'Injured' manatee turns out to be a faker


PHOTO COURTESY OF FLORIDA FISH AND WILDLIFE CONSERVATION COMMISSION
A photo of Minx, a state-documented healthy manatee that has a lazy tendency to just lie
motionless in the water. Boaters often call and report it injured or sick.


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

When Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission agents came out last
Saturday to investigate a call
,about a badly injured mana-
tee by Higel Marine Park in
Venice, they imagined the
worse.
"When we got the call that
the animal wasn't moving and
looked as it it was dead, we
sent out someone immedi-
ately who happened to live in
the area," said Dee Grant.
"It wasn't moving," said Bill
Lang, dock manager 'at Free-
dom Boat Club. "It just floated
out there all day."
"The people from the FWC
were out there from 10 a.m.
and stayed about four hours
observing it."
Lang took a boat out to get
a closer look around 4 p.m.
and the manatee was still in
the canal just floating, he
said.


Les Tamboer of Venice was
warned before taking out a
boat to be careful of an in-
jured manatee in the canal.
"It definitely had scars all
over its body that were
healed, and it was very slug-
gish," he said. "We thought it
was dead until it lifted its
head up."
A fake
Once the manatee was
observed and photographed,
the FWC people realized the
mammal was not ill. In fact, it
was a familiar face, so to
speak.
"We were glad that it was
just Minx," Grant said. "The
animal has very distinct scar
patterns and mutilations ....
She is one of our known ani-
mals and she is sort of a
faker."
The manatee has been
known to the FWC for 10
years. It's been photograph-
ing and tracking her progress.
"Minx is very slow-moving,


and people call up all the time
saying there is a sick or dying
manatee in the area," Grant
said.
Minx tends to hang around
marinas, Grant said, but it's in
good health.
It has been tracked from
Lido Key to Stump Pass and
Boca Grande.
"We know all of her stops
and we get calls about her any
time she is in a new area,"
Grant said.
New status
On June 7, the FWC reclas-
sified the West Indian mana-
tee from "endangered" to
"threatened."
' "This decision does not
mean a change in designa-
tion or less protection," Grant
said. "It just means that the
population of the manatee
has improved and they are no
longer in danger of extinc-
tion."

evaluate voting systems and

"We tried to stay away
from (candidates represent-

Shannon Staub. "We didn't
put any (major) Republicans

We chose a diverse group of

"You must have a system

said Kindra Muntz, chairper-

show no voter intent. We
don't know if it's intentional,
accidental or what."
"Maintaining the public's

Identity theft is one of the
fastest-growing crimes in the
country, and it shows no signs
of slowing down.
"It is a crime of anonymity;
victims generally don't see the
perpetrator," Sarasota County
Sheriff's Crime Prevention
Deputy Neil Scully said. "Why
run the risk of breaking into
somebody's house or robbing
a bank?"
Some law enforcement
officials say a thumbprint on
credit cards would stop most
common forms of identity
theft.
Scully isn't so sure.


"I don't think people are
comfortable with that (thumb-
prints); they see it as an in-
fringement," Scully 'said.
"Some ears back, one of the
credit card companies offered
to put the user's picture on
the credit card and people
didn't buy into it."
Scully said he does not
think the thumbprint or pic-
ture idea on credit cards will
sell until the problem gets
worse.
He said it becomes a ques-
tion of how much liberty you
are willing to give up for how
much security.

Kwanzaa festival marks 40th year


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER


Kwanzaa celebrates its
40th anniversary this year.
The official Kwanzaa Web site
describes it as a celebration
for those of African heritage,
observed by "millions through-
out the world African com-
munity."
It was founded as a result
of the Watts riots in 1965 in
Los Angeles, developed to
restore a sense of culture and
history to African Americans.
It's based on a principle
from Africa called Kawaida,
which says that social change
for Black Americans can be
accomplished by learning
from their cultural heritage.'
The word Kwanzaa means
"first" in Swahili and has to do
with harvest. The celebration
lasts seven days, starting Dec.
26 and ending Jan. 1.
There are seven ,principles
celebrated during the seven
days of Kwanzaa, one each
day. The seven principles are
practiced throughout the year
to unify the family and
remind them of their her-
itage.
The principals are: unity;
self-determination; collective
work and responsibility; co-


operative' economics; pur-
pose; creativity; and faith.
The flag adopted by Af-
rican-American liberation in
the 1960s displays the three
colors of Kwanzaa: red, black
and green. Red represents
courage and blood. Black rep-
resents the skin of African
people. Green represents the
land and the harvest.
In Kwanzaa celebrations
African-Americans wear tra-
ditional clothing: a dashiki (a
shirt) for men and dresses for
women, adorned with beauti-
ful beads. Girls also wear a
gele, or turban, around their
heads. They sing songs, tell
stories and dance.
Another symbol of Kwan-
zaa is the kinara, a candle
holder. On each night of the
,celebration one of the can-
dles in the kinara is lit.
There are three red, one
black and three green can-
dles. The red candles repre-
sent the blood and struggles
of Africa. The green candles
portray faith. The black can-
dles again stand for the skin
color of African peoples.
Founder
Kwanzaa began on Dec. 26,
1966, and was started by Dr.
Maulana Karenga.'

Karenga created Kwanzaa
to reaffirm African-Ameri-
cans' roots in African culture
and to reinforce the bonds
among them as people.
The central reason Kwan-
zaa is celebrated for seven
days is to pay homage to the
Seven Principles and to de-
velop a fundamental value
system.
Karenga is a professor and
chair of the Department of
Black Studies at California
State University, Long Beach.
He also is the director of the
Kawaida Institute of Pan-
African Studies, Los Angeles,
and national chair of the or-
ganization Us, a cultural and
social change organization.
Kwanzaa is celebrated in
Africa, the Caribbean, South
Ainerica and African commu-
nities in Britain and other
European countries, a well
as in the United States.
In 1997 the U.S. Postal
Service released a stamp to
commemorate Kwanzaa and
has continued its issuance
every year since.

The ghost of Christmas

past and future?


This was the worst Florida
Christmas since 1989.
This year, tornadoes struck
the state. Torrential rains kept
children inside and made
traveling hazardous.
Bad as Monday was, things
were worse 17 years ago.
That Christmas dawned
freezing cold. As homes pow-
ered to life, demand for elec-
tricity exceeded supply by
16 percent, triggering rolling
blackouts. TVs winked off.
Stoves were useless. Shadows
opened presents.
Brief periods with power
couldn't heat homes. We shiv-
ered in the dark.
Some said we glimpsed the
ghost of Christmases past and
future.

""Wfj 55 million
Americans, mostly women,
are at risk for the bone-
thinning disease known as
osteoporosis. If not prevented, or
if left untreated, bone density will'
diminish to the point where fractures
become inevitable, particularly of the
hip, wrist, and spine. While any bone in
the body can be affected, spinal fractures
are of particular concern because they can
cause severe back pain and deformity, such
as "dowager's hump." Not only can
women help themselves by consuming
foods and drinks rich in calcium, they
should avoid colas. Recent research shows
that for women, drinking cola is
associated with lower bone mineral
density in the hips and spine. Women are
also advised to limit their caffeine intake
to avoid osteoporosis.
P.S. Not only is the caffeine in colas
associated with lower bone mineral
density, the phosphoric acid in cola
can cause leeching of calcium from
the bones.

