U.S. 41 work likely to last through 2008


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Recent unexpected delays
combined with prolonged peri-
ods of heavy rain have had a rip-
ple effect, resulting in the com-
pletion of U.S. 41 road work in
Nokomis being delayed until at
least the end of this year, accord-
ing to project spokesman Ken
Nelson.
The first major recent delay
arose a few weeks ago when
contractor Hubbard Construc-
tion discovered an old concrete


structure beneath Shakett Creek
and Dona Bay bridges. Accord-
ing to Nelson, nobody was
aware of its existence though it
had possibly been there since
the 1920s.
It resulted in bridge pile-dri-
ving delays, with the contractor
having to bring additional
equipment to excavate and re-
move the debris with conse-
quential delays to subcontrac-
tors. That work has been com-
pleted and the bridgework has
recommended, Nelson said.
A paving operation scheduled


for this week has been delayed
by the heavy and continuous
rains this week. As a result, the
traffic shift planned for this
Sunday at the Colonia intersec-
tion that depended on the
paving being completed has
been postponed till next week.
The shift entails traffic moving
from the west lanes to the new
east lanes.
Good progress has been
made on repaving and installing
new sidewalks and curbs at the

Signs warning about enterococcus bacteria along Venice beaches have
been regularly ignored by beachgoers. This one at Brohard Park beach
was posted Thursday. The warning for the beach at the fishing pier
remains in effect.


Warnings issued at


two more beaches


BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER


Elevated levels of a bacteria
found in feces showed up in
some local waters Thursday,
prompting Sarasota County
health officials to post warnings
at two area beaches.
Tests showed elevated levels
of the bacteria, enterococcus, on
Manasota Key Beach and Bro-
hard Park Beach in southern
Sarasota County.
If swallowed in large amounts,
the contaminated sea water
could sicken people, said Crystal
Bruce, a health educator and
information officer for Sarasota
County Health Department. Chil-
dren are the most vulnerable.


"The average person who
goes out waist deep in the water
won't get ill," she said.
The county posted precau-
tionary signs advising people
not to swim or do water sports.
The beaches remain open. The
Health Department is conduct-
ing follow-up water sampling.
No advisories were posted at
Charlotte County beaches as of
midday Thursday, according to
Scott Schermerhorn, environ-
mental supervisor at the Florida
Department of Health in Char-
lotte County.
"All our beaches are good,"
Schermerhorn said.

The Venice Municipal Airport
is a battleground for those who
want to expand it and those who
want to preserve its current
small-town atmosphere.
Noise, economic growth, un-
sightly buildings and tourism
are now familiar talking points
in the politically charged cam-
paigns. However, one critical
piece of the argument remains
enigmatic: No one knows how
much traffic the airport actually
receives.
The Venice Municipal Airport
does not maintain flight records
of the aircraft on its runways.
With no control tower or flight
documentation required, air-
craft are free to come and go as
they please. The Airport Tenants
Union, a group of pilots who
operate out of Venice Municipal
Airport, says Venice needs to
have a more reliable figure.
According to the Federal Avi-
ation Administration, keeping
an accurate record of aircraft
activity has a significant impact
on investments at all levels of
airport operation.
"Decisions can be made with
more confidence if benefit-cost
analysis is based on accurate
information about use of the
facility," according to an FAA sta-
tistical sampling handbook.

plan, which the city is in the
process of revising, was pre-

three methodologies, it forecast
annual operations ranging from
184,541 to 236,694 in 2007.
Consulting firm MEA-Han-
son, which was hired by the city
to develop the new master plan,
used several forecast models
and data forecast approximately
170,000 total yearly operations
for 2008.


A recent study by the Airport
Tenants Union, however, con-
cluded that the actual current
aircraft traffic figure is signifi-
cantly less.
By observing all aircraft
movement at the airport over a
period from March 3-31, the

'Little' change a big deal to


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Some longtime Venice The-
atre volunteers are unhappy
about the 58-year-old institu-
tion dropping the word "Little"
from its name.
"I fought it from day one,"
actor and theater volunteer Jack
Aland said. "Murray (theater
artistic director Murray Chase)
wanted to do it from day one."
Aland is not so upset about
the change as he is about the
name selected. He would have
preferred Venice Community
Theatre, saying that Venice
Theatre sounds more like the
name of a movie theater. In the
1950s and 1960s, there was a
movie house called the Venice
Theatre where the Bank of
America office is on West Venice

Dredging projects


encounter delays


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Sarasota County came up
with what it thought was a good
idea: facilitate the design of citi-
zen-initiated projects.
Its first approach was to offer
waterfront property owners
along county creeks the oppor-
tunity to have them dredged to
greater depths. The residents
would pay the full cost, and the
county would have the work
done through its Navigable Wat-
erways Maintenance Manage-
ment Program.
Paul Semenec, program man-
ager, said that Sarasota was one
of the first counties to undertake


such a program seven years ago.
Charlotte and Manatee counties
offered similar ones earlier this
year. But Manatee helps to fi-
nance its projects.
"The dredging will increase
property values in this county.
They will, therefore, yield a high-
er property tax," Semenec said.
But Sarasota has no dredging
equipment of its own. So it must
advertise to get dredging com-
panies to bid.
About 1,400 feet of South
Creek west of U.S. 41 on the
Osprey-Nokomis line, the first of
the initial 17 projects under con-
sideration, was scheduled to get

New quadruplets arrive early, healthy


BY TERRY O'CONNOR
STAFF WRITER

In three minutes Tues-
day, the Crissman family
of North Port grew from
three members to seven.


Kevin and Sarah Criss-
man of North Port became
the parents of quadruplets
at Sarasota Memorial
Hospital in just the third
birth of quads in the past
15 years at SMH.


"It's definitely going to
be a fun ride," said Kevin
Crissman. "It was shock-
ing to say the least when
we found out."
Kevin Crissman has a
family history of multiple


births on his side of the
family, while Sarah Criss-
man does not. The odds of
giving birth to quads,
according to Crissman, are
one in 729,000.
"It's still kind of unbeliev-


able," said Peggy Wynne,
great-grandmother to the
Crissman children.
The three boys and a
girl, conceived without
fertility drugs, were deliv-
ered three months early by
Caesarean section. All are
doing well in the neonatal
intensive care unit, accord-
ing to hospital spokes-
woman Kim Savage.
"It was a total shock for
the whole family," Sarah
Crissman wrote on her
Web site before the birth.
"I don't think that shock
ever quite wears off; how-
ever, we are so very excited
about our new additions."
The Crissmans named
the babies Tanner Matthew,
Joel Steven, Sophia Flora
and Wyatt James. The cou-
ple also has a 2-year-old
daughter named Abigail.
Picking out names is
even more complicated
with quads, Kevin Crissman
said.
"It was actually hard,"
he said. "We kicked it
around for quite awhile."
Tanner Matthew was
first born at 8:54 p.m.
weighing 2 pounds 14
ounces. Joel Steven was
born at 8:54 p.m. too,
weighing 2 pounds, 2
ounces
Sophia Flora was born a
minute later, weighing 2
pounds, 11 ounces. The
birth of Wyatt James
closed it out at 8:56 p.m.;


HOW TO HELP
Kevin and Sarah
Crissman now have five
children 2 and younger
after the birth of quadru-
plets Tuesday night at
Sarasota Memorial
Hospital. Donations can
be sent to:

he weighed 2 pounds, 4
ounces.
Dr. Felice Baron, a high-
risk pregnancy specialist,
delivered the children
along with Dr. Kyle Garner.
The Crissmans met
while attending paramedic
school in 2001 and were
married in August 2003.
"We both enjoy dining
out, traveling, music and
movies," Sarah Crissman
wrote on her Web site.
"Both of us have ... worked
together for several years
in the ER at Sarasota
Memorial Hospital."
She is now on medical
leave. Kevin Crissman has
been working construction
jobs out of state and is look-
ing for a job closer to home.

After budget cuts affect-
ing Sarasota County School
District's instructional staff
this spring, and more cut-
backs expected, there are
no plans for salary cuts for
teachers.
Barry Dubin, SC/TA
executive director, said
that in negotiations with
the district "no one is talk-
ing about a rollback of
salaries here."
Dubin said the district
had already cut about $3
million from teachers
when it took away an extra
30 hours of pay for profes-
sional development, which
totaled 3.25 percent of a
teacher's yearly salary.
"That, plus the cuts they
are talking about making
for dependent health
insurance coverage, comes
close to $9 million in cuts
to teachers," Dubin said.
According to Dubin,
this year poses different
problems for the negotia-
tions process.
There may be an over-
collection of taxes when
people pay their property
taxes early, and the district
can't budget the amount
because it is not known
until it happens.


AlWidener, SCSD deputy
chief financial officer, said
Florida law limits the
amount of revenue the
district can budget.
"The reason for this is, if
everyone were to pay their
taxes on time, they would
get a 4-percent discount"
Widener said. "To ensure
the district does not bud-
get a higher amount than
the collected amount, we
can only budget 95 per-
cent of the tax roll."
Last year, the district
saw a difference of about
$2 million received at 96
percent of the taxroll com-
pared to what it had bud-
geted.
On the negative side of
budgeting for the school
district is a possible de-
crease in student enroll-
ment next year.
"There is a concern that
North Port High School
will be down anywhere
from 200 to 400 students,"
Dubin said.
Adding to budgetary
woes, the state may cut
another 2 percent from the
school district's budget
mid-year, which could be
as early as November,
according to Dubin.
"By that time, we would
have already hired the staff
we need for the school
year," he said.

OUR VIEW



Our home is our castle; your home ...


T he prospect ofVenice City Council
adopting all or part of the In-
ternational Property Manage-
ment Code has taken second place on
residents' list of hot issues, and rightly
so. Portions of the code appear onerous
and contrary to the popular perception
that we are allowed to do whatever we
want with our home and land, free from
government interference.
A man's home is his castle, is it not?
Well, sort of. Try building a nuclear reac-
tor in your back yard and get back to us.
This debate brings into play three
conflicting sentiments:
One, nobody wants to live in an area
that looks like a slum.
Two, everyone believes their proper-
ty is at least average, compared to their
neighbors'.
Three, it's perfectly acceptable for the
government to tell other people what to
do, but it has no business giving us orders.
If you want your neighborhood to
look nice, however, there must be stan-
dards defining what is and isn't accept-
able, and someone must be in charge of
enforcing those standards.


It's in enforcement, not law, that
changes are really needed, we think.
The city already has property regula-
tions, staff and a city board to rule on
alleged violations and assess punish-
ment, if appropriate. But the city of
Venice code enforcement department
is a reactive unit; that is, it only checks
out a property when a complaint has
been received.
It seems to us that discussing adop-
tion of the IPMC before trying to get
more out of what's in place now is like
going after a gnat with a shotgun
because you missed it with one swing of
the flyswatter.
If we're serious about keeping Venice
beautiful, before doing anything let's
appoint a citizens task force to review
the code and the way it's enforced now.
Here's what it could consider:
Does the code need to be tweaked? If
so, the IPMC could be one resource for
possible amendments. What our hous-
es look like inside, however, is nobody's
business but ours, as long as we're not
committing crimes and there are no
safety violations


Do we need to change the city's en-
forcement philosophy and staffing? At
least a couple more people would be be
needed if enforcement became proac-
tive, and they'd have to be on the street
looking for violations. Alternatively,
maybe there's a first step to address vio-
lations that would get a significant
number of them resolved without a
code officer going out and writing a
citation.
If we decide to get tough, is there a
better way to handle enforcement
cases? At least at the outset there prob-
ably would be a flood of new cases that
need to be resolved. The code enforce-
ment board would be overwhelmed, as
those volunteers didn't sign up for
extended duty. Besides, they sometimes
find it difficult to punish their fellow res-
idents, and that's understandable. Per-
haps a hearing officer system could be
instituted, for example.
Again, if we're going to crack down, is
there some way to put teeth in the
punishment that can be imposed?
Violators usually are told to correct their
violations (and many do), or the city will


have it done and charge them for the
work. Sometimes they are assessed a
fine as well. There is, however, no col-
lection mechanism.
Money owed becomes a lien on the
property, but not one that can be fore-
closed on; it only gets paid off if the
property is sold, so the owner can con-
vey clear title. There might be a better
way to enforce compliance.
The task force's report would set the
stage for a debate on just how tough we
want and can afford to be. City
revenue is down, expenses are up, and
this might not be a high-enough priori-
ty to merit taking funds away from
other areas.
On the other hand, nicer neighbor-
hoods means higher property values,
which means more tax revenue.
(Bringing in another conflicting senti-
ment: People want the value of their
home to go up and their property tax
bill to go down.)
The current condition of the city is
the product of the current process. If
that's not good enough, something will
need to change.


