Oregon mail voting system



secure, slashes costs


Tis the season


BY BOB ARDREN
PELICAN PRESS

As Sarasota County once
again prepares to possibly
spend millions of dollars on
new electronic voting
machines ones capable of
providing a paper trail it's
difficult to understand why
the highly successful vote-by-
mail system used in Oregon
isn't being examined for pos-
sible local use.
First tested in Oregon in
1987 and officially adopted
statewide for all elections in
1996, it's a simple, secure
method of voting that has
slashedcosts from $4.33 per
ballot cast in 1995 to the pre-
sent $1.24 per ballot in
Oregon.
In fact, the system is very
similar to the absentee sys-
tem used in Florida only
everyone in Oregon who
votes uses that easily recount-
able system.
Sarasota County presently
spends $22.64 per ballot cast,
averaged over the past two
years, according to total bal-
lots cast as reported on the
Internet and the election
supervisor's total budgets
reported by the county's fiscal


department.
That cost comes while
using nearly $4 million worth
of electronic voting machines
- each of which, of course,
needs to be located in a
polling place and supervised
by poll workers.
And a recently passed
voter mandate will require
Sarasota County to provide a
new voting system capable of
producing a paper trail that
could be used to do a hand
recount of each ballot cast.
Recently elected State Rep.
Keith Fitzgerald, D-Sarasota,
a professor of political sci-
ence at New College, said of
the Oregon system, "They
(Oregon voters) love the sys-
tem and have a high degree of
confidence in it. It's some-
thing we should'be looking at
as a model.
"Early voting definitely
changes the dynamics of
things and I bet it would

undercut much of the nega-
tive (campaigning)."
Results
Priscilla Southwell, dean of
social sciences and professor
of political science at the
University of Oregon, did a
five-year followup study of
the vote by mail system in her,
state.
Ballots are mailed to regis-
tered voters about three
weeks prior to election day
and cannot be sent to a for-
warding address. Voters fill
them out at their leisure,
place them in a "privacy"
envelope, which is signed for
comparison at the elections
office with the one on file, and
they are either mailed back or
physically returned to a des-
ignated site.
Southwell told the Pelican
Press that her own son's ballot
was challenged due to a
change in his official signa-
ture in a recent election and
he had to appear to verify his
ballot.
Her 2004 study explains:

Osprey to be awash in offices


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT .


The prospect of one- and
...twQ-story office buildings
-dotting both sides of U.S. 41
in Osprey continues to grow.
Along a stretch of about a
half-mile of the highway, one
office park is nearing comple-
tion and proposals for three
more are in the works. A fifth
is in the distant future.
Shells of the 20 one-story
units in Osprey Executive
Park, at Bay and Sarabay
avenues on the west side of
the highway, should be com-
pleted in early December.
Buyers of the condominium
offices are responsible for
completing the interiors of
their own offices in the 26,000
square feet of space. The park
will include a retention pond
and space for 107 vehicles.
A 4.1-acre parcel abutting
the park and to the south was
sold last August for $2.2 mil-
lion to Osprey Business Park
LLC. Its plans involve con-
struction of office units some-


time in 2007. Area realtors
expect it to be similar in
appearance.
South of that parcel, a
developer calling itself Medi-
terranean Business Park has
been advertising near-future
availability of units of 650 to
10,000 square feet of space.
A half-mile to the north,
also on the west side, at Bay
Acres Avenue, developers of a
1.9-acre site have proposed a
two-story building to be used
as a branch office of the Fifth
Third Bank and commercial
space for offices.
The Osprey Revitalization
Committee opposed a peti-
tion to rezone the property
last April. A proposed right-
turn lane from Bay Acres
Avenue south onto U.S. 41, in
the committee's opinion,
would increase traffic consid-
erably.
On the other side
On the east side of the
highway, between the Osprey
Animal Hospital and the
Arbors mobile home park, a


16,500 square-foot building
that would house 11 office
units was shown to the com-
mittee earlier this month.
Peter Dailey, a Bradenton
land useconsultant; plans to
develop the property. It has
been owned by the Carter
family, and would require
rezoning to light office-mixed
use.
Dailey told the committee
his firm has been involved in
zoning and development in
Osprey for 15 years. He cited
Hidden Bay and the First
American Bank as earlier pro-
jects in the community for
Dailey Design and the new
Osprey Executive Park.
Original plans for the 22-
acre campus of Our Lady of
Mount Carmel Catholic
Church set aside 3 acres for
possible- development of
office buildings. The site is
immediately south of the U.S.
Post Office on the highway,
and is owned by the Catholic

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
RICHARD HINE


The fish weren't taking the
bait at the kids fishing tourna-
ment on the Venice Fishing
Pier Friday, but it was a great
opportunity for parents and
grandparents to hook up with
their younger family mem-
bers for some post-holiday
bonding.
Tom Wendel from the
Venice Pier Anglers, one of
the cosponsors of the event,
said it was a little too windy
and cold for the fish, but
everyone still had a good
time.
"We wanted to promote an
event that not only taught
children fishing techniques,
but got the parents and chil-


dren together," he said.
It was the first time a tour-
nament of this type was held
strictly for children. Sharky's
On The Pier donated coffee,
juice, donuts and all of the
prizes.
There was no admission
charge. A donation was re-
quested from participants
and proceeds went to the
South County Family YMCA
reading program.
Raffles for tackle boxes
were held hourly, and Jordan
Rakowski of Venice won the
first raffle prize.
Jordan recently moved to
Venice from Texas with his
parents and brother, Lance.
Both boys, students at Taylor
Ranch Elementary School,
-were familiar with fishing

Prvden of \enice, %won the
second tackle box. He was
there with his dad and
brother because his great-
grandmother slept in.
"It's a good thing she isn't
here, cause the fish aren't
biting," he said.
Eight-year-,old Dilynn
Garman was trying her best
to catch a fish. Last Christ-
mas her brother, Barry, then
a soldier in Iraq, visited and
showed her how to handle a
fishing pole at the same spot
on the Venice pier. Barry is
now stationed in California.
Emma Davitt of Sheldon,
Vt., and her brother,
Brendan, got up at 7 a.m. for
the fishing tournament and
were trying their best to
catch a fish to take home to
their grandparents.


"This is the first time in
seven years that all six
grandchildren are together
for the holiday," Emma said.
Their grandparents are

ners Matthew and Michelle
Krumholz.
"This was a great free
place to spend 'Black Fri-
day,'" said Jim Wood of Ven-
ice, who brought his visiting
son-in-law and grandson.
"I just hope the wives
aren't out spending too
much money."

LITTLE KNOWN FAMOUS FLORIDIANS
BY JOE "FASTHORSE" HARRILL



















DANIEL CHAPPIE JAMES JR. became the country's first
African-American four-star general. Chappie grew up in
Pensacola and earned his wings in World War II as a
Tuskegee Airman and served as a fighter pilot in the
Korean and Vietnam wars. He received his fourth star in
1975 to become head of the North American Air Defense
system, one of only two men with the authority to launch
a nuclear attack Chappie and the president of the
United States. When the general died in 1976, he was one
of the most respected men in America. Love of country
took precedence over concern for race in James' life: "I
am, above everything else, an American."

For the first two-thirds of
the 20th century, the
Industrial Revolution dumped
soot into our skies.
The soot shielded sunlight
and resulted in what is called
Global Dimming. Florida's
sunlight today is 10 percent
less intense than it was when
Tropical Bob was a child.
Three decades ago, govern-
ments began restricting par-
ticulate pollution. Dimming
diminished. Global Warming
began in earnest.
As our soot shield came
down, temperatures went up.
No surprise then that last
week scientists heard an idea
to again dirty our atmosphere,
in the name of global cooling.

