Firefighter response time tied to overtime


A proposed cut in overtime pay could have dead-
ly consequences, warn firefighters.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Venice firefighters this
week sounded an alarm over
a proposed cut tp overtime
pay they say could affect the
level of service provided to
the city.
At issue is maintaining
minimum staffing levels.
Currently Venice's Fire Sta-
tion 1 and 3 are each staffed
by a two-person fire engine
team. In case of a fire, one
person works the truck's wat-
er pump while the other
douses flames.
But no firefighter is al-
lowed into a burning building
without a backup.
That's where Fire Station 2
comes in. It's staffed by three
firefighters. They're often first
on the scene of a major fire,
and can enter a fire immedi-
ately.
Arriving first on the scene
of a fire in a two-man engine
means having to wait for a
second engine to arrive be-
fore entering a burning build-
ing.
The additional three min-
utes it may take for a second
engine to arrive can mean the
difference between life or
death, firefighters say.
One minute
But that could all change if
budget cuts to the depart-


BUDGET
WORKSHOP
MONDAY
A Venice budget workshop
is scheduled for Monday,
Aug. 20, at 1 p.m. in city

ment take effect, say firefight-
ers.
It boils down to a proposed
$115,000 cut in overtime pay
in the 2008 city budget to the
city fire department.
"Without that overtime
pay, there will be no one to fill
the third position if someone
calls in sick," explained fire-
fighter Jeff Cripe, the union
representative for Venice's Lo-
cal 2546 of the International
Association of Fire Fighters.
A real life rescue that illus-
trates the point happened last
year when a Venice woman
and a baby were pulled from
her burning home. Because
three firefighters were on the
scene as first responders, they
were immediately able to res-
cue the woman, and go in a
second time to pull the baby

to safety.
They were on the scene in
3 minutes, 30 seconds with a
three-person crew, Cripe said.
Had someone been sick
that day, there would have
been no third person avail-
able because there would
have been no overtime pay to
hire someone to fill in and
they might have had to wait
for a second crew to arrive
before entering the burning
home.


"One more minute, para-
medics said later, and that
baby would have, been lost,"
Cripe said.
"That one person makes
everything happen. In the
time it takes for a second
engine to arrive, a fire can
double in intensity.
"It's the difference between
a viable rescue and recovery."
Conflicts
It was important enough


to firefighters that they were
willing to forgo $62,000 in
incentive or "specialty" pay
bonuses for a year, as long as
they could compensate with
time off as it became avail-
able.
But that idea was "respect-
fully declined" by city man-
agement, Cripe said, because
it conflicted with labor laws
and compensation rules.

Sarasota County faces more layoffs


Pink slips will go out to Sarasota County employ-

Administrator Susan Scot
BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County employ-
ees are bracing for another
round of layoffs next week
totaling as many as 35 jobs,
according to Deputy County
Administrator Susan Scott.


t.

"We're anticipating that
there will be about 25-35
employees that will actually
be impacted," Scott said. "We
have eliminated about 150
full-time equivalent posi-
tions."
A full-time equivalent
means any combination of


part-time positions totaling
40 hours per week. For exam-
ple, two employees working
20 hours each would equal
one full-time equivalent,
Scott said.
Scott said a lot of eliminat-
ed positions were ones that
had just not been filled.
"They were positions that
were open," Scott said.
"Somebody left, somebody
retired and we didn't post the
positions. We just kept them


vacant."
So in effect, those 150 full-
time equivalent eliminations
will only directly affect 25-35
people, Scott said.
Of course, this will come as
cold comfort to those in line
for that pink slip.
"Those people can apply
for other open positions with-
in the organization," Scott
said.

Still of the night


Over on Toledo Blade
Boulevard in North Port, a
builder is almost ready to
show a zero-energy home that
is built to withstand Category
5 hurricanes.
The house costs a little more
initially, but savings on electrici-
ty quickly pay off that invest-
ment. Tropical Bob only wishes
some builder would take the
complete step to an affordable
"off grid" house.
Cisterns, for instance, could
hold captured rain runoff for
treatment. A septic system
could dispose of waste. Xeris-
caping could showcase a yard
needing minimum mainte-
nance. And the moonshine still
in back would make ethanol, of
course.

County workers brace for layoffs


To help pick up the slack, workers could end up watering their own plants
and giving up their personal coffee pots.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Next week is pink slip week
.,for some Sarasota County
employees.
County Administrator Jim
Ley warned of the layoffs
through an employee update
sent to all county government
staff on Aug. 13.
The update states, "We
anticipate that impacted
employees will be notified by
their manager during the
week of Aug. 20. This allows
us enough time to ensure a
fair process while moving
quickly enough to meet our
budget needs."
It probably wasn't meant
as a joke, but the same update
also states the county is
"seeking new revenues in the
form of fees related to high
quality of life services (such as
lawn bowling)" to offset bud-
get reductions. It encouraged
others to continue offering
like-minded suggestions to
increase revenues.
Those on the chopping
block can take some solace in
knowing lawn bowling fees
might be hiked, but what
about other government
workers?
Those who remain may
have to pick up the slack and
assume new duties.
A list of potential measures
was distributed last week to
county executives to react to.
It gives a glimpse into what's
in store.
According to county
spokesperson Bob Reddy, the
list contains some measures
that have already been put in
place, like no longer assigning
maintenance personnel to
building, instead relying on
roving facility sweep teams.
It also contains some mea-
sures that will never see the
light of day.
The facilities services
department is expected to
take a substantial hit in its
budget, up to $1.1 million of
the $9 million the county is
targeting in reductions. No
layoffs are expected there,
according to Reddy, who said
positions will be eliminated
through attrition.
. Here's a few of the depart-
ment's ideas to meet the

er's targeted reductions.
Just a reminder: it's a rough
draft.
Other duties
No. 1 on its list to reduce or
discontinue services is to urge

employees to water plants
within their own work space,
as the "interior plant program
will be reduced to public ser-
vice areas only."
And that trash bin by your
desk? Gone.
"Due to reduced custodial
service levels, food and drink
trash (bins) will no longer be
provided in individual work
areas." You'll need to find the
trash receptacle in common
areas.
Grab that feather duster:
"Occupants will now be
responsible for dusting and
cleaning their personal work-
space to include cubical,
desks, bookshelves and com-


puters."
Leftover food attracting
ants and roaches? The county
will pay for treating it, but "it
will be charged to the appro-
priate business center."
Exterior pest management
will be discontinued. This
includes fine ants, wasps and
bees.
Sweeping of parking lots
and sidewalks and exterior
building pressure-washing
and window-washing is also
being discontinued.
A moratorium placed on
stripping and waxing of floors
and carpet-cleaning has been
extended indefinitely.
Even Old Glory isn't
immune from potential cut-
backs.
"Buildings with flag poles
will either be equipped with
lights to allow the flag to
remain aloft 24/7, or it will
become the responsibility of
building occupants to raise
and lower the flags, or will no
longer have a flag flown."
And if that doesn't draw
your ire, get this: "To reduce
utility consumption within
the county, personal micro-
waves, coffee pots, refrigera-
tors and space heaters will
not be utilized in any person-
al workspace. Facilities (Ser-
vices staff) will notify occu-
pants of violations."
So much for the good life.

'Chicken Little' helps derail


recommendation


Following an impassioned speech by Tom Minnich that River Road could
not handle new development, the Sarasota County Planning Commission
voted 7-1 to deny a rezone petition for a 5-acre tract near the Englewood


Post Office on River Road

BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County Planning
Commissioner Marianne
Reilly affectionately called
Tom Minnich "the Chicken
Little of River Road," follow-
ing his impassioned speech
claiming the overburdened
artery could not handle new
development.
Minnich's "sky is falling"
diatribe contained enough
salient points to sway seven
commissioners Thursday
night at the Robert L. Ander-
son Administration Center.
They voted 7-1 to deny a
recommendation to the
County Commission of a
rezone petition for a 5-acre
tract near the Englewood Post
Office on River Road for five
commercial buildings, which
would total almost ?4,000
square feet. Planning Comm-
issioner Roland Piccone was
the lone dissenter.
"The widening of River
Road has not yet been acco-
mplished and may never be,"
said Minnich, head of the
SouthWest CountyAlliance of
Homeowners Associations.
"We know it is a very danger-
ous road. It is designated as


the major evacuation route
for the South Cape Haze
Peninsula. And it may even be
flooded before the evacuation
order is given."
In pieces
Minnich said that piece-
meal or unplanned develop-
ment on River Road was
"unacceptable."''
Project Agent Brian Lich-
termann, president of Vision
Planning & Design, vehe-
mently disagreed with Minn-
ich.
"This is not piecemeal
development," Lichtermann
said. "This project was part of
a sector plan that went
through a significant public
hearing process and work-
shop process the result of
hundreds of hours of citizens'
input and public hearings."
Lichtermann said the site
qualified "as part of the com-
mercial corridor."
But it was too late. The sky
had fallen on Lichtermann
and his applicant.
Planning Commissioner
Jody Hudgins moved for
denial on the grounds that
the parcel was not large en-
ough to accommodate the
concept plan.


Hudgins was seconded by
Reilly.
"Hats off to Mr. Minnich,
,who constantly comes in here
and is probably perceived by
some as the 'Chicken Little of
River Road,' "Reilly said. "But
in fact, those of us who live
down here know that what he
says is true."
In another River Road mat-
ter, an applicant's request for
a designation change to the
18-acre site at North River
Road and Center Road was
continued until September,
pending a required neighbor-
hood workshop.

