Paperless paying


BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

Two years ago I still had some
trepidation about paying my bills
online. You know the concerns
about confidentiality, identity theft,
the cyberspace thing, etc. I finally
decided to test the waters and give it
a try. Why did I wait so long?
I'm not sure how the U.S. Postal
Service feels about online bill pay-
ing, but the environmental impact
is significant.
A recent study by Javelin Strategy
and Research indicates if all U.S.
households paid their bills online, it
would save more than 16 million


trees, reduce fuel consumption
enough to power a city the size of
San Francisco, reduce greenhouse
gases equivalent to taking 355,000
cars off the road and reduce toxic
wastewater by 13 billion gallons.
Now consider these savings
would recur each year.
Financial institutions are focused
on educating customers and busi-
nesses to assess their banking pro-
cedures and look into receiving and
paying bills on line. An easy way to
start is by paying one or two bills
online and getting comfortable with
the process. Once settled in, the
environmental savings will follow.
The planet it's worth saving.


SUN FILE GRAPHIC
Paying bills online is convenient
and also helps the environment.

Economic Development Task Force: Is Venice open for business?


The city's Economic Development Task
Force convenes and asks some pointed
questions.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Members of the city's
new Economic Develop-
ment Task Force met for
the first time May 21 in
council chambers.
The meeting was a
combination feeling out
and brainstorming session
for members hand-picked
by Mayor Ed Martin.
The mayor gave the
group no specific direc-
tion, instead opting to let
the task force determine
its own.
"When eating an ele-
phant, where does one
begin?" Martin asked.
"We're looking for ways
to be more proactive (re-
garding economic devel-
opment), rather than just
hoping it happens. The
reason we want to get you
together is to learn some
things. You can go in any
direction you like."
Hear ye
The task force was ap-
proved by council May 13.
Members are Paula Du-
mas, Teri Hansen, Joan
McGill, Raymond Modjes-
ki, Lee Thacker, Mack Wil-
cox Jr. and Trent Young.
The first order of busi-
ness was to query the
mayor about his intent in
creating the body.
"Is there a will to have
new businesses come (to
Venice) or current busi-
nesses grow?" asked Teri
Hansen, CEO of Gulf Coast
Community Foundation
ofVenice.
"I think there is, in-
deed," Martin said. "Some
people think we were very
dependent on residential
construction and to some
extent tourism. I think the
community would wel-
come a range of business-
es. We've talked about
encouraging eco-tourism.
The city is happy to have
Tervis Tumbler and PGT
and (others) ... we are
hoping that will attract
additional activities" on
Laurel Road and in the
industrial park.
"We're interested in
MainStreet activities (and
things like) addressing
parking because there is
not a unified opinion in
the public on this," as well
as tax policies.

Venice-bomrn TrentYoung,
owner of Captain's Land-
ing, a retail store in down-
town Venice, reflected on
his business experience.
"Our mission is to look
at how to get people in the
downtown," he said. "The
perception is this town
doesn't want that."
Martin pointed to three
hotel approvals by city
council in recent months
as evidence council is not
anti-business.
Young said he was
aware of the hotel projects
- and the permitting diffi-
culties and political scruti-
ny they underwent.
"I don't know how many
other Tom, Dick and Har-
rys want to pursue a three-
to-five-year project here,"
he said.
Mack Wilcox question-
ed whether the city has
"enough of the kind of
zoning that our popula-
tion requires."
Dichotomy
Task force Chair Paula
Dumas, also incoming
chair of the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce,
said the group's first task
should be to define eco-
nomic vitality, and then to
look at how business is
viewed in the community.
"We have this dichoto-
my among residents and
business" that ought to be
explored, she said, "and if
we have a role in that if
there is a communication
breakdown over what has
happened over the past
three to five years."
Wilcox described it as
confusion in the commu-
nity between "business"
and "growth."
People think "business
means growth. That's not
the case," Wilcox said.
"They inextricably inter-
twine 'development' and
'construction' with busi-
ness."


Martin said his biggest
concern is "a lot of com-
munities have strangled
themselves on the wrong
kind of growth, with strip
malls and traffic. We can
have moderate growth of
housing, and business
growth."
Task force members al-
so had an impromptu mes-
sage of their own regarding
the airport get the mas-
ter plan done.
"The last wound the
business community is
licking, if you will, is the
airport project," Dumas
said. "If the (Mike) Miller
projects and airport pro-
jects can't go through, then
what will go through?
What is the vision for busi-
ness if there are stopgap
measures all along the
way?"
It was appropriate terri-
tory for the task force,
Martin agreed.
He also had this bit of
Sunshine Law advice for
task force members: "Oth-

