Venice going into bottled water business


In just a few months you could see city water on
the shelf next to the name brands but at a
much lower cost.


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS COLUMNIST


The city of Venice Utilities
Department is so proud of the
city water it's making plans to
bottle and sell it in local stores
and restaurants.
The project launch is plan-
ned for later this year. Then
you will see city ofVenice bot-
tled water alongside Zephyr-
hills, Dasani and Aquafina -
assuming, that is, that Chris
Sharek, utilities manager, gets


the support he anticipates
from council members to
begin bottling at the water
production plant on East
Venice Avenue.
"When we first started bot-
tling water it was our intent to
have it just for emergencies;
when we started giving it
away, people liked it," said
Donald Jacobovitz, public
services general manager.
"We realized we had a com-
modity here we could sell and
get some return on our in-


vestment and effort."
Sharek admitted he is the
enthusiastic guy behind the
project.
Attending meetings, par-
ticularly in Venice he gets
annoyed to see colleagues
offering bottled water they
have purchased, when they
could be drinking Venice
water.
"I go to the restaurants
locally for lunch and say I
want city ofVenice tap water,"
admitted Sharek.
Bottles and jugs
Management and water
production staff made a deci-
sion nine months ago to bot-


tie water for emergency pur-
poses. City council agreed last
October to fund filling a
tanker with water from a
faucet in the utilities yard and
sending it to Fort Myers to be
bottled, palleted and return-
ed to Venice.
For $7,500 they got 12,000
quarter-liter bottles and 2,000
gallon jugs for distribution to
the Venice community in the
event of a disaster. Staff
designed the labels.
Some bottles have been
used for promotional purpos-
es, but most are available for
emergencies, like last week-

Chris Sharek, Venice utilities manager, hopes to have the city
in the bottled water business by Nov. 1. His department
already has bottles of water used for community promotion
and gallon jugs available for emergencies.

Mom and pop selling out motels


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Escalating property taxes
and the siren calls of condo-
minium developers have be-
gun to change the commer-
cial appearance of the water-
front in Casey Key, Nokomis
andVenice.
The small hotels and mo-
tels on the beaches, an attrac-
tion for vacationing families
for years, are disappearing.
Advertisements in recent
weeks typify the change. One
former hotel has been pro-
moted as "the newest Gulf-to-
Bay condo conversion on
Casey Key." Listed before it
was sold last year as a year-
round hotel on the beach
with one-, two- and three-
room. efficiencies, its sale
price was $7.8 million.
The converters today are
offering 17 units for sale on
the Gulf of Mexico side and
nine on the bay at prices
ranging from $325,000 to
$995,,000, together with a
rental program. Although
located at 105 Casey Key
Road, the property is really in
Nokomis.
Two other motels, the Sun
Tan Terrace Resort at 117
Casey Road in Nokomis, and
The Wishing Well, several
doors to the south, were


,"^fi^ FRONT SECTION

offered for sale earlier this
month for $5.9 million each.
They were described as prime
Casey Key investments as
possible condo conversions."
Sun Tan Terrace has 14
units and five boat slips on
less than an acre of land. The
WishingWell has 17 units and
four boat slips on 1.3 acres.
Fading
Pressure to sell small mo-
tels and fishing camps along
the west coast of Florida has
mounted: from the Florida
Keys to this area and further
north.
The limited supply of
buildable land has fueled the
spurt in condominium con-
versions. Mom-and-pop mo-
tels that favored neon palm
trees and flamingo pink signs
beckoning motorists to an
affordable beachfront "par-
adise" have been fading from
the scene. Their replacements
are condominium hotel re-
sorts with higher prices for
more affluent guests. .
Real estate. records dis-
closed last December the sale
of a 36-unit hotel on Siesta
SKey for $7 million and a sec-
ond one of 17 units for $4.1
million. Following renova-
tions, they will be operated as
condominiums, according to
the property manager of the


Siesta Key hotel.
Displacement
One Nokomis motel owner
described what is probably
happening all over the state.
"In the past 18 months, it
seems that we get people
every week offering us so
much money for our place.
They have to be thinking of
converting to condos. In the
off-season, some of our
rooms right on the beach go
for $70 a night.
"I don't really want to sell, but
one of these days, the tempta-
tion is going to be too great,"
he added.
Rising taxes, higher wages
in a tight labor market and
higher costs for services have
made running a motel a chal-
lenge.
Sun Tan Terrace at one
time was listed with the Sara-
sota County property ap-
praiser as an apartment
building. Over the years, du-
plex units were converted to
motel-style rooms. The cur-
rent owner paid $1.1 million
for it in 2000. It had been sold
three times between 1979 and
1996 for from $240,000 to
$875,000. Real estate taxes in
2004 were $27,426.

LITTLE KNOWN FAMOUS FLOuRDIANS
BY JOE "FASTHORSE" HARRILL

















PHOTO COURTESY OF VENICE ARCHIVES
SPESSARD HOLLAND found a home for the third casting of
the 20,000-pound statue of Christ of the Deep. Professor
Guido Galletti cast the original work in 1954 and placed it
at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea near Genoa, Italy.
A second casting was made in 1961 and positioned under
the waters of St. George's Harbor in Grenada. The third
casting was donated to the Underwater Society of
America. With the help of the Orlando Otter Diving Club
and the Naval Reserve, Florida Sen. Holland was success-
ful in siting the 9-foot bronze sculpture beneath the
waters off John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park at Key
Largo Dry Docks to create a Florida underwater shrine.
John Pennekamp dedicated Christ of the Deep on June 29,
1966.


CITY NOTES


Condemned home
undergoing repairs
It appears the saga of
Audrey Allen-Wordell's home
will have a happy ending.
The woman, a resident of
Hatchett Creek Mobile Home
Park, had refused to respond
to city demands to correct
code violations regarding the
roof of her mobile home, and
the city got a court order
authorizing its demolition.
A contractor has applied
for a permit to make the nec-
essary repairs.
"We're glad she's finally
allowing someone to fiL the
building to meet the code,"
said Venice City Manager
Marty-Black. .


"We're glad we didn't have


"We're glad we didn't have
to demolish the structure."
Park progress
As work on the mural on
the east side of the Venice
Little Theatre wraps up, con-
struction of the park on the
adjacent property is about to
commence.
Black said that work on the
park Will begin in two to three
weeks.
The 12,000-square-foot lot
was acquired by the Sarasota
Conservation Foundation
with a grant of $413,000 from
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation ofVenice.
It's being' held in' a land

of Venice. Black said naming
the park would be the privi-
lege of the landowner.
Green light for Code Red
The city's test of its Code
Red alert system June 2 was a
success, Black said. Although
it was a Friday with no hurri-
canes on the horizon, the sys-
tem caught about 64 percent
of the city's residents at home.
"We were satisfied with
that level on a Friday morn-
ing, when people had no rea-
son to expect a call," Black
said.
In addition to being a test
of the system, the calls also
alerted residents to Sarasota
County's hurricane prepara-


tion seminar June 2 and p.
The only complaints the
city received about the calls
were that the volume was too
low, but that's a function of
the sound level on people's
phones, Black said.

Will Alberto

pay us a visit?


And so it starts.
If forecasters are correct, a
low-pressure area that formed
off the Yucatan this past week
will move into the Gulf of
Mexico this weekend and start
raining on us any time now.
If it gets a name, it will be
Alberto, the first named sys-
tem of the 2006 hurricane sea-
son. i
But no agency is sounding
alarms. Most forecasters see
this system as a rain event,
wherever it goes. Some projec-
tion models send it to Florida's
Big Bend; some send it into
Tampa ay.
Either way, we'll be on the
"wet" side of whatever forms.
And remember the last
storm headed for Tampa Bay?

Council to fill



last vacancy


Water you waiting for?


STAFF REPORT .

The first piece of business
for Venice City Council
Tuesday afternoon is to
appoint a member to get
council back up to full
strength.
The regular council meet-
ing begins at 1:30 p.m. in
council chambers at Venice
City Hall, 401 W Venice Ave.
Council has been operat-
ing as a six-member body
since the resignation of Dean
Calamaras as mayor in May.
Fred Hammett was selected
to serve as mayor until the
general election in November,
but the vacant seat has not yet
been filled.
Former city council candi-
dates Mike Gelormino, Jim
Leis and Diana Mier and
political newcomer Jim
Woods all applied to be con-
sidered for the position. Mier
has since withdrawn her
application, citing her pre-
sent inability to devote suffi-
cient time to council duties
due to other commitments.
Council will also name a
new vice mayor. Hammett
had the title until being
named mayor.
Other business
Also on Tuesday's agenda:
A public hearing on
rezoning Bella Venetia, for-


merely Caribbean Bay Club,
407 acres on the east side of
Knights Trail Road north of
Laurel Road, from Open Use
Rural to Commercial,
General.
A public hearing on
rezoning 4 acres on the south
side of Laurel Road across
from Veneto Boulevard, from
Open Use Estate to
Government Use. This is the
site of Fire Station 3, and the
rezoning is the last step in the
regulatory process before
construction can begin,
according to City Manager
Marty Black. Bids are already
out, with a target of beginning
construction before August,
he said. Council will also vote
on a comp plan amendment
concerning the fire station.

County sets goal of




energy independence


STAFF REPORT

Sarasota.County is taking
the first step to reduce its
dependence on fossil fuel
with the announcement of its
designation as the first
Renewable Community
demonstration project in the
nation.
The demonstration project
is an opportunity for Sarasota
County to be an energy leader
and to leverage partnerships.
to achieve energy indepen-
dence.
The designation for
Sarasota County was
announced during a news
conference Friday with the
National Renewable Energy
Laboratory.
"While there are hundreds
of renewable energy projects,
this is the first program that
puts together renewable
energy to power homes and
advanced vehicle technolo-
gies to power cars," said
Sarasota County
Commissioner Shannon
Staub. "This program puts us
on a path to energy indepen-
dence."
A Renewable Community
integrates a renewable energy
based energy system for both
transportation and residen-
tial/!commercial buildings.
Plug-in Hybrid Electric
Vehicles and Zero. Energy
Homes are the key compo-
nents of this integrated sys-
tem.
In a zero or near-zero ener-
gy home, rooftop photovolta-
ic power-generating systems
supply most of the energy the
house needs. This PV system.
can also provide power for
the flexible-fuel hybrid elec-
tric vehicle in addition to the
neighborhood electrical grid.
These new housing and
transportation technologies
using renewable energy will
protect the environment and
reduce dependence on fossil
fuels.
"As a nation, we must use a
range of options to reduce
our dependence on foreign
oil," said Terry Penney, tech-
nology manager for
FreedomCAR and Advanced
Vehicle Technologies at
NREL. "One of these options

Earth-moving loophole closed to protect wildlife


BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A loophole in Sarasota
County's development rules
that has allowed developers
to buy earth moving permits
without habitat surveys being
conducted to determine
whether there is endangered
wildlife on the premises
appears to have been closed.
Late Tuesday, the county
commission unanimously
agreed to require professional
surveys if county resource
protection officials believe
there is a "likelihood" gopher
tortoises, indigo snakes, fox
squirrels, scrub jays or other
endangered species may be
present on the site.
"Our staff is currently
working on land develop-
ment regulations and codes
that reflect wildlife protection
revisions we recently put in
the comprehensive plan,"
Commissioner Jon Thaxton
said, "but in the interim earth
moving permits are slipping


The commission's decision
is a response to local Sierra
Club complaints that county
development rules fail to
properly utilize state wildlife
maps, coordinate with appro-
priate federal and state agen-
cies, or require wildlife habi-
tat surveys before land is
cleared.
A new path
On April 26, the organiza-
tion addressed a letter to the
Florida Department of
Community Affairs that
described loopholes in coun-
ty rules. The agency is cur-
rently reviewing revisions to
the county's comprehensive
plan that include wildlife pro-
tection measures.
iThe environmental organi-
zation charged that county
officials have repeatedly been
provided with Database Maps
of Species Occurrence by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
which show' where endan-


gered wildlife are likely to be,
and lost them.
To remedy the situation,
the Sierra Club asked the state
agency to intervene and
ensure the county's land
development regulations
require coordination with
wildlife authorities when
habitat for endangered
species may be in harm's way.
"As it now stands," Thaxton
told the commission, "no
wildlife habitat survey is con-
ducted prior to the issuance
of an earth moving permit. If
the machinery operator sees
wildlife while clearing land,
he is required to stop and
notify authorities."
County Administrator Jim
Ley said the decision to
require wildlife habitat sur-
veys before earth moving per-
mits are issued "suggests a
new path" and suggested "it
should apply to permit
requests that are submitted
after today." The commission
agreed.