Before DisneyWorld, there
was another Florida. It
emerged with the help of the
Model-T Ford, which put
America on the road. And it
brought diversity to Florida
tourism.'
' The road trip often was on
U.S. 41, then the state's major
highway and described as "a


beautiful four-laned high-
way" in a 1965 brochure from
"Floridaland" in, Osprey. It
was a theme park that open-
ed in December 1964 on 50
acres west of the highway on
Blackburn Bay. At the time, it
was one of 56 roadside attrac-
tions in the state.
Norma Martin, a Realtor in
the Osprey area since 1946,
recalled Floridaland as "just
the most delightful place. It


was very popular with people
from all over the state,
although most of its patrons
came from Sarasota and Ven-
ice. But once Disney announ-
ced its plans for Orlando," she
remembered, "Floridaland
closed down, in 1973."
She still has a cancelled
check for $10,000 from the
transaction, dated Dec. 16,
1965. It was the down pay-
ment on the 50 acres and a


100-unit Holiday Inn fran-
chise. The hotel still operates,
as a Ramada Inn. The South-
bay subdivision occupies the
area in which Floridaland was
located.
The park advertised "10 big
attractions for one admis-
sion," which was $2.25 for
adults and $1.25 for children.
Its promoters advertised
Floridaland as "the greatest

Barnes: Customer service is her 'PRIDE' and joy


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF- WRITER


The cashier's office at
Venice City Hall is all about
customer service, which hap-
pens to be one of the key ele-
ments of the city's new PRIDE
program.
Customer Service Mana-
ger Marie Barnes feels re-
sponsible for consistently
good customer relations in
her position as supervisor of
the cashier's office staff and
operations.
"We are the front line in
representing the city to resi-
dents, contractors and local
business people," said
Barnes.
Barnes praises her staff of
customer relations special-
ists, saying that she is fortu-
nate to have an excellent
group that works well togeth-
er as a team.
"They really complement
one another," she said,
"because each of them has a
different strength upon
which to draw."
Marie's the key
The cashier's office is part,
of the city's finance depart-
ment, under Finance Director
Jeff Snyder and Deputy
Finance Director JoAnne
Lounsbury.
"Marie has high personal
standards when it comes to
dealing with people," said
Lounsbury, "and she is gifted


at communicating her phi-
losophy to her team. She's a
good teacher, but she also
believes and practices what
she's teaching that's what
makes it work."
Barnes tries to show her
employees how much they
are appreciated, and also
relieve office stress, by bring-
ing flowers, notes, cards, bal-
loons and humor into the
office as often as possible.
She also encourages her
staff to talk to her about their
ideas for changes or increas-
ing efficiency and job satis-
faction.
"I believe people take
pride in what they own,"
Barnes said. "So when some-
one comes to me with an
idea, I say if we can change it,
we will."
Anger management
However, things aren't
always pleasant and quiet in
the cashier's office, the collec-
tion point for all the city's fees
and billings even for park-
ing and traffic tickets and
water-service disconnec-
tions.
"People can be very angry
when they call or come in,"
she said, "and once in awhile
they take their anger out on
us by arguing, shouting,
threatening or swearing.
'After listening awhile,"
she said, "I can usually get
them to calm down long
enough to realize that we


can't reach a satisfactory solu-
tion to their problem unless.
we're able to talk reasonably
about their options."
Happy home
Born in Virginia, Barnes
attended junior high and
three years of high school in
Conway, S.C., near Myrtle
Beach. Just before her senior
year in 1960, her family
moved again, this time to
Tampa.
That's where she met
LaDieu Barnes. They were
wed shortly after her high
school graduation and have
been married 45 years.
Because LaDieu worked
for many years with the S&H
Green Stamp Company as' a
district sales manager, they
decided to live in Venice,
Marie said, "because it was
centrally located, it was near
the beach and it was just a
nice, friendly little town
where we could raise our
family.
LaDieu lost his job when
S&H moved out of Florida.
They tried working for a
youth camp ministry in New
Jersey, but he found the win-
ter weather "too cold for a
Florida native," so they made
their way back to Venice.
"For some reason," said
Marie, "I got the strongest
urge to put my application in
at city hall. I was thrilled to
discover that the finance
department had an opening

for an accounting clerk,
which was right in line with
my experience. It was clear to
me that the Lord had pre-
pared that situation for me."
Family matters
The Barnes family loves
spending time together. Son
Kevin lives in North Port and
works as a paramedic for the
DeSoto County fire depart-
ment. Daughter Michelle
Swafford is married and living
in Venice. Her husband,
George, is a firemedic with


the North Port fire depart-
ment, and they have a "pre-
cious, almost 4-year old"
daughter named Mallory.
Marie and LaDieu are both
very involved as members of
Venice Bible Church. They
also enjoy "alone time"
together as a couple, both at
home and out on the town.
Besides eating out at any
restaurant from Sarasota to
Port Charlotte, one of their
favorite activities for the past
45 years has been dancing the
jitterbug. Yes, the jitterbug. In


fact, they won several dance
contests when they were a lit-
tle younger.
"We'd like to dance more
often," said Marie, "but it is
getting increasingly difficult
to find places where the right
kind of music is played.
"We've just about decided

VOTING hon paelA

gories (80.9 percent) continue
to favor this type of election."
Interestingly, a majority of
respondents (62.28 percent of
1,037 registered voters) indi-
cated that didn't believe their
turnout has changed since
the adoption of vote by mail.
"However," the report con-
tinues, "almost one-third of
the respondents reported that
they voted more often with
vote by mail particularly
women, the disabled, home-
makers and those ages 26-
38."
The results also suggest
that "no partisan advantage is
likely to result as a conse-
quence of elevated turnout
under vote by mail."
Among the respondents,
80.9 percent favored the vote-
by-mail system. Of those, the
largest group favoring vote by
mail, at 86.7 percent, were the
18-25 age group, closely fol-
lowed by the 65-plus group at
86 percent. Females favored
the system by 83 percent and
males by 77.5 percent.
A total of 32.9 percent of
the females questioned said
they voted more often with
the vote by mail system and
only 4.3 percent said they
Voted less. Some 23.3 percent
of males answered that they
voted more often and 3.9 per-
cent less often with the vote
by mail.
'A majority of all subcate-
gories favor vote by mail over
the more traditional voting


place," the study concluded.

however, that
last week she brought up the
idea of creating a group of

help explore new systems for

"We're not trying to tell
Kathy what to do," Patterson
explained, "but it might be a

pointed out that the optical
scanner system used by
Manatee County "has a prob-
lem with overvotes -
although it looks like a great
improvement now.
"But why do we have to set-
tle for the least objectionable?"
Fitzgerald asked. "Why can't we
have the best system?"

Getting the most out of'sale'-ing


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

"Sale-ers," those folks so-
called because they. travel
from one garage or yard sale
to another from dawn to late
afternoon every weekend,
were out in force last
Saturday.
It's one.of the surest signs
that the winter tourist season
is in full swing.
Friday's Gondolier Sun
usually offered one clue to
how many sale-ers would be
out looking for bargains: The
classified section listed adver-
tisements of more than 130
garage sales in Osprey,
Nokomis, Englewood, Venice,
North Port and the Port
Charlotte and Punta Gorda


areas. Furniture, household
tools, toys, electrical appli-
ances, art, linens, shoes and
clothing, kitchen items and
golf equipment were among
the items for sale.
"Everything imaginable"
was the way the Pine Run
condominium community in
Osprey promoted its' sale.
Jimmie Coon, who chaired
the event, said, "I'm not cer-
tain how many items we
offered. But most of them
were sold after five hours,
when we closed up."
The first shoppers were
allowed in at 8:20 a.m., when
it became apparent to Coon
that the more than 40 people
in line were getting restless.
Working with residents of
Pine Run and neighboring


Blackburn PointWoods, Coon
had 25 men and women sta-
tioned at different tables to
sell the merchandise they had
collected for about six weeks.
Proceeds will go to the two
communities' women's club.
A couple in their mid-80s
from New Brunswick,
Canada, at the sale "for our
fourth or fifth year," sat in
their car while their 50-year-
old daughter did the shop-
ping.
"She does it now," they
said. "We're getting too old for
this stuff."
Still, 'they expected to visit
five more sales by the end of
the day. When they were
younger, they said, they cov-
ered 10 to 12 every Saturday,
starting from Laurel.

