City agreed to airport's 'burden of noise' ,Medicare


Snubbed by city council,
a business association
unveils its research on
airport deed obligations
at a press conference.

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Good fences make good
neighbors.
That's how Chuck Schmieler,
president of the Venice Airport
Business Association, explained
the need for citizens of Venice to
understand deed restrictions
placed on airport land. And why
some well-intentioned attempts
to curtail noise and airport
growth could, in the end, violate
legal contracts the city is bound
under.
On Thursday, Schmieler
announced the results of his
investigation into the original
Venice Municipal Airport quit
claim deeds from the U.S. Army
in 1944, subsequent deeds of
release in 1947 and 1948 that
allowed non-aviation develop-
ment (mostly housing) from
Airport Road to San Marco near
the hospital west of U.S. 41, and
32 aviationo" easements that
still exist today.
Schmieler took on the task, he
said, to educate the citizenry and
help city council understand its
obligations to maintain the air-
port.
"All the airport deeds," he
concluded, "say the city agrees to
the following restrictions ... The
airport shall be used for public
airport purposes ... and shall be
maintained at all times in good
and serviceable condition to
assure its efficient operation."

The wrangling continued this
week over which road projects
will get priority for funding in
South County.
The Sarasota County Com-
mission fired off a letter to the
city of North Port, informing
officials there that a stake they
made on county road impact
fees for Sumter Boulevard im-
provements must instead go
toward previously agreed upon
upgrades to the U.S. 41-River
Road intersection.
North Port initially gave the
go-ahead to dedicate $7.8 mil-
lion in county impact fees the
city collected to widen the belea-
guered 41-River intersection in a
letter to County Commission
Chair Shannon Staub dated Jan.

any use that would interfere
with or adversely affect the oper-
ation or maintenance of the
Venice Municipal Airport,"
Schmieler said.
Some deeds refer to the city
accepting the "burden of noise"
that goes along with its agree-
ment to accept the land for
development in perpetuity.
"My friends ... this is not a
condo association," where resi-
dents get to create the rules.
"The city cannot have a referen-
dum to change this."
'Analysis paralysis'
Schmieler was one of five
founding members of VABA,
along with Jim Marble, recently
appointed by Mayor Ed Martin
to the Airport Advisory Board.


Together, they helped devel-
op an alternate airport layout
plan to "sell the FAA on smaller
runway protection zones" that
would minimally impact the
boundaries of the Lake Venice
Golf Club and Gulf Shores
neighborhood something
sought by neighborhood associ-
ations and a majority on city
council.
The response from the
Federal Aviation Administration
wasn't what they hoped for: the
alternate plan wasn't likely to fly,
responded the FAA, but send us
your plan, note your concerns
and we will provide feedback.
The response sent airport
critics and city council into
"analysis paralysis," Schmieler
said, and hasn't stopped the


complaints.
"It is reasonable to assume
that most of our complainants
now live on original airport
property that was released sub-
ject to these easements and
restrictive covenants," said
Venice Jet Center owner Art
Nadel in a letter that was copied
to city hall earlier this year.
The significance of this, said
Nadel, is "easements specifically
reserve the air space over the
properties for perpetual aircraft
traffic and even provide that
characteristic noise may be
made by the aircraft."
"Not only did our complain-
ers know they were moving near
an airport, but they obtained the

Trails suit moving toward resolution


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Attorneys representing the
400 property owners along the
Legacy Trail in Venice, Nokomis,
Laurel and Osprey who seek fed-
eral compensation have begun
preparing for oral argument in
the case.
They are asking the federal
government to compensate
those owners for the land taken


for the recreation trail opened
last spring.
Oral argument is scheduled
to begin in about two weeks
(around Aug. 1) in the U.S. Court
of Federal Claims in Washing-
ton.
The government was origi-
nally required to determine by
late May which owners applying
for compensation were eligible.
Counsel for the owners had until
last month to persuade the court


that their argument was legiti-
mate.
If the law firm representing
the owners can make their case,
the court will suggest a settle-
ment in the owners' favor. It will
probably consist of the ap-
praised value of the 400 proper-
ties as of April 2, 2004, as deter-
mined by the court, plus inter-
est, less attorneys' fees. In past
cases, they have averaged 25
percent of the award.


Altogether, about 550 proper-
ties owned by individuals,
Sarasota County, a commercial
parcel and the Mission Valley
and Bird Bay golf courses were
eligible to become plaintiffs.
The railroad track right of way
that lies under the present
Legacy Trail was established by
easements from Bertha Palmer
and her brother, Adrian Honore,
in 1903, to the Seaboard Air Line
Railway.


Nokomis Beach goes smoke-free


SUN PHOTO BY ROGER BUTTON
"Smoke-Free Zone" signs with ash trays attached were posted in the
parking lot at the beach access stairways Wednesday at Nokomis
Beach. The signs inform visitors they are to smoke only in the desig-
nated parking lot areas and shelters. "I'm glad they are stopping smok-
ing on the beach, but on the boardwalk they should put one of these
signs with an ashtray for the people wanting to sit on the boardwalk
bench,"' said Ben Klingbeil, right, with friends Richard Nuemann, left,
and Chris Nuemann.


III. Tower wrote his commission
"unanimously recommended
Sarasota County expend County
Road Impact fees collected (for)
the River Road and U.S. 41 inter-
section improvement project."
Staub responded to Tower in
a letter dated Feb. 6, in which
she thanked him and his col-
leagues "for directing the county
road impact fees to the River
Road intersection improvement
project."
By June 30, however, the
mood in North Port had soured
- apparently because the coun-
ty had not moved forward quick-
ly enough in the process. In a
new letter from Tower to Staub,
he said his colleagues had
"unanimously voted to request

cut defeated

BY BROOKY BROWN

Sen. Ted Kennedy may have
received more attention than the
bill he went to the Senate to help
pass on Wednesday. But Florida
residents didn't care as long as
the 10.6-percent cut in Medicare
reimbursements to doctors went
down in flames.
It did.
Kennedy hadn't been to the
Senate since June 2, when he
underwent brain surgery to
remove a life-threatening tumor.
But Wednesday, he joined 68
other senators in casting "yes"
votes and defeating the pro-
posed cut by a 69-30 veto-proof
margin.
On Thursday, Sarasota Coun-
ty Medical Society Dr. Michael
Patete said his patients were
coming into his
office express-
ing praise and a
sense of relief
over the vote.
"Thank God
they defeated
it," Patete said.
'We didn't


know what we I vf I
were going to Patete
do,' was the
common thread of conversa-
tions he had with his patients.
"I didn't know what they were
going to do if it wasn't defeated
either," he said.
Patete said the veto-proof
passage was important because
if President Bush vetoed the bill
as he had said he would, it would
simply return to the House and

Dent: Ballot


scanners


performed


smoothly

BY TERRY O'CONNOR
STAFF WRITER

Zip.
That's how fast scanners
sucked in hundreds of test
ballots Tuesday at election
offices in Sarasota, North
Port and Venice. The exer-
cise run by Supervisor of
Elections Kathy Dent was
meant to check the new $3.5
million voting system to be
used for the first time in the
Aug. 26 primary election.
The speed and account-
ability of the electronic
ballot boxes impressed
one former critic of Florida
voting practices.
"Here and throughout
Florida voters are now
assured that every ballot
cast has a paper trail that
can be audited," said
Christine Jennings, a repeat
candidate for the 13th
Congressional District.
An 18,000-vote discrep-
ancy in the race for the
13th Congressional District
helped cost Jennings a
2006 race versus Vern
Buchanan. County voters
mandated optical-scan bal-
loting after some touch-
screen machines malfunc-
tioned in the November
2006 vote.
Sarasota County resi-
dents tested the upgraded
scanning system by voting
from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
Election staff also tested
optical scan tabulators at
1001 Sarasota Center Blvd.
Tuesday's testing is in
addition to the equipment
testing done before every
Sarasota County election.
Liz Brennan, who man-
ages the North Port satel-
lite office of the Supervisor
of Elections, said about 90
voters tested her machines
through 5 p.m. Dent said
about 600 were cast in
Sarasota. The Venice vote
count was nearly 200.
Dent said the only com-
plaint was lodged by Levko
Klos, who is challenging
her in the Nov. 4 general
election. Klos said the vote
scanner in North Port did
not reject his improperly
marked ballot as it should
have.
Ballots instruct voters to
ask for another form if they
make a mistake.
"If you erase or make
other marks, your vote may
not count," ballots warn.
Brennan said Klos mis-
marked his first ballot and
the second went through.
"We believe the
machines performed as
they should have," Brennan
said.
Voters fed their own
mock ballots into the opti-
cal scan tabulator at
polling places. Dent said
scanned votes will be com-
pared against votes count-
ed manually to discover
any discrepancies.


Correction
In a recent story about the
North Port city commis-
sioners writing a letter to
Sarasota County requesting
the transfer of money from
River Road to Sumter Boule-
vard, there was a consensus
of 5-0 in favor of sending the
letter. A storyinWednesday's
newspaper stated other-
wise. The Gondolier Sun
regrets the error.

4A SUN NEWSPAPERS


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Just as the cost of living
has risen, so has the cost of
dying.
At the conclusion of a
public hearing Monday,
the Sarasota County Com-
mission unanimously en-
dorsed an amendment to
the county code granting
the medical examiner per-
mission to charge a $35
cremation- approval fee.
Approval is required of
the medical examiner any
time human remains are
to be cremated, to ensure
there are no unexplored
issues in that death that
might raise legal flags -
such as trauma, alcohol
poisoning or a drug over-
dose, according to Chief
Medical Examiner Dr.


Russell Vega.
"Up until this point
in time, we've provided
this service and haven't
charged separately for it,"
said Vega, whose district
includes Sarasota, Mana-
tee and DeSoto counties.
"But with (these) tight
budget times, we are fol-
lowing the route of all
other districts in the state
by charging a fee now."
The anticipated rev-
enue generated for Sara-
sota County in cremation
approvals is expected to be
about $100,000, Vega said.
That's based on an average
of 3,000 approvals his
office gives per year in the
county.
"And that would allow
us to reduce our budget
request to the county by
$100,000," Vega said.

County adopts $35



cremation-approval fee


Although Sarasota Coun-
ty approved the $35 fee,
Manatee and DeSoto coun-
ties are not required to
adopt it. Commission Chair
Shannon Staub suggested a
letter go out to the commis-
sions of those counties,
inviting them to follow suit.
Vega didn't see it as a
tough sell.
"I think it's a reasonable
process," he said. "I think
we'll find the same think-
ing in Manatee and De-
Soto counties."
The $35 fee may
see incremental increases
over the coming years and
will be charged to the cre-
matorium or funeral
home requesting the ser-
vice, he said.