The airport board


has done its job


AT OVER $140 A BARREL. THE
TIME THE TIN MAN ASKS FOR HIS
OIL CAN, I SAY WE LET HIM RUST


The column printed in
the July 16 Gondolier Sun
by Mayor Ed Martin re-
quires a response.
Section 14-38, Ordi-
nance No. 2005-10, states:
"The purpose of the board
shall be to advise city
council on issues pertain-
ing to the operation and
maintenance of the Venice
Municipal Airport, with
the goal of advancing the
interest of the airport as a
general aviation airport in
the United States Air Trans-
portation System.
"The board shall con-
sider all matters related to
the operation of the Venice
Municipal Airport as
deemed appropriate by
city council, including but
not limited to the follow-
ing: 1). aviation opera-
tions, 2) financial condi-
tion of the airport, 3) air-
port safety, 4) property and
equipment, 5) future plan-
ning, 6) annual airport
budget and 5-year capital
improvement program,
and 7) relationship of the
airport and its impact to
the surrounding commu-
nity. The board shall keep
council informed and
advised as to these mat-
ters."
If, factually, board
members are to accom-
plish their charge, respon-
sibility mandates that
proper evaluation of any
proposal should be pre-
sented with all supporting
materials and with suffi-
cient time to allow objec-
tive analysis. As regards
the request for qualifica-
tion about which the
board is accused of "not
doing its job," board mem-
bers did not receive all
those materials until late
in the afternoon of June 10,
allowing less than 24 hours
for evaluation of a 33-page
document and multiple
supplementary e-mails.
Some did not receive e-
mails until the morning of
the regularly scheduled
AAB meeting on June 11, at
1:30 p.m., at which we
were "strongly advised" to
approve said request.
Interestingly, the MEA


Hanson plan had been
presented to the commu-
nity on many occasions;
discussed and approved
by the AAB; re-evaluated,
as requested by council;
and returned to it for ap-
proval, which was again
denied. The AAB has never
seen the plan the mayor
took to Orlando, or any
plan other than the MEA
Hanson plan.
In actuality, the AAB
indeed, did its job. It evalu-
ated an RFQ with supple-
mentary documents, the
contents of which had al-
ready been deemed unac-
ceptable by the FAA, in a
written response from
director BartVernace. Were
we to support a plan the
board had never seen or
evaluated? Were we to ap-
prove something, the con-
tents of which were previ-
ously determined to be
unacceptable?
Were we to simply rub-
ber stamp a decision we
found to be wrong? Were
we to suggest spending an
additional $450,000 to re-
do a plan on which some
$350,000 had already been
spent?
The board is charged to
advise city council on mat-
ters when given sufficient
time for proper evaluation
and provide an honest
response based upon all
available data. The board
was never presented with
any alternate proposal at
any meeting of the AAB
and has yet to see any
other proposal.
The board has seen a
letter which addressed the
inadequacies of whatever
proposal was made in
Orlando, which we were
not privileged to evaluate
or scrutinize. The board
acted appropriately, given
what we had to evaluate,
and did provide a recom-
mendation.
Because the board's rec-
ommendation did not
agree with the wishes of
council does not mean the
board did not do its job. It
means the board dis-
agreed with the proposal
to redo what has already
been done.
The board disagreed
with the need to spend an
additional $450,000 to
redo a study that has been
done, and properly so, per
stringent FAA guidelines
by a respected and federal-
ly acknowledged company
that was approved by the
Venice City Council previ-

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



If it quacks like a duck..


Editor:
On July 4, Gondolier Sun writer Greg Giles reported on
Venice Council Member Ernie Zavodnyik taking offense
at some folks calling the city's plan to adopt the In-
ternational Property Maintenance Code akin to a com-
munist manifesto. Well, Ernie, perhaps it comes down to
this. Whose property is it?
Section 104.2 of the code states that the code official
shall have the authority as necessary to adopt and pro-
mulgate rules and procedures and interpret and imple-
ment the provisions of this code. Further, section 104.4
gives the official the right to enter and pursue legal
recourse if entry is denied.
This document gives the code official the right to
interpret the code as he chooses. If this government offi-
cial can enter our castles for inspection and make or
change the rules at will, we are not the real owners of the
property. Government is now saying it is our master, and
we are the servants and serfs. This is why those brave
people said this to you, Ernie.
The first plank of "The Communist Manifesto" is the
abolition of all property rights in land and the applica-
tion of all rents (i.e.: taxes) be put to public purposes. Do
we really own our property anymore?
Not too long ago, Ernie would have been tarred and
feathered for attempting to implement this kind of
Marxist/communist law. What saddens me most about
reading this on Independence Day is that most people
celebrating freedom are asleep and not railing against
this code.

Editor:
The machines used in
the 2006 election cycle
were tested by many orga-
nizations and found not to
be at fault. The "under-
vote" was caused by dislike
for both candidates for the

We may face the same
problem with the 2008


candidates for president.
Many conservatives may
decide to sit this one out.
The only reason for them
to vote is to prevent the
Democrat nominee from
winning.
It seems to me the only
time elections are chal-
lenged is when the Dem-
ocrats lose. This fiasco has
cost the taxpayers of Sara-

Development project
wrong for area
Editor:
In the recent past your
newspaper endorsed de-
velopment at the 776/
Manasota Beach Road in-
tersection. Did anyone
take the time to review the
submitted plans?
Being proposed is a 24-
hour 7-Eleven with eight
gas pumps and a bank
right across from the Sara-
sota County scrub jay na-
ture preserve. The plan-
ning commission voted
against this proposal in
the spring as not being a
suitable land use. Com-
munity objections are
many, including environ-
mental, traffic, safety, litter
- items that will produce
a residential neighbor-
hood nightmare.
The proposal provides
for a small ingress/egress
on both 776 and Beach
Road that would serve the
entire complex. Traffic on
both roads would back up
considerably. Landscape
and construction trailers
will have no on-site park-
ing; a logical conclusion
would be parking along
the roadside.
Boats on trailers filling
with gas (the boat ramp is
down the street) would tie


up pumps, causing a fur-
ther traffic backup. The
supply trucks for 7-Eleven
have one space. The plan
is designed to accommo-
date a car and not much
else. Getting to the bank
means going through the
7-Eleven maze.
In the end this project
will cause more accidents,
block roadways, harm our
nature preserve and in-
crease crime and litter -
hardly something your
paper should endorse.
It is not by coincidence
that the commission hear-
ing for the project is
scheduled for a July after-
noon. Most of the commu-
nity will not be heard.
The decision the com-
mission makes will affect
thousands of people for
many lifetimes; let's hope
they get it right.

Florida's


ALAN KUNERTH
GUEST COLUMNIST


The siren song of
"matching federal fund-
ing" is driving Florida onto
the Medicaid rocks.
In an article, Medicaid
Revisited, published in
Modern Healthcare maga-
zine Nov. 11, 2005, then-
Gov. Jeb Bush wrote: 'A
decade ago, Medicaid was
10 percent of the Florida
budget. Today (2005) it
consumes 26 percent. If
no changes are made, the
program will consume
nearly half by 2015."
Evidently, print media
editorial boards were un-
derwhelmed by the news.
Nothing has been done to
undo the grim partnership
between states and the fed-
eral government to avert a
bankruptcy of services to
Florida citizens especial-
ly a floundering education-
al system and its children.
The federal government
has made a Faustian bar-
gain with states: It will
match every dollar states
spent on Medicaid. The
problem is that states must
balance budgets each year;
the federal government
runs up credit card debt fu-
ture generations must pay.
States are in a race to bank-
ruptcy in the Medicaid
derby.
Florida is about to be
overwhelmed by a tsuna-
mi of elderly citizens older
than 65 growing three


best-kept secret


times faster than those 18
and younger. Headlines in
print media and campaign
rhetoric of candidate for
the state Legislature, as us-
ual, focus on Florida's un-
der-performing educa-
tional system.
Two of each five ninth-
graders are failing to reach
grade 12 in four years. The
need for more state fund-
ing for education can only
be shoved aside by the
race to capture ever more
federal matching funds to
feed its Medicaid monster.
Seventy-five percent of
Medicaid funds now pay
for long-term care of Flor-
ida's elderly even after the
monster consumes all but
$35 of the Social Security
benefit each month. The
only control that state leg-
islators seem capable of
exerting on a federal/state
program growing 10 per-
cent a year is to curtail
building permits of nurs-
ing homes. What a travesty
of public policy.
Worse, after 30 years of
marketing, private insur-
ance companies cover
only 10 percent of Amer-
ica's senior households
with long-term-care insur-
ance contracts. And, I pre-
dict, they never will sell
more than one in 10 senior
households on coverages
that steer policyholders
into the dreaded nursing
home at annual premiums
of $3,000 to $8,000.
The federal/state Medi-
caid programs make it
ridiculously easy for elder-
care lawyers to game the
system and qualify clients
for welfare in skilled nurs-
ing homes often result-
ing in "incarcerations" of
citizens who could be
cared for at home or in
assisted living facilities for
several years, if not for life.
And why should children

in two-worker households
take moderately impaired
parents into their homes?
They can be rewarded with
early inheritances for place-
ment of parents in nursing
homes at public expense.
Clever lawyers have spawn-
ed a cottage industry in ar-
rangements for Medicaid
welfare.
What can be done?
While a member of the
Florida Long-Term-Care
Advisory Panel in 1990-
1992, I chaired a subcom-
mittee leading the Depart-
ment of Insurance to re-
quire private LTC nursing
home policies to cover
necessary stays in quali-
fied assisted living facili-
ties. Soon, Floridians were
buying more LTC insur-
ance than states with big-
ger senior populations,
like California and Texas.
ALFs improved their ser-
vices, even establishing
secured wings that could
accommodate residents
well along the eight-year
"road to nowhere."
While serving on the
panel I was amazed to find
that only one of dozens of
national insurers market-
ing the coverages offered a
free-standing home-care
product. It appears that
the residential care poli-
cies would detract from
sales of much more ex-
pensive "comprehensive"
contracts inclusive of
medical care in skilled
nursing homes.
I have proposed a feder-
al/state experimental pro-
gram to Gov. Crist in Sara-
sota. It presents a win-win-
win solution for affordable,
prepaid residential care at
home or in ALFs; reduces
the need for new skilled
care beds in nursing homes;
and conserves funds for
Florida's and the nation's


LTC tsunami during the
next 20 years.
Called OrangeAid, it
would provide Florida res-
idents with what they real-
ly need and deserve: an
affordable way to avoid
the dreaded nursing home
for up to three years at
home paid directly from
Social Security benefits or,
if medically required, in
residential ALFs.
It is not an insurance
product; it is a collective and
economical way to pay for
progressive and debilitating
sicknesses with Social Se-
curity benefits earned over
productive years. It is pro-
jected to be a federal/state
program that will preserve
Florida's eminence as a
premier retirement mecca
as far as the eye can see.
I have personal experi-
ence as a LTC specialist in
the insurance industry
that portends a combina-
tion home/ALF contract
could be marketed by the
state of Florida on the In-
ternet and administered
under contract with a pri-
vate insurance company. I
contend that three-year
contracts could cost less
than 20 percent of private
combination policies man-
dating stays in dreaded
skilled nursing facilities.
Scarce Medicaid funds
could be conserved for cit-
izens truly needing skilled
care after OrangeAid ben-
efits expire. The new pro-
gram could be a win-win-
win program for citizens to
live as comfortably as pos-
sible in residence at home
or in qualified ALFs; con-
serve Medicaid beds; and
help balance state budgets
for education and other
vital state services.

Into the city, or out of the county?

Power mad. City council should be aware that devel-
opers want into city limits because county building
codes are so onerous. Time is money to developers and
county nitpickers can delay projects for weeks or
months, thus increase costs. My church is building a
new sanctuary and is required to spend $75,000 on side-
walks that go nowhere. Now they are telling us how
many bushes and trees we have to plant on our wooded
lot, without any regard to cost of installation and main-
tenance. Give a small person a little power and they can
go crazy.


A shame. I have been
away for a few weeks and
when I returned I made a
beeline for my senior
group at the Salvation
Army. What a difference a
few weeks makes. Before I
went away, we lost our
leader, who was a great gal.
Now they have gotten rid
of the two remaining la-
dies that kept the group
going, although I under-
stand one had surgery on
her foot. The other girl
really gave interesting pro-
grams and always kept us
laughing. I have been told
that she was asked to
leave. Seems to me the joy
in the JOY group has gone.
I guess I will have to find
another group, but I doubt
that I will ever find one as
loving as these girls are. Oh
my, what a shame.
Talking points. Ray-
mond Becket's letter in the
Gondolier Sun employs
typical Republican tactics
and talking points. First, he
uses Obama's middle name,
Hussein, to imply that Bar-
ack is a Muslim, which is
both incorrect and irrele-
vant. Then he uses fuzzy
thinking to accuse the
Democrat of taking both
sides on the abortion rights
issue. Although Barack is
only saying that a man
should take responsibility
when he impregnates a
woman, Becket twists this


to mean that Obama is
admitting that an embryo
is human. Using that logic,
bread dough is bread. Well,
it isn't, unless the baking
progress is allowed to con-
tinue. Finally, I would like
to express my disgust that
single-issue voters like Mr.
Becket, aided by Katherine
Harris, allowed George W
Bush and Darth Cheney to
further big oil Halliburton's
interests by invading oil-
rich Iraq and to widen the
gap between the rich and
the rest of us by giving tax
cuts to the wealthy.

ously.
The fact that the deci-
sion by the board to disap-
prove what it felt was an
erroneous request does
not mean it did not do its
job. It confirms that it real-
ly did do its job. It would
have been irresponsible
for the board to recom-
mend approval of a pro-
posal that was not only
flawed, but fiscally un-
sound and completely un-
necessary.
Further, the AAB did not
reject a study done by the
Airport Tenants Union.
The board accepted the
study.
Any study must be done
in accordance with FAA
guidelines and done in a
fashion similar to other
airports. Anything less is
open to conjecture and is
anecdotal in nature. De-
cisions must be based
upon normalized criteria
and in a manner compara-
ble to other studies in or-
der to be valid. Otherwise,
anecdotal information
may be correct, but not
withstand scientific scruti-
ny.
Finally, one must ques-
tion the rationality and fis-
cal soundness of spending
any additional funds for
another expert redo of
what has already been
done, recognizing that all
proposals will need be pre-
sented to the same FAA
and be judged by the same
criteria as would the MEA
plan.
Difficult economic
times aside, from a point
of cost and effect, this de-
cision exemplifies ex-
tremely poor financial
judgment.

airport and calculated
that, on average, about
108,000 aircraft use the
runways annually.
ATU president Werner
Meyer said his group col-
lected the data to present a
fair assessment of the air-
port's runway usage to the
city.
"Frankly, I've become
resentful of the numbers
coming out over the last
few years," he said, "If
someone goes to a town
hall meeting, they should
be able to get accurate
information about how
much our airport is being
used. People make deci-
sions about how that
money is going to be used
based on the traffic at the
airport."
Finding a trend
So why the disparity be-
tween the currently ac-
cepted figure and the new
ATU figure? Airport Advis-
ory Board member Walter
Hake cited recent leaps in
fuel prices and other oper-
ating costs.
"People just can't afford
to fly as much as they used
to, that's partially why the
numbers are lower," he said.