Police department targets illegal drugs


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER
The Venice Police Depart-
ment is not large or flush
enough for a narcotics unit.
However, that does not mean
VPD officers are not savvy to
an apparent rise in illegal
drugs in Venice.
"So, we are taking an
aggressive approach to nar-
cotics in targeted areas," Lt.
Tom McNulty said. "We're tar-
geting several (areas) right
now."
For obvious reasons, Mc-
Nulty would not reveal the
exact location of those target-
ed areas.
"We're getting more nar-
cotics cases" McNulty said.
"We're finding more narcotics
on the (traffic) stops we
make."
McNulty said increased

She would summer with her

to put the pushers behind
bars.
"The type of activity asso-
ciated with the sale and use of
narcotics and the various
problems associated with the
traffic to and from such loca-
tions," McNulty wrote,
"should not be inflicted upon
residents and will not be tol-
erated by the Venice Police
Department."
Law enforcement officials
are in general agreement that
illicit drug use breeds an
atmosphere in which other
criminal activity flourishes.
McNulty said the empha-
sis on the ramped up drug
initiative is two-fold: to
enforce the laws with "zero
tolerance" regarding the sale,
possession and use of illicit
drugs; and to protect the
quality of life for Venice citi-
zens.

said, "If you're thinking of
using or selling (drugs) in
Venice don't, because we'll
come after you."
Teamwork
Here's one example of how
the drug initiative works.
First, a surveillance team
was set up to monitor com-
plaints in the city.
Then, on Aug. 2, an opera-
tion was set up in the area of
North Grove Terrace. This was
a result of complaints from
the housing office and resi-
dents and observations by
Venice police officers.
The effort paid off.
Two adults and one juve-
nile were arrested the day of
the operation. More than
$1,000 cash was seized along
with rock cocaine and mari-
juana.

OUR VIEW


Be prepared for storms as season heats up


he emergence of then-Tropical Storm
Dean in the western Atlantic Ocean
on the day after the third anniversary
of Hurricane Charley's landfall in Charlotte
and DeSoto counties was a reminder of the
vigilance required by coastal residents here
and in all hurricane-susceptible areas.
The quiet early months of the 2007 hurri-
cane season, coupled with less-active sea-
sons in recent years, may have lulled some
into a false sense of security. Even for well-
schooled residents who know June and July
are typically inactive months, Hurricane
Dean's romp through the Leeward Islands,
should serve as a siren song: Are you ready?
Perhaps it would be helpful to think of
hurricane preparedness as a team effort.
Our communities are only as strong as the
weakest player on the team.
Even professional football players need


preseason drills and monotonous repetition
to perform at their peak level. We are no dif-
ferent. Drilling preparedness into our mind-
set is the best way to assure we react proper-
ly in the face of a storm.
The most important part of preparedness
is a plan. Such plans include knowing your
storm risk. Are you in a tropical storm surge
zone or a category 5 zone? What is your
home's elevation?
Local emergency management depart-
ments have simple-to-use Internet applica-
tions that will tell you what zone you are in
and what it means in various scenarios. In
Sarasota County, it's allhazards.scgov.net/
stayorgo.aspx or call (941) 861-5000.
A plan also includes knowing your evacu-
ation route; arranging accommodations;
and preparing key records, such as insur-
ance papers, deeds, checkbooks, etc., for a


quick getaway.
Know what shelters will be available in
your area, especially if your family includes a
pet. If you're staying put, your plan should
include stockpiling enough nonperishable
food and water for a week. Drinking water is
vital; a gallon per person per day is essential.
The county emergency management
Web site has a suggested shopping list, and
the National Hurricane Center (www.
nhc.noaa.gov) also offers detailed planning
guides and preparedness tips.
Securing your home is the last step in any
good hurricane plan, but that doesn't mean
waiting until the last minute to be ready to
do so. Many area residents have brand-new
roofs, state-of-the-art shutters and garage
door reinforcement.
Homes rebuilt after Hurricane Charley
had to meet new statewide hurricane codes,


so by virtue of not surviving that storm,
many homes are better equipped to with-
stand storm winds. But the new codes are no
guarantee, so it is best to know your storm
tolerance. If that means leaving, leave. If you
stay, be ready to rough it.
As always, staying on top of tropical
developments is the best way to stay ready.
Learn the key phrases and heed official pro-
nouncements.
Don't be surprised. As we learned from
Hurricane Charley, forecasts aren't precise.
Hurricanes don't follow a script.
You are the most important part of any
hurricane plan. Knowing what to do and
when to do it greatly improves your chances
to survive a storm.
The more residents who take that to
heart, the fewer victims emergency respon-
ders must tend to once a storm hits.


Thank you very much


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


It is hard to decide who to
thank the most. It may be
Gov. Christ and legislators
who worked tirelessly includ-
ing special sessions and hun-
dreds of meetings to come up
with a new and lower proper-
ty tax for the citizens of Flor-
ida.. But it really took the
efforts of Marty Black, city
manager in Venice with the
city council and Jim Ley at the
county with the county com-
missioners to make the big
cuts and bring true property
relief to the taxpayers.
I own a few properties and
the main one, our home in
Nokomis (but not downtown
Nokomis), is the one that
counts the most. Thanks to
Save our Homes and living in
the same place for a long time
our taxes are very reasonable.
We pay just more than $2,600.
So I figured I'd get a break
somewhere around 9 per-
cent, which is what the
administrative budget was
cut, but then I realized that of
course that only represents a
tiny part of what makes up
the budget such as the sher-
iff's costs, which would go up
not down.
So I got my TRIM notice,
which I have no idea what it
means, I assume something
like Taxes for Real estate Is a
Mess (Not good English but
you get the point). This is
noted not to be my final bill
but it likely will be if the bud-
get passes as is. The county
portion is actually down 6
percent. Then there are 10
more things we pay tax on,
some were up and some
down. These include things
like mosquito control and
street lights and emergency
service. For instance, the
school piece is up. That
seemed strange because I just
read a piece by Gary Norris,
superintendent, that said
they were decreasing our
millage for schools. Must not
have been enough to offset
the 3 percent increase in
assessed value. It could be the
tax collector was working
from an early number. When
it is all said and done adding it
all up I am getting a savings of
$37.14. Wow!
When the talk started on
this it sounded like we were
going to get some kind of big


check in the mail. It would be
enough money to really jump
start the economy. I figured
that might mean a vacation
for Sue and I or possibly pay
off a note we have or even do
one of the endless projects at
the house. Instead, it looks
like I might be able to buy one
more rose bush for my garden
or enough gas to go to El
Jobean and have a drink each.
Incidentally the market
value of our home fell
$75,000, while the assessed
value went up. That amount
is the 3 percent that Save Our
Homes gives us. Actually, this
is logical because the as-
sessed value is very low for
the house. Were I to sell it, it
would pop up maybe an
additional $400,000 and the
tax would double or likely
triple.
For another house I have
that is in the city ofVenice, the
situation is a little different
since this is not a homestead-
ed house. That one is a rental
house that I pay almost the
same taxes on as our home
even though the house is less
than half the size. While that
shows what a great deal I have
on our home it does not bode
well for trying to keep rental
rates down, which is a real
problem with trying to pro-
vide affordable housing.
The tax on this one saves
us $9.18 on the county por-
tion (almost enough to buy a'
lunch). I saved $18.68 from
;the city (aren't they gener-
ous). I can thank Marty and
all those city councilmen and
woman. The city savings will
be more than eaten up in the
hike in, water, sewer and
trash hauling fees. Thank you
very much for nothing. In the
tax bill on this house I end up
paying $39.45 more than the
year before. Since my tenet
pays the utilities I guess I
should feel lucky.
It is sort of interesting that
the assessed and market val-
ue went up $10,700 or about 7
percent. It was just reported
this week that house prices in
Manatee and Sarasota are
down about 8 percent. Go
figure.
If I add the net savings I get
from the two properties I end
up paying $2.31 more than a
year ago. Boy, have they given
us some relief. It almost
makes one wonder what in
the heck happened with all of
the money from all of the cuts
(except the sheriff who does-

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Join the team or wave goodbye


Editor:
First let me clarify: I have no vested interest in the develop-
ment of the property around the airport.
I have been on the sidelines quietly listening to both sides
state their case and have been amused and dismayed to see
that not too many are taking a long-termnview from 30,000 feet.
Talk about golf courses, turtles, length of runways, too much
weight on the island oh, my!
The fact is, progress (change) talks and others eventually
walk. This is how our country was built, right, wrong or indif-
ferent.
Sure, we can elect different officials, stop the current pro-
posal, buy some time, but history has shown that on a local,
state or national level, at some point in time, the need for cap-
ital infusion and a way to make a living and a home will always
win.
It may not be today or next year, but long term and with
someone else's vision for the future, the need and desire will
take precedence.
So do we want to unite and prepare for this new frontier
(progress, change) or do we want to divide and eventually be
conquered? We have a choice and no one can take that vote
away from us.
P. E. Davidson

Guns, guns -
who's got the guns?
Editor:
Accountability, account-
ability, accountability we
have none, from the adminis-
tration, the Pentagon and the
general who is running the
show in Iraq.
Previous to his promotion
to "Top Dog" he was assigned
the task of building an Iraqi
Army. Apparently one of his
incentives was a 100,000-gun
give-away to whoever, most
likely the enemy. Russian-

