Epiphany Cathedral honors Frank J. Dewane,
the man who will succeed Bishop John J. Nevins
when he retires in January 2007.

Tuesday afternoon at
Epiphany Cathedral inVenice,
Cadtholics celebrated die Epis-
copal Ordination of their new
bishop, Frank J. Dewane, Co-
adjutor Bishop of the Diocese

of Venice in Florida. A biog-
raphy of Dewane appears
elsewhere in today's paper.
Migrant farm workers sat
quietly beneath the trees
outside, waiting to catch a
glimpse of the new bishop,
and also of Bishop John J.
Nevins, the man who has
gone to bat for them many
times during his 22 years as
the bishop of Venice.
Inside the cathedral,
1,500 of the 223,000 Cath-
olics in the Diocese of
Venice sat quietlywaiting for
the procession to begin, a
procession that would set in
motion the first ordination
of a bishop in Venice. Also in


the city for the ceremony
were four cardinals, 22 bish-
ops, 200 priests, 45 nuns,
deacons and their wives,
seminarians, Catholic schol-
ars, representatives of the
city, other religious congre-
gations and groups such as
the Knights of Malta, the
Knights of Columbus and
Catholic women's groups.
They arrived by foot, in mid-
sized cars, SUVs and a
super-stretch Hummer.
The lay members of the
congregation clutched their
prized tickets to the biggest
event for Venice Catholics
since July 17, 1984, when
Pope John Paul II an-
nounced the creation of two
new Florida dioceses; Palm
Beach and Venice, the latter
carved from pieces of the
archdiocese of Miami and
incorporating the counties


of Manatee, Sarasota, Char-
lotte, Lee, DeSoto, Hardee,
Highlands, Collier, Hendry
and Glades, a 9,035-square-
mile area, roughly 140 miles
long from north to south
and 70 miles wide. At the
time, the diocese represent-
ed 116,000 Catholics in 39
parishes. Today there are 55
parishes, 13 missions and
chapels of convenience.
At '2 p.m.. the tm'o-hour
service began with what
seemed a never-ending
stream of bishops. Gowned
in cream-colored robes,
they came down the main
aisle, two by two, pausing
briefly to kiss the altar before
heading to the back of the
altar area to take their seats
for the ordination.
And still they came ...

And the announcer said,
"It's that time again, ladies
and gentlemen, for the 11th
Annual Shop With a Cop
Event."
Venice Police Officer Dave
Aker is one of several key
players in the highly acclaim-
ed program.
"Several years ago, the
Venice chapter of the Fra-
ternal Order of Police and its
associate members launched
its 'Shop With a Cop' back to
school program for disadvan-
taged children ... Aker said.
"By all accounts, the program'
has been a great success and
many children were able to
begin the school year better
prepared..."
Yes, it's the same drill every
year, but nobody ever gets
tired of it. Put another way, it
ain't broke, so nobody needs
to fix it.
The event was held Mon-
day.
"We had 12 children from
the first through the 10th
grades," Aker said, "and, there
were 10 Venice police officers
and staff to ride herd on the
kids during the day."
The event is so exciting
and meaningful to the adults,
that historicall' more offi-
cers aid staff volunteer than
there are children to chaper-


one.
It's always a coin toss as to
who had the better time, the
kids or the cops.
"I've had kids come up to
me years later and say, 'Hey,
you're the officer who took
me shopping years ago,' "
Aker said. "It's a great feeling,
you know..."
Up and at'em
The day started when the
kids got picked up at the
Salvation Army headquarters
at 8:30 a.m.
They went to the Venice
police station on Ridgewood
Avenue, had doughnuts, juice
and milk. They also got a tour
of the police station.
Venice Police Chief Julie
Williams gave each student a
backpack.
Then, the cops and kids
paired up for the ride down to
Wal-Mart in a dozen or so
police cars.
Shopped till they dropped
The shopping took about
three hours. The kids were
just building up a head of
steam, but the adults started
looking a little bleary-eyed.
The officers and kids
shopped from previously pre-
pared lists of school supplies
and clothing sizes.
Aker said each student had

BY KELEIGH KNABEL
GONDOLIER SUN INTERN

Bishop Frank J. Dewane is
the product of a farm up--
bringing in Cooperstown,
Wis. Born March 9, 1950, he
learned much appreciation
for the life through his experi-
ences on the farm.-
Dewane earned a master
degree in international ad-
ministration from American


University, which stemmed
from his interest in Russia. He
also studied theology and
canon law in Rome.
After graduating, he mov-
ed to Russia and worked for
NBC in Moscow. When he
was about 30, he began to
consider priesthood. He mov-
ed back to the United States
to make his decision.
Dewane returned to the
United States and got a job for


PepsiCo, where his boss was
helpful in discussing religion.
He thought there were other
things that he needed to do
before he became a priest.
On July 16, 1988, he was
ordained into priesthood by
then-Bishop Adam Maida for
the Green Bay Diocese.
From 1995 to 2001 he
served with the Pontifical
Council Cor Unum in Rome
to coordinate the charitable


work of the pope and pro-
mote charitable works
throughout the universal
church.
From 2001 until present,
Dewane was undersecretary
of the Pontifical Justice and
Peace Council.
On Sept. 27, 2002, he was
named monsignor-chaplain
to Pope John Paul II, and was
named coadjutor to Bishop
Nevins of the Venice Diocese


on April 25, 2005.
He was also part of Vatican
delegations in 1996 to the
World Conference Against the
Commercial Sexual Exploi-
tation of Children and the
World Food Summit.
In 1998, he was asked to
join the Vatican delegation at
the diplomatic conference
instituting the International
Criminal Court in Rome.
He has been a member of


several delegatigls"of the
Holy See, which began in
1991, and to nmlr g' .nter-
national and United Nations
Conferences and Suri-mits.
He will take over when
Bishop Nevins retires in Jan-
uary 2007.

According to a program
note, "Because Catholics be-
lieve that the celebration of
the Eucharist is a sign of the
reality of the, oneness of faith,
life and worship, members of
those churches with whom
we are not fully united are
ordinarily not invited to Holy
Communion.
Eucharist sharing in excep-
tional circumstances by other
Christians requires permission
according to the directives of
the diocesan bishop and the
provisions of canon law... ."
Those of other faiths were
asked to offer prayers for peace
and unity of the human family.
The final prayer, was from
Dewane: "Please remember
me in your prayers as I do
remember you in mine."


A new bishop and religious
unity reigned in Venice Tues-
day.

Sewer expansion to begin

From the July 25, 1981, Gondolier


BY RAY PORTER
STAFF WRITER

Plans are nearly complete
and interest among construc-
tion companies is expected
to be high on the city's mas-'
sive sewer and water project
slated to begin in October.
According to City Engineer
Ken Anderson, the entire util-
ity project is expected to take
a year and a half and will
provide sewer and water ser-
vice to the entire island por-
tion of Venice.
More than $5 million of
the city's recently approved
$15.7 million bond issue will
be spent for the utility im-
provements and bidding on
the project is anticipated to
begin in September
"The work will be con-
ducted in all of the island
portion of the city not yet in
the city," said Anderson.
Construction will center
around the Harbor Drive area
and parts of Bayshore Estates,
with scattered ground-break-


ing throughout the city.
Anderson said'he doesn't
expect any major traffic
problems to be created by
the project, but noted city res-
idents will be inconvenienc-
ed at times by dust and dirt
generated by the work, which
will involve heavy machinery.
"The contractor will be
limited to the number of
streets he can work on at a
given time," said Anderson.
"In the case of water lines, we
won't be tearing up the street
itself, but with sewer lines,
some roads will be half torn
oht while work progresses."
The city recently took bids
for a smaller project at the
Municipal Mobile Home
Park and received 26 sets of
plans and took 15 bids for.
the work. Judging from these
figures, Anderson said he ex-
pects the large project to
garner numerous bidders.
He noted that his office has
already" received phone calls
from companies in Michigan
interested in the project. *

Expensive gas


Gasoline costs about $3 a
gallon. If a hurricane gets in
the Gulf...
The price will go up more.
War in the Middle East is
said to be responsible for the
recent spike in pump prices.
Investors are nervous. This
week, crude oil futures in
Nigeria hit $109 a, barrel for
year's end. When crude sells
for $100 a barrel, the pump
price is projected to be $5 a
gallon.
Filling your car's 20-gallon
tank would be $100. Can \ou
afford that? Can service
workers? And beyond your
gas costs, you'll pay more to
government and businesses
as the\`pass on their increased
'costs.

Do clothes make the student?


Women's Resource


Center offers assistance


Elementary educators swear by the benefits of

school uniforms, but studies don't back up the

conventional wisdom that they make for better


pupils.


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


It's a question that has
bounced around the eduta-
tional system for years: Will a
student perform better per-
sonally and academically if he
or she wears a uniform to
school?
It depends on whom you
ask..
Cranberry Elementary
School in North Port has had a
school'uniform policy in place
since its inception in 2003, and
according to the school's Web
site, it works.
"School uniforms for stu-
dents in public schools are
gaining popularity across the
country," says an open letter to
parents found on the site.
"Reports indicate that schools
with a mandatory school-wide
uniform policy have improved
attendance, better behavior,
fewer discipline referrals and
greater school spirit. Children
seem to become more fo-
cused on academics."
Theresa Baus, the princi-
pal of Venice Elementary
School, believes the school's
uniform policy encourages
kids to feel part of a team,
much like soccer or tee-ball
players, which aids in the
learning process.
"'It is an absolutely won-
derful program," she said. "I
think that the uniforms (kids
wear in sporting events) give
them that sense of belonging,


that sense of being a part of
something, a group, a team,"
she said. "Those skills carry
over to school, and hopefully
what they learn here about
working together carries over
to those team situations as
well."

