VRMC tops in county for heart patient services


HOW THEY RATED
According to Gannett
News Service, here's how
Sarasota County's hospitals
did in meeting a national car-
diac care standard from
admission through dis-
charge:
Heart attack Venice
Regional Medical Center, 98
percent; Sarasota Memorial
Hospital, 92 percent; Doctors
Hospital, 85 percent
Heart failure Venice
Regional Medical Center, 97
percent; Doctors Hospital, 84
percent; Sarasota Memorial

There's good news for
heart patients in the Venice
area.
According to a study re-
leased in September by USA
Today publisher Gannett
News Service, Venice Regio-
nal Medical Center ranks
highest among facilities in
Sarasota County when it
comes to the full range of ser-
vices to heart attack and
heart failure patients. (See
info box.)
The hospitals' scores rep-
resent the percentage of time,
during the one year period
from October 2004 through


September 2005, that
patients received the stan-
dard of care recommended
by a panel of national experts,
from the time of admission in
the emergency room to and
beyond the time of discharge.
According to a GNS press
release dated Sept. 27, med-
ical evidence indicates that
patients get the best results
from such standardized care,
which ranges from giving
heart attack patients aspirin
to performing heart catheter-
ization procedures.
VRMC received the high-
est rankings possible five'
stars out of five in the
study, which compared hos-
pitals, across the state and


nation in giving "recom-
mended care" to their heart
patients.
"The quality of healthcare
is very important to us," said
the hospital's Director of
Marketing and Public Re-
lations Kathy Turner, "and
that priority is reflected in
these ratings.
"We are veryhappy to have
achieved such high numbers,
but our emphasis here is to
continually improve wherev-
er possible."

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
LORENE SEKEY


Gang activity is on the rise
in Sarasota County to the
point where area gangs are
recruiting 8-year-olds even in
South County, say officials.,
That's one reason why
local law enforcement and
the Sarasota County Public
Schools are sponsoring a
series of forums to educate
parents, teachers and the
community on the signs to
watch for that identify gang
activity.
The first forum is Monday,
Oct. 16, at 6:30 pm at North
Port High. Next Monday
evening the forum will be
held at Venice High School at
6:30 pm. Forums are also
scheduled for Riverview
High, Booker High and
Sarasota High.
"It's designed to educate
parents, teachers and the
community on the signs to
watch for that identify gang
activity," said Sarasota Police
Officer K. Swatts.
Swatts and school resource
officers will be on hand to dis-
cuss types of gangs, who joins

and common graffiti, and
prevention ideas. Spanish and
Russian/Ukrainian translators
will be at the North Port event.
Sarasota County experi-
enced only two gang-related
murders in the last five years,
in 2001 and 2005, said Swatts,
but there is growing interest.
Last year more than 100 cases
of gang-related graffiti oc-
curred \within Sarasota city
limits.
"We have very young kids
wearing gang colors," she
said.

In our backyard
"It's definitely happening
in South County the gang
thing. Children see their older
siblings get involved and they
want to copy them. That's
how an 8-year-old gets
involved," Swatts said.
She cited reports from
North Port High School SROs
and videotapes reviewed by
police that are cause for con-
cern.
"People don't know how to
recognize gang activity," she
said. "They aren't educated
about what to look for.

kids are dressing is a fashion
thing, but it can be gang-
related. Same thing with cer-
tain types of drawings. But if
you had the training you
could (confront) your child
and say, 'I've been told this
could possibly be a sign of
gang activity.' "
"If you ignore it gangs will
start rising because we didn't
do anything about it," Swatts
said.
Forum speakers will
include gang specialists from
local law enforcement agen-
cies and SROs. Participants
will receive vital information
and have the opportunity to
ask questions of the experts.

Florida School Recogni-,
tion Program reward monies
have created more strife
'among school staff than jusi
about any other issue since
No Child Left Behind came
on tdie scene in 2001-- to the
point where some teachers
don't want it and principals
loathe the inevitable intra-
staff wars it spawns.
That wasn't the case this
year at Venice High, however.
"It ran very smoothly," said
teacher Leslie Bachtel, co-
chair of the VHS Committee
to Distribute Florida Recog-
nition Funds.
"This was handled in an
extremely professional man-
ner by everyone involved.
"Staff voted to share the
money across the board with
everyone who works at the
school because it takes every-
one to make a school run.
The custodians, cafeteria
workers, secretaries and oth-
ers free us up to do our job
because they are taking care
of everything else, allowing
us to focus on student
achievement. This is recogni-
tion of their effort as well,"
Bachtel said.
The School Advisory Com-
mittee agreed Wednesday to
accept the recommendation
to share reward monies am-
ong all staff everyone who
worked at the school last
year.
It didn't have to.
State law requires the
teachers and SAC to agree
over how to spend the funds.
The money $100 per full-
time student can be used
to reward teachers, shared
among all staff, hire new staff,
or purchase classroom mate-
rials.
If the parties don't reach
consensus on how to spend
the funds by Nov. 1, it defaults
to teachers in the form of a
bonus.
It's a system that invites
stonewalling. Worse, it has
created bad blood between
teachers and nonteaching
staff.


Lessons learned
Reward money was
blamed by Venice High SAC
members for the decline in
school performance last time
the school received the funds.
" Venice High dropped from
an "A" school to a "C" school
within two years after it
received $222,237 in 2002-03.
"We learned this the hard
way. People struggled with it.
There were some hurt feel-
ings. A lot of lessons were
learned. Now we're trying to
do everything as fairly as pos-
sible and make good use of
the money ... We're back up
to an A' now. We hope to
remain there," Bachtel said.

Healing
Venice High will share
$211,539 among its staff. It
works out to about $1,000 per
staff member before taxes.
Because the reward
monies are for last year's per-
formance, only staff
employed at the school last
year will split the money.
Money for those who worked
only half the year will be pro-
rated.
Those who moved on will
be tracked down and sent a
check. Employees new to the
school this year aren't eligible
to share in the bonus.
Two weeks ago teachers
took a straw poll for ideas on
how to spend the funds. A list
of 11 options was whittled
down to three.
Here's how teachers ulti-
mately voted: 112 wanted to
share the funds among all
staff; 33 wanted to prorate the
funds to all employees based
on pay; 22 voted to reward
teachers only.
SAC members wanted a
fourth option considered.
Last month they raised the
idea of using a portion of the
monies to hire a grant writer.
County administrators nixed
the idea, said Bachtel,
because the expenditure
wouldn't be spent directly on
students.

been on the campus ofVenice school year, Walker was
junior high school for eight assigned to the school on a

his new job and has managed tackle the increasing drug
to make himself as visible as problems at the school. Al-
possible. though it has not all been

After a series of discussions
between Chief Ray Waymire:
of the Venice Police
Department and Principal
Guy Bennett, it was thought
the constant presence and
assistance of a policeman
would help curb the growing
drug problem on campus.
"Prevention is the key to
this problem as we see it. The

explained, "but so far school
officials have noticed that the
number, of kids coming to
school 'high' has decreased."
Drug Problem
According to Walker, word
has gotten around campus
about the drug program and
die word is that this is not ihe
place for it to happen.


Daylight Saving Time

just too confusing


Two weeks from today, at
2 a.m., our clocks get turned
back an hour. It's the end of
what Tropical Bob calls
Daylight Slaving Time.
Messing with time trou-
bles T.B.
* If a pilot departs Charlotte
airport at or near 2,a.m., lands
at Arcadia Municipal at 1:30
a.m., then turns around and
returns, his flight log will show
he spent no time in the air
while flying 50 miles.
* If an infant is born at 1:59
a.m. and dies 10 minutes later,
will the death certificate show
it died before it was born?
* Is there one 2 a.m. or two 2
a.m.'s on Oct. 29?
Oooo. All this makes T.B. very
sleepy.

Growth management top
issue in citizen survey
Growth management continues to dominate as the
top issue for Sarasota County residents in the 2006
Citizens Survey, but has declined in importance for
people as they become more concerned about
affordable housing, taxes and jobs.
Although 23 percent of citizens are worried about
managing growth, 16 percent cited affordable
housing as the top issue in the county's survey,
edging ahead of traffic/transportation at 9 percent.
Results from the survey were presented to the
County Commission by Dr. Susan MacManus of the
University of South Florida. MacManus has
conducted the annual survey for the county for 15
years.
In rating the overall quality of life in Sarasota
County, a significant majority (89 percent) say the
quality is "excellent" or "good." Only 8 percent rate it
as "fair" and just 2 percent consider it "poor."
Almost nine out of 10 residents say they are "very"
or "somewhat" satisfied with services provided by
Sarasota County. More than half (55 percent) of the
residents say local government is the most
responsive to citizens needs compared to state and
federal governments.
Other significant findings include:
Eight out of 10 people (81 percent) support
renewing the penny infrastructure tax.
A majority of residents (54 percent) believe that
Sarasota County officials make a "real effort" to
solicit residents' views on taxes and services.
Two-thirds of citizens (66 percent) believe that
county officials give residents with different
viewpoints an equal chance to state their views
and concerns.
"This is a very strong indicator that we are on
course with what citizen's value in our community,"
said Jim Ley, Sarasota County administrator. "It's
important that we continue to seek input from
residents to help guide the county in its strategic
planning for the future."
The survey was conducted by phone from a
random sample of 800 Sarasota County residents
18 years of age and older from July 25 to Aug. 10,
2006.

'Green' practices earn honors for VGCC


BY MARY APOSTOLU
STAFF WRITER

Venice Golf & Country
Club is the newest member of
Sarasota County's Green Bus-
iness Partnership Certifi-
cation Program.
The program is a collabo-
rative effort between busi-
nesses and local government
to encourage commercial
recycling and other sustain-
able operating practices. It is
open to all businesses in
Sarasota County that meet
resource conservation mea-
sures and pass an on-site cer-
tification assessment.
During a recent presenta-
tion, Sarasota County Recy-
cling Program Coordinator
Tom Franklin lauded VGCC
for its proactive approach
toward sound landscaping
and water conservation mea-.
sures.
This is not the first time
Sarasota County has recog-
nized the Venice community.

In April, VGCC was honored
with a Sarasota County Con-
servation Award for resource
conservation.
"Venice Golf and Country
Club has taken a leadership
role in environmental issues."
said VGCC General Manager
Jim Schell. "I don't let green
issues dictate business deci-
sions, but include them in the
business process.
"Environmental conserva-
tion is part of our planning
process. We've planted nearly
15,000 native plants and have
undertaken tremendous ef-
forts to restore all of our pre-
serves to their natural state."
What VGCC does
VGCC has instituted water
conservation measures by
using storm water run-off for
irrigation, and practicing
"ferti-gation" a process
that involves directly inject-
ing liquid fertilizer into irriga-
tion. This method is comput-
erized and zone specific,
eliminating waste and error.
VGCC's oil and fuel storage
and hazardous waste mini-
mization practices are state of
the art. Equipment is washed
on a special pad so grease and
oil drains to a sump drum.
Microbes and enzymes are
then added to break down
grease and oils. The water can
then be used again to clean
equipment.
VGCC joins Dave's Auto
Repair, Babe's Ace Hardware
& Plumbing and Suncoast
Defensive Driving School in
the partnership, which was
initiated under a Florida.
Department of Environ-
mental Protection grant. Like
every business certified
under the Green Business
Partnership, VGCC received
an official certificate and seal.
"We feel very strongly in
our commitment to help
businesses achieve their goals
in. helping the environment
- as well as their business
bottom line," said Franklin.

