Tromonto Vista Park comes into focus


City council opts for an open-air space to accommodate
a portable stage instead of a concrete pavilion.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

It's been so long since a bond
voters approved in 2003 that some
city council members had a hard
time Friday understanding exactly
what was planned for Tramonto
Vista Park at a Friday, Dec. 7 work-
shop.
Even the bond language wasn't
clear enough to answer all the
questions council members had.
Will it be it a passive park with


few amenities, or an active park
that could accommodate concerts
and playgrounds?
The answer was: a little of both.
Mayor Ed Martin characterized
it as "pretty much a passive park,"
but it includes more than just
restrooms and a parking lot.
Martin read the language citi-
zens voted on four years ago but
that didn't exactly jibe with the
oral history Council Member Rick
Tacy provided.
"We ... promised voters what


they are going to get ... and I get
the feeling we are pulling out
some of the amenities we prom-
ised," Tacy said.
"They knew
what they were
going to get. They
voted for three
large pavilions -
building one, but-
permitting three
(in case) we want-
ed them in the
future.
"The fountain Tacy
was taken out so
we wouldn't be spraying gray
water (treated wastewater) on the


park.
"(They said) go for the full
parking permit because in the
future we may not be able to go for
it. Whether it's gravel or stone or
grass, that .part didn't matter. The
number of spots waned.
"The swings for the kids were
promised.
"A performance area was not
done. (They OK'd) a very small
stage for (electrical) power for
two- or three-piece bands, and
picnic tables."
In addition, park plans called
for two restrooms, one at the
north end of the park, and one
replacing the portable at Paw Park


to the south; a volleyball court
near the beach; two small picnic
pavilions 20 feet in diameter that
can accommodate up to four pic-
nic tables each; and one large
pavilion. The park currently has
174 grass parking spates; plans
call for up to 250 spaces.
No 'monolith'
The large pavilion drew the
most discussion Friday.
The city was planning on
cementing a covered space up to
3,400 square feet.
Council cut the area down to

Commissioners are holding hearings on
adult business and nudity regulations. A
controversial Chattanooga, Tenn., attor-
ney was hired to draft new provisions.

BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

When Sarasota County legal advisors recently
decided to beef up a pair of local ordinances that
regulate adult businesses and prohibit public
= nudity, they unilaterally hired a controversial
lawyer who specializes in just such politically divi-
sive issues.
As a result, the county commission will now
face a series of hearings that attract representa-
tives from all sides of the philosophical spectrum
among them free speech advocates, religious
fundamentalists and a mixed bag of fringe extrem-
ists with agendas.
On Nov. 26, Scott D. Bergthold of Chattanooga,
Tenn., made his first appearance before commis-
sioners to tell them why they should get in line
with communities all over the country and adopt
measures that prohibit alcohol in strip clubs and
keep dancers away from patrons.
He was accompanied by University of Cal-
ifornia Prof. Richard McCleary, an expert in the
field of criminology, who accompanies Bergthold
at hearings to provide evidence he has gathered
about the "secondary negative effects" of sexually
oriented businesses.
Bergthold and McCleary recently consulted
with both Manatee County and Hillsborough
County on similar ordinances. So far they have
billed Sarasota County $6,500 for ordinance
amendment language. Their invoice for the Nov.
26 appearance hasn't arrived yet.
"The decision to hire Mr. Bergthold was made
by our office to assist us," explained Deputy
County Attorney Richard J. "Rick" Elbrecht. "We
are combining our two ordinances into one so we
can better defend a pending federal lawsuit. This is
what he does."
What Bergthold., also does is attract attention
and spark demonstrations, such as one on

Seventeen-year-old Philip
Hatsfeh accepts accolades for
saving a life after jumping off
the Venice Fishing Pier to help a
scuba diver.

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Someone out there has a story to tell
about a young man who saved her life.
"I only got her first name, Peggy," said
Philip Hansen, a burly 17-year-old who


leaped 25 feet from the end of the Venice
Fishing Pier into gulf waters to pull a
female scuba diver in her late 50s to safe-
ty.
Hansen, who was 16 at the time of the
rescue, was fishing on Sunday, Oct. 7, off
the pier with his girlfriend, Ashley Sims,
something they do often.
Along with others, they watched in
disbelief as a scuba diver swam closer
and closer toward their fishing lines.
Eventually, a group of fishermen
began yelling at the diver to move away.
Hansen sensed something wasn't
right.
"She was bobbing up and down and


kept kicking. She finally got her head out
of the water and yelled 'Help!' Hansen
said.
Before anyone else could react, Han-
sen was in the water.
James Bond
, He jumped off the pier, something he
admits doing in the past, into 12-foot-
deep water thick with greenback min-
nows, a creepy feeling, he said later.
Hansen grabbed an empty plastic
bucket that was thrown to him and
shoved it into the arms of the tired diver,

Victim comes forward
A girl, 8 years old at the
time and who .lives in
Sarasota County, learned
that Warren would be get-
ting out of the Washington
prison soon. She said that
she also was molested by
Warren when she was 4
years old.
Warren filled out a sexual
history questionnaire and
in that report admitted that
he had the Sarasota County


child perform sex acts on
him.
A week before he was
scheduled to be released
from the Washington' pris-
on, Warren was extradited
to Sarasota County to face
the new charges.
"Chris did a great job,"
Assistant State Attorney
Dawn Buff said. "Yes, I was

pleased with the result -
she was happy her daughter

Need a lift?


When Tropical Bob was
growing up in this area, Pine
Island Sound had stilt houses.
Stilt houses were built on
pilings driven into bay bot-
toms. The houses are gone
now, but their memory
inspired T.B. to a solution for
those threatened by rising
seas.
T.B. calls it the height-
adjustable stilt house, or HA
house for short.
A HA house would looklike
any other stilt house, but if
seas rise, inserts in the pilings
could elevate the house. Rich
folks could have hydraulic
lifts, like those in car service
bays.
Happy owners would be
heard saying, "Ah, HA."

JOHN MILTON was born in 1807. He practiced law in
Georgia and allegedly killed an adversary in a duel before
coming to Florida in 1846. Milton entered Florida politics
and became a statewide force in the Democratic party. As a
presidential elector in 1848, a member of the House of
Representatives in 1850 and governor in 1861, he encour-
aged the secession of Florida from the Union. When the
southern cause began to collapse in the spring of 1865,
John Milton shot himself. His last message to the legisla-
ture read, "Death would be preferable to reunion."

Council to hear appeal over short-term rentals


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Will short-term rentals
ruin Venice? It's a loaded
question, but one that city
council members will have
to struggle with as they con-
sider an appeal of a zoning
ruling made back in 2006.
On Tuesday, council will
sit as judge and jury over an
appeal by the city's own
staff and others of a deci-
sion by its own planning
commission.


