LaMorte


to learn

his fate

next week
BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER.

In less than a week, former
Venice High School coach
James LaMorte Sr. will find
out how much prison time
he'll get for molesting a for-
mer student. It could be as
much as 30 years.
Assistant state attorney
Dawn Buff said earlier she
had not decided whether to
push for the maximum sen-
tence.
LaMorte, 64, pleaded guilty
to sexually abusing a student
25 'years ago. He pleaded
guilty only hours before his
trial was scheduled to start
April 10.
The sentence hearing is
expected to last all day.
Witnesses will be allowed to
testify at the Sept. 19 hearing.
LaMorte pleaded to one
count of sexual assault and
battery on a victim over 12
years old by a person in custo-
dial authority, and no contest
to another count of sexual
assault by a person in custodi-
al authority. Additionally, La-
Morte pleaded to one count
of a lewd and lascivious act in
the presence of a child under
16 years old.
LaMorte will be sentenced
by Sarasota County Circuit
Judge Andrew Owens.
(Owens presided over the
trial in which Joseph Smith
was found guilty of the kid-
nap-murder of 11-year-old
Carlie Brucia. Her body was
found Feb. 6, 2004. The case
made international head-
lines. Owens also presided in
the death penalty phase. He
sentenced Smith to death for
the murder, and life for the
kidnap-rape.)
Admissions, apologies
The allegations against La-
Morte surfaced in early 2005
after five men, now adults,
came forward and gave state-
ments to police.
LaMorte, according to in-
vestigators' reports, made
"some admissions" and

County accepts moratoriums in principle


The county commission will formally decide
Monday whether compromises offered by Venice
and North Port warrant trying one more time to
reach joint planning agreements with the cities.


BY MARY APOSTOLU
STAFF WRITER


Thursday's Sarasota Coun-
ty Commission meeting was
held before a rare standing-
room-only crowd, as officials
from Venice and North Port
tried to keep a worrisome
charter amendment from
getting on the November bal-
lot.
The amendment would
mandate that county zoning


designations remain on prop-
erty annexed by a city unless
the city and the county
agreed on a change.
"I'm not sure an amend-
ment is really necessary, if all
three municipalities are
involved from the start,"
Venice area developer Mike
Miller said. "A moratorium
sounds reasonable. If the
poor communication in the
past can be improved, only
good can come of it."


County commissioners say
they have not been consulted
on annexation decisions that
have created excessive
demands on the county to
provide infrastructure to
serve the annexed property.
The cities of Venice and
North Port both submitted
proposals for a moratorium
on annexations for six
months, time to allow the
county and municipalities -to
work together on joint plan-
ning agreements. The majori-,
ty of the speakers urged the
county commission to delay
the decision to allow further
study.
"We need the time to
thresh out accurate informa-
* tion and an opportunity to


get to a JPA that the city and
county wants and needs,"
said Venice Mayor Fred
Hammett.
"We owe it to the public to
prevent something that could
have negative impact," said
Historic Preservation Board
chair Janis .Fawn. "I am in
favor of the six-month mora-
torium, as it will give the pub-
lic time to come to the table,
has a closure dhte, will save
on legal fees and provide a
forum for communication."
The six-hour meeting cul-
minated in changes to the
proposed agreement.
Venice officials deter-
mined the changes were not
significant enough to require
an additional city council


meeting.
North Port's representa-
tives, however, didn't have the
authority to agree to the
adjustments, so there will be
a meeting at 9 a.m. Monday
to discuss the proposed
changes.
The county commission
public hearing was recessed
until Monday at noon, to
reconvene at the administra-
tion building in Sarasota.
Commissioners will then
decide to accept the agree-
ments as modified or put the
charter amendment up for a
referendum vote on the
November ballot.

New developers of the
Flying Bridge property are
proposing an extensive array
of public amenities in their
otherwise exclusive marina-
condominium complex on
Blackburn Point Road on the
Intracoastal Waterway.
On Tuesday, the Sarasota
County Commission approv-
ed major changes to its
marine zoning district that
will help preserve public
access to area waterways -
and allow R&D Companies of

Naples to develop a narrow
slice of coveted property
under an earlier version of the
code, if they comply with
some new requirements.
"We still have to go
through the whole planning
process," said project spokes-
man Rob Rogers, "but we've
cleared the first big hurdle.'
The commission is re-
structuring its rules by allow-
ing mixed-use projects at
marinas including resi-
dences to give developers
flexibility and add incentives
that encourage them to retain
marinas rather than replace


them with condominiums, as
is happening along the
Southwest Florida coast.
New regulations also
require free public boat slips
and guaranteed access to 30
percent of the property, in-
cluding specified waterfront
areas.
In return, developers are
allowed some increased den-
sity and may devote a larger
percentage of the site to resi-
dential units than was previ-
ously allowed.
Serious interest
The developers have
agreed to include 15 free tran-
sient boat slips for the public,
a 3,500-square-foot restau-
rant possibly to be called
The Flying Bridge a bike
and pedestrian path running
through the project from


Blackburn Point Road, plus
an array of marine-related
shops and a day spa, all open
to the public. They also must
guarantee public access to
most waterfront areas. There
will be 27,000 square feet of
retail space.
The project, which will be
called Casey Key Yacht Club,
will feature 21 luxury condo-
minium units from 2,000 to
4,500 square feet, priced at
somewhere between $2 mil-
lion and $4 million, Rogers
said, each with a private dock,
plus a pool and clubhouse.
Also for sale will be about
20 covered boat condos for
the docking of yachts drawing
as much as 8 feet of water,
and with beams up to 18 feet.
Those should sell for upward
of $400,000.

in the project anchored by

ter Jon Rubinton's R&D Com-
panies, said they are working
closely with county planning
staffers to incorporate much
of the "spirit" of the new code
in their project, although it is
being built under the old
code.
Final approval of the pro-
ject's plans, however, has yet
to be given by the county.
After a series of lawsuits
involving a previous develop-
er, Valencia Properties Group,
and the county, the new
developers paid $15.45 mil-
lion for the marinas 2.4 acres
of upland, a per-acre record
for the county, Rogers said.
"This is an amazing site,"
Rogers said. "We already have
some buyers indicating seri-
ous interest."

THIS WEEK IN VENICE HISTORY


School board might give bucks back


From the Sept. 12, 1981, Gondolier Sun


BY DAVID MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

School board members
acknowledged Saturday the
district is in line to get
more than voters bargained
for last year during the capi-
tal improvements, referen-
dum, but some see no way
to keep from receiving the
money. '
Barring legal obstacles,
though, three of the five
board members agree they
would rather not collect
more than the $10 million
voters were asked for prior
to the millage election last
spring.
Should this prove to be
the board's consensus during
budget hearings next week,


state officials say the board
should have little, trouble
overriding the letter of the
law to save taxpayers $3.5
million.
"Had they set the capital
outlay millage in the ballot
there would be no prob-
lem," said a spokesman for
the Florida House Finance
.*aAd[:TaI' Committee, "they
could have said the village
was rinotto exceed 1.25 and
assured themselves some
flexibility."
'"As a practical matter
though," she added, "no one
at the state level will object if
they roll back the millage."
Last year the board learn-
ed it would take a minimum
of $10 million to reverse the
trend of deterioration to 33


county public schools.
Although voters approved
the board's request for a
1..25-mill two-year capital
improvements program, in-
creased property assess-
ments this year will result in
a windfall of roughly $3.5
million more than board
members originally asked
for over two years.
While the 1.25 rate gener-
ated the expected $5 million
the first year, Sarasota County
Property Appraiser John
Mikos. said the same 1.25
rate will produce $8.5 mil-
lion this year.
Now that a mill is now
worth $6 million, Mikos
believes, the board could
direct him to roll back the
1.25 capital outlay millage to
0.83 and still generate the
remainder of the $10 million


needed to launch the school
maintenance program.
Because state statues
mandate the collection of the
revenue generated from the
1.25 mills approved by voters
last year, school attorney
Richard Cooney recently
issued a memorandum on
the matter, informing school
board members they are
unable to roll back the mill-
age.
He also said the extra $3.5
million can only be used in
the capital improvements
reserve fund and cannot be
shifted to any other category.
At the very worst, the
house committee spokesman
said, it was possible, though
unlikely, someone could
force the board in court to
levy the full 1.25 rate ap-
proved by voters.


Happy hour is going

to the dogs literally


Tropical Dog is going to be
thrilled to hear this.
In some parts of the coun-
try, pet owners are taking
their beloved canines out on
the town for "Yappie Hour"
celebrations. The dogs woof
down healthy "Muttinis" while
their owners socialize over
adult beverages.
Guy eyes girl. Dog sniffs
dog. Is everyone compatible
here?
Since we live in paradise,
our area would be ideal for
Yappie Hour events.
Why? Outdoor tables have
become increasingly com-
mon here after smokers were
kicked out of buildings.
Those places are perfect.
Some are even near fire

Reuse water spills in Venice


Approximately 750 gallons
of rain water mixed with
reuse water in a storage
pond leaked through a small
crack in a concrete outfall
structure before the crack
could be located and re-
paired. The incident hap-
pened on Sept. 12 around
10:30 a.m. near the beach in
Venice south of the pier
before the crack could be
located and repaired.
City of Venice utilities
workers responded to a
break in a reuse water serv-


ice line on Sept. 13 around
9:30 a.m. in the 1100 block
of South Indies Circle. About
200 gallons of reuse water
was spilled on the ground.
The pipe was repaired.
Reuse or reclaimed -
water is clean irrigation
water created from the
sewage treatment process.
It is used to irrigate golf
courses and some lawns in
Venice.
The spill presented no
danger to the public or the
environment.

Sarasota County gets lesson in PAC politics


Citizens for a Better Sarasota tried to change the
outcome of a county commission race. The PAC
failed when Joe Barbetta defeated opponents
Casey Pilon and John Lewis.


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


A covertly devised plan to
torpedo last week's bid by Joe
Barbetta for the District 2 seat
on the Sarasota County Com-
mission failed in part because
the plotters apparently could-
n't decide whether Casey
Pilon or John Lewis would
better serve their special in-
terests.
The developers, contrac-
tors and land-use lawyers
who organized as Citizens for
a Better Sarasota under an
obscure Florida election law
were clearly united in their,
opposition to Barbetta be-
cause of his smart-growth
platform and support for the
environment.
But under the state's "elec-
tioneering communication"
law, they were so constrained
that their misleading TV ads
could only mention the name.
of one candidate in this
case Barbetta and not
specifically advocate for
either his election or defeat.