Editor:
It just dawned on me, after
reading about Mitt Romney
and his sons: This is just what
we need, another chicken
hawk in office. As with him-
self, sons and Cheney, they all
had more important things to
do than wage war.
If the senators and repre-
sentatives had their kids

see some real diplomacy in

Treatment for obesity considered 'cosmetic' by most insurance companies


My name is Linda Camp-
bell-Chevalier, and this is my
story.
Seventeen months ago I
weighed 317 pounds. Now I
am 166 pounds lighter and
living a much healthier and
easier life, thanks to lap-band
surgery.
I have been overweight
most of my life. I had tried
every diet out there, some-
times twice or three times
over again. Diet pills, diet
drinks, diet anything you
name it, I have tried it.
In 2002, I had heard of a
weight-loss operation that was
going to be safer than gastric
bypass. It's called the lap-band
system. After a lot of research
and reading, I decided to make
an appointment with a sur-
geon in Port Charlotte.
I was told that most insur-
ance companies do not pay'
for it. I appealed to my insur-
ance company, and it denied
it several times, stating that it
is "cosmetic" surgery. I had to
wait until I could get the


money together on my own.
In 2006, almost four full
years later, my wonderful
husband, Steve, decided to
sell a gift he had inherited to
pay for my surgery, which was
more than $15,000. So, in
2006, I headed off to Port
Charlotte to have the surgery.
After an overnight stay in
the hospital, my new life
began.
Now, don't think that this is
a quick fix to weight loss. This
has been a long, hard strug-
gle.
A lot of people think that
the weight just falls off. Yes,
the lap-band system makes it
easier not to overeat, but you
still need to make smart
choices in food, and you have
to exercise. I do jazzercise
three times a week and
walk/jog three to four miles.
Since my surgery, my
health and energy have great-
ly improved. I was diabetic,
had high blood pressure,
sleep apnea, acid reflux,
wheezing and no energy, not
to mention the back, knee
and foot pain I experienced.
I was constantly out of
breath, in pain and who
knows what I was doing to my
heart. I was slowly, unknow-
ingly killing myself and I
thought I was happy.
I am now off of most of my
medications. My body mass
index was an unhealthy 53;
now it is 22. My energy level is
wonderful.
But I am very upset and
disappointed with my health


insurance carrier. It has re-
fused to pay a penny for
surgery to make me healthier,
but it was willing to pay for
my medications and would
have paid $17,000 for knee re-
placement surgery caused by
my obesity.
It wouldn't help me rid
myself of the cause of the
problem, but it would have
willingly continued to pay for
my expensive medications,
diabetic supplies and care for
other health hazards that
would have evolved due to
my obesity. My health was
declining, and it would have
no problem paying for these
health problems and the
aftermath.
I just don't get it.
Insurance companies will
pay for a vasectomy, tubal lig-
ation, abortion or penile im-
plant, but not something that
was desperately needed to
improve my health, stating it's
"cosmetic." I had medical
issues that my primary care
physician put into letters and
documents stating that it was
in my best health interest to
have this- .surgery.
People drink and become
alcoholics, suffer from cirrho-
sis of the liver; take drugs and
become addicted, then con-
tract AIDS from dirty needles;
smoke and develop lung can-
cer, and the insurance com-
pany will pay for counseling,
medications, treatments and
hospital stays.
I did not choose to be
obese, but I do have to eat


every day to live. You don't
have to drink, smoke or take
drugs to live, but the insur-
ance company will reward
this type of behavior by taking
care of these people who have
a "disease." Why not care for
the obese people who have
no choice in their lives re-
garding their "disease"?
How can they justify pay-
ing to care for a person who
made bad choices versus
those who have no choice?
I had offered to split the
cost to prove that I was seri-
ous to get the weight off, but
again, the company.denied it,
stating it was "cosmetic." This
just seems unreasonable to
me.
Now here I am, weighing in
at about 138 pounds 17
months later. My life is so
much better, fuller, happier
and so much healthier.
So I made another request,
to see if the company would
pay to remove my excess skin.
My thighs, buttocks and sto-
mach area have so much sag-
ging skin that I get constant
infections. It is becoming
more painful to exercise due
to the fact that the hanging
skin pulls so hard when I run
or jog.
I treat my skin daily with
medications to keep the in-
fections at bay, but the com-
pany denied me again, saying
that it is "cosmetic." Get a
clue.
So that is my story. I hope
,that it helps anyone who is
looking for help. Insurance

How about 'no grouch' zones?


Sign in. I would like to see
"No grouchy old people"
signs posted at restaurants. I
have three children who are
very well behaved. I have lived
in this area all of my life, and I
have just as much right to
take my children and go out
to eat as any of the older peo-
ple who live in this area. It
saddens me that I live in an

Real problems. We've liv-
ed in Venice for almost 30
years and our motto has gone
from, '"Another day in par-
adise," to, "The sky is falling,
the sky is falling." Friends and
neighbors who have lived
here even longer than we
have are moving away in.
droves. Shops on our once
beautiful Venice Avenue are
disappearing and leaving
nothing but brown paper in
their windows. Roads are in
decay and plans to repair or
improve are slow or not even
on the docket. Taxes and
insurance are out of control
and nothing is being done to
effect real change. Builders
who haven't gone bankrupt
want to add more empty
homes and condos to the
market without any concern
for adding the infrastructure
to maintain the community.
These problems are real, and
all of us need to face facts and
do something before the sky
really does fall in Venice and
the rest of our beautiful state.
Mass appeal. In answer to
your question, should money
be diverted from road con-
struction to develop more
mass transportation: abso-
lutely yes. It should have been
done a long time ago. If
Congress hadn't acquiesced
to the auto industry and the
oil companies, taking the
trains off the roads, we would
have been in a much better
situation. We would have
trains to take us. We would

World's Largest Boat Sale



to be held by MarineMax

Punta Gorda location of nationwide sale to be held at the new Laishley Park Marina


PUNTA GORDA, FL -What do you do if you
are the world's largest boat dealer and have new
2008 models in route for delivery?
Jim Shepard, MarineMax Cape Haze General
Manager, explains, "We're overstocked. I don't
think we can park another boat on our lot and we
have new shipments on the way.

World's largest dealer is overstocked
and offers deals of a lifetime
on new and used boats
"I know if we held the World's Largest Boat Sale
that would help, and if we offer to sell our
remaining inventory of new and used boats
at the lowest prices of the year, that would
probably do the trick. So, that's exactly what we're
going to do, starting this Thursday, August 16.
"Sure," continued Shepard, "selling new and
used boats at these prices is unusual. But with new
boats on the way and no place to put them,
we have no other choice."
Just what kind of discounts can customers
expect? Shepard went on, "Customers can save
several ways. Manufacturers, like Sea Ray,
are offering their most aggressive incentives
of the year, like the Summer Never Ends
promotion, which can save customers up to
$100,000. In addition, MarineMax is offering
our own incentives."

Sea Ray offers it's most generous
incentives of the year with
Summer Never Ends savings
Our best selling Sea Ray, the Sea Ray 175 Sport
will be sold with payments as low as $169 a month*
to qualified customers!
"If that isn't enough," Shepard said,"we'll offer
used boat discounts as high as $50,000. For


example, we have a
2004 380 Sundancer,
stock number 64390.
It will be sold for
$50,000 off our
regular price, for
only $179,800!"
"Even though these
prices are low, no short
cuts will be taken on
what we're famous
for the MarineMax
experience!" Shepard
explained.
"At MarineMax,
there are never any
hidden charges. Even
freight and prep are
included. Our All-
Inclusive Value Pricing


also means that every
customer will get what they need to get on the
water, like a Go Boating Gear Kit which includes
Coast Guard safety equipment-even a full tank
of fuel!"
Every customer receives a professional
Captain's Delivery and orientation to feel totally
confident and comfortable in operating their boat,
whether you are a first-time boater or moving up
to a larger boat.
Only MarineMax creates exclusive events like
MarineMax Getaways!", (exclusive trips organized
by MarineMax so you can experience the boating
lifestyle with other owners) and classes for the
whole family. It all adds up to a total experience
you can't find anywhere else.
Sales managers have been instructed to move all
new and used boats, according to Shepard,
"I've never seen so much quality inventory on


one lot. We need to move these boats quickly.
Financing and insurance is available on the spot
with practically no down payment on approved
credit...We'll make it quick and easy for anyone
who's in the market for a good new or used boat
to get one at this sale for a very low price."
Shepard continued, "We really want to move
boats during this sale. Our finance managers
will be on site to secure very low finance rates."
The Punta Gorda location of the World's
Largest Boat Sale will be held Thursday, August 16
through Sunday, August 19 at the new Laishley
Park Marina, 100 East Retta Esplanade. Located
in Charlotte Harbor, on the north side of the

FROM RICHARD MARKS

The Venice Italian-Amer-
ican softball team had to
come from behind in both
games to upend the Venice
Senior Tuesday All Stars by
scores of 11-9 and 17-14 in
Thursday's classic match-
up.


The first game was won by
key RBI doubles by Bill Bloom
and Ron Defina.
In the second game, the
Italians scored eight runs in
the last inning which featured
homers byVinny Remsen and
Sam Davis.
The leading hitters for the
victors (22-2) were Matt Cal-


lahan and Jack Walters with
seven hits each and Ron
Defina and Frank Guicardo
with six hits.
The Venice All Stars were
led by Al Philips with seven
hits and solid contributions
from Ernie Barton, Jim Phel-
an, Jay Roeertson, Cliff Strat-
ton and Dale Rowe.


