Rudi Dekkers, five years later


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFFWRITER

Say what you will about
former Huffman Aviation
owner and CEO Rudi Dek-
kers but don't say he is
not a survivor.
Five years after Sept. 11,
2001, Rudi Dekkers, who
owned the Venice flight
school where two Sept. 11
terrorists .learned to fly, is
still very much around.
"I lost everything after
Sept. 11," the affable Dekkers
said in an exclusive print
interview with the Venice
Gondolier Sun. "It destroyed
me emotionally and finan-
cially. I'm selling pools now."
Dekkers also said he
granted an exclusive TV in-
terview to NBC News.
But, Dekkers is optimis-
tic.
"Yes, I would like to go
back into the (aviation) busi-
ness," he said, "but I don't
have any money."
He also is looking forward
to becoming a motivational
speaker.
"I love people," he said.
Dekkers has written a
book, aptly titled, "Tailspin: I
Trained the Terrorists -
How Could I Have Known?"
It is scheduled to be pub-
lished in January.
"The book tells every-
thing," he said. "The title,
'Tailspin,' is my life after
Sepr. 1 ....
Media fame
Dekkers became an over-
night global if controver-
sial media sensation fol-
lowing the Sept. 11 attack.
He was wooed by domes-
tic and foreign media -
literally for months, even
years, and to this day. The
Gondolier Sun recently got a
call from a foreign journalist
in the Netherlands wanting
to know where Dekkers is.
The Gondolier Sun reporter
said he did not know -
which was true, at the time.
Dekkers called the Gondolier
on Friday.
Arguably, Huffman Avia-
tion suffered more than
most small aviation busi-

nesses across the country
after Sept. 11.because it was
there that the two terrorist
ringleaders, Mohamed Atta
and Maiwan al-Shehhi, took
some of their flight training.
The men were at the controls
of the hijacked jetliners that
slammed into the World
Trade Center Twin Towers,
killing thousands of people.
"My flight school busi-
ness fell off by 75 percent,"
Dekkers said in August 2002.
No hard feelings
The question on every-
one's mind is, and always
has been was there any-
thing, in retrospect, that
could have given Dekkers a
clue as to what Atta and al-
Shehhi were really up to.
"I don't know what I could
have done, but I've thought
many times how it was kind
of strange they paid (for the


flight lessons) with a First
Union bank check," Dekkers


said. "Now, what is unusual
is that, well, how is it possible
that those clowns had (do-
mestic) bank accounts?
"They had no Social Se-
curity number. You try open-
ing a bank account without
a Social Security number."
It had been insinuated by
some critics that Dekkers
may have wrongfully filled
out the foreigners' applica-
tions for flight training.
However, months later,
the Immigration and Natura-
lization Service said Dekkers
did nothing wrong.
Dekkers bears no hard
feelings toward the way he
was treated by the U.S.
Government during the
months-long investigation:
He even was called to
testify before Congress in
March 2003.
While Dekkers has gotten
on with his life, he said there
is not a day when he does
not replay the events of five
years ago.
"If I. did not have strong
character," Dekkers said. "I
couldn't have survived Sept.
11 (and the Huffman sale)."
Death threats
Dekkers said he has sur-.
vived not only the emotional
trauma of the Sept. 11 trag-

City council:



four seats,



one race


BY MARY APOSTOLU
STAFF WRITER


As noon came and went.
Friday, only one city council
member of the four whose
terms were
expiring
had a chal-
lenger. ,,I

Zavodnyik,
recently
defeated in
his quest for
the Demo-
cratic nomi- Zavodnyik
nation for
state representative in District
70, filed papers to run for the
city council seat currently
held by John Simmonds.
Mayor Fred Hammett and
council members Vicki Tay-
lor and Jim Woods drew no
opposition.
Zavodnyik,
a native, of
Chicago, has
-l lived in Ven-
ice for three
Years and has
been active
in. civic and
c h u r' ch
Woods groups. Issues
She's passion-
ate about include protecting
the environment from un-
cqntrolled growth; combating
red tide and creating afford-
able, attainable housing.
"A big issue
on the minds
of many is
growth and
develop -
ment," said
Zavodnyik.
" People e
have ap-
proached me,
and feel I am Hammett
-a, ,, :. credible
candi-date for council."
Simmonds was first elect-


ed to city council in 2003. He
serves as ex-officio on the
Airport Advisory Board and
the Committee on Senior
Living.
Before being elected to
council, he served on the
city's Charter Review Com-
mittee, the airport board and
the Police Pension Board. He
also filled out an unexpired
term on council by appoint-
ment in 2000.
A former multi-term may-
or of Winter
Haven, Sim- i'
monds has
lived in Ven-
ice full time
since 1994,
after decades
of owning a
week-end
home here.
"You can Simmonds
expect an
aggressive, well-thought-out
campaign out of me," Sim-
monds said Friday.
Taylor was elected, to
council along with Sim-
-monds in
2 0 0 3 .
Hamm ett
b e c a m e
became
mayor by ap-
pointment
by his fellow
counc il
members
after Dean
Calamaras Taylor
resigned the
position in May. Woods was
appointed to Hammett's seat.
The winner between Sim-
monds and Zavodnyik will
serve a three-year term, as
will Taylor. Hammett and
Woods will serve for a year
and will be eligible to run
again in 2007.

"My uncle told me there
would always be work in
utilities," said Distribution
Superintendent Dave Adi-
nolfi. "People will always
drink water and then have
to use the toilet, so water
and sewer systems will al-
ways be needed. That made
sense to me."
During his high school
days, Adinolfi worked for a
couple of summers at his
uncle's sewer rehabilitation
company in Montgomery,
Ala. The work was hard and
hot, but at the time he
found it both interesting and
challenging.
He now supervises the 20
employees of the distribu-
tion division of the city of
Venice utilities department.

But new technology and
regulatory requirements are
developing every year, and it
is his job to stay on top of
those changes.
Getting his feet wet
In the utilities industry,
there is a distinction be-
tween the pipes that carry
drinking water to the cus-
tomer (distribution), and the
pipes that carry "used water,"
or sewage, back for disposal
and treatment (collection).
Adinolfi has worked in and
supervised crews installing
,and maintaining both types
of operation.
"By 1983, I had worked
for private utilities compan-
ies on Florida's east coast for
over 10 years," he said, "and
was specializing in the re-
habilitation of sewer lines

Terror strikes nation; Bush leaves Sarasota


From the Sept. 12,2001 Gondolier Sun


BY PATRICIA GARLAUSKY HORWELL
NEWS EDITOR

Editor's note: This story won
first place for news story in the
Florida Press Association Better
Newspaper Contest for 2001. It is
reprinted in conjunction with our
coverage of the fifth anniversary
of Sept. 11, 2001.

President George W Bush
was in Sarasota Tuesday to
discuss his fight against illit-


eracy.
He never got to talk about
the subject.
Instead, the president's
remarks concerned the worst
.act of terrorism ever commit-
ted within the United States.
"This is a difficult moment
for America. Two airplanes
have crashed into the World
Trade Center in an apparent
terrorist attack on our coun-
try," Bush told reporters
about a half hour after the


attacks.
Bush arrived at Booker
Elementary early Tuesday
morning, Sept. 11 to listen to
Kay Daniels' second-grade
students read and he was to
address students, parents,
teachers, board members.
and various members of the
Republican Party in the
media center following the
classroom activity.
Before 9 a.m., soon after
Bush began listening to the,
local children read, planes
crashed into the World Trade


Center in New York City. Not
long after the attacks both of
the 110-story buildings col-
lapsed.
The death toll is in the
thousands.
The plane attacks were the
beginning of what was to
become a morning of terror
in both New York and the
Washington, D.C. area. The
nation's capitol was rocked by
a plane that crashed into the
Pentagon, in irginia, and the
evacuation of the White"
I House following a threat.

'Strong women' take four school board seats


State law tossed out, voting drives resume


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH AND SHELLY
DRAPER
STAFF WRITERS

Soon, four of five seats on
the Sarasota County School
Board will be filled bywomen.
"I just think it's an incredi-
bly exciting time for the new
board and the superinten-
dent to join forces and move
student achievement for-
ward," said Carol Todd, an
incumbent who was re-elect-
ed.
Todd was referring to fel-
low new board members
Shirley Brown and Caroline
Zucker, and re-elected in-
cumbent Kathy Kleinlein.
"We are all very strong
women," said Kleinlein, who
garnered 60 percent to repre-
sent the South County dis-
trict, which include schools in
North Port, Venice and (one)
in Englewood. "I have known
Caroline for years. I knew her
before I was on the board."
Zucker, a former school
board member, said the
board members need to have
a planning session and get to
know one another.
"We have different styles,"
Zucker said. "We need to have
a work session to review our
goals and objectives. I am
sure all of us want to do. the
right thing. We must work
together as a strong board."
Todd said one way to move
the new board forward is to
seriously examine career;
education at all school levels
and work on high school
reform.
"Elementary schools have
always done well; however,
our high schools need a shot
in the arm," she said. "Career
education is lagging and I find
it unacceptable. It's time for
the district to get serious and
walk the walk. We have been
doing a lot of talk and making
promises. It's time to follow


through and help student
achievement."
Newcomer
Todd said the board is
composed of individuals with
diverse backgrounds.
"This helps bring a differ-
ent set of eyes from which to
look at the issues we face,"
she said. "I think that's the
strength of a board. I think the
board needs to work with the
superintendent as a united
front."
Despite being the new-
comer to.the Sarasota County
School Board, Brown has
plenty of government experi-
ence. She was Sarasota
County's first woman elected
to the state Legislature, serv-
ing eight years. There, she
helped create Florida
Lottery's Bright Futures
Scholarships. She opposed
using tax dollars for vouchers
to schools that aren't required
to meet the same standards
as public schools.
"There is nothing really
special about professional
women being on school
boards," Brown said. "If you
look at a lot of school districts,,
you.will find that the majority
of people serving are proba-
bly women. I think with the
legislative experience I bring
-to the school board I carn help
bring about a different way of
thinking about the legislative
process, about Tallahassee in
particular."
To the top
Brown expressed a strong
interest in making 'sure
schools that come to! the
,"table disadvantaged aren't


further disadvantaged."
"The best example is that
some more affluent schools
can ask parents to pay for
extras like magazine sub-
scriptions, but other schools
from more economically
challenged areas may not be
in that position," Brown said.
"And where one might be able
to raise $150,000, another
may only be able to raise
$20,000 with the same activi-
ties. I am looking forward to
level the playing field for all
the students and bfing every-
one to the top."
Brown plans to focus on
five areas: restoring voter
confidence, accepting ac-
countability, improving stu-
dent and teacher, perfor-
mances, strengthening ties
with the business community
arid improving classroom dis-
cipline.
She proposes mini-budget
workshops at schools to help
parents, teachers and the
public better understand the
process. Brown also supports
raising teachers' salaries and
integrating more technology.
She supports creating Web
,sites to bring students and
local businesses together for
job opportunities and intern-
ships.
Todd said she is interested
in following through with
ideas generated by the new
board.
"Students need real-
world experiences," she
said. "We need students to
have great mentors and
businesses to step up and
help mold our students for
professional roles in the
community."