Florida reports spike in flu cases


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR


Florida sticks out like a red
thumb.
The Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention re-
cently announced that, based
on reports from health care
professionals, Florida is the
only state in the nation
reporting widespread inci-
dences of influenza.
That's right, the Sunshine
State.
On the most recent color-
coded map depicting the
number of flu reports for each
state, Florida is the only one
in red, indicating "wide-
spread influenza activity."
According to Scott Prit-
chard, the Sarasota County
Health Department epidemi-
ologist, certain doctors, med-
ical laboratories and health


departments contribute
information to CDC for these
reports.
"In the state of Florida, we
are seeing incidents of flu a
little earlier than usual,"
Pritchard said. "Florida is also
reporting incidents of influ-
enza throughout all regions of
the state."
However, Sarasota County,
according to Pritchard, is
right on track for an average
year. Here, Pritchard is not
seeing any drastic rise in the
incidence of flu and flu-like
symptoms.
Flu is cyclical, Pritchard
said, and we are just now get-
ting into the height of flu sea-
son, which typically peaks in
February.
"It's still not too late to get a
flu shot, if you haven't already
gotten it," Pritchard said.
"And the strains of flu we are


seeing are generally the same
ones the flu shot protects
against."

Hygiene key
Pritchard said he was
unaware of any other time
when Florida emerged as the
lead state with widespread flu
outbreaks. He said this re-
flects how the flu enters the
country from other sources,
"but we have no control over
where it comes in." The
strains of flu observed this
year could have been intro-
duced into Florida earlier
than in most other states.
Pritchard said there was no
apparent difference between-
North and South counties in
reports of flu cases. He said
this year the county health
department is monitoring all
the schools.
Melanie Heitman, a phar-


macist at the Medicine
Shoppe, said, "There's no evi-
dence of flu here. I don't think
there are many cases in this
neck of the woods."
She believes that many.
people heeded health depart-
ment advice and got the flu
shot.
Dr. Stephen Dickey of the
Doctors Walk-In Clinics of
Tampa, Clearwater and Pas-
co, said the most important
prevention method is the flu
shot.
Flu season is just now kick-
ing into high gear. It takes two
or three weeks for the shot to
become fully effective. He
said his clinics have adminis-
tered more than 15,000 flu
shots already this season.
"The other key factor is
hygiene," Dickey said. "Wash
your hands, wash your hands,
wash your hands."


He suggested that you not attack viruses that cause a
sneeze or cough not into your cold or flu. But Tamiflu is

FLU FACTS


The flu is a serious illness that results
in an average of 36,000 deaths and
more than 200,000 hospitalizations
in the United States annually.
Complications can include bacterial
pneumonia, dehydration and
worsening of chronic medical con-
ditions, such as congestive heart
failure, asthma or diabetes. Children
may develop complications such as
sinus and ear infections.

Know your flu FACTS.:-
Fever spike (up to 103 degrees)
Aches
Chills


Tiredness
Sudden symptom onset
Theflu shot There are two types
of flu vaccine, neither of which
causes a person to get influenza.
The traditional flu vaccine shot,
approved for people older than 6
months, contains inactivated
(dead) virus. A nasal-spray made
with live, weakened flu viruses is
approved for use by healthy people
between the ages of 5 and 49 years
who are not pregnant Both work
by causing antibodies to develop in
the body, which provide protection
against the influenza virus.


if you gettheflu:There are some
things you can do to help recover
more quickly. Though chicken noo-
dle soup, plenty of sleep and lots of
liquids may provide comfort, a
physician can prescribe an antiviral
medication such as Tamiflu that can
reduce the duration of symptoms.
Antivirals must be taken within 12
to 48 hours of the onset of flu
symptoms to be effective.
HowTamiflu works Tamiflu
works by targeting one of the two
major surface structures of the
influenza virus, the neuraminidase
protein, which is found on the sur-


face of virtually all common flu
viruses.The neuraminidase protein
enables the virus to migrate from
cell to cell, replicating and spread-
ing throughout the body. Inhibiting
the neuraminidase activity is
believed to interfere with this
process, possibly causing the virus-
es to become trapped and die out.
Tamiflu is designed to inhibit (or
interact with) the neuraminidase
protein only on the influenza virus,
so there is no risk of resistant viruses
emerging in an individual grven
Tamiflu who is later found to have a
noninfluenza virus.

Housing trust
homebuyer orientations

Community Housing Trust
has begun holding orienta-
tions for first-time homebuy-
ers.
Homebuyer orientations
are a one-hour introduction
that provides a road map for
people interested in buying a
home. At the end of the orien-
tation, participants can un-
dergo a homebuyer readiness
assessment so they know how
prepared they are to buy a
house, what price of a home
they qualify for and what
their next step is in the pro-


cess.
Based on the assessment,
people will be linked with an
array of services including
homebuyer education, credit
counseling and affordable
loan products.
The orientations will be
held in Sarasota, Venice and
North Port. Orientations in
Sarasota will be held on the
second and fourth Wednes-
day of every month at 6 p.m.
at the CHT office, which is
located at 3430 Magic Oak
Lane (the 4600 block of
Fruitville Road) in Sarasota.
For a complete schedule,
additional information and


registration, call 379-5252.
Irrigation reminder
Sarasota County reminds
residents that under new lawn
irrigation guidelines, Thursday
replaces Sunday as the desig-
nated irrigation day for proper-
ties that end in odd numbers or
letters A through M.
Tuesday remains the irri-
gation day for properties with
addresses that end in even
numbers or the letters N
though Z. Common areas
with no addresses, such as
median or roadside planti-
ngs, clubhouse or recreation
areas, may be irrigated only


on Tuesday, and no irrigation
is permitted between 10 a.m.
and 4 p.m.
These restrictions apply
whether the source of water is
a well, pond or utility system,
and are in effect whether or
not a drought is declared. Any
variances granted by the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District remain
in place.
The change was made to
equalize demand and ensure
adequate pressure in distrib-
ution lines during weekends,
which are traditionally high
water-use days for a variety of
home tasks.

FAKER from page 1A


The current debate over
manatee protection goes
back to 2000, when the U.S.
Fish & Wildlife Service re-
leased information indicating
that it was considering estab-
lishing manatee sanctuaries
and refuges in 150 new areas
in Florida.
Around the same time, a
major environmental and ani-
mal rights group, which had
brought a lawsuit against the
state and federal government
over manatee protection, pre-
pared a separate list recom-
mending 115 new sanctuaries
and refuges. Those lists include
many of Florida's most impor-
tant saltwater fishing areas.
At that time, Coastal Con-
servation Association Florida
became involved in the issue
to ensure that the interests of
saltwater anglers were con-


sidered and to offer alterna-
tives other than banning the
public from public waters.
The reclassification of the
manatee hasn't yet resulted in
major changes under the law.
'All of the existing speed
zones will stay the same until
there is another review,"
Grant said.
If you see a sick or injured
manatee, call (888) 404-3922
to report it.
"Basically our job is to res-
cue sick and injured mana-
tees and collect any that have
died," Grant said. "The best
way we get our information is
from citizen reports, so we
investigate every one of
them."

