Health care providers dispute allegations over charges


A national Internet site rates local hospital
charges "outrageous," but most local facilities'
charges are actually about average in Florida.


BY RICK BARRY
PELICAN PRESS

A national Internet site -
HospitalVictims.com lists
virtually every U.S. hospital
and details their charges for
goods and services. Its sum-
maries note the hospitals in
Sarasota and Manatee coun-
ties bill patients "outrageous"
markups for charges over
their actual costs in compar-
ison with The Johns Hopkins
Hospital in Baltimore.
Bradenton's Blake Medi-
cal Center's markups are
reported at 467 percent over
costs, while Doctors Hos-


pital of Sarasota marks up
its charges 449 percent.
Sarasota Memorial's mark-
up is 349 percent; Bon
Secours Venice Hospital
marks its charges up 311
percent over costs.
(Bon Secours Venice Hos-
pital has been known as
Venice Regional Medical
Center since its acquisition
last year by Health Manage-
ment Associates; VRMC is
not listed on HospitalVictims.
com.)
An organization called
The Fairness Foundation
operates the Internet site
and says it chooses The


Johns Hopkins Hospital for
comparison "because it is
one of the finest hospitals in
America."
Johns Hopkins marks its
charges up just 124 percent
over costs. "If they don't over-
charge," the site asks, "why
should your hospital over-
charge?"
Former Sarasota County
Commissioner Jack O'Neil is
among. local residents dis-
covering the site and asking
the same question. O'Neil
and a close friend have on-
going disputes with Sarasota
Memorial's billing depart-
ment, although both are
generous in their praise of
the medical care they receive.
"But those figures are
ridiculous," O'Neil said, "and
our friends agree. They
should be ashamed."


Apples and oranges
A look behind the num-
bers reveals another story.
In the first place, Johns
Hopkins which for more
than a decade has indeed
been ranked as the country's
best hospital by the U.S.
News and World Report,
among many other rating
guides is in Maryland,
which strictly regulates
charges for all of its hospitals.
Johns Hopkins spokes-
man Gary Stephenson said
comparing any out-of-state
hospital to a Maryland facil-
ity "is fallacious at best."
Sarasota Memorial's di-
rector of revenue cycle
management, Diane Settle,
agreed.
"They control health care
prices in Maryland like public
utilities," she said. "It's com-


pletely apples and oranges."
Sarasota Memorial CEO
Gwen McKenzie said the
hospital's charges, even using
the Web site's figures -
whose data base source is
unidentified rank it with
. a group of hospitals with a
.29 to 1 cost-to-charge ratio
at 103rd to 112th among
Florida's 220 hospitals,
squarely in the middle. The
rankings note it is the sec-
ond-least-expensive hospital
in the area, after Bon Secours
Venice, at .32 to 1.
The Fairness Foundation
did not return repeated calls
for comment.
Sympathy
The comparisons cited at
HospitalVictims.com are bas-
ed on fees charged patients
who have neither Medicare


nor insurance coverage,
which specify or negotiate
far lower payments for care
they cover. The numbers
used apply only to "full-pay"
patients, who make up less
than 8 percent of Memorial's
patients, Settle said.
McKenzie said hospital
leaders are sympathetic to
the stated aims of the Fair-
ness Foundation, and "we
don't aim to balance the
books on the backs of those
who can least afford to pay."
As a result, the county
hospital has multiple char-
itable programs for low-
income patients, which are
designed much like manag-
ed care contracts.
"We serve most of the
patients who are uninsured

Woods: Talent to spare and to share


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER


Although Jim Woods has
been in the Venice area near-
ly five and a half years, and
has held high-profile posi-
tions with both Manatee
Community College and the
Bon Secours Venice Hospital
Foundation, many in the
community are just getting
acquainted with him because
of his new role as a Venice
City Council member.
Woods was appointed to
council in June to fill the
remaining five months of
the term of Fred Hammett.
Hammett had just been ap-
pointed mayor to' replace
Dean Calamaras, who relo-
cated to Georgia earlier in
the year.
"I was attracted to the
city council position," he
said, "due 'to the years I
spent in leadership and de-
cision-making roles during
my career as a. college ad-
ministrator. I just wanted to
find out what it's like to be
a council member."

9A OBITUARIES


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Attorneys for the Casey Key
Fish House will file an amend-
ment to a lawsuit submitted
in May and a new one in the
12th Judicial Circuit Court
that challenges the authority
of Sarasota County to shut
down the Osprey waterfront
restaurant.
At issue Is the right of
Jimmy Von Hubez to serve
his customers at the restau-
rant's outdoor tiki bar, and
entertain them with music
that some neighbors have
complained is too loud.
Robert Lincoln, whose law
firm represents Von Hubertz,
will charge that county reg-
ulations are "unnecessarily
restrictive." They are based
on a 36-year-old state statute
he described as "inflexible by
today's standards."
The statute created the
North Casey Key Conserva-
tion District, which limited
the right of commercial busi-
nesses to expand, to "preserve
the natural beauty, marine,
animal and bird life in the
district."
The state later abolished
the statute, but the county
adopted some of its provi-
sions, and incorporated them
into the county comprehen-
sive plan.
"When the statute was
enacted in 1970, there were
no provisions in place in


Sarasota County dealing with
density, environmental pro-
tection, minimum elevations
for homes or height limits,"
Lincoln said. "We question the
county's authority to apply
out-of-date rules for a busi-
ness that has operated since
1999 with county, and has
been hooked up to the coun-
ty sewer system, with per-
mission; since then."
That is the subject of the
second suit, which goes to
the court this week.
Puzzled
The amended suit will
charge that County Zoning
Administrator Mary Beth
Humphreys had no authority
to deny an operating permit
to the restaurant following a
fire in February 2004. It par-
tially destroyed a building
housing a kitchen, dining
room and bar. Damages of
$200,000 were estimated at
the time.
Von Hubertz contends that
he has lost an additional
$200,000 in the two-plus
years since the fire because
of his inability to fully serve
customers while the dispute
has continued.
Complaints by residents
of Casey Key and the South
Bay subdivision about music
performed evenings at the
tiki bar had heightened coun-
ty scrutiny of the permit issue.

Phone service disrupted again


STAFF REPORT

Verizon phone service in
South County was disrupted
again Friday, affecting service
to about 900 customers. The
outage came on the heels of
an outage Thursday that left
much of South County with-
out phone service, including
the Venice Police Department
Both incidents were blam-
ed on CPN Contractors of
Bradenton, which cut under-
ground phone cables and is
responsible for the repairs.
"This is third time that this
construction company has
struck the underground Ver-
izon line," said Verizon
spokesman Bob Elek.
He said that the fibers that
were cut on Thursday had
been repaired, but another


cable was then damaged af-
fecting customers in Venice
and North Port. Unlike the
problems that occurred on
Thursday, no 9-1-1 phone
lines were affected.
Repairs were delayed due
to lightning storms in the
area on Friday. Service was
returned slowly to customers
and at 3:50 p.m. all phones
were back online.
The person who answered
the phone at CPN Contract-
ors Friday afternoon said
that everyone has gone
home and to call again on
Monday.
Verizon customers are
reminded that if for any rea-
son they cannot get help by
dialing 9-1-1, to call the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
office at 861-5800 or 316-1201.

A Deland, Fla., youth has
the right idea.
Cory Workman was skip-
ping rocks into the St. John's
River last Sunday when an alli-
gator chomped down on his
left foot, dragging him into the
water.
Workman might have been
aware that three people have
been killed by Florida alliga-
tors this year. The 16-year-old
knew he had to do something
- fast. Then he remembered
a tip he learned from a
Discovery TV show.
He poked his thumb in the
eye of the alligator. And it
turned him loose!
The gator has been caught
and Workman wants to eat it.
"It tried to eat me," he said,
"so I'm going to eat it."

Change sought for 805-unit development


STAFF REPORT

The Venice Planning
Commission will continue its
work on updating the city's
comprehensive plan next
week, but its more immediate
task will be to consider a zon-
ing map amendment petition
for J & J Homes Inc. and
Laurel Lakes LLC.
The commission will meet
at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in coun-
cil chambers at City Hall, 401
W Venice Ave.
The petitioners are re-
questing a zoning map
amendment from City of
Venice Residential, Single-
Family (RSF-3) and Sarasota
County Open Use Rural
(OUR) zoning districts to a
Planned Unit Development
(PUD) zoning district.
The property is located on
the south side of Laurel Road,
east of Knights Trail Road and
west of the Myakka River. It
consists of about 161 vacant
acres annexed into the city in
separate parcels in 2001, 2002
and 2003. Its future land use
map designation is low-den-
sity residential.
According to the city staff
report, the zoning map
amendment would permit
consideration of a multi-fam-
fly development project with
a. mix of amenities and ser-
vices that could include a
restaurant, gym, multi-pur-
pose rooms, photo lab, con-
venience store, business cen-

