Sarasota County: A Community For a Lifetime


BY MARY APOSTOLU
STAFF WRITER

With Sarasota County having
been named 'A Community For a
Lifetime," it's now up to the
Committee, on Senior Living and
other community organizations to
assess current community stan-
dards and address local aging con-
cerns. .
The Sarasota County Commis-
sion approved the naming resolu-
tion at its May 24 meeting. It will
require Sarasota County and the


state of Florida Department of Elder
Affairs to work together to improve
the lives of all citizens, so they can
prepare for and enjoy aging in place
throughout their lives.
On a local level, the "lifetime
community" designation is'intend-
ed to encourage governments to
review whether they adequately
serve the county's older residents
through elder-friendly policies and
procedures.
The median age of county resi-
dents is currently 50.4 years, with
those 65 and older accounting for


32.6 percent of the population.
Venice's median age is 68. .
The committee's goal is to assess
and modify the city infrastructure
and programs so that elders can be
independent, and remain in their
homes and communities for as long
as possible.
Prisoners
One way is "visitability." If there is
an injury or illness that requires a
resident to use a walker or wheel-
chair, many homes are not equip-
ped for that, relegating the person to


be a prisoner in his or her own
home.
Committee member Don Ottin-
ger explained a movement to re-
quire new homes have three basic
features built in during construc-
tion: a zero-step outside entrance, a
bedroom and full bath on the main
floor and 32-inch doorways
throughout.
"This would only add approxi-
mately $1,500 to the purchase price,
or roughly.1 percent," he said.

County sees housing law too early


Sarasota County commissioners table a resolu-
tion on how to encourage affordable housing
ordinance until they figure out what kind of


housing they mean.
BYJOHN HAUGHEY,
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County commis-
sioners tabled a resolution
Wednesday endorsing,
among other things, expedit-
ed permitting for affordable
housing projects because an
enabling ordinance has not
been adopted yet.
In other words, abbreviat-
ing a permit process is one
thing, compressing legislative
evolution is another thing
altogether.
Momentum for adopting
the resolution was stymied by.
uncertainties regarding how
benefits would be applied to
qualified projects and one
glaring fact.

tie a resolution to an ordi-
nance that is not yet in place,"
said Paul Radauskas, a county
building official.
County Attorney Steven
DeMarsh said commissioners
were placing the proverbial
cart before the horse by
debating the specifics of an
accelerated permitting pro-
gram "before you have fig-
ured out all the details of the
program."
Ironically, during Tuesday's
meeting in North Port, com-
missioners expressed frustra-
tion about the slow-paced
intricacies of piecing together
an affordable housing ordi-
nance.
"The board can discuss
this thing forever and ever,"
Commissioner Shannon

Staub said. "We need to get
this thing moving so we can
get some comments from all
the groups who have been
working on it for two years."

Tuesday, commissioners
affirmed their goal to offer a
range of incentives to build-
ers as part of the county's
affordable housing program.
County Community Hous-
ing Manager Wendy Thomas
praised commissioners for
being "really engaged" in
assembling a "tool box" of
regulatory devices for afford-
able housing programs.
Thomas noted commis-
sioners have made moderate-
ly priced housing a compo-
nent of the county's compre-
hensive plan, and have dedi-
cated revenues from the sale
of tax-defaulted lots in North
Port to the county's commu-

Disaster



recovery




plan



OK'd

BY JOHN HAUGHEY
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County commissioners
agreed Wednesday to finance a
study that will identify priorities and
policies necessary to coordinate the
county's recovery from a major hur-
ricane4
The nascent Post Disaster Re-
development Plan could cost more
than $1 million and take a year to
assemble.
The plan will not address emer-
gency response issues or the imme-
diate aftermath of a catastrophe, but
will serve as a "road map" in guiding
long-term recovery, County Coastal
Resource Manager Laird Wreford
said.
Making "proactive" decisions
now rather than "reactive" accom-
modations in the wake of a disaster
will pay dividends, he said.
"Otherwise, you are flying by the
seat of your pants in an emergency
situation," Wreford said.
Wise investment
The initial elements of the plan
will be an extensive canvass of resi-
dents and community groups to
determine prerogatives, and then
hiring a "technical .facilitator" to
help synthesize those priorities into
recovery policies, he said.
Considering how p6st-hurricane
recoveries have unraveled else-
where over the last two years,
Wreford said such a plan would be a
wise investment.
He cited many examples of how
governments without a long-term
recovery guide made decisions they
now regret.
For instance, Wreford said, Wal-
ton County issued 250 emergency
permits for seawalls last July after
Hurricane Dennis struck the Pan-
handle, hardening much of the
shoreline and accelerating beach
erosion.
Wreford could have cited another

County to promote


access, protect habitat


Sarasota County wants to expand recreational
uses on 55,000 acres of natural lands.
I


BY JOHN HAUGHEY
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County ;has a
well-developed system of
natural lands ranging from
urban parks to beaches to
wildlife conservation areas.
linked by trails, greenways
and "blueways."
But what good is a public
path through a public forest if
the public doesn't know
about it?
"For some reason, we are
not connecting with the gen-
eral public," Sarasota County
Commission Chair David
Mills said. "My concern is
connectivity to the public."


The county manages
about 55,000 acres of natural
lands 90,000, counting
state-owned
areas ac-
cessible to the
public for a .
variety of rec-
reational pur-
suits.
Of those
40-plus areas,
about 15 are Mills
in South Mills
County, rang-
ing from Manasota Beach to
Jelks Preserve to the nearby
24,565-acre Carlton Reserve
north of North Port.
The Parks & Recreation,


and Natural Resources de-
partments Wednesday pre-
sented commissioners with a
conceptual plan for public
access to the 50-plus natural
areas in Sarasota County.
Mills said the plan should
emphasize what areas are
available, where they are and
what activities are permitted
on them.
He noted the integrated
railroad trail that spans the
county "is very visible," but
many other trails, parks and
natural areas are not well-
known to the public.
New era
Providing that information
is, indeed, part of the plan,
said Robert Patten, executive
director of the county's En-
vironmental Services Depart-


ment.
Patten said there are more
publicly accessible natural
areas in the county than
many residents realize.
He said the conceptual
plan will not only stress
access, but define what activ-
ities are permitted where.
Patten said "a new era" in
park and natural resource
development promotes mul-
tiple uses in some areas while
limiting permissible activities
in other places.
.Parks and natural areas
must provide passive and
active recreational opportu-
nities for a variety of users,
integrating traditional uses
such as hiking and canoeing
with those suitable for non-
ambulatory and senior pa-
trons, he said.


Brie Willett, the county's
public-use coordinator, said
the key is determining what
activities are acceptable at
specific sites. Horseback rid-
ing and camping are accept-
able in some areas, she said,
not so in others.
More environmentally
sensitive areas will promote
"access in such a way that
doesn't impact habitat," she
said.
Willett said the county will
stage a series of "community
discussions" in August and
September to gather input for
the public-access conceptual
plan, which will be submitted
to commissioners in the fall.
The adopted plan will
serve as a guideline in en-
hancing public use of existing
areas, as well as in developing


several county-managed
areas to meet suggested
needs.
In the next three years, the
county plans to expand
access to six natural areas,
including sprawling Deer
Prairie Creek along the east
bank of the Myakka River
between U.S. 41 and Inter-
state 75 west of North Port by
fall 2008.
The county is negotiating
agreements with four archi-
tectural firms and three con- "
struction contractors to de-
sign and build amenities call- -
ed for in the public-access
plan.

County commission agrees to sign ordinance review,


BY JOHN HAUGHEY
STAFF WRITER


Taxes and traffic are
among the headaches South-
west Florida governments
grapple with every day.
-But mention "sign ordi-
nance" and elected represen-
tatives and administrators
will reach for the industrial-
strength painkiller reserved
for the most contentious of
topics.
Few issues spark more
cantankerous carping than
sign regulations, which often
require mind-numbing com-
pilations of exacting detail to
encode.
' Tuesday, Sarasota County
commissioners voluntarily
agreed to inflict a sign ordi-


nance review upon them-
selves after conceding recent-
ly revamped regulations are
producing unforeseen eye-
sores.
"I think we were not strict
enough," Commissioner Nora
Patterson said. "I'd be willing
to endure the agony to
address it."
Patterson was responding
to Commissioner Shannon
Staub's complaints regarding
the proliferation of electronic
display signs along area road-
ways or, as she called them,
"Changeable word signs. I
don't know what they are
called neon."
Staub said the signs, which
often blink colorful and
bright messages, are distract-
ing to drivers and are ram-


shackle ugly.
"I don't think that was our
intent" to encourage the pro-
fusion of such advertising
mediums, she said.
"Some of what we are see-
ing is not what we want,"
Commissioner Paul Mercier
said.
Unwarranted
While regulating electronic
signs could require a policy
change, Staub said eliminat-
ing unsightly placard signs in
public rights of way will re-
quire a revision of enforce-
ment tactics.
Staub said .there are not
enough code enforcement
officers to remedy the prob-
lem, and suggested the coun-
ty enlist "a small group of vol-


unteers warranted to remove
them."
"Warranted" is a limited
form of deputization, enabl-
ing residents to serve in an
official capacity.
Staub offered to spearhead
the campaign.
"I want to get warranted,"
she said. "I'd take them out
myself but I'm not warrant-

Removing them is one
thing;. punishing the perpe-
trators is another.
After all, as Mercier said,
few offenders will pay a fine
or confiscation penalty for
signs that cost relatively little
to produce.
He noted he recently saw a
sign, planted along a road, that
advertised "100 signs for $29."


Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton said there's also virtually
no way to prove liability in
court.
Businesses or individuals
can claim they were the
"unfortunate benefactors" of
someone putting their signs
in the rights of way, he said.


Of course, as September's
primaries approach, it's al-
most certain that many can-
didates including some in-
cumbents will be the "un-
fortunate benefactors" of
roadside sign campaigning. ,
It's expected the review will
take place in the fall.

/School board likely to address fees issue next year


BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
PELICAN PRESS

The longstanding lack of
uniformity for certain school
fees is likely to be addressed
before the 2006-07 school
year ends in Sarasota Coun-
ty, based on recent com-
ments by school board
members.
"I'm sure there will be fur-
ther discussion next year,"
Associate Superintendent
Lori White said in a tele-
phone interview.
During the school board's
May 16 meeting, the agenda
called for the members to
vote on fees
for the ele-
mentary, mid-
dle and high
schools for
the upcom-
ing school
year. The
board already
had set a new
policy that no Kleinlein
school could
charge a fee for materials
related to academic courses.
However, board member
Kathy Kleinlein said she felt


that the district should not
have any variation in other
fees, such as those for parking
at high schools or renting
lockers.
The numbers
According to the schedules
district officials provided the
Pelican Press, parking fees
range from $10 at North Port
High School to $35 at Sara-
sota High. Booker, North Port
and Venice high schools all
charge $5 for lockers, but Pine
View charges $6; Sarasota
High, $7; and Riveryiew, $10.
Some elementary schools
charge fees for registration.
Cranberry and Lamarque, for
example, have a $5 book-
donation fee, while Engle-
wood, Garden, Phillippi
Shores and Venice elemen-
tary schools have a $10
"optional" donation.
Fees for morning and
afternoon child care also vary
from school to school. At Alta
Vista Elementary, for exam-
ple, parents pay a $25 family
registration fee and $6.50 per
day for the first child, $5.50
for the second and $4.50 for
the third in child care after


the school day ends. Bay
Haven Elementary charges a
$20 registration fee and $5,
$3 and $2 per day for the
first, second and third child,
respectively.
Fees, Kleinlein said during
the May 16 meeting, "should
not be a school-to-school
decision."
The board
needed to
have a uni-
form policy .
on atten-
dance, as
schools have : "
varying stip-
ulations for
students Benson
while com-
plying with
the district's guidelines, she
said.
"I don't think what we're
doing here is the final thing,"
said board member John
Lewis, adding he wouldn't
want to keep parents waiting
to know about the fees for the
next school year while the
board debated the issue.
"If we're going to start
looking at making sure all
schools have the same kinds


of prices on these things,"
Lewis said, "do we allow the
district to make these kinds
of decisions or should ad-
ministration and the schools
still have input?"
He added, "I don't believe
that one size fits all."
Exorbitant
Vice Chair Frank Kovach
agreed with Kleinlein.
"I would, at some time,
like to know what those
registration donations add
up to," he said.
Further, he questioned Bay
Haven Elementary's charge of
$1 per minute if a parent
,picks up a child later than 6
p.m.
"I think that's pretty ex-
orbitant," Kovach added. "If
something happens and a
parent's an hour late ... ."
Regarding the parking
fees, he said, "It's not like the,
schools are paying to have
the parking lots repaved."
Kleinlein said she felt that
there were some things for
which the board needed to set
policy. She added, "I really
don't want to workshop this
again."