The city planning com-
mission overturned an Aug-
ust 2006 administrative rul-
ing by Planning and Zoning
Director Tom Slaughter. In
it, Slaughter ruled short-
term rentals owned by Jack-
sonville' businessman Ste-
phen Milo weren't allowed
in single-family neighbor-
hoods.
Milo began buying up
homes near Venice, beach
back in 2004. Today, his

ness lists 17 rentals within

city limits, and more in the
surrounding area. They typ-
ically rent for a week, but
can be rented by the day.
Over time, neighbors
began to complain, first
about noise, then about ille-
gal parking.
Following the city's ap-
peal, two citizens and two
homeowners associations
sought to join the appeal,
siding with Slaughter.
City Attorney Bob Ander-
son rejected the argument
seeking legal standing in the


case by the associations, but
did allow residents Marilyn
Hollowell and Merle Graser,
who reside next door to or
near some of the rentals, to
join the case.
More objections
Both sides have been gear-
ing up for Tuesday's appeal,
which begins at 1:30 p.m.
It could chart the future
of home rentals in Venice
for years to come, say some
council members.
Attorneys on both sides


are still arguing over the
ground rules laid out by City
Attorney Bob Anderson.
They received final no-
tice of the rules on Monday,
according to attorney Jon
Preiksat, who represents
Hollowell.
"We still have objections
pending on the rules them-
selves," Preiksat said.
Rob Rumrell, who repre-
sents Milo, has sought to
have Anderson recuse him-
self, alleging the city attor-
ney has a conflict of interest


or at least the appearance of
one.
Rumrell is also expected
to ask council to overturn
the city attorney's ruling
allowing Hollowell and
Graser to join in the appeal.
Both sides have objected
to the city attorney's previ-
ous ruling that new testi-
mony or new issues can't be
considered.
Both sides already antici-
pate the issue will eventual-
ly end up in circuit court.

that make up the authority,
Charlotte and DeSoto, have
officially endorsed the phos-
phate compact. But the com-
missions of the other two
counties, Sarasota and Man-
atee, have raised concerns
over the deal.
So, the authority's vote
would have likely come to a


2-2 tie, said Doug Manson,
attorney for the Peace Riv-
er/Manasota Regional Wat-
er Supply Authority.
However, he also pointed
out that the Charlotte County
Commission had already ad-
dressed some of the con-
cerns to some extent, in
modifications negotiated by
the commission at its Nov. 20
meeting.
Mosaic has expressed in-
tentions to continue talking
with Sarasota and Manatee
county officials in hopes of
gaining their support for the
compact.

'Big risk'
In the pact, Mosaic offers


to take extra steps to pre-
vent adverse impacts to
water quality and mitigate
its impacts to water quanti-
ty. Among the steps, Mosaic
promises, in 15 years, to cre-
ate, water storage capacity
on its mine sites to help
supplement the Peace River
during low-flow periods.
Also, in 20 years, the com-
pany offers to provide a
reservoir site in DeSoto or
Manatee County.
In exchange, Charlotte,
Sarasota and Lee counties
and the authority would
agree to drop all litigation
and never comment again
to state or federal agencies
in opposition to Mosaic's


mining activities.
However, said Randee
LaSalle of the Greater Char-
lotte Harbor Group of the
Sierra Club, the reservoir's
benefit is not so clear. Char-
lotte Commissioner Tom
D'Aprile has said the cost of
pumping water from a res-
ervoir in the middle of
DeSoto County may prove
more costly than if the
authority built a third reser-
voir on its own land.
LaSalle expressed concern
that locating the reservoir on
a mine site could expose the
public drinking water supply
to toxins unearthed on adja-
cent mined lands.
"This would really be tak-


hesitate to expect the best.

ing a big risk," LaSalle said.
LaSalle also pointed out
that the deal calls for Mosaic
to create and conduct a mon-
itoring program. Instead, the
compact should enlist the
Peace River Scientific Peer
Review Panel, she said.

In the running
Sarasota County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub
said her county was split 3-2
over whether to sign the
pact. Sarasota County Com-
mission Chair Nora Patter-
son, considered the swing
vote, had expressed only
one concern the way a
draft version of the pact
would have prohibited the


of Venice
i IVIlNG tCOM-


ITV


local governments from
recording it in official prop-
erty records, Staub said.
Recording the document
would make sure Mosaic',
obligations under the pact
"ran with the land" in the
event the company sold its
mine sites in the future.
However, the Charlotte
commission already negoti-
ated a compromise, Staub
said, calling for Mosaic to
record a memorandum of
the agreement after each
permit is obtained.
At least some Lee, Man-
atee and Sarasota commis-
sioners have also expressed
a concern that the deal fails
to require Mosaic to support
an areawide impact study.
Manatee County Com-
missioner Jane von Hah-
mann said-that the compact
would put a muzzle on the
local governments just before
such an impact study could
get completed. So, the local
governments would be pro-
hibited from "using that
information," because that
would require "making com-
ments," she said.

The litigation referred to
by Elbrecht is being brought
by the owner of Cheetah
Lounge (formerly Club
Mary), a longtime strip club
north of the Sarasota city
limits that has enjoyed a 10-
year exemption from coun-
ty regulations passed in the
mid-1990s.
Owner Ken Tatarow, who
was present at last week's
hearing, reportedly pays
$800,000 in county taxes. He

complained that taking away
his liquor license, limiting the
size of a club stage and im-
posing a 6-foot rule between
the dancers and patrons
would destroy his business.
Bergthold advertises his
is "the nation's only law firm
focused exclusively on the
drafting and defense of mu-
nicipal adult regulations,"
and the firm's goal is to "lev-
erage its expertise on behalf
of clients through constitu-
tionally sound ordinances."
His Web site boasts a
long list of clients that span
the land from Bartow Coun-
ty, Ga., to Clark County,
Nev., to Dickinson County,
Kan., to Sioux City, Iowa. It
includes organizations such
as the American Planning
Association and National
League of Cities.
Lawyers representing the


American Civil Liberties
Union follow Bergthold
around the country to pro-
vide their perspective on his
brand of legal advice, and
have made it clear they will
have a say at all the county
commission hearings.
According to its repre-
sentatives, new rules draft-
ed for Sarasota County
could force local motel em-
ployees to register as sex
workers if there are TVs with
adult channels on the
premises, and allow county
officials to review bills so
they can see what the cus-
tomers watched.
"Our ordinances were
adopted a long time ago
and the Cheetah Lounge
has challenged them. The
case has been stayed in the
event our ordinances are
amended," Elbrecht said.

keeping her afloat.
He told her to hang on,
and he pulled her to the
closest piling.
As a child he watched his
mother at scuba-diving
practice, so he knew to tell
her to drop her weights, but
she didn't respond.
A fellow fisherman threw
a rope into the water.
Hansen attached it to the
bucket.
Savvy fishermen by the
name of Mike, Cody, Dustin
and four or five other regu-
lars threw down another
rope, Hansen recalled, this
time with a noose at the end
of it.,
They've pulled up sharks,
one weighing more than
400 pounds, onto the same
pier.
Hansen put his foot into
it and grabbed up high
while the group hoisted him
back up onto the pier.
"I felt like I was James
Bond," Hansen said.
Seeing it through
Soaking wet, Hansen
then resumed the rescue by
_ slowly towing the diver
along the length of the 720-
foot pier back to the shore-
line.,
When it was shallow
enough, Hansen ran
around the pier entrance,
waded into the surf and
dragged the exhausted
diver to shore.
The diver said "I'm OK.
I'm going to sit here and
calm down."
"Where was your part-
ner?" Hansen asked, re-
membering another diver.


rule never dive alone.
Again, no answer.
Hansen surmised an air
hose from the oxygen tank
to where it connected to her
vest wasn't working.
"She got tired of trying to
swim," he said.
A beachgoer who wit-
nessed the rescue tracked
down some of the diver's
friends in the Sharky's On
The Pier Restaurant parking
lot and told them about the
ordeal.
"Oh, she would have
been fine. Just tell her we're
at the truck. She knows
where we are," said one of
the divers.
"That made me a little bit
mad," Hansen said. "I
mean, their, friend almost
drowned and they don't
even care."
The diver sat there for an
hour recuperating before
leaving the scene, witnesses
said.
Word gets around
The diver and Hansen
refused treatment.
The Venice Fire Depart-
ment was never called to
the pier, said Captain Joe
Silva.
"I don't know exactly
what happened, if it was too
much weight or she devel-
oped cramps or what," Silva
said.
He cobbled together
what happened from wit-
nesses and informed Fire
Chief John Reed about the
incident.
They decided young
Hansen, who left school at
the age of 16, deserved


recognition for his actions.
On Nov. 13 the Venice
Fire Department presented
Hansen with the Helping
Hands Award for going
above and beyond to help
someone in trouble. The
ceremony took place in city
hall, with ,Chief Reed and
then-Mayor Fred Hammett
presiding.
"A lot of times we arrive
at the scene and find people
have been doing CPR and
jumping into the water, and
we pack up and say 'thank
you, goodbye,' and we're on
our way. People like Philip
go above and beyond ... we
didn't have to get into the
water ... or they actually
save a life.
"They are just as much
deserving of the credit as we
are, so why not honor them
as well?" Silva said.

