Red tide hits area hard- again


The annoying algal outbreak
has been a less frequent visitor
this year than last, but when
it has appeared it has been
devastating to
sea life.
BY RITA JUHASZ
CORRESPONDENT


Red tide came back to the beach
with a vengeance Thursday.
From Englewood to Sarasota, peo-
ple were choking from red tide's invis-
ible curtain of discomfort and
destruction.
And thousands of dead fish washed
up on gulf beaches from Lido Key to
Manasota Key.
"It was terrible. There are more
dead fish here today than I've seen in
two months," said Milton Tow, who
lives on the north end of Manasota
Key.
Red tide apparently also claimed a
large sea turtle north of Blind Pass
Beach.
No sea creature is immune to the
fatal effects of red tide, and Thursday
afternoon's tide left the dead turtle
ignominiously perched on its back
with the surf crashing around it.
Untold numbers of fish littered the
sand.
Increasing winds made taking even
a short breath difficult, with coughing
almost instantaneous. Gray skies hov-
ered over the: deserted north end of
the beach on Manasota.Key, the waves
relentlessly nudging the large turtle's
corpse.
The turtle was more than 4 feet
long and 2 feet wide. It was surround-
ed by dead puffer fish, crabs and sea
snakes.
Mote Marine Laboratory in
Sarasota was apprised of the dead
marine mammal late in the after-
noon.
Vikki Socha, a biologist with Mote's
Stranding and Investigation Program,
said, "We will pick up the turtle
tomorrow, measure it and test it for
red tide samples."
Record time?
The Stranding and Investigation
Program has been around since the
early 1970s, and Socha noted there
have been an increasing number of
reports of dead sea creatures "whose
cells exhibit signs of red tide intoxica-
tion."
With red tide lingering in the gulf
during the past two months, Socha
said strandings have picked up since
Sept. 1.
This month, Mote has been

Red tide is believed to have caused the death of this sea turtle found on
Manasota Beach Thursday afternoon, north of Blind Pass Beach. Many dead
fish littered the beach on Manasota Key.


informed of 45 dead or sick turtles,
she said. That puts the total at 126 for
the year.
With three months left in 2006,
there's still plenty of time to match last
year's total of 174 stranded turtles.
Both years are well above 2004,
when only 52 dead or stranded sea
turtles were reported.
An outbreak of red tide began early
in 2005 and stuck around in the gulf
until late in the fall. This year, the gulf
was clear until mid-summer; when
the bloom first appeared in the south-
ern gulf and began making its way
north. In recent weeks, it has been
spotty along the coast.
The Sarasota County Red Tide
Hotline (346-0079) reported strong


respiratory ill effects on all of Sarasota
County beaches Thursday, with fish-
removal operations taking place on
Siesta and Lido beaches.
Hitting a door
People also were suffering.
"Today, I was on the beach in
Charlotte County and the wind was
blowing hard onto the shore, so it was
really bad," said Wilma Katz of the
Coastal Wildlife Club, which patrols
Manasota Key.
Manasota Key resident Audrey
Grant said, "It is absolutely the worst
that I've seen this summer. You open
the door and it's just like another door

VPD going to



12-hour shifts


The change from eight-hour shifts was approved
by a large margin, but some senior members of
the force don't like it.



BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
AND MARY APOSTOLU
STAFF WRITERS


Starting Oct. 16, the Venice
Police Department will begin
a one-year pilot program re-
quiring all uniformed police
officers, sergeants and lieu-
tenants in the patrol division
to work 12-hour shifts, in-
stead of the eight-hour shifts
they have had up to this
point.
The final authorization for
that change in policy was
granted by city council Tues-
day, when it approved letters
of understanding with the
two bargaining units repre-
sented by the Fraternal Order
of Police.
The department's admin-
istrative staff, detectives and
civilian employees will re-
main on the current schedule
of five eight-hour days per
week.
Earlier this month, the 12-
hours proposal was put to a
vote of the union member-
ship and passed by a substan-
tial majority: rounded off, it
was 66 percent in favor, 24
percent opposed and.21 per-
cent not voting.
"I take that as a resounding
approval by the union mem-
bership," said Police Chief
. Julie Williams. "I just hope
that those who have been


opposed to the change will
give it a fair shot for the next
year. They might be surprised
at how well it works for them."
Long time coming
The idea had floated
around for some time with-
out getting serious considera-
tion, until Williams became
chief.
"The group who had been
proposing the change," she
said, "made a well-reasoned
presentation to me and my
staff. We began: a dialogue
back and forth, involving
everyone who might be af-
fected, including the develop-
ment of options for imple-
mentation."
"I was surprised," said
Williams, "to find out that
most the other police agen-
cies in this area had already
switched to 12-hour shifts,
and were very enthusiastic
about the benefits. In fact, it
has actually become the
'industry standard' national-
ly, and is one of the working
conditions which more and
more of the younger appli-
cants prefer.
"We have had a number of
ery qualified applicants, just
in the short time I've been
here, who have said that our
current eight-hour shift pat-

Suncoast Cycle Classic benefits hard to quantify


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER


The number $250,000 has
been floated as an estimate of
the economic impact to the
Venice downtown area from
the fifth annual Suncoast
Cycle Classic Sept. 22, but
verifying it isn't easy.
Lissa Courts, program co-
ordinator for Sarasota Coun-
ty, said the revenue calcula-
tion was based on the num-
ber of people who came to
the race and stayed overnight
in the area.
'Kate Parker, sports manag-
er for the county convention
and visitors bureau, said the
formula estimates spending
of $136 per adult per day.
Calls to the sales depart-
ment of the Holiday and
Hampton inns indicate that a


wSI~



total of 75 rooms were used
by cyclists. That's a starting
point of $10,200 toward the
$250,000 estimate.
Downtown merchants
commented about a lack of
business duringthe races and
said a lot of the cyclists
brought their own food with
them and made a picnic after
the day's activities.
But it was at the request of
the Venice MainStreet mer-
chants that the event was
changed from May to Sep-
tember.
"Venice is a ghost town in
September," said Courts. "It is
an extremely slow time for
merchants and the bike race
brought tourism to the area."
"We have bent over back-
wards to be sensitive to their
needs."

Never on Sunday?
Asked if the race could be
held on a Sunday, Court said,
"This question was brought
up last year, and we deter-
mined that for this type of
race, a bike criterium, people
will not come on Sunday."
"Not so" said Ed Levins,
owner of Village Bikes in
Sarasota and one of the race
organizers and sponsors.
Levins said he intends to
contact every Venice Avenue
and Miami Avenue merchant
next week and ask for their
suggestions. Changing the
day from Saturday to Sunday
is a possibility.
Pam Johnson, citizen liai-
son officer for the city of
Venice, said if the merchants
want to change things about
the race in the future, they
should contact Venice Main-

OUR TOWN SECTION


Street.
Levins said that one part of
the event he would change
would be the arts and crafts
booths.
"We only had 14 vendors,"
he said. "Next year we will
look into hiring a professional
manager to bring in more
crafts people."
Momentum
Levins will find supporters
when he starts making in-
quiries.
Mike Meerman of James
Place Island Grill is optimistic
about the race in the future
and would like to help with
planning. He has some con-
cerns that need to be ad-
dressed, but said he ended up
doing well on race day after a
slow start.
Locals need to get involv-


ed, said Scott Pinkerton, a cy-
clist and past president of
Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce. The organizers
should have a kids race and a
locals-only race, BMX demos,
YMCA safety course and
other things to draw crowds.
"We are a bike-friendly
town, cycling tourism is huge
and the event properly de-
signed and marketed could
be a big addition to Main
Street," he said.
"A lot of people have said
that Venice is full of old peo-
ple who do not want anything
to be changed," said cyclist
James Mahoney of Venice.
"Quite the contrary, I have
found incredible momentum
of people committed to mak-
ing this town something real-
ly wonderful."

Situation at the wastewater treatment plant 'critical'


From the Oct. 8, 1981, Gondolier Sun


BY RAY PORTER
Mayor Frank Proctor Tues-
day termed the situation at
the Venice wastewater treat-
ment plant on, South Harbor
Drive Extension "critical" and
said the city council has been
forced into allotting funds for


necessary repairs at the be-
leaguered plant.
Repairs which will cost an
estimated $370,000 must be
undertaken immediately if
the city hopes to avoid legal
action by the state Depart-
ment of Environmental Regu-
lation (DER) after numerous


breakdowns at the plant
pushed plant standards be-
low state requirements.
The city has been waiting
for federal funding under the
201 program to become avail-
able before initiating correc-
tions at the plant. But three
weeks ago the situation at the
plant became unacceptable
and the DER rejected two


connection applications for
local developers.
"I don't know what has
brought us to this position,
but I expect we'll get the an-
swer on Thursday (today),"
said the mayor.
The council has called a
special.meeting at 1:30 today
to approve the required
emergency funding.


Did you feel the cool?
A couple of cold fronts have
pushed their way down the
Florida peninsula since au-
tumn officially began last Sat-
urday. The fronts dried out our
humid air and dropped teni-
peratures just enough to make
a screened porch a pleasant
place to relax.
Wonderful.
The only negative is that
this time of year, clouds left
over from those fronts some-
times organize into tropical
systems. I
As October begins, we
become less focused on
Africa's low pressure burps
and more focused on linger-
ing clouds near our coasts.

When a new home is built

Bill Green: satisfying our thirst for water


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER

For the past 30 years, Bill
Green has dedicated his life to
the production of high-quali-
ty drinking water. The last 16
years have been spent at
Venice's reverse osmosis
plant, where he has been
superintendent for about 13
years.
"Reverse osmosis is one of
the most efficient and cost-
effective advanced treat-
ments of water," said Green.
"In fact, our product is so
pure that some regular
groundwater is added so it
will have some mineral con-
tent.
"If we didn't do that, the
water would actually corrode
the pipes more quickly and
present a real hazard to the
public."
"In 2001," he said, "our
facility was named the 'Plant
of the Year' by the Southeast
Desalting Association. That is
a very prestigious award sig-
nifying recognition from our
peers in the industry that we
are producing some of the
best drinking water available
anywhere."
"That fact is reinforced
every year," he said, "by the
Water Consumer Confidence
Report, which goes out to cit-
izens with the city newsletter.
We very seldom receive com-
plaints about our water."
"The most recent sign of
consumer confidence and
satisfaction," he added, "is
the decision to bottle .our
water and sell it to a limited
market.
For the past few years, we
have provided drinking water
to people struck by the hurri-
canes, as well as to various
special meetings and events
around the area.
People kept telling us that,
if we would bottle it they
would buy it, so now they will
have that chance. ,, ,


Out of the ground
"Venice draws its water,"
said Green, "from 14 produc-
tion wells located in the area
of the recreational facilities
east of Pinebrook Road and
north of Ridgewood, as well
as along the Intracoastal
Waterway. We also have 20
monitoring wells at different
depths in that area which are
used to check on how the
production wells are affecting
the aquifer and other envi-
ronmental elements."
"The raw water is piped to
our plant on Warfield Avenue
for the RO treatment," he
said, "then the finished prod-
uct is piped out either to the
customers or to one of our
three storage tanks.-All this
movement of water is con-
trolled by pumps activated
electronically from our work
center here. Most of the
maintenance and repair work
on all that equipment is done
by our own utilities mechan-
ics.
"We also work very closely
with Dave Adinolfi's distribu-
tion crew," he added.
"Whenever water service is
interrupted and a line has to
be repaired or replaced by
distribution, our production
specialists have to follow up
by testing the water until it's
safe to drink again. We do the
same kind of testing every
three months on over 100
dead-end water lines around
the city which have to be
flushed to assure safety"
Off to Georgia
After 16 years with the city
of Venice, the water produc-
tion superintendent has
decided to retire and move
north to a home in Flowery
Branch, Ga., but he already
has a tentative job offer from
the nearby city of Gainesville.
'After working for so many
years," said Green, "I .don't
think I could be .happy just
sitting around. Water plant

operators are in big demand
almost everywhere, and since
I have licenses in both Florida
and Georgia, I will want to
stay in the business at least
awhile longer.
"For me," he said, "the
hardest part about leaving the
city is the thought of leaving
all my fellow employees.
Working with them has been
the most enjoyable part of the
job.
"But I am looking forward
relocating to northern Geor-
gia," he said. "I will admit,
though, that I have a lot to
learn .about living in the
foothills. I was up there visit-
ing my property recently, and
made the mistake of wearing
flip-flops while walking
around in the damp moun-


tain grass. I slipped and fell,
and broke my leg in five
places. My four-day visit
turned into a six-week stay
before I could travel and
come back home.
'Another thing I'll have to
get used to," he added, "is
being surrounded by Atlanta
Falcons fans our home is in
the town where the Falcons
have their training camp.
Since I plan to remain a die-
hard fan of the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers, I expect I will get
some static about that from
the locals."

