Treated wastewater to be stored underground


Sarasota County will drill three wells that
could store up to 200 million gallons of treated
wastewater. Environmental groups insist there
are few standards for storage and recovery wells.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


A controversial Sarasota
County program to store
treated sewage wastewater in
underground wells during
rainy months and pump it
back up to the surface for ir
rigation in dry months has
been cleared to resume after
a 2 1/2 year legal challenge.
On Tuesday, the county
commission voted 3-1 to
appropriate $3.2 million for


a project that will cost at least
twice that much. The balance
will be paid by the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District, which initially
agreed to the practice in 2000.
"I do not approve using
our aquifers for the storage
of treated wastewater," said
Commissioner Jon' Thaxton,
who cast the lone dissenting
vote. "A lot of parameters for
measuring water quality are
being skirted. We will be
dumping this near a source


of drinking water."
Commissioner Paul Merc-
ier asked Thaxton to indicate
"in 100 words
or less" where
he would dis-
pose of the
wastewater
if the county
doesn't go for-
ward with the
deep well
project. Thax- Thaxto
ton replied
there are a
number of alternatives, but
,he did not indicate a prefer-
ence.
'No good standards'
Three deep wells and nine


environmental monitoring
wells will be installed at a
county utility complex lo-
cated near McIntosh Road
and the Palmer Ranch sub-
division. They will provide
between 100 million and 200
million gallons of under-
ground storage capacity.
The technology of aquifer
storage and recovery is pop-
ular with public utility ope-'
rators because it costs far
less to develop than above-
ground facilities such as
surface reservoirs and
results in lower bills for wa-
ter and sewer customers.
Most ASR sites store treat-
ed drinking water, which
requires disinfecting after it


is drawn back up from un-
derground reserves. Some of
the county's water supply
comes from underground
storage wells at the Peace
River Authority plant near
North Port.
In recent
years, Florida
communities
have expand-
ed on the
deep-well
technology
to include
either the
disposal or Mercier
storage of
treated sewage wastewater.
Some use it during dry
months to irrigate golf cours-


es, public parks and areas
that would otherwise receive
potable water.
"Our primary concern is
that ASR wells are not a tight-
ly regulated activity," said
Glenn Compton, a Venice
High School science instruc-
tor and director of the en-
vironmental organization
ManaSota-88. "There are no
good federal and state stan-.
dards for them."
County utility officials
tentatively plan to inject
about a million gallons of
treated sewage wastewater
into each of the wells on days
it isn't used for irrigation.

It sounded more like dia-
logue out of "West Side
Story" than the bureaucratic
verbiage of city and county
officials.
But before everyone could
.e .,tilmed ..down Friday at
the Sarasota County Growth
Management Convocation
in Venice, there was talk of a
major battle that might erupt
between Sarasota County'
commissioners and the cities
within the county's bound-
aries.
"It's a turf war," said Bill
Wilson, a Venice City Council
member. "That's how it
comes across to me."
Wilson was joined by
Venice Mayor Fred Ham-
Smet, who said, "I find it
disingenuous that off the
wall you're taking rights that
Venice has had ... without
discussion. 1 think it's wrong."
It all started earlier in the
week in the form of a petition
brought before the county


commission by local citizens
concerned with what they
think is exponential growth
and overdevelopment in the
county. They collected signa-
tures for a county charter
amendment, which reads in
part:
"The Board of County
Commissioners must ap-
prove all changes to the
fture land-use designations
of all lands not within such
Urban Service Area regard-
less of whether some or all
of the lands are located
within a municipality."
Upset
Though no specific ordi-
'nance was drafted at that
time, the' commissioners
called for a public hearing
on the issue.
That's what infuriated city
officials in Venice and North
Port, who believed the county
was overstepping its author-
ity.

Korwek: Preserving and learning from history


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFFWRITER

Dorothy Korwek grew up
outside the small town of
Port Huron, Mich., in an old
house and in a rural area
characterized by early 20th-
century architecture.
"I was always fascinated
the design of the old build-
ings." she said. "I wanted to
know not only about the
structure and floor plans,
but also about the people
living there and the history
behind everything.
"As I began to learn the
history of my own family, my
imagination was stimulated
about the other families in
my area."
Her grandfather had emi-
grated from Austria in the
1890s. Hard work in a paper
-millnear Port Huron enabl-
ed him to buy a tract of land
outside of town that he even-
tually divided equally among
his six children.
"My mother was his only
daughter," she said, "and tra-


edition dictated that she
would inherit the homestead
- my grandfather's house
- so my family actually lived
there while I was growing
up.
"All my aunts and uncles
and cousins lived right
there," she said, "and that
made for a very busy and
happy childhood for me.
My father worked for a
brass company and, though
we weren't rich by any
means, he made it clear that
it was not necessary for my
mother to work outside the
home.
"She worked very hard at
home, however," she said.
"gardening and canning and
taking care of my sister and
me. When my grandfather
got older, we just continued
to provide the care he need-
ed there in our home. All of
that was' very educational
for me."

Saint Stephens High School


Director of Historical Resources Dorothy Korwek stands in
fromt of the Triangle Inn, a restored building now home to the
Venice Archives and Historical Collection. It is open to the
public each Monday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.,

"Looking back on it now,"
she said, "I might have gone


into architecture or urban
planning if I had really want-
ed to follow up on my inter-
est in old buildings. But I
never really knew much
about those things at the
time. I was always' good at
math and science in school,
so I decided to concentrate
onthose areas.
"T graduated from college
in 1967," said Korwek. "That
was when computers were
really starting to become
popular but they were
the kind of computers that
filled up a whole building,
not like the ones today."
Her first job was in the
computer division of General
Electric, which was then'
bought out by Honeywell.
She left that position for a
job as a computer program-
mer with Ford Motor Com-
pany in Dearborn.

New travel restrictions are more than lip service


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFFWRITER


Ifyou're taking flight in the
near future, little extrawaiting
time because of new airport
restrictions and regulations
may not be your only hassle.
Besides' the obvious ques-
tions about not carrying liquids
or gel on a flight from Fort
Myers last week, security asked
that mascara and lipstick gloss
(contained in a tube) be
removed from carry-on lug-
gage. You are permitted to


bring solid lipstick and any
powered makeup, but tooth-
paste and mouthwash are not
allowed to be carried onto the
plane.
It is suggested that you
wear socks, because all shoes
regardless of type will have to
go through the scanner.
Medications are verified by
security and names are com-
pared to prescription labels.
and identification docu-
ments.
Infants being carried by a
passenger will require a spe-


cial notification documented
on boarding pass. Baby food
and strollers require a special
check by security before'
boarding. Formula is permit-
ted.
Carry-on bags, cell phones
or laptop computers are'per-
mitted, but carry-on bags
were spot-checked.
Water is still served on the
plane in containers, butyou are.
not allowed to bring on a con-
necting flight.
If you have an early-morn-
ing flight, check to find out
ft.-rn JL, @,- :i-' .,. V.i '." .:7..',,' t \.;.'.... .. !,..,


when security opens. Arriving
early does not always ensure
no waiting. ,
Announcements at the air-
port remind passengers that
the alert is at the orange level
and everyone should be
aware of their surroundings.
A bus driver at Fort Myers
airport said, "The only excite-
ment we have had this morn-
ing was a drunk that walked
into the airport at 3:30 a.m."
He said everyone was on alert
and they grabbed the man
immediately.


Tarps and duct tape aren't going to help


Tropical Bob has anew rea-
son for insomnia: Killer,aster-
oids.
A task force has, begun
searching the universe for aster-
oids heading toward earth. An.
impact could wipe out life on
this planet, scientists say.:
And there might be thou-
sands of impact candidates
lurking in celestial darkness.
Get ready to get scared. '.
"We're now going to be
finding (one) once a week
instead of once a year," the
task force leader said.
Worst, there's nothing we
could do to stop an impact.
And if a killer hooks from
behind the sun?We'll have two
and a half days, to assemble
our asteroid impact kit.

Venice group plans beautification efforts


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER

A group of Venice area res-
idents concerned about the
environment met Friday
morning as the new Venice
Chapter of Keep. Sarasota
County Beautiful to get South
County residents more in-
volved in KSCB projects.
"We had a very productive
meeting this morning," said
Cindy Gnegy, one of the orga-
nizers. She moderated the
discussion with, the assis-
tance of KSCB Manager
SandraWashington.
One activity sponsored by
KSCB on a year-rodnd basis is
the Adopt-A-Road Program.
"These programs have been
very successful around the
nation," said Don Jacobovitz,
public services general manag-
erforthecityofVenice, "but par-
ticularly in many areas of
SFlorida. I'd-reallylike to genemrte
more interest here in getting
community groups to take res-:
ponsibility for cleaning up des-
ignated sections of odr area
roads."
A list provided by Wash-
Sington indicated that approx-
itately.50 sections of joad
idernifie-d-by KSCB haven't
yet been adopted for cleanup.
S "Many ofthese areas are in
South Sarasota County," Ja-
cobovitz said, "so I'd like to
see a variety of.groups here
step up to the challenge."
SAnother subject was the
problem of litter along the
banks of the Intracoastal

The Venice Chapter of Keep Sarasota County Beautiful met Friday morning at the Venice Area Beautification Inc. conference
room to discuss and plan future South County involvement in area beautification projects. From left, Don Jacobovitz, city of

Waterway Bellagio resident
and, KSCB board member;
**Tom Westfall said jt is espe-
cially disturbing to those who
live along or pilot their boats
on the waterway.
S"Is there',any way we can
add the banks of the intra-
coastal to the cleanup project
list?" Westfall asked "It is real-
ly a mess in some places ...."
Although some in atten-


dance stated their willingness
to help pick up the litter, oth-
ers pointed out that the
steepness and rocks along the
banks would be too danger-
ous for many people.
"We are open to any ideas
about how to resolve :this
issue," said Washington. "But
I don't think we can include it
in our general events for vol-
unteers because of the liabili-


ty for any injuries which
might occur."
Westfall said he. would
contact the West Coast Inland
Navigation District to see if it'
would be able to get involved
in the cleanup.
Florida Coastal Cleanup
David Evans, a member of
the KSCB advisory board, is
chairman of the upcoming


Florida .Coastal Cleanup
Project, scheduled for Sat-
urday; Sept. 16, from 8 a.m. to
noon. He presented a list of
More than 40 sites in Sarasota
County identified for cleanup
- parks, beaches, bridges,
piers, causeways and even a
couple of small cemeteries.
"This is the local part of the
20th annual International
Coastal Cleanup," said Wash-


ington, "which is the world's
largest one-day volunteer
effort that supports the
marine environment.
"Last year," she added,
"more than 1,800 volunteers
from Sarasota County partici-
pated in the cleanup. They
collected 111,000 pounds of
marine debris. They also
found :and freed animals
which had become entan-
gled, proving the dangers pre-
sented by such debris in the
coastal environment."




