Teachers cool toward retaining Norris


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


When North Port High
School teacher Amy Krukonis
got up to
speak before
the Sarasota t

School Board
on Nov. 21,
she knew she
was doing
something
that very few
of her peers Norris
are willing to
do, and that might get her in
hot water.
She told the school board
that the vast majority of
teachers want it to accept
Norris' resignation.


She handed over the
results of an unscientific sur-
vey of 137 instructional staff
throughout the county. She
asked instructional staff if
they wanted Norris to stay or
go, and for comments.
By Krukonis' count the.
results are overwhelming a
92-percent disapproval rat-
ing.
A week later she updated
her numbers to 380 for resig-
nation, 21 against.
None of the responses was
signed.
Why? Fear.
"People told me over and
over again, 'Don't attach my
name to it.' I have to protect
them," Krukonis said in an
interview.
"Teachers are afraid of


retaliation either losing
their job, being surplused,
moved to another school or
reprimanded in some way."
While it's highly unlikely
that scenario would play out
due to tenure and other pro-
tections, don't tell that to
school staff. Despite federal
laws that protect employees
from retaliation, Krukonis
insists its a distinct possibility.
She's been talked to before
for writing letters to the edi-
tor, she said.
She didn't lose her job, and
it didn't stop her from speak-
ing out.
She hadn't formed an
opinion regarding Norris'
possible retention, she said,
until she compiled the survey.
After listening to fellow teach-


ers, she now supports holding
him to his resignation.
Two cents
The responses to Krukonis'
survey were largely a mixture
of anger and innuendo.
"Let him go, no one forced
him out ... teachers will
become robots and have
many classes and programs
to take ... he doesn't want our
input ... make him go and
give us the opportunity to
select someone who will work
with us and make us want to
work with him."
A, large number likened
Norris' resignation to that of a
school boy who took his ball
home mid-game because he
was losing.
A number of staff said it


wasn't Norris' NeXt Gen plan
they objected to, but a per-
ception of authoritarian rule
and lack of teacher consulta-
tion that resulted in little buy-
in at the school level.
Under those circum-
stances, many said, the dam-
age had been done and it
would be difficult to work
with Norris in the future.
The responses stand in
sharp contrast to what others
in the community have come
to believe is the right thing to
do.
At the same Nov. 21 meet-
ing representatives of educa-
tion foundations, business
leaders and influential com-
munity members applauded
Norris' vision and encour-
aged him to stand up to


schools that just say no to
Landings initiatives.
To them, the push from
school ranks to pressure the
board into letting Norris go is
yet another example of a
school culture run amok.
"For most people, if you
said those things about your
boss, you'd be fired," said
school board president Frank
Kovach, after reading the sur-
vey responses.
Kovach and other board
members side with. Norris
when it comes to lighting a
fire under individual schools
to shift gears and get on
board with NeXt Generation
Learning initiatives. Norris

Jennings: 'This is not about me'

Regardless of whether the
state's test of Sarasota

finds no problems with its
electronic voting machines,

is vowing to conduct her own

Good morning, Gondolier

tests.
She said she's convinced
there were problems with the
machines and she wants to
"get to the bottom" of them-=
for the sake of voters every-
where.
"This is truly hot about
me," said Jennings, in an
interview with the Charlotte
Sun's editorial board Friday.
"This affects your children
and grandchildren. It is criti-
cal that the people who pass
the laws are the people we
wanted to elect."
According to the Florida
Department of State, Jen-
nings, a Democrat, lost the
District 13 congressional race
to Vern Buchanan, a Re-
publican, by 369 votes.
But Jennings has contested
the election, citing hundreds
of complaints her campaign
received from voters who had
difficulty getting the county's
touch-screen machines to
record their votes.
The election also saw an
unusually high number of
"undervotes" in Sarasota
County. There were 18,000
undervotes in the race, a rate
of nearly 15 percent.
The state worked Friday to
complete a test of four of the
1,500 machines used in the
Nov. 7 election. An earlier test
of four machines not used in
the election showed the
machines functioned proper-
ly.
However, Jennings said the
test didn't re-enact actual
Election Day conditions. For
the test, the machines were
placed vertically instead of
horizontally, the test voters
didn't include elderly people
and those running the test
were state staffers who have a
conflict of interest, Jennings
said.
'Dizzying importance'
With independent experts,
Jennings' campaign plans to
conduct a test of six machines
used in the actual election,
said Kendall Coffey, Jennings'
attorney. Six of the machines
would be ones used in
precincts chosen by Jennings'
campaign and the other six
from Buchanan's chosen
precincts.
That test would take about


two weeks, Coffey said.
Also, Jennings is seeking a
court order to compel the
manufacturer of the mach-
ines, Election Systems &
Software, to open the secret
software that runs the
machines to examination by
Jennings' experts.


AUDIT BACKS RESULTS
An audit of touch-screen
machines used in the Nov. 7
general election began at
6:30 a.m. Friday and contin-
ued until 7 p.m.The
machines were then taken off
line and the votes were tal-
lied in the same manner as
on Election Day. The idea was
to determine whether the
machines were accurate in
recording votes cast, not only
for the Jennings-Buchanan
race, but also for a host of
others.
Of the 117,973 total bal-
lots cast in the mock election,
there was a variance of only
two votes and they were
in another race, not the one
between Christine Jennings
and Vern Buchanan for the
District 13 congressional seat.
Jennings plans an inde-
pendent audit and has sued.
the manufacturer of the
machines seeking disclosure
of software codes that she
believes code reveal pro-'
gramming glitches.


Theoretically, a bug in the
software could cause a "dis-
connect" between the tempo-
rary memory of the vote
machine and its long-term
memory bank, said Coffey.
ES&S considers the soft-
ware a trade secret. If a judge
grants Jennings' demand for
disclosure, ES&S will likely
fight "tooth and nail" to
appeal, Coffey said.
Because Jennings has not
conceded the race, the judge
can issue emergency orders
expediting the resolution of
such appeals, Coffey said.
The Jennings campaign is
pushing for the case to be
resolved as soon as possible,
the attorney said.

With a background in retail
marketing, he has assisted his
wife in business in Venice for
26 years.
"My goals are to continue
the forward thinking of
MainStreet," Crisman said. "It
is vitally important we con-
tinue the viability for the mer-
chants and try to improve the
idea that MainStreet is a des-
tination to which people
come from all over the world.
"We have a vested interest
in Venice in its entirety," he
said. "People have the mis-
conception MainStreet is
interested in the people in the
immediate area, but that is
not true. I want to see all of
Venice, on and off the island,
succeed."
His intentions are to get
out and let everyone know
there is someone working for
them and Mainstreet, but he
needs some help.
"It is vitally important we
have volunteers to help in
answering the telephone and
taking messages in the office,"
he said. "I welcome inquiries at

DENNIS WARDLOW was mayor of Key West on April 23,
1982, when the U.S. Border Patrol set up a blockade on
highway U.S. 1 in front of Skeeter's Last Chance Saloon at
Florida City. The blockade denied residents of the Keys
free access to the Florida mainland. Wardlow immediately
issued a proclamation of secession and proclaimed the
"Conch Republic" an independent nation. After a rebel-
lion that lasted a few minutes, Prime Minister Wardlow
surrendered to the admiral in charge of the naval base at
Key West and demanded $1 billion in foreign aid. Thus
began the legend of the independent "Conch Republic,"
which continues to this day.

New law would limit admission to bars


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Owners of bars and night-
clubs may soon face stiff fines
for admitting minors into
their establishments.
On Tuesday, Sarasota
County commissioners un-
animously agreed to hold a
public hearing Dec. 19 to con-
sider an ordinance restricting
anyone younger than 21 from


entering any business in the
county serving alcohol after 9
p.m.
The commissioners debated
the draft language for the ordi-
nance during their board meet-
ing at the Robert L Anderson
Administration Center. Of par-
ticular interest was the section
determining fines.
In the draft, a first offense
would result in a $250 fine. A
second or subsequent offense


would raise the fine to $500.
Three commissioners -Jon
Thaxton, Paul Mercier and Joe
Barbetta felt that the fines
were too low. In a 3-2 vote
(Commissioners Nora Patte-
rson and Shannon Staub dis-
senting), those amounts were
raised to $500 for a first offense
and $1,000 for second and sub-
sequent offenses.
"The board asked for consis-
tency with similar ordinances


adopted by other local jurisdic-
tions in this area of the state,"
said James D. Schulz, criminal
justice policy coordinator in a
written preface to the draft ordi-
nance assembled by county
staff. "Manatee County and the
city of Sarasota have recently
passed such ordinances with
varied language. Therefore, an
ordinance for Sarasota County
must be considered on its own
merits."


Tropical Bob and Mrs. T.B.
visited Fisherman's Village in
Punta Gorda recently. T.B.
wanted to check out a fella
who calls himself Tropical
Santa.
The audacity!
Boats strung with festive
lights bobbed gently in a mari-
na. People sporting all man-
ner of tropical shirts and
dresses mirrored mannequins
behind shop windows. We
could indulge seafood, frozen
yogurt or candy.
Then T.B. heard the "ho, ho,
ho" from a microphone. That's
the signal Santa call, and
T.B. followed an old bearded
gent in a tropical shirt to a
throne where throngs gath-
ered around him to snap pho-
tographs.
Cool. Love the sunglasses,

Nokomis plan nears approval


Waiting by the water


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Nokomis' revitalization of
its U.S. 41 commercial corri-
dor has moved one step clos-
er to reality.
With just a few housekeep-
ing procedures required to
complete the plan, its
approval by the Sarasota
Board of County Commis-
sioners is anticipated by e ly
January.
The momentum provided
by the proposed develop-
ment of two hotels at Albee
Road and the highway has
spurred excitement about
area becoming a tourist desti-
nation and a walkable shop-
ping village. That stretch of
U.S. 41 today is composed of
loosely connected and #ut-
dated strip malls, abandoned
gas stations and nearby resi-
dential neighborhoods.
Unanimous endorsement
of the amended Nokomis
Revitalization Plan on Nov 16
by the county planning com-
mission leaves only revisions
in the zoning code to be com-
pleted before it goes to the
BOCC, according to Bruce
Dillon, chairman of the
Nokomis Center Revitali-
zation Advisory Comirttee.
He was praised by several
land planners at the Nov. 16


hearing for his leadership in
bringing the plan to its cur-
rent stage.
The highway in Nokomis
from Albee Road north to
Laurel Road will have a decid-
edly new look when the plan
is implemented. The result of
14 public meetings in 14
months among residents and
representatives of 39 neigh-
borhood and homeowner
associations, the amended
document reflects "new
thinking" since the initial
plan was approved in 2001,
according to John Ask, presi-
dent of the Nokomis Area
Civic Association.
Concern that relatively few
motorists on the highway
have had a reason to stop in
Nokomis was met with an
architectural mandate estab-
lished early in the process
that called for new buildings
to have an "old Florida"
appearance.
Clock towers, display win-
dows, parapets, arcades,
arches and awnings will be
evident in new buildings.
They will be required by a
new, more uniform architec-
tural style. Parking will be
restricted to space behind
buildings. Wider, buffers
extending to 41 will also be
required.
Dillon, who has insisted


that Nokomis become more
pedestrian- and bicycle-
friendly, said that the plan
includes covered long-term
bicycle parking.
Links
Buildings fronting on the
highway will be limited in
height to five stories (65 feet).
Parking will be allowed on the
first floors of office, residen-
tial and retail buildings. There
will be no parking garages.
Some buildings will mix com-
mercial space on lower floors
and residential units above.
The two proposed hotels
could create an attractive new
gateway to the Nokomis
beaches from 41. Finergy
Development LLC, which
purchased a 4.1-acre parcel
on the southwest corner of
Albee Road and the highway,
and Henry Rodriguez, who
owns the 4.9 acres opposite,
on the northwest corner, have
been working since last sum-
mer on ways to tie their prop-
erties together. Both are sites
of abandoned gas stations.
One thought is a bridge at
a third-story level that would
allow pedestrians and shop-
pers to cross between the two
properties on Albee Road.
Finergy's proposal calls for
a four-story condominium
hotel with about 75 rooms for


rent and 22 condominium
units. A retail plazawith sand-
wich and coffee shops, a
restaurant and retail stores
would occupy an additional


14,000 square feet facing U.S.
41.
Rodriguez anticipates a
100-room hotel and 41 con-
dominium units in the resi-


dential portion of his com-
plex. Stores, offices and a
"four-star" restaurant would
occupy 50,000 square feet of
commercial space.

