Property taxes:




It could be worse

Arson at Venice Arena


BY JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

Arsonists are believed to be
responsible for starting a fire
inside the now-vacant Venice
Arena building, 1401 Ringling
Drive, late Monday afternoon.
The Venice Fire Department
responded to a call from an eye-
witness who claimed to see
smoke coming out of the board-
ed-up windows at around 4:30
p.m.
Firefighters were at the scene
within minutes to extinguish the
blaze that started beneath the
bleachers located along the
western wall of the building.
No one was injured during
the incident and structural dam-
age to the facility was minimal.


Fire Marshall Jack Stevenson
said that there appeared to be
evidence of an accelerant a
combustible liquid such as
gasoline at the scene, which
led investigators to point to
arson as the likely cause of the
fire. He said that he also believed
this fire is connected to a string
of arsons that have taken place
over the past week in the area.
Anyone with information
about this incident is asked to
call Venice Police Detective
Howard Dunn at 486-2444. A
reward of up to $2,500 is offered
for information leading to the
identification of people respon-
sible for the fire.

Maybe you've heard that
property taxes in Florida are out
of control.
Statistically speaking, for
most homeowners, that's just
not the case.
In a comparison of the aver-
age annual property tax bill for
occupied homes in each state
nationwide, Florida ranks right
near the middle: 22 out of 50
states, according to 2006 num-
bers from the Tax Foundation, a
nonprofit Washington, D.C.-
based tax research organization.
The average property tax bill
for a home in Florida in 2006 was
$1,703 on a median home value
of $230,600. Compare that to
New Jersey, the state with the
highest average annual property
tax bill at $5,773.
So, why in recent years has
there been so much noise about
unfair property taxes in Florida?
For the most part, it stems
from those who are not protect-
ed by Save Our Homes' 3-per-
cent cap on annual appraised
value increases namely va-
cant land, second homes and

commercial property.
Save Our Homes, instituted in
the '90s, applies to the primary
residence of a homeowner and
limits the assessed value of a
home. When you add in the new
homestead exemption a
$50,000 reduction on the taxable
value of homes worth $75,000 or


more the tax bill shrinks con-
siderably.
In recent years, as property
values skyrocketed, residents
protected by Save Our Homes
and the homestead exemption
didn't feel the effects, while

Money firmly in River Road account


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


After passing each other like
two cars in the night, North Port
and Sarasota County now ap-
pear to be lined up side by
side regarding River Road.
On July 22, the Sarasota
County Commission passed a
resolution dedicating some $7.8
million in impact fees collect-
ed within the city of North Port
as of Jan. 14 to the U.S. 41-
River Road intersection im-
provement project.

tion, city commissioners unani-
Sarasota County and River Road have settled their differences over some mously agreed Monday to con-
funding for the River Road-U.S. 41 intersection, which could allow con- sider a resolution of their own

approving the county's expendi-
ture toward the $12 million
widening project.
"I'm in favor of doing River
Road; always have been," Com-
missioner Barbara Gross said.
"But I think we need to really
make sure that they are serious
about that intersection."
City Engineer Pat Collins told
commissioners he met with
county officials last week and
"there was a firm commitment
from the staff there that it is their
intention to do this improve-
ment."
Clarke Davis, general manag-
er of Sarasota County public
works planning, attended the
Monday meeting and told city
commissioners "our intent is to


make the project whole."
The city's decision negates a
letter Chair Fred Tower III wrote
in June asking county commis-
sioners to dedicate the fees to
Phase 3 of the Sumter Road
widening project.
"Sumter is very important to
us, but so is River Road," Com-
missioner Jim Blucher said.
It depends
The city had asked the county
to dedicate the funds to the
intersection in January but com-
missioners felt that the county
was not acting fast enough.

It has been almost three years
since Vets for Vets sent a $2,509.03
check to Southeastern Guide
Dogs' Paws for Patriots Program.
The check was sent on Nov.
11, 2005, and just last week the
Venice organization, Vets for
Vets, received warming news.
Due to the money raised by
Venice veteran organizations
coming together as Vets for Vets,
Sarge was born to one day
become a guide dog for a blind
veteran who has served in the
Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
In 2005, Vets for Vets formed,
originally to visit Haley Hospital
in Tampa to thank veterans for
their service to the country.
Vets for Vets is composed of
Disabled American Veterans
101, Veterans of Foreign Wars
8118, Marine Corps League Gulf
Coast Unit, Vietnam Brother-
hood American Legion Auxiliary
and Nam Knights MC Club.
Each organization sold raffle
tickets and had separate fund-
raisers to reach their goal.


WANT TO HELP?
Vets for Vets appreciates any
donation to help their cause.
Checks can be mailed to Vets
for Vets at 864 Baveno Drive,
Venice, FL 34285.

The money raised went to-
ward homemade afghans, slip-
pers, cookies and goody bags for
every veteran there.
"That day will always be
remembered," Joan Douglass,
Vets for Vets member, said. "They
were so very happy to see us."
Vote for surplus
After the successful hospital
visit, Vets for Vets voted to donate
the leftover money, $2,500, to
Southeastern Guide Dogs Inc.
At their final meeting, Vets for
Vets collectively agreed on the
name "Sarge" for their spon-
sored puppy. Sarge was born
three years later.
Jim Mowat, chair of Vets for
Vets and a veteran himself, was
mailed a picture of a puppy and
letter of appreciation from


Southeastern Guide Dogs Inc.
last week.
Their sponsored guide-dog-
to-be, Sarge, was inspiration
enough for Mowat to reconnect
Vets for Vets.
"Vets for Vets was a very close-
knit organization," Mowat said. "I
am going to contact them all per-
sonally to tell them our good
news."
Mowat is going to hand deliv-
er copies of Sarge's photo and
the Paws for Patriots' apprecia-
tion letter.
Southeastern Guide Dogs'
Paws for Patriots Program was
formed to provide guide dogs to
blinded soldiers.
Mowat's goal is to regroup
Vets for Vets and raise more
money for Sarge's potential
growth as a guide dog. Raffles,
military breakfasts and dona-
tions could help.
"Too many servicemen from
Iraq are coming back blind,"
Douglass said. "This could be
the difference in changing the
life of an individual who risked
theirs for us."

