Another developer changes his hotel plans


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

The winds of change con-
tinue to blow through the
slowly recovering residential
real estate market.
Entrepreneurs and de-


velopers are returning to the
roots of their original success
by encouraging tourists. They
are courting vacationers by.
turning original plans about-
face in this difficult economy.
A little more than a year
ago Henry Rodriguez, who


brought Wal-Mart to
Osprey, announced
plans for a distinctive
luxury condomini-
um hotel on the site
of the former gas sta-
tion at the northwest
comer of Albee Road Rodriguez


and U.S. 41 in Nok-
omis.
A few months later
he confirmed Col-
onial Bank -would
build on the site of
the gas station. With-
in a few weeks the


gas station was torn down..
With the opening in the
past few days of all six lanes
of U.S. 41 following more
than two years of road work,
Rodriguez announced con-
struction of the bank is
planned for early 2008.


Now plans for the hotel
have changed completely in
this almost stagnant real
estate market. Rodriguez
anticipates construction
will start mid-2008 as

Home for the holidays


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

Dolores Freund and her
granddaughter, Jennifer
Nutter, won't be homeless
this Christmas after all,
thanks to the efforts of sev-
eral generous people.
A week ago her future
was uncertain. After' major
surgery she could no longer
earn money to pay her
mortgage. The bank was
about to foreclose whether
plight was publicized in the
Venice Gondolier Sun.
Then the community
stepped up'to help.
Two months of house
payments -were 'paid by
Frank O'Neal, an assistant
,' "


manager at Scott Paint in
Sarasota.
"He just saw the story
and volunteered to cover
her house payment," said a
fellow employee. "He is just
that kind of guy."
Tom and Christine Klei*
agreed to pay two car pay-
ments, and J. R. Pump Ser-
vice, Venice, donated $1,000
worth of work so Freund
and Nutter could have run-
ning water.
Her Florida Power & Light
bill was paid by the Salvation
Army and the Saint Vincent
dePaul Society. Collections
were taken at ABC 7 News
and an anomonous donor
brought in cash to the
Gondolier Sun.


The two will also get help
from the Senior Friendship
Center and the Venice Police
Department this.holiday.
"My grandmother is do-
ing a lot better," said Nutter.
"In fact, this is the happiest I
have ever seen her."
Barbara Delgato, Nutter's
guidance counselor, took
the' 15-year-old on a shop-
ping spree for clothes. She
also assisted her in making
up most of the school work
she missed due to her
grandmother's illness.
Freund got into this fin-
ancial predicament when
she was hospitalized after,
cancer surgery. Bills mount-
ed up and her daughter left
home with most of Freund's


money. Now, with the bills
paid, Freund can think
about Christmas for a little
while, and maybe put up a
tree.
.. "I realized it was almost
Christmas when I stopped
worrying about the bills,"
Freund said.
One of the people offer-
ing assistance is a financial
specialist from Raymond
James who hopes to consol-
idate her loans so she won't
fall into this predicament
again.
"It is wonderful that so
many people have done so
much for us," Freund said.

County air quality in bottom five


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

How dangerous is the air
that Sarasotans breathe?
Rather, according to the
American Lung Association
of Florida -- especially, if
you're a diabetic, asthma
sufferer, under the age of 18
or over the age of 65, or have
cardiovascular disease, ch-
ronic bronchitis or em-
physema.
In its annual report on
what we breathe, the associ-
ation's national research

arm reported that "one of
three persons in the U.S.
lives in an area with un-
healthful short-term levels
of particle pollution" That is
a total of 93.7 million Am-
ericans.
More than 366,000 of
those live in Sarasota, where
air quality has been declin-
ing. We have been experi-
encing a significant rise in
ozone levels. The review's
most ominous reported tr-
end was that air pollution is
increasing east of the
Mississippi River.

At the same time, the

to its. surprise, a drop in
deadly pollution particles
has been reported in Cal-
ifornia and other western
states.
Air quality in Sarasota
County ranks fifth-worst in
the state, behind Santa Rosa,
Nassau, Bay and Escambia
counties, in that order, ac-

STAFF REPORT

There's a new game in
Sarasota County and its
popularity is rising faster
than you can say "Peter
Piper picked a peck of pick-
led pepper."
Pickleball is being played
by young and old across the
country. It has become one
of the most popular activi-
ties in high school physical
education classes, recre-
ation centers and adult
community tennis facilities.
This net-court game uses
a lightweight paddle and a
plastic, perforated ball. The
game is a combination of
tennis, racquetball and bad-
minton and is played on a
tennis court with the stan-
dard tennis net; how-
ever, the court is marked off
to the size of a badminton
court, 20 by44 feet.
It can be played as either
singles or doubles. Players hit
the ball over a net about 36
inches high with what looks
like an oversized pingpong
paddle.
Good workout
Venice resident Jack Beck
plays on Saturdays at Bird
Bay's tennis courts with a
group of friends.
He .began playing four
years ago at The Villages in
Ocala, which has 80 courts,
he said.
"Every time they build a
new village, they're building
new pickleball courts," Beck
said.
It's also big in Leesburg,
Fort Myers and Sun City. He
recently found through the
Internet that it has a follow-
ing in Anna Maria Island.
"I have been inviting a lot
of people, but we can't con-
tinue to invite them to Bird

Bay," he said.
Beck is happy the county
is getting involved. ,
"Some people really get
into it. It's a good workout.
(But) not the big, hard serve
coming at you."
Dogged pursuit
With less running than
tennis and an emphasis on
coordination, patience and
strategy, rather than stren-
gth and a strong (fast) serve,
Pickleball requires more
skill than athleticism.
The game is similar to
table tennis in that you can
learn how to play quickly
and become skillful after
just a few games. It can be
played by two individuals in
a singles match or in dou-
bles.
Pickleball was invented
40 years ago in the driveway
of a former U.S Represent-
ative, Joel Pritchard of Se-
attle, Wash. In 1965, Prit-
chard, a friend and their
families improvised a game
on a badminton-size court.
Pritchard's dog "Pickles" liked
to run off with the loose balls,
inspiring the name of the
new game.
Pickleball has been intro-
duced locally at Bird Bay Vill-
age inVenice, Nokomis Com-
munity Center and La Casa in
North Port and has been well
received by many residents.
The game is so popular
that Sarasota County Parks
and Recreation is looking at
starting organized leagues.
Boom
The game is being played
throughout Florida and was
even included as an official
sporting event at this year's
Games for Life (the Senior

LINCOLN PERRY was America's first black movie star who
got his break in Hollywood in 1927. He is best known as the
character of Stepin Fetchit, a befuddled, mumbling, shift-
less simpleton. But he was anything but what he appeared
to be on the screen. Perry was an intelligent, amazingly
complex man. By the mid-1930s, Perry was at his peak. He
was a millionaire with a fleet of luxury cars and expensive
suits.


Warm Christmas


Forecasters say Christmas
will likely be pleasantly warm
in our area. That's good news.
Here's why.
Tourism is Florida's major
industry. This year, a devalued
dollar has attracted Euro-
peans and Canadians to
come winter with us, but
overall there aren't as many
snowbirds as usual. Yankees
are staying home, scrimping
for an uncertain tomorrow.
We need them here.
When Christmas is warm,
our visitors send photos of
themselves in the Gulf to
friends up north. Those
friends are inspired to come
on down. So bring on a 78-
degree day. That would be a
great Christmas gift.