OUR W





Be generous, but be smart about it


There's never a shortage of people trying
to separate honest folks from their hard-
earned money without working for it, and
these scoundrels seem to multiply as the hol-
idays.. approach and everyone tends to feel
more charitable.
It's human nature to want to help those
less fortunate than ourselves, and it's pre-
cisely that tendency that can make us easy
marks whenever we're solicited to reach into
our wallets or write a check. This time of year,
when we're in a giving mood and flush with
our Christmas funds, we can be sitting ducks
if we're not careful.
And when you consider there are 11,600
charitable organizations and professional solici-
tors- registered with the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services, there are a
lot of people who want your money (At least
they won'tbe soliciting your vote.)
The vast majority of requests are on behalf


of legitimate charities, many of which collect
about half their annual donations between
Thanksgiving and NewYear's Day.
But sorting out the bad ones can be a chal-
lenge. Fortunately, the department has just
provided some valuable suggestions regard-'
ing making charitable donations.
Keep these guidelines in mind as we move
closer to the holidays:
Don't judge an organization based on an
impressive-sounding name. Find out what it
actually does.
Be wary of emotional appeals and orga-
nizations that have only vague plans for
spending the funds they collect.
Be wary of organizations that offer to send
a "runner" to pick up your donation.
Reputable charities are willing to wait for
your contribution.,
Do not donate over the phone. This
would seem obvious, but during a busy day


you could get caught off guard.
If you donate, always write a check to the
organization, never to an individual.
You have the right to ask for the organi-
zation's financial report and its federal tax ID
number. Among other things, this will tell
you how much it has raised; how much is
spent on administrative costs, including
salaries; and how much goes toward
fundraising. If it's not willing to provide you
with that information, that should be a red
flag. And you'll need the ID number for your
taxes.
Ask if the organization is registered with
the Division of Consumer Services. If not,
you may want to think twice if the organi-
zation is legitimate, it generally should be
registered in the state.
Ask what the organization does with
donations.
Ask it to send you written information


about its activities.
Ask what percentage of donations is
finding its way to those they were intended
to help.
One of the most helpful tools the depart-
ment provides is the Web site
www.800helpfla.com where you can click
on Gift Giver's Guide to see if an organization
is registered. Or you can get the same infor-
mation by calling the Consumer Hotline at
(800) 435-7352, or (800) 352-9832) for
Spanish-speaking consumers
We don't recommend specific charities or
organizations, but we understand most are
dependent on the generosity of our readers
to survive and help the less fortunate main-
tain a good quality of life year-round.
If you can afford to give, that is great. Just
remember that when it comes to donating
money, you should do your homework to be
on the safe side.


Water, water... nowhere TWENTY YEARS AGO...


BOB VEDDER
P lti .rl,


Okay, so I probably wrote
something negative about
Jimn Ley or the county., Lreqlly
didn't think they would get
back at me this way.
You may remember I
reported about "city". water
coming to our area of
Nokomis. The county had
said it would cost $6,000 each,
so we voted to do it and only a
few months afterward it had
jumped to $10,000. The coun-
ty found a way to get it down
to $8,000.
You may also remember
that I had wanted them to not
tear up my driveway but to
tunnel under it, as is so com-
mon today. They told me,
politely, "sorry, Charlie."
After all of that, guess how
they are putting in the lines -
tunneling. Hurray. How much
happier could I be?
They started the project on
Bayshore and worked their
way to the Bay Pointe area we
live in.
Just about three months
ago they tunneled a huge, 1-
foot diameter pipe onto my
property, I was the first one
on our street to see any of the
work. They were going to
serve the others from my
property.
While R&R, the contractor,
was tunneling to another spot
they hit FPL lines that sur-
prised them. Out went the
power and in came the joy of
remembering how to pro-
gram the microwave and the
other 10 clocks in the house.
FPL had to dig a big hole
next to the street to fix the
problem. They got it fixed but
the hole remained for a week
or so, during which time there
were some very hard rains
that caused the hole to cave in
and undermine the road. By
the time the hole got filled a
couple of feet of road had
broken up.
The second month saw the
big pipe still sticking out of
the yard, but they now tun-
neled from another spot
along the road on the other
side of my property, breaking
or messing up the sprinkler
heads. They went unfixed
until I complained to the
county and then they were
fixed immediately.
What a mess, because
while they were sort of fixed,
they needed to be reset as
they mostly watered roadway.
I accomplished that, but only
after having my roses go with-


out water for too long.
Consequently, I lost a couple
of them. (You may remember
my roses have enough prob-
lems from me trying to kill
them with Roundup.)
R & R pulled out of our area
because they had tunneled
these pipes with the ends
sticking up everywhere. The
county wanted them to get
some areas done and the
pipes buried. So they left our
area.
As we went into the third
month I found out that the
big pipe that was still there
with all the dirt and mess was
not even going to be U:se4.
was going to be capped, and
buried. It seems they found
they could not go the way
they had planned and had to
come at our area a different
way.
In the meantime, FPL put
in a new transformer for the
guy next door who is building
a castle with lookout towers
(actually, a two-story gazebo)
and all. In the process of run-
ning power from the trans-'
former they had to dig in my
lawn, and did a pretty shoddy
job of resodding. FPL came
out, saw that problem and the
road problem, and decided
not to return.
About three weeks ago, in
order to get ready to bury the
big pipe in my yard, they
added another 20 feet of pipe
in order to pump it out, which
they have done. The huge
pipe extension finally just got
removed yet the stub is still
above ground.
All of this time the road
hasn't been fixed because FPL
and R&R can't agree who is at
fault.
So, now at the end of the
third month R&R is back
working hard in our area with
prospects that there will be an
end.
But to add to the drama,
R&R had to come back and
dig where the sprinklers were,
so once again I had to redo
them.
Every house in our area
now has pipe going to it and
most are getting close to
being tested except one.
Remember the house that
got the big pipe and was the
first to get the mess? Well, that
house, mine, is the only one
not to have been piped yet.
R&R tells me that after the
crew gets lots of turkey in
them, next week they are
going to start working on
burying the monster pipe and
then tunneling from wherev-
er to my house.
It would be hard to dream
up a mess like this,
Let me say that the county,
R&R and even FPL have been
very nice and responsive. I
think they are all pros (well,
the jury is still out on FPL). We
were just unlucky, or it's the
Jim Ley retribution theory,
whichever you like best.

Shopping center has become a hangout


EDITOR:
Recently while I was trying to enter the island Publix, at
about 2:30 p.m., there was an after-school fight between some
VHS students right in front of the store. A rather large group of
students gathered to watch the fight.
The students were all over the place: on the sidewalks and in
the street and milling around cars. A couple of the store
patrons called the police, who turned up in relatively short
order and told the kids to get out, and at that time they pretty
much scattered.
It is not a very nice testament to VHS students for the com-
munity to see and have to be subjected to this kind of conduct
and lack of consideration for neighbors.
Most of our kids actually are pretty good, but there are some
elements out there that seem to find nothing better to do than
cause trouble, and do sq on a daily basis. This fight in front of
the store is not just an isolated incident.
I think it is high time the high school is accountable and that
administrators have a talk with parents and students and
demand that the students not use the Publix parking lot as
their exit. It is a private business parking lot.
I also think that until this is corrected that the Venice Police
Department should have officers placed in that parking lot,
especially after school, until this issue is handled.
These kids should be going home instead of roaming aim-
lessly around, causing trouble and fighting in the streets.


Bush will have to
work with Congress
EDITOR:

The mid-term voters have
spoken loud and clear.
Changes are wanted from our
government. A new agenda is
on the horizon that President
Bush will have to address.
He campaigned very stren-
uously the last week, but the
majority of the people have
had enough. The negative ads
were disgusting, shallow and
unfair to many office seekers.
Our country has been


outstanding and impossible
job, caught in the middle with
a looming civil war in Iraq.
The president and new
Congress will have to work
together and come up with a
sensible plan to end our
involvement in this endless
conflict.
The government has been
painting a rose-colored pic-
ture of the Iraq war, but our
people see on TV and in the
newspapers that conditions
are not getting better, only
worse.
Both parties must work
together and devise a plan
that's best for the service
men, our country and the
coalition. We must continue
to fight the terrorists, but not
necessarily in Iraq.

