South County development coming fast


West Villages, ,
Tuscano and other
projects will bring
population boom to
an area whose growth
is already off the
charts.


STAFF.REPORT

Drive down River Road
or Tamiami Trail and you'll
inevitably see large chunks
of land being cleared for
development.
Signs for neighborhoods
yet to be built line both
thoroughfares where South
County ranches once
sprawled and wild cattle
foraged among the palmet-
tos and pines. Now graders
and excavators roam the
range installing stormwater
pipes and winding streets.
The prospect for the im-
mediate future is one of
wonder at how much
Southwest Florida will
change as the cattle are
quickly replaced by people
in the next few years.-
The latest development
to pop up is Gran Paradiso.
It's on the northeast side of
U.S. 41, across from Island
Walk and next to the Plan-
tation Golf & Country Club.
IslandWalk is the first phase
of the 1 1,600-acre West
Villages development. Gran
Paradise is the second
phase.
Michael Van Beck is vice
president of sales and mar-
keting for Sam Rodgers
Homes & Neighborhoods.
His firm had planned a
groundbreaking ceremony
June 13 to mark the start of
the construction of homes
on Gran Paradiso's 1,680
acres. The ceremony was
canceled because of the
weather. The development,
though, is a go.
The 1,999-home com-
munity will include single-

Construction workers doing excavation work in Gran Paradiso are among those enjoying
the housing boom in South Sarasota County. But some leaders say residents, of estab-
lished neighborhoods may not be so happy with the changes they'll notice in the near
future.


Stoneybrook at Venice, which is now being built at Venice
Avenue and River Road, will add about 700 single-family
homes and cause an additional increase in traffic with


other future developments.

family homes, paired villas,
condominiums and even-
tually multifamily units, all
in Northern Italian-Tus-
cany design. Between Sam
Rodgers and Lee Wether-
ington Homes, there will be
three distinct neighbor-
hood types. Homes will cost
between $300,000 and


more than $1 million.
Van Beck said he expects
Gran Paradiso will be built
out in about 10 years, even
with the recent slowdown
in the housing market.
"If the market had stayed
the way it was, we might
have expected being sold
out within six or seven


years," he said.
Van Beck said buyers
demand amenities like ten-
nis courts, pools and work-
out rooms. They'll also
need roads, waterlines,
sewer lines, storm drains
and other infrastructure,
which is what workers are
installing now.
-Going west
In all, West Villages in-
cludes 8,000 acres within
the boundaries of North
Port on either side of U.S. 41
and River Road almost
all of it fQrmer ranchland. In
place of the cattle will be
15,000 homes for more
than 30,000 people.
Another 3,600 acres was
recently added and sits
within unincorporated
Sarasota County running as
far south as the Englewood
Sports Complex and west to
the Tuscano development
on U.S. 41. That means
another 10,000 homes for


more than 20,000 people.
As big as West Villages is,
it. is only one, of several
other projects, large and
small, that are already plan-
ned for the South County.
They include:
Tuscano, on about
2,500 acres, with about
1,600 homes between U.S.
41 and East Manasota
Beach Road. It will be adja-
cent to theVenetia commu-
nity and include a 27-hole
golf course, a clubhouse
and an 11.9-acre park.
Stoneybrook at Venice,
now being built at Venice
Avenue and River Road.
Lannar Homes plans about
700 single-family homes by
the time it's completed.
Blackburn, which has
1,400 homes planned to be
built near River and Center
roads.
The Woodlands, built
by Neal and Benderson
Development and planned
for 2,596 homes in North
Port.
Isles of Athena, which
will have 15,000 homes on
5,700 acres in the northeast
portion of North Port.
Other projects already
approved along U.S. 41,
River Road and State Road
776 add another 2,500
homes to the South County
in the next few years.
Adding them up
Add the approximately
2,000 single-family home
permits North Port ap-
proves each year, and an-
other 1,500 or so the county
approves for South County,
and the numbers add up to
more than 100,000 new
part- and full-time resi-
dents moving to the area in
the next 10 years. None of
this includes what is being
planned and built in
Charlotte and DeSoto
counties in the same time
span.

Thieves

hitting

regions

graveyards

BY RYAN BOYD
STAFF WRITER

With the price of metal ris-
ing in recent years, crooks
have discovered a clever new
way to make a buck: They're
stealing from people who
can't fight back.
It's an awful, disrespectful
and some might say sacrile-
gious act: swiping vases off
graves at cemeteries.
From Tampa to Fort Myers,
police report, cemeteries
have been reporting the theft
of flower pots since the begin-
ning of the year. The rising
cost of metal is driving the
trend in graveyard robberies,
authorities said.
Last weekend, more than
400 vases were stolen from a
cemetery in Tampa. Another
40 were taken from a Fort
Myers graveyard.
Memorial parks in Eng-
lewood and Sarasota experi-
enced robberies earlier in the
year, when more than 1,000
vases were stolen from two
area cemeteries.
Back in order
In January, Gulf Pines
Memorial Park on Englewood
Road was hit for 58 vases. A
few days later, the Sarasota
, Memorial Park on U.S. 41 was
robbed of roughly 1,000 \asee,
officials from both cemeteries
said.
"The families are the ones
suffering for this," said Sara-
sota Memorial Park manager
Diane Hillard. "This is holy
ground for them."
Gulf Pines owner Mike
Uselton said he immediately
informed the families of his
business's intention to re-
place the vases, which often
cost more than $100.
"It was a temporary incon-
venience that we assured the
families we would rectify," he
said. "It was an isolated inci-
dent, and we got them back in
order."
No one has been arrested
in the thefts at Gulf Pines,
authorities said.
In the case of Sarasota
Memorial Park, Jerry M.
McMullen, 24, a former main-
tenance worker at the ceme-
tery, was arrested in mid-
February and charged with
grand theft for reportedly tak-
ing roughly 1,000 flower vases
and an undetermined
amount of metal grave mark-
ers and lawn equipment. Mc-
Mullen later admitted stealing
the items, a police report stat-
ed.
Hillard said it'll cost the
cemetery an estimated
$100,000 to replace all of the
material taken.
"We feel horrible for these
families," Hillard said. "We sat
here for two days and cried.
Why are metal yards accept-
ing these vases?"
Escalating value
The answer, in short, is the
high price of scrap metal.
An average bronze flower
vase is priced at $150, Uselton
said.
With the explosive new
home market and the in-
creased exportation of metal,
the value of scrap metal has

Pollution study will lead to improved water quality


Crazy weather.
That's what people say. And
it seems to get crazier with
each passing year. This past
week, there was a tornado in
Port Charlotte. First time in 15
years.
What's going on?
Two things, above all. There
are more people in, harm's
way; we have better news
reporting.
The world's history is full of
violent weather events. We
just weren't around to watch
them live on TY. And we
haven't always crowded into
known danger zones. We do
now. We live in one. Because of
that, we must plan for the con-
sequences of crazy weather.

Staub: Fu~ture growth'should be the right


STAFF REPORT

The Sun papers asked
Sarasota County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub 10
questions about the growth
coming to South County.
Staub represents District 3,
which includes the city of
North Port, the portion of
Englewood that is in Sarasota
County and the Venice area
up to Center Road:
First, let me say that South
County is defined several dif-
ferent ways according to geo-
graphic area. Some define it
as Osprey south to Charlotte
County line; some define it
south of Nokomis to
Charlotte County line; some
Venice area south to Char-
lotte County line. For purpos-
es of my answers, I am using
Venice (including city of
Venice) south to Charlotte
County line including city of
North Port and Englewood.
1. How do you see South
County in 10 years?
I see South County has
being a greater diversity in
ages, race and ethnic groups.
Although baby boomers will
retire here,. families and a
younger work force will live
and work in the area.
The city of Venice on the
island may look a little more
urbanized, as will North
Venice in the Laurel Road
area.
U.S. 41 will have some
makeovers with redevelop-
ment of commercial areas.
State Road 776 will have a lit-
tle more residential and office
uses and a smattering of
commercial both new and
redeveloped areas.
The Englewood Business
District will maintain a char-
acter of a fishing village, but
will have many new struc-
tures, that compliment the
fishing village theme. Re-
development of areas sur-
rounding the business district
will also take place.
There will be more
employment centers in the
South County area.comprised
of office and light technology
industry. The city of North
Port will have more larger
subdivisions, commercial
and office and redevelop-
ment of older commercial
and residential areas. Thomas
Ranch, aka West Villages
District, will incorporate
aspects of new urbanism and
create a "mini-town."
The South County area will
continue to have a lot of
green space, protected lands,
healthy beaches and water
bodies like the Myakka River
and Lemon Bay. There will be
a viable and growing arts and
culture community along
with innovative places like
the Englewood Environ-
mental Learning Center.
2. How do you think the
growth will effect the people
of South County?
Some residents will love
the diversity of the popula-
tion, the additional shopping
venues, availability of good
jobs resulting from new
employment areas, opportu-
nities for recreation and cul-
tural activities. Some resi-
dents will not be pleased with
the changes, which will be
relatively minor, compared
with most other coun-
ties/cities in the state and
may choose to return to their
homestate or to move east for
a semi-rural lifestyle.
3. What are you doing to
address the change in South
County?