UPCOMING ACTIVITIES
The Florida Coastal
Cleanup Project is scheduled
for Saturday, Sept. 16, from 8
a.m. to noon at more than 40
sites in Sarasota County. Call
861-5000 and ask for Keep
Sarasota County Beautiful to
volunteer.
The next meeting of the
KSCB Venice Chapter will be
Friday, Sept. 22, at 10 a.m., in
the Venice Area Beautification
Inc. conference room in the
old chamber of commerce
building west of the Hatchett
Creek Bridge.
A special Venice Chapter
Workshop is scheduled for 10
a.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, in the
Shamrock Park conference
room, off Shamrock Drive in

Pact addresses school planning


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

Sarasota County commis-
sioners held a convocation
Friday with school board
members and municipal offi-
cials to approve an interlocal
agreement on school plan-
ning.
The effort stems from a
state law, Senate Bill 360,
requiring governments to fol-
low certain criteria when
planning for growth.-The
agreement was reached after
several months of negotia-
tions.
The new agreement sets
standards for the parties to
determine when new schools
will be needed.
Ken Marsh, director of
long-range planning for the
school board, said a complex
series of formulas and stan-
dards will help everyone to
understand when schools are
approaching capacity.
"Unfortunately, school
concurrency doesn't have an
'easy button,' "he said.
Determining when a
school will reach or 'exceed
capacity depends on several
factors, including such data


as actual classroom capacity;
whether any classrooms have
been converted for other
uses, such as art or music;
and, in some cases; how
many relocatable (portable)
units are on campus, accord-
ing to Marsh.
This information will guide
municipalities, the county
and the school board, as well
as developers.
When a residential devel-,
opment is proposed, calcula-
tions are done to estimate the
number of additional ele-
mentary, middle and high
school students expected.
Nearby schools will be evalu-
ated to determine whether
they have the capacity for the
additional students.
The planning process also
affects when and where new
schools will be built. The new
law requires that public
schools must be available as a
prerequisite to approving
new residential development.
Gaps
The participants discussed
some of the details of the
interlocal agreement. North
Port Commission Vice Chair
Barbara Gross raised con-


Open for


cerns about sidewalks.
"We've had a challenging
situation at our new school in
North Port (Lamarque) in that
we don't have adequate side-
walks to the school," she said.
Some participants sug-
gested that was the responsi-
bility of the developers. ,
"But what happens when
there's no developer?" Gross
ask6d. "This school was in the
platted-lot area. We can't just
tell people they can't build on
their individual lots."
County Commissioner
John Thaxton said these
school concurrency policies
may not apply in all cases,
where there is no overall
developer. School concurren-
cy is addressed at the time of
fiali subdivision, but it does,
not apply to platted lots.
Some participants sug-,
gested that school concurren-
cy should be addressed earli-
er in the process. Some city
officials said it should come
much earlier, such as during
zoning discussions. It also
helps developers to deal with
it sooner rather than later.

New roadplanning


system gets cool reception


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

It didn't take long for the
deep freeze to set in.
Mike McDaniel of. the
Florida Department of
Community Affairs was
joined by Rob Magee from:
the Florida Department of:
Transportaton for a Growth
Management Convocation
Friday at the Venice Com-
munity Center. Their friendly
attempt to guide their coun-
tv and city counterparts
through the machinations
of infrastructure planning.
funding and implementation
got a distinctly cold shoulder.
Front and center was the
issue of who is supposed to
pay for much-needed roads,
sidewalks, bridges and more
around the county. Mc-
Daniel's presentation on a
new state law that addresses
how to proceed with plan-
ning and implementation of :
infrastructure improvements
was interrupted almost im-
mediately by Sarasota County -
Conmmissioner Jim Ley.
"Zero times anything is still
zero," quipped Ley, obviously
frustrated by the fact that the
bill offered little money to
local coffers.
Ley was joined by equally
annoyed Sarasota County


Commissioner Jon Thaxton.
"With a mandate to fund
infrastructure ind a mandate
to allow growth with no
financing -vehicle around,
there's only one place local
governments can turn for
those monies, and that's to
our ad valoren tax revenue
sources," he said. "I find (this)
very troubling. .
Bad law
Magee stepped in to stem
the bleeding.
"I understand the sense of
frustration here." Magee said:
He then quickly went into the
particulars of the bill, saying it
was the "most significant leg-
islation since 1985."
Magee argued that devel-
opers who fail to pay their fair
share of the funding for infra-
structure around their pro-
jects must pick up their "pro-
.portional share." If they don't,
he added, they ought not
receive approval for their pro-*
Sjects in the first place,.
Sarasota County Com-
missioner Nora Patterson
chipped in that a developer is
only initially responsible for 5
percent of the cost of infra-
structure payments, which
encourages development and
discourages the improve-
ments that support it.
Thaxton agreed, and ad-


ded that such a small amount
allotted to building streets
and sidewalks added up to
one thing.
"Without any trarisporta-
tioin improvements.(due to)
such a small amount of mon-
ey for them, you. are now
jeopardizing public safety,"
he said.
After the presentation,
'Sarasota County.. Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub had a
few thoughts of her own. ,
"The presentation today
was done by people who
work for state government,
It's the legislation that's been
enacted that's the problem.
When'you hear that the major
portion of it was put in at 10
o'clock at night on the last
night of the LegislatRre;
something's wrong."
Staub said it was up to the
state Legislature to "get their
act together." She said it was
not right to put the onus on
the backs of the taxpayers
and didn't believe the idea
would fly without: ;.major,
major increases." :
The new Legislature be;
gins its session in March, she.
added.:- *... pisrifl fijod(S'
"We'll see what they do,"'
Staub said.

Watch your repairman


Service technicians sent to your home are us
trustworthy, but law enforcement says you
should still guard your valuables.


BYTOMMYMCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


Dottie Schneider of Venice
learned the hard way.
A serviceman from a rep-
utable air conditioning com-
pany came out to do a routine
check on her A/C, and when
he was done he stole her jew-
elry.
Schneider, who gave per-
mission to use her name, said
the serviceman told her he
had a receipt for her to sign
down in his truck.
"I'm on the fourth floor, so
I went down with him, signed
the paper then I went into the
laundry room on the first
floor," she said. "He went back
upstairs into my bedroom
and stole two diamond rings
(value $10,000).
She's not alone
Unwittingly, Schneider -
along with scores of other vic-
tims every year violated a
couple of the unwritten rules
about having a repairman
come into your home.
"Watch them closely, lock
your doors, put valuables
away the trunk of your car


ually


is a good place," Venice Police
Sgt. Tom McNulty said. "It's a
crime of opportunity."
Schneider said it won't
happen to her again.
"I'll be watching them
closely," she said, "and I'm
going to be locking the door
even when I go out to get my
mail."
Insult to injury
Schneider said that thanks
toVenice police and Detective
Eric Hill, she was able to get
one of her diamond rings
back from a local pawn shop.
"But,then I called the air
conditioning company (Su-
perior Heating and Cool-
ing) because I thought they
should reimburse me for the
theft and then go after the
serviceman," Schneider said.
"They said they don't have
any obligation to do that, but
they did reimburse me the
$150 I had to give the pawn
shop to get my ring.'
McNulty said 99 percent of
the companies that do busi-
ness in Venice are reputable.
McNulty included Superior in
the reputable category.
"Unfortunately," McNulty


said, "sometimes even a rep-
utable company will un-
knowingly hire someone who
is not reputable."
Superior officials and com-
pany attorney .B.V Dann-
heisser III could not be
reached for comment.
Michael T. Meyer, 27, 100
block Englewood Garden
Court, Englewood, was ar-
rested in the Schneider case
and charged with burglary of
a dwelling, dealing in stolen
property and defrauding a
pawnbroker, all felonies.
On Aug. 16, Meyer entered
a plea. He was put on proba-
tion and ordered to pay resti-
tution.
Meyer was also charged
in another case similar to
Schneider's.
"I thought he should have
gone to jail," Schneider said.

PETITION from Page 1A


"There are no good stan-
dards for the viral patho-
gens that will be in the re-*
claimed wastewater," Comp-
toi said.
'Dumber than dirt'
When the county initially
attempted to install the wells
in 2000, the price tag was $3
million. It has more than
doubled since then, .but
concerns that prompted the
Legal Environmental Assist-
ance Foundation to unsuc-
cessfully challenge the pro-'
ject haven't ..
"We are running out of
drinking water supplies in
Florida," said LEAF Vice Pres-
ident Cynthia Valencic. "In-
jecting wastewater treated to
reuse level into a potential
undergrounA source of future
drinking water is something
the county might want to
reconsider."
The operating theory be-
hind ASR wells is that water
pumped into underground


areas will stay in a bubble
until it is retrieved. But critics
insist it will move through
faults, fissures and fractures
to mix with uncontaminated
water that could be tapped
for public supply.
'A quote that I heard about
this technology years, ago still
holds true," Valencic said. "It's
dumber than dirt. The federal
government has issued spe-
cial rules for Florida that we
are still fighting. Wastewater
will move with aquifer water
if it is injected into the
ground,"
Thee 'has neveF'been a
widespread local consensus
that injecting treated sewage
wastewater into deep wells is
safe. A majority of the Venice
City Council opposed it sev-
eral years ago, and the city
won concessions from the
county in order to drop a for-
mal legal challenge. The
county commission narrowly
voted 3-2 to pursue permits
in 2001.


we were being sued over
annexations," said Barbara
Gross, North Port city com-
missioner.
She added that the coun-
ty commissioners were- be-
ing manipulated by the peti-
tioners, who "haven't gotten
enough signatures" for a
request that could under-
mine the authority of city
officials.
"It eliminates our right to
zone," she said. "I'm just so
upset you'd let yourselves be
used in this manner."
County Commissioners
noted that no language had
been drafted.
And County Commission-
er Shannon Staub defended
the stance of her associates.
"The county commission
certainly is rot going to blow
off four citizens who repre-
sent a great number of citi-
zens," she said.
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton added that the county
had no say whatsoever in
annexation that municipal


annexation is happening so
fast there is little space left
in the county.
"We don't want the county
to become a city," he said,
adding that if cities continu-
ally take land, it disturbs
citizens, as well as his fellow
commissioners. He men-
tioned many e-mails he has
received from constituents
thanking ,the county "for.
standing up.for us."