Kleinlein na med school board chair


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

Kathy Kleinlein was el-
ected chair of the Sarasota
County Sc-
hool Board
in Novem-
ber. This is
the second
time she
will serve as
chair, hav-
c ing served
as school
Kleinlein board chair
in 2004-05.
Kleinlein is serving a sec-
ond term on the board rep-
resenting District 5, which
includes Venice, North Port
and Englewood.
"I am delighted to serve


again as chair of the School
Board of Sarasota County,"
Kleinlein said in a district
news release. "Our adminis-
tration, teachers, support
staff, parents and students
are committed to the very
best in educational resour-
ces and achievement, and
we try to facilitate that com-
mitment in every decision
we make."
In her role as chair, Klein-
lein will facilitate work-
shops and meetings of the
board. She will attend agen-
da reviews with the super-
intendent, department
heads and administrators to
ensure board members
have enough information to
make understand issues
and make decisions. In add-


ition, she will represent the
board at groundbreaking
and events.
Going live
A big change is on tap in
the communications realm
next year when school board
meetings will be televised live
on TV Channel 20. Until now
they have been taped and
shown later.
"This is a big change.
Think it's important for peo-
ple to see what is going on
when it goes on," Kleinlein
said.
A long-term issue facing'
the school board is the Rud-
olph Building on the River-
view High campus, accord-
ing to Kleinlein. The "drop
dead" date for raising $15


million to save the building is
' March 15, and it is a continu-
ing issue for the board.
Two larger issues facing
the board are budget cuts
from the state and the "give-
back to the state," and the
capital budget needs for the
district, Kleinlein said.
"The state took back $3
million and there will be
more," she said.
On capital. budget needs,
the district has identified
about a half billion dollars in
capital needs with $375 mil-
lion needed to rebuild Venice
High and Booker High
schools and build a new
North Port high school.
"These are the two major
issues facing the board and
will be for the next year,"


Kleinlein said.
Background
Kleinlein holds bache-
lor's and master's degree in
English, a master of busi-
ness administration in mar-
keting and finance, a mas-
ter's in theology and a doc-
torate in education.
She taught high school
and college English and was
a training and development
executive for Pfizer Pharm-
aceuticals and Reuters Am-
erica, according to the news
release.
In 1974 she became the
first woman in the United
States to be directly comis-
sioned into the Army Nat-
ional Guard. She is a veteran
of the 42nd Infantry "Rain-


bow" Division from New
York.
Kleinlein moved to En-
glewood in 1991 with her
husband, Ken. She has ser-
ved on several local boards,
including the Sarasota Cou-
nty Planning Commission
and the Venice Regional
Medical Center board.
She is director of Faith
Formation for the 10 coun-
ties that compose the Dio-
cese of Venice and is a pub-
lished author, national sem-
inar leader and workshop
facilitator on faith issues.
Caroline Zucker was
elected vice chair at the
same meeting in which
Kleinlein was elected chair.

Students are speaking in (foreign) tongues


Spanish, French and German are still staples in
high school language departments, but
Chinese and Japanese are among the lan-
guages students are requesting.


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
AND ANNE
KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITERS

Nationwide, high school
language class offerings are
changing as alternatives -
Chinese, Arabic or Amer-
ican Sign Language join
the typical Spanish and
French classes in the cur-
riculum. School districts are
adding options so students
have a competitive edge in
an increasingly shrinking
world.
Steve Ackley, with the
American Council on the
Teaching of Foreign Lan-
guages in Virginia, said the
last survey of schools offer-
ing Chinese and Arabic was
taken in 2000.
"We're getting ready to do
a new enrollment study, so I
really don't know (current
numbers)," he said. "But,
just guessing, I'm sure there's
been a massive change in
terms of Chinese and
Arabic. And I'm convinced
we will find a significant
change in all languages."
Linda Crane, program
specialist for Sarasota Cou-
nty School District Lan-
guageArts grades six-12 and
foreign language programs,
said Sarasota County sc-
hools are also expanding
their language offerings.
"Student interest pr-
ompted it," she said. "En-
rollment in foreign langu-
ages is very dependent on
student interest. We had
another high school that
considered* adding Chinese,
and we had an instructor
lined up, but there wasn't
enough interest so we
couldn't have it."
German was offered for a
time, but was recently
phased out due to lack of
interest.
Differences
Marilyn Ruthardt, foreign
language department chair
at Venice High School, said
five teachers conduct four
levels of classes in Spanish
and Italian throughout the
school year.
"In Spanish, we also offer
Advanced Placement class-
es," she said, which is much
more challenging and rigor-
ous for the students.
"If they pass the Advan-
ced Placement Spanish test,
they are already at the col-
lege level and should get
college credit for it," she
said.
All colleges are different,
and some may require a stu-
dent to continue with the
foreign language.
"If a student goes to Har-
vard, that college expects
students to take a foreign
language and continue it
while in college. But UCF in
Orlando may only require a
test, and if you have taken
upper-level courses, you
may not have to take more
foreign language courses,"
she said.
Capped,
Ruthardt said that while
VHS has always offered for-
eign language courses, in
the past they were consid-
ered electives. In the last six
years or so, foreign language
courses have joined the core
curriculum courses of math,
English, history and science.
"It used to be you took
Spanish for fun. You can still
have fun with it, but now it's
serious business," she said.
French used to be offered
at VHS; however, due to too
few students being interest-
ed in studying the language,
the language was cut from
the curriculum. Even if
there were more than 15
students interested in tak-
ing French, there's the ques-
tion of how a French teacher
could be hired because.the
school is still under a soft


hiring freeze.


"You should see my
Spanish III class," Ruthardt
said. "If you walked in, you'd
wonder how there is room
to walk around with 34 kids
in the small portable class-
room."
The class ends Jan. 11
and next fall, the state will
allow no more than 25 kids
in core courses, according
to Ruthardt.
Immersion
On Spanish holidays and
special events, students, in
Ruthardt's Spanish classes
get a taste of culture. The
Mexican festival honoring
deceased family members,
known as the Day of the
Dead, was celebrated Nov.
1-3. Ruthardt handed out a
recipe for Day of the Dead
bread and students were
given extra credit for mak-
ing the bread and bringing
it in and sharing it with
classmates.
One student, who wants
to be a chef, made the bread
plus two key lime pies,
which all tasted good,
Ruthardt said.
Lucien Randazesse tea-
ches Italian I, II, III and IV,
and he is a popular teacher,
according to Ruthardt.
"Everybody loves Italian,
and Fridays are culture day
when he cooks and allows
the students to cook. They
cook pasta and sauces and
-the kids enjoy it," she said.
Ruthardt said she would
like to seeVHS offer Russian
and Chinese, but she does-
n't know when that could
happen.
"I have to wait to hear
from Candace Millington
on that, but I see it coming
up in the near future," she
said.
East meets West
Holly Miklautsch, head
of Pine View's languages
department, said a former
assistant principal spurred
the effort to bring Arabic
and Chinese to that school.
"We started offering the
classes because of the need
for people to know the lan-
guages and the dire need for
our country to have more
people fluent in Chinese
and Arabic," she said.
Miklauisch acknowledged
some .difficulty in acquiring
teachers for those classes.

School.
School.


"But it's very fortunate
that we have two Pine View
parents who stepped in to
take these positions for us,"
she said.
Hemmali Ayad is Pine
View's Arabic teacher. Since
Sept. 11, he said, the num-
ber of schools offering Ara-
bic has increased exponen-
tially.
"There is a need for try-
ing to understand the Arab
people," he said. "Also, Con-
gress granted the Bush
administration the right to
listen to conversations, so
there are tons and tons of
material that need to be
translated. There is also a
high demand in oil-produc-
ing countries for hiring
Arab-Americans and others
that can speak Arabic."
Ayad said the students in
his class composed of
eighth-graders to seniors -
have already exceeded his
expectations.
"The kids love it, and they
are doing very well. They are
starting to read now," he said.
"Honest to God, they're un-
believable. With any lan-
guage, be it English. or Ar-
abic, you have to read
something or see it 20 times
before you learn it, and the
students are making won-
derful progress."

when she finishes school.
After taking four years of
Spanish, she signed up for
Arabic this semester.
"I have a particular affin-
ity for the Arab culture," she
said: "But I didn't think I'd
have the chance to take (the
language) at Pine View."
Native language
Ayad recently reviewed
weather vocabulary with his
14 students. As they listed
the words for wind, rain, st-
orms, sun and moon, Ayad
wrote each down from right
to left in elegant, flowing
Arabic characters on the
classroom white board.
He asked students to
watch his mouth as he pro-
nounced certain words.
"If you pronounce it one
way, if means waves. If you
pronounce it another way, it
means bananas. Do they,
sound a little different to-


you?" Ayad asked.
Echoes of "yeah" and "a
little" came back to him
from the students.
"Good, that means you're
recognizing -the letters,"
Ayad said.
In the beginning of the
semester, Ayad said some


students had a hard time
learning to write Arabic
from right to left. '
Lord said learning the
Arabic characters was the
hardest part of the language.
Thirteen-year-old Chey-
enne Gillespie, an eighth-
grader, also admitted he
had some difficulty learning
the alphabet.
Eman Abid, also in
eighth grade, said learning
Arabic has already come in
handy.
"I'm a Muslim, and I like
to read the Quran," the 14-
year-old said. "(Knowing
some Arabic) makes it easi-
er to read it in my native
language."
Sign of the times
Florida state statutes
require that high school stu-
dents complete two credits
of sequential foreign lan-
guage in high school as a
prerequisite for admission
to state colleges and univer-
sities. A student whose na-
tive language is not English
is exempt from this require-
ment, provided he demon-
strates proficiency in his
native language.
American Sign Language
also now satisfies the high
school foreign language
requirements.

