Wider 1-75 coming


Interstate 75 is going to be widened, but in pieces
that will be under construction until 2025.


STAFF REPORT

The superhighway of the
future will one day be found
in Southwest Florida.
Nearly 200,000 vehicles
travel Interstate 75 at certain
points now, and that number
could double or triple in the
next two decades.
By then more specifi-
cally by 2025 -1-75 will be at
least six lanes from Manatee
County to Alligator Alley and
could be as wide as 10 lanes
in some sections.
That is, if the state sticks
with its 1-75 Tentative Work
Program for District 1 of the


way first expands to six lanes.
Construction work is sched-
uled to start in 2009 and cost
more than $79.3 million.
The second is a 32-mile
section from Golden Gate
Boulevard in Collier County to
Palm Beach Boulevard (State
Road 80) in Fort Myers. That
project is expected to start
sometime in 2007 and cost
about $469 million.'
The timeframe to widen
the section between Venice
and Fort Myers which
includes the North Port and
Charlotte County sections
and about a mile of DeSoto
County is still unknown.


"They need six lanes to move traffic now. More
lanes would certainly be needed in the future. An
authority would help make that happen sooner."


DeI


Florida Department of Trans-
portation..
Only two sections have
money for actual construc-
tion. ,
One is an 8-mile section
in Sarasota County between
River Road inVenice and State
Road 681 (mile marker 200)
near Osprei, where the high-

That work depends on many
factors, money being the
largest.
Each section is prioritized
based on need, said Ben
Walker of FDOT.
His agency's plans are criti-
cal for future development
and coordination with other
roadprojectis.


Merger
In Sarasota County, the
first widening will allow the
county to use part of the ex-
isting interstate to extend
Pinebrook Road in Venice to
link to Honore Avenue as a
route to Sarasota. That project
will be, done concurrently
with the 1-75 widening.
The North Port and Char-
lotte sections are currently
funded through, the design
phase, Walker said.
"Charlotte County is divid-
ed into numerous projects,"
Walker said.
Those sections are broken
down into segments which
generally follow the exits.
This is done so. projects can
be kept more manageable as
far as costs are concerned.
FDOT spokeswoman Deb-
bie Tower said projects such
as the Lee and Collier work
can be merged to save costs
as well:
"That is being done as a
design-build project, which.
speeds up the process," Tower
said. "It will be completed in
three years and paid for over
five years."
Once the preliminary de-
sign of any section is com-
pleted, there will be public
hearings and then the final
design will be forwarded to
Federal Highway Adminis-
tration for final approval.
When that approval is

to cross, and one of them is
asphalt.
Near the Bird Bay Shop-
ping Center, the railroad
tracks will run across six
lanes of a busy roadway, U.S.
41 Bypass.
Instead of running the
trail directly across- the busy
section of road, according to
Mary Ellen Maurer, county
project manager for Rails to
Trails, the county's solution
is to divert the trail south on
the west side of 41 Bypass to
the Bird Bay Drive traffic light,
and back north again on the
east side of the 41 Bypass to
connect with the corridor.
This solution does not
take into account heavy traf-
fic on the trail. According to
the Department of Transpor-
tation, the light at Bird Bay
Drive is not pedestrian con-
trolled. Therefore, trail users
will not slow down the traffic.
However, trail users will have
to wait for the traffic light to
stop traffic before they cross,
possibly encouraging people
to cross at a non-designated
area. At thistime there are no
plans to make the light
pedestrian controlled.
Nor does the solution ad-
dress races on the trail.
"When there is a race, I
suppose they can just shut
down. that section of road,"
said Susan Walsh, public
works communications man-
ager for Sarasota County.
Maurer said an overpass
for this stretch of trail is not
in the works. Walsh said one
would be too expensive.
However, Maurer did say
that if traffic delays occurred
with the Bird Bay Drive solu-
tion, an overpass would not

This section of rail is the start of the Rails to Trails project, due
for completion late 2007 or early 2008. In this map provided
by Sarasota County, the rails-to-trails path is shown by the
dark line through the center of the map. The trail is planned to
begin at the Venice Train Depot and go north to just south of
Clark Road. That part of the trail will be 12.4 miles long.


The Venice Charter Re-
view Committee decided
Thursday on the recommen-
dations for code changes it
will make to Venice City
Council, but not before fin-
ally getting some of the
community participation it
has been looking for since it
started meeting.
None of those comments,
however, persuaded the
coninmitee members not to
reaffirm the consensus they
had reached on the issues
in early May.
The committee Chair-
man Greg Roberts, Greg
Shanika, Diana Mier, Jim
Leis and Jean Trammell -
was given the task of evalu-
ating four proposed changes
to the city charter: allowing
the city manager to fire or
suspend the police and fire
chiefs, and to launch man-
agement audits of city
departments, without city
council consent; eliminat-
ing the charter officer status
of the finance director; and
eliminating the one-year
waiting period to run for
mayor for a council member
who has reached his or her
nine-year term limit.
The committee had al-
ready voted preliminarily to
recommend three of the
changes and, on advice
from City Attorney Bob
Anderson, had concluded
that the city manager al-
ready has the power to
order management audits,
rendering that issue moot.


Six residents a crowd,
compared to the audience
at most of the committee's
meetings showed up
Thursday to challenge its
thinking on the other three.
Both Ted Yeatts, a former
city council member, and
Herb Levine, president of the
Venice Taxpayers League,
opposed changing the fi-
nance director's status.
"I think that will come
back to haunt the city in a
terrible way," Yeatts said.
"City council needs to remain
the boss in that respect."

JOINT WORKSHOP
Venice City Council and the
Charter Review Community
will hold a joint meeting
Wednesday, June 28, at 1:30
p.m. in the Community Room
at city hall, 401 W. Venice


"If you take away another
department and put it under
the city manager," Levine
said, "that much less informa-
tion will go to city council.
The result will be a council
run by the city manager. If
that's the case, why do we
need a city council?"
But the real safeguard is
proper controls, regardless of
who is technically the finance
director's boss, according to
Jon Preiksat.
"You're not going to pre-
vent fraud ... even if it's just
(people) cheating on their
timecards," he said.
He was concerned,

rrITLE KNOWN FAMOUS FLORIDUNS
BY JOE "FASTHORSE" HARRILL





















JOHN GORRIE was an early pioneer in the development of
manmade ice, mechanical refrigeration and air condition-
ing. Dr. Gorrie's apparatus for cooling air was first used to
treat yellow-fever patients when an epidemic struck -
Apalachicola, Fla., in 1841. He was convinced that cold
could cure the fever. Gorrie was granted a U.S. patent for
his ice-making machine in 1851, which remains the most
widely used method of cooling today. Although Gorrie is
recognized as "The Father of Refrigeration" he never
received any royalties from his invention.

Bringing golf


back to earth


It's just too hot to play golf.
Pass by a golf course and
what do you see? Men and
women walking around and
swinging clubs under a blaz-
ing sun. That's not healthy.
Even cows know enough to lie
in the shade of a tree when the
sun is high.
Last week, while driving
through Georgia, Tropical Bob
thought of a solution. We need
golf in the shade. And pecan
groves showed the way.
'Call this variation Ground
Golf. In Ground Golf, no ball is
hi: high. Every shot must roll
along the ground under rows
of shady trees. We'll play on
Par Tree courses.
Cool idea, huh?

STAFF REPORT

The Venice Citizens Tax
Oversight Committee closed
the books Friday on the reno-
vation of the Venice Com-
munity Center, with one bill
still to be paid.
The architect is still owed
about $4,400, but the check
isn't in the mail.
"We do owe him the
money," said City Manager
Marty Black, "but he owes us
a little bit of work before we
pay him."
The only issue that con-
cerned board members was
who is responsible for repairs
or upgrades to the facility.
Maxine Barritt said she had

heard complaints about the
new sound system and won-
dered if money would be
available to improve it.
The center is owned by the
city but operated by Sarasota
County under an agreement
settling a dual-taxation dis-
pute with the cities. Con-
sequently, capital expenses
are the city's burden.
The sound system is the
one that was supposed to be
installed, Black said, and it's a
substantial upgrade over the
old one.
"There have been some
complaints," he said, "be-
cause people thought we
were building a performing
arts center, and we didn't."
If residents had "stepped
up" to fund it, an even better
sound system could have
been put in, Black said. As far
as repairs go, he said, much of
the facility is under warranty.
Barritt asked whether the
city could take back the man-
agement of the facility.
"You could," Black said,
"but you would have to add
six to seven employees and
about a $600,000 budget.
'You can suggest that in the
budget process," he added
with a smile. "I won't. There's
no profit in running the com-
munity center. It's a big hole."


