Hit-and-run suspect arrested in attic I


DVTnfEIAUV Ail lYUfTlD


DI BuMMi MiINTYRIE
STAFF WRITER

Police and firefighters had
to flush a hit-and-run suspect
out of his attic with a heat-
imaging camera before ar-
resting him.
"He went inside his
(Woodmere) apartment and
wouldn't answer the door,
so they broke it open," victim
Don Dahl, 46,. said. "At first
they couldn't find him so
they looked in the attic with
thermal-imaging and found
him hiding in the insulation."
Florida Highway Patrol
troopers arrested Brent E.
Shaltz, 48, 3800 block Wood-
mere Park Blvd., Venice. He
was charged with leaving


the scene of an accident
without giving information,'
a misdemeanor.
Shaltz- said firefighters
had no choice except to
break down the suspect's
door.
"They thought he might
be injured," Dahl said.
Dahl, a restaurateur from
New Orleans here to visit his
sister, Kathy Powell, said the
incident happened about 6
p.m., July 3.
Dahl said he and his
fiancee had spent the day
fishing and were on their
way back to Powell's house.
The chase
Dahl said he and his
fiancee were coming down


,Englewood Road (SR 776)
and getting ready to turn right
on Jacaranda Boulevard.
"The guy rear ends me,"
Dahl said. "Then the guy
who hits me takes off. His air
bags were still deployed."
Dahl could still drive his
car, so he tried to follow the
suspect.
"He stopped at Jacaranda
and (U.S.) 41, then shot
through the Publix parking
lot and went into the
Woodmere complex," Dahl
said. "He parked his car, got
out and went into his apart-
ment then his car caught
on fire."
Dahl said investigators
think the fire resulted from
impact damage to Shaltz's


radiator.
Dahl said other motorists
quickly realized that Dahl
was trying to follow Shaltz.
"They got out of the
way," he said, "they were
very cooperative."
Dahl said police and fire-
fighters came, put Shaltz's
car fire out and then arrest-
ed him.
Dahl said he and his
fiancee suffered sore backs
and had headaches;

Growth: sleepy communities are waking up


BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER


Conceived as retirement com-
munities, Venice, Englewood, North
Port and Port Charlotte are being
transformed almost daily by the
rapid influx of a younger, more
diverse population.
Recently the Sun held a round-
table meeting attended by a local
Realtor, a banker, a planner and
community leaders as well as Sara-
sota County and North Port repre-
sentatives to discuss these changes.
Held. in the North- Port Public
Library, the discussion ranged from
finding solutions to regional prob-
lems,to where the area is headed in
.the next 10-15 years.
Far from viewing the monu-
mental growth through "rose-col-
ored glasses," all present knew the
way to deal with difficult changes
is to work together, but also to be
flexible. As North Port Planning
and Zoning Director Sam Jones
,said, "at end of day, there's the
potentiality that the plans you see
today will be completely different
tomorrow."
Diversity and demand
When General .Development
Corp. and other developers market-
ed this area 50 years ago, they
pitched it to retirees with dispos-
able income as a sunny, stress-free
and affordable community. Now

The addition of turn lanes on River Road between North Port and Venice is an indication that more drivers will be
traveling that road soon.


there are not only retirees, but
young professionals and families.
'All things fare) going to be
affected by a major influx of people
into what was, a few years ago, a
sleepy community," said Tom
Minnich.
Among other things, Minnich, a
longtime resident of the area, is


president of the South County
Homeowners Associations, vice
president of the Lemon Bay Corp.
and involved with the South
County Assembly of Neighbor-
hoods.
"We are seeing that develop-
ment moving south," Minnich
continued. The population center


of Sarasota County "might not be
Sarasota in the future it may be
up near Nokomis. Hopefully we'll
have time to plan and do (things)
in a reasonable, responsible way.
"There's an awful lot of work
and it's going to take some major
decisions. It's not going to be easy
and it's going to cost money. (Some


of) it will come from residents,
because as well know, new devel-
opment does not really pay for it-
self. All will be paying."
But as the area goes through this
process, growing pains are setting
in. Roads, water and affordable
housing have become priorities.
And many residents who live here
don't have a lot of extra income.
"There's a changing demograph-
ic," said Lane Diedrick, president of
the Englewood Bank. "That (chang-
ing demographic) is in the afford-
ability. With land prices escalating
faster than ever, making the afford-
abili.y issues change, and the people
coming here lare) changing. How
those individuals will be serviced
from delivery, hospital, retail ser-
vices, too becomes an issue. On top
(of that are) schools, too. This whole
demographic is quite unique."
Minnich sees many problems,
several of which the area is already
experiencing.
"Transportation (and) energy
will be major issues; water is going
to be a problem; infrastructure to
accommodate the people who will
be moving in to South County -
and they're on their way now," said
Minnich. "How are we going to
afford and pay for requirements
these people will have? Most of the
new housing will be here, part in
North Port on the Thomas Ranch."

In just more than four
months as finance director
for the city of Venice, Jeff
Snyder has definitely made
an impression on everyone
he has met. He is known as
a friendly and good-natured
man who also knows his
business and performs pro-
fessionally on every level.
According to Deputy
Finance Director JoAnne
Lounsbury, "He starts and
ends every day with a smile.
I don't know how he does
it, but Mr. Snyder is able to
be happy-go-lucky and very
professional at the same
time. He shakes hands and
talks with each of his em-
ployees every day that's a
new experience for all of
us."
When asked to describe
himself and his managerial
style, Snyder said, "I am very
conservative, both personally
and professionally. I look at


spending the taxpayers'
money just like I was spend-
ing my own very carefully.
And while I will do whatever
is necessary to get the job
done, I still like to have fun
while I'm working."
His first assignment to all


of his employees was to read
the Spencer Johnson book
"Who Moved My Cheese?"
which has become a pop-
ular and effective textbook
on adapting to corporate
change.
"I wanted my staff to

know that, although changes
might be coming in their
department, such change
does not have to be a trau-
matic experience. It was my
intention to make the trans-
ition as easy and enjoyable
as possible."
Snyder put that philoso-
phy into practice immed-
iately by meeting one-on-
one with each of his em-
ployees.
"I asked them to discuss
both the department's and
their own strengths and
weaknesses -- what they
would like to see changed,
and how I could help them
enjoy and succeed at their
jobs."
Heartland values
Although born in Ohio,
Snyder grew up in the small
town of Libby, Mofit., enjoy-
ing a rural lifestyle and out-
door activities such as hunt-
ing, fishing and camping
amid the scenic mountains,
forests and streams.


In his ,teen years, he
worked as a logger and as a
forest fire fighter. For a while,
he worked as a laborer on
the railroad.
Snyder married his high
school sweetheart, Judy, in
1980, and they continued to
live and work in the Libby
area.

This is the second in a series
of stories on the new faces of
city of Venice management.


It was quite a change,
therefore, when he went to
the big city of Missoula and
started college in 1982 at the
University of Montana. He
graduated with a degree in
accounting, and then went
on to Western Washington
University in Bellingham to
get his master's in business
administration. From that
point on, there was no ques-

heating up

In a news story this past
week, scientists said the water
temperature
near the Florida Keys has
already reached levels once
recorded only in September.
They're worried that the hot
water will bleach coral reefs.
Tropical Bob has another
worry.
SThe peak of hurricane sea-

August and early September.
Why? The hottest water tem-
peratures occur then, provid-
ing tropical systems high

to global warming.

The grand reopening of

Staff presentations will
take up the bulk ofVenice City
Council's time at its regular
meeting Tuesday, but the
most emotionally laden mat-
ter is a resolution opposing
moving Venice High School
off the island.
So far there is no actual
proposal to do anything with
the high school beyond the
renovations being made this
summer. But there is general
agreement that the school is
in need of more substantial
work, possibly replacement.
If that were to happen, city
council wants to be on record
as supporting rebuilding the
school on its present site.
The original buildings on
campus are more than 50
years old. Estimates for a new
state-of-the-art facility are in
the tens of millions of dollars
excluding land costs.

Charter review work is almost done


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

The Venice Charter Review
Committee had a timetable
all worked out for reporting
its conclusions to city council
in time to get some charter
amendments on the Nov-
ember ballot.
The committee planned to
formally vote on its recom-
mendations July 20 and pre-
sent them to council July 25,
leaving the month of August
for the approval of ballot lan-
guage to be forwarded to the
supervisor of elections to
meet a September deadline.
Then council canceled its
July 25 meeting. The news left


the committee scrambling to
regroup.
The new plan: a report to
council Aug. 8 that will
include not just the commit-
tee's recommendations, but a
proposed ordinance as well.
Usually the preparation of an
ordinance comes at council's
direction, but there isn't a
meeting prior to Aug. 8 at
which it can be obtained.
"I don't think the commit-
tee has any choice at this
point in time," said Chairman
Greg Roberts.
City Attorney Bob And-
erson said the ordinance
could be revised between first
reading on Aug. 8 and adop-
tion on Aug. 22.


No minority report
The committee Roberts;
Jim Leis, Greg Shanika, Jean
Trammell and Diana Miers -
has been considering several
possible charter changes:
Making the city's finance
director an employee in the
city manager's office instead
of a charter officer.
Allowing the city manag-
er to discipline the police
chief and fire chief without
city council involvement.
Allowing a council mem-
ber who has served three
elected terms to run for
mayor, ,or vice versa, without
having to sit out a year, as is
currently required. This
would make it possible for a


FINAL MEETING

The Charter Review Committee will convene for the last time on
the proposed charter changes July 20 at 1:30 p.m. at city hall. It
will vote on the final version of the proposed charter changes and
the four ballot questions it suggests council put before Venice vot-
ers in November, dealing with the finance director, discipline of
the police and fire chiefs, election of the mayor and council term
limits.


person to serve on council for
18 consecutive years.
Limiting council mem-
bers to three elected terms for
a total of no more than nine
years; current charter lan-
guage relies on the nine-year
limit, creating the possibility


of a member being elected to
a term he or she can't com-
plete.
"Resetting the clock" so
that the election of a mayor is
always for a full three-year
term.
The committee reached a


consensus on the proposals
some time ago, with the only
sticking point being Shanika's
desire to maintain a direct
reporting relationship bet-
ween council and the finance
director even though the
position would be under the
city manager's jurisdiction.
Roberts, Trammell and
Mier said they were comfort-
able there were enough safe-
guards without requiring the
finance director to report to
council, and Shanika said he
would not make a point of it,
even though he continued to
disagree.
"There will not be a minor-
ity report, I can assure you,"
he said.


