BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Long before gasoline
prices topped $4 a gallon,
county planners and many
residents were looking for
ways to reduce driving
costs and the threat to pub-
lic health from air pollu-
tion.
Growth control propo-
nents have been warning of
the adverse consequences
of traffic congestion: delayed
ambulance response times,
increased auto accidents,
the impact on tourism and
commerce.
"The longer a motorist
has to idle in traffic grid-
lock, the more it costs that
resident/taxpayer for gas
and good health," said
Daniel J. Lobeck, a Sarasota
attorney and president of
Control Growth Now.

has questioned Sarasota
County's approach to traf-
fic control, which is based
on a formula called "con-
currency."
Clarke B. Davis, general
manager of public works
planning for the county,
describes concurrency as a
state requirement "for cer-
tain infrastructure to be in
place at the same time as a
development creating the
need for it."
Sanitary sewer, solid
waste, drainage, potable
water, parks, schools and
transportation systems are
the types of infrastructure
subject to concurrency
requirements, Davis said.
Determination of im-
provements needed for
road improvements is based
on the number of vehicles a
road can carry before a
delay or travel time thresh-
old is reached.

Lobeck recently charged
the Board of County
Commissioners with ignor-
ing "many of the evils of
traffic congestion to allow
developers to increase traf-
fic on congested roads."
Concurrency "hot spots"
at present include the
Venice Bypass, State Road
776 in the Englewood area,
River Road, Jacaranda
Boulevard and Stickney
Point Road at U.S. 41 in
Sarasota.
Trigger
"Most major, busy inter-
sections will act as bottle-
necks. Development along
a road segment might trig-
ger in-depth concurrency
analysis," Davis said.
The need for an addi-
tional turn lane at McIntosh
Road at U.S. 41 in Osprey
was revealed in a concur-
rency analysis for the Wal-
Mart Supercenter built two
years ago.

came about after similar
analysis. Davis anticipates
that needed improvements
on River Road will come
about after such a study.
The Florida Statutes
propose methods to deter-
mine concurrency. They
include timing of road
improvements, averaging
delays and speeds over the
whole traffic system versus
individual road segments
and how to mesh access for
bikers and pedestrians
alongside roadways.
Davis noted that county
staff are now studying those
approaches to come up
with what it would take to
encourage mixed use rede-
velopment in urban areas.
A campaign to educate
the public about different
applications of concurren-
cy has been approved by
the BOCC.
Lobeck's response: "We
must tell them we reject it.
If we don't, we'll find our-
selves stuck in aggravating
traffic too late to do any-
thing about it."

According to autos.msn.com on Thursday, the low-
est gas price in the Venice area was $3.949 at
Clark's Service, 213 U.S. 41 Bypass, and Joy Food

area, according to the Web site, was $4.099 at sev-

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEF


Voting system
test date set
Sarasota County
Supervisor of Elections
Kathy Dent will conduct
a mock election next
month to test the func-
tionality of the county's
optical scan voting sys-
tem that will be used in
the fall elections and
beyond.
All Sarasota resi-
dents are encouraged
to help test the upgrad-
ed system by voting at
one of the three SOE
offices in Sarasota,
Venice, and North Port
between the hours of
7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on
Tuesday, July 8.
"The main objective
is to give voters a chance
to vote a ballot on the
upgraded system before
the two major fall elec-
tions and to ensure the
system is accurate and
reliable," Supervisor


Dent said. "We will test
components of the sys-
tem leading up to and
including ballot tabula-
tion, and including tab-
ulation of absentee bal-
lots," she added.
Voters will be asked
to sign in when they
arrive at the polling
place and will be given
a mock election ballot
to vote. Each voter will
then feed the voted
ballot through the opti-
cal scan tabulator at
the polling place. An
AutoMARK voter assist
terminal will be avail-
able in all three polling
locations to help voters
with disabilities mark
their ballots.
The July 8 testing is in
addition to the testing of
all equipment that is
conducted, as a matter
of policy, prior to every
election in Sarasota
County.

South County technical high school a possible budget casualty


BY AUDREY
BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

In the continuing saga
of cutting the school dis-
trict's preliminary budget,
Sarasota County School
Board members asked
Superintendent Lori White
on Tuesday to cut $50 mil-
lion from a list of proposed
capital expenditures for
the 2008-09 school year.
They agreed to recom-
mend delaying the pro-
posed South County tech-
nical high school on
Manatee Community Col-
lege's Venice campus.
By postponing the pro-
ject for a year, the district
could save $36,000,000
from the 2008-09 budget.
While such a cut would
put the district in a favor-
able position for next
year's capital outlay, it
would put a heavier bur-
den on the district the fol-
lowing year to reconstitute
it, White said. Therefore,
she recommended, other
areas need to be cut to
share the burden of cost-
cutting.
Board members high-
lighted several items on
the list that should not be
cut, including the HVAC
renovation at Toledo Blade
Elementary School, the


SCTI Fire Academy and
the North Port High School
dining room expansion.
Gary Leatherman, com-
munications director for
the school district, said it is
especially important to
expand the dining room at
North Port High if the
South County technical
high school project is
delayed since a couple
hundred kids from the
North Port area would
have attended the techni-
cal high school.
More cuts
Other capital projects
recommended for cutting
and/or delay and the
amounts saved include:
Instructional remodel:
maintenance of parking
lots and a major renova-
tion at Sarasota High
School ($1.5 million).
Facilities: move the
repainting of Laurel
Nokomis roof out a few
years, which will not affect
the performance of the
roof ($300,000)
Districtwide: post-
pone floor replacements
and generally slow down
preventative maintenance
approach to buildings
($370,000)
Safety and security:
perimeter fencing will be
reprioritized; the scope of


work will be modified for
cameras and controls
($650,000)
Vehicle replacement:
about 23 vehicles will be
kept one year longer and six
buses will not be replaced
in the 13-year replacement
cycle ($1.16 million)
Technology projects:
reduce the projects for
students and teachers and
delay an electronic time
and attendance system


($2.45 million)
Instructional technol-
ogy: reduce NeXt Genera-
tion Learning sound sys-
tems and delay other
items ($2.4 million)
Long-range planning:
cut small projects and land
purchases ($6.5 million)
Career Technical Edu-
cation: reduce upgrades
for middle and high
school CTE labs ($1.25
million)


Competing projects:
Sarasota High renovation;
Lakeview Elementary cafe-
teria/music/art; McIntosh
Agriculture building ($3.545
million)
Process
Cuts to the 2008-09 pre-
liminary capital budget
will appear with reduc-
tions to the operating bud-
get when the superinten-
dent's tentative budget is


presented to the board for
approval at its July 22
meeting.
A public hearing to
adopt the tentative budget
and millage rates will be
held July 29 at 5:15 p.m.
The public hearing to
adopt the final millage
rates and budget is slated
for Sept. 16 at 5:15 p.m.