Reorganization
According to the budget
that was approved last week
by city council, Green's posi-
tion of water plant superin-


tendent will not be filled.
Instead, the decision has
been made to reorganize the
utilities department by
putting both water and
wastewater (now called
reclaimed water) under one
supervisor, who would have
to be licensed by the state of
Florida in both disciplines.
"The restructuring will
enable better coordination
within utilities," said City
Manager Marty Black, "by
consolidating and integrating
the staff and the operations of
both divisions."
A reporter visiting the city
manager's office last week
noticed an old glass soft-
drink bottle with the label
"Marty's Quality Beverages."
"Bill Green gave that to


me," said Black. "He has quite
a collection of old bottles -
you ought to ask him about
that."
Green confirmed he has
been collecting old drink bot-
tles since his teen years, but
has been a "serious" collector
for only about 20 years.
"My collection is now well
over 200," said Green. "Most
of them are from the 1920s,
some with very odd shapes
and many from bottlers who
cast the brand name right
into the glass instead of paint-
ing it on like they did in later
years."
-When he moves to Flowery
Branch in November, you can
bet he will be especially care-
ful wrapping each of his bot-
tle treasures.

County backs off school site


The agreement resolves a school board challenge
to a BOCC plan to limit where schools can be
built.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Somewhat grudgingly the
Sarasota Board of County
Commissioners agreed Wed-
nesday to back off plans that
would have limited where
middle and high schools can
be built.
By a split vote of 3-2, the
BOCC agreed to amended
language in its Evaluation
and Appraisal Report, part of
a larger comprehensive plan-
ning document, granting the
school board authority to site
schools where it deems nec-
essary. Property purchases
still require prior' BOCC ap-
proval.
The draft EAR language
would have effectively kept
Sarasota County School
Board from building middle
and high schools in certain
development zones.
"We were objecting to the
county constraining our abili-
ty to site schools in the north-
east part of the county while
they have been approving
developments out that way,"
said Ken Marsh, director of
long-range planning for the
school district.
"BOCC said elementary
schools were appropriate for
a 'village' plan, but left out
middle and high schools,"
Marsh said.
History
In December the school
board sent a letter to the
BOCC objecting to the village
development plan language.
On April 26, the BOCC
adopted modified language it
believed was a compromise
and sent the document to the


Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs for approval.
It still didn't pass school
board muster.
The Sarasota County
School Board formally chal-
lenged the plan in July, result-
ing in a referral to an adminis-
trative law judge.
The administrative hear-
ing would have taken place
this week, Marsh said, but
both parties instructed their
staffs to settle the disagree-
ment.
The school board signed
off at a Sept. 19 meeting on
the new agreement that elim-
inates the language in ques-
tion.
BOCC's 3-2 vote on Tues-
day to sign off on the agree-
ment was followed by anoth-
er vote on Wednesday to
move the amended EAR ordi-
nance forward to DCA where
it will again be reviewed and
await another 21-day com-
ment period.
Shannon Staub, Paul Mer-
cier and David Mills voted in
favor; Nora Patterson and Jon
Thaxton voted against the
settlement.
Venice-area resident Staub
was the swing vote. She origi-
nally voted for language to
limit school siting because of
a concern that'certain school
sites can actually cause urban
sprawl.
"We don't want that,"
Staub said. "Schools are en-
couraged to site in the urban
service area, which is the 1-75
(corridor)'for the most part,"
she said.
Relieved
Staub said she.changed her
mind and voted in favor of

the settlement agreement for
two reasons: one, because
new interlocal agreement
language passed in the last
few years already requires
prior BOCC approval on
where to place new schools,
and two, because she wants
to move the comprehensive
plan forward.
"We have so many oppor-
tunities to approve or disap-
prove a school site. Wherever
they go, they have to come to
us for approval," said Staub,
noting the interlocal agree-
ment requires three months
advance notice to BOCC
before the school district can
purchase property for a new
school site.
The school district also
agreed to look 20 years into
the future and identify future
school sites so they don't end
up having the same discus-
sion again.
"I felt if we settled, they
could get on with that. This is
holding up our Evaluation
and Appraisal Report. It's just
unproductive."
"We are relieved and grati-
fied that the county and
school board reached agree-
ment," Marsh said.
"The agreement puts sig-
nificant onus on us to work
collaboratively with the
county and all municipal
planning departments
within the school year to do
the homework necessary to
determine future school
sites," he said.

Seventy-acre school site 'surplused'


The site on Palmer Ranch Parkway is not needed
for a school, say school officials, freeing the
Sarasota County School District to sell or trade


the property.

BY GREG GILES
STAFFWRITER

Officials won't be putting
up any "For Sale" signs in the
near future, but Sarasota
County School Board did
make a procedural move
recently that allows the dis-
trict to leverage 70-acres off
Palmer Ranch Parkway in
Sarasota.
The potential school site is
partly wetlands, and includes
a lake.
The Sarasota County
School District is saying it
doesn't need the property for
a school in the area, now or in
the future.
The school board officially
surplused the property on
Sept. 5, in effect freeing the
district to sell or trade the
property.
Twenty years ago Palmer
Ranch Holdings Ltd. was
required to set aside land to
offset impacts on the com-
munity for developing the
property. The developer
agreed to set aside a 70-acre
parcel for a future elementary
school site as a condition of
"Development of Regional
Impact" approval.
In 1999 the original parcel
was traded for the Palmer
Ranch Parkway parcel. It was

appraised for $550,000.
The value today?
"We're not sure," said Ken
Marsh, director of long-range
planning for the district. "We
haven't had it appraised yet,
but I would expect it to have
increased substantially."
"It's a procedural move so
if the opportunity arises, we
don't have to wait for school
board action to be listened to
seriously" in future land pur-
chase negotiations, Marsh
said.
Under study
That won't affect a current
disagreement between the
developer and school board
over impact fee credits for the
property, Marsh said.
The site donation require-
ment preceded the educa-
tional impact fee ordinance. t
The ordinance, adopted in
2004, requires an impact fee
for residential building per-
mits of $2,032 per single fam-
ily unit and $474 per multi-
family unit.
Palmer Ranch representa-
tives began requesting credits
informally beginning in 2004
for the full value of the 70-
acre site.
Board special counsel
Robert Nabors, whose firm
developed the original


impact fee ordinance, offered
Palmer Ranch a reimburse-
ment of $550,000 as a com-
promise on October 19, 2004.
Palmer Ranch did not
respond, except to sue the
county a few months later
over the way the district com-
putes impact fee credits.
Earlier this year the school
district recommended a cred-
it of only $180,465.
Sarasota Board of County
Commissioners administra-
tors are still studying the pro-
posal.
Earlier this year the board
formally asked the county
commission to amend the
impact fee ordinance to grant
credits to subsequent build-
ers, as well as original devel-
opers.
"Since credits are charges
against individual building
permits, the present system
does not clearly address
either past contributions by
developers or provide a
mechanism for resolving
credit claims by master devel-
opers that have sold off prop-
erty to others," explained
school attorneyAlan Roddy in
a letter to the school board.
The Palmer Ranch Park-
way property is the only sur-
plused parcel in the district's
land holdings portfolio. The
school, district has five other
parcels in North Port slated
for future schools.

School employees earn checks for saving money


BY RACHEL BROWN HACKNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Dana Callies laughed as he
talked about his familiarity
with students skipping
school.
"I was quite a master in my
day," he told the Pelican Press
in an interview.
The recollection of his own
experiences, coupled with
three years of dealing with
attendance issues at Sarasota
High School, gave him an
idea that recently won him
$100 from the Sarasota Coun-
ty School Board.
Callies was one of 11
school district employees rec-
ognized in a board meeting
for submitting suggestions
that will save the district
money.
Callies' idea was to have a
flag appear in a school's
attendance tracking software
if a student reached a certain
number of absences, Sally
Otto, retention specialist in
human resources, told the
board.'
"Dana felt this would allow
the attendance worker to
instigate an earlier investiga-,
tion as to why the student was
missing school and make
another attempt on the
school's part to decrease the.
number of unexcused ab-
sences," Otto said.
That attendance worker,
Callies told the Pelican, would
begin contacting the stu-
dent's parents, teachers and
other appropriate persons
"that there's a problem hap-
pening." .
Now in his second year
handling in-school suspen-
sion at Phoenix Academy,
Callies said he had forgotten
about submitting his idea
until he was notified it had
been recognized by the selec-
tion committee for the dis-
trict's Employee Suggestion
Program.


Bright idea
Glenn Compton, a Venice
iHigh School sciencerteaher,
,won $100 for his ideaoe p^st


stickers "on every light switch
in every school and every
department," Otto told the
board.
Acknowledging the idea
was not a new one Presi-
dent Jimmy Carter touted a
similar plan as an energy-sav-
ing initiative in the 1970s -
Compton told the Pelican the
measure "is a good way to
teach students the impor-.
tance of energy conserva-
tion."
Compton said he had been
trying to get that message
across to the students not
only in his classes but in the
school's Environmental Club,
for which he is the teacher
sponsor.
"It'll be kind of fun," he
added, to see the stickers
going up on walls.
Mari Usher, the local area
network/tech support person
works for the Sarasota County
School Board complex in the
Landings, where the district's
administrative offices are
located, won $100 for her
time saving suggestion. By
installing audio-visual equip-
ment in the room adjacent to
the school board chambers,
the VCR, a DVD player, a lap-
top computer or a TV doesn't
have to be moved into that
room each time that kind of
equipment was needed.
In an interview, Usher
pointed out that the room is
used regularly for meetings
and conferences. Since the
equipment had been in-
stalled, she said, "I haven't,
had to go over there as
much," giving her more time
for other work.
Making a difference
The Employee Suggestion
Program began in April 2005,
Otto told the Pelican. Former
Associate Superintendent
Bob Earley spearheaded the
effort, she said. Now, the pro-
ject has become her "baby."
Otto told the board that
about 200 suggestions for
cost-saving measures had
o in from 34 .ools aad&s
" apartments. m ,.'


