Kayaker meets alligator and paddles away

Brien Tolone in his yellow kayak. He ran into an alligator when he was in shallow water.
According to the Florida Fish and Conservation Commission, alligators are less likely to perceive
a bright kayak as a potential threat.


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

Kayaking in shallow water
can have its perils. One of
them is bumping into a sleep-
ing alligator.
BrienTolone ofVenice found
this out on Monday when the
"dun" he felt nearly tipped him
over.
,"It made me jump, and it's
a good thing I didn't fall right
out of the kayak," he said.
It happened a few miles


north of Snook Haven near the
1-75 bridge. He first thought it
was a very big fish but then
noticed a lot of splashing
around the kayak.
"It was really frightening,
because it doesn't take much to
tip a kayak," he said. "Luckily, I
stayed pretty calm."
He has seen a lot of inter-
esting sights while enjoying
the sport, but this was a first.
"Alligators have never both-
ered us in the past, (though)
there is alot oflarge sea life float-


ing around out there," Tolone
said.
Talone has seen manatees,
white pelicans, some very large
sea turtles and even a horse
standing in the river.
"On the Peace River near
Arcadia once, a herd of cattle
ran 20 feet from the kayak,"
he said.
Not a fish
"I knew right away what I
hit wasn't a fish, it was too
big," he said.


When Tolone took another
look, he saw how big it really
was.
"It sort of erupted under
the kayak, then swam away."
he said.
STolone'noticed that a rope
hanging from a tree nearby.
had been used recently by
kids to jump into the water.
"It was kind of funny see-
ing the rope, and you wonder
how the kids swam around
the alligator," he said.'
Close call
One of the reasons for the
encounter is that Tolone was
in shallow water.
"If an alligator sees a fairly
large object in shallow water,
it can spook the gator," said
Gary Morse 'of the Florida
Fish and Conservation
Commission.
"They get spooked pretty
easily," he said.
Morse said that kayakers
go over alligators all the time
in deep water without a prob-
lem.
"An alligator will try to pro-
tect themselves or take
appropriate action if they feel
threatened," he said. "We had
a situation in Lakeland sever-
al years ago when a kayaker
surprised an alligator and the

itself or take appropriate
action if it feels threatened.

kayak tipped."
Morse said the alligator
wasn't interested in the
kayaker, but after it swam
away the kayaker noticed
there were teeth marks on the
kayak.
"We literally have tens of
thousands of people kayaking
in every type of water without
incidents each day," Morse
said. "These incidents are
rare."
Still, it's best to play it safe.
"You should always take
precautions," said Morse,
"particularly kayaking in shal-
low water at night, or canoe-
ing."

GATOR AID

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
recommends the following
precautions when dealing
with alligators:
SDo not kill, harass,
molest or attempt to move
the animal. State law pro-
hibits such actions and the
potential for being bitten or
injured by a thrashing alliga-
tor is high. Call (866) 392-
4286 to.report the rembval of
a nuisance alligator.
Don't swim outside post-
ed swimming areas or in
waters that might contain
large alligators.
Don't swim at night or
dusk when alligators most
actively feed.
Don't feed or entice alli-
gators. They will overcome
their natural shyness and
become accustomed or
attracted to humans when
fed.
Don't throw fish scraps
inio the water or leave them
on shore.
Don't allow pets to swim
in waters know to contain
alligators.

State acknowledges

red tide-fertilizer link


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


An interoffice memoran-
dum to Gov. Jeb Bush from
Colleen Castile, secretary of
the state Environmental
Protection Agency, appears to
have put the lie to Florida's
long-time contention that
there is no tie between pollu-
tion and the recent increase
in harmful algal blooms and
red tide plaguing the state's
coastal waters.
The admission by Castille,
reported last month by Public,
Employees for Environ-
mental Responsibility, a
Tallahassee public interest
group, supports a coalition of
environmental and health
organizations, including
Manasota-88 of Nokomis.
Glenn Compton, a Venice
High School science teacher
who heads the local group,
said that Castille's statement
vindicate him and his col-
leagues.
Castille wrote the gover-
nor, "We do know there is a
connection between nutri-
ents, including nitrogen and
phosphorus, and the expo-
nential growth of algae. But
we don't know at what con-
centration levels the bacteria
becomes toxic."
Manasota-88 was among
several public interest organi-
zations that successfully sued
the DEP in 1998. The lead
plaintiff, the Clean Water
Network of Florida, argued
that the state agency was
allowing Florida's more than
700 bodies of water to
become more polluted by
changing the definition of
"polluted," and dropping
rivers, lakes and streams from
a list of impaired waters in
annual reviews.
In its decision in 2004, the
federal llth Circuit Court of
Appeals in Atlanta ruled


against the DEP's claim that
red tide does not count as an
indicator of pollution.
"That's ridiculous," said
Linda Young, director of
CWNE
Unqualified
The court also required the
state to provide the plaintiffs
with a complete and updated
roster of the endangered
water bodies among all 700 in
Florida.
A typical maneuver by the
DEP, according to Young, was
to test a water body several
years after an earlier test, and
finding it clean enough to be
dropped from the endan-
gered list, even though no
clean-up had been per-
formed. That followed the
earlier test findings of mer-
cury in fish and nutrients in
the water.
Locally, Curry Creek, Little
Sarasota Bay, North, South
and Catfish creeks and tribu-
taries of the Myakka River
were dropped from the
endangered list in 2005 with-
out additional testing. Seven
years earlier, Howard and
Owen creeks, Big Slough
Canal and Mud Lake Slough,
among those tributaries, had
shown pollution.
"You can examine the
DEP's own data,'and confirm
that the same problems exist
seven years later," said Young.
Compton said that in tests
performed by Manasota-88
members, "We could spot
algae and dead fish. But by
redefining the state's
impaired waters rule, those
waters could not qualify for
federal money to clean them
up.
Compton said that Mana-
sota-88 since 2003 has ques-
tioned the city of Venice
about proposed effluent dis-

'Indian Safe Pledge' catching on slowly


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


A safe-students pledge
being driven by Venice High's
SAC leaders and students isn't
catching on as hoped.
It's partly due to reluctance
pn the part of youths to sign a
pledge during what can be for
some a recalcitrant stage in
life, and partly due to lack of
organization on the part
of adults spearheading the
effort.
The school missed a gold-
en opportunity to promote
the pledge in a big way during
homecoming festivities last
month, the first major event
of the school year at most
schools. It's when many
underage students face the
decision whether to drink
alcohol..
According to national sur-
veys, almost half the student
population admits to having
had a drink in the past week.
A quarter of the student
population 'said they had
more than five drinks in a row
in the last 30 days, according
to the most recent National
Youth Risk Behavior Survey.
About 200 student signa-
tures have been gathered at
Venice High since the initia-
tive was announced last year,
estimates Nick Gissal, a
Venice High senior promot-
ing the pledge.
A firm count isn't known


because the pledge cards col-
lected from students, teach-
ers, parents and local busi-
nesses haven't been tallied
due to a shortage of volun-
teers, said SAC Chairwoman
Lisa Callaghan at a meeting
last month.
"Numbers fell by the way-
side last year," Callaghan said.
"Parents wanted additional
information and we didn't
have it."
Ultimately, Callaghan
would like to create a directo-
ry of parents so they can help
each other out. But she needs
help organizing the effort.
Even though the going has
been slow, school principal
Candace Millington is
pleased with progress already
made.
"There are lots of ways to
approach it," Millington said.
"You build a culture, and
grow it. It needs to be estab-
lished, maintained and then
supported. It will happen,
eventually."
Promises, promises
A separate pledge is avail-
able for parents to sign. The
pledge promises parents
won't provide alcohol or other
illegal drugs to their children
or the children of others.
Mom and dad can also
promise not to allow unsu-
pervised'parties or gatherings
or alcohol'consumption in
their home or on their prop-


erty-during teen gatherings.
Other pledges are being
offered to school staff, who
promise to honor the school's
zero-tolerance policy and
encourage students to report
alcohol- or drug-related inci-
dents.
A community pledge offers
local .businesses and service
organizations the opportuni-
Sty to promise not sell or pro-
vide alcohol, tobacco or ille-
gal drugs to underage youth.
Students who sign the
pledge agree not to use, pos-
sess or sell alcohol or illegal
drugs, or enter a vehicle
where the driver or other pas-
sengers have been drinking
or drugging.
Promising not to enter a
vehicle when others were
drinking posed a problem for
high schoolers.
"It wasn't working," said
Gissal, a member ofVHS stu-
dent council and representa-
tive on the school SAC com-
mittee.
"There was a misunder-
standing," he said. "Stud-
ents felt it restricted their
ability to drive friends (who
may have been drinking)
home safely; They wanted to
have that discretion in the
pledge.
"It was almost like you
were not-allowed to help. As a
friend you want to help, even
if your friend made a poor
decision."


Another day
Venice High student coun-
cil members who drafted the
pledge based on a program at
Sarasota Military Academy,
revised it, said VHS junior
Amanda Ellis, the other stu-
dent SAC member.
"The point is to make the
whole school safer," she said.
Since the wording was
revised, many more students
have signed the pledge, she
said.
Ellis keeps a copy of the
pledge at the office where she
interns.
"It's a reminder that makes
you think twice if you are
tempted to drink."
"Nobody wants to break a
pledge. It's like lying to your
parents."
"What we want is aware-
ness," Gissal said. "Students
have the right not to sign it.
That's their choice. I see lots
of support among students.
And lots say, 'No way.'"
"The pledge promotes
responsibility. The more you
have to think about it, the
clearer it becomes for you
to make the responsible
choice."
"The kids all know what it's
about," said Millington. "It's a
promise. Sometimes they
break them, but they know
they can start over another
day."