In an effort to quell the.
dissension, Staub reaffirmed
that the coun i-'had'jtaken,
no action to subvert the
powers of city officials.
"The motion was made
and supported to refer the
issue to the county attorney
and county administrator to
bring back a report that
would include draft language
for the ordinance," she said.
On Aug. 31, the board will
have a meeting at which
they will more fully explore

We recommend Haworth, Berlin and DeVilbiss for judge


Without a doubt, making recommen-
dations in judicial races is the hard-
est job we have during election sea-
son. The code of judicial ethics prevents
candidates from doing the thing that would
be most valuable in choosing among them
- talking about legal issues.
We understand their need to remain
uncommitted and objective about issues,
matters and people that might come be-
fore them if they win. But it surely makes
you ponder the wisdom of having lay peo-
ple elect judges.
It helps this year that some of the candi-
dates in the three races have judicial ex-
perience. We wouldn't recommend some-
one on that basis alone, but at least it gives
us a little more to work with in evaluating
qualifications.
In the Group 13 race incumbent Lee.
Haworth is opposed by Susan Hartmann
Swartz.
Haworth has been a judge here for 17
years and is extremely well regarded, both
for his actions on the bench and for the
contributions he has made to the legal
community outside the courtroom. He is


consistently among the highest-rated judges
in- all the categories evaluated in, the
(anonymous) Sarasota County Bar Associ-
ation annual poll.
In her interview Swartz gave us no rea-
son to think she could do a better job than
Haworth and several to be concerned about
putting her on the bench.
Swartz was fired from a position as a
12th Judicial Circuit child support hearing
officer :earlier this year by Chief Judge
Robert Bennett: The reasons for that appear
to us to have been well documented.
As a hearing officer she worked with
Haworth and he: was present when she
was,let go. We don't know if that's why she
targeted him to run against instead of an-
other incumbent or seeking one of the
three open seats, but she said she wouldn't
run against another woman, suggesting
she places a higher priority on gender than
on competency.
She just doesn't have nearly the breadth
or depth of experience Haworth does. And
though she said she wouldn't have any
problem fitting in with the other judges in
spite of her history, if she wins, we're skep-


tical. seat in Group 21.

The county commission is
moving fortvard with adding
. 1 cent to the tourist tax in
order to- fund a Cincinnati
Reds baseball stadium.
It started out that they
were going to add a cent and
use 75 percent of that on
increased advertising, which
is a main purpose of the tax
to help grow business for
hotels, restaurants, retail and
Resorts that benefit from the'
tax.
Unfortunately, the money
didn't work out quite right.
The cost of the project was
more than expected, the Reds
wouldn't chip in more than
$10 million and the money
given by the Legislature was
not quite enough to make it
work.
While the city of Sarasota
has anted up some more'
since it will benefit the most
from this, the total was not
enough.
So the most recent pro-
posal to make the numbers
work has been to contribute
half a cent of the additional
tax to the stadium.
I am a big baseball fan. The
fact that I am a Cardinals fan
and the Cincinnati Reds are
breathing down our necks in
the standings is not at play
here. But I have many con-
cerns about this plan.
First off, in the sour grapes
area is that when South
County sought tourist tax
money for a baseball stadium
for a team that was interested
in coming here, it was a no-go
from the commission and
the convention and visitors
bureau. In fact, the conven-
tion bureau had stats that
showed it would have almost
no impact on the area.
So why are they so inter-
ested now? There could be
many reasons.
Ed Smith Stadium is a little
old but, more important, not
fancy enough for the Reds
and their high-priced ball-
players.
I would hope the reason
isn't that the power brokers
from North County who


would benefit the most in-
fluenced the city administra-
tion and later the county
commission members, who
were left out initially. This
proposal will bring almost
no benefit in its present form
to South County.
Next, I have come to, feel
Sniucbh more I.strongl.y o-vez
the -years that 'taxpayers
shouldn't be paying for stadi-
ums for rich owners and
ballplayers. We should help
them with tax incentives or
land development opportu-
nities, maybe, but not be
funding those items when
othbr things that address
more critical issues or benefit
a much wider base are out
there.
Not as important but still
an issue is the fact that the
stadium is not used year-
round. It is hoped that with
other baseball events and
minor league games it will
get pretty good use.
There is a way to make
sure South County business-
es get something from this.
A major part of the new
money that would be set
aside for promotion should
be funneled to the North:
Port, Englewood and Venice
chambers, of commerce to
promote their areas. The
convention bureau is given
that responsibility for the
entire county and does a
better job than it used to,
but in reality it still puts most
of its emphasis on Sarasota.
Besides doing ads in na-
tional publications, it is given
hundreds of thousands of
dollars to do the same things
our chamber does. Our
chamber should be afforded
a promotional funding
source also that would help
our hotels, restaurants and
retail businesses.
The county commission is
going to have a public hear-
ing to get peoples' feelings
on the subject. I hope that.
South County makes its
voice heard that we would
expect to get extensive bene-
fit from this additional tax
or we are against it.
I think if the commission-
ers really want to listen to the
voters, they will have the issue
decided by putting it on the
ballot.

By's Crack
Ted Kennedy may run
for president, but he hasn't
thrown his pants into the
ring yet.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


North County continues to dominate


Editor: -
The recent statements that have come out of the commis-
sion meeting arid Jim Ley have finally gotten to me.
Constitutionally there is very little.you can do to curb de-
velopment of county land as you have been doing. You can
refuse to give service to South County namely North Port
and Venice but in a few years this part will be bigger than
Sarasota and North County and a lot of changes will be made.
Your lack of vision has cost us thd taxpayers dearly. We
must spend 20 to 30 times more for just the rights of way
for roads. We do not have roads to move on in case of an
accident or emergency,
Let us look at the rampant expansion' in Venice- coun-
ty part. Wall-to-wall developments on Center Road, River
Road, East Laurel and Laurel. Did any of the developers help
build the roads? No, but they did in Venice and part of North
Port very recently. :
I suggest that the ivory tower the county administra-
tion and headquarters be moved out of the city of Sara-
sota to either mid-county around Clark or south of that
location closer to the people and away from the politics of
the city of Sarasota.
Too much is spent in the city of Sarasota and not enough
in the county. The needs of the people are not met.

There's more
moneyto
be saved
Editor:
EJ. Piccolo, president and
chief executive officer of the
Sarasota-Bradenton Interna-
tional Airport, has proposed,
and the airport authority has
accepted, an offer to have
Rural/Metro Corp. provide
fire protection.
This will, so Mi. Piccolo
claims, save $350,000. If Mr.


Piccolo is so interested in
saving money, perhaps he
should look into a private
management company for
the airport. This would also
save.money. Then EJ. Piccolo
could join the 15 fireman on',
the unemployment line.
I would bet these highly

job faster than a manager

Jews are the
victims of myths
Editor:
I've been wondering when
someone was going to write
a letter of lamentation de-
voted to the suffering of the
poor Palestinians.
A letter finally did appear
and it was fairly predictable
in its use of myths and out-
right lies, starting with .the
one about Jewish refugees
driving out the.poor'Pales-
tinians.
As I remember the story,
that particular land was'given
to the Jews thousands of years
ago by an extremely high
authority. Many years later
the Diaspora happened and
the most of the descendants
of those original owners were
forcibly scattered all over the
then-known world.

ties that grew in the lime
tested for toxics? Why weren't
the suspected toxics identi-
fied? Suspicion was raised a
few years ago that actual tox-
ic material had been dumped
at the lime site. Or perhaps'
the explanation is the DEP
boys wanted to justify a free
lunch when those studies
were actually done.
Opposed. This is about
American .Legion Post 159
and the gentleman who did
not want to come due to the
smoking. I, too, agree with
the gentleman who did not
want the smoking. If the
American Legion, as they'
stated, doesn't want people
who are old and opposed to
smoking, I guess that means
they don't want any of us
older veterans who have been
through hell and back. We're
old, and they say they don't"
want old, and they're opposed
to people not wanting to
smoke there. Well, cancer.
kills. Cigarettes have cancer-
causing agents in them. I
guess they want to kill as
many of the old soldiers that
served their country as they
can. Down with the'American
Legion. Never thought I'd say
it, but down with the Amer-
ican Legion.
Not up to date. Recently
one of your readers wrote


about the American Legion
Post 159 not needing people
that are old and opposed to
smoking. In the same issue of
the Gondolier Sun the Amer-
ican Legion Post honored
members with 50 or 60 years
of service. Apparently, the
first reader is not up to date
as to what is important at
the American Legion.
Not fair. I just read Let'em
Have It about the American
Legion, that we don't want
old people. My God, I'm under
50 and I'm appalled that
somebody would say some-
thing like that. If the man
joined, he has the right to go.
I can understand about the
smoke since I just lost a couple
of people in my family to can-
cer and they didn't smoke it
was second-hand smoke. This
is ridiculous. I was against it at
first when they banned smok-
ing; but I can't believe the dif-
ference when you can actually
go into buildings and not be
able to breathe. If they can't
have a separate room or
good ventilation system, then
the whole place should be
closed. But anyone who talks
like that we don't want you
because you're old they de-
Sserve to be drummed out of
the American Legion. That's
certainly not what they're sup-
posed to believe in.
Over exposed. Please quit
using so many photos of Vee
Garry Chiulli and her hus-
band in the Gondolier Sun.
'She seems to follow your pho-
tographers to events and even
sends in photos from trips
and personal activities. Too
much is enough.

Why is it that candidates
can call homes on the do-
not-call list when others
can't? It isn't like anyone
wants those calls.
Thursday night we got a
call at 9:15. Does it have
anything to do with them
making the laws?

Do not be tpo surprised
if you read ii the paper that
school enrollment exceeds
administration estimates.- I,,,
know Venice High is up. 70,
or so more than estimates,
so VHS needs a few more
teachers. North Port High is
up about 200 more than esti-
mates.
Did we underestimate so
we were sure not to owe,
more money to the state?

I' appreciate that Joseph
Laskowsky e-mailed that I
misidentified the body of
water that the Peterhof Pal-
ace was on in Russia. It is on
the Sea of Finland, not the
Black Sea.
I forgot to mention we
were :there during the G-8
conference, which was held
at another palace not far,
from Peterhof; so that we
were unable to take a bus to
get there and instead had to
go by boat. There was so
much security all over town
that it was difficult to move.
As it turned out, the


Russian memorial for the
war'dead was across from
our hotel, so every dignitary
had to put a wreath there
and shut the highways down.

Lynn, the Workout Nazi at
the YMCA, runs a class called
Free Motion that is a body-
firming and muscle-building
class. Last week she did some
leg exercises that made me
so sore I walkedlike a duck.
She has a class at night and
one in the morning. Several
exercises are done balancing
on a ball. Boy, does that prove
how unstable I am.

Someone sent me an e-
mail about the ACLU, which,
always is, filing lawsuits
,against people who want
prayer in schools or some
Other Christian thing in cour-
thouses, as well as wanting to
remove Christmas from any-
thing to do with government.
The e-mail suggested that
every human ought to send
the ACLU a Christmas card
this year to lighten its spirits,
a little. That would be pretty
funny. .

This is the last week to

at the Robert L. Anderson
administration building in


SouthVenice.

I got a nice note from our
previous ad manager, Dave
Cherry, who now lives in
Bluffton, S.C. He sent me a
magazine from the area with
a page on pigs that were
being put up for auction,
much .the same as we did
here. That happens to be a
pig-farming area.

There is a neat place to
have a young child's birth-
day party the gymnastics
center at the YMCA. There
are things for them to play
on, including a neat rock-
climbing wall and a bounce
house as well' as the gym-
nastics things, and the swim-
ming pool can be worked
into the plans.
They will staff it and even
help with details, if you want.
The price is really reasonable
and, of course, depends how
much you add. They do sev-
eral every Saturday now.