Pine View pulls the plug on laptops


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Pine View School's pilot
laptop program took a
thrashing last year. Literally.
Nearly one in three ninth
graders who received a laptop
computer to research and
complete school work assign-
ments on campus and at
home, returned it to the
school in disrepair.
Of 220 laptops, 29 percent
were damaged, according to
Lyna Ruiz, instructional tech-
nology coach at Pine View
School for the Gifted in
Osprey.
Most of the damage was to
computer screens even
though each came with a
padded case.
"We paid for a three-year
warranty, but breakage of
screens wasn't covered. That's
why we had to eliminate" the
option to take them home,
Ruiz said.
Luckily, insurance covered
the immediate cost of repairs.
On the flip side, the insurer
wasn't going to renew Pine
View's coverage, Ruiz said.
"We would have had even
more breakage due to
expanding the program this
year," she said.
How were screens dam-
aged? The reasons varied.
"I've heard it all," Ruiz said.
"Mostly they said things like
'my brother stepped on it' or 'I
dropped my backpack.' One
student said he had a pencil
resting on the keyboard and
someone closed the screen
on it. Another said they
tripped over (exposed) wiring
and dropped it. It was always
somebody else's fault.
"The only excuse I didn't
hear was my dog ate it."
Already wired
The high breakage rate
wasn't the only reason school
officials decided to pull the
plug on students taking lap-
tops home, Ruiz said.
Surveys revealed that stu-
dents already had access to
home computers.
I "We reevaluated the pro-
gram," she said. "There was a
lack of accountability ... stu-
dents and parents weren't
responsible for the damage.
"We looked at surveys and


all the obstacles to the pro-
gram and learned it would be
(just as) beneficial for stu-
dents to have computers on
hand during the day (only).
"Then we found students
had access to computers at
home. We were prepared to
supply one for those that did-
n't have access. But in every
case a student reported they
had access to a computer in
their home.
"That's what allowed this
program to change."
How did students take the
news that laptops could no
longer go home with them?
"They were OK with it. I'm
sure some were disappointed.
They all seemed to under-
stand," Ruiz said.
Expanding
Tenth graders began par-
ticipating in the program for
the first time this year.
Computers showed up about
three weeks ago.
Students no longer carry
school-issued laptops from
class to class, reducing the
chance of breakage. In fact,
the computers never leave
the room. They're stored on a
cart in each classroom and
returned to the cart at the end
of class. Carts can be moved
from classroom to classroom
by a tech specialist or instrut-
tor.
Students simply move
from class to class, using dif-
ferent laptops as needed.
They log into an estab-
lished account, giving instant
access to homework through-
out the day. Textbooks, home-
work assignments, research
material and science experi-
ments can be found on the
,instructor's Web site. All
ninth- and 10th-grade teach-
ers at Pine View School have
one, Ruiz said.
If students need to do
homework off campus, they
can either e-mail the work
begun in class to themselves,
or copy it onto a jump drive
the size of their index finger.
The jump drive simply plugs
into a home computer.
Overcoming the breakage
hurdle allowed Pine View to
expand its pilot laptop pro-
gram even though technical
support was reduced from six
to four positions due to


County approves funding

for updated CRA plan


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County commis-
sioners Tuesday approved
spending $149,468 to update
the Englewood Redevelop-
ment Plan.
The plan identifies a need
for periodic updates in order
to focus on activities neces-
sary for the revitalization of
the Olde Englewood district.
District initiatives current-
ly include:
Sarasota County Storm-
water Drainage Plan For
Englewood
Retail Market Analysis
Report
Housing Study for
Residential Properties on
Dearborn Street
Storefront Improvement

East Dearborn and Pine
Street Improvement Plans

Englewood Town Center
Revitalization Plan
Englewood Interstate
Connector Study
'Gottfried Creek Storm-
water Basin Master Plan
Sarasota County Parks &
Airport Master Plan for
Buchan Airport & Kiwanis
Park.
Before the plan was
approved, several commis-
sioners spoke out on how lim-
ited they felt their roles have
become in Englewood CRA
matters.
"We don't seem to have
any involvement," said Com-
missioner Shannon Staub.
"We're not even listed as a
stakeholder to come and
visit," she added, indicating
that the CRA and the board
ought to work more closely.
"It seems that on several
studies the commission
winds up getting a report as if
it's a done deal," Staub said.

If all goes well, said Ruiz,
Pine View will expand the'
partnership with Hewlett-
Packard next year to serve
11th graders.
"We want to be in the fore-
front of our country" when it


"Is there some way you can
ensure that CRA meetings are
not on the same day as com-
mission meetings? And that
we can get some kind of writ-
ten update earlier in the
process?"
Get it done
County Administrator Jim
Ley reaffirmed the impor-
tance of the county commis-
sioners in any decisions made
within the CRA.
"You are the CRA; they're
only an advisory board," Ley
said. "You need to set the
tone, tenor and expectations
of an analysis like this. You'll
be involved in an early dis-
cussion item before we ever
get rolling on this contract."
Commissioner Paul
Mercier then weighed in.
"We could do an awful lot
with $150,000," Mercier said,
of the amount going to
Stantec Consulting Services.
"We seem to continue to
do studies, continue to do
visioning. Let's get something
done. I'm all for Englewood,
but it takes us so long to get
something done that when
we finally want to get it done,
citizens come forward and
say, 'We weren't consulted.'"
CRA Coordinator Chris
Davis was quick to assure the
board that their input and
presence was welcome.
"The meetings were antici-
pated to involve the board of
county commissioners, who
are the CRA board," Davis
said. "We will certainly get
you involved early on, possi-
bly in a workshop setting."
Davis then reminded the
commissioners that the pro-
jects the CRA is currently
undertaking were "identified
several years ago" with the
board's approval.

Hans Behrens a facilitator and an enforcer


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFFWRITER

Building and Code
Enforcement Director Hans
Behrens does not relish his
role as the enforcer of state
and local laws, codes and
ordinances. He prefers to be a
facilitator for those who want
to get things done in a proper
manner.
But when enforcement
becomes necessary, he
believes that it must be done
vigorously and correctly.
"It is difficult," said
Behrens, "because you
almost always have someone
upset with you no matter how
well you do your job. Some
people think we are too
lenient, while others think we
are too strict."
"The biggest problems
come when a property owner
or developer tries to take
shortcuts in an effort to save
time or money. Too often, the
lowest bid, or the cheapest
product or service, ends up
costing more in the long run,
particularly if they deal with
an unlicensed contractor or
try to avoid the permitting
process.
"The laws and codes," he
said, "are there to protect the
public by establishing appro-
priate standards, and proce-
dures which will assure the
standards are met.
Unfortunately, however, reg-
ulations do not guarantee
workmanship. That's where
our inspectors come in."

Coordination
"The Florida Building
Code," said Behrens, "is mod-
eled after the National
Building Code, which was
developed by the
International Code Council
it is really one of the high-
est standards around, and is
also very well written."
"Whereas the engineering
department takes care of per-

the new Fire Station 3, a 16,000-square-foot facility to be located on Laurel Road east of 1-75 in about one year.


mits for 'horizontal' projects
like utilities and roadways, we
are required to permit every-
thing built 'vertically' all
buildings and structures.
"Depending on the size
and type of each project," he
continued, "we may have to,
obtain the approval of several
city departments before we
can issue a certificate of com-
pletion or occupancy. It is not
at all unusual for a project to
require approval of planning
and zoning, engineering,
stormwater, utilities, public
works, fire and police."
"We are required to check
the designs and plans with
regard to building, plumbing,
electrical, mechanical, eleva-
tion, fire safety, and FEMA
requirements. Then our
inspectors go out to the sites
to assure that what is actually
being built follows all the
approved plans."


Contractors
Another major function of
this department is to confirm
that contractors doing busi-
ness in the city are properly
licensed and insured. Their
insurance must include cer-
tain levels of liability cover-
age, as well as workers' com-
pensation for employees.
If an application for a per-.
mit is filed by or on behalf of a
contractor who has no city
license, or who is not proper-
ly insured, the permit is sim-
ply denied.
"However," said Behrens,
"if we find work being done
by a contractor who isn't
licensed or insured, we are
authorized to call either the
police 'department or the
Florida Department of
Professional and Business
Regulation for assistance. The
offending individual may be
arrested and jailed for viola-


tion of either state or local
laws it's a serious matter."
"Although the law in
Florida does allow a property
owner to act as his own con-
tractor, the plans must still be
approved by our department,
the proper permits must be
issued, and the work must be
inspected by the city at each
stage of completion. That's
why it is always best to have a
licensed contractor involved
- to make sure all the steps
are followed and the work is
done correctly.
"We also see people get
into trouble by not getting
everything in writing. A
smooth-talking contractor
can make everything sound
like it's going to be wonderful,
but if it's not in writing in a
legal contract, there is no;
guarantee. A lot of problems
can be avoided with a little
legal:assistance up front."

Staffing
Besides the department
director and deputy director,
the full-time staff includes
five inspectors on the build-
irfg side, two inspectors on
the code enforcement side,
, three permitting people and
one administrative aide.
There is also one vacant posi-
tion for a plans examiner, for
which the city is actively
recruiting and interviewing to
fill at this.time.
"Technically," said
Behrens, "we have two vacan-
cies a building inspector
and a plans examiner: But
because of the city's recent
hiring freeze, we will not be
filling the building inspector
opening for awhile."
"It's no secret that several
other government agencies in
southwest Florida have
recently increased their pay
ranges considerably in order


to attract and retain qualified
people. Hopefully, when the
city of Venice completes the
pay study on which they've
been working for the past few
weeks, we will be able to
adjust our pay scales accord-
ingly."
Slowdown?
At a very young 71,
Behrens is one of the most
recognized building officials
in the state of Florida, as a
result of his long involvement
and leadership in the indus-
try.
Prior to being hired by the
city of Venice over 11 years
ago, he had been with Lee
County for nine years and
Charlotte County for seven
years.
In 1984, the Building
Officials Association of
Florida awarded him the
Southwest Florida District
Building Official of the Year,
and in 1992, he was named
statewide Building Official of
the Year by the same group.
Besides serving as president
of BOAF and being awarded
an honorary lifetime mem-
bership in the organization,
Behrens was also one of the
founding faculty of the BOAF
continuous education pro-
gram.
"I have been with the city
of Venice," said Behrens,
"through several administra-
tions and reorganizations. For
me, it does not matter how
the organization is struc-
tured. The responsibility and
work is still the same.
"I have a high degree of
motivation professionally,
and a strong dedication to the
city. I will not let my years of
experience and training go to
waste.
"My intention every day is
to give my best and con-
tribute whatever I can to the
leadership of this department
and the service of its cus-
tomers."

The statistics are even
more impressive when
viewed in the context of the
comparative national and
state rankings.
For example, though the
statewide rank of Sarasota
Memorial Hospital's care for
heart attacks is four stars, but
its national rank is only three
stars. In heart failure cases,
however, both the statewide
and the national rankings
were two stars for that peri-
od.
Doctors Hospital in
Sarasota, on the other hand,
ranks higher with heart fail-
ures (four stars statewide and
national), and lower for heart
attacks (two stars statewide
and national).
'Although we appreciate
those comparative ratings,"
said Director of Quality
Sharon DelPuppa, "we are
actually more concerned
with striving toward a 100
percent score in every area
ourselves, rather than with
what the other hospitals are
doing."
"We conduct an extensive
continuing education
process involving all of our
physicians and staff," she
said, "to raise their awareness
of the standards, as well as
identifying any modifications
we might need to make."
"We've been tracking this
information," she said, "since
long before it was actually
required by the government.
It has only been in the last
two or three years that the
reporting requirements were
greatly expanded and speci-
fled.
"Every patient chart is
.evaluated from start to finish,
to make sure that we fol-
lowed the protocols recom-
mended for each type of case
from admission to dis-
charge."

cases,"'aid Pietranton, "we
do the same analysis and
reporting on pneumonia and
surgery-related cases as well.
We score very high in those
comparisons also. An excep-
tional medical staff is the key
to our maintaining high
quality service."
"We get calls from other
hospitals," she said, "asking
us how we are consistently
obtaining such dramatic
results. It's nice to be in a
position to help others
achieve higher service quali-'
ty."

Shop around t
"This is really the first
thing Medicare has put out,"
said Pietranton, "that is con-
sumer-oriented. The whole
purpose is for the informa-
tion to be easily accessible to
the public so that people can
comparison shop for their
medical services."
According to GNS, the raw
data upon which the heart
study was based were sup-
plied by hospitals nationwide
to the federal Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid
Services. Based on hospitals
that had treated-at least 30
eligible patients during the
study period, the number of
hospitals evaluated in the
study were 3,100 for heart
attacks and 3,600 for heart
failures.

SCHOOL BOARD NOTES

News from the Sarasota County School Board workshop on Oct.
10.

Self examination: Reacting to Superintendent Gary Norris'
resignation, member Kathy Kleinlein convinced fellow school
board members it is time for a self examination. The board agreed
to conduct a survey of past superintendents, school board mem-
bers and other school officials. The district will issue a request for
proposals from outside entities, including The Education
Foundation.
Still sticker shocked: The board gave its final go-ahead to
move forward with last minute additions to Riverview High's
replacement project. They OK'd the changes, and learned it will
cost at least another S 15 million to build. Total estimate for the
school is now S 125 million-S 135 million. Norris earlier warned that
each month the board doesn't decide on a final rebuild it escalates
another million dollars.
An expansion of Pine View School, estimated at S7 million a
year ago, has grown to $22 million for up to 2,500 students. It
would reach capacity in only three years, say officials. No decision
was made on whether to move forward.
Administrative reorganization: Citing a need to give the
next superintendent of schools maximum flexibility, the board
and Norris have agreed on a scaled-back administrative reorgani-
zation at The Landings administrative offices. A fleshed-out plan
will be announced at the next regular meeting.


