Teacher charged with child abuse


Now the parent of a child alleged to have been
abused wants the accused teacher off the school
district's payroll.


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

A parent of one of four special
needs children allegedly abused
by a Venice Elementary School
teacher is tired of waiting for the
school district to fire her.
Diane Zales O'Neill, 45, of
Sarasota, who was accused five
months ago of abusing handi-
capped pupils at Venice Ele-
mentary School, was formally
charged Thursday with four
counts of felony child abuse for
incidents that allegedly took
place from Dec. 5, 2007, to Jan.
14,2008.
Assistant State Attorney
Dawn M. Buff's memo in the
case states that the majority of
the actions O'Neill is accused of
are more in line with statutes
prohibiting child abuse an
intentional act that could rea-
sonably be expected to result in
physical or mental injury -
than aggravated child abuse, the
original charge. The state must


show torture or malicious pun-
ishment beyond a reasonable
doubt to prove the higher
charge.
O'Neill's arraignment is set
for Aug. 8 at the Sarasota County
Courthouse.
On the payroll
O'Neill was placed on paid
administrative leave Jan. 28 by
school principal Theresa Baus,
and Baus initiated a school
investigation. She remains on
paid leave.
The parent, who wants to
remain anonymous to protect
her child, said the school district
should terminate the teacher
rather than continue her on the
payroll.
"The fact that it took from
February until now ... I thought
it was ridiculous to wait. She
should have been suspended
with pay only until enough
information was gathered," the
parent said.
The parent questioned why


O'Neill is still being paid and
said she is concerned that if the
case is not resolved by the begin-
ning of the next school year "if
she is not terminated by then" -
O'Neill will still be under con-
tract and will continue to get
benefits as if she is an employed
teacher and could still accrue
retirement.
According to the parent, the
school investigation was con-
ducted by an outside party and
concluded a couple of weeks
ago. She said she called Michael
Jones, executive director of the
school district's human re-
sources department, and his
secretary told her they have the
report in hand but would not do
anything until the state attor-
ney's office took action.
The parent said she questions
why statutes are in place
through the school board re-
garding disciplinary action that
are not being used if they wait
for the state attorney's office.
"The most important thing is
that people understand that the
school board has rules they are
not enforcing. I worry what that
says to other teachers, that she is

Work continues on the Nokomis Beach Plaza in readiness for its reopening
next month.


Beach plaza to


reopen in August


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Almost 60 years after the orig-
inal Nokomis Beach Pavilion
was built, the totally rebuilt
replica is to be completed on
time and will open in one
month.
Sarasota County Parks & Rec-
reation Department Supervisor
Rob LaDue complimented the
contractor, Howell Construc-
tion, for doing a great job. He
announced the official ribbon-
cutting for the renamed facility
- Nokomis Beach Plaza will
be at 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 19.
Visitors will see numerous
changes to the combined north
and south plaza. The new facili-
ties include linear-access rest-
rooms, a kitchen and communi-
ty room. The surrounding plaza
has been restored to the original
design supervised by architect
Jack West, who designed it in the
early 1950s.
Access to both parking areas
has been re-engineered for bet-
ter parking, particularly in the
southern lot, where the entrance
is being moved farther south to
slow traffic. Posts, ropes, ribbon
curbs and cement car bumpers
are being constructed.
The north lot has been recon-
figured, reducing the impact on
the dunes, reducing mainte-
nance and making it user friend-


ly and ADA accessible. Part of
the boardwalk has been remov-
ed and replaced by posts and
rope with access off the new
covered seating area.
Proposals are in hand to bring
back the concession stand in the
south pavilion following renova-
tions in the next 12 months.
Built in the early 1950s, the
building will be retrofitted, in-
cluding repairs and replacement
of the restroom facilities.
"Saltwater and corrosion bat-
ter the buildings, and we have
the funding to repair every-
thing," said LaDue.
Electrical service will be re-
placed and upgraded, providing
for a large fryer and grill for the
concession operator. Additional
seating will be provided.
Following the recent intro-
duction of smoke-free beach
zones LaDue said, "Talking to
lifeguards and Sarasota sheriffs
confirms they have seen a dra-
matic reduction in smoking lit-
ter at Siesta Key and Nokomis
Beach."
Improved signs are planned
for the lifeguard towers.
Jack Clark, project supervisor
for Howell Construction, con-
firmed work is on schedule for
completion on Aug. 29. Public
access is expected to be avail-
able from that date.

Mayor: Council


has a game plan


County keeps dollars at River


Road-U.S. 41 intersection


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

Venice Mayor Ed Martin met
with members of the press
Thursday to give an update on
major projects on city council's
plate.
His message in a nutshell:
Progress is being made.
"We've got a process that's
moving," he said. "It may not be
visible to the public."
He was referring specifically
to work on airport plans, but
that theme was common to all
of the topics on his agenda.
The first item was the com-
prehensive plan, which council
is in the process of revising. It's
time, he said, to move from
analysis to drafting and adop-
tion.


"We have .f.
thought about
and discussed
every neigh- .l 5
borhood," he .. / ."
said. "We have
completed
phase 1 of that
process."
The next Martin
phase will be
the preparation of revisions to
the plan, which will then go to
city advisory boards for com-
ment, then back to council for
public hearings and, finally, a
vote.
"My hope is that it will be on
its way to Tallahassee (for state
review) ... let's say, within four
months," he said.

The money stays at the River
Road-U.S. 41 intersection. For
now.
Ignoring a lawsuit threat by
the North Port City Commission
to use $7.8 million collected in
county impact fees for Sumter
Boulevard, the Sarasota County
Commission unanimously vot-
ed Tuesday to apply those funds
to previously agreed-to im-
provements to the River Road-
U.S. 41 intersection.
"I believe staff is correct in
their interpretation that we do
have the right to do this," said
Commissioner Nora Patterson,
referring to the contention by
North Port officials that they had
the right under an interlocal
agreement with the county to

first refusal on those funds.
However, Patterson added, "it
would be so much nicer" if the
county couched its decision in
terms that would not offend the
sensibilities of the North Port
City Commission.
Commission Chair Shannon
Staub suggested the decision
could be contingent upon North
Port signing off on it as well, al-
though that action was not
mandated by the interlocal


agreement.
"This is legal
stuff and it's
u t common
sense," Staub
said. "We could
M write a letter
(to them ex-
plaining) this
Barbetta is our next
step."
"So, what if they say no?"
countered Commissioner Joe
Barbetta. "Does that mean we're
not going to do it?"
"Let's let them know we
approved the agenda item with
a letter going to North Port let-
ting them know we did this, ask-
ing them for comments," Pat-
terson said.

form with little warning,
and lightning can strike
10 miles from rainfall.
McCrane said residents
are in danger of being
struck by lightning if they
hear thunder.
People are urged to use
the "30/30 Rule" when
they're outdoors. They
should find shelter when
the time between a light-
ning flash and thunder is
30 seconds or less. They
also should remain in a
safe location for 30 min-


utes following the final
thunderclap.
Lightning strike victims
often assume the threat
has passed after thunder-
storm, although lightning
can travel far from the core
of a storm's rain.
Nearly half of all light-
ening deaths happen in
open areas. For safety, look
for a substantial building,
such as a home, away from
windows, or a vehicle with
a metal roof. Avoid trees,
covered picnic shelters,


tents and convertibles.
If someone is struck by
lightning, call 9-1-1 and
get immediate medical
help. Lightning strikes can
cause cardiac arrest, bums
and nerve damage.
Bystanders are in no
danger when providing
medical aid and CPR as
victims don't carry an
electrical charge. Many
deaths can be prevented if
a victim receives proper,
immediate first aid.
Floridians should watch


weather conditions and
have a plan in case of
severe weather, McCrane
said. A portable NOAA all-
hazards radio can provide
alerts in case a severe
thunderstorm watch or
warning is issued.

Lifestyles Committee dedicated to all


BY JESSICA MILLER
INTERN


The Venice Lifestyles Com-
mittee met Wednesday after-
noon with ears open to all voic-
es, young and old.
The purpose of the commit-
tee is to advise city council on
issues in the city concerning
youth, senior citizens and dis-
abled persons.
The two guest speakers at
Wednesday's meeting hit all
three bases.
Senior comfort
Sarasota County Senior Advi-
sory Council Member Van Deist
addressed the county's position
on residential accessibility for
seniors and disabled persons.
Deist explained there are two
certifications being looked into:
visitability and universal design.
"Our council is trying to


encourage commissioners on
basic design requirements for
the comfort of individuals,"
Deist said.
Components of universal
design include an accessible
bedroom and bathroom on the
first floor of all residences.
"If grandma left her retire-
ment home to come visit, we
want her to be comfortable and
able to function easily," Deist
said.
Other proposed elements
include wide-passage doors
either 34 or 36 inches wide and
low-rise windows that are
wheelchair-friendly.
Bathrooms, kitchens and hall-
ways are encouraged to be 5 feet
in diameter to ensure movability.
"These are important criteria,
and we are trying to keep it sim-
ple," Deist said. "Keep in mind it
is important for accessibility to
be comfortable for the people in


the community and the people
you care about."
City Council Member Sue
Lang said council voted in the
comprehensive plan to make
this topic a priority.
Lifestyles Committee mem-
ber Kathy Kurz said the federal
government is looking for public
input on the new accessibility
design for the Americans with
Disabilities Act.
"This is a chance for city and
county to come together and
have public input," Kurz said.
For more information, visit
ada.gov. The deadline for public
input is Aug. 18.
Eliminating youth vacancy
Next on the committee's
agenda: youth development.
Community Youth Develop-
ment Program Assistant L'tea
Humphrey Woodward addressed
the committee about the board


position for a student volunteer.
Woodward presented the
Students Taking Active Roles
program.
According to the CYDWeb site,
STAR "prepares students to serve
as decision-makers in Sarasota
County through training in civics,
communication, leadership,
meeting roles and responsibili-
ties, problem solving, and com-
munity assessment skills."
After this program, students
are expected to be prepared to
serve as a board member for dif-
ferent councils.
The STAR program has already
put a member on the city of
Venice Parks and Recreation
Advisory Board.
Committee Chair Dick Dod-
deridge said there's an opening
for a high school student on his
board.
"This could be step one,"
Dodderidge said.


Kruz then addressed the need
for the committee to explore all
options.
"The position needs to be
open to any student," Kruz said.
Committee Member David
Ursel thought of STAR as another
avenue to getting youth involved.
Dodderidge then suggested
looking into Venice High's volun-
teer program as well.
The youth position requires
the approval of the mayor and
city council.
Lang suggested the commit-
tee narrow down its choice to
one organization and then sug-
gest it to council.
The nomination process for
the youth vacancy will then flow,
Lang said.
Applications for the youth
position on the Lifestyles Com-
mittee can be picked up at city
hall, 401 W Venice Ave.

County OKs loans for library, beach upgrades


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
commissioners unani-
mously approved $10.5
million in short-term
loans Wednesday to expe-


dite the funding of pro-
jects earmarked by the
recently passed 1-cent
sales surtax.
Among South County
projects awaiting the
funding were:
The North Port Health


and Family Service Center
Facility ($1.025 million)
The Elsie Quirk Library
Remodel Project ($500,000)
The Manasota Beach
Restroom Project ($81,000)
The Caspersen Beach
Restroom Project ($50,000)


The Bridge Replace-
ment and Rehabilitation
Program ($1 million)
County Administrator
Jim Ley advocated the
speedy passage of the
approval for the borrow-
ing, maintaining it would
mirror the positive effects
of a similar action initiated
in May, which occurred
days after voters approved
bonding up to $300 mil-
lion for projects ear-
marked for future sales tax
dollars.
"(That) provided monies
for things like purchase-
approved right of way,
sidewalks, and the initia-
tion of some resurfacing
activity," Ley said. "This
commercial paper bor-


rowing allows us to move
(some) projects quickly
(and) expedites the pro-
jects in the stimulus
plan."
Commission Chair
Shannon Staub supported
the action, aimed at kick-
starting the local econo-
my
"What we do is we go
out to move (these pro-
jects) ahead quickly,"
Staub said. "We borrow
short-term commercial
paper and then once we
get about $180 million
worth of them, we will
then do a bond. Bonds are
expensive."
Staub said actual work
on the projects will begin
very soon. Some, such as


road resurfacing projects
in North County would
start "tomorrow," she said,
while others have already
begun.
"Elsie Quirk is in the
design (phase)," she said.
"So they're working on it
now. On projects like the
Manasota Beach rest-
room restoration, for
example, we finally got
them repaired enough to
open them back up. Now
we start on replacing
them. As for bridge rehab,
the Overbrook Gardens
Bridge was just done in
conjunction with Dear-
born Street improve-
ments."