"I mean, their friend
almost drowned and
they don't even care."

Philip Hansen

When asked if he felt like
a hero, Hansen simply said,
"Yeah."
The youth's quick think-
ing, courage and diving
knowledge weren't lost on
firefighters.
They told Hansen he
should consider a fire de-
partment career when he
turns 18 and to look them
up.
Proud
Hansen's girlfriend and


his mother, Angel Neketis,
were there to share in the
accolades including the
standing ovation he re-
ceived at a crowded city
hall.
"I'm not surprised he did
it. This kid has a heart of
gold. He would give you the
shirt off his back," said Ne-
ketis.
"I'm not sure if I was
there I would have let him
do it, but he probably would
have done it anyway," she
said jokingly.
"He knows they pull
sharks out of there. I've seen
them pull up barracuda.
That's the thing ... he didn't
even care. He jumped any-
way."
She was glad to hear fire-
fighters tell Hansen he
should think about a career
in fire and rescue.
"He would be perfect
with that. He loves to help
people. I don't care who it
is."
Like all single mothers,
Neketis had her share of dif-
ficulty raising an indepen-
dent-minded young man.
By the age of 13, Philip
had already grown to 6 feet
tall and the schools labeled
him as a bully, she said.
"Every time he turned
around he was getting in
trouble."
But that hasn't been the
case since he left school and
went to work.
"This is probably the best
thing that could happen for
him," Neketis said.

OUR VIEW



County wise to hold redistricting for census


You have to hand it to the Sarasota
County commissioners. At least
they made an honest effort to do
the right thing with commission redis-
tricting.
When they ran into a buzz saw of out-
raged (outraged!) opposition, they
scratched their heads and dropped the
plan. Still, you have to hand it to them.
We will, anyhow. Months ago we sug-
gested it was time to correct disparities in
county commission districts caused by
shifts in the county's population. And we
applauded the commission's initial effort.
Now, the problem of mis-weighted dis-'
tricts will remain, probably for the next
five years. At that point it will have been
18 years since the last change.
The problem arose with the growth of
South County in the past decade. North
Port's population swelled from 22,797 in
2000 to an estimated 47,770 in 2006.
Venice went from 17,864 to 21,584. North


County areas grew at a lesser pace.
If you look at registered voters, the
same unevenness is clear. The South
Venice-North. Port-Englewood district
had 66,921 voters, and the Venice-area
district 60,697; the other three northern
districts are in the low-40,000 range.
Clearly, it's unequal representation, and
commissions are empowered to make
adjustments in odd-numbered years.
Still, there were obstacles to change at
this point.
First, districting is based on popula-
tion, not registered voters, so the supervi-
sor of election's voting figures are of no
real use. Then, the 2006 population fig-
ures are state'estimates, not broken down
on a block-by-block basis.
Census figures are used when drawing
district lines accurately, and those only
come out every 10 years. The next census
will be in 2010 and the figures may not be
available until 2012.


Sarasota commissioners decided to
.take a shot at revisions this year, despite
the problems. County staff drew up op-
tions and commissioners chose one in
late October that, among other things,
extended, Commissioner Jon Thaxton's
district into North Port. The plan was far
from perfect, but it would have made the
district more balanced.
Then came the reaction.
The city of North Port sent a letter
objecting.. It was argued that having two
commissioners represent North Port
diluted the city's potential clout. South
County residents came to a hearing carry-
ing placards denouncing the move. They
accused commissioners of gerrymander-
ing, partisanship and skullduggery.
Oh, brother.
Thaxton called the reaction "comical."
He favored dropping it, "even though it
might be the right thing to do." As
Commission Chair Nora Patterson noted


at the end, "The disparity in numbers,
especially in South County, is only going
to get worse."
You might argue the commissioners
lacked the resolve to do the right thing,
but it's hard'to blame them, considering
the huff.
Looking five years down the road, it's
worthwhile to begin considering the
question of North Port's representation.
North Port needs a strong'voice in
Sarasota County, so why not two?
Three current commissioners live in
the. city of Sarasota,-which can't hurt the
city. But they also clearly understand they
represent the interests of the entire coun-
ty, since all are elected countywide.
When North Port eventually has a
county commissioner who lives within
that city's borders and it could happen
next year it will have to be a candidate
who sheds a provincial coat, one who
attracts voters south to north.


What's next?


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


Venice has an asset that
is unique: the Venetian Wat-
erway Park.
Think about all the great
places you have been and
try to think of one that has a
park that stretches for 6
miles right in the middle of
town.
The one that usually
comes to mind is San An-
tonio's River Walk, which
certainly is fabulous. I re-
member walking from my
hotel to eat dinner at a rest-
aurant on the waterway and
then walking down it
among the brightly lit tress
and all the shops. Some
even take a romantic boat
ride on the river. The very
old oaks and the winding
river make that a charming
attraction right in the mid-
dle of town.
But while it is very nice, it
is much shorter and lacks
the potential for the wide
range of activities we have
with ours. Theirs is mature
and ours is just coming into
its own.
The east side some day
will connect to Sarasota.
That is a long way off be-
cause the rebuilding of the
bridge over Dona Bay is
stuck in financial and other
problems.
Now that we have fin-
ished the pouring of con-
crete; what is next and how
do we get the park to the
maturity level that a San
Antonio has? We need to
keep pressing to make it
spectacular.
Luckily, it is in incredible
hands with Venice Area
Beautification Inc., a citi-
zens group that is about as
active as any in town.
Currently Don Hay is the
president, following a long
list of distinguished leaders
and early Venice Area Cham-
ber of Commerce support.
Don is continuing to
guide VABI's forward-think-
ing mission. Many don't
realize VABI is involved in
other beautification pro-
jects, like Patriots Park and
the new West Blalock Park
Arboretum. VABI likely will
help get U.S. 41 landscaped
once- it is finished, as land-
scaping U.S. 41 near State
Road 681 was its very first
project more than a decade
ago.
Many projects have been
considered to enhance the
park. One is to line the trail


with trees and low-mainte-
nance native vegetation.
While this sounds like it
might be an easy project,
with everybody buying a
tree in memory of a friend,
or with nonprofit clubs
pitching in, it is not quite
that simple. Since this is on
West Coast Inland Navi-
gation District property, we
have to ensure that trees
don't inhibit the work of the
waterway for dredging, for
example. However, this
should be doable and cer-
tainly is on VABI's short list
of new projects.
One idea from a reader
would be to add fitness sta-
tions on one or both sides'of
the trail. This fits well with
the exercise aspects of the
trail. It could be funded by
the community and foun-
dations, and maybe be in-
stalled by service clubs or
the troop of volunteers that
already work on the trail.
There's the possibility of
making the train depot into
more of a destination. It
doubles as a station for
county buses and a histori-
cal and educational land-
mark. The historical society
runs tours out of there a few
times a week.
There has been talk -
but no follow-up of leas-
ing part of the depot for
anything from a bicycle
rental and bait shop to a
sandwich and refreshments
shop. There certainly seem
to be some opportunities
that might mesh well with
the mission of the trail.
Venice MainStreet, for in-
stance, has a nice night un-
der the stars there, usually
in October.
More ambitious ideas
include putting shops along
the trail, more closely emu-
lating the San Antonio
experience. This would be
on the east side behind the
industrial park.
Actually, this would be
part of a bigger plan as, this
area is one of the villages set
out in the new proposed
comprehensive plan: move
the industrial park and
build a small community.
Another idea is to add
artwork to the experience.
There are already many
murals along the walkway
from the Gondolier Sun to
the wall of the high school
ballfield. More could be
added, especially some
free-standing sculptures.
Spacing those throughout
would make it a fitness and
culture adventure.
If you want to help, call
Debbie Luce at 207-8224,
visitVABI.org or just drop by
the office along the water-
way next to the Hatchett
Creek Bridge on the island.

