Police hoping for



leads in woman's death


BYTOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Investigators are waiting
for autopsy results before
making a positive identifica-
tion of a missing woman
whose body was found
buried in a backyard in
Osprey Thursday.
"We are hoping to have
something by Monday,"
Sarasota County Sheriff's Lt.
Chuck Lesaltato said. "Our
guys are working on it, and
from what we've been able to
learn so far by talking to
neighbors, we think it's her."
Lesaltato could not elabo-
rate further.
The missing woman is
Lauri Beth Moore, 48, of 153
Pennsylvania Ave., Osprey.
Moore was reported missing
by her sister, Candice Rule,
Oct. 25.
The body was found
buried in the backyard at the


Pennsylvania address about 2
p.m., Thursday.
Lesaltato could not say
who discovered the body.
Things not always what
they seem
While it may seemobvious
that foul play is involved
because someone buried the
body, such is not always the
case.
Lesaltato said the woman
could have died of natural
causes, an overdose because
she had a drug history, or
somebody could have killed
her.
"We just won't know until
we get the ME's (medical
examiner) report," Lesaltato
said.
Lesaltato also said if some-
one discovered the already
deceased woman and then
buried her, they could be
guilty of a crime (failing to tell
authorities about a dead per-


son, illegally burying a body)
but not necessarily homicide.
Moore's criminal history
Rude told authorities she
last spoke to her sister May
11,2006.
Rude hung up when a
Venice Gondolier Sun
reporter called her at home in
Davison, Michigan and iden-
tified himself.
Moore is no stranger to
police. Since 1995, she has
had nine contacts with the
law, according to court
records. Several of them were
drug-related.
The cases are all closed,
and not all resulted in convic-
tions. In one example, the
state elected not to prosecute
after Moore was arrested for
selling and manufacturing
controlled substances.

These two messages heated up the Muslim Community. The local pastor who put them up said
he did not mean to start a controversy.



Local preacher draws Muslim fire

George Raymond of VFW Post 8118 in Venice, played Taps at the end of the Veteran's Day
program, at Memorial Park. See Veteran's Day photos on page 15.


A local preacher said he
unwittingly caused a fire-
storm in the Muslim com-
munity by exercising his
First Amendment Rights.
Pastor K.C. McCay, of the
Congregational Church of
Laurel North America, 730
E. Laurel Road, put mes-
sages on his outdoor
church marquee that stat-
ed: "God and Allah Are Not
the Same! God (Christ) is
Love," and "Muslims Can
Convert 'to Christianity
Here!"
Different messages ap-
pear every week.
"I didn't know it would
cause a controversy," Mc-
Cay said. "I had nothing but
support from the congrega-
tion. The controversy came
from the Muslim communi-
ty."
McCay said he did not
get any takers to convert.
"I got the idea from that


American who converted to
Islam and invited other
American's ,.to. ,.convert,"
NMcCay said. ..,
No hocus pocus
McCay said he does not
have a problem with the
Muslim people, but he
believes their religion is
wrong. ,
McCay said there are sev-
eral fundamental differ-
ences between their reli-
gion and Christianity. One
involves being born again.,
"Born again is not hocus
pocus, millions have had
the experience," he said.
"There is no promise like
that in their religion."
Chewing gum
McCay believes people
should be free to choose how
and who they worship. He
said that doesn't mean he
won't speak out when he
thinks they are wrong.
"Look," he said. "I don't
even have a problem with


people who believe that
chewing Wrigley Spearmint
Gum will get them to heav-
enZ.:.
But he does have a prob-
lem with the Koran, the
sacred writings of Islam
revealed by God to the
prophet Muhammad the
holy book of Islam.
McKay said it states that
Infidels, or non-believers, can
be dealt with in only three
ways: enslave them, convert
them or kill them.
"They are the intolerant
ones," McCay said. "They're
wrong."
EDITOR'S NOTE: The Islamic
Society of Sarasota and Bradenton
did not respond in time for this
story. However, they were wel-
comed and encouraged by voice
mail from a Venice Gondolier Sun
reporter to respond at their earli-
est convenience so the paper can
publish their side of the story.

Alicia Vis is blind. Yet, she
has been amazing people all
of her life with her acute sens-

Sarasota County School Board
and Sarasota Classified/Teachers
Association have reached a tenta-
tive agreement
Representatives for both par-
ties were still working out final
details late Friday aftemoon.
"The parties will announce
details on Monday," said Sheila
Weiss, communications and
community relations supervi-
sor for the school board.
Both parties were entering
the final push in salary and ben-
efits negotiations when the
board met on Wednesday in
executive session. Friday's
announcement indicates the
board likely tentatively signed
off on the agreement
The association will next take
the tentative agreement before

school board for final approval.
Both sides were very close to
reaching agreement two weeks
ago, with the district offering
teachers an 8 percent package,
and SC/TA countering with an
8.5 percent package.
The district's last offer was a
5.25 percent across the board
increase for both teachers and
classified employees. It also
agreed to a 1.5 percent step in-
crease on the salary schedule for
both groups.
Teachers who take an addi-
tional 30 hours of training or
collaborative planning are eligi-
ble for another 3.25 percent.
Together, the three provisions
total a potential 8 percent in-
crease in pay.
SC/TAs last offer was an 8.5
percent package, including a 7
percent across the board raise
for both teachers and classified
employees, and the 1.5 percent
step increase.

JACK CARTLIDGE was a longtime sculptor and New
College professor in Sarasota. During his life, he ham-
mered pieces of copper art that can be seen in prominent
places throughout the city. His most famous sculpture,
"Nobody's Listening," is sited in front of City Hall. The
work displays a solitary figure standing apart from a
group, intended to remind us that government leaders
sometimes do not listen to citizen's views. Another of his
creative works is called "Pioneer Family Hears a Sound; is
it Bears or Billy Bowlegs?"

Design change meeting for the bypass


The Florida Department of
ltansportation has scheduled
a public hearing regarding the
design change re-evaluation of
the Project Development and
Environment Study completed
in 1994 for U.S. 41 Bypass in
Venice, from Center Road to
south of U.S. 41 Business.
The hearing will be at the
Venice Community Center, 326
S. Nokomis A\'e., Thursday Dec.
7.
The public hearing will begin
as an open house from 6 to 7
p.m. with the formal hearing
commencing at 7 p.m.


The hearing is being held to
allow persons an opportunity to
express their views concerning
the location, conceptual design,
and social, economic and envi-
ronmental effects of the pro-
posed design change.
The proposed improve-
ments to U.S. 41 Bypass consist
of upgrading the existing four-
lane roadway to a six-lane
divided urban roadway from
Center Road to Bird Bay Drive.
This project has two seg-
ments: segment one, from
Center Road to Hatchett Creek,
and segment Rvo, from Hatchett


Creek to Bird Bay Drive.
The proposed improve-
ments for segment one require
right-of-way acquisition, while
the proposed improvements
for segment two can be con-
structed within the existing
right of way. Right-of-way
acquisition will also be neces-
sary for the stormwater man-
agement facilities required to
treat runoff.
The environmental studies
of the corridor will help in iden-
tifying a strategy to eliminate or
lessen the environmental im-
Pacts of the build alternatives.


The ,hearing will be con-
ductedin accordance withTitle
;of the Civil RightsAct of 1964
and related statutes. Public
participation is solicited with-
out regard to race, color, reli-
gion, sex, age, national origin,
disability or familial .status.

commodations pursuant to
the Americans with Disabilities
Act of 1990 should call Chris

Members of the President's Own


Marine Band visits elementary school


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER


Annete Ballou, teacher at
Islandd Village Montessori
School' was thrilled when
members of The President's
Own United States Marine
Band took time from their
busy fall tour to perform at
the school. Ballou's niece,
Michelle Urzinacock, is a
member of the band.
The Marine Band consists
of 130 musicians, who are
enlisted personnel in the
United States Marine Corps.
Urzinacock brought with her
four musicians who put on
two special shows for stu-
dents.
"This is actually our day
off," said Urzinacock, "but we
wanted to do this outreach
concert for my aunt."
It was surprising how
interested the students were,
she said, especially since the
music selections were mostly
classical.
Musical performances
were in two parts -first were
selections by Marine band
members Anna Maria Mot-
tolo on piano and Eric Sabo
on base.
The student's favorite
piece was the "Peanuts theme
from Charlie Brown" with a
piano solo by Mottolo.
Leslye Barrett, Cindy Ru-
golo and Urzinacock played
the oboe, flute and clarinet.
Their selections were clas-
sical, but the students wanted
to know what kind of music
they listened to when they
were relaxing.-
"I actually like country
music," Urzinacock said.
After each musical piece,
students asked questions of
band members about their
instruments. Urzinacock
then explained the history of
the marine band.
Who they are
Founded in 1788 by an Act
of Congress, The President's
Own United States Marine
Band is America's oldest pro-
fessional musical, organiza-
tion, she said.
Urzinacock asked students
if they saw any of the presi-
dential inaugurations on TV
when the band was playing at
those events.
Musicians have to have
flexible schedules, she said
because they can call us at
any time for visiting digni-
taries, holiday events and
small parties at the White
House.
"We are not called to the
White House as often now to
play," Urzinacock said.
"When President Clinton was
in office, portions of the band
were always being asked to
perform for piano recitals and
receptions."

Auditions
Musicians are selected
based on performance ability.
Urzinacock said all of the
members have bachelor's
degrees, many with masters
and Ph.D.'s in music.
Once selected, each appli-
cant is formally interviewed
to ensure he or she meets the
physical and mental criteria
for enlistment in the United
States Marine Corps and is
able to obtain the required
top secret security clearance
for White House access.
However, band members do
not have to go through boot
camp, Urzinacock said.
When members of the
band are selected, they are
expert musicians recruited
from colleges. The only mili-
tary training required is to
familiarize members of offi-
cer ranks and White House
protocols.
Concerts
Students, were invited to
attend a free concert when
they visit Washington D.C.
and to look at marine
band.usmc.mil.com for
schedules.
"Do you play any rock


music?" asked a fifth-grade
student.
Urzinacock said students
would be surprised at the dif-
ferent types of music the full
band plays.
"We have music for every-
one to enjoy," she said.
"When we are traveling, all of
the concerts are sold out."


Eric Sabo, base player for the
President's Own United
States Marine band, shows
students William Fillyaw and
Sage Kuhr of Island Village
Montessori School how to
play the base.


There's no need to wait any
longer or drive any further -
for college classes. Since 2004,
the University of South Florida
Sarasota-Manatee has been
offering courses toward
bachelor's degrees in the south
Sarasota County area. We
serve the fast-growing cities ot
\'enice, North Port, Englewood
and the surrounding region.


Alex Morris and Kera Frost are treated to a concert by United States Marine band members
Leslye Barrett, Cindy Rugolo, and Michelle Urzinacock.

