Student exchange



program criticized

A candidate for office said she's had a bad -
experience with the host organization, but a local
representative accuses her of playing politics.


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER


A person familiar with
Global World International's
student exchange program
disputes its claim that last
week's stranding of Spanish
students without local spon-
sors was its first such inci-
dent.
The Gondolier Sun. report-
ed Wednesday that 10 of 19.
exchange students from Ma-
laga, Spain, had arrived for a
one-month visit without host
families.
Andres Estirado is CEO of
the sponsor, the Tilesa Agen-
cy, which operates as Global
World International in the
United States. He attributed
the problem to a coordinator
who had failed to secure
proper hosts, and then quit.
After the article ran, eight stu-
dents were placed in local

"I can't believe they said
that this has never happened
before," stated Elizabeth Cue-
vas-Neunder, candidate for
Florida House District 70, at
the Gondolier Sun office
Thursday. "Five years ago I
was asked to take in a student
at the last minute. This orga-
nization is making fools of
our county, our state and our
nation. They think we are
idiots."
She said the child she took
in was presented to her as
without a home. The organi-
zation told her that the child,
a girl, would have no family to
stay with if she did not help.
"She was a special needs
child that required a special
diet and we were living 10
miles away at the time,"
Cuevas-Neunder said. "We

Exchange students from Malaga, Spain, work on their English
at the Jacaranda Library Monday. The program that brought
them to the United States came under fire Thursday from a
child-safety advocate who is running for office. '


The vaunted Rails to Trails nature trail
project may have just had a stake driven
through its heart.
The United States Coast Guard said the
railroad trestle over Shakett Creek, a linch-
pin for the trail, must be removed because
it is "unreasonably obstructive" to naviga-
tional traffic.
"I don't feel this is anything new," Jim
Christman, former president of the Raise
the Bridge Committee said. "Look, if you
go back a ways, the Coast Guard had con-
tact with CSX (former owner of the rail cor-
ridor) and issued the same warning the
trestles need to be removed and the coun-
ty went into it (bought the corridor) know-
ing that." ,

the Coast Guard also stated the railroad
bridge is "substandard" for pedestrian traf-
fic.
-The fate of the other trestle over Roberts
Bay is still undecided.
According to the Coast Guard, the tres-
tle has not been used for more than a
dozen years.
The Rails to Trails project stretches
roughly 12 miles from the Venice Train
Depot to Clark Road.
Forewarned is forearmed
A year ago, Sarasota County officials did
not believe they would have to do what the
USCG said, that iS, make the trestle height
conform to the new Dona Bay Bridge
height (about 12 feet), according to an ear-

While federal and state
authorities argue about how
to enforce conflicting "im-
paired waters" definitions
about pollution standards
and rules that require com-
munities to clean them up,
Sarasota County is investing
heavily in a project that could
help resolve a long list of local
problems.
It is shelling out $861,000
to develop a computerized
pollutant loading model that
can identify what the natural
nutrient levels of local waters
should be, and collecting up-
to-date water samples to
determine what they actually
are. Two firms have been
hired to deliver the goods,

"We are working with the
U.S. Environmental Protec-
tion Agency and Florida De-
partment of Environmental
Protection on Basin Man-
agement Action Plans that
will confirm what our situa-
tion is," explained Jack Mer-
riam,.the county's water qual-
ity manager.
Outdated?
A federal court has ordered
the EPA to enforce the U.S.
Clean Water Act of 1972 and
require communities to clean
up water bodies that have
been identified as polluted.
The federal agency is working
with a 1998 list known as
"303D" that state officials in-
sist is outdated.
"Our objective is to con-
firm what the problem is in

area waters on that '98 list
and provide current data the
state wants," Merriam said.
"One of the challenges is
there are no minimum state'
standards for nutrients, so we
have to look at levels of things
.such as chlorophyll-a."
The county has 18 months
to come up with cleanup
plans the EPA and state agree
on.
"Our pollutant loading
model will be county specific
based on our topography and
soils, "Merriam said. "The
Southwest Florida Water
Management District is split-
ting the cost with us."
Finally
When Congress adopted
the Clean Water Act, it was
hailed as an environmental
landmark and signaled state
legislatures they were legally
obligated to "restore and
maintain the chemical, phys-
ical and biological integrity of

the nation's waters."
The EPA was specifically
authorized ordered to oversee
cleanup programs through-
out the country and see to it
that state lawmakers enacted
the necessary laws to scientif-
ically test surface waters and
determine whether they were
"impaired."
In 2001, a consortium of
environmental organizations
filed suit against the EPA
when they determined it had
not only failed to hold Florida
accountable for enforcing
water quality standards, but
that it had allowed state offi-
cials to alter them.
When the 11th U.S. District
Court of Appeals in Atlanta
directed the EPA to review its
procedures and crack down
on states that weren't enforc-
ing the law, it identified
Florida as one that had low-
ered standards to get im-
paired waters off the 303D
list.

Last July, at the court's
direction, the EPA finally ac-

changed its standards for: 1)
water quality criteria; 2) bio-

shellfish assessment; 5) toxic-

Sampling
It is against this back-
ground of court challenges
and squabbling agencies that
the county must move ahead
with plans to clean up a long
list of area water bodies, most
of which have nutrient prob-
lems directly related to nitro-
gen overloads from fertilizer
runoff. They include: Alligator
Creek (nutrients); Blackburn
Bay (nutrients); Catfish Creek

THIS WEEK IN VENICE HISTORY


BY RAY PORTER
STAFF WRITER


The owner of the Venice
Newstand, Don Bellefleur,
attempted to join the ranks
of the Venice Area Chamber
of Commerce recently but
was rejected by the Better
Business Committee, appar-
ently because members of
the committee were con-
cerned over reports that the


newsstand sells pornograph-
ic literature.
Richard Brown, chairman
of the committee, sent a letter
to Bellefleur informing him of
the committee's decision. In
the letter no mention was
made of the reasons for re-
jection, but it did note the
chamber would be willing to
disclose that information
and even reconsider the ap-
plication in the future.

Feds file civil rights


suit against county


over housing

Agency lawyers allege the county officials
unreasonably denied housing for disabled.
Barring a settlement, the case will be argued
at the federal courthouse in Tampa.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Justice Department civil
rights lawyers have followed
through on their threat to
charge Sarasota County with
housing discrimination
against disabled individuals.
They have filed a lawsuit
at the U.S. Court for the
Middle District of Florida in
Tampa.
On June 30, the federal
law enforcement agency an-
nounced it will prosecute the
county for refusing to allow
Renaissance Manor to ope-
rate six homes known as
Tammi House in Warm
Mineral Springs for individu-
als with mental illnesses and
a history of substance abuse.
"The- residents of these
homes should not be refused
an equal opportunity for
housing in their community,"
said Wan J. Kim, assistant
attorney general for the Civil
Rights Division. "The Justice
Department is committed to
preventing such housing dis-
crimination."
The six houses on Sevilla
Street provide a supportive
environment for up to six
residents, but are otherwise
similar to other houses in the
community. County officials
determined they violated the
zoning code because there is
not 1,000 feet of separation
between them.
In addition to discrimina-
don, the suit also alleges the
c6unrv retaliated against Ren-
aissance NManor by refusing
to release previously a'ward-
ed grant funds. It also seeks
monetary compensation for
the victims, civil penalties
and a court order barring
future discrimination.
'A lock'
If the county is found guil-
ty, lawyers representing Ren-
aissance Manor are waiting
in the wings to sue for dam-
ages, lost operating revenue,
$10,000 for each of four resi-
dents, and an estimated
$130,000 in legal fees. A civil
penalty could drive the total
tofmore than $2 million '"
Sarasota resident Richard
Alpher, a retired Justice De-
partment employee and for-


mer county planning com-
missioner, said county legal
representatives will have their
hands full with Justice De-
partment lawyers if the case
is not settled out of court.
"Mr. Kim is a brilliant and
hard-nosed lawyer, and the
Civil Rights Division litigators
are tough," he said. "Maybe
our lawyers here think that
ultimately we can back them
off. The Civil Rights Division
rarely loses, if ever, once it
goes to court, which is usually
why settlements occur."
Alpher worked for the Of-
fice of Inspector General.
"I dealt with the Civil
Rights Division, inspected its
operations and made rec-
ommendations for improve-
ments," he said. "I know how
the' division works. It does
not file a court suit unless it
feels it almost has a lock on
winning."
Andrea Steinacker, a hous-
ing and civil enforcement
'trial attorney, is the Justice
Department's lead counsel in
the case against Sarasota
County. Christopher Han-
back, a Washington, D.C.,
lawyer with, the firm of
Holland and Knight has been
hired to defend the county.
History
In late May, Sarasota attor-
ney Tom Icard unsuccessfully
attempted to mediate a settle-
ment between federal and
county lawyers that would
have .a\erijd .a high-profile
Iriaf over decisions h'at were
made about Renaissance
,Manor and the Tammi House
residents.
The complex known as
Tammi House is co-owned
by Renaissance Manor and
Coastal Behavioral Health-
care. Each house.is rented by
Renaissance Manor to a
maximum of six unrelated
people who are either men-
tally ill, or in recovery from
alcohol or drug dependency.
Tammi House has been in
business for 10 years. It re-

The junction of U.S. 41 Business and U.S. 41 Bypass has taken on a whole new look as construction progresses to widen the
bypass and improve the intersection. There will be intermittent lane closures on U.S. 41 in both the northbound and
. southbound directions between Bird Bay Drive and Bay View Parkway (north of the Shakett Creek bridge) through July 8.
Northbound lane closures will occur between 10 p.m. and 6:45 a.m. Southbound lane closures will occur between 9 p.m.
and 6:30 a.m. One lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction during lane closures.,

In July 2004, the county
notified Renaissance Manor
that the six houses would be
classified under a Florida law
as "community residential
homes," and as such must
not be located within 1,000
feet of each other.
In October 2004, the coun-
ty' board of zoning appeals
heard testimony from Warm
Mineral Springs neighbors
who were opposed to the
.,aTmmOiPHose operation, and
voted to. uphold the determi-
nation that houses must
have at least 1,000 feet of
separation.
Based on those decisions,
the county refused to release
grant funds previously award-
ed to Renaissance Manor.
The refusal resulted in other
grant money being withheld


that wasn't administered by
the county; Renaissance
Manor charged discrimina-
tion.

ed Warm Mineral Springs,
interviewed Tammi House
residents and reviewed the
2004 determinations reached
by Chief Building. Official
Paul Radauskas and Zoning
Administrator Mary Beth
Humphreys and approved by
Assistant County Attorney
Gary Oldehoff.
On Dec. 15, 2005, theJus-,
tice Department announced
the county would be charged
with discrimination unless
an out-of-court consent de-
cree is signed that includes
an admission of guilt, apolo-
gies, fines and changes in
county regulations that con-
form with federal law.

