Police raid meth lab


Attorney accuses FDLE

of conflict in DUI cases


BYTOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


Venice attorney Robert
Harrison said the Florida
Department of Law En-
forcement should not be
involved in the state's breath-
alyzer program.
"The agency that oversees
(the program) should only
have one concern-that the
results be reliable," Harrison
said. "FDLE's concern is not
that the results are reliable-
their concern is making the
results admissible in court."
Harrison and other attor-
neys are representing hun-
dreds of DUI suspects in
Sarasota and Manatee coun-
ties who claim the new
Intoxilyzer 8000 breathalyzer
is unreliable. The problem is
the machine does not warn
the operator when the subject
blows less breath into the
machine than it can measure
reliably (1.1 liters).
Harrison said FDLE being
in charge of all breathalyzer
monitoring in the state fol-
lows an old proverb.

The suspected meth lab is in the apartment directly behind the right side of the decorative panel.'


"It's the fox guarding the
hen house," Harrison said.
"They (FDLE) are not an
unbiased party."
Harrison said FDLE's role
in breath testing represents a
classic conflict of interest.
Not appropriate to
respond
FDLE spokeswoman Heat-
her Smith said she could not
respond to Harrison's com-
ment.
"I don't feel that would be
appropriate," Smith said. "We
are governed under state law."
However, on the matter of
the Intoxilyzer itself, Smith
said FDLE has made fixing
the software (responsible for
the volume problem) a prior-
ity.
She said the machine is
accurate in all but a few
instances..
Harrison said the machine,
in essence, is junk.

Venice police raided a
methamphetamine lab on
the island of Venice at 1:30
a.m. Friday.,
David S. Abel, 20, 125
Airport Ave., Apt. 3, was
arrested and charged with
unlawful possession of listed
chemicals, manufacture of
methamphetamine and pos-
session of drug paraphema-'
lia.
"Officers went into Abel's
apartment, at his invitation,"
Venice Police Sgt. Tom
McNulty said, "at which time
they detected a chemical
odor and visually observed
numerous chemicals that are
used in the manufacturing of
methamphetamine." ,
Methamphetamine is a
stimulant that. supercharges
- and destroys brain cells.
It is made easily in illegal lab-
oratories and has a high

potential for abuse, addiction
and death.
According to the police
report, it was Abel who called
police to say his girlfriend was
creating a disturbance and
could they come over to talk
to her.
McNulty shrugged when
asked why Abel would call
police to settle a domestic
dispute if he was manufactur-
ing meth in his apartment.
The apartment is across
the street from the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Aviation unit
based at the Venice Municipal
Airport.
Tell-tales
The first officers on the
scene went into Abel's apart-
ment with him and the girl to
collect her belongings.
"I noticed a can of Acetone
under the kitchen sink which
was open and in plain view,"
VPD K-9 Officer Jason Adams
wrote in his report. "I noticed


three more containers of
Acetone covered by clothing
in a laundry basket."
Acetone is used in the
manufacture of meth.
The officer also noticed
other items generally used in
the manufacture of metham-


phetamine.
Police raided another
meth lab earlier this year in
Laurel, McNulty said..

FEAR NOT
"Fear of not knowing is the
scariest fear of all.
But don't fear.
We're here for the bad times
and all.".

Lyrics by Island Village
Middle School's Rebecca "
Brothers, 13, music by Austin
Balterria, 12. Sung to school
principal Becky Morris before
the student body Friday, the
day after Morris received
mobilization orders for active
duty.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

It's not every day a school
principal is called to active
duty.
In a week, Island Village
Middle School's science
teacher and founding princi-
pal Becky Morris will go from
being called Ms. Becky by stu-
dents to Maj. Morris by her
subordinates.
She's been on pins and
needles since August after
being activated by the U.S.
Army Reserves..
Still, the mobilization
orders she received Thursday
shocked the mother of three.
Instead of the usual
month's notice, Morris
learned she had only nine
days to get her affairs in order
before what could be an 18-
month deployment.
"It's been a roller coaster,"
she said. "It's one thing for
me, but to put these folks
through it ... It hasn't been a
lot of fun.
"Dragging it out another
month would have been even
more difficult."
Morris leaves for Fort
Bragg next Saturday for addi-
tional training in civil affairs.
Her exact mission is still
unknown, except for the gen-
eral location-the Horn of
Africa. Still considered an
active war zone, Somalia is a


distinct possibility
That's better than the orig-
inal order to serve 24 months
in Iraq.
With more than 19 years in
the Army Reserve under her
belt, Morris will again hook
up with the 7222nd U.S. Army
Medical Support Unit.
It's the same unit she's
served with since 1992.
Farewell
The small Montessori
charter school threw a
farewell party for Morris on
Friday. Intermingled with
tears from staff and parents,
students sang songs they
penned and ceremonially
tied yellow ribbons around
trees on campus.
They've been preparing for
this moment.
"As a charter school, we're
used to the pioneering spirit.
We have that already," Morris
said.
"We're saying our good-
byes and wish her strength,"
said staffer Jolie Holman. The
farewell party was "a chance
to tell her how much we love
her."
Island Village Montessori
School Program Director Kym
Elder said Morris' duties will
be split among four staff
members.
"We're very sad about los-
ing our principal," Elder said.
"When you're a small school
like ours, it makes an even
bigger impact. ... We're going
to be okay, but it leaves a very
big hole."
At home, Morris' mother
came into town yesterday to
help with the transition.
Husband Robert and family
know the drill when it comes
to missing their mother for a
weekend. Now they're pre-
paring for the long haul.
A whiz on the computer,
oldest son Charles is a pro at
instant messaging and has
been practicing video-confer-
encing skills. His mother

BARRON GEORGE COLLIER was a conservationist. He
made his money in advertising and bought up large tracts
of land in Southwest Florida in the 1920s. Collier persuad-
ed the government and the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad to
access his property. Many of the state and national parks,
in Southwest Florida are areas he preserved from devel-
opment. The center of his land holdings was in south-
western Florida. Collier County and Collier-Seminole State

Lights, cameras county


establishes film office


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Filmmakers, get ready to
roll your cameras.
Sarasota County commis-
sioners unanimously ap-
proved $60,000 toward the
establishment of a Film and
Entertainment Office Wed-
nesday, following a brief pre-
sentation by Kathleen Bayliss,
president of the Economic
Development Corporation of
Sarasota County.
Staff will bring forward an
EDC budget and contract
amendments in November to
incorporate both the addi-
tional financial investment
and key strategic deliverables
of the newly created office.
A film task force was
formed in April to research
the opportunities, develop-
ment and continued growth
of the local film industry in
the county. The county's
endorsement of the Film and
Entertainment Office was in
part a result of separate,
unanimous approvals re-
ceived in September from the
Tourism & Economic Devel-


opment Board and Tourist
Development Council.
Both the TEDB and the
TDC advocated the following
recommendations:
Establishment of the Sar-
asota County Film & Enter-
tainment Office
Management and opera-
tions of the office to be pro-
vided by the EDC ..,., .
EDC board of directors to
create a Film & Entertain-
ment. Industry Advisory
Committee
Initial first-year budget of
$200,000, with $140,000 al-
ready procured from Sarasota
Convention & Visitors Bureau
and EDC funds
"Now we'll have a full-time
film commissioner to market
our community for film and
video opportunities, along
with infrastructure issues like
building relationships with
others in the film community
that are here already," Bayliss
said.
The Sarasota County Film
Commission currently exists
within the organizational
structure of the SCVB. Film
commission duties are ad-
ministered by a staff member,


with only 50 percent of that
position devoted to film.
Tourist development tax
funds of $10,000-$20,000
have been provided in the
past through the SCVB to the
film commission annually for
marketing purposes.
The approved $60,000 will
go toward creating the posi-
tion, along with necessary
office furnishings, a compute
er and aWeb site.
Did Bayliss foresee any
immediate film projects on
the horizon?
"It's in its infancy right
now," Bayliss said. "The con-
vention and visitors bureau
will continue to run things
until we have someone in
place, sometime in January."
What potential obstacles
does Bayliss anticipate for the
new film commissioner?
"Film activity has been
down quite a bit in Florida
because of insurance, which
costs so much," Bayliss said.
"So that will be one barrier
we're going to try to over-
come."

