Hammett

confirms

run for


mayor

He is the first person to
declare his intentions
for the mayor's seat and
had to resign his city
council seat to do so.

BY MARY APOSTOLU
STAFF WRITER


Fred Hammett took the,
first official step Thursday
toward running for mayor -
he resigned from city council.
Hammett continues to
serve as mayor, filling the post
until. November, when an
election will be held for the
remaining year on Dean
Calamaras' term. Calamaras
resigned as mayor in May
with 17 months left on his
term after selling his home
and business sooner than
expected.
Hammett is the first person
to declare for mayor. Florida
law requires him to submit
his resignation from his coun-
cil seat (held now by Jim
Woods) in writing at least 10
days prior to the first day of
the qualification period for
council and mayor, which
begins at 8 a.m. Tuesday, Sept.
5; and ends Friday, Sept. 8, at
noon.
The statutes state the resig-
nation need not be effective
until the date Hammett
would take office, Wednesday,
Nov. 15, at 11 a.m. If Hammett
loses the race for mayor, his
resignation cannot be revok-
ed.
Council member John
Simmonds has announced he
is running for re-election.
Vicki Taylor, whose term is
also up this year, has not offi-
cially said whether she will
run again, and Woods has not
said if he plans to run for elec-
tion.

The first week of school is
always full of, firsts. But stu-
dents and staff at Garden
Elementary School in Venice
were first in line to use their
tornado drill skills Friday
morning.
"We received an alarm
from the National Weather
Bureau at 11:36 a.m., stating
two waterspouts were coming
ashore at Venice Beach," said
Principal John McQueen.
"Minutes later, a bulletin
from the Sarasota County
School District came across
the wire instructing all schools
from Laurel Road south to
take precautions," he added.
"We had already been in


the preparedness stage when
the second bulletin hit. The
staff responded beautifully,
the students were attentive .
and even the kindergartners
did a fantastic job," McQueen
said.
According to information
from the Weather Bureau,
waterspouts that move onto
land become tornadoes. Fun-
nel clouds can be brief and
small, but they can produce
dangerous tornadoes. And, of
course, tornadoes can be dan-
gerous.
Friday's tornadoes appar-
ently dissipated quickly, and
no damage was reported.

It was a beautiful day at Venice Beach Saturday for people with no sense of smell. A
red-tide bloom that fouled both the air and the water kept most people away from the
Gulf of Mexico.


BY STEPHEN BAUMANN
STAFF WRITER


If you're hoping to get in
a little quality beach time
this weekend, 'you" might
want to head to Engle-
wood.
The red tide that re-
turned to the Gulf of Mex-
ico in recent weeks is con-
tinuing to creep north
along the coast, affecting
Venice and Sarasota.
A spokeswoman for the
Sarasota County Parks and
Recreation Department re-
ported Venice Beach was
experiencing an outbreak
as of late Friday morning,
complete with dead fish.
And it was reportedly spot-
ty in Sarasota.
But the beaches along
Manasota Key appeared


relatively free of the red tide
algae Friday.
On Manasota Beach at
the northern end of the key,
a handful of people were,
swimming early Friday
morning. No dead fish
could be seen; breathing
was easy.
Down the key, near
Englewood Beach, resident
Audrey Grant reported, "It
isn't bad right now. We
walked along the Tom
Adams Bridge this morning
and didn't notice any."
On Friday evening, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute posted a
report on its Web site that
said water testing had
found background concen-
trations of red tide this
week from Lido Key in
Sarasota County to the


Naples Pier.
"Highest concentrations
are currently located along
the Sarasota County coast,
while areas of Lee County,
iniluditig Pine Island
Sound, have seen a de-
crease in (red tide) concen-
trations since last week,"
the report said. '
"Samples collected 1 to
10 miles offshore between
Venice and Gasparilla Pass
contained concentrations
ranging from present to
medium in both surface
and bottom samples. Wide-
spread fish kills were ob-
served in this offshore
area," the report said.

microscopic algae called

"Like most young boys,"
said John Reed, "I had aspira-
tions of becoming a fireman.
That dream came true in
1991, when I started working
for the Venice Fire Depart-
ment."
Now, at age 42, Reed is
about to rise above even that
dream by becoming chief of
the department.
In official action Tuesday,
he was appointed to the
chief's position effective at
the end of October, following
the retirement of Mike John-
son, who has served as chief
for the past five years.
Though his earliest years
were in Baltimore, Md., Reed's
family moved to Sarasota in
1970.
"My father owns BMR In-
sulation Contracting in Sara-
sota," he said. "My brother
and I helped out as kids, and
by the time I was 18, I was
working for him as a licensed
insulation installer."

sota High School and was at-
tending Manatee Com-
munity College.
"A friend who worked for
the Sarasota County Fire De-
partment at the time invited
me to ride along on a couple
of shifts," he recalled. "I got to
see the extremes of their
work, from a baby being de-
livered under stressful condi-
tions to a family's house being
completely destroyed by fire.
"Seeing the rescue person-
nel in action under those
conditions really confirmed
my determination to become
a firefighter. I wanted to be in
a career where I'd really be
able to help people by saving
lives and preventing property
damage.
"When I started looking for
a fire school to attend that
would fit into my schedule of
work," Reed continued, "the
Venice Fire Academy was per-
fect. Not only was it conve-
nient for me to attend, the
level of training was also top
notch and the training offi-
cers were great. I got a good


look at the Venice depart-
ment, and decided that's
where I wanted to be."
Up through the ranks
That was in 1990. Just a few
months later, after complet-
ing his schooling, Reed was
hired by the city of Venice. He
focused on serving as a fire-
fighter for four or five years
before he began filling in as a
lieutenant. He found the
supervisory position to be to
his liking.
He had also become a
member of the department's
hazardous materials team,
and was working toward cer-
tification as Fire Officer I,
which was required for pro-
motion.
"For six or seven years," he
said, "I was also a member of
the Firematics Team. We held
annual competitions against

DAVID LEVY YULEE was the first U.S. Senator from Florida
and the first Jew to serve as a senator. He was born at St.
Thomas, West Indies, in 1810 and immigrated to America
in 1818. As a delegate to the Florida Territorial Congress,
Levy was instrumental in securing the state's entry into
the union in 1845. His innovative ideas for financing an
Atlantic-to-Gulf Coast railroad earned him the title of
"The Father of Florida Railroads." By initiating the rail-
roads, extending telegraph service and establishing the
first mail route to Cuba, Yulee signaled the beginning of a
new chapter in Florida history. The town of Yulee and the
county of Levy are named in his honor.

Local beaches score 'excellent' on water quality in 2005


BY RICK BARRY
PELICAN PRESS

The Natural Resources
Defense Council, which for 16
years has documented a steady
decline in water quality at the
nation's beaches, has filed suit
against the Environmental
Protection Agency demanding
it enforce standards.
The Defense Council is
asking the federal courts to
force the EPA to issue "new
standards that fully protect
water quality" that were due
last October, according to a
congressional mandate con-


trained in the Beach Health
Act passed six years ago, said
Linda Young of the Clean
Water Network of Florida at a
press conference announcing
the lawsuit.
Now the EPA says it can't
have the new standards
before 2011.

District to compile inventory of historic school facilities


Draggin'


the line


BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
PELICAN PRESS


In the wake of its decision
to demolish historic buildings
at Riverview High School to
make way for new facilities,
the Sarasota County School
Board has asked district staff
to compile a list of other his-
toric and valuable school
properties in the county. That
way, the board will be aware
of those structures if discus-
sions about their future arise
at some point.
During a July 19 meeting,
board member Laura Benson
noted that people in the com-
munity had accused the
school board of not giving
enough consideration to sav-
ing the 1958 Riverview build-
ings designed by Paul
Rudolph, who went on to
become dean of Yale Univer-
sity's School of Architecture.
Rudolph is one of a group of
architects whose work is
known internationally as the
Sarasota School of Archi-
tecture.
Benson asked whether the
board could establish an
advisory committee to assist
it in similar situations in the
years ahead. Such a group,
she added, also could be
charged with finding grants to
help preserve historic local
school buildings.
Chair Carol Todd said, "I
think the board needs an
overarching policy on how to
deal with these issues."
Vice Chair Frank Kovach
suggested the board consider
some changes in its policies.
However, he said, "I think
what happened with River-
view worked out very well."
He was wary of setting up
an advisory committee, he
said, as "it could be problem-
atic with the board" if the


majority of the committee
members opposed action the
board felt was appropriate.
In light of what he called
"poor communication" be-
tween the board and the
community over the future of
Riverview, board member
John P Lewis proposed the
inventory of the remaining
historic buildings in, the dis-
trict. Once that was complet-
ed, he said, the board mem-
bers could talk about whether
to establish an advisory com-
mittee.
Lewis also expressed dis-
may that, "because of casual
conversation, plenty of peo-
ple in Venice already feel a
decision has been made by
the district to move Venice
High School from its present
location."
On July 11, Venice City
Council unanimously adopt-
ed a resolution supporting
the rebuilding of the high
school on its current site. The
resolution says the council
"does not support (the
school's) proposed relocation
by Sarasota County School
Board."
The school board has
taken no vote on Venice High.
Superintendent Gary Nor-
ris pointed out that members
of the community apparently
had misinterpreted district
officials', efforts to gain infor-
mation for the board, know-
ing a new school was needed
in Venice.
"One of the things we try to
do," Lewis said, "is provide
the community the assurance
that we represent their best
interests. I really am dis-
turbed at the way we handled'
Riverview."
"Unfortunately," board
member Kathy Kleinlein said,
"we cannot control the pas-
sions of the community."


If the district can maintain
historic or valuable buildings
to keep them in use, she
added, the board should
make sure that happens. If
structures no longer .serve
their purpose well, she said,
."to' me, that vote is kind of
clear."
Benson agreed with Lewis'
proposal about the inventory.
Kovach expressed frustra-
tion with comments he had
heard that the board needed
to give the public adequate
opportunity to address issues.
Noting that the board later
that day would hold a meet-
ing on the tentative budget
for 2006-07, he said, "I bet five
people won't be here and
.yet we're going to be accused
of not engaging people on the
budget."
Regarding the develop-
ment of the inventory of
historic structures, acting As-
sociate Superintendent Scott
Lempe told the board, "I think
that's a relatively simple thing
for us to do."
That discussion was not
the last time Riverview was
mentioned on July 19.
During the public comment
portion of the board's formal
meeting that afternoon,
Mark Smith of Sarasota,
incoming president of the
Florida Association of the
American Institute of Arch-
itects, told the board he had
received "a great deal of
response" in the aftermath
of the board's June 20 vote.
"Folks out there are not
real happy," he said.
Smith was among the
speakers during that meeting
who had asked the board to
save the Rudolph structures.
"I did feel it necessary to
come back and let you know
(the vote) was not positively
received," he said.