I applaud the county
moving from a Sunday wa-
tering day to Thursday to
take some strain off what is
already a big water usage day.

Lakeland too much for Indians


Running back Rainey sprints for 272 yards an
four TDs as Venice drops season opener to


national powerhouse.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Any football coach would
have to be intrigued on how
his team would stack up
against one of the top teams
in the nation.
Venice High's Nick
Coleman was fortunate to get
that opportunity Friday
night, as perennial power
Lakeland opened the 2006
season at Powell-Davis
Stadium.
There were some bright
spots for Indian fans to cheer
about, but the dreaded
Dreadnaughts hogged the
highlight reel, cruising to a
42-7 victory.
The big difference in the
game was senior. running
back Chris Rainey, who
rushed for 272 yards and
scored four touchdowns to
power Lakeland, the No. 1:
ranked team in Class 5A and
the No. 2 squad in the nation
in the Sports Illustrated pre-
season rankings.
Rainey, who has commit-
ted to the University of
Florida, used his speed, jukes
and cut-back moves to freeze
defenders all night long. .
He was reminiscent of a
graceful gazelle fleeing hun-
gry lions.
"He's the real deal," Venice
coach Nick Coleman said.
"He's strong and athletic. You
gotta wrap him up and pray
for help."
Backfield sidekick lamal
Tayloir, i'ho opts to drag peo-
ple for tough yardage, ended
up with 100 yards and scored
the Dreadnaughts' second
touchdown of the night early
in the second quarter.
"They expose your weak-
nesses in tackling," Coleman
said of the Rainey-Taylor 1-2
punch. "I've never seen a
team too good at tackling."
Venice took the opening
kickoff but went backward
when quarterback Kyle Cal-
lahan was sacked on a third
down play. A three-yard punt
put Lakeland in business for
its first TD at the 19-yard line.
Rainey scored on a five-
yard run to make it 6-0.


The Venice offense showed
signs of life on its second pos-
session, picking up three first
downs and marching to the
Lakeland 35 before running
out of gas.
The Venice defense seem-
ingly had Lakeland penned in
with a third-and-seven call
from the 6. Rainey took off on
a 33-yard run to get the
Dreadnaughts out of the:hole.
Five plays later, Taylor scored
from 10 yards out, and it was
13-0. '
Rainey danced in on a 24-
yard TD run later on in the
second quarter to make it 20-
0.

Mitchell looks forward



to big senior year


Venice keeps upper hand


over Chiles in rematch


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Two years ago, Venice High
football fielded a promising
sophomore linebacker
named Al Mitchell.
The progression came to a
halt when he decided not to
play his junior year. Mitchell
cited differences with coach-
es that are now all patched
up.
Mitchell is back out on the
gridiron for his senior season,
and the Indian coaches, play-
ers and fans are very glad to
say the least.
Mitchell is a co-captain
and someone the younger
players are looking up to.
"He missed playing,"
Venice head coach Nick
Coleman said. "He's com-
pletely focused. He's a tough
runner, plays tough defense
and he is a great leader."
Mitchell is also playing
weak side linebacker for the
Indians this season.
The Indian coaching staff
got an idea that Mitchell
would be a strong runner last
May in the spring game at
Southeast. Mitchell rushed
for 158 yards and three touch-
downs against the Seminoles.


Al Mitchell


Mitchell showed that was
no fluke Friday night against
one of the best teams in the
USA. He gained 117 yards on
14 carries .against the
Lakeland Dreadnaughts.
"Al's legs are huge,"
Coleman said of Mitchell's
churning power. "He can
clean 285."
Lakeland spoiled the
Indians' season opener, 42-7.
"We expected them to be
tough," Mitchell said. "We
knew it coming in. We have to
get our tackling better. We
were missing assignments,"
Mitchell, who stands 5-11
1/2 and weighs 195 pounds,


has football is his blood. His
uncle Alvin is a Venice High
graduate who went on to play
at Auburn and in the pros for
the Buccaneers.. His cousin
Fredette was a standout girls
basketball player atVHS a few
years back.'
Mitchell believes the
Indians will learn from the
loss to Lakeland and improve
as the season goes on.
"It's going down at Venice,"
he said. "We're taking it to
Riverview at the Ram Bowl."

Venice High volleyball
tried something a little differ-
ent Friday night.
The end result was the
same another Lady Indian
victory.'
First of all, Friday night is a
clue the Lady Indians only
play on Friday nights if they're-
out of town in a tournament.
This past Friday night,
Venice played at home the
front end of a volleyball/foot-
ball doubleheader against
the same team it defeated in
last year's Class 5A champi-
onship match in Lakeland -
Lawton Chiles High.
The Lady Indians cruised
in the first game, 25-9, but
Chiles got its act together to
make games two and three
very entertaining. Venice
eked out 25-21 and 25-22 vic-
tories.
Venice improved its record
to 4-0. Chiles fell to 2-1.
Chiles left Tallahassee at 6
a.m. Friday and arrived in
Venice in the afternoon. The
team checked in a local hotel
and the checked out the
Teepee.

34 assists.
Chiles made a defensive
adjustment by game two and
was able to hang close to the
Lady (ndianis.
"I think they (Chiles) were a
little shell-shocked in the
beginning," Wheatley said.
"They were like deer in the
headlghts. They settled down."
And how.
SAbbyWhiddon served with
surgeon-like precision. Adri-
enne Hall was a presence at
the net for the Lady W\olves.
"This is much better than
last year," said Chiles coach
Chad Davis, whose team lost
25-18, 25-18, 25-11 in last
year's state title match. "I
couldn't ask for more from
our girls in games two and
three. This will lift our confi-


I ,


dence."
Chiles played in Fort Myers
Saturday against Evangelical
Christian, the defending
Class 2A champion.
Chiles and Venice could
face each other again this sea-
son. Both are in the Tampa
Prep Tournament in early
October.
Then down the road there's
the state tournament.
Venice's next action is
Tuesday at home against
Manatee. The Her-icanes
were the Lady Indians' chief
rival in district last year.
"They have everybody
back plus two big girls,"
Wheatley said. "Their coach
quit last week."'

World's Largest Boat Sale to be



held in Punta Gorda and Venice
World's largest dealer is overstocked and offers -W -
deals of a lifetime on new and used boats during
nationwide MarineMax sale. .


.PUNTA GORDA, FL--
What do you do if you are the
world's largest boat dealer and
have new 2007 models in route
for delivery?
Jim Shepard, Store Manager,
MarineMax Cape Haze,
explains, "We're overstocked -
way overstocked. I don't think
we can park another boat on our
lot and we have new shipments
on the way." The case is true
on many ManneMaNla lots, so
the company decided to throw
the world's largest boat sale
by marking down boats and

"Never before in our
history have you been
able to buy a boat with
these incentives."
Jim Shepard, Store Mgr.,
MarineMax Cape Haze

throwing a nationwide event.
"I knew if we held parts of
the sale in Punta Gorda and
Venice, that would help. and if
we offer to sell our remaining'
inventory of new and used boats
at the lowest prices of the year,
that would probably do the
trick. So, that's exactly what
we're going to do, August 25
to 27 at the Charlotte County
Tentatorium and our
MarineMax Venice location.
"Sure," continued Shepard,
"selling new boats with full
manufacturers warranties at
these prices hurts. But with new
boats on the way and no place to
put them, we have no other
Choicee"


Just what kind of discounts
can custoiners expect? Shepard
\vent on., "Customers can save
three ways. Manufacturers, like
Sea Ray, are offering special
Hot Summer Nights incentives.
In addition, MarineMax is-
.offering our own incentives on,
premium bands like Boston
Whaler, Sea Ray and Meridian.
And finally, there are finance
incentives available to qualified
customer's using our special
financing."
Some of our best-selling Sea
Rays, like the Sea Ray 195
Sport, will be sold with
payments' as-low as $190 a
month to qualified customers!
Or take the 220 Sundeck for
payments as low as $348 a
month. In addition, customers
can save as much as $20,000 on
combined rebates on models up
to 34 feet.
"Even though these prices
are unheard of in our history,
no shortcuts will be taken on
what we're famous for -
the MarineMax experience!"
said John Negele, Store
Manager, MarineMax Venice.
"At MarineMax, there are
never any hidden charges. Even
freight and prep are included.
Our All-Inclusive Value Pricing
also means that every customer
will get what they need to be on
the water, like free Coast Guard
equipment even a free tank
of gas!" Negele continued.
"Every customer receives a
professional Captain's Delivery


Save $15,000 on a Sea Ray 290 Sundancer (top), $7,500 on a Sea Ray 290
Amberjack (bottom left) or buy a -`i" Sm.t ,r, ... rfor only $410/mo. (bottom right)


and orientation to feel totally
'confident and comfortable in
operating their boat, whether
you are a first-time boater or
moving up to a larger boat,"
he added.
"Only MarineMax creates
exclusive events like Getaways!,
(trips organized by MarineMax
so you can experience the
boating lifestyle with other
owners) and classes for the
whole family. It all adds up to
a total experience you won't
find anywhere else."
Sales managers have been
instructed to move all new and
used boats, according to Shane
Wagnor, Sales Consultant in
Cape Haze. "I've never seen so
much quality inventory. We
need to move these boats
quickly. Financing is available
on the spot with practically no
down payment on approved


credit.
"We'll make-it quick and easy
for anyone who's in the market
for a good new or used boat to
get one at this sale for a very
low price," said John Dupize,
Finance Manager in Cape Haze.
Dupize continued, "We really
want to move boats during this
sale. Our finance managers will
be on-site to secure very low
finance rates."
The Punta Gorda and Venice
locations of The World's
Largest Boat Sale will be held
August 25 to 27 at the
Charlotte County Tentatorium
in Punta Gorda, between the
US 41 bridges and MarineMax
Venice, 1485 South Tamiami
Trail on the south side of the
island.