A recent study tracks the decline of Peace River


Some of the efforts to mitigate man's impact on
the river have actually worsened other problems.


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER


A soon-to-be completed
study on man's past impacts
on the Peace River has
unmasked something of a
paradox: The government's
efforts to stop pollution and
encourage conservation in
several past instances have
resulted in either decreased
flows or unintended contam-
ination.
But the study also is a sign
that the future for the Peace
River should be brighter than
the past, despite the prospect
of more phosphate mining,
agricultural development and
urbanization to come, said
Rick Cantrell, deputy director
for the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection.
The decline of the river has
been caused by "we the peo-
ple all of us," Cantrell
declared, during a public
workshop on..the study May
25. "All of us causing it; it's
drinking water, it's toilets, it's
industry."
About 70 people attended
the workshop, which was
held at the Southwest Florida
Water Management District's
Bartow office.
The meeting was .held to
allow a team of scientists
from DEP and the water dis-
trict to report their prelimi-
nary findings.
Their study is due to be
completed in August. It is
intended to provide a techni-
cal basis for the DEP to adopt
a management plan for the
Peace River.
Threshold


After the workshop,
Cantrell expressed confi-
dence that future impacts can
be balanced to sustain the
river despite the threat of
additional impacts.
"We have reached a
threshold," .he said.
"Mitigation is getting better
and better and better."
He said Horse Creek
should survive a looming
phosphate mining boom
because reclamation rules are
getting "more specific."
In 2003, the Legislature
commissioned the study as
an alternative to a federal
Environmental Impact
Statement on phosphate
mining.
The water district hired
several environmental con-
sulting firms to conduct the
study. The team. reviewed
data from past studies to
check for correlations
between landscape changes
.and river flow and quality.
The study acknowledges
that in the northern portion
of the watershed, over-pump-
ing from the Floridan Aquifer,
primarily for phosphate min-
ing, caused artesian springs
in the upper Peace River to
turn into "sinks" that now
drain that section's entire
flow.
Ironically, the impact was
masked for decades because
the phosphate industry also
discharged used mine water
into the river. So the impact
went unnoticed until after the
industry began to conserve
water in the late 1970s and
1980s.
As the flow declined, the
water quality improved.


There was a decline in such
contaminants as phosphorus
and fluoride, said Ralph
Montgomery, lead scientist
for the Post Buckley consult-
ing firm.
In the southern portion of
the watershed, a similar phe-
nomenon is occurring but
in reverse.
In that section, as agricul-
ture intensified, the flow of
several tributaries has been
augmented by irrigation
water seeping from groves
and row-crop operations.
The seepage has helped
make Shell Creek's flow
greater than that of the Peace
River at times, he said.
But the augmented flow,
also contains high levels of
chlorides and other minerals
that have significantly
degraded water quality, he
said.
Up and down
Urban development, has
also posed a similar impact.
The quality of the river's water
improved after municipal
wastewater plants stopped
discharging effluent into it.
But the flow also declined.
In the Peace watershed,
habitat has been lost, the rate
that rainwater recharges
aquifers has declined and
clay settling ponds at phos-
phate mine sites impound
water so that it evaporates
rather than drains into the
river, said Doug Roberson,
senior scientist.
"Phosphate mining, of
course, is a big stressor," he
said.
However, a decline in rain-
fall is also significant, he said.
The river's flow declined
some 30 percent between the
1930s and 1980s. There has
been almostno decline since


1970, Montgomery said.
Montgomery cited the
Atlantic Multi-Decadonal
Oscillation theory. The theo-
ry, which has been extensive-
ly studied by the water dis-
trict, holds that a cycle in
which the North Atlantic
cools or warms for 30 years or
so accounts for wetter or drier
periods in southern Florida.
Most recently, the ocean
entered a warming trend in
the mid-1990s. That's expect-
ed to herald a period of wetter
summers and more cyclones.
Montgomery displayed
graphs of the flows of several
Peace River tributaries that he
said show a correlation with
the Atlantic cycle.
The team also looked at
data from past studies on the
color of the water in the river.
The density of the color has
increased over the decades,
Montgomery said.
As the color increases, cer-
tain underwater grasses that
provide fish habitats are
probably dying out.
Montgomery theorized
that mine water discharges
had kept the water artificially
clear. Once the discharges
stopped, the natural color
returned.
World class
The Peace River is also nat-
urally high in phosphorus.
But some past data show
phosphorus levels at near
astronomical levels for unex-
plained reasons.
"These numbers are prob-
ably world class," said
Montgomery, as he showed
one graph of phosphorus lev-
els.
He said in the Everglades,
the state is working to keep
phosphorus levels within .002
parts per million. "We're at


20" parts in the Peace River,
he said.
The data also show that
levels of potassium, an ingre-
dient in fertilizer, has been
increasing.
"It's obviously a signature
of something," Montgomery
said.
In Joshua Creeks, where
agriculture has intensified in
the past decade, the "conduc-
tivity" of the water has dou-
bled, Montgomery said. That
indicates the creek is degrad-
ed with low-quality well
water.
Nitrates and fluorides have
also increased.
Tom Fraser, the team's fish
biologist, said the impacts


have "dramatically changed"
the species of fish found in
the river. Some saltwater
species such as snook are
now found miles upriver.
He also found that Horse
Creek, a watershed now tar-
geted for extensive phos-
phate mining, is an exception
to the rule.
Fraser said Horse Creek is
only 45 miles long, compared
to the Peace River, which is
105 miles.
"Yet, Horse Creek has as
many species as the main
stem of the Peace River,"
Fraser said. "It would appear
very rich in the amount of
habitat that it has."

.purifying water filter on the
end of your tap."
Most modem refrigerators
with water dispensers have
an internal purifier; conse-
quently, many families are
already drinking Venice
Water. There is virtually no
difference in tap water com-
pared to bottled water except
bottled water costs much
more.
Shelf life
Because bottles are sealed,
no bacteria will grow, as they
could do in pipes hence
the needto-have-the chlorine
in tap water.
An issue with bottled water


is the lifespan of plastic bot-
tles. The small bottles will last
a couple of years, the gallon
size is made from a different
plastic having only a six-
month shelf life, creating an
issue when the water starts
taking on a slight plastic taste.
The surplus gallon-jug-
supplies in storage will be
sent to help some unfortu-
nate city getting hit with a
hurricane.
For promotional purposes,
Venice water was provided to
the Sun Coast Public Works
Academy, which teaches
wastewater plant operators,
municipal service workers
and potential employees. It is
part of the 180 survival kits
created for teachers' use next
year.
Small goals
Venice water is as good as
or better than any other bot-
tled water you buy, insists
Sharek.
"My deadline is Nov. 1 to
have it in stores. I want this
bottledVenice Water to be sit-
ting on the shelf at 20 cents
next to the 99-cent competi-
tor bottles," said Sharek. "The
profits being made in the
commercial scenario are
unbelievable. It's just water.
They get a permit, pay the
cost of the pumps and bottle


Venice water will be priced
to be competitive, but
according to Jacobovitz, it is
unlikely ever to be on a scale
like Zephyrhills.
"It would be great, but it's


not going to happen," he said.

on critical issues by holding
discussion groups, commu-
nity assemblies and publish-
ing research findings.
Aging initiative
SLast year SCOPE facilitated
cbmnmuniri conversations on
aging, neighborhood restora-
tion and creating racial har-
mony.
SIt brought in Marc Freed-
man, an expert who focuses
on how communities and the
people in them consider the
second half of life, to discuss
the approaching impact of
baby boomers who will begin
to reach retirement age in
2011.
An aging initiative kicked
off in December 2004 with a
:series of community conver-
sations.
More than 200 residents
shared their ideas for making
Sarasota County a vital com-
munity for all ages. A com-
'munity assembly was held at
'the Senior Friendship Center-
in April.
Action teams are now
exploring more deeply issues
,like healthcare and support-
ive services, housing, mobili-
ty and transportation, well-
iness and active living. The
community assemblies will
continue to be held every four


months to help the teams
learn from each other.
Out of those conversations
SCOPE hopes to create pilot
projects and develop strate-
gies to make our communi-
ties more viable for all resi-
dents.
Race relations
Deborah Plummer, a pro-
fessor and diversity specialist
who encourages personal
friendships as the basis for
creating racial harmony, was
brought in to address chang-
ing demographics in Florida.
Community discussions
on the effect of Sarasota
County's development boom
on minorities exposed con-
cerns about gentrification
and displacement. Undocu-
mented immigrants and their
impact on transportation,
education, health care and
employment were also dis-
cussed.
SCOPE plans to continue
the conversation about em-
bracing a diverse community
with organizations like Sara-
sota Openly Addresses Rac-
ism, Coalition Against Hate
and others.
Neighborhood restoration
John McKnight, a North-
western UJniersir expert on


neighborhood restoration,
helped kick off the discussion
on how to support responsi-
ble development.
Redevelopment and infill
are tools to help communities
address workforce housing,
preserving neighborhoods,
developing economic oppor-
tunities and reducing sprawl-
ing development patterns.
SCOPE's spring 2004 re-
port, Community Change:
Redevelopment and Infill,
was followed by presenta-
tions made to community
and neighborhood groups. Its
goal: to help residents under-
stand the complexities of
redevelopment and foster
stewardship through princi-
ples of sustainability.
Since then, a coalition of
neighborhood associations
has examined SCOPE recom-
mendations, determining
which to advance with the
city of Sarasota.
Redevelopment conversa-
tions continue in neighbor-
hood associations, govern-
ment comprehensive plan
reviews and zoning regula-
tion discussions.
Sarasota County is piloting
Square One, an expanded

like it's been run through a
softening system and some-
thing has been added. If I
went with those two, I would
probably stick with the Venice
water for the novelty of Ven-
ice, supporting the city and
selling our city."
City Manager Marty Black
said having bottled Venice
water to distribute has many
benefits.
"We have been able to take
something designed for
emergencies, disasters and
water breaks, and turn it into
an item the community can
enjoy and send to their
friends, which will promote
our city," he said.


Ongoing
Additional activity sur-
rounds previous studies that
require ongoing attention.
SCOPE continues to study
and report on issues like fam-
ily violence, mental health,
school dropout, traffic flow
and congestion, and afford-
able housing.
Special projects like its
annual community report
card, the People Count report
of Sarasota County statistical
information, and Stories
Project that resulted in four
documentary films, are just
some of the useful tools creat-
ed through SCOPE's partici-
pation.