Chair Carol Todd said her
concern was "fees and afford-
ability." She asked whether
the board members wanted
to table the votes on the fees
and discuss them further,
adding that a uniform atten-
dance policy "is something I
certainly would like to see in
the district."
Kovach said a workshop
on the fees was unnecessary,
as Superintendent Gary
Norris knew the board's feel-
ings on the issue. He suggest-
ed tabling the matter.
However, board member
Laura Benson pointed out
that if the board approved
the fees that

some parents
would get the
information
with their
children's last
; report cards
for the school
Year. To move
Todd the matter
forward, she
said, she was willing to ap-
prove the fees.
"I don't want another long
workshop on this," Benson
added.
"I don't want to vote for


something that's all over the
board," Kleinlein said. "It's
not just; it's not fair."
OK'd, for now
Ultimately, the fees were
approved, with Kleinlein and
Kovach voting against the
high school and elementary
fees. Kovach
did vote for
the middle
school fees,
which do not
vary from
school to
school, while
Kleinlein
voted no.
White told Norris
the Pelican,
"I think there are multiple
issues" regarding the fees, as
some high schools, for exam-
ple, offer lower fees as incen-
tives for missing few days and
getting high grades.
As for the attendance
issue, she said, "We're act-
ually doing some data anal-
ysis and forming a group
to really take a look at atten-
dance practices at our
schools."
That group probably
would begin its work in the
fall, she added.


Sertoma looking for last few fireworks dollars


STAFF REPORT


With the Fourth of July less
than two weeks away, the
Sertoma Club of Venice will
be out again this weekend to
finish amassing its $10,000
donation.
C.J. Fishman, who chairs
the fundraising drive, said the
rain during last weekend's arts
and crafts fair was a small set-


back in collections, which
have been going well.
"We will raise the money,"
he said.
Each year for the past half
a decade or so the club has
started collecting donations
on Memorial Day, adding
what it raises to the $15,000
the city provides for the an-
nual fireworks display on the
Fourth of July.

Alberto damaged area sea turtle nests


STAFF REPORT


Nests laid by loggerhead
and other sea turtles so far
this year were affected by
Tropical Storm Alberto. Some
nests were washed away and
lost; others were washed over
with high surf, but may still be
able to hatch.
Many of the Mote Marine
Laboratory-monitored nests
also lost the stakes marking
them. Nests are marked so
volunteers can monitor their
progress throughout the sea-
son.
Even though some of the
marking stakes may be lost,
it's likely that many of those
nests will still hatch. GPS
coordinates captured for
each nest will allow volun-
teers to continue to monitor
the general area of the nest for
future hatches.

ALBERTO'S IMPACT
The following chart gives the number of nests, number of affected nests (either washed completely
away or washed over but still may hatch) and percentage affected as of June 15:

along Florida beaches runs
through Oct. 31. Here are
some dos and don't to re-
member to help clear the way
for nesting turtles:
Do:
If you encounter a nest-
ing turtle, remain quiet and
observe from a distance.
Shield or turn off outdoor
lights that are visible on the
beach from May through
October.
Close drapes after dark
and put beach furniture far


back from the water.
Fill in holes that may
entrap hatchlings on their
way to the water.
Place trash in its proper
place.
Do not:
,.* Approach nesting turtles
or hatchlings, make noise or
shine lights at turtles.
Use flashlights or fishing
lamps on the beach.
Encourage a turtle to move
while nesting or pick up hatch-
lings that have emerged.


Use fireworks on the
beach.
Sea turtles are protected
under federal law, and any
harassment or interference
with a sea turtle, living or
dead, is subject to penalty.
If you witness anyone dis-
turbing a turtle or find an
injured or disoriented hatch-
ling or adult, notify the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission at
(888) 404-FWCC (3922); the

PLAN from Page 1 A
example closer to home -
Charlotte County.
When Hurricane Charley
pounded that area in August
2004, a proposed zoning over-
lay district along a 9-mile
stretch of U.S. 41 had been
idling before commissioners
for months.
Charley wreaked wide-
spread havoc along much of
Charlotte County's U.S. 41
corridor, prompting a mas-
sive reconstruction effort.
Commissioners adopted
the overlay district in
November 2004, but had they
done so sooner, businesses
would have been required to
meet elevated standards.
That delay is frequently
cited by Charlotte County
commissioners as a lost
opportunity to reap benefits
from Charley.
Mixed feelings
Identifying and adopting
these types of regulatory
mechanisms now could help
ensure Sarasota County com-
missioners aren't repeating
the same regret later.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said she views the
prospect of creating a post-
disaster plan with "mixed
feelings" because little can be
done now to reduce damage
in areas where, inevitably, the
most devastation will occur
the barrier islands and
coastal areas.
Adopting this plan "would
be hypocritical as we approve
(homes) to be built on the
barrier islands," she said.
Of course, landowners
have vested rights that super-
sede subsequent restrictions
that limit building in coastal
high-hazard zones.
However, after a storm, the
county should have policies
and inducements such as
density transfer bonuses in
place to encourage landown-
ers to build elsewhere, Pat-
terson said.
"Some people might want
to bail out take that money
and run," she said. "But com-
mon sense doesn't necessarily
prevail. It'snaive',to ,think that,
people who invest millions to
have homes on the beach
wouldn't want to rebuild."
Monumental task
But could they? That ques-

LIFETIME .....
It's another case of "pay me
now or pay me later."
Chair Keith Backhaus, an
elder advocate with the
Senior Friendship Center-
Venice, mentioned they are
doing a minor retrofit for a
resident that would consist of
a porchless entry, wider door-
ways in major living areas and
the bathroom, and added
kitchen accessibility.
"We're using volunteer
labor, deeply discounted
materials and every other
break we can and it's still
costing around $6,000," he
said.

rebuild my home again?" she
asked.
"I'd want that information
right in front of people,"
Patterson concurred. "People
come to this area not realizing
what can happen."
In a "Pollyanna" scenario,
Commissioner Paul Mercier
said a post-disaster recovery
plan could outline how the
county could "regain open
space, sell houses back, put
roads in different places."
"I'm prepared to spend the
money," he continued, "if we
can get a better result than
what we have now."
Wreford envisions a "fairly
leading edge" plan that would
significantly reduce opportu-
nities for "repetitive damage"
in vulnerable areas.
And there's plenty of
potential for such damage, he
said, noting 22 of 31 miles of
unincorporated shoreline is
already considered "critically
eroded.".
Wreford said the compre-
hensive effort will require
contributions from nearly
every county department and
take as much as a year to
complete.
"This is not something that
you could put together in a
couple of months," he said.
"This is a monumental
task," Commissioner Jon
Thaxton said. '"A year would
be optimistic."

HOUSING from Page 1 A
nity land trust.
Commissioners have given
the green light to approving
expedited permitting, slash-
ing impact fees, granting den-
sity bonuses, implementing
flexible standards and allow-
ing accessory dwelling units
for affordable housing pro-
jects.
The only incentive they've
nixed is a linkage element
that would have required
commercial development to
pay a fee based on square
footage to the community
housing fund.
All that remains, Thomas
said, is to "provide me with
some direction where to go
with an incentive-based pro-
gram."
Uncertainties
As Wednesday proved, that
is easier said that done, as
commissioners struggled to
reach consensus on drafting a
resolution defining how,,,
exactly, incentives will be
incorporated into an ordi-
nance expected to be adopt-
ed this fall.
Radauskas identified sev-
eral areas of uncertainty.
Density bonuses: Can
they be transferred elsewhere
or are they specific to the pro-
ject?
"If you grant bonuses -
you don't have to we want
to make sure they can't trans-,
fer to another site," Radau-
skas said.

Commissioners concurred
that density increases award-
ed as an affordable housing
bonus must be applied to the
project site.
Performance bonds:
Must developers provide a
bond covering all the afford-
able housing in a project or
can it be done piecemeal?
In a 50-unit project, could
the builder post a bond for
10-15 units? Radauskas ask-
ed.
That determination "will
go with the affordable hous-
ing ordinance that you will
see in the future," he said.
Concurrency: Commis-
sioners agreed that affordable
housing units must be built at
the same proportionate rate
as the market-rate units.
Covenants: Does an af-
fordable housing unit remain
under the aegis of the com-
munity housing program for
perpetuity or just for a set
number of years?
This issue generated some
vexation.
"Perpetuity is a long time,"
CommissionerPaul Mercier
said, noting the sale of a
house is one
of the ways
many families
gaini their
wealth.
"I would ( .
hate to take
away that
incentive," he
said.
Mercier


Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said if the only benefit,
gained by the developer is
expedited "
permitting,
then the units
should not .
r e inma in ,n
affordable .

ever.
However,
as Commis-Patterson
sioner Jon
Thaxton said,
if density and height bonuses
are included in tandem with
expedited
permitting
and other
benefits, it
would incur a
perpetual
obligation."
SApplica-
tion: In a sim-
ilar vein,
which incent- Thaxton
ives prompt
what benefits?
Patterson said she was
concerned that too many
requirements would discour-
age builders from participat-
"While the developer is rid
of the obligation" when the
project is built, she said, "he
also has to sell the product -
a product with strings
attached is harder to sell."
Green conflict?
That's why the county
should provide a menu of
options, Commissioner


Shannon Staub said.
"If they want to fast-track,
they have to
meet these uo
require-
ments. If they
don't, OK,"
she said.
Radauskas
said some
area builders
are concern-
ed that the Staub
county's em-
phasis on affordable housing
could penalize them for
building "green"'- environ-
mentally friendly homes.
Those homes are more ex-
pensive -and could preclude
them from meeting the coun-
ty's affordable housing goals,
he said.
"There's real paranoia
about exclusionary zoning,"
Radauskas said.
"Sometimes," Mercier said,
"paranoias are real."