School offices plan

summer break


STAFF REPORT

One of the first reduc-
tions in service the Sarasota
County Schools will make
as the district adjusts to a
$32 million budget cut for
the 2008-09 school year will
be closing school offices for
a month this summer.
The last day that school
offices will be open to the
public will be Friday, June
20. They will be closed from
June 23 through July 25 and


will reopen July 28.
Traditionally the district has
kept offices open to the
public during the summer
by giving some staff mem-
bers extra-duty contract
days to cover vacation time.
Principals and other
full-time administrators
will be working at the
schools all summer, but
they will be involved in
planning and not available
to register new students or
to provide other services.

to make sure private, non-
city-related e-mails aren't
revealed.
Bennett will allow Sim-
monds' attorneys to re-
view the retrieved e-mails,
but he reserved the right to
be the final arbiter if the
forensics team and coun-
sel disagree over whether
an e-mail constitutes a
public record.
No shows
Also subpoenaed but
not in attendance at the
hearing were Mayor Ed
Martin and Council Mem-
ber John Moore. Martin
was on a business trip to
Boston while Moore was
on vacation.
At first Judge Bennett
included both council
members in his order to
make their personal com-
puters available to foren-
sic analysis.
Then he gave them an
out provide personal
affidavits post haste on
whether they deleted pub-
lic record e-mails. If Moore
and Martin say they
haven't, and if council for
the plaintiff, attorney An-
drea Mogensen, doesn't
object, Bennett said he
wouldn't subject their per-
sonal computers to the
forensics search.
Subpoenaed for the
first emergency motion
hearing that was canceled
last week, then resched-
uled to Wednesday, was
City Manager Marty Black,

Few believe the day
may bring good luck.
But Donna Wagner, a
North Port resident, looks


fy, and City Clerk Lori
Stelzer, who didn't attend.
An attorney representing
the city, said he may have
been the source of confu-
sion. He told Judge Ben-
nett he anticipated Stelzer
would be in attendance.
Moments later he stated it
wasn't his understanding
of the agreement between
the parties that she was
required at the resched-
uled hearing. Stelzer was
not listed on the docket to
appear at Wednesday's
hearing.
Testimony
Council Member Sue
Lang testified she did not
delete any public record e-
mails on her city account
or on her home computer.

"Time is of the
essence...."
Twelfth Circuit
Court Judge
Robert Bennett


Rick Tacy and Vicki
Noren testified they didn't
delete any e-mails, as well.
Unlike the rest of council,
both said they did not con-
duct any city business
from their personal e-mail
systems.
Ernie Zavodnyik dodg-
ed the proverbial "bullet."
He admitted to deleting
public record e-mails from
his home computer, but


forward to the date.
"I treat every Friday the
13th as a day of good luck
because I was born on that
day," Wagner said.


luckily he was able to
retrieve them from the
computer trash bin before
they were permanently
deleted. He made them
available to the city clerk
in response to a public
information request by
Mogensen. While on the
stand he invited counsel
to review all 2,000 of his
retrieved e-mails if they
desired.
New understanding
While the testimony did-
n't determine whether any
Sunshine Law violations
occurred that will take
place later it did clarify
council members' under-
standing of what consti-
tutes a public record.
There had been some
confusion aired in preced-
ing weeks by Martin and
Simmonds over who was
required to maintain a
public record. City rules
state the originator of the
e-mail is required to retain
it as a public record and
make it available for pub-
lic view upon request. But
state rules dictate that all
government-related e-
mails should be retained
by the designated records
custodian, which, in this
case, some council mem-
bers mistakenly presumed
to be the city clerk.
On Wednesday council
members appeared to have
a better understanding.
One by one, under oath,
each agreed a public rec-
ord was simply any com-

comes once this year.


munique regarding city
business, whether on a
city or private server.
It underscores the case
that each council member
understood the impor-
tance of retaining all city-
related e-mails, whether to
or from a constituent, or to
each other.
It also raises the ques-
tion of whether council
members merely copied
on an e-mail retained the
record. During discovery
counsel will be able to
conduct a simple cross
check to ascertain who
sent and received each e-
mail. If each recipient of
the e-mail hasn't disclosed
it as a public record al-
ready, that could bolster
the plaintiff's argument
that public records were or
are being destroyed, and
strengthen its case to ac-
cess the personal comput-
ers of all city council mem-
bers before more public
record e-mails are perma-
nently destroyed.
"I am somewhat sensi-
tive to Ms. Mogensen's
concern," Bennett said.
"Time is of the essence,
and your own IT director's
testimony is that as time
goes by more and more (e-
mail) is lost forever and
irretrievable. You and I
know discovery can go on.
What I need to craft today
is (an order) to project our
interests and Mr. Lorenzo's
interests."

D ont be surpnsed if little good
comes ofSarasota Countys mov
to install red-light cameras unless

operator orthe countybudget director
It's unlikely the action wi improve
safety at intersections, ostensibly he
reason behind the move Studies show
improvements are negligible, at best
In fact, there's edence that installmg
cameras that phphotographmotosts run
ing red lights actually increases the fre
quencyofrear-end accidents
One thing is certain It will generate
plenty of income through $125 fines,
with
operators, who will get 60 percent of the
income
Is that in the public interest
Sarasota County commissioners
recently voted to ump on the red-light
camera andwagon and look fr a com-
pany to install and operate cameras on


some county roads
Under state law, police officers can
only write tUckets when they observe
someone breaking traffic laws But
county officials believe thy can enact
an ordinance that would aow them to
photograph the license plates of cars
passing through intersections after the
light has turned red The motonst
would be identified through te photo
and sent fineof$125 Because thisisa
civil infraction, no points would be
added to license
To back up teircontention that this
would serve the public good, commis
sioners pointed to the nearly 900 viola
tors photographed dunng a three-
month study at two county mtersec
tons However, terewas no accompa-
nying evidence ofthe number ofcrash
es at the intersections
So what'sthepoinmt
"It's all about the public demand fr


this, and safety" Commissioner Chair
Shannon Staub told the Sun "If there
are extra funds that come in, teywon't
be huge"
Whch sounds reasonable he prob
lem is there is scant evidence to back
te safetyclaim
AMarch200B studybythe Umversity
of South Florida College of Public
Health fund
Fatalites caused by red-light run
nmg are not increasing m the state
hey account for less than 4 percent of
annual traffic deaths
Te rate of m]unes from such crsh-
es dropped byone-thid in recentyears,
"indicating redlight running crashes
have been continually declining
orda without the use ofcameras"
Studies from North Carolina and
Virginia indicate an increase in crashes
associated with cameras The North
Carolina study showed accident rates


increased 40 percent m Virginia, the
increase was 29 percent
This is backed up by a Washington
1, .at
showed cameras did little to low the
crash ratee le more-violent Tbone
crashes often drop, rear-end crashes
mvanablyrise
"The ngorous studies clearly rsow
red-lightcameras don'twork', said USF
study author Barbara LanglandOrban
"Instead, they increase crashes and
injunes as drivers attempt to abruptly
stop at camera intersections
The USF study said running red
lights can be slowed by "engineeng
improvements that address factors
such assignal visibilityand tmmings, wet
roads and traffic flow"
Red-light cameras end up simply
being cash machines they're good for
camera operators and governments,
but don't make te rads safer


About dogs and cats


MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


I'm writing this fr my
mommy, Mary Kay My
name is Maney, and I
know you doubt this is
possible, but we dogs who
are thrown into what is
known as "ciilized soc-
ety" understand alot more
than you know
"Experts" say we can
develop a vocabularyofup
to 40 words, although we
cannot actually speak
Believe it or not, this is te
scoop
Last Saturdaymy mom-
my was taking me fr our
early morning jaunt when
suddenly she knelt down
on the pavement
I thought maybe she
had spotted alizardbefore
I did, but then she threw
her face smack down on
the pavement so hard that
she dropped myleash
I hcked her head as she
lay there and finally she
lookedat me Dogslikethe
smell ofblood, but I didn't
like tis one bit Shegotup
andsaidwehad to go night
homes shehad hurt her
self I didn't argue onelittle
bit, although Ihadn'tactu-
ally completed by "doggy
business" asshecalls it A
well
Mommy got on the
phone and called a fnend
and I heard her say that
she had topped on some
raised pavement and fa-
en down He gothere prt-
ty fast and they went out
the door, to where I didn't
know because this activity
was definitely not part of
our normal agenda
Plus, no breakfast'
Hmmm'
When they got home a
long time later I heard
mommy talking about
hanghad a "cat scan" T
thk that I hadbeen sub-
jected to an interrupted
walk and no feed bag for a
cat In myopinon, a cat is
an antisocial furbal with
delusions ofsuperiority
After that insult, I