Others point to the
drop in flight training and
tighter airport security
since Sept. 11, 2001.
Airport Manager Fred
Watts said he acknowl-
edges that the MEA-Han-
son number is higher than
the actual amount of year-
ly traffic but the airport
does not have the re-
sources to regularly track
that information.
"We want to have an
accurate model of data but
the problem is that we don't
have the money to make
that happen," he said.
Meyer said that it took
an all-volunteer staff of 25
ATU members, with a
combined background in
aviation of 140,000 logged
hours, to track the fre-
quency of outgoing and
incoming aircraft through-
out the month.
The count ran on a 12-
hour period, beginning at
either 7 or 8 a.m. and last-
ing to 8 p.m. Meyer said
that they also, on several
occasions, sampled the air
traffic between the hours
of 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. to find a
reliable trend of nighttime
traffic. The ATU found that
the operations were too


few to justify an all-night
vigil, but despite not track-
ing the majority of evening
flights, according to him,
"the survey is accurate to
within a 1-percent margin
of error."
Although these data
have not been accepted as
an official estimate, Meyer
said that he hopes they
will lend more transparen-
cy to future discussions
about the airport.
"We're not trying to force
any kind of political agen-
da; there's no ulterior
motives," he said. "We want
people to have an accurate
idea of how the airport is
being used and what peo-
ple are paying for."
What, if any, implica-
tions will the new num-
bers have for the airport's
development? None, Watts
said.
"The new (ATU) projec-
tion really doesn't have
any impact on how we
operate the airport; it's not
an official count.
"But whether 100 or
100,000 aircraft take off on

Cassariano owners


open Fresco on bypass


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Intending to repeat their
success inVenice, manager
Luca Cassani and chef
Antonio Pariano, owners
of the Cassariano Italian
Eatery, 305-B W Venice
Ave., are opening Fresco
Fine Italian Dining, 1185
U.S. 41 Bypass in the for-
mer El Centenario Mexican
restaurant location.
"Most restaurants in
America provide menus
brought a long time ago, in
1920-30s, but Venice din-
ers enjoy contemporary
Italian food" said Pariano.
With Cassini, he focuses
on healthy foods with no
grease, and using fresh
food, not frozen or pre-
pared foods.
Passani said they had
been looking for some-
thing bigger on the island
but changed their minds,
wanting to preserve their
little restaurant. Fresco
will be casual for the high
volume of traffic using
U.S. 41 Bypass, focusing
on contemporary Italian-
style cooking with family
dinners and a lunch menu
of fresh salads, panini
sandwiches and gourmet
pasta.
Fresco has Italian rustic
d6cor with new furniture
and an upgraded kitchen.
Wine and beer will be
served, but the bar has
been closed to create a
good reputation for family
dining.
There is capacity for
166, but there are 92 seats
and in season there will be
five bistro tables under the
portico.
Two professionals from
Italy, General Manager
Arturo Gualdo, with 20
years at Stars, Washington,
D.C., and Italian Culinary
School graduate Chef
Renata Benday of Cas-
sariano, together with 10
servers, will operate the
restaurant with Cassini
and Pariano's guidance.
Fresco will be open from
11 a.m. Monday through
Saturday and will offer
take-out. Call 244-0586.
Pet resort opens
Veterinarian Dr. Lori
Moore and husband
Lazaro Conde, a veterinary
technician, have opened a
small dog-and-cat board-
ing facility, Sunshine Pet
Resort, 3440 Rustic Road,
North Venice, off Knights
Trail Road.


Raised in Hollywood,
Fla., Moore attended the
University of Georgia,
practiced for 12 years as a
small-animal doctor, then
was a relief doctor for
Atlanta veterinarians.
Moving to Sarasota
County seven years ago,
she continued this service
and provided low-cost
vaccination clinics to pet
stores.
The resort provides
individual care in an open
layout, making pets feel
more at home. State-of-
the-art cat condos with
private bedrooms and lit-
ter boxes allow greater
freedom of movement.
Dog and cat videos play on
television monitors in
each room. Stressed pets
can be isolated in a private
room.
Preparations are being
made for a day-care facili-
ty with grooming and a
playroom.
"Our resort is strictly for
boarding with in-house
veterinary services, but
not a veterinary facility,"
Moore said.
Facility tours are avail-
able. The resort is open
from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
weekdays and Saturdays
by appointment. Call 484-
4861.
Some property
prices rising
The good news is the
median price of three-
and four-bedroom homes
increased, although over-
all property sales were
down slightly in June com-
pared to a year ago,
according to details pro-
vided by the Venice Area
Board of Realtors.
The median price of a
three-bedroom home
increased $40,000, to
$300,000, with four-bed-
room homes gaining
$44,000 to $399,000; two-
bedroom homes fell slight-
ly, by $22,000 to $148,000.
Condo prices fell a further
$5,000, to $180,000.
Overall, property sales
totaled 124, down 18 from
a year ago. And it is taking
longer to sell properties,
with 90 units taking more
than 120 days, compared
to 77 last June.

Coldwell i

BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Moves by two leading real estate
firms in Venice were announced
recently, making downtown the prop-
erty sales headquarters ofVenice.
Coldwell Banker, with 50 agents
in Venice, has leased the former
Mark, Fore & Strike building, 331 W
Venice Ave. Plans entail closing the
South Venice office, 4240 South
Tamiami Trail. The major move will
be from 400 Barcelona Ave. on the
island to West Venice Avenue.
Kathy Lehner, president of Venice
MainStreet Inc. and a broker associ-
ate with Coldwell Banker, welcomed
the news. She said, "I love working
for the company, which has been
around for 100 years, and I am really
looking forward to the move to that
prestigious building on West Venice
Avenue."
Presentation is just as impor-


, Bradway expands


tant as the name, she said, and she
is convinced the move will be
advantageous.
The closure of offices and consol-
idation makes sense with the way
the market is today, according to
Lehner. With the closure of the
South Venice office, an estimated 25
agents will join a similar number at
the new location on West Venice
Avenue.
"Coldwell Banker got its foot in
the door in Venice when it acquired
Bradway Moore and began operat-
ing from their Barcelona Avenue
location," said Lehner.
Subsequently it purchased a
number of smaller realty compa-
nies. Like all realty companies, it has
seen a drop in agents as a result of
the home sales meltdown.
The owner of the Barcelona
Avenue offices is Richard Bradway of
Richard Bradway & Associates.
"I'm happy about it and will be


pleased to get my old offices back,"
he said. "I've already decided my
intentions are to move back into it
and sell or lease my offices on
Tamiami Trail."
He will retain his prime location
at 351 W Venice Ave. and has plans
to convert the 230 South Tamiami
Trail building into condo offices for
doctors or professionals.
In 1996, he with his partner and
wife, Linda, sold their realty busi-
ness, Bradway Moore, to Coldwell
Banker. They worked for eight years
with the company, which leased the
Barcelona Avenue building. On July
24 this year they will celebrate the
four-year anniversary of Richard
Bradway & Associates.
No date for the move was avail-
able, but it is assumed Coldwell
Banker will want to move into the
unoccupied West Venice Avenue
premises prior to the start of the sea-
son in the fall.


Britton's keeps it mostly in the family


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Continuing the family
tradition but offering
important new services for
customers is the objective
of the new team at
Britton's, 1190 E. Venice
Ave. Partners Johnny and
Joni Britton and Mike
Hughes acquired the busi-
ness from Todd Britton on
his recent retirement.
Over the summer
months the store will
undergo a $500,000
revamp to introduce new
ideas and services.
"We are redoing the
exterior and interior of the
building in different col-
ors," said John Britton.
The store redesign will
include using for the first
time both sets of front
doors. Customers will enter
the revamped Britton's
Carpet One Floors or,
when completed, the new
Britton's interior design stu-
dio, leading to an enlarged
home improvement center.
Consolidating store ser-
vices will benefit cus-
tomers, who will be assist-
ed and directed through
the whole process of
redesigning and redeco-
rating their existing or
newly acquired home.
"Home size is immater-
ial, but making sure the
job goes seamlessly is our
priority," said Hughes.
The furniture show-
room is being transformed
into the home design stu-

and improvement studios.


dio. Customers can work
with Joni Britton and a
designer planning their
home interior redesign on
state-of-the-art equipment.
In the adjoining home-
improvement studio, man-
aging partner Hughes will
provide his extensive knowl-
edge of building construc-
tion, redesign, renovation
and upgrading.
"We are now the one-
stop store doing every-
thing from interior trim
and home improvements
to driveways, kitchens and
baths," said Britton.
Both he and Hughes are
Venice High School gradu-


ates. At 20, he joined the
family business, working
with Todd for their father
in their Venice Bypass
store, acquiring it in 1987.
He met his wife, Joni,
when his dad hired her as
a decorator in 1990. In
2000 they moved to North
Florida, opening a gift
accessory store that later
burned down, destroying
the inventory; it was
rebuilt and reopened by
his sister.
M.L. Hughes Builders
constructed more than
100 homes in the Venice
area from 1984 to 2000.
"Existing homes are


getting to the age where
they may need new roofs,
kitchens, baths, flooring,
and with this new project
Britton's is partnering with
our team of plumbing,
painting and electrical
contractors to provide the
complete services," said
Hughes.
Now in its 61st year,
Britton's community-
minded new owners intend
to provide more entities
under one roof, offering
new and comprehensive
services using proven expe-
rienced suppliers and con-
tractors.

The local real estate market as I see it


TIM PARADISE
REAL ESTATE
COLUMNIST


It's all about oil and
the "New Venice." Even if
the price of gasoline does
not continue to escalate,
it is affecting our sur-
roundings and lifestyle.
The use of a credit card at
a gas station defers the
shock of $4-a-gallon auto
fuel, but the end of the
month bill drives it
home.
The way in which we
travel from place to
place is changing dra-
matically: $10 or even $4
at the pump creates a
paramount need for
housing choices closer
to workplace, commodi-


ties, health care and recre-
ation.
Mixed-use neighbor-
hoods in the Venice area
are becoming more
attractive to prospective
buyers. In the very near
future, economical and
environmentally friendly
home features will be
commonplace and gov-
ernment subsidies will
help provide them to
home sellers and buyers.
Our major sources of
ground, air and sea trans-
portation now are pow-
ered by oil-based prod-
ucts, are they not? Our
homes are operated, for
the most part, by similar
sources somewhere in
the oil-supply chain.
In the New Venice,
property values will be
measured, in a large part,
by convenient location
and energy efficiency.
Village concepts, redevel-
opment and drastically
altered central down-
town communities will
enjoy the most demand
where a buyer's lifeline is
reachable by foot, bicycle
and non-gasoline-fueled
vehicles.


This does not imply
that older houses will not
carry appeal. But they
must cut the mustard on
the location and efficien-

cy yardstick. Bringing an
older house up to snuff
on energy issues is a step
in the right direction.
Though our market
does not boast an abun-
dance of public- or busi-
ness-supported trans-
portation, a conscientious
home buyer or owner will
become aware of those
possibilities and accessi-
bility to their use whenev-
er possible. Perhaps gov-
ernment-sponsored mass
transit projects should be
revisited with a sharper
eye on feasibility and effi-
ciency.
Fortunately. we have
enough visionary people
serving in leadership and
governmental capacities
to help guide our local
communities through a
changing environment
caused by the extraordi-
nary and ever-mounting
cost of transportation.
Won't new development
need to become reach-
able to become saleable?


Local travel by scooter,
golf cart and bicycle is an
easier transition in
Florida than in many
other parts of the coun-
try. We are a state of flat
terrain and less-hinder-
ing weather conditions
(think snow). Bicycles
and the other less-pow-
erful vehicles are over-
taxed in the mountains
and the snow belt.
Using the sun as a
power source in our
Florida sunbelt meets,
and often exceeds, the
energy efficiency test
and just makes good
sense. We have more
sunshine here for longer
periods of time than
other places.
Add to that the attrac-
tions of the legendary
South Sarasota County
beaches and parks and it
becomes crystal clear
that it is far better to live
here in challenging eco-
nomic times than else-
where.
The less-oil-dependent
New Venice will be my
Venice and your Venice.
Let's make it the best our
Venice ever.

Winifred V.
Frederiksen
Winifred Holmes Valen-
tine Frederiksen, 89, died
following a stroke on
Wednesday, June 4, 2008,
at Providence Alaska Med-
ical Center in Anchorage,
Alaska. She lived in Venice
from 1979 to 2003.
She was born in Shel-
ton, Conn., on Sept. 29,
1918, and attended Con-
necticut College forWomen
in New London from 1935
to 1939. In 1939, she
moved to NewYork City to
teach physical education
at the Brearley School.


During World War II, she
worked as a quality con-
trol inspector in a
Springfield, Mass., facto-
ry that manufactured
artillery shells. In 1946,
she married Robert C.
Frederiksen, a G.I. who
had served with the Army
Air Corps in India and
China during World War
II. While her husband
used his G.I. benefits to
attend Columbia College
and journalism school,
she attended Columbia's
teacher school for a grad-
uate degree in elemen-
tary physical education.
In 1952, the family
moved to Rhode Island,
where she was a home-
maker and mother for 10
years. In 1962, she
returned to work as a
school librarian and
obtained another gradu-
ate degree in library sci-
ence from the University
of Rhode Island. A few
years later, she decided
to return to her first love:
teaching elementary
physical education, a
career she pursued until
her retirement in 1979.
She moved to Bay Indies
in Venice that year, where
she had an enjoyable
retirement, filled with
good friends and activi-
ties, volunteer work at
the Venice Public Library
and world travel adven-
tures. She moved to
Anchorage in June 2003
to live with her daugh-
ter and grandson. She
remained active at the
Anchorage Senior Center,
playing bridge and card
games for three more
years, then moved on to
Day Break Adult Care for
the last two years of her
life.
She is survived by two

and Eric Terrill Frederik-
sen of Pacifica, Calif.; and
one daughter, Patience
Frederiksen of Anchorage.