OUR VIEW


GEO will provide new era at Florida Civil Commitment Center


he Florida Department of Children and
Families wasted no time in selecting
GEO Group as the new company to run
the troubled Florida Civil Commitment
Center for sexual offenders located in DeSoto
County.
The facility has clients from across the
state, including Southwest Florida.
The two companies submitting bids were
Liberty Behavioral Health, whose contract
was not renewed by DCF, and GEO Group
Inc.
It was fairly easy to see the handwriting on
the wall when Liberty's contract was not
renewed it really had very little chance of
being awarded the new bid to build a new
660-bed sex-offender facility and operate it.
After years of various problems at the center,


DCF had decided to go in. a different direc-
tion.
GEO brings an impressive resume to the
project. The company currently operates 62
facilities worldwide including prisons, deten-
tion centers and residential treatment cen-
ters.
We wonder if a 660-bed facility will be big
enough given that sexual offenders seem to
be a growing demographic in Florida. With
the bid already awarded it may now be a
moot point, but if there is any way DCF can
specify a larger facility without going through
the bidding process all over again, we think
that merits consideration. .
There is a byproduct of the awarding of the
bid to GEO Liberty employees will more
than likely be losing their jobs. They will be


losing their jobs because the parent compa-
ny did not perform to the satisfaction of DCE
This is nothing new. Private companies
either lose contracts or go out of business all
the time.
It will be a long time before people forget
the ENRON fraud and fiasco that cost thou-
sands of employees their jobs, stock and
retirement accounts.
Liberty employees will at least have the
opportunity to apply with GEO Group for
employment once the final contract is
worked out between DCF and GEO.' Time
won't be on the Liberty employees' side,
though, as June 30 is the final day of the
Liberty contract and GEO is not projected to
take over until January. In the interim the
Department of Corrections is to provide


security.
In a letter to Gov. Jeb Bush, county and
regional lawmakers, a group of Liberty
employees is asking for help in keeping them
informed during the transition, saying they
are not able to get answers from either DCF
or Liberty.
: From where we sit, DCF will get the new
facility operator it wants, GEO wins the bid
and the sex offenders requiring detention or
treatment will eventually be housed in a
brand-new facility specifically designed to
meet those needs.
The only ones losing out are the Liberty
employees who lose their jobs.
Life is unfair at times. We hope the Liberty
employees are successful in finding jobs with
GEO.


Red tide is



manatee threat


BY BOB RIGBY
GUEST COLUMNIST' .

Early mariners seeing
manatees for the first time
thought they were mermaids.
My mental images of mer-
maids instantly bring to mind
actress Daryl Hannah in the
movie "Splash."
Having seen many a man-
atee (sea cow), I just figured
those old sailors had been on
the ship way too long.
If you've never seen a man-
atee, they are large, bulky
marine mammals that de-
vour 200 to 300 pounds of sea
grass a day. Presently the state
population exceeds 3,000. A
little calculation of sea grass
destroyed daily by manatee
exceeds 600,000 pounds. It's
all the state can do to keep up
with the sea grass planting
programs, against the raven-
ous appetite of these mon-
sters.
In two unrelated reports,
manatees deaths were report -
ed at approximately 10 per-
cent in 2005; sea grass in-
creased by 12 percent.
Two weeks ago, in spite of
wishes, demands and threats
of lawsuits by 20 environ-
mental groups, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Commis-
sion, downlisted the manatee
from endangered to threat-
ened.
The red tide of 2005 was
responsible for 81 manatee
deaths. Many of those mana-
tee mortalities were not ac-
credited to red tide, because
the remains were so deterio-
rated a necropsy could not be
performed, so the deaths
were listed as natural or boat-
propeller related. A total of
396 manatee deaths were
recorded in 2005, which in-
clude natural, river locks,
water temperature or boat re-
lated about 10 percent of
the manatee population.
However, the manatee
population continues to in-
crease.
Each year the FWC per-
forms the difficult task of
counting manatees in their
habitat. Of course, the count
is made easier by conducting
it during the winter months
when manatees collect in
warm waters, generally
around power plants dis-
charge points, or warmer
waters in Southwest Florida.
The nianatee population
has increased 100 percent
each decade since the 1980s.
The environmental groups
have taken it upon them-
selves to pressure elected offi-
cials to regulate boaters and
dock builders to a point of
suffocation. Several dock
builders lost their businesses,
and boat sales slowed in
water-restricted areas of Flor-
ida, where recreational boat-
ers had to crawl in no-wake
zones, spending hours to get
to open waters to fish.
The environmental groups


actually hurt themselves. So
much freedom on the waters
was denied, the boaters and
dock builders formed a coali-
tion call StandingWatch, with
a statewide membership of
23,000 and growing.
Elected officials soon
learned retirees with boats
didn't want their life-long
dream of buying a home in
Florida with a boat at a back-
yard dock tampered with, and
didn't like their freedoms
restricted. Soon the environ-
mental groups were facing
people with money, and
marine science showing the
actual manatee count in-
,creasing.
Restrictions on 1 oat
speeds were eased, no-wake
zones were challenged and
regulations on docks were lift-
ed.
The pressure from the
boating community was on,
and elected officials were
receiving letters and e-mails
on a regular basis not from
individuals, but from Stand-
ingWatch chapters, with hun-
dreds of members. Other
groups of fishermen were
formed, and coalitions with
the new groups were formed.
The elected officials respond-
ed.
So FWC downlisted the
manatee. The environmental
groups were screaming at
commission members for
this egregious act.
Last year in an editorial,
the Venice Gondolier Sun
asked StandingWatch and the
Save the Manatee Club to join
together in helping to ad-
vance my cure for red tide.
Jim Kalvin, the president of
StandingWatch, attended the
next Venice City Council
meeting, at which a status
report was given by Charlie
Powell and Dan Kelly of
Venice High School, where
red tide testing was being
conducted, funded by the city
of Venice.
Kalvin asked Powell and
me to attend a Standing
Watch board meeting in
Lakeland to make a presenta-
tion on the red tide cure. The
Standing Watch bbard of
directors decided to help with
funding the school's testing
process. Shortly thereafter,
Kalvin gave the school's ma-
rine science department
$1,000.
Not one word was ever
heard from Save the Manatee,
even though the school post-
ed test results for everyone to
read. Powell and Kelly have
continually updated the Web
site, which contains all the
test data from the beginning
of the testing program in
2004.
The school has produced a
very professional PowerPoint
presentation (sarasotacoun-
tyschools.net/vhs). Powell
has shown the presentation

LiaS FROM OUR LEADERS



GBAI more than a social dub


Editor:
Mr. Leytze's letter only presents one aspect of our associa-
tion. Social activities are not the sole function of Golden Beach
Associates.
We are what is considered, by definition, a voluntary "neigh-
borhood association." I agree that because membership in a
homeowners association is mandatory to its members, we do
not fall into that category.
The bylaws of GBAI say we are "a social club for mutual
community improvement and the promotion of civic and
social interest among its members." The bylaws go on to say
one of our functions is to "promote, foster and perpetuate ben-
eficial social, civic and intellectual activities among its mem-
bers and people in the community....."
In the political arena we vote for representation in our local,
state and federal governments. The voters certainly don't
always agree with the positions that those ultimately elected
officials take.
By electing a board of directors, members of a neighbor-
hood association are doing the same thing, and not all mem-
bers (voters) will agree with the positions said board maintains.
But because the board's function is to make decisions for the
greater good of the neighborhood, not individuals, they do
indeed have the "power or right to represent the actual home-
owners of the Golden Beach neighborhood," despite Mr.
Leytze's claim to the contrary.
Currently, as in the past, official representatives of Golden
Beach have stood before city council to address issues that
affect our neighborhood and the larger community, and hope-
fully will continue to do so in the future.

No energy'silver
bullet'coming
Editor:
Your editorial on global
warming was well meaning
but myopic. Although pres-
ently we are the "bad guys" of
pollution, the United States
(and Europe) will be overtak-
en.
Solar roofs and power
plants, wind farms and the
like are too expensive for
most of the world. Germany,
the only country close to its
goals in the Kyoto Protocol, is
4 percent over and has an
aging population, with zero
growth. There are 1.1 billion
Indians and 1.5 billion Chi-
nese not in the Kyoto Protocol
growing at least 10 percent
per year.
Everybody wants a car and


decent housing. The West,
including Americans, cannot
expect to deny the rest of the
world the right to have a bet-
ter life.
World oil, coal and gas
consumption will increase.
Only shortages will slow the
rate of growth. Remember
how a few months ago the
United States Congress stop-
ped the Chinese from buying
an American oil company?
Much more will be spent
on converting solid fuels and
farm crops into liquid fuels
than will be spent on solar
power or wind (which will
never be adequate anyway).
The hydrogen economy is
largely a pipe dream.
We will mine the ocean for
the methane hydrate. Burn-
ing any fossil fuel increases


greenhouse gases. People still
refuse to allow nuclear power,
the only nonglobal-warming
source of power.
The Earth's population will
grow. We all need to invent or
accept a way to decrease the
amount of energy required.
There is no technological
solution on the horizon.

Englewood

Her glass is half full
Editor:
Once again the very boring
Bush basher from Englewood
has displayed that his glass is
always half empty.
The most corrupt city gov-
ernment in the nation (Time
magazine) prior to Katrina
was New Orleans. This week,
the National Guard was sent
in to restore order the recent-
ly re-elected Democrat mayor
cannot provide. Bush's fault?
Next, the stock market is
on a roller-coaster ride. Right
now it is as high as, it has been
since the Clinton-Gore reces-
sion.
How about the out-of-
wedlock birth rate and the
divorce rate is this the pres-
ident's fault? I think not, but it
does make a good case for a
strong defense-of-marriage
amendment, doesn't it?
"Bin Laden is still at large"
yes, but al-Zarqawi is at
room temperature, and we
had the best chance to get bin
Laden during the Clinton
administration but they blew
it.
We have not been attacked
since Sept. 11 at home, com-
pared to the attacks on the
World Trade center in 1993,
The Kobar tower bombings,
Mogadishu, the USS Cole
bombing and the embassy
bombings in Africa under the
previous administration.
The military and economic
threat from China cannot be


too serious since they have
just agreed to open 750 more
McDonaldses there, to sup-
plant the 750 that are already
open.
Don't forget, home owner-
ship is at the highest rate ever,
the Medicare drug prescrip-
tion plan is saving millions for
our seniors and unemploy-
ment rates are at the lowest
levels since the Reagan years.
My glass is full of optimism
for our nation. Sorry yours is
always half empty.

Youth center is
badly needed
Editor:
After reading the article
about the South County
Young Adult Center by Greg
Giles, I felt compelled to
write.
I am a current board mem-
ber for the SCYAC. I've heard
some people say that SCYAC's
closing doesn't matter; those
kids still have the YMCA or
the Boys & Girls Club. While
both of these organization are
very worthwhile, for many
reasons the teens have given
us, they don't feel like they fit
in at either of them. The
SCYAC was "their" place. This
was their only "haven." They
were safe there. Theywere not
judged there. They could be
themselves.
I know firsthand what a
great place this was for the
teens not just as a board
member, but as the mom of a
teenager who regularly
attended the center. She got
help after school, while I was
at work, with her homework.
Ed was teaching her some
basic accounting.
I knew that my daughter
was somewhere safe and not

Beachgoers, bag your butts


Keep it clean. I'm responding to the article that says "dirty
beaches." I'd like to thank that person for calling and ask the
people who read your paper to please keep our beaches clean.
Carry a bag for your junk. There's cigarette butts that kill the
fish and any other junk they might throw on the beach. We live
here, it's our beach and we want it to look nice.