MOTELS A
mercial developer in Osprey
and Nokomis, including a
potential condominium hotel
on the northwest corner of
Albee Road and U.S. 41, told
the Nokomis Center Area
Revitalization Committee last
October that higher taxes and
increasing property values
have led to the closing of
waterfront hotels statewide.
"High property taxes on.
the beach and the displace-
ment of tourist-based busi-
nesses on the water are the


causes," he said.
"A natural migration of
hotels, restaurants and
tourist-based businesses to
areas that are not on the
water is coming," Rodriguez
predicted. "They have easy
access to the water, and that's
all they need."

County pays $1.8 million for arbitrage earnings


Federal arbitrage laws regulate how local govern-
ments invest and spend borrowed money.
Rebates or penalties are paid when a local gov-
ernment realizes excess profits.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Sarasota County recently
paid the U.S. Internal
Revenue Service a $1.8 mil-
lion rebate for excess profits it
realized from arbitrage
investments, a figure that
brings the total to more than
$5.5 million since the federal
agency started to demand
reports 20 years ago.
Circuit Court Clerk Karen


Rushing briefly reported to
the county commission that
$2.2 million was owed the
federal government for exces-
sive profits realized from
investing borrowed money,
but didn't go into extensive
details of the transactions.
"There's nothing wrong
with the county making
money by investing borrowed
money," she explained, "but it
can be a double-edged sword
if we don't spend the bor-


rowed money fast enough."
She handed out a pam-
phlet that summarized the
county's arbitrage program.
Arbitrage is generally
defined as the purchase of
securities from one market
for immediate resale on
another to profit from a price
discrepancy. However, when
it comes to governments,
arbitrage usually involves the
investment of borrowed
money to earn interest
income.
The county invests bor-
rowed money from low-inter-
est loans and bond sales for
various projects to take
advantage of higher interest
rates in the open market. But
arbitrage laws discourage


governments from indefinite-
ly holding borrowed money
to make profits through
investments.

Missed deadlines
Finance Director Pete
Ramsden explained, "If the
county borrows money at 4
percent," he said, "and earns
5 by investing it, the differ-
ence between the 4 and 5 per-
cent is arbitrage. If we spend
the money on time, and meet
all the regulations, we can
keep the difference."
When a government entity
such as Sarasota County bor-
rows money to pay for major
construction projects such
as new roads it must
expend 10 percent within the


first six months, 45 percent
within 12 months, 75 percent
within 18 months, and the
balance within 24 months.
If the county misses those
deadlines, a complex formula
described by law is used to
calculate the excess profits
earned while the borrowed
money remains invested. The
amount is then paid to the
federal government in the
form of rebates, or penalties.
Last December, the county
cut a check to the IRS for
more than $1.8 million in
excessive profits earned from
investments with commercial
loans rather than bonds.
More than $350,000 in addi-
tional rebates will be owed
over the next couple of years.


The report states that 34
county bond issues have
been affected by arbitrage
laws over the last two
decades, and that nine bond
issues and seven commercial
paper loans are being moni-
tored by a county financial
consultant in the event that
rebates to the federal govern-
ment are necessary.
In 1986, Congress enacted
arbitrage laws to discourage
local governments from bor-
rowing low-interest money
they don't need and investing
it to realize profits. The coun-
ty has lobbied to have the
"spend-down" provisions
extended from two to three
years.


United Way steps in to aid girls injured in automobile accident


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

The United Way of South
Sarasota County has stepped
in to help two Venice High
School sophomores recover
from an automobile accident.
UWSSC will act as a pass-
through organization, col-
lecting donations that will
then be deposited into a Bank
of Venice account set up in
the names of Katie Mathews
and Chloe West.
Mathews and West were
involved in a serious automo-
bile accident May 6.
West suffered a broken leg
and other serious injuries.
Mathews, who was flown
to Bayfront Medical Center,
remains in serious condition.
She was hooked up to a venti-
lator due to a collapsed lung,
according to a family friend.
She suffered a broken neck,
punctured lung and spinal
cord damage.
:i.,Steve Brett, UWSSC execu-
tive director, said his organi-
zation was glad to help out.
"That's what United Way is


about. Whether it be Katie or
Chloe or the Salvation Army
or the Red Cross, it's still
'about community impact,"
Brett said.
"It's going to help two little
girls that need the financial
support to get through this."
Brett said United Way's
involvement would lend
credibility to community
fundraising efforts. No hand-
ing or other fees will be
deducted from donations,
Brett said.
"Quite a few folks in the
community have already
committed to (this) cause.
I've received a few calls saying
checks for a thousand dollars
are on the way," Brett said.
Venice resident Barb
Bender approached Brett a
fewweeks ago about acting as
a pass-through. Bender,
whose daughter Jacklyn
attends school with Mathews
and West, helped set up a
committee to brainstorm
fundraising efforts, contact
the United Way, and establish
a bank account in the girls'
names.


You can help
A benefit dinner and auc-
tion organized by Bender and
others was held Saturday at
Venice Golf & Country Club.
The sold-out event included a
disc jockey and silent auc-
tion. One hundred forty tick-
ets were sold at $55 each.
Among the auction items
were a $1,000 package from
Artistry Landscape, a $150 gift
basket from Kilwin's
Chocolate Fudge and Ice
Cream, gift certificates, crafts
and T-shirts with Katie's and
Chloe's names.
More fundraising efforts
are under way. Bender and
Venice Regional Medical
Center's Melody Trimble are
organizing a Katie and Chloe
blood drive event on June 22
atVRMC from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Social clubs and service clubs
who donate the most blood
can win up to $750 in prizes.
Those under 18 years of age
will need parental permission
to give blood. For more infor-
mation on how your club can
participate, contact Elaine at
474-8129.


To donate, call the United
Way at 408-0595 or send a
donation to United Way of
South Sarasota County at
7810 South Tamiami Trail,
Suite 4, Venice 34293. Make
the check out to the, United
Way, and be sure to note on
the bottom it should go for
Katie Mathews and Chloe
West.
"It's. not the amount of
money you give," Brett said,
"You do what you feel you can
afford to make a difference in
the community."

County is first Renewable
Communities project
Sarasota County has been named a partner will the National Renewable
Energy Laboratory (NREL) for the first Renewable Community demonstration
project in the United States. NREL is the U.S. Department of Energy's
primary laboratory for renewable energy and energy-efficiency research and
development.
A Renewable Community integrates a renewable energy-based energy
system for both transportation and residential/commercial buildings. Plug-in
Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) and Zero Energy Homes (ZEH) are the key
components of this integrated system. In a zero or near-zero energy home,
rooftop photovoltaic(PV) power-generating systems supply most of the energy
the house needs. This PV system can also provide power for the flexible-fuel
hybrid electric vehicle in addition to the neighborhood electrical grid.These
new housing and transportation technologies using renewable energy will
protect the environment and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.
.Sarasota County government is dedicated to fostering community
sustainability in its policies and procedures. The concept emphasizes the
interdependence of the county's social, environmental and economic well-
being as the foundation of an improved quality of life for future generations.
Promoting the use of various forms of renewable energy is a key element of
sustainability.

OUR VIEW




We had higher hopes for lower buildings


aterford is back with a "scaled-down"
proposal for developing the land
across Tampa Avenue from its
Waterfront condos, and the question on our
minds is, "You call that scaled back?"
To be fair, there are some slight improve-
ments, in our opinion, between this version
and the one the company submitted and
withdrew previously. For one, it maxes out at
six stories (including one floor of parking)
instead of seven. For another, going to four
towers instead of a continuous ring of build-
ings makes it less massive and more open.
That said, we would have to characterize
this new plan as a disappointment.
It still doesn't bring back the green space
that was prominently featured in the draw-
ings on which the Waterfront was approved
for a special exception for height.
And the prior plan stepped down the


buildings as it wrapped around toward the
Venice Avenue Bridge. Roughly the eastern
half (actually a bit more) was to be seven sto-
ries, with the northern part of the rest at six
stories and the southern part at four and five.
Now each building is six stories.
But the major letdown, of course, is that
it's only one story shorter than the previous
version. We think that's just too tall for the
location -or anywhere on the island even
with the nine-story Waterfront towers across
the street.
It's being touted as a reduction from nine
stories to six, but we don't recall a nine-story
proposal for this property ever being submit-
ted. The plan Waterford took to the commu-
nity last year had no buildings taller than
seven stories.
We criticized that plan as too tall and sug-
gested it be revised to no more than 45 feet,


or about four stories. That was well in keep-
ing with the opinions offered by many pri-
vate citizens during the Envision Venice
process.
City staff thinks another floor in each
building could be eliminated by dropping
the mixed-use idea and focusing on purely
residential uses. That would be a start, but we
think the mixed-use component was the
thing the public liked best when the plan was
revealed in several community meetings last
year.
We don't begrudge Waterford the chance
to make a profit from its investment; we're in
business, too. But the vast majority of people
who have made their opinions known on the
height issue have been opposed to buildings
taller than, at most, 45 feet on the island..
There's considerable sentiment for a 35-foot
limit, though we've not been completely


rigid on that. Allowing a little leeway for that
first floor of shops.
Does a majority of Venetians favor such
strict height limits? Not necessarily, but the
voices speaking out for taller buildings on
the island have been largely silent.
Concern about being labeled "pro-
growth" gets the blame for that, but we're not
sure whom they expect tb be their advocate if
they won't do it.
They and everyone else who cares -
will get another opportunity to speak their
minds next week.
There will be a city council workshop on
the proposal Tuesday, June 13, at 10 a.m., in
council chambers at Venice City Hall, 401
Venice Ave. Public comment will be accept-
ed.
Whatever you think of the proposal, make
yourself heard.

A question ofS when, not iERS



A question of when, not if


Editor:
Hurricane season began June 1 with the U.S. coast from
North Carolina to Texas again at above-average risk. The
Federal Emergency Management Agency may get a chance to
demonstrate there should be a reform and greatly improved
relief service.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration pre-
dicts 13 to 16 named storms will develop in the Atlantic; eight
to 10 will become hurricanes and four to six will be major hur-
ricanes.
Ocean temperatures are not as ominous this year as last, but
still, we are all midway through this 20 years of strong storm
cycles worldwide. There are 34.6 million people at risk along
the Atlantic and Gulf Coast, including 17.3 million in Florida.
With research on weather conditions and others monitoring
weather worldwide, there are alarming similarities to those
that triggered the catastrophic, nameless hurricane of 1938,
which killed 600 people in the Northeast. The Northeast is star-
ing down the barrel of a gun, weather patterns and hydrology.
I What we're seeing is higher ocean temperatures worldwide.
The current cycle of storms, changing pressure systems, jet
stream, are keys for killer hurricanes making landfall in the
Northeast. It's not a question of if, but when.
There are a lot of people to persuade to evacuate if a killer
hurricane threatens Florida and the upper East Coast.
Evacuation are we ready?
The use of National Guard, local and state governments and
the federal government should provide better service and
input for this hurricane season.

Five days of
mail is enough

Editor:
If home mail delivery, not
post offices, was stopped on
Saturday, the advantages
would be:
Huge savings in gas.
Post office delivery peo-
ple would have weekends off
and some three-day holidays.
Fewer post office employ-
ees would be needed and
there would be less overhead.
They may not need to


raise postage rates.
Disadvantages:
People would have to
wait for bills until Monday.
Postal workers would
have a heavier load on
Monday.
Adjustments would have
to be made at Christmas.
The petroleum industry
would not like it.
The law would have to be
changed.
So what's the problem?
This country needs to save
gas.

