BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

Recently our Saturday
cycling group biked the
Legacy Trail, this time at a
leisurely pace so we could
better appreciate the ride
and the surroundings.
The consensus was it
is a wonderful trail that
provides an excellent
outlet for exercise and
enjoyment. Getting there
from Venice was another
matter.
I was very happy to read
last week the county com-
missioners have commit-


ted to finding the funding
for the replacement of the
trestles at Dona and
Roberts bays. Jim Harriott,
the county public works
director, estimates the
trestles will be completed
by September 2010. That's
about two years away, but
at least it is a commitment
and something we can
look forward to.
Sarasota County Com-
missioner Jon Thaxton said
that one of the questions
he is most asked is, when
are you going to get the
trestles built? So that we
don't disappoint him, I


encourage all of you inter-
ested in our trail system to
put the same question to
him, or any of the other
commissioners, when you
have the opportunity.


SUN FILE PHOTO
When the Venetian
Waterway Park and the
Legacy Trail are formally
joined, we will have some-
thing very special.
Ride safe, ride smart.


NEWS BRIEF
Date set for
voting system test
Sarasota County Super-
visor of Elections Kathy
Dent will conduct a mock
election next month to
test the functionality of
the county's optical scan
voting system that will be
used in the fall elections
and beyond.
All Sarasota residents
are encouraged to help test
the upgraded 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.


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 optical
scan tabulator at the
polling place. An Auto-
MARK voter assist termi-
nal will be available in all
three polling locations to
help voters with disabili-
ties mark their ballots.
The July 8 testing is in
addition to the testing of
all equipment that is con-
ducted, as a matter of pol-
icy, prior to every election
in Sarasota County.

CENTER from Page 1A
ization of a new 50,000-
square-foot public safety
center that is structurally
sound and geographically
located, to ensure it can
provide critical services
and government continu-
ity after the advent of a
major storm event.
"The county Emerg-
ency Operations Center is
the focal point for our abil-
ity to direct responses to
emergencies," McCrane
said. "It's critical to con-
struct a secure building
where we can manage op-
erations during and after
storms. This federal fund-
ing is extremely important
to the new emergency


operations facility."
Back-up
McCrane oversaw a
mock hurricane drill on
June 5, in which all Emerg-
ency Operations Center
functions were moved from
1660 Ringling Blvd. to the
newer, better-fortified Wilk-
inson Elementary School,
about 6 miles away.
"There were about 400
people involved in this op-
eration across the county,"
McCrane said. 'And about
300 of those were at the
elementary school."
Wilkinson Elementary
is currently the alternate
building EOC staff will
occupy in the event of any
storm stronger than a


Category 2, which is the
limit of the Ringling Boul-
evard building.
"Wilkinson Elementary
has impact glass, is out of
the storm surge at a higher
elevation," McCrane said.
Sarasota County Com-
mission Chair Shannon
Staub echoed McCrane's
gratitude for the procured
funding.
"This federal funding
will greatly help Sarasota
County construct a new
hurricane-hardened emer-
gency operations center to
assure the safety of our citi-
zens during storms," Staub
said. "We greatly appreci-
ate Congressman Buchan-
an's help."

points higher than it was a
year ago.
Easier elsewhere?
For those who graduat-
ed and went away for
school, it seems there are
more employment oppor-
tunities in college towns.
Guerrero found a part-
time office job at the Uni-
versity of South Florida
within just a week of
searching.
"It is easier in Tampa,"
Guerrero said. "I see busi-
nesses looking for new
employees all the time."
Kristi Holloway, 19, left
Venice after graduation
last year to attend the Uni-


versity of Central Florida.
"Orlando is more devel-
oped," Holloway said.
"There are always people
coming and going, so there
is always job availability."
Hourly job positions
that have been available
for teens in the past are
now being filled by those
more qualified and avail-
able.
Gas prices are at an all-
time high, and the cost of
living keeps rising.
A part-time job at a
local ice cream parlor may
not be left for the the sum-
mer job-seeking teen any
longer.
VHS graduate Italia De
Carlo moved to New York
after graduation last year.


De Carlo planned to
spend a full three months
in Florida for the summer,
but has decided to cut her
vacation short.
"I thought I would be
able find a job while I was
home for the summer,"
the 19-year-old said.
De Carlo recently ob-
tained her certified nurs-
ing assistant license.
"I am going back to
New York in two weeks,"
she said. "There is a posi-
tion open for me to work
as a CNA.
"The job market has to
get better. It can't be this
difficult forever."

of the city's past successes
- like adopting the city
ethics code and award-
winning PRIDE program,
reducing property taxes
and the costs of govern-
ment, creating new com-
munity partnerships, re-
ceiving considerable state
and federal funding for
local projects, and gener-
ally turning the city into a
"high performance orga-
nization."
He was instrumental in
resolving federal and state
litigation involving the dis-
posal of reclaimed water, a
situation he inherited, said
city spokeswoman Pam
Johnson.
'As creator of the city
budget, he has been ahead
of the curve in managing
assets and making adjust-
ments to the fiscal impacts
challenging local govern-
ments today," Johnson said.
Black credited fellow
employees for those ac-
complishments and thank-
ed them for their continu-
ing support.
"Retiring from the city
will allow me to enjoy
leave with family and for
mayor and city council to
consider additional chang-
es desired during this tran-
sition," Black wrote in the e-
mail announcing his resig-
nation.
Outpouring
of support
The news hit followers
of city hall activity hard.
"I really feel this is a
great loss for the city," said
John Ryan, president and
CEO of the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce.
"Marty was uniquely qual-
ified as a leader and his
combination of planning
and managerial skills were


a big plus for Venice."
"He always availed him-
self to those who asked for
his help and understood
how important business is
to our community. We wish
him well and hope that we
can find someone as talent-
ed and caring as Marty."
"It is a sad day for the
city that Marty Black is
retiring," said longtime
resident and land-use at-
torney Jeff Boone.
"Most people I know
who have lived here long
enough to have seen the
city under several city
managers ... believe he is
the best we have had.
From what I understand,
the last time there was as
much sadness on the part
of city staff as there was
yesterday was when for-
mer City Clerk Bernie
Simansky retired."
"Marty did a great job,
and staff's morale was,
overall, as high as I can
remember it in a very long
time. He was extraordinar-
ily proactive. Just look at
the impact of the huge
decrease in the city's prop-
erty tax values, and the fact
that Marty already had the
city positioned to absorb it
without the additional
large cuts in services and
staff that other local gov-
ernments around here
faced. That is just one very
recent and visible example
of his proactivity. There
have been several other
issues during his term that
never became serious
problems because of how
proactive he was."
"He was one of the best
of the best," said former
Mayor Fred Hammett,
who worked with Black
while serving on the plan-
ning commission, then on


council. "He did some
magnificent things for the
city after taking over as city
manager. He had a strong
planning background and
a strong vision for the city."
Foresight
Hammett said he thinks
several city projects may
be in jeopardy now that
Black is leaving.
"I'm concerned about
several projects that could
be meaningful to the city,"
Hammett said. "The Bridg-
es, the Cemex properties
near Grove Terrace and
Grove Terrace (Apart-
ments) are potentially in
jeopardy without the vis-
ion and driving force
Marty and his team had. I
think we are in for some
challenges."
Venice Mayor Ed Mart-
in expressed appreciation
for Black's many contribu-
tions to the city and its res-
idents in a prepared state-
ment released Thursday.
"Black did an excep-
tional job in his day-to-day
administration of the city,"
Martin said. "His foresight
in budgeting has reduced
the impact of declining tax
revenues."
"Marty has been dis-


Correction
The June 22 article
"Short-term rentals slat-
ed for extinction" mis-
quoted Council Mem-
ber Sue Lang, who said
"Venice's code needs to
include in its definition
of 'family,' a maximum
number of unrelated
adults" as a means to
limit occupancy. We
regret the error.