VHS students go to the polls


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

With civics no longer being
taught in Florida schools, how
do you get young people
interested in politics?
In an effort to stimulate
excitement in government,
Supervisor of Elections Kathy
Dent decided to use high-
'tech iVotronic machines last
week to hold mock elections
in Sarasota County high
schools.
Students were able to voice
their opinions on candidates.
To make the process even
more interesting, a few "teen"
questions were added.
The questions, made up by
Dent's student advisory
board, gave the high school
students a chance to be heard
on the following subjects:
Should passing the FCAT
be a requirement for gradua-
tion?
If Sarasota were to build a
dedicated teen center, would
you use it?
Do you think the state of
Florida should extend the
times that unaccompanied
16- and 17-year-old drivers
must be off the streets?
Barbara Bain, voter educa-

tion and outreach coordina-
tor for Sarasota County, was
at Venice High School Friday.
Bain said that the program
makes students feel they are
part of the electoral process
and that their vote counts.
"We will be sending an e-
mail to the high schools the
day after the election," she
said.
Bain indicated the supervi-
sor's office will be looking
closely at the answers to the
teen questions.
New experience
Different people got differ-
ent things out of the voting
exercise.
"I never voted for anything
before," said Nikki Sharro,
VHS freshman. "I think this is
a good idea for usto be able to
voice our opinion."
Barbara Farrar, social stud-
ies department chairwoman
at VHS said voting can intimi-
date students.
"Knowing what the
process is like will take the
mystery out of voting," she
said.
Students won't be intimi-
dated as adults when they
realize how quick and easy
the process is, she said..
Seniors atVHS who are 17-


18 years old can pre-register
to vote. Classes teach stu-
dents about mail-in, early,
absentee and election day
voting.
"Statistics show that peo-
ple who have access to their
jurisdiction's voting system
prior to an election are nice
as like to go to the polls on
election day," Dent said. "It is
our hope that the mock elec-
tions will help to increase
turnout among 18- to 20-
year-olds and engage our
youth more actively in the
electoral process."
Dent could have been
referring to students like Ben
Parson, who was reluctant to
enter the voting room Friday.
"My teacher made me vote
and I don't care either way
who wins," he said.
Farrar thought he would
'change his mind once he
found out he could give his
opinion on the teen ques-
tions.
"That's what this is all
about: opening up student's
minds to new things,"she
said.

Lounsbury: good humor makes for good business


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER


This is the time of year
when people expect to see
Halloween decorations and
costumes at Venice city hall.
Deputy Finance Director
JoAnne Lounsbury has been
the ringleader of that effort
for 24 years.
Although this year the
office decorations have been
somewhat subdued because
of painting going on through-
out the building, you can bet
Lounsbury will come up with
another outlandish costume
for herself and inspire her co-
workers to do the same.
Lounsbury has appeared
as a variety of witches, Cleo-
patra, Minnie Mouse, a hobo,
a hippy, an angel, a nun and
the Statue of Liberty.
Her co-workers in the
finance department follow
suit and employees in the


other departments also dress
for the day in a friendly com-
petition. They top off the
Halloween observance by fill-
ing one of the city hall confer-
ence rooms with holiday food
and treats in a potluck-style,
all-day nibbling feast.
Some customers may be
surprised to deal with cos-
tumed employees that day,
but many look forward to the
experience and enjoy the
humor they reflect. The key to
that pleasure is that they still
manage to get their work
done.
Up the ladder
Hired by Finance Director
Bill Kern in 1982 as a secre-
tary, Lounsbury spent the first
several months uncertain
about her status.
"That department had not
had a secretary before," she
said, "so Mr. Kern told me up
front that they were just


DETAILS
Deputy Finance Director JoAnne Lounsbury, who has been wid-
owed since 1993, lives in North Port with her cat "Orphie" short
for "orphan" because she found him wandering in the woods
adjacent to her home some 13 years ago.

She grew up in Peekskill, N.Y., a small town on the Hudson River
just north of New York City. Her independent and healthy 90-year-
old mother lives by herself in the same house where JoAnne grew
up.
She has a 39-year-old son and four grandchildren in Michigan. Her
daughter, Stacy McKenzie, 35, lives in North Port and works in the
city's utilities department as its administrative coordinator.

experimenting with it-he
couldn't assure me they
would keep the position. That
made me work all the harder
to prove to him that the job
was needed. Thankfully, they
kept me on." ,
Lounsbury rose in respon-
sibility and authority over the
years, reaching her current
post in 1991, going from
doing everything by hand to
doing it all by computer.
In that time she has
worked for three very differ-
ent finance directors whom
she describes in family terms.
"Mr. Kern was a father fig-
ure to everyone," she said,
"very quiet, gentle and laid
back, but always very sensi-
tive to employees who were
having problems.
"After Mr. Kern retired,"
she said, "Mike McPhail was
appointed to the director's
position. 'Mr. Mike,' as we all
called him, was more like a
favorite uncle that you could
go to for instruction whenev-
er questions came up."
A few months ago, Jeff
Snyder became the city's
finance director. With a
strong background in audit-
ing, he is very detail-oriented
and precise in his work.
"Jeff is like a brother," said
Lounsbury. "He has a smile
and a handshake for every-
one each day, so people just
enjoy being around him."

She fell under the Presley
spell as a teenager when he
first appeared on the old Ed
Sullivan Show, and followed
his career closely until his
death. But the closest she has
come to an "Elvis sighting"
was when she attended a
concert in her hometown by
an Elvis imitator.
"My ultimate goal now,"


said Lounsbury, "is to go to
one of those shows inVegas or
somewhere that has a really
good Elvis impersonator. Un-

back to the drawing board.
"This one ought to go to
the dumpster," he said.
Harrison said FDLE al-
lowed the machine to operate
unchecked for months.
He said the machines have
been storing data, and the
data would have shown the
machine was not operating
properly from the very first
week it went on-line.
He said FDLE should have
been reviewing the data to
determine if the Intoxilyzer
8000 was working properly.
"They didn't (care) and
they don't care if it's reliable,"
Harrison said.
Sarasota and Manatee
counties started using the
8000 model March 27. There
are five in use in Sarasota
County.
Harrison hesitated to
name a state agency that
should be responsible for the
breathalyzer.
Until 1993, the state agency
responsible for breath tests
was the Department of
Health and Rehabilitative
Services.
Harrison said the problems
began when the state
declared breath testing
should be law enforcement's
job.

OUR VIEW




Shapiro is better qualified to represent us


A couple of weeks ago we stated in an edi-
torial that we were going to defer making
endorsements in some races because we
didn't want to pick someone, then regret the
decision as the mud started to flow.
This was one of the races we were refer-
ring to.
The Republican primary for the District 70
House seat was a war, with Doug Holder and
Rory Dubin taking turns blasting each other
and Jon Kleiber and Elizabeth Cuevas-
Neunder trying to avoid getting caught in the
crossfire. Holder prevailed, but the campaign
left us disgusted.
Meanwhile, back at the Democratic
ranch, David Shapiro and Ernie Zavodnyik
were focusing on the issues and their qualifi-
cations for office, with nary a mean word
-passing between them. It was enough to give


politics a good name.
We're pleased to say this has been a clean
campaign to date, and we hope it stays that
way. But Holder still doesn't impress us as a
candidate, so we recommend David Shapiro.
Shapiro is a long-time county resident
while Holder is a relative newcomer to the
area. Shapiro's connection to his prospective
constituents is much deeper and much
broader.
Both are businessmen, but Shapiro also
has a law degree and years of legal experi-
ence. Some may question sending yet anoth-
er lawyer to Tallahassee; we think it's a good
thing when lawmakers know about the law.
Shapiro's motivation to run came from
dealing with clients who have fallen through
cracks in the system, or otherwise found
themselves shortchanged through no fault of


their own. Holder felt that businesses were
being overtaxed and over-regulated, and
decided to try to go to Tallahassee to change
that.
None of that makes Holder a poor choice,
but it makes Shapiro a better one, in our
eyes.
We agree with Shapiro more on the issues
as well.
Although his views are mostly in line with
his party's, he is also critical of his
Democratic cohorts for sometime dealing
with issues too much on a political basis. We
think that's a fault of both parties and too
many candidates.
Shapiro is willing to look at increasing the
homestead tax exemption and favors mak-
ing it portable. Holder took that position
later in the campaign. We aren't sure either


idea is workable, but it's a debate that needs
to be held.
Shapiro questions the emphasis put on
the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test
and criticized the level of state funding of
education. Those are messages we've beep
sending out for years.
Holder has a better grasp on the area's
problems than he did when we inter-
viewed him before the primary, but his
solutions for them are still vague and too
reliant on providing incentives to business
and then trusting that market forces will
make things right.
On the whole, Shapiro is better informed
and better prepared to represent this area in
the state Legislature.
We recommend David Shapiro for Florida
-House District 70.