Double standard
over water use?
Editor:
Loved your editorial on
putting some teeth in our
county water restrictions.
The problem seems to be
lack of rainfall. I guess there's
just not enough water to go
around.
So, how many new homes
and condos were approved
last month? How many zon-
ing restrictions were "revised"
to allow them?
I understand that we can't
restrict the developer's prop-
erty rights, but I guess
restricting my property rights
is another matter.
Guess I'll go out and water
my lawn.

House has lost
all credibility
Editor:
A House cleaning is need-
ed pun intended.
House Speaker J. Dennis
Hastert, R-Ill., and Demo-
cratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-
Calif., issued a statement
denouncing the FBI raid on
William Jefferson's congres-
sional office (after they found
$90,000 in his freezer at
home).
Then the president caves
in and seals the seized docu-
ments, and we find out
Hastert may be in the same
boat as Jefferson, D-La., as he


is involved in the ever-
expanding Abramoff probe.
Since when are our elected
officials immune from inves-
tigation and for criminal
activity?
Their statement said the
raid was a "violation of the
Constitutional principle of
separation of powers, the
Speech or Debate Clause of
the Constitution, and the
practice of the last 219 years

"Checks" are the'monitor-
ing powers each has over the
other branches' activities and
"balances" are the limiting
powers they have over the
other's activities. The execu-
tive branch served a warrant
issued by the judicial branch.
It seems Jefferson got
checked and soon will be bal-
anced.
The Speech or Debate
Clause of the Constitution
states representatives "shall
in all Cases, except Treason,
Felony and Breach of the
Peace, be privileged from
Arrest ... ." Jefferson hasn't
been arrested yet.
When he is, I think the FBI
definitely has felonious
bribery charges on the mind
for him.
If they aren't voted out of
office, I will enjoy watching
the dancing circus poodles in
Congress cavort about the
ring yipping and nipping into
the cameras while the collar
of justice rounds up the
mutts.

Veterans going up in smoke


Killing each other. Yeah, I'm a Vietnam veteran with health
problems. I could hardly wait until the new American Legion
headquarters on Venice Avenue opened up so I could go down
and join up. I went in, I saw all these veterans sitting around
smoking and that beautiful new building smelled terrible with
stale smoke. I'm glad all those veterans stayed alive during the
wars they were in, but they're killing each other now with ciga-
rette smoke. It's sad. I thought there was a law against smoking
where food was served. I walked out. I didn'tjoin up. Too bad.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Florida's workplace smoking ban exempts "member-
ship association facilities," such as veterans organizations.

Kitchen complaints. I do

Wednesday, I really got a,
laugh out of the picture of the
chef wearing hats in the
retirement home. Where I
live, we don't even have a
dietitian and the food is ined-
ible at times. We have canned
gravy on everything and salt,
salt, salt. Even the soups are
watered. Have the same
menu every two weeks. The
students who work here,
some of them are kind of
fresh. The beef is horrible,
can't cut it even with a saw.
Back taxes. Here we go
again. Property taxes are
overdue again. Isn't it strange
that we have to, and we do,
pay ours, but all these people
seem to ignore them. There
are some really, really big
ones.
Never printed. I called in
about five weeks ago regard-
ing Mayor Ray Nagan of New
Orleans. I also called a few
months after Katrina hit New
Orleans. You never printed
either one. Last week some-
one called in about some very
insulting remarks about
George Bush that you print-
ed. I was told you are a liberal
newspaper and don't expect it


to be printed.
Everything I said could be
verified as being factual. I'm
sure you erased my last call in
so I will repeat it but I won't
hold my breath for it to
appear. It was titled "New
Orleans."
Kanye West, rapper and
producer, has mentioned sev-
eral times on TV that George
Bush doesn't care about black
people. Well I wonder what he
thinks about Mayor Ray Na-
gan. CNN's Anderson Cooper
was the only reporter to re-
port that the day before
Katrina hit New Orleans,
Amtrak offered to take 1,000
people to safety but the
pompous mayor turned them
down. Many of the sick and
elderly people did not have to
be found dead in their homes,
not to mention 200 busses
that were underwater. His
comment to that was that he
didn't have any drivers. I'm
sure there were many people

who would have volunteered.
A few months after the hurri-
cane, Anderson Cooper was
on the Oprah show and re-
ported what he said about
Amtrak again. Oprah's reply
was, "Are you sure?" And he
said definitely. Unfortunately,
I don't think too many New
Orleanians were able to
watch TV But can you imag-
ine if the mayor was white?
Auditions. I hope the
Venice Little Theatre will have
auditions for the play, "The
Penis Parade." My wife says
I'm a shoo-in for the starring
role since I have big hands
and big feet.
Stay. Venice High School
should definitely stay where
it's at.

to bring in a second tractor-
trailer. Great response!

I am down 30 pounds on
the diet just in time to return
to my 40th reunion at
DePauw University in
Greencastle, Ind. This town is
known for very little, other
than maybe being a stop on
the Monon Railroad and that
Dave Pierce's mother lives
there.
I am sure all my old class-
mates will recognize me since
I haven't changed any, but I
would guess they will be hard
to pick out.

It was 29 years ago this
week that the county closed a
deal to take over the North
Jetty, putting it under parks
and rec department control.
******
Today's Ism: Is, there an-
other word for synonym?

We are having our annual
Best of Venice balloting to
determine the best business-
es, parks, golf courses and the
like. We hope you will fill out
the ballot; the last will be run-
ning on Wednesday. Return it
by this Friday to be counted.
It has been a good way to
recognize a great number of
good businesses and profes-
sionals, which we are blessed
to have so many of.

I was a little saddened to
see that in the renovations at
Venice High ,this summer
they removed the palm trees
that lined the entrance to the
campus. These were planted
by and were a project of the
Garden Club, which, inciden-
tally, has done beautification
projects all over our city. You
would be surprised by all of
their contributions.
Some of these were pulled
out, the others just cut down.
There is going to be a lot of
new landscaping, so maybe
what replaces those will be
great, but nonetheless it was
disturbing to many who liked
them.

i Our son Scott, who lis in
1 ) eu I .:- | I ; )


Tallahassee, told me the
restaurants have been the real
victim of the new lobbying
laws that do not allow politi-
cians to be wined and dined.
He did not have the amount
they were down but he said it
was sizable and he thought
many would go out of busi-
ness.
*******
Venice MainStreet is look-
ing for volunteers to work in
its office who have reasonable
office skills, including some
light computer work. You will
get to play in the kids foun-
tain and come to all Thursday
strolls as your pay. If interest-
ed, call Tom Opsut at 484-
6722.
******
Good news for city of
Venice taxpayers was report-
ed by Marty Black, city man-
ager, to the county Economic
Development Corporation.
He mentioned we have the
new valuation in for real
property in the city and it is at
$4 billion, up 30 percent from
the year before. This will sure-
ly mean another drop in the
village rate, maybe below 3.0
from its current 3.17. Re-
member that while this
sounds great, property only
represents about 15 percent
of the city budget.
He also mentioned the city
had just received more than
$3 million to redo one of the
runways, a project long over-
due, that got held up because
of the city's fight with the FAA
over the leases at the airport.
It began with the lease for the
golf course.

Bumper sticker (another
one from Chris Skelton):
Good lovers don't speed.

Suit to follow arrest of alleged con man


BYTOMMYMCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Jim Adams, a restaurant
equipment supplier recently
arrested on fraud charges,
now will have to face some of
his alleged victims in civil
court.
"I intend to file a lawsuit
seeking compensatory and
punitive damages against
Dorothy Taylor Adams, James
Harold Adams, James Harold
Adams III (his son), Neil
Klaber (their former sales rep-
resentative) and Bay Breeze
Maintenance for, among
other things, a conspiracy to
defraud the public, a conspir-
acy to defraud the victims and
false and deceptive trade and


advertising practices," attor-
ney Harry Cardillo said. "I am
currently rounding up the vic-
tims."
Adams, of Bradenton,
owner of Bay Breeze Main-
tenance, was arrested June 2.
He was charged with schem-
ing to defraud, grand theft
and operating as an unli-
censed contractor.

HENRY FRANKLIN
(Buddy) BRYSON
Buddy Bryson, 73, of Nokomis,
went home to be with his Lord,
Monday, June 5, 2006. He was
predeceased, one week prior, by his
wife of 49 years, Annie (Lois)
Bryson. Buddy and Lois moved to
Florida from North Carolina in
1956. He was a Masonry
Contractor ard has been retired
several years.
He was a good man that believed
and lived the Golden Rule. Even
when times were tough, he never
complained, at least when we kids
were around, but we knew his job
was rough. Every morning he
would grab his lunch box and
thermos of coffee and kiss mom
goodbye before leaving for work.
Late in the evening, we would hear
his truck pull into the driveway
and see a tired man heading for the
front door. But when he entered
the house, a smile would flash
across his face and he had hugs for
everyone. It was probably during
one of those many hugs that I first
noticed the stained, rough hands of
hard work. He was a good man
that provided a warm loving home
to his family. He was also blessed
with wonderful friends and
business associates.
Visitation for family and friends
will be held on Tuesday, June 13,
2006 at Farley Funeral Home, 265
S. Nokomis Avenue, Venice from 6-
9 PM. Burial will be at the
Hamburg Cemetery in Cashiers,
NC. The family requests that
memorial donations be made to the

guy's a bum."
Closer to home is Anita
Nikolov, owner of Anita's
Restaurant in Nokomis.
"They (Bay Breeze) ripped
me on a chicken rotisserie,"
she said nearly 18 months ago
when the story broke. "He
says things that are not true
- lies."
Then there is Chris King;
owner of The Dome Flea
Market. Adams allegedly
gypped King out of at least
$40,000.
"Plus," King said this week,
"I spent umpteen-thousand
dollars trying to get enough
evidence against him (for
Adams' prosecution)."
Local pizzeria owner Sal
Licata also claims he was
bilked out of tens of thou-
sands of dollars by Adams.
Numerous alleged Adams'


victims have come forward in
Sarasota, Bradenton and
Venice.
Most said they have been
complaining aboutAdams for
years. Some even took their
complaints to law. enforce-
ment in Sarasota County and
were told that the allegations
against Adams did not rise to
the level of criminality.
However, when com-
plaints started coming in
from the Bradenton area,
Manatee County Sheriff's
Detective Dan Curry was
assigned the case.
Curry was able to put
'together enough evidence to
'file criminal charges against
Adams.