Red-tide outbreak continues


BY GAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER

For the second week, sci-
entists with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Research Inst-
itute have detected concen-
trations of red-tide cells in
Southwest Florida waters.
The bloom's main concen-
tration is situated between
Pine Island Sound in Lee
County and Clam Pass in
Collier County.
Jay Abbott, a biologist with
the FWRI, said its area makes
the bloom small to medium
in size, but the number of red-
tide cells in the bloom makes
it low to severe in concentra-
tion.
"It's not quite a full-blown
red tide at this point," Abbott
said. "It's something that has
piqued our interest for sure."
The bloom is the first re-
ported outbreak since 2005's
year-long bloom that killed
fish and irritated people from


Tampa to Naples. That bloom
left thousands of fish dead on
Charlotte and Sarasota coun-
ty beaches. The current
bloom, however, is only caus-
ing fish kills from Fort Myers
south to Naples.
According to the research
institute's Web site, red-tide
concentrations are patchy in
Pine Island Sound and range
from not present to low be-
tween the southern portion of
Sanibel Island and Lovers Key.
Medium to high concentra-
tions were found at Lely
Barefoot Beach and Clam
Pass, both in Collier County.
Although scientists detect-
ed higher red tide concentra-
tions this week, Abbott said it
was unclear if the bloom was
spreading or would lead to a
major outbreak.
"It's hard to tell," he said.
Abbott said the research insti-
tute, with the help of other
marine agencies, would con-
tinue to monitor the bloom.


County to add land to Myakka holdings


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

This one's for the birds.
And fish. And manatees.
The purchase of approxi-
mately 100 acres of pristine
wilderness on the east side of
the Myakka River on the. bor-
der of Sarasota and Charlotte
counties will come before
Sarasota's Board of County
Commissioners on Tuesday,
July 11.
The price tag for the land is
$3 million, not including
appraisal, survey, environ-
mental site assessment, title,
closing and other costs.
According to a report pre-
pared by Brooke Elias of the
county's Natural Resources
department, the Myakka
Properties Inc. land consists
of approximately 53 acres of
upland surrounded by sub-
merged lands.


"This provides more buffer
to the Myakka State Forest,"
she said. "The inlets coming
in provide lots of foraging
habitat for wading birds.
There are also places for fish
to rear young."
Being right on the Myakka
river and surrounded by
marsh and water make the
spot ideal for preserving
uninterrupted inland coast-
line, which is also beneficial
to wildlife, she added.
A lot of acreage has been
purchased by Sarasota coun-
ty along the Myakka river over
the last five years, providing
an insulated corridor for
wildlife and the river to flour-
ish.
Rich in diversity
This parcel was reviewed
by a citizens advisory board,
which recommended its
approval and placement in


the Myakka Forest Addition
Site.
The county used The
Nature Conservancy, a land
acquisition agent, to negoti-
ate for the environmental
land. TNC got appraisals and
made a fair market value offer
for the land from its private
owner, much the way anyone
might make an offer for the
purchase of a piece of proper-
ty. The commissioners will
have the task of determining
whether this is a-fair, good
and appropriate contract.
"(The land) is rich in its
diversity of species ... It's
tidally influenced, so you
have the tides coming in and
out," said Elias. "I know that
manatees will probably be
coming out of there at certain
times of the year, because
they go' up the river all the
way to the Warm Mineral
Springs and use the river as a


refuge, especially in the cold
winter months."
From fish to manatees, she
added, wildlife of all kinds will
benefit from the purchase
and preservation of this land.

6A VEINI.CEU GONDLAJIERlJUIN


GROWTH '.I A


Concerns were raised
about the slowdown in the
housing market.
"That's like trying to pre-
dict the Fed and raising the
interest rates," added Died-
rick. "I wish I could say, (but)
we're seeing a normalization
of the housing and real estate
market. If you follow the
stock market, I don't think
it's that bad here. It's just dif-
ferent from where we've
been."
Art Broslat is a local Real-
tor with ReMax Palm Realty
who specializes in lots and
property. He said that while
a steady number of people
want to buy a house in North
Port, it's not "5,000 in one
month."
The issue, Diedrick ex-
plained, is called absorption.
"You've got to absorb your
(existing) built units, then
(the market) will stabilize


and start to rise."
Affordable housing
Diedrick did a study in
Englewood and found the
average new home being
built in that area sells for
about $400,000.
"That's a big change from
the way it's been in years
past," he said "Once it hits
that type of number, it's not
going to retreat. It might fall
back a bit, but not much.
"That's an average. It gets
swayed when it gets around
waterfront, but pretty much,
the cheapest new project
I've seen in the Englewood
market are about $250,000
in the bottom end. So where
does it become affordable?"
Minnich joked that "af-
fordable housing in Engle-
wood comes on wheels."
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub agreed


that affordable housing is a
concern, but added that the
Englewood area would see
more of "a tug and pull" as
far as the housing market is
concerned.
Staub said part of the issue
is that many expect to have a
brand-new home with three
bedrooms and two baths.
"Why does everyone have
to have a new home?" she
asked. "It goes back to expec-
tations. I hope we see some
rehabilitation and renova-
tion. Living in an existing
neighborhood, your trees are
already mature and there's a
built-in community.
"I don't know how you
change expectations, but I
don't see the county allow-.
ing for a lot more growth
without getting our roads in
hand. I know we're behind
the 8-ball. North Port, I know
you have the new develop-


AKRtS I WF,. A


ments that are planned."
Staub was referring to
Island Walk at West Villages,
the former Thomas Ranch,
that will feature 15,000 new
homes, as well as the pro-
posed Isles of Athena, the
former Kelce Ranch, with an
additional 15,000 homes.
"Our quickest build-out
would be (by) 2015," Jones
said of a North Port with
240,000 people. "And that's a
hugely fast growth rate. If
everything cools down, it
would be 2030, which is a
little more reasonable. But
that also included Heron
Creek, Bobcat Trail and the
Thomas Ranch."
Broslat is concerned that,
even with rapid develop-
ment, there are still thou-
sands of empty platted lots
in both North Port and Port
Charlotte all owned by
different people with differ-
ent ideas and timetables.
Stock Development took
about 3,000 lots for Murdock
Village, which is a Charlotte
County government plan to
consolidate individual lots
into one development, he
said.
"The thing that concerns
me is that ... land prices are
going up, but lot prices have
dropped like a rock. That
will encourage a different
in-migration from the
$400,000 opera-goers.
"In North Port, there are
zones that are relatively
concentrated (with homes).
Then there are zones where
you can drive a long way
down a street and there are
no houses."
North Port City Commis-
sioner Dick Lockhart said it's
not all "gloom and doom,"
however.
"We have a developer
putting in allegedly afford-
able housing, (between)
$185,000 and $210,000 for
school teachers and fire-
man," he said. "New houses
are bigger and better, but
there's hundreds' of..General
Development houses for
sale. (North Port's) still a bed-
room community, but it's


geared to catch up. Lowe's is
coming in, and of course we
have Home Depot and Wal-
Mart."

Commercial development
"One of the things we
overlook in general is trying
to put employment centers
down our way," Staub said.
"North Port has done a great
job with Toledo Blade (In-
dustrial Park), it's almost
built out. We're looking at
where we can put more
industry and office.
"This whole south area,
the whole problem is that
people are traveling from
North Port to North County.
If you haven't driven down
East Jacaranda, there are
some really good businesses
back there, no big signs, but
it's booming. To me we need
more than just the retail
shopping areas."
Lockhart thinks rezoning
is the answer.
"(We need) balanced
growth, especially out east
near 1-75," he said. "We need
the interchange to do it, and
that's supposedly in the
works.
"I would like to have re-
zoning. It would help Char-
lotte County and North Port
in that northeast part near
1-75. Schools will be in that
area.
"North Port is not going
to sink down a hole we are
very well planned. But can't
rely on the housing market
to sustain the tax base; we
need more commercial to
sustain the market. Housing
is going to smooth out, but
we have to get more areas
for commercial, especially
along 1-75."
Minnich thought it would
really be nice if a regional
comprehensive plan "which
addressed something on all
borders" could be created.
Diedrick agreed, but also
suggested commercial diver-
sity is part of the solution.
"If you look at.wivhat.drives,,
our economy and how jobs.
tentacle out, a great,deal is
tied to the construction,


industry," he said. "And we're
all impacted. We start talking
about a slowdown and a sta-
bilization in the market, but
it's critical for our whole
region to be collectively try-
ing to find diversification for
jobs here.
"It's the chicken or the
egg, and we pretty much
have to invest in the egg first.
"You have to have that
density," Diedrick continued.
"With retail, you have to
have a supporting environ-
ment. One of the reasons
why Marion Avenue in Punta
Gorda has not grown is be-
cause it's not surrounded by
any density."
Staub talked about the
potential conflict of keeping
a small-town feel in the old-
er section of Englewood,
while at the same time trying
to keep it a focal point for
population.
"We want to revitalize, but
that seems to come with
doing 20 condo units 50 feet
high in the middle of a single-
family (housing) area," she
said, describing a request
county commissioners re-
cently turned down. "I think
there's going to be a big
forum of discussion; urban-
ization where everything's
walkable is great, but I'm not
sure Englewood is going to
be willing to go that route."
Growing in the
right direction
"More and more I'm
thinking regionally," Minnich
said. "There are answers and

tion that accounting was his
chosen profession.
Snyder is proud of the fact
s) that he passed his CPA exam
on the first attempt after
w getting his MBA, and then
accepted a position as a state
X' examiner in the Bellingham
region of the Washington
State Auditor's Office in 1988.
1 After six years he was pro-
d moted to audit manager in
the Spokane office, where he
spent another six years before
r leaving the state operation.
Wo From there he took a job
-fl with the county of Spokane,
aT and served as accounting
manager for three years;
- Snyder is quick to observe
'" that he really liked that
assignment, saying, "It was a
great job that was both chal-
lenging and rewarding. The
only reason I decided to leave
was because I needed to
g0 make more money to finance
To the college education of my
three daughters."
fb: From frying pan to fire
esp His search for a higher-
-o paying job took him and his
family to Lubbock, Texas, for
Ja the next three years, where
,"he served as the city's chief
t accountant and then direc-
c tor of fiscal operations.
~- Unfortunately, Lubbock
g was going through a period
10o of political turmoil during
01 that time.
'After only three years, I
was working for the fifth city
manager," .he said. "It was a
very stressful atmosphere
n. where the direction seemed
to change every, few months
bfr. you just didn't know what
9M to expect from one day to the
next. We were definitely in
-' need of,some stability after
that experience."


