STAFF WRITER

Criminalistics Specialists
Randi Colligan and Chery
Prevatte are the Venice Police
Department's scaled-dowr
version of the popular TV
show "CSI," or. Crime Scene
Investigation.
"Do we watch it? No," Col-
.ligan said. "But that's every-
body's favorite question.".
The official name of the'u
department is "Criminal-
istics" but "Crime 5cene Unit'
is painted on the side of their
van.
'By whatever name, people
like Colligan and Prevatte,
who are charged with collect-
ing evidence and keeping
watch over the all-importani
chain of custody, are a critical
part of the law enforcement
team.
Juggling act
The CSU's focus is on three
things: property, evidence
and crime-scene processing
that is, fingerprints or,
more accurately, latent prints
(prints that are left behind).
Colligan and Prevane are
the keepers of any property
and/or evidence taken by
police during a crime investi-
gation. As such; they are
occasionally called on to tes-
tily in court.
In addition, fhev are re-
sponsible for lost itenis that
are rurneda- to..the police
department..
"-And," Colligan said. "we
are in charge of ordering uni-
forms."
Their office at the \enice
police station is unremark-
able. There are no beakers,
glass rubes, Bunsen burners,
shelves lined with hard-to-
pronounce chemicals or sci-
entists running around in
white lab coats.
There are however, several
computers.
The sign on the door at the
rear of the room leading to a
refrigerated, walk-in vault
speaks volumes about the
CSU's role in soling crimes.
In large, bold letters, is the
phrase: "NAI L' E I."


AN EDITION OF THE SUN


SUNDAY-TUESDAY ED


Venice


The sign on the door of the Venice police evidence vault
speaks to the resolve of criminalistics specialists Randi Colligan
and Cheryl Prevatte. "NAIL'EM" means, loosely, "convict crimi-


nals through good forensics."
Where the action is
Depending on the nature
;:*of .the crime, Colligan and
Prevatte are generally only
minutes behind the first re-
sponders in getting to the
scene.
"Our job is tocollect.and
preserve the evidence," Col-
ligan s.aid. "We don't do any
analysis. We send that to the
FDLE (Florida Department of
Law Enforcement lab."
Colligan said there are se%-
era] FDLE labs scattered
throughout the state. They
have different specialties, she
said.
', While the CSU does not do
analysis, it does processes fin-
gerprints.- ,
"They've solved burglaries,
rapes and bank robberies
with fingerprints,"' VPD Sgt.
Tom McNulty said.
The CSU often photo-
graphs and collects evidence
from car crashes in which one.
of die victims has either died
or is likely to die.


'You're just so focused'
Sometimes, the two crime-
scene experts must stay at the
scene for hours, and on a few
occasions, days. .'
"You may be in a; room
with a body, but you are so
focused on what you are
doing that you don't have
time to let it get personal,"
Pre\atte said. "It's not that we
don't care that someone has
died. You're just so focused."
One very important tool
the CSU uses is a camera.
"We take pictures of the
crime scene and the evi-
dence," Colligan said. "That
w-ay, the detectives have a
record of what happened."
Evidence from a crime
scene is kept in a locked vault.
"Things like controlled
substances, money, jewelry,"
Colligan said, "and anything
that requires refrigeration,
like blood or urine."

"Not many people bove
garbage the way I do," $aid
Debbie Gardow, solid waste
and recycling supervisor in
the city of Venice public
works department.
After running that division
for the past 25 years, she is
still enthusiastic about both
the purpose of the operation
and the 22 people who work
for her. tt
"I know thatwe have made
a positive difference in'the
quality of life for citizens of
Venice," she said, "and that
the work we do now ivill con-
tinue to make a difference for
future generations."

She grew up in a rural area
outside Clark, N.J., moving to
Venice when her father decid-
ed to retire.
After graduating from high
school, she took jobs as a fac-
tory worker, grocery store
stocker and cashier, electri-
cian's apprentice and land-
scape worker. Gardow liked
the outdoor work and land-
scaping so much, she finally
started her own yard service
business.
"I was doing the lawn ser-
vice when I heard the city had
an opening in their parks
department," said Gardow. "I
decided the benefits with the
city would be better, and the
pay would certainly be more
dependable.
"That was in 1978, more
than 28 years ago," she said,

FLETA"PETE" CARLTON was a Florida legend. A descen-
dant of four generations of Florida cattle ranchers, she
stood 5 feet tall in her cowboy boots and ran her 1,400-
acre Myakka River ranch from the cab of her pickup truck,
"Ole' Blue." Pete Carlton touched the lives of people far
and wide and was loved by all who knew her. When she
died, her coffin was carried to the Myakka Cemetery in
Ole' Blue, where she was lovingly laid to rest dressed in
her checkered shirt, blue jeans and cowboy boots.
Hundreds of mourners gathered to say goodbye to Fleta
"Pete" Carlton.

State agriculture people
threw a seminar in Orlando
last week about making fuel
from food crops. Farmers got
really excited.
See, sugar might not be
good for you, but your car
could learn to love it.
In Brazil, cane juice is
extracted and turned into
alcohol, while the cane pulp is
burned to generate electricity
for the operation. The closed
loop produces fuel for vehicles
there.
And one of the most excit-
ing things to come out of the
seminar was a statement that
we might make fuel from hur-
ricane debris. Imagine that.
Profit in the piles sure

and wearing a dress, so she
told me they didn't have any
openings for secretaries. I
laughed and told her I wasn't
a secretary I was applying
for the job of mowing grass in
the parks department. She
couldn't believe it.
"I was interviewed and
hired byr Director of Public
WorlksLarry Heath shortly
after that," she said, "and he's
been my boss ever since. I
really enjoyed working on the
crew that mowed around the
city. In addition to parks and
median areas, I also mowed
in the municipal mobile
home park I met a lot of
very niceand interesting peo-
ple on that job.
"I mowed grass for a little
over three years," Gardow
said. "Then in 1981,1 I applied
for a promotion to solid waste
foreman. Even though I had
no experience in the garbage
operation, I thought I had the
potential to learn it and to be
a supervisor.
"That doesn't mean it was
easy," she recalled. "I was sud-
denly the only woman in a
traditionally male operation,
and a new supervisor who
had not worked my way up in
that division. The men were
in a state of shock for awhilee,
and many of the customers
didn't think I had any busi-:
ness representing the city
garbage service. So I initially
experienced quite a bit of,
resistance and disrespect
from both sides.
"Several times a week,"
Gardow said, "I would come
back to 'my office in tears. I
cried a lot in those early days,
but I never let anyone see that.

A few members of the city's solid waste and recycling crew gathered in the office area for cof-
fee and last-minute instructions early Thursday morning before setting out on their routes.
From left, Recycling Foreman Bob Moroni; Mechanical Systems Foreman Louis Conda;
Supervisor Debbie Gardow; Equipment Operators Doug Mersek, Darrin Olah, Ed Wix, Tom
Davis, Mike Carello, Chris Germain, Pam Deneen and Dave Morrell; and Solid Waste Foreman
Johnnie Poole.


It was really quite a challenge."
Positive changes
"When I got the foreman's
position in solid waste," Gar-
dow continued, "there was
really no system in place -
no organized routes, no
established procedures to fol-
low and no written record of
where dumpsters had been
placed. We were still running
the two-man rear-loading
trucks with a driver and a
laborer. The men were just
out there on their own trying
to locate: all the commercial
dumpsters and residential
pickup sites.
"So I not only had to learn
the garbage business from
scratch," she said. "I also had
to set up a better way to do it.
"Since this is an'enterprise'
operation dependent on
making money from fees and


service charges," she explain-
ed, "we had to start running it
like a real business. We added
roll-off dumpsters and recy-
cling-with the help of some'
grants, we were able to get
better equipment with more
safety options, and generally
before efficient..
"We're still making im-
provements," she said. "The
hardest thing is finding good
,eniployees. This is strenuous,
demanding work, and it is not
for everyone.When we adver-
tise openings, we often get
people applying who .have
heard that the money and
hours are good. They usually
discover very quickly if the
work is too hard for them, or if
they just aren't suited for it."
"We've been very fortunate
in the past few months," she
said, "to hire a number of
younger new employees who


really have a strong work
ethic. After many. years, of
being short-handed, it's great
to finally have almost a full
crew on board."
Looking ahead
"We have also purchased a
number of new trucks, which
have been delivered recently,"
she said, "and we are going to
be ordering more in the next
few months. We are buying
equipment which can easily
be converted to 'automation'
if the citycouncil ever decides
to make that change.
'Automation," Gardow ex-
plained, "simply means the
driver doesn't have to get out
of the truck to manually pick
up the residential garbage -
he can reach out with me-
chanical arms to pick up the
specially designed cans,
dump them and return them


to the curb while sitting in the
air-conditioned cab.
"Another improvement on
the horizon," she added, "is
using 'single stream' recy-
cling, which is becoming
more and more popular na-
tionwide. Instead of residents
having to separate glass,
metal, paper and cardboard
at the curb, we would collect
it all in a single stream, and
the recycling centers would
use special equipment to do
the separating.
"We are also going to start
preparing now for new feder-
al diesel emission standards,
which go into effect in 2007,"
she added. "At that time,
diesel fuel will be going to
'zero sulphur' to reduce pol-
lution nationwide. But en-
gines will have to be changed
in some ways to be able to
run on the new formula.
"We're requesting council
approval for funds to pur-
chase some of the new equip-
ment now," she said, "so \wee
can be ahead of the game and
take advantage of lower
prices before the costs go up."
Garbage is beautiful
"I've been very fortunate."
she said, "to have a wonderful
boss like Mr. Heath for over 28'
years. He is hdie best supervi-
sor I've ever had because he is
so easy to get along with, and
he doesn't micromanage -
he trains his supervisors thor-
oughly and then puts trust in
their, judgment. He also
stands up for his employees
he is always there for you
when you need him. And if
you don't need him, he leaves,
you alone to do yotu job.
"This is not a one-person
operation by any means," she


said. "We have a real team
effort, with the drivers, the
foremen and clerical staff, as
well as the city administration
and leaders all working to-
ward the same objective -
excellent customer service.
"We get very few com-
plaints," she said, "and we
always do very well on cus-
tomer surveys. Our employ-
ees have decided they don't
ever want to wear Waste
Management (or any other
outside contractor) shirts, so
they work hard to make the
operation succeed.
"The garbage man," Gar-
dow added, "is sometimes the
only city employee a resident
actually sees on a regular ba-
sis, either in front of their
home or out on the road. I tell
our drivers that they repre-
sent the city to the public, so
we want them to make a'good
impression every time,
whether it's the way they
drive, the way they do their
work or the way they relate to
people.
'After supervising this de-
partment for 25 years," she
concluded, "I have only one
thing to say: Garbage is beau-
tiful you gotta love it!"

Coastal Health enters lawsuit against county


The Department of
Justice has sued
Sarasota County over
housing codes for he
disabled. It involves a
complex of six Warm
Mineral Springs houses
known as Tammi
House.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A Sarasota-based organi-
zation that has provided
mental health and sub-
stance abuse services to
Southwest Florida residents
for more than 30 years
recently joined the U.S.
Justice Department's civil
rights lawsuit against
Sarasota County for leged
housing discrimination.
On Aug. 18, Coastal
Behavioral Health Care filed
a motion to intervene with
the U.S. Middle District
Court of Florida in Tampa
and became a plaintiff
against the county because
it jointly owns six disputed
Warm Mineral Springs
group care homes known as
Tammi House.
On June 30, the federal law
enforcement agency an-
nounced it will prosecute the
county for refusing to allow
Renaissance Manor a co-,
owner with Coastal to'
operate the housing complex
for individuals with mental
illnesses and a history of sub-
stance abuse.
The Sevilla Street houses
provide a supportive environ-
ment for up to six residents
each, but are otherwise simi-
lar to others in the communi-
ty. County officials .detet
nmined they violate the zoning
code because there is not
1,000 feet of separation
between them.
"Residents of these homes
should not be refused an
equal opportunity for hous-
ing in their community," said
Assistant U.S. Anorney Gen-
eralWan J. Kim when the suit
was filed. "The Justice De-
partment is committed to
preventing such housing dis-
crimination."
'Bad advice'
Coastal Behavioral for-
merly known as Coastal
Recovery began as a one-
room Sarasota storefront
operation with three employ-
ees in 1971, and has since
expanded to 23 locations in
six Southwest Florida coun-
ties with more than 400
employees.
"Our board of directors
decided it was time to join
with the Justice Department
in this case," said Dr. Jerry
Thompson, the organization's
president and chief operating
officer. "The county commis-
sioners are honorable people,
but they've received bad
advice from their staff."
Tammi House has been in
business for 10 years. It
received a favorable county
zoning determination in
2003, and building permits in
2004 to replace several of the
existing houses with new
ones. Then county officials
reversed course.
In July 2004, they notified
Renaissance Manor that the
six houses would be classified
under a Florida law as "com-
munity residential homes,"
and as such could not be
located within 1,000 feet of
each other. They tried to close
five of them.
In October 2004, the
county board of zoning
appeals heard testimony
from Warm Mineral Springs
neighbors who were op-
posed to the Tammi House
operation, and voted to
uphold the ruling that the
houses must have at least
1,000 feet of separation.