SHARING, from Page 1A


Message sent
On Monday evening the
SAC, which is half school staff
and half parents and com-
munity members, again
raised the idea of placing at
least a portion of the funds
back into departments for
materials or equipment, an
idea voted down earlier by
staff.
It wasn't well received by
SAC members representing
staff.
"They will feel dumped,
on," Bachtel said.
"It would be demoralizing
to say (no deal) and have to
go back to the teachers ... It's
just as important' to have
happy aides."
SAC member and former
Venice police chief Jim Hanks
applauded the teachers' deci-
sion to share reward monies.
He urged SAC members to
accept the staff recommen-
dation with the caveat that
next time school recognition
monies are received, a por-
tion should be set aside for
programs.


He thanked teachers for
showing' staff unity in their
decision to share.
The board agreed, with
Greg Miller the only dissent-
ing vote. Miller and others
wanted to see half the funds
placed back into depart-
ments.
"How the money is dis-
tributed or whether .it's
donated back ... it's always
been challenged," Bachtel
'said.
"This is not the time to do
it," said school registrar Anne
McClellan. "This is a healing
time."

Siesta beach restoration


permit forwarded


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Florida authorities have
forwarded a draft copy of the
critical environmental permit
Sarasota County needs for its
$11.8-million south Siesta
Key beach sand replacement
project, which is scheduled to
begin next month after the
annual sea turtle nesting sea-
son ends.
.Late Monday, an e-mail
copy of the document was
received by county officials.
The project can now be
advertised so public com-
ments can be submitted to
state authorities. A final order
to begin the project will be
issued shortly thereafter.


"Then the Army Corps of
Engineers will issue its permit
for the project," said Curtis
Smith, an environmental ser-
vices project manager with
the county. "The process
won't allow it to move until
the state approves a water
quality certificate required by
the Clean Water Act."
The county commission
held a public hearing on the
special taxing district for
South Siesta Key beachfront
property owners who will pay
for a share of the project, :
"The taxing district will not
stand in the way of starting
this project," Smith said. "It
won't take effect until the
2008 tax year, at which time
the exact amount to be
assessed will be established.


The county commission will
only take public testimony at
the hearing."
In early November,
Manson Construction
Company crews are tentative-
ly scheduled to start pumping
850,000 cubic yards of off-
shore sand onto a stretch of
shoreline from 3,000 feet
south of Point of Rocks to the
southern tip of Siesta Key.
It should take between
three and four months to fully
reconstruct the beach, grade
it and clean it up before the
next turtle nesting season
begins on May 1.
While the offshore sand
may appear dark and gray,
experts say it will bleach in
the sun and look normal over
time.

McElyea said.
He added that although
the current statute allows

mph, that speed is very diffi-

In addition, he said, .the
unpaved roads that kids ride
on can be quite dangerous.

full of them," she said.
"There's' an area in South

The lieutenant's point is real-

unpaved areas right in the
middle of urban areas. It
could be really dangerous, so
I'm glad we're doing this."

OUR VIEW



Report says state tax policy helps us keep jobs


A s younger families move to Florida's Sun
Coast, and as housing costs soar, there is
a need to provide jobs with higher pay
close to the growing communities where the
families live.
Yet each year more American manufactur-
ers move their factories to Mexico or to Asian
nations, where paychecks are much smaller.
As companies go overseas, thousands of
U.S. workers lose their jobs.
Florida may have a better chance of hold-
ing on to jobs than most states. That is
because Florida has one of the best tax
polices in the nation.
The 69-year-old Tax Foundation, a
Washington-based, nonpartisan organiza-
tion, says Florida has the fifth-best tax cli-
mate in America.
Only Wyoming, South Dakota, Alaska and
Nevada outrank us in their study. Texas, New
Hampshire, Montana, Delaware and Oregon


are just behind us in positions six through 10.
Taxes aren't the only issue.
Florida struggles to provide workforce
housing, our land costs are high and some of
the Sun Coast lacks land zoned for industry.
Then there is the added concern over hurri-
canes.
But the Sunshine State still has many
advantages over the four states that rank
higher in the Tax Foundation study. Most are
somewhat (or very) remote, with long, cold
winters and a smaller population base from
which to draw skilled workers.
The U.S. Department of Labor suggests
that most companies don't shift operations
overseas. They tend to relocate to neighbor-
ing states where they find "the greatest com-
petitive advantage."
Tax policy plays a significant role in entic-
ing industry to an area.
The Tax Foundation argues that "taxes


affect business decisions, job creation and
retention, plant location, competitiveness
and the long-term health of a state's econo-
my."
"States with the best tax systems will be
most competitive in attracting new business-
es and be the most effective at generating
economic and employment growth," the
report's authors explain.
Although Texas' tax policy puts it a step
below us on the tax ladder, the Lone Star
state's housing costs are generally much
lower, its zoning can be less restrictive and
Texas has ample land to build factories. Texas
also has one of the advantages we have: a
warm climate.
With the November election looming, vot-
ers concerned about the need for more and
better jobs should question candidates about
where they stand in making changes in tax
policy.


"States do not enact tax changes (increas-
es or cuts) in a vacuum," authors of the Tax
Foundation report write. "Every tax law will,
in some way, change a state's competitive
position relative to its immediate neighbors,
its geographic region and even globally.
Ultimately it will affect the state's national
standing as a place to live and to do busi-
ness."
Decisions made by city and county offi-
cials also have a significant impact on the
reaction of companies looking for a place to
build a factory or open a regional office.,
Officials at all levels need to consider how
their actions will reflect on their economic
development plans.
Providing new employment opportunities
should be a concern for all of us. Finding
and holding down a good job is
essential to creating the "good life" for our
families.


Times change,


as do opinions


BOB VEDDER
P1IbL1~l~t
Every year the county does
a--studyto find out what itrs-
that is on your mind and how
you think the county is doing.
It helps guide where to put
resources and emphasis. It
also asks what you think
about continuing the 1-cent
sales surtax, which comes up
for a vote in a year or so. (I
assume this tells someone
how aggressively they will
need to promote it).
When the county started
this exercise, housing prices,
taxes, insurance and gas
weren't what was on people's
minds. Even growth wasn't as
big. Back then it was crime,
which now barely hits the
radar screen.
You will not be surprised
by the four major concerns
are of the Sarasota County cit-
izens surveyed, most of
whom were full-time resi-
dents.
Uppermost on their minds
is growth, which was the top
concern bf. 23 percent, while
affordable housing moved
into second place at 19 per-
cent. Transportation, mean-
ing roads and bridges, moved
to third with 9 percent, tied
with taxes. Personally, I was
shocked that insurance was
not one of the top ones,
although maybe people
lumped that in with taxes.
Yet when asked about what
was pressuring their personal
finances, home insurance
lead the list at 24 percent, fol-
lowed by property taxes and
gas prices. Only 6 percent said_
health costs. It is amazing to
me, with the very high cost of
health care, how it has been
relegated to the bottom. It is
sort of like having a headache
that really hurts, but when
you drop something on your
foot you don't even think
about the headache.
Growth covered a myriad
of concerns, from water to
crime to ruining the area's
charm. The top one is conges-
tion brought on by overbur-
,dened roads. Still, some felt
there were enough roads, and
overall more than a third of
the people thought the quali-
ty of life in Sarasota county
was excellent.
Yet the respondents' take
on the quality of service of the


county was not quite so
strong. Of course, it depends
on how you look at a survey
like this. For instance, you
could say that 87 percent are
very satisfied or somewhat
satisfied with service.
However you could say only
18 percent are very satisfied.
That certainly does not match
the over-the-top service Jim
Ley is striving for.
In the same vein, the com-
munication the county gives
its residents is rated excellent
-byfly-9percent;-thatdid go-
up from the year before. Most
people are somewhat satis-
fied, which I suppose in gov-
ernment work is pretty good.
A majority of the residents
think the county seeks other
opinions on taxes and ser-
vices, yet a large 37 percent
doesn't think it does.
It comes as no surprise,
however, that the citizens
think that local government
was more efficient than the
state, which was more effi-
cient than the federal govern-
ment.
How many people want
the extra 1-cent tax? Eighty-
one percent of the people (the
survey has an, error rate of
about 4 percent) think we
should continue the tax to
provide added infrastructure
like libraries and parks. This is
very strong, but is down from
87 percent last year. I assume
the school tax vote helped
make that adjustment.
What people' said they
wanted the money on was
interesting: 42 percent said
spend it on roads, clearly the
thing most wanted, while 10
percent mentioned schools.
The clear message: Put
emphasis on roads.

Starting this week I am
going to divide my column in
two; the other part will
appear on Wednesday.
So why am I doing this?We
realize that on the whole our
columns and stories are too
long more than people in
this fast-paced society want
to wade through. So we are
going to work on getting our
writing tighter, making our
stories shorter and to the
point. This should allow us to
write more stories and get to
some beats we have not been
covering. I hope we will get
more columns with some dif-
ferent opinions. We see us
having a little too much of the
same.
I am sure this will not hap-
pen overnight, so don't be
impatient. But you should
start slowly seeing a change.
Help us along by suggesting
new columnists, story ideas,
subjects and the like.

Red tide a problem, a symptom


Editor:
'Contrary to Ms. Kahn's claim, red tide is the result of an
algae bloom but the cause of the bloom remains a mystery. It
could result from the things mentioned in her letter, but
could also be a result of runoff from the many chemicals and
fertilizers used on our lawns.
I would also like to point out that the Atlantic Ocean isn't
thatpure either.
For years NewYork City had been dumping tons and tons
of its garbage in the ocean 10 miles out or beyond the conti-
nental shelf. I've spent many days at the New Jersey shore and
all kinds of things have been washing up on those beaches:
condoms, needles and syringes, bottles just about anything
that can be carried by the tides. It is disgraceful.
Now, much of NewYork's and New Jersey's garbage is
burned in a state-of-the art incinerator.If Florida doesn't have
any of these incinerators, then the politicians should start
looking into them.
We are a throw-away society. We need to move in the direc-
tion of waste not, want not.
Recycling, though costly, is another positive alternative.
Sarasota County does an excellent job of recycling.
It's up to every individual to be conscious of waste and its
result. Only after this is engraved in our minds will we start to
turn things around.

The mess started
with the Democrats
Editor:
Anne Marie DiRoma has
all the solutions: just blame
Bush.
If Clinton had gotten
Osama bin Laden when he
was offered to him in 1999, we
wouldn't have had a Sept. 11,
the World Trade Center would
still be there and we wouldn't
have been in Afghanistan.
Clark told the 9/11
Commission that he told
Clinton to bomb al-Qaida.
Clinton just postponed the
problem.
Clinton was the one who
wanted to remove Saddam
from power; Bush just carried
it out. We were authorized by
the resolutions to do what we
did. If we didn't and Saddam


did reactivate WMDs, the
Democrats and Anne Marie
would be the first ones to
blame Bush. No, they didn't
bomb us. They were just
shooting at our planes.
No war is run to perfection.
The only difference now is we
have people like DiRoma crit-
icizing instead of standing
behind our president like we
did during World War II. Yes,
we waited duringWorldWar II
until Japan bombed our ships
in Pearl (Hawaii
was not yet a state), but we
attacked Germany, which
did not bomb Pearl Harbor.
Clinton did what was best
for Clinton and in the process
embarrassed the office.
Berger stole the Millennium
Plan from the archives and
the present administration


never got to see it. Yes, they
were great .and the
Democrats' plan for the
future is so vague, no one
knows what it is.
God bless President Bush
and God bless all those who
support him and America.

to claim that our touch-
screens are 100 percent tam-
per proof. The Brennan
report states that despite all
the normal precautions,
"Touch-screen machines, at
the very least, are susceptible
to technical glitches, and, at
the worst, highly vulnerable
to fraud."
3. There is absolutely no
way to prove (or disprove) the
accuracy of touch-screens'
memory records since there is
no independent paper record
of what the voter intended.
4. There should be little
county expenditure beyond
the price for 166 optical-scan-
ning machines. Data from
studies in North Carolina and
Florida predict that after


recouping the purchase cost
of the machines, there will be
a 30-percent reduction every
year in the total annual
expenditure of the supervisor
of elections office.
We read reports of errors
and failures from voting all
over the country. The conclu-
sion is that it is time to give up
touch-screen machines.
I hope all Sarasota County
voters on Nov. 7 will remem-
ber to vote for the amend-
ment to change to voter-veri-
fled paper ballots with inde-
pendent random audit of
election results. Let us have
cost-efficient, accurate, verifi-
able elections in Sarasota
County.

