about that doo-
dler-snipping operation. We'll
have to ask Doc about it.

SENIOR SCENE


Heart and brain work as a team


Most of .us put our hand
over our heart when we say
the Pledge of Allegiance. We
say we are heartsick ... is our
heart really sick? What is a
heart ache? Do you have a
heart ache because your chil-
dren live too far away and
don't get to see you often
enough? Susie declares she
cannot live, her heart is bro-
ken in two because her
boyfriend left her.
SNow wait a minute, we
know perfectly well that we
don't pledge allegiance with
our heart, that Susie's heart is
intact, that our hearts really
don't break over emotions,
when we say heartsick, that
doesn't mean our heart is sick.
We know that we feel emo-
tions in the head and not in
the heart. But somehow,
referring to the heart is more
romantic than talking about
the brain. We don't go around
saying I am brainsick or my
brain is broken. I dunno!


When you are 92-1/2 you
begin to think a little bit about
your heart. Outside of some
medicine, mine has never
been repaired. It has beat
every second of every minute,
of every hour of every day, of
every week of every month, of
every one of those years. All
this time it has gone "chug-a-
lug, chug-a-lug," "I think I
can, I think I can." Pretty darn
amazing isn't it? I dunno!
When my scientist daugh-
ter, Jean, was visiting me, I
asked her just what does the
heart do for me? As most of
you know, she said, "the heart
is a pump that pumps the
blood to the rest of the body.
The blood delivers oxygen to
the cells of the body and
removes the carbon dioxide.
It carries nutrients to the dif-
ferent organs in the body and
removes the waste that has
built up." We couldn't survive
long without the heart, she
tells me.
I guess we will always cred-
it our heart for our emotions,
but if we stop and think about
it, we realize it is really the
brain that handles the emo-
tions.
Oke dokey, then what does
the brain do, I asked since
most of her research and
teaching in the medical
school deals with the brain.
Her off-the-cuff explanation:
"The brain controls all of the
body and one's emotions. The
brain sends nerve impulses to


the heart to control the heart
beat and the force of contrac-
tion of the heart. So when you
are in love, the brain tells the
heart to beat faster. So your
heart is always ready to
respond to emotions." Wow!
Do we think more about
the heart than the brain? Do
we ever stop to realize it is a
phenomenal team? I dunno!
Going back to see all the
places this team has taken me
is what started me on this
subject. With them I have
wandered through child-
hood, teens, college, mar-
riage, children, exciting posi-
tions, travel, touching down
on six continents, and 20
minor and major surgeries.
My helper tells me I am get-
ting in much too deep ... I had
better stop before I drown.
And you know what? After all
this learning, I will still always
tell my children that I love
them with all my heart.
So do we decide to make
great decisions with our
heart? I dunno! But it doesn't
sound that way, does it? It
seems to me that the heart
and the brain work as a team
and "You can't have one with-
out the other."

Knowing when an aging



relative needs help

STAFF REPORT "


For many people, indepen-
dence is something they fall
in love with the very first time
they experience it. Whether
it's a teenager left home alone
for the first time or a college
student finally leaving the
nest, that first taste of inde-
pendence can be a wonderful
thing, something most people
want to maintain'the rest of
their lives. Unfortunately, as
people grow older, indepen-
dence can often be a detri-
ment to their well being, leav-
ing their loved ones in a diffi-
cult position with respect to
their care.
Deciding to put a parent or
an elderly relative in a care
facility is never an easy deci-
sion, as chances are that per-
son will want to remain inde-
pendent. You may also feel
guilty about the decision -
wondering if the facility can
provide the best care. To help
you make the correct call,
here are some things to con-
sider, courtesy of AARP that
should help you rest easier
with whatever you decide:
Physical health. This is
typically one of the more
decisive factors in whether a
nursing home is the right
move for your loved one.
Chronic disease, such as dia-
betes or arthritis, can greatly
limit an elderly person's inde-
pendence, sometimes mak-
ing it impossible for them to
live on their own. If you can-
not care for them adequately
enough,, a -nursing, home ,or
another facility might be your
only option. In addition, heart
disease, stroke or cancer can
also rob loved ones of their
.independence, meaning a
nursing home might be the
best option for sufferers, of
these diseases as well.
Mental health. Typically,
Alzheimer's is a chief concern
for relatives of the elderly. If
your loved one appears dis-
oriented most of the time or


SBAUERS. C.H.


