TV show recreates local dolphin attack


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Venice residents Chris
Golden, office manager, and
Mark Mason, service consul-
tant of Gulf Harbor Marine,
Nokomis, will become TV
stars Sunday night when the
National Geographic Chan-
nel airs "Hunter and Hunt-
ed" at 8 pm. on Comcast
Channel 109.
The story is the re-enact-
ment of a near deadly attack
and drowning in the Intra-
coastal Waterway by the Al-
bee Road Bridge in Nokomis
in July 1993.
Golden plays Sarasota
resident Kim Foy, who jump-
ed into the water to swim
with "Beggar," -a dolphin
given the name because of
his habit of constantly beg-
ging for fish from passing
boats.
The four members of the
Foy family were boating
when Kim, in the water with
her 4-year-old son, was bit-
ten seriously on her leg by
Beggar, according to Golden.
Eight-year-old Jimmy
Palm and his friend, 6-year-
old Kevin Szafan, who attend
Laurel Nokomis School,
played the two Foy sons for
the TV program.
"They were very happy to
ditch a day at school and join
the all-day filming session,"
said Donna Palm, Jimmy's
mother and owner of ReMax
Gulf Shores Realty in Venice.
Venetians Tom Lanaida
and Alex Whalen played the
two lads who during the
incident were taunting the
dolphin by banging the side
of the boat.
Filming took place in
February, when Capt. Tim
and Cheryl Polito, who had
opened Kahuna's Wind &
Waves store six weeks earlier,
were approached by Me-
ghan O'Connor, a National
Geographic Channel associ-
ate producer. She required
four boats and help in find-
ing local people to act in the
TV documentary..

leagues, Cheryl Polito identi-

by Mark Mason, as actor "sons" Jimmy Palm and Kevin Szafan watch during filming of the
re-enactment of a 1993 dolphin attack.


fied and put together the
cast according to age re-
quirements.
"O'Connor came into the
office, told us about the film-
ing and popped the ques-
tion, 'Would you be interest-
ed in being in it, because you
are around the same age and
build?' said Golden. "My
first impression was no, be-
cause I could not take a day
off from work for this, but
then I spoke to my marina
manager and he encouraged
it. I went to Mark Mason,
who I thought would be
game for this, and he pop-
ped at the opportunity."
As Ned and Kim Foy,
Mason and Golden set off
with their actor "sons" for an
outing accompanied by the
two young men in another
boat with the TV crew and
cameramen following.
"They filmed us riding in
the boat, getting off at an


island, and even shot some
film under the deck below
the dock of Casey Key Fish
House near Blackburn Point
Bridge," said Mason.
The actors purchased bait
to feed the dolphin.
Filming of the incident
was done near Spanish
Point, because the area near
the Albee Road Bridge was
being dredged, making it too
murky for filming under
water.
In the original incident
the dolphin was all wound
up from chasing from the
other boat to the family boat
to be fed and appears to
have taken its frustrations
out when Kim Foy went into
the water, said Mason.
In the recreation, a cam-
eraman was the "dolphin,"
riding a boogie board mov-
ing like Beggar. Golden was
dragged down a couple of
times under water, then "it"


"bit" her leg. There was fake
blood where she was badly
bitten.
"They made us act like we
were hysterical and she was
bleeding to death," Mason
said. "I dived in to save my
wife."
Because they filmed on a
cold day when the water
temp was only about 65 de-
grees, Szafan did not get in
the water, although the
younger Foy son may have
originally.
The filming took nine
hours, of which Golden and
Mason were in water two
hours.
All the local actors and the
Politos are anxiously looking
forward to the National
Geographic edition of events
and their portrayals of the
Foys.

There were no smoking
guns at Thursday night's
meeting of the Grove Terrace
Residents Council, Venice
Housing Authority and De-
partment of Health and Urban
Development-Miami officials.
That's what HUD officials
wanted to confirm before
putting their seal of approval
onVHA's application for a per-
mit to demolish Grove Ter-
race.
Named "Brookside Village,"
the replacement project is
designed to be completed in
two phases, each with 72
units, for a total of 144; there
are currently 50 units.
Demolition is expected to
begin in July.2007-and the pro-
ject to be completed in late
2008.
Issuance of the permit is
the last regulatory step before
the city's only public housing
complex can be torn down
and replaced.
Requirements fulfilled
For months, Residents
Council President Carter Can-
ada has fought the project,
arguing that the VHA board
"kept them (the residents) out
of the loop" in the planning
and development process.
HUD guidelines state that


the residents council must be
involved in decisions regard-
ing renovation or rehabilita-
tiorf.
The VHA board disputed
Canada' claim, and HUD offi-
cials found it unsupported.
"We have not done any-
thing but communicate with
the residents," said VHA Chair
Sam Prost.
"Consultation has taken
place between the RC and
VHA, per public record, in
accordance with HUD rul-
ings," said Miami-HUD repre-
sentative Jose Cintron. "We
have viewed the communica-
tions; VHA has fulfilled their
requirements. It doesn't re-
quire that RC input be fol-
lowed."
The VHA applied in Feb-
ruary for Low-Income Hous-
ing Tax Credit financing from
the Florida Housing Finance
Corp. and learned July 28 its
application had been granted.
The tax credit award will
finance the $11.3 million rede-
velopment project.
"Now that funding has
been awarded, we can start
moving forward with engi-
.neering and architects," said
Chip Cornell of Piceme
Development Corp., the com-
pany partnering with ITLA on
the project; that is, "following

Chris Sharek: Engineering with enthusiasm


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER

Utilities Manager Chris
Sharek has been with the city
of Venice for five years now,
and there is one thing that
has stayed the same all that
time his enthusiasm for
the job, and for life in general.
At age 34, he understands
that he still has a lot to learn,
but excitement about life is
his basic philosophy.
"My enthusiasm is proba-
bly both the good and the bad
that I bring to the job," he
said. "I'm very passionate
about what I do, but I can
sometimes be too much of a
perfectionist. I just enjoy life
every day, no matter what I
happen to be doing.
"One of my personal he-
roes is Jim Valvano," said
Sharek. "Many remember
him as the North Carolina
State basketball coach who
died of cancer several years,
ago. But he was also a great
teacher, writer and motiva-
tional speaker 'who chal-

lenged people to live with
purpose and enthusiasm.
"Valvano often quoted
Ralph Waldo Emerson, who
once wrote, 'Nothing great
can be done without enthusi-
asm,' Sharek said. "Then he


would say that he knew he
had a full day of living when
he had been able to think, to
cry and to laugh. I am re-
minded of that each day as I
continue to learn from those
around me, and put into


practice the things I'm learn-
ing."
Source of inspiration
Sharek is a Florida native,
born on the Air Force base in
Panama City (his father was a
career military officer).
Though his first three years
were.spent traveling with his
parents (mainly Germany),
he grew up and attended ele-
mentary and high school in
Satellite Beach on Florida's
"Space Coast."
"My main interests
throughout high school were
soccer and water sports," he
said. "In fact,'I went to college
primarily to play soccer, even
though I didn't get a scholar-
ship for it.
"It was at Brevard Com-
munity College that I got my
first taste of political activism
as a member of Greenpeace,"
he said. "We were all com-
plaining and demonstrating
about the environmental
issues of the day, when one
day I was struck by the idea
that, instead of just com-


plaining, I could really do
something about it.
"That's when I decided to
become an environmental
engineer," Sharek continued.
"I found that the University of
Central Florida in Orlando,
which had previously been
Florida Technical University,
was originally founded on
engineering, in support of the
nearby NASA facilities and
operations, and was one of
the few schools at that time to
offer environmental engi-
neering."
He went to UCF, earning a
bachelor's degree in environ-
mental engineering in 1996,
and a master's degree in
water resources engineering
in 1998. He also met his future
wife Christy, an industrial
engineering major.
"Of all places, we met in
the lobby of the engineering
building at UCF," Sharek said.
"It was just a casual, chance
meeting, but for me it was
love at first sight. She's also a

ISAIAH DAVID HART came to the Cow Ford on the St.
Johns River in 1821. He paid $72 for 18 acres at Market
Street, on which he built a log cabin for himself, his wife
and six children. Hart is credited with the original concept
of dividing the land into building lots and laying out the
streets for a new town at a cattle crossing. The new town
was named Jacksonville, in honor of Gen. Andrew
Jackson, the first military governor of Florida Territory.

County offers tips on surviving rip currents


STAFF REPORT


Each year more than 100
people lose their lives in
drowning accidents involving
rip currents. Eighty percent of
all beach rescues relate to rip
currents, making rip currents
the leading surf hazard on
Sarasota County beaches.
Rip currents are swift-
moving currents of water


flowing away from shore.
They typically extend from
the shoreline, through the
surf zone (the area between.
the high-tide level on' the
beach to the seaward side of
breaking waves) and past the
line of breaking waves.
Siesta and Lido Beaches
historically have more rip cur-
rent activity than any other
Sarasota County beaches.


J. R. Ayers, Sarasota
County's general manager of
lifeguard operations, said
swimmers can avoid rip cur-
rent problems by taking the
following precautions:
Learn to swim in the surf.
Swimming in the surf is not
the same as a pool or lake.
Look for posted signs or
warning flags. A red flag
means conditions are haz-


ardous.
Check with lifeguards
before swimming and obey
all instructions.
Never swim alone. Swim
near a lifeguard.
Always assume rip cur-
rents are present even if you
don't see them.
If in doubt, don't go out.
For more information

tact Sarasota County Life-
guard Operations at 861-5000

Helping youngsters cope with bus anxiety


First-time commuters got to take a dry run
Friday in the hope they can scratch riding ..,
the bus off their list of worries for the ; '-
first day of school Monday. ''


DOUCIICA AIRDA


STAFF WRITER

It was touch and go Friday
for 5-year-old Kyle Lines.
He didn't want to get into
the big school bus then
with patient coaxing from Dot
Remo, Sarasota County
School District bus driver, he
boarded.
"When the parents bring
their child to ride the school
bus, youngsters become
upset," said Remo.
"I didn't even know he was
afraid of the bus," said Carol
Horton of Venice, his grand-
mother.
"Usually the child feels bet-
ter after the mother or father
leaves, but you have to get
them into the bus first," Remo
said.
Lessening the anxiety of
Kyle and other first-time bus
riders was the purpose of a
program put on by the staff at
AAA's Venice branch Friday.
They got safety tips about
school and bus riding,
learned how to buckle up' and
took a 10-minute ride so they
would good feel about riding.
Transportation Supervisor
Marilyn Adams was on hand
with a remote control mini
bus to entertain the children.
"We use the mini bus as a
training tool at all of our
demonstrations," she said.