OUR 'IEW


Bad drivers, unsafe roads


a deadly combination


We have been discussing highway safety
for a year or more. Our focus has been
on the fact the Florida Highway
Department has the ability to save thou-
sands of lives. Maybe yours.
Now, we are unaware that bad or careless
drivers cause most accidents. Some people
behind the wheel are going to be drunk
unless we ban liquor or in spite of a ban,
probably. Others are careless. Some of us
drive too fast, others too slow. We talk on cell
phones or tend to fussy children in the back
seat at 70 mph. People do many other stupid
things.
We all know there are thousands of bad
drivers in Florida. That is why we believe the
state has an obligation to try to protect us
from them.
Most people understand that defective


cars also cause crashes. So when SUV tires
explode and flip vehicles over, we demand
replacement of those tires and want car
manufacturers to make their SUVs and other
vehicles safer.
Most of us also are aware of crash tests
and vehicle safety ratings. New equipment
has been invented to check the strength of a
car's roof when it rolls over. Stronger, safer
cars help protect us from all the bad or care-
less drivers we all like to complain about.
In the past, certain vehicles, when rear-
ended, had gas tanks that caught on fire or
exploded. Again, the government stepped in
and ordered car companies to make changes
for the sake of safety.
We also have rules that truckers must stop
and rest now and then. Most of us do not
want to be run down or hit broadside by a


sleepy trucker in a loaded 18-wheeler.
Do those who complain about our cam-
paign for safer roads also want the govern-
ment to force auto makers to stop dealing
with defective and dangerous vehicles? Of
course not.
Do they propose the government elimi-
nate air bags and seat belts and special seats
to protect our children? Doubtful.
People tend to understand this part of the
safety equation. But many fail to grasp the
fact the roads themselves can and must be
made safer.
In a California city, palm trees were plant-
ed in the road median. In the first six months,
three people were killed when they lost con-
trol and rammed those palms. Is death an
acceptable price for making highways beau-
tiful?


At busy intersections along U.S. 41 there
often are green turn arrows. We find bulbs
burned out in the red turn arrows. Does any-
,one care, even when people die?
If the highway department puts up signs
announcing an important turn just 14 sec-
onds before a driver reaches an intersection
and that driver must cross four lanes of traf-
fic to make that turn, if someone is killed or
injured, whose fault is that?
If we really want to reduce deaths more
thought must be given to safety, and FDOT
must make corrections. Too many highways
are designed as if they were video games,
with only the losers playing.
Universities teach highway engineers how
to save lives. Unfortunately few graduate
engineers, when hired by FDOT, are given
the opportunity to solve problems.


Time for your


New Year's


resolution


BOB VEDDER


Ok, so you and I ate our
way through Christmas. We
may not have eaten all of the
$13.9 billion of chocolate
made each year, but it felt like
it. Of the annual 25.7 pounds
the average person eats of
chocolate, we probably
thought we consumed it all
this week.
Now we have only a few
more days to eat like there is
no tomorrow, 'knowing that
come Jan. 1 we have to go on
a strict diet. Of course, we
need also to put exercise on
the list so the pounds go off at
twice the rate (unless you are
one of those people in total
control). I'd put getting a
membership to the YMCA or
Lifestyles on your list.
The challenge is when to
exercise: early in the morning
usually has fewer conflicts,
but whenever you do it, get
into a routine. Often it helps
to have a friend suffer with
you.
I need to lose 10 pounds.
My formula is: eat three,
meals; eat whatever I want
with some important excep-
tions; take out alot of the fried
foods, especially fries; take
out rolls before meals and
deserts and snacks after
meals; last, watch the por-
tions -instead of two sand-
wiches, make it one, instead
of a whole small pizza, make
it two slices less.
It is better to have poultry
and fish, but don't cut out
everything. A hamburger
once a while is fine.
As for other resolutions,
like balancing your life and
giving yourself more personal
time and sharing and explor-
ing more, the new year gives
you a chance to start over.
In the meantime, cele-
brate.


By's Crack: As we begin
2007, let us all join togeth-
er and make a solemn
New Year's resolution: Be
kind to dumb animals -
even if they are related to
you by birth.


The most exciting thing
that happened in our house-
hold around Christmas was
the Christmas tree falling
over.

If you missed the Venice
Christmas boat parade, you
should go to the Web site
VeniceChristmasboatparade.
com, where you can watch
the entire 46 boats. It takes
about 30 minutes. Thanks to
Blab TV and narration by
committee chair John Osmul-
ski, there is a nice closeup of
one of the biggest parades
ever.

Today's Ism: Golf in Gaelic
means "simple game." How
little they know.

Through November we
were about 7.5 inches below
our normal rainfall for the
previous 12 months. Maybe
the Christmas rains will help
catch us up a little.

The ceramic mural on the
pump house next to the kids
fountain downtown is done
and another great addition to
the public art collection
around town, thanks in large
part to Jean Trammell. The
Venice Gondolier Sun mural
on the back of our printing
plant on the Iritracoastal is
virtually done. Coleen Henry
has done a marvelous job,
just having finished Bertha
Palmer, John Nolan and John
Albee. The finished scene
depicts much of the history of
our community.

It was 90 years ago Monday
that the MTL Close to Nature
nudist park opened at Eagle
Point. And we thought times
were getting more liberal.

,rites a


Sopranos concert was an aural treat


Editor:
Venice-area residents and visitors were treated at Venice's
Church of the Nazarene to a glorious performance by three
outstanding opera divas.
Deborah Berioli graciously shared the spotlight with two
other sopranos, Alycia Lynch and Jennifer Winn. The three
were accompanied by an equally outstanding pianist, Lee
Dougherty Ross.
Each of these singers has beautiful tone, phrasing, musical
sensitivity and passion. We enjoyed solo performances from
each singer, as well as duet and trio offerings.
The program consisted of two sections; operatic selections,
including the most beautiful soprano works of Puccini, Cilea,
Bellini, Mozart, Verdi and Massenet; and sacred selections,
including the exquisite "Voice Without a Name" of Tony Barr,
pieces from Mozart's "Great Mass in C Minor" and Spanish
Carols of Joaquin Nin.
This section of the program began with the beautiful "Ave
Maria" of Schubert and then most movingly ended with the
Bach-Gounod "Ave Maria." The joyful coda of the afternoon
were three special Christmas arrangements by Jane Watts.
Also deserving of mention was their visual presentation. The
three sopranos were visually dazzling, wearing gorgeous
gowns to enhance their individual beauty.
Ms. Lynch is a statuesque blonde, Ms. Winn is a fair-com-
plexioned redhead with a long flowing mane, and our Ms.
Berioli is a brunette with fire, passion and pathos which can
turn amazingly to impish glee, fun, teasing and utmost joy.
Another concert is scheduled for Jan. 6, to be held at the
Venice Unitarian Universalist Church on Pinebrook Road. Call
484-0386.

and failure to file a annual

Those who invested from

Preserving a family heirloom


The Polk County Democrat
twice-weekly newspaper has
been in the Frisbie family for
four generations.
The Frisbie family recently
decided it was time to allow
someone outside the family
to own the paper.
Imagine caring for a virtual
member of the family for 75
years and then putting that
family member up for adop-
tion.
That's why it is such an
honor that the Frisbie family
sought out our family to con-
tinue the care and nurturing
of their newspaper baby,
which has been in their fami-
ly for three-quarters of a cen-
tury.
There are a goodly number
of business honors our news-
papers have received over the
many years. Our newspapers
have won more than 500
awards for excellence during
the last five years.
I cannot think of a higher
honor than a family newspa-

per publisher looking at how
we run our newspapers and
deciding we are his first
choice to carry on their four-
generation business. An
honor this large will be diffi-
cult to live up to.
S.L. Frisbie IV and Derek
Dunn-Rankin first formed a
friendship 29 years ago, when
both were active in the lead-
ership of the Florida Press
Association.
S.L. is one of Florida's most
well-known and respected
weekly publishers. I not-so-
kiddingly told S.L. he remind-
ed me of Lewis Grizzard, the
legendary newspaper colum-
nist for the Atlanta Journal-
Constitution.
S.L. is a former president of
the Florida Press Association
and probably the character
we all imagine when we think
of a weekly newspaper editor
and publisher. ,
S.L.'s wife, Mary, runs the
business side. There's not a
check that goes out that Mary
doesn't know the full story of
forward and backward.
These two individuals, S.L.
and Mary, are very bright and
passed along their smarts to
their talented children. Those
grown children include a
teacher, a professor, a gradu-
ate school student, a semi-
narian and a nurse.