Archive intern leaves mark on Venice history


FROM THE CITY
OF VENICE

The most interesting
thing about the Venice
Archives and Area Histori-
cal Collection is its variety
of preserved materials,
said Erin Mahaney.
"It has prehistoric fos-
sils and 1920s photos;
manuscripts and artifacts,
all covering a broad spec-
trum," Mahaney said.
Mahaney should know.
As a student in the mas-
ter's degree program in
public history at North
Carolina State University
in Raleigh, she is spending
the summer as an intern at
the Triangle Inn, home of
the Venice Archives.
The Cardinal Mooney
High School graduate
received a bachelor's
degree from New College
in Sarasota as a history
major. This summer, her
work at the archives has
been a hands-on learning
project to serve in lieu of
a master's thesis.
Under the tutelage of
Venice Historic Resources
Director James Hagler,
Mahaney has had the
opportunity to learn about
managing an archive, and
to leave a contribution
that will be useful to the
city of Venice for years to
come.
Since the second week
of May, Mahaney has
worked four days a week
to create a policies and
procedures manual and a
manual for volunteers to
be used at the archives.
She worked with
archives volunteer Janice
Shull to learn about the
facility's street files collec-

tion that is, information
about historic properties
in the Venice area. She also
learned about the daily
activities of running an
archive and the duties of
the various volunteers.
The volunteer manual
she is putting together will
have information that all
new archive volunteers
can use, such as the basics


of operating the computer
system, elements of the
collection and a list of other
community resources of
historical information. She
is using a new computer
program, Past Perfect,
designed to streamline the
duties of volunteers. The
goal is to standardize vol-
unteer activities, making
them more efficient and

helping them provide bet-
ter outreach education in
the community.
"I've learned a lot from
the volunteers," Mahaney
said. "Because the archives
is staffed by volunteers,
everyone who is there
wants to be there. It gives a
very positive feel. There
are great possibilities in a
small institution."
The procedures and
policy manual establishes
standards for the archives,
such as how and when to
lend materials, the selec-
tion criteria, reasons for
accepting or refusing dona-
tions and a process for
the deposit of materials,
Mahaney said.
"One example of why a
donation might not be


accepted is duplication:
the archives already has
the item offered for dona-
tion," Mahaney said.
"One of the things the
archives does well is work-
ing with other area histori-
cal collections, by not
duplicating those collec-
tions," she said.
"It's been a lot of fun
learning about running an
archive," said Mahaney,
who hopes to do that for a
living someday. "Getting
to work with a collection
that is so small but so var-
ied has been very interest-
ing."
Mahaney will return to
North Carolina in August
and take with her things
she learned this summer
that she can put into prac-
tice.
"When I first came to the
archives, I was impressed
with how well things were
preserved and the stan-
dards set for preserva-
tion," Mahaney said. "The
principles I've been taught
in school are that archives
should be user friendly.
They should protect, pre-
serve and make historic
materials available.


"This archive is an
example of that principle.
When you see it applied, it
all comes together."

By Vicki Connell,

ASHA Certified Audiologist
Q. I use two hearing aids
and am about to purchase
a new cell phone. I do not
know which phone I
should buy that will work
best with my hearing
aids. Any suggestions?
A. Cell hones that work
well with hearing aids will
have a microphone (M)
rating of M3 or M4. This
means the cell phone will
work with the hearing aid
in the microphone position.
A higher M number means
the phone will sound
clearer. If you have a
hearing aid telecoil, look
for a phone that has a
telecoil (T) rating of T3 or
T4. A higher T rating will
make your conversations
clearer. Hearing aid
makers will use a similar
rating system to let you
know how well their
hearing aids work in the
microphone or the telecoil
mode. Hearing aids using
the microphone mode will
be rated from Ml to M4. A
higher rating means you
will hear less noise and
have a better connection.
The rating for the telecoil
will be from TI to T4. A
higher rating means you
will be able to hear better
in the telecoil mode. Next,
add up the M or T rating
for the phone and hearing
aid. A rating of 6 is
excellent, a rating of 5 is
good for normal use, a
rating of 4 is usable for
brief calls but not
acceptable for normal use.
Most new hearing aids will
have an M2/T2 rating. Ask
your audiologist at
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance
Centers, Inc. about the
rating of your hearing
aids by call (941) 492-
4327. The rating system
does not apply to cochlear
implants.

those who were not shield-
ed were at the will of the
market.
And those who were
unprotected became
extremely vocal, bringing
the issue to the forefront of
Florida's political discus-
sion in 2007. That senti-
ment carried Amendment
1 to an overwhelming suc-
cess with voters in January.
Trapped
Of course, railing
against taxes is an easy
bandwagon to jump on -
especially when those
taxes come in the form of
one large lump, annual
sum.
"Except for new home-
owners or people that
have had to move or non-
homestead residential or
businesses, no one else
has really been complain-
ing about their taxes," said
Kurt Wenner, director of
tax research with Florida
TaxWatch, a Tallahassee-
based nonpartisan public
policy research group.
"The complaining for
everybody started really
when people started say-
ing there was a tax crisis in
Florida and portraying
that it affected everybody."
As a result, many whose
taxes compare with the
rest of the nation those
with the majority $1,703
average 2006 tax bill -
chimed in against Florida's
property tax system, pass-
ing Amendment 1.
As Florida Rep. Michael
Grant pointed out, this is a
democracy, and what the
people want (and vote
for), they will get. In this
case, Florida voters for
whatever their personal
reasons demanded a
tax break.
Contributing was the
fact that Save Our Homes
left many residents feeling
trapped in their homes -
unable to move without
losing their property tax
exemptions. Exemption
portability in Amendment
1 addressed that issue,
helping it gain voter ap-
proval.
"It was a definite reac-
tion to what I would call
out-of-control tax increas-
es on nonhomesteaded
property," Grant said.
"People voted for (Amend-
ment) 1 because they per-
ceived that the property
tax system was being
unfair to them."
Phantom
Also a possible contrib-
utor to the discussion is
the volume at which citi-
zens are heard in Florida.
With a large number of
retirees, the state also has a
significant population that
is outspoken and active in
local politics.

ifornia. He said the differ-

with that money," Tower
said. "That seems to be our
next big need here."
"Let's be real careful
with that," Commissioner
Vanessa Carusone said.
"We may have Price (Boul-
evard to widen) and who
knows what the future
holds."
Commissioner Dick
Lockhart predicted Sara-
sota County would not act
on widening River Road
north of U.S. 41 for at least
four or five years.

vember, who gets elected,"
he said.