ABUSE from Page 1A

at home and getting a paycheck
even after three investigations say
the abuse occurred and they (school
district) is not willing to let her go
until 'we see what the state attor-
ney's office does,' the parent said
Jones' office said.
"Why bother with their own in-
vestigation ... with spending that
money?" the parent asked.

School district
Jones declined to comment, but
Scott Ferguson, of the school dis-
trict's communications office, said,
"People are innocent until proven
guilty, and she (O'Neill) will be on


administrative leave pending the
result of the case with the state attor-
ney's office."
Ferguson said O'Neill will not be
teaching in the classroom next
school year because of the legal is-
sues.
"We presume innocence," Fer-
guson said. "It is part of the
American justice system, and some-
times the wheels go slowly."
According to Ferguson, whatever
monies O'Neill earns she gets to
keep.
"People do not give back any pay
they receive while undergoing the
process of waiting for a trial and
being innocent until proven guilty.
That is just the way the system


works," he said.

Kids improved
The parent said she met with the
parents of the other three allegedly
abused special needs children
recently, and they all said their chil-
dren are sleeping better and they
have seen some improvements
since O'Neill was removed from the
classroom.
'At the same time, we are still see-
ing some ramifications, like flinch-
ing" she said. "It is difficult to tell
because they can't speak. And that is
part of the reason it is so difficult to
prove."'

PLAN from Page 6B


Given that timeline, City
Engineer Nancy Woodley,
who will become interim
city manager next month,
said making the extended
deadline of Oct. 1 was un-
likely.

Help wanted
Topic two was the bud-
get, where Martin sees
some hard work ahead.
"We could get through
this year, probably, with-
out bleeding too badly," he
said, with staff having pre-
sented a budget balanced
at the current 2.779 mill-
age rate. (A mill is $1 per
$1,000 of a home's as-
sessed value.) But, he said,
the Legislature isn't done
with tax reform and next
year might consider cap-
ping local tax rates at their
existing levels, perhaps
allowing only a minimal
increase, perhaps by refer-
endum.
Council voted Tuesday
to set the rate at 3.3588
mills for discussion pur-
poses. It can be lowered
but not raised during the
budgeting process.
The higher rate would
give the city about
$100,000 more tax revenue
than last year; the current
rate would bring in about
$2 million less.
"That's something the
public is going to have to
help council decide," he
said.

Complicated
So far only one Airport
Advisory Board member
has complied with coun-
cil's demand for their res-
ignations. Martin said Wal-
ter Hake, a relatively recent
appointee, has tendered
his resignation, though Jim




County gets

funds for

local park


STAFF REPORT

The city of Venice's
planned Ruscelletto Park,
west of the bypass and just
north of East Venice Ave-
nue, will be one of the ben-
eficiaries of $271,000 from
the state's Florida Recre-
ation Development Assis-
tance Program.
The funds will be used
for a new picnic shelter,
bike/nature trail, observa-
tion deck and parking.
Funds are also included
for Lido Beach, where the
money will be used for a
new multi-use trail and
beach access, and to reno-
vate the bike trail.
The Florida Recreation
Development Assistance
Program is a competitive
grant program, providing
funds to local communi-
ties for public outdoor
recreation.
Over the last decade,
Florida has invested more
than $250 million to im-
prove local park facilities
through this grant pro-
gram, funding more than
2,000 projects statewide
including pavilions, ball
fields and courts, parking
areas, trails, beach docks,
piers and boardwalks.

jects and information
about applying for a FRDAP
grant, visit http://www.dep.
state.fl.us/parks/OIRS/defa
ult.htm.


Leis has indicated he will
resign as well.
He said he will be talk-
ing to City Attorney Bob
Anderson about how to
handle any members who
don't honor council's de-
mand, which came Tues-
day after two motions
regarding the abolition of
the board failed.
Responses to the city's
request for qualifications
from prospective new air-
port consultants are due
Aug. 15, Woodley said. By
then, Martin hopes, coun-
cil members will have
reviewed the airport lay-
out plan and master plan
update prepared by MEA
Group and identified their
problems with the docu-
ments so they can give the
new consultant direction.
"We have to give the
consultant a clear task," he
said. "We have to say,
'Here's what we want in
this plan.'"
The new consultant
could be MEA (now Han-
son), but only if it re-
sponds to the RFQ. Lisa
Waters, a principal in the
company, said Tuesday
that decision hadn't been


made. not previously made clear.

COUNCIL CANDIDATE PACKETS AVAILABLE
Election of two Venice city council members takes
place Nov. 4. The terms of council members John
Simmonds and Vicki Noren expire this year.
Residents who have been registered voters in the
city for 12 consecutive months prior to Sept. 2, 2008,
may run for office.
Election packets are available in the city clerk's of-
fice at Venice City Hall, 401 W. Venice Ave. Call City
Clerk Lori Stelzer, 486-2626, ext. 23001, to schedule
an appointment to go over the requirements and
forms to become a candidate. The review takes ap-
proximately one hour.
Qualification of candidates takes place from Sept. 2
until Sept. 5 at noon.


She said the company
was still interested in
working with the city but
had not heard from any-
one in several months. On
Thursday, Martin and
Woodley said the compa-
ny should have ap-
proached the city to try to
resolve the objections to
its work.
Council's intent, though,
is to use as much of the
proposed plans as possi-
ble, which Martin ac-
knowledged council had


Doing that, he said, could
lower the price tag for revi-
sions significantly, though
the dollar figure won't be
known until the scope of
the new consultant's ser-
vices has been defined.
"The goal is to get this
done, and get this done as
promptly as possible," he
said. "It's been a more
complicated problem than
any of us believed."

ROAD from Page 6B

Chair Fred Tower III had
some comments of his
own, upon hearing of the
county commission's ac-
tion.
"The county seems to
be going about this their
own way, just passing this
and leaving us out of the
information," Tower said.
"There seems to be a prob-
lem with the interpreta-
tion of our interlocal
agreement. We have the
right to go ahead and sug-
gest an area (the funds)
would be used, which we
did do. It's our under-
standing that we have to
pass a resolution directing
these funds (to the U.S. 41-
River Road intersection),
which we have not done."
Tower did not know
when Rob Robinson,


SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A


North Port's city attorney,
would get back to him and
his colleagues with a legal
interpretation of the inter-
local agreement.
"Until we get an opin-
ion back from (him), I can't
say any more," Tower said.

OUR VIEW


What the airport's detractors just don't get


In his book "True Enough," Farhad
Manjoo argues that what we believe
colors our perception of reality and
that, in the Internet age, we can readily
find people who share those beliefs and
that perception, even if it is demonstra-
bly wrong.
In common parlance that point of
view is sometimes known as "Don't con-
fuse me with the facts."
That seems to us to be the attitude of
some people on both sides of theVenice
Municipal Airport debate. We discussed
in Wednesday's editorial some points
we think the airport's boosters have
failed to come to terms with. Here are
some realities its critics should ac-
knowledge.
First, if you moved here since the
mid-'40s, the airport was there when
you got here. That sounds snide, but it's
still true, and it costs you some sympa-
thy, especially among the pilots and
businesses at the airport.
Similarly, complaints about the size
and type of planes, or the number of
take-offs and landings, hit a lot of deaf
ears. By law, the airport has to be avail-
able for any plane that wants to and can
use it, and you know there has never


been a guarantee about the amount or
type of traffic it would handle. There are
more people here every year, and more
traffic on our roads; why would you
think the airport would buck that trend?
Now, that's not to say the airport and
the pilots don't have to be good neigh-
bors. We need strong noise-abatement
rules and pollution buffers in gener-
al, more respect for the people who do
live close to the airport.
Second, the city can't do most of the
things people have suggested regarding
the airport.
Shut down the airport and the land
reverts to the federal government be-
cause it is no longer being used for avi-
ation purposes. Unless, of course, the
city creates another airport to replace it
- something there is neither the land
nor the money for. And if there were,
there's no guarantee there would be no
development on this prime real estate.
Which do you prefer: condos or planes?
Attempting to place restrictions on
the planes that use the airport would
risk the wrath of the Federal Aviation
Administration. Without a control
tower, enforcement that would be tricky
anyway. There appears to be a legal


problem and a practical one with
charging landing fees, a suggested
source of revenue.
Third, the airport needs to make
money because it is supposed to be self-
sustaining. If landing fees are out and
existing leases are locked in, that means
finding new sources of revenue new
leases or other paying uses of airport
property. Or we could see what the FAA
thinks of the airport enterprise fund
being in the red.
The last time we fought it, over the
Lake Venice Golf Club lease, it withheld
the funds to redo runway 13/31. What
would happen if the economic stability
of the entire operation appeared to be
in jeopardy? Experienced pilots say you
don't want the federal government run-
ning your airport.
Fourth, the airport really does con-
tribute to our economy, even though
you may not feel the direct impact,
which is difficult to quantify. If it's not
the gateway to Venice, it certainly is a
gateway, and the businesses there
employ dozens of people. A commerce
park at the arena site would provide
many more jobs and rid the city of an
eyesore.


Our final point is that the condition
of runway 4/22 really is a safety issue,
and more. Opinions vary about how
bad it is, but if planes are avoiding it that
means more noise for the neighbors. If
they're not, then pilots are risking dam-
age to their planes on take-off, already a
dangerous part of any flight.
Also, consider the impact on the
airport's capacity in the admittedly
unlikely event it is needed for hurri-
cane relief.
Complain if you want about spend-
ing money to benefit a privileged few.
It's a public transportation obligation
the city assumed when it accepted the
land from the federal government after
World War II.
We hope these two editorials have
put the key issues into clearer relief.
They are the same ones we identified
months ago, before emotion got the
worst of so many people: What can be
done to avoid taking any part of the golf
course and to protect the rights of the
owners of the homes that appear to be
in a runway protection zone?
Those aren't the only issues, just the
ones that have gotten spun the most for
political gain. That needs to stop.


Ouch, that hurt


MARY KAY RUPPEL

That was quite a sucker
punch we seniors just got
from our esteemed Senate.
When it got the Medi-
care bill passed recently,
this is what President Bush
said: "I support the prima-
ry objective of this legisla-
tion, to forestall reductions
in physician's payments,
yet taking choices away
from seniors to pay physi-
cians is wrong."
Let me go to back to last
January. I was invited to at-
tend a reception in honor
of Rep. Vern Buchanan
given by Republican Mi-
nority Leader John Boehn-
er, senator from Ohio.
Boehner gave a brief talk
during which he was asked
(not by me) about the
Medicare Advantage Plans.
He responded that it was
President Bush and the
Republican Congress that
had put this plan together
to help Medicare recipi-
ents. Being a personal pro-
ponent and having an
Advantage plan, I was
interested in hearing this
from him.
Afterward, I asked Bu-
chanan what he thought of
the Medicare Advantage
Plans. He responded that
he wasn't familiar with
them. So, last March when
I saw Buchanan at a Re-
publican Club meeting, a
friend and I volunteered to
work on his staff to edu-
cate them on senior citizen
medical care. He agreed
and said we would get a
call from his assistant. We
did and we aren't on his
staff. Apparently, Buchan-
an or his assistant felt that
his more youthful staff was
better equipped to handle
senior citizen issues.
Hmmm.
At this point I'd like to
simply ask Buchanan if he
is in favor of socialized
medicine, because that's
what the Democrats are
heading for. If not, I'd like
to have him explain why a
plan that was formatted by
his party to help seniors is
not his cup of tea -
explain to us what exactly
he has in mind. Of course,
he will have to consult


with one of his youthful
staff.
Twenty-one Senate Re-
publicans voted for the bill
this time, including four
senators who had voted
"nay" in the two previous
Medicare votes. One of
whom was Mel Martinez,
whom Buchanan had en-
couraged to change his
vote. Hmmm.
Frankly, I started losing
confidence in Buchanan
when I read that he had
voted yes on a bill to finan-
cially assist home owners
in replacing their septic
tanks with sewers. We are
talking about people who
paid less for their homes
because they were not on a
sewer. I consider relieving
informed adults of their
personal responsibility by
placing a financial burden
on innocent people social-
ism at its very worst.
My financial status has
improved incredibly since
joining a Medicare Advan-
tage Plan. This is my sec-
ond year, but I fear it may
be my last as the liberals
keep gnawing and gnaw-
ing away at them.
Fellow seniors, do you
want socialized medicine?
Do you want to be disen-
franchised so that a 46-
year-old woman in Kansas
can get her prescriptions
cheaper for her bipolar
condition? A 46-year-old
woman in Kansas can still
work; we really can't unless
we bag groceries or do
something else for a pit-
tance to help us pay pre-
miums and get prescrip-
tions.
With my present Ad-
vantage plan, I have saved
more than $200 per month
from what I was paying
with conventional Medi-
care.
When Barry Goldwater
was running for president,
I was pretty young, but for
some reason his honesty
just resonated with me. I
even drove a car in a
parade dragging a Gold-
water billboard in which
Bing Crosby's son, Gary,
rode with me.
After the election
Goldwater said, "You can-
not in this game of politics
fight your own party. It just
doesn't work."
I still admire Buchanan
even if I don't always agree
with him. You can't please
all the people all of the
time but you must be
true to your principles.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Lord House an expensive lesson


Editor:
It is time to cut bait on the Lord house. We now have a
structure in bad shape, unattended for the last three
years with the exception of a little bit of paint. The house
has little prospect for private funding, and, hopefully, no
prospect in the near future for municipal funding.
In the context of Venice history, its usefulness is dubi-
ous. In the context of our national history, that value is
laughable.
It is certainly ironic that the city is considering passing
the International Property Maintenance Code with such
a structure on the books. The house fails the "is it habit-
able?" test from a number of different perspectives.
It's too bad so much money was spent to move this
dilapidated structure and shameful that trees were cut
down to allow placement on its current site.
Perhaps this can be a lesson for next time a special
interest group advocates a pet project at city expense.

