Barbetta: not anti growth


- anti dumb growth


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Developers may face a
tougher road to backhoe in
the future when they come
before the Sarasota County
Commission.
County Commissioner-
Elect Joseph Barbetta said
Thursday he is looking for-
ward to assuming outgoing
Commissioner David Mills'
District 2 seat shortly after the
November elections.
And he plans to approach
the job a lot differently than
Mills did.

BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Revitalization of the Albee
Road gateway to Nokomis'
beaches takes another step
forward within the next sever-
al days with submission of
petitions to rezone the north-
west and southwest corners
of the road at U.S. 41.
Finergy Development,
LLC, which plans to develop
the 4.2-acre southwest corner,
and Henry Rodriguez, the
developer of the 4.9 acres
across Albee Road, have been
discussing their separate and
possibly joint plans for the
comer.
The properties have been
occupied by two closed and
dilapidated gasoline stations.
Both groups have been work-
ing with the Nokomis Center
Revitalization Advisory Com-
mittee to meet the criteria the
latter has established.
The committee expressed
its wish for an architectural
theme for commercial devel-
opment along U.S. 41 in
Nokomis. Both Finergy and
Rodriguez plan to observe the
standard, the Key West style,
in the architecture of their
buildings.

Due to incorrect information

"I'm not anti-growth. I'm


anti-dumb growth," he said.
"And I think over that 16-year!
period (of Mills' tenure) some
projects probably could have
been done better. That's why
we have traffic and environ-
mental concerns today."
Barbetta said he believes a
more acceptable type of
development can take place
in the county, "that takes
advantage of our existing
urban services and infra-
structure rather than contin-
uing to sprawl."
Although his already-
developed District 2 is at little
risk of undergoing any real
sprawl, Barbetta sees a lot of


room for improvement.
"My district covers down-
town Sarasota down to the
Bee Ridge Road area, out to
the east toward Honore," he
said. "It also includes Lido
and Longboat Key. The issue
in this area is redevelopment
and infill. For example, taking
a one-story strip center or
warehouse and figuring out
ways to create mixed-use
projects in those areas."
Building over existing sin-
gle-story structures by several
floors is important, he said, in
order to achieve the addition-
al office and housing space
his district needs as long as


the construction doesn't in-

borhoods.

County shares environmental policies


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

More than 200 municipal
and county environmental
program coordinators from
around the state came to
Sarasota County recently to
learn how to protect land
from development with


public support.
Brooke Elias, a project
scientist with the county
who has coordinated the
Environmentally Sensitive
Lands Protection Program
since 2001, spoke on how
the county has won public
support in two referendums
since 1999. The votes were


to increase an ad valorem
tax, and approve bonding
authority, first for $53 mil-,
lion, then for $250 million.
Both votes were over-
whelming in .favor. The first
recorded 67 percent in favor.
The second earned 80 per-'
cent of the vote.
Despite a real estate boom


in which land prices often
doubled and tripled within a
12-month period, the county
and its acquisition agent,
The Nature Conservancy,
negotiated and closed on 45
properties in the program's
first six years. All were pur-
chased for less than ap-
praised market value.

OEVA applauds major redevelopment project


BY STEVENJ. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Although the proposed
$60-million community has
no name yet, its proponents
this week had plenty of ideas
about the positives it would
bring to nearby West Dear-
born Street.
And there would be plenty
,of them, they said.
"This center is actually
going to help the Dearborn
Street area," said Brian Licht-
erman, president of Vision
Planning & Design, about the
project known now only as
"the northern anchor site."
It is an approximately 40-
acre tract bordered by State
Road 776 on the east,. Elm
Street on the west, Artists
Avenue on the south and a
line extending along the same
latitude as Veridian Street on
the north.
Lichterman was joined by
developer Ron Johnson, real
estate attorney Stephen D.
Rees, appraiser Richard W.
Bass and Dana L. Gourley of
the American Institute of
Certified Planners in a pre-
sentation before the Olde
Englewood Village Associ-
ation Tuesday night.
Their apparent goal was to
assure OEVA that the new
retail-commercial-residential
development would foster
synergy rather than competi-
tion for the Dearborn mer-
chants whose businesses
would be about a mile south
of the project site.
They succeeded.
"It creates kind of an over-
all relationship," Lichterman
said. "It will bring people into
this area who otherwise
wouldn't come in the first

'Most studied'
Johnson, with Englewood
Investment Group, owns the
land, which he is seeking to
rezone from single-family
and open-use estate to
planned economic develop-
ment. The rezoning could
take a year, and if the project
gets approval from county
commissioners, it could
break ground in late 2008.
The proposed develop-
ment includes a medical/

st-


cial retail services" that he
believes would build further
synergy between the two
retail centers.
"This development will
help Dearborn in its revital-
ization efforts," he said,
launching into a proposed list
of mutually beneficial ideas
that would create a "symbiot-
ic relationship" between the
northern anchor site and the
Englewood town center. He
suggested:
Building an extension or
providing the additional con-
struction of sidewalks con-
necting Dearborn with Artists
Avenue;
Providing access from
Artists Avenue or Elm Street
to connect an internal pedes-
trian circulation system;
Designing and construct-
ing sidewalk and drainage:
improvements;
Attaining mutual support
for trolley/transit availability
on Artists Avenue;
Setting up a mass transit
stop at or near the entrance to
the northern anchor site at
S.R. 776;
Creating an information
kiosk at transit stops along
S.R. 776 advertising commer-
cial and retail outlets and
businesses along or near
Dearborn;
Building additional off-
street parking to be used for
special events;
Contracting with a con-


sultant to conduct an Engle-
wood Town Center Down-
town Economic Summit and
furnishing a post-summit
report to OEVA and the
Community Redevelopment
Area; and
Bringing the community
together to discuss what the
north anchor site will looklike
- design, materials, uses,
height, accesses, mass, colors
- and how it might best
coexist with the business revi-
talization on Dearborn.
Rees concluded his re-
marks by again assuring
OEVA members that there
would not be competition
between the two centers.
"In time, as you develop
the theme for your revitaliza-
tion and you :create your
niche, it's going to be even
easier for us to advertise to
people coming here about
you," Rees said. "Because you
will have defined and made
what you are."
If all goes well, by late 2008
or early 2009, portions of the
project could be completed
and available for occupancy,
he added.
OEVA members supported
the plan with applause at the
conclusion of the presenta-
tion.

County seeks continuing



jurisdiction over rural land


Good luck charm


BY RICK BARRY
PELICAN PRESS

The Sarasota County Com-
mission is rushing to public
hearing in Venice next Wed-
nesday so it can propose a
new law on the Nov. 7 ballot.
That law would preserve the
county's development restric-
tions on all of its rural land,
even after it has been annex-
ed into one of the county's
four municipalities.
Since development is the
goal of most city annexations
of rural land, by retaining its
right to control development,
the county would effectively
halt or slow down the geo-
graphic expansion of the
cities, especially growth-hun-

states and are destined to

problem if transients move
in before crews clear the way
for new offices, stores and
apartments.
Construction is on hold
because Sarasota County
hasn't adopted development
regulations for the "commer-
cial village centers" it decided
was a good way to provide
affordable housing. There is
little likelihood work will be-
gin before the year ends.
"We have been waiting for
the county to approve mixed-
use regulations for more
than a year," Benderson's
attorney, Bill Merrill, told the
county commission at an
Aug. 31 meeting. "They were
supposed to have been
adopted by last April 15."
The regulations will apply
to more than just the
Benderson project. Similar
high-density development
has been conceptually ap-
proved at locations around
the county, but nothing
can come out of the ground
until there are rules to base
construction plans on.
"We need to take a broad-
er look at this," County Plan-
ning Director Anne McClung
told the commission, "and

work with people who have
more experience than our
staff."
In other words, the county
will employ a consultant to
help devise regulations.
'All we've done is give per-
mission for additional densi-
ty," Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said. "The question
that remains is whether it will
be palatable. I can't tell what
it would look like based on
what's currently in front of
me. But it would be unfair to
drag this out for a year."
County Administrator Jim
Ley said there is enough dis-
cretionary money available
in his budget to hire outside
expertise with mixed-use
development experience
and provide the commission
with some guidance on how
density could be tastefully
massed.
"I support going back to
the planning commission
with this," said Commissioner
Shannon Staub. "What I don't
want to see is another urban
design that can just be plop-
ped down. I hope something
can be ready within the next
60 to 90 days."
On July 18, 2003, trailer
park residents saw the end of
an era coming when another
developer Christopher C.
Cogan signed a letter of
intent to pay $16.5 million
for the 25-acre property. Ben-
derson then came into the
deal and bought it for a
mixed-use project.
The park's previous own-
ers, Tollyn and Robina
Twitchell, never made a secret
of their plans to eventually
sell it off. In 1985, they advised
mobile home owners who
rented spaces that the parcel
would eventually be devel-
oped to its highest and best
use.
Tollyn Twitchell is the son
of Ralph Twitchell, a well-
known Sarasota architect
who partnered with Paul
Rudolph to launch what
came to be known as the
Sarasota School of Architect-
ure. He is also architect
and worked for the prestig-
ious local firm.

On tour with Tom Minnich: Preserving the watershed


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


A drive around the Lemon
Bay Watershed with Tom
Minnich is an eye-opening
experience, particularly in
view of the painstaking efforts
his group and groups like his
have made to promote con-
servation.
Just off Manasota Beach
Road, one immediately notices
the 300-acre
Manasota L"
Scrub Pre- -"
serve, formerly
owned by the ,
Markarian -
family.
"The Envi- i,
ronmentally
Sensitive Land
'Acquisition Minnich
Committee
was able to buy that for a very
reasonable price and preserve
it," he said. "It's really a mar-
velous acquisition, because
we're not going to see any
development in here.
"This belongs to the peo-
ple of Sarasota County."
He added that hiking trails
and guided tours are offered
there.
The Lemon Bay League
Watershed Partnership will
encompass all the projects he
showed under one program
that includes Charlotte Coun-
ty.
"We are not anti-develop-
ment," said Minnich. "We are
pro-good development. We
want things to be done in a
manner that will make this
area unique."