Editor:
In newspapers the reports
on the last wish of one of the
Amish victims at the school
house were printed with mis-
leading headlines. I assume
the fault lies with the AP news
agency, but papers should
have caught the mistake.
In bold print the headline
states that Marian Fisher had
asked "to be shot first." What
she actually seems to have
said was, "Shoot me and leave
the other ones loose." That
has a very different meaning,
for it brings to mind the quote
from literature, "Greater love
hath no man, than to give up
his life for a friend."

Bottleneck. About the
Venice Elementary School,
taking the children and pick-
ing them up and all the traffic
involved: I don't know who
designed that, but I believe
that they just did absolutely
the wrong thing. It is a bottle-
neck. I don't care what day it
is or what was in the newspa-
per about the traffic being
better. It is not better. It
should have been put over on
the side of the building, out
toward the front. The cones
have helped, but the mothers
who pull up there facing west
to turn in to pick their chil-
dren up, they cause a traffic
jam. There ought to be a
policeman there at all times,
not just once in awhile. These
mothers, instead of getting in
the long line, they stay there
hoping whenever the traffic
starts moving forward, that
someone will let them in, but
it ties up the traffic behind
them, keeps people from
turning because people are
trying to go around them.
Home team. Regarding
Mr. Ed Martin's column in
the Gondolier Sun, Time for
Change: Mr. Martin, I submit
to you and those who share
your agenda that the change
that you ask for may be good ,
for the city ofVenide, but, as in
baseball, before we make a
change in the lineup, we
ought to look at the stats of
the people who you reference
in this article. First of all,
Mr. Martin, you reference
yourself as a full-time resi-
dent of Venice; however, it's a
fairly well-known fact that
you spend your summers up
north, and while we won't
begrudge you your tax status
as far as a city resident, it's
deceptive for you to mislead
the public into thinking that
you area f ll-tiTWO.cir pf
Venice resident. While we're
looking. at MN. Martin, let's
look at Mr. V6dder, the pib-
lisher of the Gondolier Sun.
Mr. Vedder is not a city resi-
dent, does not have a home-.
stead in the city. Mr. Vedder's
building, which the Venice
Gondolier Sun does not own,
is in the city; however, they
don't own it, so they're not cit-
izens of direct interest into
matters concerning the city.
Now let's look at the other
side Mike Miller, a long-
time city ofVenice homeown-
er and a longtime city of
,Venice, owner of several dif-
ferent commercial properties
around towh. The members
of the Boorie Law Firm are
longtime, full-time, year-
round citizens of the city of
Venice and also have their


business holdings here. So
the point of all this is that the
proponents of the anti-
growth agenda are not actual-
ly full-time Venice residents.
Editor's note: The
Gondolier Sun building is
owned by Sun Coast Media
Group Inc., the paper's parent
company. The paper has been
based on the island of Venice
for 60, years. The paper and
Martin are on record as sup-
porting stricter height limits
but not opposing growth in a
sensible manner.
Charity at home. First of
all, I want to thank you for
Let'em Have It; I think it's a
great thing. My concern is
that with immigration as it is
and people coming in for
lower wages, some of us in the
lower echelon of Venice will
not be able to stay and be
good minimum-wage people
or a little bit above that. Also, I
am shocked that some of the
community services treat
some of us so badly when
we're down on our luck the
first time in out life. I wish
people could see that you
help your own first. The gen-
eral consensus that I have
heard is that Venice is very
snobby and does not want
tourists to think there are
people down and out in town,
and I don't mean street peo-
ple. And no one's reaching out
to help anybody. They're
scared to death the business-
es in town will scorn them or
something. Let's take care of
the people in Venice and the
United States and forget
about the foreigners until we
know everyone has food on
the table.
The No.' 1 thing. The most
important issue in the Venice
City Council election is to put
city council members in there
-that %ii:,5goi thgrdiz&J1At,;
is going on In' this beautiful'
city of ours.
Sharing. What do Gary
Norris and Dean Calamaras
have in common? They both
supported the 1-mill tax
increase and they both won't
be paying it.
Another's shoes. This is for
the person who complained
about the so-called service
dogs. I too live on the island of
Venice and have a prescrip-
tion for a service dog. You cer-
tainly have a point about
germs in the cart. Are you
aware that many stores have
sanitary wipes for. the human
germs on the cart handles?
I understand they can be
quite nasty. However, your
judgment about the dogs not
being service animals it's
just that, your judgment. No


one knows the real needs of
another person. A physician
may know a great deal more
than an acquaintance or an
observer. My prayers will be
with you so that you will
never have a need for this
type of service.
Try the Y. I've been reading
in the Gondolier Sun about
the overweight, out-of-shape
Venice police officers. I had
occasion to see one on
Saturday night and I now
know what everyone is talk-
ing about. These police offi-
cers might do well to sign up
at the Y on Center Road.
Haddie Gallo gives a great
belly buster exercise class you
can all use to your advantage.
Parked. I would like to
know who has the right to
park in Centennial Park and
keep their car covered day
and night for months, and the
police never, ever ticket that
car. Must be someone who
has good connections
because anybody else would
have been ticketed and
towed. This car sits there all
day, all night for months and
is covered up. Not right.
Remediation. Today's
opinion said that teaching the
way it's been done the last 50
years isn't going to be nearly
good enough for the nex-t 50.
Maybe not, but we learned to
read in the third or fourth
grade. We didn't have remedi-
al help as far up as high
school. In fact, we had no
remedial help at all.
Bandwagon. I am a
Sarasota County voter of 25
years. My family and I, more
than 30 strong, will not vote
for candidates who use nega-
tive ads. We are jumping over
party lines in such cases. I
hope more of our county vot-
ers get on the bandwagon.
-Busy: w s jD nol encmU--
age Gary Norris to take'back
his resignation. Ask the teach-
ers in the trenches what they
feel about the NeXt
Generation ideas. More busy
work and paper work on an
already over-stressed staff.
I.D., please. Many of the
towns on the east coast of the
U.S. and more especiallyithe
east coast of Florida now
require address identification
on buildings facing the bay or
ocean. Beachfront properties
must display I.D. numbers
facing the water. This has
been important in several
beach and water emergencies
the short time that it has
been adopted by many
municipalities. Maybe the
commissioners will pick up
on this idea.

BOB BOWDEN
GUEST COLUMNIST

Wrong place

+ wrong time

= big problem

I present only a problem
today.
I have no resolution.
It's not really my problem,
but I have a feeling a number
of you might be familiar with
it. It began several months
ago when my adult son's
truck was in a traffic accident
at a Sarasota intersection.
He was not at fault, as a
police report on the incident
concludes.
The other driver, in fact,,
was charged. And the police
turned over that driver's
insurance information to my
son, who contacted the
insurance company listed on
the man's card.
At first, things were all
smiles. We'll be in touch!


Then came an insurance
company stonewall-while it
"investigated." Finally came
a letter from the company
stating that the driver of the
vehicle at fault was, in fact,
not a current client.
Bottom line: It was not
going to pay for repairs or
replacement.
Now, no one was injured
in this low-speed collision,
but damage to my son's old
truck was considered "total"
by the investigating officer.
And total it was, since the
truck was undriveable.
The left front wheel
rubbed against its wheel well
while attempting to turn. The
left headlight was broken.
The bumper was bent terri-
bly. And the dash was pushed
inward.
I looked it over. Repairs
were possible, but would
exceed the value of the truck.
My son didn't have what is
called "comprehensive" auto
insurance. It's expensive and
not all motorists opt for it.
"Collision" coverage insures
that his insurance company
will pay if he's at fault.
Comprehensive covers "acts
of God" and similar- occur-
rences not his fault.
He then asked his insur-
ance company, "What can I
do?"
In essence, his agency
shrugged. Not our problem.


VEDDER....


Friday is to bring you each
week the lowest gas price in
the area. We are, going to pro-
mote the gas station doing
the best to keep our gas prices
lower. This week it was the
Hess station near State Road
681.
We will be using a Web
site gas stations can post
their prices to each day:
autos.msn.com. If we find low
prices only on the day we
check, we will vary the day.


If there are other ideas like
this you'd like to see, let us
know.
So, what will my
Wednesday column contain?
That will be my column of
short thoughts on a variety of
subjects. In that column you
will get Isms and By's-Crack as
well as the little gossipy
kinds of things I have put in
the second half of the weekly
column I have done for 20
years or so.


Give me your feedback,
please.

er had an elephant on it, in

Well, whose problem is it?
Entirely my son's, it
appears. His truck is ruined,
he can't afford to just write off
the truck while buying
another vehicle, he can't rent
a vehicle without reimburse-
ment being guaranteed and
no one will help him.
No, he can't afford the cost
to sue the (low-income)
motorist who hit him. And
remember, this was an acci-
dent without injury; no
lawyer is interested in recov-
ering vehicle damage costs
alone. Where's the payoff for
the lawyer? Lawyers want a
percentage of "pain and suf-
fering" damages.
So my son is driving my
wife's minivan at the
moment.
She spends each evening
scanning classified ads for
vehicles he might be able to
afford. She spends some
weekend days looking at the
back-row offerings of dealer-
ships.
With her by my side, we
bought a car two weekends
ago.
Just in case my son needs
our minivan a bit longer.
And as things stand now,
there's no predicting when
he'll again have a paid-for
vehicle to call his own.
It's a problem, isn't it?
I have no solution. But
there ought to be one.

LaMorte enters prison on his birthday

Convicted child molester

LaMorte got a 21-year sen-

Girls

line up

for district


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High volleyball
team has the unenviable task
of getting up for teams it has
already handled this week as
the Class 5A District 12
Tournament is scheduled for
this week at the Teepee.
The Lady Indians, ranked
No. 3 in Class 5A, defeated all
seven district foes during the
regular season. Most they
defeated handily. They even
beat Charlotte twice.
The district tournament
begins Tuesday with four
matches.
Top seed Venice (21-4)
meets eighth seed North Port
at 4 p.m. Fourth seed
Lakewood Ranch faces fifth
seed Bayshore at 5:30 p.m.
Second seed Charlotte plays
seventh seed Southeast at 7
p.m. Third seed Manatee
takes on sixth seed Port
Charlotte at 8:30 p.m.
The semifinals will be on
Wednesday. The winner of
Venice/North Port will play
the winner of Lakewood
Ranch/Bayshore at 6 p.m. The
winner of Charlotte-
/Southeast will play the win-
ner of Manatee/Port
Charlotte at 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday.
The championship match
is at 7 p.m. Thursday. The top
two finishers advance to
regional play. The district
champion plays its first
regional match at home. The
runnerup plays its first
regional match on the road.
Venice is the defending 5A
state champion. Venice was
state runnerup in 2004. The
Lady Indians only lost one
player from that squad to
graduation 5A Player of
the Year Dana Dumas.
The Lady Indians have two
seniors on this year's team -
outside hitter Natalie
Gaudreau and middle hitter
Ashley Graf.
This year's 5A state semifi-
nals and finals are Nov. 10-11
at The Lakeland Center.


Regional golf

on Monday

The Venice High girls golf
team will return to the course
where it won the regional title
last year.
The Lady Indians will be
back at Manatee County
Course to'defend the Region 5
on Monday. Tee time is noon.
The Venice girls are fresh
from winning the Class 2A
District 14 Tournament last
Monday, Oct. 9, at Deep
Creek.
The Lady Indians finished
seventh in the state last year.
Most of that team has
returned. The Lady Indians
are led by sophomores Casey
Kennedy and Crystal Smith.
Junior Katie Kennedy and
senior Megan Clipse also have
consistent.
This year's girls state finals
are Oct. 24-25 at The Saints in
Port St. Lucie.
Meanwhile, the Venice
boys golf team will be playing
in Region 5 at Vasari Country
Club in Naples. The Indians
were second in the District 14
event last week at Kingsway.
This year's boys state finals
are at the Fairwinds in Fort
Pierce.