Looking professional
Although uniforms are
becoming more common at
the elementary school-level,
middle and upper schools
don't follow suit.
Paul Paquette, assistant
principal at North Port High
School, has taught at the ele-
mentary, middle and high
school levels. In his experi-
ence, kids must be given an
opportunity to grow, to make
decisions of their own and
express their individuality in
the years following elemen-
tary school.
"The dress code going way
back in the '60s when I was in
school was always a pain in
the butt," he said. "We wore
cut-off shorts with holes in
them and the peace sign on
them. Miniskirts started back
then. I can remember loving
girls with miniskirts on in
fact, following them around.
"So can they be called a
distraction? They can be."
North Port High School
has gone to the "academy sys-
tem," Paquette said, where
students choose to be in tech-
nology, small business and
entrepreneurship, perform-


ing arts or leadership, to
name a few. The aim is to get
students ready to go on to
success in professional life..
'We believe that you
should look professional," he
added. "So that's what we try
to teach."
NPHS's dress code forbids
clothing exposing the midriff.
Skirts and shorts must not
rise any higher on the leg than
the spot to which a student's
fingertips extend when the
arms are resting at the side.
No spaghetti, straps are
allowed for, girls' tops and
boys may not wear sleeveless
shirts. Hats and beachwear
are not permitted, though
sandals are tolerated.

Opinions vary
It maybe true that present-
ing a clean-cut appearance
will help in promoting a posi-
tive first impression in the
business world, but does it
tell prospective employers or
clients what they need to
know about a person's
integrity, character and intel-
lect?
According to an article that
appeared in the Brigham
Young University Education
and Law Journal, 'Although
dress codes are increasing in
popularity throughout the
United States, educators do
not uniformly agree upon the
benefits produced by these
regulations. There is no cer-
tainty that dress codes reduce
school violence or improve
academic achievement."
Those opposing the
school-uniform dress code
contend that it breeds ani-
mosity and encourages run-
ins with school officials,. con-


.tributing to an erosion of dis-
cipline. In cases where grades
improve, it's difficult to link
test scores with clothing.
Some opposition groups,
such as the Texas-based
group Asserting Parental
Rights It's Our Duty, insist
that uniforms squelch the
sense of free expression and
self-esteem that children
need for healthy develop-
ment. Others, such as The
Parental Action Committee of
Polk County in Florida, argue
that dress codes, often
applied in urban schools, are
an undue burden on the poor,
including many minority
families.
In a study published in The
Journal of Educational
Research, no connection was
established between uniform
use and "school commitment
variables, including absen-
teeism, behavior or sub-
stance abuse. ... In addition,
students wearing uniforms
did not appear to have any
significantly different acade-
mic preparedness, pro-
school attitudes or peer
group structures with pro-
school attitudes than other
students."
So do uniforms help kids
or not?
Paquette put it this way:
"I do believe that when a
person dresses better, they
feel better about themselves,"
he said. "That can be in a vari-
ety of types of dress. It doesn't
have to be in one specific uni-
form. But we're in the real
world.
"You wouldn't want to go
looking for a lawyer with
chains hanging down, would
you?"

For some women, the ad-
vances of the past four dec-
ades in gender. equality have
little meaning. They are too
overwhelmed coping with the
crises in their day-to-day
lives.
When women find them-
selves unable to deal with
divorce, abandonment or the
death or disability of a
spouse, they have a place they
can turn to for help.
The Women's Resource
Center of Sarasota County
offers all sorts of assistance to
women struggling to deal
with life's daily problems.
The center's resources are
available to any woman in the
county, and most of its pro-
grams are offered at little or
no cost. No one is turned
away due to inability to pay.
Many of the Women's Re-
source Center's programs fo-
cus on improving self-es-
teem, preparing women for
the work force and helping
them gain independence.
Through their programs,
clients can learn and improve
computer skills and prepare
themselves to meet today's
workplace.
Peer counseling offers
women a chance to talk with
other women from all walks
of life, with an opportunity to
exchange ideas and opinions
and share guidance and
plans. In one-on-one coun-
seling sessions, women can
begin to tackle their issues
with assistance and encour-
agement from others who
have "been there." The Wom-

Exemptions allowing developers to pre-clear parcels scrutinized


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

When Sarasota County
recently agreed to close a
regulatory loophole that has
allowed developers to buy
earthmoving permits and
bulldoze land without deter-
mining whether there are
endangered wildlife species
on the premises, it didn't
silence environmental
critics.
As a result, on July 11, the
county commission agreed
to hold a special workshop
and discuss concerns that
irresponsible land-clearing
practices continue on parcels
which have received bogus
agricultural designations so
they can avoid pre-develop-
ment environmental over-
sight.
"There is an ongoing con-
versation among environ-
mental groups about matters


before this board such as land
clearing," Commissioner Jon
Thaxton said. "Some people,
including, myself, perceive
what's going on as side-slip-
ping to avoid regulations
under the guise of agricul-
ture."
County officials are sup-
posed to be reviewing earth-
moving and land develop-
ment regulations so endan-
gered wildlife isn't killed when
vegetation is scraped off land
before construction, but they
reported late this spring that
possible changes might not
be ready for 'consideration
until next year.
While a year may not
seem long to county employ-
ees who work in offices that
sell permits for new develop-
ment, it's not fast enough for
wildlife protection advocates
who believe bulldozers have
already killed far too many
gopher tortoises, indigo


snakes, fox squirrels and
Florida scrub jays.
A recent exchange of e-'
mails between Sierra Club
members, resource protec-
tion officials and commis-
sioners specifically addressed
the county's permissive pol-
icy of pre-development land
clearing on a Gulf Gate area
parcel with a questionable
agricultural exemption.
Inquiries about the coun-
ty's permit review process
and-an environmental survey
were explained away because
the parcel had an "agricult-
ural exemption." It was pre-
cleared with a bulldozer, but
there was the promise of a
future "species survey" on
the empty site.
The responses didn't satisfy
Thaxton.
"What about the waiting
period for pre-clearing?" he
asked. "Do we have any ordi-
nances that protect listed


species from this pseudo,
make-believe, fake, mislead-
ing, false, counterfeit, phony,
bogus, sham 'agricultural'
clearing?"
Over an eight-day period
beginning late June, the ex-
changes between Sierra Club
members, resource protec-
tion employees and Thaxton
continued. County Adminis-
trator Jim Ley and Commis-
sioner Nora Patterson finally
weighed in on July 6.
A day later, Ley indicated
he -had seen members of the
county staff "peppered" by
commissioners' questions
over the last several months.
He suggested more of the
same could lead to "miscom-
munications" and, at worst, a
"sense of disarray." He pro-
posed the workshop.
On May 24, a timetable
for wildlife protection rules
revisions was discussed in an
e-mail letter written by Amy


Meese, the county's natural
resources general manager. It;
describes a two-fold process
that could extend into the
middle of 2007, or even later.
"The earthmoving code re-
vision will be brought to the
(county commission) this fall
for authorization to be adver-
tised and scheduled for public
hearing in early winter," she
responded. "We chose this
time frame for several rea-
sons."
Meese explained there are
two obstacles to moving
expeditiously with rules
changes., The first is,. that
comprehensive plan policy
revisions to protect wildlife
are under review by state
authorities and will not go
into effect until this sum-
mer.
"The other consideration
is that in July many of our
seasonal residents will be out
of the area," she continued.


"In the past, the county has
received negative feedback
for enacting major code
amendments when a sub-
stantial portion of our pop-
ulation is not in town."
Meese's letter also stated
that county's land develop-
ment regulation changes are
drafted by another division of
local government planning
and development services -
and would not be submitted
for the commission's consid-
eration until sometime next
year.
While the county contin-
ues to wrestle with its wild-
life protection commitments,
other Southwest Florida
communities are taking a
more direct approach.
Last week, a Marco Island
code enforcement board
fined a developer, contractor
and community association
$25,000 for killing gopher
tortoises.


County and Swiftmud


address nutrient pollution


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

One cost of development
in Sarasota County is hidden
in the bays and estuariesbof
area waters. Nitrogen, from
septic tanks,';2rt-iliers and
10 r .
roadw_ y n rofs penetrate
them1,, ngg eco-systems
for t~hworse:
The single worst villain for
coastal waters is nitrogen,
which fertilizes algae that
smother aquatic plants and
block sunlight. As dead plants
and algae decompose, they
use up the oxygen in the
water, killing fish and bot-
tom-dwelling animals.
Septic tanks have been a
major contributor to the eco-
logical problems of Sarasota
Bay, according to Dr. Gary
Raulerson, senior environ-
mental scientist of the Sara-
sota Bay Estuary Program.
'..No -more septic systems
will be permitted by the
county," he said. "When the
Phillippi Creek program is
completed, it will eliminate
14,000 septic tanks. The re-
sults will be dramatic."
The amount of nitrogen
in the bay will be reduced by
as much as 20 percent."

tion efforts to clean up Sara-

sota Bay have been under
way since it was named an
"estuary of national signifi-
cance" in the federal Water-
shed Act of 1987. That pro-
gram has been conducted for
the past several years by a
partnership that includes
Manatee and Sarasota coun-
ties, the cities of Sarasota
and Bradenton, Longboat Key,
the -Florida Department of
Environmental Protection"
and the Southwest 'Florida
Water Management District,
known as Swiftmud.
Reducing nutrients
Under an 18-month dead-
line to come up with plans to
clean up coastal waters, the
county and Swiftmud have
been developing a computer-
ized pollutant-loading model
to identify natural nutrient
levels in the bay, and collect
samples to determine what
they are.
According to the county
water quality officer, they are
sharing the cost. The dead-
line was imposed by the
federal Environmental Pro-
tection Agency, which sued
Florida for not enforcing the
federal Clean Water Act of
1972.
Nutrient problems related
to nitrogen overloads from


year's event.
Then, everybody went to
Sal and Tony's Pizzeria for

cream, then home.
"Once again," Aker said,


fertilizer run-off, dissolved
oxygen and fecal coliform
have prompted the state to
lean on the county to accel-
erate the clean-up. Of par-
ticular concern to the EPA is
the state of surface waters, to
determine if they are "im-
paired."
Lemon and Roberts bays,
Curry and South creeks in
Nokomis, Blackburn Bay
and North Creek in Osprey
are among the 15 impaired
bod-ies of water being test-
ed.
. SBEP suggests that better
planting can reduce nutrient
loading. It can be done in a
number of ways, including:
1) reducing the -use of
chemical lawn fertilizers;
2) use of organic-based
fertilizers that- release nutri-
ents slower, and are not eas-
ily washed out in heavy
rains;
3) planting grass instead of
sod;
4) watering grass less often
but for longer periods of time,
subject to community water-
ing restrictions;
5) replacement of lawns
with perennial ground cover
or perennial beds;
6) replacement of lawns.
and exotic species with na-
tive plants.