Dunn-Rankin recognized with award


The president of Sun
Coast Media Group
was honored by the
Rotary Club of Punta
Gorda Thursday.


BY NEIL HUGHES
STAFF WRITER

No, Derek Dunn-Rankin is
not dying.
But on Thursday night, his
wife, Betty Dunn-Rankin, jok-
ingly asked if he were. She
and dozens of prominent
locals were in attendance as
the Rotary Club of Punta
Gorda honored Derek for his
service to the community.
"He's received so many of
these awards lately," Betty
said. "Is there something his
doctor isn't telling us? Do you


think he's going to croak
soon?"
Quite to the contrary, the
room was full of life at the
Charlotte County Tenta-
torium for the 16th annual
"Service Above Self"
Testimonial Dinner, which
recognized the contributions
made by Derek, president of
Sun Coast Media Group, the
parent company of Sun
Newspapers.
Paul Versnik, president of
the Rotary Club of Punta
Gorda, said Derek exemplifies
the definition of putting ser-
vice to the community before
oneself.
"Through his newspapers,
he has supported all of the
area nonprofits by donating
space in his papers at no
charge," Versnik said.
For three months after
Hurricane Charley, Derek saw


to it that a daily newspaper
was delivered free of charge
to subscribers and non-sub-
scribers alike.
Dr. David Klein, who
received the award in 1998,
said the newspaper's positive
role in the community speaks
well of Derek.
Another former recipient,
Dr. Bob Andrews, seconded
Klein's praise. The Rotary
Club recognized him for his
service in 2001.
"He's a real community
person," Andrews said of
Derek. "He has the best inter-
est of our community at
heart, and he deserves it."
One person who wasn't so
sure he deserved it was this
year's recipient himself,
Derek. His son, David Dunn-
Rankin, said he and others
had to convince him to
accept it.


"It was nice that he agreed
this year to be honored," said
David, who is the publisher of
Sun Newspapers. "We had to
twist his arm."
Derek said his friends and
family didn't have to try too
hard to convince him, but
that he felt the award would
be better suited for someone
else.
"I think there are lots of
people who are more deserv-
ing," he said. "We're just doing
our job."
Recipients of the award are
not allowed to be a member
of the Rotary Club. However,
Derek'said he tries to run his
businesses with the Rotarian
philosophy, which says to be
truthful and fair, build good
will and friendships and for
something to be beneficial to
all concerned.
"It's a pretty good guideline

for people in business," Derek
said. "I think if you focus on
the people you're serving and
see how you can better serve


them, it turns out to be a good

Capt. Eddie calls it quits


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Capt. Eddie Toomer, a
commercial fisherman for
almost 30 years, is giving up.
He'll limit himself to taking
recreational fishermen out on
his charter boat from now on.
The 61-year-old Engle-
wood resident had just
installed two hew engines in
his boat, which would have
made it "one of the fastest in


the Gulf," he said. "But "the
new rules have effectively put
me out of the commercial
end of fishing."
Federal rules taking effect
Dec. 7 require that commer-
cial fishermen with permits to
operate in the Gulf of Mexico
must install satellite-based
monitoring systems that
allow authorities to know
their location. If such systems
are not installed by a specific
deadline, fishermen will be


fined.
The monitoring system, or
VMS, allows regulators and
law enforcement agencies to
know the location of fisher-
men to enforce rules for
closed areas, protect natural
habitats and manage com-
mercial fisheries. Required in.
other fisheries,' including
those off Hawaii and Alaska,
the system is similar to a
home burglar alarm.
Many area Gulf fishermen,


with smaller commercial
operations, don't like the sys-
tem because it is too expen-
sive, and violates their priva-
cy.. The Gulf Fishermen's
Association, which represents
1,070 operators from Florida
to Texas, is suing the National
Marine Fisheries Service over
the rule in a federal court in
Tampa.
A VMS unit costs $3,100 to
install. Added to that is the
monthly fee of $40 to $55 for a
signal carrier. The fisheries
service has set aside $4.5 mil-
lion to reimburse fishermen
for part of the cost, according


to Peter. Hood, a Fisheries
Service biologist.
"When you add the cost of
VMS to growing costs of fuel,
insurance, hurricanes and
fixed costs, you can under-
stand why more of us are get-
ting out of commercial fish-
ing," Toomer said. He started
his career fishing for sale to
wholesale seafood suppliers.
Then he opened a restau-
rant/fish market in Nokomis,,
and limited his catch to it. He
sold the restaurant 3 1/2 years
ago, and has fished commer-
cially and for charter since.
The VMS system was dis-


cussed as early as 1999 by the
Gulf of Mexico Fishery Man-
agement Council. Ten public
hearings. have been held
since, but they were sparsely
attended, according to Hood.
"You can understand why,"
said Toomer. "Many of us
thought the rule would not
apply to smaller commercial
fishing businesses, like those
around here. I don't think any
of us is against protective
marine laws. But we have
smaller boats than in other
parts of the country. The
expense has become too
great.

Gum removal companies



no longer scraping by


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Kids do it. Grownups do it.
Even esteemed seniors do it
... spit chewing gum out on
the sidewalk or parking lot of
almost every business in the
area just before entering the
building.
Most shopkeepers and
large grocery and department
stores try their best to stay on
top of cleaning up bubble
gum. But it's a losing proposi-
tion, and it comes at a price.
A survey of recent bids to
the Sarasota County School
District to pressure clean
roofs and other structures
showed professional cleaners
charge between $35 and $150
per hour for gum removal.
Awnclean Diversified
Services from Tampa won the
Sarasota County School
Board contract. They charge
$50 per hbur for gum
removal.
"Bubble gum is a hated
thing. It's the bane of all prop-
erty and facilities managers
because it's a nightmare to
remove," said Amy Diehl,
president of Awnclean.
You could say Diehl is
obsessed with gum removal.
She's spent the equivalent of a
small home on gum removal
research and development,
she said.
Then she came across a
secret weapon already being
tested in Chicago the
ThermaClean unit.
Awnclean invested $4,200
in a machine and was so
pleased with the results it
purchased a second. Awn-


clean now serves as a
ThermaClean representative
in Florida. Diehl is selling the
brand under the name
GumZap.
This unique, patented sys-
tem uses a combination of
steam heat and a special solu-
tion to remove both gum and
gum staining from any sur-
face in seconds, according to
Awnclean's Web site. It even
removes gum from painted
sidewalks without damaging
the paint.
"Our clients are bouncing
off the walls (elated)," Diehl
said.
Most cleaners first scrape
as much gum as possible off
the pavement, then attack it
with 150-degree hot water
from a 3,000 psi pressure
hose.
The secret to the GumnZap
machine is a combination of
300-degree heat and 1,200 psi
water pressure.
"It's much lower pressure
than normally used to
remove gum, but much high-
er heat without the steam,"
Diehl said.
Fueled by propane, the
machine can be mounted on
a small trailer or wheeled
around on a cart. It sends out
a concentrated jet of hot
water and detergent through
a fan tip only one and a half
inches wide.
A few passes over the gum,
even without scraping, and it
disintegrates, Diehl said.
"One of the wonderful
things is it doesn't leave a ring.
"Sometimes petrified gum
that has blackened will still
leave a slight sugar stain or

WORKER from pagelA
unpaid, part-time "volun-
teer" being trained and evalu-
ated by the Florida Division of
Blind Services in order to
determine her potential for
placement in any clerical
position available in the
Venice area.
Although she had held a
similar job before at Manatee
Community College, the ex-
perience at city hall enabled
her to get the "stamp of
approval" of the DBS. This
allows any prospective em-
ployer to receive state-funded
assistance with certain equip-
ment and facility modifica-
tions that might be necessary
to adapt a work center to the
needs of a visually impaired
employee.
"I wanted to find some-
thing that would give me an
opportunity to help people in
some way," Vis said. "I wanted
to make a contribution back
to the world and to the com-
munity that has been so good
to me over the years."
Vis said people often can't
imagine how much a blind
person can do if given train-
ing and a chance.
That was certainly true at
city hall. The people who
worked with Vis that first time
hesitated initially to allow her
to navigate the halls or sit at
the reception desk alone. But
she quickly memorized not
only everyone's name and
telephone extension, but also
how many steps and turns it
took to get anywhere in the
two-story building.
"She could give clearer
directions to visiting stran-
gers than most of the sighted
employees," said the former
director of personnel, who
was one of her supervisors at
the time. "In avery short time,
she was able to run the copy
and fax machines and even
did some microfilming for the
records office.
"She enjoyed surprising us
nearly every day with some-
thing new she had learned or
done that no one expected. It
was always fun to see the


expression on people's faces
when she called them by
name as they walked by her
desk area she knew just
about everyone by the sound
of their footsteps."
Feeling at home
Since that time, Vis worked
as a receptionist at Engle-
wood Disposal for nine years
and as a dietary aide at Bon
Secours Venice Hospital for
about a year.
"I know everyone must
have thought he was crazy,"
said Vis, "but Sam Hague,
who was director of the
dietary department at the
hospital, was willing to give
me a chance. The kitchen
staff, however, was very cau-
tious in my training. They
were uneasy with me and my
white cane .as I walked
around learning where every-
thing was, and they wouldn't
let me touch a knife for two
weeks. After they saw I could
do things without hurting
myself or anyone else, they
finally decided I was OK to
have around."
In 2005, she was hired
again by the city of Venice to
run its switchboard and
reception desk.
Vis was born in Caracas,
Venezuela, nearly 52 years
ago. At first her vision prob-
lem was just serious glauco-
ma which required periodic
surgery to relieve the optic
pressure. But none of the
surgeries corrected her vis-
ion, which worsened gradual-'
ly until she became totally
blind at age 16.

the lasers and other tech-
niques they're using today
which might have cured my
vision," Vis said. "And there
were no schools for the blind
in Caracas like there are here
in the States, so I just went to
regular public schools it was
very hard."
Her father, who is now
retired, was administrator for
a hardware supply store for
many years, then later
became a bank administrator
in a savings and loan. Her
mother was a homemaker,
devoting her time to raising
Alicia and her older brother.
"Unfortunately, my moth-
er was very protective," Vis
said. "She wouldn't let me
learn to cook or do anything.
around the house because
she was afraid I would hurt
myself or break something.
I've had to learn to do every-
thing on my own since I left
home, but that has made me
very independent."
After completing high
school in Caracas in the late
1970s, Vis received a scholar-
ship to attend the Daytona
Beach School for the Blind.
Her first goal was to learn
English as a second language,
thinking that skill would open
doors for her when she
returned to Venezuela.
"Mutt and Jeff"
Her plans changed, how-
ever, when she met Ken Vis,
who was a fellow student at
the Daytona Beach school.
Ken a native of New Jersey,
also had vision problems
from birth and has been
"legally blind" most of his life.