ence in Florida's political
participation is notewor-
thy.
"People are much more
involved in civic matters
here than they were in
California, where it tends
to be a younger popula-
tion where people are
involved in work during
the day," he said. "We are a
lot more involved."
All of this is not to say
there isn't still a problem
with Florida's tax system.
Wenner and Florida Tax-
Watch believe the dispari-
ties caused by Save Our
Homes and homestead
exemptions have created
unfair inequities in Flor-
ida's tax burden.
Grant said though
Amendment 1 was a good
first step, more needs to be
done to protect taxpayers
from market fluctuations.
And Slattery feels that the
general taxpayer revolt is a
statement against a sys-
tem that relies on nontan-
gible financial gains.
"It was really a tax on a
phantom asset," Slattery
said. "Unless you sold your
house during the boom,
you really did not realize
any gain."
Magnet
In an effort to fix
Florida's tax woes, some,
such as Florida Speaker of
the House Marco Rubio,
have suggested eradicat-
ing the property tax sys-
tem in favor of a higher
sales tax.
Already a minimum of 6
percent statewide, sales
tax is another piece of the
tax puzzle. In Florida and
most other states, taxes
and the overall burden on
citizens go well beyond
property.
In fact, beyond just
property taxes, the state
and local tax burden in
Florida in 2007 ranked well
below the middle-ground
- 38th out of 50 states,
according to the Tax Foun-
dation. When the federal
tax burden is included,
Florida's overall ranking
jumps to 12th.
And just dissecting
property taxes from state
to state could be viewed as
a comparison of apples
and oranges. Consider, for
example, that Florida does
not have a state income
tax.
"That is one reason that
O.J. Simpson moved to
Florida; that's why Bill
O'Reilly lives here," Slat-
tery said. "That's why this
state is a magnet for peo-
ple with money."
A point that sums up
Florida's confusing tax sit-
uation in a nutshell: Some
people move here to pay
the taxes, and others con-
sider leaving the state to
avoid them.

Snowbirds bear brunt of property tax


BY NEIL HUGHES
STAFF WRITER


For most Floridians,
annual home property
taxes are on par with the
rest of the country.
But for snowbirds like
Sharon and George Sousa,
property taxes in Florida
come without the protec-
tion of Save Our Homes' 3
percent cap on assessment
increases. As a result, the
Sousas who live and
work most of the year in
Massachusetts help to
pay a disproportionate bur-
den of the tax bill in Florida.
Even as the average
occupied home property
tax bill in the Sunshine
State ranks just 22nd high-
est out of 50 states, that
number is skewed: It does
not represent the smaller
but still significant num-
ber of unprotected second
homes.
Further, those totals do
not include vacant land or
businesses, both of which
also pay a larger propor-
tionate share of Florida's
taxes.
It's frustrating for Shar-
on Sousa, a 61-year-old
professor at the University
of Massachusetts.
"One way or another
you're going to pay," Sousa
said from her home in
Taunton, Mass. "But from
a snowbird point of view, I
think it's made it difficult."
The Sousas' 1,500-
square-foot Southwest
Florida home carries an

annual tax bill of more
than $3,000 well more
than their home in Massa-
chusetts. The sales tax is
higher in Florida as well,
Sousa said.
She and her husband
currently live in their
Florida home just more
than two months out of
the year. They hope to
retire and become year-
round residents in the next
four years.
But since they bought
their retirement home,
they've found their Florida
property taxes have be-
come an unexpectedly
large burden.
"Taxes are getting pretty
hard, and we're finding
ourselves working dou-
ble," she said.
Amendment 1, property
tax reform passed by voters
in January, has helped it
put a 10-percent annual
property value increase cap
in place for some. But with
property values currently
declining, the cap has no
real effect.
Florida Rep. Michael
Grant, R-Dictrict 71, said


he would prefer a 5-per-
cent cap, which could be
in place if voters approve
Amendment 5 this fall.
Regardless, he said more
needs to be done that will,
over time, address the dis-
parities in Florida's prop-
erty tax system.
"I think that we are tak-
ing steps in the state of
Florida to try to protect
those individuals by limit-
ing the increases in assess-
ments that can be charged
on them, which in the long
run will make our system
fairer," Grant said.
That greater share of
the tax burden still carried
by snowbirds, businesses
and investors has become
a sticking point for Florida
TaxWatch, a Tallahassee-
based nonpartisan public
policy research group.
"We have two different
systems of property taxes:
one for Save Our Homes
protected homesteaded
properties, and one for
those who are not," said
Robert Weissert, research
analyst with Florida Tax-
Watch. "The ones who are


I not really get the short end
of the stick. They really
bear a disproportionate
burden of the taxes."
Florida's property tax
divisions can essentially
be broken down into


thirds.
One-third are primary
residents, protected by
Save Our Homes and ben-
eficiaries of a homestead
exemption that reduces
the taxable value of a
home by as much as
$50,000.
Another third includes
second homes, vacant
properties and rentals,
now covered by a 10-per-
cent annual taxable valua-
tion increase cap, thanks
to Amendment l's passage
in January.
And the last group is
commercial properties,
beneficiaries of the 10-
percent cap as well as a
$25,000 valuation exemp-
tion due to Amendment 1.
Most of the benefit of
Amendment 1 80 per-
cent was felt by those
who were already protect-
ed by Save Our Homes,
according to Kurt Wenner,
director of tax research for
Florida TaxWatch.
Sousa said she hopes
more is done to help
snowbirds such as herself,
because, in her eyes, the
current system is broken.
"I think," she said, "it
discourages people from
investing in Florida."

OUR VIEW


Change can be good when it's necessary


L et's say you hire an architect to
draw plans for your house. You
give him some general idea of
what you're hoping for, then turn him
loose to use his talent and experience to
come up with a design that matches the
image in your head.
Finally, he brings you the plans and,
frankly, you're disappointed. They're
not bad, and they meet the applicable
codes and standards, but they just don't
look like what you expected.
Do you:
A) Sit down with the architect and
explain what you like and what you
don't and give him an opportunity to
revise the plans to your liking, or
B) Convey your displeasure indirect-
ly and, when the architect doesn't make
the first move to fix things, hire another
one to do the job?
If "you" are the Venice City Council,
and your "architect" is airport consul-
tant MEA Group, your answer is "B."
And that bothers us.
Now, we have no allegiance to MEA.
Our goal is the same as council's: to get
an acceptable airport master plan
update and airport layout plan approv-
ed and to the Federal Aviation Admin-
istration as quickly and cheaply as pos-


sible. We just find it hard to believe MEA
hasn't been given a chance to do that.
A bit of history: MEA (now Hanson)
prepared an update and a layout plan
for the city on the FAAs dime about
$350,000. Both the prior council and the
current one had issues with the docu-
ments and rejected them.
But it appears no one communicated
to MEA what the problems with the
plans were. At least that's what Lisa
Waters of the firm said at last Tuesday's
council meeting, and it was essentially
confirmed in a press conference on
Thursday by Mayor Ed Martin and
soon-to-be Interim City Manager
Nancy Woodley.
MEA, they said, should have known
from newspaper accounts and other
sources that its work wasn't acceptable
and come to council to ask what need-
ed to be done to make it right.
The firm surely did know there were
issues and should have been more
proactive. We think, though, that there
was also a duty on the city's part to bring
MEA back, list the issues and ask that
they be addressed. That never hap-
pened, and the city is now advertising
for a new consultant who will use
MEA's work as a jumping-off point.