I am trying to decide which of two procedure
able regarding traffic light enforcement.
On the one hand, an empty patrol car could

On the other hand, we can tie up several of
car to trap offenders in undercover operations.
in a number of summonses and fines which enr
fers.
However, it does nothing to improve the so-c
of the operation, public safety. Officers are tied
lators are stopped after the fact and they have a
formed a dangerous action that often results
damage, injury and death.
It's a tough choice. What do you think?

Your dog can't pick it up


Dog dirt. Shame on the people of Venice who own dogs
and take them for walks on the Venetian Waterway Park. I
and many others participated in a 5K road race sponsored
by the YMCA on Nov. 17 using part of the trail for the race. I
was shocked that people who walked their dog on the trail
do not have the decency to pick up after their dog. The
waterway was littered with dog dirt. People who walk or
ride bikes have to be very careful to avoid stepping in the
dirt. Shame on you unless, of course, you let your dog do
the same thing at your own home.

Misprint. There is a huge misprint in Mary Kay


Ruppel's Nov. 16 column.

According to the
Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety,
approximately two
million whiplash claims are
filed annually. Neck injuries
are the most commonly reported
crash-related injury. In particular,
whiplash injuries result from the
rapid snapping back of a person's
head during a collision. These
injuries, which can occur at crash
speeds as low as ten miles per hour;
hyperextend the neck and damage
nerves and ligaments, often resulting
in pain and lack of -mobility. The
best way to prevent a whiplash
injury is to position your vehicle's
head restraint so that the top of
your ear horizontally aligns with
a point in the middle of the head
restraint, no more than three
inches away from the back of
your head.

County seeks volunteers for
winter seagrass survey
Sarasota County is seeking volunteers for its winter
seagrass survey,-which runs now through February
2008. Seagrass is vital to maintaining healthy
aquatic ecosystems, improving water quality,
stabilizing shorelines and providing food and cover
for a variety of wildlife. It is directly responsible for
brining in millions of dollars annually from out-of-
state and resident recreational and commercial
fishermen.
All program volunteers must attend one of two
training classes, which consist of a brief program
overview and hand-on training in the water. Both
training classes will be held from 1-3 p.m.
Applicants can attend either class, Saturday, Dec.
15, Ken Thompson Parkway pavilion, 1700 Ken
Thompson Parkway, Lido Key or, Saturday, Jan.
12, Cedar Point Environmental Park, 2300 Placida
Road, Englewood.
Boaters attending the training should bring
swimwear and water shoes. Participants should
have their own global positioning systems and
watercraft; but those who don't will be paired with
those who do. For more information or to volunteer,
contact the Sarasota County Call Center at
941-861-5000 and ask for Amanda Dominguez.

Fourth quarter surge lifts



Tarpons over Indians


BY TRIPP MILLER
VENICE SPORTS EDITOR

It took a little while, but
Dago Pena and Chris
Stephenson both had big
fourth quarters to give the
Charlotte High School boys
basketball team the 57-53
edge over Venice.
Venice (4-1, 1-1) led by
two to start the fourth quar-
ter, but Pena, who scored
only two points in the entire
first half, came alive with
nine points. Stephenson
came through with a big
three ball, followed by a
three-point play to tie the
game at 46 with about two
minutes to play.
"That's what they're sup-
posed to do," Charlotte
Head Coach Tom Massolio
said of his two stars. "That's
why they're those types of
players."
Stephenson finished the
game with 20 points and
three rebounds, followed by
Pena with 16 points and
nine rebounds. In a hostile
environment at the Teepee
in Venice, the Tarpons (5-0,
4-0) escaped with outstand-
ing play from outstanding
players. D.J. Goshay fin-
ished with nine points, fol-
lowed by Mike Maresca with
six. Ted Oboute and Zack
Ruple rounded out the
Tarpon's scoring with two a
piece.
"Both teams just battled,"
Massolio said. "That's the
type of environment you
want to play in every night."
Venice trailed 13-12 at the
end of the first quarter, but

Venice High School Head Basketball Coach Steve Cavallaro gives his team a pep talk during the
waning seconds of Friday night's 57-53 loss to Charlotte High School. The Tarpons remained unde-
feated, and it was the Indians' first loss of the season.


was not intimidated by
Charlotte. The Indians came
out in the second and shot
sevenof 10 from the field to
take a 31-28 halftime lead.
Venice had more offen-
sive production than they're
used to. Burton, Justin
Grant, Tyler Christian and
Brandon Wilkinson all fin-
ished the game in double
figures. Kyle Jutras also fin-
ished with eight points to
round out the scoring for
the Indians.
Venice maintained the
lead through the third quar-
ter and led by as much as six
in the final period. That's
when Stephenson had six
unanswered points to tie it
up at 46. Follow that kind of


momentum shift with a
charge called on Venice for-
ward Trey Burton with less
than two minutes to play,
andVenice couldn't recover.
In those last two min-
utes, the pace of the game
shifted' in favor of the
Tarpons.
"We really got the game
going up and down better
than we did in the first half,"
Massolio said. "We're more
of that type of team, getting
the ball up and down."
With three sophomores
and a junior starting the
game for Venice, they could-
n't keep up.
"We just made a lot of
young, young mistakes
coming down the end,"


Venice Head Coach Steve
Cavallaro said. "When you
come down to crunch time
in anything in life, you go
back to old habits. Right
now, unfortunately with a
lot of young kids, not all of
our habits are good ones. I
think as soon as we practice
some more and practice
with a little bit more intensi-
ty that some of those bad
habits will change into good
habits."
Next up for Venice is a
road game at Lakewood
Ranch High School Dec. 12
at 7:30 p.m. The Tarpons
travel to Key West High
School Saturday for a 7:30
p.m. tip-off.