cussing with me the possi-
bility of moving on to new
challenges for the last four
or five months," Martin
wrote. "I expressed my
feeling that he had the
support of the city council,
but understood his inter-
est, after seven or eight
years in the city, to consid-
er his future options."
Herb Levine, president
of the Venice Taxpayers
League and a regular critic
during the public com-
ment portions of council
meetings, grudgingly gave
Black kudos for visiting
every department in city
government over the past
four years to make them


more efficient.
"He spent lots of time
seeing what the devil was
happening, and made lots
of changes, did some lay-
offs and did one hell of a
job of belt tightening to
point where when things
got bad, we were already
on course."
Where he faltered, Le-
vine said, was in "commu-
nicating with his new
bosses properly."
Next step
Martin said City At-
torney Robert Anderson
and City Clerk Lori Stelzer
will work with council on a
process to assure the effec-


tive operations of the city
and to hire a new city
manager, Johnson said in
a press release announc-
ing Black's retirement.
"Under the city's char-
ter, Mayor Ed Martin is
charged with nominating
a new city manager for
confirmation by the city
council. ... No timetable
or process has been an-
nounced at this time."
Black took the position
as city manager in Feb-
ruary 2004, after coming
to work for the city as the
assistant manager in Jan-
uary 2001.

OUR VIEW


The ship of state is losing its moorings


I n sports, the next thing that hap-
pens after a manager or coach gets
vote ofconfidence from his boss is
that he gets fired In a strange twist on
that phenomenon,Venice CityManager
Marty Black fired his bossesWednesday
despite their public expressions of sup-
port fhrhim and city staff
We can't blame him
Though city manager for only four-
plus years, Black has a strong record of
achievement dunng his tenure beach
renounshment, renovation of the Ven-
ice Community Center, rebuilding the
Venice Fishing Pier, new parks, resolv-
mg the cityslegal troubles over the dis-
posal of reclaimed water, getting back
on good terms with the Federal Aviaton
Administration, to name only a few His
forsight got the city through "tax re-
fonnrm" and aweak economywith fearless
turmoil than the county has expen-
enced
But his departure has been rumored
since November, when Ed Martin, Sue
Lang and Emlie Zavodnyik wereelected to
citycouncil on a slow-growth platform


He stayed on, and theyhaw done a
good job in some areas conducting a
thorough renew of the proposed new
comp plan,which the priorcouncil rub-
ber stamped, actng to regulate short-
term rentals, establishing an economic
development board
There were some eardybumps m the
road, as the new council members and
city staff got to know each other, and
marathon council meetings took their
toll Forawhile things appeared to have
been smoothed over, but more and
more it has seemed council has given
Black's advice little to no weight
He has pointed out consistently that
the FAAwants an airport plan to review,
and that the plan can be refined once
the agency makes its position known
Instead, council has sought FAAs opm-
ion on a "talking points" plan council
hasno thought of adopting It reminds
us of Mark Twain's comment about try-
ing to teach a pig to sing Its waste of
time and it annoys the pig
Months of meetings haven't gotten
us any closer to plan, just closer to the


FAAs deadline to submit one An exten-
sion wil be needed because we're basi-
cally back to square one hinng a new
consultant, which the city will have to
pay this time, to craft a plan when the
formnner consultant could have done a
revised one cheaper and quicker
Tuesday, the Airport Advisory Board
ran afoul of council for making similar
points, and was threatened wit aboli-
tion for not doing what it was told to do
- a heavy-handed political maneuver
we would not have expected from
council members who would have
roundlycritcizedtheirpredecessors far
such tactics- and nightly so
Then, of course, there is the lawsuit
about alleged violations of Florida's
open- meetings and public records laws
Some council members communicated
by e-mail about matters they can only
discuss in open meetings, some of
those e-mailshave been deleted instead
of preserved Time will tell what was
done innocently, what, if anything,
deceitfully
Did those things happen m previous


years Sure, council members are hu-
man, and the prevalence of communi-
cating by e-mail has made violating
Ionda's Sunshine Laws easy to do and
hard to monitor Again, though, its iron-
ic that the members who stressed pub-
lic input and open government in tear
recent campaigns are among those
caught in tiawelb oflitigaton (Council
members John Moore and John Sim-
monds are parties, too)
At best the lawsuit and any ethics
cases that may anse are a distraction, at
worst, some council members could be
punished, perhaps even removed from
office
In this context, Black's decision to
retire makes sense Theb est thing about
beating your head against the wall is
that it feels so good when you stop
Citcouncil nowhas two more major
pieces of business on its plate finding
someone who would want to step into
the void Black leaves, m these circum-
stances, and dealingwith an almost cer-
tam exodus of city staffing his wake
Its time for some betterleadership


Crude facts about


our government


MARY RAY RUPPEL
GUEST COLUMNIST


Recently Mallard Fill-
more gave us the following
voter profile "I think the
government is smarter
than tle people, people
shouldn't have a choice
about health insurance, or
a choice about school
vouchers, or a choice
about eating fattening
foods And, oh yeah, I'm
pro -choice"
Medicare fraud is now
up into the billions of dol-
lars -why2 Because virtu-
allyevery claim tfiat comes
across a bureaucratic desk
is approved and paid,
often without proper doc-
umentation
Figunng this out, the
Bush administration de-
vised a Medicare plan that
would be run by pnvate
industry Isn't itlogical that
pnvatehealth care compa-
nies would be more dili-
gent about their profits
than our government,
which has been known to
spend hundreds of dollars
per toilet seat2 Medicare
pays these companies so
much a month to get us
"out of their hair"
The plan in which I
enrolled indudes supple-
mental coverage and pre-
scriptions, my Medicare
premium is reduced and
there is no monthlypremi-
um Its a win-win situa-
tion
So why don't liberals
like it Two words social-
ized medicine, which they
now refer to as universal
health care Change the
names to confuse the
innocent
Now, the media are
screaming that Sen Mc-
Cam and Gov Crist have
"flip-flopped" overextend-
ing the drilling moraton-
um No, they are just lis-
tening to the people (us)
who pay their salanes and
want the drilling moraton-
um ended
As an average and trust-
ing American citizen, I too
hawebeen guiltyof assum-
ing that our politicians are
all rocket scientists and
know how to solve every
problem for us So, we just


sit back, say nothing and
let them screwup
Have you ever seen a
picture of the Arctic
National Wildhlife Refuge in
Alaska? It resembles Mars,
but is not as scenic Right
now our Gulf has a high
bactena level and we are
being advised to keep out
of the water I can imagine
what the eco-nuts would
be saying now if we'd
already started dnlling off-
shore here
Some extremely mpor-
tant elections are coming
up, and I am looking very
closdy at each and every
candidate on both sides of
the aisle
A local candidate that I
was favonng said he was
absolutely against drilling
offshore here He was
inundated with letters and
e-mails (me induded) that
that was not what we the
voterswanted He islisten-
mg to the peoplehewants
to serve We are sick of
being told that we have to
wait for alternate sources
The waiting game is over
- start drilling
One presidential candi-
date said she couldn't pull
out ofherlosing campaign
immediately because it
was too complicated How-
ever, she insisted that if she
were our president, she
would pull out of Iraq
immediately That isn't
complicated?
Another candidate
keeps calling fr "change"
Nothing specific mind
you, just change Maybe it
means that we will no
longer reverently place our
hands over our hearts
when we say the Pledge of
Alegiance
Seriously, folks, do you
want a president so unob-
servant that he fails to
notice in 20 years of at-
tendinghs church that the
pastor is less than patnot-
ict Wouldn't you notice if
your pastor said "God
damn Amenca," not "God
bless America?"
Politicians want our
votes We must listen to
them carefully rmad a great
deal about them and,
hopefully, make the right
choice After all, our
Founding Fathers struc-
tured a government for the
people and by the people
Today I heard that
comedian George Carin
died He once said it was
crazy lIrng m a country
whereyou dnve on a park-
way and park on a drrve-
way He always questioned