Big-hearted family opens



arms to exchange students


BY KELEIGH KNABEL
GONDOLIER SUN INTERN


When the foreign exchange
students from Malaga were
looking for homes last week-
end, one family opened their
home to four children.
Harvey Davis, program co-
ordinator for Tilesa Agency,
realized that due to an error
of the program coordinator
in Tampa, the students had
no place to stay, so he gave
JackWheeler a call.
"He asked me if I could
take in two kids for the
weekend," Wheeler said.
Wheeler instantly agreed
even though they' were not
planning on hosting students
this year. He thinks the pro-
gram is wonderful.
Later, Davis called Wheeler
back and asked if he could
take in one more student.
"I told him I would, but
the kid would have to sleep
on air mattresses," Wheeler
said, "I just didn't have an-
other bedroom."
Davis said that in this type
of emergency, that sleeping
arrangement would be fine
until they found the children
other homes.
SThen Davi$ asked if the
Wheelers would mind taking
in yet one more student, for a
total of four for the weekend.
How could they say no?
So four students stayed
with the Wheeler family over
the weekend. Two of the stu-
dents were assigned to their
host homes on Monday and
Tuesday. Ana Rivas, 15, and
Pepe Garcia-Herrera, 16, were
still staying with the family
by midweek, but now Ana is


the only one left. Pepe has
been placed in a home.
The Wheeler family has
participated in' foreign ex-
change programs for the last
three years.
Last year, they hosted a
student from Vietnam and
a student from Venezuela for
an entire year.
A whole new world
The Wheelers have worked
with with two programs for
hosting students. One pro-
gram finds homes for students
for one month and one for
students staying one year.
Families sending their chil-
dren across the seas put their
faith in the agency in finding
homes. These families do not
personally know who their
children will be living with,
but instead trust the com-
pany to place the students in
appropriate homes.
For the year-long students,
the agency sends a repre-
sentative to check out the
homes before they place the
children. They pick homes
they think will match up
well with the students in the
program.
"Last year, the girl we got
from Viemam loved to play
the piano," said Wheeler,
"and we have a piano, so
she was placed in our home."
The Wheelers still get e-,
mails about twice a year
from their past month-long
students and receive frequent
e-mails and phone calls
from their year-long stud-
ents.
Jack Wheeler said the pro-
gram -is good for a working
family because students are'


occupied from 9 a.m. until
5 p.m., while most families
are working.
A working family plan
The agency has the stu-
dents taking English classes
from 9 a.m. until noon and a
special side trip every after-
noon until 5 p.m. Side trips
include things such as kayak-
ing, visits to the Ellenton
Outlet Mall and other things
Floridians would do.
On Friday, the kids take a
special trip to a place like
Busch Gardens or Universal
Studios. The last Thursday
in the month, the students
take a special camp-over trip
.to Disney. The host family
gets a break that night.
So far, the students are
having a great time. in Florida.
At a cost of 3,000 euros,
which equates to about
$3,800, the month-long learn-
ing excursion seems worth
it to them.
The students like the.
beach the most because their
beach has very dark sand
and the water is very cold.
An interesting part of their
stay is the difference in time.
Where they come from,
meals are eaten at 3 p.m.
and 10 p.m., and families
sleep until 10:30 a.m. on
weekends.
Neither Ana nor Pepe has
a pet at home due to space
constraints. They live in what
they call flats, which are
similar to New York-style
apartments.
The Wheelers have acreage,
and Ana is enjoying the vast
yard area and the household
pets.


Runway improvements begin


STAFF REPORT

Runway 13/31 at Venice
Municipal Airport is closed
due for rehabilitation, which
will take approximately four
months to complete.
In the meantime, all avia-
tion traffic will use Runway
4/22. Pilots are notified by
the Federal Aviation Admin-
istration through its Notam-
to-Pilots process.
The airport received a
grant of about $3.6 million
from the FAA's Airport Im-
provement Program funds,
and about $93,000 from the
Florida Transportation De-
partment. The airport enter-
prise fund pays another
$93,000. APAC Southeast Inc.
is the contractor.
The rehabilitation of the
runway, which has been de-
teriorating for several years,
includes improvements to
the basic structure of the


5,000-foot long, 150-foot wide
runway. Runway edge lights
and other safety improve-
ments are included. The re-
habilitation does not in-
crease the size of the runway
or change its use.
Improvements for Runway
4/22 are in the design phase.
The airport is owned and
operated by the city ofVenice
in compliance with federal
aviation regulations as part
of the nation's transportation
system. It is funded by the
airport enterprise fund,
which is completely separate
from the city's general fund,
and must generate its own
income from sources other
than ad valorem taxes.
Two years ago, Venice City
Council passed a resolution
stating, "The existing airport
will remain in its current
location and will not be
moved."
The formal action was


based on information pro-
vided in a report from
Dufresne-Henry Inc., an avi-
ation consulting firm hired
by the city to update the air-
port master plan in the late
1990s. The plan is required
to be updated at regular
intervals.
The consultant reported
in 1998 the results of a
conceptual airport analysis
showed the cost in 1997 dol-
lars to move the airport from
its existing location would be
about $68 million. In March
1998, the council authorized
staff to continue the planning
process of the existing air-
port.
Resolution 2004-26 was
passed on July 27, 2004, by
city council as a reinforce-
ment of the decision of the
earlier council not to move
the Venice airport.

More Laurel properties in development


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Another sign of the times
is evolving on 9.1 acres of
land behind the Race-Trac
gas station in Laurel, 541 feet
east of U.S. 41 and south of
Spencer Avenue.
The site of two single-
family homes until their sale
a year ago, the property is
destined to become a com-
munity of 80 townhouses
when, and if, the necessary-
approvals are granted. They
would come from Sarasota
County and the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District.


A petition to increase
building density from six
units to nine per acre was
approved several weeks ago
by the county planning com-
mission and by the board of
county commissioners in
June. The county and Swift-
mud must approve storm-
water drainage plans, 'and
the county must approve
building design and site plans
before construction can begin.
Rick Griffith of FOG De-
velopment, the Sarasota com-
pany that will build the com-
munity, predicted it would
take at least 24 months be-
fore the necessary approvals
are obtained,, and construc-


tion can begin.
He said that FOG hopes
to build units of 1,600 to
1,700 square feet in area.
Each of several buildings will
have a garage and rise to 35
feet at mid-roof. That will
make them two stories high.
Earlier this year, further to
the southeast in Laurel, on
Laurel Road, another devel-
,oper proposed a residential
community on the site of 'a
horse farm owned and oper-
ated for many years by the
Skelton family. It would in-
clude 92 condominiums in
14 two-story buildings on 19
acres, and 20 more on an
adjoining 4.9 acres.

TRESTLE ... 1A
spokesman for the Venice No-
komis Waterways Improve-
ments Association, a water-
front and homeowners group.
So the county purchased
t, corridor.
Salentine said the county
was given up to a $150,000
discount off the purchase of
the rail corridor to raise the
trestle as stated in the closing
statement.
'"And, they were told prior


to the purchase that raising
the trestle on Shakett Creek
had to be done," Salentine
said then. "Staff (county) now
feels they don't have to raise
the trestle and can keep the
money (discount) and do
with it as they please."
Christman has little sym-
pathy because the county
now appears to be behind the
8-ball.
'A prudent person, a ratio-
nal person, should under-


stand the concept of buying
damaged goods," Christman
said. "They bought damaged
goods, they were aware of it
and for them to whine now
doesn't make any sense.
"The county played politi-
cal games and they lost on
the bridge over U.S. 41 and
they've lost on the trestle."

recent state decisions to lower

OUR VIEW



Florida needs to consider north-south toll roads


Why should Southwest Floridian resi-
dents care about new major corridors
being envisioned today by members
of Florida's Turnpike Enterprise? Because the
new roads will not only help unclog Florida's
interstates but, more important, would pro-
vide other hurricane evacuation routes to
help us escape from oncoming storms
should we choose to do so.
According to a recent story in the Naples
Daily News, the Southwest Florida Regional
Planning Council got a preview when offi-
cials from Florida Turnpike Enterprise pre-
sented the concept of the Heartland Parkway
- a new toll road that would start at State
Road 82 near Fort Myers and end at Interstate
4, southwest of Orlando, a total of 110 miles.
Another toll road labeled the Heartland


Coast to Coast was proposed that would
begin south of Tampa at Interstate 75 and
travel to 1-95 in St. Lucie County.
We agree with Florida Turnpike Enterprise
spokeswoman Pam Richmond when she
said, "New corridors are needed to sustain
Florida's economy."
And there's another reason in our opinion:
With about 300,000 people moving to Florida
each year, it is obvious we must plan how we
are going to help people move around the
state more effectively.
Each of these new toll roads is primarily
running through rural areas of Central
Florida. While some folks living in those rural
areas are saying "not in my back yard," we
have to agree with Lee County Commissioner
John Albion when he pointed out that there


just is nowhere else to build new toll roads.
Before too many rural residents become
too concerned, a whole lot has to happen
before these two toll roads can become a
reality.
Numerous meetings have to be held with
local officials in the counties that would be
affected, as well as meetings with residents to
obtain their input.
There is no funding for the $2.5 billion to
$3 billion Heartland Parkway and a study will
be taken to see if the tolls alone could pay for
the superhighway or if other steps would
have to be taken. Even if you use the $2.5 bil-
lion figure, that's more than $22.7 million per
mile.
Besides the cost of the project, if local gov-
ernments favor the parkway they would have


to change their comprehensive plans, no
small task in itself.
Just to illustrate how large a project this
would be, Randy Fox, planning manager for
Florida Turnpike Enterprise, said that if all
funding were in place and and other details
were ironed .out, work could not start for
another 10 years.
Whether it's 10 years or longer, we encour-
age our state lawmakers to support these
proposed new toll roads as much as possible
to someday make them a reality.
One thing is fairly certain: People will con-
tinue to move to Florida in large numbers, so
we need to prepare for that in as many ways
as possible.
Most certainly roads have to be at the top
of the list.

'The long-anticipated dis-
covery of Noah's Ark was
announced on June 16, 2006.
The unusual object is perch-
ed on a slope 13,120 feet
above sea level.
Led by explorer, adventur-
er and featured Worldview
Weekend speaker Dr. Bob
Cornuke, a 14-man crew re-
turned from Iran bearing
stunning evidence that theirs
is the coveted 'discovery of
Noah's Ark.
One of the crew observed
that the "beams not only look
like petrified wood, they are
so impressive that they look
like real wood." It was not
mentioned whether Elvis was
sighted there as well. Believe
it or not!
According to Al Gore's new
film "An Inconvenient Truth,"
we are in for a "planetary
emergency": melting ice
sheets, huge increases in sea
level, more and stronger hur-
ricanes and invasions of trop-
icat diseases, among other
disasters, unless we change
the way we live now.
Mr. Gore, in an interview
with George Stephanopoulos
on ABC, stated "the debate in
the scientific -community is
over."
When pressed a bit by Mr.
Stephanopoulos, he defend-
ed his claims by noting that
scientists "don't know ... they
just don't know." Believe it or
not!
The couple known as
"Brangelina" (Angelina Jolie
and Brad Pitt) have been
unofficially designated by the
world press as the greatest
humanitarians, since Albert
Schweitzer. Believe it or not!
The New York Times re-
ported that our defense
department has been covertly
tracking the banking activi-
ties of enemy arms dealers to
learn where the arms are
coming from and where they
are going.
When questioned as to
whether it felt that reporting
this information undermined


our government's war on ter-
ror, it replied it was more
important that this informa-
tion be made public.
The fact that the foreign
arms dealers are also now
aware of the covert activities
of our defense department
did not seem to trouble the
New York Times editors.
When asked who supplied
them with this secret infor-
mation, they said that they
would not divulge that infor-
'mationf. Believe it or noi! i
': "Ellen' Goodman wrote' a
column stating that inheri-
tance taxes are a good thing
and should not be abolished.
Her reasoning for this conclu-
sion was that Paris Hilton
would not be a deserving re-
cipient of the millions of
bucks she would inherit from
the Hilton Hotel fortune. Are
we now basing eligibility of
tax-free inheritances on mor-
als or lack thereof? Believe it
or not!
Moving along to another
scion of great wealth and
fame, Congressman Patrick
Kennedy maintained he
could not recall any of the cir-
cumstances surrounding his
recent automobile accident
in the early morning hours in
D.C. He said he did not recall
taking any pills, going to bed,
getting up or driving his car.
He did know for certain
though that he had not con-
sumed any alcoholic bever-
ages. Believe it or not!
On May 17 the defense
department announced that
a roadside bomb containing
sarin nerve agent exploded
on an Iraq roadside near a
U.S. military convoy. Sarin is a
colorless and odorless gas
and is lethal in doses as small
as 0.5 milligrams. It is 500
times as toxic as cyanide. This
weapon of mass destruction
discovery was virtually ig-
nored by the press. Believe it
or not!
The votes are in. We can
desecrate the American flag.
However, U.S. military prison
guards at Guantanamo Bay
prison better dare not touch a
page of the Koran. Believe it
or not!
Fortune magazine has
named Sarasota the "best
place for singles over 55" to
meet. Believe it or not!