Should investigate. I would
like to comment on the May
28-30 paper on the unprofes-
sional part from the guy
about the Sarasota County
Jail. I have been in the
Sarasota County Jail. I've been
on medication for five years. I
had the best psychiatrist in
Venice. I was denied all my
medication while I was there.
My psychiatrist called the jail
six times while I was there.
They never gave me the prop-
er medication. Also while I
was there, I was a trustee, I
witnessed people handcuffed
to the floor, blankets thrown
over them and beaten by four
or five guards, and then the
guards get their story together
and put everything together
so everything matches up.
The Sarasota County Jail is a
secret society. The things that
go on in there, the outside
people do not known about
because they are not allowed
in there. I have seen things
that happen in the Sarasota
County Jail that if the general
public knew about it, the
Sarasota County Jail would be
shut down.
The food service in there is
atrocious. The medical condi-
tions in there are atrocious.
The whole jail is improperly
run and I think the state
should investigate it.
Done deal. There will cer-
tainly be a lot of conversation
concerning the new Venice
High School and where it
should be built. The school
was built before the intra-
coastal was placed next to it.
They will never change the
route of the intracoastal or
extremely limit the bridge
Spenings.. Here is where ve
must use logic and. common
sense. The high school should

construction. Same figures
used, 95 percent of the stu-
dents, teachers and support
staff do not live on the island.
The new school should be
built where most those who
use it live. Another example is
the grade school. It was sup-
posed to be used as an emer-
gency shelter and that didn't
happen. The end result will
be, the high school will end
up being built on the island.
It's an emotional decision.
End of discussion. It's a done
deal.
Put it aside. I have a ques-
tion about some of the front
yards in South Venice. I've
been here 25 years and still
can't understand why so
many people leave all their
garbage, their personal gar-
bage, and yard garbage, out in
front of their house. Don't
they get that that's the first
impression, and that's also
dragging down the neighbor-
hood? I'm talking about boxes
of garbage and cans, right in
the front driveway. Who
wants to see personal hygiene
boxes in the recycle bin? Put
them on the side of the house.
Who wants to see garbage
cans overflowing, with all the
stray cats getting into them?
The same thing with lawn-
mowers, bricks, containers,
kids' toys all that. Put them
on the side or better yet in the
backyard.
If I'm not mistaken, there is
a code about garbage cans in
the front yard anyway. They're
supposed to be out of sight.
The code enforcement num-
ber is 861-3280. If anybody's


got a problem with the trash
that may live next door, they
should give that number a
call.
Preserve our paradise.
Keep Caspersen Beach just as
it is, no changes. There are
very few beaches as nice. We
don't need more police patrol
tours. Keep it under the coun-
ty's jurisdiction; otherwise the
developers will get it. Anyone
who wants to change Cas-
persen should be questioned
by a citizen's watch commit-
tee. What a wonderful par-
adise we have here let's be
active to ensure it stays that
way. All beaches receive a few
complaints during the year.
We have a good situation, no
change is needed. I visited
Caspersen many times,
sometimes several times dur-
ing the week. I would not take
my grandchildren to the far
south end, which is a long
way to walk to start with, but I
do take them near the parking
areas. I might add, I have
never seen lewd behavior
there yes, responsible
adults take liberties regarding
their attire, but nothing ille-
gal. I think there is plenty of
beach for everyone. Let's keep
Caspersen as it is under the
county.
. Spoiled nation. We have
become a nation of spoiled,
judgmental brats, especially
when it comes to the issue of
immigration. I am a fourth- or
fifth-generation member of a
family of Scotch-Irish immi-
grants who made their money
bootlegging in the hills of
Kentucky before moving to
southern Illinois and buying
up land and livestock also
illegal. I say people who are
willing to risk their lives to be
here have more American
spirit than us comfortable cit-
izens.

BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Major expansion in Venice
with new facilities is a priority
for TAKE CARE of Venice.
Owner and Executive Admin-
istrator Suzanne Wise con-
firmed the company has ac-
quired property on the island
and is, currently seeking per-
mission to enlarge, redesign
and convert the premises into
a gorgeous building to be an
asset to the community.
The former physicians
office on the eastern side of
the entrance to 'Venice Re-
gional Medical Center, 600
The Rialto, is to be the new
headquarters.
"I'm very excited to stay on
the island, having secured
this building next to the hos-
pital," said Wise.
The move will increase the
headquarters from 800 to
2,500 square feet, enabling
the company to expand it's
resources and services.
"We will represent our-
selves in a professional man-
ner in a fine, appealing build-
ing which will blend in to the
island architecture," com-
mented Wise.
At this stage the proposal is
to have a two-story building
with a Mediterranean style,


with the sidewalks being
redone in attractive paver
bricks.
The Venice office has oper-
ated for eight years at 206
South Harbor Drive South in
an old building with both
administrative and health
care personnel.
TAKE CARE acquired Bon
Secours' home health agency,
growing the business signifi-
cantly in other avenues,. but
causing it to be bursting out
of space in the Venice office.
Wise confirmed she want-
ed TAKE CARE to stay on the
island, and the new premises
will allow for expansion and
also locate it close to Venice
Regional Medical Center. The
new office will be built to hur-
ricane standards, have its
own generator and be in a
safe location.
From Michigan, Wise, a
registered nurse, came to
Sarasota and began pursuing
her love of home health care.
Eleven years ago she opened
TAKE CARE of Sarasota with
four employees and now em-
ploys more than 600 health
care staff in her companies.
Realizing the need for
home health care inVenice, in
1997 TAKE CARE opened a
second office. Its third office,
in Bradenton, opened in


1999. TAKE CARE TRANS-
PORT, non-emergency med-
ical transport vans, was intro-
duced to better serve their
clients in 2000.
TAKE CARE is a private-
duty, home health care pro-
vider with the goal to match a
client's personal and health
care needs with a caregiver's
personality and skills. Em-
ployees are registered nurses,
'licensed practical nurses,
physical therapists, certified
nursing assistants, home
health aides and compan-
ions.
In Venice TAKE CARE has
125 clients, and Wise expects
to increase the employee base
as additional clients seek the
company's services. TAKE
CARE's service area stretches
north to Ellenton and south
to Punta Gorda.
If the need and growth
occurs for home care in Eng-
lewood and North Port, it is
possible the company could
open additional local offices.
The opening date for the
new Venice office will be
determined when city ap-
proval is granted, but Wise is
anticipating September 2006.

Sweet treat

of the new coffee shop in Venice called The Espresso Room.


"The Veranda Inn is not
for sale," said an emphatic
Stephen LeBlanc, general
manager.
Rumors had been circulat-
ing since an advertisement
appeared in a local real estate
magazine. LeBlanc con-
firmed he had called the
advertiser's listed telephone
number but had received no
response.
It was listed as the Veranda
Inn Resort and he believes it
may have referred to proper-
ties with similar names in
Englewood and Lido Key.
LeBlanc has owned the the
Veranda Inn & Cafe of Venice,
625 South Tamiami Trail on
the island, for 10 years.
"It is not under contract or
for sale, and I have no inten-
tion of selling," confirmed
LeBlanc.
He stated the Kingfish
Cafe adjoining the inn is very
successful and both have had
a good year.
LeBlanc is also general
manager of the Days Inn,
1710 South Tamiami Trail,
which he acquired in 1998,
Subway opened a few
months ago and is doing fan-
tastic business, he said.
Both locations are ap-
proved to Category 3 hurri-
cane protection, stated Le-
Blanc, so even during storms
in the off-season they fill up
quickly.
New village or
square for Shamrock
Big plans are being pre-
pared for property at the
intersection of Tamiami Trail
and Shamrock Boulevard.
"We're very committed as
developers to get locations to
the marketplace for local ten-
ants and buyers," said Lloyd
Robbins, vice president of
Harry Robbins Associates in
Sarasota.
His company is developing
a 14,000-square-foot, two-
story Mediterranean-style
building fronting Shamrock
to be the expanded offices of


Stanley Dean Insurance
Agency Inc. Some surplus
space will be available for
lease as office condos and
retail.
The existing Dean office, a
former bank, at 1729 South
yTamiami Trail, will bel ay::i
able for a bank.
An additional 6,000-
square-foot, single-story
building designed for small
businesses wanting 800- to
1,000-square-foot locations
will complete the pedestrian-
friendly project close to
Lowe's' new location.
Currently unnamed, it is
likely to be called Shamrock
Shopping Village or Sham-
rock Square.
Hampton Inn sold
Following the recent ac-
quisition of Venice Hampton
Inn & Suites, 881 Venetia Bay
Blvd., the new owners are
planning to continue and
complete the major renova-
tions started last year.
A group of Dallas investors,
Heartland Venice Partners
LP, acquired the 1997-built
property for $12.3 million
from Venetia Bay Hotel Asso-
ciates.
Charter One Hotels &
Resorts of Sarasota manages
Venice Hampton Inn & Suites,
hotels in St. Petersburg,
upstate New York, Sarasota's
Best Western, Lido Key's Co-
quina on the Beach and The
Palm Bay Club on Siesta Key.
"One third of the 109
rooms at the Hampton Inn &
Suites were renovated last
year and. we are going to fin-
ish the remaining rooms this
fall," commented Jim Popie-
linski, president of Charter
One.
The company, which pro-
vides full hotel management
services, is currently seeking
future hotel sites and land
throughout Florida and the
Southeast.

Shut down
for remodeling
David Wieter, general
manager of Appliance
Depot & More, 901 U.S. 41
Bypass, confirmed that the
announcement it is closing
for remodeling relates to a
three-day period sometime
in July.
"We're remodeling the
inside, opening up new floors
and walls to add a full line of
furniture," commented Wiet-
er.
The company colors


changed and will be integrat-
ed into the new look for the
store. Call 485-0000.
Valuing commercial
property
Land and commercial
property owners. Realtor.,
and 'prospective purchasers
will be interested in the new
Purdy Method of land valua-
tion.
Broker Terry Purdy of
Merritt Realty Resources
Corporation, 307-C W. Venice
Ave., has set up this standard-
ized method of land valuation
to stop the retardation of
redevelopment due to over-
priced properties.
"It's already proving suc-
cessful and I welcome feed-
back," said Purdy.
The objective is to encour-
age owners to put realistic
prices on property based on
points to consider in valua-
tions.
According to Purdy, the
method can be used on indi-
vidual lots, multi-family pro-
jects, big subdivisions and
even retail centers. All it takes
is a simple understanding of
real estate.
Details are available on the
Web site purdysmethod.com.
Call 320-6079.
Drive-in opening
in December
The opening of a new
Sonic America Drive-In has
been delayed as there are a
few more items for the city of
Venice Architectural Review
Board to approve, according
to Curtis Hare, partner and
regional manager.
"If we get the go-ahead, we
can start construction in
October and will complete in
75 days to open in Decem-
ber," he said.
Located on East Venice
Avenue between Mont-
gomery's Carpets and River-
side Bank, it will be the sec-
ond Sonic America's Drive-In.
This store will be nonstan-
dard, with a Mediterranean
architectural appearance. It
will seat 40 at 11 tables and
have 26 vehicle stalls.
For the opening, Hare will
hire 80, eventually settling to
a team of 50 people.
"Everything goes out on
wheels," he said. "All our
carhops use roller skates."

Road building takes time, cooperation


STAFF REPORT

By the time Gary Downing
gets heavily involved in build-
ing a road, years have passed
since the idea was born.
Downing works closely
with the design team, so
that when the first shovel of
dirt is turned the road is
guaranteed to look like it is
supposed to.
As the Sarasota County
manager of road program
construction, his job is to
oversee all aspects of building
a road.'
Whether it is overseeing a
quick patching of a pothole
by the county's Public Works
crews, or acting as a supervi-
sor to contracted construc-
tion firms, Downing must be
available to answer questions
and make decisions.
Actual work begins after
the design team has complet-
ed staking out the path of the
road and the county commis-
sioners have approved a con-
struction firm to do the work.
The construction team is
on the frontline of complaints
from angry residents and
business owners.