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Second-hand cake is no problem


Editor
If someonewants to choose whom they hire to repre-
sent their business, they should have that right I don't
think a dent's office would hire a toothless reception-
ist- is that discnmmaton?
I havebeen the subject of discnmination many times,
but I just persevered until I found an employer intelli-
gentenough to hiremebased on myskilsand personal-
ty, not mybody tpe Yet, iflI owned business, I would
neverhire a smoker
Smokers don'tjust smoke at home Theytake "bath-
room breaks" to smoke or go outside Theybnng back
the fetid odor of cigarette smoke for the rest of the staff
to enjoy all day Oh yum
Some vices do not affect other people directly If I
choose to consortwith giraffes dunng mypersonal time,
that's my busmess But smokers leave a trail of cigarette
butts all over our planet and poison their children with
the second-hand smoke, completelyoblrious to all ofit
I think the government has missed the mark here
Stop manufacturing cigarettes Don't saywe should stop
making cake mixes or booze, because both, in modera-
ton, do nothave an effecton innocent bystanders
By theway, Ihate cake and I don't dnnk
All cigarettes do is poison the lungs and air, and with
all of the medical advances to help people quit, I cannot
for the life of me understand why anyone would choose
this disgusting habit
I have to go pluck cigarette butts from my front lawnr
now

Life begins at 9
Editor
As recently as Apni 13,
Barack Hussein Obama
could not, or would not,
when asked, admit thatlife
begins at conception, to
do so would compromise
his eager pro- abortion po-
siton
If you feel my charac-
tenzation "eager" a little
harsh, perhapsyou should


know that he voted for
partial-birth abortion and
against care for any fetus
surviving abortion
However, while pander-
ing dunng a Father's Day

Stimulus from Red
Sox is needed
Editor
Sarasota is suffering
through one of the worst
economic slumps of my
lifetime, and yet there are
naysayers to the Boston
Red Sox making Sarasota
their home for Spring
Training
As the Fort Myors News
Press, their daily paper,
commented, This isn't just
some team"Theyhavehad
73 consecutive sellouts and
arm "the hottest spring-
training commodity in
Flonda orArzona,,
As the Fort Myers
County Parks and Rec-
reation director stated,
"The Red Sox are a big, big
business Its almost like
dealing with Microsoft or
General Motors"
Ifwe could use an eco-
nomic boost in Sarasota, it
is now, landing the Red
Sox will be fdt by all soe-
tions four Sarasota econ-


omy as we return to the
map as the place to be in
Florida
We do not have the
details as to what the sta-
drium will cost us, but I
believe that in terms of
jobs and taxes, we will
receive a greater return on
our investment than from
any other proposed eco-
nomic stimulus

Left in the dust, and not happy


Soul searching. I'm calling about the question,
Should the mining operations near the Venetian Golf
and River Club be made to reduce their impact on near-
by residents?, and I say, absolutely. I am one of those res-
idents. I would not only hold the mining operations cul-
pable, but I believe the city ofVenice has to do some hard
looking into its soul about how it protects the health and
safety of its citizens.


Dead right. I fear for
unconscious bicyclists. I
realize there are more bicy-
clists on the road, but as an
auto driver, I can tell you
that we have not caught up
to the fact that we must be
very cautious of their
whereabouts. I almost hit
one today turning right on a
red light coming out of
Mission Valley Boulevard
onto Laurel Road. The bicy-
clist did not stop at the light
but sailed through it head-
ing east on Laurel Road.
Seeing no cars coming, I
pulled out just when he was
crossing and braked sud-
denly to avoid hitting him.
He turned and tapped his
forehead as if to say, "Use
your head, dummy." How-
ever, another car, which

The truth about smokers


BRETT SLATTERY
GUEST COLUMNIST


One frosty morning, my
wife, Deb, and I were
standing on a very hectic
sidewalk outside Pitts-
burgh's airport terminal.
Deb was smoking.
A scruffy-looking per-
son approached her to
bum a cigarette. I gave her
that "one step closer to my
wife and away you go"
look. Suddenly, my wife's
face lit up as she reached
into her purse and gave
the stranger a Salem Light
and a smile warm enough
to melt the ice.
There's a truth about
smokers you can't ignore.
I'm not a smoker. Deb
is. That gives me a ticket to
explore the unique culture
that bonds smokers
together.
First of all, they know
they are all but banished,
and they know the
momentum is not on their
side.
People are very, very
guarded at airports today.
Conversation and eye con-
tact are held to a mini-
mum. The heavy presence
of homeland security eras-
es any doubt that the guy
next to you may be plot-
ting to kill us all. Even my
wife has been detained
because her lotion con-
tains glycerin.
Still, many airports


maintain an oasis of old-
fashioned neighborliness
that mainstream travelers
shun. It's nearly a secret
cult of travelers who dare
to walk through an
obscurely marked door
that is labeled in such a
way to repel us normal
people. Usually it's just
one word: "Smokers."
I buried my Mom
Saturday in the Mohave
Desert. She was a smoker,
but she stopped and died
peacefully in her sleep
many years later of natural
causes. The next day, my
wife and I were standing
outside the smoker's
"lounge" of Concourse C
at Atlanta's very busy air-
port.
I did not accompany
my wife into the smoking
lounge because I didn't
want to expose my Nikon
to the second-hand smoke
one might expect from
dozens of heavy puffers
recovering from hours of
FAA-mandated withdraw-
al. So I headed instead to
return some unread mag-
azines I had purchased
there three days earlier.
The clerk got a good laugh
at that and I still have the
magazines.
When I returned to the
smoking lounge, I noticed
something that set these
people far apart from most
travelers. Through the
front glass walls and a
thick haze of smoke, I saw
my wife laughing as she
was happily engaged in
conversation with her fel-
low smokers. In stark con-
trast to the rest of the ter-
minal, the atmosphere
was light, fun and airy as
many strangers were act-
ing like long-lost friends.
Deb told me about a
gratifying experience she


was privy to in that lounge
while Mr. Frugality was
returning magazines.
Across the room from
her, she overheard an
older lady who dressed
and spoke like a Southern
belle. A black gentleman,
exuding hip-hop coolness,
walked through the door
and sat down to strike a
smoke.
"You were on my
plane," she blurted out.
Without missing a beat,
they began a lively conver-
sation punctuated with
smiling faces that you
might expect from best
friends.
And when the workday
is done, Deb tells me there
are two directions employ-
ees take. The majority
make a beeline for their
cars. The smokers gather
beneath shade trees out-
side the rear entrance.
They spend an extra 10
minutes or so recapping
the day, decompressing,
sharing support and
insights, and frequently
end the workday with
hugs and well wishes.
I hope my wife quits
smoking. Calling it a bad
habit is an understate-
ment.
But if you can separate
the addicted from the
addiction, you will see a
class of people that seems
much more open and
adept at engaging and
enjoying those who cross
their paths.

smoker married to a
smoker You can contact

POLICE BEAT
Transient arrested
At 2:05 p.m. Wednesday,
Venice police officers were
dispatched to the city
beach regarding a suspi-
cious man who had been
hanging around the pavil-
ion area for the last few
days. The man was located
and identified as Jason
Hill, 18, a transient. At the
time of this encounter no
criminal activity was re-
ported.
At 3:16 p.m. an officer
was again dispatched to
the beach, this time re-
garding an auto burglary
that had taken place about
an hour before the call was
dispatched. Items worth
about $1,000 were taken.
A detective sergeant
who was monitoring radio
transmissions remem-
bered that Hill had been
arrested a couple of days
earlier for the theft of a bike,
responded to the call and
located Hill at the BP gas
station, where he was buy-
ing cigarettes for some juve-
niles. Hill was questioned
and admitted to the auto
burglary, providing specif-
ic information about the
burglary as well as the loca-
tion of the stolen items. All
the items were located and
returned to their owner.
While being interview-
ed, the owner of the BP
station recognized Hill as
the perpetrator of a shop-
lifting the night before.
During further interviews,
Hill admitted to stealing
several vehicles while en
route to Florida from Ohio.
Hill was arrested on
charges of petit theft from
a merchant, third-degree
grand theft and burglary of
a conveyance. Bond was


set at $11,120.