Unsettled
Based on those decisions,
the county refused to release


grant funds previously a-
warded to Renaissance Man-
or. The refusal resulted in
other grant money being
withheld that wasn't adminis-
tered by the county. Rena-
issance charged discrimina-

Thompson said. "My .impres-

Committees may advise school board on finances, facilities


BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
PELICAN PRESS


In just a few months, the
Sarasota County School
Board could have as many as
three committees in place to
help it make decisions on
future budgets and construc-
tion projects
as well as the --
handling of
historic struc-
tures on cam-
puses where
new facilities .
are needed.

their Aug. 8
work session, Todd
board mem-
bers asked Superintendent
Gary Norris to bring them
recommendations in Sept-
ember regarding modifica-
tions of the work of the estab-
lished Financial Advisory
Committee, information
about a capital projects advi-
sory group that aided the
board in the 1990s and the
potential for forming a his-
toric preservation subcom-
mittee.
Chair Carol Todd raised
the discussion by pointing
out that the Financial
Advisory Committee had a
few openings. She asked the
other four board members
whether they would be inter-
ested in charging that group
with studying budget issues
such as the discretionary
millage rate and transfers
between the capital and gen-
eral operating funds, then
making suggestions to the
board.
The committee was estab-
lished prior to the 2002 coun-
ty referendum on the special
1-mill tax for education. Its
work on district finances,
Todd told the Pelican Press,
was summed up in the report
used by the Citizens for Better
Schools to promote the refer-
endum, which passed.
,Narris pointed out during
th work session that 'the
committee members are
business and professional
people. During the interview,.
Todd called them "profes-
sionals who are accom-
plished in
their fields
spending .
time to help ,
the district."
When Vice
Chair Frank
Kovach ques-
tioned
whether the
committee Benson
was reporting
just to Norris now,, not to the
board, Norris responded that


the group met with him and
other district officials. "I think
... the suggestion," Norris
added, is "tb move (the com-
mittee) back more into the
role where they meet periodi-
cally" with the board.
Fresh eyes
Board member Kathy
Kleinlein suggested the com-
mittee report to the board
four times
each year on
issues the
board directs
it to study. She
agreed with
Todd that "the
more specific
the questions
we ask, the
better" for the Norris
committee to
be able to offer assistance on
budget matters.
Board member Laura
Benson questioned whether
it might be a good idea to
appoint new members to the
committee, with the potential
help "a fresh set of eyes" could
provide.
Todd pointed out the
"huge learning curve to learn
about thdie budget," while cur-
rent members already have
considerable knowledge a-
bout district processes.
Kovach countered that, by
its nature, the committee
would be composed of"pret-
tv bright financial people"
who should have no trouble
learning what is necessary to
be effective in adiing the
board.
He added. "If you increase
ithe current board's) respon-
sibilities, you may have more
Sa ca ncies
than those
a I read
noted.
Benson
suggest ed
Norris talk
withe the cur- s o
rent members
about,. under-
taking more Kleintelrn-l "
i-n.- depth I,
tasks and report on the
responses he receives.
Significance
Kovach questioned
whether the committee
members would want to
spend "a considerable
amouts of time researching"
matters, if all of them had
substantial job responsibili-
ties.
When Norris suggested
they could ask district staff for
data, Kovach responded. "I
have just learned over time
that the information that you
get (from staff) isn't always


the most bal-
anced infor-
mation for .
the decision
you're trying
to make ....
I'm not sure I
would want
the Financial
Advisory Kovach
Committee
led somewhere if we want to
know what their opinion is on
something."
Kleinlein pointed out that


raw data were available in the
district,, adding the board
could meet with the mem-
bers and ask how they want-
ed information to be made
available to them.
Regarding a new capital
advisory committee, Norris
said, "We've got some
tremendous capital issues
facing the district." Such a
committee, he said, could
look at the district's five-year,
and 10-year construction
plans and make recommen-


dations about the timeliness
of completing projects.
Kleinlein suggested a sub-
set of that committee could
work on the issue of how to
deal with the district's historic
properties. She already has
had offers of money and help
for such an effort, she added.
Todd proposed the district
form a separate group, com-
-posed of architects, engineers
and community members,
for that purpose.
"Some buildings (in the


district) are not necessarily
historical buildings but have
community significance," she
added.
Still, Benson said, for them
to be most effective, the capi-
tal advisory committee and
the historic properties com-
mittee need to communicate.

Study reveals much about recreational boaters


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

It probably comes as no
surprise that boating plays a
central role in the coastal
lifestyle of Florida.
The National Marine Man-
ufacturers Association says
we're ranked No. 1 in the
nation in recreational boat
registrations with more than
946,072 registered or titled
pleasure boats.
That translates to roughly
one boat for every 17 Florida
residents.
A recent study commis-
sioned by Sarasota County
cites Florida as the primary
U.S. destination for marine
recreation, with an estimated
4.3 million participants. The
study was prepared by a
group of marine scientists. It
suggests that with all those
boaters converging on our
waterways, coastal bays and
estuaries, there has been a
significant impact upon the
coastal environment.
One way to understand
that impact is to learn who
the boaters are and what they
do out there on the water.

The study revealed that
restaurant visits and fishing


were the two most popular
activities, followed by cruis-
ing, sightseeing and nature
viewing. Primary detractions
were lack of courtesy and/or
seamanship and congestion.
Boaters in the study
believed that infrastructure
improvements and better
access to the water, along
with greater enforcement of
existing boating regulations
would do most to improve
their recreational boating
enjoyment.
Congestion was another
topic of interest, in the study.
Hot spots included Venice


Inlet (used as a route by 32
percent of the respondents)
and New Pass (30 percent) as
the most heavily traveled
waterways.
They were followed by Big
Sarasota Pass (22 percent),
Stump Pass in Charlotte
County (10 percent) and
Longboat Pass (7 percent).
The most popular destination
was Sarasota Bay, sought out
by 53 percent of the boaters.
Amy H. Meese, general
manager of the Natural
Resources department of
Sarasota County, and Matt R.
Osterhoudt, project scientist,


hoped the study would "shed
new light on the ongoing
efforts to protect the mana-
tee, prioritize and improve
waterway access and mainte-
nance, optimize boat facility
siting, ensure public safety
and appropriately allocate
resources."
Osterhoudt said it wouldn't
solve the 'problems it out-
lined, -but identifying them
was the first step in that direc-
tion.

Local schools share in A++ school recognition funds


STAFF REPORT


Gov. Jeb Bush and state
education leaders have
announced $157.6 million in
funding to 1,799 Florida
schools in recognition of aca-
demic achievement and
improvement during the
2005-2006 school year.
That's more than five times
the number of schools and
funding first rewarded
in .1999. As part of the A+
School Recognition Program,
schools that achieve an '"A"'
based on the school grading
criteria or improve at least one
grade from the previous year,
are awarded $100 per student.
Since 1999, Florida has award-
ed more than $852.7 million in


school recognition funding.
Bush marked the announ-
cement by presenting checks
to Webb Middle School in.
Tampa and Sadler Elemen-
tary in Orlando. Both schools
received recognition funds
for,academic success.
Education Commissioner
John L. Winn, K-12 Public
Schools Chancellor Cheri
Pierson Yecke, Ph.D., State
Board of Education Vice.
Chair T. Willard Fair and State
Board of Education Members
Donna Callaway, Phoebe
Raulerson and Kathleen'
Shanahan also visited schools
throughout the state to honor
their achievement.
Recognition funds are allo-
cated based on a joint deci-


sion by, a school-appointed
committee of teachers and
administrators. Funds can be
used by a school for one-time
faculty incentives such as
educational equipment, new
technology or staff bonuses,
or hiring temporary person-
nel to assist in maintaining
and improving student per-
formance.
Florida schools earned a
record number of "A" and "B"
grades in 2006 more than
any previous year.
Since 1999, when the A+
Plan for Education was
implemented, schools have
improved from only 515
schools earning an 'A" or "B"
to 2,077 schools in 2006 -,
four times the number of


high-performing schools
seven years ago and 234 more
than last year (up from 1,843).
Three of every four Florida
schools were considered high
performing in 2006. At the
same time, the number of fail-
ing schools is on the decline,
down to a fourth of the number
of failing schools in 1999. This
year; there are 142 "D" and "F"
schools compared to 677
schools seven years ago.
A++ Plan for Education
This year, the Florida
Legislature approved Bush's
A++ Plan for Education to
increase the rigor and rele-
vance of Florida's middle and
high schools.

Enrollment saga symbolizes district's changes


BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
PELICAN PRESS

After lower-than-expected
enrollment last year, the
trend may be reversing some-
what: At the 10-day count in
August, the district had
42,690 students; 42,224 had
been expected.
Superintendent Gary,
Norris told the Pelican, "It
looks like we may have as.
many as 1,200 new students"
as the school year progresses.-
A number of elementary
schools in the district were
seeing lower enrollment than
anticipated, according to the
10-day count. Altogether,
those schools reported 16,806
students, 322 below the dis-
-trict projection.
Norris said that figure
underscored the validity of
the administrative decision
taken July 27 to freeze hiring
at the elementary school
level. That freeze was lifted
*1/


after the district took its five-
day enrollment count on Aug.
11.
For the middle schools, the
10-day count -showed only
nine fewer students than
anticipated. However, the dis-*
trict'ssix high schools report-
ed 572 more students than
expected.
Booker High School was
127 above its projected count,
while Sarasota High School
reported 128 more students.
The only regular high school
program with fewer students
than anticipated was Cyesis,
with 103. Cyesis is designed
for teen parents.
Asked about the higher
numbers' at Bookei and
Sarasota high schools, Norris
responded, "I'm not a demo-
graphic .expert, (but) my gen-
eral observation is ,thdt
maybe some of the mass exo-
dus (of people from ihe cornm-
munity) has slowed down a
little bit."


He added, "I think it's too
early to say we're back to the
growth we were experiencing
in the 2004-05 year."
Openings
Higher housing prices,
school officials said, were the
primary reason behind the
district's enrollment growth,
of only .4 percent from 2004-
05 to 2005-06. Already, the 10-
day count for 2006-07 shows
growth of 2.75 percent.
As a result of the higher
numbers, more teachers are
being hired at the elementary
and secondary levels, Norris"
said.
On Aug. 24, the district's
Human Resources Depart-
ment had openings for.53
new teachers. Sarasota High
School, with six open posi-
tions; and Lamarque Elemen-
tary, with 10, were the schools
most in need of extra staff,
according to that posting.
" "B'ecause of the significance
V> i-IN. i!


of the bonding that takes
place in clasqrpoms in the
first days of a school year,
school board members had
expressed concern about
teachers and students having
to be moved after the start of
school. Norris said it
appeared only four teachers
v.ould have to be relocated at
this point.
Norris still is hoping to
develop a better way of track-
ing the movement of families
out of the county, to help with
future enrollment projections.
During the school board's Aug.
1 meeting, he noted how diffi-
cult it was for staff "to geta han-
dle on family mobility" during
the summers. .
Parents may choose to
leave the area without letting
school officials know. To help
deal with that, he has asked a
team to explore "creative
ways that we can check all
through the summer what's
happening." '0


will now be required to com-
plete 12 core academic cours-
es (three each in English,
math, science and social
studies), as well as one course
in career and education plan-
ning, in order to be promoted
to high school. .
High school students are
now required to complete an
additional math credit for
graduation and choose' a
major area of interest. These
measures will better prepare
students for postsecondary
education andthe workforce.

Turtle Beach campground given 18-month reprieve


The former Siesta Key
fish camp has been a
travel trailer park for
more than 50 years.
Sarasota County
recently purchased it
for $6.2 million to link
two publicly owned
sites.


the site was occupied by tiny
cabins and operated as a fish
camp in the,1920s.
Part of the plan.
The county's motives for
buying the campground ex-
tend beyond simply connect-
ing two publicly owned beach-


front parcels. It also qualifies
the countyto receive $1 million
of state revenue when beach
restoration projects are
approved.
The $6.2 million expendi-
ture was part of a county plan
to buy waterfront parcels as
they become available. Other


recent purchases include $2.6
million for Snook Haven on
the Myakka River and $16
million for a Blackburn Point
Road parcel that will become
boat ramps.
Last year, county voters
approved the sale of $250 mil-
lion worth of bonds to


,finance the additional pur-
chase of environmentally
sensitive lands, with the
caveat that a portion of the
money be used to buy desir-
able parcels for public park
areas.
The county commission
has determined that about 60.


percent of the money will be
used to buy environmentally
sensitive parcels, and 40 per-
cent on public park lands. It is
the first significant pot of
money the county has creat-
ed for the purchases of park-
related sites such as boat
ramps.


AL S OR S PE OD Y A -7 M Al Frntue aler-sopn**o-6p*


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


A popular Siesta Key land-
mark that introduced many
visitors to Sarasota County
beach vacations has been
given an 18-month reprieve
and will remain open under
revised operating rules while
park officials draft a long-
term plan for the entire Turtle
Beach area.
A divided county commis-
sion agreed to continue
accepting Gulf Beach Camp-
ground reservations, but limit
them to no more than 14
days. Some vacationers have
routinely booked spaces at
the beachfront facility for up
to six months.
Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson made it known up
front she is opposed to the
campground staving open on
a permanent basis.
"We didn't spend $6 mil-
lion to buy this so it could be
monopolized by a few peo-
ple," she said. "Beaches are
for thousands of people."
Others see it differently.
"We held public meetings
on Aug. 1 and Aug. 3," County
Parks Director John MlcCarthy
said. "Of the 155 surveys we
received, 86 percent of the
ApiUc.J a.dicaled thev want

our staff members are now
running the operation."
Commissioner Ion Tha\-
ton said he did not mind the
campground, but felt rule
changes were necessary.
"There should be enhan-
ced provisions for tent camp-
ing," he said, "and a 14-day
limit on stays. That's how long
people are allowed in federal'
campgrounds."
Money matters
The decision to temporari-
ly continue operations was
based on economics.
"It's going to take time
for us to approve a plan,"
Commissioner Shannon Staub
said. "\\Ve should allow this to
remain open and generate
some income, but I think it
should eventually be reduced
in size."
On Jan. 25, the camp-
ground was purchased for a
$6.2 million, despite the fact it
is only 108 feet wide at the
water's edge. A developer was
poised to buy it and build
condominiums on the site. It
will link 11-acre Turtle Beach
to the south with a 6-acre
beach to the north.
A narrow 1.8-acre sliver
of land, the campground
stretches 700 feet from Mid-
night Pass Road to the Gulf of
Mexico. It has only 48 spaces
for recreational vehicles, trav-
el trailers and tents, but rarely
lacks for business and has
been a winter refuge for many
long- time visitors.
Public records indicate the
campground opened in the
1940s, and that in recent
years it has operated at about
95 percent occupancy. There
is further historical evidence

