Gate blamed for



prisoner escape



from Venice jail


Touchdown!


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Blame a wheeled, manual-
ly operated gate at the Venice
jail, not the arresting officer,
in the escape of a handcuffed
prisoner Wednesday.
'After a debriefing, Chief
(Julie) Williams made an
immediate decision that the
gate should close automati-
cally instead of the officer
having to close it manually,"
VPD Sgt. Tom McNulty said.
"She is getting prices on that
now."
McNulty said a gate that
closed automatically would
have prevented the prisoner
from escaping after being
taken out of the patrol car.
"Once the gate is closed,
there is no place to run," he
said. "It's a cage."
This cage, located immedi-
ately behind the jail, is also
known as the "sally port"
although no one at the VPD
seemed to know why.
According to answers.com,
a sally port is an archaic term
derived from the French, and
refers to a gate in a tbrtifica-
don designed for sorties.
Sally Port
The sally port at the jail
provides access to an
enclosed area adjacent to the
jail input door. It is surround-
ed by a 10-foot high chain-
link fence with razor wire on
top.
Handcuffed prisoners are
brought into the sally port in
the back of the patrol car, in
handcuffs; taken out of the
car by the officer; and led
through the door into the jail
input area. It is done routine-
ly many times a day and
night, hundreds of times a
year without incident.
Wednesday's prisoner
escape was the first in recent
memory, according to Mc-


Nulty.
Officer followed
procedure
After being arrested, for
running a stop !sign ,and
handcuffed with !his hands
behind him, Michael Lee
Stewart, 33, of Dade City, was
taken to jail by Officer Mark
Jarvis,
"When he got' to the sta-
tion, the prisoner had the
cuffs in front of him, and
Jarvis wasn't going to uncuff
him and recuff him," McNulty
said. "As soon as he (Jarvis)
got out of the car, he spun
around and took off. We find
no policy violations on the
side of the officer."
A full-scale, manhunt was
launched about 1 p.m. with
police dogs and the sheriffs
helicopter.
VPD officer Ben Adams,
who participated in the un-
successful two-hour .search,
was off-duty and on his way
home in his personal car
when he s'aw the suspect
about 3:15 ,p.m., still cuffed,
walking down Pinebrook
Road. ,,.
Adams made an immedi-
ate arrest.
The really bad guys
While hundreds of prison-
ers are brought to the Venice
jail every year without inci-
dent, some are treated differ-
endtl from others.
"When we get a rapist or
murderer, a really bad guy.
normal procedure is to sur-
round the car with officers,"
McNulty said. "That way,
somebody besides the arrest-
ing officer can close the gate
and watch for trouble."
McNulty said, however,
that day-to-day arrests are
usually handled with one offi-
cer.

Rule changes could affect pollution cases


State authorities have created an exemption
process that allows lower oxygen levels, critical to
marine species. Environmental groups have sued
a federal agency for allowing the regulatory
loophole.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A recent decision by Flor-
ida authorities to lower water-
quality standards in some
creeks and rivers should raise
a red warning flag in Sarasota
County and others that have
unresolved pollution issues,
according to an environmen-


tal consortium that has chal-
lenged the change in court.
"If you live in Sarasota and
have watched your favorite
swimming or fishing spot go
downhill over the past few
years," said Florida Clean
Water Network Director Lin-
da Young, "you may be won-
dering why nobody is doing
anything to stop this."


On July 13, the Clean Water
Network and St. lohns River-
keeper organization sued the
U.S. Environmental Protec-
tion Agency for. allowing
Florida to create a regulatory
exemption that allows re-
duced dissolved oxygen levels
in surface waters.
Adequate oxygen levels are
a critical component in the
survival of marine species
that inhabit rivers, creeks and
other surface waters. Florida
Department of Envirdn-
mental Protection officials
proposed the rule change in
January. It was approved by
the EPA in May.
The lower standard was


immediately allowed on a
portion of the St. Johns River
south of Jacksonville where a
large paper mill and more
than 30 sewage treatment
plants have state permits to
discharge high volumes of
waste into surface waters.
Sarasota County is cur-
rently wrestling with water
quality issues on more than a
dozen of its creeks and rivers.
It is spending $861,000 to
develop a computer program
that identifies what the nutri-
ent levels of local waters
should be, and what they are.
But not dissolved oxygen.

Stelzer: Attention to detail is her secret to success


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER

Venice City Clerk Lori
Stelzer is fondly referred to as
the "Red Pen Queen" by her
colleagues at city hall.
Notorious for finding mis-
tdkes in the minutes and
reports of other departments,
she is now called on by them
to proofread written materi-
als before final publication.
Stelzer's proofreading abil-
ity is just one example of her
attention to detail and dedi-
cation to excellence in every
facet of her work.
SShe started with the city 17
years ago as an administra-
tive secretary in the planning
department. By the time she
applied for an opening as
executive secretary to then-
City Clerk Bernie Simanskey a
couple of years later, Stelzer
was already well known
around city hall for her com-
puter skills, accuracy and
energetic personality.
Simanskey selected her,
and then quickly began men-
toring her to take on more

responsibility.
"He really took me under
his wing. and began teaching
me everything he knew," she
said. "Within a few months,
he designated me as his
deputy clerk, which meant I


would act on his behalf in his
absence and was able to
assist with many of his duties.
"Since he .was making
plans to retire, he started
grooming me to take over his
job. But there was no guaran-


tee I would be selected for it
when the time came, because
the city clerk, as a charter offi-
cer of the city, must be
approved for appointment by
a majority of the city council.
"That became a very con-
troversial situation at the time
because some council mem-
bers didn't feel I met the min-
imum qualifications I had
only one year of college, and
no previous experience as a
city clerk.
"But Bernie was deter-
mined. He thought I had the
ability and the right attitude
to do the job, and that I could
quickly learn whatever I had
to know. Fortunately, Mayor
Harry Case also took up the
cause, and in February 1993,
he appointed me as acting
city clerk. Six months later,
after serving what amounted
to a 'probationary' period to
prove my ability, the city
council unanimously approv-
ed my becoming the full-
fledged city clerk."
Many jobs in one
"City Clerk" is a term of art


referring to a high-level ad-
ministrative position respon-
sible for a number of very
specific and specialized mu-
nicipal functions. In the city
of Venice organization, as
with many municipalities, the
city clerk is a charter officer
who answers directly to the
elected legislative body rather
than to the city manager.
So, what does a city clerk
do? Even a partial list of duties
is exhausting to consider.
For one, Stelzer serves as
the city's supervisor of elec-
tions. Whenever there is an
election involving city offi-
cials or referendums, she co-
ordinates the process.
"We are busy right now,"
she said, "because of the elec-
tions coming up on Nov. 7.
Since the elections for mayor
and city council are nonparti-
san, we don't get involved in
the primaries, but we still
have a lot to do in the mean-
time.

who requests a filing package

Venice, North Port pledge more coo


BY MARY APOSTOLU
STAFF WRITER


Friday, the silence was bro-
ken.
For the first time irn about
10 years the governing bodies
of the cities of Venice and
North Port sat down and dis-
cussed their issues ani con-
cerns, with the common
thread being how they can
work together. I
Teri Hansen, CEO, of Gulf
Coast Community Ifound-
ation of Venice, facilitated the
meeting, held at the Venetian
Golf & River Club.
"I am here to help you con-
nect, so we can allbe better..
together," Hansen said.
The elected officials agreed
the decade since the two
municipalities have gotten
together is too long, consider-
ing what they have in com-
mon.
"We're your neighbors -
like kissin' cousins, almost,"
said North Port City Com-,
missioner Rue Berryman.
My hometown
As part of the session,.
Hansen asked the partici-
pants their favorite thing
about their city. Many said
they like the hometown feel
of their respective town.
Venice City Manager Mar-
ty Black said, "the quality and
consistency of Venetians and
their values."
North Port City Com-
missioner Vanessa Carusone
likened her city to a village,
saying, "It's still a small-town
feeling; the younger popula-
tion is capable of vision."
Venice Vice Mayor Vicki
Taylor talked about a "won-
derful sense of community;
the level of active profession-
als and volunteerism gives

Barbara Gross, North Port
City Commissioner, said, "I've
enjoyed watching some of the
changes."
Defining moment
The two city's representa-
tives were asked to focus on
their city, and define 'the
issues they consider most
important.

to meet its needs.
Collaboration by the cities
could help solve both issues.
Venice City Council mem-
ber Rick Tacy said, "Com-
municating about projects in
the works goes a long way.
"Recently, you read in the
Venice Gondolier Sun, the
positive outcome regarding
contract negotiations bet-
ween the city of Venice and
the firefighters union. None
of this would have been.p6s-
sible if the city had not been
able to compete fairly and
effectively for top-quality,
skilled professionals.
"The two cities are literally
drawing from the same labor
pool. Competition for big
development between the
cities draws decisive lines;
how could we work together
to attract more highly paid,
desirable jobs to the area?"
Tacy said.
The' participants, agreed
that there are several means
of accomplishing their goals:
communication: regular joint
meetings; collaborating on
projects of regional impor-
tance and urging the passage
of legislation giving cities
more power.