Police search for

weapon in Lee case

Woods where body found scoured
by law enforcement officers.


BY ELAINE
ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT EDITOR

A female officer ran
from the brush. Seconds
later, another officer ap-
peared after capturing a
rattlesnake in an area they
were searching Tuesday.
About 40 law enforce-
ment officers from North
Port, Venice, Charlotte and
Sarasota counties, the FBI
and Florida Department
of Law Enforcement walk-
ed through woods and
ponds off Toledo Blade
Boulevard near Interstate
75, looking for the gun
used to kill Denise Amber
Lee, 21. They were mindful
of snakes, cows and other
wildlife in the brush.
North Port resident Mi-
chael King, 37, was arrest-
ed and charged with Lee's
kidnapping, rape and
murder. His trial is set for
November. Prosecutors
are seeking the death pen-
alty.
Several times, North


Port investigators have
searched the woods where
Lee's body was found.
Police know King went to a
Nokomis gun range Jan. 17
on the morning of the
murder. He was also an
avid woodsman who knew
the North Port area.
When arrested minutes
away from the burial site,
King was soaked from the
waist down and had a
shovel in his car.
In past interviews,
North Port Police Lt. De-
tective Kevin Sullivan, who
was onsite Tuesday, said
officers have come togeth-
er to help in any way pos-
sible.
"It's a brotherhood," he
said. "We make the call
and they are here for us. If
another agency needs us,
we will be there."
Police would not com-
ment about the outcome
of Tuesday's search be-
cause it is an active investi-
gation.

football
training
camps get into full swing,
coaches and young athletes
should take notice of
updated on-field treatment
guidelines for players with
suspected neck injuries. This
new recommendation, which
pertains to 8- to 14-year-olds,
urges that both helmet and
shoulder pads be kept on the injured
athlete for initial stabilization and
support and removed when the
patient is in a controlled setting.
Because skeletal proportions are
different in children than adults
(children have larger heads than
torsos), researchers wondered
whether the disproportion would
result in a different recom-
mendation, such as removing the
helmet only. However, an x-ray
study of 31 boys showed that
wearing shoulder pads alone
resulted in unacceptable
alignment changes that placed the
patient at risk.

Phortists


BY JERRY WOELFEL
GUEST WRITER


J uly 17, 2004, Barron Col-
lier Inn, Useppa Island,
Fla. the date of the cre-
ation of the group that
would forever be known as the
"Phartists."
It is my distinct pleasure to
introduce you to the photogra-
phers and artists thus, the
Phartists: Maureen and Chuck
Snyder, Mary Jo and Jack Perk-
ins, John and Suzie Seerey-Lest-
er and Bob and Jerry Woelfel.
Eight individuals who, for some
unknown reason, think they can
travel together to various loca-
tions to photograph and/or
paint the many wonders of na-
ture they encounter along the
way.
The Phartists are eight very
different personalities who look
at various scenes, objects or
events and interpret them in
very different ways. Six of the
eight are very talented in their
own right, while two of us -
Chuck Snyder and Jerry Woelfel
- lay no claim whatsoever to
being talented at all. At least six
of them cringe every time their


group's "name" is pronounced
in public.
I will start with an introduc-
tion of the three photographers.
Although Suzie Seerey-Lester
and Bob Woelfel are indeed gift-
ed and quite good photogra-
phers, both of them also paint
so I will "introduce" them later.
Maureen Snyder and Jack Perk-
ins are truly the talented ones
and use their photos to produce
some very unique and extraor-
dinary art pieces.
Photographer No. 1 is Mau-
reen Snyder, wife of Chuck and
mother of three boys (now
grown men and on their own,
thus allowing Maureen the time
to pursue her own interests).
With a bachelor's degree in art
and textile/apparel design from
the University of Wisconsin, she
combines her extraordinary
photography with her design
skills and creates an entirely
new and unique form of art she
calls "photoart."
Maureen takes her digital
photographs, prints selected
photographs on silk and hand-
beads and embroiders parts of
the image, sometimes with gor-
geous Swarovski crystals. She

PHARTIST LECTURES AND CLASSES
All events are at 10:30 a.m. at the Venice Art Center, 390 S.
Nokomis Ave., for one hour, unless otherwise noted. Call 485-
7136 to confirm.
July 2: Artistic Photo Canvas will demonstrate its process of print-
ing your photos on canvas in a "wrap fashion," giving the photos
the appearance of an actual painting.
July 9: Jack Perkins, a photographer and poet who has combined
these arts in two books, will do a presentation projecting the pho-
tographs as he reads the accompanying poems. He will also sign
copies of his latest books.
July 16: Suzie Seerey-Lester, author of the new book, "My
Painting Is Finished, Now What Do I Do?," will talk about how an
artist can market, prepare for shows, keep inventories and gener-
ally get on top of the business aspects of the art world.
July 23: Photographic Field Workshop on the beach of beauti-
ful Casey Key, Maureen Snyder and Jack Perkins conduct a full-
day, informative workshop for photographers from the novice to
the experienced. The morning will consist of shooting varied
scenes and the afternoon of working those images up on comput-
er and printing. Inquire at the Art Center, 485-7136, for further
information and to sign up.
July 30: Painting Useppa Island and Legendary Hunts John
Seerey-Lester does an illustration on the paintings he created for
his fascinating book on the history of Useppa Island and also his
latest body of work, capturing moments of great historic big game
hunts of the past. He will sign copies of the book.
Aug. 6: Creating Your Slideshow Bob Woelfel will take you
through the process of assembling your photographs and from
them creating a DVD-based presentation of the work for people to
share and enjoy.


SEE THEIR ART
You can meet the Phartists
June 27 at the Venice Art
Center, where their artwork,
photography and books will
be displayed until Aug. 15.


then mats the finished piece
and frames it.
All phases I will repeat
that all phases of the process
she actually does herself in her
studio on Casey Key where she
lives.
If you are ever given the op-
portunity to go over and look at
some of her photoart work,
make sure you also ask to see
the various other artistic en-
deavors she is involved with.
One item I especially like is her
hand-painted dishes and glass-
ware items for every holiday
and occasion.
Perspective
Photographer No. 2 is Jack
Perkins. Jack worked for 40
years in TV, first as a correspon-
dent for NBC News, then as a
host of the acclaimed A&E ser-
ies "Biography" and currently as
the host for the local show
"Suncoast Journal." Now living
here in Florida, he is traveling
worldwide to capture his im-
ages.
Jack produces extraordinary
photographic images and he
uses his photography to form a
backdrop for his literary works.
Most of you know Jack from his
TV career rather than as a writ-
er, but you need to take a look
at the beautiful works of art he
has created by combining his
digital photography with his
writing.
In creating such books as "Is-
land Prayers: Photographs and
Poems of Praise," he leads you,
with each book and set of pho-
tographs, to a calm and restful
place.
I am the beginner in the
crowd and simply use a point-
and-shoot digital camera to
capture what I think are some
unusual pictures that are used
for absolutely nothing other
than to drive my husband crazy
since he does not usually like
the perspective that I take them
from.
Brushing up
Our artists are John and Su-
zie Seerey-Lester, Mary Jo Perk-
ins, the beginner in the group,
Bob Woelfel, and, most recently,
Chuck Snyder.
John and Suzie Seerey-Lester
are well known in our commu-
nity for their support of com-
munity endeavors with their
continuous contributions of
wonderful gifts of their art.
John, being a world-renown-
ed wildlife artist, has been very
successful in turning his wife,
Suzie, into an awarding-win-
ning artist in her own right.
John and Suzie now both
travel worldwide and exhibit
their award-winning art and
teach their skills to the very se-
lect few who are lucky enough
to be able to attend their class-
es. They are masters in the art of
plein air painting painting
done outside rather than in a
studio which is particularly
influenced by the changing light
of outdoors on color.