Playing tag
Debbie Bowman, a 23-year
veteran bus driver for Sara-
sota County, told the kids that
they need to use the hand
rails when boarding and not
to scream or yell in the bus.
"With 77 other little people
riding," said Bowman, "every-
one has to be sitting down."
She suggested they wear
the name tags given by the
school or have the parents
make one with the child's
name and address on it. They
need to wear it for at least two
weeks until the driver and the
student get used to the bus
stops.
"When school begins, it is
hard for the driver to know
where the children get on and
off," she said. "Sometimes the
parent drives the child to
school and they take the bus
for the return trip. When this
happens the child doesn't
remember his exact stop."

Kyle Lines comes down the stairs after taking his first school
bus ride as bus driver Dot Remo looks on. The Sarasota
County School District held the event to help orient kinder-
gartners who will be riding a bus to school starting Monday.


Driver shortage
Adams said every county
in Florida is short on bus dri-
vers.
"Sarasota is breaking up
some of the routes to try to
cover all areas," she said.
She added they are train-
ing drivers day and night to
keep up with the demand.
Adams said the district will
do anything it can to promote
transportation safety. A pro-
gram such as Friday's first-
time school bus ride is an all-
volunteer activity her drivers
do for the safety of the chil-
dren.
Remo said drivers have to
understand the age groups on
the bus. Grade-school chil-
dren are happy to keep their
seat belts on; when they get to
middle school, it's a little
more difficult and they start
to challenge it.
"By the time they reach
high school they are aware of
driver education and under-
stand it is part of process," she
said.
Community support
Also on hand Friday were
representatives from the
sheriff's office fingerprinting
students for their parents. Lt.
Chuck Lesaltato said the fin-
gerprints and photographs
are turned over to the parent
for their use.
"We do not keep any cop-
ies, but ask the parent to keep
it in a safe place," he said.
Detective William Carroll
said the program was part of
Crime Stoppers. The inter-
national program has been
effect for 16 years. There are
4,000 members in the
United States and Canada
and they will pay a reward
up to $1,000 for information
leading to an, arrest. This
program also helps identify
children in case of a kidnap-
ping.

hosted by the staff of AAA,

SHAREK from Page lA
Florida native, and we just
seemed to have everything in
common. Christy has been
my best friend and buddy
ever since."
They have a 6-year-old
son, Zach, who is following in
his father's footsteps not only
on the soccer field and with
water sports, but also with an
interest in engineering.
"With both parents and
many of our friends being
engineers," admitted Sharek,
"I guess it's pretty natural for
him to think in terms of some
form of engineering.
Other issues
One of the most interesting
current projects of the utilities
department is the relocation
of the old lime pits near the
wellfield area just off Pine-
brook Road.
"Up until around 1990,"
Sharek explained, "the city
had a lime softening water
treatment process by which
lime was used to settle out the
sediment in the groundwater.
The leftover combination of
lime and sediment material
was fox many years left to dry
out in areas just north of
where the baseball fields are
now.
"The Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
had expressed some concern
that these deposits might
someday have an impact on
the quality of groundwater in
that area, so they have asked
us to move the material to
other approved locations.
"However, we can't just go
in and start removing the
material. Over the years, a
number of gopher tortoises
have built dens in that area.
So before we could do any-
thing about moving the lime
material, we had to get the
permission of the state Fish
and Wildlife Commission to
relocate the tortoises away
from the work site. That has
been a huge project in itself.
"Although we hope to have
all the tortoises relocated next
week, it may take several
weeks to complete the lime
*removal project."
Responsibility
If you ask Sharek what has
been the most difficult part of
his job, however, he will not
mention the tortoises or the
lime pits.
"The hardest for me," he
said, "has been adapting to
being a supervisor and man-
ager of people, and adapting'
to the different management
styles of four different bosses
in five years they've all
been unique, and each very
different from the other."
After three years as an
assistant engineer with Boyle
Engineering in Sarasota, wor-
king on pipeline and land
development projects, he
came to the city of Venice in
2001 as the assistant city engi-
neer, and attained his profes-
sional engineer license in
2002. During that time, he
worked under the supervision
of CityEngineer Nancy Wood-
ley.
In October 2003, Sharek
was asked to take the reins of
the new engineering division
of the utilities department,
and became one of the assis-
tant utilities directors, under
the supervision of then-Di-
rector John Lane.
Following Lane's retire-
ment in 2004, the utilities de-
partment was reorganized,
including the contracting out
of several administrative
functions to Operations Man-
agement International, and
the layoff of 13 employees.
"That's when City Manager
Marty Black asked me to be-
come the utilities manager,"
said Sharek. "That position
was to act as a professional
engineer on behalf of the city
over the divisions of water
production, distribution,
waste water treatment and
reuse water. In addition, I was


to be in sort of a watchdog
capacity over the OMI opera-
tions.
"It has certainly been an
interesting two years," Sharek
said. "On the day after I start-
ed this job actually in the
middle of the night there
was a huge break in a sewer
force main on Ridgewood.
That was a real initiation for
me, I quickly got over any

roadway around the wooded area and work site.


romantic ideas I may have
had about running a utilities
operation when I saw what
our employees had to endure
that night to get the job done.
"We also found that the
department was facing some
major financial issues which
have taken awhile to resolve,"
he said. "So that has been
another learning experience
for me, to work with the city
manager, finance and pur-
chasing to get things back on
track."
Sharek admitted that the
past two years have not been
without mistakes on his part.
"I tend to very impatient
and sometimes impulsive,"


he said. "My biggest relief
came last March, when the
city hired Don Jacobovitz to
be public services general
manager. Part of his job is to
share with me his knowledge
and expertise in the areas of
human resources and admin-.
istrative operations. Don is a
great teacher, and I really
appreciate his assistance on a
daily basis."
Still enjoying life
Sharek has many interests
and activities that keep him
busy outside of his engineer-
ing responsibilities with the
city.
"I can't seem to get away

from the water," he said. "My
family is out on the water in
some way every weekend -
canoeing on the rivers, riding
our Sea-Doos in the gulf or
bays, snorkeling we just
love being outdoors.
"For the past 12 years, I've
also been an avid snowboard-
er," he said. "So far, I've been
to the North Carolina moun-
tains several times, and out to
Colorado. Christy has gone
with me on those trips, but
she isn't quite as gung ho
about the sport as I am. Our
ultimate goal is to snowboard
on every continent before we
get too old to do it anymore.
"In fact, my wife gave me a
surprise birthday gift recent-
ly," Sharek said. "We will be
going down to Chile next
month to the Andes Moun-
tains. She has purchased a
special package for me, in-
cluding 'special' insurance
which allows me to go to 'the
good hospital' if I get injured.
I'll be able to jump out of a


helicopter and snowboard
down the mountain I've
never done that before, but I
can't wait to try it."
For the past six years,
Sharek has also been an ad-
junct math professor at Man-
atee Community College.
During the summers, he
teaches algebra and pre-alge-
bra at the Venice campus,
while during the fall/winter
terms he teaches at the Bra-
denton campus.
Continuing goals
Sharek set these goals for
himself last October in
response to the performance
appraisal done by the city
manager:
"Foremost, I will expand
my efforts in personnel man-
agement ... (and) 'keep con-
nected with the employees by
creating an environment in
which they can express con-
cerns without creating a void
of structure and discipline.
"Secondarily, I will become


more familiar and involved
with the annual budget pro-
cess...."
Commenting about the i
latter goal, Sharek said, "Al-
though the department bud-
get is technically the respon-
sibility of OMI, and will be for
at least the next three years of
their contract, I want to be'
aware of all that's involved,
and take advantage of the'
opportunity to learn as much.
as I can about the city's pro-
cess and expectations.
"I have to walk a really fine
line," he said, "a balancing act
between working very closely'
with OMI, but still being per-
ceived by city officials as.
being 'on the city's side,' and:
by the employees as being,-
supportive of their needs and
concerns."
It is a tightrope he intends
to walk carefully, but also with,
continuing, enthusiasm and;,
energy that is the only way:
he knows how to work and
live.

Canada prefers a rehab of
the existing structures and
preservation of green space.
That was more in line with
what the residents want, he
said.
Cintron said that wasn't a
viable option.
"The quality of the build-
ings you have now will con-
tinue to decline," he said.
"This is your best alternative."

In their hands
Residents has also ex-
pressed concern about being
relocated during construc-
tion and a perceived lack of
assurances they would be
welcomed back afterward.
Former VHA executive
director Peter Lopez resigned
unexpectedly last year after
the Gondolier Sun made pub-
lic the contents of an e-mail
from Lopez to Picerne in
which he discussed using the
temporary relocation of the
residents as part of a plan to
reduce the number of units
available to low-income fami-
lies.
The VHA board pledged
then that there would be no
such reduction, and Oper-
ations Manager Deborah
Bevans, the acting executive
director since Lopez' resigna-
tion, recently said current res-
idents will have priority over
any others as long as they
continue to follow the current
HUD rules and abide by their
new landlords' rules.
According to Bevans, a
relocation specialist will be to
work with residents on an
individual basis to identify
housing resources. Section 8
housing vouchers, security
deposits and other relocation
assistance will be provided to
them as well.
By the end of the meeting
Canada had pledged his sup-
port.