thought I might haw to
reconsider my position in
this household and was
definitely not looking fr-
ward to the possible arrival
of a cat on the premise
Other things changed
too Mommy has a base
bal on her forehead and
has started weanng very
weird eye make up-deep
purple on both yes Her
nosehad changed and she
looked sort of like a Sha
Pei I saw once But she
smelled the same and
talked the same and re
sumed feeding me
However, her fnend
came to walk me each day
and brought in grocenes
Mommy was not acting
normal and went around
holding ice cubes on her
head and crying when she
looked m that glass thing
on the bathroom wall
Theother dayher fend
took her out again I was
hoping she wasn't going to
scan cats again, but she
didn't mention that when
she got home and talked
on the phone to her son i
Philadelphia Shetold him
that the "doctor just kept
shaking hs head and say
mg it was one of te worst
head injuries he'd ever
seen Tat adds to my v-
cabulary as now I know
thatwhenyou smell blood
it's an "mnury"
The doctor said the
good news was that the
bram scan didn't show
anything, yak, yak
Things seem to be re
turning to normal around
here Mommy has chang-
ed her eye makeup to a
lighter color and ifsprett-
eronher Her freheadhas
agolfball on it Hernoses
starting to look more like
mme agam, but not
leather She's talking again
about the damdumbacrat
party
I love parties because
people drop lots of food
and I'm anxious to see Oh
Mama She also mentions
gas a lot and that ifit gets
any higher, we'll all be
walking Thats good'
She's singing again
Tat'sbadi

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Hands in the cookie jar


Editor
Much has been written in rent weeks aboutmost of
Venice City Council, and their alleged questionable
activities
One maywant to keep in mind that all politicians-
localstateandnatnal just cant help it First, they
believe that he minute theyssay"I do the swearing d
ceremonies that tey are immediately smarter than the
general population Secondly, when it comes to rules
and regulations, thy believe that openly or in secret,
they do not have to comply Thirdly, they believe that
other most immediate purpose and goal is to be reelect-
ed
In some counties, when elected officials are caught
with their hands in the cookie jar, or on the "send" key
not only do they confess, apologize and "accept full
responsibility," teydo the honorable thing and rsign
But, ofcourse, theydon'tle in a democracy

Enough is enough'
Editor
I cannotbe the onlycit-
Izen of the city of Vefce
who is sick and hired ofthe
constant complaints about
the airport
Foryears, thelongterm
residents have been quite
contentwith their airport
In fact, we are proud of it
Along come the new resi-
dents, and because they
bought or built a house at
he end of one ofthe run
ways, theyhav decided to
change everything for
theirow benefit Enough'
The airport isn't going any
where, so leave italone
he whining about the
private jets is another
problem My husband
flew out of te airport for
11 years from 191 to 1992
I can assure you that jets,
largeand small,were com-
ing and going during that


time Commercial jets
have grown in size Pnvate
jetshave not They are the
same ones thathave used
thealrport fr manyyears
As former Mayor Dean
Calamaras asked of a res-
dent of Bellagio when tey
were complaining about
theplanes flyng overhead,
"Didn't you see the airport
when you looked at Bel
lagio" It's not rocket s-
ence
Mhen my husband and
I moved to Venice in 19S1,
we decided to build a
house, so we went to city
hall and asked to see the
plans fr future develop
mentwithm thecitylimits
Based on whatwe saw,we
decided to build in Pine
brook and lied there fr
24 years,very happily
ebu bought the house
No one put a gun to your
head and said you will live

FOLKS SEND IN THEIR BEST PHOTOS 8B


Female loggerhead has a close



encounter at Caspersen Beach


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


PHOTOS COURTESY OF STEVE CARR


A female loggerhead turtle came ashore at Caspersen Beach
May 31 to make its nest in broad daylight, rather than in the
dark of night when nesting normally occurs. In these photos,
the turtle crawls close to a couple on the shore, heads up to a
high point on the beach, passing over some of the couple's
things before digging its nest and laying its eggs. The nesting
lasted about 45 minutes and the turtle then returned to the
Gulf. As sea turtles normally return to the area where they
themselves hatched, it is likely that this female hatched along
Caspersen Beach some 30 or more years ago.


M ay 31, at 4 p.m., a
female loggerhead
sea turtle ignored
its genetic programming
and made its nest at Cas-
persen Beach in broad
daylight and right next
to someone's beach um-
brellas.
"It was so bizarre," said
Steve Carr, who watched
and photographed the
rare occurrence.
"My wife and I were
walking down the beach
and I saw this thing crawl-
ing up by these people
who were sitting by the
water. It almost knocked
one lady over. She (the
woman) was sitting there
and it didn't detour. It
went right past her."
On a mission, the turtle
headed toward higher
ground, which happened
to be next to the lady's
beach umbrella, towels
and other items. Crawling
over some of the items, it
headed straight to its
nesting site and immedi-
ately began digging its
nest, using its back flip-
pers. Carr, a professional
photographer, with a
Nikon and long-distance
lens, starting shooting.
"I watched her for
about 45 minutes," he
said. "I saw her dig her
nest and settle in and her
eyes kind of glazed over. A
couple of years ago I saw
a nest hatch. What a great
experience. That was so
awesome. It was about
four years ago, north of
the pavilion at the Venice
Beach."
This time the nesting
site was about 1 mile
south of the last parking
lot along Caspersen Beach
in Venice, he said.
"It made a beeline to
the nest," he said. "The
lady in the chair said it al-
most knocked her over. It
headed up the beach
about 50 feet to where
they had some umbrellas
and found a spot there
and dug a hole and then
laid its eggs,"
It is a rare occasion
when sea turtles nest in
daylight, especially log-
gerheads, Kristen
Mazzarella, a staff biolo-
gist in the sea turtle pro-
gram at Mote Marine
Laboratory, said.
She confirmed it was a
loggerhead after viewing
the photos. The turtle had
some barnacles and green
moss on the back of its
shell. Carr said the turtle's
mouth was beak-shaped
and up close it appeared
that its eyes were water-
ing.
The Coastal Wildlife
Club monitors the sea tur-
tle nests along Caspersen
Beach, although Mazza-
rella said that Mote also
would be interested be-
cause of the circumstance
of the daytime nesting.
"It methodically used


mostly its back legs and
she alternated one side
and then the other," he
said. "You could see her
working into the sand.
She dug until the back
half of her body was down
deeper into the sand and
then she became very still
at that point."
While Carr saw and
photographed the sand
flying as the female log-
gerhead dug its nest, he
was unable to see the eggs
dropping into that nest,
even though he walked
around behind her, be-
cause it was fairly deep
into the nest.
Thinking the egg laying
process might take an
hour or more, Carr and
his wife decided to walk
farther down the beach,
hoping to return in time
to see the turtle head back
into the Gulf.
"But when we got back,
she was already back in
the surf," Carr said.
About half an hour had
passed from the time he
resumed walking, he said.
When he returned,
about 45 minutes had
elapsed from the time the
female loggerhead came
ashore to when it had
returned into the water.
"There were a couple of
chairs still there," he said.
"The folks there said it
didn't take long and that
after a half hour, she was
finished and gone, nearly
knocking into the same
lady again."
Carr, who lives in Nap-
erville, Ill., but winters in
Venice, worked in the
advertising field. Using his
Nikon he took 143 (10
megabyte digital) photos
that day at the beach,
including a few of a dead
manatee that had washed
ashore on Golden Beach.
The manatee's body was
removed by scientists
within minutes of Carr's
arrival.
The nesting occurred
about 4 p.m. Tony Tucker,
Mote's staff biologist in
charge of the sea turtle
program, said there was a
moderate tide at that time
and it was going out
about when the turtle
come ashore.
Sea turtle season runs
from May 1 through Oct. 1
each year, with most of
the nesting completed by
early July. In Venice, which
has darker and therefore
warmer sand, hatching
occurs about 47-50 days
after nesting. Mote and
Coastal Wildlife volun-
teers patrol the beaches
every morning at the
beginning of the season to
identify and mark nests.
They continue monitoring
the nests until the last
hatching occurs, invento-
rying the nests for hatch-
ed and unhatched eggs at
that time. An average nest
will contain approximate-
ly 100 eggs, each about