Under city code the maxi-
mum residential density in a
PUD is 4.5 dwelling units per
acre, but that can be varied by
city council, on a recommen-
dation by the planning com-
mission, if an applicant
shows a higher density is
appropriate.
Here the total residential
density proposed is 805
dwelling units, or 4.99 dwelling
units per acre. The current zon-
ing has a height cap of 35 feet;
up to 95 feet could be permit-
ted in the PUD, but anything
more than 35 feet would
require a conditional use per-
mit from city council.
Construction would com-
ply with the city's Northern
Italian/Mediterranean style
of architecture.
Potable water for the prop-
erty would be provided by
Venice Utilities, with sewer
service from Sarasota County
as the subject property is
located within the Curry
Creek assessment area. The
property owner would be
required to construct and pay
the cost of extending and siz-
ing all off-site and on-site
water and sewer lines.
A walk-through by city staff
found no environmentally
sensitive habitat that would
support listed or protected
species. The site is not located

servation area and has no

protected wetlands.
City staff recommends
approval of the proposed
zoning map amendment with
three conditions:
1. To mitigate the impacts
on the city's insurance rating
system, the developer will off-
set the cost of the purchase of
new fire rescue apparatus for
service to buildings taller than
35 feet, through a proportional
cost-sharing agreement .
2. The major north-south
collector roadway will be
designed and constructed as
part of the first major phase
of site and development
plan/subdivision approval to
ensure access between Laurel
Road and Border Road upon
issuance of the certificate of
occupancy for the first resi-
dential dwelling unit.
3. The applicants will dedi-
cate necessary right of way
along Laurel Road and con-
struct the eastbound lanes of
Laurel Road along the devel-
opment from the western-
most property line to the
easternmost property line of
the site.
If the zoning map amend-
ment is approved by the plan-
ning commission, it will go to
city council for final action.
The work on the compre-
hensive plan update will con-
sist of a presentation on pub-

Fire Department's Station
15 serves Palmer Ranch
The Sarasota County Fire Department has opened
a temporary facility, Station #15, at Clark Road and
Pinkney Avenue to service the Palmer Ranch area.
The temporary station is in the fire department's
maintenance facility formerly known as Station
-# 20. The station is staffec iri, firefighters,
-- paramedics and EMTs 24-hours a day, seven days
a week.
"We are excited about the opening of Station 15,
which allows the Department to continue to reduce
response times to the Palmer Ranch area during
the construction of our new fire station in Palmer
Ranch," said Fire Chief Brian Gorski.
According to Gorski, the Sarasota County Fire
Department is operating out of the temporary site
until a new station is constructed. Construction
for the new facility is scheduled to begin in 2007.
The permanent facility will be on a one-acre site
in Palmer Ranch near Honore and Bloomfield
avenues.

Online Florida librarians
have all the answers
Busy professionals and students have discovered
the best way to find the information they seek is
to ask a Florida librarian online. The free service
allows the public to ask specific questions through
live chat or e-mail with a librarian in Florida,
including Sarasota County librarians. Trained
information professionals guide visitors to the
answers they need in minutes rather than wasting
hours navigating hundreds of unhelpful or irrelevant
Web sites.
"Ask a Librarian" operates 10 a.m.-10 p.m.
Sunday through Friday, and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on
Saturday. "This is a wonderful service we offer
our patrons," said Andrea Ginsky, Reference
Supervisor at the Selby Public Library in
Sarasota. "From students doing research for
class to professionals looking for data sources,
a professional Florida librarian is there to help
them." Access "Ask a Librarian" at sclibs.net, or
askalibrarian.org.
More than 90 libraries statewide collaborate to
provide this service to their patrons and the patrons
of other participating libraries. "Ask a Librarian"

'God's Love Flights' moving to Venice Airport


Agape Flights, an interdenominational Christian
ministry that supports missionaries by flying in
supplies, equipment and manpower, has a new
home after 25 years in Sarasota..


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER


After 25-years operating
out of the Sarasota-
Bradenton International
Airport, Agape Flights is
preparing to move its head-
quarters to the Venice
Municipal Airport in January.
On Saturday, July 22, staff
members and volunteers rep-
resenting 14 area churches
showed up at the new head-
quarters to participate in a
major cleanup of the whole
property.
"We have people working
outside on the landscaping
and mowing, doing roof
repairs and pressure washing
parts of the exterior," said
Executive Director Charlie
Gardner.
"Inside the building, oth-
ers are painting, doing car-
pentry and electrical work
and just sweeping the floors
to get the area set up for our
beginning to move in. This is
an incredible community
turnout today."
Venice Airport Manager
Fred Watts was also there,
lending a helping hand with
the cleanup work.
"I'm really enthusiastic
about this organization and
the work it does," he said.
'"Agape is a wonderful addi-
tion to the airport, and to the
community of Venice in gen-
eral, giving local residents a
chance to become personally
involved in a ministry that
really contributes to people in
need."
S'Actually, we feel the work
being done here, as impor-
tant as it is to us, is not as
important as the workers
themselves," Gardner said.
"Because of the emergency
nature of our work serving
the missionaries, we, have to
have more than just a casual
connection with our volun-
teers they must have a
strong commitment to
accomplish all we do."
"Our volunteers include
pilots, mechanics, building
maintenance people, mail
sorters, laborers and all kinds
of clerical folks," he said. "And
we always need more help. If
someone can't find a place to
work in our organization,
then they don't really want
one."
Open door
The new building, at 100
Airport Ave., west of the
Airport Administration Build-
ing, was formerly owned by
Commack Realty, and sub-
leased to Mooney Mart. When
it was offered for sale a couple
of years ago, a young Venice
pilot named Mark Mikarts
brought it to Gardner's atten-
tion.


"I had been praying for
years for Agape to move to
Venice," said Mikarts, who is
a full-time deputy with the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Department. "I've known
about their work for a long
time, and thought it would be
great to be one of their volun-
teer pilots. After I showed
Charlie (Gardner) the build-
ing,' I didn't hear anything for
awhile. Then one day I saw
they were moving in God
had opened the door and
enabled them to buy the
building, which is perfectly
suited to their needs. It just
shows that God really ans-
wers prayer."
What is'Agape'?
'Agape" (pronounced uh-
GAH-pay) is the Greek word
used in the New Testament to
describe God's unconditional
love for mankind. Literally,
then, Agape Flights can be
called "God's Love Flights."
"Practically speaking," said
Gardner, "it is an interdenom-
inational Christian ministry
dedicated to the sharing of
the hope of Jesus Christ, and
committed to serving the
needs of missionaries in the
western hemisphere and
beyond, all to the glory of
God."
"Not only do we deliver
critical supplies, equipment
and manpower to mission
stations," he said, "we also
deliver mail back and forth,
help missionaries get con-
nected with stateside individ-
uals and groups who want to
help them further, organize
short-term mission teams for
special projects, and sponsor
activities to foster fellowship
and cooperation among mis-
sionaries on the field.
"We try to do everything
we can to support and
encourage these dedicated
missionaries and their fami-
lies."
'At the current time, we
have over 1,700 people, from
47 states and several foreign
countries, who support our
ministry financially," Gardner

GETACQUAINTED
In an effort to introduce its
ministry and operations to
more local residents and visi-
tors, Agape Flights is sponsor-
ing three special luncheon
tours of its Sarasota-
Bradenton International
Airport facilities in the coming
months. The "Wings of Love
Tours"are scheduled for Sept.
15, Oct. 20, and Dec. 8, each
. from noon to 1 p.m. To regis-
ter for one of the free tours,

said. "During our 2004-2005
fiscal year, they donated over
$1 million. I believe that
demonstrates not only the
scope of our activity, but also
the confidence our support-
ers have in its validity and
effectiveness."
Bigger digs
"For many years now," said
Gardner, "we have been
struggling with lease issues at
the Sarasota location, as well
as a need for more space. We
had totally outgrown the
Sarasota location, and the
building here in Venice offers
three times as much usable
space."
"What we have here is
3,500 square feet of office
space at the east end of the
building, plus 1,400 square
feet of additional space for
offices at the west end," he
said. "In between is 1,500
square feet of maintenance
workshop space, and 9,300
square feet of clear hangar
space. That does not include
all the concrete space around
the building for parking
planes, or the auto parking lot
and huge yard area out front."
"For those who have been
supporting us all these years,"
he said, "it is important to
note that our operation and
purpose are not changing one
bit. We will continue doing
the same thing, but we will be
able to do it on a much larger
scale."
No payroll
What started in 1980 as
just a dedicated married cou-
ple named Keith and Clara
Starkey, with a single small
airplane they flew back and
forth to Haiti periodically


with mail and supplies for
missionaries there, has grown
to a staff of eight full-time
people and some 160 local
volunteers.
Now the organization
serves missionaries in both
Haiti and the Dominican
Republic -on a regular basis,
making 110 deliveries each
year (about one every three
days), and making additional
emergency flights on demand
to other locations in Central
America and the Bahamas.
"Each of our paid staff is
also considered a mission-
ary," Gardner said. "We each
are responsible, with God's
help of course,' to raise our
own support from friends,
relatives and churches with
which we are connected. No
one is on the organization's
'payroll,' because our salaries
are paid by our own, personal
supporters."
"Therefore," he concluded,
"we can honestly say that all
the money people donate to
Agape Flights actually goes to
the work of the ministry. Not
every organization can say
that."
Although Gardner and his
wife, Stephanie, still live in
Bradenton, the pending relo-
cation of their office and
operation has them currently
shopping for a home in the
Venice area.
"We are really looking for-
ward not only to working
here," he said "but also to
being in Venice as residents,
and becoming part of this
wonderful community.
"We don't know the details
about what God may have in
store for us from day to day,
but we are certain, based on
our experience as his ser-


vants, that he will continue to
bless us and his work here."
Help wanted
"Between now and
January," Gardner said, "any-
one interested in getting
more information regarding
Agape Flights or in becom-
ing a volunteer, a financial
supporter, or a staff member
- may call our Sarasota
phone number at 355-5099."
"We have another work
day here at the Venice build-
ing on Saturday morning,
Aug. 5, between 9 a.m. and
noon," he said. "We welcome
anyone who would like to
help out."


