What's up with that, dock?

Casey Key resident John
Konecnik's five-year saga of
developing Fisherman's
Wharf in Venice continues.
A hearing is scheduled
for Feb. 13, 2008 before cou-
nty commissioners who sit
as the Water Navigation
Control Authority.
Konecnik will seek an
after-the-fact approval for a
floating dock he built too
long and too wide.

side, and generally 45 feet
on the Intracoastal Water-
way side. The mooring pil-
ings are for vessels using the
dock slips.
"Some of those pilings
are not consistent with the
plans (submitted)," said
Howard Berna, Sarasota
County resource protection
environmental supervisor.
To mitigate the code vio-
lations, Konecnik clipped
off a 16 foot length of dock,
bringing it down to 433 feet.
But removing another 16-
foot section and the moor-


dock segments that Kone-
cnik wanted to build out
closer to Harbor Lights was
denied by the WNCA. They
still sit in the empty space
on shore where Konecnik at
* one time planned on build-
ing a high rise hotel.
The county is responsi-
ble for permitting the dock,
while the city of Venice
would handle permitting
for development on land in
front of the dock.
In 2004, Konecnik finally
received approval for a 415
foot floating dock, but didn't
build it in a timely fashion,
even after receiving four
extensions, according to
county officials. He came
back in May 2006 for reap-
proval of the project, which

N6komis Volunteer Fire

Department plans to rebuild


BY BROOKY BROWN
THE SUN EDITOR

The Nokomis Volunteer
Fire Department Inc. will
hold a public workshop to
discuss its request to rezone
a 1.5-plus acre parcel from
residential single family-3 to
governmental .use.... The,
workshop will be held on
Monday, Dec. 17, at 6 p.m.
at the station, 205 Pavonia
Road, Nokomis.'
According to a fire de-
partment memo, the meet-
ing is to inform neighboring
residents of the nature of
the rezone and to seek com-


ments from them.
Bob Markuson, chair-
man of the Fire Comm-
ission, said the rezoning re-
quest is being made be-
cause the current fire, sta-
tion needs to be rebuilt.
"It's in dire need of re-
building," Markuson said.
; "It was built in the early '60s,
and' it doesn't meet any of
the hurricane ratings."
The plan is to tear down
the current station and
build a two story building
that meets hurricane stan-
dards.
Markuson said the re-
zoning came about because


of a violation by the depart-
ment.
"We purchased our train-
ing tower, which meets Flor-
ida statute requirements,
from a company called Ware-
house on Wheels," he said.
'After we installed it, county
code enforcement said it was
a building."
NMarkuson said the
department offered to move
the tower.
"But the county suggest-
ed we rezone instead be-
cause they understand the
situation." ,

This fence at the Nokomis Volunteer Fire Department was moved in 9 feet so volunteer firefighters
responding to emergencies would have room to park their personal vehicles without obstructing
the road.

about. a year ago and was
finished in February. When
Sarasota County Resource
Protection officers mea-
sured the dock in May they
found it was 449 feet in,
length 34 feet longer than
the 415 feet permitted.,
City officials said a deci-
sion to engineer bigger,
stronger brackets that tie
the dock sections together,
making it more hurricane-
proof, added several inches
to each segment, resulting
in the additional length.
They also found five
mooring pilings (not at-
tached to the dock) were
two-to-five feet off the mark
on the side of Harbor Lights
Mobile Home Park. The
dock fingers jut out 30 to 35
feet on the Harbor Lights


ing pilings is a more expen-
sive proposition now that
the original contractor has
left the scene.
In order to correct the sit-
uation, code enforcement
and the owner agreed the
owner would be required to
seek approval of his slightly
longer dock after the fact.
"No new construction is
being proposed. He is seek-
ing approval for what is
there today," Bema said.
Konecnik first sought a
permit to build a 686-foot
dock in 2002, but that was
denied after Harbor Lights
residents complained of the
marine congestion it would
cause.
By then JKonecnik had
already purchased the 686
length of dock. The left over


was granted.-
There are still no firm
plans on what might ulti-
mately be built on the prop-
erty in front of the floating
dock.
In years past, the owner
referred to a 10 story hotel,
*or possibly a boat storage
facility. Konecnik has also
expressed an interest in
some type of mixed use de-
velopment with condo-
miniums.
County commissioners
are scheduled to hear Kon-
ecnik's case on the morning
of Feb. 13.
Efforts to reach Konecnik
for comment were unsyc-
cessful.

Businesswoman helps struggling artists by planning an artists haven


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

In the '60s Mose Henry
was the lead singer for The
Highwaymen, a group fam-
ous for such songs as "Mic-
hael, Row the Boat Ashore,"
and the million-seller "Cott-
on Fields."
The group performed
with Woody Allen, Bill Cos-
by and Frankie Valli. Life
was going well for Henry
until 1978, when he was hit
by a car and dragged for 60
feet.
Over time his physical
ailments healed, but his

memory was gone. The
accident left him with hys-
terical post-traumatic am-
nesia that persisted for 10
years.
'At first all I knew was my
name and my phone num-
ber," Henry said.
At the time, there wasn't a
lot of treatment for this con-
dition and he resisted the
cure doctors suggested.
"During the '70s shock
therapy was the only way to
help memory loss, and I
didn't want to go through
that," he said.
Henry has spent the last
30 years recapturing both

his memory and his life.
With the help of his wife,
Lisa Lloyd, an artist, and his
friends, he pieced together
his life.
He recorded the infor-
mation they gave him, in his
own voice, then played it
back over and over again.
The process somehow jolt-
ed his subconscious into
remembering all he had
lost.
"It's funny how the mind
works I did it with my
own words," he said.
He now thinks he can
help others. Through daily
memory exercises, he said,

he could help other people
who have experienced
memory loss.
Unfortunately in 2003 he
was involved in another
life-changing accident, one
that almost took his voice.
"While working with a
farm community, I was
accidentally sprayed with
an excessive amount of
ethyl chloride," he said.
Henry now speaks in a
whisper and can no longer
work as a singer. Lloyd is his
main caregiver. It's difficult
for her to work because she
doesn't leave his side. The

LUITLE KNOWN FAMOUS FLORDIANS
BY JOE "FASTHORSE" HARRILL


















Steve "Lefty" Carlton was born and grew up in Miami. He
played Little League and American Legion ball, and pitched
for Miami-Dade Community College. Carlton signed with the
St. Louis Cardinals in 1963 and during the next 25 years he
played for the Cardinals, Phillies, White Sox, Giants, Indians
and Twins. He was the first pitcher to win four Cy Young
Awards in a career. In 1968 he began experimenting with the
slider, which became his signature pitch. Lefty retired in
1988 and the following year the Phillies declared him the
greatest pitcher in the team's history. He was elected to the
Hall of Fame in 1994.

Peppers pulled on Rattlesnake Island


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
Due to the severe dry
conditions that have raised
, the threat of wildfires, Sara-
sota County Fire officials
have recommended a re-
duction of invasive Bra-
zilian pepper on Rattle-
snake Island.
Sarasota County Parks
and Recreation, which runs


the popular day-trip boat-
ing and picnic spot, has
awarded a contract.for the
plants removal to RA
Markuson Inc.
The $24,000 project is
being funded by the West
Coast Inland Navigation
District and Sarasota Coun-
ty Environmental Services.
The project will improve
recreational access to the


jointly owned island park,
improve emergency re-
sponder access onto and
around the island and
improve overall public safe-
ty.
The increased growth of
Brazilian pepper has ham-
pered control of several
wildfires on the island over
the last few months. Ac-
cording to Sarasota County


fire officials, without the
invasive plant species, par-
ticularly in its dry state, the
fires would have been much
easier to fight.
The project, which
begins Dec. 15, is expected
to take three months.
For more information,
call 861-5000 and ask about
Rattlesnake Island, or visit
www.scgov.net.