County takes environment seriously


Editor:
I would like to respond to Ms. Sampieri's letter to the editor
on behalf of Sarasota County's Natural Resources and Resource
Protection staff.
We completely agree that "the incidental taking of animal
life is cruel and inhumane." We have many dedicated people
who spend thousands of hours protecting our wildlife to avoid
situations that leave wildlife at risk.
While in many cases we do avert habitat destruction, gaps in
protection can exist and sometimes result in negative impacts.
We find it as unacceptable as you do. Sarasota County has
recently changed our permitting process to ensure a proposed
take is appropriately scrutinized.
As we reviewed and updated the county's comprehensive
plan, which establishes priorities for the next seven years, we
identified opportunities to increase protection of wildlife.
Those updates will:
Strengthen the policy that coordinates our actions with the
agencies that enforce wildlife protection regulations.
Previously, applicants did not need to demonstrate proof of
coordination prior to site activity. The revisions require that
they do.
Broaden the protection significantly to include all listed
species, not just those designated as threatened and endan-
gered. This change will allow protections for "species of special
concern," such as gopher tortoise.
We are developing code revisions that will be presented to
the county commission this fall to incorporate the updated
policy and adjust county regulations to ensure wildlife protec-
tion needs are considered on a full-time basis.
Our challenge is providing the right balance in protecting
the wildlife and habitat and meeting the needs of a growing
community. It is a challenge we take seriously and accept every
day.

Iraq War still has
support of majorities
Editor:
I assume that legislators,
prior to casting their vote on
highly controversial issues, go
out of their way to gauge their
constituents' sentiment lest
they risk being booted out if
they vote against their con-
stituents.
Let us recall then that in
2003, Congress not only


Republicans but also more
than half the Democrats -
overwhelmingly approved
President Bush's invasion of
Iraq.
The American public has
had ample chance to digest
the reality that the cost of the
war has included the lives of
2,500 servicemen; to hear
abundant war critic argu-
ments; and to debate ad nau-
seum the issue of whether the


president used the excuse of
weapons of mass destruction
in Iraq to unnecessarily take
us to war.
Yet, this year, on June 17,
the House voted to support
the president's course in Iraq,
256 to 153, a comfortable 60-
percent majority, again in-
cluding most House Demo-
crats.
And in the Senate on June
22, Sen. John Kerry's resolu-
tion on pulling out of Iraq was
defeated 86 to 13, a 66-per-
cent majority, once again
including more than half of
all Democrats.,
Notwithstanding, a few
vocal activists, as well as
much of the media, still con-
tinue to angrily rant their vile
opposition to the way our
government is conducting
the war.
The question then arises of
whether a few anti-war pro-
testers and their allies in the
"mainstream" media are
indeed in touch with main-
stream America.
How many of us do they
claim to be speaking for?
Obviously very few, albeit far
louder than their numbers
would warrant, with much of
the media serving as their
amplifying megaphone.

money being lost because it's
not being collected for fire
impact fees. It's a shame,
especially with all the new
construction in that area, it
needs to be collected. Every-
body has to pay up, but they
didn't. And marinas. There's a
little park down by Four Bays
that might make a nice little
kayak launching pad right
there, or a boat launching pad
area. There's a little park right
next to Bob Vedder's place
right there on Bay View
Parkway. It's hidden from the
general public, there's not
parking there. Maybe they
should open it up for some
more parking there and use it
for boat launching or kayak
launching and utilize it a little
bit more.
Shame. Why work for $7.50
an hour before taxes being a
bridge tender when you can
get more out of welfare than
you can working for a living.
In other bridges in other
counties, they start them out
at $9.50 an hour. This county,,
they claim, is the cheapest
county there is. Try telling that
to the residents. There is
.absolutely no benefits, none.
No vacation, no holiday, no
sick leave, no insurance, no
401K, no nothing. $7.40 an
hour before taxes they
should be ashamed of them-
selves. I expect to see this
printed.
Hoodwinked. While the
taxpayers of Sarasota County
have been hoodwinked so
have the teachers of Sarasota
County and the school em-
ployees. We all worked very
hard to pass the referendum.
Dr. Norris said that we needed
the money in order to keep
things status quo. Let me tell
you, John Q. Public, things are
not status quo. There are
major, major cuts in our
sVhool system, j nourschools,
idi our teaching staff, in ofur

work so hard for a referen-
dum to keep it status quo
when the school board is cut-
ting and cutting? Are there
cuts being done at the
Landings? I don't think so. Are
there cuts being done in the

think so. Our children are
going to suffer and this is,
exactly what he told us would
not happen.

Many of us have a lurking
fear that one day, when we
least expect it, someone from
the IRS will show up on our
doorstep and tell us we've
been chosen for an audit. The
income tax law is so complex,
even if we tried our best, we
still might not have done the
tax return right.
Wouldn't it be great if the
IRS offered a service that
audited your tax return for
free, if you volunteered, and
promised to waive any inter-
est or penalties for any mis-
takes it found? Each year you
would know that your taxes
were in good shape and you
would never need to worry
about being audited.
If you are basically an hon-
est taxpayer, you might wel-
come a voluntary audit that
would forever seal your
return as approved as long as
penalties and interest were
guaranteed to be waived. Of
course, if you pushed the
envelope, you would avoid
the IRS even if the audit was


voluntary.
If you are a business, there
is a good chance you live in
fear of an audit by OSHA -
the Occupational, Safety and
Health Administration. This
government agency audits
businesses to make sure they
are complying with the occu-
pational safety and health
rules governing businesses.
OSHA has the ability to
fine businesses that are out of
compliance. If you run a busi-
ness that is interested in stay-
ing in compliance with OSHA
rules, wouldn't it be great to
have a voluntary audit, where
penalties were automatically
waived as long as you agreed
to make any changes recom-
mended?
Fortunately, there is such a
service. The Charlotte Sun
production facility on Har-
borview Road in Charlotte
Harbor recently underwent
such a voluntary audit.
The University of South
Florida has a program more
fully described at safetyflori-
da.usf.edu that is 90 percent
funded by OSHA. Professor
James E. Ulseth came by to
see us and to help us review.
our safety plan.
The service was free and
the only condition was that if
he found any violations, we
had to fix them. This report is
for our own use and is not
reported to OSHA enforce-
ment.
One benefit of the volun-
tary audit is that if we are
called by OSHA for an audit,


we need to let them know that
we had the voluntary audit
and that we fully complied
with all changes recommend-
ed. OSHA generally accepts
that audit in lieu of conduct-
ing its own.
The USF program not only
helps with free voluntary
safety audits but also helps
businesses create safety
plans. In our case, we volun-
teered for the free audit
because first and foremost,
we want our employees to
operate in a safe environ-
ment.
The physical plant is the
area most folks think of first.
Safety awareness and educa-
tion are also important.
Last year we had more
than $300,000 in workers'
compensation claims. That is
more than.$1,000 for each of
our full-time employees. This
is money that should have
,gone to our employees as
wages.
Most of the workers' com-
pensation claims were simple
items turning and picking
up a box the wrong way for
instance.
By getting the voluntary
audit and some help with
safety education, we hope to
redirect that money where it
belongs: into our employee's
pockets.

Prosecute dirty pols
Editor: ''
If Caesar's wife must be
above reproach, what about
state and local government
officials when they carry out

the public interest be served
when its importance is not
paramount with some public

What can we do to 'reign in

tions.


1. Make known your views
by writing or e-mailing your
government officials. Tell
them that their service to the
public interest takes com-
plete precedence over any
kind of personal enrichment.
2. Strengthen the Florida
Commission on Ethics by giv-
ing it power to investigate
governmental officials, who
profit, fro, their, posjQiaQns.
Remove, the roadblocks that
prevent the commission from
initiating its own investiga-
tions.
3. Require more specific
information on Florida's fi-

Empower the ethics commis-
sion to randomly audit finan-

4. Create a Public Integrity
Section within the Attorney
General's Office to prosecute


government officials accused
of personal enrichment.
Enactment of these pro-
posals would go,a long way to
improve both the reality and
perception that the public
interest is not only honored,.
but strictly observed by Flor-
ida's government officials.
These suggestions will not,
of course, solve all questions
involving .conflict, of interest
issues. There are andwill be
instances where it will be dif-
ficult to determine whether
there is a conflict. Let's at
least, begin dealing with the
egregious cases. Keep always
in .mind what President
Reagan said regarding the
Soviets, "Trust but verify."

Ecowater has




million-dollar plans


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Can Simply Pure Florida
follow the success of Venice-
based Vinyl Tech (now PGT)
and Tervis Tumblers? Kenny
and Kena Gibson are con-
vinced they have found a new
opportunity that will take
their local company-Ufto the
multi-million dollar business
league.
Following .careful research,'
due diligence and skillful ne-
gotiating, a partnership with a
major manufacturer was
reached and they have been
appointed the Ice Combo
Plus distributor for Florida.
Encouraged by learning
Simply Pure had taken Cal-
ifornia by storm with 3,000
units operating in three years
in the Anaheim market, the
Gibsons see big opportunities
for the future throughout our
state.
It was 1998 when the Gib-
sons launched Absolute Wat-
er Management, 22 S. Venice
Blvd., Venice, with three em-
ployees. They supply residen-
tial and commercial cus-
tomers with Ecowater water
systems, softeners, pressure
pumps, tanks, and reverse,
osmosis systems installed,
under sinks. The company
has seen growth every single
year with current annual rev-
enue of more than $1 million
and 10 employees.
"We're really excited to be
in' at the -beginning ofs the;
te'li th Simrtply Pure,"'said!
Ken Gibson.
ABS has set up a new divi-
sion to be the Simply Pure
retailer for this area with a
separate wholesale subdivi-
sion for the state of Florida.
Already wholesale indications
are very encouraging with a
lot of dealer interest to sup-
port ABS' plan to sign up 30
dealers to service counties
and cities statewide.
On the residential side, in
Sarasota, Charlotte and Man-
atee counties the ultimate
vision is sales of 5,000 units
annually from the Venice
location.
Multi-tasking
The Ice Combo Plus is a
free-standing unit with push
buttons for water at varying
temperatures and ice cubes.

