Downtown merchants conduct


parking-space survey


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

,Whoever wins the race for
Venice City Council Seat 3 will
have at least age in common
with a significant portion of
his constituency.
John Simmonds, 83 and
seeking a second term, is
opposed by Ernie Zavodnyik,
68, making his first bid for a
council seat.
Simmonds has been a full-
time Venice resident for 11
years but has owned property
here for 29 years. A native of
Bradenton, he was a frequent
visitor to the area and main-
tained a second home here to
which he regularly commut-
ed by private plane from
Winter Haven, where he
served four terms as mayor
and 11 years on the city com-
mission.


Simmonds served on
council by appointment in
2000 and was elected in 2003.
He also served on the city's
charter review committee,
airport advisory board and
police pension board, and
has been a council liaison to
several others, as well as a
number of state committees
and task forces.
A retired' Air Force lieu-:
tenant colonel, Simmonds
has a bachelor's degree from
Sacramento State University.
His business experience
includes owning and operat-
ing a high-end furniture and
interior design company;
serving as director of school
plant planning and construc-
tion for Dade County schools;
and being associate director
of the first federally funded
community mental health
center in the United States.


He is a member of the,
Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club';
and Venice Aviation Squad-`
ron Inc., and is a past presi-
dent of the Aloha Condo-:
minium Association.
Simmonds said he wants
to limit growth but is con-
cerned about the downside
impact on the economy. He is
confident the city will reach a
joint planning' agreement
with Sarasota County that will
address most growth con-
cerns.
He said the current city
council is the best he's ever
served on and gives City
Manager Marty Black, "triple
A. He's phenomenal."
He said that much of the
city's development approvals
are reactive, but. questioned
how they could be otherwise

Downtown merchants are
taking action to alleviate
parking congestion down-
town by encouraging their
employees to park in off-site
areas.
Last week merchants insti-
tuted a pledge program. Signs
in store windows advise
shoppers "we pledge our
employees won't take a park-
ing spot from a customer who
shops in a downtown store."
The city has designated
three areas as alternative lots
for employee parking during
the peak season parking.
Those locations are the First
Baptist Church, 312W. Miami
Ave.; Epiphany Cathedral,
350 Tampa Ave.; and the
Venice Little Theatre, 140 W.
Tampa Ave., .all to be used
during daytime hours.
Survey
Venice MainStreet wants


to determine if there is ade-
quate parking for customers
and employees by surveying
merchants.
The parking survey will ask
business owners and land-
lords for the number of
employees or tenants that use
on-street parking each day,
per shift, both in and out of
season.
It also asks about the num-
ber:. of designated parking
spaces available, days of the
week they are open and a lit-
tle bit about where employees
and tenants actually park
each day.
"There have been com-
plaints about parking, as long
as there has been a down-
town," said Tom Opsut,
MainStreet program director.
"The survey will give us exact
figures."
William Vanderstine, own-
er of Bella Luna and a mem-
ber of the MainStreet parking
survey committee, thinks
that's an important piece of
the parking puzzle.


"For us to talk intelligently
to the city about parking
issues, we need all of this.
information," he said.
"Sometimes the city doesn't
see things the way the mer-
chants do. When we have our
facts together, we might be
able to educate them a bit."
Roseann Brown, owner of
Venice Stationers, said no one
has ever done a comprehen-
sive survey before.
"Everyone knows the
number of parking spaces,
but do we know what options
the employees have if the sur-
vey determines even the off-
site parking isn't adequate? "
she said.
Brown cited Epiphany
Cathedral Church as anr
example.
"They have masses on
Saturday at 3:30 p.m., and
they need enough spaces for
their own parishioners," she
said.
"The city is the expert,

Green Butterfly celebrates 25 years


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER


The Green Butterfly con-
signment shop, which bene-
fits the Loveland Center, is
celebrating its 25th year in
business.
Loveland Center is a place
for adults with developmen-
tal disabilities to receive train-
ing in life skills.
"We try to help them live
their lives to the fullest," said
Juanita Elliott, shop manager.
Loveland students will be
on hand for the birthday cele-
bration Friday, Oct. 27, from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the store.
The public is invited to stop
to meet students and for a
piece of birthday cake.

tomers who have patronized'

the store over the years,"
Elliott said.
First volunteer
The idea for the Green
Butterfly shop came from
Frank Burkholder, a retired
businessman.
"He thought that students
at The Loveland Center
would benefit by working in
the shop," said Claire
Zacharias, a volunteer. "He
wanted this to be a place
where they could test their
skills on how to work with the
public."
Zacharias, 80-plus years
young, worked at a school for
handicapped students up
north. She used the things
she learned there to organize
the shop. The Butterfly's first
volunteer, Zacharias still


works in the shop.
"Another volunteer drives
me here, because I am now
legally blind," she said.
The shop has a staff of
more than 52 volunteers.
"Our first donations came
from the volunteers' own
closets," Zacharias said.
"Venice was a different
town then," she said, "and the
items sold were things that
people used to start up a
vacation home such as dishes
and pots and pans."
Upscale
Today the Green Butterfly
has changed its inventory to
reflect the growing number of
new residents with upscale
tastes.

ITE KNOWN FAMOUS FLOjIDIANS
BY JOE "FASTHORSE" HARRILL




















DON PEDRO MENENDEZ DE AVILES is considered the
father of St. Augustine. From 1513 until 1563, Spain
launched several failed attempts to settle Florida. In
August 1565, Menendez arrived off the Florida coast and
with a few hundred Spanish soldiers and settlers fortified
the Timucuan Indian village of Seloy. He named the vil-
lage St. Augustine. After destroying a recently established
French garrison on the St. John's River, he began building
a permanent Spanish colony by expanding the town and
exploring the land, making St. Augustine the oldest
European settlement in North America.

High school students to vote in mock election


STAFFREPORT

Hundreds of Sarasota
County high school students
will have an opportunity to
experience firsthand the
power of democracy when
they take part in a mock elec-
tion on their campuses the
week of Oct. 23-27.
Students at Booker High
School, Cyesis, North Port High
School, Pine View School,


Riverview High School, Sara-
sota High School and Venice
High School will be able to vote
for candidates for U.S. Senate,
U.S. House of Representatives
and governor.
. They will also answer three
ballot questions: 1) Should
passing the FCAT be a
requirement for graduation?
2) If Sarasota were to build a
dedicated teen center, would
you use it? 3) Do you think the


state of Florida should extend
the times that unaccompa-
nied 16- and 17-year-old dri-
vers must be off the streets?
Students will cast their bal-
lots on the iVotronic touch-
screen voting machines pro-
vided by Supervisor of
Elections Kathy Dent. Results
will be released with the
General Election results after
7 p.m. Nov. 7.
"Statistics show that peo-


ple who have access to their
jurisdiction's voting system
prior to an election are twice
as likely to go to the polls on
Election Day," Dent said. "It is
our hope that the mock elec-
tions will help to increase
turnout among 18- to 20-
year-olds and engage our
youth more actively in the
electoral process."

A new acquaintance told
Tropical Bob his BMW died
following summer's last down-
pour in late September.
He said his car engine sus-
tained fatal water ingestion
after he drove through a flood-
ed section of street.
The man, who works at a
car dealership, said he thinks
water splashed under his
hood with sufficient velocity
and volume to get into the
engine through an opening
like the air cleaner.
The resultant damage to
the engine was total.

Woodley: The (engineering) doctor is in


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER

Venice City Engineer
Nancy Woodley traveled the
world as a child, but she's now
in the place she considers
home.
"I can honestly say that I
have every intention of stay-
ing here for the rest of my life,"
she said.
Her father was a lieutenant
colonel in the. army trans-
portation corps, and was
comptroller of shipments of
both goods and personnel
from one base to another.
"By the time I reached high
school," said Woodley, "I had
lived in- Paris (France),
Hamburg (Germany), Li-
vorno (Italy), Yokohama
(Japan), New Orleans, Seattle
and San Francisco. I was able
to finish my senior year of
high school in San Francisco. I
still love to travel and see new
places."
Sarasota County was also
on the itinerary among those
more exotic locales.
"I first came to this area in
1967," she said, "because my
parents had retired to
Longboat Key. That's when I
worked for a few months for
the city of Sarasota planning
department, but I also had a
chance to get acquainted with
the little town of Venice dur-
ing that time."
"Of course, a lot has
changed since then," she said.
"But for me, change has
always been a good, positive
thing. This place was so quiet
back then, I was glad to see
how Venice had developed
into such a vibrant communi-
ty with so many amenities
and unique features. .