Wild chase ends in man's arrest


BY RYAN BOYD
STAFF WRITER


A man wanted on an
escape charge in New Jersey
led Sarasota County Sheriff's
deputies on a wild, high-
speed chase from Venice to
Englewood Monday night
before he was captured.
The car chase reached
speeds of 100 mph, on U.S.
41 and involved a Sheriff's
Office helicopter' swooping
over local neighborhoods. A
Sheriff's Office cruiser also
was damaged when the
man allegedly hit it head-
on early in the pursuit, ac-
cording to a Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office report.
Timothy John Miers, 39,
of 159 Durant Ave., Staten
Island, N.Y., was arrested on
numerous charges, including
aggravated assault on a po-
lice officer,. fleeing to elude
at high speed, possession of
drug paraphernalia, reckless
driving and damage to
property. He was held with-
out bond at the Sarasota
County jail.
Deputies spotted Miers at
around 10 p.m. Monday at
the Days Inn motel on U.S. 41
in Venice. He took off when a
deputy's car followed him, the
Sheriff's Office report said,
eventually, leading deputies
on a chase through south-
ern Sarasota County.
Deputies tried to stop
the suspect south of U.S. 41
at Jacaranda Boulevard, but
Miers made a sharp turn
into the South Venice Wal-
Mart parking lot, traveling


45 mph through the lot and
continuing through the park-
ing lots of the nearby Books-
A-Million and OutBack Steak-
house, police said.
During the chase, the
suspect jumped several
curbs before slamming
head-on into a patrol car
and striking a parked vehicle
in the lot. He took off south
on U.S. 41 with deputies in
pursuit. When the suspect's
silver Dodge Durango got up
to speeds of 100 mph, the
deputies backed off and
called in the Sheriff's Office
helicopter.
The pursuit continued
onto River Road as the driver
swerved in and out of traffic,
the sheriffs report stated.
The chase continued into
an Englewood neighbor-
hood at the comer of East
Dearborn Street and Indiana
Avenue, where the suspect
jumped out of his SUV and
fled on foot.
Dogs were brought in to
search the neighborhood,
and Miers was found hiding
in heavy brush in the 200
block of E. Wentworth St.,
police said.
"A car came zooming
down the road," said Jeanne
Cadman, who lives on
Wentworth Street, "and the
helicopter was coming down
the road after this guy with
the spotlight. Two police
cars at the end of the road
blocked him," she said.
"He ditched the car and
started running in the back-
yards of the neighborhood
and they sent a canine after


him."
After being arrested, Miers
allegedly told authorities he
ran because he had a sus-
pended driver license and a
littering charge.
Authorities also found a
crack pipe in a green bag
he was carrying, the sheriff's
report stated.
As it turned out, Miers is
wanted in New Jersey on art
escape charge.
Miers was charged with
two counts of aggravated
assault on a law enforce-
ment officer, fleeing to elude
a law enforcement officer at
high speed, obstructing or
opposing an officer without
violence, possession of drug
paraphernalia, reckless dri-
ving, damage to a person or
property, leaving the scene of
an accident without giving
information and having no
valid driver license. '
It -is unknown if there
were any -injuries or how
much damage was done to
the cars during the chase.

Harris still determined to stay in race


S supporters of Democrat Bill Nelson must
be grinning today. Most believe his
chances of holding his Senate seat in
Washington are stronger than ever.
Without any effort on Nelson's part, it ap-
pears the campaign of his key Republican
challenger Rep. Katherine Harris is im-
ploding.
Fox News reports that her former staffers
claim "Harris is prone to tantrums, wants to
be treated like a princess, micromanages, fix-
ates on minutia while ignoring the big pic-
ture and sometimes does exactly opposite of
what advisers tell her with bad results that
they have to clean up later."
But one must ask, are people just smear-


ing her name? Is it really just part of the effort
to undermine or destroy the Harris cam-
paign? Is it part of the strategy designed by
her opponents to force her to quit the race?
Florida's Republican leaders, including
Gov. Jeb Bush, earlier questioned her ability
to win in November. Bush urged other Re-
publicans to run against Harris in the prima-
ry.
Apparently her campaign funds also have
been dwindling. 'So she decided to tap her
inheritance to pay for her Senate effort.
Members of her party have said that fol-
lowing her father's death, Harris has become
even more difficult to deal with.
Last week six more Harris campaign staff


members resigned. It's not the first time she
has had staff leave her.
Last spring several nationally known play-
ers walked on her, including Ed Rollins, the
man who ran Ronald Reagan's campaign.
Yet some pundits predict Harris still could
come out on top in the Sept. 5 Florida prima-
ry. She is in a four-way race to become the
GOP nominee.
Harris faces Will McBride, an Orlando
lawyer; Tampa's LeRoy Collins Jr., the son of a
former governor; and Peter Monroe, a devel-
oper who has held a fairly high federal posi-
tion in the past.
McBride is said to have plenty of money, a
Latino political base and a strong connection


with conservative Christians.
While many nasty rumors swirl, it would-
n't surprise us to learn Harris has been set up
to fail, either by Democrats or even by certain
members of her own party.
Political campaigns can bring out the
worst in people when the stakes are high.
Harris also has long been a target of Dem-
ocrats who still believe Al Gore should have
been elected president.
Harris was Florida's secretary of state
when the Democrats challenged the 2000
Florida election results.
For those who consider politics to be an
exciting spectator sport, the 2006 GOP cam-
paign is becoming a memorable event.


Seven objections t
-' I -S /I ^----- -^I e ^- i \ Ot 12f10 ir* OPAA


to six stories


ED MARTIN
STMNT


City council is facing a
decision on how much height
and massing to allow for the
proposed project by Michael
Miller on the property be-
tween East Tampa and East
Venice avenues and the In-
tracoastal Waterway.
That decision will shape
the look of the city perma-
nently and, like the nearby
towers, cannot be undone
when there are second
thoughts.
Here are some reasons I
think council should approve
only a four-story plan:
1. John Nolen's original
vision of Venice included a
four-story building as its max-
imum height. It is Nolen's
vision that has made Venice
the charming model city it is
today. The variations from
Nolen's plan for example,
the tall buildings along the
Esplanade and in the down-
town area make the city
mediocre in appearance.
They could be a part of the
landscape in any city and are
clearly not the ingredients of
a model city, aesthetically.
2. The city's Envision
Venice comprehensive plan-
ning process has, deservedly,
won plaudits from outside
reviewers. The primary mes-
sage from the public in that
process was to preserve the
small-town feel ofVenice, and
its scale. Most important, the
city planners have said the
current plan, now being
revised, focused too much on
quantity and not enough on
qualitative factors. The plan
being developed is to correct
that.
Here is a perfect opportu-
nity to approve moderate
growth rather than excessive
growth, and preserve the
quality of life in the city to
practice what we preach, -so
to speak.
3. Several proposed devel-
opments have limited them-
selves to three or four stories
in keeping with the perceived
wishes of the citizens and city
council. One of these is on
Nokomis Avenue, another is
proposed for Barcelona and
Granada.
In each of these situations
the city's preference was clear
and the developers complied
or agreed to comply in the
future. Approving a six-story,
or five-story project will send
developers a different mes-
sage.


4. Just because a developer
proposes a plan, which is
clearly his or her right, city
staff and council is under no
obligation to accept it. Yet it
seems sometimes that our
system operates on that
assumption, perhaps uncon-
sciously. Instead, the project
must be proven to be an asset
to the community and be
compatible with- the city's
overall plan.
City planners and city
council have been expressing
an interest in restraining
heights, approving a height
overlay district and consider-
ing another that may be
headed toward four stories,
including parking.
Still other height overlay
districts along Business 41
may be considered. Approv-
ing this six-story building in
the midst of downtown is
accepting a completely differ-
ent direction and sets a nega-
tive precedent, if not legally,
certainly as an arguable point
for future developments.
5. The proposal is massive-
ly out of scale with existing
zoning codes. With 288 units
on about 2.8 acres, it is about
100 units per acre. The cur-
rent zoning limit for hotels is
36 units per acre.
The project could be
reduced to three stories over
one story of parking, allow up
to 144 units and still be more
generous than the current
maximum zoning, so it is not
a draconian solution. Former
judge Don O'Connell has crit-
icized the Miller proposal as
"spot zoning."
6. Condo/hotels that is,
hotel-type units sold on a
condominium basis range
in size from less than 100
units to major high-story
-buildings with hundreds of
units.
In smaller cities, such as
Naples and Sarasota, con-
do/hotels of approximately
100 units can be found and
are charming additions to the
community. Venice might not
be able to support a 288- unit
condo/hotel and that would
provide incentive to sell the
units for longer-term occu-
pancy.
The advantages to the
city's merchants downtown
seem to be greater from ho-
tel-type occupancy. Exper-
ience in other cities suggests a
100-, or in this case perhaps
144-, unit project is economi-
cally viable.
7. It is not necessary to
have more than four floors to
"hide" or "soften" the 105-foot
towers. Four stories will pro-
vide a step-up to. the higher
buildings. Trees would also
help.
An example can be found
looking across the Centennial
Park and the former Kentucky
Military Institute buildings on
Tampa Avenue (only three

Florida could use a shot of clean water


Editor:
Our View's commendation of the Southwest Florida Water
Management District is all wet behind the ears.
Billions of our dollars have been spent in Florida to control
surface water and, by comparison, nothing on recharging our
aquifer, our largest source of freshwater.
Other states and countries have provided the research to
demonstrate that injecting surface runoff into the aquifer is
practical and, for some countries, a necessity. Other water
management districts can't get rid of their surface water.
Swiftmud faces lawsuits from numerous governniental
agencies if it continues to release Okeechobee water into the
Caloosahatchee and the St. Lucie canal.
At the heart of the problem is our Florida Department of
Environment Protection's refusal to allow any rainwater runoff,
which does not meet drinking water standards, to be injected
into an aquifer. Spend my money to change this flawed think-
ing (not on blaming phosphate mining for all our water woes).
The Peace River is a perfect example of how water that does not
meet drinking water standards enters our aquifer (injected if
you will) naturally through sink holes.
A thousand injection wells rated at 500 gallons per minute
could put almost 3/4ths of a billion gallons into our aquifer
daily during the rainy season.
Scientists at FDEP need to think of our Florida's shallow
aquifer of freshwater as one big ASR system. In my opinion,
Swiftmud has been a dismal failure.