Venice close to a deal; North Port not


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER
It was clear at Friday's
meeting of area elected offi-
cials that there are just a few
details to work out in a joint
planning agreement between
Venice and Sarasota County.
Just as clear was the fact
that there are still several
seemingly major sticking
points to resolve before an
agreement will, be reached
with North Port.
County Administrator Jim
Ley summarized that situa-
tion briefly after the meeting.
"We're still making pro-
gress," said Ley. "We're signifi-
candy close with the Venice
agreement, and we are clos-
ing the gaps with North Port.
Most of the discussion in our
future meetings will be with
North Port.
"We have every hope that
we will all give each other a
nice Christmas gift by reach-
ing final agreement quickly,"
Second draft
The county has backed off
of its original preference for
agreements that extend until
the year 2050, expressing
agreement with the Venice
proposal for a 25-year term,
with provisions to extend the
plan another 15 years in

established increments.
As City Manager Marty
Black and consultant Rob
Lewis reviewed the Venice
proposal with commission-
ers, there were questions
regarding the definition of
terms and clarification of lan-
guage in certain areas.
It was agreed that staff
members will get together
again Monday to consider the
suggested amendments, and
that a revised third draft
would be forwarded to coun-
ty and Venice elected repre-
sentatives for review before
the next joint meeting, Dec.
14.
"According to the com-
ments of both city and coun-
ty officials," said Black,
"they're prepared to approve
our proposed agreement with
a few minor revisions. We
hope to get their final
approval at our meeting on
Jan. 4."
River Road
The discussion of an
agreement with North Port
did not go quite as well.
As City Manager Steven
Crowell ard his staff began to
outline what they felt were
areas of tentative agreement
in the negotiations, a number
of questions were raised by


the both county and North
Port commissioners.
Much of the discussion
centered on the area around
River Road and the "U.S. 41
corridor" on the west side of
North Port. City officials
made it clear that improving
River Road is a high priority
for them, and proposed that
the county earmark several
million dollars in funds for
that purpose,
"River Road is supposed to
be a major evacuation route,"
said City Commissioner
Richard Lockhart, "but three
areas of the road were under-
water during two recent
storms that weren't even hur-
ricanes. The city and county
have to get together on mak-
ing improvements to River
Road before it is needed in an
emergency."
The North Port proposal
identified some $8 million
that has already been collect-
ed by the county over the last
four years in the form of
transportation impact fees
from developments in the
city of North Port. The county
was then asked to commit to
"matching that amount over
a rolling 5-year period from
other County funds."
County commissioners
were not receptive to that

idea. Instead, they responded
with a challenge to the city.
"The county's portion of
generalized road fees," said
Commissioner Nora- Pat-
terson, "cannot be committed
to a specific area. Those funds
are apportioned according to
planning priorities, of which
there are many throughout
the county. If River Road is to
be developed and improved,
North Port will have to pay for
it."
Dropped
That prompted an equally
firm reply from North Port
Commissioner Vanessa
Carusone.
"I'm for taking the River
Road issue out of the agree-
ment," said Carusone, "and
just making it necessary for
the county to get permission
from the city to use any of the
funds they've collected from
us."
Shelly stepped in at that
point, agreeing that, since
this issue cannot be resolved
by Jan. 4, it should not be
included in the JPA draft.
Several other issues of con-
tention surfaced during the
discussion, including devel-
opment of the West Villages
and Isles of Athena areas and
the resulting new roadways


involved, as well as the acqui-
sition of adjacent ranchlands
and environmental concerns.
By the conclusion of the
meeting there was an under-
standing that, though the first
draft of the North Port JPA
would resemble that of
Venice in its format, there
would be variations to reflect
North Port's unique issues
and needs.


"I'm still optimistic," said
Crowell afterward. "We're still
talking, and everyone under-
stands that our details are dif-
ferent from those of Venice.
We'll see what the final agree-
ment looks like after our
meeting on Dec. 14."

Stay home
Most of the people hacking
their way through a work day
shouldn't even be at work.
"They probably shouldn't,
but it's not that simple,"
Pritchard said, "because
you've got employer issues
like sick leave to consider."
Health-care professionals
agree that a sick employee
who comes to work can infect
an entire workplace. They say
responsible employers should
encourage sick people to stay
home.
Finally, Pritchard has what
epidemiologists consider the
most important preventive
method of all.
"Washing your hands is the
single most important thing
you can do to prevent respira-
tory infections," he said. "Very
few bacteria or viruses are not
killed by that."

City notes

Water warning is false
People selling water purify -
ing equipment may approach
Venice city residents implying
that the city water is impure
and unhealthy to drink.
The city produces high-
quality potable water through
the reverse osmosis system.
Enough chlorine to purify the
water and meet environmen-
tal standards is added at the
end of processing before it is
piped to the homes and busi-
nesses in the city.
Those who live within the
city limits do not need to pur-
chase additional equipment
to ensure clean, safe drinking
water.
City employees do not sell
anything. Residents who
question the authenticity of
people presenting themselves
as city employees should ask
to see a city identification
badge.
If you are unsure about the
identity, or purpose of sales
people coming to your door,
call the Venice Police Depart-
ment, 486-2444.

Watering day changes
,Venice City Council passed
a resolution at Tuesday's
meeting changing the day
some residents may water
their lawns.
Properties with addresses
ending in odd numbers, or
letters 'A" through "M," may
be irrigated on Thursdays.
This is a change from Sunday.'
Properties with addresses
ending in even numbers, or
letters "N" though "Z," maybe
irrigated Tuesdays.
Venice residents may wash
vehicles and water landscape
shrubs by hand any time.
Hoses must have shut-off
nozzles.
New lawns and landscap-
ing may be watered on any
day of the week during a 60-
day establishment period,
beginning the day of planting.
Those with reuse or
reclaimed irrigation water are
not limited to watering one
day a week, but are encour-
aged to conserve.
All irrigation must take
place before 10 a.m. and after
4p.m.


Venice man



accused of child



sexual battery


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

AVenice man was charged
with sexual battery on a 4-
year-old girl Monday after-
noon.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office report,
Charles B. Horton, 26, 300
block Hillview Road, Venice,
was charged with sexual bat-
tery.
Sarasota County Detective
Catherine Duff said a
,Department of Children and
Families child protective
investigator arranged for the
Child Protection Team to con-
duct a forensic interview with
the child. At the Child
Protection Center in Sarasota,
the team was able to deter-
mine, using drawings and
pointing, that the girl had
been abused.
Horton denied any wrong-
doing to the DCF investigator.
Duff spoke to Horton, who
allegedly said he was
"remorseful" for what he had
done. Horton allegedly said
he was on prescription med-
ication and alcohol and he
was cleaning the girl when


the alleged abuse occurred.
Duff wrote that she called
for EMS, who checked
Horton out, and Horton was
taken to Venice Regional
Medical Center's emergency
room for a further examina-
tion.
Duff reported DCF took
the child into state care.
According to court records,
Horton has been arrested
before. On Jan. 24, 2005, he
was charged for aggravated
assault with a deadly weapon.
The state attorney's office
dropped the charges in April
2005.
On Sept. 6, 2005, Horton
was arrested on a charge of
battery. The SAO officially
charged him on Oct. 7.
However, the charge was
dropped because of a lack of
interest in prosecution by the
SAO.
Horton was denied bond
by a circuit court judge on the
sexual battery charge and is
being held in the Sarasota
County Jail.

Dems top Republicans in no-vote dispute in Dist.


BY JACK GURNEYAND RICK BARRY
PELICAN PRESS

Congressman-elect Vern
Buchanan owes his disputed
369-vote victory over Christine
Jennings to the fact that far
more Democrats than
Republican voters apparently
failed to cast votes on Sarasota
County's touch-screen mach-
ines, according to an Orlando
Sentinel analysis of post-elec-
tion ballot data.
Without that dispropor-
tionate difference, the study
indicates Jennings a
Democrat would have car-
ried the county by an addi-
tional 2,500 votes and won
the bitterly fought District 13
Race that remains under a
legal microscope one month
After the Nov. 7 election.
Ballot information obtained
by the newspaper shows 7,450
county voters who heavily sup-
ported Democrats in statewide
races inexplicably either over-
looked, bypassed or had votes
unrecorded in the disputed
congressional contest, com-
pared to only4,965 ofthosewho
heavily supported Republicans,
a difference of 2,485.
The contrast is especially
sharp given that Sarasota
County has 39,769 more vot-
ers registered as Republicans
than Democrats, a 16 percent
lead in registrations.
Test case
This discrepancy between
party-line voters is one rea-
son election experts continue
to question the final out-
come, and Jennings' advisors
Share demanding a more thor-
! ough examination of the
county's paperless electronic
Machines' software than has
been conducted to date.
Buchanan has recently
accused Jennings of enlisting.
"extreme elements" citing
the American Civil Liberties
Union to help pursue her
post-election challenge. He
has dismissed the nearly
S18,000-vore "undervote" as a
reaction to negative cam-
paigning in the race turning
off thousands of voters who'
then opted not to vote in the
race, an explanation experts
have dismissed.
But Jennings' lawyer,
Kendall Coffey, said getting to
the bottom of the machines'
problem, if possible, is not
merely a partisan exercise,
and their weaknesses must be
exposed before the 2008 pres-
idential election.
"I believe I won," Jennings
said. "But more importantly, the
people of this county need to
knowwhat happened."
Appeals likely
A federal agency last week
recommended banning the
paperless touch-screen mach-
ines from all U.S. elections
because of their extreme vul-
nerabilityto unidentifiable error
or malicious software alter-
ations.
Jennings has sued the
machines' manufacturer for
access to proprietary operat-
ing codes that could provide
answers.
Gore redux
On Nov. 22, the Sentinel
reported it enlisted Stanford
University electronic voting
expert David Dill to help ana-
lyze the county's post-elec-
tion data, and concluded the
disproportionate "undervote"
difference between Demo-
crats and Republicans proba-
bly cost Jennings the election.
It identified the strong
party line Democrat and
Republican voters as those
who supported either four
or five statewide candidates
from one party in races for
the U.S. Senate, governor,
attorney general, chief
financial officer and agri-
cultural commissioner.
The data showed 5,304
county voters who bypassed
the District 13 race supported
five statewide Democrats

Latest student survey is encouraging


Each year, thousands of Florida students
voluntarily participate in a statewide antiso-
cial behavior survey. Students from sixth
through 12th grades answer a battery of
questions about social behavior including
drug use and smoking.
Thankfully, there is some good news
across the state in every behavior measured.
Students were questioned on topics that
include: carrying a handgun; selling illegal
drugs; attempting to steal a vehicle; being
arrested; taking a handgun to school; getting
suspended; attacking someone with intent
to harm; and being drunk or high at school.
Of students surveyed regarding carrying a
handgun, 3.9 percent said they had carried a
handgun in the past year compared to 5.8
percent the previous year.
Selling illegal drugs was down from 7.9


Ideas worth considering


BOB VEDDER
hi. .' HER


A few weeks ago I passed
on some of the ideas that
were mentioned in our talks
with people running for
office. Here are some others.
Christine Jennings thought
we need a very high awareness
of and emphasis on conserva-
tion and the use of alternative
fuels. This would, in fact, bring
down the cost of oil.
She also thought we
should require immigrants to
speak the English language to
remain here, and that they
pay taxes. I guess she has seen
how illegal immigrants have
sucked California dry.
She also suggested that to
help make Social Security
financially stable, they lift the
cap on the amount of income
taxed for Social Security
Fund. This would make the
very rich shoulder more of the
burden.
Nancy Detert suggested
we need to give veterans
options to a hospital in our
district. She would make it
legal to get drugs from
Canada and would like to
consider a national cata-
strophic insurance fund to
help shoulder the burden of
major disasters.
On the immigration issue,
she feels strongly that
employers need to stop hiring
illegal immigrants and should
be penalized if they do. If we
cut off work opportunities
they won't come, or at least
they will come legally.
Jan Schneider would like
to see more incentives for the
use of alternative fuels,
including solar. She would
like to see the minimum wage
indexed so that it rises with
inflation.
On the local level issues
were quite diverse.
For instance, Donna Ber-
lin, running for judge, said
the judges don't have a com-
puter system and should
have, especially one linked to
the clerk's office. She felt this
could make for a lot more effi-
ciency. She also felt that we
need a bigger courthouse in