'Retread'
Woodley's job with
Sarasota County was one of
her first jobs after getting a
degree in mathematics from
the University of Massa-
chusetts. She worked on a
special land-use survey pro-
ject as a planning analyst.
Using her math skills,
Woodley did population and
economic projections for the
comprehensive plan.
She took on. a similar pro-
ject as a planner in Kentucky,
then moved. to a regional
planning agency in Tus-
caloosa, Ala.
"That was a very different
type of planning operation,"
said Woodley. "Instead of
dense and urban, it was
mostly rural, open space.
Their largest planned land
use was for roadways, and
most of the communities did
not have their own planning
or zoning staff."
She served as principal
planner for five years, then as
a project director for six years,
supervising an engineering
staff and several engineering
consultants in developing an
EPA-funded area-wide waste-
water treatment manage-
ment plan.
It was that new experience
with engineering profession-
als that led her back to school.
"When I had been in
school before," she said, "girls
just didn't take engineering
courses. But this experience
really inspired me to get into
that profession. I became
what they called a 'retread' by
attending a special engineer-


ing program through the
University of Alabama, com-
pleting my advanced degrees
and changing careers."
She earned master's and
doctoral degrees .from the
University of Alabama and
later ran her own engineering
consulting firm and was an
adjunct civil engineering pro-
fessor at the university for five
years.
Natural flow
With that background,
Woodley came to Venice as
assistant city engineer in
1999, served as interim direc-
tor of growth management
(which at the time. included
the planning, building and
zoning departments) for six
months in 2000 and then
became city engineer in 2001.
Effective Oct. 1, the city of
Venice gave Woodley the
added responsibility of gener-
al manager of development
services, which means she
now oversees the operations
and staffs of engineering and
stormwater, planning and
zoning, and building and
code enforcement.
"There is a natural flow of
administrative functions and
paperwork between these
three closely related opera-
tions," she said. "One of my
tasks will be to look harder at
our methods of doing busi-
ness, particularly in the area
of customer relations, and try
to simplify and expedite pro-
cedures.
"Wherever we can, we will
relieve the workload on staff
as well as on the customers,

cation, improve communica-

Her goal is to combine
development service func-
tions where feasible in the
administrative areas of opera-
tion.
New family
Woodley plans to take her
time getting to know the staff
members of each department
and their various duties.
"My goal, wherever possi-
ble," said Woodley, "is to posi-
tion people to do what they
are good at and enjoy doing.
I'll be taking slow, deliberate
steps with lots of opportunity
for input from everyone
involved.
"I have found that,
whether with, employees or
customers, most issues can
be resolved through clear
communication. All three of
these departments already
have tremendous leadership
and resources. I believe it will
only take a' few minor
changes to enhance produc-
tivity and job satisfaction.
"The key to that success,"
she added, "will be the degree
to which they all work as a
team. In fact, I already told
them in one of our first group
meetings, 'Look around -
these are your new family
members!'"

'No Engine Brakes' signs cause confusion


SUN PHOTOS BY JEFF TAVARES, JTAVARES@VENICEGONDOLIER.COM
This tractor trailer passes a "NO ENGINE BRAKES" on Jacaranda Boulevard just north of E. Venice
Avenue. Sometimes referred to by the slang term Jakee brake;' an engine brake is a mechanism
on large trucks that changes the timing of exhaust valves to slow the vehicle. This method pro-


duces a repetitive popping noise

BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

Venice has four new traffic
signs, and you won't find
them in any Florida Depart-
ment of Motor Vehicle manu-
al.
"No Engine Brakes" signs
were posted about two
months ago on either side of
Jacaranda Boulevard, near I-
75. Similar signs also were
placed on River Road and on
U.S. 41.
The question is, what do
they mean?


An officer with the Sara-
sota County Sheriffs office,
who asked not to be identi-
fied, said he has to continual-
ly ask the "engine guy" in the
department what the signs
mean.
"I just talked to someone
who has been here for 20
years, and he has never heard
of it either," the deputy said.
Sgt. Tim Goodman of the
Sarasota County Department
of Transportation suggested a
call to a Peterbilt Truck dealer.
"They can explain it bet-
ter," he said.


It seems the signs are there
to address noise issues rather
than traffic issues.
"Sometimes they (engine
brakes) are called compres-
sion brakes or jake brakes,"
said Randy Rush, a truck
technician at the Peterbuilt
Truck Center in Tampa.
"When the driver flips a
switch, it makes the motor
slow down internally. That
action causes a lot of engine
combustion noise," he said.
"The sound resembles a
'bark.'"
Rush said cities and states


have come up with the signs
to stop truckers from slam-
ming on the brakes.
Unenforceable
The signs may be there
because of complaints from
one person in the neighbor-
hood.
"Truckers take off from the
McDonalds on Commercial
Avenue and try to speed
through the light," said Dr.
Arno Loeffler, a resident at
Hidden Lakes Club, off
Jacaranda Boulevard South of
1-75. "When they can't make
the light, they hit, the brakes."
Loeffler lives on a street
that borders Jacaranda
Boulevard. He said his neigh-
bor works from home and the
noise was getting to him.
"The signs were put up as a
warning," said Susan Walsh,
'Sarasota County public works
communications manager.
"Obviously residents have'
been bothered by the loud
noise of engine brakes."
Walsh said it's unusual to
put up this type of signs, and
they are in the Venice area on
a trial basis.
"As yet, they are not
enforceable," she said.
"We have no ordinance
that covers the noise concern
from engine brakes," Walsh
said. "Hopefully, the signs will
help."
If the problem persists,
Walsh said, the next step is to
go before the board of county
commissioners on how to
proceed.

in a free market economy. He
estimated that 70 percent of
development inquiries never
get to city council and that the
ones that do take a year or
more to work their way
through the approval process.
He favors a general height
limit of four to five stories,
preferably with parking
underneath.
He said he is on the fence
about the marina proposed
for the airport: He thinks it's
needed but is worried about
whether it's feasible near the
Circus Bridge.
He favors annexing Cas-
persen Beach: "Then we
could develop it the way we
want to develop it."
Zavodnyik has been a city
resident for about three
years, moving here from
Illinois. A graduate of Notre
Dame Law School, his legal
career included serving as
assistant corporation coun-
sel for the city of Chicago;
time in private practice; 23
years on the staff of the
American Bar Association;
and serving as community
service officer for the city of
Olympia Fields, Ill.
Locally he has been
involved with the Venice Area
Audubon Society, Venice
Neighborhoods Coalition and
the Notre Dame Club of
Greater Sarasota. He serves
on the parish council of
Epiphany Cathedral.
Zavodnyik said Venice
should put a halt to major
development until current


. growth is under control. He
said the city has been annex-
ing land too fast, but added
that annexation can make
sense if all infrastructure
costs are covered.
Any joint planning agree-
ment with the county should
stress what the two govern-
merits have in common, he
said.
He gives council a "C,"
faulting the members for
allowing too much growth
and not explaining their deci-
sions. He said it's time for
some fresh faces on the
board.
He rates Black a "B+/A-,"
calling him very dedicated
but saying he's not sure what
Black's vision is.
Zavodnyik said that the
Waterfront towers should be
the last ones built on the
island, where he thinks the
maximum height should be
three to four stories. Buildings
off the island could be a bit
taller, but "not much more
than four or five stories," he
said.
He opposes a marina at the
airport.
"It's not clear to me why
the city would want to go in
that direction," he said.
He thinks the city should
annex Caspersen Beach, and
would push to be much more
active on environmental mat-
ters, especially red tide.
He favors mandatory recy-
cling, a study of the city's
housing needs and term lim-
its on city boards.

Venice Avenue has a two-hour limit on parking. Centennial
Park has no restrictions until January, when it will change to a
four-hour limit.


whether the solution is get-
ting a garage for employee
parking or having the city
designate extra spaces let
them decide when they see
the numbers," Brown said.
Venice City Council previ-
ously studied the feasibility of
a parking garage downtown.
It was determined that the
cost would be almost
$400,000 and yield only, 51
new spaces.
"Nothing more has been
discussed recently regarding
building a parking garage,"
said Pam Johnson, public
information officer for the
city of Venice. "We are aware
of some of the problems
downtown, and we look for-
ward to what the merchants'
study shows."
To help ensure adequate
parking for shoppers, the
Venice Police Department is
gearing up for its role for the
coming season.
"We will be strictly enforc-
ing parking violations down-


town," said Capt. Dave
Dunaway of the Venice Police
Department.
"Normally we estimate the
peak season to be Jan. 1
through Easter, and we are
instituting four-hour parking
limits for Centennial Park in
early January," he said.

"We upgraded the quality
of items sold to reflect the
expensive tastes of new resi-
dents," Elliott said.
The shop now sells both
donated and consignment
items, specializing in china,
fine linens, good quality fur-
niture, books and paintings.
"We recently sold a paint-
ing for $6.000," Ellion said. "A
gendeman brought the paint-
ing in and had no idea of its
value. He thought it was
worth about $150."
Part of the volunteers' ser-
vice is to research the value of
items. A volunteer librarian
uses the shop's extensive
library of books about an-
tiques to research the value of
the antiques brought into the
shop.
"We want to be able to get
the most money for both the
person bringing in the con-
signment item and for The
Loveland Center," Elliott said.
The consignment com-
mission is 55 percent for the
owner with 45 percent going
to The Loveland Center. After
30 days, items that haven't
sold are reduced by 25 per-
cent:
"Many bargain shoppers
keep coming back to check
the prices," Elliott said.


