countersues



city over lease


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


Venice Pier Group Inc.,
which operates Sharky's on
the Pier, has responded to a
city of Venice lawsuit with
one of its own.
As authorized by Venice
City Council, City Attorney
Bob Anderson retained out-
side counsel to file a lawsuit
against VPG in August seek-
ing to have two city agree-
ments with it declared un-
enforceable.
The first agreement, enter-


Besides the date, terms not
filled in include the base
rent, the date adjustments
to the rent will begin, the
gross sales amount at which
percentage rent would start
to be charged and the date
the first payment would be
due.
Moore also raised the
possibility that the city's
rental income might be ad-
versely affected by the new
'lease. VPG's base rent was
expected to go from $12,300
per year to more' than
$72,000, but the amount that


SHARKY'S AT A GLANCE
Sharky's on the Pier started in 1986 as a 90-seat bar and
restaurant under a 20-year lease with options for two five-year
extensions. Its current seating capacity is 299; the proposed
expansion would increase seating to 555 and nearly double its
size, from 10,180 square feet to 19,265 square feet.
The restaurant is on Venice Municipal Airport property owned
by the city. Rental income goes into the airport enterprise fund
and is used for pier maintenance and repair.
The improvements VPG proposes and would pay for include
expanding S9harky's; adding new public restrooms; and repairing
portions of city bulkhead. It would split the cost of parking lot
improvements 50-50 with the city.

VPG, then known as Pier
Group Inc., for the Sharky's
property, 1600 South Harbor
Drive. It contemplates the
expansion of the restaurant
and improvements to the
parking lot, concessions and
bait house.
The second, undated,
agreement is a new lease
for the property, providing
for higher base rent and an
adjusted formula for a per-
centage of VPG's gross re-
ceipts. Blanks in the new
lease are what led to the
city's lawsuit.

Moore, a retired judge, ques-

million from $300,000.
In 2005 the city received
$330,202 under the original
lease.
Agreement to agree
Anderson was directed to
determine whether the city
could invalidate the new
lease, which would run for
30 years with the option for
two five-year extensions. He
recommended the city seek
a declaratory judgment un-
der a Florida law that allows
a party in doubt of its con-
tractual rights to have a
judge define them.

Dealing with the red menace
D e'. i n'' 1.:" 1--w t~ re d .. .*


BY STEVENJ. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Red tide is a killer of
fish, wildlife and tourism.
It can make going to the
beach a nightmare. It can fill
the air with acrid toxins that
irritate the eyes, nose, throat
aild lungs.
This massive conglomera-
tion of tiny, single-celled


algae is mostly seen in warm
saltwater as a brownish red
sheen on the surface. It can
cover up to several hundred
square miles. No one has
been able to predict when or
where it \\ill appear or how
long it will last.
How long has red tide
been around? Are we seeing
blooms more and more fre-
quently these days? Why?


How does it affect our lives?
And what can we do to min-
imize its effects on our en-
vironment and industry?
These were questions ad-
dressed by a roundtable of
panelists assembled by the
Sun papers last week. They
came from the ranks of sci-
ence, business and history in
order to examine the subject
within their own particular


context.
KarenW. Maurer, executive
director- of the Englewood
Cape Haze Area Chamber of
Commerce, began with a
local business perspective.
"From an economic stand-
point, red tide has a terrible
impact," she said. "It would
be wonderful if we could

Caillouette: New Orleans native plans for Venice storms


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER


Katrina, Charley, Ivan,
Jeanne, Wilma names that
would otherwise be the
name of a friend or relative
remind us of some of the
more destructive hurricanes
over the past few years.
To Don Caillouette, who
grew up in New Orleans and
now lives in Venice, names
like these have been the sub-
ject of hours of study and
reflection. As one of the
comprehensive planners in
the city's Planning and Zon-
ing Department, he has at-
tempted to learn all he can
about the impact of each
storm, and the many ways
communities along the Gulf-
Coast can prepare for their
fury.
"It only takes one storm
to drastically change people's
lives," said Caillouette. "With
the majority of tropical
storms and even hurricanes
that have passed near or over
us, the inconvenience only

THIS WEEK IN VENICE HISTORY


South County schools are facing a shake-up


From the Sept. 26,. 1981 Gondolier Sun


BY DAVID MARTIN
STAFFWRITER

Options facing school
board members within the
scope of the newly presented
five-year comprehensive plan
could refocus completely the
educational picture within
the mushrooming South
County system.
The search for a plan to
guide and upgrade the overall


district began over a year ago
when school and community
leaders asked each other
what was coming up next and
nobody knew.
Board members, criticized
for reacting to problems
instead of following a badly
needed game plan, received
over the following, months
input from the community on
every aspect of the system;
from how to get more mileage


out of school buses to recom-
mendations to modify the dis-
trict's overall educational phi-
losophy to middle schools.
Now the input is in and the
options are on the table.-
School board members
facing far-reaching decisions
were asked by Super-
intendent James Fox this
week to stop, back up and
take, a hard look at ways to
better meet the needs of"
Sarasota County students.
"Should ,the coriprehen-


sive plan be implemented,"
he said, "it will hold great
impact on the school district
for many years to come."
Leading the plan's list of
recommendations for; the
1982-83 school year is the
controversial shift to middle
schools, a system designed'to
provide the educational and
emotional transition emerg-
ing adolescents need
between elementary school
and high school, proponents
i say.

Looking for silver


lining in red tide

Red tide is back off the West
Coast of Florida. This algae
bloom kills marine life by
clogging gills with clots of '!.
microscopic organisms. The
dead fish wash onto beaches
and create a stink.
In that stink are toxins that
cause humans and-animals to ,
cough. That's bad, right?
It's not bad for folks who
suffer a congestive lung dis- ..
ease and can't cough away :-.. ,.
their congestion. So a group of i.
scientists is coming to our
coast, hoping red tide algae "'
can yield a drug that could
offer hope to cystic fibrosis TROPICAL BOB
victims. WEATHER COMMENT
Now, is there a profitable
use for tons of rotting fish?

Foundations: Stay the course on NeXt Gen plan


Putting it in park


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Superintendent Gary Nor-
ris's resignation announce-
ment on Thursday has sent
shockwaves throughout the
county.
It was the talk of the town
for those who attended the
Leadership Sarasota event
Friday evening.
"A lot of community lead-
ers have called me and said
we don't want another super-
intendent," said school board
member Kathy Kleinlein, who
attended the meeting.
"They wanted to know
how they could help. They're
asking what they can do to
Change Gary's mind about
leaving," she said.
There is even talk of a
group forming to keep Norris
and smooth over obstacles.
They hope the door may
not have been shut entirely.
Don't expect a decision any
time soon by the Sarasota
County Schbol Board on its
next move, though.
With two new school
board members, Caroline
Zucker and Shirley Brown,
about to officially take their
seats in November, the board
is unlikely to make a decision
on how to proceed until
they're brought into the dis-
cussion.
Norris said he intends on
finishing out the school year
before leaving in June.
Not easy
Norris, who [insiders say
didn't have patience with foot
dragging when! it came to


implementing education
reforms, made personal calls
giving advance notice of his
resignation to the leaders of
some of the education foun-
dations around Sarasota
County. They were shocked.
"I was very disappointed
for the community," said Teri
Hansen, president and CEO
of Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice.
"Seven superintendents in
seven years. That says some-
thing more about our com-
munity than it does the
superintendent. I think we
need to look at tlat," she said
on Friday.
Hansen supports Norris's
NeXt Generation Learning
plan and expects the school
district to continue in that
direction.
"Change is never easy or
comfortable. We know it takes
a long time, a sustained effort.
We will do whatever we can to
support that direction," she
said. i
Ditto that sentiment for
Stewart Stearns, president of
the Community Foundation
of Sarasota County.
"We've been talking about
some of these changes for a
decade. We thought Gary
Norris would be the guy who
got us there. That's what was
so exciting. He's been walking
the walk about the things we
talked about doing," Stearns
said.
"It's important for people
to say (to the school board)
we need to move forward and
not backward. We know it
works." ,
Debra M. Jacobs, president


and CEO of William G. Selby
and Marie Selby Foundation,
also wants to see reform
efforts continued.
"Gary Norris has led our
school district forward with a
focus on helping our childfe n
be prepared for a complex
world. There is inuch work
ahead. We must embrace
change if we want the quality
pf life we now enjoy to contin-
ue for o younger genera-
on.
"In No. ember we will have
wo new school board menm-
bers work ing wih three veter-
scho 1 board members.
his board has the opportu-
ity and responsibility to
ocus orn advancing NeXt
Generation Learning so that
the changes that have begun
don't dissolve and academic
achievement blossoms,"
Jacobs said.
Not so fast
Barry. Dubin, executive
'director, of the Sarasota
Class if ied /Teachers
Association,'said he, too, sup-
ports many of the changes
Norris wants to see imple-
mented.
He believes educators on
the front lines are willing to
make at least some of the pro-
posed changes but can't make
the turn as quickly as Norris
would like.
"In Florida, each school is
like its own little kingdom.
There is a culture of being in
their own little world. That's
the way it is. It should be no
surprise (there was some
resistance). Staff needed to
feel more involved.