Mothballed
Black told the committee
members they'd be called on
later this year to help push for
the renewal of the county's 1-
cent sales surtax, assuming
city council votes to partici-
pate. The tax, which expires
next year, has funded a num-
ber of capital improvements
in the city, including the com-
munity center renova-
tions. The county allocated
$500,000 in 1-cent revenue,
and the city of Venice $700,00.
The members will also get
a chance to identify projects
to spend future 1-cent funds
on if county voters approve it.
The money coming in under
the current referendum is
already committed.
One possible use of the
money would be to demolish
the Circus Arena. The Airport
Advisory Board voted Wed-
nesday to recommend to city
council that the building,
which is on airport property,
be torn down using any funds
that are available.
There's money in airport
reserves that could accom-
plish the task, Black said, but
it would wipe them out. The
cost currently is estimated at
about $800,000, with a good
deal of that due tb the pres-
ence of asbestos in building

Sarasota County receives
'All-America' designation
The citizens of Sarasota County received the designation of
"All-America County" at the 57th Annual All-America City Awards
in Anaheim, Calif. i
The county is one of 10 communities in 2006 to receive
the prestigious designation by the National Civic League. The
award recognizes citizen-led efforts in neighborhoods, cities,
counties and regions that improve'the quality of life for all. It
also encourages and recognizes civic excellence, honoring
the communities in which citizens, government, businesses
and non-profit organizations demonstrate successful resolution
of critical community issues. Since 1949, more than 4,000
communities have participated and nearly 500 have been
recognized as an All-America City.
"I think that it is truly recognition of the community we
live in. We are so blessed with outstanding caring and
giving individuals who help others and rally to preserve and
enhance our way of life and our environment," stated County
Commissioner Shannon Staub.
The award application showcased three "community
building" stories that are "best in their class" at addressing
dynamic community challenges:
* The Neighborhood Environmental Stewardship Team
(NEST), a volunteer organization that raises awareness of our
native habitats.
* "A Special Time" and "Comfort Connection," non-profit, non-
denominational caregiver respite programs offering relief to
caregivers of adult patients.
* Home Computers for Sarasota County Students, a
community network of businesses and individuals who donate
upgraded used home computers to students whose families
cannot afford to buy them.
These stories help citizens become more understanding,
compassionate and successful in finding solutions to community
challenges. Self-organizing community teams also create the
future they want for their families and neighborhood.
Organizations such as SCOPE (Sarasota County Openly
Plans for Excellence) serve as a vehicle to help citizens do
these types of initiatives. SCOPE breathes life into stories
highlighted by ensuring that everyone has a role in making the
county a viable community.
"This award is something for our citizens to remember and
build upon for many years to come. Being recognized as an
All-America County is something to be proud of and confirms
the power of community-led initiatives. This recognition will have
a long-lasting effect on the Sarasota community," said County
Commission Chairman David Mills.
The Sarasota County School District also plays a key role in
collaborating with citizens to make the county a better place in
which to grow up and receive an excellent education.
"The district and the county government share a common
vision creating the finest living and learning community in
the nation," noted Sarasota County Schools Superintendent
Dr. Gary Norris. "We are well on our way to achieving that
vision through collaborative efforts of the two organizations and
the support of our involved citizens. Earning the All-America
County designation validates Sarasota County's commitment to
excellence and caring."

No change in basin

board millage rate


STAFF REPORT

At its June 14 meeting, the
Southwest FloridaWater Man-
agement District's Manasota
Basin Board adopted a pro-
posed fiscal year 2007 millage
rate of 0.160 mill, which is the
same as the current fiscal year.
For the owner of a $125,000
home with a $25,000 home-
stead exemption, the FY2007
basin board tax would be $16,
or about $1.33 per month.
The Manasota Basin Board
area includes Manatee and
Sarasota counties.
The proposed budget for
FY2007 is $22,943,451, which
is an increase of $2,707,918
from the approved FY2006
budget. The main reason for
this increase is additional
revenue anticipated from the
state Water Protection and
Sustainability program for
alternative water supply de-
velopment assistance. FY2007
will run from Oct. 1, 2006,
through Sept. 30, 2007.
The Manasota Basin
Board's proposed FY2007
budget includes Cooperative
Funding projects. These pro-
jects are proposed by local
governments, and are usilally
funded equally by the basin
board and the local coopera-
tor. Of the basin board fund-
ing, $2 million is tentatively
budgeted for FY2007 for land
acquisition, easement ex-
penses, and the non-federal
share of construction.
Alternatives
The basin board's proposed
budget also includes $4.3 mil-
lion for the Water Supply and
Resource Development pro-
gram, which provides match-
ing funds for the development
of additional new sustainable


water supplies.
One of the Water Supply
and Resource Development
projects is the Myakka River
Watershed Initiative, which
will give the district the scien-
tific foundation to restore the
natural systems, improve
flood protection and water
quality and investigate future
alternative water supply
sources within the watershed.
The watershed occupies
about 600 square miles within
DeSoto, Manatee, Sarasota,
and Charlotte counties and
discharges into Charlotte
Harbor, a Surface Water Im-
provement and Management
program water body.
The total cost for these
three elements is estimated at
about $4.7 million.
Water budget
In February, the district's
governing board transferred
$500,000 from Water Supply
and Resource Development
reserves to hire consultants to
obtain digital topographic
information in eastern Man-
atee County and to initiate
the water budget analysis for
the Upper Myakka, water-
shed.
A water budget analysis
determines how much water
is available from each differ-
ent source and how it used.
The FY2007 funding, which is
$2.1 million, will continue the
Upper Myakka water budget
analysis, the watershed evalu-
ation for the entire watershed
and initiate the Watershed
Management Plan element.
The FY2007 funding is
divided as follows: $599,083
from the governing board,
$538,321 from the Manasota
Basin Board, $68,729 from the
Peace River Basin Board, and


Planners prioritize regional road projects


BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

Fourteen representatives
from the Sarasota-Manatee
and Charlotte metropolitan
planning organizations met
Thursday to determine the
2006 Transportation Regional
Incentive Program project
priority list.
The TRIP program was
established in 2005 by House
Bill 360 to offer extra money
from the state for road pro-
jects. It set aside $1.6 billion
to fund projects over a 10-
year period. This year the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation will award $18.5
million in TRIP funds for
fiscal years 2007 through
2010 for District One, which
encompasses 12 counties.
The list
In order of priority, the
project list this year includes:
$13 million widening of
U.S. 301 from Erie Road to
Fort Hamer Road in Manatee
County.


$850,000 from 2006 legislative
appropriations. Additional
funding in future fiscal years
is contingent upon basin
board approval.
About the boards
The district has eight re-
gional basin boards that pro-
vide guidance for local pro-
grams specific to the water-
shed basins they protect.
The district's ninth basin, the
Green Swamp, is adminis-.
tered by the governing board.
Basin boards work with
local, governments and other
entities on water resource
projects that have an impact
in local communities. Basin

boards often provide partial
funding for these projects in
partnership with a local gov-
ernment or local cooperator.
Basin board members are
unpaid citizen volunteers ap-
pointed by the governor and
confirmed by the Senate.
They serve three-year stag-
gered terms.
Each of the basin boards
includes a,minimum of one
person from ea6h county
within the basin, and there
must be at least three mem-
bers on each board. Each
basin board has at least one of

officio.
The district's governing
board will adopt proposed
millage rates for the district's
General Fund and the eight
basin boards at its monthly
meeting in June at the dis-
trict's Brooksville headquar-
ters. These millage rates will
be used by county property
appraisers when mailing out
Truth In Millage notices to
residents.
Two statutorily required
public TRIM hearings on the
district's total budget will be
held in September. The first
will be Sept. 12 at 5:01 p.m. at
the district's Tampa Service
Office.


Green October?
North Port City Commis-
sioner Fred Tower, III, who is
vice chairman of the Sarasota-
Manatee MPO, was pleased
with the finalized list.
"I'm very happy," he said.-
"Especially about getting the
Toledo Blade widening on
there. That will be a really
good thing, both for Sarasota
and Charlotte counties."
Toledo Blade Boulevard
serves as a hurricane evacua-
tion route for both counties.
The MPO members will
take this list back to their
individual groups for ap-
proval. Once that is given, the
list will be forwarded to.FDOT,
which will then decide which
projects receive funding.
"We will vote on it at our
meeting on July 24," said
Mike Howe, the executive
director of the Sarasota-
Manatee MPO. "They typi-
cally make the announce-
ment in October."

The governor's office will
review and approve the bud-
gets of all five water manage-
ment districts before the sec-
ond and final public hearing.
The district's second and final
TRIM hearing will be Sept. 26
at 5:01 p.m. at the district's
Brooksville headquarters. At
the conclusion of the hearing,
the governing board will for-
mally adopt the final millage
rates and budgets.
The public is welcome to
attend any governing board
or basin board meetings to
provide comment on the pro-
posed budgets.

received, the purchase of
right of way can begin and
the construction to quickly
follow.
Our tum
Those steps can only hap-
pen if the money is available.
With Interstate 4 between
Orlando and Tampa getting
nearly all of the state's high-
way money for the past sev-
eral years, Tower said'it is
now Southwest Florida's turn
to receive highway money.
Another key is that the
interstate system is now on
the state Legislature's priority
list as part of its recent
growth management initia-
tive.
That initiative created the
Strategic Intermodal System,
a series of identified high-
ways, airports, ports and rail
lines that now receives 75
percent of all transportation
money out of the state
budget.
Because work relies so
heavily on available money,
Lee and Collier counties cre-
ated the Southwest Florida
Expressway Authority, which
is planning to develop a toll
speed-lane and bring the
highway in the two counties
to 10 lanes at some point,
Tower said. It was approved
by the Legislature in 2005.
"They need six lanes to
move traffic now," Tower said.
"More lanes would certainly
be needed in the future. An
authority would help make
that happen sooner."
The proposed four-lane
project would extend north
from Naples to the Southwest
Florida International Airport
southeast of Fort Myers, and
give motorists the option of
either driving toll free on the
existing 1-75 lanes or paying
to take express lanes that
have only a handful of exits.
Charlotte County would
be allowed t6 join the Ex-
pressway Authority at some
future date, after a positive
vote by Collier and Lee coun-
ties. Sarasota County is not"
involvedin the project.
Walker said that in Sara-
sota County, where there is
pressure to widen the road
to eight and even 10 lanes
in portions and add inter-
'changes, projects will be re-
evaluated as the demand
increases.
With the population
throughout Southwest Flor-
ida expected to double by
2025, Walker and Tower
both admitted that all widen-
ing projects are subject to
change based on demand
and need.