Don ,t let a Grinch steal your Christmas


Don't let a Grinch steal your Christmas


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER


People overwhelmed
with holiday activities may
niot have safety concerns
high on their list of things to
worry about. The sad fact is,
crowds in the malls can dis-
tract gift seekers and the
season can be ruined when
shoppers become a victim
of theft this time of year.
The Venice Police De-
partment wants residents to
be aware of the increased
number of thefts that occur
this month and take steps to
avoid becoming a statistic.
"Because of the holiday,
residents leave packages in
their car in plain sight," said
Officer Daniel Whittaker,
Venice Police Department.
Whittaker recommends
keeping a blanket in your
vehicle to put it over bags as
you shop from store to
store.
"You should put them in
the trunk, but if that's not
possible, then hide them,"
he said.
Be aware of your. sur-
roundings. There is an
upsurge in purse-snatching
from shopping carts during
the holidays. Look away for,
only a few seconds and .your
purse is gone, he said.
Recommendations-
Whittaker has.,adiice to
prevent home thefts, too.


Break down boxes that
contained items like big-
screen televisions. Burglars
drive by and notice what is
in your garbage, then return
to steal it.
Put deadbolt locks on all
doors; window locks are re-
commended as well. Dur-
ing the winter many resi-
dents keep their windows
open to take advantage of
the cool Florida breezes and
forget to close the them
when they leave.
"It doesn't take much to
pop a screen apart," Whit-
taker said.
Leave the television on
when you are not at home.
Even if the lights are out,
burglars think someone is
home.
Homeowners should pay
attention to who is walking in
their neighborhood. Most
burglars walk into the
planned burglary area -
they don't drive in, Whittaker
said. Burglars know where
homeowners hide valuables:
freezers, closets, shoe boxes,
purses in closets and draw-
ers.
"Residents should start
paying attention to people
who doi't look like them in
. their neighborhood, espe-
cially in gated communi-
ties," he said.
Whittaker did not recom-
mend stopping or question-
ing someone, but he said
residents should call the

It only takes a second for a thief to steal your purse, ruin your
holiday and perhaps your credit. '


police department.
"Don't be embarrassed;
we will check them out for
you," he said.


Criminals try to look like
they belong there, posing as
landscapers or conducting
door-to-door solicitations


during the holiday season.
"I am not saying that they
are not legitimate, but once
people are let into a house
they may return to burglar-
ize the home," he said.
Mail should be stopped
or picked up when the resi-
dent is away for an extend-
ed period of time. Lawns
should be cut and regular
maintenance should be
done.
Identity theft
Home computers should
be shut down unless you are
actively using them. He rec-
ommends using only secure
Web sites when ordering on
line.
Credit cards should have
signatures laminated on
them and, if possible, a
photo. Be careful at restau-
rants when the waiter takes
your card to prepare the bill.
Anytime your card is out of
sight, you put yourself in
jeopardy of identity theft.
Never give out any per-
sonal information to phone
solicitors.

Be aware
Utility workers are per-
mitted to work on equip-
ment 24 hours per day in
any area. If you hear a noise
at night, turn on your lights
and call the police. They will
check to be sure it is a utility

SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A


l IkinMAv nr. 1 9n007


ARTIST from Page 1A
crafters were invited to
bring in their work to show
and sell to the public. She
now plans to expand the
gallery and develop an
entire artists community
where creative individuals
who need to work can get
together and share their
ideas and talent.
"My plans are to have
artists working together to
support a community of
music and crafts," Alfano
said.
Alfano has given a home
to Henry and Lloyd and she
intends to provide housing
to many artists. The homes
are small, about 400-500
square feet, and will be con-
structed on land she owns
in Nokomis, Laurel and
Sarasota.
Her goal is to allow the
artists to support themselves
by selling their work at
Almost Angels Art League,


780 North Tamiami Trail,
Nokomis, and at shows and
craft fairs.
New hope
When the colony is com-
plete, she plans to have work-
shops and drama nights in a
coffee-house atmosphere.
Everything from writing.
poetry, playing guitars and
knitting quilts to making
candles or spinning pottery
on a wheel will be included.
Each artist will be char-
ged only $1 per item per
month and an additional
dollar when their artwork
sells. Everything in the shop
must be original.
Alfano has been involved
with affordable housing and
eco-sustainable micro-
communities for several
years. Part of the funding is
from her nonprofit corpora-
tion Whentogo Commun-
ities. There are several levels
of support available depend-
ing on need.


Alfano, the owner of
Wandalan Homes, Noko-
mis, has already completed
the Crescent Dawn com-
munity on Siesta Key. 'One
Heart on Bayshore Road in
Nokomis is currently being
developed as a musician
and artist community. Fut-
ure development will be on
land across from her manu-
factured-home park in
Nokomis.
Lloyd plans to sell pos-
ters of her artwork and
Henry-inspired CDs at Al-
most Angels Art League.
With a roof over their heads,
the couple can devote their
energy full time to what
they know best being cre-
ative.
Alfano said her purpose
is not to give people a hand-
out.
"I am just giving them
new hope," she said. "'A little
self respect."

FIRE Irom Paqe IA


The paper received a letter
from a resident who com-
plained about the workshop
being scheduled the week
before Christmas when he -
and he assumes others -will
be out of town. He wanted his
concerns known.
Kenneth Salek has a
number of concerns such as
inadequate parking, train-
ing hazards and a large
propane tank used in train-
ing exercises. The smoke
and noise from some of the
fires are issues for Salek, too.
In general, he thinks the
department has outgrown
its present site.
In Salek's letter he com-
plained about dars and
trucks parked along a fence
line on Pavonia Road,
Markuson said that
problem was addressed by
moving the fence in 9 feet so
people parking at the fire
station wouldn't be out in
the road.
"Parking will again be ad-
dressed with the new build-


ing," he said. In fact, one of
Salek's parking complaints
concerned the haunted ho-
use that firefighters hold
each year. While Salek said
he thinks the event is a good
thing, he has difficulty
keeping people attending it
from parking in his yard.
"When the new station is
built, we will have to look
for a new location for the
haunted house," Markuson
said.
Another of Salek's con-
cerns are the training fires.
Though he knows training
is necessary, he said the pr-
opane fires make a lot of
noise and he can feel the
heat from them at his
house. He also worries that
the cars burned for training
and then left to smolder
give off toxic fumes from the
"foam, vinyl and carpet"
burning in them.
"The cars were com-
pletely stripped out first, so
there were no toxic prod-
ucts burning in them," said
NVFD Chief Howard
Bearse. "Wood was used to


start those fires."
Bearse did say, however,
the department will be a bet-
ter neighbor by putting no-
.tices in the newspapers ad-
vising area residents when
the department will be doing
training involving fires, so
residents can close their win-
dows.
As for the propane tank
being a hazard, Bearse said
the tank is surrounded by
posts to prevent vehicles
from hitting it and there are
other safety precautions in
place. ,
"It has an emergency
shut-off valve, and a state
certified instructor is always
present at those trainings"
he said.
Markuson thinks relocat-
ing the department would
be difficult.
"Show me where we can
move it in Nokomis," he
said. "Then the question is
whether we can afford it
and would the people of