A judge has ruled a law hobbling groups holding
voter registration drives is unconstitutional, so
stiff fines for group volunteers' errors cannot be
enforced.


BY RICK BARRY
PELICAN PRESS

A federal judge in Miami
has struck down a Florida law
that made it almost impossi-
ble for civic, union and advo-
cacy groups such as the
League of Women Voters to
register new voters in local
registration drives through-
out the state.
For the first time in 67
years, the League halted its
annual voter registration dri-
ves statewide because the
new law, which became effec-
tive Jan. 1, levied large fines
on individuals who make
mistakes during the drives,
and organization leaders.
If it takes a volunteer more
than 10 days to get a registra-
tion card to the supervisor of
elections, the law assesses a
$250 fine for every late card.
Miss the registration deadline
for that election; the fine is
$500 per card. If a registration
card is lost for any reason,
including a hurricane's
destruction or the death of
the volunteer, the fine is
$5,000 per card under a legal
standard known as "strict lia-
bility."
The law exempts political
parties from its penalties.
Just 16 of the largest fines
would equal the $80,000


annual budget of the League
of Women Voters, a nonparti-
san, largely volunteer organi-
zation, said state President
Diane Wheatley-Gilotti.
Unpaid lawyers from the
Brennan Center for Justice at
NYU School of Law and the
Washington, D.C.-based
Advancement Project are rep-
resenting the League, a
Metro-Dade County coalition
of community organizations,
churches, synagogues,
schools and two union locals
i# the lawsuit.
| Named as defendants were
Florida Secretary of State Sue
Cobb and her elections divi-
sion director, Dawn Roberts.
Cobb said the state would
appeal the ruling.
Chilling
District Judge Patricia A.
Seitz ruled unconstitutional
both the fine schedule and
the use of strict liability stan-
dard as "chilling" to the civil
rights on the organizations
seeking to bolster their clout,
or just increase the public's
election participation, and
issued an injunction blocking
its enforcement.
"While the court is
extremely reluctant to set
aside an enactment of the
legislature," Seitz wrote,
"given the magnitude of


defendants' First Amend-
ment freedoms at stake in this
case, the ... law's civil penal-
ties and exclusion of political
parties is unconstitutional."
The case will ultimately be*
set for trial, after a federal
appeals court rules on Seitz's
injunction.
"What it means is that we
can get back to doing voter
registration drives in Florida
again," said Wheatley-Gilotti.
"Our people can start attend-
ing community events again,
bringing the registration
process to the places where
people congregate," without
fear of government reprisal.
But now there are only five
weeks left until they close the
rolls for the Nov. 7 general
election.
Volunteer lawyer Gary
Rosen of Fort Lauderdale said
the ruling "sends a.message to
legislators in Florida and
other states that they should
applaud civic groups like the
League of Women Voters -
not penalize them for tire-
lessly working to strengthen
our democracy."

edy, but numerous death
threats and at least one
documented attempt on his
life.
Dekkers. commuted from
his home near Naples to his
Venice office by flying his
own airplanes back and forth.
In late January 2003, Dek- near^ -""
kers, a veteran pilot with
thousands of hours, was on
his way up to Venice in his ,
helicopter to sign papers
selling Huffman to Triple
Diamond. -... ,B -
There was one unsched- 4 -
uled stop along the way.
Dekkers crashed his 1972
FH-1100 helicopter into an
ice-cold Caloosahatchee Riv-
er.


A friend and fellow chop-
per pilot pulled the freezing
Dekkers from the river, drag-
ging him to shore as he
clung with, both hands to
the chopper's skids.
He said he was supposed
to be in Venice at 10 a.m. He
was here at 3 p.m. to close
the deal.
Whodunnit?
Was the chopper crash
an accident? Dekkers doesn't
think so.
"Somebody tried to kill
me, it was an attack on my
life," Dekkers said. "The fuel
line was loose and a safety
line (to the fuel pump) was
cut. The feds (Federal Avia-
tion Administration investi-
gators) took the chopper
and said, 'Rudi, you had no
fuel and we're gonna pull
your license.'"
Dekkers said he had fuel
but couldn't prove it. Dekkers
talked to the manufacturer,
who verified 2 gallons of fuel,
even if the gauge read empty.
FAA investigators finally told
Dekkers he was right.
"No fuel means something
happened," Dekkers said.
Dekkers said the helicopter
had been kept in an unse-
cured area of a Fort Myers
a airport.

Five years after Sept. 11, anyone can walk into the old Huffman Aviation building.at the airport,
push open the unlocked glass doors and get on the field with the airplanes.


He said he has no idea
who tried to kill him.
Security today
.HoW secure is the airport
today? Not very, Dekkers
claims.
"I was up there last week
and went into the old (Huff-
man Aviation) building
where the (Cockpit) cafe is.
You go in the front and right
out the back onto the ramp,"
Dekkers said. "Nobody said
anything to me."
A Gondolier Sun photog-
rapher could have walked
the same path as Dekkers.
All the doors were unlocked
on a recent visit and there
did not appear to be anyone
in the building
Dekkers said it is possible,
but not likely, that another
Sept. 11 incident could hap-
pen with a commercial air-
liner because of security
measures.

Profiling
No security measure cre-.
ates more debate than pro-
filing singling out people
based on the way they look,
their ethnicity, colbr, religion,

Dekkers said he is ab-
solutely for profiling.
He believes in the 80-20
rule.
"If 80 percent are giving


you 20 percent of the trou-
ble, you can deal with that.
But if 20 percent of the peo-
ple are giving you 80
percent of the problems, the
20 percent ought to be

using the newest television
inspection and maintenance
equipment.
"When my oldest son
started high school in Fort
Lauderdale," said Adinolfi,
"we found the school sys-
tem there had many prob-
lems. The stories we heard
about drugs and violence
made us want to find some-
thing better and relocate as
soon as possible.
"A friend of mine was
doing consulting work in
Venice," he said, "and en-
couraged us to take a look at
that area. He told me the city
had just purchased a new
TV truck and sewer-cleaning
equipment, but had no one
who knew how to run it.
"I brought my family over
on a weekend to look at the
community," he said, "and
we immediately knew this is
where we wanted to be. I
called then-Utilities Director
John Lane to ask about
working for the city, and he
agreed to interview me that
Sunday. A few days later, I
got call from the personnel
director offering me the job
of collection foreman. That
was November 1983, and
we've never regretted the
decision.
"I started with just a two-
man crew," he said. "I trained
them to use the new equip-
ment, and we began to in-
spect, unblock and repair
sewer lines all over town.
That first year, we were able
to correct at least 100,000
gallons of infiltration into
the sewer system by repair-
ing cracked and broken pipes.
"In 1987," he said, "I was
promoted to distribution and


collection supervisor, and
began to get my feet wet in
the water side of things.
That was when I began to
cross-train some of the other
employees so they could
help out in any emergency
that arose. That created
greater efficiency for the city,
and it also gave the employ-
ees more flexibility and po-
tential for advancement."
In 1989, another promo-
tion brought his title to dis-
tribution and collection
superintendent.
Education
"Our employees deal every
day with the health, safety
and welfare of the public,"
said Adinolfi. "Many of them
have voluntarily taken spe-
cial classes and gotten certi-
fied by the FWPCOA (Florida
Water and Pollution Control
Association) as distribution
technicians. It starts with a
'C' certification and works
up to an 'A,' which is the
certification I have in both
water and sewer.
"The Florida Department
of Environmental Protec-
tion," he said, "is drafting
legislation which would
make licensing mandatory
- that will probably be
implemented in the next
year or two. We are encour-
aging all our employees to
get certified before the law
passes, while it is still easy to
get enrolled in the schools.
"The reason the educa-
tion is so important," he ex-.
plained, "is to assure that
everyone on the crew under-
stands the potential for

contamination of the water
supply and how to prevent
it. For example, whenever
there is a break in the water
line, pressure in the system
is reduced to some degree.
"Whenever there is a
water-line break," he said,
"we have to isolate it as
much as possible by shutting
down valves on either side of
it to assure a minimal disrup-
tion of service. We get a crew
in as soon as possible to exca-
vate the area, pump down the
water that's there, and repair
the pipe.
"At the same time," he
said, "we notify the county
health department, and
begin notifying affected resi-
dences and businesses of the
disruption with a precaution-
ary boil water order. We send
employees door-to-door with
written notices to hang on
doors, and we also use radio,
television and local news-
papers to get the word out.
"The initial, precautionary
order issued by the city sim-
ply advises that, once service
is restored, those most at risk
the very young and those
with weakened immune sys-
tems would be wise to boil
the water before ingesting it."
"Once the repair has been
completed," said Adinolfi,
"we systematically flush out
the section of the system
which had been shut down in
order to remove any impuri-
ties. Then, before the boil
order can be lifted, we are
required to submit a series of
water samples drawn by
the licensed operators in the
water department to the
health department for testing
by an independent laborato-
ry, until they are satisfied the
water is safe for consump-
tion. Normally, that process
takes about 72 hours.
"If they were to find conta-
mination of some kind," he
said, "the health department
would then issue a mandato-
ry boil order to all affected
customers. They would also

rechlorination of affected

time, until all water samples
were found to be completely
safe."
Reading material
"We also manage the
meter reading operation for
the water department," he
said. "We have begun the
process of converting from
the old manually-read met-
ers to new meters which
transmit a radio signal that
the reader can pick up with-
out having to go in every-
one's back yard. We are at
about 20 percent completion
of that project.
"We've always had trouble
with the meter readers being

tently letting dogs loose," he
said, "and also with fences
and locked gates making the
meter inaccessible or diffi-
cult to access. Then there is
sometimes a problem with
just going onto someone's
property some people are
uncomfortable with that.
"With the new system," he
explained, "the meter can be
read very quickly and accu-
rately from the street. In fact,
we expect that one person
could read all the meters in
one day if all the equipment
is working properly.
"Although we will be able
to reduce .the number of
meter readers once that sys-
tem is in place," said Adinolfi,
"no one will lose their job.
With the growing demand for
services, we will always be
able to offer them reclassifi-
cations and transfers to posi-
tions elsewhere in the ope-
ration."
"I have a great bunch of
employees," he said, "from
the guys out on the crews to