be out of the question, but
would need to be considered
at that time.
The Sarasota County Rails
to Trails project is due for
completion in late 2007 or
early 2008.

someone to serve on council
for 18 consecutive years; the

Preiksat's point resonated
with Trammell, who had
raised similar concerns over

In the end, Trammell voted
to recommend the change,

THE RECOMMENDATIONS
Here are the changes the Charter Review Committee will
recommend to city council for a November referendum:
Make the finance director an employee in the city manager's
office.
Give the city manager the authority to discipline the police
and fire chiefs without council approval.
Provide that no one may be elected to council or as mayor
for more than three consecutive terms (whole or partial) without
having to sit out a year, except a council member who has served
three terms may, run for mayor, or vice versa, without a waiting
period.
City council will vote in August on whether to put the measures
on the ballot. The deadline to submit them to the supervisor of .
elections is Sept. 8.


eliminating the one-year
hiatus at the committee's
prior meeting.
"I think we need to have
that window of opportunity,"
she said. "Otherwise, I think
we can get a little stagnant."
Roberts said he had had
the same qualms at first, but
had decided that allowing
only one person to hold
office for 18 years wasn't
risky.
"I see that as an unusual
case," he said. "I don't see
that as happening very
often."

Shanika went along with

Manager Brenda Miller. "Bus'
operators will benefit
because they won't have to
check the age
of each youth who boards a
bus. The drivers cannot
make change, but they often
are asked to do so, especially
with the 10-cent fares."
Passes can be purchased
from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.,
Monday through Friday, at
the SCAT facility, 5303
Pinkney Ave., Sarasota. Proof
of age is required. A school
identification card or- birth
certificate may be used. The
$10 pass can be purchased
with cash or check. Credit
cards are not accepted.
The pass is accepted on
all SCAT routes, excluding
SCAT Plus service and the
Veterans Bus. Passes must be
signed by the holder and are
not transferable. They must
be shown to the bus operator
before boarding.
The SCAT regular bus fare
is 50 cents per ride; or 25
cents for seniors (age 65 and
over) and persons with dis-
abilities.

Timber thinning in
Curry Creek Preserve
Sarasota County Natural
resources staff will be timber
cutting to thin pine trees in
selected areas at Curry Creek
Preserve in Venice through


June 23.
The cutting will take place
on the J. Miller and Water-
side Woods parcels within
the preserve, which is located
west of Pinebrook Road in
Venice (off Laurel Road, 1-75,
Exit 195).
According to Sarasota
County Environmental Spe-
cialist Jeff Weber, the cutting
will restore scrubby flat-
woods and scrub habitats for
Florida scrub jays, a species
that formerly lived on site. It
will also improve habitat for
gopher tortoises that cur-
rently inhabit the site. Both
are rare species that require
dry, open habitats to survive.
"Trees are being thinned
for habitat restoration and to
reduce the threat of wildfire
in the area," said Weber.
"Where possible, very large
trees, historic turpentine
trees and outstanding trees
will be saved."
During the thinning pro-
cess, trees are cut as close to
the ground as possible, using
a machine called a feller-
buncher. The felled logs are
dragged to a staging area by
a skidder and put onto tim-
ber trucks with a large grap-
ple-hook-equipped machine
known as a loader.
'All trees cut from Curry
Creek Preserve will be recy-
cled, in a sense, by being
used to build several rustic-
style buildings at the Cow-
boy Camp inside the Carlton
Reserve," added Weber. "The
camp will be open and avail-
able for public use in the
near future."
For more information on
the timber thinning program,
contact the Sarasota County
Call Center at 861-5000 and
ask for Natural Resources.

OUR VIEW




Global warming not an issue of party lines


.hen the National Wildlife Federation
and the Florida Wildlife Federation
set about to conduct a survey on
global warming, they didn't just look for
tree-huggers or Al Gore groupies. Actually,
they sought out more conservative types.
What they found might surprise you. To
begin with, of those who participated in
the poll, 62 percent voted for President Bush
in 2004.
Overall results of the poll showed that 80
percent of respondents agree that global
warming is real; 62 percent say it is caused
by fossil fuels; 93 percent agree America
is addicted to oil; 74 percent say we need
immediate action and 63 percent say we
are not doing enough to solve the problem.
Truly, global warming is a bipartisan is-


sue. And, the goal of the NWF and FWF is
to make everyone aware that global warm-
ing affects all of us and those in Florida
more than most areas of the U.S.
In less than 100 years much sooner if
the current trends continue Florida could
see a 15-inch rise in sea level. How does
that translate into impacts on our coast,
for example?
A 15-inch rise in sea level would elim-
inate 95 percent of our tidal flats the
shallows that are influenced by tides -
their seagrasses and the places where fish-
ing in outgoing tides is best.
The majority of our fish depend on this
habitat for survival. This is where grouper
feed and grow into adult fish that can be
harvested.


It might be easy to not worry about some-
thing that is 80 or 100 years away, but it is
wrong not to. After all, the kind of shape we
leave our environment in for our grandchil-
dren is our responsibility. And, in addition
to that responsibility that we all share, there
is no guarantee significant impacts won't be
realized much sooner.
Patty Glick, climate change specialist
with the National Wildlife Federation, said
20 percent of the polar ice cap has melted
since 1979. And more evidence of immed-
iate concern is the fact that our atmo-
sphere already contains 390 parts per
billion of carbon, according to the Vostok
Chart. That figure approaches the kind of
readings we had when dinosaurs were
wiped out.


The problem is worldwide, but Florida
can play a significant role in solving it.
For one thing, Florida ranks fifth in the
nation for emissions released into the
atmosphere.
In California, the administration has
made it a goal to put in 1 million solar roofs,
and in New Mexico they are building the
world's largest solar plant.
Florida needs to follow the lead of those
states and become one of the leaders in
conservation. Our representatives in Con-
gress and the U.S. Senate should under-
stand this is not only a bipartisan issue but
a moral issue that we cannot afford to
quibble about.
Our economy, our quality of life and our
children's future are all at stake.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Postal reform is the real answer


Editor:
I don't speak on behalf of the U.S. Postal Service, but I do
have 29 years of experience as a letter carrier. Will a five-day
,mail delivery save gas? Probably not.
In reality, the heavier mail volumes on Monday would
result in either longer hours or additional employees. In either
case, additional vehicles and time in the vehicles would
increase.
The other reality is that Monday wouldn't be the only
affected day. The bulk mail would be rolled over until Tues-
day or Wednesday, again causing longer hours.
A first-class letter mailed on Friday afternoon would be
delivered three days later even if it was just across town. That
would be four days during a holiday week.
The revenue from overnight express mail, a premium ser-
vice, would be cut in half. To maintain overnight service for
the entire week would require carriers to work on Saturday
and Sunday, which again requires vehicles and gas, again
defeating the purpose.
Last year 203 billion letters were delivered to 293 million
Americans. That's 680 million pieces per day.
The United States postage is the most affordable in the
world while delivering 44 percent of the world's mail volume.
The Postal Service is self sufficient and postal rate increases
have been 26 percent below the rate of inflation.
There is another way to control the postage rates besides
the five-day delivery week. In my opinion the better way is
to support postal reform. HR 22, approved in July 2005, and
SB 662, February 2006, are now in committee.
Postal reform isn't the cure-all, but it's a step in the right
direction. And you will be able to have your cake and six
days of mail delivery.

Two more
years of this?

Editor:
Well, Bush is up to his old
tricks again he makes a
surprise visit to Iraq. You
know as well as I do it was
just for political reasons. The,
November elections are
coming up and he has to
get the people back on his
side, so he started with Iraq.
You can be sure there will
be other surprises before
November. Why doesn't he


get down to business with
health care? My daughter
works but she has no health
insurance because she can't
afford it.
Bush doesn't care, all he
cares about is making his
rich friends richer with his
tax cuts, and the poor are
getting poorer. God, we have
two more years with him;
things are bad now and they
will get worse.
Also, someone should tell
him to go see the movie Al
Gore made on global warm-


ing. Maybe it will sink into
his thick head we are in
trouble.
Bush is nothing but a dic-
tator; he wants everything to
go his way. He doesn't listen
to anyone and his buddies,
Cheney and Rumsfield, are
his puppy dogs.