John has produced
multiple books, calen-
dars and training videos,
and of course has had
his images used in a
multitude of ways. Suzie
has just recently written
and had published her
book, "My Painting is a
Finished, Now What Do I
Do?," a step-by-step
guide to all aspects of

Church celebrates child ministry and

preschool founder's 25th anniversary


FROM THE VENICE
NOKOMIS UNITED
METHODIST CHURCH

The Venice Nokomis
United Methodist Child
Care Center recently cele-
brated its 25th anniversary.
The preschool began in
1983 with a staff of four,
and now has 10 employees
offering care to 50 students.
The founding director,


Barbara Zier, was recog-
nized recently for her 25
years of service. Preschool
board members Lynn
Bauereiss, chairperson,
and Beverly Miller, trea-
surer, presented Zier with
a glass and silver clock.
Zier presented the church
with a commemorative
plaque in celebration of 25
years of ministry to young
children.


The preschool offers
care to 2-, 3- and 4-year-
olds, and will soon begin
its fourth year of free vol-
untary pre-kindergarten
classes sponsored by the
state of Florida. The 15
hours of free preschool are
provided to Florida resi-
dents whose children turn
4 by Sept. 1. For more infor-
mation, contact Barbara
Zier at 484-4415.

Board member Beverly Miller, center, and Pastor Ralph Burton paid tribute recently to Barbara
Zier, left, for her service to Venice Nokomis United Methodist Church's child care center.

Current market yields bargain prices

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


If ever there was a time to buy
it is now.
Coldwell Banker Residen-
tial Realtor Jan Holloway has the
proof a two-bedroom, two-
bath condo, furnished with
newer furniture, which she has
listed for just $115,000 on the
island of Venice and just two
blocks to the beach.
Three years ago, there would
have been a bidding war at
twice that price for this or
anything reasonably close in
size. At this price, given the
location and condition, it is a
bargain and good as a rental
investment and/or second
home. Unlike some condo-
miniums, which have three-
month limitations on renting,
this one can be rented by the
month.
Located at 210 N. Park Blvd.,
just north of Tampa Avenue,
the unit is on the second floor
of the freshly landscaped com-
plex known as Bristol North. It
includes a separate storage
locker very close to the west-
facing apartment.
Each bedroom has its own
bathroom. The 11-foot by 15-
foot master bedroom has a
walk-in tiled shower and the
second bath features a tub.
The master bedroom has a
walk-in closet and the other
bedroom also has spacious
storage.
The 793-square-foot layout
has a compact kitchen with
abundant storage, newer white
appliances and white counters.
Bathrooms have ceramic tile.
There is newer Berber carpeting
in most of the apartment.
Furniture and window treat-


SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL
The living area features room for a dining table and large sofa plusTV and additional seating.


ments are included in the price.
A monthly maintenance fee
covers such things as mainte-
nance of the common areas,
insurance on building and
grounds, landscaping, water
and sewer and trash removal
and cable TV
A motivated seller has
dropped the price from $139,000
to $129,000 and finally to
$115,000 for the condo, which is
move-in or renter ready.
For an appointment to see the
condominium, call Holloway at
483-6699.


FRIDAY
JUNE 27, 2008


There is ample
resident and
guest parking
within the
Bristol North
complex.

Prestige cars of another era Packard


he dark-green
1938 Packard 12-
cylinder Victoria 5
passenger convertible
evolved from a very
small company in
Warren, Ohio, which
built the first Packard
automobile in 1899. Two
years later, the firm was
moved to Detroit and
remained there until it
dissolved in 1958. Those
59 years took the com-
pany through three
major wars and the
Depression, all that time
turning out top-quality
autos. So much so that
right up until 1942, they
were probably the most
recognized prestige
vehicle made in Ameri-
ca. Their slogan, "Ask the
man who owns one !"
was used in magazine
ads for years. That's how
much confidence the
manufacturer had.
A total of less than 600
12-cylinder-equipped
Packards were made in
1938, of which only a few
were part of the Victoria
Series seen here with
owner Tracy Rudolph of
Punta Gorda. He and his
wife, Diane, have two
major hobbies- boats
and old cars, but not
necessarily in that order.
They also have one
offspring, a daughter
who is a doctor. Rudolph,
a retired chairman of the
board of a successful
140-branch bank doing
business mainly in
Houston, always loved
cars, especially fancy
"open" convertibles.
When he officially retired
after 40 years in that
field, he and Diane really
became active i.-.. 4.1 '
with old cars. In addition
to this almost three-ton
elegant Packard they
have here in Florida, they
have a 1959 Ford
retractable convertible
and a "hot" 1969 Olds
442 Topless model.
Back in Texas, there's
Diane's favorite, a 1957
Cadillac Eldo Biarritz
convertible, plus a 1963
Caddy Eldorado CV and
a 1957 Ford retractable.
Each is restored and
both drive them when
time permits. This
couple also had, up until
February, an all-original
1959 Edsel Convertible
which is now in the DCR
"Orphan" car minicol-
lection. Ever see one?
Bet not! We only own
autos no longer made
and like them for that
reason.
The Rudolphs have a
yacht, a new Grady
White, which gets far
more use in season than
their previous Hatteras.
It's beautiful and fancy


but can't bring a gleam
in Tracy's eye like the big
elegant Packard. Big is
the only word to
describe its size, a 134-
inch wheelbase, almost
20 feet long, chair-height
seats, 12 cylinders
totaling 473 cubic
inches, cranking out
175-torque-filled horse-
power. Miles per gallon?
Don't ask!
The other Packard is a
stunning, maroon 1948
Club Sedan, proudly
owned by Bill Denton,
who grew up in south-
western Michigan and is
now a Charlotte County
resident in the Deep
Creek area. This gentle-
man is known in the old
car hobby as "Mr.
Denton" because he was
a former teacher, princi-
pal and school adminis-
trator. That's the title he
had then and I gave him
a couple of years ago.
Surely all of us remem-
ber addressing men in
his profession as "Mis-
ter." We also said "Yes,
sir," "Yes, ma'am," "may I
... please ... thank you"
and so on. Times have
changed, but not this
fellow as he quietly gets
respect by having the
elegant Packard with
him at shows and cruise
ins. The mention of
being an owner of one of
these autos sets you
apart in the old days and
even now. They had
snob appeal, yet in a
friendly practical way.
When this car came out
in 1948, it was nick-
named "The Pregnant
Elephant" by the auto-
motive press because of
the large, rounded, 77-
inch-wide design. That
year, 92,000 sold to post-
war upper-middle-class
people with cash money
saved for a new car
during the period when
there were very few
dealers of any make with
inventory. Its engine, a
straight 8, developed 130
horsepower, ample
enough to propel the
3,770-pound car to high
double digits. This
particular version had a
base price of $2,517,
about double that of a
same-year Ford V8. Note
base price usually did
not cover the cost of a
heater, turn signals nor a
radio. Air conditioning,
no problem, open the
push-up cowl vent,

crank the vent panes
forward and wind the
windows down. Oh,
those good ole days!
Mr. Denton's Packard
serves him well, provid-
ing a lot of fun and
"tinkering." I almost
forgot, he purchased this
car sight unseen over the
phone from a retired
doctor who resides in
Battle Creek, Mich. Said
physician was reducing
his collection, advertised
it in a hobby magazine
where Mr. D. read the
description, a set of
photos followed, and
love at first sight set in.
The rest is history. You'll
see this now-rare
machine (as my mother
used to say) around
public events soon
during Christmas in July,
at the Cultural Center of
Charlotte County,
Saturday, July 12 or most
likely Sunday.
Summers in our area
of the Sunshine State are
not very conducive to
the old car hobby.
They're hot and muggy,
with the rain or threat of
rain drying up shows,
cruise ins, tours and
other outings where
vintage autos normally
appear the other eight
months of the year.
Several times, I've
mentioned Hemmings
Motor News, which is
available at most book-
stores, namely Books a
Million or in the maga-
zine section at Wal-Mart.
Even some of the auto
parts stores are carrying
this informative publica-
tion. It has so many
pages, ads and brief
stories that will literally
consume an entire
evening (sometimes
night, too) and possibly