School district staff to research field trip issues


BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Are Sarasota Countypublic
school students limited in the
field trips they can take
because of the school bus
transportation schedule?
That's a question school
board members have asked
district officials to research.
Superintendent Gary
Norris has proposed that
Associate Superintendent
Lori White and Acting.
Associate Superintendent
Scott Lempe gather informa-
tion on that issue and make a
report to the board. ,
During the Aug. 8 work
session for the board, Chair
Carol Tdd broached the sub-
ject, asking, "Is transportation
driving the engine in what
students see, or is the curricu-
lum driving.the engine?"
For example, Todd said, if
children are taken to see a
performance that lasts from 1
to 3 p.m., 'Are we taking chil-
dren out at 2 o'clock and
putting them back on the
bus?"
.White responded, "Cert-
.ainly there are some limita-
tions" in scheduling field'
trips, because of the window
of time buses and drivers are


available, when they are not
transporting students to and
from schools.
Another factor for consid-
eration, White said, is the ris-
ing expense of fuel, not just
for district buses but for char-
ters as well. Arts groups in
Sarasota and other organiza-
tions such as the Junior
League, White continued,
have made a practice of sub-
sidizing field trips related to
the arts. She pointed out that
the district requires every
field trip to have some con-
nection to the curriculum.
Help wanted
Board member Kathy
Kleinlein suggested that.
groups allied with the arts,
along with community busi-
nesses, might be willing' to'
purchase surplus buses from
the district to assist with
transportation for field trips.
"Could we explore that
possibility?" she asked.
Norris suggested that if the
board wants to make changes
in policy regarding field trips,
it first needs to identify what
it considered to be "high-pri-
ority or necessity field trips."
Then, he said, staff could'
determine the costs of such
outings.


"We have lots of teachers
and lots of students, and
probably there's lots of differ-
ent ideas on what's the best
field trip," he said.
Kleinlein noted that
Willard Daggett, president of
the International Center for
Leadership in Education, had
told teachers and district offi-
cials attending the recent
back-to-school rally that stu-
dents who appreciate the arts
"do better in schools."
"I think it's important for
children to have these experi-
ences"' Todd said. "I think the
curriculum should be the dri-
ver, not buses .and the dri-
vers."
Kleinlein agreed with
Todd.
Norris said that White and
Lempe would work with the
principals and district trans-
portation staff to accumulate
data about the field trips' that
have been taking place. He
'cautioned, however, that it
"could take a fair amount of
time to pull that together."
During that process, Todd
said she also wanted them to
find out how much effect the
scheduling of the' Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test for students had on the
timing of field trips.


Osprey revitalization phase two commences


BYGERALDA. ROGOVIN.
CORRESPONDENT


Most of the' public's atten-
tion to Osprey's revitalization
has been focused on the Bay
Street Village & Town Center
and the 'Wal-Mart
SuperCenter. They occupy a
59-acre tract of land on the
east side of U.S. 41 at Bay
Street that was assembled
over a three-year period by
developer Henry Rodriguez.
Bay Street Village will take
up 42 acres, and will include
535 condominiums ,and
townhouses and 115,00C
square feet of retail 'space,
offices and restaurants. The
proposed 25,000-square fool
Osprey public library will
center the area. The Wal-Mari
opened in October 2005, on
the remaining 11 acres.
Demolition ofa trailer park
and a flea market at Bdy Street
and the highway in early May
initiated the building of the
shopping and residential
'community.
A second phase of the revi-
talization plan has begun to
emerge on the highway's west
side. Allocated as. space for
professional and business
office buildings, the stretch
on U.S. 41 from Bay Acres
Avenue south to the intersec-


. tioh of Bay Avenue and
Sarabay Road. has become
active.
A mid-October opening of
i the Osprey Executive Park at
Bay and Sarabay is anticipat-
r ed. Stephen Svirsky, a manag-
t ing partner of The Rand
i Group LLC of Sarasota, the
developers, said that 18 of 20
condominium offices have

housed in six one-story build-
ings totaling 26,000 square
feet of space. He said that
small businesses, including
an insurance, broker and a
) physical therapist, will be the
occupants. i
Svirsky's group sells the
units for $2.50 a square foot
1 for the shell only. Each buyer
must complete the interior,
1 which he said could range in
cost from $40 to $67 a square
foot. The office park will have
space for 107 vehicles and a
- retention pond. The entrance

A half-mile to the north on
the 'west side, at Bay Acres
Avenue, developers of a 1.9-
acre site submitted a prelimi-
nary plan to .'the Osprey
Revitalization Committee in
April. It proposed a two-story
building to be used by a
branch office of the Fifth
Third Bank and commercial
space for offices. The com-
mittee opposed the plan
because of concern that a
proposed right-turn lane
.from Bay Acres Avenue south!
onto U.S. 41 would increase
traffic significantly.
Bay Street Village was
planned as the centera..fdt
Osprqyja former fishing vil-.
lage. The decision by Sarasota
County to place the public
library in the midst of a com-
mercial development 'was
endorsed and pushed by the
revitalization committee.
Since adoption of the revi-
talization plan in 1999, both
bodies have been putting the
various pieces of it together.
The committee's charter
expires in 2009.

requirements with an open
pond, rather than use under-
ground piping, Eveland said.
Abutting property owners
on Bay Vista Road have been
concerned with the proposed
building's proximity to their
backyards. Although the zon-
ing code does not include
language requiring awall sep-
arating their property from
the bank site, residents insist
on it.
Eveland said he would rec-
ommend that the bank erect
a 6-foot-high. masonry wall
across the rear of its property.
It had been stipulated in the
site plan of the previous
developer.
According to. residents,
traffic on Bay Acres Avenue
has increased significantly
since .the opening last
October of the Wal-Mart
SuperCenter on the east side
of U.S. 41, directly opposite.
Eveland estimated that the
permitting process and
required approvals of the pro-
posed site plan, which would
involve reviews by the county
planning commission and
the board of county commis-
sioners, would take from 18 to
24 months.


Cough! Cough! Red tide is in the air


STAFF REPORT

A touch of red tide was in

"It's in again. We were
down on the porch working
and we caught it," said
Audrey Grant, who lives on

ing, there were no reported ill
effects from red tide on any of
the county's beaches.
Red tide, a bloom of micro-
scopic algae that typically
occurs in summer along
Florida's West Coast, has been
lingering in varying amounts
in the area in recent weeks.
Red tide in high concentra-
tions attacks the nervous sys-
tem of fish, causing fish kills
and contaminating oysters
and clams. The mist from the
algae also can cause watery
eyes,' coughing and itchy
throats in humans.
For the most part, the
bloom of tide has been mini-
mal along Manasota Key this
week. It's.still around, however.
, Concentrations of red tide:
dan move in and out, of an
area depending on factors'
such as wind, tides and water
currents. Thus, it is particular-
ly hard to predict its tenden-
cies from one day to the next.
The National Oceanic and.
Atmospheric Administration,
posted the following report
on its Web site Thursday
afternoon: .
"In Sarasota 'County,


patchy low, impacts (of red
tide) are possible through
Monday. In Charlotte, Lee
and northern Colliericoun-
'ties, patchy very low impacts
are possible through Monday.
Reports of dead fish and dis-
colored water are possible."
The Florida Fish and
' Wildlife Research Institute Web
site reported that water sam-
ples collected Monday in
Pinellas, Manatee and Sarasota,
counties detected the presence
of red tide at medium concen-
trations as far north as New
Pass Inlet in Sarasota County.
Medium concentrations were
also detected at Manasota
Beach and off of Venice. No
riew red tide related fish kill
reports lhad been, received
sinceAug. 11.

"It is hard to model,"
explained Theresa Connor,
the county's water resources
general manager. "The crite-
ria across the nation for dis-
solved oxygen is 5 milligrams
per liter of water, but we have
sloughs that move slowly
through flat wetland areas
and drop below 1 milligram."
Pollution redefined
Portions of the Myakka
River have dissolved oxygen


levels that fall below 5 mil-
ligrams, which means the
county might ask for relief
from federal and state stan-
dards under the new rule.
"What we try to determine
is whether the low oxygen lev-
els are man-induced or nat-
ural," Connor said.
Area water bodies of con-
cern include: Alligator Creek
(nutrients); Blackburn Bay (nu-
trients); Catfish Creek (nu-
trients); Clower Creek (coli-


form); Curry Creek (nutrients);
Elligraw Creek (coliform, dis-
solved oxygen, nutrients);
Forked Creek (nutrients); Got-
tfried Creek (nutrients, dis-

River (coliform); Lower Myak-
ka River (coliform, dissolved
oxygen, nutrients); North
Creek (nutrients); Roberts Bay
(nutrients); South Creek (nutri-
ents); and West Clark Lake
(nutrients).


"If you own a business on
one of the beaches around
Sarasota," Young said, "you are
definitely hoping someone will
do something to stop the pollu-
tion that's causing red tide to
plague near shore waters. But
instead of stopping it, the state
has made several attempts to
keep it flowing." .
An environmental consor-
tium that included the Clean
Water Network sued the EPA
in 2002 for allowing Florida to


adopt a surface water clean-
up plan that permitted high
nutrient levels in some sur-
face waters. It won a 2005 fed-
eral appeals court judgment.
"The U.S. Clean Water Act
requires states to stop excessive
pollution and make sure that
the waters you fish and swim in
are clean enough to do these
things," Young said. "Florida
has tried to redefine pollution
so most of our polluted waters
will be considered clean."