OUR VIEW


Sarasota County takes strong look at tree protection


Maybe Joyce Kilmer's to blame.
To all the grade-schoolers forced
to memorize the lines, "I think
that I should never see, a poem lovely as a
tree," trees immediately and forever be-
came associated with the stuff of wispy,
romantic poetry. Strum the lute; gaze at
the long limbs of the majestic oak; cue the
doves.
To be sure, trees can be beautiful and
inspirational. But the romanticism often
obscures their utilitarian value.
It's hard to think of trees as "infrastruc-
ture." So unpoetic and pedestrian. But
they have true, concrete value to any
community.
Sarasota County is updating its Tree
Protection Action Plan with three objec-
tives in mind:


Maximize opportunities to replenish
the tree canopy.
Maintain the existing canopy.
Respect trees when making infra-
structure decisions.
Decidedly bureaucratic and unpoetic.
But important, nevertheless. The county
is aiming to tighten current tree protec-
tion ordinances and improve the urban
ecosystem.
Since 1999, the county has budgeted
more than millionn in capital improve-
ment program money for tree planting in
county rights of way in neighborhoods.
and along roads. The extension of the 1-
cent sales surtax maintains the tree pro-
gram for the next 15 years.
The county's programs provide impor-
tant natural infrastructure in many ways.


As Commissioner Joe Barbetta put it
during a recent commission workshop,
"Even though we may be moving more
money toward the increasing and en-
hancing of canopy, I think we have to look
at the returns. The economic value of a
better way of life, a better- community.
The stormwater retention value is phe-
nomenal. There are so many additional
benefits, and that's why we have to look at
the trees as part of our infrastructure."
Or, as county Manager of Urban For-
estry Demetra McBride said recently,
trees are good for air and water quality, for
watershed management and energy con-
servation.
Urban tree canopy also sustains man-
made infrastructure. Large shade trees
along the roads can preserve asphalt,


delaying necessary repaving. Urban plan-
ning is now all about sustainability, and
the urban forest helps sustain the life of
"built infrastructure," McBride said.
McBride is helping to launch the Sara-
sota County Tree Trust, which will be
headed by Jack Whelan, the former chair
of the SarasotaTree Advisory Council. The
group will work on public and private tree
initiatives in the county.
McBride sees the county's tree canopy
effort as a "win-win" for the public.
"There's a natural connection between
growth and natural resources," she said.
"They can actually work together."
Kilmer may have been correct that
"only God can make a tree," but humans
have the ability to preserve those cre-
ations and make a better community.


Tax Watch


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

Most of us think that gov-
ernment is a highly ineffi-
cient operation with incredi-
ble duplication and bureau-
cratic red tape. There is rea-
son for us to think like that
When we see things that just
don't make sense and seem
wasteful or just not neces-
sary. There certainly are
many of those instances. Ask
a businessman trying to get
repairs to his building or
expand his business and you
will find a lot of inefficiency
and with it a huge amount of
frustration.
Oftentimes the business-
man gives up.
But what gets missed is
that many governments are
also progressive and innova-
tive. I would put the city and
county in that category,
although not in every case.
Report
Florida Tax Watch put out
a report called "Food for
Thought" that actually sur-
prised me because of its pos-
itive approach to govern-
ment. For one, I always
thought tax watch groups
only gripe and never really
offer constructive sugges-
tions. While this report did
offer criticism, it was a won-
derful compilation of best
practices around the country,
and included many very
sound money saving prac-
tices within the state and at
some county governments.
The goal of the book was
to try, to get government to
work towards innovating the
way they do business. They
showed some examples, like
the city of Phoenix that has
many of the characteristics of
an innovative city. A few of
the things they feel makes an
innovative government is
being able to have a shared
vision and not constantly
shifting priorities. They want
to see a system of idea man-
agement include having
innovation as part of the
review process.
They recommend having
reward systems, which is a
difficult cultural change.
Sampling
A sampling of Tax Watch's
recommendations:
Develop call centers to
centralize the consumer
response functions to pro-
vide faster response and
decreased costs. Call centers
centralize functions often
done in multiple depart-
ments that do not share data
well. They allow for accurate
data mining of information
and response times that will
assist in making improve-


ments including cutting
costs. They cite many depart-
ments that have done this
with great cost savings and
improved response and show
how others need to do it. The
taxpayer complaint system
was one of those needing
change.
Fraud tracking programs
are critical. There is billions of
dollars of fraud annually in
the state. There are many
programs to detect it and
prosecute. Some of those
have had amazing results.
For instance, theyhave found
$1.5 billion just in the food
stamp program and millions
in the food voucher pro-
grams. Of coarse, fraud is
rampant in Medicaid, yet Tax
Watch recognized the state
was the first to implement a
prescription drug over-uti-
lization system. However
there are many more areas
for improvement.
They recommend Activity
Based Costing as an exten-
sion to the normal depart-
mental costing. This assists in
the Total Quality Manage-
ment way of being able to
pinpoint areas that are out of
line and being able to make
changes. It allows a depart-
ment to track exactly where
the costs occur.
They recommend having
incentives for productivity
achievements. For instance,
" the department of correc-
tions installed content filters
for internet use to keep peo-
ple on job tasks. That alone
basically eliminated web
born virus infections and
saved an estimated added
value of $39 million.
Federal funding maxi-
mization has the opportunity
for huge revenue. A study by
the Urban Institute showed
Florida was shortchanged
billions of dollars and ranked
47th in the country. To help
change that the chair of the
Fiscal Policy and Calendar
Committee, our very own
Lisa Carlton, required all
appropriations committees
to ask one question before
allocating dollars, "Does this
investment result in matched
dollars from the federal gov-
ernment, local government
or private funds?"
Many counties have de-
veloped plans to get parts of
the Medicaid, foster care and
child support dollars but it is
inconsistent. *
It is clear from reading Tax
Watch's white paper that
there is a wealth of opportu-
nity for each government
entity to learn from others.
How to get all of the good
practices in the hands of the
departments and legislators
who can effect change is the
-big challenge. Certainly Tax
Watch has taken a good step.

It would be nice if local tax
groups would be as construc-
tive and share good ideas for
improvement.

Bumper sticker: The
secret of staying young is to
live honestly... and slowly,
and lie about your age.

Still not sold on roundabout


Horrible. I've got a comment on the roundabout on East
Venice and Jacaranda. I can't imagine wasting money on a
county test to see if it works here. Our traffic is too busy and
too heavy and the trucks it would be horrible. And also,
please put cameras at major intersections. There's too
many red-light runners inVenice. Let's give them some tick-
ets. Maybe that will stop them. And please crack down on
people talking on their cell phones. It's crazy. They can't
possibly concentrate and watch traffic while they're chat-
ting on the phone. And my last comment is, I think it's a
great idea to have trolleys taking people from parking to
downtown or to the beach or Sharky's or whatever. I think
that would be a tremendous way to get people to shop
downtown.


