Among the changes
made to Sarasota
County's hurricane
preparation efforts is a
plan to use transit and
school buses for
evacuations.

BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Improvements can always
be made, and that's especially
true in emergency manage-
ment when there are disasters
such as hurricanes Charley
and Kaiina to learn from.
Sarasota County held a
media dayWednesday as part
of its efforts to kick off a pub-
lic awareness campaign on
the eve of the official start of
hurricane season.
County Emergency Man-
agement Chief Ed McCrane
reiterated his
warning that
people need
to be pre-
pared to be
self-sufficient
for at least 72
hours.
In a video
statement,
McCrane County Ad-
ministrator
Jim Ley said each resident
also needs to have a personal
and family plan that deals
with supplies, evacuation and
personal safety.
He said no one will ride in
on a white horse to help
immediately after a storm,
and "quite frankly (the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency) seems to be riding in
on a nag."
McCrane said there is now
better coordination with
other agencies in the region to
help ensure that if a storm

Complaints about nude sunbathers and lewd behavior have resurfaced at Caspersen Beach as Venice and Sarasota County debate the merits of annexing
the land into city limits.


Lewd behavior at Caspersen?


A new public park and talk of annexation haven't shaken "I am sure you have made efforts cized. The city has offered to anne


the beach's reputation as a hang-out for exhibitionists.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
ASSISTANT EDITOR


One of the joys of a grandparent is
exposing a grandchildren to new
experiences.
Having that include scantily clad
and nude men while walking a pub-
lic beach is more than anyone would
bargain for.
After a long lull, another round of
complaints about Caspersen Beach
being host to exhibitionist behavior
and nudists has surfaced. A grandfa-
ther sent an e-mail to Venice City
Hall asking local police to do some-
thing about the behavior.


"While walking along the beach
at Caspersen Park with my grand-
daughter, we happened upon some
scantly clad older men, one was
nude, all obviously enjoying each
other's company," wrote the grand-
father, whose name is being with-
held by the Venice Gondolier Sun, in
the e-mail to city hall.
"There was no sexual acts ongo-
ing that I witnessed, however most
of them were obviously courting
each other with the most minimal
attire on. I ... must tell you it was
quite a surprise, quite embarrassing
to explain to my granddaughter
what was going on there.


to curtail this behavior in the past,
however I think the visitors and
other beachgoers do not need to be
exposed to nude men or others who
were obviously looking for a part-
ner."
Politics
But the city can't take action.
Caspersen Beach is outside of city
limits and law enforcement is the
responsibility of the Sarasota
County Sheriffs Office.
With only one way in to the
beach, a deputy must drive 5 miles
out of his or her way, through city
jurisdiction, just to reach the park.
Both city and county government
officials struggle with what to do as
the situation has become politi-


the land so Venice Police Depart-
ment can patrol it, and run utility
lines to serve the county park, which
requires water and sewage lines in
order to comply with funding grants.
Sarasota County is hesitating
because it fears strings are. attached
to the annexation offer, and that the
city would use this as an opening to
develop parts of Caspersen and leap
across the water to annex parts of
South Venice.
The grandfather just wants to
walk his granddaughter along the
beach and doesn't care about politi-
cal implications.

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
ELIZABETH BRYANT


They are everywhere.
They are on the road. They
are in your car. They are in
your hair. There is one crawl-
ing on your arm.
They are lovebugs, and we
are right in the middle of one
of their two annual seasons.
They have no qualms
about public displays of affec-
tion. Floating in the air like
snow, the lovebugs are every-
where. Swarms of them litter
the freeway. It seems like the
lovebugs are multiplying like
rabbits.
Anyone who lives in Flor-
ida knows what lovebugs are.
According to University of
Florida IFAS Extension, love-
bugs are small, black flies
with red thoraxes. Males are
the smaller of the two, reach-
ing 1/4 inch, and females are

1/3 inch in length.
These flies are members of
the family Bibionidae and are
known as March flies. They
are not like the filth flies that
regurgitate.
The annoyingly cute flies
are attached to each other
during their mating season,
which happens twice a year,
in May.and September, last-
ing four to five weeks at a
time.
Between May and Sep-
tember and September to
May, the lovebugs have a lar-
val stage, when they are not
seen flying through the air.
The lovebug flights begin
when the female lovebug is
ready to mate and emerges.
The average female lives
about two-three days. The
female will mate, lay her eggs
in the grass and die.
Lovebugs take several
months to mature to the

Texas and Louisiana, and
eventually to Florida.
Urban legend has it that
lovebugs were introduced to
Florida to help fend off the
mosquito population. Dr.
Fred Santana, entomologist
for Sarasota County, dispels
this myth.
"Lovebugs do not have
chewing mouth parts," said
Santana. Therefore, lovebugs
are physiologically incapable
of eating mosquitoes.
Florida's humid, sunny
environment is perfect for the
love bug. They love moist
areas and tend to congregate
in swampy places, making
Florida's major roads, with
their major swales, a haven
for lovebugs.

The Venice Army Air Base main entrance gate is pictured
in this 1940 photo before base construction had started.
The original entrance was located at the intersection of
Rialto and San Marco Drive. Construction of the base
began in June 1942 in the area bounded by U.S. 41 on the
east, San Marco Drive on the north, the Gulf of Mexico on
the west and Lemon Bay on the south comprising 1,699
acres. The original Army personnel were the 37th Service
Squadron of the 27th Service Group.

Condemnation of

Caspersen Beach ordered

From the May 15,1975, Venice Gondolier Sun


STAFF REPORT

The Sarasota County
Commission has voted 4-1
to proceed with ,eminent
domain to acquire the
Caspersen Beach property. -
In a surprise move' Tes-
day, the commission ordered
County Attorney Richard
Nelson to proceed as quickly
as possible if the Caspersen
family trust cannot come to
an immediate settlement.
Finn M.W. Caspersen of
Morristown, N.J., met with
Nelson la k. to negoti-
ate a ser.nt. W is to
meet with Nelson again later
this month for a second
round of talks.
But Nelson informed the
commission he "thought" a


meeting was planned and
asked that he be given per-
mission to start the legal
machinery moving for emi-
nent domain proceedings.
The bone of contention
lies with the widely varying
appraised values of the 113
acres just south of Venice.
The county has received
two appraisals, one for $1.73
million and the second for
$3.35 million. The Caspersens
have another set of figures
ranging from $3.5 million to
$5.7 million for the same
,,property.
County Propert praise
John Mikos puts tit taxable
value at $4.4 million.
By law, the county can
pay the Caspersens as much
as 10 percent above the gov-

emment's highest appraisal.
Funding for the county pur-
chase was approved by vot-
ers in a $7.75 million bond
issue May 1973. The issue
provided for the purchase of
two parcels of the Arvid
property.
Both of those parcels were
purchased for the full 10 per-
cent over county appraisal.,
Nelson has offered the
Caspersens only the lowest
appraised value. In a letter to
the family trust, Nelson said
he would proceed with emi-
nent domain unless they
accept the low offer.
Commission Chairman
Larry Rhodes voted against
eminent domain, saying .he
disliked public condemna-
tion of private lands.
Commissioners William
Muirhead and John Saba said


*STRONG TIDE
a-A.M. p- P.M.


they had no way of knowing
which appraisals were proper
for the property and should
let the eminent domain pro-
ceedings settle the question.
Under eminent domain
the county can take the land
after a jury of,area residents
determines the fair value of
the property. The appraised
values would be entered into
the case as evidence.
"We are reluctant to advise
utilization of the highest ($3.3
million) appraisal," Nelson
said.
The higher figure, with,
the added 10 percent, would
amount to $3.9 million or
S100.000 less than the figure
requested by(,eC.4spersens.-
The commission rejected the
higher figure.

LOVEBUG from Page A


lovebugs love sunlight and
cars. The two together form a
chemical that is almost like a
pheromone for lovebugs.
Lovebugs are attracted to
.the heat of the radiator on a
car, which can cause prob-
lems. Lovebugs, considering
their size, often get caught in
the radiators of cars, over-
heating them.
If you haven't noticed the
swarms of lovebugs in the air,
you surely have noticed the
lovebug massacre on your
car's front bumper. On many


bumpers, it looks as though
the lovebugs have re-enacted
a civil war battle. In fact,
Kevin Pierce of the Florida
Environment Web site, jokes
the best natural predator of
the love bug is the car.
However, if you were to use
your car as a way to extin-
guish the love bug problem,
the car's finish might pay the
price. If left too long on a fin-
ish that hasn't been waxed
recently, the splattered bug
remains might do some dam-
age.


Santana said, "Their com-
position is acidic, which can
ruin your paint job."
And, a lot of elbow grease
will be needed to get them off.
However, some sources say
that a light veneer of baby oil
will help release the bugs
from the car.
Lovebugs oncars can also
be dangerous to motorists.
When they splatter, they leave
a healthy dose of fatty
remains on the windshield,
impairing the vision of dri-
vers. It is important to make


sure' to keep the windshield
clean, as wipers are often
ineffective, and can even
make the mess worse.
Lovebugs often enter cars
while motorists are driving,
which can also disturb and
distract the driver.
A whole lot of love
Lovebugs are not danger-
ous, outside of the problems
they can cause to motorists.
They are not known to bite or
sting, nor are they venomous.
They are simply a nuisance,


and this year, it seems as
though they are a larger prob-
lem than normal.
According to Santana,
"There are a lot more love-
bugs right now than I can ever
recall. There is an explosive
emergence."
When asked why there are
so many this year, Santana
can only guess: "Breeding
conditions for this season's
brood must have been per-
fect."
The best way to avoid the
lovebugs is to be out when
they are not. They fly around
mostly between 10 a.m. and 4
p.m., making this the time


when the swarms are the
most dense. Usually, love bug
flights are only out when tem-
peratures above 68 degrees E
At night, lovebugs are resting
on ground vegetation.
If you can't adjust your
schedule, try driving slower or
avoiding the freeway so fewer
bugs will splatter on your
windshield.
Otherwise, lovebugs are
here to stay, at least until they
go to their larval stage, only to
return in September.

Risk is high for another major landfalling storm


Forecasters name the East Coast and Florida
Peninsula as likely targets in the 2006 season,


which started Thursday.

BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

The East Coast of the
United States and Florida
peninsula are almost twice as
Likely to be hit by a major hur-
ricane this year as are the bat-
tered communities along the
Texas and Louisiana coasts,
forecasters at Colorado State
University said Wednesday.
"The odds of a major hur-
ricane making landfall along
the East Coast are more than
twice the climatological aver-
age value this year," William
Gray and Phil Klotzbach an-,
nounced.
"Landfall probabilities for
the East Coast are quite high,"
because of favorable steering
currents and other weather
patterns that seem to be set-
ting up another potentially
dangerous hurricane season.
The East Coast includ-
ing Southwest Florida has
a 69-percent chance of being
hit by a major hurricane, one
classified as Category 3 or
higher on the Saffir-Simpson
scale of intensity, packing
winds of at least 111 mph, the
team announced. The aver-
age is 31 percent.
Gulf Coast communities
from the Florida panhandle
to Brownsville, Texas, have a
38-percent chance of being
hit, the team said. The aver-
age is 30 percent. Steering
current parameters for the
Gulf Coast are mixed, keeping
the probabilities low for the
Panhandle and westward.


Almost 50-50
With an announced fore-
cast of up to five major hurri-
canes forming in the Atlantic
this season, Gray and
Klotzbach said there was an
,..32-pecent chance that at
'Jeast Bnrie of tem'iwi-fi ifflie


United States. The average is
about 52 percent.
Klotzbach said that with so
many storms forecast and the
expected weather patterns as
the hurricane season pro-
gresses, there is little doubt
the risk is high.
The team also offers a ie-
gional and county-by-county
breakdown of the risks.
For the region, which runs
from Tampa Bay to Collier
County, the team reports a
49-percent chance of a nam-
ed storm striking (normal is
21.2 percent), and a 10.5-per-
cent chance of a major hurri-
cane making landfall (normal
is 3.7 percent).
For Sarasota County, the
team calls for a 5.3-percent
chance of some sort of storm
and a 0.3 percent chance of a
major storm.
For Charlotte County, the
team calls for a 2.5-percent
chance of a landfall of any
kind, and a 0.1-percent
chance of a major storm.
For both counties, the
numbers from Gray's team
are similar to ones released
before the 2004 and 2005 hur-
ricane season.
Always a possibility
Seasonal forecasts are
based on statistical schemes
and could be very wrong,
Gray advised.
"These forecasts do not
specifically predict where
within the Atlantic basin
these storms will strike,"
Klotzbach said. "The proba-
bility of landfall for any one
location along the coast is
very low and reflects the fact
that, in any one season, most
U.S. coastal areas will not feel
the effects of a hurricane no
matter how active the indi-
vidual season is." e, S eij v
.He addd-idthdtt 'a l.

tion items ended Thursday, the first day of the hurricane season.


fall probability does not
ensure that hurricanes will
not come ashore.
"Regardless of how active
the 2006 hurricane season is,
a finite probability always


exists that one or more hurri-
canes may strike along the
-U.S. coastline or in the
Caribbean and do much
damage." hli concluded.