PICKLEBALL RULES
Pickleball is most similar to tennis. The serve must be hit
underhand and each team must play its first shot off the bounce.
After the ball has bounced once on each side then both teams
can either volley the ball in the air or play it off the bounce. This
eliminates the serve-and-volley advantage and prolongs the ral-
lies.
To volley a ball means to hit it in the air without first letting it
bounce. No volleying is permitted within the 7-foot nonvolley
zone, preventing players from executing smashes from a position
within a 7-foot zone on both sides of the net. This promotes the
drop volley or dinkk" shot playing strategies, as Pickleball is a
game of shot placement and patience, not brute power or
strength. A game is played to 11 points and a team must win by 2
points.
The serve: Players must keep one foot behind the back line
when serving. The serve is made underhand. The paddle must
pass below the waist. The serve is made diagonally cross-court
and must clear the nonvolley zone. Only one serve attempt is
allowed, except in the event of a let (the ball touches the net on
the serve and lands on the proper service court). Then, the serve
may be taken over.

HOTEL from Page 1 A
planned, but the hotel will
be built with high-end luxu-
ry suites
"It is a trend of the future
for properties to become
family extended-stay vaca-
tion hotels for tourists,
catering not only to the one-
or two-day stay business
traveler, but with kitchens
for the two-week vacation-
ers," said Rodriguez. 'At the
moment I know of no one
who is considering building
condo hotels."
Rodriguez thought it un-
likely the original plans
would be changed further.
Local policymakers and
Nokomis community lead-
ers have said there is an
urgent need for extended-
stay hotels in the area.
Vogue
Rodriguez confirmed he
is talking with a number of
potential hotel operators,
but at this stage is unable to
name the likely operator of


the new hotel on the prop-
erty he is developing in
Nokomis.
Recently, leading Venice
developer Mike Miller ann-
ounced his proposed Tra
Ponti development on the
riverside between the Hatch-
ett Creek and Venice Avenue
bridges would cater to tour-
ists in preference to condo
investors. Vacationers would
bring needed financial stim-
ulus to the city's restaurants,
retailers, marine operators
and beach concessionaires.
Tourist hotels were out of
vogue for several years as
developers chased the con-
do/hotel phenomenon.
With virtually no long-
stay condo investors around,
two years hurricane free,
warmer weather all year long
and sunshine forecast for
the whole of this holiday
week, the opportunities to
encourage vacationers, the
potential property pur-
chasers, are ideal.

A message for our time and all time


Eight-year-old Virginia
O'Hanlon wrote a letter to
the editor of New York's
Sun, and the quick
response was printed as an
unsigned editorial Sept.
21, 1897. The work of vet-
eran newsman Francis
Pharcellus Church has
since become history's
most reprinted newspaper
editorial, appearing in
part or whole in dozens of
languages in books,
movies, and other editori-
als, and on posters and
stamps.

Dear Editor:
I am 8 years old.
Some of my little friends


say there is no Santa Claus.
Papa says, "If you see it in
The Sun, it's so."
Please tell me the truth;
is there a Santa Claus?

Virginia, your little
friends are wrong. They
have been affected by the
skepticism of a skeptical
age.
They do not believe
except (what) they see.
They think that nothing
can be which is not com-
prehensible by their little
minds.
All minds, Virginia,
whether they be men's or
children's, are little. In this
great universe of ours man


is a mere insect, an ant, in
his intellect, as compared
with the boundless world
about him, as measured by
the intelligence capable of
grasping the whole of truth
and knowledge.
Yes, Virginia, there is a
Santa Claus. He exists as
certainly as love and gen-
erosity and devotion exist,
and you know that they
abound and give to your
life its highest beauty and
joy.
Alas! how dreary would
be the world if there were
no Santa Claus. It would be
as dreary as if there were
no Virginias. There would
be no childlike faith then,


no poetry, no romance to
make tolerable this exis-
tence.
We should have no
enjoyment, except in
sense and sight. The eter-
nal light with which child-
hood fills the world would
be extinguished.
Not believe in Santa
Claus! You might as well
not believe in fairies!
You might get your
papa to hire men to watch
in all the chimneys on
Christmas Eve to catch
Santa Claus, but even if
they did not see Santa
Claus coming down, what
would that prove? Nobody
sees Santa Claus, but that


is no sign that there is no
Santa Claus.
The most real things in
the world are those that
neither children nor men
can see. Did you ever see
fairies dancing on the
lawn? Of course not, but
that's no proof that they
are not there. Nobody can
conceive or imagine all the
wonders there are unseen
and unseeable in the
world.
You may tear apart the
baby's rattle and see what
makes the noise inside,
but there is a veil covering
the unseen world which
not the strongest man, nor
even the united strength of


all the strongest men that
ever lived, couli tear apart.
Only faith, faicy, poetry,
love, romance, can push
aside that curtail and view
and picture the supernal
beauty and glory beyond.
Is it all real? Ah, Vrginia, in
all this world thereis noth-
ing else real and abiding.
No Santa Claus Thank
God! he lives, and ae lives
forever. A thousand years
from now, Virginiu, nay,
ten times ten thousand
years from now, he will
continue to make glad the
heart of childhood.

Merry Christmas.


Remembering Mom


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


Around the holidays each
of us remembers our loved
ones who are not with us. It
was 47 years'ago this month I
lost my mom.
I thought I'd bring a little
smile to each of you as I pass
on something a little modi-
fied, that was sent to me a
long time ago by Bob Rigby. It
tells how our mothers taught
us important lessons in life.7
Mother taught us about
TIME TRAVEL- "If you don't
straighten up, I will knockyou
into'next week" In my case, it
was military school. "
She taught LOGIC: "Be-
cause I said so, that's why." Or,
MORE LOGIC: "If you fall out
of that swing and break your
neck, you're not going to the
store with me." In my case, it
was a good licking.
Mom taught FORESIGHT:
"Make sure you wear clean
underwear,-you never know'
when you will get into an
accident."
She definitely taught us
IRONY: "Keep crying and I'll
give you something to cry
about."
She gave us a lesson in
OSMOSIS: "Shut your mouth
and eat your dinner."
Another lesson she taught
at the dinner table was STA-
MINA "You'll sit there until all
of that spinach is gone." Of
course, she also told us how
good it was for us.
Mother taught about the
WEATHER: "This room of
yours looks like a tornado
went through it."
She was always good
at teaching ANTICIPATION:
"Just wait until we get home."
That was the corollary
of the gift of RECEIVING:
"You're going to get it when
you' get home." I always
hoped we didn't get home.
She even taught me
HYPOCRISY: "If I told you
once, I told you a million
times don't exaggerate."
Once in a while she would
teach the CIRCLE OF LIFE: "I
brought you into this world,
and I can take you out."


Moms also teach BEHAV-
IOR MODIFICATION: "Stop
acting like your father."
Or GENETICS: "You are
just like your father."
She was a great doctor
with the Vicks Vaporub, mer-
curochrome and all. Some of
her other MEDICAL SCI-
ENCE was things like: "If you
don't stop crossing your eyes,
they're going to freeze that
way."
How many times did she
teach me CLEANLINESS:
"You say that word one more
time and I am going to wash
your mouth out with soap." I
had a dean mouth.
She added HUMOR:
"When that lawn mower cuts
offyour toes, don't come run-
ning to me!"
Remember this one about
your ROOTS: "Shut the door
behind you!Were you bom in
abam?"
My mother taught me
RELIGION oh so manytimes:
"You better pray that stain
comes out of the carpet."
he also taught us how to
APPRECIATE ajob well done:
"If you're going to kill each
other, do it outside. I just fin-
ished cleaning."
And she taught me about
WISDOM: "When you get my
age, you will understand.
That one is akin to the one
on JUSTICE: "One day you'll
have kids and I hope they
turn out just like you."
The one thing my mother
taught me was how impor-
tant Christmas was.
She was confined a lot to
the house because of her
asthma, so working on
Christmas became her love.
.She loved to decorate inside
and outside the house, even
on the roof (dad's job). She
hand made felt Christmas
ornaments year-round- that
were sold around the coun-
try, even in Marshall Fields in
Chicago.
Enjoy your Christmas.