"Gary's strength is also his
weakness,. He has a laser-like
vision about closing the
achievement gap. But he has
trouble dealing with the fact
that there are differing
visions, or with moving at a
slower pace.
"They're always having to
slow Gary up. He's not crazy
about that.
"If a general gets too far in
front of his troops he can't be
effective. It's hard to dislike
somebody for that. But it does
get in the way.
"Teachers have some
important input Take time to


listen and make them feel
important. You can have all the
great ideas you want, but if you
can't get teachers to believe in
it, it's pot effective. Change has
to be done effectively, and you
have to take into account the
school culture.
"That's something we can
work on," Dubin said.
No time to wait
While recognizing that
change comeins slowly. Hansen
said she shares Norris's
urgency in moving forward
with reforms now.
"Our children have to be


able to compete (in a fast-
changing world economy).
. Citizens need to be saying,
'We voted for this plan and we
demand that the school
board continue on with it and
make sure his replacement
does (the same).'"
"We don't have time to
wait. We don't have time for
(even one) generation of stu-
dents to go through a system
that does not adequately pre-
pare them for that environ-
ment."

North Port well study
results to be presented
Sarasota County Health Department officials will present
the results of three water quality studies compiled over
the past 18 months involving more than 600 private well
owners in North Port on Wednesday, Oct. 4 in the
Commission Chambers, 4970 City Hall Boulevard. The
meeting will cover studies on well owner opinions of
their water quality, changes in water chemistry in the
aquifer between 1972 and 2005 and water use based on
North Port resident data.
The reports discuss findings of the studies, implications
for water management and recommendations for further
action. Hard copies of the executive summaries of all
studies will be available at the meeting or by calling Dr.
Charge Morris at 941-861-6574. The complete reports are

REDTIDE from Page 1 A


match up its arrival to when
the fewest number of tourists
are here. It can decimate a
season. People have been
known to cancel and leave
because of red tide."
Maurer pointed out that
many tourists who have
never encountered red tide
before think it's some kind
of disease when they hear
about it for the first time.
She said the media can be
partly responsible for this
perception.
"I think sometimes the
press, the radio and TV all
play up a red tide occurrence
almost to the level of a hur-
ricane coming," Maurer said.
She noted that in some
cases a reportedly large
bloom may be greatly re-
duced by the time word gets
out to the public. By that
time, however, it's too late and
no one comes to the beach.
Politics and economics
This sparked discussion of
the need for better education
on the topic.
"We get a lot of phone calls
about it," chimed in Bobbi
Rodgers, resource manager
of the Charlotte Harbor
Environmental Center. "It
would be nice to have a tie-
in on it, since we have peo-
ple calling us from all over
for updates."
Mote Marine Laboratory
in Sarasota was represented
at the roundtable by Richard


H. Pierce, senior scientist
and director.
"Red tide is very interest-
ing and challenging," Pierce
said. "We know now that as
scientists we can't just study
red tide. It is a very political-
ly and economically moti-
vated issue."
Pierce added that there
are people who believe red
tide should be eradicated
entirely, while others are
convinced that no action at
all is necessary, because it is
a natural phenomenon.
"Our approach is to look
at the big picture," he said.
"What causes it, how'
does it affect marine life,
how does it affect public
health. Then we look into
what can be done to reduce
its impact and alleviate its
effects."
Pierce spoke of new
ways Mote has devised to
gather timely data from area
beaches.
"We have just implement-
ed a program where the life-
guards, who have their own
Blackberries, twice a day log
in steady information that
comes right to Mote's opera-
tions center and on to the
Web site," he said. "People
can now find out what the
conditions are, morning and
afternoon, at seven beaches
in Sarasota County."
No definite link
Helpful as that informa-


tion is to beachgoers, Pierce
warned that science "is still
in the early stages of develop-
ing technology need to ans-
wer the big questions of
where it is, what are the con-
ditions that cause it to oc-
cur, what are the conditions
that cause it to grow and
what are the conditions that
make it go away."
Pierce added that al-
though coastal pollution
such as fertilizer runoff
could be a contributor to the
growth of red tide algae
blooms, "from a scientific
viewpoint we don't have the
'data that shows definitively"
that pollution is the cause.
. Vernon Peeples of Punta
Gorda then spoke up to offer
a historical perspective to the
subject. Peeples is a former
14-year state representative
now writing a book on the
history of Charlotte Harbor.
"Red tide has been around
a long time," Peeples noted.
: He then rattled off the
years in which early histori-
ans noted appreciable red
tide in the area: 1844, 1854,
1856, 1865, 1878,.1879, 1880,
1882, 1883, 1884, 1885, 1908,
1916, 1935,1946, 1947.
Taking a toll
Jack Taylor, who has been
working as a marine biolo-
gist in Florida since 1958,
noted, "I've been at the
water or near the water
since then. I can say with


certainty that it's a severe
problem."
Taylor said he believed
red tide outbreaks have
become more prominent for
two reasons: Methods have
greatly improved for locating
and reporting it, and more
people live on the coastline
to be affected by it.
"This might also be one of
the reasons why we think it's
of longer duration," he said. .
He added that red tide
alone may not be the whole
problem. It may be just the
tip of the iceberg.
"It's my observation that
in Lemon Bay, Sarasota Bay
and Gasparilla Sound partic-
ularly, when you go over the
shallow 'grass flats and look
down into the water there
are algal mats that are defi-
nitely having an adverse im-
pact on the growth of sea
grasses," Taylor said. "The
red tide is a sort of a wake-
up call to us that even
though the coastal runoff
may not be having direct
impact on red tide, it's cer-
tainly having an adverse
impact on all those other
algae which are becoming
serious problems.
"Unregulated, rampant in-
creased coastal population
in southwest Florida is tak-.
ing a huge toll on water
quality," he added, "and until
there's the political will to
restrain it and control it then
we are on our way to de-


stroying the most valuable
resource that we have in this
part of the country."
Pierce agreed.
"It's essential researchers
look at red tide," Pierce said.
"But you need to look at the
whole picture the types of
nutrients it uses, and most
of them are natural. But
there is a contribution from
coastal pollution and we're
trying very hard to figure
out how that affects red tides.
We know it doesn't cause
them to start, but does it
enhance them? Does it make
them more intensive? That's
an area of intensive research
now."
Political muscle
How do we make it go
away?
"There are some natural
materials known to inhibit
*algal growth, which don't
seem to inhibit other
growth," Pierce said.
"There's biological con-
trol, there are natural para-
sites, natural viruses. There
are bacteria that actually kill
the algae. But you have to
be careful. You don't want to
release an algacidal bacteria
in large amounts."
Pierce added that clay is a
substance that has been used
effectively in Japan and Korea
to curb the growth of red tide.
"We- don't want to cover
the bottom with clay," he said.
"But clay in combination with


algacidal bacteria or some-
thing else that might break
down the toxins (could work).
Clay in an isolated, small
area, perhaps if manatees
are coming into a sea grass
area to feed and there hap-
pens to be a large red tide
coming into that area, it
might stop those sea grasses
from becoming contaminat-
ed."
"History tells us this is
nothing new and it's not go-
ing away tomorrow," Maurer
said.
Peeples agreed and stress-
ed the need for a better
informed public.
"Research is politically
driven," Peeples said. "If you
have a broad base of edu-
cated citizens, not just in the
coastal counties but the in-
land counties as well, you
can get the political muscle
necessary effectively deal
withered tide."
Pierce cautioned that sig-
nificant action would take
time.
"It's critical to keep an eye
on public needs," Pierce con-
cluded. "This isn't something
you give a million dollars to
and expect -to be solved. It
has to be sustained, continu-
ous, ongoing research.
"Part of it basic, part ap-
plied to the real needs of the
coastal environment."

SHARIKY'S P6,1


both the lease amendment
and the new lease declared
unenforceable because they
are "nothing more than an
agreement to agree in the
future." Agreements to agree
generally aren't considered
valid contracts.
The lawsuit also alleges
the two documents are "void
for vagueness" because key
terms are blank or were to
be agreed to later. It alleges


as well that there is a "lackI
or failure of consideration"
- nothing of value, was
given to seal the deal. : .
If the two agreements are
found to be valid, the lawsuit
asks that the court determine
the parties' rights and duties
under them.
Approved as is


Paragraph
Complaint

Rolm


9 of the city's
acknowledges


that \TG contends the
agreements are valid and
enforceable. The corpora-
tion's response to the suit
goes further, seeking a de-
claration of its own rights
and, if it prevails, damages
for breach of contract plus
attorney's fees.
VPG's position is that the
new lease has already been
approved by council, with
the understanding, that the.


blanks could only be filled in
after all the improvements
were completed, as provided
for in the agreement amend-
ing the original lease. Until
that date, it argues, certain
dates and figures could not
be determined.
Attached to VPG's re-
sponse is a copy of the min-
utes of the April 25, 2000,
council meeting, which
show a 6-1 vote in favor of


the lease with a few modi-
fications and with the blanks
in question. Former city
council member Janice Mc-
Dermott was the lone "no"
vote. No current council
member was serving at that
time.
The response also raises
several defenses against the
city's, attempt to have the
agreements declared invalid.
The defenses are based on


the city's delay in taking
action and partial perfor-
mance of the obligations by
VPG and the city under the
lease amendment in reliance
on its validity.
The city is represented by

surge. Most of them lost
everything, and- are not fi-
nancially able to return to
their previous lifestyle."
Caillouette attributes
much of the public's confu-
sion to the "Flood Insurance
Rate Map," a document is-
sued by the Federal Emerg-
ency Management Agency,
which identifies and ranks
"flood zones" in any given
area.
"People who are buying a
house or considering flood
insurance," he said, "are usu-
ally advised to look up their
property on a FIRM map and
determine their flood zone
classification that will tell
them whether or not they
need to worry about flood
insurance, they're told."
"The trouble is," he said,
"those zones are established
based on historic averages,
and don't take into account
the potential for storm surge
in a Category 3-or-above
hurricane.
"For example," he said,
"where I live now is about
four blocks from the gulf,
and the flood zone is 'B,'
which indicates an 'area of
minimal flooding' for which
flood insurance is not re-
quired, according to FEMA.
"However," he added,