On mats one and two at
Saturday's Captain Archer
wrestling tournament at
Charlotte High School, Venice
High School's Wade Consul
(125) and Casey Hayes (119)
wrestled simultaneously for a
shot at the championship
finals.
Consul finished first,
defeating last year's fourth-
place finisher in the 112-
pound weight class by way of
a 20-5 technical fall. Hayes fin-
ished second, as he nearly
upset last year's second-place
finisher in the 119-pound
weight class.
Hayes led 7-2 going into
the third period, but the lead
soon slipped away. Cody
Opsahl of Charlotte took him
down three consecutive times
to close the lead to 9-6. After
the last takedown, Opsahl
pinned Hayes with less than
20 seconds remaining.
At press time, Consul was
slated to face a three-time-
defending state champion,
Scotti Sentes, for the Captain
Archer championship. With
the semi-final loss, Hayes slid
back into the match for third
place against an opponent to
be named later.
Consul, Hayes and Billy
Field (152) were all guaran-
teed to reach the podium by
tournament's end.
How they did
Field reached the champi-
onship semifinals by defeat-
ing Charlotte's Ben Paull. A
fortunate draw in the second
round handed Field another
victory'by way of a forfeit. At
press time, Field was slated to
face Nick Sanches of Riverdale


High School in the semi-
finals.
In the consolation rounds,
Venice's Colton Schuchert
(103) advanced to the match
for fifth place by defeating
Cory Mack of Barron Collier
High School, falling to Brayton
Logan of North Fort Myers
High School, then beating
Frank Bianco of Palmetto
High School and Nick
Pitingolo of Gulf Coast High
School
Venice's Andew Lopez
(130) fell out of the champi-
onship bracket in the first
round at the hands of Tyler
Grams of North Port High
School, only to rally back with
a first-round consolation bye
and a second-round consola-
tion win over Marshall Green
of Bayshore High School.
Like Lopez, Edgar Montero
(135) of Venice lost to Daniel
Barlay of Bayshore. Montero
advanced through the first
round of the consolations
with a bye, then defeated
Derek Hagan of Fort Myers
High School
Another Indian eliminated
from championship con-
tention early was Alex Hanson
(145). Hanson fell to the top-
ranked 145-pounder in Class
1A. He recovered, though, and
was still alive in the consola-
tions at press time.
In the 189-pound weight
class, Venice's LouisWhite was
also still contending. In 215,
Ted Stahura was slated to face
Dana Luebbe of Gulf Coast
High School in the consola-
tion semi-finals.
Next up for Venice is a dual
matchwith Braden River High
School Wednesday at 6:30
p.m. atVenice High.

Pump up that








Silver division wraps up, Builders Specialties on top


BY DON ROYEA
SPECIAL TO THE SUN
RW. Burden has done it
again.
As sure as the sun rises in
the east, you can bet your
house that Burden will
bring Builders Specialties in
a winner for at least one
of the three seasons in
the Venice Senior Softball
League.


Last season he shared
honors with Palmer Ranch
Travel and the issue this
season was not resolved
until the final game, with
Builders Specialties defeat-
ing Palmer Ranch Travel in a
tight, 16-15 game.
Venice Senior Softball is
expanding to 10 teams for
its winter season and finds
itself in need of a sponsor.
Any business interested in


becoming a sponsor can
call Commissioner Mike
Gerack at 716-1642 or
Assistant Commissioner
RW. Burden at 926-0308.
Current sponsors come
from Venice, Sarasota and
Port Charlotte.
The league would prefer
the new sponsor to be a
local business so the name
will be one its followers can
relate to.

KITTEN PAIRS UP "FUR" ADOPTION 12B


MS brought





out the





artist in her


Among the major necklaces created in beadwork by artist Lori Workman are goddess designs.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


T ori Workman's glass is
half full. Her parents
LJuilt their dream
house in Osprey in 1987.
Fourteen months after mov-
ing in, her father was flown
to Atlanta for open-heart
surgery.
"Before the operation he
asked me to come down
and help run the family
business," Workman said.
Workman's father never
recovered. She found herself
living in Florida and helping
her mother run the family
business. When her mother
died, Workman found her-
self running four Hallmark
card stores in Sarasota.
In the interim, she found
the love of her life, her hus-
band Mike, who is a printer
and also works with Hos-
pice, delivering medical
equipment to Hospice pa-
tients.
Just when the glass seem-
ed to be filling up, another
tragedy struck the young
woman. Just 39, she was
diagnosed with multiple
sclerosis. It was 2001.
"I had to close the stores,"
she said. "But I was able to
be with my mother for her
last 10 years."
Someone with a half-
empty glass might have
given in to the disease a
debilitating neurological
disorder affecting the
nerves of the brain and
spinal cord. Instead, she de-
veloped her artistic talents.
The artist within
Workman learned bead-
ing, specifically, the peyote
stitch, which Native Amer-
icans used to embellish
clothing and other objects.
The technique is an intri-
cate process in which pat-
terns are created in a man-
ner similar to mosaic tile
work, in which designs are
made from tiny squares of
color.
The peyote technique
requires one to not only
string beads in specific pat-
terns but then to stitch
through each bead in such a,
way as to attach it to its sur-
rounding neighbor beads.
Her teacher was her
friend, Pat (Tricia) Watts.
"I had a friend who was a
Halloween freak," Workman
said. "I saw a Frankenstein
and wanted to make it for
her (in beads). For six hours
I tried it and tore it apart and
finally I got two rows
worked. The rest is history."
Today, she makes elegant
necklaces and bracelets,


Workman does not let her battle w

using some of the finest
beads available. Working
sometimes from charts and
sometimes from an idea in
her head, she creates small
works of art that are re-
versible and feel almost like
a silky fabric.
Most of her designs end

one of the tiny pieces," she For the holidays she other themes. Sometimes,


the shape of the subject dic-
tates the shape of the fin-
ished work. A peacock neck-
lace is one example. An-
other necklace features a
small envelope of beads
decorated with tiny flowers.
The larger works are rough-
ly 2 to 3 inches wide and as
much as 5 or 6 inches long,
including the fringed bot-
toms.
Since acquiring a com-
puter charting program, she
now has the ability to recre-
ate nearly anything, includ-
'ing custom portraits of one's
dog.
Bracelets too
Like most fine artists,
Workman does not rest on
her laurels. Using various
sizes of beads, she began
crafting beaded bracelets
that gain dimension as she
works a few rows in tiny
beads, switches to larger
ones and then switches
again, creating a rounded
effertr-which is-repeated
again and again until a
bracelet-length piece of
beaded fabric is completed.
Intrigued with these first
bracelets, she learned the
spiral stitch and used that to
create twisted beaded rope
bracelets in a variety of col-
ors and patterns.
Prices for Workman's
work range from about $25
to $400 and up for major
custom work.
When not stitching her
beaded creations or dealing
with a continuing list of
complications from MS,
Workman offers classes of
individuals and small
groups.
Complications
In the past year,
Workman has had a heart
.attack and developed other
complications from her ill-
ness and its treatment. She
was diagnosed with dia-
betes and more recently
with liver problems. The
liver problem is a result of a
treatment meant to retard
the progression of the dis-
ease, she said.
Through it all, Workman's
glass remains half full and
she grows as an artist, one
bead at a time.
Workman, who recently
moved to Port Charlotte,
may be contacted at (941)
875-9355 or at Lori.work
man2@comcast.net.

The


News from Ecineville


FINE WHINES


Deadline column No. 10


BY TED RANK
STAFF ESCRITOR
Hang on to your sanity,
ladies and gentlemen. It's
time for News from Ecine-
ville.
Ecineville City Council,
including its two new
members and a new may-
or, joined with sympathet-
ic council members who
weren't up for elec-
tion to pass what
some would call
progressive and
others would call
regressive mea-
sures at the coun-
cil meeting and
other workshops
this week.
Reaction was
swift from those in
favor of and those
opposing the ac-
tions.
"You might as
well just put up a
'closed for busi-
ness' sign at Ecine-
ville city limits,"
said D.C. Nomo,
owner of Rockets-R-Us.
"The concept that local
governments will develop
and implement programs
to aid people who are not
business owners but
merely hard-working peo-
ple trying to simply live
their lives and have a little
enjoyment seems to upset
the business community,"
said community activist
T.E. Richards.
Perhaps the, most con-
troversial issue was coun-
cil's approval of a Right-to-