The Green Butterfly is
always in need of volunteers.
Susan Graham is the shop's
newest volunteer.
"It is a very rewarding
place because you are able to
see the fruits of your labors,
quickly as the items are sold,"
she said.
The Green Butterfly is
open Monday through
Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and
Sunday from noon to 3 p.m.

unteering, call 485-6223.

Simmonds gets council nod on experience


Sne of the great things about Venice is
related-to one of its problems.
We are blessed with hundreds of peo-
ple who moved here to enjoy retirement,
part of which is giving their time to make their
new home an even better place to live. For
some that includes running for city council.
That's the silver lining. The cloud is that
those hundreds are just a portion of the thou-
sands who have moved here over the last few
years, .all of them needing city services and
putting a strain on overburdened city roads.
The two candidates for Venice City
Council Seat 3 are retirees who have differing
philosophies on what to do about all the peo-
ple who want to join them here.
John Simmonds, the incumbent, is com-
pleting his first elected term; he also served
by appointment in 2000. In addition, he has
been a member of the charter review com-
mittee, the airport advisory board and the
police pension board.
A native of Bradenton and a city property
owner for 29 years, he has seen Venice under-


go tremendous changes in his 83 years.
ErnieZavodnyik, 68, is making his first runfor
council, though he was an unsuccessful candi-
date for Florida House District 70 earlier this year.
Zavodnyik has lived in the city for about
three years. He has been active as a volunteer
but has not served on any city boards.
He has seen quite a bit of change in his
time here, too.
A lot of issues are facing the city over the
short and long term: the airport business
park and marina, the environment, height
limits. But the big one the one that drives
or drags most of the others along is
growth.
Simmonds recognizes that growth can't be
allowed to go uncontrolled, but he is sme-
what more comfortable with, the pace at
which it has occurred than we are.
He said he's optimistic the joint planning
agreement being negotiated between the city
and the county will bring some clarity to
what many perceive as reactive rather than
planned growth, especially in "North Venice."


He does not see the need for stronger lim-
itations, however. He said he is worried about
the side effects they might have and correctly
pointed out, "Growth is all of us." We've cer-
tainly never heard a prospective new resident
suggest the door should be shut in
front of him.
Zavodnyik thinks it's time for sterner mea-
sures, even to the extent of halting major new
development until current projects can be
assimilated. That sounds like the "M" word
- moratorium, which we think would be
going too far. But he thinks the city needs a
master plan so that all growth within its
boundaries is integrated. That's not the same
as a comprehensive plan, and it's something
we seem to be missing.
We think Zavodnyik is also right ,that
council often seems not to take a very close
look at new projects. Simmonds said he can't
recall voting against an annexation, though
he attributed that to city staff's ability to
derail bad projects and beat acceptable ones
into approvable shape.


True to some extent, no doubt, but we
think a higher level of council scrutiny is war-
ranted. City Attorney Bob Anderson is confi-
dent the city can say "No" without repercus-
sions as long as it articulates a good reason.
On other topics Simmonds and Zavodnyik
aren't very far apart: They think the city and
county zoning districts should line up better;
would cap building heights generally at
about four stories; and support annexing
Caspersen Beach.
Our views on growth are somewhere
between theirs, and we think both are capa-
ble of serving the city well. If we were making
a decision purely of growth issues, we'd lean
to Zavodnyik.
But Simmonds gets our endorsement
because of his much greater familiarity with
city matters. Zavodnyik was in the dark on
too many things a city council candidate
ought to know, and he was long on issues but
short on solutions:
We recommend John Simmonds for
Venice City Council Seat 3.


A rare kind of politician


BOB VEDDER
FIlIRU^


rf .nil, iLl.'I ,I*nIh ,,.,,, ,1 I

Jeb Bush is so different
from his brother he really
has a likable personality.
Last weekend Jeb
addressed a meeting of pub-
lishers from around the
Southeast. He exhibited the
traits that have made him
such a popular governor,
traits we rarely see in politi-
cians.
That doesn't mean I have
agreed with all his positions,
but it is refreshing to have
someone who means what he
says and does what he says he
is going to do while making
you understand why he did it.
He has been quite open,
invites communication and
has not been afraid to boldly
move the state on some big
issues.
One area that he has han-
dled exceptionally well was
the disasters created by the
hurricanes. Even his oppo-
nents have complimented
him on the job he has done.
The preparation prior to hur-
ricanes has been good, as well
as his follow-up, being on site
not just once but a lot of
times.
I know he has been in
Charlotte County often. He
has responded to needs and
got things done.
He talked about the strides
made in education, about
stopping social promotion by
not letting kids go on beyond
third grade. The percentage of
kids not passing the FCAT has
decreased greatly as empha-
sis has been placed on getting
all students' proficiency to a
higher level.
He was proud of the fact
there were improvements in
graduation rate, from 64 per-
cent to 72 percent. He feels
that standardized testing has
advanced the learning level of
the students and made
administrators accountable.
It has been controversial
but it has worked. It is not
where it needs to be, but it's a
good start.
He talked about the newest
change, which is to require
that a student declare a
major, with hundreds to
chose from. All of this is part
of trying to get kids thinking
of the future, get them


engaged. This all an attempt
to further improve the gradu-
ation rates.
It was refreshing to hear a
politician talk about how
.some things were not as good
as he wanted.
He said the state had an
audit taken of the education
system and there were many
areas, that needed improve-
ment. The one he felt was
most important and needed
the most attention was stan-
dards. ;
While the students are
improving to the Florida stan-
dard, that standard is just not
high enough. We need to raise
the bar.
He commented that our
science measures weren't
specific enough and the math
and social studies weren't
demanding enough.
His humor and relaxed
manner are in such contrast
to his brother.
One of the questions he
took from the audience was
from a person who asked him
* about his sister's book, which
pointed out he had not intro-
duced his wife to his mother
until the day before the wed-
ding. Jeb commented in a
refreshing way that he has
made a lot of mistakes along
-the way, but that was one of
the biggest bonehead things
he had ever done.
He didn't talk about his use
of the line-item veto but I
think he has really shown how
good that can be at removing'
pork or waste from govern-
ment. He has eliminated
hundreds of millions of pet
projects from the budget each
year. He has made a lot of leg-
islators mad by cutting things,
but also gained respect by
doing it
He doesn't want to leave
office without doing more to
ease the pain of insurance
costs. He is planning a special
session next month if Lt. Gov.
Toni Jennings has finished
her work going around the
state getting thoughts on how
to improve the system.
They don't want to have a
session if it doesn't look like
something will get accom-
plished. He is shooting for the
second week of November.
I think we all have a politi-
cian or two that we really have
liked. It might be John
Kennedy, maybe Ronald
Reagan. On a more statewide
level maybe it would be Bob
Graham. For me, Jeb Bush is
in this category.

Bumper sticker: If money
is the root of all evil, why do
churches beg for it?

Obituaries are a hobby for Americans


Editor:
The No. 1 hobby in this country isn't fishing or playing golf,
it's genealogy, and the obituaries in this newspaper are an
insult to everyone who has the misfortune to die here and
receive a "fill in the blank" obituary.
Apparently the main accomplishment in their life was that
they moved to Venice. The subheading for donations and the
advertisement of the funeral home takes up more space than
any achievements and life facts of the dearly departed.
If the husband predeceased the wife he is never mentioned.
This gives the impression that the woman is survived by a
bunch of bastard children. If the woman has a brother men-
tioned, perhaps his last name is her maiden name unless, of
course, he was a stepbrother. Then there is the puzzle of why
her sons all have different last names.
This newspaper claims it isn't responsible for what is print-
ed in the obituaries that it is the funeral homes that do the
actual writing.
Every funeral home receives a copy of the death certificate.
Every death certificate lists the father and mother of the
deceased with the maiden name of the mother in addition to
the deceased's place and date of birth. Only the date and place
of birth is put into the obituaries in this newspaper.
A genealogist searchingtfor family to complete a family tree
cannot find out where an ancestor died or is buried, or even if
he is he correct ancestor without the name of the parents and
the maiden name of the woman. Fifty years from now your
ancestors will not be able to link you to their family tree.
Thankyou, Jim Shea of Englewood, for bringing this out into
the open. Let's hear from more readers about their thoughts on
the obituaries that appear in this newspaper.
Elaine Schwartz
Venice
EDITOR'S NOTE: Our free obituaries are intended to provide notice of
deaths and information about funeral services and memorial donations.
Including all available biographital information for each person would
take up considerably more room, especially during the season, forcing us
to join the many newspaper around the country that charge for all obitu-
aries.