Hot air isn't creating any local jobs


BY BOB RIGBY
GUEST COLUMNIST

There's one thing I
agree with Barack Obama
about, and that's change,
in Sarasota, Tallahassee
and Washington, from the
status quo lobbyists
who protect their clients'
interests and keep money
flowing in their direction.
Sarasota County asked
voters to free up $300 mil-
lion to jump start the local
economy but didn't ex-
plain what work that
money would include or, if
money is needed down
the road, where it will
come from.
Further, at which end of
the county will most of the
work will be performed? Is
the county planning on
construction in mid-
county to accommodate
North Port?
Here comes the rub for
me. I'm sitting here on
three United States pat-
ents that have been ap-
proved by the Environ-
mental Protection Agency
and Florida Department
of Environmental Protec-


tion for their environmen-
tal benefits. The operative
word here is "sitting."
Nothing has been done by
our politicians to use these
technologies to clean up
our waters.
I received a letter from
the FDEP 20 years after the
testing had been complet-
ed on my machines, final-
ly advising the machines
are an effective tool for
removing stormwater run-
off.
The economy of the
United States is in the
tank; certainly South Flor-
ida is experiencing a de-
pression, with unemploy-
ment at record levels and
families moving away in
droves, taking what taxes
they have paid with them.
The state's revenue is hem-
orrhaging.
Yet, my street cleaners,
which Lockheed Martin
told the state would save
$700 million to $800 mil-
lion and do a much better
job of removing phospho-
rus, nitrogen and mercury
from street surface run-
off, has been ignored. Man-
ufacturing these machines

in Sarasota County could
employee 1,000 people.
My red-tide cure sits
while lobbyists protect a
few highly paid research-
ers' jobs at marine labora-
tories; they don't want to
kill the goose that laid the
golden egg. Another 500
jobs could be added in
Sarasota County by start-
ing the red-tide program
to kill the organism.
Thousands of tourist
who came to Florida to
enjoy our beaches and got
hit with red tide come
back no more.
How many candidates
currently running for the
Florida House or Senate
have mentioned their plans
to put people back to
work? What jobs are they
offering to working fami-
lies?
Families in Sarasota and
Charlotte counties are des-
perately scratching around
to make a living. The school
board is laying off scores of
teachers due to falling en-
rollment. Foreclosures are
at an all-time high.
PGT Industries has been
a backbone of employment

pet monkey saw a bunch

Our ship of state is sink-
ing in the cost of energy
and we also refuse to let go
of:
No more drilling for oil.
No hydro-electric con-


for Sarasota County, but
how many meetings have
been held with it by county
and state officials to offer
help to prevent a further
loss of jobs?
It's time the voters ask
these candidates some
hard questions concern-
ing their plans to employ-
ee these families. I don't
think we are anywhere
near a turnaround in our
economy or employment.
There are opportunities
right under our noses that
can be used to employ
people, and my technolo-
gies are just waiting for an
honest elected official to
stand up and start the ball
rolling to employ workers
before the local economy
gets any worse.
It takes action, and not
the same old campaign
talk without saying any-
thing about creating jobs.
It's important this time to
make change that counts,
that puts families back to
work.
At least try.

ing time with family and
friends.

POLICE BEAT


Cocaine bust at motel
On May21 at 10:42 p.m.
a Venice Police Depart-
ment patrol officer ob-
served a black Pontiac
parked in the Motel 6
parking lot. The vehicle
was occupied by two
males and was along the
south perimeter bordering
the Grove Terrace public
housing complex.
A registration check of
the vehicle showed it was
owned by a female and
neither the two males nor
the female was registered
at the motel. One of the
males, Isaac Cohen, 25,
200 block Tea Olive Ter-
race, Valrico, Fla., said he
was waiting for a friend,
Angelina, and that she
owned the vehicle. As this
interview continued the
story became less believ-
able.
Another officer inter-
viewed Steven Minton, 45,
8000 block N. Rome Ave.,
Tampa, Fla., the other
occupant. Their accounts
conflicted with each other.
Minton admitted that the


female was at Motel 6 for
sex and he is sort of a
"bodyguard" for her.
Due to their conflicting
stories and indications that
they were there in relation
to prostitution activity,
Cohen and Minton were
placed under arrest for loi-
tering and prowling. As
Cohen was being arrested
he admitted to having
drugs in his pocket. A small
wrapper containing 0.62
grams of cocaine was
found in his pocket, and he
was charged with posses-
sion of cocaine.
False name,
real arrest
On May 21, a Venice
police officer conducted a
traffic stop on a pickup
truck displaying an un-
readable tag. The driver,
Gary McLeod, 43, 13000
block MJ Road, Myakka
City, Fla., gave his name as
Jamie Edward Jones with a
birth date of Oct. 17, 1974.
He said he had a license
out of Oklahoma.
When the information


he gave could not be
found in any of the data
banks, McLeod admitted
lying and stated his real
name after he was advised
of his Miranda warning.
During a search of the
vehicle a 9-inch-long knife
was found concealed next
to the driver's seat.
A search of McLeod's
real name confirmed that
his driver license was can-
celed and he had active
Sarasota County warrants
for his arrest. He was
arrested for driving while
license suspended-habit-
ual traffic offender, giving
a false name to law
enforcement and posses-
sion of a concealed wea-
pon by a convicted felon.
Busted-window bust
On May 22 at 2:58 a.m.,
a Venice police officer
responded to a report of a
disturbance at 109 E. Alba
St.
The victim said that an
acquaintance, Robert Bur-
gess, 27, 100 block Ginger
Road, Venice, had poked


her in the eye with his fin-
ger during an argument.
Burgess was located, in-
toxicated, in the residence
and arrested for battery.
During the booking
procedure Burgess was un-
cooperative and smashed
his head into the rear win-
dow of the Venice police
vehicle, breaking it. He
was taken to the hospital
and later booked into the
South County Jail and
additionally charged with
criminal mischief to the
police vehicle.