His dream
Speaking of unique, in a
quiet sector of Old Engle-


wood Road, one can see four
small, octagonal structures
settled in a small area of a 10-
acre tract next to Buchan Air
Field. Brought in from the
Hermitage on Manasota Key,
these will temporarily serve
as the chamber of com-
merce's welcome center.
Eventually, however, they'll
become the place where
Minnich's dream will crystal-
lize the Lemon Bay Learn-
ing Center.
"I see it (being developed
into) a library of the future -
not with books, but a place
where you can go to commu-
nicate with anybody, any-
where in the world. A state-
of-the-art communications
center where you can go to
find out anything you want."
The Lemon Bay League is
looking to link with area uni-
versities, Mote Marine and
other strategic partners to
import programs from Paris,
London anywhere. Min-
nich envisions a 125-seat,
multipurpose meeting/class
room along with extensive
research facilities where sci-
entists will focus on Lemon
Bay how to use the. latest
building materials, how to
construct a hurricane-proof
home, anything affecting the
Lemon Bay Watershed.
"If you live in this water-
shed, there's nothing that
happens in that watershed
that does not affect you per-
sonally," Minnich said. "This
is the area we are trying to
protect, trying to make a des-
tination place for tourists. I'd
love to see it happen in my
lifetime."
The land is adjacent to a
nature trail snaking into a
wooded area where Minnich


sees nature studies taking
place as part of the learning
center.

Bicounty cooperation
The watershed knows no
boundaries, and Minnich
believes Sarasota and Char-
lotte counties need to work
together to respect that.
"Regional planning for the
Cape Haze peninsula is what
the Lemon Bay League is
about," he said as he drove
over the county line to
Merchants Crossing. "It's part
of the plan of the Lemon Bay
League to try and develop a
local transportation system
that crosses the county line."
Minnich's group has had
numerous meetings with
Sarasota County Area Transit
and Dial-A-Ride in Charlotte
County. The goal has been to
encourage these groups to
provide better transportation
to Merchants Crossing and
Englewood Hospital for resi-
dents living around the bor-
der.
A quick right onto Placida
Road revealed the site of one
of Minnich's greatest con-
cerns: condominium devel-
opment.
It is Minnich's goal to do
something, perhaps in the
form of a watershed overlay,
to control the height of these
buildings and preserve the
landscape of this pristine
area.
"I hope someday we'l have
some control over what's
happening down here along
the waterfront," he said. "The
closer you get to Boca
Grande, the less it looks like
Englewood."
Stump Pass Marina, an-
other stop on Minnich's tour,



"I hope someday we'll

have some control

over what's happen-

ing down here along

the waterfront. The

closer you get to Boca

Grande, the less it

looks like Englewood."

Tom Minnich on

the development in

Grove City and Placida






provided several views. One
was of a collection of trailer
homes.
"One of my guys says,
Affordable housing comes
with wheels,' "said Minnich.
The other view, a spectacu-
lar one, was of the nearby
inland waterway, which Min-
nich called, "The best view of
Lemon Bay that I could possi-
bly show you in Charlotte
County. I would like to see
this remain just as you see it
-today."
His concern about unre-
stricted building, especially
on the barrier islands on the
waterway and the mobile
.home park at Stump Pass,
was evident.

Design or default
A final stop on the Lemon
D- I ^.AT+- I---! +--3 J- -_-- D.- -__


up the subject of water use,
water treatment and water
preservation.
"Buck Creek, down here in
the south, is one of the hot
spots for pollution, primarily
because of the number of
people living in Rotonda,"
said Minnich.
Spillage from Buck Creek
into the bay is causing pollu-
tion.
"The density of population
seems to have a direct effect
upon the pollution going into
the bay," he said. -"There are
ways to remedy that. We can
pretreat the water in the
creeks, draining from the
creek basins into the bay.
Pretreating that water before
we dump it into the bay can
be done inexpensively, with
sand filters. It's already being
done on parts of the old
Taylor Ranch."
Then there won't be a
worry about all the fertilizer
and pesticides. people are


throwing on their lawns.
These drain directly into the
creek basins, then into the
bay, he said.
"If we could just conserve
the water we're wasting now,
we'd have enough to last us
for a long, long time," said
Minnich.
The tour ended with a cau-
tionary word.
"You can have a future by
design or by default," said
Minnich.
That's the core purpose of
the Lemon Bay League, he
said, to have a well-designed
community that lives in har-
mony with its environment
and fosters responsible
growth in this incredibly
beautiful region of the coun-
try.
"We can make it happen,"
he said.

Other plans
Revitalization of Nokomis'
commercial corridor along
U.S. 41 has been sparked in
recent months by the an-
nouncement of several devel-
opments.
Matthews-Currie Ford re-
vealed plans to erect a new
showroom on the east side of

^JIni & Suiies, just about oppo-
site,' oh the west side, plans to
double its size and add com-
mercial space.
Widening of the highway
from the Venice bypass north
to Laurel Road, under way
since November, and con-
struction of water lines in two
neighborhoods have "given
the community a consider-
able lift," according to John
Ask, president of the Nokomis
Area Civic Association.
"These latest proposals are
leading the way to the revital-
ization of Nokomis," he said.
"I hope that the efforts and
leadership of Finergy and
Henry Rodriguez will provide
the synergy for additional
quality projects here."

OUShould doctors gVIEW




Should doctors get performance bonuses?


What a simple thing, prescribing an
aspirin for a heart attack patient. A
small thing like that can make the dif-
ference between life and death. But, unfortu-
nately, not all heart attack patients rushed to
an emergency room get that aspirin.
Doctors forget. Hospitals don't insist. No
one is watching to make sure.
What to do? One possibility: Use the same
tool that every other industry uses to improve
performance money. Give doctors .and
hospitals a bonus if they improve the quality
of care.
This idea, called "pay for performance," is
gaining momentum. The American Medical
Association is developing more than 100
standard measures of quality by which to
judge performance.
Some of those results eventually will be re-
ported to the federal government. Some large
insurance companies and private employers
are enthusiastically joining the push.
Medicare is experimenting with pilot pro-
grams as a way to improve care and tame
costs in a system now projected to be insol-
vent by 2018, a mere 12 years from now.,
President Bush recently signed an executive
order that, among other things, aims .to help
develop quality standards for medical care, a
vital step toward a pay-for-performance sys-


tem.
You may be asking now, don't doctors and
hospitals get paid enough already? Do they
really need bonuses? Isn't that part of the
problem, why health-care costs are garroting
the federal budget?
Er, well, yes. But the theory here is that the
system is backward. It often inadvertently
rewards poor performance. Doctors do more
- tests, operations, follow-up care they.
get paid more. There's little penalty for failing,
except when mistakes turn into malpractice
suits.
So why not figure out the essential things
that all physicians should, but don't always,
do to manage or treat illnesses such as dia-
betes, heart disease or asthma? Then pay
doctors and hospitals a bonus for meeting
those standards doing the right thing at
the right time in the right way.
Many doctors hate the idea. They consider
it an insulting and tiny bribe to treat
patients right. They argue they don't need
such incentives. Many don't.
And probably doctors are right to suspect
that these systems could one day be used to
cut some doctors' pay while increasing oth-
ers' who do what some bureaucrat or insur-
ance exec dictates, and nothing more.
But the problems with the American


health-care system are so huge, so pernicious
and so threatening to the nation's long-term
fiscal health that experimentation with pay
for performance and other novel ideas
deserves a try.
So despite some doctors' objections, it's
good that Medicare, and many others, are
experimenting now with pay for perfor-
mance.
Early results seem promising: Last year,
officials at Premier Inc., a nonprofit hospital
alliance, announced that a Medicare-spon-
sored pilot program to improve care had
saved the lives of about 235 heart attack
patients at some 260 hospitals across the
country in its first year. -
The hospitals took many steps to improve
care, some as simple as giving more heart-
attack patients aspirin when they were first
admitted.
Some hospitals, however, discovered a
drawback, at least to their bottom line: The
incentives worked too well.
Patients got better care and mistakes were
reduced. They didn't need as much follow-
up. Adverse drug reactions and other compli-
cations requiring extensive and expensive
stays in the hospital were reduced.
As a result, in some cases hospitals lost
revenue, prompting some executives to sug-


gest that the entire pay system needs to be
changed.
Such is the perverse paradox of health care
in America. Do well and get paid less. Is it any
wonder that there hasn't been a big new idea
in this field for more than a decade?
Improving the quality of care is a powerful
idea. It promises better treatment, fewer hos-
pital stays, fewer botched surgeries and
extended recoveries.
Boosting prevention making sure
patients get proper screenings and early
treatment before chronic ailments take hold
and run up huge bills is part of that. So is
cutting down on wasteful treatments that
merely run up the bill without providing any
benefit to the patient.
Americans expect demand medical
miracles, high-tech tests, wonder drugs that
cure. Many times they get them. But often
they just get huge bills and little to show for
them. And the system changes slowly, grudg-
ingly.
The concept of paying for performance
isn't about delivering miracles. It's about tak-
ing steps to ensure quality. It shouldn't be
considered a miracle when a patient gets
excellent care.

The slate is still 5



pretty clean I


BY RAY STONER
GUEST COLUMNIST


At the end of the Second
World War Europe was in
shambles. Two years -ago
Hurricane Charley leveled
Port Charlotte.
In both cases the slate was
swept clean. Planners were
presented with an opportuni-
ty to do things the right way.
With a similar clean slate
years ago Cape Coral was
marketed as Florida's premier
community. General Devel-
opment's marketing was
equally deceptive: North Port
has no port. It was easier to
sell land when the city's name
implies gulf access. Con-
sequently the name North
Port, the city with no port.
With profit the motive, not
intelligent planning, today
the fruit of this bad design is
our reality. With no sidewalks
around schools, and roads
impassible to emergency
vehicles, we are following the
same plans that got us in
trouble in the first place.
As Europe was rebuilt the
best of the past was integrat-
ed into a people-friendly
high-speed train and auto-
bahn network. Instead of
engineering everything to be
automobile accessible, the
design was to enhance life
quality. Today's visitor to
Europe is amazed at the
speed and efficiency of this
planning.
So, here we are in Sarasota
County. Since everything is
car friendly, not owning one is
a problem. Try walking up to a
fast-food drive-in window or
a bank. You probably will be
refused service.
You must have a vehicle or
most of the things we take for
granted are inaccessible. This
is the way it was planned -
urban sprawl, strip mall de-
velopment, all designed for
the car, not you.
World-class cities like New
York or Toronto have cheap,
clean, regional high-speed
transport systems that are
people friendly. So what's the
problem here? ,
With the Ringling School of
Art and Design located in
Sarasota, isn't it strange we
are having all these problems?
Have any of our so called
"planners" gone over and
talked to these people?.
Here is an untapped
wealth of information and
expertise we could access at