7. How will the growth in
South County affect the
building of the Englewood
Interstate C pnnector?
The EIC .as been divided
into two ph, ses: From U.S. 41
to 1-75 being the first phase,
and U.S. 41 to Winchester
being the second phase.
Growth alone will not build
either phase. A combination
of impact fees from develop-
ment along with gas taxes,
and other, such revenue
sources will be used.
, Phase one will probably be'
done in "chunks" where the
right of way is secured and
stormwater facilities can be
built. The road is usually the
easy part. Getting right of
way, land i for stormwater


ponds and finding the funds
are the hardest parts of a road
project.
Growth of the Thomas
Ranch/West Villages District
should contribute funding for
the southern phase.
When River Road either
north or south runs out of
capacity, growth should not
be allowed to proceed until
the road is rebuilt and
widened.
8. What are the top three
issues facing South County?
1. How to allow for some
moderate growth that incor-
porates sustainability and
affordable housing, but still
maintain the things that
make our area special and
unique.
2. How to encourage and
actually succeed in develop-
ing employment centers ot-
her than retail areas.
3. How we can harness the
experience and expertise of
many of the retirees in our
area and have them work in
either private, public or vol-
untary roles to help build a
better community.
9. What drawbacks do you
expect with the rapid growth
of South County?.
Historically, the county
planned for development of
North County and then for
South County. The time has
come, as planned for dec-
ades, for South County to
develop. So we are now see-
ing land that has sat vacant
and open but is now develop-
ing. The challenge is to allow
for some development but
not get behind in any infra-

structure (roads, water, li-
braries, parks) and to have
the resulting development to
be what is needed and want-
ed like affordable housing,
more parks and open space,
good jobs and businesses, to
name just a few things.
10. How are North Port
and Sarasota County going
to work through the growth
process of South County?
The county has been
encouraging the city to enter
into joint planning. Both
jurisdictions should know
what the impact of growth in
the county or in the city will
be. Residents aren't con-
cerned with whose jurisdic-
tion a road is in, they just
want it to travel safely and
smoothly. They don't care
where the water they drink
comes from, they just want to
be assured there will be water
when the spigot is turned on.
So the two governments need
to work together to plan for
roads, water and other resi-
dent needs like parks,
libraries and natural resource
preservation.
The good news is that the
county and the city are work-
ing together for planning and
maintenance of parks, and
for the future sources' of
water. We haven't yet worked
on roadway networks, li-
braries or preservation of
land issues but I am hopeful
we will.
If both of us, county and
city, could look at the bigger
picture for land use planning,
I think our residents would
have more confidence if us.

County named Tree City
In recognition of its Urban Forestry Division's programs
and projects, Sarasota County was named the 2005
Florida Tree City of the Year, the top award presented at
the statewide Trees Florida conference recently held in
Fort Myers.
The award was presented to Urban Forestry Manager
Demetra 'McBride, who is attending the four-day
conference that ends Tuesday. The conference and
awards program are co-sponsored by the Florida Chapter
International Society of Arboriculture, the Florida Urban
Forestry Council, the Florida Division -of Forestry and the
University of Florida Extension.
"It is an exceptional distinction just to be 'nominated,"
McBride said. "But, remember, we accept this award not
simply in recognition of the Urban Forestry Division but
also county Administration, the Sarasota Board of County'
Commissioners and, most importantly, a community that
values its urban forest as an essential quality-of-life
element. This honor belongs to all of us."
The Urban Forestry Division of Public Works was
particularly recognized for its community programs,
including the street tree, canopy road and neighborhood
tree programs; an expanded initiative for progressive
street and sidewalk design with treescapes; and its recent
educational outreach efforts, which include teacher
workshops, community presentations, a daylong Arbor
Day/Careers in Sciences celebration in April at Pine View
School and its new Web site, www.scgov.net/forestry. The
division 'manages about 54,000 trees.

Trash Dude spouts kids' phrases
More than 900 local school students competed in a
county-wide competition to find phrases for Keep Sarasota
County Beautiful's new Trash Dude talking trash cans.
Each Trash Dude now has a unique personality, speaking
one of six different winning phrases. Amanda Kempf, a
fifth-grade student at Garden Elementary provided one
of those phrases, "Yo Dude, I'm happy you put the trash
in the can." Fourth-grader Dylan Walburn of Fruitville
Elementary won with, "Can we keep our campus clean?
Yes, we can!"
Additional winners and phrases were:
* "Throw it in the can, man!" submitted by Shelby Katelyn
Yoder, 4th grade, Brentwood Elementary.
* "Can we keep Sarasota clean? Yes we can, Dude!"
submitted by Rachel Moore, 4th grade, Bay Haven
Elementary.
* "Do your thing, you can keep your environment clean,"
submitted by James Love Inelus, 4th grade, Cranberry
'Elementary.
* "Hey, Dude, you can keep on keeping it clean," submitted
by Gabriela Landivar, 5th grade, Cranberry Elementary.
Trash Dude units cost about $1,500 each. KSCB
supplied the first units through a grant from the Florida
Department of Transportation. KSCB is soliciting
sponsorship for the cans to be placed at other schools
throughout the county. Interested businesses and
organizations may contact Keep Sarasota County
Beautiful at 941-861-5000.

increased significantly, said
one area scrap metal trader.
According to the dealer,
who asked not to be named,
30 years ago metal sold for 35
cents a pound. Nowadays,
some types of metal are sell-
ing for more than $3 a pound,
with bronze selling for $1.80
per pound..
With bronze vases weigh-
ing close to 6 pounds, thieves
are making a small fortune,
the dealer said.

More lighting
To combat the threat,
authorities are encouraging
cemetery owners to add more
lighting.
"This is an unusual theft,"
said Chuck Lesaltato, spokes-
man for Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office.
"Lighting would help. It's
really tough to secure these
things. The fact that this is a
cemetery, and someone dis-

covered that these vases are

esting."
Lesaltato said anyone who
sees someone around ceme-
teries after hours is encour-
aged to call the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office.

Families upset
To the families of those
buried in the cemeteries, the
robberies have a more emo-
tional impact.
Susan Jennings' father,
William Patterson, died five
years ago and is buried in
Sarasota Memorial Park. Be-
cause of the lack of lawn sup-
plies, the memorial park
couldn't sufficiently manicure
its grounds.
The site was deteriorating,
she said, and that's something
that has Jennings steaming.
"My parents paid on these
plots years ago so that they
could have a final resting
place," Jennings said.
"I'm not going to stand in
weeds. It's not fair. I'm very
angry and very upset. How
could somebody disrespect
the dead?"

ning Director Sam Jones said
the city's population could
reach 240,000 by the time the
city reaches buildout in 10 to
25 years.
"If the city has an ex-
tremely rapid rate of growth,
we will reach buildout by
2015," Jones said. "At a
midrange rate of growth, we'd
reach it by 2020, and by 2030
at an extremely slow growth
rate."
By the year 2019, North
Port's population is projected

OUR VIEW




Candidates, let's hear your education plans


here is no silver lining in news last week ,
that Florida's high school graduation
rates improved from 49th to 47th place
in national rankings released by Education
Week magazine.
The idea that a state as rich as ours can
only graduate 57.5 percent of its students is
shameful.
The rate did not change significantly from
the 57 percent reported the previous year
when Florida ranked next-to-last. We are well
below the national average of 69.6 percent -
which is nothing to brag about either.
The poor graduation rate is just another
black eye for Florida following our disap-
pointing performance under federal No
Child Left Behind guidelines, where only 28
percent of our schools made adequate yearly
progress in 2006 down from 36 percent in
2005.


If nothing else, the double dose of bad
news should give gubernatorial candidates
plenty of talking points as they travel the
state looking for votes.
Republican candidate Charlie Crist, a
savvy politician, has been quick to come out
with his plan to improve education in the
state. Among his ideas is to improve teachers'
pay (something Gov. Jeb Bush did this past
year) but to base it on teacher performance.
Crist also called for a focus on account-
ability and "transparency in funding." We're
not sure what Crist has in mind there, or how
that will work, but we're confident he will
explain over the next few months.
We are no smarter than the people who
oversee the state's education program now.
But it is obvious there are some key factors
that are a drag on any progress being made.
Somehow we must come to grips with the


difference between state and federal guide-
lines. The No Child Left Behind program and
Bush's A-Plus program are like two bulls
butting heads. They have different measur-
ing sticks for student performance and dif-
ferent goals. Teachers and administrators
cannot do a good job of serving two masters.
After eight years in control of the
Legislature, Bush and Republicans made a
significant gesture when they raised teach-
ers' pay this past year. It has become too
obvious that to get the best teachers, and
keep them, we must offer more incentives
than our southern neighbors.
We must continue to upgrade salaries for
our educators especially in light of the
crunch on affordable housing in Florida.
The state should put more emphasis on
math and science and create special classes
to bolster the performance of students who


are less skilled in those areas.
We also believe the state should consider
methods to allow school districts to be more
flexible with their budgets. This is a com-
plaint we have heard for years that tight
controls in Tallahassee make it impossible
for local districts to target special needs or
come up with innovative programs.
There are other steps that should or could be
taken, but these ideas would be a good start.
Before we elect a new governor in Novem-
ber, we call on the candidates to address
education and offer their own ideas on how
to improve Florida's dismal performance in
graduation rates and under the No Child Left
Behind guidelines.
Florida is too progressive in other areas,
too big and too rich to accept the notion that
we are not giving our children the best edu-
cation possible.