I mentioned the tickets for
the Hubcaps show at the
Venice Community, Center
on Jan. 12 but I gave the
wrong number for tickets.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



Oh yes it is about the money


Editor:
I read the article "Traffic citations rake in the revenue."
"If you don't stop these people, educate them," Trooper
Pope said, "they won't stop." In other words, police do not
want the money, only to educate people to obey the law?
Then why don't cops just give a warning ticket?
It says Pope drives an unmarked patrol car to educate
them? I believe that about as much as I would believe a
bank robber who says he only wears a ski mask during a
robbery to keep his head warm, not to hide his identity.
Several years ago I left Nokomis to travel to North
Carolina on vacation. I was following a marked South
Carolina Highway Patrol car at about 2 a.m. and we were
the only cars on the road. We were going about 68 mph and
I didn't notice he kept increasing speed a little at a time.
After I followed the cop about 10 miles, he stopped me.
He said I was speeding 78 mph.1 I said I was just follow-
ing him and he arrogantly told me he is allowed to speed, I
am not. I got a ticket, which he knew I would pay by mail.
Education, I got: 1. Policemen break the law on purpose
to trap people. 2. Policemen are bad examples for citizens
to follow. 3. Do not trust a policeman.
Thank you, policeman, for the education. Thank you,
newspaper, for the warning.

Library is a jewel in
Venice's tiara

Editor:
I read many articles
extolling the attractions and
advantages of our fair city on
the Gulf
These comforting com-
ponents are all evident to
longtime residents and vaca-
tioning visitors. Most folks
That have been here a while
have discovered, and thor-
oughly enjoyed, what many
consider one of the jewels in


our tropical tiara, our Venice
Public Library.
Now back in Neolithic
times a library was just a
place where you would
check out a good book or
two and enjoy a quiet read.
Describing our library in
those limited, simplistic
terms would be like describ-
ing a sunset over the Gulf as
a day's end and omitting the
subtle nuances of pinks,
purples and crimson reflec-
tions in the sky and the ever-
adjusting cloud formations.


I grew up in the thrall of
the New York Public Library
on 5th Avenue and 42nd
Street in New York City, so I
know a good library when I
encounter one.
The Venice library has
concerts; book clubs; semi-
nars; discussion groups;
rewarding children's activi-
ties; genealogy guidance; a
current assortment of DVDs,
CDs, tapes videos; and com-
puters all augmented by a
knowledgeable, friendly staff
that goes out of its way to
guide visitors toward their
objective.
As you may have guessed,
I love this little town and its
wonderful library. Let's not
let it ever lose the simple
small-town flavor of our
Garden of Eden. How sad it
would be to let such simple
beauties be lost or spoiled.

Students getting
lost in the cracks
EDITOR:
From 2005 to 2007, the
cohort of 15- and 16-year-
olds increased by 1,402 chil-
dren, or 15.4 percent.
Adjust the number of
kids that entered the ninth
grade in 2005 by 15.4 per-
cent. That calculates to
3,703 kids.
Only 2,952 kids made the


11th grade in 2007; 751 chil-
dien, or 20 percent, disap-
peared from the rolls at 16
ovtr the three years.
landings spokespersons
are quick to point out that
theydo not use enrollment
courts to calculate how
manm children are "left
behind" between the ninth
and 1th grade. They ratio-
nalize that new students
enroll during the three years
and sone transfer to other
districts
I suggest this disguises a
very serious problem in a
school district that has
enjoyed a net growth in
enrollments over the first
three yeas of high school. I
suggest that a very simple
adjustmen can be made to
reflect for transfers in and
out of district high schools.
If Dr. Noris and his team
of number crunchers are
satisfied thatthe graduation
and dropoat rates in
Sarasota are as acceptable
as the DOE reports, then
Florida will main at the
bottom of nalonal gradua-
tion rates of al 50 states, as
it has in the past several
years.
We have b-en conned
before by the landings on
projected growth of student
enrollments. Th state only
knows what th Landings
tells it.

Location shot. This is a comment for all your writers at

where it's located. Is it on the gulf? Is it near the airport? Is

the former Island Wastewater Treatment Plant south of Sharky's
west of Harbor Drive. Tra Ponti.is the proposed mixed-use pro-
ject planned for the area north of the Venice Avenue Bridge,
east of Business 41 and south of the Tampa Avenue.


Worthless. This is an
addition to comments in
reference to the road being
built in Mexico. It's costing
us $10 billion dollars. The
contract is going to a Mexi-
can contractor. The law firm
representing the contractor
is attached to Rudy Giuliani.
You want to thank your
Bush, your senators and
your congressmen for that
gift for Christmas. Not one
of them is worth a damn. I'd
rather vote for Bob Vedder
for president than any one
of them.
Go away. This is in
response to "Dog dirt." On
the South Venice side, we
cannot walk our dogs from
Shamrock Park because of
the likes of you. The water-
way was not created for
your 5-K road race. Go away.
We don't need your bells
and banana bikes. I walk
twice or three times a week
and dog dirt is not my prob-
lem. You are my problem.


Go away.
Pretty colors. The lights
in downtown Venice are
great. Good to see that the
city of Venice is using lights
with color versus the plain
white lights that it used a
few years ago. This holiday
is certainly the season of
color and this is a great way
to. express it. White lights
give the appearance, of
something commercial and
you actually see white lights-
in stores year 'round. Save
'the white lights for busi- .
nesses.
Whereabouts. I want.to
know which diving school
left its diver out in the gulf
while they were in the park-
ing lot. Also, why didn't that
diver come to the ceremony
of Helping Hands when
they gave Philip Hansen his
award?
EDITOR'S NOTE: Our story
didn't'say the diver was out
with a dive school; she was at
the beach with friends.
Compare them. The
Gondolier Sun says that
Pine View and three other
high schools in Florida have
scored in the top 10 high
schools in the nation, and
that's in a state with an oth-
erwise dismal school per-
formance. Although Pine
View students are all very
high IQ, we read that they
get smaller classes, and
apparently these kids most-
ly hang around to attend the
Senior Prom; and that their
super education helps them
get in to the best colleges.
Well that's fine, but please
get around to telling us tax-
payers how much these
Pine View educations cost,
and how well Pine View stu-
dents do compared to the
kids with the same IQ at
Venice High.
Bumped. I have a com-
ment for "Stop speeding,
not just speeders": If you
put up -a few signs that says
"Speed bump ahead," peo-
ple would have to slow
down because they would-
n't know if there was one or
not.
Cheapskates. Well, the
snowbirds are back, which
means they steal my news-
paper every morning. I live
in South Venice and I don't
have many luxuries. The
newspaper is one of the few
things that I get, and I work
nights so it's but there in the
morning. Every year when
the snowbirds come back,
they start stealing my pa-
pers. I've tried everything I
can. I don't know how to
catch them. I can't get up


early enough. It's ridiculous.
I can't believe they're that
nasty. It never happens in
the summer when they're
not here, so it has to be the
snowbirds. What a bunch of
cheapskates.
Farmed out? Well, Kathy
Dent did it again. Today is
Dec. 10 and I've got a thing
from Kathy Dent's office
saying "Save the date," and
it starts out with Nov. 6.
You'd think they could have
got it out in time. I don't
know what's wrong with
that office up there. Is it
being farmed out to China
or India or somewhere? I
think somebody needs to
look into it.
All wet. I'm out running
early in the morning down
by the Venice Beach area,
and I notice that a lot of
people are watering every
night of the week. Also,
there's problems with peo-
ple who have broken sprin-
klers and water is pouring
out on the street. I just can't
understand why the Venice
police ignore this complete-
ly. They must ride by and see
that the streets are wet and
everything. Why can't they
notify these people and start
ticketing? I kn6w people in
South Venice, where the
county has priority, who
have been fined $500. I just
got back from the Carolinas
where, if you water,, they
turn your water off, no
questions asked. It costs you
$1,000 to get it back on. I
just can't understand what
the Venice police are doing
at night because the streets
are wet, and this is happen-
ing on days that they're not
supposed to be watering. I
know of a gated community
where they're watering
every night of the week.
How can they get away with
doing something like that? I
wish the Venice police
would take care of this.
EDITOR'S NOTE: There are
currently no watering restric-