According to the program
guidelines, each'suggestion is
referred to the appropriate
department for review. Those
ideas found worthwhile then
are forwarded to a three-per-
son committee, which picks
the winners.
The program calls for the
employees whose ideas are
adopted to receive 10.percent
of the gross savings of the
measures, up to $2,000 per
person, she said.
Otto hopes to honor peo-
ple quarterly for their partici-
pation in the effort. Regarding
the recognition by the school
board, she said, "This was the
first time we had a large group
all at once."
Otto has developed a mar-
keting concept for the pro-
gram based on the motto,
"Think it. Research it. Submit
it." She's hoping employees'
enthusiasm for the program
will grow readily. The goal,
after all, she said, is to make
the district's operations more
cost-effective.
Compton summed up his
view of the program: "It's nice
to see that one person can
make a suggestion that can
make a difference."
The other district employ-
ees recognized by the board
were: Gerry Colangelo of
Materials Management; Jeffri
Durrance, Sarasota Middle
School; Michael Harvey,
Riverview High School; Jonny
Howell, Sarasota High School;
Desiree Schell, McIntosh
Middle School; Diane Van-
derlaan, Heron Creek Middle
School; Patricia Bailey, Bay
., Haven Elementary School;
and Anita Barnes, Financial
Services.
All received $100 except
Bailey and Barnes. Those two
women won $360 each for
their suggestion, submitted,
separately, that the district
should buy its security system
visitor badges in bulk, thereby
saving the district $7,200,
Otto said.

Paul Swinford, left, a South Venice resident who lives in an unincorporated area where
Sarasota County does not provide central water service, was the first to buy a case of city
of Venice bottled water. Accepting payment are city utilities employees Dennis Rodriguez
and Chris Sharek. The first case of water was sold Sept. 28, two days after Venice City
Council approved the sale of bottled city water. Water may be purchased in the cashier's
office at Venice City Hall, 401 W. Venice Ave., for $12 per case of 24.

City imposes hiring freeze
The city of Venice an-
nounced Tuesday that effec-
tive immediately there will be
a. freeze on city hiring. The
only exceptions will be utili-
ties, safety or mission-critical
positions.
The city will leave 12-15
positions that are currently
unfilled vacant until at least
January.
"We have concerns over
our ability to meet budgeted
tax revenues," said Venice
City Manager Marty Black.
"There are definitive signs our
local economy is in a down-
turn, this is a preventative
measure. As conditions im-
prove, we will move on a
more steady pace."
"One of the reasons we
looked at this initially is that
in looking at local larger area


employers, they've had to lay
off employees," Black said.
"We would rather not fill posi-
tions now then have to lay
off."
Gas prices and other un-
derlying economic indicators
show that city revenues are
declining, which is what is
leading to the belt tightening.
Watering day changes
Venice City Council passed
a resolution at Tuesday's
changing the day some resi-
dents may water their lawns.
Properties with addresses
ending in odd numbers, or
letters 'A" through "M," may
be irrigated on Thursdays.
This is a change from Sunday.
Properties with addresses
ending in even numbers, or
letters "N" though "Z," maybe
irrigated Tuesdays.


Venice residents may wash
vehicles and water landscape
shrubs by hand any time.
Hoses must have shut-off
nozzles.
New lawns and landscap-
ing may be watered on any
day of the week during a 60-
day establishment period,
beginning the day of planting.
Those with reuse or re-
claimed irrigation water are
not limited to watering one
day a week, but are encour-
aged to conserve. All irriga-
tion must take place before 10
a.m. and after 4 p.m.
Fountain maintenance
The Centennial Park In-
teractive Fountain in Venice
will be closed for mainte-
nance on the second Tuesday
of every month. The next clo-
sure is scheduled for Oct. 10.

Mote Marine Laboratory red tide


continues


STAFF REPORT
The National Institute of
Environmental Health Sci-
ences has renewed funding
for ongoing studies that seek
to discover how humans are
affected by red tide toxins.
The $7.53 million grant is
awarded through the Uni-
versity of North Carolina
Wilmington and shared
among researchers at eight
organizations, including
Mote Marine Laboratory in
Sarasota.
The renewed funding
allows researchers to move
forward with the next round
of field studies, scheduled to
run through this weekend at
Siesta Key beach, where sci-


dentists will be testing study
participants to see how they
are affected by airborne red
tide toxins. Other Mote
researchers will be continu-
ing studies of how much toxin
is present in the air, and how
those toxins break down in
the environment.
The study will be able to
continue to build on five
years of results. For instance,
working with Dr. Terry Kane
at Sarasota Memorial Hos-'
pital, Barbara Kirkpatrick,
manager of Mote's En-
vironmental Health Program,
has found that coastal resi-
dents living within a mile of
the beach had higher rates of
emergency room admissions
for respiratory problems dur-


ing red tides than noncoastal
residents.
While the records showed
a correlation between admis-
sions and red tides, the link
still needs to be verified.
"We still need to find a
smoking gun, so to speak,"
Kirkpatrick said. "We need a
biomarker that shows red tide
exposure before we can know
for sure if the increased
admission rates are due to red
tide exposures. Only then can
we develop effective health
guidelines for people."
Noxious agents
Other studies will continue
to look at treatments and


therapies for those affected by
inhaling red tide toxins and
continue the development of
laboratory models that fur-
ther refine and describe what
happens to humans at the
molecular level when they are
exposed to red tide.
By measuring red tide cells
in the water, the toxin they
contain, the airborne toxin in
sea spray, the toxin transport-
ed ashore by wind and the
amount people inhale, the
team is rapidly increasing
understanding about one of
the most far-reaching human
exposures to a natural toxin.

tern (five consecutive days
each week) was the primary
factor that caused them to
look for employment else-
where they want the 12-
hours."
The change will also in-
crease the manpower per
shift from a maximum of 12
to 18.
"Obviously, that offers the
city more manpower for pa-
trol, protection and law en-
forcement on each shift," she
said. "Without hiring addi-'
tional personnel, we will
actually have more people on
the job.
'As far as I'm concerned,
however," said Williams, "the
most important benefit will
be. the boost in department
morale. This is clearly what a
majority of the employees
wanted this new working
condition will make them
happy, and that will improve
their performance and pro-
ductivity on the job."
Over rotated
City Manager Marty Black
.,.esthe chief's enthusiasm
,ew program. 'InT an
interview Tuesday, he talked
about the benefits to the citi-
zens, the department and the
affected employees.
"They will have more fami-
ly and personal time," Black
said, "and after making the
initial adjustment to the
change, greater flexibility with
their time off."
FOP President Rob Pal-
mieri expressed agreement
that most of the. affected
employees would appreciate
the more predictable sched-
uling of weekends off built
into the new program.
"Under the current sys-
tem," said Palmieri, "we
rotate days off every 28 days,
which means the officers get
an actual weekend (Saturday
and Sunday) off just once
every three months. But
under the new schedule, they
will usually get every other
weekend off. That should
make their long-range plan-
ning easier.
"In addition," he said, "we
will have a more consistent
allocation of manpower on
the various squads and shifts.


We have made sure that the
letters of understanding allow
for some flexibility in sched-
uling, and that we have the
ability to make any necessary
adjustments during the 12-
month test period."
Skepticism
Enthusiasm about the new
plan, though substantial, is
not unanimous. Several se-
nior officers, who wished to
remain anonymous, express-
ed skepticism regarding the
benefits, particularly to them
personally and to their family
time.
"Many of us," said one offi-
cer, "have had our lives set up
and organized around the
eight-hours a day/five-days a
week schedule for years now,
so I think this change will have
a very negative effect, not only
on ourfamilies, but possibly on
our physical health. I have
worked 12-hour shifts in
another agency before coming
to Venice, and I found it to be
very draining on my energy
and productivity."
"The younger officers and
applicants," said another,
"seem to be focused on how
much time off they can get.
What happened to loving
your job so much that you are
happy to come to work every
day? I think the eight-hour
scheduling allows better con-
tinuity in dealing with the
public and following up on
complaints and crime re-
ports."
"We have already seen
some early retirements
among senior officers in the-
past few months," according
to another, "and there are at
least three or four more of us
who are considering it be-
cause of this change."
"I know some employees
are not happy with the up-
coming change," Williams
said. "Some feel it will cut into
their family time or outside
activities.
"We are asking everyone to
give it a fair chance. Next
summer we will be looking at
the results, and everyone will
have chance to share their
experience. At the end of the
pilot program, we will give it a
thorough evaluation."

Grant also said a small sea
turtle was found dead
Wednesday near Englewood
Beach.
Red tide is a bloom of
microscopic algae called
Karenia brevis that typically
occurs during summer along


Florida's West Coast. Karenia
brevis algae in high concen-

ters and clams.
The mist from the algae

similarly affect humans.
Daniel Baden, William R.
Kenan Distinguished
Professor of Marine Sciences
at UNCW and program direc-
tor for the study, said under-
standing red tide at the mole-
cular level can help treat-
ment.
"With an understanding of
the molecular mechanisms of
toxin action, we can recom-


mend appropriate therapeu-
tics for intervention and pro-
vide some measure of effects
in humans," he said. "While it'
is not presently within our
power to prevent red tides, it
is certainly possible and
advisable to reduce, treat and
ultimately prevent inhalation
exposure to these noxious
agents."

OUR VIEW



Norris could be last creative superintendent


Why would anyone want to become
Sarasota County superintendent of
schools?
What outgoing Superintendent Gary
Norris failed to see when he was recruited
from Kansas was that the Sarasota system
was probably loaded against his success. Too
many people have the ability to block pro-
grams they dislike or don't understand.
That has contributed to the parade of
school superintendents we have had in the
last decade.
Tom Gaul arrived in 1996 and left in 1999.
David Bennett, from Minnesota, spent
just 13 months on the job. He left when he
faced funding problems and couldn't get a
tax referendum passed. He told the school
board it might have to give up its goal of a
world-class school system.
Wilma Hamilton, already working in the
Sarasota system, held the post from 2000 to
2003. The job, she said, was highly stressful, a


"24/7" assignment. Hamilton left for health
reasons.
Gene Witt filled in more than once as in-.
terim superintendent, but made it clear he
would quickly step down as soon as a re-
placement could be found.
Norris, a gentle, dedicated optimist with a
futuristic vision for the system, signed on in
2004. He said he no longer enjoys his job and
will leave in June.
Norris said he ran into "unimaginable
roadblocks" as he tried to implement his
NeXt Generation Learning Plan. It appears
opposition came from principals and the
teachers union. Both groups have substan-
tial power. We have been told the principals
felt that Norris made rapid changes without
listening to.them.
Despite some similarities, being Sarasota
County school superintendent isn't close to
being the CEO of a large corporation. In busi-
ness the top person's word is law. Do as you


are told or be fired. CEOs with vision can
build magnificent corporations.
A superintendent is a politician who must
slowly build consensus. Few people say,
"How high?" when a superintendent says,
"Jump."
Can another person of Norris' stature and
creative vision be found? Or will the school
board end up considering candidates who
are determined to please everybody?
Will our school system be designed to sat-
isfy parents, teachers, principals and the tax-
paying public and become mediocre as a
result?
Last year, when we talked to Norris about
his NeXt Generation plan we became excited
by his ideas. He wanted to see all students,
especially those who were not being identi-'
fied as scholars, get a meaningful education.
He arrived here from Kansas as a dedicat-
ed educator with important ideas and
dreams, but he apparently didn't sign on as a


warrior.
His innovations may have been scary for a
few of the principals and teachers just biding
their time until retirement.
A person can knock down only a limited
number of stone walls by running at them
head first. Norris was clearly bruised.
He also took hard hits from the members
of the public who opposed last winter's 1-
cent tax referendum for additional school
funding, as well as for some errors on his
part.
What Norris failed to see when he was re-
cruited was that the. Sarasota system may
have been already loaded against his suc-
cess. Too many people have the power to
throw up those roadblocks.
We believe unless things can be changed
we will either find it difficult to hire another
creative superintendent or the system will
chew up and spit out another half-dozen
superintendents in the decade ahead.