OUR VIEW




Insurance crisis may call for radical action


E everyone knows that home insurance
rates in Florida are going through the
roof blue-tarped roofs at that. And
most people know it isn't just homeowners
who are caught in the pinch. Business own-
ers, local governments and school districts
are also dealing with skyrocketing insurance
premiums.
We'd like to suggest a solution.
Right now, insurance companies have
limits on how much money they can hold
onto, or invest. If the premiums they collect
exceed that limit after overhead, of
course -- they are penalized by paying
taxes on the extra money.
Our possible solution has a twofold ap-
proach.
First, we should allow insurance compa-
nies to save more of those excess profits for


a rainy day without the fear. of paying
taxes on the money. The reserve fund, of
course, would have to have some reason-
able limits otherwise insurance compa-
nies would be tempted to shelter 'every
penny they make and turn the pot.into a
huge slush fund.
So, if we give insurance companies a
green light to put more funds in reserve,
how do we make sure they have extra
money especially enough to cover a
catastrophe like Hurricane Katrina or
Hurricane Charley?
We simply add a surcharge say $100
- to each policy in the country. That's
right, every insurance policyholder pays a
little extra to make sure we can cover huge
catastrophic losses.
Not fair, you might say. Why should a


homeowner in Maine or Idaho pay to cover
losses from hurricanes in Florida or South
Carolina?
Well, how about forest fires in the West?
How about floods in the East? How about
tornadoes in the Midwest? Every place in
the country has the potential to be hard hit
by a catastrophe.
Granted, there are few calamities to
equal Hurricane Katrina. Nevertheless, the
peace of mind to know that whatever hap-
pens, insurance companies can pay for the
damage not go out of business claiming
bankruptcy has to be worth something.
Finally, we should make any special
legislation allowing the emergency fund to
be collected contingent on insurance com-
panies not ratcheting up their rates after
each catastrophe. Rather we should assess


how much each catastrophe costs, how
much is left in the emergency fund and
what type of dividends insurance compan-
ies derive from those assets.
And, perhaps we should acknowledge
the obvious dangers of building million-
dollar homes on the beach, or on slippery
hilltops in California, and assess those
homeowners a little extra for the privilege
to live in such precarious environments?
The plan might be a hard sell in some
parts of the country. However, we believe
insurance companies would warm to the
idea they can collect and save funds tax
free. And the idea should certainly play
well in coastal communities or some parts
of the country hard hit by flooding and
forest fires this year.
It is an idea worth discussion.


It's over (sort of)


BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER


After weeks and weeks of
our being bombarded with
flyers and phone calls and
polls, finally the harassment
is over at least until the
general election.
I think Primary Day was
a sad day for our community
and country. It proved that
being rich not talent or
values is what it takes to
win office.
The sadness comes from
the fact that we as a country
don't even care. Only 25 per-
cent of the registered voters,
let alone the population,
showed up and wanted to
make a difference. The rest
must not care or don't want
to work at being informed.
Apathy is dangerous.
I mentioned that when in
Sweden I found that their
local elections like this one
get 80 percent turnout. Like
so many other places, they
recognize that the ability to
be able to help choose the
people who represent youjis
a great honor, an important
and wonderful right many
people don't have.
We take it for granted.
Some that don't vote say
they are tired of the ava-
lanche of negative propa-
ganda. People feel that their
privacy was being invaded
when they including me
- didn't want it invaded.
Yet apathy only perpetu-
ates the awful process.
I guess we should be
proud that we had the most
expensive congressional race
in the country, with more
than $6 million spent so far.,
We had the most expensive
house race in the state,
thanks to Doug Holder.
As usual, it was ugly -
worse than normal. It is sad
when people resort to that
stuff.
Tramm Hudson calling
Vem Buchanan a tax cheat is
just sleazy when in fact Vemn
did pay his taxes after con-
testing them. Thank good-
ness Tram wasn't rewarded
for that behavior.
Of course, Vern had about
$4 million to invest and
counter some of the negative
stuff as well as put out his
own negative campaign.
Nancy Detert did very well
as an alternative to those
antics.
David Mills said, maybe
in jest, that his opponent
had an unsavory past. There


was no foundation I ever saw
to that claim, and luckily we
did not reward him either.
Then over the last weekend
Laura Benson came out with
vicious negative material of
her own against him.
Carol Todd got re-elected
even though she said ,she
wasn't going to run and she
changed her mind about an
interview with the Gondolier
Sun. I was more upset that
we would put back into of-
fice someone who misled her
fellow board members and
the public about her inten-
tions to run again and, more
important, was in charge of
the school board.and did not
question the discrepancies
'in the enrollment numbers
reported last fall, resulting in
the cutting of a lot of jobs.
There should be some
accountability.
Maybe the most disap-
pointing race was the house
primary won by Holder. Here
is a candidate who came to
town only a year ago. He
brought hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars in to run a
campaign for an office that
pays a small fraction of that
amount.
He used the worst litera-
ture I saw in any race, call-
ing Rory Dubin a liar even
though he did not say what
he lied about. He then ran
TV commercials that were
very harsh about Rory's at-
tendance at county charter
review board meetings even
though he only missed three
meetings in four years. Every
elected official misses votes
every one.
The sad thing was that
Holder opted not to partici-
pate in a lot of the forums. It
is understandable, since he
did a poor job at the ones
he did go to. He didn't know
the issues.
He had his wife make
one of those campaign
phone calls to tell us that his
family had lived in this area
for 30 years. That gave you
the impression he had lived
here for a long time when
he really has lived here for
only one year, maybe just so
he could run for office. I
heard that his family or
extended family has been
coming here for vacations
for a long time, maybe at a
timeshare.
But what matters to all of
us is how strong he would be
representing us, since that is
what it is all about. He was
terribly weak on the issues.
He had no knowledge of the
specific things important to
South County or, for that
matter, the county as a whole.
Some day I hope that
there is a procedure where-
by political material before it
is mailed or run on TV or in
newspapers is screened for
accuracy and ethics. Since

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Don't let all the Mayberry wear off


Editor:
Venetians compose a small portion of Sarasota County.
We feud over insignificant matters and complain when larg-
er entities invade our bit of space.
The truth is, if we do not join together to battle red tide,
unsustainable development and doomsayers who perpetu-
ate rumors, then we shall surely compromise tourism while
sanctuaries are created for those who can afford to be here
only when Mother Nature is most agreeable.
Local governments, whether or not they possess a beach
or two, must preserve the rights of the locals while enticing
and comforting money-spreading visitors. "Preserve and
enhance" should be the whole of the law, especially as
Venice is on the list to become "historical."
I chose to move to Venice rather than maintain beach-
front Point of Rocks property on Siesta Key because of the
radical changes brought about by those owners on Siesta to
whom greed meant more than history.
Since I've been in Venice, I have neitnother rented any
portion of my single-family dwelling to carpetbaggers or
scalawags, although I have been approached thrice, at my
front door no less, with queries as to the price I'm willing
to take for my BLE house.
Hey until the Mayberry wears completely off of this
town, I'm staying' put!

Americans
are fickle

Editor:
I don't want to start a let-
ter war, but I would be re-
miss if I did not answer Mr.
Lawler's letter, Vote based on
flimsy data.
I believe Mr. Lawler is
politically motivated and has
missed the point I was mak-
ing. He says that 60 percent
of the people think this war
is wrong. But if you go back
to Sept. 12,2001, 85 percent
of the people polled thought
we must go to war, and this
is the point I was trying to


make.
When we are threatened
we are ready to go to war and
ready to -send our soldiers
off to fight. When we no
longer feel threatened, we
are against the war. The sol-
dier is still committed to the
defense and left hanging out
to dry.
I'm sorry, but you are
mistaken about Mr. Murtha's
comments. He lumped all
soldiers into his accusations
of "cold-blooded murderers"
and I resent that, being a
retired career soldier. Mr.
Murtha should be ashamed
of his comments, especially


since he, too, was career mili-
tary. He must have forgotten
what "Semper Fi" means.
I also think it is much bet-
ter to fight our enemies in
Iraq than in America, and we
are also in place to counter
Iran from our vantage in
Iraq and that is probably the
reason there is so much re-
sistance in Iraq.
Maybe we should bring
all of our military home and
fight here so Americans can
see what war is really like.
Ken Aubrey
Venice
A huge bill is
coming due

Editor:
Does our president have
no shame? During an inter-
view, when asked why the
American people are not
asked to make sacrifices for
the war in Iraq, the president
said, "They are paying higher
taxes." Up till now all we
have heard from this admin-
istration is how they have cut
taxes and want to cut taxes
more.
Yes, some people are
making a great deal of sacri-
fices for this war. The per-
sonnel and families of the
2,638 and increasing
every day --who have been
killed. The personnel and
families of the 19,323 and
increasing every day who
have been wounded, 8,991
of that number and
increasing every day with
horrible wounds. The mem-


bers of the military and their
families who have been
forced to extend their tours of
duty because the administra-
tion will not call for a draft.
A draft, with no defer-
ments, will give all the war
hawks the ones who can't
seem to find the recruiting
centers a chance to walk
the walk. We know they can
talk the talk.
Our grandchildren will pay
the bill for a war that has cost
more than $310 billion and is
increasing at the rate of $6 bil-
lion to $9 billion per month-
all on borrowed money.
Alphonse DeFilippo
Englewood
Gosh, can you
really afford it?
Editor:
Gee, thanks.
I suppose we ought to be
grateful that our county
commissioners decided to
cut property tax rates by 9.8
percent. However, a saving
of $30 on a $300,000 house
just doesn't seem satisfying.
Why did the commission-
ers have to fund acquisition
of coastal property and rec-
reational trails to the tune of
$7 million? And I'm sure
there are other pet rocks in
the budget that have soaked
up the surplus.
I don't know about every-
body else in Sarasota Coun-
ty, but I am having trouble
making ends meet as the'
cost of living here skyrockets.

Reporter's visit was an



unforgettable experience


EDITOR'S NOTE: The column
printed below won first place for
local coverage of terrorism the
Florida Press Club for 2001. It is
reprinted in conjunction with our
coverage of the fifth anniversary
of the events of Sept. 11,2001.