PHOTO COURTESY OF AARP
As elderly relatives age, independence can often be a detri-
ment to their well being.


has regular feelings of confu-
sion, professional help might
be the best decision. Also,
bouts with depression or anx-
iety can be difficult to deal
with if you're not trained to do
so. While these conditions do
not mandate you put your
loved one in a home, it may
be necessary if someone can-
not be available round-the-
clock to provide care.
Medication use. Pay close
attention to your loved one's
medication routine. If he's
forgetting to take his medica-'
tion or taking too much, or
even failing to remember if he
took it or not, independence
is no longer a legitimate
option. Too little or too much
medication can prove to be a
fatal mistake.,,
o.* Daily living skills. While
few elderly people can get up
and go like they used to,
exhibiting difficulty with
some of the more routine


tasks a day presents could be
a sign that help is necessary.
Struggles with bathing, dress-
ing or even using the toilet
indicate a dwindling ability to
live independently. Similarly,
such struggles might leave

you worried about your loved
one's ability to cook and clean
for themselves, which could
lead to tragedy. Similar to
other areas of concern, this
should be looked at subjec-
tively. If your loved one still
has his mental-health but
might be struggling with
some of the aforementioned
tasks, perhaps having him
move in with a younger rela-
tive or hiring someone to help
him can help you avoid the
nursing-home scenario. If no
such supportsystem is realisT
tic, a home could be your best
move.

Historic Homes & Gardens train tour was grand and luxe


Historic train finally leaves the station, headed for Charleston


On the third day, passengers aboard the
American Orient Express Train, soon to be known
as Grandluxe Rail Journeys, headed out of the
Savannah Railroad station toward Charleston.


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

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

With visions of camelias,
dogwood and azaleas in our
hearts, we were on our way
north, the first actual train
travel since boarding the his-
toric train in Savannah two
days earlier.
Because of continuing
problems related to Hurri-
cane Katrina in the New Or-
leans area, the traditional
Antebellum South tour itiner-
ary had been changed, cut-
ting out stops in New Orleans,
Vicksburg and Birmingham,
in favor of spending more
time at the eastern end of the
trip, concentrating on Savan-
nah, Charleston and Rich-
mond. The upside was that
we would really be able to see
the three cities in depth but
the downside meant less
actual train travel.
Iwas apart of the group for
the six-night, seven-day ad-
venture featuring the homes
and gardens of the Ante-
bellum South. The 14-car his-
toric 1950s-era train was our
hotel. My "hotel" room was
my very own vintage Pullman
compartment. With two
berths and a toilet/shower
compartment, it technically
had room for two but, with
my laptop and plans.to-write-.
*travel-stories on the road. I
was very happy to have all
that space to myself. I could
plug my cell phone in one
outlet and my laptop in
another one, setting the com-
puter up on the foldaway
table that was just slightly
larger than my 15-inch wide
Power Book.
As our second day in
Savannah drew to a close we
boarded the train, cleaned up
for cocktail hour and dinner
on board and looked forward
to some train travel, which
would occur during the din-
ner period.
I met up with my new
friends Sharon Jones and Lou
and Steve Lorton in the
Seattle Club car, where we lis-
tened to Bonnie Hackett play-
ing the piano that had been
literally built into the car. She
can play just about any song a
person can think of so had no
trouble with my favorite John
Lennon tune, "Imagine."
Dinner is served nightly at
6 p.m. and the four of us were
rarely late, usually sharing a
table for four in either the
Chicago or Zurich dining car.
We already had some fav-
orites among the wait staff so
tended to gravitate in their
direction.
At every meal there were
choices. At dinner, there were
always an appetizer, soup and
salad, three entree selections
and at least three dessert
selections. No one ever said
that it was easy to travel
aboard the AOE/now Grand-
luxe trains. That Friday night
the menu featured a cara-
melized onion tartlet for an
appetizer. Since I don't care
for bleu cheese, I was saved so
just had the sweet potato
soup and salad of fried green
tomatoes. Choosing an en-
tree was tougher but our wait-
er, Matthew, suggested I
could have a half and half
combination so I had a beef
tornedo, fresh green beans
and a roasted herb lamb chop
with smashed red bliss pota-
toes. The mahi mahi sounded
good too but even my tummy
can hold only so much.
Desserts that night were
red velvet cake, coconut rum
caramel flan and seasonal