Vets need to
stick together
Editor:
I for one was very curious
and about what happened
at the Memorial Day cere-
monies. It is extremely curi-
ous that the Venice High
School Band showed up on
their own time (school is out)
ready to play for the ceremo-
ny, And then they disap-
peared almost as if by magic.
It's OK that the North Port
High Drum and Bugle Corps
came and did perform very
well. But, I get the feeling
VHS was slighted as they
showed and didn't get to
perform..
There is a Venice Area
Veterans Council that is es-
tablished already; perhaps
we can forget our differences
and pick it up, put it back to-
gether before we embarrass
ourselves even more, and
show that we are worthy of
our service.
We veterans did great
things. World War II Vets,
you're the "Greatest Gener-
ation." You Korean vets, it
may have a forgotten war,
but we 'Nam vets share your
feelings. Kosovo, Bosnia, So-
malia, Gulf War I, Afghan-
istan, Iraqi Freedom.
And I ask one last thing:


You latter-day vets after
Vietnam come on, my
brothers, we need you on
Nov. 11. You deserve it. Come
out, be with us. Freedom is
not free. You paid that price
and you deserve the honor of
being recognized for serving.

services with an honorable
discharge is a hero to me,
and if I can help you in any
way, I would do so. If you
need assistance swimming

Sovereignty
is at stake
Editor:
Since it is reasonable to
expect that people who have
come to our country by
breaking our laws cannot be
trusted to adhere to any
agreement reached as part
of an immigration reform
bill, and since it would be
impossible to deport them
all at once, here then, is a
plan that would work well.
We begin to replace the
illegal guys by simply finding
those unemployed American
citizens who are willing to
do the work that so many of
the illegals are now doing
and export them promptly as
they are replaced.

affordable housing? The real estate market is extremely slow,
there are many more properties for sale than buyers looking.
If all these people need housing, they should start making
offers on the existing properties. Those who really want to
sell will consider those offers. First-time homebuyers
shouldn't expect their first home to be a McMansion, and
sellers should realize that demand drives prices, both up and
down.


Must have bocce! Where
are the bocce gardens? I am so
disappointed. I moved to
Venice and expected to find a
nice neighborhood place that
serves food and drink and you
can watch bocce ball and play


bocce ball. So now I have to
go back to St. Louis, to the hill
area, to Milo's and get my
bocce fix. I really wish some-
body would open a.place in
Venice where we could play
bocce.


Humiliating. I'm calling
about the Memorial Day
ceremony this past Monday.
My son is a member of the
Venice High School band
and he did show up there
Monday to play in the cere-
mony and I cannot believe
that they would cancel a
high school band at the last
minute, send them away,
and bring in a band from
another town. I just happen
to be a member of the
American Legion, as is my
father, my husband and his
father, and I totally did not
appreciate the way these


kids were treated. I think it
was humiliating and it was a
slap in the face to the VHS
band. I did write a letter to
the American Legion letting
them know how I feel.
Unprofessional. Regarding
the May 28 Venice Gondolier
article on unprofessional
about the jails, I'm calling
because my boyfriend was in
jail and he was denied his
medication and they charged
$2.50 a phone call, which
lasts 20 minutes and often is
cut off by a machine, and he
would have to recall me and
I was charged another $2.50.

High with incredible facili-
ties, a long, rich history and a
beautiful campus.
It is an old school, dating
back to the 1800s. A couple of
the early buildings still stand
but many new one, like the
science facility, built with
money from the Lilly Foun-
dation, and the biological sci-
ences building from money
from Olin. They had a new
fitness center, performing
arts center, art center and
more.
My fraternity is the long-
est in continuous operation
for Phi Gams in the country.
The Theta house next door
was their alpha chapter, I
think.
Sigma Delta Chi, now the
Society of Professional Journ-
alists, was founded at De-
Pauw by Eugene Pulliam. I
even had the honor to be a
president of the chapter
while in college, even though
I was not on the journalism
side of the school newspaper
but rather the business side.
It was at the newspaper that
Sue and I met.
Times have changed.
Then, boys could not be in
girls' rooms; now they can be
in their rooms even
stay overnight, alftugh that
is more likely to happen in
the boys' living facilities.
Drinking is allowed in the
living quarters for those 21
and older. My guess is
younger students cheat.
It was wonderful to share
those good times and see
how the school has grown
and prospered.

The Pinebrook Road exten-
sion is open, which is really
nice, albeit 10 years off
schedule.
It is unfortunate that not
one tree was planted. This
may be in part due to the fact
they will someday make this
four lanes, but there must be
a way to have some land-
scaping.
Now that the county won
the award as a Tree City,
maybe they can keep it up
and put some there. Rarely
do highway projects consider
landscaping, and they should.

Hooray for our school
system, which ended up with
all but four schools in the
county 'A"' or "B" schools.
Only two schools in Venice
were not A schools, includ-
ing Garden Elementary,
which has about the longest
string of being an "A" school
of any, and the Island Village
Montessori middle school,
which also got a "B" grade.
That certainly says a lot
about the job our schools
and educators are doing,
though they did not fair quite
as well with the federal No
Child Left Behind standards,
which seem to be a tougher
level to achieve.
These all come at a good
time for Dr. Norris, who is
being evaluated by his board.
As the beautiful mural is
being finished on the side of
the Venice Little Theatre, it is
time to start the next one, on
the back of the Gondolier Sun
printing plant.


On Monday, Colleen
Henry will begin the project,
which should be a great addi-
tion, giving a nice visual his-
tory of the area. Come by

it out maybe even walk
some.

Our fingers are crossed as
the Gondolier Sun editorial
staff gets recognized this
week for its good work. We
hope to set the record for con-
secutive years as the state's
No.-1 weekly paper.

As we begin our hurricane
season, it is interesting to
note that according to the
census bureau 34.6 million
people live in the coastal
areas from North Carolina to
Texas, the most vulnerable
area. There are 24.4 million
more than in 1950.


Hurricanes 'have not dis-
couraged people too much,
as there has been a 487 -per-
cent increase in that area
between 1950 and 2000.

I wonder whether, when a
tropical storm is headed at us,
if the weather man could go
out on a limb and say it is
going to rain rather than that
there is a 90 percent likeli-
hood. Take a chance, espe-
cially when a storm half the
size of the gulf is coming at us.

Although I am excited that
Sarasota County won the
designation as All-America
City, I thought it was not fis-
cally prudent to send 21 rep-
resentatives to California to
present the case. That is
unusual for a county that I
think overall does a great job
(outside of the sheriffs office)
of watching costs.

You should have. felt safe
this week. You may have
noticed police cars from
places like Miramar, Miami,


Bartow and West Palm Beach
- 40 police departments, all
told.
Thanks to the great work
of the Venice Police Depart-
ment and particularly Dan
Whitaker, the annual week-
long Police Explorer conven-
tion was held in Venice. This
included lots of exercises for
the young men and women
simulating police work, get-
ting points in competition so
they could be honored Sat-
urday at the community cen-
ter.
Venice's explorers did not
compete since they were the
hosts and had to act as some
of the "props."

Key seeks crime-prevention cameras


BY GAVIN OFF
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

Most people are familiar
with red-light cameras, the
traffic-regulating devices that
photograph drivers running
red lights.
But how many people have
heard about roundabout
cameras?
Manasota Key's Municipal
Service Taxing Unit is looking
to install a set of cameras near
the island's roundabout at
Gulf Boulevard and Beach
and North Beach roads.
The cameras, however,
would not be used to spy on
motorists still struggling to
navigate the key's circle.
Rather, a set of three cam-
eras, mounted on a pole at
least 10 feet off the ground,
would likely; pper,,dQO .ech, h
approaching roadr-searching-
for illegal or delinquent activ-
ity.
BJ Galberaith, the MSTU
chairwoman, said the cam-
eras could help protect the
stainless steel sculpture of a
conch shell still slated for the
roundabout's center.
"We seriously want some
sort of cameras out there


mostly because we have a
very expensive statue coming
in there," she said.
The sculpture, completed
last year and measuring 4 feet
wide by 14 feet long by 6 feet
high, cost $40,000. The MSTU
paid $20,000, Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice donated $10,000 and
islander Tom Dignam chip-
ped in $5,000 for the sculp-
ture. Other Manasota Key res-
idents paid the balance.
At this time, the shell is sit-
ting in storage. Although it is
not known when the circle
will be complete, when fin-
ished, the roundabout will
sport the shell, decorative
lighting and large, decorative
stones.
Buying and installing the
cameras, weatherproof box
, and pole could cost as much
as $4,2-50. The system- would-
also require a high-speed
Internet connection, which
would cost about $50 a
month.
A deterrent
Stevcn McKinnie, security
consultant with Gulf Coast
Security Plans, said the cam-
eras could see to a distance of


about 80 feet at night and far-
ther during the day. Similar
cameras are used at commer-
cial businesses and con-
dominium developments,
McKinnie said.
The system saves about
two months of video footage
on its hard-drive before the
information is deleted.
It also allows up to 10
authorized people to view the
camera's video from their
homes.
McKinnie said Sarasota
County has installed similar
cameras at Manasota and
Middle beaches. The same
cameras have been watching
Middle Beach for 15 years,
McKinnie said.
"It's been through storms
and everything. They're pretty
sturdy," he said.
They are also a deterrent.
Although the cameras
might not stop all vandals
and burglars, members of the
island's MSTU said they
hoped the cameras would
stop a good number of them.
Members also discussed
adding a fourth camera, or a
camera at a different location,
to watch over Chadwick Park.
The small bayfront park is


home to continual criminal
mischief, from burglaries and
underage drinking to vandal-
ism and drug deals.
Deputy Ed Moose said the
Charlotte County Sheriff's
Office recently began under-
cover stings at the park.
"In the lieutenant's eyes,
they've been such a success
we'll keep doing them,"
Moose said.
Moose added, "Do (cam-
eras) help with deterrent? It's
iffy. When you're high on
crack, there isn't one camera
or light that will stop you."
MSTU committee mem-
bers said if a camera covering
the park was added, they
want the county to pay for it.
Members also have yet to
determine how many cam-
eras would be installed and
where they will be located.
They're also unsure if they
will need county br Florida
Department of Environ-
mental Protection permits
before installing the system.
Galberaith said she hoped
to have the cameras up and
filming by the summer's end.