We need to get
serious on oil
Editor:
Gasoline prices are ris-
ing out of control, pushed
by politicians limiting
domestic supply and spec-
ulators from OPEC having
a field day.
How serious is this situ-
ation?
About a third of our
crude oil consumption
goes into fuel. All the rest
goes into plastics, paints,
household products, fab-
rics, etc. The cost of all
these items is going to sky-
rocket with the price of
crude, if politicians con-
tinue to sit on their hands.
Liberals in Congress do
nothing other than hold


public hearings to embar-
rass productive oil compa-
nies. Yet these same politi-
cians have been the real
cause of the problem.
We have substantial
petroleum deposits in the
Gulf of Mexico, in the en-
tire Louisiana Purchase,
and stretching from the
original discovery in Pen-
nsylvania. Liberals block
domestic exploration, con-
struction of refineries and
drilling in Alaska. Such pol-
itics put us at serious risk,
but get applause from ac-
tivist voting blocks.
To solve the problem,
we only need to start seri-
ous development of our
own resources. Back in
1975, OPEC immediately


cut its world pric
in half as soon a
get serious devel
own production
in Alaska and t
by drilling in t
Sea.
We need libe
cians to stop pai
OPEC or voting b

LET 'EM HAVE IT: WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE
PLAN TO WIDEN THE BYPASS TO SIX LANES FROM
ALBEE FARM ROAD TO GULF COAST BOULEVARD?
CALL US AT 207-1111.

You're not being paid to smoke

Wasted. This comment is about hiring only non-
smokers. I agree with it. All of us have seen employees
smoking outside their places of employment on their
break as no problem, but maybe it is. I work at a major
grocery chain and many of my co-workers in manage-
ment take smoke breaks of 45 minutes to an hour a day,
once you add them up. These are not on their lunch
breaks. That's four to five hours a week per person, and
that's my grocery dollars and your grocery dollars being
wasted. People's smoking instead of working adds up to
four to five weeks a year. That's not where I want my dol-
lars to go.


Water worries. Does
the city's Public Work De-
partment have any em-
ployees left? Months ago
they sprayed painted "Xs"
on sidewalks to replace the
broken sidewalks, and
nothing has been done to
many of those locations; in
fact, many of those red
marks are being worn
away by the weather. Sec-
ond, the disastrous flood-
ing that happened onVen-
ice Avenue between the
bridge and Bypass 41 is
horrendous. There are
drain pipes that are obvi-
ously not working. They
need to get in there and
decide why they're clog-
ged up and not working.
Afternoon rains are flood-
ing there with 6-inch
water, making it impassi-
ble for cars, and that's a hur-
ricane evacuation route. I
hope city council mem-
bers are trying to find out
what's causing the pollut-
ing Gulf waters. Forget
about the airport for now.
You need to find out what's
wrong with our beach
waters.
There's something wrong
that only the beaches in
our area are affected with
feces. Find out where
that's coming from. Are
the bay waters infected? Is
the Intracoastal Waterway
infected? Let's find out
what's causing this and get
it stopped.
Missed. I happen to
work at a supermarket and
find that the fire trucks
never come anymore. We
miss talking to them be-
cause every day that they
come we know that people


ask questions. I spoke with
one of the firefighters and
he said they were no
longer able to shop. I sure
hope they have enough
food at the station. It's too
bad we can't see our fire
department at our super-
market anymore.
Good riddance. Your
recent editorial states that
Black's decision to quit
makes sense, and you can't
blame him. In a four-col-
umn spread, you men-
tioned that he, number
one, disagreed with some-
one on the council on the
airport plan; and two,
some of the council mem-
bers innocently or deceit-
fully used e-mails improp-
erly, including two of the
old guard council mem-
bers.
You state that there will
be an almost certain exo-
dus of city staff in his wake.
If these are the only rea-
sons for his quitting,
maybe it is good riddance
time.
Message. The Florida
auto license plates that say
"Choose Life" tell the
world that we do not sup-
port the death penalty.
Run down. There has
been quite a lot of atten-
tion in the news about
parking on the lawns. I
would like to bring to your
attention to a problem at
the intersection of Lucaya
and Albee Farm Road.
There's a beautiful triangle,
and it's being used for
public parking.
It is already terribly run
down; it's like a terrible
dump. I don't understand
why this is allowed.


Prepare now, when you can do it right

Are you prepared for
the next hurricane that
threatens Sarasota Coun-
ty?
Your answers to a few
simple questions could
save your life and the lives
of your family.
If a hurricane heads
toward Sarasota County,
how would you decide
whether to stay or evacu-
ate?
If you stay, what do you
need to do?
Have you prepared
your home for hurricane
force winds?
If you leave, where
would you go?
After the storm, would
you be self-sufficient for at
least a week?
How did you do?
Now's the best time to

answer these questions -
before the next hurricane
is 24 hours from landfall
and people are lining up to
buy storm supplies.
Hurricane season is a
part of living in Florida. It
becomes harder to re-


L I II -HS from Page 6A
"What they and the
Triple D Democrats hadn't
counted on, though, was
America making the con-
nection between the dete-
riorating economy and
their anti-energy agenda.
"Energy is freedom. En-
ergy is prosperity. Every
Democrat on the fall ballot
is part of the anti-energy
party which is wreaking
havoc on the economy
and every family's budget.
'A vote for any Demo-
crat is a vote for shortages,
rising gas prices, rising


member that after a cou-
ple of seasons with little
hurricane activity.
But we can't count on a
hurricane-free year. We
can only count on being
prepared to stay safe. That
means doing three things:
Having a plan for your
family and your pets.
Putting together a dis-
aster supply kit to get you
through the first week.
Staying alert and be
ready to carry out your
plan.
Your first step for storm
preparation and storm
information should be a
visit to Sarasota County's
Web site, scgov.net. Click
on the "All Hazards Be
Prepared" button at the
bottom of the home page.
On the "All Hazards"
page, you'll find links to
information about prepa-
rations for your family,
your home, your neigh-
borhood and business.
There also is special infor-
mation and storm tips for
senior citizens.
People who have spe-
cial needs during a storm
should contact Emerg-
ency Management to reg-
ister in advance for assis-
tance. If you don't have a
computer with Internet
access, pick up a hurri-
cane guide at a library or at
the county administration
center on Ringling Boul-
evard.
The first question -
whether to stay or go dur-
ing a storm partially de-


unemployment and fall-
ing production.
A vote for any
Democrat is a vote for fail-
ing airlines and collapsing
financial institutions and
for the shuttering of car
plants and large manufac-
turing.
'"A growing, vibrant
economy needs energy.
The Democrats are anti-
energy. It is that simple."
Now I understand.

pends on which evacua-
tion zone you live in. Maps
are available online at
scgov.net or in the hurri-
cane guides. As a storm
approaches, the Sarasota
County Emergency Oper-
ations center will issue
evacuation orders by zone,
depending on the intensi-
ty of the storm. But your
evacuation zone isn't the
only factor to consider.
Even if you don't live in
a mandatory evacuation
zone, your house may not
be safe if it wasn't con-
structed to meet recent
Florida building codes. If
you haven't done a wind
inspection on your house,
of if you don't have storm
shutters, it may not be safe
to stay.
This is especially true in
some areas of the county
that have high concentra-
tions of mobile homes or
older homes constructed
before we learned how
easily wind can damage
them.
If you plan to stay
home, remember your
ABC'S of preparation:
Anchor your roof, es-
pecially if it was built
before 1994 and is gabled.
Brace the entry and
garage doors, where 80
percent of wind damage
starts.
Cover windows with
secure impact-resistant
shutters or other window
protection systems.
Safe, interior rooms
provide more protection

Editor:
My enormous thanks
go to our city council, and
especially to Ernie Zavod-
nyik, for their work on
behalf of Venice citizens.
Council Member Zavod-
nyik, who based his cam-
paign on the phrase, "Save
Our Venice Now," has fol-
lowed through on his
promise.
His recent request to
John Patek, code enforce-
ment inspector, to visit
blighted properties is a


than rooms with windows
and doors.
Preparing your neigh-
borhood for a storm is as
important as preparing
your home. Sarasota Coun-
ty is helping residents de-
velop Neighborhood Pre-
paredness Programs with
the goal of making families
self-sufficient for up to
seven days following a
storm. Neighborhood or-
ganizations can provide
assistance when police,
fire, emergency service
and other workers may be
overwhelmed with de-
mands.
A NPP includes 25 to 50
households and is lead by
a Neighborhood Disaster
Team. For assistance in
starting a NPP in your
neighborhood or home-
owners association, call
the county Call Center at
861-5000 and ask about
the Neighborhood Prepar-
edness Program.
Sarasota County Emerg-
ency Management will
keep residents informed
as storms approach and
residents can count on us
for help after a storm pass-
es. But residents need to
be prepared and self-suffi-
cient until we can re-
spond.
Being prepared is the
best way to make sure
your family is ready for

Business partners are going Softee


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Partners Rob Spikol and
Dennis Krumanocker are
the new, self-proclaimed
Mister Softees of Venice.
They have secured the
franchise to bring these
specialty ice cream trucks
to Southwest Florida. Bas-
ed in and working from
Venice, they will initially
operate five trucks, and
within five years plan to
have 50 Mister Softees op-
erating from Tampa to
Naples.
School friends, they
grew up in Cherry Hill, N.J.
Spikol became a commer-
cial Realtor, moving to
Venice 12 months ago to
join Richard Bradway &
Associates. Krumanocker
came to Sarasota a few
years ago, opened Fab-
ulous Flowers in Engle-
wood and recently sold it.
"It's a step back in a for-
ward kind of way," said
Spikol, referring to the jin-
gle chime as a call of the
wild to kids of every age,
particularly people from
up North.
The $130,000 custom-
designed Mister Softee
trucks are ice cream shops
on wheels, equipped with
video cameras and sen-
sors enabling drivers to
monitor all around the
vehicle. Similar to a school
bus, the trucks are equip-
ped with flashing lights on
front rear and sides, plus a
yield sign, "Slow Children."

eventually expanding to
Hillsborough, Pinellas, Man-

Mister Softee has been
building ice cream trucks
for 56 years. Totally self-
contained, the vehicle has
its own generators power-
ing all the ice cream
machines and air condi-
tioning. Carrying 100 gal-
lons of ice cream mix, the


truck can serve 100,000
customers over a three-
day weekend.
"We also supply milk
shakes, soda floats, sundaes,
flushies, dips, sprinkles it
is an ice cream store on
wheels," said Spikol.
Mister Softee does not
have a retail store pro-
gram, but the partners are
developing the first store
in Venice at 509 North
Tamiami Trail, in Fisher-
man's Marina near Marker
4. Concentrating on ice
cream-related products -
and, specific to Florida,
orange-flavored ice cream
- they will be opening
more neighborhood stores.
Spikol will operate the
new venture in conjunc-
tion with his commercial
realty practice. Kruma-
nocker is organizing and
operating the Mister Sof-
tee fleet.