Venice High juniors honored for efforts


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER
As a means of recognizing
outstanding llth-grade stu-
dents and introducing them to
colleges as they plan for their
future, Venice High School held
a recognition breakfast and
Junior Book Awards Wednesday.
LaShawn Houston, assistant
principal, said the event gives
the school an opportunity to
acknowledge its junior leaders
who have earned a high grade
point average and excel in out-
standing leadership qualities
and academic achievement.
Houston spoke to the hon-
orees and their parents at the
10th annual awards event.
"You are going to be our lead-
ers next year and we will look to
you as models," she said.
She referred to the book "212
Degrees," by S.L. Parker, and
explained its meaning in refer-
ence to the students' reach for
success.
"This outstanding motivation-
al book is about going the extra
mile. At 211 degrees, water is hot,
and at 212 degrees it is steaming.

Graduation
caps year for
Pine View
School

Chorale
BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT
A season that included
performing at Carnegie
Hall in New York City
winds down with gradua-
tion concerts for the Pine
View School Chorale.
Eighth-graders of the
school will be entertained
by the chorale on May 27,
and seniors will have the
same experience on June 1
at the Van Wezel Perform-
ing Arts Center in Sarasota.
The Carnegie Hall con-
cert in April was presented
by 51 members of the
chorale. They paid their
expenses with a series of
fundraising events during
the school year.
In previous years, the
11-year-old organization
performed in Coventry,
Edinborough and York, in
Great Britain, nationally,
and locally, at the Ringling
Museum.
Loisanne Robins, direc-
tor and founder, said that
the chorale has been rec-
ognized in Europe and the
United States. In 2004, it
performed at the presiden-
tial inauguration in Wash-
ington. It won first place in
the mixed choir division of
the National Inauguration
Festival that year.
Seventy-five students
take part in chorale activi-
ties, including community

complete oral




history of circus


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice Area Middle
School students have
produced a one-hour
oral history about the
days when the Greatest
Show on Earth wintered in
Venice.
Backed by a $3,000 grant
from the Florida Humanities
Council, the State Program of
the National Endowment for
the Humanities, the video


resulted from a partnership
that included oral history expert
Mark Greenberg, educators
Barbara Woody and Dr. Irene
Schmidt (principal) of VAMS
and coordinator Betty Intag-
liata, who, as president of the
Venice Area Historical Society,
prepared the grant application
and then oversaw the project
from grant writing to the final
report, which is due in June.
Students in Woody's
advanced history class, men-
tored by volunteers from the


Clown Jackie LeClaire with mentor Brian Heverin of the oral history pro-
ject concerning the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus days in
Venice.


historical society, video-taped
interviews with former per-
formers of the Ringling Bros.
and Barnum & Bailey Circus,
which wintered in Venice from
1959 to 1992. The performers
included Tito Gaona, Sigrid
Gebel, Tina Gebel-DelMoral,
Jackie LeClaire, Chuck Sidlow,
Dolly Jacobs, Pedro Reis and
Keith Greene.
Performers
Gaona, a Venice native, is a
world-famous aerialist who
starred with the Ringling show
for 17 years. Today he runs cir-
cus arts camps in Venice and in
Massachusetts.
Gebel, the widow of Gunther
Gebel-Williams who was con-
sidered the greatest animal
trainer of all time, performed a
Liberty Horse act with the cir-
cus for many years.
Gebel-DelMoral, who grew
up in the circus, performed an
aerial ballet and had several
animal acts, working with bears,
dogs and tigers.
LeClaire's father was a clown
with the Ringling show. An aeri-
alist as well as a Ringling clown,
LeClaire also was Cornel Wilde's
double on the flying trapeze in
the film, "The Greatest Show on
Earth," which was filmed on
location in Sarasota.
In January, LeClaire spoke to
historical society meeting about
his years in the circus. He was
one of five clowns to perform
with an American circus in the
former Soviet Union. He also
performed with the European
troupe of the Ringling circus
organization. The Ringling cir-
cus dubbed him "The Children's
Clown." He was inducted into
the International Clown Hall of
Fame in 1996.
Sidlow was a 1978 graduate

Christian Barone.


of Clown College in Venice and
performed with the Ringling
show for 18 years. Today, he
directs Laughter Unlimited, an
outreach program of Circus
Sarasota.
"It was wonderful," Sidlow
said. "They were really prepared
and were as professional as any
interviewers we have had over
the years. They did their home-
work and it was really comfort-
able.
"Because we have done so
many interviews over the years,
working with these kids was
refreshing. They were so hungry
to learn and for us it was a dou-
ble giveback because we could
give them their interview and
also maybe inspire them to con-
tinue their studies and to
become journalists or whatever
else they wanted to become."
Jacobs, daughter of Master
Clown Lou Jacobs, with her hus-


band Pedro Reis, founded Cir-
cus Sarasota. A world-famous
aerialist, she performed with
the Ringling show for 18 years.
Still performing, she starred in
the 2008 edition of Circus
Sarasota.
"They asked some wonderful
questions," she said. "It made us
think about what we do and
why we do it and how we do
what we do."
Reis, from South Africa where
he learned to be an aerialist in a
program at the YMCA, is the
current CEO of Circus Sarasota.
He came by train to Venice in
1984 as a Ringling performer.
Reis and Jacobs met on the
Ringling show and have been
together for 20 years, he said.
"We really had a great time,"
Reis said. "It is wonderful that
there is a group in the historical