Two more years
at the trough

Editor:
This man (Bush) will bring
more harm to our country, all
for his benefit.
Some disapprove of my
letters in the Gondolier Sun-
your turn will come when it's
too late to recognize what this
man can do..Our boys don't
know what it is to celebrate a
holiday. Our plans are going
to hell. His family will be
taken care of. He should be
up front with our boys in Iraq.
Pretending to show interest.
Yes. They all work hard for
themselves.
There is a lot going on that


we are not apprised of. He has
two years left to really run our
country into the ground. He'll
retire with his salary and live
free while we have people
who are suffering from all the
changes he makes. He lives
off the money from our trea-
sury. Soon he'll take Social
Security from us and put us
all in poverty.
Go to it, Bush you've got
two more years to live off of all
of us.
You will never get my vote.
No Bush will ever get my sup-
port. What good have you
done for anyone but yourself?
Fly free, eat free, vacation free
- the worst is to come, wait
and see.


I do not call him a leader of
our country; he is a destroyer.
Time will prove it.

Column was a
breath of fresh air
Editor: -
Thank you for printing Ed,,.
Martin's July 19th column. It
was a breath of fresh air -
beautifully written and, in a
world too full of negativism,
angry words and conflicts, it
brought a sense of peace,
nostalgia and tranquility.
As long as there are places
like Magog, there is hope for
the future.
Tonight I will fall asleep
thinking about the lake and
beautiful countryside.

Drilling will help
Florida's economy
Editor:'
One more thought about
your opposition to drilling in
the gulf and for that matter,
ANWAR.
I was torpedo and assistant
gunnery officer on the de-
stroyer USS Buchanan, DD
484, and it was our honor to
take Gen. MacArthur to the
Missouri for formal surrender
of the Japanese.
We stayed some 30 days in
Tokyo, which we visited often,
always with a .45 on our hip.
At the time Japan had no
oil at all. I will never forget the
little truck with a charcoal
burner in the back to power it.
It was so pathetic one almost
but not quite had sym-


pathy for those people.
We may be seeing just the
beginning of high-priced oil.
You are very much mistaken if
you think Florida's economy
won't be devastated.
What I ca t understand
is the nm#-et of your breed,
willing o take us back to
chaLcoal trucks before you
would allow drilling in the
gulf. Crazy!

Help for the powerless
Editor:
The homes in our area lost
electrical power in the middle
of the second set of the
Wimbledon men's singles
final. Needless to say, after
watching the championship
for the past two weeks, we
were totally frazzled.
We called Bogey's Sports
Pub, hoping it wouldn't be
affected by the blackout and
that we could see the match
there. After explaining the sit-
uation to Mark Costanzo, vice
president and managing
partner, he explained the
restaurant didn't open until
noon, but he invited us to
watch the rest of the match at
Bogey's outdoor dining area.
When we arrived, the HDTV
was on and we were able to
see the second set tie-breaker
and the remainder of the
wonderful match between
Roger Federer and Raffa
Nadal.
We thank Mark and his
staff, particularly Kim, for
their hospitality.

More attention for Nokomis and Laurel


What about us? A good article from Shannon Staub. I agree
on what makes us love living here, but I would invite Shannon
to reread her article and find anything about Nokomis or
Laurel. Seems she lists North Port, Englewood, Jacaranda,
Woodmere. I do think it's time all the taxpayers here in
Nokomis and Laurel get some attention. We are located just
north of Venice and do all our shopping in Venice. How about
that? Please list that too.


One year. This lady here
from Englewood, she's bust-
ing the Democrats about
term limits criticize, criti-
cize, criticize because Bush
is screwing up so bad. This is a
Republican gal, I assume.
She's going to keep going with
Bush, Bush, Bush she can't
see with her eyes, she can't
hear with her ears what he's
done and what his brother's
been doing. They're screwing'
this country up so bad, it's
going to be so pitiful and take
five different presidents after
him to try to straighten this
country out, if we do, unless


China takes us over. Term lim-
its for city council two-year
term limits, just two of them,
that will be plenty. They all
brag about what they're going
to do if we vote for them, so
let them go the first year. If
they can't do what they want
to do or what they're suppose
to do the first year, get them
out of there. The first year,
they get thrown out, period.
There's no second year on
that deal,
And Miller six or seven
stories and all, three stories
here. Quit changing the
zones. Leave it to three sto-


ries, plenty. We don't need the
big buildings.
Family. I read a letter to the
editor recently that said the
gays want so much more than
he can get, such as, he can't
visit a person in the hospital
on their death bed because
they're not family, so why
should they? But that's what
they want. They want to be
considered family so they can
be with their loved ones in the
hospital or anywhere else.
They want the rights that a
normal married couple gets.
That's all. They don't want any
more than anyone else. I can't
believe the prejudice of peo-
ple. It's ridiculous.
Good job. I want to give a
big thank-you to the Sertoma
Club for the fantastic display
of fireworks and a thank-you
to law enforcement who
helped us exit the area much
more quickly this year.

behind the KMI are "soft-
ened" if noticed. Similarly, the
trees on West Venice Avenue
shield the six-story condo on
the north side of the street so
that it is seldom noticed.
If the Miller lot is not taken
up completely by buildings,
council can require planting
of live oaks and other larger
trees to soften the view. It will
take some years, but will
work.

The Miller plan a

some development along the

for the city.. That should not
be lost in the questions about
height.
Reservations are not about

Legislature needs to ban all fireworks


BY BOB BOWDEN
GUEST COLUMN


Anarchy.
I know of no better word to
describe the out-of-control,
illegal firestorm of fireworks
that erupted in virtually every
neighborhood on the Fourth
of July.
Can anyone remember
any year that was worse? I
can't. With each successive
year lately, the illegal blasts
become more numerous, the
dangers greater.
Years ago, Floridians had
to travel to Georgia to buy
firecrackers; then Florida
legalized their use for "agri-
cultural purposes." Now, any-
one can sign a paper saying
that's how they'll use the
super colossal, high-flying
triple aerial eruption, and it's
theirs for a price.
Obviously, quite a few peo-
ple lied about their purpose
recently and purchased what
the Florida Legislature
intended to make illegal.
For Debby Owens, rockets
became a weapon used to
assault her property, she says.
And there was a casualty,
named Zissy.


Zissy, a 24-year-old
Arabian horse, was terrified
by rockets soaring across her
pasture, Owens said, when a
still-burning rocket landed on
her back, setting her on fire.
Seeking to flee the pain and
horror, Zissy ran through a
fence, further injuring herself.
From inside her mobile
home, Owens saw her dogs
shake with fear, saw her 16-
year companion horse on fire.
She called the sheriff's
office.
"I was hysterical," Owens
said. "I told them it's raining
fire out here."
A deputy responded and
she said he told her he'd been
instructed not to stop fire-
works, since they had been
purchased legally.
"It was Baghdad out here,"
Owens said. "Every part of my
property is covered with
spent fireworks."
Everywhere in this area,
"celebrations" began as soon
as tents selling fireworks
sprang up. Night after night,
the pops, whistles and booms
continued as children tried to
sleep and frightened dogs
needed a last walk but would-
n't venture outside.


Now, let's not pretend that
these fireworks are for shoo-
ing birds. Real farmers use a
kind of small cannon as a
noisemaker to send birds to
flight. Real farmers don't buy
expensive aerial fireworks.
The bottom line is that the
Florida Legislature consid-
ered fireworks dangerous
enough to ban but passed
legislation with a loophole
that results in massive disre-
gard for their law each year.
What's next, tents that sell
machine guns that buyers
swear will only be used to kill
field mice in citrus groves?
It's time to stop this mad-
ness and return to communi-
ty celebrations of the Fourth.
The present fireworks law
has become a joke that peo-
ple like Owens don't find
funny. The Legislature needs
to replace this flawed law with
an outright ban on the public
sale of fireworks. No loop-
holes. No exceptions.
No one needs personal
explosive devices for personal
entertainment.