Truth In Millage notices
going out in August.
However, the county com-
mission still has the option
of lowering the rate at its
September budget public
hearings.
Commissioner Nora
Patterson believed, how-
ever, that any lowering of
the millage rate would
send the wrong message
to the public.
"(As it is), we're telling
folks we're living with the
(economic) downturn,"
Patterson said. "We are
dipping into our (rainy
day) fund balances big

BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Sarasota County resi-
dents can rest assured
their millage rate will not
increase next year.
The Sarasota County
Commission unanimous-
ly certified the maximum
millage rate for fiscal year
2009 Wednesday at 3.3384
mills, the same as the cur-
rent rate.
One mill equals $1 of
tax on every $1,000 of a
home's taxable value;
therefore, on a house that
has a taxable value of
$200,000, the newly certi-
fied tax on that house
would remain at $667.68.
The certified millage
rate will be reflected on

ble government and we
are tightening our belt, but
we're trying to keep our-
selves whole for the

properties burdened by
the legal right of the feder-
al government to direct air
traffic together with its
noise over their houses,"
Nadel said.
Admittedly, he said, it's
possible that some resi-
dents who purchased their
homes were unaware of
the easements and cov-
enants.
That's an issue for real-
tors, title companies and
perhaps a few attorneys to
iron out, said one local
attorney who asked to
remain anonymous.
Spasms
"We chose to speak out
at this juncture because
changes have taken place
that citizens of Venice
should know about,"
Schmieler said, referring to
the FAA meeting in May.
"What we took away
(from the meeting) was
simply the airport needs to
comply to the extent 'prac-
ticable' with FAA guide-
lines ... to the extent possi-
ble. Then the FAA may
grant modifications to
standards. They made it
clear the golf course exists
to serve the airport, not the
other way around."
"We're not trying to rub
anybody's nose in this. I
think my neighbors need
to understand that ... their
houses aren't going to be
taken. They have been liv-
ing in a designated zone
for 40 years," according to
county maps, he said.
"Their property values
have not declined. We
have a momentary blip. I
believe an element of the
community has gotten
people all spasmed up
about these things, when
there is really nothing to


get spasmed up over."
He downplayed an on-
going debate over the
value of the airport to the
local economy. The 2000
airport master plan cites
an overall impact of $60
million on the region.
Venice Neighborhoods
Coalition guesstimates it's
probably no more than $4
million locally each year.
"I can tell you we have
$15 million invested here
along Airport Road in cap-
ital expenditures alone,"
Schmieler said. "We have
80 people who work at the
airport, and 50 (flight
training) students who live
and work here."
'Disturbing trend'
Schmieler made the
comments two days after
issuing a scathing press
release in which he ac-
cused city council and
some neighborhood asso-
ciation of waging war on
the airport, and giving up
free grant monies that
could have been ear-
marked for the rehabilita-
tion of runway 4/22.
Airport studies since
2000 refer to the runway
as in poor condition, and
it's getting worse due to
city council's inaction,
Schmieler said.
Venice Aviation Society
Inc. President Nick Car-
lucci introduced a two-
minute video of a Cessna
Cittion jet, one of the heav-
ier aircraft using the air-
port. From the pilot's view,
the video shows a bumpy
and noisy ride while at-
taining speeds of 75 knots
on runway 4/22. At one
point the plane is jolted
while running over what
aviators call a "FOD (for-
eign object damage) area."
In contrast, the video
shows a smooth, quiet ride


on the recently rehabilitat-
ed runway 13/31.
The poor runway con-
dition, Carlucci said, is
causing a "disturbing
trend" where heavier air-
craft are avoiding use of
runway 4/22, the preferred
noise abatement runway
that neighborhood coali-
tions pushed for.
Shift
Thursday's press con-
ference was toned down
considerably.
"We meant to be firm,
but not harsh on the city,"
Schmieler said. "We be-
lieve VABA should be non-
political. We have had
nothing but cordial dia-
logue and we continue to
have cordial dialogues"
with city council mem-
bers.
Yet, he said, VABA is
concerned about its "rela-
tionship with the city."
Weeks earlier Schmieler
requested time on city
council's agenda to pre-
sent his research on deed
and their obligations, but
council declined to hear
his presentation, instead
offering the usual five-
minute public comment
period.
Wednesday evening the
city called him and politely
asked him to move the
location of his press con-
ference from the commu-
nity room in city hall else-

where. It was moved to the
Venice Jet Center.
"Council has chosen,
from our perspective, to
manage the airport direct-
ly," Schmieler said. "That is
their right. Having said
that, we have no focal
point to negotiate leases or
to form relationships be-
cause they simply haven't
nominated someone
whose word is binding.
"We have detected a


shift in the way things are
done."
He then asked the city
to issue its own warning
about unsafe conditions
on runway 4/22, request-
ed the FAA and Florida
Department of Transpor-
tation to conduct their
own inspections, and re-
scind council's vote to seek
and new consultant.
"The city needs to
change its approach and


begin defending the air-
port," Schmieler said. "We
have an asset here. Let's
make the best of it."
"These people have
leases. They have legal
obligations. The way to
solve these problems is
not by fighting, but you do
have to have a two-way
relationship."

1OA SUN NEWSPAPERS FRIDAY. JULY 11,2008


CUT from Page 1A

Senate for another vote.
"If the House and Senate
vote the way they just did,
then the bill would become
law," Patete said.
U.S. Senate Bill 6331 is
now in the hands of the
president to sign into law,
which Patete said could
happen as early as Thurs-
day and is what he and
other Florida doctors are
hoping will happen.
Florida Sen. Bill Nelson
did not want the 10.6-per-
cent cut in reimbursements
to go into effect. His coun-
terpart, Sen. Mel Martinez,
had previously been in
favor of the cut.
Martinez changed his
mind and voted with the
majority in Wednesday's
defeat of the cut.
Patete thinks Florida res-
idents calling to urge him to
defeat the cut may have
helped change Martinez's
vote.
"Thank you," Patete said
to all who called their sena-
tors. "We'll continue fight-
ing for your access to
healthcare for your medical
needs."


MEDICARE INFO
For Medicare updates,
how they affect you and
what you can do to help
change America's
healthcare system, call
the Sarasota County
Medical Society at 966-
3134 or visit its Web
site, info@ sarasotacoun
tymedical.com


Martinez posted the fol-
lowing explanation of his
vote on his Web site, mar-
tinez.senate.gov
"My commitment to
doctors has always been to
make certain they do not
suffer pay cuts due to a
faulty Medicare reimburse-
ment formula. Today, I
offered a motion to protect
doctors from a pay cut
while Congress negotiated
a solution. Unfortunately,
my effort was rejected by
Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid, leaving no
assurance that doctors
wouldn't be hurt.
"The measure we moved
forward today does not pro-
vide the kind of solution
doctors deserve, but this is
the only option to stop doc-
tors in Florida from having
their pay cut by 10.6 per-
cent. It is also the only
option to ensure that
seniors continue to have
uninterrupted access to
healthcare.
"It continues to frustrate
me that Congress has been
unable to address the issue
of true Medicare reform.
The underlying reason we
have to act every year to
stop payment cuts to doc-
tors is because the way we
pay doctors under the pro-
gram is broken. The me-
chanics under which Medi-
care operates are flawed;
the next scheduled rate
adjustment Congress will
have to avert amounts to a
20.6 percent cut. I will con-
tinue to strive for a perma-
nent solution."

Fight continues
The fight for affordable
healthcare in the United
States isn't over even if the
president signs Bill 6331.
"We're facing a 20.5-per-
cent cut in 2010," Patete
said. "But (Congressman)
Vern Buchanan has pro-
mised us he will get the
Florida Medical Association
representatives in front of
the Florida delegation 25
House representatives and
Senators Mel Martinez and
Bill Nelson after the elec-
tion."
Patete said he felt what
really helped influence Mar-
tinez's vote were the phone


calls made by Florida resi-
dents to Martinez's office
urging him to defeat the
10.6 percent cut.
Patete said it's important
that Florida citizens keep
abreast of the Medicare
news and stay in touch with
their senators and repre-
sentatives.

when Rhude informed
him it would be impossi-
ble to make repairs with-
out it.
Monks left the store, but
returned several times to
check the status of his
computer, each time being
assured he would be noti-
fied when it was ready.
Rhude began fixing
Monks' computer by mak-
ing a back-up file of his

Jim Harriott, general
manager of public works
for the county, said North
Port had no right to do
that, based on the inter-
local agreement it has with
the county. According to
that agreement, he said,
North Port had 60 days to
nix the deal beginning
on Feb. 6.
'And they had to do so
by resolution," Harriott
said. "That's clearly written
in the interlocal. That gave
them until the middle of
April. But they didn't."

Tired of waiting
Harriott acknowledged
the interlocal agreement
also required a "coordina-
tion meeting" during May
on the project.

It was then that he
found a folder labeled
"preteen gay porn" on
Monks' hard drive. Ac-
cording to the police re-
port, Rhude said the folder
contained at least 4,000
image files and videos of
boys and girls as young as
4 engaging in sexual inter-
course with adult men and
other children.
In case Monks came
back while he was gone,
Rhude instructed his staff
to tell him he was running
errands. He then went to
the Venice Police Depart-


"We didn't have the
meeting, even though we
had similar meetings in
previous months," he said.
"Does that negate the
whole thing? It doesn't say
that in the interlocal."
So how will this dis-
agreement get resolved?
Tower believes the county
should reveal its plans for
the U.S. 41-River Road
intersection and for
River Road.
"But we would like to
use that money for Sum-
ter," Tower said. "'And since
February, the county has
not said one word to us.
We felt they weren't inter-
ested (in the intersection).
We got tired of waiting, to
be very truthful. If they'd
acted faster, this whole
thing would not be an
issue by now."


ment.
Detective Howard Dunn
accompanied Rhude back
to the store. When they
arrived arrival, Monks was
waiting in the store. Dunn
advised him that he was
seizing the computer be-
cause it allegedly contained
child pornography.
According to the report,
Monks admitted to Dunn
he had downloaded porn-
ography in the past but
was unaware of any illegal
material on his computer.
He asked Dunn to remove
anything illegal from his


Harriott said the matter
might get forced into arbi-
tration.
"The key point here is
these are county impact
fees," Harriott said. "And
North Port's inaction dur-
ing that 60-day period
gives the county the right
to use the funds as origi-
nally planned at the
U.S. 41-River Road inter-
section, not Sumter Boul-
evard."
Tower did not think the
matter should go to arbi-
tration.
"There's negotiation
that's available once we get
all these idiosyncrasies of
what the interlocal says
ironed out," Tower said.

Three days later a war-

Help take the sting out of mosquito season


T here was a time Florida was con-
sidered to be uninhabitable. For
good reason.
John Randolph of Virginia argued
the huge peninsula was not fit for
human life. He called it a "land of
swamps, of quagmires, of frogs, and
alligators and mosquitoes."
That's according to a training man-
ual from the state Department of Agri-
culture that examines the history of
mosquito control.
A few other highlights:
Orange County was once known
as Mosquito County.
Yellow fever hit epidemic propor-
tions in Jacksonville and Fernandina
Beach in 1877. Some 1,146 people in
Fernandina (population 1,632) got
sick; 24 died.
In 1888 in Jacksonville, 10,000 left
town when an epidemic broke out.


Mosquitoes weren't just annoying,
they were dangerous.
During World War I, all that began
to change with the first big moves by
government to fight malaria through
swamp drainage and larvicide pro-
grams. The programs grew and altered
the state forever.
For the coming year, Charlotte
County has $3.5 million budgeted for
mosquito control, roughly $400,000
below the current year's funding.
County officials are hoping for anoth-
er dry season; if it keeps raining, they
may have to dip into reserves to fight
the never-ending battle.
Sarasota County has $3.045 million
budgeted for next year, down from this
year's $3.06 million. In a recent series
of public meetings, participants
downplayed the importance of mos-
quito control; less than a third put it in


the top three of county health and
human service programs.
File that in the take-it-for-granted
file.
The recent spring rains may go a
long way toward replenishing the
area's drinking water supply, but they
also could make this mosquito season
the worst in three years. County mos-
quito control programs soon will be
busy again with ground and air spray-
ing programs.
Many Florida mosquitoes are the
saltwater species that breed in the
standing water in marshes, swamps
and ditches. The county's mosquito
control services deal with that.
But other varieties breed in your
backyard, and everyone can do some-
thing to help keep the buzzing action
to a minimum. Basically, the advice is
to remove standing water around


the house.
Here are some suggestions:
Throw out old tires, buckets and
cans. Pick up anything that catches
water. Clean up kids' toys and flower
pots. If nothing else, remove water
from trash-can lids and boat tarps.
Change water in bird baths, kiddie
pools and flower vases once a week.
Clean rain gutters and down-
spouts. Repair leaking faucets and
anything that can cause water to pud-
dle for days, especially in shaded
areas.
Empty pet water bowls kept out-
side every day.
Don't dump grass clipping in
ditches. (This also harms water quality
when the clippings wash away to
bays.)
It all helps make Florida a little
more livable.


