Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
REED HURST


theft and operating as an
unlicensed contractor.
"I'm happy," Sal Licata,
owner of Sal and Tony's
Pizzeria in Venice. "I kind of
gave up hope. Let's see what
kind of case they have."
Adams was booked into
the Manatee County Jail. His
bond was set at $21,000.
The investigation
A Venice Gondolier Sun
reporter was contacted early
in the Adams investigation
by Manatee County Sheriff's
Detective Dan Curry.
Curry asked for previously
published information on
the Adams case. The paper
provided the information
from two stories it published
in December 2004.
According to the MCSO
news release, a man contact-
ed detectives on May 19. He
told investigators he was in
the process of opening a
restaurant in Bradenton.
He said Adams, who oper-
ates Bay Breeze Maintenance,
contacted him and asked
him if he wanted to buy
restaurant equipment.
The victim gave Adams
$12,000 for the equipment,
which was supposedly valu-
ed at $40,000. That price
included installation and
permits.
The victim said he got
three pieces of broken and
rusted equipment valued at
less than $100. He said he
found the equipment at his
back door. He said it was left
there sometime during the
night.
A few days later, the victim
gave investigators informa-
tion from other victims in
the restaurant business who
were allegedly ripped off by
Adams.
More local victims
Chris King, owner of The
Dome Farm and Flea Market,


Adams


was another alleged victim.
He said Adams' arrest "helps,"
but more needs to be done
to stop unscrupulous con-
tractors from preying on
victims.
"I think there ought to be
legislation to criminalize
unlicensed contractors,"
King said. "That's how these
guys get away with it they
know it will be called a civil
action."
King probably went fur-
ther that most of the alleged
victims in trying to bring
Adams to justice.
He said the state attorney
dropped the ball on the
Adams case.
"DBPR (Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation) did an excellent
job of putting a case togeth-
er, and the state attorney
said, 'Sorry.' King said. "The
arrest helps, but in the
meantime, I spent umpteen-
thousand dollars (trying to
get enough evidence for
prosecution)."
Lies
One of Adams' alleged
victims is Anita Nikolov,
owner of a popular Nokomis
eatery on U.S. 41 called
Anita's Restaurant.
"They ripped me on a
chicken rotisserie," she said
nearly 18 months ago when
the story broke,. "He says

things that are not true -
lies."
She said Bay Breeze re-
moved a couple of old pizza
ovens from her restaurant
and in return gave her a
chicken rotisserie she need-
ed but that was not elec-
trically compatible with her
wiring.
"It cost me $800 .to have
an electrician come in and
rewire it for three phase,"
she said. "He (Adams) told
me all I needed was a differ-
ent cord."
Then there are the pizza
ovens worth $1,000 that he
took away.
"He basically swapped
me the rotisserie," she said.
"I never agreed to keep it
and when I called to tell him
to come pick it up, he said it
was too late."
SExcuses
Louis Migliaccio, owner of
the Cafe Gabbiano on Siesta
Key, gets so worked up when
you mention Adams' name
he starts sputtering and can
barely be understood.
"The guy's a bum," Mig-
liaccio said in an earlier
interview.
Migliaccio said Adams
clipped him for roughly
$8,000.
"His equipment is s and
his service stinks," Migliaccio
said. "With him, it is one
excuse after another."
Migliaccio said Adams got
him an oven hood.
"It was the biggest piece
of junk I've ever seen," he
said. "I said, what the hell,
this thing looks like a piece
from the space shuttle."
Migliaccio said Adams
would say he would be back
to fix whatever was wrong
and then did not show up.

OUR TOWN SECTION


True to his word, Waterford
president and CEO Mike
Miller scaled back his rede-
velopment project across
the street from his Intra-
coastal Waterway towers.
Two sets of concept plans
were dropped off at Venice
City Hall for the roughly 3.5
acres of property bordered
by U.S. 41 Business, Venice
Avenue and the Intracoastal
Waterway.
One set is nearly identical
to the plans of a year ago.
Aside from the waterfront
restaurant and parking gar-
age, all but two of the nine
structures would be five sto-
ries or taller.
Five of them would be
seven stories, and appear to
have the largest footprint.
Any building taller than five
stories would be required to
have some type of commer-
cial use on the first two
floors.
Height, massing and po-
tential traffic jams drew the
most criticism when the orig-
inal proposal was submitted.
The height reduction does
not appear to be as drastic as
some might have hoped. The


main section tops out at five
stories over one level of
parking for a total of six sto-
ries and is broken into four
separate buildings.
The previous proposal
was like an enclosed rectan-
gle reaching seven stories
with a two-story parking
garage in the middle and a
green space on the roof.
The parking area is now
only one story, but the green
space and pedestrian ameni-
ty area remain on the roof
and the box-like feel has
been removed.
A fifth building will be on
the Intracoastal Waterway
with retail on the first floor,
a restaurant on the second
floor, a spa and office space
on the third floor and hotel
units on the fourth floor.
Miller said both retail and
office space suffered the
most in the redesign.
"We made it lower with
less massing," Miller said.
"We deleted probably 70
percent of the office space
and maybe 50 percent or
more of the retail.
SMiller said he is most
proud of the architectural
plan, which he says is a vast

Some schools not


gaining 30 minutes

The district says its plan has always been
to standardize the school day at 6 hours and
45 minutes, so Venice High will pick up only
15 minutes instead of the extra half hour
of instructional time expected.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

When voters approved ex-
tending the four-year school
tax in March 2006, a key sell-
ing point was that funds
raised would be used in part
to extend the school day an
additional 30 minutes. It was
the keystone in superinten-
dent Gary Norris's NeXt
Generation Learning plan.
Technically, that happened.
But it may come as a sur-
prise that some area schools
in Sarasota County are seeing
an increase of only 15 min-
utes in additional classroom
instruction.

According to school open-

If the dreaded bird flu,
called H5N1, becomes pan-

a family in Indonesia as the
"alpha" cluster.
It happened in May. First,
an older woman became ill
and died. A week later, family
members became ill. Six of
seven died. Testing confirmed
bird flu.
Health authorities looked
for an H5N1 source, but found
none outside the family. It
appears the disease spread
person-to-person.
That's the worst possible
news about this feared dis-
ease. No mutation of the virus
took place, authorities say, but
they cannot explain the conta-

Legacy Awards presented for historical contributions


STAFF REPORT

The Venice Historic Pres-
ervation Board presented its
second annual : Legacy
Awards, to the Venice Area
Historical Society and, post-
huiously, to pioneer George
Higel.
The presentation took
place at a city council meet-
ing May 23.
George Higel was 10 years
old when he moved to Ven-
ice with his parents. He was
born in Philadelphia, Pa., on
Dec. 19, 1874, and married
Abigail Williamsin 1906. The
couple had six children.
Higel began writing for the
Manatee River Journal when
he was 15 years old. Later, he
worked as a columnist for the
Sarasota Times, using the pen
name "Nemo."
His writing shared his per-
spective of the people, places,
activities, business and poli-
tics of early Venice. The
columns were preserved for
future generations to enjoy
in a book, "Venice Before
1925: Nemo Columns By
George Higel," available at
the Triangle Inn.
Besides creating a memoir
of his times, Higel worked as
the manager of the J.H. Lord
citrus grove for 35 years; lob-
bied to plant and cultivate
oysters in Roberts Bay; served
as an elected trustee of the
Venice school district; and as
a Sarasota County commis-
sioner.
Several of George Higel's
grandchildren accepted the
award recognizing their
grandfather's contribution to
the history of Venice. They
were Ra!dall Higel, Norma

Historical beginnings
The Venice Area HiStorical
Society began in 1991 as the
Venice Historic Preservation
League. It was formed by
residents interested in the
community's history who en-
couraged historical research
and the appreciation of local
historical sites..
The organizations first
president, Betty Intagliata,
received the award on behalf
of the group. Its fist vice
president was George Mc-
Lean.
In May 2001, the name
was changed to its current
designation with the goal of
protecting the past and en-
visioning the future. ts mis-
sion is to develop and pro-
mote public awareness of the
history of the Venice area
and to be actively engaged in
the preservation of local his-
toric sites.
Due to the Historica Soci-
ety's work, several sites have
,been presented historic
plaques and placed on the
National Register. They are
the Triangle Inn, in 1996; El
Patio Hotel, 2000; the original
Hotel Venice (now known,
as Summerville in Venice),
2001; Johnson-Schoolcraft

choose. Rest assured that at Venice Regional
Medical Center, the finest resources are backing
our emergency department. They're the kinds
of things that can make a life-saving difference
when every moment counts. Which is exactly
why you should count on us.

JRinglng Bros. offer could pave way for new arena

Ringling Bros. offer could pave way for new arena


BY BOB ARDREN AND JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

An offer by Ringling Bros.
and Barnum & Bailey Com-
bined Shows to rent a new
arena for more than three
months each year could allow
Sarasota County Fair Board
directors to move ahead with
renovation plans, and put an
end to speculation about a
relocation of Cincinnati Reds
spring training facilities.
On May 18, County Com-
mission Chairman David
Mills received a three-page
letter from circus representa-
tive Thomas L. Albert that
describes a possible return of
the "Greatest Show On Earth"
to Sarasota, along with Disney
On Ice shows and other pro-
ductions.
"There's no doubt Sarasota
would be honored to have
discussions with Ringling
Bros. regarding the circus
returning," Sarasota Mayor
Fredd Atkins said reacting to
the news.
"Feld Entertainment pro-
ductions could easily occupy
an arena for over one quarter
of the year," Albert stated.
"Moreover, our experience
tells us the regular presence


of Ringling Bros. and Disney
productions would attract
patrons to Sarasota from a
multi-county area."
In fact, such an attraction
would bring people to Sara-
sota from much farther than
that, according to Tourist
Development Executive Di-
rector Virginia Haley.
"Many places have beach-
es, but circus is what makes
this county a unique destina-
tion," Haley said. 'And Ring-
ling, like it or not, is the name
associated with this area.
Sure, we'd have to closely
watch over our other circus
assets such as Circus Sarasota,
Sailor Circus, the new Tib-
bels Learning Center and the
like, but having Ringling
come back would certainly
add to our assets."
Haley is even presently
working on a circus heritage
trail in Sarasota that plans call
for to be completed by fall.
Attention-getter
Owned by Kenneth Feld
and his family, Feld Entertain-
ment operates three traveling
circus units, eight domestic
and international ice shows,
and two "Disney Live" stage
productions. Several hundred


employees will be in Sarasota
this month for annual com-
pany meetings.
"Much as Broadway is
known for theater and Orlan-
do for theme parks, Sarasota
embodies the culture and his-
tory of circus in America,"
Albert continued. "beginning
with John Ringling's decision
to winter his shows here in
1927 and enduring today
with a world-class circus
museum and art collection at
the Ringling Museum."
The Ringling Bros. letter
will be hard for County Ad-
ministrator Jim Ley and City
Manager Mike McNees to
ignore. They want to move
the Reds to a new stadium
and training complex at the
fairgrounds, and relocate the
fairgrounds as part of a multi-
faceted recreational plan.
McNees reacted to the
news' saying, "My only reac-
tion is we need more infor-
mation. Obviously Jim (Ley)
and I will try to sit down with
them in the next week or two."
On Tuesday however, Fair
Board President Rory Martin
indicated that a long-term
commitment from Feld En-
tertainment could persuade
directors to sell off a 5-acre