STELZER '


to qualify them as a candi-
date. It is quite a large pack-
age of material to review with
them procedures, restric-
tions, time frames and espe-
cially the details of the cam-
paign finance reports.
"The candidate orienta-
tion is very detailed, but it
gives me a chance to get to
know each candidate thor-
oughly I really enjoy it."
Her job only extends to
helping candidates sign up
and getting the ballots count-
ed, however.
"One thing that is not
included in my role is filing
complaints against candi-
dates. People call me alleging
various violations residen-
cy, campaign signs and fi-
nances but I have to tell
them they must file the com-
plaint themselves if they feel
something illegal or unethical'
has been done in a cam-.
paign."
Records
Another part of the job is
being the records custodian
for the city.
"This office," said Stelzer,
"is responsible for the records
in,.evern city department
except police. Although each,
department keeps its tifive
files at its olin location, the
state's open records law
requires that inactive records
be retained for certain peri-
ods of time."
A large area of the second
floor at city hall consists of the
records, mail and copy
rooms, where a records
supervisor and records spe-
cialist handle the day-to-day
operations on behalf of the
city clerk. The records section
consists not only of hard-


copy paper files, but also a
collection of microfiche cop-
ies and documents that have
been scanned into the com-
puter system for easy search
and reference.
"One of the items we're
requesting in the next fiscal
budget," Stelzer said, "is a trial
version of a uniform filing
system consisting of stan-
dardized software, filing cabi-
nets and file classifications.
"We're going to start with
just four departments on a
trial basis. If the $11,000 bud-
geted is approved, the first
changes will come in my
office, the city manager's,
administrative services, and
planning and zoning. If the
system works well in those
departments over the next
few months, we will recom-
mend expanding it through-
out the city.
'"After the initial invest-
ment of getting everyone fil-,
ing the same way, we feel the
system will enable us to be
much more efficient with
storing and locating files as
needed."
Council meetings
The :most visible, public
part of the city clerk's job is in
each meeting of the city
council. Stelzer sits right be-
hind City Manager Marty
Black, and alongside one of
her recording secretaries who
runs the recording equip-
ment.
Stelzer's is the voice you
hear leading the council and
audience in prayer at the
beginning of each meeting.
."When I first started," she
said, "that was the thing that
made me the most nervous.

The interests Lori and
Bruce share, besides their 10-
year-old daughter, Kaitlyn
(whose birthday happens to
be today, Sunday), are fishing,
going to movies, eating out
and family time together.
Bruce has two adult chil-
dren Kristin in Sarasota
and Mark in Englewood -
and other family members
who live in Punta Gorda, so
they are all close enough to
visit on a regular basis.
, Since most of Lori's imme-
diate family is still in their
hometown of Hawkins, Wis.
- except for her oldest broth-
er who lives in Pennsylvania
-she is not able to see them
as often. .
By the time Lori graduated
from Ladysmith-Hawkins
High School, she had been on
the pom-pom squad,, the


National Honor Society, sru-
dent council and Future
Homemakers of America. She
also served as co-editor of the
school yearbook. Outside of
school, her hobbies were
snow skiing, aerobics, and
handicrafts.
Her daughter's fourth-
grade class project last year
was to select a pen palfor cor-
respondence, so Kaitlyn
decided to write to her moth-
er's old elementary school in
Hawkins. Her contact result-
ed in responses from both
children and teachers there.
and ultimately a special trip
to Wisconsin with her mother
to visit the school.
Although the school had
moved'to a new building, Lori
was amazed to find that one
of her former teachers was;
still on the staff.
"That's the kind of longevi-
ty and dedication I hope to
demonstrate," Stelzer said.:'

Venice Train Depot to Circus
Bridge segment of the
Venetian Waterway Park.

without having to negotiate a
highway.
The newest segment is
close to 2 miles long and,
added to the current 7 miles,
provides 9 miles of trail for
nonmotorized uses. The trail
is 10 feet wide.
Use of the VWP is growing.

cyclists, walkers, inline
skaters and joggers for the
2006 "high season" show
8,800 fo; January; 13,200 for
February; 15,400 for March;
and 9,200 for April.

east side, the linking at the
Venice Train Depot Trailhead
to the Rails-to-Trails project
and the downtown Venice
Venetian Trailhead, VABI
believes use will skyrocket:

the funding and"contracting,
for the last 2,100 feet of the
new segment. Other contrib-
utors to the segment were:

VABI has raised more than
$5 million for construction of
the VWP trail. Funding came
from private donations,
grants from foundations and
from the city of Venice and
Sarasota County, Actual con-
struction of the VWP began in
1999.
VABI was also,instrumen-
tal in the design of the new
steps that lead from the VWP
to the top of the Venice
Avenue Bridge on both sides
of the Intracoastal. This
amenity was funded and con-
structed by Sarasota County
and.is now open for pedestri-
an use, making the VWP a
safer place at this location.
The VWP started as an idea
from a 1993 Discovery
Charrette sponsored by
Sarasota. County, and was
refined by the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce and
implemented through VA-BI's
fundraising, construction
planning and oversight.
Now, 13 years later, the
nearly complete VWP. pro-
vides a safe, nonmotorized
linear park for outdoor activi-
ty. Additionally. the VWP pro-
vides opportunities for
wildlife viewing and relaxing
in peaceful, scenic surround-
ings.
The opening of the new
segment puts in play the
Historic Railroad Depot and
Station as a Trailhead for the
VWP At the Train Depot the


VWP will connect with the
County's Rails-to-Trails pro-
ject, which, will run to
Sawyers Loop in Sarasota.
The next segment of the
VWP to be built will be from
the Circus Bridge to the exist-
ing concrete north of
Shamrock Park. The city of
Venice is doing the prelimi-
nary contract work for this
approximately 1-mile seg-
ment.
The east side of the VWP
will be complete when the
concrete work is finished to
Shamrock. Shamrock Park
Nature Center will, come
online as a trailhead and the
full 10 miles will be rideable
and walkable. The Circus
Bridge to Shamrock Park seg-
ment should be completed by
the end of 2006. .
Two volunteer groups sup-
port the county and city in
maintaining and securing the
VWE For more information

Maps of the VWP are avail-
able at the VABI office in the

Four vying to be Republican nominee in District 70


STAFF REPORT

Elizabeth Cuevas-Neun-
der, Rory A. Dubin, Doug
Holder and John Kleiber are
all hoping to be the GOP vic-
tor in the Sept. 5 primary. The
winner will face one of two
Democrats, David Shapiro or
Ernest S. Zavodnyik.
Elizabeth Cuevas-
Neunder:
Cuevas-Neunder was born
in Puerto Rico. She is self-
taught in Spanish and
English. She is also self-ed-
ucated in
graphic and

sign.
She has
been married
for 30 years
and has three
children.
She bases
her platform Cuevas-
on the 'issues Neunder
of affordable
housing, encouraging small
businesses; protecting the
environment and seeking
effective education. '
Cuevas-Neunder consid-
ers immigration the most


important issue to the people
in District 70, followed by
taxes and getting the "bang
for the buck" in education.
She proposes more rent-
to-own housing as part of the
solution to the affordable
housing problem
A "true conservative," she
said, she opposes gay mar-
riage and abortion.
She is an advocate for chil-
dren and parent responsibili-
ty.
"Children are the soul and
the heart of OUR future dner-
ations (sic)," states her Web
site, while promoting the
Jessica Lunsford Act. "Many
of these children have be-
come the monsters who vic-
timized and kill children as a
game to satisfy their disturb-
ing behaviors."
Cuevas-Neunder also sup-
ports government reform.
Rory Dubin

Dubin was a board mem-
ber of the Peace River Valley
CGA and the Joshua Water
Control District.
He cites insurance, growth
and transportation as the
major concerns in District 70.'

attract new companies.
He is married to Meryl. The
Dubins have three sons,
Mitchell,
David and
Jakob.
Dubin faces
Elizabeth!

islature leaves too many bills
to the end of the session, so
good new laws fall through
the cracks. He said the state's
infrastructure, red tide and
taxes are the key issues in
District 70.


His first priority would be
to pass a law making the

able.

incentives to ease the insur-
ance crisis.

OUR VIEW




Dubin best choice for House District 70


people have mixed feelings about term
limits, but there's no question they
keep new blood circulating through the
body politic.
That's certainly the case in Florida House
District 70, which for the first time in eight
years won't be represented by Nancy Detert
next spring when the Legislature convenes.
Instead, Venice-area voters will be sending
to Tallahassee one of six candidates four
Republicans and two Democrats vying for
the seat.
Competing for the GOP nomination are
Elizabeth Cuevas-Neunder, a candidate for
school board previously; Rory Dubin, who
has served on the county's charter review
board, an elected position; Doug Holder, a
political newcomer; and Jon Kleiber, who
was a write-in candidate in another district
in an earlier election.
In a field not loaded with particularly


strong candidates, in our opinion Dubin is
the best choice.
Each of the candidates has some features we
would want our next representative to have.
Cuevas-Neunder, 52, is passionate about
looking out for the interests of the young,
seniors and people in need. She has refused
to go after campaign contributions that
might make it look like she's beholden to spe-
cial interests.
Dubin, 41, has some valuable experience
from his time on the charter review board
and has a broad range of civic involvement
that makes him familiar with all parts of the
district.
Holder, 39, was one of the few candidates
who identified red tide as a major issue that
cuts across environmental lines to pose a
threat to the state's economy.
Kleiber, 32, is a former teacher who could
*offer insight into some of the problems in the


state school system, particularly the low level
of funding.
In our eyes, however, Cuevas-Neunder,
Holder and Kleiber have shortcomings that
make them unqualified for a seat in the
Florida House this year.
The first part of our interview process in
any race is to ask the candidates some basic
questions about the office they are seeking;
similar queries are peppered throughout the
rest of the discussion.
The point isn't to find out what the state's
operating budget is, for example; that infor-
mation is easy to get elsewhere. The ques-
tions have a simple purpose: to see if the can-
didate has done his or her homework. In this
race, only Dubin really had.
Dubin doesn't just get our recommenda-
tion by default, though. He's a native Flor-
idian and has lived in the county for 18 years.
He has served ona number of boards related


to the citrus industry, his family business for
17 years.
He sees that insurance is a crisis in the
state and needs immediate attention.
Especially critical is the lack of adequate ,
therapy programs for children, whose prob- i
lems worsen and become more expensive
-if not treated early.
He wants to move the state away from a'
service economy by promoting environmen-
tally friendly light industry, and favors im-
proving technical education in the schools.
Dubin has his vague moments too, defer-
ring any comment on the budget and state
staffing levels until he's had a chance to study
them more. We generally don't like the old,
"I'll know it when I see it" approach, but we'll
give him the benefit of the doubt in this race.
We recommend Rory Dubin as the
Republican nominee for Florida House
District 70.