The list of projects yet to be
completed includes painting,
drywall work, sanding cor-
roded metal fixtures, rewiring
electrical outlets, pressure
cleaning exterior walls and
awnings, washing windows,
mowing and weed-whacking,
and cleaning restrooms.
"We can involve anyone
with any of those skills for the
work day," said Gardner, "and
if they can bring their own
todls or equipment, all the
better. Staibucks donates cof-
fee, and Panera Bread
Company donates Danish
rolls, bagels and other food
items for'bur workers- to
enjoy -" -


.I 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
is 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

"That's really been over-
blown," Von Hubertz said.
"Other than some aggrieved
people worried that .OK'ing
my permit would lead to
Casey Key being overrun by
condominium developers,
the community response has
been very supportive.
"I'm puzzled by objections
from some Casey Key resi-
dents," he added. "Zoning
requirements limit housing
around here to single-family
homes of no more than two
stories. You can't find a house
built on the key in the past 12
months that doesn't violate
the height limit.
"And," he continued,
"across the street on Black-
burn Point Road from my


place is the Casey Key libra-
ry. That's not a single-family
home. Nor is the Scullers

One year later, he and
Karen moved to Costa Mesa,
Calif., where he taught phy-

all sports at a public junior
high school. During that time
he completed his master's

After a stint in Ohio to help

He left his teaching posi-

Team approach only way to solve water shortage


Stubbornness is the mood when it comes
to sharing water in Southwest Florida.
Charlotte County has been stubborn
about becoming an exclusive customer or
agreeing to let Peace River Manasota Re-
gional Water Authority members have water
from Punta Gorda's Shell Creek.
The water authority has been stubborn
about helping Charlotte County get funding
for its emergency interconnect with Punta
Gorda and other projects.
The Southwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District has been stubborn about giv-
ing back tax money collected in Charlotte
County to finance water projects there.
Lee and Sarasota counties have been
stubborn about exposing all their water
resources for use by other members.
It all boils down to a lack of trust and a
reluctance to let go of the liquid gold each


county wants to control.
If attitudes don't change, we are headed
for a water war that will resemble the con-
tentious and expensive battle fought in
Hillsborough County and Tampa in the
past.
It is understandable that every county -
along with their municipalities wants to
make sure its own customers are a priority
when it comes to how its water resources
are used. Imagine trying to explain a mor-
atorium on building or watering lawns
because you have to ship water to a neigh-
boring county. Or, that your water rates
will see a significant hike because there is
not enough water to go around.
Manatee County is at the center of the
debate. It collects a majority of its water
from Lake Manatee and, so far, has not asked
the water authority to augment its supply,


even though it was an original member. In
seven years or so, that will change.
But, while Manatee County plans to draw
water from the authority, and its neighbors,
it has been unwilling to allow Lake Mana-
tee to be tapped for water by the authority.
If that happens, it could mean an increase
in water rates for Manatee Countians, who
currently have some of the cheapest water
in Southwest Florida.
It is a dilemma for Manatee County
commissioners and its representative on
the water authority board.
Charlotte will not become an exclusive
customer or warm up to the idea of sharing
all its water unless Sarasota and Manatee
counties put all their resources in the pot.
That seems like a fair request on Charlotte's
part.
Sarasota has been cool to the idea but is


closer to agreeing to that idea than Manatee.
If the regional approach to water, preach-
ed by Swiftmud and the water authority, is
to work, all members must offer up their
Complete inventory of water resources for
everyone's benefit and the authority
should pay fair market value for that water
to ease the higher rates that would result.
If Manatee County cannot resolve its
reluctance to do that and we understand
its resistance then it should consider giv-
ing up its seat on the water authority board.
That may sound like uan extreme altern-
ative, but it is one that would remove a
huge roadblock to regionalism.
The authority and Swiftmud are de-
manding everyone buy into the regional
approach to sharing water. Their message is
plain play, or go home. It is a message that
should not be lost on Manatee County.

Manatee Community Col-
lege and Venice High School
are making huge changes to
their campuses. *
MCC is adding 300 park-
ing spaces, which shows how
popular the campus has be-
come. Even more important
is the change to the land-
scaping throughout the cam-
pus, giving it a much more
inviting atmosphere. The
final phase will put a walk
around the lake. There is a
study area in the trees and
much more.
Venice High has added
more than 100 trees that are
just beautiful. These aren't
the small variety but nice-
size trees.
There are some great
magnolias in front of the
media center, big oaks and
some crape myrtles. The
interior parking lots have all
been redone. There's lots of
new carpeting, they're redo-
ing the science labs and
have done a lot of painting.
One would assume the cam-
pus is going to be staying
there.

The state of Florida has a
pay plan for top performing
teachers and administrators.
The teachers apply for the
money by filling out a few
pages of questions about
their accomplishments. It in-
cludes their involvement in
school committees and union
management, and accom-
plishments of their students
as reflected in FCATs, etc.
I do not think union ac-
tivity is worth a reward.
The winners are the ones
who check off the most.
They then get a piece of the
pool of money that comes
from the state. The incredibly
stupid thing about this is a
teacher is only allowed to
apply every three years. I
assume this is so the wealth
can be spread around, not so
we can really recognize the
best of the best each year.

Charlotte County has a
committee to find a location
for the expansion of Florida
Gulf Coast University, which
is currently in Lee County.
Charlotte County is part
of its service area and it is
obviously getting aggressive
in its plans to serve the area.

A couple of ideas F insurance


A couple of ideas about insurance


Editor:
Our current state-run dwelling insurance program should
be turned over to the insurance companies selling property
and casualty business in Florida. The state would still pro-
vide underwriting guidelines to protect those people who
are underinsured or unable to obtain insurance.
The insurance companies would participate in the pool
based (percentage wise) on their annual earned property or
casualty premiums sold in the state of Florida. That way
those companies that sell auto-only coverage must still par-
ticipate in the pool. Too many companies have taken the
gravy (auto premiums) and said "no thanks" to helping solve
the dwelling insurance problem.
A second idea would be for the insurance pool to cover
wind only and all dwelling policies sold by insurance com-
panies would be sold X-wind (without wind coverage).
This should bring more companies back into the market-
place because their biggest concern has been wind losses.
More competition means lower rates!
The insurance companies would participate in the wind
pool under the same percentage guidelines that I previously
discussed. Either way we get the state out of the insurance
business, which should be positive for the state and its citi-


zens.

Going back West
to fix a mistake

Editor:
Free at last. The two-and-
a-half year nightmare is over.
We have closed on our
home in the garbage-strewn
city of North Port, and are
moving back to Colorado.
We are attempting to rectify
a terrible mistake.
Moving back to where the
air is pure, and doesn't smell
like garbage in a sauna;
where one can get cold,
quality water from the tap.
Gone are the red tide beach-
es, and public beaches that
resemble gorilla pens.
I live in a place where I

my car while waiting for a
part for repairs on my im-
maculately kept property. I
deal with this while the ad-
joining lots look like the city
dump strewn with house-
hold items of all sorts.
Not to mention the most
pathetic school system,
where sexual predators seem
to find employment.
The only thing left to re-
mind me of these days will
be Doo Wop Denny who
entertains there, wisely leav-
ing Venice, the heat, bugs

We're creating
burdens for our
grandchildren
Editor:
I've been thinking about
my two grandchildren, I have
a 6-year-old and a 9-year-old.
They are innocent little girls
without a care in the world.
I wonder what kind of
world they will inherit from
my generation. I'm a baby
boomer. We have so many
problems in the world: wars,
global warming and the
economy where the gap
between the rich and poor is
widening. We must work on
these problems, or they will
have a big mess to clean up.
When I was young and
idealistic we thought we had
the answers. The quest for
money and power got in. the
way of the solutions. I see in
many young people today
the same idealism I had, but
I also see a lot of anger to-
ward us old folks.
We must find solutions to
the environmental problems
and build a kinder and gen-
tler world for our grandkids,
or they will face an unbear-
able burden. Let's get back
to the core values of our
parents.
The world is going too
fast, and if we aren't careful


we'll crash it, and the next
generations will have to pick
up the pieces if there is
anything left.