One of
the
unheralded
health risks that can
H result from heavy alcohol
consumption is bone loss. Normally,
adult bones undergo a replacement
process called "remodeling," whereby cells called
osteoclasts break down sections of old bone and
cells known as osteoblasts create new bone to
replace them. This process is usually balanced so
that young adults replace as much bone as they
lose. Recent research, however, indicates that
excessive consumption of alcohol impedes the
ability of osteoblasts to function properly. As a
result, heavy drinkers may begin to lose bone within
a matter of a few years. Heavy alcohol consumption
4 may also result in a higher risk of fractures and slower
healing rates for broken bones.
We strive to keep the public educated about various
health issues, feeling that education is the best tool a
patient can use to make informed choices.
At TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER, it
is important to us that patients receive "wellness" care
rather than waiting until the "pain of dis-ease"
triggers a visit! We will try to help you understand
your choices about chiropractic and let you make an
informed choice regarding chiropractic health and
chiropractic care. We're located at
1214-C Venice Ave. East. Call us at 412-3800 and
V,-- start feeling better. We offer massage therapy and
have 4 licensed massage therapists on staff.
) Chiropractic works.
P.S. While heavy drinking is often defined as six or
more drinks per day, researchers found that as few as
three drinks of alcohol daily can cause bone loss.

,. Venice A team sees win streak end


CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Sarasota wins

County Cup

After 61 games and 16
days, the Sarasota County
Cup is finally history.
The Sarasota Nationals
won the title Friday night by
defeating the Sarasota Cubs,
6-1.
Venice teams had won the
Cup the previous two years
with Kiwanis turning the trick
in 2004 and Babe's Hardware
doing the deed last year.
All in all, the 10 Venice
Little League Majors teams in
the tournament held their
heads above water with a
combined record of 22-20.
Kiwanis was 6-2 and made
it to the final three. Babe's
was 4-2. The Lawyers and
Sertoma each checked in
at 3-2. A.G. Edwards was
2-2. The Doctors, Dentists,
Venice-Nokomis Rotary and
Nationwide were all 1-2. The
Lions were the only winless
team at 0-2.
Next up is the District All-
Star Tournament, which will
be played at Chuck Reiter.
The Juniors and Seniors wil
play atWellfield.
The teams have been
selected and practice has
started.
Games will start late in the
month for 9-10s and 11-12s
and, early next month .for
Juniors and Seniors, '
The district tournament
field won't be released until a
district meeting on June 25.
Each team will be placed in a
four-team pool, with the top
two advancing to a double-
elimination tournament.

I've been getting a real kick
out of watching the World
Cup soccer. There's so many
good teams and so many
great players. It is truly a dis-
play of the best the sport has
to offer.
I discovered a little trick
that seems to make the
games even more exciting. I
watch the Spanish broadcasts
on Channel 15. The announc-
ers are into it more and much
more entertaining, even
though I can't understand
what they're saying most of
the time.
Actually, you don't need
announcers to figure out
what's going on, anyway. Just
watch the match.
And to the people who say
that soccer is boring, that a
1-0 game over 90 minutes is
dull.
I think 1-0 matches are
even more exciting. They're
more intense. The slightest
mistake or big play can make
a difference between winning
and losing.
Ole, ole.

Venice Senior Softball lost
one of its beloved Wednesday.
C.B. White, one of the Silver
League umpires for many
years, passed away. Senior
softballers thank C.B. for all
his work. He will be sorely
missed.

Sharks hold tryouts
The South County Family
YMCA's training site for the
Sarasota Sharks will be hav-
ing tryouts for the summer
season every Wednesday
from 5:30-6 p.m. as well as

Jose Velez Camp a big hit with local baseball bunch


The seventh annual Velez
Hitting and Fielding Camp for
kids took place this week at
the Venice High Baseball
Complex.
Velez is the Venice High
hitting coach. He is a former
minor league power hitter in
the Texas Rangers organiza-
tion. He went on to coach
baseball at Booker before
heading south to joining
Craig Faulkner's staff at
VHS.
Velez said his four-day
camp was well-received with
more than 60 kids attending.
The camp was scheduled to
run Monday through Thurs-
day but was pushed back to
Wednesday through Saturday
because of rains from Tropical
Storm Alberto.
Several kids had to .skip
Saturday's session because
Little League All-Star practice
has begun.

Real Estate
Thirty five year old Joe
Mercadante stumbled across a
Free Real Estate Investing
Report that has helped him
create enough monthly income
in 12 months to quit his high
paying corporate job.
According to Joe, "I
started investing in properties
using the strategy outlined in
this free report in April of
2004. I have accumulated 20
homes that combined are
paying me $4,363 of cash flow
each and every month. Plus I
have locked in $580,442 of
profit. I plan on quitting my 9
to 5 job next month and will
be able to live off of the
income from my properties!"
Joe was amazed at the
profits that could be obtained
using this simple investing
strategy. He said that he never
wanted to invest in real estate
because he didn't want to
spend his evenings and
weekends fixing up homes.
Joe isn't very handy and he
didn't enjoy installing toilets,
laying tile and painting.
The majority of homes he
invested in were in move in
condition. In a few cases, his
homes were so nice that he
rented his properties before he
even got his keys at the
closing. The approach outlined
doesn't require the financial
risk of having to pay the
mortgage, taxes and insurance
costs for a property during a
rehab project.
Joe said that this approach
eliminated the majority of the
risk and, best of all; he could
invest in his spare time. The
approach seems to be working
because Joe retired from his
$120,000 a year corporate job
at the age of 35.

FREE report Joe used to begin
his real estate investing, call

'Found' money may go to water project


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

More than $3.6 million
could be allocated this week
by the Sarasota County Board
of Commissioners to fund
about 25 percent of the esti-
mated cost for residents of
three Nokomis neighbor-
hoods to hook up to new and
extended water lines.
The money to underwrite
anticipated estimates more in
line with those suggested in
April 2005 was found in pro-
jected revenues from the I1-
cent sales tax passed by coun-


ty voters several years ago.
Residents of Shore Road,
Bay Point and Colonia Lane
neighborhoods would be the
first to benefit from the allo-
cation.
The funds result from the
county's successful search for
ways to hold hook-up costs to
originally estimated levels.
Commissioner Jon Thaxton
directed county staffers last
January to examine the bud-
get and come up with ways to
divert money from other pro-
jects.
Area residents complained
at the time that receipts from


the county's 1-cent sales tax bids to build water lines in
had been used to fund water both communities were
line extensions in the north- about 75 percent higher than
em part of the county, but not the original estimates about
locally. eight months earlier. The

dents learned early last De-
cember that construction


NoKomis, questioned the
department.
"Those costs are probably
the tiniest part of the total,"
he said at the time. "The new


bids are almost double the
original estimates. It doesn't
add up."
Estimates mailed in April
2005 in a survey of 715
Nokomis homeowners sug-
gested that hooking up to the
central water system would
cost between $3,000 and
$4,000. By December, the
total had jumped to a range of
$6,100 to $7,400.
Altogether, about 1,600
homes within the Nokomis
revitalization plan area and
adjacent neighborhoods are
affected.
All are south of Laurel


Road and extend eastward to
Pinebrook Road.
Two weeks later, 160 prop-
erty owners in Laurel received
similar news. Their increase
was going to be from $7,000
to $10,000 per lot.
An earlier effort by the
county to cover the shortfall
discovered $200,000 last
January. The money was
moved within the budget
from Community Develop-
ment Block Grant funds des-
tined for other projects. But,
at the same time, federal
funding for CDB grants was
reduced.


SCAT About may



face elimination


Help for a feathered friend


STAFF REPORT

SCAT About, the curb-to-
curb bus service on the island
of Venice, may be history after
July 31.
In a memo dated June 14,
Sarasota County Transit Plan-
ner Philip A. Lieberman sum-
marizes 10 proposed changes
to Sarasota County Area
Transit bus routes. Most of
the changes involve minor
time changes or schedule
corrections; one' is the an-
nouncement of new Route
20, serving North Port.
But in the middle of the list
of proposed changes is this
entry: Elimination of SCAT
About.
SCAT About has come
close to being terminated
before but was given more
time to develop a rider base.
One driver said it gets about
30 riders a day now; he was
surprised to get the memo
with news of its possible elim-


nation.
The service was targeted at
people who find it difficult to
get to a stop on the island's
regular route, Route 13,
though it is available to any-
one.
Buses are wheelchair-ac-
cessible, and riders can make
reservations a day in advance
to be picked up or dropped
off at home or elsewhere on
the island.
A ride to the Venice Train
Depot connects passengers
to other local routes.
SCAT About operates
Monday through Saturday
from from 7 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
Rides are $1 per trip.
One regular SCAT About
rider called the Gondolier Sun
because she had heard a
rumor about the service's
potential demise.
"Please look into it," she
asked. "A lot of people ride
that bus, and I don't know
what we're going to do."