Tuesday's ballot features rare universal primary


All registered voters are eligible to decide the
Sarasota County Commission contest, as well as


seVeral nonpartisan races

BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A summer of sometimes
stormy local politics arrives at
its first crossroads Tuesday
when Sarasota County voters
choose a new District 2 coun-
ty commissioner and decide
which Democrats and Re-
publicans will move ahead as
finalists in Nov. 7 general elec-
tion races.
Most contests are closed
primaries in which registered
Republicans vote for Repub-
licans and Democrats for
Democrats, but the commis-
sion race is a rare universal
primary because the three
candidates are Republicans,
and everyone regardless of
party affiliation -'gets to
choose.
While the polls will be
open from 7 a.m. to 7 p,m.,
thousands of residents have
continued the trend of either.
voting early or absentee. In
the 2004 general election,
about 38 percent of county's
voters opted for an alternative
to appearing at a precinct.
Those who didn't register
with Supervisor of Elections
Kathy Dent's office before
Aug. 7 are ineligible to vote in
Tuesday's primary. elections.
They have until Oct.,10 to sign
up for the decisive Nov. 7 gen-
eral election that includes
state and federal offices.
The primary ballot will
help set the stage for several
high-profile showdowns when.
Democrats chose their guber-
natorial preference between
Jim Davis and Rod Smith, and
Republicans pick their finalist
between Charlie Crist and.
Tom Gallagher.
Republicans will also get to


choose their standard bearer
for the U.S. Senate; contest
against incumbent Democrat
Bill Nelson. On name recog-
nition, Katherine Harris re-
mains the favorite over new-
comers LeRoy Collins Jr., Will,
McBride and Peter Monroe.
Congress
The local political scene has
been dominated by two con-
tests, a seven-way U.S. District
13 congressional battle to suc-
ceed Harris between five
Republicans and two Demo-
crats, and the race to replace
District 2 County Commis-
sioner David Mills between
three Republicans.
Four of the five Republicans
running for Congress Vern
Buchanan, Donna Clarke,
Nancy Detert and Tramm
Hudson are from Sarasota
County, which means Mana-
tee County resident Mark
Flanagan could spring an
upset if his community votes
as a bloc.
Buchanan and Hudson
entered the Republican race
as front-runners because of
their well-financed cam,
paigns, but got into a mud-
slinging match that opened
the door to popular State Rep.
Nancy Detert of Venice, who-
is term-limited out of her'
Florida District 70 house seat.
Democratic contenders
Christine Jennings and Jan
Schneider faced each other in
20p4. Schneider prevailed,
then lost to Harris in the gen-
eral election. With Harris out,
and Jennings coming, on
strong, Democrats feel they
have a chance this year.
County commission
On the county level, the


race to replace Mills could
produce a change in the way
development and growth are
dealt with at the highest level
of local government. If the
primary was closed to -Re-
publican voters, pro-growth
forces would probably feel
,more secure.
But- the decision was
thrown open to all voters
when a write-in candidate
withdrew in the face of a
court challenge, so about
130,000 Democrats and
Independents --many sym-
pathetic to slow growth and
environmental protection --
are eligible to participate.
The candidates are former
planning commissioner Joe
Barbetta, former Sarasota
County School Board mem-
ber John Lewis and former
county employee Casey
Pilon. Barbetta is generally
perceived as a slow-growth
advocate, Pilon as pro-growth
and Lewis somewhere in the
middle.
In other races
Florida House District 70
was also thrown open when
term limits forced Detert to
step aside. The field' of six
includes Republicans Rory
Dubin, Doug Holder, Jon
Kleiber and Elizabeth Cue-
vas-Nuender, and Democrats
David Shapiro .and Ernest'
Zavodnyik.
There are also four school
board seats at stake, with lisa
Glenn, Tammy St. Mary and
Carol Todd vying in District 1,
Larry Helmuth, Bob Long and
Caroline Zucker in District 2,
Shirley Brown and Carol
Williams in District 4, and
Kathy Kleinlein and Jim
Lawless in District 5.
There will be no rfferen-
dum questions on the prima-
ry ballot, but several may be
included on the general elec-
tion ballot.

Voting machine question



triggers flurry of activity


Advocates want the county to buy equipment
that produces verifiable paper ballot receipts. The
county attorney believes portions of the petition
may conflict with state election laws.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

When Sarasota County re-
cently balked and refused to
put a citizens' charter amend-
ment proposal about voting
machines on the Nov. 7 gen-
eral election ballot, it set off a
series of lawsuits that could
force the local circuit court to
rule expeditiously.
On Aug. 22, the county
commission followed the ad-
vice of its legal staff and asked
the court to, determine
whether any portions of the
proposal drafted by the
Sarasota Alliance for Fair
Elections are ii violation of
Florida election,laws.
Rather than wait for a rul-
Sing on the county's request,
the Alliance immediately filed
suit and asked for a court
order that would force Sara-
sota County and ,Supervisor
of Elections Kathy Dent to
place the referendum ques-
tion on the ballot.
"Florida law discourages
pre-election court reviews of
issues such as this," said Sara-
sota attorney Thomas Shults,
who is representing the Al-
liance. "The exception is peti-
tions for Florida Constitu-
tional amendments. We are
confident of getting this mea-
sure on the ballot."
Deadline
Sarasota Cqunty is one of
only 15 in Florida that relies
solely on electronic touch-
screen voting machines inca-
pable of pririting verifiable
paper ballot receipts for
recounts. The Alliance has
.gathered more than 14,000


signatures bn a petition to
require equipment that can.
On June 30, Dent certified
the proper number of signed
petitions had been submitted
to compel a special election
on the matter, but the county
commission didn't respond
until Aug. 22. A lengthy legal
delay could result in the vot-
ing machine question being
left off the ballot.
In 2001, the county spent
$4.7 million to buy 1,615
ES&S iVoltronic paperless
voting machines. New ES&S
equipment is available with
printers that produce a paper
trail, but inexplicably it isn't
state certified.
Dent has defended the
paperless machines and in-
sisted they produce accurate
results, but their reliability
has been called into question
by elections' experts who'
claim they can be tampered
with. Nevada recently order-
ed printers attached to all its
touch-screen machines.
On Aug. 22, County At-
torney Steve DeMarsh told
the county commission,
"We've identified a number of
(petition) provisions that
appear to copflict with the
state election code. If the
commission is in doubt, it
should seek declaratory relief
in the courts."
DeMarsh said a ruling
must be handed down by
Sept. 15 if the charter propos-
al is to appear on ballots
mailed to members of the
armed forces and out-of-
town residents who are regis-
tered to vote in the county.
The commission agreed' to.
seek court action.

The petition language De-
Marsh and his staff found
most troublesome concerns a
requirement that all voting
machines produce verifiable
paper receipts. He said it
could violate state statute
provisions adopted to protect
disabled voters.
Up to the judges
No fewer than three circuit
court judges have been
brought into the voting ma-
chine case. Judge Deno Eco-
nomou has ordered the coun-
ty to show cause why the
charter proposal should not
appear on the ballot, while
Judge Becky Titus was review-
ing the county's concerns.
Chief Judge Robert Beri-
nett directed the consolida-
tion of the cases to attempt to
resolve the matter in time for
the Nov.'7 ballot:
"The county commission
didn't act for a month and:a
half," Shults said, "and now
we're struggling to get this
before a judge in time." ;
If the court delays beyond
a Sept. 15 deadline for print-
ing the ballot, but ultimately
decides the charter amend-
ment should be put before
,voters, it could cost the coun-
ty more than $250,000 to hold
a special election on the vot-
ing machine issue.




HEARING DATE.
SAFE's petition for an order
putting the paper-trail
amendment on the ballot,
arid the county's request for a

petition, will be heard

County gets $200,000 for
Honore Trail Park
Sarasota County has received a $200,000 grant designated
for amenities at Honore Trail Park, one of the county's
newest parks. Florida State Rep. Nancy Detert, R-Venice,
presented a ceremonial check from the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection, Division of
Recreation and Parks, to the county commissioners and
representatives of Sarasota County Parks and Recreation'
at the commission's regular meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 22
Honore Trail Park is under development at the corner
of Bee Ridge Road and Honore Ave. in Sarasota, with an
anticipated public opening in 2008. The $200,000 grant
for the park comes from Florida's Recreation
Development Assistance Program (FRDAP).

Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP). The
plan was developed in response to public surveys about
the amenities families enjoy in parks throughout Florida.

An Open Letter to the

People of the 13th District

from Vern Buchanan


September 3, 2006.

Dear Fellow Citizen,

When we began this campaign over a year ago, we had high hopes as we anticipated
talking about the issues that will shape the world in which we and our children will live.

I guess it was nayve to expect a totally positive campaign, but for nearly a year, we talked
about issues without even mentioning our opponents. We were the first campaign to
identify illegal immigration as a major issue and to call for securing'the border as a top
national priority.

Then one candidate in particular launched a negative attack that continues even now, just
before election day, when it's too late to answer the charges and get the truth out. I feel
these negative charges must be addressed.

So, for the record, I have never been bankrupt, or "out of business". In fact, we've
created thousands of jobs and employ several hundred people today. We are involved in
dozens of community organizations and we believe in giving back. We've been involved
in the civic and charitable affairs of our communities, and win or lose, we will continue to
be involved. It's just something we believe in. _
.9pbut ,aE moc-t.o r i'.:,m ,.6 .' r[i 1to .-qdm cr .0 h'4 .T D,,d r.no Thr r m Rt .i_, "(rov .-...... ... ...... . ..... ... .. .. .... ...... ..
n;; i: I always pay my taxes. It is, offensive to allege that my family is in any way a "tax cheat",
as one ad claims. That's why my attorneys sent a letter to Tramm Hudson advising him to
pull his false ads or face the consequences of making libelous charges.

Trammn's latest attack is against a company named for, and owned by, my boys James and
S Matt. Like all our businesses, "Jamatt" is legal, ethical and all its taxes are paid. But
shouldn't families be off limits foi these negative campaigns?

The real issues are securing America and supporting our troops, securing our border
against illegal immigration, protecting Social Security and making property insurance ,
more affordable.

Ronald Reagan taught us that being positive and optimistic about America will produce
great results. I realize I'm no Ronald Reagan, but I do believe that the right leadership
can still make us a shining city on a hill.

I am very grateful to all the citizens of our district who welcomed us into their homes
and hearts, and I will always remember your generosity and support.

Thank you for your consideration, and I would be deeply honored by your vote of
support. God bless you, and God Bless America.

OUR VIEW




Don't reward stealth candidate's dirty tricks


although we make recommendations
each election season, we don't become
advocates for the candidates who earn
our endorsement or critics of their oppo-,
nents.
This year, however, we feel compelled to
deviate from that practice because a
Republican candidate for House District 70
has, in our opinion, decided to win the seat
at all costs, and as a result is making a mock-
ery of the electoral process.
In our editorial of Aug. 20, we recom-
mended Rory Dubin in this race, based on
his experience and his greater knowledge of
the issues and the area. In that same editori-
al we said that his opponents were not qual-
ified to represent us because they hadn't
done their homework.,
We didn't say so in the editorial, but that
was particularly the case with Doug Holder,
who had lived in the. area only a year after
moving here from Palm Beach.
Call us old-fashioned, but we think a rep-
resentative should have at least a passing
familiarity with his constituents and the


issues that are important to them. Ayear isn't
a long time, but it's certainly long enough to
get educated and become a credible candi-
date, if you want to wvork at it. Holder hadn't.
What he has been doing is avoiding public
forums in favor of blanketing South County
with signs huge and small to build name
recognition without telling anyone a thing
about what he stands for. '
He paid for those signs from awar chest of
several hundred thousand dollars, most of
which he and his family contributed. He has
amassed, and will spend, more in this race
than any other House race in the state.
Those riches have also funded: a fatuous
TV ad that touted his attractive wife as one of
his political assets;, some ."push polls" -
ostensibly neutral surveys whose real pur-
pose is to slant opinion against.his oppo-
nents, primarily Dubin; and, it appears, a
number of flagrantly misleading flyers.
These mailings purport .to come from.
Concerned Citizens of Florida Inc., a group
formed Aug. 21 by David Wolfson, a political
guru whose company Opinion Strategies Inc.


has been paid about $29,000 by Holder since ,still think Dubin is the better candidate in
Jan. 13, this race. If you disagree, don't vote for him.

You have the power


to make them change


BOB VEDDER
F 1[ BSH1


We all say that we are sick
of politics as usual.' We say
that it gets worse every year
and that we hate the way, our
legislators, both state and fed-
eral, behave.
We say we really hate
mean-spirited political races.
We despise representatives
who only vote as their party
tells them to.
In spite of this, the political
parties have determined that
there is a formula to perpetu-
ate this and get elected. It
goes like this: Raise a lot of
money, because money is
power. Get good endorse-
ments. Get the. support of'
your party if you can.
In some cases, seek out a
race with a weak field so as
not to expose your weakness-
es. Do this even if you have to
move a long distance. Make
sure you memorize the party
line and don't vary from it.
The formula for informing
the public goes like this: You
begin by putting out as many
signs as you can find spots for.
You make them bigger or as
eye-catching as possible. You
could have unusual shapes or
colors. Make sure you get the
most flattering picture you
can find, even if it doesn't look
like you at all. Don't forget to
include your family, if they're
photogenic.
Then you spend some
money on nice, issue-related
sound bites on TV and slick
flyers in the mail. If you have
buckets of money, spend
some on expensive polls that
try to slant people's opinions
about you and your oppo-
nents.
If you are behind accord-
ing to your polling, then turn
ugly and start attacking your
opponent. Even go so far as to
have a shell group call your
opponent aliar-but not say
what he supposedly is Iling
about.
The two high-profile races
are the State House 70 and
Congressional District 13
races. This is where the abus-
es are the most flagrant, even
though the candidates signed
a pledge not to be negative.
The formula says only
send your flyerss to the real


voters, that is, the people who
actually voted in the last elec-
tion. You get spared this mail
if you don't vote.
They know that the same
people, by and large, vote
each election. They assume
They will get the new voters or
,'.the. ones charged up. to. vote
this year with their TV ads. I
think this misses a lot of votes.
This year's contest empha-
sizes howy money buys elec-
tions. There will be $6 million
to $8 million spent on this
Congressional election, most
of it by two candidates while
another one has been scoop-
ing up most of the newspa-
pers endorsements.
Will the public be able to
see through all the negative
campaigning and putt in
office candidates that have
original ideas and the ability
to stand on their own?
Probably not, but we hope so
if we are going to break the
formula.
The other point that is dis-
turbing is candidates that run
who have been in our area
only avery short time, though
they fry to give the appear-
ance they have been here a
long time.
Unfortunately, the people
who make the laws are the
ones elected through this
poorly designed system. So
they perpetuate it. We allow
candidates to have signs we
don't allow others to have; we
allow telephoning by them
that we stop others from
doing by having do-not-call
lists.
I hope that maybe, just
maybe, this year we elect peo-
ple who are the most quali-
fied, whether they are rich or
poor;, who know the issues,
have some new ideas .and
have connections to our com-
munity.