seem to be going in the same
direction. There is a great
team atmosphere here, with
everyone working for the
greater good of the com-
munity."
Snyder was especially im-
pr6ssed with the retreat held
in April, at which council
members were able to deter-
mine the necessary priorities
for the city.
"The results of that and
subsequent planning ses-
sions have allowed charter
officers and department
heads to know where to di-
rect their resources," he ob-
, served. "It's been my ex-
perience that you don't often
see elected bodies with such
a willingness to work with
staff to set both short and
long range goals."'
The icing on the cake is
that he has found he can still
enjoy fishing, hunting and
camping,, plus he can spend
time at the beach and SCUBA
diving. His newest interest is
searching the waters of the
gulf for those big sharks' teeth
everyone says are out there.
After all those years in
Montana and Washington,
Snyder has now fallen in
love with Florida.
"I don't miss the cold
weather one bit," he said.
"Now I wake up in paradise
every day you just can't
beat that! I definitely want
to be here a long time."
Family man


If you are around him for
any length of time, you will
hear about and see pictures
of Snyder's family he is
truly a proud husband and
father. His wife, Judy, has a
degree in dental hygiene,
and has worked in that field

role she loves most wife
and mother.
The Snyders' oldest daugh-
ter will graduate in August
with a degree in electrical
engineering from the Uni-
versity of Washington in Se-
attle. Daughter number two
is going to be a junior in the
pre-med program at Texas
Tech in Lubbock. Their
youngest daughter is going
into her junior year here at
Venice High School.
Good reviews
City council members are
currently in the process of
completing performance
appraisals on each of the
charter officers. Although
Snyder has been in the posi-
tion of finance, director only
a few months, he has gain-
ed the respect and apprecia-
tion of his new bosses.
Council member John
Moore, for example, summa-
rizes his evaluation this way:
"I have been very impressed
.with your communication
skills and ability to work
cooperatively with council,
charter officers and staff. I
particularly appreciate your
effort to review the CAFR
(Comprehensive Annual
Financial Report) for the fis-
cal year ending 9/30/2005,
with council members. I have
enjoyed working with you,
and feel that your perfor-
mance as a whole has been
fully satisfactory."

Asked for his comments,
layor Fred Hammett stated,
"Although he is still pretty
new, I was involved in the
interview and hiring process
when Jeff was selected. I am
excited about his potential
and fully expect him to thrive
in his job with the city."
City manager Marty Black
expressed his appreciation
for Snyder by saying, "It is
very helpful to finally have
the finance department at
full staffing. For many
months before Jeff's arrival,
JoAnne and her staff had a
tremendous burden of work-
load and responsibility. They
did a great job considering
the circumstances, but now
we are looking forward to
applying his expertise in the
review of all policies and
procedures, and the imple-
mentation of best business
practices wherever needed."
Snyder's previous experi-
ence in auditing has proven
quite valuable, as reflected in
Moore's comment about the
CAFR review as well as this
observation by Lounsbury:
"It's been great to have all that
auditing experience and abil-
ity built in with the director -
we haven't had that advan-
tage before."

Civil rights lawsuit


filed against sheriff,


medical examiner


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office has been
served with a lawsuit alleging
violation of civil rights, and is
waiting for a court to decide
on its motion to dismiss.
. On April 26, Steven ,Esdale
filed a lawsuit alleging viola-
tion of civil rights against the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office, the District 12 Medical
Examiner's Office and the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement.
Fort Lauderdale attorney,
Mark Berkowitz filed the law-.
suit in the U.S. District Court
in Fort Myers for Esdale and
his family. The case was trans-
ferred to the U.S. District
Court in Tampa.
The lawsuit alleges the
sheriff's office, along with the
medical examiner and
Florida Department of Law.
Enforcement, intentionally.
deprived Esdale's family of
property rights by "perpetrat-
ing an obstruction of justice,"


and by acting "through a
conspiracy."
Esdale's father, Murray
Cohen, 71, died at his Siesta
Key home in Sarasota on Jan.
13, 2003. The lawsuit states
Cohen's wife of three weeks
called 9-1-1, telling dispatch-
ers her husband was having
a heart attack.
Berkowitz alleges the in-
vestigations were not con-
ducted properly, and the ac-
tions of all the parties were
done "under the color of
state law."
Sheriff spokesperson Lt.
Chuck Lesaltato said he
could not comment on the
lawsuit.
He said the sheriff's office
looked into this case thor-
oughly, followed up on infor-
mation provided by Esdale,
and found Cohen's death
"natural."
All defendants have filed a
motion to dismiss and are
waiting for a court decision.

Phenomenal growth: A challenge and an opportunity


The current rate of growth in South
County continues to resemble a run-
away train.
Think about it for a second. Even in the
recent real estate downturn, building here
persists at a breakneck clip. The following
communities are either currently under
construction or on track to be started very
soon:,
West Villages 11,600 acres of devel-
opment, approximately 25,000 homes for
more than 50,000 people.
Tuscano -- 2,500 acres with about 1,600
homes. Adjacent to the Venetian commun-
ity, it will include a 27-hole golf course, a
clubhouse and an 11.9-acre park.
Ston6ybrook at Venice 700 single-
family homes now being built at Venice
Avenue and River Road.
Blackburn 1,400 homes planned
near River and Center roads.
The Woodlands 2,596 homes plan-
ned in North Port.


Isles of Athena 15,000 homes on
5,700 acres in the northeast portion of
North Port.
Other projects already approved along
U.S. 41, River Road and State Road 776 will
add yet another 2,500 homes to the South
County over the next few years.
Wait, there's more.
Figure in the approximately 2,000 single-
family home permits. North Port approves
each year, plus another 1,500 or so the
county approves for South County. The
numbers total more than 100,000 new
residents moving to the area in the next 10
years! And this- doesn't even count the
growth coming to Charlotte and DeSoto
counties during the same time span.
This news, though sobering, isn't neces-
sarily bad. With the current and future
growth affecting South County! will come
enormous opportunity.
Commissioner Shannon Staub said, "I
see South County (having) greater diversity


in ages, race and ethnic groups. Although
baby boomers will retire here, families and
a younger work force will live and work in
the area."
Staub envisions U.S. 41 enjoying make-
overs with redevelopment of commercial
areas and more employment centers
throughout South County composed of
office and light technology industry. She
sees redevelopment of areas around the
Englewood Business District and subdivi-
sions within North Port including commer-
cial and office development, along with the
redevelopment of older commercial and
residential areas.
Thomas Ranch, also known as West
Villages District, will incorporate aspects of
new urbanism and create a "mini-town,"
she adds, along with the balance of green
space, protected lands, healthy beaches
and water bodies such as the Myakka Riv-
er and Lemon Bay all nestled within a
community encouraging the advancement


of arts and culture.
Still, this all won't just happen overnight.
It will take time and money.
Some of the money will come from
incoming residents in the form of impact
fees. Much more will come from increased
taxes, municipal .bonds and other capital-
raising programs needed to offset both the
costs of South County's .coming growth
and the costs it faces today. These include
infrastructure, amenities, police protection,
firehouses, schools and much more.
As Commissioner Jon Thaxton put it,
"We need to solve the challenges at hand
before we consider expanding the potential
for additional obligations. The first step to get-
ting yourself out of a hole is to stop digging."
For better or for worse, no one's going
to stop digging anytime soon. For that rea-
son, it is essential that we prepare ourselves
for the results of that digging better than
some of our overcrowded neighboring
counties have done.

Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice has
made a lot of changes to its
policies that will move its
giving in different directions.
Maybe of biggest impact will
be that it will now allow cap-
ital grants to organizations
outside its service area if
they benefit residents within
the service area (Osprey to
Boca Grande).
There is some history to
this: That is how the Venice
Foundation started making
grants. It got requests from
the Sarasota Opera, West
Coast Symphony, Ringling
Museum, Hospice, Cardinal
Mooney and many more.
There was a flood of those,
all for good causes, most of
them quite large.
The foundation learned
over time that the .couple
million dollars available for
capital grants in an annual
cycle got eaten up pretty fast
by grants to these agencies.
So after about five years the
foundation discontinued ac-
cepting outside grant re-
quests.
Partly this was because
these organizations got quite
a bit of state grant funding,
but most important because
there were local agencies that
needed the money. In any
case, experience would say
that our area's capital proj-
ects will suffer due to this
new policy.
Maybe the decision that
will have the most unusual
impact is the one that re-
quires new building projects
to be "green." I certainly like
the feeling of this and ap-
plaud the foundation for
putting some emphasis
there, but I can also see
where that could be a costly
and in some cases impossi-
ble hurdle to overcome.
Remodels will get the money
and new might not.
Two current projects -
the Boys & Girls Club and the
YMCA both have huge
projects that I am unsure
could have afforded to be
"green." I wish this would just
have been an incentive to do