Two Venice Little
League powers to face
off in crucial County
Cup losers' bracket
game.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Thanks to strong pitching
performances by a couple of
Michaels, Kiwanis and Babe's
Hardware will meet for a
fourth time this season.
Kiwanis edged the North
Port Yankees, 3-2, and Babe's
shaded the Sarasota Padres,
2-1, in County Cup losers'
bracket action Saturday at
Twin Lakes Park.
The two Venice Little
League teams are scheduled
to play each other at 7 p.m.
Monday weather permitting.
Kiwanis was led by
Michael Knott, who pitched a
three-hitter and hit a clutch
game-tying home run late in
the game against North Port.
Babe's was paced by the hurl-
ing of Michael Iorio, who fired
a two-hit, 11-strikeout gem.
There are now only four
teams left in the County Cup
- Kiwanis, Babe's, the Sara-
sota Cubs and the Sarasota
Nationals.
The miracle Nationals won
the winners' bracket final
over the Cubs Saturday, 13-5.
The Cubs wait to face the
winner of Kiwanis-Babe's.
That game is slated for
Tuesday, but then again, that
is if no rain heads our way.
Kiwanis and Babe's have
played three times this year
already. Kiwanis won twice in
the regular season and also in
the City Cup final.
Babe's, which won the
County Cup last year, is hop-
ing the fourth time is the
charm.
Michael Iorio was in total
control Saturday. He is 2-0 in
the tournament. Babe's is 4-1
in the tourney.
Babe's scored both of its


SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN

Swimming is an ideal
activity for families, providing
fun in the sun and quality
time spent together.
It is also an important tool
in the ongoing fight against
rising levels of obesity in the
United States.
Known as "America's
Favorite Swim Instructor,"
YMCAs this year celebrate 100
years of teaching Americans
not only how to swim, but
also how to maintain health
and wellness in spite of our
busy lives.
"With nearly 60 million
adults and 9 million children
obese or overweight, increas-
ing levels of physical fitness
for children and families has
become of increasing impor-
tance in the Venice and
Englewood communities,"
said instructor Cynthia
Stubbins. "Learning how to
swim is not only an important
part of growing up, but it is
also a fun form of exercise
and a great first step in
preparing kids for a lifetime
commitment to physical fit-
ness. Swimming is an ideal
form of exercise because it
tones the entire body while
providing an excellent cardio-
vascular workout, and
strengthens the heart muscle
while improving delivery of
oxygen to muscles."
"Swimming lessons pro-
vide children with essential
skills to be safe in and around
water. In addition to building
character and self-confi-
dence, children learn about

runs in the first inning and
hung on. Colton Lightner sin-
gled and Iorio walked. That
set the stage for Mason Bo,
who had a clutch two-run
single.
The Padres finally broke
through in the sixth as Dylan
White banged a solo home
run. It was not enough to stop
Babe's.
Kiwanis, which won the
County Cup in 2004, got a
super effort from Knott, who


took a no-hitter into the fifth
inning. Kiwanis had protect-
ed a 1-0 lead since the first
inning when Ryan
Golembeski slugged a mon-
ster home run on the first
pitch of the game.
The North Port Yankees
broke through with three hits
and two runs in the fifth.
Knott saved himself from
defeat with a home run to
centerfield in the top of the
sixth, tying the game at 2-2.


Getting


The winning run came across
shortly afterwards. David'
Martin walked and Tysorio
Albert delivered a RBI double
to left.
Knott induced North Port
into three harmless ground-
outs in the bottom of the sixth
to end the game.
Knott finished with 13
strikeouts.
"He made us guess a lot,"
Yankees pitcher Logan
Hoggarth said. "He had two


junk pitches that he threw in
the dirt a lot. But he got us to
swing at them. It was tough."
Knott threw first-pitch
strikes to- all but two Yankees,
and only once faced a full
count allowing one of his
three hits to Bobby Perry.
"We haven't seen curve-
balls in North Port," Hoggarth
said. "It was really tough com-
ing into this tournament,
where a lot of kids have
curveballs."

leadership, safety and rescue
skills, and water activities.
These important survival
skills allow parents and chil-
dren to enjoy a lifetime of
both fun and healthy activity
at pools, beaches and water
parks."
Swimming is also an ideal
exercise for "baby boomers"
and other older adults who
want to maintain their fitness,
but may need to give up high-
impact or repetitive-motion
activities such as running,
cycling and aerobics. YMCAs
also offer water fitness classes
and competitive swim pro-
grams for youth and adults.
This year, the South
County Family YMCA's two
locations are set to help chil-
dren and families ring in the
swim season by providing
water safety education, swim-
ming lessons and other fun
aquatics programs, available
to all ages from babies to
senior citizens.
Call 492-9622 for more
information.

The road through paradise is paved


BY LAUREL SCHILLER
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN

Change is happening so
fast now. The trees that beau-
tified the north end of Venice
are gone. They were planted
there just a few years ago. .
Trees that could have pro-
vided shade and a touch of
nature for the next hundred
years were pushed over and.
broken in half and then left as
uprooted weekend debris.


Rollers spread asphalt over
the last of the grassy medians
that 'separated traffic along
U.S. 41, the "Scenic" Tamiami
Trail. It now looks like a jum-
bo jet landing strip asphalt
eight lanes deep. Once again
the promise of beautiful, tree-
shaded medians to buffer the
heat, noise and ugliness of
traffic gone and forgotten.
Rapid change is occurring
everywhere now. Change that
wipes out esthetics and future


pleasantness, the, reason one
moves here arid not some-
where else.
Change that breaks up,
paves over, replaces promised
visions, leaving behind loss
and barrenness. Our lives are
diminished.
"Heartwood," "heart of the
palm": names we use to
describe the core or living
center of trees. "Heartbrok-
en": what remains when their
promise is gone.

KNOT JUST
MAGIC


EDITOR'S NOTE: Several weeks
ago I received an e-mail from an
old Manatee High School friend
named Roger Proper, who now
lives in Thailand with his second
wife. We haven't seen each other
in more than 30 years. He wrote
me because he read a column I
had written about Vietnam. Roger
was a Marine who served two
tours of duty in Vietnam, and, as a
consequence, came home a
changed man. In this story he tries
to explain to his 29-year-old son
why Vietnam made him the way
he is today.
Don Moore, Senior Writer

BY ROGER PROPER
SPECIAL TO THE SUN

It was Nov. 15, 1967, and
"Operation Foster," a search-
and-destroy mission, had
been under way for five days.
The 7th Marine Regiment,
with elements of the 5th
Marines and the 1st Marines,
had the mission of rounding
up all civilians in a free-fire
zone called "The Arizona
Territory" and loading them
into helicopters for transport
to De Nang.
After the civilians were
removed, we could get down
to the real reason we were
there engaging and neu-
tralizing the Viet Cong and
North Vietnamese Army units
in the territory.
It was just after sunrise as
the battalion was sweeping
on line across wet rice pad-
dies toward a tree line with
hooches in view when an AK
(assault rifle) opened up on
full automatic. Everyone
flopped behind a paddy-dike
for cover as we tried to find
where the fire came from. It's
quiet.
No more incoming, but the
damage had been done. No
one was hit, but we were all
wet from laying in the paddy
behind the dike. Everyone on
line was wet, including com-
pany Lt. Col. Barnard, and he
was hacked.
We passed the rest of the
day rounding up civilians
without further contact with
the enemy. That evening at
sunset the word came down
that the colonel wanted (the
shooter) that got him wet. We
were going back into the
same area the next day at sun-
rise, and he didn't want a
repeat performance.
The platoon leader, Lt.
Krebs, asked for volunteers to
go out at midnight and set up
an ambush in the vicinity of
where we suspected the
enemy fire had come from.
Cpl. Salas, a 19-year-old
American Indian from New
Mexico we called "Chief," vol-
unteered to be patrol leader.
Winters volunteered to be
radioman, and I agreed to go,
as did Schwab and Brown
from my fire team. The five of
us had been on ambush
together several times in the
past, though we had never
sprung one.
We moved out at 4 a.m.,
taking only our weapons,
ammo and grenades. In 30
minutes, we were snooping
along a trail close to where we
wanted to set in.
Chief stationed Brown at
the first hooch we came to
and told him to kill anyone
who came down the trail. At
the next hooch, 100 feet down
the trail, he put Schwab and
told him the same thing. Two
hundred feet further, I got the
next hooch and on the other
side of an intersecting trail
Salas and Winters set in.
The trail running between
the hooches we were in was
well-worn and open for about
150 feet, separating two rice
paddies. I had a perfect field
of fire from the far tree line to
a dense bamboo thicket near

ferry troops to the War zone and fly out the dead and wounded. He flew 100 combat missions.


my hooch, and I couldn'tbe
seen from outside.
The hooch I was in was
typical. It had a packed mud
floor, thatched room and a
large area for the family water
bull. I took out several
grenades and loaded maga-
zines for my rifle, laying them
out for easy access. I.relaxed,
expecting this to be another
exercise in futility.
It was starting to get light
out, and I could make out the
far side of the paddy when I
saw movement. Then a Viet
Cong soldier in black paja-
mas, Ho Chi Minh sandals,
ammo belt with two maga-
zines and a deadly-looking
AK-47 assault rifle came out
into' the open and hesitated,
looking in my direction.
I froze; thinking he could
see me and was about to level
the AK in my direction. The
flimsy hooch I was in offered
good camouflage, but no
cover. A burst from his AK
would go through the hooch
and me like a knife through
hot butter.
Then he very cautiously
started to walk down the
paddy dike in my direction.
Behind him another soldier
appeared, then another and
another. Four heavily armed
men with high-tech weapons
were 100 feet from me and
just itching to mess up my
health record.
My mind was racing, trying
to think of all the possibilities.
Does Chief see them? Are
they asleep? That had hap-
pened before on an ambush.
If they were asleep then I
would have to spring the
ambush.
But I can't do that, because
in the Marine Corps, only the
patrol leader can spring the
ambush under penalty of
court-martial. If there is a
Wounded in Action or Killed
In Action as the result of me
springing the ambush, it's a
general court-martial and
serious big time if the enemy
doesn't kill me.
I aim in on the man's head
and pray silently, "shoot
'Chief' shoot!" The enemy
soldiers are getting closer to


the bamboo thicket. Once the
point man makes it to the
bamboo, I'm a dead man
because M-16 (rifle) rounds
are deflected by bamboo.
By now I'm sure Chief and
Winters are asleep. The sol-
diers are almost out of the kill
zone. They're only 15 meters
away. I had to act to save my
own life.
I carefully aim at the point
man's head and pull the trig-
ger. I had decided to fire 18
rounds on slow fire to prevent
my rifle from jamming. In the
past it had jammed on the
fifth round every time I tried
to fire automatic.
The first round was aimed
fire and then 17 more rounds


of ammo. Then it was deadly
quiet.
As I reloaded I screamed,
"Chief, are you OK?" He
acknowledged they were OK.
We met on the trail and
advanced on the bodies of
two men lying in the paddy.
The second man was still
alive, but his back had been
blown away from his butt to
his shoulder blades. It
appeared one of my rounds
had hit his grenade. The
grenade also killed the third
man.
As I looked down at the
wounded man, I knew I had
to end his misery, but I could-
n't pull the trigger. Winters
saved me the agony. He emp-

were paced slowly starting
from where I remember the
first man standing. I worked
my way back to two, then
three and where I thought the
fourth man was.
About the 10th round,
there was a tremendous
explosion in the kill zone, but
I kept shooting until I ran out


tied his magazine into him.
We had two bodies and
two weapons, but the point
man with his AK was missing
and the fourth man was also
missing. As I relived the
moment, I recalled seeing,
out of the corner of my eye, a
person running through the
paddies from the kill zone to


my right.
I hollered to Schwab, ask-
ing if he had seen him come
by. He said, "No," but that he
would look for him. Chief said
he saw the point man with
the AK turn as soon as I start-
ed shooting and run back up
the path the way they had
come.
We immediately found a
- blood trail and started follow-
ing it. About a hundred yards
back up the trail near a
hooch, we spotted his body.
Suspecting he might still be
alive or might have booby-
trapped himself, I decided to
fragg" him. I rolled a grenade
up next to him. When it
exploded it flipped his body
over, revealing his AK. He had
been shot between the eyes.
His body just didn't get the
message right away.
When I returned to the
hooch to pick up my unused
magazines and grenades, I
spotted wet footprints going
into a bunker in the rear of
the hooch. I knew that was
where the fourth man was. I
had enough killing for one
day, so I turned and walked
away, thankful he didn't shoot
me in the back.
Chief and I returned to the
ambush site, which by now
had a 100 Marines milling
around. The entire battalion
came running when they
heard the firefight. Chief, the
platoon sergeant and the
lieutenant were unhappy I
had sprung the ambush.
Chief had spotted the
enemy soldiers the same
moment I did. He was going
to let them get close and step
in front of them and spray
them on automatic. When I
sprung the trap, he opened
up fire and jammed on the
fourth round. It was over by
the time he got his M-16
cleared.
The lieutenant told me if it
hadn't turned out as it did he
would have court-martialed
me. The next day he gave me
a meritorious combat pro-
motion in the field.