Indians overcome obstacles for 1st'W'


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


A disjointed, dysfunctional
game never felt so sweet.
Finally, after seven long
weeks of frustration, Venice
High football has hit the win
column.
Forgotten were three
turnovers and 150 yards in
penalties. All that mattered
was the bottom line -
Venice 31, Port Charlotte 7.
The district victory left a
crack open for Venice to still
squeeze into post season. The
Indians must defeat
Lakewood Ranch this coming
Friday and get some help.
The Indians got their first
win on the road in front of a
big Port Charlotte homecom-
ing crowd.
"We felt like this was out
homecoming," said senior
running back/linebacker Al
Mitchell, who gave a strong
effort on both sides of the
ball. "We came in with our
business suits. We did our
job."
The Venice coaching staff
mixed things up. Three quar-
terbacks saw substantial play-
ing time. The defense was
blitz crazy against pass happy
Port.
The base veer offense con-
trolled the ball and the tempo
of the game despite all the
flags.
Freshman Trey Burton
started at quarterback, made
a couple of nice runs before
getting intercepted on the
fourth play from scrimmage.
"I was pretty nervous,"
admitted Burton, whose pri-
mary position this season has
been safety. .... '
Burton more than made
up for his mistake just three
plays later, intercepting a
Kevin McLafferty pass at the
35 and returning it all the way
to the Pirate 1-yard line. Kyle
Callahan came and scored on
the quarterback sneak, as
Venice was up early.
"I should have taken it to
the house," added Burton,
who had two interceptions on
the night to boost his season
total to four.
Callahan, the starter for
most of the season, flourished
in the three QB system. He..
had a solid game, completing
two passes for 44 yards. He
wasn't intercepted and he
didn't fumble.
Gerry Hunek also looked
comfortable running the "0"7
after throwing a first half
interception. He engineered
three scoring drives.
Venice put together its
longest scoring drive of the
night late in the second quar-
ter, marching 72 yards on 14
plays to go up 14-0 at the half.
Junior running back Paul
Costanzo was the catalyst. He
caught an 18-yard pass from
Hunek to move the ball near
midfield. He later popped a
17-yard gain to put the ball on


the Pirate 18. Three plays
later, he busted up the gut for
a 12-yard TD run.
Two personal foul calls
against Port Charlotte after
the halftime buzzer sounded
put Venice in a unique posi-
tion to start the third quarter.
Ben Shipps would be kicking
off from the Pirate 30-yard
line. An offsides call on Port
put the kickoff at the 25.
Shipps bounced a good-look-
ing onsides kick. The Indians
didn't recover, but Port cov-
ered at the 5.
The bad field position
would come back to haunt
the Pirates on Friday the 13th.
Port moved the ball out to
the 25, but a fumble on a flea
flicker put the ball back at the
2. Facing fourth down, the
Pirates had to punt. Al
Mitchell broke through and
blocked the boot. Kyle Keefe
fell on the ball in the end
zone.
Suddenly it was 21-0.
.The game was far from
over, however.
Port Charlotte came back
and put together its best drive
of the night. The Indians
appeared to have a handle on
the situation with the Pirates
facing a fourth and 10 from
the 20. Port resorted to some
trickery, as quarterback
McLafferty handed off to
receiver Randy Bianchi, who
threw back to McLafferty for
an 18-yard gain to the 2.
Senior back Chris Fira, who
was once an Indian as an
underclassman, ran in for the
score to cut it to 21-7 with 5:04
left in the third quarter.
There was still plenty of
time for a Port Charlotte
comeback.
The Venice defense held on
the next two Pirate posses-
sions. One stop came on a
interception by Sean Howell
his second on the night.
Port also tried a long pass on a
fake punt.
Venice finally got some
more breathing room, cour-
tesy of reliable kicker Shipps,
who has done everything
asked of him, duis season. He
banged home a 32-yard field
goal with 5:49 lelt to give the
Indians a 24-7 pad.
"I wish I had more oppor-
tunities this year, but I just
want to make the mosr of
every chance," Shipps said. "It
feels awesome to get a win."
The defense once again
shut down the shotgun sling-
ing McLafferty. Following a
fourth down. sack, the offense
took over at the Pirate 25.
Hunek tacked on the final TD
.on a keeper to the right from
13 yards out with 1:33
remaining.
"We put all three aspects
together," Mitchell said.
"Before, we would have two
guys doing their job and two
other guys not doing their job.
You have to have everybody
doing their job. This boosts
our confidence a lot."

Port Charlotte licks its wounds


BY DUGAN ARNETT
STAFF WRITER


At least there's still
Charlotte.
That seemed to be the sen-
timent following Port
Charlotte's sloppy 31-7 loss to
previously winless Venice
Friday at the Pirates Cove,
The Pirates racked up 17
penalties for 140 yards Friday,
falling behind 14-0 in the first
half, and never recovered as
Venice used a combination of
running backs to wear Port
Charlotte down.
Paul Costanzo rushed for
70 yards and a touchdown on
16 carries and Al Mitchell
added 34 yards on 12 carries
to pave the way for what was
an otherwise anemic offen-
sive performance.
In what can only be classi-
fied as a sloppy game (and
was, by coach Joe Woodruff),
the Pirates managed only 33
rushing yards and turned the
ball over four times. The
team's bright spot came when


senior running back Chris
Fira, who missed the past six
weeks with an ankle injury,
scored on a three-yard tou-
chown run in the third quar-
ter.
"You saw it out there, the
mental breakdowns," Port
Charlotte coach Joe Woodruff
said after the game. "We did-
n't play with composure. We
did a lot of things well, and
nothing great. And that's what
killed us."
Quarterback Kevin
McLafferty completed only 13
of 38 passes for 98 yards and
four interceptions in leading
a Pirates offense that never
found its rhythm.
"We did some things OK,
and we didn't do anything
really well," McLafferty said.
"That's pretty much it right
there."
Still, in the aftermath of
one of its toughest defeats of
the season, the members of
the Pirates who walked off the
field winless on Homecoming
could take solace in one


thing: They've still got
Charlotte.
Translation: With a single
win against its biggest rival, a
season that is quickly going
south can still be saved.
"I don't want to say it," said
McLafferty, "but if we beat
Charlotte, it's an OK season. I
hate to say that because we're
supposed to get into districts,
that was our goal, but if we
beat Charlotte next week, it's
an OK year."
With Friday's loss, Port
Charlotte likely ended any
hope of advancing to this fall's
district playoffs.

Mooney fends off Berkeley to stay unbeaten


STAFF REPORT


Games like this aren't sup-
posed to be this tough at
least on paper.
It had all the makings of a
mismatch unbeaten
Cardinal Mooney against
winless Berkeley Prep.
Plus, Friday night's game
was in Mooney's yard -
John Heath Field at Austin
Smithers Stadium.
Berkley battled Mooney
tough for a half before the
Cougars pulled .away behind
two third quarter touch-
downs.
The Cougars improved
their over record to 8-0 and
their Class 2B District 6 mark
to 2-0 with a 34-20 victory
over Berkeley (0-6, 0-2).
The "Boys of Venice" who
play for the Cougars Clay-
ton Hazeltine, Cody Cole,
Austin Peterson, Spencer
Garrison and Bart Swistak
contributed to the victory.
Hazeltine kick-started the
Cougars by returning the
opening kickoff 80 yards to
paydirt. Hazeltine sped up
the middle, then cut left
toward the sidelines, picked
up a block, and turned up
field.
Berkeley tied it on a 20-
yard interception return by
Colin Boss.
Mooney went up again in
the see-saw affair on a 13-
yard touchdown run by
Hunter Ovens. Ovens ended

Hurricanes clinch district title by hammering Charlotte


BY ROB SHORE
STAFF WRITER

In a game that was likely to
determine the District 5A-11
title, it was the kind of start
Charlotte was dreaming of.
A 53-yard touchdown run
on the third play of the game.
A dynamic quarterback effi-
ciently zipping the ball
around early. A blocked pun t
returned for a touchdown in a
backbreaker of a play.
The problem was, it was
Manatee making all the plays
on this Friday night.
I Shawn Williams rushed for
101 yards and a touchdown
on 15 carries, and the
Hurricanes dominated the
Tarpons early, rolling to a 34-7
victory at Tarpons Stadium.
The victory ensured that
more than just a homecom-
ing king would be crowned at


Tarpons Stadium. When

sealed Manatee's second
straight district title.

Charlotte coach Binky
Waldrop said. "We lost to a
bigger, stronger, faster team
tonight. We didn't come out
and match their intensity."
The Tarpons, who have
played solid defensive foot-
ball most of the season, fell
behind early with an unchar-
acteristic lapse, with Williams
rambling for a 53-yard touch-,
down run on the game's third
play.
Manatee showed they
could also move the ball
through the air behind fresh-
man quarterback Brion
Carnes, scoring later in the
quarter when he darted a 21-
yard pass to Edgard Theliar
for a 13-0 lead:
The Tarpons doggedly
moved the ball on a series of
runs by quarterback Matt
Kautz he ran for 24 yards
on five carries on the Tarpons'


first drive, before taking a
sack and being intercepted.
Charlotte suffered three
turnovers in the first half,
which were turned into two
touchdowns.
They also allowed a
blocked punt for the second
consecutive game, as Austen
Jensen came around the right
side to block a punt by
Andrew Dugan, returning ,it
21 yards for a score and a 19-0'
lead.
Manatee showed a bit of
flair as well, scoring with 22
seconds left before halftime
on a halfback option, with
Ace Sanders hooking up with
Theliar to give the Hurricanes
a 34-0 lead.

Landfill tours are back
Free public tours of
Sarasota County's landfill and
its hazardous waste and recy-
cling plants were so popular
earlier this year that 22 addi-
tional tours have been sched-
uled in October, November
and December.
To accommodate demand,
tours will be offered on
Monday and Tuesday from
8:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m. on the
following dates:
Oct. 16, 17, 23, 24, 30 and
31
Nov. 6,7, 13, 14,20,21,27
and 28
Dec. 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 and 19
"People enjoy these tours
so. much that we have already
begun getting calls for reser-
vations, and we haven't even
started publicizing them yet,"
said Program Specialist Marie
Chancellor.
Each tour will visit the fol-


lowing three locations for 45
minutes each:
Sarasota County's House-
hold Chemical Collection
Center, 8750 Bee Ridge Road,
Sarasota
Sarasota County's Re-
source Recovery Systems,
4700 Middle Ave., Sarasota
Sarasota County's Central

Workshops on Sarasota
County Landfill
Sarasota County has
announced two public work-
shops to discuss a proposed
landfill access change that
would allow entry to the land-
fill from Clark Road.
Sarasota County landfill
management and a land
management consultant will
be on hand to discuss a
change to current regulations
that allow traffics routine
access to the landfill only
from Knights Trail Road. The
request is to remove this limi-
tation and allow access from
both Knights Trail Road from
the south and Clark Road
from the north.
The workshops will
address the same material.
They will be held at 6:30 p.m.
at the following locations:
Monday, Oct. 23, Laurel
Nokomis School, 1900 East
Laurel Road, Nokomis
Monday, Oct. 30, Twin
Lakes Park, 6700 Clark Road,
Sarasota
According to Landfill
Manager Frank -Coggins,
"Waste haulers may currently
enter the landfill from Clark
Road only in case of emer-
gency. We're concerned that
the landfill's single entrance
could be blocked by damage
from a hurricane or even a
catastrophic vehicle accident
on 1-75."
Coggins added that the
change would also save fuel
and time for waste haulers
traveling from the north.
For more information


about either workshop or the
proposed change in landfill
access, call the Sarasota
County Call Center at 861-
5000 and ask for Solid Waste
Customer Service.

Candidates exchange views at forum


VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 15A


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFFWRITER

Doug Holder and David
Shapiro, candidates for the
District 70 seat in the Florida
House, disagreed Thursday
r on the question of whether
Florida residents should be
able to take their homestead
exemption
with them if
they move
V somewhere
,else in th
state.
'- Speaking
at a forum
hosted by the
Manasota
League of Holder
Cities at the
Sarasota City Hall, the two
diverged in their views on the
looming issue of portability
and other proposed changes
to the Save Our Homes Act.
Sarasota City Commis-
sioner Lou Ann Palmer, who
served as moderator, asked
: how the candidates propose
to ease the
burden of ris-
Sing property

, homesteaded
property,
rental units,
H and commer-
cial proper-
ties created
Shapiro by the act.
Holder, the
3 Republican running for the
open seat that represents the
South Sarasota County
region, said, "Until counties
adjust millage rates, I think
the tax rates for nonhome-
steaded properties are just
where they are."
But Shapiro, the Demo-
crat, said, "I think the first
thing we should be able to
do is make them portable. I
think that if the state can
* handle the loss in revenue
by doubling the homestead
1 exettptijh: let's gotb it." "'
Palmer then asked how the
candidates might solve the
problems of homeowner and
ii windstorm insurance avail-
ability.
Shapiro replied, "Increase
the Florida Catastrophic
Fund. In order to fund it we'll
have to pay a little bit more to
self-insure ourselves."
Holder said, "Let's give
incentives to homeowners to
make their homes more
storm-proof. Also offer incen-
tives to the private sector of
the insurance industry by
allowing them to access the
,T state catastrophic funds."


candidates about proposed
regulations concerning coun-
ty control over land use deci-
sions.
Holder's stance: "Our cities
and counties should make
their own decisions, except in


matters where state law may
be violated."
Shapiro said, "Home rule
should be protected. Having a
mediator is a good idea."
Palmer's final question,
which centered on munici-


palities creating their own
community redevelopment
agencies and tax increment
financing districts, elicited
agreement from the two can-
didates.
Holder said, "I like the CRA

idea too, but eminent domain
issues must be considered. As
long as we're conscious of
that, it's a good program and
can work."
"It's a good idea, some-
thing to aspire to, but I'd like


to look at it more carefully,"
Shapiro said.