The acorn does not fall far
from the tree.
S.L. and Mary's newspaper
philosophy is very similar to
ours. A local newspaper is
owned by the community.
Our job is to work in partner-
ship with the community to
help make it a better place
today, tomorrow and for
future generations.
While we disagree with our
local public officials from
time to time, we believe our
public officials and govern-
ment employees did not get
into office in order to make
big bucks. They genuinely
care about our community
and want it to be a better
place.
When we disagree, we try
to remember that next week
we might be working together
with our local government on
an issue where we have com-
mon ground.

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks


Make sense. City sidewalks are a big part of the community.
The community at large expects that the sidewalks be utilized
for purposes of entertainment, shopping and the like.
Restriction of the sidewalk usage would not make sense. Take a
look at most cities around the country and you'll find a vibrant
city-scape that includes the use of sidewalks.


No and no. Do we want
people running this country
who are too immature to
accept their defeat in the elec-
tion? I say, "No." Do we want
voters who -can't figure out'
something as simple as an
electronic voting machine
choosing who's going to run
this country? To that I say,
"Heck rio."
Make over. With another
Christmas season here, many
take the time to think about
those .less fortunate than
themselves. I'd like to make a
suggestion. In conjunction
with that desire to give, to
help, to want to make a differ-
ence, people could band
together and help by "making
over" an individual or family
(to plagiarize some of the
reality shows that are on TV).
There are homeless, jobless
and those seeking steady
employment. Those with
medical afflictions or in need
of assistance. Those that are
lonely, just to name a few.
Choose someone to nurture,
utilizing their skills for career
placements, take care of med-
ical needs. Please consider

that there are those trying to
survive right in your communi-
ties due to circumstances that
they were unable to control.
What can you or your business
or organization do to help?
A joke. I'm calling about the
lack of construction going on
on 41 and through Nokomis.
The condos are going up six
times faster where the tiki bar
used to be than the road is
being done. Dona Bay Bridge is
no farther along now than it
was in the middle of summer.
It's actually a joke. Something's
got to be done; these business-
es are dying. My business is
dying. The county ought to be
ashamed of themselves.
On the money. During the


election, the prediction was
made that the prices of gaso-
line and crude oil would go
back up after the election and
that prediction has come true.
It's up almost 25 cents per gal-
lon now, just the first of
December. I figure by Christ-
mas, it will be up probably 50
cents per gallon and it will be
up $5 to $8 per barrel. Isn't this
wonderful?

BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


The Sarasota County Sher-
iff's Office Aviation Unit is
looking for a pilot'following
the recent resignation of chief
pilot Roger Jernigan.
"We will be advertising in
various law enforcement
publications," Lt. Chuck Le-
saltato said. "We are looking
for a certified law enforce-
ment officer who also is a
licensed helicopter pilot."


Lesaltato said the ads will
be published soon.
With Jernigan's resigna-
tion, the agency is down to
only two pilots: Capt. Kevin
Kenny, who is also a heli-
copter flight instructor, and
Deputy Steve Boone.
Pilot/Deputy Jeff Hesoun,
retired several months ago.
Jernigan, 43, a sergeant,
was a veteran pilot with more
than 7,500 flight hours in air-
craft ranging from helicopters
to large corporate jet aircraft.

As such, it demands the
pilot do some tricky flying.
While hovering dangerously
close to the water's surface,
the pilot must fill the 265-gal-
lon belly tank with water by
means of a 9-foot suction
hose. There is a 300-gallon-
per-minute pump on one end
of the hose. Once the tank is
full, the chopper flies to the
fire and dumps water on it.
In addition to being a certi-
fied law enforcement officer
and licensed helicopter pilot,
the new hire will also have
to be cross-trained as Fire-
fighter 2.
A Firefighter 2 rating
means the pilot has met
national wildfire fighting
standards used by the U.S.

The sheriff's office also
owns a fixed-wing, "un-
marked" twin-engine Beech

The Baron is unmarked so
as not to call attention to itself
when it flies to other airports.
It is used for duty such as trav-
el for county officials, prison-
er transport and certain
search-and-rescue opera-
tions.
Air-1 and the Baron are

Planning commission favors firefighter training facility


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
Planning Commission unani-
mously approved a rezone
petition Dec. 21 that would
enable the Englewood Area
Fire Control District to build a
training facility at 931 South
River Road on property
owned by the Englewood
Water District.
"The use of the facility will
be for training," said Scott
Lane of the Englewood Fire
Department. "Currently, our
training is conducted basical-
ly in the streets and parking
lots and areas more populat-
ed. So we feel for our safety
and also for public safety, that
we need to pursue a facility
for training."
According to Lane, the fire
department plans to lease
property from the EWD.
"Our goal is to erect a facil-
ity where we can perform our
hose tests, live fire training
and rope rescue training for
the district," Lane said.
He added that the facility's
hours of operation would be
Monday through Friday from
9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Occasional
Saturday training for new
hires would be conducted

from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Finally,
three-night drills would be
held three times annually,
concluding no later than 10
p.m.
'Clean wood'
Commissioner Marianne
Reilly expressed concern that
the facility would go up next
to River Oaks, an assisted-liv-
ing facility at 925 South River
Road.
"I'm assuming that all the
training is indoors and we're
not doing any smoke training
on the site or anything like
that," Reilly said.
Lane corrected her.
"We will be performing
outdoor training," Lane said.
"Live fires with smoke."
He quickly added smoke
produced in the training
would come from "clean
wood" and no toxic materials
such as plastics would be
burned. He assured Reilly
controlled bums would only
take place on days with favor-
able wind conditions, and fire
department policy dictates
that letters must go out to
area residents and businesses
one week ahead of time,
warning them of the burns.
S"We don't do sirens and
nothing like that back in the


facility area," Lane said.
"How frequently do you do
these live drills?" asked
Commissioner Roland Pic-
corie.
"Maybe once every couple
of months," Lane said. "If the
wind is not coming from the'
right direction, it's easy for us
to cancel our drill and per-
form it on another day."
"My only concern here is
that it's smack dab in the mid-
dle of a residential zoning dis-
trict, whereas it might have
been more appropriate in an
industrial area," Piccone said.
Commissioner Laurel Schil-
ler echoed concern of her own
over the site location, reading
aloud from the application.
"'Site was chosen because
of the proximity of the prop-
erty to the center of the dis-
trict and being located in the
busiest zone of the district,'"
she read. "Could you talk to
that?"
"Most of our units would
be in that zone at all times,"
Lane said. "So there will
always be coverage in that
particular area. Fifty percent
of our calls come out of that
area."

Richard Bradway & Associates is pleased to announce the
addition of Jim White to their team of associates.

Jim, a veteran Realtor, moved to the area in 2004 after having
worked in management with Brooks Bros: in Baltimore, MD,
Tysons Comer, VA and Washington, D.C. His dream, though, like
many other people, was to make Florida his home. Searching on
the Internet, he narrowed the area to our beautiful West Coast and
looked at property from Bradenton to Ft. Myers. By chance, his
travels took him west across the Venice Avenue bridge. It was love
at first sight. Jim has been a Venice resident since! His love of our
area has helped him make home buying dreams come true for
many others.