Thanks for




your input


BOB VEDDER



We are running a survey
'that I hope you take the
.time to complete. It is rather
long but will give us a good
feel about the newspaper and
communities we serve. You
can reach it online by access-
ing our Web, site, venicegon-
dolier.com, and clicking on
the box at the top for the sur-
vey.
There is a $500 prize,
among others that will be
given away to lucky winners.
Odds of winning are better
than winning the lottery.
Let me pass on some of the
comments we have received
so far.
As always, people want
more local news. That cer-
tainly is our mission. We try to
have almost all local news; we
just need to make it more per-
tinent to'you. As I mentioned,
we are working to increase
our story count and make
stories shorter. That will give
you more news.
Some people said they
would like to see a little less
city news and more about the
county, and areas such as
Nokomis and South Venice.
This is worthy criticism.
We have a full-time county
reporter and get some great
material from writers in
Osprey and Sarasota, but this
is a valid concern that we are
addressing. Our regular
columns tend'to be city ori-
ented and too much of the
same stuff. The goal is to give
you more insight into ,the
county, the schools and other
.interesting things, such as the
environment. If you think you
know someone who would be
good for that assignment, let
Editor Bob Mudge know.
One person felt that the
paper is not appealing to the
eye. That also is always a con-
cern. With the long stories
come big, gray expanses; and
some of our graphics are not
arranged well. To help, we
had in one of the best-known
newspaper designers in the
country in this week to give us
some advice.
One person wanted more
crime news. It is always funny
how people tell us they are
tired of the media only
reporting bad news, yet the


fact of the matter is Police
Beat is always near the top of
the most-read features.
One of the things we did
recently was to add an entire
section called the South
County Record on Sunday to
do a better job of getting all of
the legal information into the
paper. This includes mar-
riages, divorces and things
like property transfers.
One person wanted more
crossword puzzles on
Sunday. We added puzzle
pages to our TVbook recently,
including the popular
Sudokos. I doubt we can do
much more there. One per-
son mentioned the "Wonder
Word" puzzle, a first-time
thing for me. We need to
research that a little. It is hard
to do something for everyone.
One person suggested we
add color, and that one baf-
fles me. We are using three
times the color ink we did a
year ago, meaning we have
color on three times as many
pages. We can use it different-
ly, and that we are going to
look at.
There was a call, to make
our paper "younger," and that
also is good input. One of the
ways will be to make it a
quicker read; another will be
to make it more lively. But still
we need to write more, to a
younger audience. That is a
goal.
Another comment was to
write more about regular
people, or as they put it "regu-
lar Joes." That kind of writing
is popular and we haven't
done enough of it. We do fea-
tures on people, but just not
enough.
For instance, we do pieces
on war heroes all the time.
Tighter writing should allow
more of this. We have been
working on a feature that
would be what people are
talking about around the
area. This would be regular
people at all kinds of venues.
That could be real fun and, I
hope we can get that going
soon.
There were some personal
shots at some of our contrib-
utors, but I won't pass along
any of those except the one
person who wanted to get rid
of me. It probably would have
had more credibility if he
spelled my name right. But he
will need to get in line.
Get more accurate was
another thing mentioned; to
that end we have hired anoth-
er proofreader.
Please help us further by
doing the survey and giving
us feedback.

Bumper sticker: I child-
proofed my house but they
still get in.

Witness to a Venice "tipping point"


Editor:
In his classic 2000 best-selling book, "The Tipping Point:
How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference," author Malcolm
Gladwell introduced into popular culture the concept of "the
tipping point" how a small, often inconsequential action
can manifest'itself into something.extraordinary.
Although not trying to overdramatize a single occurrence,
the fact that Venice Council chambers was filled this week with
representatives for a new, local grassroots organization called
Venice for a Positive Future was exciting indeed.
The galvanizing issue was the designation for a passive use
of Tramonto Vista Park (the former wastewater treatment
plant, adjacent to Sharky's). To be fair, this had been a decision
by a prior city council that received little public comment other
than from those who wished no improvements at all.
Well, along comes Venice for a Positive Future and in a mat-
ter of weeks it generates 900-plus names on a petition, orga-
nizes hundreds of e-mails to members of city council and fills
'.council chambers with supporters lobbying for a family-
friendly, active Tramonto Vista Park.
To see and hear their spokespersons and to observe their
members, a true cross-section of Venice, was exciting.
We can all agree with Mayor Fred Hammett's comment,
hoping that it will not be a single-issue group. Something tells
meit's not, although since most work full-time jobs a 1:30 p.m.,
every-other-Tuesday-afternoon council meeting may be a bit
tough to attend.
However, I think this group and the momentum it has gen-
erated is astounding and will continue to resonant in Venice
City Hall for some time to come.
Perhaps we've witnessed a real, honest to goodness, exam-
ple of the "tipping point."


Chamber should act only
if all members agree
Editor:
I'm writing to the citizens
of this fine town ofVenice as a
concerned citizen and small-
business owner.
It has come to my atten-
tion that our chamber of
commerce, supported by
paid memberships, of which I
am one, is displaying political
signs outside its front doors.


These signs tell pi

members.
Voting "Yes" on


ment 3 is not protecting the
existing constitution; it is
actually changing it to require
a 60 percent majority vote to
pass any new amendment
instead of the existing simple
majority, promoting gridlock
as usual.
This amendment comes
straight from our governor,
Jeb Bush, who is still upset by
the passage of the class-size
amendment by a simple maj-
ority. He was so upset by its
passage that he tried to over-
turn the peoples' vote by
appealing to the Florida
Supreme Court, but the court
held for the people. Sound
familiar?
So on Nov. 7, please under-
stand the issues and vote
responsibly, but please get
out and vote.

A pox on both parties


Bah to parties. Lefs face it,
both parties are corrupt, dis-
honest, arrogant, hypocritical,
collectively living in a vacuum
and utterly unconcerned with
the fate of the average Ame-
rican. Think you or one of your
kids matter one bit to Howard
Dean or Karl Rove? Meanwhile,
the big money, over-organized
nature of our contemporary
system prevents the emergence
of the viable third party we so
desperately need. Wouldn't
America be better off if- every
parasite living off the election
campaign circus were to disap-
pear tomorrow? Why should we
the people suffer the tyranny of
mediocre, unelected men and
women whose selfish agendas
rarely reflect our needs? The
men and women in uniform
who died for this country across
the last 23 decades didn't give
their lives so that we could vote
straight party lines. Party lines
are for communists, fascists and
fools. Neither party is ever 100
percent right It is our duty to
our country to vote for the best
man or woman, not just for the
candidate the back-room boys
shoved at us. Don't vote for the
Democratic or Republican
party in November. Vote for
individuals. Vote on the issues.
Vote for what you really believe.
Vote for the common good. Vote


for America.