BY PAT HORWELL
NEWS EDITOR

This morning I sat in a
room full of reporters and
news photographers, ready
and waiting to cover Pres-
ident George W Bush's visit
to Sarasota.
Politics aside, there is
something very special
about the visit of a presi-
dent. The pomp and circum-
stance as well as the prep-
aration surrounding such an
event are incredible.
Emma E. Booker Elemen-
tary School was a sea of
freshly scrubbed, smiling
children's faces. The kids, the
parents, school and district
staff members and more
were anxiously awaiting the
event.
Even among the local
media, whose members tend
to be smug about these
kinds of happenings, the air
was fresh with excitement.
Although many of us have
covered national political
events before, it isn't part of
our daily routine. I have cov-
ered vice presidential visits


before, both here and years
ago in New York. But I never
covered a president's visit.
I was sitting in my seat at
about 9 a.m., waiting (maybe
not so patiently, because I
crawled out of bed at 4 a.m.
for this assignment) for the
president to make a showing,
when I heard a reporter right
behind me talking on his cell
phone.
"A plane has crashed into
the World Trade Center?" he
asked. Then he added, "Wait,
two planes have crashed
into the World Trade Center?"
"How could this be?" I
heard someone else ask.
I became part of the rush
of reporters and photogra-
phers who stampeded the
TV room in Booker's media
center to watch the national
coverage of what was hap-
pening.
We're news people. Noth-
ing shakes us. That's what
so many of our readers
think.
Oh, how wrong they are.
If you had been there
with us, you would have
heard our shrieks and gasps.
You would have seen our
eyes some staring wildly
in disbelief, others red and
welled with tears.
You too would have want-
ed to pick up the nearest
phone and call your family
members wherever they


were.
You would have seen that
we felt the same horror and
violation that you did as you
watched from your TV at
home, at work or anyplace
else.
You would have thought,
as we did, about those thou-
sands of people whose lives
were snuffed out in a flash.
But, we all did our jobs.
It's what we are trained to
do.
And after I took my notes
and called my office, all I
wanted to do was reel in my
young ones (all grown men)
and hold them close to keep
them safe from harm.
I was so worried about
them one in NewYork, one
on the road from Georgia to
Philadelphia, and one still in
college on Florida's Space
Coast and really couldn't
think straight until I knew
they were safe.
How lucky my family is
- we all are OK.
So many others are not.
And so many others just
don't know.
My prayers go out to them
in this time of sadness and
uncertainty.
Today I heard someone
say that life as we knew it
has changed. I think it al-
ready had.
We just forgot until Tues-
day morning.


VEDDER fom Page 6A


all of these people took a
pledge of fairness, maybe
the parties need to be the
screeners of the ads.
We really should improve
our turnout by putting vot-
ing on Sunday, as in other
countries maybe even the
whole weekend.
I'd like to see a lot of elec-
tion law changes but doubt
that they can be made since
those who are elected don't
want to fix a system that
puts them in office.
Maybe we will show that
we don't appreciate or want
the negative campaigns in
November.
******

By's Crack
A candidate said his
opponent has a very point-
blank approach to the
issues: "Every time I point
to an issue, he looks blank."


People in this community
never fail to amaze me with
how they give. Take Ed and
Larry Dinka, who on their
own on a recent weekend
painted the entire Letson
Stadium used by Pop Warner
football at the Wellfield. It is
really nice.

The county and city are
once again embroiled in a
contest over growth. The
county is rushing to amend
the charter to require cities
to keep the comp plan zoning


designated by the county
should the city annex the
land, unless the city and the
county agree to a change.
Everyone is crying foul that
this has' been sprung on
them at the last minute
without ever discussing it
between the parties.
It certainly is being rushed,
which no one likes (except
maybe the county). On the
other hand, it isn't like the
problem of planning has not
been discussed a lot in the
last seven years. The cities
and county have talked
about joint planning agree-
ments but they just never
have made them happen -
usually because the cities
don't vote favorably or, in
Venice's case, even vote on
one.
: The county, in my opin-
ion, is right in trying to
address this important issue.
The cities, I'd guess, like it the
way it is. But the county's
timing and the manner in
which it has gone about
considering the change just
stinks.
There are three versions of
,the, proposal. Acceptability,
from my standpoint, depends
on which one is used.

Today's Ism: If we quit vot-
ing, will they go away?
******
There is a move afoot to
fly the American flag on
Monday to commemorate
the fifth anniversary of Sept.


11 and honor those who lost
their lives enjoying our free-
doms.

I am proposing a tax for
every political sign that is
erected. Maybe $25 for each
small one and $50 for a large
one, and a $500 fine for
ones not taken down in 10
days.
If we've got to put up with
them, we may as well get
some money to do good for
our communities.

The work on the park next
to the Venice Little Theatre is
to start any day. That will
really be a nice addition to
the city and the entrance to
the island.

You may remember the
citizens of Venice voted to
give council members and
mayor a huge increase in
pay a couple of years 'ago. I
supported the long-overdue
increase.
One of the selling points
to the public was that we
would attract a high level of
talent and get more applica-
tions. When the qualifying
period closed at noon Friday,
one candidate had filed.
There were four open posi-
tions.

Bumper sticker: Being
good gets you stuff.

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.
To simplify our process, there is no income verification; you simply state your
income.

1.00% is not your note rate but is a numerical percentage used to calculate your actual payment amount. For example, a $100,000 loan has a payment
of $253.00. The actual note rate would be an ARM @ 7.3% with an APR of 7.5%. Your principal balance may increase. Rates and terms are subject to
change. Equity, credit and other restrictions will apply. Not all applicants will be approved. 2006 ENGLEWOOD EQUITY GROUP, INC.

LET 'EM HAVE IT! IS AIR TRAVEL NOW SAFER T1'l I"

Voters caught in the cross-fire


Big muddy. In all my years of reading the paper, listening
to the radio and TV I'm 72 years old I've never heard or
seen such a mud-slinging campaign going on right now
between some of these candidates. It is disgraceful. I don't
think we should have to listen to their ads. Your mailboxes
are stuffed with their stuff. I don't even bring it into my
house. I put it in my recycling bin in the garage. I've never
seen or heard anything like this. And they
want to lead us? I'm sorry. Where are their moral characters
and their backbone to say what is, right and wrong? You
don't pull people through the mud and say things that are
not true. You have to back it up. They're spending thousands
of dollars sending out things that have no name on it. It's
disgraceful. I cannot believe it is happening. My friends are
so disgusted, they're not even going to vote. That's not going
to solve the problem, but they're turning people off.


Common sense. I couldn't
help but call in on the picture
in your paper showing two
Venice police officers stand-
ing by their marked patrol
cars while in full uniform. Did
they expect the escapee to
walk by and pretend they
weren't there? Bad police
work, Venice PD. They should
have had their patrol cars
concealed as well as them-
selves too. Who caught the
criminal? An off-duty police
officer in his unmarked family
car. The escapee had no idea
there was a police officer in
that vehicle, which made it
easy for the apprehension.
Chief, you have your work cut
out for you in training your
officers and superior officers.
Accreditation does not catch
criminals, but common sense
does. Common-sense police
work goes a long way. Also,
who decided to put yellow
tags on all unmarked police
cars throughout the state of
Florida?) One would never
know they were police cars.
They should have ordinary
plates like all the other citi-
zens. Would be nice if that
could be changed also.
Going private? I'm calling
in response to "School district
staff to research field trip
issues." I'm just wondering if
this is the way the school


board is trying to bring
about privatization of the
transportation department.
Maybe in their workshops
they ought to look at where
the buses are going instead of
the field trip situation so that
the buses could be freed up
for field trips. My other ques-
tion is, if the art department
buys these buses, who will be
driving them? Who will scruti-
nize them? Who will they
work for? Will they work for
the art department or will
they work for the school
board, because they might be
someone off the street that we
do not want our children
around. So, I'm just con-
cerned why they want pri-
vatization of school buses,
That's the way if reads for me.
Shut it down. Sarasota
County recently spent over $6
million for a 1.8-acre property
next to Turtle Beach on Siesta
Key. It has been an RV trailer
park for 33 years. The county
is continuing to run it as an
RV trailer park. This is outra-
geous. It already was an RV
park. There was no need to
spend county money to pur-
chase the property if the
county is not going to open
it up for all Sarasota County
residents. As it stands, the
property contains less than
50 RV spaces that are mostly

There is no lodging shortage
near the beach. The Gulf
Breeze RV property would
not add anything to the
county if continued as an RV
park. The county has plenty
of places for people to stay.
The county would benefit
with additional places for
children to play and families
to go for wholesome activi-
ties. Turtle Beach could be a
great beach that 'allows pub-
lic access and would keep
Sarasota County as a place
known for its beautiful
beaches. Maintaining the RV
park would not do anything
to enhance the county. This
park should be used to help
encourage the public to value
native species and habitats.
It is a wonderful asset that's
not being cultivated for edu-
cation. Sarasota County
should not allow this park to
run as an RV park, and it
should be open to all Sara-
sota County residents.
Your response? I do not
knowEd Martin. I've never met
him, but I sure am glad we
have people like him living in
this town. In a recent edition of
this paper, he laid out a seven-
point discussion on reasonable
heights of buildings and use of
land in downtown Venice. I
think it would be wonderful if
those who are in favor of radi-
cally changing downtown
would sit down and write area-
soned, point-by-point rebuttal
of his comments. I do not
mean a personal attack on Mr.
Martin; they should give rather
detailed reasons of why the
character of Venice should be
changed. The people who
advocate change have good
legal staff and people on their
own staff who should be able
to fairly present their, side of
this discussion. The people of
Venice are entitled to such
information, if those who are:
in favor of radical change can
produce such information. To
attack this man as to where he
spends his time, where he goes
on vacation, calling him a
Communist and other snide
remarks, adds nothing to the
discussion. Let's have those
who are in favor of change
write a detailed plan for what
they think Venice should look
like.

M any banks claim to be community banks, but
The Bank of Venice is one of the only genuine,
hometown-based community banks in Venice. That's
one reason local attorney Jim Titus banks with us.
He likes the fact that we call him by name and view

We're committed to his success-a fact that's

The wildlife

near my house

Today, we will review the
wide variety of wildlife that I
have seen in the last 20 years
iin Florida. Let's start with the
East Venice Avenue area. Here
is a list of animals that I have
seen in my neighborhood
.since 2000.
Coyote .(when we first
moved in before the area was
Developedd, bobcats, squirrels,
raccoons, alligators, several
kinds of turtles, snakes (several
,species), lizards (green, about a
.two-foot body), a possible
Florida panther (we saw tracks
That seemed to be too large to
Sbe from a bobcat).
Just the other day, I saw my
first roseate spoonbill. I've
seen them at Ding Darling in
SSanibel, but never before in
my backyard. Ibis, blue
herons, night herons, great

RUNNERS. -
Another strong runner from
last year's team Wade
Consul didn't come out
this year.
North Port's James Gran-
tham won the boys race in
17:36, Riverview also won boys
team points, making it a sweep.

white egrets, cattle egrets,
kingfisher, wood storks,
anhingas, moorhens, peli-
cans, sea gulls and many
more.
Not to forget the master
predator, the alligator. I've
seen many sandhill cranes in
my general area, but not in
my backyard.
I lived on the beach for five,
years. The list goes on and on
with birds -sandpipers,
sanderlings, plovers, more
Ibis, cormorants, more sea
gulls, terns, pelicans, and
many more.
One of nature's..amazing
sights is to watch the Ibis put
their elongated beak in the
surf. They swish it around
until they feel the vibration of
a sand flea. Many times they
lead me to the fleas.
I think I was inspired to
write about these creatures by
the sudden death of Steve
Irwin (The Crocodile Hu ter).
It made me reflect about how
fortunate we are to live
amongst all of these wonder-
ful creatures.
Hopefully next week we
can talk about fishing again -
especially if the RT/P goes
away. We'll talk again fellow
Sheepsheadites.