Selective invective


SWEET DEAL?


MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


This is the opening line
of a local newspaper's col-
umn regarding Medicare:
"So, seniors, which would
you rather have your
doctor or your Medicare
Advantage plan?" My
rewrite would be: "So,
seniors, which would you
rather have a Medicare
Advantage plan or social-
ized medicine?"
Medicare is sinking in a
pool of fraud and corrup-
tion. It is being looted a
whopping $70 billion dol-
lars per year.
Medicare was budgeted
at $400 billion in 2008. By
the end of the year, 20 per-
cent of those funds will
have gone toward fake
claims and mischarges,
which work out to a loss to
each of us of about $250 a
year.
Last year I grabbed the
government's life preserv-
er, an advantage plan, and
saved three times that
amount. Oh, it is so nice to
pick up a prescription and
be told that there's "no
charge." If not free, they
are discounted. Seniors,
come on in, the water's
fine.
I have no ties to the
health insurance or health
care industry- only a per-
sonal concern about
American liberty and
medical freedom. Michael
Moore made a film called
"Sicko" which is virtually a
love letter to the Canadian
health care plan. I'd like to
start a fund to send Moore
to Canada; however, I have
too many good Canadian
friends and wouldn't wish
him on them.
Canadians are taxed
dearly for their health care.
However, Americans should
know that Canada rations
out health care like gold.
Many Canadians must
wait inordinately long
periods of time for urgent
medical treatment. The
Fraser Institute's annual
report, "Waiting our Turn,"
estimates that Canadians
are presently waiting for
nearly 800,000 medical
procedures. It's not diffi-
cult to find Canadians who
have waited months to get
an MRI and years for some
types of treatments.
I believe we all know the
drawbacks of socialized
medicine in the United
States, but the liberal
media are not reporting


the facts as they are.
Recently, I suffered a
rather severe head injury
and went to Venice Re-
gional Medical Center's
emergency room. A CAT
scan was given and pro-
cessed within two hours.
All in all, I received won-
derful treatment.
My out-of-pocket was
$50. Last year, it would
have been zilch, but the
biased media reporting is
having a negative affect on
the allotments to the
advantage plans.
I understand that Sara-
sota Memorial Hospital
does not accept advantage
plans; unless it is forced to
admit that, it must accept
Medicare without discrim-
ination. As seniors, we
must be persistent that we
are not disenfranchised
because we have plans
that save us money.
Here are some facts
about the uninsured here.
Fourteen million people
without coverage are eligi-
ble for Medicaid, but
haven't signed up; throw in
millions of illegal immi-
grants who do not buy
insurance; add the 17 mil-
lion Americans who make
more than $50,000 a year,
but go without health in-
surance. It's called priori-
ties, and if you prefer a
wide-screen television to
health insurance, so be it.
Like so many other
locals, I am disappointed
that our fine City Manager,
Marty Black, is resigning.
He's micro-managed so
many great things for this
city, but as the old saying
goes, "You can't fight city
hall."
Now, the no-growth
gang is up in arms about
the airport. Jets have
always been flying out of
there, so what's the prob-
lem all of a sudden?
Should we let the runway
deteriorate and the build-
ings fall down?
Why do they hate the
Waterfront towers? They
are aesthetically beautiful
and a perfect fit for the
area. Would another con-
venience store or gas sta-
tion have added status to
our beautiful City on the
Gulf?
Santa Barbara, Calif.,
was a city very similar to
Venice. But the no-growth
faction got their teeth into
it and now its population
and annual income have
decreased while its home-
less and unemployed have
increased.
Another city in Santa
Barbara County, Santa
Maria, is the "new" Santa
Barbara. I wonder how
long before there will be a
"New Venice."
Ronald Reagan said
once, "There are no such
things as limits to growth,

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



Better, not bigger, is better


Editor:
In childhood, getting bigger is generally good; after
maturity, it is not. Companies need growth, but growth is
measured in terms of profit for stockholders, not in
increased sales. Any fool can sell bananas at a nickel a
pound. For communities, growth measurement should
be in terms of quality of life for current residents.
Increasing population dilutes availability of re-
sources. There is less waterfront per individual, and
boats and cars move slower because of congestion.
In the recent building boom, water enjoyment faded
as beachfront hotels and restaurants were transformed
into condos.
Growth can be especially costly when elected officials
welcome it as "expanding the tax base" without forcing
growth to pay full cost. In recent years, developers have
howled as additional impact fees have been levied on
construction to pay for infrastructure. The developers
seem to be threatening that new buyers will not locate
here unless given a subsidy because growth has already
eroded the charm that at one time allowed premium
pricing.
And even with current impact fees, current residents
must subsidize growth. More electric power is needed,
and current residents will find an extra charge in their
bill to pay for solar facilities. We may be asked to pay for
toll roads.
Thanks to the Gondolier Sun for the excellent articles
on the Tampa Bay seawater desalination plant, and how
Tampa Bay residents will be required to subsidize the
incredible cost of that water. That could happen here.

Save oil and
save lives
Editor:
The oil crisis is very
complex and there are
many approaches to its
solution. One of these pro-
posals, drilling oil in and
around the continental
United States, might not
be a great idea.
If the Middle Eastern
countries have a finite
amount of oil in the
ground and will run out
some day, the same would
apply to the United States
and its oilfields. It seems


like a good idea to keep
getting our oil from the
Middle East so that when
they pump out their last
drop, we will still have
ours.
One good approach is
to cut back on our con-
sumption. The high gas
prices will help this to hap-
pen. People will start dri-
ving smaller vehicles and
eliminate unnecessary
trips.
Huge amounts of gaso-
line could be saved by
dropping speed limits
from 70 to 60 mph and


actually enforcing that law. want to throw Bush in jail

Democrat? Republican?
Al Bosch Socialist? Libertarian? Let
Venice us all know.


Better safe than sorry
Editor:
As a disabled veteran, I
want to know where Mr.
Wilkins gets all his infor-
mation.
To start, www.wethep-
eople.com has nothing on
it except advertisements
for law firms and Web and
free domain names. Now,
if this person had checked
yesterday's news he would
have seen where there was
555 metric tons of yellow
cake uranium in Iraq
being shipped to Canada. I
wonder if I am the only
one who read this article.
As a disabled veteran, I
am glad we have a Patriot
Act; it is to protect us but
get the guilty. Now we have
fingerprints of all the peo-
ple who were part of the
terrorists and who fought
against our troops. These
people kept coming back
and leaving the states with
no abatement. I would
rather have a safe country
even if it means that we go
after the terrorists or any
wannabes, no matter what
the method.

two things that are impor-
tant to me, I wonder who

Not even the
police can do that
Editor:
Thank you for a very
informative article regard-
ing the proposed property
code.
I believe an earlier arti-
cle regarding this Inter-
national Property Mainte-
nance Code stated that it
would give a city employee
the right to knock on your
door, advise that they want
to inspect the inside of
your home and, if you
refuse, issue you a misde-
meanor ticket.
If this is correct, it
seems incredible to me
that this could be legal, or
that our city council would
even consider this type of
action.
As I understand it, the
police must either have a
legally issued search war-
rant to enter your home, or
there must be concern
about the immediacy of a
crime being, or about to
be, committed. Certainly,
the police are at a much
level higher of authority
and responsibility regard-

Fuel for thought on

garbage collection

Just once. I think Venice garbage pick-up should be
once a week. It's no hardship, and it certainly would save
a lot of fuel. I don't know why this doesn't happen imme-
diately. City council should get on it, city manager and
the mayor. Let's have once-a-week pick-up.


Big trouble. I've just
been reading about Mr.
Boone's subpoena of John
Patten for presumably
hacking into John Sim-
monds' computer. John
Patten has no need to hack.
First of all, people send him
stuff all the time. They also
phone him at 10 o'clock at
night from phone booths
and tell him what's going
on. There are Deep Throats
everywhere. I have seen a
copy of an e-mail from
Simmonds to the man who
is the head of the jet center
in which he suggests that
they get rid of the three
incumbents. He sent a car-
bon copy or a computer
copy to Boone and to other


people. And those were not
from his private computer.
They were not impounded.
The e-mails I have seen
where he's bad-mouthing
and plotting were on pieces
of paper that were from e-
mails that were turned over
to city hall and printed out
for people who asked for
them. So I think that Mr.
Simmonds is in big trouble.
I think that he should resign
because the nasty, nasty
things he says about people,
and his plans to derail the
business of our city govern-
ment are really over the top.
Oversight. When we
already have to pay $135 for
a city inspector to come to
check a professionally in-


stalled garage door, we don't
need anymore government
oversight of our housing.
The city already has enough
rules that they can take care
of any problem. We have a
house next door that was in
disrepair and the city has
managed to have it come
up to standards. Therefore,
let's not have anymore
Gestapo tactics from city
hall.
Promise. The Sierra Club
is still fighting against addi-
tional mining of phosphate
in the upper Peace River.
Two of the club's main argu-
ments are the mining would
disturb land and would use
water. Of course, if that
water made it downriver to
coastal counties, those
counties would simply use
the water to disturb more
land to plant irrigated grass.
The Sierra Club's arguments
would be strengthened if
counties would support
them by promising that any
water saved by reduced
mining would unre-
strictably be allowed to flow
into and flush out Charlotte
Harbor.


issues than a city employee
who may be responsible for
code enforcement, however
that is defined.
Certainly you do not give
power to a governmental
body and trust that it will use
common sense in applying
that power. I believe putting
the words "common sense"
and "governmental body" in
one sentence would be one
of the better definitions of an

Don't settle for
just any hospital

Editor:
North Port needs a hospi-
tal.
If North Port was its own
county, we would have one.
And maybe, just maybe it
would be a state-of-the-art
teaching hospital, serving
the needs of every age
demographic the city hous-


es, from infant to elderly.
It makes no sense to
attract a corporation that is
only interested in blocking
others to reduce its competi-
tion. Putting profits in front
of life-saving services that
this community needs is an
outrage. We should not
stand for it.
The commission needs
to be unified. It also needs to
have a clear understanding
of what the community
requires.
Again, to have a hospital
for the sake of having a hos-
pital is less than half a victo-
ry. Let's not encourage short-
sightedness. It may take
longer to get the job done
right. Let's be diligent.