tions on Venice's reclaimed
water. We'll have a look at
what the VPD does regarding
possible watering violations.
On a limb. Those ice
storms up North should
send a lesson to this area.
What is taking place, as far
as power outages due to the
ice and snow storms in the
central United States this
very evening, can happen
here for the same reason.
No, we're not talking about
the ice and snow being the
culprit; the main problem is
the fact that trees have been
allowed to grow too close to
power lines and power
poles. Sometimes the trees
are grown deliberately too
close, to lines and poles to
hide them from view. It just
looks better. However, you
can see what happens dur-
ing weather-related prob-
lems. Naturally, we don't
face power outages due to
ice and snow; ours are
caused by the wind. We
keep talking about hurri-
cane-tolerant communities
in this area, and very little
has been done to help toler-
ate windstorms of any
degree. Sarasota County, the
city of Venice and other
communities, along with
Florida Power & Light,
should start a program to
remove all trees and limbs
that are allowed to grow too
close and through power
lines. This should be part of
the hurricane-tolerant plan
for all communities. This is
a no-brainer. It's strictly a
common-sense, preventive
approach.
Saw it coming. After
reading the article in the
Gondolier Sun this morning
about the fire service and
the poll on taxes, all I can
say is no' growth, no tour-
ism, more taxes.
Get tanked. This com-
ment is to the person who
called in about gas. I too had
a $150 non-user fee tacked
onto my bill. After inquiring
with the vendor, we pur-
chased our tank and now
we are free to use any com-
pany in the area to fuel our
gas tank. I might say that
there's a company in Bra-.
denton that delivers down
to Venice that was $2 a gal-
lon less than the vendor he
was using. So I suggest he or
she buy the tank and then
go on the open market to
find the cheaper source.
That's what we're doing
now.


Sleeping, awake, he's always there


STEPHEN BAUMANN
GUEST COLUMNIST


This time of year, there
are several commandments
any smart kid will swear by:
Thou shalt not pout.
Thou shalt not cry.
Thou shalt not shout.
They know why.
There's a list.
Checked twice.
Column A: naughty.
Column B: nice.
Column A is far prefer-
able.
For goodness sake, it's
enough to turn any kid into
a mumbling paranoid, es-
pecially when they're jacked
up on sugarplums of expec-
tations. Being a kid is never
a cake walk, but pre-Christ-
mas jitters can drive them
bonkers.
First, there's the obligato-
ry solicitation letter:
Dear Sir:
My name is (Kid). How is


(Mrs. C/Blitzen)? Cold
enough for you?
But enough small talk.
The main purpose of my
letter is to assure you that
I've been very nice all year
long. Not naughty. I cleaned
my room. I walked Snookie.
I did not bother dad while
he was doing important
things like watching (foot-
ball/"Dancing With the
Stars").
Contrary to .what you
may have heard from other
sources, I did not hit my (lit-
tle sister/brother/pet igua-
na) with a Tonka truck. I did
not throw a major fit at bed-
time last Thursday, despite
previous allegations.
Therefore, I am asking
for (various toys, but not too
many; no clothing) this
Christmas.
In conclusion, I look for-
ward to your visit and hope
your flight is a pleasant one.
Sincerely,
(Kid)
Then, there's the requi-
site personal interview.
Nick So, what would you
like this year little (boy/girl)?
Kid: (Deep breath). Stuff.
Nick: Have you been a
good little (boy/girl)?
Kid: (Deeper breath).
(Nod head).
It's enough to give a kid
ulcers before age 5.


To feed this psychosis,
my wife found something
new for the grandchildren
called The Elf on the Shelf.
The concept is sublime: A
cute doll is placed around
the house each day in
December. Every night, he
moves. Every morning, kids
hunt for him.
When grandson Aidan, 4,
first encountered The Elf, he
ran off screaming into the
kitchen and refused to
come out. He must feel like
he's being stalked by
"Chuckie."
The two granddaughters
adapted quickly. They live in
a big house, and every
morning they race to locate
The Elf. One day, he was on
a ceiling fan, and grand-
daughter Ella, 4, surmised
he had gotten stuck there
while flying from the fire-
place to the kitchen.
Still, there is every oppor-
tunity for parental Elf abuse.
My daughter-in-law admit-
ted last week that when Ella
refused to finish dinner, she
was reminded of the omni-
scient Elf. Ella thought
about it for seven seconds
and picked up her fork
again.
Afterward, she walked
over and announced, "I ate
all my dinner, Mr. Elf."
Nice.

knees.
Too late Mrs. Clinton has
discovered that Americans,
have tired of the constant
.negative bashing by cam-
.paigning political oppo-
nents. Americans look for
the first woman president to
be our Joan of Arc, not Lizzy
Borden.
Mrs. Clinton's tactics
have become so ridiculous
that her representatives
have even commented on
statements Barack Obama
made in kindergarten.
The Clinton machine's


entire blueprint for success
has collapsed. The more
mud that was slung Oba-
ma's way, the more he was
examined, and what the
Clinton's helped expose, to
their chagrin, was a decent
family man who possesses
character, principles and
values admirable traits
the Clintons can only look
upon with envy, as their
machine becomes a train
wreck.

Clinton implodes
as she exploits
EDITOR:
The Clinton campaign is
now discovering, as their
political machine implodes,
that when your own closet is
so crammed with skeletons,
it is best not to search any-
one else's.
Hillary, like Humpty
Dumpty, has fallen and all of
her money and all of her
man can't put poor Hillary
together again. And all of
America is better for it.
The chasm that has
formed in American.politics
is tearing our country apart
to the joy of the rest of the
world, who watch as a once-
admired nation is reduced
to the target of ridicule
while partisan bickering,
with its uncompromising,
egotistical stonewalling, has
brought America to its

Sarasota County Call Center at 941-861-5000 and
ask for Solid Waste Customer Service.
Sarasota County turns up
the tap on water violators
In response to worsening drought conditions,
Sarasota County is enacting new measures it
hopes will close the flood gates on the county's
heaviest water users. Beginning immediately,
citizens have three new ways to report water
violations. In addition, the county will begin posting
the names of the top water users on its web site at
scgov.net.
Consider it "tough love," said Sarasota County
Utilities Manager Tony Gipe, who acknowledges
that as funds for traditional enforcement dry up,
local governments are adopting more fluid methods
to encourage water conservation.
Currently, citizens can report water violations by
phone to the Sarasota County Call Center at 861-
5000. Now, they can also contact Sarasota County
Utilities Customer Service at 861-6790 and press 3
to immediately report a watering violation. They can
also e-mail violations to utilitybill@scgov.net.
"We are continuing neighborhood patrols with
county staff as well as an outside contractor," said
Gipe. "But a water emergency is problem for the
entire region, and we need everyone's cooperation
and participation to create real solutions."
Gipe believes that a direct telephone line to report
water violations will create faster response times for
enforcement officials. "When people call the Utilities
Customer Service line, this will be the first option
they hear," he said.
Gipe adds that names of the county's top
water users are requested on a regular basis
by media outlets. To view the list, which will be

BASKETBALL: INDIANS


WIN TWO IN TWO DAYS


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High School
boys basketball team with-
stood a 20-point fourth-
quarter barrage from Man-
atee High School Friday
night at Manatee to escape
with a 43-38 win. It was the
Indians' second win in as
many days.
Venice led by 13 at half-
time and extended their
lead to 17 points by the end
of the third quarter. The
Hurricanes came to life with
20 fourth-quarter points,
but it was too little, too late.
"Everybody that was in
scored and contributed
with rebounds and steals,"
Venice Head Coach Steve


Cavallaro said. "It was a good
team effort."
The Indians didn't dazzle
anybody with their offense,
but the .defense was solid.
Venice held Lemon Bay to
just one first-half field goal
Thursday night, and followed
that performance by allowing
just two Manatee points in
the third quarter. By the end
of three, the Hurricanes had
mustered just 18 points.
While Venice didn't put
up huge numbers on the sc-
oreboard, every player that
entered the game finished
with at least two points.
Brandon Wilkinson led the
team with 15, followed by
Tyler Christian with eight
and Kyle Jutras with seven.
Trey Burton finished with six.