Council members are individually
reviewing the plans in order to meet
with the new consultant and define the
work that needs to be done. What, then,
was the basis for rejecting the plans in
the first place? And why, if the city is try-
ing not to reinvent the wheel, isn't the
original consultant being brought back
to do its work right, within the terms of
its original contract?
If that could be done, we think the
city would save a lot of time and money.
The estimated cost of having a new con-
sultant do the work is $450,000, though
that would be for starting from scratch,
which council finally made clear only
last week was not its desire.
The complaints about MEA seem to
be that its work adhered too closely to the
FAA's requirements and didn't adequately
present options to protect the golf course
and Gulf Shores, and that MEA personnel
were arrogant and unresponsive.
The first shortcoming is understand-
able the FAA was paying the bill, and
MEA works with the agency all the time.
But the city is the client, and the client is
in charge.
Woodley charitably chalked up some
of the problems between council and
MEA to miscommunication, at least part


of which was council's failure to give the
firm clear direction. Council members
are belatedly doing their homework to fix
that.
The second shortcoming should be
easy to deal with. MEA hasn't been fully
paid, and we have to think the airport
planning business has been hit at least
as hard by the recession as any other
business. Plus, the firm's reputation is
on the line. Council members won't
have any problems being heard now.
Waters said at last week's council
meeting that her firm still wants to work
with the city but just hasn't been given
the chance. While it's true, as Council
Member Sue Lang said, that MEA can
compete with other potential consul-
tants to do the work under a new
contract, presumably it seems to us
that council could meet with MEA now
and find out whether the firm can make
the desired changes as part of its origi-
nal contract.
That would advance the process by
weeks, if not months, and keep city tax-
payers from spending a dime that does-
n't need to be spent. If it can't be worked
out, bring in someone new; the process
to find that firm is already in motion.
What do we have to lose?

Sometimes nostalgia
lane is a fun place to go.
With the economy in a
state of chaos, it seemed
like a good escape to at-
tend my high school re-
union in Urbana, Ill. It was
good therapy.
It was only about eight
weeks ago that I was in
Illinois and found the
fields had been deluged
with 9 inches of rain (the
Iowa floods). Last weekend
as I drove down Route 150
through Farmer City and
Leroy and some of the
other farm communities,
it was amazing that the
corn in some cases was 10
feet high. While that is not
true with those fields that
were replanted, it looks
like they will make it to
harvest
The class of '62 was a
class of 245, of which
about 30 percent returned.
Strangely, it was our 46th
anniversary. We had our
38th reunion in 2000 to see
what the turn of the centu-
ry did to one another. Last
Friday we just had social
time over a few brews. It
was great reminiscing and
finding out what people
were doing and sharing
some good stories.
The biggest group of
people went into farming,
either there in Urbana or
in St. Joe, Mahomet or
some other small commu-
nities around. It was fasci-
nating talking to them
about the business.
The cost to produce
corn was about $235 per
acre last year and about
$100 more this year. Next
year it is predicted the cost
will be more than $500.
This in part is because
of doubled fertilizer and
pesticide costs and, of
course, gasoline prices.
While that would normally
be catastrophic, the bushel
price has gone from
around $2 just more than a
year ago to $5 now.
They said the ethanol
craze seems to be slowing
down; maybe the cost of
corn is driving them out of
business. A couple of pro-


posed plants have been
put on hold or companies
just bailed out. Maybe
someone is using com-
mon sense on this one.
The lady that chaired
the gathering had collect-
ed all of the class photos of
all of the elementary
schools. I was pretty cute
in first grade (even my
mother said so). Not sure
what happened.
It was not a huge sur-
prise to see that, other
than those residing in Illi-
nois, the most grads live in
Florida, several in Sarasota
County and one in Venice.
There was also a western
contingent, from Arizona
and California.
I found that most of the
people were retired, many
for years. The ones that
seemed to not be retired
were the attorneys, the
farmers and a few other
professionals.
We had no one particu-
larly famous in our class,
although some pretty tal-
ented folks. One swindled
money from lots of people
in central Illinois and now
has all of his money in
Switzerland. Another is a
nuclear physicist, one is
head of a department at
Indiana University. Some
are engineers and some
are in business. It seemed
strange that a lot of people
were involved in race cars,
from dirt track to NASCAR.
I didn't know I was re-
turning to a bunch of old
people. What happened to
those young people I grew
up with?
It was a great group and
a lot of fun.


By's Crack: I'll say
one thing for the years
gone by: Life was a lot
simpler when the op-
posite sexwasn't a mul-
tiple choice.


I don't know if I threw
the county commissioners
under the bus over the Red
Sox stadium, but I at least
kicked them off the curb.
There has been a lot of
work toward a stadium
and much of that has been
led by the Sarasota city
manager and county staff.
Many of the funding rec-
ommendations have come
from city sources; the
county really has not offi-
cially weighed in.
Commissioners have by
and large embraced the
concept but the funding

Many Golden Beachers love the airport


Editor:
I have been a resident of Golden Beach for eight years.
I love living here and I find that most of the neighbors do
too.
There are more than 300 homes here. We are a com-
munity of down-to-earth, real people, and we take great
pride in our neighborhood. We live here because we
chose to.
Most of us do love the airport and many of us are
pilots and aircraft owners. The Venice airport is the rea-
son that we purchased our home in Golden Beach.
There are only a few people who are complaining;
unfortunately, all GB residents have received a black eye
because of their unreasonable anti-aviation views.
I think that all of the GB homeowners were aware of
the airport's existence when they purchased their home.
It would be OK with most GB residents if the complain-
ers would relocate to a neighborhood that is a better fit
for their personality.
Please know that the GB neighborhood is a very quiet,
peaceful and lovely place.