Maybe some votes shouldn't count


BY BUDDY MARTIN
GUEST COLUMNIST

When we're in a hurry and
not sure of our surroundings,
most of us will stop the clos-
est human and ask directions.
Which was the case last week
when we were hustling to a
last-minute lunch appoint-
ment in Sarasota.
Doing the American thing,
we beeped the horn at the
couple next to us at the stop
light and asked the driver if he
knew how to reach Fruitland.
"We're British and just vis-
iting," he said politely, "but
hold on a second."
His female passenger
began flipping through what
appeared to be a map book,
but before they could find it,
the light changed and we had
to motor on. At the next light,
they caught up, rolled down
their window, then told us to
go in front of them and take
the next right, then the next
left.
It reminded me how
friendly foreign visitors can
be and, most especially, the
Brits. I've also always enjoyed
their dry humor, sense of tra-
dition and willingness to
speak their mind.
We see more and more of
them these days.
"They come for a holiday
in Florida," said a woman
from an independent TV pro-
duction company in London,
"and they enjoy it so much -
especially the weather and
say, 'I'd like to live there.'"
The British population is
spreading throughout
Florida. Orlando and Fort
Lauderdale are quite popular,
but another one of their
favorite spots is Sarasota-
Clearwater because of the
oceanside setting and the cul'-
tural facilities. And the money
is good.
' The .exchange, xate of the.,.
pound-is-heavily in the favor.
of our British retirees, who
can live more comfortably


over here: $1.89 American to a
British pound.
But are they perhaps get-
ting a little homesick for some
fish and chips, Fleet Street
journalism or a shopping trip
to Harrods?
That's the question that
Charlotte Dawes wants
answered. She also wants to
know if a British family is
homesick enough to return to
England and take a trip down
reminiscence lane.
"We want them to see the
U.K. today," she said, "and to
take them back to their old
neighborhood and their old
haunts. It has changed quite a
bit. We especially are looking
for a family that has been
considering a return to,
England."
The good news is that
some of the downtrodden
English districts have been
spruced up. The bad news is
that home prices have sky-
rocketed, apparently even
more so than in the United
States.
Dawes is helping produce
a three-part series to be aired
on ITV Britain's largest free-
to-air TV network, and is
seeking a British family for
the project.
It's a chance for an English
family to enjoy all-expenses
paid trip back to their home-
land
If you are British and cur-
rently living full-time in
Florida, contact Charlotte at
Charlotte.Dawes@uhfever-
media.co.uk and copy us at
bmartin@sun-herald.com as

Currently, I am working on
a scam er, plan to con-
vince my boss that your
return to England needs

the perfect columnist to go

Skip it. The number of
undervotes in Congressional
District 13 is interesting from
a technological point of view.
My wife didn't get the screen
on the first pass but picked it
up on the review page. She
followed the instructions and
went back and fixed her vote.
I would like to have seen a
SKIP choice for each vote
item and programming that
would have required a choice
on each screen. The U.S.
Supreme Court found voter
literacy tests to be unconsti-
tutional many years ago. But
if a voter is too stupid to fol-
low the simple instructions, I
wonder how well informed
they are on the candidates
and issues to be decided. On
another disturbing note, it
appeared as if the election
official voted the booth next
to me when the voter walked
away without pushing the
flashing red VOTE button.
And I am sure that voter drove
to the polls blissfully unaware
of the world around him.
Your call. I've got our can-
didates' home phone num-
bers, and I'd like to call them
on Saturday afternoon
between 3:30 and 5 p.m. for
about the next two months to
let them know how sincere I
was about maybe I was going
to vote for them, but gee
whiz, it just didn't work out.
And then I'd like to call them
again the next day and tell
them the same thing to
remind them of, gee whiz, I
would have but, you know.
And maybe after about four
or five months, they might
find out that I'm bugging 'em.
It would be nice to get even
somehow because they're
really driving me up a wall.
A mess. Please, please,
clean up the ground on the
Venice island post office. It
looks like the pigs are still on
'VeikeJAXeifine and do a job at
night. -


Moving. Are you council
members in Venice thick
between the ears? Put Grove
Terrace on the outskirts of the
city Get the semi-rigs and all of
Babe's service trucks off of Main
Street And as for the hospital,
hire a cleaning crew, please.
Need a list. I think that
there should be a do-not-call
registry for voters. I must have
received 30 calls from
Jennings. And because I was
constantly disrupted while I
was sleeping, eating etc., I
certainly would not vote for
her. I just decided that any-
one that was calling that often
would never get my vote.
Simple solution. Stop the
campaign calls, period.
Giving up. Yes, 16t us have a
do-not-call registry for the
campaign calls. I received so
many this time, and they
were all negative. I would not
vote for anyone like that. I will
give up my land line if this
doesn't happen before the
next election. Please have a
registry for campaign calls.
Total recall. Kathy Dent's
attitude about her machines
is not acceptable. Where can I
find a recall petition to sign?
Review it. It's too bad peo-
ple had the opportunity to
vote and are now complain-
ing about the machines not
working right. Who is to
blame? You, if you didn't
review your vote. Oh, well.
Maybe next time you will. I
did.
Enough. Flip-flop. Flip-
flop. That's the sound of Gary
Norris. He sounds like a child
who doesn't get his way and
decides to take his toys and
leave. Well, this school board,
employee has had enough.
Let him go and take the
school board with you. We
can do better. Bye bye Gary.
Double standard. We
understand that irrigation is,
supposed to be two days ad
week,- either Tuesday or


Thursday, period. Just walk
down by the tennis courts. It
appears that the water irriga-
tion system on West Venice
Avenue in the median goes
through its complete cycle all
the way down West Venice
Avenue. And the city and the
county are telling us that we
can only use water on
Tuesday and Thursdays, yet
the government's watering on
Friday. Please, if we're not
allowed to it, let's not do it.
Roll it out. I know what
you're saying about New
Jersey and road construction.
I'm from Ohio and they roll
out asphalt like we're rolling
out carpeting. Evidently
somebody's padding some-
body's pocket. Give the con-
tract to one man and he can't
pull this crap.
Goodbye. If the current
superintendent does not wish
to live and work in Sarasota
County, let him go. Don't try
to keep him. Get someone
who wants to be in Sarasota
County to make our schools
better. And Citizens for Better
Schools, I wonder how many
people are actually parents of
children in the school system
and not just business owners
or retirees. I don't think their
voice should be heard as
loudly as parents of current
school students.
Interrupted. Please, no
more politicians calling and
disturbing our peace. I will
vote against anyone who calls
me and interrupts my dinner.
We were so pestered by calls,
we did not answer, and we
could not even speak with our
family or children or do any
business. It interrupted our
lives.
Show me. This is for
Offended: I'm glad he or she
thinks that the snowbirds
keep our economy going, but
you show me some verified,
black-and-white proof that
the snowbirds help my insur-


ance rates, which go up
because of their driving, or
my property taxes. How many
of those gazillion homes have
they really bought?
Missed it. After I finished
voting, I went to work. I hap-
pened to mention at work
that after I had finished vot-
ing I realized that I had not
voted in the Buchanan-
Jennings race, so I had to
backtrack through 18 pages
to find it. I'd missed it entirely
because it was situated too far
away from all the other things
to vote on. But I was surprised
to learn that all of my co-
workers had the same prob-
lem. It made us wonder how
many other people didn't go
back once they missed it.
Recounting won't solve the
problem, but revoting will.
Vice versa. We had trouble
voting. My wife punched in
Christine Jennings and
Buchanan's lights lit up, and
she had to go back and
change it. If you didn't change
it, then you voted unknow-
ingly for the wrong person.
Anyway, that's our complaint.
Hope something's done
about it.

To show how nice R&R
has been, since FPL and
R&R can't agree on who
should fix the street, the
foremen on the job have
said they are going to pay to
fix it themselves. I find that
incredible.
The interesting part of all
of this is, I don't even know if
we are going to hookup, as we
have a relatively new well and


a great reverse osmosis sys-
tem supplying us good water.

This example of cause and
effect is easy to understand. By
* contrast, patients often find it
baffling when the source of their
pain is located somewhere other than
I where the pain is felt. "Referred pain"
often arises when a nerve is
compressed or damaged at (or near) its
origin but the pain is felt in the area the
nerve serves. For instance, when a nerve
root is compressed by a herniated disc,
even though the damage occurs near
the spinal cord, the pain may occur in
the region served by the compressed
nerve, such as the leg. Chiropractors
are experts at tracing the origin of
referred pain.
P.S. The pain of sciatica is a common
example of referred pain.