probably no cost. From all the
current problems Warm
Mineral Springs and SCAT, to
mention a few it sure
seems our "planners" could
use some help.
People congregate in spe-
cific areas for a reason. Towns
evolve in a certain manner.
Florida's population centers
sprang up around river
mouths.
Here, too, were massive
ancient mound complexes of
considerable height. Perched
atop this storm-proof high
ground early traders and fam-
ilies settled.
Wherever people gather,
services are required; butch-
ers, bakers, candlestick mak-
ers. Around these basic ser-
vices towns evolved. Every-
thing was within walking dis-
tance.
Today you see this type of
planning through out the
Northeast. There things
evolved naturally instead of
someone drawing straight
lines on a map.
Today most planning is
local in nature. There are
review and oversight boards,
but no one wants to look at
the big picture.
Aren't there railroad rights
of way all the way to Naples?
Why are these not included in
the plans? Where is the car
train? A high-speed rail transit
system linking the West Coast
airports would significantly
reduce the need to continual-
ly widen the interstate.
Maybe it's tiie someone
set some standards instead of
the landowners and develop-
ers making the rules with gov-
ernment's approval.
Let's look at water, or the.
lack thereof. Fighting over
abundance is really dumb.
Bordered on three sides by
water, how can Florida have
water shortages? What is lack-
ing is a shortage of thinking.
You can't have elected offi-
cials making decisions who
don't have the background to
answer questions put to
them.
You can't know what you
don't know, and if you hire
people who also don't know,
we have a problem. Books are
all well and good, but this
type of knowledge is limited
to the understanding of those
who wrote the books.
When one is looking for
signs something is wrong,

sponsored by the Center for Disease Control and Department
of Health. Many people have never heard of Senior Friendship
Centers located at 2350 Scenic Drive in Venice, or have any idea
of what we do.
We are a private, nonsectarian, nonprofit organization pro-
viding a myriad of services and programs, one of which is
health services for the uninsured or underinsured population
age 50 and older. The patients we serve live on a fixed or limit-
ed income, as many of our Medicare clients do. Our clinic staff
has 30 retired, volunteer, licensed doctors including optical
and dental. (We're always looking for more volunteer physi-
cians.)
In order to participate in the Florida Breast and Cervical
Cancer program you must be a clinic member. It's easy to do;
just call 584-0041 to obtain further information on the criteria.
We are here solely to serve your medical needs in a friendly,
professional atmosphere.
Also, check out the senior center next door. There's music
daily; exercise, a noon meal, crafts and games. Anyone can par-
ticipate; it's open to the public.
Meet new friends, have some fun. Stay healthy and active.

Animal safety tips
for storm season
Editor:
As tropical storms bear
down on Florida, it is impor-
tant to remember to make
arrangements to protect your
animal friends.
One of the most valuable
lessons learned from Hur-
ricane Katrina is to evacuate if
at all possible and to never
leave animals behind. There
is no way of knowing what
may happen to your home
and if or when you will be
able to return. Companion
animals left behind may
drown, die of dehydration or
heat exhaustion, or escape
and become lost.
Fortunately,- many hotels
waive animal restrictions
during disasters. If you can't
afford to stay at a hotel, call
your local humane society or
animal shelter to ask if any
arrangements are being
made for evacuating animals.
Pack a tent so that you can
camp out as a last resort. Also
pack a leash or carrier, bottled
water, bowls, tie-out kit, dry
food, kitty litter and a litter
pan.
If you can't get to your


home, arrange for a neighbor
or friend to take your animals.
If you have any elderly, dis-
abled or disadvantaged
neighbors, offer to help them
evacuate with their animals
- these people, who are
among the most vulnerable,
are also often the most likely
to refuse to evacuate because
of their animals.
If you are forced to leave
animals behind, never leave
them tied up or confined to a
cage or to a single room.
Allow them access to upper
floors and fill bathtubs and
sinks with water. Leave sever-
al weeks' supply of dry food
scattered around the house
and make sure that animals
are wearing ID tags.

Off with the blue collar


We are gradually losing our
blue-collar retirees. Slowly
but surely, it's off with the blue
collar and on with the white
collar. Our area of Florida is
becoming gentrified.
It will be a shame if the
people who do the real labor
in this country can no longer
afford the Florida retirement
dream. Here's one major fac-
tor behind the change in our
area from blue-collar retirees
to white-collar retirees:
About half of the income in
our area comes from pen-
sions, interest, dividends and
capital gains. What is chang-
ing is the decline of the
nation's pension system and
the gradual elimifiation of
pensions, particularly for
blue-collar retirees.
At one time, it was possible
to go to work as a blue-collar,
employee, stay at one compa-
ny for your career and retire
with a nice, comfortable,
guaranteed income for the
rest of your life. That system is
fast disappearing except for
government employees.
In 1985, 89 percent of large


companies offered a tradi-
tional pension plan. Now
only 37 percent do. How did
the pension plan, which was
supposed to fund the golden
years of our blue-collar re-
tirees, slowly disappear? Un-
fortunately, this disaster is a
partnership between busi-
ness and government.
Roughly half of the largest
companies in America that
still have pension plans are
underfunded under the Pen-
sion Reform Bill just passed. A
partial list of those companies
with at least 20 percent
underfunded pension plans
include AFLAC, Anheuser-
Busch, CBS, Exxon, Office
Depot, Proctor & Gamble and
Walt Disney.
How in the world can so
many blue-chip companies
in healthy industries be so
dramatically underfunded
with their pension plans? The
government let 'them, that's
how.
Corporations can buy back
stock, borrow money to make
acquisitions, pay dividends,
but leave their employees'
retirement plans underfund-
ed. That's nonsense.
More and more companies
have decided to put retire-
ment fuifding in 401K plans
and leave the pension plan
mess behind. A 401K retire-
ment plan is nice, but it sim-
ply does not replace a pen-
sion plan, especially for blue-
collar retirees.
Large numbers of employ-
ees don't fully participate in
their company's 401K plan
and 45 percent of all employ-


ees who switch jobs cash out
their 401Ks when they switch.
We should have had a pen-
sion system that held corpo-
rations more fully responsible
for their employees' retire-
ment money. We should also
have recognized that pension
plans are an outstanding tool
to ensure blue-collar workers
have more than Social Se-
curity to fall back on.
We should have given
companies with pension
plans some type of additional
tax credit to encourage more
privately funded retirement
plans.
The switch from blue-col-
lar to white-collar retirees can
be seen in the fancy new
types of home developments
in our area. and the much
larger impact fees being
charged by local government,
We see our local organiza-
tions gradually being taken
over by the younger white-
collar retirees and sometimes
unceremoniously moving
aside the blue-collar retirees
who helped create our local
organizations.
Locally, we need to careful-
ly consider how we create our
future growth plans and our
tax structures to ensure we do
not eliminate our blue-collar
retirees.
Everyone who labors
should have a shot at retiring
in Florida.

Disasters. I'm kind of curious as to who the alleged college
graduate in engineering is that is designing these road con-
struction plans here in Venice and South Venice on 41. We have
a situation where the roads out on Center Road near River
Road are almost complete, but nobody ever travels those. Then
you have the roads at Jacaranda and Center. They're just a dis-
aster. I see people working on them, but only a few workers
here and there. Then there's the project on 41 through North
Venice and Nokomis. That's just nothing but a disaster. I sel-
dom see a worker there. The bridge over Dona Bay is no farther
along than it was four months ago. We have businesses folding.
Aren't these engineers opening their eyes to what's happening?
All these workers should be working on one project, probably
the project over on 41 first. Then as soon as that's done, move
over to Center and Jacaranda, and do that. Then maybe, No. 3,
move over to River Road and Center and do that. They've got
three projects all ripped open at one time, barely anything's
happening at a snail's pace. And the worst thing, businesses are
folding. That's not what this economy needs at this time.


Wrong enemy. Illegal im-
migration is causing an epi-
demic of problems in every
state in the United States.
Terrorism has every citizen in
the world fearful of the next
heinous act against humanity.
Child molesters and pedo-
philes have parents fearful of
letting their children out of
their sight.
Seemingly endless, spiral-
ing gas prices empty our wal-
lets at the pump.
The Iraq War is a boondog-


gle we can't straighten out.
Our elderly must decide
between buying food or pay-


ing exorbitant prices for their
medications and health care.
With all these serious prob-
lems facing America, the
Democrats have finally had
enough. They are taking a
stand.
They are about to wage war

1.00% Mortgage Good or Bad?
Right or Wrong For You?

For the absolute smallest monthly payment possible, we have the
mortgage program for you. A 30 or 40 year mortgage with low payments
lasting from 2 to 5 years. The lowest rate is 1.00%. With a payment starting at
only $253.00 per $100,000 you borrow, you can see how you could save big
dollars by paying off credit cards and bills, including lines of credit with
skyrocketing interest. Your payments are low and will not make any
unexpected increases. This program is about low payments and low
payments only.

SO WHAT'S THE CATCH?

Because your payment is so low, you are only paying about 1/2 of your
monthly interest. The half you don't pay is added back to your balance. You get
2 to. 5 years to use your own unpaid interest to increase your cash flow with a
super low payment and gain huge monthly savings. The amount added to your
balance is just your unpaid interest. Yes, your balance increases. But if you
have a home with a lot of equity or one that will continue to appreciate, the
balance increase has very little impact. Here in Florida, we enjoyed a
tremendous gift of increasing home values. We have been left with a windfall of
equity. Your future new equity or your past windfall will easily cover the small
increase in your balance. Your principal will only increase 3% to 4% per year.
Your home's value can increase 10% or more per year.

As a safety feature, your balance increase is capped at 15%. In real
dollars a $300,000 loan can only increase $45,000. When you refinance or sell,
the unpaid interest that rolled into your balance is paid off by part of your
equity. You never actually pay the unpaid interest out of your pocket.

30 year mortgages can be deceiving. You make payment after payment
and your balance barely drops. It's almost all interest and hardly any principal.
When is the last time you paid off a mortgage-by paying all the payments? With
a 30 year mortgage your balance drops very little and with our plan your
balance does not drop. So the amount of equity you build either way is almost
the same. But with our new program the payment is about 75% less than a 30
year payment. You don't need to pay principal, save your money. Your home's
value will grow on its own.
I To simplify our process, there is no income verification; you simply state your
income.