STAFF REPORT

Sarasota County Area
Transit introduces the first
diesel-electric hybrid bus to
its fleet on Monday, Aug. 7.
To celebrate the more fuel-
efficient hybrid, SCAT will
offer passengers free rides on
the hybrid bus between now
and the end of the year.
With its bright green-blue-
gold-white design, the bus
can be easily spotted as it ro-
tates daily among the differ-
ent SCAT routes. On Aug. 7,
the hybrid will operate on
Route 17, which runs be-
tween the Venice Train Depot
and the Downtown Transfer
Station.
The new bus is in the Bus
Rapid Transit body style. This
modern style has a curved
front and rear with distinctive
headlights.
The hybrid is the first of 10
the county has ordered and will
have in operation by early2007,
making SCAT the owner of the
largest fleet of BRT hybrid
buses in Florida and, possibly,
with the largest fleet of all types
of hybrid buses. An additional
20 hybrid buses are planned


for delivery in 2007.
The new hybrid buses are
part of Sarasota County's
commitment to reducing fos-
sil fuel use through an inidtia-
tive called the 2030 Chalt-
lenge, which was adopted by
the board of county commis-
sioners on July 11.
The hybrid will be more
fuel-efficient than the stan-
dard diesel bus and w-ill sig-
nificantly reduce harmful
emissions. The hybrid elec-
tric-diesel is 25-30 percent
more fuel-efficient than the
standard diesel bus, saving an
estimated 7,000 gallons of
diesel fuel per year. It also can
reduce most emissions by
more than 90 percent.
When the bus accelerates
from a stop, the battery-pow-
ered electric motors assist the
diesel engine for powerful
acceleration. Once under
way, the engine-driven gener-
ator charges the batteries. The
vehicle's regenerative braking
captures energy normally lost
as brake heat, and returns it
the vehicle's energy storage.
Allison-General Motors of
Detroit, Mich., developed the
transmission, and Gillig Corp.


of Hayward, Calif., designed
and built the bus. '
The BRT hybrid bus costs
$500,000. A standard diesel
bus costs about $300,000. The
hybrids are mostly purchased
with Federal Transit Admin-
istration grants.
For more information


about SCAT's hybrid bus,

Call Center at 861-5000. For

t is a growing and valuable service with an
odd, but popular name SCAT. The
county's bus service has just expanded,
and has added a new North Port route,
thanks to a recent $5 million investment.
Other improvements are in the works as well.
SCAT is an acronym with many interest-
ing meanings that make it easy to remember,
And it also has a simple phone number: 861-

Some people say "scat" when chasing
away the neighbor's cat. "Scat.. Get out of my
backyard, cat."
For naturalists on a hike, the word sug-

There is no bus service on holidays either.

Schools using



new set of 'R's


BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER

SDr.. Gary Norris, as part-of
his NeXt Generation learning-
plan, has been espousing
using the three "R"s in educa-
tion.
They are not the three you
and I were taught -- reading,
writingg and 'rithmatic but
rather the new buzz words in
the industry- relevance, rigor
and relationships. He has fol-
lowed the top schools and
leaders in the industry in try-
ing to bring change to the way
our kids and grandkids are
taught.
He was one of more than
50 educators and administra-
tors from all over the country
- for that matter, from all
over the world who a
month ago attended a confer-
ence in Orlando on model
schools. It was incredible
hearing of those great experi-
ences in learning. You only
wish you could be in all the
sessions.
To show that there can be a
turn-around in what kids
learn, one great example was
the school in Falls Church,
Va., that up through the mid-
'90s had been a troubled
school, repeatedly getting
graded as a failing.
This school put in place a
dramatic plan in 1998. It
applied the three "R"s to the
full. The kids were expected to
dress right and were sent
home if they didn't. They were
pushed to their limit, yet the
teachers embraced each child
as part of the "relationship"
component.
They mentored each one
closely and fashioned plans
to fit their needs. Children
who got a "D" or "F" in the
first report period, from then
on were required to stay after
school two hours several
times a week.
Teachers were expected to
be their tutors.
By 2004 it became a top
school, and even was the one
that George Bush used as the
backdrop for his "No Child
Left Behind" program.
During Wilma.Hamilton's
time as superintendent,
Venice High began its Small
Learning Communities con-
cept that helped implement
the "relevance" and "relation-
ship" concepts by trying to


make schools within schools.
This program placed children
into programs that more
closely identified with their
personalities and strengths.
This program likely had a
lot to do with Venice High
improving its graduation rate
from 68 percent to,84 percent
in five years. The addition of
the Rotary Futures Program
helped also. Now students
will be asked to pick a prelim-
inary "major" coming out of
middle school.

the conference iinOrlaido of
interest to of those who want
to see an expansion of techni-
cal programs was one from
Yonkers, N.Y. This school in
many respects is a normal
high school in that students
get all of their learning in
school: their math and read-
ing and all core classes, in
addition to being placed in
one of three core technical or
vocational areas.
Within these core areas are
five specialties. While I don't
know the three core areas,
they might be Technical,
Health and Public Service,
and under those might be
nursing or EMT or IT, etc. This
school is so popular it has a
waiting list to get in.
Dr. Norris has as a part of
his NeXt Generation plan to
elevate technical training.
That has been the goal of
many superintendents who,
because of monetary con-
straints, could never pull it
off. I hope recent money
shortages and the need for
replacing old schools won't
cause that to happen once
again.
Norris' plan is threefold, as
he told the Venice Sertoma
Club. First is a massive
remodeling, improvement
arid expansion of SCTI, which
also has many closed classes.
Second, he wants there to be
offerings in each high school;
even starting this fall he
expects there to be two to
four. He then is planning with
Thomas Ranch and Sarah
Pappas at MCC a technical
school next to MCC that
would work hand in hand
with it.
Dr. Norris' vision is right on
as he embraces many of the
newest teaching methods. I
only hope his implementa-
tion isn't too much, too soon.
And, more important, I hope
he gets buy-in from the entire
staff, because he can't do it by
himself. He has failed in this
so far.
Where I may separate
myself from his direction is
the cost it is going to take to
get it done.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



The high cost of getting old


Editor:
For more than 25 years my wife and I have had our auto
insurance through the AARP insurance program that uses the
Hartford insurance Co. of the Midwest.
During this period of time, we have not made a single claim
and have had a safe driving record.
* We recently received our policy renewal. Much to my shock,
our premium on our two autos has increased from $1,276.92 to
$1,702. This represents an increase of exactly 33 1/3 percent.
I do not have a pension and we live on our Social Security.
The increased amount of $425.08 is almost staggering.
. I called up The Hartford's Customer Service and asked why
the large increase. After considerable time and checking, the
representative said it was due "to age." This floored me! My
wife will be 80 this month, and I will be 80 next February.
I think this is most unfair. Perhaps this is a way of getting
people to cancel their policies. By the way, both of our autos
have less than 100,000 miles and are used only for personal
use.
We are going to check other insurance companies and hope
to find one that doesn't discriminate due to age.

Bush is bad, but
Dems are worse
Editor:
Only a fool would believe
that George Bush is doing a
good job. But he certainly
can't be blamed for every-
thing, from global warming to
toenail fungus.
The true problem with
George is, he's the best we -
have. Call him all the names
you wish, but two years ago
we elected him to our highest
office. Why? Simply because
the opposition couldn't come
up with anyone better. Un-
fortunately, they still can't.
How does any party expect
to be taken seriously when it
spends so much time apolo-
gizing for the embarrassing
statements of its chosen


leader, Howard Dean? Until
this boisterous, myopic, band
of buffoons gathers some
inkling of credibility and di-
rection, I'll happily take
George.
Hopefully in two years the
Democrats can come up with
someone other than Al
"Chicken Little, the sky is
warming! The sky is warm-
ing!" Gore. Or Ichabod Crane
in a suit, John "I'm a Vietnam
vet. I'm a Vietnam vet" Kerry.
The last time the country
became sickened by a Re-
publican president we got
Jimmy Carter, forever re-
minding us that change is not
always a good thing.

Turnover?
What tumover?
Editor:
As a Venice Family YMCA
instructor who has been at
the YMCA for seven years, I
was taken by surprise when I
read Claude Lewis' article on
Sunday, July 30, "Michelle
Guy and her dream team."
\ Claude's opening state-
ment, "It's no secret that there
is a high turnover when it
comes to instructors working
at the Venice Family YMCA,"
surprised me. Some of my fel-
low instructors have worked
at theYMCA 10 years, 15 years
and 20 years or more..
We are truly loyal to the
YMCA and its members. Even
when a new health club
opened in Venice, there was
no mass exodus.
We are all looking forward
to working in our beautiful
new facility which will open
in 2007. We all know that the
YMCA will always be here.

Set an example
with girls who lied
Editor:
The two girls who "pre-
tended" a "drive-by shooter"
shot one of them should be
prosecuted to send a message
to other teens that the lie they
told was harmful to every one
of us who live in Englewood.
I always felt safe, walking
my dog at night until I read
that. I felt much better when
the truth came out that it was
a lie. I'm grateful to the police


for doing their job. Well done!

Pit bulls are
sharks on land
Editor:
In Kansas City pit bulls are
deemed illegal after a 71-
year-old person was killed.
This dog's long lineage go-
es back to antiquity. Greeks
and Romans used them as
war dogs, or for cruel enter-
tainment in the arena. In
England they became herders
of cattle.
No Shetland this dog, but a
violent method of attaching
its teeth and jaws to the cow's
nose. They are the preferred
protections by drug dealers,
and others whose activities
require violence.

terror for the unwary at any
age. Here in Florida, with all
our risks from water sharks,
alligators, giant pythons and
the tiny red ants, life is excit-
ing enough. We do not need
someone's pet killing you.
When, for example, a new
neighbor moves in with one
or two of these dogs, your life
is at risk. No amount of com-
plaint will help you and the
courts do nothing. The dog
lovers, of which I'm one, will
object, thinking their Yorkie is
the same as these monsters.
Google has lots of info on
this subject. They have le-
gions of defenders. Somehow,
it's a silent assault on the pub-
lic. I wonder what emergency
room records show regarding
these attacks. Some, however,
go unreported.

War has lost
majority support
Editor:
In reference to Mr. Nick
Catsakis' letter, "Iraq still had
the support of the majority," his
first erroneous assumption is
that congressional members
go out of their way to gauge


constituents' sentiment.
Mr. Catsakis refers to a 2003
"overwhelming approval" by
Congress of Mr. Bush's war.
This is, however, 2006, and
2,600 killed U.S. soldiers later,
18,000 U.S. soldiers injured'
later and more than 100,000
Iraqis people dead or injured
later. This 2003 vote is history
and when history is written it
will show a shameful host of
more than $1 trillion.
The second majority Mr.
Catsakis refers to is a 2006
vote not to pull out of Iraq.
There are 100 senators and
435 house representatives.
That is a total of 535 people
who, by any stretch of the
imagination, are not a major-
ity of the American people.
Test it out. Take a clipboard,


tablet and pen and stand in
front of any Publix store. Ask
each passerby, "Do you want
your children and your grand-
children to live in a peaceful,
nonviolent world or a world in
which your children and
grandchildren need to run and
duck the rockets red glare, the
bomb bursting in air?" Betcha
the majority of the Americans
will tell you they want a peace-
ful, secure, and safe environ-
ment for their children and'
grandchildren.
Supported by your own
survey, you will come to learn
that the majority of all
American citizens do not sup-
port the war in Iraq.