PHOTO PROVIDED BY JERRY RISELEY


interfere with a man's
family or social life.
Subscribers know what I
mean!
Another very impor-
tant hobby magazine is
Kelly's Cruise News of
P.O. Box 681805, Orlan-
do, Fl. 32868-1805. One
can only subscribe by
mailing a check or
money order in the
amount of $18 along
with your name, address
and phone number. That
will get you 12 issues a
year. Allow four to six
weeks for delivery. Their
telephone number is
407-290-3026. No one
else in Florida lists more
auto events, parts and
service sources than
Mike Kelly. Spend the
money and you'll learn
what's going on, where
and when, probably
saving more than the
cost in gas. This Wheels
Column will continue to
offer information

Prestige cars of another era Packard


he dark-green
1938 Packard 12-
cylinder Victoria 5
passenger convertible
evolved from a very
small company in
Warren, Ohio, which
built the first Packard
automobile in 1899. Two
years later, the firm was
moved to Detroit and
remained there until it
dissolved in 1958. Those
59 years took the com-
pany through three
major wars and the
Depression, all that time
turning out top-quality
autos. So much so that
right up until 1942, they
were probably the most
recognized prestige
vehicle made in Ameri-
ca. Their slogan, "Ask the
man who owns one !"
was used in magazine
ads for years. That's how
much confidence the
manufacturer had.
A total of less than 600
12-cylinder-equipped
Packards were made in
1938, of which only a few
were part of the Victoria
Series seen here with
owner Tracy Rudolph of
Punta Gorda. He and his
wife, Diane, have two
major hobbies- boats
and old cars, but not
necessarily in that order.
They also have one
offspring, a daughter
who is a doctor. Rudolph,
a retired chairman of the
board of a successful
140-branch bank doing
business mainly in
Houston, always loved
cars, especially fancy
"open" convertibles.
When he officially retired
after 40 years in that
field, he and Diane really
became active i.-.. 4.1 '
with old cars. In addition
to this almost three-ton
elegant Packard they
have here in Florida, they
have a 1959 Ford
retractable convertible
and a "hot" 1969 Olds
442 Topless model.
Back in Texas, there's
Diane's favorite, a 1957
Cadillac Eldo Biarritz
convertible, plus a 1963
Caddy Eldorado CV and
a 1957 Ford retractable.
Each is restored and
both drive them when
time permits. This
couple also had, up until
February, an all-original
1959 Edsel Convertible
which is now in the DCR
"Orphan" car minicol-
lection. Ever see one?
Bet not! We only own
autos no longer made
and like them for that
reason.
The Rudolphs have a
yacht, a new Grady
White, which gets far
more use in season than
their previous Hatteras.
It's beautiful and fancy


but can't bring a gleam
in Tracy's eye like the big
elegant Packard. Big is
the only word to
describe its size, a 134-
inch wheelbase, almost
20 feet long, chair-height
seats, 12 cylinders
totaling 473 cubic
inches, cranking out
175-torque-filled horse-
power. Miles per gallon?
Don't ask!
The other Packard is a
stunning, maroon 1948
Club Sedan, proudly
owned by Bill Denton,
who grew up in south-
western Michigan and is
now a Charlotte County
resident in the Deep
Creek area. This gentle-
man is known in the old
car hobby as "Mr.
Denton" because he was
a former teacher, princi-
pal and school adminis-
trator. That's the title he
had then and I gave him
a couple of years ago.
Surely all of us remem-
ber addressing men in
his profession as "Mis-
ter." We also said "Yes,
sir," "Yes, ma'am," "may I
... please ... thank you"
and so on. Times have
changed, but not this
fellow as he quietly gets
respect by having the
elegant Packard with
him at shows and cruise
ins. The mention of
being an owner of one of
these autos sets you
apart in the old days and
even now. They had
snob appeal, yet in a
friendly practical way.
When this car came out
in 1948, it was nick-
named "The Pregnant
Elephant" by the auto-
motive press because of
the large, rounded, 77-
inch-wide design. That
year, 92,000 sold to post-
war upper-middle-class
people with cash money
saved for a new car
during the period when
there were very few
dealers of any make with
inventory. Its engine, a
straight 8, developed 130
horsepower, ample
enough to propel the
3,770-pound car to high
double digits. This
particular version had a
base price of $2,517,
about double that of a
same-year Ford V8. Note
base price usually did
not cover the cost of a
heater, turn signals nor a
radio. Air conditioning,
no problem, open the
push-up cowl vent,

crank the vent panes
forward and wind the
windows down. Oh,
those good ole days!
Mr. Denton's Packard
serves him well, provid-
ing a lot of fun and
"tinkering." I almost
forgot, he purchased this
car sight unseen over the
phone from a retired
doctor who resides in
Battle Creek, Mich. Said
physician was reducing
his collection, advertised
it in a hobby magazine
where Mr. D. read the
description, a set of
photos followed, and
love at first sight set in.
The rest is history. You'll
see this now-rare
machine (as my mother
used to say) around
public events soon
during Christmas in July,
at the Cultural Center of
Charlotte County,
Saturday, July 12 or most
likely Sunday.
Summers in our area
of the Sunshine State are
not very conducive to
the old car hobby.
They're hot and muggy,
with the rain or threat of
rain drying up shows,
cruise ins, tours and
other outings where
vintage autos normally
appear the other eight
months of the year.
Several times, I've
mentioned Hemmings
Motor News, which is
available at most book-
stores, namely Books a
Million or in the maga-
zine section at Wal-Mart.
Even some of the auto
parts stores are carrying
this informative publica-
tion. It has so many
pages, ads and brief
stories that will literally
consume an entire
evening (sometimes
night, too) and possibly


PHOTO PROVIDED BY JERRY RISELEY


interfere with a man's
family or social life.
Subscribers know what I
mean!
Another very impor-
tant hobby magazine is
Kelly's Cruise News of
P.O. Box 681805, Orlan-
do, Fl. 32868-1805. One
can only subscribe by
mailing a check or
money order in the
amount of $18 along
with your name, address
and phone number. That
will get you 12 issues a
year. Allow four to six
weeks for delivery. Their
telephone number is
407-290-3026. No one
else in Florida lists more
auto events, parts and
service sources than
Mike Kelly. Spend the
money and you'll learn
what's going on, where
and when, probably
saving more than the
cost in gas. This Wheels
Column will continue to
offer information