Viatical investors say justice eludes them


Seniors go Hawaiian


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

In their heyday, two of the
top executives in the now-
defunct viatical investment
company Mutual Benefits
Corp. were able to "siphon
off" millions of dollars, which
they spent on horse farms,
home renovation projects,
private jets and personal cre-
dit card expenses, a court-
appointed receiver has
claimed.
Now, as a two-year effort
by the Securities & Exchange
Commission to recover tens
of millions of dollars in losses
for duped investors draws to
an end, at least two local
investors say they feel like
they've "gotten the shaft."
They say they now expect
to receive as little as $5 in
reimbursement for a $12,000
investment.
The investors, Ron Gillis of
Venice and John Romanus of
Port Charlotte, cite a June
report from MBC's court-
appointed receiver, who said
some investors may even be
charged more in processing
costs than they would recoup
in payments from the sale of
their investments.
"The crooks win again,"
said Romanus. "It's a lost
cause."
All but one of the corpora-
tion's top three executives
have settled fraud charges by
paying a total of $25 million in
fines and "disgorgement" of
their ill-gotten gains.
The last executive, Steve
Steinger, has negotiated a
proposed fine that will be-
come final once approved by
the SEC commission, said
Alise Johnson, an attorney for
the SEC.
Romanus and Gillis have
worked since the late 1990s to
prod state and federal agen-
cies to pursue justice for
MBC's viatical investors.
Gillis said he feels disap-
pointed to the point ofdisilu-
siopment. si yw
"I may never vote again,"
he said.
Milked
Gillis said he's particularly
upset because the receiver is
paying dozens of attorneys
some $2 million for their work
in processing the dissolution
of the company over the past
two years.


"The bottom line is the
attorneys milked the system,"
he said.
Johnson, however, said the
SEC views the case as "a big
victory."
"We stopped the miscon-
duct while there was still
something left," she said
Wednesday.
The SEC's intervention
also led to federal court rul-
ings that clarified that viatical
investments are securities.
That brought both state and
federal scrutiny to the previ-
ously unregulated viatical
industry, she said.
"While it was murky
before, it's clear now," John-
son said.
A viatical is an investment
in which investors buy shares
in the life insurance policies
of terminally ill patients.
The investments are pur-
chased, usually through a
broker, from a "viatical pro-
vider" such as MBC. The pro-
vider pays the insurance pre-
miums for the patients.
The investments allow the
patients, who are known as
viatorss," to receive a lump
sum for their insurance poli-
cies before they die.
The price of the viatical is
based on the life expectancy
of the viator, which was deter-
mined by a physician.
Once the patient dies, the
life insurance policy pays the
viatical provider, which then
distributes a percentage of
the proceeds to the investors.
Uncooperative
MBC became the target of
dozens of complaints that
surfaced after the vast major-
ity of its viators outlived their
life expectancies. That left
investors still waiting for pay-
offs years later.
Investigators also have
alleged that MBC's medical
doctor misrepresented mate-
rial facts in estimating the life
expectancies of the viators.
Gillis, for ,example,,,said
he bought $10,000 in viatical
investments on two AIDS
patients in 1997. One pat-
ient died, but the other dis-
appeared for a period of
years.
The viator was apparently
located in another state, but
has since refused to cooper-
ate with MBC representatives
seeking information about
his health, Gillis said.


"I believe he's now living a
healthy lifestyle in California
-13 years later," Gillis said.
When MBC sold him the
investments, he was told the
viators were expected to live
only six months to a year,
Gillis said.
MBC, based in Coral
Gables, sold viatical policies
with a face value of $1.4 bil-
lion to some 50,000 investors
nationwide.
Options
The SEC placed MBC into
receivership in May 2004.
When the SEC seized the
company, it contained $100
million with which to operate
the company.
In September 2005, the
receiver sent notices to the
investors giving them three
options. They could:
keep their viatical invest-
ments but take over paying
the premiums from MBC.
let the receiver sell their
viatical investments for them
at auction.
abandon the investment.
Some 3,037 investors opt-
ed to retain their investments
in hopes their viators will
eventually die and their in-
surance policies pay off, ac-
cording to the receiver's re-
port.
Another 3,138 investors
voted to sell their investments
to other investors. The win-
ning bids ranged from $5 to
$33,330, according to the
receiver.
After the cost of processing
the sales is spread among the
investors, the amount some
of the investors will recover
will be "very small," the re-
ceiver said in a notice.
Johnson, however, said the
auctions for a majority of the
investors who opted to sell
their viaticals have yet to take
place. They may recover, as
much as 50 percent of their
investments, she said.
Johnson said she advises
investors to choose reputable
invesmient houses backed '
federal insurance over ade-'
pendent companies operat-
ing on the fringe of regula-
tion.
But to paint the govern-
ment as the villain in the case
is unfair, she said.
"They need to blame the
bad guys, not the regulators,"
Johnson said. "They invested
in a risky investment."

New fairgrounds arena plans should be ready this autumn


A 50,000-to-60,000-square-foot facility would be
twice the size of Robarts Arena. Its 55-foot-high
ceiling would accommodate winter quarters for
circus rehearsals.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Fair officials are deter-
mined to replace outdated
Robarts Arena with or
without help from Sara-
sota County, and finance
the ambitious undertaking
through a variety of alterna-
tive sources. Their challenge
is to raise between $15 mil-
lion and $19 million.
"We're setting our fund-
raising goals for a new facility
that is more than just an agri-
cultural arena," Fair Board
President Rory Martin said.
"Right now we need to extend
a contract with our consul-
tant so that we can go ahead
on our own."
What the fair board envi-
sions is a 50,000-to-60,000-
square-foot facility that


would be roughly twice the
size of Robarts Arena, and
include a 55-foot ceiling that
would provide 20 additional
feet of clearance for Ringling
Bros. and Barnum & Bailey
Circus winter rehearsals.
"These plans are still very
preliminary," Martin said. "We
would like to go public and
announce a fundraising cam-
paign later this autumn. Our
first order of business is to get
the consultant on board, then
hire a local architect to provide
the final touches."
The financing plan could
include proceeds from the
sale of a 5-acre Tuttle Avenue
parcel, significant contribu-
tions from at least two fair
board members, a state agri-
cultural grant, local founda-
tion grants and a possible
advance on lease payments


from the circus.
Additional revenue pos-
sibly $3 million could
become available through an
extension of the county's 1-
cent local-option sales tax,
but the fair board won't count
it until the money is allocated
by county commissioners
and approved by voters.
Rebuffed
Thus far, all fair board
efforts to work with the coun-
ty on badly needed fair-
grounds improvements have
been rebuffed, and there has
been a concerted effort to
relocate the fairgrounds east
of 1-75 as a prerequisite for
any financial assistance.
In 2004, fair board mem-
bers rejected County Admin-
istrator Jim Ley's initial pro-
posal that the fairgrounds
move to a more rural loca-
tion. They have continued to
hold firm on that decision
and been forced to plan for
the future without county
assistance.
On June 16, Ley sent a one-


paragraph letter to Martin that
recognized the fair board was
unwilling to provide a "yes" or
"no" on relocating to an
unspecified site east of 1-75 so
space could be cleared for a
new Cincinnati Reds spring
training baseball stadium.
"I have encouraged the
dialogue because I believe
this to be a seminal point in
time for the fair board," Ley
stated in the letter, "and likely
the first and last opportunity
for the fair board to enter into
a financial partnership with
the county."
Martin's response was
polite, but firm.
"Our best bet might be to
stay and go it alone," he said.
"We've been generous to the
community for years and
encouraged an open dialogue
with local governments.
There has been no sign
from them other than Mr. Ley
wants us to relocate."
Anchor
The apparent desire of fair
board members to move


ahead on their own and build
a new all-purpose arena
affects a $150 million "North
County Recreation Facility
Enhancements" plan devised
by City Manager Mike
McNees and Ley.
Their plan is conceptual in
nature and based, at least in
part, upon the receipt of a $15
million state grant that would
help move the Cincinnati
Reds out of Ed Smith Stadium
and into a new spring train-
ing- complex. Their first
choice of site location was the
fairgrounds.
But a recent offer by
Ringling Bros. to rent arena
space fot more than three,
months each year has provid-
ed fair board members with
the prospect of a long-term
anchor tenant that could help
finance the construction of a
new arena.
The fair board has expend-

ed about $250,000 in recent
years on consultants for con-
ceptual plans that include a
new arena, exhibition facili-
ties and in some altema-


tives a hotel and confer-
ence center that would frofit
on Fruitville Road.
Drawings depicted pro-
jects ranging from $36 million
to $56 million, depending on
how big and versatile the new
arena would be, but the plans
lacked financing and
prompted fair board mem-
bers to explore partnerships
with local governments.
Since then, circumstances
have changed. A developer
has offered the fair board $6
million for the 5-acre Tuttle
Avenue site, and two fair
board members have report-
edly offered to contribute $2
million each toward con-
struction. It's enough for a
scaled-back shell of an arena.
According to Martin, arena
amenities could be paid for
with a Florida Department of
Agriculture grant, local foun-
dation grants and other con-
tributions. It isn't what the fair
board initially envisioned,
but the county's reluctance to
help forced a reassessment of
original plans.