Tuttle Avenue parcel and use
the money to build a new
agricultural arena that would
be big enough for Ringling
Bros. rehearsals.
"We've been offered $6
million for the land," he said.
"It could be enough to build a
shell building that is 60 feet
tall and has enough floor
space for circus and ice shows.
There would be bleacher
seats. What we receive in rent
would help provide additional
finish for the structure."
Possibilities
Haley saw positive possibil-
ities in such an arrangement
for all parties involved.
Speaking carefully because
her board has yet to take a
position on the matter, she
explained an arena financed,
owned and managed by the
fair board would free up
Tourist Development Council
funds previously asked for an
arena and would allow the
TDC to use the money to help
market such a facility when it
wasn't being used by Feld.
If fair directors decide to
move ahead without financial
help from the county, it could
scuttle a North County Rec-
reation Facility Enhance-


ments plan devised by Ley
and McNees that was recently
pitched to a committee of
state lawmakers in Tallahas-
see.
Armed with the plan, coun-
ty and city officials lobbied for
a $15 million grant to build a
new spring training baseball
facility for the Reds at the
fairgrounds site on Fruitville
Road, relocate the fair-
grounds, and turn the Ed
Smith Stadium complex over
for public uses.
The Florida Legislature
allocated $15 million each for
five spring training communi-
ties, but Gov. Jeb Bush has
yet to sign off on the measure.
If he approves it, the money
would be received in $4,167
monthly installments over
the next 15 years.
"If we pledge that money
to sell stadium construction
bonds it will only raise about
$7.5 million," County Com-
missioner and Tourist Devel-
opment Council chairwoman
Nora Patterson said. "That's
not enough. Even if we add in
another half-cent of tourist
tax for the project, it's still
not enough."
Patterson said there are so
many "loose ends" in the plan


devised by Ley and McNees,
it is difficult to make deci-
sions.
"It's the most complex
community conversation I've
ever been involved in," she
said, "but somehow we will
muddle through this."
Renovation?
One way would be to reno-
vate Ed Smith Stadium, the
adjacent practice fields and
clubhouse facilities with the
state grant, if Bush doesn't
veto it.
"I might support a stadium
renovation," Patterson said,
"then we could turn around
and consider what is needed
at the fairgrounds."
In the past, fair officials
have lobbied the county for
tourist tax revenue to help pay
for renovations, but Patterson
suggested the general public
might be willing to contribute
through an extension of the
1-percent local option sales
tax, which is scheduled to
expire in 2009.
Asked for his reaction,
Sarasota Vice Mayor Danny
Bilyeu said, "I've always been
intrigued by the possibility of
Ringling returning to Sara-
sota."

Bay's health is



barometer for economy


Fifty water-dependent industries, including
tourism, depend on the condition and quality of
Sarasota Bay arid the Gulf of Mexico.
I


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

The area's economy, par-
ticularly tourism,! depends
too much on the health of
Sarasota Bay, according to a
survey of residents and visi-
tors conducted for the Sara-
sota Bay Nationl Estuary
'Program. I
The Estuary Program of-
fice in Sarasota, i which is
expected to offer its first
update on the state of the bay
in six years later t"is spring,
contracted with Beacon Re-
search Inc., to poll 602 people
in the area by telephone. The
objective was to measure
public concern about red tide
and other water quality
issues.
Sarasota Bay Esuary Pro-
gram, in partnership with
Sarasota and Manatee Coun-
ties, the cities of Bradenton,
Longboat Key and Sarasota,
the state Department of
Environmental Protection
and the Southwest Florida
Water Management District,
monitors compliance with a
1995 comprehensive conser-
vation and management plan
for the 56-mile-long stretch of
the water between Bradenton
and Venice.


It was certified in 1987 by
the U.S. Congress as an estu-
ary of national significance. It
contains more than 1,400
native species of plants and
animals.
More than 500,000 people
living in the bay area use the
waters for business and recre-
ation. According to the Est-
uary Program office, the Bay
supports 50 water-dependent
industries.
They have a "strong
dependence on the condition
and quality of the bay and the
Gulf of Mexico."
Tourism is the county's
largest industry.
The survey revealed that
four of every five individuals
recognize that stormwater
run-off is vital to the health of
the bay. The Estuary Program
office report is expected to
cite stormwater pollution as a
top priority for action by the
estuary partnership.
Hardened
As the area population
grows, the amount of storm-
water reaching the bay in-
creases.
Current development
practices harden surfaces and
make them more compact.
This encourages run-off, ac-


cording to the Estuary Pro-
gram office. It reports that
nitrogen pollution from
wastewater has declined in
recent years. As a conse-
quence, stormwater loading
accounts for 61 percent of the
nitrogen carried to the bay.
Still the principal pollutant
concern in Sarasota Bay,
nitrogen has been reduced by
an estimated 50 percent since
1988, the Esturary Program
office reports. But its levels
remain more than twice what
they were 100 years ago.
Recycling wastewater, re-
placing septic tanks and con-
serving water appear to be
the principal ways to reduce
nitrogen levels. Litter, trash,
pesticides and fertilizers, all
byproducts of everyday hu-
man life, reach the bay in the
form of stormwater run-off,
according to the Estuary
Program office.
Exploring the relationship
of water quality pollution and
red tide has been a priority of
the Estuary Program for sev-
eral years.
It sponsored a study by the
Mote Marine Laboratory that
discovered a connection
between rainfall and out-
breaks of red tide.
Some speculated at the
time that nutrients were
intensifying, and prolonging
red tide along the coast, arid
that coastal pollution was
triggering the condition.


Trailheads to spring up all over


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


With bicycling and hiking
enthusiasts already flocking
to the almost-completed first
phase of the Venice-to-Sara-
sota trail, a proposed amend-
ment to the Nokomis revital-
ization plan seeks to establish
a trailhead access at the No-
komis community park.
The trailhead would
include restrooms and other
amenities.
Trailheads are also plan-
ned at theVenice Train Depot,
Patriots Park, the Laurel Com-
munity Center and park, Bay
Street in Osprey, Oscar Scher-
er State Park and, possibly,
Venetia Bay Park, according
to R. Terry Gilbert, Sarasota
county manager of policies
and projects.
The trail "may not yet be
perfect for every biker," said
Gilbert. "But the crushed shell
surface doesn't seem to have
slowed down anyone yet."
The trail currently has a 2-
inch-deep surface that is 12
feet wide. It will be succeeded
by a paved asphalt roadway
along the entire length, start-
ing a quarter-mile south of
the Sawyer Loop in Sarasota
along the former Seminole.
Gulf Railway. Temporary
decking has been placed over
six of the eight trestles on the
route.
Trestles on the bridges over
Dona and Roberts bays will
be repaired or replaced in the
second phase of construc-
tion, scheduled for comple- i;
tion by December 2006. The;
bridges range in length from

Golfers '"17
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
S 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
S that seems to come with a short swing. If this
compensatory action cannot be controlled, golfers
may be trading one problem for another.

Landscaping and addi-

cent neighborhoods will be
completed in the third phase,
which remains unscheduled
and unfunded.
Horsing around?
The Nokomis trailhead is
expected to initiate the up-
grading of the community's
recreational system. It would
improve access between ex-
isting parks, waterway wood-
en overlooks on Shakett and
Curry Creeks, trail crossings
at Laurel Road and Colonia
Lane and the Venetian Wat-
erway Park. Part of the railway
corridor in the industrial area
of Colonia Lane is now used
for parking.
The revitalization plan
calls for installing flashing
lights, paver brick and stop
signs at pedestrian crossings
to alert motorists of the pres-


ence of walkers.
Two requests by residents
are being considered by the
county.
One is to add equestrian
trails to the recreational trail
project. The second is to
reconstruct the railroad tres-
tle over Shakett Creek to
improve boating access.
Funding to create the pro-
posed trailhead access to the
Venice-to-Sarasota trail will
originate with the state and
the county. The Florida infra-
structure surtax, the'Florida
Greenways and Trails Pro-
gram and neighborhood
grants from the county are
expected to provide most of
the money.
But Gilbert said that the
private sector could be an
additional source. He predict-
ed that box-lunch and small
restaurant operations would
be interested in trailhead
locations.

vary for students.
Next year Riverview High
students will see an addition-
al 45 minutes, while Pine
View School and Venice High
will see only 15 minutes in
additional classroom instruc-
tion.
North Port High will add
25 minutes; Booker High 20
minutes, Sarasota High and
Cyesis (a Sarasota school for
teens with children) 30 min-
utes.
30 minutes redefined
District officials say the
variation is because some
schools already had a longer
student day to begin with and
thus didn't need to extend
class time to meet the dis-
trict's definition of a longer
standardized school day.
"We're moving to a 6-hour,
45-minute student day," said
associate superintendent
Lori White. "Some schools
already had a longer day."
In addition to the 6-hour,
45-minute student day for
all schools beginning next
school year, there are 45 addi-
tional minutes for teachers -
15 minutes for planning and
30 minutes for supervisory
duties bringing the total
school day up to 7 hours and


30 minutes for teachers.
All teachers will be paid for
the additional time because
all are working 30 minutes
longer under a negotiated
agreement with Sarasota
Classified/Teachers Associ-
ation. It was reached prior to
the March referendum vote.
"It may not have been
apparent that some students
were already going to a school
with a longer day. It wasn't
our intent to have confusion
... simply to move everyone
to a 6-hour, 45-minute day,"
,White said.
Schools that already had
6-hour, 45-minute student
days were notified early on
their school might not have to
be extended the entire 30
minutes, White said.
Other schools had their 30
minutes cut back to accom-
modate a complicated pupil
transportation schedule.
School board member
Laura Benson, the lone vote
against passing the new
school start and end times,
said she was aware that some
schools wouldn't gain the
entire 30-minute extension.
Benson said she voted
against the. new school
schedule last month not
because some of the schools


weren't gaining the entire 30
minutes, but because a num-
ber of middle schools would-
n't get out until after 4 p.m.
"I assumed there would be
high schools with an 'addi-
tional 30 minutes here or 25
minutes there," Benson said.
"All that was designed to miti-
gate the transportation costs.
That's why I voted against the
longer day at middle schools.
I don't think transportation
should drive instruction."
Less than 30
VHS assistant principal
Ron DiPillo said the school's
block schedule may be one of
those affected by transporta-
tion issues.
"It's out of our control,"
DiPillo said.
Venice High still hasn't
decided how it will spend the
additional 15 minutes of
classroom instruction next
school year, but DiPillo said
he thinks a solution that will
pass muster with staff and
district administrators is to
add a few minutes to each of
the school's four classes each
day.
"It's still up for debate," he
said.
He points to a new state
law affecting high schools


that requires 90 minutes
every day of intensive reading
for students who perform at
the lowest levels. The law
passed late in the legislative
session.
Venice High is expected to
make a decision by July.

improvement over the initial
proposal.
"The second plan, even
though we lost the retail and
office space, we still believe it
will generate the activity
needed for downtown,"
Miller said. "The architecture,
you're going to say, 'Wow.'"
'Different approach'
City Manager Marty Black
met with Miller and
Waterford representatives last
Tuesdayto discuss the revised
plans.
A workshop, which would
include public comment, is
planned for the June 13 city
council meeting. However,
That \ill not become official


until later this week and the
date could change, Black said.
Once a few software issues
are worked out, the concept
plans will be posted on the
city's Web site in Adobe PDF
format. Black said he wants as
many residents as possible to
see the plans in advance in
order to promote discussion.
One improvement is the
detailed designs of the
condo-hotels. For the city
manager, it clearly shows the
units will be for visitors to
Venice.
Some critics feared the
condo-hotels would actually
be used as permanent hous-
ing instead of promoting
tourism -


"This is a completely dif-
ferent type of approach. ... It
appears to be a lot less mas-
sive," Black said.
"This is not going to be a
condominium project. It
helped me to see the level of
detail. These really would be
rental units."
No decisions will be made
at the June 13 workshop.
Waterford and Miller asked
for the workshop so the pub-
lic can state what the future
look of downtown Venice
needs to be.
And that's the real goal,
Black said.
"The biggest issue are the
types of uses," Black said.
What should be there?"