While vital to helping
thousands, of vehicles get
around each day, the con-
struction crew's job is often a
thankless one.
"Most people really don't
like us," Downing said.
By the time the work actu-
ally begins, most people have
been thinking about the road
project for years.
"It starts out by people
wondering why it has taken
so long to start and then it
quickly goes to people angry
it isn't done yet," Downing
said.
Downing said that if work
projects are going to have
extreme impacts on homes or
businesses, phased construc-
tion is considered.
Sarasota County Admin-
istrator Jim Ley said the costs,
for such work are often high-
er, but the impacts are mini-
mized.
"There is a great political
benefit to that," Ley said.
"Being as accommodating as
practical is often the best
course to take."
Once construction begins,
work is not as simple as laying
down some blacktop and for-


getting about it.
Roads cost so much that
they need to be built to last,
Downing said.
The first thing done is to
clear the land a create a base
with which the road is built.
"Not all dirt is created
equal," he said.
Because of settling issues,
the softness or hardness of
the soil is a determining fac-
tor.
And while the design engi-
neers work diligently to let the
construction crews know
what they are dealing with,
surprises do occur.
"It can come from a
misidentified utility to an
underground pit," Downing
said. "No two projects are
alike. Often, very few sections
within a 'project are alike,
either."
Traffic safety and access
are also big factors to consid-
er while construction is plan-
ned.
"Most people would rather .
drive through a narrow con-
struction zone than take even
the shortest detours," Down-
ing said.
Building the road is similar


in complexity to building a
house, officials said.
Creating a road includes
establishing a solid base and
then adding pieces on top
with a roof of asphalt.
Sarasota County builds to
higher standards than the
state requires, to save costs in
the long-term.
Coordination with other
government entities and utili-
ty companies can smooth a
process or create frustrating
delays.
"They have to be right
there beside you," Downing
said. "When they aren't,
everything gets delayed."
Downing coordinates pro-
jects to put in water or sewer
lines so crews don't have to
rip up a neighborhood. road
twice.
Recent hurricanes, howev-
er, have created frustration
with utility companies.
Each time Florida was hit
by a hurricane in the past two
years, utility crews have dis-
appeared for weeks at a time,
Downing said.
Florida Power & Light
crews left everything in place,
on a Sarasota County project


after Hurricane Wilma.
"They left everything be-
hind and we had no idea
where they went or when
they would come back," said
Downing, adding the inci-
dent'created a six-week pro-
ject delay.
Most road work can be
completed in less than 10
months. Some are planned to
go longer the Center Road
project should take about 18
months and some en-
counter delays that stretch
them out beyond that time
period.
A factor currently delaying
construction is a general lack
of supplies and labor, which
increases costs and makes
fewer companies willing to
take on county-initiated pro-
jects.
Delays, including rain de-
lays and environmental con-
siderations, have to be built
into every construction con-
tract finishing date.
"You try to plan for some-
thing like that, since it limits
the amount of time you can
work from year-round to six
months, at best," Downing
said.

Dove Club permits go on sale July 1


Sheepsheads get no respect


FLORIDA FISH AND WILDLIFE COMMISSION

Each year, the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) offers ex-
ceptional dove hunting op-
portunities throughout the
state. The FWC manages
eight special-opportunity
dove fields through its Dove
Club the agency's special-
opportunity dove hunt pro-
gram.
Beginning 10 a.m. (EDT)
July 1, sportsmen can pur-
chase dove club permits at
any county tax collector's of-
fice, authorized license agent,
online at MyFWC.com/dove
or by calling toll-free 1(888)
HUNT-FLORIDA (486-8356).
The deadline to purchase
permits is 11:59 p.m. (EDT)
Sept. 10.
Dove club permits are
available on a first-come,
first-served basis and allow
one adult and one youth
(under age 16) to participate
in all scheduled hunts for a
designated dove field (up to
eight days). These Saturday


half-day hunts cost $150 and
enable the permit holder and
youth to both take a daily
bag limit of birds.
Dove hunting opportuni-
ties are in high demand, and
these special hunts offer the
perfect setting for friends and
family to hunt together in a
social atmosphere. Hunters
who purchase the annual per-
mits save more than half the
cost of regular daily permits
for the season.
There are three new spe-
cial-opportunity dove fields
that will be open this coming
season Allapattah Flats
Public Small-Game Hunting
Area (PSGHA) in Martin
County, Fussell Farm PSGHA
in Polk County and Water-
melon Pond PSGHA in
Alachua County.
The other five special-
opportunity dove fields al-
ready are familiar to some
hunters, because they were
open last year. They are:
Schneider Farms PSGHA (Es-
cambia County), Caravelle
Ranch (Putnam County),


Dexter/Mary Farms Unit (Vo-
lusia County), Hilochee (Lake
County) and. Frog Pond
(Miami-Dade County).
Dove "day" permits also
are available for $35. These
daily permits enable one adult
and one youth (under age 16)
to hunt together but only
allows one bag limit of birds
between the two hunters.
Additionally, there is an
option to buy a $10 youth
permit at the same time a
dove day permit is purchas-
ed. The youth permit allows
the youth to harvest his own
daily bag limit of birds, while
hunting under the supervi-
sion of the adult dove day
permit holder. The dove day
and youth permits go on sale
10 a.m. (EDT) Sept. 18, and
they are transferable.
Interested hunters should
purchase permits early, be-
cause demand for these
hunts often exceeds their
availability. For more infor-
mation on these great dove
hunting opportunities, visit
MyFWC.com/dove.


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
FISTIING (OLUIINIST

What fish is the No. 1 victim
of the new measuring system?
There's no question in my
mind that it is my sheepshead.
Here's the scoop, if you
haven't figured it out yet.
The FWC decided to gen-
eralize the measuring of
most fish. Up to July 1, a
sheepshead was measured to
the center of the fork in the
tail. With the new system,
you pinch or squeeze the


edge of both ends of the tail.
What this means is a 12-inch
former legal sheepshead, now
becomes a 10-11 inch keeper.
The problem is, 90 percent
of the sheepies are caught
in the four winter months.
That's also the period when
the snowbirds are here. For
the most part, these are the
people that keep way too
many of the sheepies. Of
course we can thank the
FWC for that also.
The old 10-fish limit was
raised to 15 a few years ago.
Who needs or wants to clean
15? Now the 15 limit will
include a few former shorts.
Now the story gets a bit
muddy. Bluefish and all
mackerel are still measured
to the fork. That is not a
typo. Go to the FWC web-
site. There goes their theory.
Just a week or two ago, they
announced that starting Sept.
1 the snook minimum will
be 27 inches instead of 26.
Could this be their way of
admitting a mistake? Why
didn't they increase the


sheepies to 13? Simple, they
get no respect. They're the
Rodney Dangerfield of the
fish world. If this keeps up, in
about 20 years I'll have to
change my name.
The jetties have been hot
for catch-and-release snook.
Most of them are being
caught on live white bait
(greenies). Hopefully, most of
the fishermen are using circle
or Kahle hooks with one split
shot and 30-pound fluoro-
carbon leader. The reason is
that most of the time the
hook will be on the lip as
opposed to the gut.
I've been getting scattered
reports of pompano at the
jetties as well as the pier. The /
beach snookers are also get-/
ting some macs, jacks and!
whiting. /
Well, fellow sheepshead
ites, the time has come
say goodbye until next wee
Dave Hack/Mr
Sheepshead can be cont
at (941) 486-1998 or.
321-8849.

Federal tests find rollovers less likely in new SUVs


By JUSTIN HYDE
DETROIT FREE PRESS
WASHINGTON New
sport utility vehicles and
pickups are less likely to roll
over in a crash than ever
before, according to federal
tests released Tuesday, but
safety advocates question
how much the tests can do to
reduce rollover crashes.
The National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration
also said automakers are sell-
ing more SUVs with electron-
ic stability control, a system
that's been shown to sharply
reduce accidents. It may
become a requirement in
future models.
While rollovers are rela-
tively rare accounting for
less than 3 percent of all
crashes they cause a third.
of all traffic-related deaths,


killing 10,411 people in the
United States in 2004,
according to the most recent
federal data.
NHTSA's rollover ratings
derive from a calculation
based on the distance
between a vehicle's wheels
and the height of its center of
gravity. NHTSA says that for-
mula, known as the static
stability factor, accurately
predicts the chances of a
rollover in a single-vehicle.
rash.
Under its system, a five-
star vehicle has a less-than-
10 percent chance of rolling
over, while vehicles with four'
stars have a 10 percent to 20
percent risk. Three stars sig-
nifies a 20 percent to 30 per-
cent risk.
NHTSA said that of the 93
SUV models it has tested for


2006, 39 earned a four-star
grade, with the remainder
garnering three, stars. The
worst performer, the four-
wheel-drive version of the
Nissan Xterra, was estimated
to have a 25 percent rollover
risk.
Among the 59 pickup mod-
els tested so far, NHTSA said
43 earned four stars, with
most others earning three
stars.
The model list for this year
includes corporate twins as
well as results from vehicles
tested in previous years and
sold with no changes in 2006.
The results have shown a
steady improvement over the
past few years as automakers
built more crossovers, or car-
based SUVs, which generally
ride lower than traditional
truck-based SUVs.


Among SUVs, the best per-
formers are the Chrysler
Pacifica and the Ford
Freestyle, at 13 percent, and
the Chevrolet HHR with a 14
percent rollover risk, scores
similar to passenger cars.
Other safety experts say
the agency should use more
than just math to predict the
probability of a rollover. In
the wake of the Firestone tire
debacle, Congress forced
NHTSA to add a driving test
to its rollover measurements.
That test puts vehicles
through a sharp fishhook
turn at between 33 and 50
mph to see if they tip up on
two wheels.
For 2006 SUVs, NHTSA lists
13 as having tipped up in its
driving tests, including the
Ford Escape, the Chevrolet
Equinox and the Hyundai.


Santa Fe. ,
But under NHTSA's system,
those tests have little weight
in a vehicle's final score no
more than a half-star differ-
ence as the agency cites
research that few vehicles get
into rollover accidents with-
out striking an object. The
Equinox and its twin, the
Pontiac Torrent, receive four
stars despite tipping their
wheels in tests last year.
Consumer Reports, which
has long called for NHTSA to
use driving tests to measure
rollover propensity, will not
recommend any vehicle that
tips its wheels in NHTSA's
tests. P
Joan Claybrook, president
of Public Citizen, notes that
under NHTSA's rules vehicles
get extra points for passing
the handling test, but aren't


, pickups

penalized for failing it.
"It's very misleading to the
public," Claybrook said.
"Tip-up has always been
considered a precursor to
rollover. ... If you have sever-
al models with four stars and
a tip-up, there's something
wrong with the test."
As part of its campaign
against rollovers, NHTSA is
expected to propose a rule
later this year requiring
automakers to install elec-
tronic stability control on
many models.
Several studies have shown
that stability control, which
keeps vehicles from skidding,
can reduce. single-vehicle
crashes by as much as 60 per-
cent. NHTSA said 57 SUV
models now offer stability
control as a standard feature,
up from 20 in 2003.,