South County and the ability
to handle felonies here.
GeoffProffitt, also running
for judge, said the law library
needs to be upgraded; it is
weak.
Connie Mederos-Jacobs,
running for judge, thought
that when cases get settled at
the last minute there ought to
be a way to shift cases from
another judge rather than
have dead time.
Preston DeVilbiss and oth-
ers thought court records
should be available, with some
restrictions, on the Intemet He,
like most of the candidates,
thinkjudges should be appoint-
ed, although they all saw pitfalls
in that also.
Ernie Zavodnyik, running
for city council, felt there
should be a master plan for all
development. The compre-
hensive plan gives general
directions for growth densi-
ties but does not tie it all
together. He also thought all
Gulf Coast governments need
to be more active helping find
solutions to red tide.
Lisa Glenn, running for
school board, would like to
see a closer connection with
the legislative delegation, and
she feels that parent organi-
zations should work together.
Bob Long, running for
school board, felt that they
need to take a role in getting
4-year-olds to start literacy
training so that by the time
they came to school they were
not behind.
Shirley Brown, who won a-
school board seat, felt that
schools need to enforce the
dress code. Drug testing of
athletes was probably a good'
thing, she said.
Kathy Kleinlein, who was
re-elected to the school
board, would like the class-
size amendment changed to
make it a districtwide average
rather than a per-class num-
ber. This would give the
schools more flexibility in
dealing with fluctuations.
Carol Williams, also run-
ning for school board, works
at SCTI and said that the elec-
tricity is on all the time and
needs to be controlled better.
I hope some of these ideas
will be found to be worth
going forward with.

percent the previous year to 4.9 percent in
2005. Those who admitted to attempting to
steal a vehicle dropped from 4.5 percent to
2.8 percent. The number of students arrested
was down from 9,3 percent to 5.4 percent.
Beginning to see a positive pattern?
Taking a handgun to school of those sur-
veyed, only 1 percent said they had taken a
handgun to school. Its unfortunate that any
"yes" responses were recorded, but thankfully
the percentage is almost nonexistent.
Getting suspended was also down, to 14.6
percent compared to 19.3 percent previous
year. When asked about attacking someone
with intent to harm 11.7 percent responded
"yes" while the number previous year was
18.1 percent. The number of students who
admitted being drunk or high at school was
12.2 percent down from 15.5 percent in


2004.
It may be shocking to find results as high
as they are in some categories, especially car-
rying a handgun, at 3.9 percent; 4.9 percent
selling illegal drugs; or attacking someone
with intent to harm at 11.7 percent. However,
these are realities we must deal with.
Another reality is teen drug use. The
report shows that alcohol is by far the drug
most used by students including binge
drinking. After alcohol, cigarettes and mari-
juana are the most commonly used.
Depressants and prescription pain relievers
are also high on students' list of abused sub-
stances.
While there. are some who dismiss these-
test results as unreliable, feeling that stu-
dents too often give misleading answers -
and there is certainly a margin for error we

believe the big picture is a good snapshot of
teens' behavior. The statewide poll gives stu-
dents an opportunity to anonymously con-
fess some behavior they may not be proud
of.
Not only do the results give professionals
a starting point to devise programs to fight
this kind of behavior, but they help them pri-
oritize where to put their resources -
whether in anti-drug programs or anti-
smoking programs or other areas.
Finally, we hope the survey provides
talking points for parents and children. It is
good to have open discussions with your
child about these important behavioral
issues.
The latest results are encouraging, but
anyone who has a teenager or deals with
teens knows we have a long way to go.

Ways to make voting better


EDITOR:
As a Venice High graduate who was employed by IBM Corp.
for 28 years, I.can state unequivocally that systems can be
designed that significantly reduce carelessness compared to
the current voting system.
The problems people encountered last November are the
result of poor design, which caused user errors resulting in
"undervotes."
Putting multiple races on one screen page is a poor design.
I imagine that thousands of the undervotes were caused in this
way.
One simple thing that could be done on the current voting
machines is to require a vote on every race or question. This
could be done by placing an additional option on the race: "I
do not wish to vote on this race."
Through programming the voter would not be allowed to
move on unless a vote was made. But be forewarned: voters
will require more help and will take longer in the booth. In
District 13, this would have been a small price to pay for more
accurate election results.
An even better solution is the Oregon ballot. In this voting
method voters receive their ballot in the mail, vote at their
leisure and return the ballot by a certain date. Another benefit
of this simple solution is that it automatically has a recountable
paper ballot. I strongly urge that this type of system be
explored by the state of Florida.
Meanwhile, let's revote and let's do it better.

Time to wave
the white flag

EDITOR:
With a recount, then a re-
recount completed, and the
voting machines having
passed the various tests with
117,973 total ballots cast in a,
mock election with only a
variance of two votes, it is
time to move forward and
declare this election over. All
of these efforts proved the
voting machines did not mal-
function.
It takes a strong person.


with respect for our election
process to step up and con-
cede to the will of the voters
and tn-voters rather than
continuing to attempt to
define some artificial flaws in
our election process.

Two sides to
Israel support
EDITOR:
In a Religion column, Larry
Smith recently argued that
Christians must support
Israel in war and peace. I


would not presume to tell
adults what they must do, but
they might consider the fol-
lowing:
Israel destroyed Lebanon
because Hezbullah captured
two Israeli soldiers. At the
same time, Israel was holding
more than 8,000 captured
and imprisoned Palestinians,
including hundreds of
women and children.
Since the Lebanon inva-
sion, Israel has killed more
than 200 Palestinians, includ-
ing 50 children.
Israel has a legal system of
discrimination that rivals
apartheid South Africa's.
Palestinians are restricted in
movement, land ownership,
jobs and welfare benefits.
This is sadly ironic because
American Jews have probably
contributed more to racial
justice in America than any
other group.
Over the last 25 years,
Israel has been responsible
for the deaths of approxi-
mately 20,000 Lebanese civil-
ians.
Following Palestine's elec-
tions, Israel blockaded the
Palestinian territories, with-
holding food and medicine,
destroying its meager econ-
omy and leaving half of its
people unable to feed them-
selves. In response, an
emergency meeting of the
world's developed countries
recently raised $500 million
to relieve Palestine's desper-
ate plight.
Last year the World
Council of Churches urged
members to oppose Israel's


occupation of Palestinian ter-
ritory by boycotting compa-
nies profiting from that occu-
pation.
There is ample suffering
and blame on both sides of
the Israel-Palestine conflict,
but the U.S. media's pervasive
pro-Israel bias may skew fair-
minded people's perspectives
on this problem.
However, our uncondi-
tional support of Israel
undoubtedly recruits more
Islamic extremists than
Osama bin Laden ever could.

Voters were just
turned off
EDITOR:
Just a few simple words to
tell Christine Jennings: she is
a sore loser. She should know
that, "You can bring the horse
to the water, but you cannot
make him drink it!"
That's where the under-
votes came from.
We the voters went to the
polling stations but refused to
vote in retaliation of her dirty
campaigning, including those
daily harassing telephone
calls, usually to interrupt our
dinners.
We and probably many
other voters were fed up with
her calls. If she wants the
revote in District 13, she
should pay for it.
Why should our tax money
be used to satisfy a sore loser?

Fun is good for business


JIM CLINCH
GUEST (OL. MNI '

Prior to the Oct. 24 city
council meeting, the Venice
Area Chamber of Commerce
board of directors voted to
support a newly formed com-
munity organization, Venice 4
Positive Future (venice4pos
itivefuture.org), in its efforts
to make Tramonto Vista Park
more diverse and "family
friendly."
On Nov. 28 city council
agreed to move forward with
a modified version of the
original plan for this new
park, and I am hopeful we will
soon see picnic areas, volley-
ball and music concerts at
this unique waterfront venue.
Tramonto Vista is a brand-
new public park that will be
taking shape between the dog
beach and the fishing pier on
land that used to contain
Venice's wastewater treat-
ment facility and odiferous
sludge-holding ponds.
For those of us from the
Venice/Nokomis area who
remember when the gulf-side
sewer plant was in its ugly,
stinking glory, anything short
of a pork-rendering factory
would have been considered
a vast improvement. The idea
that this incredible eyesore
would be replaced by a nice
park suitable for small con-
certs and family activities
seemed so logical as to not
require much attention or
input from the community or
the chamber.
SThen along came the fun-
;Ikillers.
Amazingly, a last-minute
coalition of killjoys came
,together and shot down any
active use for this piece of
public land.
In spite of the fact that
Sharky's is on one side and
romping dogs are on the
other, city council was
swayed by the argument that
the area should be a "passive
park," free from any but the
most minimal human intru-
sion.
Now, let us all remember
this was not some pristine,
environmentally sensitive
land. It had been for the
love of Pete! a sewer plant!
Public dissatisfaction with
this council decision resulted
in the formation of Venice 4
Positive Future. This group is
not some kind of front organi-
zation for developers, and its
concern for a more appropri-
ate design of Tramonto Vista
Park is not proof of some
loony conspiracy theory to
attract hotels to the airport.
If- and it is a big "if" a
hotel decides to lease airport
land, does anybody in their
right mind think their deci-
sion would rest on where the
volleyball net is located or
how' many picnic shelters are
at Tramonto Vista?
Also, please note that this
new group is not a part of of or
affiliated with the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce.
Yes, its membership
includes many folks who also
belong to the chamber, but
since we have more than
1,200 member businesses
and associates (including
Gondolier Sun columnist Ed
Martin) and all employees of
member businesses are auto-
matically chamber members
themselves, it would be hard
to put together a group of
concerned citizens that did
not contain many VACC
members.
Venice 4 Positive Future
asked the VACC to support its
efforts and we were happy to
do so. Why? Because we sup-
port fun.


Fun is good for business.
People come to places that
are fun and, while there,
spend money in local busi-
nesses. People who live here
will choose to stay in town
and do fun things locally
rather than going to some
other community to spend
their money. At the chamber,
fun is serious business!
So who in the world would
oppose taking public land on
the beach and using it to cre-
ate a venue for concerts and
fun activities?
Not surprisingly, several of
the most vocal critics were
people who live on or near
Harbor Drive who simply do
not want anything done with
the park that might create
more traffic flow.
I appreciate their concern.
I happen to live in the same
.neighborhood and belong to
the same association as they
do. But John Nolen designed
Harbor Drive as a wide boule-
vard with a median because
he obviously intended it to be
a main north/south thor-
oughfare.
Forgive me for being blunt,
but if traffic on Harbor Drive
bothers you, maybe you
should have thought of that
before you bought your
house.
The usual folks were
rounded up by their leaders
and dutifully marched over to
the council meeting to, once
again, stand in vocal opposi-
tion to something good.
Fortunately, the changing
demographics here in South
County are working against
the "anti-everything" crowd
as the "baby boom" genera-
tion retires here and looks for
more activities, more night
life and more fun.
Today's younger, healthier,
more-active retirees are not
likely to be content with eat-
ing supper every night at 4
p.m. and watching reruns of
"Murder, She Wrote."
To its credit,, city council.
recognized the actual public
sentiment on this issue and
reversed its earlier decision.
The lesson here is that we
who support a growing local
economy and who watt
more, not fewer, entertain-
ment and recreational choic-
es must remain vigilant.