More than 30
Riverview High took a dif-
ferent, approach to extending
the school day.
Faced with the question-
able benefit of adding a few
short minutes to its classes,
principal Linda Nook asked
for even more time.
Nook approached the dis-
trict and requested 45 addi-
tional minutes. Not only that,
but teachers at the school
agreed to the extra time with-
out pay. It required a special
vote by school staff because
the negotiated agreement
stipulates a work day not to
exceed 7 1/2 hours.
"We decided that 30 min-
utes really didn't help us. In
order for it to work we needed
45 minutes. With the addi-
tional time we developed a
modified block schedule. It
basically adds another period
to the school day."
Next year Riverview High
will move from seven 50-


minute classes to eight. 45-
minute classes, with some
combined to form longer
blocks of time to accommo-
date the 90-minute reading
requirement and other needs.
"What this means," said
Nook, "is students can (essen-
tially) take up to two more
classes each day (compared
to last year). And students
who take 90 minutes of read-
ing or take band, for example,
won't lose two electives."
"We're really excited. We
knew we would need to add
additional reading (time)
because of the new high
school requirement, so we
may as well maximize oppor-
tunities for all kids."
Benson said she was sur-
prised at Nooks request but
supports the change.
"She's absolutely doing the
right thing."

County recaps watering rules
Rain has been trickling into Sarasota County,
but officials want residents to know that the
unincorporated areas of Sarasota County remain
under once-a-week landscape and irrigation water
restrictions, and Code Enforcement personnel will
be issuing notices to water restriction violators.
The following is a review of those restrictions,
which apply whether the source of water is a well,
pond, or from a utility system:
Even addresses (house numbers ending with 0, 2,
4, 6 or 8) may water only on Tuesdays.
Odd addresses (house numbers ending with 1, 3,
5,7 or 9) may water only Sundays.
No irrigation is allowed between 10 a.m. and
4 p.m.
The maximum amount of water applied is limited
to three-quarters of an inch in each irrigation
zone, once, on each allowable watering day.
Flower beds, vegetable gardens and other non-
lawn areas may be irrigated as needed using a
hand-watering device with a shut-off nozzle. These,
areas may also be watered using micro-irrigation
and other forms of horticulture appropriate, low-
volume irrigation, on any day of the week.
Newly planted lawn and landscape areas may
be watered any day of the week for a 60-day
establishment period that begins the day that the
plant material is installed. However, no irrigation is
permitted between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
To report violations of these water restrictions,
residents should contact Sarasota County Utilities
Customer Service at 861-6790 with the time and
date of the alleged violation.
For more information about watering restrictions
or to report watering violations, contact the Sarasota
County Call Center at 861-5000 and ask for Utilities
Customer Service.

Wildlife regulations may take a year to adopt


Sarasota County policies to protect threatened
species don't include enforcement provisions,
and changes to land development regulations
and codes require a tedious adoption process.


BYJACKGAURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Gopher tortoises, indigo
snakes, fox squirrels and
threatened wildlife species in
the path of developers' bull-
dozers will remain at risk-for
at least another year unless
Sarasota County expedites
changes to land development
regulations and earth moving
codes.
On May 24, a timetable for
new wildlife protection rules
was discussed in an e-mail
letter written by Amy Meese,
the county's natural resources
general manager.
It describes a two-fold
process that could extend
into the middle of 2007, or
even later.
"The earth-moving code
revision will be brought to the
(county commission) this fall
for authorization to be adver-
tised and scheduled for pub-
lic hearing in early winter,"


she wrote. "We chose this
time frame for several rea-
sons."
Meese explained there are
two obstacles to moving
expeditiously with rules
changes.
The first is that compre-
hensive plan policy revisions
to protect wildlife are under
review by state authorities
and will not go into effect
until July.
"The other consideration
is that in July many of our sea-
sonal residents will be out of
the area," she continued. "In
the past, the county has
received negative feedback
for enacting major code&
amendments when a sub-
stantial portion of our popu-
lation is not in town."
Meese's letter also stated
that county land develop-
ment regulation changes
drafted by another division of
local government planning
and development services -


would not be submitted for
the commission's considera-
tion until sometime next year.
Urgency
There is an urgency among
several commissioners to
close loopholes in the coun-
ty's wildlife protection rules
that allow threatened species
to be killed.
"Why a year and a half, or
is this accurate?" Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton asked
Meese in an
e-mail letter
that initiated
her reply.
Florida's
policy of sell- .
ing permits to
developers so
they can suf-
focate gopher Thaxton
tortoises and
other threat-
ened wildlife by burying
them alive with bulldozers
has caught up with local offi-
cials who can't explain why
county rules allow such a
practice.
Last week, county com-
missioners struggled with
the embarrassing revelation
when a Venice area developer


- who has a state permit to
kill more than 250 gopher tor-
toise' appeared with a
rezoning petition to expand
the project known as
"Tuscano" by another 42
acres.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
officials allow the "taking" of
gopher tortoises under rules
established in 1991 that deal
with their habitat on project
sites.
In the agency's unique lex-
icon, "take" is a politically cor-
rect word for "kill."
Policy documents down-
loaded from the agency's Web
site describe permits that
allow "taking" or "entomb-
ment" or "killing" gopher tor-
toises provided "adequate
compensatory" habitat for
the animals is preserved and
managed somewhere else.
Novelist and syndicated
newspaper columnist Carl
Hiaasen reported on Florida
wildlife permits to kill gopher'
tortoises and the Tuscano
project in a recent edition of
the Miami Herald. Details
were reprinted in newspapers
throughout the state and
country.


There is such a thing as a free lunch


At least, there is for your kids if you live in an area
in which at least 50 percent of the children quali-
fy for free or reduced-priced meals.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Free lunch will be offered
for a limited time over the
summer for all children in
certain areas of South County,
It's part of the Summer
Food Service Program be-
ing provided by the Sara-
sota County School District
through the U.S. Department
of Agriculture.
Similar to the National
SSchool Lunch Program, it
provides nutritionally bal-
anced meals to needy chil-
dren in areas the government
deems low income.
The program is designed
to feed students attending
summer school in selected
areas, but any children in the
surrounding area regard-
less of their family's income
-can get a free lunch at
"open sites," even if they're
not enrolled in summer
school.

Film task force.


gets broad advice


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Luring production compa-
nies to shoot feature films,
documentaries, commercials,
infomercials and anything in
between would be a good
economic boost to the local
economy, but a film commis-
sion could also broaden the
economic base of the com-
munity as well.
These thoughts were at the
heart of the first meeting of
the Tourist Development
County Film Task Force Wed-
nesday as they heard from
Hollywood professionals and
local producers who call Sara-
sota County home.
The task force was created
to explore the options of cre-
ating a film commission that
could attract the big produc-
tion companies while sup-
porting the burgeoning ones
that already abound locally.
Tony Swain, who serves on
the Tourist Development
Council, chaired the meeting
and started off by saying that
in the past five years, the film
industry had brought in
about $17.5 million into the
economy.
The task force is charged
with reporting to the TDC and
county commissioners about
the options of creating a com-
mission. It will offer recom-
mendations about how it
would operate, how much it
would cost and what staffing
would be needed.
Robert Mendel, a location
manager based in Hollywood,
offered tips on where to find
the information the task force
needs to create a strong film
commission.
He named Web sites that
could provide insight and an
insider look at what to expect.
"In your first year, you will
need a location scout and
photographer to go out and
find the places that we are
looking for," Mendel said.
"You. really need to plow
before you plant."
Breaks needed
One community he noted
that had a long-lasting impact


from a movie was Santa
Barbara County, Calif., where
the film "Sideways" was shot.
The award-wining film in-
cludes a tour of wineries, and
the Santa Barbara tourism
Web site now offers tips on
going on a similar tour.
Several local production
company representatives
stressed that no matter what a
film commission would
attract from the outside, there
needs to be a support-system
in place for local companies.
"We are on our own," said
Clint Weldon of Soundstage 1
Production Co. "We need a
real inventory of local re-
sources. We have a lot of local
talent."
Others suggested the
county needs to support the
industry by permitting and
possibly tax breaks to make
the area easier to work in, say-
ing there were dozens of pro-
duction companies that call
the area home.
Location shoots
Pat Scruggs of Scruggs &
Associates LLC was hired as a
consultant and offered a sur-
vey of film and video offices
around Florida and the coun-
try to see what would be
needed to get one in Sarasota
going again.
She found that most have
one or two staffers; the bud-
get range was between
$100,000 and $175,000; and
most did not-rely on the fea-
ture film industry to generate
money. Commercials and
television programs were the
main sources.
The trackable economic
impact ranged from $1 mil-
lion to $10 million per year.
Some communities said the
impact reached beyond $100
million when they took into
account the ripple effect on
the,local economy.
The thing that was most
common is that a large por-
tion of the money went into
creating a location library
to show potential scouts
through photos what the area
has to offer.

Early detection and treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is important in stopping the
progression of this debilitating syndrome, and yet some of the early symptoms can be easily
mistaken for other issues.
The first symptom people usually notice is that their hand and fingers become numb and.
tingling while they are sleeping causing them to wake up frequently during the night. Most
people do not realize that this is a symptom of CTS and attribute the numb feeling to sleep-
ing on their hands in an awkward position.
If you are experiencing a combination of any of these symptoms, you may be in the early
stages of CTS. Early diagnosis and treatment by an occupational or physical therapist can
prevent the progression and reverse the symptoms of CTS. Jorda Redhead, OTR/L

Workshops on June on
Master Trail Plan
Sarasota County Public
Works will hold four public
workshops in June on the
final draft of the Sarasota
County Master Trail Plan.
The plan calls for the
development of a countywide
trail system over the next 20
years.
Major components'of the
plan include a system of both
land and water trails, and
connections among major
recreational areas, environ-
mental areas, residential.
areas, commercial and em-
ployment centers and public
transportation.