Facts and misconceptions about the area code scam


BY KEVIN KLEINLEIN
CRIME SCENE

I was contacted recently by
Police Officer John Parisi of
the North Port Police De-
partment regarding this con-
fidence game. There have
been numerous frauds perpe-
trated in our region lately and
he believes the public should
be made aware of how it
works. The security unit of
AT&T supplied me with the
following intelligence to be
used by the public as a crime
prevention tool.
Placing international calls
without realizing it
It's not always easy to tell if
you're dialing an internation-
al telephone number. In most
cases, you have to dial "011"
to begin a call to a foreign
country. But there are loca-
tions outside the United
States whose telephone num-
bers may look like domestic
long-distance calls, but are
actually international calls
where international rates
apply. For example, 809, 284
and 876 are area codes in the
Caribbean.
There are many scams that
deceive consumers into call-
ing international numbers.
You may see an ad for a ser-
vice that directs you to call a
specific number, or you may
receive a page, an e-mail mes-
sage or an "urgent" message
on your answering machine.
All messages direct you to call
a number for more informa-
tion almost always an in-
ternational number.
Be cautious about area
codes you don't recognize.
Check your telephone direc-
tory or call the operator to
determine where the area

code is, before making your
call.
Control access to your tele-
phone so unauthorized call-
ers do not use your phone to
call these services. A block on
calls to "900" services will not
stop calls to "011" or "809"
numbers. If you're sure you
won't need to make interna-
tional calls, call your long-dis-
tance carrier and ask them to
put an international block on
your telephone line.
About the 809 area code
'Urban Legend'
Fraudsters have been dis-
tributing bogus e-mails
through the Internet that are
purported to come from
AT&T. The topic: a phone
scam involving the 809 area
code. The scam itself is real,
however, the e-mail and'
warning contain erroneous
information. AT&T would like
to set the record straight and
separate fact from fiction.
The 809 area-code scam
first surfaced five years ago
and continues to victimize
consumers on occasion. And
there have been far more
inquiries about it than con-
sumers actually being victim-
ized.
How the scam works
In most cases a message is

left onjn answering machine
or pager requesting the recip-
ient call a number immedi-
ately for one of several rea-
sons: The most common
involves calling for informa-
tion about a relative who has
died, been arrested or
injured. When consumers fall
prey and call the number, the
scam artist attempts to keep
the caller on the line for as
long as possible to increase
the caller's long distance call-
ing charges. The bogus e-mail
claims the 809 area code
sends calls to the British
Virgin Islands, when in fact
809 is the country code for the
Dominican Republic. The e-
mail also warns consumers
that dialing the 809 area code
will result in charges of $2,400
per minute. That simply isn't
true. The basic rate for a call
to the Dominican Republic is
less than $4 a minute
although some 809 numbers .
terminate with pay-per-call
services that permit the levy
of additional fees.
-Since numbers located off-
shore are not subject to U.S.
laws, there are no legal
requirements that consumers
be informed in advance of the
extra charge.
And last, the e-mail pur-
ports to originate within
AT&T's corporate offices and


includes the name and partial
telephone number of an
imaginary employee.
Again, to avoid falling prey
to the scam, AT&T recom-
mends consumers know
where they're calling before
they dial. When consumers
receive such a message from
someone they don't know
they should simply disregard
it.
Consumers should also be
mindful that it is usually nec-
essary to dial 011 to reach an
international location.
However, there are some
locations outside the United
States, such as the Caribbean
and Canada, where tele-
phone numbers resemble
domestic long-distance calls,
but carry a higher interna-
tional rate.
If a consumer isn't familiar
with a certain area code, they
can visit consumer.att.com to
look up any area code or
country code in the world.
Protect yourself from
becoming a victim by heed-
ing the warnings of commu-
nication providers and law
enforcement.
If you receive a message
from an area code or individ-
ual you do not recognize it is
best not to return that call
unless you take the time to
check it out.

SPORTS EDITOR


Little

League

is over

Whew! Little League is
over! Well, at least for Venice
All-Star teams, anyway.
While none of the Venice,
Little League teams made it
to the state tournament, we
can be proud that three were
district champions.
The National 9-10s and
11-12s were tops in District
16 along with the 13-14 year-
old Juniors. -
And now, families have a
couple of days to squeeze in
a vacation before school
sports start.
High school football prac-
tice begins Monday. Volley-
ball and golf tryouts are
Monday.

We have a few ideas on
quick getaways before the
start of school:
SEBASTIAN INLET It's
only about 3 1/2 hours away
across the state. The fishing
is fantastic. You can catch a
wide variety of sea creatures.
The Atlantic runs a little
cooler than the Gulf, which
is good news this time of
year. The waves are bigger
for surfing, etc.

PINE ISLAND A little
haven tucked between the
peninsula and Sanibel Island.
St. James City is to the south
and Bokeelia to the north.
There are a string of great
seafood restaurants in Mat-
lacha and the main drag on
the island is dotted with
quaint watering holes a
lot of them on the water.
Another great fishing spot.

TAMPA SKYWAY PIERS -
You can drive right up to the
spot where you fish. Once
there, you drop your lines
into deep' water. The fish
going to and from Tampa
Bay are plentiful and some
very large. Bridge gaffes are
recommended. Nearby, there
is a great park and beach
the whole family can enjoy.
It's called Fort DeSoto Park.
There are two piers and
several bridges to fish from.
The beaches and lagoons
offer plenty of sun, clear
water and white sand.

ST. GEORGE ISLAND -
This place takes about seven
hours to get to. Once you're
there, you know the trip
was worthwhile. Uncrowded
sugar sand beaches. Pristine
water. Seafood restaurant
heaven. We found a restau-
rant with $2 a dozen oysters.
Big, plump and juicy straight
from nearby Apalachicola
Bay. For a refreshing change,
the Apalachicola National
Forest is not far away. Lush
greenery. Big trees. Truly get-
ting away from the hustle
and bustle.

OCALA NATIONAL FOR-
EST Just a bit north of
Orlando area, this big park is
home to a number of cool,
clear running springs. Wild-
life viewing is excellent.
Heading east, there are
dozens of springs to near
Cedar Key. Snorkeling is
super. With the air 95 de-
grees, the water is a con-
stant 72. Manatee Spring
runs to the breathtaking
Suwanee River with leaping
sturgeon and snapping
alligators.


STAFF REPORT


Venice High football held
its end of the summer lifting
picnic last week at the North
Jetty.
The event was to reward
the players for sticking with
the program.
Close to 40 players received
T-shirts for being Iron Men.
The Iron Men received spec-
ial T-shirts for.not missing or
being late for any of the team
workouts.
The food was provided by


the Pigs N Paradise barbeque
team of Greg Hitt and Donny
Jordan. It was sponsored by
the Hitt Team Allstate Agency,
who donated 85 pounds of
pork that was served.
They were assisted by
Pastor Matt Day and Youth
Pastor Rodney Ring of the
Island Community Church.
Also the team heard from
former players and current
Allstate licensed producers
T.J. Hitt and Sal Mineo. Both
played on the 2000 State
Championship team and

Sorry Ricky, CFL


is superior to NFL


JOHNNY DONDERO
OUTSIDE THE BOX


Gee ... I guess Ricky
Williams is all washed up. He
doesn't appear to be "doing
didley" with the CFL's Toronto
Argonauts.
The Boatmen, another
nickname for the Argonauts,
were at the bottom half of the
CFL East standings after the
first four games of the Argo-
nauts' 18-game regular CFL
season schedule.
Ricky's averaging only
about 4 yards per carry.
But hold on there. Wasn't
Ricky sorely missed by the
Dolphins two years ago
when their season failed
miserably without him and
then revived themselves last
year upon his return?
Alleged bad habit and all,
Ricky Williams has to be
counted as one of the best
backs in football.
I suggest, that instead of
being washed up, that Ricky,
at this juncture, does not
have all the moves in his
arsenal that a Canadian
Football League running
back needs to be effective.
Nor is his well-condi-
tioned athlete's body geared
up for the level of endurance
that the CFL forces on its
players because of its 20-sec-
ond play clock, its 65-yard
wide playing field, its 55 yard
line, its 20-yard long end
zones, and -its no fourth
down rule.
The CFL is desperation


football at its finest.
The game is, indeed, play-
ed differently, and yes, with
more intensity, in Canada.
One has to be speedier
and quicker, to bob and
weave his way out of trouble.
With the 12 player side,
there is one more player
coming at you. The offensive
and defensive sets are more
complex than their 11-player
side NFL cousins. With the
12-player side, the game be-
comes more complicated.
And with the 20-second
play clock, on the average,
there are more plays per
game than in the NFL.
No fair catches on punts
only adds to the excitement.
Simply put, the CFL ver-
sion of football has a higher
degree of difficulty than the
NFL version.
Now, Ricky has a broken
arm and will be on the dis-
abled list for quite a while.
Whether he wants to admit it
or not, I'm sure he is finding
out that it is one thing to be
NFL-ready and quite another
thing to be CFL-ready. *
Realize that not much will
be said, if anything, about
what I've just mentioned, for
the media will whitewash the
whble thing in anticipation
of Ricky's NFL return.
Worst'yet, if this article is
read with any kind of interest,
there will most likely be
vehement denial.
As for us football fans in
Florida, we don't for the most
part catch any CFL action,
and consequently don't know
what we're missing.
It's too bad we don't have
a CFL team of our own to
root for.
I realize that it's outside
the box to feel this way, but
inside the lines, we will have
more exciting and entertain-
ing professional football
games to watch in the CFL.


Volleyball tryouts


Venice High volleyball

Monday, July 31, at the

H ih a lla s r ( .l- '' '-' qualityv




very' year, millions of people undergo some form of general
surgery, from appendectomies to gall bladder removal. But even
"routine" surgery carries risks, so it's important to evaluate the
hospital you're considering for your procedure carefully, before the opera-
tion takes place. HealthGrades". the nation's leading independent health-
care ratings company,. does exactly that each y'ear-and this year, deter-
mined that Venice Regional Medical Center (VRlIC) ranks among the top
10 percent of hospitals nationwide for clinical excellence in general surgery.
In fact, \VRMC received HealthGrades' 2006 General Surgery Excel-
lence Award"', which was based on an independent evaluation of data from
more than 3- million Medicare patients discharged at more than 5,000
hospitals around the country. To receive the award, hospitals had to rank
in the lowest 10 percent for risk-adjusted mortality and complication rates
related to three of the most common general surgery procedures. The
data is risk-adjusted-based on factors like the average age of patients-to
ensure that hospitals serving different populations are on equal footing.
VRMIC also received five-star ratings in rwo specific surgical procedures:
bowel obstruction and appendectomy. The rating is bestowed on hospitals
with belowv-average mortality and complication rates for particular proce-
dures. Those with rates that are "as expected" receive three stars.
"We have highly experienced surgeons on staff, state-of-the-art surgery-
suites, and rigid safety procedures in place," said \VRM C's CEO, Melody'
Trimble. "Clearly, this has resulted in a surgery program with excellent out-
comes and a focus on patient safety. \We salute the surgeons and employees
who have helped make VRAIC one of the top surgery programs in the
region and the country."
HealthGrades Vice President of Medical Affairs
Samantha Collier emphasized, "The data ana-
lyzed is objective, based on information
that hospitals themselves report to the
federal government under the Medi-
care program, so there is no way to .:. .. -. .
reach the top 10 percent other than'
having the lowest mortality and com- .
plication rates in the country." .'
For the 2006 HealthGrades ratings,
data from the years 2002 through 2004 -'
was utilized-the most current information "
available. The data is licensed from
the federal government's Centers '
for Medicare and Medicaid'
Services (CNMIS) and other .


private and public sources.

ratings and those of

MAKE A WORLD OF
DIFFERENCE: SIGN UP
AS A HEALTHCARE
VOLUNTEER OF VENICE!