All it takes, apparently, is
for the negative element in
our community to show up at
a city council meeting with a
few of its regular supporters
and council will display a dis-
turbing tendency to go along.
Thankfully, Venice 4
Positive Future now exists to
counter this element. Also,
thankfully, our city council
members have the intelli-
gence and maturity to revisit
and reverse a bad decision.
Now we need to make sure
local government follows
through on its commitment
to develop Tramonto Vista in
a positive, functional way.
Your Venice Area Chamber
of Commerce is pleased to
have had a small part in sup-
porting the creation of a more
useful, active and "family
friendly" Tramonto Vista
Park. I hope to see you there
at a sunset concert in the not
too distant future.
Want to bet we see some of
those vocal opponents of the
park there enjoying it too?

Loosen up the limits on Pinebrook


W hy? I know that roads are
under state, city and inter-
state regulations, but I have a
hard time understanding why
U.S. 41, with all the construc-
tion, with lots of roads and
driveways entering it, is 45
mph. Pinebrook Road, with
no driveways, very few roads
and mostly a park, it's 30 mph.
Can anyone explain that? We
needed a north-south road
between 41 and 75 from
Laurel to Center and we final-
ly got one, but now people
don't use it because it's either
30 mph or you get a ticket.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Pinebrook
Road is 30 mph from Edmondson
Road south to Hatchett Creek
Boulevard, 35 from there to Center
Road. It's 40 mph from
Edmondson north to Laurel Road.
Shared blame. I must agree
with the letter to the editor in
your newspaper that the elec-
tion held in Sarasota County
was a total embarrassment,
not only here but throughout
Florida and probably nation-
ally again. The new system
seemed to have problems
from the get-go, pure and
simple. New technology
doesn't always mean better

and efficient operations.
They're always trying to rein-
vent the wheel at someone
else's expense. The local
municipality has an appoint-
ed election official that works
in conjunction with the coun-
ty's election staff- what were
they doing when all this was
going on? Did they find when
reviewing the equipment that
something wasn't right?
Everyone probably just kept
their fingers crossed and
hoped it would work. Each
municipality as well as the
county election officials
shares in this fiasco, and we
haven't heard a word from
any of them. Now we're prob-


ably going to have to pay well
over $3 million to update or
replace some of the equip-
ment that cost over $4 million
in 2001, and we're paying for
additional vote-counting and
maybe even a new election.
Again, I'm thankful that we
have the overinflated real
estate values that's a con-
tinuous stream of revenue for
a very inefficient government.
It's a real shame.

observers said.
Cause of the fire was not
able to be determined late
Friday afternoon. No damage
estimate was available.
Frustrated motorists
caught up in the traffic snarl
called the Venice Gondolier
Sun to vent and to find out
what alternate routes were
available.
Many tried taking
Pinebrook Road north from
Center Road and found traffic
moving like a clogged drain as
late as 4 p.m.
Others tried their luck with
Center Road to the South
Bridge and through town.
That also was a mess.
The bypass was opened
about 4:30 p.m., according to
the Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office.

Grants turn visions into reality
Sarasota County is giving North Sarasota County residents
the opportunity to improve their neighborhoods with funding
that can help bring their ideas to life. The Sarasota County
Neighborhood Grant program makes up to $12,000 available for
each neighborhood during a grant cycle. All it takes to put that
resource to work is attendance at a two-hour workshop to learn
the application process.
Representatives of the Neighborhood Grant program will conduct
the workshop from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 12, at the North
Sarasota Library, 2801 Newtown Blvd., Sarasota. Attendance at a
workshop is a prerequisite to apply for-the grant program. Space
is limited and reservations are required.
The workshop is open to representatives of any neighborhood
associations, homeowner associations and informal groups of
neighbors who wish to use the matching grant program to fulfill
needs in their communities that preserve character and value,
enhance safety, build neighborhood leadership or improve
environmental and physical health.
Neighborhood groups carl match the county grant funds with
cash, volunteer hours, direct donations by neighbors, other grant.
sources or by donations of materials and services. A maximum of
$200,000 is available twice per year.
The deadline to apply for funding during the current cycle is Feb.
19, 2007. For more information, call the Sarasota County Call
Center at 861-5000 or send an e-mail to neighbor@scgov.net.
Selby Library unwraps holiday
programs for kids
Selby Public Library is giving young people and their families a
variety of gifts during the December holiday season.
Many craft programs will be offered just in time for gift-giving

Recommended for all ages, this Craft-a-Cookie program will take
place at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Dec.13; and Thursday, Dec. 14 at 10

two hours.
Kids can create their own ceramic tile when they take part in the
"Tile-a-Rama" event, 2 p.m., Monday, Dec. 18. The experts from
S'Platters will be at the library to help young people create their
own one-of-a-kind tile, which they can paint with non-toxic paints.
The tiles will be glazed and kiln-fired. This program is designed for
ages 9-18 and is limited to the first 20 participants who register.
For more information contact the Sarasota County Call Center at

Surprising Venice kids are now 5-2 with victory Friday night.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

You'd think growing pains
would result in rough going in
the early season for Venice
High boys varsity basketball.
It's amazing how fast this
year's youthful bunch are
handling showtime.
The Indians improved
their record to 5-2 Friday
night with a 52-45 victory
over an athletic Bayshore
Bruin squad at the Teepee.
The Indians are 3-1 in
Class 5A District 12.
It was another unselfish
team effort for Steve
Cavallaro's warriors, who lost
starting guard Kyle Jutras to a
split chin in the game's first
minute. Scotty Brown and
Adam Reams filled in
admirably.
Freshman Trey Burton led
the way with 18 points. From
there, frosh guard Justin
Grant and reserve forward
Jack Curtis had seven points
each. Tyler Christian scored
sixpoints all from the line.
Kyle Abney and Brown had
five apiece.
Unsung hero Abney did a
super job battling Bayshore


big boys Hawkins and Travis
Washington underneath.
Venice trailed early but
scraped back to lead by one at
the half.
Things didn't look good in
the first few minutes, as
Bayshore ran out to a 10-2
lead behind dunks by Randy
Windman and Derrick
Hawkins.
The Indians didn't panic,
worming their way back.
Burton scored seven of his
points in the first quarter. The
Indians had it to a more man-
ageable 14-9 at session's end.
A 3-pointer by Curtis gave
Venice its first lead at 19-18.
Christian found Abney with a
quick pass inside to beat the
buzzer and give the Indians a
24-23 edge at intermission.
The Indians built on the
lead in the third quarter,
outscoring the Bruins 12-7 to
take a 36-30 edge into the
final session. Burton had six
points and Grant canned a
big three.
It was a case of holding
Bayshore at bay in the final
session. The Indians were 8-
for-12 at the free throw line
and Grant, Burton, Curtis and
Reams had field goals. Burton


had a couple of steals down
the stretch.
Venice will play Tuesday
night at Manatee. The Bruins
just got their football players
back.
The Venice junior varsity,
which suffered a tough loss to
North Port Wednesday,
defeated Bayshore 44-41. The
JVs improved to 3-2.
Anthony Hackett led the
way with 14 points. Adrion
Archer had five steals.

Another Trey has VHS fans buzzing


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice High has had some
tremendous athletes through
the years, but it's hard to
come up with a freshman
who has made an impact like
Trey Burton.
For example,when was the
last time a ninth grader start-
ed on both varsity football
and basketball?
In football, Burton was the
starting safety, also playing
some running back and quar-
terback.
Now it's basketball season,
and Burton is a starting for-
ward for Steve Cavallaro's
Indians. He scored a game
high 18-points Friday night to
lead Venice to a victory over
Bayshore.
Burton isn't intimidated by


opponents who are more
experienced, bigger and
stronger. He keeps a cool
head and sticks to his
strengths.
"Trey's mentality is way
beyond that of a freshman,"
said Cavallaro. "He's a special
kid."
Burton stands 6-3 but \vith
great leaping ability plays
even taller. He's a slasher to
the hole and can also pop for
three points from outside.
While he isn't a physical play-
er at least yet anyway he
can sneak inside and steal
rebounds. He also flashes
quickness and has good
anticipation, which adds up
to steals.
Burton is totally sold on
Cavallaro's team concept.
"One person can't win a
game," Burton said. "I'm ner-


vous before every game, but
I'm always that way and will
still be nervous before the
game when I'm a senior. I
hope to grow some more and
I'm working on getting
stronger."
Burton can now bench 225
pounds.
:He is a good snidenr, a
good sport on the court and a
gentleman off it.
The Indians are off to a 5-2
start surprising to some
considering how young the
team is.
"There's no attitudes," he
said. "We don't fight. We push
each other to be better play-
ers."
There's more good news on
the way for Venice High
sports fans. Younger brother
Clay will be an Indian next
year.


Girls improving,but Ranch still the one


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Sheldon' Chamberlain can
see hisVenice High girls varsi-
ty soccer team improving
match by match.
The Lady Indians still have
a way to go to catch up to
Lakewood Ranch.
Venice inched closer to the
Lady Mustangs Friday night
at a cold and blustery Powell-
Davis Stadium, but the jolly
Ranchers were able to leave
town with a 3-2 victory.
Lakewood Ranch defeated
the Lady Indians' earlier this
season by a 4-1 count.
"We're getting better,"
Chamberlain said. "You can
see it. The way we came back
in the final minutes after
going down by two goals. We
charged at them. The girls
wanted to win."
Venice saw its record go to
6-2-2. Ranch improved to 10-
3-1.
This second meeting
between the two didn't count
toward the district record.
Only the first matches go in
the standings. Venice still has
a chance for top seed for the
district tournament if
Manatee defeats Ranch this
coming Friday. Ranch was
tied by Charlotte while Venice
'beat Charlotte.
Venice led early in Friday
night's match against Ranch,
as sophomore Andria
Thomas punched home a
goal during a wild scrum in

Stadium. The Lady Indians put up a fight, but lost 3-2.


front of the Lady Mustangs
net.
It stayed 1-0 heading into
the second half.
Ranch woke up, scoring
three goals in a row. The Lady
Mustangs went up 2-1 with 17
minutes left and then led 3-1
with another goal with 10
minutes remaining.
Venice made things inter-
esting, as Kristina Swanson
wriggled a ball through the
Ranch line of defense. Emily
Cremisio got to it and slid a
shot into the net with seven
minutes left.
The Lady Indians had a
chance to tie it in the final two


minutes with a direct kick just
outside the box. Chelsea Rose
fired it right into the keeper's
belly
Lindsay Thompson had
two goals for Ranch, upping
her season's total to 17.
Natasha Pelton got the other
Lady Mustang goal.
"We're better at running off
the ball getting to open
spaces to receive the ball,"
said Chamberlain, who
coached college soccer at
Villanova. "We've been work-
ing hard on receiving air balls.
We are working on winning
all 50/50 balls heading the
ball. We don't want the girls to


be afraid to use their heads.
We do vertical jumping at
practice. We also want to get
air balls with our sternums.
Transition. Getting on the
attack quickly after winning a
ball and making recovery
runs."
The communication
between keep and sweeper
has also improved.
Chamberlain wants every-
one to get into the offense.
"We're generating more
shots from midfield," he said.
The Venice junior varsity
avenged an earlier loss to
Ranch with a 1-0 victory
Friday. Danae Havilland
scored on a 20-yarder in the
first half. Danielle Drennan
did a god job in goal. Right
halfback Allison Lewis gave a
super effort.
The Venice girls are at
home Tuesday night with
North Port coming to Powell-
Davis Stadium.