Vote for state CFO


is most important


BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER

There is an iii4oitant elec-
tidn: coming up, with more
offices up for grabs than we
can remember.
Certainly it could be ar-
gued that the most important
position we will vote for will
be governor or even Con-
gress. There are some very
hotly contested races there.
On the other hand, some
might say the local races for
county commission or city
council would be the most
important, as the decisions
those people make will affect
us very directly.
But this year the one you
should spend the most time
on might be the one for
Florida's chief financial offi-
cer.
You might think this job is
a. snore, just a bean counter
who keeps track of the state's
hundreds of millions bil-
lions actually--- and how they
are'spent, but that is just not
the case. This position is the
one that will take action on
the insurance crisis facing us
all.
As we have experienced
300-percent increases in in-
surance rates in some cases, it
is becoming more and' more
difficult for some people to
afford to live or do business in
the state.
People have been canceled
once if not twice me in-
cluded only to get a state
carrier that is the insurance
option of last resort. Boy, is
that comforting.
The lucky thing for us is the
three people two Re-
publicans and one Democrat
- in this race all seem very
intent on making a change.
I have listened to all three,
most recently to the two
Republicans, Tom Lee and
Randy Johnson. They will
compete against Alexander
Smith.
Tom and Randy both have
very distinguished careers in
the house and senate of the
state, with Tom being the sen-
ate president the last two
years. He has been the first
person in a lot of years to
work together with the house
to pass important legislation.
He is a person that can bring
people together and get
things done. He seems to take
a reasoned, effective ap-


proach.
Randy, on the other hand,
is much more aggressive,
offering more ideas on how to
make the fix, yet also maybe a
little more controversial. He
has more of a plan set out,
though some of it is either not
feasible or not maybe the best
approach. Nonetheless he
has worked it hard.
Either of the candidates
would be good and would
make a good cabinet mem-
ber.. I think of these two, I like
Lee'd approaohc best buiitrhave)
not decided yet, as I admire
Randy's tough stance on the
issues. He's done more bash-
ing of his opponent, which I
haven't found too appealing,
but Lee has given it back to
him, in a much more pol-
ished approach. We should
watch this very closely be-
cause it's the single most-
important thing we will vote
on.
Luckily, their opponent,
Alex, is a very sharp ex-CEO of
a major bank and she has very
good credentials, although
not on-the-ground experi-
ence with the political pro-
cess, which just might be a
good thing. The big trick is to
get private insurers involved
and to stop having more than
a million people in the state
insurance company, Citizens.
Some want to give incen-
tives to the the companies,
others want to penalize them
if they just want to write auto
and life but not property.
Insurance companies don't
want the risk while the state
wants the risk shared more.
There is strong sentiment
that insurance rates ought to
fluctuate a lot more, not so
much by where you are locat-
ed but by how hardened your
home is. People who have
hardened their home should
be able to get insurance and
at a lower rate.
There will be a lot of ideas
floated in the months ahead.
There may be a special ses-
sion to deal with the issue, but
with it being a political year
that probably won't happen,
as no one will want to tackle
such a hot issue.
Keep close to this race
unless you are pleased with
the way insurance is going.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



All dressed up and no show


Editor:'
I have just returned from another futile trip to Venice to lis-
ten to the Venetian Harmony Chorus at the gazebo in
Centennial Park, an ad that was in your community calendar.
This is not the first time this has happened it is the third
time in three months. Every time it is advertised in your paper,
I put it on my calendar so I won't forget, we drive to Venice, and
nothing, NOTHING! No one there, no chorus, no people wait-
ing nothing.
Also, I would like to mention that for more than a week pre-
ceding Memorial Day, you advertised a parade in North Port.
That sounded like fun so I cut out the information, bought a
North Port map and made plans to attend only to discover
that the parade was not between the two schools where it was
supposed to be. Twenty minutes later, after asking six people
where the parade was, someone gave us directions to a differ-
ent location. Obviously other folks were reading another news-
paper because there were hundreds of folks at this new loca-
tion.
What is going on? This is so aggravating, not to mention a
waste of time and gas.
Priscilla Grove
Englewood

Editor's Note: We make each calendar as accurate as we can, but
sometimes events are canceled or changed after our deadline, or the
organizer forgets to let us know. We try to include a phone number with
each entry and recommend a call to confirm an event is still on to reduce
the risk of frustration in the future.


Silence has put
world at risk
Editor:
The carnage in Lebanon
underscores the danger if
ordinary people remain pas-
sive and rely only on politi-
cians.
Three years ago more pow-
erful street demonstrations


might have prevented the
tragic mess in Iraq. Now
everyone knows there was no
immediate danger to the
nation or threat of a "mush-
room cloud," weapons of
mass destruction and that
Osama Bin Laden and Sad-
dam Hussein were in fact ide-
ological enemies.


As for my 94-year-old wife
and my 86-year-old, legally
blind self, we would unilater-
ally destroy 90 percent of our
nuclear arsenal as an exam-
ple of intent to the doubting
world and still retain power to
destroy the world several
times over. ,
Suicide bombers, no mat-
ter how wrong, risk every-
thing for convictions and we
rightly call them terrorists. On
the other hand, we call young
men who drop bombs from
the relative safety of the sky,
often on civilians they cannot
see, "heroes."
How guilty are all of us for
voting politicians into office
who are not pledged to end
all this?

Put voting machine
issue to a vote
Editor:,
It is time for the county to
live up to our home rule char-
ter government and let the
people vote in November on
th6 important issue of the,
voting system we use.
The people, of Sarasota
County- have fulfilled their
requirement to put, a referen-
dum on the ballot in No-
vember to amend the county


charter to require voter-veri-
fied paper ballots and man-
datory random independent
audits of election results in
Sarasota County.
More than 14,500 people
from all precincts and all
political parties signed the
petition, well more than the
12,030 (5 percent of the regis-
tered voters in Sarasota
County) required to put this
issue on the ballot. This is an:
.issue of universal concern.
Vulnerabilities lie not only
in precinct voting machines,
but in central tabulators, as
shown by errors reported in
various Florida counties and
arotind the country. All sys-
temns need a' voter-verified
papei trail that is used to
check machine accuracy.
Sarasota County should take


a leadership role to provide
that.
Some of the points raised
by our supervisor of elections
are exaggerated and some are
just plain wrong.
They should be addressed
after the voters express their
preference on voting ma-
chines at the ballot box in No-
vember.
The county charter says
changes proposed by at least
5 percent "of the registered
voters "SHALL be submitted
to the voters at a special elec-
tion." It is time for the county
commissioners to, do their
duty, put it on the ballbt-and
let the voters vote.

Russia, particularly the three.
palaces. ,
Peterhof, the palace of
Peter the Great, had the most
beautiful grounds I have
' seen, right on the Black Sea.
The most beautiful palace
has to be Catherine's Palace, :
named for Peter the Great's,
first wife; more notably used
by Catherine the 'Great.
One room with the walls in
solid amber showed the opu-
lence of this palace. I thought
there could not be any gold
left after seeing it. Luckily,
they had taken everything out
of this palace before the
Germans occupied it in 1943-
44. This was to be their stag-
ing place to take the city,
which never happened. -
The Winter Palace, better
known as the Hermitage, is an
incredible repository of the
great works of the world's
master artists. The czars did
know how to procure.
We thought Helsinki had
little to offer, while Co-
penhagen was much more
interesting. We saw an area,
Christiania, that had once
been occupied by the military.
but is now occupied by a very
unusual grpup mopt! misfits

,over the area and consider
themselves outside the Euro-

So far the government has
left them alone.
That was very interesting
and sort of an unusual way to
take care of a fringe segment
of society. They set their own,
laws, pay taxes and sell hash-
ish on thdie streets.
Sue and I had one of our,
good photo ops at the famous
Little Mermaid. The wind-
mills, energy conservation
and environmental aware-
ness were very interesting.
Norway, however, was our
favorite. Traveling by ship,

the beautiful mountains, wat-

Bergeh was the most beau-
tiful city we saw, and it had a
fantastic pride about it. It was
the only city that was able to
adequately preserve its past,
with ,the .original buildings-
from the Hanseatic, League
dating back more than a cou-
ple hundred years.
In Oslo, seeing the balsa
wood Kon Tiki and a restored
Viking ship was- fascinating..
We learned that the Vikings
were neither tall nor did they
wear -helmets with horns on
them. (Sorry, Minnesota Vik-
ings fans.) Also .in Oslo,
Frogener Park with more than
200 statues by Vigeland is,
incredible. .
City hall, where they award
thev Nobel Peace Prize each
December, had very impres-
sive and spectacular art.
The Peace Center across
the street is likewise a won-
derfuliway to learn about all
thewinners- a hall of fame,
so to speak. ,

huge 1600s' battleship Vasa,
that, sank at. the start of its
maiden voyage.. It was recov-
4red..ihnir ,.eiiuhety.'ip!, the-.
1950swith almost no damage
to it. The water and mud pre-
served it over the years.
City hall there, where the
other four Nobel Prizes are
given out, is gorgeous -
more palace-like. We stayed
at the hotel where the nation-
al magicians conference was
being held, which led to some,
fun times
: There was much more fun,
like a couple of dinners we
had: in homes with families
that were wonderful, arind
some great' shopping and
short lectures that were en-
joyable, if not costly.
The people, particularly
those in the Nordic countries,


were great.

exercise that
helps avert back pain by
strengthening and stretching
the muscles that support the
back is the pelvic tilt. This
exercise targets the abdominal
muscles and buttocks. To perform
the pelvic tilt. lie on your back with
your knees bent. Then, tighten your
stomach muscles and consciously
press your lower back into the floor.
Raise your hips slightly,. but do not
allow your lower back to come up off
the floor. Hold this tilted position for
ten seconds, then relax and lower your
hips. Repeat three to five times. This
exercise is safe to perform once or
twice every hour during bouts of
severe back pain. First, however,
consult with the chiropractor
before attempting this regimen.