Why not



try Bowie?


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

The city of Venice had a
community workshop on a
new proposal for the down-
town area once inhabited by
the American Legion, Elks
and some miscellaneous
other old buildings between
Tampa and Venice avenues
east of Business 41.
Marty Black, city manager,
and Tom Slaughter, planning
director, gave a presentation
on the Waterford Companies'
newest proposal for that area,
which includes four, six-story
'buildings and a four-story
restaurant. There would be a
parking garage under the
area, including the six-story
buildings.
To put this proposal in
context, Marty gave a little
primer on other New Urban-
ist projects around the coun-
try that were in the four-sto-
ries-and-up category.
This, to many, gave an
appearance of supporting the
proposal, although Marty was
careful to remark that he per-
sonally liked Waterford's first
proposal better and he does
not care which way it goes.
After about 45 minutes of
presentation it was opened to
the floor for comments,
which ranged greatly, al-
though the tenor certainly
was positive and construc-
tive.
Sue Lang, representing the
Venice Neighborhoods Coali-
tion, said it would be hard to
comment on these plan
because she could not tell
heights or square footage. She
knows plans don't tell the
whole story.
She echoed what several
people said, that while she felt
there was too much height, a
five-story hotel might be ac-
ceptable because there is a
need for hotel space. She em-
phasized she meant a real
hotel.
Sue questioned why city
staff was making Waterford's
presentation, which Marty
answered by saying they
could offer other planning
perspectives. It seemed inap-
propriate to me, but then, our
entire planning process
seems backward.
As Don O'Connell so aptly
pointed out, we seem to plan
one parcel at a time, and our


planning is done by develop-
ers not by city council, not
by the planning commission,
not by its citizens.
He also said rather point-
edly that the process they
were using was illegal "spot
zoning." He reiterated that
point a couple of times.
There were many people
who said how nice it was
Waterford was helping a
blighted area. I concur, but do
not think that gives the com-
pany any right to do develop-
ment different from what'the.
people want.
It was alluded to that
height is needed to make the
numbers work. That is not the
citizens' concern. We did not
ask Waterford to purchase
that property.
I think most people like the
design styles that Waterford
has done, and there was a
feeling it would do a first-
class project. Of course, the
company has been good to
our community.
Ted Yeatts, Venice's first
city engineer, said that a large
buildup would cause tremen-
dous traffic problems, That
was echoed by at least one
other presenter, who said
those intersections cannot
use more pressure.
John Simmonds, city
council member, mentioned
that everyone had been con-
cerned the nine-story towers
would cause a traffic problem
and that hasn't happened. My
only thought on that is one,
building is not built and the
others were in large part
bought on speculation and
are not even half occupied.
It wvas surprising to some
that no mention was made of
three-story structures, which
is generally what people
want. From the presentation,
you would think New Urban-
ism was only high structures,
but that is just not the case.
I happened to pick up a
magazine this week and there
were many examples of New
Urbanism at two- and three-
stories high. A couple of audi-
ence members asked why no
one mentioned other cities--
like St. Augustine and Naples
that limit heights.
John Moore asked why no
one mentioned the Bowie
report the city paid for to tell
us how to develop the island,
including the area in ques-
tion. John read parts of the.
report that said it should have
green space, sidewalk cafes,
mixed use, stores with living
quarters above, setbacks and
heights up to four stories. It
was a document that I think
the bulk of the community
liked.
The question I have is, why

There's no money in it


No commercial interest. Lewdness at Caspersen Beach is not
being addressed in an effective manner either by the county or
by the city because those who are troubled by the behavior are
not commercial interests. No one would make any money,
even if'the efforts to stop the lewd behavior were successful.
Were a developer, for example, to show interest in solving the
problem, Marty Black would be all over it. Marty Black spent
some taxpayer money to call many pf us in Venice on Friday to
invite us to a hurricane fair, which was at least in part, an effort
with commercial overtones. Somebody would make a few
,bucks from it. So grandfathers wishing to walk their grand-
daughters on Caspersen Beach might consider pooling their
resources to hire a lobbyist to persuade Mr. Black that random
patrols by Venice Police might help to solve the problem.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Caspersen Beach is county property; Venice police
can support sheriff operations there but it isn't in their primary jurisdic-

?They can arrest people out of

along the beach, explaining

people know that it is not a

out and nobody around out,
vyou know, 'hardly anybody
'around there, and I can imag-
ine why they would think, it
wodud be OK to do that. But it
. isn't OK. A couple of signs, just
'to warn them,, let them know


what the law is, and I think
that you would see a great
reduction in that. Most of
these people are law-abiding
citizens, they just don't know
the laws in that area. Then
they're reading on Web sites
that it's legal to do it, so they're
getting mixed messages.
Can't deny. I'm calling in
response to the "Drive them
out" call. I also would like to
see the illegal Mexicans re-
turn to Mexico, but not by this
cruel and shortsighted meth-
od. You cannot deny medical
care to people in emergency
situations and those children,
whether they're born in hos-
pitals or on the street, are still
going to be American citizens.
Similarly, if you don't allow
the children to go to school,
what will they do? Start fires,
rob fast-food stores-- that is
not a solution.The only viable
option the writer mentioned
is putting a hefty tax on
employers. This is the route to
go. If they can't get jobs, they
will go back. But you needn't
carry to inhumane extremes.
Who's minding? First we
were told construction on
Center Road would begin at
Jacaranda Boulevard and pro-


gress eastward. Without ex-
planation, the order was re-
versed despite the inconve-
nience to all of us who live
near Jacaranda and also the
people who attend any of the
four churches that are east of
Jacaranda. Now the contrac-
tor intends to erect a barrier
to traffic going east as it leaves
Our Lady of Lourdes Church,
despite a petition with more
than 2,000 signatures asking
for an outlet. Where are our
elected representatives?
Who's minding the store, the
contractor?
Mutual respect. I would like
to make a comment about the
Let'em Have It call about the
cars and bicycles-at the jetties.
I would also like to say that
bicycles, while they're very
nice to have in the area, need
to follow the same rules as
cars, and that includes not
running through stop signs,
stopping at red lights, stop-
ping before they make turns,
etc. We treat them with
respect, they treat cars and
vehicles with respect also.
Odd. I just read of yet anoth-
er survey in which only about a
third of young adults could
identify Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia
or Israel on a map. But could
Venice residents who could
pass these tests pass a simple
test of their own city? Locate
Venice City Hall and the big
Henry Ranch annexation on a
map. Name the mayor and any
three council members. True or
false the population of Ven-
ice may double in about 10
years; the areas now known as
North and South Venice are
withinVenice city limits. Odd, is
it not, that a resident who can
identify all the nations of
Europe, but doesn't know his
own city limits is considered
educated?

Certainly the light needs to

the list.

PHOTO COURTESY OF SPD
Pilot Robert Cropper, 53, put his 1977 Commander 112-
TCA down in Sarasota Bay Friday morning after it started
to develop engine trouble shortly after takeoff for a flight
to Venice. According to a Sarasota Police Department
press release, a witness said the plane just made a soft
landing on the water without its wheels down about 100
yards offshore of the Ringling Mansion. Cropper and a pas-
senger, 40-year-old Kevin Underwood, were picked up by
a Mote Marine Lab boat working in the area. A single
engine PA 24 Commanche also made an emergency land-
ing in Sarasota Friday. The plane landed safely on Fruitville
Road near its intersection with Deer Hammock Road in
east Sarasota County. The pilot, Remy Dulay, 37, and pas-
senger, Balraj Atwal, 24, were not injured, according to a
Sarasota County Sheriff's Office press release. Both emer-
gency landings are under investigation by the Federal
Aviation Administration.,

Venice wins 2 on
Friday, loses 2 on
Saturday

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice Indians "A"
baseball team mixed it up'
Friday and Saturday with a
trip up 1-75 to Twin Lakes Park
for the Florida West Coast
Summer Slam.
The Summer Slam gave
local ball squads a chance to
swing against competition
from outside the area.
For the most part, Venice
played well in splitting four
games. The Indians won
twice Friday before dropping
two tough ones on Saturday.
"Hopefully, we learned
something from this," Indian
manager Craig Faulkner said.
,"It was a good experience for
our kids."
Venice opened up Friday
afternoon with a 6-3 victory
over the Hit Masters out of
Tampa.
Trevor Pelletier turned out
to be a true master of the alu-
minum, as he led the Venice
attack with three hits. Ryan
Anderson was 2-for-2. Sal
Licata boomed a double.
Anderson started and gave
four strong innings. Zack
Montalbano followed with
three solid frames.
Next up was the Tampa
Dawg Pound, which Venice
demolished by an 11-1 count.
Jason Kaufman continued
his impressive summer run
with another outstanding
performance on the hill.
Ricky Steranko swatted
two singles. Jordan Wean had
a double. Brody McClellan,
Wade Swikle, Pete Hernandez
and Pelletier also had hits.
Saturday was a different
story, as Venice lost to two tra-
ditionally strong programs.
In the morning, the
Indians faced a talented
Buchholz squad. Venice fell
behind 6-0 but rallied in the


I


^^Sa^'


seventh inning. The locals
scored five times and had the
bases loaded when the final
out was recorded.
Hernandez, Nate Rubin,
Swikle, Kaufman and Josh
Struble had big hits to keep
the rally going.
Struble started, giving way
to Montalbano and then Mike
McCord.
The final game of the
Summer Slam was against
Winter Haven Post 8. Venice
took a 5-4 lead into the sev-
enth inning butWinter Haven
scored five times for a 9-5 vic-
tory.
The Indians were an out
away from securing the win,
but one error led to another
and the game slipped away.
McClellan had a RBI dou-
ble in the fifth that broke a 4-
4 tie. Venice took a 4-0 lead in
the second, three of them
coming across on, a home run
by Struble, who also played a
great game defensively at
shortstop.
Martin Kenealy started for
Venice. Pelletier md Ryan
Angell also pitched
* The A team wil next see
action Tuesday at home
against Lemon Bay.
VENICE B 7, LEMON BAY6
- A run in the bottom of the
seventh powered the Venice
"B" team to victory over visit-
ing Lemon Bay Friday.
Ryan Skelton reached on
an error. Joe lorio bunted
pinch runner Donnie Albert
over to second. Don Pedigo
had the game-winning single.
Mike Geers, Kyle Collison
and Jake Brandenberger also
swatted the ball.
Brandenberger, Collison
and Tommy Hasken drew.