No surprises in Gray's forecast for 2006


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER


When William Gray and
Phil Klotzbach speak, people
listen.
When they keep their hur-
ricane forecast consistent,
people also breathe a sigh of
relief.
It is too soon to exhale yet,
,but the Colorado State
University forecasters held
steady for the third 2006 hur-
ricane season forecast in a
row Wednesday when they
called for 17 named storms,
nine hurricanes and five
intense hurricanes (Category
3 or greater with winds in
excess of 110 mph).
The announcement comes
in time for the official start of
the 2006 hurricane season,
which runs until Nov. 30.
"We continue to foresee
another very active Atlantic
basin tropical cyclone season
in 2006," the team announc-
ed.
The Colorado State fore-
cast fell roughly in line with
other predictions for the hur-
ricane season. The National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration said last week
it expected 13-16 tropical
storms, with eight-10 hurri-
canes and four-six major hur-
ricanes.
Gray's forecast, and those
of other forecasters, were off
the mark last year, which saw
a record-shattering 28 storms,
including 15 hurricanes. Sev-
en of last year's hurricanes

H TEAM


were major storms of Cate-
gory 3 or higher on the Saffir-
Simpson scale of intensity.
Those hurricanes included
Katrina, the costliest natural
disaster in U.S. history. It
killed about 1,400 people and
caused more than $75 billion
in damage when it burst the
levees in New Orleans,
swamping the city, and rav-
aged the Mississippi and
Alabama coastlines.
Don't blame warming
Klotzbach said the fore-
cast, which is nearly double
the average for the past 100
years, is based on a variety of
factors, such as sea-surface
temperatures, prevailing
winds and past activity.
He said it would have been
hard to increase the forecast-
ed storms for the season,
because it, is impossible to
know in May what conditions
will be like at the height of the
season in August, September
and October.
"In 2004, the season was
late getting started and had
six weeks of incredible activi-
ty, and then it just shut off,"
Klotzbach sAid. "In 2005, it
started busy and stayed that
way into December. There are
too many variables with this
to ever forecast 28 storms, or
even 20, in a season."
The forecast team once
again rejected the idea that
the increased activity is
because of global warming
and not just part of a natural,
20-40-year, multi-decadal

Another glowing evaluation for MCC's Pappas


President Sarah Pappas continues to receive high

marks for innovations and excellence at Manatee

Community College.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Manatee Community Col-
lege president Dr. Sarah H.
Pappas received rave reviews
for her performance over the
past year.
All nine trustees rated her
"outstanding" on a state-
sponsored evaluation.
MCC's board of trustees
announced the evaluation
results at its May 18 meeting.
Trustees also unanimously
approved a two-year exten-
sion of Pappas' contract,
through June 30, 2008, in-
cluding a $16,000 raise for
each of the next two years.
Pappas' current salary is
$188,000. That will go up to
$204,000 for the 2006-07
school year, and then to
$220,000 for the 2007-08
school year.
Rip duPont, chair of the
board, said in making its deci-
sion the board relied on a
document that showed


MCC's president's salary was
historically below the mid-
point salary range of all com-
munity college presidents in
Florida.
It was the trustee's intent to
bring Pappas' salary up to the
median level of her peers
before she thought about
leaving, duPont said.
Even with the raise, "she
probably isn't at the median
level yet, since the salary data
trustees based their decision
on was a year old," duPont
said.
Seven trustees rated Pap-
pas' performance over the
past year as outstanding on
all 15 criteria in the state eval-
uation tool. Two rated Pappas
outstanding on most criteria,
and superior in the remain-
der, according to duPont.

First-class
DuPont praised Pappas for
her leadership in "pulling
together a first-class faculty,"
and for showing results.


"MCC has one of the high-
est graduation rates of any
community college," he said.
"We're very proud of the high
number of students who go
on to finish four-year de-
grees."
He also cited MCC's high-
er-than-average grade-point
average com-
pared to other
B Florida com-
munity col-
S leges as proof
si .Pappas is
delivering the
goods.
"That goes
back to hav-
Pappas ing first-class
faculty."
He also mentioned the
tremendous job Pappas has
done representing MCC out
in the community."
"She is out almost every
night," he said. "She puts in
very long days."
He said trustees are also
happy that campus facilities
are being upgraded in Bra-
denton and Venice.
"She has done a fine job of
changing what I think was a
drab appearance" to first-


class college campuses with
upgraded buildings.
"The goal is to improve
facilities at both campuses,"
Pappas said. "They're going to
look beautiful."
Pappas said the Venice
campus will eventually in-
clude a 30-foot-high foun-
tain, and a lot more shade
trees in the courtyard area.
"Right now (when it's hot)
all you want to do is get inside
under air conditioning. After
the improvements, the cam-
pus will be much more invit-
ing," she said.

Great stats
Pappas chalked up the
positive evaluation to a recent
high accreditation ranking
from the Southern Associ-
ation of Colleges and Schools.
"We passed that with flying
colors," Pappas said. "SACS
told the board MCC really
had some unique things,
including, great partnerships
and staff relations."
MCC has gained notoriety
for its partnerships with high-
school-level students. It
recently renewed agreements
with the Sarasota County


School District and private
schools for its dual-enroll-
ment acceleration and en-
richment programs.
MCC's 2+2 partnership
with the University of South
Florida Sarasota-Manatee
helps streamline the transfer
process for students who go
to take upper classwork at
USF Sarasota-Manatee.
On 14 of 16 state account-
ability measures MCC is "way
above" the other 27 Florida
community colleges, Pappas
noted.
By any number of external
measures of quality, "MCC is
the best, if not one of the
best" community colleges in
Florida, she said.
Pappas said she's also
proud of the school's inde-
pendent foundation, which
provides scholarships to stu-
dents.
"We rely on the MCC
Foundation to really make a
difference."
The foundation raises
about $2 million annually off
the'interest on its $39 million
endowment. The size of its
endowment places MCC in
the top 2 percent of commu-


nity colleges nationwide,
according to Pappas.

Boost online, advisors
What's next on Pappas' to
do list? Restructuring MCC's
distance-learning offerings,
and improving its advisor/
counseling services.
MCC has 3,000 students
who've taken one or more
online classes, but the drop-
out rate is higher for than live
courses.
That concerns Pappas. She
said faculty members are
leading a project to research
the current structure of its
classes in order to learn how
to build in higher retention
rates.
"That group of students is
doing nothing but growing,"
Pappas said. "That is not go-
ing to go away. Distance
learning is part of the future."
Pappas also wants to im-
prove counseling services at
MCC.
."Student evaluations show
that's one area they say we
need to improve. Students
have asked why in January

STORMS from Page 1 A
approaches and an evacua-
tion is ordered, a process will
be in place to avoid everyone
using the same routes.
Bus routes
A county team met with
FEMA representatives Tues-
day to learn what will happen
in the event of a storm, such
as reimbursements for indi-
viduals and public assistance.
FEMA has promised to
send an observer to the coun-
ty in the event a storm threat-
ens. Previously, any contact
was through the state emer-
gency management offices.
McCrane said there is
going to be an expanded role


for public buses SCAT and
school district vehicles that
will pick up people who have
signed up to be taken out of
harm's way. The SCAT buses
will focus on existing routes,
while the school buses could
be used for individual pick-
ups in neighborhoods where
bus service is limited.
This is in response to the
evacuation problems that
occurred ahead of hurricanes
Katrina and Rita last year.
Evacuation zones
Another new item this year
is the way the, county desig-
nates hurricane evacuation
zones.
The map used to follow
hurricane category surge


zones of 1, 2, 3 and 4/5. But,
McCrane said people were
confused when they were
asked to evacuate from a
zone higher than the antici-
pated force of the hurricane
at landfall.
The main reason for this is
that the general rule of thumb
for evacuations and storm
preparation is to plan for a
category storm higher than
forecast. Charley dramatically
showed how quickly a storm
can change intensity.
The county has also updat-
ed the Web site (scgov.net) to
be user-friendly and allow
people to type in their
address and learn what evac-
uation zone they live in and
where the nearest open shel-


ter is.
McCrane also listed some
of the other things he said
had improved:
The county adopted the
National Incident Emergency
Management System -
which guides the way first
responders deal with disas-
ters.
A recovery chief was
hired to handle the aftermath
of a hurricane.
A liaison was added to
help business and industry
with resources after a stomnn.
The school board added
back-up generators to three
schools that will serve as spe-
cial-needs shelters.

LEWD from Page 1 A


behalf of the other parents,
grandparents who take their
kids out to the beach to not be
faced with this," he wrote to
city hall. "If there is anything
you could do to disallow and
discourage this behavior it
would be appreciated."
Reputation
Caspersen Beach has had
the reputation for nude sun-
bathing and romantic en-
counters between men for at
least a decade, according to
city spokeswoman Pam John-
son. She does not know when
or how it started, but every
several months or so, a new
set of complaints comes in.
And every now and then,
the sheriff's office announces
a set of arrests from its latest
sting operation.
City Manager Marty Black
said the complaints tend to
run in cycles.
He believes there are more
instances than are reported.
Many people either are too
embarrassed to report them
or, like the latest e-mail, view
them as "embarrassing" in-
stead 'of "illegal."
"We've continued to re-
ceive complaints, and that e-
mail is just the latest exam-


ple," Black said.
Complaints to the sheriff's
office have been nearly non-
existent, according to Lt.
Chuck Lesaltato, the sheriff's
public information officer. A
quick review of records only
revealed one instance, back
in March, when there was a
pair of nude sunbathers.
The area has not been a
problem spot for several
years, he said. Caspersen
Beach was listed on several
Web sites back then as a
"meeting place" for men,
which led to many of the
problems, Lesaltato said.
"But summer's coming. I
hope it doesn't pick up," Les-
altato said. "It's been relative-
ly quiet down there for sever-
al years."
Naturists
The spot continues to be
listed on Web sites for nude
sunbathers, who emphasize
their activity is not sexual and
unrelated to accusations of
"lewd behavior" at Caspersen.
The Suncoast Naturists,
based in Sarasota, have advo-
cated for a nudist area at
Caspersen Beach since May
2001, according to its Web
site, suncoastnaturists.org. It


even has a section dedicated
to Caspersen Beach that in-
cludes driving directions.
According to the group's
February meeting minutes,
Caspersen Beach remains its
top choice, but is lobbying
with the South Venice Civic
Association for a spot on one
of its beaches.
"Our goal is to provide
clothing-optional social op-
portunities where no one
feels threatened by sexual
overtones," according to the
Web site.
"We continue to demon-
strate our interest in obtain-
ing a legally designated sec-
tion of that (Caspersen)
beach park for clothing-op-
tional use. As of this date the'
County has not granted per-.
mission for clothing-optional
use, but we are continuing to
strive for that goal," the site
goes on to state.
History
Regardless of a person's
political opinion on nude
sunbathing, the allegations of
sexual behavior going on in
remote areas of the beach
and park continue. Crack-
downs using both police and
sheriff's deputies were con-


ducted in 2000, 2001 and
2002.
A mutual-aid agreement
between the Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office and Venice
Police Department was spe-
cifically designed to address
the problem. The agreement,
signed July 11, 2001, stated
that the VPD could cross
jurisdictional lines into the
unincorporated area and
patrol the popular recreation
spot.
But that agreement has
since expired.
Sarasota County owns and
operates Caspersen Beach
Park. It doesn't want to annex
into city limits because that
grants the city authority to
mandate park rules de-
spite the park still being own-
ed by the county.
There's also the fear the
city will use annexationto de-
velop neighboring land and
extend into South Venice.
What to do?
The city manager and
council have offered to sign
an agreement promising to
not annex South Venice and
to allow the county to estab-
lish its own park rules. County
staff continue to evaluate the


proposal, all in an effort to
bring water and sewage lines
to Caspersen Beach Park.
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub had not
heard of the latest complaints.
She did an informal study of
criminal complaints at
Caspersen Beach for the April
joint meeting of city council
and county commissioners.
Her numbers showed
complaints have steadily
dropped the past three years.
If the problem is resurfacing,
perhaps the solution is draft-
ing a new joint law enforce-


ment agreement like the one
from 2001, she said.
"Frankly, if this was a com-
,mon occurrence, you would
think someone would've re-
ported it," Staub said. "The
thing is, do you do annexa-
tion because of a thing like
this, or do you revisit the joint
(law enforcement) agree-
ment?"