The master plan provides
trails for pedestrians, bicy-
clists nonmotorizedd), eques-
trians, canoeists and kayak-
ers, with minimal interaction
between the trails and public
or private roads.
At each workshop, displays
of the plan will be exhibited,
along with information about
the county's Environmentally
Sensitive Lands Protection
Program, Parks and Recrea-
tion and the Neighborhood
Grants program. County staff
will be available to answer
questions.
No formal presentations
are scheduled; residents can
attend at their convenience
anytime during the work-
shops. Residents' comments
on the plan will be incorpo-
,rated into the final draft that
will be presented to the Board
of County Commissioners for
adoption.
The same information will
be available at each of the
four workshops, which will be
held from 4;30-7 p.m.:

resistant, and how to mini-
mize damage should a wild-
fire occur, at a Firewise
Workshop Thursday, June 15.
The workshop will be held
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m in the


Green Meeting Room of the
Twin Lakes Park Green
Building, 6700 Clark Road,
Sarasota.
The national Firewise
Communities program is a
multi-agency effort designed
to reach beyond the fire ser-
vice by involving homeown-
ers, community leaders, plan-
ners, developers and others
in the effort to protect people,
property and natural re-
sources from the risk of wild-
land fire before a fire starts.
The Firewise Communities
approach emphasizes com-
munity responsibility for
planning in the design of a
safe community as well as
effective emergency re-

OUR VIEW



Conservation is a battle we can't afford to lose


udos to the Sarasota County officials
who recently took a gutsy stand in
favor of preserving our endangered
tree canopy, regulating the rampant misuse
of fertilizer and quashing the rezoning peti-
tion of a so-called "eco-friendly" subdivision
that strongly appeared to be anything but.
In this time of unlicensed landscapers
and real estate developers snatching up
nearly every piece of vacant property, it is
reassuring to see that those entrusted with
overseeing the public good are earning their
keep and making their mark. Witness the
strides they made recently:
Demetra McBride, county manager of
the Division of Urban Forestry, said tree
trimmers must be regulated because they
carelessly assault trees with little regard for
the consequences. Their irresponsible ac-
tions, she asserted, including not properly
cleaning trimmers, have contributed to the
spread of citrus canker.
Sarasota County Commissioner Paul
Mercier agreed the county must be more


aggressive in regulating such bad business
practices, adding that education is not
enough. He championed licensing, because
like so many of us he's seen trimmers swarm
into an unsuspecting neighborhood and
take out a tree before anyone can stop
them.
Fellow Commissioner Jon Thaxton be-
lieves the board should adopt new stan-
dards, since there is currently no incentive
for tree trimmers to act in any kind of envi-
ronmentally sensitive way. He maintained
that preserving the urban canopy is vital,
because we simply cannot plant enough
trees to replace the precious ones being
lost.
Some key provisions of the plan sup-
ported by the board included:
Recognizing the urban forest as a func-
tional infrastructure element.
Looking into incentive options for de-
velopers.
Codifying trimming rules.
Improving links with code enforce-


ment.
Proposing


a shaded parking lot ordi-


nance.
Expanding education efforts.
Commissioners didn't stop there. A pro-
posal to consider regulating the use of fer-
tilizers ignited their interest as they learned
from county staffers, experts from the Sierra
Club, state environmental officials, and
concerned residents about potential haz-
ards to the water system.
After a spirited discussion, the board
directed its staff to explore options to con-
trol the use of fertilizers through education
and regulation.
Tom Burish, executive director of the
Florida Landscape Maintenance Associ-
ation, complained that his industry is al-
ready "regulated to death" and said edu-
cation was the best way to solve any
issues.
Thaxton shot back that he didn't see how-
the county would ever clean its waterways
without regulation. He received strong


board support to have staff focus on regu-
lating the use of quick-release fertilizers
during the rainy season and the use of any
fertilizers near waterways.
The board also demanded regular up-
dates on the progress of establishing a for-
mal ordinance and guidelines.
Finally a revised, so-called "eco-friendly"
petition for a subdivision that would have
encroached upon the Manasota Scrub
Preserve was nipped in the bud. Our com-
missioners unanimously struck down a
rezoning petition that would have balloon-
ed the number of potential homes in the
pristine pine and scrub flatwoods from two
to nine.
We applaud these decisions and encour-
age them not to stop there.
Standing up to the incursion of reckless,
unlicensed landscapers; unregulated use of
fertilizers; and profit-hungry land devel-
opers ensures the protection and preserva-
tion of our irreplaceable tree canopy for
generations to come.


A bit like



lovebugs


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


Is there anything out there
that is like the hoards of love-
bugs?
The only thing that seems
similar to lovebugs is swarm-
ing politicians. Right now we
have the largest crop of po-
liticians, running for a very
wide variety of positions from
U.S. Senator to Charter Re-
view Board and city council. It
is the biggest group since the
last big lovebug infestation.
They are swarming at any
gathering with more than 10
people. Like lovebugs, they
are trying to get the public to
fall in love with them.
It is interesting talking to
many of these wannabe elect-
ed officials. If they have been
successful in raising money,
that is usually the first thing
they want to tell you about.
For them it carries some
significance. In a world of
politics where votes truly can
be bought, it shows they can
buy the most. It also shows
they are connected to mon-
ey; maybe they even have
influence.
Hopefully they aren't influ-
enced by gifts. I am sure no
one gives money to a candi-
date hoping he or she will
remember the gift come vote
time. Yeah, right.
The money raising, so say
many candidates, shows that
they are liked and that peo-
ple like their ideas and how
they are going to take action.
It may also show they are
good organizers, which is
important, and it could show
they know how to raise
money, which could translate
to getting money for their
district.
It could, of course, mean
they know rich people.
Bob Mudge and I were
talking to Christine Jennings,
who is running for Congress.
We had an engaging talk
about a lot of the issues.
She pretty much talks the
party line of the Democratic
Party. I commented that I
think the public is tired of
politicians mouthing the
party line, always voting
according to what the leader-
ship wants and not repre-


senting their constituents I
or, for that matter, even their
own individual beliefs. But
worse than' that, not much
gets done because the parties
do not work together for fear
of their idea not being cho-
sen.
Christine indicated that
this will be changed when
the Democrats get in office
-that they want to be con-
sensus builders and be in- ;
clsiqoary. I cereal d have
heard that a few timns.
I reminded her that the -
Democrats ruled Congress for
decades and were as one-
sided as the current Repub-
lican-controlled Congress is,
if not more so.
She thinks this group
would be different. I seriously LETTERS FROM OU
doubt it. The public would
like to know what prospec-
tive politicians are going to
do differently to break this
mold. Boards

Red tide? We don't even
want to go there, as Sarasota
County Commissioners are
aggressively campaigning
against fertilizer runoff and
should include pesticide
runoff as well.
The Bush Administration
has censored from the gener-
al public information about
the environment, to keep it in


the dark about the environ-
ment destruction his admin-
istration promotes through
human overpopulation,
which has already created a
public health hazard via pol-
lution.
Environmental groups
across this nation are not only
suing the federal government
but are eyeballing state and
county governments for their
role in the pollution of our
beaches.
Next on our agenda will
be to sue the federal govern-
ment for misappropriation
of funds, as 73 million baby
boomers are entering retire-
ment age and the Bush
Administration does not
have' a clue who to pass the
debt onto next.
The federal government
broke its promise to the great-
est generation of this nation,
who contributed most to the
protection of our environ-
ment, as well as our financ-
ial future, and who now
demand accountability at all
levels of government.

Congressmen can do no
wrong.
We have a two-tiered sys-.


tem in the USA, one for the
congressional politicians and
what the rest of us have.
A multi-re-elected con-
gressman was caught on tape
taking a bribe. This prompt-
ed the FBI to raid his office
and take his files. In the
freezer they found $100,000
in cash in $100 bills wrapped
in freezer paper.
The congressman and the
congressional bigwigs are in
an uproar about the raid.
They say it was unconsti-
tutional to raid his office be-
cause all congression mem-
bers have immunity.
What a joke! When did
they pass this law? The pol-
iticians sure know how to
protect themselves.
The accused congressman
won't resign; he says he's
innocent and may sue the
FBI for illegal entry. That
sounds par for the course.
What do you think would
happen to any person in a
similar situation? He would
end up in jail, rightfully so.
The case again illustrates
the importance of term limits
in office. The politicians will
never vote for it. They like
life terms as long as they get
the funds for re-election.
Can you blame them?
They have it all the best
medical and prescription
plans, good pay and benefits,
a lot of time off with pay, the
best retirement available -
and they want to keep it that
way.
Our only recourse is to
vote them out, send them
back home.

The beach is not a.

Dirty beaches. When I walk the beach at daybreak, as part
of the turtle patrol that looks for new nests, I carry a plastic
bag to take away the beer bottles and soda cans that litter the
beach. Today there were two soiled diapers. Why would par-
ents want to leave dirty diapers on the beach where their
children play? On the same small stretch of beach, I saw
three piles of dog feces. When I told the couple who were
walking their dog on a leash that dogs we're not allowed on
the beach, their answer was that they were on their way to the
dog park. To them, that seemed to make sense, an illogical
statement. We all need to work together to keep our beaches
clean.

Crazy driver. Around 6:45
on Saturday, we were going
along Venice Avenue toward
the beach. A crazy man cut in
front of us and he almost hit
us. We were going 20 miles,
the speed limit. He was go-
ing around 30-35. He went
through the red light on
Harbor Drive. When we got
to the jetty and sat for about
five minutes, we heard a
crash and, lo and behold, the
man was at it again and he
knocked down one of the
three posts that surround the
light. He then decided to turn
around, so he pulled into a
space and almost ran over
three people who' had to
jump out of the way. I felt
sorry for the other three peo-
ple in the car. I don't know if
he was drinking or some-
thing. I wish I could have
gotten his license number.
SCaspersen conditions. This
is in regard to the different
critical calls I've seen about
annexing Caspersen Beach. I
would like to know, and have
set forth in the newspaper,
what the conditions were for
Mr. Caspersen's donation of
that piece of beach to the
county. What were the condi-

that will provide shade, green-

We especially want to
thank David Godson, who
supervised this project, and
in spite of interruption from

the project in a very timely

The county's tree program

our county for years to come.
Thank you again for your

Babe's Kiwanis still unbeaten


CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR



VHS loses

both swim

coaches

It looks like it will be
another busy summer. of
finding coaches for Venice
High athletics director Larry
Sandburg.
Swimming has lost both
of its coaches. Debbie
Tweedie has relocated to
the Melbourne area. Danielle
Tanaka has a baby at home
to take care of.
Also, we hear that girls
soccer coach Joe Ferretti
may not be returning. The
Lady Indians had the best
season in their history in
2005-06. Ferretti has landed
a new job at Hazeltine and
time may be hard to come
by.

The Venice Sports Hall of
Fame was a success with
everyone enjoying Thursday
night's induction banquet at
Bogey's.
Lou Giovanini, Bert Miller
and Brian Wheatley were
warmly received by the
crowd and very thankful to
be included on the "Wall of
Fame" at Bogey's.
SThe selection committee
has a few months to breathe
easy before taking on the
tagk of considering who
should be a part of the Class
of2007.
There are no doubt doz-
ens of worthy candidates
out there.
One that jumps out is
Terry Tritschler, who has
spent decades teaching kids
baseball with the Venice
Little League.
Rich Carroll Sr. has also
been with VLL for many
moons and has been instru-
mental in the formation of
the Challenger Division for
handicapped kids. He also
collects bicycles each Christ-
mas for needy kids.
Wayne Garbrandt is view-
ed as one pioneering soccer
in the Venice area. Soccer
has grown into a pretty big
deal now in the Venice
area.
Speaking of pioneers,
Grady Hough was the first of
three generations to excel at
sports at Venice High. He
was a three-sport star back
in the early '50s.
There are many others,
many who still are in the
midst of impressive careers.
We'll see what happens. It
should be interesting.
* *
The talk of moving the
Venice High campus off the
island is ludicrous.
From the sports angle,
Venice has a still new base-
ball/softball complex that
has to be one of the tops in
the country.
Throw in a wellness cen-
ter that hopefully will finally
get kick-started later this
year, and you'll have another
jewel.
Plus, they just built the
brand new Venice Elemen-
tary. If they were going to
move one school, why
wouldn't they move both?
It would be a great waste
of money to move the high
school off the island.
Besides, diversity is good.
All high-rise condos are bad
to the bone.