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


Help plan for the next
decade
The public is invited to a
series of meetings to help
develop a project list for the
next phase of the 1-cent sales
tax for unincorporated Sara-
sota County.
Sarasota County officials
plan to place on the Nov. 6,
2007, ballot a referendum
asking residents to continue
the 1-cent sales tax from 2010
through 2019. At the same
time, voters will be asked to
approve a list of projects that
will be constructed with the
revenues generated from the
tax.
Since the surtax was.
extended for 10 years in 1997,
the 1-cent sales tax has pro-
vided funding for badly need-
ed roads, new libraries, new
parks and new fire stations,
among many other projects
throughout the county.
Those facilities came from
a project list created and
approved by residents. The
next list of projects will come
from the lists developed by
people during the upcoming
meetings.
All of the meetings begin at
6 p.m. on the following dates:


Nov. 28, Twin Lakes Park,
6700 Clark Road, Sarasota.
Nov. 30, Fruitville Public
Library, 100 Coburn Road,
Sarasota.
Dec. 5, Commission
chambers, Sarasota County
Administration Center, 1660
Ringling Blvd., Sarasota.
Dec. 7, North Sarasota
Public Library, 2801 Newtown
Blvd., Sarasota.
Residents who cannot
attend one of the public
meetings may offer sugges-
tions by completing a citizen
infrastructure survey located
at a neighborhood public
library or by visiting the coun-
ty's Web site at scgov.net/
yourpenny. The deadline to
submit project ideas is Dec. 8.
For more information
about the 1-cent sales tax
meetings, call the Sarasota
County Call Center at 861-
5000.
Landfill tours are back
Free public tours of
Sarasota County's landfill and
its hazardous waste and recy-
cling plants were so popular

tional tours have been sched-
uled in October, November

Indians salvage game in Englewood


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Steve Cavallaro can thank
Lemon Bay High basketball
coach Tom Catanzarite for
giving the youthful Venice
High boys basketball team
some much needed experi-
ence over the Thanksgiving
weekend.
Cavallaro's Indians played
two games in the Englewood
Optimist Showcase Friday
and Saturday at Lemon Bay
High.
After dropping a tough one
to DeSoto Friday, Venice
rebounded with a 39-36 victo-
ry over Belleview on Saturday.
"This was a good game for
us," said Cavallaro of the
Marion County school. "They
played good defense."
The game was a toss-up
with each team having
opportunities to win.
Belleview, a Class 4A
school, took a 27-25 lead into
the final quarter. From there,
it was a back-and-forth strug-
gle.
Senior captain Kyle Abney,
who didn't play in Friday's
game with a sprained ankle,
kept the Indians in the game
with his determined play. He
scored seven of his 11 points
in the fourth quarter. All 11 of
his points came in the second
half.
"Abney rolled his ankle in
the first quarter against
Mooney," Cavallaro said of his
season-opening win last
Tuesday. "He wanted to play
against DeSoto, but we gave
him one more day."
The score was tied at 34
with 2:15 remaining when
Trey Burton was fouled on a
drive. Burton made one of
two free, throws -- his first
point of the day to break
the tie.
Adam Reams missed two
free throws to give the Rattlers
hope. Guard O.J. Maxey sank
two from the stripe to give
Belleview a 36-35 advantage.
Venice worked patiently
for a good shot. Reams found
Burton with a neat pass.


Burton scored the layup to
make it 37-36 with 38 seconds
remaining.
Belleview had another
chance as center Voldez Scott
was fouled in close to the
hoop with 12 ticks left. Scott,
who had been 1l-for-6 at the
free throw line up to that
point, missed the front end of
,a one-and-one.
Kyle Jutras rebounded and
was fouled. He calmly sank
both to make it 39-36 with
seven seconds left.
Belleview, which lost to
Port Charlotte by three points
Friday, called time out with
three seconds. Maxey could
never get off a shot, thanks to
the Indian "D."
"We're starting to learn that
you have to work from start to
end," Cavallaro said. "We're
grunting it out. We didn't do it
in the preseason."
Venice steps into district
play Tuesday night at
Southeast.

Riverview thumps Lady Indians

SPORTS EDITOR


SUN PHOTOS BY CLAUDE LEWIS


The Venice High girls bas-
ketball team proved it could
hang with powerful Riverview
- for a while.
But six points in the sec-
ond half up until garbage
time just won't git 'r done.
Venice trailed by just six
points at halftime. Early in the
fourth quarter, the Lady
Indians were hopelessly
behind by 20 and were out of
it.
Riverview went on to post
a 57-43 victory on the second
day of the Sarasota Youth
Foundation Classic at the
Teepee.
Four games were played
on both Friday and Saturday.
Eight schools participated in
the event, each playing two

43-38 victory over Sarasota.
Riverview (3-1) ran out to
an early 14-4 lead over Venice
(2-3), but the Lady Indians
didn't roll over.
Sparked by an excellent
second quarter of play,
Venice came to within strik-
ing distance of the Lady
Rams.
Venice outscored River-
view 18-17 to trail 33-27 at
halftime. A bunch of Lady
Indians got into the flow.
Kaylee Ream had seven
points in the second quarter.
Natalie Gaudreau had four
points. Kim Pinkerton had
three points. Diana Mehserle
and Jen Thoennissen had two
points apiece.
But then came the third
quarter. Riverview came out
pressing. Venice turned the
ball over again and again and
again.
Riverview tallied the first
11 points of the third quarter
to go up 44-27. Center
Shannon Washington had
eight of her game-high 19
points during that run.
Venice didn't score until
there was 1:32 remaining in
the quarter when Ashley
Lane sank a technical free
throw. The "T" was on
Riverview head coach B.J.
Ivey.
There was more trouble
at the start of the fourth
quarter, as Riverview scored
the first six points to go up
50-30.
Venice went on to score 13
points in the fourth quarter,
but nearly all of those points
came in the final two minutes
when the game was already
decided.
Venice plays a district
game at Charlotte Wednesday
night.

fouled on a drive to the hoop.
Brown made both free throws
to make it 54-53.
Lee Camel missed two free
throws for DeSoto but
Sheldon Shine rebounded
and made two at the stripe to
stretch it out to 56-53.
Venice turned it over on its
next trip and that was pretty
much ball game. Shine sank
four more free throws in the
final seconds.
Shine finished 14-for-16 at
the line. As a team; DeSoto
was a hot 25-for-33 (76 per-
cent).
Venice was 15-for-23 at the
stripe.
DeSoto was on the verge of
blowing out Venice, building a
22-11 lead in the second
quarter. Freshman forward
Trey Burton scored five
straight points to draw the
Indians to within 22-16.
Venice hung around in the
third quarter, making the late
run possible.


The Indians had three
freshmen on the floor -
Burton, point guard Justin
Grant and forward Brandon
Wilkinson.
Burton played like a veter-
an, finishing with a team-high
19 points. Grant was the start-
ing point guard and finished
with eight points. Wilkinson
wa a spark off the bench.

to. the Florida Housing
Authority to keep the project

The project he was refer-

lease between VHA and co-
developers Picerne
Development. For $1 a year
Piceme would have owner-
ship of the buildings, while
VHA keeps ownership of the
land.
The redevelopment of
Grove Terrace Apartments
low-income housing com-
munity into a 144-unit com-
plex called Brookside Village
Apartments was going to cost
$11.3 million for phase one.
VHA won tax credits to pay
for development of the first
72 units and was going to
.apply in 2007 for tax credits to
pay for the 72 units in phase
two.

Parent power

STAFF REPORT

"Nothing about us, without
us," reads the flyer heralding a
new kind of political organi-
zation.
Sarasota PACTS (Parents
And Community Together
with Schools) is a fledgling
group of parent activists. The
group is spearheaded by
Susan Kenyon Jennings, who
began publishing Child
Connections magazine back
in April.
The flyer announcing its
launch event states its goal is
to increase parent power
through parent-driven and
child-focused services in
Sarasota County schools.
Jennings said she wants to
form a working partnership
with the school district "as we
move forward with the new
school board and the search
for a new superintendent."
Sarasota PACTS has two
kick-off events scheduled
next week. For more informa-
tion, call 400-5533.

Dalton made a motion to
sever ties completely
between VHA and Picerne,
but counsel recommended
against the motion, ostensi-
bly because they hadn't stud-
ied the master agreement for
withdrawal penalties prior to
the meeting.


In the end, it didn't matter.
Baker said he could tell
from commissioners' body
language they weren't inter-
ested.
"Without the full support
of the board, there was no
reason to pursue it (the deal).
They wanted to kill the pro-


ject," he concluded.
"In my world it's so hard to
get tax credits you don't ever
want to give them back."
He should know. Baker was
head of the Florida Housing
Finance Corp. and said he
completed a half dozen pro-
jects just like the one under


consideration.
"You are looking at at least
two years before another (tax
credit) opportunity like this
comes by, maybe longer," he
said.