Life Living Wage amend-
. ment.
The amendment, ap-
proved by council 5-2,
would force any business
doing work for the city of
Ecineville totaling more
than $1,000 per calendar
year to have a minimum
hourly pay for any- em-
ployee of $12 an hour.
Police are confirming


that new council member
Langst Hillretrek, who
proposed the Right-to-
Life Living Wage amend-
ment, was indeed hit by a
tomato while exiting city
hall after the meeting.
They are denying, howev-
er, that they are holding
D.C. Nomo in connection
with the incident.
Other actions by the
council this week:
Approval of a plan to
build a 168,000-square-
foot chocolate factory on


the site of the old Ecine-
ville Elementary School.
"This is an attempt to
diversify our economy. It's
all about real estate, tour-
ism and fruits. A chocolate
factory employing 250
people will be a tremen-
dous asset to this commu-
nity," said resident Briar
Pitchland.
Approval of making
the first Thesday of
the month Dogs
Run Free Day.
Leash laws will be
suspended 6 a.m.-
8 p.m. to allow
dogs to run
through the streets
into businesses
and anywhere the.
dogs want to go.
Denial of a
request by a local
investment group
to build a gam-
bling casino on the
site of the old hot
dog stand on the
south levee.
Well, this is Ted
"I'm a reporter, I'm
a reporter" Rank report-
ing. I'll see you next issue
with more news from
Ecineville. Until then, re-
member, as Confucius'
great-to-the-eighth-
power-grandson Frank
said recently on a visit to
our fair city, "May you live
in interesting times here
in Ecineville."

Regular readers of this
column (this means you,
Marilyn) tell me they have
come to depend on it to
keep lTemainp tq date on
breaking national and in-
ternational news.
They really should get a
life.
Still, far be it from me to
disappoint the fans:
Pigeon racers petition
to become sport. (First
competitive knitting, then
you guys. Be patient.)
Diamond reveals iden-
tity of "Caroline." (It's young
Caroline Kennedy. I thought
he was just lame; turns out
he's creepy, too.)
Rare ancient wooden
throne found in Herculan-
eum. (It doesn't flush any-
more, of course, but it still


has the original seat on it. A
copy of "Uncle Julius' Bath-
room Reader" was found
nearby, too.)
Depp goes punk for
"Sweeney Todd." (Goes?)
Tiger mauls man at
Tippi Hedren preserve.
(Sounds like a case of 'roid
rage. Wait ... it was a real
tiger? Never mind.)
Sex Pistols ready to tour
again. (Whatever made
them think we wanted
them to?)
Four finalists named for
Heisman Trophy. (No joke
here -just wanted to point
out that Florida quarter-
back Tim Tebow is the
favorite to win. Go Gators!)
"Ghost" star Hewitt
fights back over weight. (A
size 2, she's having to de-
fend herself against rude
remarks insinuating she's
fat. But even if she lost


weight, her critics would
still be stupid.)
Researchers use new
stem cell method to treat
mice. (Just what we need -
healthier mice.)
Iraqi Parliament closes
shop for month. (Western
democracy is taking root -
we got a Muslim nation's
governing body to take
Christmas off.)
Panel floats NYC air
congestion remedies. (So
far the "breathing on alter-
nate days" plan is the
favorite.)
Senate passes tax fix.
(Riiiiggghhtttt.)
CIA says it made and
destroyed interrogation
tapes. (Don't worry, they'll
be out on K-Tel in a few
weeks.)

Would you rather

,be deaf or blind?


BY RICHARD R. NAMIKAS,
AU.D.
GUEST COLUMNIST

Before you answer that
question you may want to
hear what someone who was
. both deaf and blind had to
say. "Hearing is the deepest,
most humanizing philo-
sophical sense man possess-
es." "The problems of deaf-
ness are deeper and more
complex, if not more impor-
tant, than those of blindness.
Deafness is a much worse
misfortune. For it means the
loss of the most vital stimulus
-r-the sound of the voice that
brings language, sets thou-
ghts astir and keeps us in the
intellectual company of
man."
These were the words of
Helen Keler (1880-1968). She
lost her hearing and vision to
rubella as a very young child.
In 1925 she spoke to the
assembled members of the
Lions Clubs and asked them
to become her knights of the
blind in the crusade against
blindness. Since then lions
Clubs around the world have
fought against preventable
blindness as well as hearing
loss. With more than 1.5 mil-
lion members in 200 coun-
tries, they have had a pro-
found impact in helping the
less fortunate with not only
vision and hearing problems,
but a host of other humani-
tarian assistance programs.
The Lions of District 35-I
in southwest Florida have
taken up the challenge to
help those in need of hearing
assistance who are not able to
help themselves. With the
help of local hearing health-


care providers and the
Starkey/Audibel Hear Now
program, they are providing
new hearing aids to those
who are truly needy. It is a
program that deserves to be
used and supported so the
world may hear.
Two strangers sit together
in a room waiting for an
appointment. They are both
deaf. Neither one knows sign
language. They look at each
other. They smile. They never
really connect. Two similar
strangers are both blind. One
asks the other why they are at
the office. They talk about
why they are here. They talk
about where they are from
and about their grandchil-
dren. They laugh and cry
about what they learn about
each other.i They truly con-
nect as human beings.
If you value the objects
around you losing your sight
may be the worst thing that
could happen to you. If you
truly value people, then los-
ing your hearing could be a
much greater tragedy.
If you are one of those
people who know the suffer-
ing that comes with hearing
loss and are financially needy,
the Lions of District 35-I can
help. Contactyour local Lions
today to find out how.
Dr. Namikas is hearing
chair of Lions of District 35-
I. He can be reached at 1653
South U.S. 41 Bypass, 496-,
9277. Other participating
providers include the Gulf

What is MS?


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
is a neurological disorder
affecting the nerves of the
brain and spinal cord.
Most often striking youn-
ger adults, the disease can be
difficult to diagnose. Symp-
toms range from vision chan-
ges, simple fatigue and bowel
and bladder problems to
severe depression, forget-
fulness and even paralysis,
'although that can be tem-
porary in the earliest stages.
Most victims experience
exacerbation of symptoms
alternating with remission
for long periods of time.
An exact cause has yet to
be discovered although a
popular theory suggests a
slow-acting virus such as
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) or
measles, which could re-


centre.net


main dormant (inactive) for
many years before con-
tributing to the develop-
ment of MS in genetically
susceptible people. Genes
seem to play a role and so
does a deficiency of vitamin
D, a person's fat ingestion
and whether or not one
smokes. The disease is con-
sidered not contagious and
most victims have a normal
life expectancy although the
quality of that life may be
impaired to various degrees
by the illness.
There are differing de-
grees of success, including
delayed disease progres-
sion, reported for patients
using one or more of six
FDA-approved drugs for
long-term treatment.
Considered an autoim-
mune disease, MS causes
the body's immune system
to attack normal body tis-


sue, specifically the cells
that make myelin.
Who gets MS?
Patients are generally
diagnosed between the ages
of 15 and 50. The disease is
rare in younger children.
Women are twice as likely to
develop the disease and
Caucasians are at greater
risk than those of African
heritage.
It is estimated that
350,00-400,000 people in
the United States are cur-
rently dealing with the dis-
ease. Throughout the world,
the number is estimated at
more than 2.5 million peo-
ple.
While not thought to be
inherited, some people
might be genetically predis-
posed to developing MS.
Studies show only a 3 to 4
percent risk of a child of an

MS patient developing the
disease.
Whatever the underlying-
cause, experts feel that the
factor most likely to cause
the disease must be en-
countered before the age of
16 in order for the disease to
be triggered at some point
in the future.
The progression of the
disease is highly variable
and some people will have a
more progressive course
than others. Some even be-
come wheelchair-bound
soon after the onset, while
others may never reach that
stage.

Why learn Spanish if you live in Venice?