New reason to like pecans:

They're rich in antioxidants


FROM NAPSA


There's a new reason to
go nuts for pecans. The lat-
est research from the U.S.
Department of Agriculture
confirms pecans are the
most antioxidant-rich tree
nut.
Antioxidants are sub-
stances found in foods that
protect against cell damage
and, studies have shown,
can help fight diseases such
as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's,
cancer and heart disease.
Overall, pecans are ranked
in the top 20 when it comes


to foods with the highest
antioxidant capacity. To
include more pecans in
your diet, try these tips
from the National Pecan
Shellers Association:
* Sprinkle pecans on
pancakes or waffles, in
fruit-flavored yogurt or on
top of hot or cold cereal.
* Top salads and veggies
with pecans instead of
cheese.
* Coat chicken or fish
with pecans before baking.
* Bring about 20 pecan
halves to work and snack on
them throughout the day.

According to
a recent survey of spine
care professionals by the
North American Spine
Society, the number of
obese patients being treated
for spine-related disorders
has increased by 67% over the
past five years. Eighty-seven
percent of the spine care
professionals agreed that obesity
plays a major role in back pain,
and 94% recommended weight loss
as a treatment for obese patients.
Fifty-five percent of the spine care
professionals found that weight loss
resulted in major improvements in
obese patients' symptoms. The
three most common back problems
in obese patients are degenerative
disc disease, spondylolisthesis
(slippage of the lower back disc),
and disc rupture or herniation.
Clearly, weight loss should be a
top priority of obese patients
with back pain.

GUEST COLUMNIST


A seven-letter

word: courage

In the game of Scrabble
a player who puts out
seven letters is rewarded
with 50 extra points.
As my wife and I played
our almost nightly game, I
was thinking of a seven-
letter word that would
describe the human trait
that I wanted to write
about: courage.
There are many kinds of
bravery and certainly that
displayed on the battle-
fields always seems to
come up front and center.
But what about the
courage to rise up and
speak out when others are
being oppressed and you
risk danger in doing so?
Certainly the Holocaust
comes to mind when so
many said so little and did
so little to save the Jewish
people and others who
Hitler and his demons
wanted to destroy.
In totalitarian countries
such as China, those who
speak out are jailed while
in others, ruled by the iron
hand of the military or dic-
tators, dissent is punished
by death. Yet even in our


democratic country that
cherishes the right to free
speech, taking an unpop-
ular view can be deemed
unpatriotic.
There is an expression
in Chinese that a writer
put forth in a New York
Times article about how
Chinese leaders have sup-
pressed any mention of
the Tiananmen Square
massacre: "One can only
stand up from the place
where one fell."
Only now is the reli-
gious community begin-
ning to stand up to
the challenges of global
warming and of howwe let
our national leadership
mislead us for so many
years.
There is another issue
that begs to be confronted
with courage and a plan:
illegal immigration. I
remember going to a
meeting about farm work-
ers and hearing the speak-
er say, "How can a human
being be termed illegal?"
Of course they did not
enter the country through
the prescribed channels
mainly because those
channels were closed. But
when you realize why they
chose the path they did -
that they came not as ter-
rorists but to work in sub-
servient jobs for sub-
servient wages from a
country where they could
not even earn that -
where then is our mercy?
Where then are the
words of Emma Lazarus
inscribed on the Statue of
Liberty that begin:
"Give me your tired,
your poor,
Your huddled masses
yearning to breathe free."
Have we lost our sense


of compassion, our desire
to help those in need? That
is a mark not only of
national identity but of
our religious beliefs to
those anti-immigration
zealots who base their
claims on patriotism but
in reality are mocking our
nation's most deeply held
values to be a torch of
freedom, not oppression.
The people who have
crossed our borders have
done so not in the hope of
finding streets paved with
gold, but in the despera-
tion of finding work, back-
breaking work (jobs that
most Americans do not
want) to provide their
families with the basic
necessities of life. Rather
than offer them a path to
making reparations and
resuming a legal life, we
have imprisoned many of
them and forced millions
of others to live in fear and
poverty.
This is not what we as a
nation of immigrants are
all about, is it? Nor is it
what we as people of faith
have been taught to
believe. In the Torah
(Deuteronomy 16:20) we
hear the cry: "Justice, jus-
tice you shall pursue."
The prophets believed
justice is what matters most
to God, Rabbi Telushkin
states in Jewish Literacy.
Indeed Amos declares, "Let
justice well up as waters
and righteousness as a
mighty stream." (Amos:
5:24)
Shalom.

America's early true economy vehicle


The 1952 Crosley
pickup, shown
with owner Fran-
cis Hoath, 74, was one
of America's early true
economy vehicles made
from 1939 thru 1952,
mostly in Marion, Ind.
The very early models
were like glorified golf
carts, with everything
about them plain and
very simple in every
way.
This company manu-
factured an early proto-
type of the military jeep,
but it was rejected
because of trouble
producing them in
volume. They did,
however, turn out
thousands of engines,
etc., used in generators
for pumps and various
equipment needed by
the military.
Starting in early 1946,
the Crosley engineers
had brand-new models
up and available for car-
starved citizens. They
sold well and the parent
company, a large maker
of appliances, radios
and TVs, was near the
top of its field. All was
good for the Crosley
motorcar firm, despite
some problems with
engines early on, then
the Big Three really
started turning out fresh
models in volume for
not much more than the
Crosley autos. They
then tried to create
different body styles,
including station
wagons, convertibles,
and even two sporty
roadsters and a very
short run of pickups,
one of which you see
here.
Some interesting
specs include:
Their normal engine
was only 44 cubic
inches, turning out 26
horsepower, resulting in
road-cruising speeds of
45 to 50 mph.
They were almost 12
feet long and could
carry up to four people
(folks were thinner back
then), weighing under
1,100 pounds.
Gas mileage was
anywhere from 30 to 50
miles per gallon,
depending on the load
and driver habits.


Total recorded
production was about
74,000. After the 1952
series, the plant was
permanently closed
down and sold to
General Tire Company,
which really wanted
only the real estate.
Crosley has a national
club with a following of
loyal owner members.
Port Charlotte has the
second-largest restorer
of these now-prized
machines. The mechan-
ic prefers to remain
anonymous, for no
other reason than he
already has more work
than he can handle.
Those who own this
marque call him from
all over the U.S. and
Canada for parts and/or
advice.
Hoath's story is
interesting too, "getting
into old cars years ago"
buying and fixing up
numerous early Ford V-
8s, Plymouths, Buicks
and one 1953 Cadillac
convertible -which he
wishes he never sold to
a friend. A few years
ago, this colorful man
had a heart attack, at
which time his doctor
advised him to stop
working and get an easy
hobby. The Crosley bug
bit him hard enough to
buy a 1948 station
wagon and this very
rare pickup (only 700
were made), which is
now fully restored.
Looking back to 1956
through 1964, he was in
the U.S. Air Force,
stationed in Portugal,
with plenty of free time
on his hands. The result
was this clever fellow
actually made a replica
of a 1903 Ford, followed
by a 1901 Oldsmobile.
Hoath said the Ford is
presently on display in a
museum near Birming-
ham, Ala.
His mechanical skills
included being a
machinist, a model


i.
. ." ,' . .. .; '