MCC enrollment, budget up


FROM MCC

A $41.5 million operat-
ing budget, up from last
year's $40.6 million bud-
get due to enrollment
growth, was approved by
Manatee Community Col-
lege trustees their latest
meeting.
With double-digit per-
centage enrollment increas-
es at MCC, the college
faces the challenge of pro-
viding quality educational
services to more students
with $1.6 million less in
state funds this year.
MCC President Dr.
Sarah H. Pappas described
this year's budget process
as the most difficult and
challenging during her
tenure. Summer enroll-
ment at MCC is up nearly
14 percent in load hours,
double the state average.
"Contrast the enroll-
ment increase to the per
FTE funding, which is at its
lowest level since the
1988-89 academic year
when adjusted for infla-
tion," said MCC Vice
President of Business and
Administrative Services
Dr. Carol Probstfeld.
Approximately 53 per-
cent of revenue for MCC's
operating budget comes
from the state with remain-
ing funds coming largely
from student fees and
tuition. Tuition and other
student fees will provide
44 percent of the college's
revenues, as opposed to 38
percent last year.
A 6-percent load-hour
increase in tuition is
included in the state's
community college fund-
ing package. With in-state
tuition at MCC rising from
$73.82 per hour to $78.24,
a student taking 15 hours
in a term will pay $66.30
more.
Based on current esti-
mates of tuition raises at
Florida public universi-
ties, MCC's per term cost
still is $773.25 less than
the average university
tuition. Out-of-state stu-
dents at MCC will pay
$294.32 per load hour, up
from $271.04. Tuition at
Florida colleges is still


among the lowest in the
nation.
The budget supports
the implementation of an
online degree program,
enhanced network speed
and security, the introduc-
tion of a comprehensive
portal solution and capital
improvements.
Money matters
State Public Education
Capital Outlay funds, which
are separate from the gen-
eral operating budget,
provide $7.9 million for
construction of a Medical
Technology and Simula-
tion Center at MCC Lake-
wood Ranch; $4.6 million
for planning and partial
renovation of the MCC
Bradenton library; and
$2.7 million for general
renovation, remodeling
and deferred maintenance
projects collegewide.
Personnel costs absorb
70 percent of the budget.
Despite state budget cuts,
no layoffs are planned at
MCC.
In lieu of an annual per-
centage increase in salary, a
$500 addition to employ-
ees' base salaries, contin-
gent on state funding and
enrollment, is planned in
January 2009. If the col-
lege's performance goals
are met, another $250 one-
time incentive pay supple-
ment will be paid in
September 2009 to full-
time employees with a pro-
rated supplement for regu-
lar part-time employees.
The college will contin-
ue to pay for health insur-
ance for its employees,
including an expected rate
increase of 12 percent in
January 2009.
MCC's fiscal year runs
from July 1 through June
30. The budget approved
by the district board of
trustees is effective July 1.
Pappas reported on the
status of a proposed
School Board of Sarasota
County science and engi-
neering high school
planned to be built in 2010
adjacent to MCC Venice.
The current proposal calls
for a new loop road and
200-space parking lot


funded by the SBSC and
an easement to the prop-
erty provided by MCC. The
academic partnership with
MCC would include tech-
nology programs at the
high school, dual enroll-
ment classes at MCC, and
a certificate at graduation.
Honored
U.S. Rep. Vernm Buchanan
recently informed Pappas
that two MCC proposals
for federal funding assis-
tance were approved at
the first committee level.
With full approval, MCC
will receive $100,000 for
the Medical Technology
and Simulation Center
and $250,000 for an emer-
gency notification system
using "voice over internet
protocol."
The board also heard
updates on remodeling of
the Music and Theater
Building at MCC Bradenton
scheduled to be complete
for Fall term classes begin-
ning Aug. 18.
An updated master plan
for MCC Lakewood Ranch
was presented. A 25-mem-
ber charette group played
a key role in developing
the ultimate plan, which
includes three classroom
and laboratory buildings,
a centralized courtyard,
and a multistory parking
garage on 10 acres. The
next phase is the second
building, a new Medical
Technology Simulation
Center planned to open
by March 2010.
The board recognized
those who were attending
their last trustees' meeting
in their official capacities.
With Pappas retiring, it
was meeting was her last
as MCC president. Named
the college's fourth presi-
dent in 1997, Pappas over-
saw dramatic growth at
MCC and has 40 years in
Florida's higher education
system.
"Known for her integrity,
fair-minded management
approach and data-driven
accountability, President
Pappas leaves an enviable
legacy as a visionary
leader," read trustee Julie
Fogarty. "(She) has made an
extraordinary impact here
at Manatee Community
College, inspiring excel-
lence, success, collabora-


tion, appreciation, progress,
commitment, initiative and
enthusiasm."
In addition to renaming
the Professional Develop-
ment Center at MCC
Venice in her honor, effec-
tive July 2009, the board
conferred upon Pappas
the title of president emer-
itus.
Farewells
The board also recog-
nized Dr. John Rosen, vice
president of academic
affairs, who retires June 30
after 25 years at MCC.
Rosen knew all four MCC
presidents and was recog-
nized for his student-
focused contributions to
the college.
In his earlier years at
MCC, he held positions as
dean of instruction, dean
of academic affairs and
provost of corporate and
community development,
then called Open Campus.
Rosen helped develop a
federally funded grant
program to bring 21st-
century work skills into
the classroom and was the
first president of the con-
sortium that sponsored
the award-winning Mana-
tee Educational Television.
Special presentations
also were made in recogni-
tion of Fogarty and trustee
Dan Miller, both Braden-
ton residents.
Fogarty, whose term
ended May 31, has been
on the board since 1997.
She originally was appoint-
ed by Gov. Lawton Chiles
and reappointed by Gov.
Jeb Bush.
Miller, former U.S. rep-
resentative from the 13th
District, was appointed by
Gov. Jeb Bush in 2005. Time
constraints and other com-
mitments prompted Mil-
ler to leave before his
term's end date of May 31,
2009.
Fellow trustees described
Fogarty as a quiet board
member whose back-
ground as a Spanish
teacher gave her a unique
perspective on students'
needs and the importance
of maintaining academic
quality. They lauded Miller
as a dedicated pubic ser-
vant who was a friend to the
college while in Congress
and on the MCC board.

SVENICE AMERICAN LEGION POST 159 BASEBALL



Guthrie leads Venice B-team in impressive turnaround


TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


FHSAA


says no way

Venice High School's
Chelsea Zgrabik will not
be allowed to play in the
2008 All American Under
Armour Softball Game,
and it's not because she
hasn't earned it.
The sophomore catch-
er led the state runner-up
Indians in batting average
(.505), home runs (13),
RBIs (44), walks (18), on-
base percentage (.582)
and slugging percentage
(1.055). And she wasn't
too bad defensively,
either. Head Coach Larry
Sandburg thinks she's the
best defensive catcher in
the state.
RISE Magazine thinks
she's pretty good too, and
named Zgrabik one of
the nation's top-30 high
school softball players.
That got her an invitation
to play in the All American
game at Disney's Wide
World of Sports Complex
in Orlando.
The game will be tele-
vised Sunday at 1 p.m. on
ESPNU. But you won't see
Zgrabik or any other
players from the state of
Florida there.
That's because the
Florida High School Ath-
letic Association has a lit-
tle rule: No underclass-
men allowed. Basically, if
Zgrabik plays in the All-
American game, she can't
play at Venice High for a
year.
Why, you ask? Nobody
seems to know.
"It kind of sucks,"
Zgrabik said. "They didn't
tell me [why]. My dad
talked to one of the
[FHSAA] people and they
just said that it's in the
rules that if you're an
underclassman, you can't
play in any type of all-star
game whatsoever."
According to the
FHSAA Handbook, the
rule states that "no stu-
dent at a member school
shall participate on a high
school all-star team in a
sport as a result of his/her
performance as a high
school athlete until the
student completes his/her
interscholastic eligibility
in that sport." Fair
enough, but...
"[That] is not how we
selected our players," said
Phil Wenrer of RISE
Magazine. "[We select
players] based on ASA
tournament play." RISE
appealed the FHSAA's
decision on behalf of
Zgrabik and other Florida
players, but to no avail.
"We appealed, but they
didn't really receive our
appeal," Wenrer said.
"What probably would
have needed to take place
was for each player to
individually appeal, but
there just wasn't time for
that."
So, instead of getting
the opportunity to show-
case her abilities to a
national audience of col-
lege coaches, Zgrabik will
get a letter. I imagine it
will read something like,
"Congratulations for mak-
ing the All-American
team, but your state says
you can't play. Maybe next
time you'll think about
that before living in
Florida."

With a little help from a big-
league ballplayer, the Venice
American Legion Post 159 "B"
baseball team turned their sum-
mer around.
Under the direction of some
former Venice High School stand-
outs, including new junior varsity
coach and former Major League
pitcher Mark Guthrie, the Indians
started off 1-5 but finished strong
with a 12-9-2 record.
Venice put the finishing touch
on a great season with a second-
place finish at a July 4 weekend
tournament in Bradenton. The
Indians went 3-0 in pool play
before falling to Sarasota 1-0 in
the finals. Not too bad for a group
of rising ninth- and 10th-graders.

and Venice Head Coach Craig
Faulkner were teammates at
Venice and later at Louisiana State
University. The former big-lea-
guer didn't let up on a team that
spent most of its games going up
against older, more experienced
players.
"Mark did not let these guys off
the hook," Komaroski said. "He
had high expectations of them
and he wasn't going to say that we
couldn't so something. He was
going to make sure that we did it

Online organ-
donor registry
bill signed

FROM LIFELINK

Gov. Charlie Crist sign-
ed Senate Bill 2630 into
law June 23, providing for
improvements to Florida's
outdated organ and tissue
donor registry.
The biggest change
Floridians will see to the
current registry, which is
now accessible only by vis-
iting a driver license office
or mailing a registry form
into the state, is an online
component, allowing Flor-
idians to register their de-
cision to donate organs 24
hours a day, seven days a
week.
Not only will more po-
tential donors be able to
register their wishes when-
ever they like, recovery
organizations like LifeLink
will always have access to
check the database for a
potential donor's regis-
tered wishes.
The system developed
more than 12 years ago is
often out of service or in-
complete. Additionally, no
longer will the state have
to manually scan donor
wishes into a database
with the hope they can be
matched up with driver
license files, as the new
registry files will be entire-
ly computer generated.
SB 2630 was supported
by longtime donation pro-
ponent State Sen. Steve
Oelrich, whose own son
was a donor after a tragic
accident, and other state
lawmakers and was unan-
imously supported through-
out Florida's House and
Senate.
Changes to the registry
have not yet begun and
will be coordinated by Flor-
ida's Agency for Healthcare
Administration, which over-
sees the donor registry as
well as the education trust
fund receiving contribu-
tions for the public for

George Charette received a 2008 Older Volunteers Enrich America Award sponsored by MetLife Foundation.


BY JESSICA MILLER
INTERN


after practicing forensic
engineering in Mass-
achusetts for over 28
years, George Charette,
76, was not satisfied
with a well-deserved but typ-
ical retirement in North Port,
Florida.
After surpassing person-
al health complications,
Charette wanted to make a
difference in others' lives.
Charette's years of engi-
neering experience improves
the quality of life for individ-
uals in his community.
The hours and hours of
planning, and the numer-
ous devices he constructs
for the disabled, led to the
MetLife Foundation honor-
ing him at the Older Volun-
teers Enrich America Awards
in Washington, D.C., in May
of this year.
The program honors the
exemplary contributions of
older volunteers and pro-
motes volunteering among
older adults nationwide.
Charette was awarded the
2008 Community Champion
Award. The money awarded
to Charette for his vision and
diligence will go towards the
research and development
of his nonprofit organiza-
tion, Medical Engineering
Volunteers of Florida Inc.

Diane Sharp, left, RE.O. president of Chapter GU, Venice, gives a check to Kelley McNeill of
Englewood for her educational expenses. McNeill is enrolled in a two-year nursing pro-
gram at Manatee Community College, Venice campus. The P.E.O. Sisterhood was founded
in 1869 and is organized to help young women with their educational goals.

VOLUNTEERfrom Page lB


Charette has constructed ramps,
electric lifts, step platforms and spe-
cialized beds, which have enhanced
accessibility and mobility for more
than 700 disabled or disadvantaged
clients.
"Patience is the key," Charette
said. "It is not an overnight process."
Charette personally evaluates each
of his clients, and the personal visit
results in the development of their
access to daily life functions.
Special techniques Charette uses
to evaluate the individual include
holding their hands and telling them
to squeeze his.
"You can tell a lot about the per-
son by a hand shake," Charette said.
"I can evaluate not only their person-
ality, but their amount of strength."
Doorways, kitchens, bathrooms,
chairs and motor vehicles can all be
modified to ease the client's life.
Charette has created numerous
one-of-a-kind devices.
Examples include a device that
allows a totally paralyzed man to
have a book in front of him that
turns the pages as he reads, and a


device to permit a woman with
severe back injuries to cook using
her stove by supporting her in a ver-
tical position without pain or fear of
being burned.
The most recent case Charette is
working on is that of a 15-year-old
girl who, when she was born, doc-
tors said only had one year to live.
The girl, referred to him by the
Senior Friendship Centers, is para-
lyzed and blind.
Along with a more accessible
bathtub and a specialized bed,
Charette is constructing a tricycle
that will allow her mother to take the
girl on rides outside.
Charette has met with the girl and
her mother on several occasions.
"I personally meet the individuals
I am going to help in order to evalu-
ate their needs," Charette said. "I
want to enhance their living as
much as I can."
Each case is unique. There is no
specific time slot to complete a pro-
ject. "I work on it until it is most effi-
cient for my client," Charette said.
Charette also provides consulting


services to Habitat for Humanity for
the construction of homes in which
handicapped persons can function.
He was appointed by the past
mayor of the city of Venice as acces-
sibility advisor, which is when he
conducted a full report of the Venice
Avenue bridge.
The Medical Engineering Volun-
teers of Florida Inc. covers clients
from Punta Gorda to Sarasota, and
from Arcadia to the West Coast.
Charette and his board of advisers
have already begun 79 cases this
year, and they expect an estimated
134 satisfied clients in 2008.
MEV would like to credit their
accomplishments to the monetary
support they have received from
Gulf Coast Community Foundation
of Venice, Heath Care Volunteers of
Venice, Venice Golf & Country Club
and the Lions Club of Venice.
"We thank you for helping us help
others," Charette said.
If you should need help in any
way, or wish to offer your services, call
MEV at 800-290-2605 or write to MEV
at PO. Box 486, Venice, FL 34284.


FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY GOVERNMENT

Sarasota County resi-
dents have the opportuni-
ty to improve their neigh-
borhoods with funding
that can help bring their
ideas to life.
The Sarasota County
Neighborhood Grant pro-
gram makes up to $12,000
available for each neigh-
borhood during a grant
cycle. All it takes to put
that resource to work is
attendance at a two-hour
workshop to learn the
application process.
Representatives of the
Neighborhood Grant pro-
gram will conduct a
workshop from 2-4 p.m.
Wednesday, July 23, at the
Sarasota County Adminis-
tration Center, 1660 Ring-
ling Blvd., Sarasota.
Attendance at a work-
shop is a prerequisite to
apply for the grant pro-
gram. If you have attended
a workshop in the past,
attendance at a new work-
shop, while not mandatory,
is beneficial to learn about
new application guide-
lines. Space is limited and
reservations are required.
To see the schedule of grant


classes, go to the county's
Web site at www.scgov.net
and navigate to neighbor-
hood grants using the
County A-Z link.
The workshop is open
to representatives of
neighborhood associa-
tions, homeowner associ-
ations and informal groups
of neighbors who wish to
use the matching grant
program to fulfill needs
in their communities that
preserve character and
value, enhance safety,
build neighborhood lead-
ership, promote healthy
lifestyles or improve the
environment.
Neighborhood groups
can match the county
grant funds with cash, vol-
unteer hours, direct dona-
tions by neighbors, other
grant sources or by dona-
tions of materials and ser-
vices. The county has
$100,000 available for this
grant cycle.
The deadline to apply
for funding during the cur-
rent grant cycle is 5 p.m.
Monday, Aug. 18.
For more information,
call the Sarasota County
Call Center at 861-5000
or send an e-mail to
vfrench@scgov.net.

Safe driving tips


FROM NAPSA


You can drive down
your risk of an accident on
the road if you heed the
advice of some safety-
award-winning truckers:
Be patient and stay
focused.
Look farther ahead -
let your eyes lead your
wheels.
Avoid distractions,
such as cell phones, PDAs
or loud music.
Never drive when tired.
When passing a truck,
don't slide back into the


traffic flow until you can
see both of its headlights
in your rearview mirror.
Remember that blind
spots can prevent a truck
driver from seeing you.
The rule is "if you can't see
the driver in his mirror, he
cannot see you."
These tips come from
the 78 FedEx drivers who
won state driving champi-
onships with their knowl-
edge of the rules of the
road. Collectively, they
have driven more than 92
million miles without an
accident.

r Every '11W
year, the bone-
thinning disease called
osteoporosis causes 1.5
million fractures in this
country. Yet, most of the
women with osteoporosis
have not been diagnosed.
Moreover, many men and
women do not realize that
breaking a bone is often a
warning sign of osteoporosis. In
many cases, a vertebral fracture
will lead to back pain that many
misconstrue as a muscle pull. In
fact, the majority of vertebral
fractures go undiagnosed because
there is usually not a traumatic
event associated with them.
Sometimes, something as
innocuous as coughing can lead to
fracture in those with
osteoporosis. Unfortunately, the
majority of patients over age 50
are not told that a low-trauma
fracture may be a sign of the
disease.

What women should




know about depression


HITS FOR



HOBBYISTS


FROM NAPSA


Learning what you can about
depression is always a smart idea
but it may be even more important
for women.
Statistics show that women are
twice as likely as men to be affected
by depression, regardless of race or
ethnic background. As many as one
in eight women will experience
depression.
"Nearly 18 million Americans
experience depression every year,"
said Ken Duckworth, M.D., medical
director of the National Alliance on
Mental Illness (NAMI). "The good
news is that with a correct diagnosis,
most people can be treated effective-
ly. The bad news is that two-thirds of
all people living with depression
don't get the help they need."
Some experiences related to
depression are unique to women,
including postpartum changes,
infertility and hormonal fluctua-
tions throughout the course of life.
To help women find the resources
they need, NAMI has created a
brochure, "Women and Depression."


PHOTO COURTESY OF NAPSA
Although nearly 18 million Americans
experience depression every year, only
one-third seek help.

"Information in the brochure will
help women to help themselves -
as well as other women," said
Duckworth. "All family members will
benefit by using it as a reference."
Major depression is a medical ill-
ness that affects a person's mind,


mood, body and behavior. It is more
than "feeling down" because of a
recent loss or the result of family,
work or financial stresses; it occurs
when these feelings become more
intense and persist to the point that
they affect daily functioning.
Middle-aged Hispanic women
have the highest rate of depressive
symptoms, followed by middle-aged
African-American women.
Young Asian-American women
have the highest rate of younger
groups and the second-highest rate
of suicide among 15- to 24-year-
olds. American Indians and Alaska
Native adolescents are most likely to
attempt suicide and die from it.
The 13-page brochure highlights
symptoms, causes, women of color,
life stages and treatment, with addi-
tional sections on seeking profes-
sional help, self-help, preventing
recurrent depression and helping
other women.
The brochure's publication was
supported by an educational grant

A model of excitement
FROM NAPSA Em


For baby boomers look-
ing to stay sharp, energize
their time and discover the
rewards that come from
creating something with
their hands, model build-
ing may help put all the
pieces together. For
instance, you can capture
the thrill of your first
Mustang or GTO or
craft something you never
thought you'd own, like a
sleek sailing yacht or a vin-
tage fighter aircraft.
Creating models is a
great way to hone your
fine motor skills while you
educate your mind and
earn the reward of accom-
plishment. You can even
re-create the trains that
became the engines of our
economy and add layouts
complete with cities,
farms, mountains and val-
leys. Model-building pos-

sharp and the hands active.

sibilities are unlimited and
open to your imagination.
A hobby shop is the
place to start; they'll help
you find the models that are
right for your interests and
budget. You'll find every-
thing from plastic and die-
cast replicas to historical,
educational and radio-con-
trolled kits. Another excel-
lent place to explore is
www.myhobbyfun.com,
where you'll also find

The island in the pond behind Al Bosch's house at Southwood in Venice
recently became a social center for the sandhill cranes. One evening
there were 24 of them. As each flock flew in and landed, the whole group
would begin dancing and jumping around. About a week ago they sud-
denly disappeared.

doing so many really great activities. Swimming, rock climbing, dancing, you name it,"
said Stephan. "I knew the Y had summer camps for kids, but until we took the tour, we
really had no idea just how much the YMCA has to offer these kids." And thanks to
the generosity of the Venice Kiwanis Club, any child in the community can partici-

Three pickups and a wannabe


irst, the breaking
news: The brand
new Rick Trewor-
gy's Muscle Car City
Museum will be located
in the former Punta
Gorda Wal-Mart, 3811
Tamiami Trail.
His plans are no longer
a rumor, and Rick is
preparing the facility to
house his 200-plus
Corvettes and other GM
vehicles with a proposed
opening by early January
2009. See the Punta
Gorda Herald for full
details and color photos
as well as coverage by
other Sun papers. Watch
Wheels "You Auto Know"
in the near future for
more information.



With more and more
antique trucks showing
up at collector car events,
I feel it's time to give them
some recognition.
Regretfully today there is
not enough space to
cover more than four.
Perhaps later in the year,
when out-of-state owners
of such handy vehicles
return to our area another
column can be dedicated
to them. I also plan to do
an article about military
jeeps and trucks as
requests have come forth.
Stay tuned.
For now, it's back to
writing about the four-
some shown in the
photos. They are the
property of a variety of
men who all have at least
one thing in common.
Each grew up liking old
cars and light trucks, as
we call them today, but
were everyday trans-
portation of their parents
or relatives when these
fellows rode in them
growing up.
Time, hard work and
success provided the
funds to be able to afford
what impressed their
early years. Sure, they like
collector cars and two of
them have several,
however, it's the trucks
that provide easy fun for
them. It shows on the
faces of all four when
they talk about their
"baby" and a smile comes
forth as soon as they
open the door to sit in the
cab.
Looking at the photo of
the front and grille
section of the three
pickups, you'll see, from
left, a 1952 Ford belong-
ing to Mike Ezell, presi-
dent of the new National
Bank of Southwest
Florida. His relationship
with a similar year and
model began at age 12


9


YOU AUTO
KNOW

Don
Royston


when his Dad taught him
to drive the one he
owned.
When Mike was 15, his
father died and the truck
was sold, but a special
feeling was already set in
his mind regarding that
vintage Ford Fl.
Rather than create a
brief about that truck and
Ezell, the following was
provided to me by this
very accomplished
gentleman: "I saw a
similar truck one day that
I thought was great and
began to want one of my
own. After deciding to get
my own, I had to decide if
a restored truck was what
I wanted or a modified.
Since form follows
function, you need to
decide what you plan to
do with the vehicle.
"I decided I wanted to
drive the truck weekly
versus having a strictly for
show truck. Therefore it
needed to be modernized
to be safer and more
comfortable. I was born
in Florida and grew up
without air conditioning,
but I really enjoy A/C
now. Because I wanted
A/C, the engine needed
to be upgraded.
"Then if you have more
power and speed, the
brakes need to be
upgraded. So at any rate
my truck is a modified
1952. It looks like a
normal 1952 in great
shape but is substantially
modified underneath. It
now has a more modern
Ford V8 engine with
power steering, power
brakes (disc front), an
updated suspension,
automatic transmission,
tilt steering wheel, bucket
seats, power windows,
power seats, cruise
control, stereo with a CD
player and seat belts."
Quite a great little
detailed story about his
very neat piece of yester-
year transportation. Some
other bankers' jaws may
drop when they read this
column over the surprise
to learn this well
groomed, well dressed,
sophisticated banking
professional has a love
affair with such a vehicle.
Why? Because in Char-
lotte County, its hard to
find bankers within the
hobby.
Auto enthusiasts know
and respect him as well as


his pickup.



At center in the photo is
a stock 1968 Ford original
version, the property of
Lou Snyder, 72, a Port
Charlotte resident since
July 4, 1969 when he
came down from Bing-
hamton N.Y. His first trip
was a free one courtesy of
General Development
that resulted in his
purchase of one of their
top-of-the-line houses.
Shortly afterward, he
packed up and drove
down to stay in a 1959
Ford retractable. It was no
more snow for Snyder.
Already an accom-
plished auto mechanic
having learned the trade
from his older brother
and a stint working at a
Lincoln/Mercury dealer
in Endicott, N.Y. This man
quickly found employ-
ment locally. By 1980, Lou
had his own sales and
service business in
Whidden Industrial Park
(which he still operates),
catering to people
wanting to deal directly
with the person who
"turns the wrenches" on
cars they buy or have
maintained.
This truck came to him
from the original owner
in 1974 when there were
only 32,000 miles on the
meter. Now, about
200,000 miles later,
nothing major has ever
been required to be
replaced as this fellow
religiously maintains it in
every way.
His following among
old car/truck fanciers is
unequaled for general
diagnosis and repairs. A
pristine 1957 Thunder-
bird and a very rare 1969
Ford Fairlane convertible
are also in the Snyder
stable. Both, along with
the pickup, often turn up
at events where old cars
gather.



The sharp-looking 1949
Ford pick-up on the right
of the photo is totally
different in many ways
than others of that year.
Here again there's a
special background that
caused this baby to
become a member of the
Dave Schummacher
family.
He, like the other two
owners, is well-known in
Charlotte County having
been a resident for almost
30 years, most of that
time the owner/operator
of Plumbing Doctor and
Plumbing Doctor II,


which he and his wife run with him, I could feel the


as a "hands-on" business.
Dave was, for 20 years,
a volunteer chaplain at
the county jail, something
he liked to do and gave
him much satisfaction
from helping others in
need.
Back to the truck
subject, he too provided
me with a written back-
ground of things that
pertain to this unique
vehicle.
Here's what he wrote: "I
was born in Ohio and
moved to Port Charlotte
in 1979. While growing
up, my uncle owned one
of the oldest Ford dealer-
ships until he passed
away in the '80's. This
prompted my interest in
Fords.
As a kid, I drove a '49
Ford pickup around our
farm long before I was
legally able to drive. I
have loved old Fords ever
since. My wife, Linda,
learned that Lou Snyder
Jr. was rebuilding a 1949
F1 (which was in pieces)
and bought it for my 60th
birthday. It was suppose
to be a 'turn-key' unit, but
as usual, things happened
and it is now a 'work-in-
progress.'
"Because of the exces-
sive rust, the fenders and
hood were replaced with
fiberglass replicas. For
ease of access, the
fiberglass 'clips' to the
engine (a Chevy 350) and
tips forward. The front
suspension was 'donated'
from a Chevy Camaro,
and I have installed
power disc brakes and
power steering. I am
currently working on
installing A/C, power
windows and power door
locks. Even though still a
'work in progress,' it is fun
to drive and carries me to
work and home every
day."
Discussing Dave's text


PHOTOS PROVIDED


affection he has for his
wife and the dream truck.
I'll bet a lot of readers
would like to have a
birthday present like he
received.



That beautiful black
1957 Ford Ranchero (a
pickup wannabe) belongs
to a man who came to
Port Charlotte from the
Andrews Air Base area in
Maryland near Washing-
ton, D.C.
That person is Wendell
Kightlinger, 70, who
served 22 years in the Air
Force, then became a Z
Bart Rustproofing fran-
chise holder for awhile
until the sunshine
beckoned him south in
1978.
Wendell and his wife,
Margaret, bought a home
in Murdock, but it and
the garage were not really
what they wanted, later
during 1985 a 2-plus-acre
property with a pool and
extra garage "turned up."
So, what better to do but
fill them with a 1963
Studebaker Avanti; a 1959
Ford Retractable; two
Chrysler New Yorkers
(one with 9,000 miles)?
Then a 1964 Volvo fast
back appeared, along
with a 1974 Jenson, two
excellent Camaros (one a
Z-28). The other was
Margaret's personal car
purchased new. Sadly, she
passed away and he
literally preserved her
auto, keeping it like a
gem.
It was then Wendell
bought two pickups: a
1953 Chevy and a 1957
Chevrolet plus this
Ranchero that has a
special "hot" engine. The
vehicle was a factory
modified version of Ford's
two-door station wagon,
with the back section of
the top cut off.
Even though this
model had a limited
market for sales, those
who bought them
seemed happy enough to
keep Ranchero in pro-
duction for two more
years, with Ford ceasing
the line at the end of the
1959 run. The fact that
the body lines of the
Fords from 1960 on could
not easily be adapted to
semi-pickup style also
contributed to its
demise. Falcon did,
however come out with a
mini-sized somewhat
Ranchero model, but
nothing, even the 1958-
59 versions, ever had and
still has the image set by
the 1957's like
Kightlinger's.
These four unique
special interest utility
vehicles can be seen on
the roads around Char-
lotte County and at
various cruise-ins,
shows, even at times
parked at grocery stores.
The owners are friendly


people who will gladly
talk with you.