.AUTO Q & A

By BRAD BERGHOLDT
KNIGHT RIDDER NEWSPAPERS
Q. I've replaced the disc brake rotors
on my car twice due to distortion, and
have finally trained everyone in the
house to use the gears, rather than the.
brakes, on hills to prevent damage. Also, I
was pleasantly surprised at the low cost
of the new rotors. It was actually cheaper
to replace them than to have them
surfaced. Is this common?
-Jim L., San Jose, Calif.
A. You have brought up two valid
points regarding automotive brakes that
might be helpful to others. Brakes
convert a vehicle's kinetic energy to heat.
with each and every stop, and when
using the brakes to maintain a safe sped
on long descents.
Friction between the brake pads and
rotors generates heat, and the heat is
transferred to the brake caliper, wheel,
nearby suspension components and
surrounding air. Larger, beefier brake
pads and calipers do this well, as do
thick, ventilated brake rotors. Some
vehicles, such as my Chevy Tahoe, in the
quest for-weight and/or cost reduction
have rather skimpy brakes, which are
prone to rotor warping and eating pads.
During normal city and Highway
driving, using the brakes exclusively to
slowior stop the vehicle is no problem,
but on hills a little help from the engine is
a good idea. I'm referring to a descent of
more than 20 or 30 seconds requiring
braking to maintain desired speed.
Slipping one's automatic or manual
transmission down a notch or two
provides engine braking, as the engine
resists running fast with a closed throttle.
Assuming a typical four- or five-speed
transmission and axle ratio, one can
safely drop to third gear at speeds up to
50 to 60 mph, and second gear up to 30 to
40 mph. Too low a gear for a given speed
can cause engine damage, so watch your
tachometer or consult the owner's
manual for safe maximum speeds in each
gear.
As an experiment, I tested the brake
temperature of my Tahoe's front brake
rotors during various driving conditions
using a non-contact digital pyrometer.
Here are the results, listed in Fahren-
heit, with an ambient temperature of 64
degrees, as I pulled over and measured
the rotors through the wheel spokes:
Highway driving/no brake use
(coasted to a stop: 85 degrees:
Around town stop/go driving: 152,
166, 137 degrees;
-- Descending a winding 1,800-foot
grade over six miles at 45 mph, using
third gear to hold back, rarely braking:
161 degrees;
The same grade repeated, this time
using only the brakes to maintain 45
mph: 502 degrees and a noticeable
burning odor!
As you can see, higher speeds and
frequent braking tortures the brake pads
and rotors, leading to pad damage and
rotor distortion.
You're right about the low cost of rhany
brake rotors. According to my parts guru
Tom Taylor, at www.rockauto.com, many
replacement brake rotors cost less than
the labor to resurface them. Taylor cites
the widespread use of simpler, hub-less
rotors and the influx of low-cost auto
parts from China.
One leading brand offers three levels
of brake rotor, from the $7.67 economy
model to the $24.79 premium label for a
1990 Chevy Cavalier. The higher-priced
rotor claims better metallurgy, quietness
and fade resistance, but Taylor's experi-
ence with the less costly rotors in light
duty service has been favorable.

BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER


It's a beautiful day on Venice is-
land.
You're sitting in your car, waiting
for traffic to start moving again.
You begin to tap your, fingers,
scan through the radio stations.
Impatience rears its ugly head.
S u are waiting for the Venice
Avenue Bridge to go down so you
can move forward in your life and in
traffic.
If you travel to Venice island fre-
quently, you have probably been
stuck at one of the bridges any num-
ber of times. Chances are, you have
cursed your ill luck at the wait to get
on %ith your life, and maybe you've
even become unhappy with the
bridge tender.
Who is the person inside that little
box who seems to habitually slow you
down every day?
What do.they do inside that tiny
room, which is the size of the few
remaining apartments available in
Sarasota County right now?
Do they just sit and watch TV?
How do they spend their day?
When and why do the bridges go
up when they do?
Wouldn't they get lonely up there
by themselves?
Only the bridge tenders them-
selves know the answers to these
questions.
Bea Lind is a woman who knows
the answers to these and many more
questions.
She seems to know everything
there is to know about bridge tend-
ing in Sarasota County. She is a 77
year-old dynamo, who has worked
the bridges for 16 years.
Lind works at the Venice Avenue
Bridge and has for 10 years. Her base
of operations is a small room, more
like an. apartment than an office.
Inside, there are a couple of chairs, a
TV, a microwave, a refrigerator, a
sink, the smallest bathroom stall on
the planet and, of course, the bridge


console.
She runs a tight ship. All new
bridge tenders are left to Lind's capa-
ble hands, which seem to be more
capable than most. On the day of my
visit to Lind, she was training a new
tender, Ryan Mikesell, who is a stu-
dent at University of South Florida.
"It's a great job for a student,"
Mikesell said. He will bring his
homework, a book or his guitar to
occupy him during his downtime,
"We don't touch anything on the
.console other [han the buttons,"
Lind said. "If you touch anything
other than the buttons, it gets dirty.
When something looks dirty, you do
dirty work."
What she said makes sense, espe-
cially since she is responsible for all
of the drivers that pass over the
Venice Avenue Bridge.
Things seem to happen a lot to
the bridge tenders that don't typical-
ly occur on other jobs. Like many
people who apply for jobs they like
the sound of, Lind realized there was
a lot more to bridge tending than
just sitting in a booth all day watch-
ing TV (Lind and her team each chip
in $9.50 a month for Direct TV) Lind
is no stranger to bizarre things hap-
pening on the bridge.
'A guy with a towel on his head
used to come by and play'Taps' on a
bugle every morning," Lind said. "I
haven't seen him in a while though."
Another instance of strange hap-
penings while working on the bridge
happened to Lind when she couldn't
find a boat that was supposed to be
waiting for clearance.
"He said that he was going to wait
for the bridge to go up," Lind
recalled. "So I looked for him, and he
wasn't there. I was looking all over
for him, and he had already passed
underneath the bridge! Snuck right
underneath and heading on down
south."
He didn't want to wait. Lind was
happy that no one got hurt, and to
her knowledge no damage occurred.
The grates are a scary part of the


SUN PHOiTOS by CCuRiTI\NY LINN


From underneath the Venice Avenue Bridge, it is an impressive sight to behold.


COMING SUNDAY


Bridgekeeper Bea Lind looks over the Intracoastal Waterway and the island she guards.


GIANT SQUID A MYSTERIOUS CREATURE


bridge for many, especially when
you drive over them. It is easy to
visualize the bridge not being locked
securely, a car falling through a crack
and it and its passengers tumbling
into the Intracoastal Waterway. Lind
assured me that the bridge's locks
are very secure, and to do this, she
walked out to the pinnacle of the
bridge upon those unsettling grates.
The grates themselves have an
unnerving feeling to them when
walked upon that sends a chilling
tingle throughout your whole body.
Lind doesn't seem to mind the awk-
wardness as she glides over to the
locks.


Up, down, up, down
The bridge going up is an event in
the tender's day, as much of it is
spent waiting for that pivotal
moment. It is when Lind must be
completely alert and responsible for
everyone's safety. Many times peo-
ple run the red light that alerts peo-
ple that the bridge is about to go up,
and many people refuse to acknowl-
edge how dangerous this can be,
being in a hurry to cross the bridge.
If a driver runs the red light, it is pos-
sible that the offender will get hit by
the descending gate. This has hap-
pened on Lind's watch. A truck was
hit by the gate, and the driver stated


that the light wasn't red.
"The gate only goes down if the
light is red," said Lind.
That safeguard pretty much guar-
antees if a driver were to be hit by
the gate, it would be the responsibil-
ity of the driver.
From the bridge tender's booth,
the bridge going up is a sight to see,
which most people do not have
access to view. The bridge's magni-
tude can be realized when it is
raised. Standing outside the booth
when the bridge is raised is a feeling
similar to one standing at the edge

Recycled rubber walkway



now leads to Florida House


STAFF REPORT

The walk from the east park-
ing lot to the Florida House
Learning Center will
be easy on the environment
as well as 'the feet, thanks to
a new walkway made of
recycled rubber. KBI Industries
of Clearwater installed the
Flexi-Pave walkway Wed-
nesday, May 3. Attendees at the
installation and demonstration
included local government
and business lead-ers and rep-
resentatives of KBI affiliates
from Florida, New York,
Massachusetts and other areas.
The new 20-foot walkway
leads from the east parking lot
to the Florida House model
home. The walkway is made
of 21 recycled rubber tires,
mixed with aggregate and a


specially developed binding
agent with the same elastic
qualities as rubber. Like all
the other "green" building
materials demonstrated at
the Florida House, this paving
system's many environmen-
tal benefits include porosity,
allowing polluted run-off to
soak into the ground. An-
other principle of sustain-
ability is durability; the new
porous pavement is flexible
and resistant to cracking
caused by tree roots.
"Impervious paving sends
stormwater run-off into our
rivers and bays, so this prod-
uct addresses one of our most
significant environmental
challenges today --1 nonpoint
source pollution," said Betty
Alpaugh, program director for
the Learning Center." It's also


slip-resistant and comfortable
to walk on because of its excel-
lent impact absorption."
The Florida House Learn-
ing Center model home and
yard showcases energy and
water-saving products and
building materials as well as
Florida-friendly landscaping
methods. Operated by the
University of Florida/Institute
of Food and Agricultural
Sciences-Sarasota County Ex-
tension Service, the Florida
House Learning Center
teaches residents and visitors
about practical ways to live
more sustainably.
For more information,
contact the Sarasota County
Call Center at 861-5000 and
ask about the Florida House
Learning Center, or e-mail

SUZY COHEN, R.PH.
COLUMNIST


Q: What natural options do I
have for the urinary burning
associated with interstitial cysti-
tis? The drug Elmiron is not
helping me. C.C., North
Haledon, N.J.
A: You can try St. John's
wort, the centuries-old herb
traditionally used for depres-
sion. About 700,000 Amer-
icans, 90 percent of whom are
women, suffer with IC. The
intensity of symptoms vary
greatly and include pain,
burning and the constant
urge to urinate, even though
it trickles and you just went
five minutes ago!
If you've ever had a urinary
tract infection, you may
understand how it feels. Sym-
proms are minor for some,
maddening for others;
uncomfortable bladder pro-
cedures don't guarantee relief.
Last month, an interesting
thing happened. St. John's
wort was discussed at the
American Urological


Association's annual meeting.
Apparently, it can relieve pain
in people with hypersensitive
bladder disorders such as IC.
But this shouldn't come as
any great surprise, because
the same two brain chemicals
that ease depression and
relieve anxiety also happen to
control sensations below the
belt. Urologists sometimes:
order prescription anddepres-
sants for their IC patients, so
it makes sense that St. John's
wort could help.
And this is exactly what
researchers found when they
injected a formulation of St.
John's wort into rats that had
frequent bladder contrac-
tions, inflammation and
pain.
Here's something else
that's interesting. A Yale study
found that levels of nitric
oxide are much lower in
people with IC than in those
without it. In their study,
= which has not been repro-
duced, L-arginine,'an inex-'
pensive over-the-counter
* amino acid supplement,
helped ease the pain associ-
ated with IC.
Baking soda may tem-
porarily relieve IC symptoms
because it reduces the acidity
of urine. Baking soda isn't for
everyone, so please ask your
doctor first. People on salt-
restricted diets shouldn't
use it.
MSM is an over-the-
counter supplement that


may help in high enough
doses. Its parent compound,
DMSO, is often injected into
the bladder of IC sufferers.
Aloe vera is another supple-
ment, but choose quality
brands of this or you will
irritate yourself worse.
Acupuncture and biofeed-
back are also choices to try.
QUESTION: I caught a cold
while traveling in Canada and,
when I asked for Claritin, the
pharmacist sold me Reactine,
which came from her pharmacy.
It didn't look like Claritin but she
said it was. Is it the same thing?
- C.G., New York City
ANSWER: No, Reactine is
not Claritin. It's called Zyrtec
in the United States and sold
only by prescription here. In
foreign countries, pharma-
cists sell it OTC, but they
keep it behind the counter
and are allowed to sell it only
in small packages of 10
tablets each. I encountered a
similar situation while visit-
ing St. Maarten. A pharmacy
on the French side of the
island sold me Reactine
when I asked for Claritin.
While chemically differ-
ent, the two drugs (Claritin' b
and Zyrtec) work the same
way to clear up allergies, dry
a runny nose and ease itchy
eyes.
Did you know? The juice
pressed from fresh radish is
an old home remedy for
coughs, bronchitis and
diarrhea.

