Cowpen Slough



key to water



independence


A reduced freshwater flow could help restore the


damaged Doria Bay water

BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A $186 million environ-
mental proposal to restore
the Dona Bay watershed near
Venice and provide Sarasota
County with 15 million gal-
lons of additional drinking
water a day could satisfy
growth projections and utility
demands for the next 40
years.
On Tuesday, the county
commission conceptually
endorsed a three-phase plan
to divert Cowpen Slough
water away from Shakett
Creek and into a Laurel area
reservoir near the existing
Carlton Treatment Plant,
where it would be cleaned up
for public consumption.
"This is an opportunity of a
lifetime and possibly the
most significant I will make
on this board," Com-
missioner Jon Thaxton said.
"We will redefine the mean-
ing of water supply, restore an
estuary, and also restore an
upstream area. This is a first."
Cowpen Slough is a former
Myakka River tributary that
was redirected into Shakett
Creek between the mid-1940s
and '60s when large wetland
areas were drained. It
expanded ,the Dona Bay
watershed from 15 to 75
square miles and damaged
the environment.
The complex proposal
would reduce the flow of
freshwater into a fragile Dona
Bay estuary environment that
depends on a delicate bal-
ance of saltwater and fresh-
water. Experts believe the
change over a 20-year period
would re-establish healthy
clams and oysters.
Another component of the
project is dirt to cover the
county's landfill near Laurel.
It would come from an exist-


rushed.


ing borrow pit when it is
expanded and reconfigured
into a reservoir. A second
water treatment plant would
be constructed on the Carlton
site.
Independent
The additional water sup-
ply could make Sarasota
County independent for the
first time in a half century. It
has purchased drinking water
from Manatee County since
the 1960s, and invested heav-
ily in Peace River water
through a regional authority.
Theresa. Connor, the
county's water resources
general manager, suggested
to commissioners that the
project would both reduce
fresh water flow into the
Dona Bay system by 40 per-
cent and reduce damaging
nitrogen pollution by 88
percent.
Untapped public water
-supply possibilities for the
county were spelled out in
2001 when the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District released a "Regional
Water Suplply Plan" and esti-
mated the potential daily
water yield from a list of
potential sources.
Water bodies with familiar
names such as Shell Creek
in Charlotte County, Cowpen
Slough and Myakkahatchee
Creek in Sarasota County, and
the Little Manatee River in
Manatee County were all
identified for future study by
water experts.
So, too, was the possibility
of a regional desalination
plant that would filter out
brine from Gulf of Mexico
saltwater and discharge the
residue. The Myakka River,
which had been considered
off limits for environmental
reasons, was also included on
the list.

The Venice Housing
Authority is again counting
on the Housing Authority of
the City of Fort Myers to help
it out of a jam.
Shorthanded and in the
midst of the biggest redevel-
opment project in its history,
theVHA board made the deci-
sion to request assistance
from the Miami HUD office
about three weeks-ago after
Deputy Director Deborah
Bevan resigned to take anoth-
er job.
A HUD spokesman con-
firmed Thursday a peer hous-
ing authority would provide
assistance to VHA, but
declined to name the office
until a signed agreement is
reached.
"It shows we don't have a
problem asking for help a
willingness to make sure
things are done correctly,"
said VHA chairman Sam
Prost.
It could be year and a half
in between executive direc-
tors, he said.
The last executive director
was Peter Lopez, who
resigned in February after a
Gondolier Sun story about his
intent to ushe redevelop-
ment to reduce the number of
units available to low-income
renters. Bevan, a protege of
Lopez, served as operations
manager before accepting the
deputy director position.,
Both Lopez who worked
at VHA for two years and got
Grove Terrace off of HUD's
troubled housing list and
Bevan originally came to VHA
from the Fort Myers housing
authority.
Coasting
Prost said the VHA is pre-
pared to weather the drought
until a new executive is hired.
VHA and Picerne, develop-
ers of the planned Brookside
Village' housing project in
Venice, entered into a con-
tract Tecently that puts on
Piceme's subcontractor, Mi -
ami-based National Housing
Group, Inc.,. much of the
responsibility for relocation
activities, including counsel-
ing existing residents about
attaining section 8 vouchers
and finding temporary hous-


ing.
Under the contract,
Picerne is required to manage
Brookside until it's 80 percent
occupied, then management
reverts to VHA, Prost said.
"We'll try to coast without a
director (until that time)," he
said. "Once the demolition
begins, there won't be any-
thing to manage."
New construction isn't
expected to be completed
until the latter part of 2008.
Prost expects demolition
of the existing low-income
Grove Terrace Apartments to
begin about the end of May.
Help arrives
Fort Myers' HUD staff
arrived this week for the first
time to help VHA's residence
services coordinator Maritza
Lago-the lone remaining
staffer at VHA file required
paperwork to stay in compli-
ance with federal, state and
local regulations.
Lago, with assistance, will
assume day-to-day opera-
tions at Grove Terrace
Apartments until the reloca-
tions are complete.
She'll handle complaints,
like Thursday's "boil water"


notice that arrived too late to
do anything about, residents
said.
Deteriorated pipes at
Grove Terrace resulted in a
request to the city to turn off
its water until VHA could
make repairs. Trying to be
helpful, the city gave VHA
"boil.water" notices for distri-
bution and provided 177 gal-
lons "bf bottled water to ten-
ants.
Resident Stevie Carpenter
said the water had a greasy-oil
smell and made her and her
son ill. It didn't help that the
gallon jugs had the wrong
"expiration" date stamped on
them, making it appear to
have already expired, city offi-
cials said.
Meanwhile, residents say
the undesirables who. used to
frequent the apartments
before Lopez came on the
scene are back, frightening
residents.
Resident Council president
Carter Canada said notices
were distributed on Thursday
informing residents the
Venice Police Department
has made a commitment to
beef up foot patrols in the
area.

Police Department records
supervisor.
Pasik, 70, was killed when
struck by a car while walking
near his South. Venice home
Tuesday about 6 p.m.
"He was a gentleman; he
always had smile on his face,"
VPD Sgt. Tom McNulty said.
"You never knew he was real-
ly sick, he always had positive
attitude and was very dedicat-
ed to his family."
In fact, Pasik was diag-
nosed with leukemia eight
years ago and beat it, but
reportedly was suffering from
Parkinson's disease at the
time of his death.
"What irony," McNulty
said. "To have beat leukemia,
and get killed walking along
the street."
Pasik also will be remem-
bered for a wry sense of
humor.
"Sometimes, you would
think he was ripping on you,"
one friend 'said, "then you
would see the twinkle in his
eye."
According to a Florida


Highway Patrol report, Pasik
was walking his dog, going
west on Shamrock Boulevard
near the intersection of
Pomelo Drive, at 6:15 p.m..
A car driven by Diane J.
Christis, 22, 1300 block
Mango Ave., Venice, also was
traveling west on Shamrock.
The right front of her car hit
Pasik from behind.
According to the report,
Christis had not been drink-
ing.
No charges have been filed
against the driver of the car.
The investigation is con-
tinuing.
Court records show Chris-


tis has two blemishes on her
record.
She was charged with
resisting an officer without
violence and disorderly con-
duct in April 2002. Adjud-
ication was withheld in that
case.
In November 2003, Christis
was charged with refusal to
surrender a driver license or
registration. Adjudication was
also withheld in that case.
"Adjudication withheld"
means no finding of guilt was
officially made by the court.

BOCC honors departing Commissioner Mills


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


David Mills, outgoing
chairman and Sarasota
County com-
missioner
from District
2, got a fond
farewell from (
his colleagues
Wednesday.
Vice Chair-
woman Nora
Patterso n
started the Mills
festivities fol-
lowing the
commission meeting by
awarding Mills a gavel and a
framed photograph of the
Ringing
Bridge, which
he helped
become a
Reality.
You v e
worked very,
very hard for
the good of
the commu-
Patterson nity," Patt-
erson told
Mills. "So many people in the
county appreciate what
you've done. I'm one of
them."
Commissioner Shannon
Staub went next. .


"I've counted up the com-
missioners that you have sur-
vived," Staub said. "Eleven of
them. I started seeing some of
them and now I know how
you lost your hair."
Staub added she would
miss Mills' sense of humor.
Commissioner Jon Tha-
xton then took the floor.
"David and I have often


disagreed throi
years we've
known each
other "
Thaxton said.
"Before I got
elected, I was
often a critic.
But in the last
six years I've
found myself
much more of
a fan and a


Staub


defender of your honor,
because I came to realize that
while we disagree there is no
way anyone, can question
your motives and your com-
mitment to this community."
Commissioner Paul Mer-
cier went last.
"When I first got here,
David, you were a pain in the
posterior," Mercier said. "I
went to see my shrink and he
said, 'Maybe you need to
understand, the guy a little
better.' And I have. You go


right to the point of the issue."
Back to work
Mills, 68, served on the
commission for 16 years and
had reached the end of his
final term.
Although Wednesday. was
his final commission meet-
ing, Mills' last day as county
commissioner will be Nov. 7.
He will be -replaced by incom-
ing commissioner-elect Joe
Barbetta. Patterson will suc-
ceed Mills as
chairwoman
and Sfaub will
step into
Patterson's
place as new
vice chair- I
woman.
Mills side-
s t e p p e d Mercier
questions on
what he would do in his post-
commissioner days, hinting
there were requests for his
services in Tallahassee.
He was elected to the
Sarasota Board of County
Commissioners in 1990. He
was re-elected three times,
and in 1994 and 2002 ran
unopposed.
He is a member of the
Sarasota County Agricultural
Fair Association and the
Suncoast Workforce Devel-


Foundation approves $1 million in grants


STAFF REPORT

The board of directors of
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice
approved grant awards total-
ing $1,055,590 at its October
meeting.
These community invest-
ments target some pressing
issues facing the region,
including vocational and life
skills training for those in
need, a critical shortage of
trained nurses practicing,
locally gnd the capacity of
firs[ responders to provide
immediate relief throughout
the region following a disas-
ter.
A grant of $75,000 to the
Goodwill Foundation will
help Goodwill Indus-
ries-Manasota create the
largest nonprofit vocational
training center in Venice.


Goodwill plans to turn an
18,000-square-foot space in
the Rialto Center on Tamiami
Trail into its fifth and largest
Goodwill Good Neighbor
Training Center in southern
Sarasota County.
This center will provide 35
new jobs and annually
employ about 70 individuals
with severe disabilities or
other barriers to steady
employment. The new center
also will serve more than 500
people with information and
referral, job placement and
employment counseling ser-
vices.
The foundation board
approved a $50,000 capping
grant to the Foundation for
Manatee Community College
to expand the registered nurs-
ing degree program at MCC's
Venice campus.
This grant from the


Community Health Endow-
ment Fund will support the
addition of a nursing faculty
position at MCC Venice,
enabling the nursing pro-
gram there to expand its
capacity by enrolling 12
licensed, practical nurses in a
new accelerated program to
educate them as registered
nurses.
The foundation's capping
grant will be awarded, after
theFoundation for MCC has
raised the additional $142,000
nece-sary for the nursing pro-
graln et.panpson.
First response
The foundation also
awarded the American Red
Cross-Southwest Florida
Chapter a grant of $100,000
- the chapter's largest grant
to date to help fund a pro-
ject to strengthen its head-


quarters against hurricanes
and other potential disasters.
By hardening its offices
and facilities to withstand a
major storm, the Red Cross
will be able to safely house
personnel and resources dur-
ing a disaster. This will ensure
that Red Cross first-response
resources can be deployed
quickly and effectively
throughout our region
immediately following a
storm or other disaster.
These awards, plus an
additional $830,590 in com-
munity grants approved by
the board in October, bring
the foundation's total grant-
making to more than $62 mil-
lion since 1995. More infor-
mation about the founda-
tion's October grant awards
can be found on the Web site
at gulfcoastcf.org.

LET 'EM HAVE IT! IS CHRISTMAS M C 20' a


From the frying pan into the fire


Deja vu.When my wife and
I moved from another state to
Sarasota County, we discov-
ered the same problems exist-
ed: school system in sham-
bles, less-than-adequate
neighborhood patrols by the
police, hit-and-miss trash
pick-up and substandard
county services. One big dif-
ference-it costs about 60
percent more here. Why are
we paying so much for so lit-
tle? That is my question.
Cures. I believe that there
are cures for the red tide and
possibly Bob Rigby is the per-
son who has the secret for-
mula, but Mote Marine and
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute-they do
not want to recognize him
because they'd lose all their
funding. Their scientists
would have to find something
else to do. They wouldn't be
able to raise money and do
something. And they would
rather not recognize an inde-
pendent person than go
ahead with his ideas. They're
not really looking for the cure,
they just want the glory of
finding it themselves. I also
believe there are cures for
cancer, but if there was a cure
published, the American
Cancer Society would be out
of business. The director, who
is well paid, would have to
look for another job. And all
the other businesses that gain
their support from the cancer
industry would have to look
some place else. Wouldn't that
be sad for all these people to
be unemployed? There are
doctors in this country who
have been prosecuted and
put in jail because they don't
follow the regimen that the
American Medical
Association has, and yet they
have proof that they've cured
cancer. So, you know, we live


in some really rough times
when money seems to be the
goal of everybody, not really
helping one another.
Missed opportunity. We're
still dealing with a parking
problem at the Venice
Elementary School. The new
elementary school was built
on the island even though 95
percent of the students and
school support staff have to
cross the bridges to get on the
island to the school. The
parking problem was there
with the old school and they
had an opportunity to do
something about it by relo-
cating the new school away
from the island. But they jus-
tified it by promising that the
new school would serve as a
second emergency shelter on
the island. That was part of
the sales pitch, just to get the
school built where it's at. We
all knew this was a bunch of
horse hockey from the get-go.
The parking problem was cre-
ated by design, more poor
planning by the government
with your tax dollars. It will be
there for the. next 30 years.
Thank the school board and
local politicians for the grief.
It will not go away. What
should have happened is that
the grade school should have
been built off the island. The
whole complex then could
have been used for a very new
and modern Venice High
School built on the island, if
necessary, using the grounds
down there, if necessary, for
parking and other recreation-
al purposes. But no, they had
to go ahead and build that on
the island simply because
there was always a grade
school on the island.
Rerouted? This is about the
bike race on the weekend
when Venice and Miami
Avenues were blocked off.


LET'EM HAVE IT
The Let'erf Have it line allows readers to sound offori issues of
local interest. Opinions expressed here are solely those of the
callers. Personal attacks on people; attacks on or commercials for
businesses;: political endorsements during election season; or
opinions or comments otherwise unfit for publication will not be
printed. If you would like to participate, call the line at 207-1111.
Please keep your comments brief; they are subject to editing. The
line is available all hours. Caller identification is not required.