Commission districts are meaningess


Editor:
The letter from Costa Xistris entitled, North County contin-
ues to dominate, really struck home.
The writer complains about the "wall-to-wall development"
that is coming to plague Venice and the need to move the
county offices to a more central location because county com-
missioners do not seem to represent the desires of folks in the
South County area. This is true, but the point that I think needs
to be emphasized is that although each commissioner is sup-
posed to represent one of the five commission districts, the
entire county populace votes them into office. So where is the
representation?, ,
If voters in the northern districts can elect South County
commissioners then those of us in the southern districts have
no representation. If, as the writer correctly asserts, there is a
built-in bias toward the interests of the North County-Sarasota
city area, moving the offices will have no effect.
It only stands to reason that North County voters will con-
tinue to determine who is elected to the commission seats and
dictate policy for South County residents. If this isn't a recipe
for "political chicanery," I don't know what is.
I do not know why we go through this charade of pretend-
ing to have individual district seats, unless of course, chicanery
is the objective.
Let us not be fooled. We do not have separate districts. We
have five like-minded commissioners who function more like
the commissars in the local governments of communist coun-
tries.
It was not always this way, and we must demand that this
injustice be addressed.

Jews have varying
opinions about crisis

Editor:
Recently there have been
numerous letters which
praise and defend Israel. This
rather one-dimensional view


brought to my mind a very
comprehensive letter which
appeared in the New York
Times of Nov. 23, 2004:
"The Israeli government
for many years pushed for-
ward with misguided policies
including expansion ofsettle-


ments in the West Bank and a
unilateral attempt to grab
land by building a wall that
cut deep into Palestinian ter-
ritory.
"The only alternative to
endless war is a comprehen-
sive settlement based on sim-'
ple but radical principles:
1) Israeli and Palestinian
lives are equally precious.
2) The Israeli and Palestin-
ian peoples have equal rights
to self determination and to
live in peace and security.
3) The Israeli and Palestin-
ian people have equal rights
to a fair share of the land and
resources of historic Pale-
stine.
"The United States bears a
special responsibility for the
current tragic impasse by vir-
tue of our massive economic
and military support for the
Israeli government: $500 per
.Israeli citizen per year. Our
country has an extraordinary
leverage on Israeli policy, if
only our government would
dare to use it. Our govern-
ment should make continued
aid conditional on Israeli ac-
ceptance of an international-
ly 'agreed two-state settle-
ment."
The letter appeared on a
full page in the New York
Times, signed by thousands
of Jewish-Americans who had
the courage to point out some
truths about the United


States, Israel and the crisis, in
the. Middle East. They appar-
ently felt that some of Israel's
actions have not been in the
interest of their country, the
United States of America.

Double-taxation
a smokescreen
Editor:
A letter from Betty Martin
repeats the usual misinfor-
mation about the inheritance
tax, claiming it is a tax on
money already hit by income
tax. I think my widowed
mother-in-law's estate is a
perfect example of how dis-
torted that is.
The bulk of her estate was
from the sale of her home,
which had been purchased
for about $10,000 in the early
1950s. It was sold, in the set-
tling of the estate, for several
hundred thousand.
If she had sold it, there
would have been capital
gains tax on the amount over
$250,000. However, because
the estate was less than the
then-million-dollar exemp-
tion, nothing was paid. Even
if the estate had gone over the
$1 million, the taxwould have
only been on the amount
over.
There were also some

have some kind of a program

Because of that a helicopter

somebody was not in shape,

that's just atypical example of
what happens when you let a

That's my personal opinion. If

damn well like to see him

need to.

Conflict resolved,
deal is a win-win,
Editor:
The recent issue concern-
ing the purchase of more than
100 acres of land by the
Nature Conservancy along
the Myakka River raises some
questions that I would like to
address.
The property was pur-
chased prior to the land
boom that we have experi-
enced in the last.two to three
years.
Review.ing documents. it


indicates that the property
owner has done a tremen-
dous amount of work to
develop this property for resi-
dential use. Most, if not all,. of
the permitting had been
acquired. The property is not
entirely marshland, like oth-
ers have indicated in previous
articles. When developed, it
will certainly be a prized area
for future home owners.
But why develop one of the
last parcels of land that has
such a large environmental
and ecological impact on our
immediate surroundings?
The owners are willing to sell
the property to the conser-
vancy, thus preserving *envi-
ronmentally unique property
on North Port's southern
boundary along the Myakka.
It's a win-win for everyone.
Today, responsible, devel-
opment seeks to build new
and lasting partnerships
between local, state and fed-
eral jurisdictions to preserve
and conserve our precious
resources for generations to
come. This acquisition does
exacdy that.
The announcement by
'Sarasota County Adminis-
trator Jim Ley that his wife
will forgo any compensation
in this transaction eliminates,
in mv mind, any obstacle that
may have existed in this siru-


action. Preserve the land
before it becomes an addi-
tional extension of the con-
crete jungle.

Riverview defense
stymies Venice offense
in 28-2 win at Ram Bowl

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The final score looked
more lopsided than the game
really was, but the fact
remains Venice High is
looking for a few guys to step
up and make the big play
when needed.
The Indians didn't get
them Friday night, adding up
to a 28-2 loss to Riverview at
the Ram Bowl.
Riverview improved to 2-0
and Venice fell to 0-2.
Offensive woes and
turnovers plagued the In-
dians in the non-district tus-
sle. They lost two fumbles,
had a pass intercepted and a
shanked punt set up another
Ram score.
"You can't play this type of
team and make mistakes,"
Venice head coach Nick
Coleman said. "This one
hurts. It's a backyard rival."
A fumble by. quarterback
Kyle Callahan gift-wrapped
Riverview's first touchdown
early in the second quarter.
On a second down play from
the Indian -36, Callahan had
the ball swatted away from
him. The ball rolled as players
from both teams tried to
cover it. Riverview finally
recovered at the 1-yard line.
Running back Robert Glinton
scored from there.
The Venice defense played
well the entire first half, keep-
ing the Indians in the game
by limiting the Rams to 15
totalyards.,, ,,, ... .
SThe defining rnoment for
Venice came late in the sec-
ond quarter. A bad pitch by
Ram quarterbackAdam Shaw
to Glinton ended up in the
end zone, resulting in a safety.
The score was 7-2 and
Venice would be getting the-
ball back.
The free kick went out of
bounds and the Indians were
in business at the Ram 35. A
facemask call on a run by Al
Mitchell gave the Indians a
first down at the 18. Mitchell
vent seven yards on a third-
down call to make it first and
goal at the 5-yard line.
A score before halftime
would have given Venice the
lead and big-time momen-
tum heading into the locker
room.
Instead, three runs only
got the ball to the 2 and a
fourth-down option pass play
to Jimmy Laurie was batted
down at the last moment by
defender Steve Brown.
," "The defense gave us a
great opportunity and we
ended up not taking advan-
tage," Coleman said. "We had
two missed assignments at
the goal line. We got in the red
zone and choked a little."
Venice came out flat in the
third quarter and 1-2-3 punt-
ed away.
Then the defense had a let-
down. On the first play from
scrimmage from the Ram 48,
Glinton broke free for a 49-
yard run to the Indian 3. He
scored on the next play to
make it 13-2.
The bad sort of snow-
balled.
A two-yard punt set up
Riverview at the Indian 34-
yard line. Glinton scored
again on an 8-yard run, mak-
ing it 20-2.
Shaw, who was just 2-for-
10 for the game, finally con-
nected on a pretty 70-yard
bomb to Stacey Collier in the
fourth quarter made it 27-2.
Except for the breakaway
early in the third quarter, the
Venice defense did a good job
containing Glinton. Take
away the 49 yard gain, and he
was held to just 44 yards.
Venice had two decent sec-
ond half drives halted by

turnovers. Paul Costanzo,
who is nursing an injured
hand, had the ball stripped
from him at the Ram 30 in the
third quarter and a Callahan
pass was intercepted at the
Ram 20 in the fourth quarter.
Gerry Hunek replaced
Callahan at quarterback late
in the game, but by then it
was too late.
Venice got decent running
games from Mitchell (69
yards), Costanzo (50 yards)
and Lauirie (44 yards), but
couldn't finish the deal and
find the end zone.
The longest Venice play
from scrimmage was a 16-
yard run by Costanzo in, the
third quarter. Dean Richter
led the charge of a string
Riverview linebacking corps.
"Their Mike linebacker is
an outstanding player,"
Coleman said.
"We've got to get consis-

said. "We missed crucial
blocking assignments. We

nicating and paying attention
from the snap to the whistle."

together next, Friday when

While
S backpacks
afford school children the
most efficient method for
carrying books, their misuse
| ican lead to neck and back pain.
In severe cases, nerve damage may
result from an inordinate amount of
weight in a backpack. This should be a
source of concern to many parents,
especially since a recent survey showed
that more than half of the students in
grades 5 through 8 carried backpack loads
I that were heavier than the maximum
Weight recommended by experts. Most say
that a child should carry no more than 15
percent of his or her weight. Regardless of
how much weight a child carries, leaning
forward or straining with a backpack is
an indication that the bag is too heavy.
Make sure your children do not over
pack their backpacks. Children usually
respond quickly to light adjustments
and other chiropractic care. P.S. When a
child complains of pain, numbness, or
tingling as a result of carrying a
backpack, an appointment with the
chiropractor is recommended to check for
nerve impingement.

Manatee seen swimming off of Cape Cod

Manatee seen swimming off of Cape Cod


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Floridians tend to ignore
manatees, those lumbering
half-ton mammals that get
our attention only when they
get tangled up in boat pro-
pellers. But one very adven-
turous member of the species
has been making a big splash
in the Atlantic Ocean waters
off Cape Cod, Mass.
New Englanders are agog
about what is believed to be
an adult male they have dub-
bed "Marvin" observed at Fal-
mouth, Mass., Warwick ,and
Point Judith, R.I., more than
1,000 miles north of Florida.
A snorkeler in the shallow
waters of Gansett Harbor in
Falmouth came across Mar-
vin munching eelgrass on
Tuesday. The snorkeler swam
for about 15 minutes about
an arm's length away with the

STAFF REPORT

A pilot program that cre-
ates a new reporting system
for red tide on Sarasota
County beaches became
available to the public online
Friday, Sept. 1. 1
The system, created in
response to requests for more
current and up-to-date infor-
mation about beach condi-
tions from area residents,
businesses and beachgoers, is
designed to provide regular
daily updates during red-tide
events.
The Beach Conditions
Report will include several
types of information: whether
dead fish are present; whether
there is respiratory irritation
among beachgoers; what the
water color is; the wind direc-
tion; and what flags are cur-
rently flying at the beaches.
The reports will be provid-
ed by Sarasota County life-
guards e-mailing the infor-
mation to Mote MarineLab-
oratory's Sarasota Operations
Coastal Ocean Observation
Laboratory, which has created
software that automatically
updates the information
online.
A telephone number
where the public can hear the
same updates available
online is expected to be
added in the near future.
Reports are scheduled to
be updated at 10 a.m. and 3.
p.m. daily to coincide with
times of the day when people
are most likely to use the
beach. All the informadon is
date-, and time-starmped so
the public knows how recent-
ly a report was.made.
The Beach Conditions
Report is a joint program
funded by the Florida Depart-
ment of Health and imple-
mented by Dr. Barbara
Kirkpatrick, manager of Mote's
Environmental Health Pro-
gram in the Center for
Ecotoxicology, anrid J.R. Ayers,
Sarasota County Lifeguard
Operations Manager.
This new report comes on
the heels of a recently ex-
panded water quality moni-
toring program implemented
by Mote and the Sarasota
County Health Department.
Through the work of Dr.
Richard Pierce, director of
Mote's Center for Ecotox-
icology, and David Pouso, the
health department's Healthy
Beaches Coordinator, health
department staff are collect-
ing additional water samples
so Mote can analyze them for
the presence of red tide.
The water samples com-
plement the county's com-
prehensive monitoring pro-
gram that tests 16 beach loca-
tions for the presence of bac-


teria.

able at www.mote.org/envi-

vin's length at 10 to 12 feet,
and his weight at 1,000 to

Scientists at the Woods

that sightings of manatees for
the past several weeks have
all been of Marvin. The first
sighting was on July 11 off
Ocean City, Md. Three days


later, he was spotted off Del-
aware. From July 22 until Aug.
23, Marvin moved northward
past New Jersey, New York,
Connecticut, Massachusetts
and Rhode Island.
Only 3,000 to 4,000 mana-
tees remain in the world.
They are a fedeally listed en-
dangered species.
Once hunted for food,
their numbers have been


diminished by a loss of habi-
tat in Florida. They can live
longer than 60 years, but they
are easily injured or killed by
boatpropellers, red tide and'
cold temperatures.
Marvin, who has been
swimming 20 to 30 miles a
day, has been charming New
Englanders and puzzling sci-
entists since his arrival off
Cape Cod, Mass. Why, they


wonder,' would the 1,000-
pound gray mammal take
such a long trip north?
One biologist at the U.S.
Geological Survey described
manatees as "savvy naviga-.
tors." She suggested that Mar-
vin's long journey north may
have been encouraged by
curiosity and the unusually
warm waters along the east
coast this summer.


Ocean temperatures at;
Woods Hole were in the mid-:
70s earlier this week. Last year;
they never topped the low,
60s.
"How wonderful this is,"'
remarked the Geological
Survey biologist. "We have'
an opportunity to have an.
animal like this where we:
are, so far from its natural"
habitat."