They met at a school
dance. Ken stands 6 foot 4
inches" tall, and Alicia is a
petite 5 foot 1 inch tall" Each
displayed an easy going sense
of humor about their respec-
tive differences and similari-
ties. It became immediately
evident they were made for
each other. Their friends
began referring to them as
"Mutt and Jeff" after the tall
and short cartoon characters
who were popular then.
"In this case, love truly was
blind, because neither of us
could see the other," Vis said,
smiling. "As we began to get
more serious in our relation-
ship, many people were skep-
tical of our chances of making
a marriage work given our
physical limitations. But we
just took that as another chal-
lenge which could be over-
come.
They have been happily
married for more than 27
years, proving the skeptics
wrong.
Mind over matters
For several years, Vis has
had the benefit of a comput-
erized machine called a
"Braille and Speak" which she
uses to take notes when she's
learning something.
"It works like a laptop
computer or a Blackberry by
letting me set up files of infor-
mation that I can then find
and access quickly," she said.
"I type information in using
basic Braille, and the mac-
hine is able to translate that
into spoken words that I can
play back later."
Apart from the advantages

offered by such technological
advancements, however, Vis
has always considered her
memory to be her greatest
gift.
"God gave me this ability,"
she said. 'As is true with all
' skills, exercising it makes it
stronger, so I've learned to
use it to my advantage. In the
same way, my other senses
like hearing and touch have
also become stronger be-
cause I've hadto compensate
for lack of sight.
"But everyone has the
same capability to strengthen
their gifts," Vis added, "if they
would just apply themselves
in those areas and not take
them for granted. Unfor-
tunately, people who can see
usually don't pay as much
attention to the sounds,
smells and textures around
them, so they miss a lot.
'Faith and friends
Alicia and Ken moved to
the Venice area in the early
1980s, shortly after finishing
their schooling in Daytona
Beach. Ken's father, a retired
tool and dye maker from New
Jersey, and his mother were
already residents of Engle-
wood.
They made many friends
quickly. Vis tutored people in
Spanish and joined the
Hispanic-American Alliance
to help Latinos get estab-
lished in the area. They also
began attending / Christ
United Methodist Church.
"I became a believer when
I was 29 and got a whole new
perspective on life-an
understanding of my purpose


in life, and a greater motiva-
tion to serve others," Vis said.
"My faith tells me anything is
possible with God's help.
Otherwise I would never have
gotten this far."
"Through the church, we
immediately found a connec-
. tion to new friends who were
willing to reach out to us with
any help we needed," she
said.
One example is the church
choir. Although Alicia had
never sung in a choir before,
when she heard them re-
hearsing one night, she
decided she had to join.
"They were having too
much fun," Vis said. "I wanted
to be apart of it, even if they
wouldn't let me sing.
Fortunately it turned out I
was able to sing alto and
could learn the part from lis-
tening to the person next to
me. I am also able to use my
Braille and Speak to help
memorize the words.
"Getting to and from the
choir loft is a challenge, but
with the help of my white
cane and good friends in the
alto section, we always make
it, and have fun doing it.
"Growing up," Vis conclud-
ed, "I never thought I could
survive by myself. When I
found out I could, it was a
great revelation and a huge
step in my quest for indepen-
dence. But I also came to
appreciate more those who
offer their help, so I try to do
the same for others."

Fire department sponsors coloring contest


The contest was open to
six Venice area elementary
and preschools.
A winner in grades pre-Kto
third will be chosen.
Tours
In his new position, Silva
invites schools to tour the fire
station.
"We have a program that
gives students not only a tour
but teaches them fire safety in
all areas of the home, includ-
ing the kitchen," he said.
Students are able to tour
the living quarters and learn
how to stop, drop and roll in
case their clothes are on fire
- the ABC's of fire safety.
"We also show the stu-
dents a firefighter in uni-
form," Silva said.
The purpose of this is so
that children would not be
intimidated or afraid in case
of an emergency.
"A young child might hide


in an emergency, if he was
afraid of the man in uniform,"
Silva said.
Student visitors are given a
gift bag that includes a color-
ing book, helmet and stickers
- fire safety reminders of
their visit.
If any school or group
would like a tour of the fire
station, they can call 480-
3030 and schedule an
appointment.
Holiday tips
Keeping your home safe
from fires during the holidays
is an important issue.
The following tips are rec-
ommended by the city.
Thanksgiving
Start holiday cooking with
a clean stove and oven.
Keep kitchen clutter and
loose clothing away from the
stove's heat.
Turn pot handles in, away


from a child's reach.
Use pot holders to prevent
burns.
Never throw water on a
grease fire, instead cover the
burning pan with a lid.
Keep all appliances in
good working order.
Never overload electrical
outlets. Unplug appliance
when not in use.
Never leave cooking food
unattended.
Keep Thanksgiving deco-
rations away from sources of
heat.
Christmas
Make sure your Christmas
tree is fresh. Shedding nee-
dles is a sign of a dry tree.
Keep your tree fresh by
placing it in a stand that holds
water.
Make sure artificial trees
are flame retardant.
Never smoke around the
tree or flammable decora-


tions.
Place trees away from
direct sources of heat.
Never place a tree so that it
blocks an exit.
Only buy electric lights
that are approved by a
national testing lab.
Never decorate metal trees
with electric lights.
Always unplug lights
before going to bed.
Never run electrical cords
through doorways or under
rugs.
Keep candles in sturdy
holders and never place them
near combustibles, such as
curtains.
Avoid hanging stockings
near an open flame.
Never bum paperin a fire-
place. This is a major cause of
chimney fires.

City of Venice Fire Department, looks over student entries for
the coloring contest the city held that brought fire safety
awareness to students.


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

A ride on a fire truck to
school serves as a great incen-
tive for a student to become
more aware of fire safety.
That's what the City of Venice
plans to give the winner in the
coloring contest they spon-
sored.
The original art work that
students duplicated was cre-
ated by Lt. Tony Fitzgerald of
the Venice Fire Department.
It shows a fireman and chil-
dren in a home with a smoke
detector.
"We really wanted the stu-


dents to study the picture and
become aware about fire
safety in the home," said
Capt. Joe Silva of the Venice
Fire Department. "We wanted
to make the kids know how
,important it is to change the
batteries in their smoke
detectors."
Silva was recently appoint-
ed the fire training and public
education director for the
City of Venice Fire Dep-
artment. His job is to make
the public aware of fire safety
in the home and remind the
public about things like
replacing batteries ,in their
smoke detectors.

New law allows phone companies to ask for rate hike


A state law that went into effect this sum-
mer appears on the surface at least to
be just another example of Florida lawmak-
ers caving in to special interests at the tax-'
payers' expense.
The Public Service Commission will
open a preliminary hearing on Nov. 20 to
decide if BellSouth should be allowed to
charge customers an extra 50 cents per line
per month to recoup damages from 2005
hurricanes. BellSouth is allowed to ask for
that money because of a law that says any
telecommunications company can apply
for rate increases to help pay for storm-
related expenses.
The real rub, however, is that the law was
written to cover costs above and beyond
what is covered by insurance or a hurricane
reserve fund. But, it does not require the


telecommunications company to insure
itself or save for a rainy day.
In BellSouth's case, the company did not
bother to buy hurricane insurance or fund
any hurricane emergency reserve, according
to Jason Oxman, an attorney representing
BellSouth wholesale customers who will feel
the pinch if the PSC approves the rate hike.
What the Legislature has done if the rates
are approved is reward BellSouth for not
carrying insurance or a reserve fund -
something most utilities take for granted.
If the PSC approves BellSouth's request, it
will cost its Florida customers about $34 mil-
lion over the next year. And, while BellSouth
does not serve Southwest Florida, the lust for
higher rates seems to be infectious.
Embarq filed a similar request in
September asking its customers to pony up


more than $10 million in rate increases to
offset storm damage claiming it has no
insurance, and that it has no storm reserve
fund. Embarq wants the maximum rate hike
allowed by Florida law. The Florida PSC will
hold a hearing on Embarq's request on Jan. 4.
There is no word yet on whether Verizon, our
other local carrier, might seek a rate hike.
If this news wasn't bleak enough, the law
allows telecommunications companies to
request the higher rates again next year for
any 2006 storm damage. There is n6 limit to
how many years in a row a utility can request
a rate hike.
Finally, any rate increase by telephone
companies to recoup storm damages comes
on top of a $300 million hike in phone bills
approved by the PSC in 2005.
We find it disturbing that the Legislature


would pass a bill that opens the door so eas-
ily for rate increases. Even though the PSC is
scheduling public hearings on the rate
increase now, its record of standing up to
utilities who want to raise rates is disap-
pointing.
Oxman said some smaller wholesale com-
panies and private citizens may petition the
Legislature to overturn the law next year. But,
he said, going against telecommunications'
lobbyists and money is a daunting task to say
the least.
We sympathize with wholesalers and pri-
vate citizens who could see a rate hike -
even though 50 cents should not cause any-
one to have their phone disconnected. The
idea that a company, can be financially
rewarded for not carrying insurance or plan-
ning for a potential disaster is troubling.


What is on your list?


BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER'


Over the next month or
two, the county is seeking
input from citizens to find out
what they would want if we
voted to extend the' one cent
tax. This will be voted on next"
November. ,
As many of you knowwe've
had,this tax for a long time as
it has been approved twice
before. Why in the heck do we
need more money for things
than other counties do? Well,
the answer is we live in a
beautiful place and want a
better place now not later
when we won't be around to
enjoy it. We want libraries like
the new one on Fruitville or
the addition to Jacaranda
library. We want better and
wider, and more roads. We
want things like our old rail-
road station restored and we
want more sidewalks and
more neighborhood im-
provements. We even can get
bridges upgraded.
All in all there are a lot of
needs-many connected
with growth. The answer one
might suggest is to stop build-
ing or substantially curtail it. I
can tell you that is not the
answer. However, making
sure the growth matches the
infrastructure is important
and what we hope the county
and cioes will be addressing.
If we continue the tax, what
improvements would you like
to see? Would you like Jac-
aranda Road extended to Laurel
Road? Would you want Venice
Avenue widened from Jac-
aranda to River Road or maybe
make River Road four lanes?
Since it is for 10 years, we likely
would wantPinebrookwidened
to four lanes.
Maybe we would widen
Laurel Road or at least the inter-
section at Laurel and Knights
Trail. Maybe we'd put all the
money into widening the
Bypass where it is said there is
no money-at least until the
Republicans win back congress.
Likely there will be a need
for emergency services in the
county with all the develop-
ment going in south county.
Some people would like the
money to help reduce the
cost of water distribution or
to hasten the expansion of it.
Some people might want a


new library to serve North
Venice or maybe money to
finish the waterway trail. I
would guess there are some
key areas that need sidewalks,
and the only way the county
is going to know is if you ask.
It is certain in the time of this
tax we will need an expanded
judicial center in the south. We
need to be able to handle felony
cases as well as the expanded
civil cases. North Port certainly
has caused a big piece of that
That also may necessitate some
kind of holding facility or jail.
With Thomas Ranch growing to
20,000 people during this peri-
od, we might need to widen US
41 between Venice and North
Portwhichis the fastest growing
city in the state.
For a longtime there has
been a cry for a performance
center in south county and
this is the time to build it. I
know the symphony wants its
own home to be used with
others. It could be combined
with an upgrade at Venice
High like North Port did or
maybe something else like an
amphitheater which our
county and area could use.
I am sure you can fill in the
blank with the items you
think are critical. The key item
I want the Commissioners to
consider is putting money
aside for the unforeseen. The
last time around they allocat-
ed every single dollar to a pro-
ject, so if one came up during
the 10-year period that we
had not planned for, then it
could not be funded. So when
we came up with the need to
upgrade Venice Community
Center, funding was not set
aside. They moved $500,000
that was designated for an
amphitheater to the, project,
but it deserved a whole -lot
more. There should be a way
that every two years or so
there would be an allocation
of a percent of the total to new
projects. This might start at
year three or four since guess-
es would tend to be accurate
at the beginning.
Here is where the cham-
ber, and other community
groups need to jump in to
ensure we get our fair share.
Your best chance to ex-
press what you think most
important is Thursday night
at Jacaranda Library at 6 p.m.
You likely will see Sandra
Terry and Brian Meurs, two
representatives from our area,
on the oversight committee. I
hope to see you there. If not
let Shannon Staub know what
you would like to see.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