Help for uninsured women



who need medications


STAFF REPORT


Many American women
are in charge of their family's
routine health care. They
take their children to see the
doctor regularly, schedule
checkups for their husbands
and care for sick relatives.
Many women, however, put
themselves last and often
do not seek care simply
because they do not have
health insurance.
Without insurance, wom-
en often cannot get the' care
they need, making everyday
tasks more stressful. They
often wait to see the doctor
until their conditions have
grown worse and may be
more costly to treat. And
even more women do not
have insurance to help pay
for prescriptions, making it
more difficult to get medi-
cines that could help prevent
their conditions from getting
worse.
Not having insurance
should not get in the way of
good health for America's
mothers, wives, sisters and
daughters. Until quality
health care is available to all
Americans, there are pro-
grams to help uninsured
Americans get access to the
medicines prescribed by
their doctors.
One such program is
Pfizer Helpful Answers a


family of programs that helps
people without prescription
coverage save on many Pfizer
medicines, no matter their
age or income. People with
limited incomes may even
qualify to get their Pfizer
medicines for free.
Barbara Jean Salley, one of
Pfizer Helpful Answers' more
than 2 million members,
says that "Pfizer's program
has been a real blessing.
Since this program came
along, I am not as stressed
about how I'm going to get
my medicine and I feel bet-
ter." If you too are uninsured
and need a Pfizer medicine,
call Pfizer Helpful Answers'
toll-free number ([866] 706-
2400) or visit PfizerHelpful.
Answers. com.
It is also easy to find help
if you do not know who
makes your medicine, or if
you need help paying for



M. .


other name-brand or ge-
. neric medicines. Simply
visit PPARx.org or call (888)
4PPA-NOW to find out about
more than 475 programs,
including those from, Pfizer,
that can help people with-
out prescription coverage get
access to the medicines they
need.
Helping to manage your
family's health and well-
being is important, but so is
being able to take care of
your own health such as
taking the medicines you
need. Programs like Pfizer
Helpful Answers can help
bring medicines within
reach for women who are
used to putting their family's
needs first. American wom-
en work hard to keep their
families healthy. Now there
are programs to help keep
America's women healthy,
too.

"Wordplay" is an eight-
letter word for pure fun, a
light, breezy documentary
that introduces us to a genial
gang of crossword puzzle fans
whose passion for the pas-
time is gleefully infectious.
Partly focused on a nation-
al crossword competition,
director Patrick Creadon's
film has all the thrill-of-
victory moments of such
recent documentary hits as.
"Spellbound,", "Nlurderball"
and "Mad Hot Ballroom."
"Wordplay" also offers a
marvelous lineup of celebrity
enthusiasts, including former
President Clinton, "The Daily
Show" host Jon Stewart,
filmmaker Ken Burns, New
York Yankees pitcher Mike
Mussina and the Indigo Girls.

Shortz, editor of The New
York Times crossword puzzle
and star of the puzzle-master
segment that airs Sunday
mornings on NPR.
The film tracks Shortz's
lifelong interest in puzzles
and brain teasers, including
his college years, when he
designed his own curriculum
at Indiana University and
earned a degree in "enigma-
tology."
Creadon and his wife,
producer Christine O'Malley,

power generally upfront and
the drama of the crossword
competition held in reserve
for the end.
By the time you see

ates outward for a warm,
witty look at the rank-and-
file of the world of cross-
word puzzles.
Shortz's band of puzzle
creators offer lively glimpses
into how they go about craft-
ing a crossword. Competitors
at Shortz's annual American
Crossword Puzzle Tourna-
ment in' Stamford, Conn.,
reflect on how they became
engrossed.
The contest itself is a
nail-biter, with competitors
plotting strategy and racing ;
die clock to'finish.
It may not sound like a,
great spectator sport, watch-
ing people tear through
clues and scribble down
answers. But "Wordplay"
spotlights an agonizing turn
in the championship round
where de-feat displaces cer-
tain victory for one player,
the moment as painful as


seeing your team's star center
bounce a three-point jump
shot that would have won
the game off the rim at the
buzzer.
What's most striking
about the tournament play-
ers "Wordplay" features is
their camaraderie. They've
become friends as well as
opponents, forming a com-
munity out of what most of
us consider a solitary pas-
time.
Most of us also would con-
sider crosswords ' ..s Iight
thing ir ourliKes. Yet Clinton
discusses how doing the,
Sunday Times crossword was
a diversion that gave him a-
needed break from pressing
matters in the White House.
If a crossword puzzle can
help a president think more
clearly in a crisis, maybe
Shortz should get his own
Cabinet post.

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

Gore with his boxing gloves back
on, "An Inconvenient Truth" aims to
raise awareness of Gore's fight
against the "climate crisis." Since
his fall from grace in 2000, Gore
has been circling the planet with a
potent PowerPoint presentation,
warning that unless changes are
made, we could be toast in only ten
years time. Essentially a cinematic
version of the presentation with
the occasional sidebar ferreting out
Gore's motivations the film's les-
son makes it a must-see, but wit-
nessing the man who was a hair
away from the presidency toting
around his own luggage is a bonus.

HOROSCOPE June 23-29


Companion
Director Robert Altman and
writer Garrison Keillor join forces
with an all-star cast to create this
backstage fable about a fictitious
radio variety show that has man-


ARIES (March 21-April
19). Everyone thinks
you're funny, but be
honest are you masking fear
or pain with humor? This is a
good day to take an honest
look into your heart to check
in with your feelings.

l TAURUS (April 20-May
20). Your tastes sim-
ple the best of
everything. So when loved
ones say they don't know how
to please you, it's really that
they're afraid of disappointing
you. Be gentle and provide
clues.

^ GEMINI (May 21-June
21). You're still resist-
ing the notion of tak-
ing better care of yourself -
silly Gemini! Selfishness isn't
always a negative. You'll have
so much more to give once
you return to a centered,
relaxed, healthy state.

CANCER (June 22-July
22). Being strong is
your "thing." The stars
send even more emotionally
strapping individuals to help
you carry your load. Dare to
give up some baggage.
Weakness has its charms, too.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
Aim ridiculously high.
While striving to
supernatural heights, you
might only land on the level of
"great," which has rich rewards.
But if you were to aim for
"great," you might only land
on "adequate" far less
rewarding.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22). You're in control,
and its a good thing,
because you're the only one
who knows what's going on.
Stopping to train others takes
too much time, so you're a
solo act until the job gets
done.

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

/ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). Reading and
music are good for
your soul. The more you
learn, the more interesting
tonight's date will be. If you
don't have a date for tonight,
make one you'll have a
fantastic time.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-

without a sense of
humor is like a car without
shock absorbers every
bump in the road causes a jolt.
Yours will be a smooth ride
with lots of laughter.

'-i. goose who lays gold-
en eggs now, and many
people would love to steal
you away. Beware of people.
who are only interested in
what you can do for them.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). The stars
suggest you'll be
swept into the romance of
wanting. You're probably not
even sure what exactly it is
you want, but you want it
passionately.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-

capture your
moments of loveliness.
However, don't spoil
something gorgeous
by trying to make it last
forever. Beauty is a temporary
state. That s what makes it
beautiful.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March

can do to prove to
yourself that you don't need

to the test when 02 is suddenly

is forced to go back outside the

Safety awareness pays ff in a storm


STAFF REPORT
You can protect yourself
.and your family in the event
of the hurricanes, tornadoes,
floods and lightning storms
that kill and injure thousands
every year if you're knowl-
edgeable about electrical
safety during and after weath-
er disasters.
"After severe weather is
gone, electrical hazards can
still cause deaths and in-
juries," noted Brett Brenner,
The Electrical Safety Foun-
dation International (ESFI)


president. ESFI warns con-
sumers to beware of electrical
dangers associated with
downed power lines, portable
electric generators and elec-
trical wiring or appliances
that have been wet. These
precautions can help:
* Use care when stepping into
flooded areas whether
indoors or out. Submerged
outlets, electrical cords, and
downed power lines can en-
ergize water, posing a lethal
trap.
* Stay away from downed
power lines and anything


touching them.
* If you see someone who is in
contact with a downed power
line, do not touch the person.
You could become the next
victim. Call 911.
* Have electricians install
portable electric generators
to ensure they meet local
electrical codes and are prop-
erly grounded. Improperly in-
stalled generators can "back-
feed" along power lines and
electrocute crews working to
restore power.
* Keep the generator dry. Do
not operate it in enclosed or


partially enclosed areas. Gen-
erators produce deadly car-
bon monoxide.
* Do not overload a generator;
follow the manufacturer's
instructions carefully.
* Use a ground fault circuit
interrupter (GFCI) to help
prevent electrocutions.
* Do not use electrical wiring
or equipment that has been
wet. Contact a qualified ser-
vice repair dealer to recondi-
tion electrical equipment.
Visit electrical-safety.org or
call (703) 841-3229 for more
information.

They call him Hurricane Bob


IELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST

Four hurricane prepared-
ness guides havebeen deliv-
ered to my home so far this
month. I kept the guide from
WWSB Channel 7 with Bob
Harrigan, chief meteorolo-
gist, on its cover because I
knew he was going to speak at
our June meeting of the South
Venice Civic Association.
And what a dynamic
speaker Hurricane Bob is! He
certainly made the subject
come to life with humor and
seriousness on what we need
to know during hurricane
season. Here are a few of his
tips:
All media get their hurri-
cane information from the
same source, the National
Hurricane Center, at the same
time five days before an actu-
al storm. National TV chan-
nels "pump up" the drama of
an impending storm because
it brings in more advertising,
dollars. Stay with your local
weather channels because
they have the information
you need to know close to
home. And have that portable
radio operational.
Forget the "spaghetti" or
black line forecasts of where a
hurricane is going to make
landfall. No one really knows
with certainty until the last


five or six hours, so track
everything within the wide
cone area.
Designate one friend from
out of state to be your contact
person to the rest of your
family. This leaves the tele-
phone lines clear for neces-
sary emergency calls after a
storm. Cell phones won't
work, so go find a dial-up
telephone to plug in.
Know your evacuation
zone. In South Venice along
the coastline, we are in Zone
2, which means when we are
ordered to evacuate, GO!
Deaths and injuries are
caused by the 20 percent of
people who decided to stay at
home when ordered to leave.
Most of the damage will be
from flooding, not wind.
Know the safe room in
your house. That's the one
with no windows. If you
board up your windows, do
all of them, not just those fac-
ing the Gulf of Mexico. Shut-
ters are the best but-plywood
will do, too.
Secure your front door and
your garage door particularly.
Once the wind gets in the
house and finds an outlet, the
damage will be more severe.
In your hurricane kit,. be
sure you have your insurance
papers, not just the phone
number of your insurance
agent.
a Be sure you store plenty of
water, bottled for drinking
and the bathtub for flushing
toilets. Don't forget mosquito
repellent.
After "Hurricane Bob"
spoke so clearly and had us all
excited, I decided to actually
read and obey the instruc-
tions in those guides. I hope
you will, too.

Members of the Lemon. Bay Crew Club help new rowers into a scull. The club held a National Learn to Row Day on Lemon Bay
near Michael Saunders Realty off State Road 776.