A state-of-the art teach-
ing hospital would help with
the city's efforts to build a
solid base of economical
development, besides
breaking away from
Sarasota County and keep-
ing our tax money to be uti-
lized locally. The present and
future commissions should
investigate other incentives
to attract not only a hospital
but other businesses.
North Porters must take a
proactive stance. No matter
which candidate or issue
you support, you must cast

Shamrock Family Salon,
763 Shamrock Blvd., next
to Nick's Cafe.
A full-service family
salon, it offers styling for
men, women, children and
even infants.
"We have a toddler car
chair for kids and they get
a candy with their styling,"
said McGuire.
Additional services in-
clude perms, highlights
and lowlights, coloring,
manicures and pedicures.
Both experienced hair-
dressers were raised in
Venice and graduated from
Venice High School.
Johnson opened the
Glamour Nook salon in
the former Venetian Plaza,
now Lowe's. The salon
burned down in 1996 and
she rented stations in sev-
eral salons around Venice.
"I decided a few weeks
ago to acquire my own
salon with Laura," said
Johnson.
McGuire has been doing
low-maintenance hair cut-
ting for men, women and
children in local salons for
10 years. The salon is open
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mon-
days, Wednesdays, Thurs-
days and Saturdays and
from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tues-
days and Fridays. Call 493-
9933.
Mattress store opens
Mattress Giant, 4264
South Tamiami Trail,

new Shoppes of Venice
near the Hess gas station
and Books-A-Million in
South Venice.
The 4,000-square-foot
store has more than 40
mattress brands and spec-
ifications, including Latina
personality Cristina Sara-
legi's brand.
Recognized as one of
the fastest-growing mat-
tress retailers, Mattress
Giant was founded 25 years
ago in Miami, but is now
headquartered in Addison,
Texas, and has 340 loca-
tions in 13 states.
The store is managed
by Paul Schorpen and an
associate. It opens at 10
a.m. weekdays and 11 a.m.
weekends. Call 497-3910.
Purse store opens
"We have the newest
variety of designer-
inspired handbags, wal-
lets, fashion accessories
and sunglasses and a spe-


cial line of candles," said
Tim Dougherty, who, with
ex-wife Patricia and
daughter Jessica Smith,
has opened Venice Island
Purses, 235 W Miami Ave.,
next to Back Eddy Bistro.
From Carlsbad, N.M.,
he came to Homestead,
Fla., in 1956, moving to
Sarasota, then to Venice in
1976. Smith was previous-
ly in auto repair manage-
ment and pool construc-
tion.
The family intends to
expand its inventory lines
and have a grand opening
in November. The store
opens Monday through
Saturday at 10 a.m. Call

Owners upgrade pub
Donnie Schoff of No-
komis, together with

Haverty's in Sarasota.
A completely new out-
door weather-proof seat-
ing area for 85 people has
been added with live
entertainment. The fami-
ly-friendly European-style
pub has a full liquor bar
and serves traditional fish
and chips, bangers and
mash, pasties plus wings

rants.
The pub opens at 11:30
a.m. Monday through
Saturday. Call 927-1022.

offers free home inspec-
tions.
Qualified inspectors
make a wind inspection of
your home and provide an
assessment form. Submit-
ting the form to your
insurance company may
result in a discount on
your premium. Discounts
vary but can range from
$300 to $2,000. Call (866)
354-4040
IHOP name change
The recent change in
name for the parent com-
pany of the International
House of Pancake restau-
rants to dineEquity will not
affect either their IHOP or
its recent acquisition of
Applebee's restaurants.
A spokesperson con-
firmed this was simply a
change of corporate name
effective June 2, announced
by Julie Stewart, chair and
CEO on May 28, when she
said the title reflects the
company's core compe-
tencies and recognizes its
ownership of multiple
brands.

Denver company acquires DeSears


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Exciting changes are
scheduled to start this
weekend at DeSears Appli-
ance & Home Entertain-
ment, according to Don
Galloway, chief executive
of new owners Appliance
World & Home Theater of
Denver.
Ten trucks have this
week delivered more than
600 appliances to the store
in South Venice.
Galloway declined to
disclose the price of the
acquisition, which includes
three additional DeSears
stores, in Sarasota, Brad-
enton and Palmetto.
The business began in


1947 in Samoset, Fla.,
where the DeSears broth-
ers founded a general gro-
cery store that included
home appliances. Within a
few years they stopped
selling general merchan-
dise to focus on major
appliances. In the mid-
'90s the present owners,
John Rice and Penny
Robinson, acquired the
business, transforming it
and increasing the prod-
uct lines.
Two years ago Galloway
and his partner, Don
Clarke, an asset manage-
ment banker in Miami,
founded their Colorado
company, which has grown
to four stores; they claim
to be the biggest appliance


retailer in the Rocky
Mountains. Recently they
acquired New Mexico's
leading $40 million appli-
ance and video retailer's
two stores.
With the acquisition of
DeSears, the Denver-based
business claims revenues
will exceed $100 million
this year. Employee num-
bers have been increased
this week to join the 70-
member DeSears team as
Galloway prepares for a
major marketing program
in this area.
"We have a little differ-
ent strategy and business
model to our competitors
by offering a minimum 30-
to 83-percent discount,"
said Galloway. "It's reverse


logistics, where we buy
back appliances delivered
to customers but refused
because of color, scratch-
es, dents or similar things,
enabling us to resell the
open and unboxed items
at reduced prices."
Galloway credits himself
with putting Home Depot
into the appliance-retailing
business during the mid-
'90s. Using those skills he
created his Colorado-
based company's strategy,
which will become the
norm for DeSears.
DeSears will retain its
name, concentrating on
appliances and home the-
ater. Galloway said furni-
ture will no longer be sold
in the stores.

Coalition seeks health insurance solution


Tighten your seat belts.
Economists tell us we're in
for a bumpy financial ride
in the coming months.
But in reality, our nation
has been in the throes of
crises for some time.
Small business owners
are often thwarted from
growing their business due
to double-digit increases
for health insurance -
if they can provide insur-
ance at all. According
to a recent report by
PriceWaterhouseCoopers,
employer health care costs
are expected to rise 9.9
percent in 2008 and an
additional 9.6 percent in
2009.
Already, many hard-
working families live in


fear that they are one
major illness away from
financial ruin. The current
economic situation is mak-
ing matters worse.
It's high time politicians
put aside their differences
to find a way to work out
common-sense, biparti-
san solutions to ensure
that all Americans have
access to affordable, quali-
ty health care and a secure
financial future.
The National Federation
of Independent Businesses
joined AARP the Business
Roundtable and the Ser-
vice Employees Inter-
national Union as well as
millions of ordinary Amer-
icans to ask our elected
leaders to find bipartisan
solutions to these two vital
issues that most affect our
lives.
Though we make rather
unlikely allies, we recog-
nize the power of coming
together to focus on what
we have in common.
Divided We Fail's premise
is simple and compelling:
All Americans, of every
generation, ought to have
access to quality, afford-
able health care and a life-
time of financial security.
As the largest group rep-


resenting America's job-
creating, small-business
engine, NFIB experiences
firsthand the problems
related to the political
stalemate on health care.
Eighty percent of NFIB
members have 10 or fewer
employees, a population
particularly hard-hit by
rising health-care costs.
Healthy, growing small
businesses create two-
thirds of new jobs in
America every year and
are the backbone of busi-
ness in the nation. But to
continue to grow, small
business needs help.
Insurance premiums
have jumped 129 percent
in the past eight years and
continue to rise. The
nation's smallest firms pay
on average 18 percent
more in health insurance
premiums than the largest
firms do for the same ben-
efits, making it difficult for
small business owners to
afford coverage for their
employees and families.
According to a recent
survey of NFIB members,
the foremost health care
issue for small business
owners is cost. Of the esti-
mated 47 million Amer-
icans without health care,


more than 28 million
are small-business own-
ers, employees and their
families.
We can't wait any
longer. The time has come
to address this problem in
a real and lasting way.
Divided We Fail is work-
ing to bring small busi-
ness, corporations, gov-
ernment and the public to
the table for a discussion
on the issues of health care
and lifetime financial
security. It's time for our
nation's political leaders to
start working together to
take on the threats to
America's overall econom-
ic competitiveness.
In this great country, we
can find solutions, even to
these two persistent prob-
lems. Together, we are
stronger and much harder
to ignore.
Divided We Fail, but
together, we can do any-
thing.

change; visit www.divided
wefail.org.

License issue
leads to drug arrest
On July 1, Venice Police
Detectives Dunn and
Gregoire made contact
with Jeffrey Faett, the
owner of AUTOSCORE,
333 S. Warfield Ave.
Although the detectives
responded to this address
for a violation of selling
vehicles without a dealer
license, VPD had also
received information that
persons were driving to
this address to exchange
crack cocaine for pain pills.
Faett admitted to selling
vehicles from the address
without a dealer license.
Charges are to be filed with
the State Attorney's Office.
While in the area, the
detectives observed two
vehicles arrive at the
address. Contact was made


with the occupants of
these vehicles. The drivers
gave consent to search the
vehicles and Methadone
was located in Selina
Angela Ferreira's vehicle.
The Methadone was found
in her purse and she
admitted to not having a
prescription for the pills.
She was arrested for pos-
session of a controlled sub-
stance and transported to
the South County Jail.

LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL FLORIDA DISTRICT 16 ALL-STAR TOURNAMENT



FOUR-PEAT: Venice National claims district title

Venice:


Baseball


City USA

There were 15 Major
League Baseball games
played in ballparks all
over the continental U.S.
on Tuesday. There were 13
not- so-major-league
baseball games played
right here in Venice on the
same day.
Unless you pay extra
for MLB Extra Innings and
you have TiVo, there's no
way you could have
watched every single big-
league game. But the local
games were played so
close together within a
1.5 mile radius you
could have seen them all
live and in person.
Had you been sitting
atop the eight-story con-
dos between the North
and Venice Avenue
bridges, you probably
could could have seen
every one of them. Go
ahead, picture yourself
perched atop Venice's
tallest, non-beachfront
structure.
To the south is the
Inaugural Bogey's Baseball
Tournament at Venice
High School, less than a
half mile away. You can
get seats worse than that
at Tropicana Field, and at
least here you can enjoy
the outdoors.
Peer a little bit further
south, and you can make
out the Little League
District 16 All-Star tour-
nament unfolding at
Chuck Reiter Park. You
might not have the best
view of the strike zone
from there, but that
shouldn't keep you or
little Johnny's mother -
from screaming about it
when you disagree with
the umpire.
To see the next set of
games, just turn 90
degrees to your left. There,
to the east, are the Little
League Junior All-Stars in
their tournament at
Wellfield Park.
In all, you have a clear,
although distant, view of
13 baseball games taking
place throughout the day.
And Venice is supposed to
be a football town.
By the end of the day
Sunday, there will have
been at least 38 baseball
games played within the
city limits. Add to that the
amount of senior softball
that goes on in this place
and you hardly have a
minute to even think
about football.
If you need more proof,
just open up Google
Earth, type in Venice,
Florida, and count the
baseball and softball dia-
monds on your screen.
From a scant 8.71 kilome-
ters above sea level, you
can count 15 of them:
three at Wellfield Park,
four at Bypass Park, four
at Venice High School
including the practice
infield and old softball
field, and four at Chuck
Reiter Park.
In that same space,
there are three football
fields. Hardly a football
town if you ask me. Play
ball!