r


maker and a plumber.
Cold, nasty weather led
to a permanent move to
Punta Gorda, where he
worked for a large
plumbing concern for
nine years. He started a
core-drilling service of
his own, operating it
until he retired, all the
time "playing with old
cars" and coasting along
in life. The Crosley
makes him happy.
Enough said!
The other little 2
cylinder, 36 horsepower
gas-saver auto pictured
is a 1971 Honda owned
by Amos and Anita
Slater of Punta Gorda,
formerly of Farmington
Hills, Mich. This couple
(especially Amos) have
been interested in old
cars for may years. He
informed me that from
age 10, "tinkering" with
cars, trucks and tractors
was a way of life. He
graduated to become a
master mechanic for 35
years, owning a large
truck, a bus and an RV
in Michigan, which he
still has. They presently
have a total of seven
Buicks, one of almost all
body styles for the 1964
model-year run.
His father was a
"Buick man," thus Amos
grew up with that GM


brand. However, while
in high school, one of
his best friends owned a
used 1973 Honda coupe,
which provided a lot of
cheap fun. That friend's
Dad also had a "good"
baby Honda, which was
often used on trips from
the Detroit area to
Tennessee, and about
which "Dad" bragged of
it getting something like
60 mpg.
Both the names Buick
and Honda remained in
his mind, and he even
had a total of 60 of what
would now be collector
cars. He decided to stay
with Buicks and find a
special vintage Honda.
While looking on eBay
in 2005, a very special,
one-of-a-kind 1971
custom-built convert-
ible was for sale. It was
soon in his possession.
Though small only 10
feet long -features like
a power-operated top, a
fancy radio and the
interior make this rare
auto stand out. When
parked next to some of
the motor homes at the
Charlotte RV Center in
Charlotte Harbor, which
Anita and Amos own, it
looks like a toy.
The Crosley Company
faded away, but Honda,
of course, went on to


become a major player
in today's array of
economy vehicles. Had
Crosley "got with the
times," it too might
have become a house-
hold name. You can see
these two "cuties" (as
they're often called)
around at local car
shows and cruise-ins.

Be prepared before going offshore


T his is the time of
year when winds
lighten to gentle
offshore breezes in the
morning hours and seas
in the Gulf are light. The
normal pattern contin-
ues with a period of
almost glass-like calm
seas as the wind begins
to clock around to
onshore breezes. The
gentle conditions allow
usual inshore boaters
and anglers an opportu-
nity to explore offshore
waters in relative safety.
But many anglers and
boaters who normally
stay inshore are ill
equipped for the vast-
ness of the featureless
Gulf and can potentially
end up placing them-
selves in peril. We've all
seen the stories on the
local news stations of
lost offshore boaters
some with tragic results.
Inshore anglers have an
almost lassiez-faire
attitude when it comes
to safety. Sure most have
the mandatory safety
equipment, an onboard
GPS and cell phones in
case something should


i,^Ing IYlY/i llIE*W lit l

go wrong. Plus there is
safety in numbers
there's usually someone
else nearby by to hail or
signal for help in case of
equipment failure.
But the proximity of
land makes some of us
careless. I often forget to
put my hand-held VHF
radio in my bag when I
head out for a few hours
of fishing I even fish
with guys who don't own
a radio. We tend to take
our well being on the
water for granted as we
boat in the relative
shallow waters of
Charlotte Harbor and
backcountry. Heading to
offshore waters is
another thing altogether
and requires some


H dii aI>lD:: I:JI;I:I:;


planning. There may not
be another boat in sight
for the entire trip to lend
assistance, cell phones
will stop working, and
things could go really
wrong in short order.
Here are a few things for
small-boat owners to
think about before
heading out into the
blue water.
Pay attention to the
weather. A long rn back
to port in nasty weather
isn't only dangerous; it's
uncalled for. Today's
technology places all the
information needed for
a safe day on the water
at one's fingertips with
the many weather sites
on the Internet. Check
one or two before
heading out the door.
File a float plan: I'd be
willing to bet that the
majority of inshore
boaters and anglers
heading out on the
water for a few hours
don't even consider a
float plan or at least
informing someone
where they'll be. It
would be a wise move to
let someone know when


you're leaving, when you
expect to return and
what to do if you don't.
Bring along charts of
the area and a compass.
The popularity of
affordable GPS units
makes life safer on the
water but if one should
fail, it would be wise to
have a backup source for
navigating.
Make sure all safety
equipment required for
the size of your boat is
current, operating and
readily accessible
signaling devices,
extinguishers, personal
floatation and such.
You may need them in
a hurry.
Make sure all naviga-
tional lights are working
and bring spare bulbs.
Bring along flashlights
or searchlights as
insurance.
Make sure your gauges
function properly. A
malfunctioning fuel
gauge can and does spell
disaster.
Have plenty of fuel for
the trip. Think in terms
of using a quarter of the
fuel for the trip out,


FWC to hold supplemental gator permit sale


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission will hold a
supplemental sales
period for people who
failed to get an alligator
hunt permit or those
who would like to return
a permit with the hope
of trying to obtain
another. This additional
sales period will help
reduce any inconven-
iences caused by a
computer programming
glitch during the initial
sales period on June 3,
which resulted in


confusion and frustra-
tion for many applicants
as they tried to buy
permits. Persons who are
unsure of whether they
have been awarded a
permit should check
their status online by
going to www.MyFWC.
com/gators and clicking
on "CheckYour Alligator
Harvest Permit Status."
A limited set of permits
will go on sale starting at
10 a.m. June 17 on a first-
come, first-served basis
through the Total
Licensing System.


Outdoor Central's
management team has
identified and corrected
the glitch in its system.
A listing of the mini-
mum number of permits
that will be available
during this supplemental
sales period, along with
instructions on how to
return unwanted permits
and more details about
this opportunity, will be
posted on the FWC's
Alligator Management
Web site at www.
MyFWC.com/gators. The
deadline to purchase a


permit is 11:59 p.m.
June 23.
The date when cus-
tomers can purchase
additional permits, if any
are available after the
initial and supplemental
sales periods, has been
postponed from June 10
to June 24 at 10 a.m.


People can apply for a
permit at any county tax
collectors office, any
retail outlet that sells
hunting licenses or on
the Intemet at www
wildlifelicense.com.
The alligator hunting
season runs from Aug. 15
through Nov 1.


another for general
fishing, boating, etc.
another for the trip back
and the last quarter for
an emergency.
Have aVHF radio
onboard, no excuses.
Consider purchasing
an EPIRB (Emergency
Position Indicating
Radio Beacon) or a PLB
(Personal Locator
Beacon). They're trans-
mitting devices that can
and do insure someone
will find you if your
vessel goes down.
Other items that
should be part of a
safety kit should
include: A first aid kit,
tools and spare parts,
spare propeller and lock
nut, sunscreen, extra
clothing, drinking water
and food (energy bars
stow well), prescription
drugs, and binoculars.
This is a short list for a
day trip and is in no way
complete. If you do
decide to head offshore,
take the time and effort
to insure a safe return.
Remember: Leaving port
is an option, returning is
mandatory. Be safe.