The "Payment as low as" amount is an estimate of the first required minimum monthly payment for that purchase. The amount of subsequent minimum monthly payments will vary and will depend on various factors affect-
ing your account balance, such as (a) the timing and amount of your payments, (b) the interest rate on your account, and (c) whether any fees or other charges are added to your account. You are always free to pay more
than the minimum monthly payment. The more you pay each month, the quicker your balance will be repaid and the lower your total finance charges will be. As an example, if you pay only the minimum payment each
month and your account has no other activity or changes, it would take approximately 52 months to pay off a $500 non-promotional purchase and approximately 116 months to pay off a $1,000 non-promotional pur-
chase. However, if you paid double the minimum monthly payment each month, the $500 purchase would be paid off in approximately 21 months, and the $1,000 purchase in approximately 39 months. If you have any
questions about the amount of your minimum monthly payment or the repayment period, please call the customer service number on your billing statement.

Sport meets science, head on


A record-size hammerhead shark caught by a
sport fisherman is on display at Mote Marine
Laboratory & Aquarium.


Captains Bucky Dennis (left), Larry McLean (center) and Jimmy Willis (right) caught a
record-sized shark using only a rod and reel. Dennis is the current record holder for
the largest shark caught with a rod and reel.


Two opposing sides of nature are present
in Mote Aquarium's latest exhibit. A record-
size hammerhead shark, caught by Captain
Buckv Dennis of Port Charlotte, is now on
display at Mote Marine Laboratory &
Aquarium in Sarasota.
Taxidermists created a firberglass model
of the record catch. The model is the latest
addition to the shark wing at Mote.
The way this shark was obtained by Mote
is a prime example of sport and science
working together.
Sport
Dennis is a sport fisherman who has his
own charter service. While out fishing one
day, he spotted the large shark now on dis-
play at Mote. \Vith help from two friends,
Captains Jimmy \\rThis and Larry McLean,
Dennis caught the shark with a rod and reel.
Too large to pull into the boat as one
would when catching smaller fish, hauling it
into the boat proved as challenging as catch-
ing it.
"We towed it in to Placida harbor," Dennis
said.
This is how large catches are transported,
he said.
Eventually Dennis took the shark home
to wait for it to be measured by an agent of
the state of Florida to confirm that he had
caught a record-sized specimen.
The female shark was 14.5 feet long. It
weighed 1,280 pounds. Dennis had a record,
earning the "'All-Tackle World Record" title.
"It's like having a heavy-weight belt,"
Dennis said.
Larger hammerheads have been caught
by fishermen, but none larger has been
caught using a rod and reel alone, he said.
Titles can lead to endorsement money.
But first he had to do something about
the giant sea creature, which had been cov-
ering much of his driveway for more than 12
hours. For most of those 12 hours, the sun
had been shining.
"My wife wanted me to get rid of it,"
Dennis said. "You can't eat a fish of this size
because it's filled with mercury."
To solve his dilemma, Dennis offered his
prize catch to Mote.


Mote scientists welcomed the
opportunity to study such a speci-
men, although they do not encourage '
anyone to fish simply for the sake of ,
setting records.
Dr. Robert Hueter, the director of "
Mote's Center for. Shark Research,
took charge of the project, which pro-
xided an opportunity to learn more about
these giant creatures.
"We (Mote scientists) do not advocate the
catching of large fish and sharks for the pur-
pose of study," Huetter said. "We encourage
fishermen to tag and release their catches."
Though facing depletion at the global
level according to Hueurer. hammerhead
sharks are not on the endangered species
list. They often are seen in abundance in
spring when they are breeding. They surface
to feed on tarpon and stingrays.
Mote researchers learned the hammner-
head caughtby Dennis was carrying 55 pups
inside its belly
Sharks of this size often are pregnant,
Huetter said, but 55 pups is an unusually
high number of baby sharks for one ham-
merhead to carry during a pregnancy. The
norm is closer to 20-40.
Since the arrival of the shark at Mote, sci-
entists have been able to learn more about
the large shark. They began by trying to
determine its age. Scientists check the age
by slicing into the vertebrae and also by
weighing the liver.
"She is approximately 50 years old."
Hueter said.
From this specimen, Hueter and his team
hope to learn more about the pioductivity of
the species. They hope to educate people
more about these large animals and why
they are needed. Hueter said he hopes this
exhibit will enable people to learn to not be
so fearful of sharks.

Record keeping
Dennis will keeping on fishing. He said he
has seen even larger sharks out in the gulf.
"I'd like to catch one bigger so I can keep
my record," Dennis said.
If that happens, he is thinking of selling
his catch at auction on e-Bay.
Shipping might pose a problem.


While the shark looks menacing, Mote scientists hope people will view them with respect,
not fear.The female shark was 14.5 feet in length and weighed 1,280 pounds. It was also car-
rying 55 pups, deemed by experts to be an unusually large number.

LARRY ALLAN
COLUMNIST


I spotted the pack of six or
seven Mexican gray wolves
about 75 yards away. It was
late in the day in southern
Arizona. The wolves seemed
to be gathering to "discuss"
their hunting plans for that
dusky period between day-
light and night's blackness.
Mexican gray wolves are a
slightly smaller subspecies of
the gray wolf that inhabits
North America.
In 1991, Mexican grays
were declared the most
endangered wolf in the world.
Captive breeding programs
were established using cap-
tured wild Mexican grays.
Some of the resulting off-
spring of those breeding
efforts were released along
the Arizona-New Mexico bor-'
der in 1998. I wanted to cap-
ture photographs of this very
much-threatened subspe-
cies, whose restoration is
locally opposed. Wolves,
given the choice, will run
from humans. They want to
avoid confrontation, but I
wanted to get close enough to
capture some special images.
I use a type of stalking: slow,
patient, quiet, careful. Iwant-
ed to narrow the .distance
between us, but not get so
close that I spooked them. Of
course, I was using a telepho-
to lens to make my job easier.



(MURPHY


PHOTO COURTESY OF LARRY ALLAN
There are only between 35 and 50 Mexican gray wolves in the wild today and that's because some people care. But others
actively oppose their reintroduction into this subspecies'former natural habitat. I


Over time a period of at
least 45 minutes I captured
photos, and moved closer,
and closer to that wolf pack.
As a photographer of animals,
I long before had learned to
photograph whatever an ani-
mal would give me or allow.
Then Itry to shorten the dis-
tance for an, ,even. ,better,
photo. They were aware of
me, I knew. Various individu-
als kept looking in my direc-
tion, but there was no panic,

moment together as we
talked about what had just
transpired. Oh, if only we
could have gotten some pic-
tures up so close and so per-
sonal.
About 16 or 18 months later,
we had occasion to be in that
same area of Arizona again. As
luck would have it, we encoun-
tered that same small wolfpack.
It's estimated there are between
35 and 50 Mexican gray wolves
in the area now. I began to
repeat my slow and careful
approach, capturing pho-
tographs as I went Like before.
And then it happened.
Again I was surrounded,
sniffed and greeted with
enthusiasm by those wolves! I
ended up with nose prints on
my pants legs and on my
camera lens. And paw prints
on the front of my jacket (just
below my shoulders) where
one Mexican gray wolf actual-
ly stood up and put his fore
paws on me in an enthusias-
tic welcome. They remem-
bered me!
Naturally, I want to do
everything I can possibly do
to help preserve my Mexican
gray wolf friends. If you'd like
to help, look into Defenders
of Wildlife's wild wolf adop-
tion program. You'll find
information on theirWeb site.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I recently received a
hearing examination from an
audiologist which was paid
for by Medicare. Then I
noticed that some places
offer Free hearing tests. Why
do some providers charge for
their hearing tests and
others give them for free?
A. Hearing aid stores offer
their hearing tests for free
because they have to. Medicare
and other insurance companies
will not compensate them for
their testing because they are
not Audiologists. Only
Audiologists hold masters or
doctoral degrees, from
accredited universities. Hearing
aid salespeople, on the other
hand, have no specialized
training in the non-medical
treatment of hearing disorders.
Audiologists determine the
appropriate hearing aid for a
patient by performing a series
of special tests which hearing
aid salesmen cannot perform.
When people choose to
purchase a hearing aid from
someone which is not an
audiologist, they run the risk of
being dissatisfied with their
new hearing aids. Many times
it is difficult to determine who
is an Audiologist and who is
not. Before scheduling an
appointment for a hearing
examination, ask the
receptionist if the person
performing the testing is an
Audiologist. If the person is
not an Audiologist, the hearing
examination itself is of little
value and that's why it's free.
Call the Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. at