2115 South Tamiami Trail,
in the Galleria Plaza.
"It is the only 24/7
restaurant where you can
enjoy any item from the
full menu whenever you
are hungry," said owner
Lauri Mahaney.
From New York origi-

Small and not equipped
as a full restaurant, it
closed, but she wanted to
do it again and has custom
built Rendezvous Cafe.
Much larger, it seats 56

glider picnic tables with
misters to cool and heaters
to warm winter diners.
Employing 17 people,
the cafe has TV monitors,
Internet computers and
wireless facilities. An ex-

sic menu includes peanut
and banana-stuffed French
toast, Frito pie, shepherd's
and meat pies together
with sodas and gourmet

I thought it would be
appropriate this month to
provide the latest sales sta-
tistics and analysis from
the Florida Association of
Realtors. There is now
concrete proof that more
listings are turning into
sales good news for sell-
ers and great buys for buy-
ers.
In our own area, prop-
erties are receiving much
more exposure since we
joined the Mid Florida
Regional Multiple Listing
Service. For instance, a
buyer can now get infor-
mation on listings in our
area even if he is working
with an agent in Tampa.
Sharing data with 13
boards and associations of
Realtors is a big step in
providing our clients and
customers a higher level of
service.

Country Inn & Suites planned


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

A second new hotel is
scheduled for ground-
breaking within afewweeks
at the Jacaranda inter-
change of Interstate 75.
The 77-room Country
Inn & Suites by Carlson
Venice will be constructed
on 2.2 acres at Com-
mercial Court across from
the Holiday Inn Express.
With 40 suites, a meet-
ing room for 60 people, a
small boardroom, a busi-
ness center, breakfast and


exercise rooms plus an
outdoor pool, the target
market is business and
leisure travelers.
There are 440 Country
Inns & Suites in the Carl-
son Group. It operates 990
locations in 70 countries
worldwide, including Re-
gent Hotels & Suites, Rad-
isson Hotels, Regent Seven
Seas Cruises and the TGI
Friday restaurants.
Co-owners Majid Yasin
and wife Monica plan for
construction to com-
mence in August with a
targeted completion date


of June 2009. Yasin, a
Canadian, grew up in the
hotel business assisting
his father, who owned and
operated a hotel in
Northern Alberta. In his
mid-20s he traveled to the
Grand Caymans, where he
opened and operated a
mom-and-pop-style hotel
with 53 rooms until 2007.
Two weeks ago it was

by the Florida Association
of Realtors.
A total of 12,175 existing
single-family homes sold
in May, up 8.7 percent over
the previous month when
11,200 homes changed

High gas prices are



fueling crime wave


KEN KLEINLEIN
CRIME SCENE
COLUMNIST


Recently while driving in
and around our area I
observed many drivers oper-
ating their vehicles with the
windows down. Obviously,
when driving with the win-
dows open they probably do
not have their air condition-
ers engaged.
Folks are not using air
conditioning in order to save
gasoline. According to the
auto club, you can save
approximately 1 to 2 gallons
a tank if you drive without
using the air conditioner.
The continuing astro-
nomical spike in fuel prices
has resulted in a number of
adjustments put in place to
conserve gasoline and cut
the cost of operating a vehi-
cle.
Unfortunately the high
prices have also resulted in
an increase in crime statis-
tics.
Drive-off larcenies at gas
stations have more than
tripled.
Local authorities have
investigated a number of
thefts from fuel storage tanks
in rural areas that contain
gasoline and diesel fuel.
These larcenies have result-
ed in increased security at


i r ,


those locations and the use
of surveillance cameras.
Crooks use power tools to
drill holes in tanks to siphon
gasoline. Using this method
to steal fuel presents the dan-
ger of explosion and fire, not
only to the thief, but the vic-
tim. There is always some
spillage, and should some-
one drop a cigarette in that
area, the consequences
could be catastrophic. And
consider the trail of gas left if
the operator drives away and
does not notice the fuel
being left along the route.
Thieves are also siphon-
ing gasoline directly from
vehicles parked at malls, on
streets, in front of homes and
in driveways.
You must also be on guard
for unscrupulous gas sta-
tions that calibrate their
pumps to show more gas
was pumped than you actu-
ally received. In essence, you
pay more for less fuel.
If you are suspicious and
feel you are being victimized,
use the following method to
combat this scam.
Put exactly 10 gallons into
your tank, then look at the
dollar amount. If the dollar
amount is not exactly 10
times the price of the fuel you
have purchased, the pumps
are rigged. Report the inci-
dent to the Attorney
General's Office at (850) 414-
3300.
Hopefully, help with high
gas prices may soon be on
the way. A Senate committee
is studying the situation and
preliminary reports indicate
that much of the problem
stems from gas prices inflat-
ed by speculation, suggest-
ing that investors should
have to pay larger margins

Sean Cota, a regional
chair of the Petroleum

fied before the committee.
Based on testimony
received, Sen. Byron Dorgan,
D-N.D., stated stock specula-

margin, whereas oil com-

cent to 7 percent.
To avoid being a victim of
gasoline theft, try to park in
well-lighted areas. If you do
not have a locking gas cap on
your vehicle, purchase one,
and put your car in the
garage, especially at night.
Go to autos.msn.com/

Another way to save on gas is
to combine trips and reduce

Kayak fishing

saves gas,

beverages

There's something that
just seems more sporting
about kayak fishing. I
think it's the fact you can't
drink as many Belgian
Budweisers while partici-
pating.
On a real fishing boat
- that is, one with a
motor you can get as
sloshed as you want and
still stand a good chance
of outwitting the marine
life. On a kayak you stand
a better chance of slosh-
ing yourself overboard.
I bought a used kayak
a couple of weeks ago
and it only took me a few
(alcohol-free) tries to turn
it over and end up swim-
ming back to the beach. I
didn't bring my rod on
that trip for precisely that
reason. The only casual-
ties were one flip-flop
and aVenice High School
basketball T-shirt. You'll
be the Catch of the Week
if you reel in the flip-flop.
Being from Atlanta, I
haven't had a lot of expe-
rience with waves. We
have lakes in North
Georgia, but the toughest
swells to navigate are
those of a pontoon boat's
wake.
Another few voyages
upon my new vessel,
which I have aptly named
Day Tripper, and I was
feeling brave enough to
try bringing the fishing
tackle. I've fished. I've
kayaked. What could be
so hard about kayak
fishing?
It's mostly an issue of
balance for me. Turns
out even a pontoon's
wake in the Intracoastal
is nearly enough to roll
you when trying to keep
up with a floating-away
bait bucket and a swiftly
swinging, ocularly adja-
cent fishing hook.
I did manage to stay
upright the entire trip,
but my hands are pretty
well mangled from cat-
fish pokes and hook
snags I suffered while try-
ing to remain on board.
I'm getting a rod holder
and fixing up some
places to tie things down
next time. Live and learn,
I suppose.
In fact, I learned some-
thing valuable. As in,
money valuable.
Instead of shelling
out cash for dinner for
two at Sharky's, my girl-
friend and I feasted on
fresh redfish. Instead of
taking my standard-issue
GondoYacht out at $5 per
gallon, I used the power
of the paddle to reach my
fishing spot. In a few fish-
ing trips, my $340 kayak
will have paid for itself.
So now I've earned my
stripes, literally. The sun
only hits half of your leg
when it's sitting in a
kayak, so I've got a stripe
down the middle of my
shin. Just in time for a
beach trip to Destin for
the weekend. See you
next week.
Now, if I could just get
that other flip-flop, I'd be
able to step across these
oyster shells and get this
kayak back on the roof of
my car...

The Venice High School girls
basketball team lacks experience.
The Lady Indians lost their
entire starting lineup and most of
their bench when eight seniors
graduated in May. They have two
returning varsity players in junior
Kirsten Walchle and sophomore
Leanne Marsden, but everyone
else is completely green. So
Venice has been working hard
this summer.
"We've probably played 45-50
games this summer as a team, so
that's like three seasons," Head
Coach Bruce Reichenbach said. In
one 10-day stretch, Venice played
20 games.
"It's surprising to a lot of peo-
ple that they play that many, but
you really have to to compete
with some of the good teams,"
Reichenbach said.
The "offseason" wraps up next
week when Venice takes on one of
District 5A-12's frontrunners,
North Port High School. After that
game, which could serve as a
measuring stick for the regular
season, the Indians finally get a

With the end of summer ball

Five competitors from Sara-
sota's Red Tiger Martial Arts
returned from the U.S. Taekwondo
Championships with two gold
medals, three silver medals and
one bronze medal.
Ten-year-old Mykel Gerace of
Venice, along with 11-year-old
Karishma Day, 18-year-old Bobby
Shusko, 9-year-old Jacob Shusko
and 10-year-old Isaac Weintraub
competed in forms and sparring
July 3-6 in Detroit. More than
2,500 athletes vied for honors over
the four-day event held at Ford
Field, home of the Detroit Lions.
Only those who placed in the top
three of their event at one of five
national qualifiers throughout the
U.S. were invited to compete.
The competition was spon-
sored and held by the U.S.A.
Taekwondo Association, the
national governing body of the
sport, which is recognized by the
U.S. Olympic Committee and a
member of the World Taekwondo
Federation.
All five students are members
of the Red Tiger Martial Arts Club
located in Sarasota. They are
coached by Master Jin Hwang,
who is a fifth-degree black belt.
He has practiced taekwondo
since the age of 6 in his native
country of South Korea.
Taekwondo means the art of
kicking and punching. The prac-
tice of taekwondo dates backto 50
B.C. and is believed to be one of
the oldest oriental arts of self-
defense. What distinguishes the
sport are its varied and uniquely
powerful kicking techniques. In


down with the Gondolier Sun to
give a progress report on their
young team.
"What's good is that all of our
young kids have really made great
strides this summer," he said.
"The key was to get the young kids
on the court as many games as we
could because they're the ones
that have to step up."
The two returning varsity play-
ers, Marsden and Walchle, figure
to be the team leaders. After that,
two maybe even three fresh-
men are expected to start or at
least see significant playing time
on the varsity team.
Reichenbach has been very
complimentary of Juliana Cavallaro
all summer; he also revealed that
Hannah Revels will likely con-
tribute considerably. But the
biggest surprise this summer has
been the progress of freshman
Lauren Hackett.
Hackett played just one year of
organized basketball, last season
at Pine View School, before join-
ing the Venice Velocity, the area's
girls youth basketball program
directed by Ross and Reichen-
bach. Now she appears to be a
possible four-year varsity player.

Day, Bobby Shusko, Jacob Shusko and Isaac Weintraub pose with the medals
earned at the U.S. Taekwondo Championships in Detroit.


1980, at the 83rd International
Olympic Committee Session in
Moscow, the World Taekwondo
Federation was granted IOC
recognition and became a mem-
ber of the Olympic Games. It


served officially as a full medal
sport in the 2000 Olympic Games
in Sydney. Taekwondo is recog-
nized as the most widely prac-
ticed martial art system in the
world.


"Now she's not only playing
varsity but she could start," Ross
said. "She has a fantastic work
ethic, she listens and applies. You
can't beat that."
To compete with North Port
and Southeast high schools,
Venice will need big contributions
from young players. Last year the
Indians finished 14-13 with five
senior starters, but Reichenbach
doesn't see any reason they can't
at least equal that.
"Our freshmen, they've been
sort of thrown in the fire," he said.
"It's really a time that they can get
to know where their teammates
go when they penetrate and how
to help their teammates on
defense.
"That's a big part of the sum-
mer, is learning each other, each
other's moves offensively and
defensively. That's what was so
nice last year with all the seniors I
had. Those girls had been playing
together, some of them 10 years.
Athletically, we're probably just as
good, but our girls don't know
where other kids are going to be
when they take the ball to the bas-
ket. It's just that cohesiveness
we're trying to get."