You can e-mail Steven J.
Smith at ssmith@sun-her-
ald.com.


Diverging views
Palmer then switched the
topic to Florida transporta-
ton issues.
Holder said, "Our buses are
barely being used. We have to
make. sure that we don't build
something we're not going to
use. As far as gas taxes, there
should be some kind of a for-
mula that the state provides
for local governments to go
by to make decisions for local
areas."
Shapiro, however, saw the
problem this way: "We can
either build more roads or
build a light rail system. Let's
think with vision and do it the
right way. Reduce our depen-
dence on foreign oil and build
something smart."
The question was then
raised abogt whether pesti-
cides and fertilizers con-
tributed to pollution and red
tide.
Shapiro saw a direct link.
"We know fertilizers and
pesticides feed the Red Tide
bloom. We also need to con-
tinue the trend of green
building," he said.
But Holder saw if different-
ly.
He said, "There are 24 dif-
ferent theories on what caus-
es it, but there is no correla-
tion to any one reason as to
why these blooms occur."
Palmer then asked the

PHOTO COURTESY SARASOTA COUNTY OFFICE OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
Venice firemedic Steve Worobel, supervising wanna-be firefighter Zachary Pequeno, 8, on the
business end of a "line," or hose during recent CERT training at the Venice Fire Academy.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


Sarasota County and the
Venice Fire Department are in
cahoots with each other to
make the county a safer
place.
The tie that binds is CERT,
or Community Emergency
Response Team.
"We have partnered with
the county Office of Emer-
gency Management and have
hosted CERT classes," Venice
Fire Chief Mike Johnson said.
"We absolutely have been
very supportive of that."
Put simply, CERT is a team
of ordinary citizens, trained to
respond to disasters prior to
the arrival of first responders
(fire, police, emergency
teams) to help locate victims
and save lives.
VFD provides facilities
Johnson said that because


of time constraints and other
administrative considera-
* tions, VFD could not teach
CERT classes. However, the
fire department did the next
best thing.
'Anne Miller (OEM's CERT
coordinator) was running the
training," Johnson said. "We
let them use our facilities at
the Venice Fire Academy."
Johnson also said VFD did
not have anybody on its staff
that was trained to teach
CERT classes.
Miller said VFD's support
was critical to the success of
the September CERT recerti-
fication classes at the Venice
Fire Academy.
"We couldn't do what we
do without them (VFD),"
,Miller said. "Venice sent over
a fire truck and men who
were there for hours."
Is there a CERT Team in
your area? Want one?

MORE INFORMATION


The CERT concept was
formed in Los Angeles in
1985.
The idea was that follow-
ing a major disaster, first
responders who provide fire
and medical' services would
not be able to meet the
demand for these services.
The conclusion was that
ordinary citizens would have
to rely on each other for help
in order to meet their immedi-
ate survival needs.

Villa e On The Isle residents




have a brush with art and music


STORY AND PHOTOS BY
JANET SANNER
GUEST WRITER


A section is cut from a braid of human hair to be used to make a brush.


Thursday mornings, at Village On The Isle, an eclec-
tic art class is in session.
Everybody is working in a different medium. Some
are sketching, some are painting and some are making
paint brushes.
Yes, I really did say "paintbrushes."
On a recent day, teacher Joe Oppecker was instruct-
ing his students in the fine art of brush making.
Using human hair, the students sewed and glued
until they had completed what is called a striper brush.
Such a brush allows artists to paint a line that ranges
from a thick to a delicate stroke. Similar brushes are
used for the Japanese art form known as Sumi-e as well
as by calligraphers in the creation of ornate lettering
projects.
Oppecker is multi-talented. He is equally adept at
music and art, equally at home with a violin bow as he
is with a paint brush. He comes by his musical ability
naturally. His father, Franz Oppecker, taught violin at
the Philadelphia Conservatory of Music. He also played
solos on WIP radio.
Oppecker came to America from Vienna in 1910,
when he was just 10 years old. The family purchased a
boarding house in Philadelphia. On the first floor, they
had a restaurant.
"You could get an entire meal for 5 cents," he said,
shaking his head in disbelief while recalling those days.
Franz Oppecker and his wife, Louise, had three chil-
dren: Evelyn, who played cello; Frank, who played
piano and violin; and Joe, who played violin.
When Joe was born, the family moved to Camden,
N.J. There Joe became interested in the Walt Whitman
House.
"I bought one of my first violins from the curator,
Mrs. Davis," Joe said. "I fixed it up and called it my Walt
Whitman violin."
He said he used to play "The Hobgoblin Dance" by
Huber for Mrs. Davis.
"She loved that song," he said.
Seeing some of Joe's artwork, one of Franz
Oppecker's violin students, Mr. Radberg, took an inter-
est in the youngster. Radberg was an architect of some
renown. He belonged to a rather famous group called
the Graphic Sketch Club.
Joe had shown a strong artistic ability since his ear-
liest childhood years when he first dabbled with
crayons. Radberg began taking Joe along to the exclu-
sive club.
"I was only 14 or 15 at the time," Joe said. "I was the
youngest one there."
A few years later, in 1946, Joe was drafted into the
United States Army. He was 18. The war was really over,
at last, and Joe spent two years in Germany "mopping
up" under Gen. Harmon.
After his discharge, Joe went to the Philadelphia
College of Art.
"I had a 1937 Chevrolet," he said. "I'd drive the kids


around to go sketching. They would pile their stuff in
and off we'd go. Sometimes, we'd go down by the river
to sketch. Being outside allows people to feel freer in
their sketching. Other times we'd go to museums.
"'At this time. was actually a surrealist. Surrealism is
what you dream. It's the essence of creativity. I wish I
did more of that. I can appreciate all the different art
forms."
He said that he used to draw in the margin of his
books.
"These became cartoons," he said. "And, I once
argued with one of my teachers that Norman Rockwell
would long be remembered because he reaches the
heartstrings of the people."
Joe graduated with a bachelor of arts degree. On
graduation, he took a job at the Ankora State Hospital
in New Jersey. There, he taught painting as an occupa-
tional therapy. His next job was as an art teacher in
Atlantic City. He was a teacher consultant in special
education for two years. He then taught at the Atlantic
City High School, staying there for 23 years, until his
retirement at the age of 55. He earned a master's degree
in 1970.
While teaching art, Joe continued to play the violin.
He played .with the New Jersey Philharmonic
Symphony, performing under the direction of Maestro
Garribidian. They were having auditions.
"I got there early," Joe said. "I took out my violin and
began playing the 'Hungarian Rhapsody.'"
Garribidian came along, heard him and said: "You're
.the concert master."
Readers who know the Jersey shore may know of the
Music Pier in Ocean City. Joe used to play there with the
Ocean City Orchestra, which was under the direction of
Conductor Clarence Fuhrman.
Just as Joe was retiring, he met Terry Drummond.
After a five-year courtship, they married and moved to
Chesapeake City. It was 1984. There he began repairing
violins and bows at the Zapf Music Store, an icon in the
music world. It is still in existence in Philadelphia.
The couple eventually found their way to Village On
The Isle in Venice, where they continue to reside and
where he continues to teach art.
"I'm not finished with painting," he said. "Art should
be ongoing. It's an emotional expression. If a person
can't use their imagination, that's terrible. Art frees you
to develop your imagination."
He also continues to play the violin, performing
concerts with his Hopf violin, an instrument that he
restored.
"I've never played a Hopf that the tone wasn't good,"
he said, caressing his beloved violin.
Through his various forms of art, his violin, his
music composition, Oppecker has traveled many
roads much to the delight of those who happened to
be in his path.
"I've wandered into a lot of things," he said.


Fine thread or string is used to tie the human hair to the stick used as the
brush handle.


Joe Oppecker applies glue to the brush he is making.


The completed brush is ready to be used for striping.

What is the




value of a park?
tt Sp i


"Save Oscar Scherer State
Park," "Protect the Scrub
Jays," "Run for the Scherer
Delight," these are some of
the battle cries for people
wanting to protect and pre-
serve the park. From the staff
and volunteers, to the numer-
ous civic and environmental
organizations in our commu-
nity, Oscar Scherer State Park
represents the true value of
nature to a healthy lifestyle.
Humans need the recreation
and the relaxation offered in
the "wild places," where we
can refresh ourselves away
from the hectic pace of the
modem day world.
In our.programs and spe-
cial events we have tried to
enlighten visitors about the
plight of the Scrubby
Flatwoods Habitat, and how
we do all we can to ensure its
existence for the future.
In,.past columns,. ,we have
explored many facets a-
bout.the park 'and the natu-
ral processes, our park's
"Friends," and its inhabitants;
next, I would like to describe
another way the park benefits
'the community.


There are numerous issues
in the area that will affect the
integrity of the park. We have
one of the last viable tracts of
Scrub Flatwoods left and
work to protect it from devel-
opment, pollution, and more
roads; we must have public
support and be. able to
explain why it is so important.
Our resource management
and interpretation programs
are designed for a positive
outcome relative to scrub
habitat, by giving folks the
reasons behind our actions
such as prescribed burning,
exotic plant removal and
other land management
activities. However, what
about those people not inter-
ested in the value of a plant or
bird? How do you convince
those folks the park still has
value to be protected?
The State of Florida.
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection, Division of
Recreation and Parks, has
recently released its Eco-
nomic Impact Assessment for
the last fiscal year. This may
not sound too exciting, but
did you know Oscar Scherer
State Park attracted about
105,850 visitors for the period
July 1, 2005 to June 30; 2006?
According to standard fig-
ures and statewide statistics,
74 percent of those visitors
are nonlocal,.that is, tourists.
That means people. have
come from other places
'to visit the park. These visit-
ors spent an estimated
$4,284,596.00 in the area;
add to that the park spent
$732.746.00 .(including
salaries, benefits, projects,
etc.) and you get a


total direct economic impact
on the area of $5,017,342.
That is a lot of financial sup-
port for the Venice area. In
fact, according to the annual
report, we (the park) helped
generate 100.3 jobs in the
community.
These are facts to share
when someone who may not
really appreciate "nature"


wants to know why we have a
park. They can be high-pow-
ered "ammunition" when
conversing with those who
decide what happens outside
the park. It should be a rally-
ing cry for the local Chambers
of Commerce, Tourist Info-
rmation Centers and anyone
that has a financial stake in
this area. Because when the
need to defend the park aris-
es, whether it is on a natural
resource or economic basis,
all of us can stand together.
We love this community;
we work here and we can
enjoy the benefits of being
out in a nature setting. Many
other people must make a
determined effort to get here,
to enjoy a bit of the Real
Florida. Let's work together to
keep the allure of Oscar


Scherer State Park healthy
and vibrant for the wildlife
and the lifeblood of the com-
munity.
Park staff and I our
"Friends" want to leI you
know that Oscar Scherei State
Park will be celebrating its
50th anniversary this year.
Please join us at the park and
see what Mrs. Elsa .Scherer
Burroughs left for you 50
years ago, and what we are
doing now to preserve it for
the next 50 years. Th e next
50th Event is a "Hike Dscar
Scherer" Jan. 13. Come out
and hike all the trails in one
day! Check out our Web site
for more details.,
Florida's state park system
is one of the largest ii the
country with 159 parks span-
ning more than 723,000! acres


and 100 miles of sandy white
beach. Florida State Parks
were awarded the National
Recreation and Parks As-
sociation's Gold Medal Award,

While acute
pain usually comes on
suddenly and can be traced to,
'! an exact source, chronic pain
may persist in the absence of
past injury or evidence of body
damage. Chronic pain is also resistant
to most medical treatments. Thus,
many Americans with chronic pain turn
to pain-relievers to mask symptoms. Not
only does this approach fail to address
the underlying causess, recent studies
have shown that even such common over-
the-counter drugs as acetaminophen carry
a very real potential to cause serious side
effects with prolonged use. In light of this
"analgesic dilemma," people with chronic
pain owe it to themselves to investigate
the potential for chiropractic to relieve
their pain. Chiropractic offers the option
of managing pain without drugs.