fresh fruit. I went for the fresh
fruit as the train rocked along
on our too-short hop to
Charleston. The views were
spectacular along the way, at
least until sunset.
Returning to our compart-
ments, which were all in a row
in the Montreal car, we found
our nightly piece of chocolate
and the next day's itinerary on
our made-up berths. After
breakfast, which was served,
7-8:30 a.m., we were to
detrain at 8:45 a.m. for a
horse-drawn carriage ride of
downtown Charleston, some
time at the old Charleston
Marketplace, lunch at the
Vendue Inn, which was con-
ceived from French Quarter
exchanges built as early as
1783, and afternoon tours of
private homes and gardens
via motor coach or free time
in Charleston. At 5 we were
back on board the train,
enjoying some more music by
Bonnie Hacket and preparing
for another gourmet meal.
On the bus ride from the
train station into downtown
Charleston we passed the
Citadel, which dates to the
18th century, and were told


that North Charleston was an
industrial center during the
war and the area we were
passing through was mostly
plantations during the Civil
War. Things are somewhat
different today. North
Charleston is an important
port, from which BMWs
manufactured in nearby
Spartenburg are shipped


amazing. Once aboard, we .-
stopped at a little booth
where our carriage driver was
given the number of the tour
we were to take. Then she told
the horse and off we went, '
"the horse knows the way..."
And Chief did.
"Chief knows eight differ-
ent tours," our driver re-
sponded when I asked her
how the horse knew where to
go in the city.
Chief, an older horse, is in
semi-retirement. It. is a
French Percheron draft horse,
about 17-18 years old.
"Working keeps her in
shape," our driver, Louisa
Pittman, a local Charleston .:-
College senior, said. "She is
color blind but she knows the
lights."
While Pittman had a whip
in hand, I think that was more
for effect, and part of her cos-
tume because the carriage-
pulling horse stopped at

also told us about the sea-
grass baskets for which,
Charleston is famous. Small
ones can sell for as much as
$200 because they are com-
pletely handmade. It takes
hours to make one basket of
the carefully coiled and hand-
wrapped seagrass.
The Citadel went coed
some years back and has
about 200 women students
today. Dress parades are a
popular sight to see on Friday
afternoons. Also a popular
tourist attraction although we
had no time to visit it, is the

"The Holy City was
Charleston's nickname be-
cause there were so many
churches here," she said.
The trees in bloom when
we were there were Japanese
magnolias or peppermint

"From 1701 to 1719,
Charleston was a walled city,"
Pittman said. "After the Revo-

the Ashley River."