Ideas are out

BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER


You have read about how
tired I get hearing the same
old garbage from politicians,
especially the platforms being
pushed by candidates that are
carbon copies of their parties'.
Little innovative thought
seems to come forward at a
time when we are so looking
for a breath of fresh air.
In candidate interviews we
often ask, "How do you differ
from your party?" and the
answers show it's very mini-
mally.
If you are a fiscal conserva-
tive, that means you are pro-
life. I just never figured how
those two things, connect, any
more than why taxing the rich
and enforcing strict gun con-
trol always go together.
With this said, in the
course of our interviews there
were some different thoughts
- not necessarily ones we
agree with, but nonetheless
thought-provoking. Let me
give you some of those in just
two races.
One of the county com-
mission candidates felt that
we need to raise impact fees
to keep up with the cost of
growth. Another was specific
in wanting a public safety im-
pact fee.
A couple of them talked
about affordable housing and
suggested change. One idea
was to put caps on rental
housing assessments, making
them in essence homestead-
ed so that the landlord does
not get the burden of huge
escalations in taxes every
year.. This is a major reason
people want to turn apart-
ments to condos.
There were many con-
cerned with growth, but not a
lot of specific ideas, although
one mentioned varying
heights to break the monoto-
ny.
One wanted to stop the
rezoning of Major Economic
Centers. There has been a loss
of 1,000 acres designated for
business that got changed to
residential. It is rather obvi-


ous that there is a need for
business centers where the
people can work.
One person wanted an
expedited permitting process
in the county across the
board, which is one of the rea-
sons developers want to an-
-fletinto the cites. Time ,is
money and waiting a couple
of years costs them dearly. If
the county solved this prob-
lem it might solve another.
Fortunately or unfortu-
nately, depending on how
you look at it, the county
looks deeper at the impacts to
infrastructure. One of the
problems is the cities can
annex and then expect the
county to provide libraries,
roads and jails way beyond
their ability to provide them.
One candidate suggested
the commission slowly pull
back from grants in aid as
more and more agencies are
looking to the county for
handouts. This certainly
would not be popular but
may be the way to bring this
fast-growing expense area
under control.
The county could an-
nounce a year out that the
new policy is to reduce the
payout over time, so that no
agency was surprised. These
agencies do help solve many
of our social ills and if they
didn't do it, government
would have to, one way or an-
other.
In the Sarasota Hospital
board race there were a few
ideas. For instance, one felt
the need to get rid of the very
oldest building I think it is
tower three and consoli-
date the campus.
Another said the hospital
needs to get tougher on col-
lecting bills. More and more
Sarasota Memorial is giving
health care away. This year
the number will be more than
$90 million, up dramatically
over the last few years. As
there are more migrants and
indigents cared for, the cost
goes up and so does our mill-
age. This also relates to immi-
gration policy.
One person suggested the
hospital board have term lim-
its, as there are board mem-
bers who have been there for
a very long time, likely with
no new ideas or any fresh
contributions.
One candidate was upset
that the hospital spent 10s of
millions on a property on
Laurel Road when it owns

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


MainStreet wanted bike race downtown


Editor:
I understand some Venice merchants were upset that down-
town streets were blocked off for the Suncoast Cycling Classic
and that they lost business to temporary food concessionaires.
This event, however, was supported by the city and the mer-
chants association, and was planned with extensive communi-
ty input.
The Suncoast Cycling Classic and Street Festival is an event
;that has grown in popularity year after year. Begun in down-
town Sarasota in 2001 as the Suncoast Criterium, the one-day
event moved to downtown Venice in 2003.
By 2004, the event was so popular that it was expanded to
two days. This year the event was moved from May to Sep-
tember at the request of downtown merchants who were look-
ing for a boost in foot traffic during the off-season.
In addition to generating revenue for a host community by
filling hotel rooms and promoting business in area shops and
restaurants, the event also promotes an active, healthy lifestyle.
It is an opportunity to spark interest in a growing sport and
encourage citizens to get out, get active and have fun while
doing it.
Many hours of planning went into this year's event. As
always, Parks and Recreation works with its partners to evalu-
ate the potential impact of each event on the community. Our
staff members attend meetings with local business leaders,
elected officials, volunteers and the community at large, so all
parties can provide input and try to anticipate any potential
problems before an event.
No event is perfect, and we always evaluate the need for
changes and improvements. We look forward to working with
downtown merchants and exploring possible adjustments to
the event next year so the Suncoast Cycling Classic will contin-
ue to be successful for participants, business owners and
Sarasota County residents and visitors.

Clinton bears blame
for current strife

Editor:
Mr. Myszka contends that
Clinton caught all of the ter-
rorists. Thank goodness the
FBI, CIA, NSA, DIA and our
military are not politically ori-


ented.
For the most part, it was
the police and intelligence
organizations within Yemen,
Saudi Arabia, Sudan and
Kenya who actually captured
the terrorists and yet Myszka
gives credit to Clinton.
How does Mr. Myszka


know all the terrorists were
caught? Don't you wonder
how many really escaped and
are still a threat to us today?
An Internet Web page states'
that in 1996 Ambassador
Bushnell, appointed by Clin-
ton, asked the Clinton admin-
istration to strengthen the
security at our Kenyan em-
bassy, but that request was
ignored. It states that Marine
Gen. Zinni made a visit to the
embassy in early 1998 and
warned the Clinton adminis-
tration that it was "an easy
and tempting target." Many
died because the Clinton ad-
ministration ignored both
requests.
Clinton cut the intelligence
services by almost half of

many lives were lost on Sept.

Was it not Clinton and

Best advice is

Editor:
I recently read with great
interest a story in many news-
papers' business sections
about a report through the


Dow Jones newswires that a
well known "industry ethics
proposal is severely flawed
and needs to be withdrawn."'
The Financial Planning
Association told the Certified
Financial Planning Board it
should dismiss its proposal to
allow financial planners and
advisors to easily opt out of a
financial obligation to their
clients.
The report indicates that
CFP members want to put
their own interests ahead of
those who they advise. The
report said the group did not
seek public input.
More than 51,000 financial
planners, stockbrokers and
others use the CFP designa-
tion. How interesting!
I had been suspicious of
this group for more than 10
years through personal expe-
rience and direct communi-
cations. This organization is
essentially telling you -
secretly that its members
will advise and help you with-
out responsibility.
Dear readers, this is simply
a case of outrageous unethi-
cal conduct! Those of us who
had been financially hurt by
those using the CFP trade-
mark know that the group
essentially has loose guide-
lines. The Financial Planning
Association and Securities
and Exchange Commission
are in court with CFP. These
facts can be researched
through the Internet.
The whole point of this
article is to advise folks to be

Off the Record. I'm calling about the Venice Gondolier Sun's
South County Record. I think this is probably the most upset-
ting thing that I have seen forclosures, divorces, bankrupt-
cies. Is there not anything else that you can do to waste paper
and ink? People that are interested in finding out what their
neighbors are doing can go to the city hall, they can get on their
computers. They certainly don't need this in their home. And
no, I have never even had a parking ticket, but I'm terribly
upset to see that the paper has stooped to something like this.
Write something decent. Write something about what our
good kids are doing, but leave these people alone.

I would like to know also
why the tourists coming here

interested in the spring training

cancellations
Editor:
This is in response to the
recent letter from one of your
readers regarding the sum-
mer concerts given by Ve-
netian Harmony Chorus of
Sweet Adelines International.
We appreciate the reader's


interest in the chorus and are
very sorry she missed the
concerts. The release stated
that the concerts would be
held at noon on June 21, July
19 and Aug. 16, at the down-
town Gazebo.
The chorus performed in
June and was there in a tor-
rential lightning and thunder-
storm. in July. Due to unex-
pected circumstances, the
scheduled performance in
August was changed.
We were unable to let the
public know as there was not
sufficient time to notify the
newspaper.
I apologize to everyone
that made the trip that day
and hope they understand
that unforeseen things do
happen.


The chorus is planning a
special performance on
Saturday, Nov. 4, at the Venice
Church of the Nazarene and
invites the public to join our
audience. In addition, the
chorus will be offering a free
performance, open to the
public, on Monday, April 2, at
the United church of Christ
Naar Hall in Venice. This per-
formance is a dress rehearsal
for bur regional competition
held on April 14, in Daytona.

ing events, please call 480-

You could buy one bottle for
50 cents or, if you bought 12,
you would pay $6. Oops,
that's also 50 cents a bottle.
What a deal.

Flu clinics begin today


BY RYAN BOYD
STAFF WRITER


The fall season rolled in
last week, and another season
is set to follow.
The season of the flu.
According to .the Centers
for Disease Control Web site,
flu season begins in October
and can last until May.
In preparation for the
coming season, residents of
Sarasota County can stop by
various locations beginning
Oct. 1 and get flu shots, said
Susan Goffard, a registered
nurse with the Sarasota
County Health Department.
The cost of a shot is $20.
Roughly seven members of
the Sarasota County Flu and
Pneumonia Coalition -
NokomisWalk-In Clinic, Sara-
sota Health Care Services;
Sarasota Family Medical
Walk-In Clinic, Maxim Health
Care Services, Optima Health
Services, Visiting Nurse As-
sociation and A Familiar Face
Home Health have re-
ceived more than 20,000
doses for now, but the coali-
tion anticipates receiving
more, Goffard said.
There are three flu strains
that the CDC has detected as
the most prevalent circulating
around the world this year,
Goffard said.
The strains are A/New
Caledonia, A/Wisconsin, and


B/Malaysia, Goffard said.
"All three of these are in
this year's flu shot," Goffard
said.
Anyone who wants a flu
shot can get it in Sarasota
County beginning Sunday,
she said.
For more information, res-
idents in Sarasota County can
call the flu information line
for daily flu shot clinic loca-
tions or call the Sarasota
County Health Department's
flu information line at 861-
2800. People also can visit