P.S. Aspirin can cause gastrointestinal
upset, and some prescription pain
medications are addictive.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING










By Vicki Connell, "
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I have started to avoid
social situation because I
just don't understand most
of. the conversation. My
wife likes to attend these
functions, but lately I don't
want to go. Why?
A. :There are two common
approaches poIle s"em to
adopt 6nce hearing loss has
become part of their lives:
you can try to cover up the
fact or you can tell others
that you don't hear well.
Your reaction will be most
influenced by how you feel
about yourself and how
other people close to you
react to your problem.
Because, hearing loss is
gradual over several years,
you've probably told
yourself, "People just need
to speak up and I'd hear
fine," or "other people
mumble." But what is really
happening is that other
people are doing the work
of helping you hear by
repeating, speaking louder
and listening to TV louder.
When other people can't
compensate for your
hearing loss, you avoid the
situation by saying "Go
head without me." The
longer you avoid seeking
professional help, the more
you may fall into other
avoidance behaviors. Soon
the hearing loss will rule
your life and you will find
yourself missing the things
that mean the most -
friends, family gatherings,
religious services etc. These
are the vital pleasures of life
which help us feel nurtured
and keep us intellectually
stimulated. You must hold
onto these pleasures and not
allow your hearing loss to
defeat you. Call the
Audiologists at Woodier
Hearing and Balance
Center, Inc. at (941)492-4327
or (941)206-2136 for a
complete hearing and lifestyle
assessment. There are many
techniques a hearing impaired
person can use to make their
lives more manageable and
which will allow them to
participate fully in many social
situations.

This column is going to the dogs


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
COLUMNIST

Here recently, my friend
Endrus was walking past the
Venice Paw Park and there
were all these dogs, yapping
at each other. Now, I don't
know a cotton pickin' thing
about dogs, 'but her friend
who was with her pointed out
the various dogs they saw.
There was a Boxer, German
Shepherd (called Alsatian in
England I wonder why), a
Doxie, Schnauzer, Poodle and
many "Heinz" varieties. And
for those of you who do not
know about dog parks, Paw
Park is a fenced dog-play yard
that leads to the only beach
area in the county where dogs
are allowed (per Internet
write up on Brohard Beach.)
Back to the dogs. They
wondered if the dogs were
having an "organ recital" -
you know, telling each other
about their liver, bowels and
about their last visit to the vet.
Sounds familiar, doesn't it? I
dunno!
I was only familiar with our
two farm dogs and when I
learned they had dog psychia-
trists, cardiologists and bone
specialists for your animal, I
was flabbergasted.
So I look aghast when I


A divisic:n ol Sun Coasi Media Group in':
: puolsrier of irhe Sun Herald rilesapeia


hear what happens to city
dogs. For instance, Endrus
told me they once had to take
their Schnauzer to the vet for
a problem and he suggested
they give the dog a colostomy.
They busted out laughing.
This is the same dog that
had pulled a "Marmaduke"
with his food bowl. When he
found it empty, he would go
into a tizzy, pick it up in his
mouth and sling it across the
room. Needless to say, they
did not opt for the colostomy.
My friends Gladys and
Harry had a poodle that they
took with them everywhere
they went. But if left home
alone, he showed his petulant
displeasure by tearing up
everything he could find
while they were gone.
I know you all have hun-
dreds of dog stories you can
tell me. I like the one my side-
kick told me about a Lhasa
Apso that would sit up
straight on his back haunches
for hours, paws out in a
pleading mode and wouldn't
get down until he was told to.
Meanwhile, back in the
dog park. This is how a hypo-
thetical dog conversation
goes: "Woof! Woof!" said Fido.
"So tell me, Sara, how did
your visit with the doctor go?"
"Wooooof!" says she, "he said
I was, overweight and had to
lose a couple of pounds -
now come on. I don't eat any-
more than you guys."
"Sure," said Duke the
boxer, with a big woof, "my
doctor wants me to exercise
more instead of watching so
much television." "Woof!
Woof! Woof!" says Maxi. "And
how much overweight is your
doctor? They always seem to


know what is best for us but
not for themselves."
Fido barked in. "Woof!
Woof! Myvet wanted me to go
to a psychiatrist because I
bark at strange times, but my
owner like my strangeness."
A towering Rhodesian
Ridgeback came into the
park, saying "Hey, guys and
dolls, I hear a gal named
Virginia is writing a column
about us." "She is," said the
pretty little Chihuahua, "does
she have a dog?" "No," said
the Ridgeback, "but I heard
she's pretty stupid anyway.
She's probably one of those
silly cat lovers. I heard her
doctor suggested she write
about us. In fact, that's his
poodle over in the corner
talking to that strange looking
mutt. That guy doesn't even
have a pedigree!"
Pretty soon a Bulldog
walked in, obviously ignoring
the Ridgeback, even though
he was a nice guy. The Chi-
huahua, a friendly little lady,
sidled up to the bulldog. "I
heard my mistress say that
dogs are the seventh-most
intelligent being after man.
But what I don't understand is
how pigs can be listed at sizth,
after man but before us.
Everybody know how smart
we are. Well, at least there are
none of those stupid cats on
the list."

Sleepless in Seattle? Go to Pike Place Market and get energized


SUN PHOTOS BY SUSAN CAIRO
Beautiful flowers are sold every day in the the Pike Place Market in Seattle.


Jeff Kilpatrick is a fish salesmen at Pike Place Fish Market. He displays a large salmon that is sold
and sometimes thrown around for fun at the market.


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

Feel like a little hustle and
bustle on your vacation --
why not go to the market -.
Pike Place Market in Seattle?
Pike Place Market started
out as a city-sponsored street
sale where farmers could sell
their produce directly to
homemakers. Today, rich
with restaurants and crafts-
men the market still has the,
flavor of an old-time fruit and
flower market.
August 2007 will mark its
100th anniversary. Market
vendors are counting down
to the centennial celebration.
SFishmongers who -toss
salmon high abomveetheads
of spectators are just one of
the daily draws. The "fish
guys" sing, dance and threat-
en passer-bys with live lob-
sters and cray fish. It's all in
fun and part of the daily free
entertainment.
A gaping fish head sits on


an ice-covered display of
fresh-caught shrimp.
Children squeal in fright
when its mouth moves and
the teeth seem to dart out
toward the crowd. Neither a
live fish nor a ghost, the fish
has been equipped with a
thin rope concealed in its
mouth. When the string is
pulled, the fish appears to be
alive.
There's more
Crafters make their own
wares, performers entertain
tourists and restaurant own-
ers bake and serve up their
finest fare daily. This is not
your trendy, slick mall the
market has real people selling
their own wares, just as thev
have been doing for almost
100 years. It covers nine acres,
and is home to 60 restaurants
and take-out spots.
Food and drink and
flowers
Pike Place Market is also
home to the world's first


Starbucks, which is located
across the street from the
main market building.
Lunch at the market can
range from donuts on the run
from Belles Buns to
Maximillien's, a newly
opened roof-top French
bistro with h view of Elliot
Bay. A visit to Athenian lunch
and seafood will find walls
full of pictures of Tom Hanks
and Carl Reiner as they sat on
the grille's bar stools filming
"Sleepless in Seattle."
Flowers sold in the stalls
are grown by the very mer-
chants who sell in the market.
Many are grown right in
Washington's fertile Sno-
qualimie- Valley. Starting
wits spring- tulps and- da f
f6dils, then continue into thie
fall with lush displays of
mums. Fragrant bouquets
range in price from $5
for a small table display to $15
for a magnificent arrange-
ment. Flowers are brought
in daily by growers. Bargain


'hunters can get arrange-
ments for weddings or to
decorate restaurants in the
Seattle area. No one leaves
without a bunch in their
arms. Produce is also freshly
grown by local farmers
and the market gives them
a place to sell what they
grow.
Market Spice was opened
in 1911. It is one of the
market's oldest shops. A visit
will have you tasting its
market spice tea, a blend of
cinnamon-orange that is
sold all over the world.
At the World tea exposition in
Las Vegas it was voted
as the number one tea for
taste. The market's staff is
educated in the a t blends
of tea and will recommend
those with anti-oxidants
and have both caffeine
,and caffeine free teas.
Starbucks coffee sellers
provide similar advice and
expertise about their prod-
ucts. 1


Seattle's Pigs found their
way to Venice


Bronze pig paw prints lead
visitors to the corner entrance
to the market and to a large
bronze piggy bank. Created
in 1986, Rachel the bronze
big, has collected more than
$100,000 for Seattle charities
since being placed at the
market. Created by Georgia
Gerber and modeled after
her neighbor's late pig, it
sparked Seattle's display of
more than 200 decorated
pigs, and, more recently, the
Venice Art Center's Pigs in
Paradise exhibit.
Rachel is there day in and
day out. even' l at.a nightt
when the market itself is
quiet.
The market is open year
round, seven days a week,
closing only on Thanksgiving,
Christmas Day and New
Year's Day. While some
vendors are ready to open by


8 a.m., the market is open
Monday through Saturday,
from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. On
Sunday, it is open from 11
a.m.-5 p.m. The DownUnder
stores are open seven days a
week from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Its
parking garage is adjacent to
the market 1531 Western Ave.
The Market garage at 1531
Western Avenue is just down
the hill from Victor Steinbeck
Park and offers affordable
parking rates. Ask for validat-
ed parking from merchants as
you shop. Parking is free from
some restaurants after 5 p.m.
and there is free parking
along the streets when you
can find it.
Allow enough time to wan-
der. past .all tdie stals,, visit all
the floors, drink some 'coffee
or tea and havelunch or din-
ner at one of the choice
restaurants there.

Nokomis woman volunteered in Crete this summer An


PHOTO COURTESY OF GLOBAL VOLUNTEERS
Illene Steiner leads a geography lesson for students at an English language summer camp on
the island of Crete.


STAFF REPORT

Like thousands of North
Americans, Ilene Steiner of
Nokomis, traveled to Crete
this summer.
Unlike the typical "sun and
scooter" island experience,
hers was a journey of learning
and service.
For two weeks in August,
this adventurous retiree
joined a Global Volunteers
team that taught English at a
summer camp in the com-
munity of Gazi, located along
the northern coast of Crete
near the city of Iraklion.
(Global Volunteers is a non-
profit organization that offers
short-term service projects in
20 countries.)


'The summer camp was
attended by youngsters from
several local villages who
rarely have an opportunity to
practice their oral language
skills, let alone meet North
Americans. They participated
in informal "classes" that
often took the form of
lessons, crafts, song sessions
and recreational games.
"I worked with the primary
grades and I met some of the
parents when they came to
the school with their children.
We had good conversations
about how their children were
doing," Steiner said.
The experience reminded
her of the universality of the
human spirit.
"All people care about their


children and want the best for
them in all cultures," she
said. "When the children
came up to the front of the
class to show me the papers
they had worked on, they did


it with the same openness as
children in the United States.
All children are the same,
regardless of where they are.
They want your praise and
they become more open and
friendly because of it," she
continued.
Steiner also enjoyed her
interactions with the adults of
Gazi and shares a special
moment.
"The parents of one child
invited us to have lunch in
their home and the conversa-
tion flowed as if we had
known each other forever."
During free time, the vol-
unteers had the opportunity
to explore ancient Minoan
ruins at Knossos and
Phaestos (dating back to
2000-1400 B.C.), historical
museums, Crete's breathtak-
ing gorges and the coastal
ports of Chania and Matala.
Global Volunteers sends
teams of volunteers to work
on community projects in 20
countries year-round. No
special skills are necessary -
only a curiosity about other
cultures and a desire to be of
service.

many things we have to mul-

the wrong side! The legs, the
feet, the shifting. It's madden-

they eat comfortably. I've
never understood why they
don't let me sit on the outside
with my left side to the aisle.
Offices are never set up for
left-handed people. All writ-
ing space is always set to the
right hand side of computers.
Mice, scissors, paper cutters,
spiral notebooks-the list of
office supplies that make my
life miserable could go on for
days. Sure, you can get certain
items that are manufactured
for left-handed people. But
I'll be darned if I'm gonna ask
the supply lady to find me a
left-handed spiral for $5.95 a
ream and have her give me
that look again.
The most evil of right-:
handed contraptions are
those darned, pens,, with
chains-,the ones that look
like a pen on death row-that
are most regularly seen in

traption, but he or she better


hope I never find out who it
was.
For right-handers, the
chain gracefully moves with
them as the write. For left-
handers, it gets stuck under
your hand and tangled up
with the pen, .making it
almost impossible to write
legibly. When I write with one
of those get-ups, I know that
there are toddlers out there
who write with crayons that
come out clearer.
But, we left-handers have
to admit, we do have certain
advantages to those right-
handed people who think the
world is set up just for them.
When I was in Tae Kwon
Do, my instructors insisted
that I, :fight left-handed. I
thought, that would. make
things awkward, but it turned
out that it worked better to
my advantage. No one could
figure out how to fight-me.
Punches came at them. from

Another place that I have
used my left-handed powers
to my advantage was in bil-
liards. It is always funny to
watch my opponent's face
when I switch up the cue after
he thought the shot impossi-

Being left-handed does
have its advantages, I'll admit.
After all, we are the only ones
in our right minds, you know.