Feeding my fishing addiction


I freely admit my
addiction to fishing
and I don't make
this admission as part
of some multi-step
program designed to
cure me of the afflic-
tion. In fact, I don't
want to be cured and I
don't think I ever will be
cured. One sign of my
addiction can be seen
in my garage where I've
accumulated far too
much fishing gear. I've
got as many rods as
some tackle shops.
Another sign is that I
choose to spend large
chunks of my leisure
time chasing fish even
though I also spend
large chunks of my
professional life
involved in chasing fish.
For example, even
though I've spent quite
a few days this spring
chasing tarpon, cobia,
redfish, snook, sharks,
mackerel and many
other highly desirable
saltwater species, I still
chose to spend a recent


day off on a fishing trip.
And if there is any
doubt that I'm hooked
on all kinds of fishing
then consider that even
with all the glamour
species currently
available, I happily
spent an afternoon
fishing in tiny local
ponds where the
biggest fish in the entire
body of water could
have been used for bait
in some of our saltwater
fisheries.
On the day of this
most recent fishing
madness, I picked up
my accomplice (known
as Nova Scotia Doug)
and headed out in the
heat of the afternoon
on a blazing hot day,
scarcely ideal time for
pond fishing, but it was
the time when we could
both get away. We threw
a couple of fly rods and
an assortment of hand-
tied and store-bought
flies in the truck and for
our first stop we headed
south to the


Babcock/Webb Wildlife
Management Area in
search of cooperative
fish.
One of the few
benefits of our current
drought is that pond
levels are low and the
banks are dried out,
making for easy shore-
line fishing. We fished
two ponds, both of
which are accessible
only after a short hike
and don't receive much
angling pressure. We
were able to fish our
way completely around
each pond and had
similar results in each.
We caught a handful of
small bluegill and a
couple of small bass.
The water in each pond
was clear enough to see
that there were many
more bass interested
enough follow our flies,
but most would turn off
without attempting to
take, even though we
tried a variety of surface
and sinking patterns
imitating both insects

Captain Ralph,
My name is Jim Helchelbech and after reading your article in the May 29 issue of
WaterLine, I have a question concerning the Florida regulations. In the article, it's stated
in section 3 that catch-and-release anglers are not affected by the new regulations
pertaining to the venting and dehooking tools and that the rule applies only to those
people, fishing out of a boat, and are "harvesting" their fish. My question is, what
difference does it make if the fish are being "harvested" and not released? The whole
purpose of the new "required" equipment is to give fish a better chance of survival after
release. Am I missing something or am I misunderstanding the new rules? Thanks.

Jim,
The Florida version of the new rules (there is a similar, but slightly different federal
version that applies in federal waters of the Gulf) specifies that the rules apply to
anglers harvesting reef fish species from a vessel. Shore or pier anglers and those
anglers who practice only catch-and-release are not included. Yes, it does seem odd
that the wording of regulations exempts catch-and-release anglers in state waters. The
new rules will require venting tools to be carried by boats harvesting mangrove
snapper and a few other reef fish species in shallow inshore waters where venting is
not recommended, which also seems odd. This may be a rule that gets tweaked by
the FCC at some point in the future.

That might save you.
Even more importantly,


if going off shore, don't
have an EPIRB on board.
That thing will send out
a call for help automati-
cally while constantly
broadcasting your
location -hard to avoid
rescue under those
conditions.
Lastly, if your boat
capsizes, be sure to
swim to shore for help. If
you stay with the boat
you have something
afloat to hang on to, a
place to climb up out of
the cold water and a big
white hull to be spotted
from the air. Swim to
shore so you are harder
to see and increase the
probability ofhypother-
mia and drowning.
If you will follow my
tips above, then we have
a great chance to kill the
most boaters in the
nation once again next

the fishing was not red
hot here either, we did
catch a few larger bass
including a couple that
bested the one-pound
barrier. No giants, but
plenty of fun on light
fly rods. These ponds
are an example of a
fishery that's usually
overlooked, probably
because they're right
alongside such a busy
road that no one
thinks to fish in them.
By day's end we'd
spent six hours and
driven 30 miles and
had collectively caught
approximately 30 fish.
While 30 fish sounds
like a bunch, the total
weight of the 30 fish
was probably less than

Circumnavigating the Harbor SUNOSTBOATING


Editor's note: Will
White has turned over
his nextfive columns to
Bill Dolan ofPlacida.
Bill wrote this account
ofa four-day cruise
around Charlotte
Harbor for afew sailing
friends, and White
thought it deserved a
wider readership.
This cruising log
details the cir-
cumnavigation of
Charlotte Harbor, May
7 through 10, 2008, by
"Sea Bird," a Marshall
Sanderling 18-foot LOA
gaff rigged catboat with
three days' supplies
aboard, and her
skipper, Bill Dolan.

DAY 1: FROM PLACIDA
TO SANIBEL ISLAND
It seems to be one of
the unspoken rules of
sailing that the wind
will blow strongly from
the exact direction you
wish to go. My original
plan was to sail directly
south from Placida to
the Tween-Waters
Marina in Captiva
Island with a lunch
stop at Cayo Costa.
That would be the
mid-point of the trip
and a convenient place
to have my prepared
lunch and visit with
my friend Mike the
park ranger. With a
wind of 15 knots
blowing directly on the
nose from the south, a
trip into the teeth of
the wind seemed
unwise and very
uncomfortable.
Moving on to Plan B,
I decided I'd take
advantage of the wind
and head North to
Stump Pass State Park
some 10 miles up the
coast. From Eldred's,
Sea Bird and I headed


out the small swash
channel that parallels
the Boca Grande
Causeway and heads
directly out into the
Gulf of Mexico. One
carefully picks his way
through the shoals and
cannot be in a hurry to
turn in a northerly
direction. Once we
were out in the Gulf
and a mile or so off
shore, a brisk breeze
pushed the boat north
at a speed of five knots
towards the Stump
Pass inlet. This inlet is
constantly being
changed by shoals but
is well marked with
day marks and lighted
buoys and no boat
should really have any
difficulty navigating
its way.
The ride northbound
was wet with a follow-
ing sea and I was well
soaked by the time I
made it into the inlet.
Stump Pass State Park
offers picnic tables,
showers and a protect-
ed anchorage. I took
advantage of all and
included a well-
deserved afternoon


nap. The winds
increased through the
afternoon and I headed
southbound on the
Intracoastal Waterway
towards the Palm
Island restaurant where
I could take advantage
of free dockage and a
sumptuous meal. By
the time I was finished
with dinner it was dark
and the winds had
calmed considerably.
Out came the spotlight
and on went the
navigation lights.
I moved south along
the ICW under motor
about five miles further
south to Don Pedro
State Park. This park is
relatively new and is
quite a facility. It is on
Little Gasparilla Island
and has all the ameni-
ties one could ask for.
Free dockage, rest
rooms, showers,
covered eating facili-
ties, grills and close by
beach access are
available. This park is


KWet """ ""


only accessible by
shallow-water boats as
the hard-to-find
channel that leads to
its entrance is dredged
only to two and one
half feet. A small, well-
hidden sign at the
channel entrance
marks the entrance
through the man-
groves. I made myself a
cup of tea, set my
mosquito netting, then
read my book and
caught the latest
weather forecast on the
radio. Ah, good, the
winds are forecast to be
from the north tomor-
row as a cold front
passes during the
night. A rain shower
preceded the cold front
on schedule.
As I pondered the
day, I realized I had put
in a full day of sailing
and had made a
complete circle that
put me back within a
mile of Eldred's, my
starting point.