INSIDE THIS EDITION OF SOUTHWEST FLORIDA'S BOATING & FISHING JOURNAL:


Fishermen are known to brag about their
oversized catches, but smaller fish are
often a lot more fun.

If you decide to take Tom Johnson out
fishing, you must be willing to overlook
his tiny little flaws.

The hottest new lure on the market may

Gather a group of
fishermen and it
would be a safe
bet that the conversation
never gets around to the
smallest fish caught. Oh,
there will be plenty of
tales of monster tarpon,
oversized redfish, scary-
big sharks and super
snook, but you'll rarely
hear of 6-inch trout,
puny panfish or any-
thing undersized. And if
you do, it's usually
spoken with disdain. "All
I caught were rats (little
redfish) and schoolie
trout; it was hardly
worth fishing," is a
common statement,
usually muttered with a
touch of disgust.
For some reason there
seems to be a stigma
attached to undersized
fish; it's as if the little
guys somehow reflect on
one's fishing prowess.
"Geez, all I can catch are
little fish; there must be
something wrong," is a
thought that flits
through anglers' minds.
The deed somehow
becomes embarrassing.
But I love little fish and
there are times when
that's all I want to catch.
Sure I spend a good deal
of my time looking for
bragging-sized creatures
and have caught my
share, but I also spend a
lot of time messing with
the little ones. My key to
enjoying those times is
matching my tackle to
small fish I downsize,
if you will.
I love walking or
kayaking around small
freshwater ponds fishing
for small shellcrackers
and bluegills with a 3-
weight fly rod and tiny
popping bugs or a 4-foot
ultra light spinning rod
spooled with 4-pound
test mono and small

Beetle Spins. I can and
do spend hours playing
with small panfish and
little bass. It's a blast a
relative no-brainer -
that relieves stress.
Walking a beach
during the early morn-
ing is also a stress buster.
I carry a light fly rod
while hunting and sight
fishing for snook that
travel in the troughs
along the shoreline.
Sure, most of the fish are
small, but I really don't
care. I enjoy seeing the
fish, casting to them and
occasionally getting one
to eat my offering. It's an
activity that makes me
focus on the task at hand
and not on day-to-day
concerns.
Give me a small
mountain stream away
from the maddening
crowds where I can hike
and cast to 8-inch
beautifully colored
brook trout with small
attractor-style dry flies
and I'll spend all day
there. And I won't even
think of how I'm going to
make my next mortgage
payment.
A bucket of shrimp
and a couple of young-
sters fishing with light
spinning rods and
popping corks from my
boat is all the fun I need
in an outing. Who cares
if all we're catching are
small seatrout, it's a blast
and it does tend to keep

one busy.
I always cast to a small
shark on a flat and I feel
satisfied if it eats my fly.
Yeah, I always cast to a
large shark also, but I
really don't want it to
take my offering.
The other day a friend
and I fished for tarpon.
We stumbled upon an
area that held small
tarpon 20 pounds or
so and stopped to
cast to them. While they
weren't baby tarpon like
the kind found in many
canals, they were small
by Harbor standards. We
had a blast and quite
frankly, it was a very
pleasant break from
fishing for the 100-
pounders. The little


tarpon ate our flies
readily, jumped and
cartwheeled over the
relatively shallow water,
tore line off our reels and
came to the boat quickly.
They offered everything
their larger relatives
bring to the table except
prolonged battles, sweat
drenched clothes and
sore arms on our part.
After one of the tykes
was caught, we were
anxious to catch anoth-
er, and another. We
didn't have to sit in the


boat to rest while
sucking down copious
amounts of Gatorade
and that was welcome.
After a while, my
buddy and I looked at
each other and asked the
obligatory, "Want to go
somewhere else and find
bigger fish?" as if we
were supposed to be
embarrassed by fooling
with small fish. But we
both grinned and said,
"Are you crazy? I'm
having a ball." Yeah,
small fish are a hoot.

I can be such an ingrate ..


There are no
strangers in
foxholes or
fishing boats in Char-
lotte Harbor. I had
never met Craig Bates
from North Port
before the morning of
our initial angling
journey. In response to
my recent begging, he
sent me an e-mail and
agreed to rehearse for
the role of as my
newest fishing partner.
Craig was somewhat
leery about the ven-
ture. All he really knew
about me was that a
wide path of destruc-
tion always followed
in my wake. But he is
brave man you
will see.
The day we chose to
test the waters (and our
compatibility) hap-
pened to be the Sunday
of the 4th of July
holiday weekend. Not
surprisingly, the bait
shops were out of live
shrimp. So we needed
a substitute. I have
never had much luck
with rubber artificial
like the Gulp brand
shrimp. Some people
swear by them. I swear
at them. I am simply
not patient enough to
imitate the tepid
motion of crustaceans.
Out of sheer laziness,
I bought a couple
dozen menhaden at
Eldred's Marina. Go
ahead and laugh. I
know the Harbor is
currently overflowing
with whitebait. But in
my hands, a castnet is
a dangerous weapon. I
bet I couldn't even
bring one on an airline
flight. Luckily, Craig
knows how to get more
than a 5-foot spread
(no, not from his
bookie) on a castnet.


Ef IJ' IJ 1:11" I[tl 1 :1 10 1k Jr,IL


To add to our white-
bait reserves, we
worked an island
shoreline. Craig put me
at the helm. Hey, I told
you he was brave. His
instructions were clear:
Just keep the bow
headed into the incom-
ing tide and stay on top
of the wave trough.
Most of you could
perform this maneuver
in your sleep. But
steering and gear
changing, along with
slow acceleration,
require concentration
and muscle coordina-
tion, which is not really
my strong suit. As Craig
searched the waters for
schools of sizable bait,
I managed to knock
him off balance on the
bow twice.
Still, he let me stay at
the wheel. He asked me
that all-important
paternal question,
"How else are you going
to learn?" He was right,
of course. It's been
proven that repetitive
action trains the body
and the mind for
most people. I usually
need some pain.
As we drifted along
the shoreline, we came
across one dock with
six dozen snook
peeking out from
underneath We tried a
few quick tosses to test
our skills (snook are
not in season) but


soon headed out in
Craig's 150-hp Action
Craft to fight some
flavorful fish.
It turned out that
livebait and holograph-
ic rubber were not on
the menu in Turtle Bay
that morning. Craig
ended up catching 90
percent of his fish with
a small gold spoon and
a YoZuri plug. He also
caught 90 percent of
the fish overall. Less
than two hours into the
trip, Craig had his
grand slam a trout, a
redfish, and a snook -
all released. My major
contributions were a
couple of snot-nosed
catfish one that
swallowed the gold
spoon I borrowed from
Craig's tackle box.
Morning became
afternoon, and the
action was heating up
in the shallow backwa-
ters. Unfortunately, so
was my dysfunctional
body. It had nothing to
do with the sun. I was
wearing proper protec-
tive clothing, my
French Foreign Legion
hat, plenty of sun
block, and I was
drinking fluids con-
stantly. But my internal
combustion engine is
still being heated up
with medication, and I
was feeling kind of
queasy. I wanted to
continue, but eventual-
ly I asked Craig if we
could cut our trip short.
Put this in perspec-
tive: I am the one who
was begging out. We
are using his boat,
motor, gas and fishing
gear. He has a full-time
job and doesn't always
have the opportunity
to go out. The day is
perfect and should not
be wasted by not


fishing. He takes me to | --t I .'
his favorite honey
hole. And how do I
respond this goodwill?
I say, "Take me home
early." I am such an
ingrate. Hope it isn't
the last time I share a
fishing foxhole with
Craig Bates.

Back to Big Pine Key (it's


If you can call two
years in a row a
tradition, then a
pattern has been
established that I hope
goes on forever. It has
turned into a guy thing
where a bunch of
hairy-legged male
types go down to Big
Pine Key to fish, eat,
tell a lot of lies and do
the male bonding
thing. I often compare
this adventure to the
Blazing Saddles movie
scene where the
cowboys were all sitting
around the campfire
together and you know,
bonding. If you have
seen this comedy
classic then you know
what I mean. Local
Cabinets Plus of
Southwest Florida
business owner Jimmy
Fry loosely organized
this no-rules trip. Fry


took his 23-foot bay
boat and as was the
case last year, Pirate
Harbor resident Fred
Hill towed his 32-foot
Contender down to
what many of us think
of as Mecca. Last year I
reported that we
caught dolphin fish -
aka mahi mahi or
dorado until we
could not catch any
more. This year was
about the same,
though we did not


V., 11111 mull ;im


concentrate on dolphin
as much as last year.
The effort on this trip
was to learn how to
catch snapper offshore.
Our primary targets
were mangrove and
yellowtail snapper. It
turns out that the off
shore mangrove
snapper bite was not
due to begin until late
July, so we struck out
on that fish. But using
some trial-and-error
techniques, we did
manage to catch a
significant number of
yellow tail snapper.
There are several keys
to generating a suc-
cessful yellowtail bite.
Knowing where the fish
are located is step one.
We thought we did and
had several GPS
numbers that proved
to be very good.
Second is chum. You

must chum a signifi-
cant amount in order
to get the yellowtails to
come up from their
bottom-dwelling
home. Frozen chum
blocks seem to work
well by putting one out
the back of the boat
and the other in a wire
basket and sending it
down to the bottom
and slowly bringing it
up in order to entice
the yellowtail to travel
up the water column.
Equipment is also very
important. These fish
are line and leader shy
like no other, so going
very light is a must.
One boat seemed to do
well using a 15-pound
leader and a No. 2 or 4


a guy
bait hook, while we
seemed to do best
using 20-pound
fluorocarbon leader
and a No. 4 hook. Still,
it isn't easy and these
fish can be very frus-
trating.
But let's get back to
the eating a lot. Several
nights we took our
fresh, just-caught-that-
day dolphin and
yellowtail to local
restaurants that offer
terrific "you hook 'em,
we cook 'em" dinners.
While bottom fishing,
we did have several
surprises, including
being almost spooled
by a couple of mystery
fish, landing a dolphin
while bottom fishing


thing)
and catching several
reef sharks, Spanish
mackerel and barracu-
da. But having large
permit show up two
days in a row and
aggressively feed on
crabs was a real treat. A
permit is a magnificent
gamefish and I am
happy to report that all
were released after
showing us a good
time.
Until next time, tight
lines and keep your
paddle in the water.

Submarine cars sound like fun


The James Bond
fans among you
will remember a
scene approximately 30
years ago from the
movie "The Spy Who
Loved Me," in which
Bond drove a car off the
end of a pier. As the car
sank beneath the surface
the wheels retracted and
the automobile trans-
formed into a subma-
rine, then a short time
later the transformation
was reversed and Bond
drove the vehicle ashore
onto a swimming beach.
As you may have
guessed, a car with the
ability to transform into
a submarine did not
actually exist and the
subsurface jaunt we saw
on film was accom-
plished through the use
of special effects.
But wait after 30
years, today's technology
has almost caught up to
movie magic. You can
now buy a sports car
that you can drive
directly into the water,
then submerge and pilot
as a submarine. Don't
believe me? Check it out
at www.rinspeed.com/
pages/cars/squba/


pre-squba.htm.
Unlike the James Bond
version where the
beautiful Bond girl
emerged with hairdo
and makeup intact, this
is an open car in which
the occupants don
masks and breathe
compressed air from
self-contained air tanks.
No word on the price of
the new car, but since I
have to ask, I probably
can't afford it.

LORAN/GPS
Most nautical naviga-
tion is accomplished by
GPS, though a few of us
old-timers still have
LORAN receivers in use.
LORAN is a system that
produces position fixes
by simultaneously
tracking the transmis-
sions from several land-
based transmitters.
When GPS became
available most users
switched to the new,
satellite-based system
because it boasted more
universal coverage and a
higher degree of accura-
cy. In recent years the
funding to keep the
LORAN system opera-
tional has been grudg-


ingly provided by
Congress, much to the
relief of LORAN users,
most of whom use the
system either because
it's a good backup in
case GPS goes down or
because they still have
lots of old LORAN
coordinates that cannot
be easily converted to
GPS. Some GPS propo-
nents have found
amusing the gyrations
involved with winning
funding for LORAN
each year, but now GPS
users may find them-
selves in a similar
situation. It seems that
the federal government
is proposing to switch to
new GPS signals called
L2C and L5, and as a
result, the currently
used LI signal may be
terminated, thereby
making a whole genera-
tion of GPS devices
obsolete. No need for
immediate panic
though since the target
date for the changeover
is 2020.

ALASKA
HERRING FISHING
How good can fishing
get? According to an


article in the Anchorage
Daily News back in
March, a group of
herring net boats in
Sitka hit the mother
lode. The Alaska
Department of Fish
and Game scheduled
a 30-minute season
during the peak of the ,
spawning run and more
than 10,000 tons of the
small fish were quickly
netted. Then another
short season was
opened later that day
where "only" about 4000
tons of fish were caught.
The total catch for the
single day of fishing was
a whopping 14,723 tons,
or nearly 30 million
pounds. Afterwards fish
processors were scram-
bling to handle the
massive catch.
Approximately 50
boats participated in
landing the estimated
$5.5 million worth of
fish, but the bulk of the
catch went to less than
a dozen lucky vessels
and crews.
Let's go fishing!

CCA and 4H fishing camp was a hit


On June 10 and 11, the
Charlotte chapter of the
Coastal Conservation
Association Florida, in
conjunction with the 4H
Youth Development
Branch of the University
of Florida's Extension
Service, conducted a
two-day seminar for 18
fourth- and fifth-grade
students covering a
variety of fishing and
conservation topics.
CCA Charlotte and the
USF Extension Services


coordinator, Pamela D.
Phillippe, worked
together to create a
program that included
knot tying, rigging,
casting, conservation
ethics, castnet throwing,
fish identification, and
catch-and-release
practices.