A second language
is a useful tool
Editor:
Children in other coun-
tries often learn two or three
foreign languages by the time
they are out of elementary
school. This is a sad com-
mentary regarding our edu-
cation system.
The fact is that we have
adopted Spanish as a second
language in many states.
Why not pick on French,
Italian or German languages?
A recent letter writer's com-
ments smacks of prejudice
for our southern neighbors.
The answer is to require
Spanish-speaking people to
learn English. Our children
are already dumbed down
enough. Why deny them a
perfectly marketable skill
they will use later in their
work life or the ability to
communicate when travel-
ling abroad?
This is also another excel-
lent reason to homeschool
our children. Grammar skills
are learned primarily from a
child's parents. Participating
in homework assignments
are an amazing way to
gauge your child's gramma-
tical skills. Get involved.
As for extended recess,
make your children go out-
side any play instead of

the massive growth expected in

Not yours. This is in re-
gards to the shoreline issue.
If those living along the Gulf
Coast think that they have
the right to block entry up

through a walkway, they are
going to be in for a surprise.
It will not be taken only
locally, countywide or com-
munitywide, this is going to
the U.S. government. You
don't own it. So get ready.
Drop them. I was wonder-
ing why the government
doesn't do one easy, single
thing to boost the housing
market in Florida and the
rest of the country and dras-
tically drop interest rates.
They 'have that under con-
trol. They may not be able to
take care of the insurance
problems, but the industry
has fallen flat on its face.
People are waiting for the
interest rates to drop to buy
homes. Simple: drop the
rates of the mortgages, the
prime interest rate. This
would take care of the prob-
lem right there. We have the
hurricanes and the insurance
working against us, but the
government can do that one,
thing. If they dropped the
rates, people would start
buying houses again.
Watch it. I noticed in the
Gondolier dhat the city was
.talking about continuing it
restrictions on watering.
Maybe the city needs to
monitor itself a little bit bet-
ter. Sunday afternoon going
down Venice Avenue to watch
the sunset, it had been rain-
ing most of the afternoon, the
water was still standing in
the curbs yet the sprinkler
systems were going full blast.
When we came back from
the sunset, the sprinkler sys-
tems were still going full
blast. So maybe with all the
rain we are getting, we need
to turn those things off and
may help their well and
everybody else's well. Maybe
the city needs to take a look
at itself.

with our city council people

Florida Tax Watch puts


out some interesting stats.
For instance, the average
stay of a tourist who travels
here by car has decreased
over the years. In 1978 it was
about 15 days while this
year it is about five and a half
days. Those coming by air
stayed 10 days in '78 and now
stay about five. I assume
this does not include those
snowbirds who spend a day
longer than six months
here.
It also put out some inter-
esting info on roads. The
average traffic per lane on
principle arteries was 7,000
cars, about 34 percent above
national average.
Lane miles went up 6.8
percent in the 10 years from
1994 to 2004, about three
times the national average.
Florida is sixth in the nation
in lane miles and next to
Ohio had the largest growth
in 'traffic. Yet Florida ranks
ninth in daily traffic per lane.
The highest is New Jersey,
followed closely by the Dis-
trict of Columbia (which is
because there are too many
politicians).


Here are some more of the
papers that have poured into
the office from your vaca-
tions.
Greg Miller brought me
some papers from Las Vegas
with some great ad ideas.
Roland and Annette Cald-
well were in Sevier County,
Tenn., and got a very unusual
newspaper that is dubbed
"Sevier's Alternative News-
paper." This paper had an
incredible number of high-
quality columnists and few
ads. Not sure how that form-
ula works.
Fred Lugar, local CPA,
picked up some papers on
his travels after tax season.
Among them were the
Charlton County Herald
from Folkston, Ga., which
says it is the "Gateway to the
Okefenokee." This was very
much a hometown paper,
with Relay For Life being the
top story, along with the state
football chanps. He also got
the News-Gazette from Gray-
son County, Ky.

We must stand
with Israel
Editor:
On July 11 armed Hez-
bollah terrorists kidnapped
two Israeli soldiers and killed
seven other in a cross-border
raid.
Now, Israel is pursuing
the Hezbollah terrorist orga-
nization.
So, the current conflict in
Lebanon is not Israel's fault,
as the news media would
lead us to believe.
The blame lies with Hez-
bollah, Hamas, Iran and Syria.
Israel, in the big picture of it
all, is simply defending its
right to exist.
The great U.S. of A., as
Israel's ally, must take a
stand for Israel, politically,


diplomatically and, if neces-
sary, militarily, for the total
disarming, dismantling and
complete defeat of Hezbol-
lah.
Anything short of com-
plete victory for Israel only
portends future conflict.

died Friday, July 28, 2006. He
was 51.
He was born Nov. 17, 1954,
in Irvington, N.J., and moved
to Venice in 1993 from
Elizabeth, N.J. He graduated
from David Bearly High
School in Kenitworth, N.J.,

County jail earns reaccredidation


BYTOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

If there was an Oscar for
best county correctional facil-
ity, the Sarasota County Jail
would be a winner in the
reaccreditation category.
Sheriff William Balkwill
'said the jail has successfully
completed the final inspec-
tion required to obtain reac-
creditation by the Florida
Corrections Accreditation
Commission.
, Sgt...Julian, Day of the
Summer County Sheriff's Of-
flce, the assessment team
leader, put it this way.
"I have been an assessor
on 25 previous on-site
inspections," he said, "and
the Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office Jail inspection, result
was the best I have seen to
date."
But, that does not mean
the jail has received its reac-


creditation yet.
"The assessors will make
the recommendation to the
Florida Corrections Accred-
itation Commission," Sara-
sota County Sheriff's Lt.
Chuck Lesaltato said, "and
then it will be a few weeks
before the certificate is
issued."
The three-man assessor
team is from the FCAC, but it
is the committee as a whole
that must approve the reac-
creditation.
Slam dunk
The jail was found to be in
compliance with 100 percent
of the 243 accreditation stan-
dards..
The reaccreditation status
is good for three years. The jail
was first accredited in 2000.
The jail also was in compli-
ance with 100 percent of the
243 standards in 2000,
Lesaltato said.,


"Some other agencies also
have gotten 100 percent," he
said, "but it's unusual and
we're pretty proud of it."
The assessment team had
high praise for the jail opera-
tions, as well as the jail staff
for their outstanding profes-
sionalism, Lesaltato said.
In addition to making sure
the jail is in compliance with
the reaccreditation standards,
the assessors check to make
sure the sheriff's office is fol-
lowing through on its policies
and procedures, .
; The jail'has a capacity of
1,040 inmates. Its- current
,inmate population is 1,030
inmates.
The jail is staffed by 276
civilian employees and sworn
deputies.

3 Goldstars excel at YMCA Nationals

Stapans earns gold medal in uneven bars. .


STAFF REPORT

Three standout Venice
YMCA Goldstar gymnasts
made the trip to Hanover, Pa.,
late last month to compete in
the YMCA Nationals.
All three excelled in their
respective levels of competi-
tion.
The girl with the biggest
smile was 14-year-old Kelsey
Stapans, who won a gold
medal in the uneven bars in
Level 7.
"She has outstanding form
and solid skills," Goldstars
head coach Michelle Guy said'.
Stapans, who lives in
Englewood, also did well in
all-around competition. She
placed third with a fine score
of 36.825. A perfect score is 40.
Allison Duncan, a 14-year-
old out of Venice, was third on


the parallel bars at Level 7.
'Allison was up a level and
displaying new skills," said
Guy.
The third girl making the'
trip north was promising tal-
ent Caitlin Elsadek. She is an
11-year-old from Venice.
Elsadek competes at Level
8. She placed 33rd in All-
Around out of 125. athletes
competing.
"She was competing
against girls who are 15 and 16
years old," Guy said. "Caitlin
has an arsenal of skills. She's
working on competing. It will
come with experience."
Guy said she is putting in a
bid for the Southwest Florida
area to host the 2008 YMCA
Nationals. She said hosting
the Nationals will be a boon
for area revenue.

Pennsylvania. Coaches Dana Mason, far left, and Michelle Guy, far right, flank athletes Kelsey

Theriault.


It's no secret that there is a
high turnover rate when it
comes to instructors working
at the Venice FamilyYMCA.
One department that has
remained steadfast and true
through the years is gymnas-
tics, where director Michelle
Guy has been overseeing
growth and improvements
for the past decade.
Guy, an energetic and ded-
icated teacher, has seen a lot
of folks come and go through
the years at 701 Center Road.
"Let's see, the only people
who have been here longer
are the bus driver, mainte-
nance and Pat Ryan," laughed
Guy, who has been teaching
gymnastics a total of 24 years.
Guy realizes it takes a team


effort to make it all click. She
has two trusty full-time assis-
tants and more than 20 other
part-timers.
Her right-hand gal is
Whitney Carter, a Kentucky
native who has been at the
Venice Y for two and a half
years.
Guy's other assistant is
Dana Mason, a Venice High
graduate who grew up learn-
ing gymnastics at the Venice
Y.
Guy is a Dayton, Ohio,
native. She excelled in gym-
nastics at Northmont High
School but had to stop com-
peting because of an injury.
She went on to attend the
University of Southern.
California and then earned
her degree at Georgia State
College in Atlanta.
The three, along with all


the helpers, oversee a gym-
nastics department that han-
dles 650 kids during the
course of the year.
Those gymnasts who wish
to travel to meets compete
under the Goldstars moniker.
There are numerous YMCA
meets and AAU meets that
the Goldstars hit over the
course of the year.
Besides classes at the
Venice Y, Guy also directs
gymnastics on Tuesdays and
Friday at the Englewood Y
and has satellite branches at
several churches in the area.
"We take teaching proper
progressions very seriously,"
Guy said. "We follow the pro-
grams set forth by USA
Gymnastics."
USA Gymnastics is the
governing body for the sport
throughout the country.