14A VENICE GONDOLIER SUN


KORWEK from Page IA
always going to school to
further his education. After
we married, he got his mas-
ter's degree in electrical engi-
neering from the University
of Michigan in Dearborn.
'At one point," she said,
"Phil thought he would like
to begin work on a doctorate,
so we both decided to retire
from Ford. We moved to Ann
Arbor, Mich., where he could
attend the classes he needed
at the Universitypof Michigan
campus there.
"However," said Korwek,
"after.about a year and a half,
Phil came to the conclusion
- and I heartily agreed -
that getting his Ph.D. was not
nearly as desirable as moving
to a warmer climate.
"One of our friends from
Dearborn had a condo in
Venice, Fla.," she said, "and
they were always talking
about how wonderful it was
down there. In 1981, we fi-
nally took a trip to visit
Venice. That was all it took
-just that first experience
of driving down Venice
Avenue from the do\wnown
to the beach, and we were
both hooked. ..
"We were. used to the
'beach' on Lake Huron," sh'e
said, "where the warmest,
water temperature was us-
ually around. 68 degrees; so
this was quite a nice change.
Two years later, we left
N ichigan for good.' '".
Backto the historical
That was 1983. After a few
years of getting acclimated
and finding out more about,
the community of Venice,
Korwek applied for appoint-
ment to a vacancy on the city
planning commission in early
1989. Later that year, she ran
for and was elected to a three-
year term on city council.
"It was during that time,"
she said, "that I became very
interested in the preservation
of some of the cit-'s historic
buildings. I thought the old
architecture and structures


represented the real character
of Venice, and that those ori-
gins should be honored.
"Near the end of my term
as a city commissioner," said
Korwek, "the preservation of
the Triangle Inn building
became a big issue over
which the community was,
quite divided. There were a
lot of people who felt histori-
cal preservation was just a
waste of time and money.
Since I took a strong stand
in favor of its preservation,
and investing some taxpay-
ers' funds to do it, that was
probably why my bid for re-
election failed.
"Fortunately," she said,
"the Venice Historical Com-
mission was also supporting
the effort to preserve the
Triangle Inn, and in 1991, we
were successful in getting
the building moved from the
corer of Nassau Street and
Pensacola Road to its current
location on South Nassau
Street behind the community
center.
"That was just the begin-
ning of the process of restor-
ing and using the building,"
she said. "I served as' one
of the volunteers under the
direction of Berr Arnall horn
1991 to. 1996. \ith funding
from many private sources,
as well as grant assistance
from the city of Venice,
Sarasota County, The Venice
Foundation, and the Florida
SDepartment of State (Didi-
sion of Historical Resources,
Bureau of Historic Preser-
vation), we were able to,
complete the restoration
and renovation of the Tri-
angle Inn, and get it on the
National Register of Historic
Places in 1996.
"It was shortly after that,
in March of 1996,"' Korwek
said, "when Betty Arnall an-
nounced her plans to retire
as the city's director of his-
torical resources effective at
the end of September. I was
appointed as the assistant
director during those
months, and then as director
starting Oct. 1."


Although her position on
the city staff is labeled and
paid as "part-time," Korwek
said she has to work hard to
keep her-hours down.
"There is always some-
thing to do here;" she said, "so
I am tempted to be here atall
hours, even though the city
manager has told me not to.'
"I keep busy at home with
,gardening and landscaping
it is always, a work in
Progress, Which Ikeep chang-


Venice Archives and Area
Historical Collection, and
referred to generally as "the
home of history" in Venice.
"I'm not a historian," Kor-
wek said. "Historians write
about history. I am an ar-
chivist, a collector of histori-
cal memorabilia for the
benefit of posterity."
A tour of'the Triangle Inn
offers proof positive of the
success of Korwek and her
corps of volunteers. The first


ployees from the city public
works department can be
called upon to perform vari-
ous maintenance functions,
anything they cannot do,
such as mowing the grass,
must be done by local con-
tractors.
"The big contract project
we have going on now," she
said, "is to add fixtures to the
exterior windows on the tower
and west loggia (openporch
area) which will accommo-

we would do camping, hiking
and biking; but now when
we're honie we just read a lot."
The Korwek Corps
The Triangle Inn building
was constructed in 1927 as a
rooming house. Over the
years it has served as a bed
and breakfast inn, then a
residence for World War II
employees of the Venice
Army Air Base, then a private
home for awhile, and finally
as an apartment building.
It is now the home of the


flior consists of a reception
area. a small office anid
restroom. and four good-size
exhibit rooms.
":A the oak floors, interior
doors and %windows of the
building are original fixtures,"
said Korwek, "as are many of
the other features, like the
poured :concrete fireplace.
.The exterior windows and
decorative wrought iron
around the building have
been restored to the original
designs of the 1920s."
As director of this facility,
Korwek is also responsible
for all building and property
maintenance. Although em-


date new opaque, fiberglass
storm window panels for
hurricane protection. This sys-
tem will replace the plywood
panels we used last year.
"The plywood was very
heat and difficult to install,"
she said, "and the screws were
ruining the window frames.
The new panels are very light
and easy to install, and the
attachment system will be
inconspicuous for the sake
of year-round appearance."
Changes
"Things have changed a
lot- just in the 10 years i've
been here," said Korwek. "\We


have transitioned to com-
puters and scanners, from
films to videotapes to DVDs,
and from slide programs to
PowerPoint presentations -
I can't tell you how much of
an improvement that is.
"We are converting our
reel-to-reel audiotapes of
interviews with Venice old
timers to CDs," she said.
'And we have an old 'History
of Venice' film which we are
converting to DVD video for-
mat. It was originally spon-
sored by the First National
Bank when Merle Graser
was bank president, and was
shown exclusively to civic
clubs and organizations in
the area they never sold
copies of it. That film con-
tained interviews with many
of the pioneers from the
1920s and 30s who are no
longer with us, and reenact-
ments' of many local history
events.
'A newer version of the
'History of Venice' was pro-
duced by the Venice His-
torical Society between 1999
and 2001," she said. "That
was a video incorporating a
lot of new information and
photos which had not been
available earlier. Copies of
that video can be purchased
here at the Archives, at the
old train station, and at the
city hall cashier's office."
The Triangle Inn archives
are open from 10 a.m. to 4
p.m. on Mondavs and Wed-
nesdays during the months
of lune through December.
(During lanuary through
SMay, when more visitors and
residents are in the area, they
are also open on Tuesdays.)
"The key to all of our work
here is our corps of volun-
teers," Korwek concluded.
'Although it is difficult during
the summers because many
go back up north, we still
depend on them year round.
We are always looking for
new people who want to help
out."

and 5 minutes from Venice. It shares proper-
ty with the 140,000-acre Merritt Island
National Wildlife Refuge. KSC is roughly six
times the size of Manhattan.


In simplest terms, manned flights are
launched from the KSC, unmanned flights
from nearby Cape Canaveral.
Some information for this article is taken
from NASA guides, brochures and other
sources. The article was written in hopes it
might help you enjoy the Atlantis launch just
a little more.

Mine's bigger than yours
Everything.at the KSC is measured in very


large numbers. This clearly is a game where
size does matter a lot.
For example, the shuttle assembly on the
launch pad is roughly 30 stories tall.
There is no rocket as such, like a Saturn
rocket. Instead there are two propulsive
elements, the two solid rocket boosters on
either side of the second propulsive ele-
ment, the external fuel tank.

Please see NASA 14B


This is one of the most recognizable and photographed buildings in the world. The 52-story Vehicle Assembly Building is where the orbiter is attached to the External Fuel Tank and
Solid Rocket Boosters for the ride to the launch pad and into space. The Statute of Liberty would fit easily inside the VAB.


Size does matter


After: Alive. Vibrant. E>


Before: Dull. Flat. Uninteresting...

County seeks volunteers to help remove exotic plants


STAFF REPORT.


Sarasota County is seeking
volunteers to help celebrate
National Public Lands Day on
Saturday, Sept. 30, by clearing
exotic plant species from
county-owned sites. From 8
a.m. to noon, staff from
Sarasota County Natural Re-
sources and Parks and Rec-
reation will guide volunteers
in the removal of Brazilian
pepper and air potato from
the following four locations:
* Pocono Trails Preserve, 189
Pocono Trail, Nokomis (just
southeast of U.S. 41 and the
bridge over Dona Bay)


* Lemon Bay Park and En-
vironmental Center, 570 Bay
Park Blvd., Englewood
* Phillippi Estate Park, 5500
South Tamiami Trail, Sarasota
* The portion of the county's
rails to trails corridor behind
Nokomis Community Park,
234 East Nippino Trail,
Nokomis
National Public Lands Day
is the nation's largest hands-
on volunteer effort to im-
prove and enhance America's
public lands. Sept. 30 marks
the first year that Sarasota will
participate in the 13th annual
event, which is a program of
the National Environmental


Education and Training
Foundation.
During last year's National
Public Lands Day, nearly
90,000 volunteers built trails
and bridges, planted trees
and plants, and removed'
trash and invasive plants. In
the process, they also learn-
ed about the importance of
public lands to the nation's
environmental, economic
and social health.
"Invasive plants have a
tendency to encroach on and
take over native habitats."
said Public Use Coordinator
Brie Ondercin. "Some inva-
sive plant species are toxic


and harmful for other plants,
animals and even humans.
Removing them keeps them
from spreading farther
throughout the county's nat-
ural areas and into people's
backyards."
The first 25 volunteers at
each site will receive a Dis-
cover Natural Sarasota Coun-
ty T-shirt. All volunteers will
receive gardening gloves and
water..Restrooms or portable
toilets will be available at each
location, along with. dump-
sters to place the removed
exotic plants and garbage
bags to collect trash and other
debris. Participants must pro-
vide their own hand tools,
such as clippers and shears,
and should also bring water,
bug spray, sunscreen, hat
optionalj and sunglasses.
In case of rain, the event
will move to Saturday, Oct. 21.
Registration is required to
participate. For information
about how to register, con-
tact the Sarasota County Call
Center at 861-5000 and ask for
Natural Resources.

tional Public Lands Day, visit

holds Coastal Cleanup Sept. 16


PHOTO COURTESY OF VABI

Working
beyond the standard
eight-hour workday may
s raise your risk of incurring
a work-related injury, .
regardless of what type of work
you do. That is the finding of a 13-
year study of over 10,000 U.S.
employees who worked'overtime or
on regularly extended shifts. The most ,
common complaints involved joirit and
muscle problems. Employees who
normally worked long shifts were 37
,percent more likely to sustain an injury
than their peers who worked shorter
hours. Those who worked overtime
were at 61 percent greater risk than
employees whose jobs included no
overtime. Stress may be a primary
causative factor. Whatever the cause, if
you work long hours, it may help to
consult with a chiropractor before
injury occurs.


P.S. If possible, take short breaks at
work to break the routine for the
benefit of both the body andmind.

Q. My husband's hearing
aids "whistle" or "squeal"
when he turns his head to
the side or looks up. When
this happens, I have to tell
him to turn his hearing
aid down because he does
not hear it himself.
Sometimes his hearing aid
will: whistle in church
where everyone can hear
it. This is so embarrassing
for both of us that he no
longer wears his hearing
aids in church and cannot
enjoy the service. Is there
anything we can do to
prevent the hearing aids
from "whistling"?
A."Whistling" is known as
acoustic feedback and it
occurs when sound from the
hearing aid speaker returns
to the microphone inlet
creating' a loop called the
feedback path. This is
typically the result of sound
escaping from the ear canal
through the ear mold or
through the vent. The
escaped sound re-enters the
.microphone and is re-
amplified beyond the
maximum, output cap-
abilities of the instrument.
The ,result is ,a loud
"whistle" which the wearer
and those around them can
hear. Most approaches to
managing feedback usually
result in reducing the power
(or gain) the hearing aid
produces and this can
greatly interfere with the
wear's ability to hear
clearly. New feedback
management techniques, can
now avoid this problem.
The new technology
constantly monitors the
* hearing aid for the presence
of feedback and auto-
matically eliminates it
before it become audible!
The Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. can
evaluate your ,hearing
instruments to determine if
they are equipped with a
feedback management
system. If you or someone
you know, have hearing aids
that "whistle", call the
Audiologists at 492-4327
for more information about
feedback management
technology.