FIGHT from page 10A


Venice used eight plays to
score the go-ahead TD. Big
plays in the drive were a 10-
yard pass from Hunek to
Laurie, a 16-yard run by
Mitchell and a one-yard TD
sneak on fourth down. The
snap was bad on the extra
point try, but Venice clung to
a 16-14 lead.
.That all changed in less
than a minute and a half, as
Pace's explosive "O" struck
again. Back Adrian Bushell
slipped several tackles and
danced for a 58-yard TD run
that put the Spartans up for
good at 21-16.
Pace padded the lead in
the fourth quarter.. The
Spartans got the ball on the
Indian 43 after recovering a
tumble. Von Thomas came in
to quarterback and kept the
ball for a 27 yard-gain to the
18. On the next play, Willie
leter went in, and Pace had a
comfortable 28-16 pad with
4:44 remaining.
Hunek, a junior who was
making his first start of the
season, was intercepted on
Venice's next drive. Pace
decided to kill the clock. The


Spartans were forced to punt.
The only problem was, the
snap sailed over the punter's
head. The ball rolled all the
way back to the 2-yard line,
where Venice took over.
Laurie caught a 1-yard TD
pass from Hunek with 29 sec-
onds to go. Shipps' conver-
sion made it 28-23.
Venice tried the onside
kick, but Pace recovered and
was able to successfully kill
off the final ticks on the clock.

/ The 1
condition known as
3 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.

Tomorrow, Sept. 11, will
be the fifth anniversary of
the terrorist attack on the
United States.
As the world learned
within hours of the tragedy,
Sarasota and Venice were
tied to the event in two very
different ways. President
George W. Bush was in Sara-
sota, and three of the four
terrorist pilots trained at the
Venice Municipal Airport.
Venice Gondolier Sun
news editor Pat Horwell/and
photographer Nick Baker
were at Emma E. Booker
Elementary School in Sara-
sota, with Bush, who was
there to promote an educa-
tion bill by reading to chil-
dren. Shortly after 9 a.m., an
aide whispered the news of
the first plane hitting one of
the twin towers, and Baker
shot an award-winning
photo of the president. Hor-
well also won an award for
her first-person account of
what it was like to be in that
room as the president of the
United States was informed
about the attack. (Baker's
photo is reprinted on this
page. A reprint of Horwell's
article is on Page 2 of the A
section of today's Venice
Gondolier Sun.)
In the ensuing days, the
world learned that the two
pilots who flew into the tow-
ers, had trained in Venice,.
living in rented houses and
apartments, eating at local
restaurants and taking their
dry cleaning to the Venetian.
Cleaners. Instead of seam-
lessly blending in, it seems
they created controversy
wherever they went.
"He (Mohammed Atta)
took his cleaning to our No-
komis store," Venetian
Cleaners General Manager
Don Byam said. "Weeks be-
fore it happened, the girl

aide that an airliner flew into the World Trade Center in New York City.


there told me about 'these
strange guys.' There were
uncooperative. We have to
get addresses and phone'
numbers when people leave
things. Atta finally did leave
his cell phone number. I
called the-FBI with it after
Sept. 11."
Staff reporter Tommy Mc-
Intyre wrote story after story
about Rudi Dekkers, who
operated a flight school at
Huffman Aviation. Moham-
med Atta, then 32, and
Marwan al-Shehhi, 22, came
to Venice in July of 2000, cash
in hand to learn to fly.
Huffman's bookkeeper,
Charlie Voss, and his wife,
Dru, were among several
landlords who rented rooms
or apartments to the men
while they were in this area.
Several landlords, including
the Vosses, asked them to
move on. At one point the
terrorists lived with a fire-
man in Nokomis, probably
visiting the cleaner during
that time period.
A third terrorist, Ziad Jar-
rah, also trained at the
Venice flight school, arriving
a few weeks before the other
two according.to the govern-
ment-issued report, "The
National Commission on
Terrorist Attacks Upon the
United -States." Jarrah was
the terrorist who flew the
fourth plane into the ground
in Pennsylvania. Atta flew
into the first tower and al-
Shehhi into the second
tower. After earning their
commercial pilot licenses
that December, the terrorists
leftVenice to go to the Miami
area where they trained in a
Boeing 727 flight simulator,
developing the skills they
needed to fly into their tar-
gets. The three Venice-train-
ed pilots were part of a group
of 19 terrorists involved in
the plot, which was the sub-

Rudi Dekkers, president of Huffman Aviation in 2001, was
interviewed by reporters from around the world when word
got out that the terrorists who flew the planes into the twin
towers trained at Huffman Aviation in Venice.


Shortly after Sept. 11, 2001, this sign was hung at PGT
Industries in Venice.

Dru and Charles Voss of Venice learned after the fact that
they had rented a room to the pilots of the two planes that
flew into the Trade Center in New York City on Sept. 11,
2001.

GUESTWRITER
We searched the world-
wide Web to find a list of the
most popular sports in the
world. There are lots of Web
sites claiming to have ans-
Swers, but most raised so
many questions we're still
scratching our head. Do we
mean spectators or just those
who participate: Professional
sports? Amateur sports? Most
played? Most watched, Most
televised? Team sorts? Indoor
sports? Outdoor sports? Indi-
vidual sports? Sports for men?
Sports for women? Sports for
children? Olympic Sports?
One site, which claimed to
be "the final word" placed
Badminton in the fifth slot,
right after Soccer, which
.trailed Volleyball, Basketball
S and Table Tennis. Baseball
made it into the top ten, just
edging out Dragon Boat
Racing, Team Handball and
Hockey. lWon't Barry Bonds
and "Zizou" Zidane be sur-
prised at that?' NFL Football
didn't even make it into the
top fifteen. Bocce bowling
and Cricket, did, but just
barely.
Albert Adler and I, origina-
tors of the online Write Lim-
ericks Win Cash contest
S at limerickcontest.com, have
come across a contestant in
the August limerick competi-
tion who has identified the
Number One sport in the
world and she has irrefutable
figures to back it up.
The August subject:
SPORTS, drew a wide variety
of favorites, including fox
hunting, golf, soccer, hockey,
cricket, wrestling, bicycle rac-
ing and Little League base-
ball. We'll let you read the lim-
erick on the number one
sport, written by M y E.


Moore, of Gladwyne, Pa., and
you can make up your own
mind, based on your own
personal experience:
Some are champs on the
diamond or court, A i
On the course, or on fields, & g
of some sort.
But I am no slouch
On the living room couch .t
At the time-honored in-.; Sal"
door-type sport.
Want proof? According to
the United States Census
Bureau, which keeps track of
such things, the world popu-
lation has increased from
three billion in 1960, to be-
tween five and six billion in
2006. There's no way fox SOme .ame
hunting or soccer can ac- a te'
count for numbers like that.
Were talking planet-wide
participation and consider- "t'r
ing the explosion of naughty A tte fITa
websites, The Indianapolis
500 and NASCAR racing take
a back seat to this spectator
sport.
Prize money for the
monthly Write Limericks -
Win Cash contest has been
increased and the already low
entry fee has been dropped to 'tnio Esl' I
just a dollar. The September Halamao,
contest is under way now and FIt
the subject is: FAMILY- par- il the
ents, kids, crazy relatives, kith
and kin of all kinds. Deadline 1

erickcontests.com using the

tention to another, just start- hft~gS

Nationally recognized Oscar Scherer State Park will be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.


JOHN ROCHE
FRESH AIR COLUMNIST


SHow many dimes have you
heard that expression? Do
you know where it comes
from? Let's look at the "Dog
Days" as the ancients did.
Back when it used to be
possible to see all the stars
and heavenly bodies, people
were fascinated with the dif-
ferent shapes that could be
made of these mysterious
lights in the sky. As the
shapes reappeared each sea-
son, they were given names,
and man began setting them
to folklore, mythology and
prediction.
In the summer sky is the
constellation, Canis Major,
whose brightest star is
called Sirius, "the Dog Star."


This is the brightest star
in our skies; the Romans
even thought it gave off heat
;lik~' the sun. Therefore,
when the "Dog Star" is over-
head in the middle,of sum-
mer, we typically have the
hottest days of. the year.
From mid-July to mid-
September, those annoying
"dog days" make for some
uncomfortable times.
There must be some rea-
sons for all this? We are just
finishing our rainy season
and the many fall plants
coming to fruit have this
extra moisture draw for their
transpiration, adding vol-
ume to fruit and flowers, the
last growth period before'the
dormant dry season. Altern-
atively, maybe the heat and
humidity helps keep the ani-


mals safe and healthy; how,
you ask? One, the heat makes
them active more at dusk
and dawn. Two, the high
humidity collects on feather
and fur and as it evaporates
it cools. On the other hand,
maybe the high humidity in
the air provides softer bark,
trunks and branches for flora
to survive the high winds of
late season hurricanes with-
out snapping. Both con-
tribute to survival of the
fittest.
Does that mean we can
survive the Dog Days too? In
addition, what about the
dogs themselves? Well, an-
other definition of "Dog
Days" is simply a period of
stagnation or inactivity, and
that may be good advice. If
you must work or play out-


doors, however, take certain
precautions to keep yourself
healthy and remember pets
can suffer the same prob-
lems we do, like overheating,
dehydration and even sun-
bum. Take a few simple pre-
cautions, so you and your
-dog can enjoy the summer
months.
Dogs are much less effi-
cient at cooling themselves
than us, so always have
fresh, cool water available
for your dog whether on a
walk, in the car,, or in a tip-
proof bowl at the house.
Look for things like rapid
heartbeat, breathing hard,
staggering, dazed look, list-
lessness, restlessness and
vomiting. If you suspect a
heat-induced illness in some-
one or your dog, gradually


lower his body temperature
by moving him to the shade
or air-conditioning, apply
cold packs to his head, neck
or belly, or immerse in cool
(not cold) water, giving small
amounts of cool water or ice
cubes and then get med-
ical treatment as soon as
possible.
Park staff and our
"Friends" want to let you
know that Oscar Stherer
State Park will be celebrating
its 50th anniversary this year.
Please join us at the park and
see what Mrs. Elsa Scherer
Burroughs left for you 50
years ago, and what we are
doing now to preserve it for
the next 50 years.

tem is one of the largest in

Shriners help children with

disabilities get'Fit for the Future'