There are two Venice Little
League teams still unbeaten
in the Sarasota County Cup
Tournament Babe's Hard-
ware and Kiwanis.
Each improved to 2-0
with victories Saturday at
Twin Lakes Park.
Babe's Hardware defeated
fellow Venice Little League
squad Lawyers, 4-0.
Babe's advances to a win-
ners' bracket game at 7:30
p.m. Tuesday against the
Sarasota Twins, who are
managed by former Venice
High star and Major Leaguer
Mark Guthrie.
Mason Bo was key in the
win over Lawyers, as he
pitched a three-hit shutout.
Bo fanned eight. At the plate,
he had a pair of hits.
Juliana Cavallaro had a
single and scored the first
run in the third. Alex Elliott
also had a hit.
Dante Altieri pitched well
for Lawyers. An error in the
fifth inning opened the gates
to three unearned runs.
Kiwanis won a 7-6 thriller
over the Sarasota Cardinals


Saturday. Tyson Albert
scored the winning run on a
bunt single by Chris Ridley.
Ridley was also the winning
pitcher. Michael Knott was 3-
for-4 with two doubles and
Josh Grubbs had a double
and single.
A.G. Edwards dropped
from the winners' bracket
with a 5-2 loss to the Sarasota
Nationals.
The Nationals will play
Kiwanis at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Venice Nokomis Rotary
coasted in its tourney open-
er Friday, 14-4, over the
North Port Blue Jays. Then
on the next day, the Sara-
sota Cubs blanked VNR 10-0.
VNR heads to the losers'
bracket.
In losers' bracket action
Saturday, the Doctors re-
bounded with a 9-3 victory
over the North Port Blue
Jays.
Nationwide eliminated the
Sarasota As, 13-8.
The Dentists won by for-
feit over 941 Kustoms of
Englewood.
Losers' bracket games
continue Monday night.
Winners' bracket kicks back
into action Tuesday night.


Babe's third baseman Juliana Cavallaro is ready for anything
that comes her way.

British Open Pub, Plantation back LPGA event


KEN HAGGERTY
GOLF COLUMNIST


It may be taking place
more than 20 miles from
Venice, but this year's annual
LPGA Teaching and Club
Professional Southeast Sec-
tion Mixed Team Champion-
ship (whew, that's a title!) has
a distinctly local feel.
Teeing off this Sunday and
Monday at Sarasota's 72-par,
36-hole Laurel Oak Country
Club, Scott East, owner of the
celebrated British Open Pub
on U.S. 41 and Julie Edgar,'
Director of Instruction at
The Plantation Golf and
Country, Club, both have a
vested, but divergent, interest
in the tournament.
With over 40 professional
teaching and club pros from
as far north as the Carolina
states taking part (not to
mention their pro-am part-
ners), the emphasis on this
mixed team event (PGA
teaching pros are also invited)
is on fun.
The tourney teed off Sat-
urday with a Pro-Am Shot-
gun followed by a par-3
shoot-out and speed putting
contest, while today the sec-
ond round consists of a der-
ring-do combo of an Alter-


nate Shot on the front 9 and
a Scramble back home to
the 19th.
Lisa Wright, head golf
professional at Laurel Oak is
this year's host. According to
Wright, who has been at
Laurel for 12 years, it's simply
an opportunity for "teaching
club pros to get together
once a year.
We just hope everyone has
a great time."
She was approached by
the LPGA last Fall to host the.
event and she was only too
willing to help out, realizing
the kudos it would afford the
Laurel Oak.
Played on both the Gary
Player-designed East Course
and the Rees-Jones-designed
West Course, Laurel Oaks
provides both a gentle and
obstinate challenge.
According to Wright the
East with its open fairways
will be a romp for the ama-
teurs on Sunday. However,
on Monday, the recently-
revamped West Course will
provide the pros with plenty
of headaches.
"The West re-opened in
January of this year," Wright
says. "So this will be the first
time the majority of the
competitors have faced the
challenge."
SIt's a course that requires
strategic play, she warns.
In other words, a true
shot-making challenge and
a classic example of Jones'
oeuvre.
It's a prospect Julie Edgar,
Director of Instruction at the
Plantation Golf and Country
Club will take in her stride.
This is Julie's rookie playing
year and she's teamed up with
Keith Struble, Director of Golf
at the Plantation for Sunday's
Pro-Am.


"We're not taking it too
seriously," she laughs. "And
we certainly don't have any
thoughts about winning,
that's for sure."
But for Edgar, this week-
end is more than just a bus-
man's holiday. Added to the
playing invite, she was also
asked six months ago to be-
come part of the tourna-
ment's committee (a quintet
of local LPGA teaching pros
who combine to create the
overall package). As Edgar
and the Plantation hosted
the tourney in 2004 she
feels, "I had a great deal of
experience to bring to the
table."
Although she didn't play
that year, her behind-the-
scenes machinations saw
the Plantation offering (at
that point) the biggest purse
to date thanks to various
sponsorship deals. It's a posi-
tion she has become adept
at creating and this year has,
once again, seen Edgar talk-
ing business, and gathering
a hefty business support.
Much to her relief.
With sponsorship pack-
ages, running from $2,000 for
a Title Sponsor, to $100 for a
Hole Sponsorship, there's a
wholesome amount of cash
to flash. "It's hard work, but
it's fun," Edgar said of her
efforts. "The local business
community has this unique
chance to connect with the
local population and we've
had a great response. Of
course, the more sponsors
who become involved, the
bigger the purse. It's a win-
win situation whichever way
you look at it."
It's a sentiment not lost on
Scott East, the owner of the
British Open Pub on US 41.
Deciding the time was right


to gain a bigger golf-related
profile he finally took 'the
bait. Although not a golfer
himself (he's a died-in-the-
wool angler), East and his
partner Danielle Clary were
offered the opportunity to
sponsor, a hole during the
championship. It had been a
long time coming. Realizing
the publicity could bring
even more customers
through the doors of the
amiable bar, both were keen
to become part of the pack-
age.
However, East has owned
the bar and restaurant for
three years now. And, as this
is his first foray into the
world of golf sponsorship,
the question is, why the
wait? Talking to him, sur-
rounded by the bar's golf
memorabilia, the Gainesville
native was quick to point out
the reason for the apparent
oversight. Quite simply, no-
one thought of it.
"We've always sponsored
local events," he said. But
strangely, considering our
name, no-one has ever ap-
proached us to sponsor a
golf-related event."
This time, though, he and
Clary jumped at the oppor-
tunity. "One of our customers
is a rep for the tourney and
he offered us the chance to
become involved. We're well
known in Venice and be-
yond," he said. "In fact we
have regulars from Braden-
ton turning up to eat here.
But we thought it was about
time to extend our customer
base even further."
While there will be plenty
of back-slapping and beer
buggy stops Sunday and
Monday, as far as East is con-
cerned, it's all about "taking
care of business."


He knows, as do all the
other sponsors, that thanks to
those unsung heroes of the
driving ranges who cure
hooks and slices, there could
be plenty of fun in the sun
this summertime.

A properly fitted bra.


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER
Millions of women across the
globe are unknowingly wearing
the wrong bra.
Wearing the wrong bra can
cause more problems than a 2-
year-old in a china shop. The
straps fall down; the back rides
up; the wires poke in places best
left unmentioned; and worst of
all, it can push on the chest so
tightly that it makes another set
of breasts.
I have fitted women for bras
for 12 years, and I know that bras
are a source of frustration for
many women. Every woman
wants the right bra, but for some
reason, they still aren't wearing
the correct one.
Wearing the wrong bra is a
common topic on TV talk shows.
Every now and again, "The Oprah
Winfrey Show" or the "The View"
will have a consultant on their
respective shows telling women
how to find and wear the right
bra. These consultants usually
have good advice for finding the
right bra. The shows stimulate an
interest among women to find
the right bra fit for them, and
droves of them come piling into
retailers hopeful that they will
find the right one.
A good bra fit consists of a
measurement of the chest and
bust. Many vendors and talk
show consultants will tell women
that a measurement across the

The back of your bra sits above
your shoulder blades,

your bra, or there is spillage.

tom of your bra.

ing you.

between your chest and your bra.

chest, under the breasts is signifi-
cant enough for a sound mea-
surement.
I disagree.
In order to have a proper fit, it
is necessary to double check the
measurement around the lower
part of the ribcage with a mea-
surement across the top part of
the chest. If there is a significant
difference between the two num-
bers, such as 2 inches or more, a
woman might need a different
size to accommodate the differ-
ence.
After the chest is measured,
another measurement across the
fullest point of the bust is taken.
This number is then subtracted
from the first measurement. The
difference determines the cup
size. An A cup would be I inch, a
B cup would be 2 inches, a C cup


would be 3 inches, and so on.
It is after taking this measure-
ment that most retailers fail their
customers. I have found that this
formula for finding the right bra
is merely a guide or a starting-off
point. To have a proper fit, sever-
al different types of bras must be
tried on to find the one that is
best for the woman's body. This
process usually takes time, so
allowing plenty of time for bra
shopping is advisable.
Women's bodies are all different,
and this includes breasts. Some
women can be the same size
numerically, but each one might
need a completely different bra.
For example, one woman might
need to wear a full coverage bra
because her breasts are more
rounded, while another woman of
the same size will be more com-
fortable in a demi bra because of
where her breasts sit on her chest It
is necessary for women to try on a
variety of different styles before
deciding on the right one for.her
individual figure.
If the store selling the bras has
a certified bra fitter on site, most
times they will offer a compli-
mentary bra fitting. You can ask
these fitters to check the bra for
you to see if it is fitting properly. If
the fitter is experienced, she will
not mind a quick step into the fit-
ting room with you. There is no
need to be embarrassed. They do
it all the time.
Being fitted for a bra is not easy
in most cases. Most bras are sized

by the manufacturers to fit to the
closest size. Most of the women I
have measured do not measure
at a perfect 34 B or 42 DD. Most of
the time, I have to search to find
the right bra for them, and some-
times that means a compromise.
It is important to be fitted for a
bra a couple times a year. If a
woman has lost or gained weight,
her bra size has probably
changed. This is where many
women go wrong when they are
purchasing their bras. Instead of
getting fitted after the weight
change, they believe a change in
band size is the answer, thinking
that the cup size is constant. The
cup size of a bra coincides direct-
ly with the band number. For
example, the cup on a 36 C is dif-
ferent from the cup on a 40 C.
With all this in mind, for a lot
of women, wearing the wrong bra
seems to be a source of comfort.
It never fails that women never


like the size that their measure-
ments indicate to the fitter. Even
if I argue that the right bra,
despite the size, will make clothes
look better and often make the
woman look thinner, women
always say, "There is no way I am
a double D!"
The numbers are not nego-
tiable.
The size is what it is. I like to
compare the bra size to shoe size:
You wouldn't wear a shoe that
was too big or too small for you
because it wouldn't serve its pur-
pose. A bra is no different.
Bra fitting is not an exact sci-
ence, but wearing the right bra
can make a world of difference.
Think of what it would be like if
you didn't have to adjust your bra
all day.
Better yet, breathe easy while
you think of that.

WHERE TO FIND
PLUS-SIZE BRAS
Finding plus-size bras is a prob-
lem for many women. However,
many retailers are now carrying a
variety of sizes. Lane Bryant,
Catherine's, Fashion Bug, Wal-
Mart, Target, Dillard's and Macy's
all carry up to triple Ds in their
stores. Sizes above a triple D can
be found online from Playtex and
from the Lane Bryant Catalog.

Can we keep manatees in our waters?