Dysfunctional families
are hurting society
Editor:
People are paranoid. It
goes from fear of flying, going
out of your house, staying in


your house, afraid to drive,
afraid to go to school, and it
goes on and on.
People are in this constant
fear about this, fear about
that, instead of being aware.
As they say, it often takes


awhile for art to imitate life,
but if the reality of real life cir-
cumstances creates paranoid
people it is terribly unhealthy.
Perhaps some people have
had a sheltered life, which is
unhealthy as they will be ill
equipped to deal with the real
world when they grow up, if
they ever do grow up.
Adult children from dys-
functional families have been
a crisis in this nation, as a sick
family creates a sick society.
Unless there is separation
from family when you are an
adult, the unfortunate cycle
will continue to manifest
itself.
Most sexual predators
were victimized, themselves,
and it usually starts at a very
early age. Even if you never
print this, I can only hope that
your staff somehow utilize
your media to educate fami-
lies on how the cycle is bro-
ken. I see so much of it within
the community. It is hard to
just stand by and allow it to
continue as it enters into the
fourth generation.
Thanks for your great cov-
erage in th community. I
believe one person can make
a difference in a lot of people's
live

Act now or get Pelosi
Editor:
As a life-long registered
Republican, 'thi; Foley thing
just makes me sick.
However, I do not want to
see the Democrats regain
control of either body of


Congress. In my opinion,
their 'stand on the war on ter-
ror is very weak. The far left
wing of the party is very pow-
erful and is very well funded
and behind all these antiwar
protests;
But in the wake of the
Foley scandal, I do believe
that House Speaker Hastert
should resign. The House
Republicans are bullheaded
and don't want to shake up an
already shaky house leader-
ship.
They should do the right
thing and let House Majority
Leader John Boehner take
over. At least this will 'show
new leadership in a very tight
mid-term election year.
Or let the voters do it for
them. Come January, when
the 110th Congress begins,
welcome Speaker Nancy
Pelosi.
God help us.

With conservativeslike
these, who needs liberals?
Editor:
Recently a columnist re-
ferred to "the conservative
group" in Washington who
are running things. Either he
was ignoring the facts or he
was trying to distort conserv-
ative principles.
Many people, at all levels,
call themselves conservatives,
but act and vote like liberals.
In this time of more spending,
more waste, more taxes, more
wars, more government,

You can't have it both ways


Goosey gander. If the school board doesn't like what Tallahassee tells them to do, then why
should the local schools be happy with what the Landings is trying to tell them? If it's good for
one, its good for the other. If local control is not what the school board is promoting with
Tallahhssee, then they shouldn't be promoting it at the school levels.


Taxed. Reading Mary Kay
Ruppel's column remarking
that Vern Buchanan has such
creative tax tricks that he's
outsmarted the IRS and does-
n't have to pay as much taxes
as everyone else, I'm wonder-
ing if she's .thought about the
fact that because he's not pay-
ing some of his taxes, that
we're all paying more to sup-
port his creative tax tricks.
.Bravo. To the person who
wrote, "Stop airing dirty laun-
dry": I enjoy the important
information provided by the
Venice Gondolier Sun's South
County Record. This person
needs to take note that not
everyone owns. a computer to
gain access to this useful
information. I would further
more like to tip my hat of the
brave photo, that was pub-
lished on the front page of the
Gondolier Sun's issue regard-
ing the death of our beautiful
sea life due to red tide. Other
papers hide this information
inside the paper, not on the
front page. Since we are not
allowed to make comments
regardinglindividual political
candidates, I have not seen
any candidates of any race
address this serious problem
of red tide that will eventually
kill all of us too. I went snokel-
ing during the start of red tide
and was only aware of a lot of
seaweed. There was no men-
tion of red tide in the paper at
that time. I ended up with
bloody sores in each of my
nostils that had to be treated
by a doctor. This might be a
good topic to, add to the South
County Record -, dirty air,
from the red tide Nu'meou. -
people I speak to, young and


old alike, are having respira-
tory problems, vertigo, severe
sinus problems, etc. They
should write about the health
issues caused by the red tide.
By the way, I am from a pub-
lishing background and I
think your paper is great. The
photos and clarity that you
have acquired in the past few
years has very much
improved, and I appreciate it.
Bravo to the Gondolier Sun.
Upside down? I had to
make a comment on the
award-winning picture of a
ringtail by Larry Allen, Fresh
Air columnist. Surely it should
be positioned vertically
instead of horizontally. It's a
fascinating little animal and
you should reprint its picture
right-side up. At least I think
it's wrong-side up.
Puzzling. Why can't the TV

one Sudoku instead of three

ed to the upcoming election?
Of course they are. It's hap-
penedinthe past and it's hap-

How come the mayor and

Please, someone clean up our

Disturbed. I find it deeply
disturbing that my insurance
rates have increased and my
insurance company has told
me that they will be canceling

Congress should investigate
the insurance industry and
the insurance lobby as to why

As Venice and North Port
begin joint planning.negotia-
tions with Sarasota County,
it's clear that representatives
participating actively at the
meetings are committed to a
successful outcome.
Each agency has begun
responses to the first draft of
terms as prepared by the
mutually selected facilitator.
It's also clear that there is a
general perception in the
community that most, if not
all, the growth and develop-
ment since 2000 has occurred
primarily in Venice and North
Port. We offer the following
information to help clarify
that perception so people
understand why Venice is
concerned about impacts of
county approvals upon
municipal facilities and ser-
vices.
The 2000 United States
census set a baseline of the
actual population within the
unincorporated areas under
the development approval
authority of the board of
county commissioners and
set similar population counts
within the areas under city
jurisdiction.
In 2000, the total Sarasota
County population of all indi-
%iduals living in cities and in
the unincorporatedi/county
was just about 326,000 indi-
viduals. Approximately
228,000 about 70 percent
lived in areas where devel-
opment decisions were made
by ,the board of county comr
-"hiksig~.ers. The population of
Venice in 2000 was 17,864, or


approximately 5.5 percent of
the total county population.
As reported by the Florida
Bureau of Economic and
Business Research, from 2000
to 2006 the total population of
all areas in Sarasota County
has grown by an additional
53,000 people, The board of
county, commissioners ap-
proved development that has
accounted for more than
22,000 of these new individu-
als. Venice in the same period
approved development ac-
commodating 3,700 new resi-
dents.
The Florida Housing Data
Clearinghouse projects an
additional 66,000 new homes
will be needed by 2025 in
Sarasota County (approxi-
mately another 135,000 peo-
ple). As we move forward, it is
important to engage the com-
munity in a discussion as. to
first if, and then where and
under what design parame-
ters, it is appropriate to
accommodate this growth.
Venice is committed to a
joint planning agreement that

CRIME SCENE COLUMNIST'


Identity theft is not going
to go away anytime soon.
There are new technolo-
gies being used to steal from
potential victims almost daily.
This column will address
some of newer ones you may
not have heard about.
I received an e-mail from
former N.YED. Lt. John Kelly.
In it he states, "Just got my
MasterCard bill and spotted a
charge of $91.25 by a compa-
ny named Global-Smo-
king.net, based in the
Ukraine. The charge was by
Internet purchase while I was
vacationing in Alaska. A com-
puter search revealed several
references to the Web site and
that it was listed as a hoax
company."


Thoroughly check your
credit card statements and
investigate any items that you
do not recognize or appear
suspicious.
Earlier this month my wife,
Kathy, received an e-mail
from Fairwinds Credit Union
that read:
"Dear Fairwinds CU cus-
tomer:
. "This e-mail confirms that
you have paid LWP Elec-,
tronics $2099.50 using your
Fairwinds CU Debit Card.
This credit card transaction
will appear on your bill as

for a Sony PC notebook:
Total price with shipping
$2119.50."
"If you have not autho-
rized this charge, click on the
link below to cancel the pay-
ment and get a full refund."
When the link is clicked a
page appears asking for very
sensitive financial and per-
sonal information.
Kathy does not have an
account with Fairwinds
Credit Union nor has she ever
heard of them.
- 'It appears that-a4ery legit-"

ple into disclosing informa-


tion that coufd be used in

Be very .careful what you
respond to..
Medical identity theft is, on
the rise. After obtaining an
individual's personal and
financial information, scam
artists who are in need of
medical treatment but do not
have insurance assume the
victim's identity to receive the
treatments they require.
When the bill finally come
due, the con artist is long
gone and the victim is
dunned for the costs,
This type of fraud victim-
izes more than 250,000
Americans annually. AARP
says, "People 50 and older are
at the greatest risk because
.they usually have govern-
ment-issued insurance such
as Medicare or Medicaid.
Those systems are large and
automated and they usually
do not issue medical insur-
ance fraud alerts."