Ralph \Valdo Emerson once said,
"You can never do a kindness too soon,
for you never know how soon it will be
coo late." His quote illustrates the fact
that volunteering is not something to
be delayed until one has plenty of spare
time. That's why Gene Burke. director
of volunteer services at Venice Regional
Nledical Center iVRMICl is encouraging
local residents ,q, stop putting off volun-
teering and sign up np v7i'th Healthcare
Volunteers of Venice, thk, orgo.izajion
that coordinates and staffs spluntiLers sa
the hospital and at Venice. Health4ajk.
"We have volunteers from teenag-
ers to seniors w\ho represent every walk
of life," says Burke. "Many of them lead
incredibly busy and productive lives. \ ith
other commitments including full-time
jobs. schooL and families. However. they
make volunteering a priority and find
at least some time to give of themselves.
because theyv'e discovered that making
a difference in the life of someone else
enriches their own."
_According to Burke, theie are many
different volunteer opportunities avail-
able. An integral part of the VRAIC
team, hospital volunteers provide direct
assistance to patients while they are in
the hospital, staff information desks and
support family mefnbers in surgery and
critical care. They also raise thousands of
dollars for the hospital and community
each year through independent initiatives
including the Elephant's Trunk Thrift
Shop, the hospital's coffee kiosk and its
gift shop. As if that were not. ,ugh,
they also operate and staff, iteline. a
personal emergency reppnse service [or
home-bound and lderly residents.
"\Xe'reab busy organization with many
different functions 'on multiple levels.'
she said. "If you tell us your strengths,
chances are we'll be able to place you in a
position that matches your interests and
abilities."
Healthcare Volunteers of Venice cur-
rently has more than 600 volunteers, but
it must constantly- recruit new ones as
\VRMC grows to meet the needs of the
community.
Burke says most people would be
shocked at how much 'olunteering is
actually worth in dollars and cents. In
2005, volunteers contributed more than
130.000 volunteer hours.
"Our volunteers know they' are doing
something good. but they may not realize
that they are making an economic con-
tribution that benefits the entire com-
S muniry," she explains. "In addition, to
their time, their fundraising has provided
more than $6 million to the hospital
since it opened."

Roland Marcotte, lower right, said he
found the center ring of his three-ring
circus mural the easiest to paint. The left
circle features a circus performer who
resembles the late legendary circus star
Gunther Gebel-Williams of Venice, an acro-
bat flipping upside down while holding a
hoop for a trained dog and a leopard. The
center ring design features two giraffes, a
trained seal and a juggler standing on a
wire. The right part of the design features
an aerialist on a trapeze, a trained bear and
a female acrobat standing on the shoulders
of a male bareback rider.


'no' for an answer


STORY AND PHOTOS BY KIM COOL FEATURES EDITOR

Library supervisor Roland Marcotte worked after hours for
nearly three months to paint a circus-themed mural in the
new children's room of the Venice Public Library.


The new wall art in the children's
reading room of the Venice Public
Library was an inside job.
Created by Library Supervisor
Roland Marcotte, the mural fea-
tures a circus theme, chosen by
retired head librarian Mary
Waddell, for whom the room is
named.
"I was just doing it for Mary," he
said of the three-ring circus mural,
which adorns the room's south
wall.
The reading room is used for
story hours and other youth-cen-
tered events at the library, which is
on South Nokomis Avenue.
Marcotte has worked with
Waddell on the search for an artist.
When they received a bid of
$25,000 from a firm in Orlando,
they brought their search back to
Venice in the hope of finding some-
one to paint it for a price more in
keeping with the library's budget.
Unbeknown to Waddell,
Marcotte was an artist. He also
happened to be an artist who had
done murals, including his most
recent project, a mural that covered
all four walls of his son Brian's
room. While telling Waddell about
painting techniques such as color
blending, Marcotte invited her to
see Brian's room. His intention was
to use an actual mural to help illus-
trate the points he was making
about painting techniques. His
muse may have had another idea.
"OK, Roland, you have to do this
room," she said to him the minute
she saw Brian's room.,
"I sure didn't want to do it," he
said. "We were getting desperate.
The room was nearing comple-
tion."
They went back to the Orlando
firm and asked what could be done
for $5,000. When there was no
response, Marcotte agreed to do
the job. The Friends of the Venice
Public Library paid him for his sup-
plies and gave him a stipend of
$500, saving the library thousands
of dollars in the process.
"I did it at night," he said. "I got
to know the cleaners pretty well."


By Feb. 24, when Waddell
retired, he had completed one of
the circular designs. The children's
room was dedicated a week earlier.
He finished the entire mural by
May.
"The middle seemed to be the
easiest," he said.
Each of the murals has human
and animal circus performers.
Marcotte used photos of gymnasts
as models for the acrobats and
aerialists painted in the mural.
"I had to sit down a whole day at
home and learn anatomy all over,"
Marcotte said.
He also worked with a computer
program called Poser to design the
faces on each of the performers in
the mural.
An upside-down aerialist proved
the most challenging because it
had to be painted upside down.
"I couldn't just turn the canvas
around," he said.
Instead he painted the mural
directly on the wall the textured
wall.
A textured wall was selected for
the room. While it added visual
interest, it proved challenging to
the artist who had to make sure
there was paint in all the nooks and
crannies.
"It is kind of cartoonish," he said
of the completed work. "I still tried
to get it right."
And when it was right and time
to pack away his tools and paints, it
seemed as though the muse
showed up again.
"It was tough to put them away,
because I have the talent," he said.
Marcotte's talent surfaced when
he was a child reading comic books
in Miami, where he was born and
raised.
He would spend hours trying to
copy the characters he saw in those
books.
"I never took it too seriously,"
Marcotte said. "I won a few prizes."
During his 12 years in Catholic
school he took one or two art class-
es, drew a lot on his own but never
planned a career in art. Hitting the
mute button again and again to


keep the art muse at /
bay, he went on to
Florida State
University, took
some art classes,
but came away
with a bachelor
degree in sociol-
ogy.
"I was just
afraid I couldn't
make a good liv-
ing," he said. "It was
the starving-artist
syndrome."
Instead he earned a
master degree in economics
from Florida Atlantic University
in Boca Raton, took a job in city
planning and eventually, while sit-
ting in the back row at church, met
his wife, Alicia. They were both 39.
Brian was born four years later.
"The art would come out some-
times," he said.."'It as hard to
make it go away."
The couple moved first to South
Carolina and then, in 1998, to
Venice, because of her job as an
occupational therapist. He earned
his master degree in library science
while commuting to Tampa after
moving to Venice, and getting a job
with the library.
With master degrees in econom-
ics and library science, Marcotte
has been hitting the mute button
on his artistic muse for most of his
life.
Only occasionally would he take
the time to answer the call to paint
a mural for a minister's home in
Hollywood, Fla.. copy some
abstract paintings for his friend
Eddy, paint a 23-foot long mural, a
few more paintings, Brian's mural
and each time, put away his paints
and brushes. At the library,
Marcotte keeps his artistic muse at
bay by working with the computer
programs Photoshop and
Illustrator to design posters.
The paints are packed away
"until Eddy from Miami sends me
another scrap of paper..."
Or Marcotte's muse refuses to be
muted any longer.

Local resident is an all-American guy


entering his last year as an
advertising major this fall. In
high school, he was a theater
student, but says that he
wants a stable field that
allows some creativity.
Theatre, in his opinion, is not
a stable field.
'Advertising is a little bit of
both," Sayeg said, in reference
to the mix of creativity and
stability.
While he's not away at
school, he's busy as a camp
counselor.
He started his job as a


counselor about six years ago
due to his own fond memo-
ries as a camper.
"I love kids," said Sayeg,
who is now 21. 'And I'm still a
big kid. If I wasn't majoring in
advertising I'd definitely be
doing something with kids."
In addition to working at
the day camp, Sayeg has
worked the PALs program at
the Venice Little Theatre in
the past and volunteered at
the day camp before he
became a counselor.
The campers love Sayeg.


To celebrate his citizenship,
the Woodmere Day Camp
threw an American-themed
party.
Each camper received a
quilt square on which they
could draw whatever they
chose to congratulate Sayeg.
Cynthia Burnley, program
coordinator for Woodmere
Park, will take the quilt home
and sew it together to provide
as a memory quilt for Sayeg.
"We're so proud of him for
finally doing this," Burnley
said.

BY KELEIGH KNABEL
GONDOLIER SUN INTERN

After a complicated trip
down the citizenship road,
Ilyas Sayeg, a counselor at
Woodmere Day Camp, finally
reached his destination.
Sayeg' became a U.S. citi-
zen on July 10.
"I wanted to be able to vote
and make my voice heard,"
he said.
Due to change of address
problems since Sayeg is a stu-
'dent at Florida State
'University, his paperwork


kept getting sent to the wrong
office. This delayed the
process.
"I started the process at the
same time as my mom and
dad," Sayeg said, "but they
became citizens about two or
three months ago."
Sayeg was born in Turkey
and moved to Venice when he
was 7 years old. His family
'moved due to the religious
oppression they faced.
Most of Turkey is Muslim.
Sayeg's sister was once
denied medical care because
their family isn't Muslim.