Daniel Boone began his





dynasty in Venice

- Newlhweds Freda and E.G.
tDanj Boone arrived in Venice
50 years ago, set up housekeep-
ing downtown and. Sept. 4,
1956, set tip a business. The im-
pact on that small town of Ven-
ice has been far greater than
anything they might have imag-
ined so many years ago.
Growing up in Knoxville,
Term., as his family's only son,
Boone vowed to have a career
that would allow him to stay
home. That decision was made
as he watched his own father
depart Knoxville for eight-week
trips in his job as a salesman of
orthopedic surgical equipment
to doctors and hospitals in
seven Southern states.
When the young Boone left
home to join the service as a
pilot, his-parents moved to Lake
City, Fla. Discharged from the
U.S. Army in 1947, he chose to
attend the University of Florida,
earning his bachelor's degree in
1950 and his law degree four
years later. Joining a law firm in
Daytona Beach, he quickly
noticed the firm's most diligent
legal secretary. Their friendship
blossomed. So did their enthu-
siasm to set up a law office in
Southwest Florida.
Arriving in Venice, they rent-
ed an office next to the only
other Venice attorney in the
original Venice Nokomis Bank,
which stood near the current
Bank of America building on
West Venice Avenue. A few
weeks later they learned the
previous 'occupant, also an
attorney, had gone out of busi-
ness. Determined not to follow
in that man's footsteps, Boone
took every case coming his way.
"Those were the days when I
would get a call at 2 a.m. from a
distraught wife who was argu-
ing with her husband," he said.
Venice was still in recovery
from the end of the Florida land
boom and the arrival of the
Great Depression in 1929,
which ended the development
of the city by the Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers. The
BLE had purchased the land
and a plan by John Nolen from
Dr. Fred Albee, setting up the
old Venice Company as its


Florida agent. As the Depres-
sion worsened, the BLE left.
Overnight the city's population
plunged to some 400, and most
of the BLE land reverted to
Albee.
Years later, when Albee died,
his %widow's estate sold his hold-
ings to Venice Company presi-
dent Robert Baynard, who own-
ed the only bank in town and
controlled the city council.
lames Kiernan was the town's
mayor and there were four
additional councilman.
"In those days Venice was
like a wild west frontier town,"
Boone said. "Council meetings


Growth was stagnant. It took
the CAA three years to get three
new people elected as city
councilmen., The city took off
once a bond issue was passed
to fund city water, sanitary sew-
ers and other improvements.
Residents wanted another
bank, so Boone and a friend
prepared a charter application
and three years later First Na-
tional Bank of Venice (now
SunTrust) opened.
Venice needed a post office
building in the worst way. It
operated from a tiny room on
Venice Avenue. There was no
mail delivery. Boone applied for


said.
In 1958, the Boones moved
their office to the second floor
of what is now the site of the-
Comcast office on Nliami Ave-
nue.
Thirteen years later when the
city's growth was taking off and
professionals were moving in,
Boone decided to build a new
building for the firm. Inspired
by colonial American architec-
ture and the Florida Bar head-
quarters in Tallahassee, he con-
tacted architect Joe Clemonds,
commissioning him to design
the Boone building on Avenida
del Circo in Venice.


The Boone building on Avenida del Circo on the island of Venice.


were the greatest free show on
the west coast of Florida."
Realizing that if the city
changed its image it would at-
tract residents,, Boone encour-
aged business colleagues to cre-
ate the Civic Action Association.
Its one purpose was to get peo-
ple elected to city council who
wanted to, and could, move
Venice ahead.


a new post office and two years
later it was built where it now
stands on West Venice Avenue.
Home for the Boones was
two second-floor apartments
above the B & B Bar, a redneck
hangout, on West Venice Ave-
nue.
"Every night when it closed
at 2 a.m., we awoke to patrons
noisily staggering out," Boone


Although he has never
played golf, Boone became
involved when the nine-hole
course the BLE had built fell
into disrepair. Publix and Coun-
try Club Estates Mobile Home
Park on the island acquired the
land, leaving golfers no alterna-
tive but to go to Sarasota or Fort
Myers to play. With the CAA,
Boone worked to get Smyth


Brohard elected mayor, con-
tacted the Federal A-iation Ad-
ministration, obtained ap-
proval for a new golf course on
part of the FAA-controlled air-
port property. and with a
founding group, formed a cor-
poration, borrowed money,
sold the stock and built it with
Brohard as president.
Venice had no cemetery in
those days so when business-
man Tex Pratt wanted to build
one, Boone helped him seek a
state charter, a two-year pro-
ject. The result was Gulf Pines
Memorial Park. Pratt chose to
locate it midway between Ven-
ice and Englewood knowing
both cities would grow. Later
David Farley of the Farley Fu-
neral Homes opened Venice
Memorial Gardens off Center
Road in Venice.
Boone also was involved
with ensuring the airport prop-
erty along the beach would be
deeded to the city in perpetuity.
To do that required trips to
Washington and working with
U.S. Sen. George Smathers.
For more than 20 years,
Boone specialized in hospital
certificate of need work, which
necessitated travel to hospitals
throughout the state and con-
stant trips to Tallahassee. The
law firm acquired a plane and
its own full-time pilot, the late
Jack Ogle.
"I was gone all the time, just
like my father had been, and the
widow Boone, as my wife called
herself, struggled on, as I was
never around," Boone said.
Today he spends most of his
time in town, serving corporate
clients like Venice Yacht Club,
banks, the hospital, the Venice
Golf Association and more.
Asked how he kept up to date
with all the changes in legisla-
tion, he responded that his wife
was a walking law library who
was always up to date with all
the changes, and kept everyone
in the law firm informed.
"She is the best lawyer in the
firm," he said. "In the days
when they had 11 lawyers, she
was the office manager. She ran
the firm for almost 40 years."
Her successor is Louise Lit-
tle.

Origins of Labor Day: forgotten, but not gone


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER
Many people today have
no idea what the Labor Day
holiday was initially founded
on. And, most people view it
as a day off, the unofficial
end of summer or a great day
to buy a car or furniture.
Nevertheless, Labor Day has
strong origins in support of
the American worker that
have somehow become lost
or uncertain.
Labor Day is a holiday
brought forth by the Amer-
ican labor unions who were,
at the time, fighting for work-
ing conditions that would
better America for many
years to come.
The United States Depart-
ment of Labor defines Labor
Day this way, "It is a creation
of the labor movement and
is dedicated to the social
and economic achieve-
ments of American workers.
It constitutes a yearly na-
tional tribute to the condi-
tions workers have made to
the strength, prosperity
and well-being of our coun-
try-,
History says President
Grover Cleveland made Lab-
or Day a federal holiday in
1894. But, the 'record books
can't seem to agree on any
one cause bringing about
the need for national recog-,
nition celebrating American
workers.
It was said that Cleveland's
treatment of the American
worker was harsh. It is also
believed that Cleveland ap-
proved the national recogni-
tion of Labor Day only to
appease American workers
for the upcoming election,
which he lost.
There were two signifi-
cant events that gained
develandds attelitin' regard-'

ing American workers.
On Sept. 5, 1882, roughly
20,000 American workers
took an unpaid day off and
marched in New York City
to demand an 8-hour work
day and other work rights
we take for granted today,
such as safe working condi-
tions and fair wages. This
was all during a time when
the American worker had no
rights in the workplace.'


In 1893, another event
regarding the unfair treat-
ment of workers led to a
protest that gained national
recognition. In 1880, Pull-
man, Ill., was considered to
be a utopia, of sorts, for
workers. The town manu-
factured railroad cars and
prospered under the leader-
ship of its founder George
Pullman. Rents were agree-
able and 'deducted "from


paychecks. In 1893, however, aged railway workers to
an economic depression hit strike. These actions caught
the city of Pullman laying national attention, especially
off many workers and dis- when mail was delayed. The
mantling the system work- strike became increasingly
ers had become accustomed violent, and two people were
to. killed by federal marshall.
Employees called for a Debswasthrowninjailforhis
strike under the leadership efforts, and the ARU was

Railway Union. Debs led a are all but lost to footnotes

ican workers still get the
,day off.
But, whether people still

workers endured to get future
workers such things as the
8-hour work day, safe work-
ing conditions and fair wages
is open to interpretation.

Snakes: Friends or foes?


BY JEFF TAVARES
STAFF WRITER AND
PHOTOJOURNALIST
The Eastern'Diamo back
Rattle snake is one f six.
snakes native to Florida that
are venomous. It actually
ranks as one of the world's
most poisonous snakes.
There are 38 nonvenomous
species also in Florida.
. The Diamondback Rattle-
snake attacks with a venom
that is hemotoxic, which
means its venom attacks the
red blood cells'and the walls
of the blood vessels of the vic-
tim.
According to the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) Web
site, MyFWC.com, this is not a
snake you want to even get
near, never mind engage in
battle.
TheWeb site notes, "Its (the
Diamondback) large body
size, quantity of venom,
aggressive defensive tactic
and tremendous striking
speed make this snake one to
be treated with extreme cau-
tion.
So what should you do
when you see a snake? Attack
it? Not the wisest thing to do.
According to an article by
Craig N., Huegel and David
Cook on the MyFWC.com
Web 'site, here's what to do
when you come across a
snake: "Just stand back and
observe it. Snakes don't pur-
posely position themselves to
frighten people. They'd much
rather avoid encounters and
usually will flee."


SClassified work


Snakes are beneficial
. Snakes, like every living
creature, serve a purpose in
the ecosystem, whether good
or harmful. In the case of
snakes, they have a lot of ben-
efits.
Eating small rodents such
as rats and insects, snakes do
help, particularly in agricul-
ture. Snakes often eat rodents
and insects that destroy
crops.
According to the Uni-
versity of Florida, Institute of
Food and Agricultural
Sciences Web site (edis.ifas.
ufl.edu), "Snakes provide
many beneficial services
including the control of
rodent populations. Some
snake species, such as the
Florida Kingsnake (Lampro-
peltis getula floridana) also
aid in the control of ven-
omous and non-venomous
snakes.
Killing snakes
Craig N. Huegel, a former,
urban wildlife extension spe-
cialist at the University of
Florida, Gainesville, and
Cook, a wildlife biologist with
the FWC since 1986, also have
advice on killing snakes.
"There is no good reason


to kill a snake except in the
unlikely situation of a ven-
omous snake posing immedi-
ate danger to people or pets.
Snakes usually bite people
only if they are molested; it's
their only means of self-
defense," say Huegel and
Cook.
They add, "Even a ven-

omous snake in the woods or
crossing the road poses no
threat and should be left
alone. ... Snakes travel in
large areas, so one you see in
your yard today may be far
away tomorrow." ,
You may not realize'that
after you do kill a snake, and
pick it up, it can kill you.

Web site (flmnh.ufl.edu), after
killing a snake "its reflexes
may continue to work. Those
reflexes typically cause the
body to writhe slowly for
awhile, but they can cause a
convulsive contraction and a
bite, so you should not han-
dle a freshly killed venomous
snake."
Legality of killing snakes
Most states classify snakes
as "nonganme wildlife" and are
not protected. Actually some
species of snakes are listed on
federal or state threatened
and endangered species lists.
Kill one of those and you'll
most likely be talking to a
lawyer.
Florida has no laws pro-
hibiting the killing of snakes.
The FWC, however, does
maintain a list of animals,
including snakes, which it
deems to be endangered,
threatened or of special con-
cern. (See info box on page
11B.)
Florida law does state that
an individual must obtain a
permit to possess live or dead
snake parts if your intention
is to sell them. See s.372.921,
Florida Statute; and Rule 39-
25.0011.

ByVicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I recently purchased
two hearing aids from a
local hearing aid retailer
that advertised, '"buy one -
get the 2nd hearing aid at
half price." They told me
they were digital hearing
aids but they still amplify
a lot of background noise.!
I can't even use them on
the phone because the
whistle. I thought digital
hearing aids were
supposed to work better,
than this. What's wrong?
A. Not all digital hearing
aids are alike! Each
manufacturer has their own
design which may, or may
not, be suitable for you
particular type of hearing
loss. Hearing retail stores
are only allowed to offer the
hearing aids made-by their
manufacturer so they won't
mention many features that
could benefit you. On the
other hand, Audiologists
have access to all hearing
aids and are able to pick and
choose those features which
will be most beneficial to
your lifestyle. Even though
persons like you try their
best to be informed about
different types of hearing
aids, there is simply no way
you can. know all of the
different features available
on a hearing aid and which
ones are right for you. That
is why you should always
seek a second opinion
before making a decision to
purchase hearing aids. If
you had done so, you could
be using hearing aids with
directional microphones
that eliminate background
noise. You also could have
benefited from an Auto coil,
which automatically
couples the hearing aids to a
telephone so no whistling
occurs. To learn more about
the latest features available
in digital hearing aids or to
get a second opinion before
making a hearing aid
purchase, call the
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing Center, Inc. at

SENIOR SCENE


Childhood memories of a 'poor


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
COLUMNIST


Do we all look back on our
childhood with nostalgia?
When I was young,, it always
seemed to me we were very
poor and had it so hard. But
do you know what? We were
really richer than Midas in so
many ways. At least that's how
it seems to me now.
As I think back to my days
on the farm, I picked pails and
pails of black raspberries in
our woods. (We looked on in
disdain on city folks who
stooped so low as to pick
blackberries on the fence
rows.) What I wouldn't give for
a dish of black raspberries
right now. And did you, as I
did, pick a bouquet of wild
flowers for your mom for the
dining room table? I can recall
sitting on a high load on a


wagon, loaded with fresh-
mowed hay on a beautiful
summer's day.
And in May, the peony
bushes were loaded with
blooms, right for the cutting.
What do you call those dou-
ble swings, facing each other?
Well, we had one, anyhow I
can recall sitting there, eating
concord grapes that hung
down in clusters from the
grape arbor over the double
swing.
Yes,'my mother and father
worked awfully hard. My
mother, in fact, quoted'a say-
ing: "Man works from sun to
sun, woman's work is, never
done" and would sometimes
add "And there is no rest for
the wicked." I remember run-
ning through our spacious
yard with our dog, Brownie,
and our photo album had a
picture of me at about the age
of 6, sitting cross-legged in
the yard with about six white
kittens crawling all over me. I
guess I was probably a poor
little rich girl and didn't know
it. I dunno!
About once a month, my
father would put a special
wagon bed on the wagon and,
pulled by two horses, we'd go
to a neighboring city for a
major supply of groceries: My


little rich girl'

much oldei sister often made
me pretty dresses and some-
times my father would put a
tub of water out to be warmed
by the summer sun, just for
my bath. I helped to clean the
globes and wicks of the kero-
sene lamps and sometimes
after all the chores were done,
my mother would have time.
to play touring, rbok or domi-'
noes with my brother and me.
I could add better than any
kid in school because of our
domino games.
Do you remember drying
dishes with tea towels made
from flour sacks? I suspect
they were 50-pound sacks
and made attractive just for
this purpose. And now that I
have mentioned flour, I re-
member coming home from
school one day to a glass of
milk and a warm, cinnamon
raisin sticky bun just waiting
for me.,
Was I rich or dirt poor? I
think I shall leave it up to my
readers to decide.