SCAT hybrid bus makes debut
Sarasota County Area Transit's (SCAT) new
diesel-electric hybrid bus made its fleet debut re-
cently. To celebrate the more fuel efficient hybrid,
SCAT is .offering 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 rotates among the different
SCAT routes.
The hybrid electric-diesel is up to 30 percent more
fuel-efficient than the standard diesel bus, saving
an estimated 7,000 gallons of diesel fuel per year.
Italso can reduce most emissions by more than 90
percent. The hybrid is the first of 10 the county has
ordered and will have in operation by early 2007.

as one of the
Top 25 state

Detert said her time in the

for Congress, and her famil-
iarity with Florida's delega-
tion and realistic attitude
would help her succeed in her
first term.
She thinks big business
gets too many tax breaks and
would look at retaining the
estate tax for high-end es-
tates. She opposes amnesty
for illegal aliens but would
support a guest-worker pro-

restoring fiscal responsibity is
his major focus, one his party
has gotten away from.
He would continue Bush's
tax cuts, and pledged to con-

Detert will do the job for us in Washington


running for office is a grueling job, and
one in which money, unfortunately,
has come to play a major role.
In the flood of billboards, brochures, TV
and newspaper ads that money gets spent
on, it can be easy to forget that the idea is to
pick the best candidate, not the most visible
one.
Trying to do that in each race, we are look-
ing for the combination of leadership and
experience that would make one person
stand out. Among Vern Buchanan, Donna
Clarke, Nancy Detert, Mark Flanagan and
Tramm Hudson for the Republican nomina-
tion in Congressional District 13, we think
that person is Detert.
As a member of the Sarasota County
School Board and, most recently, the District
70 representative in the Florida House,
Detert has built a stellar record of service to
her constituents, and won virtually every
award a legislator can get, from a diverse
group of organizations.
She is known for looking out for the area
she represents, and while we haven't always


agreed with some of those efforts stadium
funding, for example there's no question
Detert has been in there pitching on our
behalf.
Her knowledge of the legislative process
here, and her familiarity with the other
members of the Florida delegation, position
her to have the most impact as a freshman of
any of the candidates, in our opinion.
But that might not even be the biggest rea-
son we think she should get the Republican
nomination.
Despite their claims of independent
thinking, most of the candidates we have
interviewed Republicans and Democrats
- seem to adhere too closely to the party
line. Detert was known in the Florida House
to be someone who could not be bullied, and
she'll be that way in Washington. .
Contrary to the stereotypical Republican
platform, Detert says big business gets too
many tax breaks. She would consider a
"high-end" inheritance tax, a nationwide
catastrophic insurance pool and more action
to address global warming.


We think that all but the most rock-ribbed
Republican would agree George Bush and
Katherine Harris have had some problems
this year, but Detert was the only candidate
who was truly critical of their shortcomings,
and of Congress' virtual abandonment of its
role as an equal branch of the government.
Among the other candidates, Hudson
spoke out early and often about the ethical
lapses in Washington that have been so.
much in the news this year, and he couldn't
be more right.
If elected, he would work to clean them up
and his connections in Republican politics
could help him build a platform from which
to do it.
Hudson is a Dan Miller-type Republican,
however philosophically opposed to
bringing money back to his district because
it might be considered pork: -
We have the utmost respect for Miller, but
when funds have been set aside for particu-
lar types of projects, our representative
shouldbe there trying to tap into them for us.
Hudson also has no experience as an


elected official, and we think that's a strike
against him and Buchanan. No matter how
well connected' they may be in the party,
there is still a substantial learning curve after
winning an election.
Harris ran in 2000 touting even stronger
GOP ties, and her list of achievements in four
years is not long.
We liked that Buchanan deviated from the
party line on one big issue, saying there
should be no additional tax cuts and no
Congressional raises until the budget is
balanced.
That might inspire some people to act, but
it's hard to see how the goal can be accom-
plished while we're still funding the war in
Iraq.
Flanagan and Clarke both served with
Detert in the Florida House, but we just aren't
as impressed with their records, and think
the interests of South County voters wouldn't
be as important to them as they are to us.
We recommend .Nancy Detert as the
Republican candidate for Congressional
District 13.


What can we


learn from others?


BOBVEDDER' ----mh


We have just about wrap-
ped up interviewing candi-
dates for the primary elec-
tions. A couple of things are
very evident from them.
First of all, there are a lot of
very good people running for
the open positions, and
because of so many races and
fewer incumbents, we are
seeing the best crop of candi-
dates ever.
Another thing that stands
out is that they all generally
walk and talk the party line
with little individual thought,
although there have been
some exceptions I hope we
tell you about over the next
few weeks.
As Sue and I traveled
Scandinavia, Finland and St.
Petersburg, Russia, we experi-
enced different cultures that
have found ways to try to
solve some of the problems
we have. I don't say that these
are all the right answers, but
they might just make some-
one think a little.
An important issue in all
those Nordic countries is en-
vironmefnt. They have taken
lots of different approaches,
many we would find impossi-
ble to live with, particularly
with our desire for so much.
All of the countries have
found ways to reduce the
number of cars. Gas ranged
from $6 to $8 a gallon with a
tax in at least one country of
75 percent. This will slow
down your driving.
Denmark has embraced
bicycles in a huge way. There
were almost 200,000 in
Copenhagen alone., This is
inspired by a tax on new cars
of 80 percent. They say that
they basically have to pay for
two cars to get one. ; ,
Another approach is to
have a toll each time you
come into the city. You get a
device that is like our Sun
Pass when you buy a car. It
costs $3 each time you come
into town ouch! They are
expanding that around the
region. They had just finished
a test in Stockholm when we
were there and they had
found a reduction of 20 per-
cent of cars coming into the


city.
One way to reduce the use
of gas is to have a driving age
of 18. This helps also keep the
family together and lessens
accidents by young drivers. I
assume this saves a lot of gas.
They recycle a lot, using
everything left over for some-
thing. They also have em-

;. he a4,ommitme.p;it.
Norway had a huge desire
to use wind power, getting
almost 20 percent from this
source. They had huge mod-
ern windmills in the middle
of the bay, among other
places. Sweden has 10 nuc-
lear power plants.
Some other things that
seemed interesting were in
the political arena. In Sweden
voting was on Sunday, which I
think we could use. They were
upset that in their last nation-
al election they only had an
81-percent turnout. They
send out a card to every regis-
tered voter to tell them two
weeks in advance where they
are to vote and when. Can-
didates could not run ads on
TV and had shared time in
debates.
There are six or seven po-
litical parties, which certainly
gave everyone a party that fit
their needs. In Russia the
president does not run in a
partisan election, which has a
certain nice sound to it.
Many would like the fact
most of the Nordic big cities
had height restrictions, albeit
about five stories.
They have very strong and
different warnings on ciga-
rettes. For instance: "Smoking
seriously damages you and
those around you"; "Smoking
can damage sperm and de-
crease fertility; and "Smoking
causes fatal lung cancer."
That is really in your face.
They have toilets that have
two modes, one for handling
a number one and the other a
number two. They have far
fewer lawyers and police, and
I am sure OSHA does not
practice over there to protect
people: When we went to a
cliff without a handrail, no
one was making sure we did-
n't fall off. They don't try to
protect people from their own
stupidity.
The bathrooms in hotel
rooms almost all have heated
towel racks and bathroom
floors both nice, especially
if you are trying to dry clothes.
Maybe Florida could be
like Norway and have a state-
run oil company, strike oil in
the gulf like they did in the
North Sea and wipe out all,

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Action on energy needed now


Editor:
Energy independence is essential for our security. Wash-
ington needs to get tough on oil and our economy.
How often are we going to allow ourselves to be held up by
some minor hoodlum in the Middle East just because we need
oil? When will our president or Congress do something?
Stop what you're doing right now, pick up the phone and
scream at your elected officials. Tell them they won't be hold-
ing office much longer if they don't get the heck out of the pool
and do the job they were elected to do namely, come up
with legislative solutions.
We are spending too much on oil and gasoline, and on wars
in regions of the world from which these commodities' can be
found.
We should mandate a changeover on automobile engines to
hybrid engines, flex cars and battery-driven cars and give
automakers tax incentives so they can offer our buyers an
option for a hybrid engine on any model. Drill for oil anywhere
it can be found in this country. Exxon Mobil could put a rig in
my front yard.
Right now the economy is' showing growth of inflation.
Another hike in the prime rate will be made if inflation accel-
erates.
If the bubble bursts in the housing market, Washington
needs to be ready to allow people to use IRAs and 401ks to buy
homes. We must protect the housing market or our economy
will remain slow and cause higher unemployment across the
United States.

Use land wisely;
supply is limited
Editor:
I find council seems to
overlook its own responsibili-
ties. Council has enforced
violations on 'individuals.
Have members of council
taken a tour of the city, street


by street?
1. The area to the left of the
Circus Bridge is an absolute
eyesore with grass growing up
the chain-link fence, the sec-
ond floor above the roof,
through all the cracks of the
cemented area.
2. From the Oncology Cen-


ter to Fairway Street are sever-
al buildings that do not con-
form to the downtown style
and are grown up with weeds.
3. Babe's' semi-trailer park-
ed on the main drag is very
out of code for a city that con-
demns high grass or a green
swimming pool. (Also sheds
light on how neighbor-friend-
ly the residents are).
4. The post office on the
island is definitely in need of
cleaning, weeding and land-
scaping.
The island and areas
around the island should be
preserved for the best, espe-
cially for tourism.
The rule of council regard-

they are either city-owned or

Through Sept. 3, the Gondolier
Sun will not print letters to the
editor endorsing or criticizing

cal races. We will, however,
print letters on topics involved
in the races, provided they do

must adhere to our normal
letters policy, meaning sub-
missions should be 250 words
or less, and include the

Violator. There is a rental house on Siren Road in South
Venice that has the greenest, thickest lawn in all of Sarasota
County. If you don't believe me, drive by and check it out. You
can't miss it. By the way, you will see two sprinklers spraying
full blast. It is pouring rain out right now and the sprinklers are
running. It is not a Sunday or a Tuesday and it is between 10
a.m. and 4 p.m. My husband walks our dog at dusk and dawn
and the sprinklers are on every day. The neighborhood is on
well water. Could the adjacent wells go dry? Is there anything
that can be done about this violator of water restrictions?

year and whose CEO gets a

tirement package when I and
many other people are strug-
gling to fill their gas tanks and
giving up other things so they
can get to work and take the
kids to school and soccer and
baseball practice. This is not a
country where everyone lives
down the street from the Ford

ple can car pool. Everybody
has different schedules. That's
from the old school. Ideally
that would be perfect but
that's not going ,to happen.