- CHARLOTTE 17,\VENICE B
13 The B squad lost this
walk-filled affair Saturday at
theVHS Complex.
Kyle Collison and Michael
Geers were the big hitters for
the locals. Joe Iorio started
and pitched well.
The B team travels to Lake
Placid for a doubleheader
Monday starting at 4 p.m.

Jon Thaxton: Please solve challenges before expanding


STAFF REPORT

The Sun papers asked
Sarasota County Com-
missioner Jon Thaxton 10
questions about the growth
coming to South County.
Thaxton represents District 5,
which includes Venice, No-
komis, Osprey and other
communities between Cen-
ter Road near Venice and
Clark Road near Sarasota.
1. How do you see South
County in 10 years?
Crowded.
2. How do you think the
growth will effect the people
of South County?
People will always be peo-
ple, it is the built and natural
'environment that will
*change.
3. What are you doing to
affect the change in South
County?
* Attempt to convince com-
munity leaders that the coun-
:ty and its municipalities have
'more capacity in our existing
master plans for growth
l(comp plans), than we have

money to build the infra-
structure that the new devel-
opment will require. We need
to solve the challenges at
hand before we consider
expanding the potential for
additional obligations. The
first step to getting yourself
out of a hole is to stop dig-
ging.
4. How will the growth
affect the quality of life down
here?
Traffic Eill become a seri-
ous detriment to the present
quality of life. However con-
sidering that the weather will
be always be better in south
Sarasota County than- in;
many other places, with eyen
worse traffic conditions,
South County will still be in:
comparison, attractive. We
should also expect to see a:
continued downward trend
in water quality for Lemon i
Bay and Charlotte Harbor;
unless radical changes are,
made to our land develop-:
ment regulation. Expect tol
pay much more for an ever-,
increasing demand for drink-

ing water.
5. How will transportation
issues be re-
solved? -
Assuming
growth will con-
tinue and people
will want their
cars, the trans-
portation issue
will not be
resolved, just as
it has not been
resolved in other
communities
with similar cir-
cumstances. It
simply declines. Thxt
Transportation
in South County will only
become more difficult, time
consuming and expensive
over the next 10 years and
likely will beyond that. We can
only mitigate traffic conges-
tion with 'smart' growth and
transit, and then only to a
point. Existing traffic condi-
tions in South County are as


good as they are going to get.
6. With all of the growth
expected in
South County,
how will af-
fordable hous-
ing come into
Splay?
The market,
employers and
businesses will
S play an ever-in-
Screasing role in
affordable hou-
sing. This is not
an issue that
government
alone can fix.
7. How will
the growth in South County
affect the building of the
Englewood Interstate Con-
nector?
One would hope that "off
the top" federal funding and
the new growth that requires
the construction of the
Englewood Interstate Con-
nector would pay for it.


8. What are the top three
issues facing South County?
1.) Coordinating the
approval of new growth (beg-
inning at the comp plan level)
with a financially feasible
infrastructure plan to accom-
modate the new growth, so
that taxes are not increased
and that quality of life is not
diminished.
2.) Executed joint planning
agreements between the
county and the South County
municipalities that realize
that all of southeastern Sar-
asota County should not be
available for municipal devel-
opment.
3) Coordinating the ap-
proval of new growth (begin-
ning at the comp plan level)
with a financially feasible in-
frastructure plan to accom-
modate the new growth, so
that taxes are not increased
and that quality of life is not
diminished.
9.What drawbacks do you


expect with the rapid growth
of South County?
Increased taxes and a
diminished quality of life as
the result of approving new
growth without a coordinated
financially feasible infrastruc-
ture plan to accommodate
the new growth.
10. How are North Port
and Sarasota County going
to work through the growth
process of South County?
It's time to wake! Sara-
sota is at a critical junction
and if we want to become a
more livable community than
many of our overcrowded
Florida counties, we have to
stop doing things the same
way that they did it. I believe
in a Sarasota County where
agriculture, open space and
environmental lands are a
final land use, not temporary
holding patterns for develop-
ment yet to come. Either we
choose our destination, or it
will be chosen for us.

STAFF WRITER

Deep under the world's watery blanket lives
a colossal monster.
Little is known about this creature of the
deep, but it is known that it resides near
Florida, in addition to much of the 'world.
Architeuthis dux is its name, but it is more
commonly known as the giant squid.
Squids belong to the phylum Mollusca,
which labels them as mollusks. Squids are
joined by octopus, cuddlefish, argonauts and
nautilus in the class cephalopoda. Squids, like
octopus, are invertebrates, meaning they do
not have spines. There are more than 700
species of squid, and many of them are so tiny
that they can barely be seen. Many of the
smaller species of squid have been studied by
scientists, but in contrast with their cousin,
there is little that is known about the giant
squid.
Captain Nemo's bane
The giant squid is a mystery to many scien-
tists. It has never been thoroughly studied
because it hasn't ever been seen in its natural
habitat. The giant squid lives at depths
unreachable by current technology available
to divers and submariners. It is believed that
they live in a pitch black environment about
3,300 feet beneath the ocean's surface.
It is a significantly unique creature.
No one knows for certain how large a giant
squid can grow, but specimens have been
found reaching 60 feet in length. A giant squid
is made up of three sections: the mantle, the


brain and the arms and
tentacles.
The mantle is the long
tube that houses the
giant squid's organs. All
squids, including the big
guys, have three hearts.
The three hearts are used
to force the blood
through the chambers.
Also inside the mantle is
the ink sac, unique to the
species. Squids use ink as
a defense mechanism.
While it is believed that
there is no venom within
its ink, it generally will
scare its predator long
enough for the squid to
jet away to safety. Some
species of squid, much
smaller than the giant j
squid, produce an opa-
lescent mucus to scare
away predators, as a dark A giant squid beak \
substance would be use-
less many fathoms below the surface.
The mantle also gives the giant squid a
sleek design, enabling it to propel itself
through water. Not as fast as other underwater
creatures, it is not exactly slow. The giant
squid, like its cousins, has a funnel that is used
for propulsion through the water. It prevents
the squid from spinning into a .vortex. The
funnel is used by the male squid to release
sperm and by the female, eggs. It also is used
for expelling waste and ink.
Between the squid's mantle and arms is the
brain area, where the eyes are positioned. The
giant squid's brain is the most advanced of all
invertebrates. In observing smaller squids, sci-
entists have learned that the brain area is
where squids are the most vulnerable. The file
fish, a relatively small fish ranging about 3
inches in diameter, hates squids. One signifi-
cant bite to the brain area of a squid, and the
squid will die instantly. Scientists predict the
same is true for a giant squid.
Some giant squid have eyes the size of the

from a 15-foot specimen.

human head, while smaller specimens have
eyes the size of large grapefruits. Aside from
the squid's arms, the eyes are the most promi-
nent feature of the creature. At the depths
where giant squids are said to live, large eyes
are a necessity.
Scientists think squids cannot hear. They
rely on other senses for protection. In the
depths of the ocean, it is said, squids can feel
the current of the water move when some-
thing is coming their way. Giant squids have
the fastest nerves in all of the animal kingdom.
W hat's for dinner?
Cephalapods have beaks at their mouths.
As Jules Verne described it in his famous
novel "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," "The
monster's mouth, a homed beak like a par-
rot's, opened and shut vertically. What a freak
of nature a bird's'beak on a mollusk!"
It is not known exactly what giant squids
eat because no one specimen has been found
without an empty stomach, possibly a sign the


creature knows its death is imminent.
Many scientists believe that giant squids
eat crustaceans, fish and other squid.
Calamari, which is made from small-
er species of squid, makes for a popular
appetizer. Giant squids, filled with
ammonia, possibly for buoyancy, are not
desirable for human consumption,
. although the taste seems to be tolerated
r by giant sperm whales. Giant squid beaks
have been found inside the stomachs of
sperm whales. A giant squid beak has
also been found inside the stomach of a
mako shark. Scientists often use sperm
whales to track the giant squid.
In many accounts of 19th-century
fishermen, there is rumored to be a
bloody battle between a giant squid and
the sperm whale, a clash of the titans of
sorts. In one instance, a sperm whale
emerged from the water with the squid's
many arms clenched- tightly around its
head, dragging it down to drown it in the
anonymous sea.
Like the mythical hydra with its nine
heads, the giant squid's arms and tenta-
cles are a source of dread for many who see
them. A squid has eight arms and two tenta-
cles, longer than the arms, used to catch and
hold food. Suction cups can be found on the
arms and tentacles that can be used to latch
on to predators or prey.
In a famous picture of sperm whale skin,
gigantic suction cup scars can be seen. By the
size of the suction cups, the squid that
attacked should have been about 100 feet in
length. However, many scientists dispel this
notion because the age of the whale was not
known when the attack occurred, as the skin
of the whale could have stretched during
growth.
Squid and sons
Squid reproduction is a source of specula-
tion. Some say squids reproduce only once in
their lifetime. This is not certain, but it is
known that the smaller male squids, which

The Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and the city of Sarasota thank volunteers


PHOTO COURTESY OF THE VAN WEZEL


STAFF REPORT


The Van Wezel Performing
Arts Hall hosted an annual
appreciation party May 21,
2006 to thank all of their vol-
unteers for their hard work
during the 2005-06 season.
The appreciation party
honored more than 400 Van
Wezel volunteers who com-
mit their time to the hall
each year. They put in more
than 1,000 hours per season
to keep the hall running
smoothly. It takes about 40
ushers per show, which
equals around 40,000 volun-
teer hours for the year. Just
this year 92 of the ushers


have volunteered for the Van
Wezel for five years.
The Van Wezel volunteers
are essential to the operation
of the hall. Without their
help the hall would not run
as efficiently. "The ushers are
the most visible and accessi-
ble representatives of the Van
Wezel Performing Arts Hall.
They make a lasting impres-
sion on many of our patrons
who have never attended an
event at the hall. We depend
on their dedication and
enthusiasm i to help make
the Van Wezel an admired
cultural institution," says
Loreda Williams, house man-
ager.

Chronic pain that often afflicts your
elders, get into the best possible shape
you can. That is the recommendation of
Finnish researchers, who found that adolescent
boys with good flexibility and adolescent girls
with good endurance strength were less likely to
experience chronic pain as adults. Specifically, the
men who were most flexible as teenagers were half
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.

American badger: Wider than tall, bowlegged, fierce


LARRY ALLAN
FRESH AIR COLUMNIST

I'm often asked, "What is
the most ferocious animal
you've ever tried to photo-
graph?" No, it's not the
cougar, not the gray wolf, not
the lynx, not even the
Siberian tiger. It's the
American badger! I'll bet
that's a surprise.
That distinction is based,
in part, on my definition of
"ferocious," I'm sure. But I
remember that every move
on my part, every effort.I
made to get just a little better
image of this mysterious ani-
mal, was met with a snarling,
growling; hissing and show-
ing of teeth very, very
sharp-looking teeth, and
long, deadly claws. The bad-
ger constantly moved to face
me. And it stayed put, partly
in its burrow.


My assistant stood nearby,
with a shovel, ready to drop
the face of the blade between.
me and my subject, in case
that badger decided to come
out of its burrow at me as I
lay on the ground to get the
photographs I wanted. By the
way, badgers don't usually
attack. Like so many other
animals with fierce reputa-
tions, badgers prefer to
retreat when they perceive a
threat. In this case, down a
hole, which they can dig
quicker than a person can
dig one with a shovel, throw-
ing dirt in the face of their
attacker. However, badgers
are seldom attacked in
nature.
Unlike so many other wild
animals I'd met, I wasn't able
to create any kind of connec-
tion with the American bad-
ger. It seemed to be an ani-
mal born with a mean streak
- but of course, it was really
just being defensive,
extremely defensive. That's
something it does well.
We don't have badgers in
this part of the United States.
They're found in the West
and mid-west, mostly, but
not along the Eastern
seaboard. Badgers are pow-
erful. Their bowlegs are
superbly shaped to dig holes,
holes that are wide, reflecting
their shape, which is wider


than it is tall.
American badgers are
excellent hunters. One of
their favorite foods is rat-
tlesnake. They seem to be
unaffected by rattler venom.
They also hunt rats and mice,
gophers, ground squirrels
and prairie dogs.
I once watched a badger
and a coyote hunting in a
prairie dog town. The badger
went into a hole after its prey,
digging at an unbelievably
fast pace, .but the little prairie
dog scooted out a back
entrance, only to be caught
by the quick-thinking coyote
waiting there. I'm told this
type of "cooperation"
between the two species isn't
uncommon. Sometimes, the
prey stays "safely" in its tun-
nel to avoid the coyote, only
to be caught by the burrow-
ing badger.
When badgers do run
after prey, it's obvious they're
not built for this type of pur-
suit. They have an awkward,
loping sort of gait. But in a
burrow, they are perfectly
designed for speedy, efficient
digging. Nature's excavator!
And in that mode, they're
awe-inspiring to watch-
from a safe distance!

WELL BEING


Fitness fantasies


DICK HARRISON
GUEST COLUMNIST


The day I joined my fit-
ness club, Lou Ferrigno, "The
Incredible Hulk," was the
Grand Opening Celebrity of
honor. He was selling auto-
graphed photos at $20. a pop
about as fast as he could
write. Looking at his bulging
muscles, it was hard to be-
lieve he was 53 years old.
We are alike in a lot of
ways. He is hard of hearing
and so am I. That disability
started him on a body-build-
ing path to bolster his self-
esteem. Mine prompted me
to buy hearing aids to build
my own self-esteem after
"what did you say?" became
the most used words in my
vocabulary.
In 1953 and '54 he starred
in "Hercules" and "Hercules
II," films my ad agency help-
ed advertise.
Now, here we were to-


gether in the same room, he
well along in his body-build-
ing career me about to start
mine. Looking at him, then
at my own refection in one
of the full-length mirrors, my
fitness fantasies began. As I,
sucked in my stomach I
could see my reflection grad-
ually broaden and shape up
with the handsomely sculp-
tured muscle that would be
mine after a few months of
diligent exercise.
If only I had my stick-and-
peel abs, I would have set up,
my own table next to his
and begun signing "The
Incredible Bulk" photos for
$4.95 each!
Fitness fantasies have
quickly allowed me to be-
come "a legend in my own
mind." Just the other day as I
sweated my way through fif-
teen minutes of warm-up, I
watched, in my mind's eye,
as the huge crowd rose to its
feet and cheered wildly! I
raised my right arm, fist
clenched, in an exultant vic-
tory salute as I completed a
cool off lap on my exercise
bike. Pedaling furiously, I
had just broken the five-
minute mile!
To be truthful, there wasn't
a wildly cheering crowd; just
a few bored looking, flabby
housewives on exercise bikes
like mine staring at the row
of TVs suspended from the


ceiling in front of us or lis-
tening to who-knows-what
through earphones attached
to radios, I-pods, or portable
CD players clipped at their
waists.
I At my age, the nice thing
about fantasies is the ease
with which one may traverse
miles and years and embroi-
der the event with people
and places that will add ex-
citement to the experience.
But a word of caution
here: Don't get carried away.
As I completed my cool-off
lap, I imagined my enthus-
iastic crowd was the same as
the one that witnessed an-
other historic first.
In 1954, when Lou starred
in the "Hercules" movies,
Roger Bannister became the
first man to break the four-
minute mile. Of course, he
was running and I was on a
bike, but given our ages it
was a fair race. I was men-
tally enjoying the competi-
tion until I did the math.
From a standing start,
Roger running and me on
my bike, he crossed the finish
line 1,320 feet ahead of me.
That's 440 yards a full lap
around a typical running
track.
It's almost enough to make
me give up competitive sta-
tionary bicycle racing.

resident.

By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. My mother hears well at
home with her hearing aids
but is not able to understand
voices very well when we are
out, Restaurants, movies and
cars present the biggest
problems for her. Why? Is
there anything we can do to
improve this?
A. All of us have experienced
the frustration of trying to hear
the television or radio while
others are talking. Noise is
often an uncontrollable factor
and can emanate from
.anywhere within the area. A
number of studies show that for
good speech understanding to
occur, hearing impaired
persons need the speaker's
voice to be 15 20 decibels
louder than, the background
noise. This represents what is
known as the singal-to-noise
ratio and it is determined by
measuring the intensity of the
speech and the background
noise and then figuring the
difference. Most restaurant
have a measured background
noise of 60 decibels while the
loudness of normal speech is
65 decibels. This 5 decibel
signal-to-noise ratio is clearly
inadequate for understanding
speech properly. The use of
hearing aids with directional
microphones is not the only
way to improve a signal-to-
noise ratios. FM systems can
also provide improved
understanding in noisy
situations. Contact
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. at 492-4327 (HEAR) to
discover ways of improving
your hearing ability in noise.

down to the bass buttons of 'Lady of Pain'