P.S. \"hen you perform any exercise,
sharp pain is an indication to stop
immediately.

Indian gridders show their better half

Kickoff Classic against
Lemon Bay shortened
because of lightning
threat.

BY GARY BROWN
STAFF WRITER --


Mother Nature put a pre-
mature end to the Football
Kickoff Classic hopes of both
host Venice and Lemon Bay
on Friday night.
Lightning and thunder
caused the stoppage of the
contest at halftime with
Venice leading 28-10. The
game will not be continued or
replayed at a later time, since
it was a preseason contest.
The regular season opens
this coming Friday for both
teams.
.I felt our guys did pretty
well," Lemon Bay coach Mike
Messina said. "We moved the
ball really well. We gave up
some big plays on defense,
but we got a chance to go
against some other team and
get ready for the season
opener."
Venice, a Class 5A school,
used big plays to top the
Manta ,Rays, a Class 3A
school.
'The Indians started things
on the first play of the game
when Jimmy Laurie returned
the opening kickoff 91 yards
through the middle for a
touchdown. Ben Shipps
kicked the extra point, and
Venice led 7-0 with 11 min-
utes, 47 seconds still left in
the first quarter.
The Manta Rays came
back on the next series and
drove 65 yards in 12 plays to
hir-,. the scoreboard.., Sean

field goal to pull Lemoin Bay
within four points at 7-3.
Junior fullback Robbie Blume
carried the ball on the major-
ity of the plays in the drive
and finished the half with 33
yards on 12 carries.
But Venice scored two
touchdowns in the next nine
minutes to pull safely ahead.
Junior Paul Costanzo scored
on a 59-yard touchdown run
with 4:08 left in the opening
quarter, and senior Al
Mitchell broke loose for
another 59-yard touchdown
run up the middle with 8:54
left in the first half. That gave
Vdnice a 21-3 cushion.
Lemon Bay scored its o nly
touchdown on a 1-ya rd
plunge by quarterback IMart
Piloto, and Venice concluded


by Laurie.
Piloto had a standout
game, completing 8-of-12
passes for 159 yards. He set
up his touchdown run with a
32-yard pass over the middle
to tight end Cameron
Renaud. who took the ball to
the 1-yard line.
"Matt just played out-
standing." Messina said. "He
finds his receivers well and is
a great leader, also."
The Indians outgained the
Manta Rays 253-214 in total
offense. Renaud grabbed
three of Piloto's passes for 69
yards. Junior running back
Keren Emmanuel caught two
passes for 33 yards and
rushed twice for 12 yards for
Lemon Bay.
Costanzo led the Venice

on just tour carries. Venice
rushed for 235 yards.
Laurie showed his versatil-
ity. Besides his game-opening
kickoff return and the touch-
down run, he carried the ball
three times for 46 yards and
caught one pass for 18 yards.
"I wish we could have had
chance to play a little more,"
Venice coach Nick Coleman
said. "We got a chance to see
17 or 18 players, and we want-
ed to have a few more
chances.
"Our offensive line blocked
great, and our running backs
were awesome."
The Manta Rays will open
the regular season at 7:30
p.m. this coming Friday at
Charlotte. Venice will play
host at 7:30 p.m. the same day

Lady Indians outslug Evangelical Christian in match of defending state champs


STAFF REPORT


The Venice High volleyball team has bolted
out of the gate to start the 2006 season.
The Lady Indians have captured their first
two matches of the season.
The most recent was Thursday night in Fort
Myers, as Venice, the defending Class 5A state
champion, took on Evangelical Christian, last
year's 2A champion.
The Lady Indians were pushed to the limit
in game one, but prevailed 28-26. Senior out-


side hitter Natalie Gaudreau notched the
clinching kill. The next two games were a little
easier, as Venice posted 25-15 and 25-17 deci-
sions.
The atmosphere in the Evangelical
Christian gymnasium was big league.
"It was like a professional game," said
Venice coach BrianWheatley of the pre-match
hoopla. "They unfurled their championship
banner right before the game. They had a
disco ball. It was great. Our girls loved it."
Venice pulled out to a big lead in the first


game, but Evangelical Christian rallied to send
it into overtime. From there, it went back and
forth.
"There were long rallies," Wheatley said.
"Our defense and ball control was the best I've
seen in a long time."
Junior libero Julie Howlett was amazing on
"D." Junior setter Nickie Halbert ran the
offense with precision.
Over the three games, Howlett finished
with 28 digs. Halbert had 31 assists and five
dinks. Gaudreau led in kills with 11. Junior


Casie Richards also put the ball down with
authority.
LADIES HAMMER NORTH PORT -
Venice opened the season Tuesday, whipping
host North Port in three straight games 25-9,
25-9, 25-11.
The match was never close.
Venice killed the Bobcats with 25 aces,
including 11 in game one. Lady Indians junior

Journey to Asia, Part II- Thailand


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is part
two of a five-part series on the
Strands' trip to South Korea,
Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.
BYGERALDA. STRAND
GUEST WRITER

After spending five days in
South Korea visiting our niece
and her husband, and study-
ing the country's economy
and history, my wife and I
departedfor Thailand.
Our Korean Airlines flight
was comfortable and the food
was delicious ... even though
we left Incheon at 10 p.m. and
landed in Bangkok around 2
a.m. Upon arrival, our out-
standing guide named Pat
presented each of us with a
bracelet made of strongly
scented native flowers.
Elaine and I are not big city
folks, and used it only as a
stopover city en,route to our
real interest in the country -
rural Kanchanaburi province.
When we were there, air pol-
lution was a major problem.
Despite that, there is plenty to
see and do in the city that will
make it worth the pollution.
Don't miss the Grand
Palace complex of 27 ornate
buildings established in 1782:
there's simply no palace any-
where more visually exciting.
Because this is the 60th an-
niversary celebration of the
reign of Thailand's King Bhu-
mipol Adulyadej (born at
Mount Auburn Hospital in
Cambridge, Mass. in 1927),
every inch of gold leaf and
brightly colored adornment
was being replaced. The pal-
ace sparkled beautifully in the
bright morning sun.
After seeing the palace.
take a long-tail boat ride on
the Chao Phya River and the
Klongs (canals) of Thonburi.
You'll pass the palace on the
riverside, and then slip into a
narrow canal that runs
through the heart of the city.
Ifwater splashes on your skin,
use a bacteria-fighting pad to
discretely wipe it off, immedi-
ately. The boat ride will reveal
Bangkok, old and new, people
merely surviving and the ulti-
mate in ostentatious life-
styles. No trip to Bangkok
would be complete without a
,.trip to the jewelry stores, The
Jade Museum, Thai restau-
rants, and the outdoor, all
night, market that borders the
shopping and red-light dis-
tricts.
Escape


Despite the exotic sights
and sounds of Bangkok's
bustling economy, we enjoy-
ed seeing it best in the rear
view mirror of our bus as we
headed 80 miles west to the
River Kwai Village Hotel. We
had purchased a two-day,
one-night tour that included


Elaine and Gerald Strand aboard Sandy, the elephant, who would occasionally leave the path to eat bamboo.

a riverside room (beautiful
and clean), elephant riding,
an afternoon of immersion
into the history of the notori-
ous Death Railway, and a
guided hike-through Hellfire
Pass.
The River Kwai Village Ho-
tel was excellent. There was
something magical about sit-
ting together on a balcony
watching the Kwai Noi River
(little Kwai) flow swiftly under
our bare feet. We drank Thai
beer and ate fresh peanuts in
the fading evening light as


gloriously colored butterflies
fluttered just above the water
and the scent of tropical flow-
ers drifted in the sultry
breeze.
I had prepared myself for
what I envisioned would be a
touristy elephant ride: you
know, a decrepit beast with a
seat attached to its back and
someone leading it down a
100-yard asphalt road toward
a point where we would
exchange places with two
other tourist riders. To our
delight, our ride aboard
Sandy, the elephant, was the
experience of a lifetime: a
solitary'ride into the Thai jun-
gle through a lush valley sur-
rounded by jagged mountain
peaks. Elaine sat behind the
elephant's head, her legs cov-
ered by Sandy's huge ears,
beneath which Elaine locked
her tiny feet. Sandy, much to
, her handler's dismay, simply


walked off the trail whenever
she wished to eat fresh bam-
boo shoots or leaves.
"How do I steer?" Elaine
shouted in alarm at Sandy's
first unexpected departure
from the trail.
"Don't worry, old Sandy do
what she want," was the dis-
comforting response. "You
OK? Yes?"
If you asked my wife what
was the highlight of her time
in Thailand, she'll tell you -
the elephant ride.
As for me,. I'll never forget
the honorable way Thai peo-
ple memorialize the human
tragedy that occurred during
the construction of the Death
Railway depicted in the 1957
film "The Bridge on die River
Kwai." In 1942, during \Vorld
War. II, the Japanese brought
more than 60,000 Allied pris-
oners of war (including
Americans) to the remote


jungles of mountainous Thai-
land. Working with 250,000
Asian laborers, they were
forced to build by hand more
than 60 timber-trestle bridg-
es, carve passage ways
through solid rock, and lay,
track for 330' kilometers
through Thailand to Burma.
They worked from dawn to
*dark, in relentless heat and
humidity, without sufficient
food and medical care. It is
believed that 12,399 Allied
prisoners died, along with
90,000 Asian laborers. The
human cost of the railway
,was incalculable. Allied
bombers destroyed much of
the railway in 1943,;: just 18
months after its completion.
Today, about 130 kilometers
of railway remain in use.
As we rode on the Death
Railway, our eyes saw the rug-
ged beauty of rural Thailand
and neighboring Burma (Un-

ion of lMyanmar) but, our
thoughts were of young men
who so long ago sacrificed
their lives during its construc-
tion. The Thai people honor
these men with two out-
standing museums and a war
cemetery: Thailand-Burma
Railway Centre and war
cemetery in Kanchanaburi,
and Hellfire Pass Memorial in
Konyu. Even if your trip to
Thailand takes you to the big
cities of Bangkok or Chiang
Mai, or to the country's fabu-
lous beach areas, don't miss a
short visit to the beautiful and