Detert, Grant seek GOP Senate nomination


BY MIKE BILLINGTON
STAFF WRITER

Lonnie Ammaz is pay-
ing about twice as much
for insurance for his small
business this year as he
did in 2007.
He's not happy about
that and he wants whoev-
er winds up as his state
senator to do something
about what he thinks are
runaway insurance costs.
"Whoever wins the
election needs to do
something to take control
of these insurance compa-
nies," said Ammaz, who
runs Louie's Bicycles in
North Port. "They keep
raising their rates at the
same time they're posting
record profits. They're
going to drive some of us
out of business because
we can't afford our insur-
ance costs."
The Aug. 26 GOP pri-
mary for the District 23
state Senate seat pits for-
mer state Rep. Nancy
Detert, 63, of Venice
against current state Rep.
Michael Grant, a 58-year-
old Port Charlotte busi-
nessman. Both are
Republican Party power-
houses and both have
been successful business
owners.
Detert founded and ran
a mortgage company in
Venice from 1983 until
2007, when she sold it. She
now works in marketing
for a prominent real estate
firm. Grant, meanwhile,
started a small nonemer-
gency ambulance service
in Port Charlotte that now
has additional offices in
Venice and Sarasota.
Both candidates under-
stand what it takes to
make a business run on a
day-to-day basis, which
gives Ammaz and other
business owners a mea-
sure of hope. Despite
those similarities, howev-
er, Detert and Grant are
not two peas in a pod.
Differences
Grant, for example, bills
himself as a dyed-in-the-
wool conservative. Detert
says she's more of an old-
fashioned Republican with
a reputation in Tallahassee
as being a practical, com-
mon-sense lawmaker.
Grant says the top three
issues in the district are
property taxes, property
insurance and energy.
"If Congress allows the
states to drill offshore, we
could be on our way to
establishing energy inde-
pendence, but I don't
think our exploration of
new energy sources
should be limited to nat-
ural gas and oil," he said.
He favors investigating
alternative energy sources
including coal, wind and
tidal power.
Detert agrees that ener-
gy is on the list of the top
issues facing District 23
residents. Like Grant, she
favors exploring for oil in
the Gulf and seeking out
alternative energy sources.
She said, however, that
something must be done
to shore up the economy.
"I think the economy is
the No. 1 issue in the dis-
trict," she said. "More and
more people are worried
about just keeping their
jobs and their houses."
Experience
Both candidates claim
they have the experience
to succeed state Sen. Lisa
Carlton.
As a state representa-
tive for eight years, for
example, Detert chaired
the House's Commerce,
Tourism and Children and
Family Services commit-
tees. She was the recipient
of numerous "legislator of
the year" awards from
business, professional,


civic and nonprofit orga-
nizations.
As a state representa-
tive since 2004, Grant,
meanwhile, was responsi-


ble for directing millions
of dollars of Hurricane
Charley relief funds to
Charlotte County. He has
also made a reputation as
a consumer advocate and
education reformer dur-


ing his two terms in the them to have more influ- a freshman Senator than thatwhyyourunforoffice?"
House. ence and, therefore, get you can as a third-term The winner of the Aug.
Although both made more done on behalf of representative." 26 GOP primary will face
their reputations in the constituents. Detert echoed his com- Democrat Morgan Bentley
House, Detert and Grant "You have about three ment. and write-in candidate
say that winning a state times more clout," Grant "You can just do more," Robert Waechter, both of
Senate seat would allow said. "You can do more as she said, "and, really, isn't Sarasota.

Maintenance is not only thing he does


BY ALISON POSNER
STAFF WRITER

Dave Lattin is not just
a friendly face around
the Englewood Sports
Complex.
As park attendant for
Sarasota County Parks &
Recreation Department,
Lattin is dedicated to
maintaining the grounds
and keeping a watchful
eye around the premises.
Program director Lissa
Courts said Lattin takes a
lot of pride in everything
he does.
"He's a very hard work-
er, a self-starter and very
creative," she said. "He
also has an eye for art."
Lattin's originality sur-
faces even when he
prunes trees.
"He did an oak tree that
looks like a bonsai tree,"
Courts said.
Lattin, 59, was a head
cook for a state hospital in
Connecticut for many
years until he moved to
Florida 25 years ago. He
then worked as a cook at
Fawcett Memorial Hospital
in Port Charlotte for three
years before taking the job
with Sarasota County. His
job with the county has
taken him from crew
leader on South County
ball fields and outdoor
work at the Englewood
Recreation Center to atten-
dant at the sports complex
five years ago.
Award winner
His 20 years of service
with the county has earned
him a thick file of accom-
plishments. Some of the
many awards he received
from the county include
the Notably Outstanding
Award for creating a but-


terfly garden and refur-
bishing the outside signs at
the complex.
He also won several
quality service awards for
making and designing
outside signs and design-
ing and naming the seven
bodies of water that sur-
round the complex. In
2004, Lattin received the
Performance Recognized
as Outstanding Award,
which is the highest award
given by the county. He
redesigned and land-
scaped the entire complex,
saving the county $37,000.
As Christmas approach-
es, Lattin is preparing a
room in the complex that
he hopes will soon be filled
with toys.
Four years ago, the year
that Hurricane Charley
swept through Charlotte
County, Lattin felt the urge
to help families who were
less fortunate. He initiated
the Caring Toy Drive. As
Christmas approached,
Lattin began collecting
toys, first after cleaning
out his son's room, then he
asked community mem-
bers for donations.
His first year was such a
success that he continued.
The need to help others
overwhelmed him and it
even brought a tear to his
eye.
"I didn't have the heart
to stop because people
kept coming," Lattin said.
Despite the brutal tem-
peratures outdoors, Lattin
has learned how to pace
himself accordingly. And
he enjoys coming to work
every day.
"I really do," he said.
"This is like my second
home."

Youth on a Mission



Kids kick off summer break in good way


BY MATTHEW DUNN-RANKIN
GUEST WRITER

As school bells announced
the beginning of summer, teen-
agers across the country made
it their business to sleep, play
video games and joyfully
accomplish nothing.
Some local students, howev-
er, broke that stereotype by sac-
rificing their first week of free-
dom to wake up early and serve
their community through
Mission Venice.
This year's Mission Venice
took place June 2-6, as youth
from various churches across
Venice found different ways to
meet their mission statement:
"Practicing our faith with the
goal for all Venice to know
Jesus."
The event attracted more
than 120 middle-schoolers,
high-schoolers and adult lead-
ers from seven different church-
es. The students broke into
three groups, which worked
separately each morning, then
gathered at noon to compare
notes and worship together.
Members of the service team
found themselves spreading
their message through physical
labor. One of the group's pro-
jects was to assist Venice High
School's media staff in applying
bar codes to library books. The
staff was impressed with their
work and sent a note to partici-
pating churches that said the
youth "made an enormous job
(that we were not looking for-
ward to) simply disappear.
Come back anytime!"

Giving is not
necessarily easy
The team also ran a car


SPONSORS
Mission Venice was orga-
nized by local students and
was sponsored by local busi-
nesses and churches:

wash, which was not only free,
but refused donations. They
found it's harder to give some-
thing away than you might
think. One man was turned
down more than he could bear:
after his car had been washed,
he drove away, leaving a $5 bill
where his car had been.
Another group of teens spent
their week on the Venice
Christian School soccer field,
leading the On Goal soccer
camp. By teaching both soccer
skills and sharing a Christian
message, the team pursued its
mission of "leading people
toward life's greatest goal."
Sean Ruehr, a 16-year-old
who was participating in


Mission Venice for the first time,
was excited about the week.
"The reason I liked it is that
even as we got to serve God, we
got to have fun with children,"
he said. 'Awesome!"
The third group's challenge
did not come in the form of
physical effort. Rather, the
Evangelism group was present-
ed with the task of sharing their
beliefs with Venice.
Kristina Swanson, a student
leader and self-proclaimed
"MC" of Mission Venice,
explained their mission as
uncomfortable, but vital. She
described her experience as
"having to push myself out of
my comfort zone in order to
encourage others to, as well."
Using methods ranging from
surveys to picture cards of ran-
dom photos, the team poured
their efforts into spreading their
beliefs while maintaining a
"non-threatening" attitude.

Putting it together
This is the sixth year for
Mission Venice.
The concept was developed
by aVenice High School stu-
dent, Deanna Pfundtner, when
she was a junior in high school.
She had just learned that she'd
been rejected from her dream
job as a church summer camp
counselor, and she wondered
what kind of a message God
was sending her.
After a long, sleepless night,
she came to her youth leader
and announced that she want-
ed to organize a week-long, stu-
dent-run, multi-church mission
trip to her hometown. And she
wanted it to happen during the
first week of summer break,
which was only 12 weeks away.


Sean Ruehr and Miranda Coleman learn a little bit about teamwork on the
first day of the Mission Venice program.


The event went off with
amazingly few missteps, and
ever since, it has been run by
students, who are coached by
adult youth leaders. This year, a
group of students met for
breakfast before school once a
week, starting in February. They
planned everything from what
mission work to accomplish, to
promotion, to recruiting adult
helpers.
"That, to me, was one of the
more amazing aspects of it all,"
said Travis Reynolds, youth
director at Venice Bible Church.
"That kids from different
churches can work together


always shakes people's percep-
tions of how churches really can
interact."
All in all, Mission Venice was
a success in the eyes of the par-
ticipants. Many said, if only for
one week, they were able to
make Venice a brighter place.
But why should it only last
that long, asked a rising sixth-
grader, Elizabeth Haley.
"I wish I could do it all sum-
mer!"

Matthew Dunn-Rankin is a
14-year-old student at Pine View
and a participant in this year's
Mission Venice.

Manna Ministry's program gives thanks


FROM THE VENICE
CHURCH OF THE
NAZARENE

In celebration of the
first-year anniversary of
Manna Ministry, the pas-
toral staff at the Venice
Church of the Nazarene
will pay tribute to those
who have helped Venice
people in need through
the program. A worship
service is planned for
10:45 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 3,
2008, at the church, where
individuals, businesses
and volunteers will be rec-
ognized for their dona-
tions and support. The
public is welcome.
"Since our first Sunday
evening of Manna Min-
istry on Aug. 5, 2007, we
have served over 1,300
people," said the Rev.
David Shore, senior pastor



RELIGION BRIEFS


of Venice Church of the
Nazarene. "We could not
have done this without the
generous and loving sup-
port of our community."
In a letter to the Venice
Gondolier Sun, the Rev.
Shore explained that the
list is long in terms of
those hurting and being
helped in Venice. It
includes widows whose
incomes have dropped
since the death of their
spouse, the working poor,
people who cannot work
because of an illness, peo-
ple who feel hopeless due
to owing thousands in
medical bills, single moth-
ers, people who have gone
through divorce, people
who have lost their jobs,
people who cannot find
jobs and people who are
losing their home or rental.
"Our goal is to be a


bridge from despair to dig-
nity by offering spiritual,
emotional and physical
(food) needs," the Rev.
Shore said.
An invitation is also
open to those who are in
need of food for the Body
and the Soul at the Venice
Church of the Nazarene at
a 6 p.m. worship service
every Sunday at 1535 E.
Venice Ave. Registration is
at 5:30 p.m. Bags of gro-
ceries are distributed at no
cost to anyone, regardless
of age, sex, race, national
origin or religion. It will
require your name,
address, phone number
and your date of birth.
Family members must be
present to receive family
sized portions.

visit www.venicenazarene.
com or call or 488-5007.