Call it Christmas. I want.
Santa Claus to bring back
our Christmas Parade. I
know Christmas is a holiday,
but the majority of us are
Christians and we are cele-
brating Christmas. Having
said that, I think that we
should welcome other
groups, but I don't think we
should change the name of
our parade to patronize
minorities. '
Jeopardy. I see once
again where the Venice boat
parade put in jeopardy the
health and safety of the peo-
ple who live on Casey Key ---
the problem being that the
boat parade always blocks
off the drawbridge at Albee
Road, which requires emer-
gency vehicles to drive up
41 and come down the othef
northern part of Casey Key? I
don't understand why the
parade can't turnaround
south of the bndge and pro-
ceed dovn the Intracoastal as
opposed'tq having to put up
the bridge and turn north of
the bridge. This is an annual
occurrence, and I see it as a
real safety concern.
Why Wal-Mart? Why
does a quaint little town like
Venice need threeWal-Marts?
Why can't we have a nice
store like Kohl's, Macy's or
even Dillards? Is it because
Wal-Mart provides the plans,
labor and materials? No trou-
ble for the developer. Tell me,
does this developer buy his
clothes at Wal-Mart? Just
wondering.
Last minute. I read on
the front page in the
Gondolier Sun on Nov. 30
that council members were
handed a copy of the new
plans, meaning Miller
plans, only minutes before
the meeting started. I find
that extremely unprofes-
sional. When I was on a
board, we always required a
proposal to be shown to us
at least a week before the
board meeting and every
board member had to sign
off on 9e proposal to indi-
cate thatflheor she had read
the propo.si.I am amazed
that a city like Venice and
we're talking abotjtmillions
of dollars for this hotelI- it
only takes a few minutes to
give an approval on a new'
plan. It's unbelievable.
Getting a copy of a plan only
minutes before the meeting
started, to my thinking and
in my experience, is an
expression of contempt.
City council and you,
Gondolier Sun, should react
to that and ask that things
be conducted professional-
ly
In defense. I find myself
in the unique position of
defending PGT. The police
didn't fire people. The police
were there to protect the
current employees from
anybody who got disgrun-
tled by being fired. Who
fired them were the execu-
tives at the company. The
police didn't have anything
to do with who got fired. The
police were there in a pre-
cautionary role. Please don't
charge PGT with stupid
crimes like firing people by
using the police. The police
were there to help.
Salty talk. Water, water
everywhere but not a drop
to drink. Ifwe don't start talk-
ing about a desalination plan
soon, we will be singing this
tune. There was talk in
Florida some years ago about
building these here, but
building condos was a more
lucrative endeavor. Does Gov.
Crist have any thoughts
about this threatening prob-


lem?
Flashback. Thank you,
Venice Little Theatre, for
bringing Herman's Hermits
with Peter Noone to Venice.
Peter put on a fun show. He
was personable to the audi-
ence. I felt like I was 15
again. He signed my Her-
man's Hermits record al-
bum and I had my picture
taken with him. Afterwards,
I watched the Hermits toss
the football in the parking
lot. It was a lot of fun. Thank
you again, Venice Little
Theatre.
Competition. I am so
pleasedthat we're going to
lhave-'sonie competition for
Comcast in this Venice area.
Apparently Verizon is doing
,la' lot of putting in cable
wires. The problem I have is,
it seems to be most of those
workers that are working for


the subcontractor for Ver-
izon don't seem to be
Americans. I wonder how
many of them are illegal
immigrants? I don't know
how to pursue it, but I wish
somebody else would.
No politics, please. I'd
like to thank the Venice
Yacht Club for another out-
standing Christmas parade.
The parade gets better every
year. I'd just like to ask
Venice Yacht Club if they
would do more monitoring
of the decorations of the
boats and don't have any
political candidates that are
running for president used
on the signs on the boats
because it was really bad
that they did that.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The boat
parade is not put on by the
yacht club, but by a separate
committee, many of whose
members belong to the yacht
club.
Charm. Yes, Venice
should have a trolley service
from the downtown parking
lot. That would help to keep
the town charming.
Wonderful. Three cheers
for the Venice Arboretum. It
is interesting in the daytime
to read about the different
palm trees, and at night with
the Christmas lights, it is
beautiful. A big thanks for
those responsible it. It's

Proposed land regs have shortcomings


BY GAYLE REYNOLDS
GUEST COLUMNIST

On Dec. 19 the Sarasota
County Board Commission
will hold public hearings to
discuss proposed amend-
ments to county regulations
that will potentially alter the
aesthetic and ecological val-
ue of our urban open spaces
forever.
Local Sierra Club and
Audubon members began
meetings in 2006 with county
commissioners and resource
protection staff to lobby for
greater open space protec-
tion and the wildlife depen-
dent on them.
The Sierra Club paid an
environmental lawyer to
draft a stronger protection
ordinance, based on regula-
tions from other counties,
as a model on which to
build. Sierra representatives
attended meetings with
county staff and developer
representatives who worked
on the proposed regula-
tions.
Unfortunately, these
changes to the habitat pro-
tection code are being pro-
posed by resource protec-
tion officials without the
facts required to justify
them. They haven't deter-
mined how much upland
habitat is left and where it
occurs.
The last habitat survey
mentioned in the 2006 ver-


sion of the county's com-
prehensive plan dates from
the late '80s and it only in-
cluded coastal habitats.
We believe the proposed
regulations are premature
and inconsistent with re-
quirements of Sarasota Cou-
nty's Comprehensive Plan
regarding native habitat be-
cause the county has yet to
establish the mandatory
benchmark against which
the proposed amendments
must be measured.
Nevertheless, if the board
elects to proceed without
obtaining the needed data,
we strongly recommend
onsite preservation and res-
toration of existing upland
habitats and request the fol-
lowing modifications to the
proposal:
Donation to county
environmental fund this
"pay as you pave" proposal
should be rejected for its
lack of environmental ben-
efits or native habitat pro-
tection. While it may insign-
ificantly increase the county
coffers, it will do little or
nothing to protect or pre-
serve native habitat as open
space, particularly in urban
areas. As previously and
unanimously stated by the
board of county commis-
sioners, this option certain-
ly should not go forward.
Off-site alternatives -
off-site alternatives really
mean on-site native habitat


destruction. There should
be a moratorium on off-site
alternatives until the native
habitat study mandated by
the comprehensive plan's
Objective 4.4.3 is complet-
ed. Should the board wish
to forgo a moratorium on
off-site alternatives despite
the lack of adequate native
habitat data, a four to one
ratio for offsite alternatives
should be required and
upland creation should
occur immediately adjacent
to the affected area. This
would provide an effective
incentive .for petitioners to
avoid moving habitat off-
site.
We urge the board of
county commissioners to
expedite the required native
habitat mapping and then
use that as a benchmark to
amend protective regula-
tions so they are consistent
with and implement the
requirements of the com-
prehensive plan.
Please contact County
Commission Chair Nora
Patterson at npatters@sc.
gov.net or 861-5398 today
and ask her to provide the
highest possible protection
for our diminishing urban
habitats and open space.


Gayle Reynolds is chair of
the Manatee/Sarasota Sierra
Club.

were honored during the regular Sarasota Couny).

illustration, along with tips on making landscapes
"bay-friendly," an overview of the county's new

the special
3 |mechanisms that makes
childbirth possible
S involves the release of
natural hormones that relax
the mother-to-be's ligaments and
joints. The pelvis, in particular,
experiences a softening and
stretching of ligaments that allow the
baby easier passage during labor.
However, the price to be paid for an
easier delivery is weakened sacroiliac
joints, which can become painful while
walking, standing, or bending. The
weight of the growing baby also
weakens stomach muscles and places
pressure on the lower back. In
addition, as a pregnant woman's
center of gravity changes, she may
lean backward, causing even more
strain. To help with these changing
conditions and consequent pain,
pregnant women are encouraged to
enlist a chiropractor in their
pregnancy support teams.