VIRGINIA DEUPREE
.i i N ,,, ,f


Dear Julia:
This week, you will be 21
and next year a college gradu-
ate, then the whole world of
adventure, work and love
await you.
You know how deeply I


love you but I do not want,
that love to be a burden, like a
heavy jacket or sweater, but
perhaps like money in the
bank, with oodles and oodles
of love that you can draw on
whenever you feel the need or
for as long as you live.
This account is for you, Pat
and Jeanette, my three won-
derful grandchildren.
I've been thinking a lot
about love lately. Some years
ago, a friend and I were
watching "Wheel of Fortune"
and somebody asked Vanna
White for her definition of
love. She said something to
the effect that love is caring
more for the welfare and hap-
piness of the other person
than for yourself. Well, Julia, I


think that pretty neatly suims
up the meaning of love.
So, let's explore this think-
ing a little further.
I think perhaps this rule
applies to all relationships,
whether they be friends, fam-
fly, sweethearts or your mate..
I suppose there have been a
million books and poems
written about love but these
are my own personal view-
points.
I think sometimes we for-
get to apply this rule of love to
friends and family. As I look
back, I know I did I forgot a
lot of things at times.
It might mean something
so simple as going to a movie
that they preferred or staying
home instead of going out. It


might mean keeping in touch
with an elderly uncle al-
though he lived far away.
Perhaps being considerate
is a good way to show love to
parents. Here again, I have
my own pet theory about that
one example.
We let your father go to the
far corners of the world, try-
ing not to display too much
worry. Your parents have
done the same for you, but I
think all parents deserve the
courtesy of a phone call when
a child is leaving or returning
from a trip.
A child, no matter what
age, who is coming home and
going to be delayed should
call his or her parents to
inform them. As most parents


know, bne's love for one's chil-
dren begins at birth or even
before and continues as long
as they live.
Don't you suppose we all
intend to follow the Golden
Rule of "do unto others as you
would have them do unto
you"? But we don't always
take the time to think.
I am not a student of the
Bible but my friend, Jeanne,
and my daughter, Jean, are,
and they remind me of this
verse often used at weddings:
"Love is patient; love is kind; it
does not envy, it does not
boast, it is not proud, it is not
rude, it is not self-seeking, it is
not easily angered, it keeps no
record of wrongs." 1 Cor. 13:4
Way back thousands of


years ago, I guess Moses
spent 40 years leading his
people out of Egypt, where it
is said that God gave him the
Ten Commandments.
One of these command-
ments is, "Love thy neighbor
as thyself." Could it have been
his love for his people that
made him lead them out of
Egypt and to safety?
I dunno!

Mama raccoon grabbed the little one by the scruff of its neck and returned it


There was a light touch on
my ankle, a distinctly furry
feeling. I looked down to see a
small masked face looking


hopefully at me. The fact that
I was eating a sandwich at the
time must have had some-
thing to do with the attention
I was getting. And then I
noticed, slightly behind the
little raccoon who'd touched
me, three miniature baby rac-
coons waiting cautiously for
mama to "score" some tidbits
of food.
Raccoons are everywhere
- southern Canada through
most of the United States,
except for some pockets in
the Rocky Mountains.
Certainly, they live through-

they're possible carriers of

Q: Do you think that natural
or prescribed medications are
the safest way to treat sickness?
You've recommended both. I'm
curious. As "America's Most
Trusted Pharmacist," which do
you prefer? B.K., Denver
A. I like both. For example,
if I had a maddening urinary
tract infection, I would prefer
an antibiotic straight from
the pharmacy, along with
over-the-counter pain tablets
like phenazopyridine. IfI had
a minor lingering cough or
annoying sinus drip, I might
use colloidal silver or olive
leaf extract to help get over it.
People are different and
their needs vary, and individ-
ual genetic differences affect'
how they process substances.
Some people are very, very
sensitive to drugs, and some
,to botanical extracts.
Prescribed meds today are
often "one size fits all," sold
in only one dosage strength,

HEARING


B Vicki Connell, '.
M.A.,CCC-A
Certified Audiologist N
Q. If hearing aids are
computerized, why can't
they be pre-set at the
manufacturer? Why does
my Audiologist have to re-
program them in her
office?
A. No universal fitting
program exists. In
determining gain for,
hearing aid .fittings, there
are currently, two popular
fitting methods, empire and
prescriptive. When a,
hearing aid is fit
empirically, it is fit to the
patient's comfort level. It is
when the patient tells the
Audiologist that the level of
amplification hl is
comfortable. While this
method may make the
hearing aids pleasant ,to
wear, this method does not
reveal. ho \ well, a hearing
aid is : providing clear
speech to the patient. The
prescriptive method is based
on mathematical formulas
which are used to select the
setting of the hearing aid.
Once programmed, the,
hearing aid fitting must' be
verified which insures all


speech sounds are being
properly amplified. The
Audiologist at Woodmere
Hearing Balance Centers,
Inc. are specially trained to
understand the prescriptive
fitting formulas and how
best to program a persons
hearing aid to achieve the
maximum clarity. Call them
at 492-4327 in Venice or
at 206-2136 in Port
Charlotte.

to be taken once a day But
this isn't right for everyone. A
40-year-old shouldn't be :
treated exactly as a 70-year-
old. Botanical extracts, on the
other hand, come in lots of
different doses and forms.
I prefer preventing illness' '
over treating symptoms of
disease. Unfortunately,.
healthy people don't usually
think in terms of prevention;
they wait until they get sick,
then take a pill to fix them-
selves up. For example, they
eat junk their whole seden-
tary life, and when their cho--
lesterol goes up they take a
pill to fix it. Just between you
and me, there's no pill to fix a
lifestyle like this, but millions
of dollarsare spent trying.
Herbs aren't like pre- 0"v,
scribed pills. Their doses can
vary from brand to brand.
Methods used to grow and
cultivate the botanicals also
differ. In the body, differ-
ences like these are not so
subtle. I'm not herb-happy. I
believe in their cautious use,
just as with prescribed med-
ications. Quality(and purity
are not always up to par with
herbs, and a few;fly-by-night
vendors producing useless or:
harmful products make it
hard for the good manufac-
turers to recover. Public fear
is natural and very hard to
overcome.,


People should be very-
cautious about what they-
consume. Most people
assume that "natural" or
"herbal" implies safety, but
this is not necessarily true.
Herbals definitely have bio-
logical effects. They have
interactions and can produce
adverse side effects. In the
old days, herbs were the only
medicines we had. The
patented, synthetic sub-
stances available today are
considered "advancements,"
but are they?
Educating yourself is cru-
cial to the safe and effective
use of both natural sub-
stances and conventional
medicine. Don't take any nat-
ural product or ask your doc-
tor for any prescribed drug
haphazardly, simply because
you saw an ad for it in a mag-
azine or because your neigh-
bor swears by it. Pregnant
and nursing women need to
be especially careful about
what they consume.
Did you know? The FDA
just approved a generic,
lower-cost version of the
antidepressant Effexor, called
Venlafaxine.

Merle Dwyer takes the long way home to Venice via Cleveland
r .1 *i).' * o .' : / : . *** *. ** .

FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST,

Venice resident Merle
Dwyer traveled to Princeton,
N.J., to visit her family as she
does several times each year.
She had a great time with
Glynn, Roxane, Asthon and
Erica Dwyer, her son, daugh-
ter-in-law and granddaugh-
ters.


Part of the fun came from
watching soccer tryouts.
Merle's granddaughter
'Asthon Dwyer made several
cuts trying'out for the United
States Olympic soccer team.
On Merle's last night in
Princeton, the family spent a
late evening at Fort Dix
watching the soccer activities.
The next morning Merle'
was up at 3 a.m. for her trip to
the airport and the direct,
flight back to Sarasota and on
to Venice.
When Merle got to the
Newark Airport she realized
her trip would not be direct.
First of all Merle learned of
the terror threat reported in
Great Britain.
Then she learned she
would have to dispose of all
her liquids and gels. That


included make up and water,
which was all right with her.
Merle's heart broke when
she learned she could not
take her special Heinz pickles
in her carry on case.
These pickles are not avail-
able in Venice, so each time
Merle travels to New Jersey
she brings a shoe boxwith the
plan of filling it with jars of
pickles to bring back to Ven-
ice.
Thank goodness a kind
security guard at the airport
helped Merle pack the pickles
in her suitcase.
Merle had some new
clothes packed, and she real-
ized if the pickle jars broke
the clothes would be ruined.
She decided to take the risk
as the pickles were worth it.
All flights were canceled or


delayed. Merle's direct flight
turned into a trek from New-
ark to Cleveland to Atlanta to
Sarasota.
Merle said, "The lines were
long and slow. I felt sorry for
the pregnant ladies and those
traveling with children."`
It was a long day with long
waits because often Merle
missed the connecting flight.
She was hungry and tired
when she arrived but Merle
was grateful to be safe.
When she checked her
suitcase, Merle discovered
her pickles and clothes were
both safe.
In addition to all this,
Merle was home in time to,
attend the Hawaiian Luau at
the Senior Friendship Center.
Life is good.