need to make sure all advisors

One immediate change is
to improve MCC's student
orientation process.
Pappas said the college will
move from huge orientation
sessions that accommodate
hundreds to smaller groups of
30 so students can ask more


questions.
Overall, Pappas. said she

Gun scare shoots holes in school security


A gun scare atVenice High School on May
23, the last day of school, appears to
have been nothing more than a stu-
dent's misperception of an item in a man's
pocket.
The Venice Police Department responded
promptly and secured the campus as well as
adjacent Venice Elementary School. School
staffs followed their Code Red procedures
and the potential threat was resolved without
incident.
All's well that ends well, right? Not in this
case.
School district law enforcement officials
determined the person reported to have the
possible weapon was a deliveryman. But
that's all they know.
"The delivery man dropped his load and
was already gone by the time the lockdown


took place," said Larry, Leon, police chief for
the Sarasota County School District. "We
don't know where that guy is and don't have
the manpower to try to find him."
That comment points out a disturbing gap
in school security.
Screening technology known as Raptor is
used on county school campuses to ensure
that none of the people students come in
contact with are dangerous, whether as a sex-
ual predator or other criminal. People work-
ing on campus, as employees of the district
or otherwise, and visitors are to check in at
the office and be run through a database
designed to alert school officials to people
who pose a risk.
The deliveryman suspected of being the
cause of the report of a gun on campus
should be in that system, whether from mak-


ing prior deliveries or signing in that day. But
there apparently is no record of him at the
school.
If our school campuses are to be secure,
then no one- no one should be able to go
on them without leaving some trace of his
presence from which he can be identified.
That might be a bit unrealistic for a school
as large as VHS 70-plus acres but cer-
tainly there should be a record of a delivery
made on the last day of school. How many
could there have been that day?
Raptor is cutting-edge technology, but like
any tool it's only as effective as the people who
use it. If someone seeking access to a campus
isn't forced to go through the system, then there
is no record of him or her, and no background
check is done a double problem.
Now, we realize that our schools are pretty


safe places to begin with, and the reason noth-
ing happened in this incident is because the
deliveryman had no evil plan, not because he
was prevented from carrying one out
We also know that no system is perfect.
Raptor is designed to filter out people who
are known risks, but it's worthless against
people who have no record to be checked for.
And it can't secure a school's boundaries -
people have to do that.
Still, there should be a way to make sure
everyone not an employee or a student who
goes on a school campus during school
hours checks in and is run through Raptor.
That wouldn't make school security airtight,
but it would be a definite improvement.
School is out for another two months -
plenty of time to make things right for the
next school year.


Hurray for



Hollywood

MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


Recently I watched a very
good movie called "The
STerminal." Tom Hanks plays a
non-English speaking Bulgar-
ian who, having just arrived in
NewYork, runs into a bureau-
cratic brick wall that prevents
him from leaving the termi-
nal.
Throughout the film I kept
thinking that the guy in
charge of airport operations,
'brilliantly portrayed by Stan-
ley Tucci, is the kind of person
we need at all of our borders.
But that's another subject and
one I will leave to everyone
else for now.
The fascinatingly hilarious
part of this whole movie is the
ingenuity Hanks' character
shows in coping with his
months'-long residence at
Gate 67. Without ever leaving
the terminal, this man learns
to speak English; gets a job in
the airport earning $21 per
hour; has a romance with the
beautiful Catherine Zeta-
Jones, playing a flight atten-
dant; and becomes the dar-
ling of all the staff and shop-
keepers in the terminal. Too
me, it was better than
"Rocky."
If there was a liberal politi-
cal message in this movie
directed by Steven Spielberg,
which I had been led to
believe by some of the
reviews, I didn't get it. In fact, I
looked upon it as a brilliant
commentary on how one
enterprising individual can
be successful by working
within and melding into a
system.
Tom Hanks is a gifted
actor, and I can't think of any-
one else who could have


pulled the role off in the way
in which he did.
"The DaVinci Code," Tom
Hanks' latest flick and the one
that is generating so much
controversy, is not a movie I
would rush out to see not
because I'm offended but
because I think it sounds dull,
which is not to say that my
curiosity will not lead me to
rent the DVD when it comes
out.
The.beauty of being an
American citizen is that we
can put out any theory we
wish, even if it's done just for
the pure sensationalism of it.
If someone wants to say that
Jesus Christ was married and
had children and was cruci-
fied so as not to have to pay
child support, he has that
right. Who can charge him
with libel?
Well, this was not intended
to be a column about Tom
Hanks. It just happened that
way. You see, I am still smart-
ing over the last Academy
Awards telecast and the
Sarasota Film Festival.
First of all, the Academy
Awards was like watching
paint dry, only not as colorful.
I wish these modern film
makers would remember that
comment by the late movie
producer, Sam Goldwyn: "If
you want to send a message,
callWestern Union."
Smart Alec Baldwin bashes
the Republican administra-
tion and as a side note thanks
the academy for his award. At
the Sarasota Film Festival,
Director Robert Altman bash-
es our Republican
Congresswoman Katherine
Harris and pauses to thank
the festival for awarding him
a lifetime film achievements.
Mr. Altman, you do not
give the gong to our own
Southern belle in our town.
Do you hear me?
Will someone please get
the hook?

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Somebody has to help the kids


Editor:
I just read the article by Greg Giles about the South County
Young Adults Center closing last week. It is a sin that Gulf Coast
Foundation has taken no interest in this important organiza-
tion, nor for that matter it seems has Venice and surrounding
communities in general.
I have lived in Venice six years now, and based on what I've
seen and read this area simply has no interest in young people.
Let someone else do it. The older people are like, "Gee, I
already spent my life raising a family, busying around, and now
I just want it to be quiet without kids and their problems." Very
selfish.
It's no wonder so many capable older people are lonely.
Helping kids and being around kids helps keep you young and
a more interesting person to boot.
If I had lots of money, much of it would go to children's orga-
nizations. I just started Social Security and Medicare. So I guess
I'm a young, interesting old person. Hopefully.

Web site for
insurance gripes
Editor:
If you are as upset as I
about the home insurance in
the state of Florida, then we
need to try to do something
about it.
There is a Web site (storm-
ingmad.org) that you can visit
and make your concerns
known. You also can write
your legislative leader.
My homeowners insur-
ance tripled this year. For
those of you who don't know,
many more policies will be
canceled in July.

Loss of sign a bad sign
Editor:
I enjoy the use of the fit-
ness trail in Wellfield Park. I
was angered recently to find
that one of the signs guiding
the use of the trail the one


at Station 8, on Curry Creek -
had been torn out and
removed in the preceding 48
hours, over the weekend.
It didn't take much
strength or brainpower to do
it. These station information-
al signs are lightly enough
planted that I think a deter-
mined 10-year-old could
have pulled it out.
What bothers me is the
mentality of self-centered-
ness that results in the Sara-
sota County infrastructure
that we have all paid for being
taken away from us. All of us
are literally robbed by such
malicious acts.
Douglas Cleminshaw
Venice
Figures don't lie,
but liars do figure
Editor:
Yes, the economy has cre-
ated 5.3 million jobs. We need
150,000 jobs per month for
the expanding labor market.


Clinton's economy created
20.4 million jobs.
Yes, $315.1 billion in rev-
enue sounds good, but the
federal government is going
into debt at the rate of $1.5
billion per day. More than 20
percent of the $8.4 trillion-
and-climbing national debt is
owned by China.
Clinton left a balanced
budget, first time in 40 years,
and a projected surplus of
$5.2 trillion. This would fave
wiped out the then national
debt.
Yes, the deficit dropped
$38 billion. Congress increas-
ed the debt ceiling to $9 tril-
lion. It has made provisions to
increase the debt ceiling to
$10 trillion next year.
The administration had
told us this war would cost
$60 billion and all other costs
would come from Iraq's oil.
The war has cost $240 billion
and climbing. Can it be this
administration lied?
Yes, the unemployment rate
has fallen to 4.76 percent. This
administration only counts
those workers on unem-
ployment insurance. When
your insurance runs out you
are no longer counted.
Figures don't lie, but liars do
figure.
Supply-side economics:
Reagan used it and the debt
went from $940 billion to $2.5
trillion. Bush started with a
debt of $5.2 trillion, and de-
creasing; it now is $8.4 trillion
and increasing.
Supply-side is a fancy
name for the economics of
John Maynard Keynes, and
that is economic suicide.

WMD beliefs
predate Bush
Editor:
A perfect example of tun-
nel vision is the inability to
realize President Bush could
not have fabricated the WMD
in Iraq when just about every-
one in the world believed
Saddam had them.
President Clinton, Mad-
eline Albright, Sandy Berger,
Sen. Daschle, Rep. Pelosi all
said so in 1998; Sens. Levin
and Bob Graham in 2001; Al
Gore, Sens. Ted Kennedy,
Robert Byrd, Jay Rockefeller,
Hillary Clinton and Rep.
Henry Waxman in 2002. John
Kerry wanted to disarm Sad-
dam as late as January 2003.
From U.S. government
translations of audiotapes
from top-level Iraqi meetings,
it was learned that in 1997
Iraq was keeping confidential
files away from UN teams and
removing any forbidden
equipment. Saddam's inner
circle entertained notions of
reviving the programs some-
day: "The factories will re-
main in our brains" was stat-
ed on the tape.
Many Democrats who con-
tinue to believe President Bush
lied may wish to have a presi-
dent in charge who would take
a chance, but I'm thankful our
president thought of our safety
first and foremost.
Where were you during the
Clinton years? Don't you
know about the first bombing
of the World Trade Center and
the bombing of the Cole? Our
U.S. sailors were on that ship.
Polls are for the Clinton
years, and poll answers de-
pend on how the question is

LET'EM HAVE IT! SHOULD VENICE RENEW ITS EFFORTS TO ANNEX

CASPERSEN BEACH? CALL US AT 207-111.

We don't need mail on Saturday


Save gas. I'm a little concerned about the cost of gasoline
these days. At least during the next six months to a year, maybe
it wouldn't be such a bad idea if the post office no longer deliv-
ered residential mail on Saturday. There never has been a need
for it in the last 25-30 years, and there's certainly no need for it
now with the additional expense of fuel. Think of the money
that could be saved just in five-day delivery for residential. Give
this some'serious thought; otherwise you're wasting money.


Goofballs. You want to
know if high gas prices have
affected our plans for the
summer. Yes, they have. I was
going up North. With the
price of gas, I'm not going to
go up North. I will drive my
car very little and give no
more money to those rich,
elite goofballs. Then you got a
lady or guy who wrote in
about Katherine Harris, how
it's ridiculous about the edito-
rial cartoon. They're trying to
say it's a Democratic paper.
Not a Democratic paper, not
by a long shot. She screwed
the votes up, screwed the
election up, she cheated, she
got the votes for Bush. If Gore
had got in there, he might not
have been as good or he
might have been better, but at
least I don't think the deficit
would be $8 trillion. So, this
person, whoever it was, had
no call for what they said.
Not complicated. The char-
ter term limits is a no-brainer.
I don't understand the confu-
sion. Nothing complicated
about this at all. It's sharp and
the rationale is sound.
Too much power? Mr. Ved-
der is usually very sharp and
accurate, but maybe the los-
ing of weight affects his think-
ing. In his April 30 column, he
said Darby Buick would now
complete the last link in the
west side of the Intracoastal
trail. Maybe he's reluctant to
say a negative against Mr.
Miller since the entire end of
the trail near 41 Business has
been .untouched due to the
building of the high-rises by
Mr. Miller. The ..beautiful
building at the end of thelraili'f
the restrooms and other facil-
ities stands there, unused, for
a couple of years. The trail-
head building is a big plus to
visitors to our city, but yet it
stands unused due to the fact
that the section there of Mr.
Miller's building has not been
completed. Let's give the pub-
lic the full use of this trail. No
individuals should be so pow-
erful as to cause a delay in use
of this building and this end
of the trail. Please, council,
how long did you stipulate
that this building could go on
before the trail had to be
completed?
Hoodwinked by Norris.
While the taxpayers of Sara-
sota County have been hood-
winked, so have the teachers
and the school employees. We
all worked very hard to pass
the referendum. Dr. Norris
said that we needed the
money in order to keep things
status quo. Let me tell you,
John Q. Public, things are not
status quo. There are major,
major cuts in our school sys-
tem, in our schools, in our
teaching' staff, in our classi-
fied staff. Why did we work so
hard for this referendum
when the school board is cut-
ting and cutting and cutting?
Someone needs to look into
this, and look into it now
before it gets any worse. Are
there cuts being done at the
Landings? I don't think so. Are
there cuts being done in the
administrative staff? I don't
think so. Our children are
going to suffer and this is
exactly what he told us would
not happen.
Gross! It makes me so
angry when visitors who
come to Caspersen Beach fill
the boardwalk ashtrays with
bottles, cans, diapers and dis-
carded food. It is so gross. Use
your heads. What do you
think barrels are for?
'Better conditions. I hear of
11 million immigrants in the
country from Mexico. The
numbers don't bring anything
and don't give you the scope.
But when I see that on TV
now, I wasn't prejudiced
against the immigrants and I
think we should welcome
them, but not illegally. And,
please don't fly the Mexican