Public meeting on
Osprey library

Sarasota County officials
will seek opinions and ideas
from the public about the
design and construction of
the planned public library to
be located in Osprey.
The public input session
will be held from 5:30-7:30
p.m. on Monday, Oct. 23, in
the Pine View School
Auditorium, 1 Python Path,
Osprey.
Currently in the prelimi-
nary design phase, the library
will be part of the larger Bay
Street Village & Town Center
project at U.S. 41 and Bay
Street. The approximately
25,000-square-foot library
will be east of U.S. 41 and will
front on Bay Street.
The preliminary plan calls
for ground-level parking with
the library occupying the sec-
ond and third floors. The
Sarasota County Commission
has endorsed a proposal for a
"green," or landscaped, roof
on the building.
Crossgate Partners, the
developer of the commercial
portion of the Bay Street
Village & Town Center, will
have input into the final
design of the project.
County staff and the
library design team, consist-
ing of the architectural design
firms of ADP Group and


Harvard Jolly Inc., will offer a
short presentation about the
project and be available to
receive comments and
answer questions.
For more information

Girls golfers

off to 2A

State Finals

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR'

The Venice High girls golf
team will tee it up against the
best the rest of the state has to
offer at the FHSAA Class 2A
Finals this week in Port St.
Lucie.
Venice High is one of 16
schools vying for the title. The
Lady Indians earned the trip
to the east coast by winning
the Region 5 Tournament last
Monday in Bradenton.
The tournament will be
played at The Saints Golf
Course. It is a two-day event
with 18 holes played each day.
Venice golfers will tee it up
at 8 a.m. Tuesday, starting on
hole 10. The Lady Indians will
begin play at 9:30 a.m.
Wednesday on hole 1.
The girls will get a chance
to play a practice round on
Monday.
This is the second straight
year the Lady Indians have
qualified for the state finals.
Last year, they finished sev-
enth inVero Beach.
Venice is hoping to do bet-
ter this year.
"We're not going over there
to finish third or second," co-
coach Larry Sandburg said.
"We're going over there to
win."
Last year, Venice finished
87 strokes behind champion
Lake Howell. Lake Howell is
back this year to defend its
crown.
Venice returns four of five
who played last year. Casey
Kennedy was low with a 77-
80-157. That was 22nd best
opt of 88 players. Crystal
Smith was 28th best at 80-
81-161. Megan Clipse was
58th at 98-88. Katie Kennedy
was 66th at 95-101. -
The four will be joined by
senior Helene Gagliardi.
Casey Kennedy is fresh
from firing a 70 at the region-
al tournament at the Manatee
County Course.'

Lady Indians

begin title

defense

STAFF REPORT

The Venice High volleyball
team will begin its defense of
the Class 5A State,
Championship as Region 3
play begins Tuesday night at
the Teepee.
Venice (24-4) is fresh from
capturing the District 12 title
this past week at the Teepee.
The Lady Indians breezed to
three wins over district foes.
The region quarterfinal
opponent is Boca Ciega,
which fell to St. Pete-
Lakewood in the District 11
final. Match time is 7 p.m.
Venice, ranked No. 3 in 5A,
will be a heavy favorite, con-
sidering Boca Ciega only has a
record of 11-13.
The Lady Indians enjoyed a
fun weekend. Two players -
Natalie Gaudreau and Ashley
Graf were in the
Homecoming Court. The
players attended the Home-
coming Dance Saturday
night.
Coach Brian Wheatley was
off in the Bahamas celebrat-
ing the district title -Venice's
fifth in a row.
It's back to business
Monday as the team prepares
for Boca Ciega. If the Lady
Indians win that match, the
next match scheduled for
Saturday looms large. There
could be a matchup with No.
1 ranked Tampa Plant.
Actually, it would be a
rematch of last year's region


semifinal when Venice upset
Plant in a five-game thriller in
Tampa.

No playoffs this year for indians


Indians blow lead
and drop must-win
district game to
Lakewood Ranch
at Powell-Davis.
BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

There will be no post sea-
son this year for the Venice
High football team.
A lackluster second half
against Lakewood Ranch
took care of that.
The visiting Mustangs
pulled away for a 31-16 victo-
ry the Indians Friday night at
Powell-Davis Stadium.
Venice fell to 1-7 overall
and a final record of 1-3 in
Class 5A District 11. That sim-
ply isn't good enough to cut
the playoff mustard.
Meanwhile, Ranch im-
proved to 5-3 overall but more
importantly kept its playoff
hopes alive. The Mustangs
and Charlotte are each 2-1.
They will have a showdown
for the final playoff spot next
week on the Ranch.
Venice closes out its season
Nov. 3 against a very good
Naples team.
A win could have kept the
Indians in the playoff hunt.
For a while, it looked like they
might pull it off.
Venice came out strong
and jumped on the Ranch for
a 10-0 lead. Ranch came back
to go up 12-10, but the
Indians responded with a TD
with 57 seconds left before
halftime to take a 16-12 lead.
Instead of taking the lead
into the locker room, Ranch
deflated the Indians with aTD
with just 21 dcks remaining
before intermission.
Ranch outscored Venice
13-0 in the second half with
the game and the season
on the line.
The Indian offense went
dead at the worst possible
time. On four possessions
spanning the third and fourth
quarters, Venice only picked
up one first down. The
Indians went 1-2-3-punt on
two of them. Another drive
ended on an incompletion
and the other on an intercep-
tion.
Ranch simply won the bat-
tle in the trenches on both
sides in the second half.
It wasn't that way in the
beginning, as Venice looked
the hungrier of the two
squads. '
The Indian defense held
Ranch following the opening
kickoff and the offense wast-
ed no ,time striking. On the
second play from scrimmage,
Jimmy Laurie sped off for a
39-yard touchdown run. Ben
Shipps added the extra point
and it was 7-0.
The D held again, forcing a
punt to the Indian 43. Venice
worked its way down to the
Ranch 27 behind the running
of quarterback Kyle Callahan
and back Paul Costanzo.
On a fourth down call, out
went Ben Shipps, who
banged home a 43-yard field
goal with plenty to spare.
Venice was 2-for-2 on
offense and owned a 10-0
lead.
It didn't last long, as a cov-
erage breakdown on special
teams allowed Ranch back
into the contest.
The Indians kicked the ball
away to threat Marcus
McNeal at the 21-yard line.
McNeal appeared to be
pinned in at the 30, but he
bounced outside and raced
down the left sideline for an
79 yard return for a touch-
down.
Venice got the kickoff and
marched down the field
again. Laurie had just busted
eight yards for a first down at
the Mustang 27, but he had
the ball stripped.

Beasley put the ball on the
Indian 24. Two strong runs by
Bryce Johnston, and it was 12-
10 Ranch with 10:51 remain-
ing in the second quarter.
The Venice "0" didn't lose
the faith, grinding out a trade-
mark scoring drive. Playing
sm'ashmouth style, the
Indians covered 78 yards on
17 plays. Callahan scored the
touchdown on a fourth-and-
one quarterback sneak. The
two-point conversion failed,
but Venice had a 16-12 lead
with 57 seconds left before
halftime.
Ranch started its final drive
of the first half at the 36. A 12-
yard scramble by Slowik gave
the Mustangs a first down at
the 48. Slowik then hit Beasley
over the middle for a 27-yard
gain. The ball flew out of his
hands after a hit. An oppor-
tunistic McNeal, also down-
field as a receiver, picked up
the fumble and sped 25 yards
for the backbreaking TD that
gave Ranch an 18-16 lead
with 21 seconds remaining.
Venice took the second
half kickoff and began driving
again. The Indians moved the
ball to the Ranch 31, where
they faced a fourth and seven.
Callahan was hit and fum-
bled, this killing the drive.
Ranch got some breathing
room later in the third quarter
as Johnston rumbled 72 yards
to the Indian 4-yard line. The
ball came back to the 28 on a
hold, but Mark Thomas rum-
bled 21 yards for a TD that
made it 24-16.
For some reason, the
Ranch coaches went for two
instead of one. The Mustangs
failed, leaving a crack open
for Venice.
Instead of prying the door
open, the Indians allowed the
Mustangs to slam the door
shut.
While the Indians' offen-
sive woes mounted, Ranch
clinched the "W" on a 27-
yard run by Thomas late in
the game.
And any chances of post-
season were officially dead.

Freshman football drops season finale


The Venice High fresh-
man football team finished
the season at 3-3 following a
14-6 loss to visiting Sarasota
Wednesday night.
The Indians fell behind as
Sarasota scored on two long
touchdown runs in the first


half.
The defense tightened
the screws in the second half
and only allowed three first
downs over the third and
fourth quarters.
Venice scored with three
minutes remaining as quar-


terback Joe lorio hooked up
with Justin Grant on a 43-yard
pass play.
Defensively, Chad Arm-
strong, Evan Boone, Rashad
McCray, Anders Ullrich and
Taurus Washington were very
active.

Public workshop to

discuss landfill access
Sarasota-County will hold a public workshop at 6:30
p.m., Monday, Oct. 30, at Twin Lakes Park, 6700
Clark Road, Sarasota, to discuss a proposed landfill
access change that would allow entry to the landfill
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 limitation and
allow access from both Knights Trail Roadfrom the
south and Clark Road from the north.
County staff is concerned that the landfill's single
entrance could be blocked by damage from a
hurricane or even a catastrophic vehicle accident on
1-75. The change would also save fuel and time for
waste haulers traveling from the north.