Sayeg assures me he does
not discriminate against reli-
gions, but the unequal oppor-
tunity they encountered in
Turkey stirred them to move
to the United States.
They've lived, here since
1991 with their green cards,
which enable them to do
everything short of voting
and holding a federal job.
Sayeg wanted to vote, and
becoming a citizen was the
way to do it.
American experiences
Sayeg, an honor student, is

The Laurel Civic As-

gram is designed to get to
youth before they get into
trouble. It is dedicated to pro-
moting policies and pro-
grams that help youth suc-
ceed by not becoming teen
parents or school dropouts,
rather to become lifelong
learners, leaders, community
role models, productive
workers, and self-sufficient
citizens.
This one-of-a-kind sum-
mer training workshop for
ages 12-16 allows them to
understand parenting before
it happens, explore career

* Academic remediation and
literacy skills
* Civic engagement through
working along side Habitat
for Humanity
* Access to the arts, including
music, theater, photography
and painting/Sketching

computers and the Internet
*Work readiness training
* Banking and credit training
* Job-seeking skills
* Life skills training
* Etiquette training daily:
business, telephone, office,
social, theater and formal
dining etiquette
* Motivational enhancement
* Personal empowerment
* Cardio-vascular, nutrition


and health training with six
USF medical interns via Gulf
Coast South Area Health
Education Center
* Career exploration
* Leadership and teamwork
training
* Work experience: Par-
ticipants design and run their
own real-time company
weekly, providing actual cus-
tomer service and be graded
on how well they do each
week.

week sports camp on site
* Hands-on business experi-
ence: What makes a business
successful
* Tours of facilities such as the
health department, Sarasota
Memorial Hospital, Johnson
Medical Chiropractic Service,

and more.
TEP successfully provides
youth with tasks that are rele-
vant, challenging and inter-
esting, using creative strate-
gies to meet the needs of each
individual.
John Jefferson is program
coordinator for the Teen
Empowerment Program. To

Growing old with Dave


DAVE BARRY
HUMOR i,'&`1 1
L

This classic Dave Barr col-
umn was originally pub-
lished Sept. 3, 1995.

Call me a wild and crazy
guy if you want, but recently,
on a whim, I decided to -
why not? turn 48.
It's not so bad. Physically,
the only serious problem I've
noticed is that I can no longer
read anything printed in let-
ters smaller than Shaquille
O'Neal.
Also, to read a document, I
have to hold it far from my
face; more and more, I find
myself holding documents -
this is awkward on airplanes
- with my feet. I can no
longer read restaurant
menus, so I fake it when the
waiter comes around.
ME (pointing randomly):
I'll have this.
WAITER: You'll have your
napkin?
-ME: I want that medium
rare.
It's gotten so bad that I
can't even read the words I'm
typing into my computer
right now.
If my fingers were in a
prankish mood, they could
type an embarrassing mes-
sage right in the middle of this
sentence HE'S ALWAYS
PUTTING US IN HIS NOSE
and there is no way I'd be able


to tell.
I suppose I should go see
an eye doctor, but if you're 48,
whenever you go to see any
kind of doctor, he or she
invariably decides to insert a
lengthy medical item into
your body until the far end of
it reaches a different area
code.
Also, I am frankly fearful
that the eye doctor will want
me to wear reading glasses. I
have a psychological hang-up
about this, caused by the fact
that, growing up, I wore eye-
glasses for 70,000 years.
And these were not just
any eyeglasses: These were
the El Dork-O model, the
ones that come from the fac-
tory pre-broken with the
white tape already wrapped
around the nose part. As an
adolescent, I was convinced
that my glasses were one of
the key reasons why the
opposition sex did not find
me attractive, the other key
reason being that I did not
reach puberty until approxi-
mately 35.
Anyway, other than being
functionally blind at close
range, I remain in superb
physical condition for a man
of my age who can no longer
fit into any of his pants. I have
definitely been gaining some
weight in the midriff region,
despite a rigorous diet regi-
men of drinking absolutely
no beer whatsoever after I
pass out.
The only lower-body gar-
ments I own that still fit me
comfortably are towels,
which I find myself wearing
in more and more social set-
tings. I'm thinking of getting a
black one for funerals.
Because of my midriff situ-
ation I was very pleased to
read recently about the new
Miracle Breakthrough Weight


Loss Plan For Mice. In case
you missed this, what hap-
pened was, scientists extract-
ed a certain chemical ingredi-
ent found in thin mice, then
injected it into fat mice; the
fat mice lost 90 percent more
weight. than a control group
of fat mice who were exposed
only to Richard'Simmons.
The good news is that this
same ingredient could pro-
duce dramatic weight loss in
human beings; the bad news
is that, before it becomes
available, it nmust be approved
by the Food and Drug Ad-
ministration (motto: "We
Haven't Even Approved Our
Motto Yet"). So it's going to
take a while.
If you're overweight and
desperate to try this miracle
ingredient right away, my
advice, as a medical profes-
sional, is to get hold of a thin
mouse and eat it. It can't be
any worse than tofu.
But getting back to aging:
Aside from the vision thing,
and the weight thing, and the
need to take an afternoon
nap almost immediately after
I wake up, and the fact that
random hairs I'm talking
about long hairs, the kind
normally associated with
Cher occasionally erupt
from deep inside my ears -
aside from these minor prob-
lems, I am a superb physical
specimen easily mistaken for
Brad Pitt.
Not only that, but I have
the mind of a steel trap. Of
course, very few things in the
world and I include the
Home Shopping Network in
this statement are as stu-
pid as a steel trap. What I'm
saying is, I have definitely
detected a declifle in some of
my mental facilities.,
For example, the other day
I was in my office, trying to


perform a fundamental jour-
nalistic function, namely, fill
out an expense report, and I
needed to divide 3 into a
number that, if I recall cor-
rectly (which I don't; that's the
problem) was $125.85, and I
couldn't remember how to do
long division.
I knew I was supposed to
put the 3 into the 12, then
bring something down, but
what? And how far down?
And would I need the
"cosine"?
I was starting to panic,
when all of a sudden this is
why you youngsters should
pay attention in math class -
my old training came back to
me, and I knew exactly what
to do: Ask Doris. Doris works
in my office, and she has a
calculator. I guess I should
start carrying one around,
along with some kind of
device that remembers (a)
people's names,, (b) where I
put the remote control and
(c) what I had planned to do
once I got into the kitchen
other than stand around
wearing a vacant expression
normally associated with fish.
But so what if my memory
isn't what it used to be? My
other mental skills are as
sharp as ever, and I'm confi-
dent that I can continue to do
the kind of astute analysis
and in-depth research that
have characterized this col-
umn over the years, which is
why today I want to assure
you, the readers, that my
advancing age will in no way
change the fact that MAINLY

Off to Boston


In summer, Floridians return to the Key


Well, her I am about to fly
to Boston. Don't worry I'll be
back. For me it is a trip home.
You see, I was born in Boston
and raised on Beacon Hill.
You may know that Boston is
the hub of the universe but
not know that Beacon Hill is
the hub of Boston. Because I
was born in Boston there are
several distinctive things
about me.
1. I pronounce the letter R
as if it were Arrrhhhhhhhh!
2. If word ends with an "a"
I make an Arrrhhhhhhhhh! I
once said "Motha Tereser of
Calcuttera lives in Indier."
Only when it when it was
pointed out to me did I realize
- the listener was not very
bright. (By the by, while in
graduate school in Rome I
and (Blessed) Mother Teresa
became good friends.)
3. When I was a child there
were several things I was
taught before I could walk.
Uncle Jack was the greatest
man alive. (The president to
outsiders.) Other people lived
in make-shift states or coun-
tries. We lived in the
Commonwealth. The most
important thing is life, and
yes I still really believe it, is to
be well-breed.
Back to Uncle Jack. Well,
sort of. My Aunt Elizabeth has
a home at Hyannisport, Cape
Cod, and we spent summers

with her there. One day I was
riding my bike and met a girl
my age. We became friends.
Her name was Caroline
Kennedy. Just the next day I
found myself at John-John's
(Yes, we called him that)
birthday party. His mother,
whose name I forget, said I
had charming manners.
When I told my mother this
she was so happy she bought
me a pony. (I later asked that
it be traded in for the com-
plete works of Charles
Dickens which I still have.)
So I will be going to Boston
where, unlike here, people
will understand me when I
talk. Mind you the poeple
here talk just fine. Too bad
they only talk about the
weather. Now that wouldn't
be so bad as the weather, and
correct me if someone has
put a fake sun over where I
live, is always the same. Of
course, we have the summer
rains now. It pours. It's great! I
go outside and dance in the
rain causing cars to stop and
people to take pictures. Oh,
the rain is great. Actually, I
prefer anything to the sun.
(Pagan sun worshipers must
have been nuts-- dry roast-
ed, of course.
So I'm off to Boston. I'll let
you know all about it when I
get back. I'll be taping several
TV show about my latest book
(which isn't even out yet)
"How I Ended up a Monk and
Why." (Randon House.) And
I'll be sure to send you all a
post card and have Parker
House Rolls at the Parker
House Hotel (Mr. Dickens
stayed there), and tea in you
honor.'

er Bostonian, can be reached

Shirley Johnson plays with her son, Tommy, 5, at Angler's
Resort on Manasota Key. The Johnsons have been coming to
Englewood from Plant City for five years for their summer
vacation.