Hurricane protection idea helps school


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER


Ray Lieberman of Venice,
a volunteer teacher at the
Sarasota County Technical
Institute, has come up with a
unique idea on how to pro-
tect your home from hurri-
canes and make money for
the school: garage-door rein-
forcement brackets.
"The weakest part of your
house is your garage door,"
Lieberman said.
The Federal Alliance for
Safe Homes says approxi-
mately 80 percent of residen-
tial hurricane damage starts
with wind entry through the
garage doors.
"We had a lot of left-over
scrap metal from welding
classes at the institute,"
Lieberman said.


So he devised a set of brack-
ets for a two-car garage door
that will reinforce the door
and offer an inexpensive way
to add hurricane protection.
One bracket mounts per-
manently into the lintel just
above the garage-door spring
and the other is bolted to the
garage floor and is easily
removable using special fas-
teners that come with the kit.
A 2x4, a small piece of ply-
wood and a small tube of
epoxy will have to be pur-
chased from a lumber yard to
complete the installation.
"Similar products sell for
$150 a set," said Lieberman.
Students of the technical
institute welding class are
selling them for $25.
Lieberman said the class
made 75 sets of the brackets.
Most have been sold, but any-


one who is interested in mak-
ing a set can take a class in
welding at SCTI starting the
middle of Oct.
For information about
SCTI classes, call 924-1365.

ON SALE
A limited number of garage-
door brackets will be on sale
today (Friday) at 9 a.m at
Babe's Ace Hardware, 140 E.
Miami Ave., Venice. All profits
will go to the Sarasota County
Technical Institute.


Sarasota County Technical
Institute is located at 4748
Beneva Road, Sarasota.

Civil rights leader Emory Shaw dies at 81


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER


Local businessman and
civil rights pioneer Emory T.
SShaw of Laurel died
Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2006.
He was 81.
He was born Jan. 1,
1925, in Orlando, Fla.,
and came to Laurel 56 years
ago.
Shaw's livelihood came
from his shoe repair store in
Venice, which, according to
his daughter Shelia Shaw, he
would consider his greatest
achievement. He was a mas-
ter at his craft. Shaw was pas-
sionate about fixing shoes,
and fixed them out of his
house after he sold his shop.
He maintained his business
until early 2006.
While shoe repair may
have been his business, Shaw
served his community in a
variety of ways during a
tumultuous time. Shaw was
the president of the local
NAACP during the 1960s. His


main cause was the desegre-
gation of the Sarasota County
school system. Shelia Shaw


remembered
in 1963 inte-
gration
becoming a
reality in
Laurel, and
her father be-
ing a strong
advocate for
the cause.
But Shaw
never cared to

Shaw


take credit for all the deeds
that he did. According to Russ
Snyder, a colleague of Shaw's,
"He was the quiet force of
good in the community. He
did so much for hundreds of
people."
"Everyone loved him be-
cause he loved everyone,"
Shelia Shaw said.
Shaw was a boxer in the
Navy, and decided to open a
gym for young men to learn
how to box. He also helped
with voter registration, ensur-
ing that anyone who wanted


to vote made it to the polls on
election day. As the executive
director of the Venice Hous-
ing Authority, Shaw helped a
lot of children by being a solid
role model. He also always
found time to play a round of
golf, which he dearly loved.
Lessons
As a father, Shaw did his
best to teach his children
respect, even when they were
often given little by bigots in
the community. He wanted
his children to have a sense of
normalcy about their lives,
regardless of how the world
was treating them. He taught
his children to never curse or
insult someone simply be-'
cause of his or her race.
"He was a real gentleman,"
Snyder said, "and he always
kept a positive attitude no
matter what."
In addition to his other
many accomplishments, he
also served on the Sarasota
County Charter Review Board
by appointment by the gover-


nor. He was a member of the
Lions Club, the Knights of
Pythias and a 32nd degree
Mason, and he served the Big
Brothers/Big Sisters of Sara-
sota County. He was a mem-
ber of the Johnson Chapel
Missionary Baptist Church.
His motto for his whole life
was the famous phrase from
"Hamlet": "To thine own self
be true."
Survivors include his wife
of 59 years, Arrie, of Laurel;
daughters Gertha of Tampa,
and Shelia of Laurel; sons
Anthony of Kent, Wash., Eric
of North Port, and Reginald of
Tampa; sister Alta Vasser of
Detroit, Mich.; brother Edgar
of Chicago, 111.; 16 grandchil-
dren; and 25 great grandchil-
dren. He was predeceased in
1999 by his daughter Emoria.
Visitation will be atVenice-
Nokomis United Methodist
Church from 10 a.m. to noon,
Saturday, Sept. 9. A funeral
service will follow at noon.
Burial will be at Venice
Memorial Gardens.


Appeal still pending in DUI cases


STAFF REPORT

It probably won't set a
world record for lengthy court
battles, but the breathalyzer
case is pushing four years and
counting.
"The Second District Court
of Appeal is waiting to decide
whether to hear the case or
not," attorney Robert Harri-
son said.
The state recently ap-


pealed a lower court order
that the manufacturer of the
Intoxilyzer 5000, the breatha-
lyzer used in Sarasota and
Manatee counties, turn over
the software for inspection by
the plaintiffs. The manufac-
turer has repeatedly refused
to reveal the software. It said
showing the software, or
source code, would reveal
"trade secrets."
At the heart of the In-


toxilyzer 5000 issue is
whether repairs or modifica-
tions to the instruments may
have affected the results of
DUI tests.
The protracted legal battle
has put more than 250 pend-
ing DUI cases in three coun-
ties in a holding pattern.
Ironically, while the court
battle still rages over the 5000,
the machine itself has been
mothballed.


On March 27, the 5000 was
replaced by the upgraded
Intoxilyzer 8000.
"We have some problems
with that one, too," Harrison
said.
Harrison said there have
been many times when the
8000 has been reported out of
calibration.
"It may be a better mouse-
trap," Harrison said, "but still
not a good one.",


A year to go before U.S. 41 road project is completed


STAFF REPORT


The construction night-
mare for businesses and mo-
torists along U.S. 41 north of
Venice to S.R. 681 continues
- but only for another year.
The Florida Department of
Transportation is widening
the 3.3-mile stretch of road-
way to six lanes and raising
the bridges over Dona Bay.
The cost is $32 million.
"We are scheduled for
completion the winter of


2007," said FDOT Public In-
formation Officer William
Thomas. "They also \%ill be
starting a six-day work week
beginning Sept. 8."
The only bridges that are
being raised to 12 feet -
nearly double the height of
the present bridges are the
north and south spans over
Dona Bay. The Shakett Creek
Bridge over Roberts Bay will
only be widened.
There is hardly a business
along the construction route


that has not suffered apprecia-
bly because of the roadwork.
And, limited and difficult
access because of the con-
struction isn't the only prob-
lem business owners face.
"We had some construc-
tion workers come in here,
order food, then refuse to
pay," said one restaurant op-
erator. "They are no longer in-
vited to eat here."
The restaurant owner
called the workers' employer.
"They said it wasn't their


problem," the owner said.

Indians


hope to

keep Pace

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice High football fans
will have the opportunity to
see another ranked team
Friday night as Miami Mon-
signor Pace visits Powell-
Davis Stadium.
The Spartans are ranked
fifth in the state in Class 3A.
Game time is 7:30 p.m.
Friday night will be Vikings
Pop Warner night at Powell-
Davis Stadium. All Venice
Vikings football players and
cheerleaders will be admit-
ted free. There must be one
coach or chaperone for each
10 kids. Kids should wear
their jerseys.
Venice's first three oppo-
nents this season have lofty
rankings. Lakeland is No. 1 in
5A. Riverview is No. 10 in 6A.
Offensive consistency is
one of Venice's main con-
cerns entering the Pace
game. The Indians have
moved the ball well at times,
thanks to the running of Al
Mitchell, Paul Costanzo and
Jimmy Laurie. They have
moved the chains up to the
red zone. But the Indians
have had trouble finishing
- or in other words finding
the end zone. They only
have one touchdown all sea-
son. Venice has been out-
scored 70-9 this season.
Doing the Indians in have
been missed blocking as-
signments and crushing pen-
alties.
Head coach Nick Cole-
man would like to see those
two areas improve pronto.
i Another concern of Venice
has to be controlling the air
threat Pace poses. Last year,
Venice stuffed the Pace
ground game and owned the
first half. The Spartans went
upstairs and hit big play
after big play. Pace eventu-
ally won, 35-14.
Pace acts as a tuneup for
Venice's district opener Sept.
16 at Charlotte. The Tarpons
are 2-0 heading into Friday's
game against always tough
Immokalee.

Knott called

up to Padres

STAFF REPORT

Former Venice High base-
ball standout Jon Knott has
been called up to the parent
San Diego Padres after an-
other bang-up season at the
plate in Triple A ball.
According to family

Wednesday in Mississippi.
He had just completed the
Pacific Coast League season
for the Portland Beavers on
Monday. He led the team in
home runs and RBIs.
Knott, an outfielder/first
baseman, flew to San Diego
Thursday. The Padres will
play a three-game set in San
Francisco this weekend. The
Padres are just one game
behind the Dodgers in the
NL West and they went into
Thursday night leading the
NL Wild Card chase by three


games.
This is Knott's second
call-up with the Padres. He
was also called up in 2004.

nent to give his girls a fight.
Bishop Verot came to the
Teepee Thursday night and
scrapped with the Lady In-
dians. The Venice girls de-
fended their turf with a three-
game sweep 25-17, 25-23,
25-21.
Verot, which came in the
No. 8 ranked team in 3A, fell
to 3-2. Venice, No. 1 in 5A,


improved to 7-0.
"They pushed and we
flexed our muscles a little
bit," Wheatley said. "I was
pleased with a lot of things.
There's still a long way to go.
There's always things to im-
prove on."
Verot is coached by form-
er VHS standout Brook Sand-
burg.
"She knows what we're
about," Wheatley said. "She
was here when we won the
district for the first time."
Sandburg's team is also
young.