SLIM RANDLES
GUEST COLUMNIST
"I'm getting the bass but-
tons down now," said Dud,
gleefully flipping his coffee
mug to the upright and fill-
able position. "I'm telling
you, in no time at all, I'll be
able to play a waltz or polka
on that thing."
"Dudley, me lad," said Doc,


unofficial chief music critic at
the philosophy counter, "as a
physician, I am suggesting
you have that accordion of
yours tested."
"For what, Doc?" '' ':.
"Asthma. I've heard you
play it."
But there is something in
the soul of an artist that can-
not be dimmed by mere
mortal criticism, some inner
belief that if one simply prac-
tices long enough at one's
craft, something good will
emerge. Artists' souls are
sometimes wrong.
"It's really a wonderful
instrument, guys," Dud said.
"I mean, think about it. With
an accordion you have the
equivalent of an entire orch-
estra. You have the treble,


you have the bass, you have
those stops ... you know, the
switches you can flip so you
can sound like everything
from a church organ to a.
clarinet solo."
'Dud looked around at the
other members of the world
dilemma think tank as they
sipped coffee. It was a quiet
morning in the Mule Barn
truck stop. The rest of us were
careful not to give anything
away by our expressions. We
know it drives Dud nuts.
That's why we do it.,
Finally, Steve drew him-
self up to his coffee-drinking
pinnacle of thought. We saw
he was going to say some-
thing. When that cowboy
says something, it sometimes
makes sense and sometimes


. just comes from having seen
the world from between the
ears of a horse. But ol' Steve
was looking serious. When
he's serious, he looks like.
'a,. combinations of 'Wilfo rd
Brimley and a\ great, homed
owl.
"Would you say, Dud,
that you're gaining ground
on learning- that 'Lady of
Spain' piece?"
"Hey, Steve, I've got that
sucker surrounded and I'm
closing in for the kill."
"Well, I heard you worry-
ing that thing the other day
and it sounded more like
'Lady of Pain.' "'

SENIOR SCENE


Just never too old


The other day, the Manatee
Talking Books Headquarters
honored 10 dedicated
patrons between the ages of
100 and 110 who still listen to
and enjoy the Talking Book
Service. The two from Venice
are Edward Connor and
Grace Hatch. That blows my
mind! But come to think
about it, Ann Kek, my table-
mate, is 99 years old and is a
dedicated mystery book lis-
tener.
When I refer to talking
books, I'm not referring to the
kind you put in your car tape
deck and listen to on your way
to work. A long time ago, I
wrote a column about talking
books that are available
through the efforts of the
Library of Congress and the
state of Florida. I'm sure the
state of Michigan has the
same service.
These are designed for the
visually impaired or other-
wise handicapped people. In
Florida, they come free
through the mail in little
green plastic boxes. Any kind
of book you might want and
for any age are available. Even
the machines for listening
come free through the mail. I
am a most dedicated patron.
Of course, sometimes I get a
doozy like the other day I got


one about how to find your
soul mate either in this life
or the next! I dunno!
According to Pat Schubert,
there are 1,985 patrons of this
service throughout Braden-
ton, Sarasota and Venice.
The other day, Babe Ruth
(that really is her name), our
activities director said some-
thing so simple yet so pro-
found as she was ushering us
"blindies" and "deafies" into a
tough Trivia session.
She remarked, 'All I can do
is try." I thought about that.
That is a darn good milotto to
live by.
A few months ago, my
friend Milly Taylor sent me
the following from an e-mail.
As a rule I refrain from using
e-mail, but this one was too
good to resist.
AARP's'Sound

To commemorate her 69th
birthday on Oct. 1, 2004,

One of the musical numbers
she performed was "My

the song were deliberately
changed for the entertain-
ment of her "blue hair" audi-
ence. Here are the lyrics she
recited:

Bundles of magazines tied up

Too much information on TV


BY DALE MOORE
GUEST COLUMNIST

The other evening after a
long and especially tiring day
I thought I'd relax and enjoy
my favorite TV show. But my
relaxation was shattered by
the many commercials that
crossed the screen in those
next thirty minutes.
First came a woman de-
scribing to a perfect stranger
how her husband suffers
from constipation. The poor
husband, completely morti-
fied, dragged her off but not
till she had pulled the box
from her purse and displayed
it for the camera. (Do you
know anyone who carries
around laxatives, aspirins, or
headache medicine still in a
like new box?)
The first woman was
immediately followed by an-
other, who brazenly told the
TV audience about the
painful periods she suffered


each month until she discov-
ered medicine X. Then the
commercial portrayed when
she took her pill her days were
not only pain free but each
day was like a walk through a
meadow of flowers. I'm glad
for her, but really it was TMI
(To Much Information). A few
minutes later a whole parade
of faces flashed across the
screen, persons suffering
from high cholesterol. But the
voice behind the parade
assured me that now, due to
an over the counter drug
available at my local pharma-
cy, a prescription that lowered
"bad" cholesterol and raised
"good", the faces were all as
happy as a group of high
school students after a win-
ning football game.
About that time, I felt as if
both my cholesterol and
blood pressure were rising. At
length, the game show re-
turned and I again focused on
relaxing without the need of


any medications.
It was not to be. Within five
minutes a nicely dressed
older gentleman was looking
directly at me and telling me
(and millions of others) how
he suffered from ED (erectile
dysfunction) Again TMI."
Erectile Dysfunction, pain-
ful periods, cholesterol (good
or bad) and other conditions I
see discussed daily on my TV
are subjects I would only dis-
cuss with my doctor behind
closed doors.
I'm no prude but really,
whatever happened to deco-
rum? Where are all those cen-
sors who are constantly
screaming about what chil-
dren watch on TV?
Do 6-year-olds really need
to know about erectile dys-
function or painful periods?
The next time I want to
relax I think I'll just read the
"Physician's Desk Reference."
And that's my two .cents
worth...

Gardens train tour was Grand and Luxe, Part VI


Richmond is being rebuilt again


On the fifth night, passengers aboard the
American Orient Express Train, soon to be known
as Grandluxe Rail Journeys, slept aboard the
train as it was parked at the Richmond station.


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
final installment of a six-part series.
BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Amazing the way I had
made myself at home in my
Vintage Pullman compart-
ment that measured just 7 by
7 feet.
It might have had some-
thing to do with the route
of our trip from the warm
South to the frosty north. The
little compartment seemed
especially cozy in Richmond
where the outside tempera-
ture hovered near 30 degrees
as I piled on the layers of
clothing and remembered
why I had moved to Florida 13
years ago..
We were in the former
capital of the Confederacy, a
city that was devastated dur-
ing the Civil War, despite
being a city that had voted
against secession from the
Union' just a month before
the war began in 1861. Much
of the downtown was bum-
ed in those years yet the town
was quick to recover and
today's Richmond is one of
the loveliest cities in the
South, even when- the rem-,
perature is in the 30s and the


eral places that would have
been fun to walk around. As
the weather was not con-
ducive to that, no one even
thought of leaving the
warmth of the bus.
And when 'we finally
returned to the train for our
farewell dinner, there were
probably more thoughts of
Hot Toddies than cold drinks.
Our appetizer was cdrab cakes
drizzled with a chive aioli.
That and the next course,
French onion soup, were
both warm, and did not go
unappreciated.
Once again, choosing an
entree was, not easy. For the
farewell dinner AOE offered
Filet mignon served over
roasted garlic mashed pota-
toes with sauteed asparagus,
cornbread and sausage-
stuffed quail with snow peas
or cold water lobster tail on a
bed of saffron rice pilaf with
sauteed juliann vegetables
and a vanilla bean butter
sauce. Or, you could mix
and match, having half of
one and half of another.
Never having met a lobster
I didn't like, I ordered the
lobster and was not disap-
pointed. Because' the staff
always, airfis to please, I was
able to have it with the garlic

of the American Orient Express train.


sky is gray.
Our tour of Richmond had
taken us past Civil War sites,
stately homes and gardens
and today's reconstruction
projects.
Like our tours of Charles-
ton and Savannah, this tour
was informative and com-
plete. Had it been warmer,
there would have been sev-


mashed potatoes rather than
the rice.
For dessert, we had a
choice of chocolate maca-
damia semi-freddo light
frozen mousse with puff pas-
try, strawberry Bavarian torte
or seasonal fresh fruit. Our
dinner foursome managed to
order at least one of each
dessert and also one for an