What's new in South Venice Beach


BY LARAINE JANSEN
COLUMNIST

It may be a quiet summer for
some folks, but the committees
of the South Venice Civic
Association have been very busy.
The board and the committees
are pleased to report on the fol-
lowing:
Meet the Candidates Open
House in a special insert in
the Aug. 8 issue of the Gondolier
Sun, South County voters will
find an invitation to attend the
Aug. 11 Meet the Candidates
Open House from 6 to 8 p.m. at
the South Venice Community
Center, 720 Alligator Drive,
South Venice, hosted free of
charge as a service by the board
of the SVCA.
Meet more than 35 candi-
dates running in the primary
elections, talk with them on a
one-to-one basis and pick up


STUDY AND CLASSES


their literature. Attending will be
the candidates for national and
state offices within our district,
and Sarasota County commis-
sion, school board, judgeships,
charter review board, property
appraiser, sheriff, supervisor of
elections and tax collector.
Code compliance reorganiza-
tion Sarasota County Code
Enforcement will guide a new
task force of SouthVenice citizens
in an initiative to improve the
appearance and safety of our
neighborhoods. The organiza-
tional meeting will be held on
Tuesday, July 29, at 2 p.m. at the
SouthVenice Community Center.
A changing population,
including renters, need to com-
ply with the county codes and
we need to help. All interested
persons are encouraged to
attend.
South Venice Beach Expo -
yes, we are starting to put


together the ninth annual South
Venice Beach Expo, which will
be held on Saturday, Jan. 10, in
our community center. During
August the previous year's
exhibitors will have the first right
of refusal to reserve a booth, and
after that all businesses are invit-
ed to attend.
During these uncertain eco-
nomic times, we are encourag-
ing folks to "Shop at Home" and
we know the exhibitors will want
to meet new customers from
within the greater Venice area.
South Venice CERT South
Venice has an active Community
Emergency Response Team with
more than 25 members who
have been educated by Sarasota
County about disaster prepared-
ness for hazards that may affect
this area.
They have been trained in
basic disaster response skills
such as fire safety, light search


and rescue, team organization
and disaster medical operations.
The team meets each month
on the second Thursday of the
month at the South Venice
Community Center at 7 p.m.,
and they welcome anyone who
may be interested. This is your
chance to learn how to be a sur-
vivor, not a victim, in case a dis-
aster should affect the neighbor-
hood.
The county is planning an ini-
tial training class soon, so if you
are interested, please attend the
next South Venice CERT meeting
on Thursday, Aug. 14.
Wi-Fi at the community cen-
ter the South Venice Civic
Association is always looking for
ideas about how to involve more
of its neighbors in activities.
Next month it is going to install
wireless Internet in the commu-
nity center building.
It hopes to begin programs


for kids of all ages, including
adults, to come to the building
to join study groups, computer
game groups and so on. Look for
more information in this article
next month.
South Venice Garden Club -
the South Venice Garden Club is
already planning fascinating
programs for the upcoming sea-
son. With more than 70 mem-
bers, this active affiliate of the
SVCA is a must for those who
love nature. Its programs stimu-
late the interest of skilled gar-
deners as well as beginners.
Contact the SVCA at 493-0006
with questions you may have
about any of the activities in this
article.
The SVCA office is open on
Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., or you can
leave a phone message and your
call will be returned during busi-
ness hours.

Many -
people with back
^ pain turn to custom-
made orthotics and other,
S more generally available
forms of shoe insoles in the
hope that they will bring some
relief. While it may seem
reasonable to assume that these
foot-cushioning devices may take
) some of the stress off an aching
back, there is evidence that shows
otherwise. In fact, when Israeli
researchers recently analyzed six
studies that evaluated back pain
among people who either did or did
not use insoles, they found that the
shoe inserts neither prevented nor
treated pain significantly. It was
concluded that shoe inserts may
cushion the feet, but they do not
address alignment issues that
are an underlying cause of back
pain. For that, a chiropractor is
needed.

An idle solution to a racing engine: A friend of mine has a 1997 Honda
CR-V which he bought used a few years ago. It is generally in good shape
but has a problem that has become more and more alarming during the

Two rare fiberglass beauties


Busy is the word
fitting yours truly
and wife Lee since
starting these articles
almost five months ago.
It's a fun busy however,
gathering information for
future stones, interview-
ing interesting people
involved with the car
collector hobby, attend-
ing various shows and
cruise ins, etc. all of
this plus trying to main-
tain our personal lives,
six antique vehicles and
overseeing the largest
most active chapter of
the Veteran Motor Car
Club of America. Regard-
ing the previous sen-
tence, thank God for
having good friends,
conscientious member
leaders and a great
cooperative staff at the
Sun papers. With that
said, which I purposely
put up front so readers
could not miss it, I'll
move on to tell about the
1937 Cord and 1964
Studebaker shown in the
photos. They are as
different as night and
day, yet each were very
innovative when new and
remain an image present-
ly. The cars are owned by
George and Barbara
Chamberlain of Punta
Gorda, originally from
Massachusetts, and the
background of said cars,
and the Chamberlains, is
very interesting.
As a boy of 11, George
was pumping gas at a
family friend's Atlantic
station in Braintree,
Mass., followed up by
doing oil changes,
tuneups and mechanical
repairs. Such part-time
"employment" brought
him into contact with
some fancy "wheels."
With that background,
the Navy offered him a
deal from 1955-1959,
he was a jet engine
mechanic. Civilian life
was good to him car-wise
-he had, at one time or
another, a 1939 Ford, a
1950 Caddy, a 1952
Chevrolet Fleetline, a
1953 Studebaker coup, a
1959 Vespa and his
favorite, a 1951 Mercury.
Of course, he wishes
some of those were still
in their garage Naturally,
after retiring in 1998 as
engineering project
manager at Gillette Co.
(Barbara's job was
performance improve-
ment statistician for
Caritas Christi Healthcare
Systems), there remained
the urge to own a collec-
tor car or maybe two.
The couple have four
children, 12 grandchil-
dren and four great-
grandchildren. This will
come as a surprise to
those who know them,
due to them looking so
young. "Oh, the good life"
- surely you remember
the Tony Bennett song?
Back to cars they
wanted special interest-


type vehicles, ones that
would be dependable,
easy to maintain and not
cookie-cutter styles. Both
came via the Internet, the
reproduction Cord from a
Cadillac dealer in Illinois
in 2000. The 1964 Avanti,
an original factory-built
Studebaker, one of 807
built, was designed by
Raymond Lowry in less
than 90 days to be an
image-maker for this
floundering manufactur-
er. That effort in 1961 led
to an early 1963 model
that actually hit the
showrooms in 1962. It
had a fiberglass body
over a special frame; a
289-cubic-inch engine
turning out 240 horse-
power up to 335 hp with
a supercharger. Weighing
only 3140 pounds, they
were fast! A heavily
modified version was
clocked at 172 mph and
when tweaked even
more, ran 212 mph on
the salt flats. Chamber-
lain's is a standard 240
hp, three-speed automat-
ic with many power
accessories and power
front brakes, which all
Avantis had. Its engine is
very ample developing
crisp performance. The
cost new was $4,445 -
sadly, more than
Corvette. This plus slow,
poor production meth-
ods restricted volume
caused Studebaker to
close down the Avanti
(Italian, meaning "For-
ward") division and the
Hawk series shortly after
introducing the almost
unchanged 1963 models
as 1964s. The dies and all
parts were sold, resulting
in Avanti II. That compa-
ny sold to another who is
still turning out this
"Forever young time-
less" design. At least
that's what I call it.
George and Barbara
made the deal to pur-
chase their Avanti online
from O'Hara Restorations
in Frostproof, Fla., in
2005. They are rightfully
proud of it, and it shows.
Going backward to the
Cord, which was part of
the Auburn, Dusenberg
Cord Company where
Erret L. Cord became
president in 1926. The
Depression wiped them
out, yet Cord gathered
enough backers to create
some powerful sporty
models known as 1936-
37s called 810's and 812's.
Things didn't work out
and once more they were
shut down, permanently
this time.
"Our Cord, a 1937
SAMCO (Sports Automo-
bile Manufacturing Co.)


was built in 1969. Bill
Lear of Lear Jet fame
purchased the rights to
the Cord name and set
up a factory in Tulsa,
Okla. He produced about
400 Cord reproductions,
320 with Ford 302 Mus-
tang drive lines, 80 with
440 Chrysler drive lines.
The Ford powered cars,
which is what we have,
were 80 percent of the
original Cord size,
sometimes referred to the
"three-quarter Cord." The
Chrysler powered cars
were full-sized. Gordon
Buhrig, the designer of
the original Cord,
redesigned this scaled-
down car with a fiber-
glass body, equipped
with A/C, power steering
and an automatic trans-
mission. Our Cord is a
"fun car to drive!"
This twosome, with
their twosome of rare
drivable automobiles,
can be found most
anywhere you see a
hobby gathering. Just like
all "car people", you'll
find them easy to talk to
about four-wheel or real
gems.
Note this change for
the good: The last Satur-
day Wal-Mart Punta
Gorda Cruise-In, at Jones
Loop and Taylor roads,
from 9:30 a.m.-12:30
p.m., is going to continue
in the future as a regular
event. This was verified
by David Cordial, store
manager, and Robert
Howell, one of his
assistant managers
assigned to head the
affair. Thus, you readers
can mark your calendars
as such beginning this
Saturday and in the
future. Complimentary
coffee and pastries will
be available for the first
hour to those who bring
any type of vehicle at
least 20 years old. There
will be gift card drawings
for door prizes, and no


registration fees. Ray
Negrycz (941-639-8220)
will be the official assis-
tant representing
VMCCA. If in doubt of
the weather at the show
site, call the store at 941-
637-3800 or Ray.
Note this change,
also for the good:
Reference the New
Cruise-In held by Home
Depot and other mer-
chants of Burnt Store
Promenade Center along


U.S. 41. That change is
this event will now be
held the first and third
Saturday of each month
starting in August. As
usual, special prizes,
door prizes and food
discounts will remain in
place as before. It's open
to any and all collector
hobby vehicles. No
registration fees. Long-
time car fancier (since
the '60s) Steve Estok is
the coordinator. Call

So you want to hunt alligators


The other day I
drove by a small
group of people
huddled around a
pickup truck with a
caged trailer in a parking
lot and noticed
bystanders snapping
photos with their cell
phones. Curiosity got
the best of me, so I
pulled into the lot to
rubberneck. There, in
the cage, was a huge
alligator a nuisance
gator a trapper had
caught. It was clear that
the gator wasn't very
happy about its predica-
ment. It came out of a
local golf course pond
and apparently didn't
like what was about to
happen to it. I assumed
it was to be transported
to another location, but
I didn't ask, so I really
don't know its fate.
It was an awesome
specimen; one that I
certainly wouldn't want
to tangle with. So it was
with some interest that
I read a press release


,: .I. I I I H:L
from the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission about
alligator hunting.
Apparently there are a
lot of folks that do want
to tangle with gators
because, "All hunt
permits have been sold
for this year; however,
alligator trapping
"agent" permits are
available for $52. Agent
permits enable permit
holders to assist a
licensed trapper in
taking alligators but
only in the presence of
that trapper." For a
brief second or two I
toyed with the idea of


=011101*111OL11111LIM


getting an "agent"
permit and going out
with a licensed trapper
for the experience. I
eventually came to my
senses and thought
better of the idea.
But some of you may
be interested in the
adventure or may want
to learn about alligator
hunting. Heck, some of
you may even hold a
gator hunting permit
but don't really know
what to do. So the FWC
is offering classes to
educate those interest-
ed. Read on:

FWC OFFERS GATOR-
HUNTING CLASSES
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission is offering
alligator hunters no-
cost, three-hour classes
to help them prepare for
the Aug. 15 Nov. 1
statewide alligator
harvest. Reservations are
not required to attend a
class.
Attendance is not


mandatory for licensed
hunters, but the FWC
recommends that
participants attend,
especially if they have
not previously hunted
for alligators. Class
topics include preparing
for the hunt, hunting
techniques and safety,
harvesting and process-
ing, caring for your
alligator hide and
alligator hunting rules
and regulations. Also,
persons who do not
have an alligator harvest
permit can attend if they
want to learn what
hunting alligators is all
about.
Classes will be offered
at the following locations:

July 26, 1-4 p.m. Dania
Beach, IGFA Fishing Hall of
Fame and Museum, 300 Gulf
Stream Way. For directions, call
954-922-4212 or visit

paragraph about their
situation, why they want
to take the course and

Permitted alligator hunters

licenses and hide-validation

Gator hunting has to
be a unique experience
and one that I might
have considered when I
was younger and braver.
But I'm of the age that if
I had to get out of a
gator's way in a hurry, I'd
probably end up in the
emergency room, so I'll
pass but it does
sound intriguing.