Several area school teach-
ers inexplicably signed the
necessary paperwork when
Citizens for a Better Sarasota
filed with the Florida Division
of Elections to organize,
which allowed its backers to
pool $87,800 for ads that inac-
curately charged Barbetta
with development abuses.
The ads may have been
intended to confuse undecid-
ed voters who either didn't
know what Barbetta's views
on development were, or pos-
sibly to undermine support
among those who had only
recently heard he was for
careful growth. It is debatable
what their effect was.
The contributors
Reporting deadlines in the
state's tangled web of election
rules allowed the group's
members to remain anony-
mous until after the Sept. 5
election, but now their
names, affiliations and con-
-tributions are a matter of

Multiple checks
Ordinary people who con-
tribute to the campaigns of
local candidates are restricted
to only $200 for each election
cycle, and capped at a maxi-
mum of $600 if the candidate
competes in a primary, runoff
and general election. The same
holds true for businesses.
But it's an entirely different
story in the hazy world of
political action committees,
Committees of Continuous
Existence and groups such as
Citizens for a Better Sarasota
that form for something
called "electioneering com-
munication."


People and organizations
that finance the activities of
such groups are not con-
strained by $200 limits. Elec-
tion laws only limit them to
$5,000 for each election cycle
- $15,000 for a primary,
runoff and general election -
and some write checks on
several business accounts.
Public records show Ri-
volta, a Sarasota business-
man and developer, wrote a
$5,000 check from Rivolta
Yachts to Citizens for a Better
Sarasota, plus a $2,500 check
from Lancaster Develop-
ment, $2,500 from M&R De-
velopers and $2,500 from
Parkway Collectors Extra.
He didn't stop there. Rec-
ords also show Rivolta and his
wife contributed $200 each to
Pilon's campaign, and six
companies operating out of
his headquarters office at
2127 Ringling Blvd., Suite 102,
also contributed $200 each to
Pilon, a total of $1,600.
Electioneering.
Several other contributors
to Citizens for a Better Sara-
sota also contributed to Pilon,
among them Dabney, Derr,
Githler and Kaufmann, al-
though she insisted in the lat-
ter stages of her campaign
that she had nothing to do


with Citizens for a Better
Sarasota.
So did Lewis, although
post-election records indi-
cate his campaign received
checks from Citizens for a
Better Sarasota contributors
Bustard, Carr, Cox, Dabney,
Derr, Flanders, Kaufmann,
McDonough, Russell, Ses-
sions, Swift and Wilson.
PACs usually .raise and
spend money to elect or
defeat candidates. Most of
them have historically repre-
sented business, labor or ide-
ological interests. They have
been around since the mid-
1940s, and have proliferated
in recent years.
Ambitious politicians some-
times form what are known as
Leadership PACs, which exist
primarily to raise money for
other candidates' campaigns.
These types of organizations
are a useful tool for someone
who aspires to higher office or
party leadership positions.
A recent evolution in PACs
are 527 Groups that receive
tax-exempt status under Sec-
tion 527 of the Internal Reve-
nue Code. They are also al-
lowed to raise money for po-
litical activities, among them
voter mobilization, issue
advocacy and "electioneering
communications."

Jud ge orders pa per-trailise nobaIo


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Here's an issue one judge
thinks is worth the paper it's
written on.
On Wednesday, Chief Jus-
tice Robert Bennett of the
12th Judicial Circuit ordered
Sarasota County to put a pro-
posed charter amendment
question on the November
ballot that could require the
county to provide a paper trail
for votes cast on voting ma-
chines.
"The Board of County
Commissioners of Sarasota
County shall submit the pro-
posed amendment to the
Sarasota County Charter to
the Sarasota County elector-
ate in accordance -with the
requirements on provisions
of Article VII of the Sarasota
County Charter," Bennett
wrote.
That proposed amend-
ment would require a paper
trail of ballots for touch-
screen voting machines, as
well as independent audits
of county election results,
according to the Sarasota
Alliance for Fair Elections, the
group that ran a petition
drive for the ballot item.
More than 12,000 counvN
voters signed
a petition fav-
oring paper
ballots' and
compulsory
audits over -
or at least in
addition to -
the touch-
screen ma-
Staub chines cur-
rently in place
in Sarasota County. This was
enough names to get the
referendum on the November
ballot.
At their meeting on Aug.
22, however, commissioners
baOlned on the, measure. Ort
the.adice of Coun'iy Artorn-
ey Stephen Detoarsh, they
agreed to file a lawsuit for a
judgment on the language of
the petition, disputing its
constitutionality.
On Wednesday, Bennett
told the county to proceed.
No conflict
Bennett said the ballot
language had to be given to
Supervisor of Elections Kathy
Dent no later than Sept. 15 in
time to have the referendum
printed on the Nov. 7 ballot.
The commissioners re-
sponded Wednesday by
promptly passing an emer-
gency ordinance that com-
plied with the ruling.
County Commissioner
Shannon Staub said she had
not expected the matter to
come out this way.
"I really thought that some
of the language has a conflict
with the elections code," she
said. "But the judge said it
didn't, so we follow the judge."
In a press release Wednes-
day, the Sarasota Alliance for
Fair Elections said, "Judge
Bennett's decision validates
the right of citizens to vote
on the measure, and affirms
the legality of much of the
petition, which is the criter-
ion for placement on the
ballot."
The voting machine mea-

sure could have expensive
implications for the 14 other
Florida counties that like
Sarasota have invested
heavily in electronic touch-
screen voting machines that
do not produce paper ballot


receipts.
In 2001, the county spent
$4.7 million to buy 1,615
ES&S iVoltronic paperless
voting machines. Only 15
other counties rely exclusive-
ly on paperless equipment.


New ES&S equipment is
available with printers that
produce a paper trail, but it
isn't state certified.
Dent has defended the
paperless machines, but their
reliability has been called


into question by experts who
claim they can be tampered
with.

ruling can be accessed at the

County honors pollution prevention volunteers


STAFF REPORT
On Sept. 12, the Sarasota
County Commission honored
local volunteers for their
efforts in-pollution reduction
within the community and
proclaimed Sept. 18-24 Pol-
lution Prevention Week coun-
tywide.
During the commission
meeting, Environmental Serv-
ices Executive Director Rob
Patten recognized volunteers
Ken Heckert of the Rivendell
Homeowners Association,
Susan Chapman of the Hud-
son Bayou Neighborhood As-
sociation and Lindsey Kraus,
a 10th-grade student at Card-
inal Mooney High School, for
their pollution prevention
efforts.
Focus for the week of Sept.
18-24 will be on volunteer
work in four programs de-
signed to protect the area's
watersheds, promote sustain-
able communities and en-
hance economic develop-
ment by attracting green busi-
nesses with pollution-free
technology.
One of those programs is
the counv"'s Storm Drain
Marking Program, an educa-
tional campaign designed to
raise awareness about storm-
water pollution by teaching
residents that storm drains
are the main arteries to our
waterways.
Sarasota County Water Re-
sources staff has begun work-
ing with the Sarasota Bay
Estuary Program to organize
volunteers who mark storm
drains throughout the county.
The estuary program con-
tributed $1,000 to create spe-
cialized markers that read,
"This drains to Sarasota Bay."
Another program is Neigh-
borhood Environmental
Stewardship Team. The coun-
ty's NEST program helps citi-
zens understand and improve
local environmental condi-
tions. in their surrounding
watershed. Some 'of, their.
actiMfies' i improvifig 'Water'
quality include marking
storm drains, limiting fertiliz-
er use and restoring native
vegetation in and around
stormwater ponds.
Pollution Prevention Week'
will feature the following
activities:
At 9 a.m. Friday, Sept. 22,
volunteers will mark storm
drains in Indian Beach and
Sapphire Shores Beach.
At 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept.
23, Cardinal Mooney students
and Hudson Bayou residents
will mark drains in their com-
munities.
At9 a.m. Saturday, Sept.
23, residents in the Rivendell
subdivision of Osprey will
meet at the intersection of
Placid Lakes Drive and Scher-
er Way to restore habitat by
planting butterfly gardens
and creating underwater reef
balls for marine habitat.
Residents of the Hudson
Bayou basin, including the
neighborhoods of Hudson
Bayou, Laurel, Alta Vista, Ter-
race Gardens and Gillespie
Park, will also be marking
drains in their communities.
"This is an effective re-
minder for all of us to get in-
volved in sustainable activi-
ties, expand our current ef-
forts and commit to new
actions," said Sarasota Coun-
ty Environmental Specialist
Kelly Westover. "But it's im-
portant to emphasize that this
is not just a one-week effort
for Sarasota County."
Westover points out that
one of the county's most visi-
ble pollution program leaders
is Solid Waste, which has cre-
ated numerous residential

place in the outside world, but come as
something of a shock when they hap-
pen in Sarasota. .
Last weekend's earthquake was one of those
things, and so was the formation of a political
action committee- commonly referred to as a
PAC that tried to influence the outcome of a
county commission election.
Campaign finance reform is often talked
about on the national and state level, but
recent stories about a PAC that quietly
formed in our county should be a wake-up
call that raises questions and generates dis-
cussion about how we address this type of
electioneering in the future.
Innocuously titled Citizens for a Better
Sarasota, the group was financed by about 30
builders, developers and land-use attorneys

MARY KAYRUPPEL
COLUMNIST


I have threatened to write
about my "show biz" career,
but thought I'd give you all a
little time to -know the real
me, not the pretend me. But,
ready or not, here goes!
In the '80s I was working-
part-time in Orlando as what
is euphemistically referred to
as a "fragrance model." One
afternoon a representative
from the Jon Casablanca
modeling agency introduced
himself to me and asked if I
would be interested in work-
ing as an "Elizabeth Taylor
look-alike." It was a great
compliment and sure sound-
ed like a lot more fun to me
than spritzing unhappy cus-
tomers all day long, so I said,
"Sign me up."
Look-alikes had become a
real cottage industry in that
area, what with MGM and
Universal Studios being two
of the main attractions. In
fact, Orlando was referred to
as "Hollywood East," and just
about every convention had a
movie-themed event, so
impersonators were in de-
mand.
'My late husband was very
enthusiastic and supportive
about the whole idea. In fact,
he took my first "head shots"
with our 35mm camera.
Presenting my photos and.
filling out an application with
the Casablanca agency was
the beginning of what was to
be a 15-year career.
My first booking was
appearing at the grand open-
ing of a new housing develop-
ment in Melbourne. It was at
this event that I learned it was
very important to be ready to
answer crazy questions. One
lady remarked that she bet I
didn't look like Liz when I got
up in the morning. I respond-
ed, "No, and neither does
she!"
I got to work with so many
interesting and talented peo-
ple, some maybe more talent-
ed than those they were
impersonating.
One of my favorites was
Jack Kelly, who was the Jimmy
Cagney look-alike. Jack, who
was in his 70s, told us that he
had met Jimmy Cagney on a
street in New York City in the
1930s and Cagney had asked
him to be his double and
stuntman. Jack did just that