We Care Manatee wins fundraising contest

FROM THE CFSC .&- W II E -. '


WWSB ABC7 called in
late March asking the
Community Foundation of
Sarasota County to recom-
mend three charities for the
station to include in their
local piece of Oprah's Big
Give national fundraising
promotion. The station was
prepared to give a bonus
check of $10,000 to one
small, Southwest Florida
human service agency that
succeeded in raising the
most money by April 16.
The idea was to give them
an opportunity to leverage
that money into something
much bigger, while they
stretched themselves by
building a donor base and
gained much greater visi-
bility in the community.
The Community Foun-
dation staff suggested We
Care Manatee, which pro-
vides free specialty med-
ical care to the uninsured;
Joining Our Youth (JOY), a
new, all-volunteer group
that helps teens that are
"aged out" out of the foster
care system at age 18; and
Mothers Helping Mothers,
which donates baby and
school supplies and other
support to needy families.
Each is a real, "feet on the
ground" human service
agency that does remark-
able work with little or no
staff, infrastructure or
marketing. The Communi-
ty Foundation also volun-
teered to be the promo-
tion's fiscal agent at no
cost, which meant collect-
ing the tax-deductible
donations; keeping track of
each agency's fundraising
tally; and promoting the
campaign on its Web site,
in a newspaper ad and with
its donor advisors, board of
directors and friends.
Now, just a month later,
the three charities have
each raised more money
than they ever dreamed of.
They've benefitted from
the free public relations
campaign of a lifetime -

covered that our communi-
ty is indeed among the
most generous and giving
in the country. Even in this
time of economic recession
and hardship, our neigh-
bors responded with open
hearts to the human service
needs provided so well by
these little organizations.
Thanks to the Com-
munity Foundation's own
family of donors (who
contributed almost $36,000
overall) and the hard work
of the volunteers and sup-
porters who really em-
braced the competition on
behalf of their favorite
organization, The Big Give
on the Suncoast brought
in a whopping $77,770.82!
Added to that total is the
$10,000 bonus prize from
Oprah and ABC7.
And to further add to
the excitement, the Com-
munity Foundation con-
tributed two $5,000 grants

We Care Manatee edged
out Mothers Helping Moth-

organizations are truly Big
Winners. As We Care Man-
atee's Interim Executive
Director John Howard said,
"To have this happen is so
wonderful financially be-
cause we depend upon
donations for over 60 per-
cent of our budget...but
more importantly, for all
three charities the publici-
ty has been of immeasur-
able value." JOY's Tish

of their foster homes with
bicycles and bus passes, as


well as new apartment set-
ups and extra mentoring.

SUN NEWSPAPERS


BY JACK MALLINGER
GUEST COLUMNIST

Friday, May 2, was an
evening of great emotion
as the Jewish Center of
Venice held its first Yom
HaShoah (Holocaust Re-
membrance Day) service.
Yom HaShoah is a day of
commemoration for the
approximate 6 million
Jews who perished in the
Holocaust. "The Holo-
caust" is the term general-
ly used to describe the
genocide of millions of
European Jews during
World War II, as part of a
program of deliberate ex-
termination planned and
executed by Germany's
Nazi regime led by Adolf
Hitler.
In Israel, Yom HaShoah
is a national memorial day
that began in 1959 when it
was signed into law by
David Ben-Gurion, prime
minister of Israel.
Prior to the usual Shab-
bat service, the congrega-
tion gathered in JCV's
Memorial Garden (a beau-
tiful cemetery in a natural
setting). Led by Rabbi Ann
White and Cantor Marci
Vitkus, the congregation
gathered around a memo-
rial commemorating the
loss of the 6 million Jews
who perished in the nu-
merous Nazi death camps,
each camp designated by a
plaque.
After a very moving ser-
vice, the congregation
marched back to the syna-

JCV's Holocaust survivors, from left, Josh Greenspan, Else
Dreels, Edith Eisenberg, Charlotte Foster and Pieter
Kohnstam, participated in the Yom HaShoah, or Holocaust


Remembrance Day, service.

ly from Susice in the former
Czechoslovakia.