New fishing regulation


goes into effect today


Did you know that
a new fishing
regulation goes
into effect today? Yep,
with little fanfare the
National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Adminis-
tration has banned
recreational anglers
from harvesting sandbar
and silky sharks from the
federal waters of the Gulf
of Mexico and the
Atlantic Ocean effective
on July 24, 2008.
The new rule will have
a modest effect on most
local anglers. Few silky
sharks are landed in local
waters but there is a fairly
productive local fishery
for sandbar sharks (often
called brown sharks by
Gulf anglers). Most of the
sandbar sharks caught in
this area are adult fish in
the 5- to 8-foot size
range, and most seem to
be caught a few miles
offshore in the Gulf in the


late winter and early
spring. Sandbar sharks
have two identifying
characteristics that help
distinguish them from
other sharks that are
similar in appearance:
Sandbar sharks have
larger pectoral and dorsal
fins than do most other
sharks, and sandbar
sharks are one of only a
few species that have a
hard, almost solid ridge
that runs along the top of
their back rearward of
the dorsal fin. Other
sharks with such a dorsal
ridge include silky sharks
and dusky sharks. Since
dusky sharks are already
a protected species,
starting today any time a
Gulf angler fishing in
federal waters catches a
shark with a dorsal ridge,
that shark will have to be
released.
Federal waters in the
Gulf of Mexico are those


waters more than 9
nautical miles offshore of
Florida's Gulf coast. State
waters lie inside the 9-
mile boundary and at
this time Florida has not
added sandbar or silky
sharks to the list of sharks
protected in state waters.
In the past, Florida
regulations have tended
to follow the federal
regulations, so it seems
likely that Florida will
follow suit and eventually
ban the harvest of these
two species in inshore
waters, perhaps as soon
as January 1. This would
mean that next year's
sandbar shark fishing,
which usually gets
underway in February or
March, would be all
catch-and-release.
Granted there are only
a few anglers who catch
and keep sandbar sharks
affected by this new rule,
but it was almost a lot


worse. In the originally
proposed draft of this
new rule NOAA had
proposed a ban on the
recreational harvest of
blacktip, spinner, bull
and some other species
of sharks in addition to
the ban on sandbars and
silkys. NOAAs reasoning:
Many shark species are
similar in appearance
and recreational anglers
can't be trusted to
correctly identify the
species of sharks they
land. A public outcry
regarding this overly
broad ban on recre-
ational shark harvest
caused NOAA to recon-
sider and the final result
was that only sandbars
and silkys have been
added to the list of
protected shark species.
Sometimes the fishery
managers do listen to
angler comments. In the
coming months NOAA


'1


i g f!1 A : ml I Il


will try to educate
anglers about shark
identification by produc-
ing booklets and pam-
phlets describing the
most common species.
By the way, the
National Marine Fish-
eries Service has just
announced that blac-
knose sharks are
overfished and new
regulations will be
forthcoming to limit the
harvest of these small
but very common
sharks. It never ends.

Why choose a type I (offshore) life jacket?


Did you ever
wonder how a
life jacket with 15
to 22 pounds of buoyan-
cy could keep a 200-
pound person afloat? If
you tie a 22-pound
block to an offshore or
type I life jacket (22
pounds of buoyancy)
the jacket will keep the
block suspended in the
water. Tie the same
jacket to a 23-pound
block, and the block will
sink to the bottom,
pulling the jacket down
with it. So how does that
life jacket keep a 200-
pound adult afloat?


I- .I[II -:i'




A human body has
natural flotation; an
overweight person has
more flotation than a
well-muscled and lean
person (muscle is denser
than fat). When in the


water about 80 percent
of your body is sub-
merged and has a
neutral buoyancy, so the
life jacket only needs to
support the weight of
the 20 percent that is
above water, minus the
natural buoyancy of
your body fat. An
average person has
about 15 percent body
fat, which is lighter than
water and provides
additional flotation. In
the case of our 200-
pound person, that 15
percent body fat actually
provides 30 pounds of
buoyancy (15 percent of


200 pounds).
Now we need to follow
the math closely. Our
200-pound person has
neutral buoyancy for the
80 percent that is
submerged in the water
(80 percent of 200
pounds is 160 pounds).
So 160 pounds is floating
neutrally in the water
and being aided by an
additional buoyancy of
30 pounds from his body
fat (15 percent of 200
pounds is 30 pounds).
The 160 plus 30 is 190
and leaves a 200-pound
person with only 10
pounds to be buoyed up


by the life jacket. Thus a
life jacket with 22
pounds of buoyancy can
keep him afloat.
The most common
Coast Guard approved


life jackets are the type I
and type II, better
known as offshore and
nearshore. The

Trappin' big bass in the hydrilla


W at better way
to catch bass
V than to throw
a Rat-L-Trap through
the hydrilla waiting for
a strike to occur? When
it does, the fight can
make landing a bass in
this type of cover
extremely difficult.
Sometimes, you have
to pull through the
hydrilla just to see if
the fish is still hooked
to the lure.
There are a few
things you can do to
improve your catch
ratio when fishing any
type of crankbait in
grassy cover. Depend-
ing on how thick the
cover is, I like to


change the size of the
hooks I use on my
baits.
If the cover is sparse
and scattered, I like to
put on a slightly bigger
treble hook. The bait
has less of a tendency
to get caught up in the
cover when it is


M fill] I On I 1"s


scattered or thinned
out. The bigger treble
hook allows you to get
a better hook-up when
the fish bite, and there
is a less likely chance
of a fish throwing the
hook while you are
getting it back to the
boat.
If the cover is a little
thicker and harder to
get the bait through, I
like a smaller treble
hook. This gets hung
up in the cover a little
less and makes it easier
to get the bait through
it. There is one draw-
back to this however.
When you have a fish
hooked up and he
wants to come to the


surface, the smaller
treble hooks do not
seem to hold as well as
the larger sizes. The
fish has the ability to
throw the hook, espe-
cially when it has the
added weight of the
cover hanging all over
the hook.
Just this past week-
end my partner Missy
and I were fishing in
our couples club and
using this technique.
She had a larger size
treble hook on her bait,
while I threw a smaller
one with smaller treble
hooks. She managed to
land the big fish of the
tournament, but
struggled at times


getting her bait
through the heavier
hydrilla we were
fishing in. I managed
to boat three fish in the
same hydrilla mainly
due to the fact that I
could get the bait
through the cover
easier than she could.
The smaller hooks
were not getting hung
up as much as the
larger hooks appeared
to be.
Combined, we
managed a strong
second place finish
that moved us to
within two points of
the club champi-
onship. That will be
determined on the next


Spoons are highly effective lures


W en I was about
eight years old
my dad gave
me my very first fishing
lure. It was a classic red
and white Daredevl
chosen from his gigantic
collection of spoon-
shaped lures. I'll bet that
somewhere in your
tackle box you will find
that famous smiling
Satan logo. After all,
Daredevls (and yes, that
is spelled correctly) used
to dominate the North
American spoon market.
But there are a lot more
competitors out there
now: FINN, Luhr-Jensen,
Nestor, Foilistic, etc. I was
sorting through a mess of
tackle on one of the rainy
days last week. Golly gee,
I don't remember buying
all those spoons. Some of
were pretty crusty. Some
were new in the package.
But I found the one I was
looking for a gold
spoon buzzer made by


ibl 'glj I ]

Nemire Lures. It's
basically a spoon with a
rotating spinner on the
front. Why was I looking
for this one?
Well, right now we are
at the peak of the
summer heat / rain
cycle. The backwaters
are warm and full of
fighting fish. But the
water is getting dirty
from the excessive
runoff. That means
baitfish are hovering
high in the water table
looking for tidbits. And
the gamefish are more


likely to be attracted to
the sound of thrashing
bait. Heavily actioned
spoons (like the one I
have described) worked
just under the surface
are a great way to target
surface feeding fish.
I have heard that you
should retrieve these
noisy lures relatively
slowly, but don't let them
sink down to the bottom.
And make sure and hold
the rod tip high. You can't
really employ the "let it
sit until they come back"
approach that is com-
monly used with floating
surface lures.
Here are some
spoon-fed facts that
might interest you: Most
of these lures are actually
very "fish friendly." The
hooks are presented at
the rear of the lure. This
gives spoons a good
hookup rate. Plus, this
type of lure supports a
single, rather than


multiple hook arrange-
ment, which means
unhooking fish is
generally quick and easy.
This means they have a
better chance of surviv-
ing in the livewell or back
in the water.
Generally made of
metal, spoons sink, and
therefore can be present-
ed at any water level.
Spoons that have a high
surface area to mass
ratio will tend to flutter
while sinking. This
makes them a prime
target on the drop and
while being retrieved.
I am primarily a
livebait fisherman. But I
have a neighbor who
fishes exclusively with
artificial lures. He tells
me that you should fish
"regular" spoons a little
faster than plugs. They
are designed to have less
resistance in the water
and are extremely
effective when fished


with a stop-start retrieve.
Oh, and he gave me one
more tip: Instead of
jerking the rod tip as you
would when fishing a
weighted soft plastic, use
a few quick winds on
your reel.
I have a fair-sized
collection of spoons in
my tackle box as
every inshore fisherman
should. But not surpris-


ingly, I didn't come
across that old red and
white Daredevl from my
father. It's probably
rusting its life away
hung on a tree branch
near some Minnesota
lake. And we both know
how it got there.

and final tournament
of the year.
Just don't be afraid to
throw those treble
hooks into the
hydrilla. If you can
find a spot where it is
a little thinned out
and there are baitfish
present, it can sure be
a bait that catches a
lot of bass. Pay atten-
tion to the hook sizes
though. It will make
the difference in how
many you get hooked
as well as how many
you land.

Big redfish and


docks don't mix


Above, we guys can take
lessons from JoAnne
Landaker. Not only did
she get her Grand
Master Angler level at
the PGI fishing club, but
the next night she went
out and caught this 50-
inch cobia.


A lovely
Charlotte
Harbor tarpon.


Have you ever
noticed that
sometimes you
can do everything right
and still lose a nice fish,
and at other times, you
make every mistake in
the book and still land it?
This is a story about the
latter.
While fishing alone
and working a row of
docks I hooked a big
redfish. It wanted no
part of coming out from
under the dock with its
barnacle-covered
pilings, which gave it an
advantage over me. Little
by little, I began winning
the battle and almost
had it clear of the dock.
The only trouble was the
fish pulled me so close
to the dock that I was
running out of room. I
countered by turning my
trolling motor sideways
and flooring it. Eighty
pounds of thrust going
one way and a desperate
red pulling the other
way, sure enough, over I
went. There I was,
treading water while
holding my rod over my
head with the red still
pulling away. I managed
to get back to my boat,
but there was no way I
could get back on,
especially with my rod in
one hand. I was, howev-
er, able to pull myself up
high enough to stick the
rod in one of the center
console rod holders.
Now I had to get back
into the boat. Between
being slightly exhausted
and weighed down with
wet clothes, after several
tries, I realized, "this isn't
going to happen." I
spotted a ladder on the
back side of another


dock and decided that
was my best bet. I was
able to reach a bow line
on the boat's front deck
and began dog-paddling
towards the dock with
one hand while pulling
the boat with the other,
all the while, watching
my $100 Shimano
Teramar rod bending in
the shape of a C and
thinking it would snap at
any moment.
I reached the dock,
tied the boat to the front
side and swam under it
to the ladder. It was one
of those aluminum jobs
with a latch on it,
designed to keep the
lower half out of the
water. Naturally, the
latch was corroded. After
wrestling with it for at
least a couple of min-
utes, I was finally able to
lower it. I climbed up
onto the dock, put the
ladder back in place and
jumped back in my boat.
My rod was still bent to
just short of its breaking
point. The red was still
on; I couldn't believe it. I
grabbed the rod, but I
was unable to move the


fish. It had wrapped
itself around a lone
piling between the
docks. I motored toward
it, loosened the drag and
fortunately it swam back
around the piling and
towards open water. The
battle didn't last too long
after that the red
wasn't the only one who
was pooped.
But that's not the end
of the story. I noticed a
dolphin in the area, but
didn't think much of it. I
reached down and
grabbed the red and
just as I was pulling it
out of the water the
dolphin came up from
under the boat looking
like Jaws. It just missed
the fish and my hand.
The red was oversized,
but it was in no condition
to be released yet,
especially with the
dolphin still circling
around. I coaxed it along
for at least 10 minutes
before it finally got its
wind back and stayed
belly down. I moved
away from the dolphin
and finally released the
fish. As I watched the big
bull scurry away, I
thought to myself that it
had to be thinking,
"What the heckjust
happened?" I know I was.