until Cagney retired to his
farm in Connecticut in the
1980s.
Jack and his wife had a
whole room in their home
devoted to Cagney memora-
bilia. Jack was a wonderful
man and a great mentor for
me getting started in the busi-
ness.
Another highlight of my
career was a movie in which I
appeared called "Vampire
Wars." It was filmed at Uni-
versal Studios in Orlando. The
stars were Maximilian SchelU,
Amanda Plummer, Chris-
tppher Sarandon and John
Englund (Freddie from Elm
Street).
The author of the story
insisted I use a cane as Liz was
using one at the time. I wasn't
too crazy about that, but oth-
erwise I loved every minute of
the experience, which lasted
two days for my scenes,
which were filmed at Sea
World.
The most interesting and
surprising celebrity I had the
opportunity of meeting and
working with was Eddie
Fisher.
In 1999 his book, "Been
There, Done That," was pub-
lished and he was doing a
book signing at Border's
Bookstore. Throughout the
"signing" I could see how he
had attracted the likes of
Debby and Liz. Despite the
fact that after their marriages
ended they crucified him, he
was an absolute gentleman
and very sweet guy.
I'd heard how egotistical
and unpleasant he was -
totally untrue that evening.
He was very congenial to all of
the people lined up to meet
him and have him autograph
their books.
In the background, some
of his old recordings were
being played and he sang
along with them. He was still
in great voice. However, when
I tried to interact with him, he
would look at someone else
and talk to them. He didn't
seem to want to go along with
the "joke."
In response to a compli-
ment I gave him about how
great he looked, he respond-
ed that he was just an "old
man."
His wife at that time, an
Asian woman named Betty,
took several pictures of us
and got my name and address
and said she would send
them to me. She was very nice
to me.
When I got home and read
what he had inscribed in my
copy of the book, I was totally
shocked because he had
seemed so indifferent to me.
He wrote something most
complimentary and signed it,

who timed its actions so the election was over
before any of their names were. released
through campaign finance reporting require-
ments.
Furthermore, its TV ads were programmed
so there was little opportunity to refute gross
misrepresentations before the Sept. 5 prima-
ry. The ads targeted commission candidate
Joe Barbetta, who is known for his support of
careful growth and concern for the environ-
ment. Yet the ads portrayed him as just the
opposite.
The formation of this PAC was perfectly
legal. Federal and state laws permitted the
group to organize for "electioneering com-
munication," a term that obviously didn't
limit the message it communicated to any-
thing resembling the truth.
There is something eerily undemocratic


about laws that allow PAC supporters to con-
tribute $5,000 for each election cycle (prima-
ry and general), while ordinary citizens who
make contributions in our local races are
capped at $200 for each one. Where are we
headed?
.What we also learned in our latest election
experience is PAC contributors can write per-
sonal checks of up to $5,000 plus $5,000
checks on each company they own thus
allowing some individuals to wield ahugely dis-
proportionate amount of political influence..
With the negative and downright un-
truthful "communication" this local PAC
espoused, it's questionable whether the con-
tributors would have participated if their
names had been-made public prior to the
election.
Sarasota is a home-rule county with its


own charter. Questions should be asked
about whether there is a way to limit this type
of stealth campaigning while still preserving
our rights to participate in an electoral
process we all cherish as uniquely American.
PACs are indisputably legal. Could they be
required to publish the names of contribu-
tors in a more timely manner so that when
legitimate questions arise about their activi-
ties they can be held publicly accountable
prior to an election? We hope so.
A political action committee's organizers
and contributors should have no hesitation
about linking their names with something or
someone they financially support, whether
it's better schools or a candidate. But they
might not choose to be identified with misin-
formation and outright lies.

LETTERS .... OUR .e':


Dems need to drop Dean for credibility


Editor:
Howard Dean of late has toned down the shrill nature of his
rhetoric. Could it be because he desperately wants to be taken
seriously?
He is quite critical of the Bush administration and the con-
duct of the "War on Terrorism"; this from a man with no mili-
tary service. When Dean was a 21-year-old draft-eligible youth
he decided that the war in Vietnam was not for him; so, armed
with X-rays of his back he confronted the doctors at Fort
Hamilton in Brooklyn. The doctors there declared him unfit for
military service due to a condition medically known as
spondylolisthesis.
Howard then high-tailed it for Colorado. There he enjoyed
-skiing the slopes of Aspen. To supplement his income he
labored at pouring concrete. For a youth diagnosed as having
unfused vertebrae it seems it did not prevent him from enjoy-
ing demanding physical sport or engaging in equally demand-
ing labor.
This is the man who speaks for the Democratic Party. To
restore honor and integrity to the party, true Democrats must
dump Howard and all he stands for.

Celebrate U.S.
Constitution

Editor:
Sunday, Sept. 17, begins
the national celebration of
Constitution Week.
The week-long commem-
oration of America's most
important document is one
of the country's least-known
official observances. Here in
Florida, Gov. Jeb Bush has
issued a proclamation desig-
nating Constitution Week, as
have the Sarasota County
commissioners.
This year marks the 219th
anniversary of the signing of
the Constitution on Sept. 17,
1787, in Philadelphia. The
words the framers of the
Constitution penned on four
pages more than two cen-
turies ago are as alive and
vibrant today as they were the


day they were written.
Our Constitution stands as
a testament to the tenacity of
Americans throughout histo-
ry to maintain their liberties
and freedom, and represents
our great heritage.
It is important to reflect on
the many benefits of our
Constitution and express
gratitude for the privilege of
being an American in a coun-
try that functions under the
oldest Constitution still in
active use today and to reaf-
firm the ideals the framers of
our Constitution had more
than two centuries ago.
I, along with other mem-
bers of the DAR, believe it is
important to observe this
week and share the informa-
tion with others. Find a copy
of our Constitution, take a
book about it out of the
library and read it, and talk to


your children and grandchil-
dren about this great docu-
ment.
More than ever, Americans
today need to be more aware
of their heritage as we are fac-
ing one of the most difficult
threats in our history during
this war on terror.
Thousands of our young
men and women in uniform
today 'are sacrificing to
defend our belief, spelled out
in our Constitution, in the
right of freedom for all peo-
ple.

No cure for
constituent
amnesia
Editor:
It's that time of year again
when the election billboards
are in bloom and love and
promises fill the air. Our land-
scape is infested with names,
offices and slogans that we
are to process as we go zip-
ping by.
Myriad names on an ocean
of signs longingly beckoning
us in the droning tones of a
mystical hypnotist: "Vote for
me, vote for me. I'll end
poverty. I'll stop the conflict in
Iraq. I'll be the guiding light to
end world terror. I'll lower
your taxes. I'll build better
schools. I'll make sure you
win the lottery. Vote for me.
When I clap my hands you
will vote for me."
Of course, once in office


they all come down with that
reoccurring political condi-
tion, "constituent amnesia."
Poof, they've forgotten who
we are, their promises go
unkept. From out of nowhere,
they spring an agenda on us
that was never hinted at in
their glossy brochure. "Good
grief doctor, we've created a
monster!"
Unfortunately, there is no
Viagra for voter expectations
and the E.D. of politics soon
sets in. Our budding relation-
ship a distant memory. Our
affection to lie dormant until
that time when the eternal
cycle reappears anew and
once again, the billboards are
in bloom.

Mudslinging is
grounds for 'no' vote
Editor:
The preliminary primary
election process was, at best,
a' bust, as exemplified by
many of the candidates from
both parties who provided us
with a rather disgusting nega-
tive TV advertising program.
Someone mentioned the
apathetic response by the
voters. Were not the voters
justified in their passiveness
given the caliber and out of
context speeches delivered by
various candidates?
It was really shameful and,
in many instances, complete-
ly lacking in positive qualities.
There is an old adage in
political circles, which states
that: "When candidates begin

LANG CAPASSO
GUEST COLUMNIST.


It's hard to believe, but I
received notice that my grad-
uating class of Venice High is
celebrating its 45th anniver-
sary this year. That's right,
folks, I graduated from high
school in 1961.
I have never been to the
reunion, even though I lived in
Venice until sixyears ago, when
I moved to Englewood. Really
no reason. I arrived at the
school from Germany in
November of my senior year,
and left right after school to
attend the University of Flor-
ida. You can see I did not have a
lot of time to get acquainted.
According to the letter,
there were 120 in my graduat-
ing class; all their names and
addresses were listed. I have
gone 45 years thinking there
were only 109 in my class.
Math never was one of my


strong subjects.
I did a little study on where
my class is now living.
More than half still live in
Florida: 29 in Venice, four in
Englewood, two in North
Port, two in Punta Gorda,
nine in Sarasota and 17 scat-
tered throughout the state. As
you can see, my class did not
go very far from home.
To be honest, I would have
thought more would be in
Englewood, as all the Engle-
wood high school students
went to Venice High School
until 1978, when Lemon Bay
High opened.
There are still many Venice
High School graduates in
Englewood, though not neces-
sarily from my year. Tom
Dignam, Margaret and Bud
Adorjan, Fred Beck, Esther
Horton, Jim Perrin and Billy
Nichol are a few who have
come from Englewood and
returned to make it their home.
In my class, 13 could not be
located and six have passed
away. I thought the passing
away of 5 percent of a class in
their early 60s was a little high.
I was also surprised that
more than 10 percent dropped
off the face of the Earth. That
left 32 percent having moved
away- that we know of.
Sad to say, but I have not
kept in contact with any of my


classmates. In scanning the list
of 120 names, I was hard
pressed to even recognize
many of the names of my fel-
low classmates. I could only
vaguely describe 19 of them. I
attribute that to the fact I am an
Army brat who attended 13
schools between the first and
12th grades. Maybe my gradu-
ating class did not move very
much, but I can assure you my
family did.
Looking back on my Venice
High School days, it is more of a
blur than a reality. We graduat-
ed in the old gym, and the prin-
cipal's name was Davis. That is
who the football field is named
after. Both my son and daugh-
ter graduated from there, but I
don't hear them talking about it
too much either.
The only thing I have heard
about the old campus lately is
that a developer wants to buy
the land for condos and the
campus may move off the
island. It is a pretty old school
and could use some type of
revamping.
As I said, it is all a blur after
all these years. My high
school is Lemon Bay High
School now, and that is how it
is going to stay. Go Mantas!

al manager of the Englewood

much ground to stand on."
My wife and I are newcom-
ers to Florida, commencing
in April 2004.
We are not yet familiar
with the various candidates,
and still aren't, other than
what they didn't do, can't do
or won't do.
It is my hope that the can-
didates will raise their level of


performance, and tell us their
opinions, ideas-and beliefs
about the positive things they
believe are important issues
to all citizens and what
they propose to do about it if
elected.
For example: minimum
wage, affordable housing,
education upgrade, home
insurance, affordable medical


insurance coverage and more
law enforcement personnel.
And please don't forget
that it is incumbent on the
elected officials to respect the
dignity of every human being.
Good luck to the candi-
dates so elected.