Likewise, the auto-fill ice

Such high efficiency means
the user never wastes water or

An Ice Combo Plus is
hooked up to water from any

of producing 80 gallons daily;
most commercial and office

years ago to live their dream
on a house boat.
."I gave up my job with a
major grocery chain, we sold
everything and moved to Fort
Myers Beach," said Newman.
Interested in plantation
shutters, they realized there
was an opportunity in Venice
and opened Sunshine Shut-
ter Gallery, 756 Commerce
Drive, Suite 2, Venice.
Using three years' experi-


ence in Fort Myers, they have
built a state-of-the-art equip-
ment assembly plant with a

The property has been reno-
vated and three-fourths of an
acre landscaped.
Owner Christine Merrill is
from New Jersey, where she
had 15 years' experience with
children in different fields
before moving to Sarasota.
Realizing the need for anoth-
er day care center when she


had difficulty finding facilities
for her own children, she de-
cided to open her own early
learning center and chose
Nokomis to support working
parents in the area.
"Our day care center is not
just a drop-off for babysitting,
because we educate the kids
starting at the infancy stage,"
commented Merrill.
Hours are 7 a.m.-6 p.m.
Monday through Friday, with
breakfast, lunch and snacks
provided. In the fall she has
plans to start gym, music and
computer classes for the
older children.
With 20 spots open, Merrill
has five full-time employees
experienced with children
and plans to increase the per-
sonnel as more children par-
ticipate in the center's activi-
ties. Call 586-2265.

Accident prevention is better than helmets


NAPLES DAILY NEWS


Chuck Aylsworth said he
credits a motorcycle helmet for
saving his life back in 1986.
At the time, he was sta-
tioned in North Carolina as a
member of the U.S. Marine
Corps. While pulling out of a
parking lot, he was struck by a
car and flung onto a four-lane
highway.
It was a scary situation,
and Aylsworth, now 40, said
he thinks the helmet helped
absorb some of the contact.
Twenty years after the acci-
dent, he still rides, and while
one would expect him to con-
tinue to wear a helmet, that's
not always the case.
The helmet has been cum-
bersome when he's aboard his
Harley-Davidson Sportster. His
peripheral vision is at times
blocked, and it can causeprob-
lems. So there are times he
.chooses to go' shI~ rihelfil
unless he's going on a long trip,
riding on the highway.'
And Aylsworth is not alone.
At least not in Florida, where
state law does not require a.
helmet. But some officials say
the lack of helmets is not the
problem for motorcyclists; it's
accident rates themselves.
Since 2000, state law re-
quires only those younger


than 21 and those without an
insurance policy providing at
least $10,000 in medical ben-
efits to wear helmets,
One too many
The most recent statistics
from the Florida Department
of Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles show that since Flor-
ida's helmet law was repealed
in July 2000, the state has seen
an increase in motorcycle
deaths from 227 in 2000 to
388 in 2004. Injuries alone
increased from 4,476 to 6,558.
But the increase cannot be
attributed only to a lack of
helmets. During the same
time period, motorcycle en-
dorsements in the state rose
from 421,786 to 638,002. And
there are more, than 780,000
licensed riders in the state.
The increase of motorcy-
clists does not make the statis-
tics better, said Frank Penela,
spbkesmnan' f6t tht'1' ttYid1
Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles.
Just one death on the roads'
is too many, regardless of how
much the state is growing, or
how many more riders are on
the road, Penela said. More
than the helmet issue, it 'is
important to stop accidents,
he added.


Rider error
The presence of, or lack of
a helmet does not affect the
accident rate. Accidents
themselves are attributed to
many things, including road
conditions, but are generally
split down the middle be-
tween rider error and other
motorists making mistakes,
said Sgt. Dennis Petracca of
the Lee County Sheriff Office's
traffic unit.
"The majority of riders are
pretty responsible, but there
are a few who push the limit,"
Petracca said.
It's those who push the limit
and ride irresponsibly that fuel
the argument that all riders
should wear helmets, said Dr.
Ed Szerlip, a Florida field repre-
sentative for the American
Motorcyclist Association.
Szerlip, a rider for nearly 60
years and member of the
Motorcycle Doctors Associ-
ation, said the choice of ahel-'
met should be left up to an
individual rider. Though he
says he always rides with a
helmet, the AMA takes a neu-
tral stance on helmets,
though it is adamantly
against the government en-
croaching on that decision.
"There is no question that
motorcycles are dangerous,
but so are a lot of other things


we do," Szerlip said.
Helmetless drivers are not
as common as it is perceived,
said Sean Zola, president of
Florida MotorSports. Zola
estimates nearly 100 percent
of all riders of sports bikes
wear a helmet. Helmets are
less common on cruiser
bikes, such as Harley-David-
sons, with about 40 percent of
riders wearing one.
High-profile incidents such
as the crash of helmetless NFL
quarterback Ben Roethlis-
berger in early June make it
seem like the problem is more
widespread, Zola said.
Encouragement
Kathleen Buckley said she
only occasionally wears a hel-
met when riding her Honda
Shadow. Buckley said she
began riding dirt bikes on her
family farm in Kansas about
40years ago. Now50; she feels
she is reopensible'enough lo
go without one on short trips.
What likely is a bigger
problem is the way some peo-
ple ride, Zola said. A lot of
younger riders own bikes that
may be too powerful for
them, and they sometimes
ride irresponsibly, weaving in
and out of traffic.
Then there are the other
drivers on the road. Aylsworth

clists being injured.
In his experience, Ayls-
worth said he's had many
people not notice his bike.
They'll often cut him off, or
get too close. There was even
an incident recently during
which a pickup truck driver
was not paying attention and
nearly ran him off the road.
Driver error seems to be
the biggest problem in all
accidents, Petracca said. It's
even more dangerous when a
motorcycle is hit, because
those accidents rarely are
minor, he added.
The issue then becomes
cutting down on accidents.
For that, the state has motor-
cycle safety programs.
And until accidents are cut
down, Penela said, there only
can be a hope that people
heed safety warnings. ., r
Lb'"We 'encourage- everyone
to follow Florida laws, and use
proper safety equipment."

Swim coach

on the way

The good news is, a new
Venice High swimming coach
has been hired.
The bad news is, we can't
tell you who he/she is yet
until he/she tells his/her
former team that he/she
won't be returning. We should
know any day now.
Venice swimming has
gone through a number of
coaches the past couple of
years. Sharon Brownfield left
a year ago. Danielle Tanaka
left because of two toddlers.
Deborah Tweedie has relo-
cated to the Melbourne area.
VHS has a number of
promising swimmers com-
ing back this fall.
VHS is also in the hunt for
a new girls soccer coach. Joe
Ferretti had to leave because
of time constraints with a
new job. There are a few can-
didates out there. Athletics
director Larry Sandburg
wants to wait for school to
start and see if there are any
others interested.
Speaking of soccer, local
soccer fanatic Mike Lasorsa
has just returned from Ger-
many, where he was wowed
by World Cup action.
HATS OFF ,TO .JERRY -
Heq is up at,!4r~nmin:.the:,
morning and drives to the
ball park in the dark. He
turns on the lights, starts
the tractor, grades the clay,
then lines all four ball fields.
He is finished around 8 in
the morning.
Then he mows all four
fields with a 2 1/2-inch cut
so that the ball will roll just
right. Then it is off to clean
the bathrooms and then to
empty the garbage cans.
He then blow offs the
area around the concession
stand. By that time, he is just
about ready to take his nap.
That is his day at the
Chuck Reiter Complex. And
he loves it. Hats off to Jerry
Tesar, head park attendant at
Chuck Reiter.
AWESOME FOOD -
Terry Paynter has done a
super job supplying umpires
with drinks, snacks and
other goodies during the
District 16 Tournament at
Chuck Reiter.
The umpires are all vol-
unteers and do it for the
love of the game.
Juniors, Seniors
set for Saturday
The District 16 Little
League All Star tournaments
for Juniors (13-14) and Sen-
iors (15-16) will begin Satur-
day at Wellfield.

but falls to the losers bracket,
or Sarasota Florida, which
eliminated Central Sarasota,

American and Sarasota
Florida will play at 8 p.m.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice American drew first
blood against rival Venice
National in the District 16
Little League 9-10 year-old
All Stars.
National manager Terry
Tritschler can only hope to
get another crack at the
Americans down the road in
double elimination bracket
play.
Ed Dinka's American squad
captured an 8-3 victory over
National Thursday night in a
pool play thriller going eight


innings.
American improves its
pool record to 5-0. National
is 4-1. Three teams out of
the seven will qualify for
the next round. American
nailed down top seed.
National will -most likely be
second seed.
For seven innings, pitching
dominated with Rhett Dinka

American and Nick Longhi
and Brett Smith throwing
blanks for National.
American finally got the
offense going in the top of
the eighth. Dalton Tritschler


drew a bases-loaded walk to
break a 2-2 tie. Joey Cavallaro
had a two-run single to make
it 5-2. Shambora added a
three-run homer to make the
score 8-2.
American went up 1-0 in

by Danny Barrett. National
went up 2-1 with a pair in
the second. Dan Raynor and

a loop single to plate two
runs.
American tied at 2-2 in the
fourth, using a hit by Barrett

How to catch, steam


and eat blue crabs


MR. SHEEPSHEAD


Mr. Sheepshead was born
and raised in the Baltimore
area.. They say:that babies are
born with a crab mallet-, in
their hand in that area.
Chesapeake Bay country is
definitely the home of crab
eaters.
The reason I'm writing
about blue crabs in a fishing
article is very simple. Our
area happens to be great for
quality and quantity of these
delicious critters.
Back in Maryland, the de-
mand is so high that most
of their crabs come from the
Gulf area. Texas, Louisiana,
Missisippi, Alabama and
Florida are the top states.
I get my crabs two differ-
ent methods. One is to ac-
tually catch them with either
traps or hand lines. The
other is to simply buy them.
Before I forget, the crab-
eating area has expanded
somewhat since my youth.
Now besides Maryland and
Virginia, there are crab
houses in about six or so
other nearby states. These
crab houses are usually
neighborhood bars that cater


to these crab eaters.
Getting back to the catch-
ing: Chicken necks or other
parts of the chicken work
fine. You may add a small
weight to the line. When the
line starts to move or tight-
en, you pull the line in very
slowly. Remember these crabs
are not hooked, so be very
careful not to jerk the line.
Then you dip them as they
come to the surface.
You can also tie several
pieces of bait (fish also works
fine) to a collapsible trap.
Most of the time I buy my
crabs. They must be alive
and fresh when steaming, so
I rush home and put the bag
in my freezer for two to three
hours.
Crabs do not have bl od,"
so this just stuns them and
assures freshness.
'Tihave a rack on the bot-
tom of my steamer to keep
them out of the liquid. I use
abbut a can of. cheap beer
per dozen crabs. I season
them with my generic Old
Bay Seasoning and I sprinkle
dry powdered mustard on
each crab. I cook them on a
medium light for about 35-40
minutes. I never open the
steamer until they are fin-
ished.
We have a' tradition in
Maryland.. One must eat
these crabs with, the Balti-
more Sun Newspaper as the
tablecloth. It gets expensive
having all of those papers
mailed to me.
If you need any more in-
formation about blue crabs,
kindly contact me. Fellow
Sheepsheadites, we'll talk
again next week.

1998 or 941-321-8849.

on Pinebrook Road


Jackie Jones, Sarasota County Croquet Club president, gives a
lesson to the beginners.

Croquet has become quite a hit in the Venice
area thanks to the Sarasota County Croquet
Club'sfacility on Pinebrook Road. The club
offers much to the community in the ways of this
classic sport.