It is only appropriate

Golda and Larry Radefeld
brought in papers from their
trip out west: The Billings

Bud Buckley dropped off
the Carmel Pine Cone and
'Don Rank gave me the
Oscoda County Herald from
mid Michigan.
More interesting was the
one Dr. Chuck Savoca gave
me that his daughter had sent
from a recent trip. She-picked


up the Bemidji (Minn.) Pi-
oneer, I think in the airport.
The big story was about how
Congress had recognized
them for their contribution to
the curling team and the
United States' success in the

Mary Apostolu brought
me the Missoulian from
Missoula, Mont. Nice news-
paper with a couple of nice
ads.
One that we don't see often
was for gas stoves and
hearths. Nice, large pictures
made it attractive.

Florida Tax Watch put out
some interesting stats on the
tax burden of Florida resi-
dents.
The 'good news is we are.
still below the national aver-
age. Yet in 2000 we had-the
fifth-lowest tax burden and it
has grown to where now it is
the 12th-lowest in the coun-
try.
We are for the first time
since 1997 at 6 percent of our
income in taxes. In total taxes
in 2003 we were at 9.44 per-
cent, ranked 44th in the coun-
try. The state has had the


third-largest growth in tax
collections, which is likely
why we now have surpluses.
Maybe we can sock
enough away so we won't
have to raid trust funds like
when the last recession hit.

will, make sure I am in it.

Mutt meals. I'd like to address the doggie dining issue. I think
patrons should be allowed to bring their dogs as lohg as they're
in appropriate containers or what have you. I think more peo-
ple will be coming into your restaurant and providing more
business if they wouldn't have to leave their loving pets in the
car. My husband and I would really like to be able to take our
little dog with us. We have-a doggie stroller we always have
our dogs in a stroller but it would be wonderful to be able to
bring our dogs to the dining area.


Not so common. I'm talking
about comments attributed
to Kathy Dent in Monday's
Herald-Tribune. She said that
SAFE, Sarasota Alliance for
Fair Elections, deceived peo-
ple with the petition. Oh
come on. I read and signed
one, and it just makes sense to
have a verified vote. Then she
said she spent $5.2 million on
the new touch-screens and,
now she will have to spend $2
million to get optical scan-
ners. Why didn't she, like 52
Florida counties, do her
homework and go for the
scanners in the first place,
thereby saving Sarasota
County almost $3 million?
And, there would be a backup
paper trail and much less
maintenance cost. I signed
because it's just plain com-
mon sense. But as my grand-
mother always said, common
sense ain't so common.

think that the school superinn
tendent and the school board
members all lied to the vot-
ers?

to the caller's position that not
printing it. Clearly this bitter
attack is not from a general
reader but from someone
whose economic interests are
tied to the development and
who does not want Martin
causing the public to be
informed and think about the
issue. Perhaps Mr. Miller's
advocates might want to view
the film "Good Night and
Good Luck," about Edward R.
Murrow. They would find
McCarthyism. in 2006 is no
more attractive and effective


than it was 50 years ago.
Options needed. Just read
Roger Button's article about
Bonefish rethinking a Venice
location. A Bonefish Grill is
exactly what Venice needs.
The city should be fighting for
a few more places to go or eat
like this. Thousands of new
homes are being added to the
area, yet the fast food chains
are all we see right now. A per-
son can only go to the Crow's
Nest so many times before he
will take his money to
Sarasota for variety. It will
soon be season again. The
best we can hope for is stand-
ing in line at the same old
choices.
EDITOR'S NOTE: It's up to the
city to decide whether to take your
advice but, for clarity's sake, we
have to point out Bonefish's
potential location wasn't in the
city.

STAFF REPORT

City employees are already
prohibited from smoking in
the workplace. Next week city
council will consider extend-
ing the ban to city vehicles,
and putting employees under
a directive to "make every
effort to minimize the use of
tobacco when they are active-
ly engaged in dealing with the
public."
Council meets Tuesday at
1:30 p.m. in council chambers
at Venice City Hall, 401 W.
Venice Ave.
Florida has a general pro-
hibition on' smoking in the
workplace. City employees
who smoke must do so in an
authorized outdoor smoking
area during a scheduled
break.
The change to be consid-
ered would prohibit the use of
tobacco in any vehicle owned,
leased or rented by the city. It
would apply to cigars, pipes,
snuff and chewing tobacco as
well as cigarettes.
The meeting will be shown
on Comcast Channel 21
Wednesday, Aug. 9, and Sat-
urday, Aug. 12, at 9:30 a.m.

Back in the flag stand


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Russell Gillet's whole world
changed on the evening of
June 12.
Working second shift at
PGT, he collapsed and was
rushed to Venice Regional
.Medical Center. At first, those
tending to him thought he
had suffered a stroke. During
a CAT scan, Gillet had anoth-
er seizure.
The procedure revealed
the 44-year-old Punta Gorda
man had a brain tumor. It was
determined malignant and
doctors operated on June 28.
"It was a big shock," said
Russell's wife, Celeste. "He
went from three jobs to no
jobs in one day."
Besides working full-time
at PGT, Gillet also worked part
time for Badcock Furniture in
Punta Gorda and was a track.
official at Charlotte County
Speedway on Saturday nights.


Gillet has been with the
Punta Gorda stock car short
track since its infancy, acting
as starter, backstretch flag-
man and broom crew chief to
name a few duties.
"Russell has been a loyal
employee almost as long as
the speedway's been here,"
said Charlotte County Speed-
way owner-promoter LeRoy
Davidson. "He's always been
there for us. Now we're gonna
be there for him."
Recovery was at first pain-
fully slow, but Gillet is now up
and around. Amazingly, he
flagged a couple of races on
the night of July 29 at Char-
lotte County Speedway. Folks
were surprised to see how
resilient Gillet was.
Gillet wanted to flag before
his chemotherapy and radia-
tion treatments begin. They
no doubt will zap a lot of his
energy.
Gillet's cancer is a rare and
aggressive form. Celeste said


the average life expectancy is
from nine months to a year.
Some cases have gone on and
lived for years.
Russell expects to be part
of the latter crowd.
"He said he's going to
beat this," she said. "Right
now, we live each day to the
fullest. He's really looking
forward to getting out to the
track again."
The disease has taken a
financial toll on the Gillet
family.
"I've had to be with him
24/7," Celeste said. "That
means we've had no income
coming in."
That's where Davidson
helped out. He took a collec-
tion from the crowd to help
out Russell and Celeste.
Hopefully through will-
power, the power of modern
medicine and some help
from the man upstairs, Gillet
will be able to get out to the
speedway for years to come.


Quicksilver


Two former Venice High soft-
ball standouts helped the
Sarasota Quicksilver to an
unbeaten record in the NSA
18-and-under A Tournament
played last month in
Lakeland. Heather Laird and
Heather Boyts, who just grad-
uated from VHS and will be
playing softball in college,
made significant contribu-
tions to the Quicksilver effort.
Boyts was the winning pitch-
er in four games. She was
named tournament co-MVP
with catcher Candace Horton.
Laird pitched one win, played
outstanding in center field,
and belted the ball at a .400
clip. Front from left, Kellie

A week later, July 20, the
newspaper reported she rep-
resents Englewood area
investor Frank E. Goodrich,
who owns 40 acres of partial-
ly submerged land in the 429-
acre Lemon Bay Preserve that
is also on the county's priority
list for purchase.
'Not comfortable'
Environmentally sensitive
land acquisi-
tions are co-
ordinated by
The Nature
Conservancy,
a nonprofit
organization
employed by
the county as
a consultant.
Jim Ley is not Ley
directly in- L
volved in the
program, and said nothing
when the commission voted
3-1 to buy the Myakka River
parcel.


Later, Ley said he had dis-
cussed his wife's role as a real
estate agent in the Myakka
River property deal with
County Attorney Steve De-
Marsh and was assured it did
not present a conflict of inter-
est with his job because he
does not make recommenda-
tions on purchases.
DeMarsh confirmed that
Jim Ley had discussed
Tamara Ley's job with him.
"We were asked by Mr. Ley
to research the -matter," he
said, "and determined that no
legal, ethical or contractual
violation would occur as a
result of the transaction."
But Commission Chair
David Mills, who voted
against the Myakka River land
purchase, said he would not
support the deal when it
comes up for final approval.
"I've been getting phone
calls from people who are
pretty upset about this," he
said.
:- :'y.. :


cally thorny issue on Aug. 22,
when the board resumes
meetings, to maintain public
trust in a program that pro-
tects environmentally sensi-
tive land.
"I have never known any
administrator with the ability
to defuse public discourse
and insulate the county and
commissioners from unnec-
essarily difficult situations,"
Thaxton stated in an e-mail
letter to Ley. "It is one of your
strongest suits, but you
missed this one."
The jab is a direct reference
to the fact that Ley's wife,
Tamara, is a real estate agent
who represents the owners of
at least two sites the county
wants to buy. She recently
negotiated a $3 million sales
contract that could convey
100 acres along the Myakka
River to the county.
July 13, the Pelican Press
reported that Tamara Ley a
sales agent for Capital
Properties and Services Inc.
- represents Myakka Pro-
perties Inc. in the deal, and is
in line to receive a commis-
sion if the county commis-
sion gives final approval to
the purchase.