No to the Reds. I'm calling about the Reds and their
demands for a new stadium or replacement or improvement. I
just object to their threats of leaving town. I seriously question
the claims that there are financial benefits, and I just think that
they ought to do what the Dolphins did back in the 90s -'
maybe they could get private financing by selling their skybox-
es or VIP seats or whatever. I know that that's what they had to
do then, and perhaps that's something that they could look at
now. But I am seriously opposed to sports subsidies. .


One, two three. With re-
gard to our immigration
problems, here would be my
suggestion to fix it once and
for all. My plan isn't original,
but rather, a conglomeration
of ideas that have been tossed
around but never put in any
chronological order. About
the 12 million-plus people
who are already in this coun-
try illegally, in the past our
government, along with cor-
porate America, has consis-
tently looked the other way
,whenever it suited its own
selfish agenda. One really
can't blame a person who
lives in poverty most of his life
for wanting to have what we
have. That's just human na-
ture, wouldn't you agree? And
now, for years, we have toler-
ated their arrival in this coun-
try. It would make sense to me
that we have kind of let this
happen, some of us to blame
more than the others, but
nonetheless, it still happened.
So my first order would be
that every illegal immigrant

charmer and I will always
hold a warm spot in my heart
for him.


would have six months to get
a photo ID and a Social
Security card. At the end of
the six months' period, any-
one who has not done so
would be in violation of our
country's immigration laws
and would be deported.
Second, any employer who
hires an illegal alien without
both cards would be fined
$500 a day for every day that
person worked for them or a
flat $5,000 fine for first offens-
es, or whichever is greater.
Also, anyone supplying com-
fort or housing would be sib-
ject to the same type of fines.
With this plan and the
enforcement of the law, there
would be no reason for future
immigrants,to come iere as
there would be no place for
them to work or live.
Therefore, there would be no
need to spend large amounts
of money to further secure
our own borders, which I
might add, hasn't worked in
the past. Well, there it is, quite


simple. I know it will need a
little tweaking, but we've got
to start somewhere as this
problem is not going to go
away on its own.
Bad move. Why is it that no
one in their right mind would
ever step in front of a speed-
ing car that is approaching
them, but they don't give it a
second thought about step-
ping behind a car that is back-
ing out of a parking lot? May-
be they're invincible. They
don't seem to realize that the
drivers cannot see them.
Ready to march. I am in my
80s and I marched downtown
severalyears ago with a group
that thought going to war was
the wrong step to take. I do
not even know the name of
that group. I just knew that an
invasion of Iraq at that time
was wrong and joined them
in the protest. It. is time that
we march again. Are there any
younger people 20 to 60 years
old who can organize a new,
weekly march? I don't have
-the energy to organize, but I
will join you every day in a
march. I write letters to Wash-
ington every week, and I en-
courage others to do so also,
but please, let's march in Ven-
ice and save young American
lives. We .can let Washington
know how we feel about this
tragic war.

Holiday Inn under new ownership


*liMiff


BY ROGER BUTTON
'BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

The LeBlanc family of
Venice, which operates Best
Southwestern Motels Inc. of
Venice, purchased for $10
million the 158-room Holiday.
Inn Venice, 455 North U.S. 41
Bypass, increasing its total
motel rooms to 259 in Venice.-
Company president Ber-
nard LeBlanc stated the
Holiday Inn is in good condi-
tion, and will be continually
upgraded as the company
does with its other Venice
properties: the 37-room Ver-
anda Inn & Cafe ofVenice, 625
South Tamiami Trail on the
island, acquired in 1997, and
the Days Inn, 1710 South
Tamiami Trail at Shamrock
Boulevard, acquired in 1998.
The Holiday Inn occupies
part of the 5.25-acre property,
which LeBlanc said has excel-


lent road frontage.
"Yes, there is room to build
another hotel," he said. "It's
not on my drawing .board at
the moment, but it's not out
of the question."
With two hotels planned
for Albee Road in Nokomis, a
Holiday Inn Express nearing
completion at the Jaca-
randa/Interstate 75 inter-
change and more planned for
the North Venice district,
there is a possibility of further
expansion or partnering in
the future, he said.
LeBlanc came to Venice 20
years ago to retire at 40. His
son, Steven, went into the
motel business. It fascinated
LeBlanc, who decided to set
up the family company and
acquire properties.
It is a total Venice family
business. Wife Linda is com-
pany secretary; son Steven'is
vice president; and his wife,


Dawn, a CPA, is administra-
tor.
Currently they have 60
employees at the three proper-
ties, but expect to increase this
to 75 at the start of season.
Holiday Inn Venice is the
only full-service hotel within
Venice city limits, and Sue
Carron has been the manager
since 1981.
The company trades as
Your Lodging Connection for
marketing on the Internet
and at the Venice movie the-
aters.
LeBlanc's favorite charity is
the Special Olympics and his
company is a major sponsor
of the annual Shark's Tooth
Festival held in April on the

Marketing Venice at Orlando trade show


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

What is happening behind
the scenes to promote Venice
to more stores? A great deal, I
found out when visiting the
International Council of
Shopping Centers Conven-
tion Trade Show in Orlando.
Promoting Venice and
South Sarasota County was
Merritt Realty Resources
Corporation of West Venice
Avenue, Venice. At the booth
were broker Terry Purdy and
colleague Patrick Jaehne with
Charles Palmeri of Oaks
Realty in Nokomis enthusias-
tically fielding inquiries from
visiting franchisers, brokers
and potential clients. Indica-
tions were the show, in its
third and final day, was a
resounding success.
Discussing projects inVen-
ice with some of the leading
players, Purdy and Jaehne
were arousing interest in a
yet-to-be announced new
development east of U.S. 41.
Palmeri was promoting a


restaurant location at the
gateway to Venice.
Equity One Realty of Mi-
ami Realtors were identifying
potential tenants for the
spaces available at Venice
Plaza on the bypass and Ven-
ice Shopping Center on the
island. Commodore Realty of
South Florida was filling
spaces recently vacated and
other opportunities in Bird
Bay Plaza on the bypass.
At the Michael Saunders &
Company booth I talked with
Dennis Dahm, commercial
group director, a longtime
Venice resident. He was excit-
ed at the inquiries received
during the show, which were
keeping his primarily Sara-
sota County Realtors busy.
The Caldwell Banker team
led by Jerry Lamb, regional di-
rector, was very positive about
the show and opportunities
presented for Sarasota County
future business development
Venice Commons Shop-
ping Center on East Venice
Avenue continues to expand
as the Primerica Group of


Tampa encourages interest
from potential tenants. The
Sembler Group has availabili-
ty at Jacaranda Crossings,
which is home to Target,
Beall's and Staples at Tamiami
Trail by Jacaranda Boulevard.
Vacant properties in Pine-
brook Plaza were being tout-
ed by Icorr Properties Inc. The
planned Shoppes ofVenice in
front of the Wal-Mart Super-
center on Tamiami Trail,
South Venice; were marketed
by Orlando-based Real Prop-
erty Specialists.
It all adds up to the fact
that South Sarasota County is
part of the future growth of
this state. Venice, South Ven-
ice, Nokomis and the sur-
rounding area will add more
fashionable and necessity
shopping, fast food and fine
dining, more entertainment
options and medical service
opportunities for the. current
and future population.

Old Nokomis is the feature
theme chosen by Dave Ar-
buckle, owner of the new
Curry Creek Cafe opening at
920 South Tamiami Trail,
Nokomis, near Colonia Lane. ,
In the bar counter, around I
the dining room and on walls
throughout the restaurant he
is displaying photographs of
old Nokomis and Venice, a
throwback to the '20s, '30s
and '50s.
"It's going to be an
American cafe .serving com-
fort food, real stick-to-your-
ribs kind. of food," said Ar-
buckle.
Assisting in both the
kitchen and restaurant, Rofie,
his Indonesian wife, will
make and serve her own egg
rolls, curries and Chinese
foods. With 40 seats and two
tables outside for the smok-
ing area, the cafe will open
from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
and 4:30 to 9 p.m. Monday
through Saturday.
The building is having a
total facelift, including re-
moving signs on the roof.
Arbuckle plans to hire 10 to 12
people and has scheduled the
opening for Oct. 1.

Waiting for a sign
Everything is ready, so
branch manager Barbara
Macy and her three associates
are planning to open the
doors of the new Bank of
Venice branch, 1720 E. Venice
Ave., today (Friday) or early
next week.
"We're just waiting for the


signage," said Mack Wilcox,
president and CEO.
The new 3,500-square-foot
office with drive-up facilities
was chosen because of its
proximity to the expanding
residential area and to serve
people who do not want to go
to the larger 8,000-square-
foot island location. A formal
opening is planned for No-
vember.
"It's just wonderful to have
another face. in Venice, and
we plan to continue expand-
ing with quite a few more
locations," said Wilcox. Call

VYC,1 he first.55years..
What began' as an training
idea by Past Commodore
John McLaughlin developed.
into a unique history on DVD
for one Venice's most promi-
nent clubs.
Venice Yacht Club mem-
bers undertook 'weeks of
research, visited Venice's ar-
chives for assistance from
Dorothy Korwek and assem-
bled all the detail to produce a
history of the VYC.
It begins in 1951 when a
few club enthusiastic Venice
sailors met in Gibb's Tarpon
Center Resort, near the
Crow's Nest restaurant on
Tarpon Center Drive. From
those humble beginnings
they formed the club, acquir-
ing land to build their own
premises in 1960. Commo-
dore George Pickhardt in
1996 made the decision to
enlarge it and the following
year Commodore John Latta
broke ground on the new
extensions. Residents will
find this 32-minute docu-
mentary, "Venice Yacht Club
the first 55 years," intro-
duced by Commodore Taylor
MacPherson and narrated by
McLaughlin, interesting view-
ing. Copies are available for $3
by calling 488-7708.
Scott follows
colleagues to Insignia
Making a challenging
move from Colonial Bank in
Venice to the new Insignia
Bank in downtown Sarasota,
Tish Scott is that bank's
senior vice president and re-
tail manager.
"It's my job to get every-
thing up and going: the
branches, products and hir-
ing office personnel," said'
Scott.
Insignia intends to have


three offices in the Sarasota
market within two years, then
head to South County.
A SunTrust employee for
23 years, Scott moved to
Premier five years ago; then it
was acquired by Colonial. At
Insignia she has joined for-
mer Colonial colleagues
Kevin Daut and Tina Arnold.
Scott will remain a No-
komis resident, continuing in
her fifth year as president of
the Laurel Civic Association.
She is assisting in the organi-
zation of the Manatee Com-
munity College 50 Year Gala
Black Tie Celebration at the

Miami Avenue
Friday strolls
Starting the season of
downtown evening strolls,
merchants on West Miami
Avenue are launching their
new "Meet Me on Miami" Fri-
day evening shopping events
on Friday, Oct. 13.
Their Antiques Row to-
gether with restaurants, fash-
ion and accessory stores will
open on the second Friday of
the month for a themed
evening stroll.
"It's a very different feel
from West Venice Avenue and
we invite everyone to come
and enjoy themselves with
the street and store entertain-
ment we are planning," said
Jeff O'Berry, owner of the
antique and vintage retro
item store Nifty Nic Nacs, 219
W. Miami Ave.
Store is closing
After several weeks of inde-
cision, Appliance Depot &
More, 901 South U.S. 41
Bypass, is finally closing.
According to a spokesper-
son, the final date will be
determined by however long
it takes to sell everything.
Apparently there are no plans
to open another store in
Venice at this time.