BY KELEIGH KNABEL
GONDOLIER SUN INTERN


Dressed in white, mallets
in hand, they gather in groups
of four or more.
If you've driven down
Pinebrook Road, you've prob-
ablyh seen them playing:cro-
quet. Arid you've probably'
wondered why they're on
Pinebrook Road and not at
home. But you've never
stopped to see.
"Croquet is a great sport
for all ages," Jackie Jones,
president of the Sarasota
County Croquet Club, said,
'And it's a great sport for fam-
ilies."
The Sarasota County
Croquet Club meets every
Tuesday at 10 a.m. and gives
free lessons to beginners. The
club splits lesson-takers into
two groups: those who just


arrived and don't know any-
thing, and those who have
taken a lesson or two before.
After you've had sufficient
training, you are encouraged
to join the SCCC at a yearly
membership fee of $100.
This is relatively low con-
sidering it includes equip-
ment and membership to the
United States Croquet As-
sociation. The fee just for
joining the 'USCA usually
ranges from $35 to $55.
Members receive free instruc-
tion, which otherwise could
cost about $60 an hour.
On Thursday, the SCCC
offers instruction for club
members brushing up on
their skills.
The SCCC is appealing
because most croquet clubs
require members to be a part
of a residential community to
join. The SCCC is open to


HOWDOIPLAY?
In American six-wicket croquet, a player must go through each
wicket in order. Once he has completed all six wickets one
way, he must propel his ball through the wickets again in
reverse order. Each ball sent through a wicket scores one point
and pegging out (hitting the end peg with the ball) is worth
another point.
At the beginning of the game, four colored clips correspond-
ing with the colored balls are attached to the top of the wicket.
Once a player has scored that wicket, he takes that clip and
puts it in his pocket. When he is trying to score the next wicket,
he places it on top of that one until it has been scored and so
on.
Each player is allowed one turn to hit the ball. If his ball strikes
another ball, which is called a rush, he is allowed to take two
more turns. He must pick up his ball and place it touching the
ball he hit.
He then gets a shot called a take-off. In that shot he tries to get
his or her ball in position to score a wicket. He then gets one
more try to get the ball through the wicket.
If he does not score, the turn is over. If he makes a wicket, he
has one more turn to hit the ball. He may choose to try to get
the ball in position for the next wicket or try to rush another
ball and get two more additional turns. Strategy is an impor-
tant part of the game.
If a player strategies enough, he can score all wickets and peg
out without even letting the other player have a turn.
At the end of a 75-minute game, whoever has scored the most
wickets wins. However, if one player has completed all the
wickets without allowing the other player a turn and pegs the
pole in the middle of the field, that player automatically wins
regardless of time.
Jackie Jones and Fred agreed that croquet requires much
hand-eye coordination. They compared it to pool for the
angles and chess for the strategy.
Golf croquet is much more social and fast-paced than six-wick-
et croquet. In golf croquet, each player gets one turn to hit the
ball. Once a player gets his ball through the wicket, the game
moves on to the next wicket. The game is played through
seven points.
To learn more about the fine points of croquet, spend some
time at the Sarasota Croquet Club course on Pinebrook Road.
You provide the white clothing and they will provide the
equipment.
For more information, call Jackie Jones at 484-3206.

Two more experienced players practice before they start a game.


anyone who wishes to play
croquet.
In 2003, the USCA named
the SCCC "Croquet Club of*
the Year" for its rapidly
increasing numbers. They
then had 75 members. Now
the club has 164 white-wear-,
ing croquet enthusiasts.
Sarasota County
Croquet Club
In croquet, a player scores
a point by using a mallet to hit
a ball through a wicket.
Wickets are only wide enough
to allow the space of a dime
on either side of the ball while
it is passing through.
There are six wickets on a
field.
The club orders its wickets
from North Carolina and its
mallets from Canada or
England. Mallets range in
price from $80 to $450.
Croquet balls are made of
hard plastic and weigh about
1 pound. The mallets are 36
inches long and usually made
of wood. They weigh about 3
pounds.
The field is 105 feet by 84
feet and is marked off by a
white string. This flat bound-
ary'line allows players to hit
their balls right from the edge
of the "greensward," the
proper name for a croquet
field.
The youngest member of
the SCCC is in her 30s while
there are many members in
their 80s.
Right now, a main goal of
the USCA is to target a
younger crowd.
"Young people tend to pick
it up and learn fast," Jackie


said. "They're more adven-
turesome."
Some colleges are starting
to offer croquet teams, which
may help contribute to the
younger crowd.
The game is good for older
players, too. It requires bend-
ing and walking to keep play-
ers in good shape.
Men and women compete
equally because it is not a
game of power.,
To play croquet, flat-soled
shoes are required. Closed-
toe shoes are highly recom-
mended.
"If you're wearing sandals
and someone hits a ball hard
you could really hurt your
foot," Jackie said.
Members are required to
wear white. First-timers and
those taking lessons may
wear whatever color they
choose, but white is your best
bet in staying cool.
The club always offers food
and refreshments after its
afternoon croquet game.
Joneses' croquet history
Jackie and Fred Jones start-
ed playing croquet in 1988 in
Newport, R.I. As an anniver-
sary present, Jackie bought
Fred a croquet club member-
ship.
"I was already retired," said
Fred, who worked in sales.
"But Jackie was still working
full time. I like to say she quit
her job to play croquet."
Jackie used to tag along to
a lot of the tournaments to
watch her husband play. By
doing so, she learned the
rules and the strategies of the
game very well.


And of course, just like the
SCCC, the players she was
watching always urged her to
play.
Now Jackie Jones is the
best woman croquet player in
the nation. She's held that title
for the past 8-9 years and is in
the top 10 players overall.
She plays a few times a
week, and at one point she
had her handicap down to
zero, an impressive feat.
At Jackie's level of play, she
competes more often against
men. She has noticed an
increase in the number of
women players.
Fred is on the National
Committee for Croquet and
,he is the representative for
the Florida region, the largest
region in the nation at 800
members. He is also a nation-
al croquet referee.
Recently he was inducted
into the Croquet Hall of
Fame.


A league of their own
When the Joneses moved
to Venice in 1990, there was
no place for them to play cro-
quiet. They made a deal with
Mike Miller, the developer of
Waterford, allowing them to
use some of the undeveloped
land to build a croquet field.
That facility lasted five years
before the undeveloped land
needed to be developed.
After that facility was no
longer there, croquet players
had to travel as far as Port
Charlotte to find a croquet
field, and then they had to
share it with other sports
players. The croquet players
of Venice wanted their own
facility.
Since Jackie is club presi-
dent, she was in charge of
communicating with Jack
Colligan, the parks manager
of Sarasota County. Jackie had

B CE GONDOLlER S N


The three lives of a '47 sportsman ,


BYVICTURNER
GUEST WRITER

Little did I know that what
happened in the spring of
1951 would stay with me for
so many years. Working as a
24-year-old for New Jersey
Bell and just having finished
lunch at the Extension Diner,
something caught my eye on
this beautiful spring day.
It was a top-down, drop-
dead beautiful '47 Sportsman
pulling into the used car lot
next to the diner. The black
beauty with real leather in-
terior showed only 7,500
miles on the odometer and
as noted by the salesman,
"had just come out of stor-
age" and was not for sale
"yet." We exchanged tele-
phone numbers and I left
having a great feeling some-
thing would happen. It did.
The Office of Price Ad-
minstration price controls
were still in effect and the
National Automobile Dealer's
Association book showed a
figure of $50 less than thee
asking price, but after paying
the premium I received the
title and drove "Woodie"
home to the garage my dad
was not using.
My brother Don then be-
came owner of my '39 Deluxe
Coupe. Our New Jersey sum-
mer family home in
Shore Acres had no garage, so
a "cracker" bamboo pole and
plastic cover had to make do,
protecting "Woodie" for the


next three summers at the
Jersey shore.
The fall of '54 found me
back at the same used car
dealer to trade the Sportsman
in on a '53 Ford Vickie. Even
-though the "Woodie" was
maintained and in great
shape, it was 8 model years
old. The public had been
"turned off to wood," said the
dealer, and he offered a low
ball price. I decided to lay
the car up and to sell in the
spring, better known for its
convertible weather. I still
came home with the '53
Vickie.
Well, spring came and
summer waned, and there
was no sale despite advertis-
ing in the NY Times and
putting the car on consign-
ment at our local friendly
used car dealer's lot until
Labor Day.
It must have been fate
working when I drove "Wood-
ie" home to the enclosed car-
port, where it stayed for the
next 6 years.
Joan and I married in 1956
and moved to a new ad-
dress with an oversized 2 car
garage in 1960. Life was good.
Now fast forward to 1972
for an update on the Sports-
man, which had been stored
at a new address and is now
a (gasp!) antique. We went
to several Horseless Carriage
Club meetings, hit up car-
happy area Hershey, Penn-.
slyvania, joined the EFV8 Club
and then Tom Garretts 71


Society and refinished
"Woodie" in '76 despite the
fact that it took several trips
to Postwar Productions Car-
lisle to ignite the interest and
desire to get some work
done on "Woodie," VIN No.
3598. It became our fun car.
After that, we did some
local in-state shows and
parades, New Hope, the '76
Eastern Nationals EF V8 and
class reunions and got great
pleasure with the kids in the
back seat getting-the thumbs
up wherever we went. .It
was never a Trailer Queen,
but was a car to enjoy.
It sure was good giving the
Sportsman a second life, get-
ting it spruced up and road
worthy. It was a joy taking it
out in the good weather of
spring, summer and fall, then
storing it for the cold and
snowy New Jersey winters,
all snug in our heated garage
with car blankets and a cover
on.
After the '76 Eastern Na-
tionals at Valley Forge, my
interest and attention shifted
to '65-'66 Mustangs, 18 of
them in all, convertibles,
notchbacks and fastbacks. My
interest in "Woodie" slightly
died for the time being, and
in this time, the kids had
grown up and I had retired
after 36 years at New Jersey
Bell.
Now I get to do some
work on "Woodie," right?
WRONG. Now we become
"snowbirds" and are spending

more time at our condo
in Florida than at our home
in New Jersey.
Anyway, this brings us to
the third life of "Woodie" in
Florida, just before Hurri-
cane Charlie in August of
'04 where it is secured in a
hurricane proof building. We
now enjoy cruising housing
areas and neighborhoods of
Sarasota County, the odom-
eter showing only 49,860
miles.
Joan and I are going to
enjoy the top-down fun of
local shows and cruise-ins
from Bradentoni to Punta
Gorda. At a meet; in Venice,
recently there seemed to be


a sound of contentment
from the 59 AB flathead, an
expression for, a Ford motor
made between '32 and '53, as
we tooled home to our con-
do on the Gulf.
So with the top down,
battery cut off and parked
overnight, it seemed so fam-
iliar to this 79-year-old that
we had come full circle to
the 24-year-old at the Jersey
shore, covering "'Woodie" for
the night and not knowing
what tomorrow would bring
or where this old friend
would take us.
The quotation "Yesterday
is history, tomorrow is a
mystery, today is a gift, that


is why they call it the
present" pretty well sums up
the three lives of our '47
Sportsman.
Not too shabby for two
kids from the Jersey shore
celebrating our 50th wed-
ding anniversary.
Now for the hard part
and future life that lies
ahead for "Woodie." Joan
and I have decided to pass
on the keys. to someone
who will give "Woodie" a
new home and continue his
restoration.
So in the meantime, if
you see Joan and me tooling
around, give us a "thumbs
up." Life is good.