WOODS from Page IA

"When she found out she had
a chance to start her career
at Venice High School, she
jumped at the opportunity.
"While I was slaving away
in Tallahassee, she got to
'relax' in a condo on the
beach in Venice. It was her
experience inVenice that real-
ly sealed our decision to even-
tually move to this area."
To return to the commun-
ity college scene, Woods took
a cut in pay to become the
facilities planning officer at
Hillsborough Community
College in Tampa. After sev-
eral promotions he became
the campus executive officer
atMCC.
"MCC needed publicity for
its new Venice campus," he
said, "so I had the privilege of
delivering that message to
everyone who would listen. I
like to think this helped con-
tribute to our success there.
"Among other achieve-
ments, we opened up the
new nursing program there,
expanded the computer pro-
gram greatly, and initiated
the partnership with the
University of South Florida
Sarasota/Bradenton,
which has really become a
major success."
Heart attack, plus
On Valentine's Day 2003 a
serious heart attack caused
Woods' life to change in
many ways.
"In June of that year, a car-
diologist was recommending
bypass surgery, to be per-
formed at Sarasota Memorial
Hospital," he recalled. "But
Kathy Turner from the Venice
-Hospital' asked if I would
consider using their new
Venice-Ocala Heart Surgery
Center, and let Drs. Car-
michael and Fong perform
the bypass.
"I really struggled with
that decision for awhile," he
said, "but I kept remember-
ing one thing Pr. Carmichael
said to me in our conversa-
tion: 'If you do choose us,
Jim, we are going to pray for
you and with you before we
dpi the surgery.' Fpr me that
tipped the scales in their favor
that's the kind of caring
relationship I want with any
doctor, but especially one
that's going to have my heart
and life in his hands.
"Shortly after the surgery,"
he said, "I was asked by Kathy
Turner to share my experi-
ence at the surgery center
with others in the communi-
ty. I began speaking at civic
clubs and at other meetings
where people wanted to learn
more about the procedure
and the facility.
"I guess I was pretty en-
thusiastic in my praise of the
center and my doctors," said
Woods. "After. a few of those
presentations, Hospital Ad-
ministrator Mike Guley ask-,
ed me if I would consider
applying for the presidency
of the Hospital Foundation.
"Though that idea was
completely new to me," he
said, "it came at just the right
time this was something
I knew I could do well, and
enjoy doing. So in March
2004, I accepted the hospital
board's offer and embarked
on raising funds for the Bon
Secours Venice Hospital
Foundation as its new presi-
dent."
"Ironically, three weeks
after they hired me, they told
me I had to stop fundraising
because the hospital was
about to be sold," he said.
'Retired'
"At that point," he said,
"the board of the new hos-
pital was considering the
creation of another hospital
foundation, and offered me
the job as president. But in
late 2004, my wife had to
have surgery. Unfortunately
there were some complica-


tions which ultimately result-
ed in stroke-like symptoms,
and Karen's losing some of
her mobility. She had been
such a wonderful partner to
me for all these years it
will be 43 years next month
- I decided I wanted to be
her primary caregiver in that
situation.
"Under those circum-
stances, however," he said,
"neither one of us were able to
continue in our job responsi-


abilities, so we both 'retired'
from active employment
around February of last
year."
Now that Woods has ac-
cepted the appointment as
a temporary city council
member, he has been amaz-
ed at the time each member
of council must put in to pre-
pare for meetings and keep
,up with their responsibil-
ities.
"We get an incredible
amount of material each
week which must be read
and digested before council
meetings, as well as the


meetings of any boards to
which we are assigned, so
we can be up-to-date on
everything which may be dis-
cussed. In addition to that,
there are several books on
the history of Venice, and
laws, ordinances and regula-
tions of the city with which
each of us must become
familiar."
Music man
Woods' professional ex-!
perience is only part of his!
story. Throughout his adult|
life, he has also been involv-'
ed in "barbershopping" -


yes, those musical groups
that sing without instru-
mental accompaniment.
"Back in the 1990s, while
we were living in Tallahas-
see," he said, "I actually di-
rected both men's and wom-
en's groups of the Tallahassee
Chapter of the Society for the
Preservation of Barbershop
Singing in America. Those
groups traveled all over the
state in both concerts and
competition they were a
pleasure to work with.
"I've also sung baritone
and bass in some good bar-
bershop male quartets," said


Woods. "One of them won
the state championship in
the 1999 Sunshine District
Competition."
"I really love this commu-
nity," said Woods, "and I am
looking for ways to give back
to it anything I might have to
offer. I have a lot to learn
about .the city's operations,
ordinances, rules and proce-
dures, etc., but at the same
time my background lends to
some understanding of the
various issues now facing the
city.

even for a short time," he

With only two more weeks until school starts, Irene Lynch, principal at Epiphany School, stood at the entrance of the construction zone at the school.



They are praying for miracle



at Evihanvy School


Story and photos by Susan Cairo* Staff Writer

Volunteers have stepped up to finish recent
renovations so that Epiphany School might
open on time.


Volunteers and tradesmen
have been working non-stop
since the last day of classes on
a $500,000 renovation of
Epiphany School in Venice.
Planned as carefully as any
final exam, the renovation is
taking on the character of a
pop quiz as the project nears
the finish line. School is
scheduled to open in lbss
than two weeks. Will they fin-
ish in time?
Everything on the second
floor has been replaced and a
major construction project
on the first floor is under way.
"We believe in miracles,"
Principal Irene Lynch said.
"The first day of school is Aug.
8, with the teachers coming
backAug. 1."
Additional problems were
uncovered after the project
began in June, Mike Hertel,
director of maintenance for
the school, church and
grounds said.
"Pipes were broken and
corroded," he said.
The plumbing problem
caused a delay in construc-
tion and added to the cost of
the project.
Lots of support
There is a sign outside of
the school thanking all of the
many businesses in the area
who donated time and sup-
plies to the school. Hertel said
that most of them have had
some contact with Epiphany.
They have had children who
attended or in the case of PGT
Windows, many of their em-
ployee's children attend the
school.


"I left at 9:45 last night and
Mike from Montgomery car-
pet was still here making sure
that the tile in the hallways,
were just right," Hertel said.
The Knights of Columbus of
Venice had 10 volunteers
painting the halls on the sec-
ond floor.
"They were all youngsters,"
Ed Mainak said. "None of
them was younger than 80."
Students also have volun-
teered their time this summer
and many will get credit in
the Bright Futures program.
Both of Hertel's sons were
busy working at Epiphany.
Seth Hill at Hill and Hill
plumbing helped with the fix-
tures for the new bathrooms.


Sherwin Williams discounted
the cost of paint as well as
West Coast Brick Pavers,
Courville Creative Concepts,
the architects and contractor
Mike Blem of General Em-
blem Construction. Lynch
said we could never have
even started without their
assistance.
List of renovations
Lynch said If all goes well
this will all be completed in
about two weeks.
Included in the renovation
will be a new front entrance, a
butterfly garden, hand-paint-
ed mural, and benches for the
students to sit on.
Hurricane protection has
been a big part of the school
renovation. All the windows
are now PGT hurricane-certi-
fied and the old windows
were removed.

Herbarium receives


prestigious grant


TRSHAR1 [ AN .tA1S t

Perhaps the red fox is one
of the most recognizable
members of the .canine fami-
ly. This particular canid lives
in a very widespread area,
including most of Florida,
except the extreme southern-
most part of our state.
The very first time I saw a
red fox in the wild, it was
"tip-toeing" along a low rock
wall in upstate New York. Its
trot reminded me of all those
foxes I'd seen in animated
cartoons when I was a kid. It
moved just like those "wily"
critters created by Disney.
Later, I found out that foxes
love to walk along rock
walls or fallen logs. You can
count on a red fox following
that type of easy path with
its distinctive tippy-toe walk.
I've been lucky enough to
photograph red foxes in
Canada, Montana, Minne-
sota, Utah ... well, lots of
places, though they don't
seem to be in California or
Arizona, plus some .other
spots in the West.
I've seen red foxes that
are almost black, black with
silver tipped fur, more brown
than red, but all red foxes
have a white tip on their
tails. No other foxes, no other
canids, have that white-
tipped tail. That prominent
tip is usually apparent at
birth.
That luxurious tail serves
an important purpose for
the fox. It wraps its tail over
its footpads and nose when
it lies down to rest, providing
protection from the weather.
On occasion, I've seen foxes
completely covered in snow.
The tail does its job well.
The red fox is an extreme-
ly cautious animal. It can
learn from experience, and
these two traits might have
combined to create this fox's
reputation for cunning. It's
hard to spot, too, because
it's shy. And it's a nervous
animal. Sometimes it has
seemed to me that red .fox
subjects never stop moving
- and that's especially true
of youngsters. They appear
to be perpetual motion
machines.
We often hear a phrase
about "the fox in the hen
house." Foxes did learn that
there was food to be found
in abundance in chicken
coops. But farmers have bet-
ter protected their chickens
(improved fencing, etc.), so
today that's not such a big
problem. Foxes are not pure
carnivores. While foxes do eat
smaller animals like mice,
squirrels, rabbits and wood-
chucks, they also eat a lot of
"veggies" in the summer,
when they're available. That
can include berries, apples,
cherries, grapes, corn and
some grasses. Foxes also
enjoy eating grasshoppers,
crickets, crayfish and beetles.
Foxes are sort of cat-like
in the way they stalk prey.
They get as close as pos-
sible, stealthily, then they
dash in quickly as the ani-
mal tries to bolt to safety.
Red foxes were once im-
ported from England by
people who enjoyed hunting
them. Those imported ani-
mals interbred with native
red foxes, and most of the
red foxes in the U.S. today
are descendents of the
combined strains. As a
species, red foxes are ex-
panding their territory, but


STAFF REPORT

The National Science
Foundation awarded Marie.
Selby Botanical Gardens on
Sarasota's downtown bay
front a prestigious grant to
support curation and expan-
sion of their collections.
Selby is known internation-
ally for its preserved plant
collections that form the
Herbarium.
The NSF grant supports
the complex move of 130
steel cabinets filled with frag-
ile, preserved plant speci-
mens. Some of the preserved
specimens at Selby Gardens
are all that remain of plant
species now extinct in the
wild, while other specimens
provide the species names
and distribution data need-
ed for conservation and plant


rescue action plans.
In the past 30 years, the
Gardens has acquired 90,000
dried plant specimens
mounted on archival paper
and 26,000 glass vials of
flowers in liquid preservative
from around Florida and the
world. These preserved spe-
cimens reflect the Selby Gar-
dens emphasis on epiphytes
- plants such as orchids,
bromeliads, gesneriads, ferns
and aroids that grow perch-
ed on tree branches. Interns
and visiting scientists from
many nations come to study
and conduct taxonomic re-
search on plant identifica-
tion and classification, using
the preserved and annotated
specimens.