Tipped off. Yesterday in the
Venice Herald-Tribune, there
was an article about a police
officer who was suspended
for four days without pay and
is now taking early retire-
ment. This fellow tipped off a
resident of Grove Terrace that
there was going to be a drug
raid. The drug raid was a joint
drug raid between Venice and
Sarasota. Now, I want to know
(1) why hasn't the Gondolier
Sun covered this, and (2) what


is going to be done about this
officer? I should think that in
the least there would be some
action by the county to indict
him, but no, he's retiring early
with his pension, I assume.
What other things has he
done in 20-odd years of being
a cop?

this story first, on July 23.
Ignorant. In the July 23

Good job. I want to compli-

Paper trail is
a waste of money
Editor:
Those seeking a vote paper
trail act as if they live in Dade
or Palm Beach county, where
the trail in the 2000 election
was hanging chads.
Perhaps a paper trail would
be ideal. If so, where was the
Sarasota Alliance for Fair
Elections when our county
government elected.to go with
the touch-screen system at a
cost of $4.5 million? And it now


wants the taxpayers to spend
yet another $2 plus million for a
paper trail system?
I am rather tired of govern-
ment spending where it is not
necessary and feel that it
would be prudent to utilize
our current system until we
get our money's worth and
new technologies --are devel-
oped that satisfy legal re-
quirements and doubters.
It should also be pointed out
that the current touch-screen
system has the technology that
enables individuals with spe-
cial needs to vote without assis-
tance and that the 2006 fed-
eral election law requires that
each voting precinct nation-
wide have at least one touch-
screen system.
This is not the time to


spend tax dollars unwisely.
Really, is there any reason to
doubt that our county super-
visor of election's team is not
working for all of us? A
reminder in 2000 no chads
were found in Sarasota.

state debt and be able to pro-

This explains why the Nor-,

"Blue Eyed Arabs." ,
They have opted to have
higher reserves for the rainy,
day when they have no more

and give every person in the
state a check each year.
The pastries and breads
over there I could get very
attached to, but not so much
the cabbage in Russia that
seemed to be in a lot of meals.
Certainly these countries
were beautiful and fascinat-
ing. It might sound like I want
to live there but not quite.
For those people who want
free health care, this may be

the place for you.
However, do- not be too
surprised to find out that the
tax rate might be as high as
70-75 percent.
That is also how they have
free education all the way
through college.
In talking to many people,
the only problem with the
free health care was that often
you could not get the service
without very long, often
months-long, waits.

treatment delayed so long
that she was now paralyzed.
For those in favor of raising
the minimum wage, in Nor-
way it was $14 an hour.
Ladies, "sale" is just as big
in shopping over there as
here. How fast my wife learn-
ed what 'ALE," "SALG" and
"REA" meant.
The cost of goods was
extremely high. People went
shopping in England or other
parts of Europe to get lower-
priced goods.
I did an economics study
of the countries: I compared
the price of a Big Mac in each
country.


This will give you a good
idea about the cost of living in
those countries.
In Russia a Big Mac is $2 (of
course, in rubles), while in
Finland and Denmark it is
$7.50. Norway is the most
.expensive country by far a
Big Mac in Oslo went for $10,
though only $8 in Bergen. In
Stockholm, the cheapest of
the Nordic countries, it was
$7.
Most of the countries had a
state church, so you could
deduct at your choice 1 per-
cent .from your. taxes. Most
people over there were con-
sidered "submarine church
goers" that is, they sur-
faced about three times year
to go. The Nordic countries
were all Lutheran.
Thought I'd see a lot of tall
blonde people and that just
wasn't the case.
Immigration is a big prob-
lem, as are a declining popu-
lation (probably due to cost)
and affordable housing.
Sound familiar?
I came away, as I always
do, with the feeling that there
is much to learn from other
areas of our world.
Unfortunately, I don't see
many if any of thf-e things
bifi thought about, debated
or picked up by our pollUi-
cians.
We had\ a great time;
maybe next week I'll share
some of the highlights of our
trip.

I was thrilled to learn that
we won 14 awards for ad
design in this year's contest.
Christina Morgan and her tal-
ented staff have really made
us and our customers proud.
We learn at the end of the
month the specific awards we
have won.

I came back to find the
Venice Avenue Bridge stair-
cases connecting the Vene-


tian Waterway Park done.
Also, the east side from the
train station south is done
.and being dedicated on Aug.
22 at noon just south of the
railroad station.

Today's Ism (seen some-
where on my trip was this
saying by Mahatma Gandhi):
"There is more to life than
increasing its speed."

By's Crack: There is a
relationship between reli-
gion and politics: Both
preachers and politicians
do their best work when
their eyes are closed.

I was excited to hear that
Ann Hall was named the
Venice Public Library manag-
er (it used to be head librari-
an). Ann has worked there for
a lot of years and has been
involved in the community
for a long time.

The huge mural that
Colleen Henry is doing on the
back of our print center is
beautiful and very big.

Home invasion suspect arrested


BYTOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Venice police are on a roll
with two high-profile arrests
in as many days.
Jesse James Shoupe, 34,
200 block N. Jessica St.,
Nokomis, was arrested Friday
and charged with home inva-
sion robbery. On Thursday,
officers arrested a suspected
car thief after tracking him on
foot. The arrests are not relat-
ed.
Shoupe's story began on
July 18, when he allegedly got
on the victim's sailboat
docked in the 900 block Gibbs
Road (near the South Jetty).
"(The victim) said the sus-
pect shoved him out of the
way, grabbed his pain med-
ication and left," Sgt. Tom
McNulty said. (The victim)
said he followed the suspect
off the boat. The suspect
grabbed him in a head lock
and knocked him to the
ground. The victim had abra-
sions and cuts."


Connecting the dots
The victim said he did not
know his attacker, according
to McNulty.
The victim may not have
known the alleged attacker,
but a female acquaintance of
the victim did.
McNulty said the woman
drove Shoupe to the sailboat.
It is unclear to investiga-
tors exactly what happened
next, but Shoupe allegedly
got onto the sailboat while
the woman may have driven
away.
"She apologized for what
happened and said she did
not know the man was going
to rob him (the victim),"
McNulty said. "She said she
kicked the suspect out of her
car when he told her what he
had done. She gave us a brief
description of the suspect."
She also did not give
Shoupe's real name when she
was questioned by Officer
Todd Reale, but gave the
name of someone else.

Line-up lie
The next day, Reale had a
photo line-up.
"It included an individual
that the woman had falsely
accused," McNulty said. "The
victim did not identify this
individual as the suspect."
Then McNulty called a
cell-phone number the
woman gave to Reale.
"A man answered who
identified himself using the
false name given to Reale,"
McNulty said. "The man said
he would 'make good with the
victim' for what he had done."
The case was turned over
to the detective bureau.
"This is a great collabora-
tive effort between the patrol
division and the detective
division," Chief Julie Williams.
said, "coupled with good
police work."

Red-light runners kill more
than 100 people every year in
Florida alone.
During National Stop on
Red Week, I rode along with
Venice's new traffic unit
aimed at catching those who
run red lights.
Venice Traffic Officer Ruth
Terry has heard it all.
'I didn't see it, I was in a
hurry,' she said. "Everyone
has the same old excuse."
But she didn't hearing any
excuses during National Stop

"It has the officers concen-
trate more on red light viola-
tions more than any other
time of the year," she said.
Each year, red light run-
ners injure more than 165,000
people, with nearly 1,000
fatalities.
While National Stop on
Red Week is over, the Venice
Police Department's new traf-

-Hi


Turn one room into two or three


the violations, so if we have a
unit out there we can try and
enforce the laws, and maybe
decrease the violations that
are happening out there every
day," said Terry.
Terry also wants you to
know that risking someone
else's life, or your own, it sim-
ply isn't cheap.
"Just want to let you know
the fine for running a red light
is $183.50," she said. "Ifs been
enhanced. It's a little stiffer
penalty than the $118.50."
So the next time you hit the
pedal on yellow before red,
just know the next 'lights you
see may be blue and red.
"They arerisking other peo-
ple's lives to save two minutes,"
said Terry. "It's not going to get
them there any faster."
The Venice Police Depart-
ment said the two intersec-
tions with the highest num-
bers of red-light.runners are
East Venice Avenue at the
bypass and West Venice
Avenue and Tamiami Trail.

' It is
n' estimated that one-third of
American adults suffer from
tension headaches, which are
also commonly referred to as
muscle-contraction headaches. This
type of headache usually starts at the
back of the head and moves forward
until it encompasses the entire head.
Tightness of the neck and scalp muscles
is the culprit behind the pain. While
nearly all tension headaches respond
well to chiropractic treatment that serves
to reduce tension, so-called cervinogenic
headaches (emanating from the cervical/
neck region) respond particularly well.
This type of headache is usually
characterized by neck and head pain on
the same side caused by a source in the
cervical spine. Changes by a
chiropractor can target this source to
reduce headache/neck pain.

P.S. If you suffer frequent tension
headaches, take regular breaks from work
in front of the computer or anywhere that
you are maintaining a constant position.

What's next for the Venice Train Depot?


BY JOSH TAYLOR
WWSB 7

The Venice Train Depot has
seen its ups and downs, first as
the centerpiece of a growing
Venice community, and then
years of dilapidation.
Now, it's a beautifully re-
stored building listed on the
National Register, but what to
do with it?
"She's magnificent. She's
been fully restored. I'd say she is
a crown jewel for Sarasota
County," said Betty Intagliata,
president of the Venice Area
Historical Society.
The Venice Train Depot,
built in 1927, was the comer-
stone of the Venice area for
decades, but three short years
ago it was falling apart and
ready for the wrecking ball.
After Sarasota County bought
the property and spent nearly
$3.5 million dollars in renova-
tions, it's now an icon.
"It would have been torn
down, which would have been
really sad as we've lost other
buildings," said Intagliata.
It wasn't an easy sell.
"There was some resistance.
A lot of people said, why waste
the money on an old place like
that?' "said GeorgeYoungberg.
Youngberg's father helped
build the depot.
"I feel a sense of reality," he
said. "It's always been here, will
stay here and it's like it was

WORDS WORTH
HEARING
.-No


then."
Today, passengers still come
and go, but on buses the
depot is a SCAT transfer station.
But the Venice Area Historical
Society also gives tours of the
grounds.
But what about the future?
"The Venice Train Depot as
you see it today is a work in
progress, even though it was
renovated," said Intagliata.
About two-thirds of the
restoration was paid for by the
Department of Transportation
and another million and
change came out of taxpayers
dollars. The historical society
would like to see it put to more
use.
"We would like to see the
freight room left open the way
it is today for people to rent for
birthday parties, bar mitzvahs,
you name it," said Intagliata.
"Then we would like to see
other rooms used as a muse-
umn."
Currently, you can rent
rooms for occasions, and start-
ing soon the Rails to Trails pro-
ject will bring bike riders to the
doorsteps. A concession stand
and bike rental may be on tap.
' 'At least they will get a sense
of the history that was here, not
only now, but into the future,"
said Intagliata.