Venice Little Theatre and Loveland 'Challenged'


BY COLETTE KOLTAY
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN

At the Loveland Follies
June 3 and 4, a challenge was
issued to Venice Little Theatre
and Loveland Center to raise
at least $50,000 to support
the annual Loveland Follies.
The first $50,000 raised will
be matched by a similar
amount to be donated by
George and Lorraine Cooper.
All monies will be deposited
into an endowment fund that


will ensure the annual ex-
penses will be met and the
follies can be presented "Now
and Forever."
The Loveland Follies is a
partnership endeavor be-
tween Venice Little Theatre'
and Loveland School. This
year's show was their llth
annual production. Titled
'All Aboard," it proved that
with the proper training and
supervision, properly trained
adults with developmental
disabilities can improve with


time and become viable
parts of their community
while also "living their lives
to the fullest."
Since their inception in
1996, the Follies have grown
from a 100 percent volunteer
program to a full-scale stage
production with a paid staff.
Expenses for costumes and
other necessities have also
increased and are now plac-
ing a strain on the budgets
of both the VLT and Love-
land.

more prairie dog "language"
that hasn't yet been decoded
by humans, but the study
showed these prairie dogs
rely on each other for their
safety through verbal com-
munication.
It was astonishing to me to
learn that the prairie dogs
reacted differently to various
calls. A warning of a hawk cir-
cling got a different reaction
from the members of the
prairie dog town than did a
warning of a hawk diving,
even though both "verbaliza-
tions" involved "hawk."
As with people, verbal
communication is learned.
Neither prairie dogs nor
humans are born under-
standing language. Both have
to learn. By the way, different
prairie dog towns have differ-
ent dialects. Native Floridians
don't sound like they were
born in New York. The differ-
ent dialects (and "calls") were
created by each colony or
town, and passed along from
one generation to the next.
Hmmm, just like us!
This column isn't a "jour-
nal of science." But I hope I've
shared enough of this fasci-
nating research to clearly
show you that animals are
capable of a lot more than we
generally give them credit for.
And why can't we try, just a lit-
tle bit harder, to understand
them? Let's learn what other
species have to say. I'm sure
it'll beworth the effort.

It is '/V'f Ie
estimated
that seven out
of ten people will be
affected by some sort of neck pain at
some point in their lives. In fact, one
in ten adults is suffering from neck pain
at any given moment. This should not come as a
surprise. After all, the neck does more than just
support the heavy weight of the head. It also
houses a complex system of muscles, bones,
tendons, and nerves that provide the necessary
strength and flexibility to enable the head to turn,
tilt, and nod easily. While some neck pain starts
the moment of a rear-end collision, it is more
Common for neck structures to ache after years of
normal use, misuse, and overuse.
Research supports chiropractic. It works it's safe -
it saves time and money. We believe chiropractic is
an effective alternative treatment for a number of
conditions such as neck pain, TMJ, asthma, earaches,
high blood pressure, headaches, and ulcers.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER,
we address the cause, not just the symptoms. We are

Common, embarrassing



disease: how to prevent it


STAFF REPORT


While getting ready for a
date, Michael Twain discov-
ered something that he
thought would ruin his whole
evening a cold sore, other-
wise known as oral herpes.
Embarrassed, Twain decided
to cancel.
"I get cold sores frequent-
ly on my lips and I always
feel like hiding," said Twain,
who did not want to use his
real name. "So, anytime I get
an outbreak before a date, I
cancel. I don't even know
how to bring it up to people."
Twain is not alone. Ap-
proximately 200 million
Americans have oral herpes
and 50 million have genital
herpes, according to the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention. However,
since herpes is not com-
monly discussed, many are
not diagnosed.
Herpes is a highly con-
tagious viral infection that
"sleeps" in the body and
can be triggered at any
time. Herpes is transmitted

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. My husband's hearing aid
often times "whistles" or
"squeals" when he opens his
mouth or turns his head. Is
there any way to stop this
without turning the hearing
aid down?
A. The largest cause of
whistling or "feedback" is wax
impaction in the ear canal. The
amplified sound enters the ear
canal and bounces off the wall
of wax and back out the ear
canal causing a whistle. Once
the wax is removed from the
ear canal the hearing aid will
return to normal functioning. If
this does not occur, then this
means a "leak" is present
between the hearing aid and ear
canal. This too can be corrected
with a reshell or remake of the
outer part of the hearing aid. If
the hearing aid is under
warranty, this remake is usually
made at no charge. If the
instrument is older, there may
be a charge for this service.
Either way, it is important to
see an Audiologist before
undergoing a remake to insure
that the problem of feedback
will be resolved. Call the
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. at 492-4327 to schedule
an appointment to solve
hearing aid whistling today.

through direct skin-to-skin
contact oral herpes most
commonly through kissing,
and genital herpes through
sexual activity, including
oral sex but due to the
fragility of the virus, neither
form is transmittable from
inanimate objects such as a
toilet seat or towel. Both oral
and genital herpes can be-
gin with a tingling burning
sensation that develops into
painful red sores or lesions.
"Sufferers and their part-
ners can face great stress,
because becoming intimate
can be difficult. The out-
breaks can also cause con-
cern and lower self-esteem,"
said Dr. Stephen Tyring, pro-
fessor of dermatology, micro-
biology, molecular genetics


and internal medicine at the
University of Texas Health
Science Center in Houston,
Texas. "The problem is emo-
tional stress can actually
trigger additional outbreaks,
so sufferers need to relax to
control herpes."
Fatigue, hormonal chang-
es, sickness, and injuries like
sun-damaged lips and cuts
from shaving can also lead
to outbreaks. Experts sug-
gest plenty of rest and exer-
cise to keep your immune
system strong.
Doctors are trained to dis-
cuss potentially embarrassing
health issues and can con-
duct tests to determine if
you have herpes.
While there is no cure for

Sometimes it's the little

we might sail through life bor-

Just take Saturday morning
at the Mule Barn truck stop.

There we were, making cer-
tain no sudden wind would
blow our chairs away from

when Be rt \valed inwearng
that shirt. It was a'Western
shirt, which is certainly not
out of place in this rural area,
but we all knew the only thing
Bert knew about horses was
how many he had under the
hood of his sedan.
"Lock at this!" said Dud.
"Pretty fancy shirt," Doc
said.
"Got pants to go with it,
too," Bert said. "Striped ones.
You know, gambler pants.
And boots. I don't wear them
here though. Just to go danc-
ing."
"Dancing, eh?"
"Maizie's idea. She said we
weren't getting any younger

"You bet. Boot scootin' and-
everything. I know how to do

We looked at Bert, with 40
years worth of eating regular-

"Hey, I can dance,-and I
can prove it!"
"OK, Hon!" yelled our wait-
ress, Loretta, dropping a
quarter in the jukebox. "Let's
you and me dance and we'll
show 'em."
So he grabbed Loretta and
the two of them did a pretty
good little two-step right
there during the breakfast
rush. There was great cheer-
ing as they did their little


whirl in, whirl out and clomp,
clomp, clomp. Many of the
people in there were clapping

Loretta a quick spin and she
sat in his scrambled eggs.
So what otherwise
would've been just a routine

deeply in our local lore
because of scrambled eggs.
He'd already eaten the hash
browns and bacon.
Sometimes it's the little
stuff that sticks with us.

STAFF REPORT
Michelle Hazeltine and
Michele Ruane, co-chairs of
the Cardinal Mooney High
School Annual Dinner Auc-
tion, greeted more than 250
guests recently at the Long-
boat Key Club.
Guests, donned in their
black and white attire, en-
joyed the beautiful spring
breeze as they were treated to
hors d'oeuvres and cocktails
as they placed their bids at
the outdoor silent auction
tables. There was a silent auc-
tion of more than 200 items as
well as a live auction. The
items up for bid included spa
treatments, a weekend in a
downtown New York condo,
Club Seats for a Bucs game, a
day of paintball with CMHS
coach Josh Smithers, and the
traditional school favorites
such as a designated student
parking space on campus and
special, cushioned, reserved
stadium seats at every foot-
ball game.
A delicious sit-down din-
ner was served followed by
dancing to the tunes provided
by the talented band, "Tru


Pseudo."
The very successful event
raised funds for tuition assis-
tance as well as LCD projec-

SENIOR SCENE


Love is in the air


A -.


VIRGINIA DEUPREE



When Endrus came in
today and looked out the win-
dow, it was void of all love-
bugs but one couple, flying in
unison and cavorting in mid-
air. As Endrus, my collabora-
tor, typist and friend, and I
work on this (June 5), these
bugs have the nerve to do "it"
right in front of us. And as far
as we can find out, they don't
do any work whatsoever. Even
flies and bees have to work for
a living like the rest of us.
I can't figure out why these'
guys can just appear, do what
they do and then just disap-
pear again. As I understand it,
this female comes alive from
an egg, flies around a bit, sees
a guy, drags him off with her
and they have sex. Now ac-
cording to an article Endrus
found on her computer, this
may last as long as 56 hours.
And then I reckon, the male
just says Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!,


rolls over and dies. Do they
know something we don't? We
all know that the females are
the smarter of the sexes so
this should surprise no one. I
dunno!
And the article said they
mate with heads at opposite
ends. Each to their own, I
guess. According to that arti-
cle, it has been reported that
lovebugs had been cloned at a
university in Florida, but that
is not true. Lovebugs originat-
ed in the Central American
countries of Costa Rica and
Honduras and moved north
through Texas, Louisiana,
Mississippi, Alabama and
Georgia to reach Florida.
They have also been seen as
far north as Wilmington, N.C.
Ok, you Michiganders, the
female of this species of black
bugs are 1/3 of an inch long
and the male 1/4. And just be
glad you've never had them
plaster your car as they will
eat the paint right off, if left for
any length of time. My friend,
Jeanne, says she cleans them
off with a can of Coke. High
pressure water spraying,
which is found at car washes,
is said to the best for cleaning
the bugs off.
The reason I know the size
of these creatures is that it
was in the Gondolier Sun June
2-3 and the only reason I had
access to that is that Josie, our
congenial and hard-working


weekend concierge, dug it out
of her wastepaper basket to
give .to Jay to give to me, so
that Indrus could read it. Boy,
is that roundabout.
As long as I am playing ring
around the rosie, I should
explain that Josie has served
in this capacity since Marriott
Brighton Gardens opened
these doors on Dec. 4, 1996.
She is the one who brings the
Gondolier to work and makes
copies available-to the other
residents.
Now, back to the bugs. The
Gondolier says they are relat-
ed to the fly. Why would the
'fly want this kind of relation
or vice versa for that matter?
Oh, well, we all have a few
relations we'd rather we didn't
have.
Last Friday, my room was
swarming with lovebugs,
both dead and alive. The out-
side walls and doors of the
building were plastered with
them.
But I am curious about
something neither the Gon-
dolier nor the computer arti-
cle explained. Being a weath-
er watcher, I wondered why
they would want to come in
just before we had rain and
why after the rain, did they
suddenly disappear? I won-
dered if they were so sweet
they melted, but the comput-