Character more important than wall


Editor:

We're going to build a 700-mile wall. We do need to control
that border, and I hope it helps.
A long time ago ancient Chinese sought security from bar-
baric hordes that swept down from the north.
They built the great wall of China, 1,500 miles long and 40 to
50 feet high. Yet in the first 100 years China was invaded three
times. The enemies simply bribed a gatekeeper, then marched
through.
A nation is only as strong as the character of its people.

It's all about choices

Editor:
In response to Bob
Bowden's Guest Column on
Oct. 15,1 Ihave the answer to
his question. It is "no."
There is no problem. The
fact is that his son was pre-
sented with the option to
purchase comprehensive
auto coverage and chose
not to. 'Perhaps he had
other bills, Christmas gifts
or beer on his mind-I don't
know him. But he made a
choice that impacted his

There is no problem, other
than that some people can-
not see pastthe present. In
this case, he got off easy.
The cost of his truck was his
loss. Every day people fool-
ishly ignore their needs, not
only for good auto cover-
age, but flood, health, life,
disability and long term
care insurance as well.
Those choices can have a
much larger and perma-
nent impact on one's life. I


hope the man learned his
lesson, and won't have to
repeat it.

Cooperation beats
building fences
Editor:
Oct. 26, President Bush
signed a bill in Washington to
construct 700 miles of fencing
along the Mexican Border to
prevent illegals from entering
our country.
This is a sad day indeed,
when a free democracy
stoops so low. Fences create
hostility and tells us of our
defeated foreign policy with
our neighboring countries.
It's unbelievable that
President Bush would sign
this bill. Democracies don't
build fences to keep people
out.
Years ago the Russians
erected the Berlin Wall in
Germany, When President
Reagan visited Berlin, he told
the Russians to "Tear down
that wall." Now we are doing


what we condemned in
Europe.
This bill proves that our
politicians can't work togeth-
er and policy has totally failed
in our backyard.
The fences will surely be
breached. Our government
must work with Mexico and
control America politically
and get them to cooperate to
curtail this stream of illegals
to our country.
Currently those countries
are doing little dr nothing to
stop this mass flow of people
because they are sending lots
of dollars home to support
their families.
It tells us how poor living
conditions are south of our
border. The poor come here
for a better life.
Our contractors are at
fault, too. They hire illegals
knowing they're breaking the
law. This won't stop until the
contractors are fined and
forced to.
Once the illegals know
they can't find work here,
they'll slow down coming
here. This is a big problem,
but fences won't solve it.

We must show unity to
end this war
Editor:
When I was a kid I use to
wait for Sunday to read the
funnies. Now I get to read the
letters to the editor. Talk
about hypocritical hatred for
the president. If the so-called


left could rewrite Gehesis,
Chapter 3 they would say that
Bush was the serpent that
made Eve eat the apple.
Might as well. He has been
accused of everything else.
For eight years prior to
the present president we
were straddled with excuses
of what words mean. "I did
not have sex with that girl,"
echoes in my political
brain.
Both political parties are
not pure as the driven snow.
They all have qualities of
unfair motives. The contin-
uing problem for this presi-
dent is not whether we
should be in Iraq, it's sup-
porting the troops. They are
there now. Put our political
differences into winning this
conflict. Use whatever it
takes to bring them home
proud.
As a Vietnam vet, God be
with our troops. We thank them
for their sacrifice for this coun-
try. Let it not become a political
toy for those who do not face
those dangerous enemies every
day.
Dividing this country
will cause more casualties.
Rather a united America
will end it. Sending this
message of unity will show
our support. Learn from the
past folks.
As it says in the Bible, "a
house divided will not
stand." Whether we be
Republicans or Democrats,
we, above all, are Am-
ericans.

Pick up after yourself


Agreeing. I am calling in
regard to a statement that was
made on banning butts on
the beaches. I couldn't agree
with those people more. My
husband and I walk that
beach frequently in the
evenings and it's full of butts,
so I just take a plastic bag and
I pick up the butts. And I'm
sick and tired of picking up
other people's butts. So
please, if you walk our beach,
keep your butts in your own
pocket.
Jacked up. I live near the
intersection ofAlbee Farm Road
and the bypass inVenicp. There's
quite a bit of construction
around our area, and I noticed
in the Gondolier Sun an article
on "No Engine Brakes." There is
a nursing home, there is a senior
citizen housing .apartment and
a mobile home park at the cor-
ner of the bypass and Albee
Farm Road, and I believe there
are dump trucks that are jack-
braking all the way down Albee
Farm Road to the stop light I
was wondering if there was a
law in Florida about this. I came
from LasVegas, where construc-
tion is 24/7, and the signs do not
read "No Engine Brakes Please";
the signs read "Jack Braking First
Offense $1,000 Fine." This is a
rude way of totally disturbing
the public, and I think a law
should be passed in Venice or
Florida, or whatever it takes,. I
think it should be a fine. I don't
know what the purpose ofjack-
braking is, but whatever it is, it is
very, very, very disturbing to
people in residential areas who
have to listen to it I hope some-
thing is done.

Many of us share this experi-
ence. Bowden asks if there is a
solution. Curiously, the solu-
tion appears on page 6A of
the same newspaper in an
article on Hans Behrens, the
code enforcement director of
the city of Venice. He enforces
state and local building laws.
He also makes sure that the,
contractor doing business in
the city is properly licensed
and insured. If he finds that
these people are not licensed
or insured, he considers this a
serious offense and calls the
police or the state regulatory
agency. Huh? It's that simple?
You just enforce the law? Too
bad Behrens isn't running for,

enforce laws that protect law-
abiding citizens.
Clean air. There definitely

Trash talking. I'm calling

ple made by political parties.
The phone rings, I pick it up
and someone is ranting and


raving about some terrible
thing that some politician has
done, which, having read the
politician's position in the

I'm a third-generation Rep-
ublican, and I'm voting on
candidates, one by one,
sometimes Republicans, and
sometimes Democrats. I'm
here to say that any time I get
a Republican rant against the

voting for the Democrat; and
I urge all Republicans to do

talking has got to stop.

ridiculous to me. Happy Hallo-

EDITOR'S NOTE: Every year we
get a few phone calls asking when

Puttin' on the Ritz in Osprey?


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


-- Who in Osprey could have
guessed, back in 1998, when
Henry Rodriguez began
:acquiring parcels of land at
Bay Street and U.S. 41, that a
miniature Ritz-Carlton hotel
would rise in the middle of a
$300 million shopping and
residential complex?
The prospect could be-
come fact within months, if
Sarasota accepts a modified
site development plan sub-
mitted a few days ago to the
; Osprey Revitalization Com-
mittee.
;: Bay Street Partners, an
amalgam of the Waterford
Companies in Venice and
Crossgate Partners, a Georgia
firm, bought the develop-
: ment rights from Rodriguez.
T: hey now seek a special
,exception to Osprey's height
limi,y.build a 26-room luxu-
ry hotel .atop a four-star
restaurant and parking in the
midst of Bay Street Village &
Towncenter.


Construction of the shop-
ping and residential complex
began last month. It will
include 532 condominiums
and townhouses, about
98,000 square feet of retail
and office space and the Mid-
County Public Library, a
25,000-square-foot building,
of two stories, all around a vil-
lage green.
Part of a worldwide net-
work of smaller, independent
hotels, the "mini-Ritz" would
offer the same luxury services
as the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota
for the same prices. Rooms
average $469 a night in the
Sarasota hotel. The highest
rate is $549.
Guests in such hotels get
five presentations of bever-
ages and hors d'oeuvres a
day; a salon that provides
"facelifts" and acupuncture;
. even a service that pampers
pets brought along by guests.
,Highly,.personalized, services
for sophisticated travelers is
the way the hotels pitch their
accommodations.
"This sounds wonderful,"


said Rick Noyes of the com-
mittee. I don't know if I'll ever
plan a stay there; it's less than
a mile from my home. But it
will certainly make a terrific
destination for discriminat-
ing travelers."
Changes
Much has changed in
Osprey since Rodriguez put
together the 59-acre site from
41 separate properties.
The Wal-Mart SuperCenter
on U.S. 41, operating since
October 2005, acquired 23
acres from Rodriguez. The
$11 million purchase fol-
lowed almost two years of
.zoning changes, design and
construction of traffic
upgrades on the highway
required by Sarasota county
and overseen by Rodriguez.
A similar process for the
Bay Street Village complex
followed. It adheres to the
tenets of New Urbanism
development, which advo-
cates walkable neighbor-
hoods and traditional hous-
ing.


Rodriguez' agreement with
Bay Street Partners requires
him to serve as an architec-
tural review committee.
"That means that I deter-
mine the architectural stan-
dards, but I don't control the
physical elements," he said.
The library, ninth in the
countywide system, will occupy
3 1/2 acres of land donated by
Rodriguez to the county. It is
expected to include a maritime
collection focusing on the com-
munity's beginnings as a fishing
village.
More than 55,000 house-
holds will be served by Bay
Street Village's shops, offices,
gourmet and family restau-
rants, according to the devel-
opers. Retail and office space
will be available for lease or
purchase, a growing trend
nationwide in commercial
real estate.