Patek: enforcement by carrot and (drum) stick


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER


At a lean and muscular 6
feet, 4 inches tall an-d-2i
pounds, Venice Code En-
forcement Inspector John
Patek can be quite an intimi-
dating figure when standing
at the door of a suspected
code violator.
Some feel even further
intimidated by his New York
accent and manner, as he
addresses situations and peo-
ple very directly. Fortunately,
he is also quick to smile and
crack a joke, which usually
puts the person at ease.
"We're often responding to
a complaint from a neigh-
bor," said Patek, "who will
think we're-the 'hero.' But the
person they've complained
about doesn't usually see it
that way at all that first
contact with the accused can
be a little tense. They may not
think they've done anything
wrong, or they may be very
aware that they've violated
the rules but be upset about
being reported.
"I try to first explain the
problem and then let them
know how to resolve it.
Injecting a smile and some
humor in the conversation
can go a long way toward
putting the person in a more
cooperative mood."
Complaints include such-
things as overgrown vegeta-
tion, trash and debris, unli-
censed or dilapidated vehi-
cles, or excessive vehicles,
RVs and boats.
"Between May 1 and Oct.
31," said Patek, "we also
enforce the turtle lights ordi-
nance in the. beach areas,
making sure turtle hatchlings
are not attracted away from
the gulf by lights around
buildings and other beach
properties."
Most construction-type
projects require one or more
permits. which must be
obtained at city hall. Inspec-
tors who find nonpermitted
work being done have the
authority to issue a "stop
work" order on the spot.
Work being done by an
unlicensed contractor or
"handyman" is a criminal vio-
lation, which is turned over to
the police department for
investigation.
Enforcement process
Unfortunately, some viola-
tors choose not to cooperate
and comply with the city's
building and zoning codes.
For them, that first contact is



y IIlem n

S publishers of the Sun Herald Newspapers


just the beginning.
"The city goes out of its
way to encourage and obtain
compliance before taking
more drastic action," Patek
said. "We issue a warning
first, but if someone remains
noncompliant, we will initi-
ate further contacts with
them, either in person or in
writing, depending on the sit-
uation, before actually issu-
ing a citation.
"If they don't respond to
the citation," he continued,
"the next step is to take the
case before the Code
Enforcement Board, which
can levy a fine. Eventually, the
board can turn the case over
to the city attorney for collec-
tion or foreclosure on the
property. Ultimately, eviction
proceedings can be initiated
by court order, and noncom-
plying structures can even be
torn down."
Varied interests
On his own time, Patek is a
musician who plays saxo-
phone, keyboards, guitar and
percussion, and also arranges
and records music.
One of his current projects
is working on a CD with local
lyricist and vocalist Jaqueline
Resto. It already includes 14
songs they have written
together, from soft Latin
numbers to country-western
to middle-of-the-road rock.
Resto writes and sings the
lyrics, while Patek comes up
with appropriate tunes he
then orchestrates. He plays all
the instruments on individual
soundtracks recorded digital-
ly, and mixes them with her
vocal track for a finished
number.
"We were just doing it for
fun at first," said Patek, "but it
turned out so well that now it
has become a project we
want to complete and take to
the next step of producing for
distribution. We'll start with
the local market and' see
where we can go from there."
Patek is also into physical
fitness and health, combining
a "moderation" diet with a
strenuous workout routine at
home.
"My Total Gym regimen
saves me the time of having
to go elsewhere," he said. "It's
a lot of trouble to have to pay
for a membership some-
where, drive across town, per-
haps change clothes, etc. at a
commercial facility and


never be sure how crowded
it's going to be when you get
there.
Drum circles
An activity Patek helped
organize on two area beaches
is the weekly drum circle. At
Nokomis Beach on Saturday
nights, and at Siesta Beach on
Sunday nights one hour
before sunset in each case -
a variety of percussionists,
dancers and spectators gath-
er to enjoy spontaneous
rhythms and therapeutic
meditation in the natural sur-
roundings.
"A small group of us started
playing just for fun at Siesta
Beach in 1996," said Patek.
"But we immediately drew a
crowd, and people just spon-
taneously started dancing to
whatever beats we came up
with. Since then, the idea has
taken on a life of its own and
become very popular.
"It's become a real tourist
attraction, particularly for
Europeans. When the weath-
er's nice, we often see hun-
dreds of people come out to
the Sunday Siesta gathering
because the beach area there
is so big"
"Each gathering represents
people from all ages and
walks of life," he said.
"Literally, doctors, lawyers,
construction workers, police
officers and firefighters,
young people and retirees are
involved, and usually about
an even distribution of men
and women."

giving and Christmas Eve..
Postmaster Gale Childs
said the holiday rush has
begun.
"It's already started,"
Childs said. "As we get into
December it picks up quite a
bit."
She said that from Dec. 10
on, it will increase even more.
'And we're probably going
to hit 50,000 letters and cards
a day," Childs said.
In the past, the post office
has discouraged people from
mailing their cards in red or
green envelopes. Childs said
the post office prefers white
envelopes, but it's fine to use
colored envelopes.
"We've handled the red
and green envelopes, but we
really discourage the use of
red and green ink," said
Childs. "We prefer blue or
black ink (for addressing
envelopes because it) is easi-
est for the machines to read."
If the machine cannot read
a card or package label, it can
create a delay.
She said the post office
hasn't really seen a decrease
in cards mailed, as e-mailed
and other on-line products
have become more prevalent.
"We still have a big push
for cards," said Childs. "We
sold just over 2,000 stamps
(Tuesday)."
To deal with the holiday
rush, additional staff has
been hired to sort and deliver
the extra mail. Childs said the
post office is trying to keep
the stamp machine in the
lobby well stocked.
The best time to go to the
post office is during the daily
lulls about 10 a.m. or at 3 p.m.
The worse days tend to be
Saturday and Monday.
"Right after we open we
have a line, and after 3 there's
a big push, because we close
at 4," said Childs. "Not that we
will have any downtime the


closer it gets to Christmas."
Pack it right
To make sure holiday
packages arrive safely and
intact, the post office offers
several tips, including choos-
ing a box with enough room
for cushioning around the
contents. Place the cushion-
ing all around your items,
then close and shake the box.
If you hear things shifting,
add more newspaper, Styro-
foam or bubble wrap to pad
the box.
Once the box is packed,
tape the opening and rein-
force all seams with 2-inch-
wide tape. Use clear or brown
packaging tape, reinforced
packing tape or paper tape.
Don't use cord, string, or
twine they can get caught
in mail-processing equip-
ment.


SUN FILE GRAPHIC


And don't forget to use the
correct address. If you don't
know the ZIP code for
the package or letter you're
mailing, log onto http://zip4.
usps.com/zip4/welcome.jsp.
By entering the street address
and city, the site will find the
proper ZIP code for you.
And if you decide not
to brave the lines at the post


DID YOU FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS?
* Have the correct postage for oversize envelopes.
* Do not bundle cards with yarn, staples, paper clips, string, etc.
* If reusing a box, cover all UPC codes and old addresses.
* Insert a mailing address into the box being sent as well as on
the box itself.
- Mail cards, letters and packages out early.

QUICK TIPS FOR PACKING AND SHIPPING
* Don't cover your package in any sort of paper overwrap.
* If you must use paper overwrap of any kind, such as brown
paper, white paper, wrapping paper, etc., you must cover every
inch of the overwrap surface with an approved tape. Masking
tape is not acceptable. There are no exceptions to this rule. Also,
at some shipping or packaging shops, there may be a surcharge
if the staff has to provide tape for you to make your box is ship-
pable or has to take the time to tape up the box. This can be
time-consuming.
- Don't use string, masking, Scorch, Cellophane, electrical or duct
tape.
- Use a strong tape 2 inches or more in width, such as these
approved types of tape: pressure-sensitive plastic tape, nylon-
reinforced tape, water-activated tape, clear packing tape or
brown packing tape.
- UPS & FedEx won't deliver to a P.O. Box, APO or FPO, only to a
physical address.

JENNINGS from page lA


Siesta Key beach project can begin


agement, where teachers
have a large say in school
budgeting, staffing and pro-
grams, as one of the road-
blocks to implementing NGL.
The boot
The dichotomy between
school staff and community
sentiment surfaced in anoth-
er series of meetings this
week.
Parent advocates Sue
Memminger and Susan
Jennings held inaugural
meetings for a new parent
group they formed -
Sarasota Parents And
Community Together for
Schools. They're trying to
build a cadre of parents to
help influence school deci-
sions.
They held two meetings
last week: Tuesday evening at
the Jacaranda Library in
Venice andWednesday at
Argosy University in Sarasota.
Tuesday's crowd was a mix
of teachers, parents and com-
munity members, said
Memminger. She was sur-


prised that each of the break-
out groups identified school
site-based management as
troublesome.
Wednesday's crowd, nearly
all teachers, identified an
even greater need for site-
based management. .
The differing viewpoints
are bewildering.
It's a concern, she said.
Whether Norris stays or
goes will be decided in about
10 days. The school board is
scheduled to make a final
decision Dec. 12, following a
Dec. 5 workshop on the issue.
A majority of school board
members previously indicat-
ed an interest in keeping
Norris.
If school staff are unsuc-
cessful in giving their boss the
boot, a new hurdle will have
presented itself- learning to
play together again.
It will be a true test of char-
acter for both employees and
their boss.

"Like it or not, Christine
has been thrust into the role
of being a test case, a case that
has dizzying importance for
the rest of the country,"
Coffey said.
'No doubt'
An attorney for the
Buchanan campaign, Hayden
Dempsey, said Friday that test
results so far indicate ,no
machine problems.
"This shatters their entire
case," Dempsey said. "There
is absolutely no evidence to
support their false claim that
the machines malfunctioned
- in fact the test results
proved the opposite.
"It is time for Christine
Jennings to call off her
lawyers and the out-of-town
special interest groups and
withdraw this lawsuit," he
said.
Jennings said she has "no
doubt" that "something went
wrong with the election and
that she lost as a result.
She said her campaign
began receiving com-
plaints about the voting
machines the first day of
early voting.
She also cited the fact that
early voting results showed a
17.2 percent undervote rate
while absentee ballot voting


had only a 2.5 percent under-
vote. Early voting was done
on the electronic machines
and absentee ballots were
done on "mark sense" paper
ballots.
Also, she said, precincts on
Longboat Key, an affluent
community where voters can
be expected to be election
savvy, the undervote rate for
those who voted on electron-
ic machines was about 12
percent compared to 1.5 per-
cent on absentee ballots.
"I've lived in Sarasota since
1984, I've been a banker for 20
years, president of five organ-
izations, endorsed by groups
like Planned Parenthood,
Sierra Club and United Auto
Workers," Jennings said. "The
numbers they just don't
add up."
Jennings cited concerns
raised by the National Institute
of Standards' and Technology,
one of the U.S. government's
premier research centers.
In a draft report released
Friday, the institute conclud-
ed that widely used electronic
vote machines "cannot be
made secure," and called for
an independent way to check
their results.
"It's time for this debate
and this discussion," said
Jennings.