Early defense, late offense lifts Venice over Southeast


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

By halftime it looked like
the Venice High School boys
basketball team was on its
way to a defensive perfor-
mance similar to Wednes-
day's 46-25 game against
Lakewood Ranch High
School. Buitafter managing
just 13 points, in the
first half, Southeast High
School put up 34 second-
half points.
It wasn't enough. The
Indians (6-1, 4-1) held on
with 31 second-half points
of their own to win the
game 59-47.
"I thought the first half
we played really, really


well," Venice Head Coach
Steve Cavallaro said. "I was-
n't particularly happy with
our second half. I think one
of the lessons we learned
tonight is a well-coached
team, even though they're
down, is not going to go
away. Southeast is a well-
coached team."
The Indians built up a big
enough lead in the first half,
and kept up with Southeast
(2-6, 1-3) in the second,
with an offensive attack led
by Trey Burton. The sopho-
more finished the game
with a season-high 26
points and seven rebounds.
"Trey can have a huge
night any night. He's a really
smart ball player and he did


a great job tonight." Cava-
llaro said. "I think anybody
has a hard time matching
up with Trey, he's a really
good inside and outside ball
player. He's basically what
we call a true, two-dimen-
sional player. He can play
perimeter and he can play
inside, so that makes him
really hard to guard."
Kyle Jutras also had a big
night for the Indians with 15
points, followed by Justin
Grant with eight and Tyler
Christian with six. Anthony
Hackett and Brandon Wil-
kinson rounded out the
scoring with two each.
On their way to a 28-13
,first-half deficit, the Sem-
inoles shot less than 30 per-


cent from the floor and
missed the only two free-
throws they attempted.
Venice didn't shoot much
better, they just took more
shots. The Indians also
made seven of eight free-
throws.
Good job
"We did a really good job
contesting shots and block-
ing out," Cavallaro said.
"Offensively, I thought we
moved the ball really well
and the player movement
was really good. The first
half was really good."
Southeast's leading scor-
er this season, John Ether-
idge, was held to just six
first-half points. He came'


alive in the third quarter
with nine to finish with 15
points.
"We did a better job in
the first half of contesting
his shot. He's a good shooter
and we did a pretty good job
of making it hard for him to
catch it and hard for him to
shoot it the first half, but we
didn't do too much of that
in the second half," Cava-
llaro said.
Etheridge and Southeast
outscored Venice in the sec-
ond half 34-31. The Indians
shot 13 of 18 for 72 percent
to keep pace with the
Seminoles, who shot an
impressive 57 percent.
Southeast just had no
answer for Burton and


Jutras, who combined for 19
points in the second half.
Good thinking
"We made some pretty
good decisions on when to
attack the basket and when
to shoot," Cavallaro said.
"Our defense is always
going to be .the thing that
keeps us in games and
keeps teams from making
big runs against us. I don't
think you can shoot it that
great every night. You defi-
nitely have to be able to play
some D."

Courtside celebrates 30 years


The players (left to right): club founder Phil Baker, Lyn Abbot, Chris Blunt and professional coach

BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

One hundred arid fifty

Auburn Road. Director and
professional coach Jim
Dempsey together with
club officers launched the
30th year celebration at 9:30
a.m. with a round robin
tournament climaxing with
a special exhibition match.
Partnering with 90-year-
old Chris Blunt, Dempsey
played 79-year-old club
founder Phil Baker and his


80-year-old partner Lyn
'Abbot.
"I was able to move
-around faster," said Demp-
sey admitting he and Blunt
won the fun and entertain-
ing exhibition match. Abbot
went on to victory the next
day playing in a Longboat
Key tennis tournament.
Founder honored
Courtside Tennis Club
President Bill Behning read
a special proclamation hon-
oring and bestowing upon
club founder Baker an hon-
orary lifetime club mem-
bership.


"I felt like I was coming
back home," said Baker
reminiscing with all the
older players attending the
special celebration. Mrs.
Baker received a bouquet
honoring her association
with the club.
Dempsey spoke about
the club's growth with the
current membership of one
hundred, aged from five to
ninety years and the club's
family atmosphere. Follow-
ing the celebration cookout
lunch, Baker concluded the
event saying it was his in-

Traffic citations rake in the revenue


BY CAROLYN QUINN
STAFF WRITER

The woman in the silver
sports car looked flustered.
She stared down at her lap.
Buckled into the seat beside
her was a silent little girl
who looked solemnly out
the driver's-side window,
where moments earlier a
Florida Highway Patrol
trooper had stood. He had
paced the car going 89 mph
in a 70-mph imnit section of
Interstate 75.
The woman had a one-
word response for how she
felt at that' moment:
"Bad."
The woman in the Niss-
an coupe pulled off the
shoulder and back onto the
southbound interstate, head-
ing toward the Charlotte-Lee
county line. Trooper Edward.
Pope got back into his
unmarked pauol car.
Pope, who works primar-
ily in Charlotte and Sarasota
counties, has seen all kinds
of reactions from people
who have being pulled over.
Some, like the woman in
the sports car, get flustered.
Others get, defensive or
angry. Pope has heard ex-
cuses for speeding that
range from needing to pick
up a child to needing to go
to the bathroom. He has
seen both men and women
cry
"Sometimes, society can
be strange," he said.
Where it goes
Emotional as receiving a
traffic citation can be, it's
also common 130,714
were issued by law enforce-
ment in Charlotte, DeSoto,


Hardee and Sarasota coun-
ties in 2006, about a 10 per-
cent increase from the pre-
vious year.
Nor is it cheap, with the
lowest speeding fines in
Charlotte, Sarasota and
DeSoto counties costing
$83.50. In those counties,
the costliest fine without a
required court date for
going 20 to 29 miles per
hour over the limit in a
school or construction zone
- is $358.50 without 'the
traffic school election. ,
Money from fines is split
into a number of categories.
Some of the money goes
toward court costs. Others
are then generally split up
into a' variety of funds.
Among them: .' '
A child welfare trust
fund, which goes towards
training Department of
Children and Families
workers; '
,* A juvenile justice trust
fund, for the training of
Department of Juvenile
Justice workers;
A. nongame wildlife
fund, which goes toward
documenting wildlife
trends, creating educational
programs and developing
conservation programs;
An emergency.medical
services trust fluid, which
aims to improve and
expand emergency pre-
hospital medical services.
Money from the fund is
subsequently given to local
departments, and 45 per-
cent of all money is required
to be disbursed to counties
with each county receiving
a percentage of those funds
that corresponds to the per-
centage that county con-


tribute to the overall fund;
The brain and spinal
cord injury rehabilitation
trust fund, which covers the
cost of care for people with
brain and spinal cord
injuries as a payer of last
resort for Florida residents.
Money from the fund is also
contributed to research,
equipment and education.
Many traffic fines also
have a portion earmarked
for the state agency law
enforcement radio system,
which is a communications
network utilized by
statewide agencies and
local agencies working
through mutual aid chan-
nels.
None of these programs
is funded exclusively
through, traffic citation
fines. They also derive fund-
ing from other fees, such as
those associated with regis-
tering a motor vehicle.
Sign of the times
Counties also have the
option to appropriate cer-
tain fines for local use.
Charlotte, Sarasota and
DeSoto counties all have
ordinances allowing $15 of
each speeding fine to go
into a court facilities fund
and $2 to be used for local
law. enforcement educa-
tion. Because fine amounts
are set partially by the state
and partially by individual
counties, the cost of a fine
can vary by a few dollars
from one county to the
next.
Increasingly, people are
having trouble paying traf-
fic fines, said Jean Joslin,
traffic supervisor for the
Charlotte County Clerk of


Courts' office. Between Oct.
1, 2006 and Sept. 31, this
year, 7,943 people in
Charlotte County didn't pay
their civil traffic fines. That
can result in a driver's
license suspension fol-
lowed by additional fees to
reinstate the license.
More people are opting
for payment plans to gradu-
ally pay off fines, Joslin said.
"I think it's probably a
sign of the economic
times," said James Masch,
Charlotte County Clerks'
chief deputy.
An option to attend traf-
fic school, either in person
or online, is also available in
most cases. Except for cita-
tions for speeding six to
nine miles per hour over the
limit, deciding to do traffic
school lowers the overall
fine in DeSoto and
Charlotte counties. In
Sarasota County, a red-light
violation also costs more
with the school election..
However, doing traffic
school prevents points from
being assigned to a driver's
license, which in turn can
result in lower auto insur-
ance costs. A driver may
only do traffic school once
every year and cannot do it
more than five times in his
lifetime. A fine may be paid
before the driver attends
traffic school.
Although traffic citations
do bring in money, law ene-
forcement officials say that's
not the point.
"If you don't stop these
people, educate them,"
Pope said, "they won't stop."