pointed out the single and
double houses for which the
old city is famous, and the
gardens between houses. The
single houses, each one-room
wide, with side-yard facing
porches and a door from the
street to that porch, are the
most popular homes she said.
In Charleston, tearing
down old buildings is not an
option.
We also learned that the
'.: most haunted"ibulild .in. i'
Charleston is the old jail,
which was known for the bru-
tality that occurred within its
walls 1802-1939.
Other ghosts are said to
remain at a north Charleston
house, once used as an inn. Its
owners would befriend the
guests, learning if anyone
would be meeting them at the
end of their travels and, if not,
the hostess would serve some
oleander tea, which is deadly
poisonous, and leaves the vic-
tim appearing to have had a
heart attack. Lonely moneyed
victims would be robbed and
their bodies disposed of
overnight. The innkeepers got
away with this for years, until
1822; when a traveler figured
out the scheme, when he fell
asleep in a comer of the room
and awakened to see the
backup plan devised by the
innkeeper. Should a guest not
drink the oleander tea, the
innkeeper had rigged a trap
door beneath the bed. As the
traveler awakened that night,
he saw the bed disappear
through a hole in the floor. He
escaped, ran to town and
reported what happened.
Some 30 bodies were discov-
ered in the back yard.
When sentenced to death
(the first women so sen-
tenced) the wife said she had
three requests: that her hus-'
band be hanged first, that she

She thought she might be
freed that way but it did not
work and she was hanged
with her husband, but not

you have a message for the
devil, give it to me now
because I'll be having dinner
with him tonight," she said.
This was at least my fifth
trip to Charleston the past few
years, but my first carriage
ride. While it was included
with the cost of the train trip,
it would have been worth the
cost, even if it had not. I also
have taken two ghost tours of
Charleston. At least 15 are
offered.
After lunch, we headed
back to the train mid-after-
noon. That night would be
our one opportunity to sleep
on a moving train as we
rocked and rolled along the
tracks to Richmond, where
we would spend the last two
nights.
Dinner that night featured
a soft-shell crab appetizer,
roasted asparagus soup,
Caesar salad and a choice of
prime rib, herb-roasted game
hen or red snapper followed
by Bailey's chocolate pot de
creme, brown sugar spice
cake or fresh fruit.
I went for the prime rib and

never met a chocolate any-
thing I couldn't tolerate so I
went for the pot de creme, fig-

the more easily I could rock
myself to sleep.
Because I didn't want to
miss the train ride to Rich-
mond, I wasn't really keen on
sleeping that night. So I sort of
did both. I dozed a bit off and
on, finally falling to sleep for a
bit after we arrived at the sta-
tion at Richmond. The Rich-
mond station is behind the
science museum and its only
regular visitor on the train
tracks is the AOE/Grandluxe

the tours, which include
Richmond.
The next day we would
journey to Monticello, have
lunch at Mitchie Tavern and
be back aboard the train at 4

This concludes part three
of a multi-part series on the

several land "cruises" aboard
the vintage rail cars of

I don't


know. I


don't work


here!

The other day, I went to see
a play at a local theater.
Having some time before the
show started, I decided to
camp out on a chair and do
some work that I had gotten
behind in. Unfortunately, I
didn't get much work done.
Every time someone entered
the lobby of the theater, they
came up to me and asked for
something. Some handed me
their tickets, others asked if I
had the tickets they needed to
pick up, and others wanted to
know where the show was
playing. I think I got about
two minutes of actual work
done for my real job, but did
45 minutes of work helping
out patrons of this theater. I
went in the box office and
demanded a paycheck only to
be laughed at.
This type of problem hap-
pens to me a lot. I am con-
stantly being mistaken for an
employee of whatever estab-
lishment I am in. It is com-
ptetelv- frustrating to be iii one
state of mind, quietly shop-
ping, thinking about whether
or not I have toilet paper and
have someone come up to me
and ask where I keep the
sliced oranges.
Another instance occurred
while I was in the shoe
department of Macy's trying
to find a pair of shoes to
match my suit. Suddenly,
while I was trying to figure out
where the clerk was, a lady
handed me a shoe and asked,
"Do you have these in a
size 7?"
Shoe in hand, I looked at
her dazed. I was confused.
bid I do something that made
me look like an employee?
Did I linger near the cash reg-
ister for too long while I was
looking at a shoe? What made
this woman think that I was
the one to get her a size when
I needed the very same assis-
tance?
I politely handed the shoe
back to her and said, "I'm
sorry. I don't work here." She
took back the shoe, and dis-
appointed, said, "Oh," as she
walked away with the contro-
versial shoe. She seemed as
though it was my fault for the
mistake. What did I do?
But who ofthe two of us
should have been more
upset? Here I was, happily
looking for shoes only to be
interrupted with an assign-
ment from someone. I believe
most people want to help oth-
ers when there is a request,
but when I don't actually work
in the place where said per-
son needs the help, there isn't
much I can do.