Florida authorities have
finally cleared the way for an
$11.8 million south Siesta Key
Beach restoration project by
closing the file on a Blind Pass
Road property owner's last-
minute challenge and issuing
a joint coastal permit for the
work to begin.
A U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers permit is still out-
standing, but should be in the
hands of Sarasota County
officials this week. It could
not be issued until the Florida
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection signed off on
the project.
"I talked with the Army
Corps this (Tuesday) morn-
ing," said Curtis Smith, the
county's project manager,
"and the permit reviewer has-
n't returned from a Thanks-
giving break. I'm trying to find
someone else in the agency's
office to take care of this."
The project was temporar-
ily halted while state authori-
ties considered a last-minute
petition by Nancy Burns
Stratton that challenged the
placement of an erosion con-
trol line and requested an
administrative hearing. It
could have delayed work for a
year.
On Nov. 16, Department
General Counsel Gregory M.


Munson denied Stratton's
petition, but gave her until
Nov. 24 to amend it. The
deadline was extended until 5
p.m. on Monday because
state offices were closed late
last week for the Thanks-
giving holiday.
Stratton has until Dec. 9 to
file a circuit court appeal, but
it probably wouldn't delay an
ambitious project that will
place approximately 877,000
cubic yards of offshore sand
along 2.1 miles of eroded
south Siesta Key shoreline.
"People will begin to see
activity by the second or third
week of December," Smith
said. "Our goal is.to make this
happen as quickly as possi-
ble. The contractor is eager to
get started. A couple of work
boats need to be moved into
place."
Stratton's last-minute peti-
tion to stop the issuance of a
state permit contended an
erosion control line estab-
lished by Sarasota County for
the state was in the wrong
location, according to a sur-
vey she had previously con-
ducted at her expense.
Work on south Siesta Key
Beach must be finished by
May 1, when next year's sea
turtle nesting season begins.
Sand dredging and spread-
ing is supposed to take
between three and four
months.

Traffic school broke, but on the rebound


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Manatee Community Col-
lege's popular traffic school
program is in the red, but that
doesn't have officials worried.
They've been working for
four months on a plan to
bring it back into the black,
say college officials.
The popular program
serves 4,000 people annually
through its DUI traffic school
program and another 6,000
through basic driver ed class-
es and other special programs
in Sarasota and Manatee
counties.
The Traffic School Institute
survives on a $908,000 annual
budget. It had a surplus of
$310,000 only two years ago.
That fell to $240,000 last year.
Now it's wiped out entirely.
"There currently exists a
slight negative fund balance,"
said MCC administrator Allan
Rogers, in a report to TSI's
advisory board.
More precisely, it's $5,000
in the red.
Intoxilized
A significant part of the
draw down on TSI's reserves,
note TSI administrators,
came from various moves
and furnishing new campus
offices. The moves are now
completed with up-to-date
technology, giving TSI a pres-
ence at all three of MCC's
campuses.
The bigger problem now is
building a sustainable rev-
enue stream to support the
program.
A changing business envi-
ronment is partly to blame for
lower revenues.
A tiff over law enforcement's
use of the Intoxilizer 5000 alco-
hol-detecting machine is pri-
marily to blame for a huge
dropoff in DUIs. A technical
glitch with the machine didn't
allow it to accurately detect
when enough air was blown
into its mouthpiece. The glitch
has since been fixed, according
(0to [h company that.niakes the
machine.
As many as 300 DUI cases
are on hold until the
machines get the OK and
stale attorneys start to pro-
ceed %idth charges. according
to TSI administrator Pat
McCabe.
To get their licenses back,
those charged must attend
DUI school.
hi recent years DUI classes
accounted for as much as 85
percent of TSI revenues.
Within the last year it
dropped at least 10 percent.
"We are anticipating the
number of DUIs will go up
once the intoxilizer issue is
settled. I have no reason to
believe they are arresting
fewer people," McCabe said.
Competition
TSI administrators also
point to intense competition
from a bevy of online driver
ed courses. Basic driver
improvement courses used to
account for 30 percent of its
budget. Now it's less than 10
percent of its annual $1 mil-
lion budget.
Two technical institutes
run by county school districts
- Sarasota County Technical
Institute and Manatee
Technical Institute now
offer the same basic driver ed
training.
"They didn't used to offer
driver ed classes," McCabe
said. "It has affected our class-
room numbers."
Balancing act
McCabe has been meeting
with top MCC officials over
the past four months to over-
haul the program.
"The program must bal-
ance by the end of the current
fiscal year, according to the
MCC administration," he
said.
TSI is totally fee driven,
and is not allowed to operate
in a deficit, he said

SIRI

"Then you'd be using tax-
payer money. The program
was not designed for that."
To bridge the budget gap,
McCabe made program
adjustments and streamlined
staff.
TSI released one basic dri-
ver ed instructor and two
part-time instructors, saving
$70,000.


Another problem is an
expensive lease agreement it
can't seem to shake. TSI pays
$90,000 a year in rent for its
Main Street office in
Sarasota. There are cheaper
locations, but they're out of
TSI's reach.
"There would be a sub-
stantial cost in breaking the
lease," McCabe said. "We


would be obligated to pay a
portion of the original con-
struction fee to set up the
office."
As a stopgap measure TSI
is subleasing a portion of its
office space to Pride
Integrated Services from West
Palm Beach to recoup
expenses.
It brought back a series of
motorcycle riding courses at
the MCCVenice campus, with
TSI looking to become a
third-party provider for


motorcycle license testing.
It's also looking at getting a
foot in the door of probation
services for teens in trouble.
It applied for a grant in
Manatee County to subsidize
work with teen courts. The
idea is to offer court-ordered
courses for those caught.
shoplifting in lieu of being
required to perform commu-
nity work.
"It has proved pretty effec-
tive," McCabe said, noting 35
percent of those caught


shoplifting are kids.
He's optimistic the pro-
gram cutbacks and new rev-
enue generating measures
will balance TSI's books by
the end of the fiscal year.
"We're here to stay. We've
got the infrastructure in place
and we're, (appropriately)
staffed."

OUR a




DCF is overwhelmed and underfunded


Florida's Department of Children and
Families is under fire again.
The latest incident to blacken the state
agency's reputation happened last month
when a judge went so far as to threaten to jail
the head of DCF if the agency cannot explain
why it consistently has failed to get mentally
ill jail inmates into psychiatric treatment as
required by law.
The agency is-also being criticized in Lee
County for failing to remove a young girl
from the custody of a stepfather who had
been accused of abusing her. Despite testi-
mony from the girl, DCF failed to act. The girl
was raped and murdered weeks later and the
stepfather has been charged.
Unfortunately, such problems are nothing
new for DCF, which was under a cloud a cou-
ple of years ago when reporters uncovered
poor record-keeping that led to the agency


actually losing track of some of its young
clients. That investigation was spurred by the
disappearance of a young girl whom DCF
was responsible for.
Now, a judge wants to know why the
agency cannot get treatment for mentally ill
jail inmates. That is a question that sheriffs
across Florida would probably liked
answered, too, as jail populations continue
to swell with homeless and the mentally ill.
Charlotte County Sheriff John Davenport
is overseeing a jail expansion that includes
up to 80 beds just for the mentally ill. In the
past year alone, Davenport said 344 inmates
were diagnosed with a mental disorder.
Things don't seem as bad in DeSoto
County, where Sheriff Vernon Keen said they
currently have one female juvenile with
some mental issues and probably have had
others who were not officially classified as


having mental problems.
According to the Associated Press, Pinellas
County Circuit Judge Crockett Farnell found
DCF in contempt in. October and ordered
fines. But Farnell went farther last month,
ordering DCF Secretary Lucy Hadi to appear
in court later this month to answer why she
shouldn't be held in contempt for failing to
abide by the law.
If Farnell finds Hadi in contempt of a
judge's order, she could face more than two
years in jail.
Public defenders have filed court motions
aimed at forcing DCF to treat inmates with
mental illnesses in Miami-Dade, Broward
and Hillsborough counties.
Hadi said the wave of mentally ill prison-
ers was like a "tsunami" that the department
couldn't have seen coming.
DCF spokesman AlZimmerman said DCF


will,ask lawmakers to move $5 million from
other agency services to pay for several new
beds at the state's three psychiatric hospitals
that treat felony defendants.
The state closed a fourth psychiatric hos-
pital G. Pierce Wood Memorial in Arcadia
- years ago despite predictions of this very
problem.
The number of mentally ill inmates wait-
ing longer than 15 days in local jails
increased from 7 percent to 72 percent of the
total number of commitments the past six
years, said Carlos Martinez, chief assistant
public defender in Miami.
We don't expect DCF Secretary Hadi. to
be jailed. But we hope the judge's actions
bring attention to continuing problems
with this important state agency that has
responsibility to help the state's most vul-
nerable citizens.


Should we or shouldn't we?
.. a d i, .: .**


BOB VEDDER
.i .- ,


The big question out there
right now is should we do a
revote on the Congressional
13 race officially won by Vern
Buchanan by 369 votes?
Many, especially Demo-
crtats and others w\ho voted,
for Christine Jennings, say
yes. Of course, the winner (so
far, anyway) says the race is
official and the experts
checked and certified the
results twice.
One thing is clear: The
machines did not work per-
fectly, at least in this race. The
design of the ballot certainly
was not good and on its own
caused people to skip the
race. Those, of course, appear
as undervotes.
Whywewouldhave one race
on two- pages is beyond me.
Shame on the election supervi-
sor. Heaven forbid, it isn't like
there isn't enough memory to
put each race on a page.
Incidentally, many of the
charter review board and
judge races had undervotes
as bad or worse than the race
in question.
Yet, there are a lot of con-
cerns about redoing the elec-
tion.
The "do over" in no way
would be similar to the origi-
nal that is, it wouldn't be
only the same people voting.
New people might vote for
all new reasons since the elec-
tion. Thousands would be in
town that weren't here at the
last election.
If only those who voted the
first time could vote this time.
conditions -still would not be
the same. People would be
going to the polls knowing the
outcome of all the national
races. They might well say,
since Democrats are going to
be in control, let's make sure
we send one up there.
Or there may be
Republicans who voted for
Christine but are mad that
there is a revote once a victor
had been certified and go
back to voting for Vern.
There likely would be a
much smaller turnout. Let's
say 20,000 people don't vote
who voted before they may
be gone or just fed up. Does
that not constitute an even
bigger "undervote" from the
number who originally voted
in this race? How can their
original votes not count.
While the equipment did
not work right, it is not clear
that a person could not, if
they found a mistake, get it
corrected.