However, I have a complaint
about a repeatablyincorrect list-
ing. The notice of the monthly
meeting of the Republican Club
of South Sarasota County was
correctly listed under
Wednesday, Oct. 11, the day of
the meeting. Directly beneath
was the announcement that the
Democratic Club of Sarasota
would meet on Saturday, Oct.
14, three days before the actual
day of the meeting. It seems to
be a common practice of your
newspaper to allow the
Democrats to conveniently
announce their meetings sever-
al days ahead of schedule and
on the same day of the
.Republican meeting. This has
the appearance of a liberal bias
on the part of your newspaper.
Either activities will be listed on

No interest in red tide cure


BY BOB RIGBY
GUEST COLUMNIST

In a Letter to the Editor in
the Oct. 20 Venice Gondolier
Sun, Clifton Stiles questions
the lack of support for my red
tide cure.
Venice City Council also
questioned the lack of state
and county support at several
city council meetings. Venice
is the only government orga-
nization that has offered
financial support to the test-
ing program by Charlie
Powell and Dan Kelly and the
students in the Venice High
School science department.
Oct. 19, the Fish and,
Wildlife Research Institute
responded to a letter request-
ing support for a red tide
demonstration project sent
by Mayor Fred Hammett.
Mayor Hammett sent letters
to the governor of Florida,
both U.S. senators, the
Florida health department
and FWRI.
The FWRI letter is trying to
delay any further positive
news coming from the VHS
Science Department con-
cerning my killing formula.
The latest news after my
formula was published on the
Internet was FWRI's jumping
on the fact that a portion of
the formula contains sodium
hypochlorite (NaOCI). It
couldn't wait to describe the
formula as "bleach."
An old-timer once told me
not to include everything in a.
patent application; that way,
those trying to steal your
patent will waste their money
-when their efforts fail to suc-
ceed.
Last year I was asked by
two state legislators to con-
duct a demonstration project.
I agreed, and went to work.


putting together all the essen-
tial items needed for the
demonstration.
I advised the legislators
that it will take two years to
assemble all the necessary
equipment, acquire the'
marine equipment, hire the
proper staff, do all the tweak-
ing to the dispensing appara-
tus and conduct the in-water
test to ensure proper dispens-
ing of the formula. I'm 67
years old, which means I'll be
69 by the time we're ready to
start the red tide killing
process.
There are those who now
say my formula will indis-
criminately kill other organ-
isms, and its use could create
long-term damage to the gulf.
Keep in mind our goal is to kill
a bloom in its early stages,
and not have to wait until
there is a 5,000-square-mile
bloom.
Further, when comparing
the continued loss of mana-
tees, sea turtles, porpoise,
millions of pounds of fish
stock and untold number of
shore birds, the loss of some
unidentified organism in the
bloom area becomes insignif-
icant.
The statements by these
individuals are not supported
by any scientific test or fact, or
they would have said so. They
did say in the letter to Mayor
Hammett that Mote and
FWRI are still pushing the
ozone treatment (which kills
everything) and clay slurry
(which would cover the gulf
bottom with mud, and indis-
criminately kill bottom crea-
tures) at a cost of $200 to $300
per ton, and require 63,000
tons in a bloom of 500 square
miles. I didn't do the math.
They also said my treat-
ment with sodium hypochio-


rite would require 50 million
gallons. I'm glad to know that
- never figured it myself -
but they had a ready answer,
and didn't even know what
the formula contained until a
few weeks ago.
In the past year the excuse
by the state not to use my for-
mula has been that I didn't
have the U.S. patent issued,
although I did have the offi-
cial patent-pending status.
Now that the patent has been
published, the excuse is the
collateral damage that may
be caused, even though there
is no supporting scientific
information.
Imagine a business in the
United States not being able
to sell products with a patent
pending. This country would
crumble if that were the law.
But that's the state require-
ment for me.
I find it interesting that
after 14 years on my part, and
almost five years since the
city offered funding to the sci-
ence department at the
school, and more than three
years of testing at the school,
only one time has FWRI sent
a representative to visit the
school.
Last year, among Mote, the
University of South Florida
and FWRI, a sum of nearly
$40 million was spent study-
ing red tide. Red tide research
in the United States cost $135
million a year. The total
expenditure at the school for
testing to confirm my formu-
la: $5,712.00.
One of the organizations
now wanting to jump in and
take over the program has
requested $300,000 of federal
and state money to conduct a
peer review of my formula.
Where does this end? I'll
tell you. You have become


doomed to what President
Eisenhower described as the
military-industrial complex
that has now grown to
include countless research
organizations being perpetu-
ated by your tax money. If
they can't get it at one govern-
ment program, they just send
a grant request to another,
until they've got your money.
Until such time as the vot-
ers unite and demand sensi-
ble action from elected offi-
cials, you'll be able to enjoy
the stench of red tide on
Florida's West Coast.
Oh, by the way, with all the.
research money that's been
spent studying red tide, why
didn't they check out bleach
first?

Juvenile assessment center closed


in dispute over sensitivity training


BYJACKGURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Area law enforcement offi-
cials will attempt to resolve a
beef with the Florida
Department of Juvenile
Justice that has closed a juve-
nile assessment center at the
Sarasota County Jail and
encouraged officers to only
apprehend the most flagrant
offenders.
On Monday, Capt. Kurt
Hoffman, the attorney for
Sheriff Bill Balkwill, will con-
fer with state authorities and
attempt to work out an
arrangement that would
eliminate 20 hours of sensi-
tivity training for about 180
corrections officers and their
supervisors.
"Our jail is filled to capaci-
ty and it would be difficult to
rotate entire shifts for this,"
Hoffman told the Pelican
Press. "The requirement
would affect anyone who'1
comes into contact with juve-
niles at the jail, even road
patrol deputies who help out
when they're needed."
The dispute stems from
provisions in the Martin Lee
Anderson Act of 2006, an
overhaul of the state's juvenile
justice system adopted by the
lorida Legislature last spring
find named..f4rithhetqeetiager
who tragically died at a Bay
County boot camp.


Provisions of the law elimi-
nate statutory authority for
boot camps, but allow juris-
dictions to replace them with
Sheriff's Training and Respect
programs operated by sworn
law enforcement officials
who have undergone 20
hours of sensitivity training.
The Protective Action
Response training is mandat-
ed for everybody who comes
into contact with juveniles
while they are in custody, and
wouldn't be a problem for
Sarasota County if its juvenile
assessment center were
located outside the county
jail.
Many Florida jurisdictions
separate juvenile intake and
screening facilities from their
jails to avoid contract with
adult inmates, but Sarasota
County has balked at the-
notion of segregating them
and has operated its juvenile
assessment center in the jail.
As a result, hundreds of.
deputies and corrections offi-

cers routinely come into con-
tact with juveniles during the
normal course of daily activi-
ties. Balkwill contends that
since they're not involved in
the juvenile programs, they
shouldn't have to undergo the
training.
This showdown between,,
-local and -state,,,authorities'
began on Oct. 1, when
deputies and officers from


area police departments
began to ask for juvenile
background checks on their
cell phones, and only incar-
cerate youths whose records
indicate they are a public
threat.
On an average day, about
10 Sarasota County juveniles
are detained and four trans-
ported to a Manatee County
holding facility until their
cases are resolved through
the courts. The number has
significantly dropped in
recent weeks.
"Since Oct. 1, we're only
transporting about 1.5 juve-
niles to Manatee County a
day," said Sarasota County
Criminal Justice Coordinator
James Schulz. "We feel the
state should reconsider. It's
clear the newlawwas focused
on STAR programs and not!
juvenile assessment centers."
The county commission
briefly discussed why the
local juvenile assessment
center had been closed at its
Oct. 10 meeting, and directed,
government lawyers to seek a
declaratory judgment from
the courts about mandatory
training requirements in the
new law.
Provisions of the Martin'
Lee Anderson, Act, prohibit,
certain verbal and physical
"Intervention technique's, and'.
the use of mechanical
restraints, aerosol and chemi-


cal agents, and taser guns
when law enforcement
authorities deal with juve-
niles in STAR programs.
"It requires officers to dis-
arm themselves, which is all
right in stand-alone juvenile
assessment centers," Shulz
said, "but not in a jail. Many
people around the juveniles
are not assigned to the center,
but this law requires anyone
in contact with them to dis-
arm."
In 1998, state authorities
encouraged Sarasota County
to provide land for a 52-bed
separate detention facility
where juveniles could be
assessed and, if necessary,
detained. The county com-
mission dragged its feet and
never committed to the pro-
ject.
State funds for the project
were eventually shifted so 20
new beds could be allocated
to an expansion project in
Manatee County facility, and
20 beds added to a Marion
County facility that wanted to.
improve its intake and
screening capability.
The state currently allo-
cates $210,000 a year for the
operation of a juvenile assess-
ment center in Sarasota
County, while the county allo-
cates $300,000 so Coastal
Behavioral Health'"`- Caire-
experts can screerf troubled
youths and make referrals.