it, not "you must do it or
else." It would be unfortun-
ate if worthy project were
refused funding because of
that.
The foundation has an-
other new policy that has
got some nonprofits upset.
,This. policy says thqt for
small grants of $1i 0,000 or less
- sometimes called 'emter-
gency grants organizations
will usually have to get
matching funds.
Again, I like the general
idea that organizations need
to help themselves and not
just rely on the foundation.
When I was on the board we
did not require enough orga-
nizations to help themselves.
It was just too easy to go to
the foundation\and get all
the money for a project, or at
least not to have to raise any.
Yet there are organizations
that by their makeup have
difficulty raising money. The
other thing is that some of
these grants are of an emer-
gency nature, not all wing
time to secure a mat h. I
hope this rule has s me
leeway, but it is a good gui e-
line.-
The foundation also hal
created a fund to partially
underwrite development or\
grant-writing position. The
idea here is that if an agency
gets its own fundraising per-
son it won't need to go to
GCCFV as often. '
This is also a road that the
foundation has been down
before, with generally bad
results. Most smaller agencies
end up doing a lot of fund-
raising in order to pay for
the fundraiser. All that does
is make for even a more
crowded nonprofit fundrais-
ing calendar just to pay the
additional help.
I know of one organiza-
tion that hired such a person
and had to have a huge
fundraiser to pay for the per-
son. This event in closed cir-
cles was named after him. It
sapped a lot of energy from
the board and staff.
Think about it. Let's say
the person makes $35,000.
To cover that since foun-
dations will not give to cover
operational costs means
either going to United Way
or holding a bunch of golf
tournaments, balls or walk-
a-thons to do the trick. We
have an overload of those
now. It doesn't make sense
unless it is a huge organiza-
tion, and'then it already like-
ly has such a person.

LETTERS FROM W. UR ,


Not all pigs are down on the farm


Editor:
Sooey, sooey, sooey. It's how you call pigs and swine out
on the farm.
There's a new species of pig that can be found out on the
Venice City Pier today; they show disrespect toward their fel-
low man, are dirty and break a lot of rules.
They are but a few and because of this few, we, the ones
that "do it right" are going to suffer. '"Abuse it and lose it",
comes to mind, on what the city of Venice is about to do at
the pier.
Every morning a dedicated few local fisherman spend
heir time cleaning up someone else's mess before they
start their own fishing trip. To these individuals I say thank
you, but to those who left their disrespect I say, "Shame on
you!"P
'Catching a load of fish and leaving them on the deck to
sun dry and rot the next day is surely a sign of unsports-'
manlike conduct. Who are you to leave your mess for some-
one else to pick up?
The blame is pointing at a group of big-game fishermen
who are locals and fish the pier regularly in the evening or at
night after work. They are not the culprits. I'll bet if we charg-
ed admission on the number of rods you fished, with it
would curtail the problem.

Kick out the
United Nations

Editor:
Citizens of the United
States of America are good,
kind, trusting people from all
walks of life and from every-
where around the world.
Kindness is not always
repaid with kindness. We
welcomed the United Na-
tions to house themselves in
our country and have turned
the other cheek when they
behave in a manner not
conducive to diplomats and
guests in another country.
Respect for our country, our
government and our citizens


is a trait foreign to the ma-
jority of the United Nations.
The United Nation's power
to make decisions for the
good of all is highly question-
able.

win were the Korean and
Vietnam wars? In Korea,
Americans fought and died
under the command of the
United Nations, whose U.N.
,boss in charge of military
operations was a communist
from the Soviet Union. In
Vietnam, the Southeast Asia
Treaty Organization (a sub-
sidiary of the United Nations)
was the legal basis for our


involvement.
If we aren't painstakingly
vigilant, the United Nationis
will destroy our way of life
and our envied and hallowed
nation.
It is no secret that the
United Nations is striving
for a one-world government.
Let them give birth to it
without us and outside our
United States of America.
The United Nations has
more than 120 member
nations to choose from as
their headquarters.
We must remove ,this in-
festation (United Nations)
from our borders. We don't
need the United Nations -
they need us (and abuse
us).

Voters deserve
a clean sweep
Editor:
The latest wrinkle in the
board of education saga has
Frank Kovach, the vice chair-
man, complaining he had no
clue a fee of $120,000 was
being paid to some "outside"
consultants to sort out the
morale problems at Booker
High School.
I am convinced we are
looking at a condition I can
only describe as a series of
disconnects among the cen-
tral office, board and the
school staff. Building princi-
pals seem to be out there on
their own without sufficient
support or direction.


Mr. Kovach's admission
of ignorance, i and the recent
series of faux pas after the
referendum, starting with
the student enrollment de-
cline and continuing with the
additional request for a 10-
percent increase in funding,
coupled with cutbacks in
teacher aide positions, leave
many Sarasota voters with a
degraded impression not
only of the board's oversight
competence but also the su-
perintendent's performance.
Though all board mem-
bers, with the exception of
Mr. Kovach, a businessman,
and John Lewis, with a law
enforcement background,
have instructional experi-
ence and fine educational
credentials, the problems
manifesting themselves in
the county school system
seem to be increasing.
Insofar as all of the other
board seats are up for elec-
tion except his, perhaps Mr.
Kovach should resign and
allow the voters, parents,
teachers and taxpayers to
make a choice about the
entire board.
Voters should be given a
chance for a clean sweep, for
a change in direction that
will bring fresh hands and
minds to the work of giving
the next generation of Sara-
sota's children their best
opportunities.

LET 'EM HAVE IT!


I,.: '


Island doesn't own VHS


Move it. This call is in reference to the Venice High School's
move off the island. I am in total agreement with this as a par-
ent of a child in that high school. I've dealt with the deteriora-
tion of the school and the age of the school and just the pre-
sentation of the school where the school is not fit to even hold
all the students that are there. Remove that school, rebuild. a
school and remove those children to a decent school where
they can graduate in their ,own school instead of in another
school or on a football field. The city of Venice need not
worry about Venice High School. They shouldn't have Ven-
ice High School to back their financial needs. Venice High
School serves the whole community: South Venice, Venice,
North Venice. It's just not for the city of Venice. And I'm totally
in agreement with the bridges. Knowing this, trying to get on
that island myself or getting off that island in an emergency
is extremely difficult. And in a major disaster, we would not
be able to our children. The high school needs to be moved,
and you can inform Mr. Norris that he needs to consider this.
There is no other school in this area that is on an island with
three bridges. He needs to take that under consideration.


Legals welcome. I hear
numbers of 11 million immi-
grants in the country from
Mexico. The numbers don't
mean anything and doesn't

saw it on TV I wasn't preju-

I think we should welcome
them, but not illegally, and
please don't fly the Mexican
flag in the United States. If
you they Mexico so much,
why don't they just go back to
Mexico City and wave their
flags there and look for better
conditions in their own coun-
try. Have them come back in
with picture:IDs, fingerprints,
pay taxes and they're wel-
come.
Use them. So what's with
the complaining about the
bridge being closed on
Caspersen Beach? Did you
ever stop to think that certain
minority groups pursue crim-
inal activities in that area? It's
so nice not to see that in the
paper anymore. And why do
we have to have parking
meters in downtown Venice?
That's a ridiculous idea that
has been going around for
years that nobody wants. Put
in a parking garage instead.

tion decision is to conduct
another social capital survey.
This is to follow on one it did
about three years ago.
That one was somewhat
interesting, showing how
people are less involved in
the community than 'they
used to be. That survey was
way too expensive, around
$80,000, to tell us what we
mostly knew. I question how
another survey will reveal any
shocking changes, especially
since there has not been a
drastic effort to effect change.
By now you can see that
I am not enthused about
most of the changes that
have been made. Asking
some of those who had been
through it before might have
helped shape some different
conclusions.

weight I was five weeks earli-

For the first time in mem-

for body fat. I am now at 24
percent (before Fourth of July

for men supposed to be from
18 to 25 percent. Considering
that I started at 34 percent
body fat, this proves you can
turn blubber to muscle.

Researchers '
have come to the
fr surprising conclusion that healthy
nerve fibers, not damaged ones,
6 contribute to persi-tent pain 'This
i u .. f' flrdi i o ld s.ecii to be C'-riraf" y ,
common sense, x which '. would po-int 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 chroriic pain. This finding
underscores the necessity of keeping an open mind
when conducting research.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


To no one's surprise, the
Venice American and
National 9-10 year old Little
League All Stars finished up
District 16 pool play in
impressive fashion Saturday
at the Chuck Reiter Complex.
In fact, Saturday's oppo-
nents did not even get a-hit off
the Venice pitchers.,
American finished a per-
fect 6-0 in pool play with a 13-
0 victory over punchless
North Port.
Joey Buncik pitched a per-
fect game. He got plenty of
support. Tyler Shambora had
two doubles. Joey Cavallaro,
Dave Holcomb and Michael
Farr also had two-baggers.
Rhett Dinka and Charlie Jerla
slapped singles.
National battered Sarasota
West, 13-0, to finish 5-1 in
pool play. Tyson Albert
pitched three innings while
Josh Grubbs fired the fourth
and final frame.
Brett Smith, Nick Longhi,
B.J. Morse and Grubbs had


two hits each. Dan Raynor,
Mark Arnold and Albert also
had hits.
The top three finishers in
pool play advance to the
championship round.
American is seeded first.
Second seeded National will
play third-seed East Central
Sarasota as double elimina-
tion play begins at 9 a.m.
Saturday.

Sarasota Florida KOs Venice American


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It was a nice ride, but
Saturday was time for the
Venice American 11-12 All
Stars to get off the District 16
merry-go-round.
Mark Guthrie's Sarasota
Florida team scored a 9-5
knockout punch to the
Americans, who finished 3-2
in the tournament.
Sarasota Florida moves on
to the 11-12 finals against
Venice National. Monday's
game is 7 p.m. If Sarasota
Florida wins that game, a
deciding game will be played
on Tuesday night.
Saturday's game was a
tight one. Sarasota Florida
didn't pull away until the top
of the sixth inning.
Sarasota Florida threw
Trevor Wilson for six innings
and J.J. Gould finished up.
Rex Ingerick went the dis-
tance for Venice American.
Venice American drew first
blood in the top of the sec-
ond. Evan Obermeier walked.
Matt Strickland singled
sharply to center. Obermeier
scored on Dante Altieri's
groundout.