County considers re-regulating

road building rules


Man arrested after bomb joke


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

It's really all about keeping
infrastructure in line with
development.
That was the crux of Clarke
Davis' presentation to Sara-
sota County commissioners
Tuesday.
Davis, general manager of
public works planning, came
before the board with Exec-
utive Director James Harriott
to recommend changes to
concurrency regulations and
related amendments to the
comprehensi,'ipff! i' mlM,
Simply put, Davis' and Har-
riott tried to show the commis-
sioners how and why a road
would require an upgrade (due
to the impact of the construc-
tion of a nearby housing devel-
opment, for example), who
would pay for it and what their
share would be.
Current statutes say that:
A developer has the right
to satisfy his or her responsi-
bility for an impacted road-
way by making a "proportion-
ate fair share payment" if the
road improvement is funded
in a capital improvement pro-
gram.
And a "proportionate fair
share mitigation payment"
may be credited for impact
fees. Reconstruction costs are
not eligible for funding with
impact fees, however, and the
eligible credit would only

cover the cost of additional
lanes.
In October and November
staff will be requesting autho-
rization to advertise concur-
rency and road impact fee
amendments consistent with
these requirements. This
must be done before the Dec.
1 deadline.
Several factors come into
play when establishing
whether development is con-
current with local infrastruc-
ture, Davis said. One is dis-
cerning just what the impact
area is. Another is analyzing
peak .traffic in the ,impact
area. In preparation for pro-
posed amendments to cur-
rent regulations, staff will be
seeking the board's support in
sharply defining and updat-
ing these factors, as well as
identifying "significant local
roads," used for the collection
and analysis of impact area
information.

STAFF REPORT'


A simple "Thank you"
would have been fine, but
that wasn't good enough for a
Venice man with a smart
mouth.
Instead, when the Beall's
Department Store greeter
wished him a "nice day" on
his way out of the store
Sunday, Matthew Jankovsky
replied, "I'm having a bad day
- I just planted a bomb."


: Long story short, Jankov-
sky, 34, 200 block Snyder
Drive, Venice, was charged
with filing a false bomb re-
port, a felony crime. Bond
was set at $2,500.
Here's how it unfolded.
Sheriff's deputies went to
Beall's, 4251 Tamiami Trail,
after an employee called and
reported a bomb threat.
The store had evacuated
all customers and employees
as police arrived. Deputies


immediately blocked off the
northeast section of the park-
ing lot.
Police searched the store
and found nothing like a
bomb.
The surveillance video
showed Jankovsky coming
into the store through the
-handicapped door without
anything in his hands. He'
walked over to the men's de-
partment and bought a pair
of pants with his debit card.


On the way out of the store,
the greeter told him to, "Have a
nice day" and the rest is history.
Jankovsky got into his car
and left the area.
Deputies tracked him
down and went to his home.
Jankovsky admitted going
to the store and buying a pair
of pants.
He denied saying anything
about planting a bomb.
The surveillance video
track tells a different story.

beaten streak to start the 2006
season didn't go out with the
boom of a well-hit spike.
Instead, the final nail was
driven in with a dump from
Venice setter Nickie Halbert,
which no Charlotte player
could get to.


It was just as effective, if a
bit less flashy.
Top-ranked Venice kept its
own unbeaten streak alive,
sweeping Charlotte 25-7, 25-
21, 25-17 to captured the top
seed in the district tourna-
ment next month.
But the Tarpons (10-1),
who entered the contest
ranked No. 3 in 5A, were left
to lick their wounds.


"It was exactly what I
expected," Charlotte coach
Nanci Daniel said. "I knew it
would be a really tough
match."
The Tarpons got an early
glimpse of what was in store
on the very first point as the
Indians (9-0) made a remark-
able play to save a blistering
spike by Kat Godina, and
went on to win the point.
When Natalie Gaudreau
served seven straight points
to give the Indians a 16-5
lead, the first game was out
of Charlotte's reach.


Charlotte's dreams of top-
pling Venice had to remain
only dreams.
"We made mistakes we
shouldn't have made," Godina
said. "Strong teams stay to-
gether mentally. But we
learned we can hang with
them."
The matchup of unbeat-
ens didn't seize the atten-
tion of Venice coach Brian
Wheatley so much.
"This is preseason for us,"
said Wheatley, who coached
the Indians to the state title
last season. "Our goal is not


to be the best in the area, but
the best in the state."
For now, the Indians will
have to settle for the best
team in the area. .Ashley
Graf led Venice with 12 kills,
and Gaudreau had another
nine as Halbert did a great
job of spreading the ball
around.
"We played a really good
game," Halbert said. "We were
both undefeated, so we came
in with a lot of intensity."

The Venice High boys swim
team may be short on num-
bers, but the Indians are long
on talent.
Venice stayed unbeaten in
dual, tri and quad matches
by winning two more Thurs-
day. The Indians scored 69
points to defeat Cardinal
Mooney (53) and Booker (8)
in a tri-meet at the Venice

Boys golfers lose by a stroke


Indians hope to continue


success against Charlotte


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

For an early season game,
they don't get any bigger than
this.
Venice at Charlotte is not
only just a great backyard
rivalry, but it will have a lot to
say about who goes to the
state playoffs and who stays
at home.
Venice has dominated the
series recently, having won
the last three meetings. The
Indians have won those
games in the trenches, out-
muscling the Tarpons.
But Charlotte is improved
this season, as its 2-1 record
would indicate.
Venice heads into Friday
night's 7:30 contest with a
record of 0-3..
This will be a Class 5A
District 11 opener for both
teams.
Charlotte's wing T offense
has been effective-both on
the ground and in the air.
The Tarpons have shown bal-
ance, averaging 136 yards per
game on the ground and 144
in the air.
The backfield of Kyle Pro-
vencal and Nick Alexandrou
is formidable.
Provencal rushed for 115
yards last week against a
tough Immokalee defense,
while Alexandrou has proven
to be a quality dual-threat
back, with five catches for 100
yards and a touchdown, as
well as 54 rushing yards.
Making Charlotte go is


quarterback Matt Kautz. 'In
two wins, he passed for four
TDs and no interceptions, but
in last week's loss to Immok-
alee, he threw no TD passes
and had three picked offs.
Sean Cord has not only
been the team's most produc-
tive receiver with seven catch-
es for 177 yards and two TDs,
but he also has two intecep-
tions at defensive back.
Charlotte had difficulty
defending the run against
Immokalee, giving up 340
yards on the ground.
Running the ball happens
to be Venice's bread and
butter.
Al Mitchell has been the
main man with 303 yards.
Jimmy Laurie has 157. Each
went over the 100-yard mark
last week against Miami
Pace. The Indians also wel-
come back another threat -
Paul Costanzo who sat out
last week with a sore hand.
Gerry Hunek will get the
start at quarterback for the
second week in a row. The
guy who started the first two
games Kyle Callahan will
be available.
The Venice offensive line
will be challenged to domi-
nate the Charlotte defensive
front. Long sustained drives
that eat up clock and produce
points is aVenice specialty.
It's worked in recent years.
Venice coach Nick Coleman
would like to see the trend
continue.

Against a backdrop of in-
clement, chastising weather,
the Venice High. boys varsity
golf team lost its perfect rec-
ord at Mission Valley
Country Club Wednesday
afternoon, succumbing by a
single shot to Lakewood
Ranch, 88-89.
However, it was far from
doom and gloom on the fair-
ways for "Team Tarala," which
now stands at 8-1.
Success against Charlotte
High School (91) and River-
view (92) give the Indians an
8-1 record heading into Thurs-
day's match with Sarasota
High.
Despite a disappointing


show at the seventh where,
his short game deserted him,
Chris Dobitsch maintained
his composure and struck a
flighted second shot to the
ninth green to stay in con-
tention to card a 20. Much
to his relief, his foursome
was one of the few to escape
the ensuing downpour.
As has become the norm
for the Indians, other stand-
outs included Eric Dobitsch
(23), Billy Stevens (24) and
Kyle Phillips (24). Also, with
his 22, Timmy Garafalo will
hope his game is back on
track.
All in all, another good
day at the office for the
Indians. As the season pro-
gresses, they all know which
way the wind's blowing.

Two Venice Vikings youth
football teams traveled to
Sarasota last Saturday to take
on fledgling Suncoast Bucs
squads at Booker High.
The Bucs only have teams
in the Junior Midget and
Midget divisions. That meant
the other Viking squads had
the day off.
Venice earned a split
with the Bucs, -as the Cru-
saders won at the Junior
Midget level while the War-
riors lost at the Midget level
of play.

The Crusader offense
moved the ball at will. Ojeda

well, highlighted by Ojeda's
punt return for touchdown.
The Crusader defense
proved strong, allowing just

East Dearborn project gets green light from commission


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


It passed in an instant, but
it was a long time in coming.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners unanimously approv-
ed an agreement Tuesday
with the Florida Department
of Transportation and autho-
rized the long-awaited reno-
vation of approximately 1
mile of East Dearborn Street.
Improvements will include


the construction of four, 11-
foot travel lanes, 4-foot bicy-
cle lanes and 5-foot sidewalks
on both sides of the road. In
addition, there will be road-
way lighting, landscape me-
dians, curbs and gutters, a
new bridge over Gottfried
Creek and the installation of
stormwater pipes, inlet struc-
tures and stormwater ponds.
County Commissioner
Shannon Staub has been
waiting a long time to see the


project get off the ground.
"When I was elected back
in 1996, Dearborn was one of
my projects that I wanted to
see widened," Staub said.
'And here we are in 2006.
They told me back then it
would take about 10 years to
get the road built. Now I'm
hoping they get it done before
my term's up."
The project has been left
sliding for many years because
of the lack of promised govem-


ment funds, she added.
"We did a joint planning
agreement with the FDOT
(state Department of Trans-
portation) thinking that it
would make things easier, be-
cause we were getting some
federal money," Staub said.
'And it didn't make things
easier. It just slowed them
down because of bureaucrat-
ic red tape. We've talked about
it so many times. Today, it was
another approval. Hopefully,


we'll soon see construction."
That construction will
happen once the board ap-
proves a contractor for the
job, hopefully in October,
according to Bob Reddy, pub-
lic works communications
associate with the county.
From that point, roadwork
would be set to begin within
60 days.
"The project could be
turning dirt by the middle of
December," Reddy said.