WELL BEING


Life lost to obesity:



not just quality


5B
SUNDAY
JULY 30, 2006


Center for Sight celebrates 20 years


with family day for employees


CAROLINE J. CEDEROUIST, MD
GUEST COLUMNIST

With two out of three
Americans overweight today,
we're learning more and
more about the numerous
ways that carrying excess
weight can really affect our
health and diminish our
quality of life.
But you may not have
heard the hard facts about
how overweight and obesity
can diminish your quantity
of life.
. Simply put, overweight
people die younger. On aver-
age, they lose as many years
to their excess weight as
smokers lose to their ciga-,
rettes.
It stands to reason, does-
n't it? With all the health
problems that we know are
caused or worsened by ex-
cess weight, it is to be ex-
pected that those who carry
an excess would die sooner
than those who don't.
Still, we don't often hear
the cost of our extra calories
expressed in such stark
terms. In the popular media,
we've typically seen our


weight problems discussed
as a function of appearance
and appeal, and feel the
imperative to lose weight to
be more attractive and more
successful.
The medical establish-
ment has been warning
about the risks of obesity and
overweight in terms that
address their health conse-
quences, but early death is
seldom mentioned among
these.
Yet Dutch researchers
.studying Americans found
that there's a lot to lose for
those who don't lose their
extra pounds. Published in
the Annals of Internal Med-
icine, the data from the
Dutch study' were gathered
from more than 3,450 sub-
jects between the ages of 30
and 59.
The researchers catego-
rized people according to
their body mass index, or
BMI. A BMI of 19 to 24 is
typically considered healthy,
while a BMI of 25 to 29 is
considered overweight, and
a BMI of 30 or more is clini-
cally obese.
Among those subjects
who were overweight but
not actually obese, the study
showed that 40-year-old fe-
male nonsmokers lost 3.3
years of life due to their ex-
cess weight.
In this weight class, the
40-year-old male nonsmok-
ers lost 3.1 years of life
expectancy.
For nonsmokers who were
clinically obese, the news

only got worse for women,
who lost about seven years
of life because of their obes-
ity, while the men of this size
lost just under six years.
That's six Thanksgivings,
six New Year's Eves, and who
knows how many grandchil-
dren born. That's six Super-
bowls they'll miss, six World
Series they won't see.
Not surprisingly, the loss
is much greater for over-
weight smokers. When we
add the strain and damage
of cigarettes to the body's
burden of obesity, the loss
doubles, to around 13 years
for both men and women.
That's 13 birthdays, 13
Independence Day fireworks
shows, 13 years of some spe-
cial child's school pictures
that will be missed. When
you think about it in per-
sonal and specific terms,.
those extra calories suddenly
seem so much more costly.
"Obesity and overweight
in adulthood are associated
with large decreases in life
expectancy and increases in
early mortality," the journal
reported. "Because of the in-
creasing prevalence of obesi-
ty, more efficient prevention
and treatment should be-
come high priorities in pub-
lic health."
But what "prevention and
treatment" means depends
on whom you talk to, and it's
becoming an increasingly
controversial issue, with
some saying that overweight

Amy Campbell and Catherine Fletcher assisted with planning the event. Part of the fun was
learning everything about the eye and a visit to the parents while they work.

STAFF REPORTER

Center for Sight marked
its 20th anniversary Thurs-
day in the Venice location
with a celebration family
day for the 165 employees
and their families.
"The children learned
everything about the -eye,"
said Amy Campbell, certified
ophthalmolic assistant.
Part of the day the chil-
dren were given a tour of
the Venice facility and were
treated to a day at work with
their parents.
Lori Kagan, marketing di-
rector, said the Center for
Sight believes in the impor-
tance of achieving balance


at work and home. Their phi-
losophy is to foster strong
family values and at the
same time build morale in
the work place. Family day
was the perfect way to let
the staff know they are appre-
ciated.
Founded in 1096 by David
W. Shoemaker, M.D. the
company has grown from
one office to five. Shoemaker
attributes their success to
their employees. He said the
staff's commitment to an
unsurpassed level of patient
care is the reason behind the
strong growth. He used the
family day to thank them for
their hard work and dedica-
tion.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING
? [ ^& .* :


By Vicki Connell,
'M.A., CCC-A
C ertifiedAudiologist
Q. *ty doctor told me not
to use Q-tips in my ears.
Then how do I keep my
ears clean?
A. You don't. The ears are
self cleaning. In a healthy
ear, migration away from
the eardrum occurs along
the upper most layer of
skin in the ear canal. The
foreign object moves as if
it were on a conveyor belt,
being transported outward.
If we placed a grain of
sand on the eardrum it
would travel at. 1mm per
day toward the opening in
the ear canal. After about 3
months, one could reach up
with a fingertip and
remove that same piece of
sand. Many times we
interfere with this natural
cleaning process by using
Q-tips which can result in
consequences. If one
cleans the ear too
vigorously, there will be
little protective skin left on
the surface of the ear canal
leaving it open to infection.
With damage to this
protective skin, fungus,
yeast and bacteria can


I grow and cause chronic
* itching. Additionally, the
I ear canal can bleed easily
if one is taking certain
medications such as
cumadin, aspirin or
anticoagulants so one
should avoid using
mechanical items such as
swabs, bobby pins and
such to clean the ear.
Finally, have you ears
examined by a qualified
Audiologist and follow
their specific instructions
regarding your personal
cerumen management. Call

SLIM RANDLES
GUEST COLUMNIST

"Daisy cutters are the an-
swer," said Doc. "Got to use


more daisy cutters if we're
going to finish fighting and
bring our soldiers home.
Those daisy cutter bombs will
wipe out the best part of a
square block."
"You guys are about half
bloodthirsty this morning,"
Loretta said, refilling our cups
at the counter.
"No sense in doing a job
halfway," Dud said. "Inflict
maximum damage with min-
imum loss to our guys. Only
thing that makes sense."
"Nuke 'em," said Orville,


down at the end of the count-
er.
"Naw, don't want to do
that," said Doc, "but those
daisy cutters ... ."
"You really like them, don't
you?"
Doc looked at Steve. "I
don't think anyone likes
them, including the guys who
drop them. They're just a tool.
A big, dangerous and efficient
tool to use until we can figure
out how to make things
right."
Bert shook his head. Of us


all at the philosophy counter
and world dilemma think
tank, Bert is the one who
reads the science magazines.
He keeps his finger pretty
much on the pulse of all
things new.
"Nuke 'em," said Orville,
again.
"It's time to forget the old-
fashioned methods of war-
fare," Bert said. "'All that killing
and blowing buildings up.
What we need is something
that stops their aggression
without killing them or


knocking down their houses.
They're really close to having
it, too."
"What's that?" said Doc.
"The M bomb," Bert said.
"M is for mental. This bomb
goes off, and instead of killing
people, there's a substance
inside that gets on the wind
and anyone downwind from
it goes nuts. You know, like
they're harmless now and
can't hurt anyone else, but
just run around babbling."
"Run around babbling?"
Doc said. 'Are you just mak-


ing this up, Bert?"
"Of course not. I read
about it on the Internet."
"Does it make a noise
when it explodes?" Loretta
asked.
"I don't know. Why?"
"Because I didn't hear any
loud noises when the M
bomb hit this counter."

SENIOR SCENE


Cleaning house and other obsessions


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
COLUMNIST

I don't like to clean house!
That is not to say I didn't keep
a nice house. Oh, vacuuming
was OK but dusting, no way!
I sat at my table with my
moiAth open while Fran was
telling me about relatives'
cleaning habits. This lady
lived in a third-floor apart-
ment in Brooklyn. Each day
she changed the beds, vacu-
umed and cleaned. Each
week, according to Fran, she
took everything out of her
closets and cleaned them.
And each week she cleaned
her windows, inside and out.
This meant she sat on the
window sill and pulled the
window down to wash it. And,
Fran said, when they went on
a picnic, this compulsive lady
would wash the picnic dishes
before she left and when she
arrived at the picnic, site, she


would wash them again. In
my opinion, thesis carrying
things too far. I dunno!
But who am I to judge? The
first thing I did when I got my
first job was to hire a cleaning
gal and I had one for the rest
of my life. It wasn't that I could
really afford it but I consid-
ered it a necessity like the util-
ity bill.
Many friends tell me they
actually enjoy cleaning
house. I dunno! In my
defense, I like my house to be
lovely and I think I was a good
decorator but I was always
trotting off to a meeting or
working or planning a party.
When my first two children
were small, I ironed many a
romper or dress and of
course, my husband's shirts.
But like to iron? No way!
Before permanent press
for clothes was ever talked
about, I was leafing through a
Sears catalog and saw perma-
nent press men's handker-
chiefs advertised and imme-
diately ordered a dozen or
two and you've already
guessed: I bought shirts and
everything else I could that
didn't have to be ironed.
I have another friend who
ironed her husband's under-
wear, pajamas, dish towels
and everything she could get
hands on.