FROM SUSAN LOOMIS


Venice Challenger baseball
recently ended another
championship season. Spring
ball started in February and,
)- after playing 12 games-and a
tournament in Fort Myers,
the season ended at Ed Smith
Stadium against the Sarasota
Reds. Once again, Venice
Challenger continued its tra-
dition as the winningest pro-
gram in Sarasota County with
no losses in seven years.
The Challenger Division of
Little League Baseball is for
every person who, for what-
ever reason, is unable to par-
ticipate on a regular Little
League baseball team. "No
mental or physical challenge
can stop a child from playing
Challenger baseball," said
Coach Rich Carroll.
In the Challenger Division,
every player gets to bat and
plays the field in every inning.
Siblings, friends and volun-
teers from community orga-
nizations serve as "base bud-
dies" to help the kids around
the bases, if necessary. The
whole family and community
can get involved, and every
team is a winner.
Each season, the Venice
Challenger program grows.
Last year, Sarasota had to
cancel their program, so
Venice went from 27 to 48
children.
In the first game of the sea-
son, Moose Lodge 1308 came
to play ball. On the senior
field, Mike Motycka had a
great game smashing three
singles. Also sparking theVen-
ice Pythons were Nick Kunz
and Wes Wright. In the junior
game, Austin Osboum led the
way with four hits. Cooper
Bishop and Chandler Smith
had outstanding plays in the
field.
Play with VHS teams
The next game of the sea-
son was at North Port High
School, buddying up with the
North Port High baseball
team. Matt Griffin had a dou-
ble, and Ben Read had the
crowd roaring with a two-run
single. J.T. Despres made a
key play in the field, along
with crushing the ball to cen-
ter.
The following Saturdays
were al Venice High School
with the boys baseball and
girls ,olfhall teams. Jack
Smith and John Liska had
outstanding games. Clint

Calhoun hit for the cycle. The
crowd really enjoyed watch-
ing the games under the
lights. Coaches Rich Lomas
and Bill Dooley had tough
pitching assignments with
such great hitters as Matt and
Chris Tomsha and Erin
Atkinson.
The next weekend, Venice
High's Interact Club helped
out and encouraged all the
players. Steve Griffith and
Jonathan Chace had tie-
breaking singles in two excit-
ing games. Brandon Hastings
smashed the ball to left for a
triple, and Robbie Dixon hit.
one of his many home runs.
Riverside Bank joined the
fun for the next games. Dan-
ny Frank and George Assif
crushed the ball for run-scor-
ing singles. Adam Carmona
raced around the bases for a
triple.
The month of April
brought out players from the
Men's Senior Softball League,
the Outback Little League
and friends., Luke Garske
played strong in the field and
at the plate. Josh Compton
rallied the team to victory.
Brandon Gerzeny and Clint
Faulkner each had two dou-
bles. i Eden Logan, David
Carver and William Hobson
played tough defense.
Statewide tourney
The first weekend in May,
several of the players and
coaches traveled to Fort
Myers for the fifth annual
Challenger Statewide Tourn-
ament. Coach Carroll and
Coach Wade Wright encour-


aged the players to victory.
Sam Lomas hit a bunt single
and stole second. Todd Ecock
and Brian Jandreau crushed
the ball. Coaches Tim Dixon,
Tim Osbourn and Steve
Gerzeny cheered the players
on.
The regular season con-
cluded with Wal-Mart em-
ployees as buddies. Dorota
Moszczynska showed her hit-
ting abilities, and Christian
Hannah and Ben Solomon
both had awesome games.
The season ended at Ed
Smith Stadium with the Sara-
sota Reds playing side-by-
side with the Venice Chal-
lenger Pythons. The crowd
was on their feet for all the
players and coaches for an
outstanding season, thanks to
all the buddies and families.
In addition to all of the
groups and organizations
that helped at games
throughout the season, Mr.
and Mrs. Jason Graber of
Frontier Excavating donated
four tickets to four Devil Rays
games in the Kanes Club
behind the plate.

$1.4 billion leap of faith could top autumn ballot


A 15-year extension of the 1-cent local-option sales has been proposed. County
commissioners are divided on whether to put it on the Nov. 6 ballot.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A whopping $1.4 billion
roll of the dice will face
Sarasota County leaders Aug.
27 when they return from
their six-week summer break
and decide whether to put a
local-option sales tax exten-
sion question on this
autumn's general election
ballot.
Some county commission-
ers aren't confident a Nov. 6
referendum on the subject
would pass and want to put it
off for awhile, while others
would prefer to take a leap of
faith with voters rather than
wait for property tax cut
rhetoric to
heat up again
at the state
level next
year.
"I don't know
whether there
is public sen-
timent to look
at a sales-tax
extension
with all the
other tax stuff to explain,"
Commissioner Shannon
Staub said in early July. "We
need a focused, concerted
effort. I'd like to see us look at
.next March."
Commission Chair Nora
Patterson disagreed.
"I'm inclined to favor
November," she said. "If we
delay and hold a special elec-
,tion it will
post a lot of
-money. Even
though
experts tell us
-t's not a good
idea, I don't
object to a ref-
erendum this
year." o atterson
When?
What has chilled some
.commissioners is the state
legislature's recent efforts to
mandatee local property tax
cuts of up to 9 percent, plus
treats to compound the situ-
ation through a proposed
constitutional amendment
and additional actions in the
2008 session.
The county's 1-cent local-
piption sales tax currently rais-
es more than $74 million a
year. A little less than half is
divided between the Sarasota
,County school system, North
Port, Longboat Key, Sarasota
and Venice, while the county
receives a lion's share, $37.8
million.
Based on estimates, an
extension of the 1-cent local
tax from 2009 through 2024
would generate a total of $688
million for the county, $351
million for schools, $145 mil-
.lion each for North Port and
the city of Sarasota, $62 mil-
lion for Venice and $12 mil-
lion for Longboat Key.
"It would be nice to get this
passed," Deputy County Ad-
Iministrator David Bullock
said, "because we could move
.forward some important pro-
jects. We would know the
money is coming and could
borrow at cheap rates. The
questionn is: When do we go
with this?"
-Voters approved the collec-
tion of an optional "penny
.ales tax" beginning in 1989
for 10 years, then extended it
through 2009. If they extend it
again through 2024, it will be
the third time they have sup-
ported the revenue raising
measure for local government
operations.
Deadline
In an effort to establish bud-
get priorities before a referen-
4dum, the county commission
approved a long list of projects
*and programs that would be
funded out of the $688 million
windfall if voters support an
extension. Half of them would
be geared to transportation.
The biggest single expendi-
ture $122.5 million -


,,would be for road resurfacing
'between the years 2010 and
'2014, while $40 million would
,be allocated to a massive side-
walk program and $35.7 mil-


lion to improvements at
major intersections.
Road projects
An ambitious list of road
projects would receive $64


million of the tax revenue.
They include additional traf-
fic lanes and improvements
along portions of Bee Ridge
Road, Honore Avenue, Lock-
wood Ridge Road and.


McIntosh Road.
Also identified in the trans-
portation project list is $9.8
million for countywide pro-
jects that would add trees and
landscaping within road
rights of way, which is an
extension of a program that
has planted more than 17,000
street trees since the early


1990s.
Among projects not asso-
ciated with transportation,
the county's water, sewer and
drainage programs would
receive almost $100 million,
park programs almost $64
million and environmental
programs to upgrade surface
waters almost $22 million.


The deadline for Elections
Supervisor Kathy Dent to
receive Nov. 6 ballot language
is Sept. 14. If the county
delays, it could put the issue
before voters in January when
Florida holds its presidential
primary, at a special election
in the spring, or.the general
election next November.

Venice wildlife center the last one in county


A wildlife rehab center in Venice is the last
place left in Sarasota County to treat injured
wild animals. It needs zoning approval in
September to be able to continue its work.


Kevin Barton, co-owner of the Wildlife Center of Venice, is currently
caring for baby birds, including these monk parakeets, or quaker
parakeets. The center has seen hundreds of birds and a fair share of
mammals that have been rehabilitated and released.