Where do the fire engines and
emergency vehicles go when
they are called out? Miami is
the street normally used.
Seems to me response time
could be much delayed if
another route has to be taken.
Would you like to be the one
doing the chicken on the
ground or watching your
house burn because some
dumb race delayed the fire
truck or the meat wagon? I
sure wouldn't. I hope this gets
.a positive response from
somebody.
One number. You won't
believe this, but Sarasota
County has one phone num-
ber for libraries, for the Venice


Community Center and for
goodness knows what else.
They do not plan to put the
new phone number of the
Venice Community Center in
a telephone directory. The
local number for that
Community Center is 861-
1380. The all-purpose num-
ber for the library, and for
whatever else they've decided
in their infinite wisdom to
bunch under this number, is
861-5000. I think this is
bureaucracy at its most idiot-
ic. Also, just for your informa-
tion, they started giving flu
shots at the Venice Commu-
nity Center yesterday, but
they haven't bothered to noti-


fy the Gondolier Sun.
Sleeping? Some time ago
George Bush landed on an
aircraft carrier and stated, "In
Iraq, the mission is accom-
plished." In the last four days,
we've lost at least 21 soldiers
and untold Iraqi civilians. I
don't know how Bush,
Cheney and Rumsfeld can
even sleep or look in a mirror.
They should be impeached.
Agreed. Yes, the Venice
Post Office grounds are a dis-
grace.
Foamy. Have any of you
folks with a window seat fac-
ing the Intercoastal ever
noticed the patch of foamy,
turbulent water about 100
feet south of the bridge and
15 feet off the east shore? I've
been watching it ever since
the underwater work was fin-


ished and see it about 80 per-
cent of the time when the
water is smooth. Sometimes
there is a ripple without the
foam. I just, wonder who is
the polluter? Please let me
know if you notice it, too.
Wrong priority. What does
it say about our community
when our city council
approves or creates a dog
park at the beach yet there are
no facilities geared toward the
youth of our community?
Let's make the park more
youth friendly.
More art. Just saw the arti-
cle in the paper and I just
wanted to say that, yes, I fully
endorse public art and find
that seeing it around the
beautiful city of Venice only
enhances and augments its
attraction.

Buchanan, Jennings exchange barbs'


MCC from page A


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
, STAFF WRITER

The luncheon started out
peaceably enough.
But before dessert was
served, U.S. Congressional
District 13 candidates Chris-
tine Jennings, a Democrat,
and Vern Buchanan, a
Republican, were exchanging
heated woids over a host of
topics Thursday at a forum
sponsored by the Sarasota
Tiger Bay Club.
Sharing the dais in the ball-
room of restaurant Michael's
On East with four other can-
didates for state representa-
tive of Districts 69 and 70,
Jennings and Buchanan were
center stage and got the lion's
share of the attention. And
occasionally, they roared like
lions at each other.
"This is just wrong, the
amount of money that's spent
on these campaigns,"
Jennings said.
She added she would like
to see more public financing,
with candidates limited to
raising $400,000 in a district;
the candidate should put in
50 percent and the other
money be raised inside the
district.
"I will lead the charge on
this, believe me," Jennings
said;
It's no secret this congres-
. sional election is one of the,
most expensive in Florida his-
tory. Buchanan has spent
nearly $5 million oh his cam-
paign so far much of it out
of his own pocket opposed
to Jennings, who has spent a
k littlemore than $1 million.
S"The reality of it is these
ads cost $300,000-$400,000 a
h week," countered Buchanan.
. "Someone has to pay for it.
Do you want Washington and
Sthe folks up there buying the
ad, or would you rather have



A SALE







',
I! S


a candidate put in his own
money?"
'Harsh reality'
That raised the issue of
what those expensive ads say
- and how they say it.
One questioner asked the
candidates, "What do you
think those negative ads are
teaching our children?"
After thunderous applause
for the question died down,
Buchanan responded.
"In the political world, it's a
reality you're dealing with,"
he said, explaining what cam-
paign consultants have told
him.
"They claim it moves num-
bers," he added. "I don't like
negative. I've never liked it,
but it's the harsh reality you
deal with when someone calls
you a tax cheat."
Jennings, standing nearby,
smiled and shpok her head.
Opposites
Another Tiger Bay Club
member asked Buchanan,
"How is it the Democratic
candidate is leading in the
polls in this, a Republican dis-
trict?"
"First off, it's just the gener-
al environment in the coun-
try," Buchanan said. "Second,
we had a tough primary that
we came through that
(Jennings) didn't have. She
had one, but it wasn't tough."
That brought groans of dis-
approval from Jennings sup-
porters.
"I think the bigger issue is
- I'm sorry, what was the
question?" Buchanan said,
drawing derisive laughter
from the crowd.
Refreshed on the question,
he said his pollsters assured
him the race was dead-even.
"I have said for two and a
half years I know the people
of this district," Jennings


countered. "What matters to
them is the issues and the
people running. They don't
vote on a straight party line."
The candidates responded
along general party lines on
the issues of abortion, stem-
cell research and civil unions
for gay and lesbian couples.
Jennings was for them,
Buchanan against.
They agreed that employ-
ers ought to be fined for hir-
ing illegal immigrants.
Jennings went a little further,
saying the 11 million illegals
in this country who want citi-
zenship should earn it by
learning English, paying a
fine and having a clean arrest
record.
Strategy or not
On the subject of the Iraq
war, however, they drew dis-
tinct lines.
"We've got to support the
troops," Buchanan said. "But
we need a new game plan.
The administration realizes
it's not working out. Maybe
they should have known it
two years ago. They are repo-
sitioning, but they don't want
to cut and run. They want to
resolve this quickly. I don't
want another Vietnam."
Jennings shot back, "My
opponent has stated we must
continue our strategy in Iraq.
What strategy? We all support
our troops. But, how in the
world do you fight a war
where there is no strategy?"
"You cannot execute with-
out a strategy," she added.
"There 'are questions that need
to be asked and answers that
need to be given. And that has
not been happening."
"Thbre is a strategy,"
Buchanan said. "It's probably
not working."

ing on my Reading endorse-
ment, and ESOL certification
at the same time. At the MCC
program we got everything
we needed all in a short time
span. Now, I can work on
other teaching require-
ments."
Two days each week Wells
made the transformation
from teacher to student. After
finishing her last literature
class at Venice High, Wells
would drive up to the MCC
Lakewood Ranch campus
and become a student in its
alternative 'certification pro-
gram, learning more about
what to teach and how to
teach it.
Filling a shortage
Wells began volunteering
at Ashton Elementary, which
her daughter attended. A
teacher encouraged her to
apply for a job. Within a year
she was teaching at Venice
High.
"I found it very rewarding,"
Wells said. "I went home with
'warm fuzzies' at the end of
the day. I didn't go home with
'warm fuzzies' during my 14
years in banking and insur-
ance."
Wells was precisely what
MCC had in mind when it
created the program.
Many who applied for ACP
brought a wealth of experi-
ence from their former
careers. Some, like Wells, had


already entered the teaching
profession.
"It's for people who already
have a BA in something other
than education," said Susan
Sheffield, director of MCC's
Educator Preparation
Institute. "The assumption is
the candidates already have a
degree in the content area"
they would like to teach in.
MCC enrolled 40 students
for the 2005-06 inaugural
course. Six were already
teaching under a temporary
certificate.
By August 2006, 31 had
completed the program and
21 were already employed in
area schools. Eleven went
on to teach in Manatee
County, nine in Sarasota
County and one in Charlotte
County.
One of MCC's goals, said
Sheffield, is to move teachers
off temporary certification
and into a professional
license as quickly as possible.
She estimates Florida's
higher education institutions
graduate about 6,000 new
teachers annually, far short of
the 30,000 they foresee will be
needed in the next few years.
The shortage is driven pri-
marily by the class-size
amendment and retirements,
she said.
Not ideal
Sheffield admits that grad-
uating educators in a one-


year crash course has its
drawbacks.
Passing MCC's competen-
cy-based program and learn-
ing Florida Educator
Accomplished Practices is
one thing. Turning it into
magic in the classroom is
another.
In a perfect world, teacher
preparation programs should
take longer than what's
offered at most universities
today, she said.
Still, she maintains, the
ACP program is a good thing.
"The state is very anxious
to get certified teachers into
the classroom. They're try-
ing to get away from tempo-
rary certification," Sheffield
said.
"It's not the ideal situation,
but neither is having 40 kids
with one teacher."
Proud
Don't tell that to Venice
High students and adminis-
trators. They call Wells a wel-
come addition.
"Joeline is committed and
dedicated to the school and
the students," said Principal
Candy Millington. "She was
instrumental in raising read-
ing scores of the lower 25 per-
cent of our students. We're
very proud of her."

Charter amendment addresses troubling issues


In an election year marked by some of the
dirtiest campaigning we can recall, it's inter-
esting that one of the most contentious sub-
jects on the ballot is a proposed county char-
ter amendment.
Sarasota Alliance for Fair Elections got the
signatures of 5 percent of the county elec-
torate on petitions demanding a voter-verifi-
cation system for county elections.
Citing studies reporting that electronic
voting machines such as our iVotronics can
be programmed or hacked to change votes,
SAFE wants a system that will give each voter
a paper receipt.
The voter can then confirm his or her votes
were accurately recorded, and if there is any
controversy, there will be an independent
document as a check against any shenani-
gans.
Kindra Muntz, founder of SAFE, took hold
of this issue like a bulldog, urging Supervisor
of Elections Kathy Dent and the board of
county commissioners to act to protect the


integrity of county elections. They declined,
citing the lack of any evidence of problems
locally; the cost of supplementing or replac-
ing the iVotronics, which are only a few years
old; and that a scanner attachment that
would work with our machines lacks state
certification.
So, yet another election issue comes down
to a question, in part, of money.
Other principles are at play, of course. The
bedrock of any free country is the right of its
citizens to vote for whomever they want and
for those votes to be counted equally with
everyone else's. There are too many credible
studies sounding warnings about electronic
voting to dismiss.
And we think SAFE's efforts before the
petition drive were taken too lightly by gov-
ernment officials. The county commission
basically deferred to Dent who, though offi-
cially neutral on the issue, has in reality
fought it every step of the way. We applaud
her for defending her office, but she seems to


have taken the matter personally, while we
think it's about the process she has sworn to
uphold.
Which'brings us to the proposed amend-
ment itself.
As concerned as we are about the integrity
of county elections, we can't support this
amendment at this time.
Partly it's the thought of the cost of the
change, which might or might not be
recouped over time, depending on whom
you listen to.
Partly it's that we have a high level of confi-
dence in Dent's office and believe the risk of
tampering to be extremely low.
Our elections largely go off without a
hitch (the failure of the computers for vot-
ing in South County Monday not with-
standing). True, hacking would be buried
deep within microchips, but we see little
reason to think it's occurring here. And
tampering is possible in any system; when
we make a change, we should go with the


best system we-can get.
Partly it's the amendment itself. Though it
withstood judicial scrutiny, the standard for
that review favors putting issues on the ballot
unless they couldn't possibly be reconciled
with existing laws.
There are a number of potential conflicts
to be worked out and, while we think they
could be, we think it would be better to read-
dress the voter-verificatign question itself.
There will be new faces onrthe county's char-
ter review board after Nov. 7, and the candi-
dates we talked to almost unanimously said
sthe board needs to meet more often and be a
better forum to publicly air issues of great
general interest.
Kudos to Kindra Muntz and SAFE. We
hope they will stay focused on protecting our
precious right to vote, but bring us a better
solution.
We recommend voting "No" on the
Sarasota County Charter amendment on
.paper ballots.


Hanging around


the GOP hangar


MARY AY RUPPEL



It was pleasant to read the
impartial and accurate cover-
age in our Venice Gondolier
Sun of a Republican rally held
in .a hangar at the Venice
Municipal Airport.
This quite auspicious
event was not even men-
tioned in the other paper
here. I believe that its first
page was again (yawn) con-
cerning a certain Republican
Congressman who has
recently resigned from office.
Anyway, back to the
hangar. I attended because I
thought that a political event
featuring two governors was
somewhat out of the ordinary
and worth hanging around in
the sweltering heat in hopes
of meeting them.
What really impressed me
was the enthusiastic presence
of three recently defeated
candidates: Nancy Detert,
Rory Du'bin and Mark
Flanagan. I was particularly
impressed at Nancy's pres-
ence, as this was a rally for the
candidate who had beaten
her by a narrow margin for
the Republican nomination
for the congressional seat
being, vacated by Katherine
Harris.
Nancy is a gifted speaker
and had everyone laughing at
her humorous comments
when introducing Gov. Jeb
Bush.
Gov. Bush looked "bushed"
to me. His face. was a little
flushed and his kelly-green
necktie looked like it had
been selected for a St. Paddy's
Day event. His speech was
very positive and garnered
much applause and many
cheers from the crowd.
Maybe I was being too


analytical, but his demeanor
seemed to me slightly less
cheerful than usual. The pos-
sibility has occurred to me
that he may have wanted to
run for senator in opposition
to Bill Nelson. It would have
been a logical segue from the
governorship. Maybe we will
learn some day why his sup-
port of Katherine Harris was
not more forthcoming.
, Massachusetts Governor
Mitt Romney looked re-
freshed, and he is very hand-
some. It was mentioned that
he was thrilled to be in Venice
coming out of 45-degree
weather in Boston.
When I got to shake his
hand, he had that nice quality
of looking directly into your
eyes as you spoke. Naturally, I
told him that his dad, George
Romney, had been the gover-
nor when I was growing up in
Detroit. He asked me what
area I was from, so he was
actually listening. I like it
when a man listens to me.
There is always a pulsating
undercurrent of drama at any
political event and it never
ceases to amaze me that any-
one would want to hold a
public office.
I admire every Democrat,
Republican or other party
affiliate who seeks public
office. I believe in my heart
that almost without excep-
tion they are real patriots who
want to make America a bet-
ter place in which to live.
A lot of our local candi-
dates' families were in atten-
dance. It is so difficult for the
spouses and families of can-
didates during a campaign,
between stress and bad press,
it could drive you crazy.
There was a wonderful
barbershop quartet perform-
ing at the rally and they sure
struck the right note when
they serenaded me with "Let
me call you sweetheart."
Thanks, guys, I needed
that!

Editor:
I just returned from trying to vote early at the Robert L.
Anderson Building Oct. 24. I say trying because, despite the
affirmations by those in the Sarasota Elections Office, the vot-
ing process by computers is terribly flawed.
To wit: I, along with others trying to cast ballots this day,
could not do so because the computers were down.
Can you imagine such a thing happening? Well, the Sarasota
Alliance for Fair Elections has been warning all along that com-
puters are not the solution for expediting the voting process,
and now there is concrete proof-- on this day and at this time
- that we no longer have to imagine such a catastrophe.
I was turned away from voting; there was no back-up sys-
tem in place, apparently.
When I was in the classroom teaching Civics to teenage stu-
dents, I always emphasized that our country was distinguished
from others by our Constitutional rights. One of the most cher-
ished of these has been our right to vote.
So, I will continue to try to exercise this right during this
election season. And I'll be sure to mark my ballot in favor of
"the paper trail." That way, I can be reassured that a computer
breakdown during an election will not deprive me of my right
to vote.