STAFF REPORT


A new program may help
improve the lives of children
with disabilities and help
them better manage their
health.
Sixty-six percent of adults
with disabilities are not very
satisfied with their lives; 78
percent are unemployed; and
they have increased health
concerns, including" greater
susceptibility to additional
health problems.
A new DVD, however, may
help improve the future out-
look for children with dis-
abilities. Called "Fit for the
Future," it addresses two of
the most important issues
facing people with disabil-
ities today: health and em-
ployment. The DVD was re-
leased by Shriners Hospitals
for Children and the Federal
Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
"Fit for the Future" is
meant to be a unique, in-
novative program that fills a
void in available materials.
The DVD includes three 20-
to 30-minute, upbeat, kid-
friendly exercise routines,-
stretching, strengthening and
stamina that can be done
seated or standing. The exer-
cise portion of the DVD fea-
tures patients and therapists.
from the Tampa Shriners
Hospital, as well as FBI per-
sonnel from Tampa, Fla.:
Washington, D.C.; and Quan-
tico, Va.
SThe program also includes


PHOTO COURTESY OF NAPSA
A new program helps moti-
vate children with disabilities
to stay in shape and build a
bright future.

informational sections on
the Shriners fraternity, Shrin-
ers Hospitals for Children
and the FBI.
The DVD has a second,
equally important message
of potential future employ-
mient. Statistically, people
with disabilities have the
highest unemployment rate
(around 70 percent). Learn-
ing that the FBI specifically
wants to hire people with
disabilities could be a tre-
mendous source of encour-
agement for kids with dis-
abilities.
While designed primarily
for .children with ortho-
paedic disabilities, "Fit for the
Future" is an exercise pro-
gram virtually everyone can
use. The exercise routines
featured are general and basic
enough to offer a starting
point for a imess regimen.
There is a growing aware-


ness of the importance of
providing exercise oppor-
tunities for people with dis-
abilities. "We believe that a
program featuring children
with disabilities, as well as
the strong presence of an
FBI Agent as both partner
and role model, may help
motivate children with dis-
abilities to exercise," said
Peter Armstrong, M.D., med-
ical affairs director for Shrin-
ers Hospitals for Children.
Credit for the concept be-
longs to FBI Special Agent
James Knights, who is also a
Shriner. Knights, of Pitts-
burgh, Pa., wanted to create
a way to help children with
disabilities know that if they
worked hard and stayed as
strong and healthy as possi-
ble, their future could in-
clude a career in the FBI.
For more information on'
Shriners' network of 22 hos-
pitals that provide medical
care and services to children
with orthopedic problems,
burns, spinal cord injuries,
and cleft lip and palate at
no charge, write to Shriners
International Headquarters,
2900 Rocky Point Dr., Tampa,
33607 or visit shrinershq.org.
All services are provided at
no charge to children yong-
er than 18, regardless of
financial need or relation to
a Shriner.
SIf you know a child whom
Shriners can help, call (800)
237-5055 in the United States
or (800) 361-7256 in Canada.

for this deadly disease," said
Steven Lipman, MD, Inter-
ventional Radiologist at
Doctors Hospital of Sarasota.
In the United States, more
than eight million Americans
suffer from PAD.-hardening
of the arteries (also known
as "atherosclerosis") in the
limbs, often the legs. One in
20 Americans over the age of
50 has PAD., and many of
those with PAD. do not ex-
perience symptoms. PA.D.
can reduce mobility and
increase the risk for heart
attack and stroke, and if left
untreated, PA.D. can be fatal.
P.A.D. is caused by the
same risk factors that lead
to heart disease. It is a com-


mon and treatable disease.
However, PAD. is still large-
ly unknown, often unrecog-
nized, and regarded by many
as an inevitable consequence
of aging. People who are at
risk for PAD. include anyone
over the age of 50, especially
African Americans; those
who smoke or have smoked;
and those who have dia-
betes, high blood pressure,
high blood cholesterol, or a
personal or family history of
vascular disease, heart attack,
or stroke.
PAD. is a serious disease
that is on the rise among
midlife and older Americans.
Stepping up awareness of
PA.D. will help Americans
stay in circulation and re-
main healthy and active.

WORDS WORTH
.....HEARING









By Vicki Connell, g
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I recently heard about a
new hearing aid which uses
"Bluetooth" technology.
What are its advantage?
A. Today's hearing aids are
experiencing a "wireless
revolution" just like other
technologies. We already
have electronic devices that
connect us to our world
such as wireless telephones
and wireless internet.
Advanced wireless hearing
aids provide the possibility
of linking these various
wireless devices directly to
the hearing aid user's ear.
Wireless systems use radio
waves to send and receive
signals. This technology
brings the speaker's voice
directly to the listener's ear,
even over large distances.
This eliminates interference
from room reverberation
and background noise
resulting in clear and
comfortable communication.
Wireless hearing aids are
equipped with their own
FM receivers which can
pick up a transmitted FM
signal. Ideal application for
this technology would be
churches, lecture halls,
theaters and movie houses.
To see if your hearing aid
can be fit with an FM
receiver, call the Audiologists
at Woodmere Hearing
Center, Inc. at 941-492-
4327.

SENIOR SCENE


Senior-friendly cars save gas and money rma, ,i / ,


JIM MILLER
SAVVY SENIOR


Dear Savvy Senior,
Is there any research that
evaluates the best new cars for
senior citizens? My wife and I
are both in our 70s and are look-
ing for a new vehicle. What can
you tell us? Car-Shopping
Seniors

Dear Car-Shopping,
With nearly 20 million
licensed drivers in the United
States age 70 and older (that
number is expected to dou-
ble by 2030), auto makers
have started implementing
better features and options in
certain vehicles to accommo-
date the growing needs of
older drivers. But what makes
a good car for seniors? For
many, top priorities include a
vehicle that's easy to get into
and out of, easy to adjust for
fit and comfort, easy to
maneuver and see out of, as
well as reliable and a good
value.
Best senior vehicles
Recently, Edmunds.com
(the top rated online
resource for automotive
research information) evalu-
ated current models based
on senior-friendly features as
well as performance and
overall quality. Here's what
"they dame up with (and why)
"'a thabest new vehicles for
seniors. All are 2006 models.
Toyota Avalon
Prized for its roominess
and comfort, this full-size


sedan is a top-rated favorite
of older drivers. Senior-
friendly features include a
standard tilt and telescoping
steering wheel, which makes
it easy for the driver to find a
safe, comfortable seating
position, and available heat-
ed power seats for soothing
aching backs. It also offers a
keyless ignition, which does
away with grasping and
twisting an ignition key
(instead the engine is activat-
ed by touching a button).
Manufacturer's suggested
retail price (MSRP): $26,775
to $33,965.
Ford 500
This large sedan offers a
tall seating position, which
makes for an easier entry and
exit for seniors who have
problems bending and
stooping. Other handy fea-
tures include a standard
heated, power-adjustable
driver seat with memorized
settings for two drivers.
Pedals that adjust to accom-
modate your size are also
available, as are rear parking
sensors, which sound a sig-
nal to indicate how close you
are to what's behind you
when you're backing up. The
trunk is the largest in its class
with a low "belt-line" entry
level, which makes loading
and unloading the trunk
much easier. MSRP: $24,430
to $28,730.

Toyota Prius (hybrid)
You may be surprised that
a smaller-sized hybrid made
'the list but the Prius has fea-
tures that make life easier for
older drivers who have
arthritis and other joint
problems, including a but-
tonless, easy-to-move shifter.
Other handy options include.
keyless ignition, touch-
screen controls and an
optional voice-command
system that lets you control
temperature, GPS navigation,
audio and Bluetooth cell-


phone dialing simply by
speaking. An available back-
up camera display provides a
rearward view on a screen on
the dashboard, making park-
ing easier for those with
arthritis of the neck or spine.
And anyone can appreciate
this hybrid's excellent fuel
economy typically in the
mid-40s miles per gallon.
MSRP: $21,725. (Note:
Substantial federal tax credits
are available to most hybrid
buyers. See hybridcars.com
to learn more.)
Buick Lucerne
Another longtime favorite
among older drivers has
been the Buick LeSabre. The
LeSabre, however, has been
discontinued, but its replace-
ment for 2006, the Lucerne,
is even better. Improvements
include better handling and
more supportive seating, and
senior-friendly options are
seats that can be heated and
cooled and rear parking sen-
sors. MSRP: $25,265 to
$34,265.
Toyota Sienna (minivan)
If you're looking for some-
thing bigger to transport your
grandkids or friends from
time to time, you'll like the
Sienna's roominess. Handy
options include power slid-
ing doors, a power rear
hatch, power folding rear
seat, voice-activated controls
and a backup camera with
front and rear parking sen-
sors. And seniors with signifi-
cant mobility problems can
order a "Mobility Upgrade"
package (toyota.com/mobili-
ty) that includes features like
hand controls, electric swivel
lift-up seats and a wheel-
chair/scooter lift. MSRP:
$23,775 to $38,380.

Other top vehicles for
seniors on Edmunds.com's

Tragedy struck on Sept.


Battery Park City is an
oasis of calm within
sight of Ground Zero,
where the twin towers
of the World Trade
Center collapsed on
Sept. 11, 2001

BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

Sept. 11 marks the fifth an-
niversary of the terrorist at-
tack on the United States.
While work and planning
continues in regard to
Ground Zero, the nearby
Battery Park neighborhood
sits as an oasis of calm at the
southern top of Manhattan, a
place worthy of a visit. It con-
tains nearly 36 acres of per-
manently protected open
space where tourists and resi-
dents can unwind even as
they recall,the day when pas-
senger jets were used as
bombs.
Pirating transcontinental
jets, terrorists flew them into
the twin towers of the World
Trade Center in NewYork City,
the Pentagon in Washington,
and, thwarted by passengers,
crashed into a field in
Pennsylvania.
The Pentagon has been
repaired and markers placed
in the field but the most visi-
ble reminder of those attacks
remains a large empty field,
the former site of the towers.
Thousands of tons of debris
have been removed from the
site. Plans have been made,
unmade and altered these
past five years regarding what
will eventually be built on the
site.
In nearby Battery Park,
more than two-thirds of the
residents fled when the giant
towers collapsed, spewing
dust and. debris for miles.
Gateway Plaza, the largest of
the residential buildings in
Battery Park, was punctured
by airplane parts, and the
Winter Garden restaurant was
severely damaged.

Ground zero today. Picture was taken through the the Winter Garden's windows. Construction is ongoing.


Environmental concerns
regarding dust from the Trade
Center were a source of
worry.
SThe North Bridge, the 400-
foot pedestrian bridge con-
necting the World Trade Cen-
ter to the World Financial
Center was crushed during
the attack and was replaced
with glass windows facing
east. Much of the remaining
damage in Battery Park has
been repaired. Reduced rents
and government subsidies
have gone a long way to re--
storing residents to the neigh-
borhood.