But, as an advocate for the
left-handed cause, I'd Itke to
take this opportunity to have

Pet scams play on owners' love for their animals


STAFF REPORT ,

Most pet owners consider
their pets friend part of the
family. Such a bond can make
for some scary moments if a
pet decides to wander off. In,
such unfortunate circum-
stances, manypet owners will
do anything it takes and pay
whatever price to get their pet
back home safe and sound,,
That willingness, in turn,
makes pet owners highly sus-
ceptible to scams. Unfortu-
nately, it's hard to tell people
not to think with their hearts
when they're worrying about
a lost pet. Here are some
common pet scams that tar-
get distraught individuals.
* Found Pet ads. The age of
technology has opened the
door for scam artists in many
arenas, and the lost pet arena
is no exception. On losing, a
pet, many decide to head to
the Internet or their local
newspaper and search the


"Found Pet" ads. This can be a
great way to find a lost pet,
but it can also be a way to get
scammed. Acting carefully is
the best advice in these situa-
tions.
I, These scams typically fol-
low the same pattern. A pet
owner who recently lost a pet
will find an ad saying a dog
was recently found in a cer-
tain area. Pet owners will then
respond, and someone will
then say they found the pet
on the highway, but due to
the nature of their work (truck
driver, salesman, even a vaca-
tioner) or travel they cannot
return the pet without first
being reimbursed for the
transportation fees. Often,
these scammers will even ask
the pet owner to describe the
pet and then tell them it is, in
fact, the right animal. Excited
pet owners will then agree to
wire funds, only the scammer
does not actually have the
dog. The scammer will then

tible to pet scams involving theft.


keep the money and the pet
owner will be left still looking
for the pet and out a lot of
money as well.
The best way to approach
a situation like this is to
remain rational. Anyone who
found the pet and was willing
to take it in and post an ad for
it will no doubt be willing to
return the animal in person.
* Lost Pet ads. Many scam-
mers use "Lost Pet" ads as a
source of information and to
find their next victim. Anyone
posting a "Lost Pet" ad, be it
online, on a local community
bulletin board, or in the
newspaper should be careful
what they include in such
postings. Giving away all per-
tinent information, such as
where and when the dog was
lost, can make it difficult to
determine if the person who
has "found" your pet is really
a scammer.
* Pet Theft. A common scam,
particularly with dogs, is to


steal a dog and then wait for a
reward to be offered. Pure-
breds, which can cost upward
of thousands of dollars, are
usually the targets of such
scams, as con artists know
they can demand higher re-
wards.
A way around this is to
avoid leaving any dog out-
doors unattended. All it takes
is a few minutes for a thief to
run off with a dog. While the
thief may attempt to acquire
a reward, an expensive dog
can also be sold to other pri-
vate individuals, or even
worse, to dog fighting rings to
use as bait dogs or medical
testing companies.
High-priced reptiles and
birds are also targets of
thieves, who may purposeful-
ly break into a home to steal
these pets and sell them to
others who are willing to fork
over big bucks.

ONE LAST WORD


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

Two designerdecorated
models have opened in the
carriage home neighborhood
of Tarpon Harbor II at River-
wood Golf & Country Club.
The neighborhood occupies
a promontory position along
the Myakka River. Currently a
selection of ready-to-move-in
residences are available with
first or second floor locations
and river or preserve views.
THE OSPREY
The Osprey, a second-floor
residence, includes two


n Tarpon Harbor II at Riverwood


bedrooms, two baths, a media
room and a one-car garage. It
is a great room design with a
separate area for the formal
dining room. A large media
room includes a storage closet
and has the option of being a
third bedroom. The home
encompasses 2,040 square
feet of living space and 2,534
total square feet.
The color palette in the
Osprey model consists of
'gold, raspberry and neutral
shades of beige. The colors are
used judiciously such as in the
canopy of the tray ceiling over


the formal dining room and
the floor-length drapes and
valances. In the master
bedroom color is controlled
with the bed linens, the fabric
covered headboard and the
abundant decorative pillows.
Furniture lines are clean and
contemporary mixed with
some traditional pieces.
The morning room of the
Osprey is' sun-streaked
through white plantation
shutters, which reflect off a
clear glass oval dining able
surrounded by cane chairs.
The adjacent kitchen is a


very workable blend of
traditional raised-panel wood
cabinetry and sleek
contemporary stainless steel
appliances.
While both models show-
case numerous upgrades and
design options, standard
features in both plans include
raised-panel kitchen cabinets,
solid surface countertops and
a white double-bowl sink with
a Moen one-touch faucet. A
fullWhirlpo6l appliance
package is included and
features a dishwasher,
garbage disposal, refrigerator


with icemaker, microwave and
a self-cleaning range with
glass cooktop.

vanities and sinks, raised-
panel cabinets, and a Moen
chrome fixture package. The
master bath will include a
separate bathtub and ceramic
tiled shower.

MIXED-USE
DEVELOPMENTS
Atlantic Station
Feel uncomfortable in the
big city? Then try "urban light."


The past decade has seen
the rise of "live-work-play"
communities, real-estate
parlance for mixed-use
developments that combine
offices, housing and retail
space. Such communities
often bridge city and suburban
living; that means there's
usually a convenient parking
garage where you can keep
your car, and the streetscapes
are a little less gritty than in
many downtown.


One of the largest such
developments is Atlantic
Station, a 138-acre redevelop-
ment of the former Atlantic
Steel Mill site, just north of
downtown Atlanta. The mill,
founded as Atlanta Steel Hoop
Co. in 1901, operated until
1998.
Today, Atlantic Station has
about 2,500 residential units;
about one million square feet
of shops, restaurants and
movie theaters; almost 865,000


square feet of offices finished
or under construction; 101
hotel rooms; and 11 acres of
parks, including a small lake.
Since part of the attraction is
the walk to work, Atlantic
Station has largely been
marketed to a younger crowd,
with condo sign-up parties at
trendy bars, beach volleyball
tournaments, clothing chains
targeting twentysomethings,
and a martini-lounge scene'at
the development's Twelve


Hotel & Residences. But
retirees are moving in, as well.
(In fact, so many retirees have
moved in or expressed interest,
Atlantic Station's developer
now is considering building an
"active adult" community at
the site that would be geared
to older people, according to
an Atlantic Station spokes-
woman.)
Tom and Suzanne McDer-
mott, ages 77 and 71, relocated
to a two-bedroom condo in


Atlantic Station from the
Atlanta suburb of Roswell after
Dr. McDermott retired from
dental practice several years
ago. They were drawn by both
their past and their future:
Mrs. McDermott grew up
about a half-mile from the new
development in a neighbor-
hood of bungalows, but the
couple also "wanted the
convenience of city living," Dr.

FROM PAGE 6:
McDermott says.
They walk for exercise
around the lake, stroll to
restaurants for dinner, and
take a shuttle bus to the nearby
Woodruff Arts Center (for
plays), the High Museum (for
art exhibits) and Atlanta's rail
system (for transportation to
the airport). Dr. McDermott
also started volunteering at the
new Georgia Aquarium, a fiye-
minute drive, and can walk tp
the Georgia Institute of
Technology, where his son has
season tickets for basketball
and football games.
The McDermotts say they
aren't homesick for the
suburbs yet. One big reason:
They also have a family cabin
in Cashiers, a mountain town
in western North Carolina,
where they occasionally
escape the summer heat. "I'm
not sure if we could live in this
place full time if we didn't have
it," Dr. McDermott concedes.

HOBBY FARMS

Oklahoma and Florida
At the other extreme from
city living are so-called lifestyle
farms farms run mainly for
pleasure, rather than as a
primary livelihood.
"There's this yearning to get
back to a simpler life, to play in
the dirt, to know a little more
about where your food comes
from," says Carol Ekarius, who
ran a commercial farm with
her husband in Minnesota for
a decade before moving to
Colorado to do smaller-scale
livestock farming and write
about it in articles and a book
called "Hobby Farm." "The
same kind of people who like
to go to a farmer's market and
buy organic food like to get
ifito hobby farming," she says.
Sue Gray is a horticulturalist
in the Tulsa County office of
the Oklahoma Cooperative
Extension Service. She was
fielding so many questions
from inexperienced people
interested in farming that she
started a class several years
ago called "Green Acres" to
offer help. Most of her students
are "in their early 50s, planning


for retirement, and want to
fulfill a dream they couldn't
before due to the mortgage,
children and college educa-
tions," she says. Her role often
is to stop them from biting off
more than they can chew.
"People come in and say, 'I
need 20 acres of land, and I'm
going to grow 10 acres of
vegetables.' I say, 'Do you know
what's involved in growing 10
acres of vegetables?' You
generally need one person for
every acre."
But people exploring
farming as a second career
often bring their own strengths
to the venture. 'A lot of people
are retiring in their mid-50s,
have a lot of energy and bring
a lot of business skills to
farming," Ms. Gray says. "I'm
seeing a lot of people with a
different view of marketing*
that is unique."
One of her star pupils, Pam
Von Rhee, a 52-year-old native
of Massapequa Park, N.Y., now
lives on a 29-acre spread she
and her husband bought four
years ago in Coweta, Okla. He"'.'
still works full time as a ',
geologist, but she has tackled'
farming full time, planting 150
blackberry bushes two years
ago that yielded 170 pounds of
fruit last year, much of which
she turned into jam and pie
fillings that sold out at local
markets.
Ms. Von Rhee.notes that her
blackberries aren't certified as
organic ("you have to know
what was processed on the
land five to seven years before
planting"), but she grows her
crop without using chemical
products and does the weed-.
ing and harvesting herself.
"It's amazing I learned
how to do irrigation," Ms. Von
Rhee says. "It's all a learning
process, and it's something you
love."
Some developers see farms
as simply places to play in the
country. This fall, St. Joe Co., a
Jacksonville, Fla., real-estate
development company that
owns more than 850,000 acres
primarily in Northwest Florida,
is rolling out WhiteFence
Farms-Red Hills, the compa-
ny's first farm development,

middle of Tallahassee.
St. Joe calls it "new ruralism."
Instead of homes arranged
around a golf course, the plans
call for several groups of as
many as nine "farmsteads" (61
in all) to ring orchards and
fields tended by an on-staff
farmer, says Kevin Fox, St. Joe's
senior vice president of
development. The plots
themselves would be relatively
small three to 10 acres each,
at a cost of $250,000 to
$750,000 and the clusters
are to be connected by tractor
trails.
Residents "can farm if they
wait to," Mr. Fox says. "In all
honesty, most people won't. I
expect some people will build
a barn or stable and put horses
in it or buy a tractor." They can
hire help through the commu-
nity's on-staff farmer if their
ambition overwhelms their
ability.

CO-HOUSING

Colorado
As the generation that
created the commune craze
heads into retirement, its
members are beginning to
build "co-housing" develop-
ments a concept borrowed
from Denmark in which


residents have their own
private townhouses or condos
but share a central "common
house." Nearly 200 co-housing
developments have been
started in the United States
since 1991. Now, at least two
such developments specifically
targeted to older people have
opened their doors, in South-
western Virginia and Northern
California. And a third is under
way in Colorado that could
become the model for "elder
co-housing" around the
country.
Silver Sage Village, in
Boulder, Colo., now under
construction, plans to have a
meditation room on the main
floor of its common house
where acupuncturists, mas-
sage therapists and other
healers co work. The com-
mon houie also will have a
craft roor, sitting room and
media rodi n- a luxury some
multigene national communi-
ties forgo because of parents'
concerns a out children
watching television unsuper-
vised. The development sits
next door to a multigenera-
tional co-housing community
with which it already has close
ties.