Cameron Mailloux tied it
with one swing of the alu-
minum in the bottom of the
inning.
Ingerick lined a homer to
center in the top of the third
to put American up 2-1.
Sarasota Florida countered
with four in the bottom of the
third. Wilson had a key two-
run single.
American wasn't about to
give up, rallying for three runs
in the fourth to tie the game at
5-5. Strickland singled and
Juliana Cavallaro had a bunt
single. Mason Bo brought in a
run with a groundout.
Michael Iorio singled to drive
in a run, making it 5-4.
Ingerick followed with a
check swing RBI single to tie
it.
Sarasota Florida edged
ahead at 6-5 behind an RBI
single off the bat of Mailloux,
who killed the A's with his
play.
Guthrie's team got lots of
insurance in the bottom of
the fifth. Joe Davino popped a
two-run homer and Kevin
Guthrie capped a gutsy game
with a RBI double.
And the Americans were
history.

Mobil V-IIanimal inic cuts surgery costs






Mo bile animal clinic cuts surgery costs


The Animal Rescue Coalition makes it possible
for low-income pet owners to get their animals
sterilized cheaply and conveniently.


BY GABRIELA RAMIREZ
SUN INTERN

Benji and Chubbs didn't
know they were getting a
father-and-son procedure
done while under anesthesia.
However, they woke up
Friday as new men. Sort of.
The dogs had been
neutered in the Animal
Rescue Coalition mobile unit.
"I've brought my other
pets here before and I'm very
pleased, they're excellent,"
said Lisa Mosser, owner of
Chubbs, Benji, three other
Yorkies, five cats and several
fish.
The animal lover from
Venice brought her two dogs
to the Animal Rescue
Coalition mobile unit parked
at the Community Education
Center on Pan American
Boulevard in North Port.
On board were Teresa
Gardner, Dr. Wendy Ellis, Joey
Lamberti, and Karissa Myer.
Myer is also the ARC commu-
nity outreach coordinator.
Friday's showers might
have discouraged pet owners
who had scheduled appoint-
ments. Seventeen pets were
expected to be spayed or
neutered, but by noon, only
eight had checked in.
"We've had a difficult time
getting people to come to this
location and it costs us $1,500
a day to operate this mobile


unit," Myer said. "There are
people in North Port that
want these services, but the
location is hard to find."
There's a limit of two pets
per family per day, so there
won't be many open spaces
without an appointment. Pet
owners are to register in
advance.

Avoiding shelters
About 11,300 cats and dogs
have been treated on board
the ARC mobile unit. ARC is a
nonprofit organization par-
tially funded through Sara-
sota and Manatee counties,
private donations and grants.
"This a really good pro-
gram for people who struggle
financially," Ellis said.
Pet owners may qualify to
pay a reduce cost of $25 to
$50 for spaying or neutering
their pet. Others may qualify
for free services if they receive
government assistance such
as food stamps, Medicaid,
HUD housing, Florida Kid
Care or Social Security.
The mobile unit has oper-
ated since 2002.
"Everyone here loves ani-
mals," Myer said. "Our goal is
to get the cats and dogs
neutered or spayed so thou-
sands won't end up in shel-
ters."
Myer confirmed informa-
tion outside with the pet
owners. Gardner brought the

pets stay with us a minimum
of four tours after surgery for
reco\er.
According to Gardner, the
surgeons work at their own
pace; however, this procedure
usually lakes an average of 12
minutes.
Mosser and other pet own-
ers returned arountmd 3 p.m. to
pick up their pets.
"We're hoping that getting
them neutered will stop the
fighting," MNosser said.
Ellis said it's normal for the
animal to limit their activity
once they're home. If there
are any problems they can
come back for check-ups.
ARC also runs a cat and
dog foster program, as well as
a feral cat progrnun allowing
idy Ellis and veterinary techni- the vets to vaccinate them,

SUINUAY, JULY 9, LUUO WVVVVV.Villl-tI-NU""..L.nK-'.L"


SNYDER from page 1 A


city, Snyder said, "I've been
moving slowly and deliber-
ately in the department,
learning how the city oper-
ates and trying to determine
I where any changes might be
needed in policy and proce-
dures. I understand that some
of the changes which may
,be necessary may not be
t. popular with everyone con-
,. cerned."
: An example of that reality
has already arisen with a new
policy which requires that all
| payments to the city of Ven-
ice be received by the
r cashier's office at City Hall.
k Although people are used to
paying their utility bills and
traffic fines in that manner,
there has been a long-stand-
ing practice of letting some
airport tenants make their
payments at the airport ad-
ministrative office to be for-
1 warded to city hall.
Similarly, vendors making
deposits for special event fees
have customarily left their
checks with the special events
coordinator in the city man-
ager's office for processing.
t' The new policy requires
such payments to be deliv-
|, ered or sent directly to the
cashier's office. That means
a number of people both
1 citizens and department staff
.- have to change the way
they've been doing business.
'Although we regret any
inconvenience involved in
the change, it is ultimately
the best business practice
not to have the person or
office who has control of the
funds/assets to also do the
accounting for them," Snyder
said.
The city manager added
that the city has also imple-
Smented a new policy of
accepting credit cards for the
various fees and fines col-
lected by the cashier's office.
' "That is a big benefit to
customers in terms of con-
venience," Black noted.
4 He projected that "the
nexf'stepi 'i' the process \iljl
be to eventually authorize
online payments,,which cus-
tomers will be able to make
, from the comfort of their
homes, providing an even
more secure method of han-
dling their transactions."


Charter change?
Speaking of changes, the
question on many people's
minds is, what does the new
finance director think of the
proposal to change the status
of his position from that of a
charter officer who answers
directly to city council, to an


employee who answers
directly to the city manager?
Snyder responds to that
question without hesitation.
"I knew when I accepted
the job that the current
arrangement could change -
that the issue was being dis-
cussed and would probably
come to a referendum vote
by the citizens. I have a job
to do and can do it either
way."
Then with tongue some-
what in cheek, he added,
"The only real difference
would be that, under the
current structure, I would
have to make four people
mad at me to put my job in
jeopardy, whereas under the
proposed arrangement I'd
only have to make one per-
son mad."
Because he feels strongly
that he and the city manager
and the city council are all
on the same page, however,
he doesn't see the likelihood
of either of those situations
occurring.
"I'm simply here to help,
whether it is employees, citi-
zens, departments or the
elected leaders," Snyder con-
cluded.
"Sometimes we finance
people tend to forget that
we are just a support func-
tion for the front line people.
Regardless of the outcome of
this issue, my focus will be on
meeting with council, the city
manager and department
heads to determine what
financial information they
really need to do their jobs."
Immediate concern
Snyder's specific focus at
the moment is assisting the
city manager in preparing a
budget proposal for the fiscal
year that begins Oct. 1. They
have been meeting with de-
partment heads during the
past couple of weeks, and
are currently putting the
final touches on the book.
"Hopefully the proposed
budget, will be ready soonn to
be printed in time for the city
manager's official presenta-
tion to council at a special
meeting on July 25th," he
said with a confident smile.
"That's also the time when
council will set the proposed
millage rate, and schedule
dates for the budget public
hearings."
"In the meantime," said
Snyder, "the finance depart-
ment will be busy projecting
revenues for the remainder
of the current fiscal year as
well as for the upcoming
2006-2007 fiscal year."

Oral contracts can be binding


- and confusing


: I'm confused about oral
contracts. are they
binding?
A: Oral contracts can be as
binding as written contracts.
But without a written record,
it can be difficult to prove
What you have agreed.to. If
your deal goes south, you
hnay be endlessly chasing the
truth. Make it easy on
yourself and write up an
agreement.
Often parties enter into
agreements that are partially
oral and partially written,
based on a handshake and a
few letters or memos that


may indicate some of the
aspects of the agreement
without actually being
contracts themselves. In this
case, the "agreement" is
contained partly in the oral
agreement and partly in the
letters and memos. Put all the,
information relating to your


agreement in one place a
single, clear and complete
written contract.
Some oral contracts are
legally unenforceable. These
four types of contracts, which
involve a high risk of fraud,
typically must be in writing
by law..They are:


Contracts for the sale or
purchase of land
Contracts for the sale or
purchase of goods priced at
$500 or more (with a few
significant exceptions)
Marital settlement or
prenuptial contracts
Contracts that cannot be
performed within one year of
the time the contract is made
I've found that most of the
time clients don't have a good
reason for not putting
together a written contract. If
- you choose to use an oral
contract based on one of the
following rationalizations,


perhaps you should reconsid-
er your decision:
I'm too busy to write it
down. A legal battle over your
oral contract will take much
more time than putting
together a written contract.
The other party won't
agree to put it in writing.
Reconsider your relationship.
The world is full of honest
people, and none of them
mind putting what they
promise in writing.
I trust the other party.
Don't base any business
decision solely on trust.
The deal is too complicat-


ed to write down. Odds are
that it is not too complicated;
you just don't understand it.
Take the time to write out the
deal and hash out any unclear
points with the other party as
you go along. If you don't
understand the deal, how will
a judge or jury understand it
when you try to enforce it?
It's a great deal for me -
I don't want the other party to
think it through too much.
Chances are that the other
guy is thinking the same
thing about you. If the deal is
such a great deal, make sure
that it's enforceable.

Area pet owners took their favorite dog to
Brohard Paw Park for a swim on the Fourth
of July holiday.