WELLBEING


Bioidentical and natural is the debate WELL-BEINGBRIEFS
Flu shot clinics


BY RICHARD HARKNESS
GUEST WRITER
Q: I understand that
bioidentical hormones are
identical to the hormones the
body produces. But aren't
they constructed synthetical-
ly? That is, they are not taken
from the human body (or is
there a ranch somewhere in
Montana where they are
extracted from humans?).
"Bioidentical" and the
word "natural" (as per
Suzanne Somers) makes it
sound like it's "safe" estrogen.
But if it's estrogen, it comes
with all the possible dangers
of excessive estrogen. It
seems to be all marketing
and driven by the power of
the words "bioidentical" and
"natural."
No one is saying what they
really are and the consumer is
misled. Maybe you can do
that. Thanks.
A: You have good and ample
company in your shaky view of
bioidentical hormones (and I like
your humor about it).
Here's a stab at clarifying the
picture using estrogen as an
example.
It may help to use the term
"laboratory-maniufactured"
instead of"synthetic."
The prescription product
Premarin consists of conjugated
estrogens extracted from equine
sources (pregnant mares). This
estrogen is not laboratory-man-
ufactured. It's "natural" but differ-
ent from the natural estrogen
produced in the human body.
The prescription products


Cenestin and Enjuvia are conju-
gated estrogens that are labora-
tory-manufactured from plants.
This estrogen is derived from
natural sources, but is different
from the natural estrogen pro-,
duced in the human body.
Enter "bioidentical" estrogens,
which also are laboratory-manu-
factured from plants (yams and
soy), a natural source. In this
case, though, the derived estro-
gen products are identical in
chemical structure to the estrb-
gen produced in the body.
For this reason, the body
'can't tell any difference between
its own estrogen and manufac-
tured bioidentical estrogen.
Your observation is correct:
Bioidentical estrogen products
would be expected to carry the
same risks (and benefits) as the
body's own estrogen.
Bioidentical estrogens include
estradiol, estrone, and estriol.
Bioidentical progesterone is
micronized in the laboratory to
increase its absorption.
As I noted in a prior column,
bioidentical hormones are avail-
able in numerous FDA-approved
prescription products. An
increasingly popular practice is
to have bioidentical hormones
custom-mixed at a compound-
ing pharmacy..This allows indi-
vidualized combinations, doses,
and preparations.

Surge in interest

The interest in bioidentical
hormones has surged since
2002. That's when the Women's
Health Initiative (WHI) trial was


shut down early when Prempro
was found to slightly boost the
risk of breast cancer, stroke, and
blood clots in postmenopausal
women.
Prempro is a combination of
estrogens and progestin (conju-
gated equine estrogens and
medroxyprogesterone acetate).
These hormones are not
bioidentical.
There are reasons to hope
that bioidentical hormones
might pose less risk, but there's
little evidence to support this
view currently. Research is need-
ed to compare the various hor-
mone products, doses and
forms of administration.
When hormone replacement
therapy is prescribed, bioidenti-
cal or not, the lowest effective
dose should be used and treat-
ment can be stopped once
menopausal symptoms subside.
Lastly, it's important to realize
that the body stops making its
own estrogen for a reason. To
everything there is a season.
Menopause is not a disorder, but
a natural phase of life.

tant pharmacist, natural medi-
cines specialist, and author of

tions will be used in the col-
umn.)

dren feel guilty because they
live different lives, full of too
many demands and too little
time in which to accomplish
them.
We are used to doing
things for our children, and
now are dependent on them
to do things for us. The longer
we need to have them help
us, the guiltier we feel.
My kids have got to think
among themselves, at least
once in a while, "Is mom
going to live forever? Just
because she writes that little
column, does she think that
gives her the right to live to be


100?"
I'm lucky, because my chil-
dren do let me know how
much they love me. They say,
"Mom, if you lived closer to us
we could see you more often."
But, you know what? Their
lanes are so fast they wouldn't
have any more time. So they
would still feel guilty.
How and why do they keep
it up? I dunno!
So, we feel guilty because
we can't do things for others,
and they keep doing things
for us.
The elder Eskimos used to


help by chewing the skins
with their teeth after they
could no longer hunt. When
their teeth were gone and
they could no longer con-
tribute, they were pushed out
on an ice floe to die a natural
death.
But that won't work now. If
we follow our children's
example, we would need a
new sealskin coat and hat
before we could be put on the
ice floe, and we would not be
happy if it did not have a
motor.
My son John was here a

guilt

week ago, and he saw the little
set of bicycle pedals I have for
my feeble exercises. It sits on
the floor in front of my chair. I
put my feet on the pedals and
pedal away, and that's my
exercise for the day.
So John said, "Why not put
little electricity generators on,
each of these pedal exercis-
ers, and have everyone that is
retired pedal for 30 minutes
each day? They could pedal
enough to solve the energy
crisis in our entire county,
and they wouldn't need to feel
guilty anymore."
Then my son Jim came to
visit. He had visited the trans-
portation museum in
Lucerne, Switzerland, and
learned that every Swiss train
has a cog system. When the
trains go downhill they gener-
ate electricity, to help get the
other trains uphill.
So Jim said, "We really
could hook all of these little
pedal devices up to the wiring
grid, and we really could help
others while we are going
downhill. Our guilt would fly
out the window as we pedal
away. Wouldn't that be great!"

Kayak tour of Arkansas' Big Woods finds some gorgeous scenery


BYTOM UHLENBROCK
GUEST WRITER


EDITOR'S NOTE: The first half
of this article was in the Nov. 19,
2006 issue, on the Travel page.
They were told that hunt-
ing probably would not be
curtailed, because most
hunters remain on the
periphery of the woods, not
venturing into the interior
where the woodpecker has
been spotted. And the bird
apparently hasn't been dis-
turbed by the area's hunting
heritage.
Sam Hamilton, regional
director of the Fish and
Wildlife Service, said the "hot
zone" was closed temporarily,
"because we were afraid that
20,000 birdwatchers would
descend on the Cache River
and love this birth to death."
"We wanted to protect that
bird," he added. "Now, the
question is, 'Can we begin to
re-open it, slowly?' You rarely
get a second chance like this,
and we want to make the
most of it."
Most of the locals who
showed up at the meetings
seemed interested in the
woodpecker. They wanted to
know how many had been
confirmed (one), what was its
sex (male), how long is its
lifespan (about 15 years) and
would scientists try to cap-
ture it (no).
One elderly gentleman
told the crowd: "I intend to
see one of these before too
much longer."
There are an estimated 80
million birdwatchers in


North America, and birding
was said to be a $37 billion
industry last year. Hamilton
and others noted that an
influx of birders could bring
much-needed revenue to
this economically depressed
region.
Said Hamilton: '"A lot of
these duck guides are starting
to think about how they can
guide folks into these areas,"
Because much of the Big.
Woods is accessible only by
boat, the long-term plan is to
set up observation platforms
where visitors can view areas
of the swamp that are poten-
tial ivory-bill habitat. The
search lately has focused on
roosting or nesting cavities,
and Sparling suggested a
novel way to show these to
the public.
"One of the plans is, if we
find a nest or roost hole, set
up a closed-circuit camera on
it," he said. "We wouldn't have
to reveal the location, and
millions of birders around the
world would have the oppor-
tunity to see it."
Sally Barnett is one entre-
preneur already hopping on
. the birding bandwagon. She
and her husband, Daniel,
own Wildlife Farms,, an
upscale lodge that offers
hunting and fishing on 1,750
acres of fields, forest, lakes
and river frontage. There's a

buzzing the flower baskets on
the deck overlooking the
lakes.
"We just had a couple here
from Staffordshire, England
they bring birding groups
over to the United States,"
Sally Barnett said. "They saw
tons of birds here; they were
tickled to death. We didn't
realize birding is that big a
business until last year.
"We tell people they may
not see the ivory bill, but
there's lots of other things to
see."
If the ivory-billed wood-
pecker was to make a last
stand in North America, Scott
Simon said the Big Woods of
Arkansas was the perfect
place.
"We think of it as the
Amazon of the United States,"
he said. 'A big, wild, impene-
trable woods."

endangered.
The conservancy began
purchasing land in the area,
then reselling those tracts to
national, state and local
agencies for management.
The White River National
Wildlife Refuge now has
160,000 acres, and the Cache
River 61,500. Add state and
local tracts, and land kept in
forest by duck clubs or private
landowners, and the total
preserved is 320,000 acres in
the Big Woods.
"This is one of the largest
blocks of bottomland
swamps in the United States,"