Sgt. Stone has her eye on Venice crime


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER


Ginger Stone, a police offi-
cer with the Venice Police
Department since June 1995,
was one of three officers
recently promoted to the rank
of sergeant, making her the
first female sergeant in the
department since 1979, when
Sgt. Inez Hatchitt retired.
She is now one of two
supervisors in the detective
bureau, and specializes in the
investigation of domestic vio-
lence and sex crimes.
Some 22 years ago, howev-
er, Stone started out as a certi-
fied optician. After gradua-
tion from Madison High
School near Detroit, the
Michigan native attended
business administration
classes at the Southeast
Oakland Vocational Educa-
tion Center and then became
an optician.
She worked in retail stores,
then got the chance to be
"company optician" for a
group of nursing homes in
Southfield, Mich.
"I particularly enjoyed the
companionship of the nurs-
ing home residents," said
Stone. "I was able to make a
lot of friends; and spend time
getting to know each one,
which made me feel more like
I was actually helping people
than I had experienced in
retail."
Moving from that to gov-
ernment work, she took a job
as secretary for the Highlands
Township Zoning Board of
Appeals, and then as investi-
gations secretary for the West
Bloomfield Police Depart-
ment detective bureau.


"I found that. I liked the
regimentation and organiza-
tion of those governmental
systems," Stone recalled,
"with meetings at scheduled
times and predictable duties.
And in the police department
especially, there was a real
sense of family and belonging
that I had not experienced on
the job before."
Role models
During her time in the
police department Stone met
two female detectives who
would be instrumental in
changing her career path.
"Sgt. Dawn Ferguson and
Officer Bridgett Ryan were
very professional and good at
their jobs," said Stone, "but
also very easy to get along
with and relate to."
"I began to wonder if
maybe I could d6 the kind of
work they were doing," she
said. "Then my supervisor, Lt.
Pitsos, encouraged me to give
it more serious consideration.
'You ought to do this!' he told
me. So I did."
At the same time, Stone
and her husband had decided
to move to Florida, where
they had visited her sister in
Port Charlotte many times.
The family found a home
near Port Charlotte and Stone
began working for the cam-
.pus police department at the
University of South Florida
(New College) in Sarasota.
"It seemed that most of the
campus police force at that
time were retired New York
cops," Stone said. "There
were two Sgt. McCue and
Officer Resch who really
encouraged me to go to the
police academy and get certi-


Sgt. Ginger Stone's office at the Venice Police Department reflects her professional priority, which is keeping track of the sexual
offenders shown on the posters and lists on her bulletin board. All of them live somewhere in the Venice area.


fled so I could work as a'
sworn officer."
Stone attended police
academy at the Manatee
County\ Vo-Tech in Braden-
ton, and went on to pass the
state certification test with
flying colors.
"McCue and Resch also
told me that Venice had the
best city department in the
area," she said. "Even though
I didn't know.anyone there,
Venice was the only place I
applied. I was happy when
they chose me, and I've been
happy ever since."
Gut-wrenching
Like most junior officers
starting out, Stone spent her
first few years as a patrol offi-


cer on the midnight shift,
usually working from 11 p.m.
to 7 a.m.
"One of the first cases I
worked on was the rape of a
lady in her 70s. That was a
gut-wrenching, investigation,
but she was an excellent wit-
ness who was able to give us
an abundance of details she
had observed. With some
good criminalistics and de-
tective work, we were able to
Struck the guy down and make
:an arrest, which held up in
court." .
Stone has established a
reputation in the department
for both her skill at working
with the victims- and their
families, 'and her determina-
tion to put offenders in


prison.,
As a result of that intensity,
combined with many hours
of specialized training, she
has been the department's
domestic violence coordina-
tor for several years.
Her regular duties include
periodic. unannounced face-
to-face contacts with anyarea
residents who are listed as
registered sexual offenders or
predators. She may visit them
at their home or workplace,
but her intention is to make
sure they are abiding by the
rules and know they are
.under police scrutiny.
Good direction
As a detective sergeant
Stone will continue in her role


as an investigator, but will
also be mentoring some of
the other officers in the
department in dealing with
sexual and domestic violence
crimes.
"Chief Williams also had a
strong background in these
areas before coming to
Venice," Stone said, "so she
has a very progressive vision
in regard to the investiga-
tion, enforcement and pros-
ecution of these offenses to
the full extent of the law.
"Under Chief Williams'
leadership," she concluded,
"I think Venice Police
Department is headed in a
really good direction. I'm
glad to be in a position to be
part of it."

SBefore
becoming pregnant, a
woman's body weight
centers over her pelvic area
and hips. Once she becomes
Pregnant and the baby grows, the
center of gravity gradually shifts,
with more weight thrust in front of
the hips. This shift leads to changes in
Sthe alignment of the spine. And, as the
Suterus enlarges and expands forward,
the center of gravity is displaced, which
could cause muscle cramps and nerve
pain. These changes in posture put more
strain on the lower back and pelvic
areas. If a w6man goes into pregnancy
with poor spinal alignment, it may
possibly worsen, setting the stage for
increased discomfort during, labor and
difficulty during delivery. Regular
chiropractic examinations during
pregnancy help ease discomfort
Through delivery.

P.S. Lower back.pain is one of the most
common complaints of pregnant women.

Venice Archives Christmas tree


decorated by VES Students


SUN PHOTO BY SUSAN CAIRO
SThe Christmas tree at the Venice Archives is decorated with
ornaments made by the first-grade gifted students at Venice
SElementary School describing what they like best about Venice.


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER .


Students put a lot of
thought and creativity into
making ornaments for the
Chiistnia [iree at the Venice
Archives and Area Historical
Collection.-


Each decoration was creat-
ed by a Venice Elementary
School first-grader. The orna-
ments were made with a
Venice theme.
Shari Valencic-Ursel, their
teacher, askIed them what
they like best about Venice.
"We wanted to know what


their view of Venice was and
asked them to show it in their
artwork," Valericic-Ursel said.
Students came up with
pictures about sharks' teeth,
jetties, the beach and
McDonalds.
"The children made some
interesting and creative
choices," she said.
Antique toys
The tree is just one part of
the Christmas exhibit at the
archives. There is also a col-
lection of antique toys on dis-
play for the holidays.
'A lot of these toys many of
today's children have never
heard of," said Beverly
Osnowitz, volunteer at the
archives.
Many of the toys were
donated from the personal
collections of the volunteers.
"Did you know that
Lincoln logs were originally
made of real wood?" said
Osnowitz.
Among the antique toys
displayed are a collection of
teddy bears, an old phono-
graph, a toy sewing machine,
a hula hoop and games.
The most beautiful item is
a porcelain doll from the per-
sonal collection of Dorothy
Korwek, archivist for the city
ofVenice.
In February, the exhibit will
feature circus memorabilia.
The mission of the
archives is to collect and pre-
serve, historical and archeo-,
logical material for Venice,
Nokomis, Laurel and Osprey,
whose histories have been
interwoven since 1867.
You can e-mail
Susan Cairo at scairo

benefit for the center.

and Pam Capone
make bows for the
VAC holiday decoti
project.


n- less than three
hours, a dozen Venice Art Center volunteers turned out 12 dec-
orated Christmas wreaths, 12 centerpieces with wreaths and candles and
several decorated miniature trees
Working like a well-run assembly line in one of the studios at the art center,
the women began wth man-made plain wreaths and trees and, guided by VAC s premier
Christmas tree decorator Tanya Sauppe, made ornate flonst-style bows and fastened bows and
store-bought decorations to the wreaths and trees.
Pam Capone used a bow-making gadget to turn out the large bows, which had at least
eight loops, while Bonnie Kaiser, Barbara Freeman and others coordinated ribbons and rim-
mings for their wreath projects. Over in another corner, Marianne Warford worked her artistic : .:
magic on several tabletop candle holders Wihin less than two hours, all the wreaths were fin- ,
ished and priced by Patry Jones Then they were displayed in the main gallery of the VAC where they
will be on sale for the season, with the proceeds benefiting the center.
Next the volunteers turned their attention to the remaining candle holders and small tabletop trees .
Bonnie Kaiser broke apart some decorative floral pics to use pieces more in keeping with the scale ot the j
small trees Francine Milford decorated her tree in shadesofgold.
As each item was completed, Sauppe gave i an inspection to make sure all the bows and trimmings
were well fastened As each one passed inspection or got an extra bit of something, it too was priced .,,
for sale.
Wreaths are selling for 540 each, tabletop trees for $65 and candleholders for $45 each, plus tax
Also on sale at the VAC is a fully decorated Christmas tree, created by Tonya Sauppe. Festooned
in ribbons and bows and gilded ornaments, the designed tree is priced at $1,800, plus tax, inclu-
sive of all the trimmings.
The tree Sauppe created last year sold for 52 000 to Paul and Lynn Moselyof
Venice.

If you meet a bear or live in Florida black bear country.


LARRY ALLAN
FRESH AIR COLUMNIST

I'd consider it a cause for
rejoicing. Maybe you would
not. You could get notification
- "You live in bear country!"
- from the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission. This notification is
part of a broad educational
effort by those who know
Florida black bears and their
behavior. The commission
wants to reduce and prevent
conflicts between people and
bears in our communities.
Bears are naturally shy.
They actually avoid people
whenever they can. But with
some 16 million human
inhabitants now, it's getting
more and more difficult for
Florida black bears to avoid
us.
No matter where you
might encounter a bear, in
your neighborhood or on a
trip somewhere, here are a
few tips the commission
shares to help us be "bear
aware:"
* Anything that attracts dogs,
cats or raccoons also can
attract bears!
* Store trash in a secure area
until the morning of.yqur

* Always bring pet food inside
your residence.
* Clean your grill thoroughly,
and store it in a secure (bear-
proof) area.
* Take down bird feeders if
there's a bear in your area.
Remember, anything that
smells like food will attract
bears. And, unfortunately,
bears that a 'ie to get


human food soon learn to
associate people with food.
They lose their natural timid-
ness. The next, step for these
people-food-oriented bears is
often confrontation with
humans. They'll even hang
around people, hoping.
Black bears belong in
Florida. They're part of our
natural heritage. But we must
be aware, and we must allow
bears to remain wild i\awa\

you'd like more information
about the Be Bear Aware pro-
gram, you can contact the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission at
(352) 732-1225, or at florida-
conservation.org/bear on the
Internet.
I may be a bit stange, but
I'm delighted when I see a
bear. I know that all people
don't feel die same wa\: Ify ou


do see a bear, stay calm and
stay away from the bear. The
fact that the bear is there is
not, of itself, a problem. Bears
travel a lot, and the bear you
see is, more than likely just
Passing through. Expect that
bear to move on, unless food
is available.
Do not feed the bear. If you
do feed a bear, please under-
stand that your kindness will
probably lead to the bear's


death because you are teach-
ing that bear to turn to people
when it's hungry. When that
problem persists, the authori-
ties usually have to destroy
the pesky bear.
If you do have a close
encounter of the bear kind:
* Remain upright stand tall
- if you're wearing a jacket or
loose shirt, grab the tail of the
garment in both hands and
lift it high overhead to appear
even larger.
* Avoid direct eye contact.
* Back away slowly don't
turn and run, which can
cause bears to instinctively
chase you.
* Speak in a calm, assertive,
assuring voice.
* Loud noises radios, whis-
tles, clanging pots and pans
together can scare away
bears.
* Do not place yourself in the
bear's escape route be sure
to give the animal a clear path
of escape, and the time to use
that path.
* When frightened, black
bears will climb a nearby tree.
They'll stay up there as long
as humans and dogs are
around.
* If the bear isn't aware of you,
leave the area quietly.
If you want to help the
Florida black bear survive -
and it does need our help -
you might want to consider
switching your auto license
plate to the "Conserve
Wildlife" plate with the black
bear on it. That special fund
helps all our state's wildlife,
especially by providing much-
needed-protected habitat.