Foul shots, however, were not
easy to come by.
The Indians made just
seven of 17 foul shots.
"I don't know what it was,"
Cavallaro said. "We have a lit-
tle bit of time now to work on
that."
Cavallaro thinks that there
is plenty to work on. Al-
though he attributed some of
his team's mistakes Friday
night to the fact that they had
played two nights in a row, he
did say "it was one of those
nights when I didn't think we
were all that sharp, it was a
step back a little bit."
With the win, Venice
moves to 8-1 and 4-1 in the
district. Theywon't play again
until after Christmas in the
CES Holiday Tournament at


the Manatee Civic Center
Dec. 27-29.

Mustangs throw


Indians again


TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

The scoreboard after the
Venice High School girls
soccer game Friday night
read 7-6 in favor of the
Indians.
But a little help from the
press box didn't fool any of
the fans that had already
begun filing out before the
final whistle. The Indians (9-
3-2, 5-2-1) fell to Lakewood
Ranch High School for the
second time this season in a
6-2 blow out. The Mustangs
once again showed why
*they are the No. 1 team in
the district.
"They executed very well,
they've got good speed and
they went right through our
defense," Venice Head
Coach Sheldon Chamber-
lain said. "They showed
they're a really great team
tonight."
Venice took the early lead
with a goal by Dana La-
Rocque off. an assist from
Emily Cremiscio in the 21st
minute. The 1-0 lead didn't
last long.
Lakewood Ranch got the
equalizer only seconds later
when Lakewood Ranch's
Lindsay Thompson drib-
bled right between two
Venice defenders and shot
for the- score. Thompson,
who scored her 100th varsi-
ty goal against the Indians
in their first matchup,,
shredded Venice for four
goals.
The second Thompson
goal was a foul shot in the
28th minute sandwiched
between two mpre Mustang
goals by Sarah Miller. The
score was 4-1 Lakewood


Ranch by halftime, and all of
the Mustangs' goals came in
a matter of seven minutes.
"Our girls worked hard,
but that speed in there, their
forwards have great speed,"
Chamberlain said. "If you
have a runner that can keep
up with [Thompson] you
play her, other than that you
need to put two players on
her. But then they have
other players, too. We were
sharp for a while but it
looked like the speed took


over."
The second half was
more of the same. Miller hit
an open Thompson for an
easy goal in the 54th min-
ute. Thompson scored ag-
ain in the 71st minute be-
fore Venice finally struck
again on a goal by Nellie
Donets in the 78th minute.
"I thought we had a bet-
ter chance," Chamberlain
said. "Our little dream. We
had everyone back and we
were hoping we would do
better, but there's always
tomorrow. We can look for-
ward to the district tourna-
ment and if we can get
through and beat Manatee
we can play [Lakewood
Ranch] again."
Venice had everyone
back that had been gone
with suspensions and in-
juries, but another player
was missing from the lineup
on defense. Ashley Kaiser
quit the team earlier this
week.
Whether or not it was
Kaiser's absence that hurt
the Venice defense remains
to be seen.. Every game is
different, but the Indians
did give up half as many
goals to the Mustangs in the
first game Nov. 29 even
without five players.
Chamberlain would not
elaborate on reasons for
Kaiser's decision.
The Indians get almost
two weeks off before taking
the field again Jan. 3 at
Riverdale High School.

Coach L leaves more than Basketball legacy at Venice High


BYTRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


Many, people will re-
member Wayne "Coach L"
Lechlitner for the 1973
Venice High School boys
basketball team that he led
to a district title. That was
just his first season as head
coach, and nobody has
done that since.
Lechlither, who passed
away Monday at the age of
69, coached and taught at
Venice High for 33 years be-
fore retiring in 2000. Aside
from boys basketball,. he
also coached girls basket-
ball and boys and girls ten-
nis.
He was the social studies
department head when cur-
rent boys basketball coach
and social studies teacher


Steve Cavallaro started at
Venice.
"He was a great guy,"
Cavallaro said. "He was
well-respected and well-
liked by absolutely every-
bddy."
He precededVenice High
Athletic Director Larry Sand-
burg, who served on Lech-
litner's staff as an assistant
basketball coach for two
years. Sandburg described
Coach L as "quiet" and "fun-
damental" in basketball, an
uncommon combination
among basketball coaches.
Lechlitner retired from
coaching in the early 1990s,
soon after his children grad-
uated.
He is survived by his wife
of 38 years, Megan, sister,
Carol Vigren and four
grandchildren, Kyle, Bran-


don, Isaac and Austin.
Lechlitner's two chil-
dren, Jennifer Herrold and
Kevin Lechlitner, both sur-
vived his economics class
in their senior years at Ven-
ice High.
* "Both Kevin and I had to
take his class to graduate,"
Herrold said. "It was inter-
esting."
Other former students
may remember him better
for his involvement with the
senior class each year. As
the senior class sponsor, he
was in charge of putting
together grad night to Walt
Disney World, the baccalau-
reate ceremony, the gradua-
tion ceremony, all the nec-
essary practices and every-
thing else down to senior
skip day.
"Skip day was just a day


that everybody went to the
beach," Lechlitner said. "Ev-
ery year they always threw
my dad in the water. It was
just fun, everybody respect-
ed him and he enjoyed hav-
ing a good time, too."
There will be a Celebra-
tion of Life service Feb. 21 at
Venice Presbyterian Church.
Donations can be made
to the Venice High School
foundation, located at 1
Indian Ave., Venice, FL,
34285 or to the Venice
Presbyterian Church Foun-
dation, located at 111 Fir-
enze Ave., Venice, FL 34285.

BY A. PLAYER
SPECIAL TO THE SUN

Thank you to moms,
dads, grandmas, grandpas,
aunts, uncles, brothers, sis-
ters and friends who drove
me to my games and prac-
tices.
Who cheered when I did
well, who patted me on the
back when I messed up.
Thank you for my many
coaches, who taught me
what they knew, shared
with me their hearts for the
sports I played. In the years


that passed, I value their
time and behavior more
than their knowledge.
Thank you, my team-
mates, for your efforts day
in and day out for our com-
mon goal. A lifelong lesson I
have learned: Never too
late, to call an old mate.
Thank you, linesmen,
refs, umps, scorekeepers
and announcers for your
hard work and best efforts.
I thank God for the
health and ability he pro-
vided for me. May I use the
gifts he gave me to make


sports and the community
better.
It has been five years since
I coached a team. The happy
eyes of the 10-year-old girls
basketball players or the
fierce determination of pro-
fessional athletes. They
both .warm your hearts
through the years that pass.
A privilege and honor for all
coaches.
Time brings understand-
ing, it is better to extend a
sincere hand to an oppo-
nent rather than trash talk.
It is better to make your


weakest teammate stronger
than to boast your ability.
But the message we need
to remember is to take this
sportsmanship to our life.
For our families, friends,
neighbors and co-workers.
They are our teammates for
life. So take our sports less-
ons and apply them for life.
Never boasting about our-
selves but ready to serve
and support these individu-
als we love. For they are our
teammates for life and our
sportsmanship in life lives
forever.

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


Volunteers needed
Sarasota County is fol-
lowing up its successful
summer seagrass survey
with a call for volunteers to
participate in its winter sur-
vey, which will run from
December through Feb-
ruary 2008.
The county began its
mapping program last win-
ter to provide supplemental
information to the South-
west Florida Water Manage-
ment District's existing sea-
grass mapping effort and
has since been asked by
Swiftmud to become the
model for other counties.
All program volunteers
for the winter seagrass sur-
vey must attend one of two
training classes, which con-
sist of a brief program over-
view and hands-on training
in the water.
The first session will be
held Saturday, Dec. 15, at
the KenThompson Parkway
pavilion, 1700 Ken Thomp-
son Parkway, Lido Key. The
second will take place
Saturday, Jan. 12, at Cedar
Point Environmental Park,
2300 Placida Road, Engle-
wood. Both training classes
will be held from 1-3 p.m.
Boaters attending the
training should bring swim-
wear and water shoes. Part-
icipants should have their
own global positioning sys-,
tems and Watercraft, but
Dominguez says those who
don't will be paired with
those that do.
For more "information,,
call 861-5000 and ask for
Amanda Dominguez in Wa-
ter Resources.