* SUPPORT

From page 1
incoming chairwoman of the
Texas Association of Mexican-
American Chambers of Com-
merce.
At the heart of her concern
is the fake document indus-
try. It ballooned after 1986,
the last time Congress under-
took a sweeping overhaul of
the nation's immigration
laws.
For the first time, the 1986
law made it unlawful nation-
ally for employers to know-
ingly hire illegal immigrants,
and they had to check various
documents as proof that a job
prospect had legal work
authorization.
"There are huge implica-
tions with this bill," Acosta
said. "And, oh my God! I can't
even imagine the amount of


paperwork there is going to
be."
Acosta walks through a
series of hypothetical situa-
tions involving Social Securi-
ty cards that turn out to be
fake, even after they're veri-
fied with the U.S. Depart-
ment of Homeland Security
and the Social Security
Administration.
"Suppose you have this star
employee and you think he is
OK (here legally)," she said.
"He doesn't speak English
that well but he's getting it
over time and then you find
out that he has no right to
work here, and half the work
force is his cousin."
In a series of what-ifs,
Acosta said that sales could
drop as production shrinks,
and an audit might be per-
formed if information is
shared with the Internal Rev-
enue Service. And what if,


ultimately, it all gets to credit
rating agency Dun & Brad-
street?
"Does it affect my credit
rating and will that hurt my
bonding?" she said. "If you
don't get bonded, you get
nada, zero, in work."
That's why Acosta is now
sending out e-mails to state
Hispanic chamber leaders,
giving them an update on
how elected officials voted,
how the bills establish an
employee verification pro-
gram and how one legaliza-
tion proposal establishes a
new temporary worker pro-
gram in which hires would
receive a newly proposed H-
2C visa.
Both Texas senators, John
Cornyn and Kay Bailey
Hutchison, voted against the
Senate version of the immi-
gration overhaul.
The employee verification


system would essentially
build on an existing program
known as Basic Pilot that is
now voluntary. Since late
1997, Basic Pilot has allowed
businesses to verify a
worker's status using data-
bases from the Department
of Homeland Security and
the Social Security Adminis-
tration.
There are 6,200 employers
participating in Basic Pilot at
25,000 different job sites. But
there are nearly 23 million
small-business employers
alone across the nation.
"This is a pilot program: It
is not something that we have
aggressively promoted in the
business community," said
Shawn Saucier, a spokesman
for the U.S. Citizenship and
Immigration Services, which
runs the program with the
Social Security Administra-
tion.


An electronic employee
verification program would
become mandatory under
both the House and the Sen-
ate versions of the bill. The
House version requires
employers -to participate
within three to six years. The
Senate version requires
employers to participate
within 18 months.
To get the Department of
Homeland Security ready
for the expansion, the
agency has proposed a bud-
get increase of $134.9 mil-
lion for the next fiscal year,
Saucier said.
But there are still many
unanswered questions.
At the U.S. Chamber of
Commerce, Angelo Amador,
director of immigration pol-
icy, is comparing the two
versions of the immigration
bills, looking for ways they
can be improved and har-


monized. For example, the
Senate version has "more
reasonable" tiers of fines,
Amador said.
Another concern is that
the electronic verification
system won't have an accu-
rate database, and that
there won't be a quick and
reliable recourse for the
employer, Amador said.
Latinos get many "false
negatives" with the Social
Security System, in part
because of the Latin Ameri-
can tradition of using two
last names. If those names
are reversed, the Social
Security number can come
back invalid, Amador noted.
"We continue to say that if
there is going to be account-
ability on the business sec-
tor, there should also be
accountability on the part of
the federal sector," Amador
said.

Helping wolves: Reintroduction efforts pay off


LARRY ALLAN
FRESRHIRCOLUAMIST

I grabbed the gray wolf
from behind, securing it by
the scruff of its neck under
each ear, and held on for all I
was worth. The wolf had been
netted, so it wasn't running
away from me, as it actually
wanted to do. A veterinarian
came up behind me and vac-
cinated the wolf for rabies in
its exposed hip. My job was to
keep the veterinarian from
getting bitten. It worked.
Actually, I've been through
a training course in "handling
wolves for veterinary purpos-
es." Sounds pretty exotic,
doesn't it? It really isn't that
mysterious. Wolves living in
proximity to domestic ani-
mals should be vaccinated so
they can't transmit disease to
dogs or livestock. And they
are.
After being checked by the
veterinarian, the wolves were
released. They weren't groggy,
as they would have been if
tranquilized. Their only wish
seemed to be to get away as
quickly as possible. Contrary
to what you might think,
none ever turned to attack, or
even to growl at us. Ie just
i

ran.
The reintroduction, of
wolves into parts of the West
has created controversy, but
the wolves were actually there
first, long before humans set-
tling the area exterminated
them.
Defenders of Wildlife, a
national nonprofit organiza-
tion, pioneered economic
incentives to promote protec-
tion of endangered species on
private lands. The successful
reintroduction of wolves to
Yellowstone National Park,
and, more recently, the rein-
troduction of the Mexican
subspecies of gray wolf into
parts of Arizona and New
Mexico, is due to The Bailey
Wildlife Foundation Wolf
Compensation Trust, experts
agree.
Financed by private
donors, the Trust helps elimi-
nate a major political factor
opposing wolf recovery. It
shifts the economic and
financial burden of wolf
recovery from individual
ranchers, who might lose live-
stock to the newly reintro-
duced wolves, to those mil-
lions of people who support
wolf reintroduction. Judge
William Downes of the U.S.
District Court in Cheyenne,
Wyoming, praised Defenders
for "putting its money Where
its mouth is," as the judge
approved the reintroduction
plan. Since 1987, Defenders
has administered a trust to
reimburse ranchers in the
Northern Rockies for verified
livestock losses caused by
wolves; it was expanded in
1995 to include potential
losses in the Southwest. As
the wolves expanded their

Mexican gray wolf subspecies has also been reintroduced into its former territories in Arizona and New Mexico.


territories, other areas were
added in 1999. The fund now
includes losses to grizzlies, as
well as wolves.
By the way, wolves aren't
considered much of a prob-
lem to ranchers-livestock
losses to wolves are less than
1 percent, according to a gov-
ernment agency. But that sta-
tistic isn't much of a consola-


tion to ranchers who lose
valuable animals this way.
Payments to ranchers are
based on current values, up
to $3,000 per animal.
Livestock included in this
program are cattle and sheep,
horses, mules, goats, llamas,
donkeys, pigs, chickens,
geese,, turkeys and herding
and livestock guarding dogs.


It's expected that the com-
pensation trust will be main-
tained as long as the wolf is
on the endangered species
list in the wolf recovery areas.
If you want to learn more
about this unique and impor-
tant program, or if you want
to contribute to the Wolf
Compensation Trust, look at
defenders.org.


You don't have to grab and
hold gray wolves to help them
survive, but these misunder-
stood and much-maligned

canines do need your under-
standing and your help.

Be water smart: some simple steps for conservation


STAFF REPORT


Did you know that a faucet
that leaks just one drop per
second can waste more than
2,00.0 gallons of water per
year? That a leaking toilet can
waste 200 gallons a day? Or
that an average shower uses
20-30 gallons of water?
Americans use an average
of over 400 million gallons of
water each day; much of that


water is wasted due to care-
lessness.
The International Arid
Lands Consortium (IALC)
offers these simple water sav-
ing tips to conserve our most
valuable ` and vital natural
resource:
Indoors
* Turn faucets off when you
are not using them; for exam-
ple, do not leave the water


running when washing dish-
es by hand or brushing your
teeth.
* Make sure to repair any
leaking faucets, pipes and toi-
lets.
* Defrost frozen food in the
refrigerator or microwave
instead of running hot water
over it.
* Dispose of toxic chemicals
properly; do not pour them
down the drain.


* Install water saving fixtures
such as ultra-low consump-
tion toilets, efficient faucets
and showerheads.
* Do not throw trash into the
toilet as it will result in unnec-
essary and wasteful toilet
flushing; instead, dispose of
trash in the proper contain-
ers.
Take a quick shower rather
than a bath and save an aver-
age of 20 gallons of water.


* Clean vegetables in a sink or
pan partially filled with water
rather than running water
from the tap.
* Re-use the water that veg-
etables are washed in for
watering houseplants or for
cleaning.
* Insulate water pipes; it'll
make your water hotter faster
and avoid the waste that
comes when heating water.
* Instead of waiting for tap


water to get cold enough for
drinking, keep a bottle of
water in the refrigerator.
* Whenever possible, com-
post food scraps or dispose of
them in the garbage rather
than using the garbage dis-
posal, which requires a high
level of water for operation.
* Only run your dishwasher
when it is full to make the

By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. My mother is 91 years old
and lives alone. She wants to
remain in her home and
won't consider moving to an
assistive living facility. We
are concerned because she
can't hear the telephone ring
when we call her and she
cannot hear the doorbell
when we visit. We have
startled her several times
when we have had to enter
the house without her
knowledge. Any suggestions?
A. You are right to be
concerned about your mother's
situation and you will need to
equip her home with some
special devices to ensure her
safety. First, you will need to
install a wireless doorbell with
an amplified ringer. These
devices are inexpensive and
require no wiring. Make sure
she can hear her doorbell from
all areas of the home. Next, she
will need an amplified phone
which can be obtained free of
charge from the state of
Florida. In order to receive a
phone, your mother will have
to be examined by an
audiologist and given a special
form to fill out. The loudness
of the ring can be adjusted and
the loudness of the voices
coming over the phone can also
be adjusted so your mother can
hear the caller clearly. I would
also suggest you check to
insure your mother can hear
her smoke alarm and that it is
loud enough to wake her. Call
the Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. 492-4327 and answer a
few simple questions so they
can evaluate your mother's
situation in more detail and
inform you about the many
devices available to make her
home safer.