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER


July Fourth was a doggone
good holiday in Venice f6r the
canine crowd.
Many pet owners took
advantage of the holiday off
from work to take their
canine buddies to Brohard
Paw Park for a swim. What


better way to reward man's
best friend than to have it
romp in the waves with their
canine pals on a sunny day in
Venice.
Lynn Cirillo of Venice
made sure her dog Zapper
had its sneakers on.
"It gets really hot on the
sand, and his little pads get
burned," she said. "I am try-


Doggie sneakers protect Zapper's feet from the hot sand.


ing the sneakers on him today
to see if he keeps them
strapped in. After all, my feet
get hot on the beach, so you
can you imagine his tiny
paws."
English Setter Abbie came
to the paw park with its own-,
ers, Tom and Pat Meissner, of
Englewood.
"This is only the second
day she has ever been in the
water," Pat said. "You should
have seen her yesterday. She
just couldn't figure out how to
swim. Abbie didn't know how
to keep her paws in the water
to paddle. Everyone on the
beach was laughing at her.
But Tom was very patient
with her and he taught her
how to doggie paddle. Today,
we are just like proud parents
taking their child to the beach
for the first time and watch-
ing her swim on her own."
Ellie, a standard poodle
was having fun just chasing
flies. Its owner, Peg Whitek of
Venice, is a regular at Brohard
Paw Park beach. She said that
Ellie loves to chase dragon
flies, and other insects at the
beach.
"On a hot summer day it's
her favorite thing to do.".
Fun in the sand
Then we have the dogs
who just want to dig for trea-
sure. Gin, whose owners
Ginny and Gary Brome of
Port Charlotte, said that Gin
will dig a hole anywhere just
by pointing to the sand.
"All we have to say is: 'Dig a
hole Gin!' and she does it, we
point to another spot 'Dig a
hole Gin' and there she goes.
She will do this all day."
Walking down the beach
we found sunbathing beauty


Brisco, owned by Venice High
School teacher Laray Biz-
iewski.
"I don't knowif he was sun-
bathing, but he sure likes to
come to the beach," Brisco's
owner said.
Jill Trwwsh has three dogs.
They were all drying off after
swimming.
"We live at the beach,"
Trwwsh said. "This is a great
place to meet 'dog people'
and they, after all they are
the best people in the world."
Trwwsh wants it known
that she thinks "this is the
most awesome beach in the
area. I would recommend it
to anyone who loves dogs to
come-down and meet people
who love animals."
David Haughey from the
Miami area brought 'Diesel'
to the beach, its little eyes
protected by a sun hat.
"I am visiting my mom in
Venice for the weekend, but I
am thinking about relocating
to Venice." he said. "One of
the reasons why I would
move here is because of this
beach."
Brohard Paw Park is locat-
ed on Harbor Drive and is
open from dawn to dusk.
There are clean-up mitts
available, plus plenty of park-
ing and restroom facilities.
The beach is a little more than
22 acres in size, of which 1
acre has been set aside specif-
ically for dogs. A fenced dog
play yard leads to the beach
area. This is the only beach in
the area where dogs are
allowed.
What better way to spend
the day than to watch your
best friend do the doggie pad-
dle. Brohard Paw Park is open
seven days a week.


Fossil, a 9-week-old lab wore
a patriotic bandanna for the
Fourth of July.

tened for the sound of drag-
on flies at the beach.

There was once a limerick contest



to see of all who could be best


As pets, please avoid acquisitions
Like dodos, whose living conditions
With owners whose pet skills
Fell short of the vets' bills
Meant these birds became mere traditions.


Pets can be found anywhere,
On land or sea or in air.
But soon or later,
If you chose a gator,
Your hands wll not match as a pa r.


in the Kingdom of Jiggletumsplat
The most popular pet'is the Prat, I
Bred just to annoy,
This brainless tife toy,
Sits on bar stools and talks through his hat --


I had a pet rooster named "HOKEY",
For waking me up he was "pokey"
Last time he was late.
He arrived on a plate,
Now "HOKEYs not "pokey" sad "jokey".


If you don't want a pet that's excessive
Or messy or loud or aggressive, J,
Then dear little fleas
Mightbe just the bee's knees
And so cute and alert and expressive!


My shrewd lIttlie poodle's inventive; '*'""
To safety on stairs he's attentive. ;-r-'-
With his towel in his teeth, -
Partly dragging beneath,
He climbs backward. He knows it's preventive. -


I ~ ir;. 1r19\.e ~ f ~ I


My pet is a yellowcanary.
There isn't a tune he; can't carry, .
My one source of rage .
is cleaning his cage,
But he sings 'til I'm not acting contrary,

July is Florida State Parks Month

r


Yes, July will mark a big cel-
ebration for Florida State
Parks, and this year, we cer-
tainly have a lot to celebrate.
How about joining us for a
weekend, a day, or an hour?
Time spent with nature is
time well spent.
Florida's state park system
is one of the largest in the
country, with 159 parks span-
ning more than 723,000 acres
and more than 100 miles of
sandy white beaches. Florida
State Parks were recently
awarded the National
Recreation and Parks Associ-
ation's Gold Medal Award,
honoring Florida as the
"Nation's Best State Park
Service." The Gold Medal
honors the nation's outstand-
ing park and recreation agen-
cies for excellence in the field
of recreation management.
This is the second time for
Florida, in as many entries.


We are the first and only
back-to-back winner in the
awards history.
Recently, a national camp-
ing reservation organization
honored the Florida Parks
Service in its annual awards
for America's Top Outdoor
Locations. Reserve America
recognized Florida State
Parks in 14 categories and
Oscar Scherer, your "local
natural wonder" was voted as
one of the Top 100 Family
Campgrounds, one of the Top
10 Bird-Watching Spots, and
one of the Top 25 Hiking Trails
- and this is before the Rails
to Trails is even open.
Did you know that back in
March, our Citizens Support
Organization, The Friends of
Oscar Scherer Park Inc., won
the state's "Best Volunteer
Project of the Year" award for
their fantastic renovations of
the hiking and nature trails? If
you have not been out to the
park in a while, you should
see what is going on to make
it more accessible and enjoy-
able. If you would like to be a
part. of the award-winning
volunteer group, then come
out and join us some
Wednesday morning.
The Friends of Oscar
Scherer Park Inc. was also
named a finalist for "CSO" of
the Year for all the contribu-
tions they have made to
improve the park, for the

By Vicki Connell, s
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I wear two, powerful
hearing aids everyday but
still miss large parts of
conversations. Why don't my
hearing aids help me to
understand it all?
A. Most people whd need help
hearing do not actively seek
help until 10 years after their
first symptoms appear! A vast
number of people know they
have a hearing loss but state
that they "aren't bad enough
yet" to invest in hearing aids.
The problem with this scenario
is that by the time they do feel
hearing aids are necessary, a
great portion of their hearing is
gone. Hearing aids cannot
restore hearing that is no longer
there. Hearing aids are just
that, aids, and can only
enhance hearing which is
diminished, but still there. An
audiologist can perform the
examinations necessary to
determine how much of your
residual hearing is still aidable.
This is important because if a
hearing aid is applying
amplification to a portion of
your hearing which is very
damaged, it may be adding
distortion to your already
damaged hearing system. Only
an audiologist is qualified to
evaluate the extend of damage
your hearing system has
incurred. Call the
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. at 492-4327 to schedule
an examination today.

A way out of gender misidentification


SLIM RANDLES
GUEST l Mi


It's kid time again around
here. Babies everywhere. Ba-
by trees growing in the yards,
baby calves romping in the
pastures, and baby humans
grinning and demanding bot-
tles and love.
There are puppies toddling
around the yards, kittens


peeking out from under the
houses where they were born,
and baby birds demanding a
meal that would gag a sick
dog off a gut truck., "
Now and then one of those
baby birds gets too ambitious
and takes a dive out of the
nest into the yard, leaving us
with a problem, as we have all
been told you can't touch
them or the mother will reject
them, but if we leave them on
the ground, they'll die.
Fortunately, most babies
are smart enough to stick
close to home and mama and
make us proud of how clever
they are.
The only real problem we
have with human babies is
guessing which gender they
are.
It's a terrible thing to tell


someone their baby girl is just
gorgeous, only to discover it's
a boy, and vice versa.
The baby doesn't care, but
it sure hurts mom and dad's
feelings.
This whole gender identifi-
cation is getting more difficult
with the way our society's
changing, too.
It used to be that baby boys
were dressed in blue, or
wrapped in a blue receiving
blanket. Little girls came like-
wise in pink.
This was a courtesy to us
baby admirers, who could
then tell instantly whether to
call the baby handsome or
pretty.
'But now you can't even rely
on the newborn baby with
pierced ears being a girl.
Now old Herb Collins is the


SMateal

I Material,

ia N- r e --

ial News Providers".-


one to show us the way on
this new dilemma.
Herb has been admiring
babies since God made dirt,
and he sailed right over this
gender-identification process
without missing a beat.
Whenever some young
person holds up an infant
these days and says, "This is
my new baby, Mr. Collins,"
Herb takes a minute to
admire the way the young-
ster's cheeks pooch out, and
then beams and says, "Now
THAT'S what I call a baby!"