flag in the United States. If
they love the country so
much in Mexico, why don't
they just go down to Mexico
.City and wave their flags there
and look for better conditions
in their own country? I think
we should just send them all
back and have them come in
with picture I.D.s, finger-
prints, pay the taxes and
they're welcome.
What a waste. A couple
quickies. Gulfcoast Boulevard
runs from U.S. 41 to the end
of Groveland over in the
Edgewood section. Too bad
the road couldn't be extended
all the way out to Pinebrook
to the new extension. That
would maybe keep people
from coming out on the by-
pass, going through the Edge-
wood section to hit Venice
Avenue. Number two is, city
of Venice just had a party at
the Venetian River Club club-
house for their people who
serve on different boards.
Sarasota County doesn't do
this and many other organi-
zations when you volun-
teer, you volunteer your time
and your resources. I find it
very interesting they would
have this there when the aver-
age citizen of the city of
Venice would never have the
opportunity. This has been
going on for about five years
now. It used to be at the yacht
club. I would say more than
half the city of Venice has
never been to the yacht club. I
find it very interesting that we
wasted this money when a
thank you or just a nice little
plaque would act as the same
Gesture. Final one is, I think,
Judge Moore would make a
good mayor and I hope he
runs. I also hope people don't
vote to change the city char-
ter. Leave it as it is.
Back to life. Congratu-
lations on that new, beautiful
color picture of Kim Cool in
the Our Town section. It's real-
ly an improved look over the
normal picture that we usual-
ly get of her. She really did
look kind of like a corpse in
the previous picture. It's a real
improvement and she looks
really good in that photo.
No wonder. It's no wonder
the Venice residents voted
down the school referendum.
Look at our schools' test
scores they keep going
down and down. Maybe it's
time for a new principal at
that school who can get those
scores back up. Good going,
high schools, but let's get
going, elementary schools.
Open up. Well, the traffic
light has been installed on the
Pinebrook Road extension.
That was supposed to be
what was holding up the
opening. Still no sign of our
road being finished. Please,
can't we have that road open
soon, especially before hurri-
cane season?
What happened? This is
from Disappointed. What
happened to the 776 corridor
plan? Overbrook Gardens still
has ugly fencing that looks
like a slum and Pennington
Place is building one house
on top of another with no
landscaping to conceal the
mess from State Road 776.
Let's make things better.
Stop whining! This is for
the few residents at Harbor
Lights who are against the
docks at Fisherman's Wharf:
Stop your whining. If you
don't like to see boats, you
shouldn't live on the Intra-
coastal Waterway. The major-
ity of the residents in the park
are for the docks.
Oh, Canada. I see where
President Bush is considering
using the National Guard to
keep people from crossing
the border. I realize that since
he has been president many
people have wanted to leave
their homeland to seek a land
that promises opportunity,


freedom from governmental
invasion of privacy and to live
in peace. Still, I think it is an
overreaction. After all, how
many Americans will really
want to live in Canada when
they realize how cold it gets?
Code Red. And I thought
that after Sept. 11 and Col-
umbine our schools were
supposed to be safer. The
.Gondolier Sun reports: 'As of
press time the district was
unable to ascertain the name
of the delivery person or the
delivery company, although
they believe he was delivering
supplies to the school. 'We
don't know where that guy is
and don't have the manpower
to try to find him,' Leon said."
I guess the check-in system
and the visitor passes are just
another make-work job for
someone. Typically the gov-
ernment is great at creating
records but not quite so good
at using them for their intend-
ed purpose. It seems the pur-
pose of "school security" is
not to prevent crime but to
only give the appearance of
security and to prosecute only
after a crime is committed. If
the spin on this story is sup-
posed to leave us with awarm
fuzzy feeling, it fails miser-
ably. Nothing happened be-
cause nothing was going to
happen, not because it was
prevented. It underscores the
reactive rather than proactive
attitude that prevails in gov-
ernment, which I for one had
hoped would change after
Sept. 11.
Where's Joe? Why is this
the second Friday in two
weeks that there's no Joe
Brower column? We miss him.
He makes more sense than
most of the others.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Joe will be

MCC, chambers put you in the know


With record low unem-
ployment rates in Southwest
Florida, businesses are strug-
gling to find people.
Many are using creative,
and sometimes costly, meth-
ods to recruit employees.
Signing bonuses, advertising
in out-of-area newspapers,
increasing wages these are
just a few ways businesses are
trying to meet their employ-
ment needs.
Manatee Community
College and local chambers of
commerce in Venice,
Englewood-Cape Haze and
North Port are partnering to
present a half-day Business
Enhancement Symposium
that will provide classes ad-
dressing some of these issues.
The symposium will cul-
minate with a luncheon pre-
sentation on another topic of
importance to business:
"Hurricane Preparedness for
Business and Home." The
keynote speaker is -Robert
Day (an MCC alumnus) from
Sarasota County Emergency
Management, whose exper-
tise is in business continuity.
Planning for disasters is the


key for survival of businesses.
What is new and different
about this symposium? It is
the culmination of frequent
discussions between the
chambers and MCC about
how to support local busi-
nesses and their challenges.
None of us can magically
produce people with the vari-
ous skills needed by individ-
ual businesses, but we can
provide training, programs
and opportunities that may
make their employees more
valuable, and we can discuss
strategies for recruitment,
and retention, of employees.
The classes are offered in
two strands: one for the own-
er/manager and one for key
support personnel.
The owner/manager strand
specifically addresses person-
nel challenges. "Recruiting
and retaining Hispanic em-
ployees," for example, will
give business owners or hu-
man resource personnel in-
sights into the culture of this
important population of
workers.
Another class will address
"hiring and retaining people
in areas with low unemploy-
ment." Once employees are
hired, what are strategies that
can be used to keep them?
What makes them loyal to an
employer? A third class is
specifically designed for hu-
man resources for small busi-
ness.
The second .strand offers
classes in practical, day-to-
day skill upgrades in using
Outlook and PowerPoint, and
designing sales flyers inWord.

ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS!

The 100-room hotel to re-
place the derelict former gas
station at 180 Tamiami Trail,
Nokomis, on the south side of
Albee Road, will be a Hilton
Homewood Suites, confirmed
Eric Collin, CEO ofFinergyLLC.
The company has success-
fully converted former condos
to a Hilton Homewood Suites
on Fruitville Road, Sarasota.
Finergy LLC unveiled
plans a few months ago for a
Mediterranean revival-design
property for the 4.17-acre
parcel and is talking to major
restaurant franchises for the
property fronting the trail.
"It is still too early to talk to
retailers for the new develop-
ment, which we are unlikely
to be able to start until per-
mitting is approved in about
12 months," said Collin.
At a recent community
meeting organized by Finergy"
to outline its ideas, the input
was excellent. His designers
are now slightly modifying
the design for submission for
rezoning, followed by the ap-
plication for permits, which
may take 10-12 months. The
hotel will face Albee Road.
"Customer demands today
are so much higher, so the
trend is to require kitchens
and high-speed Internet ser-
vices," said Steve Pileggi of
Finergy. A second structure,
with 15,000-square-feet of
retail stores, would be at-
tached to the northeast cor-
ner of the hotel facing U.S. 41.
On the north side of the
Albee Road junction Henry
Rodriquez of Casey Key has
announced plans to develop
the former Chevron station
and adjoining Nokomis Sep-
tic Tank property with a na-
tional restaurant on U.S. 41
and an exclusive condo motel
to the rear. Both develop-
ments will improve the re-
cently widened Albee Road
access to Casey Key and No-


komis Beach.
"This is going to enhance
and make Albee Road the
gatewayfto Nokornis Bieach,"
commented Rodriquez.
The six-lane widening of
U.S. 41 Tamiami Trail from
the Venice connector, State
Road 681, to Bird Bay on Ven-
ice Bypass has commercial
developers anticipating big
opportunities for Nokomis.
Shopping center to
expand
The third phase of Venice
Commons Shopping Center
on East Venice Avenue will be
five, 5,000-square-foot office
condos for doctors and other
professionals, located to the
rear of the new branch for
Sarasota Coastal Credit Un-
ion under construction at
1425 E. Venice Ave. An addi-
tional 8,400 square feet will be
built facing Pinebrook Road.
"There will be 10, 1,200-
square-foot units designed
for local folks," commented
George Trujillo, Primerica
Sales & Leasing manager, de-
velopers of the center. Cur-
rently there are no specific
tenants, but Trojillo said he is
talking to various entities.
Chamber's advice
leads to success
Nooks & Crannies of South
Venice is looking to expand.
"Since I joined the Venice
Area Chamber of Commerce a
few weeks ago, I have had so
much help," said Lizz Beyer,
who is acting on business
advice to completely change
her business strategy. Five
years ago she arrived in Venice
from Michigan and launched
her own cleaning company.
"Originally I did mostly
residential, but it has become
too hard physically," she said.
She has successfully intro-
duced her company to doc-
tors and business offices, and
the chamber is assisting with
advice on marketing.
She wants the business to
grow and is looking forward
to hiring as she takes on more
customers in the Venice area.
Nokomis improvements
continue
Construction that recently
began at the junction ofAlbee
Farm Road and Colonia Lane
is the start of the first of three
new water retention ponds


for Nokomis, confirmed John
Ask, president of the Nokomis
Area Civic Association:- .
Additional rbadworkrirAn
provements on Colonia Lane
from Nash Avenue to Albee
Farm Road to be completed
within 300 days by contractor
E.T. McKenzie of Bradenton
include sidewalks, bike lanes,
decorative streetlights and
other streetscape features.
A water transmission line
extending central water to
Nokomis neighborhoods east
of Tamiami Trail is part of that
project.
Golf course still unsold
"Venice East Golf Course is
not sold," said Frank Mack,
club president. "We have the
best rates in the area plus our
summer specials."
He confirmed three bid-
ders who earlier this year had
shown interest in acquiring
the course for $17 million,
had subsequently turned the
proposition down.
The board members are
currently working with their
attorney seeking bids from all
17 original companies that
had shown interest. Ac-
cording to Mack, any offer
accepted by the board will
then have to be approved by
members and the whole
process started again.
Closed to wait out con-
struction
Road work has forced the
closure of Anita's Restaurant
on Tamiami Trail for the
whole of June and July.
Located at 441 South Tami-
ami Trail, south of the Four
Bays Shopping Plaza, the rest-
aurant and surrounding busi-
nesses on the east side of the
trail are particularly affected
by the road work because the
crossover of lanes moves fast-
flowing traffic to the west side
of the road and there is no
center turn lane.
"Work from Anita's north
will probably not be complet-
ed for six to eight months,
and this could be delayed by
unforeseen problems en-
countered by the contractor,
rainy days and Sarasota
County water mains," said
Bob Taraska, project coordi-
;nator for consulting engi-
neers Greenhorne & Omara.

County adopts national emergency management system


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

It became abundantly
clear during the Sept. 11,
2001, terrorist attacks on
America that there needs to
be a better system of commu-
nication in place for first
responders.
This has been reinforced
by the series of hurricanes
that have caused confusion
and chaos among emergency
managers, not only on the


local level, but at the state and
federal levels as well.
"What was found (in previ-
ous disasters) was that multi-
ple agencies used different
systems," said Ed McCrane,
Sarasota County's emergency
management chief.
The National Incident
Management System was
developed to address the
problems in the system, and
Sarasota County has integrat-
ed the program into its emer-
gency response.


County commissioners
adopted the formal guide-
lines of the NIMS system at
their May 23 meeting.
This system provides a set
of processes, protocols and
procedures that all emer-
gency responders at every
level of government will use
in response to emergencies,
McCrane said.
Compliance and adoption
of the system means the
county will continue to quali-
fy for Homeland Security


Preparedness Funds, which
are used for training emer-
gency personnel.