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT
EDITOR
A sandhill crane hangs in a
makeshift hammock, its legs
dangling beneath it. One leg
was swollen with an infection
from a compound fracture.
"This guy was one of five
that were brought in to us,"
said Kevin Barton, one of the
co-owners of the Wildlife
Center of Venice Inc. "He got
to see the four recover, but his
injuries were more extensive.
We made this sling so he
wouldn't have to put so much
weight on the leg. But it's get-
ting stronger."
The compound fracture
was most likely caused by a
golf ball, Barton said a
common injury among sand-
hill cranes because they fre-
quent golf courses.
The crane is just one of
dozens of birds, mammals
and other animals treated by
the wildlife center. It is now
the only wildlife recovery
center in all of Sarasota
County.
Last year, the Amber .Lake
center in Englewood and the
Pelican Man in Sarasota both
closed their doors, leaving
only this site in Venice to help
thousands of wild animals
recover every year.
To keep operating, the
center has a major hurdle to
clear next month. Barton and
co-owner Linda Schrader are
seeking approval from
Sarasota County to continue
the operation.
S-rasota's zoning code
does not have a category for
"wildlife rescue." The closest
business type is "animal hos-
pital."
Hope
Barton and Schrader hope
the county planning commis-
sion will approve their facility
as an animal hospital when
they formally present their

HOW YOU CAN HELP
Volunteer
Help is needed at the Wildlife
Center of Venice Inc. to care
for the animals. It also n ids
people who can help build
and repair cages. Finally, it
needs people who can drive
to a location to pick up an
injured animal and bring it to
the center for treatment. The
center will provide all the
training.
Donate
Send a check. You can also
donate animal equipment
such as feed bowls or cages.
To volunteer or donate, call
the center at (941) 484-9657.
You can also visit its huge
yard sale, 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Sept.
1 and 2, at 3252 Border
Road, Venice.


plans on Sept. 20.
"The category isn't exactly
right because it's designed for
a retail business, so under the


rules we have to have handi-
cap parking spaces, even
though we're not open to the
public," Barton said.
But if the plans are
approved, they can continue
to care for injured wildlife.
They have had to spend
thousands on engineering
fees, legal fees and site plans.
"We'd rather spend it
directly on the wildlife, but it's
something we need to get
through," Barton said.
For the birds ... mostly
Barton said volunteers for
the Wildlife Center of Venice
come to pick up animals, sav-
ing animalofficers some time.
They receive animals from all
over Sarasota County, includ-
ing Englewood, Venice,
Nokomis and Sarasota.
The majority of "patients"
are birds, including pelicans,
ospreys, even parrots. Even a
bald eagle from North Port
was brought to the center for
treatment.
Because the animal hospi-
tal category requires a 75-foot
setback from all property
lines, Barton said they had to
move some of the cages and
sheds where recovering ani-
mals are housed. He has plans
to build some new enclosures
to replace what was lost, but
he is confident they can
squeeze in the cages and
aviaries they need in the 5-

HITA HIGH NOTE 3B


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

When Eileen Maris Cohen
found out there was an op-
portunity to photograph pan-
das in China, she was excited.
In her haste to plan her
trip, she ignored the one small
stipulation the Chinese con-
sulate issued she had to
shovel out the panda cages at
night.
"I really thought they were
kidding when they said we
had to clean out cages,"
Cohen said, "but they most
definitely were not."
Cohen was part of an elite
group of 12 photographers
who spent four days at the
Sichuan-Wolong Nature Res-
erve in China learning about
animals on the endangered
species list of the World
Wildlife Fund, whose symbol
is the panda.
The 494,000-acre reserve,
'located east of Mt. Qionglai, is
the largest and best-known
panda reserve in China. It is
located 6,500 feet above sea
level in the lush mountains of
the Sichuan Providence. It's a
key nature preservation area,
designed primarily to protect
and breed the giant panda.
Currently the reserve cares
for about 60 captive pandas,
including 20 cubs born in the
past four years. Reserve staff
and volunteers also conduct
research on panda breeding
and bamboo ecology, the
panda's major food.
"We were only shoveling
part of the day, then taking
pictures and feeding the pan-
das during the other part,"
Cohen said.
Another of the photogra-
phers' tasks was to take hold
of the arm of a baby panda
and give it a little pinch._
"They wanted the babies to
get accustomed to the feel of a
prick just in case they had to
take medications by injec-
tion," she said.
Each day Cohen was
allowed to play with the
younger pandas. She was able
to take photographs of the
giant ones from a distance.
"We were only able to
interact with the babies," she
said. "It was considered too
dangerous for us to get near
the larger ones because they
are less predictable."
Big bamboo
Pandas depend on bam-
boo for their survival. It
makes up 99 percent of their
diet.
Bamboo is not very nutri-
tious, so giant pandas need to
eat a lot to get through a day.
They eat the stems, shoots
and leaves. A full-grown
panda may feed constantly
for 12 hours, just to get a day's'
nutrition.
"They are very picky eaters
and won't touch the bamboo
unless it is fresh," Cohen said.
"'Another of our tasks was to
clean the bamboo so they
would be tempted to eat it."
Cohen and the group
soaked.the bamboo in water
to soften it for the cubs.
She found that the pandas

Baby pandas born at the reserve have the rare experience of playing with another cub. Wild pandas rarely encounter other pandas at such an early age.





Panda-mon i um

Despite international support and intense effort by researchers, the cuddly black-and-white panda is critically
endangered, according to the Panda Research and Conservation Facility in Chengdu, China. ,


had a preference for arrow
bamboo, which flowers every
60 years. It takes at least 10
years for new arrow- root
bamboo to become edible for
pandas. Researchers
have established that pandas
strip bamboo leaves and cre-
ate a bundle in their mouth.
Arrow bamboo requires sig-
nificantly fewer bites and less
time for the pandas to create
this bundle of leaves than
other species of bamboo.
Encroachment
China has more than 1 bl-
lion people. As people build
more cities and farms and use
up more natural resources,
giant pandas lose their
homes.
Because bamboo is the
most important plant in a
panda's life and because it
takes so many hours each day
for them to eat it, that puts
them at a high risk for extinc-
tion.
"The bamboo grows natu-
rally in certain areas, but
much of the land has been
encroached on," Cohen said.
"Like everywhere else, there is
building going on and this
development takes up pre-
cious land resources where
bamboo grows."
Forestry authorities in
Southwest China's Sichuan
Province are trying to intro-
duce other types of bamboo
to the pandas. Farmers are


being told to immediately
report any panda sightings,
and patrolmen are being sent
to monitor the reserve where
arrow bamboo flowers.
To date, there have been
no reports about pandas
becoming sick due to a lack of
food.
Breeding hope
Female pandas conceive
just once a year and art fertile
for only three days. Males in
captivity sometimes either
show a serious lack of interest
or are incompatible with the
females and become aggres-
sive rather than amorous
toward them.
"If you think they are picky
eaters, they also make picky
mates," said Cohen.
Because the food sources
are spread out on the reserve,
pandas tend to wander all
over searching for bamboo.
Getting two pandas together
for breeding becomes a chal-
lenge, Cohen said.
When natural mating fails,
researchers may try artificial
insemination with frozen
sperm.
"With 22 babies being
born, they have had great
success with the in-vitro fer-
tilization," Cohen said. "I was
actually in a pen with 11 1-
year-old pandas.
Giant pandas are only
about the size of a stick of
butter at birth, and they're

Sichuan Province, it is known as the home of giant pandas.


hairless and helpless. The
panda mother gives great care
to her tiny cub, usually
cr~idling it in one paw and
holding it close to her chest.
Experience of a lifetime
In the reserve, there are
more than 4,000 species of
plants, including species of
ancient and rare trees, some
imported. There are also 200
species of medicinal plants.
Fifteen types of azaleas
have been discovered there.
In autumn, myriad blossoms
and tree leaves of various col-
ors decorate the mountains.
Besides pandas, the re-
serve has 100 species of
mammals and 200 species of
birds.
Wildlife observation spots
in the reserve attract explor-
ers, tourists and animal lovers
as well as scientists and pho-
tographers. Every year more
than 100,000 visitors come to
the reserve.
"It wvas an experience of a
lifetime," Cohen said.

The News from


FINE WHINES 4


Back by popular demand


BY TED RANK
STAFF ESCRITOR

Hang on to your sanity,
ladies and gentlemen. It's
time for News from
Ecineville.
D-Day, America's Bicen-
tennial celebration, the 1964
World's Fair, Woodstock, the
Burning Man Festival and
other world events all take a
great deal of preparation
and planning. That signifi-
cant planning has been
happening in Ecineville for
one of our town's most
important events of the year
- THE FIRST DAY OF
SCHOOL.
Tomorrow thousands of
screaming, drooling, run-
ning, nonstop-talking, laugh-
ing and sweet children will
descend on our schools for
the first day of formal
instruction in becoming
mature, creative, responsi-
ble and caring members of
society.
Also tomorrow, hundreds
of teachers will brace them-
selves for the 2007 day that
will live in infamy.
Mary Teachdemwell has
been a teacher at Ecineville
Elementary School for 32
years.
The Ecineville Sun re-
cently sat down with


Teachdemwell for a trip
down memory lane about
"first days" of schools.
"When I look back on all
the wonderful events and
life moments I've had in 32
years of teaching, I wouldn't
trade them for anything,"
Teachdemwell said.
"But there sure were
some things I'll never forget
about first days."
Here's some quotes from
Teachdemwell about mem-.
ories of first-day incidents
EES.
"Gum everywhere. I
remember back in the late
'70s I saw two girls hair stuck
together with a large wad of
gum; a teacher was franti-
cally trying to separate,
them."
"One year we lost first-
grader Timmy Yeath.. We
finally found hii hiding in a
janitor's mop bucket. Seems
he was in the hallway when,
he thought he shouldn't be.
When a teacher appeared,
fearing he'd be in trouble he
jumped into the janitor's
mop bucket. We found him
an hour later, a little wet, but
unharmed."
"Then, of course, there
was a new teacher one year
who was locked in the sup-
ply closet by his fourth-
grade class. The rumor was


he never formally signed his
paperwork resigning. When
two vice principals broke
through the barricaded
doors and let this teacher
out of the supply closet, he
simply walked out to his car,
drove away and no one ever
heard from him again.
"One year as all the stu-
dents were leaving the cafe-
teria after listening to first-
day greetings from adminis-
trators, a fifth-grade boy
yelled 'snake.' It looked like
the running of the bulls.
Children flying everywhere."
And it's not just teachers
having fun on the first day of
school.
For the last two years,
four retired friends have
enjoyed a new first-day-of
school-event at EES.
"We call it 'Parent
Demolition Derby Day,' "
said John Bells.
Bells and longtime bud-
dies, Mike Zimbellis, Walter
Brennenbell and Bill "The
Bell" Apple have met since
the new EESopened in 2005
to watch more than 125 cars
gather at the same time to
drop off their children at
EES.
"It's hysterical," Zimbellis
said.
Cars everywhere, some
driving on the wrong side of


the road. Parents running
their children through traf-
fic.
Brennenbell, a retired
road architect, says he's
taken video of the EES drop-
off and entrance driveways
and sent them to friends all
over the country.
"Gives 'em a laugh,"
Brennenbell said.
This reporter wishes all of
our dedicated and brave
teachers a big old fashioned
Ecineville "Good Luck"
tomorrow.
Well, this is Ted "I'm a
reporter, I'm a reporter"
Rank reporting. I'll see you
next issue with more news
from Ecineville. Until then,
remember, no gum chewing'
while reading this column.
Did you hear me? OK, give
me that gum, right now,
young lady! There is no gum
chewing today here in
Ecineville.