Speaking out
is patriotic act
Editor:
I understand that there
are some Americans who
may still be pondering the
sense or senselessness of
past wars, trying to find
reason and justification for
the millions of lives lost.
However, it is now
known and widely publi-
cized that this Iraq war
was based upon deception
and lies. Many people,
including our Congress
and other world leaders,
believed Mr. Bush and his
cabinet members, and
trusted our intimations
that Iraq was an imminent


threat to America and the
rest of the world during
which, Osama bin Laden
and his followers from
Saudia Arabia and al-
Qaida were actually plan-
ning attacks on our home-
land.
The lies of the Gulf of
Tonkin incident also dup-
ed us into launching an
unwarranted retaliatory
attack, on North Vietnam,
which led to the loss of
58,000 American lives and
untold millions of others.
Americans who speak
out against the senseless-
ness of wrongful wars, and
the needless loss of hu-
man life, are not traitors,


but Americans, acting like
Americans performing
their rightful duty. Now
more than 70 percent of
Americans are opposed to
this Iraq war, and believe it
was unnecessary.

There was a large, red
setter lying in the ditch in

lar. Afraid it was sick or
injured, I phoned them.
They were at my home in
15 minutes.
But the nicest thing was
that they returned to let us
know they had found the
dog's owner.
I just wanted to thank
them for taking the time to
let us know everything
turned out so well.

A 'tail' about
democracy
Editor:
The one-third of Ven-
ice's voters who seem to sup-
port irresponsible growth
seem also to be working
themselves into a frenzy.
What seems to be igniting


their flaming aggravation
is that city council is sim-
ply paying attention to the
wishes of a thoroughly
convincing majority of
Venice's voters.
After having had their
way for so long, special
commercial interests are
reluctant to acknowledge
the transformative politi-
cal change that is taking
place in Venice and, un-
derstandably, they now
retreat to the security of
agreements made more
than half a century ago,
before the dawn of com-
mercial jet travel agree-
ments that made far more
sense then than they do
now.
They would have us
bound by antique agree-
ments that did not con-
template today's reality.
One thing that all of us
might well remember is
that when the tail wags the
dog, democracy is in deep
difficulty.

Venice City Council working on five priorities


Interim City Manager
Nancy Woodley and I met
with a leadership team of
city employees July 24 to
exchange information and


organize priorities for the
city, as Woodley makes the
transition to her new
duties.
Five priority areas were
identified for current em-
phasis: the completion of
the comprehensive plan
update, the development
of the new budget, the
completion of planning
for the airport, completion
of negotiations with the
employee union, AFSCME,
and the hiring of a new
city manager.
The city council com-
pleted its detailed study of
the massive comprehen-
sive plan, and the process


is now in the hands of the
planning staff and the
city's consultants. After
they include the council's
suggested changes, the
plan will be available for
review by the city's ap-
pointed committees and
the public. Their input will
be considered by council
prior to final approval in
public meetings.
Department directors
will be presenting their
budget requests to the
council in upcoming
workshops. The range of
funds available for next
year, depending on the
millage rate to be ap-


proved by council, would
be about $2 million less
than the current year at
the low end, and about
$100,000 more at the top
of the millage range. The
public will have the chance
to discuss the items which
might be added or removed
in relation to the level of
millage adopted.
Council members have
copies of the airport mas-
ter plan update prepared
last year by a consulting
firm. The plan was not
approved by the past or
current council.
Each council member
is being asked to review


the plan indicating chang-
es that should be made, as
well as parts that are
acceptable. Staff will collate
these comments for coun-
cil consideration. They
should provide a basis for
working with the consul-
tant the city is seeking to
hire. This will hopefully
limit the new consultant's
scope of work.
Preparation for negoti-
ations with the union is
under way. Administrative
Services Director Alan
Bullock is the lead on this
project. Details are not
available at this time. The
city does not anticipate


having to lay off more
workers, but will leave
some vacancies unfilled
under proposed budget
levels.
A request for qualifica-
tions has been drafted for
search firms to assist in the
process of identifying can-
didates for city manager. It
should be released soon.
I want to assist Wood-
ley, and the potential new
city manager, by becom-
ing as familiar as possible
with the issues, and by
understanding how staff
views them. I also want to

Let's put that hospital money to use


A thought. I was just reading the article about North
Port needing a hospital. From what I understand, the
population of North Port is greater than Sarasota and
Sarasota has several hospitals. So, North Port should
have a hospital. Why can't Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice, which received all the money
from the sale of Venice Hospital, be the one to start it?
There's the money, and it came from a hospital. Let's use
that money to build a hospital in North Port. Just a
thought. Hope it goes some place.


Asleep. Wow! The Ven-
ice Police Department is
really on the ball now. They
caught someone sleeping
in a park overnight. You
know, maybe he was sleep-
ing down there when peo-
ple were breaking into all
the businesses. Goodness.
Good job.


Slanted. Do these road
builders down here in
Florida ever consider put-
ting a slight slant on the
roadway when they build
it, so the water will run to
the edges of the road in-
stead of sitting there mak-
ing a puddle that we can-
not drive through? And
also cutting the berm low-
er than the road it will
all wash away. Hey, where's
the engineers?

for their efforts.
Woodley and I agreed
the meeting was very pro-
ductive. It was a chance to
learn and to exchange
views. Similar meetings are


expected, perhaps every
two weeks. Woodley and I
also met with representa-
tives of the area's media
later in the day to discuss
the priority areas. Periodic
meetings are anticipated.
City Attorney Bob An-

OBITUARIES


Woman caught
stealing over $600
worth of Benadryl
Security cameras at
Radiology Associates of
Venice and Englewood
recorded janitor Lisa
Eaton as she stole more
than 30 vials of Benadryl,
according to a Venice
Police Department report.
The drugs, worth more
than $600, were taken
from emergency kits
throughout the office.
Police said that staff was
unaware of the thefts until
supplies were needed in
an emergency.
Upon arrest, Eaton
admitted to stealing the
Benadryl, according to the
report. She is currently
being held in the South
County Jail pending a
$2,500 bond.

Driver in
critical condition
Florida Highway Patrol
reported on Sunday that a
single-car crash occurred
on the eastbound lane of
State Road 681 about 1
mile west of 1-75 in
Sarasota County.
The driver, 29-year-old
Griselda Duron, was eject-
ed from her car after losing
control of it and flipping
over, a result of over-com-
pensating when her vehi-
cle began drifting onto the
grass median separating
eastbound and west-
bound lanes. Duron was

CRIME SCENE



There is a confidence
game dubbed by law
enforcement the Sweet-
heart or Marriage Swindle.
I handled a number of
these cases while with the
NYPD.
I was recently contacted
by a woman who felt she
might be a victim. After lis-
tening to her concerns, I
advised her to report the sit-
uation to law enforcement
because the modus operan-
di sounded very familiar to
me and she had given her
suitor quite a bit of money
over a period of time based
on what appeared to be
false pretenses.
This is how the scam
works.
The con artist strikes up
an acquaintance with the
intended victim. This could
occur at various locations,
but in most cases it is a
social setting.
The information given
to the victim portrays the
con artist as a very impres-
sive and successful person
with an almost unbeliev-
able resume that seems
too good to be true.
Over a period of time a
relationship usually ensues.
In this time frame the con
artist behaves in ways that
gain the victim's trust and
affection. Marriage may be
discussed or in some cases
actually occur.
(In one of my cases I
arrested an individual who
was married four times,
fathered a number of chil-
dren and had stolen more
than a $1 million from a
number of individuals. He
was also leading a double
and sometimes triple life
with two or three other
victims in various loca-
tions at the same time. He
covered his absences by
stating he had to go away
on business trips.)
When the con artist
feels the victim is ripe for
the picking he or she
makes a pitch for money. A
story is told about the need


not wearing a seat belt at
the time.
She is currently listed in
critical condition at
Bayfront Medical Center.