gogue moving very slowly
in a single file to the beat of
a drum. The procession
was symbolic of the horrif-
ic death marches to the gas
chambers. Before reenter-
ing the synagogue, congre-
gants performed the ritual
of washing of the hands,
washing away the death
that had surrounded
them.
Once inside, the con-
gregation proceeded with
its usual Shabbat service.
The service, however,

usual scrolls, a very special
torah was placed on the
Bimah (the elevated plat-
form on which the torah is
read). This torah is referred
to by the congregation as
the Holocaust torah. It was
originally written in the
very early 1800s and came
from a synagogue in the
town of Susice, Czechoslo-
vakia, about 100 miles
southwest of Prague.
All of the Jews of Susice
were sent to the concen-
tration camp Terezien-
stadt. Of the roughly 130
Jews from Susice, only 10
returned home. Sadly, of
the 140,000 Jews who
arrived at Terezienstadt,
120,000 were killed.
Our Holocaust torah
was part of the Nazi booty.
As they looted and dese-
crated the torahs of many
synagogues, they took gold
and silver ornaments, vest-
ments, pictures, books
and manuscripts from the
synagogues of Bohemia,
Moravia and Slovakia, all
areas of the present-day
Czech Republic. The Nazis

race they were attempting
to exterminate.
The task of arranging
and cataloging these items
was assigned to Jews be-
fore they were shipped off
for extermination. Among
the treasures they gath-
ered was a huge number of
torahs the JCV's being
one of them.
When the war ended,
many of these treasures
remained in warehouses
in Prague. The torahs
themselves laid piled in
the no-longer used syna-
gogue. The original han-
dling and the long period
of storage had taken its toll
on the torahs and many
were damaged beyond re-
pair. In 1963 Eric Estorick,
a prominent London art
dealer, was able to arrange
for the scrolls to be ac-
quired by Ralph Yablon, a
London businessman and
philanthropist. The torah
was finally presented to
the JCV in October 1989 by
Karl and Lilly Ebner, in
honor of their 45th wed-
ding anniversary.

from further deteriora-
tion) was placed on the altar
and the congregation form-
ed a procession and
touched it as they passed
by, seeing evidence of the
desecration. A feeling of
anguish fell on all who
passed by this torah be-
cause of the realization
that all the people who
used this holy scroll prior
to World War II had been
herded up like cattle and
led to the Nazi death
camps. This torah is a lega-
cy from the Jewish people
of Susice who lost their
lives during the Holocaust.
Destined by the Nazis for
destruction, this torah sur-
vives at our Jewish Center
as a binding link with our
heritage. It perpetuates
the memory of the people
of Susice and represents
the continuity of our faith.
The service was even
more meaningful because
of the inclusion of five
members of the Jewish
Center of Venice who are
Holocaust survivors: Else
Dreels, Edith Eisenberg,
Charlotte Foster, Josh Green-
span and Pieter Kohnstam.
It has been 63 years
since World War II and the


last of the death camps lib-
erated. As the years pass
by, fewer and fewer sur-
vivors remain with us. We
must be sure history prop-
erly records and remem-
bers these atrocities to
ensure that they cannot
happen again. Globally, the
whole world must never
forget the Holocaust. Yes, it
is a fact that the Nazis were
attempting the genocide of
the Jews in what they called
the "Final Solution to the
Jewish Question"; however,
Jews were not their only vic-
tims.
Other groups were per-
secuted and killed by the
regime, including the
Romani Soviets, particu-
larly prisoners of war; eth-
nic Poles; other Slavic peo-
ple; the disabled; gay men;
and political and religious
dissidents, such as social-
ists, communists and Je-
hovah's witnesses. Taking
into account all the vic-
tims of Nazi persecution,
the death toll rises consid-
erably: estimates generally
place the total number of
victims at 9 million to 11
million.
Together, the people of
the world must always
remember.


'" Chiropractors who
T 1| utilize what is known as
the Koren Specific
Technique make adjustments
to joints with a tool that
eliminates the need for heavy
manipulation. This softer form
of adjustment, which is ideal for
infants and elderly patients, is
made possible by an FDA-approved
adjusting tool known as the
ArthroStim. This handheld
instrument delivers precise, low-force
adjustments with a frequency of 12-14
light taps per second. This frequency,
which is known as the Schuman
resonance, is often referred to as the
earth's "heartbeat" because it is the
planet's background base
frequency. As such, it is thought to
be a healing frequency that
optimizes the ArthroStim's
ability to positively affect the
body's ability to process the
adjustment.

REAL ESTATE/CLASSIFIED


Chestnut Creek home listed for sale


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

P alladian windows, columns
and professional landscaping
add a touch of formality to an
Italian-inspired home in the
Manors of Chestnut Creek. It
was recently listed for sale by
Re/Max Alliance Group Realtor
Gae Stewart.
Built in 1999, the home in-
cludes upgrades such as tray
ceilings, a tiled foyer, fireplace
and large screened lanai with
hot tub spa. The home is pre-
wired for a surround-sound sys-
tem.
The master suite, in addition
to his and her closets, has a gar-
den tub in the bath plus dual
sinks and separate shower. Win-
dow treatments in the master
bedroom include valences and
vertical blinds. Two additional


bedrooms and the second bath
are located on the opposite side
of the split-plan house.
Carpetingand tile used through-
out the house is a neutral shade
of pale beige.
Family room built-ins include
a swivel pullout that would hold
a larger TV plus other shelves
and cabinets made to fill one
end wall of the room. Located
just off the kitchen, that room is
a generous 15.6 feet by 18 feet
and has sliding doors opening to
the lanai.
The kitchen includes a count-
er between family room and
kitchen, facilitating serving and
clean-up for both the family
room and the nearby living
room, in this open-plan house.
There is a built-in lazy Susan in
the kitchen's island. Both the is-
land and the counters are cov-
ered with a hard-surface materi-


al. A separate formal dining
room is at the front of the house,
separated from the entrance
foyer area by a pillar.
A well provides irrigation
water for the landscaping that
has matured to both frame the
house and provide privacy
where needed.
Listed for $329,900, the house
is at 1235 Whitney. From Center
Road, drive into Chestnut Creek.
Continue until you reach the
lake. If you turn left, follow the
road around the lake and turn
left on Deardon and then right
onto Whitney. If you go right at

Plan ahead for 'Man overboard!'