Jim White can be reached at 230 So. Tamiami Trail, on the Island
of Venice, (941)412-3323, or on his cellular, (941) 223-5378

MEDICAL CENTER




L..nl the New Year wft


s11-c..e. 0+ 6~oncA


i's easy to make New Year's resolutions about getting healthy and staying
Healthyy; it's just hard to keep them. Eating a healthy diet and following
an appropriate exercise routine is important, as is keeping regular appointments
with your physician so that any potential health problems can be diagnosed early.
In that respect, residents of Venice are fortunate to have access to Venice Regional
Medical Center's (VRRMC) newest diagnostic tool. the 64-slice computed
tomography (CT) scanner. Its speed and accuracy make spotting potential
problems vastly easier for both physicians and patients.
The Philips Brilliance 64-Slice CT scanner is among the fastest CT scanners in
the world. It can produce an entire scan of an organ-such as the heart, brain,
or lungs-in five seconds or fewer, while it can perform a full body scan in about
30 seconds. This means significantly less discomfort for patients, especially those
with breathing difficulties. At the same time, the scanner produces significantly
more accuracy for doctors. The crystal clear three-dimensional images produced
by the scanner allow physicians to observe anatomy in amazing detail, facilitating
early diagnosis and treatment. The scanner requires no hospital stay or incision,
and because the scan is over so qqicdy. radiation exposure is noticeably reduced.
Since its introduction, the 64-slice CT scanner has become useful in the diagnosis
of cardiac problems. Because it can capture almost 200 images per second, the
scanner gives doctors a real-time, multi-dimensional, dynamic picture of the heart
and arteries. "The ability to view the heart in motion is of tremendous benefit
in the diagnosis and evaluation of heart disease," says Rob Bruce, Director of
Radiology at VRNC. The scanner also allows physicians to see plaque in arteries,
whether it's bad plaque or good plaque, which often obviates the need for invasive
(and riskier) tests, such as cardiac catheterization.
Another promising use of the scanner is in cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Like most CT scanners, the 64-slice scanner provides an accurate picture of
tumor size. But because it allows doctors to view tumors dynamically, they can
instantly observe, using special diagnostic tests, how well a patient is responding
to treatment. This, in turn, can provide an earlier indication of the treatment's
outcome for a particular patient.
Finally, the scanner is a tremendously important diagnostic tool in any regimen
of preventive health. Melody Trimble, CEO of VRNMC, explains. "A full body
scan with the 64-slice CT scanner can give us a wealth of information on your
health status. We expect that, as awareness of this technology spreads, people will
want to schedule annual scans as a preventive measure." The cost of scans ordered
by a' physician will typically be covered by Medicare
and some forms of insurance, and private pay ::-i
scans are also available.
Venice Regional Medical Center is proud
to own this cutting-edge piece of diagnostic P '
equipment,which isstill making
its debut in some of the most ..,
prestigious facilities around '
the world. From everyone at -
VRNIC, Happy New Year . .
and \when it comes to your health,
make sure to keep your New Years ..i( :
resolutions.

HYPERBARIC OXYGEN

TREATMENT

FOR DIABETIC FOOT

ULCERS

Foot ulcers aren't fun to talk about,
but they're one of the most common
complications in diabetic patients.
Diabetics should consult with their
physician and/or podiatriscon a regular
basis to have their feet inspected for foot
ulcers. Once diagnosed, the Venice
Regional Center for \Wound Care and
Hyperbaric Medicine has physicians
who care for diabetic foot ulcers and
offer the option of hyperbaric oxygen
treatments for certain non-healing
diabetic ulcers of the lower extremity.

Citses If Foot Lilc,.:
Diabetes currently affects 20.8
million Americans, or -%o of the total
population. In the 60 and older age
group, the percentage triples to almost
21Oo.
Almost a third of diabetics develop
peripheral neuropathy, a type of nerve
damage that renders feet insensitive
to pain and causes' even small cuts.
blisters, and hot spots to develop
into ulcers. Diabetic patients suffer
from poor circulation, which pre'enths
injuries from healing properly, and
diaberes-caused joint stiffness and
vision problems hinder some patients
from taking care of their feet.
Untreated foot ulcers can become
serious health issues, and can even
result in amputation. Luckily,
however, with the proper care, they
are preventable and treatable.

P 'i'cii:oi, and T'c'Ieannent
.* In general. rake care to manage
your diabetes. Follow your physicians
instructions, eat well, and exercise,
if you can. In addition, there are a
number of specific steps you can take
to protect your feet:

1. Checks our jeet daily. Lise a mirror
if' you have trouble bending over, and
have a family member or friend help
you if you're unable to check your
lfeer.

2. W'sh your feet etery day. \\ash
Your feet in warm water with a
mild cleanser. Dry them carefully,
especially between your toes. Apply
a thin coat of light moisturizer to the
tops and bottoms of your feet to keep
\your skin supple, but don't allow it to
accumulate between your toes.

3. Take care of your toenail. Clip your
nails straight across and use a file to
smooth the sharp edges at the corners.
If you have peripheral neuropathy,.
vascular disease, or eve disease you
should t cut your own toenails, since
you risk injuring yourself. Talk to your
doctor or podiatrist if you need help.

4. W'ar shoes and socks at a//ll times,
even at home. You could cut your
foot even while you're at home, which
could lead to an ulcer.

5. Wear only good-fitting footwear.
Find comfortable shoes that don't
need to be broken in and have plenty
of room for your toes. Women
should avoid high-heels and shoes
with pointed toes.

If you have an ulcer of the
lower extremity and would like

Hatchling sea turtles head toward the gulf and the beginning of life at sea.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Despite efforts to educate the public, light-
ing infractions along Venice beaches contin-
ued to spell trouble for turtles during the 2006
sea turtle nesting season, May 1-Oct. 31.
The $12.1 million renourishment of Venice
beaches contributed to the problem. The
higher renourished beach platform increase
visibility of inland lights within range of the
beach, yet lighting infractions at beachfront
restaurants-and condos continue as the main
problem. During the season, Venice Code
Enforcement Officer John Patek walked the
beach several times, issuing letters to offend-
ers about lighting infractions. Some letter
recipients were notified of the same or similar
infractions as far back as 2001.
A 29-page report of a lighting study con-
ducted by Meghan Conti of Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission indicated
that 54 percent of violators to the lighting ordi-
nance were repeat offenders. There were more
at the northern end of the beach than at the
southern, less-populated end, despite a pre-
season effort to educate residents.
April 22, there was nearly a full house in
council chambers at Venice City Hall when
Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium
Biologist Tony Tucker and other sea turtle
and lighting experts presented a program
about the importance of shielding lights in
the vicinity of Venice beaches during the
season. (Tucker is the manager of Mote's
Sea Turtle Conservation and Research Pro-
gram in Mote's Center for Marine Mammal
and Sea Turtle Research.} Tests were given
at the class and certificates issued to those
passing the tests all seemingly to no
avail for the endangered giant creatures
and their tiny hatchlings attempting to
continue the species on Venice beaches.