"back in 1993, we had an
unnamed rain event which
dropped an abundance of
rain, and my home along
with many others in my
area was flooded. The limit-
ed history upon which the
flood zones are based did
not foresee the exceptional
* storm. I'm glad I bought
flood insurance.
Storm mitigation
Adequate insurance cov-
erage is just one of many
issues of concern in the
context of potential storm
impact. Caillouette has been
involved for the past 19 years
in the city's efforts to plan
ahead and be prepared for
all contingencies.
"When I came here from
Louisiana in 1987," he said,
"Planning Director Chuck
Place convinced City Man-
ager John MacLean that my
experience in the Gulf Coast
communities around New
Orleans, and particularly
with several hurricanes I
had witnessed first-hand,
would enable me to con-
tribute to the development
of the Venice Comprehensive
Plan where it needed to ad-
dress such issues.
"We started working on
the comprehensive plan


right away," said Caillouette,
"and in one way or another,
it has been an ongoing pro-
ject ever since, with many
updates based on new in-
formation.
"In 1994," he said, "I co-
ordinated the publication of
a pilot study for pre- and
post-hurricane mitigation
and development. It was
titled 'Creating a Hurricane
Tolerant Community,' and
was produced under a con-
tract with the Florida Divi-
sion of Emergency Manage-
ment and FEMA.
"That study," he contin-
ued, "received the Outstand-
ing Public Study Award for
1994, from the Florida Plan-
ning and Zoning Associa-
tion, and became a model
program to assist other hur-
ricane-vulnerable local gov-
ernments nationally."
"One of the main points
in effective mitigation," he
said, "is that it has to be a
joint effort of all the city
departments, as well as the
many county, state and fed-
eral agencies which may
have resources available.
"Unfortunately," said Cail-
louette, "that kind of team-
work and systematic cooper-
ation was missing in the
Gulf Coast area when Katrina


came to them last year.
"In fact," he said, "Louis-
iana State University ran a
model of possible storm
surge effects several days
before the storm hit New
Orleans. Their predictions,
which turned out to be ac-
curate, were presented to
various authorities, but nev-
er reached the public. The
authorities did not properly
respond, and the public had
no idea what was coming
and how bad it might be.
"Many lives could have
been saved," he concluded,
"if the information had been
communicated appropriate-
ly, and evacuations had been
implemented in time. In-
stead, the public was just
given the same old warnings
they had heard so many
times before, and to which
they had basically stopped
listening warnings which
were too repetitive and am-
biguous to get the people's
attention."
Venice has a plan
'"After seeing how the
wheels of government came
to a grinding halt when
Katrina hit the Gulf Coast,"
said Caillouette, "I feel very
strongly that all commun-
ities in these areas must


have systems, plans and pro-
grams in place to keep ser-
vices available after such
events.
"The city of Venice has for
years been actively and sys-
tematically addressing such
issues in advance," he said.
"Venice has always been
blessed with strong leader-
ship people who had a
clear vision of both the ex-
isting needs and the poten-
tial problems.
'"As a result," he said, "we
have a Local Mitigation Stra-
tegic Plan, which is reviewed
annually based on the previ-
ous year's events and any
new information we get at
our conferences.
'A few years ago," he said,
"the city manager's office
implemented the NPOD
Program Neighborhood
Points of Distribution, which
are set up immediately after

changed a lot since I moved
here in 1987," said Caillou-

new influences and ideas, so
we see a process of continu-

"For example," he said, "a
decade ago no one wanted
sidewalks in their neighbor-

were given all the attention.
Now the focus is on 'con-
nectivity' from one neighbor-

that's the kind of citizens we

NeXt Generation awaits next superintendent


hat Gary Norris sure is full of surprises.
Just six months after persuading
county voters to fund his NeXt
Generation learning plan by continuing an
additional tax on themselves for another four
years, he announced his intent to leave his
job as school superintendent by June 30.
The stated reason he gave for resigning is
that the plan faces "unimaginable road-
blocks" in Sarasota County.
His decision not to fight the good fight is a
shame, because the plan has many good
points, not least of which is the theme that
teaching the way it's been done for the last 50
years isn't going to be nearly good enough
over the next 50.
The plan itself has few real critics. It ran
into opposition mostly because Norris tried
to do too much too soon and didn't get "buy-
in" at the school level.
Change is hard, and teachers aren't


immune from the urge to stick with the
familiar and comfortable instead of trying
something new. How, though, is commit-
ment to the plan going to be built if the man
who came up with it isn't willing to stay here
to see it through?
And how do his supporters feel, having
pushed so hard to renew the 1-mill property
tax to fund a plan, only to have him decide
the county isn't ready for it?
In his resignation letter Norris said, "The
past several months have been unneces-
sarily tumultuous and have exacted a huge
toll on my family and me." No doubt that's
true.
The school board's "meets expectations"
review of him was hardly the ringing
endorsement he would have been hoping
for. The vote to approve his budget was 3-2,
and he took a considerable amount of heat
from from us and many others well


deserved, in our opinion, and extending to
the board over the failure to timely
address a lower-than-expected student cen-
sus last year.
He appeared to have weathered those
storms, however, and we didn't see in the
results of the Sept. 5 primary any reason for
him to be concerned the board would tip
against him.
Still, if he no longer has the drive to see
NeXt Generation through to fruition, it's best
that he step aside. But who is going to do it if
not him?
Unless the new superintendent comes
from within the district, we find it hard to
believe he or she will adopt NeXt Generation
lock, stock and barrel. That means to some
extent the process will have to start over.
Maybe that turns out for the best, but it
definitely means delay, to the detriment of
some of our students.


Word about Norris' resignation had barely
gotten around Thursday before people
began speculating whether there were other
reasons behind it.
His resignation letter states he hasn't been
enjoying his job recently, adding cryptically,
"I think it is best for the school board, the
school district and my profession that I not
elaborate any further."
We hope Norris thinks better of his deci-
sion to resign. He's smart enough to learn
from his mistakes and become a better
superintendent, making this a better district
in the process.
If he's determined to leave, however, we
hope his commitment to our children is such
that he will elaborate on the "unimaginable
roadblocks" he decided he couldn't over-
come.
His successor will have to deal with them,
and will need all the help he or she can get.


We're sad, surprised, puzzled


BOB VEDDER
PITBI.! !


Dr. Gary Norris has decid-
ed to leave the post as super-
intendent of schools he took a
couple of years ago because
recent months. .'have, pn
unifiebessarily turnulhuous"
and there are "unimaginable
roadblocks" to his NeXt
Generation plan.
Let me start by saying I
would like him to reconsider,
as I have always liked him and
felt that he was a very good
superintendent, even though
I have been critical' of a cou-
ple of the things he has done,
particularly as they relate to
funding.
Gary is a hard-charging
visionary with a great person-
ality. He has a nice sense of
humor and certainly has been
in front of the public a lot,
much of that to promote his
vision and get more money.
Many will feel betrayed
that he sold them a huge tax
continuation and then left
town without being there to
implement it. That may dam-
age the district in the future
on voting for increases.
If the district only hangs on
to a superintendent for a few
years, it will make it tough to
have consistency in direction.
Certainly the last four super-
intendents have had very
diverse styles. It is very dis-
ruptive, changing directions
so often.
I remember asking Gary
how long he intended on
staying, since he had been in
many jobs and seemed, as he
puts it, to like to be "an agent
of change." He told me he
wanted this to be his last job.
Gary seems to be putting
the blame on others. I cannot
imagine how anyone with his
great intellect could think he
could change an educational
system in a district as large as
Sarasota County in a very
short time. This is no Salina,
Kan.
I think for him to have
thought the last few months
would be easy is very naive.
Not only did he have the tax
vote, but some of his bosses
were up for re-election. That
has to bring tension. Is he just
too thin-skinned?
Voting on that big a tax was
going to take its toll, I don't
think he has let things settle
down.
Any big change, like his
NeXt Generation plan, was


going to take time, patience
and hard work. He apparently
wasn't willing to work in that
framework.
He admits his failing was
that he tried to do too many
things too fast without good
communication. Sarasota
High block scheduling and a
consulting group out of
Kansas that was dropped on
high schools were just a cou-
ple of the examples of hasty
attempts at change.
The education system in
our country did not develop
this way overnight and will
riot likely change that quickly
either. The unions will be one
reason, although ours has
been better than most. I think
impending battles with them
is also a concern.
Many of us, including Dr.
Norris, hope change happens
quickly, but realistically it will
take time.
It seems as though his
vision for the high schools,
where there has been little or
no progress in our county, is
where he has felt most frus-
trated. School-based deci-
sion-making seems to be a
big impediment to making
change.
Each school has a team
from its faculty and commu-
nity that outlines what is best
for that school. That means a
lot of groups to go through to
get things accomplished.
That has some good points,
and obviously also is a road-
block to expedient change.
I wonder sometimes how
well our school district boss-
es, especially the head of the
school board, communicate
with their manager. A few
years back I spoke with
Charles Fowler, who was our
last long-term superinten-
dent, and he said in NewYork,
where he went from here, the
atmosphere was so much
better and so much less diffi-
cult. He said he had much less
interference.
I think the Florida model of
the state doing the funding
and managing from on top
makes for a lot of challenges
for boards that don't happen
in other states.
. I do notknowhowwell Gary
communicated to school
board chair Carol Todd his dis-
pleasure, but it would seem
that in a good working relation-
ship that would have taken
place and they would have
tried to work through his chal-
lenges. Maybe he felt there
were just too many obstacles to
even try.,
Now we have implement-
ed a huge increase in the cost
structure of the county
schools that can not be easily
changed. The next superin-
tendent will need to live with
this while trying to mold his
or her vision to the NeXt