Losing in the region semifi-
nals last year at home was a
bitter pill for the Plant High
volleyball team to swallow.
Lady Panther coach
Leanna Taylor figured the
best way to handle it is to bite
your lip, don't get mad, but
get even.
Plant got its revenge
Saturday at a packed Teepee,
dominating Venice in three
straight games, 25-16, 25-19,
25-21.
The Lady Panthers (25-2),
ranked No. 1 in Class 5A,
advance to the region finals
Thursday against Clearwater.
Venice, last year's state
champion, saw its season end
at 25-5. Two of the losses
came at the hands of Plant.
"We got overmatched,"
said Venice coach Brian
Wheatley, who defeated Plant
in five thrilling games in last
year's region semis. "I'd be
surprised if they didn't win
the state championship. I
don't think any team in the
state could have beaten them
today.".
After securing match point
and shaking hands, the Plant
players celebrated like they
had won the state title.
"This was pretty much the
state championship," rea-
soned Wheatley.
Energetic Lady Panther
coach Leanna Tayloi did a-'
super job of keeping her girls
focused on the task at hand.
The Teepee was loud and hot,
but the Lady Panthers were
not distracted.
"We came in relaxed,"
Taylor said. "The pressure was
on Venice. They were last
year's state champions. We
just wanted to come out, have
fun and see what the Teepee
is all about."
Fun, they had.
Plant used superior fire-
power up front to deflate the
Lady Indians. University of
Miami-bound leaper Chris-
tine Williamson had a field
day denting the Venice side of
the floor. Right side Kaley
Read was another big thorn
with her kills, blocks and serv-
ing. Left side Jennifer
Chamblee may be small, but
she packed a big wallop with
a number of kills. Tall setter
Kellie Catanach was adept at
getting them the ball.
"Williamson was unstop-
pable," Taylor said. "We have


five offensive weapons. It
makes it tough."
Venice was lacking in
judgement in serve reception
and suffered from communi-
cation problems on defense.
Plant had the momentum
throughout the day, never
allowing Venice and its fans to
get into the match.
Venice only had three leads
all night-twice in game one
and once in game three.
The leads in game one
were in the early going.
Nursing a 9-8 lead, Plant
exploded for seven straight
points to take control of game
one. Read served up six of
them. Chamblee was, in par-'
ticular, dangerous down the
stretch with one kill after
another.
Venice never did lead in
game two. The Lady Indians
hung close, inching to within
12-11 following a kill by mid-
dle Ashley Graf. But then
Plant went on another back-
breaking run. The Lady
Panthers rang up eight
straight points. Once again,
Read was at the service stripe.
Venice made its best run at
Plant in game three.
"It was basically a birthday
party with 17 (Williamson)
and 18 (Read) running the
middle," Wheatley said. "We
made some adjustments and
put some hands in their face."
Venice clutched onto a 7-6
lead when it happened again
--4-Plant went on a run.
Chamblee served up five
straight points and Read was
unconscious at the net with
blocks and kills.
All of a sudden, it was 12-7.
Venice kept fighting.
Outside Natalie Gaudreau
heated up. Hitters Graf and
Casie Richards got it going.
Setter Nickie Halbert wouldn't
quit. With Jill Allen at the
stripe, Venice crept to within
21-20 and 22-21.
Read once again rose to
the challenge with a kill and
block.
The Venice comeback had
fallen just short.
"The last game, we served
tougher," Wheatley said. "I
felt that if we got them to
game four, then we could
have won the match."
Not this year.
"I'll see Venice again,"
Taylor said.
"We've got a rivalry going.
He (Wheatley) pushes me to
be a better coach."
And vice versa.

The future looks bright


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


While the Venice High vol-
leyball team may be down
following Saturday's region
semifinal loss to Plant, the
Lady. Indians will soon be
back on their feet, hungry for
more.
The club season will begin
with the new year. Venetian
Bay is the breeding ground
for future court success.
The best news is that
Venice won't be hit hard by
graduation.
While outside hitter
Natalie Gaudreau is all-state
caliber, and middle Ashley
Graf is a fine player, the rest of
the cast will be returning.
That adds up to 10 players
coming back.
Middle hitter Casie
Richards came a long way as a
sophomore.
Setter par excellence
Nickie Halbert will be back for
her senior season.
Talented outsides Casey
Taylor, Kaylee Ream and


Venice's Casey Taylor receives a serve as Julie Howlett (2) and
Taylor Capasso look on.


Amanda Garofalo will be
seniors.
On the back line, libero
Julie Howlett and defensive
specialist Danielle Witte are
ready for more.
There were 'three fine
freshmen on the varsity
squad-all who saw valuable
playing time. All was consid-
erable playing time against
Plant. We're talking about hit-
ter Jill Allen, outside Dorothy
Rahal and setter Taylor
Capasso.


Gaudreau and Graf will be
replaced by players from Jay
Lanham's unbeaten junior
varsity squad.
Coach Brian Wheatley will
be in his 14th season. Trusty
assistants Barb Ginn, Kristen
Batt and Gary Halbert will
again lend their knowledge.
Expect another 20 win sea-
son, another crack at Plant
and perhaps a return to
Lakeland for the state Final
Four.

Lady Indian harriers qualify for regional meet


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR
In the end, it all worked out
for the Venice High girls cross
country team.
They ran just well enough
in Friday's Class 3A District 6
Meet in beautiful Caloosa-
hatchee Park to qualify for
this coming Saturday's
regional meet.
The Lady Indians placed
sixth out of 14 schools run-
ning. The top six earned the
trip to regions, which will be
held in Fort Myers.
While girls coach Brenda
Clark is happy the season
lives on, she knew her girls
didn't run their best races.
"The same thing hap-
pened last year," she said.
"We ran eighth in the district
and just made the regionals.
In regionals, they ran the race
of their lives and finished
fourth."
Venice ended up going to
the state finals in Dade City.
All things pointed to a
good run Friday. The Lady
Indians got to the park locat-
ed in Alval in plenty of time.
They stretched. The morning
was cool. The skies were blue.
One problem was where

"We were all the way to one
side and we got boxed out,"
Clark said. "The girls were
shuffled back and it was hard
to pass on the narrow
course."
The Lady Indians top fin-
isher-sophomore Amberose
Courville-echoed those sen-
timents.
"It's a great course and a
beautiful day," said Courville,
who finished in 32nd place
out of 88 runners. "We had a
bad starting position. The
course got skinny and girls
were pushing each other. I got
pushed into a bush."
Freshman Rosa Canas ran
right with Courville and fin-
ished 33rd. Their times over
the 5k course were 23:14 and

Consultant is an angel in the community


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER


There are angels you may
not recognize because you
can't see their wings.
According to her clients, Patty
Murphy is one of them.
"I don't know where this
woman hides her wings, but
they are there. You can be sure
of it," said Hilda Carter,
Murphy's 900th client.
Murphy is the community
y information consultant for
CHIP-Community Health
Improvement Partnership-
which is funded in part
by Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice.
A single mom who was
once homeless, Murphy
knows what it's like to spend
time in a shelter.
"Everyone goes through a
rough period during their
lives," she said. "When you
have been helped by some-
one you are more likely to
help others."
Among other things,
Murphy's experience taught


her persistence. Now she uses
that strength advocating for
her clients. When she doesn't
get an answer from one
agency, she calls another one
for help.
"Each client feels like they
are the only one she has,"
Carter said.
She needed help with a car
repair, so when she saw the
information booth at the
Goodwill Center in Venice,
she decided to contact CHIP
for help.
"I had been diagnosed
with cancer and couldn't
work. Then my car broke
down. I wasn't even able to
get to my treatments," she
said.
Carter's.world was falling
apart. Then she met Murphy.
She said Murphy became a
friend when she needed one
most.
"She called me at home to
find out how I did with my
treatment and helped me
find things like clothes and a
wig to wear," Carter said.
Murphy also helped Carter
get a glucose meter for testing