The problem I heard time
and again was that some peo-
ple who voted in that race,
selected someone, but it did
not carry over to the summa-
ry page: We know this
because a lot of people have
testified they had to go back
and redo their vote to get it on
the summary page some-
times many times. Some even
needed a pole worker to make


it work.
Certainly one could say those
problems alone should be
enough to redo the race.
However, there are few cases, if
any, of people who could not get
their vote to count if they fol-
lowed the ballot and corrective
steps available to them.
'No doubt there are a lot of
people who, once they voted,
failed to look at the summary
page; they just saw a red light
and voted. They had the chance
to get their vote to count but did
not use care, either with follow-
ing the design or checking the
summary page. Sorry, that is
their fault.
How can we reverse a vote
when likely the biggest prob-
lem was people didn't check
the ballot closely, either skip-
ping over the race because of
the poor design or failing to
check, to make sure there
votes all registered?
No matter how many peo-
ple test this equipment, there
will never be answers to what
happened in every case, so
how will it ever be fair to have
a redo? No system can be
designed to correct careless-
ness.
There is only one instance
which I think would warrant a
revote, and that is if we found
the software was designed to
favor one candidate over anoth-
er. I have been surprised I
.haven't seen them looking at
that, which is really where the
emphasis ought to be.
I have not even mentioned
the huge number of people
.who did not want either can-
didate. Likely the number
would be bigger in Sarasota
County, since that is where
they are from.
The fact that Tramm
Hudson and Nancy Detert
were out of the running
affected some votes, mostly
in Sarasota County.
Of course, there is selfish
reason not to have another
election: I do not want even
one more phone call to my
"do not call" home, or one
more commercial about how
bad person each is, or some
sound bite about saving the
world when the person has
almost no impact on it and
only superficial information.
I asked Nancy Detert if she
thought there ought to be a
revote, and with her great
sense of humor (we missed
out not electing her) she said
she was in favor of a revote -
that is, if we would start at the
primary. *

Park plan offers lots to do


EDITOR:
Is there really nothing to do in Paradise? Hardly. The activi-
ties that can be enjoyed year-round are too numerous to list.
No, the "nothing-to-do" lament can be translated (loosely)
into: "We can't do what we want to do because they won't let
us," which teenagers have been moaning probably since they
no longer had to work the farms.
Those of us charged with the responsibility of protecting
themuntil they are responsible are constantly trying to distract
them from their discontent unsuccessfully, alas, because
what they really want is freedom from us.
This was ironically illustrated when (in response to an unre-
lated matter brought up during the audience participation
portion of the council meeting) some of our best-known and
most successful community leaders (who seem to support
more development at Tramonto Vista Park) recalled fondly
their own teenage adventures in the sea grapes at Venice
Beach, to the amusement of those of us who heard and under-
stood.
No, no amount of "family friendly" amenities will mitigate
this necessary process for long. Teenagers just want to hang
out with their friends. Wherever.
As for the rest of the family. playgrounds and picnic pavil-
ions, a boardwalk to the beach, resrooms and parking what
more is needed to meet the standard of "family friendly"?
This is an opportunity and a challenge. Let's get it right: Less
IS more.

Chappie James made
an impression

EDITOR:
After reading your tribute
to General Daniel "Chappie"
James Jr., the country's first
African-American four-star
general, in your Almanac sec-
tion, I couldn't resist recount-
ing my own personal experi-
ences with the remarkable
James family.
My first permanent assign-
ment in 1953 after complet-
ing flight training was to an
Air Defense Command F-94


fighter interceptor squadron
on the eastern seaboard. Our
alert duty schedule was 24/7,
requiring periods of long,
boring sequestered time
interrupted by an occasional
launch.
Being a newly commis-
sioned second lieutenant,
and low man on the prover-
bial "totem pole," my addi-
tional duty was to make sure
the flight shack snack bar &
grill was well supplied with
fast food (outsourcing was
unknown at that time).
After my initial introduc-


tion to my new squad-
ron commander, then-Maj.
James, I never entertained any
ideas of shirking my duties.
He was an imposing 6 feet, 4
inches in height, about 250
pounds, with a black .mus-
tache, fighter pilot swagger
and charisma to melt down
the boldest of "shave tail" sec-
ond lieutenants.
Many years later, in 1969, I
was sent to Vietnam and
eventually assumed com-
mand of eight small Air Force
detachments. When a new
lieutenant pilot was assigned
to my detachment, I swear I
started to have flashbacks.
He was 6 feet, 4 inches, was
African-American with a dis-
tinctive black mustache and his
name was Lt. Daniel James 1I.
The younger Daniel James
recently retired in Wash-
ington, D.C., as commander
of the Air National Guard, as a
three-star general.

Smoke-Out sneaked by
Editor:
Last week the Great
American Smoke-Out came
and went without any public-
ity.
It used to be good conver-
sation -people preparing for
the upcoming smoke-out. I
actually knew people who
really did stop smoking for 24
hours, and a few who contin-
ued to stay off cigarettes.
This year was different. I


did not see any advertising
anywhere. Consequently,
there was no discussion any-
where. I hope people have not
given up on the idea of: "Stop
Smoking, It's bad for your
health."
As a throat cancer survivor,
I wish I had stopped-smoking
sooner.

Walls can have
different purposes

EDITOR:
The BerlinWall was to keep
people in and the border wall
is to keep undesirables out. A
nation is only as strong as the
character of its people, I say.
Unity is strength, and I see no
unity.
Immigrants send $16 bil-
lion yes, billion back to
Mexico yearly, which is
its second-highest revenue
source.
Mexicans are taught from
the cradle that California,
New Mexico, Arizona and
Texas are their lands, and this
is one reason they flock across
our borders not bothering to
learn English. Of course they
are winning, since every
demand is to make life simple
for them: Spanish TV news-
papers, etc.
The Mexican government
encourages mass migration
simply not to have the
responsibility of the poor

Hard heads, but not that hard


STEPHEN BAUMANN
GUEST COLUMNIST

Hoo-boy, Monday was a
brutal day at work. Just brutal.
I got in a half-hour early,
anticipating the crunch.
First order of business: Log
on to the computer.
Bring up the files,
rearrange the desktop, trash
the old stories, check the e-
mails, jot down notes about
assignments.
Sharpen pencils. Three of
them today.
Take phone calls, rear-
range the top of the desk,
shuffle papers, then shift the
stack from left to right.
Flip through the list of
story ideas, restack. Check
calendar, take more phone
calls. All set.
Now, the serious work
begins.
Bring up the Internet.
Google. Yahoo.
First stop: Amazon.
Josh probably would like
some music. Genre: pop, folk,
country? Tough one here. Got
to admit I don't really know
what he likes, so I'll just do as
I normally do: Get him some-
thing I like. And I can always
copy the CD at home after
Christmas.
I call that a win-win situa-
tion.
A couple more phone calls,
one from the boss. Look
sharp, sound engaged. Snap
t!o it. '".. .. -... *
! Over to the book section.
Uncle Art's always interested
'in a good read. I think so,.at
least. I really have no id .a
what he does with all those
books I buy him every
Christmas. He has plenty of.
bookshelf space; another one
or two will help fill it. And if he
actually reads one, and likes
it, he'll ship it back to us later.
Again, win-win.


Lunch time. Better just eat
my leftovers at the desk today.
Too busy.
Speaking of which, maybe
it's time to visit Starbucks. I
love Starbucks. Everyone
loves Starbucks. And they're
everywhere.
Sounds like the perfect gift:
Starbucks gift certificates all
around. And they do great
music, too! Memo to self:
revisit the Josh Amazon
music-gifting idea.
Boy, would I love an
espresso machine. Could I get
one for Eli, then have him
leave it with me after
Christmas because he can't
drag it home? Sounds too
much like lose-win.
Another call from the boss.
What's with this guy? Doesn't
he have any work of his own?
Kristin's been talking about
a flat-screen TV And since
she's my wife, it's clearly
another win-win.
Best Buy, Sears, Circuit
City. This is tough on the fin-
gertips and eyes, but work is
work and that's why I make
the big bucks, etc.
LCD? Plasma? Summon
the brain power. Tough deci-
sions to make.
Time for an afternoon cof-
fee break. Wish somebody
brought some Starbucks.
There's an even-better local
coffee shop across the street,
but I really don't have time to
stray too far from my desk
today.
How about the parents and
grandchildren?
Gift certificates for all.
Restaurants-maybe Ap-
plebees or Olive Garden for
Mom and Dad. They like to go
out. And no Starbucks; they
don't go for that strong stuff.
I never know what to get
the grandkids, so gift cards
will do. Sto ,pff at iTunes.
Bac ; fill the cart
at Toys "R" Us. I love PayPal.
Late now. Re-order the
stack of papers on the desk. A
few notes in the date book. A
call to the main office, and I'm
out of here.
Man, I hate Black Monday.
But tomorrow's another day.

No helmets. I picked up my
granddaughter at Venice
Elementary Friday and a gen-
tleman in his late 30s or so
pulled in in front of me on a
moped or scooter and went
through the line and picked
up a young girl who was
between 8 and 10 years old.
She got on the back. There's a
policeman standing on the
sidewalk in full uniform and a
teacher directing traffic, and
they rode right by them.
Neither one of them had a
helmet on. I thought it was a
law in Florida that if some-
body under 16 rode on any
kind of bike, they needed a
helmet. That's pretty bad on
school property. If the girl
would have hit the curb or
something, then they'd end
up suing the school.
To the outskirts. About
Grove Terrace: Why put it
downtown? Why put it near
Venice Avenue? Put it on the
outskirts. And to have to have
retention ponds? What's that
for? Waste treatment? It is
time Venice stopped building
golf courses and built a state-
of-the-art waste treatment
plant so you don't have to pol-
lute the gulf. I just saw the
television and this is the 100th
dead turtle on the southwest
coast, three of them today.
This is a shame. Quit dump-
ing your waste into the gulf.
How would you like to swim
in a septic tank and try to sur-
vive? Let's quit wasting
money on silly little things.
And all of you that were elect-
ed, let's do something about
preserving so we can have
something in the future.
What about issues? I think
a do-not-call registry for cam-
paign calls would be mar-
velous. We will never have any
type of civil discourse or polit-
ical life until the scumbags
who call up on the phone and
bad-mouth their opponents
find out that most of us do not
want to hear from them. In
my case, every time I got a
phone call, if there was a ring
and there was a dead sound
or a click, I knew it was a polit-
ical call, I just hung up. I want
to hear about the issues, not
slanderous allegations that I
have no way of knowing are
true or not.