LETTERS FROM OUR ADERS


Late editorial was a dirty trick


Editor:
Thanks for a good editorial about the candidates when "they
inundate us with ads full of innuendoes, half-truths and out-
right falsehoods about their opponents." But does this also
apply when your newspaper does exactly the same as this to a
candidate? -
Your two days before the primary attack on candidate Doug
Holder's campaign is in exactly, in the same category that you
complain about. The title, "Don't reward stealth candidate's
dirty tricks," was a very catchy political dirty trick in itself.
This "recommendation" was picked up by all of the oppos-
ing candidates' supporters and e-mailed all day Sunday and
Monday. I received it four times, some from prominent
Republican Party leaders.
You did more than recommend a candidate; you tried to
change the outcome of the Republican primary.
In your opening paragraph you said that "we don't become
advocates for the candidates who earn our endorsements or
critics of their opponents." You should follow your own policy.
Or is it OK for this newspaper to use its mass circulation to
pull its own, last-minute campaign dirty trick?

Norman A. MacLellan
Venice

Editor's Note: As the editorial stated, we felt that extraordinary cir-
cumstances justified bringing to light the tactics Holder was using -
successfully, as it turned out. Since we will be considering an endorse-
ment in this race for the general election, we hope you will elaborate on
the "innuendoes, half-truths and outright falsehoods"you think the edi-
torial contained.


Things not getting
better in Iraq

Editor:
I am writing in regard to
Lillian lannarone's letter. She
said it's amazing how many
people in Florida live in a fog.
I think she is the one who's
living in a fog.
A big percentage of people
are against Bush; even some
in his own party don't agree
with some of his issues. He


has led this country down the
wrong path since he was
elected president.
One of the big mistakes he
made was going to war in
Iraq. He lied to the American
people when he said Saddam
had weapons of mass
destruction. He should have
gone' for bin Laden and
maybe today we wouldn't
have so much terrorism.
Where is Iraq better off
today? Everyday you hear


civilians and our soldiers get-
ting killed. Pretty soon it will
turn into a civil war, which
maybe it already is. Then you
can say our soldiers died for
nothing.
Bush also called North
Korea an axis of evil. That was
a stupid statement to make;
they have nuclear weapons
that can reach the United
States, and Iran can do the
same.
There are a lot of countries
that hate us because of Bush.
We have to get on the right
path again with these coun-
tries and the only way to do
that is to make a change.
I think the Democrats can
do the job because the
Republicans just don't match
up. Lillian, 'let's think of now
and not the past, OK?
Oh, by the way, did you see
in the Sept. 15 paper where 25
United States soldiers were
injured in Baghdad? So where
is everything better?

Take a lesson
from Ohio depot

Editor:
I read the article about the
Venice Train Depot and
thought they would like some
input on a depot from my
hometown of Dennison,
Ohio, population less than
3,000.
The depot was built in
1873, used as a stopping


point for United States
troops, and has been renovat-
ed and is a tourist site, and
site of many events. Engine,
caboose and rail cars have
been donated by different
companies throughout Ohio.
The Web site for the depot is
dennisondepot.org.
Hope this can be'useful to
those in charge of the renova-
tion of the site in Venice, giv-
ing some idea of what can be
done and saving grounds
around the area for tourism.

How dare illegals protest!

Airport work takes an extra day


Caspersen Bridge reopens


STAFF REPORT

Public access to the island
east of Caspersen Beach,
including the parking lot,
playground, pavilion, kayak
launch and pedestrian bridge
leading to the beach from the
Venetian Waterway Trail over
the Caspersen Beach Bridge,
will resume effective Monday,
Sept. 25.
The bridge has been
closed since March to
accommodate the $1.36 mil-
lion construction project,
which included the replace-
ment of the bridge. Some
finishing touches to the


bridge will be made over the
next few weeks, but the work
should not impact vehicular
or pedestrian traffic. The
work is expected to be com-
pleted in early October.
The short-span Caspersen
Beach Bridge was more than
50 years old, and was at the
end of its design life. The new
bridge is designed to provide
safe and reliable access to the
island for 75 years.
Construction was funded
by the infrastructure surtax
(penny sales tax) and gasoline
taxes. Lucas' Marine Con-
struction LLC of Stuart, was
the contractor.

It seemed nearly impossi-
ble that so much work could
be completed in just five days.
And it couldn't.
The Venice Municipal
Airport will continue to be
closed to aviation traffic until
today (Sunday) at approxi-
mately 3 p.m., due to con-
struction of the intersection
of the two runways.
The airport was originally
set to reopen Saturday. Due to
the delay, a provision in the
contract with APAC will call
for it to pay a penalty in the
amount amount of $5,500 per
day.
The rehabilitation project
has proven to be quite com-
plex. The initial project was
strictly for paving, but prelim-
inary testing prior to the bid-
ding process revealed the
bedrock beneath it had crum-
bled.
Then, once contractors
removed the existing asphalt,
they discovered the 65-year-
old pipesunderneath it had
collapsed. The concrete pipe
was ordered, necessitating a
delay in starting the project.

two 600-foot-long sections of

30-inch concrete pipe were
laid. A recent visit to the air-
port showed work vehicles of
all shapes and sizes and
dozens of workers busily
doing their part to complete
this project.
A paving machine used to
lay the pavement down has to
roll it with a large, heavy roller
to get to the right density-- a
procedure required by the
Florida Department of
Transportation. Once rolled,
it's packed down and a core
test is done (this involves
using a cylinder to do labora-
tory checks). The final step is
paved test trips to insure uni-
formity, quality and. consis-
tency in the work.
1,300 tons
The Federal Aviation Ag-
ency requires the strict moni-
toring of asphalt temperature
to insure proper density in
the finished product. The first
pass of the roller might yield 4
inches, but by the time the
workers are through, it will be
pressed down to 1/2 inch.
"The focus of the project is
the intersection of runways 4-
22 and 13-31. When 4-22 is
repaired, they won't have to


shut down the intersection or
runway 13-31 because the
intersection is already fixed,"
said Venice Aviation Society
President Nick Carlucci. "On
Thursday alone, they laid
1,300 tons of asphalt. All of it
passed the tests."
The work has been moni-
tored in its entirety by MEA
Consulting Group, an outside
engineer, under the watchful
eye of Venice Municipal
Airport General Manager
Fred Watts.
When the airport reopens
to air traffic, only Runway
4/22 will be activated.
Runway 13/31 remains
under construction, with an
opening date closer to the
first week of November. At
that time there will be new
runways, lighting and mark-
ings.
"The work that has been
done out here has been phe-
nomenal, but 3 p.m. Sunday
is still my best estimate, based
on the men, weather, equip-
ment in use and the hours
that they're scheduled to
work," said Watts.

A Venice psychologist who
testified in the LaMorte sexu-
al abuse trial said he would
continue working with the
two victims even if he is not
paid.
"I think that deserves some
recognition," said Venice
attorney Robert Harrison,
who represents one of the vic-
tims.
The psychologist is Dr.
Chris Cortman.
James LaMorte Sr., 64, a
former Venice High School
swim coach, was sentenced
to 21 years in prison earlier
this week for sexually abusing
the two victims who filed
charges. At least three other
victims had come forward in
2005, but the state attorney's
office elected to prosecute
regarding only two. The inci-
dents happened more than


Xv


25 years ago.
, In the week prior to
LaMorte's sentencing, both
victims were in counseling
with Cortman, who special-
izes in sex abuse cases.
"He testified about the
extreme emotional ..impactL
this incident had on each vic-
tim," Harrison said.
Harrison said a lot of the-
victims' trauma was guilt.
"They kept thinking if they,
could have come forward'
sooner," he said, "maybe
LaMorte wouldn't have had
other victims."
Harrison said the victims
have generally suffered from
alcohol abuse, marital prob-
lems and domestic violence.
He said that bad memories
of what LaMorte did to them
affects their relations with
women.

run bests

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Another Saturday, another
wet cross country course.
The Venice High girls and
boys harriers ran in the
North Port Invitational on
Saturday a place that was
dumped on by a thunder-
storm Friday night.
Despite the big wet, two
Lady Indians ran personal
bests. Sarah Britton finished
eighth, traversing the 3-mile
course in 22 minutes, 13 sec-
onds. Kim Pinkerton, was
14th in 22:30.
Their times were a min-
ute faster than the previous
week in the Lemon Bay In-
vitational.
Team-wise, the Venice
girls were sixth out of 11
schools. Manatee was first,
just a point ahead of Mari-
ner.
For the second week in a
row, the Lady Indians were
missing Chelsea Rose, who
is one of the top runners on
the team. She is finally
healthy but hasn't practiced
in a week and a half.
Erin McCullough was
22nd in 24:28. Veronica Ba-
dourova was 30th in 24:50.
Emily Korszen came home
in 25:19. Jessica Konecnik
ran a 26:00.
Jessica Hafey of Palmetto
was the winner, running a
21:17.
In the boys race, North
Port's James Grantham raced
home first with time of 16:54.
He was roughly 200 yards
ahead of Lemon Bay's Nick
Guiliano, who wai second in
17:28.38.
Grantham won his third
straight meet. He captured
the Venice and Lemon Bay
invitationals the past two
weeks.