imaginary dessert-eating
friend we had acquired a few
days earlier. Fred, our special
dessert-eating friend, could
always be counted on to
make sure that everyone got
to sample all the desserts. I
think all four of us will be
traveling often with dear old
Fred in the future, especially
when next we are aboard a
GrandLuxe train or on a
cruise ship that offers such
choices.
We lingered at the table the
last night before heading off
to our last night in our little
Pullmans. It really was amaz-
ing that we new friends who
met on the train had been
assigned to cabins that were
all in a row in the same car,
the Montreal.
The last segment
In the morning, those pas-
sengers who were leaving
for early flights had to have
their luggage ready to go by
8 a.m. They missed the last
train ride and were bussed to
Washington Dulles or what-
ever airport they were flying
from. The rest of us could
pack a bit more leisurely for
our luggage just had to be
ready before we got to
Washington.
Continental breakfast was
served from 6:30-9 a.m. in
the New York Observation
Car and the Copper Canyon
Dome Car. Our foursome
met -in. the, Chicago Dining
Car for breakfast about 8. It
was being served there from
7-9 a.m. From 9:30-10:30,
there was one final lecture
in the Copper Canyon Dome
Car Traveling America
Then and Now.
At 11:15, the train departed
from the old Richmond sta-
tion and we had a leisurely
lunch while the train headed
east to Union Station in
Washington, D.C. It was
scheduled to arrive at 1:30
p.m. so after lunch we head-
ed to the last car on the
train, the New York Obser-
vation Car, where we chatted
with the train master again
and watched the country-side
give way to the city.
As we came into Washing-
ton we caught glimpses of
the Washington and Lincoln
monuments from the train
and every once in a while, a
little bit of sunshine.
As the train neared the sta-
tion, we headed back to our
cabins, collecting our hand
luggage and, preparing to
disembark. The porters took
our bags to the front of the
station for us and too soon
we were hugging goodbye.
Steve and Lou Lorton were
staying in the city for a few
days. Sharon Jones and I
shared a cab to Washington
National. We both had late
afternoon planes and would
be at our airports before
midnight. While I only had
to drive from Tampa, she
had to drive up into the snowy
mountains of California, get-
ting home well after mid-
night.
And then we all had to
work on our photo CDs as
we planned to exchange
photos. Jones sent hers to
me about two weeks before
I managed to copy the two
CDs I was sending to her.
It was a special trip and
we continue to stay in touch
by E-mail. Sharon and the
Lortons are already signed
up for a river cruise together
in Europe this summer. I
will be in Ohio, but, hopefully,
we will travel together again
as we all had a really good
time yet another bonus of
train travel. Thanks to AOE,

Anchor's a way to good speaking skills


BY KELEIGH KNABEL
GONDOLIER SUN INTERN


Some people's big careers
'get started in a small way, and
in the case of Jillian Starnm-
baugh, it begins with the
Venice Elementary School'
news.
Every morning this year at
VES, students got together in
their newly constructed stu-
dio and taped their own daily
news for their fellow students.,
The operation was overseen
by one adult, Mary Beth
Hagemann.
"Everything is completely
run by tiYdints," Hagriani
said. "And a lot of these kids
keep doing the news all the
way up through high school."
The new facility, with four
new TV screens, one comput-
er and two TV cameras, looks
hard to operate. There are lots
of buttons and switches
behind the glass that sepa-
rates the crew from the
anchors.
Kids are seated in front of
every station, controlling the
teleprompter, moving the
cameras and switching from
Camera One to Camera Two.
Welcome to WVES News
The two lead anchor-
women, Jillian Stambaugh
and Hannah Knoke, are all
smiles as they are given the
signal to begin the show. After
their greeting to the Channel
23 News, they lead the school
in reciting the Pledge of
Allegiance and the VES
Pledge. The news is read off a
teleprompter and runs much


like a real news program.
However, the WVES format
includes- happy birthday
announcements and' the
lunch menu.
The camera switches to
two enthusiastic co-anchors,
Kelsey Kozel and Brooke
Johnston, for special features
such as weather. Then it
switches back to the head
anchors for school announce-
ments and congratulatory
special announcements. On
occasion, a special guest
speaker will make an appear-
ance.
Stambaugh and Knoke
"imiltadneously smiled arid
recited, "This isWVES wishing
you a fun filled weekend!" as
they do every Friday morning
at the end of their taping. The
machinery is shut down, the
lights turned off, and the stu-

Hagemann stays behind to
straighten up the room. She's
worked at VES for .10 years,
and is overjoyed with the new
school building.
"This is the first control
room we've had," she said.
"We had to learn how to work
everything in here. A man
came down to show us how
everything worked."
Since she oversees the
daily news, students must
audition each May for the
roles of anchors on next
year's news show. The stu-
dents selected from the pro-
gram are genierilly from third,;

No one is left out. "If the
kids don't make anchor, we
put them in the control
room," Hagemann said.
Each year, the newly
selected news staff comes
down to the studio and. the
current news team shows
them how everything is done.
This is serious business,
Jill Stambaugh, Jillian's
mother, thinks the news pro-
gram is a good thing.
"It's boosted her confi-
dence and given her a com-
mrunitation skill so .she can

said about her daughter.
Jill believes Jillian will con-
tinue to do this type of school
news in the future. Her
daughter, a 10-year-old fifth-
grade student, really enjoys
the program. Jillian put a lot
of effort into being an anchor.
"She was elected to stu-
dent council," Jill said, "but
after thinking about it she
decided she wanted to put
more effort into being an
anchorwoman."
In addition to being elect-
ed to student council, Jillian is


in choriis and the gifted pro-
gram at school. Her past act-
ing experience with the
Venice Little Theatrehas con-
tributed to her boldness in
trying out for the school-wide
news program.
"Lots of people have no
idea that this goes on in
schools," Jill said.
Programs like this are
available in middle and high
school. With students like
.Jillian Stambaugh, they will

FRESH AIR from page4B6



Storm season is here:



Is your yard ready?


STAFF REPORT

With hurricane season
officially under way, Florida
Power & Light Company
offers hurricane preparation,
advice to help residents save
their trees while reducing the
risk of tree-related outages.
"We love our trees here in
Florida," said Steve Anderson,
vegetation specialist for FPL.
But the last two storm sea-
sons claimed many, and
some knocked over power
lines, causing power disrup-
tions and safety hazards. '"A
little planning will go a long
way toward protecting our
trees, our property and our
safety," said Anderson.
FPL recommends the fol-
lowing tips to prepare Florida
residents and their trees for
the upcoming storm season
while minimizing the likeli-


hood that trees will interfere
with power lines and disrupt
electrical service:
Now is the time, before a
hurricane threatens, to sur-
vey and prepare your yard.
Look for dead or weakened
branches that could snap
during a storm and begin
pruning to help trees better
withstand high winds.
If you do see a tree tan-
gled in or too close to a power
line, don't try and trim it your-
self. Only specially trained
line clearing professionals
should work around power
lines.
* If a tree or branch has dam-
aged a pole or line, creating
sparks or a power outage, call
(800) 4-OUTAGE to report the
problem.
* The best way to keep trees
from interfering with power
lines is prevention: choose


the right tree and plant it in
the right place to begin with.
Consider the mature height
of a tree when planting near
overhead electric lines. FPL
offers specific tips on the
selection and proper place-
ment of trees through its
Right Tree Right Place pro-
gram. Visit FPL.com/trees
for a list of recommended
trees and suggested set-
backs from overhead utili-
ties, as well as those to avoid
planting near power lines.
Trees planted in the right
place are also given the
room they need to achieve
proper form and height
without posing a safety haz-
ard.
Customers may also
request FPL's Right Tree Right
Place guide by calling FPL's
customer care center number
listed on their electric bill.

MONSTER from PageI B


have penises almost the same
size as their mantles, have ter-
rible aim when it comes to
reproduction. Packets of
semen were found lodged
inside some of the arms of a
male and female squid -
female squids are generally
larger than the males.
Fertilized squid eggs look.
like floating plants in water.
Giant squid larvae has been
found in the stomachs of
albatrosses. Albatrosses can
dive into 60 feet of water.
Therefore, squids, or at least
their larvae, must live in at at
least 60 feet of water.
The squid life span is
unknown and may be as little
as two years. It is known that
they grow and regenerate
very quickly.
A squid of a different color
One of the most alluring
aspects of the creature is its
coloring. Most artists depict


them as maroon in color, but
that is only a guess. When a
giant specimen dies, as all
specimens that were caught
or beached have done, the
maroon color, along with its
eyes, changes to a pasty clay
color. A live squid agitated
due to chumming or thwart-
ing a giant whale, will change
its color to white.
Giant squids might be
transparent. Its dermis is
thin. When a squid has been
caught or is about to die, it is
always maroon. Like the
empty stomach, the maroon
coloring could be an indi-
. cation that giant squids
have precognition of .their
deaths.
Giant squids remain a
mystery. Precognitive, preda-
tory and elusive, the subject
of rumors, squid continue to
fascinate. Some say that the
kraken, a legendary sea mon-
ster, was really a giant squid.


Some people believe that
giant squids attack ships at
will. No one really knows for
sure.
Available information has
all been gathered from speci-
mens that were sick, weak
and near death or from small-
er specimens.
Few giant squids have ever
been seen as few are caught,
most near Japan and
Australia. Many also have
been discovered off the east
coast of Florida and one was
found beached in Louisiana,
off the Gulf of Mexico.
A 15-foot male is on dis-
play at the AMNH (American
Museum of Natural History)
Hall of Ocean Life in Fort
Lauderdale (a specimen'
owned by the Smithsonian
Institution). Closer to Venice,
a preserved squid nearly
twice that size is on display at
Mote Marine Laboratory in
Sarasota.