T his issue of
WaterLine took on
a theme of its own
accord man over-
board. It wasn't planned
-like life -threatening
boating accidents, it
just happened. A press
release from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commis-
sion crossed my desk
proclaiming May 17-23
as National Safe Boat-
ing Week in Florida and
I toyed with the idea of
writing about it. Then,
Bill Hempel wrote,
"Once overboard, it's
tough to re-enter" (see
page 4) and Tom
Johnson sent in the first
part of a three-part
column about his
harrowing experience
in the water (page 7).
So, here's some infor-
mation that may make
you sit up and take
notice and hopefully be
safe on the water.
The FWC reported 77
boating fatalities during
2007. This report led to
Gov. Charlie Crist and
Florida's cabinet mem-
bers to pass a resolution
proclaiming May 17-23
as National Safe Boating
Week in Florida. The
FWC is using this event
to announce the kickoff
of the "Wear it Florida"
campaign, which is
aimed at encouraging
boaters of all ages to
wear a life jacket while
boating.
"Drowning is the
leading cause of death in
boating accidents, and
there's an easy fix -
wear a life jacket," said
Lt. Ed Cates of the FWC's
Division of Law Enforce-
ment. "There are several
styles of life jackets
available that won't
interfere with your
boating experience and


may save your life."
We know that wearing
a life jacket should be a
no-brainer, especially if
the weather is on the
rough side, but the
reality is that we don't
wear them. They're
bulky, hot, get in the
way and are generally
uncool. After all, we're
experienced boaters,
macho to the max,
aren't we? Life jackets
are for children, the
inexperienced and
sissies or are they? I'll
bet most of you keep
your life jackets stowed
in a locker under a pile
of junk and haven't had
them out in the open
and readily accessible
in ages. I'll even wager
that most of you have
never donned one
when casually boating.
Who needs a life jacket
when we could stand
up in most of the places
we fish? Tom Johnson
can answer that ques-
tion for you.
Today, there are a
variety of life jacket styles
that don't restrict move-
ment, aren't bulky and
are hardly noticeable
when worn, so there's
really no reason to not
wear them. Check out
your boating and fishing
catalogs or go online to
see the latest lifesaving
styles. Some are worn
like suspenders and
either manually or

Life jackets can come in the form of a comfortable, lightweight belt pack.


automatically inflate.
Others are worn around
the waist like a belt or
small fanny pack They're
lightweight, comfortable,
approved by the United
States Coast Guard and
reliable.
A handy rescue
product, the Mustang
Survival Rescue Stick, is
a floatation device that
can be thrown in a man
overboard situation and
automatically inflates
after contact with the
water. It's small and can
be stowed easily, so it's
quickly accessible.
Life jackets are like
seat belts in automobiles
- if wom, they will save
lives. Unfortunately,
there are those among
us who wear neither. Not
convinced yet? Here are
some statistics from the


FWC's 2007 Horida
BoatingAccident
Statistical Report:
There were 668 total
reportable boating
accidents in 2007.
38 percent of the fatal
accidents were falls
overboard (25 accidents
with 26 victims)
56 percent of the
fatal accidents were in
vessels less then 17 feet
in length.
The leading cause of
death in fatal boating
accidents was drowning
(55percent).
The deadliest


month in 2007 was
March with 12 fatali-
ties. May and June
followed, with 9 each.
48 percent of the fatal
accidents occurred
between the hours of 12
p.m. and 8 p.m.
90 percent of the
victims of fatal boating
accidents were males
(69).
70 percent of the
Operators involved in
reportable boating
accidents had no formal
boater education.
Stay save and stay
alive.

Once overboard, it's tough to re-enter


Coast Guard
statistics show
that once over-
board there is an 88-
percent probability you
will drown. Think
about that scary
statistic the next time
you jump from your
boat to take a swim or
inspect its bottom. Any
time you leave a
perfectly good boat to
enter the water you
should first put on a
life jacket. With or
without a life jacket,
you still place yourself
in harm's way. Here are
a few tips to help you
beat the odds:
Many people have
drowned because they
underestimated the