Mother concerned about crazy son's antics


Dear Tom and Ray:
My crazy son is 20 years old. He has
been a mechanic since the day he was
bom. I am afraid his most recent project
will be the death of him, and I am
desperately seeking your
opinion/advice. He has taken a 1989 VW
Golf and moved the motor from its
proper location under the hood to the
back seat. Yes, you read that right. He
has installed the motor in the passenger
compartment, so the vehicle is now a
rear-engine (or mid-engine, he says) car.
It is monstrously loud and monstrously
fuime-y. In a concession to his mother,
he wears earplugs while driving it, but
when he enters the room after driving
the car, he trails a cloud of exhaust
fumes. I have begged him to at least
install a fire shield around the engine,
but my pleas are falling on deaf ears
(literally, soon, I'm afraid). Now you
know why I think he is crazy. Please give
me some advice or ammunition that I
can use to beat some sense into him. I
am very much afraid of the health
hazards that he has created for himself.
What do you say? -Ann
RAY: Ann, you poor thing. I'm sure our
late mother would have felt your pain.
Like her, you have the misfortune of
having a son who's a nutjob.
TOM: Yeah, my mom had a terrible
time with my brother.
RAY: I was talking about you.
TOM: Me??
RAY: Yeah. But unlike MY mother's
nutjob, you have a very clever and
talented nutjob, Ann! I mean, he's
managed to engineer himself a cheapo
Porsche. And he's done it at least so
far without asphyxiating himself,
setting himself on fire, crashing the car
or digging a 2-inch groove in the back of
his head with the newly repositioned
fan belt.
TOM: And sometimes, if these nutjobs
manage to live long enough, they're the
ones who come up with brilliant inven-
tions, or do things that more normal,
non-wacko people would never think of.
RAY: You can try crying, Ann. That's
what our mother did. And it worked
some of the time. But at age 20, there's
not a whole lot you can do. Any mis-
takes you made raising him are now
permanently seared into his personality.
TOM: So if crying doesn't work, buy
him a crash helmet, a flame-proof suit
and some fire extinguishers for his
birthday. Then insist that he drive with
the windows open, hope he survives,
does something to benefit humanity
and has the decency to shower before
dinner. Good luck.

Coolant leak
has reader puzzled
Dear Tom and Ray:
I drive a 2002 Subam Outback. During
this past winter, we had a significant
cold snap where I live, with tempera-
tures below zero. After the first day of
the cold snap, I noticed a puddle of
coolant on the floor of my garage. So I
visited a local mechanic who specializes
in radiators. He attached some sort of
pressure gadget and pumped it up.
According to him, there was no indica-
tion of a leak. He looked around a bit -
without crawling underneath the
vehicle and said he just wasn't sure
there was a problem. So, he topped off
the coolant and I returned home.
Everything was fine, until we had our
next cold snap. Once again, I noticed a
puddle of gooey green stuff. Now that
the weather is warmer, it's fine again.
What's going on? -Vicky
RAY: I'm guessing that whatever it is,
Vicky, it's caused by shrinkage. We know
things shrink when they're cold, right?
(See also: George Costanza.)
TOM: If it's something serious, it will
eventually start to leak regardless of the
temperature.
RAY: My first guess would be a loose
hose clamp. The mbber coolant hoses
are clamped onto metal fittings under
the hood, and there are lots of them. If
one of those hose clamps is just barely
tight enough, and that fitting is shrink-
ing in the extreme cold, that could be
enough to allow some coolant to leak
out.
TOM: Then, when the temperature
rises and the fitting expands back to its
normal size, everything's fine again.
RAY: Of course, it could be something
much more lugubrious, like a failing
water pump, or even a bad head gasket.
TOM: But here's where we'd start.
First, have your guy check it again with
the engine cold. You'll need to leave it
overnight so he can pressurize it first
thing in the morning, before the
engine has run. If a pressure test on a
cold engine turns up nothing, then I'd
have him check and tighten all of your
hose clamps, including the ones that


feed the heater, on. He doesn't believe me. Since we

around 50 miles after the light comes up his blood pressure), drive until the


low-fuel light comes on. Then go to a
gas station and fill the tank all the way
up.
RAY: Now, subtract the amount the
tank took from your fuel tank capacity.
In other words, if the tank holds 16
gallons, and you just filled it up all the
way with 14 gallons, you know there are
two gallons in reserve when the light
comes on.
TOM: You may want to run this
experiment several times to maximize
your data and minimize the measure-
ment error.
RAY: Now, how far will that remaining
gasoline take you? It depends on the
actual quantity of gas, your gas mileage,
and what kind of driving you're doing.
TOM: But you know that however
many miles you can go until empty,
your husband will still be freaking out.
Some people are just less inclined to
enjoy surprises. Especially when they
involve getting stranded and passing
through the digestive systems of wolves.
RAY: So, for his sake, fill it up before
the light comes on. Or, at least, soon
after. Don't torture the poor guy, Liesa -
as enjoyable as that may sometimes be.

BMW adds another sport activity model


By ANN M. JOB
FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
The 2008 BMW X6 is not a sport
utility vehicle at least according to
the people at BMW.
Officials at the German maker of
sporty luxury cars, who have insisted
for years that their high-riding, all-
wheel drive X3 and X5 models are
sport activity vehicles not hated
SUVs want the new X6 to be known
as a sport activity coupe.
Good luck with that.
Based on the X5, the X6 sets pas-
sengers up above the pavement and
is longer and heavier than a Hummer
H3.
Even though the X6 roof is rounder
than that on the X5, there's still an X6
liftgate and up to 60 cubic feet of
space in a flat, SUV-like cargo area,
albeit with a lot plusher carpet than
in most SUVs.
Fuel mileage for the X6 is definitely
in SUV territory at just 15 miles per
gallon in city driving and 20 mpg on
the highway for the twin-
turbocharged, six-cylinder X6 and
13/18 mpg for the X6 with V-8,
according to the federal government
ratings.
Starting manufacturer's suggested
retail price, including destination
charge, is $53,275 for a base 2008 X6
xDrive35i with 300-horsepower six-
cylinder. A 2008 X6 xDrive50i with
400-horsepower V-8 starts at $63,775.
All X6s come with standard all-wheel
drive and automatic transmission.
Note the starting retail price for the
X6 is $6,600 more than that for the
X5. It's also $14,000 pricier than the
2008 Infiniti EX, which is another
sporty, luxury SUV
Yes, the X6 has only four seats like a
sport coupe would.
And for all its bulk the X6 weighs
some 2.5 tons it reacts with sur-
prisingly quick power.
For example, the 0-to-60-miles-per-


2008 BMW X6 xDrive35i
BASE PRICE: $52,500.
AS TESTED: $56,275.
TYPE: Front-engine, all-wheel drive, four-
passenger, mid-size sport utility vehicle.
ENGINE: 3-liter, direct injection, twin-
turbocharged, inline six cylinder.
MILEAGE: 15 mpg (city),
20 mpg (highway).

hour time for the six-cylinder vehicle
is a noteworthy 6.5 seconds. It's an
even sportier 5.3 seconds for the X6
with 4.4-liter, twin-turbocharged V-8.
The tester with 3-liter, direct-
injection, twin-turbocharged, inline
six cylinder produces 300 foot-
pounds of torque starting at a low,
1,400 rpm. It moved forward smooth-
ly in city traffic and on the highway. It
was easy to pass other vehicles, too,
on country roads, and the instant zip
was satisfying.
It was difficult to keep this BMW
within residential street speed limits,
because the power came on so
readily.
The X6 with V-8 and 450 foot-
pounds of torque starting at 1,750
rpm is even more eager to rush
forward with just a slight push of the
accelerator pedal.
A six-speed automatic gearbox is in
both versions of X6 and worked with
silken precision in the test vehicle.
The transmission was so well-pro-
grammed in shifting in regular
automatic mode, I didn't feel much
need to use the shift-it-yourself
mode, though it's included.
Steering in this 16-foot-long BMW
was responsive, and while road
bumps came through via the 19-inch
tires, the sensation was of the vehicle
rolling over the top of them, not
clunking heavily or shuddering.
Still, it's difficult to shake the
feeling that there's a lot of mass that
the X6 suspension has to manage,
especially in aggressive curves and


TOP SPEED: 130 mph.
LENGTH: 192 inches.
WHEELBASE: 115.5 inches.
CURB WEIGHT: 4,894 pounds.
BUILT AT: Spartanburg, S.C.
OPTIONS: Technology package (includes
navigation system and rearview monitor)
$2,000; keyless start and entry $1,000.
DESTINATION CHARGE: $775.