Davis, Philip
On January 30, 1958, a sub-zero
cold day in Keflyk Iceland, Phil
made his entrance into the world
with his usual laid-back attitude.
Philip Davis, Jr., aka "Zippy" and
"Uncle Elvis", was welcomed into
the family by his parents, Philip
Davis, Sr., and Edwina Louise
Bowie, and his big Sis, Debbie Lou.
When his father remarried, he
gained 2 more older sisters, Darah
and Debbie Ann. As the years
passed, he welcomed his little
sisters, Mary, Susan, and Kathy into
the family.
Phil was raised in Merrimac, MA
and Hampstead, NH, prior to his
joining the Coast Guard at the age
of 17. He served his country in
California and then Governors
Island, New York. He thought often
of his military career, and was
proud to have served his country. A
few years after leaving the Coast
Guard, Phil had an urge to travel
South, and chose to make his home
in Venice, FL and then North Port.
In November of 1990, Phil took on a
second job at the local Golden
Corral as a part-time cook. At this
job, Phil met a waitress named
Janet. He couldn't help but be
captivated by her outgoing attitude
and her attractive appearance.
After never-ending cups of coffee
and countless talks, he knew he had
met the love of his life.... Janet. But
there was a hitch to this
relationship..... he was scared to
invite her out. It took Janet asking
HIM when he was going to ask her
out for a date. He replied, "When I
can afford to take you on a special
date." On March 1st, 1997, almost
seven years, Phil and Janet were
married. Janet and Phil were not
just a "married couple" but also
Best Friends. And lest we forget,
golfing buddies. Phil was a
dedicated Christian, a loving
husband to his wife Janet; a brother
who always had a shoulder to lean
on with words of encouragement, a
.special uncle to nephews and nieces
who would need and ask for his
guidance, a friend who always had a
smile to brighten your day. With
golf as his passion, he also enjoyed
bowling, his poker night out, and
under the guise of "Zippy", played
his guitar while jamming with his
buddies.
Phil was preceded in death by his
parents, Phil Sr. & "Lou"; son
"PJ" Davis; sister, Susan Hartzig;
maternal grandparents, Edwin &
Mary Bowie; paternal
grandparents, Willard & Doris
Davis: and stepmolher.Yronne Co.
He- is suTiitd- b} his fo'ing add
beautiful wife, Janet Davis; two
sons: Chad and Seth Davis of
Haverhill, MA; stepchildren; JR
and Renee Campbell; sisters and
brother-in-laws: Debbie Lou &
Cecil Ugas of Pascagoula, MS;
Mary & Tom Mobeck of Chaska,
MN; Kathy and Mike Garrett of
Derry, NH; Darah and Ken
Blanchard of Virginia Beach;
Debbie Ann Mills of Hereford, AZ;
brother, Bill Ryder of Virginia
Beach; mother-in-law, Phyllis
Weaver of North Port, FL; several
sister-in-laws & brother-in-laws;
several nieces and nephews who
thought their "Uncle Phil" was the
bomb; and too many loving friends
to count... You know who you are. A
Memorial Gathering will be held
from 1-3 PM, Sunday, October
-1, 2006 at Farley Funeral Home,
North Port Chapel. ProperAttire:
JEANS AND T-SHIRTS

Indians get the boot from Hurricanes


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High football
team continues to find new
ways to lose.
The Indiaris punting game
had been a bright spot so far
this season, but breakdowns
in that area Friday night
proved to be the difference in
a 20-7 loss to Manatee at
Powell-Davis Stadium.
Venice had one punt
blocked and the snap was
bobbled on another attempt.
The mistakes led to 10 first
half Hurricane points and the
Indians had to play catch up
all night long.
Venice fell to 0-5 overall
and 0-2 in Class 5A District
11. Manatee improved to 3-2
and 2-0.
"We're fighting hard,"
Venice coach Nick Coleman
said. "We played better than
the last two weeks. We got
some things established. We
were trying to make some
things happen, but we laid
the ball on the ground. The
blocked punt. It would have
been a different ballgame
going into halftime."
Venice got an interception
by Gerry Hunek on the sec-
ond play from scrimmage.
The Indian offense got four
yards in three plays and
Coleman sent out the punt-
ing unit. Jamal Sanders shot
through the middle for a
clean block of Robb Huhn's
kick. The Hurricanes recov-
ered at the Venice 9-yard line.
The Indian defense stiffened,
but Manatee drew first blood
on a 22-yard field goal by Phil
Chaltis.
The second punt team
boo-boo came in the second
quarter with. Manatee6'hld-
ing a 10-0 lead. Huhn was
standing at his own 4-yard
line. He took the snap but he
then bobbled the ball and
had to eat it.
It was first and goal
Manatee at the Indian 3-yard
line. Austin Jensen scored on
the first play from scrimmage.
Chaltis tacked on the conver-
sion, and it was 17 zip with
7:42 remaining before half-
time.
The Venice offense showed
life, coming back for a strike
before intermission.
Jimmy Laurie got it going
with an interception along
the Venice sideline at the 7-
yard line. Al Mitchell broke
free for a 16-yard run to take
the ball out to the 26.
Quarterback Kyle Callahan
then completed two passes in
a row. The first was a 12-
yarder to Chris Hayes. On the
next play, Callahan rolled out
right to avoid the rush. Sean
Howell worked himself free at
the Hurricane 25. He took the
pass and raced to the end
zone. Ben Shipps was perfect
on the extra point, and the
Indians had crept to within
17-7.
The second half was a
defensive struggle. Venice
needed a touchdown to get
back into it. Manatee gave up
ground begrudgingly.


In the third quarter, Venice
twice worked its way into
Manatee territory. The first
one died at the 46-yard line
after the Indians came up
four yards short on a fourth
down call. The second one,
sparked by a 23-yard run by
Paul Costanzo, died at the
Hurricane 43. Manatee
stuffed Costanzo on a third
and three call and Mitchell
lost two yards on the fourth
down call from the 41.
Manatee got a 29-yard field
goal from Chaltis midway
through the fourth quarter to
stretch the lead to 20-7.
A last-gasp Venice drive
late in the fourth quarter
ended when Laurie fumbled
the ball.
"He lost it on the second or
third effort trying to make
something happen,"
Coleman said. "Our defense
kept them out of there. We
made them settle for two field
goals."
It was the only lost fumble.
of the night forVenice.
Callahan was intercepted
once early in the second
quarter.
But it was the punting
woes that put the Indians
behind the 8 ball this time.

-Costanzo had his best
game of the season, rushing
for 65 yards on nine carries.
Mitchell ate up 43 yards on a
dozen attempts.
Manatee got a super effort
from workhorse back Shawn
Williams, who gained 146
yards on 27 carries. He helped
Manatee manage clock in the
second half.
The Hurricanes might
have been able to do some
more damage on the score-
board, but they were flagged
for infractions all night long.
They had 65 yards in penal-
ties compared to only 35 for
Venice.
Freshman quarterback
Brion Cames was off target for
most of the night, firing over
the heads of receivers. He fin-
ished completing just 7 of 17.
Callahan passed for more
yards 76 than he had
in three previous games com-
bined.
Linebacker Nate Sardinas
was very active on the
defense. Safety Trey Burton
got a workout running all over
the field against the fiery
Hurricanes offense.
* *
Although the Indians are 0-
2 in district play, they aren't
eliminated from post season
play.
There are a number of sce-
narios.
"We'll need some help,"
Coleman said.
First of all, Venice needs to
beat Port Charlotte (Oct. 13)
and Lakewood Ranch (Oct.
20) to finish 2-2.
Manatee is in first place at
2-0. The Hurricanes need to
lose to Charlotte (Oct. 13) and
Port Charlotte (Oct. 27).
Charlotte is in second at 1-
0. The Tarpons need to lose
two out of three against
Manatee (Oct. 13), Port

Unbeaten Mooney topples Frostproof


PHOTO PROVIDED
Clayton Hazeltine scores Cardinal Mooney's first touchdown of the night in the second quarter
of Friday's game against Frostproof.


SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN

Two unbeaten teams. A
district title on the line. State
rankings to boot. How could
it not be a whale of a game?
It was.
Cardinal Mooney High's
football showed its character
by posting a come-from-
behind 19-14 victory at
Frostproof Friday night.
The Cougars, ranked third
in Class 2B, improved to 6-0
overall and 1-0 in district play.
Frostproof fell to 5-1 and 0-1.
Mooney fell behind 14-0
but rallied for 19 straight
points to pull the game out.
Mooney got seven of those


back before halftime, as
Venice's Clayton Hazeltine
scored on a 3-yard TD run.
Hazeltine finished with 56
yards on 13 carries.
A light drizzle of rain began
to fall in the third quarter. The
Cougar defense came up with
a fumble recovery early in the
session. Hunter Owens
scored from nine yards out to
draw the visitors to within 14-.
13.
The rain began to fall very
heavily the rest of the way,
making the ball and footing
slippery.
Another fumble recovery
set up the winning touch-
down late in the third quarter.


It was Owens going in again,
this time from 13 yards out.
The Bulldogs staged a last
minute drive, which stalled
out deep in Cougar territory.
The Cougars took over on
downs to run the clock out
and move on in for the hunt
for the undefeated season.
Venetians Cody Cole and
Austin Peterson, both line-
man, started for the Cougars
and played key roles.
Frostproof running back
Carlton Thomas gained more
than 100 yards.
A much larger than usual
Cougar crowd traveled to
eastern Polk County to sup-
port the team.

Girls harriers keep on ticking


SBY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It keeps getting better and better for
theVenice High girls cross country team.
Running in the Tarpon Invitational
Saturday at the Charlotte Sports Park,
the Lady Indians had four girls finish
individually in the top 15.
That added up to a season best sec-
, ond-place finish in team points.
SHad the Lady Indians been at full
strength, first place would not be out of
the question.
SAnumber of Lady Indians ran person-
al bests.
Sophomore Sarah Britton continued
to impress with a third place finish.
'Running a major portion of the 3.1-mile
;i course by her lonesome, she was clocked
Sin 21 minutes, 31 seconds. A week before
t"at North Port, Britton ran a personal best
S22:13.
"I like this course," she said. "Last year,
I ran' low 24s. I like running by myself."
The story of the day for the Lady
Indians was sophomore Amberose
Courville, who was moved up from the
junior varsity when Erin McCullough
couldn't make the meet.

r-^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^1


Courville ran 13th in the field, clock-
ing in at 22:50. Her previous best was
24:50.
"I thought I'd be in the back," said a
surprised Courville.
Kim Pinkerton did not run a personal
best; but she had a cold. She still finished
a respectable 14th.
The Venice girls welcomed back
Chelsea Rose, who missed two meets
because of a sinus infection. Rose took
her first step back with a decent 15th
place showing. She ran a 23.
"It feels good to be back," said Rose, a
junior. "Next week I should be in the 22s
and the week after that in the 21s."
Jessica Konecnik is another VHS run-
ner who keeps improving. She ran 42nd
in a 25:50.
"Last week, I ran just over the 26
minute mark," she said.
Veronika Badurova gave it her best
but couldn't finish because of tightness
in her back.
The Venice boys did not make the
Tarpon Invitational.
This coming Saturday, the Venice
teams are at the Disney Meet.