In charge
McCrane said the county
has already undertaken the
command and control part of
the system, which means that
if the county needs. state or
federal help after a disaster,
the county's first responders
will be able to communicate
with the incoming help.
The program establishes


who is in charge of the disas-
ter response, typically a joint
command of the fire chief
and sheriff.
It also creates an All
Hazards incident response
system, which includes an
inventory of resources and
assets and ensures the con-
tinuation of the mutual aid
agreements the county now
has with surrounding com-
munities and with the state.
By the board approving the
guidelines, it must change the


Survey: coastal residents still unprepared for hurricanes


Florida does best, but
preparation. still lacking

BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Two years of unprecedent-
ed hurricane activity in the
Atlantic Basin have done little
to get people to prepare for a
storm, a poll released Tuesday
stated.
"Katrina was quite a na-
tional wake-up call, yet it
seems too many residents are
still asleep," said Max May-
field, National Hurricane
Center Director, in a state-
ment.
Overall, Florida residents,
who haveweathered the most
stormsi, and residents, of
southern states were more
prepared and knew more
about hurricanes than those
in more northern states.
But residents who live
within 30 miles of the coast
were no more prepared and
fared no better on a hurricane
quiz than those who live far-
ther inland.
Mayfield said the coast
faces another active and
potentially deadly season.
"It's vital that residents of
hurricane-vulnerable states
take the threat seriously and


get prepared," he said.
The hurricane season runs
from June 1 to Nov. 30 and
forecasters are expecting it to
be very active. Just recently,
AccuWeather forecasters
warned that they expect five
storms to make landfall.
Mayfield and partners -
the National Emergency
Management Association,
the Salvation Army and the
State Emergency Response
Team of Florida also
announced the launch of the
National Hurricane Survival
Initiative.
SAmong the key findings
that concern emergency
managers:
56 percent of people don't
feel vulnerable to a hurricane
or related tornado or flood-
ing.
S 60 percent have no family
disaster plan.
68 percent have no hurri-
cane survival kit.
83 percent have taken no
steps to make their homes
stronger.
And 13 percent said they
might not or would not evac-
uate even if ordered to leave.
The initiative hopes to
educate residents in hurri-
cane-vulnerable states about
the risks and steps they can
take to protect themselves.


The initiative has a Web site
- hurricanesafety.org and
there are plans to broadcast
two educational programs:
"Hurricane 2006!" and "The
National Hurricane Survival
Test."
"We are beginning to make
progress in creating a culture
of preparedness among Flor-
ida residents," said Florida Lt.
Gov. Toni Jennings in a state-
ment. "But, as the last hurri-
cane season taught us, hurri-
canes are unpredictable and
no one is immune."
Emergency managers said
residents should only go as
far as necessary to find a safe
shelter outside the evacua-
tion zone, yet one in five resi-
dents said they would leave
'only 12 hours to 24 hours
before a storm makes land-
fall. One in three coastal resi-
dents said they would drive as
far as possible, trying to out-
run the storm.
"We need residents to
know they can't outsmart,
outguess or outrun a hurri-
cane," said Florida Division of
Emergency Management Di-
rector Craig Fugate in a state-
ment. "Hurricane forecasts
give us a warning, but these
storms' direction and intensi-
ty are subject to change dra-
matically. People can't wait


until a storm is bearing down
to prepare and have a plan."
Even after seeing the horri-
ble effects of storm surge
from the Mississippi and
Louisiana coasts, many peo-
ple still misunderstand the
threat: 68 percent did not
know storm surge represents
the greatest potential for loss
of life from a hurricane, the
report stated.
Experts say storm surge
can account for deaths far
inland, yet 13 percent of
coastal residents said they
would not or might not evac-
uate even if ordered to do so.
As many as one-third of
residents may not be ade-
quately insured. In addition,
more than half of those sur-
veyed thought their insurance
policies covered flood dam-
age or weren't sure. Home-
owners only have flood pro-
tection if they have purchased
federal flood insurance.
Emergency officials say
preparation is the key, not
only to avoiding damage and
loss of life, but to recovery
after a storm. However, more
than one in four people sur-
veyed said it's the govern-
ment's responsibility to pro-
vide water, food, medicine
and shelter in the first few
days after a hurricane.

Giovanini, Miller, Wheatley love this town


Trio inducted into Venice Sports Hall of Fame
Thursday night at Bogey's.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The 2006 inductees into
the Venice Sports Hall of
Fame Lou Giovanini, Bert
Miller and Brian Wheatley -
are all humble servants of the
community.
But the three have at least
one other thing in common -
they all feel the community has
served them well in return.
A near sellout crowd of
more than 130 people gath-
ered at Bogey's Restaurant
Thursday night at a banquet
honoring Giovanini, Miller
and Wheatley the fourth
batch of inductees selected
to the "Hall.".
The Hall of Fame, initiated
in 2003 to recognize people
who have left a lasting im-
pact on the local sports
scene, has grown to 17 now
with the latest additions.
Miller, a longtime youth
baseball and football coach
and volunteer, echoed a
famous John E Kennedy
speech.
"I know this is to emphasize
what I've done for the com-
munity, but there are a lot of
things the community has
done for me," said Miller, a 57-
year-old Indiana native who
has been in Venice for 22
years.
Giovanini, a very success-
ful baseball and basketball
player and coach in Indiana,
is living testimony of what a
grand retirement place Venice
can be.
"I'm lucky to be living in
Venice," said Giovanini, who
has been instrumental in
helping; iake Venice the un-
official Senior Softball Capital
of the World. "When I first
came here, I had no idea
there was so much senior soft-
ball here. It's worked out
great."
Wheatley, the highly suc-
cessful Venice High girls vol-
leyball coach who has brought
two state titles back to 1
Indian Ave., is a perfect and
vice versa.
"I'm just along for the
ride," said the 35-year-old
phys-ed teacher. "My assis-
tants, the players and the
community drive the wagon."
SThe plaques of the three
Inew inductees joining the 14
others on the "Wall of Fame"
at the entrance of Bogey's, the
traditional venue of the annu-
al ceremonies. The public
can view the plaques year-
round.
Following is more insight
into what Giovanini, Miller


and Wheatley have meant to
the community.
Lou Giovanini
Giovanini is the first person
representing senior softball
voted into the Hall.
The 67-year-old Giovanini
directed Columbus East High
to more than 500 wins in
baseball. In hoops, he had
the school to the state Final
Four once. Columbus East
retired his jersey a couple of
years ago.
After being a snowbird
for several years, Giovanini
moved to Venice in 1990 and
became active in the senior
softball leagues at Bypass
Park.
Giovanini not only excelled
in the weekly leagues at
Bypass Park, but he has
starred with the Legends
travel ball team, which cap-
tures a number of national
events every year.
Giovanini has been presi-
dent of Venice Senior Softball
since 2000. He has already
been elected into the Florida
and National Senior Softball
Hall of Fames.
"I feel fortunate," said
Giovanini, also a big Venice
High Indian sports fan. "It's
very gratifying. This is the
coup de grace."
Giovanini was iritroduced
by senior softball pal Richard
Marks. A number of other
softball pals were in atten-
dance Thursday night.
Bert Miller
Miller grew up in South
Bend, Ind., where he played
baseball and football as. a
lad: Thbe kd-never-grew% out of
Miller, who at the age of 57
still spends most of his
evenings, at one of the youth
sports facilities in town.
Miller began coaching
Little League in 1971. He
stayed with it in his native
Indiana until he moved to
Venice in 1984.
"The first thing I asked
when I got here was, where's
the Little League parks?" said
Miller, who has been involv-
ed with local youth sports
for 22 years now.
Miller quickly became in-
volved coaching with Venice
Little League.'Not long after-
ward, he was helping out
with theVikings youth football
organization and the YMCA
youth basketball program.
Nowadays, Miller is a famil-
iar sight at Chuck Reiter in his
gold cart. He's the first one
there to make sure the lights
are on, and he's the last one

Volleyball wins Big Chief again

The third annual Big Chief Award was handed
out at Thursday night'sVenice Sports Hall of Fame ban-
quet at Bogey's Restaurant.
The award, sponsored by the Gondolier Sun, goes
out to the top Venice High sports team of the school
year.
Winning for the second straight year was the
Lady Indian volleyball, which won a Class 5A State
Championship. The volleyballers also won for the
2004-05 school year after finishing second in the state.
Winning the inaugural Big Chief trophy was the
Venice High wrestling team in 2003-04.
This year's award was -presented to volleyball
head coach Brian Wheatley by Gondolier Sun publish-
er Bob Vedder.


out to turn them off. He helps
out in concessions, wherever
needed, whatever it takes.
Five hours a night at
the ballyard is a good esti-
riate.
Miller has received the
Venice Little League's Life-
time Achievement Award. His
name is on the clubhouse
wall at Chuck Reiter.
In the late summer
through the fall, Miller can
be found at Wellfield. It is
football season and he acts
as athletic director for the
Vikings. He is in charge of
equipment and weigh-ins.
"I'm totally overwhelmed,"
Miller said. "I've done this
because I enjoyed it. I never
expected recognition. I'll
be out there as long as my
health allows me to."
Miller was introduced, by
Bob Vedder, who spent


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
FISHING COLUMNIST

High heat, high humidity
and "high anxiety" are here.
We're at the time of the
year when most of the good
inshore fishing is done in the
first and last hour of light.
That 4-foot tarpon from
two weeks ago was caught by
Tommy "Red Truck" Williams.
He's up to his old tricks again.
Sunday evening he was
catching 7-8 pound jacks at
the South Jetty I fished there
Sunday afternoon for about
two hours and never had a


years volunteering at Chuck
Reiter.
"Bob was coaching when
I first started and stayed for
years umpiring," Miller said.
"He spent all those years
out there. We have some-
thing in common."
Brian Wheatley
Wheatley has been the
head volleyball coach at
Venice High for 12 years
now.
His track record speaks
for itself- more than 300 vic-
tories, 10 district champi-
onships, five regional cham-
pionships, four Final Four
appearances, two runnerups
and two state titles.
The 35 year old Wheatley
lives in Nokomis with wife
Lisa and children Brooke, 4,
and Luke, 2.
Wheatley fell in love with


bump. As evening approach-
ed, the small macs and jacks
arrived. This has been hap-
pening for weeks. The early
morning fishermen catch a
few pomps and macs and
then it's repeated at dusk.
My bass fishing has been
the same scenario. I'm catch-
ing bass in the last hour of
light. If you fish the same
spot three hours earlier, you
probably will get shut out.
I'm seeing one or two
gators every evening. If I see-
one, I skip that pond and
move on. The other evening I
made a cast with my Chug Bug
surface-popping lure. I saw a
swirl coming toward my lure
and I assumed it was
a big bass. Wrong, it was a
4-foot gator. There was a
glare on the water and I
wasn't sure what I had for a
minute or so. Then, I noticed
it wasn't jumping. Now I was
starting to worry. I was able
to bring him over to the edge
of the shoreline as I backed
off. The back hooks on the
lure were on the edge of his
mouth. I flagged down a
evening stroller. Now I had a


volleyball growing up as a
kid in his native California.
He went on to play two
years of men's volleyball at
San Jose State and playing
with a touring two-man grass
organization.
Wheatley went on to get
his bachelor's degree at Au-
burn University.
Wheatley has prepared 25
Lady Indians to play volley-
ball at the next level in col-
lege.
"I'm a little embarrassed,"
he said. "All the coaches at
the school work very hard.
Those other guys work
just as hard. I'm lucky I
guess."
Wheatley was introduced
by former VHS player Erin
Beebe, Several other of
Wheatley's former players
were in attendance Thursday
night.


witness. Big deal I also had
a problem. I wasn't worried
about the expense of the lure.
I was imagining this creature
swimming around with the
lure in his mouth. I kept
trying different things to dis-
lodge the lure. My line is
only 8-pound test. After 15
minutes, he twisted and sure
enough, it fell out of his
mouth.
I checked my line and it
was clean as a whistle. I went
to another pond and caught
two bass, both at least 5-
pounds apiece.
Tarpon were teasing the
fishermen at the Venice Pier
Sunday morning. They were
swimming back and forth,
but wouldn't touch any of
the offerings.
As you can see, all of my
stories in this article occurred
early and/or late in the day.
A few pompano are starting
to show up, but nothing to
write home about.
Fellow Sheepsheadites,
we'll talk again next week.

BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER

August Moon is as colorful as his
occupation.
He is an artist who paints people
two ways. In addition to painting
canvases, Moon paints people, tat-
toos them, to be precise.
MoonDreams Studio is his shop
and studio. It is small when viewed
from the outside, giving absolutely
no indication of the wealth of talent
and art available on the inside.
Stepping inside, customers are
blasted with every color in the rain-
bow. The colors bounce off the clean
surfaces of the shop, tantalizing the
eye in more ways than one.
Moon in full-color
Moon's studio walls are covered in
art, as many people are covered in
tattoos. The color-rich art of David
Bollt adorns the walls with few of
Moon's own paintings interlaced
between. Designs by both artists, are
available for purchase.
What is most impressive about
Moon's studio is his collection of
"flash," a term used by tattoo artists
for the designs, which are displayed
that people can have tattooed.
Usually, the flash is either displayed
on the wall or on sleeves, like
posters. Moon seems to have every
tattoo ever drawn available in his
shop. And, if he doesn't have it, he'll
make it for you.
And then there is Moon himself, a
walking, talking advertisement of his
art. Moon, the man who personally
greets you at the door is a tall man,
covered with tattoos. Like the rest of
his shop, Moon is in full-colot. When
I visited, he was wearing a bright red
outfit and flip flops complete with
hat and rhinestone glasses. It would
seem out of place if Moon weren't as
colorful as the rest of his shop.

WHERE TO FIND IT
MoonDreams Studio is located at 208
South U.S. 41 Bypass in Venice. It is
just south of Splash on Venice
Avenue and U.S. 41 Bypass. Phone
484-7800. Parking is available in the
rear.