It's the little things that count


BY DALE MOORE
GUEST COLUMNIST


It's the little things in life
that often make the most slat-
ing impression.
. Just when one begins to
believe that the younger gen-
eration's behavior and man-
ners are going to the dogs
(though I have heard that the
dogs resent the implications
of that adage) some little
event happens that gives one
new hope for the future. Such
an event occurred the other
night in the local supermar-
ket parking lot. As usual I was
running a little late. Traffic
had been a bear. Too many
drivers were driving as
though they were in the
bumper car ride at the
amusement park; cutting in
and out, turning without
using turn signals, turning
right from the left-hand lane,
passing on the right etc. And
the rest seemed to be driving


as though they were the lead
car in a funeral procession
with 20 miles an hour its top
speed. Needless to say, my
frustration level was about to
boil over.
I wheeled into the parking
lot and as I swung the car to
the right into a parking lane
looking for a spot, I was
forced to hit the brakes,
because there, directly in
front of me, walking up the
middle of the aisle was a
woman and a little girl. I grit-
ted my teeth and my jaw
clenched as I thought, "What
is the problem with these
people? This lane is plenty
wide enough that they could
walk along one side and not
hold up traffic (meaning me)
or endanger their lives." I lit-
erally had to come to a stop
till they moved over to my left.
I was debating making some
cutting remark to the woman
as she walked past my open
window, but just as they came


opposite me, a child's voice
rang out.
"Thank you, mister. That
was nice of him to wait for us,
wasn't it, Mommy?" Her
curled little finger waved to
me and she gave me a smile
that made the Mona Lisa look
like a scrooge.
My first thought was that
her parents) had done an
excellent job raising her. My
second was how rare it is to
find a child so polite and so
cute. If there were more chil-
dren as polite, charming and
happy as this little girl, maybe
there would be hope for the
younger generation. It is the'
little things in life that make
the most lasting impression.
And the lasting impression
that little event made on me is
that perhaps it isn't always the
behavior and manners of the
younger generation that one
needs worry about.
And that's my two cents
worth ...

Trip to youth games in Australia rewarding in many ways


BY LAURA DORSEY
GUEST WRITER'

Australia, Down Under, the
land of kangaroos and Croc-
odile Dundee is a wonderful
;; place.
S Last summer, our family
-i had the pleasure of traveling
There for my son, Justin, to
participate in the People To
Y. People International Youth
ii; Friendship Games.
SPeople to People is an
Organization that was started
in .1956 and was originated
by Dwight D. Eisenhower. It
was a means by which young
People from all across the
Continents join together, in
Steam spirit, to compete in a
Variety of sporting- events.
But it is so much more than
just a competition. It is. a
learning experience that
involves travel, dedication to
team, motivation to succeed.
It teaches people skills, how
to get along with others,


meeting new people and
learning about different cul-
tures all packed into seven-
10 days.
I decided not only to per-
mit Justin to participate in
the event, but to travel along
and to bring his 80-year-old
grandmother with us as well.
So, on July 4, Independence
Day, (how fitting) we were off
to Australia. The entire ex-
perience from beginning to
end was incredible. I, at the
suggestion of the organizers,
traveled separately and
Justin was on his own. He
made the journey with the
group and was even in lodg-
ing far from where I was. I
had more trepidation about
this arrangement than he
did, of course.
People to People started
prepping Justin and all of us,
well in advance of the trip. He
had to pass an interview that
determined he was "adult"
enough to make a journey of


this magnitude, and "com-
mitted" enough to complete
all the tasks required of him
- a truly incredible educa-
tional experience.
We looked forward to the
trip for months and it was our
topic of conversation quite
regularly. Justin's grandmoth-
er, who had never traveled
abroad, was the most excited
of all. Her clothes were pack-
ed months in advance, her
passport was purchased and
off she went. .
It is winter in Australia
when it's summer in the
United States, so it was migh-
ty cold in most of the coun-
try. We started our trip in
Caines, which is much furth-
er north and had a tropical
climate similar to that of
Florida. Five days later we
arrived in Sydney where the
games would be held at the
Olympic Grounds. It was
considerably colder there.
The participants' team cere-


monies were actually at
Olympic Stadium, the same
stadium used for the 2002
Summer Games of the Olym-
pics. There was an opening
and a closing ceremony very
similar to real Olympic events.
Grandma and I went to
every practice and every
game. Justin was in baseball
and through this made
friends across the world that
he will never forget. The peo-
ple in Australia are the most
friendly, courteous and giving
people we have ever encoun-
tered. They offered their
fields, their support, their as-
sistant in providing food and
snacks for the kids during the
events. It was phenomenal.
The boys learned that they
didn't like Aussie hot dogs, but
they did love their meat pies!
And they learned all the Aussie
sporting chants, how to play
rugby and learned how much
these people love their sports.
They also are very conscien-


tious about protecting the
environment, not littering,
conscious of water usage, et
cetera. Australia has many
issues because of its limited
water supply and Australians
are cautious about waste of
any kind. We can learn a lot
from these people and indeed,
we did. They are quite an
inspiring culture.
Sydney is absolutely awe-
some and as we arrived at
our hotel in late evening, we
opened the blinds in our
room to look directly at the
illuminated Sydney Bridge
and the Opera House.' It was
breathtaking.
Justin's team tied for the
Gold Medal, and at every
game Justin can remember
his grandma sitting on the
sidelines cheering. This has
taken on special meaning
with her passing on Oct. 1,
just three months after our
journey. A grandmother's
dedication and love for her


grandson is something im-
measurable. We were blessed
to have her and especially
blessed to have shared this
special trip with her. In the
erd, we are all the same and
the material things we have
are truly meaningless. It is the
memories we create that
"make the difference" and it's
the difference that we make
that changes the world. Our
family is committed to leav-
ing the world a better place
than we found it. We are
committed to remembering
that family is of the utmost
importance, and at the end
of the day It's all about love.
A love to travel, a love of nat-
ure and her beauty and the
love of a grandmother will-
ing to travel thousands of
miles to see just one little
boy play baseball.

Pileated woodpecker looks



a lot like the rare ivory bill


RBC Centura honors

Venice teacher in tribute

to teachers program


' BYTOMUHLENBROCK
GUEST WRITER


Reports that the ivory-
billed woodpecker had been
a spotted in anArkansas swamp
resulted in similar sightings
Throughout its historic range
Sin the Southeast.
S Suddenly, a rare bird that
- had been seen nowhere for
-"' 60 ears was everywhere.
State agencies responded
5 by pointing out that the bird
Being spotted was not the
ivory bill, but its common
" cousin, the pileated wood-
pecker.
S Andy Forbes, a wildlife
. ecologist with the Missouri


Department of Conservation,
issued a news release saying
that all of the reports receiv-
ed in his state had turned out
to be sightings of pileated
woodpeckers.
"With the Arkansas dis-
covery so much on people's
minds, it is understandable
that many people would
think of the ivory bill when
:iheV:see'.a big, black-and-
\.'hire woodpecker' ift theiff
yards or on an outing," Forbes
said. "I would never say it is
impossible for an ivory-billed
woodpecker to turn up in suit-
able habitat in Missouri.
However, the chances are very
slim."


Philip Bowman, a biologist
with the Louisiana Depart-
ment of Wildlife in Baton
Rouge, said his department
had received more than a
dozen calls. "They're seeing
them all over the place,"
Bowman said.
Like ivory bills, pileated
woodpeckers have black-
and-white feathers, and the
males:have 'red patohesio) onr
their heads. The, ivory bill is
about 20 inches long, 4
inches larger than the pileat-
ed.
But the ivory bill has a
light-colored beak and white
feathers on the lower half of
its wings. The distinctive tri-
angle of white is easily seen
when it perches, and the
wings are white on the top
and bottom when it flies.
The pileated has a black bill
and black wings, with only a
small patch of white under
the wings, near the armpits.
Among other differences:
Ivory-billed woodpeckers
historically have lived only on
large tracks- of bottomland
hardwood forest, such as the
Cache River National Wildlife
Refuge, where the bird was
sighted in Arkansas. Pileated
woodpeckers live in a variety
of forest habitats, and have
been known to show up at
backyard suet feeders.
Ivory bills have black
chins. Pileateds are white.
The ivory bill's call sounds
like a child's tin horn. The
call of the pileated is a loud,
raucous cackling that rever-
berates over the woods.


The pileated swoops, or
undulates, in flight, while the
ivory bill glides on out-
stretched wings.
-The ivory bill may not
have been spotted outside of
the Arkansas swamp, but
that hasn't deterred birders
from looking harder at areas
where it once lived. In
-Missouri, the most. likely
spots; ,:would. Jibe bMingo:
:National Wildlife Repage and,
Big Oak Tree State Park,
which have Missouri's larg-
est remnants of bottomland
hardwood forest.
Researchers also may re-
visit the Pearl River Wildlife
Management Area near Sli-
dell, La., where an ivory bill
was reported in 1999. That
sighting resulted in a 30-day
search that failed to turn up
evidence of the bird.
David Luneau, a professor
of electronics and computers
at the University of Arkansas
at Little Rock, has been in
charge of the effort to photo-
graph the ivory bill in Ar-
kansas using remote cam-
eras. So far, he has a blurry
image on video of a large
black bird with white on its
wings flying at a distance
through the cypress trees.
Luneau also was one of
the six searchers that looked
for the ivory bill in Louisiana,
and said it might be time to
give the Pearl River area a
second look.
"In light of what I know
now, you just can't give up,"
Luneau said. "I'd say it could
be there."

er said no, they were made of

Rene, a caring housekeeper,
came and zapped them up
with her vacuum.
Per the Gondolier, the bugs
have no chewing mouth
parts, so are incapable of eat-
ing mosquitoes as rumors
have had it, but live in
swampy humid areas, "mak-
ing Florida major roads, with
their major swales, a haven
for lovebugs." If we wanted to
curtail tourism in California
and keep it all here in Florida,
we could export lovebugs to
the West Coast.
I don't like bugs, but these
bugs fascinate me. They don't
have to work, support a fami-
ly and have no time for a wed-
ding. They just do it and that's
that. They don't even support
their children.
Seems to me they have it
pretty darned easy. Why in the
world do these bugs exist
since most creatures have


some redeeming purpose in
life? Maybe they exist so that
we can be grateful for when
they are gone. I dunno!

LINN From last Green Sheet
some robust painting of the
1700s when women still wore
corsets. I have personally
seen drag queens on Bour-
bon Street that had more
modesty. If ariy one of these
women had come into work
wearing pasties, I would have
gone home sick.
However, the lack of an
accurate definition of busi-
ness casual can often run in
the opposite extreme. Once I
worked at a clothing store
where my manager had a
hang up or two about show-
ing off her arms. Her hang up,
therefore, became our pun-
ishment under the hot
Florida sun, where in the
summer months, as many of
us know, it's like living inside
of a sponge.