Conservation

key during

dry season

With the rainy season still a
few weeks away, the South-
west Florida Water Manage-
ment District would like to
remind residents that conser-
vation is the key to maximiz-
ing our water supply. Ap-
proximately 60 percent of our
annual 52 inches of rain falls
from June through Septem-
ber.
Conserving water indoors
is a great way to make a differ-
ence and it's as easy as chang-
ing a few simple behaviors.
Consider this, you can save
up to 1,000 gallons of water
per month by only running
the washing machine and
dishwasher when they are
full.
A person can also save up
to 1,000 gallons of water per
month by turning off the
water while brushing his or
her teeth and shaving..

fused for an employee at
Target. Perhaps it is because I
shop there a lot or because I
have a lot of red shirts, I am
uncertain. However, I have
been mistaken so many times
'for a Target employee that I
am currently taking measures
to get an honorary employee
discount.
One time I was visiting
Target I dressed in normal
clothes, no red shirts andkhaki
pants as I have mistakenly
worn to Target on many other
unfortunate occasions. How-
ever, I did wear a name badge
from my present job. I was
casually looking at a handbag I
was certain I.didn't need when
a woman came up to me and
asked if I knewwhere she could
find men's socks.
My concentration was bro-
ken from the handbag, and I
looked up at the elderly
.woman in frontof me.:It was
happening again I Was in a
store I didn't work in, and
someone was asking me to
help them. I wanted to say to
the lady, "I don't work here,
lady."
But I didn't. I couldn't. Her
hopeful .eyes simply needed
some help, but I had to ask
myself if I even knew where
the men's socks were. I looked
around for a real employee in
the hopes that he or she could
take some of the burden away
from me after all, he or she
was getting paid, and I wasn't.
With resignation, I politely
replied back to her, "They are
over that way," and I pointed
in the opposite corner, hop-
ing to God that they were
actually in that corner. She
said back to me, so nicely,
"Thank you, miss. You are so
helpful."
Now,. I have to say that
Target has some of the nicer
patrons that have mistaken
me for an employee. There'
have been times that my mis-
taken identity has gotten me
into screaming matches, and
my so-called manager was
going to be informed of my
bad behavior.
While dining out at a pizza
place with friends, I got up to
get us some more napkins:
When I reached the napkin
and condiment station, I was
disgusted by the mess I found
there. Garbage was every-
where, and I had to sift my
way through it to find the
napkin dispenser. Another


guest of the establishment
came up behind me, and she
also was disturbed by the
mess. So disturbed in fact, she
started yelling. But when I
actually became cognitive of
her rants, I realized she was
yelling at me.
"Every time I come here
this place is a mess. This place
hires the most incompetent
people I have ever seen; You
really need to clean up this
mess."
Wait a minute.
I need to clean up this
mess?
Me?
"Excuse me?" I felt com-
pelled to ask.
"You heard me," she snap-
ped back. "This place is a mess
and you need to clean it up."
I couldn't believe this was
happening to me. I had
become used to people ask-
ing, ne.where things were dn
stores and being nice about it,
but no one had ever given me
a nasty order and insulted me
before.
This woman truly believed
that I worked there. I couldn't
tell if I was more upset because
of my frustration at how often I
.am mistaken for an employee,
or if I was upset that she was
such a clueless person that she
automatically assumed that I
worked there and was respon-
sible for the mess.
Finally, I lost my head.
I screamed back, "I don't
work here, lady. Clean up the
mess yourself."
Then, as if she heard only
part of what I said, she said
she was going to call the man-
ager about me and demand-
ed my name.
I screamed back, "Go right
ahead and call the manager. I
don't care," and I told her my
name and exactlyhowto spell it
I still wonder to this day if
she called and how she react-
ed when she learned I didn't
work there.
So, I guess my point is to
always be considerate of
employees at establishments,
especially if they are courte-
ous to you. If you don't know
that they work there for cer-
tain, they might not work
there at all. To quote Chuck
Berry, "You never can tell."