Boundary board members sought


STAFF REPORT

Another new school is com-
ingto NorthPort.Due to growth
in the North Port area, the
School Board of Sarasota
County is considering changing
attendance boundaries for a
new middle school
Beginning in August 2008,
students residing in certain
areas of the Heron CreekMiddle
School zone and feeder zones
from Toledo Blade Elementary
School, Lamarque Elementary
School, Glenallen Elementary
School and Cranberry Eleme-
ntary School may be affected.
New Middle School "EE" will
be constructed on Panacea
Boulevard, north of the Snover
Waterway.

The school district will be
forming a Boundary Advisory
Committee to assist in the
development of the proposed
changes. Its taskwillbe to create
and/or revise attendance areas
to ensure that both Heron Creek
and the new school have pro-


grams, staff and facilities to
meet the educational needs of
all students.
Among the committee's
membership will be: represen-
tatives from Heron Creek
Middle School and Toledo
. Blade Elementary School (and
others if necessary), including
the SchoolAdvisory Committee
Chairs; the principals of each
school; four parent representa-
tives from each school who live
in different geographic areas
(selected jointly by the SAC
Chair and principal); and a
teacher from each school
The first meeting of the
Boundary Advisory Committee
is planned for 6:00 p.m. on
Tuesday November 28, 2006, at
Heron Creek Middle School.
The public is encouraged to
provide input during the entire
Boundary Advisory Committee
planning and School Board
process.

ELIZABETH HAYS
OWEN
88, died Tuesday morning,
November 7, 2006, at her residence
in Vicar's Landing, Ponte Vedra
Beach, Florida.
She was born December 28, 1917
and was raised in Washington, DC
and Winchester, Kentucky.
Elizabeth was the proud mother of
5 children and the loving wife of
Webster Jennings Owen, who died
in Venice, Florida in 1996. They
were married for 57 years and
.raised their children in Lathrup
Village, Michigan and Venice,
Florida. Elizabeth received a
bachelor's Degree from Hollins
College in Virginia and a Master's
Degree in Economics from the
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
She passed her belief in the
importance of higher education
along to each of her children, as
well as her dedication to
community service and her
successful quest to leave the world
,a better place than the way she
found it.
Elizabeth was the President of the
Southern Oakland Girl Scouts
Council in Michigan and active in
the League of Women Voters in
both Michigan and Florida. In
Venice, Florida she was appointed
by Governor Graham to serve on
the South West Florida Water
Management District and also co-
authored a study of the Aquifer
System of Sarasota County
published in 1999 by the League of
Women Voters.
She had an indefatigable joy of life,
a relentless optimism and a firm
belief in the goodness of everyone
she met.
Elizabeth is survived by: Isabelle
Owen Spence of Ponte Vedra
Beach, FL, Webster J. Owen, Jr. of
Sacramento, CA, R. Thomas Owen
of Flagstaff, AZ. and Dr. Clarence
H. Owen of Greensboro, NC. She'
was preceded in death by her son,
William F. Owen, of Denver, CO.
Her 10 grandchildren and 3 great
grandchildren carry her love, and
her love of life, into the future.
A memorial service will be held for
Elizabeth in Venice, Florida at a
later date. The family requests
memorial donations be directed to
the Alzheimer's Association
(www.alz.org) or other deserving
charitable organizations.

Crusaders meet end in Pop Warner regionals


STAFF REPORT

Up until Saturday, the Venice Crusaders have had
things go their way in a magical unbeaten season.
But on Saturday, the Crusaders finally met their
match in Port St. Lucie.
Playing the Fort Pierce Chiefs in the opening
round of the Pop Warner Southeast Regionals, the
Crusaders were dealt a 26-0 defeat.
The Crusaders, the Peace River Conference
Junior Midget Division 2 champs, saw their season
end with a record of 11-1.


Fort Pierce lives on to advance to the next round
of the playoffs this coming Saturday in Tampa.
Fort Pierce used its speed to break out to an early
advantage. Then the Chiefs played tough defense to
shut down Anthony Alexander, Wesley Ojeda and
company.
The Crusaders finished the regular season 9-0
and were seeded first in the Peace River Conference
playoffs. They defeated the Naples Hurricanes and
then the North Fort Myers Raiders to advance to the
regionals.
Meanwhile, three Venice Vikings cheerleading


squads will be heading to the regional cheer-off
competition at Disney over the Thanksgiving week-

end.
The Knights, Lancers and Warriors were all win-
ners at the Peace River Conference Cheer-Off at
Florida Gulf Coast University.
The teams are currently raising money to make
the trip to Disney's Wide World of Sports.
The Vikings have traditionally done well in com-
petition, thanks to excellent coaching throughout
the organization.


Ranch kickers have too much for Lady Indians


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

After opening the season
with wins over Port Charlotte
and North Port, the Venice
High girls soccer team saw
things speed up big time
Friday night with Lakewood
Ranch in town.
The Lady Mustangs are the
preseason district favorites
with a strong squad from
attack to the backline.
Venice played the Ranch
tough, but the visitors simply
had too much in a 4-1 victory
over the Lady Indians at
Powell-Davis Stadium.
Ranch improved its record
to 4-0, while Venice fell to 2-1.
The Lady Mustangs domi-
nated play the first 18 min-
utes of the match, but Venice
was able to dodge bullets with
several shots just wide of the
net. Lady Indian keeper
Diana Lambrecht was also
sharp in making some big
stops.
Ranch finally cashed in at
the 18:30 mark. The Lady
Mustangs kept the pressure
on, resulting in an own goal
just a minute later.
Then the Lady Indians set-
tfled down and took the action
to Ranch.
Venice had appeared to cut
'the deficit in half 10 minutes
later when Kristina Swanson
rocketed home a direct kick
from 20 yards out. But the
officials ruled offsides, negat-
ing the goal.
The score was 2-0 at half-
time.
Venice continued to play
well in the second half. The
work paid off at the 50-
minute mark, as Chelsea Rose
caught keeper Rachel Valori
out of the net. Rose pounced
on a loose ball and poked the
ball home.
All of a sudden, it was a 2-1
match.
Ranch got it back nine
minutes later to go up 3-1.
That didn't stop from com-

ing at the Lady Mustangs in
waves. \\ith 13 minutes left,
Rose set up Myra Jenkins.
Once again, Valori was way
out of the net. Jenkins' shot
was swept away at the goal
line by a defender. Two min-
utes later, Rose had another
chance on a pass from


Swanson. Again, a Ranch
defender cleared the ball just
before it got to the line.
Ranch changed goalkeep-
ers right after that.
With six minutes left,
Melanie Murphywas run over
be a defender on a break.
Swanson had a shot from 16


yards out on a direct kick, but
fired over the crossbar.
Ranch clinched it with
three minutes remaining as
wonder woman Lindsay
Thompson scored on a
breakaway.


The Venice junior varsity
also fell to Ranch, 2-0. One of
the goals was on a penalty
kick.
The Lady Indians play at
Southeast Tuesday night.


Lady Indian hoopsters hope to be a lot better this season


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High girls varsi-
ty basketball begins the 2006-
07 season with renewed vigor
following a disappointing
2005-06 campaign.
Last season was marred by
injuries and a season-ending
10-game losing streak. The
Lady Indians lost in the first
round of districts.
Venice only lost one senior
to graduation. Senior guard
Natalie Gaudreau is healthy
after missing almost her
entire junior year.
There are lots of girls who
gained valuable experience
last season. They should be
ready to step up and take up
the challenge.
"There's a big change from
last year-like night and day,"
said second-year coach
George "The Animal" Stritz.
"Last year, the girls didn't
know me and I didn't know
them. The attitude and work
ethic are so much better. The
girls are pushing each other."
Stritz describes practices
as intense.
Hopefully, they will have
the Lady Indians ready for
their Tuesday night opener at


Lemon Bay.
This year's squad has three
seniors, a whopping nine
juniors and one sophomore
and one freshman.
The seniors all have a lot of
varsity experience.
Gaudreau was a standout
point guard her freshman.
and sophomore years before
her ankle injury last year.
She will play a wing posi-
tion this year, either popping
from the outside or driving to
the hole.
Her ballhandling skills will
help break presses.
The tallest player on the
team is 6-2 Samantha
Worthington.
She will play some post,
but she also has a nice shot
from the corner.
Jamie Lane is a guard /wing
whose shot has improved a
lot according to Stritz.
The strong junior class is
guard heavy.
Jen Thoennissen is the new
point guard.
Diana Mehserle is known
for her hustle and suffocating
defense.
Lindsay Riegsecker is good
from long range.
Lauren Ramey is a well-
rounded player.
1


"A lot of them will play
point and two guard," Stritz
said.
Junior forwards include
Chloe West, Kaylee Ream,
Kim Pinkerton and Megan
Taylor.
Meredith Meerman is a
sophomore forward.
KirstenWachle is a promis-
ing freshman guard.
Stritz will play mostly
man-to-man defense. There
will also be trapping zone
pressure.
"Our strengths are our
defense and our shooting has
improved over last year,"
Stritz said. "A lot of girls
played all summer long."
Rebounding against taller
teams will be a chore.
"We have to rely on funda-
mentals," Stritz said. "We
have to box out."
Stritz has set the bar high
as far as goals.
"We want to win the dis-
tricts," he said. "Port
Charlotte, North Port and
Southeast should be tough
teams in the district."
Stritz is assisted by his
daughter Alicia and Don
Remo. Ann Ross will be the
junior varsity coach.

Sarasota County Cone Zone, Nov. 13-19


The following is a summary
of Sarasota County construc-
tion, repair and maintenance
projects that are expected to
have an impact on local traffic
during the week beginning
Monday, Nov. 13, and continu-
ing through Sunday, Nov. 19. It
includes all road or lane clo-
sures approved by the county
engineer.
Colonia Lane, Nokomis:
Works continues on the
Colonia Lane improvement
project. Colonia Lane is
closed to through traffic at the
east end at Albee Farm Road
and at the west end at Nash
Avenue. Access to the closed
section of road way is limited
to local traffic only. Signs, bar-
ricades, and flagmen will be
present as needed to ensure
that vehicles and pedestrians
can move about safely. The
detour route (traveling east) is
south on Nash Avenue to
Nippino Trail, north on
Nippino Trail to Colonia
Lane, then east on Colonia
Lane to Riverview Drive,
north on Riverview Drive to
Florence Street, then east on
Florence Street to Albee Farm
Road. The detours, are expect-
ed to continue through early
November. Roads impacted
by the closure are limited to
local traffic only and are sub-
ject to enforcement. The pro-
ject includes the addition of 4
foot bicycle lanes, sidewalks,
streetlights .and a waterline
along an approximately 0.9
mile stretch of Colonia Lane
from Nash.Avenue to Albee
Farm Road. The project will