Wednesday, May 14.
But I met the Grim
Reaper face-to-face. It
was 6:30 am. when I
launched from the
Charlotte Beach Com-
plex. I was alone in my
little 13-foot Gheenoe
with its 6-hp Tohatsu
motor. The winds were
light and smelled of the turning point in my

cat's-paws had become
full-fledged white caps.
I am not completely
certain about the next
set of events, so bear
with me. I was cutting
up some bait pieces on
the console in front of
me when a huge wave
swept over the gunnels
near the stern. I
described it as a "rogue
wave" to the Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commis-
sion, but in retrospect,
I am not so sure. Why?
Because another wall
of water hit the boat
almost immediately
and knocked my 220-
pound load off the
swivel seat.
I only had time to let
out a scream and grab
my life vest off the seat
before the Gheenoe
flipped over. I toppled
into the water, not
knowing that the
scariest part was yet to
come. I felt myself
being pulled down-
ward. The anchor line
tangled around my
right leg. I don't
actually know how
deep this spot was
(maybe 10 feet) but it
was deep enough for


me to see my life pass
in front of my eyes.
I was beating my legs
frantically and sudden-
ly the rope let go. I
floated to the surface
spitting and coughing,
but physically
unharmed. Later, I
discovered the anchor
rope had snapped off
the swivel holding it to
the boat. That in turn
released its wrapped
tension around my
ankle. And probably
saved my life.
The boat was floating
hull up. I grabbed the
center groove with my
left arm to brace myself
and reached for the life
vest floating next to me.
As I tried to bring it


over my right shoulder,
something tugged it
away and I felt a jagged
pain near my elbow.
The line from one of
my rods had tangled
the vest straps. And I
unwittingly planted the
dangling hook an inch
deep into the flesh on
my arm. I could feel the
rod brushing against
the back of my legs.
Now I started getting
worried. I am a good
swimmer. The water
was fairly warm. With
the life vest on, I believe
I possibly could have
made it to land, or at
least gotten into a
floating position that
would not drain my
energy as I waited for


help. But for now, I had
to be satisfied clutching
the outside of the boat,
resting one arm on the
vest and treading water.
Treading water takes
a lot of energy, especial-
ly when errant waves
are crashing into the far
side of the Gheenoe
hull, smacking the
gunnels against my
head. Like the wolf that
chews off his own paw
to escape a trap, I knew
I would have to rip the
large hook out of my
arm. But maybe it
could wait. Somebody
was sure to see me
soon. It's a well-traveled
section of water.

Kayak
It was about three
years ago when red
tide came into
Sarasota Bay and all
but ended the fishery.
Having a chance to see
the fish kill firsthand
was an experience I
shall never forget. It
was dreadful. A good
friend who lives on
Siesta Key and had his
flats boat on a lift
behind his house was
so depressed about the
local fishing prospects
that he actually sold his
boat. It had less than
100 hours on the motor
and boat. Someone got
a great deal. A very sad
situation.
Just this past week
an invitation came my
way to fish Sarasota
Bay in an area called
Buttonwood Harbour
and the neighboring
areas of Bishop's Point
and Whale Key. I had
been hearing reports
that the fishing in
Sarasota Bay was good
again, so it was with
great expectations that
I drove the one and a
half hour trip to the
kayak put-in spot
located on Longboat
Key. The put-in spot
was terrific and we
were the only kayakers
there. One could
actually fish or kayak
the Buttonwood
Harbour area of
Sarasota Bay and then
locate about a 100
yards west where there
is another put-in spot
for the Gulf of Mexico.
This is a public park-
ing area and it is
located about two
miles north of Mote
Marine. It is hard to
find but worth it when
you do.
Just three short years
ago, this area was a

absent were baitfish,
mullet, redfish, trout
or any other type of
fish. It was painful to
see. But now I am
extremely happy to
report that Sarasota
Bay, at least this area,
is back. We saw lots
and lots of baitfish and
the mullet schools
were so thick you
could almost walk on
them. The water clarity
is outstanding and the
seagrass seems to have
weathered the red tide
phenomenon. Trying
not to exaggerate, we
must have seen over
100 redfish and several
snook as well. Most of
the redfish were on a
sandbar out in front of
the Buttonwood
Harbour area and were
sitting in the sand
holes and on top of the
sandbar with many
mixed in with mullet.
Due to the clarity of
the water, it was very
interesting to see
redfish shadowing
mullet schools. We
have always said that
when you find mullet,
you will tend to find
redfish. It was great to
see this up-close-and-
personal from the
kayak and it reinforced
everything I have been
told regarding the
relationship of the
redfish and mullet.

Bassin' for a good cause


A s we made our
farewells Dave was
little apologetic
about the slow fishing
but hoped we'd had a
good time in spite of the
fact that we only caught
28 bass. Since catching
only 28 bass in two
thirds of a day of fishing
was apparently grounds
for an apology, I couldn't
help but wonder how
many fish it would take
to rate a trip as great.
Patti and I were saying
goodbye to David Clark,
a personable, low-key
fisherman who had been
our guide for a very
interesting day on
several ponds in central
Florida not far from Fort
Meade in Polk County.
The ponds were on land
owned by Mosaic
Fertilizer and were on a
tract that had been strip
mined for phosphate
approximately 30 years
ago. This particular
section had since been
reclaimed from the
mining process and
reconstituted as pasture
land interspersed with a
number of sizable
ponds. Mosaic operates
a large and sophisticated
VIP fishing program on a
total of approximately 40
ponds that range in size
from 3 to 125 acres.
Mosaic actively
manages the fishery in
their ponds. In addition
to their fleet of small
bass boats, they also
have a dedicated
shocking boat used to
temporarily stun fish in
the ponds. The shocked
fish are surveyed for size,
species and quantity to
provide an idea of the
health of the popula-
tions in various ponds.
Mosaic has large trans-
port tanks that fish can
be loaded in and moved