By Vicki Connell, |
M. ... 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

Old landf ill site f ouls baseball stadium plans


The Ed Smith sports complex and stadium were
built over an old landfill and asphalt plant site.
Plans to either upgrade Ed Smith Stadium or
rebuild on site could force expensive mitigation.

BYJACKGURNEY very far. Negotiations never
PELICAN PRESS reached the point where new


fairgrounds locations were
seriously considered, and the
fair board continued to pur-
sue plans for a new all-pur-
pose arena that could replace
outdated Robarts Arena.
As a result, the city and
county are now eyeing a 40-
acre parcel at the northeast


comer of Tuttle Avenue and
12th Street kitty corner
from Ed Smith Stadium -
that is occupied by the Cal
Ripken Little League, BMX
Bicycle Motocross Track and
Ringling Redskins Football
Stadium.
If all three youth sports


activities can be relocated to a
113-acre privately owned par-
cel at the northwest comer of
Tuttle Avenue and Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. Drive, it would
clear the way for a new Reds'
stadium and receipt of the
$15 million state grant. But it
won't be easy.


Aqua Utilities Florida, a sub-
sidiary of Aqua America, owns
the parcel and uses it as a
sprayfield for treated sewage
wastewater. The parent firm is
the nation's largest publicly
traded water company. Efforts
to acquire the property are
reported to be ongoing.


The underlying reason
why city of Sarasota and
Sarasota County officials have
insisted on constructing a
new spring training stadium
for the Cincinnati Reds
almost anywhere other than
at the current Ed Smith
Stadium site can be traced
directly to what's buried
under it.
"We sit on a former land-
fill," said Jeff Maultsby, the
Reds' Florida operations
manager. "The environmen-
tal problems are unknown. If
the decision was to dig here I
don't know what would be
found. They (the city and
county) may not want to deal
with the environment."
Pat Calhoon, who man-
ages, the sprawling complex
at 12th Street and Tuttle
Avenue for the city, confirmed
how extensive the environ-
mental problems could
become if plans are pursued
to construct a new $55 mil-
lion stadium at the current
location.
"We would have to go
deeper with the substructure
for a new stadium," he said,
"which means there would be
a greater likelihood of getting
into asphalt in the right field
area or the landfill in the left
field area. If that were the
case, it is unknown how
expensive this could get."
Burned
City officials got their fin-
gers burned to the tune of
about $200.000 for environ-
mental mitigation when they'
previously excavated beneath
the first base dugout-atvEd-
Smith Stadium and un-
earthed the former asphalt
plant site. The experience
served as a warning.
They have been working
behind the scenes for almost
four years to negotiate a long-
term lease for the Reds to
continue their spring training
and minor league operations
in Sarasota, and discourage
the team from entertaining
offers to relocate in Arizona.
A $150 million North
County Recreation Facility
Enhancements plan devised
by City Manager Mike Mc-
Nees and County Admin-
istrator Jim Ley includes $55
million for a new Reds' stadi-
um, but it hinges on a lot of
pieces falling into place right
away.
The city and county are
under tight time constraints
to agree on a stadium site if
they expect to receive a $15
million grant from the state.
Gov. Jeb Bush recently signed
off on grants for five spring
training cities, but only if they
submit plans and apply for
them by Oct. 1.
While the state grant
would only represent about
10 percent of the proposed
$150 million project, it would
encourage the city and coun-
ty to raise additional tourist
tax revenue and adjust their
capital improvement bud-
gets. The Reds have pledged
$10 million to a new stadium.
"Wherever the new stadi-
um goes, our first preference
is there be one footprint,"
Maultsby said. "It would pro-
vide a major league spring
training stadium and minor
league practice fields at one
convenient location."
That could be an insur-
mountable problem for city
and county officials.
Unpersuaded
In 2004, Ley tried to per-
suade Sarasota County Agri-
cultural Fair Association di-
rectors to abandon the cur-
rent fairgrounds site on Fruit-
ville Road, and relocate
somewhere east of Interstate
75, so room could be made
for a new stadium, training
fields and parking.
The proposal didn't get

Defending champs looking good


Venice High School
volleyballers win two
preseason nfatches, eye
start of regular season.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The first Venice High sport-
ing event of the 2006-07
school year had to rate as a
smashing success.
The Lady Indians, defend-
ing Class 5A state volleyball
champions, won both of their
matches against teams from
Tampa in preseason action at
the spruced up north gym
Thursday and Friday nights.
On Thursday night, Venice
defeated defending Class 3A
runnerup Berkeley Prep in
three straight games, 25-19,
25-14, 25-19.
The Lady Indians followed
that up Friday night with a 25-
18, 25-17, 25-17 sweep of
Bayshore Christian, last year's
Class 1A runnerup.
"I happy with what we
saw," said veteran Lady
Indian coach Brian Wheatley.
"We gave everybody playing
time. We wanted to see what
we could do under pressure."
Wheatley and trusty assis-
tants Gary Halbert, Kristen
Batt and Barb Ginn saw some
things that need to be
tweaked.
"We have to finesse some
areas," Wheatley said. "The
positives we were swing-
ing hard, I thought we played
good D, we passed well and
the setters dished the ball."
Wheatley was impressed
that his girls had their .game,,,
faces oh. In last year's pre "-'
son matches, the Lady
Indians weren't very sharp.
"Usually we're in la-la land
the first couple of matches,"
Wheatley said.
Against Berkeley Prep,
senior middle Ashley Graf and
junior middle Casie Richards
had big games at the net.
Junior outside Kavlee Ream
opened eyes with her play.
Junior outside Casey Taylor
was super all-around. Junior
setter Nickie Halbert was her
usual steady self.
Against Bayshore, senior
outside Natalie Gaudreau
started and got the Lady
Indians out of the gate with a
pair of kills. Graf served with
precision. Gaudreau finished
with a team-high 10 kills.
Richards was also strong at

Stan and Cora Wright prepare vegetables for dinner.


Now you re cooking


V


enice neighbors
add a new twist to


a dinner party.

BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER


Too many cooks might
spoil the broth but one group
of Venice neighbors believes
"the more the merrier." '
When four couples meet to,
eat in one of their kitchens
each month it is sort of like
"Friends Meet the Food
Channel."
How it works
Couples gather on a pre-
planned date to participate in
the preparation of a pre-
planned meal with a specific
theme. Each has a hand in
making some of the food. The
theme idea was the brain-
child of Cora and StanWright,
who were the first hosts of a
new four-couple dinner
group that planned to meet
monthly.
"Since we were the first
couple to host, we wanted
each of our guests to join in
the fun," Cora said.
The Wrights printed off all
of the recipes and made
color-coded copies to give to
the dinner guests. As they
arrived, each was put to work.
Cooking equipment, spices
and recipes were placed with
the ingredients for every seg-
ment of the meal. Makeshift
workstations were created in
the kitchen area.
Preparation
Food ingredients are wash-
ed, chopped, cut into serving-
size pieces and then prepared
by the guests, according to
each of the recipes. Dinner
preparation usually begins at
5:30 p.m. Depending upon

the skill of the guests, and the
amount of wine consumed,
they usually will be consum-
ing their dinner by 8 p.m.
Meals consist of soup or
appetizer, entree, vegetables,
dessert and after dinner
drinks. All costs are split
between the four couples.
Appetizers can be made
either ahead or first -
depending how hungry your


guests are, and how long the
preparation time for the
recipe.
Theme
The host decides the
theme. Examples of previous
meals were Italian, Thai,
Greek, Yucatan, French and
Australian, which yielded the
recipes accompanying this
article. Pavlova is the most
popular dessert in Australia.
The Thai and Chinese themes
were the most exotic.
"I believe we should
,stretch a little," said Russ
Russell, a group regular. "We
should experience different
types of food and learn to
cook them."
His last dinner party fea-
tured Indian food.
"In the future, I think peo-
ple have to ease into Indian,
especially if they have never
tried it before it can be very
spicy," Russell said.
He did want to point out
that his somasas were well
received and if someone
wants the recipe they should
contact him.
One of the most important
tasks for the host couple is to
find recipes to fit the theme.
"You can get a world of
ideas from the Internet," re-
cent host Joyce Toms said,
adding that occasionally
there are problems.
"Our last dinner was Au-
stralian and we found recipes
on an Australian Web site" she
said. "Unfortunately all of the
ingredients were in metric
and they had to be convert-
ed."

version from Celsius to

Online Florida librarians have the answers


BY ANDREA GINSKY
GUEST WRITER


Busy professionals and
students have discovered the
best way to get the informa-
tion they seek is to ask a
Florida librarian online. This
free service allows you to ask
specific questions through
live chat or e-mail with a
librarian in Florida. Trained
information professionals
guide visitors to the answers
they need in minutes rather
than wasting hours navigat-
ing hundreds of unhelpful or
irrelevant Web sites.
'Ask a Librarian" oper-
ates 10 a.m.-10O p.m. Sunday
through Friday, and 10 a.m.-5


p.m. Saturday. The University
of Florida, Jacksonville Public
Libraries and the Lee County
Library System are the newest
participants in a statewide
network of community col-
lege, public, university and
private academic libraries
participating in "Ask a Lib-
rarian."
This is a wonderful service
the library offers to help to
patrons. From students doing
research for class to profes-
sionals looking for data
sources, a professional Flor-
ida librarian is there to help
them. You can access 'Ask a
Librarian" from work or your
home computer through the
Sarasota County Library


System Web site, sclibs.net, or
by logging on to askalibrari-

More than 90 libraries
statewide collaborate to pro-
vide this service to their pat-
rons and the patrons of other
participating libraries. "Ask a
Librarian" is a joint project of
the College Center for Library
Automation (CCLA) and the
Tampa Bay Library Con-
sortium (TBLC).
"Ask a Librarian" is funded
as part of the Florida Elec-
tronic Library (flelibrary.org)
by a Library Services and
Technology Act (LSTA) grant.