also provide gateway and
streetscape features, includ-
ing decorative streetlights
and street signs, a decorative
surface treatment (medallion
pattern) at the Colonia Lane
and Albee Farm Road inter-
section, enhanced pedestrian
crosswalks of textured con-
crete and landscaping. The
project began in July and is
expected to be complete in
March 2007. -
Bay Point, Nokomis: Con-
struction continues on a pro-
ject to install waterlines to
495 homes in the Bay Point
area of Nokomis. The project
area is bordered on the north
byAlbee Road, to the south by
Bayview Parkway, to the east
by North Tamiami Trail, and
to the west by Lyons Bay.
Work will include the follow-
ing streets: Pameto Road,
Palm Avenue, Bayview Park--
way, Pine Road, Pecan Lane,,
Park, Drive and Four Bays
Drive. Lane closures are riot
expected since the work is
being done in the county
rights of way, but motorists
are advised to use caution
while traveling through,,the
area. Construction in the
area should be finished by the
end of the year.
Center Road, Venice: Work
continues this week on a
major roadway construction,
project to widen Center Road
from River Road to Jacaranda
Boulevard, and to improve
the Jacaranda/Center and
River/Center intersection.
Night work is scheduled
through Nov. 9 for resurfacing


the Jacaranda/Center road
intersection Nov. 7-9. Venice
East Boulevard at Center
Road and the Jacaranda/-
Center intersection will have
intermittent lane closures.
The Jacaranda/Center inter-
section will have lane shifts to
accommodate road-widen-
ing and resurfacing, work.
Traffic will continue to use
the newly paved lanes from
East Venice Boulevard to
River Road with a few lane
shifts to accommodate mis-,
cellaneous work. Motorists
should use extreme caution
and expect extensive delays
while traveling through the
area arid are advised to find
an alternate route. The speed
limit through the construc-
tion area is reduced from 45
to 35 mph and is designated a
No Passing Zone. The project
includes widening a 3.6-mile
stretch of existing two-lane
roadway to a divided four-
lane road with landscaped
medians, streetlights, 4-foot
bicycle lanes, traffic signaliza-
tion, roadway drainage and
stormwater ponds. A 10-foot-
wide, combination path and
sidewalk will be built on both
sides of the roadway as part of
the county's trails system.
Construction began in Oct-
ober 2005 and is expected to
be complete in April 2007.
Pine Street, Englewood:
Work continues on, the Pine
Street Improvement Project
in Englewood that will extend
Pine Street north of River
Road to link to the Englewood
Sports Complex and the Park


Forest subdivision. The con-
struction of this new half-
mile road will create minor
impacts on River Road. The
work includes two 12 foot
travel lanes, 4-foot bike lanes
and a separate 10-foot multi-
use trail with access to the
sports complex. Two storm-
water ponds will be con-
structed to help improve the
drainage in the area. Work is
expected to continue through
May2007.
Mcintosh Road Phase II,
Sarasota: Work continues on
the reconstruction and
widening of McIntosh Road
from Proctor Road to Hicks
Street and other improve-
ments. Workers will be
installing storm drains near
the lanes of travel this week.
Motorists and pedestrians are
advised to .exercise caution
while traveling through this
area. This project will turn a
two lane rural roadway into a
modern four lane divided
urban highway. Among the
improvements are bike lanes,
traffic signalization, side-
walks, streetlights, curb and
gutter, storm drainage and
stormwater management
systems, and installation of a
new vacuum sewer. Con-
struction is expected to be
complete in July 2007.
University Parkway at
Tuttle Avenue, Sarasota: Work
continues this week on the
intersection improvements at-
, .University Parkway and Turtle
Avenue. Crews are clearing
land near the intersection.
Traffic impacts should be lim-


ited at this time. The intersec-
tion .,project involves the
reconstruction of the road-
way at the northbound
approach to University Park-
way on Tuttle Avenue from
61st Street. In addition, there
are sidewalks, minor signal-
ization modifications, storm-
water modifications and
pond construction and util-
ity adjustments. Median
changes and lane improve-
ments will be made on
University Parkway, including
the lengthening 'of the west-
bound to southbound left
turn lane, and shoulder and
lane improvements with a
new eastbound to south-
bound right turn lane. The
mast arm will be replaced.


Work is expected to continue
through July2007.

project to remove and replace
the vegetation in the median
of Tuttle Avenue betweenmBee
Ridge Road and Myrtle Street

O!N 'The
chronic
disorder known
as fibromyalgia is a somewhat
puzzling condition of unknown
origin. It is characterized by
tenderness at specific points in the
body including the neck, shoulders,
back, hips, and upper and lower
extremities. Fibromyalgia sufferers also
experience fatigue, headaches, sleep
disturbances, and a variety of other
symptoms. While not truly a form of
arthritis because it doesn't cause
) inflammation or damage to the joints,
fibromyalgia is considered to be a
"rheumatic condition" (one which impairs
the joints and/or soft tissues and causes
chronic pain). Because fibromyalgia is
'difficult to diagnose and treat, patients
often look to a variety of treatments.
Many find chiropractic treatment to be
helpful, either by itself or in conjunction
with other therapies.
P.S. Fibromyalgia affects 3-6 million
Americans, 80%-90% of whom are
women, although men and children may
also be affected.

Judge not, lest ye be judged


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Three chefs and a writer
sat down to eat, and eat, and
then eat some more.
The occasion was the
annual Inter-club Cooking
Competition. The 2006 com-
petition was held recently at
the Venice Yacht Club. VYC
chef Mark Pegram orchestrat-
ed the event, choosing Artic
Char as the entree meat, pro-
viding the club kitchen for
the chef's prep work and
arranging for judges. He also
prepared a meal for nearly
150 diners from the clubs
involved in the event.
The chef judges were Brian
D. Knecht, CEC, AAC, the
apprenticeship teacher of
culinary arts at Sarasota
County Technical Institute;
Wendy Wallis of Sundance
Catering; and John Dutton,
CEC, CDM, the director of
dining services of Morrison
Senior Dining, a member of
the Compass Group. I was the
fourth judge, eminently qual-
ified by several years of eating
out and in.
Competing chefs
The competing chefs were:
William Ecker of The Oaks
Country Club, Jean Pierre Pel-
let of Pelican Point Golf &
Country Club and Frank Hag-
aman of the University Club.
While the competing chefs
were doing their thing in the
club kitchen, we four judges
were sequestered in the club's
small private dining room
just off the pool deck. We
were armed only with a pen
and a judging criteria sheet
for each chef's presentation.
The cooking chefs could earn
up to 10 points for presenta-
tion, 40 points for a combina-
tion of such things as the
combination of 'foods, taste
and whether the food was
properly cooked and an addi-
tional five points for whether
or not we would order the
dish if on the menu of a
restaurant. In one case, I
would not. In two cases, the
food was not cooked to the
degree it needed to be.


We Were given bottles of
sparkling water and crusty
rolls with butter but no other
accompaniments to the,
entrees prepared for the chal-
lenge. With three entrees,
there was no shortage of
food. This is one case where
being a member of the clean
plate club would not be a
good idea. A taste would suf-
fice, especially for the judges
who planned to stay to din-
ner afterward at the club. So
much for good intentions.
Offerings
The first dish offered fea-
tured a delicate rectangle of
pan-seared Artic Char placed
atop a 3-inch round of blue
corn meal polenta that was
itself topped with braised
escarole. That delicate stack
was set atop a sparse driz-
zling of black current and
bacon dressing. Topping it all
were sprigs of parsley so
young that the familiar ser-
rated leaves were barely dis-
cernible.
Our first challenge was
whether or not to give this
elegant presentation a 10,
knowing there were two dish-
es yet to come. I wrote down
a 9, silently challenging the'
other two chef offerings to be
better than this one. Later I
learned that the other judges
made a similar decision.
Watching the professional
chefs jab their forks into the
currant bacon sauce, I did the
same. The blending of flavors
was delightful. Then I tasted
the polenta also delightful.
So was the braised escarole.
The-Artic Char was perfectly
cooked, slightly crisp around
the edges but in no case over-
or under-cooked. This left me
with two challenges. If I gave
it a perfect 40 points for the
taste and other aspects and 5
for wanting to order it at a
restaurant, what would I do if
the other two entrees were
equally good. It would be like
giving appropriate marks to
Michelle Kwan for skating a
perfect program, deserving of
* 6.0, under the former judging
system, yet not being able to
do so because there were sev-


eral skaters to follow her. I
awarded this chef 39 of 40
points and five points for the
final category. I now had two
points to work with for the
other two chefs, should their
offerings be as pleasing to eye
and palette.
The bigger challenge was
to not clean my plate of this
delightful offering. I failed.
Our waiter brought us
warm rolls and we each took
a bite of one, a way of cleans-
ing one's palette. We had each
cleaned our plates.
"I must have been really
hungry," Dutton said, the rest
of us concurring.
New Silver
New silverware was placed
before us and then, the sec-
ond entree. It: was described
as Phyllo-wrapped mousse of
Artic Char with a red beet sor-
rel sauce. It looked like a tor-
tilla wrap cut in half on the
diagonal before being placed
on the plate. It was sitting in a
plate full of two sauces. One
half the plate was the color of
red beets and the other half
was the color of cooked arti-
chokes. A yellow pansy was to
one side and on the other
side, a small pile of what I
learned was seaweed. That all
this 'color was placed on a
plate filled with additional
pattern led me to give mini-
mum points for presentation.
My first-place choice was
solidly ahead even without
awarding points for the taste
and combination of foods as
well as how it was cooked.
Discussion
We discussed the descrip-
tion given this dish and de-
cided it would have been bet-
ter to say it was served with
red beet AND sorrel sauces,
as we were expecting one, not
two, sauces given the chefs
description of this entree.
Less sauce and a less decora-
tive plate also would have
helped score higher presen-
tation marks. None of us
knew which chef had pre-
pared any of the entrees but I
was pretty sure that this one
had been prepared by a less
experienced chef or at least


one who was less experi-
enced in entering contests. In
trying to impress us with a
mixture of gourmet ingredi-
ents and with a lavish presen-
tation, he went over the top
so that the flavors muddied
one another and the presen-
tation was too busy. Had he
offered a smaller serving ac-
cented with one of those sau-
ces'dotted on a plain white
plate, my opinion might have
been vastly different.
Because I did not clean
this plate as I had the first
offering, I had plenty of room
for the third entree Flame-
broiled medallions of Artic
Char with Morel mushrooms,
Maine lobster and bouill-
abaisse cream. There were
three medallions, separated
by three torpedo-shaped
chunks of boiled purple pota-
toes. A sprig of lavender
topped the lobster claw meat
that was in the center of the
three medallions. Morel
mushrooms cascaded from
the lavender and there was
just enough sauce drizzled
around the entree that it not
only looked good enough to
eat, it was. Again I cleaned my
plate with one exception.
The potatoes were about two
minutes shy of being cooked
as thoroughly as I would have
liked. That turned out to be a
good thing because it made
my decision for me, putting
this offering in second place
by a scant two points.
Debut
As a writer I have covered
the Pillsbury Bake-Off and as
a skating judge I have judged
hundreds of skating competi-
tions up to and including
nationals. This was my debut
as a food judge. I would do it
again in a minute, if only to
work with the likes of the
three professional chefs who
also were on the judging
panel.
But mostly, I would love
the chance to taste some-
thing as wonderful as Pan-
seared Artic Char with
braised escarole, blue corn
meal polenta and warm black
current and bacon dressing.