"It does not look good, and
it does not feel good," he said.
"While it may be perfectly
legal, I don't feel it is morally
right. Now it appears she
(Tamara Ley) is full speed
ahead on another one of
these purchases. As a com-
missioner, I'm just not com-
fortable with it."
Advantage?
Thaxton, who is a licensed
real estate agent, stated in his
e-mail letter to Ley there is
public concern about the
issue.
"I have re-
cently been
contacted by
two Realtors
who felt Ta-
mara's rela-
tionship to
the county'
Mills gave her an
unfair/advan-
tage over!
other brokers," he wrote.' ,


"I am concerned that the
results of this series of events
will undermine the public's
trust in the environmental
lands program," he contin-
ued. "We both know the im-
portance of public percep-
tion. Trust is by far our most
valuable relationship with the
public."
The county appointed a
citizens group to help orga-
nize an environmentally sen-
sitive lands acquisition pro-
gram in 1992. Voters ap-
proved a 0.25 mill property
tax and the sale of $53 million
worth of bonds in 1999 to
help pay for purchases.
When the program began
to run out of money, voters
again demonstrated their
support last year when they
overwhelmingly endorsed
the sale, of up to $250 million
worth of additional bonds.
Some of the money will be
used for public park land pur-
chases.

When a house becomes a home


Story and photos by Courtney Linn Staff Writer

At the heart of Venice, there is a house that is
a haven to all who set foot inside.


One in five people has a
diagnosed mental illness.
Often those people feel
alienated from society, crip-
pled to the point where they
feel like they don't belong
anywhere.
In Venice, Beacon House
gives such people a place
where they can belong and
feel good about themselves.
Beacon House is part of
Mental Health Community
Centers, an organization that
has been around for more
than 40 years. Assisting more
than 200 members, the cen-
ters offer options for people
with mental illnesses who still
want to be active members of
society and feel as though
they are a part of a group.
Beacon House, established in
1992, is a place where people
with a mental illnesses can
get together.
I took a tour of Beacon
House recently, experiencing
its home-like atmosphere
from the minute I arrived,
and was welcomed with open
arms by Beacon House mem-
bers. Even though they did
not know my name or affilia-
tion, they accepted me aim in-
ly, inviting me into the
kitchen for a spirited game of
Uno.

'When I am not here
(Beacon House) I sit on
the couch and do noth-
ing."
Linda Richardson,
Beacon House client


While my host, Carolyn
Eagen, executive director of
Mental Health Community
Centers, took a quick phone
call, I had a chance to interact
with some of the members,
including Mizlin Robinson,
Bob Turner, Bill Colprit, Nic-
oleta Iova and Robert Mac-


Donald.
Robinson loves to play
Uno. She is quite competitive
and seemed anxious for me
to stop asking questions in
order for her to concentrate
on her game.. Robinson was
confident that she would win.
She comes to Beacon House
four days week and stays until
it closes at 5 p.m. Other mem-
bers go four to five days, aweekl
Most also stay all day, making
Beacon House a large part of
their day.
Beacon House has many
programs available to mem-
bers. I asked the members
engaged in Robinson's Uno
game what they liked best.

TO BE A MEMBER
To be a member of Beacon
House, you should have a
diagnosed mental illness,
actively take prescribed med-
ication and have a willingness
to participate in its programs
and treat people with respect.
Most Beacon House services
are free to its members.
However, it does ask mem-
bers to donate $1 toward
lunch, if able to do so.
Occasionally extra money is
needed for special outings.

MacDonald said he likes it
when the group goes bowling
and when they play charades.
Turner said he likes to watch
movies and do arts and crafts.
Many of the members enjoy
the creative writing group.
Eagen, finished with her
phone call, retrieved me to
take a tour of the facility.

MORE INFORMATION
Beacon House is located at
1680 South Tamiami Trail,
Unit C, Venice. Call 496-4934
for more information. Mental
Health Community Centers
has four drop-in centers avail-
able in the surrounding area.


The members said they
would catch up with me later.
What's inside
Walking around the facili-
ty, it looked more like a house
than a community center.
According to Eagen, that is
her goal.,
One room serves as a com-
puter room, where members
can learn how to use comput-
ers or.just surf the Internet:
Another room looks just like a
. living room, where members
can comfortably sit and inter-
act or simply watch TV Next
to the living area is a laundry
room where Eagen allows
members to catch up on their
laundry. Outside on the patio
one member gave another a
manicure. Surrounding the
patio is the garden, an ongo-
ing project, which everyone
helps maintain.
Toward the back of the
facility is the arts and crafts
area. Works in progress and
finished items line the walls
of the room. Eagen showed
me some of her favorites:
pencil cup holders made
from ceramic mugs and post-
age stamps, which she keeps
on her desk. Also on the walls
are framed puzzles members
have completed. No one has
the heart to break them up.
Buzzing with activity was
the the room that seemed like
the heart of the whole house:
the kitchen. Eagen said that
the kitchen was recently re-
modeled, funded by dona-
tions. Inside the kitchen,
Linda Richardson and Angie
Costell, the kitchen coordina-
tor, were preparing lunch.
The food Beacon House
serves is donated byAll Faith's
Food Bank.
Richardson, a five-year
member, is a prime example
of the goal of Beacon House
to help people become self-
sufficient. Since joining Bea-
con House, she began help-
ing to cook meals there, has
gotten her own place to live
with Eagen's help and has
gone back to school. Rich-
ardson said she is looking for-
ward and taking steps to
going to culinary school.
"When I am not here (Bea-


con House) I sit on the couch
and do nothing," Richardson
said.
Eagen said that when
Richardson first came to Bea-
con House, she couldn't even
look anyone in the eye. Now,
she is a vibrant, active and
essential part of her commu-,

nity.

members for that reason.

Stuffed full of hope


BY KELEIGH KNABEL
GONDOLIER SUN INTERN


The Loveland Center Stuff-
ed Animal Auction didn't
bring only happiness for the
students. This fundraiser
.brought in $100, the begin-
ning of a $50,000 challenge
Sby George Cooper.
The Aktion Club decided
,'to hold this fundraiser after
George Cooper challenged
the school and the Venice
Little Theatre to raise $50,000
for the Loveland Follies.
"I fell in love with Love-
land and the accomplish-
'ments of the Follies," Cooper
said.
If they can raise $50,000,
Cooper will match that mon-
ey and make a donation to
the Loveland Follies.
The Aktion Club is part
of Kiwanis Community Sei-v-


ice. They participate in
Adopt-A-Park and also help
with supplies for a mobile
surgical unit in Iraq.
Their fundraisers usually
involve functions like hot
lunches, soda machines,
books and volunteer work,
but this fundraiser was dif-
ferent.
The stuffed animals were
donated by 20 people. Stu-
dents could buy three tickets
for $1, and tickets were se-
lected at random from a
basket.
Winners could take their
pick of any stuffed animal
in the bunch. Every student
went home with at least one
stuffed animal, and some
lucky students got to pick
again before they ran out of
prizes.
After the auction, the stu-
dents and volunteers stuffed


themselves at a pizza lunch
while chattering about their
newly acquired stuffed
friends.
The Aktion Club plans to
put on many more fundrais-
ers, but is also accepting
donations. They are being
sponsored by the Venice
Noon Club and the North
Port Early Birds..
Helping hands
George Cooper learned
about Loveland while
working at The Green But-
terfly Thrift Store 12 years
ago. The Green Butterfl\
helps support Lovela nd
Center.
He feels the Follies is a
great opportunity for 'the
students.
"It gives them a purpose,"
Cooper said, "Follies gives
them a tool to live life to the
fullest."
After the auction, Cooper
gave a speech that was


Students from Loveland Center eagerly await the next ticket number to be called.


greeted with much applause
and appreciation.
The school plans on
working closely with the,
Venice Little Theatre and.
asking the community to sup-
port this cause. They,
also plan on making pres-,


entations to community
groups and having dinner
in people's homes to en-
courage support.
The Loveland Center peo-
ple pride themselves on
being people helping them-
selves. They feel this is


Loveland giving back to the
community.
If you wish to make a
donation to Loveland Cen-
ter toward its $50,000 goal,.
checks are payable to the
Venice Little Theatre, atten-
tion Paul Borgmann.

Too soon to celebrate success for manatees


BY PATRICK ROSE
GUEST COLUMNIST
The state of Florida
recently bowed to political
pressures to redefine the
World Conservation Union's
(IUCN) criteria for endan-
gered species, calling them
"Threatened" instead of
"Endangered." Patrick Rose
advises the public should
not to be misled into think-
ing the endangered mana-
tees' future is secure.
Although the manatee is
still listed as Endangered at
the federal level and is recom-
mended for Endangered sta-


tus at the international level,
the state's plan to downlist
manatees prematurely 6ould
have grave future conse-
quences for the, manatee
population since most pro-
tections for manatees are im-
plemented at the state level.
Even though the Florida
Fish & Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) insists
protection for Florida's official
state marine mammal won't
change, a review of Florida law
shows Endangered species
receive more protection than
Threatened species. The com-
mission claims the manage-
ment plan they'll devise will

Those
who exercise
or play a sport regularly should
invest in properly fitting shoes
that are designed for the activity.
Feet that are imbalanced in any way
comprorruse the structural integrity of
the underlying skeleton. Begin your
search for proper footwear by considering,
if you have flattened arches. If you do, you
probably overpronate, which means your
feet are overly flexible and roll inward as
you walk or run. If you have high arches,
you are likely to undeipronate (supinate),
which means your feet are stiffer and roll
outward more, causing poor shock
absorption. Ovelpronators should look for
shoes with straight lasts (the solid form
around which a shoe is molded), while
supinators should choose shoes with curved
lasts. Others may only find relief from
custom made orthotics.

P.S. Have the chiropractor check for
leg-length discrepancy, which can
affect the stresses that walking and
running exert on your entire body.