EYES from Page 5B


arrived home. It truly was
all encompassing I had to
recall things I hadn't thought
of in years!
Of course, I had friends
who had experienced cata-
ract surgery, but it's kind of
like learning to drive until
you're actually in the driver's
seat, its someone else's prob-
lem. So, here I was, in the
driver's seat. The day before
surgery was scheduled, I got
a call from St. Andrews telling
me to be there at 6:45 a.m.
the next day, not to wear
cosmetics, and not to eat or
drink anything after mid-
night that night. Later, Dr.
Stephenson phoned to
touch base and to see if I
had any questions or con-
cerns. It was too late to
change my mind, so ready
or not, the "GO" light was on.
The 10-minute procedure
I'll spare you the details of
registering and waiting to
hear my name called after
arriving at the prescribed
time and place. Eventually, I
was escorted by a pleasant
nurse back to the pre-op


room where patients were
already lying on gurneys,
awaiting surgery. Before long,
I was one of them, with a
plastic cover over my hair,
listening to the nurses' chat-
ter as they went about the
business of applying eye
drops, eye drops, and more
eye drops to my left eye, over
a designated period of time.
These, I was assured, would
numb my eye for the surgery.
I recall I wasn't very chatty
myself, wondering just how
numb my eye would have to
be not to feel anything! Be-
sides, I was really cold. As if
someone had read my mind,
a lovely, heated blanket sud-
denly covered me. It felt
marvelous! Evidently, being
cold goes with the territory.
About that time, the anes-
thetist arrived and intro-
duced herself. She briefly
described how the anesthesia
would be given, explaining
again that I wouldn't actually
be asleep. The nurse inserted
the needle, with an opening
for the anesthesia, in my wrist
area, and before I realized it,
we were headed for the oper-

eyesight during an office visit following cataract surgery.


eating room. I have a vague
recollection of being greeted
by Dr. Stephenson, of my face
being covered except for the
left eye, of various colored
lights waving around some-
where, perhaps in my mind's
eye, and then really coming
awake when the covering was
pulled off my face I hadn't
known it was taped down.
That smarted a bit! I had
absolutely no sense of how
much time has passed; it
could have been hours or
weeks for all I knew, but, in
actuality, it was only about 10
minutes.
Awake now, I walked with a
nurse to the recovery room
not far away, where I was
greeted by a St. Andrews vol-
unteer and seated in a com-
fortable chair. When she
offered me juice or coffee, I
greedily opted for both, along
with cinnamon toast. At
some point my left eye had
been covered with a patch.
Until the next patient come
into the room, I pictured
myself with the black patch
favored by swashbuckling
heroes of movie fame. My
ego was seriously deflated
when I saw the huge silver
colored affair staring at me
on the face of the woman
across the room. No doubt
about it, even a person with
cataracts wouldn't have trou-
ble honing in on that target!
My. ride came shortly
thereafter and I was given a
pair of dark glasses to wear
outdoors. They weren't what
I'd call fashionable either, but
they certainly did the job
they were designed to do. We
arrived home well before
10:30 a.m. The instructions
for the rest of the day in-
cluded wearing the patch,
no reading, no computer,
(watching TV was OK) no
bending, lifting or straining.
Other than being bored by
the lack of things to do, I felt,
fine; no pain at all. I recalled
how, in my working days, I
would have paid money to
have such a "down" day.
Timing is everything, isn't
it?