Putting older cars to work again


BY DALE MOORE
GUEST COLUMNIST
Have you noticed how
many new and nearly new
cars are sitting on lots all over
town? It seems as if almost
every comer that doesn't have
a CVS Drug Store or gas sta-
tion has a car lot.
There must be millions of
these cars sitting around. The
poor dealers holding these
large inventories are paying
thousands of dollars interest
on them. Car manufacturers
are laying people off and fac-
ing bankruptcy because they
cannot sell their cars. It seems
a matter of national security
that we find a way to help the
dealers, the automobile com-
panies and the laid-off work-
ers by getting rid of this glut of
cars.
It looks to me as though
there are enough cars sitting
on the lots I pass to GIVE
every licensed driver in the
United States a new (or newer


car) free. This would relieve
the dealer of the enormous
interest she or he is paying
every month; allow the man-
ufacturer to recall laid-off
workers and start up silenced
assembly lines; reduce our
dependence of imported oil
because we would get old,
inefficient cars off the road;
reduce road rage because'
folks would drive more cau-
tiously in their, new car;
reduce the amount of drugs
people use because dieir self-
image would be improved
driving a shiny new car;
strengthen family values
when mothers can stay home
and raise their children since
they no longer have to work
to pay for a car for their teen-
ager; and, most of all, it would
lower the highway death rate
because the new cars have so
many more safety features.
But how can we make this
happen?
It's simple. The govern-,
ment gives every licensed dri-

ver a voucher for one new car.
The driver uses it to pay the
dealer; the dealer uses it to
pay the manufacturer, who
uses it to pay the company
income tax. (That is more
taxes than some companies
pay now.) The government
now gives families vouchers
to send their children to pri-
vate schools. Why not give
them a car in which to trans-
port children to school? The
government pays farmers not
to grow crops. It even pays
farmers in other countries
not to grow opium. (Under
this plan we pay those farm-
ers in old cars rather than
cash.) And what a plan for
peace!
Instead of arms, we send
our old trade-ins to Israel,
Lebanon, Iran, Iraq and other
warring nations. I'll bet they
would think twice before
attacking their neighbor in a
1956 Nash Rambler.
And that's my two cents
worth ...

He failed to support housing that could have fixed the affordable housing mess.

He was the only commissioner to vote against the 2050 Plan to control growth.

Joe Barbetta has taken nearly 100 contributions worth tens of thousands of
dollars from builders and development interests.


On August 24th, 2006, The Sarasota Herald-Tribune wrote:
"But there are lingering questions, from his first decade on the Planning Commission, |
about his demeanor in public office...would he be the irascible Barbetta, who, according to ,
credible participants in the Planning Commision's deliberations, was combative at times U
towards fellow-commissioners and bullied staff members and petitioners?"




With other qualified candidates, why would anyone vote for Barbetta?

Cambodia, Siem Reap/Angkor Wat and rural area


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

BY GERALD STRAND
GUEST WRITER

Few places. conjure up
more mystery, allure, and
images of exotic beauty than
the Kingdom of Cambodia.
Throw in a measure of fear
due to the country's violent
history,. concern about its
primitive living conditions,
and apprehension about it
being rated a very high risk
destination for major infec-
tious diseases, and you have a
perfect adventure destination
... just the place for Elaine
and I to end our journey to
Asia (South Korea, Thailand,
and Vietnam).
Cambodia lies between
Thailand, Vietnam and Laos.
It's slightly larger than Okla-
homa, with a population of
nearly 14 million. According
to a CIA brief, "Most Cam-
bodians trace their routes
back to the Khmer, descen-
dants of the Angkor Empire."
Cambodia is a country
plagued by a lack of public
health infrastructure, unsafe
drinking water, AIDS, sexual
exploitation of children (hu-
man trafficking), poor envi-
ronmental practices and
inadequate education.
However, since the nation-
al elections of 1998 and 2003,
improvements in almost
every., facet of Cambpdian life
have occurred. But, it's impor-
tant to realize it was only eight
years ago (1998) that the last
members of the Khmer Rouge
regime which executed 1.5
million Cambodians were,
brought to justice. As a result
of these murders, more than
50 percent of Cambodia's
population is .under 20 years
old.
So what is it about Siem
Reap, Cambodia, that attracts
hundreds-of-thousands of
tourists each year? Simply,
put, some of the most magnif-
icent human-made structures
ever built by primitive people:
the Temples of Angkor..Ang-
kor Archaeological Park, a
World Heritage Site, encom-
passes temple ruins that sur-
pass dozens in number. Some
are in complete ruin and oth-
ers in outstanding condition'
(more than 100 temple ruins
are in the area surrounding
Siem Reap). These temples
have been compared to the
pyramids in terms of their
- value as ancient relics. Take
an e-tour of the famous tem-
ples at cambodian.com/
angkor/.
Don't miss these temples:
Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom,
Bakong and Preah Ko, and the
captivating Ta Prohm (over-
grown by gigantic tree roots).
Hire a knowledgeable guide,
one who knows Cambodian
history and is a student of the
temples (contact Tot Pag-
narith [Rit] at tot@yahoo
.com). Rit survived the Khmer
Rouge; he grew up an orphan
after his parents were mur-
dered and became a profes-
sional guide, husband, and
father of two children. He can
also get you safely into the
back country, as I'll discuss
later.
My wife, Elaine, and I land-
ed in Siem Reap from Ho Chi
Minh City, Vietnam. Our
moderate-cost lodging at
Angkor Village Resort was
superb: delicious food in
open-air dining, clean rooms
overlooking a serpentine
pool, and free massages and
Internet access (angkorvil-
lage.com ). We hired an air-
conditioned car and driver
rather than use a motorized
"tuk tuk". (a two-person
motorcycle trailer). The heat

in central Cambodia can be
suffocating, especially dur-
ing/after climbing steep tem-
ple stairways in the blazing
sun. (Hints: Visit in the off sea-
son to avoid crowds that slow
your ascent/descent, use an
umbrella, keep hydrated,
wear light cotton clothing,
apply sunscreen and bug
spray, visit the temples in the
morning and early evening,
and hit the pool in the after-
noon.)
There is always something
to do in Siem Riep, a modem
city with fine restaurants, four
and five-star hotels, a tradi-
tional central market packed
with vendors, and massage
parlors everywhere. You can
spend your evenings relaxing,
or attending an enjoyable cul-
tural performance at the
Apsara Theatre, or shopping
in the marketplace or at the
Khmer Angkor Art Workshop.
Elaine and I always do a
night or two of "city stuff," but
our main interest is getting
beyond the tourist areas to
where native people live. Rit,
our guide, agreed to take us
into the very rural area where
his mother-in-law lives, about
50 kilometers (31. miles) from
Siem Riep. The drive was on a
torturous dirt road, through
areas of endless rice patties,
past small herds of water buf-
falo and crude huts con-
structed of bamboo and
thatch. Now and then, we saw
a modern house sans elec-


tricity, running water and
indoor toilets. Rit pointed out
battery "terminals" along the
road where car batteries are
brought for charging. When
charged, the batteries power
a single light bulb or small fan
for several days. Also sold at
the terminal charging station
were soda bottles filled with
gasoline. The only motorized
vehicles were motorbikes and
ancient tractor-type machin-
es propelled by primitive
gasoline-engines.
The road meandered
through a world that time has
forgotten. Elaine and I were in
a state of enchantment when
suddenly we saw two men
standing in the center of the
road, clearly intent on block-
ing our vehicle's passage. A
dozen other men stood on
either side of the road, form-
ing a human blockade. No
one was smiling. This was no


welcoming committee. I slip-
ped our camera behind me. I
told Elaine to remain calm
and to avoid looking at the
faces in the crowd.
"Let Rit handle this," I said.
It's common when travel-
ing ,in developing nations
(formerly called the "Third
World") to carry most of your
money and valuables (cam-
era, watch, etc.) with you.
Since the average annual in-
come in Cambodia is equiva-
lent to $320 U.S., a Westerner
who is traveling outside the
tourist areas risks being
robbed by someone who pos-
sesses nothing.
When our car came to a
halt, Rit stepped assertively
from the vehicle.
Elaine and I tensed a bit
when we noticed that our dri-
ver was also sitting stiffly,
looking straight ahead. Rit
walked directly up to the two

men and seemed to engage'in
a polite, yet firm dialogue. He
never looked-back at us. After
several anxious minutes, he
returned to the car, got in and
told the driver to proceed.
"I told them that my moth-
er-in-law lives nearby, and
that I am a personal friend
with the local police chief," Rit
said to us. "They just wanted
to know who was on their
road."
More likely, something
quite different happened ...
yet another mystery in South-
east Asia.
Our journey to the back'
country ended late in the day.
We saw homes from which
Cambodians leave when they
make their long daily trek to
work in Siem Riep, fields
where crops' have been
farmed in' the same fashion
for- a thousand years, cloth
traps configured to catch a
favorite treat (swarms of
crickets that fly at night), a
lake which provides a week-
end retreat for locals who
can't swim in serpentine
pools outside a hotel room,
modest community temples
and monasteries where Bud-
dhist worship occurs, and a
traditional marketplace that
no foreigner will ever visit.
While the great Temples of
Angkor are truly amazing to
see and enough reason to
visit Siem Riep our time in
Cambodia's backcountry
helped connect us to the
nation's history, its present
and its future.
We will return.

tiny airport in Siem Riep

One if by airline, two if by


baggage handlers, three if


by in-flight experience


COURTNEY LINN'
TAWF WRITER


I love to travel. I love the
feeling of going somewhere
new for the first time, to smell
the air, to taste the food and
meet new people. I love the
feeling of going into a new
hotel for the first time. XWVith
all this in mind, I despise the
act of traveling itself. It is
often fraught with embarrass-
ment, discomfort and illogi-
cal behavior.
Turbulence has to be the
worst thing about the in-flight
experience, despite the seats
being sized for anorexic
supermodels. Once, while on
a flight, my plane, which I
think had only one engine, hit
a bump in the sky \Ve were
going down, down, down. It
didn't seem to want to stop. I
was screaming at such a high
pitch. I thought I would com-
promise the integrity of the
hull. But, what was worse, I
was the only one screaming.
But, before I get to the sin-
gle-most worst experience I
have ever had on a plane. I
would like to interject a word
about carry-ons, simply b-
ecause 'they are such a pain.
Nly earry-on is always a disas-
ter because it is filled with
every possible thing to keep
me from boredom, even on a
45-minute flight. However, I
can't really remember using
more than a walkman and a
book or magazine during a
whole flight. Mostly, I just'


clench my knuckles into the
armrest that I am unsure
belongs to me or the guy sit-
ting next to me with bad
sinuses.
But, I digress. On a flight
from Tampa to Albuquerque,
I had the worst traveling
experience that I have ever
had to date.
I had to visit Albuquerque
for a family event, and I was
going to be there only a cou-
ple of days. I packed a small
bag and put a lock on it. The
lock was grossly dispropor-
tionate to the size of the bag,
meaning the bag should have
supported a lock three times
smaller, not one that could
have locked a treasure chest.
Not thinking ti lock could
affect my travel plans pro-
fusely. I ventured forth, un-
daunted. Besides, it was the
only lock I had. (This was, of
course, when you could lock
your bag.)
The flight itself was a
smooth one. Aside from hav-
ing to sprint my way down
the main isle of the Houston
airport due to a flight delay in
Tampa, with the carry-on
from Rell in tow, there were
no problems. I spent my in-
flight time anxiously antici-
pating turbulence and light-
ning strikes. And, I even took
regular glances outside to-
ward the wings of the air-
plane, looking for horrible
gremlins with bad hair sys-
tematically and maliciously
damaging the plane. By thp
time I redahed Albuquerque.
no gremlins had appeared -
must have been their day off.
After landing, I breezed
past the slow people in first
class, and I fled the terminal
and kissed the dirty, smelly
tile of Albuquerque Interna-
tional Airport, happy to have
returned to land once again
in a safe manner. My best
friend greeted me at the bag-


gage claim, and once our.
hour-long catchup conclud-.
ed, the bags finally descended
from the top of the carousel.
Bags tumbled on bags, and
there is always that anticipa-
tion of when will yours come
out. Tumbling around like
clothes in a dryer, the bags
came and went around me.
Finally, some poor unfor-
tunate soul's bag came tum-
bling out of the hole with all
of the contents falling outs
along side of it. I heard muf-
fles from the crowd. "Poor
guy," one person said. "That
sucks," another uttered. I
remember saying to my
friend, "I'd hate to be the
owner of that bag."
As the bag neared me, the
contents became clearer.
"Hmmn," I thought. "I use that
shampoo." "Those look like
my shoes." "Oh my God!
That's my underwear!"
I quickly scrambled
around other passengers try-
ing to gather some of my dig-
nity, which was now spread
out on a baggage carousel like
food at a buffet. My friend
and'her kids joined in my
mania. But, my humiliation
reached its apex when nearby
children I didn't know joined
in what they considered fun.
"Here's your shoe. ma'am."
"Here are your shirts." It was
worse than the time I drop-
ped a pair of underwear in the
laundromat and an old man
returned it to me.
' \What'seemed like hours-of
'plM g'up'f~i- clothe Te'ally
lasted only 30 seconds. Once I
was sure I had all my posses-
sions my dignity being left
on the baggage carousel -
my friend instructed me to
stay and get my money back
for my rapidly dissolving bag.
My head darted in her direc-

STAFF REPORT

Bottled water, cosmetics,
hair gel, perfume, baby for-
mula; the list goes on and on,
and the most-asked-question
today by air travelers is "Can I
carry it on or not?"
That is not an easy ques-
tion to answer because it
seems to change by the day -
dependinggupon who is being
asked and where the individ-
ual is traveling.
As a result of the recent
event in the United Kingdom,
the TSA (Transportation Se-
curity Administration) has
released more stringent carry-
on restrictions for all com-
mercial flights domestic
and international. These lat-
est security measures are nec-
essary and for the safety of
everyone in the air and on the
ground, but today's air travel-
er is caught in the confusion
aboutjust exactly what they
can and cannot carry on their
flights.