BY RITA JUHASZ
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Guess who's out on Mana-
sota Key this summer: Sharon
Stone and Howard Johnson.
Well,, not the ones of movie
and motel fame, but distin-
guished people nonetheless.
In fact, the key is populat-
ed in the heat of the summer
with many Floridians taking
advantage of close-to-home
tourism on gulf beaches.
The Johnsons Howard
and Shirley have returned
to the Angler's Resort on the
key for five years from Plant
City, in the heart of Florida,
where they run a strawberry
farm.
"We just love coming here.
We're able to dock our boat
right here at the resort and
then walk five minutes to the
beach. It's the best of both
worlds," Shirley Johnson said
this week while sitting inside
the fenced pool while her 5-
year old son, Tommy, frol-
icked in the water.
"And I think this is one of
.the nicest pools on the island,
surrounded by trees and
shade," she added.
The Johnsons heard about
the resort from friends who
return here year after year.
The teenage Johnson sisters,


Kasey and Kellie, were out
fishing with their dad this
week and relaxing indoors
respectively, taking advantage
of the variety of vacation,
activities.
Shirley shared their yearly
farming schedule prepar-
ing, planting and harvesting
strawberries in Plant City,
the Strawberry Capital of the
World.
The annual celebration of
all things strawberry takes
place around the end of
February. The berry crop is
exhausted in April, then a
cover crop is planted, and
school lets out.
Then the Johnsons head
for Manasota Key for vaca-
tion.
Generations
That's just what Brett and
Sharon Stone, did 22 years ago
when they bought the Beach
Croft Motel at 2230 North
Beach Road on the key.
Sharon saw the potential of
running eight cozy units, all
equipped with kitchens and
able to sleep from two to five
guests.
"We have generations of
families returning every year
- the majority of our clients
are repeat customers. One
time a woman came here

SUN PHOTOS BY RITA JUHASZ
Weston's Resort is the largest resort on Manasota Key..It has
been in the Weston family for more than 40 years.


with an old tablecloth and
asked to have a photo taken
with her and her husband,
because her grandparents
have a photo at the exact
same table in the courtyard."
What stands out in this lit-
tle nest of cottages adjacent to
the Englewood Beach parking
area is her magnificent New
Jersey green thumb. She
bought a small vine that
ended up arching its way
around a 12-foot-high frame
built by one of her regular vis-
itors, creating a "secret gar-
den" atmosphere, complete
with palms, flowers and ferns.
Stone has received some
discouraging calls from some
of those repeat visitors, how-
ever, with news that Engle-
wood Beach was "destroyed""
during Tropical Storm Al-
berto,, which may have
derailed possible visitors.
"We've had the best surf
fishing in three years," she
exclaimed. "They're even say-
ing we have red tide on
Manasota Key I've had
about nine regulars call to see
what's going on."
It may not really matter


what erroneous reports are
stating, though, which is evi-
dent from the many Florida
license plates seen on the
island.
Located at the south end of
the key is the grande dame of
vacation spots, Weston's
Resort, a family-owned busi-
ness for more than 46 years.
Joseph and Helen Weston
moved from Ohio and
opened the popular resort.
"Mother was the business-
woman and ran the place,
and my father took people
out fishing," said Deborah
Weston, their only daughter.
Weston said the resort's 83
units were almost all occu-
pied. Their prime locale
allows them to boast a "gulf-
to-bay" experience, with
docks on one side and the
beach on the other.
S"I've had fifth generations
of some families return," she
said. "They were here as little
kids and now they are back
with their families.
"Our resort is a good
barometer of how things are
going in general along the
beach."

"9 A Working beyond the
standard eight-hour workday may
raise risk of incurring a work-related
injury,.regardless of what type of work
you do. That is the findings of a 13-year study
of over 10,000 U.S. employees who work
overtime or on regularly extended shifts. The
most common complaints involved joint and
muscle problems. Employees who normally
worked long shifts were 37 percent more likely
to sustain an injury than their peers who worked
shorter hours. Those who worked overtime were
61 percent greater risk than employees whose jobs
included no overtime. Stress may be primary
causative factor. Whatever the cause, if you work
long hours, it may help to consult with a
chiropractor before injury occurs.
We believe in preventative health care. Chiropractic
iis a health care discipline that emphasizes the
inherent recuperative power of the body to heal
itself without the use of drugs of surgery. At
TWIN PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH
CENTER, we maintain that the body has built-in
capacity to restore health within certain limits, and
base our care on this principle. We're located at
1214-C Venice Ave. East, where the conditions we
address are as varied and as vast as the nervous
system itself. Please call 941.412.3800 to schedule
an appointment and let us help you feel better. We
offer massage therapy and have 2 licensed
massage therapists on staff.
P.S. If possible, take short breaks at work to break

After Katrina
As part of its continuing
commitment to preserve
New Orleans, past for a
brighter future, The Historic
New Orleans Collection is
proud to announce the open-
ing of a new exhibition. City
of Hope: New Orleans after
Hurricane Katrina opened on
Tuesday, July 18, at the
Williams Gallery, 533 Royal St.
The exhibition, on display
through Saturday, Nov. 4, is
free and open to the public,
Tuesday-Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-
4:30 p.m.
Historic photographs,
prints, maps and books on dis-
play in the exhibition trace
New Orleans, perseverance
through 300 years of periodic
flooding and natural disasters,
while contemporary pho-
tographs, oral histories, video
footage and ephemera explore
Hurricane Katrina's impact and
the city's will to survive and
rebuild against all odds.
City of Hope showcases a
range of artifacts, objects and
interactive presentations.
Audio stations playing excer-
pts of oral histories from fire-
men, policemen and Coast
Guard personnel relate the
experiences of first respon-
ders who helped save lives
and property in the storm's
aftermath.
Local broadcast news cov-
erage from cities to which
storm victims fled traces the
scattering of the people and
culture of New Orleans.
Photographs portray the ter-


Maloney's


rible destruction of property
and provide a comprehensive
survey of the post-Katrina
landscape.
Also on display are sam-
ples of FEMA notices, Meals
Ready to Eat (MREs), plastic
advertising signs that were so
prevalent on neutral grounds
and plywood bearing the
search and rescue notations.
A computer terminal will
allow visitors to explore a
variety of Hurricane Katrina
Web sites, current tropical
weather reports and mapping
tools.
Throughout the course of
the exhibition, there will be daily
screenings of two documentary
filmhn projects by New Orleans
native Walter Williams. New
Orleans: The Natural History
(2002) describes the geography
of New Orleans and looks at the
diminishing wetlands and
the city's vulnerability to
hurricanes. Rebuilding New
Orleans, a film in the mak-
ing, features interviews with
residents returning to the
city to undertake the
rebuilding of their lives,
careers and property.
The Historic New Orleans
Collection will present an
array of special program-
ming in conjunction with
City of Hope, including a
series of presentations in
the fall by area artists who
have created works in
response to Hurricane
Katrina.

bling at

KMI building

Merchants at the KMI
building, also known as the
Venice Centre Mall, on Tampa
Avenue in downtown Venice
want everyone to know they
have bling.
To help promote these ef-
forts Auntie's Attic owner Lee
Ball coordinates second Fri-
day of the month fashion
shows. Mall merchants pro-
vide clothes and delicious
snacks. Is there a better way to
spend a leisurely Friday after-
noon than eating and shop-
ping?
"I have to start shopping
here," several browsers said as
they looked at the beautiful
clothing. Cara Herman mod-
eled vintage clothing from
Auntie's Attic and shoppers
filled the store after the show
wanting to try on $4 shirts and
shorts.
Many women sought Jew-
elry and cotton clothing from
The Beauty Studio and June's
Island Emporium. Babe Hart
showed off hand-painted
washable silks available at
LaCasa.
Adding to the fun of the
afternoon was Melinda Judy
also known as Lindy who sang
great songs like "Hey Good
Looking" to liven the atmos-
phere.
You might want to spend
Aug. 11 enjoying lunch at Le
Petit Jardin Cafe at the Venice
Centre Mall and then staying
for the fashion show that
begins at 1 p.m. Merchants
plan prizes and special sales
for the event.
A touch of glass
Call the Venice Art Center at
485-7136 to make reservations
to hear glass artist extra-
ordinere, Terry Brawley give a
gallery talk tomorrow. Terry
has a studio in Venice where
he gives classes and does cus-
tom stained glass orders. His
work is on display in the glass
show that runs at the art cen-
ter through Aug. 18.
Next week, Liana Martin,
owner of Firebug Designs, is
the featured speaker. Gallery
talks begin at 10 a.m. Since
seating is limited, the center
asks you call to reserve,
That's corny
One of the great things
about Venice in the summer is
the time for leisure and laugh-
ter. At the Saturday morning
farmer's market I watched Dee
Bennett and Teresa Davis
picking corn from the basket.
Dee told me she is from
Nebraska, so she knows good
corn. It turned out Teresa is
originally from Akron, Ohio.
When I snapped the photo
and told the women their pic-
ture would be in the Gondolier
Sun, Teresa started laughing
and aid, "How corny."
The farmer's market is open
each Saturday morning from 8
to 10 a.m.
When you make a purchase
from Sweet Bread By Grand-
ma you get a free cut of coffee.
Mary Anderson and John
Cream feature a different spe-
cial each week.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Lee Ball, owner of
Auntie's Attic in the Venice
Center Mall. This nice lady has
truly taken the bull by the
horns to give the mall a pres-
ence in Venice. Lee Ball is one
of the merchants that helps
make Venice great.


Enjoying a lazy summer afternoon Mabel Smith and Fran Baxter snack on some
cheese and crackers and watch the models at the fashion show.


Melinda Judy, also known as "Lindy," entertains guests at the fashion show at
the KMI building in Venice.


Lee Ball, one of the owners of
Auntie's Attic, describes the
clothes worn at the fashion
show sponsored by mer-
chants at the KMI building in
Venice.


Babe Hart looks elegant in the washable dyed
silk ensemble from LaCasa in the KMI build-
ing.


Cara Herman shows off some of the vintage
clothing from Auntie's Attic.


Debbie Marshall likes the
bling shown on her skirt and
the jewelry she models from
June's Island Emporium in the
KMI building.


Stunning clothes from The Beauty Studio in the KMI building look great on
models Jamille Umana and Gabriella Carrizo.


Glass artist Terry Brawley shows his work at the Venice Art Center. The glass
show runs at the center until Aug 18.


Grandma May
Anderson and
her friend, John
Cream, sell deli-
cious bakery
items each
Saturday at the
downtown
farmer's market.,


Dee Bennett and Teresa Davis pick out a few ears of corn at the Saturday
farmer's market in downtown Venice.