Recovery
Mine was only one of
about 14 cataract surgeries
Dr. Stephenson did that
Tuesday. She operates week-
ly at St. Andrews and sees
those patients at her office
the following day. I opted
not to drive myself Wednes-
day as the patch was still in
place and I truly felt like a
character out of Star Wars!
Wearing the dark glasses
helped but when I walked in
the office and removed
them, I had to laugh at the
row of identical patches that
greeted me. Even though we
didn't know one another,
it was quite obvious we all
had something in common.
With the patch removed
and the eye cleansed, my
surroundings turned into a
virtual kaleidoscope of color,
each vying to be the bright-
est. The eye remains greatly
dilated for several days fol-
lowing surgery, which ac-
counts for this phenomenon.
Wearing those "cataract"


sunglasses outdoors helps to
dissipate the light overload.
Actually, you feel as if the
world has taken on a brand
new look. The eye patch had
to be worn overnight for the
next three nights, but was
then discarded. Eye drops
four times a day became part
of the daily routine.
The surgery on my right
eye took place the following
week. As the old adage goes
- "What a difference a day
(week) makes." Knowing
what to expect certainly
lessens the anxiety. All went
well, only now I had to
remember to put drops in
both eyes four times a day.
The drops continue for a
number of weeks but eventu-
ally taper off as the healing
process progresses. Cataract
surgery doesn't promise 20-
20 vision as some people
think; I will eventually get a
prescription for new reading
glasses. My vision, however,
has improved immensely, to
the point that I can now see


every wrinkle and imperfec-
tion in what I once thought
was a much more youthful
face. Everything seems to
have a downside, doesn't it?
If you haven't been diag-
nosed with cataracts yet,
don't get smug. The prob-
ability of your getting them
is fairly high. According to a
report by the Mayo Clinic, if
you are 65 or older there is a
50 percent chance you'll have
them. Folks older than 75
have a 70 percent probabil-
ity of having cataracts signi-
ficant enough to impair their
vision. But, hey, the good
news is, they can be cured.
Dr. Stephenson's expertise
and the personal attention
she gives to each of her
patients made my close en-
counter with cataract surgery
an "eye opening" experience.
Thanks to her, her staff and
the volunteers and staff at St.
Andrews, I can truthfully say
to those who find you need
cataract surgery -- 'It's-,ell
wofththe effortt"

Tulane students visit Florida House to seek ways to rebuild New Orleans


STAFF REPORT

Twelve graduate students
and a professor from New
Orleans recently toured the
Florida House Learning
Center, Sarasota County's
environmental model home
and landscape. Dr. Charles
Reith, Professor of Environ-
mental Management at
' Tulane University, and the


students, from Tulane and
the Payson Institute for
Applied Development and
Technology Transfer, traveled
to Sarasota County to learn
about the ways it builds
and encourages sustainable
homes, yards and communi-
ties.
With a climate and vul-
nerability to storms that is
similar to Sarasota County's,

ty. Unfortunately, the elderly
are often targets of crime, and
are therefore vulnerable. If
your loved one's neighbor-
hood is not safe, moving
them, be it to a home or a new
place, is a good idea. Also, if
your loved one's home
requires upkeep that they are
not able to physically do any-
more, it could indicate they're
not safe living alone.
Support systems. No one
should live in isolation, espe-
cially the elderly. If your loved
one has a strong support sys-
tem of family and friends that
he regularly interacts with,
that could be a sign that he's
capable of continuing to live
independently. While those
friends and family should
contact your loved one regu-
larly and stop in to help out
whenever possible, if your
loved one is maintaining an
active social life he could be
all right staying where he is.
Finances. Finances often


play a significant role in what
to do with an elderly loved
one. If your loved one is capa-
ble of living on what he has
and isn't exhibiting any sign iL-
icant problems such as for-
getting to pay bills or regular-
ly paying them late, finance
concerns should provide no
reason to move him.
However, if your loved one
cannot live on his current
income or might have prob-
lems doing so down the road,
consider your options. One
thing to note is that nursing
home prices are high, so con-
suiting a financial advisor to
help you is a good road to
take.
While these areas are a
good place to start, they
should not dictate what you
do nor should you ignore
other possible areas of con-
cern.
To learn more about help-
ing the elderly, visit the AARP
Web site at aarp.org.

"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) SUNDAY