LARRY ALLAN
FRESH AIR COLUMNIST

Crystal River isn't much of
a drive north. My wife, June,
and I found it an easy and
pleasant trip and we were
eager to see the manatees
that gather 'round on a crisp
winter day. We made arrange-
ments for a boat and knowl-


edgeable captain to take us to
the warm springs that attract
these gentle creatures.
Manatees are affected by
cold water (they can actually
die from hypothermia, like
us), so they seek out warm
natural springs when the
water temperatures get too
low for their comfort. There-
fore, they gather around warm
springs when it's cool. We were
very pleasantly surprised to
see so many of them in one
place. They were just hanging '
out." They come up to breathe
every three to five minutes,
but they can stay submerged
for up to 20 minutes. i
These slow-moving crea-
tures are first-class grazers -7
they eat, and eat, and eat.
They can consume enough
vegetation to match 10 to 15
per cent of their 800 to 1200


pound body weight every day.
The adults average nearly 10
feet in length. The babies are
easy to spot, suckling under
the flippers of their mothers
until they reach about two
years. We were delighted by
what we saw there, but were
shocked by the horrible scars
on their backs. Every one of
them seemed to be scarred in
some way, mostly from
encounters with boats. The
manatee's preference for
slow-moving, shallow rivers
makes them particularly vul-
nerable to strikes from boats
and other watercraft.
Conservation laws prevent
people (and boats) from.
going among the manatees,
but you sure can get close.
Divers in wet suits are also
regulated, to prevent people
from interfering with the nat-


ural movements of the mana-
tees. Ropes are placed to
remind us but the manatees
swim under them easily when
they leave the warm spring to
forage for food. We thought it
was pretty canny how they
stayed within those ropes to
protect themselves from
human interference.
Manatees are slow to
reproduce. Females don't
reach sexual maturity until
about five years; males, nine
years. They only have one calf
every two to five years. That's
part of the reason they're an
endangered species, I'm sure.
A state review panel is recom-
mending manatees be down-
listed in June from their
endangered status in Florida.
A statewide aerial survey
done this year Feb. 13-15
counted only 3,116 manatees.
That's the total number seen!
Weather conditions do have
some bearing on the out-
come of surveys done by air,
but that number certainly
indicates how few manatees
we still have in our Florida
waters, even if that's not an
absolutely definitive number.
If you want to help prevent
the downlisting of manatees
from their endangered status,
contact Gov. Jeb Bush, your
local representative and your
state senator. And look at the
Web site of savethemana-
tee.org for additional ways
you can learn about, and pro-
tect, these marvelous ani-
mals. June and I want you to
have the opportunity to see
"the gathering" at warm
springs like Crystal River, too.

Groups petition Florida on

behalf of imperiled wildlife


BY PATRICK ROSE
GUEST WRITER


Conservation and animal
welfare groups from Florida
and around the nation, inc-
luding The Humane Society
of the United States, Defen-
ders of Wildlife, In Defense of
Animals, 'National Environ-
mental Trust, Environmental
Defense, Save the Manatee
Club, Animal Welfare Insti-
tute, The Ocean Conservancy,
the Florida Chapter of the
Sierra Club, and the Sea Turtle
Sfirvival League, have an-
nounced they are filing a legal
petition with the Florida Fish


&Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) urging the
state to revise its imperiled
species classification system.
Using what the petitioners
say is a flawed system, the
FWC has already downlisted
the red-cockaded woodpeck-
er despite opposition from
many scientists. If the current
classification system is not
changed, the groups fear that
many of Florida's at-risk


species, such as the manatee,
northern right whale, Florida
panther, and Florida black
bear could suffer the same
fate as the woodpecker,
resulting in less protection
and misleading the public
into thinking these species
have recovered.
Florida is rapidly being
developed, increasing the
threats to wildlife and making
not only survival, but also the
state's goal of endangered
species recovery, an enor-
mous and difficult challenge.
According to the U.S. Census
Bureau, in five years Florida
will surpass NewYork in pop-


ulation, making it the third
most populous state in the
nation.
In 1999 the FWC modified
its classification system to
incorporate the listing criteria
of the World Conservation
Union (IUCN), a world autho-
rity on endangered species,
except for one critical differ-
ence, the groups say. Modifi-

Q. My hearing aid started
sounding very noisy, so I
took it into a hearing aid
shop to have it looked at. The
man cleaned it and put in a
new battery and said it
should be fine but it still
sounds funny. Now what?
A. Even though your hearing
aid is working, it nay not be
working as it did when it was
originally manufactured. Many
people think that if their
hearing aid "whistles" when
they hold it in their hand, that
everything is working as it
should. The only thing the
whistle tells you is that your
battery is still good, and that
there is an electronic current
flowing through the instrument.
It tells you nothing about the
quality of sound the instrument
is producing. The only way to
insure that your hearing aid is
working as it was originally
meant to, is to have an
electroacoustic test performed
on it. This test will check the
operation of your hearing aid at
many different frequencies and
loudness levels. These
measures are then compared to
the measures that were taken
when the hearing aid was brand
new. The measures should be
the same. If they differ, the
hearing aid should be returned
to the manufacturer for repair.
If you feel your hearing aid is
not performing as it once did,
contact the Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. at 492-
4327 to schedule a
electroacoustic test on your
hearing aids. Then you will
know for sure it a repair is
necessary or not.

Dud came in chirping like
a squirrel the other day, mak-
ing us all .grin, 'cause as Dud
goes, so seems to go the day. If
he's happy, the trees are
happy. If he's sad, plumbing
stops working all over town.
Or at least it seems that way.
He's contagious.


"Hey Doc, guys, isn't it a
beautiful day? I woke up this
,morning and said I really
should go down and have cof-
fee at the Mule Barn and
check.to see how the guys .are
Getting along."
"You mean," said Doc, "like
you do every day?"
"Well ... yeah, I guess."
Then we gave him the
silent look. Steve glanced at
his watch. With Dudi you
don't have to ask, as he'll tell
you exactly what's up. But he
does enjoy some coaxing and
we weren't going to give it to
him. It's a little game we have
here at the philosophy
counter and world dilemma
think tank. Everyone needs a
hobby.
"Guess what, guys!" Dud
said.

"Nine seconds," said Steve.
"What?"
"Nothing. What were you
saying?"
"Well, I started back work-
ing on that book again.".
"Is that the mystery that
got rejected because it had
eight murders in the first
chapter?"
"Yep. That's the one, Doc.
But I decided to cut out some
of those murders, you know,
the way the publisher sug-
gested."
"How many?"
"I left in two murders,"
Dud said. "I really hated to cut
those others, because I realize
the need to keep the reader
on the edge of his seat. I
mean, you have to keep up
the suspense, make them
wonder what's going to hap-


pen next."
"You know, Dud," said
Steve, "if I had two murders to
think about in the first chap-
ter, I believe I'd be willing to
slog through two or',three
more chapters'to see what is
going to happen, even if
nobody died for several thou-
sand words."
"You mean, like read about
the police work and all that
clue stuff?"
"Hey, I'd hang with it that
long, yeah ..."
"So you don't think I'd need
to put in any more killings
until maybe chapter six?"
"Maybe even seven."

Yd W
VIRGINIA DEUPREE
{ i i i?. !,' ;


I asked some seniors here
at Harbor Chase what they
missed most. Ann and Fran,
both tablemates, understand-
ably missed their husbands
the most. Joanne, as I expect-
ed, missed her children -
one in California, one in New
York, one in Michigan and
one in Sarasota. I know she is
very close to them all.
But then, there was Helen
- Helen, I asked in my best
interviewing voice, 'And what
do you miss?" A swimming
pool was her prompt answer.
"I would give anything to have
a swimming pool." Well, that
would be most impractical
here for many reasons. I
would love that, too, but I

couldn't get in one if I wanted
to. Five years ago, my children
gingerly walked me into a
pool for a few minutes but
because of my troublesome
eyes, I couldn't try to swim.
Barbara, one of our won-
derful nurses, overheard me
asking this question as she
was handing out pills. "I'm
not part of this," she said, "but
do you know what I miss?"
No, said I, what? Running,
said she, running just for the
sheer joy of running. I had
completely forgotten about
running, running for the
sheer enjoyment of it. I guess
that is why people jog. I
dunno! I don't think I have
run since I played tag, geese
and fox, hide and seek, ball
games, or running just for the
sake of running in the warm
summer breeze. Oh, my! That
brought back fond memories.
The other day, I was out in
front of the building by the
fish pond, very alone, very
alone, when a lady spoke to
me. It was Lucy and I think in
fact that this column is her
idea. By then, I was all puffed
up ag she is a reader of my
column. And so, of course, I
asked Lucy what she missed.

"My dignity," she replied
without hesitation. I learned
that Lucy had been a fashion
model in New York, so the
indignities that we all experi-
ence would, I suspect, easily
bother her. When I asked her
for an example, she gave one
that is familiar to many of us.
That is ifyou go to a doctor with
a relative of a caretaker, the
doctor is likely to ask questions
of the caretaker, not to the
elderly patient. If you go in by
yourself, they talk to you like
you were an intelligent human
being. My own doctor is not
guilty of this, however.
Now this subject I can wax
eloquent on as I know a lot
about it. If I go into a doctor's
office on my walker, he says,
"Good morning, Mrs. Deu-
pree." If I go in with a caretak-
er, he asks, 'And how is Mrs.
Deupree today and what are
her symptoms?" And he will
continue to talk to the care-
taker unless I say, "Hey, I'm
still here."
No matter where you go in
a wheelchair, you suddenly
become a nonentity. The
aides here, however, are very

BY DALE MOORE
GUEST COLUMNIST

You may be surprised to
learn we do not live in a pure
democracy. "I pledge alle-
giance to the flag and to the
REPUBLIC for which it
stands." In a republic, the
people elect individuals to
wield power; in a pure
democracy the people them-
selves wield power. Being a
democracy or a republic has
nothing to do with whether
Democrats or Republicans
are in power. At the time our
nation was established, be-
cause of primitive methods of
communication, distances
across the land and the limit-
ed knowledge of some peo-
ple, the men who wrote the
Constitution wisely decided
on a republican form of gov-
ernment.
But lately one has to ques-
tion just how effectively that
form of government is oper-

Caregiving and work
A free seminar on balanc-
ing caregiving and work takes
place 9 a.m.-noon, Saturday,
June 10. The Increased Cost of
Not Caring Profitable Ways
to Support Employees Caring
for Loved Ones will provide
strategies and resources for
helping employees remain


ating. Congress used to ap-
prove a budget by July 1, but
they could never meet the
deadline so they moved it to
October 1. Guess what! They
still can't meet the deadline.
And too many of those we
elect seem to be far too busy
raising money and doing
whatever is necessary for re-
election to worry about the
national interest when they
vote. But in this age of the
Internet, TV and plane travel,
why could we not now have a
pure democracy in which
"We, the people" vote on the
budget, immigration reform,
whether we go to war, and a
host of other issues? Every
voting citizen would register
with his or her e-mail address
and password. Then when an
issue needs to be voted on, we
sign ori from our homes (for
those folks without comput-
ers, polling places would have
computers instead of voting
machines) and vote. Seems to


me we couldn't do any worse
than some of our representa-
tives, and we could save a
whole lot of money and, I
believe, a lot more people
would get involved in their
government.
Now I know that such a
dramatic change would re-
quire an amendment to the
Constitution and most of our
elected representatives feel
pretty safe (and smug) in
believing that we, the voters,
would never take such a dras-
tic step and actually strip
them of their power. Well, to
those officials I'd like to say,
(paraphrasing what my
Momma used to say) "I
brought you into this world
(of government) and I can
take you out again." Re-
member, republic or democ-
racy, the real power is "We the
people ... "You better shape
up or we might just rise up.
And that's my two cents
worth...

Historic Homes


& Gardens train tour was grand and luxe



We rock to sleep as the historic train rolls along toward Richmond


On the fourth night, passengers aboard the
American Orient Express Train, soon to be known
as Grandluxe Rail Journeys, head toward
Richmond.