Arrested on drug
trafficking charge
Venice Police arrested a
41-year-old Venice man
Monday following a tip
given to police reporting
that he was selling pre-
scription medicine from
his residence.
Stephen M. Frye was
arrested at home on July
26, after a search of his
apartment revealed him to
be in possession of 31
grams of crushed, white
powder that detectives
identified positively as an
opiate.
Frye is currently being
held without bond, charged
with one count of traffick-
ing of a controlled sub-
stance.

Venice Police
Department arrests
Shawna Tara Smith,
44, 800 block the
Esplanade, Venice. Charge:
battery, obstructing or
opposing an officer with-
out violence. Bond: $2,250.

investment, seed money to
start a business, medical
bills or any other reason
the victim will accept. The
victim is assured that the
money will be paid back
with lucrative interest in a
reasonable period of time.
By this time the scam
artist may have even moved
into the victim's home and
secured access to bank
accounts, credit cards,
investments, monthly pay-
ments and other resources.
After the victim's finances
have been depleted, the
perpetrator skips town and
moves on to another loca-
tion to begin the con all over
again on someone else.
When apprehended, the
crook usually claims to
have been in a relation-
ship and that the monies
were gifts given voluntari-
ly, hoping that defense will
preclude prosecution.
This con is successful
because victims initially
refuse to believe that the
person they are involved
with does not care for
them or have their best
interests at heart. When
they finally accept the
truth, it is usually too late.
Here are two extreme
cases:
In Greensboro, N.C.,
James Anthony Savage
was arrested by the FBI for
defrauding several women
out of more than $7 mil-
lion. He was convicted on
32 counts of conspiracy,
mail fraud, wire fraud and
money laundering.
In Tampa, Robert W
Best, a convicted felon, was
arrested for swindling a
woman living in North
Carolina out of more than
$1 million. She was living on
a large financial settlement
from a botched eye opera-
tion. After developing a
romantic relationship, he
told the woman he could
secure their financial future
for a large investment in
Best International Invest-
ments Inc. Records show
that Best had been married
twice before, once for nine
months and another time
for three years.
Be careful when meet-
ing new people and be
especially alert should your
friend request money from
you for any of the reasons
listed above. Never give any-
one access to your finances
unless you can trust him or
her implicitly. Report sus-
picions to family members

MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


The first 30

How about a challenge?
In my opinion, most of
you are missing out on one
of Venice's greatest assets:
walking the beach the first
half hour of the morning. I
promise you if you do it
once, you'll do it again.
You'll probably be the only
one within eyesight.
You will be the first one
to frighten the ghost crabs
back into their burrows.
Watch closely, you may
also see them dragging a
sand flea into their hole. As
you walk, keep glancing
out into the shallow water
and you probably will see
the snook chasing the bait.
Talk about a tranquil
occurrence. Every once in
a while you'll see a pod of
dolphin looking for break-
fast. Occasionally, I've seen
a manatee. The best part
about this early morning
walk is how quiet it is. No
screaming children or loud
wave runners.
If daybreak is too early
for you, then try this expe-
rience the last half hour.
There will be more people
on the beach than the
early morning. You'll be
able to see the beautiful
sunset.
Both of these parts of
our day are great times to
fish on the beach.
Sometimes the mackerel,
ladyfish and jacks come
almost up on the beach
chasing their prey. Say
hello, if you see me out
there.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to
say goodbye until next
week.

Mr Sheepshead is
Dave Hack. Contact him

Dick Vitale was among the
supporters of bringing the
Boston Red Sox to
Sarasota for spring train-
ing at a Citizens For Sox
rally Tuesday.

BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

Support and optimism still
abound for bringing the Boston
Red Sox to Sarasota for spring
training, even after the plan to
build a new ballpark facility at the
current site of the fairgrounds
seems to be all but dead.
Sarasota County commission-
ers rejected a three-way land
swap that involved moving the
fairgrounds from Fruitville Road
to Twin Lakes Park last week. That
move would have opened up a 98-
acre chunk of land for a ballpark
near downtown Sarasota.
But that didn't discourage
some of the area's most promi-
nent figures from expressing their
support at a public Citizens For
Sox rally at the Hyatt Regency
Sarasota Tuesday night.
"I would say it's an M&Mer, a
total mismatch. An N.C. no
contest," said ESPN college bas-
ketball analyst Dick Vitale, who
resides in Sarasota. "To me, the
only logical decision is to bring the
Boston Red Sox to the best place in
the land, Sarasota, Florida."
According to the recently
released Economic Impact Report,
Ed Smith Stadium & Sports

speaker at the Citizens For Sox rally
at the Hyatt Regency Sarasota
Tuesday. Vitale said you didn't "have
to go to Harvard to figure out this is
a no-brainer."

Complex generates an estimated
$24.5 million in economic output
with the Cincinnati Reds as its
spring training tenant. When the
Cincinnati Reds leave in 2010 for
Arizona, the complex will generate
an estimated $5.5 million. A new
baseball complex with the Boston
Red Sox as the spring training ten-
ant would generate an estimated
$46.5 million.

presented by Conventions, Sports
& Leisure, is available in its entire-
ty on the Web at www.citizens

Sarasota Mayor Lou Ann Palmer
expressed her support of bringing
the Boston Red Sox to Sarasota.