"We're babies," she said.
"We only have one senior."
Big middle hitter soph-
omore Stephanie Manone -
broke her ankle last week.
Venice had a number of
girls contribute in big ways
Thursday night.
Finally healthy after being
saddled with the flu, senior
outside hitter Natalie Gau-
dreau exploded with 14 kills.
Kaylee Ream, another out-
side, had six kills.
"Casie Richards blocked a
lot of balls," Wheatley said.
"Danielle Witte had a mess 'o


kills. Nickie Halbert did an
outstanding job spreading
the ball around."
Ashley Graf also showed
versatility. She had a number
of kills and she also served
up important points during
Lady Indian runs.
The Venice varsity's next
action is Tuesday at home
against Southeast.
The junior varsity and
freshmen will play Monday
night at Sarasota.
The junior varsity improv-
ed its record to 11-0 Thurs-
day with 25-15, 25-19 victor-


ies over Bishop Verot. Kyela
Faett led the way with six kills.

Life on the run


Clark hopes for
another solid cross
country season.

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


It's not easy being a high
school coach. You get good
athletes and have a great sea-
son, and then poof, you lose
key athletes to graduation.
Brenda Clark had a memo-
rable season with the Venice
girls cross country team. The
Lady Indians earned a chance
to run with the best at the
state meet in Dade City.
But gone are two of the
top three runners on the
team No. 1 Stephanie Kors-
zen and No. 3 Genna Jones.
Clark is fortunate to have
a few good runners from
the 2005 team coming back.
They built the foundation for
the 2006 squad.
Last year's No. 2 Chelsea
Rose is back for her junior
year. She pushed Korszen for
No. 1 a year ago. She should
have that spot this year. Rose
will have to work to hold off
Sara Britton, who has made
tremendous strides in the
offseason.
"She's right behind Chels-
ea," Clark said. "She has
worked so hard."
Last year's No. 4 Erin
McCullough will be a
senior. She is a solid runner
who also has come a long
way.
There are a number of
girls from last year's junior
varsity who are vying to
make it at No. 4 and No. 5.
Seniors Sarah Wilcox and
Veronica Bourdorva and jun-


iors Kim Pinkerton and Jes-
sica Konecnik will be step-
ping up.
The junior varsity has
Emily Korszen, Tiffany Miller,
Giana Barnett, Christina
Knott, Katee Nesmith, Amber
Rose Courville and Rosa
Consuella.
"We're not quite as strong
as last year, but I'm pleased
with who stepped up," Clark
said. "Just to make it back to
the state meet would be an
awesome accomplishment."
The girls worked out over
the summer, beginning in
June.
"We ran at the beach, the
Special Olympics track, all
over," Clark said.
VENICE INVITATIONAL
SATURDAY The course at
Pinebrook Park may be a bit
soggy in some spots, but
that's never stopped Venice
from holding its invitational
meet in the past.
Venice will once again
hold its Invitational this
Saturday on the peaceful
trails of Pinebrook, located
just north of Wellfield.
The girls varsity race will
begin at 8:30 a.m. That will
be followed by the boys vars-
ity race. The junior varsity
squad will also race after the
varsity.
There are lots of schools
coming to the invitational
- Bayshore, Booker, Braden
River, Bradenton Christian,
Cardinal Mooney, Lakewood
Ranch, Lemon Bay, Manatee,
North Port, Port Charlotte,
Palmetto, Riverview, Sara-
sota, Sarasota Christian,

mann, Out of Doors and
Bishop Verot.

totals were down compared
to numbers in previous
years. We are fueled with
hope for a better nesting
season this year.
So start the annual beach
monitoring activities of
Coastal Wildlife Club's sea
turtle patrol, a group of


nearly 100 volunteers who
walk local beaches at or near
sunrise each morning from
May through October.
Although it's hard to vis-
ualize it now, the first few
mornings are actually a bit
brisk by Florida standards.
We're all excited, looking for
those .very distinguishable
tracks that lead to (primarily)
loggerhead turtle nests.
The first few weeks are
uneventful, and the days are
merely walks where volun-
teers are wishing and hoping
to see turtles.
As turtle activity picks up
and the numbers of nests
start to increase, we hear a
storm called Alberto is on its
way. Although property in


this area doesn't suffer storm
damage, the elevated wind
and waves destroy turtle
nests on some zones
nearly all of those laid so far.
We also see tracks left by
predators like raccoons, arm-
adillos, birds and crabs.
Weeks pass, and at the
end of June it happens:
hatchings. Nests have ma-
tured and hatchling tracks
show us they've made it to
the gulf
And then one morning
morning, we have the op-
portunity to witness some,
hatchlings make it into the
gulf. What an exhilarating
feeling. We can't wait to go
back tomorrow and do it
again.


COURTESY PHOTO
Tiny loggerhead hatchlings scramble to the gulf just after dawn on Aug. 24 on Manasota Key,
north of Middle Beach. Perhaps one of them will be a survivor and reach reproductive maturity
30 years from now and return here to nest and continue the cycle.


Take it easy on nesting turtles


STAFF REPORT


It is important to be aware
of the proper ways to share,
the beaches during nesting
and hatchling season, which
runs through Oct. 31. Here
are the Dos and Don'ts of sea
turtle nesting season.
Do:
Remain quiet and observe
from a distance if you en-
counter a nesting turtle.
Shield or turn off outdoor
lights visible on the beach
from May through October.
Close drapes after dark
and put beach furniture far
back from the water.
Fill in holes on the beach
that may entrap hatchlings


on their way to the water.
Place trash in its proper
place.
Do not:
Approach nesting turtles
or hatchlings leaving nests,
make noise or shine light at
turtles.
Use flashlights or fishing
lamps on the beach during
nesting season.
Encourage a turtle to
move while nesting or pick up
hatchlings that have emerged.
Use fireworks on the
beach. ..
Sea turtle nests laid in
May are beginning to hatch,
and .already monitors have
seen incidents of hatchlings
being disoriented from lights,


reported Paula Clark, Sea
Turtle Program intern/volun-
teer coordinator. In another
case, it appears someone
may have collected the hatch-
lings themselves.
"We need to remind people
to let Mother Nature take its
course and not interfere with
either sea turtles laying nests
or with hatchlings emerging
from them," she said. "If
beachgoers witness a hatch
and see the hatchlings head-
ing in the wrong direction,
they should call the Sea Turtle
Program hotline at 388-4331.
"We should also remind
people to make sure they are
following the sea turtle ordi-
nances and keeping lights off


the beach and removing bar-
riers from shorelines."
Residents and visitors
should be sure to shield in-
terior lights that shine onto
,beaches and not leave any
barriers in the sand, includ-
ing lawn furniture and toys
left on the beach. You can also
lend a hand by picking up
trash left behind on the beach.
Sand castles and holes dug
in the sand can, also be bar-
riers for hatchlings, so knock
your sand castles over before
you head home and make
sure to fill up any holes dug
during play time.

"Each one of these kids, I can tell you where they

Jefferson said.
Jefferson has been employed by the Laurel
Civic Association for six years. He has run
the Teen Empowerment Program since .
its inception four years ago.
Jefferson's indirect journey to the
LCA to work with children came
after 24 years in the Navy.
After retiring from the Navy, he
lived in New Jersey. Jefferson
came to Florida to care for his
sister who had a stroke and, ,i,
while he was here, he volun-" '
teered to work for the LCA. ",
"I was helping Sandra (LCA "
Director Sandra Terry) with .
the kids," Jefferson said.
"When I got ready to leave,
she said, 'I can't afford to let
you go,' because she had seen '
a difference in the behavior f
(of the children) in the short
time I was here. We talked
about it and she made me an

"We actually stated the program because the kids who were
12 years old and over, who aren't able to go into the regular
camps and whose families can't afford to pay for the speciality
camps that they run throughout the county, they were on the
streets, they were doing nothing," said Jefferson.
Jefferson and Terry met and the Teen Empowerment Prog-
ram was born.
The program, which serves 12- to 16-year-olds, is very struc-
tured.
"They go through seven weeks of very intense programs,
normally starting our day at 9 a.m., but if we have field trips or
something like that, 7:30 or 8, and it ends usually at 3 or 4,"
Jefferson notes. The program meets Monday through

He actually knows many of them because they are involved
with the Laurel Civic Association from as early as kindergarten.
Hundreds of children are being mentored by LCA Director
Sandra Terry, John Jefferson and their many volunteers
through other programs each year.
The Homework Assistance program has 65 children who
come to The Sandra Terry Community Center four days a week
after school. In addition to having children complete their
homework, the program seeks "to instill an appreciation and
commitment to school, teach volunteerism, learn social skills,
and enhance self worth," according to the LCAWeb site.
The Earning by Learning summer reading program this year
had 125 children of all ages. Children who are below their read-
ing levels participate in this six-week program.

SUZY COHEN, R.PH.
COLUMNIST
Q: I've been taking pre-
scribed Naproxen for my arthri-
tis and back pain. I'm also wor-
ried about heart disease, so I
want to take an aspirin each
day, but I don't dare do this
because my naproxen says not
to take aspirin with it. So my
question is, will naproxen be
enough to protect my heart by
itself? R.B., Schenectady, N.Y.
A: No, it may raise your
risk for heart disease,
depending on the study
you read. And despite a
documented interaction,
some doctors still order baby
aspirin daily, along with
another arthritis drug such as
ibuprofen or naproxen. I see
this quite frequently, but it
worries me. This combina-
tion of two blood-thinning
drugs raises the risk for
gastric bleeding and ulcers,
especially for seniors.
Ask your physician if he
minds if you eat a little
crystallized ginger each day,
or take cod liver oil or
omega-3 fish oils with meals.
These natural alternatives
are safer. They're sold widely
and, best of all, they have
anti-inflammatory effects
that will ease your aches and
pains and protect your heart
as well.
Q: I take Actonel and Viactiv
calcium supplements for my
osteoporosis. Is there a natural

program you recommend to
keep me from getting softer
bones? I'm only 62 and scared
of more damage. M.A.,
Elmont, N.Y.
A: If you're scared of
more damage, do what you
can to protect the minerals
that you still have in your
bones. Look for supplements
that contain calcium citrate
along with magnesium,
vitamin D, phosphorous,
vanadium, selenium and
zinc. See your doctor so he
can check for other types of
damage, which sometimes
occurs in the stomach and
esophagus with bisphospho-'
nate drugs like Actonel,
Boniva and Fosamax.
When most people think
of osteoporosis, they think
of taking calcium, but when
I think about osteoporosis, I
think about food. I've seen a,
few bulletproof studies that
link the consumption of
excessive animal protein to
bone loss. You get animal
proteins from meat, cheese
and milk. Heavy meat-eaters
lose more calcium than
plant-munchers although
plant-munchers run out of
B12 and L-carnitine, unlike
meat-eaters).

hamburger can cost a
woman 28 milligram of
precious calcium. Prime rib,
yummy caffeine-laden lattes,
soothing nightcaps and even
table salt can make you spill
calcium, and guess where it
comes from? Your bones!
Now guess how it leaves your
body? Out through your
urine. So think about what
happens when calcium
passes through these tiny
little urinary tracts, day after
day. It gunks up and then
some people pass it as a
stone or get kidney disease.
Sure, there are other fac-
tors involved, but my hope is
to convince you to tilt your
diet in favor of leafy greens
.like kale, chard, turnip
greens, broccoli and Brussels
sprouts and, of course, fruits
in every color of the rainbow.