Winter Garden restored
Standing as the center-
piece of the World Financial
Center is the rebuilt 45,000-
squareafoot Winter, Garden .:
restaurant, which was re-
opened in September 2002.
Its marble flooring and glass
windows in the grand public
space suffered severe damage
on its east side during the
attack. The restoration pro-
ject included nearly.70 per-
cent of the restaurant's arch-
ed, ceiling, half of its grand
staircase and the marble
floor. More than 500 laborers
worked nine months to re-
place 60,000 square feet of tri-


color Italian marble, 2,000
glass panes and sixteen 43-
foot-tall Washingtonian palm
trees in the 10lstory Winter
Garden space. .' --' '
Nearby at the public
spaces and parks of Battery
Park City, a mixture of careful-
ly designed formal public gar-
dens, playing fields, play-
grounds, plazas, walkways
and lovingly tended commu-
nity garden plots.
The city's master plan speci-
fies that 30 percent of the site
must be held as open space,

for both residents and tourists
to explore. The Park Pavilions
contain a restaurant, and its
public roof deck affords
breathtaking views of the
Statue of Liberty and New
York Harbor. Also here is the
Museum of Jewish Heritage.
Today's Battery Park is far
different from the area of
dilapidated shipping piers
and blight that took over the
area in the late 1950s as air
transport prospered. Initial
proposals to reclaim the area
with landfill date to the early
1960s. Despite support by pri-
vate business owners and the
mayor, the plan was compli-
cated by Gov. Nelson Rocke-
feller's desire to redevelop a
part of the area as a separate
project. When the various
groups reached a compro-
mise in 1966, the governor
unveiled the proposal for
what .became Battery Park
City.

should include a stop at

of open lawns and intensively
planted gardens threaded
with paths and walkways.

ment to survival.

DICK HARRISON
COLUMNIST


Do you remember when
the ape-man found the Ele-
phant Graveyard that mys-
terious place old elephants go
to die? Without Jane, Boy,
Cheetah or Edgar Rice Bur-
roughs, I've stumbled upon a
similar burying ground. In
fact, I've discovered a number
of "bone yards" as secret and .
remarkable as the ivory col-
lection my childhood hero
spotted as he swung, yodel-
ing, from vine to vine. Unlike
Tarzan, I didn't have to leave
the house.
Here's how it happened. I
was groping under the edge
of the bedspread for my jog-
ging shoes. After two or three
tries I found no joggers. It was
then I kneeled, flashlight in
hand, and discovered "the
place where old shoes go to
die." Out of arm's reach, the
beam revealed a treasure
trove of forgotten footwear,
huddled in death, ..covered
with a layer of dust and lint.
Like the first shaft of light to
penetrate KingTut's tomb, my ,
flashlight illuminated soles
no human feet had touched
'for ages past.
Among the cracked leather
dress shoes were more jog-


gers than I remember pos-
sessing. Limp loafers lay
alongside several of my wife's
tennis shoes and pumps so
old they predated inside
plumbing. In the semi-dark I
glimpsed a pair of wing tips.
Should I retrieve them all;
perhaps donate them to a
museum?
Then an, eerie feeling
raised the hair on the back of
my neck. What if I discovered
high-top sneakers, Army bro-
gans or penny loafers with
tarnished Lincoln cents still
in place? Suppose there were
a curse. Did I want to be
found mysteriously strangled
with the rawhide laces from a
pair of Boy Scout moccasins?
I chose to leave the dead in
peace with no one the wiser.
Not long after, I discovered
another convention of burn-
ed out bodies. In the far cor-
ner of the closet, just clinging
to life, I found a graveyard for
previously three-way bulbs.
Now consigned to darkness
they were one-way cripples
yanked from their three-way
sockets. I could dimly re-
member adding to their
number anticipating the
need for a low wattage bulb to
replace one in the attic. But
bulbs up there never burn
out. They're only on for a few
minutes around Christmas
when I'm looking for the tree
ornaments. Even with the
manufacturers' built-in obso-
lescence they'll last longer
than the Edison prototypes
that have burned every day
since Thomas Alva's death.
I wasn't even looking for
bulbs. I was seeking "the
place where old gloves go to


die." Hoping to find a service-
able pair for gardening, I
found only aged singles, who
had pined away for their lost
mates. Like other widows and
widowers they'd come a long
way to die to a Florida
condo an air-conditioned
eternity.
Socks are a different story.
There's no special place they
go to die. They hang around
the sock drawer hoping to get
lucky after their mates have
passed on. Sometimes they
match up again. Or circum-
stances throw two singles to-
gether for a one-night stand.
In a pinch, I've worn one
black and one navy sock, or a
calf length and an ankle
length. Who notices unless I
wear shorts?
If you have a garage, avoid-
ing bone yards is impossible.
That's where old paint cans go
to die. Also tired insecticides,
automobile polishes and lub-
ricants. In Florida, snow shov-
els and ice scrapers congre-
gate in comers with squeeze
mops that won't squeeze,
ragged brooms and homeless
vacuum cleaner hoses. Gard-
eners create their own nec-
ropolis for empty pots,
moldering amaryllis bulbs,
concrete hard bags of fertiliz-
er witi unreadable labels and
rusty pruning shears so dull
they make Elmer Snerd look
like Albert Einstein. That's
where "Potter's Field" came
from.

'Beck'-ing to differ with an old phrase


JUND CASAGRANDE
A PLEASE



I got an e-mail recently from
a man named Bob in Pennsyl-
vania. But before I share it with
you, I need to make a request
Let's go easy on Bob. It was
tough enough for him to admit
how his question arose from
reading John Grisham novels
- but the answer, as you'll see,
was also hard to swallow.
Bob wrote:
'A few years ago, I began to
notice that at some:point in

dead and dying. Let the pack
consume everything we've
forgotten about while leaving

nearly everyone of his novels,
John Grisham uses the phrase
'beck and call,' as in, for exam-
ple, 'She was at his beck and
call.' While it started out as a
small annoyance, with each
recurring appearance, it be-
came the bane of my existence.
Finally, to exorcise the demon, I
wrote to his publisher, and
since it was unlikely that Mr.
Grisham would ever give up his
pet phrase entirely, I suggested
that he probably means to say
'beckon call.' I reasoned that
the word'beck,' in and of itself,
has no meaning in this context,
while 'beckon call' would make
perfect sense as in, if the
character called to beckon her,
she would come running. To
the publisher's credit, a repre-
sentative did respond to my
comment, but only to inform
me that to their knowledge,
either spelling-'beck and call'
or'beckon call' is grammati-
cally correct. Could you please
clear this up? If I am wrong,
then T will graciously (if grudg-
ingly) accept defeat, and I will
never speak of it again. Thank
you. Bob"

me to resolve years-long con-

undrums like this one, I can't
help but smile. It's a guilty
smile, really. The smile of a
conwoman, a fraud who is
giddy with the thrill.of pulling
a fast one. That's because
people like Bob think they've
found inme a language guru,
a usage oracle, a grammar
genius.. They think I know the
answers.
I don't The only thing that
separates me from Bob is that I
happen to own some of the
books that contain the an-
swers.
For a question like this, you
turn to a "usage" guide. Web-
ster's has one, Fowler's is the
best-known one, "Garner's
Modem American Usage" is
the oneIrelyon most So, being
the all-knowing oracle that I
am, I simply opened my Gam-
er's and wrote back to Bob.
"Holy moly! Who knew?
I was about to write back
and tell you I agreed with you
but then I decided at the last
minute to check my facts (all
those years in a newsroom
finally pay off). And, much to
my surprise, I find this:
'Beck and call is the idiom....
A "beck" is a summoning ges-


ture. The word arose in Middle
English and is related to both
"beckon" and "beacon." -
Garner's Modem American
Usage.
Neither AP, Chicago nor
Fowler's has an entry. ButWeb-
ster's New Word College Dic-
tionary has 'beck' as a word! A
beck is a gesture of the hand or
head meant to summon. Who
knew!?!
Thanks for the column fod-
der. (I see a headline in my
future: 'Don't bedk us, we'll
beckyou.')
Jaw still dropped, June"
I riust say, Bob tookit pret-
ty well:
"I am humbled. I suppose
it serves me right for reading
all those John Grisham books
anyway, doesn't it? But I do
want to thank you for person-
ally replying to my ... beck?
Hmm. I just don't think I'll
ever get used to that."
'No doubt about it, Bob's a
trouper. Still, if you happened
to catch a few months ago my
column about how "spit and
image" is correct and "spitting
image" is incorrect, please don't
tell Bob. He's got enough on his
mind right now.

Venice archivist Dorothy
Korwek said she was in the
field filming the movie,
"Imagining Venice" and did
not know about the incident
until after the towers fell.
She happened to phone
Suzanne Tutor at the Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion of Venice. Tutor told her
what had happened.
"We had been out at the
airport filming touch and
goes (practice take-offs and
landings) in August before it
happened," Korwek said. "It
was eerie watching those
afterward."
Nineteen terrorists died
in the attacks with some
3,000 victims of the tragedy.
Memories remain.

Mental fitness tips
Dear Savvy Senior,
Can you give me some tips
on how to sharpen my mind
and improve my memory? I just
turned 60 and have some con-
cerns about keeping mentally
fit as I age. What can you tell
me? Forgetful Frank