COUNTY from Page lA

board of county commission-
ers, having said that it will not
go on the ballot until March,"
said Hammett.
"City staff will begin work
immediately towards getting
a JPA with county staff.
"All of the commissioners
agreed that if it became a
problem, they would insert
themselves into a solution."

Make your house a lean,





mean, selling machine


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDiTOR

Homebuyers will pay more
for "their" house than they
will for "your" house.
Preparing your home to
earn top dollar in the current
buyers' real estate market is
an art practiced by designers
who are called home stagers.
Such professionals can make
your' house more saleable in
just a few hours. Profes-
sionally staged homes sell
faster and often bring more
money in the process.
One local stager is Mary J.
Brady who worked her magic
recently on the home of John
and Marianne Wass in South
Venice. They will be moving to
Ohio and have listed their
well-maintained home two-
bedroom, two-bath home
with Michael Saunders Real-
tor IngridY. Blokzijl.
That the 1998-era home is
move-in ready was not nearly
so obvious until Brady work-
ed her brand of magic.. Before
and after pictures accompany
this article and show what can
be done in a matter of about,
three hours and with little or
no expenditure of additional
money other than the hourly
cost of the stager.
"If they were staying, I'd
have done it a bit differently,"
Brady said.
Brady also helps home-
owners rearrange existing
homes to improve the look
and livability.
In staging a home for'
resale, the goal is to help the
potential buyer visualize their
own things in the house. If
you have collections every-
where, no matter how won-
derful the objects might be,
the buyer is likely to be con-
fused. Most have little imagi-
nation and will be caught up
in the things they are seeing
rather than the house they
might otherwise consider.
buying, Brady said.
"Remove all the acces-
sories," she said as we went*
into the master bedroom.,
Within minutes, the room
was stripped to its bones.
Remaining, a large chair and'
ottoman, queen-sized bed
with surrounding bookshelf
headboard and cabinets,:
dresser, a large older TV on a
stand and a tall chest of draw-
ers near the entrance to the
dressing room and master
bath.
"The newer flat screen TVs
are all right to leave in a
room," Brady said. 'At least
this one won't be seen when
someone enters."
A large treadmill was re-
moved from the room, imme-
diately adding to the feeling of
space.
To brighten the room, a
new white bedspread was put
on the bed and several pillows
were added, some "bor-
rowed" from elsewhere in the
house.
Brady said most people'
usually have more than
enough of the items she
might need for staging. In this
case, the bedspread was pur-.
chased and some drapery
"scarves" and a few items
were loaned to the homeown-
er.
"When the house sells, I
will take them back and can
use them for another house,"
Brady said.
Playing up the mauve color
scheme of the bedroom,
Brady placed a giant ceramic
shell on one side of the book-
case headboard and a cluster
of mauve-hued barnacles on'

softness to the space.


the opposite end. A garnet-
colored glass bird and small
ceramic flower bouquet com-
pleted the display on that
shelf. Brady moved one small
picture to a new place on the
wall opposite the lanai and
took most of the other wall
ornamentation down to pack
away. .All that remained on
the walls were two small
shelves to hold special items.
Three small candle holders
were placed atop one of the
tall bureaus and two vases
were placed on one of the
shelves. The finishing touch
was a chenille blanket artfully
draped over the large black
chair and ottoman, immedi-
ately downplaying the impact
of so much black in a room
that otherwise featured more
delicate hues.
In the master bath, she'
refolded the bath towels and
tied them with bits of lace to
accent a new lace shower cur-
tain.
The lanai also got a new
look. Silk plants that had been
scattered here and there all
over the area were clustered
at one end near a chaise
lounge, which was left in its
corner location. A round din-
ing table and four chairs were
simply moved about 18 inch-
es closer to the kitchen to give
more space to the relaxation
comer and to make it handier
for serving. A coordinating
rocker was moved and so was
a round table that was placed
next to the rocker. A love seat
in the remaining comer was
simply turned at an angle. A
coffee table and two facing
chairs turned that area into a
conversation area. The settee
was draped with a throw. Two
pillows were added to freshen
the look. Tabletops were
cleared. Within 20 minutes


the lanai seemed twice as
large. The house had seem-
ingly grown.
Brady did the most work in
the living area, moving nearly
every piece of furniture and
removing several large paint-
ings that over-powered the
space.
Again, all the accessories
were removed from the space
so that the stager could begin
with a clean slate.
When she arrived in the
morning, the large el-shaped
sectional sofa had its back to
the entrance. With oversized
pictures on the walls and a
narrow path to the dining
room, the space was nearly
claustrophobic.
"When you have a big win-
dow like that, you don't need
a big picture next to it too,"
Brady said.
After she rearranged the
furniture, the corner sofa
faced the entrance to the liv-
ing room, inviting people to
enter and sit awhile. The
media center was placed at
an angle in the far comer at
the front of the house, soften-
ing the shape of the room
with its angular placement.
On the wall opposite the
sofa, Brady hung a painting
above a small table and
placed a silk tree to the right
and a wicket chair to the left,
creating a pleasant little read-
ing area.
In the dining area, she
stripped the shelves of two
cabinets and added a leaf to
the dining room table before
placing it on the diagonal
within the space, drawing
people toward the area by the
placement. The homeowners'
collection of bird statues was
carefully placed on the

Please see HOUSE, 11 B


Halfway to completion, the sectional sofa has been moved to a more inviting location and
accessories have been stripped to a minimum in the adjoining kitchen area.

Condom controversy: once-popular


spermicide may increase AIDS risk


SUZY COHEN, R.PH.
COLUMNIST

Q: I heard that lubricated
condoms might lead to a high-
er risk of HIV/AIDS, I always
thought that condoms protect
against it. A.K., Sacramento,
Calif.
A: Yes and no. Yes, con-
doms do protect against the
spread of HIV/AIDS and
other sexually transmitted
diseases, but no, they may
not protect against HIV/AIDS
if they contain the spermi-
cide nonoxynol-9 (N9).
This may be a huge shock-
er to you, because in the
1980sand '90s the U.S, sur-
geon general, FDA, CDC and
NIH all concurred that con-
doms with N9 might provide
additional protection against
HIV Then in 2000, another
medical 180 occurred and
the CDC admitted that N9
may actually increase the risk
of contracting HIV when


used frequently.
They learned this by
following 1,000 "ladies of the
night" from 1996 to 2000.
Well, they didn't literally
follow them, but followed
their blood tests taken
before the trial began and
afterward.
All the women were AIDS-
free at the onset. Half of the
group used condoms with
N9; the other half used con-
doms with plain lubricant
(no N9). The trial found that
women using the N9 gel had
become infected with HIV at
about a 50 percent higher
rate than women using plain
lubricant. Studies show that
N9 can strip away the deli-
cate mucosal lining of the
vagina, leading to a higher
rate of infection from STDs.
Ask your gynecologist for his
or her thoughts.
Q: Sometimes I get panic
attacks. I don't know why. My
doctor prescribed an antide-
pressant (Zoloft.) It's helping,
but I still feel anxious, like the
jitters. What else can I take? -
P.W., Tulsa, Okla.
A: Panic attacks make you
think you're going crazy or
dying. Symptoms such as
chest pounding, sweating,
dizziness, difficulty breaking
or a choking sensation are


terrifying and can last up to
an hour. These may occur in
people who are magnesium
deficient, or in people who
have more estrogen than
progesterone (a condition
called estrogen dominance).
Women who are prone to
PMS tend to have more
anxiety and panic attacks as
they approach menopause,
another indicator that
hormones may be part of
the puzzle.
Conventional doctors
often use tranquilizers like
alprazalam or antidepres-
sants like doxepin or Zoloft.
But Zoloft and other SSRI
drugs can give you the jitters,
so ask about lowering your
dosage. Anti-seizure drugs
like gabapentin calm the'
brain too. These medications,
and many others, help
reduce episodes, but I don't
think they adequately
address the underlying cause
of the condition, which could
be any number of issues.
Ask your doctor about


taking 200 to 400 mg of mag-
nesium each day, and about
rubbing about one-quarter
teaspoon of progesterone
cream onto your skin each
night. Do consider essential
fatty acids (as found in cod
liver oil or fish oil), because
they improve brain wiring.
They're sold over the counter
at health food stores and
pharmacies. Of course, take
these supplements only
with your doctor's blessing,
because they're not for every-
one.
Did you know? The herb
echinacea is often bought by
people to boost immunity
during cough and cold sea-
son. Don't take it if you are
allergic to ragweed,
marigolds or chrysanthe-
mums, because dangerous
allergic reactions may occur.

rl j As we age, '7 1'
our muscles can lose
their elasticity and
become tight, making it
more difficult to get around.
3 Howvever, recent research _
shows that stretching helps -.
muscles regain some suppleness,
and the longer the stretch, the
J better. The study compared various
stretch durations in healthy people
with an average age of 85. One group
did no stretching while others .
stretched for 15, 30, or 60 seconds. It
was found that the group that held its
stretches for 60 seconds increased
flexibility and range of motion by
nearly twice as much as the other
groups. They also had greater
mobility, greater ease in bending
over, and less back pain. Thus,
assisted stretching is recommended
for Seniors.

i P.S. Chiropractic can help Seniors
deal with many age-related
conditions, such as arthritis.

just right, subtly perfecting the deadbeat

Gridiron Gang

along with another officer, Malcolm Moore
(Xzibit), turns a group of hard core teenage
felons into a high school football team in
four weeks, Confronted with gang rivalries
and bitter hatred between his teammates,
Porter teaches some hard lessons (and
learns a few himself) as the kids gain a
sense of self-respect and responsibility. In a
world where 75 percent of these juvenile
inmates return to prison or meet with violent
ends on the streets, Porter and Moore face
seemingly insurmountable barriers. No one
wants to compete against convicted crimi-
nals, but through relentless pursuit and a jolt
of inspiration, Porter and his team fight their
way to redemption and a second chance.

An Inconvenient Truth
Featuring a once-defeated Al Gore with his
boxing gloves back on, "An Inconvenient
Truth" aims to raise awareness of Gore's fight
against the "climate crisis." Since his fall from
grace in 2000, Gore has been circling the
planet with a potent PowerPoint presentation,
warming that unless changes are made,
we could be toast in only ten years time.
Essentially a cinematic version of the presen-
tation with the occasional sidebar ferreting
out Gore's motivations the film's lesson
makes it a must-see, but witnessing the man
who was a hair away from the presidency
toting around his own luggage is a bonus.


HOROSCOPE Sept. 15-21


SARIES (March 21-April
19). You'll be negotiat-
ing for what you
want. Knowing that you can
walk away from the table at
any time gives you tremen-
dous leverage and raises your
prestige in the eyes of others.
This is true in love and in the
business world.

TAURUS (April 20-
May 20). Doors you
thought were locked
now swing open. Proceed with
caution, and be prepared
to change direction at a
moment's notice. The best
support and advice comes
from a Cancer friend.