HOROSCOPE Sept. 8-14


ARIES (March 21-April'
19). Take advantage
of your solid, pur-
poseful mood by document-
ing it. There's something about
writing that crystallizes your
thoughts into guideposts for
the future you.to use when
feeling lost or vague.

( TAURUS (April 20-May
20). You're curious. It's
wise to read and., -
study other philosophies. Keep
in mind, of course, that
nobody will be better
equipped to develop a philos-
ophy that works for you than
you are.

< GEMINI (May 21-June
21). Your eyes are
bright, and when you
speak, your voice rings out in a
major key. Who wouldn't want
such a cheerful person on their
team? Of course, you can't join
every team.

SCANCER (June 22-July
22). Usually, you like
to figure things out as
you go. But you could use
some formal education regard-
ing this new endeavor of
yours.The only thing more
costly than paying for a class
will be not paying for one.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
No matter how specif-
ic your goal, cause or
passion is, you can find a
group that fits your needs
today. People who enjoy pick-
les.with peanut butter?
Citizens who go boating in ball
gowns? No idea is too crazy.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22). Your superintelli-
gence is a definite
asset, but unless you have
enough reasons to succeed
in your purpose, you won't get
there. The stars illuminate at
least 10 more reasons by
nightfall.

23). Heartfelt commu-
nication helps you
take a relationship where it
needs to go. For some, the
marriage questions will be
addressed. Prepare for the
arrival of guests or the return
of a loved one tonight.

S SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
21). Are you yearning
":" to discover some
weighty study, such as art, phi-
losophy or physics? This is your
day to start. One person shows
you the right doors to open so
you can get straight to the
heart of the matter.

.. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-
Dec. 21). You work at a
V" different pace than
those around you. Faster isn't
better, and slower isn't worse.
The thing you can be sure of is
that your contributions are
absolutely valuable.

SCAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). You're a won-
derfully talented stu-
dent of human nature, and this
gives you an edge in anything
you choose to do. Opportunity
is passed to you. A tired indi-
vidual gives something up -
your chance to carry the torch.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18). You have
such power over your
thoughts now that you can
mentally coax yourself into the
trouble-free zone. With the
right attitude, you could feel
as though you have no
problems at all and maybe
you don't.

\ PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20). Work is a com-
munity effort now.
You're not even sure that the
goal is a reasonable one,
but you must attempt the
impossible in order to know
what's possible.

There's no place


like home


ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST


San Francisco was dynam-
ic. In the evenings I was
relieved to return to my
niece's home in the suburbs
after excursions to the Golden
Gate Bridge, the redwoods,
the spectacular views and the
foreign restaurants.
It took at least three free-
way connections and more
than an hour to get from one
place to another each day. If
there is a fuel shortage, it cer-
tainly is not apparent around
this city- gridlock still exists.
(And I literally got car sick
going up and down the
mountains near Sausalito.)
My next vacation stop was
Seattle. My nephew's family
of four children kept me hop-
ping. The nanny drove us
around to the parks, "Fairy-
land," Oriental restaurants
(which the children preferred
over hamburgers) and local
sites.
At home on a daily basis,
the mom leaves for Microsoft
and the dad goes to his guru
computer group. In the
evenings, out come the X-
boxes, iPods and three lap-


tops plugged in while the
wall-size high-definition TV
plays the movie selection of
the day.
It was a wonderful visit but
I wouldn't want to live there.
Give me the slower pace of
South Venice life.
How pleasant to see homes
and landscapes that are com-
fortably next to one another,
not like the West Coast, where
there is a mere 3-foot alley
between one house and the
next with the sound of air
conditioners running all day
and night throughout .the
neighborhoods.
I want to mention this: You
know how someone usually
gets stuck driving you to and
from the airport? On this trip I
took the Blue Sky Airport
Limousine Service to and
from Tampa. Do your family a
favor next time and pay for
this service. It is not too
expensive and adds luxury to
the vacation.
After a restful Labor Day
weekend, I am now back at
work at the South Venice Civic
Association ready to get into
my community work.
The first invitations to the
South Venice Beach Expo are
mailed, and I am scheduling
our social and business meet-
ings now that the season is
about upon us.
It's really true there is no
place like home.
Ellen Hillstrom is the
South Venice Civic
Association development
director. She writes a regular
column for this page. -

St. Louis hits bullseye in Georgia


BYGABRIELA RAMIREZ
SUN INTERN

It doesn't take perfect aim,
accuracy and attitude to
shoot a bow and arrow, but
Billie Rae St. Louis proved she
had the right combination of
those things and became a
world champion.
The North Port High
School student won the Arch-
ery Shooter Association world
championship in the youth
girl's division during the sec-
ond week of August. The tour-
nament took place in Fort
Benning, Ga.
"I worked really hard, but I
also had fun, and when it
came down to the last few tar-
gets I was .in the lead," St.
Louis said.
When the final results for
the tournament were an-
nounced, she came in first
place, followed by a girl from
Florida and one from Illinois.
"I shot real good and was in
first place by one point," St.
Louis said.
At only 15, she has already
competed in many archery
tournaments across the
nation, including competi-
tions in Michigan, Louisiana,
Alabama, Tennessee and else-
where.
"When I first saw my dad
shooting, he was getting
ready for hunting season," St.
Louis said. "My brother and I
were amazed."
"I want to shoot, I want to
shoot," they repeatedly told
Rick, their father, who was left
with no choice but to buy
them a small bow from Wal-
Mart..
Since that moment, Billie
Rae and her brother, Bubba,
13. grew .to. love .archery. ,She.
was 7 year-s old when she be-
gan serious archery practice;
two years later she won her
first state tournament.
"I like the sport because
you lean to respect the peo-
ple around you and you meet
many of them," St. Louis said.
"I have a lot of friends all over
the country."
Balancing act
The North Port High
School sophomore said her
involvement in the sport of
archery at the world level also
affects her academically. Trav-

yielded a big win in a recent Georgia archery tournament.


eling every other weekend out
of state, or even out of the
county, sometimes causes her
to miss school on Monday or
Friday.
"Most of my teachers are
unere.tanding betcaue the.
sport is more of a life experi-
ence," St. Louis said.
Keeping up in school is not
her only worry: North Port
law is another. Archery is not
allowed within the city limits;
therefore, she can only prac-
tice out of town.
"I've talked to people in
school about allowing archery
in North Port and starting
some sort of archery course
(or extracurricular activity) in
school," St. Louis said. "This-
way it would be free."
Meanwhile, she attends


archery classes in Venice,
which "tend to get expensive,"
but during school breaks
when her father' is out of
town, she cannot attend the
classes orpractice ,in, North
Port., ,,;. ,


Her advice to other bow-
and-arrow shooters is never
to give up no matter how dif-
ficult it might seem because it
just takes a lot of practice.

/S The "
condition known as
Sciatica is characterized
by pain, tingling, and
weakness that begins in the
hip and buttocks and continues
down the leg. To make matters
worse, this often-debilitating pain
can be accompanied by back pain
that is more severe than the leg
pain. The term "Sciatica" refers to
the Sciatic Nerve, which runs from
each side of the lower spine' through
deep in the rear and back of the thigh,
all the way to the foot. Sciatica pain
can result when nerve roots in the
lower spine become irritated or
compressed. Since the Chiropractor
is well versed in precisely these
matters, chiropractic treatment is
often considered as the best
conservative course of treatment.

P.S. The Sciatic Nerve is the largest
single nerve in the human body.

'... fun when
it stops raining'
"Hell Muddah, Hello
Fadduh!," the Allan Sherman
musical, is bringing crowds to
the Venice Little Theatre's
Pinkerton Theatre. Happy
thoughts of the good old days
at Camp Granada make for
memories and one fun show,
which runs Tuesday-Saturday
at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2
p.m. through Sept. 17. Tickets
are $22.
Sherman has been called
"the Weird Al" of the 1960s,
when his satirical songs were
played on every radio station.
Named for Sherman's original
parody letter from "Camp
Granada," "Hello Muddah,
Hello Fadduh!" follows the
protagonist Barry Bockman,
from his childhood days at
camp right through his life -
with absurdist and hysterical
lyrics accompanying every
phase of growing up and
growing old.
"Hello Muddah, Hello Fad-
duh!" received four Drama
Desk Nominations, and the
Outer Critics' Circle Nomin-
ation for Outstanding Off-
Broadway musical in 1992.
Presented as a cabaret pro-
duction at VLT, the show is
being directed by Ellie Pat-


tison, herself a very familiar
local musical comedy actress.
Musical director is Michelle
Kasanofsky and stage man-
ager is Sue Brennan. Onstage
are Laurie Colton-Farrar, Cara
Herman, Damian Stone,
Scott Vitale and Nidal Zarour.
The theater is at 140 W
Tampa Ave. Summer box
office hours are 10 a.m.-2
p.m. Monday through Friday
and 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday.
The box office opens one
hour before all performances.

might go bump in the night in

Air travel tips for diabetics


Air travel guidelines for diabetics


STAFF REPORT


In response to numerous
questions from the diabetes
community following the
change in airport security
measures Aug. 10, dLife is-
sued tips on traveling by air
with insulin and other dia-
betes medication.
Aug. 10, the U.S. Depart-
ment of Homeland Security
raised the national security
level to High (Orange) for all
U.S. commercial flights. In
addition, new travel restric-
tions have been put in place,
including a ban of all liquids,
gels, lotions and creams of
any kind in carry-on luggage.
According to the Transpor-
tation Security Administra-
tion (TSA), all necessary med-
ications, including insulin,
are exempt from this ban.