The ethics and wisdom of growth


JIM CLINCH
GUEST (01.NI'04'


As the new chairman of the
board of the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce, I
would like to take a moment
to remind folks what our
hometown chamber of com-
merce is and what we do.
Let me begin by explaining
what we are not.
We are not some kind of
municipal department or
agency. We're not a part of the
government in any way and
we do not receive any tax dol-
lars. Our members pay our
bills through their dues,
sponsorships and donations.
We are not a social or fra-
ternal club. We're not the Elks
or the Moose or the
Daughters of the American
Revolution. These are all great
organizations, but we exist for
a different reason.
We are not a civic organi-
zation. We're not Sertoma or
Rotary or Kiwanis. Again,


each is a fine organization
doing good work, but their
mission is not our mission.
The Venice Area Chamber
of Commerce, like any cham-
ber of commerce, exists for
the sole purpose of growing
our members' businesses.
Period.
Sure, we have meetings,
forums and events that are a
lot of fun, like our popular
annual Business, Expo. We
sponsor the Better Business
Department, which helps
resolve consumer com-
plaints. We even host semi-
nars about hurricane pre-
paredness and crime preven-
tion.
All these events, programs
and services, however, exist
only in support of our mission:
"To help our member busi-
nesses grow and prosper."
Everyone in Venice,
Nokomis, Laurel, Osprey,
South, East and now North
Venice benefits enormously
from the chamber's work.
We help make successful
local businesses, and suc-
cessful businesses generate
more tax revenue, hire more
people who also pay taxes,
help attract tourists and new
residents who pay taxes, and
make our community a nicer
place to be.
A prosperous business
community is the revenue-

generating mechanism that
keeps the South County run-
ning.
We represent some 1,200
member businesses through-
out our local area. Because of
our numbers, we have a
strong voice local, county
and state government offi-
cials listen to our suggestions
and concerns.
We do not endorse politi-
cal candidates, but we speak
out in support of issues that
affect our members. We lobby
aggressively for the interests
of our local businesspeople
and we strive to be a catalyst
for constructive change and
common sense.
For the consumer, our suc-
cess brings more choice, bet-
ter quality and lower prices
resulting from more competi-
tion in the good, old free mar-
ket. We want local residents to
have more places to shop,
dine, wash their car, get their
carpets cleaned or whatever.
Does that mean we are a,
"pro-growth" group? Yes, we
are.
Economic growth is a great
thing. Atrophy and stagna-
tion are bad things. What kind
of business person doesn't
want to grow their business?
What consumer wants fewer
choices?
We want our local real
estate agents and gift shops


and banks and restaurants -
and, yes, builders and devel-
opers, too to become more
prosperous both by being
more efficient and by attract-
ing more customers. And we
don't want them to grow just
by stealing existing customers
from a competitor.
We know growth is a con-
troversial topic and that there
are problems that need fixing
in a popular, growing com-
munity like ours. But what is
the alternative?
Do we want to trade places
with one of those "rust belt"
cities up North where the
population is stagnant or
declining? No thanks!
None of us wants to dam-
age the wonderful quality of
life we enjoy in our commu-
nity, but we must all .recog-
nize that change is unavoid-
able in a free society.
We believe there are com-
mon-sense solutions to the
challenges we face, and your
hometown Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce will
continue to promote positive
change that will benefit busi-
nesses, consumers, visitors
and taxpayers.
If you've never been by our
office, please visit the cham-
ber at 597 South Tamiami
Trail. We are right across the
street from Venice Regional
Medical Center.

The real thanks should go

No nukes is good nukes
Editor:
The president of Iran
believes he is creating an


Islamic superpower that will
bring down the West, includ-
ing the United States. He says
he will have hundreds of mil-

I am very concerned and
our country really needs to
take a stand against the
nuclear proliferation. Nuclear
proliferation is one of the
greatest dangers to world
peace.
We must act to stop Iran

Sanzone approaches the sec-
ond anniversary of his open-
ing on the Sun Coast.

Responding to customer
requests, he is introducing to-
go items in new display cabi-
nets with cookies and deserts.
"I hope to get everything

Marcus felt that "Reef"
implied a place to enjoy your-
self.
Originally from St Louis,
she has lived in Florida for 30
years, working in restaurants
on Siesta Key and at Shells in
Sarasota. Her husband and
colleagues built the original
Dona Bay Honoluana Tiki

Mel's introduces
new menu
James Rodriquez, the new
franchisee of Mel's Diner,
1763 South Tamiami Trail,
arrived in August and a
month later married Alison,
manager of the restaurant, on
Venice beach.
Born in Brooklyn and
raised in Harlem, he spent six
years in the U.S. Coast Guard
before joining Marriott,
entering the restaurant busi-
ness in 1987. He managed the
Roy Rogers location in the
World Trade Center before
moving to Florida, joining
Mel's Diner as regional man-
ager.
"We are focusing on
guests, providing an
enhanced menu with a pas-
sionate, attentive service,"
said Rodriquez.
Cruzin to the Hop, orga-
nized by Lance Hubschmitt,
is a special car show attract-
ing 200 vehicles. It's held 5-9.

Good rain, no canes
helps citrus
Nokomis Groves, Albee
SFarm Road, Nokomis, opens


its store again on Nov. 1.
"We will have a good selec-
tion of navel oranges, Falglo
tangerines, red and pink
seedless grapefruit," said
Brenda Kemerer, vice presi-
dent.
She confirmed the crop of
early Falglo tangerines and
navel oranges was affected
statewide by the spring
drought, until on June 1 the
much-needed rainy season
came and, luckily, no hurri-
canes struck.
There will be no across-
the-board price hikes, al-
though in some fruit there
will be slight price increases
as is usual at this time, of the
year.
For the first time they are
publishing two full brochures
with new items. The full fall
issue is being mailed now and
a full spring issue will be
mailed later in the season.
Copies will be available in the
store.
Although staff vacancies
have been filled, Kemerer is
looking for additional ship-
ping and packing employees.
Christmas-order packing
starts on Dec. 1 and the latest
dates for mailing will be Dec.
15 and 16.
Ice cream will continue to
be available all year.
Seasonal store hours will
be 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday
through Saturday. Call 488-

New nautical Web site
Naval Academy graduate
and avid sailor Joe Monroe
has been in the nautical busi-
ness for years, operating with
wife Claire their popular
marine .hardware store, The.
Nautical Trader of the Gulf
Coast, 110 East Colonia Lane,
Nokomis.
With most of the inventory
on consignment he had an
abundance of propellers in so
many different sizes and
shapes, he realized there had
to be a better way for boaters
to communicate to exchange
items. Now he has resolved
the situation by building his
own Web site, where boaters
can communicate not only
locally, but worldwide as they
seek to exchange items.
The site, nauticaltrader-
.com, is already attracting
much interest, just as his
other online project, nautical-

Venice resident Troy
Grieco is rejuvenating a pop-
ular trend with his new pro-
ject, Chilly Willie's.
Touring the city, he will
give kids an opportunity most
have not experienced buy-
ing ice cream from his fitted-
out Chilly Willie's ice cream
truck as-he makes- regular
stops in their neighborhoods.


The brightly decorated
white truck has photographs
of the whole range of high
quality ice cream, novelty
brands, sodas and candy he
will sell.
Chilly Willie's is named
after a cartoon penguin from
the'50s, ChillyWilly.
Originally a vice president

Jersey, Grieco-wants to-build'
relationships with people as


he goes through his routes
serving kids, families and

Using a remote inventory
system throughout the area,
he will visit new construction
during the mornings and
communities and neighbor-
hoods in the afternoons.
Starting with one ice
cream truck, he ultimately
expects to have three to five


Look out for Chilly Willie's
at larger functions, like the
Venice Holiday Parade of

Starbucks deal finally confirmed


GRAPHIC COURTESY OF STARBUCKS
The design for the first Venice stand-alone Starbucks Coffee
Shop, to be built at the southwest corner of Center Road and
U.S. 41 Bypass.


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Good news for coffee-
holics: Starbucks is definitely
coming to Venice.
"It's full speed ahead, and
we expect to be breaking
ground the middle of Nov-
ember," said Tom Sivertsen,
president of, Sivertsen Com-
mercial Real Estate.
He said that dealing with
the tricky comer location at
Center Road and U.S. 41
Bypass took much longer
than originally anticipated.
The Florida Department of
Transportation confirmed
last week its approval of the
required right-turn lane
southbound on the bypass,
and additional permits are
being issued. Site and devel-
opment plans are being final-
ized by Sivertsen's engineer
and architect.


The contractor, Don
Sutherland of Beyond Design
Contracting Inc. of Sarasota,
will start by tearing down the
former Texaco gas station on
the site in front of Office
Depot and SteinMart at the
Venice Marketplace.
The projected completion
date is June 1 for the 1,800-
square-foot Starbucks restau-
rant. It will have indoor and
outdoor patio seating and a
drive-through service.
A corporate tenant and a
new office for property owner
Sivertsen Commercial Real
Estate will share the property
with the coffee shop.
The Target store in South
Venice is currently construct-
ing an in-store Starbucks, to
open Nov. 6, replacing the
store's former cafe.

New name, new theme for store


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

The Appliance Depot &
More name is disappearing
this year, to be replaced by
'American Homes for Less,"
as owners DEP Marketing
LLC revamps the stores and
concentrates on specific
product lines.
Heralding the changeover
is the new American red,
white and blue image, both
inside and outside the stores.
Renovations at the Venice
location are under way; it is
expected to open in early
November.
"We're very much in the
appliance business, but with
a broader name we will offer
much more," said Barry Cook,
chief financial officer of DEP
Marketing LLC.


Twelve months ago the
principals decided to analyze
the appliance, electronics,
motion furniture and bed-
ding markets in Southwest
Florida. The decision was that
"Appliance Depot & More"
did not describe all their
products.
In addition, their study
concluded that a name
change would better identify
the stores in their retail mar-
ket, which primarily is prod-
ucts for the American home.
They decided to play on the
American theme, starting by
redoing both the interior and
exterior of a Sarasota store in
red, white and blue with
excellent results.
DEP has decided to follow
in the footsteps of its bigger
competitors, Best Buy and
Circuit City, which both


undertook similar successful
exercises.
"We want to be open for
the season and the snowbirds
with our new inventory,
which will give more empha-
sis to big-screen televisions,
mobile furniture for enter-
tainment rooms with couch-
es and relaxing chairs plus
our selection of appliances
and bedding," said Cook.
Appliance Depot & More
opened in 2003 with two loca-
tions and currently operates
seven stores with two in the
planning stages, taking its
revenue to $20 million in
2005.
Store changeovers to the
American red, white and blue
theme began in March; Port
Charlotte, Sarasota, Engle-
wood and Avon Park stores
have been completed.

A man who "killed an
acquaintance during a fight
in August will not face murder
charges.
On Tuesday, Assistant State
Attorney Lon Arend said
David Dpdd, 36, was justified
in using deadly force, to
defend himself, and did not
have a duty to retreat.
Dodd was arrested onAug. 1
by North Port police after he
allegedly told responding offi-
cers he stabbed and killed Jerry
J. Koenig, 44, of Warm Mineral


Springs, at 5180 Trott Circle.
Arend said the fight started
because of. a relationship
Dodd was having with
Koenig's ex-wife. Koenig
broke into Dodd's living area
and started to beat Dodd,
who was on his bed. Dodd
grabbed a knife lying near his
bed and stabbed Koenig.
The SAO's investigation
report said Dodd had exten-
sive injuries to his head and
face consistent with being
substantially battered by
Koenig. The report said that
aside from the two stab
wounds, Koenig's only other

injuries were bruising on the
knuckles of his right hand.
Koenig had a blood alcohol
content of.13, indicatinghewas
under the influence at the time
of his death, according to the
report. It also said Koenig's
blood tested positive for
cocaine. It was determined that
Koenig consumed the cocaine
hours before his death.
"Based upon the available
evidence, it is clear that
Koenig unlawfully and
forcibly entered the living
area of Dodd," Arend said.
"'(According to Florida


Quality Used Furniture
Antiques Collectibles & Gifts
Florida's Largest
60,000 sq.ft.
Booth Space4 Avialable


statutes), Dodd is presumed
to have a reasonable fear of
death or great bodily harm."
Arend said he contacted
the medical examiner's office,
which told him there is no
physical evidence from the
autopsy that contradicts the
finding of self defense. Arend
also said he spoke with North
Port detectives, who he said
told him there was no credi-
ble evidence to dispute the
claim of self defense.
Dodd has moved to Rhode
Island and was unavailable
for comment.

-a Plant vs. Venice A match of.major proportions


Regional semifinal is Saturday at the Teepee


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Smith scores

another TD

Scoring touchdowns is get-
ting to be a habit for Auburn's
Tre Smith.
Smith, the former Venice
High standout, scored a spe-
cial teams touchdown against
Florida Oct. 14. He returned a
blocked punt for aTD.
This past Saturday against
Tulane, Smith scored on
offense. He got into the end
zone on a six-yard pass from
quarterback Brandon Cox in
the second quarter.
Smith was productive on
"0" against the Green Wave.
He gained 44 yards on five car-
ries and grabbed two passes
good for 22 yards.
Auburn improved to 7-1
with a 38-13 victory. The Tigers
are at Ole Miss this Saturday.
Smith hopes his number is
called on against the Rebels.

Brad Allen is getting into
the offensive flow for the
Vanderbilt Commodores. The
sophomore tight end caught
his second pass of the season
last Saturday against South
Carolina. This time, he picked
up 27 yards.
Vanderbilt lost 31-13 and
saw its record fall to 3-5. The
Commodores are at Duke this
Saturday.

The Venice High football
team is off this Friday night.
The Indians will finish up the
regular season next Friday,
Nov. 3, against Naples. It will
be a home game for the
Indians, who would like to fin-
ish the season on a winning
note.
Cardinal Mooney, which
has five players from Venice
on its roster, is back in action
after a bye last week. The
Cougars will be looking to
improve to 9-0 with a home
game Friday night against a
good Clearwater Central
Catholic squad.
Another good game will
unfold Friday night at
Lakewood Ranch. The Ranch
and Charlotte will fight it out.
to see who gets the final play-
off spot from District 11.


Cross country

district meet

Friday in Alva

STAFF REPORT

The Venice High boys and
girls cross country teams will
travel to Caloosahatchee
Regional Park in Alva on
Friday for the Class 3A District
6 Meet.
There will be 16 schools at
the meet. The top eight teams
will advance to the regional
meet on Saturday, Nov. 4, in
Fort Myers.
The girls race will go off
first at 8:30 a.m. The boys race,
will be at 9:15 a.m.
The Lady Indians are com-
ing off a second-place show-
ing in the Sarasota County
Meet last week.
Coach Brenda Clark has
lost top runner Sarah Britton
for the season due to injury.
The Lady Indians are still
looking to advance, however.
The Indian boys are led by
Ben Thomas.


It took three months to get
here, but could it really have
been any other way?
Both the Plant High and
Venice High volleyball teams
have had Saturday, Oct. 28,
circled on their calendars for
some time now.
The two knew that, barring
any earth-shattering upsets,
they would be facing off in the
Class 5A Region 3 semifinals.
The matchup between the
No. 1 (Plant) and No. 3
(Venice) ranked teams in 5A
will take place at 2 p.m.
Saturday at the Teepee.
The match could be a sell-
out. Fans are urged to buy
their tickets early. The booth
outside the gym will be open
at 10:30 a.m. Saturday.
Plant (24-2) and Venice
(25-4) know each other well.
The two teams met Oct. 7
in the finals of the Tampa Bay
Invitational at the University
of Tampa. Plant won in three
straight games.
"That was one of our poor-
est matches of the year," said
Venice assistant coach Gary
Halbert. "Earlier we played St.
Thomas Aquinas. We played
four tough games and then
we had to wait to play Plant."
Plant dominated.
"We didn't move very well
against them," Halbert said.
"It was like we were intimidat-
ed."
Venice shouldn't have
been.
Last year, Venice went up
to Tampa and shocked Plant
in a memorable five-game
match in-- you guessed it -
the region semifinals.
Plant was seriously
bummed. Coach Leanne
Taylor thought she had a state
championship caliber squad.