Five questions cancer patients need to know


-STAFF REPORT


An estimated 10 million
Americans alive today have
faced a cancer diagnosis.
Fortunately, advances in can-
cer care and treatment have
dramatically improved sur-
vival rates and overall quality
of life. That improvement is
largely due to patients who
are taking an active role in
their cancer treatment. The
next step is to find out how
to maintain a health' life-
stile iand properly care for
o tur entire body.
"Man\ patients focus on
questions about their cancer
treatment, so. they often'
don't think about other facets
of their disease," said Dr. G.
David Roodman, director of
Myeloma Program, Univers-
ity of Pittsburgh Cancer In-
stitute and director of Bone
Biology Center, University of
Pittsburgh Medical Center.
"One important considera-
tion that is often overlooked
is the impact of cancer on the
bone, which may lead to frac-
tures and can be debilitating."
When faced with cancer, it

V.
,.. -


:is important to remember
,that no question is inappro-
priate. Here are five questions
cancer patients may not
know to ask their oncologist:
Will cancer and its treat-
ment affect other parts of
mybody?
Several of the most com-
mon types of cancer (for ex-
ample, breast, lung, prostate,
kidney) can spread from the
original tumor site to invade
the bone, a process known
as bone metastasis. Multiple
myeloma, a cancer of the
plasma cell, can also pro-
gress to the bone. It is im-
portant that you visit your
oncologist to conduct a full
medical examination to de-
termine if your cancer has
metastasized and learn how
you can take action to pro-
tect your bones.
Should I be concerned
about other medical condi-
tions, such as diabetes or
heart disease, and their
impact on cancer?
Preexisting medical con-
ditions put you at higher, risk
for developing complications'
throughout your cancer treat-

It is extremely important

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell, '
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. Every time I open the
paper I see advertisement
for digital hearing aids at
very low prices. When I
asked my Audiologist
about this, she said those ,
digital hearing aids do not.
have computers in them.
Help, I'm confused.
A. Confusing you is exactly
what those advertisements -
hope to do. "Real" digital
hearing aids contain
sophisticated computers
which process sound
moment to moment. These
tiny computers change the
amplification in reaction to
changes in the environment
of the listener. The are able
to perform hundreds of
computations per second
and provide clear, high
fidelity sound to the listener
at all times. It is these types
of instruments people think
of when they hear the term
"digital hearing aid." Some
manufacturers, however,
have chosen to remove the
computers from their
hearing aids while still
keeping the "digital" label.
These instruments do not do
any moment-to-moment
signal processing and
cannot be reprogrammed in
the future. Because these
instruments do not contain
computers, their
performance is limited and
their prices are low. The
advertisers you mentioned
are hoping you notice the
low price and won't notice
the difference between
"their" digital hearing aids
and "real" ones. In order to
learn more about the
benefits of various hearing
aid technologies and which
ones would work best for
you, call the Audiologist at

DICK HARRISON
CORRESPONDENT


We metVirgil not long after
we purchased our first home
on a quiet suburban street of
small ranch houses and tall
pin oaks. Open space about
as wide as two spades laid
end to end separated, the
houses, but the back yards
were huge.
At least it seemed so to a
couple of early 20-something,
first-time homeowners for
whom a big back yard was an
irresistible selling point.
My wife's former back yard
was paved and the front stoop
looked out on railroad tracks,


a grain elevator and cobble-
stone street across from the
block of 100-plus year-old-
houses.
My family, too, lived in one
of the row houses that made
Baltimore, Md., a city of
homeowners where the De-
pression-eraAmerican dream
was 12-feet to 18-feet wide
and about 80-feet deep,
including front and back-
yards.
After the kids moved out
and no one was around to
take the push mower out of
the basement, Mother cut the
grass in the front yard with
her sewing scissors. Behind
the house there was just

enough room for a honey-
suckle covered fence and a
small badminton court,
which it became after Dad
gave up his victory garden fol-
lowing the mistake of having
it top dressed with a load of
fresh pig manure.
The neighborhood kids
forgave us as soon as we put
up the net and their parents
breathed a sigh of relief.

SENIOR SCENE


Driver's ed for the young and old


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
COLUMNIST


So, you are 88 years old and
you still think you are a capa-
ble driver ... OK! maybe. This
is a very touchy subject and I
had better handle it with kid
gloves or my older friends will
not be very happy with me.
Most local Floridians
blame the snowbirds for our
traffic problems. The truth is
that we have problems all
year-round, which proves
that we can't just blame the


snowbirds. (That is my col-
laborator talking she is
young and smart and she
knows about these things, I
don't.)
She describes turning onto
U.S. 41 northbound at Alli-
gator Drive, fixing to go to the
airport ... there is traffic piled
up behind her, so she stays in
the left lane, driving the speed
limit, knowing that she is
turning onto 41 to the island.
Behind her, Irate Irene is fum-
ing to get around her. At the
intersection, she turns left
and stays in the left lane
again. Irene is really toasted
now. As the driver of another
car, you don't know what the
other guy has planned nor
does he of your plans, so why
not stay a little calmer, my
wise friend asks. Every older
driver I know thinks he or she
is a perfectly safe driver but
other people are not, and it is
the other person who is dan-


gerous.
My son tells me that many
years ago, when he was riding
a bicycle before he started
driving, he was daring and
fearless. He knew how to con-,
trol that bicycle, and could
dart in and out of traffic with
great dexterity. Only when he
started driving did he realize
that cars and drivers did not
have the same dexterity, and
how frightening it was to see
someone else do that when
was now the one driving a car.
Years later my grandson
told my son that his friend,
who had had his license for a
week, was already a better
driver than his mother. My
son's response was to talk
about the two key aspects of
driving hand-eye coordi-
nation and the wisdom and
experience to know how to
react. My son explained it was

Guard your identity


JIM MILLER
SAVVY SENIOR


Dear Savvy Senior,
With all the recent news
about the identity theft of our
U.S. veterans, it got me thinking
about my own identity safety.
What I can do to better protect
myself? --Unidentified Senior
Dear Unidentified,
The U.S. Department of
Veterans Affairs "identity
theft" scandal last month was
another stark reminder of
how vulnerable we all are to
this huge problem. Identity
theft affects more than 10
million Americans every year
- many of whom are
seniors. While there's no i4on-
clad protection against ID
theft, and with many factors
beyond your control, there
are some things you can do
to minimize your risks. Here's
what you should know.
Protect yourself
Identity theft occurs when
someone obtains access to.
your Social Security number
(SSN), bank or credit card
account number, or other
identifying information and
uses it to steal from you. Here
are some tips to help you


protect yourself:
Review your monthly
bank and credit card state-
ments carefully for fraudu-
lent activity and request a
copy of your credit report
every year and check it for
errors. To get your free annu-
al report, call (877) 322-8228,
or visit annualcreditreport
.com.
Don't give out your SSN
or financial information over
the telephone, in person or
over the Internet unless you
initiated the contact.
Make sure your SSN is
not on anything that doesn't
require it, like your checks or
driver license.
Try to add passwords to
all your financial accounts,
so that anyone who calls
needs more than your name,
address and SSN to imper-
sonate you.
If you use the Internet,
delete without replying to
any suspicious e-mail
requests.
Buy a paper shredder
and shred all records, state-
ments, mail solicitations or
other papers you throw out
that have your financial or
personal information.
Secure your mail. Empty
your mailbox quickly, or get a
locked mailbox or PO. box.
Don't carry your Social
Security card or any other
card that has your ID num-
ber including your Medicare
card. Instead, carry a photo-
copy of the front and back of
the card and black out your
SSN.
Take your name off mar-
keting lists. You can cut down


the junk mail and e-mail you
receive at dmaconsumers
.org. To stop telemarketers,
call the National Do Not Call
Registry at (888) 382-1222 or
visit donotcall.gov. And, to
opt out of future credit card
solicitations visit optoutpre
screen.com, or call the credit
reporting industry (888) 567-
8688 (they will ask for your
SSN).
Freeze your credit files.
In 17 states you can stop ID
theft by putting a freeze on
your credit files so no one
can open new lines of credit
in your name. For more
information or to find out
which states offer this ser-
vice, visit idtheftcenter.org/
vgl24.shtml.
A credit monitoring ser-
vice is another way to keep a
close eye on your credit
report. The three credit
bureaus offer this service for
around $10 to $15 per
month.
Take action
If you suspect you've
become a victim of identity
theft there are several steps
you. can take to help protect
yourself, but act quickly.
Contact the fraud
department of one of the
three major credit bureaus
(Equifax (800) 525-6285,
Experian (888) 397-3742 or
Trans Union (800) 680-7289)
and place a "fraud alert" on
your credit file. The alert lasts
90 days. As soon as the credit
bureau confirms your fraud
alert, the other two credit

Brookly museum
offers graffiti exhibit
Some people's vandalism
is other people's art. The
Brooklyn Museum will dem-
onstrate the point with its
"Graffiti" exhibition through
Sept. 3.
It explores how a genre
that began as a form of sub-
versive public communica-
tion has become legitimate
in some areas. Graffiti is
moving away from the street
and into private collections
and galleries.
The exhibition of 20 large-
scale works includes such
influential artists as Michael
Tracy ("Tracy 168"), Melvin
Samuels Jr. ("NOC 167"),
Sandra Fabara ("Lady Pink"),
Chris Ellis ("Daze"), and John
Matos ("Crash").
One of the first art dealers
to collect graffiti was Sidney


Janis. His heirs donated al-
most 50 works from his estate
to the Brooklyn Museum in
1999. Visit: brooklynmuse-
um.org.
'Offbeat Illinois'
now available
A popular advertising
campaign, "Offbeat Illinois,"
has prompted a new exclu-
sive line of merchandise.
Launched throughout
Chicago in the fall of 2005,
the advertisements are mod-
eled after colorful travel
posters from the 1920s and
highlight quirky travel desti-
nations unique to Illinois,
from the World's Largest
Catsup Bottle to Bessy, the
400-pound butter cow.
When the ads were plas-
tered on train platforms, bus
shelters and billboards and
on special postcards found
in select restaurants, con-
sumers inundated the Illinois
Department of Commerce
and Economic Opportunity,
Bureau of Tourism with
requests to obtain the


posters. Items now available
are T-shirts, magnets, coast-
ers, journals and baby
bibs.

Today is a very good day.
No matter what already
happened before or what's
going to happen to you later,
today is a very good day.
That's because you grab-


bed this newspaper just now,
turned to the obituaries, and
you didn't see your name
there.
Other people don't quite
make it that far, and their life
story is briefly told in a news-
paper just like this one. Some
of those obituaries are dead-


ly-dull. Others are created
with flair, and in her new
book "The Dead Beat," Mar-
ilyn Johnson writes about
those columns and the folks
who created them.
The basic obituary says
just about the same thing: the
deceased's date. of birth, the


date of death, the survivors'
names, and the place of bur-
ial. Sure, you might get a few
snippets of further informa-
tion, but nothing that makes
you want to read further
unless you knew the person

When you kill a frog,


does it really croak?