No help. There should be a
do-not-call registry for cam-
paign calls and it should be
just the same as the regular
national do-not-call registry.
We got more calls this year
and it was not helpful at all. It
was very annoying and it was
totally getting out of hand.
Questions. The hasty $4.5
million purchase of the
Sarasota County's current
touch-screen voting mach-
ines raises many questions,
among which are: What kind
of sales pressure was there by
voting machine business
interests? Were these mach-
ines purchased through com-
petitive bids? If questionable
purchasing strategies were
used in the purchase of the
current machines, are we
going to be stampeded in the
same kind of panic buying
with the next generation of
machines?
Complaint. I and my
neighbors have made com-
plaints to the Gondolier Sun
concerning your paper deliv-
ery in the boxes. This gentle-
man comes between mid-
night and 3:30 a.m. His car
has no muffler, the radio is
blaring and you can hear him
2 miles down the road when
he's coming. I have requested
from the publisher to stop
this kind of behavior, but this
has been going on for months
and months and nothing has
been done. So I'm calling you
now.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Your com-
plaint has been passed on to our
circulation manager.
Missed it. Just wanted to
say I did have trouble voting
for the District 13 race. I went
through my whole voting
process. I'm familiar with the
voting process. I was pre-
pared ahead and got through
everything. Checked myn
summary at the end and
noticed that my vote hadn't
been recorded. Either I
skipped a page or missed it or
didn't see it. So I had to go
back to that page and vote. I
was voting Republican for
Buchanan, not that that
makes a difference, but any-
way, it didn't work for me
either. I did have to go back
and put that vote in.
Out of order. I'm appealing

to the publisher, Bob Vedder
and the editor, Bob Mudge,
please, when it's so close to
Veteran's Day and we have
thousands of our young men
fighting for our country, I
open my package of the
Gondolier Sun this morning
and see "Police hoping for
leads in woman's death,"
while on page 15 there's quite
a nice article in color of our
veterans being honored. Why
in God's name wouldn't you
put these wonderful people
on the front page and the
police hoping for leads in
death somewhere in the
back? I'm so tired of nasty
comments and death all
around us. Please, let's honor
the veterans.
EDITOR'S NOTE: There was a
Veteran's Day photo immediately
below the story you mention, and
five more on Page 15.
Hands off. This is in refer-
,ence to the gun range in
Venice for the police depart-
ment. Leave it alone.
Unconnected. You are hav-
ing an opinion contest where
the grand prize is $500 cash
and three other nice prizes. I
do have an opinion of the
newspaper, but whether it
would win or not, I cannot
submit it. I don't have a com-
puter, and that is the only way
to enter. It is disgusting that
you are handling it this way.
Every person who pays for
and receives your paper
should be eligible. This just
adds one more to the list of


complaints that would be
included if I could enter my
opinion. Maybe it's best that it
is not possible. You don't want
to hear it anyway. You proba-
bly only want to hear from
those who spend thousands
of dollars every week on
advertising, leaving a very
limited amount of space for
news.. You could call it an
advertising paper instead of a
newspaper. I hope you allow
this to be printed.
No sense. I'm calling about
moving the Venice Police
Department gun,, range. I've
seen stupid things done in
this town before, but moving
a police gun range because
people who moved to that
neighborhood wouldn't make
any sense.

GONDOLIER ON SUNDAY

If you \
place your
hands on your hips at exactly
the same spots on each side and
one hand is higher than the other,
you may have a tilted pelvis. This is
important to. note because the pelvis
and lower back are designed to work on
a level plane. When the pelvis is tilted,
unequal forces are exerted on ligaments,
tendons, and joints of the lower back that
can lead to muscular imbalance and pain.
One way the chiropractor checks for a
tilted pelvis is to measure the legs for
inequality. When one leg is longer than
the other, it is like walking with a shoe
on only one foot. Leg-length discrepancy
must be addressed as the underlying
problem.


P.S. If you are a man who regularly
carries a fat wallet in your back pocket,
you may be unknowingly contributing to
postural imbalance every time you sit
down.

Lady Indians struggle for consistency


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Eight games into the sea-
son, and the Venice High girls
varsity basketball team is still
looking for consistency.,
The Lady Indians'stayed
on the rollercoaster Friday
night, spiraling down to a 45-
33 loss at Southeast.
Venice fell to 4-4 overall
and 2-1 in Class 5A District
12. The Lady Seminoles
improved to 5-2 and 3-0.
Southeast was vulnerable
Friday night with center
Rassandra Simmons out fol-
lowing an automobile acci-
dent.
The Lady Seminoles had a
couple of other girls pick up
the slack.
Venice also helped by not
having one of its better
nights.
"We're not playing as a
team," said Venice second
year coach George "The
Animal" Stritz. "We haven't


found it. We're not executing
on both ends of the court.
Two girls will show up to play.
We need all five every night."
Venice's top plater -
Natalie Gaudreau had a
frustrating night. Not all of
her shots were falling and
she was the recipient of
some questionable calls.
Gaudreau fouled out late in
the game, finishing with 10
points.
It was Gaudreau who led a
late charge that got Venice
back in the game.
The Lady Indians looked
out of it, trailing 26-13 at half-
time.
Things stayed status quo
through the third quarter and
early in the fourth, but Venice
made a run.
Jamie Lane canned a 3-
pointer to draw Venice to
within 32-26. Ladaisha
Holloway followed with her
own trey to put Southeast
back up 35-26. Gaudreau
then scored back-to-back


George Stritz


buckets on drives. She found
Kaylee Ream all alone under-
neath for a layup that cut it to
35-32 with two minutes left.
But Venice would never get
any closer. Ill-timed turn-
overs and a couple of missed
shots took care of that.
Southeast, which shot an


awful 2-for-16 in the second
half after a hot first half, was
able to ice the game at the
free throw line.
Holloway canned a pair
of free throws, Bianca
Hanna sank four and Breana
Siplin two more in the final
1:35.
Southeast canned an
impressive 18-for-23 at the
charity stripe.
Venice only went nine
times and only made four.
Hanna was also a big rea-
son why Southeast was able
to record the W. The
Southeast guards were able to
lob the ball inside to Hanna,
who was able to get wide
open for layups. Hanna had
10 points in the first quarter
and then had eight more in
the second. She had 18 of
Southeast's 26 points at the
half.
Venice held her to zero
field goals in the second half.
Hanna finished with a
game-high 24 points. Guard


Holloway finished with 14
points and was 9-for-11 at the
free-throw line.
Ream led Venice with 11
points.
The Venice junior varsity
escaped Bradenton with a 49-
43 victory over Southeast.
Ann Ross's renegades are now
4-1. Dorothy Rahal scored 14
points and Kristen Jutras
added a dozen.

Suncoast Orthopedic a senior softball dynasty


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Be it on the radio, in the
bar, or at the game, sports talk
always seems to come back
around to dynasties.
How about the New York
Yankees in baseball? Or
maybe the Green Bay
Packers? Or the Boston
Celtics? Perhaps the Montreal
Canadians or Edmonton
Oilers?
In senior slo-pitch softball,
Venice 4 to' be-'corsidered
among the best in the land.
Backing that up are the
.numerous national champi-
onships recorded by teams
from the area. Also, Venice
squads always seem to be
tearing up in the monthly
Half Century State Tourn-
aments.
More living proof is in the
Travel League, which encom-
passes 60-plus star squads
from a tri-county area.
The league was formed in
1995. A few years later,
Venetians like Larry Monroe,
Lou Giovanini, Richard Marks
and Herman Zornes decided
to form a team of local boys
and see how they would stack
up against the best from
Sarasota, Bradenton and
Punta Gorda.
The rest is history. Can you
say dynasty?
"The Sarasota Sharks were
the best team around,",
recalled Monroe. "We beat
them the first year we were in
the league. This is our eighth
year in the league. We've won
seven times."
The team's record through
seven years is an incredible
210-17. The winning percent-
age is a scintillating .925.
At first, the Venice entry
was sponsored by Blue
Dolphin Car Wash. Then
Suncoast Orthopedic came
on board and the team still
flies under its banner.
"The worst record we ever


had was 27-3," said Monroe,
who is player/manager of the
current bunch. "Our roster is
by invitation only. There has
been very little turnover
through the years."
Each team plays a 30-game
schedule. Games are played
Wednesday at either the
Foxworthy Complex in
Venice, the 17th Street
Complex in Sarasota, the
Carmalita Complex in Punta
Gorda and G.T. Bray Park in
Bradenton. ,
The seas0n.-runs, from
November through March.
There are six teams in the
league for 2006-07.
This season's infield
includes Billy Brotherton at
first base, Sal Salorenzo at
second base, Dennis
Schroeder at shortstop,
Giovanini in the middle and
Hansel Faulkner at third base.
Jim Green, John Mello and
Fred Kopp are utility players.
The outfield has Bill Gray,
Dick Brown, Ron Anderson,
Mel Eubank, Marks and
Monroe.
Al Gates and Zornes are
pitchers. They can also catch.
This season's squad is in
first place with a 4-0 start.
This past Wednesday,
Orthopedic trounced the
Punta Gorda Hurricanes 18-
12 and 12-0 at Carmalita.
The wrecking trio of Gates
(5-for-6), Lou Giovanni (5-for-
6) and Mello (5-for-6) did
most of the offensive damage.
Gates pitched both games,
allowing only four hits in the
second game.
Monroe sparkled in right
field with two great catches
and an assist.
Orthopedic made only one
error, while turning over four
double plays.
The team travels to 17th
Street Park this coming
Wednesday morning at 8:45.
The opponent is Advanced
Sports Medicine.

SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN

The Cincinnati Reds, the
Reds Community Fund and
Sarasota County Parks and-
Recreation came through in
the clutch for the second
annual "Make a Difference"
weekend, held last month.
During the event, a com-
munity-wide voluntary week-
end of service, the Cincinnati
Reds provided several volun-
teers and over $20,000 in
monetary resources to a ren-
ovation project at Newtown
Estates Park.
The projects included
painting, landscape mainte-
nance and the renovation of
two Little League baseball
fields. Volunteers from Sara-
sota County Parks and


Recreation and the Cin-
cinnati Reds worked with res-
idents of the Newtown com-
munity to improve the neigh-
borhood and its recreation
facilities.
The Reds provided new
bases, new scoreboards, con-
crete pads for the batting
cages and lunch for all volun-
teers.
"It was a pleasure to play a
part in the Make a Difference
weekend," said Reds' director
of Florida operations Jeff
Maultsby. "We are elated to.
have been invited to partici-
pate in such a worthwhile
effort and to be in a position
to give back to this great com-
munity we call home."
The Newtown projects
were among the many that


took place throughout the
county. All weekend, groups
and individuals performed
community service projects
to make Sarasota County a
better place.
Community-'based pro-
jects took place in the cities
of Sarasota, Venice and
North Port, and in other
county locations. The events
were held in conjunction
with the National Make a
Difference Day, in partner-
ship with the Points of Light
Foundation.

It's doubtful singer-song-

Warm Mineral Springs in

Since it first opened to the

Warm Mineral Springs has
drawn a crowd largely of
Eastern European origins.
Soothing music is piped in all

For that reason, the water
is a near-constant 87 degrees

Florida.
But its appeal is not just
that the water is warm: it is
also highly mineralized. High

cenote is formed in limestone
when an underground cavity
collapses, exposing it to sur-
face air.
The first to explore its under-
water reaches was William
Royal Not formally trained in
archaeology, he was something
of a cowboy, plunging into the
dark depths ofthe highlyminer-
alized waters without knowing
what he would find, and resur-
facing with a variety of ancient
treasures.
In 1959, he discovered a
10,000-year-old human skull,
still with brain tissue inside. It
seems the combination of
high mineral content and
lack of oxygen allowed for the
preservation o'organic mate-
rial for millennia.
But soon after being.
removed, the white tissue
turned gray and mushy, and
the skull was placed in
formaldehyde or storage.
Royal also discovered ani-
mal bones, including some
from a saber cat, as well as
mammoths' teeth. Many of
the human and animal
bones, stalactites and stalag-
mites he found there, Royal
incorporated into a huge
stone fireplace that was the
focal point in his home.
But Royal's methods were
not appreciated by trained
archaeologists For one thing,
he recorded almost nothing
about the context of his dis-
coveries: where and with
what other material the
bones were found, for exam-
ple.