Local residents take part in national rowing day


BY RYAN BOYD
STAFF WRITER


Nita Edmondson-Cole
stood in the wet grass on the
edge of Lemon Bay Saturday
morning with a huge smile.
About two months ago,
Edmondson-Cole realized
that's a 50-something grand-
mother, it \\ouJd be wise to
increase the intensity of her
exercise regimen.
Her original workout
schedule called for cycling a
couple of miles a week. That
was fine, but she felt like she
needed more. So she joined
the Lemon Bay Crew Club, a
local rowing club.
Rowing was something she
had no clue how to do.
"My first thought was how

fast was I going to get out of


these shoes when (the boat)
turns over," said Edmondson-
Cole, 53.
Edmondson-Cole has
since learned how to maneu-
ver if her boat flips over, and
recently she got some added
practice.,
June 10, National Learn to
Row Day, an event was held
by the Lemon Bay Crew Club
on the banks of Lemon Bay.
Close to 30 Englewood res-
idents and club members hit
the calm waters in 60-foot
rowing vessels, called sculls,,
to practice the sport, said
Gloria Koss, president of the
crew club.
"This event is good be-
cause it is getting the com-
munity involved and anyone
can do it," Koss said.
The event was sponsored

by Concept 2, a company that

chines, and the USA Rowing
Association, Koss said.
Clubbing it
The crew club, which was
established in 2002, is made
up of 40 Englewood residents,
from young people to senior
citizens ,"whok are rowing
enthusiasts, a club member
said.
A row boat seats nine peo-
ple eight rowers and a cox-
swain, otherwise known as
the captain, who yells out
directions.
Blair Milliken, youth coach
for the crew club, said com-
munication and rhythm are
the two main components a
crew must have in order to be
successful.


"Team work is crucial,"'
Milliken said. "You have eight
independent oars, rowing
paddles, that have to come in
and out of the water together;
it's a dance synchronized
rowing."
When Edmondson-Cole
began to row a couple of
months ago, she felt the ill
effects from :the sport's
intense workout, which she
said fueled her to engage in
rowing even more.
"My back was sore in the
beginning," said Edmond-
son-Cole, who introduced
her granddaughter and niece
to the sport at the event. "But
I love it because it gives you a
total workout, and you start
to strive for perfection."

This afternoon I will be
Cliff Roles' guest on his "Talk
of the Suncoast" radio, show
on 1220 AM, WIBQ, in Sara-
sota. We will be talking about
"Venice History Illustrated," a
book I recently finished writ-
ing to showcase the wonder-
ful series of watercolors creat-
ed by the late Ilse Kern during
her years in Venice. Kern was
an extremely talented artist
and an ardent support of sev-


eral arts and historical groups
in the area, served on the
board of the Sarasota Opera,.
and was a true friend of this
area. The book is at the print-
ers and is expected to be
released later this summer or
in early fall. Be sure to tune in
and to call in to the show. I am
taking along some copies of
my other books to give to
callers.
Next Tuesday, June 27,
Roles' guest will be Jerry Finn,
the founding executive direc-
tor of the Banyan Theater

of the Grand Canyon or atop
of a tall building. Falling is
possible, as there cannot be
any protective rails, so only
the bridge tenders have ac-
cess to this part of the bridge
when it is raised.
Lind said that normal
bridge functions aren't always
so smooth as simply going up
or down. In fact, Lind's main
problem on the bridge isn't
mechanical at all.

BRIDGE-RASING-TIMFES
:d itheWeekdiysetie bri dg'&

utes ftr the hlur whenb.

"Pigeons sometimes get
caught in the gears and stop
the bridge," Lind said with
annoyance in her tone. "I just
go out there with a broom
and knock them out. Some-
times, I can't get to them be-
cause the pigeon poop makes
it too slippery," she said, say-
ing in that case she has to call
maintenance.
Underneath the bridge
tender's booth is the engine,
room. It is noisy, hot and
sounds like the engine room
on the Starship Enterprise. To
access the engine room, a
heavy metal grate must be
raised and a vertical flight of
stairs takes you straight down.
It looks similar to something
in a movie about a subma-
rine. Lind doesn't seem to
have any trouble at all and
doesn't even use both hands
as she descends.
Under the bridge at night-
At night, being on the
bridge is completely different.
In addition to visibility being
very low, about 10 feet in front
of you, the bridge has a differ-
ent feel. Because there is less
traffic, the vibration is much
less, and the scariness is no
longer present. The booth


itself becomes more like an
apartment at night than dur-
ing the day. The chairs look
more cozy, and the TV is like a
close friend that will keep you
company during the long,
slow hours waiting for the sun
to come up. The lights on the
bridge are evenly spread out,
giving only a few more feet of
visibility. This is why the
bridge tenders have to rely on
the boats to call them at all
times when they pass.
When the bridge goes up at
night, it looks like a large car-
nival ride in motion. But of
course, day or night, the
bridge is no ride, Lind would
adamantly say. But Lind does
everything within her power
to make sure motorists dri-
ving over the Venice Avenue
bridge are safe.
The woman who
moves bridges
"Mr. Lind died 16 years
ago, and I found myself need-
ing a job," Lind said, recalling
how she got started in this
business.
With all the jobs available
at the time requiring her to
know how to use computers,
Lind found herself at a loss.
Then she saw an ad in the
paper calling for bridge ten-
ders.
"I can do that," Lind re-
membered saying.
"You have to go through a
lot of training," Lind said.
But the bridge tending
requires far more than just
the 40 hours of training Lind
got at the start of her career as
a tender.
"I was fortunate that I had
a good trainer," Lind said.
Lind herself is perhaps one
of the most active citizens in
the city of Venice. Whether
she is swinging from the steel
stairwell or leaning over the
bridge knocking pigeons out
of the gears of the bridge,
Lind seems to have found the
fountain of youth. When
asked what the secret of her
vitality is, Lind, at first, dodg-
ed the question.
"I could tell you but you


At night, the Venice Avenue Bridge is dark and foreboding.


couldn't print it!" she said,,
laughing.
Later, in the privacy of a
phone interview, Lind told me
the true secret of her exuber-
ance.
"I had to think about the
answer to your question,"
Lind said.
. During the night time visit,
Lind said she loves to dance,
even though she hasn't done
it publicly in a long time. But
on the phone, Lind added to


her answer.
"Every day, when I get
home from work, I put on a
CD of my music and listen.
Sometimes I dance. I love lis-


tening to my music. I just feel
it. There are some things in
the world that I don't want to
see, but I always want to hear
my music."

3Y REV. SUSANNE NAZIAN AND
)R. STANLEYJ. NAZIAN
RELIGION COLUMNISTS

Al Davis died last month.
.-Ie was 68 years old. Until he
became ill he looked like a
movie star tall and hand-
some, well built and physical-
ly fit. He never drank too
much; he ate healthy foods,
and never smoked a cigarette.
He was a faithful and loving
husband, a loving father, an
intensely ethical man, suc-
cessful in business. He served
his country in the Navy and
was a leader in his church. He
died of lung cancer.
His family asked that in
lieu of flowers, contributions
be sent to Moffitt Cancer and
Research Center where he
had been treated. They asked
that in his memory, his
friends support stem cell
research as it searches for a
cure.
You may argue with me
that looking for prevention is,
better than a cure. But there
were no predictors that we
currently know that would
ever have indicated this man
would present with stage-
three lung cancer. He had no
symptoms lung cancer sur-
prises people that way. Early
detection is rare. It is a vicious
disease. So are other cancers,
as well as diseases like dia-
betes, cardiovascular disease,/
autoimmune disease, aller-


gies, spinal bifida, Alzheim-
er's, Parkinson's and Lou
Gehrig's disease. All of these
are diagnoses that might be
helped or cured through stem
cell research.
What exactly are stem cells
anyway? Simply put, a stem
cell can develop into another
type of cell. One could say
that a fertilized egg is the ulti-
mate stem cell, since from it
develops muscle cells, heart
cells, brain cells, kidney cells
and all the other highly spe-
cialized cells in the body.
Many of the individual cells of
the developing embryo retain
this ability for a short period.
These are called the toti-
potent stem cells because, in
theory, they can develop into
any cell in the body. Embryos
produced as a result of in vitro
fertilization are the source of
embryonic stem cells.
Are there any other sources
of stem cells? Many organs in
the body retain a tiny pool of
stem cells specific to that
organ. Typically when a stem
cell divides one of the result-
ing cells remains a stem cell
while the other starts down
the road to becoming another
more specialized cell. The
body uses these to help repair
damage to specific organs by
developing into new muscle
cells, liver cells, etc. These
adult stem cells have been
found in the brain, bone mar-,
row, blood vessels, liver and


skin. Typically adult stem cells
can develop into only one
highly specialized cell. Sci-
entists have been doing
research with adult stem cells
and even using them to treat
human disease for decades.
Bone marrow transplants are
just sten cell transplants by
another oame.
In the 1990s it was discov-
ered that transplantation of
cells isolated from umbilical
cord blo d could, under the
right circumstances, be used
to treat leukemia. Recent
work has suggested, although
not proven, that these umbil-
ical corLd blood cells can
develop nto cells other than
blood cells they are "pluri-
poterit" tem cells.
Many people tell us they
have a blanket opposition to
stem cell use in research and
treatment of illnesses. No ifs,
ands or huts, they are against
it. Yet, thereare stem cells that
can be obtained from adults
and stem cells that can be
harvested from the umbilical
cord after a child has been
born and the cord cut. There
is no moral ground to oppose
the use Of these types of cells.
Then there are embryonic
stem cells, the ones that lie at
the center of the controversy.
The problem is that stem cells
obtained from adults and
from umbilical cords are not

Building from the heart of Unity


BYJEAN RUSSELL
GUEST WRITER


The Unity Church of Ven-
ice has embarked on a build-
ing program. Thanks to a very
generous gift of $500,000
)from Esther Little, the church
ihas the foundation for their
building program. Rev. Pa-
tricia Reiter introduced the
congregation to the Enrich-
ment Giving Program. The
program builds community
-and raises consciousness. The
energy created by this pro-


gram grew membership and
increased meaningful in-
volvement.
This program is built on a
team structure. This is inten-.
tional and important. Work-
ing as teams, the program
makes the task easier and
manageable. It engages many
people and produces a lot of
energy. All volunteers are
honored for their efforts
regardless of how small.
W-\en the program started
in October many of us were
wondering what some of the


activities had to do .with
building a new sanctuary and
improving our existing build-
ings. No one was talking to us
about money. The minister
started the team building
with the Executive Team.
They provide the leadership.
The church community was
invited and urged to be a
member of a team. The
human connections offered
through the team structure
built community. As time

as likely to experience neck tension as adults. The
women with the greatest endurance strength as
teenagers were 34 percent less likely to have neck
tension than women with less endurance strength as
teenagers. Physical activity, in teen years, also
appeared to cut the risk of lower back pain in men.

Waterway Trail, which passes the com-


plex and ducks under the
Hatchett Creek Bridge to the
trail's end near the building,
which formerly housed the
Venice Area Chamber of '
Commerce. Because of the
waterway underpass, one can -
walk to downtown Venice
without having to cross the
Tamiami Trail.
Each building has covered
parking on the first level.
The monthly condo fee
includes cable TV elevator,
service, exterior painting,
landscaping, lawn care, rec-
reational facilities, trash The Intracoast
removal and the usual ser- at the back of
vices. The building is man-
aged by the Waterford Real Estate Service, an
arm of the Waterford companies, which has
been building in Venice for several decades.
A third building is under construction to
complete the complex.
Unit 701 has been listed at $949,000.