Andy, who admits to being 7 3/4 years old and lives in North Port, came to a summer meeting of the Venice Coin and Currency Club.
He won the Presidential Mint set of coins that he is holding here. Later, defying all odds, the young man won a roll of quarters in the
raffle. He came away thinking this was an OK club.


Coin Club President George Athens presents Nick Saputo with
his raffle-drawing winnings. Nick is the new club vice president.


That sounded good, but Ralph went on to say
the "take" could have amounted to much more I
Dad taken that $60 in pennies and bought two
rolls of new, uncirtulated coins one roll of
new nickels and one roll of new pennies.
"Today, that $60 worth of pennies would be
worth $17,890," Ralph Cundiff said.
Cundiff is a great believer in buying rolls of
new, uncirculated coins as investments, as
Christmas gifts, or as ways to pass along
money to heirs.
You can get rolls of coins at banks and,
often, at stores and restaurants; just be sure you
specify new and uncirculated when you buy
your rolls of coins.
You can learn how to do that and more by
checking out the Venice Area Coin and
Currency Club. The group meets on the
fourth NlMonday of every month at 7 p.m. at
the Venice Public Library,. 300 S. Nokomis Ave.
For more information, call Athens at 497-
1651.

Editor's note: As I'm sure
you are aware, it is never a
good idea to allow children

especially true regarding
today's column. Keep this
column away from children.
You have been warned.
Carry on.

Part two of a three-part
series

Hang on to your sanity,
ladies and gentlemen. It's
time for News from Ecine-
ville.
The blonde (Pamela
Anderson) and brunette
(Courtney Cox) were
picked up outside 'a
women's club on the east
side of the City of Our
Lady of the Sorrows of the
Great Meadow.
And, ladies and gentle-
men, it appears the
women's club is not the
same kind of women's
club that our God-fearing,
respectful, fine women
attend here in our fair city
of Ecineville.
No.
This place, according to
the Kralc County Sheriff's
Office, was called Tri-
babe's.
Kralc County State's
Attorney Moe Fine an-
nounced he hasn't decid-
ed whether charges will be
filed against thepair. ,
"Well, when one of our,
KCSO female -undercoverI
detectives, Det. Sandra
Sinfield, walked into
Tribabe's she immediately
spotted Santa. She stated
in her report that 'Santa
was dancing with five to
seven women and appear-
ed to be enjoying himself
unlike any kidnap victim
I've ever seen.' As a result
of her report," Fine said,
"our office intends to
interview as many of the
women who were in the
club last night as possible
before reaching a decision
on whether charges will be
filed. Are there any ques-
tions?"
"Yeah, Ned Dunkin,
Great Meadow Action


News Your Hometown

Local News All the Time
here. Was the female
undercover officer on duty
while she was prowling
through the Tribabe's?
Second, could you
describe the undercover
officer and what she was
wearing? Or even better, is
there any surveillance
tape from inside the
Tribabe's that we could air
over and over and over
again until we air it one
more time during May
sweeps?" Dunkin asked.
"No, you slime," said
Fine.
It appears Anderson
and Cox had thrown Santa
in the trunk of their 1966
Thunderbird and driven
straight to the City of Our
Lady of the Sorrows of the
Great Meadow.
Witnesses interviewed
by law enforcement said
the duo had checked into
the Half-Hour $20 Open
All Night Motel and then
shortly afterward headed
out with Santa.
They were next seen at
Tama's Diner, where they
were served by waitress
Floly Greensheets.
"I wasn't suspicious
because I was working
back to back to back to
back to back double shifts
to be able to afford ,a
Menorah and some gifts
for me and my kids, so I
hadn't seen the news in
days. The guy that owns
this place doesn't allow us
to have a TV or radio,
Anyway, everything seem-
ed normal to me. In this
city, a blonde and a
brunette dressed like they
were going to work at a
strip club out for dinner
with Santa Claus is not
abnormal," said Green-
sheets.
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, it could
snow here in Ecineville.

FINE WHINES


Generation cue


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

I got my best birthday present last
Sunday and it wasn't even my birth-
day.
Technically, it wasn't even my son
Evan's birthday, which we were cele-
brating a day late for various reasons.
It was his present, however.
But first, the back story.
I love to shoot pool. It's one of the
things that bonded me and my grand-
father when I was growing up.
Practically every Saturday he and I
would head to the clubhouse in our
subdivision to play for a few hours.
There was a group of men his age
he'd play with, other than the few
games I could cajole him into playing
with me (they played for money; I did-
n't). Occasionally other kids would
show up, but I mostly had the second


table to myself, so I got to play a lot of
pool.
Pool is simple: poke a ball with a
stick and make another ball go into a
hole. If you can do that on a regular
basis, you'll be a decent player'- and
get your brains beaten in by someone
who knows the game is as much about
the next shot as the one you're facing.
That's a major life lesson I applied
only to pool at the time, but as a father
I now see the bigger picture.
And. that brings us to last Sunday.
I'm not sure how it started, but Evan
and I have become pool-playing bud-
dies. There's a table in the clubhouse in
our subdivision that we've been play-
ing on for at least a couple of years, and
there's a small table he plays on in his
school's after-care program.
In short, Evan loves to play pool. So,
a cue stick of his own was an obvious
choice as a birthday present.


He touched the package several
times during the day and was baffled
by the contents, probably because the
stick was in two pieces and included a
soft case that made him think it was
clothes the anti-present.
Prolonging my suspense, if not his,
it was the last present he opened. His
reaction was everything I could have
hoped for a mix of joy and amaze-
ment. He carried the stick around with
him most of the night, admonishing
me when I gave him a quizzical look,
"What? It's the best present I ever got."
Curiously, he hadn't even asked for
it. My suspicion is he thought it might
be too extravagant a present for an 8-
year-old, because he asked a couple
dozen times how much it cost.
I refused to tell him and said the
question was rude.
But I'll reveal the answer here:
Buddy, it was priceless.

SJIM MILLER
[/SAVVY S .

Dear Savvy Senior,
When my 62-year-old brother
applied for his retirement bene-
I fits early this year, he found that
, Social Security had made several
mistakes on his earnings record
in past years. The result was his
monthly benefit check was much
lower than it should have been. It
took him months to straighten it
out. How can I prevent this from


happening to me? Social
Insecurity
Dear Insecurity,
The best way to keep an
eye on your personal Social'
Security records is to care-
fully review your yearly
Social Security statement,
and don't be surprised if
you uncover an error.
Government watch groups
estimate that the Social
Security Administration
(SSA) makes mistakes on at
least 3 percent of the total
official earnings records it
keeps. Here's what you
should know.