In an effort to comply with
the latest rules and avoid any
possible issues at the airport,
many air travelers are now
shipping their luggage and
uncertain carry-on items to
their destination in advance
of their trip. Shipping luggage
ahead not only guarantees
that passengers will not be in
violation of the new restric-
tions, but it is convenient, safe
and secure.
Niche companies such as
The Luggage Club, the pre-
mier door-to-door luggage,
sports equipment and goods
delivery service have emerged
to help remove the guess
work for travelers. The Lug-
gage Club is positioned to
meet the needs of this grow-
ing trend of travelers who
have decided to play it safe by
shipping their luggage in
advance of their trip. Trav-
elers' luggage can be picked

"Are you crazy! Let's get the
heck out of here."
As we put my bag in the
trunk of her car, I noticed that
my lock was still intact on the
zipper, yet the zipper had
been broken in half, opening
the bag entirely. When the
FAA said we couldn'tdock our
bags anymore, I secretly let
out a sigh of relief. Most peo-
ple don't know how lucky we
are. But I do.

SNAKES from page 4B


Education
Learning about snakes
may be fundamental in pro-
viding for your safety
The Penn State Extension
service Web site, solutions.
psu.edu, points this out.
"Many people fear snakes,
probably because they know
some are venomous. Some
people go out of their way to
kill snakes, even when there is
no threat to safety or property.
As a result, many harmless
and beneficial snakes are
indiscriminately killed," says
the site.
It adds, "If people knew
more about snakes, they
would not misunderstand
and fear them so much. Fear
of snakes is often acquired
from early experience or from
friends or relatives who fear
snakes. This fear can be over-
come."
For more information on
snakes, visit the Web sites list-
ed in this story or visit your
local library.

Speaking up for animals: Report abuse


STAFF REPORT


Cruelty to animals is
something most people sim-
ply cannot tolerate. Whether
it's an animal you know or
just one you see often and
feel might be the victim, wit-
nessing animal abuse puts a
person in a precarious posi-
tion, as many might feel
there's little, if anything, they
can do.
Fortunately, that's not the
case. Since a lot of folks feel as
though cruelty to animals is
on a par with cruelty to chil-
dren, there are laws that pro-
hibit abusing animals. For
those who think they might
have been witness to animal
abuse, the following steps
should be taken when having
thoughts of turning someone
in to the authorities.
* Know the laws. What you
might define as abuse might
not necessarily coincide with
what legislators defined as
abuse when they wrote ani-
mal cruelty laws. Reporting
someone for something that's
not against the law could only
make things worse for the
animal, as a potentially abu-
sive owner could grow even
more so if he feels someone is
intruding on his privacy.
Besides speaking up, the
most important thing to do is
know the law. The Humane


Society of the United States
(HSUS) Web site (hsus.org)
provides information on each
state's animal cruelty laws as
well as any pending legisla-
tion. In addition to that,
HSUS provides information
as to whom you can contact
should your research confirm
that what you saw can be
legally defined as animal cru-
elty.
* Document incidents.
Providing proof of child
abuse can often be difficult,
and doing the same for ani-
mal abuse is often more so.
Since animals can't speak for
themselves, they need some-
one to speak for them. If
you're considering reporting
animal abuse, then that
spokesperson .is now you.
Whenever you witness ani-
mal cruelty, be sure to write
down what exactly hap-
pened and when. If possi-
ble, photograph anything
you see. Do so carefully,
however, as you never know
how volatile someone who
abuses 'animals can be if
they see you snapping pho-
tos of them. I
Something that could
help substantially is to
involve others who might be
witnesses as well. A "he said,
she said" situation in which
it's you against the animal
owner might not hold up, so


PHOTO COURTESY OF METROGRAPHICS
Whether they're feathered or furry, animal care should be
taken seriously, so report any abuse you may discover.


the more witnesses you can
get, the more likely you'll be
to save the animal from an
abusive situation.


* Understand what reporting
means for you. If you're about
to report a possible case of
animal cruelty, realize this isia


commitment. Such an accu-
sation is not to be taken light-
ly, as even abusers won't want
to give up their animal with-
out a fight. Court dates might
be set, and you'll more than
likely need to attend any pro-
ceedings as a witness. For
genuine animal lovers, how-
ever, such a sacrifice is worth
the price if it leads to saving
an animal from an abusive
situation.
* Be careful. Studies have
shown that children who are
abusive to animals often grow
up to be abusive to people. In
addition, adults who abuse
animals may have little prob-
lem getting violent with other
adults. This makes the pro-
cess of reporting animal cru-
elty a bit more delicate; as
you'll want to ensure your
own safety as well as the ani-
mal's. Don't take matters into
your own hands and confront
an individual; leave this up to
an animal care officer or the
police.
As far as personal protec-
tion, once you file a report,
your name is now attached to
the case, so beware of any
possible retribution. Don't
take any threats an animal
abuser might make lightly.
Report them to the police
immediately. Also, be careful
walking around day or night,
and keep a strict eye on any of


your own pets. An unstable
animal abuser might seek to
get retribution on you by
harming your animals, so
keep a close eye on them and
bring them in at night if you
don't already.
* Don't give up. Sadly, many
a yarn has been spun about
bureaucratic neglect when
it comes to abuse, be it child
or animal abuse. While the
majority of officials take
their jobs seriously, not all of
them do. If local officials
appear to be dragging their
feet or taking a case you feel
strongly about lightly, don't
hesitate to go above them.
Write a congressman, or
perhaps even contact local
media officials, such as your
local newspaper or local
television station.
In addition to mbdia out-
lets, organizations such as
HSUS and People for the
Ethical Treatment of
Animals (PETA) exist for the
express reason of protecting
animals from harm or
abuse. Should any of your
efforts with local officials
fall short, attempt to contact
either of those organiza-
tions, which can be found
on the Internet at hsus.org
or peta-online.org.

Protect your dog from heartworm disease


STAFF REPORT

Heartworm disease is a common con-
dition that can strike a wide variety ani-
mals, including the family dog.
Mosquitoes transmit heartworm
from animal to animal. When an infect-
ed mosquito bites an animal, the heart-
worm microfilaria develop into larvae.
As larvae mature, they moves through
the dog's body and eventually into the
heart and blood vessels. Over time, the
worms injure pulmonary vessels and
heart, and can lead to lung disease, heart
disease or damage to other organs.
Heartworms may survive for 5 to 7 years
in dogs.


A dog recently infected with heart-
worms may initially show no signs of
disease. As the disease progresses
though, the dog may cough, become
lethargic, lose its appetite or have diffi-
culty breathing. If not treated, the condi-
tion can become fatal.
A veterinarian can test a dog's blood
for heartworms. Additional tests, such as
chest X-rays and an echocardiogram,
can help confirm the diagnosis and
determine the severity of the infection.
Heartworm treatment designed to kill
adult worms present in a dog's body may
.require hospitalization and other med-
ications to help limit inflammatory reac-
tion as the worms die.


Heartworm disease in dogs has a high
preventability rate. Several FDA-
approved heartworm preventive avail-
able in a variety of formulations can
reduce the risk of heartworm. A blood
test for existing heartworm infection
should be done before starting a preven-
tion regime. Serious complications are
rare among dogs in good health, and if
the disease is detected early.

BOONE from Page 11B


Following in their father's
footsteps are sons Jeff and
Steve, who attended the Uni-
. versity of Florida College of
Law, graduating in 1982 and
1983, respectively.
During the past 50 years,
the Boone law offices provid-
ed basic training for many of
today's successful attorneys
in this area.
Most were hired directly,
and at Boone's insistence, al-
most all came from the Uni-
.versity of Florida law school
including his late partner
Brad Smith. Colleagues in-
cluded Bob Moore and Mur-
"ray Kanetsky, Charlie Wheel-
er, Roger Isphording, Greg
Roberts, Bob Klingbeil, Charl-
: es Hines and Gondolier Sun
Editor Bob Mudge.

da & Frook, PA. now has five
lawyers, his two sons, John
Koda and Peggy Frook.
Extracunicular activities
Rotary International has
been an important part of
Boone's life. The Venice Noko-
mis Rotary Club was founded
in 1947 prior to his arrival. In
1975-76, as its president,
Boone witnessed the forma-
tion of the South Venice Sun-
rise Club, following the earlier
formation of the Englewood
Rotary Club. Later he served
six years as the district repre-
sentative of Rotary. Locally, he
has been involved in many
Rotary projects and serves as
program chair.
As practicing Methodists,
the Boones attended church
in Nokomis, the only Meth-


bdist church in the area when
they arrived. As Venice grew,
plans were made to establish
a new Methodist church in
the city and parishioners vol-
unteered to participate in the
formation of the new church.
The Boones offered to trans-
fer and Dan helped acquire
the land for what is today the
Grace United Methodist
Church, 400 Field Ave. Today
the "new" church has 1,200
members.
In Venice, he and the fami-
ly handle the stadium reserv-
ed ticketing for Venice High
School games.
' In 2004, for their work with
youth sporting activities, Fre-
da and Dan Boone became
recipients of the Sports Hall of
Fame Award, presented by
city business people, profes-


Life History Writing Contest
and was, subsequently, pub-
lished in the May 2006 issue
of the Pepper Tree Literary
Magazine. He can be reached


sionals and parents in the,
Venice area.
Looking back and forward
Breaking the hold on the
city council allowing Venice
to move forward into the
modern age and acquiring
the gulf beach front for the
city, Boone considers to be his
finest endeavors.
Boone is most proud of
what he did that helped move
the city forward.'
Looking to the future,
Boone knows that his sons
will carry on the law firm that
he and Freda founded 50
years ago. He would like to
travel more, returning to
Hawaii, but his wife has other
ideas about that as they have
been to those islands often.
He also will continue his

since graduation. He has
been a trustee for its law

50 years ago and most every
day since then, Dan Boone
will be in his office when the
doors open for business, ably
assisted by his most admired
associate, his wife Freda.
"My legacy for the future
will be for the Citizens for

succeeded the CAA to contin-
ue to locate good citizens,

serve Venice," he said. "I hope
it will continue long after I'm.

SBA's new leader faces critics


Small Business Administration's Steven Preston has a long road to hoe


By ROBERT MANOR
MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS
CHICAGO The new head of the
Small Business Administration, a former
Chicago-area executive at a decidedly big
business, says his agency must do a bet -
ter job of helping minority, rural and
inner-city small companies grow.
3. "That's a huge social opportunity for
us," said Steven Preston, a Hinsdale resi-
dent preparing to move to his new job in
Washington. He became the SBA's
administrator in June.
*: Preston is taking on a small agency
with vocal critics, who claim that too
many federal contracts are going to giant
businesses when they should be allocat-
ed to small companies. Meanwhile, some
minorities believe they are shortchanged
'when it comes to winning government
work.
The SBA, best known as the financier of
last resort, guarantees loans to small
businesses that could otherwise not
obtain credit. Last year, for example, the
SBA backed about 100,000 loans worth
$19 billion. The default rate on loans
ranges up to 7 percent in any given year.
Because of fees it charges, the agency
breaks even.
People familiar with the SBA say its
more important role is advocating the
interests of small businesses to other fed-
eral agencies in everything from regula-
tion to making contracts available.
Harry C. Alford, president of the
National Black Chamber of Commerce,
said the SBA needs to be more aggressive
in pushing other government agencies to
offer business to small companies, espe-
cially those that are minority-o\wned.
'"African-Americans account for 2 or 3
percent of SBA loans and we are 13 per-
cent of the population," Alford said.
"We are looking at his numbers now,"
Preston said. He said SBA data show that
blacks account for'about 7 percent of
loans, a figure still substantially lower
than their percentage of the population.
"They make up 13 percent of the popu-
lation," Preston said. "They do not make
up 13 percent of businesses.
Preston has been meeting with black
and other minority organizations to see
what the SBA can do to better serve small
businesses in depressed neighborhoods.
He said he is also working to ensure that
rural small businesses are served.
Preston said he plans to work on a
chronic SBA problem. A federally main-
tained database of contracts awarded to
small businesses, notorious for its inac-
curacy, keeps turning up the names of
transnational companies that are decid-
edly not small.
Lloyd Chapman, president of The
American Small Business League, said,
"Democrats and Republicans alike need
to realize that when the president allows
billions of dollars in small-business
awards to be diverted to large corpora-


tions, it hurts every
American no matter
what their political
affiliation." A Korean
War-era law says 23
percent of govern-
ment contract
expenditures should
go to small business-

tract expires. In other instances, he said,
a small company with a government con-
tract is acquired by a large one but the
acquiring company is listed as a small
business in federal records as long as the
contract runs.
Some people question whether the SBA
should even exist.
"The SBA is kind of a ridiculous
agency," said Chris Edwards, director of
tax policy for the libertarian Cato Insti-
tute. "Its basic mission is incoherent.
"If they make loans to healthy busi-
nesses that are prosperous, that makes
no sense because they could go to banks
to get money."
On the other hand, if the SBA funds


"I have never been a
small-business owner,
but I've been around
small-business owners
all my life."


Preston said the Steven
problem is more with SBA ad
the way contract data
are recorded than it
is big companies get-
ting work meant for small businesses.
He said that a small business that wins
a contract and then grows big remains
listed as a small business until the con-

lender would

said, it is apt to
misallocate money
that could be put
to better use else-
where.
Preston said
that argument is
weak. There are
some viable busi-
nesses that cannot

do need money to


expand.
Nor is the government wasting the
public's money, he said.


"The government does not lose money
on these loans," he said. "We break
ev-en.
Preston, 46, would appear to be in for
the long run. A triathlete, he spent time
last summer bicycling through the
French Pyrenees.
That endurance may serve him well,
because he cannot count on his own
experience as a small businessman. He,
doesn't have any.
He was formerly executive vice presi-
dent of ServiceMaster Co., which earned
$198.9 million on sales of $3.24 billion
last year. Before that, he was an invest-
ment banker with Lehman Brothers.
Preston said his personal lack of expe-
rience in small business is no barrier to
doing a good job.
"When I,was a banker I took a lot of
small businesses public," Preston said. "I
have never been a small-business owner.
but I've been around small-business
owners all my life."