Falls apart
Murphy said that when
people have a medical emer-
\ agency, everything in their life
falls apart.
"As they go for treatment
they may need a babysitter to
watch their children, or a
place to stay when they can't
pay their rent," she said. "It is
all connected and things tend
to collapse if the illness gets
worse."
Murphy sees herself as a
channel between the many
available services and her
clients.
By the time people reach
Murphy, they have usually
exhausted all of their options.
"I tell them to take baby
steps-one step at a time,"
she said.
Tom Pfaff, chaplain and
director of neighborhood
development for CHIP, said
Murphy has been able to
assist 90 percent of the 900
people she has seen in the 18
months she's been a part of
CHIP
"Previously, CHIP'had a
rate of 50 percent 'BP' con-
nection," he said, 'BP' is
'before Patty.'"
He said she has raised the
standard of providing care for
people.
CHIP is made possible
through grants initiated by
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice, the
Sarasota Health. Department,


SCOPE and most area hospi-
tals, including Venice
Regional Medical Center.
"We are very thankful for
. these grants. Our previous
grant expired the end of,
October, and through the
generosity of these organiza-
tions it has been extended,"
Pfaff said.
Directory
A new resource, the Health
& Human Services Resource
Directory 2006, has 'recently
been published and is avail-
able, thanks to the Venice
Gondolier Sun, Murphy said.
Murphy was instrumental
in developing the directory
printed by the paper. It is
available free at any. of the
CHIP locations in Venice.
"I never give up when it
comes to helping a client,"
Murphy said "not with amaz-
ing resources available to
them."
You can e-mail Susan
Cairo at scairo@venicegon-
dolier.com.


HOW YOU CAN HELP
Women's and men's clothing
and household goods can be
donated to Goodwill. The
CHIP office will accept new
cosmetics for teenagers, dis-
posable diapers, pet food and
cleaning items. Toiletries also
are needed. Woodmere Park
Blvd., 861-1277

herniated
(bulging) disc can
press on the nerves of the spine
1 causing a great deal of pain,
numbness, tingling, or weakness,
all of which are symptoms of conditions
such as sciatica. Other disc-related
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.

RY MARY APOSTOUI Where to start?


STAFF WRITER

Haunted by the destruc-
tion and need caused by
Hurricane Katrina, teenagers
Chris Raney and Brian
Allenduff took action.
Knowing that Missy Carfield,
Grace United Methodist
Church youth minister, was
looking for mission opportu-
nities abroad for their youth
group, the boys told her a
place closer to home needed*
them more. That place was
Biloxi, Miss.
Carfield agreed.
SThrough the United
Methodist Center On Relief,
she was referred to the Rev.
Edward Moses of St. Paul
United Methodist Church in
Biloxi. His congregation had
suffered considerable. hard-
ships and was scattered.
Along with his pastoral
duties, Moses found himself
organizing work crews and
identifying the needs of his
congregation. Many in his
church were displaced, with-
out work and facing huge
renovation projects.
But help was on the way.
Three teams of GUMC
youth and adult volunteers,
armed with tools, supplies,
air mattresses and cash trad-
ed their summer vacations
for the reconstruction chain
gang.


"When you get there, you
look at it and say, where do we
start?" said Ginny Derrough,
local Realtor and wife of
GUMC Pastor Tom Derrough.
"In looking through the
ruins, this could easily have
been us, liing in a hurricane-
prone state," she said.
While the task ahead was
daunting to the new Biloxi
arrivals, they began by wor-
shiping with Moses' church
family and sharing a commu-
nity-style meal together.
And then they tackled Mrs.
Cherry's 100-year-old home.
Walls were gutted, floors
stripped, .roofs replaced.
Working together, the teams
framed the interior, hung dry-
wall, primed and painted., In
their spare time, they rented a
lift and painted the church
where they were staying.
"I was lucky," Raney said.
"My dad always did a lot of
projects around the house.
He taught me how to do car-
pentry kinds of things, and
that really came in handy
here. We framed and installed
all of the windows, doors and
hardware," he said. "Travis
(Tolar) and I worked together
and built the back deck. That
was our little project."
A large stump had been
left in the yard after a tree was

aThe wol, the environment and us


LARRY ALLAN
FRESH AIR COLUMNIST


This election and the envi-
ronment are closely tied to
the continuation or the
obliteration of the gray
wolf (and other) species. I
don't mean to downplay the
importance of the voting
decisions we make concern-
ing the war in Iraq, the home-
stead exemption and taxes,
and health care costs, to
name just a few important
issues.
But all species are depen-
dent on our votes, our deci-
sions right now.
The famed Indian peace
advocate, Gandhi, once said,
"The greatness of a nation,
and its moral progress, can be
judged by the way its animals
are treated." He wasn't just
speaking of domestic species
like dogs, cats, horses and cat-
tle.
It has been well document-
ed by knowledgeable people
that the loss of habitat is the
greatest single threat to the
continued existence of many,
many species today. Among
them are our own Florida
panther, Florida black bear
and scrub jay, just to name
three species currently being
threatened with dire circum-


stances.
National wildlife refuges
were established to set aside
some federal lands to offset
the loss of habitat resulting
from our growing population
and expansion into previous-
ly unoccupied territories.
There are refuges in every
state in the nation which help
provide sanctuary that pro-
tects thousands of types of
plants and animals. These
refuges have been called "a
wildlife conservation concept
unparalleled in the world" by
the Defenders of Wildlife
Organization.
And now even the refuges
are being threatened. This is
where your vote comes into
play. Global warming is
destroying some, clear-cut
logging is threatening others,
exploration for oil and gas will
destroy still more!
Here's how the changes in
climate are likely to affect
just one of those wildlife
refuges here in Florida,
according to Krista Schlyer,
who reported this for
Defenders magazine. "The
U.S. Environmental Pro-
tection Agency predicts a 2-
to 4-foot rise in sea level
over the next century along
much of the coastal United
States. Merrit Island in
Florida would see a drown-
ing of key nesting areas for
birds and turtles, and loss of
habitat for countless coastal
lowland species," she wrote.
It should be noted that
wetland-dependent birds
who winter here are also


being threatened in their
nesting grounds in northern
Canada by. "warming-
induced drought," this same
article points out. The nests
fail in dry years.
A biologist in Alaska, Dave
Person, did a study that
showed 40 to 50 deer could be
sustained per square mile of
old-growth forest. On the
other hand, second-growth
forests only support about
three deer per square mile.
And fewer deer mean fewer
wolves. His conclusion?
"Clear-cut logging sets in
motion a pattern of change
that upsets predator-prey
dynamics several decades
into the future."
'There are some complex
decisions to be made in the
very near future. Our poll rical
leaders will point the way.
And we're about to choose
who those political leaders
will be. Do we know where
they stand on these very
important issues which will
undoubtedly determine the
fate of so many species?
Please find out, before you
cast your ballot.
Spirit of the wolf, grant this
prayer...
that all can live as one with
nature,
and peace reign everywhere.

ADVERTISEMENT
WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
CertifiedAudiologist ..

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

Like peas, but from different pods


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
; . r ,


It has always seemed to me
that children are like novels,
each with his own character-
istics and story.
Okey-dokey! Let's say you
have three children; one of


them is Paul. He is outgoing,
athletic, friendly, not very
interested in academics.
Then there is Dick, the
middle child. He's thin, asth-
matic, an introvert, likes to
read.
And then there is Mary,
who is argumentative, de-
structive, defies her parents
and teachers. She is inclined
to get into trouble both at
school and home. She runs
with crowds you do
not approve of. Perhaps this is
teenage rebellion and per-
haps she will change with
the right environment.
Who knows?
These kids have the same
parents, same neighborhood,


same school. Why are they
different?
I would argue they didn't
have the same environment.
The fact is that one child is
alone for a while; the second
child is the middle child and
neglected; and the third child
has two older siblings, which
makes each situation differ-
ent.
And does life in any family
stay the same?We all knowwe
treat a third child differently.
After the first two, you don't
worry.
But wait a minute. I am not
a psychologist; these are
things I know nothing about.
But, of course, as some of you
readers know, I do have


opinions.
So, I asked my friend Dr.
Robert Friar, Ferris State
University, for his observa-
tions, and I quote: "Genetics
and environment are the pri-
mary factors determining a
child's intelligence and be-
haviors. Genetics 'hard wires'
the brain before birth and the
environment in which a child
is raised will alter and add to
this 'hard-wiring' after the
child is born.-
The major environmental
influence on the child is what
the child observes in adults-
mostly parents and other care
givers.
"What the child sees adults
do will become part of the


child's social scripts. If the
adults are loving, caring and
kind, the child will tend to be
the same.
If the adults are ambitious,
industrious, clean, neat, orga-
nized and give, attention to
details, the child will tend to
be the same. If the adults are
the reverse of this, the child
will, once again, tend to be
like its role models.
"If the adults argue, yell,
fight and display violent
behaviors, the child will tend
to- argue, yell, fight and be
violent. This why it is so
essential that parents and
other adults provide a loving,
caring, congenial, positive
and productive environment


for children.
It is often said that a child
will be more like his/her same
gender parent than anyone
else. There is strong evidence
to support this."
So, now do we know why
children from one family are
different? I dunno!
Thanks, Bob, for explain-
ing some of these mysteries
- but they are still mysteries.