SENIOR SCENE


Senior citizen researcher creates

Web site for best places to retire


Retirement-havens.com names Venice amon
top 150 retirement places in the United State


STAFF REPORT


Guy Miles was angry about
all the misinformation being
aimed at senior citizens look-
ing for the best place to retire.
A retired research director,
clinical psychologist and cor-
porate president, Miles, 82,
knew good and bad research
when he saw it. The problem,
he said, was that much of the
information being pitched to
seniors about the best retire-
ment cities was really nothing
more than slick ad cam-
paigns. And the most famous
"Best Places to Live" lists used
criteria that did not speak to
the special needs of seniors.

Summer Service Project assists Sarasota seniors


STAFF REPORT
Since the summer of 2001,
The Notre Dame Club of
Greater Sarasota has hosted
two University of Notre Dame
pre-med students to serve as
interns at the Healthy Aging
Clinic. of Sarasota's Senior
Friendship Center. Designed
to provide students with a
hands-on learning experi-
ence in the field of medicine,
this 6-year-old program not
only gives the students the
chance to work side by side
with current physicians, but it
also gives them the opportu-
nity to provide service to
community residents at the
same time.
Naseem Helo, a pre-med
senior at Notre Dame hailing
from Los Angeles, Calif., and'
Missy Reidy, a pre-med Notre
Dame sophomore from Al-
pharetta, Ga., arrived in
Sarasota shortly after their
spring semester ended in
May. They spent eight weeks
living with various Notre
Dame alumni and student
families while they per-i
formed community service
through this project.
Reidy and Helo chose to
participate in the Summer
Service program when the
students who had participat-
ed in previous years said it
was a "must do." "I liked the
idea of working in geriatric
services," Helo said. "The
description of the Sarasota

project was right on the
money. Before I arrived here, I
didn't have much experience
'with actually working with
older people. This has given-
me a new appreciation for
helping the underserved."
Reidy says she knew she
wanted to go into medicine
for a long time. "This Summer
Service project has confirmed'
:what I knew all along. We got
to be much more involved
than I ever thought we would.
We got to speak with patients
and doctors, we got to ob-
serve several different types
of surgeries and this experi-


ence has convinced me that I
definitely want to .continue
down the path to medicine."
Helo said, "I would defi-
nitely consider going in to
surgical medicine after get-
ting to experience several sur-
gical procedures through this
program."
As for Sarasota, like so
many that make their way
here, Helo and Reidy were
pleasantly surprised. "I found
Sarasota to be very entertain-
ing," Helo said. "I thought it
would be a much older com-

I wondered what these
changes meant to Tuyet and,
Khoa.
Tuyet and Khoa are in their
early 30s and Tuyet Nhi is not
quite 1 year old. Despite liv-
ing on a teacher's salary of $40
U.S. per month, this young
family makes ends meet
while Khoa earns no income
and is absent from the home
fives days each week. They
struggle each day to reach
goals that include securing
good jobs, being strong pa-
rental role-models, and sav-
ing money. And, they are suc-
ceeding.
Any youngfamily ,
On our first night in Cao
Lanh, Tuyet and Khoa' seated
us behind them on their
motorbikes and transported
us down one-lane streets and
over several mud-covered
trails to their home. Con-
structed with brick and dile,
the small house is attrac-
tive, comfortable and clean.
Elaine and I smiled %when
we entered their home. Like
the homes of our nieces in
South Korea and Idaho, and
our nephews in Germany and
Alabama, we saw a TV, a
CD/DVD player, and a desk-
top computer. It was clear
that our "kids" in Vietnam
were more like our kids in the
Western world than they were
different. And when we saw
Tuyet Nhi charging toward us
in a walker-chair, her face
alighted with a beautiful
smile, we knew that our
young Vietnamese family
could be any young family in
America.
During our visit, Tuyet and
Khoa loaded us on their
motorbikes and got us up
close-and-personal with the
best, aspect of Vietnam, its
people. Elaine was taken to a
one-room shop/home to be
fitted for her own handmade
ao dai (traditional Viet-
namese dress). We rode the
motorbikes directly inside
restaurants when it was rain-
ing and parked them near the
tables. We rode tiny byways
that meandered through vil-
lages where people squatted
near small fires to cook their
food and where houses were
constructed of brick or thatch
and cane. Ancient wooden
workboats motored along-
side us as they navigated the
small canals that crisscross
the Mekong Delta. We
stopped to talk with Tuyet's
friends, and to walk through a
rural market where fresh
fruits and meats and live ani-
mals were for sale, and to
catch a long-tailed canoe for a
trip into the back country of
Tram Chim National Park,
about 45 km (about 28 miles)
north of Cao Lanh.
Elaine will always remem-
ber our canoe ride to Tram
Chim. Having Tuyet and Khoa
as our guides was wonderful.


The boat ride took us into
Vietnam of yesterday: crude
huts, people living off the
land, no access to modem
services or infrastructure ...
simple people, living complex
lives, with little hope of ever
closing the widening gap
between themselves and the
outside world.

supported large lotus flowers

have just been the way light
refracted on my cataract. If
time is no longer on our side,
we are enjoying what we have
left. ,
That's not so in other parts
of the country, as I was
recently reminded by reading
one of the wittiest essays on
"time" I've ever run across. It
was written by Bruce Hen-
ricksen, a skillful author from
Duluth, Minn., I met in an,
online writer's club. Members
of "Gather" upload articles for
anyone with the inclination
and time to diddle around.on
the Internet to read and
exchange comments. I was
already a Henricksenfan after
readinghis "Ticket to a Lonely
Town" and "The Lost Poetry
of Golf," but his essay, "On the
Distribution of Time," left me
chuckling so hard I contacted
him and asked permission to
include it in this article along
with our exchange of com-
ments. Bruce gave his OK,
and I guarantee your day will
be richer if you read it rich-
er, even, if you take my sug-
gestion and hurry to one of
our local book shops or go
online to a major book seller
and order "Ticket." Here's
Bruce's observation on time:
Time is like atmosphere.
The higher we are, the less
atmosphere. The further
north, the less time. In New
Orleans there's always time.
Time is as thick as .gumbo.
Appointments are never firm.
There's time to elongate vow-
els. Bars are open whenever.
Southern writers take time to
write long sentences. Like
Faulkner.
I'm writing in Minnesota;
You can tell. Time's always
running out. I call this The
Great Time Depletion. It's


DICK HARRISON
CORRESPONDENT:


Because of the average age
of our residents, the pace in
Venice fluctuates between
"laid back" and "laid out." It
isn't that we don't have chil-
dren here. There are plenty-
more in number than the
combined total of all the,
choices in every "all you care
to eat" buffet in the area on
any given day but they are
imported from all over by dot-
ing grandparents and don't
count in the average.
Aside from the pleasure of
living in such a pretty village,
there are other advantages.
Many of us are no longer
competing in the daily rat
race, and as long as we can
make it to the "early bird" spe-
cials in the evening and beat
the Methodists to brunch
after church on Sunday, we
don't worry a lot about time.
Nor do we compete in
many of the usual activities in
the hustle/bustle around us,
I'm thankful there are no
extremee sports" in the Senior.
Olympics. I'd hate to see any
of my neighbors try a "triple-
triple with a full twist" on their
tricycles. But we do have a
trapeze school in town, and
I'm almost sure I saw a lady
.with blue hair taking lessons

New York is even worse. The

BRUCE HENRICKSEN

New York, you're probably'
reading this before I write it.,
There's almost no'time at
the North Pole. The word
"forecast" makes no sense
there. The bar is never open.
The bar is called Elsinore's,
and as Hamlet said, the joint
is out of time. At the Pole, it's
all sitting around watching
"Leave It to Beaver," and I
don't mean reruns. People at
the Pole have no words for
anything that happened since
holes in the ozone layer
caused The Polar Time Drain
40 years ago. A cell phone is
"that which talks through air"
(minus the'vowels).
We need a map indicating


time-density zones in color-
coded splotches. But it's more
complicated, and I gotta rush
now.
, You got your cities and
your countryside. Cities leak
time like old water towers
shot with deer rifles. I call this
the Metropolitan Leak. Big
cities leak most. In big cities,
folks worry about turn-
around time and fast-cycle
time; they say they're saving
time or losing time, that time
flies, or that time has passed
them by. They're time servers
and time sharers. They learn
how to time shift.
hIn the old days your tat-
tered jeans meant you'd paid
your dues. It took time to
become cool. Now jeans
come tattered from the facto-
ry. Since time is disappearing,
chemists are working on pills
to replace sleep. Timex makes
a watch with a "perpetual cal-
endar." You never have to
adjust the date at the end of a
month it takes too much
time.'
As a high-altitude hiker
gasps for air, city dwellers
gasp for time..Yes; there are
still people here and there
who write with fountain pens..
There's a store in Ohio that
still sells ink in bottles. These
are exceptions.
The thinning of time can
be harnessed in books and
movies for.human edifica-
tion. Time can be mulched. I
discuss these matters, and
recipes for thickening time, in
my 'new ,book; "Cooking
Time." If you don't have time
to read it, get the CD.

reallyisn't mean at all, consid-
er how the greater temporal

density in the countryside
exerts a counter-pressure,
forcing time back into the
cities. It's like squirting water
back through the holes in the
tower. Farmers, for instance,
can make city folks wait for
their bacon and eggs. On the
other hand, the pressure can
work both ways. The city-
country imbalance (scientists
call it Henricksen's Imbal-
ance) is a chaotic system, so
mapping time densities is a
challenge.

immemorial, quality time, big
time, show time, time out of
mind, and so many other
times. I'll get to it soon, but
now it's naptime.