Dear Frank,
For most people, starting
around age 50, the brain's
ability to remember names,
multi-task or learn some-
thing new starts to go down-
hill. But the good news is
there are things you can do
to fend off age-related


decline and even build a
stronger brain. Here are
some tips that can help.
Exercise the brain
Just as physical exercise
keeps your body fit, mental
exercise keeps your mind
sharp and agile. One way to
do this is to continue to learn
and challenge yourself. An
active brain produces new
connections between nerve
cells that allow cells to com-
municate with one another.
This helps your brain store
and retrieve information
more easily, no matter what
your age. How can you chal-
lenge yourself? Here are
some mind boosting activi-
ties to try: crossword and jig-
saw puzzles; games such as
Scrabble, cards, chess or
checkers; learn to play a
musical instrument; start a
new hobby, such as crafts,
painting or take a class in
something you're interested
in; learn a foreign language;
write a memoir; stay
informed \\ith what's going.
on in the world; read; voiun-


teer; and turn off the tube -
too much TV-watching weak-
ens brain power, although
programs like "Wheel of
Fortune" and "Jeopardy" can
be beneficial.
Exercise the body
Exercise increases blood
flow to all parts of your body,
including your brain, and
keeps the brain cells well
nourished. So pick an activity
you enjoy (walking, dancing,
swimming, etc.) and do it for
at least 20 minutes three
times'a week.
Eat healthy
What you eat has a direct
effect on your brain, so limit
sugar and saturated fats and
eat lots of antioxidant-rich
foods (substances that pro-
tect and nourish the brain
cells). Some of the best foods
for the brain include: broc-
coli, spinach and other leafy
greens, oranges, blueberries,
low-fat milk or yogurt, eggs,
black-beans and other
!, legiumes. whole-wheat bread,
enriched brco\n rice, salmon, "


poultry and lean meats.
Socialize
Interacting with other
people is the best single
brain exercise. It brings all
the senses into play, forces
you to think, and hones your
speaking and listening skills.
Reduce stress
When you're stressed,
your brain releases hor-
mones that can damage your
brain, and chronic stress can
make you feel depressed or
anxious, which can interfere
with the way your brain
processes memories.
Meditation, yoga and tai chi
are all good ways to help
reduce stress.
Savvy note
Be aware that memory
loss can be brought on by a
variety of factors like: lack of
sleep, side effects of medica-
tions, depression, vitamin
deficiencies, alcohol, smok-,
ing, a head injury, thyroid
disease, a small stroke,
Alzheimer' disease and


more. If your memory loss or
forgetfulness is starting to
affect your daily life, you
need to see your doctor.
Brain starters
Another way to stimulate
the mind is by doing familiar
things in unfamiliar ways.
Here are some fun and sim-
ple ways you can disrupt
your mindless routines and
get your brain ticking again:
Switch hands: Use your
nondominant hand for activ-
ities like eating, brushing
your teeth, tying your shoes,
etc.
Small changes: Try some
minor adjustments like rear-
ranging the furniture, reorga-
nizing the items on your desk
or taking a new route to work
or the store.
Close your eyes: Try
familiar activities with your
eyes closed. For example, try
counting a handful of
change using only your sense
of touch.
Read out loud: Reading
out loud stimulates the brain
much more so than reading


silently.
Savvy tips
A new game on the mar-
ket (for baby boomers and
seniors) is Brain Age
(brainage.com). Made by
Nintendo, this is a fun and
easy-to-use, hand-held elec-
tronic device that offers a
series of daily mind-boosting
games to help sharpen the
mind. Brain Age is played on
a palm-sized Nintendo DS
game unit ($19.99 for Brain
Age, $129 for the DS unit).
And a good new book that
offers lots of helpful tips is
"The Longevity Bible"
(Hyperion, $23.95) written by
Gary Small, who is also the
author of "The Memory
Bible" and "The Memory
Prescription."

Love on the rocks


BYJANETSANNER
GUEST WRITER

Grandchildren are one of the greatest gifts we can receive. I
guess that's why they're called 'grand.' I remember holding my
first grandson, Curtis. I looked into his eyes and felt I was see-
ing all the way down into his very soul. I noticed that he was
studying me, too. In this deep communion we shared, I vowed
that I would give him my very life, if necessary.
As it turned out, he, and the other grandchildren to follow,
were the givers. They have given me the gift of seeing the world
through their eyes. They have helped me to remember what it
was like to be a child again... to experience childish, simple
pleasures.
I remember the first time I
went to the beach with a
grandchild. I got to play in the
sand; and build a castle, and
splash in the water. I had fun!
Normally I sat in a chair, trying --
not to get sand on me. IfI went
into the water, it was delicate-
ly, so as not to get my hair wet.
In other words, I had become
a fuddy-duddy. But, that day, I
reveled in the sand, the beach,
the water.
One day, I was walking
down the street with two of
my grandchildren, Andrew-
and Brittany. Andrew, about P
10 at the time, ran ahead of us
and began shinnying up a a -
light pole. I felt an overwhelm-
ing admiration for him. Oh, if
only I could do that. I had
never been able to shinny. If I
didn't try it now, I never would.
I wasn't getting any younger.
"Andrew, would you show ::'- ..:"
me how to do that?" I blurted
out. I must say, to Andrew's
credit, that he wasn't the least
surprised that his grandmoth- .*.
er, an old lady, wanted to do
this. In fact, he was quite
encouraging. "It's easy, Nana, Austin Deramo, in the foregrou
you just do this." And up he Christopher, encouraged their
went. I triedto watch his every
movement, but he was so fast. "Try it slower," I suggested. He
happily obliged. Once again my eyes carefully followed him.
Iwas now convinced that I could do this 'shnnv' thing. I put
my hands on the pole above my head, but every time I tried to
wrap my legs around the pole, I would slide to trie ground.
Andrew looked on with confusion. He couldn't understand
why I wasn't able to do it either.
"Let me give you a boost up," he said helpfully. With'that, he
bent down and began trying to push me up the pole. My feet


never even came off the ground. Fearing that I might hurt my
poor grandson, I finally and reluctantly gave up.
Some years later, I was with three more of my grandchil-
dren: Christopher, Alexis and Austin. They were about 10, 8
and 6 years of age, in that order. We were at the Venice
jetty...rock hopping. Well, let me be a little more specific ...
they were rock hopping. I was a bystander with that old yearn-
ing inside.
I could do this. I used to climb the big rocks along the
Delaware River when I was a child. "But," that old part of me
said, "what if you fall? You'll break something. After all, you're
not a kid anymore."
The little girl in me said, "You can do it."
I looked around to see where my grandchildren were. I did-

n't want them to see me.


Would they be embarrassed by the~, old grandmother up pn
the rocks? they seemed to be far o hatay. .
Tentatiel,; I swung my leg up onto the boulder, hoisted
myself up, and stood-on top of the world, or so it felt. I was the
champion of the Delaware River, once more.
Now, I had never left my one rock, yet. To do this right, I was
going to have to jump to another rock. My i heart was pounding.
I looked for the nearest flat surface, estimated the distance
and jumped.


In my many years, I have had a few mountaintop experi-
ences. That day, as I safely landed, I was raised to new heights.
I did it! I did it! I did it!
I continued jumping, as the adrenaline pumped through
my body. Suddenly, I heard a little voice say; "Way to go, Nana."
I looked around and spotted Austin nestled down in the rocks,
watching me. I wondered if he was being sarcastic. But, he
added, "You must be the oldest rock hopper in the world."
Then I knew... he was proud of me!
More recently, I was shopping with my daughter, Susan, and
her daughter, 3-year-old Emily. Emily began hiding in the
clothes racks.
"Nana, come find me." She would call in her little girl voice.
I would 'boo' her, as she calls it, and she would giggle. In a con-
spiratorial tone, Emily said,
"Let's hide from Mommy."
"I'm too big to fit in there," I
said.
S"You can fit, Nana," she
insisted.
Not wanting to disappoint
her, and, also a little curious, I
got down on my knees and
tried crawling into the little
space. I was amazed. It was
L almost as if we were in a little
cocoon. Noises were muffled.
Lights were dimmed. No won-
der kids like to do this, I
thought. Emily was urging me
Sto get my legs in so Mommy
wouldn't see us and I realized,
with disappointment, that I
couldn't. I was too big. Oh, the
downside of being a grown-
up! Yet, because of Emily, I
had, briefly, been transported
to the wonderful world of chil-
dren.


Some of my 10 grandchil-
Sdren are teenagers now, on
their way to being adults. They
don't build sand castles any-
". 1 more. They don't shinny up
poles. They wouldn't dream of
andmother the joys of hide-and- hiding in a department store
clothing rack. Our relationship
has changed. We are friends
instead of playmates. This stage, too, is special. But, they are
busy with their lives, and that is how it should be.
."i.i'The.last r ool m.grandchildrento be born are both3years
old. I keep trlearening to put a big block on their heads to keep
them from growing up. They giggle. They don't know that I real-
ly mean it. After all, who will come out and playwith me when
they're grown?

Remember your grandparents today


Happy Grandparents Day


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
COLUMNIST
This is Grandparents Day.
If you have a grandparent
anywhere in the country, I
hope you will pick up the
phone and call them. Even if
you know a grandparent, call
them. There are a lot of lonely
ones out there.
I know in Big Rapids this
won't appear on Grandpa-
rents Day, but any day is a
good day to call.
My grandparents had all
died before I was born, so it is
hard to imagine two little
boys in Venice who not only
have grandparents, but great-
grandparents too (the
younger boy, Tyler, had not
been born when the photo at
right was taken) And to see
their grandparents as they
live nearby- what a wonder-
ful way to grow up. Melinda
Mudge said, "Learning by
observation is a part of their
lives."
Now, Melinda is our lovely,
capable director of commu-
nity relations. In other words,
she's the one who keeps* in
contact with anyone in the
community who might be
interested in Harbor Chase,
where I have lived for seven
and a half years. And it just so


happens that the boys' father,
Bob Mudge, is the fiice, smart
and genial guy who is the
capable editor of the Venice
Sun Gondolier.
Melinda moved to Florida
first, then her parents, Pam
and Bob Haney. Her grand-
parents, Jerry and Jeanne Ha-
ney, still live in Sugarcreek,
Ohio.
In today's world where few
people live close to their fam-


life as they see their grandpar-
ents, who often babysit them.
This is a good time to talk
about the Friendship at
Home Program sponsored by
the Senior Friendship Center
in Venice that every commu-
nity might want to adopt.
About two years ago,
before I started writing this
column, my days were pretty
long, as I cannot see. Some-
one told Friendship at Home

"Donald and Marilyn Gibertini recently celebrated their 50th
wedding anniversary in Clearwater, Fla., with their eight chil-
dren and their spouses, and 18 grandchildren. There were
three generations of Gibertinis all in one place for the first
time in a long time. "We did it," Don said, "and without a
funeral as an incentive. Truly a grateful moment."


PHOTO COURTESY OF LYLE AND SUE MEKKES


Lyle and Sue Mekkes of Venice pose with children, Todd and
Deb Smith of Charlotte, N.C., and grandsons, Jacob, age 5
months, and Mason, 2-1/2.


PHOTO COURTESY OF GAYLE HARRISON
"My name is Gayle Harrison and my father-in-law is Dick
Harrison, who is a columnist for the Venice Gondolier Sun.
"He wrote an article for the Gondolier that was published
Sunday, Aug. 27, ("The perfect wave.") The children he refers
to are mine and the story at our wedding is true (I have pic-
tures to prove it.) There have been many touching stories
through the years. When his son and I married he became a
grandpa to four. Now he has five grandchildren, three grand-
children-in-law and four great grandchildren. Two are in the
Army, who he keeps in close contact with, and one is about to
go to the Air Force. All are graduates from Venice High.
"Both Dick and his wife Lee, took to these kids from day one
and loved them as no other grandparent could love their
grandchildren. You would think they were there from the day
they were born. Maybe they were in some way. Every child
would be lucky to have someone in their lives like them."

PHOTO COURTESY OF MARIAN BOND
"This is my grandchild, Ryan
David Bond. He was born July
14, 2006. He is 1 week old in

Eric and Mary Bond. I am his
proud grandmother, Marian
Bond, and I live in Venice."