Are you a widow? You are not alone


BY LESLIE YARD
GUEST WRITER


Transitions and unexpect-
ed responsibilities in life cause
fear, frustration, confusion
and loneliness. Widowhood is
one of those transitions. We
don't want to ,think about
widowhood ahead of time,
and when we find ourselves
an unwilling member of that
"group," we do not want to
admit its unpleasantness. But
widowhood IS a reality, and


there IS a place to find ans-
wers to many confusing fi-
nancial and emotional ques-
tions. That place is the Wom-
en's Resource Center of Sara-
sota County in Venice.
The Women's Resource
Center of Sarasota County
was founded 26 years: ago to
provide support for women
in transition. Through' their
many programs they provide
a setting for growth, friend-
ship and nonjudgmental sup-
port, to help women relieve


stress, relearn happi-ness,
methods of coping and the
finer details of an indepen-
dent life.
One program the Venice
office is having every week is
a Widow to Widow group.
This group of women helps
members gain, perspective
on their new life role. It's a
setting' to work onf pitfalls
brought on by this new role,
and brings women together
for growth and friendship.
Being involved will relieve


your fears and provide re-
sources to answer many of
your questions.
If you are lonely, lost, or
just have some questions,
please join Widow to Widow
2-4 p.m. Monday at theWom-
en's Resource Center Venice
office at 806 Pinebrook Plaza.
It is an ongoing group, meet-
ing evety Mon-day, and .may
be joined at any time.
Please call for information
or to sign up, 485-9724. It
could be your best first step.

SUZY COHEN, R.PH.
COLUMNIST


Q: A friend of mine, who is a
nutritionist, says I should eat
avocados to reduce my risk for
heart disease. My doctor says
not to eat them they're too
fatty. Can you settle this and tell
me what to do? T.P., Tulsa,
Okla.

A: Sure, but what kind of
answer do you think you'll
get? I love avocados and
believe that the benefits far
outweigh the fat content.
Technically, both your
nutritionist and your doctor
are correct. Avocados are
high in calories about 200
calories for half a cup,
according to the USDA
Nutrient Database. Between
70 and 90 percent of the
calories in avocados are
fr6m fat, but it's "monoun-
saturated" fat, which lowers
cholesterol and subsequently
your risk for heart disease.
It's the same with olives and
olive oil.
The avocado beats all


other fruits (yes, it is a fruit)
in beta carotene and potassi-
um content. If you are on
certain diuretic drugs and
have been told to eat a
banana or drink orange juice
daily for potassium, you
should know that avocados
are even better they
contain more potassium
than both bananas and OJ.
For diabetics, avocados -
also called "alligator pears"
because of their shape and
skin are a great choice
because they don't contain
a lot of sugar or starch.
Avocados contain heaps
of protein, potassium, folic
acid, thiamin, riboflavin,
biotin, niacin, pantothenic
acid, vitamin E and vitamin
K. Two other nutrients stand
out as crucial to health. The
first is beta sitosterol, which
may ease symptoms of BPH
(benign prostatic hypertro-
phy). Guys, you may end up
needing medicine costing
hundreds of dollars a month,
but one avocado will set you
back about a dollar and lab
analysis shows that avocados
contain about 76 mg beta
sitosterol per three and a half
ounces of raw, edible fruit.
I'm not suggesting dollops
of guacamole on top of
meat-stuffed cheese burritos;
I mean sliced-up avocados
on top of a salad.
The second nutrient in
avocados is glutathione.
You need glutathione to stay
alive and process dangerous


Venice Gondolier Sun




WELL BEING


byproducts in the body. We
produce it, but aging, certain
drugs and disease conditions
wipe it out. Avocados contain
15 to 20 mg of glutathione
per three and a half ounces.
Glutathione is so helpful to
the liver and digestion that
studies have shown a cor-
relation between eating
glutathione (from fruits and
veggies) and a lower risk for
cancer, specifically oral and
pharyngeal cancer.
Glutathione may be
depleted from the body by
many drugs, including aceta-
minophen (Tylenol), and
depletions can cause joint
pain. If you take this medica-
tion, it's good to supplement
with glutathione, or eat lots
of foods that contain it.
Don't try this at home, but
isn't it fascinating that certain
parts of the avocado tree,
leaf, skin and seeds have
been pulverized, roasted or
otherwise concocted for
use over the centuries to
treat intestinal parasites,
wounds, neuralgia, hyperten-
sion, sore throat, menstrual
problems and even as an
abortifacient?

lons of blood are cleaned by

How to control




your diabetes for life


Controlling blood glucose can save
your sight, your limbs, and your life.


STAFF REPORT


Here's what researchers
know about controlling blood
glucose (blood sugar) in peo-
ple with diabetes: It's not easy,
but it can be done. It takes
hard work. And it can save
your life. '
An important new study
by the National Institutes of
Health (NIH) shows that
tight control of blood glucose
can reduce the risk of heart
attacks and strokes the
number one killer of people
with diabetes by more
than half.
For most people with dia-
betes, keeping blood glu-
cose under tight control
isn't easy. The latest data
from the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention
(CDC) suggest that fewer
than 45 percent of Amer-
icans with diabetes are
reaching the level of control
seen in the NIH study. But
it can be done, and the
National Diabetes Educa-
tion Program (NDEP) has
materials that can help.
The National Diabetes
Education Program's Control
Your Diabetes. For Life cam-


paign materials teach people
with diabetes how to know
their ABCs what their A1C
(a test of blood glucose),
Blood pressure, and Choles-
terol numbers are, what they
should :be, and how to work
with their health care team
to reach those goals. The
materials also offer ideas for
sticking to a healthy eating
plan, ways to stay active with
regular physical activity, and
other tips for feeling better
and staying healthy.
NDEP materials are easy
to read, and available in
English, Spanish and in 15
Asian and Pacific Islander
languages. They have been
tailored for groups at high
risk for diabetes, including
American Indians and Alaska
Natives, African Americans
and Hispanics/Latinos. And
all NDEP materials are bas-
ed on science, backed by the
federal government, and
copyright free.
For people with diabetes,
controlling blood glucose -
along with blood pressure
and cholesterol can save
their sight, their limbs and
their life.

Researchers \
have come to the
surprising conclusion that healthy
nerve fibers, not damaged ones,
contribute to persistent pain. This
finding would seem to be contrary to
common sense, which would point to damaged
fibers as being the ones primarily associated with
chronic pain. Researchers now have more reason
to scrutinize intact nerve fibers when developing
new treatments for back pain and other chronic-
pain conditions. Among the factors to be studied are
never cells called nociceptors, which are, in effect,
'"damage detectors." When activated by disease or
injury, they send electrical impulses to the brain. The
faster these undamaged nociceptors fire electrical
impulses, the stronger the chronic pain. This finding
underscores the necessity of keeping an open mind
when conducting research.

Was it murder? Or was it
natural selection simply
weeding out a weakling un-
able to compete in our con-
sumer world? Or was the
electric car just ahead of its
time?
The documentary "Who
Killed the Electric Car?" may
not have the answer, but it
makes for a lively, informa-
tive whodunit about an
energy-efficient vehicle that
debuted with fanfare and
went out with a whimper.
Soaring fuel prices make
director Chris Paine's film
irksomely relevant as it lays
out suspects in the demise
of General Motors' EV1:
Potentially complicit parties
include automakers, oil
companies and govern-
ments.
The film makes a fine


bookend to 'An Inconvenient
Truth," the current docu-
mentary hit chronicling for-
mer Vice President Gore's
campaign against global
warming.
"An Inconvenient Truth"
is an alarming classroom
warning about catastrophic
climate changes potentially
looming from the buildup of
fossil-fuel emissions. "Who
Killed the Electric Car?" hits
at street level, an infuriating-
examination of corporate
and public indifference to
consumer desire.
Paine was among drivers
who leased an EV1 from GM
in 1998, joining a list of elec-
tric-car enthusiasts that in-
cluded Tom Hanks, Mel Gib-
son, Ted Danson and other
celebrities. (Gibson contri-
butes some hilarious inter-
view segments.)
The cars were sleek, futur-
istic two-seaters powered by


batteries that could be re-
charged overnight at home.
The vehicles were most
prevalent in California,
which had enacted laws re-
quiring automakers to begin
putting zero-emission cars
on the road. After lawsuits
and lobbying by automak-
ers, California eventually
softened the rules, and the
EV1 and other companies'
prototypes for electric cars
started vanishing from the
highways.
The film depicts a com-
.munity of drivers clearly in
"love with their EV1 cars, yet
'"GM refused 6o renew th6
leases or let consumers buy
the vehicles outright. As
leases expired, there was a
gradual roundup the EVls
bound for a crushing facility
in the desert.
A GM spokesman con-
tends demand was insuffi-
cient. Paine's film counters

with a prolonged vigil by
former EV1 drivers outside
a parking lot in Burbank,
Calif., where about 80 of the
repossessed cars were stored.
A coalition of drivers offered
$1.9 million to buy the cars,
but GM declined, sending
the vehicles to the crusher.
"Who Killed the Electric
Car?" indicts pretty much
everyone in the car's demise
- auto companies whose
huge stake in repair parts
could be undermined by
low-maintenance electric
cars; oil companies whose
profits hinge on fossil fuel;
the California Air Resources
Board; governments pushing
other unproved technology
such as hydrogen-fuel cells;
even consumers in love
with gas-guzzling SUVs.
It's a fun road trip for
moviegoers who like to
shake their heads in disbelief
at our consumer culture.

The Break-Up
The Break-Up starts where most

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 lat-
est "why can'tyou 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 follows is a series of
remedies and undermining suggest-
ed by the former couple's friends,
confidantes and the occasional total
stranger. When neither ex is willing to
move out of the condo they used to
share, the only solution is to continue
living as hostile roommates 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 fighting for
isn't so much the place but the right

An Inconvenient Truth
Featuring a once-defeated Al 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 ferret-
ing out Gore's motivations the
film's lesson makes it a must-see,
but witnessing the man who was a
hair away from the presidency toting
around his own luggage is a bonus.

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 mysteri-
ously cropped up right through the
middle of their home. Enter RJ, an
opportunistic raccoon, 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
jealous of RJ, the ever-cautious
Verne wants to keep his blended fam-
ily 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.

HOROSCOPE July 7-13


ARIES (March 21-April
19). Your incredible
patience pays off ... wait a
minute. You? Incredibly patient?
OK, well, relative to your nor-
mal tolerance level for the
feeling of anticipation, you're
patient.,

STAURUS (April 20-May
20). Your work helps
people, and therefore,
you help people. Usefulness is
the highest compliment. You
won t waste time parting your-,
self on the back. You're on to
the next thing and the next
thing and the next thing.

GEMINI (May 21-June
21). People like to lis-
ten to the pleasing,
confident sound of your voice.
This is a good thing because
the more people who listen,
the more fans, love interests,
friends and clients you acquire.

.- CANCER (June 22-July
C4; 22). You are very close
to success. Don't give
up! If your plan doesn't seem
to be going well, don't bail
on the mission. You're not the
judge right now time is, and
time has not spoken its side
yet.