GEMINI IMay 21-June
21). You enter into the'
spirit of those around
you. It's fun for you to try on
the mood and manner of new
people. In doing so, an essen-
tial part of you is imprinted on
them as well.

CANCER (June 22-July
22). Instinctively,
Crabs know that the
essence of knowledge lies
in emotion, not thought.
It's not often that your
intuition leads you astray.
Now friends rely on your
guidance.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
Though you're quite
> pleased with yourself,
changing one small habit
raises your you-to-you rating.
For example, resolve not to eat
peanut butter straight from
the jar, or fill up the gas tank
before there's only a quarter of
a tank left.

VIRGO tAug. 23-Sept.
22). People have the
feeling that they're
getting you to do their bid-
ding, when, in fact, you hold
the most influence. By letting
others feel in control, you're
controlling them:

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). There's something
about you only a
select few people know. Your
stars present a chance to take
this information public. There
are fantastic benefits to doing
this, if you're feeling brave
enough.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-
Nov. 21). Coming up
against the stubborn-
ness of human nature, you
don't complain or waste time
feeling misunderstood.
Instead, you try to see the
world as your stubborn coun-
terpart does, thus breaking
down his resistance.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-
Dec. 21). You quickly
.. ^ distinguish the good
opportunities from the ones
that have only marginal bene-
fit for you. You're also too
smart to snobbishly discount
something just because it's
common. Pop culture offers
you gems of wisdom.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). Those sneaky
Doubts about your
position and work aren't a
given today, but rather, you
may choose whether or not to
engage them. Insecurity is but
a habit and one you've
decided to do without!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18). Your role as a
( rebel is highlighted.
Note that the one who seeks
your opinion really wants your
approval. Tonight, if you give in
to a partner's whim, the favor
will be returned.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20). Dominating
(: forces in your life will
now have to be reckoned with.
You are, after all, capable of
thinking for yourself, though
you may have been bullied
into believing otherwise.

group members held a
street-comer demonstration
protesting the War in Iraq on
Saturday.
The group's first demon-
stration was held Feb. 9,
2003. Since that day, the
group has held a demonstra-
tion once a-week on Man-
asota Key, and moved this
weekend to S.R. 776.
About 200 people attend-
ed the first demonstration.
But attendance has slacked
off since then; at one point,
it was down to one.
That lone person was
Ranallo.
"To sit back and do noth-
ing is devastating to a democ-
racy," said Ranallo, who has
been participating in pro-
tests since the Vietnam War.


"The government doesn't do
anything against demonstra-
tions until they feel that
demonstrators have people
behind them," she said.
Members held up signs
reading: "War is not the
answer" and "Money is the
game, war is the shame."
Louise Brunberg, an EPIC
member, held up a sign that
said: "Have you ever heard of
a terrible peace or a lovely
war?"
"I'm trying to tell (people)
it's the wrong adjectives,"
Brunberg said. "It's reversed
to make people think. The
best prosperity for the whole
world is peace. Without
peace we can't get anything
accomplished."
With the noonday sun


blistering, Richard Nelson,
another EPIC member, stood
under his green-and-white
umbrella, a disgruntled
American citizen. Nelson
said he was protesting be-
cause of his discontent with
America's secretiveness.
"I don't like the so-called
secret prisons," said Nelson,
referring to admissions that
the CIA has secret prisons
set up in other countries.
"I don't think we belong
in Iraq. I hope they think
about what America is doing
in this world, with making

Study reveals beach-goers vacation longer


Pie in the sky
You know what you will
wear for Halloween but how
will you carve your pumpkin?
If you have some plans along
those lines, call Courtney
Linn .at 207-1102. You and
your pumpkin might enjoy 15
minutes of fame in the
Gondolier Sun.
Full house
Mid-September, bikers
from across the country will
rev up their choppers
throughout Monroe County
for the annual Key West Poker
Run, Sept. 15-16. The event
annually draws more than
10,000 participants who ride
from Key West to Miami, with
stops along the way to pick up
playing cards. The best hand
at the end of the event could
win a brand new Harley-
Davidson. Drivers of cars and
trucks can purchase poker


hands and participate in the
run from Miami to Key West
as well. In addition, those
who can't drive the entire
course can purchase and play
their poker hands in Key
West. To learn ore, visit key
westchamber.org.
Beach stats
News from the Travel
IndustryAssociation and D.K.
Shifflet & Associates Ltd. sug-
gests Venice beaches will
soon be full o0 people who
will stay longer and spend
more than the typical tourists
in other vacation destina-
tions. According to the study,
American beach travelers
take longer vacations, spend
more money 4n their trips,
and are more likely to stay in a
timeshare than the average
traveler. Going to the beach is
often a family affair, with
more than one m three Amer-
ican beach-going households
taking a child on the trip (36
percent). Just 22 percent of
traveling households overall
include a child when travel-
ing. With all the grandparents
in Venice, Vernice numbers
may be higher still.
More than 54 million trips
to the beach were made by
United States households last
year. These households spent
an average of ,737 per trip,
excluding transportation to
their destination, compared


to just $339 for traveling
households overall. In addi-
tion, more than 15 percent of
beach trips last a week or
longer, compared to just five
percent of trips overall.
Beach travelers do more
than just work on their tans
and swim in the ocean. They
also love to eat, with dining
out (46 percent) ranking as
the number one activitywhile
at the beach, followed by
touring or sightseeing (39
percent), shopping (37 per-
cent), and participating in a
variety of entertainment (33
percent) and night life activi-
ties (14 percent).
Honk if you like cars
Car buffs, are gearing up for
the 19th annual Venice Chap-
ter AACA Collector Car Show
at the Gazebo area of Cen-
tennial Park in downtown
Venice. With 24 classes to be
judged and special awards for
such categories as oldest Car,
Best Restored and Best Street
Rod, there will be plenty to
see for anyone who like cars
or remembers special cars
from long ago. Sept. 24 is the
preregistration deadline for
filing entry forms if you want
to participate in the show. The
show itself will be held Sun-
day, Oct. 1. Preregistration is
$15 per car. After Sept. 24, the
price goes up to $20 per car.
Vendors may buy a 10-foot by


15-foot booth space for $25
for the day. Checks should be
made payable to Venice

Key.kayaking
Nature lovers can slip.
through the silent backcoun-
try waters off Key West and
the Lower Keys in a kayak,
discovering the flora and
fauna that make up the
unique Keys ecosystem, on
Blue Planet Kayak Tours'
starlight tour. All excursions
are led by an environmental
scientist.
Night kayaking typically
offers cooler temperatures
and calmer winds than day-
time paddling as well as a
..quiet, serenity-inducing ex-
perience on the water. In
addition, the red mangrove
forests in the backcountry
appear mysterious and en-
chanting when explored at
night.
Tours begin approximately
45 minutes before sundown
so paddlers can view a Keys
sunset while watching birds
such as pelicans, cormorants
and ibis flock to a mangrove
rookery for the night. After
dark, each kayaker is provid-
ed with a headlamp with an


adjustable beam to allow the
viewing of nocturnal marine
life such as lobster, shrimp
and octopus while traversing
the shallow backcountry
waters.
The starlight tours last
between two and one-half
and three hours. No previous
kayaking experience is neces-
sary. While mosquitoes are
rarely an issue, bug spray is
provided.
Cost for the guided kayak
adventure is $40 per person.
Departure times vary de-
pending on seasonal chang-
es, and complimentary trans-
portation is available to the
departure site near Key West.
Blue Planet also offers sev-
eral daytime kayak eco-
excursions as well as kayak
rentals. Specialty excursions
can be arranged for groups.
For information and to
book an excursion, call (305)
294-8087 or visit blue-planet-


kayak.com.

HOUSE from Page 1B
shelves and the table was set
with some multi-colored
striped dishes discovered in a
kitchen cabinet. Building the
place settings like a designer
in a model home, Brady used
layers of plates at each setting,
placemats and color-coordi-
nated napkins plus extra sil-
verware to make a bigger
statement. A large piece of
coral found on the lanai is a
dramatic centerpiece.
Decorative plates were
placed on plate stands on
nearby kitchen counters. Oth-
er accessories were stripped
to a bare minimum with just a
few grape-themed items used
on a few shelves to carry out
the mauve and lavender color
scheme, which already had
far more impact. The old say-
ing "Less is more," was work-
ing well in the Wass house.
Pictures that were reusedi
were rehung to relate to the'
furniture.
"Your next job is to lower
the pictures," Brady said to
the Realtor.
"It makes the ceiling seem!
higher," Blokzijl said as she;
replaced one large painting:
between the two cabinets dis-
playing the bird collection.
"I brought scarves to dress
up the windows," Brady said.
There were no draperies in
the living area. The windowsi
had simple blinds. Brady pur-
chased decorative curtain tie
backs, which she and the
Realtor hung at either corner
of each of the two main win-
dows. With the new hardware
in place, the two stretched the|
scarves between the holders,I
instantly softening the look of
the room.
Tile floors throughout the
house facilitated furniture!
moving and add to the spa-
cious feel of the completed
project.
These changes occurred in
less than three hours. By 1:15
p.m., the house resembled a,
model home. I
Another bonus of staging ai
house for resale is that thei
homeowner can get a head!
start on packing or disposing
of itenimsl
Brady. a certified Interior
Refiner and associate of With
Your Things Decorating, charg-
es bythe hour for Resale Ready
decorating and by the room for
other services, which include
design plans left with the client.
If you want to do it your-
self, begin with a blank slate.
Take all the accessories out of
each room. Remove as much
furniture as you can. Take pic-.
tures from the walls and put,
back only those items that will
enhance the room. Give po-|
tential buyers every opportu-
nity to visualize their own
things in the house or condo.
Consider that an impartial
and trained third party such
as Brady is likely to do a better
job in less time and with less
hassle than a homeowner
who is partial to his or her
possessions. A third party also
can minimize friction be-
tween spouses in regard to
what stays and what goes.
"John fell in love with the big
pictures when we moved here,"
Marianne Wass said. "I didn't
argue with him about it."
Childhood sweethearts
who rediscovered each other
25 years ago, the couple is as
happy today as they were
when they were married,
because they didn't argue
about a little thing like a big
picture.
Thanks to Brady, they still
won't argue about it because
Brady made the decision.
"I love it," Wass said when it
was all done. "I can't wait for
John to see it."
If you want to see the
result, there will be an open
house Sunday, Sept. 17, 1-4
p.m. for potential buyers.
The Wass house is at 1355
Everest. Take Shamrock Boul-
evard west and south to
Everest. Turn right. The house
will be on the left. If coming
from the south, turn left at


Seminole and travel west to
Secor. Turn left and then turn
right onto Everest.

Before it was staged, the master bedroom was a comfortable place for Nokomis and Kia to rest.


SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL
Home staging for resale has a lot to do with sending a mes-
sage of welcome. The colors in the striped dishes relate to the
painting, which now hangs about 6 inches lower on the wall,
its top lined up with the top of the cabinets. The blue in the
placemats is picked up in the dishes and in the painting. The
gold stripe in the dishes ties in with the colored glass in the
light fixture. The coral centerpiece was borrowed from the
lanai.


After being stripped of extraneous objects and lightened with a new bedspread and borrowed
white throw on the black chair, the room is more inviting. One picture was moved and the
plates, which are more suitable in a kitchen or dining room, were packed away.

Why Christians must


support Israel...


Interfaith and Buddhism


LARRY SMITH
RELIGION COLUMNIST



Whether in a time of war or
peace Christians must sup-
port Israel for three main rea-
sons.
First, Christians owe the
Jewish people our eternal
gratitude.
The apostle Paul wrote,
"For if the Gentiles have been
partakers of their [the Jews]
spiritual things, their [Gen-
tiles] duty is also to minister
to them in material things."
(Romans 15:27)
We, Gentile Christians, are
partakers of the "'spiritual
things" of the Jews. Here's a
short list of some of those
things:
the sacred scriptures
the patriarchs
the prophets
Mary, Joseph, and Jesus of
Nazareth
the 12 disciples
the apostles
Further, Jesus of Nazareth
was born Jewish. Actually,
Jesus never said of the
Gentiles they were his
brethren. (See Matthew 25.)
He was circumcised in keep-
ing with Jewish tradition. He
had his bar mitzvah at age 13.-
He kept the Law of Moses and
.hewore the prayer shawl in
keeping with Moses' com-
mand. And, on his death on
the cross, over his head was
the inscription, "King of the
Jews."
Second, Christians will be
blessed when they support
Israel. Psalm 122:6 teaches us,
"Pray for the peace of Jer-.
usalem: May they prosper


who love you."
One biblical example of a
Gentile supporting Israel and
then being blessed by God is
Cornelius of Capernaum.
Cornelius demonstrated his
love for the Jewish people by
building a synagogue, in Is-
rael. (See Luke 7.) Jesus
blessed Cornelius by healing
his dying servant.
Also, Genesis 12:3 teaches
us, God will bless those who
bless Israel.
And, contrary to what may
have been believed in past
columns that I have written, I
have been a friend and "lover
of Israel" for 30 years.
As Gentile Christians, my
wife, Elizabeth and I have
been blessed as a direct result
of praying for the peace of
Jerusalem and supporting
Israel financially through
aliyah (ah-lee-ya), a program
to return Jews to Israel from
everywhere in the world.
Third, God created the
nation of Israel by his sover-
eignty. Israel belongs to God
and "he gave the title deed of
the land to Abraham, Isaac,
and Jacob, and their descen-
dants forever." (See Genesis
15:18;17:2-8.)
As Christians, when we
support Israel financially and
in prayer we demonstrate our
love and gratitude for the
Jewish people. We also show
our support for Israel when
we stand with them for their
divine right to the land. God
gave it to them and they have
every right to exist as a people
and as a nation.

New home listed in Talon Bay


: i.t-4 a7~~1 .5 "F

Nearly full-grown palms make for an inviting entrance to a new
home in Talon Bay.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Because the best-

made plans some-
times change,
Realtor Sandra Morris
has listed a brand new
but never-lived in 1,650-
square-foot home at the
new 200-home Talon
Bay gated community
off Ortiz in North Port.
Like all the homes in
the community, this one
has a tile roof, paver dri-
veway and extensive
professional landscap-
ing, including a triple-
trunk Christmas palm, a
multi-trunk dwarf-
pygmy date palm, full-
size cabbage palms and
decorative plants ac-
centing the front yard
and paver entry path.
Corian counters and
raised panel European
kitchen cabinets plus
18-inch tile flooring en-
hances the convenient
kitchen, which includes
a side-by-side refrigera-
tor with ice and water
through the door, un-
der-cabinet lighting, up-
graded dishwasher, mic-
rowave and smooth-top
range. For design con-
sistency, Corian has
been used for window
sills throughout the
home.


Additional 18-inch
tiles have been used
throughout the living
area and color-coordi-
nated tile of a smaller
size is a feature of the
bathroom shower en-
closures. '
Volume ceilings are
10-feet high and further
enhanced by interior
trim details, including
crown molding and
archways over door-
ways. Raised 36-inch
counters in the bath-
rooms also add to the
feeling of spaciousness
in the house.
Exterior details in-
clude paver driveways
and tile rooms through-
out the gated communi-
ty, which will have an
elegant community cen-
ter, inground heated
,pool, tennis courts,
playground and other
amenities. Nature is key,
at Talon Bay, where
canoeing and kayaking
are facilitated by the
community's waterways
and location at the edge
of the Myakka River.
The new home, built
by Fidelity Homes, is
listed at $299,900. For an
appointment to see the
villa, call Sandy Morris
at 661-9661 or 423-5787
or her co-lister, Brian
Morris, at 204-5302.

just love the Dream Cruise you can count on me every year."


Truly rare, this 1930 Cadillac sports a V16 engine. That's right, 16 cylinders! Perhaps the original designers felt that's
what it would take to move this massive car, longer than today's stretch vans. The car rides on a 148 inch wheelbase,
and the 452ci V16 would propel the touring car up to 100 miles per hour.

Rick Langley and his daughter Jacklyn were out early showing off their 1932 Ford Roadster. "It's a traditional Hi-Boy still
up on the original frame," Rick told us. I've owned a variety of muscle cars, but I always wanted a Roadster. I've been
showing this one for the' last four years." Thanks for sharing, Rick.

From page 2
way out." Our conversation
was interrupted by a squeal
and shout from Nancy David-
son "I got that car when I
graduated from high school!"
Nancy told us that she gradu-
ated from Dearborn High
School and the first car she
bought new was a Comet like
Bill's. Bill was happy to take
her on the same tour of his
ride he had given me. The
Dream Cruise and other
enthusiast shows around the
country not only are impres-
sive displays of rolling classic
cars and hot rods, but a nos-
talgic step back in time for
car owners present and past.
As I wandered up Wood-
ward, still thinking about the
'65 Comet, the rain started
again. I ducked under a large
white canvas roof that Ron
KasPerski and several other
show enthusiasts had erected
to protect their cars. There,
dry under the'tentlike roof,
was what was considered the
biggest, baddest, and mean-
est of all Mustangs in 1969,
the Boss 429. I had never seen
one of these renegade ponies
up close and personal. The
original Boss '9s came with
the stock NASCAR version
429 engine and are legendary
in the gearhead community.
Dale Alsman was watching
the car for Ron and filled in
some of the car's history.
"The cars were actually
built in Brighton, Michigan at
the Kar-Kraft assembly plant.
They were hand assembled
'and production ran from Jan-
uary 1969 through July 1969,"
Dale said. "I did a lot of the
engine work during this car's
restoration it took about
five years."
"There were only 900 of
these made, and this one only
has 18,000 original miles on
her," Dale said. This beauty
was truly a limited-produc-
tion model. The 1969 produc-
tion ran from January 1969
through July 1969 and pro-
duced only 859 Boss Mus-
tangs.
Bill Lane of Clinton Town-
ship stood beside his 1963
1/2 Ford Galaxie 500-XL,
towel in hand. Unlike some of
the folks with whom we had
previously spoken, Bill was
not wiping rain but finger-
prints left by showgoers who
had lingered around his car
long enough to leave their
mark. Bill's car had plenty of
lookers, not only because the
hulking midnight black cruis-
er was in pristine condition,
but because of a couple of
flags on the front fender that
put drivers on notice that a
427ci 410 horsepower engine
was tucked under the hood.
Bill's was the rare exception;
it came with a 427 equipped
with dual four-barrel carbs,
which produced 425 horse-
power and plenty of torque to
make Bill's Ford the king of
total performance.
"The Galaxie. 500 XL pro-
duced in 1963 was the first
Galaxie ever offered with the
427ci engine," Bill said. "I've
been working on my car for
about five years and have had
it on the road now for about a
year. While I was working on
it, I was sure to get a new
paint job, new interior and
new tires."
On a quiet part of the
Dream Cruise in Birming-
ham, we found ourselves
face-to-face with a couple of
stately ladies, a 1953 Chrysler
Imperial and Susan Sim-
mons. Susan was quick to
point out, "This is a Chrysler
and was produced before the
Imperial was introduced as a
stand-alone brand."
Standing in front of the
massive automobile you are
struck by its style and design.
"Marshall Fredericks
designed that," Susan
explained, answering the
unasked question in my eyes


as I examined the eagle hood
ornament dominating the
Chrysler's front.
"That's the 'Victory Eagle.'
You probably recognize it,
from the Detroit Veterans
Building. The building was
built after World War II, and
the Victory Eagle defines the
meaning and the spirit of the
building. The 'V' shape of the


wings proclaim 'V' for Victo-
ry, which resonated with vet-
erans and so many who
worked in Detroit's factories
during the war," Susan said.
Without the Victory Eagle,
the white marble building
would look like government
buildings do, anonymous
and functional. The Ameri-
can Institute of Architects in
1952 awarded Fredericks the
Gold Fine Arts Medal, an
honor bestowed only three
times in the organization's
history.
"This luxury car of
Chrysler's bygone days was
not only artfully designed,
but you may be surprised to
know it came stock with a
331ci Hemi under the hood
and Chrysler's first fully auto-
matic Powerflite transmis-
sion," Susan said. "Well,
maybe not fully automatic -
it still has a clutch you must
push in to get started." One
could not help but wonder as
we walked around the car
and talked to Susan if the
designers of this car knew it
would be the last of the line.
Perhaps that is what made
them take extra care to dress
it up as a representative of
post-war pride and prosperi-
ty.
When you look at the front
of a Ford F-150 pickup, the
grill makes it hard not to rec-
ognize. Looking at Jim
Giroux's 1948 Ford F-1 pick-
up, it is unmistakably Ford. It
would be a mistake, however,
to regard it as a stock truck.
"She's powered by a 289 V8,"
Jim said. '.'The front end is
from a Dodge Dakota and it
even has power steering and
brakes, and cruise control."
When developing its first
all-new vehicle after World
War II, Ford Motor Company
invested $1 million to design
the cab for its new line of
1948 pickups. The resulting
"Million Dollar Cab" changed
the face of Ford Motor Com-
pany forever. Jim's restoration
of his F-Series is a well-
thought-out blend of modern
materials and vintage looks.
George Arakelian came
from Clarkston, Mich., to
show off his 1937 Cord. "The
Cord was a car of many firsts.
First front-wheel drive, first
electric shift, first unit body
construction, and the first
appearance of disappearing
headlights," George told us.
The 1937 model designa-
tion was 812. There were only

Charlie and Louise Vitter were out cruising their 1957 Pontiac Star Chief. Charlie is the second owner of the car and has owned it over 20 years.