VIRGINIA DEUPREE
COLUMNIST


My husband and I were in
New Zealand, in Christ
Church, I think it was. We had
taken a lift to a restaurant at
the top of a mountain. As one
often does in a place like that,
we started talking to the cou-
ple at.the next table.
Of course we started asking
the "Where are you from" bit
... "I'm from so and so," one
man answered. "Oh," I said,
"My sister and brother-in-law
live on Guam. My sister,
Cynthia Olsen, writes a col-
umn for the Saipan paper.
And my brother-in-law works
for the radio station."
"Well," he said, "I am your
sister's dentist and I know Olie
well."
Srall world? And spooky.
And then we were in a
museum, I believe in Welling-
ton. A youngish looking man
with his young son came up
to my husband and asked,
"Aren't you from Ferris State


College in Michigan?" Of
course he was. We were trav-
eling with Joan Norton and
Dorothy Wolfinger, all of Big
Rapids, and it turned out
Dorothy's husband had been
this young man's professor.
Getting smaller.
After graduating from Kal-
amazoo College, my son,
John, taught English in Tokyo,
Japan, for three years. They
lived in the little village of
Yatsu and somehow inherited
the care of a farm hduse,
complete with thatched sides
and roof, which was way up
in the mountains. One day
when they had driven up
there to check on it, two stu-
dents who had heard about
the cottage came up to see it.
When John asked where one
of the students was from, she
said, "Oh, a little town in
Michigan that you wouldn't
have heard of." "Try me," said
John. "Reed City," she answer-
ed. Well, for you Venice folks,
Reed City is just a short hop
from Big Rapids, where we
lived for 25 years.
Smaller still.
A friend has recently mov-
ed to Venice from England
and she had this story to
share. When they had been in
England a short time, they
were told of a great beauty:
spot for walking and decided
to see what it had to offer.
Standing at a gate to the path,
my friend was asked by a


passerby that she didn't have
anything in her country quite
as lovely as this, did they?
Made her mad and put her on
the defensive. With that, the
gentleman started question-
ing her as to where she had
lived and it finally came down
to the fact that she had lived
in San Juan Capistrano, Calif.
"Oh," said he, "My aunt lived
there for years," and then.the
questions came from my
friend. Pinpointing the aunt's
residence to a mobile home
park, they found that my
friend had bought a sofa from
this lady and that when she
had been updating her
address book for the intended
move to England, found the
aunt's name and decided that
she must be dead bynow and
destroyed the number. As it
happened, that had been just
about the time the lady had
died and he had gone to
California to bring her body
to his place in Wyoming for
burial.
Things get spookier and
spookier. Have you had
strange things like this hap-
pen to you?

Florida Faith in Action Network kicks off


STAFF REPORT.

The Statewide Steering
.Committee of the new Florida
iSty.oAr, of' Faith I' Ai, action
Network (FIFiANet) met re-
cently at the Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation in.Venice
Florida to celebrate the award
of a two-year $75,000 collabo-
rative grant from the Robert
Wood Johnson Foundation.
"This is a significant award
for a couple of reasons," said
State Steering Committee
Chair, Keith Backhaus. "First,
it was one of only 15 grants
awarded nationally. Second,
the Florida coalition was the


only grassroots consortium to
receive the award. Third, the
Florida Network represents
the largest group of member-
ship chapters to form. a col'-
laborative of those 15 gran-
tees." Faith In Action is a na-
tional program'of caregiving
for people who need a bit of
extra help to stay in their
homes and remain indepen-
dent in safety and dignity.
* The grant will enable the
Faith In Action Florida chap-
ters to develop a statewide
coalition that will provide
support, marketing and fi-
nancial and administrative
resources to all 38 chapters.


There are two Faith in Action
programs in Sarasota County,
both at Senior Friendship
Centers. The, Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation of Venice
is the fiscal agent for the new
network. Beth Harrison, vice
president of Donor Services
for the Foundation, said, "We
are delighted to provide this
service to the Florida Network
of Faith In Action programs
and wish them every suc-.
cess."
The state administrative
office will be located in Lake-
land, in Central Florida.

SAVVY SENIOR


Dear Savvy Senior,
Can you write a column on
travel-related discounts for
seniors (hotel, air travel, etc.)?
My husband, and I are both'
about to retire and love to trav-
el but also love a bargain. -
Savvy Travelers
Dear Travelers,
Everybody loves a bargain
but, with so many baby
boomers at or near retire-
ment age, senior discount ,
travel deals that have real
value are getting harder to
find. Here are some tips that
may help.
Hotel bargains
It's nice to know that most
hotels in the United States
offer some type of a senior
discount however, the age
you're eligible will vary. As
you look for the best deals,
keep in mind that the larger
senior discounts (30 to 50
percent) are generally found
at the more expensive hotels.
Inexpensive chains such as
Motel 6 and Super 8 typically
offer a moremodest (10 to 15
percent) savings. Also be
aware that from time to time
hotels (to attract business)
offer special deals or promo-
tions that may be a lower rate
than what the senior dis-
cdittit,.i'tBe sure Vou check.
Here are some of the better
senior discount offerings by
various chains.
Hyatt'Hotels: Offers its
guests (ages 62 and older) up
to 50 percent off regular rates
at participating hotels in the
United States and Canada.
Call (888) 591-1234 or visit
hyatt.com.
Starwood Hotels
(Sheraton, Four Points, W
Hotels, Westin Hotels and
Resorts): Offers a 50 percent


discount on 21-day advance
purchase rates or 15-25 per-
cent off reservations; every
day. Other restrictions may
apply and you must be at
least age 60 (888-625-.
5144, starwoodhotels.com.
Wyndham Hotels and
Resorts: AARP members can
save 35- 40 percent off regu-
lar room rates (877) 999-
3223, wyndham.com.
Choice Hotels (Comfort
Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality,
Sleep Inn, Clarion, MainStay
Suites, Econo Lodge and
RodewayInri.): Offer 20-30
percent discounts to guests .
older than age 60, and 10
percent to those 50 and older
- (800) 424-6423, choice
hotels.com.

Provides up to 30 percent
discounts to people age 55 0
and older (866) 725-1661,

least 15 percent off normal
rates (888) 236-2427,

Radisson Hotels: Offers a
"Senior Breaks" program that'
provides 10-20 percent off
the regular rate to people 50
and older (800) 333-3333,
radisson.com.
Savvytip
If you like staying in bed-
and-breakfasts, and you're

annual membership fee of
$60 ($75 for married couples) .
you can have access to nearly
2,000 private;home B&Bs,
and pay only $15/day ($10

Air travel
, .While many airlines may,,
offer senior discounts or spe-
cial senior fares, they are
usually loaded with restric-
tions and offer slim savings.
Here are two airlines that
offer the most entiing-deals
and some others to check
into:
UnitedAirlines: Offers
the "Silver Wings Plus" pro-
gram, one of the best dis-
count programs for seniors
(55 and older) who travel fre-
quently. For a yearly mem-


bership fee of $240 (a less
expensive $25/year member-
ship plan is also available)
you'll get $300 in travel cred-
its every year, extra bonus
miles, hotel and cruise.dis-
counts and vacation offers.
Call (800) 720-1765 or visit
silverwingsplus.com.
Southwest Airlines: They
offer special senior fares to
travelers 65 years or older
that are definitely worth a
closer look (800) 435-9792,
southwest.com.
Other options: Delta,
American; US Airways,
Continental, ATA, Horizon,
Midwest, America West,
Virgin Atlantic, Alaska
Airlines and Air Jamaica are
other airlines that may offer
discounts or special fares in
select markets to older travel-
ers. Call the airline to find out
what's available.
Take the train
Amtrak offers seniors (62
and older) a discount of 15
percent on most tickets.
These discounts however
don't apply to sleeper accom-
modations or the Auto Train.
Call (800) 872-7245, or see
amtrak.com.
National parks
For a one-time fee of just
$10, seniors (62 and older)
can get a "Golden Age
Passport," which allows them
free entrance into any
national park for life, along
with a 50 percent discount
on in-park facility charges
like camping fees, tours, fish-
ing licenses and more. Visit

Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is Part
four of a five-part series on the
Strands' trip to South Korea,
Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.

BY GERALD STRAND
GUEST WRITER

Why go to Hoi An, Viet-
nam?
Simple.
Hoi An was Elaine's reward
for having had to use crude,
and often filthy, "squatty-pot-
ties;" for eating far too much
Korean kimchi; for sleeping
with lizards and insects
(crawling and flying ones); for
swallowing snake, pig brain,
dog, swamp snails and more
kimchi; and well, let's face
it for putting up with a hus-
band who loves all the above
... except squatty potties.
When going to Hoi An, fly
into Danang, and hire a guide
and driver. On the way to Hoi
An, tour Danang's outstand-
ing history museum, visit
nearby China Beach (familiar
to all Vietnam vets), and stop
at Marble Mountain to see
incredible stone carvings.
When staying in HoiAn, I rec-
ommend Vinh, Hung Resort
(telephone 910577); it has
excellent rooms, a superb
restaurant, a beautiful pool
with an in-water bar, and it's
surrounded by palm trees ...
think Hawaii.
Hoi An is located on the
coastline of central Vietnam,
about 30 km south of Danang.
It was one of Vietnam's most
important seaports from the
16th to late 19th century. Hoi
An was frequented by mer-
chants from all over Asia and
Europe. During this time, Hoi
An came under the influence
of China, Japan and tradition-
al Vietnamese ancestors from
Indo-China. Nearly all of Hoi
An remains unchanged to-
day: A small, charming and
ancient town that is recog-
nized as aWorld Heritage site.
Hoi An is a treasure-trove
of tiny shops where travelers
can have clothes and shoes
tailor-made overnight. It is
loaded with quaint restau-
rants that serve delicious
Asian food and drink for every
taste. And, best of all, Hoi An
is the perfect size for walking
its entire "preserved" com-
munity at a leisurely pace,
without the noise, pollution
and traffic found in big cities.
In short, Hoi An was where
Elaine told me to stand in the
shade of a tree while she lost
herself in fine cloth, beautiful
footwear, outstanding wood
and stone carvings, exotic art
and an endless supply of sou-
venirs and trinkets.
In Hoi An, we met two
friends, Van Lu and Warren.
Van Lu owns JV Travel in Fair-
fax, Va.; she plans our Asian
trips. Van Lu grew up in
Saigon, from where she and
her family escaped as the
Viptcong were entering the
city. Warren is a retired senior
military officer who served in
Vietnam and, subsequently,
all over the world. Warren is a
linguist, a specialist in foreign
languages.
Van Lu and Warren found-
ed the Vietnam Children's
Program, an organization that
identifies small projects that
will significantly improve the
lives of Vietnamese children.
On this trip to Hoi An, they
were. investigating a local
woman's plea for help with
her Red Cross program. A visit
revealed a dilapidated one-
room hut in desperate need of
reconstruction. If all goes
well, I will join a small team of
volunteers in spring 2007 that
will construct a new Red
Cross outpost.
Traveling in foreign na-
tions is always a treat when
accompanied by a native
speaker. Van Lu made Elaine's
trips to the tailor's shop pure
joy. As a former seamstress
herself, Van Lu made sure that
Elaine's new business suits fit
perfectly. I simply stood in the
shop's open doorway -
sweating profusely in the

Elaine Strand crawled through one of the remaining tunnels
carved by North Vietnamese "tunnel rats" during the war.