Moon came to Venice from Dela-
ware, where he had a prominent tat-
too shop for many years. After hav-
ing a heart attack, he sold his shop in
Delaware and moved to Venice. It
took him almost a year to recuper-
ate, and now he is actively tattooing
again..
Looking at his body of work, it is
easy to see that the tattoos Moon
does look as though they are floating
on the skin and not etched in at all.
They are three-dimensional and
very much as alive as the colors he
uses in executing the designs.
A brief history of the Moon


Moon has been tattooing for
more than 15 years, but he has the
talent and skill of a person who has
been doing it for a lifetime, accord-
ing to reviews by his peers. Moon
owned his shop in Delaware for
many years and said that it was the

August Moon is hard at work.


most successful shop in Delaware at
the time.
"I dare anyone to prove me
wrong," Moon saidwith a wry, con-
fident smile.
His shop in Delaware had as
many as six artists, and a piercer, at a
time, and they were always booked.
"If I didn't have a receptionist, the
shop might as well not have
opened," Moon remembered.
Like many Venice residents,
Moon is retired from his full-throttle
professional career. Now, his shop,
MoonDreams Studio, is much more
relaxed.
"I don't have a piercer on staff,"
Moon says, indicating he wants his
shop to focus more on art and tat-
tooing.
Moon has fought his whole life to
take tattooing out of the back shad-
ows. He recalls when he opened his
shop in Delaware, "I dressed in polo
shirts and khakis," and he was
amazed at how much his business
picked up. He sat on a regulatory
board for body piercing in Delaware,
wanting to ensure ethical piercing
practices. Moon is extremely profes-
sional and takes his craft very seri-
ously.
Moon has a few rules for people
who visit his shop.
"No drinking, no drugs and no
foul language," Moon demands,
expecting his customers will be as
respectful to him as he is to them.
Turning the bad, good
Anyone who looks at Moon's
body of work could easily see that
his specialty is cover ups, and he
agrees. Moon can take any bad tat-
too or any unwanted tattoo and
make it a thing of beauty.
Moon's cover-up talent lies in his
artistic eye. He will take a look at a
bad tattoo and instantly see what he
could do to make it better. Then, he
will take a Sharpie marker and draw
a new tattoo over the old, showing
the customer what he has in mind.
"I didn't know my tattoo could
ever look this good," one client said
of Moon's talent.
Once a pattern is agreed upon by
the artist and the client, Moon traces
the old tattoo on a piece of paper
and begins to work on the cover up.


Before and after images showing how effective Moon's cover ups can be.


Showing off a design he created for a
customer, Moon holds up piece of
tracing paper with an old tattoo's
design and shows how the new
design will cover it perfectly.
Also, many tattoo artists say that
black ink cannot be covered with
anything else. Moon disagrees most

TATTOO FACTS
Cultures all over the world have his-
torically had tattoos.
Sailors used to get tattoos of Jesus on
the crucifix on their backs to prevent
flogging.
It is rumored that Queen Victoria had
a small tattoo in an "intimate" loca-
tion.
Tattoos in non-western cultures often
have symbolic meanings.
Tattoo removal should be done by a
qualified professional.


confidently.
"You can cover black with blue or


green, and fuzz out the black line."
A gift from the Moon
Moon often does the hard jobs
that other tattoo artists pass on.
Tattooing scar tissue can be a diffi-
cult task, as the ink can often get
away, taking on the shape of the tis-
sue rather than the artistic design.
Moon remembers how doing what
he does every day was able to help a
girl who was socially crippled due to
a scar on her upper chest.
"Two tattoo artists I knew recom-
mended her to me," Moon recalls. "I
was flattered that they thought of
me."
The tattoo Moon gave the young
woman was a small red rose with a
short green stem. And, the result
was amazing. The girl was able to
come out of her shell.and live her life
again. Moon has tattooed people
with designs priced at $2,000-
$3,000. But, Moon says, "I love
telling the story about how a $125
tattoo helped a girl live a better life."


Which brings up the subject of
price. Moon is very frank and open
about price where as many artists are:
not. Moon says that the average tattoo:
shop charges $100-$150 an hour.
Since he moved to Venice, he
finds that most of the projects he
does are custom jobs. Since Moon is
also an artist, he can create almost:
any design. But, he is also open to a:
customer bringing in his or her own:
design. While Moon primarily takes:
appointments, if he doesn't have
anyone in his chair, he can usually
do a customer's design that same
day.
The man behind the Moon
Aside from the wealth of art and
beauty he gives to his customers on
a daily basis, Moon also believes in
giving something back to the com-
munity. His favorite causes include
children and the elderly.
"Hospice really took care of my

STAFF REPORT

The Pugh Fund of the
Community Foundation of
Sarasota County recently
announced a grant award of
$27,000 to Big Brothers Big
Sisters of the Sun Coast Inc.
The award will fully fund the
existing Big Brothers Big
Sisters' Decisions to Win
mentoring program at Venice
High School's New DEAL
alternative high school, serv-
ing students at risk of drop-
ping out..Funding will assure
the program's continuity for
the 2006-2007 academic
year.
Patricia Pedrero, vice presi-
dent, Trust Department of
Bank of America and repre-
sentative of the Pugh Fund
advisory committee, visited
New DEAL school to person-
,ally meet with a student,
Shelby Goode, participating
in the mentoring program.
The Venice High School stu-
dent chose to attend New
DEAL, being matched with
a mentor to complete the
Decisions to Win program.
On the day of Pedrero's visit,
Shelby had just completed
her credit requirements for
graduation with the Class of
2006. Alongside Shelby, was
her obviously proud mentor
Bunny -DeCarlo. "She is an
exceptional girl" noted De-
Carlo. "It has been a won-
derful thing for me ... to see
how well she has done."
Shelby shared with Pedrero
the news of her acceptance to
Manatee Community College
for the fall of 2006. A fellow
New DEAL student told
Shelby about the mentoring
program, encouraging her to
participate. She noted that
goal-setting and decision-
making were key concepts
she will take with her from
the Decisions to Win pro-
gram. Beyond that, Shelby
reflected, "I know that I will
always be able to, talkwith her

(read, her mentor), that I can
call her and that she will be
there for me."
Pedrero noted that the
grant committee felt that the
Decisions to Win program
provided a framework for
the development of critical
life skills, especially focused
on providing mentors to
youth at risk of not obtaining
a diploma. The committee
took the unusual step of
choosing to fund the entire
program, rather than the
partial funding requested,
indicative of how valuable
the committee believed the
program to be in supporting
a positive beginning for
young people in the com-
munity.

Research shows more people with diabetes are
talking to their health care providers about taking
a comprehensive approach to managing diabetes.


STAFF REPORT

With diabetes on the rise,
doctors are extremely con-
cerned about associated risks
such as heart disease and
stroke, which together kill
two out of three people with
diabetes. Fortunately, a re-
cent study indicates that
more people with diabetes
are making the link between
diabetes and their increased
risk for heart disease and
stroke.
According to a 2005
awareness survey conducted.
by the American Diabetes
Association (ADA) and Amer-
ican College of Cardiology
(ACC), 45 percent of people
with diabetes understand
their increased risk for heart
disease, which is up from 35
percent in 2001.
Experts believe even more
awareness is needed, how-
ever. The ADA and ACC
continue to work together to
share important information,
tools and resources to en-
courage people with dia-
betes-and health care pro-


viders to learn more about
the impact of diabetes on
the heart.
Other findings from the
2005 ADA/ACC awareness
survey show:
* 69 percent know they may
develop high blood pressure
(38 percent in 2001).
* 64 percent know they are
at risk for cholesterol prob-
lems (37 percent in 2001).
Importantly, more people
with diabetes are talking to
their health care providers
about managing diabetes
comprehensively:
* 45 percent of people with
diabetes now have a goal for
blood glucose levels (30 per-
cent in 2003).
* 57 percent have a goal for
blood pressure (34 percent
in 2003).
* 61 percent have a goal for
cholesterol (34 percent in
2003).
These figures are encour-
aging, but awareness may
not be moving fast enough
to keep pace with the grow-
ing prevalence of diabetes.
Recent statistics indicate


diabetes has risen by more
than 14 percent since last
estimates in 2003. The need
for increased education and
awareness about the link
between diabetes and heart
disease is now more critical
than ever.
Armed with the best in-
formation, people with dia-
betes can properly manage
their diabetes, understand
their risks for complications
such as heart disease and
stroke, and take action to
live a longer, healthier life.
To learn more about dia-
betes and heart disease, call

Pill can eliminate periods,


but is it worth the risk?


SUZY COHEN. R.PH.
COLUMNIST


Q: I take the birth control pill
Seasonale because it gives me
four periods a year. My friend
told me there's a new pill that
stops periods altogether! What
is the drug's name? H.S.,
Broken Arrow, Okla.
A The name of it is Lybrel
and it's soon to be approved
in the United States, Europe
and Canada. Holding off
menses is nothing new.
Women who want to enjoy
their vacation or compete in
athletic competition (or
whatever) can postpone or
skip their period by breaking
into a new pill pack or apply-
ing a new patch when they
are scheduled to go off their
hormones for their monthly
cycle. Women do this sort of
thing all the time; I've done.
it myself. In 2003, Barr
Pharmaceuticals launched
Seasonale. Last year, they
raked in over $100 million
from women who want to
deal with only four periods
a year.
With the advent of con-


More aware of diabetes-



heart disease link


tinuous-use birth control
pills like Lybrel, women can
expect no periods, ever!
Imagine that, 365 glorious
days year with no hormon-
al fluctuations, no PMS, no
cramps, no need to shy
away from sex during
"heavy" days and no mood
swings! Heaven on earth...
but is it really?
On one hand, you have
lifted the "curse" and need
never worry about buying
pads, tampons and Midol
anymore. On,the other hand,
you are messing with Mother
Nature and you're consum-
ing a lab-created agent that
doesn't get processed in
the body very well, hence
causing side effects. That's
two strikes.
Think this out with me
from the perspective that
maybe, just maybe, there is
something abnormal about
completely turning off your
feminine plumbing pipes.
What you will hear is that
Lybrel contains a well-
studied combination of
two drugs, ethinyl estradiol
and levonorgestrel. And
that's true. It is a "well-
studied" combination, which
is found in other popular
oral contraceptives, includ-
ing Alesse, Aviane, Enpresse,
Lessina-28, Levlen, Levlite,
Levora, Nordette, Portia,
Seasonale, Tri-Levlen,
Triphasil and Trivora-28.
The side effects are usually
mild; they include nausea,
cramping, breast tenderness

and bloating. Such serious
side effects as life-threaten-
ing blood clots, stroke, heart
attack and cancer are infre-
quent, but they can occur.
In fact, such problems can
occur with any birth-control
or hormone-replacement
pill, patch, cream or
shot.
Being "well-studied"
implies safety, but risks
increase if you are older,
smoke cigarettes or have
heart disease. So if you are
thinking this out with me,
you should be comparing
risks to benefits. Let's see, the
benefits to never having a
period are obvious and
fabulous but the risks of
using hormones are well-
documented and worthy of
consideration. If you do opt
for this unique innovation,
get regular checkups and
supplement with B vitamins,
L-tyrosine, copper and
vitamin C, since hormones
deplete those nutrients,
possibly causing anxiety,
depression, frustration, anger
or emotional outbursts.

Did you know? Low levels
of Vitamin D in children and
teens may lead to respiratory
ailments and poor lung
function.

BY DAVID GERMAIN
GUEST WRITER


IfAl Gore had been as pas-
sionate and personable on
the 2000 campaign trail as he
is in the global-warming doc-
umentary 'An Inconvenient
Truth," he might be in his
second presidential term
now.
In this surprisingly enter-
taining film, director Davis
Guggenheim has captured a
side of Gore far different
fromnthe stiff political opera-
tor that came across in his
eight years as vice president
arid his run for 'th White
'House.
Guggenheim follows Gore
on his seemingly selfless cru-
sade to educate the world
that global warming is an
imminent threat, interspers-
ing interviews with long
sequences capturing Gore's
elaborate traveling slide
show on the issue.
The film is a magnificent


primer on global warming
and a tough-love commen-
tary on how today's energy
gluttony could be endanger-
ing tomorrow.
Gore comes off as a wry,
likable college professor, the
sort whose classes you al-
ways looked forward to. ,
"I am Al Gore. I used to
be the next president of the
United States of America,"
Gore tells an audience as he
opens one of his presenta-
tions, then adds with feign-
ed vexation after they titter
with laughter: "I don't find
that particularly funny."
To be sure,'Gore'is preaeh-
'ing a gsermorn; aid' he I does
take the occasional jab at
business interests, the Bush
administration and naysay-
ers who remain noncom-
mittal about whether global
warming is real or simply a
result of natural cycles. So
he's not entirely an apolitical
saint doing what's right by
humanity.