University sites offer different visions


Some sites would require new 'village'


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

The five sites proposed for
a Florida Gulf Coast Uni-
versity satellite campus
essentially offer FGCU a
choice between two visions.
One option calls for the
campus to be located amid a
new village to be built in what
are now expansive rural areas.
The villages, proponents
believe, would be located in
places where growth is des-
tined to occur in the future,
and the sites could be
reached within 30 minutes
via area highways from other
cities in the region.
The other option calls for
the campus to be located on a
smaller, urban site close to
the Punta Gorda/Port
Charlotte metropolitan area,
where most of Charlotte
County's existing student
population currently resides.
FGCU's 12-member Char-
lotte site selection advisory
committee meets Friday to
hear presentations on the
sites. The all-day meeting will
begin at 9 a.m. at the Mid-
County Library on Forrest
Nelson Bofilevard.
Only one of the proposed
sites offers the urban option,
the 165-acre Ansin site. That
site is situated on a 332-acre
tract owned by Edmund
Ansin, a Channel-7 Miami
executive who, 15 years ago,
proposed a 600-acre site for
FGCU's main campus.
SThe Ansin site is located
between Taylor Road and U.S.
41 about three miles south of
downtown Punta Gorda. The
site is 2-1/2 miles north of the
North Jones Loop Road inter-
change with 1-75.


Don Ross, an environmen-
tal consultant who is repre-
senting Ansin in the site
selection process, said census
information demonstrates
the need for the campus at
the Punta Gorda location.
According to FGCU's own
satellite campus study, only
209 Charlotte County resi-
dents applied to enroll in
FGCU's main campus south
of Fort Myers last year. By
comparison, 1,731 Lee
County residents and 637
Collier County residents
applied to enroll in FGCU.
Yet, the study also indi-
cates 61 percent of Charlotte
County's high school gradu-
ates desire post secondary
education a higher per-
centage than either Lee or
Collier counties, where about
50 percent desire college edu-
cation.
And Charlotte County's
2006-07 senior class has more
than 1,500 students, about 50
percent more than FGCU
estimated in drafting their
study.
Also, population growth
projections for Charlotte
County show the the county's
population of those aged 18-
24 is expected to increase
from 10,673 in 2005 to 15,870
by 2030. Those aged 25-44
also are expected to grow
from 42,691 to 63,481 in the
same period.
The numbers indicate "an
unmet need that would be
remedied by a Satellite
Campus at this location," the
Ansin proposal states.
Most of the potential stu-
dents in the county now
reside in affordable housing
neighborhoods located in
Port Charlotte and Punta


Gorda, said Ross.
They likely won't be able to
afford more expensive hous-
ing in new villages, which are
typically designed for affluent
retirees, he argued.
"All these proposals, they
look serious and they should
all be considered seriously,
but location is the key issue,"
said Ross. "Location is played
out every time a kid gets in a
car to go school."
Eagle
The Ansin proposal also
points out the Eagle site,
which has been touted by
* FGCU as the benchmark to
meet, is located 10 miles east
of the city.
Eagle acquired the so-
called Stock site, which had
previously been offered to
SFGCU by Stock Development
and Equity Partners.
Eagle proposes the cam-
pus be located on a 150-acre
parcel amid a 1,200-acre tract
on County Road 74. The tract
. is also adjacent to a 6,513-
acre site proposed for devel-
opment as a "New University
Rural Community.",
"The New University Rural
Community will be planned
around and focused upon the
FGCU Charlotte Satellite
Center, in a manner identical
with traditional southern uni-
versity campuses such as
Auburn, Gainesville and
Athens," states the proposal.
SFGCU may have. a legal
obligation to support Eagle's
proposed site. That's because
Eagle purchased a contract
signed Dec. 21, 2005 between
Stock Development, Equity
Partners and FGCU.
In the agreement, Stock's
team offered the site plus $5
million in cash and more
than $5 million in future
assessments in exchange for


FGCU's agreement to support
Stock's efforts to win county
approval for a "university dis-
trict" on the Stock site.
The contract also states
that FGCU "shall actively sup-
port and reasonably cooper-
ate with Grantor (Eagle) to
obtain the Final Approval,
and FGCU's failure to do so
shall be deemed a default
under this Contract."
Crystal
Another rural site was pro-
posed some 10 miles north-
east of the Eagle site by.
Crystal and Associates.
The Crystal site would
attract "a new population, not
an existing population, or
maybe the existing popula-
-tion will migrate to our com-
munity," said Christian Giler,
president of Giler Develop-
ment Inc., a principle in
Crystal.
Crystal hopes to. bring the
university to a proposed
8,000-acre development that
straddles the Charlotte-
DeSoto county., line. The
developer, Omega Landmark
Development, has been
working for the past year to
acquire the land and apply for
regional impact approvals
from the proposed construc-
tion of 18,900 residences on
the site.
Giler called the site a "win-
win" for FGCU and the devel-
oper. The site would attract
students from both DeSoto
and Charlotte counties, .he
pointed out.
Hudson Sun-River
The Hudson Sun-River site
is located a mile east of U.S.
17 and north of Washington
Loop Road. The 150-acre pro-
posed campus would lie
within a 2,458-acre cattle
ranch that Sun-River is work-


ing to acquire from the
Hudson family for develop-
ment.
The location is "superior"
because it lies within a "high-
ly active development corri-
dor ... virtually ready for
development," states the pro-
posal.
The proposal also claims
that the county has a deficit of
8,000 .residential units.
However, due to a fall in the
real estate market, some
12,000 existing residential
units are currently for sale, in
the county.
With FGCU's campus as an
economic "engine," the
Hudson site would draw
business, industrial and resi-
dential development to the
surrounding area, states the
proposal.
Hudson's proposal also
notes that the site would be
located adjacent to a 600-acre
industrial zone in. DeSoto
County where the Wal-Mart
distribution center is located.
The industrial campus,
which provides employment,
research facilities and poten-
tial students, creates an
"advantageous synergy,"
states Hudson's proposal.
"Arguably, the 'Village'
vision is quickly becoming a
reality," states Hudson.
Land solutions
Another village is pro-
posed. at the Land Solutions
site, located east of 1-75 near
the Lee County line in south-
ern Charlotte County.
"Yes, it is in southern
Charlotte County, but FGCU
does' t just draw from Punta
Gorda," said Ron Inges, a rep-
resentative of Land Solutions.
Because the Land site is
located near 1-75 and the Del
Prado extension, it would
would draw students from


North Port, Cape Coral and
LaBelle, Inge said.
However, the site calls for
an 1-75 interchange to be
built at Nalle Grade.
Traffic engineers for Kitson
& Partners called for the state
to study building an inter-
change at that location to
serve the Babcock Ranch
development.
"There is a proposal and it
is in the FDOT plans," said
Inges.
However, Mark Gumula,
director of the Charlotte
County Metropolitan Plan-
ning Organization, said the
construction of an inter-
change at Nalle Grade is far
from certain.
"That interchange in no
way has been approved,
except that it has been shown
on a DOT master plan as a
potential place to put it," said
Gumula.
To get the interchange
approved could take years
and tens of millions of dollars,
he said.

A tasty alternative to fish oil


SUZY COHEN, R.PH.
(OLLUMI ,ST


QUESTION: I have heard that
fish oil is good for heart health, but
when I eat fish, my throat starts to
close and I'm certain that I'm aller-


gic to seafood. Will fish oil supple-
ments create this allergic reaction
as well? What do you suggest? -
M.C., Boca Raton, Fla.

ANSWER: If your reaction is
that severe, then avoid sup-
plementation with fish oils.
You are right though, the
essential fatty acids found in
fish oils are good for the
heart, and that's what most
people have heard about. But
EFAs are good for many con-
ditions, so I take a supple-
ment every day.
There is research to support
the ability of EFAs to boost
mood, improve cholesterol
ratios, protect our brain and
memory, relieve joint pain,


improve digestion, ease consti-
pation, fight infections and
smooth out wrinkles. See why I
like EFA supplements so
much?
If you'd like to take EFAs
but you are allergic to fish or
don't want to use an animal-
derived product, then con-
sider black currant oil as an
option. Black currants con-
tain a lot of gamma linoleic
acid, which provides power-
ful anti-inflammatory sub-
stances when taken in nor-
mal dosages. Don't overdo
anything, though not even
good stuff.
Black currants are little
fruits that provide EFAs that
are particularly helpful in


reducing inflammation,
especially in gals. What
comes to mind here is all
that breast tenderness that
women get right before their
period, and other PMS prob-
lems in general. Taking even
one gelcap a day of this sup-
plement (1,000 mg) can
make a considerable differ-
ence in your overall health.
Black currant products are
also found as jams and teas.
Since they're fruit- rather than
fish-derived, you can make
tastier things out of them.
While w6're on the subject
of PMS, you could add vita-
min B6 (about 50 mg daily),
magnesium (about 100 mg
daily) and vitamin E (about


400 mg daily) and really see
some terrific cramp-reducing
and mood-boosting benefits.
But back to black currants.
They have as many powerful
antioxidants as blueberries;
maybe more. They also have
more vitamin C than
oranges, plus they contain
anthocyanins the plant
pigment that provides anti-
cancer protection because it
fights free radicals.
So just because you can't
take fish oils doesn't mean
that you can't get a good
source of EFAs. You can also
look at other oils, such as
evening primrose oil and
borage oil.
I like EFAs that are pro-


duced from quality compa-
nies, and there are many. A
few that come to mind are
Nordic Naturals, Solaray,
Nature's Sunshine, Vitamin
Shoppe, Health from the Sun

WORDS WORTH


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I recently purchased
hearings aids and have gone

back many times for
numerous adjustments. The
aids seem loud enough but
words are still not clear.
Why?
A. Unfortunately, your problem
is not'an unusual' one. Many
times hearing aids are fit by
salespersons who don't
understand how to choose the
proper size amplifier for a
particular hearing loss.
Additionally, they don't know
how to perform the proper
testing to ensure the patient is
hearing properly after being fit.
For these reasons, its important
that you seen an Audiologist to
have your hearing level
properly evaluated and to
obtain your fitting prescription.
If you have this information,
shopping for the appropriate
hearing aid becomes much less
confusing. In your case, it
could be that the hearing aid's
amplifier is not strong enough
to correct for your degree of
hearing loss. There is a simple
test which can be performed'
call a "Real Ear Measurement"
or REM which can determine if
your hearing aid amplified is
the proper size. Call
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. at
492-4327 to schedule your
REM test today.