Numbers tell a story
Along Venice beaches there were 173 log-
gerhead and 110 false crawls, two reports of
disoriented adult sea turtles, reports of more
than 1,109 disoriented hatchlings and 44 dis-
oriented nests. By comparison, along Casey
Key beaches there were no reports of adult
turtle disorientations, slightly more than 112
disoriented hatchlings and just six disoriented
nests. During the summer, Casey Key tends to
be darker as many of its residents are away,
and there are no areas of large condos such as
those along the Esplanade in Venice.
Comparing those figures seems to prove
that people are the problem. Yet the numbers
for Siesta Key, which has far more beach-front
condo developments than Venice, were simi-
lar to those for Casey Key. On Siesta Key, there
were 117 nests, one disoriented adult sea tur-
tle, more than 50 disoriented hatchlings and
five disoriented nests.
Data collected since 1991 show a similar
number of nests along county beaches in 1991
and 2006, with a peak of some 4,000 nests in
1998.
Sarasota County is the major loggerhead
rookery in the Gulf of Mexico. Loss of coastal
dunes to development and renourishment
present major hurdles for nesting turtles and
their hatchlings.
Hurricanes were a non-issue and even
Tropical Storm Alberto cause little trouble to
the turtles, leading to a better-than-average
hatchling year. From Longboat Key south to
Venice, there was a total of 1,950 Loggerhead
nests, 282 false crawls, two green turtle nests
and one green turtle false crawl. According to
information assembled by scientists at Mote
from data collected by Mote volunteers and

Longboat Key Turtle Watch Inc., the highest
percentages. of disorientations in 2006 were
recorded on Longboat Key, Lido Beach and
Venice Beach.


In 2007, Mote and the City of Venice will
take a proactive approach to the continuing
problems in its immediate area.
Reproductive life of a sea turtle
Beach development is less of a problem in
Venice than elsewhere because it has been a
non-issue for nearly 30 years, coinciding with
the age of sexual, maturity for sea turtles. The
females historically return to the area where
they were hatched to make their nests and lay
their eggs.. If that area was uninhabited when
the turtle was a hatchling and 30 years later is
the site of a condominium, a false crawl is like-
ly as the turtle attempts to find a nesting spot.
During the season volunteers patrol the
beaches near dawn, marking the nests and
then returning about 45-55 days later to look
for signs of hatching from nests known to have
eggs. Nests are inventoried at that time and
any stray hatchlings still alive are assisted
toward the relative safety of the water. Less
than one of 1,000 hatchlings will reach sexual
- maturity. Those that succeed will have been
swept across the currents to the Canary
Islands and back again, somehow avoiding
predators in the sea, diseases and challenges
such as those caused by red tide algae blooms.
The effects of red tide led to the death or
stranding of more than 100 turtles along SW
Florida beaches this past year. Many were suc-
cessfully treated at Mote and released.
Ongoing studies
Mote interns tagged 110 female nesting tur-
tles on Casey Key during June and July. Biopsy
samples were taken from 65 turtles during
those months and eight of 13 loggerhead
females equipped with satellite tracking
devices were followed during the summer.
Ariel, a tagged turtle that I watched crawl back
into the sea at 3:45 a.m. on July 18, was found
dead off Tampa Bay sometime later. The other


seven were tracked in areas of heavy boat traf-
fic, near dredges and areas covered with the
red tide algae bloom. All are hazardous to
marine mammals. Despite their wanderings
all seven returned to their genetic nesting
areas, despite the interference of strong water
currents, allowing scientists to learn more
about their home ranges.
Individuals, educators or groups can con-
tribute to the sponsorship of satellite tags or
adopt a turtle for classrooms. Visit mote.org
for more information about the satellite tag-
ging and other areas of investigation within
Mote's Sea Turtle Conservation and Research
Program.
Donations to Mote's Sea Turtle
Conservation and Research Program should
be labeled as such and sent to: Development
Office, Mote Marine Laboratory, 1600 Ken
Thompson Parkway, Sarasota, FL 34236. Mark
the donation "Sea Turtle Conservation and
Research." Call 388-4441, Ext. 470 for more
information.
Tucker, a long-time sea turtle expert, and
other Mote scientists and turtle fans have ven-
tured to Crete and Australia during the year to
learn more about world-wide issues affecting
sea turtles. In mid-November, they attended
the Gulf Coast Regional Sea Turtle Association
meeting to discuss preliminary data. Feb. 22-
28, the 27th annual Symposium on Sea Turtle
Biology and Conservation will be held in
Myrtle Beach, SC. Mote scientists will present
several programs at the event.
Dim future
Turtle volunteers hope the future will be
dim for Venice turtles dim or no lights at or
near the beach. To learn more about Florida
sea turtles, visit mote.org. For information
about symposiums and other events, visit
iconferences.seaturtle.org. To volunteer in the

Florida's Blood Centers

issues critical appeal


STAFF REPORT


Florida's Blood Centers
(FBC) is issuing a critical
appeal for all blood types due
to high demand and low
donations. FBC has experi-
enced numerous emergen-
cies and surgeries that are
straining the blood supply.
Anyone who is eligible to
donate blood is. uTged ;Q .con-
./ tact. FBC at.(94l 492-9202 or
visit floridasbloodcenters.org.
All FBC branches and
mobile units throughout the
community welcome dona-
tions. The Venice location is at
333 South Tamiami Trail, #169
in the Tandem Center. Hours
are 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Tuesday
and Thursday; and 8 a.m.-4
p.m., Wednesday, Friday and
Saturday.
FBC needs any person who
has ever considered giving
blood to please donate. Every
blood type is critical to the
health and life of someone in
need of a transfusion. Cancer
patients are in daily need of


treatment, burn victims use
plasma, trauma victims need
red blood transfusions, and
routine surgeries depend on
the gift of a volunteer donor.
Donors can be as young as 16
and there is no upper age
limit.
Donation facts
* Every two seconds, some-
one in the United States
needs blood.
'* More than 2,000 blood
donations are needed each
day in Florida.
* Just one donation can help
save three lives, because
blood is separated into three
components: red blood cells,
plasma and platelets.
* Sixty-five percent of the
population is eligible to give
blood, yet fewer than 5 per-,
cent of people actually do.
* Donating blood is perfectly
safe. A sterile needle is used
once for each donor.

dasbloodcenters.org or call

DAVE BARRY
,i V, JMN


(This classic DAVE BARRY col-
umn was originally published Dec.
13, 1998.). ,

Ho ho ho! 'Tis the
Christmas season, a time of
festivity .and fun and credit-
card statements the length of
"The Brothers Karamazov."
It's also a time when the pub-
lications at supermarket-
checkout counters are chock-
full of articles featuring cre-
ative holiday craft ideas, with
headlines like:
"CHER TELLS OPRAH:
'CAST OF "FRIENDS" ATE MY
BABY "'
No, sorry, wrong type of
supermarket-checkout publi-
cation. The ones with the hol-
iday craft ideas are the home-
maker magazines, which are
filled with articles like "50 Fun
:Holiday Crafts You Can ake
With Your Saliva." The prob-
lem is that, to make these
crafts, you usually have to
understand some technical
craft terms. For example, I
have here a Family Circle arti-
cle on 25 do-it-yourself holi-
day gifts; in the instructions
for making a "Yuletide Shelf,"
it says that step one is to
"gesso an unfinished wooden
shelf."