Storm saves



Indians against




Booker Nation


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


As far as the Indian faithful
were concerned, Friday night's
surprise storm couldn't have
struck Newtown at a better
time.
Venice trailed Booker Na-
tion, 28-0. The Indians had
just failed on a fourth and one
as running back Al Mitchell
slipped on the wet turf. The
Tornadoes took over in Venice
territory and were once again
threatening.
Then a lightning bolt hit
close to the stadium. With 7
minutes, 21 seconds left
before halftime, the officials
ordered both teams to their
respective locker rooms.
The rain let up and it ap-
peared the teams might get a


chance to finish their n
district contest. But then tl
was another cloudburst
another round of lightning
Game over.
All in all, it amounted
nothing more than a glori
scrimmage.
Wiped out were th
touchdown runs by Boc
running back Javaris Neal.
On the bright side,
storm also erased four tu
overs and a couple of ill-til
penalties committed
Venice.
It was ugly from the get
for the Green and White.

kickoff and went nowh

Boys golfers



improve to 14-1


BY KEN HAGGERTY
CORRESPONDENT


It was business as usual
for the Venice High boys golf
this past week, as the Do-
bitsch duo maintained its
rich seam of success.
, At Long Marsh Golf Club,
Indians' captain Chris Do-
bitsch and brother Eric each
shot 36, fighting off an ag-
gressive Lemon Bay High
School to win 149-153.
Two days later at Naples
Beach Club, the Dobitsch
brothers combined with Brian
Doyle and Billy Stevens to
romp home, spanking Naples
off the course by seven shots
and Lely a whopping 20.
It was, quite simply, a dis-
play confirming the Indians'
status as the county's best.
Now with a record of 14-1, the
question is, can the momen-
tum last?
"Its working out as well as
we can expect," coach Marty
Tarala said.
Now with the regular sea-
son drawing to a close, am-
bitions are turning to the
district and regional tourna-
ments. After that, who
knows? However, Tarala
maintains a suitably temper-
ed outlook for the weeks
ahead. Neither cautious nor
overly triumphant, his philos-
ophy is "steady as she goes."
That said, having taken
the Indians to state before,
patience is the quality he
requires from his charges as
a possible return visit to the
"Big Show' beckons.
It's a scenario that's easy to


envisage. Last week, the In-
dians displayed maturity be-
yond their years with. back-
to-back wins on foreign soil.
And while Coach Tarala in-
sists the team is "on the right
path" his admiration for the
teen. golfers together with a
winning resume ensures the
whole team will play a part in
its ultimate success, both as
individuals and as a cohesive
unit.
"The boys are very posi-
tive," he explains. "Our atti-
tude is that we're here to win.
But golf is tough. To keep it
intact mentally for nine or 18
holes is extremely difficult.
You simply can't maintain a
winning level week-in and
week-out. But if any of the
boys have had a bad day at
the office, they're quick to
get back on top they don't
dwell on the negatives."
But Tarala knows his is a
fledgling team, with Chris
Dobitsch the lone Indian
who has served a four-year
term. However, this alleged
lack of depth is of no conse-
quence to the veteran coach's
aspirations. "Yes. It's true we
have somewhat of a young
team," he says.
And, as everyone knows,
golf is an individual game, so
it can be difficult to impart
advice or knowledge to our
younger players.
"But make no mistake,"
Tarala says. "What our team
may lack in experience fails
to make a dent in our talent
'and enthusiasm. We'll go as
far as we can go with no
regrets."

The scoreboard tells the grim story as rain begins to fall during the second quarter at Booker
High. Lightning forced the players off the field a few minutes later and the game was ultimately
cancelled.


umrn- Included was a sack by
med Isaiah Carpenter and Andrew
by Czuprynski. Then on third

It took Booker four plays
to cover 66 yards, making it

IMPERIAL BLIND & SHUTTER

"Making Your House a Home!"



SHU I IKS NOW ON SALE
LOQVN CHAT OPENS SIXTH CENTER 148


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Until you have sailed
aboard a Maine schooner,
you haven't really been sail-
ing.
Marrying into a family of
sailors, I have had plenty of
opportunities to sail in big
boats and small boats. I have
raced overnight aboard a
Tartan 10 from Mentor Har-
bor in Ohio, to Misery Bay
near Erie, Pa. I have spent
nights aboard my in-laws' 34-
foot Alden sloop, one of the
grand old wooden sailboats. I
have spent other nights
aboard that 10, sometimes
rafted together with other
boats in a crowded channel
where we were escaping a
storm. I have handled a
canoodle on Lake Rosseau,
tacking into the wind to
maneuver the little ca-
noe/sailboat across the tiny
lake.
None of it prepared me for
the joy of sleeping in the
lower bunk of a tiny cabin
aboard the Schooner Her-
itage, which sails out of Rock-
land, Maine, under the guid-
ance of its builders and cap-
tains, Doug and Linda Lee.
For six nights my daughter,
Heidi, and I shared cabin 10
amidships, climbing topside
to use the marine head or
take a shower and going top-
side and then down into the


galley for breakfast and din-
ner. With three heavy red
wool blankets apiece and hot
and cold running water in our
cabin, we were quite comfy in
our little home away from
home. Most of the time we
were topside, enjoying our
new friends and fellow
sailors, hoisting sails, coiling
ropes, eating far more than
we should have and mostly
just kicking back and enjoy-
ing the beauty of Penobscot
Bay.
Passengers and crew
Of the 26 passengers, 11
were repeat sailors. One cou-
ple have been aboard this
ship each summer for 20 of
the last 21 years. Another pas-
senger was back for his 40th
trip and one man was there
for the sixth time this sum-
mer. A Texas couple spent
their honeymoon on board
the Heritage. This year they
were back for their 25th wed-
ding anniversary.
Built in 1983 at their North
End Boatyard in Rockland,
the 145-foot-long boat mea-
sures 95 feet on deck, is 24
feet wide and draws 8 feet
unless its centerboard is low-
ered. Then it draws 18 feet.
Inspired by the great old
schooners that plied the
waters of Maine and continue
to do so today, the Heritage
has a few more creature com-
forts. There are stairs instead


of ladders, higher ceilings, hot
and cold-running water in all
the cabins and even a shower
aboard.
There's a donkey
on board
Totally powered by sail, the
Heritage. has all the modern
navigation necessities for
safety such as onboard radar,
Marine radio and GPS. An
antique donkey engine on
deck is used for pulling up the
anchor and for hoisting sails
in case of a passenger mutiny.
There was no mutiny on our
cruise nor would I expect one.
Who could even think such
thoughts given the wonderful
captains and crew. Doug and
Linda Lee have been running
their floating bed and break-
fast operation ever since they
got out of college and sal-
vaged the old Isaac Evans. By
the time they built the Her-
itage, they were experts who
designed the perfect ship for
their and our needs. Higher
ceilings, running water and
flushing marine heads do not
detract from the windjammer
ambiance, but certainly make
for a more comfortable expe-
rience. Outlets enabled us to
keep cell phones and laptops
charged for the duration. Hair
driers are frowned upon. The
fashion of the day was wash
and wear, khaki or the new

Artist offers support
for dialing 2-1-1























PHOTO COURTESY OF NAPSA
In an effort to focus national attention on the need to
develop and fund a consistent three-digit information
dialing system nationwide, Louisiana-born artist
George Rodrigue created and donated an image of his
well-known Blue Dog mired in red tape. The painting
is to be used to represent the need for using the 2-1-1
phone number nationwide. Rodrigue believes last
year's Gulf Coast storms demonstrated the need for a
single three-digit phone number for information
on community services, volunteering and human
service information and referrals that would be used
nationally. Visit 211 .org or, to find out more about

Trumpeting an elephant's success


STAFF REPORT
One conservation group
has worked to help ensure
that elephants are not forgot-
ten and recently, it has cel-
ebrated some enormous suc-
cesses.
On April 6, 2006, a healthy,
295-pound, female Asian ele-
phant named Mable was
born at the Ringling Bros. and
Barnum & Bailey Center for
Elephant Conservation (CEC)
in central Florida. The $5 mil-
lion breeding and retirement
facility was founded by Ring-
ling Bros. to help conserve
and study Asian elephants.
This year marks the 11th
anniversary of the CEC.
Built in 1995, the Ringling
Bros. CEC is a 200-acre, state-
of-the-art facility that looks
after new and retired circus
elephants. Elephants in the


wild are threatened by poach-
ers many of whom hunt
the animals for their ivory
tusks-and by the destruction
of their natural habitat. It's
believed that facilities such as
the Ringling Bros. CEC could
help elephants thrive once
again.
The Ringling Bros. CEC
also welcomes conservation
researchers and scientists,
such as Bets Rasmussen of
the University of Oregon, who
is studying elephant phe-
romones, which are emitted
by older male elephants and
influence both a female ele-
phant's interest in mating and
how other surrounding ele-
phants behave.
The Ringling Bros. CEC
facility is considered to be
among the most accom-
plished Asian elephant
breeding programs outside of


Southeast Asia and it is dedi-
cated to the reproduction,
research and retirement of
the endangered Asian ele-
phant.
To date, 20 Asian elephants
have been born at the facility,
including Irvin andAree, both
arriving just last year. The
pachyderms will enjoy a life
of fine dining at the preserve
(the elephants there eat about
2.5 tons of hay daily). Just as
important, though, the ele-
phants could help people
learn more about the species.
Scientists say elephant
numbers are dwindling
worldwide. In fact, it's estimat-
ed that only 35,000 Asian ele-
phants are left on the planet.
For more information, visit
elephantcenter.com.
Information from NAPSA
and the Elephant Center were
used in this report.