CCA board members
gave presentations. Also,
Charlotte County Sea
Grant Agent Betty
Staugler contributed
with a video and hands-
on presentation of the
relationship of all
biomass creatures to the
health and well-being of
Charlotte Harbor. She
stressed the inter-
relationships of plant
life, invertebrates,
animals, and fish that
make up the fragile


ecosystem in our Harbor
and how it needs our
concern and protection.
Each of the partici-
pants six girls and 12
boys received a fishing
rod and reel, line, leaders,
and tackle boxes filled
with lures and hooks,
thanks to the generous
assistance of Jeff Kincaid,
owner of Captain Ted's in
Port Charlotte. Tackle

Maybe you should just stay in the boat


I'm not easily put off
by most things
associated with the
water I've been
known to do some really
dumb things in the past
with fish.
Like many other
anglers this time of year,
I've been targeting
tarpon. But it's not
tarpon that have me re-
evaluating getting out of
the boat to fish, it's
sharks lots and lots of
sharks of all sizes.
I was lucky to have a
pod of tarpon come by
the boat the other day.
My client and friend cast
and hooked a decent
fish in the 100-pound
class and after a few
spectacular leaps, the
fish settled into a dogged
battle. After a short time
the fish was subdued
enough to bring to the
boat for photos and
release when it
screamed away from us
as if freshly hooked.
From under the boat
shot a very large bull
shark in pursuit. The
shark caught the tarpon
and simply exploded it
into a pink hole in the
water.
A few years ago, my
son hooked a very large
fish, one of those over
150-pound monsters,
and had all he could
handle early in the fight.
About a half hour into a
battle that was going to
take considerably longer,
a big hammerhead
attacked it, shredding its
tail in the process. The
fish was stunned, as
were we, and my son
was able to quickly bring
it to the boat. We broke it
off so it could have a
chance to escape and it
slowly swam away from
us. It made it about 30
feet when the hammer-


head attacked it and
turned the water into a
pink frothy soup. That
gave us quite a startle.
I prefer to tarpon fish
some of our area's quiet
backwaters, away from
the maddening crowds.
Early mornings in the
backwaters as the sun
comes up with tarpon
rolling is a great time,
especially if your boat is
the only one in sight. It's
been fun and produc-
tive; these fish are
undisturbed and eat flies
readily. The downside is
that it only lasts for a few
brief hours. My last half-
dozen or so trips into
these backwaters have
resulted in quite a few
fish and the reason I
may not wade-fish the
rest of the summer.
These backwaters are
absolutely loaded with
sharks, mostly small
blacktips, but there are
enough 4- to 6-foot -
and larger creatures
around to make one
think twice before
stepping out of the boat.
At one point I could
count 15 different sharks
on the surface around
my skiff.
When blind-casting
towards rolling tarpon
one occasionally hooks a
ladyfish or trout a
mild irritation. Most of
these minor annoyances
have been munched in
half by sharks as they
were retrieved to the
boat. The last couple
times out we ran across
sharks tearing into
ladyfish, trout and jacks
as they fed on the
abundant bait pods. The
water's surface was

churned up with fish
eating each other.
Of course we had to
cast into the melee,
resulting in hookups,
cutoffs and excitement.
The little blacktips are
terrific sport and will
readily take a fly, espe-
cially a brightly colored
pattern. Cruising fish,
like the ones seen fining
around the boat, will
also chase down and
strike a fly if they can
see it. Cast close enough
to the fish so it sees the
fly and begin stripping.
Watching one of the
small blacktips "light up"
before it strikes the fly is
very cool. Their runs are


strong and fast and they
are so abundant at
present that it pays to
target them.
In short, they are fun
to catch just don't get
out of the boat.

I've got a crazy idea concerning snook


I have a nutty idea.
How about a one-
month season for
18- to 21-inch snook?
June, July or August
with a one-fish limit,
artificial only with no
treble hooks and
probably just the west
coast of Florida. I'm
told that most if not all
of the small snook are
males. They change
sexes when they get
larger. Crazy! Berserk!
Nutty!


Think about the boost
it would be to the
tourism business. The


kids are on summer
vacation, so it wouldn't
affect their schooling. It
would also be a much-
needed boost to fishing
guides and the many
tackle shops in our area.
I have never seen as
many snook as I've seen
this summer. They're
everywhere, in the
Intracoastal, bays, rivers
and on the beaches. Do
you think this is crazy?
Let's change the
subject. The inshore


fishing in the Venice-
Sarasota-Englewood
area has been very good
the last few weeks.
Anglers have been
catching 2- and 3-
pound mangrove
snappers in the Intra-
coastal on small pinfish.
I didn't believe it at first,
but I've had several
reports. The reports all
said the fish were
caught on sandy
bottom, not in the rocks
as I suspected.


Pompano have been
showing up at the
Venice Municipal Pier
and the Venice Jetty.
They're not staying
around, but fishermen
have been catching a
few. Most have been
caught on sand fleas
cooked, frozen or live if
you can find them.
Spanish mackerel have
been hitting, particular-
ly early in the morning.
The ever-dependable
mangrove snapper have


been hitting greenbacks
or shrimp.
Well, fellow
Sheepsheadites, the
time has come to say
goodbye until next time.
Dave Hack (Mr
Sheepshead) is a whole-
saler of fresh-cooked,
frozen sand fleas, Magic
Formula and other
items. He can be con-
tacted at 941-486-1998,

The confidence factor


T here's an old saying
that fishing lure
companies manu-
facture different varieties
of baits to reel in fisher-
man as well as fish. This
may or may not be true,
but all I can tell you is
that I have observed
firsthand how distinctive
styles and color options
have produced different-
ly under certain condi-
tions. For example,
during the warmer
months when bait is
prevalent, I noticed how
topwater plugs and jerk
baits helped put fish in
the boat. And when it
comes to soft plastic jerk
baits, I have seen certain
colors produce best over
specific bottom cover. In
the backcountry, differ-
ent shades of green, and
motor oil or root beer
combinations have their
particular applications.
For instance, on bar
structures that get a
good flush from clear
water of the open
Harbor, I like using baits
with a green color as
they match the mixed
sand and green grass
that provides the cover


u [~ ia v~ urn


fish like to hold in.
However, if I'm back in
the islands where the
water is more of a tannic
color, I feel more com-
fortable with bait that
matches the darker
environment such as the
root beer-colored baits.
In real clear water such
as on the beach, I feel
more confident throwing
lighter blues or even
clear baits.
It is this confidence
factor that can and will
make the difference. Like
many anglers who like to
throw artificial, I have
accumulated more lures
than I have time to use,
because as new baits
come out, it is only
natural to want to give
them a try. By doing that,


it is easy to neglect baits
we have done well with
in the past. The point of
all this is that in the long
run, it will be the bait
you have the most
confidence in that you
will fish best with. I was
reminded of this last
week while looking for a
few redfish. I spent some
time throwing a couple
old familiar jerk baits. I
rigged them with a
favorite jig head, and
after the first cast, I knew
I had selected the right
baits. Now, even though
this is predominantly
livebait country, more
and more anglers are
beginning to fish
artificial baits, and I
know there are still lots
more who are interested
in learning how to fish
lures. What generally
happens if you put in
enough time, one day
things will just click with
one of the baits you try.
There are definitely
variables such as rod
length, rod action, line
and even leader class
that will affect the way

the lure works. Even the
way we work the rod is
usually distinct between
anglers, so one day the
combination will just
work. On more than one
occasion I stood almost
side-by-side with
someone throwing the
exact bait and watched
him catch fish while I
struggled to get a bite.
They just had the touch
to make that particular
lure work. What's
important to keep in
mind is that if we put in
enough water time, we
will find the right
combination. For me, it
was the Exude RT Slug
and D.O.A. CAL 4-inch
jerk baits rigged with a
Bayou Buck Shrimpaler
2 jig head that provided
the combination.
I know it's tarpon time
right now, but just in
case you feel like chang-
ing up and doing a bit of
backcountry fishing,
keep these thoughts in
mind. First, we have
been finding the best
action wherever mullet
are thickest. Also, if
you're fishing with a
friend, try working the

hit the pier, the class-
room instruction was
put to good use as the
students learned first-
hand how to rig, cast,
land, and release the fish
they caught. At least
seven different species of
fish were brought onto
the pier, including
several good-sized
mangrove snapper.
Hoots and hollers and
exclamations such as,
"What's that?" "Wow!"
and "Cool!" were heard
up and down the pier as
the kids caught fish
using frozen shrimp
from Fishin' Frank's Bait


After thinking about it,
it's probably a good
thing there are so many
different varieties of
artificial baits. It can
only help improve our
odds of finding the right
combination. Most
importantly, just
remember that anyone
who fishes artificial baits
has a go-to or favorite
bait they've eventually
found through trial and


and Tackle of Port
Charlotte, for bait.
With each fish caught,
the smiles on the kid's
faces grew, as did the
rapport between the
instructors and the
young anglers. There
were even stories of "the
big one that got away"
and of course, "it was
THIS BIG!" A group of
true fishermen!
The kids couldn't wait
for the second day's
activities to begin and
they all participated with
thoughtful and often
humorous questions
and responses to the


error. Then, it's all about
the confidence. Come to
think of it, sounds like a
good excuse to get out
on the water and do
some homework.

Vacation in
your backyard

Kim
Cool




Tessica Miller,
our summer intern at the
Venice Gondolier Sun is
writing a series about vacation-
ing in Venice, something that
makes perfect sense, given the
high price of gasoline, not to
mention the "joys" of air travel,
these days.
Vacationing in one's back-
yard is so easy for us here in
Florida. Even back in the
Bronze Age when I was little,
Florida was the premier winter
travel destination for
northerners.
Those were the days when
you could visit the winter quar-
ters of the Greatest Show on
Earth in Venice, check out one
of the state's first theme parks
- Floridaland -in Osprey,
watch a waterski show at
Cypress Gardens, enjoy a caril-
lon concert at Historic Bok
Sanctuary or visit Marineland
near Miami. Not only was gas
inexpensive, but parking was
free at the theme parks and vis-
itors came away with a free
bumper stick proclaiming they
had been there. My father was
always the first to get rid of the
sticker, but not the memories
and movies, which he took at
all those places and more.
Today, Florida is a year-
round destination and, for
those of us who live here, sum-
mer is one of the best times to
enjoy all it has to offer, whether
one takes a short jaunt to
Oscar Scherer State Park in
Osprey, Sunsplash Water Park
in Cape Coral or a longer jaunt
to the Walt DisneyWorld
Resort in Lake BuenaVista,
Universal's theme parks and
hotels in Orlando, Sea World
Orlando or the Kennedy Space
Center, where you can learn all
about the U.S. Space program
and even have lunch with an
astronaut.
Do we not live in the best
state, or what?

Bandana returns to


Venice Theatre Saturday


Let's Go! Page 3


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The oldies rock group,
Bandana, returns to the Venice
Theatre's main stage for the
fifth time at 8 p.m. Saturday.
The first time, the group so
loved in this area opened for
Gary Lewis and the Playboys.
Now, Bandana is the headliner
and its opening act will be
Jimmy Jay and the JayMen.
For 13 years running,
Bandana has won the Reader's
Choice Award given by the
Venice Gondolier Sun. The
band plays at many of the big
events in town and always
draws a crowd. When there is
room, the crowd becomes a
dancing crowd and fans do the
mashed potato and the twist
and all their other favorite sock
hop dances.
"Playing the theater is excit-
ing in itself," lead singer Tony
"Butch" Gerace said. "It is a very
rare occasion when people are
sitting in the audience and it's
quite a challenge. We go out
there and we're on a cloud."
Gerace, who now lives in
Venice, toured for several years
with Sam the Sham and the
Pharaohs. Remember "Wooly
Bully" and "Little Red Riding
Hood?" Gerace sang on the
recording of the latter song in
1966, earning a Gold Record
for his efforts. Both songs are
part of the Bandana repertoire,
which includes popular hits of
the past. Whatever your
favorite rock and roll song,
chances are, Bandana, which
was formed in 1990, has played
it or will play it.
Gerace said every show is
different and that is certainly
part of the group's appeal, but
so is the sound and even the
onstage bantering and the beat.
At outdoor festivals and in
venues where there is room to
dance, fans always are up and


dancing. This year, the group
sailed aboard Carnival Cruise
Line's ship Inspiration with 100
fans. Bandana performed a spe-
cial concert on board, borrow-
ing instruments from the ship's
band to perform for fans. Band
members are already planning
to do it again next year. To reg-
ister, visit
www.bandanaband.com.
Gerace performed with Sam
the Sham from 1966-1969, tour-
ing the world. The group had
armed guards and groupies and
a list of hits. In places like
Manila they had personal ser-
vants. They stayed in the best
hotels and performed for mil-
lions of fans in big halls, arenas
and coliseums.
Sam "the Sham" Samudio,
who lives in California, calls
Gerace on occasion. He too still
performs, using "Wooly Bully"
as his signature song just as
Bandana does.
The two performed together
in Sarasota a few years ago
when Samudio was in town for
an Oldies 108th birthday con-
cert. Seated in the audience,
Gerace was invited to go up on


stage to perform "Wooly Bully"
at the concert.
Bandana members play reg-
ularly throughout the year,
drawing crowds wherever they
go. When not performing, they
blend in to their home commu-
nities in a variety of ways. Two
(Gerace and drummer David
Murabito) do home repairs and
other contract jobs. Guitar
player Larry Kuran owns Kona
Key, a tree store in Murdock.
Keyboardist Steven Shower is
an aluminum consultant. Bass
player Billy "Del-Ray" Smith
supervises a condominium
complex in Englewood.
"This is a fun secondary
career for all of us,"
Gerace said.
Well into its second decade,
the group has an increasingly
large fan base and no end of
new ideas for surprising fans.
Gerace said the group has a
really big surprise planned for
the Venice concert.
Reserved seat admission is

Harley-Davidson raffle to benefit Port Charlotte resident


By TEDDI THOSATH
SUN CORRESPONDENT
When Kathleen McAndrews
helped plan benefits for
friends in need over the years,
she never imagined that
one day, she'd need one
of her own.
But when the 62-year-old
Port Charlotte resident was
diagnosed with neuroen-
docrine cancer in April and
medical bills began to mount,
her friends quickly stepped in,
setting up a fundraiser to
help her out.
"Everyone's been very sup-
portive and we're just hop-
ing to help offset some of the
medical bills," McAndrews
said. "In the first 30 days, it
was over $2,000. And the can-
cer I have is very rare if I
had breast cancer or some-
thing, there are foundations to
help people, but it's too rare."