VIRGINIA DEUPREE
*,'," : . t


'Tis the time for giving, and
no seasonal gift could have
been more heartwarming
than the one my friend,
Caroline, brought to me two
days before Thanksgiving.
Caroline comes to visit me
every Thursday and I discov-


ered she was an exceptionally
good cook, so I had been pester-
ing her to see when she was
going to make some turkey
dressing. Once when I was at
my son's home, I didn't want
anything to eat except his Sally's
dressing. and I discovered
Caroline's was similar.
* Lo and behold on this
Tuesday, she brought me an
entire turkey dinner, com-
plete with a glass of wine and
a piece of my favorite crusty
bread.
The turkey was moist and
delicious, the dressing made
with some kind of sausage,
dried cranberries and apri-
cots and fresh-cut apples. It
was as good as Sally's.
There was acorn squash,
freshly baked with brown
sugar and butter, just as I


used to do at home. What I
raved about most was the
cranberry chutney. She
,brought dessert, but I was too
full to eat it.
All this she brought in a
basket and warmed it in my
microwave and spread out
before me, helping me find
things because I cannot see
anything on my plate.
I was so ecstatic about the
gift that I made a nuisance
out of myself telling everyone.
So, first, I called Caroline to
see if I could share the cran-
berry chutney recipe with my
children, and then I called her
to see if I could share it with
all of you.
It would be a lovely gift to
take to a hostess or to anyone
for that matter. It would be
good on chicken as well as


turkey and I'could even see it
on steak So, here it is:
2 cups cranberries
1 tart apple, peeled, cored
and chopped
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup ,snipped, diced
apricots
1/8 tsp. each ginger, all-
spice and dry mustard
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp. salt
In a saucepan combine all
ingredients. Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer
uncovered 15 minutes, stir-
ring frequently. Spoon into
jars, cover,.seal and refriger-
ate or freeze. Makes 2 cups.
When you live in a place
for seven'years where they
cook for many, a treat of
home-cooked foods means


so much.
Two years ago, on a similar
vein, my friend Milly made
me a large mincemeat pie for
my Dec. 23 birthday. Milly,
who always tries to make
food beautiful, had even
made musical notes out of
pie dough and placed them
on the outside edge. She had
bought a large jar of
Nonesuch mincemeat you
know, the kind with real rum
in it.
Most people younger than
I have never tasted a mince-
meat pie, and they don't know
what they are missing. That's
because it was ,a traditional
dish, usually served after a
Thanksgiving or Christmas
dinner.
To appreciate a mince-
meat pie, I think it should be


served after a bowl of soup or
a salad, because it is a very
filling dessert.
Back when a woman
canned mincemeat for winter
pies, the recipe called for
chopped beef, suet, currents,
raisins, citron, lemon rind,
orange peel, spiced apples
and even red cherries. It was
an old recipe for canning
mincemeat.
So in case I forget it later, I.
wish you all a very Merry
Christmas

Birds flock to marshland in New York's Finger Lakes


BY BEN DOBBIN
GUEST WRITER


Two American bald eagles
perch on the high branches of
a dead tree, their yellow eyes
trained on muskrats nibbling
cattail shoots in shallow
Tschache Pool.
As the autumn migration
beckons, a great feeding fren-
zy is under way at the
Montezuma Wetlands Com-
plex: A solitary great blue
heron stalks fish and frogs,
blizzards of sandpipers and
plovers peck in mud flats for
crustaceans, kestrels swoop
down on field mice.
For all its natural beauty,
the swampy sanctuary in
western New York relies a
great deal on human inter-
vention. Its caretakers set
fires, spray chemicals, build
dikes and alter wetland levels
to improve nesting and feed-
ing conditions for the million
or more birds and waterfowl
that drop in each year.
Why all the tinkering? To
offset damage by earlier gen-
erations intent on annihila-
tion.
All about the land
A century ago, the 40,000-
plus-acre Montezuma Marsh
was one of North America's
largest habitats for migratory
birds. It was then drained by
canal builders and farmed
vigorously for onions, pota-
toes, cabbage. In the mid-
1950s, an interstate highway
was built right through the
'middle of it.
Not only did it survive the
onslaught but this recycled
tapestry of meadows, ponds,.
f~4'bland and -forests in
drumlin-dotted country near
Lake Ontario has swelled to


17,000 acres from a 6,400-
acre plot rescued in 1937 by
the U.S. government.
With political forces lining
up in its favor, it might double
in size again inside 30 years.
The rich, glacier-formed
"muckland" exposed to
sunlight after New York's
canal system Was expanded
in the early 1900s is
nowhere near the agricultural
mecca it once was. And so
dozens of farmers, many in
sore need of retirement nest
eggs, have been cashing in -
and in accelerating numbers
since the 1990s.
"It will never be farmland
again and, always being a
farmer, I hate to see that hap-
pen," said Neil Malone, 60,
who is hauling in his final
corn-and-soybean harvest in,
Savannah, a swamp-ringed
town of 1,800 people, and
turning his 1,100-acre farm
over to New York state. "I'm
going to miss the hell out of
it."
Agrarian land has fetched
$1,200 to $1,500 an acre of
late, and the highest bidders
are invariably the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service, the state
Department of Environ-
mental Conservation and,
occasionally, environmental
stewards such as The Nature
Conservancy. They view the
wetlands as invaluable not
only for wildlife but a bur-
geoning band of creatures
known as eco-tourists.
"Usually we talk about
land-use changes as housing
developments taking over -
you have a field and, all of a
sudden, you're growing con-
dos, This is sort of the
-reverse," said Tom.]asikoff,
who manages Mlontezuma
National Wildlife Refuge. "We


people need this solitude too.
As there are more human
beings in the world and less
natural areas, the places
we've conserved are going to
just become that much more
important."
Help
A 1986 waterfowl-manage-
ment accord with Canada
and Mexico identified the
refuge as one of the conti-
nent's key hubs for migratory
birds, triggering concerted
efforts by federal, state and
private interests tb buy back
up to 36,000 acres of the orig-
inal marsh and restore the
ecosystem as much as
that's possible.
As it fills out a split of
9,000 federal acres and 8,000
state acres the complex is
becoming an increasingly
vital feeding, resting and
nesting ground on the.
Atlantic Flyway, a superhigh-
way for ducks and geese,
shorebirds, songbirds and
raptors traveling; between
Canada and the Eastern
seaboard or points south.
Its dozen pools have been
lined with embankments to
keep water from flowing into
the state Barge Canal: Some
are slowly drained or flooded
in spring or fall to create
widely diverse habitats, draw-
ing in more than 300 species
of birds that dabble, dive,
wade or walk' along the
water's edge in search of prey.
Similarly, grasslands are
burned, mowed or replen-
ished to keep invasive weeds
at bay, improve nesting for
mallard ducks, harriers and
bobolinks and foraging areas
for hiwks'and owls hunting
for rabbits and voles.
S"They're all God's creatures


and we've got to respect
them," said LaRue St. Clair,
80, who relies on a scope, a
camera, keen eyesight and
inventory logs to keep track of
the birds as they come and
go.
Retired from grinding feed
,for dairy farmers, St. Clair
began his volunteer job after
his wife of 44 years, Athena,
died in 1993. "I would say
there's no better therapy for
anyone going through trou-
ble than this right here," he
said.
Appreciation
Latticed with 30 miles of
walking trails and a 3 1/2-
mile gravel drive, Montezuma
attracts about 160,000
humans each year. The air is
abuzz with twittering, cawing
and warbling a constant,
albeit soft cacophony and
yet 9-year-old Christina
Samela, visiting from New
Haven, Conn., is struck by the
stillness.
"It's kinda like when I go
into the library. I feel like I'm
supposed to be here, like I
belong," she said.
"You start to realize
nature's not in any hurry,"
echoed David Cliffel, 40, a
teacher in Glenmoore, Pa., as
he stood on the visitor-center
deck. Then his gaze was
drawn across the Main Pool
to the horizon, where an end-
less flow of.traffic whizzed by
on the four-lane New York
State Thruway.
"Of course, people are in a
hurry back over there," he
said, laughing. "But this area
reminds me that the whole
,cycle is still going, that there's
:;a place for thep bi[d:,..*y,'en
amidst all the development'
we get. More and more wet-


lands in this region have been
drained and changed and
altered."
Montezuma turned heads
in 1976 when hand-raised
,bald eagles were released
here in the first restoration
program of its kind in North
America. That success coin-
cided with the quickening
demise of agriculture.
Where scores of farmers
once worked Savannah's
fields, there are just eight left.
"I got a son and he didn't
want any part of it you're
gambling a lot of money for a
small return," said Malone,
whose farm will eventually be
converted back to wetlands
and wildflowers. "I guess if
you're into watching birds
and swamp creatures, there's
a lot of good things to see."
Town Supervisor Don
Colvin, 79, whose father
raised five children on 28
acres of muckland, sold his
own 190-acre farm in 1999.
"Sometimes I wish I had it
back," he said wistfully as he
drove up in his pickup, then
added more firmly: "This is
going to put Savannah on the
map."
Colvin, who's been elected
supervisor no fewer than 24
times since 1959, used all his
political wiles to get an
Audubon Nature Center built
on the edge of the farm. The
$2.7 million building opens to
the public in October and a
mile of trails already extends
into woodland around 30
acres offlooded fields.
Keeping the public
engaged is a crucial mission
plans are afoot to build a
scenic, qyerlqok, along ,the,..
Thruway, which ,carries 16
million people a y'ear. by
2010. In contrast with largely


unaltered, million-acre wa-
tersheds in the West or
Alaska, Montezuma relies on
an unusual blend of bulldoz-
ers and biologists.
"It seems the more natural
the landscape is, the less
extreme one needs to be in
the management," Jasikoff
said. "If we could restore the
whole ecosystem, then you're
talking about shutting the
Thruway down, closing the
canal, rerouting Conrail and
underground pipelines.
You're talking 400 years of
development here. It's impos-
sible."
And yet wildlife is prolifer-
ating.
"Chemicals in the marsh
are a real concern," Jasikoff
said. "But we're watching the
top of the food chain, eagles
and ospreys, and they're just
doing wonderful. The birds
adapt.":

Holiday lights brighten up Main Street U.S.A. in the Magic
Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
Guests can enjoy the display as a part of the Disney's Magical
Holidays celebration.