Because we had the time,
Bruce and I exchanged some
comments:
Bruce,
My little corner of the
world, Venice, Fla., where the
average age is around 70, will
have a walker sticking out of it
on your map and the faucet
will be barely'- dripping.
During "season" the water
drips a little faster. But we
have our pride and a bumper
sticker that reads: My grand-
mother lives in Venice Her
grandmother lives in St.
Petersburg..
The battery in my watch
died and I didn't realize it for
three days.
Hi Richard the last time
I was,,in Florida, I saw a
bumper, sticker that said
"When I Retire, I'll Move
North and Drive Slow." That
sticker contradicts my thesis


and should be outlawed.
Bruce,
That bumper sticker is a
direct result of snowbirds
braking for garage sale signs
hoping to find an antique dia-
mond brooch belonging to
someone's grandmother in
the 25-cent junk jewelry box.
We older folks have schedules
like everyone else. I try to be
up and around by 9:30 a.m.
each morning. If I oversleep,
it cuts into my naptime.
In case, you think Bruce
isn't serious about a time den-
sity map, I've added pictures
for the map pointers for
Venice and Duluth. After you
read this take the time to call
and let me know if you like
the article. Just don't call
before 9:30 a.m.

Dick Harrison is a Venice
resident.

* Have plenty of food and

* Keep all your pets' vaccina-
tion records with other im-
portant documents in a safe,
watertight place.
Have your veterinarian's
phone number handy.
If you plan to evacuate,
check to make sure your pet is
allowed where you plan to go.


Make sure your pet has an
identification tag on his or
her collar;
Micro-chipping is a sure
way to find a lost pet; check
with your veterinarian now
about this procedure.
Remember that bad
weather can frighten pets;
be extra careful not to let
your pet get frightened and
run.

about pet safety, visit the
Humane Society's Web site at

narian.

ONE LAST WORD


"This benefit of seeing... can come only if you pause a while,
extricate yourself from the maddening mob of quick impressions
ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet
image... the viewer must be willing to pause, to look again, to
meditate." Dorothea Lange, Photographer (1895-1965)

BYTOMMYMCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

One ofdie highlights of living in Venice, or"Lightning Alley"
as we are called, is the "light shows" nature puts on during the
summer months. It doesn't get any better than watching a light
show over the Gulf of Mexico.,
Lightning illuminates the skies over the United States about
25 million times each year, according to the National Weather
Service. It also kills an average of 66 people a year, and injures
300. Lightning strikes are fatal to about 30 percent of people
who are struck.
Central Florida is the most lightning-prone area in the
United States with as many as 100 thunderstorm days per year.
Because of this, Florida has more lightning deaths than any
other state. Tampa is called "The Lightning Capital of the
World."
In fact, lightning kills more people in Florida than all other
direct weather hazards combined.
The most dangerous lightning months are June, July and
August.
This is August.

Play the odds, but hedge your bet
Your chances of being killed by lightning are more than a
million to one, but you can tip the odds even more in your
favor by heeding some common sense safety tips that include:
Avoiding open high ground and isolated large trees.


Avoiding water (swimming pools, lakes and rivers), beach-
es and boats. Stay out of the shower.
Seeking shelter inside a building or an automobile, but not
a convertible or a golf cart.
Staying away from doors, windows and metal objects such
as pipes or faucets.
Staying off the telephone and away from electrical devices
including computers. Lightning will hit the ground outside
and travel through the line. Once it finds a point of least resis-
tance, there it goes and out it comes. Cell phones and wireless
computers are OK.
Monitoring NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration) Weather Radio.

Amaze your friends with this information
It is called the 30-30 Rule.
The rule can be used to determine the threat of lightning in
your area. Here's how it works.
30 seconds: Count the seconds between seeing lightning
and hearing thunder. If this time is less than 30 seconds, light-
ning is a potential threat. Seek shelter immediately.
30 minutes: After the last lightning flash, wait 30 minutes
before leaving shelter. Half of all lightning deaths occur after
the storm passes. Stay in a safe area until you are sure the
threat has passed.

Never strikes twice in same place? Hah!
The adage "Lightning never strikes twice in the same place"'


is bunk, according to Marshall Brain, a former electrical engi-
neer and founder of the Atlanta-based HowStuffWorks.
"The best example is the Empire State Building," Brain told
reporter Janie Magruder of The Arizona Republic, "and all the
lightning rods on top."
(The Empire State Building gets struck by lightning an aver-
age of 100 times a year. Once, it was struck'15 times in 15 min-
utes. A number of people in the world have indeed been hit
twice by lightning.

Getting it straight
Brain also cleared up two other popular myths about light-
ning.
Myth One is that rubber soles and rubber tires help insulate
you from a lightning strike.
"No," Brain said, "they'd have to be a half-mile thick at the
voltage we're talking about (50,000 amperes, 1 billion volts)."
Myth Two is that the number of seconds between a light-
ning.flash and thunder is the number of miles it is from you.
"No," he said, "it's 5 seconds to a mile." (Count the seconds
divide by five.)

You can e-mail Tommy McIntyre at: tmcintyre@
venicegondolier.com.
Some information for this article was taken from reporter
Janie Magruder's July 31 article in The Arizona Republic.
Brain, the former electrical engineer, was interviewed by
Magruder for her article.

* PUSHERS

From page 1
off on iti decadelong climb and
drug companies were generat-
ing record profits.
By Oldani's description,
being a drug sales rep can be an
all-consuming profession, and
the competition is intense.
To remain successful, a sales
rep must either sincerely
believe in his products or grow
cynical, according to Oldani.
For a while, Oldani was
earnest. "I was a believer that
these are great products, and
some .of them are," he said.
For instance, one of Oldani's
drugs was Diflucan, a Pfizer
treatment taken by advanced
AIDS patients to ward off infec-
tions.


"That was a real concrete
thing that I could really get,
behind when I was making a.
'pitch to a doctor," he said.*
But as more and more pre-
scription drugs ,emerged that
did essentially the same thing
pain relievers, sleeping pills,
cholesterol-fighters the
competition to get doctors to
prescribe' them became
-increasingly intense, Oldani,
said.
Techniques like "script-track-
ing" were adopted, which
allowed sales reps to track by
computer' the number and
types of prescriptions written
by individual doctors. That
made their jobs a lot easier,
according to Oldani, because
now all they had to do was find
doctors who Were already pre-
scribing their drugs and con-


vince them to prescribe more.
Still, the pressure to increase
quarterly sales figures was
intense.
"It was all about win, win,
win. We did anything we could
to expand market share," he
said.
That included plying doctors
with expensive dinners, free
drinks and tickets to profes-
sional sports games..
These tactics that have fallen
out of favor in recent years as
money has grown tighter and
incidents such Merck's legal
troubles with Vioxx have cast a
harsh light on the lengths com-
panies seemingly will go to get
doctors to prescribe their med-
icines..
Eventually, the pressure
caught up with Oldani and he
was reprimanded for conduct-


ing so-called "off-label promo-
tions," or promoting a drug for
treatments other than what it
was approved.
Off-label promotions were
used to increase market shares
of drugs by increasing the range
of ailments a drug could be pre-
scribed for and consequently
the number of patients who
might use it.
After being demoted, Oldani
grew increasingly discouraged
with his career and eventually
walked away from a $72,000.
salary to go back to school.
Now 38, he teaches anthropol-
ogy at the University of Wis-
consin at Whitewater.
"It was hard for me to leave
that money, but I felt like I was
living on an island," he said.
Wyeth's Mahady said Wyeth
is seeking to return to a strate-


gy in which .sales reps build
long-term relationships with
doctors that are mutually ben-
eficial to the rep and the physi-
cian,
The theory is that a rep who
knows what his doctors need
will be unlikely to waste that
doctor's time with drugs he's
not likely to prescribe.
That's a theory Irving Gerber
can identify with.
Gerber, 71, spent 45 years 'as
a drug rep in New York and
northern New Jersey. He
retired from Kenilworth, N.J.-
based Schering-Plough Corp.
last September.
Before the era of tag-team-
ing doctors, Gerber tramped
from office to office, building
relationships with the doctors
to whom he was assigned,
sometimes bringing lunch,


and always, he said, staying
within the ethical principles
demanded by his superiors.
One of his favorites was the
.doctor on Manhattan's Upper
East Side who had treated the
singer. Enrique Caruso. The
office was decorated with pic-
tures of the singer, and. his
music always played in the
waiting room.
Gerber said selling strategies
may come and go, but the
overall mission of the sales rep
hasn't changed since he start-
ed in 1960 sell products that
save peoples' lives. And
despite increased competition
and pressure, that mission has
grown- easier with time.
"There are products on the
market today that could have
saved my mother's life. She
died at 52," he said.

question.

Why are other builders just giving money away?


Because eyh to.


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.