My friend, Milly, still press-
es some of her clothes almost
every day. She planned her
wardrobe so she and her hus-
band wore matching clothes
whenever they went out. She
always ironed his shirts very
carefully. And they always
looked classy. No wonder
they were a handsome cou-
ple.
I don't feel like quite such a
slob when my friend; Jeanne,
tells me she doesn't buy any-
thing that has to be ironed. I
guess I'm compulsive all
right, but I'm compulsive
about other things. I like to
entertain, have parties and I
guess you could call me a
social butterfly.
I have written many
columns about how different
we all are. Do you reckon this
is just one more example of
how different God created us
all? I dunno!
You can say one thing for
women's lib. Maybe they
started the trend for me to
share the household chores!

Health insurance options


between work and Medicare


JIM MILLER
SAVVY SENIOR


Dear Savvy Senior,
Can you help me locate
affordable health insurance? I
will be retiring soon and need to
find some health coverage to
last me until I'm eligible for
Medicare at age 65. Any ideas?
- Insurance Shopping Cindy
Dear Cindy,
For those who don't have
health insurance because
of an early retirement, layoff,
divorce or a preexisting med-
ical condition options are
available. Here are some dif-
ferent avenues to look into.
COBRA
Depending on how long
you need coverage, one pos-
sible option is to purchase a
policy under COBRA
(Consolidated Omnibus
Budget Reconciliation Act), a
federal law that allows you
continued coverage under
your former employer's
insurance for up to 18
months. (Spouses, divorced
spouses, widows, widowers
and dependent children can
be covered for up to 36
months.) To be eligible for
COBRA, your company must
,employ at least:20 workers.
Also b&aware that this ish't
the cheapest of options. With
COBRA you pay the entire
premium yourself, plus 2
percent in administrative
costs which means a big
price hike if your employer
was subsidizing your premi-
ums. To learn more, contact
the U.S. Department of
Labor's Employee Benefits
Security Administration at
(866) 444-3272 or visit
dol.gov/ebsa. Note that
many states require smaller
companies (fewer than 20
employees) to offer some
type of continuation of cov-
erage to employees. For a


database of health care cov-
erage options by state, visit
nahu.org/consumer/health-
care.
Individual policies
Buying an individual
health insurance policy is
another option to consider
but keep in mind that you
must buy a policy sold in
your home state. In the vast
majority of states, health
insurance costs are based on
the applicant's health history
and can be very expensive.
Any preexisting condition
such as heart disease, dia-
betes, cancer, etc., can drasti-
cally increase your premiums
or can nix your chances of
being accepted at all. Some
states, however, require indi-
vidual health insurers to offer
everyone a plan, a mandate
known as "guaranteed issue."
To compare policies, visit
ehealthinsurance.com or call
. (800) 977-8860. If you need
some additional help, con-
tact a licensed independent
insurance agent in your state
at nahu.org/consumer/find-
agent.cfmn.
Health savings accounts
If you're relatively healthy
and don't spend a lot on
medical care, a more afford-
able option is a health sav-
ings account (HSA). How it
works is you purchase a
high-deductible (low-premi-
um) health insurance policy
with a deductible of at least
$1,050 for an individual or
$2,100 for a family. Then you
open an HSA, which is a tax-
sheltered savings account
(similar to an IRA) that'you
can withdraw from, anytime,
tax-free to pay for medical
expenses that aren't covered
by your high deductible
health plan. And, whatever
money you don't use rolls
over from year-to-year, pro-
viding you with a stash of
cash for your later retirement
years. Each year you can
fund your HSA with tax-
deductible contributions,
which in 2006 can be up to
the amount of the
deductible, but not more
than $2,700 for individuals or
$5,450 for families, and if
you're 55 and older, you can
make an additional contribu-


tion of $700. To find an HSA
plan, visit hsainsider.com.
Short-term policies
If you're in need of tempo-
rary health coverage (one to
12 months) a short-term
health insurance policy is
another low-cost option to
look into if you're healthy
with no preexisting medical
conditions. To get quotes and
coverage details visit ehealth-
insurance.com or call (800)
977-8860.
Savvy tip
If you're denied coverage
because of a serious preexist-
ing medical condition, you
may still be able to get cover-
age from a state assigned risk
pool. Thirty-three states cur-
rently provide high-risk poor
coverage, which you can
apply for through an insur-
ance agent or directly to the
state. Coverage costs more
than private coverage
because all the people in the
pool have serious medical
problems, but rates are
capped generally between
125 and 200 percent of the
-average individual market
premium. For more informa-
tion on insurance for those
who can't get individual cov-
erage or to find out what
your state offers, visit
nahu.org/consumer/health-
care.
Elder law
Dear Savvy Senior,
I need to get some legal help
for my 72-year-old mother but
am not sure where to turn. A
friend recommended I find an
S.attorney .who specializes in
elder'law but I'm not*familiar
with this. What can you tell me
about elder law and where can I
find some help? Legally
Challenged
Dear Challenged,
With the tidal wave of
baby boomers growing older,
elder law has become one of
the fastest growing fields in
the legal profession. Here's
what you should know:
Elder law
Elder law is a legal special-
ty that helps older citizens

STAFF REPORT


For consumers seeking a
fun, affordable vacation aboard

I drive down the road, and
everyone is on the phone:'
adults, kids, seniors, everyone.
Who is everyone talking to? I
thought for a while that
everyone who was on. a cell
phone had to be talking to
someone else on a cell phone.
It made logical sense. But no
one who uses a cell phone is
ever listening. I guess if I were
being charged by the minute,
I would want to be the one
talking, too.
I have always kind of half-
wondered if someone in the
next car would call me and
say, "Hey, I'm right next to
you. How are you doing?"
I have a part-time job
where I work with several
teenagers. They insist on car-
rying their cell phones on
[heir person at all times. I sat
wondering what they would
talk about while they were
supposed to be working-
once their phones rang. I
waited and waited. When one
finally did ring, I was sur-
prised that the sum total of
their conversations included:

"We take exceptional effort
to assure that the events and
festivals showcased to our
travelers are programs of
integrity that have a positive
local and regional impact and
community benefits," said
Staff, CEO of the company
that has been conducting


trips to Asia for 18 years.
She says that the most im-
portant rule of elephant polo
is protecting the health and
welfare of the elephants used
in the tournament. Abuse of
the elephants is considered to
be the most serious offense.
"Witnessing an event like
elephant polo," she said, "re-
veals many facets of a culture


in just a day or two. It's incred-
ibly insightful to join in on
these occasions, and it's a lot
of fun. And it's also possible to
take a jungle trek through the
surrounding countryside
atop these graceful and intel-
ligent creatures."
The tournament is spQn-
sored by Anantara Resorts,
which maintains an Elephant


Camp on its. premises near
Chiang Saen.
She said that travelers on
private Custom Journeys and
Small Group Trips of up to 16
people experience a range of
events and festivals through-
out the year.
Clients on Custom Jour-
neys to Thailand can expect
to pay per person daily from


$250 and up for land costs
that include beyond-the-or-
dinary lodging, meals, trans-
port and the services of a pri-
vate guide. Rates for these.
customized itineraries vary,
are calculated on programs
and activities requested.
Asia Transpacific Journeys
has been crafting private

ia/Pacific region since 1987.

Another instance of a silly
cell phone conversation hap-
pened to me the other day
while I was at a restaurant. I
was happily enjoying a quiet
meal, as my office had been
really busy that day, and my
phone had been ringing off
the hook, when a lady three
- booths away from me called
someone. Typically, it doesn't
bother me to have someone
on the phone while I am eat-
ing, but this woman's volume
in her one-sided conversa-
tion seemed to want to in-
clude everyone in the restau-
rant. I now knew all the inti-
mate details of how she pre-
ferred to clean her house, the
vacation she was going to
take and a precise inventory
of the clothes she was going


to take on her vacation. She
talked nonstop for 20 min-
utes. I didn't think she was
ever going to come up for air.
I wonder if the person on the'
other end felt as though I did:
that she would shut up for
five seconds and let someone
else talk.
Why is it that people went
from having cell phones in a
case of emergency to having
an excuse to talk all the time?
Stephen King recently
wrote a book about how peo-
ple who used cell .phones
turned into zombies. Anyone
who was using a cell phone at
a certain time during this par-
ticular day was zapped by a
pulse and turned into a flesh-
eating zombie.
I am personally biased
against the cellphone. While I
have one a pink razor, the

I must admit I hate talking on
the thing. I really don't have

more minutes in my rollover

There simply is no set eti-

naturally people are out of

What cracks me up is that
movie theaters are trying to
get people to be more courte-
ous with their cell phones,
but they are doing it in the
most polite way possible.,
They have ads at the
beginning of the movie show-
ing how cell phones can
interrupt the flow of a movie .
by having the characters in
the movie/commercial be
distracted by a ringing cell
phone coming from the audi-
ence. Comical? Yes. Enforc-
ing? Obviously not.
Not to mention the fact
that whenever I go to a movie
these days, I can barely see
the screen anymore because
the lights from all the cell
phones that are text messag-

ing it so bright in the theater

that it becomes difficult to see
the screen.
Another thing about cell
phones that cracks me up is a
recent movement toward
bluetooth headsets. People
are often seen wearing a small
plastic thing on their ears that
emits a blue glow.
Those things are so annoy-
ing. I can't tell when someone ,
is talking to me or is on the
phone.
Also, whenever people
have those things on, they,
look like one of the members
of the landing party from the
starship Enterprise.
Is it just me that doesn't


find it difficult to want a
minute to myself? Call me
crazy, but if I.want to talk to
someone, I do just that. If I
want to go to a movie, I watch
it.
The emergence of the cell
phone gave a whole rebirth to
Alexander Graham Bell's nov-
el idea. I'd bet when Bell
invented the telephone, he
never expected it would take
off more than a 100 years later
in a whole new way.