turns, and a driver doesn't expect the
agility that the X6 can exhibit.
Tires gripped the pavement tightly
on the test vehicle, as a new electron-
ically controlled dynamic perfor-
mance control (DPC) adjusted how
much torque went to each wheel.
DPC isn't the same as electronic
stability control, which is on many
cars and is designed to avert skids by
monitoring the car's direction and
where the steering wheel is pointed
and then applying braking power to
the necessary wheels.
In an opposite approach to stability
control, DPC allows a driver to
maintain good speed in curves by
automatically adjusting which wheels
can safely get and use more power
and still maintain the proper direc-
tion. DPC is bound to be a hit with
enthusiast drivers, but regular drivers
likely may notice DPC.
On-road capabilities for the X6 are
complemented by BMW's xDrive all-
wheel drive system that automatically
adjusts power between front and rear
axles when roads are slippery.
As for off-roading, BMW doesn't
anticipate much of that for the X6,


which rides a bit lower to the ground
than the X5 does. The company
doesn't even list ground clearance for
the X6 in the vehicle press kit.
The labeling of the X6 isn't the only
debatable issue. I could do without
all the "x's" in the name, as in X6
xDrive35i. And while the flowing
styling of the top half of the X6
reminds me of a coupe, once my eye
went lower, to the hulking metal
below and the big tires and wheels, it
was difficult to visualize anything but
SUV.
The jumbled styling mix continued
in the interior where the X6 tester
seemed like a regular BMW luxury
car, save for its higher-than-usual
seat height and cargo area that sits up
a good way from the pavement and is
pinched a bit by the roofline.
Be sure to get the rearview monitor,
because views out of the X6 are
minimal as a driver backs up.
In the test car, there was some road
noise from the tires, and I could hear
the strong engine sounds on acceler-
ation. Otherwise, the interior was
quiet.
The X6 uses premium gasoline, so a
fill-up of the 22.5-gallon tank at
today's prices will cost more than
$100 and last an estimated 380 miles
in the X6 xDrive35i and 330 miles in
the xDrive50i.
Some 40,000 X6s are being built
annually at BMW's Spartanburg, S.C.,
assembly plant predominantly for
U.S. car shoppers. A few will be sold
in Germany and England.

Let's Go! Page 2 June 26 27, 2008


A day-long
celebration

Kim
Cool
L -o eB s ...............
LetOs Go
FeaturesEditor


The
Charles Hosmer
Morse Museum of
American Art is the perfect
place to begin your person-
al July 4 celebration, and
the price is right. On July 4,
the museum will be open
from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Admission will be free to all
that day.
Get there early because
Winter Park will be a hap-
pening place that day, espe-
cially in Central Park where
the city will hold its Olde
Fashioned July 4th
Celebration from 9 a.m. to
1 p.m., with rides, music,
horse-drawn wagon rides, a
hot-dog-eating contest and
other fun events.
Winter Park is such a clas-
sic "olde" Florida sort of
town, and the museum is
filled with classic American,
including one of the coun-
try's best collections of
Tiffany glass. Seems like a
great place to start the day,
which celebrates America's
independence.
For more information
about the museum, call
407-645-5311 or visit
www.morsemuseum.org.
Leave Winter Park as the
festivities wind down in
order to be back on
Florida's west coast for the
evening fireworks in your
favorite city along the cul-
tural coast. The ones in
Venice will begin about
sundown at the jetties. The
best viewing is from the
main public beach in
Venice or from the Nokomis
Beach.
Check your Sun paper for
other fireworks celebrations
in the area.


'THE NARROW GATE'
(Through June 29)
Stage II brings another new play to
the stage. This thoughtful, touch-
ing, and clever play explores
Galileo's life after he's been
jailed in the tower. His brilliant
mind whirls with experiments and
potential inventions, while he fights
the Church and develops an affec-
tion for his newest servant His
acidic wit and constant impatience
make this play a whirlwind of
ideas and emotions.

Edison & Ford Winter Estates are a year-round destination


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Inventor Thomas Edison's
winter home, guest house and
laboratory, built in 1885, were
the start of something big in
Fort Myers.
Enticed by the bamboo
growing on the site, Edison
purchased the spectacular
acreage along the
Caloosahatchee River with an
eye to using bamboo fiber as
filaments in his light bulbs.
That sort of research led
Edison to experiment with
many other tropical plants,
resulting in the unique gar-
dens that today are as big a
draw as the homes.
The timber-frame-built
houses and laboratory, with
Mangoes, the adjacent winter
home of Edison's friend Henry
Ford, have become one of the
foremost tourist destinations
along the west coast of
Horida.
Timber-frame construction,
most often used in the con-
struction of log houses, was
one of the earliest methods
used to prefabricate homes.
Entire houses could be precut,
hauled to the site and assem
bled, saving time and money.
That is the method Edison
used after designing his win-
ter home and guest cottage,
which were precut in Maine,
shipped to Fort Myers and
assembled on site in time for
Edison to return in 1886 with
his bride Mina who would, in
1947, deed the estate to the
city of Fort Myers for $1.
In the ensuing years, the
Edisons were visited by most
of the big names in industry,
including Henry Ford who
built Mangoes next to the
Edison guest house and
Harvey Firestone, who gifted
Edison with plants gathered
on travels around the world.
The then tiny 4-foot-tall
banyan tree, which Firestone
brought from India in 1925,
today must be constantly kept

deep water area. Used first for
off-loading the building mate-
rials needed for his houses
and other buildings, the pier
was later used for fishing
and, by Edison himself,
for daily strolls.
Along the road in front of
the homes, Edison planted a
double row of Mango trees
and then attached orchid
plants to those trees. Today
the entire property is like a
horticultural classroom, with
specimen plants from around
the world, including royal
poinciana trees from
Madagascar, frangipani trees
from Central America, Zulu
fig trees from Africa, Tung oil
trees from Asia, milk and
wine crinums from Sumatra,
sausage trees from Africa,

in check lest it sprawl over the
entire estate. It underwent
severe pruning in recent years
to protect the Edison labora-
tory from being engulfed by
the aerial shoots from the tree
that quickly grow into addi-
tional tree trunks to support
the tree's spreading branches.
Ford's house dates to 1916,
when he built the house to
facilitate vacations involving
the Edison and Ford families.
Edison's original laboratory
was moved to Dearborn,
Mich., in 1928, to become part
of his friend's Henry Ford
Museum at Greenfield Village.
A replica laboratory and office
building was built on the Fort


Myers site by Ford. Behind the
small building is Mina's
Moonlight Garden, which was
also created in 1928. Its pool
was meant to reflect the
moonlight.
Nearby was the Edison
swimming pool, one of the
first private pools built in
Florida. Constructed of
cement from Edison's
Portland cement company in
1910, the pool is currently
undergoing restoration. It fea-
tures a diving board and adja-
cent bath house.
Due west of the pool is the
path to Edison's pier, which
juts out some 1,500 feet into
the Caloosahatchee River's


Jackfruit trees from India and
miracle fruit shrubs from
Africa. On my most recent
visit, I picked up a list of 161
different trees and shrubs
blooming during June.
Propagated plants from
the estates' collection are
regularly offered for sale in
the garden shop.
This is a place where one
can easily spend an entire
day, enjoying guided or self-
guided tours of the buildings
and grounds. Enjoy snacks of
light repast in Banyan cafe
and spend several more hours
in the museum and laborato-
ry near the entrance to the
estates.
In the museum shop, one
can obtain kits to replicate
the homes, books about
Edison and Ford and their
contemporaries, and, my
favorite, "The Edison & Ford
Quote Book."
The Edison & Ford Winter
Estates Inc. is at 2350
McGregor Blvd., Fort Myers.

Visit Sarasota Springs, N.Y., without leaving Florida

With the rising price of gaso-

Disposable foil pans, for carrying raw food to the grill and cooked food to the table, or

Thermometers: a small dial-face instant-read one for checking interior doneness, and