In addition to the economic
benefits outlined in the report,
many of the speakers at the rally
cited the publicity factor of having
the Red Sox in Sarasota. County
Commissioner Joe Barbetta said
the Red Sox could bring high-
tech, high-income jobs to Sara-
sota just by getting the attention
of businesses in New England.
"It's not just about baseball, not
just about bringing the players
here for that period of time. But
what other opportunities exist?"
Barbetta asked. "We know our
hotels welcome spring training.
They say they love having baseball
here ... The economic vibrancy of
the whole community will cer-
tainly get brighter if we land the
Red Sox. We're going to do our
best."
In fact, Sarasota Mayor Lou
Ann Palmer said that the city has
received endorsements for bring-
ing the Red Sox to town from the
Chamber of Commerce, Coalition
of Business Association, Argus
Foundation, Sarasota Association


of Realtors, Sarasota/Manatee
Hotel Sales Committee, Sarasota
Convention and Visitors Bureau
and many local neighborhood
associations.
"I'm not putting down the
Cincinnati Reds in any way, shape
or form, but we all know what the
Boston Red Sox mean to
Sarasota," Palmer said.
Since Sarasota lost the Reds,
already Ed Smith Complex has
lost the FHSAA Baseball Finals.
Jason Puckett, sports marketing
coordinator for the Sarasota
Convention and Visitors Bureau,
suspects Ed Smith and Sarasota
will also lose the AAU Baseball
national championship tourna-
ment in the coming years due to
uncertainty surrounding the facil-
ity's future upkeep without a
spring training and minor league
baseball tenant. With the Red Sox
in town, Puckett says Sarasota
could easily get those events,
which pump tourist dollars into
the local economy, back.
The fairgrounds may no longer
be an option, but the plan to get
the Red Sox is still in motion
thanks to support from those
groups as well as the Citizens For
Sox. According to their Web site,
Citizens For Sox is a grass-roots
organization committed to bring
"clear and accurate information
to the residents and taxpayers of
Sarasota and surrounding com-
munities about the positive
potential impact of relocation of
the Boston Red Sox to Sarasota for
spring training."

The Red Sox




Nation is




already here


Walking into the ball-
room donated by the
Hyatt Regency Sarasota for
the Citizens For Sox rally
felt an awful lot like base-
ball. I've never been to a
game at Fenway Park, but I
imagine it's kind of like
this.
The first thing I noticed
was the popcorn smell.
Not exactly peanuts and
Cracker Jacks, but close
enough.
Then came the voices.
Boston accents this thick
would normally make my
skin crawl, but this is all
part of the Fenway experi-
ence.
Then the colors. Every-
one wearing a red T-shirt
and a Boston cap, unlike
the SEC gear that floods
my home Turner Field.
We're all on the same
team here.
Then came the excite-
ment. There was a real
feeling of anticipation for
bringing the Red Sox to
town, like the anticipation
that comes before the first
pitch.
They were expecting
400 people for the event.
They fell a bit short, but
the enthusiasm was tangi-
ble. Twice, Yankee fans,
including Sarasota resi-
dent and international
sports icon Dick Vitale,
took the podium in sup-
port of the Red Sox. That's
called bringing a commu-
nity together.
Naysayers have said
Sarasota will fare just fine
without spring training,
but how would they know?
There are plenty of old
folks here, but not many
who can remember the
last time Sarasota had no
spring training 84 years
ago. Still fewer actually


TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

lived here back then.
Even if the economic
impact doesn't live up to
the estimates in the
Economic Impact Report,
who could say no to even
half of $46.5 million into
the local economy?
Dick Vitale may be
crazy, but he's right.
"I'm not the most intel-
lectual guy I know, I can't
even spell the word
Harvard to go to Harvard,
but I don't think you have
to go to Harvard to figure
out this is a no-brainer,
an absolute no-brainer,"
he said. "To bring the Red
Sox to this city and to feel
the incredible boom eco-
nomically, also public
relations-wise on the
news every night nation-
ally on ESPN when every-
body's talking about the
Red Sox and Sarasota,
Florida, I cannot see why
anyone could possibly
see why this could be a
negative."
I went to the University
of Florida, the Princeton
Review's No. 1 party
school, where they say stu-
dents study the least, and
even I can tell that this is a
can't-miss opportunity.

Board's stormwater


debate to resume soon


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

The stormwater mitiga-
tion debate continued
during a meeting of the
Community Redevelop-
ment Area's advisory
board at Lemon Bay Park.
The board decided to
delay voting until August
on endorsing a grant pro-
gram by board member
Todd Tracy over planned
stormwater vaults for
Dearborn Street.
By then, the board
hopes the overall financial
picture might be clearer to
make a better decision on
vaults versus grants.
"I think (the board will)
come around (to my
plan)," Tracy said after the
meeting. "In these chang-
ing times, the responsible
thing to do is change. And
the grant program solves a
lot of problems."
Among the largest of
those problems, Tracy
said, was finding $6 mil-
lion in the stressed eco-
nomic climate to build the
vault system.
"I think it's inevitable
my plan will prevail,
because the dollars simply
aren't there right now (to
fund the vaults)," Tracy
said.
Tracy's plan would allow
the private sector to pur-
sue and purchase less-
expensive systems through
low-impact development
solutions such as green
roofs, permeable parking
lots and cisterns.
Low-impact develop-
ment encompasses storm-
water management con-
tained mostly within a sin-
gle site. The vaulting sys-
tem proposed beneath
Dearborn Street, by con-
trast, would have storm-
water traveling to another
location.
"I want you as an end-
use consumer to be free to
choose whatever storm-
water (mitigation) you
want," Tracy said. "It gets
us out of the loop. We don't
have to borrow money. We
don't have anything to
maintain. All we have is a
small paper trail we've


established for the granti-
ng program."
Tracy's program would
include an endowment
based on square footage of
a property owner's lot. The
amount would be deter-
mined through public
input.
His own grant estimate
was based on the 10.36
acres of land he believed
had the best chance of
being developed in Engle-
wood over the next six
years within the proposed
mitigation area. At his esti-
mate of $2.24 per square
foot, the total awards
would cost the CRA a little
more than $1 million.
Sitting there
Tracy's plan challenged
the 21.5 acres of Engle-
wood property projected
to be served by the vaults.
He conceded that while
many of those acres might
be somewhat improved,
they would not actually
require stormwater miti-
gation.
Tracy failed to win over
board members Harry
Colbum and John Davison.
Colburn said that $378,217
has already been spent for
the vault system design
with the backing of the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District, the


*1r] jQ'JM


body responsible for
allowing permitting for
stormwater-mitigation sys-
tems. Low-impact develop-
ment, he added, has yet to
receive Swiftmud endorse-
ment.
Davison sided with
Colburn.
"We've already spent a
lot of money on the vault
system," Davison said.
"Some experts think that's
the way to go and I'm try-
ing to listen to the
experts."
Tracy said that the $5
million in estimated sav-
ings could go to more wor-
thy CRA projects.
"We have some side-
walk issues. We have lots of
waterfront park land that's
just sitting there (needing
improvement). We could
kick in for the performing
arts center as they look to
raise money," Tracy said.
"There's lots of things we
can do to stimulate down-
town other than mitigating
stormwater for $6 million."