Heat can kill: Make summertime safe for pets


BY ERIKA CAPEK /
SUN INTERN

Dogs and cats, just like humans,
feel the burn from the summer's
sweltering heat. That's why it's so
important for owners to be aware of
safety precautions in summer for
their beloved pets.
"Climate control is a huge factor,
especially in the summertime, when
caring for your pets," said Susan
Miller, executive director of Sun-
coast's Animal Aid Society.
If dogs are left outside, the owner
must provide fresh food, a large
water source, and plenty of shade.
'Animals, particularly dogs be-
cause of their heavy coats, are very
sensitive to heat," said John Mar-
tellini, staff veterinarian at North
Port Animal Hospital. "This can lead
to heat stroke and heat exhaustion."
If dogs aren't allowed inside the
house, owners should use fans and
provide plenty of shade. Shaving a
dog may also help keep them cooler
during the hot summer months.
However, check with your vet first
before shaving your pet, because for
many breeds, the long hair actually
gives them insulation to keep them
cooler. Also, shaved dogs can more easily get
sunburn.
Miller warned that it is wrong to leave ani-
mals in a closed car.
"Even if they're left in there for two minutes,
they can get overheated," Miller said. "It's basi-
cally on the same level as leaving a child in the
car."


Introducing...


When trying to get rid of these pesky para-
sites, Martellini suggests visiting your local vet
or buying products from "reputable compa-
nies."
"There's little recourse from buying prod-
ucts from unknown companies if something
happens," Martellini said. "Technical services
are also available. Basically, as the saying goes,,


Nacho!


'You get what you pay for.'"
The best insurance against losing a friend is
microchipping. A tiny chip the size of a "pen-
cil point" is inserted by a needle in the back of
the animal's neck, and when the lost pet is
scanned, the owner's identification and num-
ber is given.
"Especially during hurricane season, iden-

The Adoption Trail, sponsored by the
Animal Rescue Coalition of Sarasota, is in
partnership with. 12 other animal welfare
organizations. The goal of the program is to
increase the overall adoption rates of


i tification is a necessity," Miller
said. "Just as you would do for
your families, evacuate when
you're told and be sure to
include water, food, and any
medicines your pet needs.
Only use animal shelters as a
last resort."
Martellini also adds that
sometimes shelters don't take
animals ahead of time so it's
very important to have a plan
and to take whatever is neces-
sary to ensure the animal's
well-being. Sarasota County
will have designated hurri-
cane shelters that will accept
pets.
In planning for possible hur-
ricanes, it is essential that your
pet's vaccinations are up-to-
date and that you have docu-
mentation of it. Animals for
whom current vaccinations
cannot be proven will not be
accepted in public hurricane
shelters and often will not be
accepted at boarding kennels
either.
"Some of the worst horror
HOTO ILLUSTRATION stories would be when owners
would leave their pets in the
cars," Miller said.
Martellini did not want to disclose any dis-
heartening details from his experience for fear
of people wanting to copy or "out-do" the hor-
rible stories. -

Helping pets shed extra pounds


SPECIALTY THE GONDOLIER SUN


You may not expect Jillian
Michaels,. one of the personal
trainers on NBC's hit series
"The Biggest Loser," to have an
obesity problem in her own
household. But her chubby
Chihuahua, Baxter, is one of a
rapidly growing number of
America's portly pets that are
tipping the scales at an all-
time high.
Baxter is currently 11
pounds, while his ideal body
weight is eight pounds.
"I've made the same mis-
take that many other pet own-
ers have made by giving Baxter
too many treats," admits
Michaels. "Because I love him
so much, it can be hard to say
no. But in the long run, I know
that keeping Baxter at an ideal
weight will make him a happi-
er and healthier dog."
To help her dog lose weight,
Michaels is part of the Hill's
2006 National PetFit Chal-
lenge, a competition designed
to help raise awareness of the
serious consequences of pet
obesity and encourage owners


to make positive changes to
their pets' lifestyles. Her veteri-
narian helped create a person-
alized plan for Baxter, which

includes changing his food to
a low-fat, reduced-calorie
food, Hill's Prescription Diet
r/d, and making sure he gets


plenty of exercise.
As many as 40 percent of
American household pets are
obese or overweight-that's 48
million cats and dogs-yet few
pet owners recognize the seri-
ousness of the condition. If
you think your pet may be
lugging around some excess
pounds, it is important to
speak with your veterinari-
an.
To give your pet a chance
at stardom when he or she
reaches a target weight,
enter your pet into the Hill's
National PetFit Challenge.
Twelve regional winners (six
cats and six dogs) will win
pet prizes and an all-
expense-paid trip to New
York City for the final awards
ceremony.
The two national winners
(one cat and one dog) will also
receive two round-trip airline
tickets and a three-night
accommodation at an up-
scale, pet-friendly hotel, and
will be awarded the title of
champions.

Challenge, visit PetFit.com.

scored the top spot in the
American League.
The newly renovated ball-
park offers such hits as veggie
burgers, a vegetarian burrito,
black beans and rice, pasta
dishes, a fruit cup, and peanut
butter and jelly sandwiches
for kids.
"With a stacked lineup of
delicious vegetarian fare, the
Devil Rays are the champs of
the American League when it
comes to animal-friendly din-
ing," says PETA spokesperson
Dan Shannon.
Why is meat striking out
with more and more fans?
For one thing, vegetarians
have a much lower incidence
of life-threatening ailments
such as heart attacks, strokes,
and cancer than meat-eaters
do, which means that they
can count on being around a
lot longer to root for the home
team.
Many fans, especially
younger ones, are looking for
meatless options as they
become increasingly aware of
how animals are treated in
factory farms and slaughter-
houses.
And if fans knew about the
pig lips and intestines in those
meat hot dogs, they'd turn
greener than the outfield
grass in April.

Finding an attorney
A good resource to help
you find an experienced
elder law attorney in your
area is the National Academy
of Elder Law Attorneys, a
Nonprofit professional asso-
ciation that provides a
nationwide directory on their
Web site at naela.com. It's
also important to know that
most elder law attorneys
don't specialize in:all areas of
elder law, so be sure to
choose someone who has the
expertise that matches your
needs. Once you get a list of
some possible candidates -
to ensure you make a good
hire call them and ask a lot
of questions including:
How long have they been
in practice?
What percentage of their
practice is devoted to elder
law?
What area of elder law do
they specialize in and how
much experience do they
have?
Ask them for references
and check them!
Is there a fee for the ini-
tial consultation?
What are the ongoing
fees, and what can you
expect to pay long term?
What papers and other
information do you need to
bring to your first meeting?
Other resources
Depending on your needs,
there are several other legal
resources for seniors you
should know about, includ-
ing:
Senior legal hotlines:


There are 22 states including
the District of Columbia and
Puerto Rico that offer senior
legal hotlines, where all
seniors over age 60 have

the states that offer this ser-
vice and their toll free num-
ber visit legalhotlines.org.

able in your community. To

vides AARP members a free

Jacaranda Public Library's Senior Youth Librarian Sheila Kaufer dances around the room wearing a "pizza hat."




The youth staff of Jacaranda Public Library
in Venice served up treats with pizza and
pasta stories recently. The program was part
of this summer's Book Feast program for
ages 5-11. Each week the chef visits a differ-
ent place with stories, songs, music, guests,
crafts and fun activities. Call 861-1275 for
schedules and more information.


The children made necklaces out of pasta.


Mikayla Mort wore a puppet for the storytelling portion of the program.

Why are other builders,just giving money away?


Because


* I


DON'T let cash incentives drive
your decision. Some builders offer huge
discounts on prices that may have already been
inflated. Or on floor plans that might not be selling
well. KB Home believes in giving you great value
from the start. On every home.


DION'T settle for a home that's
no t built just for you. A good deal ,;
one that works for you. Sacrificing features you want
just: to get a good price won't bring happiness. Getting
whpt you want with KB Home-and nothing you
dor I't-brings real value.


DO bring any builder's price i
sheet to a KBHome community.
We'll show you how KB Home price and value
really stacks up against the other builders.That's
the real question you should be asking. And
KB Home has the answer.


S- _- SEE THE DIFFERENCE. Bring another builder's price sheet to any one of these KB Home communities today.