Venice returned all but one
-Dana Dumas-from its
state championship team.
Plant lost two starters to,
graduation.
Freshmen are -filling the
void. Madi Martin-the
daughter of TV Channel 8
news anchor Gail Sierens-
is an upstart outside hitter.
The starting libero is also a
ninth grader.,
Plant's best all-around
player is senior outside hitter
Jen Chamblee. Kelly Cata-
nach stands 6-3 and was All-
State last year. The big hitters
are 6-2 Kaley Read and 5-10
Christine Williamson. The lat-
ter, another All-State selec-
tion, is University of Miami-
bound.
Venice has its own All-
Staters in outside hitter
Natalie Gaudreau, setter
Nickie Halbert and libero Julie
Howlett.
The rest of the cast has
stepped up to make a run at a
state title repeat.
First, they'll have to get
past Saturday and Plant.'
"We have to block better.
We have to pass better,"
Halbert said.

There will be a pre-match
tailgate party beginning at
11:30 a.m. Saturday outside
the gym. There will be food,
drink and entertainment.
Venice head coach Brian
Wheatley will be the guest
speaker at this Tuesday's
Linebacker Club luncheon at
the Honoluana Island Grill at
the airport. The Linebacker
Club usually features football,
but the Indian grid team has a
bye this week, so they'll talk
volleyball. The Linebacker
Club meets at noon. Lunch is
$12.
Everyone is invited to
attend.

Girls golfers miss second by one stroke


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High girls golf
team had an impressive
round on the first day of the
Class 2A State Finals in Port
St. Lucie.
Then they went out and
played even better the second
half of the tournament at The
Saints Golf Course on
Wednesday.
But when looking at the
final leaderboard, the Lady
Indians reacted with tears,
silent stares and dejection.
Venice missed out placing
second in the state by one
stroke.
Lake Mary made up a
three-stroke deficit after day
one and inched out the Lady
Indians for the second place
trophy.
Only the top two teams at
states receive hardware.
No doubt, all five of the
Lady Indians were thinking of
a shot they could have picked
up in the second round.
In reality, they should be
proud finishing third out of 16
schools.
For the record, sizzling
Lake Howell was first with a


team score of 587. Lake Mary
had a 624 and Venice a 625.
Team scores go by the top
four girls on each team for
each day.
Casey Kennedy led the
Lady Indians with a four over
par 75-73-148. Consistent
Crystal Smith was next with a
75-75-150. Megan Clipse
followed up her round of 75
Tuesday with an 80 on
Wednesday. Katie Kennedy
scored 88 on Tuesday and got
it down to 84 Wednesday.
Helene Gagliardi improved
her first day 95 to a 93.
Still, the improvement was
overshadowed by one stroke.
After the first day, Venice
was in second place with a
score of 313. Lake Marywas at
316.
Venice, which won district
and regional tournaments to
qualify for states, shot a 312
on the second day.
Lake Mary made it up with
a 308.
The medalist for the tour-
nament was Alex Buelow of
Martin County, who fired a six
under par 71-65-136.
Last year, the Venice girls
made the state tournament
and finished seventh.

Unusual things


in local waters


Are you seeing and hear-
ing about strange and
unusual happenings recent-
ly? Could it be the approach
of Halloween? Perhaps the
frequency of red tide?
Here are a few examples.
The fish seem to be turned
on in one area and in anoth-
er basically nothing. This
could be the effects of RT/E
Maybe they search for clean
water and then gorge them-
selves.
The last two times I visit-
ed our jetties, the fishing
stunk in more ways than
one. Yet, I am told by several
fishermen how good their
fishing has been fairly close
by.
I met a fisherman the
other day that informed me
how well he was doing in
the intracoastal near the
Venice Jetty. He said they
caught numerous nice
sheepshead. He said he
caught all of his sheepies
close to the shore in or next
to the rocks.
With that in mind I went
to my top secret spot for
early season sheepies. I
fished for one hour with a
few teeth marks on my sand
fleas. That was it. He did tell
me what time of the day
they were biting. So I
checked the tides and real-
ized that it was on the
incoming tide. I'll try it
again in a few days with the
incoming tide.
Some more unusual
occurrences. The Cape
Coral canal fishing has been
excellent.
They are catching just
about everything. I spoke to
several fishermen who said
they weren't catching big
numbers of sheepies, but
were catching huge ones.
I kept hearing the same


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
FISHING COLUMNIST


stories in every bait shop I
visited last week.
Besides the sheepies,
they're tearing up the
schools of jacks that are
feeding on the glass min-
nows. That's not all they're
catching. Mangrove snap-
pers, ladyfish, bluefish,
snook, redfish and more.
One gentleman brought
in a Bomber to show the
owner the teeth marks from
the jacks and blues.
The store owners all say
the same thing. The fish find
the clean water and min-
nows and gorge themselves.
Maybe the same thing will
happen here.
The secret is not to give
up and stay away from the
water.
I've done this several
times through the years. The
end result would be that I'd
miss several days of a run of
fish.
With this passing front,
maybe the drop in water
temperature will turn the
fish on. ,
Well fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to
say goodbye until next
week,
Dave Hack/Mr. Sheep-
shead can be contacted at

Prescribed burns scheduled along 1-75 Red flag warning

OMs.-i"msmTswI issued for area


BYALYSSASCHNUGG
STAFF WRITER


Recent drier air and cooler
temperatures are great for
outside activities but they
could also increase the risk of
brush fires.
On Tuesday, the National
Weather Service issued a red
flag warning and fire weather
watch for Southwest Florida.
A red flag warning is issued
when conditions are favor-
able for wildfires. A fire
weather watch is issued when
there is the potential for more
than four hours of humidity
below 35 percent.
State Division of Forestry
supervisor Quint Keys said it's
a bit early in the season to
have such dry conditions, but
not out of the ordinary.
"This time of year we tend
to start drying out until we get
some more cold fronts com-
ing in that bring rain with


Controlled burns like this one are planned for more than 500 acres north and south of 1-75 near North Port and Warm Mineral
Springs.


them," he said Tuesday. "But
we aren't in any real danger
yet."
According to the National
Weather Service, dry and cold
air should continue over the
area until another cold front
moves into the area Friday,
increasing the chance of rain
to 30 percent fr Southwest
Florida.
The Keetch-Bryam drought
index is a scale that ranges from
0 to 800 and estimates the dry-
ness of soil and duff layers.
Charlotte County's drought
index was 464 on Tuesday.
Sarasota County was 456 and
DeSoto was the highest at 491.
The indexincreases for each day
there is no rain.
"People should be a little
extra cautious," Keys said.

STAFF REPORT

Approximately 70 percent
of home fire deaths result
from fires in the home with
no smoke alarms, or no work-
ing smoke alarms.
Smoke alarms can save
lives, but only when they are
working properly. A properly
installed and maintained
smoke alarm will provide an
early warning signal to your
household providing the
chance to escape..
According to Sarasota
County Fire Marshal Jane
Ross, these safety tips could
save lives:
Install smoke alarms on
every level of your home. For
extra safety, install smoke
alarms both inside and out-
side any sleeping areas, espe-
cially if you sleep with your
bedroom door closed.
Make a habit to replace


the batteries in your smoke
alarm when you change your
clocks for the time change.
Make sure to mark Oct. 29 on
your calendar.
.* Keep smoke alarms clean.
Dust can interfere with howyour
smoke alarm works. Regularly
vacuum over your smoke alarm.
Replace the battery right
away. The "chirping" noise
you may hear could mean
your battery is low.
Replace your smoke
alarms about every 10 years.
They do wear out, so write the
purchase date with a marker
on the back of your smoke
alarm. That way you know
when it should be replaced.
If you can't afford a smoke
alarm, the Sarasota County Fire
Prevention Office can provide a
smoke alarm to you. This pro-
gram is available to keep you
safe. For more information, call
861-5000.

1 Tired of trying to make your way around
that old blender, bassinet, those bikes and boxes of
cast-off clothing? Schedule a garage sale to convert
those extra items into cash.


2. Ask your friends if they want to join in. More
merchandise means more shoppers and more money
for everyone.


3. Clean and polish your items. Fold clothes
neatly and arrange them by size and gender. Group
small pieces (like jewelry) together into plastic bags
so they're easy to price and display.


Arrange for plenty of tables and hanging
items so you can display everything prominently.
When it's time, set up your sale so people can move
around easily.


5 Make a list of your best items, and then call
The Sun Classified to schedule your ad. Your ad rep
can help-you create an ad that's sure to get customers
calling!


Through The Sun Classified, you'll send the
news of your sale to thousands of potential buyers.
So, get out your change box and get ready to sell!

BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER


Diane Ahlquist always knew she would do something spe-
cial.
Despite being a psychic, she had no premonition she
would become a writer.
Ahlquist, now an Englewood resident, has lived in Florida
for some time. She is a third-generation psychic and first -
generation author.
Her life as a psychic has led her down a variety of paths.
Having done individual readings for many years, Ahlquist got
into writing. Never having wrinen before, she approached the
task with gusto.
"How hard can it be?" she said
Ahlquist is the author of three books: "White Light," "Moon
Spells" and "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Fortune Telling."
With Ahlquist's third book, she became a mainstream writer.
She has become a part of the group of authors for the
Complete Idiot's Guide series, a division of the Penguin
Group.
The book on fortune telling was destined to be, according
to Ahlquist.
"I was looking to write comedic books about romance,"
she said.
Ahlquist had completed a book entitled, "30 Days to
Finding a Mate," which was rejected by many agents.
Undaunted, Ahlquist kept plugging away, trying to get picked
up by an agent.
It was the agent who rejected her romance book who
approached her about the book on fortune telling. Ahlquist
felt it was fate that she would still write in the body, mind and
spirit genre.
The Complete Idiot's Guide publishers gave Ahlquist three
months to complete the book, which she said was a grueling
amount of work in very little time.
Fortunately,. her grandmother saved a lot of old books on
fortune telling, which served as great reference material.
Ahlquist is currently working on "The Complete Idiot's
Guide to Life After Death." For this book, she cannot be as
lighthearted as she is in life and in her other books. The book
encompasses all of the world's religions and their viewpoints
concerning life after death.
Messages from nature
Ahlquist lives in Englewood In a home overlooking a canal.
Her entire house is arranged according to feng shul princi-
ples. (Feng shui is an Eastern philosophy that encompasses
the positioning of objects to ensure positive energy flow.)
Observing the boats that line the canal, one would think it
was the home of a boater, not a psychic.
"I like to be on the water," she said.
A window facing west provides her great enjoyment.
"I get to watch the sun go down and the moon rise,"
Ahlquist said.
She spent a lot of time in the south-
west and thinks the area is
one of the most
magical

Psychic Diane Ahlquist of Englewood is developing a national reputation.

places on Earth. She lived in Sedona, Ariz., for a while, and
she learned a lot from the people who lived there. She
believes Native Americans recognize things in nature that
other people have forgotten or ignored.
Nature is a source of power for Ahlquist. She often gets
messages from the wind or trees. She said if someone is feel-
ing unbalanced, he or she should do something to get more
in tune with nature, like work in a garden or be near trees.
Ahlquist believes that anyone can become more intuitive if
they spend more time in nature.
Life as a psychic
Ahlquist uses playing cards and tarot cards, pendulums,
crystal balls, tea leaves and coffee grounds to help her with
divination.
When in coffee shops it is tempting for Ahlquist to tell
someone his future by what she sees in the coffee grounds.
She never does.
Ahlquist doesn't believe it's odd that she can see people's
futures because it is natural for her.


Ghosts
Al-dquist is an avid ghost-hunter. While she knows ghosts
can't hurt her, she said they freak her out.
"Like Sylvia Browne, I have to sleep with a nightlight
on," Ahlquist said. "And, I can't write about ghosts at
night."

Ahlquist believes the world's energy is calmer at
night, making it easier to see and feel ghosts.
She also believes ghosts are not the ones who shake
and rattle things in houses. She believes when tensions
are high in a home, people can create an energy that is
capable of moving things and creating blurs out of the
corner of people's eyes.
e


Ahlquist is no stranger to the limelight. She has done her
share of interviews and book tours. She recently had an-inter-
view with TV commentator Alan Colmes of"Hannity and
Colmes."
"They were pretty hard on me," AhJquist said about the

SUZY COHEN, R. PH.
COLUMNIST

Q: I used to be in such
good health, strong as a bull,
and now my muscles are so sore
and I ache all over. I take the fol-
lowing medications: metformin
(Glucophage) for diabetes, flu-
oxetine (Prozac) for depression,
metoprolol (Lopressor) for high
blood pressure and lovastain
(Mevacor) for cholesterol.
Sometimes I take Sonata to
sleep. Can anything. take be
causing this? I.W., Boise,
Idaho

A. Yes, all of the medica-
tions you take can cause ach-
iness, muscle pain and joint
pain, sometimes in debilitat-
ing ways. But I want .to be


careful not to pin all the
blame on your medications,
because'your medical condi-
tions themselves can also
make you feel poorly. So how
do you sift out the cause of
discomfort when it could be
the chicken or the egg? Very
hard to do.
It's safe to say that a person
suffering from cardiovascular
disease, high blood pressure
and high cholesterol may be
deficient in certain nutrients,
such as folic acid, magne-
sium, vitamin C and coen-
zyme Q10, and possibly L-
camitine and others as well.
It's fascinating that the very
drugs used to treat these con-
ditions can deplete some of
these nutrients, which in turn.
'causes symptoms that
require even more prescrip-
tions!
The plot thickens if I ask
you what you eat, I'm betting
that you don't get six servings
of fresh fruits and vegetables
a day. I'm also betting that,
like most Americans, much of
what you ingest is processed,
preserved or full of pesticides.
It's hard to get around that
anymore, and I only point it
out because cleaning up your-
diet would enable you to
"birth" healthier cells and tis-

sue that is rejuvenated and
refreshed. The free-radical
damage from processed
foods can lead to feelings of
achiness, pain and fatigue, as
well as heart disease and can-
cer.
Can we talk about hor-
mones too? If you are in your
mid-40s, your levels of testos-
terone are going down. This
could be another reason for a
man's loss of muscle strength
and stamina, as well as. achi-
ness, erectile dysfunction and
low sex drive.
Here's what I tell people
who take blood pressure pills
and- heart medications: Get
yourself on the nutrients that
are depleted by those drugs..
That means taking some
high-quality CoQ10O (100 mg
once or twice daily, if you can
afford it); folic acid, a B vita-
min (800 mcg), taken with a
full B-complex (50 mg) every
morning to get the best
effects; buffered vitamin C
(500 mg twice daily); L-cami-
tine (500 mg twice daily); and


fish oils (1,000 mg EPA/DHA,
with meals). In addition, ask
your doctor about taking
magnesium citrate (200 mg
once or twice daily). It helps
with depression and regulates
blood pressure, and it's sold
over the counter.
Watch it, though. Your
blood pressure may come
down on all this, so be aware
that medication side' effects
become more apparent as
your body becomes more effi-
cient. Your pressure may drop
too low and you may feel
faint.
And drink your greens if
you won't eat them fresh.
They're sold at health food
stores. Get one sweetened
with stevia no artificial
sweeteners like Splenda or
aspartame.

N 1 causing a great deal of pain,
numbness, tingling, or weakness,
i all of which are symptoms of conditions
such as sciatica. Other disc-related
1 problems, including arthritis, degenerative
disc disease, spinal stenosis, and facet
syndrome, are so painful and debilitating
that sufferers often turn to surgery for relief.
However, there is a non-surgical option that
merits serious consideration as a first-line
treatment for these, and other, disc-related
problems. Spinal decompression therapy is a
program that involves the use of FDA-
approved non-surgical equipment to relieve
stresses on spinal architecture. Studies
indicate that spinal decompression therapy
has at least a 70-percent success rate.
Before opting for surgery, consider this
effective, non-invasive procedure.