Yet even skeptics who go
in scornfully figuring Gore is
serving his own self-interests
may come away wondering,
what's in it for him? Gore
has said he does not plan to
seek office again and that
spreading the word on global
warming will be his main
pursuit from now on.
In "An Inconvenient
Truth," Gore comes across
as a man without a personal
agenda, following a cause for
the greater good, whether
you believe in it or not. Gore
has believed since college in
the 1960s, when he took a
class from Roger Revelle, a
pioneer in global-warming
studies. .
Gore lays out the science
behind the notion that our
fuel emissions act like an
envelope, trapping heat in
the atmosphere and causing
glacial retreat, the melting of
polar ice caps, increases in
hurricane intensity and other
climate changes.


The film includes footage
of the devastation Hurricane
Katrina wrought on New
Orleans and images of melt-
ing glaciers, evaporating
lakes and the vanishing
snows of Mount Kilimanjaro.
It shows what could happen
if ice covering Greenland
and Antarctica continues to
melt huge tracts of Florida
flooded and the site of the
World Trade Center Memor-
ial under water.
To lighten up on the
gloom and doom, Gore lets
his presentation turn silly
with a segment from the ani-
mated TV show "Futurama,"
: in which thuglike green-
house gases beat up solar
rays and leave their rotting
corpses encircling the planet.
The scientific evidence
Gore shares is alarming, but
the film lays out steps to
reverse, the warming trend
a combination of conser-
vation and new energy tech-
nology.

The Break-Up
The Break-Up starts where most
romantic comedies end: after boy
and girl have met, fallen in love,
moved in to start their happily-ever-
after ... and right when they wind, up
driving each other crazy. Pushed to
the breaking-up point after their lat-
est "why can't you do this one little
thing for me?" argument, art dealer
Brooke (Jennifer Aniston) calls it
quits with her boyfriend, Gary (Vince
Vaughn), who hosts bus tours of
Chicago. What follows is a series of
remedies and undermining suggest-
ed by the former couple's friends,
confidantes and the occasional total
stranger. When neither ex is willing to
move out of the condo they used to
share, the only solution is to contin-
ue living as hostile roommates until
somebody caves. But somewhere
between protesting the pool table in
the living room, and the sports
played at sleep-killing volume in the
middle of night, Brooke begins to
realize that what she may be really
fighting for isn't so much the place
but the right person.

Over the Hedge
Spring has sprung, and Verne
and his woodland friends awaken
from their long winter's nap to
discover that a tall, green "thing"
has mysteriously cropped up right
through the middle of their home.
Enter RJ, an opportunistic rac-
coon, who explains that the world
beyond the hedge is the "gateway
to the good life" where peculiar
creatures called humans live to
eat, rather than eat to live.
'Suspicious and even a little jeal-
ous of RJ, the ever-cautious Verne
wants to keep his blended family
safely on their side of the hedge.
But, proving the adage that one
man's garbage is another man's -
or rather animal's treasure, the
manipulative RJ tries to convince
the woodland band that there is
little to fear and everything to
gain from their over-indulgent new
neighbors. Eventually, RJ and
Verne form an unlikely friendship
as they learn to co-exist with -
and even exploit this strange
new world called suburbia.

HOROSCOPE June 2-8


ARIES (March 21-April
19). Since you're fast
approaching some-
thing you want, it's time to
imagine past it. While your
body needs air, water and
food, your soul needs a vision.
Something compelling to look
forward to is your soul's life
"blood."

i TAURUS (April 20-May
20). The person who
is smiling at you is not
doing so because he or she is
merely friendly. The stars high-
light what is so interesting
about you. People you meet
want to know more.

GEMINI (May 21-June
21). End relationships
that are going
nowhere. Make room for
something better, and new '
options appear immediately.
It's notable: A Taurus is solid
and will be very loyal to
you.

6 CANCER (June 22-July
22). Plot your own
course. You're so inde-
pendent and forward thinking,
your ideas attract followers.
You could start a revolution!
Travel and long-distance rela-
tionships prove worth the
effort.

:. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
y Your creativity reaches
4.. new heights, even
though you're the only one
who knows it. Celebrate a job
well done. (This might be a
party for one, and all the better
for you.)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22). Your brisk and
deliberate action
earns the respect of someone
who's hard to win over. (That
person might be you.) Also, if
you dare to let young ones do
their own thing, they make
you proud.


See No Evil
Seven feet tall. Four hundred
pounds. A rusty steel plate screwed
into his skull and razor-sharp finger-
nails that pluck out his victims' eyes.
Reclusive psychopath Jacob
Goodnight (Kane) is holed up in the
long-abandoned and rotting
Blackwell Hotel, alone with his night-
mares until eight petty criminals
show up for community service duty
along with the cop who put a bullet
in Jacob's head four years earlier.
'When one of their own is kidnapped
by the killer and her fate is uncer-
tain, the remaining lawbreakers must
fight this indestructible force of
nature with a violent score to settle.

Sophie Scholl
The true story of Germany's most
famous anti-Nazi heroine is brought
to thrilling life in the multi-award
winning drama 'Sophie Scholl -
The Final Days.' Germany's official
Foreign Language Film selection for
the 2005 Academy Awards, Sophie
Scholl stars Julia Jentsch ('The
Edukators') in a luminous perfor-
mance as the young coed-turned-
fearless activist. Armed with long-
buried historical records of her
incarceration, director Marc
Rothemund expertly re-creates the
last six days of Sophie Scholl's life:
a heart-stopping journey from arrest
to interrogation, trial and sentence.

Thank You
For Smoking
The hero of "Thank You for
Smoking" is Nick Naylor (Aaron
Eckhart), chief spokesman for Big
Tobacco, who makes his living
defending the rights of smokers and
cigarette makers in today's neo-puri-
tanical culture. Confronted by health
zealots out to ban tobacco and an
opportunistic senator (William H.
Macy) who wants to put poison
labels on cigarette packs, Nick goes
on a PR offensive, spinning away the
dangers of cigarettes on TV talk
shows and enlisting a Hollywood
super-agent (Rob Lowe) to promote
smoking in movies. Nick's newfound
notoriety attracts the attention of
both tobacco's head honcho (Robert
Duvall) and an investigative reporter
for an influential Washington daily
(Katie Holmes). Nick says he is just
doing what it takes to pay the mort-
gage, but he begins to think about


SLIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). When in doubt,
hire a professional,
preferably with the proper cre-
dentials. The planets suggest
that there're trustworthy souls
all around you, and you'll ef-
fortlessly attract the right one.

;. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-
Nov. 21). Though you
.... hate to admit it,
you're human, and you need
love. So relax your critical mind
let your Scorpio stinger rest.
The quickest way to get the
love you need is to allow your-
self to give without judgment.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21). By hold-
ing on tootightly toa
deal, you could lose it. Notice
all your options, not only the
one in your hand. This will bol-
ster your confidence, boost
your finances and pump up
your attraction quotient.

SCAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). The omens
suggest you turn up
your powers of discernment.
Lies may have temporary in-
fluence, but truth has super
power. No matter how speedy
a lie is, the truth will catch up.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18). You feel
you're waiting. You're
not, because the anticipation
of the event IS the event. The
metaphorical line you're stand-
ing on is not a "line" at all, but
a circle. The one who is first
might be last, and the last one
might be first.

.. PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20). You'll meet peo-
ple you've met before,
see things you've seen before
and say words you've said
before. Yet, it's all different
now. What does it mean? You
have to dig deep to find the
connection, but it's there.

Actor Richard E. Grant makes his
directorial debut with this semi-auto-
biographical drama/comedy about
English colonial life in Swaziland as
seen through-the eyes of a teenage
boy who struggles to make sense of
his life after his philandering mother
(Miranda Richardson) abandons the
family and his alcoholic father
(Gabriel Byrne) marries a younger
woman (Emily Watson). Set in the
late 1960s, Wah-Wah delights with
its well-crafted blend of comedy and
drama, stunning African landscapes
and droll caricatures of latter-day
British imperial pretensions.

between the followers of Charles
Xavier (Patrick Stewart), who preach-

Off to attend sustainable i.

ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST


Next Thursday and Friday,
on behalf of the South Venice
Civic Association, I will be
attending a two-day work-
shop on sustainable commu-
nities. I hope to bring back to
our homeowners association
some new information on
how we,'as an old, established
(more than 50 years) subdivi-
sion can adapt some of the
new principles of sustainabil-
ity.
These key topics should
help:
Zero energy the target
for homes and communities
Energy-tax incentives


Low-impact water man-
agement
Resource efficient com-
munities
Florida Yards and Neigh-
borhoods best practices
There are already volumes
of general information avail-
able.
At the SVCA we have had
two good speakers on some
small steps to take. It seems
like a lofty goal for us because
we are already built out.
I believe there are some
things we can do to revitalize
our design and lifestyle and
earn the title of a true sustain-
able community.
The cost of the workshop is
$50. It will be held at the
Gulfcoast Florida Girl Scout
Council headquarters in Sara-
sota.
For more details, visit sus
tainablecommunities.scgov

Habitat planning three-house blitz


STAFF REPORT

Habitat for Humanity
South Sarasota County Inc.
will build three houses on
Floribanna Street in the North
Port area as part of the
nationwide Habitat for
Humanity Home Builders
Blitz 2006 taking place June 5-
9.
More than 400 houses are
being built throughout the
country for families who
would otherwise be unable to
afford their own home.
Coordinated by the Home-
builders Association of Sara-
;sota Countyi Homebuilders


Association members John
Olliver and daughter Kelly,
owners of Precision Custom
Homes Inc., said construc-
tion will begin simultaneous-
ly on the three houses.
Participating homebuild-
ers are Jade Homes, David
Schroeders Homes and Peter
Shipps Design and Con-
struction. These home-
builders and their subcon-
tractors are donating all
materials and labor needed to
construct the homes.
The sites, prepped by
Habitat volunteers with the
foundation slab, the drive-
way, well and septic tank, are


ready for the builders and
their subcontractors to com-
plete the houses inside and
out in the five-day time
frame.
Even landscaping will be
provided. -
"This is, by far, the most
challenging project ever
undertaken by our organiza-
tion," said JudyWilcox, execu-
tive director of the South
Sarasota County Habitat.
"With the completion of
these houses, three more
families will have a home of
their own."
SFamilies must qualify
through die Habitat program,


which covers financial and
homeownership instruction
plus 300 hours of actual work
(sweat equity) on a construc-
tion site.
After completion of the
program, Habitat families
purchase their houses from
Habitat, which provides a no-
interest loan.
Thirty-one houses have
been built in the South
Sarasota County area since
1992.
For further information or
to volunteer to help during
the Blitz, contact Habitat for

tGolfers"' 1
are often
advised to
shorten their back
swings in the interest of reducing
twisting of the back and spine. Doing
so reduces the potential for back
problems. However, many golf experts believe
that a shorter back swing will produce less
power, resulting in shorter drives. But they may
also note that a compact swing may allow more
precise placement of the ball. For the ordinary
golfer, the potential increase in accuracy may
more than compensate for the loss of distance. Of
more immediate concern to the chiropractor is the
noticeable increase in shoulder muscle activation
) that seems to come with a short swing. If this
compensatory action cannot be controlled, golfers
may be trading one problem for another.

Music Festival provides a
quirky concert broadcast
underwater for divers and
snorkelers at Looe Key Reef in
the Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary.
In July, the 26th annual
Hemingway Days draws.fans
of Ernest Hemingway's litera-
Sture and lifestyle to Key West,
the island where the author
lived, and wrote throughout
the 1930s. The festival, which
features a look-alike contest,
author readings and presen-
tations, the Drambuie Key
West Marlin Fishing Tourn-
ament, the Lorian Heming-
way Short Story Competition
and an offbeat "Running of
the Bulls," takes place July 18-
23.
In late August and early
September, the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary
takes center stage with an
annual natural phenomenon
scuba diving enthusiasts have
dubbed Sex on the Reef. It's
the annual coral spawning
ritual, and dive shops
throughout the area conduct
evening excursions to witness
the ritual some compare to an
upside-down underwater
snow storm.
Sept. 29 through Oct. 1, the
Florida Keys Birding &
Wildlife Festival celebrates
the natural wonders of Flor-
ida wildlife at the peak of the
fall birding season.. Taking
place in Marathon and the
Lower Keys, the festival in-
cludes presentations and field
trips focusing on education
and conservation relating to
Keys birds and wildlife, as well
as an environmental fair.
Even when summer ends,
the revelry continues into the
fall with Fantasy Fest, Oct. 20-
:29. The 10-day masking and '
costuming celebration fea-
tures elaborate costume com-
petitions, promenades and
street fairs, masquerade galas
and a grand parade with lav-
ish floats and eccentric
marching groups.