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is part
four of a series.
BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
. Half-way into my second
trip aboard the American
Orient Express Train, I was
developing a new interpreta-
tion for the railroad term
"train time."
Trainmen refer to "train
time" in a "whatever will be
will be" manner. Subject to all
the train traffic out there, the
train will get there when it
gets there. Usually the arrival
time will be close to what is
predicted but not necessarily
on the dot. For travelers
aboard this vintage train, the
later the better as that means
more time on the train. The
problem I seemed to be hav-
ing was that my "train time"
was flying by too quickly. Four
days of our six-day Ante-
bellum South excursion pass-
ed in what seemed like two.
I finally made it to Sa-
vannah, sampling just
enough of that city to whet
my appetite for more. I en-
joyed my first..carriage ride
through Charleston,. a Ciry .1
have visited many times. I
manage to wend my way to
Charleston nearly every sum-
mer, always finding some-
thing more to like about that
charming Old South city. That
it is so haunted it has at least
15 ghost tours, is kind of fun
too.
But this night we were
heading north toward Rich-
mond for the final two days of
our adventure before our final
leg of journey to Washington,
D.C.
It was the best night of the
trip. We were rocking and
rolling along at about 60-70
mph, passing through little
towns along the way and also
through long stretches of
darkness when we appeared
to be going through virgin
forests. Sleeping was out of
the question. I didn't want to
miss anything, even if I could-
n't see it.
Unfortunately, the motion
got to me and before I knew it,
I was asleep, awakening only
when the train slowed as we
pulled .into the station at


Richmond.
The weather forecast was
sunny with a high of 54
degrees and a low of 30, far
different from the 80-85-de-
gree temperatures in Florida
and even the 70-75 degree
temperatures we enjoyed in
Savannah.

car. They had eaten and were
heading back to their com-
partment. We knew we had
plenty of time as meal service
is very efficient, and within 20
minutes we had downed our
eggs and toast and were ready
for our big adventure.
I had not been to Mont-
icello since college days and.
was anxious to return to that
beautiful estate that Thomas
Jefferson designed up on the
"little mountain," which in-
spired the name Monticello.
The mountain is in the center
of the 5,000-acre plantation
Jefferson inherited from his
father Peter in 1764. As many
as 150 slaves lived there with
the Jefferson family, helping
to work the farms, build the
house and care for the house
and its occupants.
Jefferson designed the
house and gardens, super-
vised its construction and
expansion, always with an eye
to its setting and its surround-
ing landscape.
A true Renaissance man, in
the manner of Leonardo
DaVinci and Walt Disney, who
each had multiple talents,
Jefferson was a statesman,
architect, inventor,
botanist/gardener, designer
of the Declaration of In-
dependence, the first secre-
tary of state and the third
president of the United States.
Monticello kept him occu-
pid for' 50 years while he
attended to his other diverse
interests and duties. Its design
was inspired by the work of
the Italian architect Andrea
Palladio's "Four Books of
Architecture," written in 1570
to promote a universal vocab-
ulary for architecture.
Work began on the Mont-
icello project in 1768 with the
leveling of the mountaintop
to create a site for the house
and the open-air living
spaces, which are part of its
plan. Initially a two-story
house, the building was trans-
formed to three stories in
1796, when he removed the
upper story, extended the east
front and created a new sec-
ond level for bedrooms within
the height of the first floor,
resulting in a 21-room house.
At that time the dome was
constructed above the west
front.

Jefferson selected nearly all
of the home's furnishings,
including the window treat-
ments, acquiring much of the
furniture and the fabrics in
France, which he often visited
as secretary of state. While 86
crates of goods came from
France, Monticello also
bought American, employing
cabinet makers in Wil-
liamsburg, Philadelphia and
New York. Many items for the
house were made on site.
Many items for the house
were Jefferson inventions too,
including a polygraph, which
he used to copy letters. The
machine is in his cabinet, or
office, on the second floor
next to his bedroom.
Jefferson designed the
entrance to be a museum that
would showcase American
ingenuity, while also display-
ing maps of the world and-
native American artifacts.
The home's parlor is where
the family and guests gath-
ered to read, chat with each
other, play games and enjoy


music. Realizing the likeli-
hood that the entire house
would one day be a museum,
and also because he was the
consummate organizer,
Jefferson cataloged the con-
tents of each room.
Our tour guide was a
retired professor and also a
graduate of the University of
Virginia, known throughout
Virginia as "The University."
When asked about his
proudest achievements, Jeff-
erson always included the
founding of the University of
Virginia as one of the achieve-
ments of which he was most
proud. It can be seen from
Monticello.
Our guide led us through
the house in a circuitous
manner, showing us the pub-
lic and private rooms on the
main floor, including Jeff-
erson's bedroom and the
book room, dining room, tea
room, north piazza and the
two guest rooms and sitting
room used by his daughter
Martha when she visited the


home. When Jefferson retired
from the presidency, Martha
moved with her family to
Monticello to look out for her
father who had been wid-
owed for 27 years in 1809.
One of the most clever
concepts Jefferson employed
in the planning for the house
was the system of pavilions at
either side of the main house,
housing "dependencies'" for
working, living and storage.
Housing such necessaries
spaces as the wash house,
dairy, slave quarters, smoke-
house and the kitchen, the
"dependencies" protected the
house from the heat and
smells from the kitchen as
well as the dampness and
steam from the wash house.
Surrounding the house are
vineyards, berry squares, the
vegetable garden, the grave-
yard, and a roundabout walk-
way. Also on the property is a
blacksmith shop/nailery, log
dwelling, carpenter shop and

'Blindfold Game' focus is on terrorists

and the man who is following them


BYTERRI SCHLICHENMEYER
GUEST COLUMNIST

Forty-some years ago, his-
torians say, the world came
terrifyingly close to nuclear
war.
The near-disaster is known
as the Cuban Missile Crisis.
For a few lump-in-the-throat
days in the fall of 1962, Soviet
missiles were, poised, just 90
miles from the coast of the
United States.
Although certain informa-
tion was made public, it's
been said that many people
never knew just how much
danger we were in.
Kind of makes you wonder
what else you don't know,
doesn't it?
In the new novel "Blindfold
Game" by Dana Stabenow,
one man knew that failure to
stop a ship full of terrorists
could mean death to hun-
dreds of thousands of people.
The problem is that few
believed him.
When the bomb went off
on Central Street in Pattaya
Beach, Thailand, most people
were too concerned about the
dead and dying to have
noticed the two men who
stood impassively, watching
chaos in the aftermath of fly-
ing glass and body parts. One
woman saw their emotionless
demeanor, which caused her
to follow them. She.took pho-
tos and information "to her
boss, Hugh Rincon of the CIA.
The pictures showed two
slight Asian men, and both
were familiar to Hugh. The
men had been under surveil-
lance by the CIA for "placing
an order" with a Russian man
'ypb,\Na, .i.11ing to selsecrets
to the U.S. for a littre"ibfra
money. The order was for a
small amount of cesium-137,
a radioactive isotope used for
cancer therapy.
And for dirty bombs.

GRAPHIC COURTESY OF
ST. MARTIN'S MINOTAUR
The evidence was there,
but Hugh's boss, the CIA
director, said that Hugh was
jumping to ill-founded con-
clusions. Still, to Hugh, it
appeared that disaster was
heading for the coast of
Alaska, a place where he grew'
up and where he still had
family.
When Hugh was .a boy, he
knew that he didn't want to
work with his father in the
family fishing business. As a
10-year-old, he heard stories
from a law officer who had
visited his school, and he was
romanced by the idea of
catching bad guys. Hugh's two
best childhood friends were
also smitten; Kyle now

Anchorage and Sara, who was
also Hugh's wife, was an exec-
utive officer with the Coast
Guard, stationed in the
Maritime Boundary Line near
Alaska.
Stationed, that is, in the
same area as the ship heading
for the coast, carrying terror-
ists, a missile launcher, and
enough radioactive material
to kill 240,000 people.
Did you ever get so eager
about a story that you read
too fast'and you have to re-
read a paragraph or two to
catch what you missed in
your excitement? That's what
it's like when you read
"Blindfold Game." The action
is tense, the characters are
realistic, and -' while I
thought the dialogue was a bit
contrived the plot line is so
plausible, it's frightening.
While "Blindfold Game" is
Dana Stabenow's first thriller,
she has lots of mysteries to
her. credit. That's good to
know, because when you're
done with this book, you're
going to want more.

Stabenow; c.2006, St. Martin's

Trail showcases Virginia's wealth of natural beauty


BY KATHY VAN MULLEKOM
GUEST WRITER


Virginia is home to about
40 varieties of ferns..But you
don't have to go to the moun-
tains or countryside to see all
those native ferns. Each kind
grows somewhere along the
5-mile-long Noland Trail in
Newport News.
The collection of ferns can
be traced back to George
Mason, a hull designer at
Newport News Shipyard (now
called Northrop Grumman
Newport News) in the early
1930s. The self-taught natu-
ralist was among the shipyard
workers who helped develop
the park, which was created
by philanthropist and railroad
tycoon Archer Huntington

and his wife Anna, a well-
known sculptor.
"He was mostly interested
in ferns, and did an analysis
of every fern in the state of
Virginia," said Harold Cones
of Mason's efforts to identify
shrubs, trees and perennials
on park property. "He found
that all but four grew in the
850-acre park, so he found
those and brought them here
to plant in the park." Mason
later completed formal stud-
ies and was named museum
forester; the park now covers
550 acres.
Cones, who is chair of the
Department of Biology,


Chemistry and Environ-
mental Science and was
recently named distinguished
professor of biology at Chris-
topher Newport University in
Newport News, talks about
Mason in his softback book
"The Mariners' Museum
Park: The Making of an Urban
Oasis." The 120-page book,
which sells for $14.95, lists
plants identified in the park
as of Nov. 29, 1934. It features
color photos of plants thriv-
ing there, and tells how Lake
Maury, the Lion's Bridge and
Deer Park came to be.
"It's a fascinating place,"
said Cones, walking the scen-


ic trail late this spring.
He should know. He's
walked it more times than he
can count, always in different
seasons, never tiring of what
newness he encounters. One
day, it may be the flower on a
grove of May apples that fruit,
then disappear until next
year. Another day, he enjoys
the perfume of the wild rose
bushes or .yellow flowers of
swamp iris that like the moist
soil along the lake's edge.
In summer, the trail is
cooler than the pavement of
nearby roadways. In fall, it's
vibrant with the colors of
orange and red leaves. It's also


home to Pine Tree Overlook
where you can see a handful
of Virginia pines, a native tree
that is no longer as abundant
as the straighter-growing
loblolly pine, according to
Cones.
Walking the trail several
times a year also helps you
appreciate lesser-known
plants, even weedy ones such
as muscadine grape, wild
strawberry and carrot, exotic
dandelion, yellow-flowering
oxalis (its leaves offer a lemo-
ny taste for salads) and bed-
straw (a square-stemmed

After the official tour, we

Back on the train, Jones

usual we were among the first

night's entree selections were
veal T-bone, Boursin cheese

and pan-'seared grouper.
Jones ordered a half-portion
of the T-bone after being told
how large it was. I ordered the
chicken because of the
Boursin cheese and was not
disappointed.
The four of us were very
good at stretching the dinner