Julie Roselle's home on a
side street on Siesta Key is
definitely for the'birds. In her
front yard, Saint Francis, a
life-sized bird feeder, greets
you. A bleached-dut flamingo
perches in a nearby tree. Real
live cardinals feed at a bird
feeder. Just a few steps away
across the street on a beauti-
ful little pond, gallinules sail
along while koi lurk under-
neath the placid waters.
Throughout Julie's yard, there
are wonderful places to sit
and take in the scene. Don't
miss "Love Corner" in the
back yard, where Venus
awaits you.
Julie's yard is just one of 12
that are featured in this year's
Gardening for Wildlife Home-
scape Tour on Saturday, Nov.
18, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
With personalized ap-
proaches to attracting wild-
life, they are part of a fun-
filled Saturday tour of Sara-
sota wildlife-friendly yards.

Railroad vine adds a splash of

There's no lawn to water,

Schneider's yard where a
peanut ground cover has
taken over those chores.
Instead, the owners can relax

WELL BEING


What to put in the bath to ease your aches and pains


SUZY COHEN, R.PH
COLUMNIST

Q: Why do Epsom salts help
relieve arthritis pain? What's in
it, and what else can I put in my
bath to help? Someone sug-
gested essential oils. DJ.,
Denver
A: Epsom salts are magne-


sium sulfate. In the bath,
magnesium breaks apart
from the sulfate and both get
absorbed into your skin.
Both substances, reduce
inflammation and pain. The
hot water is also soothing
and improves your circula-
tion you want more
blood flow (and oxygen) to
sore suffocating muscle cells.
These cells need the oxygen,
so improving circulation in
any way is helpful.; You can
also put Naturopathica's
"Arnica Muscle & Joint Bath
and Body Oil" in the bath. I
like this one because it con-
tains basil, rosemary, bay
laurel and arnica a sooth-
ing combination that should
relieve sore, achy muscles
and joint pain from


osteoarthritis, rheumatoid
arthritis or overexertion.
Arnica is also found in many
over-the-counter arthritis
rubs because it increases cir-
culation and reduces
swelling and joint pain.
As far as essential oils go, I
need to make sure you real-
ize that you can't just buy a
bottle of oil and put a few
drops into your bathtub -
your friend told you wrong.
Most pure essential oils need
to be diluted in a carrier oil
(like almond oil) or you
could "burn" your skin.
Lavender (for relaxation) is
one exception. This is why I
recommend that people buy
blended mixtures com-
bined in the right ratio to
soothe your skin, your sens.


es and your ailment, whatev-
er it is. You see products like
this at salons and bath and
body shops in the malls. For.
more information on the
infused essential oil men-
tioned above, visit naturo-
pathica.com or call (800)
592-7995.
Q: Used to be you could just
buy soap, but now it comes in
all sorts of types. Should I buy
the "antibacterial" type or not?
Something tells me those
chemicals are bad. K.N., Port
Charlotte, Fla.
A: Before we talk about
antibacterials, let's just talk
about soap. If yoirGoogle
soap's sudsing agent, "sodi-
um lauryl sulfate" (aka SLS)


you will find a lot of dirt.
Apparently, studies show SLS
causes skin/scalp irritation
and liver damage. SLS is.
found in most soaps, sham-
poos, detergents and tooth-
pastes. Now add the antibac-
terials and you have a rela-
tively chemical-laden mix-
ture to kill off the bacteria. I
don't know what's worse, the
nasty bugs or the harmful
chemicals to kill them.
America is getting germ-
phobic. I don't think these
"supercleansers" are any bet-
ter than plain soap and
water because there isn't any
real hard evidence they lead
to fewer infections. As a
pharmacist, I imagine that
our bacteria will become
resistant to our antibacterial


efforts. Also, these soaps dry
out your skin. I think routine
washing with plain soap and
water will do the trick, even
for kids. Now if you want
your soap to be free of SLS,
too, then go to the natural
health food store or look
online.

Did you know? The prescrip-
tion drug Topamax (topiramate)
is often helpful for people who
suffer with migraines and con-
stant head paid.

SENIOR SCENE


Dozing in class and the virtues of home ec


'^fc- ^ Y- -


VIRGINIA DEUPREE
COLUMNIST

Deep down in the recesses
of my mind has been the
memory of a most disgraceful
and degrading insult to me by
a professor at Indiana Uni-
versity, 72 years ago. Some-
times when we are older, we
take things that happened
years ago and finally face
them.
Well, maybe my case is not
that bad, but something has


triggered this memory.
I was so embarrassed by
this incident that I had not
even told my children about
this humiliating day in my
life, but the other day I was
telling my son, John, about it.
He just laughed uproariously
and, in that voice that only a
son can use to admonish a
parent, suggested I cleanse
my soul by telling you all
about it. And he didn't even
feel sorry for me!
Well, to begin with, I fool-
ishly decide to major in home
economics at Indiana Unive-
rsity. Little did I know this
entailed two years of chem-
istry! I slept through the lec-
tures and didn't understand
the lab at all. I guess someone
did some political maneuver-
ing and I got by with a C-.
Then came food chem-
istry. We had food lab two
days a week. We made baking


powder biscuits and soda bis-
cuits to see why they raised. I
guess they thought that was
very important for the out-
side world. I don't remember
learning anything important
in that class the entire year.
Now we are going to get to
the point of this whole story.
The ultimate disgrace any
college sophomore could suf-
fer!
In the three-day-a-week
lectures at 1 p.m., no matter
how hard I tried, I fell asleep. I
started drinking coffee and
going without lunch, getting
plenty of sleep at night, all to
no avail. Now, do you know
what this professor and previ-
ous second-grade teacher did
to me? When she saw me
napping, she made me, a col-
lege sophomore, stand in the
corner facing the wall for the
rest of the class! And twice she
did that!


I guess she thought she'd
teach me a lesson. Can you
imagine what would happen
if any professor tried this
today? Back then, one didn't
dare report such an unspeak-
able fate to the authorities, so
I suffered the ignominy of my
youth, swallowed my pride as
I was told and stored the
embarrassing memory in that
black box where we keep
these things.
I dunno!!!
Mind you, Indiana was a
very good university, so I
don't want you thinking bad
about them. At that time they
had one of the best, if not the
best, schools of journalism in
the country and there my
grades balanced the bad
chemistry marks.
I had been an avid 4 H'er,
entering my cooking and
sewing in competition when I
decided to major in home ec


and also. asked to minor in
journalism, thinking I could
write for a woman's maga-
zine. "No, no," said the lady
dean, "those two don't go
together." Oh, well, that's
okay, I finished with more
credits in journalism anyway.
Maybe I did sleep through
classes, but there was a lot I
should have learned in home
ec. When we were seniors, the
man whom I would eventual-
ly marry and I were in charge
of a Swing In/Swing Out
Party. This party was for ingo-
ing and outgoing staff of the
"Indiana Daily Student," a
large, almost daily newspa-
per, published by the stu-
dents. We were planning the
menu and I suggested we
might have ham. Some man
said, "Well, I'm not so sure -
some of the staff is Jewish."
Now, I had lived on a farm
until I was 13 and had com-


pleted four years of home ec.
"Is ham pork?" I asked. All
that food chemistry and
farming and I did not even
know that. it would have been
nice if we had learned about
cooking of poultry, meats,
vegetables, etc.
OK, I shouldn't admit to
my stupidity, but that's how it
happened, folks.
Oh, and that sleeping
through classes thing. I did
not know it at the time but
this was probably due to
attention deficit disorder. No
one had heard of such a thing
back then.
Virginia Deupree is 93, and
almost blind. She is agradu-
ate of Indiana University,
noted for its School of
Journalism. Virginia was a
city editor and a columnist
for many years, and now
resides in Venice.

Flying for Thanksgiving means swallowing higher airfares


BY SUZANNE MARTA
GUESTWRITER

Thanksgiving travelers:
Prepare to pay more for air-
line tickets this year.
The heavy passenger loads
that helped to drive up prices
over the summer are expect-
ed to continue, signaling
higher airfares through the
holiday season and the third
consecutive year for price
increases.
More travelers are buying
plane tickets early in hopes of
finding better deals.
Bookings for the peak trav-
el days Wednesday, Nov.
22, and Sunday, Nov. 26 -
were up 42 percent nationally
as of Sept. 30, over the like
period last year, according to
research by Sabre Airline
Solutions.
Dallas resident Frank
McGovern bought his tickets
to fly nonstop to Tampa, on
American Airlines, more than
a month ago for $288. That's
about $50 more than he paid
last year, but he isn't sorry he

McGovem makes sure to
always plan well in advance
for holiday travel, and he tries
to avoid peak days whenever
possible.
Although he and his part-

Parsons said the best
deals tend to be for itiner-
aries that include flights on
Thanksgiving Day, that
Friday and Saturday, and
then Tuesday through
Thursday of the following
week. He also suggested
booking flights that didn't
leave at peak times.
"Be very, flexible, and try
alternative airports and alter-
native dates," Parsons said.
For example, a nonstop
American Airlines round-trip
ticket between Dallas/Fort
Worth International Airport
and Chicago's O'Hare Inter-
national Airport priced Friday
morning was available for as
low as $321.60, leaving Nov.
22 and returning Nov. 26.
Both flights required a
departure around 7 a.m.
Leaving later in the day, the
prices jumped by more than
$200.
Switching travel days

To begin or not to begin: pondering 'however'


Grammar is a lot like reli-
gion. There are a lot of shep-
herds out there capitalizing
on our desire to act like sheep.

seous" means not "sickened"
but "sickening," and in ;tantlv

In fact, one of the things I

authority who gets to lay
down the rules. And one of
the things I like least about

there's no single authority

authoritative "rule" books,

authority because our every-
day speech helps shape and
ultimately determine what is
"correct."
All this is nice when you
don't want to be bossed
around, but it's rather annoy-
ing when you want someone
in authority to make the call
on a certain issue. And it's
even more annoying when
you put your faith in one of
these shepherds just to see
him fall from grace.