SENIOR SCENE


In-laws or outlaws?


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
COLUMNIST


'"A son is a son until he
takes a wife. A daughter is a
daughter for the rest of her
life." Is there any more tenu-
ous a relationship than be-
tween mother-in-law and
daughter-in-law? Is any wom-
an ever good enough for a
woman's son? I dunno! Sure,
there are some. And I guess I
am very fortunate because I
have daughters-in-law who
love and respect me, but my
husband always said it was a
good thing we lived a thou-
sand miles apart. I wonder
what he meant by that?
Perhaps a mother-in-law
wonders if her son's wife will
ever cook his favorite foods
correctly, know that he likes
his eggs over easy but yellow
runny, whites done. And after
six months, will she look at
this precious boy and think he
looks peaked and malnour-
ished? And does a daughter-
in-law feel for the first couple
of years that she needs to
handle his mother with kid


gloves? Is this a woman-to-
woman control thing, a com-
petition? Does a mother think
she is losing her place in her
son's life? Is she more likely to
keep a close relationship with
her daughter than her son? I,
,dunno!
My mother-in-law was a
very nice lady but she must
have thought me pretty unso-
phisticated, I guess. Several
times my in-laws came to
visit us from Indiana to
Washington, D.C. When we
would go for walks with my
children, I might wave to a
neighbor and say, "Hi." One
doesn't say hi, she admon-
ished me, explaining that a
lady said "good morning."
And being naive, I was in the
habit of going barefoot in the
house and would kick off my
shoes when entering. Again
she informed me that a lady
wears bedroom slippers
indoors. I wanted to say, "La
dee dah," but of course I did-
n't.
I forgave her because she
made the most delicious
angel food cake that you have
ever tasted. Did you ever have
one of those angel food cakes
where you would beat the egg
whites with a wire whisk on a
platter and gently fold in the
cake flour, cream of tartar and
almond extract? I don't know
what else went in it but
today's angel food cakes are of
no comparison.
But back to relationships.
You know when you get mar-


ried it is kind of like being
dealt a poker hand ... you
don't know what you're get-
ting. That's why the minister
says for better or for worse. At
that time, did you know his
Uncle George had a drinking
problem or does he know that
your cousin Sue belongs to a
nudist colony? Until my
friend told me, I had never
heard the expression "I love
you, warts and all." You may
not know it at the time but
marriage is a package deal.
If you're a bridegroom to
be, before the wedding, did
she tell you she had 35
cousins, eight aunts and sev-
en uncles and that you would
be expected to visit them on a
.regular basis? It's always a
shock to find out things about
his or her family that you
would not consider the norm.
Half of the people I asked said
their in-laws were fine, half
not. It is a good thing we don't
get enmeshed in genealogy at
an early age or we would pos-
sibly cancel a lot of unions.
When I hear stories of
mixed up, crazy family rela-
tionships, I am always amaz-
ed at the far-fetched situa-
tions. And a mother-in-law, in
fact all in-laws, can enrich
one's life without measure.
My two daughters-in-law are
of that variety.
Do we have a tendency not
to see our own family faults
and think, "Gee, I wouldn't

Ergonomic gardening can help seniors


Dear Savvy Senior,
I saw you on the "Today"

gardening tips and tools for
seniors who have arthritis and
other physical limitations. Can
you write a column on this topic

more than 28 million seniors.

Ergonomic tools: There's

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is part

The North won the war -
again.
It was raining on Rich-
mond, the former capital of
the Confederacy, as we de-
trained to board our bus for a
day in Colonial Williamsburg.
Or maybe the gods were
crying for us as our too-short
tour aboard the vintage train
was coming to an end.
The forecast dropped on
our berths the preceding
night said there was a chance
of rain and the high was
expected to be 39 with a low
of 26. Layering of clothes was
in order and the chances of
removing even one layer
seemed slim.
As we had the previous
day, we ate breakfast early so
that we could be on board the
bus by 8 a.m. for our trip to
Williamsburg, a place I had
not visited in at least 15 years,
never when it was this cold.
The historic site was differ-
ent than what I remembered.

were clustered together out-
sidde the historic village. That

gardens. Yet every cloud has a
silver lining. It was v'ery' easy
to see the layout of the garden
beds and their raised edges.
Leaving the palace, I finally
realized that something was
different frm my earlier trips.
There were few if any stores
in which to escape te rain.
Perhaps they seemed to be
closer together years ago on a
sunny day but this day, it
seemed as though I would be
frozen and soaked before I
came to another building
-- open for tourists. Plodding
back the way I cam to the
church, I turned right and
headed for the mercantile
center, figuring I would shop
awhile and possibly even dry
off before meeting up with
the rest of the group for lunch
at the King's Arms Tavern.
At Merchant's Square, I
found a wonderful book
shop and bought some

The James River runs through the heart of Richmond. This section shows the remains of some
old railroad overpasses.


Also there is a coffee shop, ice
cream store, Peanut Shop,
clothing sotres, Silver Vault,
Williamsburg at Home shops,
Christmas Shop and more.
Except for Talbot's, Chico's,
Birkenstock and the ice cream
store, most of the shops were
individually owned shops
with unique items.
It was the second-to-last
day of my wonderful train trip
and there I was in Williams-
burg, cold and wet. The
angels were crying. Shopped
out and heeding to be at the
King's Arms in 15 minutes, I
headed back out into the
drizzily day, walking along
the Duke of Gloucester Street
as fast as I could. The harness-'
maker's shop was opewn but
filled and the plant nursery
was also open but since it was
mostly an out of doors estab-
lishment, I plunged on, stop-
ping briefly out of the rain at
Tarpley's store. I was almost at
the tavern at that point.
Not wanting to be late, I
dashed the last few steps to
the inn,' discovering I was 10
minutes early. My watch was
fast or the tavern's clock was
slow. In any event, I was cold
and wet so I got myself a table
and ordered a hot cup of tea
while I waited for the rest of
my train friends to arrive. Two
couples from the train had the
same idea. I spotted them just
across the room, sipping their
own cups of tea.
A bit warmer, I paused by
the roaring fireplace for a
minute before joining the
train group in another dining
room at the inn. There we
dined on fried chicken, beans
and other food, which might
have been served in Colonial
Williamsburg. After lunch,
several of us opted to return
to the bus raher than to keep
walking in the rain. That gave


me a chance to look over my
notes and actually to catch
a little nap before the, bus
headed back to the train for
our last night on board.
It was good to see Wil-
liamsburg again but, having
been there so often, and with
only hours left aboard the
historic train, I was anxious
to be back on board and to
take a nice hot shower before
dinner. ;
Like all the excursions
from the train, the tour of
WIlliamsburg was included
in the Antebellum South
tour price. If a person goes
to Williamsburg on his own,
tickets are $29 per person for
adults who are guests at the
Colonial Williamsburg Ho-
tel, $34 per person for a one-
day pass to most historic
sites (it does not include the
Governor's Palace nor
Bassett Hall) and an orienta-
tion walk, $48 per person for
a Key to the City Pass, $59
per person for a one-year
pass and $72 per person for
an annual pass, with free
tickets to non-holiday
evening performances. In
gqod weather, carriage and
wagon rides are available at
an extra charge.

Please don't send me a


greeting card. I can't handle it.


COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER


My grandmother, whom I
loye more than anything, is a
greeting card fanatic. I have
gotten a greeting card from
her for every American holi-
day. Christmas, Easter,
Thanksgiving, Halloween,
Valentine's Day, and even St.
Patrick's Day. While I love get-
ting cards from my grandma,
I would much rather talk to
her on the phone. The card
itself never quite says what I
could hear from her on the
phone or in person.
But the main problem I
have with the greeting cards
my grandma sends me is that
I simply cannot throw them
away. I look at the cute and
fuzzy bunnies or kittens oil
the front, and the thought of
them sitting in the trash
mixed in with remains of last
night's KFC breaks me apart.
Plus, the very thought of
something that my grand-
mother lovingly took the time
to send me in the same place
as a used Kleenex makes my
heart wrench.
So, like a complete neurot-
ic, I keep my greeting cards.
Now, this wouldn't be such a
problem except as I men-
tioned, my grandma sends
me a greeting card for every
American holiday, plus my
birthday. In addition, my
grandma and grandpa insist
on sending me birthday cards
individually. So, I get at least
12 greeting cards a year from

that I cannot throw away. The
problem here lies in the egre-
gious waste of space taken up
by the greeting cards I cannot
be rid of and that serve
absolutely no purpose.
A greeting card is not
something that you take out
like a photo album. It is some-
thing that you look at once,
ooh and ahhh over, and then
it goes away, purpose served.
A greeting card is not reusable
either, like a gift bag, which I
also cannot seem to throw
away.
Gift bags are also some-
thing that takes up space next
to my greeting card cemetery.
However, sometimes an occa-