Virginia Deupree is 92,
and almost blind. She is a
graduate of Indiana Univer-
sity, noted for its School of
Journalism. Virginia was a
city editor and a columnist
for many years, and now
resides in Venice.

Provincial promotes phantasmagorical package


PHOTOS COURTESY OF HAUNTED HISTORYTOURS
One never knows whom or what one might discover in a cemetery, especially during the witch-
ing season. Are these ghosts or costumed Halloween revelers?


This photo was used on.the cover of "Journey Into Darkness," 'written by Kalila Katherina Smith.
The book contains the latest. rksarchrom -the Haunted-History investigative team about the -
spirits of New Orleans. "


A group listens to a Haunted History guide on a recent tour of one of New Orleans'famed
above-ground cemeteries. The large crypts often hold several deceased members of the same


Sidney Smith is the owner of Haunted History Tours in New Orleans.


STAFF REPORT


New Orleans, the Crescent
City, is said to be one of the
most haunted cities in the
United States.
With its vibrant history
shaped by disparate cultures,
New Orleans has witnessed
wars, disease, fires and hurri-
canes. To honor that past, the
historic Hotel Provincial, a pro-
ducer of paranormal passing,
will offer venturesome visitors
the opportunity to embark
upon a three-day, two-night
ApparitionalAdventure.
To get into the spirit,
supernatural sleuths can
choose to stay in one of Hotel
Provincial's spectral suites,
occupied by the Provincial's
own poltergeists who have


been residents since the
building was a military hqspi-
tal in 1722. If accommoda-
tions with otherworldly
apparitions are too daring,
participants can choose any
of Hotel Provincial's other 115
antique-accented rooms or
suites.
The first evening of the
Apparitional Adventure will
submerge spectral seekers
into the dark and mysterious
world of the undead on the
French Quarter Haunted
History Ghosts & Legends
Tour, a spine-tingling night-
time journey into the city's
eerie haunted past (and pre-
sent!). Upon retiring to their
rooms, nighttime reading will
await Apparitional Adven-
turists in the form of The


Haunted History of New
Orleans: Ghosts and Vamp-
ires, Journey into Darkness,
written by expert Kalila
Katherina Smith.
After a bewitching brunch
at charming boite, Cafe
Beignet, guests will embark
upon a Cemetery History
Tour, taking participants
within the walls of the oldest
and most interesting burial
ground St. Louis Cemetery
#1 including the tomb of
Voodoo Queen Marie Leveau.
The graveyard, opened in
1789 as the cities main burial
ground, was referred to by
early travelers as a "City of the
Dead" because the density of
the above-ground tombs
reminded them of the urban
landscape just outside the


family.
gates.
For the second evening,
Apparitional Adventure afi-
cionados will have a choice
between the New Orleans
Voodoo Tour, delving into the
devilish details of voodoo cul-
ture or the Vampire Tour,
allowing guests to enter the dark
and mysterious world of the
undead and visit sights and
locations associated with these
creatures of the night, including
a visit to a tavern reputed to be
frequented byvampiresw
Hotel Provincial's three-day,
two-night Apparitional Ad-
venture is available through
Nov. 20 at $659 per couple,
based on double occupancy
and features: Two nights in lux-
ury accommodations, daily
brunch at Cafe Beignet, haunt-
ed history tour, book men-
tioned above, cemetery tour,
choice of voodoo or vampire
tour and complimentary park-
ing.
Owned and operated by the
Dupepe family since 1961,
Hotel Provincial combines the


grace and charm of old world
elegance with the modem con-
veniences of today and is locat-
ed in the heart of the French
Quarter just blocks from
Bourbon Street For more infor-
mation about this or other

Let me be the first to say I
love Halloween. The smell of
the air is so crisp and clean, I
love to take it all in. The colors
are delightful, and pumpkins
are what make it all worth
while. On top of that, I con-
done any holiday where it is
socially acceptable for you to
dress up foolishly and walk
around your neighborhood
demanding free food. And, if
you don't get what you ask for,

going to be for Halloween?


a kid, I kind of lacked the
imagination I have now, but I
was still someone iconic. I
think I have the record for
most consecutive years dress-
ing up like Princess Leia for
Halloween.
Now I always try to pick
something clever. One year, I
was Lucy from Peanuts.
Another, I was Ophelia from
"Hamlet," but after she died,
of course. I had to search out-
side for twigs and brambles
for a-couple hours. I've been a
mummy, with real bandages.
I hhve been Death.
Another year, I was Velma
from Scooby Doo. I actually
'bear a striking resemblence
to the cartoon character,
especially since I have the
exact model of her glasses
and wore my hair exactly the
same for three years.
But, despite all my efforts
at making my own costumes,
I have never been identifiable
to anyone on any Halloween.
Every year, it breaks my heart
to have given a lot of thought
to my costume, and people
ask me all day long,


"Who are you supposed to
be, again?"
When I dressed as Velma,
people thought I hadn't
dressed up at all.
This year, I decided to go
more mainstream and get a
store-bought costume. As I
gazed at the costumes at
LTM, I noticed a recurring
theme: the shorter the skirt,
the better. I saw Disney char-
acters that were not so G-
rated. Judy Jetson looked like
a trollop. Then I saw all the
characters from "The Wizard
of Oz." But these were not the
characters I remember.
Dorothy, Glinda, the
Scarecrow, the Tin Man and
even the Cowardly Lion had
skirts that just hit the hip. I
didn't know the Cowardly
Lion wore a skirt.
As I perused further, I even
noticed that all the costumes
were prefixed with "Sexy."
Sexy Dorothy. Sexy Tin Man.
Sexy Cowardly Lion. If I
remember the movie correct-
ly, the Cowardly Lion was

Spooky books that will send

shivers down your spine


BYTERRI SCHLICHENMEYER
THE BOOKWORM .

The weather is cooler. The
nights are much, much
longer. The trees are naked
and when the wind howls
through the branches just so,
it can send a chill right down
your spine.
Hm. Must be time for
Halloween, and these books
will also send shivers down
your backbone.
When the doorbell rings at
your house Tuesday niglht, the
tall guy in the fur costume
might not be an extraordinar-
ily large kid. It could be
Bigfoot. In the new book
"Sasquatch: Legend Meets
Science" by Jeff Meldrum
(Forge, $27.95), you'll read
about the Big Guy, where he's
been seen, who's snapped
pictures of him, and whether
or not he really exists.
And if he rings your door-
bell on Halloween night, it's
advisable to be generous.
Everywhere you go, there are
ghosts. Comforting thought,
no? In the new book
"Haunted Lives" by Jeff
Belanger (New Page Books,
$14.99), you'll read a series of
interviews with everyday
people who've seen spirits in
unusual places. And if that
doesn't scare you enough,
"Ghosts of the World" by
Susan Smitten (Lone Pine,
$11.95) will take you on a ter-
rifying trip around the world
with spectres and spirits and
things that go bump in the
castle.
If you've got e-mail, you've
probably seen pictures of pets
in costume; there are several