Beautification
wins award

Beautiful, the nation's lar-
gest volunteer-based com-
munity action and educa-
tion program. The organiza-
tion honored KSCB at its


national conference in
Washington, D.C., Dec. 6.
Established in 1953, Keep
America Beautiful has a net-
work of nearly 1,000 affili-
ates and partners. Sandra
Washington has led the
local Sarasota County affili-
ate for more than 20 years.
According to Washing-
ton, KSCB received the
award because of its ongo-
ing training schedule, its
active board, conducting an
annual litter index and cal-
culating a cost-benefit ratio.
For more information,
call 861-5000 and ask to
speak with Sandra Wash-
ington.

Backflow
testing program
Beginning in January
2008, Sarasota County Util-
ities customers who are
required to install backflow
preventer devices will be
able to enroll in an optional
testing program that may
make it more convenient
for them to comply with the
statewide backflow preven-
tion program.
The program will give
customers the' option of
contracting privately with a
licensed plumber to com-
plete the required annual
testing, or enrolling in a
county plan that uses licen-
sed contractors under a
competitive bid for their
services.
All service fees in the
optional testing program
will be applied in small,
equal monthly charges to
individual water bpls. The
cost for the program will
vary depending upon the
size of the backflow preven-
tion assembly. The typical
residential pipe size is
three-quarter inch and cost
$2.53 per month.
Backflow prevention de-
vices keep contaminated
water from entering public
drinking water through di-
rect cross-connections in
residential piping and other
sources of water. As of Jan-


uary 2007, Sarasota County
Utilities customers who also
use another source of water
on their property must
install a backflow preven-
tion device and have it test-
ed annually to ensure it is
working properly.
All of Sarasota County's
commercial water cus-
tomers must install a back-
flow preventer device at
their service connection or
at a location approved by
Sarasota County Utilities.
All non-metered fire line
connections to Sarasota
County's water system are
required to install at mini-
mum a double detector
check assembly.

vention button. The Web

tial and commercial re-

Community Housing Tr-

ment, people will be linked
with an array of services,
including homebuyer edu-
cation, credit counseling
and affordable loan prod-
ucts.
The orientations will be
held in Sarasota, Venice and

Nece' Dittrich
Nece' Dittrich passed .away
December 13th, 2007 at the age of
74, after a long illness from
emphysema. She was a resident of
Englewood, Florida, having,moved
here over a decade ago with her
husband, Ed Dittrich, who was the
love of her life. Ed passed away
over 2 years ago and she missed him
every day. A native Floridian, she
was born in Summerfield, Florida
and grew up in central Florida. She
lived most of her adult life in
Jacksonville, St Petersburg, Ocala
and Englewood. She loved the
ocean, and spent many hours
walking along Manastoa Beach.
Nece' had a restless and creative
energy. She loved people, never met
a stranger, and had the gift of gab.
She was a devoted homemaker to
her young children, sewing all of
her daughter's school clothes and
was well-known as an accomplished
seamstress. She created beautiful
works of art through her sewing,
English smocking, embroidery and
crocheting, which she gave away as
heirloom gifts to close friends and
family members. She kept a
beautiful home, where ever she
lived. After her children were
grown and she had married "her
Eddie", Nece' worked for many
years as an administrative assistant
for Marion Citrus County Mental
Health Center, a job in which she
excelled. During the same time, she
was awarded Avon's Presidents
Club for outstanding sales
achievement.
She was -very much loved and will
be missed by her children and their
families; Greg Bauknight of Spring
Hill, Freya Fuller of Venice, Kathy
Wayer of Marco Island, Diane
Bauknight of Asheville, North
Carolina, and Jeff Dittrich of
Monterey, California. She left
behind a sister that she loved very
much, Ellen Spegele of Casselberry,
Fla, and. had survived a beloved
sister that died a year ago, Rene
Lovell. Nece' had 14 grandchildren
and 4 great-grafidchildren. Her
daughters, Freya and Kathy, were
with her at the time of her death.
Among Nece's last words were, "Its
been wonderful!" According to her
wishes, a joyful and festive
celebration of her life will take
place Saturday, January 12th at
4:00 p.m. at her home. Please wear
bright clothing and bring a special
memory of Nece' to share. Those
wishing to make a contribution in
her name may do so to the Women's
Resource Center, 806 Pinebrook Rd,

The evolution of the


tr(


H-ermany is most
often credited
with being the site
of the earliest
Christmas trees. Trees in
Venice, Fl., circa 2007, gen-
erally do not resemble those
first trees.
First erected outside the
house in the 16th century,
Christmas trees were brought
indoors in the the 17th centu-
ry. Decorations in those early
RODRIGUES years were designed for the
children and included app-
h adorn a les, nuts, paper flowers and
pretzels, rather than the gllitz
ngsand and glitter most often seen in
Vengce the 21st century.
As the Christian holiday
Bach, has evolved over the years
so have the decorations.
Until the introduction of
electric lights for the trees,
real candles were often used
and often had disastrous
results. In Finland, a muse-
um at Turku showing what
life was like in the 1950s in
that area displays a Christ-
mas tree with real candles
during the holiday. The tree
ornaments are handmade,
some carved from wood
and some, like gingerbread
cookie men, baked in the
kitchen oven.
By the end of the 19th cen-
tury, a man named Wool-
worth imported some glass
balls for his chain of stores
in the United States and
Christmas trees sparkled like
never before.
Tree decorating continued
to evolve to the present day's
designer trees, collector trees,
theme trees and "green" of
environmentally friendly
trees. In areas like Venice, sea
shells and sharks teeth can be
put to good use on the family
Christmas tree as was done
on one of the trees shown
here.
Made by a newcomer to
the area, the ultimate Vene-
tian Christmas tree features
clear glass balls partially filled
with beach sand and tiny
sharks teeth, painted sea
shells collected at the Venice


Beach and a blue tree skirt to
carry out the theme of sea
and seashells.
Another tree displays orn-
aments collected on travels
around the globe, including
ornaments made each year
in honor of the White House
inWashington D.C. One tree
contains a massive collec-
tion of ornaments lovingly
assembled for years and
then carefully placed on the
tree during a week-long

project in which as many as
six or seven ornaments are
placed on each and every
tree branch.
The largest tree pictured
is one that Mr. Woolworth
would adore. It is filled with
today's version of those glass
balls he imported more than
a century ago.
With their decorations
filling every branch none is
a Charlie Brown tree al-
though many a tree looks
like that until its owner fills
it with the family collection
or the recently made or pur-
chased trimmings.
Tinsel is, or is not, added
last. Some will place a nativi-
ty scene or Christmas village
and train set beneath the tree,
at least until Saint Nicholas
fills the space with gifts.
Together, the trees shown
on this page represent a vari-
ety of area people celebrating
this special holiday in their
ownways but allwishing for a
Merry Christmas for all.
Just 367 days remain until
Christmas 2008.

Blah, blah, blah, blah news teezes.
Blah, blah, blah, blah smart-aleck
remarks. Blah, blah, blah, blah:
Britney's 16-year-old sister Is
pregnant. (Just when it looked like she
might be the normal one in the fami-
ly. I guess the good news is she isn't
also married to some loser.)
Lynne Spears parenting book
called off. (I don't know why. If there
can be a TV show called, "What Not to
Wear," there can be a parenting book
titled, "Screwing Your Kids Up for Fun
and Profit.")
Miss Puerto Rico" was pepper-
sprayed. (I never doubted it, I just did-


n't think it should qualify as a talent.)
Banks plan superfund to buy risky
debt. (That should get them back in
the black after the sub-prime crisis.)
Cruise's Nazi movie gets pushed
back. (Insert your own Scientology
joke here.)
Woods no longer spectacular, he
just keeps winning. (Yeah, in and of
itself, winning all the time is nothing
special.)
Vatican lashes out at godless
"Compass." (Why give a movie all that
free publicity (see next entry)) ...
"Virgin" birth stem cells may offer
tissue bank. (When there are serious
issues like this one to deal with?)
University to scrap relic of atomic
age. (It's the last remaining sign that


says, "Put your head between your
legs and kiss your butt goodbye.)
Ray back for more at Food
Network. (Someone please get this
woman on decaf immediately.)
Original KITT Trans-Am for sale
on eBay. (Before you whip out your
credit card, it's only fair to warn you
that it doesn't actually do most of the
stuff you saw on "Knight Rider."
However, William Daniels, the voice of
KITT, does come with it.)
Bush says Congress wasting time,
money. (That's a relief; I was afraid
they were working on something out-
side their job description.)