Sharing


their


culture

About 84 students from
toddlers to, adults meet each
week at the new Chinese
Academy that serves students
from Sarasota to North Port.
Everyone who attends classes
learns the language and the
beautiful traditions of the
Chinese people.
Principal Jinbo Yin and
Assistant Principal Sophia
Fong invite anyone interested
in learning more about the
school to call 484-5904.
Class reunion
One of the busiest ladies in
town, Jean Pickhardt, recent-
11 attended a significant high
school class reunion. Jean and
about. 200 classmates gath-
ered in Arlington, Va., for din-
ner, a picnic and plenty of fun
and games. They talked about
their wonderful days at good
oldW-L High School.
Jean is chair of the Man-
atee Community College
fashion show coming up at
the Plantation Golf& Country
Club on Oct. 26. Tickets are
$40 and you can call 493-3044
for reservations. This popular
event usually sells out so be
sure to get your tickets early.
What a nice surprise
Cardinal Mooney and
Epiphany Cathedral School
alumni Dana Heyl and her
family recently traveled to
Washington, D.C., for their
vacation. Dana and Craig
wanted their daughter, Faith,
to see firsthand some of the
things she'd be learning about
in school thi; year.
One of their stops was the
White House. While following
the tour and listening to the
guide, all of a sudden Barney
and Mrs. Beasley came run-
ning over to the group for alit-
tie positive public relations.
Everyone was excited to
see the president's pets and
Dana and her daughter Faith
even had a chance to pet the
dogs who obviously enjoy vis-
itors coming to their home.
Pat on the back
While chatting with some
members of the life history
class at the Senior Friendship
Center, we were pleasantly
surprised when Brother
William Geenen, CSC joined
our group.
This nice man is a member
of the Brothers of the Holy
Cross. Once upon a time,
Brother Geenen taught at
Notre Dame University in In-
diana. He was also director of
Gilmore Academy in Gates
Mills, Ohio. Interestingly, Bro-
ther Geenen was close friends
with the Hawley family who
were our neighbors in Ver-
milion, Ohio.
One weekend in 1972 Bro-
ther Geenen was visiting in
Sarasota and realized the
senior citizens in the area
needed a place to feel wel-
come. They needed a place to
enrich their lives.
Brother Geenen started .a
campaign, raised some mon-
ey and founded the Senior
Friendship Centers. They are
now in five counties from
Arcadia to Naples.
This nice man has made a
huge difference for many
people in Florida. Bravo.

SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL


Some of the canceled stamps from Lu Dalton's collection.

October is National Stamp Collecting Month.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Do you remember penny
postcards?
Ardent stamp collectors
like George Athens do.
The past president of the
Venice Stamp Club and cur-
rent president of the First Day
Cover Society. of Florida,
Athens has been collecting
stamps and associated items
since 1933.
"He is Mr. Venice Stamp
Club," current club president
Jim Garard said. "He is the
right-hand man for every
club president."
The two stamp collectors
sat down recently to talk
about their longtime hobbies,
the Venice Stamp Club and
the American Philatelic Soci-
ety's Stamp Collecting Month.
Today, Oct. 1, is the first day of
the annual month-long cele-
bration. The theme of the
2006 event is Southern Flor-
ida Wetlands, the subject of a
sheet of stamps recently
issued by the United States
Postal Service.
"When I first started, you
could take a dollar and cover
lots of countries," he said. "I
still collect. Now I try to fill the
holes."
Athens, now 90, was refer-
ring to the days when there
were ads in the back of many
magazines inviting readers to
submit $1 for a package of
assorted stamps from several
countries. The advertising
companies hoped the buyers
of those assortments would
become collectors and pur-
chase more stamps in the
future.

Stamp preservation
The way those albums are
filled affects the value of the.
stamps, Athens said.
"Stamps should never be
hinged," he said, referring to a
method used to fasten
stamps in albums years ago.


"If a stamp was hinged and
shows even a tiny distur-
bance on the gum, it will be
worth 50 percent less."
Dealers and collector look
very closely at things like that
when purchasing collector
stamps. Today's collectors
.keep stamps separated in
stamp-sized archival sleeves,
which can be fastened on
album sheets. Nothing can
touch the stamp when it is
mounted in this manner.
"Putting them in mounts is
the accepted way because
they (dealers) can't if stamps
have been hinged without
checking each one," he said.
When it comes to used
(canceled) stamps, there is
another step in the process.
Local collector Lu Dalton
saves canceled stamps, en-
joying the challenge of find-
ing all the stamps in a given
series after they have gone
through the mail.
"There is a sheet of 40 out
now," Dalton said. "It is a
challenge to get all the
pieces."


She saves them in a box.
About twice a year she ills the
sink with water and tosses in
the stamps. After they soak a
while, she works to separate
them from the envelopes or
postcards or. packages on
which they were glued.
"Lots of times you have to
struggle," she said, "and then
you might rip the stamp." -
She places the stamps face
down on paper, towels until
they dry and then continues
the mounting and cataloging
process.
Album pages can be pur-
chased from stamp collection
suppliers, printed from the
Internet or, very rarely, hand-
drawn by the collector. The
pages are generally issued at
the end of the year, picturing
stamps issued the preceding
12 months with spaces for the
stamps to be mounted.
Specialized collections
First-day covers are a spe-
cial interest and fill many of
Athens' notebooks and al-
bums.
First-day covers usually
consist of custom-designed
or embellished envelopes


Venice Stamp Club President Jim Garard shows a page of
Bahamas stamps in one of his collector albums.


,that are postmarked on the
first day a new stamp is is-
sued. The embellishment co-
ordinates with the new
stamp's theme or design,
adding value to the stamp.
Several companies concen-
trate on issuing first day cov-
ers and sell albums to collec-
tors of their various series.
"First-day covers were
really big in the 1930s and
1940s, especially in Europe,"
he said.
Covers featuring the art-
work of Dorothy Knapp and
other artists are highly prized.
Athens said that her work
rarely comes on the market.
Garard specializes in Eng-
lish Commonwealth stamps.
Many of the stamps in his col-
lection have been purchased
on trips to Commonwealth,
countries, including Jamaica,
Barbados and the Cayman
Islands.
"There are so many differ-
ent aspects," he said. "There
are first day, countries and
themes. One club member
specializes in specimen
stamps. They are not sup-
posed to be sold."
Oct. 17, the Venice Stamp


Club will use a special cancel-
lation rubber stamp to create
a special item for collectors. It
will consist of an envelope
with club logo and a Disney
stamp that is hand-canceled
with a special rubber stamp
from the United States Postal
Service. It will sell for $1.
"We are allowed to have
the stamp for 30 days," Ath-
ens said. "We can only cancel
the stamps for the night of
Oct. 17."
The collectible could be
mailed but that is unlikely, for
a collector would want to
keep it clean.
Both Athens and Dalton
collect duck stamps, govern-
ment stamps issued to hunt-
ers. More than $500 million in
duck stamps have been sold
by the government since
1934, many to non-hunters.
They sell for $15. There also
are state-issued duck and
other types of hunting and
fishing stamps.

Often compared to an-
tique collecting, stamp col-

day covers featuring a silk-fabric design on one side of the
envelope.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell,
*M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist

Q. My hearing aid had to
go back to the
manufacturer for repair. Is
there anything I can do to
help prevent future
problems with my hearing
aid?
A. Reliability of hearing
instruments remains one of
the great challenges to the
industry. The manufacturers
primary goal is to find ways
to protect the instrument's
components from failure
such as receiver shock and
wax impaction. However,
the largest contributor to
instrument failure is
moisture. Electrical
corrosion is the leading
cause of microphone and
switches failure, and here in
Florida, the moisture
problem is. a concern year
round. Every person who
wears a hearing aid should
store their instruments
overnights in something
called a "dry aid kit." The
dry aid kit works to remove
moisture from the hearing
aid components and this can
considerably reduce the
amount of repairs the
instrument will need. It also
can add years to the overall
life of the hearing aid. If
you currently use a hearing
aid everyday, you should
look into the benefits a dry
aid kit can offer. Call the

WELL-BEING


Left out and left behind


BY MARY SAMOGE-WISMER
AND CATHY MCCLUNG
GUEST COLUMNISTS


Often, in the turmoil and
focus of the death, especially
traumatic, unexpected death,
family adult members and
those involved in the situa-
tion are not aware of the con-
flicts, stressors and feelings of
the children left behind. This
can be especially true if the
death was a homicide, sui-
cide, or other traumatic, un-
expected death. Children
who are part of the immedi-
ate family of the person who
died, and who have been
present and 'witnessed the
death, may have no place to
voice their feelings related to
the death. This can be espe-
cially difficult if adult family
members are experiencing
guilt or blame for the death.
Frequently, children who
are directly involved in the
interactions of the family
may have been present and
witnessed the actual event of
the death and yet have no
place to voice their feelings
or objections to their loss.
This becomes acutely trau-
matic if outside personnel'


become involved or if the
adult family members are
experiencing guilt or blame
for the death. Frequently, the
children are left to fend for
themselves while the neces-
sary actions are taken care of
by the adults or the other
individuals or agencies
involved. The children's reac-
tions may range from feeling'
that they do not belong or "do
not count" to placing blame
on themselves for the death
and feeling guilty. Blame and
guilt commonly occur.when
the child had previously had
an argument or a misunder-
standing with the deceased
and was not able to resolve
the issue before the death.
Children can also become
part of what is going on
through open communica-
tion. It is important to sit
down with the child and
explaining to them what will
be taking place over the next
few weeks.
The age of the child and
what they can comprehend
should help to determine
how to speak to them. Keep
explanations brief and sim-
ple. Use clear, simple lan-
guage which they can easily

understand. If you find that
you .must use words which
may be new to them, try to
explain them in a practical
way that the child can under-
stand. An example of this is
explaining death as it relates
to a flower or a tree. You
would want to explain that
every living thing dies and
that death is a natural part of
life. If children wish to partic-
ipate in the funeral, memorial
or services for the deceased,
help them to get involved by
asking them what they
would like to do. If children
do not wish to participate,
they should not be forced to
do so, but the service and
plans should still be ex-
plained and discussed with
the child.
Take your lead from the
child. They will let you know if
they are interested in partici-
pating or feel more comfort-
able in a less active role.
Children are usually very
resilient and can teach adults
how best to assist them dur-
ing this time if we remain
open to their thought and
feelings.
Adult family members and
professionals can offer much

to affirm the child's place
within the family and validate
their worth and self-esteem.
By allowing each child a voice
and an environment in which
to express their feelings, the
child gains an understanding
of their value and belonging.
Younger children who cannot
understand what has taken
place can still benefit from
time spent in discussing the
events of the death and their
feelings of sadness, fear or
other emotions.

Ironically,
carrying a baby after he
or she is born may pose
more of a problem for both
parents than it does for the
pregnant woman carrying her
unborn child. In both cases, parents
are carrying around a lot of extra
weight that 'can stress muscles and
the spine. One of the worst habits
parents get into is thrusting out a hip
that serves as a "human ledge" upon
which the baby can perch. In
recognition of this fact, most parents
resort to using slings and backpacks.
Slings positioned at the front of a
parent's body obviously stress the
back, whereas a backpack can be
positioned so that most of the weight
is distributed and borne by the hips.

P.S. Do not run or jog while
carrying a baby in a backpack-style
carrier. This exposes the infant to
possible damage of the spine.