JACKET
From page 4
nearshore, or type II, are
the orange keyhole type.
They are the least
expensive and thus the
most common. They
have 15.5 pounds of
flotation, will sometimes
turn an unconscious
person face up and are
intended for use in areas
where rescue may be
quick thus the name
nearshore. An offshore
life jacket, or type I, has
22 pounds of flotation, is
designed to turn an
unconscious person face
up and is intended to be
used where rescue may


take some time thus
the name offshore.
When considering the
high potential of trauma
or hypothermia in
instances of a man
overboard, the value of a
jacket that will float you
face up while uncon-
scious is immeasurable.
And while the difference
in 15.5 and 22 pounds of
flotation initially seems
small, it is in fact 42
percent more flotation.
Depending on your total
weight and body fat, that
additional flotation can
be the difference of
floating in the water
instead of pulling your
life jacket with you as
you sink to the bottom.


Remember that 23-
pound block? One
pound can be the
difference between
sinking and floating.
Hopefully the additional
42 percent of buoyancy
and the capability to
float you face up will be
enough to convince you
to invest in offshore,
type I, life jackets. Don't
be a 23-pound block-
head. Provide the best
protection for you and
your crew when select-
ing your safety gear.

Time for another
birthday at the World

Kim
Cool




here is
reaways something to cel-
ebrate at Walt Disney
World Resort where the next
biggie will be the 20th anniver-
sary of the Grand Floridian
Hotel. The best part of Disney
celebrations is that they gener-
ally last a long time. If you can't
be there on a specific day, not
to worry.
The Year of a Million Dreams
is into its second year. Why
not? Everyday Disney guests
have dreams come true.
Sometimes they are little
dreams like being moved to the
head of the line for a favorite
ride. Other times they are huge
dreams like spending the night
in the lavish guest suite at the
Cinderella castle. It truly is
spectacular with its family-size
jacuzzi tub, silk fabrics
trimmed in gold, incredible
views and a personal concierge
on 24-hour call. I was fortunate
enough to see it the day it
received its first overnight
guests in April 2007. My visit
lasted 10 minutes but I did get
to stay at the Grand Polynesian
that night, a dream of mine
since 1974, when I made my
first visit to Walt Disney's
dream World.
A stay at the Grand Floridian
was another dream come true
and now those Disney folks are
refurnishing and renovating it,
adding flat-screen TVs, new
draperies and a yacht. A 52-
foot Searay will be available for
charter and also to offer a new
way to view the fireworks from
the Magic Kingdom. Having
been on a 48-foot Searay once,
my guess is that this too may
turn out to be a dream item for
a few lucky guests.
If you prefer single-day cele-
brations July 25 is National
Hot Fudge Sundae Day appro-
priate during national Ice
Cream Month.
May your dreams come true.

COVER STORY
July 24 25, 2008


Let's Go! Page 3


Golden Apple offers a five-in-one musical


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
"The Musical of Musicals:
the Musical!" is more than a
musical it is an event.
Spoofing great American
musicals of the past, "The
Musical of Musicals: The
Musical!" uses four talented
performers to deliver one clas-
sic story five ways at Sarasota's
Golden Apple Dinner Theatre.
In this case the story is about a
single girl (Jessica Hanson as
June, Jeune, Junie Faye, Junita
and Juny) who "can't pay the
rent," her evil landlord
(William Garon as Jidder,
Jitter, Mr. Jitter Phantom Jitter
and Jutter), a hero (Kip Taisy
as Big Willy, Billy, William, Bill
and Villy) and a matron (Cara
Herman as Mother Abby, Abby,
Auntie Abby, Abigail von
Schtarr, Fraulein Abby)).
The music is in the style of
Rogers and Hammerstein,
Stephen Sondheim, Jerry
Herman, Andrew Lloyd
Webber and John Kander and
Fred Ebb, Part of the fun of the
show is that one recognizes
the music and, sometimes the
words, but there is always
something about the way the
words and music and spoofed
and delivered that makes this
show both funny and fun.
Adding to the adventure,
Apple producers invite those
in the audience to figure out
the musical source of the
songs. There is even a mystery
show. Answers can be found
within the program.
Based on the show
"Oklahoma," and featuring the
song "Corn," the opening
number offers Herman the
chance to shine as Mother
Abby singing "The rainbow is
your dream" to the tune of
"Climb Every Mountain" from
the "Sound of Music" as set in
the "South Pacific." This musi-
cal is as packed with parodies
as the previous sentence is
packed with nonsensical
descriptive phrases.
The storyline of Scene 2 is "A


Little Complex," presented in
the often-neurotic manner of
Stephen Sondheim, as even
the musical's subtitles become
spoofs of the various
composers' works.
And so it goes, parody after
parody, laugh after laugh as
the four players change
characters without needing
to change costumes or sets
- except for a certain bench,
which needs some special
handling at least twice,
earning applause each time.
Garon is the villainous
landlord who will have his way
with poor June if she doesn't
pay the rent. As the show
progresses, Garon manages to
turn himself into just about
every type of villain known to
film and theater. In a spoof on
"Cabaret" he is more like Joel
Gray than Grey himself. The
villain is the meatiest charac-
ter in the show, and Garon has
no trouble rising to the occa-
sion in each and every scene.
Nor do his fellow actors who
each turn in fine perfor-
mances of their own individ-
ual lists of characters.


rriuu0 rrI-uvIuC
Kip Taisey, Jessica Hanson,
William Garon in "The Musical of
Musicals: the Musical!"
Musical director John Visser
also becomes a performer
in this show, changing hats
and personalities for each
scene while providing the
piano music that ties
everything together.
Choreographed by Dewayne


Cara Herman in "The Musical of
Musicals: the Musical!"
Barrett, the show is directed
and designed by Michael
Newton-Brown. Costumes
are by Dee Richards.
A funny thing may have
happened on the road to


1 I ll I I I
II 1 ',I I I I I '
I I I I I I I '
i l l I I . . .


Decorum but not nearly as
funny as all the schticks that
happen in this production
with its spoofs of "Sweeney
Todd," "The Phantom,"
"Flower Drum Song," "Evita,"
"Chicago," "Carousel,"
Assassins," and other
Broadway shows.
"The Musical of Musicals!
The Musical!" runs through
August 31.
The Sarasota Golden Apple
Dinner Theatre is at 25 N.
Pineapple Ave., Sarasota.
Tickets include a buffet lunch,
supper or dinner preceding
the show. Four- and three-

'True West' is


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The Banyan Theatre's second
offering of the summer, Sam
Shepard's "True West," is one
of those spell-binding stories,
in which you fear you know
what is going to happen and
you do but you don't.
The story concerns two
brothers: Lee, the bad seed,
played by R. Ward Duffy and
Austin, the perfect Ivy League
graduate, good son and some-
what successful film writer,
played by Eric Hissom.
Austin is house-sitting for
their mother (Nina Hughes)
who is away in Alaska. Also in

The Charlotte County

the cast is J. Bloomrosen as
Saul Kimmer, a Hollywood
producer.
As the story begins. Austin is
hard at work on his next
screenplay, despite the dis-
tractions emanating from his
brother who is the personifi-
cation of an angry man. One
just knows that something
bad is going to happen and
not just to their mother's
pristine home.
Lee, who is abysmally
unkempt and dirty, lives in the
desert and makes his living as
a con man and thief. When he
meets Sol, Lee "convinces" the
producer that he has a


space with active and passive
recreational amenities
for public use.
Set among a natural environ-
ment of mangroves and the
beautiful, serene Sunrise
Waterway, the active elements
of the park include tennis courts,
a fishing pier, canoe/kayak

walking trail and picnic facilities.

Elsa and Fred (PG) NEW
Elsa and Fred is a story about two people
who, at the end of the road, discover that it's
never too late to love... or to dream. Elsa is
82 years-old and for the past 60 years she's
dreamt of a moment that Fellini had already
envisaged: the scene of La Dolce Vita at the
Fontana di Trevi. The same scene without Anita
Ekberg in it but Elsa instead. Without Marcello
Mastroiani but with that love that took so long
to arrive. Alfredo is a bit younger than Elsa and
was always a good man who did everything he
was supossed to do. After losing his wife, he
feels disturbed and confused and his daughter
decides that it would be best if he moved into
a smaller apartment where he'll meet Elsa.
From that moment on, everything changes.

Station, headquarters of the National Science
Foundation and home to eleven hundred peo-
ple during the austral summer (Oct-Feb). Over
the course of his journey, Herzog examines
human nature and Mother nature, juxtaposing
breathtaking locations with the profound, sur-

marine biologists, physicists, plumbers, and
truck drivers who choose to form a society as
far away from society as one can get.

stalwart superstar Agent 23 (Dwayne "The
Rock" Johnson). Smart is partnered instead
with the only other agent whose identity has
not been compromised: the lovely-but-lethal
veteran Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway). As Smart
and 99 get closer to unraveling KAOS' master
plan-and each other-they discover that key
KAOS operative Siegfried (Terence Stamp) and
his sidekick Shtarker (Kenneth Davitian) are
scheming to cash in with their network of terror.

Ringling Museum hosts 'Phantasmagoric' show


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Circus and real estate tycoon
John Ringling bequeathed one of
the word's most valuable collec-
tions of Impressionistic art to the
people of Florida.
That it came with his John and
Mable Ringling Museum of Art
was a bonus. Today considered
one of the 20 most valuable
museums in the United States,
the museum continues to
broaden its public offerings with
new acquisitions and traveling
shows.
Its current such special show
is Phantasmagoria: Specter of
Absence, which continues
through Aug. 10 in the new Ulla
R. and Arthur E Searing Wing.
Think shadows, death, mys-
tery, illusion, allusion, static art
and animated art. Most art
evokes feelings and thoughts.
This show may inspire viewers to
search the depth of their own
souls and the way in which they
view this world and, perhaps,
that other world, whatever that
other world is.
The exhibition includes instal-
lations, videos, drawings and
objects sharing the common
theme of absence or loss a
total of 12 mixed media works by
artists from around the world.
One of the least complicated
works is a black and white car-
toon-like drawing, inspired by a
person in the act of making
shadows on the wall, using
hands and fingers. It was created
by Julie Nord in 2007 with a
black marker pen and water
paint. At the other extreme are
works that use projectors, mir-
rors, water, a fog machine
and/or videos to tell their stories.
If there is a common thread to
the works in the exhibition it is
shadows those images that
result from an absence of light.
The term "phantasmagoria" is
an 18th-century word to
describe the projections of mov-
ing shadows and other effects
used in traveling shows of that
time. The familiar was blown out
of proportion, often affecting the
viewers's emotions often in
dark and even scary ways.

The Hands, 2007. Site-specific wall drawing made with black paint marker and water-based paint, by Julie Nord.


In the Ringling show, contem-
porary artists have used the
same techniques but with the
addition of modern technology
not available 100 years ago to
call forth similar emotions with
their often ghostly images.
Imagine looking at a mirror
and not seeing yourself but
instead seeing the image nearly
swallowed in a fog. Artist Jeppe
Hein used this technique to ask
the viewer to explore his or her
feelings in regard to loss up to
an including the ultimate loss -
death.
In addition to Hein, the artists
include Christian Boltanski
(French painter), Jim Campbell
(American electronic artist),
Michel Delacroix (French
painter), Laurent Grasso (French
installation artist), William
Kentridge (South African, film
animation), Rafael Lozano-
Hemmer (Mexican-Canadian,
Large-scale installations),
Teresa Margolles (Mexican,
forensic inspired art), Oscar
Munoz (Colombian

Take Interstate 75 to Exit 213
(University Parkway). Travel west
toward Bay Shore Road, crossing
U.S. 41. Parking is to the right just
before Bay Shore Road in the lot
serving the Florida State University
Center for the Performing Arts. Park
in the northwest area of the lot as
you enter to be close to the muse-
um's Visitor Center building just
beyond the former gates to Ca d'Zan.

Columbia, where the show
debuted last year.
In conjunction with the
exhibition, the Ringling
Museum will host several
companion programs in the
Historic Asolo Theater and
also some educational pro-
grams for children. Such pre-
sentations, when they occur,
are not included in the admis-
sion price. Call the museum to
learn about offerings sched-
uled for the day you plan to
visit.
Make a day of it at the
Ringling. Enjoy lunch at
Treviso, tour Ca d'Zan and
visit the Tibbals Learning
Center to see the miniature
circus created by Howard
Tibbals who donated it and
several million dollars to the
Ringling Museum.
That Sarasota area is consid-
ered by many to be the cultur-
al center of Florida can be
traced to John Ringling's deci-
sion to build his art museum
in Sarasota. That is a whole
other story. For now, enjoy a
day at the Ringling one of
the 20 most valuable art muse-
ums in the United States.