Prescription medications
should be labeled as such,
and the name on the label
must match the name on the
passenger ticket. In addition,
dLife suggests that if a person
with diabetes is traveling with
an insulin pump, they should
carry a letter from their physi-
cian on letterhead explaining
what the device is and why it
should not be disconnected.
"Keep insulin vials and
pens in their original packag-
ing and let security personnel
know you have diabetes and
are carrying insulin and test-
ing supplies," dLife Managing
Editor Paula Ford-Martin
said.
"It's important to give
yourself adequate time to get
through security. And call
your airline before traveling
to check on any additional


restrictions that may be
imposed at the carrier level.
This is a developing situation
and dLife will continue to stay
on top of the latest air travel
requirements at dLife.com."

For Your Diabetes Life is a
division of LifeMed Media.
dLife represents the first inte-
grated media network for the
estimated 21 million people
"living with diabetes, plus their
families and those at risk of
developing diabetes, some 80
million in all. dLife provides
expert information, insight,
advice and inspiration to this

Carnival comments on Alaska cruise tax


STAFF REPORT *


Carnival Corporation com-
mented on the potential im-
pact of Alaska's Ballot Initi-
ative 2, which was approved
by the state's voters and is ex-
pected to be implemented in
2007.
Although still subject to
final certification by the state,
the new taxes include a $50
per passenger head tax which
will increase the government
taxes and fees paid bypassen-
gers embarking on Alaskan
cruises. At this time, the com-
pany cannot estimate the
impact these additional pas-
senger taxes may have on its
Alaskan cruise business. .
In addition to the head tax,
the initiative includes a gam-


SAll New

'Galleria

iRec Roon


ing tax on any gambling con-
ducted within state waters as
well as a state corporate in-
come tax for cruise lines op-
erating ships in Alaska. Carn-
ival estimates that the gaming
and income taxes may reduce
2007 earnings per share by
approximately $0.03.
The initiative also calls for
cruise lines to reveal profits
on shore excursions and any
advertising revenues earned
from shoreside businesses.
Carnival Corporation & plc
brands currently carry ap-
proximately 560,000 passen-
gers annually in Alaska
aboard 16 cruise ships -- eight
from Holland America Line,
seven from Princess Cruises
and one from Carnival Cruise
Lines.

"We are disappointed that
the Ballot Initiative 2 has pass-
ed as we believe this will inhib-
it the future growth and expan-
sion of Alaska's tourism busi-
ness," said MickyArison, Carn-
ival Corporation & plc chair-
man and CEO. "The estimates
of the impact of these taxes are
being made prior to our finaliz-
ing deployment, legal and
other business decisions that
will need to be considered as a
result of this initiative."
Carnival Corporation & plc
is the largest cruise vacation
group in the world, with a
portfolio of 12 cruise brands
in North America, Europe and
Australia.


STAFF REPORT


In an effort to help ease the
misconception and corifu-
sion for the millions of Amer-
icans who travel by plane and
have diabetes, dLife has as-
sembled this comprehensive
list of guidelines to help peo-
ple understand what is need-
ed to travel. It has been com-
piled and updated by dLife.
If you have diabetes, you
should be aware of recent
changes to airport security
that will impact your packing
and preparation for air travel.
The following tips can help
you make traveling with your
diabetes management tools
easier:
Make sure all medication
has the proper labels with the
name that matches the pas-
senger's ticket.
Give yourself enough
time to check in and board
the plane. Anticipate thatyou
will be stopped, searched,
and possibly .questioned
about your diabetes supplies.
As stress can affect your dia-
betes, give yourself enough
time to comfortably navigate
security checkpoints.
Be prepared with a pre-
scription from your doctor for
every diabetes supply you
may be carrying. Again, make
sure that the prescription
name matches the one on
your ticket.
If you have been wearing
an insulin pump for a while,
be certain to have a current
prescription from your doc-
tor. Ask your doctor to reissue
a prescription, if necessary.
The same applies for any
continuous glucose monitor-
ing device you may be wear-

ing. Because these devices are
relatively new, TSA personnel
are likely to be unfamiliar
with them. Bring your pre-
scription to avoid problems.
Make sure you bring
syringes and vials of insulin in
their original packaging and
with a prescription. Even if
you use an insulin pump, be
sure to bring back-up insulin
and syringes.
Don't panic if your insulin
cannot be refrigerated for the
flight. It will last in room tem-
perature for up to several
weeks.
Know what is and isn't al-
lowed by the TSA guidelines:
prescription medicine with a
name that matches the passen-
ger's ticket; up to 8 oz. of liquid
(insulin) or low blood sugar
treatment gel and up to 4 oz. of
nonprescription liquid med-
ications are permitted.
If you need to bring extra
diabetes supplies that are in
excess ofte, amount allowed
in your carry onibesure,+to
pack them in your checked
luggage. Since checked bag-
gage may be subjected ito cold
temperatures, be sure to care-
fully insulate any insulin bot-
tles. Inspect the insulin after
you arrive for crystallization
or cloudiness. If you suspect
that the insulin may be spoil-
ed, discard the bottle and do
not use it.


Many people with dia-
betes carry a tube of cake
icing to treat a hypoglycemic
episode for your travels, re-
place this cake icing with a gel
marketed specifically for the
treatment of low blood glu-
cose.
If you travel with a glu-
cagon kit, be sure that you
have your prescription for it
and that it matches the name
on your ticket.
If a discussion about your
diabetes supplies occurs at
the security checkpoints, take
measures to stay calm. Ask to.
speak with the Transportation
Security Officer Supervisor if
the discussion escalates to an
uncomfortable level.
Plan in advance The
TSA officers are responsible
for making sure the passen-
gers arld the plane are safe.
The more information you
have from your doctor, the
easier security checks can be.
If yol feel you must lock
i youagspuse a-TSA-apprdV-
ed lock that screeners, can
open without having to dam-
age the lock or your luggage..
These locks feature a special
symbol that security person-
nel are trained to recognize.
The list was compiled from
TSA directives and from vari-
ous other sources by dLife.

BULLSEYE from Page 8B
A few years back, when she
attended a tournament in
Michigan, people tried to dis-
courage her father. .
"Don't worry if your daugh-
ter gets beat; Northerners
shoot better than South-
erners," those people told her
dad, who didn't take notice of
the comment.
His daughter competed
against boys and girls and
won first place in the Mich-
igan tournament.
"It's not just a guy sport,
but having more girls involv-
ed would be awesome," St.
Louis said. "Anyone can
shoot; it's all up to whether
they want to or not."
Sponsors like the pros


According to St. Louis,
once she became, a world
chaap^o ~at Her ]ast(,,una:
ment,-various arche-ry com-7
panies throughout the coun-
try offered her sponsorships.
"I had business owners
come up to me and tell me to
try their equipment and
they'll sponsor'me," St. Louis
said. "There's people that just
help you with everything."
She's very thankful to all
her sponsors, especially to
Eric Cook, who she says is the
reason she has other spon-
sors, and to her shooting
coach, Bobbi Koctor.
In between the bows and
arrows, she also tries to be a
normal teenager. During her
spare time she likes to play
football and spend time with
friends, who she says would
describe her as athletic, out-
going and trustworthy.
"I take care of myself, I'm
easy to talk to and I try to help
out as much as I can around
home," said St. Louis, who is
also involved in NPHS's Junior
Reserve Officer Training
Corps program.
JROTC programs run
through the nation's Army,
Navy, Air Force and Marines,
and are taught as elective
courses in high schools.
Students enrolled in such
programs learn about self-
discipline, teamwork, motiva-
tion and confidence.
"They teach you a lot about
respect and responsibility,'but
just because you join JROTC,
it doesn't mean you have to go
into the Army," St. Louis said.
She likes this program
because it helps her organize
her life and she enjoys wear-
ing the JROTC uniform every
Wednesday to school.
Her performance in JROTC
and the sport of archery also
make her a potential candi-
date for scholarships. She said
a very valuable thing she
learns through both is how to
be patient
The world champion in
archery was also named the
Second Runner-up Shooter of
the year by the Archery
Shooter Association.
"You can have the Wal-
Mart equipment and still be
good at it," St. Louis said. "All
you need is practice."

Seeking and finding




the 'woman of valor'


RABBI BARBARA AIELLO
f el1.1.' f; f; 'f. ,',


In Hebrew it's called eshet
chayil, and it means "a wom-
an of valor." The words com-
prise part of a two-verse
poem with which King Solo-
mon concludes the Book of
Proverbs. For us here in Italy
and for many Jews and non-
Jews around the world, our
own "woman of valor" is Day-
na Klein, the unlikely hero of
the Seattle (Wash.) Jewish
Federation shootings of Fri-
day, July 28.
That afternoon a crazed
gunman, Naveed Afzal Hag,
was overwhelmed by his hat-
red of the Jews. He packed
two semi-automatic hand
guns, snagged a teenage host-
age dnd burst into the federa-
tion offices, killing the interim
director and wounding five
other workers as well.


One of the wounded was
Dayna Klein. News reports
paint a frightening picture.
Five months pregnant and
.shot in the arm as she shield-
ed her belly, Dayna crawled to
a phone, dialed 911 and with
Hag holding his gun to her
head, calmly spoke to her
would-be murderer,, .helping
him to surrender to the police
who were waiting outside.
Incredibly, we Jews here in
Southern Italy had the oppor-
tunity to get to know Dayna.
Months before Passover, she
and her husband, Erez,
helped our small and strug-
gling chavurah '(group of
friends) plan and celebrate
what was the first Passover
Seder to be held in Palermo,
Sicily, in 500 years.
Dayna and Erez came to
Sicily bringing with .them
Jewish prayer books, Bibles
and seder plates, which they
lugged from Seattle to Pal-
ermo. These came along with
handmade Elijah's cups and
matzah covers, beautiful
Passover ritual items that
were crafted by lewish Sun-
day school students in Seattle
and in New York. All orga-
nized by Dayna.

gogue, Ner Tamid del Sud

our tiny shul never had it so
good. For several years we
have worked hard to help
Italians from Sicily and Cala-
bria find and reconnect with
their Jewish roots. After the
Jews of Spain were expelled
from their homeland in 1492,
many, including my own an-
cestors, made the long jour-
ney to. Sicily, Sardinia and
Calabria, searching for peace
and freedom. Shortly after-
ward the long arm of Grand
Inquisitor Torquemada
reached deep into the Med-
iterranean and the slaughter
began again. In the face of
forced conversions, where