WORDS WORTH
HEARING







By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. Both of my ears have a
constant ringing sounds
which I' notice most at
night. My doctor tells me
there is no cure for it. Is
there anything I can take
which will help it go away?
A. Most of us have
experienced a temporary
ringing in the ears.
Sometimes referred to s head
noise, its medical -name is
tinnitus. Some 37 millions
adults suffer from it and for 7
million, the problem is so
severe they are incapacitated.
While tinnitus does not cause
hearing disorder, it does
accompany a decrease in
hearing and other ear
disorders such as pressure,
dizziness or unsteadiness. Its
causes have been found to
range from wax buildup in
the outer ear to more serious
disorders in the inner ear or
cochlea. Tinnitus originating
in the middle ear can be
cause by infections, allergies
or ear drum abnormalities.
Most commonly, tinnitus is
the result of prolonged
exposure to loud noise
without adequate hearing
protection and tinnitus is
often the first sign of a high
frequency hearing loss called
presbycusis which occurs
with advancing age. Because
tinnitus may be symptomatic
of a serious ear disorder, it is
important to have it evaluated
by an audiologist. If you or
someone you know suffers
from ringing in the ears,
contact the Audiologist at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. at
(941) 492-4327 in Venice or
at (941) 206-2136 in Port
Charlotte to schedule a
through evaluation.

!" According to an
Associated Press (AP)
analysis of statistics from
the Drug Enforcement
Administration (DEA), use of pain
medication has nearly doubled in
recent years. Between 1997 and 2005,
the amount of painkillers sold at retail
establishments rose 90 percent. During
the most recent year represented in the
data, more than 200,000 pounds of
codeine, morphine, oxycodone,
hydrocodone, and meperidine were
purchased at retail stores. This number
'breaks down to 300 milligrams of
painkiller for every person in this
country. These numbers are reflective of
a pain-management philosophy that
has been advocated for nearly three
decades. Chiropractic, on the other
hand, believes in controlling pain by
effectively addressing underlying
causes. Once the cause is removed, the
symptom of pain subsides.

YOUR TIMING


WON'T BE OFF
WHEN YOU INVEST REGULARLY.
If one of your worries is whether you're investing at the
right time, it shouldn't be. By investing a set amount of
money regularly, you establish a simple routine that can
help make your financial goals a reality.

In addition, investing regularly can:
I Make it possible to use market fluctuations
to your advantage
I Add potential growth and diversification
to your portfolio
I Keep your long-term financial goals in focus
Investing a set amount of money on a regular basis does not ensure a profit and does not protect
against loss in declining markets. Such a plan involves continual investment in securities
regardless of fluctuating price levels of such securities. You should consider your financial
ability to continue the purchases through periods of low price levels.
To learn how investing on a regular basis can help
you reach your financial goals, call or visit your local
financial advisor today.

FRESH AIR


6,000 miles and still going strong


PHOTO COURTESY OF MONTY ANDREWS
The Saturday Morning Walkabout group recently celebrated having logged a total of 6,000
miles.The group meets each Saturday at 8 a.m. at Volunteer Park, located along Gulf Drive
behind the Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice.The group then departs on a 2-1/2-
mile walk. The idea is to encourage members of the community to participate in health walks
in a relaxed setting, walking at their own pace, and receive incentives for their accomplish-
ments. New walkers are always welcome. Pets are welcome, too.

Keeping a promise for a favor granted


C athy Schockweiler had just received
some horrible news. Due to some
unfortunate experiences in life, she
was about to lose her home.
The main issue at the moment wasn't
about anything material, it was what she
planned to do with her six adult cats that
had been under her care for many years.
She had found a new place to stay, but
the owner didn't allow pets on the premis-
es. She immediately got on the phone, and
spoke with every shelter and veterinarian
office that she could find from Tampa to Ft.
Myers. Not one would take the cats. It was
August, commonly known to feline lovers
as "kitten season." The shelters were
stocked with an abundance of abandoned
kittens, and there was no room for cats of
more than 10 years of age. Adult cats are
much more difficult to adopt out than cud-
dly little kittens. Every person she spoke
with advised her that the best thing to do
would be to have them euthanized for a
substantial fee. Refusing to believe that this
was even a remote option for a moment,
she luckily dialed one last number one
that she will always remember.
It was 9 p.m. when Rick Kingston
answered the phone. A scared, desperate
voice was on the other end of the line. The
voice explained there were six cats that
needed a temporary home, and no one up
to this point would offer to take them.
Much to Schockweiler's surprise, .
Kingston quickly replied, "bring 'em over ~'
right now."
"It was such a relief after all those Cathy SchockA
frustrating phone calls that this man large amount o
immediately welcomed them," Schock- goodies. Belov
weiler said.
Rick and his wife, Chrissy, are the owners of Puffy Paws
Kitty Haven, a 2,800 square foot, no-kill cat shelter in
Englewood. They focus on providing a loving home,
where rescued cats and kittens waiting to be adopted can
live in a clean, cage-free environment. Not one of the 87
cats living in the home is under lockup. There are certain
ones with illnesses under quarantine, but other than that,
the home is a cat haven. And what's more impressive -
they all seemed to get along and blend into the environ-
ment quite well.
That warm August evening, when Schockweiler
dropped the cats off, she made the Kingstons a promise.
A promise to return the favor.

of items for the holiday season. Below, some of the haven residents explore the
w right, Chrissy and Rick Kingston are owners of the Englewood shelter.


Somehow.
Someday.
Last week, almost four months after their
initial meeting, Schockweiler showed up at
the Kingstons' front door once again.
This time, her arms and vehicle were
stocked with items that she had brought to
donate to the shelter. Christmas stockings
filled with more than 200 cat toys, endless
large bags of cat food and a "cat condo" tree
that took up almost half of the Kingstons'
living room, were some of the things she
brought over that afternoon. All of that
along with a check for $300 was her way of
saying "thank you" for the help that she had
received. Rick estimates that in total, the
gifts must have cost "well over a thousand
dollars."
"She (Schockweiler) said it's less than
that but look at all this stuff-- it can't
possibly be," Kingston said.
Schockweiler said she planned on drop-
ping off the big donation just before the
holidays.
"It's the season to give, and I wanted to
show my appreciation by donating to their
wonderful cause," Schockweiler said.
"There isn't another shelter out there that I
can find that provides the kind of help that
they provide," she added.
Puffy Paws Kitty Haven has 31 cats avail-
able for adoption. Check out their Web site
at puffypawskittyhaven.com to view the
animals. They also have posted a wish list,
volunteer opportunities and information on
how to donate online or by mail.

Six Steps to Success


l 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.


3o. 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!


U Through The Sun Classified, you'll send the
news of your s' toth6usands o4 potential buyers.
So, get out your change box and get ready to sell!

. Gizmo, the cat, is a
beautiful 10-year-old
girl whose owner
just died.
The owner's son, who just
happens to be a veteri-
narian, lives out of state
and requested Gizmo be
euthanized.

Fortunately, the local vet-
erinarian's staff thought
differently and called
EARS for help. What
makes this situation
unique is that Gizmo is
diabetic and requires
daily insulin injections.
Because of this, she will
be difficult to place. We
need two things here:
One is underwriting to
help pay for Gizmo's
ongoing medical bills.
Second, is a foster or per-
manent home for this lit-
tle girl.

Gizmo's situation under-
scores a difference in atti-
tudes. Her owner's cal-
lous son considered her
to be expendable. A
Sarasota County veteri-
narian believes she
deserves a chance to live
EARS does too. EARS is
all about life.

PRICE!!! or several someones -