"You suppose," said Bert,

sell any of it and has to try
new things?"
If we were to ask him, of
course, it would ruin specula-

favorite things to do around
here. Willoughby, despite his
advancing years, leaped out
of the van and went into the

"I believe you're right," Bert
said.
Coal black. We could see

years, writing columns is a challenge


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
COLUMNIST


Some time ago, Bob
Mudge, editor of the Gon-
dolier Sun, said "Virginia,
since writing a column is so
difficult for you, why don't.
you tell our readers how you
manage to write these col-
umns when you are almost
blind?" With great difficulty,
folks, great difficulty.
But this column is not only
about how I write it but why I
write it. So, let's go back a
longer period of time when
John, my younger son, know-
ing I was depressed with my
loss of vision and in pain,
said, "Mom, why don't you
write again?"
"Write, John?" I asked. "I
haven't written in 35 years." I
thought about it for a while
and one day as I was groping
my way down the hallway, I
was tapped on the shoulder
and a voice said, "Hi, Virginia,
I'm Melinda Mudge." I am
usually slow on the draw but
suddenly something clicked
and realized she was the wife
of Bob Mudge. When I told
her my story she suggested I
write a column and give it to
her. That was the beginning.
September 2004.
Now, once I saw one or two
in print, the need to feed the
ego was % tremendous. Maybe
we all need that once in a


while. Almost at the begin-
ning, Gretchen Dawson call-
ed and told me she enjoyed
the column. She and her hus-
band, Bob, have become trea-
sured family friends. Now this
is heady stuff for an old lady.
And recently, tlere was a let-
ter from Carol planning simi-
lar to ones I have received
from Venice and Big Rapids,
Mich., which fe that appetite
even more. Quote: "Please
convey to Virginia Deupree
that she makes my day with
her wonderful) articles and
sense of humor. She is in my
prayers. What a woman. Carol
Manning."
Your comments have
warmed the cockles of my
heart. My children appreciate
them and my helpers, Jeanne
Hamilton, Nancy Sembar and
Endrus Brown do, also as they
are an integral part of this
whole effort. I could do noth-
ing without them.
So how do write a col-
umn? Nowadays it is easier
than it was in the beginning.
Some subject pops up in my
head, I write it and rewrite it ...
in my head. Then when one of
my three underpaid helpers
come, I can't think of what I
had in my head of course, but
I dictate a new version and
then we work on it together.
Then the next helper comes
and we rewrite it again. Pretty
soon it is ready for Endrus to
get it into her computer for
both newspapers.
I find the flavor of my col-
umn is better iflit simmers for
a week. This o e has not only
simmered, b t it's been
stewed, fried and fed to the
dogs and they t rned up their
nose at it.
Thanks to my friend,
Jeanne, ie got the first one off
in'2004 and then I frantically


started searching for some-
one to type and e-mail the
column for me. At that time,
Helen Gerich was also help-
ing me. We called more than
20 places, looking for help,
including the library, Writers
Guild, Methodist Church and
here at Harbor Chase. It was a
desperate search. Finally, I hit
pay dirt. I found that the high
school had a community ser-
vice program. I reached Ann
Pinney, a teacher, and as a
result, her lovely daughter,
Tori, borrowed her mother's
car and laptop and came over
to help me write my columns.
She then gave them to her
mother, who had to find time


to e-mail them to one of my
extremely busy sons, who
sometimes had to corral my
wandering thoughts. Then,
too, they had to protect the
family name. They, in turn,
would sent it onto the
Gondolier. Sometimes the
process took so long that I
said I was ready to pull my
hair out, one strand at a time.
Unknown to me, Rich and
Ruth Santer who live in Big
Rapids, in the summer and
Venice in the winter, took
three months of columns
from the Gondolierwith them
back to the Pioneer in.April
2005. I didn't know that the
Pioneer was using them until


I got a call from a local reader.
When Tori graduated this
past May, Endrus fortunately
popped up on the scene and
volunteered to help write and
e-mail my columns and help
keep me in line. I know I am
driving her crazy, but she's
sticking it out and along with
Jeanne, Nancy and myself, we
are all in it together. I still keep
my children in the mix as they
know that this keeps me off
the streets at night.
I also have to thank dear
Josie, our very genial con-
cierge. On Sundays, she
brings in her copy of the
Gondolier and copies it for
the residents to read and for


my fies.
I hope you get as much
enjoyment out of reading
them as I have gotten out of
writing them. My columns
are like a lot of things in life,
some are poor, some are fair
to. middlin' and a few are
good.
Thank you, kind readers.


Virginia Deupree is 93,

a columnist for many years,

'The Monsters of Gr,


BY TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER
GUEST COLUMrilST

When it comes to books,
therds fiction and there's non-
fiction. One is the result of a
fertile mind. The other is the
reporting of facts. You know
how the true stuff came to be,
because the author tells you.
But did you ever wonder how
those made-up stories are
made up?
Sometimes, it's hard to tell
the difference between truth
and a lie. In "The Monsters of
Gramercy Park" by Danny
Leigh, the two are nearly
indistinguishable.
Author Lizbeth Greene is
tanking, as they say. While her
first novel, based on her own
abduction, was a hit, her lat-
ter novels have disappointed
almost everyone. Now
Lizbeth has writer's block and
she's feeling fragile. She's
plagued with accidents, she

What do you mean


I can't eat it?


I


COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER


I love food. Food remains
one of my main vices in life.
So, it always boggles my mind
when there is food that you
can't eat that is used for decor.
Cookies are probably my
favorite food in the whole
world. I love chocolate chip
cookies. I was excited to hear
that you can send a cookie
bouquet to someone as a
greeting.'
What a novel idea! Sending
cookies to someone, One of
my bosses actually got one
once. I looked at him and
said,' "Let's tear this thing
apart!"
He promptly cooled my
cookie need down and said,
"You can't eat .this. It's for
decor only."
What the heck was the
point of that? I haven't seen
any cookie designs in
Architectural Digest lately.
What do you do with the
cookie bouquet you can't eat
when you grow tired of look-
ing at it? Just throw it away?
Why throw it away when you
could eat it? Is it that much
harder to make a cookie bou-
quet that you can eat?,
.;.The concept of fqd~you
can't eatwill always be foreign
to me, and I don't think any-
one will ever. help me to
understand.
Wax fruit. Fake pastries.
Centerpieces. Baker's choco-
late (which I think is just plain
cruel).
Here's a look at the other
side: food that is in the shape


of something else that you're
not supposed to eat.
When my brother got mar-
ried, he had one of the largest
bridal parties since Lady Di
married Prince Charles.
People came from all over the
country to be in his wedding.
He's that kind of guy. Needless
to say, his rehearsal dinner
was a large undertaking that
my mother wanted to do
something different for. We
were all going to enjoy a 13-
course meal.
I had to admit that I was
excited at the prospect, con-
sidering if a restaurant doesn't
have a drive-through, I prob-
ably haven't eaten there.
The restaurant itself
looked like an Italian restau-
rant. Being half Italian, I felt
safe in the food selections
that were about to take place.
But, to my dismay; and to
the dismay of much of the
bridal party, the food was
nothing that we expected.
Course after course came
*and went, and we were all
unsure that it was actually
food. It tasted bland, and the
texture was like that of a card-
board box. In fact, I.am still
unsure to this day whether it
actually was cardboard.
One of the many undis-
cernible courses included
small chicken pieces stuck on
a stick Sounds pretty ordi-
nary, but it was the way it was
served that made the differ-
ence. The chicken sticks
stood upright on a platter.
They looked like military ban-
ners, flags of war.
About midway through the
meal, the servers brought out
,four centerpieces in the
shape of boats. Little dii I
know that they weren't cen-
terpieces at all. In actuality, it
was another course. Four
boats now sat on our tables.
Four boats we had absolutely
no idea how to eat. It isn't like
that is something you're

PARK from Last Green Sheet


Ardilla or "Squirrel," is fight-
ing to be released into the
main prison population.
When Lizbeth hears about
Wilson and his nickname, she
believes she was "meant" to
make him her next book sub-
ject. She secures permission
to interview Wilson, only to
find a shadow of a once-pow-
erful man. Wilson can barely
speak and seems frail, but
Lizbeth is intent on using him
for her next bestseller.
Meanwhile, Wilson is.
intent on using Lizbeth to get
out ofAd-Seg.
I hear a lot of people com-
plaining that their favorite
Authors of Creepiness don't
write fast enough. From here
on in, I'm sending them to
this book. "The Monsters of
Gramercy Park" is tight,
unsettling and eerie, and
you'll be slammed around in
the story until you're not sure
who's telling the truth. Author
Danny Leigh then adds tiny
little nuances that may or
may not have much to do
with what's going to happen,
which only piles on the omi-
nous feelings you get when
you read this excellent book.

taught as a child. I remember
being taught how to eat
spaghetti, hamburgers, steak
and even squid, but I can
safely say that I don't remem-
ber fishing boat being part of
my dining instruction.
The bridesmaids and I all
sat in awe. My sister-in-law
looked aghast. My grandpa
fidgeted uncomfortably in his
seat. I could see that he was
waiting for something identi-
fiable to eat to be brought out
during one of the courses.
The bridesmaid next to me
looked at me and asked,
"What are we supposed to do
with that?"
I don't even know which
part of a boat is safe or good
eating. Do you start with the
mast or the sails?What do you
do with the anchor? To top
things off, on each boat, there
was a little man, supposedly
the captain of his vessel. Was I
supposed to eat thelittle man,
too?
The entire bridal party sat
looking at the boats, waiting
for something to ,happen..
Everyone turned to my moth-
er seeking instruction. She
talked to the person next to
her for what seemed like an
eternity, not even contem-


-m a aim


plating the boat. Finally, my
mother started to eat the
boat. There were no tricky
moves involved. She just sort
of dove in.
I think I tasted part of the
prow. I didn't like it. It tasted
just as though I would imag-
ine a boat to taste.
All in all, I think I partici-
pated in only three of the 13
courses of this meal.
To date, it still remains the
strangest meal I have ever
had. Now I know that we live
in a world where you can't eat
cookies, but you can order a
side of boat. Regardless of
whether it exists, it doesn't
mean I understand it.

Pet insurance can help manage care costs


STAFF REPORT


,In this country, health insurance has become a routine way
of life. It is now often a standard part of an employment pack-
age and ultimately a necessity when it comes to managing the
ever-rising costs of health care and prescription drugs.
Relatively few people pay for their doctor visits or medication
out of pocket.
Despite having been around for decades, however, many
people are unaware that health insurance is also available for
pets, providing a way to offset expenses for routine care and
emergencies.
Pet health care costs have also risen considerably. Some sta-
tistics point to a rise of approximately 75 percent. Attribute it
to general inflation or the fact that pets are now considered
"family members" more than ever before, and that is a big
financial burden for the average family to handle. While annu-
al checkups can be budgeted, unexpected surgeries or other
medical emergencies may be too much for pet owners, leaving
them with the tough decision of euthanization as the only
recourse one most pet owners would want to avoid. This is
where pet insurance may prove invaluable.
Pet insurance can be very different from health insurance
for people. First off, it is considerably cheaper. It is also void of
complex administrative work and rules typical of the human
variety. In many cases, pet insurance involves a reimburse-
ment procedure and allows pet owners to choose the care and
providers they prefer.
Typically, pet insurance works very similar to auto insur-
ance. Health care is provided and the pet owner pays the vet-
erinarian. The bill is then submitted to the pet insurance comn-
pany for reimbursement. In addition, premiums are required

insurance can help safeguard a pet's health at minimal cost to
an owner.


that may cost anywhere from $10 to 70 per month dependent
on the pet insurance provider and plan. Usually, discounts are
offered if multiple pets are insured.
There are just a handful of pet insurance providers, so
researching their pros and cons should be relatively easy. The
top companies include Veterinary Pet Insurance, Pethealth
and the Hartville Group, When comparing, look for the follow-
ing:
* Find out the underwriter behind the policy and verify if it is
in good financial standing and will be able to pay any future
claims.
* Know what the coverage limits or excludes.
* Verify all costs, including deductibles, lifetime caps and
copayments.,
Before purchasing pet insurance, pet owners should pay a
visit to their Human Resources office at work Some compa-
nies offer pet insurance as an added employee benefit.
Some people discover that pet insurance is just not right for
them. In these instances, there are other options. Some veteri-
narians and animal hospitals offer wellness packages, which
are discounted prices on vaccinations and some routine
health care costs. Some also offer geriatric checkup packages.
There are also discount programs that will offer savings on vet-
erinary services provided their vendors, such as PetAssure or
Banfield, are used. In addition, if there is ever a time when a
pet owner simply cannot afford care, a local humane society
may offer financial assistance to pet owners in neediand pro-
vide care at no cost.
In the end, knowing about a particular animal breed and tak-
ing into consideration its age, inherent health risks and level of
activity can help a pet owner to decide whether pet insurance
is a cost-effective option for them.