The 9-10 Venice
National League All-Stars
have done it again.
For the fourth time in
four years, Venice has laid
claim to the Florida District
16 Little League All-Stars
Tournament champion-
ship. They held off a scrap-
py Central Sarasota base-
ball team to do it.
As the representative
from the losers' bracket,
Sarasota forced Venice
into a second game for the
championship by winning
the first 12-8. But Venice
wouldn't have anybody
breaking their program's
streak, and they went on to
win the second game 12-2
in four innings Thursday
at Chuck Reiter Park.
"It was a good series, I
think everybody played
good," saidVenice manag-
er Tom Grubbs. "All the
teams played very well. We
had bad games and good
games, but the best one
was at the end and that's
the important one."
The second game was
quite a turnaround from
the first.
Sarasota had just come
off an emotional, come-
from-behind victory over
Venice American a night
earlier. They trailed 7-2 in
the top of the sixth, but
were able to take advantage
of costly Venice American
errors to tie the game at
seven. Sarasota went on to
win 10-8 in seven innings.
The comeback kids did
it again in game one
Thursday night. Venice
National led 5-1 to start the
fourth inning but Sarasota
again took advantage of
costly errors, posting six
runs on two hits. None of
the runs were earned.
Nerves took over for
Venice, as they only scored
three more runs in the next
three innings as Sarasota
added another five to win
12-8.
"When they get down,
they get off their game,"
Grubbs said. "When they
get up, they get even better
than they are normally.
Confidence is definitely a
big thing."
In game two, Venice
was definitely up.
It started in similar fash-
ion to game one. Venice
took a 4-1 lead after two
innings.
Danny Manieri led off
in the first, reaching first
on a second baseman's
error. The next batter, Jake
Grubbs, singled to put run-
ners on first and second.
Kris Rice hit into a fielder's
choice but because no-
body was thrown out, he
loaded the bases. Rylee
Buckmaster hit a sacrifice
fly to right to score

Manieri, and Grubbs later
stole home to put Venice
up 2-0.
In the second, Brock
Peyton led off with a walk
and Eric Brown singled to
right to put runners on
first and second for
Grubbs. He belted a two-
run double to put Venice
up 4-1.
Leading off in the bot-
tom of the third was Buck-
master, and that's when it
started to get bad for Sara-
sota. Buckmaster cranked
a solo-shot over right-cen-
ter field to put Venice up 5-
2.
"It always picks the kids
up when they see one of
these little guys hit a home
run," Grubbs said. "(Buck-
master is) a big guy, but
he's still just 9 years old so
that's a huge play for the
team."
Venice responded to
the pick-me-up with
three more runs by Trey
Schaetzer, Brown and
Sage Lee before the inning


was out. Grubbs earned
his third RBI of the game,
and Brown picked up his
first of two.
From there it was all but
over.
Venice pitcher Roy
Dodge struck out two bat-
ters in a 1-2-3 top of the
fourth. Dodge finished
with three strikeouts and
allowed just one run in
four innings of work.
Buckmaster reached
base on an error to start
the bottom of the fourth,
Dodge walked, and
Schaetzer singled to load
the bases. Cody Dombroski
walked with the bases
loaded for an RBI, Brown
drove in Dodge with a sin-
gle, and Jake Connell hit
one back to the pitcher
that resulted in a run.
With the bases still
loaded and nobody out,
Manieri sent Sarasota pack-
ing with a walk-off single
up the middle to score
Dombroski.

Mote patients developing



whale of an appetite


Handlers at Mote Marine Laboratory, including Mote associate David Smith (facing camera), support the two ailing pygmy killer
whales, which were discovered in trouble on the east coast of Boca Grande and brought to Mote on June 16.

Pygmy killer whales, Pete and Dallas, swim on their own in

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

June 16, within about
five hours, two young
pygmy killer whales were
found stranded near Boca
Grande. Both were taken to
Mote Marine Laboratory's
dolphin and whale hospi-
tal for treatment.
According to Mote's chief
veterinarian, Dr. Charles
Manire, these two are the
first of their species to be
found in this general area in
about a decade.
First to be found was a


two animals were discov-
ered by fishermen who
called the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
Whale ER
When it arrived at Mote,
Pete was thought to have
parasites in the brain as
well as other severe infec-
tions, which were initially
treated with antibiotics.
Both whales were lethargic.
Pete was swimming very
little and Dallas was so
weak it needed to be sup-
ported in the water for the


Mote associate David Smith and an intern support one of the
ailing pygmy killer whales during its first few days at the Mote
Marine Laboratory dolphin and whale hospital.


young adult since given the
nickname of Pete. It was
found in an area of man-
groves on Boca Grande,
near the bridge between
the island and the main-
land. The second, which
was given the nickname of
Dallas, was found beached
nearby, at the water's edge,
about five hours later. The


first three days it was at
Mote. During its first few
days at the dolphin and
whale hospital, Dallas' con-
dition was considered
"guarded," according to a
notation on its medical
records.
In addition to constant
support in the water, Dallas
was being treated with


antibiotics and was being
given fluids
Pete also was treated
with antibiotics and given
fluids as well as around-
the-clock support in the
water. It also was given
medication for severe gas-
tric ulcers. Indication of the
ulcers showed up in an
early exam.
MRI
The evening of June 18,
Dallas, a creature the size of
a dolphin, was taken to
Axcess Diagnostics on
Cattlemen Road for an MRI
(Magnetic Resonance Im-
aging) test. The MRI was
conducted by Dr. Stephen
Miley, the owner of Axcess,
and his associate, neurora-
diologist Dr. Paul Macchi.
Manire was looking for evi-
dence of parasites in the
brain as well as other indi-
cators of the creatures'
condition.
The scan showed a spot
on the brain, a possible
abscess, caused by either
parasites or infection. The
MRI was followed by a con-
sultation with a radiologist
to determine the severity of
the problem and a possible
course of treatment. Man-
ire said that because these
creatures are good at hid-
ing their injuries in the wild
as a means of self-preser-
vation, the first scan was
important and could lead
to a similar study of the
other animal. The veteri-
narian said that, without
the MRI, the only other
way to diagnose the pygmy
whales would have been
after their death. The spe-
cific scanner used, which is
in the Axcess building on
Cattlemen Road, is said to
be one of just three of that
type in the state, according
to Mote spokesman
Nadine Slimak.
Aggressive treatment
was begun and by June 19,
Dallas began to swim on its
own occasionally. By the
20th, it finally started eating
again after being offered


fish and squid. By the 21st,
Dallas literally had devel-
oped a whale of an appetite
and was eating whatever it
was offered, according to its
medical chart.
As Dallas continued to
improve in response to
treatment, water was
added to its tank and its
swimming continued to
improve.
Pete's progress was simi-
lar. Although it was swim-
ming on its own, its white
count was up. It showed lit-
tle interest in food until the
20th, when it too ate the fish
and squid it was offered.
Just four days earlier,
Manire had expressed con-
cern about the whales'
chances for recovery, refer-
ring to their various prob-
lems as "life threatening."
Monitored around the
clock the first few days in
the hospital, Pete and
Dallas seemed to respond
well to the antibiotics
except for a setback experi-
enced by Pete on June 25,
when it appeared the
whale might have been
developing pneumonia. Its
white count was up and it
was not interested in food
as it had been. A change
in the antibiotics seemed
to help and, other than
some lethargy noted in its
record on June 30, the
whale seemed to continue


to improve.
Both whales remain list-
ed in critical condition but
both are eating and swim-
ming on their own.

information, visit www.
mote.org to view the hospi-
tal's online medical jour-
nal, which is updated daily.
About pygmy
killer whales
Regularly found in trop-
ical and sub-tropical ocean
water, pygmy killer whales
are not known to enter
shallow water near the
shore, but instead, normal-
ly remain in deep water,
swimming in large herds.
More closely related to dol-
phins, pygmy killer whales
are similar in size to dol-
phins with dark bodies and
white markings on the
chest and around the
mouth. This information
comes from the National
Audubon Society's "Guide
to Marine Animals of the
World."
Adults can weigh 360-
400 pounds and reach
more than 8 feet in length.
While killer whales have
proven to be gentle giants
that are highly trainable,
such as several named
Shamu, which perform in
daily shows at such marine
parks as SeaWorld Orlando,
there are reports of pygmy


killer whales that have ex-
hibited killer traits, even
eating dolphins on occa-
sion and acting aggressively
toward other marine mam-
mals and a few humans.
One of the most com-
plete internet resources on
these mammals is the Save
the Whales Web site, which
has a fairly extensive bibli-
ography and more infor-
mation about their migra-
tion habits.
Strandings
If you discover a strand-
ed marine mammal such
as a dolphin, pygmy whale,
manatee or a sea turtle, call
Mote's Stranding Investiga-
tions Program pager at
941-988-0212. In other
areas of Florida, call the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
at 888-404-3922.
Do not handle the ani-
mal any more than neces-
sary, but try to shield it
from the sun and, if possi-
ble, protect its skin with
wet towels. If dealing with a
whale or dolphin, try to
keep the blowhole clear.
Keep pets away and try
to remain quiet, to mini-
mize scaring the animal.
For your own protection,
avoid the mouth and tail of
any of these creatures.

Animal abuse, neglect



need never happen


FROM NAPSA

Every dog can have its
day with your help.
While a recent survey
revealed that 88 percent of
American pet owners con-
sidered their animals as
family members, not all
owners, however, have a
place in their hearts and
conscience for their inno-
cent pets who only seek
love and companionship.
What you can do
Experts offer these tips
for anyone who sees or
suspects animal mistreat-
ment:
* Recognize signs of ne-
glect.
While physical abuse
can be visually obvious,
neglect can often go unno-
ticed. Signs of neglect
include an underweight
animal, an animal with
visible, unattended injur-
ies or an animal that is tied
up and left outside with
inadequate food, water or
shelter.
* Know whom to contact.
Compile a list of appro-
priate animal protection
facility phone numbers,
including law enforcement
and humane officers.


* Report what you see or
know.
If you witness animal
abuse or neglect or even
suspect abuse or neglect
by someone, your best
option may be to call in
law enforcement.
Do not try to assess the
situation yourself, as it can
be dangerous.
* Be informed and in-
volved.
Stay aware and share
your knowledge. Get
involved. Sign pledges,
write letters, circulate ani-
mal anti-cruelty e-mails,
volunteer at shelters and
support initiatives to
strengthen anti-cruelty
laws and penalties for
abusers.
What others
are doing
The world's largest no-
kill animal shelter, North
Shore Animal League
America, recently re-
sponded to a rescue
group's plea for help for a
severely neglected, two-
year-old American Pit Bull
Terrier mix.
Starved and suffering
from a severe skin condi-
tion that caused her hair to
fall out, this wonderful dog


Angel.


weighed only 24 pounds,
far from her ideal weight
of 50 to 60 pounds. Tender,
timid and desperate for
love, she was named
"Angel" by her new-found
protectors.
She was evaluated,
medically treated and
rehabilitated. Months la-
ter, nurtured back to
physical and emotional
health, Angel became a
candidate for a "forever"
home, where she would
enjoy the love and protec-

Angel, who was a vic-
tim of abuse and neglect,
has been nurtured back to
wellness.


FROM NAPSA

If you're thinking ahead
and considering what ser-
vices could help you
maintain the quality of life
you'd like as you age, there
is an easy way to find out
what's available.
If you're wondering
how you might find some-
one to help with house-


hold chores or perhaps
you need professional
advice about health care
options or managing
finances for retirement,
you may want to call the
Eldercare Locator at (800)
677-1116. This free service
is the first step to helping
older adults find resources
such as home repair,
transportation, nutritional


meals and employment
services. Such resources
can help older persons live
independently in their
homes and communities
for as long as possible.
The Eldercare Locator
also offers free brochures
for older adults and family
caregivers on topics to dis-
cuss with aging parents,
staying in touch during


crisis situations, home
energy tips to save money
and live safely, and hous-
ing and transportation
options.
The Eldercare Locator
is a public service of the
U.S. Administration on
Aging (AoA) and is admin-
istered by the National
Association of Area Agen-
cies on Aging (n4a).