Call me a big fat holiday
dope if you want, but I have
no idea what "gesso" means.
It sounds like dialogue in a
bad western movie:
FIRST COWBOY: Yew fixin'
tuh wrangle them heifers?
SECOND COWBOY: Ah
gesso.
The thing is, I happen to0
consider myself a craft expert,
based on my experience in
the summer of 1966 at Camp
Sharparoon in Dover
Furnace, N.Y, where I held
the title of Craft Shop
Counselor. They did not give
this title to just anybody. They
gave it only to those individu-
als who, when asked, "Do you
want to be Craft Shop
Counselor?" answered "OK."
Our most popular craft
project in fact, our ONLY
craft project was having
the campers make "lanyards,"
which were these things that
you made by braiding some-
thing called"gimp."You spent
several days braiding your
lanyard, and then you hung it
around your neck, .where it
served thousands of useful
purposes, although nobody I
know ever could think of any.
Nevertheless we had our
campers make them by the
metric ton.
I suppose I should have
come up with some other
craft projects, but I was preny
busy fighting bats. The Camp.
Shhrparoon craft shop was
located in a rustic old struc.
ture that housed what had to
be the largest irate bat colony
in North America. Around
dusk, the bats would swarm
out and, perhaps angered by
the "gimp," swoop around the
campers, causing them to
become frightened and com-


mit potentially serious braid-
ing errors. So I, as the author-
ity figure, would try to hit
them (the bats) with a broom.
I got pretty good at it. The key
is to have a relaxed grip on the
handle, keep your eye on the
bat, and follow through on
your swing. I could consis-
tentl. drive a bat 25 feet,
which is more than twice the
best distance ever attained by
so-called "craft expert"
Martha Stewart.
And that is why today I am
proud to present the follow-
ing holiday feature,
"Christmas Projects for the
Craft-Impaired." We'll start
with an easy and inexpensive
gift idea:
HOLIDAY COAT HANG-
ERS
This is the perfect solution
for that embarrassing
moment when people give
you a gift and you didn't get
anything for them. Simply
take an ordinary wire coat
hanger from your closet, tie a
festive red ribbon around it,
and Voia! -- you have a
useful, hand-crafted gift that
perfectly expresses the holi-
day message: "This cost me
nothing." If you don't want to
go to all that trouble, you can
simply give people a hanger
and tell them to tie their own
ribbon on it. For that matter,
they might just as well use
their own hanger; no sense in
killing yourself! You have
other holiday craft projects to
think about, such as this funi
and rewarding idea for the
kids:
NLWYONNAISE NATIlTY
SCENE
Get a big jar no. get SEV-
ERIL big jars of mayon-
naise. Scoop the mayonnaise


out onto a table or floor in a
big glob, and tell the kids to
make a Nativity Scene out of
it. They can't, of course, but
they'll be busy for the next
few hours, which gives you
some time to make:
FESTIVE HOLIDAY EGG-
NOG
Eggnog is a traditional old
beverage that gets its name
from two words, "egg," mean-
ing "egg," and "nog," meaning
"a sound people make in the
bathroom if they have con-
. sumed too much eggnog."
You need a dozen eggs, a
quart of rum and some other
ingredients that I forget.
Begin by separating the egg
whites from the yolks. When
you're done, take a standard
No. 2 pencil and write me a
letter explaining how you did
it, because I never could. I
always end up just drinking
the rum, or, if no rum is avail-
able, beer. Which always puts
me in a good mood to plan
my:
HOLIDAY "SURPRISE"
GIFT PARTY
Invite all your friends, and,
in the invitation, tell them to
bring a wrapped gift with no
name on it. At a given time -
say, 8 p.m. gather all your
guests together and tell them
to go home. Then open the
gifts. If any guests refuse to
leave, threaten to gesso them.
Because you're a busy person
with many more holiday pro-
jects to artend to. Such as get-
ting the mayonnaise off the
dog.

The Ringling museum receives national recognition


Executive Director Dr. John
Wetenhall. "Even though we
appreciate receiving an
award such as this, the true
and lasting reward and testa-
ment to our superb work is
actually the theater itself and
audiences will enjoy that for
many decades to come."
More than 3,000 linear feet
of stock molding was re-gild-
ed for the 18th-century pan-
els by Piurek and Sampson. In


preparation for the restora-
tion of the Historic Asolo
Theater, Piurek and Sampson
were trained in gilding while
attending three workshops at
the Campbell Center for
Historic Preservation Studies
in Mount Carroll, Ill. Their
specialized training and skill
along with Scalera's conserva-
tion expertise and Koncick's
leadership ensured the the-
ater's conservation work was


completed in-house, ulti-
mately saving the Museum
nearly $500,000 and main-
taining continuity even with
construction delays on the re-
installation of the theater
panels.
The newly restored 18th
century Venetian theater
reopened to the public in
grand style in Oct. 2006. A
complete calendar listing of
winter programs can be
accessed by calling 360-7399.

Opera offers placement classes for Spring season


STAFF REPORT


Placement classes for
singers who are interested in
joining Sarasota Youth Opera
will be held Thursday and
Friday, Jan. 11 and 12. The
program is open to all stu-
dents born prior to Nov. 1,
1995, or who are registered in
fifth grade through high
school. All current and
prospective Youth Opera
members are required to
attend both sessions, which
are taught by Maestro Lance
Inouye, Youth, Opera Music
Director. These classes will
help the music staff place
everyone in the appropriate
chorus. Singers do not need
to prepare a song for the
placement exercise. This is
not an audition and anyone
who wants to participate will
be accepted into the pro-
gram. The sessions, which are
from 4:45-6:30 p.m., are held
in the Youth Opera Room of
the Sarasota Opera House.
An orientation for parents
will be held at 6 p.m. on
Friday, Jan. 12. At that time,
Stuart Holt, Director of Youth
Opera Programs; Karl Hesser,
Director of Education; and
Maestro Inouye will share
information about Sarasota
Youth Opera and the upcom-
ing season. It is requested that
someone from each Youth
Opera family attend.
All singers must contact
the Sarasota Opera reception-


ist, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.,
prior to Jan. 11, to reserve a
spot in the placement classes.
This is for returning as well as
new members. Call 366-8450,
press 2 for administrative
offices when prompted, then
zero for the receptionist.
The program admits all who
apply, regardless of skill level
and provides vocal and acting
training. No one is turned away.
Tuition for the program is $100
per term. Partial payments can
be arranged and there are a lim-
ited number of scholarships
available. The Spring term ends
in late April. Highlights of the
Spring 2007 Season include
Outreach Concerts, participa-
tion in the Winter Festival
Mainstage Season, and a spring
concert featuring all the Youth
Opera members.
For more information,
contact Stuart Holt, Director
of Youth Opera Programs, at
(941) 366-8450, ext. 255.