Wright change will be beneficial

El Morro: San



Juan's sentinel


Big changes are expected
for Dallas-area travelers
thanks to a recent agreement
on the Wright amendment
drawn up by the cities of
Dallas and Fort Worth, and
American and Southwest air-
lines. Once these changes are
completed, you'll be able to
fly from Dallas to almost any-
* where in the United States
you need to go.
Under the compromise, it
will be eight years before car-
riers can fly nonstop from
Love Field to destinations
beyond the current Wright
amendment limits. The air-
port will also have to down-
size from its current 32 gates
to 20 gates. However,
through-ticketing will be al-
lowed immediately once the
agreement is approved.
With through-ticketing,
you can fly anywhere from
Dallas Love, but you'll have to
make a stop in one of the
cities currently allowed under
the Wright amendment. Lots
of Dallas-area travelers fly on
one-stop flights. Even now,
when you buy a ticket on
United or Delta from Dallas/
Fort Worth International Air-
port to Boston, that's
through-ticketing- the same
thing you'd be getting from
Southwest.
What's exciting to me is
that Southwest will be able to
sell fares from Dallas to cities
across the country including
Orlando, Los Angeles, Seattle
and many more. It can offer
sale fares, Internet fares, Ding!
fares or any fare to destina-
tions coast-to-coast. It's like
having a new carrier in town.
Business travelers stand to
save a bundle when through-
ticketing begins. Legacy air-
lines are currently charging
up to $849 one-way for non-
stop walk-up fares from Dal-
las to Los Angeles, and one-
stop flights demand $699
each way. Southwest has

capped its one-way fares at
$309, so when this legislation
is passed, business travelers
can save more than $1,000
round-trip by flying South-
west although you can
expect other airlines to drop
their fares to match. For that
kind of money, you'll be clam-
oring for a connecting flight.
While the rest of the coun-
try sees increasing fares, Dal-
las-area travelers will enjoy a
drop in fares. On noncompet-
itive routes, there were 12 fare
hikes in 2005 and six so far in
2006, for a total of 18 hikes in
18 months. Today, we have
advance-purchase leisure
fares of more' than $600
round-trip, while Southwest
caps walk-up fares at $618
round-trip, and its leisure
fares are much lower.
Seniors 65 or older will be
able to fly anywhere in the
country from Dallas for $139
or less one-way on South-


west. These fares have no
advance-purchase require-
ment, so you'll be able to trav-
el last-minute to Oakland,
Seattle or Providence for $278
round-trip. They also offer
youth fares and military fares.
One year from the date of
the passage, we will see a rise
in numbers of passengers
departing from both Love and
D/FW, and we will see num-
bers decrease at Austin and
Oklahoma City, because peo-
ple will no longer have to
drive there to get low fares.
Now the agreement heads
to Congress, and it could pass
by the end of the year. South-
West reacted within hours
when changes were made
allowing the carrier to fly to
Missouri, and we expect it to
react immediately this time,
too. It will probably add more
flights from Wright amend-
ment cities to get Dallas trav-
elers where they want to go.


For example, it could add
more nonstops from San
Antonio to the West Coast or
from St. Louis to the East
Coast.
American Airlines will be
hurt monetarily by these
changes, but we've seen them
face worse times. In 25 years,
American and Southwest will
still be standing strong.
As they say, it ain't over
until the fat lady sings. Some
folks in Congress don't want
to wait eight years for non-
stop service to their states,
and some may not want to
get rid of gates at Love Field,
so changes couldd.still,...be
made to the agreement.
There should be no doubt
that theWright amendment is
going away, but we don't
know all the details yet.

Canadian, Indian cultures come alive at D.C. fest


BY MARGARET HAIR
GUEST WRITER


For 'tourists flooding the
nation's recently flooded cap-
ital during the weekends sur-
rounding the Fourth of July,
the 40th annual Smithsonian
Folklife Festival is a chance to
share in North American tra-
ditions beyond hotdogs and
bottle rockets.
The 10-day, family-orient-
ed event, which started Fri-
day, will feature cultural pas-
times from the Canadian
province of Alberta, music
and dance from Chicago's
varied Latino community,
basket weaving by American
Indians and a special evening
concert series focusing on
black music in New Orleans.
Concert and exhibit tents
are set up on the National
Mall and admission is free.
Food and drinks from each
represented culture plus
the unrelated additions of
barbecue, ice cream and
lemonade are available for
about $3 to $10 a person.
Events start at 11:30 a.m.
and run until about 5:30 p.m.
from July 7 to July 11, with
evening concerts scheduled
from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. most
days.
Here are a few recommen-
dations, based on a random
sampling of the festival's
offerings from the first few
hours of opening day:
Sunday, July 9: Basket
weaving: Step into the
"Carriers of Culture: Living
Native Basket Traditions" area
of the festival to see how this
craft connects the cultural
traditions of Indian tribes
from Maine to Hawaii. More
than 75 basket weavers are on
hand to show festival-goers


how it's done, and tables are
set up for visitors to try their
hand at the art.
0 Canada: Granted, you
probably won't hear the
Canadian national anthem
while checking out the "Al-
berta at the Smithsonian" part
of the festival. What you will
hear is folk music from a vari-
ety of backgrounds that cov-
ers Celtic fiddlers, prairie-
rockers and Ukrainian danc-
ers. Evening concerts on July 9
and 10 are the main events,
but smaller-scale perfor-
mances are held throughout
each day.
Pumpkin bread: Each of
the four cultural themes has
its own concession stand,
offering main dishes, sides,
desserts and beverages. New
Orleans has chicken wings,
collards, and red beans and
rice. Canada has bison steak
sandwiches and Molson Ca-
nadian beer. The Cantina
Latina has Peruvian corn, cas-
sava and flan.
All of these things are prob-
ably very tasty. But the Native
Kitchen has huge slices of
pumpkin bread which
basically amount to giant
squares of moist, orange cake
topped with sugared pecans,
that could pass for a meal -
for $3. For about $6 less than
any of the full meals offered,
pumpkin bread is one of the
best food deals of the festival.
Monday, July 10: "Nuestra
Musica: Latino Chicago": The
Essence, Sones de Mexico,
AfriCaribe: The final concert
of the festival, this perfor-
mance showcases the musical
fusions born in heavily Latin
American communities in
Chicago. AfriCaribe special-
izes in Puerto Rican bomba
and plena rhythms and The

El Morro may be the fort of
all forts.
It is a sprawling, six-level
complex of darkened, weath-
ered sandstone that thwarted
pirates and invaders since it
was built in 1539 and 1540 to
protect San Juan and its har-
bor.
It fell once in 1598 in an
attack by land, not by sea.
El Morro rises 140 feet
above the water and features
ramparts, gun rooms, store-
rooms, barracks, ramps,
vaulted rooms, underground
chambers, turrets, towers,
tunnels, stairways, powder
rooms, a chapel and a large
interior courtyard.
Giant cisterns provided
drinking water for the 250
Spanish troops that typically
manned the massive fort with
60-foot-high walls up to 25
feet thick.
El Morro is studded with
small circular sentry boxes,
called "garitas," that have
become an island symbol in
Puerto Rico.
Perhaps its strangest fea-
ture is the New England-look-
ing lighthouse that was built
atop the fort in 1908.
The fort is one of the oldest
in the Western Hemisphere. It
was built only 47 years after
Christopher Columbus' first
trip to the New World. It's far
older than Jamestown, Va., or
Plymouth, Mass. It is real
American history, and today,
the fort is the No. 1 tourist
attraction in Old San Juan and
Puerto Rico's best-known
fortress. The fort gets 2 million
visitors a year.
The views from El Morro
are striking. But the old fort
and grassy area around it -
together they cover 74 acres
- oozes history and charm. It
is a military playground to
explore on foot.
The fort's official name is
Castille de San Felipe del
Morro or the Castle of St.
Philip of the Headland. It was
built at the end of a long nar-
row islet and named for the
patron saint of Spain's King

Philip II (1556-1598).
El Morro was one of two
great forts built to protect San
Juan and Spanish shipments
of treasures from America
back to Europe. The other was
Castillo de San Cristobal. It is
about a mile to the east.
El Morro's original struc-
ture was simple: a round
stone tower on a headland
near the harbor entrance. It
was so small that it could hold
only four cannons.
Its location is what is valu-
able, sticking out on a rocky
point at the edge of the sea
entrance to San Juan's harbor.
The still-standing tower
was incorporated into the
expanded fort, but it can be
seen only from inside the fort.
A shell from the 1898 bom-
bardment by the U.S. Navy is
still lodged in its walls.
El Morro its name
means promontory or point
was then greatly expanded
and strengthened between
1539 and 1786. Cannons were
placed on four of the six levels
and designed to thwart sea
attacks.
Its cannons at the water
level tried to bounce cannon
balls off the water and sink
enemy ships. Its higher-up
guns had a distinct advantage
over guns at sea. They had
greater range and visibility.
Those guns tried for hull and
deck damage.

VANITY from last Green Sheet


appreciated the verses she
chose from Galatians and
Thessalonians, instead of hit-
ting me with one from
Ecclesiastes 1: 2: "vanity of
vanities: all is vanity."
Time creeps up on one as
surely as the touch of gray at
the temples creeps up and
takes over the whole head.
What I need is a politically
correct photo one that
fudges reality without really
lying. That, or a portrait by the
artist Basil Hallward in Oscar
Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian
Gray."
If you remember the story
line, young and beautiful
Dorian Gray (as in my previ-
ous photo) pledges his soul if
the portrait will bear the bur-
den of age and infamy rather
than show on his uncreased
physiognomy. Sure enough,
as the years pass his face
never changes, but the por-
trait does, becoming so
dreadful Dorian hides it in the


attic. This simile stretches my
particular situation in both
directions young and
beautiful is a bit of an over-.
statement as is, I 'sincerely
hope, my age and infamy.
But, you probably get the
point without further elabo-
ration.
Photos don't age. The fact
was brought home to me one
evening a few years ago when
my friend of longest standing
(better said than, "my oldest
friend") were reviewing slides
of the girlfriends we dated
when we, and they, like
Dorian Gray, were young and
beautiful.
In our mind's eye we were
seeing them as they were,
until we remembered we had
recently met one of the beau-
ties coming out of a local
podiatrist's office, with her
granddaughter, wearing a
pair of those funny shoes.
Realizing that a lady we
recalled principally for having

GRAPHIC COURTESY OF DICK HARRISON

great legs now had "bad feet"
put a damper on the rest of
the evening.
Before allowing the photo
replacement, I considered
coughing up enough cash to
have a professional portrait
taken by a really creative pho-
tographer one who has the


equipment, gauze-covered
lens,and expertise to do what
Elizabeth Taylor's has been
able to do for her. These days
there are ways to turn creases
into mere gullies, but I've
searched theWeb and haven't
found anywhere I can buy
Botox by the gallon.
I guess I'm stuck with the
photo you see here until one
of you readers writes in and
suggests a better alternative.
One thing you can be sure
of: You'll never get a look at
the one I've hidden in the
attic!

This is cell phone courtesy month


White lightning...


.




FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL UMNI-

Someone in their almighty
wisdom decided the world
needs a cell phone courtesy
month. I certainly agree. This
is the month everyone should
turn off their cell phones
when they are enjoying din-
ner with friends and not talk
on the phone while sitting in
the stands at a ball game.
Certainly we shouldn't have
to dedicate a month to tell
people to turn off the cell
phone in church. Please.
News from MainStreet
Enjoy a relaxing Friday
afternoon starting at 1 p.m. at
the KMI Venice Mall building
on Tampa Avenue. On the
second Friday of each month
the merchants sponsor a
fashion show with music and
snacks. It is a great chance
to see the spectacular clothes
offered at the mall that is of-
ten while downtown shop-


ping. The next show is on
July 14.
Be sure to stop at Auntie's
Attic. Lee Ball, Marcella and
Debbie Marshall have a fan-
tastic selection of vintage
clothing including wedding
gowns and formals.
What a donation
Art Schotz, Jan Aronson,
Ruth Kaal, Ed Campbell and
Steve Harrison recently join-
ed other Friends of the Ven-
ice Symphony in presenting a
check to the Venice Sym-
phony for $25,000. The mon-
ey comes from fundraising
events like the Jazz Affair, the
fashion show and the Sym-
phony store. Three cheers to
the Friends and to everyone
who attended and contrib-
uted to the events.
Sandra Terry, director of
the Laurel Civic Center re-
cently received a grant from
the Kathleen E Cellura Fund
of the Community Founda-
tion of Sarasota County. The
money provides field trips
and special awards to chil-
dren participating in Laurel
Civic Center activities.
New in town
Kelly and Melissa Caldwell
recently introduced Zachary
Mason to everyone at the
Sertoma Club Fun and Games
Reverse Raffle. The 14-day-old


newborn seemed to enjoy all
the attention. Zachary has an
almost 2-year-old brother
named Brooks. Warmest con-
gratulations to this nice family.
Card sharks
Barbara and Henry Price
like playing bridge and enjoy
it even more when they
win. They recently played
with five couples that in-
cluded Bob and Sue Vedder.
Barbara won the high score
for women and Henry had
the high score for men and
for the evening. The dynamic
duo are enjoying their brag-
ging rights.
Pat on the back
Lois Steketee enjoys
spending time at the Venice
children's fountain with her
grandchildren. She recently
brought them in a wagon
and proceeded to give wagon
rides to many of the children
at the fountain.
The only requirement was
as she pulled them around
the fountain the boys and
girls had to signal their arms
and say, "choo, choo."
Not only did the children
enjoy Lois, but also everyone
who was watching.
By the way, Lois designed,
and created the train used by
the Historic Society in the
Venice Christmas Parade.

Protecting your pet from the heat,


GRACE JOYCE
PET COLUMNIST

As the weather in our area
begins to heat up, St. Francis
Animal Rescue wants to re-
mind pet owners that sum-
mer heat can be very danger-
ous for pets.
Heatstroke is a very real
problem in our area. Animals
can easily overheat and die
within a very short time so
plenty of water should be to
pets during this time of the
year. This is especially true
when animals are left in a car
on a hot day (even with the


windows cracked), or left any-
where outside without shaded
. ot ample amounts of watef.k,
On an 85-degree day, even
with the car windows open,
the internal car temperature
can reach 120 degrees in just
30 minutes.
Don't risk your animal's
life! If your pet has been
exposed to excessive heat,
watch for the warning signs,
including excessive salivation
and panting, fast pulse rate,
vomiting and high body tem-
perature. Heatstroke can
cause brain damage and
death. If you notice your pets
exhibiting any of these symp-
toms, act quickly by immers-
ing the animals in cool water,
pouring cool water over
them, or placing ice packs on
their heads. Once your pets
cool off, seek medical treat-
ment from a veterinarian.
Prevention is the best
treatment, so remember
these summer safety rules:
1. NEVER take your pets with
you in the car if you plan to
leave them unattended for
ANY length of time.


2. If your pet is left outside on
warm, days, provide protec-
tion frnm the stin and access
to plenty of fresh, cool drink-
ing water. Strenuous activity
and excitement should also
be avoided on warm days.
3. When traveling, carry
fresh, cool water with you and
give your pet small amounts
frequently..

We're creatures of habit


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
COLUMNIST


Why do we do what we do
because we always do it? Well,
let's use a fictitious name of a
Mosquito Tooth Decay Foun-
dation. For years this was a
major problem for young
mosquitos. Years and years of
research finally resolved the
problem. It was finally solved,
so it no longer was a medical
problem. But lid the founda-
tion cease to exist? Of course
not. They did find other good
research projects and contin-
ued to do a lot of good.
Did you ever stop to think
why we have a secretary or
treasurer report at meetings?
Does anyone listen? Of course
one needs a record of motions
passed and filed. Or do we
read them because that's
something we've always
done?
So your organization has a
money-making project each
year. Do they do it because
the money is essential or
-because they've always .done
it?
Everyone is so busy these
days that nobody wants to
work on them. Another do-
gooder group has a dinner
every Saturday night. Vol-
unteers do the cooking; serv-
ing and cleaning up; but
nobody wants to do that
either.
We -now," bfeourse, it
wtiohuld- be a sadder world
without the .good some of
these organizations do.

Si'F promotions

announced

BY PAM WILSON
GUEST WRITER

Senior Friendship Centers'
Chief Operating Officer Erin
McLeod has announced the
following promotions effec-
tive June 2006:
Elder Advocate Keith
Backhaus has
been promnot-
ed to director
of Friendship
at Home Pro-
gram., corpo-
rate vide.
m C o,:-
muniry .tr- ".$. ''k
ices Manager .
Barbara Celn- Backhaus
ar has been
promoted to Community
Services director for Sarasota
County, with responsibility
for Sarasota and Venice
Nutrition and Senior Centers.
Public Information Offi-
cer Peg Palmer has been pro-
moted to director of Com-
munication and Public Edu-
cation, corporate wide.
Communications/Public
Educatiotm Administrative As-
sistant Pamela Wilson has
been promoted to Public
Information Officer, for our
northern service area.
"These are exciting times
for Senior Friendship Centers
as \ve look for new ways to
help older adults make the
most of the years past 50 and
older, and to continue to pro-
vide the programs and ser-
vices needed to for them to
maintain their health and
independence," McLeod said,
adding, "with strong leader-
ship and the support of our
entire team, we will continue
to strengthen Senior Friend-
ship Centers to better serve
Southwest Florida."


I'm not trying to knock tra-
ditidn because obviously they
are essential to all cultures.
But you know what? After 80,
some years, of eating turkey
on Thanksgiving, because
that is khat one does. I've
decided I don't like turkey. If I
had my druthers, I guess I'd
ask for boiled shrimp or lob-1
ster
At the church my son
attends in North Carolina,!
there is a contemporary ser-'
vice, as there are in many
other churches. It is a break-'
away from things that have
always been done, and you
know what? The majority of
members there prefer the,
contemporary service. Be-
cause I am old, I would prob-
ably, stick with the traditional,
service. Habits die hard. Why
do most schools close in the:
summer? I believe studies
show that students lose a lot
of what they learned over the
summer. I think it all started
because young men were
needed on the farm at harvest
time. But do parents want to
keep the status quo because
that is the way it's always
been? Many countries are
moving ahead in the world
partly because they have
longer school days and hours.
I know I'm getting too seri-
ous here.
Most people, including my
three children, have beautiful
lawns because that is what
everybody has.
Why do we do what we
always do like putting on fer-
tilizer, weed killer, constantly


watering it and constantly
cutting it? Seems silly to me,
but my daughter says she
does it because she likes to
see a beautiful lawn. A friend
in Big Rapids had a lawn of
bark intersperced with a few
flower beds. I thought it most
attractive. Made sense to me.,
In Florida, many avoid the
grassy problem with xero-
scoping.
I wanted to poke fun at
some of the three-day holi-
days, but my friend, Jeanne,
ixnaved that idea. I know one
thing for sure. No one in
Washington would ever do
away with them because gov-
ernment officials love their
three-day getaways to their
boats, second homes and to
their back yards. Think of the
lost accomplishments. In
Washington, all the business-
es and schools are closed on
those three-day holidays. And
Columbus Day ... was he so
great? I dunno.
So, being creatures of
habit, most of us eat cereal or
bacon and eggs for breakfast
in the morning. If we lived in
Japan, we might have a habit
of eating raw fish in the
morning. In Japan, that was
the only Japanese meal that I
rebelled at.

The day camp offers three age groups for kids and fills the days with many different fun activities.


BY KELEIGH KNABEL
GONDOLIER SUN INTERN


The kids at the Woodmere
Day Camp are having the time
of their lives, whether they're
sliding down the slip 'n' slide,
petting a starfish or going on
a field trip to GWhiz Science
Museum.
The camp runs every day,
7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. It is run
by a staff of qualified super-
visors and caring counselors.
Cynthia Burnley, the pro-
gram coordinator for Wood-
mere Park, said, "I don't want


to brag, but my counselors
are cream of the crop."
The counselors care for
the kids as if they were their
own, and parents love that
aspect.
The day camp offers three
different age groups from first
grade to ninth grade.
A typical day can't even
be explained. The camp does
something unique almost
every day, but fills in the
blanks with free play, movies,
healthy snacks and outdoor
activities.
Indoor soccer and hockey,


dodgeball, arts and crafts,
four-square, bingo and play-
grounds are just a few of the
activities offered. Field trips
are taken to places like the
bowling alley, theYMCAWater
Park and Mote Marine. There
isn't a dull moment.
Kids bring their own lunch-
es and must be signed in by
their parents in the morning.
They are required to use the
buddy system wherever they
go.
For information on the day
camps offered in Sarasota
Counm.. call 861-9870.


Savannah Pocevic grins as she uses soapy hands to push hair
out of her face.


Camp counselor Tony Fusco shows the campers how it's done.


Counselor Marisa Callaghan sprays camper Jonathon Gailloux on his trip down the slide.


Exhibiting perfect form, Jessie Goetz concentrates on sliding all the way down the slip and slide.


Kayla Anderson enjoys her bubbly trip down the slip and slide.


Kayla Anderson and Dakota Cometa wait in line as Andrew Walker runs to his turn on the slip
and slide.