Cyclists wave at the tourists.

Vietnam heat as I marveled
at the number of Vietnamese
hands that tugged at Elaine's
skirts, opened her blouse,
smoothed the creases, and
adjusted the seams. No kid-
ding, unknown people came
riding in on motorbikes, then
immediately proceeded to lift
her skirt or realign the lapels
of her dress in order to cover
any cleavage.
I think a call went out that a
Western woman was being
fitted, so "all hands-on-deck!"
(pun intended).
We returned to Ho Chi
Minh City after visiting Hoi
An. We stayed at the Grand
Hotel on the corner of Le Loi
and Dong Khoi (telephone
823-0163). Our accommoda-
tions and meals were terrific,
yet affordable.
In the last five years, an ex-
plosion of growth has chang-
ed Ho Chi Minh City in dra-
matic fashion. It is still a city
of exotic Asian energy, but
now that energy is fueled by
youthful enthusiasm ... the
"old boy traditional commu-
nist leaders" are going or
gone. Our young guide re-
marked quite candidly that he
and his friends have closely
watched the actions of their
peers in the Czech Republic,'
Hungary, Romania, Taiwan


and South Korea.
"We want more," he told
us, "much more ... and soon."
Since it's never wise to
comment on political state-
ments made by the residents
of a socialist country, we sim-
ply responded that lasting
change most often occurs
one-step-at-a-time. As would
any young person who is in a
hurry, he only laughed and
then responded as if we'd not
heard him the first time,
"Young people here want
change soon,.. not interested
in being patient."
I love Ho Chi Minh City
because under its new exteri-
or still lurks the alluring and
mysterious Saigon, the place


where Navy Hospital Corps-
man Ronnie Remson the
main character of my novel
"The Red Caduceus" was
exposed to covert operations
executed during the Vietnam
War. At that time, Saigon was
the Rex Hotel, French Indo-
China, baa baa bia (33 beer),
gorgeous Vietnamese girls
and sultry nights spent in
sleazy bars. Saigon was also
the heartbeat of hope for
South Vietnamese people
who desperately wanted
democracy and the site of
United States' shame when
our retreating evacuation
helicopters left them standing

DICK HARRISON
COLUMNIST


Istood there, mouth agape,
horrified at the destruction I
had wrought, pinioned by
every eye, the sudden silence
roaring in my ears, as images
of each dumb and embarrass-
ing thing I had ever done
marched across the screen of
my mind.
That day, when I officially
became instant Grandpa to
four delightful children was
one of the happiest of my life.
It was. at least for a memo-
rable moment, one of the
most mortifying, as well.
Terry, Jeff, Al and Jessica,
ranging in age from 15 to 7,
were resplendent members of


.the wedding party on the day
my son, Chris, had the good
sense and good fortune to
marry their mother. During
the time Chris and Gayle
courted an almost instanta-
neous bond between the kids
and their novice grandpar-
ents had developed and I was
already "Grandpa" in word
Sand deed.
On the wedding day there
were far-flung friends and rel-
atives from both sides of the
Aisle and I was trying my best
to make a decent impression.
SExcept for hurried introduc-
tions before the service my
best chance, of coming off
well with 'the new kinfolk
would be at the reception fol-
lowing the service. That was
when IT happened.
The wedding guests began
arriving from church, some
carrying beautifully wrapped
gifts, some bearing trays and
covered dishes of food to add
to the gaily decorated buffet
table, which was being pre-
pared by a bustle of friends
and family. In an effort to
appear useful 1 asked if I
might help and was assigned


the task of filling the punch
bowl placed at the center of
the groaning board.
The blend of fruit juices
had been readied in advance
and I carefully emptied it into
the bowl before, just as cau-
tiously, pouring in several
bottles of ginger ale. All that
remained was to add the
crowning touch, a half-gallon
block of pineapple ice cream
to float as majestically as an
iceberg on the pink froth. This
J set about to do, not foresee-
ing the result until the last
split, second when actions
designed for good but des-
tined for failure cannot be
recalled. The brick of ice
cream should have gone in
first.
Picture, if you will, the
Titanic slipping in slow
motion down the ways, prov-
ing once again Archimedes'
Principle that its giant bulk
would displace an equal
amount of water to dissipate
in ever decreasing ripples
along the banks of the river. It
does not happen that way in a

A letter from Grandpa to granddaughter going to Iraq


EDITOR'S NOTE: Dick Harrison
heard about his granddaughter
Ali's posting to Iraq on the day of
the final performance of his
church's July Fourth tribute "Home
of the Brave." This is the letter he
sent to her that day. Ali and her sis-
ter, Jessica's, big brother, Jeff, is in
the Air Force. He became a
licensed pilot at age 17.


DearAli.
Chris just called with infor-
mation about your posting to
Iraq. You already know all our
thoughts and prayers will be
with you every step of the
way. If I were not sure of your
courage, confidence, tough-
ness and training, I might not


be able write these words
without my hand shaking.
But, it is steady because I
know, with God's help; you
will be equal to every uncer-
tainty that lies ahead. You've
chosen an honorable calling

IRAQ from last Green Sheet


most bythis great land.
Tonight is the final perfor-
mance for our church's cele-
bration marking our coun-
try's birthday It is called
"Home of the Brave," and that
title has special meaning for
me today. I have a very small
part representing the Air
Force during a musical trib-
ute to each branch of the ser-,
vice, as members of the audi-


Jessica in the Army.


ence who served are asked to
stand as they hear the choir.
sing that branch's anthem.
I want you to know that
despite any criticism you may
hear from the inflated egos
who have free access to what
is called "mainstream media,"
the men and women who:
stand before me each night as
I look out across the audience
- know, from experience, what


we are doing in Iraq is neces-
sary. They are the true "main-
stream." At some future time,
years from now, you and
everyone with you will be.
able to stand proud in a coun-
try still free and still "The
'Home of the Brave" ,
Ali, thank you, and know,
that God will be with you no
matter what will come,

WAVE 'ron Idt GSreen Sheet

round-bottomed ;punch
bowl. The wave builds quickly
and like the dream of a dedi-
cated surfer seeking a perfect
wave, it crests and curls'
before crashing against the
beach. My perfect wave did
this, curling over the edge of
the bowl to sweep away the
ring of decorative flowers sur-
rounding the bowl before
crashing from the table as if it
were a miniature Niagara If I'
had been 2 inches tall, about
the height I felt, I could have
ridden that wave to the mid-
dle of the dance floor.
It was an instant crystal-
lized.in time. Not a soul in the
room stirred for that inter-
minable moment except
one. Far across the room my
granddaughter, 7-year-old
Jessica, became a tiny blur of
blonde curls and flying rib-
bons before she flattened her-
self against me, arms around
my waist, freckled face up-
turned as, she said the only
words I cared to hear at that-
moment: "It's all right, Grand-

Cooking for the finicky feline


Kittens need your help

****^*****R^-'IT .


SBY BOB WALCH
KNIGHT RID'DER NEWSPAPERS


If you really want to pam-
per your cat and show how
much you love the furry
feline, consider making it a
gourmet dinner.
Unsure what entree would
please your finicky pet? Patti
Delmonte has plenty of sug-
gestions on what constitutes
high cat cuisine that she
shares in "Real Food For Cats"
(Storey Publishing, $12.95).
The 50 vet-approved reci-
pes created to please the
feline gastronome who
shares your home will not
only satisfy the animal's diet-
ary needs, but hopefully will
have him meowing for sec-
onds.
Running the gamut from
fish to fowl to eggs and even a
few meatless meals, the reci-
pes are divided into groups
that include such tasty dishes
as Gizzard Goulash, Sardines
and Rice (Kitty Heaven), Kitty
Pizza and Western Scramble
for Kitty Roundups.
In the special-treat catego-
ry are Cat Chow Cookies,


Tabby Tuna Popsicles and
Meow-Va-Louis Mackerel
Munchies.
An unusual feature of this
kitty cookbook is the "Tan-
dem Cooking Recipes" sec-
tion. Here you will discover
ideas that work for both cats
and their "people." Prepare
the main part of the recipe
to make a mouthwatering
people meal and then, with
a few adjustments, you can
turn a portion of the feast
into well-balanced feline
fare.
This means everyone in
.the household at and under
the table can enjoy Shish
Kebab, Chicken Paprika, Sal-
mon Loaf, Rabbit Stew and
Chicken Cordon Bleu!
For cats with special health
problems, the author also
offers some special meals
that address allergies, a deli-
cate intestine, obesity, uri-
nary problems and impaired
liver and kidney function.
You'll also want to check
the information on how to
give the brush-off t hairballs
by adding vegetable matter to
kitty's diet.


SAMPLE RECIPE FOR
A KITTY TACO:
1/2 Ib. ground beef
2 tbsp. finely chopped bell
pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp. tomato paste
1 tsp. corn oil
1 corn tortilla, cut into kitty
bite-size pieces
1/2 tsp. bonemeal
1.2 tsp. brewer's yeast
1/2 tsp. iodized salt
2 tbsp. grated cheddar cheese

Steps:
Start browning ground beef
.over medium heat in a skillet.
When meat is half cooked,
add bell pepper and garlic.
Cook the mixture until meat is
golden brown.
Turn heat to low. Stir in
tomato paste, corn oil,
chopped tortilla, bonemeal,
brewer's yeast, and salt. Stir
until heated through.
Cool and serve topped with
grated cheese.
(Note: Makes enough for
2-3 kitty servings. Refrigerate
leftovers.)