Animal Services Adoption Program


Children First receives grant to

help 'Nurturing Dads' stay in touch


The 1999 Nurturing Dads Class # 1
than 1,100 fathers.

FROM CHILDREN FIRST

Children First recently
received a grant of $25,000
from the Bank of America
Client Foundation to estab-
lish a Nurturing Dads Initi-
ative Alumni Association. The
Nurturing Dads Initiative
(NDI) has taught the popular
Nurturing Dads Class in Sara-
sota and Manatee Counties
since 1999. More than 1,100
fathers have graduated from
the course, which is held sev-
eral times a year at various
locations.
The grant from the Bank of
America Client Foundation
will support the establish-
ment of the NDI Alumni
Association and the develop-
ment of a strategic plan. The
Alumni Association will help
keep graduates in contact
with each other and with

was the first of the Children First programs that has helped more


Children First. Over the years,
class graduates have helped
to advertise the course by
passing out literature at local
events, speaking to groups in
which they are involved and
just talking about the class
with friends, co-workers and
acquaintances. The Alumni
Association will help to for-
malize this involvement and
also give graduates the op-
portunity to help raise funds
to sustain the project in the
future.
The Nurturing Dads Class
has graduated men from
every walk of life: teachers
and tradesmen; teen fathers
and grandfathers; adoptive
-fathers and stepfathers, unc-
les, coaches, clergymen and
the guy next door.
The course is based on a
curriculum created by local
family therapist Mark Perl-


man. The course focuses on
teaching men the skills to be
good fathers. Most men want
to be great dads and they
want their children to grow
up to be happy, healthy
adults. The class helps fathers
understand the effect their
words and actions have on
their kids. Family members
are invited to attend the grad-
uation ceremony.
Children First is the Head
Start program in Sarasota
County and provides pre-
school services to 560 chil-
dren birth to 5. For more
information on preschool
services, call Hope Kinney,
Program Director. For infor-
mation on the Nurturing

SPECIAL TO THE
GONDOLIER SUN


Much of what we have
recently learned about the
military and veterans health
care systems is unflattering.
The House Oversight and
Government Reform Comm-
ittee's Subcommittee on Nat-
ional Security and Foreign
Affairs conducted hearings in
March to investigate charges
that military healthcare at
Walter Reed Army Medical
Center was substandard.
CNN reported that "Annette
McLeod, wife of Cpl. Wendell
McLeod, who received an
injury to his head in the war,
said her husband has been
through the nightmares of the
Army medical system."

President Bush subse-
quently created a bipartisan
presidential commission to
examine the state of health
care provided injured military
members. Most recently, Wa-
shington Post.com printed a
June 14 story by Associated
Press writer Hope Yen an-
nouncing that a Senate panel


"voted to -expand brain
screenings and counseling for
wounded veterans of the Iraq
war and to reduce red tape for
service members moving
from Pentagon to Veterans
Affairs care."
Why?
Because, according to Yen,
the vote came after it was
decided by military and polit-
ical officials that something
needed to be done immedi-
ately to quell the nation's wor-
ries that military and veter-
ans' health care needed sig-
nificant improvement.
All of this 'bad' news got
me to thinking about my
neighbor and close personal
friend, Ron Waldron, a 48-
year-old man who suffered a
serious traumatic brain injury
at age 22 while serving in the
Navy.
I wondered how he was
treated by the naval hospital
in San Diego, at Bethesda
Naval Medical Center in
Maryland, the Woodrow
Wilson Rehabilitation Center
in Waynesboro, Va., and the

Former Vietnam Special Forces officer



talks about SEAL team shootout in Iraq


DON MOORE
COLUMNIST


Dr. Mark Bills, a Venice
dentist, served in Vietnam in
the late 1960s as a member
of the C.C.N. special opera-
tions group that worked
behind enemy lines with
small groups of Montagnard
tribesmen spying on enemy
activities. It was an extremely
dangerous job.
He received the Silver Star,
two Bronze Stars with Vs for
valor, a Combat Infantry-
man's Badge, six Air Medals,
Senior Parachute Badge,
Vietnam Gallantry Medal
with Silver Star, Vietnam
Special Forces Jump Wings
and two Vietnam Service
Medals.
Bills e-mailed me this story
about a Navy SEAL in Iraq
whose team got caught in a
shootout with insurgents and
survived to tell about it.
'A recent SEAL operation
left one SEAL KIA (killed in
action) and another very


severely injured. We always
hear the sad stories about
fatalities in the war, so I
thought it would be nice to
share one focused on a sur-
vivor.
"For obvious reasons, I
won't state the team nor the
full names of the men in this
particular operation. I will
state that the injured man's
name is Doug and we will
leave it at that.
"The team was tracking a
targeted insurgent who had
apparently fired an RPG at a
U.S. helicopter. The team was
clearing a house when Doug
and his buddy kicked in a
door and ran right in on four
hadjis with AK-47s who
immediately opened fire on
the two SEALS.
"Doug's partner was KIA
almost instantly. It happened
so quickly they did not even
have time to react to the four
awaiting bad guys. It is amaz-
ing Doug was able to survive.
In the initial hail of gunfire.
Doug had his M4 shot out of
his hands and lost part of a
finger.
"This happened before he
was even able to fire a shot.
Since it happened so quickly,
there was no opportunity to
take cover. Instead of running
and ducking for cover, realiz-
ing he lost his M4, he drew his
9mm sidearm. Doug was shot
17 times with AK47 fire! Three
shots hit the SAPI plate on his


body armor in the chest and
they were deflected. Twelve
rounds went through his
body (entered and exited soft
tissue areas), one round went
in between his two testicles.
"The final round hit the
bottom of his SAPI plate
and entered and lodged into
his lower abdomen. He has
a temporary colostomy bag
while healing but no per-
manent damage thank God.
"In the midst of this bar-
rage of gunfire sustained by
Doug, he still managed to
draw his sidearm and with 18
rounds of 9mm ammunition
he managed to eliminate all
four bad guys. That shows
what a determined SEAL is
capable of doing with proper
training. Keep in mind -
with 18 rounds he needed to
take them all out and the
magazine holds 15. That
means he had to do a maga-
zine exchange during the
fight!
"And this all happened
with Doug in the middle of an
ambush with a KIA team-
mate, himself trapped inside
a doorway getting sprayed
with automatic gunfire anid
returning fire with a pistol.
With the 9mm pistol he said it
took numerous shots to take
down each bad guy. One he
had to finally take down with
a head shot.
"This all went down before
the rest of his team closed in


on this exact position. They
were in other areas of the
clearing area and courtyard
searching for bad guys as
well.
"Doug was evacuated and
spent two days at Walter
Reed. He then took convales-
cent leave to spend some
time with his wife and family
after this very close call.
Before he was discharged
from Walter Reed and sent on
his leave, Adm. Olsen wanted
to meet with him and to pin
his awards on him.
"While speaking with
Adm. Olsen and the team's
senior chief, Doug told
them that he wants to get
back to the team as soon as
possible or at least do some-
thing at Little Creek (the
SEAL training base on the
East Coast) as an advanced
instructor.
/ 'Adm. Olsen thought for a
moment and then told the
senior chief to schedule Doug
as soon as possible to attend
firearms training.
"Doug was confused and
immediately pointed out that
he had already attended all
the basic and advanced fire-
arms training and was even
an instructor for advanced
handgun training for some of
the East Coast teams.
"Adm. Olsen replied, 'Well
young man, I guess you're
gonna have to go back as a
student because I under-


stand you killed four bad
guys during the firefight, but
you had to do a magazine
exchange. Aren't there 15
rounds in the magazine?
Why, if you had so many
rounds in the weapon, did it
take you that many rounds
to put down the bad guys?
Obviously you need to go
back for some refresher
training.'
"Doug was stunned. It took
everyone in the room a few
minutes before they realized
Adm. Olsen was just kidding
him.
"Doug has been nominat-
ed for the Navy Cross. He is
recovering very well and
expects to return to limited
duty sometime this month.
'This is a great lesson on
keeping your calm under fire.
Doug fought with the heart of
a lion and is alive today
because of it."