New name, new facility for


therapeutic riding program

STAFF REPORT F J E 2 1A W Im


What was previously
known as the Smith Center,
a not-for-profit organization
that provides hippotherapy
for special-needs riders, now
has a new name: InStride.
Hippotherapy uses specially
trained horses to improve the
gait or stride of each rider. A
committee from the Smith
Center worked with a market-
ing professional to create a
name that would represent
all the program's past ac-
complishments, current suc-
cess, as well as its bright
future.
"This name encompasses
so much of who we are and
what we do," said Donna
Blem, Executive Director of
InStride. "In the purest mo-
ment of hippotherapy you
'will not only see the rider
moving in rhythm with their
horse's legs, but also the
leader's and sidewalkers'
footfalls will match the
horse's footfalls. This is the
purest moment when every-
o'ne is InStride," Blem said.

the current 76-acre site in
Nokomis and it is scheduled
for completion in spring

include new barn space for
the horses as well as a cover-

In addition, there will .be
outdoor riding areas, ex-

a Family Center, which will
give families access to re-

/ Certified Audiologist
Q. A friend of mine has a
hearing aid which has had
to go into the shop for a lot
of repairs. Why?
A. The vast majority of
repairs are 100% pre-
ventable. More than 75% of
all hearing aid repairs are
due to moisture and earwax
accumulating in the hearing
aid. It. is extremely
important to clean the entire
hearing aid every tinie it is'
removed from your ear by
wiping and brushing it.
There are also desiccants
called dry-aid kits which
absorb moisture .and
circulates air aro e
internal co S.
Preventative maint s
the key to a tro e
hearing aid. is
recommended you your
audiologist every 3 months
for cleaning and main-
tenance. The Audiologists
at Woodmere Hearing and
Balance Center, Inc. can
run an electronic test to
determine if your hearing
aid is operating at original
specifications. Call either our
Venice office at (941)492-4327

ressions say it all


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
COLUMNIST

Okey dokey, where in the
Sam Hill did I leave my dad-
burned glasses? Well, I'll be
Billy-be-darned if you've been
horns-waggled agin when
you bought that durned mule.
That's a hum-digger of a fish
you caught and the way yur
fix-in it is hunky dorey.
At lunch the other day I
was asking my table mates for
some expressions they had
heard in the past, but would
you believe it, I could not
remember what they were
when I got back to my room?
Well, anyway, I was think-
ing about colorful expressions
I


we have all heard. No, I am
not talking about the three-,
four-, five-, six-, seven-, eight-
and nine-letter words now
commonly used in business
and government. Do they
really express the speaker's
opinion any more effectively?
I dunno!
My friend, Jeanne, tells me
they even creep into some TV
shows. And these were words
that were considered dirty
words when I was growing up,
but we all grew up in different
environments.
My daughter-in-law, Betsy,
tells me a business term is
"Pick the low grapes first." Of
course I should have known
what that meant but being a
little dimwitted, I had to ask. I
guess a broad meaning is to
get the small things done first
or get rid of the "piddly"
things first.
Yvette, the nice young lady
who leads our Saturday
morning Trivia, tells me one
of today's expressions is
"cheese and rice," so as not to
use Christ's name in vain.
This probably came from


Cockney rhyming slang for
Jesus Christ.
The other day I recalled my
father saying something
about a doggone well. As a lit-
tle child I would say "Daddy,
the dog isn't gone." Crimen-
entfly is another you may have
heard of.
Most of us remember gee
willikers, but where in the
world did by George come
from? Another favorite of my
father's was Jehoshaphat but
Jeanne remembers it as
jumping Jehoshaphat, who
was King of Judalh and a
peace broker, even m those
days.
If you have read my
columns, you know what my
own high-faluting expression
has become: I dunno!

If you
are a high
school athlete who has
sustained a head, injury,
you might get the notion
that there is something
"heroic" about immediately
returning to the game. The fact is,
however, that a second concussion
may prove to be far worse than the
first. A rare but potentially fatal
condition known as "second-impact
syndrome" can occur when an athlete
who has suffered a concussion
experiences a second blow while the
brain is still vulnerable. The second blow
does not have to be very strong for its
effects to be deadly or permanently
disabling. It is estimated that more than
300,000 sports- and recreation-related
traumatic brain injuries occur in this
country annually. There is nothing
heroic about that statistic.

P.S. A concussion is a type of
traumatic injury that occurs when a
blow jostles the brain inside the skull.

PHOTO COURTESY OF THE TRAVERSE CITY CONVENTION & VISITORS BUREAU
Thousands of young performers from around the world gather each summer at the famed
Interlochen Center of the Arts near Traverse City. The acclaimed summer camp is also home to a
year-round arts academy, so its pine-shaded lakeside campus is an enchanting destination
almost any time of year. Venice-area entertainer Eric Watters attended Interlochen.


BY MIKE NORTON
GUESTWRITER

Somewhere back in these
towering pines, a lone cellist
is playing: an improvised mel-
ody, sweet and sad and full of
heartbreaking beauty.
In your mind's eye, you can
almost see her sitting on a
tree stump or at the threshold
of a cabin, gazing off toward
the lake as she draws her bow
across the strings.
Now a flute joins in, its sil-
very notes rippling up to the
sky... there's the sudden stut-
ter of a trumpet, a flurry of
drums. Suddenly, the forest is
alive with music not for the
first- time and certainly not
for the last.
That's the magic of Inter-
lochen, this enchanted place
"between the lakes" where
thousands of young musi-
cians, artists, dancers, writers
and, actors gather each year
to study, practice and per-
form. Part summer camp,
part boarding school, part
concert hall, the Interlochen
Center for the Arts is also a
wonderful place to enjoy
some of the world's most tal-
ented performers in an idyllic
setting of woods, water and
wonder.
"There's almost always
something inspiring happen-
ing on Interlochen's cam-
pus," said Interlochen presi-
dent Jeffrey Kimpton. "Inter-
lochen'. welcomes visitors
throughout the year for per-
formances, readings and art
exhibitions."
Plenty of people take them
up on that invitation, too.
Despite its secluded forest
setting (about 20 minutes
from downtown Traverse City)
Interlochen is a magnet for
lovers of music, drama and
dance. More than 200,000
visitors come here each year
to enjoy a wide range of con-
certs, plays, recitals and ex-
hibitions.
Many are drawn by the
glamour and excitement of
the celebrated Interlochen
Arts Festival, which features
big-name stars (the 2006 sea-
son includes B.B. King, the
Beach Boys, Big Bad Voodoo
Daddy and the Avalon String
Quartet) as well as Inter-
lochen's own World Youth
Orchestra. In summer, festival
concerts typically take place in


Kresge Auditorium, a vast
3,929-seat open-air hall
where the gleaming waters of
Green Lake provide an un-
forgettable backdrop for the
performers. In cooler times
of the year, the schedule
shifts to nearby Corson Aud-
itorium, with 920 seats, de-
signed by Michigan architect
Alden Dow.
But you don't have to buy
a festival ticket to enjoy some
of that Interlochen magic.
Visitors are welcome here,
and on almost any day of the
year there are helpful tour
guides willing to escort you
down the, tree-shaded lanes
and through the quaint field-
stone buildings as young'
performers practice, rehearse
and play on every side.
The atmosphere is partic-
ularly heady during the
summer months, when the
renowned Interlochen Arts
Camp brings 4,000 students,
staff and faculty here from
every state and more than 40
foreign countries. They're
everywhere, in al ages and
shapes, dressed in the tradi-
tional Interlochen uniform
(light blue shirts, dark blue
knickers for girls and dark
blue slacks for boys.) But the
1,200-acre campus is busy
even after September arrives,
since it's also home to the
Interlochen Arts Academy,
whose 455 students and 81,
faculty members produce
over 250 concerts, plays and
exhibidons of their own.
This kind of artistic ferment
is exactly what music educat-
or Joe Maddy had in mind
back in 1928 when he cre-
ated what was originally
known as the National Music
Camp, bringing luminaries
like John Philip Sousa here
to work with talented kids.
(Sousa's march "The Pines"
was written for Interlochen,
although the Camp's best-
known musical signature is a
passage from the Romantic
Symphony of American com-
poser Howard Hanson, who
also taught here in the early
days. Known as the Inter-
lochen Theme, it's played
slowly and majestically at the
end of every World Youth
Symphony concert.)
Over the years, Interlochen
has graduated more than its
share of talented musicians,
actors and dancers from