Earnings errors
Social Security benefits
are based on your 35 high-
est-earning years as report-
ed to the government by
your employers. If an

employer has given the
government incorrect
salary data or if the govern-
ment has erred in recording
the information, you want
to get it corrected as quick-
ly as possible. Otherwise
you may not get the full
amount you're entitled to
when you retire. So, when
you receive your annual
Social Security statement,
take the time to compare
the earnings listed in the
statement with income list-
ed onW-2 forms in your tax
records. And if you spot a
discrepancy, follow these
steps:.
Call your nearest Social
Security office (see www
.ssa.gov/locator or call
(800) 772-1213 to get the
number) to report the error.
Some corrections can be
made over the phone.
However, you may need to
schedule an appointment
and go in with copies of
your W-2 forms or tax
returns to prove the mis-
take, or you can mail it in.
If you suspect a dis-
crepancy but don't have
backup records, the SSA
may be able to use your
employment information
to search its records and
correct mistakes. If the SSA
can't locate your records,
you'll need to contact the
employer to obtain a copy
ofyourW-2 for the year in
question.
Once your earnings
record is corrected, SSA will
send you a confirming let-
ter. If you don't receive the
confirmation within three
months, contact SSA again.
And double-check the cor-
rection by making sure it
appears on next year's
statement.

If corrections aren't
made on the next state-
ment you receive, start an
appeals process (see
www.ssa.gov/pubs/10041
.html).
Note: SSA statements are
mailed annually (about
three months before your
birthday) to everyone age
25 and over who is not
already receiving Social
Security benefits. If you're
not receiving yours, see
www.ssa.gov/mystatement.
Other mistakes
Earnings miscalculations
can also happen if the SSA
didn't have your correct
mailing address. If you
don't receive your annual
statement, that's a tip-off. If
there is a mistake, contact
the IRS (SSA depends on
the IRS for addresses) at
(800) 829-3676 and ask
them to mail you the
"Change of Address" form
8822, or print it off at www
.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8822
.pdf, fill it out and mail it
back to the address on the
form.
Two other factors that
can cause mistakes are if
you changed your name
following a marriage or
divorce, or if your date of
birth in SSA records isn't
the same as it appears in
IRS files. Double check
your SSA statement for
these possible mishaps and
make sure your earnings
data matches the amounts
on your W-2 forms. And
whenever you change your
name, or if you notice a
birth date error call the SSA
((800) 772-1213) and ask for

a Social Security Card," and

'Calculation errors
Even when all the earn-

occasionally errs in calcu'-

double check their calcula-
tions by using SSA's formula

rather complex. If you

been miscalculated, point it
out to your local SSA office
and ask them to recalcu-

make sure you receive a
confirming letter and that
the correction appears on

you're already receiving--

burse you for the amount
of the error.

Be one of the 'chickie-mickies' in Portofino


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

On their busy tours of
Tuscany and Cinque Terre,
tourists often overlook Por-
tofino. It's a shame because
the tiny harbor town on the
Italian Riviera with its color-
ful buildings is one of the
most beautiful Mediterran-
ean ports in all of Italy.
As you walk the streets
past the classic boats and
beautiful galleries, don't be
surprised to see some of the
rich and famous. Chickie-
mickies are what Europeans
call Paris Hilton-type tour-
ists. If you stop for lunch in
one of the outdoor cafes, it's
guaranteed you will spot a
few of them in the shops.
Located in the province
of Genoa, Portofino is situ-
ated in the northern Italian
region of Liguria, on a
peninsula in the Tigullo
Gulf.
You can find it by taking a
ferry from Santa Marghe-
rita, Rapallo or Camogli.
Boats are also available
from Genoa and a few other
Riviera towns to the south.
A tourist water service runs
between Portofino and
Cinque Terre from April to
September.
Portofino is car-free, but
you can drive the winding
road near the village where
there is a small parking lot.
You can also take a bus from
Santa Margherita and enjoy
the scenery along the way.
The boat ride to Por-
tofino will take you past
stunning villas built on the
coastline. As the little town
of Santa Margherita disap-
pears from the coast and
your destination draws
closer, the color of Por-
tofino's harbor greets the
eye. It is nothing like the
fishing villages where you
boarded your boat.
After taking pictures of
the harbor and grabbing
lunch at the outdoor cafe, it
is time to climb up to see
the castle that is at the top of


-4
Most of the restaurants in Portofino are pricey, so if you are just
visiting for a day it is wise to grab a piece.of bread or pizza and
a biscotti from the bakery.

The climb up to the castle Castello Brown is worth the trip, even if you just go there to see the view

the hill overlooking the vil-
lage.
Biscotti and coffee
You can reach Castello
Brown by a path to the side
of the gardens. It is not too
steep a trek and the view
from the gardens is worth
the trip. The castle is open
daily but only until 5 p.m. in
the winter.
In the 1800s, the med-
ieval castle was the home of
Yeats Brown, British consul
to Genoa; Inside you can
see furniture and paintings
belonging to the Browns, as
well as photos of all of
Portofino's most famous
visitors.
After your trip to the cas-
tle and before you head
down to the the- shops, the'
San Giorgio church and
Lighthouse should be your
next visit. They are right on
the path going to the castle.
Most of the restaurants
in Portofino specialize in
seafood. You will find the

buildings create a picturesque setting for tourists visiting the
town.


prices much higher than in
Santa Margherita. So much
so, you might just want to,
grab a panini from one of
the bakeries.
While in the bakery, grab
a biscotti, a twice-baked
Italian cookie. The ones in
Portofino are covered in
icing and are particularly


good with strong coffee.
Whether youse.e.PErto-
fino on a day trip or are
staying for a week, a visit to
the town will be a fine expe-
rience of great beauty that
should not be missed.

Tips for bringing home puppy


BERNIE THOMAS
GUEST COLUMNIST
More than a million pup-
pies will be given as gifts
this holiday season. To help
new pet parents prepare,
Bark Busters, the world's
largest dog training compa-
ny, has compiled a series of
essential tips based on the
experience of the compa-
ny's worldwide network of
dog behavioral therapists.
-The love and laughter
that comes with a new pup-
py epitomizes the joy of dog
ownership. But while pup-
pies are cute and cuddly,
accepting the role of guar-
dian for a new pup comes
with significant responsibil-
ities. Be certain you or the
recipient is ready for such a
commitment.
Tips for the new arrival
Before you bring home
your puppy, have these sup-
plies on hand:
A crate is an invaluable
tool when housebreaking a
puppy. It also provides your
young dog with a sense of
security when you are busy
or away. However, never
leave a puppy in a crate for
longer than four or five
hours.
Bedding should be thick
enough for comfort and
sized appropriately for the
breed. Be aware that some
puppies that are left una-


tended for too long may
chew their bedding.
Baby gates serve as a
great training tool in that
they can be used to block off
"restricted" areas of the
house and help to teach
your puppy what areas are
off limits.
Dog-appropriate toys,
are the smart choice. Al-
though children's toys look
cute, they can prove haz-
ardous. Never use old cloth-
ing or shoes as toys; a puppy
cannot differentiate bet-
ween your old and newly
bought items. Stick with
size-appropriate toys for
your breed. Always super-
vise your puppy when he is
playing with toys that con-
tain squeakers as they can
be a choking hazard.
Two dog bowls: .one for
fresh water and one for
quality dog food. Consult
your veterinarian for food,
recommendations.
A well-fitted collar and
leash are a must for training
and safety during outdoor
excursions. Avoid chain
leashes; a soft cotton leash
is a better alternative.
A pet ID tag allows your
puppy to find his way home
should he roam. You may
also want to microchip your
puppy at your next vet visit.
Brushes and dog sham-
poo will eventually be need-
ed for every breed.
An odor and stain elimi-
nator is a cleaner you will
want on hand for those in-
evitable toileting accidents.
A veterinarian should be
researched and chosen be-
forehand. You will want a
contact. should an emer-
gency arise. Introduce your
new puppy early to the vet
and learn what.vaccina-
tions he \iWil need. -