LEO(July 23-Aug. 221.
Your impulses guide
S.." you to safety. From
what, you're not sure.
Hopefully, these impulses
aren't based merely on what is
comfortable, because all the
good stuff is outside your
comfort zone.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22). Inside each per-
son is an older, wiser
voice and a whimpering 2-
year-old. Your maturity could
assault your youthful whims
now in such a way that makes
you unsure which way to go.
The planets favor the kid.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). You have occa-
sion to pause and
wonder take it, lavish in
it, love it. Such a magical
opportunity is not rare by any
means, but it is hardly ever
observed and scarcely taken.
Be the exception.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-
Nov. 21). Your
creativity is a whirling
entity conspiring with the
universe to better your life in
every way. There's no time
for questions. Go where the
spirit moves you. Trust
yourself. Also, you can trust
a Pisces.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21). Powerful
personalities sway
you. Consider yourself
impressed. This is not to
say that you must do what
anyone says. You're your
own person, always have
been.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
^ Jan. 19) Fearless
moves take you into
new territories safe ones
leave you frustrated and
much the same as last week.
If you're hanging out with
silly birds ruffle some
feathers.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18). Forget about
being practical for a
day. Wishing can make it so,
no matter how adamantly the
reasonable part of you objects.
Let your dream win, and let
a Leo help.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March
j 20). Love is in the
stars, and especially
. for those Pisces people who
have been experiencing a dry
spell. It starts by thinking
someone close by is 'cute."
You're right about that.

Dead Man's Chest

Prepare for safety awareness during a storm
tI


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
weather disasters.
"After severe weather is
gone, electrical hazards can
still cause deaths and in-
juries," noted Brett Brenner,


The Electrical Safety Foun-
dation International presi-
dent. ESFI warns consumers
to beware of electrical dan-
gers associated with downed
power lines, portable electric
generators and electrical
wiring or appliances that
have been wet. These precau-
tions can help:
* Use care when stepping into
flooded areas-whether indoors
or out. Submerged outlets,
electrical cords, and downed
power lines can energize 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 9-1-1.
* Do not drive over downed
power lines.
* Have electricians install
portable electric generators
to ensure they meet local
electrical codes and are prop-


early grounded. Improperly
installed generators can
"backfeed" along power lines
and electrocute crews work-
ing to restore power.
* Keep the generator dry. Do
not operate it in enclosed or
partially enclosed areas.
Generators produce deadly
carbon monoxide.
* Do not overload a genera-
tor; follow the manufacturer's
instructions carefully.
* Use a ground fault circuit
interrupter to help prevent


electrocutions.
* Do not use electrical wir-
ing or equipment that has
been wet. Contact a qualified
service repair dealer to recon-
dition electrical equipment; a
licensed electrician can in-
spect electrical systems.
* To avoid lightning strikes,
stay indoors and away from
windows during storms.
* During electrical storms,
do not use corded telephones
except for emergencies.
* Avoid contact with water


and plumbing during electri-
cal storms.
* If outdoors during electri-
cal storms, move to a low
point. Stay away from metal
items.
* Don't forget pets during
thunderstorms. Doghouses
are not safe from lightning.
Chained animals can easily
become victims of lightning
strikes.

Habitat fundraisers


are burgeoning


ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST


My time is split between
the South Venice Civic
Association activities and my
dedication to Habitat for
Humanity of South Sarasota
County. Its offices are at 280
Alligator Drive, just down the
street from our SVCA com-
munity center.
Today I want to tell you
about a few of Habitat's
fundraising activities in
progress..
I have the privilege of
chairing the Development
Committee of HFH, the com-
mittee that seeks out ways' to
pay for the houses that HFH
builds for low-income fami-
lies. Here are some of the
activities:
The Venice Area Board of
Realtors has committed to


raise $85,000 to build one
home for Habitat. It has sever-
al monthly fundraisers during
its monthly get-togethers and
social activities.
Opening Doors for Habitat
is a contest to artists to paint
interpretations of art on
doors, juried by the Venice Art
Center. The art, will be auc-
tioned off on Sept. 29 at the
Venice Art Center. The pro-
ceeds will help btiild the VABR
home.
The Sarasota County
Homebuilders Association
just completed its blitz build
that built three houses in
North Port in one week. The
amazing thing is that the
builders not only contributed
their labor but contributed all
of the materials. They prom-
ised to do the same thing next
year.
In October, they will con-
duct a Cocoanut Run fund-
raiser that you will hear about
soon; please support that
activity and enjoy the day. .
And watch for. the
Habitat/Tennis Clinic Exhi-
bition hosted by the Venice
Courtside Tennis Club. This
will be a major event with'
professional tennis players

Youths set sail for adventure

BY RACHEL ALEXANDER
STAFF WRITER .....Y,.. .. M .C.


Twelve teens with Engle-
wood Junior Sailing, a youth
sailing program put on by the
Englewood Sailing Club
through the Englewood
YMCA, have chosen to take
Mark Twain's advice.
Twain, one of America's
most popular authors, once
wrote: "Twenty years from
now you will be more disap-
pointed by the things you did-
n't do than by the ones you
did do. So throw off the bow-
lines. Sail away from the safe
harbor. Catch the trade winds
in your sails. Explore. Dream.
Discover."
Young sailors recently
caught the wind in their sails,
explored, dreamed and dis-
covered, but not out of the
safe harbor. At least not yet.
Just as rains from the outer
bands of Tropical Storm
Alberto approached Lemon
Bay, the young sailors rigged
several Walker Bay boats for
another session of advanced
sailing at Indian Mound Park.
"Rain won't bother us,"
said John Richter, who assists
with the program and stores
all the boats on his property.
"If there's lightning, that's
when we stop."
There was no lightning, so
despite the rain arriving, the
students went full sail ahead
with their training session.
In the beginning
In order to be in the
advanced session class, all of
the students had to make
their way through beginner
instruction:.
"Our advance is by irwita-
tion," said Bob Hill, the-head,
instructor for the group- aid
vice president of ESA. "They
stay in the beginners until
they're ready."

instructors with the Englewood Sailing Association. The Englewood Junior Sailing is part of the
club, which has beginner and advanced classes.


rigging, basic maneuvers,
parts of the boat and rights of
way when to stay out of
bigger vessels' way, because
they have the first right of
passage, said Tyler Kaub, 15,
and Martin Wolff, 15, who
both shared the information.
. The advanced students are
permitted to go off on their
own in a designated area.
"You can go off by yourself
without counselors," said
Caitlin Powers, an advanced
sailing member.
Several of the students -
Wolff, Kaub, and Samuel
Dolby, 17 have passed cer-
tain, sailing skills and have
passed written rests t1 obtain
instruction ceitificaies. They
are junior instructors to the


other beginner and advanced
students.
Most of the students found
out about the youth sailing
program either by an article
they read or by an announce-
ment through the YMCA.
They got interested in it sev-
eral years ago and have stuck
with it ever since.
"My grandma read an arti-
cle," said Powers, who's just 10
years old and is going from
elementary school to middle
school. "This is my second
time in advance."
Powers said she's been a
resident in Florida four years
and three of those years she's
been sailing! c, i;
She said her-brother start-
ed the course, but didn't stick


with it.
Not the case with Samuel
Dolby, 17, Julao, and Kaub,'
who have also bought their
own Sunfish or Lazer boats.
Floating ads
Several area businesses
sponsor the club by buying a
Walker Bay boat and having
their logos on the sails.
"We have a program where
we can get a complete boat
for $1,000," Hill said. "We've,
had these five years. The sails
have held up very well."
Hill said as long as the sails
hold up, the sponsor has
advertising on the bay.

"New Air Conditioners at Incredible Savings"


The competition would
like to lock me up and
throw away the key. They
don't like the fact that we
are offering industry-
shaking low prices on the
best built, best backed air
conditioning systems
made.
The simple fact is that I
have taken a huge gamble,
and I need to make it
work. I persuaded the
owners of this company
into allowing me a very
large purchase of brand
new 2005 High Efficiency
Air Conditioners and
Heat Pumps. These are
not second-rate systems
but brand new air
conditioners, most with a
full 10 year parts and
labor warranty direct
from the manufacturer.
They are high efficiency
systems with SEER
Rating between 12 and 16
(so your power bills will
go straight down). I need
to sell these 38 air
conditioning systems or


I'm in BIG trouble. To do
this I'm dropping the
bottom out of our pricing.
You will save between
$1000 and $2500 on these
select systems.
I'm talking about real
dollar savings, not smoke
and mirrors.
To even make this offer
sweeter, I am going to
give the first 10 people to
take advantage of this
once-in-a-lifetime special,
a FREE air filter upgrade
and a one-year
maintenance agreement.
The fact is, if you are
considering the purchase
of a new comfort system
in the next two or three
years, you would be nuts
to pass up this
opportunity. My pain is
truly your gain.
All you need to do to get
things rolling is to call
Susan at 800-741-1233 (or
any of our local
numbers). She will have
one of our professional
air conditioning experts


Tom Schulz

OBLIGATION ESTI-
MATE. If things look
good and we get your ok,
then get ready to start
saving. We even have low-

so you can use your
energy savings to help

So the ball's in your

Venice Little Theatre is scaling more mountains


KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Can do
The Venice Little Theatre is
like the little engine that could
- it just keeps climbing up
that proverbial mountain,
higher and higher, expanding
its programs, improving its
offerings, enriching and en-
tertaining Venice day in and
day out.
Coming up in August and
September are two offerings
that you need to buy tickets
for now, because tickets to
these cabaret shows are limit-
ed and will soon be gone. Aug.
4-20, the VLT will present "I
Love You, You're Perfect, Now
Change" and Sept. 1-17, the
show will be "Hello Muddah,
Hello Fadduh!" Shades of
Allan Sherman, thanks to the
VIT we get to return to Campa
Granada, which is "very
entertaining, And they say
we'll have some fun if it stops
raining:"
TheVLT is at 140W Tampa
Ave. Call the box office at 488-


1115.
JOY to the world
Those Salvation Army JOY
(just Older Youth) folks are
going to be on the road in
August for another memo-
rable trip this time it will be
the railroad for a ride on the
Mystery Train out of Fort
Myers. You need to sign up
now because tickets are limit-
ed. You will depart from the
Salvation Army Venice head-
quarters on Albee Farm Road
at 4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25, and
depart from the train station
in Fort Myers at 6 p.m. for the
four-hour, train ride. Enjoy
appetizers and a five-course
meal in a restored dining car
while you attempt to solve the
murder mystery that takes
place on board the train.
The cost is $55 per person
and includes transportation
to Fort Myers. For reserva-
tions, which will go fast, call
484-6227 and ask to speak to
LaVerne.
Foreign exchange
Lillian Clemente of the STS
Foundation is Scottsdale.
Ariz., wrote to tell me that
several high school students
form around the world are
coming to Venice to study and
to live with an American fam-
ily, with the goal of experienc-
ing American culture as an
American high school stu-
dent does. In turn they will
provide insight into their own

culture, beyond the tidbits
that can be gleaned from sec-
ond hand references. This is
the essence of student ex-
change. It is a unique and
vital source of knowledge and
an empowering supplement
to both the American stu-
dent's and the exchange stu-
dent's education and experi-
ence. Clemente said that life-
long friendships often result
from the student exchange.
Reunions are equally
abounding and often in the
exchange student's home
country
STS Foundation, a non-
profit student exchange orga-
nization, helps facilitate these
relationships. It has been
doing so for the past 20 years
and looks forward to finding
new host families in Venice
and connecting them with
exchange students. One ex-
change student is Kim, a 17-
year-old girl from the
Netherlands who'loves draw-
ing, painting and SCUBA div-
ing. Another is Konrad, a 15-
year old competitive swim-
mer from Sweden. He also
likes playing tennis "and
building models. They are
both excellent students and
are very excited to come to
the area. They will have their
own spending money and
insurance.