Restless leg syndrome
Dear Savvy Senior,
Can you tell me about rest-
less leg syndrome, and what can
be done to treat it? I'm 59 years
old and think] may have it. -
Jumpy Judy
DearJudy,
Restless leg syndrome
(RLSj is considered to be one
of the most under-diag-
nosed, common conditions
that most Americans know
nothing about. Here's what
you should know.
Jumpy legs
SA condition that affects
Ground 10 percent of the U.S.
population, RLS is a neuro-
logical disorder-that causes
unpleasant sensations in the
legs (usually in the calf area)
and an irresistible urge to
move your legs when resting
or sitting still. While RLS can
begin at any age, symptoms
usually become more severe
in middle-to-old age. The
main complaint with RLS
(other than it being uncom-
fortable) is that at night,
when the symptoms tend to
be worse, it disrupts sleep.
Do you have RLS? Here are
some questions to ask your-
self that may help you know:
When you sit or lie down,
do you have a strong desire
to move your legs?
Does your. desire to move
your legs feel impossible to
resist?
Would you use the words
unpleasant, creepy-crawly,
electric current, itching, tin-
gling, pulling, or tugging to
describe your symptoms?
Does your desire to move
often occur when you are
resting or sitting still?
Does moving your legs
make you feel better?
Do these symptoms
bother you more at night?

SavVy facts
While doctors still don't
know what causes RLS, they
do know of various condi-
tions that are linked to it,
such as genetics (it often
runs in families), anemia,
kidney problems, peripheral
neuropathy, diabetes,
rheumatoid arthritis, atten-
tion deficit disorder and
pregnancy. Other factors that
can contribute and aggravate
RLS are certain medications,
caffeine, alcohol, stress and
more.
Treatment tips
While there's no cure for
RLS, there are some things
you can do to alleviate the
symptoms. Depending on
the severity of your case, here
are some tips that may help:


Check your meds:
Certain drugs that treat high
blood pressure, heart condi-
tions, nausea, colds, allergies
and depression can make
RLS worse. Ask your doctor
to prescribe another medi-
cine if this seems to be hap-
pening to you.!
Get a blood test: Studies
show that iron or vitamin
deficiency can cause or wors-
en RLS. Your doctor can easi-
ly check this with a simple
blood test, and may recom-
mend supplementing your
diet with vitamin E, iron, vit-
amin B12 or folate.
Watch your diet: Pay
attention to what you eat and
if it may cause or increa'""
your symptoms.
Drop or reduce the vices:
Caffeine, alcohol and tobac-
co can all make symptoms
worse.
Stretch and massage: A
good calf stretch and a strong
massage may provide some
relief.
Hot and cold: For some
people, a hot or cold bath
can help or try using a heat-
ing pad or ice pack.
Exercise: Moderate exer-
cise (20 to 30 minutes three
or four times a week) can
also relieve symptoms and
help you sleep better.
Exercising late in the eve-
ning, however, can induce
symptoms.
Reduce stress: Stress can
aggravate RLS. Meditation
and yoga are good relaxation
techniques you may wan t to
try, especially before going to
bed at night..
Improve sleep patterns:
Fatigue also tends to worsen
symptoms, so help yourself
by maintaining a regular
sleep scheduled. See sleep-
foundation.org for healthy
sleeping tips.
Drug treatments: If the
above tips don't improve
your condition, your doctor
may prescribe a medication.
Possible options include
Requip, a relatively new drug
and the first one specifically
approved by the FDA to treat
RLS. Other drugs that can
help are dopaminergic
agents (also used to treat
Parkinson's disease), seda-
tives, anticonvulsants and
pain relievers.
Savvy tip

a health-care provider in.

treating RLS, visit the Restless
Leg Syndrome Foundation at
rls.org. You can also call them
at (877) 463-6757 for their

she didn't fully appreciate the
Vietnam War era. So, we visit-
ed the decidedly biased War
Remnants Museum and
toured the places in the city
that were always in the news.
I also took her to the Cu Chi
Tunnels, where she saw and
experienced, firsthand,. the
ingenuity of the Vietcong.
Elaine crawled through a tun-
nel; she smelled the pungent
odor and felt the damp clay
.tunnel walls. She shared a
paradoxical sense of cama-
raderie with theVietcong who
suffered inside the cramped
quarters and with the .oura-
geous American 'runnel rats"
who moved silently through
the same tunnels to search for
and destroy its occupants.
Elaine's time in Vietnam


was filled with moments rich
in meaning, conversations
that left her heart touched
with joy, people who made
her feel special, places that
ran the gamut from primeval
to ultramodern, and experi-
ences that now link her in a
very real way to that era of his-
tory that still haunts people
my age. Our final destination
- Cambodia would soon
add to what South Korea,
Thailand and Vietnam had
given us.

At liftoff, the external fuel
tank holds more than 500,000
gallons of cryogenic fuel -
liquid oxygen and liquid
hydrogen.
Prior to
launch, the space
shuttle (consist-
ing of the orbiter,
external fuel tank
and boosters)
weighs 4.5 mil-
lion pounds. Of
that, 3.8 million
pounds are pro-
pellants con-
sumed in 8-1/2
minutes.
Keep in mind,
there are more
than 2.5 million
parts in the shut-
tle and every
one of them has
to work perfectly.
Up to 30 tons
of weight can be
taken on board
the orbiter's 60-
foot by 15-foot
cargo bay for
launch.
It will be a full
payload for A-
tlantis, whose six-
man crew will be
restarting con-
struction on the
International
Space Station.
Consume this! .
The two solid
rocket boosters
(the white cylin- It may not

of the external
fuel tank) contain
solid fuel, con-
sumed at the rate
of 10 tons each second at
launch.
The SRBs have the thrust
of 35 Boeing 747s and are jet-
tisoned after 2 minutes and 4
seconds of flight. They are
retrieved from, the Atlantic
Ocean by a highly specialized
vessel and dive team.
LC (Launch Complex) 39B,
from which Atlantis will be
launched, is 4.2 miles from
the Launch Control Center.
Once the shuttle leaves the
ground, Kennedy immediate-
ly turns over control to Hous-
ton, Texas.
The Mobile Launch Plat-
form that takes the shuttle to
the launch pad from the 525-
foot tall Vehicle Assembly
Building weighs 8 million
pounds, give or take.
The crawler that hauls the
MLP and its precious cargo at
the breakneck speed of 1 mile
per hour weighs another 6
million pounds.
And, the Mobil Service
Structure weighs still another
9.4 million pounds. You prob-


ably knew that.
The Shuttle Landing Faci-
lity (SLF) at Kennedy is 15,000
feet long and 300 feet wide.
Runway 15 from the north-


has a touchdown speed of
about 220 miles per hour,

PHOTO COURTESY OF NASA
At age 61, when this photo was taken in 1996, Mission
Specialist Story Musgrave, M.D., was the oldest human to fly
into space and set a new record for most shuttle flights.
Musgrave is shown here entering the Space Shuttle Columbia
from the White Room at LC39B 10 years ago.


3-mile radius are the astro-
nauts aboard the orbiter.
Reason? The shock wave from
the loudest man-made sound


tial of making you so nuts you
bay at the moon, the guide
said, only half joking. The
guide said fish jump right out


of the water when the rocket
goes off.
Turkey vultures are a po-
tential threat to a launch. They
are rounded up and trapped
(nobody seems
to know how)
prior to launch,
then released af-
ter it's over. Wild-
life specialists
also tramp the
woods and make
lots of noise (yes,
with guns) to
scare the wildlife
away before a
launch.
a; aa! Having said
all that, a one-
day tour of the
KSC is at once
exciting but tir-
m.id ing. Two days
are really need-
ed. Have lunch
with an astro-
naut. It's $22 a
pop and it's a
hoot. It's an op-
tion on your
tour. The food is
pretty good, too.
Just an
ordinary guy?
Please!
Our lunch-
Spartner astro-
naut was Dr.
Story Musgrave,
a 71-year-old
)MMY MCINTYRE surgeon who is a
veteran of many
assembly space missions
and space walks.
With more
than 17,500
hours on his
flight log, Mus-
grave has piloted 160 different
types of civilian and military
planes, including 7,500 hours
in high-performance jet air-
craft. His resume alone makes
you wonder what went wrong
wi h your life. Yet, he could still
be anybody's next ia'or niig
bor only better looking, in
better shape, and a.hell of alot
smarter.
I was disappointed Mus-
grave showed up for lunch in
a white T-shirt, denim shorts
and white sneakers. I'd hoped
he'd be wearing the tradition-
al blue flight suit (anybody
looks good in a flight suit),
NASA patch and gold wings.
How cool would that be? He
should have called me.
(There was talk he was dis-
appointed in the way I was
dressed, too.)
Actually, going to the KSC
when there is no launch is
arguably better than going
when there is one.
You can't get within a light-
year of the place during a
launch.

No space shot is routine.
Two-and-a-half million
parts in mankind's most com-
plex machine have to work
perfectly and in sync 100 per-
cent of the time. Just "good
enough" isn't good enough.
The Space Shuttle Atlantis
- STS115 is set to launch
from NASA's Kennedy Space
Center at 4:30 p.m. EDT on
Sunday, Aug. 27. (STS stands
for Space Transportation
System.) The mission is
scheduled to last 11 days.
Commander Brent Jett and
his five crew mates pilot
Chris Ferguson, mission spe-
cialists Daniel Burbank,
Steven MacLean, Heidemarie
Stefanyshyn-Piper and
Joseph Tanner will travel to
the International Space
Station to install a new 17-ton
segment of the station's truss
backbone, adding a new set
of giant solar panels and bat-
teries to the complex. Three
space walks are planned.
The astronauts arrived in


T-38 jet planes
Thursday at the
Kennedy Space
Center's 3-mile
long Shuttle
Landing Facility
(runway).
Over the next
countdown
hours, Jett and
Ferguson practice
a few final landing
procedures in the
T-38s. Meanwhile,
the mission spe-
cialists complete
any mission-spe-
cific training.
All the astro-
nauts then check
the fit of their
orange flight
suits, a mundane
but critical ele-
ment. The crew
also attends and
participates in
briefings on vari-
ous segments of
the mission.

then they are
sequestered in
what NASA affec-
tionally calls
"The Holiday
Inn," in reality a
large, several-
story tall, un-
marked building
several miles
from the launch
pad that houses
the astronauts'
apartments.
At the "Holi-
day Inn," the
astronauts' activ-
ities are quite
limited.
"At this
point, we don't
want anything to
happen to
them," one NASA
guide said, "so
we watch them
very carefully."
Even a sprained-
ankle could be
detrimental to
the mission at
that late date.


Meanwhile, work at the
launch pad is completed:
Technicians load propellants,
close the payload bay doors
and prep the shuttle's flight
systems.
The crews' equipment is
loaded into the orbiter's crew
module and any final techni-
cal issues are addressed.
The launch team monitors
all developments, including
any potential launch-day
weather issues.
It all comes together on
launch day, when the astro-
nauts suit up, travel to the
launch pad and are strapped
into the fully fueled space
shuttle.
If there are no weather or
technical problems, they hear
the familiar, ... three, two,
one, ignition and liftoff" and
man (and woman) take yet
another baby-step into the
vast unknown.

DON'T let cash incentives drive
S your decision. Some builders offer huge
discounts on prices that may have already been
inflated. Or on floor plans that might not be selling
S well. KB Home believes in giving you great value
from the siarc On eery '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 woi't bring happiness. Getting
what you want with KB Home-and nothing you
don't-bring. rel al .ue.


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.