Offshore fly fishing action is getting hot


eg, plead, whine,
stow away or do
whatever you can
to hitch a ride on an S
offshore boat this
summer because hard- that will make their arms
pulling, powerful fish sore in quick order. They
await the fly rod enthusi- aren't the usual suspects
ast. Better yet, offer to like snook, redfish, trout

are with your buddies sharks, bonito, blackfin

Summer offers up kingfish. And they can
great fly fishing opportu- all be taken with a well-
nities for anglers looking presented fly. It may not
to tangle with brutes be easy, but it's definitely


worth the trouble.
Many summer morn-
ings begin with relatively
calm conditions that
make for an easy run to
offshore locations and
relatively easy casting
conditions for fly
fishermen. Take note
that boats rigged for
offshore fishing -even
small ones -aren't fly
fishing friendly. Storing a
9-foot fly rod is often
problematic, but easily
solved by bringing along
a four-piece rod and


rigging it up upon your
arrival at a spot. Casting
is also problematic
because T-tops, anten-
nae, outriggers and large
helm stations get in the
way. By positioning
yourself along one side
of the boat -port side
for right-handers facing
the stern -casts can be
made behind the boat
by reaching out and
casting along the length
of the boat. This will
keep you out of every-
one else's way.
Don't even thing about
bringing a rod lighter
than a 10-weight. Most
fish are powerful, make
long runs and are large,
so bring tackle strong
enough to tame them in


short order. Besides the
other guys on the boat
will appreciate not
having their fishing time
chewed up by excessive-
ly long fly rod battles.
OK, the fish:
Bonito: Schools of
feeding bonito can be
easily spotted from a
distance. Wheeling and
diving birds give them
away as does the
churned up water. A fly
rod rigged with floating
line and any light
colored baitfish pattern
will should get you into
fish. The action can be
fast and furious, much
like the fish.
Blackfin tuna: They
may be mixed in with
bonito or by themselves,


especially when long
distance trips are taken.
Use the same drill when
fishing for them, but the
reality is: Catching one is
usually a surprise while
you fishing for some-
thing else.
Amberjack: If you're
serious about catching
amberjack with your fly
rod then stop and fill the
livewell with baitfish.
Once anchored over a
reef, wreck or structure,
begin throwing out
"chummers" much
like inshore snook
fishermen do -to
attract them near the
surface. Cast a large

The deep, mysterious joys of fish guts


In case you can't tell
from the smell, this
article is about fish
guts. Every fisherman
handles them, but the
disposal process differs
from angler to angler.
Some of you are lucky
enough to have a fish-
cleaning table on your
dock. I don't have a
dock or a saltwater
canal. So that means
my backyard picnic
table does double duty
as my marine butcher
shop. The entrails end
there.
Initially, my wife was
not happy to discover I
was filleting fish atop a
table designed for
munching sweet corn
and watermelon. I
guess seeds and cobs
are OK, but trout ribs
rub her the wrong way.
Fish scales are great
surface protectors.
Even with a thorough
wash down, my picnic
table shines like a silver
king. Did you know
that most high fashion
shimmering lipsticks
contain fish scales as a
prime ingredient?
I try not to make a
mess. I cover the
wooden table planks
with newspaper -old
editions ofWaterLine
are perfectly suited to
absorb runny fish
innards. Make sure and
read the WaterLine first.
Don't ever use shiny
cover fishing maga-
zines. They have a low
absorbency rate -kind
of like cheap paper
towels. I used to wrap
up the remains of the
day and dump them
into a black plastic
lawn and leaf bag. Wal-
Mart was out of them
one day and I bought a
roll of bags that were
supposedly "environ-


ain~i1llTdiallamm

mentally friendly." You
know what that
descriptor means -
they cost more and
they don't work as
well. I tried loading up
one of these new bags,
but a fin poked a hole
in the all natural
material and whoop-
sie-doodle, there goes
the bowel holdings of
a redfish onto the
driveway. Talk about a
carbon footprint.
I save a few chunks
for Trudy the Turtle.
Trudy is a Florida
softshell who always
knows when I catch a
keeper. She's not afraid
to move onshore from
the canal and nudge
my toe to remind me
about getting her
share. I don't feed the
animals that wander
outside my house,
especially not the birds
or gators, but I figure
any animal dedicated
enough to use webbed
feet deserves dessert.
Honestly, I'm really not
even sure whether
Trudy shouldn't be
named Timmy. I don't
flip turtles to check
gender. Can't afford to
lose a finger. Especially
my middle one I
wouldn't be able to
drive.
Once I have complet-
ed the cleaning process,
I have great intentions
to make chum out of

Matching jighead styles to conditions


I pent some time a
few days ago fishing
a few of my favorite
Bull Bay shorelines. As
it's been lately and for
what seems like forever,
the wind was blowing
strong out of the south-
west. This combined
with the afternoon high
tide pushed lots of water
into the bushes and
adjacent grassflats. This
was also one of those
days when I was throw-
ing a few of my favorite
soft plastic jerkbaits and
I found myself having to
make some small
jighead adjustments to
counter the conditions.
Basically, I needed just
enough weight to
provide dependable
accurate casts and to
also ensure that my baits
got down to the bottom
where I felt the fish were
holding. The water was
extremely murky, as it
had been turned up by
the wind. In addition, I
wanted my baits to have


94








a high profile while
bouncing off the bottom
through the sand holes
that were mixed in with
the seagrass. I felt like
this presentation would
make the baits more
visible.
Most days, I like to
throw a lightweight, one-
sixteenth- or one-
eighth-ounce, weedless
style jighead that gives
my baits a slow horizon-
tal drop. This allows the
jig to slowly work the
entire water column.
However on rough and
choppy days that
include a high tide, I like


a standard style jighead
that drops straight down
and allows the tail of the
bait to swing back and
forth on the bottom
itself, especially in the
sand holes. I also like to
go up in weight to about
a quarter of an ounce. It
just seems that when the
water chops up, fish shy
away from feeding in the
upper end of the water
column and eat better
off the bottom.
One things for sure,
especially during spring,
it seems like it just never
stops blowing, but at
least we're getting some
good afternoon tides.
More importantly, the
fish do have to eat and
sometimes a small
adjustment can help
make the difference.
Besides, every time we
tie on something a bit
different, the anticipa-
tion as well as excite-
ment level goes up. And
isn't that one of the
things that keeps us


i- ii i- ii I
Rig leikbails lo, the
conditions on hand.


coming back for more;
never knowing what's at
the end of the next cast.
One more thing, don't
forget to tie the jighead
on with a good loop
knot. It'll help give your
lure a lot more action.

style streamers, especial-
ly chartreuse and white)
and strip it back to the
boat. When a fish takes,
you'll be in for a long
hard dogfight. What
more excitement? Cast
relatively large poppers
behind the boat and
chug them back; the
strikes are very, very
cool.
Barracuda: You'll
probably see a mess of
large barracuda around
the boat that can often
be taken with a fly rod.
They aren't easy to fool
but it can be done. I've
had relatively good
success using patterns
like a Dalhberg diver I
can strip it back to the
boat quickly and it often


breaks the surface with a
sputter or two. That
action seems to trigger a
strike reaction from wary
barracuda. It doesn't
work all the time, but it
does work often enough
to hang a big barracuda.
Sharks: Sooner or
later, sharks will show up
around the boat, espe-
cially if you are chum-
ming. Often they show
up in good numbers and
will become pests
attacking other fish your
buddies are trying to
land. But they can be
caught with a fly rod by
drifting a large fly
pattern in front of them,
especially if you're
chumming with dead
bait or pieces of bait.
The key here is to use a
large, very visible pattern
-a large bright orange
pattern works for me.


Watch the fly as it drifts
and watch the fish for
the take, then set the
hook. Hedge your bets
by "sliming" the pattern
with dead bait scent.
Some very large sharks
can be hooked this way.
It may not be classic fly
fishing, but it is fun in a
perverted way. Again, a
wire bite tippet is
mandatory
This is a short list of
offshore offerings; there
are more but after tangle
with these, you may not
be up to the task. Do
something different this
summer; tangle with a
brute. Have fun.