interested in being a host

hotel developed an exem-
plary best practice reflecting
the highest standards of Ritz-
Carlton excellence in a partic-
ular division."
Hotels are able to compete
for just nine Divisional Cobalt
Awards each year. The Ritz-
Carlton, Sarasota was distin-
guished in the Culinary and
F&B category recognizing the
unique and innovative Ex-
ecutive Service lunch, an
expeditiously-served busi-
ness lunch offering a three-
course meal served in one
presentation, in less than 15
minutes.
"We designed the Ex-
ecutive Service lunch with the
business executive in mind,
said Peter Garza, Vernona
manager. "The goal? A flaw-
lessly executed dining experi-
ence, elegantly expedited. In
other words a great meal, fast.
With the Executive Service
lunch, we have successfully
been able to get people in and
out quickly, while maintain-
ing the quality of food and


service expected from a Ritz-
Carlton restaurant."
Borrowing from the tradi-
tional Japanese bento box
concept, Vernona's Executive
Service lunch features multi-
ple courses served in one ele-
gant "box" or plate, with sepa-
rate compartments for vari-
ous savories and sweets. A
variety of prix fixe menus are
available. The Executive
Service lunches are $22 and
are served in Vernona week-
days, Monday to Friday, 11
a.m.-2:30 p.m. in addition to
the regular Vernona lunch
menu. Call 309-2008.
Named for the beautiful
and grand hotel El Vemona,
built on the very site in 1926,
theVemona restaurant is dec-
orated like a sunny garden
room in an Italian villa. The
menu expresses a passion for
local and regionally grown
organic products. The un-
complicated, flavorful and

J.J. ANDREWS
THE OUT-OF-TOWNER


Newlyweds trek 2,300
miles in an overloaded
Geo and U-Haul trailer
all in the name of
adventure.

"Uhmm, bad idea."
That was the first bit of
advice from our new apart-


ment superintendent, as he
held open the lobby door for
The Wife and I while we car-
ried our rain-soaked mat-
tress. It was a little past 8 p.m.,
we had just completed the
road trip to end all road trips
- Florida to New York: 2,3.00
miles covering 11 states in six
days and we needed to col-
lapse for the night in our new
apartment in Brooklyn.
So we intended to leave
everything else we owned
locked in the U-Haul trailer
hitched to our Geo Tracker
parked on a side street in the
Sunset Park neighborhood of
Brooklyn.
"I will help carry," our
super said in his thick Al-
gerian accent, "but I wouldn't
leave there. S'is safe, here, but
that not good."

discovered, is among the best

a graduate school student

both wanted to chase our

mini-market and Chinese

As a cost-saving move, we
decided to move everything
ourselves. Anything that
wouldn't fit in the back of our
Tracker or the 5-by-8 H-Haul
was sold or thrown away.
And this would've worked
perfectly, also, if we didn't
have to make pit stops in
Missouri and Ohio to pick up
"a couple more items,"

had several items in storage

WICKET from page 1 B


to make a proposal to city
council for a croquet facility.
For the facility to be built, the
croquet players had to donate
$5,000 and build a shed on
the property. Their efforts
were successful and two years
ago they established the facil-
ity on Pinebrook Road.
The fields are on city prop-
erty but are maintained by the
Sarasota County Parks De-
partment. They rent a special
mower to mow the tifdwarf
grass to 3/32 of an inch, which
is an ideal length for tourna-
ment-style play.

rules similar to those in other
sports, but configured differ-
ently. Handicaps are deter-
mined by assigning tracking
points. Players lose tracking
points if they lose a game and
gain tracking points if they
win a game. It takes 28 track-
ing points to get your handi-
cap to drop one-half point.
.The more advanced you
get, the fewer points you get if
you win and the more points
are taken away when you
lose. This makes it even hard-
er to get good.
"If you've never played cro-
quet a day in your life, you're a
20 handicap," Jackie said. "If
you know how to hold a mal-


let and you can spell croquet,
you're an 18."
Occasionally the SCCC
holds tournaments. Limited by
its three-court facility, the tour-
naments usually accommo-
date 36-40 players.
Croquet tournaments usu-
ally last about four-five days.
Nationals lasts about a week.
They play an average of three-
four games per day. Each
game lasts about 75 minutes.
Tournament play uses the
American six-wicket croquet
game rules. (See story on Page
IB for the rules of the game.)
Four balls are used in each
game of croquet. There are
two teams, the blue-black


team and the red-yellow
team. The blue-black team
always plays first. This is
determined by a coin toss. A
multi-colored pole in the
middle of the field shows the
order in which each colored
ball should be played.
Usually games are double-
banked, which means two
games are played on one
court a die 'same time. They
keep the games separate by
using one set of solid balls
and one set of striped balls.
There is more to croquet
than the story of Alice in
Wonderland tells.,Go out and
give it a try for yourself. You
may find it really enjoyable.

Independence Day revisited


BENNETT GROSS
RELIGION COLUMNIST

Two hundred and twenty
years, ago delegates to the
Continental Congress put
their heads in a collective
noose when they signed the
Declaration of Independence
freeing the besieged colonies
from the yoke of England.
It was an act of shared
courage and vision seldom
seen in our nation's history;
not only was a new nation
born but the principles of lib-
erty and justice and equality
for all set the course for a new
direction shining as brilliantly
as the North Star and for
some as beckoning.
Think of it, 'All men are
created equal." A concept so
daring, so different it sparked
revolutions across the width
and depth of Europe. Yet
when Americans had won
their independence, when the
cannons stopped firing, the
issues and divisions that hov-
ered over the land came down
with a resounding thud
threatening the ideas and
ideals embedded in the
Constitution.
The enslavement of others
for profit pitted Northern
states against the South while
in, the settlement of west


native Americans were killed
and swept away like the rem-
nants of a storm. A Civil War
as much about states rights as
individual freedom brought
untold suffering and enor-
mous causalities, leaving
behind a divided people and
an even greater racial divide.
And with the advent of an
industrialized nation came
the issues of labor versus cap-
ital, living wages and humane
working conditions against
maintaining the bottom line
and profits.
In the 21st century another
division emerged the dif-
ferences that exist between
religious groups. Core issues
such as abortion, women's
rights and gay unions have
polarized thinking, creating a
climate of hate and conflict as
well as becoming significant
factors in the way our country
is being governed and our
laws shaped.
Contrary to what some
religious groups believe, our
country's Founding Fathers
never intended one religion
to be supreme or to rule
above all others. Specifically
the Constitution set forth in
the Bill of Rights, Article I:
"Congress shall make no law
respecting an establishment
of religion, or prohibiting the
free exercise thereof."
In 1965 the Catholic
Church set forth a declaration
of its own, an unprecedented
call for tolerance and unity
issued by Vatican II. Called
"NostraAetate," a Declaration
on the Relationship of the
Church to non-Christian
Religions, these excerpts fol-
low:


AJC applauds Presbyterian revised


approach to Middle East peace


STAFF REPORT


"In our time when day by
day mankind is being drawn
closer together, and the ties
between different peoples are
becoming stronger, the
Church examines more close-
ly the relationship to non-
Christian religions. In her task
of promoting unity and love
among men, indeed among
nations, she considers above
all in this declaration what
men have in common and
what draws them to fellow-
shi ."
One is the community of
all peoples, one their origin,
for God made the whole
human race to live over the
face of the Earth." "We cannot
truly call on God, the father of
all, if we refuse to treat in a
brotherly way any man, creat-
ed as he is in the image of
God. Man's relation to God
the Father and his relation to
men his brothers are so
linked together that Scripture
says: He who does not love
does not know God" (1 John
4:8).
"The Church, therefore,
exhorts her sons,, that through
dialogue and collaboration
with the followers of other
religions ... they recognize,
preserve and promote the
good things, spiritual and-
moral ... found among these
men."
Now more than ever is the
time, isn't it?
Shalom.

Bennett Gross is
Communications Chair of
the Jewish Center of Venice
and active in Catholic/Jewish
Studies as well as other
Interfaith affairs.


The resolution, which
passed by a vote of 483-28,
ends the process set in
motion by the 2004 Pres-
byterian General Assembly
singling out Presbyterian
investments in companies
doing business in Israel for
special scrutiny, a policy that
might have led to divestment.
Under the new resolution,
investments in Israel and the
Palestinian territories are to
be subjected to existing "cor-
porate engagement" process
of the church and evaluated
by the same standards 'and
process as other .PCUSA
investments in all other coun-
tries.
AJC also welcomes the
Presbyterian Church's ac-
knowledgement of Israel's
right to protect its citizens as
well as the church's more con-
structive and nuanced ap-
proach to Israel's security
fence, which. has saved the
lives of untold numbers of


The American Jewish
Committee applauds the
decision of the Presbyterian
Church (USA) to adopt a
more constructive and ap-
proach to peacemaking in the
Middle East, changing its
course from its 2004 divest-
ment resolution.
"Three years ago we
reached out to the mainline
Protestant churches to create
a coalition for peace between
Israelis and Palestinians," said
David Elcott, AJC's U.S. direc-
tor of Interreligious*Affairs.
"AJC did not waver from this
commitment even when the
Presbyterian Church voted
for divestment. The decision
at the Presbyterian General
Assembly to roll back its poli-
cies and to endorse construc-
tive investment in peace pro-
foundly validates AJC's com-
mitment to dialogue and-
engagement."

peacemaking efforts," Elcott
said.
David Bernstein, an AJC
official who was in Birm-
ingham for the Presbyterian
Church USA General As-
sembly, said, "We feel confi-
dent that this more positive
approach will strengthen the
Presbyterian voice and bring
us closer in advocating a
peaceful two-state solution in

many thoughtful Presby-
terian friends who showed
great faithfulness to their in-

Bill Wallace reelected as

STAFF REPORT

been reelected as president of
the Sarasota Sister Cities
Association Inc. (SSCA). The
200-member volunteer orga-
nization fosters international
relationships between Sara-
sota and cities that have simi-
lar interests by creating
exchanges in areas of culture,
education, tourism, business
and government.
Sarasota Sister Cities is one
of the oldest programs in
Florida, established in 1963.
The program is an outgrowth
of the 1956 initiative by
President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower who created a people-
to-people "citizen diploma-
cy" program. President Eisen-
hower envisaged persons and
organizations in individual
U.S. cities interacting on a
one-to-one basis with their
peers in foreign cities and
nations, believing that such
personal relationships would
lessen the chance of future
world conflicts.
Honorary chair of the or-
ganization is Sarasota Mayor
Fredd Atkins. Sarasota City
Auditor and Clerk Billy E.
Robinson serves as the repre-
sentative of the city on the
SSCA board.

-- .. Six Steps to Success


Tired of trying to make your way around
that old blender, bassinet, those bikes and boxes of
cast-off clothing? Schedule a garage sale to convert
those extra items into cash.


2. Ask your friends if they want to join in. More
merchandise means more shoppers and more money
for everyone.


3. Clean and polish your items. Fold clothes
neatly and arrange them by size and gender. Group
small pieces (like jewelry) together into plastic bags
so they're easy to price and display.


Arrange fof plenty of tables and hanging
items so you can display everything prominently.
When it's time, set up your sale so people can move
around easily.


SeMake, a list of your best items, and then call
The Sun Classified to schedule your ad. Your ad rep
can help you create an ad that's sure to get customers
calling!


Through The Sun Classified, you'll send the
news of your sale to thousands of potential buyers.
So, get out your change box and get ready to sell!