State University brought

methodology to the springs.
His most famous find was a
nearly complete human
skeleton tucked into a cav-
ernous ledge about 40 feet
below the surface.
The presence of stalactites
and stalagmites in this niche
confirmed that the cavern was
once above water. During the
last "ice age," sea level was some
100 to 300 feet lower than it is
now, because more water was
locked up in glaciers. It is likely,
said Cockrell, that the cenote
collapsed during that period
because the lower water level
left the roof of the cavity unsup-
ported.
This niche yielded a skele-
ton in fetal position, almost
certainly arranged that way
during an ancient burial ritu-
al. More important, associat-
ed with the skeleton was a
man-made object: the handle
from an "aflatl," a tool Paleo-
Indians used'to hurl .a spear
over long distances.
Finding the artifact with
the carefully arranged skele-
ton was significant, according
to on-site archaeologist Steve
Koski, because it enhances
the likelihood that this was,
indeed, an intentional
human burial with "grave
goods" possibly meant to
serve the deceased in the
afterlife.
The human remains date
back as much as 8,000 to
11,000 years ago. Sediments
in the bottom of the cenote
have been analyzed andshow
that this area was once much
drier and cooler. The pres-
ence of such finds as hickory
pollen indicates the area was
once surrounded by decidu-
ous forests typical of today's
more northern climates.

The county commis-
sion will ask for state
permission to conduct
a pilot program. It will
also seat a blue ribbon
panel of residents to
consider all elections
options.

BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A pilot program that could
allow all Sarasota County vot-
ers to fill out ballots at home
and mail them to elections
officials for counting will
receive consideration before
a final decision is made on
how best to replace more
than 1,600 paperless touch-
screen voting machines.
On Tuesday, the. county
commission agreed to ap-
point a blue-ribbon panel of
residents to consider the lim-
ited alternatives available
under both Florida law and
a Sarasota County Charter
amendment that mandates a
new system with paper ballot
receipts by 2008.
"Our supervisor of elec-
tions (Kathy Dent) has asked
for $3.5 million to buy new
machines, and we're just
making a final payment on
the existing ones this year,"
CountyAdministrator Jim Ley
said. "The state only certifies
one machine with a paper
trail."
At last count, 52 of Florida's
67 counties use optical scan-
ners to process hand-marked
ballots and record the votes.
The technology is relatively
simple and has been em-
ployed by Manatee County
elections officials for more
than a decade without seri-
ous problems.
But the prospect ofspend-
-ig- i rh ht' $3.5 million ito $4
million for new machines
may not be necessary if the
Florida Legislature agrees to,
allow a local pilot project
modeled on the mail-in vot-
ing system Oregon has suc-
cessfully used since 1998.
"There has been a lot of
press coverage about the
Oregon system," Commis-
sioner Joe Barbetta said, "and
I just spoke to a group of citi-
zens about it. This is an
incredible system in which 80
percent of the voters partici-
pate. I've written down all the
advantages."
Credibility
While there was no objec-


involve candidate races, he
explained, '"A county can use
mail ballot votes for a referen-
dum or other questions, but
not for candidates for office."
The county is obligated to
overhaul its election system
for the second time in six
years because 55 percent
of the voters recently sup-
ported a charter amendment
authored by the Sarasota
Alliance for Fair Elections, a
citizens group that petitioned
for the return of paper ballots.
After the disputed 2000
presidential election, the
county scrapped its punch
card equipment and pur-
chased 1,615 ES&S iVotronic
paperless touch-screen vot-
ing machines for $4.7 million,
which do not produce a
voter-verified ballot receipt
for recounts and audits.


tion to looking at the Oregon
system, Commissioner Shan-
non Staub said she had seen a
video about it that raised
security concerns.
"We would be at the mercy
of the post office," she said.
"The system is labor intensive
and the ballots go through a
lot of hands."
Commissioner Paul Mer-
cier, who spent two weeks on
a canvassing board when the
disputed Florida Congres-
sional District 13 race
between Vern Buchanan and
Christine Jennings raised
questions about paperless
touch-screen machines, had
different reservations.
"I'm still not convinced
there were any mechanical
glitches with the machines
we have, and we still have to
conduct (city of Sarasota)
elections on them next year,"
he said. "We don't want to
undermine the credibility of
elections that are coming up."
After a 30-minute discus-
sion, Commission Chair-
woman Nora Patterson asked
each commissioner to submit
the names of five people who
could objectively consider the
county's options. She agreed
to review them with Ley and
submit a list of finalists for
appointment to an advisory
panel.

Not allowed yet
In the interim, several
members of the county's leg-
islative delegation will be
approached to pursue a local
bill this spring that would
allow a pilot project based on
the Oregon mail-in system,
which was approved in 1996
and has been in effect since
1998.
"I realize there is a certain
amount of nostalgia in show-
ing up at the polls to vote,"
Barbetua said, "but I think we
sh*mlid" give h' Oleg6n' ys-
tem serious consideration.
This is about the integrity of
our voting process. We're
under attack and need our
credibility back."
Florida Division of Elec-
tions spokesman Sterling Ivey
confirmed what is currently
allowed.
"State law does not allow
for an election by mail," he
said. "It says voters will cast
their votes at polling places,
but allows mail voting for
absentee and overseas vot-
ers."
With respect to referen-
dums on such things as char-
ter amendments and special
taxing districts that do not

BY BENNETT GROSS
RELIGION COLUMNIST


It was almost 10 years ago,
but I remember.
I remember the first Yom
Hashoah memorial service for
the victims of the Holocaust
my wife and I attended in
Epiphany Cathedral and how
it began in silence the
silence of prayer, the silence
born of a world that stood
silent in the face of evil.
I remember how moved we
were bythe young participants,
the children's choir singing in
Hebrew "Shalom Haverim"
(Peace, My Friends) and the
somber procession of students
from Cardinal Mooney and
other schools in the Diocese
lighting 13 candles in memory
of the 6 million Jews and 7 mil-
lion others who were victims of
Nazi oppression.
And I remember finally the
sense of bonding at the con-
.clusion of this "Hour of
Remembrance" when we
joined hands with our neigh-
bors, Jews and Christians,
under God's tent, and raised
our voices in a hymn that
touched our hearts and souls.
"Let there be peace on
earth, and let it begin with
me."


This moment of hope and
personal responsibility has.
continued to echo through-
out the sanctity of Epiphany
Cathedral due to the commit-
ment and tireless efforts of its
bishop, the Most Rev. John E.
Nevins, whose beliefs are so
poignantly reflected in this
excerpt from the first dioce-
san "Yom Hashoah, An Hour
of Remembrance," in 1991.
"The haunting but fright-
ened stare found in the eyes
of every Jewish victim of the
Holocaust looking intently on
us this evening, they beg us
never to forget what has hap-
pened to them; and then we
hear them urge us to love
God, trust in him always and
love one another."
What greater command-
ment has God given us than
to "love thy neighbor as you
would yourself," the essence
of both the Jewish and
Christian religions and a
deeply held doctrine of
Bishop Nevins, affirmed by
his being only one of nine of
the 165 bishops in the United
States to hold a Holocaust
remembrance prayer service.
A man of peace and good-
will who has furthered the
sanctity of human life and
upheld the dignity of every


person regardless of race or
religion, Nevins' actions place
him in the Jewish tradition as
"one of the Hasidei Ummot.
ha-Olem." In literal transla-
tion: "one of the righteous of
the nations of the world."
Throughout his life in the
ministry Nevins has engaged
in a dialogue with those he
calls "my brothers and sis-
ters," the result he says of his
upbringing. "My mother and
an aunt taught me to love all
my neighbors."
Soon after his installation
as bishop of the Diocese of
Venice he sought and found
ways to strengthen the ties
between the Catholic and
Jewish communities.
"I would encourage
Christian and Jewish people
to extend and accept invita-
tions to visit each other's
places of worship and pray
together," he said many
times.
At the holiest of times, at a
Christmas Eve Mass, I recall
the bishop's warm greeting,
"Shalom Alaichem, my
Jewish friends." And his
assurance that as descen-
dents of Abraham we are all
God's children.
To that end he established
the Bishop's Committee for


Catholic/Jewish Relations,
communal Passover Seders
with the Jewish Center of
Venice and made the study of
the Holocaust mandatory in
Catholic schools and religious
education programs.
"To remind our youth," he
said, "that it must never hap-
pen again and that the spiri-
tual bonds and historical
links bringing the church to
Judaism condemn all forms
of anti-Semitism.",
In his homilies Nevins has
continually urged his flock to
speak out when confronted
with anti-semitic bigotry,
supporting his rhetoric with
positive action when a local
ministerial group sought to
exclude those who did not
follow the teachings of Jesus
Christ.
Condemning their action
in the strongest of terms, he
directed the representatives
of the diocese to end their
involvement and join the
newly formed Venice Inter-
faith Association Community,
created to foster interfaith
respect and understanding
through dialogue and educa-
tion.
Two summers ago I partic-
ipated in a program pro-
duced for the U.S.


Conference of Catholic
Bishops and the National
Council of Synagogues called
"Walking God's Paths."
Consisting of a 10-week
series of dialogue-stimulating
videos, it brought together
representatives from Epiph-
any Cathedral and the Jewish
Center of Venice to share in
each faith's differences and
similarities, carrying away the
understanding of what it
means to each tradition to
walk God's path and find that
ultimately the paths converge
with the same message -
love God and serve one
another.
The program exceeded all
our expectations, laying the
foundation for dialogue else-
where between the two faiths.
Two years later some of the
original participants are still
meeting on a monthly basis
and establishing a dynamic
for what the late Pope John
Paul II envisioned.
"As Christians and Jews,
following the example of the
faith of Abraham, we are
called to be a blessing for the
world," he said. "This is the
common task awaiting us. It
is therefore necessary for us,
Christians and Jews, to be first
a blessing to one another."


Upon setting foot in
Venice, Nevins was welcomed
by leaders of the Jewish com-
munity, the first religious
leaders to do so. On Dec. 8 the
president and officers and
members of the Jewish
Center of Venice will bid him
a fond farewell with a special
Shabbat service.
All of us who have been
touched by Nevins will
remember his accomplish-
ments in our own way.
Joel Kreiss, past president
of the JCV and one of the
most earnest advocates of
"Walking God's Paths," offers
these widely felt sentiments:
"We, the Jewish communi-
ty of Venice, ask God's special
blessing for Bishop Nevins for
all the years of tireless effort
to make the world a better
place. A good shepherd of
your flock and a good friend
of ours, we can all rejoice in
your achievements in build-
ing loving bridges between
our faiths. We wish you,
Bishop Nevins, peace, joy,
good health and happiness as
you enter the next phase of
your wonderful life."
To this I can only add,
"Shalom Aleichem. Go in
peace as you walk God's
paths."