& JA

COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER


My name is Courtney, and
I am a frog murderer. Well,
actually, I never intended to
kill any frogs, but one day, it
happened, and I felt as low as
I could have ever.felt. How-
ever, I firmly believe that the
frogs summoned the powers
that be in order for me to be
punished for my crime. This
is my story.
I was living in a remodeled
single-car garage apartment.
Outside the door was my
garbage can, and next to the
garbage can lived a frog fami-
ly that I was delighted to have
living next to me because it
made it feel more like a home
to have a family, of sorts, liv-
ing so close by. There was a
Mama frog, a Papa frog and a
Baby frog. They were all so
cute. I got to the point Where I
would say "Hello"and "Good-
bye" to my beloved frog fami-
ly every day.
When it was garbage day, I
always made sure that I
would shake the can in the
hopes that if one of the frog
family members was inside, it
would leave to rejoin its fami-
ly. I always feared that one
day, a member of the frog
family would become dis-
placed and taken away to
some horrible landfill far, far
from home.
My relationship with the
frog family lasted for months.
I almost felt as though I was a
part of the frog family itself.
It was, unfortunately, the
great care I took in keeping
the frog family together that


brought about their demise.
One day, trash day, I began
my normal routine. I said
"Good morning" to the fami-
ly, and proceeded to shake
the garbage can. What I did
not do was see that the baby
frogwas on the side of the can
next to the wall. It was a les-
son on how delicate life can i
be. I had smashed the poor :
Baby frog against the wall of
my apartment.
The mother and father
frogs must have been horri-
fied because they quickly
hopped away with terror in
their eyes.
I felt terrible. I could barely
function. I was now and for-
ever a frog murderer. I sank
into a depression and felt
nothing but despair for my
friends. I had killed one of
Kermit the Frog's kids.
A couple ofl months later,
daily life having continued .
on, I never forgot my friends. I
checked habitually to see if
they decided to move back, -
but to no avail.
One day, I was driving to a
friend's house, and having no
air conditioning in my truck
- a story for another time -..
I had both windows down to
let some air inside. I was
going 40 mph, watching the
road, when I heard a terrible
thud. I swerved across three _-
lanes, terrified and trying to
get control of my truck.
I thought, at first, that I had
gotten a flat tire. No, my truck
was handling fine.. Perhaps
there was something wrong
with my clutch. Nope. Still Z
running-well.
I finally came to the con-
clusion that something had
entered my vehicle. I'
searched around for fallen
plant life, but to no avail.
Finally, what had entered my
vehicle showed itself. On my
dashboard was a gigantic
frog. This frog was the size of
both of my hands put togeth-
er. It sat, fearless, looking me

Commander Coert Voorhees;
2nd Vice Commander Nick

who passed.
Obituaries like those,
Johnson indicates, will bore
you to death. The good
columns, the ones worth
reading, are those that give
you details about someone's
life. For instance, it's nice to
know who the survivors are,
but wouldn't it be a whole lot
more entertaining to learn
that the deceased was a pro-
fessional whistler who fought
for Hitler's army and later had
a sex change operation?
When a celebrity dies and
you want to know more about
him or her, you can easily find
enough information to bury
you 6 feet under. But what
about the "common folk?"
After you're gone, will anyone
care that you once stood on
your head for two hours or
that you collected cookie jars?
Those kinds of ordinary
nuggets are exactly what
make obituaries interesting.
Johnson spoke with many
obit writers around the world
who say that immortalizing
everyday people is a dream
job, and that the best obits
aren't those written about the
recently-deceased rich and
famous. The best obits are
about someone you knew or
someone you wish you'd
known.
Or someone who harbors
skeletons in a closet.
"The Dead Beat" is a book
that proves that if something
exists, someone's going to
write about it or, in this

Who knew that there is a con-
vention for obit writers and
readers? Who knew that there
is an online chat group entire-
ly devoted to cult-like enjoy-
ment of expertly-written obit-
uaries? Who'd have thought
that, among larger papers in
larger cities, obituary sections


can be so darn competitive?
Thankfully, author Marilyn
Johnson doesn't merely write
about the columns or the
writers themselves. She also
includes many, many exam-
ples of the obits that so capti-
vate her. I nearly died laugh-
ing at some of the obituaries
included in this book, and
others made me utter the
words that Johnson says are
music to an obit writer's ears:
"Wow. I wish I'd known that
person."
If your reading time is stiff
and lifeless, "The Dead Beat"
is a book you just can't pass
on. Look for a copy today and
bury yourself in some fasci-
natingly macabre fun.

Senior dental care options
Dear Savvy Senior,
Do you have any suggestions
on how seniors can get afford-
able or discounted dental care?
I had family dental insurance
through my work for many
years but lost it when I retired.
What can you tell me? -
Toothless Tom
Dear Tom,
Taking care of your mouth


DEUPREE fomPage7B


very possible for a young per-
son to have better hand-eye
coordination, but impossible
to have better wisdom with
one week's experience. Four
days later his friend was in a
solo accident because he hit a
patch of ice and did not know
how to react. My son got one
of those very rare "Dad, you
were right" comments from a
teenager.
So, you are an older driver
and you are driving in the left
lane for the very same reason
and a younger driver is
behind you thinking you
don't know any better, right? If
there were a complex situa-
tion, are your muscles, reflex-
es, agile enough to respond in
time to avert an accident? I
dunno! It seems to me it takes
two to tango when it comes to
avoiding accidents. Like my
son and his bicycle, it is what
you do and what the other
person does. In the best of sit-
uations we are in control of
only one of those and if our
own capabilities diminish, we
are in control of neither.
I know of a lady who was
very short. She had one bad
eye (and couldn't see out of
.the other!). She couldn't see
the dashboard, yet she was
about 90. She had a bad left
foot and I shuddered every
time I thought of her driving. I
dunno!


There are advantages to
being blind, though: I have no
idea how many close calls I
have been involved with for
the last 10 years.
It always astounds me
when I find I have sick friends
who are obviously not going
to live long and yet receive a
renewed six-year license by
mail, simply because they
have not had any moving vio-
lations. You Michiganders, at
least, have to answer perti-
nent medical questions and
take an eye test every eight
years. My friend, Rick Santer
in Big Rapids, topk time out
from his busy schedule to
help out on that fact.
I've always had a theory on
why under-60s drive so fast
down here in Florida. It is
probably to get ahead of all
we old geezers holding up
traffic ahead of them. In a
crypt in Rome is a sign that
says "What you are, we were.
What we are, you will be-
come." Think about it the
next time you are in a rush to
get somewhere.

Virginia Deupree is 93,
and almost blind. She is a
graduate of Indiana
University, noted for its
School oflournalism.
Virginia was a city editor and
a columnist for many years,
and now resides in Venice.


these days can take a big bite
out of your budget. While
there's no one simple solu-
tion to affordable dental care
there are some different
options and resources that
can help. Here's what you
should know.
I
Dental discounts
Since most Americans lose
their dental insurance bene-
fits when they retire, the
majority of people older' than
65 pay out-of-pocket every
time they visit a dentist.
Adding to the problem is that
Medicare doesn't cover rou-
tine dental care and more
than 80 percent of older
Americans don't have private
dental insurance. Yet older
adults need dental care more
than any other age group. So
what's a person with no den-
tal insurance do? Here are
some tips to consider:
Ask for a discount. If you
pay for dental care (out-of-
pocket) up front, you're sav-
ing your dentist office the
cost and hassle of filing an
insurance claim, so it's not
unreasonable to ask for a 10


percent discount..
Join a dental discount
plan. Not to be confused
with dental insurance, a den-
tal discount plan can be a
cost-effective option that can
reduce your dental care
expenses. How it works is
you pay an annual member-
ship fee (around $100 for an
individual and $150 for fami-
ly) in exchange for discount-
ed prices from the plan's par-
ticipating dentists. Typical
savings range between 20
and 30 percent, though it can
be higher depending on the
procedure. To find a rep-
utable discount plan, visit
dentalplans.com (or call 888-
632-5353) where you can
search for plans and partici-
pating dentists by zip code,
as well as get a breakdown of
the discounts offered.
Dental care resources
If you're strapped for cash
there are various resources
that provide dental care to_
seniors at a reduced rate or
for free. Here are some to
look into:
Dental schools: Most


dental schools have clinics
that allow dental students to
gain experience treating
patients while at the same
time offering care at a
reduced cost. Contact the
dental school in your area to
see what's available. See the
American Dental Education
Association Web site
(adea.org/links) for a list of
links to all U.S. dental
schools.
Local services: There are
a few states, as well as vari-
ous local organizations and
clinics that offer discounted
dental care to seniors with
limited income. Services will
vary by community. To find
out what's available in your
area contact your state den-
tal association, local dental
society (see
\ada.org/ada/organizations
for contact information), or
your Area Agency on Aging.
To get your local aging
agency number call (800)
677-1116.
Bureau of Primary
Health Care: A sector of the
Health Resources and
Services Administration, they


provide federally funded
community health centers
nationwide many of
which provide discounted or
free dental care to people
based on financial need. To
find a health center near you
visit ask.hrsa.gov/pc or call
(888) 275-4772.
Donated Dental Services:
A nationwide service created
by the National Foundation
of Dentistry for the
Handicapped that provides
free dental care for elderly
and disabled people who
can't afford to pay. To learn
more or to. apply for care in
your state, visit
nfdh.org/DDS.html or call
(303) 534-5360. (Note: that
most states have long waiting
lists and some are not cur-
rently accepting applica-
tions).