There are 46 million Spanish-speaking people in the United States. That is one

Spanish-speaking person for every six English-speaking people in our country.

deal with us in a myriad of
ways. The numbers of these
people will increase in the
coming years.
Another reason is that
nearly every product for sale
in our country today has
instructions or product in-
formation in Spanish. Foods
popular with Spanish-speak-
ing people are appearing in
the ethnic food aisles of area
super markets. The ability to
read the labels and instruc-,
tions can be beneficial.
I am confident that man-
ufacturers don't print in
Spanish just to use more
ink. They do it because they
know the market is growing


Someone asked me why
we should study the Span-
ish language.
"Why not?" I responded.
After all, there are 46 mil-
lion Spanish-speaking peo-
ple in the United States.
That is one Spanish-speak-
ing person for every six Eng-
lish-speaking people in our
country. While that does not
mean that they all speak
their native tongue, at least
not all of the time, it is
becoming more and more
frequent that many of these
people are speaking Span-
ish at least some of the time.
Our government tells us
that approximately half of
the above-mentioned 46
million are in the United
NNI States illegally. It is fairly
obvious that those here ille-
gally either won't, or can't,
be deported to their country
of origin. What is to become
of them as they try to blend
into the many ethnic groups
found in these United States,
including communities here
in Venice?
Why are they here in the
first place?
Most probably came to
this country in search of a
i better way of life for them-
selves and their families.
Who could blame them for
that? Those of us who mov-
ed to theVenice area came for
i the quality of life to be found
here. Those who speak Span-
ish as their first language are.
rp od d i iffe t% i ite rn iinin rfr znr t,-
As the old adage goes, "If
you can't beat them, join
them."
The United States is
made up of people who
have come from countries
around the world.
SSpanish is spreading
Spanish is increasingly
spoken in many of those
countries and also is be-
coming more prevalent in
our daily lives. Locally, there
are a great many people
working in service indus-
tries who speak Spanish as
their native language. The
ability to speak their lan-
guage can facilitate our
dealings with these new-
comers.
Rather than complaining
on a daily basis, which
seems to be what we are
doing, we could learn to live
with those who make up
our increasingly diverse
communities.
Personally, I had several
reasons to learn the lan-
guage, but the most impor-
tant reason is that I want to
be able to communicate
more ably with those who
work in our community -
the people who mow our
lawns, construct our homes,
serve us in restaurants and


of Spanish, French, Ger-
man, Portuguese or Italian
is $2,500 per week. Alter-
natively, you could study
one-on-one with a teacher,
taking two 2.25-hour ses-
sions per week for four
weeks for a cost of $1,090.
While the instructions
may be Hispanic, and may
talk about the culture, the
ambiance of being in a truly
Spanish-speaking country
is not there. Adding to the
expense would be the cost
of the daily commute to
Orlando or the cost of stay-
ing there in a hotel, plus the
cost of meals.
Total immersion
The language school I
found to be superior to any I
have attended is Centro
Linquistico Internacional, in
Antigua, Guatemala. There
are other schools in that city
as well as throughout the
country and in many other
Latin countries, but none
that I felt would be equal in
the quality of its teachers,
the beauty of the surround-
ings and the safety of its
location and facilities.
Nothing can compare to
the opportunities to learn
Spanish that I had there in
just three weeks.
Founded by professional
instructors who realized the
need to provide quality edu-
cation at a reasonable cost,
the school offers more than
6,000 square feet of space,
containing classrooms and
living space, the latter in
eith apartnmeris' of-' idi-
vidu&lrooms;,eachwith'pri,,
vate bathrooms.
For those who wish to do
their own cooking, there is a
well-equipped kitchen. Al-
ternatively, prepared meals
are available at minimal cost.
Also provided is a com-
puter room with free In-
ternet service and Wi-Fi ac-
cess 24 hours a day. Multiple
computer terminals are
provided, allowing students
to stay in touch with family
and friends by e-mail with-
out ever having to leave the
campus. There is no charge
for their use.
One of the reasons stu-
dents learn so quickly at
Centro Linquistico Intern-
acional is that there are no
text books. At this school,
only Spanish is spoken and
you start learning the very
first day. Students are urged
to partake of the many cul-
tural events in the area, in-
cluding visiting and study-
ing the many ruins of cathe-
drals of earlier days.

of Antigua, you will be greet-
ed by people of a world very
different from your own. Their
people in the area of the
school are poor, financially,
but rich with culture. They
are proud of what they have
and happy so many stu-
dents want to learn about
their world.
Staying at the school in
Guatemala is still far less
money than attending Ber-

if you add the cost of airfard

Learning opportunities
If you want to learn the
Spanish language; 'how'
would yougo aboutit?" .-.-
Where do you go fort
lessons?
In big cities, one can go to
language schools like Berlitz,
where for a lot of money you
can study most anylanguage.
Big cities like New York have
ethnic neighborhoods, in-
cluding areas where the lan-
guage of choice is Spanish.
College courses are an
option, although the result
may be less useful than
what one could learn in a
total immersion manner.
I have studied Spanish in
three countries as well as at
a local community college.
In my opinion, the best way
to learn Spanish or any
other language is to go to a
place where it is spoken. By
being totally immersed and
surrounded by those who
live the language and the
culture, on a daily basis, you
will learn more quickly.
Berlitz offers a total im-
mersion program in Or-
lando with daily classes
from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The

DAVE BARRY
HUMOR COLUMNIST


As a professional news-
paper columnist with both
medical AND dental bene-
fits, I receive many letters
from people who'd like to
get into my line of work.
"Dear Dave," they write.
"I'm sick of my boring,
dead-end job as a (lawyer,
teacher, office worker, pol-
itician). How do I develop
the skills I need to obtain a
job like yours, where you
have an opportunity to
make a difference, even
though you never actually
do?" OK, (then: Today I'm
going to take you "behind
the scenes" here at Dave
Barry Inc., and reveal, step-
by-step, exactly how I write
a column:
Step One is to come up
with a topic. I am always
thinking about possible top-
ics, from the moment my
alarm goes off at 6 a.m.,
through the moment I actu-
ally get out of the bed, at
around 10:15. During that
period, I take a' series of
decompression naps while
monitoring the morning TV
news shows to find outwhat
the news is. Unfortunately,
the morning news shows no
longer show the news.
They're too busy showing
the crowd of people who
and around Qutside-fthe'TV'
studio for hours on end
waving at the camera and
holding signs that say: "HI!"
Evidently, these people
are to6 stupid to operate
telephones, and this is the
only way they have to com-
municate with their families
or ward attendants back
home. Sometimes the TV
personalities go outside; I

always hope that they'll
point firearms at the sign-
holders and yell, "GO
HOME," but instead they
ask the sign-holders where
they're from. The fascinat-
ing answers never fail to
amaze and delight every-
body ("Ohio?? Great!!").
So I have no column
topic when I emerge from
the bedroom to fix myself a
hearty breakfast of coffee
with extra coffee. My next
step is to look through the


daily newspaper, which I
have found to be an invalu-
able and amazingly rich
source of advertisements
for women's underwear.
Every other page has an ad
featuring female models in
lingerie; you get the impres-
sion, from newspapers, that

FROM SARASOTA.
ORCHID SOCIETY
Heather Hill has been
awarded a $2,000 scholar-
ship from the Sarasota Or-
chid Society Inc. Each year
the Sarasota Orchid Society
awards a scholarship to one
student planning to major
in the study of horticulture,
floriculture or botany. She is
pursuing a career in envi-
ronmental science and con-
servation at Florida Gulf
Coast University.