P.S. A full course of spinal 'decompression
therapy takes between four and eight weeks
(30-45 minutes per session) depending on
the condition being treated.

Infamous
There's more to the Truman
Capote story than you know, given the
riveting contradictions in his character,
the rich range of people who made up
his circle and the comic and dramatic


turns that-marked the period. The grad-
ual but ultimate shift from light to dark,
from comic to tragic, match the shape
of Capote's life: his early years were
marked by his insouciant wit and effer-
vescence, his outrageous self-asser-
tion, and the beguiling, almost sunny
pleasure he took in conquering the
world. These were succeeded by the
later years 01 birterhes, a failure to
produce the work he promised, a break
with friends, reckless and ill-chosen
love affairs, and a debilitating taste for
drink and pills that only hastened his
decline. It is that shift, from the tri-
umphant,to the tragic, that "Infamous"
chronicles. Featuring Toby Jones,
Sandra Bullock, Peter Bogdonovich, Jeff
Daniels, Gwyneth Paltrow, Isabella
Rossellini, Juliet Stevenson and
Sigourney Weaver.

HOROSCOPE Oct 27 30


ARIES (March 21-April
19). You're contem-
plating something
you're not sure you can afford.
Once you take the leap, you
find the money for it. Also,
there is great potential in your
dealings with a Virgo.

& TAURUS (April 20-May
20).Though you want
to be there for your
,friend, you must first stay true
to your own plan. When you're
on track with what you want
to do, everyone else falls into
your schedule quite nicely.


^ GEMINI (May 21-June
21). You're readying
yourself for a wonder-
ful weekend. Attention to your
environment renews your
senses and your spirit. For
instance, tear out the dusty
rug and install the clean tile
floors of your dreams.

@% CANCER (June 22-July
22). It's the perfect -
time to make a career
adjustment. If the 9-to-5 grind
is making you ill, look deep
inside yourself to find your
true occupational calling. Also,
a keen investment.allows you
to make money in your sleep.


f LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
4/ The stars highlight
your need to nurture
other life forms. Just because
you've killed a few plants in
your time doesn't mean you're
an enemy to flower- and
fauna-kind. Try again.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
S22). You get what you
expect. So keep those
expectations high, and more
importantly, let the people
around you know exactly what
they are. A Capricorn person is
a valuable resource for more
than financial help.

Revegetate
Venice beachgoers who
know all about nourishing and
renourishing beaches will
understand the scope of the
restoration work recently com-
pleted across the state in St.
Lucie County, on South
Hutchinson Island. Along the
stretch of dune from
Normandy Beach to the Martin
County line, 164,646 plants
were recently planted. The
work was needed in the after-
math of hurricanes Frances
and Jeanne, which left the
dunes in need of restoration.
The state contributed $4 mil-
lion and FEMA $1 million for
the dunes to be restored. The
state DEP contributed an addi-
tional $226,000 to revegetate
the dunes. Many of the area
hotels and condominiums also
worked on their beach fronts in
conjunction with the County's
re-vegetation of the restored
dunes.
Another similarity to Venice
was the fact that those beaches
and the Venice area beaches


are home to nesting sea turtles.
In Venice, volunteers stood by
ready to move nests from areas
in need of renourishment. In
St., Lucie, areas with estab-
lished nests were left to be
revegetated on another day.
One such area is the Blind
Creek dune area, which will be
reshaped prior to the installa-
tion of the plantings. Plantings
along the Dollman Park dune
were completed the first week

Chabad of Venice


to launch new


series of classes


BY RABBI SHOLOM
SCHMERLING
GUEST WRITER
Did you ever wonder who
first discovered the universe?
If there's an answer, it's-in
this book of Beraishit.
Beraishit "Genesis" is
the origin of all things.
Beraishit is the first record of
our universe and humanity's
first encounter with themes
such as time and space, life
and death, jealousy, greed
and murder, love, kindness
and forgiving.
"Origins," a weekly parsha
class instructed by Rabbi
Sholom, is a 12-part series on
the book of Beraishit that
explores these concepts. This
class series is part of the
Jewish Learning Institute,
which is geared for Jews of all
backgrounds seeking a deep-
er understanding and appre-
ciation of Jewish thought,
heritage and tradition. '
The JLI will offer a thor-
ough curriculum each week
with selected readings, dia-
grams, creative exercises,
power point presentations,
and specially designed stu-
dent workbooks. Classes will
integrate basic Judaism,


Jewish history, Jewish mysti-
cism and the Jewish calen-
dar, practices and ideas
through the study of primary
sources, commentaries, and
group discussion. These and
other items will enable stu-
dents to engage in research,
discussion and critical analy-
sis.
This course will offer fasci-
nating perspectives and rele-
vant lessons on stories such
as Adam and Eve, Noah and
the flood and others. Many
people know the basics of a
biblical story and are not
aware of the deep and philo-
sophical messages hidden
within them.
"Origins" will be offered
Wednesday evenings, 6:45-8
p.m. beginning Oct. 25, at the
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation, 631 South
Tamiami Trail.
Each class is an individual
presentation; come for one
or come for all.
The fee for the book is
$18.
For more information, or
to sign up for the course,
contact Chabad at 429-1190,
e-mail info@chabad-
ofvenice.com or visit
chabadofvenice.com.

Life's a beach especially
on the island part of Venice,
where the beach is within walk-
ing distance of many homes and
condos.
A recent condo listing with
Michael Saunders Realtor
Sherry Welch is within walking
distance of both town and beach.


Located at the comer of West
Venice Avenue and South Park
Boulevard, the two-bedroom,
two-bath unit is on the first floor
of the Venice Park building,
which faces Park Boulevard.
"It has recently been rented
for a year," Welch said. "That is
a nice feature for investment
people. The people are not
adverse to my showing it with a
24-hour notice."


Tall shrubbery provides pri-
vacy and shade to the residence
while not impeding gulf breezes.
The fenced, gated and heated
inground pool is within steps of
the unit's glassed and screened
lanai. An outside door from the
lanai is handy for going to and
from the swimming pool.
Completely refurbished, the
listed residence has new berber
carpeting, fresh paint and newer


appliances.
Both bedrooms feature large
closets with extra shelving and
adjacent bathrooms with tub and
showers and ceramic tile floors.
The pristine white kitchen
opens to the entry hallway to
facilitate grocery delivery and
also to the dining area to simpli-
fy meal service.
There is a hood above the
electric stove and ample counter


space to the left and right of the
stove as well as on either side of
the stainless steel, double-bowl
sink.
Flooring in the kitchen and in
the lanai is new large-scale off-
white ceramic tile placed on the
diagonal.
. There is a window above the
sink, which provides natural'
light and a view to the north. .
A desk area, which can serve


as a home office center is on the
wall facing the entry hallway.
Additional storage is to the
side and above the desk area.
Listed for $287,000, Unit 106
at Venice Park, is at 101 S. Park
Blvd.
Welch is associated with the
Michael Saunders office in
Venice. For an appointment to
see the residence, call her at 223-
6318 or 485-5421.

Commitment: The first step to accomplishment


A n overwhelming
sense of commit-
ent and accom-
plishment permeated the
finish line as participants
walked, skipped, hob-
bled, limped and some-
how made their way
across the bright yellow
end of their 3-day ordeal.
I watched in awe; amazed
by the determined stick-
to-itiveness of each indi-
vidual and was brought
to my emotional knees by
the proud smiles on every
weary.participant's face.
Often, .miles were mois-
tened by tears tears of
accomplishment, tears of
joy and tears that meant
they knew they made a
difference.
Ordinary folks, mostly
women, made up the
field of walkers in the
Tampa Bay Breast Cancer
3-Day held Oct. 13 -15.
This event, sponsored by
The Susan G. Komen
Breast Cancer
Foundation, a National
Philanthropic Trust proj-
ect, was one of many
held annually around the
country. It consisted of a
60-mile walk over a,
three-day period a
fundraising event for the
foundation. Participants
walked approximately 20
miles each of the three
days and camped (yes,
they slept in t6nts on air
mattresses) for two
nights. Not only did they
commit to walking 60
miles, they each were
required to raise at least
$2,200 in donations.
I was there to lend
support to my wife
Evelyn and her partner,
Deb Mechnig of Punta
Gorda, as they elatedly
stepped over the finish
line. They were but two
of the 1,700 walkers in
the event. I was darned
proud as I videoed the
moment because I knew


Capt. Rod
Walinchus


the ordeal their commit-
ment wrought. There .
were long training walks
u n de the grueling sum-
mer sun and thick
humidity. There were
sore muscles, blisters
and minor bouts with
heat exhaustion. But
they endured as did
the rest of the predomi-
nately female pack.
These women aren't
endurance athletes nor
are they especially gifted
in any sport's venue; they
are simply women -
women with a goal and a
strong commitment to
' that goal. When all was
said and done, they
raised over 4.6 million
dollars for the founda-
tion to help discover a
cure for breast cancer
and to support those
afflicted by this terrible
disease. That is an amaz-
ing accomplishment.
The closing cere-
monies brought more
tears, especially when
the more than 200 breast
cancer survivors clad in
their pink survivor t-
shirts many still wear-
ing scarves on their hair-
less heads marched
into the staging area.
They also completed the
60-mile trek. Talk about
commitment!
I report this for two rea-
sons: One, my shameless
pride in my wife's accom-
plishment and two, to


WATERLINE PHOTO BY ROD.WALINrCHI-iS


Evelyn Walinchus and Deb Meching are committed to making a difference.


illustrate how making a
commitment to a goal
can make a difference.
It is my belief that
Charlotte Harbor is
threatened and will only
continue to be threat-
ened if we, the ordinary
boaters, fishermen, con-
servation-minded, etc.,
don't step up to the plate
and commit to doing
something about it. Not
only is the Harbor threat-
ened; a way of life is in
danger too.
Development of our
estuary system continues
to degrade the protective
zone from storms and
decreases, the all impor-
tant habitat that sup-
ports much of our
marine life. Perhaps a
vote in favor of the
Conservation Charlotte
Referendum on the
November ballot might
be a good start.
Our seagrasses are
threatened on a variety
of fronts, many naturally


occurring and many
man-made. Maybe we
should look to the estab-
lishment of no motor
zones to protect this deli-
cate ecosystem.
Our redfish stocks
aren't in particularly
great shape. Perhaps it's
time for a closed season
for part of the year or a
long, hard look at a
change in the slot limit.
Red tide has become
more than an insidious
nuisance. It's time to find,
a way to deal with it
without the bureaucratic
squabbling for funds by
competing agencies.
Pollution from ground-
water runoff is another
issue that needs resolv-
ing if we intend on pre-


serving a healthy Harbor.
The list goes on and
yes, these issues are
being studied, analyzed,
funded and researched
by the scientific commu-
nity and I commend
them for their efforts.
They will eventually
make a difference. But
we, the ordinary folks
who use this great
resource, can contribute
to the effort by making a
personal commitment to
get involved and help
speed the process along.
Let's learn from the
ordinary women who.
walked the 60 miles in
Tampa every small
step towards their goal
made a difference in their
mutual accomplishment.

Used to think this was
an old fisherman's tale,
but I have proof. Most
of us don't even think of
cows when we are headed
out fishing for the day. But
just maybe, it is worth a
second thought.
For many years anglers
have tried to figure out
scientific reasons and
explanations for good and
bad fishing days. I can
remember my grandfa-
ther telling me about
cows and never really
understanding what it all
meant. Now that I pay a
little closer attention to
the elements, things have
become a little clearer.
Obviously, finding the
perfect conditions to go
fishing is not always feasi-
ble. Nlost ofthd time, the
perfect conditions are
when you can get away.
Besides the normal
things to look for, like .,

wind direction, weather
plays a bigger part than
most realize.
Weather is a crucial
element in the behavior
of fish. I know this almost
sounds trivial, but we
often overlook the obvi-
ous. Ever wonder why
fishing is better on some
days than others? Ever
been fishing for hours
without a bite and then all
ot a sudden, you can't
keep fish out of the boat? I
believe it has happened to
all of us and is greatly


determined by our weath-
er fronts.
Fronts are the high-
and low-pressure systems
that occur about every
four or five days. Of
course, fronts don't always
appear like clockwork, so
it is possible to get a high
and a low within a couple
of days of each other. A
simple way to determine
what front you're dealing
with is by looking at the
sky during the day. High
fronts typically do not
show any clouds or very
little. Low pressure fronts
will have numerous
clouds that hold moisture
which develops into the
chance of precipitation.
Fish are very pre-
dictable as the barometer
changes. The barometer
measures the rise and fall
of the atmospheric pres-
sure which changes with
each hront. Fish are

A hot, dry summer
that just won't yield
to fall and a red tide
that has lingered along the
Southwest Florida coast
has not made 2006 much
to crow about.
Tarpon are just about
gone, yet kingfish have yet
to show up. Snook and
redfish have taken up part
of the slack but in the
middle of the day, most
anglers yawn for a good
nap and outdoor activities
are mostly confined to
early morning or late
afternoon affairs.
Hunting season has
started and a lot of out-
door folks have put aside
their fishing rods and
taken up the shotgun or
the bow and arrow. They

now and the screaming
thrills of the waterfront
are about to be relegated
to next year.
But there is one activity
that allows you to beat the
heat and gather some
delicious seafood treats in
the process.


For as long as I can .
remember, folks from
Arcadia came to the Boca
Grande Causeway on
summer nights to dip up
shrimp, which were
going to the Gulf on the
outgoing tide.
A group of African
Americans from Arcadia
made a weekly pilgrim-
age and my, did they
catch a mess of shrimp.
You could fish off the
bridges of the causeway
in those days and the
folks would use frames
made of plastic PVC pipe
with large shrimp nets
attached to them. This
device was simply tied to
the bridge and tossed
overboard where the tide
would sweep shrimp
into the net.