Despite the fact that there
was nothing in the corporate
employee handbook regard-
ing not wearing sleeveless,
her employees were not
allowed to wear sleeveless
simply because she didn't like
it. Now, that rule seems like it
might be a good idea except
for one problem: The store
sold sleeveless clothes..
When I complained to a
friend about my boss's dis-
taste for sleeveless clothing,
being that it was Florida and
all, imyfriend replied, "Let me
get this straight. You can't
wear the clothes that you
sell?" My friend had a valid
point.
Men and women also
seem to have very different
ideas about what business
casual means.
When you tell a man to


wear business casual, you
could get anything from flip
flops and a baseball cap to a
more dressy pair of khakis
and docksiders.
I worked with one guy at a
bookstore who either had a
weird idea about what looked
good or had a bad moth prob-
lem in his closet. His clothes
were always torn, and in the
most unusual places. One
day, he came in with a hole in
his jeans the size of a piece of
copy paper over the back of
his right thigh.
"Mothballs. This guy needs
some mothballs," I thought to
myself.
A kinder man would have
worn along pair of boxer shorts
to cover the hole. Nope. Fruit of
the Loom all the way.
Women, on the other
hand, seem to interpret the


loosely defined business
casual as sexy. The more skin
shown, the better. Women
almost seem to try to see just
how little they can get away
with wearing. (Please refer to
above experiences.)
Perhaps business casual is
a definition on exactly how
much skin a person can show
off and get away with. It just
works in different ways for
men and women. Where
women lean toward sexy,
men just ... well, who knows
what men do.
I say if employers want
their employees to show less
skin, define business casual a
bit better. Define it in surface
area shown, rather than by
fabrics.

Could," I secretly wished that
Lauren Kelly would get up off
the stairs and walk around alit-
tle bit.
All of the actresses, despite
the quality of their perfor-
mances, needed to get up and
move around more. I had to
rely on the play's distinct sub-
ject matter to keep me interest-
ed. People tend to be visual,
and movement is always good
for keeping play audiences
stimulated.
There was one place where
the traditional casting didn't
work in Kollar's production,
and the double casting in


MacCluggage's production was
more effective. In the segment,
"My Vagina Was My Village,"
the two polar opposite tones of
the monologue were offset by
different lighting and tone of
voice. However, the transition
between the two roles one of
a woman who believed her
vagina to be her home, and the
other whose vagina had been
mutilated in the name of war
-was too quick. If perhaps the
transition had been slowed, the
technique would have been
effective. Nevertheless, I pre-
ferred MacCluggage's take on
this monologue to Kollar's.

There were some mono-
logues that used a different
tone in Kollar's version, mak-
ing them enjoyable the sec-
ond time around. Leanne
Hanson performed the
monologue entitled "Hair." In
MacCluggage's version, the
actress who performed this
role was more comical. How-
ever, the subject matter was
very unnerving, and Hanson
seemed like she was just
angry enough at her hus-
band, who insisted that she
shave her vagina.
While this omission was
only a small distraction from


the play, the play's direction
left me wondering why Kelly
was omitted from the rest of
the ensemble only to be
brought in for her part and for
the curtain call.
Overall, -the production
has merit, and is different
from the first. Patrons who
missed the first production
would do. well to see Kollar's
take. However, if a theatergo-
er saw MacCluggage's ver-
sion, they would be able to
get a whole new perspective
from Kollar's direction, mak-
ing it a different experience
and worthy of seeing.

Strawberry picking


Create handicapped-accessible gardening


PHOTO COURTESY OF CHRISTINA SKELTON
Bob Peters of Nokomis traveled to Manatee County pick
strawberries at the hydroponic growers.


STAFF REPORT

When visions of gardening
come to mind, more often
than not the picture is of a
person on hands and knees
tending to the blooms and
picking weeds. This may be
disheartening for handicap-
ped individuals who long to
garden. However, by making
a few changes to your garden
landscape, you, too can enjoy
gardening despite any physi-
cal obstacles you might face.
Raised garden beds
If you are confined to a
wheelchair or have mobility
issues, you understand the
problems ground-level gar-
dens present. The solution is
to raise those gardens to lev-
els- that provide you with easy
access. A garden that is
approximately 30 inches tall
will offer ease of reach. Raised
garden beds can be achieved
by framing out a shape with


timber, or you could rely on
one of the all-inclusive kits
many stores and online retail-
ers offer. Keep in mind that
your raised bed shouldn't be
too wide, or else you won't be
able to comfortably reach the
center of the garden.
When filling your garden
bed, look for blooms that will
offer maximum impact with
little maintenance. There are
several varieties of colorful
annuals that will fit the bill
and that only require periodic
watering and feeding to look
their best..
Pathways to the garden
It is important to create a
series of pathways that lead
through your garden that you
should be able to navigate
easily. While it is fine to leave
these pathways covered in
grass or wood chips, this may
not allow for the best mode of
travel in a wheelchair or with
a cane or walker. Pea gravel,


which will compact during
use, is a viable option, as well
as brick or paving stones.
Allow for an ample turning
radius so you can comfort-
ably get to and fro within your
garden. A solid-surface path-
way will also have another
advantage: reducing the
amount of weeding and
maintenance your garden
will require outside of the
raised garden beds.
Tools for use
Many common gardening
tools are unwieldy to use for
those with disabilities. How-
ever, with a few modifications
you may be able to make
them work for you. A toolbelt
commonly used to carry
around hammers, screw-
drivers and wrenches can be
used to tote watering bottles,
pruning shears and shovels.
There are also specialty man-
ufacturers who offer ergo-
nomic tools (ideal for those


suffering from arthritis or
.other degenerative disorders
that diminish hand function)
and enabling tools that might
be more in tune with your
needs. Don't overlook the
advantages of purchasing
"helpers" such as foam knee
pads, lightweight gardening
carts, rolling garden seats,
and extended gardening
wands that can make work
easier for you.
Tight spaces
If you don't have the room
for raised garden beds but
want to take advantage of the
beauty and self-fulfillment of'
gardening, look for plants
that grow vertically. Roses,
grapes, ivy and other plants
that can be trained to grow on
trellises allow for easy picking
of flowers or vegetables.
For more information on
gardening with your unique
needs in mind, consult your
local garden center.


Kids and trees grow with environmental three Rs


STAFF REPORT

Every day in America, each
man, woman and child gen-
erates nearly four pounds of
trash. That's over one trillion
pounds of solid waste or 365
trillion pounds each year. It's
a staggering statistic when
you consider the environ-
mental effect that much
garbage has on our fragile
ecosystem.
As adults, it's easy to forget
the importance of the 3 Rs
our world depends on-reduc-
ing, reusing and recycling-for
the health and safety of future
generations. It's those future
generations-our children-
that will hear 'the conse-,
quences of today's environ-
mental mismanagement, un-
less an effort is made to im-
prove on current behaviors.
For the third year, one
hotel companyis stepping up
to the task, helping kids to
think globally and act locally
by educating them on how to
properly care for the environ-
ment. With help from The
National Arbor Day
Foundation, Doubletree
Hotels is distributing an envi-
ronmentally focused lesson
plan that provides the frame-
work for taking would-be


waste and recycling it into
artistic treasures to thou-
sands of elementary school
students in the U.S. and
Canada.
The education initiative is
an extension of the hotel's
Teaching Kids to CARE pro-
gram, a community outreach
initiative that pairs hotel
properties with elementary
schools and youth groups to
educate children about mak-
ing conscious decisions
about environmental care.
This spring, Teaching Kids to
CARE volunteers and chil-
dren will create "litter crit-
ters," a reduced, reused and
recycled representation of
animals in the world hurt' b'i'
litter, and will plant more
than 10,000 seedling trees
across the U.S. and Canada.
For those parents (and
mentors) wanting to engage
their kids (or nieces, nephews
and grandkids) in environ-
mentally conscious activities,
here are a few tips:
1. Recycling is Fun -
Pass it On- Recycling isn't all
about aluminum cans and
old newspapers. Encourage
your kids to start their own
recycling program in which
they share old toys, books and
games with their friends and


ii

Get your kids involved in easy recycling habits early.


classmates. One child's trash
is another child's treasure and
by "passing it on," kids will
learn that they can reduce
waste by recycling their old


things so that others can
reuse them.
2. Become a Habitat
Hero Challenge your chil-
dren to gather up all their


friends and classmates to
help clean up a park or
schoolyard (with parental
supervision). Whoever col-
lects the most trash wins the
"Habitat Hero" award and
prize (as decided on by you).
3. Plant a "Family Tree",
- Take your kids to a garden
or home store and allow them
to help pick out a young tree.
(Make sure to check that it
can survive in your climate
region.) Plant the tree in a
special location as a family,
assigning a different task (dig-
ging, planting, watering) to
each family member. Make
sure to document the activity
with a photo, so kids can
remember how small the tree
was when they planted it.
4. You CAN Make a Di-
fference Encourage your
children to save empty alu-
minum cans, then take a
weekly trip to a nearby "Cash
for Cans" drop-off location.
Decide with your kids how
best to use the money they've
collected from their recycling
efforts to better the environ-
ment. Options to consider
include volunteering for tree
planting projects, adopting a
local stretch of highway to be
beautified and maintained or
donating the money to a local


environmental organization.
5. Pulp to Paper- This
fun, hands-on project shows
kids how old newspapers are
recycled back into fresh
newspapers. Have your child
tear a half page of newspaper
into small, one-inch pieces.
Fill buckets or bowls with
one-part newspaper and
two-parts water and let soak
for several hours. Using a
hand mixer, "pulp" the fibers
in the paper until the mixture
looks like mush. Take a hand-
ful of pulp and place it on a
'piece of felt, molding it to the
size of the piece of paper you
want to make, and press it
firmly to, squeeze out excess
\\ after. Let-,the~paperidry-for :
one or two days and voilM.
Remember, proper waste
management not only helps
save the environment, it also
helps save energy, reduce pol-
lution and protect animals
around the world. A small
effort from your kids today
can guarantee a healthier,
greener tomorrow.

for the environment and

own neighborhood, visit the

STAFF REPORT


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson is
urging Florida residents to
have a plan ready for their
pets and livestock in the
event of a hurricane; .,
'An approaching hurri-

in the event of an evacuation
or even power outage,"
Bronson said. "The time to
have the plan in place is well
before' a storm is bearing
down."
Pet owners should keep ID
tags and vaccinations up to
date. They should also pre-
pare a disaster kit to take if
they bring along their pets
during an evacuation or to
bring to a shelter or boarding
facility. It should include:
food and water for at least
three days for each pet and a
manual can opener; vaccina-
tion records,' medications
and medical records stored in
a waterproof container; writ-
ten information on medical


conditions, behavior prob-
lems and contact numbers
for the veterinarian; sturdy:

ers to transport pets safely;

identify them in the event
people become separated

People who own horses
should also make advance
arrangements to shelter the

should also have a supply of
Water, hay, feed and medica-

If it is not possible to
evacuate a horse, owners
should make sure every ani-

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

CENTEX CD GUIDES HOMEBUYER


Photo provided
A PLETHORA OF FLOORING TILES are available to select from
when you purchase a new Centex Homes residence. Their new
Design Solutions CD informs customers about the composition,
merits and suggested uses for the different types of tile materials.

CD fulfills selection process needs


STAFF REPORT
Anyone who has ever
bought or built a
Snew home knows
that there are literally
hundreds of design deci-
sions to be made in the
process. The Sarasota
division of Centex Homes,
however, has teamed with
Bridgeway Media Group to
develop a unique tool to
prepare their customers for
making these decisions in
an informed, unstressed
and timely manner.
An educational and
informative compact disk is
given to customers at the
time they sign a purchase
contract for a Centex
Homes residence.
By giving the customer
information in advance of
decision-making time, this


step of home buying really
becomes the fun part.
Mindy Oar, who is the
Selection Studio manager-
says, "We are excited about
the ability to give this CD
to our customers and help
them demystify the design
selection process."
The CD includes an
approximately 13-minute
video tour and covers such
things as what to expect
with the color selection
process, design basics, tips
and guidelines on color
schemes, and selections
that will increase resale
value.
For additional resources,
there is a lifestyle question-
naire which helps to define
the customer's personal
wants and needs.
A companion Web site is
-yww.designmeeting.com.