sotaYouth Opera was one of the

America. The choruses include

works to improve skills and pre-
pare students for one of the two

Detailed Plans for the
Upcoming Season:
* The Spring Term will con-
clude with another Sarasota
Youth Opera Concert.
* There will be no Youth
Opera production this
spring because of the
planned renovation of the
Opera House.
The Treble/Mixed Chorus
will participate in the Inter-
national Choral Festival in
Tuscany, Italy in June 2007.
Singers who participate will
spend six days in visiting and
performing in Montecatini
Terme. Florence, Pisa and
Lucca. They will visit the
birthplace of Giacomo
Puccini as well as the thermal
spas that Verdi visited, and in
its 47th season. In 1958 the
company began presenting
chamber-sized repertoire in
the historic 320 seat Asolo
Theater on the grounds of
Sarasota's Ringling Museum
of Art. Recognizing the need
for a theater more conducive
to opera, the company pur-

of Historic Places, opened in
1984 as the Sarasota Opera
House. Since 1983 the com-
pany has been under the
artistic leadership of Victor
DeRenzi. Since then the com-
pany has garnered interna-
tional attention with its
Masterwork Revivals Series,
which presents neglected works
of artistic merit, as well as the
Verdi Cycle producing the com-
plete works of Giuseppe Verdi
Recognizing the importance of
training, Maestro DeRenzi
founded the Apprentice Artist
and Studio Artist programs.
Sarasota Opera also maintains a
commitment to education
through its OPERA-tion perfor-
mances for local schools and
the unique Sarasota Youth
Opera program.
Sarasota Opera's 48th
Season will run from Jan. 27-
March '4. The Winter Opera
Festival will open with
Giacomo Puccini's beloved
"Madama Butterfly." Sarasota
Opera's Masterworks Revival
Series will return when
Poland's national opera
"Halka," by Stanislaw Mon-
iuszko opens on Feb. 3. The
final opera of the season will
be Verdi's dramatic "Attila,"
continuing Sarasota Opera's
Verdi Cycle when it opens on,
Feb. 17. The season will con-
clude on the evening of
March 4 with the Spring Gala
Concert: A Celebration of the
Sarasota Opera House. This
special event will feature


Victor DeRenzi conducting
soloists and the Sarasota
Opera Orchestra and Chorus
in highlights from operas that
have been performed in the
historic theater since it re-
opened in 1984. All operas are
presented at the historic
1,033-seat Sarasota Opera
House. Operas are performed
in their original language with
simultaneous English text
projected above the stage.
Sarasota Opera has
launched Building on the
Vision, a $60-million capital
campaign. The campaign,
which is the largest ever under-
taken by the company, will sup-
port a renovation of the Opera
House, strengthening of its
endowment, and securing its
long-term future through lega-
cy gifts. For more information
about Sarasota Opera's plans,
please contact Peter Hussell,
(941) 366-8450, ext. 416 or

Arts Council, and the National
Endowment ,for the Arts.

PHOTO COURTESY OF NAPSA
The love and support that she received from her son, Eric, helped Nancy Brinker, Komen
Foundation founder and breast cancer survivor, face the disease.


STAFF REPORT

Battling breast cancer can be
more manageable when you
have the support and encour-
agement of friends and family.
Co-survivors know breast can-
cer affects everyone. "People
should not have to face a life-
threatening disease alone." says
Susan Brown, RN, a health edu-
cation manager at the Susan G.
Komen Breast Cancer
Foundation. "Strength is in
numbers."
The Komen Co-Survivor
Program acknowledges, edu-
cates and empowers family
members, friends and health-
care providers of breast can-
cer survivors. "These are the
people who are there for
breast cancer survivors
through diagnosis, treatment
and beyond," Brown said.
Although the Foundation
meets co-survivors' needs by
providing educational infor-
mation and practical tips, the
program also enables co-sur-
vivors to help each other by


sharing support, ideas and
advice on-line. The site
offers these suggestions
based on co-survivors' past
experiences.
How to be an effective
breast cancer co-survivor:
* ":When my close friend was
diagnosed again after five
years, I gathered all of our co-
workers and we turned her
small backyard into a healing
garden ... We gave her a rea-
son to go out and enjoy look-
ing at the birds and flowers."
- Sandy, co-survivor
* "Our woman's club wanted
to help bring comfort to can-
cer patients, so we started
making Breast Cancer
Comfort Pillows ... So far,
we've made about 350 pil-
lows." Jeanne, co-survivor
* "When my aunt was diag-
nosed, we mailed a sheet to
each family member' and
everyone added their hand-
prints in paint to the sheet,
along with a short message
and their name ,One person


made the sheet into a quilt."
-Kelly, co-survivor
* "I helped my friend going
through surgery and chemo
by cataloguing all the kind
notes and gifts of food and
other goodies she received. I
created a whole. index card
- system of names ,and
addresses with gift thoughtl-
fulness noted on each card
and then created all the thank
you notes for her to sign and
send." Jeanie, co-survivor
* "I took over managing the
bills and insurance papers so
she didn't have to see every-
thing and worry. Not having
to deal with that stress
allowed her more time to
relax, catch a nap, talk with
the kids, or do something else
to help refresh." Robert,
co-survivor

Puttin' on a little glitz

Venice just may be the
bling capital of the world. This
year's holiday celebrations
included a lot of sparkle.
Bill Millner wore a dazzling
red hat while directing the
Venice Concert Band in a high
energy holiday concert at the
Venice Community Center.
Vickie Elmore, Dick
Smalley, Les Gowan, Al
Kerstien and Ed Gremp
wowed the audience with
"Santa Claus Comes to
Dixieland." When Joe Russo
finished singing "White
Christmas" someone in the
audience said, "Bing who?"
Audience members were
dressed in sequins and holi-
day shine. They were more
exuberant than ever as they
participated in "The Twelve
Days of Christmas." Santa was
there too.
The Venice Concert Band
knows how to raise the roof.
Its next performance is on
Feb. 26.
Choral captivates audience
Women in the Suncoast
Choral wore large red bows
on their black dresses while
the men wore red ties. The
group looked fantastic and
sounded the same as they
presented their holiday con-
cert conducted by new artistic
director RoyW. Engler.
The program included a
variety of music like the
English Carol "Tomorrow
Shall Be My Dancing Day."
Bonnie Kaiser, - Sylvia
Blakeslee and Don Shipp
gave a whimsical perfor-
mance of "Mary's Little Boy
Child." Roy Engler directed an -
audience sing-a-long of
familiar Christmas music. The
audience gave itself a stand-
ing ovation.
If one of your resolutions
this year is to join a choir, con-
sider the Suncoast Choral.
Call 888-326-8403. Its next
concert is on Feb. 16 at 7:30
p.m. at the Church of the
Nazarene in Venice.
Silver Foxes sparkle
Venice Little Theatre's
Silver Foxes wins the glitter
and glamour prize. These
seniors know the secret to a
good life is singing, dancing
and telling great one liners.
The troupe brought joy
and laughter to the audience
at the Senior Friendship
Center. Gil Weidemiller mes-
merized the group when he
sang, "Have Yourself a Merry
Little Christmas." The dancers
received applause and whis-
tles when they did their high
kicks like the Rockettes at
Radio City Music Hall in New
York City.
Bravo to the Silver Foxes
Singers, the Foxettes and
everyone associated with the,
show.
A special thanks to Debbie
Wilson, Senior Friendship
Center administrator, for
making sure the center rocks.
One of our best
Fred Duda is the special
person of this week. This nice
man knows the secret to hap-
piness is service to others.
Fred works with the Society of
the Blind helping bring
awareness to the community.
Fred is also a member of
the Silver Fox Troupe at the
Venice Little Theatre. He
makes sure the group per-
forms at various locations in


town bringing love and music
wherever they go. Fred Duda
is one of the men who helps
' make Venice great.

Baby needs a "forever
home"! She will be two this
spring, apparently does not
like dogs bigger than her,
but gets along fine with the
small dogs.
She is up to date on shots,
heartguard and is spayed.
She is curious, playful and
friendly. At 61 pounds, she
is small for a Rottweiler, but
from the vet information, is
a Rott mix. She still needs
some basic training. She
spent the first year of her
life tied to a tree with little
or no attention.
Baby would probably do
better in a one dog home,
or one with another dog
that is smaller. Baby would
be best placed in a home
with adults/older children
since she is unaccustomed
to children.
If- you think you have a
place in your home and
heart for a very sweet lov-
ing dog, who just wants to
love you in return, please
call EARS, 941475-0636
and ask about Baby