The Bookworm's 'season's


readings'for one and all


BY TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER
THE BOOKWORM


It's three days before
Christmas. You're checking
your list. Uh oh, you think.
Uncle Bob has been missed.
And Aunt Molly, cousin
Cindy and your new stepdad,
Dale. There's nothing
wrapped for them here, and
it's making you wail "What
can I get them that won't
make them miffed?"
May I make a suggestion?
Books make a great gift.
They're easy to wrap and
they're fun, there's no ques-
tions. So read on right now for
some Christmas suggestions:
Remember romantic
nights on the beach, holding
hands by moonlight, and
ballroom dancing to the
sounds of the stars? Put some
reminiscing under the tree
with "Miami Beach
Memories" by Joann Biondi
(Globe Pequot Press). There
are lots of nostalgic pictures
in this book, as well as oral
history memories from for-
mer residents, business own-
ers, and people who also
spent romantic nights on the
beach, holding hands.
Is there someone on your
list who loves to haul out pic-
tures of the grandkids every
time you're together? Then
wrap up a copy of
"Grandmothers" by Lauren
Cowen and Jayne Wexler
(Stewart, Tabori & Chang).
This gorgeous coffee-table
book has story after story
about the love of Grandmas
and their grandchildren, and
the pictures will melt your
heart. Give this book as a gift
- to a friend and to yourself.
Pet owners are easy to find
gifts for, and it's easy to give
"More Memoirs of a Papillon:
Diary of a Mad Dog" by
Genevieve, as told to Dennis
Fried, PhD. (Eiffel Press,
www.eiffelpress.nei). This
cute book, "written" by a wise
and witty (dare I say it?) dog is
charming and funny and per-
fect for putting beneath the
tree.


COURTESY GRAPHIC


For the man who still has
his old Little League glove,
"Baseball, Yesterday & Today"
by Josh Leventhal (Voyageur
Press) will be a big home run.
It's loaded with pictures, stats;
old advertisements and snap-
shots, for a grand-slam holi-
day present that will make
him long for spring training.
No clue what to get that
mystery lover on your list?
How about "A Christmas
Secret" by Anne Perry
(Ballentine). A vicarage, a
snowstorm, and danger...
what more could anyone
want under the tree this year?
For the nature lover, how
about putting a quietly reflec-
tive book beneath the tree?
"Why Buffalo Dance" by
Susan Chernak McElroy (New
World' Library) is -a 'good
choice. This book is small
enough to tuck in a backpack
for a long walk; wrap it up
with a birding guide for one of
the best gifts ever.


If you love to shop for
Christmas, why not read
about it, too? "Service and
Style: How the American
Department Store Fashioned
the Middle Class" by Jan
Whitaker (St. Martin's Press) is
a book filled with pictures,
history, and lots of memories.
If you recall going on special
trips downtown with your
mom and having lunch at the
fancy department store tea
room, you'll love this book.
. Feel better now? You know
what to find for last-minute
gifts when you're out of your
mind. So take this list, get the
car and head for the mall and
finish your shopping.
Season's Readings to all!

Schlichenmeye Terni has:- L)

years old and never goes any-
where without a book. She

Most Americans are lured into saving for retirement
with traditional qualified retirement plans, such as
IRA's and 401(k)s. They are convinced by financial
advisors to contribute pre-tax dollars to 401(k) plans
or place tax-deductible contributions into IRAs
because of the tax advantages during the
contribution and accumulation phases of their
retirement planning.

They seem to ignore the two most important phases
- when you withdraw your money for retirement
income, and when you pass away and transfer any
remaining funds to your heirs.

As a financial strategist and retirement specialist,
when I discover how much money my first-time
clients have accumulated in yet-to-be-taxed IRAs
and 401(k)s, I often ask them, "Are you planning
your retirement or Uncle Sam's?"

As many people approach retirement, they find


themselves with a free and clear home. So they no
longer have the mortgage interest expense deductions.
Their children have matured into adults, so they can no
longer claim them as dependents. They are no longer
contributing to tax deductible retirement plans.

Thus in retirement, they find themselves in as high or
higher tax bracket as they were during their earning
years even if they have lower income.

If you Were a farmer, would you rather save tax on the
purchase of your seed in the springtime and pay tax on
the sale of your harvest in the fall; or would you rather
pay tax on the seed and sell your harvest without any
tax on the gain? I would prefer tax-advantaged
harvests.

Learn how to remove money trapped in IRAs and
401(k)s especially if you don't need the income yet -
don't wait any longer thinking that postponing tax is
saving you money.


"The strategies and concepts taught in the seminars
are introduced in a revolutionary new book, Missed
Fortune 101 by Douglas R. Andrew, released by.
Time-Warner on January 3, 2005. Mr. Andrew's
current book Missed Fortune, has been on the
Barnes and Noble.com top-ten best seller list for
books about personal finance and investing."

A more affordable

There's good news for -

Of this, more than $9 bil-

A feast after the feast


BY LEAH ESKIN
GUESTWRITER

The turkey has been con-
quered. Likewise sweet pota-
to, cranberry, carrot, squash
and cornbread. Pie, even that
mysterious pink one, van-
quished. Whipped cream, ice
cream, sour cream, and cof-
fee cream downed.
Thanksgiving has been dis-
patched with dispatch.
Not that it was easy. There
were days of scrubbing and
scraping and slicing and
sauteing. The rambunctious
to distract and the table to set
and the gourd collection to
arrange to convey in its
knobby, wart-pocked way -
bounty.
There was the gravy/no
gravy confab and the extrane-
ous mashed potato conun-
drum and cornbread versus
white-bread stuffing con-
clave. (No one championed
whole wheat.) There was the
junior pumpkin-bread sous-
chef to supervise. The mis-
guided pine-cone-place-card
inspiration. Broom and dust-
pan duties to delegate.
Followed by the feast. It
was a group effort-everyone
in the family pulling his
weight, and then some in
the effort to undo what we
had just done. The big plates.
The medium plates. The
small plates. Then another
round.
Dishes. More dishes. And,
in the festive spirit of the day-
after-the-big-day, apple crisp
for breakfast and stuffing
sandwiches at lunch and


turkey potpie for dinner.
After which we swore we
would never eat again.
And didn't.
For a while.
The warm mug of tea and
bowl of broth, however virtu-
ous, eventually cool to
tedious. After a while, the
kitchen gleams clean again.
The fridge, relieved of left-
overs, smiles cheerful again.
Eating sounds, well, novel.
It's time to stage the come-
back. Not tea, not broth. An
actual meal. One prepared with
fresh ingredients-ingredients
reminiscent of neither turkey
nor squash. Nothing orange.
Nothing mild. Nothing New
World or Pilgrim-approved.
Something hearty and spicy
and flavorful.
We study the cookbook,
the one heavy with bold fla-
vors and pungent aromas. We
admire the views of salty salt
cod, garlic-soaked peppers,.
spice-wrinkled potatoes, red-
wine granita. Here are the
hearty appetites of Spain. The
very place Columbus fled.
Sounds promising.
We shop. We cook. We stew
up,Basque fishermen's stew-
hearty and spicy and flavor-
ful. Even before the guy con-
tingent flicks on the game, the
post-season looks like a win-
ner.

'Holidays on the Harbor' light up Charlotte County


PORT CHARLOTTE Land lubbers
and sea farers alike will delight in the
kaleidoscope of colorful light displays
that illuminate Charlotte Harbor dur-
ing the annual "Holidays on the Har-
bor" celebration.
Throughout December, Char-
lotte Harbor & the Gulf Islands
sparkles with nearly 30 events, street


and boat parades, concerts, art fairs
and outdoor nature excursions all
illuminated with thousands of holiday
lights. Area hotels offer special three-
day, two-night packages that can be
tailored to any interest, including golf,
harbor light cruises, wilderness adven-
tures and more than $200 worth of
shopping and dining coupons at Fish-


ermen's Village waterfront mall and
marina. Prices range from $253 to $608
per person, double occupancy.
One of the favorite attractions is the
harbor itself, decked out for the holi-
days. Fifty-foot Christmas trees, train
displays, flags, and elaborate holiday
vignettes are just some of the high-
lights of Charlotte Harbor and canal


cruises as residents try to outdo each
other with brilliant holiday light dis-
.plays along the waterways. Towering
sailboat masts drip with tiny lights and
reflect off the placid water to lend a
shimmer to the entire evening. King
Fisher Fleet's Christmas Canal Cruises
embark several times each evening
from Dec. 8-31 from the pier at Fisher-


men's Village Marina in the city of
Punta Gorda.
Not all the excitement takes place on
the water as favorite holiday perfor-
mances draw visitors inland nightly.