For example, I often find
myself following and teach-
ings of Bryan Garner, author
of "Garner's Modern
American Usage." This guide
is the most comprehensive,
relevant and authoritative
collection of rules and guide-
lines I know. But every once in
a while, I'm reminded how
unwise it would be to join the
Church of Garner or of any
other grammarian, for that
matter.
This week, my reminder
came in the form of a mini-
-rant by Arnold Zwicky, one of

Language Log. The subject of
his rant: Gamer's opposition
to "however" at the beginning
of sentences.
First, Gamer's advice: "It
seems everyone has heard
that sentences should not
begin with this word -not,
that is, when a contrast is
intended. But doing so isn't a
grammatical error; it's merely
a stylistic lapse, the word 'but'
ordinarily being much prefer-
able."
Zwicky traces this idea
back to the early writings of


William Strunk Jr., which
include a flat-out prohibition
against this sentence-starting
"however."
(The linguists at Language
Log despise Strunk and
White, by the way. And while
I'm not prepared to take a
side, I'll admit they make
some pretty compelling argu-
ments.)
Zwicky argues that some
prohibitions against this use
of "however" are "extraordi-
narily silly."Others, he says,

WORD from page 9
are mere overreaction to the
fact that college students tend
to use this "however"" quite a
bit in the papers they write.
For me, well, Garner lost
me at "hello," so to speak. His
opener, "It seems everyone
has heard ..." made me a
skeptic because I, for one, had
never heard any such thing.
I agree with Garner's
assessment that there's no
grammatical problem with
starting a sentence with this
type of "however." But then
Garner banks most of his rec-
ommendation on what is
clearly a matter of personal
taste. "Stylistic lapse" and
"preferable" are examples of
personal opinions taken too
seriously kind of like a
preacher dubbing himself a
prophet.
Garner goes on. "'However'
- three syllables followed by
a comma is a ponderous
way of introducing a contrast,
and it leads to unemphatic
sentences."
But just as I get to interpret
whether "Thou shall not kill"
applies to my own choice to
hire an exterminator, I get to
interpret what, in my own
writing, is "ponderous" and
unemphaticc."
So do you.
So here's my command-
ment: Be aware that starting a
sentence with "however" may
make your sentence sound
stuffy, formal or weighted
down with too many sylla-
bles. But ultimately, you're
allowed to exercise reason
and your own free will.
Amen.

scientific specialty has gone
unheralded and virtually

The best known and most

been able to find is practiced
in Seattle's famous Pike Place

flounder and sailing salmon
delight the customers
because highly trained per-

another before presenting it,
neatly wrapped, to the buyer.
Many steps are saved for the
fishmongers who spend long
hours each day on their feet.
The ability to pass a salmon
thirty feet, with a perfect spi-
ral, deserves the same praise
as when a tight end snags a
Hail Mary in the corner of the
end zone just before the clock
runs out.
If Venice's own cold cut
quarterback were as flashy as
Seattle's, his notoriety would
have been assured long ago.
However, the inherent differ-

lunch meat has worked
against him, and because I'm
not sure if management is
aware of his special ability or
if they would condone it, I'll
not reveal his name or place
of employment in this col-
umn. Venice has far fewer
goofy West Coast type liberals
than Seattle, and I don't want
to get him in trouble with any
hidebound, traditionalist,
executives.
At his deli, the meat slicers
are several steps away from'
the scale. Even with practice,
hefting and hitting a half-
pound order of pastrami on
the nose can be a matter of
tiny fractions. Come up short
or a little over and it means an
extra hike from slicer to scale
and back. Our local expert

has, over time, perfected two
unique talents. The first is a
smooth underhanded toss,
which places the mound of
sliced meat or cheese directly

four feet away. All this takes is
much practice.
The second is where sci-
ence plays the major role, as
well as intimate familiarity
with an almost infinite variety
of cold cuts. To use an aero-
nautical term I have recently
made up, not all lunch meat
has the same "coefficient of
drag."
According to our expert,
salami has a tendency to "fly"
once it hits the scale and the
result can be the loss of the
top. slice or two unless the
toss is adjusted based on a
variety of factors such as
humidity and -the. tempera-
ture in the meat case.
Liverwurst, on the other
hand, is steady as the, rock of
Gibralter. Sliced chicken
breast also has a tendency to
"fly," perhaps having to do
with something in the DNA.

of sweet ham can "bite" like a

up behind the leading edge

Olive-loaf is relatively sta-
ble, but depending on the
thickness of the slice, the olive
or pimento can keep going,
leaving the top slices looking
like Swiss cheese.
With some orders, discre-
tion is the better part of valor.
Because of the price per pound
of some specialties such as
imported Prosciutto, it's better
to take the extra steps than
chance a dropped pass.
Head cheese, because of
the high gelatin content
should be as stable on the
scale as liverwurst or braun-
schwager, but because it is
ordered so infrequently more
research on it's flying charac-
teristics needs to done before
it can be added to the manu-

STAFF REPORT


Many people don't realize
that cats and dogs are as vul-
nerable to cancers as humans
and that proper veterinary
care can help ensure your
pets get the treatment they
need.
Pets develop the same
types of cancers as people.
Dogs, for example, are 35
times more likely to develop
skin cancer than humans,
four times more likely to get
breast cancer, eight times
more likely to succumb to
bone cancer, and twice as
likely to develop leukemia.
Insurance claims show lym-
phosarcoma and skin cancer,
as the most common pet can-
cers.
"Dog and cat owners
should take their pets in for
annual checkups," Dr. Carol
McConnell of Veterinary Pet
Insurance (VPI) suggests.
"Clinical signs of cancer
can present themselves in
dogs and cats at a very rapid
rate."
Cancer causes almost half
the deaths of pets more than
10 years old. Here are some
signs to watch for:
* A growing lump or a sore
that doesn't heal
* Discharge or bleeding
* Your pet is losing weight
despite eating normally


* Going more than a day or
two without eating
* Difficulty in chewing or
swallowing
* Any unusually bad smell
coming from your pet
* Tiring easily and unwill-
ingness to exercise.
If you're attuned to your
pet's needs and ordinary
behavior, you may be able to
spot changes that indicate
problems. However, in many
cases, the signs are difficult to
detect. Only a veterinarian
can diagnose cancer, so regu-
lar preventative examinations
are important.
If cancer is diagnosed in
your pet, there is hope. Due to
rapid advances in veterinary
medicine, early detection of
cancer in pets can be battled
with some success. Sop-
histicated treatments such as
chemotherapy, radiation,
immunotherapy, and surgical
procedures that were once
only performed on humans
are now available for pets,
too.
These procedures can be
expensive, but cancer treat-
ment costs can be affordable
with financial assistance for
pets in the form of medical
insurance. Medical plans
from VPI, for example, reim-
burse for the 'testing and
treatment of common can-
cers. Pet owners can also pur-


chase a special Cancer Rider
as an add-on to their base
policy, which increases the
cancer benefits, so they
receive about twice as much
in reimbursement after a
claim is filed. If added to a
policy before the pet is 3 years
of age, an annual puppy or
kitten lock-in rate for the rider
applies.
VPI reports that cancer
claims are the fourth-highest
type of claim that dog and cat
owners submit. To help in the
fight against pet cancer, VPI
encourages pet owners to
contribute to a special cause.
Pet owners can display their
support by purchasing a lim-
ited-edition Pet Cancer
Awareness dog collar a-
dorned with lavender rib-
bons; all profits from sales go
directly to the Animal Cancer
Foundation, a nonprofit orga-
nization dedicated to pet and
human cancer research. Visit
petinsurance.com/cancer to
order yours today or to
donate to the National Can-
ine Cancer Foundation
through its Pink Paw In-
itiative.
For additional information
on protecting your pet with
insurance, including cancer
protection, call (800) 944-
1751.
EDITOR'S .NOTE: November is
Pet Cancer Awareness Month.

PHOTO COURTESY OF ST. FRANCIS ANIMAL RESCUE
Lion is the St. Francis Cat of the Month for November. He is neutered and declawed, has
been microchipped and is up to date on all his shots. He would do best without other
cats, dogs or children, but he is friendly and handsome. He'd like a nice lania to lounge
around on. The reduced adoption fee in November for Lion is $30. St. Francis Animal
Rescue is a nonprofit, no-kill facility, located at 1925 South Tamiami Trail. Adoption hours
are Monday through Thursday, 1-5 p.m., and Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Call 492-6200.

Keeping it real with robotic pets this holiday season


Wednesday, Nov. 8, the Venice Sailing Sqauadron's annual rummage sale was alive with
people buying bargains in support off seeing-eye dog, Tiller. Tiller was at the rummage
sale with her temporary trainers from Sarasota, Leigh Anne and Tim Novak. Tiller, who is
18 months old, has two more months with the Novaks, then she goes to the Southwest
Guide Dog School for more training. The sale brought in hundreds of dollars to support
Tiller's training before she is assigned to a disabled U.S. veteran.

Jazz Up

Sales!


Sunday, November 12, 2006

W ith a Mardi Gras
theme and a focus on
forging new relation-
ships, 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
tolearn more about how they
can build upon each other's
success.


Page 2 D/E/N/C/V


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 pro-
mote 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 valu-
able door prize, including a
$1,000 drawing for one Realtor
who has registered at every
booth.
"This event will be a power-
ful networking opportunity for
both builders and real estate
agents, and will help them dis-
cover 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 togeth-
er in one place at one time.
Last year we had 20 building


The _A, Sun


companies exhibiting and
more than 350 agents attend-
ed. Those numbers could easi-
ly 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"
and plenty of fun while offer-
ing one of the area's most

Gulf Shores house


By KIM COOL
VENICE GONDOLIER
FEATURES EDITOR
A key advantage of buying
an older home on the island
of Venice is the size of the
lots. Recently listed with
Realtors Jan and Ralph
Conner is such a home in
Gulf Shores. The three-bed-
room, two-bath split plan
house features a great room,
central kitchen nd new
Corian counters in the
kitchen and master bath all
on an oversized lot.
Within walking distance to
the beach, the 1,684-square
foot (under air) house is
within a block of the larger
of Gulf Shores' two deeded
beach easements and just
one block from Service Club
Park.


Carefully maintained land-
scaping frames the home
and its 12-by 26-foot
inground kidney-shaped
swimming pool. Accenting
the yard is an especially
large native oak tree in the
front and additional trees,
including fruit trees, in the
rear and side yards.
Thelandscaping is main-"
tained with a well-fed sprin-
kler system. A carefully
planned combination of
fencing and shrubbery
around the house resulted in
a very private yard.
The living room is 16-by-
20 feet with sliding doors
leading to the pool cage and
lanai area. The view contin-
ues to the landscaped-yard.
The second bath serves as
a guest bath for the main liv-


ing area, as well as for the
two other bedrooms. The
third bedroom is equally
adaptable. Its location off
the pool area and adjacent to
the kitchen area allows it to
be used just as easily as a


isted with Conners


family room.
The three bedrooms mea-
sure 12-by-16, 13-by-16 and
14-by-13.
Flooring.is a combination
of ceramic tile and carpeting.
The roof is asphalt/fiberglass


shingles. Built in1970,.the
home has been carefully
maintained. Recent upgrades
include new hard surface
counters.
A paved double driveway
leads to the one-car


attached carport.
Located at 343 Shore Road,
the house has been listed at
$479,000. The house can be
seen by appointment. Call
the Conners at 941-416-0315
or 941-485-5421.