Emmy-winner Felicity Huff-
man of "Desperate House-
wives" to folk/pop vocalist
Jewel and even Mike
Wallace of "60 Minutes." And
all that creative Interlochen
energy has had a profound
effect on the Traverse City
area, too nurturing a vi-
brant cultural milieu where
galleries and studios, jam
sessions and chamber re-
citals, museums and movie
festivals all jostle for space
and attention.
Visiting Interlochen
Concerts at Interlochen
are always a great experi-
ence, and you can find a full
schedule by contacting their
web site at interlochen.org/
arts festival/festivalcalen-
dar. Tickets can be ordered on
line or by calling the Inter-
lochen Arts Festival box office
at (800) 681-5920. Visiting
during the daytime is almost
as easy. You'll need an escort
(it is a school after all) but
during the summers there
are regular one-hour tours at
10 a.m. and 2 p.m. leaving
from the campus gift shop
- known as the Scholarshop
- andyou can arrange your
own visit simply by calling
ahead at (231) -276-7200 or
checking in at the Scholar-
shop information kiosk, open
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during
the camp season.
Where to eat
No' visit to Interlochen
would be complete without a
visit to the Melody Freeze,
the center's student-run ice
cream stand, located in a
circular fieldstone building at
the edge of the main plaza
that leads to Kresge Aud-
itorium. Waiting in line for a
twist cone at The Freeze is
an age-old tradition at Inter-
lochen and a particularly
welcome one on warm sum-
mer days.

drink can be found down the

Harrison's hints


for homeowners


RICHARD HARRISON
I-,I. K COLUMNIST


Having possessed seven
houses or condominiums in
my lifetime, as well as residing
in a few apartments requiring
periodic maintenance or
repair, I have discovered four
nuggets of wisdom everyone
who ever owned a mortgage
or paid rent should heed.
, To be accurate, these are
more than hints. In all mod-
esty, I should title this "Har-
rison's axioms for homeown-
ers." An axiom being a princi-
ple that holds true at all times
in all circumstances. My dic-
tionary adds: "a self-evident
truth."
I am not, by natural incli-.
nation, a do-it-yourselfer, but
because necessity is the
"munv-a" of invention there
have been times I've taken
tools in hand to repair or'
improve something around


the house. Leaking faucet?
Clogged drain? Nonfunc-
tioning light switch? Replace a
tile? Put up a shelf? How

tough can that be? Will those
of you that have said that,
raise your hand? (Not the one
with the scraped knuckles,
please.)
Here is Harrison's Home-
owner's Axiom, Number One:
There is no such thing as a
"small" job. It only appears
small because you are looking
at it from the wrong end of the
telescope. For instance, I ran
across a pretty little wooden
shelf about 14 inches wide at
a household auction. Paid
$1.50 put it away figuring
I'd find the perfect spot. When
I moved to a new home a few
months later, sure enough
there it was, right over the
commode in the master bath.
What could be simpler? Two
screws through the uprights
at the bottom and dbne! It
was already painted white
and the wall was white. Wife,
however, noted it had a paint
chip or two and was a differ-
ent shade of white than the
wall. No problem hop in
the car and drive to Wal-Mart
to buy a can of spray paint.
With the paint, shelf now cost
$5.75, still a bargain. Time

HINTS from From last Green Sheet


PHOTO COURTESY OF
RICHARD HARRISON
When does a $1.50 shelf not
cost $1.50? According to
Harrison's axioms, it now
costs $66.45.

expended including drive to
and from, and two coats of
spray paint, an hour and 35
minutes.
Got out the level and elec-
tric drill, marked where screw
number one should be.
drilled the hole, shoved in a
plastic thingg" because it
was dry wall and set about
drilling the last hole. When
the drill bit broke, I realized
there was cinder block behind
that dry wall. I also realized I
had no carbide bit for cinder
block or lead plug to stick in
the hole. No problem hop
in the car and head for Wal-
Mart.
Friends, carbide bits aren't
that cheap. With the bit and


plug the shelf now cost $13.50
not including tax. (Time
expended after drilling and
plugging, another hour and
55 minutes darned snow-
birds fill up the parking lot
and the afternoon traffic is
terrible when are they
heading home?)
Almost done, just the one
screw to go. I have a BIG box
of miscellaneous screws,
wood screws, flat heads,
round heads, Phillips, you
name it, many sizes and
shapes except for a 2-inch
metal thread to go into the
lead anchor.
Back in the car for a third
trip to Wal-Mart. I notice the
gas gauge registers minus
zero. I turn into the first gas
station I see all out of regu-
lar, just the $3 a gallon Extra
left. Fifteen gallons times
$3=$45 and there are two
snowbirds ahead of me.
Did you know you couldn't
buy one 2-inch metal thread
screw at Wal-Mart? You have
to buy the box of 100 for




Remodeling &
repair, kitchen &
bath cabinets,
painting & wall
paper, tile & grout,
doors & windows,
cage, caulking.


$7.95. Finally back home and
finish the job! (Time expend-
ed including the stop at the
gas station and fighting the
five o'clock "going home" traf-
fic, another two and a half
hours.)
As I admire my handiwork,
I realize I'm $66.45 out of
pocket and have spent six
hours and 10 minutes; not
counting the time it will take
to sweep up and put away the
tools. I call my wife to come
and admire my achievement.
She squints. "It's a trifle low on
the right (the cinder block
side)," she says.
Which brings us to Har-
rison's Homeowner's Axiom
Number Tvo: No matter how
the job turns out, your wife
will be sure it would have
been better to call an expert,
which leads irrevocably to.
Axiom Number Three: She is
probably right. After all, at $40
dollars an hour, the expert
would have driven here in his
own car, using his own gas,
used his own tools, finished

FUR FUN workshops for teachers

and everyone who works with kids


Bucs' best friend?


STAFF REPORT


The Humane Society of Sarasota County
will offer an exciting series of workshops for,
the 2006-2007 school year. Each workshop
will include lecture, demonstration, interac-
tive pet therapy sessions, and an optional
tour of the HSSC shelter. Handouts, Web sites
and material for further study will be provid-
ed.
The workshops are approved for in-ser-
vice credit by the School Board of Sarasota
County for; teachers, and ;certification is
pending for Manatee Counuy. Volunteers,
classroom aides, home-schooling parents
and anyone who works with children is also
encouraged to attend. Each workshop will
accept 20 participants, meeting in the HSSC's
Education Center at 2331 15th St., Sarasota.
Registration is required.
*Saturday, Sept. 30, 2-4 p.m.: "Lessons
Animals Teach" This workshop: provides
instruction for using humane education as
character education. Values such as respon-
sibility, respect and fairness, relate very well
to animal themes. The workshop will also
teach ways that interaction with animals can
be a deterrent to violent tendencies in chil-
dren. For teachers of grades 6-12.
* Saturday, Oct. 21, 2-4 p.m.: "Telling
Humane Stories" This workshop, geared
toward grades K-4 focuses on using animal
themes to tell stories about a variety of sub-
jects. Stories, especially about animals, cap-'
ture children's attention and delight them,
while also teaching. Story telling offers a
great way to teach valuable lessons.
* Saturday, Nov. 18,2-4 p.m.: "Humane Ed:
Focus on Middle School:" This workshop
instructs teachers of middle school classes
how to utilize humane principles in a variety
of curricula. Animal issues such as overpop-
ulation, vivisection and puppy mills can be
the basis for classroom lessons in math,
social studies, physical sciences and other


subjects.
* Saturday, Jan. 20,2-4 p.m.: "Humane Ed for
Children with Special Needs:" This workshop
focuses on ways that special education
teachers can use pet therapy to enrich the
learning experience for their students. The
cognitive and physical abilities of the chil-
dren will be considered, as well as their ages.
* Saturday, Feb. 17, 2-4 p.m.: "Humane Ed
for Pre-School Teachers:" This workshop
gives preschool teachers games and other
activities they can use to help the children
learn and develop social skills. There will be
handouts and discussions of the value of
helping kids develop compassion and empa-
thy for animals.
* Saturday, April 21, 2-4 p.m.: "Humane
Teens:" This workshop focuses on activities
appropriate for teen community service,
possible careers with animals, and classroom
activities that use humane principles.
Humane Education has proven to be a
valuable tool in reaching children of all ages.
There are many' lessons animals teach much
better than humans do. Animals are accept-
ing, nonjudgmental, and they're lots of fun to
work with.
While we will use certified pet-therapy
animals in the workshops, we will also
instruct participants in ways to use humane
education when animals cannot be present
in the classroom.
Kate Franklin and Dee Halpern are two of
only four humane educators in Florida who
have earned Certified Humane Education
Specialist (C.H.E.S.) status. C.H.E.S. certifica-
tion is awarded through the Humane Society
of the United States after the completion of
courses and exams on a-wide range of
humane education topics.
For more information about humane
education at HSSC, or to register for a work-'
shop, call 955-4131 and ask for Kate or Dee.