October Pet of the Month


ST. FRANCIS ANIMAL RESCUE STAFF

Pet of the Month highlights a St.
Francis Animal Rescue feline that has
had a difficult time getting adopted. To

Kirlee is former SFAR kitten who was
found as a stray with her siblings in


November 2001. She was spayed before
being adopted by our organization and
then she was returned almost a year ago,
along with two other cats, by her owner,
who could no longer care for her due to
financial problems. The other two cats
were quickly adopted and Kirlee became
very depressed. She lost most of the hair'
on her tail and back side area. She has
never fully recovered Aom the-stress o

"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." s- Dorothea Lange, Photographer (1895-1965)


The Gulf Coast Chapter of the American Hibiscus
Society met recently in the meeting room of the
Venice Public Library. The Chapter includes mem-
bers from Venice north to Sarasota and south to
North Port, Englewood and Charlotte County. :,
It was a pleasant meeting that zipped along
and covered all the necessary ground in short order under the
crisp direction of president Wally Neff- like where the group
will hold next spring's well-attended Hibiscus Show, and how
to get to the location of the Oct. 8 cookout.
It looks now as though the Chapter will continue on at
Woodmere Park, the cost to rent theVenice Community Center
for the annual one-day show being more than the group is will-
ing to fork out. Printed directions were given so that everyone
can find the cook-out.
It was then time to get on with the main reason everyone
had come to the meeting: Randy Cox, a hybiscus grower, giv-
ing a demonstration on how to graft hybrids. In a word, fasci-
nating.
Cox prepared the root stock, making an angled downward
cut and part way through the stalk. He mostly deleafed the

piece of plant to be grafted and made a similar downward cut,
this time all the way through. His knife is a special knife that is
like a regular angled paring knife on one side and absolutely
flat on the other. He placed the two parts snugly together and
fastened them with a piece of rubber band. The joined pieces
were then put in small starter pots, where over period of time
the two would become as one.'
Cox estimates his success rate with this method of produc-
ing hybrid plants runs 85 percent to 95 percent. It's his favored
way of hybridizing his hibiscus stock. Cox prepared a dozen or
so which he contributed to the raffle that traditionally goes on
after each meeting.
Jim Courtwright, who is the treasurer of the group, conduct-
ed the successful plant raffle, a yummy coffee break was had,
and the meeting came to ani end. Good meeting. (PS. I won a
gorgeous plant in the raffle!)
The Gulf Coast Chapter of the American Hibiscus Society
meets at 2 p.m. on the second Sunday of every month (except
August) in the meeting room at the Venice Public Library, 300
Nokomis Ave., at Milan.
If you'd like more information, call 488-6106.

WHAT: The Gulf Coast Chapter of the American
Hibiscus Society
WHEN: 2 p.m., the second Sunday of every
month
WHERE: in the meeting room at the Venice
Public Library, 300 Nokomis Ave.
QUESTIONS: Call 488-6106.


Members gathered round the table and
watched the process of grafting very closely.


Each meeting a member does a "show and tell" number, testing mem-
bers on the official names of various plants. Here Duncan Othen holds
a "Bold Beauty" for possible member ID.

ennar Homes' Stoneybrook develop-
ment off River and Center roads was
planned to minimize the guesswork for
potential homeowners.
The firm went so far as to register the name
"Everything's Included Homes." Despite that,
there was one extra I discovered in one of the
models a decorative ceiling that was a
variation on a coffered ceiling. With or without
the extra decorative touch, the basic home
package was quite complete in itself, includ-
ing the latest GE stainless appliances, crown
molding and under-cabinet lighting in the
kitchen, solid surface counters in the bath-
rooms, Roman tubs in master bathrooms,
R-30 ceiling, paver driveways and walkways,
tile roofs and closets fitted out with such
extras as shoe storage and double-hung
covered shelf/rod systems.
The Dover FlexV model shown here features
tile flooring in the entire living area, including
living and dining room, baths and kitchen,
with carpeting in the two bedrooms,
den/study, laundry, foyer and additional
family room at the back of the house, beyond
the breakfast nook area.
The master suite features two closets, one a
walk-in style, plus closeted toilet, Roman tub
and separate walk-in shower.
Mirrors surrounded by decorative moldings
on two walls of the dining area visually expand
that space, which is handy to the kitchen and
an additional pantry area. There is an addi-
tional storage closet for linens in the second
bathroom. That bathroom also serves as a
guest bath for the main part of the house.
The 1,980-square-foot model home is on
Mesic HammockWay off Stoneybrook Boule-'
vard. If you enter Stoneybrook from Center
Road, Mesic Hammock is the last road on the

vard.
Prices for the Dover Flex and similar homes
in the immediate area are priced from the
mid-$300,000 range to the low $400,000 range,
including the lot. The Stoneybrook at Venice
Homeowner Association fee is $1,484 per year,
paid quarterly.
Lisa Van Dillen, Court Hoyle and Megan
George are the resident new home consultants
at the models, which are open daily from 9
a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6

Lennar Homes Breaks Sales Record


In the midst of a real estate
slowdown, Lennar Homes in
Sarasota/Manatee set a new
record for sales in August. Len-
nar sold 101 homes, beating the
Sarasota division's previous Au-
gust record, set in 1994, by 10
homes.

Why do homebuyers con-
tinue to flock to Lennar's 13
Sarasota and Manatee area
communities?
The company's success dur-
ing a "down market" is eas-
ily explained. "Lennar is a value
builder and, regardless of what
the market is doing, consumers
recognize the value they receive
with a Lennar home" said Gor-
don Greenfield, Area Marketing
Director for Lennar Sarasota.

According to Greenfield,
homebuyers want three things:
quality homes, in communities
with the amenities that meet
their lifestyles, and the best pos-
sible price. "When homebuyers


do their homework, they real-
ize what an outstanding value
Lennar offers."

Not only are Lennar homes
priced to the current market,
but the company's "Every-
thing's Included" program of-
fers a remarkable value.
Through extensive consum-
er research, Lennar has de-
termined which features are
most desired by home buyers.
Lennar then leverages its na-
tional buying power and puts
these features in all its homes
across the country.

Where other builders add
on extra charges for upgrad-
ed features, Lennar includes
these premium features as
standard, without any addi-
tional charges.
"People are stunned when
they tour one of our models
and realize that everything
they see is included. No


hidden costs, no surprises... So, why buy now?
just everything you'd want at a
price that gives other builders "People frequently make
a headache," said Greenfield. the mistake of rushing to buy
when the market is high and


hesitating when it is low. Given
the current cost of labor and
materials, new construction
home prices cannot go lower..


We are at the bottom," accord-
ing to Greenfield.

Greenfield added that as we
head back into "season" in Sara-
sota, home prices are likely to
increase. "Every year, we see an
increase in home sales from No-
vember through March," he said.
"Higher prices generally follow
an increase in demand. It's the
economics of real estate."

Lennar has been building
homes in the Sarasota and
Manatee area for more than
40 years. A public company,
Lennar's financial statements
are among the strongest of the
large, national builders.

As evidenced by the launch
of new communities at River
Strand in Heritage Harbour,
Lakeside Village in Bradenton
and Stoneywood Cove in Ven-
ice, Lennar continues to grow
in the Sarasota and Manatee
area.

Welcome to JIorton, welcome to ]iver Club


PROVIDED BY D'R*HORTON
More than 27 years ago,
D*R*Horton began with a
strong commitment to stay
ahead in design, to be a step
above in craftsmanship and to
stand alone in value. Since
then, they advertise that they
have become the nation's
number one builder, building
beautiful, quality homes
across the nation, including
homes in Port Charlotte's own
River Club.
"Nothing is more cherished
than those relaxing days spent
with friends and family right
in the comfort of your own
home," said Elizabeth Gal-
loway, marketing coordinator
for D*R*Horton. "River Club
features spacious floor plans,
distinctive architecture and


remarkable features, so your
home will always be a special
place for you and your
family."
The D*R*Horton team
claims they have a strong
reputation for building every
one of their homes with the
care and integrity they would
use if they were building it for
themselves. They use the best
possible materials along with
the most talented and experi-
enced craftsmen. More
importantly, D*R*Horton
backs every home they build
with a powerful warranty and
a strong commitment to
satisfaction. That's the reason
generations of Americans
have housed and nurtured
their families in D*R*Horton
homes, just like River Club.


In River Club, homebuyers
will find a neighborhood
where they can live at their
own pace, where each day
brings something new and
where they are afforded the
luxury of options, all with the
comfort of preconstruction
pricing.
D*R*Horton is building two
different series of models. In
the Lantern Key series, buyers
will be able to choose from
seven different floorplans.
With three to five bedrooms,
two to three and a half
bathrooms, and up to 3,054
square feet under air-condi-
tioning, homeowners can
have everything they have
been asking.for.
In addition, buyers can
explore the Beacon Pointe


model series. Here homebuy-
ers are offered an impressive
five-floorplan selection with
three to six bedrooms, two
and a half to four and a half
bathrooms and a generous
3,997 square feet under air-
conditioning.
These spacious single-
family homes include a
remarkable selection of
features. Live with thoughtful
touches such as, custom-
designed wood kitchen and
bathroom cabinets and the
luxury of a cultured marble
roman tub. In the master
bedroom, residents will love
the spacious walk-in closets,
and enjoy a complete
Whirlpool appliance package
in the kitchen.
Throughout this communi-


ty, D*R*Horton offers spectac-
ular amenities for everyone to
enjoy. Whether you're in the
mood to get a great workout
in the fitness center, soak in
the sun at the resort-style
heated pool, or play around
with the kids at the children's
playground. Everyone in your
family will always have
something to do at River Club.
Located just off of the Peace
River, River Club offers its
residents a cozy waterside
town feel. Enjoy dinner sitting
at a riverside cafe, or shop to
your heart's content. With the
up-and-coming area, buyers
will love watching and
experiencing new develop-
ments in the area.
"River Club will offer its


residents the ultimate combi-
nation of new, spacious
homes, modern features,
remarkable amenities found
in every D*R*Horton home,"
said Galloway.
"With these unbeatable pre-
construction prices, buyers
can select the home they want
at a price they love!"
To visit River Club sales
center, take 1-75 to exit 167,
Harborview Road and go west,
Turn right onto Oakview Drive
and continue approximately
100 yards. River Club is
located on the left.
For more information on
River Club, please call 941-
624-5947, or visit www.