Federation welcomes IDF soldier to Israel rally


STAFF REPORT
On Aug. 24, the Sarasota-
Manatee Jewish Federation
united a 20-year-old IDF sol-
dier, Yehuda Werdesheim,
fresh from the front lines of
the battle with Hezbollahl in
southern Lebanon, to a rally
in support of the people of
Israel. Approximately 350
members of the community
came to Temple Emanu-El to
hear his story,
The audience waited
patiently to hear the young
man he missed his flight
and was an hour late. The
speakers, Dr. Lewis Hanan,
president of the Sarasota-
Manatee Jewish Federation,


Marty Haberer, associate ex-
ecutive director of the federa-
tion, and the Community
Shaliach (emissary) Eddie
Fraiman, told stories of recent
trips to and

in Israel, and
Cantor Marci
S 1Viktus from
the Jewish
Center ofVen-
ice sang many
-, songs to en-
tertain the
Viktus crowd.
Finally, Wer-
desheim made his entrance
down the center of the aisle,
looking proud in his military


uniform.
He grew up in the United
States but mrnae alivah to
Israel at 18 ,-,hisartst'f.m-
ily was a 'majo6 influence in
this decision. Werdeshetm's
words were heartfelt as he
told his story: His transforma-
tion from a 'typical American
kid, sitting on the beach with
his friends in Israel to an
Israeli soldier in combat:"
Werdesheim was shot in
the arm just two weeks before
the rally while engaged in a
firefight with terrorists.

ish Federation raised more

AIELLO fromiPage12B


Jews were tortured into giving
up their religion, many south-
ern Italian Jews became mar-
ranos, converts to Cathol-
icism under duress.
Many more, like my own
relatives,,held,. on, to their
Jewish roots by practicing in
secret,..
Daynia was fascinated by
our history and our struggle,
and during our correspon-
dence I shared my dreams for
our congregation while Day-
na offered heartfelt support.
On our first evening together
we gathered in a tiny apart-
ment in historic Palermo
where World War II remnants
of bombed-out buildings still
stand. Dayna and Erez lis-
tened to the stories of our
families, including how diffi-
cult it is for Jews like Viviana,
Salvo and Marissa to observe
and celebrate in an area
where so much Jewish tradi-
tion has been hidden or
destroyed.
The next morning we
toured what was once the
thriving Jewish quarter of Pal-
ermo. We shared the remain-
ing bits and pieces of Sicilian
Jewish heritage with Dayna,
who wept openly at all we had
lost.
That night as I led the
Passover seder along with fel-
low Italian Jew, Salvo Par-
rucca, a ceramic artist who.
hopes to study for the rab-
binate, we were certain that
we had found a treasure in
Dayna. Indeed our precious
relationship continued when,
after she returned to Seattle,
Dayna collected the funds
necessary for Salvo to make a
trip to the Leo Baeck College
in London so that he could
see seminary life firsthand.
As our seder concluded


with violinist Angela Amato's
moving interpretation of Yer-
ushaliyim Shel,Zhav, (Jer-
usalem City of Gold), Dayna,
who literally schlepped across
two continents to help make
our Passover happen, em-
braced each of us and re-
minded us never to lose hope.
Two months later Dayna
wrote to tell us that the baby
she was carrying was con-
ceived in Sicily. Dayna said,
"We were so excited to hear
that we were with you all
when we made this 'baby -
we're so proud to be the par-
ents of the youngest member
of the Ner Tamid Sud com-
munity!"
Today we pray for refuah
shleimah, complete recovery
for Dayna and the others who
were so badly injured. We
look forward to the Friday
night when Dayna will once
again sit at her family's Shab-
bat table as her beloved hus-
band Erez recites to her the
words that have meant so
much to Jewish women
throughout the ages.
"A woman of valor, seek
her out!" The blessing con-
cludes with words of praise,
"Rabot banot asu chayil v'at
alit al kulanah." From Seattle
to Italy and back again, Dayna
gives new life to these old
words, which mean, "Many
women have done worthily,
but you surpass them all."

SUN PHOTOS BY JEFF TAVARES, jtavares@venicegondolier.cc
Second-grader Raven Robinson, left, sits with kindergartener Ariana Muniz at Kids Cafe, where 50 children eat a meal each day Monday through Thursday.


Kids Cafe, which runs
August through May, serves
meals to 50 children in Laurel
and snacks to 25 at another
location, four days a week,
according to the LCA Web
site.
In collaboration with Sara-
sota County Parks and Rec-
reation, the LCA runs a sum-
mer camp for 125 low-
income children. It is a no-fee
camp.
"They grow with us and I
grow with them," says
Jefferson.
Success
Most of the teens going
through the TEP have a job
while going to high school,
according to Jefferson. All the
teens that have gone through'
previous TEP programs who
were in high school and
reached their senior year
have graduated. This is a con-
siderable accomplishment in
Florida, ranked in almost all
studies as the worst state in
the nation for graduating
children from high school.
Graduation rates in Florida
range from 54 percent to 61
percent in various studies.
"This particular class right
here (referring to the first TEP
class in the photograph), to
watch them go through and
now watch all of them -
whom I consider adults to
be doing something success-
ful, not on the street, not
involved in any criminal
activity, that I view as a suc-
cess," said Jefferson.
Works in progress
Kayla Totten, 14, and
Lashawnda Anderson, 14, are
works in progress through
the programs of the LCA
including the TEE
Totten has been involved
in the LCA for three years.
She is in ninth grade at
Venice High School.
She spoke highly of her
involvement in the TEP pro-
gram. "I loved it," said Totten.
"Learning about matur-
ing, growing up, body
changes, stuff like that" are
some of the things Totten
says she remembers were
important to her.
Totten says she plans to be
involved with the LCA until
she graduates from VHS.
Then it's on to Manatee
Community College and
after that, "I want to be a
neonatal nurse helping
infants and babies in the ICU
(Intensive Care Unit)," said
Totten.
"Mr, John is great; he's
always there. You can always


count on him. He'll help you
with anything, homework,-
problems at home..." said
Totten.

After graduating from VHS
she plans to attend college.
What then? "Well, right

whether I want to become a
lawyer or go in the medical


lems at home, friend prob-
lems, any kind of problems.
When you need him he's

Anderson.
This young woman also
understands the reality of the
world around her.'


"If you look out in the
neighborhood," said Ander-
son, "everyone doesn't go
somewhere, so I wanted to be
somebody different and go
somewhere with my life."
Totten and Anderson vol-
unteer to work with the
younger children in the
Homework Assistance pro-
gram. - .. -1
On volunteering to work
with the younger children,
Anderson comments, "It's
weird because, like. now I'm
older and I have my nieces
coming here asking me for
help. Just little kids, kids I
don't even know asking me
for help ... It's awesome."'
A graduate
George Gipson, 22, hasn't
been regularly involved with
the LCA for four years.
-There's a good reason for
that.
The child who went
through all the programs at
the LCA, starting in elemen-


tary school, graduated from
VHS in 2002 and is now a
sergeant in the United States
Marine Corps.
Gipson has served one
tour of duty in Afghanistan
and one in Iraq.
Gipson is the brother of
Lashawnda Anderson.
Anderson and Jefferson pro-
vided the information on
Gipson.
Gipson worked in Venice
for a while after graduation
from high school and took
some courses at MCC.
According to Jefferson,
Gipson wanted to attend col-
lege but felt he wasn't ready.
In speaking with Jefferson
at that time, Gipson decided
to join the marines.
Gipson is currently sta-
tioned at Camp Lejeune,
N.C., and is scheduled to be
discharged in November. He
has already secured employ-
ment in Sarasota working in
information technology.
Gipson's attachment to the
LCA continues today, accord-
ing tp Jefferson, "He still
comes back when he's On
leave, he comes back and vol-
unteers and helps out wh'er-
ever he can."
Leadership
Watching John Jefferson
greet 30 elementary school
children as they run from a
school bus toward the front
door of the Sandra Sims Terry
Community Center gives one
an understanding of orga-
nized chaos. .
Jefferson says he uses his
military background to orga-
nize, teach, mentor and com-
fort these children whom he
often refers to as "my kids."
He is relaxed, but clearly a
strong leader and teacher, he
has the,children in the Kids
Cafe sit quietly before their
afternoon meal.
Smiling as he walks two
children down a hallway to
work on their homework,
Jefferson seems to be where
he belongs.
"I'm. really happy doing
what I'm doing and I think
the enjoyment comes from
watching the positive things
happen with the kids ... I've
gotten really attached," said
John Jefferson, the former
Navy Chief turned teacher,
mentor and friend to hun-
dreds of local children.

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Living at the end of a cul
de sac has many ad-
vantages, including a
lack of drive-by traffic and
often, extra privacy.
In the case of a home on
Gange Court in the Jacaranda
area, the back yard is the
biggest bonus of all. Nearly as
far as the eye can see is nature
at its best, a scenic lake and
greenbelt area. While the
house is close to town, it feels
like it is in the country.
Listed with Paradise Realty
top-selling Realtor Ed My-
slivecek, the 1,577-square-


foot home has two bedrooms
and two baths, a formal din-
ing room with a newly in-
stalled wood floor, family
room off the open kitchen
and a laundry list of recent
upgrades and improvements.
The split-plan house was
repiped in 2005. That year the.
house also received a new
roof, the new wood floor, new
carpeting and more. The
exterior had been repainted
just two years earlier and
electrically operated roll-
down shutters were installed
on the lanai. In the kitchen
there is a new microwave and
a new range. Cabinets are
white with wood trim and


matching counters.
An extraelarge comer tub
and separate shower are fea-
tures of the master bath. The
master bedroom also has
French doors, which lead to
the lanai. The present owners
said they often open those
doors and the living room
French doors in the cooler
months, in order to enjoy the
fantastic view, the reason they
bought the house some years
ago.
The inground caged pool is
solar heated.
Just off the extra large two-
car garage is a laundry room
and there is room for a work-
shop or some other use at the


back of the garage.
French doors open the liv-
ing room to the lanai and that
endless view. A small dock is
handy for fishing in the lake
or one can simply sit there,
,enjoying the. sunshine and
the view of both the lake and
the eagle's nest just across the
lake.
Listed for $310,000, the
house can be seen by ap-
pointment. It is located at
1104 Gange Court, off Liesi
Road, which is east of Jaca-
randa Boulevard, a few blocks
west of Center Road. To
schedule an appointment to
see the house, call Myslivecek
at 485-0197 or 488-1-111.