St. Francis Animal Rescue
joins animal rescue groups
across the nation in celebrat-
ing Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat
Month in June. The month-
long celebration encourages
people to adopt a shelter cat
and helps to educate individ-
uals on the health benefits of
cat ownership. When the
stress of the world builds up,
help is just a cat-in-the-lap
away. Studies show that feline
therapy can help ease anxiety
by lowering blood pressure


and releasing "feel good"
endorphins. This year let a cat
heal your heart!
Each year thousands of
animals are killed in Sarasota
County by shelters and ani-
mal services. Most of these
pets are sweet and loving, and
are only killed because they
are too young or old, have a
treatable disease, are the
wrong color, or the shelters
have simply run out of room.
St. Francis Animal Rescue
operates a cageless, no-kill
adoption center, and at any
given time cares for more
than 400 felines that are look-
ing for a new home.
Animals at St. Francis are
available for adoption for $65
(kittens) and $60 (cats). The
adoption fee includes
FELV/FIV testing, spay or
neuter, first booster of feline
upper respiratory vaccine,
worming, flea control, and
ears checked and treated if
necessary. Special adoption
rates are available for multi-
ple adoptions or adopting a
feline through the "special
needs" program. The pro-


gram allows adoptions of cer-
tain special felines with med-
ical concerns. In this program
you provide a loving home
and food, and St. Francis pro-
vides the necessary medical
care for these select animals.
This year, help save a
homeless or abandoned ani-
mal by visiting St. Francis
Animal Rescue, 1925 South
Tamiami Trail, just south of
Seminole, or calling the
Adoption Center at 492-6200.
You can also support St.
Francis Animal Rescue by vis-
iting The Cattery Thrift Store
at 1651.South Tamiami Trail
in the Jacaranda Plaza (next
to Blockbuster) or by calling
492-6210. Hours are 9 a.m.-4
p.m., Monday through
Saturday.
Grace, oyce is St. Francis
Animal Rescue president and

Rescue is a nonprofit, no-kill

Making room for puppy: a guide for new pet parents


STAFF REPORT

Now that spring has
arrived. and, the summer
months are approaching,
many families prepare to wel-
come a new puppy into their
home. Bringing home a new
dog can be one of the most
exciting events in one's life,
however if a family isn't pre-
pared for the work and effort
it takes to be a good ptk par-
ent, frustration with their
dog's behavior may lead to
dissatisfaction.
The Humane Society
reports that one of the main
reasons dogs are returned or
relinquished to the shelter is
because the owners were not
prepared to handle the ani-
mal's behavior.
"Many pet owners don't
realize the changes they have
to make in their own sched-
ules and lives to accommo-
date for the challenges a new
puppy can present," said
David Bledsoe, DVM, Farnam
Pet Products (farnampets.
comn), and an expert on pet
behavior. "However, by taking
the necessary steps to prop-
erly welcome third new mem-
ber into their family, pet own-
ers can establish a bond with
their dogs that will ensure a
positive companionship for
many years to come."
To ensure a smooth transi-
tion for puppy and owner,
Bledsoe offers new pet par-
ents the following tips to
ensure their puppy becomes
a happy addition to their fam-


ily:
1. Puppy-proof your home:
Before the puppy arrives,
owners should do a sweep of
their home and yard and pick
up all of the things they do
not want the puppy to get
into. This will be an ongoing
effort and it's important for
pet parents to remember that
it is their responsibility to
keep the dog or puppy safe
and out of trouble. Puppies
don't know any better, so it is
up to the pet parent to make
sure the puppy is supervised
continually. Additionally, ow-
ners should purchase toys
that are durable, safe and fun.
These toys should readily be
available to quickly substitute
whenever the owner sees his
or her .puppy chewing on
. something that isn't appro-
priate.
2. Easing the stress of separa-
tion: When possible, pet own-
ers should provide their
breeder with a towel or blan-
ket that can be rubbed on the
mother dog prior to taking
the puppy home. It will con-
tain the scent of the dog and
will help comfort the puppy
during the drive home.
Additionally, owners can use
comforting pheromone pro-
ducts in their home to help
ease the puppy's transition
and make him feel comfort-
able in his new environment.
Nursing mother dogs emit
pheromones natural
chemicals secreted by the
animal to communicate with
others of the same species.


Products such as Comfort
Zone with D.A.P. (Dog
Appeasing Pheromones)
(petcomfortzone.com)
mimic the same "appeasing"
pheromones, making dogs
feel secure and comfortable,
while reducing the animal's
urge to act out destructively
through chewing, excessive
barking or house soiling. The
,clinically-tested and veteri-
narian-Tecommnended prod-"
uct comes in diffuser and
spray applications.
3. Crates an effective train-
ing tool: A crate serves as a
place for the puppy to call his
own and is a great place for
short time-outs and for sleep-
ing. Additionally, crate train-
ing can be an efficient and.
effective way to house-train a
dog as it helps teach the dog
to have bladder and bowel
control. Because puppies do
not like to eliminate where
they rest/sleep, the puppy
learns to wait and go at con-
veniently scheduled times.
4. Make potty training easy:
New owners must remember
that young puppies have no
more control or understand-
ing of the concept of potty
training than a toddler. In the
early weeks of ownership,
housebreaking is often hit or
miss as puppies are physical-
ly not able to hold "it" for
extended periods of time nor
will they remember 5 min-
utes after they've made a mis-
take what they have done to
upset the dog owner. The best
way of training a puppy to go


F. .


By making changes to your household and schedule, you can ensure your new puppy will feel
at home.


outside is to take him out a's
soon as he wakes up in the
morning, right after each
feeding and nap, as well as
right before bed at night. With
any form of training, consis-
tency is the key and positive
praise will go a long way il
addressing the pet's behavior.
5. Give your puppy a peaceful
place to sleep at night: It is
very common for puppies to
cry the first few nights in a
strange place. An old fash-
ioned "ticking" clock or one of


the owner's dirty t-shirts will
often settle the pup down to
sleep. Others have found a
small stuffed toy, a baby blan-
ket or even a hot water bottle
to be affective as well. Com-
fort Zone spray can be
applied to the puppy's bed-
ding as well, to help him or
her feel comfortable in their
unfamiliar surroundings.
"Among the important
things new pet owners can do
are give their puppy lots of
love, attention and positive


reinforcement. Also, it is wise
to always consult a veterinar-
ian or trainer with any ques-
tions regarding the puppy's
health and behavior," Bledsoe
said. "While most behaviors
can be modified by consis-
tent training, others may be a
result of a medical condition
that a professional can better
address."
For additional tips and
resources, Bledsoe recom-
mends that pet owners visit

ed" category became the
FWC's "Endangered" catego-
ry. The IUCN's "Endangered"
category became FWC's
"Threatened" category. The
IUCN's third category of
"Vulnerable," is considered
the FWC's "Species of Special
Concern." A species losing
nearly 30 percentof its pop-
ulation over ten years proba-
bly would not even make it
onto the "Species of Special
Concern" list.
Until the FWC adopts a
classification system that
matches IUCN's or develops
a new system that adequate-
ly protects wildlife from hab-
itat loss, the groups want the
state agency to delay any
species' reclassifications that
recommend a lesser status
of imperilment.
Manatees, injured and
killed by human activity each
year especially from boat
strikes are presently listed
as "Endangered" under both
federal and state law. How-
ever, after a state review was
conducted using the present
flawed classification system,
the FWC is set to downlist
manatees to "Threatened"
status in June. State biolo-
gists have said the manatee
population could decrease
by half in the next 45 years
from rising threats to its
long-term survival. "If the
FWC had actually adopted


the IUCN's classification sys-
tem, the manatee would
continue to meet the criteria
for 'Endangered' status," said
Patrick Rose, Director of Gov-
ernment Relations for Save
the Manatee Club.
The groups asked that the
FWC's decision to uplist the
gopher tortoise and other
species whose risk of extinc-
tion is rising, not be delayed.
"Since the gopher tortoise
meets the exceedingly high
threshold for upgrading in
the state's current classifica-
tion system, it is clearly in
need of greater conservation
attention," said Laurie Mac-
donald, Florida Direetor of
DMfthdM^of \Vildlffe "The
tortoises' upland habitat is
quickly being converted to
development around the
state. Thousands of tortoises
have been entombed below
ground as subdivisions and
shopping malls cover them
over."
As an example of one of
the criteria, under the cur-
rent classification system a
species would have to under-
go, or be at risk of under-
going, at least an 80% decline
in its population in order to
be listed as "Endangered."
"For slow-maturing species,
such as sea turtles that take
up to 35 years to reach re-
productive age, recovering a
population that has declined
by 80 percent would be
extremely difficult. Animals
such as these warrant full
protection long before an
arbitrary 80 percent threshold
is reached; by then the situa-
tion would be critical, and
saving species in emergency
situations is nearly impossi-
ble," said David Godfrey,
Executive Director
of the Sea Turtle Survival
League.
The classification system
was created to guide the
management efforts of the
state to conserve and recover
imperiled species. "As species
like the manatee are reclassi-
fied to a less imperiled status
before their populations have
actually recovered, state
funding for research, man-
agement, and law enforce-
ment will likely be directed
elsewhere, preventing full re-
covery," said Martha Collins,
attorney for the groups.
"Many of Florida's species
will be downlisted or even
delisted, not because their
biological status has chang-
ed, but simply because the
listing criteria used by the
FWC has changed. All we are
asking through our.Petition is
for the FWC to reconsider
their listing criteria and afford
Florida's imperiled species
the proper protections they
deserve."

Horses


Unless you own horses, you may
have never heard of the little show-
grounds located off of Knight's
Trail in Nokomis. Some-horse own-
ers still aren't aware of this recently
growing organization even though
it's been around since 1990. The
Sheriff's Equestrian Association
(S.E.A.) is a nonprofit open show
located just east of the interstate at
3445 Rustic Road, the facility for
the Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office Mounted Patrol.


S.EA. is a haven for those
with children learning to ride
and young horses needing
experience before hitting the
big circuits and even those
seasoned exhibitors looking
for another place to show.
They cater largely to the local
community and offer a wide
variety of classes at low prices
to appeal to those looking for
a relaxed environment but
still wanting to experience the
thrill of competition. How-
ever, don't think for a second
that these exhibitors are just
looking for a comnpetkit e trail
ride; Thea Rhodes, president
of S.EA for the last four years,
said that a few judges have
pulled her aside to comment
on the high quality of the
horses being shown. "It is very
hard to judge here," they've
said.
This open show runs the
third Sunday of the month,
September through May, with
the exception of December,
and allows just what the
name states: Horses of any
breed or discipline are wel-
come for judging on the show
grounds. A total of 53 classes
are offered in English. and
Western disciplines, with a
separate class for those spe-
cializing in Saddle Seat. Two
gaited classes are offered to
those who apply. Dressage or
Saddle Seat riders are wel-
come in English classes as
well.
Walk-Trot classes in both
disciplines are available to
children 12 and younger and,


for timid adults, walk-trot for
ages 13 and older are offered
as well. To get used to the feel
of the show ring, children just
learning to ride can enter a
leadline class, and those with
a little more skill can enter a
simple walk class. For those

who don't ride but still own
horses and are interested in

special 54th class is offered -
a costume class, and first

that specific seat for less than
two years. Youth classes are
offered for those younger

ages 13-18, and senior classes

classes are also available for
any age as long as the exhi-
bitor is showing at his or her

es are offered in walk-trot and

with a separate judge to keep
the show moving along.

ring the ring.

This year the club is giving
awards through sixth place at
their banquet Aug. 19, and 35
people are winning at least
one award. Volunteer awards
are also given to those who
dedicated a portion of their
time to the club.
The club consists of nine
board members, including
four board members, and
holds quarterly membership
meetings and monthly board
meetings. Spectators are wel-
come free of chdige oti shdtv
days.
S.EA. uses the USAEmrules
as guidelines and, beginning
in fall 2006, an ASTM-certi-
fled helmet will be required
for those 13 and younger
while mounted anywhere on
the showgrounds.
S.E.A. also offers an
annual poker run as a fun
break from all the rules of
competition. Horse and
rider combinations are
offered a prize for the best
hand of cards picked from
buckets full of unmarked
envelopes along the trail. In
December of last year they
held a special Toys for Tots
show that raised more than
$200 and a large amount of
toys to donate to the pro-
gram. Recently they also
took up a donation for a
badly injured local trainer.
For membership informa-
tion and general questions,
contact Thea Rhodes at 488-
6500.