'Puppy proofing'
I In addition to the essen-
tial supplies mentioned
above, ensure your home
and yard are safe for the
exuberance of a new puppy.
Remove potential haz-
ards--anything that would
make an enticing chew toy
- such as power cords, win-
dow blind cords, potted
house plants, children's toys,
coins, batteries, shoes and
clothing, garbage bins, and
anything "bite sized" that
could be ingested by a curi-
ous puppy. Outside, remove
bite-size rocks, sticks, fertiliz-
ers, gardening tools and
equipment. Also, be mindful
of toxic household and ga-
rage items, such as anti-
freeze, detergents, mothballs
and tobacco products. (See a
list of dangerous items at
BarkBusters. com.)
Move large and unstable
objects out of harm's way.
These objects could poten-
tially fall on your inquisitive
puppy as he explores his
new surroundings.
Move anything cher-
ished or breakable to higher


ground. Puppy tails have a
way of sweeping a coffee
table clean.
Get on your hands and
knees at the puppy's view
- to look for potential
problems. If you. think an
item could be a hazard,
remove it. It's better to be
safe than sorry.
The first day home
Your pup will be excited
and anxious in his new
environment. It is your job
to make him feel safe and
comfortable.
Be patient. Although ac-
cidents will happen, do not
reprimand your puppy dur-
ing the first 24-48 hours
while he is acclimating to
the new environment. But
do praise him profusely
when he does something
positive. This will start your
both off on the right foot.
Structure is a must. Have
a planned schedule from
the day your pup arrives-
especially when trying to
housebreak. Take your

Polar bears are marvelous swimmers. They've been seen swimming hundreds of miles from land, but they are a "vulnerable" species,
according to animal experts, because of loss of habitat broken ice packs, which are melting.


their own protection from
icy arctic waters. It takes
much less energy to assim-
ilate the blubber into their
bodies than it would
require to digest the meat.
Blubber is also the source
of much of the water the
big bears ingest. They can't
drink the salt waters they
swim in, and there are no
pools of liquid water in the
Arctic much of the year.


Polar bears are the kings
of the Arctic. They top the
food chain. They are the
largest land-dwelling car-
nivores on earth. But, like
so many other wilderness
areas, their habitat is
changing fast. Polar bears
live much of their lives on
broken pack ice at the
northern edges of the con-
tinents of North America
and Europe. They're sel-


dom seen very far inland.
Known for their ability
to swim, polar bears have
been seen swimming in
seas hundreds of miles
from land. Because of
global warming, the Arctic
pack ice is forming later
and later each year, and is
breaking up earlier and
earlier the following spring.
The main source of suste-
nance for polar bears is


seals, and they live on the
pack ice. When the pack
ice disappears, the seals
disappear, and polar bears
starve.
These magnificent bears
are now considered a vul-
nerable species----a ranking
more serious than that of
"threatened."
Perhaps not in Santa's
immediate neighborhood,
but Arctic wolves also


dwell in far northern
climes. They're a sub-
species of gray wolf, but
Arctic wolves sport whitish
coats instead. That's na-
ture's way of giving them a
little extra "edge" as they
hunt their prey.
Shaggy musk oxen are
also Arctic dwellers. The
herds of dark brown, heav-
ily homed oxen are able to
dig into the snow with
their hooves for moss, li-
chen and roots. They're
big, ranging from 450 to
675 pounds.
Another Arctic dweller is
the wolverine. It's the lar-
gest of the family that inc-
ludes the skunk and bad-
ger. It can grow up to 40
pounds. The wolverine's
fur can shed ice-crystals,
which made their fur a fa-
vorite of Eskimo peoples,
who used it as trim or lin-
ings on their hoods and fur
parkas.
Of course, lots of species
of birds also inhabit the
Arctic in summer, but most
have left Santa's neighbor-
hood by now. They'll return
next spring, I'm sure.
What could all these
creatures want from Santa
as a holiday gift? I don't
know, but I'd like to give
them peace and content-
ment and an undisturbed
habitat in which to live. I
wish the same for you.

Continuation o Sarasota County history


CINDY GNEGY
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

Historic Spanish Point
held a book signing recent-
ly for Jan Snyder Matthews.
This second revised edition
of her book, "Sarasota,
Journey to Centennial," is


the continuation of the his-
tory of Sarasota County. In
the 1970s, the Junior Lea-
gue of Sarasota, which is
now the Gulf Coast Heri-
tage Association, asked
Matthews to write the
county's history.
"Documentary history is
a continuum. Each succes-
sive edition builds on its
predecessors," she stated
in the book's acknowledg-
ments.
Joining her was Clyde
Butcher, known for his
black and white landscape
photography. His photo of
Venice Beach sand dunes


became the book's cover.
Also signing Matthews'
book was former U.S. Se-
nator and former Governor
of Florida, Bob Graham
and Allan Horton, a fourth-
generation Floridian. Du-
ring the book signing an
impromptu discussion
about global warming and
its effects ensued. Graham
said people could write to
him with suggestions on
bringing awareness to Flo-
ridians on reducing energy.
Graham and Butcher are
longtime advocates of en-
vironmental issues, with
the Everglades being a pas-


sionate concern.
Lamar Matthews, the
author's husband and vocal
advocate, explained that
more than 60 businesses
and institutions within
Sarasota County were as-
ked to include their histo-
ries in this edition.
Sam Holladay, president
of Gulf Coast Heritage As-
sociation, praised Historic
Spanish Point.
"This is a 30-acre jewel,"
he said. Holladay's person-
al tie to Spanish Point was
visiting Mike Brock at Point
Cottage in the '70s. Brock's
father worked as an on-site


landscaper for the Palmers.
Marion Almy of Archa-
eological Consultants Inc.,
creator of the Windows of
the Past display for Historic
Spanish Point, also attended.
"Years ago a hole had
been dug into an Indian
midden, and no one knew,
what to do with it. We
eventually got the funding
and we did it," Almy said
referring to the display.
Recently refurbished, the
display has new video,
graphics and additional
displays.
"I'm very proud of my
great-grandparents and the


family for their contribu- k
tions to the community,"
said Marguerite Bartlett.
Bartlett's great-grandfather
was JohnWebb, who settled
Spanish Point. Bartlett -
attended first grade the y&er
Osprey School opened. The
school building now houses
the visitor's center at His-i
toric Spanish Point.

Some photos of the Jaek
Apple memorial and the
Tartan Ball were scheduled
to run last week but didn't
make the paper, so they are

Six Steps to Success


Tired of trying to make your way around
that old blender, bassinet, those bikes and boxes of
cast-off clothing? Schedule a garage sale to convert
those extra items into cash.


2 Ask your friends if they want to join in. More
merchandise means more shoppers and more money
for everyone.


3. Clean and polish your items. Fold clothes
neatly and arrange them by size and gender. Group
small pieces (like jewelry) together into plastic bags
so they're easy to price and display.


.4. Arrange for plenty of tables and hanging
items so you can display everything prominently.
When it's time, set up your sale so people can move
around easily.


5 Make a list of your best items, and then call
The Sun Classified to schedule your ad. Your ad rep
can help you create an ad that's sure to get customers
calling!


e Through The Sun Classified, you'll send the
news of your sale to thousands of potential buyers;
So, get out your change box and get ready to sell!