Zoning board complicates duplex dispute


Last September, the county commission agreed
to allow more duplexes on Siesta Key, to cover
past mistakes by building and zoning officials.


BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS
A board of citizen
appointees could complicate
the anticipated legal show-
down between Sarasota
County and Siesta Key over
more residential density on
the island if it approves build-
ing permits for two new
duplex buildings on a pair of
undersized residential lots.
On Oct. 9, the county's
board of zoning appeals post-
poned until Nov. 13 a decision
on whether to override Zo-
ning Administrator Mary
Beth Humphreys' denial of
building permits for pro-
posed structures at 330 and
336 Avenida De Mayo be-
cause the lots are too small.
"This board is supposed to
follow the county's zoning
code," said Siesta Key Asso-
Sciation President Lourdes
* Ramirez, "but because it has
quasi-judicial powers, a deci-
,. sion to allow the permits
Could become law if we don't
challenge it in court."
SKA has already threat-
ened to sue the county if it
^ issues building permits for
new duplexes on undersized
Siesta lots, or if it adopts com-
prehensive plan and code
amendments to reduce lot
size regulations.
On Sept. 21, the county's
planning commission ap-
- peared to set the stage for a
: legal showdown on more Siesta
^ Key density when it narrowly
voted 5-4 to approve proposed
lot-size reduction amend-
ments and forward them to the
county commission.
A persuading factor in the
decision was testimony from
' buildfi'g'and 'zodinig 6fficdial'R
that the increase would only
affect an estmnatecdr8 Siesta
' Key lot owners, plus about
1,700 more mainland proper-
' ty owners in the unincorpo-
rated county.
The county commission is
also split, having voted 3-2 last
autumn to have the amend-
ments drafted. But that could
change because Commis-
sioner David Mills cast one of
the prevailing votes, and he
leaves office after the Nov. 7
general election.
Mistake
While the focus of this resi-
dential density debate has
been on the county commis-
sion and planning commis-
sion, the board of zoning
appeals quietly entered the fray
in May when it voted 5-2 to
override Humphreys and allow
a new duplex on an undersized
lot at 505 Beach Road.
The decision followed testi-
mony from Humphreys that it
was the county commission's
policy to allow duplexes on
undersized lots, a statement she
has conceded was made in
error and admitted to zoning
board members at the Oct. 9
meeting.
"In response to a question,
I said it was the county com-
mission's policy to allow
them," Humphreys told the
Pelican Press. "What I should


have said was the county
commission asked that code
changes be brought back for a
public hearing. I was con-
fused and made a mistake."
Florida's comprehensive
planning law specifically states
that local governments should


"direct population concentra-
tions away from known or pre-
dicted coastal high hazard
areas" such as Siesta Key, and
not increase density through
zoning decisions.
On July 6, Siesta Key
Association directors voted 14-


2 to sue the county if it issues
any building permits based on
20 letters written by zoning
officials to property owners
that guarantee they can devel-
op duplexes on undersized lots
in multi-family zones.
It has also promised to chal-


lenge any comprehensive plan
and zoning code changes that
increase density on the Siesta
Key through the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs and if necessary -
through lawsuits filed in circuit
court.

BY JOE GIORGIANNI
CORRESPONDENTI

Some 3,000 miles from
Florida, as the crow flies, lies an
island unlike any you've ever
seen. An hour's boat ride off the
North West coast of the state of
Washington, San Juan Island is
just 9 miles wide and 13 miles
long, yet majestic, beautiful and
historic. The island is accessible
only by ferry, private boat or
plane.
There is no port where cruise
ships can unload masses of
tourists, nor are there any shop-
ping malls on the island. There is
no NMcDonald's nor any other
franchise restaurant. Instead,
San Juan is one of those
unspoiled places where one can
simply kick back, relax and enjoy
the scenery and some of the best
seafood in the world.
Not just another pretty island,
San Juan has its storied past.,
Many of the stories relate to the
"Pig War," which nearly assured
that the island would belong to
the British, despite its location
off the coast of what was des-
tined to be a state in the United
States. That tale dates back to
1859 when Lyman Cutler, an
American settler, shot. a pig
belonging to the Hudson Bay
Trading Company, a British-
owned firm. The pig had been
eating its way through Cutler's
garden. When the United States
Army came to the defense of
Cutler, a standoff lasting more
than 12 years began. The stand-'
off pitted a regiment of British
soldiers against U.S. troops. It
appeared the winner of the
ensuing war would become the
proud owner of the island. The
matter was ultimately settled in
1872 by an ombudsman from
Germany, Kaiser Wilhelm I. The
Kaiser said the Americans
should own the island, which
was the last piece of U.S. soil


ever occupied by the British.
... After all the bluster, when the
matter was settled, the only life
lost was the pig's.

Living on the edge
Today, the island houses
more than 2,000 residents. Many
live in Friday Harbor, which also
is the county seat. Named after
an Indian sheepherder, Friday
Harbor is a town driven by
tourist dollars. Townspeople do
what they can to make the
tourists feel welcome and
appreciated. Both residents and
visitors attend productions of
the San Juan Community
Theatre.
Roche Harbor Village is the
island's other major town.
Listed on the National Register
of Historical Sites,, it is roughly
10 miles from Friday Harbor.
Another large area of land
on the island is occupied by the
University of Washington
Marine Laboratory. The labora-
tory is on a 500-acre tract that
was a land grant during the pres-
idency of Warren Harding, in
1921. The university offers year-
round classes for the study of
marine life and marine ecosys-
tems.
Orca whales, often visible'
from the shoreline, frequent
the waters of the Starits of San
Juan. ,
Land-based wildlife includes
deer, wild turkeys and eagles.
Other popular activities on
the island include fishing for
salmon, bird watching, kayak-
ing, hiking and bike riding.
Residents raise alpaca and
farm lavender which thrives in
the often misty temperate
coastal climate.
Casual living is the rule. Leave
the neckties at home.
To learn more about the
island, visit.sanjuanisland.org or
call the island's chamber of
commerce at (360) 378-5240.

Islands. In the second photo, the mist rolls in to the harbor. Middle photo at left shows the
ferry boat waiting for island passengers. The pig that died for the cause might have lived

'Ding' Darling Wildlife Refuge: wonderful

resource close to home


LAIRY UAj-N'


*We just returned from a
trip to Sanibel Island. Of
course, that trip had to
include a visit to "Ding" Dar-
ling National Wildlife Refuge.
The refuge offers a wide vari-
ety of species for you to see
and enjoy. Birds of all types
and colors abound, and
toward sunset, raccoons be-
gan to appear.
One of the easiest ways to
see wildlife at this refuge that
provides food and roosting
places for migratory and per-
manent resident species, is
along the Wildlife Drive-a
one-way road that's about five
meandering miles long. You
don't even have to leave your
car to watch egrets, herons,
spoonbills, osprey and other
colorful critters. It is easy,
however, to pull to the right so
other cars can pass by, and
walk a bit.
The drive is open during
daylight hours, but it's closed
on Friday to give the wildlife
an opportunity to feed along
the roadside undisturbed by
humans. This, closure also
gives refuge staff a chance to
do any repairs or mainte-
nance along the roadway that
might be necessary. There is a
$5 charge per car; $1 per hiker
or biker. Golden Eagle and
other similar federal passes
are accepted.
r-.drive,-there are-alse-three-hik-
ing trails that intrigue the,
curious: Indigo Trail, Wulfert
Keys Trail and Shell Mound
Trail. The Indigo Trail leaves
from the education center
and ends at the cross-dike,
which extends from Wildlife
Drive. The Wulfert Keys Trail is
only a quarter-mile. It runs
from Wildlife Drive to Pine
Island Sound. Another quar-
ter-mile trail, Shell Mound,
saw a lot of damage to the

vegetation from Hurricane

hurricane damage. Hurricane
Wilma shut down "Ding"
Darling in October 2005.
There is an additional 100-
acre section of "Ding" Darling
Refuge that's open to hikers


and bikers at any time, the
Bailey Tract. It's located off
Tarpon Bay Road, and com-
bines freshwater plants and
wildlife in an interior wetland.
The best time to visit this
wildlife-rich habitat is
between December and

President Harry S. Truman to

developers.

GUESTCOLUMNIST

Leave it to Dewey to come
up with a new idea. In some
ways, it was inevitable, of
course, because Dewey was
so accident prone it got to the
point where no one would
hire him any more.
When you turn over a
friend's grease truck on the
interstate, and when you
manage to get your dad's
truck stuck in a mudhole ...
during a drought ... you just
plain have to be Dewey.
He's a good guy, and he
works hard. It's just that ...
well, things happen to Dewey.