The cougar straddled my wife's


1A'RT AHM
PEW a (00UIMNIST

The cougar stepped across
my wife's back. June lay on
the ground,on her stomach.
The big cat lowered her
mouth toward June's neck!
"Larrrr'." June exclaimed.
"Is she purring?" I asked.
"Not really," was June's
reply. "She's sort of shnuf-
fling!"
I stepped closer, and lis-
tened. "Don't worry, that's
purring," I told her. Note:
cougars are the largest cat that
can purr. Also note: Cougars
usually kill their prey by biting
them on the back of the neck.
Later, June told me that the
cougar mama sniffed the
back of her neck. She could
feel her hot breath. "It tick-
led," June confessed, "but not
like Mid' (our cat at home).
How did we get ourselves
into this predicament? In
telling you, I'll let you in on a
little secret.
June is a writer. She's
known as Jalma Barrett, and
she was writing a cl ren's
book called Cougar, pqt of a
series of four books about the
wild cats of North America.
It's available in the Venice
library. We were taking pic-
tures to illustrate that book.

They aren't pets, by any
means, but they tolerate
human activity nearby.
Normally, a cougar (or Florida

would stay far away from
people, if it can.
Getting back to that sce-
nario above. June had been
playing with the little cougar
cubs (who could resist that

"' .scent on her, and we're sure
't that's what mama cougar
was sniffing. Perhaps she
was even wondering, "Is
theree one more cub here I
must pick up and carry away
jo u-to a safer place?" To me, it
looked like .she might
attempt to pick up June by
the back of her neckjust as

Happily, June wasn't hurt.

Commissioner Charles Bronson to host first-ever alternative fuel summit in Florida


STAFF REPORT

Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Com-
missioner Charles H. Bron-
son today announced that he
is taking steps to pave the way
for alternative fuel produc-
tion and use in Florida. Hte is
hosting the first-ever Florida
Farm to Fuel Summit, Aug.
30-Sept. 1, at the Omni Or-
lando at Champions Gate.
The summit will cover cur-
rent research initiatives, fu-
np reduction and distribu-
di atethanol and bio-diesel
iasr6rida, and incentives-
/fionccing opportunities for
the alternative or renewable
fuels industry.
It is attracting high-level
participants from the federal
and state government, as well
as representatives of private
industry who will be a driving
force in achieving a major
alternative fuels program.
Keynote speakers include
Assistant Secretary for Energy
Efficiency and Renewable
Energy Alexander Karsner,
USDA Under Secretary for
Research, Education and
Economics Gale Buchanan,
State Senator Lee Con-
stantine and State Represen-
tative Adam Hasner. The pro-
gram will also feature a spe-
cial presentation on Brazil's
effort at achieving petroleum
independence.
The summit is a component
of Bronson's ambitious "Farm
to Fuel" initiative, a compre-
hensive effort to promote alter-
native energy and help posi-
tion Florida as a leader in the
production of bio-fuels.
"Since the passage of the
Energy Policy Act of 2005,
announcement of the
President's Advanced Energy
Initiative and passage of
Florida's EnergyAct, the inter-
est in renewable energy has
never been greater," Bronson
said. "Our Farm to Fuel
Summit is just one of many


ways that we are trying to
bring the necessary parties
and stakeholders together to
discuss using the state's
renewable resources to


reduce our dependency on
foreign oil and other nonre-
newable sources of energy.
Our ultimate goal is to
enhance the market for, and

What is balloon-assisted sinus surgery?


X1


MICHAEL PATETE, M.D.
WELL-BEING COLUMNIST,


The nose and paranasal
sinuses are lined with respira-
tory mucosa that produces
mucous and provides filtra-
tion and humidification to
the air we breathe. When
inflammatory conditions ex-
ist more blood supply to these
areas develops and conges-
tion arises. Congested open-
ings to the air containing
sinuses can lead to blockages
that may lead to infections.
The common cold is an
inflammatory insult to the
nose brought on by respirato-
ryviruses. Its natural course is
symptoms of mucous pro-
duction fever and congestion.
that peak around the fifth to
seventh day then tapers to


resolution. Symptoms that
progress past this are sugges-
tive of a bacterial sinus infec-
tion that requires medica-
tions for drainage assistance
as well as an antibiotic. When
the drainage passages are.
blocked beyond what med-
ications can assist with,
drainage procedures are ned-.
essary to open the sinuses to.
promote emptying of the.
mucous to lead to a healthy
sinus.
The drainage procedures
necessary to improve an open
drain pipe are septoplasty,
turbinate reduction and
endoscopic sinus surgery
with or without balloon assis-
tance. Catheter directed
opening of the sinuses is usu-
ally done in conjunction with
one or in a combination with
one of the other procedures.
The goal is to provide an
opening to the sinus for
drainage while maintaining
as much of the natural
mucosa and anatomy as pos-
sible.
Once the drainage proce-
dure has been performed irri-
gations of the nose are neces-
sary with nasal saline to pro-
mote the body to remove the


mucous as efficiently as pos-
sible until the antibiotics have
a chance to rid the nose of the
offending bacteria. Once the
infection is controlled and a
healthy sinus is reestablished,
the patient should experience
less infections, more rapid
clearance of an infection, but
they will not experience ces-
sation of secretions that are
present from other causes.
Allergic rhinitis and non-
, allergic rhinitis will continue
to produce congestion and
:,mucous production beyond a
surgical procedure. In some
cases the respiratory cilia of
the sinus may have been irre-
versibly damaged by infec-
tion leading to mucous stasis
in an open sinus.
In general, most patients
that suffer from three to five
infections per year or have an
infection that has lingered
past six to 12 weeks will see
significant improvements
after a drainage procedure
has been performed.

Michael Pafete, MD., can
be reached at the Ear, Nose,
Throat and Sinus Center, PA.,

Doc Robb's last lesson was the most important of all


DICK HARRISON



When I entered. high
school, I.was a midget among
giants, still a kid physically.
Everyone was given a nick-
name. Mine was "Peanut,"
and I hated it. Still, I reasoned,
it could be worse. For exam-


pie, there was "Liverlips" Mill-
er. If anyone fitted his nick-
name, it was Millerl He had a
mouth that, even when it was
closed, seemed to cover half
his face, and it -was seldom
closed. In class or out, he was
ready to interrupt and add his
two cents of over-valued cur-
rency.
He hung around the group
of jocks and BMOCs who
were class leaders, tolerated
because of his loutish size but
never, I think, actually accept-
ed or really liked.
The leader among leaders
was Don Erlbeck, the strong-
est of the group, and Liverlips
aspired to be his Jester-in-
waiting.
Meaty and tall, given to


paunch at 17, Miller was a
bully to; boot.'He kne\\ his
nickname well but not many,
were foolish enough to use it
to his face.
He sat across the aisle from
me in Doc Robb's chemistry
class. Doc was teaching his
last classes in the final semes-
ter before his forced retire-
ment at age 72. He did his
level best to be fair to every-
one, no matter how annoy-
ing, and by example taught
character as well as chem-
istry, emphasizing the impor-
tance of making right choices
to boys who would soon be
confronting them without a
textbook or teacher as guide.
The day before our final,
Doc Robb was conducting a


review of potential exam
material. lMiller was in top
form, interrupting constantly
with stupid jokes and rude
comments and Doc was
teaching around him. Per-
haps he felt there was no
point in discipline when both
he and Miller would be gone
in a few days.
Miller was making it diffi-
cult to hear and others were
stirring uneasily in their seats.
I was angry because I needed
the review. Finally, it was too
much. I stood and looked
Miller in the eyes, trying hard
to keep the quaver out of my
voice: "If you know all of this,
why don't you shut up or
leave the room. There are oth-
ers who' need to hear what


Doc Robb is saying." sat
down, shaking, surprised at
my temerity, thinking "What
a dumb thing to do now I'll
be lucky to live to take the
exam."
Miller was surprised too,
but not speechless. His first
reaction was to make loud
kissing sounds on the back of
his hand and when this failed
to elicit a laugh he growled:
"You Peanut, you'll regret this
when I catch you after class!"
It was then Don Erlbeck
stood up and emphasizing
each word, said, "If you go
after him, you'll have to come
through me first LIVER-
UPS."
Liverlips never uttered
another sound and spent the


rest of class studiously exam-
ining the top of his desk. He
didn't come after me and,
thankfully, Doc Robb made
no comment about the inci-
dent to me as the class filed
out. I managed an an 85 on
the final, about consistent
with the rest of the semester.
I never saw Doc after the
exam, but his last lesson for'
me came when our report
cards were handed to us. My
grade was the best I had ever
received in any subject: a per-
fect 100 percent for the year.
I knew I hadn't earned it
academically and so did Doc.
Teaching character to the last,
it was just his way of saying,
"Thanks, you made a 'perfect'
choice."

Coming to 'terms' with computer lingo

SUNDAY
AUG. 13,2006


All people are creative in their own way


Several years ago one of my
friends saw how much work
went into explaining my col-
umns to someone else, then
having it put in a computer,
etc. She was determined to
get me to try her computer.
(This was before my sight
failed me.) The whole saga
became so funny that it just
seemed worth sharing.
She started with "just put
your hand on the mouse."'
Well, I am afraid of mice. My
hand was moving away in-
stead of toward the mouse,
and she couldn't figure out
why. So I asked why I needed
to touch the mouse.
Her answer was, "to get
into the Web." Well, I don't
know if I am more afraid of
mice or spiders, but neither
one are very appealing. We
were getting nowhere fast.
She was passionate about
getting me on her computer,
and my fears were growing by


the minute. My fears had
nothing to do with technolo-
gy, just mice and spiders. I'm
sure some of you have been
there.
My children all rely heavily
on computers and technolo-
gy, so I figured I had to learn a
little more. One, way was to
create my own dictionary of
computer terms so I could get
them into my head. See what
you think:
* Cursor Someone who did
not go to church when they
should, or a button you push
when the computer does
something dumb.
* Bluetooth I guess that's a
toothache that hurts pretty
bad.
* Megabytes The way my
children used to eat.
* Diskette A bouncy bee-
bop version of a disk.
* Screen Saver One of those
aluminum grids that makes
sure the screen doesn't get
pushed in.
* Hard drive Why I don't
use one, because it's just too
hard.
* Virus Something you take
to the doctor, might be seri-
ous.
* Memory I hear they fail
like mine does, so what's the
point?
It seems that most people
just can't get along without
computers any more. My
daughter uses them to give
her lectures to medical stu-

dents. One son used his for
luminance so he could fill the
kerosene heater in Afghan-
istan, and the other frequent-
ly travels with two computers
(to the chagrin of those going'
through airport, security be-
hind him).
Now they seem to be nam-
ing these things after fruit and
all kinds of things. One son
has a blackberry and the
other son says he will never
have one. But that son has a
cell phone that takes pictures
at 1.3 mega pixels. What on
Earth does all that mean and
why would someone want to
carry blackberries around in
their pocket? I dunno!
When we moved to Big
Rapids, Mich., we told the
operator. what number we
wanted to call, and it was only
four digits. Now that was sim-
plicity. The mail got delivered
by the postman not some-
body called "e." We could
write letters anytime we
wanted not just when we
had our computer handy and
the power to run it.
It wasn't as fast but it may
have been more fun.