Some members have admin-
istrative duties, such as an-
swering the phone and
scheduling events. MacDon-
ald answers the phones regu-
larly. Others, like Richardson,
help with cooking. Some help
with cleaning. Eagen relies on
the members to handle much
of the renovation and mainte-
nance of the facility, as many
are capable to do any number
of services. One of the mem-
bers redid the floors of
Beacon House with materials
provided by a donor.
Sometimes, having a per-
son or group -of people
around who understand what
you're going through is a mir-
acle in and of itself. That is
another form of support
Beacon House provides.
My tour was complete, and
it was time to speak with
some more members.
"It would be nice if you
would join us for lunch," one
of them asked me.
Howcould I refuse? These
people accepted me at face
value, and they actuallywant-
ed me to join them. I was
happy t stay.
As I sat down for my meal,
I ran into Robinson again. She
told me that she was success-
ful in her Uno game, as
always. Richards brought me
the food she and Costell spent
a portion of the morning
cooking for everyone.
During lunch, Eagen ate
with the members and sang
to the oldies station that
played in the background,
encouraging other members
to join in.
Courtesy and hospitality
Eagen seems to have in-
stilled a form of magic among
her members. I noticed an
unusual amount of courtesy
and respect, often lacking in a
lot of places.
"This is like their house,
and they are proud of it,"


Eagen said. "Think of yourself
as a guest in their house."
' Just as two members cook
all the meals, two members
volunteer to clean up. Eagen's
system seems to work just
fine, especially since I had
barely finished my food when
a member asked if he could,
clear my plate for me.
Eagen was initially the
director of development for
Beacon House and advanced
to director. Now, she manages
all of the community centers
in the surrounding areas. She
has been with Mental Health
Community Centers in one
form or another for nine
years. Eagen was proud of
winning nonprofit business
of the year for the city of
Venice. She could hardly con-
tain her enthusiasm.
Beacon House relies heavi-
ly on outside support. While
the project is partially funded'
by the United Way, Eagen and
her team always seek help in
any way they can. Area busi-
nesses and citizens have
shown an interest in helping
Beacon House. All of the fur-
niture and arts and crafts sup-
plies are donated.
"There is often a stigma
with mental illness," Eagen
said. "It is very misunder-
stood."
Eagen added that people
with mental illnesses are
often seen as socially unac-
ceptable. This does not hap-
pen at Beacon House. Every-
one is accepted. Beacon
House is a place where people
whose lives may have been
disrupted by mental illness
can feel safe. It is where they
can get their lives back to-

Since becoming owner of a
pair of swans I've taken to
calling myself a Swanherd. It
has a nice ring and, technical-
ly, it isn't a lie. Watching David
and Bathsheba gliding majes-
tically across the pond is a
pleasure. Now, as teenagers in
swan terms, they've begun to
experiment with what inter-
ests teenagers most. God's
injunction to "go forth and
multiply" appears to be on
their minds. The probability
my flock of swans will
increase has fueled aspira-
tions to visit England, where
swans are Royal birds.
Being a Swanherd hasn't
changed the junk mail I
receive. My mailbox is
crammed with offers for cred-
it cards, which I'm assured
will change the way I live and
the respect I'll receive. I'm
always pre-approved for a
credit line that would stagger
the Royal Exchequer.
The more I watched those
swans, the more the itch to
travel wanted to be scratched.
One day, as I sorted through
the mail, the connection
finally hit. I selected a likely
looking card offer and filled
out the application. Under
"occupation" I wrote: "Swan-
herd." Under "annual in-
come" I entered: "Fifteen
swans." To put the bankers'
minds at ease, I enclosed a
cover letter:

"Gentlemen:
"I can't express how
pleased I am to learn I've
been pre-approved for your
platinum card with such a
generous credit limit. Your
offer is very nearly an answer
to a prayer and I believe it
will be a great help to me in
advancing professionally as a
Swanherd.
"Although you asked only


that I complete the short
application, I feel I should
provide a bit more detail.
Despite the antiquity of the
trade, not everyone is famil-
iar with Swanherding. As
patron, so to speak, you
deserve to know how I plan
to use the funds your card
will provide.


"In England all swans not
privately owned are property
of the Crown. Even today
there is a Royal Swan Keeper
as well as a yearly "swan-
upping," in which cygnets
from the spring hatch are


caught and given their cig-
inota, or mark. The
Worshipful Company of
Vintners and the Worshipful
Company of Dyers own
swans under Royal charters
given in the 1400s and to this:
day their Swan Masters take
part in the upping. As you
can readily see, there are


to become this country's first
ever Swan Master. To accom-
plish this it will be imperative
to fly to England for the
swan-upping and entertain
the Royal Swan Keeper and
significant others at a ban-
quet. That, as well as travel
and lodging, is where your
bank's platinum card will


great opportunities in play a crucial role. With the
Swanherding. prestige your card will pro-
"It is my aspiration, with vide, I shall return with their
your help, to elevate the pro- blessings and recommenda-
fession of Swanherd to com- tions, ready to accomplish
parable heights in this coun- the second part of my plan.
try and by careful planning "Thanks to our ex-presi-


dent's wife, now senator, we
are all aware how profitable
commodity trading can be.
Here in the United States,
unmarked swans are an
unrecognized commodity
belonging to no one in par-
ticular. With a simple execu-
tive order they could be put
under government control.


"From there, the sky is the
limit! The initial profits could
go toward reducing the
national debt. Since it will
not require taxing or cut-
backs, bipartisan support is
ensured.


'As architect of this plan I
believe I will be in 'the cat-
.bird seat' to become
America's Swan Czar.
"Politically savvy friends
have counseled the title is
most likely to be conferred by
a Republican administration,
but more likely funded by a
Democratic regime. In either
case I'm willing to be flexible
about nomenclature as long
as it becomes a cabinet-level
position.
"You'll note I anticipate an
annual income of 15 swans,
but given the enthusiasm of
my cob and pen, this could
be a conservative projection.
Once trading in swan futures
begins, their value could take
off like stock in Google.
"There will be tremendous
future benefits for your bank.
As swans grow in value as a
commodity, the profession of
Swanherding will expand as
rapidly as computer pro-
gramming. In a few years
your bank should be deluged
with applications for credit
from Swvanherds! Be assured
that, in my role as Swan
Czar, will be generous in rec-
ommending your bank
above all others because of
your astute decision to help
with my plan.
"Anxiously awaiting the
cards, I am,
Richard Harrison,
Swanherd"

It has been weeks now and
I'm still waiting!
Is it possible my applica-
tion has been lost in the mail?



Dick Harrison is a Venice
resident. His essay "Confes-
sions of a swanherd" was a
finalist in the Tiny Lights
Writing Competition.

Business models and the business plan


ALLBUSINESS.COM
Q. What is a business
model and where does it
go in the business plan?
A: I think I reached my
40s with 20 years in real
business and an MBA degree
before I ever heard the term
"business model." It became
fashionable in thelate 1990s
when Internet companies
were absorbing millions of


__-M". 'iAj I

-o/ .J _

This column draws advice from more .
than 10 established experts providing
advice to businesses in a Q&A format.
, -..... .


investment dollars on
businesses that had no way
to make money. "Business


model" became the buzz-
word that explained how a
company makes money.


One of the more amusing
points about "business
model" is that its definitions
are so vague and far-,
ranging. For fun, go td
Google and type in "define:
business model." You'll
come up with about a dozen
definitions, ranging from
extremely vague to down-
right confusing. My favorite
definition is from Change-
Wave.com: "In the New


Economy it means: What
does a company do? How
does a company uniquely
do it? In what way (ways)
does the company get paid
for doing it? How much
gross margin does the
company earn per average
unit sale?"
I recommend that you
avoid the term altogether in
your business plan. Instead,
cover the bases that all


business plans cover.
Explain your company point
by point: what it sells, its
market, its strategy, its
management team, and its
financial projections. Let the
business model explain
itself.
From what I see these
days, people who talk about,
their "business model"
usually don't have one.

River Club's idyllic setting is near the Peace River.


Sales associates


Rothwell, Johnson


join D.R. Horton


.By NICHOLE KINNERSLEY
SPECIAL TO THE SUN
"Port Charlotte hasn't been
the same since the D.R.
' Horton team moved in to
build the River Club, a
luscious new single-family
gated community," said
Elizabeth Galloway, marketing
coordinator for D.R Horton.
Port Charlotte is welcom-
ing the new developments,
and their new associates
Roger Rothwell and Bob
Johnson.
"We are glad to welcome
Roger and Bob to the D.R.
Horton team!" Galloway said.
"Homebuyers should take
this opportunity to visit River
Club to view our beautiful
homes.,and meet our team!'
Roger recently moved to
Port Charlotte, from Naples,
Fla., with his wife and daugh-
ter. Before joining D.R.
Horton, Roger graduated from
the Mohawk College of
Applied Arts and Technology
in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada,
%with a major in e-commerce.
Hating endured the cold
weather, long enough, he
moved to sunny Naples and
began working for the Fort
Myers News Press as a real
'estate advertising representa-
tive. He then worked with a
custom homebuilder in
Naples for 14 months before
joining the D.R. Horton team.
In his free time, Roger loves
to stay in shape and has
reactivated a love for just
about any sport. "Since
moving to Florida, I have
discovered the joy of fishing."
Bob Johnson resides in Fort
Myers with his wife, D.J.,
where they share a busy home
with a dog, five cats and two
birds.
Bob and D.J. raised four
sons and are currently
spoiling their two grandsons.
A graduate from Belmont
University in Nashville, Tenn.,
Bob earned a bachelor's of
science degree in psychology,
and then a master's degree
and doctorate from Southern
Baptist Theological Seminary
in Louisville, Ky., with concen-
trations in management and
counseling.
Bob has worked, or consult-
ed, with successful sales
programs in more than 150
markets in 23 states, for
developers of residential
communities. He also has
more than 20 years of progres-
sive management and mar-
keting experience with new
residential communities
nationwide.
Prior to joining D.R. Horton,
Bob worked with a custom
homebuilder in Cape Coral in
land sales and property
management divisions.
Bob is now a sales associate
with River Club in Port
Charlotte.
Both Bob and Roger say
they are excited to represent
and sell the quality product at
River Club.
River Club offers 12 differ-
ent one- and two-story floor
plans with three to six spa-
cious bedrooms, up to four
and one half bathrooms, and
two- or three-car garages.
Homebuyers may choose
from a full spectrum of
floorplans that are decorated
with a lengthy list of features.
The River Club develop-
ment offers an assortment of
amenities, including: a resort-

Why are other builders just giving money awa


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.


DON'T settle for a home that's
not built just for you. A good deal is
one that works for you. Sacrificing features you want
just to get a good price won't bring happiness. Getting
what you want with KB Home-and nothing you
don't-brings real value.


question.




Because'. hey haV to.


DO bring any builder's price
sheet to a KB Home 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.


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