This contraption was so
effective it had to be
pulled in and emptied
every 10 minutes or it
would be too heavy with
flotsam to lift. I used to
marvel at the catches the
shrimp frame nets would
bring. Besides shrimp,
there were the inevitable
pass crabs, sea horses,
seagrasses and oddities
like stargazers a rare
nocturnal fish that pos-
sesses both venom and
the ability to use electrici-
ty to defend itself.
It those days it was not
uncommon for folks to
leave for home with three
or four 5-gallon buckets
full of big shrimp.
You can't fish off that
causeway anymore, so
that easy-going way of


catching shrimp -is just
about gone. But there are
still plenty of places to
catch shrimp in the
Charlotte Harbor area,
and I've heard that the
yearlong red tide of last
year has been producing
a banner year for shrimp.
Scientists know good
shrimp and crab catches
often occur after a red
tide. That was certainly
the case in Tampa Bay, as
this summer has pro-
duced a shrimp harvest
beyond the memory of
most mortal beings.
Usually Charlotte
Harbor shrimping is best
on the big falling tides of
the new and full moon
in May and June. It slows
down in July when
mature shrimp move off-


shore to spawn. But
shrimp should have
reached eating-size by
now. And October means
the biggest bay shrimp
of the year.
Most folks love to eat
shrimp but there is no
comparison between the
shrimp you buy at Publix
and the ones you dip up
and eat fresh from the
sea. Bay shrimp are
much sweeter than the
big crustaceans that
come from deep water.
If you are land-bound,
there are a pair of old rail-
road bridges that produce
plenty of shrimp. The
Placida trestle can be
accessed in Placida
between the Boca Grande

the water instead of just
under the surface. An
example of one of these
suspending-style baits is
the MirrOlure MR19.
The fish seem to tear it
up if you can make it
twitch back and forth on
the surface. This may
sound easy but it takes
just the right touch to
get it right throughout
the course of the day.
It is even more of a
challenge after changing
the hooks. There is noth-
ing wrong with the origi-
nal set of treble hooks,
but they can only take.so
much abuse from being
worked over by hook
removers before they
begin to lose their shape
and edge. What's more, I
am always experiment-
ing with different brands
on my plugs because one
of the drawbacks of
using topwater baits is it
is easy to miss blowups
or boils. It is just the
nature of the beast and I
am looking for any
advantage I can get. With
most aftermarket treble
hooks, if you can correct-
ly match the size to the
originals, you can't really
tell there is a difference
in weight with your bare
hands. But since these
are basically not the
hooks designed to work
with the plug in the first
place, they do have a way
of affecting the action.
So, if you ever find
yourself in a similar situa-
tion, keep this in mind:
There is one other factor
that will help keep a lure
or plug higher in the
water column.
Principally, thick or larger
diameter leader or line,
for that matter, will float
better than thinner,
lighter line. The thicker
lines have more buoyan-


-Capt. Mike
Manis


cy and will not sink into
the water as quickly as
the more streamlined and
thinner lines. With the
exception of fishing
around structure, there
aren't too many scenarios
that I would advocate
going up in line class.
Lighter, thinner lines
allow the lure to look
more natural and work
more freely, allowing
more opportunities for a
bite. However, when it
comes to a topwater pres-
entation, the opposite
can be true. The more
buoyant line can provide
for a better presentation.
Keep in mind, we don't
have to go up a whole lot
to make a difference, and
with the development of
the new fluorocarbon
leader materials, we won't
compromise the visual
aspect of the stealth
equation. For instance, I
would consider 20-pound
test fluorocarbon to be
about the average leader
strength for most applica-
tions. But in order to help
keep one of these sus-
pending-type twitch baits
on top or to even help
make a pure topwater
walk-the-dog style bait
easier to use, I will go up
in line class to 25- or even
30-pound leader material.
By the way, after exper-
imenting with different
bait and hook combina-
tions, we observed how
fish and redfish, in partic-
ular, react after being
hooked and discovered a
consistency definitely
worth passing along to
our readers. It goes back
to one of the reasons we
were trying different

pound leader (on right) and the other has standard hooks
and 20-pound leader.


hooks. It's no secret that
redfish can be tricky to
keep on the line when
fishing with topwater
plugs; they are naturally
clumsy when attacking
these baits. On any given
day, it is not unusual to
get as many boils and
blowups as hookups. It
took me some time, but I
finally realized that, after
being hooked, redfish
instinctively dive into the
thick seagrass trying to
dislodge the plug by rub-
bing it against the thick
cover. When I fished a soft
plastic bait, for example,
with a typical J hook-style
jighead, they were not as
good at shaking it off. But
the large profile of a hard-
bodied plug provided
them more of a surface
area and maybe even a
loose treble hook to pull
against the grass for addi-


tional leverage to pull
loose. Anyway, the lesson
learned was it really
helped to keep the rod tip
up throughout the fight
in order to keep the fish's
head out of the grass as
much as possible.

A gruesome story of a boating nightmare


In the process of keep-
ing safety at the fore-
front of our boating
readers' minds, I often
use real incidents as
examples. Certainly, we
can better appreciate a
principle of boating safe-
ty or etiquette when we
relate it to a real-life story.
In the telling of those sto-
ries, I try to be as delicate
as I can, as some are
caused by unthinking
people who need no fur-
ther embarrassment.
Some are also quite grue-
some and I need to figure
where to draw the line at
how much detail to relate.
This reserve has built up
a lot of personal anxiety I
need to release. Maybe it
is because we are in the
Halloween season and so
many TV advertisements
of scary and explicit hor-
ror movies are constantly
in front of us. At any rate,
last week I had a night-
mare that could be the


BOATING SAFETY


Bill
Hempel


central scene in one of
the movies. In the spirit
of Halloween, I would like
to share a boater's night-
mare with you. So turn
down the lights, draw the
shades, close your eyes
and lean in close as I
whisper this story to you.
You and your dearest
loved one are enjoying a
dream vacation. You have
gone to an incredible
tropical place with beach-
es and beautiful waters.
There is a full harvest


moon shining brightly in
the sky, and what could
be more romantic than a
moonlight cruise. So you
rent a boat, a gorgeous
little 22-foot Sea Ray.
Even though you are rent-
ing, you are an experi-
enced boater. It is night-
time so you put on your
life jackets, just to be cer-
tain you are safe. Nothing
can ruin this romantic
evening for you. You joke
a little about the cushion
effect of the life jackets as
you embrace. Sitting cozi-
ly on a captain's seat
meant to fit one, you
wrap your arms around
each other and watch the
moon dance crazily upon
the smooth waters, as you
casually move along shar-
ing dreams and aspira-
tions while watching the
mansions pass by in the
bright moonlight.
Then it happens,
simultaneously the sky is
darkened by an overhead


shadow and there is a
horrendous deafening
roar coming from above.
You grab each other tight-
ly and look up for a split
second. Now we see
things happening in slow
motion. As you raise your
heads in unison, a black
hulking shadow passes by
overhead. Then horrifi-
cally, you see at the trail-
ing edge of the shadow,
two huge blades spinning
at 4,000 rpms. Before you
can move, the blades
come directly at you.
Blood and flesh fly in all
directions as the blades
eat into your heads. In an
instant, it is over two
beautiful people gone.
Leaving a gruesome
scene that would contin-
ue to shock all who see it.
The aftermath also
includes a large group of
,grieving family members
who now face the rest of
their lives lamenting the
loss of their loved ones.


. How is that for a
Halloween horror night-
mare? Well, guess what,
my fellow boaters? While
it surely is a nightmare, I
didn't make this story up.
It happened the second
week of September in
Miami on the evening of
a Columbus Day regatta.
A 23-year-old man and
his 20-year-old female
companion died from
massive head injuries in a,
boating collision. It seems
the power boat that
struck them was moving
at such a high rate of
speed it went airborne
when it struck their boat.
They suffered massive
head injuries as the
powerboat came down
on them. I may have
embellished a few details
of the event, but it hap-
pened pretty much. as
described.
One thing I am not
embellishing is my anxi-
ety over-the recent rash


of collisions and result-
ant deaths. In the past
month, I have tracked
four fatal collisions. With
one in South Venice and
the others on the West
Coast, fortunately none
have occurred in the
waters of Charlotte
County. However with a
current 30-day track
record of one fatal colli-
sion per week, we are at
high risk unless we
adhere to some basics of
boating etiquette and
safety. Florida continues
to build on its record of
having a boating acci-
,dent mortality rate dou-
ble its nearest rival state.
We have more accidents
than other states and our
accidents are more
severe. Now that hurri-
cane season has nearly
passed, the humidity is
decreasing and the sum-
mer rains and winds are

'Record' smallmouth weighted with lead


KENNEWICK, Wash.
(AP) Austin Kenyon
insisted his smallmouth
bass was one for the
state record books. The
state, however, wasn't
hooked.
In fact, it ruled that
the bass was packed
with lead weights.
Two of Kenyon's
friends signed state-
ments saying the fish


had been tampered
with when it was
weighed on a state-cer-
tified scale.
"Our determination is
that the fish had been
stuffed with lead
weights at the time it
was inspected," said
Keith Underwood of the
state Department of
Fish and Wildlife.
Kenyon, 22, of


Kennewick, claimed the
fish he caught Labor
Day weekend was legiti-
mate. He said it
weighed 9.32 pounds on
a state-certified scale.
Ray Wonacott of
Ellensburg holds the
record with an 8.75-
pound smallmouth bass
caught in 1966.
About a half-dozen
state officials were


involved in a month-
long investigation into
Kenyon's bass.
The fish was caught
Sept. 2, weighed Sept. 5
and inspected by state


officials Sept. 6. By the
time the state wanted a
closer look, Kenyon had
already taken it to be
mounted.
State officials and


anglers began question-
ing the would-be
record, saying common
formulas used to calcu-
late fish weight didn't
support Kenyon's claim.

A Classic time of year for tournaments


T his is the time of
year that gets all the
bass club members
ready to prove they can
really win the big one.
That's right; it's time for
the Classic tournament in
most clubs. The months
of October and November
generally signal the end of
the season for tourna-
ment anglers and every-
one who qualified for the
big tournament wants to
take home the big prize.
I know that's the way it
is for my two partners and
me. In the couples club I
fish in, we finished our
Classic tournament last
month. On a weekend
when fishing was less than
perfect, we managed to
come in with enough
weight over the two days
to place sixth. Not too bad.
My partner, Missy, and I
agreed we could have

one has a pretty heal
payout for first place.
Considering we won
of these tournaments
back in February, we


N like we can fish with any-
one and have a good shot
at winning. We are no dif-
ferent than any of the
other tournament anglers.
We have been practicing
and putting our time in
like everyone else. So far,
we have just eliminated a
lot of areas we do not
want to return to.
Had we put that kind of
practice into a few of the
earlier tournaments, we
may have managed to win
t we one or two more. The
t we Classic is the tournament
k- where everyone remem-
bers the winner for the rest
issic of the year all the way
e until the Classic comes
my around for next year. If
This your club has a nice year-
thy end banquet like the
Lakeland Bassmasters put
one, on, you get honored in
s front of the entire club.
feel You get a chance to swell


up your chest and be the
man for one evening.
What weekend angler
would not like that
honor? For the Classic
Ricky and I are going to
fish, there is no banquet.
It is not a trail that keeps
track of points for a sea-
son-long champ.
However, this trail draws
over 65 boats to every
tournament. Some
monthly tournaments
have nearly 80 boats, so a
first-place check at the
Classic is pretty substan-
tial. That is why we are
putting in the time
searching water for qual-
ity bass. So far, I have
only found a few fish,
and none of them have
been of quality so the
search continues.
We have fished in a lot
of new areas. Areas we
hoped bass started to


move into due to the
water cooling down.
Unfortunately, we have
not had the good fortune
to bump into many bass
yet. I look at it like this:
We have eliminated a lot
of "bad water." I plan to
move into some areas
where I had good luck in
the past but haven't yet
fished this year. I am
hoping, with the water
temperature going down,
that we find some fish in
areas I know most people
have not yet fished.
I spent a lot of time
looking at a map of the
lake with very good detail
as far as the water depth
Sis concerned. Because
the water is still so low in
Florida, the depth ranges
are a little off but it
adjusts evenly over the
entire map. I keep
expecting to find some


quality fish in the deeper
edges of canals, a place
where baitfish will be
plentiful and allow the
bass to feed easily.
I had the good fortune
to win a few tourna-
ments in my day.and
place in quite a few oth-
ers. I had many top-ten
finishes this year and am
hoping my consistency
will be rewarded at this
Classic event. Only time
will tell and I hope that
over the three days we
have left to practice, that
we can locate the quality
fish we have been
searching for. Good luck
to all of you who are
working your way to your
Classics. For those who
have good finishes, don't
be afraid to share your
stories with me. I look
forward to seeing you all
in the winners circle.

KIMBERLING CITY,
Mo. (MCT) Flip the

sion to ESPN, and you -
will get a good look / .
at the changing /-/'
face of fishing. ,.'
Bass boats plas- -'
tered with the col-

sponsors speed
across lakes during
Bassmaster national
tournaments, creating a
NASCAR-like scene on the
water.
Helicopters carrying
film crews hover over-
head, cameramen ride
along with contenders to
get action footage, and
reporters do color seg-
ments on fishermen.
See that guy with the
tattoos, break-dancing
on the weigh-in stage
and getting in the face of
the bass he catches?
That's Mike laconelli,
one of the new wave of
fishermen attracting a
wild following.
Local fishermen follow
their heroes when they
head out in the morning,

ing success.

Bass fishing, a spectator

Ever since ESPN bought
BASS, the nation's largest

getting that across. Now,
ESPN is changing that.
"ESPN gives us a plat-

excitement of our sport.
And people are paying


attention."
Some will point out
that ESPN didn't invent
pro bass fishing. It is re-
inventing it.
Before ESPN purchased
BASS, the fishing organi-
zation already had a huge
membership, a national
tournament circuit, a suc-
cessful television show
and a popular magazine.
But ESPN is taking that
proven formula and try-
ing to make it even better.

How to win


- or lose at the starting line


One of the most
important things
about racing on a
short course is the start-
ing position. Many short
races can be won or lost
right at the starting line.
If the wind is steady,
without many shifts, and
your boat speed is
almost equal with the
others, you will find it
hard to find a passing
zone on the course with
a competitor who knows
what he is doing. There
are many things to con-
sider on the starting line,
but there are three that
are considered real
important at the starting
signal. Favored tack,
favored end of line, and
(in harbor or river sail-
ing) favored current con-
dition are tactics that
you can get a jump off
the line with or, if played
wrong, lose at the start.
How do you go about
finding these conditions


GONE SAILING


Dennis
Peck

while on the water? I will
attempt to describe
some of the ways that
may help you to deter-
mine which to use.
Remember, even though
these work, there are also
other tactics. You will
find some sailors using
these actions only to
forecast their intent, but
it may not be what they
are going to use.
Favored tack: Sail to
about the middle of the
starting line and point


the boat at the windward
mark or first mark
rounding. If you are not
head to wind (luffing
with sails in the center of
the boat) that will be
your favored tack.
Another method is to luff
head to wind and deter-
mine which side of the
boat the first marker is
on. If it is on your star-
board side, then the port
tack is your favored tack,
or if it's on the port side
then use a starboard
tack. This must be done
several times as you
check to see where the
main wind shifts are
coming from. Now this
doesn't have to be done
so overtly that all can see
what you are doing.
Learn to do this as you
rack without stopping
your tack. The trick is to
do this without broad-
casting what you are
doing. With practice, this
can also be done any-


where around the line as
you learn to compensate
for your position. This is
one of the easiest ways to
find a favored tack.
The next you'll want to
find out what the current
is doing around the stat-
ing line and up the
course. This will take
some patience and lots
of reading of the water
and your boat. At the
ends, look for the current
flow around the commit-
tee boat and the end
buoy. See if they match
each other or are differ-,
ent. Sail up the course
and look for floats or
other things that may
help you determine the
current flow. Also, do a
slow speed tack by point
high and see how much
leeway you make while
on the tack. This will take
some time because you
have to do it several
times and control your
speed equally on both


tacks to get the best pic-
ture. These first two can
be done in any order, but
I would do the current
-test first so that wind
check can be done while
the starting sequence is
happening. You can see
the reasons to get to the
course early so you
are able to get a picture
of what is happening. It
is like what NASCAR rac-
ers do in their qualifying
runs. They test the con-
ditions of the track.
Those who just make the
start are already behind
the game and have to
crash-learn as the race is
happening.
The favored end of the
starting line will take into
consideration the first
test, but you must first
have an idea what is
going to happen on the
course. One thing to con-
sider in the favored end
is how close the first
mark is in relation to the


other end. Obviously, if
the pin end is close, it
will have to be consid-
ered a good possibility it
will be the favored end.
Now if the starboard tack
is greatly favored and the
port end of the line is
just slightly closer, it
doesn't mean it is favored
for the starboard tack,
which could actually put
you with less time to the
mark. Draw it out and if
done right, you will see
the wind angles have to
be right also. If the com-
mittee boat has done a
good job, the first mark
should be almost dead
upwind. The common
thought on committee
boat set up is to slightly
favor the mark end so
the boats aren't so close
to the committee boat
they will hit it. Don't
count on this because it
may not bp the case. You

It was an informal bet.
Neither of us had fished
the area before, so we
were not sure what we
would find. The bet was,
whoever caught the first
bass would be treated to
breakfast when we came
off the water. As usual, I
lost. But it was still a ban-
ner day as this new area
produced quite a surprise.
With me was local Punta
Gorda resident Jimmy
Handlon fishing buddy,
scout and hero, and soon-
to-be charter captain.
My personal goal is to
locate and kayak fish as
many local waters as pos-
sible. This is turning out to
be no small feat there

cooling down,
fishing action
should really start heat-
ing up. Every year about
this time the Gulf waters
start churning with plen-
ty of fish goings-on, and
hopefully this season will
be no exception.
One particular fish that
really seems to agitate
local angler's blood into
boiling is cobia. Each fall,
right about this time,
schools of cobia start
appearing up and down
the coast. Anglers who
know where and what to
look for will be pleased
with the opportunity of
hooking into one of these
large brawlers.
Cobia will often mate-
rialize or pop up in the
areas where bottom
structure is present,
such as at one of the
local county artificial
reef systems.