spent 'on the cards and
postage, as well as the gas to
purchase said card and
postage, I wonder whether
with that money my grandma
could have just bought a
plane ticket and come to see
me.
So the question then
becomes: Why do people
send these things? Can't they
just call on the phone and
give a quick shout out: "Hey,
Happy St. Patrick's Day!"
I must be brutally honest,
while I do not like to send
greeting cards, I have been
known to send the occasional
greeting card or two, even
though the veryf fought of
someone-else having a verita-
ble storehouse of used greet-
ing cards somewhere that I
sent them makes me roll my
eyes in wonder.
Now, there are two distinct
reasons behind this: I am
cheap and forgetful. Instead
of buying a gift for someone, I
will often buy a card that says,
"Hey, I remembered your
birthday, anniversary, en-
gagement, wedding, etc. You
can't accuse me of forgetting!"
And, I have been known to
run in to Walgreens moments


to zero hour to buy a card to
attend a bridal shower, stick
five bucks inside, and, feeling
as though I have satisfied my
gift requirement, I head for
the food.
This horrible tendency I
have to use greeting cards as a
copout for real gifts gives me
pause to my grandmother's
own greeting card tendencies.
Is she sending cards only to
avoid me?
I did some research on the
greeting card to find out when
this conspiracy began. About
200 years ago, greeting cards
were an insanely popular way
to send a hello to someone
you care about. They were
"'usually very intricate works of
art as well. Their popularity
makes sense because at the
time there weren't such things
as e-mail or cell phones with
unlimited nights and week-
ends.
However, at the British
Museum in London, the first
greeting card is on display,
which is dated back to the
1400s and was a Valentine's
Day card.
I guess that person could-
n't throw away his or her
greeting cards either.

Thank you, Happy Father's

Help the victims of our 'throw-away society'


BY BARBARA MCCARTEN
AND GARY LANDES
GUEST WRITERS

Some stories need to be
told many times to remind us
of an important message. The
starfish story is one of them.
Loren Eiseley, the writer of
the story, was walking on the
beach one day enjoying the
beauty surrounding him. He
noticed a young man tossing
a starfish back into the sea.
The writer asked him why in
the world he was doing that.
The young man said that if
the starfishes are still on the
beach when the tide goes out
and the sun rises higher in the
sky, they will die. "That's ridi-
culous, there are millions of
starfish," said the writer. "You
can't really believe that what
you are doing can make a dif-
ference." As the young man
tossed another starfish into
the sea, he said, "It makes a
difference to this one!"
Perhaps you think you can
make little or no difference in
the world by what you give or
do. But you can, and you do!
Each one of St. Francis
Animal Rescue volunteers
makes a big difference in the
lives of our cats and kittens.
We live in a "throw-away
society" and see in the news
the tragedy of new babies
found in dumpsters or in
trash cans. What we don't see
in the news is the enormous


number of cats who are
thrown away each year when
the snowbirds return north
after spending the winter in
Florida, or when families
move and just leave their pets
behind. Another problem
involves cats left behind after
their owners die. Relatives
come in to clean out the
house, and included in the
clean out are the family pets
who are just turned loose to
defend for themselves.
Precious'Cargo'
The volunteers at St. Fran-
cis see so many cats who have
been abandoned, sometimes
left in a box at the front door
of the shelter, or, as happened
recently, when a lovely cat
was thrown out of a car win-
dow on the highway. A very
good friend of St. Francis
Animal Rescue, Rosemary,
was driving behind the car
but could not get the license
number because she was so
busy keeping an eye on the
cat to make sure she didn't hit
it, and to make sure she could
stop and get it into her car.
Rosemary brought the cat to
St. Francis, where volunteers
nursed him back to health
and "Cargo" was finally adop-,
ted by a loving family.
Many cats come to/,ur
shelter after living for.nany
years with their f!miily, and
then the decision is made
that they doh't want them


anymore. In 2005, Kimba and
Grie were left when their
"Mom and Dad" decided to
move back north. They were
taken to Pet Smart by a St.
Francis volunteer apd adopt-
ed together, but Kimba could
not tolerate living in a,home
with three other cats. When
this placement didn't work,
she came to Angie's Cattery,
where some of our senior cats
live. This also didn't work
because of the number of
cats, which upset Kimba. One
of the volunteers at Angie's
took Kimba to foster after she
got very ill from the stress of
living in this situation. This
volunteer already has two
cats who hate each other and
now has three. Since this is
not an ideal placement we are
looking for a permanent
home for Kimba, a 10-year-
old gray Himalayan with
beautiful green eyes. Kimba
needs a home where there are
no other animals. Please call
me at 497-6755 to find out
about "Special Cats For
Special People."
St. Francis Animal Rescue
would dearly love to hear
from you if you have a few
/hours to give each week to
help us in our mission to help
stray, homeless, unwanted,
abused and abandoned ani-
mals in our community.
Please stop in at 1925
South Tamiami Trail or call
492-6200.

best use of water, energy and
detergent.
* Cut down on the amount of
rinsing you do before loading
the dishwasher.
* Most modern dishwashers
do an excellent job of clean-
ing dishes, pots and pans.
* Wait until you have a full
load of laundry before run-
ning the machine to save both
- water and energy. If you can't
wait for a full load, use the
right water level to match the
size of the load.
* When washing clothes by
hand, the water should not be
left running. Fill a laundry tub
with water, and re-use wash
and rinse water as much as
possible. Likewise with the
dishes.
Outdoors
* Water your lawn early in the
morning or at night to avoid
excess evaporation. Similarly,
do not water your lIwn on
windy days as it can also help
3 to avoid excess evaporation.
* Don't follow a fixed Watering
schedule. Water when the
grass or plants show signs of
needing it. Over watering is
bad for plants and lawns. It
promotes shallow root
growth, making your lawn
less hardy. To determine if
. your lawn needs to be
watered, simply walk across
;, the grass. If you leave foot-
prints, it's time to water.
* Cover swimming pools to
minimize the loss of water
due to evaporation. Also
install a more efficient water
saving filter.
iUse a broom rather than a
I hose to clean sidewalks or dri-
veways.
* Install efficient irrigation
' devices that can be adjusted
according to seasonal irriga-
tion needs. Install moisture
sensors in each irrigation
zone (sunny, shady, etc.) to
better determine irrigation
needs.
Do not leave sprinklers or
hoses on unattended; it can
result in leaks and over water-
ing.
'* Maintain a lawn height of 2-
I' 1l' r'3iches to helptprotect
the roots from heat stress and
reduce the loss of moisture to
evaporation. Allowing the
' grass to grow slightly taller
reduces water loss by provid-
0 ing more ground shade for
the roots and by promoting
? water retention in the soil.
5* Watering in several short
sessions rather than one long
ki one allows the lawn to better
absorb water and helps
- reduce the risk of over water-
. ing.
Check sprinkler system
valves periodically for leaks
and keep the heads in good
repair.
Make sure your sprinkler is
placed so it waters only the
'lawn, not the pavement.
Avoid sprinklers that spray a
fine mist, which increases
evaporation.
Wash your car with a bucket
of soapy water and use a noz-
zle to stop the flow of water
from the hose between rins-
ing.
Consider washing your car
on the lawn, if possible, to
reduce runoff.
Consider Xeriscape land-
scaping, which takes into
consideration how the yard
will be used and how it can
provide the greatest benefit
with the least amount of
maintenance. This includes
growing plants that are
indigenous to the area and
appropriate maintenance to
reduce water use.

Submit your artwork for Charlotte Harbor NEP 2007 calendar


STAFF REPORT

We live in a beautiful place
in the world, and many of you
have captured this beauty in
your artwork as is evidenced
by the 2005 apd 2006 calen-
dars produced by Charlotte
Harbor National Estuary
Program. The program is now
developing its 2007 calendar.
You can have your artwork
published in the 2007 calen-
dar! CHNEP encourages you
to submit up to three images
that capture the beauty of the
natural environment found
within the CHNEP study area
for the 2007 calendar. The
images could have been cap-
tured by the young or old,
amateur or professional,
today or 50 years ago and in
any medium (photography,
oil, illustration, etc). The goal
is that the 2007 calendar will
depict the diversity of the nat-
ural environment found
within this geographic area,
which may include rivers,
streams, estuaries, native
plants and native wildlife.
You .may submit up to
three digitized entries by 5
p.m. Thursday, June 22. There
is no entry fee. Rules include:
The images captured
must be within the watershed
of concern to .the Charlotte
Harbor NEP, which includes
all or portions of Charlotte,


DeSoto, Hardee, Highlands,
Lee, Manatee, Polk and Sara-
sota counties. Maps of the
program watershed are avail-
able.
Each person may submit
no more than three images.
Images that conform to a 4 by
3 ratio (12 by 9) are preferred
as they conform to the antici-
pated print size of the calen-
dar.
Images must be received
as digital files saved on a CD.
For help digitizing your
image, contact The Set-Up in
Cape Coral (239/542-4142 or
info@thesetup.com) or a local
commercial printer. Scan-
ning costs are estimated to be
$50 an image. Please note
that only images with resolu-
tions of 300 dpi or greater for
a 12 by 9 inch image can be
considered for printing on a
12 by 9 inch feature page.
Images with lower resolutions
may only be printed smaller
and placed within the dates
* of the calendar.
Each entry must be
accompanied by an entry
form that serves as a release
for Charlotte Harbor NEP to
use the entries in items such
as the 2007 calendar, the
newsletter "Harbor Hap-
penings" and on the program
Web site. If images include
people who are recognizable,