MOTE NOTES


A little giant?
Mote senior biologist Debi
Ingrao spent Thursday, Aug.
16 examining a specimen of
large squid measuring 6.79
feet from the tip of the mantle
to'thd tip offTie longesttdritdi-
cle.
The squid was found float-
ing south of Marathon in the
Florida Keys by David Stout of
North Fort Myers while he
was fishing for tuna and mahi
on Aug. 8. Stout kept the
squid on ice until it could be
transported to Mote.
Ingrao has tentatively
identified the specimen as an
Architeuthis dux, commonly
known as a giant squid. The


identification is based on ten-
tacle clubs (the clubs at the
end of the long, thin tenta-
cles), basic body shape, arm
shape, sucker rings, fin shape
and the squid beak, which is
ah important key to iden'tifi-
cation.
There was no obvious
cause of death.
The squid, weighing'in at
2.7 pounds, was measured,
photographed and preserved
in formalin for further study.
Final, determination of
the squid's species will con-
tinue as Ingrao corresponds
with the Smithsonian's inter-
national squid experts: Clyde
Roper and Mike Vecchione


and University of South
Florida Ph.D.-candidate Hea-
ther Judkins.
The group will work
together to verify the species,
determine its sex and an
approximate age. At this.


point, the group of mollusk
experts suspects this squid
could be one of the most
complete giant squid speci-
mens of its size.
Theythinkitmayalso be the
first Architeuthis documented


from this area of the Florida
Straits. If the specimen is
indeed rare, it will likely be sent
to the Smithsonian's National
Museum of Natural History.
Visitors to Mote Aquarium
can see an already-preserved;


giant squid specimen. Molly
the Mollusk the only giant
squid currently on display in
the U.S. was 30 feet long
when it was found off New
Zealand. Molly has been on
display at Mote since 2001.

Chiropractic is a
science and healing art
that is based on the
premise that good health
depends, in part, upon a
normally functioning nervous
system. We see you as an
individual with a unique set of
needs; and we see chiropractic as a
i system of health care that is different
than medical care alone. At TWIN
PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH
CENTER, we provide safe and gentle
chiropractic care for the entire family.
Covering up the symptoms with
medication ignores the underlying
cause and delays the healing process.
Call 941.412.3800 to schedule an

feel better the natural way-the
chiropractic way. We're located at

RELATIONS

Vermont's deciduous and
conifer-laced hills draw rapt
attention during the fall sea-
son's presentation of a caco-
phony of color.
But year-round, not just
autumn, it can be said that
the Green Mountain State is a
lot about its wood.
This rings especially true
the last weekend of Sep-
tember when the Fourth
Annual Fine Furniture &
Woodworking Festival returns
to Woodstock, Vermont's
Union Arena Sept. 29 and 30.
This event will showcase the
craftsmanship of more than
40 wood artisans whose out-
put ranges from gaming
tables.to turned bowls to fur-
niture suites.
Coincidentally, the fall
foliage season is usually at
high alert this time of year.
The show runs from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and
Sunday. Admission is $7 per
person for adults (18 and
older). There will be opportu-
nities to make purchases, lis-
ten to live music, partake in a
food court and children's
crafts.
Festival partner, the
Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller
National Historical Park, will
become a virtual woodlands
theme park for the weekend
with sawmill and wooden
lbom weaving -demonstra-
tions, horse-drawn wagon
rides into the woods, and
forestry and birding hikes
through its 550 acres.
Admission to the park is free.
A complimentary shuttle will
take visitors from the arena,
where there is ample parking,
to the park.

Kathleen Wanner, a
spokesperson for theVermont

products industry represents
a significant contribution to
Vermont's economy.
"Vermont's fourth largest
export is forest products," she

an estimated 85 percent of the
state's rolling hills. Artisans use wood-burning tools to craft and decorate furniture from native woods in Vermont.


Skip the rental car this vacation, save some cash


BY TOM PARSONS
GUEST WRITER

When you plan your vaca-
tion, renting a car can really
add to the cost of your trip. If
you skip the rental, you will
save money on rental rates as
well as on hefty taxes and
fees, parking costs and high-
priced gasoline. Not renting
can make you feel good about
going green during your vaca-
tion, and you can enjoy extra
.greenbacks in your pocket.
I have seen hotel parking
rates for stays in the city as
high as $50 per day. If you are
driving in the city, you also
will probably be paying for
meters or parking garages, so
your parking costs don't stop
at the hotel. Many cities offer
good public transportation


that will save you money and
save you the headache of
navigating unfamiliar streets.
Go to www.apta.com/links/
state(underscore)local for
links to public transportation,
systems across the country.
The Environmental Pro-
tection Agency has a link on
how to get around New
England without a car at
epa.gov/regionl/topics/air/c
arfree.html. The information
covers travel by bus, rail, ferry,
bicycle and more.
You can also take advan-
tage of promotional rates for
going green. The Santa
Barbara Car-Free promotion
encourages travelers to ditch
the car when they visit. Car-
free travelers can receive 20
percent off Amtrak Pacific
Surfliner fares and enjoy deals

U.K. discount bus compa-
ny Megabus began service in
the Midwest last year and
now has buses between Los
Angeles and other California
cities or Tempe, Ariz. These
city-to-city buses are a cheap
alternative to car rental when
you find a great fare to a near-
by city and you don't want to
negate your savings. For
example, if you find a low fare
from Dallas to Chicago, but
your destination is Min-
neapolis, you could take the


bus instead of renting a car.
Call (877) 462-6342 or visit
www.megabus.com/us.
Amtrak's Web site lists a
number of promotions, such
as 50 percent off companion
fares between St. Louis and
Kansas City and two-for-one
fares on the Heartland Flyer,
which runs from Fort Worth
to Oklahoma City with stops
in between. Also check the
convention and visitors
bureau for your destination
for other possible Amtrak
promotions. Call (800) 872-
7245 or visit amtrak.com.
If you are going on a side
trip during your vacation and
you need to rent a car, I sug-
gest renting a car only for the
duration of the side trip.
While the daily rate may be
higher for the car rental, you


can save plenty on other fees.

"We're especially proud
that many of our fine furni-
ture makers have a strong
environmental sensitivity,.
creating their wonderful fur-
niture and other wood prod-

Wanner said.
For more than 200 years,
Vermonters have created fur-

ing upon the tradition of skills
passed down from generation

RECOUNTS from page 5B
achusetts, Connecticut, and
Bay Pines in Tampa; so much
care for 26 years.
I wanted to know if it was
his medical care, or his fami-
ly's love, or his innate sense of
humor and spirituality, or a
combination of all three that
made him the wonderfully
well-adjusted man he is today
... despite his major disabili-
ties and life-long medication
and treatment. So, I asked
Ron to answer my questions
in writing ... something
extremely difficult for him to
accomplish. Here is Ron's
story, in his own words, writ-
ten one short paragraph at a
time over several months,
with his right hand (he was
left-handed before he was
injured).

BY RON WALDRON
GUEST WRITER

Due to modern medical
technology, many of us, with
God's, blessing, are dealing
with TBI (traumatic brain
injury), the silent epidemic, in
a positive way. By not allow-
ing ourselves to become a
sorry case, by kicking back
and feeling unhappy for our
plight. Be proud of who we
are the few of us who've
beaten the odds by not
becoming a statistic. We owe
it to ourselves to let some-
body help us push our bodies'
toward normal rehabilitation.
I personally know it's tough to
deal with the fact that our
well-working bodies have
been handicapped.
We should keep in mind
when times get tough the
tough get going. I feel that
those of us serving [in the mil-
itary] are a different breed
when it comes to facing chal-
lenges. I know you with TBI
have already done so to get


where you are. Don't go pat-
ting yourself on the back but
rather beat your chest and let
out a battle cry as Tarzan
would do before swinging
into action. Keep your mind'
clear and active looking at the
good (bright) side and a good
life will come to you. Join a
church and attend activities
where you can meet people to
become friends with. Friends
and family have always been
very important to me espe-
cially after TBI.
We go out to dinner and a
movie very often. I try to keep
a happy cheerful attitude no
matter how bad I may seem.
For example, when I was laid
up in the VA my grandfather
would tell people if you need
to be cheered up to go visit
Ron.
As a youngster I had
always wanted to be in the
Navy. In high school days it
was time to let that thought
take root. So in my junior year
I talked with a recruiter about
delayed entry. After -gradua-
tion in 1978, they got me. I
spent my last summer after
high school at home as a civil-
ian.
Navy duty
During the month of
August I took off for basic
training with future plans of
getting into search-and-res-
cue aviation. I'm glad I was in
good shape, ready to be
worked into better shape by a
senior chief Navy SEAL, a real
tough ol' dog who ran the
search-and-rescue swim class.
Aside from swimming I spent
time flying [in helicopters]
preparing for overseas work. A
couple of friends and myself
bought motorcycles during
this training time, which
made it much more conve-
nient to get around the Navy
base and San Diego.
The main task of a CH47


helicopter, known as "Chin-
ook," is vertical replenish-
ment. Being on a supply ship
with two helicopters meant
there's plenty of work to go
around for all members of the
flight crew. Working our birds
so hard meant we were either
flying or fixing to keep the
fleet well-stocked throughout
the Western Pacifid for about
nine months or until another
ship of this kind was there to
replace us.
A short while after my
return to the states some
good friends from my first
cruise would soon be heading
out for their second cruise.
We all thought it would be
great if I could sign on and
head out with them. After
some much needed leave
time, this salty dog would be
heading out for another eight
or nine months in the west-
ern pacific. I would once
again be filling the open spot
as helicopter crew chief my
superiors were looking to fill.
The accident
Now I see the Lord had
much different plans for me. I
was slowly riding my motor-
cycle 15 miles per hour with-
out my helmet when I had a
brush with an oncoming car.
My commanding officer noti-
fied my family in Connecticut
of my mishap. Then a neuro-
surgeon called to get permis-
sion to operate in order to
save my life.
I suffered a severe brain
injury to the right side of
head. My left leg was broken
in three places and my left eye
picked up an infection in the
hospital. My neurosurgeon
said he would give medicine
for three days to clear up the
eye infection, otherwise he
would have to remove the eye
to prevent the infection from
spreading to my brain. I was
left with a scar on that eye but