Watch for heat-related illnesses


A recent bout with
heat exhaustion
reminded me
that summer is here and
along with it comes the
dreaded heat and
humidity combination
that can quickly sap
one's energy and cause
other maladies.
It's easy to understand
how quickly a fisherman
can succumb to one of
the heat-related syn-
dromes associated with
Florida's summers, and
they can be deadly.
Dehydration, heat
cramps, heat exhaustion
and heat stroke are very
real maladies in the
summer sun. Many of
us make the mistake of
not paying attention to
their symptoms or
preparing for their onset.
And some can get into
real trouble, real fast. By
failing to drink enough
water to hydrate, I often
arrive back at the dock
so thirsty and overheated
that all I can think about
is cooling off. I end up
with a thirst that will not
go away, no matter how
much I drink. It's not a
very smart thing to do
and I fear many of you
do the same.
So once again (this will
be an annual column), I
present some tips from
the Mayo Clinic. Please
pay attention to them;
they may save your life.

DEHYDRATION
Failing to take in more
water than your body
uses can lead to dehy-
dration. Even mild
dehydration as little
as a 1 percent to 2
percent loss of your
body weight can sap
your energy and make
you tired. Signs and
symptoms of dehydra-
tion include:


pteo("

P vieo


rfl Qiu Mail 1i'WI I ['m: ll

Mild to excessive
thirst
Fatigue
Headache
Dry mouth
Little or no urination
Muscle weakness
Dizziness

HEAT CRAMPS
Painful, involuntary
muscle spasms that
usually occur during
heavy exercise in hot
environments. Inade-
quate fluid intake often
contributes to heat
cramps. The spasms
may be more intense
and more prolonged
than typical nighttime
leg cramps. Muscles
most often affected
include those in your
calves, arms, abdomen
and back, although heat
cramps may involve any
muscle group involved
in the exercise.
Rest briefly and cool
down.
Drink clear juice or
an electrolyte-contain-
ing sports drink.
Practice gentle,
range-of-motion stretch-
ing and gentle massage
of the affected muscle
group.
If your cramps don't
go away in 1 hour, call
your doctor.

HEAT EXHAUSTION
Signs and symptoms
of heat exhaustion often
begin suddenly, some-


Len LaFlam with a
Spanish mackerel.


times after excessive
exercise, heavy perspira-
tion and inadequate
fluid intake. Signs and
symptoms resemble
those of shock and may
include:
Feeling faint
Nausea
Heavy sweating
Ashen appearance
Rapid, weak heartbeat
Low blood pressure
Cool, moist skin
Low-grade fever
If you suspect heat
exhaustion:
Get out of the sun
and into a shady or air-
conditioned location.
Lie down and elevate
your legs and feet
slightly.
Loosen or remove
your clothing.
Drink cool water, not
iced, or a sport's drink
containing electrolytes.
Cool down by
spraying or sponging
with cool water and
fanning.
Monitor yourself
carefully. Heat exhaus-
tion can quickly become
heatstroke. If you have a
fever greater than 102 F,
fainting, confusion or


seizures occur, dial 911
or call for emergency
medical assistance.

HEATSTROKE
Similar to heat cramps
and heat exhaustion.
What makes heatstroke
much more severe and
potentially life-threaten-
ing is that the body's
normal mechanisms for
dealing with heat stress,
such as sweating and
temperature control, are
lost. The main sign of
heatstroke is a markedly
elevated body tempera-
ture generally greater
than 104 degrees with
changes in mental status
ranging from personality
changes to confusion
and coma. Skin may be
hot and dry, although in
heatstroke caused by
exertion, the skin is
usually moist.
Other signs and
symptoms may include:


Rapid heartbeat
Rapid and shallow
breathing
Elevated or lowered
blood pressure
Cessation of sweating
Irritability, confusion
or unconsciousness
Fainting, which may
be the first sign in older
adults
If you suspect heat-
stroke:
Move the person out
of the sun and into a
shady or air-conditioned
space.
Dial 911 or call for
emergency medical
assistance.
Cool the person by
covering him or her with
damp sheets or by
spraying with cool water.
Direct air onto the
person with a fan or
newspaper.
Please take heed and
stay safe while fishing
this summer.

Finding rays will help you find fish


r ere are so many
variables that can
affect any given
day on an inshore tidal
flat. Wind, tide, water
temperature, cloud
cover, and boat traffic
are just a few that come
immediately to mind.
Some days, Mother
Nature has a way of
opening up the vault
and making it all too
easy and on other days
it seems impossible to
even get a bite. I guess
the point is when we're
trying to figure out the
fish in an area where the
water doesn't get any
deeper than three feet
and includes a tidal
swing of maybe a foot,
consistency can be a
challenge.
There are however a
few constants I have
learned that we can
rely on to help us find
fish day in and day out
in this dynamic and
ever-changing environ-
ment. The presence of
mullet is always impor-
tant and birds like
ospreys working from
up above or herons
stalking the flat are also
great signs. I have really
begun to pay attention
to all the rays I have
been seeing working all
over the flats.
It seems that they're
one of the first predators
to work onto a flat when
the tide begins to rise. At
first, all I thought was
how glad I was to be on
my poling platform and
not wading as some of
these looked downright
intimidating. It was also
at this point that I began
to notice fish like redfish
hanging out around all
the silt the rays kicked
up. You know, one of
those instances where
you had to do a double


u [x afv,Toq


take after realizing that
you just saw two stud-
sized fish hanging with
a ray and by the time
you figured out what
you just saw, they'd
already seen the boat
and moved to the next
ZIP code.
I'm by no means an
expert on rays, but I've
come to realize that
there are three species I
see the most: I believe
they're cow nose,
spotted eagle, and the
infamous sting ray, you
know the one with the
barbed tail that makes
us all wade with Kevlar
wading boots and do
the stingray shuffle. This
is the species I seem to
notice all the redfish
hanging around. Just
like us, reds don't want
to work any harder for a
meal than necessary, so
they like to swim
around and behind the
rays waiting for them to
kick up an easy meal
like a small mud or
swimming crab. Even
though I seem to see
more small rays, say less
than a foot wide,
generally I seem to see
fish hanging around
larger rays that are at
least two feet in diame-
ter. And believe me,
from what I've seen
from the poling plat-
form, there's no short-
age of these large rays
anywhere I seem to go.


r/T' i,


In many ways, it's the
visual nature of the
experience that makes
fishing inshore tidal flats
so unique and also so
challenging. It's impor-
tant to keep in mind
that if you see fish on
the flats, there's a real
good chance they saw
you first. So, it doesn't
hurt to stay alert and try
to take advantage of
some of the clues that
Mother Nature can
provide. I have also seen
snook not too far away
from rays and it's
probably no coinci-
dence that we get
reports throughout the
year of cobia hanging
around rays.
All in all, it's a pattern
that just keeps coming
up and if you're like me,
you can use all the help
you can get. So next
time you see a big ray
that's within casting
distance kicking up
mud, put a cast behind
it. I'll bet that if there's a
red on its tail it's going
to be looking for a meal.

Circumnavigating the Harbor, part 5


Editor's note: Will
White has turned over
five consecutive
columns to Bill Dolan of
Placida. Bill wrote this
account of a four-day
cruise around Charlotte
Harbor for a few 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 4 CONTINUED -
EXPLORATION OF
THE PEACE RIVER
FROM CAYO COSTA
STATE PARK TO THE
NAV-A-GATOR GRILL
IN DESOTO COUNTY
A mile beyond the
Interstate Highway
Bridge the Peace River
becomes rather remote
and the population
density thins consider-
ably. Houses fall away


and the river looks like
a scene from the
Bogart-Hepburn movie
African Queen. Cab-
bage palm trees line
the banks and there are
many open places to
picnic. The enormous
flow of fresh water is
deeply stained with the
tannins generated by
the local flora and one
feels as if one is sailing
in a cup of Lipton's
finest. As the river
progresses northward,
one comes upon the
new and lightly used
facility of Harbour
Heights Park in the
Harbour Heights area
of Port Charlotte. The
park is county owned,
well maintained, with
free dockage for some
15 boats, charcoal
grills, covered eating
area, fresh water,
showers, play ground
facilities and boat
launching ramps.
Although my venture
was taken on a week-


day, I was surprised to
see that there was no
one in the park beyond
a couple fishing from
the dock. I vowed to
remember the location
and thought this would
be an excellent place to
take my afternoon
siesta on the return
trip. After another hour
motor sailing through
the wilds and averaging
about five knots on the
GPS, I came upon the
channel entrance to
the Nav-a-Gator Grille.
The place has free slips
for patrons; the desire
for a well-earned lager
helped me qualify.
The remote Nav-a-
Gator Grille is a funky
little place with beer on
tap, a fry pit with
standard fare and an
Old Florida atmos-
phere. Oh, did I men-
tion the very cold beer
on tap? It is one of
those time portals you
can walk through and
feel as if you've gone
back 50 years in time.
They rent canoes and
kayaks here for further
exploration of the
many side creeks in the


area. One very pleasant
surprise was the fact
that DeSoto County
has added a new park
facility here, complete
with a paved parking
area, free all-night
parking and boat ramp.
It is directly next door
to the Nav-a-Gator.
Refreshed, I decided
it was time to head
back down the Peace
River and enjoy the
view from the cockpit
of the catboat. It was
now three in the
afternoon and my body
was calling out for a
short afternoon nap.
After an hour of motor
sailing, I found the
Harbour Heights Park
area I had passed on


the way up-river. I tied
up the boat and closed
my eyes for a few
minutes. The park has
a pleasant view of the
water with many large
sprawling oaks and I
decided that I would
cook my evening meal
on one of the park's
charcoal grills. The
steak, mashed pota-
toes, onions and
peppers were terrific.
As the sunset was
scheduled for 8:15
p.m., I took a little walk
after dinner and
thoroughly relaxed
before sailing on. I
cleaned up my mess
and headed towards
home. However, the
river is set up with day


channel marks only
and navigating at night
with spotlight in hand
did not seem like a
prudent move. Howev-
er, we had adequate
time to arrive at my
permanent dockage in
Port Charlotte before
dark. Shortly before
reaching my dock, I
was gifted by a spectac-
ular southwest Florida
sunset that formed a
perfect end to the
week. All in all, it was a
memorable side trip
through one of Flori-
da's deep and scenic
rivers with the reward
of a cold lager at one
end. The Peace River
trip is one I certainly
would do again.


In response to a
federal court order, the
U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency has
issued a draft permit for
millions of recreational
vessels for "normal
operational discharges"
that could open a
Pandora's box of com-
pliance problems and
unfairly subject recre-
ational boaters -
including those who
own canoes and kayaks


- to potential nuisance
lawsuits.
The EPA draft puts
boaters and anglers
squarely under new
Clean Water Act regula-
tions that go into effect
September 30, 2008.
The permit requires
boaters to comply with
a set of worrisome
national requirements
as well as additional
state requirements "to
be determined." Penal-


ties carry up to a
$32,500 daily fine for
each violation. Boat
Owners Association of
The United States
(BoatU.S.) is urging all
boaters and anglers to
contact their federal
lawmakers to bring
corrective legislation to
the Senate and House
floor for a full vote as
soon as possible.