Musical returns
to Mertz for run

him
Cool
Let s Go
Features Editor

W while

some folks will be
heading to Ramblers
Rest inVenice for the monthly
Southwest Florida Bluegrass
Association event, others will be
heading farther north to
Sarasota for some culture of a
differentvariety.
"Menopause, the Musical" is
scheduled for a return un in
the Mertz Theatre at the Florida
State University Center for the
PerformingArts where it broke
attendance records and was
extended at least eight times
two years ago. This time
around, the show is scheduled
to play from June 12 to July 13,
with evening performances at 8
p.m. Tuesday through Saturday
and 2 p.m. matinees Saturday
and Sunday.
Even though the action takes
place at a lingerie sale (or per-
haps because of that premise),
this musical had plenty of men
in the audience during its previ-
ous mn at the Mertz. Featuring
songs that sound like songs that
women (and men) knew and
loved back in the 1960s and
1970s, this show has people
wanting to sing along with the
four women on stage as they
talk and sing about chocolate
binges, night sweats, too much
sex as well as not enough sex
"I Heard it Through the
Grapevine" did not sound quite
the same the first time around
or even later on that commer-
cial. Both book and lyrics were
created by Jeanie Linders who
somehow made that and the
other tunes all sound better this
time around.
For tickets, call the
FSU Center's box office at
941-351-8000 or 800-361-8388
or visit www.asolo.org.
It will be interesting to see if
this summer's mn breaks the
previous attendance record. My
money is on the show.


'THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW'

The undisputed champion of audi-
ence devotion, The Rocky Horror
Show' is a rock musical spoof of
old horror movies and a celebra-
tion of all sides of our natures.
Adult themes and language. VLT
produced this show in the Spring
'07 and it sold out before it
opened, so it's being reprsed with
largely the same cast.

Eliot Pryne, played by Paul Hyatt, is

Venice will be all jammed


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Bluegrass jammers will be
gathering inVenice this week-
end, June 13-15, for a three-day
jam fest, including a special
bluegrass show.
Anyone interested in
Bluegrass, whether player or lis-
tener, is welcome, according to
HerbWashburn of the Southwest
Florida Bluegrass Association,
which is overseeing the event.
This and the remaining monthly
summer events will all be held at
Ramblers Rest Resort on River
Road, about 3 miles west of Exit
191 of Interstate 75. The ark is on
the left, at 1300 North River Road.


The June event will include
jam sessions, a guitar workshop
and, Saturday, a Bluegrass show
from 1-4:30 p.m.
Saturday's show will be in the
air-conditioned McDonald Hall,
which has plenty of seating
according to the show's spon-
sors. Do not bring lawn chairs.
The featured entertainers will
be: Swinging Bridge,
Generations, The Wirebeaters,
and The Fleas. Admission to the
show is $5 per person or free for
members of the Southwest
Florida Bluegrass Association. As
the group's annual dues are just
$20 for a family residing in the
the same house, membership


sounds like a good idea.
The weekend event, part of a
series of monthly events, begins
at 2 p.m. Friday and continues
through Sunday at 11 a.m. Jam
sessions are open to the public
and anyone is welcome to join
in the jam, no matter the skill
level. Sessions will begin at 7
p.m. Friday evening in
McDonald Hall and will contin-
ue until 11 p.m. or midnight,

The Chronicles of Narnia:
Prince Caspian (PG) B+
One year later, the kings and queens of
Narnia find themselves back in that far-
away wondrous realm, only to discover
that more than 1,300 years have passed
in Narnian time. During their absence, the
Golden Age of Narnia has become extinct
and Narnia has been conquered by the
Telmannes and is now under the control
of the evil King Miraz, who rules the land
without mercy. The four children will soon
meet a curious new character: Narnia's
rightful heir to the throne, the young Prince
Caspian, who has been forced into hiding,
as his uncle Miraz plots to kill him in order
to place his own newborn son on the
throne. With the help of the kindly dwarf,
a courageous talking mouse named
Reepicheep, a badger named Trufflehunter
and a Black Dwarf, Nikabnk, the

Elliot Moore (Mark Wahlberg) what matters

the road, first by train, then by car, with
Elliot's math teacher friend Julian (John

Jess (Ashlyn Sanchez), heading for the
Pennsylvania farmlands where they hope

discovers a sliver of hope that his fragile
family might be able to escape what is
happening. 1 hr. 31 mins.

YoungAt Heart (NR) B
Since 1982 Young At Heart, a chorus
composed of senior citizens, has enter-
tained audiences at home and abroad
with unique renditions of punk, rock, and
rhythm-and-blues songs by musicians as
disparate as the Clash, Coldplay and
James Brown. With a new show entitled
"Alive and Well" six weeks away,
Young@Heart's taskmaster choral director
has six new songs for these inspiring
elders to learn.
While the chorus prepares for the con-
cert, some members struggle with serious
health problems, impressing us even fur-
ther with the special challenges the group
faces. Funny, Poignant, and inspirational,
Stephen Walker's intimate documentary
demonstrates that the Young@Heart cho-
rus only gets better with age. 107 mins.

to be presentedAug. 16 at the
theater on Dearborn in
Englewood.
Jeff Michaels will direct the
show, with the assistance of
Isabelle Michaels.
In summer stock fashion, the
campers will particiapte in every
aspect of the show's production.
Their daily sessions will offer


experience in vocal warming up,
audition preparation and such
behind-the-scenes lessons as
show blocking, direction, techni-
cal terms, props and set design.
Day one of the camp will fea-

pians will learn to audition and
then do it that first day. Every
camper will have a part in the
production, from chorus mem-
ber to lead.
Sessions will be held Monday,
Wednesday and Friday, begin-
ning with vocal warm-ups at 9

In addition to pollishing their
roles, the young actors will learn
other aspects of play production,


including the management of
backstage support, including
scene changing and prop place-
ment. Daily sessions end at 1
p.m.
"Godspell Junior," originally
conceived and directed by John-
Michael Tebelak for Broadway,

and lyrics by three-time
AcademyAward winner Stephen
Schwartz, who was in Sarasota
recently for the debut of the
reworking of the 1978 Broadway
show, "Working." That shows
heading to Broadway later this
year. Schwartz, Lin-Manuel
Miranda and Gordon Greenberg
teamed up to pare down the


number of characters while
plumping up the story. Schwartz
created new music and lyrcis for
that show, as he did for
"Godspell Junio." His song, "It's
An Art," about the life of a wia-
tress was one of the hits of the
reworked show, "Working.".
Like "Godspell," the adapta-
tion also reflects on the life of
Jesus and includes clowning,


pantomime, charades, acrobat-
ics, singing, dancing and vaude-
ville-style numbers. One of its hit
songs is "Day By Day."
Camp enrollment is limited
and the cost is $80 per child. To

Toy Story ride opens at


Disney's Hollywood Studios


By KIM COOL
FEATUREs EDITOR
What's not to love about
Mr. Potato Head?
The popular toy with many
faces is bigger than life in the
newest ride at Disney's
Hollywood Studios Theme Park
over at the Walt Disney Resort.
The ride is Toy Story Mania,
which opened May31, and is

in California.
May 14, I was at the head of a
line of reporters and others
allowed to check it out. As if
being first in line for a Disney
line was not fun in itself, I then
was able to practically jog
through the twists and turns of
the ride's entry and up the stairs
to step into one of the waiting
vehicles but not without
stopping for a brief chat with
Mr. Potatohead before picking
up a pair of special 3-D glasses.
Disney Imagineers added
the voice of Don Rickles to the
audioanimatronic Mr.
Potatohead, which uses technol-
ogy similar to that of Crush the
sea turtle over at Epcot. Thanks

you, actually responding to your
questions and comments. Not
bad for a 5-foot tall plastic
potato!
Inspired by the two Toy Story
films, the ride immerses you in a
series of midway games. The
cars in which you ride contain
two spring-loaded shooters,

a lofty goal for a shrunken per-

For the grand opening of Toy Story, the newest ride at the Hollywood

the entrance to greet the first riders.

DIRECTIONS
Take Interstate 75 north to Exit 261 (1-4).Travel along 1-4 east to Exit 64B (1-192
West), which leads to the main entrance to the Walt Disney World Resort. Follow the
Disney signs to Disney's Hollywood Studios or the resort or hotel of your choice.