STAFF REPORT


Losing a pet is a devastating expe-
rience, and in fact, according to a
recent survey, four in five pet owners
consider losing a
pet to be more trau-
matic than losing a
job, getting in a car
accident or break-
ing a bone.
Although no pet -
owner ever wants to
believe a beloved
pet is lost or miss-
ing, there is a good -
chance it might
happen.
"One in three :
pets will get lost /
during a lifetime,"
said Marty Becker,
DVM. "That adds
up to 10 million
pets that are lost
every year in the
United States, and 'IA .
without proper '.-
identification only --
one in 10 will be
reunited with his or
her owner." According to a re

owners to speak
with their veterinarian about
microchipping. Microchipping is a
safe and permanent form of pet iden-
tification.
Gina King of Soledad, Calif., knows
the value of microchips firsthand.
"I spent months looking for my
Shih Tzu, Radar, who ran out the front
door as our children left for school,"


said King. "I had just about given up
hope of ever finding him when, a year
and I half later, I got a phone call say-
ing Radar had been found on a high-
way off-ramp, about 25 miles from


recent survey conducted by Harris Interactiv
Recovery Service, four in five pet owners co
raumatic than losing a job, getting in a car a


home. Radar had been taken to a vet-
erinary clinic, where his microchip
was scanned, and my information
was retrieved from the HomeAgain
database."
Although collar ags are an easy
and inexpensive way to identify
pets, they can come off or be
removed. Microclips are the size of


a grain of rice and are inserted by
your veterinarian between a pet's
shoulder blades, with no more dis-
comfort than a routine vaccination.
The microchip contains a unique
number that can-
not be altered.
Despite the

microchipping
can play in pet
safety, only one-

Ben & Jerry





PHOTO COURTESY OF EARS
We are Ben and Jerry. We
v do not remember our
mom, at all. Judy, our foster
mom, told us when we
were about 2 or 3 weeks
old, we were found in a box
by a construction site. They
took us to EARS Animal
Rescue Sanctuary, and Judy
took us home. She is a
great foster mom.She bot-
tle fed us and took really
good care of us when we
were very little.
Now we are older,
almost 8 weeks -we are
growing up so fast! We are
going back to the vet next
week, and our foster mom
says we are ready to be
adopted into a permanent
family. We love to snuggle
and cuddle and play a lot.
EARS will assist the
adoption of any of these
S animals by providing all
: vaccinations, neutering
and microchipping for the
standard adoption fee of
$65. For a personal inter-
view, call EARS at 475-0636.

Children dress up for a celebration on school grounds.


Escuela Suefios de Luisa revisited



School benefactor Louise Brunberg gives an update on a school

for the poor she helped build in Nicaragua.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

The mothers named it
Suefios de Luisa. Today,
Dreams of Louise School in
Nagarote, Nicaragua, edu-
cates 260 students with 10
teachers in grades pre-k
through 4. Funded with
donations from Venice resi-
dent Louise Brunberg, a
retired teacher 77 years
young, Brunberg is on a mis-
sion to help sustain the
school she helped build.
It began in 1993 when
Brunberg visited Nagarote.
She was overwhelmed by the
abject poverty, especially the
suffering children. By 1996
she established a soup
kitchen for 30 kids, providing
what was for many their one
and only hot meal for the
day. In 1999 she established a
school in an abandoned
building with the help of the
mayor.
In addition to paying
teacher salaries out of her
own pocket, Brunberg creat-
ed the Right To Learn
Foundation to help sustain
the effort. Funded through
private donations, it provides
additional funds for supplies
and extra salaries.
Recently Brunberg made
two presentations, at
Unitarian Church in Venice
and the Elsie Quirk Library in
Englewood, to help raise
funds for a much-needed
van to transport children to
and from the school.
Brunberg just returned
from a two-and-a-half
month visit to the school in
Nagarote, where she taught
students and attended to the
every day tasks it takes to
keep the school running.
Villagers held a special
birthday celebration to thank
Brunberg for her dedication
to the children and struggling
families of Nagarote.
Brunberg provided the fol-
lowing update.
Dear Patrons,
I arrived in Managua, the
capital of Nicaragua, on Jan.
21.
As usual, I was met by all
10 teachers and the school


director who traveled by our
old school bus. This is always
a very enthusiastic moment,
greeting each other after a


year's absence. It was my
thirteenth trip.
I usually stay in the
school, but this year the
director, Rosario, offered me
a place in her home, which
made my stay far more com-


fortable. The first week was
filled with teachers and
meetings.
School opened Feb. 1


with approximately 200 stu-
dents. A dedicated group of
teachers made it a smooth
beginning.
The first and second
grades had more than 40 stu-
dents but fortunately each


teacher had a helper.
The school operates from
preschool (3-year-olds)
through fourth grade, with


double sessions.
In the morning we have
preschool, first and second
grades. In the afternoon we
have kindergarten, third and
fourth grades.
The school day begins at


7:30 a.m, when the last bus
load of children arrive.
Stragglers continue arriving
until 8 a.m. At 8:30 a.m. there


is a break for bread and milk.
After lunch they return to
their homes and the ones
who go by bus disembark,
while new ones embark for
the afternoon classes. The
school day is over at 5 p.m.


Children take turns trying to break a pifiata outside the school's library.


Education in third worlds
is primarily aimed at copying
what is on the blackboard.
-However, I successfully
introduced small-group
teaching this year. The
preschool and kindergarten
are following a Montessori
program, instituted this year
with the help of visiting
American Linda Sheets, a
psychologist from Sarasota,
with all students grouped
together. This gives the
opportunity for older ones to
help the younger ones.
In first grade we have
established reading groups,
with a small handful going
into the library to read with
their teacher.
There is considerable dis-
crepancy at this age, so
grouping is very valuable and
hopefully less children will
have to repeat.
Graduates of fourth grade
now attend a governmental
school. We bought many of
their supplies: uniforms,
shoes, socks, notebooks and
pencils. A local cement com-
pany donated backpacks.
On the whole, children
like coming to school. They
have toys and games that
they don't have at home plus
they receive meals in a com-
fortable environment.
I feel every year we have
learned from our mistakes
and are becoming more suc-
cessful.
I don't believe there ever
was any time in history when
the need to help third world
nations was more urgent
than now. Our situation is
precarious and so is the gov-
ernment's. This is where we
can help as people to people.
It's a big responsibility
when there is so much
poverty.

Your Office Coa(


question: A manager who -
works for me won't take
breaks, lunch hours or
vacations. I tell her to take
time off, but she never, does, so
'I sometimes pay her a bonus
for the extra hours. Although I
keep asking her to delegate,
she refuses to do so. I have
hired people to help her, but
she hates to let go of anything.
I frequently find important
work in her office that has not
been completed. She often
;] volunteers for new projects,
but never finishes them. She
loves to socialize and con-
stantly interrupts employees
to talk about personal matters.
I don't want to let her go,
because she is a very nice
person, and training a replace-
ment would take a long time.
Please help! Desperate
Answer: Let's sum this up.
You have a management


employee who socializes too
much, distracts employees
with personal conversations,
fails to finish projects, won't
delegate and leaves important
work undone. She may be a
nice person, but she's an
absolutely horrid manager.
In return for this disastrous-
ly poor performance, you have
paid overtime bonuses and
hired people to help her. Do
you realize that you are
rewarding the very behavior
that you want to stop?
You may wonder why the


ch: Stop
woman is ignoring everything
you say, despite the fact that
you're her boss. Perhaps it's
because you've been wimping
out on your management
responsibilities. As a manager,
you must clearly communi-
cate job expectations to
people who work for you. And
if they refuse to meet those
expectations, then you need to
take steps to correct the
situation. In short, your job is
to be sure that other people do
theirs.
So start thinking of yourself
as the boss, then act like one.
Tell this manager that you
value her contributions, but
she needs to take your
requests seriously. Explain the
problems created by her
behavior, clearly describe the
changes you expect, and let
her know what consequences
will follow if she fails to

Q question: Is my small
business required to
comply with regulations that
big businesses are subject to?
Answer: The Sarbaries-
Oxley Act of 2002 focuses on
enterprise and public
companies, and the majority
of small business do not
have to heed the new rules.
The exceptions are small
businesses that expect to
become acquired by a
publicly held company and
small businesses that
provide products or services
to large corporations. In the;
latter case, the large corpora-
tions must work with their
small business suppliers on
compliance.
Even if you're not on the
SOX radar, you can still
benefit from initiating your
own version of the security
requirements of SOX. A lot of
SOX regulations make good
security sense that can
protect your company
regardless of its SOX status.
1. Determine who's in


This column draws advice from more
than 10 established experts providing

charge of security. Even a
small company can desig-
nate a "chief security officer"
- perhaps the most tech-
savvy senior manager who
will be responsible for
reports and recommenda-
tions to be shared with
management, investors,
employees, consultants, and.
contractors.
2. Create policies for the
full scope of security. Policy
statements and guidelines
should influence the way you
conduct your everyday
business. Consider these
questions as you develop


your very own security
policy:
Do our security policies,
such as business conduct
guidelines for Web usage,
apply to everyone in our
supply chain?
Do policies extend to
contractors, suppliers,
customers, and business
partners?
Are all parties connecting
into our network conforming
to the same security policies?
3. Will a natural disaster
affect our security and IT
assets? Take the time to write
out a few worst-case scenar-


ios and the response your IT
manager should take. If you
live in California, for exam-
ple, build IT security into
your earthquake plan. Make
plans to have this available
to the next person in charge
if you're away when disaster
strikes.
4. Be prepared for the
unseen costs of a security
breach. Discuss with your
lawyer how damages to your
company from a security
breach can show up as a
restatement. Some recom-
pensable damages include:
Loss of electrical power
Cost of rebooting critical
locations
Cost of labor to handle
damage from blended
malicious attacks
5. Integrate Internet
security with physical
security. Include the chief
security officer visibility in
your company's overall
security planning. In the