Hill recently completed
an internship with Marie
Selby Botanical Gardens.
While serving as an intern
with the gardens she was
involved in the symbiotic
orchid propagation of the
endangered Oncidium en-
satum, also referred to as
the Florida dancing lady in
the Everglades National
Park. Oncidium ensatum is
unusual in that it grows as a
terrestrial plant in the leaf
humus. This orchid has a
branched flower spike five-


feet or more tall covered
with bright yellow flowers.
The data gathered from this
project represents some of
the most cutting-edge or-
chid conservation biology
research currently going on
in the state of Florida.
Wesley Higgins, Ph.D,
Head of Systematics at Sel-
by Gardens, said, "Heather's
research is an outstanding

BARRY from Page 9B


concept of underwear? Do
they smack their foreheads
and go, "THAT'S what I
need! Something under my
outer clothing!"?
But you can't write a pro-
fessional column about
women's underwear. You
need a topic with some
"meat" to it, such as the U.S.
trade deficit, which is an
important issue that the
newspaper often puts next
to the brassiere ads. And so,
with this topic in mind, I
head for my home office,
which is an area that I would
estimate, for tax purposes,
covers 94 percent of the
total square footage of my
home.
I work at home because,
as a professional writer, I
find that a solitary environ-
ment enables me, whenever
the muse strikes, to clip my
toenails. This particular
muse strikes more often
than a French labor union.
I'll be pondering the trade
deficit, and I'll glance at my
toenails and think, "Hey!
Those babies have grown at
LEAST three thousandths of
an inch since I last clipped
them!" So I grab the clip-
pers, which I always keep
handy, and soon I'm hard at
work. All your top writers do
this. If you don't believe me,
go up to, say, Norman
Mailer, and have some
friends hold him down
while you remove his shoes
and socks. If his toenails
aren't trimmed to the base,
I'll pay you $10. I'll need
color photographs.
Another reason creative
individuals prefer to work at
home, as opposed to an
office, is that when you need
to scratch yourself, you
don't have to sneak behind
the copying machine and
settle for a hasty grope. At
home, you can rear back
and assault the affected
region with both hands, or,
if you want, gardening
implements.
But you cannot scratch
yourself forever. You are not
a professional baseball play-
er; you are a newspaper
columnist, and sooner or
later you have to "knuckle
down" and get to work on
the task at hand, which is:
lunch.
After lunch, it's time to
get back to thinking about
the trade deficit. The key,
with a complex issue like


this, is: research. A profes-
sional newspaper column
has to be 800 words long,
which is why I cannot say it
enough: research, research,
research. Among the ques-
tions that need to be
answered are: What, exactly,
IS the "trade deficit"? For
this kind of technical detail,
I get on the telephone to my
Research Assistant, Judi
Smith, who is a wealth of


information.
"Judi," I say, "How come
there are so many newspa-
per ads for women's under-
wear?"
"I think because men like
to look at women in bras-
sieres," she replies.
My wife, who also works
at home and is listening to
this discussion, notes: 'All
those ads look the same."
Both my wife and Judi


agree that nobody ever buys
a bra from an ad. It frankly
makes me wonder if this
could be a contributing fac-
tor to the trade deficit.
Somebody should think
about this. I'd do it, but
these toenails are not get-
ting any shorter.
Dave Barry is continuing
a leave of absence from
writing his weekly humor
column.

Why can't we get along? It's all about the animals


A perfect


buddy


RICK KINGSTON
GUEST COLUMNIST
Hi, my name is Rick
Kingston. My wife and I are
the cofounders of Puffy
Paws Kitty Haven. PPKH is a
2,800-square-foot, nonprof-


it, no-kill haven for unwant-
ed kitties for life. We are lo-
cated in Englewood and
serve the tri-county area.
My wife and I have been
rescuing and helping un-
wanted cats that have phys-
ical, emotional and behav-
ioral problems since 1997.
Our mission is to con-
tribute to a better life for un-
wanted and homeless kit-
ties, to protect them from
neglect and cruelty and to
provide a safe haven for the
them in a no-kill environ-
ment until a secure perma-
nent, loving and responsi-
ble home can be found.
Since our inception as a
nonprofit in 2006, we have
met many wonderful peo-


ple whose sole mission in
life is to help the unwanted
kitties in the community.
But, believe it or not, we
have met other folks in our
fundraising endeavors from
other animal welfare orga-
nizations who do not want
anything to do with Puffy
Paws Kitty Haven.
Now, people who do not
like cats or other animals I
can deal with, because I
know they are missing a
sensitivity chip.
But folks who outright
say they support other ani-
mal welfare organizations
in the area, then turn a deaf
ear to what I'm saying,
either on the phone or in
person, I just cannot under-


stand. I always thought if
you love animals you would
want to find out about the
newest kitty rescue group
and haven in the area. Be-
cause it's all about saving
the kitties, right?
*First, let me say I think it's
great that a lot of folks sup-
port many of the fine ani-
mal welfare groups in the
area. And it is OK that folks
do not want to give a dona-
tion to Puffy Paws Kitty Ha-
ven. But it's not OK to blow
us off and turn a deaf ear -
and I will tell you why.
It's simple mathematics.
Thousands of cats and kit-
tens are still being eutha-

Proud heritage equals scholarships


CINDY GNEGY
COLUMNIST

Tartan BaIl
The St. Andrew Society
held its 29th annual schol-'
arship fundraiser, the Tar-
tan Ball, at the Oaks Coun-
try Club recently Manywith
Scotch ancestry or those


interested in Scottish her-
itage wore tartans to the
event. Tartans, originally a
style of cloth intended to be
decorative, became sym-
bols of regions or clans.
David and Barbara Mac-
Millan, hosts of the ball,
wore the family hunting tar-
tan.
"I'm not Scotch, but I
drink good scotch," said
John Gelidi as he and his
wife Mary waited for the
ceremonies to begin.
The ceremonies began
with Sergeant-at-Arms Joe
Ambrose leading bag pip-
ers, Gary Reinstrom and
Larry Jacobs of the Jaco-


bites Pipes and Drum Band,
and the officers and direc-
tors of the St. Andrew Society
around the banquet room.
"Grateful are we for our
heritage," said Dr. Don Kerr
during the opening prayer.
Kerr, 92, has been the Chap-
lain of the St. Andrew Society
since 1980.
"It was just a small organi-
zation when I came and
mostly Sarasota County sher-
iffs were members," Kerr
said. He also officiated the
christening of the tartans
later in the evening.
Toasts were given for
England, Canada and the
United States.


"Charge your glasses and
be upstanding," proclaimed
Charles Craig as he began
the toast to the Queen of
England. Howard Hanson
was given the honor of
toasting the presidency and
the President of the United
States.

Remembering
Jack Apple
. Casey Key Fish House
and Marina opened the tiki
bar for an evening to honor
a long-time patron, Jack


Apple. Jimmy Von Hubertz,
owner of Casey Key Fish
House, with bartenders
'Skeeter' and BrianMouldey,
invited family and friends of
Apple to light a candle, drink
champagne\ and launch a
small float with flowers and
apples in Apple's honor. This
was the fourth memorial ser-
vice the owner has held at the
Tiki Bar.
"Everyone is family," said
Von Hubertz.
"The man could get
along with everyone," Dav-
id Arnold said of his friend
of 40 years. "Jack bought his
first cabin cruiser in 1954
and had owned a boat ever


since."
Apple had been ill for a
couple of years but could not
part with his boat.
"This is a man, husband,
father and Capt. Jack of the
Apple Jack,' that greeted you
with a smile and always wel-
comed each and every one of
us aboard," Skeeter said at
the beginning of the service.
After many kind words of
remembrances for Apple,
everyone raised their glass of
champagne, which was
Apple's favorite drink, and
launched the memorial float
which drifted past a boat
docked at the pier appropri-
ately named Full Circle.