New breed of entrepreneurs barking up right tree


STAFF REPORT

Millions of under-appreci-
ated and unfulfilled Ameri-
can workers are looking for
new careers. Burned-out cor-
porate cube-dwellers long for
a better lifestyle. Entrepre-
neurial couples look to build
a business together. Early
retirees seek rewarding and
profitable second careers.
Whether labeled "free
agents" by author Dan Pink
or the "creative class" by
economist Richard Florida,
members of this new breed
are motivated to use their cre-
ative intelligence in careers
that are fulfilling and meet
their financial goals. Many
are trading in secure jobs for
career opportunities. that
align with their basic identity
and a desire for meaningful
work.
This growing trend toward


entrepreneurship is sweeping
across America, as traditional
workers seek greater control
of their futures. For example,
the $38+ billion pet industry
is booming-with continued
growth predicted. Many with
an entrepreneurial spirit are
exploring franchise owner-
ship in pet services, one of the
fastest-growing sectors in the
pet industry. One such com-
pany, called Bark Busters, is a
franchise that offers in-home
dog training. Founded in
Australia in 1989, it has been
operating in the U.S. since
June 2000 and now has more
than 300 offices worldwide.
"I have always loved and
owned dogs," said a Colorado
franchise owner. 'After
spending most of my life
working in retail," she said, "I
longed to work with dogs and
make a difference in the
world. After several meetings

with the company, I went on
a training session, and I knew
then that I was meant to do
this. Now I do what I love, and
get great satisfaction from
seeing a happy dog owner
who now has a well-behaved
dog."
Another franchise owner
left a 13-year Wall Street ca-
reer to purchase a franchise
in New Jersey. "Long before
my career on Wall Street, my
true passion was animals," he
explained. "When I met the
master trainers, I was imp-
ressed with their enthusiasm
and professionalism. Since
then, I've never looked back.'
As a franchise owner, I make a
good living and have a less
stressful lifestyle helping
clients gain greater. control
over their dogs using natural
training techniques."
"Dog-loving entrepreneurs
find our positive approach to
'^


dog training very appealing
and are attracted by the fact
that we have no large com-
petitors," said Andrew
Brooke, Bark Busters' CEO.
"Our national call center and
Web site receive more than
8,000 inquiries every month
from frustrated dog owners.
Our. franchise owners go
through extensive training in
order to achieve something
special every time they visit a
home-helping dogs become
a more obedient and enjoy-
able part of a family. It's a sat-
isfying career and offers a
very flexible lifestyle."

the top-ranked franchises in

MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

Most people consider a pet
a member of the family. So
when a pet dies, the loss of his
or her companionship and
unconditional love can be a
devastating experience, and
have a dramatic impact on
surviving family members,
including other pets.
Grieving is an important
process when a pet passes.
Not everyone experiences the
classic stages of grief -
denial, anger, guilt, withdraw-
al and acceptance the
same way. But understanding
the process can help a person
cope with the situation. Here
are a few suggestions for cop-
ing with the loss of a family
pet:
Acknowledge your grief,
and allow yourself permis-


sion to express it.
Reach out to others who
offer a sympathetic ear.
Record your feelings,
such as writing them down in
a journal or as a poem.
Contact a local humane
society or your veterinarian
to find out if it offers a pet loss
support group or can refer
you to one. Also, check out
pet loss coping information
and support groups online.
Prepare a memorial for
your pet.
If a child also experi-
ences the loss, expressing
your grief may reassure the
child and signal that sadness
is natural. Attempting to pro-
tect your child by saying the
pet ran away could cause
more harm than good, partic-
ularly if the child later learns
the truth and feels betrayed.


Coping with the loss of a
pet can be hard for a senior
citizen. Interaction between
the senior and friends and
family can help him or her get
through the grieving process.
Surviving pets can react
in different ways. They may
whimper, refuse to eat or
drink, and experience lethar-
gy. A surviving pet should not
be ignored during the griev-
ing period. If anything, a sur-
viving pet should receive
extra loving attention and
care. Maintaining a normal
routine for the pet can also
help it get through the griev-
ing phase.

Passengers accompanied by two crew members row ashore for a lobster boil. It took about five
trips in two smaller boats like this one to deliver passengers, food, lobster cauldron, fire needs, Capt. Doug Lee scans the water and sky as he steers the schooner Heritage in Penobscot Bay,
wood and everything needed for the afternoon adventure. Maine.


IILLL1UrILJLIERI.COMIV


TRIP ,:
miracle fibers, T-shirts and
sweat shirts and fleece jackets
or rain gear according to the
weather. There is little room
to store a big wardrobe so it is -
best to bring clean underwear
but wear the same outer duds
more than once, layering for
warmth as needed. I brought
four books and managed to
read one. Instead I took about
800 photos, chatted with
other passengers and the
crew and reveled in the
changing scenery.
TheascTengers totaled 26
and ranged in age from 35 to
well into the 80s. The crew
totaled eight and ranged in
age from 20-something to the
captains who are old enough
to have a daughter who is
about 23. Named Rachel, that
daughter served as the chief
cook, baking fresh yeast and
* quick breads from scratch
everyday, turning out om-
elets, platters of Canadian ba-


con, gallons of chowder,
stews and soups, roast beef,
roast pork loins, blueberry
pancakes, brownies with and,
without nuts, cookies and
more.
Food for thought
All that food was turned
out from a wood stove in the
tiny galley. There was room
enough for all of us passen-
gers and the captains to sit
together at three odd-shaped
tables for breakfast and din-
ner but only because we got
along so well. Places were set
aiid then the food was'served"
in big bowls or on platters,
family-style. When the meal
was over, most people joined
in scraping plates and stack-
ing dishes. Some stayed on to
wash plates, dry and put
away. Others headed topside
to read their books or help
hoist the sails so we could be
underway and on to the next
island or past the next assort-
ment of lobster buoys. We


sailed under bridges, past a fort
(firing on it from the little
canon mounted on the gun-
wale) and rowed ashore for two
sightseeing ventures and one
glorious lobster boil on the
beach of a deserted island.
Every day we saw at least
one of the other schooners in
the 14-boat fleet of Maine
schooners. That added to the
ambiance. So did the weath-
er, which ranged from warm
and sunny to chilly and rainy.
We were in Maine in early
September. We got pretty
much what we expected and
the very best photo I took was
on the foggy morning of that
one chilly day a schooner
and its reflection nothing
else but gray mist. Watch for
that photo on the travel pages.
one of these days.
The three days that we
rowed ashore were all sunny
and the day of the lobster,
bake was so perfect that Capt.
Linda even went s\\inming
because she thought the


water was so warm. It was
about 65 degrees, which actu-
ally is quite warm for Maine
- but not for me.
All ashore!
Rowing in unison proved
to be a challenge. Despite
that, everyone who wanted to
made it to town to to the
beach when the opportunity
presented itself.
Best of all such outings was
the lobster boil on a deserted
island. Everything we
brought to the beach was
taken back to the ship after-
-wvafd, leaving the klaidn'in'its
natural state after we left. No
one would d ever know we had
boiled 90 pounds of lobsters
in a big metal cauldron above
a wood fire made in a metal
firebox on the sand. Even the
wood for the fire was brought
from die ship. When done,
the lobsters were dumped out
onto a bed of seaweed and we
all went at. them. Despite a
herculean effort. 20 went un-


eaten and went into soup the
next day. There also were hot
dogs, hamburgers and corn
to go with the lobsters or to
replace the lobsters if some-
one didn't like shellfish or was
allergic.
That too was amazing.
Every meal had something for
everyone. If you were a vege-
tarian, had allergies, or just
didn't like nuts in your
brownies, Rachel and her gal-
ley helpers could still fill you
up with delicious meals and;
snacks. Every afternoon when
they served up fresh brownies
or c6okies on deck, some
were made with nuts and
some without. I like them
without.
Each morning there was a
coffee pot on deck before the
first passenger got there. I
think I was the lone tea
drinker in the morning so I
would go below and get hot
water and a tea bag. There
was a good selection of tea
and hot chocolate.


Most interesting to me was
the manner in which passen-
gers seemed to find kindred
spirits on board. Several of us
seemed always to be at the
same table for most meals
and then found each other
together on deck too. Our
paths may never cross again
but for six days, we were like
one happy family or perhaps
a group of friends on some-
one's extra large private yacht.
It was easy to see why so
many return again and again.
Our' adventure lasted for
six nights, but there also are.
four-day trips aboard the
Heritage and trips of varying
lengths from three to 10 days
aboard other boats in the
Maine Windjammer fleet.

"This benefit of seeing ... can come only if you pause a while,
extricate yourself from the maddening mob of quick impressions
ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet
image... the viewer must be willing to pause, to look again, to
meditate." Dorothea Lange, Photographer (1895-1965)

Sun Holdings gears up for housing market growth


Developer
to offer finished
lots to builders

ORLANDO, FLA. Despite
reports to the contrary,
Orlando-based Sun Holdings
believes the real estate market
is still strong and is doing
something to ensure that
every one has a chance to
realize the American dream of
home ownership.
With more than 150 years of
collective real estate experi-
ence, the staff at Sun Holdings
is poised to enter a new arena
- offering finished lots to both
small and large builders on
which new homes can be
constructed.
"We have devised a way of
opening up the market to
attract and accommodate the
small builder," said Bill
Singleton of Sun Holdings.
"Our goal is to give builders
the foundation to expand
their businesses while, at the


same time, provide entry level
housing for working families."
There is still a strong market
for housing even though
demand has lessened some-
what over the past year. Sun
Holdings has developed a
strategy that includes pur-
chasing acreage, developing
the subdivision lots, and
offering the finished lots to
builders. Finished lots will
have had all engineering,
infrastructure improvements
(roads, water, sewer, power,
cable, etc.), environmental
studies and permitting
completed. The builder need
only grade the lot to their
specifications, buy building
permits, close on the property
and build the home.
Consolidated Contractors
International (CCI) of Orlarndo
has been selected to develop
all of Sun Holdings' future
projects on more than 25,000
lots. Current property hold-
ings are located in the Orlan-
do area and in Polk County.

ing itself for an anticipated
2008 growth in the housing
market," said George
Kalivretenos of Sun Holdings.
"What we are experiencing
now is nothing more than a
market adjustment a return
to normalcy, if you will."
While Sun Holdings has
established a strong presence
in the domestic real estate
market, an international
market segment is growing
steadily International


investors in France, the UK
and Germany have strong
interest in establishing a
presence in the United States
- Florida in particular. The
strength of the euro has
fostered increased attention
on purchasing investment
properties that can be used as
vacation homes and/or rental
properties. Sun Holdings'