GUEST COLUMNIST

Create: v. to bring into being;
to cause to exist; to produce
through imaginative effort...
I'm not sure what it is about
the act of "creating" that brings
one such a sense of satisfac-
tion. People often associate
creating only with the creative
arts: writing, painting, com-
posing music, photography,
and the designing of things
such as autos and toasters. I
have heard people say, "Oh, I
don't have a creative bone in
my body." But they do. We all
do.
True, there are those artists
who can stand in front of a
blank canvas and create a mas-
terpiece in oils, pastels, or some
other medium. There are peo-
ple who can sit down at a com-
puter and write a play or a
book, or even a newspaper arti-
cle. But there are also many


folks whose creations take
place in their kitchen, who take
a bit of this, a pinch of that, mix
them together, cook them just
the right amount of-time and
create a mouthwatering dish.
Other folks may not know a pot
from a skillet, yet they can pick
up a crochet hook or knitting
needles and create a sweater or
scarf that is a work of art.
One person stands at his
closet and has a difficult time
deciding what to wear. Another
comes out of that same closet
wearing clothes that create a
"look," which brings approving
glances all day. Some folks cre-
ate a house design. Others dig
the foundation, nail the boards,
and install the plumbing to cre-
ate the house. -
Then along comes someone
else who creates the home
within that house.
Some folk's talent lies not in
creating "things", but rather in
creating a family, a friendship,

an atmosphere. A parent, or a
teacher, often exercises the gift
of creating a life. Take a minute.
Count the creations you have
made today.
The story is told of a man
passing by a site where a large
building was under construc-
tion. He said to a workman,
"What are you doing?" The
workman replied, "I'm cutting
blocks."
The passerby then said to
another man, '"And what are
you doing?" to which the man
replied, "I'm building walls." He
then said to the third workman,
"What are you doing?" The
worker replied, "I am creating a
holy place where men and
women can meet with their
God." Perhaps that's why creat-
ing brings such a sense of satis-
faction. It is when we are creat-
ing something that we are most
like the Creator of everything.
And that is my two cents
worth...

Forget the tour and do Ireland your way
I


BY ANN ALLEN
GUEST WRITER

Imagine Ireland in, sum-
mer, misty and magical. The
views are spectacular until
you turn from that scenic
overlook and get a whiff of
diesel fumes from your idling
tour bus.
Instead of relaxing with
your family, you face a crowd
of strangers and a tight sched-
ule.
Forget that. There's anoth-
er way to go.
Instead of booking a tour,
you can lease your own pri-
vate cottage, rent a car and
have it your way.
I did this recently with my
family, and what a great time
we had. Our cottage was
cheaper and more private
than a motel room or bed-
and-breakfast, plus it provid-
ed the roominess of a house
and the practicality of a
kitchen. Our car gave us the
freedom to go whenever and
wherever we wanted. We
whisked past the parked tour
buses and returned each
evening to our own cozy re-
treat, complete with easy
chairs and gas fireplace.
We chose Killarney, in
County Kerry,-for our base,
right on the famous Ring of
Kerry scenic highway in.
southwest Ireland. I checked
on the Internet. for rental
houses and quickly stumbled
on that language thing: The
Irish call them "self-catering
cottages." No problem,
though. The Irish Tourist
Board has 520 choices for
self-catering places in County
Kerry alone, including 120
around Killarney,. ,
The tourist board rates
these accommodations and
doesn't-list places that aren't
tourist-friendly. Prices vary;
you can book online. You can
book your car, too, and pick it
up at the airport.
We got a cottage on the
grounds of the Cas.tlerosse
Hotel, which gave us access to
the hotel amenities, plus the


expertise of hotel staff. Our
place had a porch with a pic-
nic table, two bedrooms, two
baths, kitchen and a great
room overlooking woods and
a golf course. The hotel dining
room offered a postcard-wor-
thy view of the lakes and
mountains of Killarney Na-
tional Park, plus decent food
when we didn't feel like cook-
ing or choosing among Kill-
arney's wide variety of restau-
rants.
Our typical days involved
either driving around the
region, exploring the national
park or shopping and pub-
bing in Killarney, a town of
some 12,000 people (not
counting tourists) reputed to
have more than 60 pubs.
My favorite spot in Kill-
arney was a crowded, one-
room store called Variety
Sounds ("The Complete Mu-
sic Shop").
Laid-back proprietor Pat
O'Connor offered a selection
of Irish tunes on CD and
plenty of instruments for
making the music yourself-
everything from harmonicas
and accordions to bagpipes
and that intriguing, flat Irish
drum, called a bodhran, that
often carries the rhythm in
traditional Irish bands.
My son bought an $80
bodhran and got a free lesson
tossed in from O'Connor,
who nonchalantly picked it
up and began beating it with
his palm and a little stick. Just
like that, we were transported
to a long-ago age of druids
and bards, feeling the spirit of
Ireland come alive in his
hands. It was pure magic.
Poets for centuries have
tried to capture the heart of
Ireland. I'm no poet, but I'd
sum it up like this: It's old and
it's haunted and everything's
full to brimming with life. It
has its own fresh scent.
We wandered the national
park and saw evergreens that
were easily 5 or 6 feet in diam-
eter. The entire forest floor
was covered in ivy and moss.
In the early morning, we saw

a big Irish deer browsing for
its breakfast, and in the after-
noon we climbed to the tow-
ering Torc Waterfall, then
poked around a half-acre of
spring-blooming rock garden
at a 19th-century mansion
called Muckross House.
Ross Castle, another local
landmark, was open for a tour
that took us back to the 16th
century, and another day trip
took us to a- .000-year-old
standing stone structure call-
ed a "portal dolmen."
"Old" in Ireland is a lot
older than "old" in America.
We also drove around the
southwest coast, where we
saw dozens of tumbledown
rock structures ancient
round forts, tower castles and
little homes that were aban-
doned during the Great


Famine of the 1840s, forgot-
ten dwellings my kids dubbed
"unpotato houses." We saw
seascapes that mixed surf and
stone into a kaleidoscope of
sparkling saltwater spray. We
saw dozens of tiny black-
faced lambs and their shaggy,
plump parents.
We drove narrow streets
through quaint towns busy
with pedestrians. We followed
at least a half-tdozen farm
tractors down winding rural
roads lined with stone walls
and no shoulders. Driving on
the left provided a mild but
constant adrenaline buzz and
sometimes quite a jolt when a
truck loomed up and zoomed
past. But having our own car
let us stop whenever we got
an itch to explore. Anybody
could say, "Pull over!" and it


As far as the eye can see, the green fields of Ireland stretch out like giant quilt, in which every patch is a different shade of green.

Rent a car, rent a cottage
Renting a car and cottage
will give you some insights
iinto evervda\ Irish life. You'll
save money and headaches if
you book your car and cot-
tage online before you leave
for your trip. Here's how:
Most American car rental
firms operate in Ireland:
hertz.ie, budget.ie, thrifty.ie,
avis.ie. We used Dan Dooley,
an Irish company, dan-doo-
ley.ie. You can pick up your
car at the airport; you'll need
your driver's license and a
major credit card.
The Irish drive on the left;
the frequent roundabouts go
clockwise. For pedestrians,
traffic comes from the right.
The driver sits on the
right side of the car; stick-
shifts are left-handed. Most
roads are narrow. Plan to rent
a small car with automatic
transmission.
Gasoline costs about
$4.80 a gallon.
Prices are in euros. Credit
card companies often charge
extra for paying in euros. In
other words, things may cost
more than you think.
To rent a cottage, go to
ireland.ie, Ireland's official
tourist site. Follow the
accommodation links for
self-catering cottages in the,
town or county you want to
visit. (Our cottage was at the
Castlerosse Hotel in Killarney,
castlerossehotel.com.)
Prices include tax, some
of which is refundable to for-
eign tourists.
Grocery stores charge for
tote bags. Take your own.

Our Irish cottage kitchen
had a gadget that boiled water
for tea in a minute flat, but no
coffeemaker. Our little refrig-
erator was just countertop
height.
We had a combination
washer-dryer (all one .unit)
with a clothes container not
much bigger than a lettuce
spinner. ("Use half-load," the
instructions, said.) It ,washed
afid'spin,'but we never got it
to dry.
Our cottage electricity
cost extra, about $6 a day.
The hot water only heated
overnight. If you wanted more
hot water during the day, you
had to give it a boost.
Most cottages aren't air-
conditioned; the Irish open
their windows.
The weather changes
quickly. A hooded jacket beats
hauling an umbrella.

give me snake oil


COURTNEY LINN


There is something in this
world that is scarier than all
horror movies combined. It's
not my bank balance. Nor is it
my laundry pile. It is the
American health care system.
Being one of America's
younger working citizens, I
am noticing a new trend
among employers as of late,
and that is the dissolution of
any kind of health care cover-
age available to their employ-
ees. If we are lucky enough to
get health insurance, it is usu-
ally never .what one would
expect it to be.
I have had the fortunate -
or unfortunate, depending on
how you look at it experi-
ence of having many different
types of jobs. With that comes
a knowledge of health insur-
ance packages available to the
average American worker.
One job I worked at had
insurance that was supple-
mental insurance only. A rep-
resentative at their 800 phone
number said that I should use
this insurance only alongside
my primary insurance. How, if
I didn't have any other insur-
iwnce; Wvodd this plan be sup-
plemental? But supplemental
it was. I used it once to get
some lab work done. It paid
$5 of the total bill. I should
have used the $15 a week I
spent on the plan to pay for
the lab work.
Another job of mine had
great health insurance. Un-


fortunately, the jpb was not in
my field of expertise, nor did it
pay much. Regrettably, I had
to leave the position. Because
the health plan was so great, I
decided to look into COBRA.
COBRA is aptly such: a greedy
little snake poised to strike at
your wallet. While my health
plan once cost me $75 a
month, leaving my job and
enacting my COBRA rights
would have cost me $375 a
month. My dental plan, on
the other hand, cost me only
$12 to COBRA, only $3 more
than what I had been paying
for while working for the
company. Explain that one,
Congress.
My detour to COBRA in-
surance for my dental cover-
age didn't go as well as I had
hoped. After I paid my
COBRA bill, I had to have my
wisdom teeth extracted. I had
to cover the whole bill up
front which has never
made sense to me. (If I could
afford to pay $1,000 for dental
surgery up front, I wouldn't
need to have insurance in the
first place.) Nevertheless, I
charged the bill for which I

was not reimbursed the $500
I was owed. When I contacted
the insurance company, its
representatives were housed
in India. Personally, I have
nothing against Indian work-
ers. What I do have a problem
with is people who are unin-
telligible on the phone who
are supposed to be helping
me. So, you could be from
Pluto and work in customer
'service, but if I can't under-
stand what you are saying to
me, how are you helping me?
Needless to say, I never did
get my 500 bucks back. (I


I


guess I did have the $1,000 up
front to pay for the whole
bill.) I canceled my COBRA
immediately.
Probably the worst experi-
ence I had with health insur-
ance was when I worked for a
holistic health professional.
He claimed he didn't need to
provide any health insurance
for his employees because he
firmly believed he could cure
any and all ailments we could
ever encounter. That's great,
until I get a broken leg. What
would he do, put a mental
cast on my leg?