Pet peeves about pet owners


BY CYNTHIA BILLHARTZ GREGORIAN
ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

Time was when cutesy
anecdotes and tales of disci-
plinary woe were the sole
domain of parents. Not any
more.
Some pet owners have
taken up talking about the
comings and goings of their
four-legged friends as though
they gave birth to them and
are gearing them toward a
high-powered career. Some
don't even like to be called pet
owners.
They prefer pet parents.
To parents of children, the
human variety, this can be
annoying. Many of us have
observed this firsthand. I did
one evening while dining
with friends.
Who doesn't get it?
When one began talking
about raising her teenage
son, another friend at the
table, who doesn't have chil-
dren, chimed in with an elab-
orate story about her dog's
mischievousness. The friend
with the son became visibly
irritated. "I'm sorry, but it's
insulting that you would


compare your dog to my
son," she said. "They're not
the same."'
A few years ago, Victor
Farwell and his wife decided
they had heard enough about
their friends' cat. Farwell ad-
mits they did their share of
talking about their son. But a
cat?
"They would talk about the
cute clothes they bought for
the cat, the new special treat
the cat was eating, the new
cat food bowl," says Farwell,
55, of St. Louis. "So we eased
off talking about our son and
moved on to other subjects.
But they didn't. They still
came back to the cat."
Different strokes
for different folks
Who knows why pet own-
ers have decided that Fido
and Fluffy are fodder for con-
versations about child-rear-
ing. Perhaps they don't realize
what they're implying. Or
maybe parents are mistaken-
ly inferring comparisons,
when none is intended. And
could it be that spinning long
cat yarns and detailed doggy
tales are a way to turn the
tables on parents who prattle


on about how precious or,
worse, precocious, their tod-
dlers are?
Julie Oermann, 33, admits
that sometimes when friends
and acquaintances talk to her
about their kids, she'll say,
"Oh, yeah, I know exactly
what you're talking about."
"And then I'll tell a story
that kind of equates my dogs
to their child. But it's not like I
actually think my dogs are
equal to their child," she says.
Oermann has cut back on
telling stories about Roxy and
Peaches, for fear of boring the
stuffing out of others like
some parents do.
"Because people do talk
about their kids a lot. You
know how 'Jimmy did this
and that,' and you're like, 'Oh,
how nice,' she says. "But I
realized I'd become one of
those people so I stopped.
Now I just talk to other dog
owners who are the same
level of crazy."
Big business
According to recent statis-
tics, finding such pet owners
isn't hard. Today, there are
more pet owners than ever,
and like Oermann, they're


spending more time, money
and energy on them. In the
past five years, the pet indus-
try has grown by 20 percent
and has more than doubled
from $17 billion in 1994 to
$38.5 billion last year. That's
more than we spend on
candy and toys. Further
underscoring the importance
of pets are wildly popular TV
shows such as "The Dog
Whisperer" and 'best-selling
books such as "Marley & Me."
'Emotionally connected'
Patricia McConnell, a cer-
tified applied animal behav-
iorist and professor at the
University of Wisconsin, has
written two books on bond-
ing with dogs. She was re-
cently quoted in a California
newspaper as saying she
believes the emotions of dogs
deserve a lot of attention, and
their strong bond with
humans is not trivial.
"We are emotionally con-
nected to dogs at our limbic
systems perhaps that's why
we love them so much," she
said in the Marin Inde-
pendent Journal. Beth Rup-
pel, owner of Wolfgang's Pet
Stop in the St. Louis area,
talks about her dog Wolfgang
as if he's her baby and credits
him with dramatically chang-


ing her life.
"I used to be a school
teacher, and now he's my
boss," she says, explaining
how she opened the pet shop
after she and her husband
found Wolfgang,. a mixed-
breed stray.
"I never thought I'd be
doing this, but he made all
the difference," she says. "He's
our family. We take him to all
our holidays and to family
and friend's houses. We never
leave him home or crated."
Some day, Ruppel says, she
might have a baby, but she
can't imagine that it would
change the way she feels
about Wolfgang. "I don't want
to be naive either," she says. "I
do understand the differ-
ences between a canine child
and human child. Relation-
ships with a dog can only
progress so far, where rela-
tionships between parents
and their children build and
deepen throughout life."
Bailey Sherry, 25, and Chris
Eversman, 32, of St. Louis
treat their 6-pound Maltese,
Molly, as though she were an
infant.
Baby talk
"Do you know what we did
this morning?" asked Sherry in
a baby-woo-woo voice. ."We


flipped her over and said,
'Good morning,' to every one
of her little body parts. We said,
'Good morning, little foot.
Good morning, little ear."'
And one night recently,
Eversman was cradling
Molly in his arms like a new-
born when he whispered he
was going to pass her off to
Sherry as gently as possible
so as not to awaken the
slumbering puff of white fur.
Sherry believes a little
doggy talk between parents
is probably OK, but she'd
never tell of Molly piddling
outside for the first time in
response to talk of potty-
training a toddler.
"That would be a little
weird because one is a dog
and the other is a person
with human growth poten-
tial who can contribute to
the economy," Sherry says.
Much like a parent,
Dennis Grousosky, 53, of St.
Louis alternately disciplines
and spoils his two
dachsunds, Buddy and Otto.
"They work for their dinner,
they have boundaries and
they don't have run of the
house," he says." But I
always say in my next life, I
wouldn't mind coming back
as Buddy or Otto, because
they do have a good life."

This organization recently
celebrated Nancy Detert at
their meeting. "For she's a
jolly good fellow" rang out as
the members thanked Nancy
for her work as district repre-
sentative.
Nancy turned the tables on
her friend and long-time
assistant Pam Nickell. She
called on Pam to give an


overview of their 8 years in
Tallahassee. "They were the
best years of my life," Pam
said.
In 1998 Nancy announced
her candidacy at the VNRC so
it was fitting to come before
the members near the end of
her term.

If depression persists, take a look at natural alternatives


SUZY COHEN, R.PH.


Q: I have been chronically
depressed for many years. I cur-
rently take Paxil, Buspar and
Desyrel (trazodone), but I still
have problems and wonder if.
the medication is working as
well as it used to. It just doesn't
seem like it because they keep
increasing the dosages. Do I
have any alternatives to these
medications? B.C., Steger, III.
A: For those of you who are
maintained on prescription
antidepressants and doing
well, consider yourself fortu-
nate. You are free to skip this
article. But many people take
multiple antidepressants and

WORDS WORTH
HEARING
* ,OS ,


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A |
Certified Audiologist s
Q. My boyfriend just
purchased new hearing aids
which fit entirely in his ear
canals and are not visible.
However, when we meet with
friends, his hearing aid
makes a loud whistling
sound whenever he is greeted
with a hug! What good are
invisible hearing aids, if they
make so much noise when
something (or someone)
comes near his ear?
A. I know exactly what you
mean. I can't tell you how
many times I've been in a
meeting which has to stop
momentarily when someone's
hearing aid begins to whistle.
Many times the person who is
wearing the aid doesn't even
hear it whistle and is
embarrassed when the other
mention it! Finally, someone
has solved this problem with
technology call "Active
Freedback Intercept" which
"learns the patient's unique
feedback paths, then remains
constantly on alert, sweeping
the soundscape and working to
eliminate any buzzing,
whistling or humming. If your
boyfriend's hearing aids are
not equipped with Active
Freedback Intercept, the only
way to reduce the occurrence
of whistling is by turning the
power, or volume down in his
instruments. While this reduces
the loudness of the whistle, it
also reduces the volume, for
speech and may compromise
his ability to hear clearly. Call
the Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers,
Inc. at 492-4327 to learn
more about ways to eliminate
annoying whistles from your
hearing aids.

still find themselves feeling
exhausted, overwhelmed,
tearful and irritable.
. Depression takes its toll on
people very quickly and on
their entire families. The prob-
lem is that medications typi-
cally stop working after a while
because the brain grows toler-
ant to the effects. You could
say your cells get used to the
drug hanging around and
eventually go numb to it.
For some people, switch-
ing medications is helpful; it
works for about 25 percent of
people who don't respond to
an SSRI drug like Prozac,
Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro
or their generics. If you have
tried several SSRI drugs and
are still not feeling complete-
ly well, your doctor will prob-
ably switch you to a different
antidepressant altogether.


Heritage
Health Care Center
"Before I started my
course of outpatient
therapy I could barely
raise my arm due to a fall
and it was painful. Now I


This will work for some peo-
ple. If it doesn't, physicians
usually begin to prescribe
multiple antidepressants and
in some cases even the bipo-
lar drug lithium or an
antipsychotic drug like
Zyprexa or Risperdal. The
goal is to manage the highs
and lows and stabilize mood.
I don't like to see a person'
with depression taking all
that medication because of
the exposure to so many
dangerous side effects. Some
of the milder side effects
include sexual dysfunction,
tremors, headaches, vomit-
ing and aggression.
So what to do? Rather
than walk around in a zom-
bie state from multiple meds,
I would suggest exploring
natural alternatives that nor-
malize brain chemicals and

replenish what may be defi-
cient. I emphasize the word
"explore." Don't start any nat-
ural mood boosters on your
own if you already take med-
ications, because of the dan-
ger of interactions.
Furthermore, you're deal-
ing with brain chemicals, so
approach with caution.
Bearing that caution in mind,
you might read and learn
about L-tyrosine, an energiz-
ing amino acid that helps
you make dopamine, a
happy brain chemical. It also
boosts thyroid hormone,
which eases depression and
fatigue. Learn about SAMe, a
natural antidepressant and
joint-pain reliever that has
been used overseas for
decades with great success.
Consider EPA/DHA fish oils
as well as a good brand of 5-


HTP St. John's wort is very
useful too, and numerous
studies prove it.
There are so many ways to
help yourself. My point is to
research as much as you can
so you can talk to your doc-
tor about normalizing brain
chemicals rather than layer-
ing drug upon drug because
you're not getting the results
you desire.
Did you know? Cayenne
pepper can be added to any
herbal tea to boost your cir-
culation and warm the body.
This is particularly helpful

The clothes were carefully
sorted on the basement floor.
Whites were ALWAYS done
first.
After the clothes had agi-
tated for about 20 minutes,
they were fed through the
wringer. (More than one
woman has been seriously
injured when her hand was
caught in the wringer while
feeding some clothes be-
tween the rollers.)
The wash then fell into the
first yellow tub to be rinsed by
hand; then again through the
wringer into the second tub
for a final rinse; and back
through the wringer into the
laundry basket.
When the basket was full
- "full" meaning as many
wet clothes as one could carry
up the basement steps and
into the back yard that's
exactly what happened: up
the steps and out into the

Our "dryer" was a series of
clotheslines strung between
the house and garage. Each
piece of laundry was carefully
hung to dry.
How long they hung
depended on the weather, how
the wringer worked, or how
heavy the material. They hung
till they were dry unless, of
course, it rained. But that's
another story.
No, Mother did not do the
washing between doing other
things.
Would I trade my washer
and dryer for her old washer,
those steps and her clothes-
lines? Never. But neither will I
ever forget the time we spent
together in that laundry
room. Yes, in many ways
those truly were the good old
days.
And that's my two cents
worth.