CALENDAR EXTRA

'Welcome Back From
Iraq' concert
A concert to benefit Iraq war
veterans will be from noon to 8
p.m. Sept. 13 at the Charlotte
County Fairgrounds, 2333 El
Jobean Road (State Road 776),
Port Charlotte featuring country
recording artists Twinkle as well
as the "National Anthem" by
Mike Licklitter (Rebirth
Guitarist) solo, The Armadillo
Band, Rebirth, Janid, Carnival of
Soul and The Jam Band.
The Welcome Back From Iraq
concert's specific goal is to aid
returning veterans and families
from all armed services. It is a
Ticker-tape parade of sorts and
celebration of their return to
show appreciation for their ser-
vice to the people of America.
Organizers are seeking spon-
sors, bands, concessionaires,
veteran organizations, or anyone
else who would like to be a part
of the event. It will be a family
carnival atmosphere with civic
groups running fundraising


McAndrews' cancer origi-
nates from the hormone-pro-
ducing cells of the body's
neuroendocrine system -
cells that are a cross between
traditional hormone-produc-
ing cells and nerve cells,
according to the American
Cancer Association. Her doctors
gave her 12-15 months to live.
"I'm not happy about that,
but I just keep chugging, and
try to make every day good.
My family has someone with
me at all times. We're very
close, and we try to have fun
every day," said McAndrews,
whose three daughters and
granddaughter, as well as her
sisters, have been visiting in
shifts since the diagnosis.
From noon to 6 p.m. Sunday
at the Slip-Not Lounge in
Punta Gorda, a benefit
fundraiser is planned for
McAndrews, including an auc-



booths, and bands signing auto-
graphs, selling band merchan-
dise and meeting the public. For


tion, a 50/50 raffle and live
music. And for a $100 dona-
tion, people can get a ticket
entering them in the drawing
for a 2008 Harley-Davidson
FXDL Low Rider, donated by
the Black Widow Harley-
Davidson/Buell of Port
Charlotte.
Only 500 tickets will be sold
for the 96-cubic-inch engine,
six-speed transmission, fully
loaded motorcycle. The draw-
ing is planned for Aug. 17 at
the Slip-Not. All proceeds ben-
efit the Kathy McAndrews
Cancer Fund.
"We're hoping to raise
money for her treatments and
are trying everything. There's
no funding for her," said "Fire"
James, a longtime friend,
about McAndrews. 'As sick as
she is, she's worried about
everyone around her she's
really, really a good person."

South Beach becoming backpackers' spot with hostels


By SUZETTE LABOY
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
MIAMI BEACH Charity
Simon is sharing a bedroom
and a bathroom with two
other young women she has
never met during her stay at
the Tropics Hotel & Hostel in
Miami Beach. But that's fine
with her since she is saving a
ton of money every night.
Simon, who is from
Germany, used to stay in
four-star hotels until she
found out about hostels,
which offer low-price lodg-
ing and the chance to make
new friends.
"It started with I wanted to
travel around the world as
much as possible," said
Simon, who declined to give
her age. "I asked what is it all
about? They said a hostel is
where you save first of all a
lot of money, where you
meet a lot of people interna-
tional from all over."
With its Art Deco build-
ings, bikini-clad women and
late-night party scene,
experts say South Beach is
becoming a hot tourist
destination for young
travelers looking to spend
less money on where they
are going to sleep and
more on sightseeing.
Anywhere between three
to 14 travelers are cramped
in one room at a hostel,
sleeping on bunk beds. A
room with 12 beds can run
for $18 a night per person;
an eight-bed room is $18;
$30-$40 for smaller rooms.
At Jazz on South Beach
Hostel, some rooms are
divided by gender (four or
six-bed rooms for women)
while other rooms are
mixed. Depending on occu-
pancy, and if there are any
empty rooms, people who
are traveling together can
request to room together -


Here are a few hostels in South Florida and the Everglades, with per-
person rates for dormitory-style bedrooms. The prices also depend on
the season:
TROPICS HOTEL & HOSTEL: 1550 Collins Ave., Miami Beach,
www.tropicshotel.com or 305-531-0361. Rates: $27-$34.
JAZZ ON SOUTH BEACH HOSTEL: 321 Collins Ave., Miami Beach,
www.jazzhostels.com/jazzsouthbeach.php or 305-672-2137. Rates:
$19-$35.
SOUTH BEACH HOSTEL: 235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach,
www.thesouthbeachhostel.com or 305-534-6669. Rates: $22 and up.
EVERGLADES HOSTEL: 20 S.W. Second Ave., Florida City,
www.evergladeshostel.com or 305-248-1122. Rates: $22-$25.


just like they would in a
hotel.
"But the point of the hostel
is to meet other people,"
notes general manager
Bobby Gera. "Or they can
just pay for the rest of the
beds in the room," essential-
ly turning the dorm room
into a private room.
Some hostels on South
Beach offer private bath-
rooms with each room and
have individual wall units or
central air conditioning for
those hot Miami nights.
There are also private
rooms for two-three people.
Those are popular, hostel
operators say, in the slow
season when travelers want
to save some money but still
take in the experience. Those
rooms can run $100-$125
per night still cheaper than
most hotels.
Visitors are provided with
bedsheets, a towel and a
locker (bring your own lock)
to store their belongings
while out exploring. Some
hostels have a kitchen for
visitors to prepare their own
food, while most offer
computers with Internet
access and a lounge area
to watch television.
The idea has always been
more popular in Europe and
Asia, where the beds are
seen as a cheap rest stop.


But hostels on South Beach
focus on creating a sense of
community by organizing
trips to the Florida Keys or
Fort Lauderdale, enjoying
the Miami club scene with-
out waiting in line, or by
hosting Sunday beach par-
ties on the sand.
And at $30 a night per per-
son sometimes even as
low as $16 the American
hostel market is starting to
come into play.
Travis Lajoy, general man-
ager of South Beach Hostel,
said six years ago there were
only three or four in the area
that advertised as a hostel in
Miami. Today, there are
more than a dozen. "That's
insane. You know it's 300
percent more competition
than there was when we first
started," he said.
The hosteling industry in
the U.S. generated $17.8 mil-
lion for the 2007 fiscal year,
which ended March 31,
according to Hostelling
International USA, a non-
profit hostel organization
which oversees the
largest network of hostels
in the U.S.
But some hostels are not
members of the organiza-
tion, like many in Miami
Beach, and there is no asso-
ciation that keeps track of
any industry data.


Hotel experts note that the
industry is going through a
transformation, especially in
South Florida, where dis-
count hotels are now offer-
ing hostel room prices.
"Discount hotels are say-
ing, 'I don't want to convert
fully to a hostel because of
the connotation that comes
with that, but I want to pro-
vide hostel rooms,"' said
Andrew Wharton, managing
director for the accounting
firm KPMG LLP, and is
responsible for the real
estate and hospitality prac-
tice in the Southeast.
Plus, older property own-
ers in Miami Beach are real-
izing they may not have the
cash flow to pump more
money into renovating their
buildings. So owners are
looking at converting to a
hostel as a way to "put more
heads in beds and pack the
square footage," he said.
Take a double-room that
was once renting for $100 a
night. When you put six peo-


ple in that one room and
charge $20 a night per per-
son, you are increasing your
revenue by 20 percent.
But one expert says it will
be difficult to purchase a
new building in the hot
South Beach market and
make a profit if it is turned
into a hostel because it just
does not pay enough.
"I don't see how anyone
can make a youth hostel in
South Beach and make a
dollar if they haven't had the
building for a while," said
Hank Freid, president and
owner of Impulsive Group,
which owns and operates
hotels and hostels in New
York City.
He said hostels may be
economically feasible
because "the real hostels are
nothing fancy," and it would
cost less to fix up than a
hotel. But he noted that "a
lot of kids who do backpack-
ing want to go to a nice, safe

place." Some hostels in New
York, he said, have doormen
who help with luggage and
others have 24-hour security
- which is not the case in
Miami.
Mark Vidalin, of Hostelling
International USA, said
Miami is a "funny market"
because of the amount of
affordable hotels in the area,
and the fact that backpack-
ers are expecting better
quality than what they are
getting with the hostels here.
He said some would not
meet the health and safety
standards HI sets forth.


Motorcoach trip to
Georgia planned
The Burnt Store
Presbyterian Church Travel
Team has planned a trip from
Oct. 21-24 to see historic
Savannah and quaint Jekyll
Island in Georgia.
Highlights of the trip
include a narrated trolley tour

one of the historic homes, a
river cruise, and a tram tour of
Jekyll Island that will provide a
glimpse into the lives of some
of the nation's 19th century
wealthiest citizens like
J.P. Morgan and William
Rockefeller.
The trip cost is $589 per
person, double occupancy,
and includes three nights of
accommodations, eight full
meals, daily attractions,
luggage handling, taxes,
gratuities and motorcoach
transportation. Locally owned
KeRu Motorcoach Company
will be coordinating the
travel logistics.
Reservations, with a $100
deposit, must be made by
Aug. 24. The deposit is fully
refunded for any cancellations
prior to Aug. 24.

Staff training needs to be

"It's a safety issue. That's
why we have so many feet
per bed," he said. There also
need to be a certain number
of bathroom fixtures per
guest, so 40 guests are not
sharing one home-type
bathroom, he explained.
Hostels may not be for
everyone. Jessica Lopez, 21,

Mongol (R) B
Award-winning Russian filmmaker Sergei
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.

belly-churning physical activi-
ty until one or more of them,
you know, hurls. The last one
standing, however woozily,
who hasn't given up his lunch
gets $1,000 and the Iron
Stomach Award.
"Hurl!" is helped by its

alarm goes off when a sweaty
contestant looks like he's on
the edge, and there's the
"vomit cam." Still, it's guys
retching on TV. For our amuse-
ment. Somewhere, the four
horsemen of the apocalypse

cable channel. This month, it's
launching a whole new slate of
series, including old episodes
of "Banzai," the British-pro-
duced "Japanese" game show
that sparked protests when it
aired briefly on Fox in 2003
from Asian-American groups,
who said it was akin to an
Asian minstrel show.
In the series, viewers bet on
odd competitions, such as how
long Mr. Shaky Hands Man
(Tadao Tomamatsu) can shake
hands with celebrities. It's an
especially flimsy premise made
even more infuriating by the
absurdly stereotypical
Japanese mannerisms and
voiceovers.

Poison brings 'Live Raw & Uncut Summer Tour' to Tampa


By MARIE MERCHANT
ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR
You can expect "Nothing
but a Good Time" Tuesday
when Poison brings their Live
Raw & Uncut Summer Tour
2008 with special guests
Dokken and Sebastian Bach to
the Ford Amphitheatre in
Tampa.
The four original band
members, Bret Michaels, Rikki
Rockett, C.C. DeVille and
Bobby Dall, are back together,
on tour and have released,
"Poison: Live, Raw & Uncut," a
DVD/CD collection, which was
recorded last August in St.
Louis, Mo.
"We sat down with the pro-
ducers and we said 'listen we
can do a multiple camera
shoot or we can do multiple
days,"' explained drummer
Rockett in a recent telephone
interview from Salt Lake City,
Utah, where Poison was
preparing for the summer
tour. "We thought coming to a
Poison show is unpredictable
so we decided to do it where
we didn't have a safety net. If
we blew a song we blew it, you
get to see it. That's how live
performances are. But when
you connect a visual to it with
multiple cameras I can't get
away with anything. I think we
had like nine cameras. Most

bands will not do that. It isn't a situation we play almost
perfect performance, but I was every summer. It's become a
pleased with it. The energy was bit of a phenomenon. Every


there. The audience was awe-
some."
Fans will be getting their
money's worth at this sum-
mer's show. "We have a unique


year we try to outdo ourselves
a little bit more and give peo-
ple more bang for their buck.
"People want the hits, and
they want something new to


see, new to experience. It's dif-
ficult to put that all together.
What we came up with this
year is really going to blow
people away. We now have
three screens, led lights that
are way brighter and do a lot
more. The drum kit is over the


Dokken hits the road with Poison


By MARIE MERCHANT
ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR
Dokken is back and has hit
the road with Poison on their
Live Raw & Uncut Summer
Tour 2008.
The tour makes a stop at
The Ford Amphitheatre in
Tampa on Tuesday.
Singer Don Dokken, drummer
Mick Brown, guitarist John Levin
and bassist Barry Sparks return
to their classic '80s hard rock
sound with their first CD in four
years, Lightning Strikes Again.


"I guess we wrote something
the fans wanted," said singer
Don Dokken in a recent tele-
phone interview. "They're gravi-
tating to it. It took a long time to
write it. I didn't want to copy
songs from the '80s. I wanted to
keep it fresh lyrically and keep
the classic sounds."
The CD was released in May
and entered the Billboard Hard
Rock charts at No.18.
"I tried to do what they (the
fans) wanted, but make our-
selves happy at the same time. I


think it's my favorite record
we've done in a long time the
feel, the lyrics, the melodies,"
Dokken added.
Keeping with Dokken tradi-
tion, Lightning Strikes Again
takes its name from a song on a
previous CD, the 1985 release
Under Lock and Key.
"It's some kind of quirky thing
of mine," Dokken said.
Dokken will be performing
"Standing On The Outside" and
"This Fire" from the new CD, as
well as fan favorites "Into The


Fire," "Breaking the Chains"
"Just Got Lucky" and the classic
hard rock ballad "Alone Again."
"Nostalgia is connected with
this music and that is why is
Poison so popular," Dokken
explained "They're a feel-good
band. People pay to go to a
concert to erase everyday
ups and downs and Poison
delivers on that."
Sparks and Brown will not be
on this summer's tour due to
prior obligations. Bassist Chris
McCarvill from House of Lords


and drummer Jeff Martin of
Racer X and Badlands will be
filling in.
According to Dokken, the
band plans a headlining tour
this fall. "Mick and Barry will be
back in September and we'll
pick up where we left off."
The band takes the stage at
8:10 p.m. Tuesday, followed
by Poison at The Ford
Amphitheatre, 4802 U.S. 301
North, Tampa.
For tickets, call 813-740-2446

top this year. It's completely
different than what everybody
expects of me."
The band will be perform-
ing its hits "Nothind but a Good
Time," "Something To Believe
In," "Fallen Angel" and their
number one song "Every Rose
Has Its Thorn" among others.
"I want to reach into the

stuff," Rockett said.