So here was a single guy in his
early thirties who hadn't yet
managed to whack off any
arms or legs, and he was stuck
for something to do. He was
finally able to do some yard
'work trade-out at the gas sta-
tion to get his dad's old pick-
up running again, and Dewey
was in business. But what
business?
He'd talked with most of us
about what kind of a job he
might do that wouldn't.end in
disaster. No orne wbuld'd"flt
him on the payroll or the
company insurance plan by
this time, so it would have to
be something he could do on
his own.
He thought at first of doing
yard work, but Doc talked
him out of that.
"Dewey," he told him,
"before you do yard work I
want you to consider several
things. Lawn mowers, trim-
mers, hedge clippers and
saws all have sharp edges."
"What you need," said

SENlR SCENE


Down a lazy river in an inner tube


The other day I was reclin-
ing in my armchair and
remembering the time I went
tubing down the beautiful
Muskegon River in Big
Rapids, Mich., with a group
from United Church.
I must have been about 64
years old and at the time I
thought, "Gee, I'm pretty old
to be so venturesome." Now I
think 64 is young, just about
the beginning of middle age.
How our perspectives
change!
Then I started wondering
how tubing got started. Now,
of course, it is a thriving busi-
ness and a wonderful way to
spend a sunny Sunday after-
noon, floating in an inner
tube down gently moving
waters.
My three children went all
through high school with the
Muskegon River practically
running through the school's
front yard, before tubing was
known. I suppose that ever
since inner tubes were
invented some people must
have been creative enough to
figure out ingenious uses for
them.
Take, for instance, my
friend Nancy, my helper with
all improbable tasks, such as
recopying this 55 times. She
Lels me ,daL, when she was, a
id., her. dald used-to piu hler


in an inner tube with his tied
next to hers as they floated
down the Mahoning River in
Warsaw, Ohio, at their sum-
mer cottage. That was 70
years ago!
My friend Caroline tells me
her daughters went tubing
while at camp in the Ozarks
when they were children.
Suppose one wanted to
tube around Venice. Can you
picture floating down the
Myakka River in an inner tube
with your neck and feet dan-
gling in the water, neck to
neck, cozying up with.an alli-
gator? They are not supposed
to feed in the daytime, but I
don't suspect they like their
sunny repose bothered either.
I dunno!
Just when I ruled out tub-
ing around Venice, I received
a phone call from Tory
Pinney, my former typist, ask-
ing me how I was. I was telling
her about this article and she
said, "Oh, I've been tubing in
the gulf."
I asked, how in the world
did you do that?
"I was pulled in an inner
tube behind a boat," she
replied.
Peggy, one of our wonder-
ful aides here at
HarborChase, said she and
her three children went tub-
ing down the Suwanee River
in Northern Florida.
Still trying to find out how
tubing got started.as a nation-
al pasttime, I asked my side-
kick, Endrus, if she would
look up tubing on the Web. So
imagine my surprise when
she called back with her find-
ings.
"Guess what? It says Big
Rapids is the tubing capital of
the country."
Of course, the people up
there know that, but I guess I
lost touch with my city of 24


years.
The gently winding
Muskegon River is very safe,
being not too 'deep, with
scenery of gently sloping
lawns and gardens and a cur-
rent that changes periodical-
ly. It makes it ideal for tubing.
It was about 1971 when
Ferris State University in Big
Rapids decided to use tubing
for its fall orientation pro-
gram. So, do you suppose that
was the beginning of it all?
Even when we lived there
you could hear dozens of
Ferris students enjoying their
two-and-a-half-hour trip
down the Muskegon, singing
their hearts away, with per-
haps five or six tubes tied
together and one in the mid-
dle holding snacks and
drinks. Sometimes residents
can still hear them, long into
the night.
Dr. Jerry Conrad, who
always took an interest in the
safety of and enjoyment of
the Muskegon River, spear-
headed the task of designing
and building the paved walk
north of the city that connects
the three parks. I guess he
also had a lot to do with the
fiandicap-accessible bridge
across the river,
Way back when I was writ-
ing for the paper in the 1960s,
I remember Jerry, after going
over the dam in a canoe, say-
ing "I don't want anyone ever
to do that again!" The rocks
below are far too dangerous.
And so, to paraphrase an
old song: "Tubing down the
river on a Sunday afternoon."
Virginia Deupree is 92,
and almost blind. She is a:
graduate of Indiana Univer-
sity, rioted for its School of
Journalism. Virginia was a
city editor and a columnist
for many years, and now-

Historic and haunted?
Hunter Museum of
American Art
'Even before the Hunter
NMuseum's original mansion
was built in 1905, the muse-
umrn cliff-top site was used as
a battery for both Union and
Confederate troops during
the Civil War. Before that, the
ground was considered a holy
place by the Cherokee. Given
the area's history it is no won-
der that some Chattanooga
residents and visitors \wonder
if spirits might still linger in
the mansion and its grounds.
A ghost hunter did visit the
museum in the 1990s and
some Chattanooga residents
have stories of strange hap-


openings in the mansion por-
don of die museum.
During the month of
October, visitors can tour the
museum's collection of
American art long recog-
nized as one of the country's
finest and discover works
from the colonial era to the
contemporary. Guests can
also participate in a scav-
enger hunt width a Halloween
dtheme and explore the muse-
um's Edwardian mansion.

This is one bus ride that every rider will remember, except for those few who do not survive and
end up on the "other side:'


STAFF REPORT a

When ChartaBOOga trans-
forms itself from Chat-
tanooga in October, it's not
the typical haunted venue.
There's a haunted cavern
carved out of the side of a
mountain; an amazing corn
maze friendly by day, but a
heart-stopping labyrinth by
night; and there's a killer crit-
ter craze where fear factor
creatures and their "habits"
are explored in all their gorey
detail. October in Chat-
tanooga offers thrilling, chill-
ing adventure and family fun
you can't experience any-
where else.
Survive the Ruby Falls
Haunted Cavern
"Ding" the, doors open.
Anticipation builds as you
step inside what appears to
be a standard elevator. You
feel at ease when the ride
begins, this as'you think, is
the calm before the storm.
Entering the "Haunted
Cavern Hellevator" is only
one of the new, intense, hair-
raising experiences you'll
have at the 2006 Ruby Falls
Haunted Caverns. You are
about to discover a horrible
secret that rests deep in the
heart of Lookout Mountain.
Hidden research laboratories
have been breached and their


horrible crimes against
humanity have escaped
Twisted mutations are run-
ning rampant above and
below and have an insatiable
hunger. Explore thousands of
feet of twisting caverns lined
with live actors, gasp at horri-
ble mutations, but whatever
you do... Don't Look Back!
The spooky cavern will be
open after dark (8 p.m.) every
week from Thursday-Sunday
in October and on Halloween.
Closing time varies by date.
Call if you plan to arrive after
10 p.m. Not recommended
for the faint of heart or chil-
dren under 10.
Slither through the
Enchanted Maze at Rock
City Gardens
First you think questions
and a corn maze, can't be too
hard, right?
Your correct answers get
you straight into the heart of
the maze. Then, as you're
looking for your Way out, you
suddenly begin to question
your answers as the trails get
harder to figure out. Getting
the questions right is the key
in getting out of the challeng-
ing, 10-acre labyrinth of trails,
answering them wrong will
only take you deeper into the
maze. Panic. As darkness sur-
rounds the field, the maze


turns into the Spooky Acres
Maze where the 10-foot stalks
outlined by the moonlight
creates a hair-raising chal-
lenge ol haunted twists,
rustling stalks, eerie spooks
and other mysterious crea-
tures.
Additional fall festivities
include hayrides, a play-
ground, a kiddie hay maze
and a Rock City Barn. The
2006 Enchanted MAIZE
design celebrates Rock City
Gardens' 75th Anniversary.
The maze will be open
through Oct. 29, Thursdays
from 9 a.m.-8 p.m.; Friday
and Saturday from 9 a.m.-10
p.m.; and Sunday, noon-8
p.m. The maze is recom-
mended for all ages. For more

scenic mountain beauty,
beckoning you. to do the
"Chicken Dance" on the
polka stage. And nothing says

the bulbous, eight-legged
octopus and the stinging
ghouls of slime: the jellyfish.
Special dives and gallery pro-
grams will focus on the myths
and mysteries of some of the
most feared animals on earth.
Visitors can also register to
win a behind-the-scenes tour
to watch biologists feed some
of the Aquarium's most dan-
gerous creatures.
At the IMAX 3D Theater
you can face off with a wolf
eel, hunt with hungry stand
tiger sharks or dodge hun-
dreds of voracious Humboldt
squids in an inky black sea in
"Deep Sea 3D." Or if you
never got your fill of "Jaws,"
dive to the depths of the sea
to swim with the biggest fish
on earth and overcome your
greatest fear when you
encounter a great white shark
in "Sharks 3D."
On Oct. 27, dress to

Miss Zackon, where are you now?