Private railroad cars provide step back in time


By LIUSA CORNWELL
Guest Writer
Financial barons and
wealthy socialites once trav-
eled the country on luxuri-
ous private railroad cars, din-
ing on fine china and crystal
and pampered by stewards.
Today's travelers can recap-
ture that romantic era with
journeys on some of the
same cars.
A relatively small number
of train devotees have pur-
chased and refurbished the
private rail cars familiar in
the first half of the 20th cen-
tury the golden age of pas-
senger rail travel.
Passengers can sip cock-
tails and nibble on hors
d'oeuvres while sinking into
deep leather sofas in lounges
paneled in rich mahogany
and be lulled to sleep at
night by the rhythm of train
wheels rolling down the rails.
"I wasn't a train buff, but I
am now," said Donna
Cothron, who took a trip
with her husband on the
Cincinnati-based Oliver
Hazard Perry sleeper-lounge.
"I could travel like this forev-
er. It's so relaxing."
The Cothrons' car was
part of a train that went to
Chicago for shopping and
sightseeing, then through
picturesque Michigan towns
such as Petoskey on the
banks of Lake Michigan and
Boyne Falls, where the train
pulled into a Polish Festival.
"Everyone was so excited
in all the small cities we
stopped in, and some
brought their kids to see the
train," Cothron added. "You
felt like you were riding with
ithe president." . '
' While the Cothrbns' car
was chartered for iheir use
only, the private-car train
also included the Vista Dome
sleeper-lounge topped with a
glass dome providing a 360-
degree %iew and the Birch
Grove sleeper that accom-
modates 22 people.
'The private sirigle cars
and multi-car trains normal-
ly travel Amtrak routes,
hooked onto the back of
Amtrak passenger trains as
they wind through the Sierra


Mountains or the Great
Plains or into bustling metro-
politan areas such as
Chicago, NewYork and
Washington.
Sometimes they go off
Amtrak lines, hiring a freight
engine to pull the cars along
short-line railroads that are
less traveled and offer a more
leisurely pace and the oppor-
tunity to stop in small towns.
The Cothrons leased a car
with three bedrooms, two
showers, kitchen, dining
room and lounge solely for
themselves and were served
by a chef-concierge.
"It's like riding in a mil-
lion-dollar motor home on
rails," 'said Edwin Cothron, a
real estate developer, as he
relaxed in the car with a glass
'of wine as the 1940s song
"Long Ago and Far Away"
played softly in the back-
ground.
There are 130-140 private
rail cars for charter certified
for Amtrak routes in nearly
every section of the country,
and some for Canada and
Mexico, according to Diane
Elliott, executive director of
the American Association of
Private Railroad Car.
Businesses, organizations,
families and groups of
friends lease the cars to go to
reunions; celebrate birthdays
or anniversaries and attend
sports events like the
Kentucky Derby or the Super
Bowl.
Interior design varies from
the brass trim and wood
paneling of luxurious busi-
ness cars to the high-gloss
enamel and stainless steel of
the Art Deco style popular in
the 1940s and 1950s.
Brian Collins, ,owner and
president of the Cincinnati
Railway Co., said most of the
50 or so owners around the
country who provide charter
service charge by the car. He
also makes trips available per
individual.
A four-day trip to
Washington might cost
$1,000 per person, including
the accommodations on the
train, food and drinks.
Off the train, passengers
pay for their own meals and

Staying in a Pullman cabin aboard a Grand-Luxe train is as
close as most people can get to traveling in a private rail car.
This sleeper car, circa 1950s era, was used for the train
company's Ante Bellum South tour held earlier this year.
Occasionally, Grand Luxe leases private cars to be used as
club cars for its passengers, providing its passengers with a
look at how such cars can be customized.


activities.
"The cost can be compa-
rable to a high-end ocean
cruise," Collins said.
Lifelong rail fan Ted
Hunon, 59, of Cincinnati,'
said he paid about $200 a :
day for the recent eight-day
trip from Cincinnati to
Michigan.
"Part of the appeal to me
is the nostalgia, but it's also
more comfortable and con-
venient than Amtrak,"
Hutton said. "I can park my
car, get on and off when I
want and have all the ameni-
ties."
Collins, who took his first
private rail car trip in 1996,


eventually bought the Birch
Grove, a 1950 sleeper car that
served on the Southern,
Pacific's "Sunset Limited"'
between Los Angeles and
New Orleans.
i l"I decided that if I bought
a sleeper, I could partner
with owners of lounge and
dining cars for trips," said
Collins, who handles the
complex scheduling involved
in switching back and forth
between railways and
arranging destinations.
His sleeper car has 10
private one-bedroom
roomettes with pull-down
sinks and beds and six dou-
ble bedrooms. Each sleeping


room has a sink and toilet,
and there is a shower
onboard.
Roger Verbeeren Jr., owner
and president of the subur-
ban Chicago-based,
American Rail Excursions
Inc., also puts cars together
from a fleet of sleepers,
lounges, coaches and busi-
ness cars based just outside
St. Louis, where most of the
company's trips begin.
His Silver Quail sleeper
features 11 bedrooms that
have either a short sofa,
lounge chair and fold-down
table or a long sofa and fold-
down table.
At night, an upper bed
stowed against the ceiling or
wall is pulled down and the
sofas convert into lower
beds.
The Silver Quail and the
Royal Street, a sleeper-lounge
observation' car, hooked up
with the Cincinnati Railway
on the recent trip to
Michigan.
"I loved to just relax on my
lower berth and watch the
countryside passing by," said
passenger Jan Caudell, a
middle school teacher from
Squth Bend, Ind., who had
never ridden on a private car.
It was the fifth trip for Ron
Arturi, of Willow Springs, ill.
He said the service was simi-
lar to an ocean cruise, but
with a more intimate atmos-
phere.
"It's more of 4 casual ele-
gance," he said.
"There weren't chocolates
on the pillow, but stewards
were there to serve you and
turn your bed down at
night," Caudell said.
p RoyvWullich, owner and
president of the Santa Clara,
Calif.-based Rail Journeys -.
West, has leased his 1948
Silver Solarium dome'obser-
vation car to film companies.
He said singer Barry Manilow
once chartered four cars for
himself, his family and
friends.
Wullich said his typical
per-car charge might be
$5,000-$8,000, but there are
ways to defray costs.
"One group of ladies from
the Denver area got together


to charter a car one way to a j
cooking school they were
attending in the Napa Valley,
and then flew back," he said.
Trip length and destina-
tion also factor into afford-
ability.
"People can still get a high
level of service without being
an oil baron or millionaire,"
saidVerbeeren, who offers
extended weekend trips such
as St. Louis to Chicago for
around $650 a person.
JimWrinn, editor of Trains
magazine, said that traveling
on private rail cars of the
kind that carried business
magnates such as J.P Morgan
and E.E Hutton certainly isn't
inexpensive, but there is a
strong nostalgic appeal.
."You get travel, history,
romance and intrigue all
in one," he said.

U.S. ski resorts using more 'green' power with the white


BY ROBERT WELLER
GUEST WRITER


Visitors to many ski areas
'this winter will find cleaner
air and better views of
mountain landscapes.
Not only are ski resorts
pushing legislation in
Washington to combat glob-
al warming, at least 45
resorts in 14 states from
coast-to-coast are using
clean energy for some of
their operations.
Sixteen are getting 100
percent of their power from
green energy sources includ-
ing wind, hydroelectric,
solar, bio-mass and geother-
mal.
"I think we're a platform
industry. We have a bully
pulpit to operate from. When
you think of global warming
the first thing you think of is
snowfall and wintertime and
how that changes," said
Michael Berry, president of
the National Ski Areas
Association.
Bearing it
Bear Mountain and Snow
Summit will spend $6 million
on emission controls, said
Bob Roberts, executive direc-
tor of the California Ski
Industry Association.
Aspen will focus on global
warming in three upcoming
ads in outdoor magazines.
"We did talk internally before
doing this. We knew it was
risky but we want skiing to
be around for 100 years,".
said Jeanne Mackowski,
Aspen's director of market-
ing.
'The industry is trying to
show individuals that they


can make a difference, said
Berry.
Colorado, which set a
record for skier visits last year
with 12.53 million skier days,
will offer two new gondolas
this year.
Breckenridge, the nation's
second-busiest ski resort, has
built a gondola connecting
the town's transportation
center off Main Street to Peak
7 and Peak 8. The eight-pas-
senger facility, which can
carry 3,000 passengers per
hour, means fewer people
riding buses to the moun-
tain. The resort also has
added the highest lift in the
nation, the high-speed
Imperial Express, which goes
to 12,840 feet on the summit
of Peak 8.
"It has already raised our
profile. The thing the gondo-
la does is connect a great his-
toric mining town with one
of the great ski areas of the
world. You don't get too build
too many of them in your
career. The Imperial Express
on the top and the gondola
on the bottom are two great
bookends," said Roger

You got skunked! The truth about changing terms


JUNE CASAGRANDE



For most of my life, I've
lived in apartments. So mov-
ing into a house 2-1/2 years
ago has taken some getting
used to. The differences
between the two lifestyles
have been well documented
by every comedian who
thinks it's funny to hear an
upstairs neighbor flushing a
toilet in the middle of the
night or to see a 90-year-old
Hungarian woman's house-
coat blow open as she's fetch-
ing the newspaper.
But while the visual and
auditory differences in
lifestyle are well known,
there's another sensory differ-
ence that seems to get a lot
less billing: the difference in
smells. For.example, whereas
my last apartment offered a
potpourri of neighbor smells


including burnt toast, mari-
juana smoke and spices that
must have been smuggled
into the country in dress
shields, my house offers an
aroma I find even more trou-
bling: skunk.
Skunk smell is much less
offensive than it's reputed to
be at first. And I've got to
admit that the two polecats I
saw waddling in the alley a
few weeks ago were pretty
cute in a "run for your life"
kind of way. But when the
smell of skunk seeps into your
bedroom from somewhere
outside at least once a week, it
becomes more offensive to a
lifelong apartment dweller
than even the laughter of chil-
dren.
So, in honor of the darling
little stinky polecats that have
made suburban living so hard
to swallow, I offer this column
on "skunked terms."
I'll let Bryan Garner of
"Garner's Modern American
Usage" define this term:
"When a word undergoes a
marked change from one use
to another a phase that
might take ten years or a hun-
dred it's likely to be the
subject of dispute. Some peo-
ple (Group 1) insist on the tra-
ditional use; others (Group 2)
embrace the new use, even if


it originated purely as the
result of 'word-swapping' or
'slipshod extension.'"
Take the sentence, "The
data on skunk homicides sug-
gests they occur mostly in the
suburbs." How do you like the
subject/verb combination:
"data suggests"? Would you
prefer "data suggest"? If so,.
you're a member of Garner's
Group 1, likely to insist that
"data" is a plural the plural
of datum. And you would
insist that "data" take a plural
verb: "The data are convinc-
ing."
But perhaps you're in
Group 2, whose members
spent most of their early teen
years giving wedgies to any-
one who would use a word
like "datum." You, then, are
perfectly comfortable with
using "data" as a sort of mass
noun and giving it a singular
verb. "The data is convinc-
ing."
Either way, you're the vic-
tim of a skunked term. Yes,
"data" started as a plural. But
it's in transition. And most
authorities now accept it as a.
singular- a mass entity, so to
speak, But people who
remember the time when this
was a no-no or who went out
of their way to learn the dif-
ference continue to look


down their noses at anyone
who follows "data" with a sin-
gular verb.
An even skunkier term, in
my opinion, is "media."
Traditionalists insist that it's
the plural of "medium." And a
plural is a plural, they say.
"The media are biased."
Language liberals argue
that "media"" has indeed
evolved into a word that
sometimes refers to a singular
entity. And most dictionaries
and style guides allow this
usage. "The media is biased."
Other skunked terms
include "hopefully," "enormi-
ty," "effete," "decimate" and
"transpire" all words that
are in stinky stages of transi-
tion.
How should you deal with
these terms? Well, if you're
cheeky like me, you can use
them however you like,
armed with enough style
guides to defend yourself
against anyone who'd call you
"wrong." But if you're a little
more cautious, you might
want to avoid such odorous
words altogether.

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