Grammar is 'so much fun'


,, ,



JUNE CASAGRANDE
;, .' q, 8:


It's a beautiful, sunny day
in Burbank, Calif., and I'm sit-
ting in a broadcasting studio
with two of the five Satellite
Sisters. If you're not faniiliar
with this nationally syndicat-
ed ABC Radio show, the
Satellite Sisters are five real-
life sisters who broadcast live
from three different locations
- the cleverest way I've heard
yet of getting the boss to pay
for you to chat long-distance
with your sister in Moscow.
The Satellite Sisters are also
cool women the kind of
people I'd like to hang out
with if I could figure out a way
.to say, "Will you be my
friends," without sounding
like that mousy-haired girl in
high school who always want-
ed to hang out with the cheer-
leaders. (Note: This is a hypo-
thetical example and anyone
who tells you different is a liar
- no matter how many years
we went to school together.)
On this sunny Burbank
day, I'm talking with only
three of the Satellite Sisters -
Lian and Sheila in the studio;
Monica on the phone. Julie
and Liz have figured out how
to take the day off from being
sisters (just as I have when my
own -sisters have needed
babysitters or money).

The Satellite Sisters have
me in the studio to talk about
grammar. And if that's not
scary enough, consider this:
They're taking live questions
from callers. Live grammar'
questions. And I'm the one
they expect to be able to
answer them- live.
But there's a beacon of
hope in the middle of the
fancy recording studio table
- a shining light to deliver
me from fear. Right there,
amid the microphones and
wires, is a computer monitor.
It's displaying the names of
the people who are on hold
waiting to ask grammar ques-
tions and, even better, the
questions themselves.
I see that a listener in
Miami wants to know about
"drink, drank, drunk,", as the
producer's shorthand puts it.
A listener in the Midwest has a
question summed up as
"good and well." And another
caller is holding to talk about
"so fun or so much fun."
I'm prepared to answer any
of these, orso I think, but in a
divinely guided moment dur-
ing a commercial break I say
to Lian, "'Good and well' is a
good one."
"Good and well" thus
becomes my last question of
the day. And it's good and well
that it is, because when I get
home and look up "fun," I
learn that I would have been
very unwise to open my trap
on that one.
I'll spare you what I might
have said and cut straight to
what should be said.
The reason we say that
something was "so much fun"
instead of "so fun" is because,
traditionally, "fun" has not.
been an adjective. Just a
noun.


LASSIFIED

Think of a noun such as,
say, "gasoline." You can have
"so much gasoline," but it
would be more than a stretch
to say something was "so
gasoline."
The traditional usage then,
is pretty strict. It means that
you can't-use "fun" in a con-
text like, "It was a fun party."
Technically, that's ho more
correct than saying, "It was a
gasoline party." (Which, now
that I think about it, is just
crazy enough to work as an
excuse to get out of babysit-
ting.)
It's obvious why this strict
limitation on "fun" has erod-
ed. There is no handy adjec-
tive equivalent for "fun." Sure,
you could say "an entertain-
ing party," "an amusing party"
or "a fun-inducing party," but
nothing captures it like forc-
ing the noun to act as an
adjective something we do
in English all the time. Think
"Superbowl party," "ice cream
party," "pizza party" and "pity
party."
So "fun" weaseled its way
into the dictionary as an
adjective, but only an infor-
mal one. And one, the author-
ities agree, that has no com-
parative or superlative forms.
In other words, there is no
"funner" or funniest. There is
only fun.
And that's exactly what I
got from my half-hour with
the Satellite Sisters.

including child safety and
other measures of the Healthy
Homes Initiative and the
energy efficiency and disaster
resistance standards recom-
mended by the Partnership
for Advancing Technology in
Housing.
"The partnerships forged
are indicative of the wide sup-
port Catholic Charities has to
do this project," said USDA
Rural Services State Director
Charles Clemons. "Florida
government is keenly aware
of the iniquities of affordable
housing in the State of
Florida. This is an emergency
situation. People need a safe
place to rest their heads at
night," he said.
"Casa San Juan Bosco is
core to the, mission to provide
good housing for the under-
privileged we serve," said Jack
Martin, chairperson of
Catholic Charities Housing.
"We are indebted to USDA for
recognizing the need to pro-
vide farm worker housing in
Arcadia.'We owe more than
thanks but a commitment to
develop a project that meets
expectations," he said.
Catholic Charities Pres-
ident Peter Routsis-Arroyo
said wherl Hurricane Charley
ravaged DeSoto County in
2004, around 60 percent of
the farm worker housing was
destroyed. "There was a need
for housing prior to the hurri-
cane. Out of the devastation,
this project was born," he
said.
The development offers a
rural community incorporat-
ing ingredients that help farm
workers to build greater self-
sufficiency. Casa San Juan
Bosco will offer onsite child-
care, education and employ-
ment training, health care

and home ownership train-
ing.
These supportive services
will initially help stabilize
agricultural workers and their
families, then increase their
skills to earn a living wage,
and finally to assist each fam-
ily into home ownership.
Catholic Charities Housing
will construct the Casa San


Juan Bosco community in
three phases where eventual-
ly almost 700 people will be
able to live in the single-fami-
ly homes.
The housing project, des-
ignated for farm workers, will
be the first in Arcadia that is
not employer owned and one
that encourages the goal of
self-sufficiency for tenants.


Casa San Juan Bosco will fea-
ture a community center,
play area, park, soccer and
baseball fields and a nature
preserve.
"Casa San Juan Bosco is
simple," said Sister Cathy

RIlI(il0N (C0IMNIS I


Oie of the most merio-
rable1 moments in the Bible
occurs when a young wid w's
love for her mother-in-law
leads her to declare, "Wher-
ever you go, I will go, wherev-
er you lodge I shall lodge...
Where you die I shall die."
(Ruth 1:16-17.)
These famous utterances
came from Ruth, whose h is-
band had died in her native
land of Moab and whpse
mother-in-law Naomi urged
her to stay and remarry.
Instead, Ruth chooses to
accompany Naomi back to
Israel, Naomi's homeland.
The friendship of the two
women as Rabbi Joseph
Telushkin describes- it in
"Jewish Literacy" becomes "as
much of a biblical model of
friendship as that of David
and Jonathon." It leads Ruth,
a Moabite who wishes to cpn-
vert to Judaism, to speak the
words that have fused the
Jewish people together since
the giving of the Torah on
Mount Sinai: "Your people
shall be my people and your
God my God." (Ruth 1:16)
This act of faith encourages
Naomi to introduce Ruth to
her cousin Boaz and their
marriage culminates three
,-., generations later-in the birth
,of David, Israel's greatest king.
Ruth's embrace of Judaism
parallel's the Israelites em-
brace of the Torah at Mount
Sinai. At the base of Sinai,
according to the Torah.
600,000 Israelite men gath-
ered, and together widh their
wives and children, entered
into an everlasting covenant


with God.
These voices echo across
the vastness of time as the
Jewish people celebrate the
holiday of Shavuot. when tra-
dition dictates the reading of
the Book of Ruth following the
portion of the Torah describ-
ing the handing down of the
Law.
In its spiritual sense, Sha-
vuot marks the bonding of
religion and its people. But we
also learn the essence of
humanity, indeed of religion
itself caring for and taking
care of each other. "If people
do not take care of each other,
humankind cannot exist,"
says the Talmud.
As we read from the Book
of Ruth it becomes evident
that Naomi cares about her
daughter-in-law's future hap-
piness, a trait that manifests
itself in mutual love and leads
Ruth to follow Naomi from.
the familiar to the unknown
to the land of Israel and its
religion.
Perhaps as important is the
respect they show for each
other, a respect for each
other's differences that shines
through the adversities of life
and makes them whole, the
ability as defined in the dic-
tionary to put another per-
son's interests first,
Brought down to our daily
lives, this means being con-
siderate of a person's feelings;
thinking before one utters the,
thoughtless words, the words
that hurt and wound and fall:
like acid rain into a sea of bit-,
terness.
Because Shavuot in its or-,
iginal observance was a har-
vest festival, there is a strong;
tradition to eat dairy foods.
.."Honey and milk are under
your tongue,", states a a erse in
Song of Solomon (4:11), a
homily that goes beyond
one's diei.
Shalom.

unon the respect of religion,
beauseit is such an impor-
tant part of people's lives,"
Says DC executive editor Dan
DiDio. "We had to show that
,there is some level of belief
That takes place with our
characters."
In the foreword to "The
Gospel According to Super-
heroes," a book examining
superheroes and religion, leg-
endary comic-book writer
and editor Stan Lee says he
always scrupulously avoided
any mention of specific reli-
gions in his stories. "I thought
of myself as an 'equal oppor-
tunity writer,' he says.
But a few writers have
, brought religion into the mix
When taking on some long-
Stime characters. Frank Miller,
Sfor example, established Mar-
vel's blind Daredevil as Cath-
Solic many years ago.
S "From a story point of
View, a guy that dresses up
,, like a devil but is devoutly
Christian is interesting," says
. Joe Quesada, Marvel Comics
q editor in chief. "Just the same
" way that the fact that he is a
lawyer by day and practices
vigilante justice at night is
Interesting and makes for


great storytelling. ..
More recently, Ben GriLmm
- the Thing from the Fan-
tastic Four was revealed to
be Jewish.
It had long been estab-
lished that Ben grew up in an
eastside New York neighbor-
hood that was, at the time the
character was created, "a very
Jewish area of NewYork City,"
Quesada says.
"It just seemed to make
sense for Ben," he says. "If it
makes sense, we'll absolutely
go there. If it's just frivolous,
what's the point?"
The growing acknowledg-
ment of religious beliefs re-
flects a cultural shift, says
Douglas Rushkoff, an author,
media critic and writer of
"Testament," a comic-book
series with religious themes.
When comic books first
appeared in the late '30s,
'America was supposed to be
a melting pot," Rushkoff says.
"That was our cultural meta-
phor. Religion and ethnicity
were supposed to be subordi-
nate to our role as Americans.
"I think now we're much
more in a multicultural phase
where people are trying to
discover their roots."

Superman's pal Jimmy Olsen was most likely created as a
Lutheran.


But don't expect most su-
perheroes to suddenly start
going to church or synagogue
and discussing their religious
beliefs.
Religious themes are ex-
plored freely in the growing
subgenre of Christian comics,
which are usually the prov-
ince of small, independent
publishers.
Larger publishers such as
DC and Marvel have a wider


readership to worry about.
"I don't know of any main-
stream publisher who would
bite that bullet too hard, not
in fear, but in concern of not
wanting to divide their audi-
ence," comic-book writer
Fabian Nicieza says.
With or without overt ref-
erences to religion, superhero
stories resonate for people of
faith, says Greg Garrett,
author of "Holy Superheroes!

Enclaves home offered for sale


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Upgraded black appliances and dark solid-surface counters let
the real wood cabinets sparkle.


Located in the Enclaves
of Venice North is a three-
bedroom, two-bath
house, which is being
offered for sale only be-
cause its owner has been
transferred out of town.
Situated on a tree-
framed 50-foot by 106-
foot lot at the end of a cul
de sac in the Enclaves of
Venice North subdivision,
the home is a brand-new
custom-built home with
plenty of upgrades, from
the designer French doors
at the entry to the double
tray ceiling in the over-
sized great room. There
also is a double tray ceil-
ing in the master suite.
There are 11-foot ceilings
in every room in the
house. Doors are 8-feet
tall throughout the house.
Other architectural details
added to the house
include decorative col-
umns, archways and
floor-to-ceiling invisible-
tint windows.
Solid surface dark-
hued counters with bev-
eled edges and maple
raised panel cabinets em-
bellish the gourmet kitch-
en, which also has a
breakfast area at one end.
Upgraded black appli-
ances compliment, the
dark counters.
Five ceiling fans are
included in the 1,913-


square-foot house, which
also has a two-car attach-
ed garage and a large
screened lanai.
The house is just down
the street from the soon-
to-be-built community
pool in the subdivision,
which is so new that side-
walks were still being
poured the day I checked
out the house.
The Enclaves is a main-
tenance-free community
in which lawn care and
basic landscaping are
included in the home-
owner association fee, list-
ing Realtor Charryl You-
man said.
A covered portico at the
entrance is framed by dec-
orative white columns,
which stand out against
the gray-green stucco
house.
The Enclaves is just 2
miles to Interstate 75's Exit
193 at Jacaranda Boul-
evard. From downtown
Venice, take Venice Ave-
nue east to The Enclaves
North, which is on the last
road west of Jacaranda
and on the north side off
East Venice Avenue.
Listed for $367,900 with
Charryl Youman of Pru-
dential Village Realty, the
house can be seen by ap-
pointment. An open
house is planned for Sat-
urday, June 10, 10 a.m.-1
p.m.
Call Youman at 468-
5215 or 207-5069.


Exterior of a new home offered for resale in the Enclaves of
Venice, shows its stately entrance, highlighted by 8-foot tall
doors, which are used throughout the house.