Technology tools for a successful Internet marketing plan


- ALLBUSINESS.COM
:- What tools do I need before
putting together an Internet
marketing plan?
A: If you want to have an online
presence, you need several basic
technology tools at your disposal to
guarantee that you will be success-
: ful with your Internet marketing
plan. Without the following in place,
: it will be difficult to successfully
market your business oh. the Web:
Web site: You must have a Web
site to successfully market your
company on the Web. And you need
a domain name that reflects your
company's identity and brand.


w 1 '- "



This column draws advice from more
than 10 established experts providing -
advice to businesses in a Q&A format.
' << . __ .J I


Using your company name as a
domain name is a good place to
start.
Check out your competition. You
will find that Web sites have, varying
degrees_ of Iophistication. Make sure


that yours reflects your industry. If"
you are a designer, for ifistance, you
cannot get away with a low-tech
text-heavy Web site.
Reliable ISP or Web host: The
inadequacies of your service


provider will come across to cus-.
tomers as inadequacies of your
company. Make sure you do your
homework first and research
potential Web hosts. The key factors
in choosing a provider are connec-
tion speed, site uptime, spam.
policies and support. In addition,
watch for hidden costs.
Also, make sure that certain
technologies are available to you
should you need them. For example,
you may want to run server-side
scripts to extract information from
your database to, include on your
site. Many basic Web hosting
programs do not include such


functionality.
E-mail: Customers need to be able
to contact you by e-mail. All
employees should have an e-mail
address. Train your employees to
use e-mail for customer service. And
make sure your e-mail address is
easy to find on your Web site and
your marketing material.
E-mail newsletter: An e-mail
newsletter can be a key component
of successful online marketing. Its
success hinges on the number of
customer e-mail addresses you
successfully collect, so it is helpful-
to have a strategy and set up your
Web site with that in mind.

assume they are having an
affair, while others simply feel

inquired about their personal
relationship, I did advise these
two of the staff's comments

became quite defensive.
Now I'm not sure what to do.

the fact that you are pregnant

Although you have no legal

that you are expecting, your

Once it is, potential employers
may fear that you will be gone

The circumstances of your

For some interviewers, this
may fall into the category of
"too much information," but I

Hardware helps in


By SUSAN KREIMER
MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS
DALLAS When a hard-
ware store fires on all cylin-
ders, it means solid customer
relationships are in place.
That's Bill Jablonowski's for-
mula for success. Help people
with eveiyday household
issues, and count on them to
come back.
Jablonowski, who runs Cop-
pell Ace Hardware, plans to
open a sister store in Keller,
Texas, early next year.
Owning a home improve-
ment store can transform an
entrepreneurial dream into
reality. It's a way to combine
business acumen with trades
know-how.
Retailers can start a store
from scratch, take over an
existing location or invest in a
cooperative such as Ace Hard-
ware Corp.
The company's growth strat-


egy calls for 1,000 new Ace
stores across the United States
in the next six to seven years,
with a major emphasis on 16
markets.
"The recession resistance of
our industry is a huge plus,"
said John Venhuizen, director
of business development .at
Ace's headquarters in Oak
Brook, Ill.
Ace gives incentives, to qual-
ified individuals who open
stores. New investors receive
$195,000, and existing Ace
retailers get $215,000. Unlike a
franchise, .this cooperative
business model directs profits -
back to store owners in
patronage dividends at year-
end.
But aspiring entrepreneurs
should be shrewd. Start-up
costs, including inventory and
fixtures, total $1 million, Ven-
huizen said. Of that, a mini-
mum net worth of $300,000 is

came for," Bond explained.
Staying ahead of big-name
competitors starts with supe-
rior service and a wide range
of hard-to-find items, he said.
The stores even stock hard-
ware for restoring antiques.
Jablonowski, 40, of Cdppell
Ace Hardware, also strives to
carry brands or product cate-
gories that competitors may
not. Examples include a pre-
mium paint line and power
equipment.
The store sells and installs
gas logs (there are two func-
tional fireplaces on the
premises), and it replaces
screens and builds new ones,
he said.
His wife, Renae, has added a
blend of accents for outdoor
garden and living areas. She
makes frequent visits to Dal-
las Market Center and looks
for innovative products. Two
of their three children also


contribute to the store's suc-
cess.
"We have another business
called Rent-A-Husband that
we house out of our store. It's
a handyman service, and it
allows us to extend help into
people's homes," explained
Jablonowski, who climbed the
ladder in Ace's corporate
operations before taking own-
ership of the Coppell store in
2005. "The business focuses
on the small jobs around the
. house that never get done.
We're kind of a 'honey-do list'
specialist."
The list is long: Install ceil-
ing fans, fix fences, replace
faucets, assemble furniture
and tackle other small tasks.
"Yesteryear's hardware store
isn't the store of today, and
tomorrow's store will be
something different,"
Jablonowski said. "Those who
keep up will succeed."

Dixon-Lee, the Chicago-based

The new technology has
expanded opportunities for
telecommuting and working
from home. Meanwhile,
coders',image has undergone
a. transformation. Once
viewed as librarians of data,
today's professionals are per-
ceived as valuable players in
maintaining profitability,
according to Kforce.
"Coders need to be highly
trained in reimbursement
requirements, biomedical sci-
ences, pathophysiology and
privacy practices to maintain
compliance with government
and insurance regulations -
ever-vigilant to guard against.


fraudulent billing practices,"
Dixon-Lee said.
An upcoming overhaul of
the International Classifica-
tion of Diseases directory will
require professionals to assim-
iiate. new. technology and
many more codes.
The updated diagnostic
classification set includes
about 120,000 codes nearly
10 times the current number.
Coders also will need to learn
the procedure usage set,
which has more than 200,000
codes about 50 times as
many as it has now.
The best opportunities go to
coders with an associate
degree in health information
management and the creden-
tial of Registered Health Infor-
mation Technician, which is


obtained through the associa-
tion.
Additional credentials, such
as Certified Coding Associate
and Certified Coding Special-
ist, boost the chances for
employment.
Staffing agencies play a role
in placing coders and tend to
pay more than hospitals,
experts say, but applicants
also work directly for employ-
ers.
Kforce reports that 62 per-
cent of coding professionals
earn $30,000 to $50,000 per
year. Nearly half of managers
- 49 percent bring in
$40,000 to $60,000. For consul-
tants contracted by staffing
firms, salaries can be even
higher.
"The trend is to hire creden-


oding

tialed or degree coders," said
Sally Nelson, co-owner of
Impact Associates, a Dallas-
based health care consulting
firm that provides coding ser-
vices.
"The most challenging
problem for newly creden-
tialed or degree coders is
finding employment without
experience."
In major cities, she added,
the shortage of coders is no
longer as critical as in rural
areas.
Prospects appear rosy for
seasoned coders. "There is a
huge job market if you're expe-
rienced in this area. You can
pick and choose your job,"
said Sam Farrell, group presi-
dent of Kforce's health infor-
mation management division.


Why plants at work are good for business

S But companies need to
. know'( what they're getting'
into because maintenance is
a must. Plants that aren't
cared for can easily wither or
quickly give harbor to insects.
The business owner who
picks up a few plants at the
local nursery should be pre-
pared to make rounds with
the watering can or find a
subordinate who will.
Bigger -businesses often
outsource their plant mainte-
nance.

"It says. something about
the professionalism and the
management of the compa-
ny," says Hersh, CEO of Mack-
Cali Realty Corp., which is
known, in part, for its pic-
turesque atriums. "It creates
not only a manicured feel, but
it helps stimulate connectiMi-
ty and productivity in the
work force when there's some
green around and oxygen
flowing."
Indeed, studies on plahts at
work point to such health
benefits as stress reduction
and cleaner air, especially in
offices with closed windows.
One study from Washington
State.University found that

stressed, than those without
greenery at the office,
"They've been shown to
reduce absenteeism," says
.Peterson, who manages 55
Initial Tropical Plants
employees out of 1,200
nationwide.
ITP workers regularly visit
customers to care for plant
displays. Insects are promptly
removed, either with alcohol-
based sprays, through regular
dusting or, in more chronic'
cases, with the help of a pest-
control subcontractor.
S"It's a live plant, so insects
will attack it." says Peterson.
!"But usually it's not a prob-


lem because maintaining the
plants regularly is a preventa-
tive thing."
The company is a sub-
sidiary of Rentokil Initial PLC,'
a publicly traded internation-
al business-to-business firm
in the United Kingdom. Initial
Tropical Plants provides inte-
rior landscaping, design
installation and maintenance
services to businesses
throughout the country. The
company provides everything
from holiday season rentals
for small offices to major
makeovers for retailers.
ITP's operations in the
United States and Canada,


logged more than $100 mil-
lion in revenue last year
despite some product short-
ages related to a tough hurri-
cane season in Florida, where
the company buys most of its
plants, according to Peterson.
Last summer, ITP created a
Zenr garden at The Mall at
Short Hills, using bamboo,
grass, black river rock and a
mix of live plants like Ming
Aralias and some faux, or
replica, plants. An- ITP
employee comes at least once
a week to water, prune or, if
necessary, replace anything
that's not flourishing.
"We get lots of compli-


ments on it," says Mike McAv-
inuIe, general manager of the
niall, owned by Taubman
Centers, Inc. "Our stores are
our jewels, but we wanted
something visually stunning
and welcoming to be part of
our shoppers' experience."
McAvinue says he knew ITP
would prove right for Short
Hills after mall officials cast
eyes on the company's elabo-
rate indoor display at the
Westin Hotel in Detroit.
"It's just spectacular,"
McAvinue says. "I knew we
wanted that calming, sooth-
ing effect at. the shopping
center, and Initial delivered."


Financial analysts are now in higher demand


By ANDREW D. SMITH
MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS: ,.'
DALLAS Financial ana-
lysts were under siege a cou-
ple years back. Regulators
were prosecuting some ana-
lysts. Investors were suing
o: hers. Pundits were predict-
ing the profession's decline.
After all, the reasoning
went, if banks and broker-
ages were to be held liable
for analysts' errors, it
S seemed logical that they'd
hire fewer analysts. But this
. observation, like others that
arose after the recent corpo-
rate scandals, has proved
incorrect. Demand for finan-
cial analysts is booming.
Rather than cutting
research departments, many
banks and brokerages have
expanded them. Companies
in other sectors are also
snapping up financial ana-
lysts; they need corporate
* seers to evaluate the uncer-
tain economy.
Will the trend continue?
Forecasters at the U.S.
Bureau of Labor Statistics


think so.
The agency -- which
reports there are about 8,900
financial analysts in Dallas-
Fort Worth and 302,000
nationwide expects
demand for financial ana-
lysts to grow about 25 per-
cent between 2004 and 2014,
considerably faster than the
overall labor market.
The bureau also expects
analyst income now aver-
aging $76,000 a year around
Dallas to grow faster than
overall income.
A major reason, according
to published bureau reports,
is financial deregulation:
"In recent years, banks,
insurance companies and
brokerage firms have been
allowed to broaden their
financial services. ... Many
banks are entering the secu-
rities brokerage and invest-
ment banking fields and will
increasingly need the skills
of financial analysts."
Although financial service
companies employ the sin-
gle largest chunk of financial
analysts, other industries


employ them as well.
Indeed, nearly all companies
need financial analysts.
"Financial analysts work
as a team with auditors and
accountants," said Andrea
Jennings, vice president and
general manager of the
Accounting and Finance
Division of Lucas Group, an
executive recruitment firm
based in Atlanta. ,
"Auditors look at the past.
Accountants look at what's
going on now. Analysts pre-
dict the future. All compa-
nies must do all three things,
particularly with growing
activity in mergers and
acquisitions. It really
requires a lot of projections
to see which mergers make
sense."
Jennings, who works in
Dallas, estimates that her
company now fields about
four times as many requests
for financial analysts as it
did a couple years back. And
that demand is coming from
every sort of company.
"Among Dallas-area com-
panies that we work with,


we've seen the strongest
demand in technology and
manufacturing," said
Heather Ainsworth, branch
manager and director of
financial services at the Dal-
las. office- of Robert Half
Finance & Accounting.
"The strong economy has
a lot of companies looking to
expand. Those companies
need analysts to study inter-
nal operations and industry
trends and to make intelli-,
gent recommendations
about where they should
invest their expansion dol-
lars."
All this demand has out-
stripped the supply of quali-
fied job candidates, and that
has created fierce competi-
tion for the best talent.
Wages have shot up. Jen-
nings estimates they have
risen as much as 18 percent
in just the past year.
Companies that won't pay
premiums are settling for
green candidates, according
to Jennings, who has seen
companies hire new college
graduates for jobs that once


required several years of
experience.
Strong job growth
throughout accounting and
finance has attracted more
undergraduates.
For students looking to
become financial analysts,
Ainsworth recommends
bachelor's degrees in
accounting or finance. An
economics degree would
also work, she said, if paired
with relevant work during
early internships.
As for supplemental cre-
dentials, Jennings said, a
CPA can improve a candi-
date's job prospects. She said
she has not seen much
demand for other certifica-
tions, such as any of the
three. CFA designations.
Though more young peo-
ple are in the pipeline, they
can't step directly into the
midlevel positions where job
growth is highest.
In other words, current
finance professionals are'in a
very strong position, and
that position can be further
strengthened by strategic


action.
Ainsworth advises job can-
didates to. develop strong
technical skills.
"Employers want people
who are very strong in Excel
and probably Access," she
said. "They also like experi-
ence with accounting pro-
grams and some of the more
popular data analysis tools."
Jennings offered two other .
pieces of advice.
"First, do not switch jobs
too frequently. It can be very
tempting with all the jobs
out there to jump around for
smallish raises, but that's
self-defeating in the long run
because it eventually scares
off employers.
"Second, keep track of
your specific accomplish-
ments, so that when it comes
time to apply for a'new job
you can say, 'I saved my
company this much in this
specific instance and I made
it this much in another.' That
impresses people far more
than simply noting length of
employment and perfor--
mance reviews."