the eye was saved. I'm glad I
was able to keep that eye. My
vision is good with glasses. I
carry three pair: regular and
reading and sun. My left arm
and hand were affected the
same as a stroke patient. They
don't work. I also have drop-
foot because my left leg was
in a cast for almost a year.
Therapy
I spent 2.5 months in a
deep coma between Navy
and university, hospitals in
San Diego. I received ade-
quate care, according to my
mom and dad, until I was sta-
ble enough to fly closer to
home and West Haven,
Conn., VA hospital where I
remained comatose for about
another 1.5 months.
I started moving and
reaching. When I squeezed
my father's hand on com-
mand, that was a good sign.
On Christmas Eve my mother
came into my room at the VA.
When I pulled her head closer
(again prayers being answer-
ed) I was able to speak in a
whisper, asking if I was
dreaming and wanting to
know what happened.
I recall going to church
Easter Sunday, the first time
on my feet. I remember the
priest saying, "looks like Ron
rose for Easter." I had to use a
walker. My balance wasn't too
good. My mother brought me
to the VA hospitals for out-
patient therapy I have bene-
fited from all my life.
I was able to begin bedside
speech therapy which I feel was
a tremendous help. All therapy
had to be at bedside because
my left leg was broken in three
places. I have only good things
to say about the West Haven
VA, all staff from the janitor to
the top doctor. I have found the
VA in Bay Pines (St. Peters-
burg), to be comparable.
Thank you, Dr. Kashoff.

BY ANN TATKO-PETERSON
GUEST WRITER

During the summer, John
Sadler enjoys a daily Star-
bucks Grande Iced Coffee
Mocha-espresso blended
with mocha syrup, milk and
ice. The 22-year old Pleasant
Hill, Calif., resident knows the
drink packs 320 calories, but
until recently had no idea
about the caffeine content.
"Do I really want to know?"
he asked while sipping his
drink at a downtown Walnut
Creek Starbuck's. "I love my
coffee, soda and iced tea. But
if I know how much caffeine
that adds up to in a day, there
goes my blissful ignorance."
Curiosity eventually got
the best of him. He looked
slightly pained to learn his 16-
ounce coffee contained 175
milligrams of caffeine.
"Well, that explains a lot,"
he said. "When I skip my
morning Starbucks run, I
always feel run-down. Now I
know why."
Calories, carbohydrates
and fat are consciously track-
ed nutritional facts. Caffeine?
Not so much. An alkaloid, caf-
feine acts as a stimulant and
is commonly found in coffee,
tea, soda and energy drinks.
The severity of those stimu-
lating properties, addictive-
ness and potential health
problems are widely debated.
However, most agree that
because tolerance levels vary,
everyone responds differently
to caffeine.
The problem, especially
for caffeine-sensitive people,
is setting limits when the
quantity is not transparent.
Although the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration re-
quires product labels to list
caffeine in the ingredients, it
does not mandate specifying
the amount. Since 1997, nu-
merous medical,. heal.4 and:
research offiP unsuc-
cessfully petitioned 'the FDA
to change that stance.
Some companies; includ-
ing Starbucks, PepsiCo and
Coca-Cola, have decided in
the past year to0 list the
amount voluntarily.
That still falls short of the
full transparency sought by
petitioners such as Brenda
Eskenazi, a University of Cal-
ifornia-Berkeley professor of
epidemiology in the School of
Public Health.
"I feel strongly that the
public has a right to know
what they're eating so they
can make educated deci-
sions," Eskenazi said. "There
are sensitive subgroups, like
pregnant women, elderly
people and those with heart
problems, who need to limit
their caffeine intake."
Eskenazi added that
whether caffeine has adverse


or beneficial health effects is
irrelevant in this issue.
"I want to be allowed to
make my own informed deci-
sion," she said. "When my
son was younger, I didn't
want him to have extra caf-
feine. Unfortunately, it's not
always clear. Who would have
thought Mountain Dew
would have caffeine? It's the
wrong color."
Wrong assumptions are
easy to make. /While some
soda types are generally caf-
feine free, there are excep-
tions, such as Barq's Root
Beer (22.5 mg), A&W Cream
Soda (29 mg) and Sunkist
Orange,(41 mg).
Certified nutrition consul-
tants, such as Nori Hudson in
Berkeley, advise their clients
to be diligent. .
"A product may not in-
clude what you think it does,"
she said. "Put it under a mag-
nifying glass. Read the label,
and if you can't get the infor-
mation you need on the label,
then go online."
Web sites with compre-
hensive databases listing caf-
feine amounts include En-
ergyFiend.com and Caffeine
Awareness.org.
Marina Kushner, founder
of the Caffeine Awareness
Alliance, also has published a
book on the topic called, "The
Truth about Caffeine: How
Companies That Promote It
Deceive Us and What We Can
Do About It."
Competition has driven up
the amount of caffeine
packed into energy drinks.
More than 500 such drinks
are currently on the market
and their sales pitches say it
all.,
Fixx Energy promises it will
"out perform all other energy
drinks' with 500 mg in its 20
ounce bottle. The company's
Web site even cautions 'to


college students regularly
consume energy drinks.
That concerns groups such
as the Caffeine Awareness
Alliance.
"The trend will continue
until we hear news of fre-
quent overdoses or children
being hospitalized because of
energy drinks," said Bill
Aaronson, spokesperson for
the alliance. "For now, we will
continue to lobby to regulate
caffeine and. try to convince
the public to become better
educated."
Did you know?
-The International Food
Information Council consid-
ers moderate daily caffeine
consumption to be 300 mil-
ligrams-or about three cups
of coffee.
Sodas
-Mountain Dew is one of
the most caffeine-laden soft
drinks at 55 milligrams per 12
ounces.
-Don't assume the diet
and regular caffeine levels a
soft drink are the same.
Regular Coca-Cola has 34.5
mg, while the diet version
packs 45 mg per 12 oz.
Coffees and teas
-Decaffeinated coffee is
only 97 percent free of caf-
feine.
-While the average iced
tea has 47 mg per 12 oz serv-
ing, Snapple contains 31.5 mg
per 16 oz. and Lipton Brisk
has only 9 mg per 12 oz.
Sweet treats
-Dark chocolate has con-
siderably more caffeine than
milk chocolate. A 60-gram bar
of Hershey's Special Dark has

chocolate bar has 9 mg.

absolutely stunning at all.
times. I think we came up
with a treatment that
addressed all of the above.
Oh, by the way, Tricia and
Jerry signed their-contract in
November, 2004 and did not
break ground until February,
2006. Remember, she started
planning in February, 2004.
But isn't half the fun in the
planning?
Tricia's foresight in select-
ing and paying for the
materials in advance meant
less stress and cost as it gqot
closer to the house being
completed. And choosing
her color scheme and fabrics
early in the process meant
she knew exactly what
choices to make for the
interior finishes the builder
requested.
Granite, tile, plumbing
fixtures, paint, lighting
fixtures, etc., all had to be
chosen so that Harold could
price the home out for them.
A lot of stress and anxiety
was avoided by having "the
big picture" already envi-
sioned. I can't begin to count
the number of clients I have
dealt with that have said
how difficult it was to have
to sit down and select all the
major finishes and fixtures
for an entire house in an
hour and a half. Many are
thinking of making changes
soon after they move in.
(Using the talents of an
interior decorator at this
point could be very benefi-
cial. Especially when you
and your partner don't agree
on everything.)
Tricia avoided all of that
pressure and everything
came out just perfect. She
knew she wanted two tile
murals. One is over the cook
top and one is on the foyer
wall. Their muralist, Dee
Kofod, did a fantastic job on
these two very important
pieces. Tricia and Jerry also
required that the home be
totally wheelchair accessible
because her mother is living
with them.
As you can see in the
photos the treatments are
fantastic. The living room
slider treatment and the
dining room window treat-
ments are made with the
same fabric but the colors
were flipped from red and
gold to gold and red. Privacy
was not a necessity on the
slider so I designed a swag
treatment to just frame the


view..Originrally, Tricia
thought she wanted the
treatment to go above the
transom but when it came
time to install it my
installers held it up over the
transom and it immediately
became apparent that the
treatment should go
between and transom and
the doors. Tricia and Jerry

added the grillwork in the
transom to take the "vacant"
feeling, away. It stands out
beautifully against the lanai
ceiling.
The master bedroom is
pleasant and comfortable.
They love the serene feeling
they get from the softer
colors and really plush t
treatments. The swags are


trimmed to give them
definition. The drapes are
stationary. Privacy is provid-
ed by Ado sheer wraps over
vertical vanes that block
light and provide insulation
from the setting sun pouring
in through the slider.
The house was completed
in November, 2006 and all of
the treatments were ready


and waiting to be installed.
They were really great to
work with and when I went
back for the photo shoot we
took a look back through her
three binders of swatches,
photos and specifications
that hold every detail and
every cost. of what went into
this fabulous home.
Maybe we should hold a