It's great to be back fishing again


F orty-six days
without fishing in
the peak of the
Southwest Florida
season is enough to
make any angler cry. But
my suffering was about
to end. I got a surprise
call from Mike Celen-
dano of Gulf Cove. He
was preparing to get rid
of a few "old" rods and
reels. Would I like them?
Since all my rigs were
now underwater in
Charlotte Harbor (the
capsized Gheenoe,
remember?), I definitely
accepted his gracious
offer. OK, now I am
armed and ready to fight
fish, but what about my
emerging medical
problems?
Surprisingly the
doctors gave me a half-


PERMIT
From page 7
The Clean Boating Act
of 2008 S. 2766 in the
Senate and H.R. 5949 in
the House of Represen-
tatives would restore
the federal exemption
for recreational vessels
for "normal operational
discharges" that has
been in existence for
the past 35 years until
the federal courts
recently determined
otherwise.
"Boaters want clean
waters and want to do
their fair share, but the
draft EPA permit
unfairly burdens them
with needless regula-
tion," said BoatU.S. Vice
President of Govern-
ment Affairs Margaret
Podlich. "The federal
courts required EPA to
draft a permitting
regime that puts

with my half-function-
ing heart. And after a
little sweet-talking, my
wife grudgingly gave me
her approval but only
if I didn't go alone! Fate
quickly intervened. My
fishing compare Ed
Wolf called and invited
me out for a shot at his
favorite snapper spot.
He said he could "hear"


under the same penalty
system as corporate
industries even though
discharges from a
rowing dinghy or motor
boat are quite different
than those from a large
commercial ship with
ballast water," said
Podlich.
The draft permit would
allow the EPA, the U.S.
Coast Guard, a state
authority or some private
contractor to inspect a
boat and take discharge
samples. If requested, a
boater would be required
to provide such govern-
ment officials with
information to deter-

"What may appear
quite simple on the
surface will be anything
but in reality," said
Podlich. "What happens
if a neighbor who
perhaps may not
appreciate boats -

soap to wash your boat,

me smiling at the
suggestion. And indeed
I was.
As you know, Wolfmen
don't like going out in
the daylight. So this
morning three hours
before the crack of
dawn, Ed pulled up in
front of my house. To
punish me for talking
about "online purchas-
es," Robert at Fishin'
Franks filled Ed's bucket
with the tiniest shrimp
ever seen on the Gulf
Coast. How small? They
would have passed
through your wife's black
net stockings.
I wore my oldest,
luckiest Flatsmasters ball
cap hoping to spur the
fishing gods' memories

draft permit guidelines,
all of these instances
may be deemed a
violation of the Clean
Water Act," added
Podlich. "Even topping
off a fuel tank, which is
recommended for
winter storage of
today's ethanol-laden
gasoline, could be
considered a violation,"
she added.
Also included in the
draft EPA Permit is the
onerous requirement
that every state must
approve the federal


on, I deserve to hook a
big fish today.").
Upon arrival, Ed and I
stuck four rods each in
the sand and waited for
the action to start. There
was an unexpectedly
strong breeze blowing
directly at the shoreline
that early morning. The
one-ounce weights on
my light tackle weren't
holding. All it took was
one tiny snapper
swimming parallel to the
beach to completely
snarl my lines. After a
few feeble attempts at
untangling, I ended up
cutting all the lines,
bringing them in by
hand, and disposing of
the balled mess.
God bless Ed. He did
his best not to laugh.
Here I am an hour into


permit before this
September 30. Each
state may add on its
own regulations,
potentially creating
multiple requirements
for boaters cruising
between states. After
the initial permit this
fall, the EPA will then
outline for the states
how they can imple-
ment their own permit
systems, which could


the adventure, and I am
already holding a
flashlight in my teeth
trying to knot up new
leaders, weights and
hooks for all of my rigs.
In the interim, he is
snagging fish left and
right. I had to keep
dropping all my gear to
grab one of his rods as it
bent over. He was busy
fighting a fish on anoth-
er of his rods.
That morning Ed
caught a gag grouper,
two snapper, a ladyfish,
a redfish, a snook, and a
stingray the size of
Rhode Island. My only
bite came from the tiny
troublemaking snapper.
Oh, and six fire ant bites
in the parking area as we
loaded the rods to leave.
Speaking of bugs, I


result in additional
state modifications of
the permit require-
ments as well as fees for
boaters.

federal legislators, learn

was trying out a new
DEET-free "all natural"
bug spray sample that
morning. It had a lovely
fragrance. The mosqui-
toes apparently agreed.
I think I contributed
about a pint to their
blood drive that
morning.
To an outsider, this
fishing trip might sound
exasperating. But as a
fisherman, you know
that just "being there"
makes up for any minor
irritations. And after a
46-day absence, all I can
say is it's great to be back

Bow riding may be fun but far too risky


One of my most
common com-
plaints about
recreational boaters is
allowing children and
adults to sit on the bow,
legs spread-eagled
around the center rail
support. I know it is fun
for the rider (most of the
time). Bouncing up and
down as though on a
bucking bronco, leaning
forward to watch the
bow wake, even dragging
one's feet in the water to
catch the cool spray in
your face. I frequently
see this in our canal
systems as well as out on
the open water. Every
time I see it I shudder.


fH'





The vertical bounce
over waves has the
potential to catapult a
rider into the air. A
landing on deck can
cause serious injury and
being thrown overboard
could be even worse.
Drowning, trauma from


impact with your own or
a passing boat, and steel
propellers spinning at
2,000 rpm are all poten-
tial hazards. According
to 2006 statistics, man
overboard was the
leading contributing
factor to drowning
deaths. So leaving your
child or adult guest
vulnerable to a rogue
wave or a passing wake
is a totally irresponsible
act for any boat captain.
Once in a while I
watch Court TV on a
local channel. There is a
segment called Beach
Patrol where they follow
lifeguards and marine
patrols on their daily


duties. It is an eye
opener to see what
seemingly intelligent
people will do out of
carelessness or the
influence of alcohol.
Lack of safe boating
knowledge, loss of focus
on the consequences of
what seems a fun
activity and the glow of
alcohol all add up to
some very severe water-
related accidents.
Recently I turned on
the program just in time
to see the marine patrol
passing a nine-year-old
girl from their rescue boat
to the EMTs waiting on a
marina dock. The little
girl was being tied down


in a set of head and body
restraints on a gumey. It
seems she was out with
her parents and riding on
the bow of the boat. The
wake from a passing boat
caused her father to turn
into it, as most of us
would do. The resulting
bounce of the bow lifted
the girl into the air and
she came down on her
bottom, but at the base
of her spine. As the
EMT's were loading her
into the ambulance she
complained of numb-
ness in her legs and
tingling in her hands.
However, she could move
her arms and felt a touch
on the bottom of her feet,


so hopefully she will
recover.
This brought to mind
another reason why you
should never allow a
person to bow ride on
your boat. That poor
father could never have
imagined the danger he
placed his daughter in.
Hopefully we can learn
from his example and
add another reason to
our list of why the joy of
bow riding is not worth
the risk.

Lake Istokpoga still produces big bass


The Extreme
Tournament Trail
had a tournament
on the 1st of June. The
winners were Buddy
McDuffy and Scott
Desilva with a five-fish
limit weight of over 28
pounds. Many times
Lake Istokpoga produces
five-fish limits over 30
pounds. In 1998 a 10-
pound bass was caught
on a Bill Lewis Rattle-
trap. I was fishing with
James Dyer in 1999 and
he had a fish hooked
that would weigh that
and much more. Our
Dyer Guide Service team
has had several guide
trips out on the same
day and in most cases,
one of our parties caught
a bass over 10 pounds.
There are several lakes
in this area that produce
big fish Lake Arbuckle
in Frostproof and Lake
Josephine between Lake
Placid and Sebring. For
information on these


lakes or any of the lakes
in Central Florida give us
a call at 863-699-9676 or
863-441-3598. The
Kissimmee River runs
through a lot of High-
lands County and there
are many nice ramps on
the river. We can give
you the information on
these as well.
When fishing any of
our Central Florida lakes,
we always want to fish
where there's a breeze. If
we are fishing an area
and there's no breeze, we
will move to another
location where there is a
breeze. The reason is that
the breeze moves the
water and also creates a
current that moves the
bait and baitfish around
creating a feeding mode.
There's usually wind on
all our lakes that makes


ripples on the water. You
just have to move
around until you find it.
If you have a location
where you have found
fish and the water gets
still, move and go back
later. If you've located
fish and have cloud
cover, that will make up
for the wind.
We've been fishing
Lake Kissimmee in the
last few weeks and have
been catching good
numbers of fish, but not
the big fish we normally
catch. A few days ago,
one of us was fishing a
worm, the other a jig
and the bite was a 2 to 1
in favor of the worm.


However, we did catch
most of our big fish on
the jig. Most of the time
we fish a Rattleback jig
by Lunker Lure with a
Charlie's Crawfish trailer.
Sometimes the Rattle-
back makes the differ-
ence. I personally don't
use a rattle in my plastic
worms, but when fishing
thick grass, it would be a
good idea. Topwater
fishing is good early or
late with an Impala
Devils Horse, Zulu
Spook. Some are doing
well on the river with
these baits and also by
fishing a trick worm
along the ledges.

New federal



fishing license


R nald Reagan said
that one of the
pronouncements
most feared by Ameri-
cans is, "We're from the
government and we're
here to help you." In the
next several months
anglers nationwide are
going to have a chance
to experience federal
government "help" with
fishing when most of us
will be required to sign
up for a program titled:
"National Saltwater
Anger Registry Program."
Here's a little back-
ground. For many years
there has been an
outcry among recre-
ational anglers that the
statistics used by the
federal government to
gauge angling effort
and recreational
landings of saltwater
fish are inaccurate. The
backbone of the system
for many years has
been the Marine
Recreational Fishing
Statistical Survey, a
system wherein random
phone calls are made to
coastal households to
survey residents about
their recent fishing
activities, and dockside
creel surveys are made
at popular boat land-
ings to survey angler
success. The MRFSS
program has produced
wild swings from year
to year in the estimates
of both fishing effort
and of landings of many
species. Many of the
estimates produced by
MRFSS seem to fly in
the face of common
sense and consequently
there are large numbers
of anglers and fishery
managers who have


little faith in the system.
Federal fishery
managers were
spurred to action by a ,
2006 report from the
National Academy of
Sciences that validated
many of the concerns of
those who were not
confident in the MRFSS
program. The 2006
report recommended
redesigning the current
survey system, and one
result has been the
decision that we need
to register every angler
who fishes for saltwater
fish in federal waters, or
who fishes in state
waters for saltwater fish
which spawn in fresh
water. Consequently the
plan to establish a
"National Saltwater
Angler Registry Pro-
gram" was hatched.
After reading five
pages of the Federal
Register (50 CFR Part
600 [Docket No.
07-1001548-7827-02] if
you're interested), I've
gleaned the following
tidbits about the
program.
First, this is coming
our way very quickly. As
currently proposed, the
affected anglers would
have to register with the
new program before
their first fishing trip
in 2009.
Second, there is much
discussion about an
aspect of the new
registry that exempts
those states that already
have a state fishing
license. Unfortunately
Floridians are out of
luck because our state
saltwater fishing license
exempts shore bound
anglers, thereby killing


,, Page 13





,, g g|$1 Oil


u ~ m ~ : I~ mm


our chances of gaining
exemption from the
federal angler registry.
I'd guess that there is
very little chance that
Florida will overhaul
the state fishing license
law to do away with this
exemption between
now and January 1, so
Florida anglers who
fish offshore should
plan on registering with
the feds.
Third, registration will
have to be done every
year and while it'll be
free for the first two
years, there is already a
plan to charge money
for the registration by
the third year of the
program, which will be
2011. Registration will
be accomplished either
by calling a toll free
number for the Nation-
al Marine Fisheries
Service, or online at
www.nmfs.noss.gov.
(I checked; the program
is not yet online).
Hopefully the National
Marine Fisheries
Service will be able to
create and staff a
program to efficiently
register millions of
anglers (there are an
estimated 6.7 million
saltwater anglers in
Florida alone) in the
next few months.