from pond to pond as
necessary. They also use
this equipment to
recover fish from ponds
disrupted by the mining
process and are thus
capable of maintaining
healthy populations of
gamefish including bass,
crappie and catfish and
of prey species such as
shad and shiners.
How good is the
fishing in these ponds?
Dave talked of days
when catching 50 or 60
fish from a single pond
was not unusual. The
brochure about the
program brags that their
biggest fish to date is a
whopping 17.5-pound
largemouth. On our
fishing day, most of the
fish we landed were
between one and three


pounds, all healthy,
chunky fish full of fight.
While we didn't see any
lunkers, there was
another Mosaic boat
fishing in nearby ponds
that managed a fish of
just under six pounds.
During our several hours
of fishing we actually
fished in three different
ponds located within a
single large pasture.
When fishing slowed in
one pond, Dave was able
to quickly launch and
recover the lightweight
16-foot aluminum bass
boat by simply backing
his four wheel drive
truck down the bank
and into each pond, no
need for fancy paved
ramps for this type of
fishing.

A Susquehanna springtime 4SUNCOASTBOATING,


L yet's go back to the
mid to the late
950s. I would go
northeast from Baltimore
on U.S. 1 to Conowingo
Dam on the Susquehan-
na River every spring.
The river wakes up in
early to mid April. The
first fish to arrive from
the Chesapeake Bay are
herring. A few weeks
later, hickory shad would
arrive. In early or mid
May, the larger white
(American) shad would
arrive. Back in those days
the dam virtually
blocked these migrating
fish from going up river
and then eventually into
Pennsylvania.
In those early years, I
would sneak above a
fence near the dam and
fish for large small-
mouth bass. My tackle
was always too light for
the 3- to 5-pound bass
and the strong current. If
I hooked a monster, I
would have to run
downstream and disturb
all of the wading fisher-
men who were fishing
for the shad. Many times


I would eventually lose
these fish a quarter of a
mile down river. I was
using small, live bluegills
and anything I hooked
was usually big. Every
once and awhile I would
hook a 10- to 15-pound
striped bass (rockfish). I
don't think I ever landed
any of these fish.
After a few frustrating
years, I eventually
became one of the
wading fishermen for
the hickories and then
the white shad. The
hickory shad were
generally closer to the
shore. The larger whites
were out in deeper
water. This is where the
term "shad dart" came


Mi ;w 1 14 1 gm 1 *o I


from. It was an eighth-
or quarter-ounce jig. My
favorite was The Killer. It
was a bright orange that
was guaranteed to catch
hickories.
These fish only hit the
jigs when they are
spawning. The rest of
the year (when they're
in the ocean), they are
vegetarians.
Now the '60s and '70s
had arrived and starting
in mid-April my fishing
buddy and I would take
off from work about
noon and meet on U.S. 1
near Baltimore. We
would pull a "superman"
and change from our
sport coats and ties to
our fishing attire. Once
at the dam, we would
put our chest waders on
and greet all of the
familiar faces we
remembered from year
to year.
In 1970-1972, things
changed. It was in June
after the spring shad run
was over. A disaster hit
the area. Tropical Storm
Agnes came up from the
south and just stopped


in Virginia. It rained and
rained for at least two
days. Maryland was the
target state. It had
flooding and then more
flooding. Little tiny
streams became rivers.
Most homes in low-lying
areas had flooded
basements. Schools and
many businesses were
closed for days and days.
Then the news came
about the Susquehanna
River having major
flooding. The area below
the dam was a disaster.
The millions of small fry
(baby shad) that were
still in the river were
destroyed. That was the
end of shad fishing for at
least 20 years. I under-
stand they have come
back a bit, but nothing
like in the old days.

CAPSIZED
From page 7

I saw some boats as the
waves bobbed the green
hull of my Gheenoe up and
down. But they obviously
couldn't see me or hear my
yells for help. The fairly
light plastic paddle was
drifting nearby. I grabbed it
and tried to wave it back
and forth in the air to
signal somebody. It only
served to rob me of more
energy. As a last resort, I
started banging it on the
hull in a drum-like fashion.


Maybe someone could
hear a sharp noise. The
paddle quickly cracked in
half and became useless.
After about an hour in the
water, hypothermia set in,
and I began to shiver.
Worse, my thoughts were
becoming clouded and the
continual ingestion of the
seawater was making me
nauseous and dizzy. It was
now or never for the hook. I
gritted my teeth and pulled
the hook straight out of my
arm. I knew I was in trouble
because it didn't even hurt.
As it turned out, the hook
removal was for naught.


The life vest was hopelessly
tangled in line. I still had to
tread water to stay partially
afloat. Somewhere into my
second hour, I was on the
verge of passing out. A very
rational sounding voice in
my head was saying, "Why
fight it? Just let go. Nobody's
coming anyway. It will be a
great story. You just won't
be around to write it."