forwards going around. Some
pets love Halloween. Others
just like to bark at the door.
If the late Max or the long-
gone Samantha loved Oct. 31,
you might just get a visit this
week from a doppelganger
dog or a frightening feline. In
the book "Pet Ghosts" by
Joshua P. Warren (New Page
Books, $14.99), you'll read
about visitations from
beyond the creepy kennel. -
So, OK. You scoff at
Halloween. Ghosts don't exist,
you say. Bigfoot is a guy in a
hairy suit, the Loch Ness
Monster is a log, and a were-
wolf is a very talented
German Shepherd. There is
no such thing as a banshee or
.a haunting and only wimps
get scared. Why not get into
the spirit of things anyhow
with a book about real dead
people? In "Postmortem: How
Medical Examiners Explain
Suspicious Deaths" by Stefan
Timmermans (University of
Chicago Press, $30.00), you'll
read some things that will
make even the most hard-
ened skeptic shiver on a dark
and stormy night.
After the trick-or-treaters
are gone this Halloween, turn
off the lights, grab one or all of
these books and try to ignore
the scratching on the window.
It's only one of the naked trees
and the howling of the wind.
Or is it?
Happy Halloween!
'The Bookworm is Terri
Schlichenmeyer She has been
reading since she was 3 years
old and never goes anywhere
without a book. She lives in

is a will or not.
How long does it take for a
will to be filed after a spouse
has passed on? And how can
we find out without talking to
his second wife? CURIOUS
IN CINCINNATI
DEAR CURIOUS: Contact
your father's attorney. If your
youngest sister was "sup-
posed to be in charge of that,"
she might already know who
that person is. That way you
won't have to talk to your
father's second wife, and your
questions will be answered by
a legal expert.
DEAR ABBY: Two of my
friends are being married a
'distance away and are having
their wedding reception here
in Washington, D.C. I received
an invitation a few days ago to
attend the reception. I like
both of them very much.
They are upstanding, dedicat-
ed, outstanding individuals.
They are also both guys.
I am torn. I believe that
marriage "is between one man
and one woman. Part of me


LINN from page9B


wants to attend because I am
friends with them, and if I
went I would be polite,
charming and come bearing
a gift. However, another part
of me does not want to attend
because I don't believe in
what they are doing. What
should I do? If I don't attend,
am I still responsible for a gift?
- CONFUSED ABOUT ETI-
QUETTE
DEAR CONFUSED: I am
sure that if your friends knew
that you disapprove of their
marriage, they would find
your presence at their recep-
tion an act of hypocrisy. So
send your regrets for being
unable to attend. And
because you will not be a part
of the festivities, you are
under no obligation to send a
gift.

anything but.
Halloween is in the fall,
and sometimes, it can get a
bit chilly. Until Halloween
moves to a summer month, I
want a costume with thermal
underwear, not a skirt a
cheerleader would scoff at.
I left LTM feeling defeated.
I didn't want to dress up in a
short skirt. I wonder if there
are any other women out
there that feel the same. I just
want a cool, identifiable cos-
tume that everyone enjoys.
But, I don't want to look like
I'm trying to get a date..
Besides, I thought it was all
about the candy. I decided to
make my own costume again
this year.
Later, I woe-ed to myself
that once again no one would
know who I was for
Halloween. My boyfriend


overheard me, and casually
walked by, saying,
"No one knows ever knows
who you are."

down a tow truck. The driver
removed the stump, and a
new tree was planted in its
place.
Everyone took turns cook-
ing shrimp from the docks,
red beans and rice, ribs from
the family cooking them next
door. Sometimes the teens
bake cookies in the church
kitchen. They would then
package them with a message
- "taste and see that the Lord
is good" and pass them out
with bottles of water to neigh-
bors and workers.
Symbols of hope
"We looked for signs of
hope everywhere," Carfield
said.
They met a woman whose
mother had died and left a
hope chest. It had arrived
from her brother's house in
Texas just a week before the
hurricane. It was ruined. "The
kids dragged it from the road,
went through it and found an
old family recipe," she said.
"They brought it back to
Venice, dried it out, matted
and framed it and sent it back
with the next group the fol-
lowing week.",
"Wherever we went,
whether it was a gas station,
store or just walking around
town, we became a symbol of
hope for the community,"
Ginny Derrough said.

recipe.

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

CD-BIA UPDATE:

Builders,

Realtors

Jazz Up

Sales!


With a Mardi Gras
theme and a focus
on forging new
relationships, builders and
Realtors will get together Nov.
16 for an a 2006 Expo.
The sales and marketing
council of the Charlotte-
DeSoto Building Industry
Association will get builders
and real estate agents
together to learn more about
how they can build upon
each other's success.


The Expo will be held from
9 a.m. to noon, Nov. 16, in the
Cultural Center of Charlotte
County.
"Jazz Up Your Sales" Expo
gives builders a chance to
promote new communities,
show new floor plans and
discuss incentive programs
and co-broke information
with Charlotte, Lee, Sarasota
and DeSoto county Realtors.
Realtors will be treated to
free attendance, as well as a


complimentary gourmet
breakfast buffet and libations.
Prizes will be given away all
during the event as every
exhibitor will provide a
valuable door prize, includ-
ing a $1,000 drawing for one
Realtor who has registered at
every booth.
"This event will be a
powerful networking oppor-
tunity for both builders and
real estate agents, and will
help them discover how they


can join forces for mutual
success in today's challenging
market." said Joe Cataldo,
loan officer
at Englewood Bank and
chairperson of the Builder-
Realtor Expo event.
"The event is a one-of-a-
kind day for both builders
and real estate agents. No
other area event brings this
number of builders and
agents together in one place
at one time.


Last year we had 20
building companies exhibit-
ing and more than 350 agents
attended. Those numbers
could easily double for this
year's Expo," Cataldo said.
The "Jazz Up Your Sales"
Expo will feature jazz enter-
tainment, lots of colorful
beads and valuable prizes, a
special "celebrity guest host"

Lennar Homes Offers Holiday S


The holidays are com-
ing early to Lennar Homes
communities.
Lennar, the areas
leading builder, is of-
fering homebuyers a
$5,000 shopping spree
with the purchase of
a selected new home.
During this promotion,
buyers of specially select-
ed homes will receive a
$5,000 day of shopping at
the store of their choice.
Whether it be Toy-R-Us
or Saks Fifth Avenue, the
horrrebuyer will "shop till
they drop" to make this
the most amazing holiday
season of their life.


better way to
the holidays
a new home


and $5,000 to spend
on anything you want,"
asked Lennar Division
President Rob Allegra.

The offer applies to
Lenrear's move-in ready
homes in Sarasota and
Manatee counties. Ac-
cording to Allegra, Lern-
nar has homes for ev-
ery lifestyle: from active
adults and golfers to
families of every size.


The Regions Best
Prices for Quality
New Homes
In spite of all the clat-
ter about the real estate
slowdown, Lennar re-
cently announced re-
cord-breaking sales of
new homes.
The company's suc-
cess during a "down
market" is easily ex-


plained. "Lennar is a
value builder and, re-
gardless of what the
market is doing, con-
sumers recognize the
value they receive with
a Lennar home," said
Allegra.
"Very simply, Lennar
is already offering some
of the lowest prices
anywhere in this mar-
ket and for the very best
communities. When you
add in a dream shop-
ping spree, there really
never has been a bet-
ter time to buy a new
home," said Allegra.
Not only are Lennar
homes priced right, but
the company's "Every-
thing's Included" pro-,


hopping

gram offers a remark-
able value. Where other
builders add on extra
charges for upgraded
features, Lennar in-
cludes these premium
features as standard,
without any additional
charges.
"People are surprised
when they tour one of
our models and realize
that everything they see
is included," said Alleg-
ra.
Lennar has been
building homes in the
Sarasota and Manatee
area for more than 40
years. A public com-
pany, Lennar's financial
statements are among
the strongest of the
large, national builders.

Sprees

As evidenced by the
success of new master-
planned communities
including River Strand
in Heritage Harbour and
Stoneybrook at Venice,
Lennar continues to build
on its status as the regions
largest homebuilder.
"With our special fi-
nancing programs, low
prices and special in-
centive like the holiday
season shopping spree,
you'll be surprised at how
much home you can buy
with Lennar and just how
much fun buying a -new
home can be. Come out
this weekend and see for
yourself, we know you'll
be glad that you did," said
Allegra.

arnazing features are expensive upgrades:
Rest assured with Lennor, 'he price you see is the
price you pay. You know exactly i hat the price
is because Everything's Included. Thousands of E.,,ryhi Inc lu-,u-Hoy,..
dollars in premium features for not a penny more.