Fourth, in Florida the
new registry will only
affect recreational
saltwater anglers who
fish in federal waters of
the Gulf of Mexico or
the Atlantic Ocean in
private boats. In the
Gulf, federal waters are
located between 9 and
200 nautical miles
offshore. Passengers on
charter boats and head
boats will be exempted
because these vessels
already report their
angling effort through
other programs. Also
exempt will be anglers
under the age of 16.
Stay tuned for more
details as the January 1
compliance date grows
near.
Let's go fishing!

W hen .. ..
the word "Little"
W was removed from
the name, so was the last
excuse for not going to the
Venice Theatre the largest
community theater in the U.S.,
per capital and the third
largest community theater no
matter what size city.
With a budget in excess of $3
million, 27 permanent employ-
ees, some 1,700 volunteers
(1,100 active), two stages and
an education program that
includes an accredited theater
tech school, which graduates
journeymen techies, a person
would be foolish to not check
out Venice Theatre.
Year after year, awards
mount up, programs increase
and productions improve. To
see the list of awards, visit
www.venicestage.com. Plan to
be there awhile.
That also is where you can
order season tickets or single
tickets for coming events such
as the Bandana concert July 19
or the summer stock produc-
tion of "Oklahoma," which will
play from July 31-Aug. 9 on the
main stage, or the summer
Rep season in August.
That word "Little" has had lit-
tle to do withVenice Theatre
offerings for years, especially
these past past 12 years under
the leadership of Murray
Chase. Chase also has turned
in some spectacular and on
occasion, even edgy, perfor-
mances as an actor. He will be
back on stage this December
with the theater's associate
artistic director, Allan Kollar, in
a sequel to their "Greater Tuna"
show that earned many laughs,
giggles and guffaws a few years
back.
The Mainstage season opens
Sept. 30 with "Steel Magnolias,"
followed by "The Producers."
Stage II productions in the
Pinkerton Theatre and a full
cabaret lineup add to the vari-
ety of offerings.
Venice Theatre is BIG.

COVER STORY

Let's Go! Page 3


By MARIE MERCHANT
ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR
Turning Leaf Productions
presents its final show of the
Sizzling Summer Series, "A
Salute To The Silver Screen"
starring Valerie Sneade at
8 p.m. Friday Saturday at
the Cultural Center Theater.
Sneade pays tribute to
movies from MGM musicals
to classics such as "Breakfast
At TIffany's" and modern
films, "Valley of The Dolls,"
"Dr. Zhivago," "Dreamgirls,"
"Chicago" and "Footloose."
The show also features a
tribute to Walt Disney as well
as a Judy Garland medley.
"My Mom is a real movie
buff, so movies were a huge
part of my life growing up,"
Sneade recalled. "For
instance, on Sunday after-
noons, Mom would sit me
down on the couch with a
big bowl of popcorn and we
would watch the classics.
You know the ones with
Doris Day, Rock Hudson,
Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart,
Judy Garland, Katherine
Hepburn, Julie Andrews,
Barbra Streisand, Spencer
Tracy, Fred Astaire and
Ginger Rogers, Bing Crosby,
Robert Mitchum and Myrna
Loy, just to mention a few.


Aaah, those were the days. "
Accompanying Sneade will
be Michelle Kasanofsky on
piano, TJ Glowacki on bass
and Dave Rudolph on
drums.
"The show is almost all
new material that has been
arranged by Boston's Jim
Rice. People do not realize
all the work that Jim and I
put into putting together
these shows. I try and find
pieces that are an extension
of who I am as a person and
a performer, while finding
something that the audience
can really relate to and
enjoy," Sneade explained.
"Michelle Kasanofsky will
be playing piano for this
show. She had taken a break
from Turning Leaf
Productions last year and
directed a bunch of shows at
The Venice Little Theatre. I
am so thrilled that she is
back on board with us as we
have such a special connec-
tion on stage, and she is a
phenomenal musician and
singer herself."
Songs include include
"Secret Love," "Moon River,"
"The Trolley Song," "Cheek
To Cheek," "Secret Love,"
"Talk To The Animals,"
"Moon River," "Chim Chim

One of the summer's theatrical highlights is the play reading festival at The Players Theatre


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
One of the summer's theatri-
cal highlights is the annual play
reading festival held at The
Players Theatre in Sarasota.
This year, six plays were cho-
sen from hundreds of entries for
the eighth annual festival,
which began July 7 and contin-
ues through Saturday at the the-


ater, 838 North Tamiami Trail.
Open to Florida Gulfcoast
residents from Tampa to Fort
Myers, the annual competition
showcases the breadth of talent
along the area generally known
as the Cultural Coast.
In a release from the theater,
its artistic director, Jeffrey Kin,
said "I am so impressed with
the writing talent that entered


this year's contest. After the dif-
ficult challenge of narrowing
the field to six, we've involved a
host of new directors and have
cast amazing local actors. This
event just grows and grows!"
Jeremy Beres' play, "Hay
Day," is scheduled for Thursday,
followed on Friday by Corinne
Fleisher's "Earth, Dust and
Dreams" and on Saturday, by M.


John Bohane's "The Slippery
ladies Book Club." Talkback ses-
sions with the playwrights fol-
low each reading.
Play reading presented earli-
er in the week included Hubert
Grissom's "Storm Surge," Peter
Nason's "King Moonracer" and
George Loukides' "The Ludlow
Massacre."
Traditionally, the best of


these plays is selected to be pro-
duced the following year at the
theater.
General admission is $8 per
play or $21 for a three-play
package. For tickets, call the
theater's box office at 941-365-
2494 daily between 10 a.m. and
4 p.m. Tickets also may be pur-
chased at the theater one hour
before each reading.

the Hemingway Lookalike
contest in mid-July, the wet
suit crowd is preparing for the
24th annual Underwater
Music Festival Saturday,
Saturday, in the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary.
Looe Key Reef, 6 miles
south of Big Pine Key, is the
concert site, and the year's
theme is tied to the presiden-
tial elections. Plans call for
appearances by divers por-
traying underwater politicoes
with names like "Barackuda
Obama," "Hillary Clintuna"
and "John McClam."
Underwater revelers might
even see these characters
with underwater musical
instruments.
Some 600 divers and
snorkelers are expected to
show up or, more accurately,
"down" below the surface

will be on hand with tips for
landlubbers and divers alike
so that everyone can contin-

minimizing the human
impact on this ecosystem.
Some years ago, while
snorkeling at the Great
Barrier Reef with a marine
biologist, our group was
advised to be especially care-
ful with our flippers, which
could inflict severe damage
on the living coral if we were
to accidentally kick it while
swimming. The underwater
world is amazing, with its
variety of sea creatures and
underwater plants and, in the
keys, the possibility to see
sunken ships, but leaving it as
found is the real key to pro-
tecting the keys.

operators will take snorkel-

Get Smart (PG-13) B-
When the headquarters of U.S. spy agency
Control is attacked and the identities of its
agents compromised, the Chief (Alan Arkin)
has no choice but to promote his ever-eager
analyst Maxwell Smart (Steve Carell), who has
always dreamt of working in the field alongside
stalwart superstar Agent 23 (Dwayne "The
Rock" Johnson). Smart is partnered instead
with the only other agent whose identity has
not been compromised: the lovely-but-lethal
veteran Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway). Given little
field experience and even less time, Smart-
armed with nothing but a few spy-tech gadgets
and his unbridled enthusiasm-must defeat
KAOS if he is to save the day.

Hancock. Hancock isn't the kind of man who
cares what other people think until the day
that he saves the life of PR executive Ray
Embrey (Jason Bateman), and the sardonic
superhero begins to realize that he may have a
vulnerable side after all. Facing that will be
Hancock's greatest challenge yet and a task
that may prove impossible as Ray's wife, Mary
(Charlize Theron), insists that he's a lost cause.

Bodrov (Prisoner of the Mountains) illuminates
the life and legend of Genghis Khan in his
stunning historical epic, Mongol. Based on
leading scholarly accounts and written by
Bodrov and ArifAliyev, Mongol delves into the
dramatic and harrowing early years of the ruler
who was born as Temudgin in 1162.As it fol-
lows Temudgin from his perilous childhood to
the battle that sealed his destiny, the film
paints a multidimensional portrait of the future
conqueror, revealing him not as the evil brute
of hoary stereotype, but as an inspiring, fear-
less and visionary leader. Mongol shows us the
making of an extraordinary man, and the foun-
dation on which so much of his greatness rest-
ed: his relationship with his wife, Borte, his life-
long love and most trusted advisor.

The Imaginarium is a touchy-feely place


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
There is only one place
where one should experience
a hurricane in Florida this
season the Imaginarium
in Fort Myers.
And once your hair has
been rearranged in the muse-
um's hurricane chamber,
check out the newest addition
to this wonderful hands-on
science museum three
touch tanks.
Dubbed the See to Sea
Touch Tanks, this area of the
museum is fun for kids of all
ages. Several stingrays (with-
out barbs) seem to float and
flutter in their new 600-gallon
home. A 400-gallon tidal pool
tank houses mollusks, urchins
and crabs. There is even a
smaller ADA-accessible
smaller tank, which also
houses crabs and mollusks.
There is no danger of being
knocked down by the surf at
the beach or being stung with
a stingray barb because you
forgot the steps to the Stingray
Shuffle. At the Imaginarium,
in air-conditioned comfort,
you can check out some of
this area's most intriguing
sealife in crystal clear water.
Forty-five minutes past
every hour, there will be
demonstrations and educa-
tional talks about the contents
of the new tanks. Then you are
on your own to meet and greet
these creatures safely. The

days are Southern Stingrays
and Spiny Blue Lobsters plus
a variety of Mexican snails
and a Sargassum Swimming
crab. Spiny blue lobsters are
found in the Indian and other
oceans. They do not have the
giant claws associated with
Maine lobsters.
On other occasions you
might pick up a horseshoe


Janid and local band, the
Armadillo Band.
Concerts from the Heart was

crab or a spotted whelk.
Other tanks in the
museum include one in
which there is a moray eel.
There also is a coral reef dis-
play.
Sit near the aquarium to
watch the nurse shark or visit
the reptile retreat. The muse-
um has slider turtles, catfish
and both a black and a
white swan.
Outside the museum, there
are orange trees and other
items of interest for those
interested in horticulture.
There are even corroded
pipes to study outside -
remnants of the days when
the building housed the local


appreciation for their service
to the people of America.
Organizers are seeking spon-
sors, bands, concessionaires, vet-
eran organizations, or anyone else
who would like to be a part of the
event. It will be a family carnival
atmosphere with civic groups run-
ning fundraising booths, and
bands signing autographs, selling
band merchandise and meeting
the public. For more information,
call 941-423-1266 or e-mail

water treatment plant.
The Imaginarium is a great
road-trip destination. While
there pick up a copy of
future offerings as the
museum almost always has
a traveling show to add to
its own offerings.
There also is a shop where
you can puck up books,
games, toys and other
souvenirs of your visit.
About that hurricane cham-
ber. You will be given goggles
to wear and it is not nearly as
rough as a real hurricane.
Most children want to go in
again and again. They feel the
same way about the indoor
thunderstorm.