DICK HARISON
GUEST ,COLUMNIST


I was hopelessly in love!
That she was more than twice
my age didn't matter. When
Miss Zackon became my
fifth-grade teacher she was
probably fresh out of
teacher's college. PS. 51 had
never seen her likes, nor had
I. My scholastic frame of ref-
erence was long on tenure
but woefully short on charm.
There was Miss Sappington,
who weighed just short of a
ton, taught second grade and
put disorderly children in the
knee hole under her desk,
blocking all light with her pil-
lar size legs and black, floor
length dress. Mrs. Smith, who
looked like Eleanor Roosevelt,
inspired a life-long love of
books by daily reading from
"Dr. Doolittle's Adventures in
a Drop of Water" and "Silver
Chief, Dog of the North" to
her third-grade classes. There
was red-haired Miss Edith,
who made us fourth-graders
memorize and recite embar-
rassing lines such as Joyce
Kilmer's, "a tree who's hungry
mouth is pressed against the
earth's sweet flowing breast"
and fierce Miss Adams, who
lay in wait for me in the sixth
grade.


Compared with them,
Miss Zackon was a vision of
beauty, sweet temper, gentle
guidance and an object of
what I later realized was
unbridled lust. The only
teacher who might have
come close was Miss Riggs,
my first-grade teacher, whose
daddy bought the famous
sheet of misprinted upside
down Jenny stamps. She
passed out chewing gum in
school, taught us all to save
stamps and- was very pretty.
But I was too young to appre-
ciate much more than the
gum and stamps.
As soon as the shock of
seeing such a sparkling gem
in' the dreary setting .of our
fifth-grade classroom wore
off, I began a campaign to
become teacher's pet. Suc-
ceeding beyond my wildest
dreams, I became a willing
and deliriously happy slave to
her slightest whim. I was
waiting when she arrived in
the morning and stayed at
her beck and call until she left
in the afternoon. No task was
too great; there were no
erasers more vigorously beat-
en, no blackboards more
carefully washed and pol-
ished. I stacked books,
straightened desks, sharp-
ened pencils, filled ink wells,
pinned work on the bulletin
boards, ran errands and prat-
tied joyfully to her about the
things I did, the books I read,
about life, learning and long-
ing. She loved children and I
was a bright little boy who
doted on her company and
did all I could to be sure she
enjoyed mine.
Because I knew she valued
achievement, I became a star

student. When she became
advisor to the Science Club, I
joined and willingly prepared
reports on any subject she
thought I would enjoy. She
also ran the Student Safety
Council, which I joined forth-
with and became president
out of readiness to undertake
any task no other kid wanted.
With her encouragement and
help I wrote an essay on safe-
ty in a citywide contest that
won the first prize of $15 and
the chance to read the com-
position on local radio.
As the school year drew to
a close, I realized that next
term I would be in Miss
Adams' class and, except for
the fact I could help Miss
Zackon after school, .the
prospect was almost too sad
to bear. She encouraged me
to enroll in the local library's
summer reading program
and asked me to write to her
about the books r liked.
Spurred by the chance to con-
tinue shining in her firma-
ment, I chose massive tomes'
from the adult section and


devoured works such as "The
Grandeur. That Was Rome,"
and "The Glory That Was
Greece" in such short order
the librarian grew suspicious I
was taking the books out only
for show.
A couple of weeks before
the fall term, Miss Zackon vis-
ited me at home. I was ecstat-
ic until I heard her crush-
ing news. She came, in per-
son, to tell me she was getting
married and would not be
returning to P.S. 51.
We both cried.

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

Q. Every time I open the
paper I see advertisements
for digital hearing aids at
very low prices. When I
asked my Audiologist about
this, she said those digital
hearing aids do not have
computers in them. Help,
I'm confused.
A. Confusing you is exactly
what those advertisements
hope to do. "Real" .digital
hearing aids contain
sophisticated computers which
process sound moment to
moment. These tiny computers
change the amplification in
reaction to changes in the
environment of the listener.
They are able to perform
hundreds of computations per
second and provide clear, high
fidelity sound to the listener at
all times. It is these types of
instruments people think of
when they, hear the term
"digital hearing aid." Some
manufacturers, however, have
chosen to remove the
computers from their hearing
aids while still keeping the
"digital" label. These
instruments do not do any
moment-to-moment signal
processing and cannot be
reprogrammed in the future.
Because these instruments do
not contain computers, their
performance is limited and
their prices are low. The
advertisers you mentioned are
hoping you notice the low price
and won't notice the difference
between "their" digital hearing
aids and "real" ones. In order
to learn more about the benefits
of various hearing aid
technologies and which ones
would work best for you, call
the Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. at 492-4327 or 206-2136
to schedule a hearing
demonstration.

Understanding your dog's body language


BERNIE THOMAS


Just like us humans, dogs
use a body language all their
own to communicate with
one another. They use that
language to communicate
with us, too; it's just that most
of us aren't tuned in to it. In
fact, much of their behavior
may seem extremely odd to
us unless we have the key to
unlock their meaning.
Learning how to inter-
pret various instinctual
actions pf your dog is D{
critical to establishing Pe
authority, respect and p
control over our canine
friends. ap
Learning how to "lis- Sa
ten" to your dog
requires knowing what
to look for. For example,
does your dog stare at you
demanding that you do
something, or does he look


down when you look at him?
Does he carry his head up
high or down low? Are his ears
forward or back against his
Head? What about his mouth?
Is it open or closed? Is his
tongue inside his mouth or
outside? When you correct
your dog, does its tongue dart
in and out?
To understand a dog's
body language we need to
focus on certain body parts,
especially its .eyes, ears,
mouth, tongue and tail.
Because of a dog's pack men-
tality, he will either follow the
leader or be the leader. Your
ultimate goal is to assume th
leadership role with your dog;
and a key to understanding
your progress in this area is by
observing the actions of his
eyes and ears.
Notice your dog's eyes. If
he is staring at you, he maybe

demanding something from
you or seeking confrontation.
If his eyes are looking down,


he feels respectful toward you
and understands that you are
the pack leader. If your dog's
ears are forward, he may be
listening to you or listening
for noises. If his ears ate back,
he is showing respect tor your
leadership.
His mouth can also hold
clues tp his disposition. If it is
closed, it could mean he is
fearful of the situation he is in
presently pr merely that
something has caught his
attention. If his tongue is'
darting in and out wlile you
correct him; he is showing
you a sign of submission and
respect.
If his tail is up and wagging
slowly, he is feeling dominant
over you. When his tail is
down and between the legs,
he could be showing you that
he is fearful or submissive.
Expressive body language
can also be seen when
your dog moves

Bark example, walk to your

side.
Learning how to under-
stand your dog's body lan-
guage can be both fun and
instructive. It is very reward-
ing when you begin to feel a
closer connection with your


pet, and this only comes by
speaking to him on his own
terms.

Wimbledon History
A piece of Wimbledon his-
tory is up for auction at

"She gives from the heart, and
we and the animals appreci-
ate it so much."
Navratilova, who won the
women's singles title at Wim-
bledon a record nine times,
retired from Wimbledon this
year, expressing a desire to
spend more time at home
here in Sarasota County.

diac, those born in the Year of
the Dog have giving, compas-
sionate natures.

- A rare opportunity for the
animal lover, the winner will
get VIP tours and special
bonus experiences at premier

extricate yourself from the maddening mob of quick impressions
ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet

"Charlevoix is my favorite
place in the world," says Mr.
Laughlin, who vacationed
there as a child and attended a
bike ride for donors in the area
two years ago. "The scenery's
spectacular."
Mr. Corley, 63, spent last
winter at Sun City Hilton Head,
an "active adult" community in
Bluffton, S.C., with a busy
cycling club, a growing net-
work of local trails, and Hilton
Head Island's 20 miles of
public pathways along with its
12 miles of beach. "My wife
and I love to take out our

hybrids do%.nI there and ride
out to the marsh, where we
have a picnic and watch the
birds," he says. "It's just
beautiful."
Helping to build and expand
the trails can become as big a
part of some retirees' lives as
using them. After moving to
Sun City Hilton Head six years
ago, Karen Heitman, one of Mr.
Corley's neighbors, helped
start an advocacy group called
Greater Bluffton Pathways in
an effort to expand a fledgling
network of trails as the small
town expands. "I wanted to be
able to ride my bike from Sun

City to Bluffton, and wasn't
able to because the roads
around us were so busy," says
Ms. Heitman, 60.
Her group lobbied South
Carolina officials to widen
highway shoulders to accom-
modate cyclists, developed a
program to donate 400 bike
helmets to local children, and
negotiated with Sun City's
developer to donate 10 acres
'for a trailhead. Now, she's
pushing to get 25 miles of
abandoned track nearby
turned into a rail trail that
might eventually become part
of a cycling corridor extending

up and down the East Coast.
Charlie MacInnis, a 59-year-
old retired corporate
spokesman in Harbor Springs,
Mich., took on Mr. Corley's
old job as president of the Top
of Michigan Trails Council last
winter. Mr. MacInnis says he
got hooked on trail-expansion
work when he realized that
"this is a way to build a legacy.
... When you see families
who can ride to the beach, or
get to work by bike, you
realize you're creating some-
thing that will help our
children and grandchildren."