I am the unfortunate bear-
er of many food allergies, for
which I suffer a great deal of
mockery. He claimed he
could make that all go away.
Simply out of curiosity, I let
him try. If you would like to
know how it turned out, I
have only this to say: Two
years later, if I eat fish, I still
spend the rest of the evening
worshiping at the porcelain
shrine. People should always
be wary of any healer who
says you have to "believe" in
order for his modality to
work.


A viable health insurance
plan in our society has come
to be the Holy Grail of our
millennium. When I lay
awake at night, wondering if
my sniffle will turn into some-
thing a box of tissue cannot
handle, I picture a utopian
society filled with $250
deductibles, $10 co-pays, free
annual check-ups; affordable
prescription drugs and no
more than $500 for an emer-.
gency room visit.

Topical flea control can result in poisoning


Adopt-a-pet


GRACE JOYCE
PET COLUMNIST

With the summer heat and
an increase in fleas at this
time of year it's important to
understand the different
types of flea control products
and how they can affect your
pet.
There are more than 21
types of products available
that control fleas on your dog


or cat and although they are
applied in thesame way, they
do not all contain the same
chemical. I personally know
of animals in our local area
that were poisoned and died
from the application of over-
the-counter flea control..
Many flea control products
contain the same active
ingredient as household pes-
ticide products including
roach killer, flying insect
killer, and household fumiga-
tors and foggers. As a respon-
sible pet owner you should
know that flea control prod-
ucts are a primary source of
exposure that can lead to poi-
soning in small animals.
Many, of these products
contain "permethrins" (tetra-
methrins, allemethrins) as
the active ingredient. The
problem with permethrin is
that after application the
chemical is absorbed into the
animals' bloodstream. On


insects these chemicals stim-
ulate the central nervous sys-
tem resulting in convulsions,
tremors, paralysis and death.
In small animals the result
can lead to respiratory dis-
tress, convulsions, and death.
This class of chemicals is list-
ed in the top 25 agents caus-
ing poisoning in animals by
the National Animal Poison
Control Center. In July 1999,
an article in the Journal of
The American Veterinary,
Medical Association reports
toxicosis in cats treated with
permethrin products.
The good news is there are
safe and effective flea control
products available. These
alternatives do not contain,
permethrin and therefore are
not absorbed into your pets'
bloodstream. The active ing-
redients for these products
include imidacloprid, ftpro-
nil and selamectin and are
available from your veteri-


narian with brand names
such as Advantage, Frontline,
and Revolution. Though they
may seem a little more
expensive at first, it's worthy
to note that not only are these
products safer for your pet,
they are so effective they
eliminate the need to treat
your house and yard for fleas
saving extra costs in addition-
al pesticide products.
When it comes to the safe-
ty and well being of your pet
they are counting on you to
protect them. Check with
your veterinarian for alterna-
tive products if you are using
over-the-counter flea control
products and be sure to read
the "active ingredient" part of
the label.

COOKIN' from Page 1
was listed to be cooked for 20
minutes.
The hostess thought this
was a little too fast for a chick-
en dish. After a quick recalcu-
lation, they added 45 minutes
to the cooking time.
Toms said that all of the
dinners have been great en-
tertainment.
"It is interesting to see the
husbands cook," she said.
She said that a few of the
men have never touched a
spatula let alone try to make
something foreign. Half of the
male spouses in this group
cook very well, and the other
half have only tried to cook
once or twice.
"That's what makes it in-
teresting," Russell said.
Everyone has to cook
something.
"It doesn't matter what it
looks like afterward, as long
as it tastes good," she said.
The overall opinion of the
group is that, as long as you
are having a good time, and
the food is interesting, then


you have accomplished your
goal and the evening is a suc-


cess.
Everyone knows tricks and


GOAT CHEESE AND CARAMELIZED
ONION TART
Ingredients:
3 sheets puff pastry
1 and 1/2 Spanish onions, thinly sliced
4 and 1/2 teaspoons butter
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3/8 cup balsamic vinegar
4 and 7/8.ounce goat cheese
3 Tomatoes

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

1. Prepare two tomatoes (halved) by roasting them on baking
paper, cut side up, in the oven, until semi-soft, about 30 minutes,
2. While the tomatoes cook, saute the sliced onions until soft. Add
three tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and all the sugar and cook
until the liquid has reduced and onions are soft and caramelized.
3. While Onions are cooking cut puff pastry sheets in half to form
four triangles. Trim the triangle by 1 cm and place the 1 cm strips
around the very edge of the triangles to form a case for filling. Use
a little cooking spray on the edge to bond the pastry.
4. Place the puff pastry in the oven and brown very slightly for 5-
10 minutes (placed on rack under the tomatoes).
5. Arrange sauteed onions evenly on the semi-cooked pastry fol-
lowed by'chunks of roasted tomato and goat's cheese on top.
6. Bake at 40b degrees In a preheated oven for 15 minutes or until
pastry is crisp and golden.

By KIM COOL
VENICE GONDOLIER
FEATURES EDITOR
Details make a
home special. An
estate home in
The Estates area
,of North Port, east of Inter-
state 75, is filled with them.
From the butcher block
island in the kitchen to the
hand-made shelves and
rolling ladder in the library
and the home's wraparound
covered porch, the charming
yellow home commands its
spacious wooded lot, which
measures more than 5 acres.
Built in 1992, the 3,220-
square-foot air-conditioned
three-bedroom, two and one-
half bath home has a three-car
detached garage and a four-
car detached garage. The
smaller garage includes a
breezeway and second-level
storage space.
The second garage could be
used as is by a car or motorcy-
cle aficionado or reworked as
office or studio space. It
includes a workshop and par-
tially finished second floor.
There also is a parking for RVs,
boats or grazing land for hors-
es.
The present owner has
adapted an upstairs bedroom
in the main house as an art
studio and workshop space.
A custom staircase, which
branches in two directions
leads to the second floor,
which, in addition to two bed-

Why are other builders just giving money awa


" 'h5 I1 A


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.


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.

Rossetti's vision: Building an accessible 'Green' house


Rosemarie Rossetti, Ph.D.,
interim nationally known
speaker and advocate for
people with disabilities with
her husband Mark Leder, are
leading the way in home
construction. Their current
project, the Universal Design
Living
Laboratory (www.UDLL.com),
will showcase to builders and
the public how universal
design and green building are
elements that should be
included in all new homes
and remodeling projects.
The Universal Design Living
Laboratory, to be built in
metropolitan Columbus, Ohio
will serve as a national model
showcasing how this marriage
of elements can take place.
Universal design and
"green" building design are
totally compatible
approaches in home
construction." Green" is an
approach to building homes
that conserve-natural
resources-and highlight
environmental quality. These
homes are healthier in terms
of air and water quality. The
products used to build these
homes emit fewer health
endangering gases or volatile
organic compounds (VOC).
Tlese gases are often
produced from paints, stains,
carpeting, wall paper, flooring
adhesives, plywood, solvents,
and synthetic fabrics.


Posemarie Possetti APh.D. shares her vision
in Universal. Design Jiving laboratoryy


Universal design is a
framework for the design of
living spaces and products
benefiting the widest possible
range of people in the widest
range of situations without
special or separate design. It
provides for accessibility by
removing barriers such as
steps and integrating features
like wider doors and hallways
to, allow people who use
wheelchairs equal access to
the house and rooms in the
house.
The Universal Design Living
Laboratory will include these
"green" elements:
Recycled and/or renew-
able resources in flooring and
insulation products.
Appliances, lighting,
heating, and cooling systems
will be selected to
save energy and be more
economical to operate.
Integrates as much natural
light as possible by installing
windows, skylights, sun
tunnels, glass block, and
dormers.
Energy consumption will
be reduced by wall and ceiling
insulation improvements.
Products used to build this
home emit fewer health
endangering gases or volatile
organic compounds (VOC).

These gases are often
produced from paints, stains,
carpeting, wall paper, flooring
adhesives, plywood, solvents,
and synthetic fabrics.
The U.S. Green Building
Council, (www.usgbc.org) the
nation's foremost coalition of
leaders from across the


building industry, promotes
buildings that are environ-
mentally responsible, prof-
itable, and healthy places to
live and work. This non-profit
organization has a pilot
program in place to certify
homes based on their Leader-
ship in Energy and Environ-
mental Design (LEED)
certification program. This
program is a voluntary
initiative that promotes the


transformation of the main-
stream home building indus-
try towards more sustainable
practices. UDLL will submit
an application for LEED
certification.
Home buyers and remodel-
ers concerned about living in
healthier homes, and saving
money through lower water,
electricity and gas bills are
often concerned about the
initial cost of "green" prod-


ucts. These products are
more prevalent than in the
past, and are highlighted in
manufacturers' marketing
materials.
Price points for "green"
products do not always have a
higher price tag associated
with them.
In view of the health
benefits, energy savings, and
stewardship of the earth,
building "green" is a better