OFFSHORE GULF FISHING


Capt. Dave
Pinkham

Cobia fishing is almost
a discipline in itself.
Anglers who consistently
catch them have learned
their behavior patterns
and have perfected cer-
tain fishing techniques.
They learned how to tar-
get cobia. During this
time of year on the Gulf,
these successful anglers
will always keep extra
rods ready and rigged
specifically for sight-
casting to cobia swim-


ming at or near the sur-
face. More often than
not, casting a lively pin-
fish or a large frisky
shrimp in front of a
swimming cobia will
usually provoke this
marauding fish into
striking.
To me, there is some-
thing magical about
hooking up with a big
cobia. It can be an awe-
inspiring experience and
an event in any angler's
life never to be forgotten.
Honestly, I can clearly
remember most of the
exceptional cobia I've
caught or helped my
clients catch. Often,
these dramatic catches of
big cobia involved a
group effort from all
anglers aboard.
A large, hooked cobia
will frequently make sev-
eral long, hard runs at or

SA retri
M any of us don't
even think about
how we retrieve
our flies when we begin
fishing we just fish. It
would be a safe bet that
the majority of anglers
begin their retrieve as soon
as they complete the cast.
They do it repetitively and
mechanically as part of
their normal routine. While
this may be effective some
of the time, it probably isn't
-, most of the time.
We've all had the
unpleasant experience of
fishing alongside a few
buddies and everyone is
^"-; catching fish but us. We
k .5 usually sneak a few peeks
at what they are using and
surreptitiously change fly
m patterns to match theirs.
SHeck, we'll even begin to
^ edge a bit closer to them.
Ssd- We'll ask if their patterns
. are weighted or unweight-
"- ed in hopes that there may
T be a difference and hence,
a solution. We'll watch
'-'" where they are casting and
le' attempt to cast to similar
spots or, if desperate
enough, the same spots.
And if we still aren't catch-
ing fish, the ultimate insult
occurs: 'The pity offer.' This
is the offer by one of our
buddies to change places
with us because


Capt. Rod
Walinchus
FLY FISHING

they've caught enough. As
if there isn't enough pres-
sure to catch a fish, now
we're set up for humilia-
tion..
In most cases, we've
overlooked the one vital
element, the retrieve,
which might have made
the difference. Many fly
fishermen get into a rut in
their fishing technique,
especially so if the action is
slow. They cast, they
retrieve, they cast, they
retrieve over and over
and over until they hook a
fish or quit. They get
caught up in the mechan-
ics of fly fishing and forget
about actually fishing.
How we fish a fly pattern
is very often dictated by
the species of fish. When
we are targeting Spanish
mackerel, bonito and other
tunas, jacks and lady-fish
we know that the retrieve
should be moderately fast
to fast. These species seem
to prefer a pattern that
moves at a good clip. But
what about the times when


they have bait balled near
the surface and are savage-
ly slashing through them ,
- ever think of not using a
retrieve at all, of just letting
the fly sink through the
chaos? Very often the big-
ger fish will hang under the
ball of bait feeding on
pieces of bait the dead
and wounded as they
sink. I once caught large
bonito after large bonito by
doing just that, while my
friends just caught Spanish
mackerel. They all wanted
to hook bonito but they
began retrieving as soon as
the fly hit the water good
enough for mackerel but
not for bonito. It wasn't
until I explained what I
was doing that they began
to catch bonito.
Most of us who fish
inshore species know that
a snook will probably turn
off a retrieved fly if it stops
(there aren't many prey
species that will stop with a
snook trailing them). We
know a steady retrieve is
the ticket with a slight
speed-up if we see a fish
trailing, but not taking, the
fly Very often, the
increased speed will be the
final enticement that
makes a snook eat the fly.
We know trout like a
retrieve with pauses; one
that allows for

in just pulling on line


the fly to sink or "fall back."
Trout love to eat the fly on
i-he "fall back." When cast-
ing around for trout, it's
often a good idea to wait a
few moments after the fly
enters the water; many
trout will hit the fly as it
sinks. Anyone who fly fish-
es for trout has hooked
them on the first strip of
the retrieve.
Redfish also like a steady
retrieve, especially if a
baitfish pattern is used.
But unlike snook, they will
often strike a pattern that
suddenly stops and sinks,
as they are trailing it
probably because they are
S*,ed to feeding on crabs
and shrimp that act that
way). They don't always
react positively to a
stopped retrieve they
very often turn off and
swim away. The same
goes for speeding
up the retrieve -
they may or
may not hit it. .
I attempt to .-
keep the
speed l
constant,
at least
until they fol- .
low very closely
to the boat where
I may speed it up
and suddenly stop,
forcing the fish to
make a -.


decision: Eat it or flee.
When fishing for tarpon,
I have found a slow draw -
keeping the fly just in front
of the fish is my most
effective retrieve. I attempt
to match the speed of the
fish and keep the fly within
a two foot 'zone' just in
front of the fish. When I do
strip it, I do so with a slow,
steady, drawing motion -
not fast and not slow. If I
can keep it in that zone
long enough, the fish will
usually try to eat it.
Most fly fishermen fish
their patterns too fast and
too erratically. The first .
strip of the fly after it hits:
the water is usually a
sharp, fast strip which can
startle any nearby fish. This
defeats the purpose. The
first strip should be slow
and steady, with enough
movement to call atten-
tion to it without
scaring the fish
out of the area.
Those sharp,
-- fast strips do
more to alert
fish to danger
than they do
to entice them
to eat.
Consider
slowing


everything down and move
the fly just enough to
impart action as it is being
retrieved. This keeps the fly
in the area of nearby fish
for a longer period of time.
The fast retrieve often
doesn't give the fish
enough time to decide
whether or not it should
chase and eat it, or it sim-
ply may not see it.
Anglers who fish crab
patterns usually fish them
incorrectly. They strip
them back like other pat-
terns. Crab patterns
should be allowed to sink .
and if moved, stripped in a
slow and even manner
allowing for occasional
bumps on the bottom.
Most anglers will bump
the fly with a sharp tug,
again startling any fish
that may be interested.
Most fish will pick a crab
pattern off the bottom or
as it falls to the bottom.
When fishing crab pat-
terns think slow and then
think slower.
The perfect retrieve is
the one that ends up with
a fish attached. Fish are
fish and nothing works 100
percent of the time. A good
angler will experiment
until he finds a retrieve
that works in that spot, for
that fish, on
that day. 4',-,


eeding up the retrieve will often entice a snook into striking.


Redfish like a slow to moderate retrieve. They may even hit a fly if the retrieve stops, but
don't count on it.

opening


L ast year, I went ro -o
Oklahoma City
and while
there, I made sure
to stop by the Bass
Pro Shops in that
landlocked
.Midwestern
town. Last month
when I visited
Islamorada, I spent
an hour in the World
Wide Sportsman (a Bass
Pro store). Evern time I
go to Orlando I schedule
a side trip to the Bass Pro
Shops in that bustling
tourist town. I'm appar-
ently not alone in my
attraction to the huge
fishing/hunting/ out-
doors stores because
nearly 80 million people
walked through the
doors of one of the 35
locations in North
America last year.
Beginning next week, I
won't need to schedule a
vacation day to visit a
Bass Pro Shops because
'the grand opening of
their newest store is
scheduled for November
2, and it's located just
down the road in Fort
Myers.
Why are Bass Pro
Shops stores so popular
that in many communi-
ties they're treated
almost more like attrac-
tions than retail stores?
(The original Bass Pro
Shops store in
Springfield, Missouri is
touted as the biggest
tourist attraction in the
state) Probably two rea-
sons: First, Bass Pro
Shops are set up to be
pleasing to the eye and
interesting as well. Fish
and game mounts adorn
the walls, memorabilia is
everywhere, and there
are huge aquariums full
of local gamefish. A focal
point of the Fort Myers
store will be a 19,000-gal-
lon freshwater aquarium
and water feature. The
store sits adjacent to a
24-acre pond which is


r


big
enough to be used for
boat testing, and I'm told
there have already been
fish caught there by
some of the staff.
The second reason
Bass Pro Shops stores are
so popular is they're sim-
ply huge. How huge?
Here are some statistics
from the new Fort Myers
location. The store
comes in at around
123,000 square feet.
Included in the store are
a Tracker Boat dealer and
an 8000-square-foot
restaurant called the
Islamorada Fish
Company. You want
selection when you go
shopping? The fishing
department will stock
approximately 48,000
different items, with
another 30,000 items in'
the hunting department.
Over 4200 fishing rods
will be in the store. Those


are mind-
boggling numbers. There
are also camping, kayak-
ing, clothing, footwear,
boat supply, golf, book
and other departments.
Establishing the
inventory of those 48,000
items in the fishing
department must be an
incredibly complex task.
Most of the major manu-
facturers of rods, reels,
line, hooks and lures will
be represented and Bass
Pro Shops also has a
wide assortment of their
own brands of tackle. In
fact, on the last two guid-
ed fishing trips I took in
the Keys (a tarpon trip in
Key West in May and a

How to do what bears do in the woods


BELLINGHAM, Wash.
(MCT) -You marvel at
friends' stories of week-
long adventures in the
backcountry.
You dream of joining
the thousands of hikers
who visit the North
Cascades each year, but
you feel like you can't
without the answer to
one nagging question:
Where's the bathroom?
If taking care of bodily
business outside seems
too messy or too awk-
ward, products are avail-
able to make the experi-
ence a little easier.
Trowels or shovels.
While your standard gar-
den trowel will work just
fine for digging and filling
cat holes, gear manufac-
turers have designs that
are lighter or collapsible.
REI (www.rei.com) sells
products that range from
the bright orange, plastic
Sanitation Trowel for
$1.75, to the U-Dig-It
stainless steel folding
shovel for $17.95.
Portable toilets. These
are geared more toward
car camping than long
hikes since they are too.
heavy or too bulky to
carry for long distances.
REI sells the PETT
Portable Environmental
Toilet that takes a liner
and folds into a carrying
case, $89, the Reliance
Luggable Loo, $16, and
the Century Portable
Toilet, $69.
Women's devices. The
Sani-Fem Freshette EU.D.
(feminine urinary direc-
tor) allows women to uri-
nate standing up and not
expose themselves. A
tube extends from a cup.
REI sells it for $19.95.
Waste bags. Blue bags
and twist ties are avail-
able at an increasing
number of parks and
national forests, includ-
ing North Cascades
National Park and Mount
Baker Snoqualmie
National Forest ranger
and information stations,
where they are free. The
WAG Bag waste kit comes
with a waste bag, zip-
close storage bag, toilet


paper and hand sanitizer.
Waste bags contain an
agent that turns waste
into a stable gel, neutral-
izes odors and catalyzes
decomposition. REI sells
the single kit for $2.75, or
a pack of 12 for $28.
How-to guides. Many
hiking and backpacking
books include chapters
about how to urinate or
defecate outside. One
book, considered the
comprehensive guide, is a
humorous look at the
subject: "How to S*** in
the Woods: An
Environmentally Sound
Approach to a Lost Art,"
by Kathleen Meyer. Village
Books sells it for $7.95.
For more information
about proper outdoor
human waste disposal,
go to www.lnt.org, the
Web site for the Leave
No Trace Center for
Outdoor Ethics.
For those who are
greenest to outdoor life,
taking care of basic
human functions outside
can be baffling enough to
keep them within close
range of a flushing toilet.
Judging by the messy,
stinky piles, not everyone
lets their lack of knowl-
edge keep them out of
the forest.
"Every year we have a
problem with higher-use
cross-country zones,"
says Michelle Blank, a
North Cascades National
Park wilderness ranger.
"People will poop in the
snow, the snow melts,
and it leaves piles of
waste." This year, 15
rangers patrolling North
Cascades National Park
campsites and cross-
country zones encoun-
tered 109 piles of human
feces or toilet paper.
That's up from 63 piles in
2005.
Trailheads can be a
problem, too, because of
the higher concentration
of people, says Magenta
Widner, a forest techni-
cian for the Mount Baker-
Snoqualmie National
Forest.
"Some of the trailheads

from the parking lot and
would find toilet areas
where people had just left
waste." That's been less of
a problem as more toilets
have been installed at
parking lots near popular
trails. And campsites
throughout the National
Park have toilets.
Besides detracting from
the outdoor experience
for passers-by, human
waste also can present a
health hazard, especially
if feces wash into nearby
streams and lakes.
And with population
increases putting more
pressure on parks and
wilderness areas, leaving
outside places the way
you found them becomes
more important for the
next human visitors and
the resident flora and
fauna.
What to do when you
have to go doesn't have to
be a mystery.
. "It just seems like a
new skill to learn like a lot
of backcountry skills,"
Blank says.

Causeway and El Jobean.
It's a long pier and can
produce mixed results,
though the shrimping can
be great there. Don't for-
get to bring a fishing rod
along as well. Snook are in
season now and you will
see plenty of monster
linesiders during a
shrimping trip. Tarpon
can also make things very
interesting for awhile.
_. Just across from the
Placida trestle is the Coral
Creek trestle. This is a
smaller spot and is often
occupied by rod and reel
anglers who keep it
crowded, but on a lonely
night right after a rain, it
can be a winner. Both
trestles are open to the
public, but they do have
limited parking.
If you want to pay the
fee to go across the Boca
Grande Causeway you
will find another good
shrimping trestle. Tucked
away right next to Uncle
Henry's Marina, on the
north end of Gasparilla
Island, is the westernmost
part of the trestle that
begins in Placida.
I think it's called the
Zasparilla Island Fishing
Pier. There is good park-
ing and the trestle is a
short one that funnels
shrimp through by the
dozens. '
Another spot for land-
bound shrimpers is the
Tom Adams Bridge over
Lemon Bay. This bridge is
in the heart of downtown
Englewood and is one of
two bridges to Manasota
Key. When they built the
new bridge, they left parts
of the old one on the
southeast side to be used
as a fishing pier and this
remnant can produce
good shrimping.
Of course, if you have a
boat, there are plenty of
good shrimping spots.
The lighted Boca Grande
swing bridge is as good a
spot as any, though many
shrimpers will set up shop
about 200 yards west of
.this bridge to prevent the
light on the bridge from
canceling out their own
lights.