STAFF REPORT

Imagine being grand mar-
shal in a Walt Disney World
parade. Or getting the royal
treatment at Walt Disney
World, including staying
overnight in a royal bed-
chamber in Cinderella's
Castle.
It's no childish reverie.
Since Oct. 1, Disney has been


making a lot of dreams come
true with its "Year of a Million
Dreams" celebration.
Altogether, a million
dreams some small, some
large will be awarded dur-
ing the year to randomly cho-
sen guests. A few will be expe-
riences that money can't buy,
like a stay in Cinderella's
Castle or a trip around the
world to lead a parade in


every Disney resort. Most, of
course, will be more modest.
The promotion is qne of a
number of features to tempt
Florida. travelers, from a new
riverboat cruising the Intra-
coastal Waterway out of
Daytona Beach to scuba div-
ing on the world's largest arti-
ficial reef, a newly sunk 888-
foot aircraft carrier off the
Pensacola coast.
There are plenty of reasons
to head for Florida this sea-
son. Except for Christmas
week, hotel and resort prices
are at their lowest in this slack
season, deals are plentiful,
and tourist sites and theme
Sparks are blessedly uncrowd-
ed.
Universal's Islands of
Adventure new High in the
Sky Seuss Trolley Trair Ride
glides its way through seven
specially created Dr. Seuss
scenes.
Walt Disney World has
retooled its Pirates of the
Caribbean attraction to add
characters and features from
the recent "Curse of the Black
Pearl" movie. Also coming
this fall are two new attrac-
tions a musical stage show
and an undersea ride -
based on the "Finding Nemo"
movie.
Fall is also when cruise
prices drop to their lowest
levels. A quick scan of prices
offered by online cruise agen-
cies show such bargains as a
seven-night Caribbean cruise
starting at $399 and a 10-
nighter at $849. Reposi-
tioning cruises offer longer
trips at lower prices as ships
move from Europe to the
Caribbean for the winter sea-
son.

IUD VENICEGO NUIDO1LIER SUIN


A lesson learned


DICK HARRISON
COLUMNIST

"Mister, how many peas
will it take to fill that water
tower?"
"Sir, just one, Sir, if it's large
enough, Sir," I replied using
the standard answer we lower
classmen were required to
give when quizzed on "Cadet
Knowledge." I had been
caught by the upper class
cadet officer we called 'Lt.
Bunny Hop' while running
the nightly gauntlet before
making it into our barracks
after evening mess.
"I can't hear you," he sing-
songed back to me my cue
to repeat the answer in a
louder voice than before. This
would sometimes go through
several repetitions until the
upper classman was satisfied
with the volume or decided
on some further fun at the
lower classman's expense.
"Just so you'll remember to


speak up when addressing an
officer, you'd better bunny
hop twice around the quad-
rangle," he commanded,
meting out his usual punish-
ment. "Now, hop to it!
As future officers and gen-
tlemen, despite our positions
at the bottom of the Air Force
Cadet totem pole, we were
accorded some special perks.
We did not pull KP and at all
meals, we were seated and
served by enlisted personnel.
The latter had both advan-
tages and disadvantages. We
did not stand in cafeteria-
style lines or eat from com-
partmented aluminum trays.
It did mean the selection and
portions served were deter-
mined by others.
The meal placed before us
at that Sunday mess, turned
out to be fried liver and the
portion on my plate was
about the size, thickness and
consistency of the sole of one
of the brogans we wore for
most of the week. We were
now a couple of weeks into
training and after the first
bite, I felt sure the liver had
been issued at the same time
as our shoes. A few more
bites, coupled with the dou-
ble-time march to the mess
hall in hundred degree Texas
heat in heavily starched uni-
forms, followed by huge gulps
of ice cold milk we had all

gratefully taken as soon as
seated, and I began to feel dis-
tinctly queasy.
At each table in the huge
mess hall there were eight lower
classmen and an upper class
officer assigned to oversee the
decorum, table manners and
military bearing of his charges.
The routine was rigorous and
we sat with backs braced taking
each bite with the "square meal"
arm motions that lifted the fork
straight up untilitwas even with
our chins and then, parallel to
the table, into our mouths.
Every request had to be directed
to the upperclassman before
being granted or denied, from.
"Sir, May I have the butter, Sir,"
to the urgent request I felt com-
pelled to make.
"Sir, may I be excused from
the table, Sir." Despite feeling
sure my complexion was
rapidly turning to match the
greenish-gray color of the
liver, I was pretty certain I
knew what his answer would
be. From the first day at mess
we were reminded continual-
ly there would be no waste in
the Air Force and the meal
was over only when plates
were clean. His answer was,
"Mister, you may be excused
when you have finished the
food on your plate."
.I sawed off and masticated
a couple more pieces of liver
before nature took over and I
threw up.
It was not a genteel,
behind the hand barf befit-
ting a future officer and gen-


tleman. It was not even a
Vesuvius-like roll out of
steaming lava covering what-
ever was before it. It was the
Mount Krakatoa of gastric
eruptions remarkable not
only for its volume but for it's
velocity and range.
Three of my queasy class-
mates immediately followed
suit drenching anything not
already covered. I like to think
of that as a sympathetic chain
reaction.
The entire mess hall
became completely quiet, all
eyes turned to our table, and
all eyes at our table turned
toward me. They were, I sup-
posed, expecting some sort of
explanation or apology. I con-
sidered falling forward in a
deathlike swoon, but since I
was now largely relieved of
my burden and virtually the
only one in a dozen feet
untouched, decided I didn't
want to lie face down in that
mess! I opted, instead, for a
cadet like positive comment
delivered in the ringing tones
we were expected to use
when addressing an upper-
classman.
Wiping a bit of drool from
my chin and looking the still
dripping Lt. Bunny Hop
directly in the eye I managed
a hearty: "SIR, GREAT LIVER,
SIR. COMPLIMENTS TO THE
COOK, SIR!"

Sarasota 'Advocates' help those with hearing loss


PHOTO COURTESY OF ABH
Flo Innes, left, and Angie Nibert work at Advocates for Better Hearing Inc., which helps people
with hearing loss learn about technology that can help them.


STAFF REPORT

Advocates for Better
Hearing Inc. (ABH) is a non-
profit, 501(c)3 organization
dedicated to enhancing the
lives of people with a hearing
loss through education of


Hearing Assistive Technology,
support and friendship.
ABH was founded by Flo
Innes in 2002. She was born
with a profound hearing loss
and it was her life-long
dream to help those with a
hearing loss communicate


more easily. Her goal was to,
open a showroom where
hard-of-hearing people
could come and test the lat-
est assistive listening de-
vices available. With the
opening of ABH, she has
been able to see and hear


her dream come true.
Angie Nibert joined Innes
in 2003 as her associate direc-
tor. Nibert has a severe hear-
ing loss due to otosclerosis.
-She started losing her hearing
six years ago and wears two
behind-the-ear hearing aids.
She has knowledge of many
assistive listening devices and
will research to find the best
device for your hearing loss.
Working as a team, they

out turning up the. volume
and disturbing others in the
room. TV EARS are also
compatible with selected
theaters and play houses in
the Sarasota.
ABH also offers alerting
devices such as vibrating
alarm clocks, high-decibel
doorbells and smoke detec-
tors with strobes. Many other

vide services for hearing aids.

Heritage ,
Health Care Center
"Before started my
course of outpatient ..
therapy I could barely
raise my arm due to a fall
and it was painful. Now I ,
am able to raise my arm
-all th-e way above my tki
head. I liked having the Joseph Atkis
same therapist each therapy session. I am very
pleased with the rehab program at Heritage.
I would definitely recommend the rehab
services at Heritage without a doubt."

"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)


ALONG THE WAY IN VENICE

Venice Gondolier Sun Photojournalist Jeff Tavares took the photographs on this page in
Venice on the way to assignments the past two weeks.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT:


Old lorida, with new stren


By KIM COOL
VENICE GONDOLIER
FEATURES EDITOR
the aftermath of
n Hurricane Charlie,
which did so much
damage from North Port to
Port Charlotte, builders and
code officials have worked to
make new homes stronger
and more storm resistant.
A home built to meet.and
exceed those regulations was
recently completed in Punta
Gorda. In addition to tropical
storm considerations, the
owner also wanted to have a
house that would accommo-
date several life styles and
family sizes.
The builder said the house
is designed to meet and
exceed 130 mph-wind stan-
dards. Hurricane shutters are
included with the home,
reinforcing the plan. Mount-
ing tracks are installed, and
the shutters themselves are
stored in a small area.
Recently completed and put
on the market, the house has
the usual three bedrooms and
two bathrooms plus great
,room, kitchen and laundry
room on the first floor. That
space is totally finished with a
combination of vinyl flooring
and carpet. Features include a
master walk-in closet as large
as some bedrooms and a
corner tub in the master bath
plus a separate shower.
Storage is ample, including
two walk-in closets and large
laundry room on the first
floor. The master bedroom
closet's location makes it a
possible hurricane room.


PHOTO PROVIDED BY MATTHEW GARDNER
A recently completed house off Tucker's Grade in Port Charlotte has been built to meet new hurricane standards and also to be adaptable to different needs and lifestyles of future
homeowners. The location is three minutes from the Interstate 75 interchange.


Possibilities
A 900-square-feet area of
space on the second floor is
unfinished. Plumbed to
handle an additional bath-
room, the space could be
transformed to accommodate
as many as three additional


bedrooms. Alternatively, the
space could be left open and
used as a home office or for
display of something like a
large model railroad layout.
A separate two-car garage
located just behind the home
has a plethora of electrical


outlets, making the space
ideal for a home office or for *
someone who wants to
transform the space into a
wood-working shop.
Landscaping includes
ornamental palm trees.
There is well water and a


new state-of-the-art septic
system, which requires a
smaller than usual drain field.
Located on Tribune Road,
offTucker's Grade, the house
has been listed at $249,900 by
Sellstate Realtor Dennis
Gardner.


It can be seen daily from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday
from noon to 5 p.m. or at
other times by appointment.
For more information, call
Gardner at 1-800-965-0910 or
941-575-7676.

rarmatic backyards are for sharing


It may not be the first part of your home
most people see, but when the sun's out,
it's a traditional favorite for entertaining
and family living, No wonder 1
the backyard has become a focal point in these
three homes. Hundreds of ideas
for your backyard can be seen
at www.getdecorating.com













Palm trees and ferns frame this secluded desert oasis creating an ever-changing interplay
between light and shadow. Crimson flowerbeds border the natural rock pathway.to a
pond within a pond. Time perhaps to linger with toes dangling in the cool waters and
ponder dragons in the clouds,

This fountain
.is bordered by
contrasting
tile and shape.
Boulders appear to be reaching upwards toward the
sunshine with flowerbeds and pathways taking care to curve
respectfully around them. Exterior walls reflect the rich, earthy
greens of miniature pines and shrubbery, creating a
harmonious flow from house to lawn, An antique pony cart
filled with ornamental deciduous maples-is a colorful remindernd..
of the passage of the seasons,. ...........-..-