Not many shrimp get to this size, but small ones are sweeter anyway.


Lights are a key to
shrimping and they come
in all kinds of fancy
designs. But for land-
bound shrimpers, the
simplest arrangement is a
lantern (I prefer a propane
one). It is also preferable
to put a piece of round
metal over the top of the
lantern to reflect the light
down onto a circle in the
water. Most shrimpers get
a small metal garbage can
lid and then cut a slit in it
to fit the lantern hand.
But in a pinch, I've made
do with one of those
throw-away aluminum
pans like you would cook
a turkey in..
The next piece of
equipment you need is a
long-handled dip net.
Some of these bridges are
quite high, but you can
buy shrimp nets in sec-
tions and can get them up
to 18-feet or so in length,
plenty adequate for
shrimping from the high-
est bridges.
Now, you tie the lantern
and its reflective device to
the bridge railing and
lower it until it is about a
foot above the surface of-


the water. This should
cast a circle of bright light
on the water, which
attracts shrimp.
Every night when the
tide pulls and the light
goes away, shrimp know it
is a time of danger. They
stay buried in the mud
during the day because
they would be very easy
targets for predators dur-
ing the diurnal hours. The
nighttime is a safer time
for them to travel, but it
still isn't without dangers.
When they see the light of
the lantern, they feel safe
and will often congregate
around the light in droves.
When that happens, it
is a simple matter of
scooping them up. But
fresh shrimp are perish-


able and should either be
put on ice right away or
kept alive in a bait bucket.
A lot of anglers dip a
shrimp up and use it to
bait a rod resting against
the bridge railing. By doing
so, you can take home a
bonus of mangrove snap-
per, snook and trout to go
with your shrimp.
One very important
piece of equipment for
nocturnal shrimpers sel-
dom gets mentioned. I
don't know what they feed
them (maybe iguana
blood) but the mosqui-
toes at Boca Grande are
among the worst in the
world.
So a good can of bug
spray can save you a lot of
pain. Still, regular bug

spray will seldom stave off
the ravenous sand flies
(no-see-ums to those
raised in other climates).
For these tiny torturers,
you will need one specific
product. For many years
outdoorsmen have been
sneaking into their wife's
perfume cabinet to pur-
loin.a skin conditioner
called Skin So Soft.
I think the makers of
this product were at first
horrified that this dainty

deterrent. However, this
eventually opened up a
new and thriving market.
I doubt we will see any
television commercials
soon about the value
Skin So Soft has for hold-
ing sand flies at bay. But
just about every tackle
shop in the country
stocks it today.
That saga is just part of
the cool, but strange,
adventure that greets you
when the sun goes down
and the cool breeze
blows.

BLUEWAY
From page 4

The Blueway stretches
from the Imperial River
near the Collier County
line to the mangrove
shores of Charlotte Harbor
Preserve State Park, from
Bedman Creek well up the
Caloosahatchee River to
the open water of Cayo
Costa State Park. Says
Clayton, "It feels like pad-
dling in the Everglades."
And it's well off the
track. "Almost all of it is
away from powerboats
and other traffic," says
Betsy Clayton,
Waterways Coordinator
for Lee County Parks &
Recreation, which creat-
ed the Blueway a few
years ago.
Unless the Gulf rises
several feet, it'll stay that
way. Although the
Blueway traverses water
of every variety, most of it
is in shallow, protected
water that powerboats
will find difficult, if not
impossible, to access.
And yet the places the
Blueway can take you to
include Cayo Costa State
Park, Four Mile Cove
Ecological Preserve,
Matanzas Pass Preserve,
Ding Darling National
Wildlife Refuge, and Estero
Bay Aquatic Preserve; the
Randell Research Center
and the Koreshan State
Historic Site; Matlacha
Pass and the Captiva
islands. The Blueway also
connects to the Calusa
Land Trust Trails on and
around Pine Island.
The speed of most
powerboats all but
ensures you'll see only a
fraction of what's to be
seen when you're on the
water. Canoes and kayaks

are perfect for the
Blueway, not just because
of their shallow draft but
because their pace
encourages you to notice
the abundance of life in
the estuary. Want to get
out and explore that shal-
low flat? In one of these
boats, no problem. It's an
intimacy with the water
that you just can't get with
other boats.
The genius of the
Blueway is that it's acces-
sible to anyone who can
paddle (or who can
arrange for someone else
to do the paddling).
Families can plan a short
route with plenty of
opportunity for stopovers
- for lunch, beachcomb-
ing, or just to stretch their
legs on the many iso-
lated islands and beaches
along the Blueway.


Lee County Parks & Recreation has created a highly
informative and useful site on the Blueway -
www.greatcalusablueway.com, where you'll find such
details as trail maps, GPS coordinates for every one of
the trail's markers, local points of interest, a guide to its
natural history, put-ins, and outfitters. It even provides
links to weather and tide charts.
The county also provides two free Blueway maps: One
for Estero Bay and one for Pine Island Sound-Matlacha
Pass. (There are also water-resistant versions of these
maps.) Get them by visiting the site or from a number of
the area's outfitters. Between the Web site and these
maps, -you could-plan literally dozens- of-outings.- - -


Inexperienced or
unsure paddlers can put
in at places like the Ceitus
access, off Burnt Store
Road. "No boats, lots of
birds, andit's well-pro-
tected," says Clayton. The
Blueway is feasible even
on the windiest winter
days, with sheltered alter-
natives like the Indian
Field route, on the north-
east side of Pine Island,
and Buzzard Bay just
across Matlacha Pass.
Advanced paddlers
could spend several days
on the Blueway and still
not exhaust its possibili-
ties. At a leisurely pace of
3-knots, it would take a
seasoned kayaker 32 hours
of pure paddling time to
cover the entire Blueway.
For those attempting this,
the several camping
options along the
Blueway at Pine Island,
Cayo Costa, and else-
where will come in handy.
If you like paddling rela-
tively open water, Tropic
Star (239-283-0015) offers
one of the best deals I've
come across. For $40 you
get a ferry ride from
Pineland, on Pine Island,
to Cayo Costa State Park,
where you can select a
kayak and paddle the 6-
mile stretch of Blueway
trail back to Pineland .=


with plenty of opportunity
along the way to explore
the islands of Pine Island
Sound. (The ferry leaves
at 9:30 a.m. and you must
return the same day.)
Of course, if you're
attracted to canoeing or
kayaking in the first place,
your passage holds at
least as much interest as
your destination. That's
where the Blueway really
shines. In one trip you
can travel over tidal fiats,
mud flats, and seagrass
flats; past rookery islands,
oyster bars, mangrove
forests, and hardwood
hammocks.
.Each of these habitats
supports different bird,
fish, and plant life.
Because the Blueway is in
estuarine waters, you'll
be traveling through
habitat that is home to 40
percent of the state's
threatened or endan-
gered species, including
sawfish, wood storks and
roseate spoonbills.
You'll also be silently
gliding above a nursery
for 80 percent of Florida's
commercially important,
fish, shellfish, and crus-
taceans. With the stealth
your canoe or kayak
affords, you'll get closer
to wildlife than you've
ever been. .


Although Lee County
makes no claim that the
Blueway is based on actual
routes the Calusa Indians
may have used in their
dugout canoes, there's no
question that when you're
paddling the Blueway,
you're using some of the
same water trails the
Calusas did centuries ago.
If that sends a shiver up
your spine, you'll want to
check out the many his-
torical and archeological
treasures the Blueway
provides access to. When
Clayton and I visited the
Pineland launch a non-
descript unpaved parking
lot on Pineland Road -
she pointed to what
looked like an old mos-
quito drainage ditch.
"That's the Calusa canal."
They dug it across the
island so they wouldn't
have to paddle around its
northern lobe to get to


Matlacha Sound. When
you put in at Pineland,
you're retracing the steps
the Calusa made at least
500 and perhaps as many
as 1,000 years ago.
The Randell Research
Center the most
important archeological
site relating to the Calusa
is just across the street,
and would be no trouble
for paddlers to pay a visit
to on their way up the
island.
Clayton also likes
Mound Key, in Estero Bay.
"It's an easy paddle and a
great stopover for fami-
lies." Indians settled here
around 100 AD; their
mound still stands at 30
feet above sea level. The
island's trails include
markers with plant identi-
fication and historical
facts provide context.
'And you'll usually have it
to yourself," says Clayton.
Of course, there's excel-
lent fishing to be had on
the Blueway. I lost the
snook of a lifetime in
Buzzard Bay on a perfectly
sunny February morning,
casting into the mangroves
(I had no anchor or pole,
and the big girl just pulled
me into the prop roots and
broke me off). Try an old-
timers' trick for catching
very big snook Trolling
with a long silver spoon
trailing well behind you.
As I gazed out from the
Pineland launch with
Clayton, watching a
roseate spoonbill work
its bill through the shal-
low water, we both mar-
veled at the Blueway's
combination of wildlife,
natural beauty, history,
and fishing. "So many
places in Florida are
kitschy-historical," she
said. "This is real."

From page 16
be there, so a-fishin' we went. It was a
great morning with a cool crisp feeling in
the air that I have missed for the last sev-
eral months. The small 20-acre-or-so lake
appeared to be in great shape with clear
water and plenty of cover for Mr. Bass.
But it did not take long to figure out that
something was not quite right. There was
little to no activity and there should have
been at the magic daylight hour. There
was no feeding activity, no bait was evi-
dent, and no birds. In fact, there was no
anything going on. We fished hard for
about an hour and managed to work
most of the shoreline of this good looking
little lake. But there was nothing to show
for our efforts. In several recent columns
I mentioned being in a fishing slump. I
have been catching a few fish here and
there, but nothing to really brag about.
Was this going to be another one of those
average outings?
Deciding to move, we remembered
another small body of water just down the
road that Captain-elect Handlon had
been anxious to fish. This second location
was more of a creek-like area than a lake.
The entry spot was grassy and proved to
be a great place to launch the kayaks.
Even though this area is off a main road
and within casting distance of Interstate
75, it had a wild and remote look to it and
we almost immediately saw evidence of
fish life. Bait was busted along the shore-
line and the entire area just had a fishy
look to it. Within a couple of minutes
Handlon hooked and released a small
bass. In retrospect, I should have pressed
the breakfast bet to include the largest fish
as well as the first. We used various proven
bass lures including the Snag Proof Frog, a
Zippin' Ziggy, a topwater plug Fishin'
Frank promised would catch fish but did-
n't, a really ugly plastic lizard and a soft
plastic bait I have grown to really appreci-
ate. It is the Exude + worm/jerk bait called
a Comida. The Comida is best described'
as a cross between a saltwater jerk bait
and a freshwater plastic worm. I have
used most of the Mister Twister Exude
soft plastic baits during the last several
years with great results in salt water and
can now give a firsthand testimonial to
the Exude freshwater plastics as well. The
Exude + Comida can be rigged several
different ways, including weedless with
an offset worm hook, with a jig head and
can even be worked in a topwater pres-
entation which makes it a terrific bass
catching offering.
After a couple of hours of fishing this
new area, we caught and released a dozen
or so small bass. Handlon missed several
larger fish and I hooked and lost two bass
that were in the 3- to 4-pound class. That
is about the way my luck has been going
lately. But the area was absolutely beauti-
ful, with loads of Palmetto bushes along
the banks, large live oaks with Spanish

moss hanging down and the water clarity
was exceptional. As we were about to fin-
ish the day, I casually mentioned to
Handlon that there seemed to be quite a
few small bass but not too many of the
large variety. Then, all heck broke loose. I
flipped a black/blue flake Comida into a
small pocket along the bank in the shade
of a large live oak. It was no more than a
20-foot cast and I could see the soft plastic
begin to settle when a large flash appeared
and my line went slack. Reeling quickly, I
set the hook and the bass came out of the
water no more than 10 feet from my
kayak. It is painful to admit that I froze.
This was easily the largest bass I have ever
hooked. Handlon yelled at me and I came
back to life but the fish decided to go back
into the area that must have been home
base. It jumped again and went down into
brush and tree limbs and I could no
longer feel the fish on the line. Handlon
saved the day by quickly paddling over
and grabbing my line and leader, saying
he could see the fish and it was still on.
Clearly it was luck, but Handlon very care-
fully worked the fish out of the brush and
it is now recorded in the memories of my
mind. After taking several pictures, this
estimated 8- to 10-pound bass was
released to battle another day. I swear, as it
swam off, it gave me a go-to-hell look and
with a flip of its tail was gone. Slump over!
Until next time, tight lines and keep your
paddle in the water.

moves across the area, the
atmospheric pressure
drops and that is what
turns on fish.
I typically load my boat
at the Placida ramp near
Gasparilla Island and every
time I go by the small farm
near Ingman Marine on
Gasparilla Road, I glance at
the cows in the pasture. I
know your thinking,
"What does this have to
do with cows and fish?"
Cows and fish, strangely
enough, have similar feed-
ing patterns affected by

cause of Florida boating
accidents. Alcohol,
fatigue and not paying
attention are the leading
contributing factors that
result in collisions.
Every boater should
take a basic boating class.
The basics are well-
taught by the Power
Squadron and the Coast
Guard Auxiliary and both
organizations offer a vari-
ety of times and dates to


of structure. When fish-
ing for them, concentrate
your efforts in areas that
hold good bottom struc-
ture, such as rock piles,
shipwrecks, or the coun-
ty's artificial reef systems.
As I said before, be sure
to have an extra rod
rigged and ready just in
case a huge cobia inquis-
itively swims behind,
your boat.


Now here is a gutsy move,
and if you are really good
on timing and they are
not, you will pull a port-
tack right at the pin on
the gun and then flop to a
starboard tack in the
clean air ahead of the
fleet. This is not for every-
one because you can go
from first to last if you
miss the timing.
Remember, clean air is
important but sometimes
a good start on starboard
will be better. If you are
on port tack and you see
you have missed your


pressure systems. Cows
will graze in the field as
the low-pressure system
gets closer and they will lie
down during the high-
pressure systems.
Normally, cows will start
feeding a bit more after a
high pressure front passes.
I know this all sounds a
little strange. Start watch-
ing cows and see how
fishing was that day and
you may just become a
believer. Next time you
decide to head out on the
water, double check with
the weather man; he may
be telling you about more
than the weather.


accommodate all. But as
we enter into this delight-
ful boating season, it is
apparent from the recent
track record that a lot of
dangerous people are out
there with the potential
to harm us and our loved
ones. Stay away from
alcohol and post a look-
out at the bow and stern
and you may prevent ,
yourself from becoming
a statistic. You may also
save me from having
another nightmare.


Remember, if you're
not out fishing you're
wishing you were. Get
out and go fishing, cuz' it's
good fer ya!

timing, keep your speed
up, look down the line,
duck the first boat or two
and then tack back in
under those behind them.
What just happened is
you really have position
on those first few boats
and if you have good


speed on them, you can
control them by not let-
ting them tack until you
want them to, because
they will be on a port tack
to cross you. The same
thing can happen to you
if you port tack and then
flop to starboard and


aren't above those behind
you. They will have con-
trol of you, so you will
have to tack, duck them
and then come back to try
to control them when
they tack. This is the part
that really becomes fun
after the start.

Tropic trailer valued at
$25,000. On Saturday,

challenged with the task
of bringing a legal .red-


fish and a legal snook
back to the scales using
their choice of baits. The
top five teams from
Saturday will advance to

Championship Shootout
on Sunday with the win-
ners crowned Maverick