Englewood Loop route in danger


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


It looks like the end of the line for the
Englewood Loop.
According to Anthony Beckford, general
manager of Sarasota County Area Transit,
the infrequently used Route 21 which
serves Englewood Community Hospital,
Dearborn Street, Kiwanis Park and the
Englewood Sports Complex will proba-
bly face the chopping block in October.
"I can't eliminate a (bus) route without
(Sarasota County Commission) ap-
proval," Beckford said. "But it has a strong
possibility to be eliminated, because it's
not doing very well."
Beckford said that despite efforts to
improve the route, such as offering reser-
vation-oriented "flex" service, ridership
has not gone up. In fact, he said, it has


actually gone down to the tune of only
four total riders per trip.
"That's resources that can be put to
better uses," Beckford said. "So rather
than wasting money on a service that's
not being utilized, we'd like to reallocate
those resources to something else."
Those resources amount to almost
$200,000 a year, he added.
Anyone interested in learning what
steps SCAT will take to consolidate its
Englewood area service including
alternate routes to the Englewood Loop
- can contact Sarah Blanchard, SCAT
planning manager, at (941) 650-2284 or
via e-mail at sblancha@scgov.net.
"We're looking to enhance service on
Route 16," Beckford said. "It will pick up
some of the slack, though it won't pick up
everything."

LYMPHEDEMA:
KNOW THE SYMPTOMS.
SEEK TREATMENT FROM THE EXPERTS.

Lymphedema, often noticed as a
swelling in the arms or legs, can worsen
over time if left untreated. It's crucial
to recognize the symptoms of the
disease early and to seek help from a
specially trained medical professional.
Causes of Lymphedema
Lymphedema is the accumula-
tion of protein rich fluid in the soft
tissue that causes swelling, most often
in the arms or legs, and occasionally
in other parts of the body. It develops
when lymphatic vessels are missing or
impaired (primary lymphedema), or
when lymph vessels are damaged or
removed (secondary lymphedema).
Secondary lymphedema can
develop as a result of trauma, infec-
tion, radiation, or surgery. Specific
surgeries, such as a radical mastectomy
or lumpectomy with lymph node
removal, put patients at risk for devel-
oping secondary lymphedema.
Symptoms of Lymphedema
Signs or symptoms of lymphedema
include swelling, a sensation of heavi-
ness or skin tightness, muscle fatigue in
the affected limb, and decreased move-
ment of the hand, wrist, or ankle due
to swelling of the affected limb.
The symptoms of swelling and
redness, warmth, increased discom-
fort, fever, or rash may indicate an
infection and require immediate
evaluation by a physician.
Effective Treatment
Complete decongestive physio-
therapy (CDP) is the most effective
treatment option available for lym-
phedema. The treatment is divided
into two phases.
In Phase I, the CDP therapist
teaches the patient to perform self-
manual lymph drainage, to apply a
compression bandage correctly, to
perform condition specific exercises,
and to apply basic skin care and pre-
vention principles.
In Phase II, the patient optimizes
the fluid reduction by performing
self-manual lymph drainage, wearing
a compression sleeve during the day,
bandaging the affected area at night
and exercising 15 minutes a day while
wearing the bandages.
Venice Regional Medical Center's
rehabilitation services therapists are
specially trained and certified in CDP
Their skill and dedication have led to
many excellent patient outcomes.
For more information about
lymphedema or CDP, call Venice
Regional Rehabilitation at HealthPark,
(941) 486-6420, and ask to speak
with a certified CDP therapist.

BY BROOKY BROWN

She's visually beautiful, smells
incredible and when you hold
her in your hands you feel the
delicacy of creation and
then you taste her.
"Her name is Rosemary.
Would you like to sit beside
her?" Emma Wilson asks her
Scamotz customers, espe-
cially single young males.
Bill and Emma Wilson
purchase their organic
herbs at the Venice
Farmer's Market from Russ
Esposito of Blooming Grove
Nursery.
From there the herbs are
transplanted into clay pots where
they reside in the restaurant's court-
yard, yielding cutting after cutting to fla-
vor the pizza pies and other cuisine
served at Scamotz. The courtyard is
landscaped with garlic chives, onion


chives, sweet basil, thyme, oregano and
parsley.
"Herbs come from the feminine spir-
it," Emma said. "It is Mother Earth giv-
ing back the beauty of who she is."
Emma believes it is an honor to use
herbs in cooking. They also add the
"Wow" factor to whatever food
they season.
"When people ask for a
white pie we go outside and
harvest fresh basil and top
it with fresh tomatoes," she
said.
At the end of each work
day, by 10 p.m. to be exact,
Emma places her produce
order for 20 pounds of "the
most succulent" tomatoes.
"If they aren't the most suc-
culent ones when they arrive,
they go back," she said.
The process of layering
Bill is a bit of a cook himself, and he
thinks layering is what cooking is all


about.
"If you're cooking a steak, first you
bring it to room temperature,
then you add salt, etc.
That's layering,"
he said.
"Emma's
dressings
are lay- A
ered as is
the mari- .
nara
sauce." ,
All fresh
herbs '
should be
added the last :
minutes of cooking
time, Bill said, except one.
"Fresh bay leaf goes in whole at the
beginning and is removed after 20 min-
utes."
"It's the dance of the oil and herb in
cooking that brings the dish to life,"
Emma said.
It takes Bill and Emma all day to pre-


pare for the evening restaurant crowd.
Making cooking fun
Fininmmi, who home schooled
lit-. I hur children, said one of
t lit "fun-est" things to do
when making pizza at
home is to involve the
children.
"They can put any-
thing on the pizza
/they want," she said.
One of Emma's
sons learned to bake
bread at age 11. From
ilib re he went to culinary
di n1 and served as an
uxuCuiv u chef in Rhinebeck,
N.Y., with 100 people working under
him.
"Currently, he's in the South of France
serving as a private chef aboard a
yacht," she said.
Emma is an early riser. At 5:30 each

Pariano solves the herbal puzzle


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR


SUN PHOTOS BY BROOKY BROWN
Antonio Pariano, an owner and chef
at Cassariano Italian Eatery, holds
a sprig of fresh dried rosemary that
was shipped to his restaurant from
California.


IF YOU'VE EVER WONDERED
what herbs to use with which
foods, Antonio Pariano,
chef and one of the
owners of Cassariano
Italian Eatery on
Venice Avenue, can
solve the mystery.
"Every woman in Italy
has little herb plants in her
home," he said. "But here, we
use fresh dried herbs because
it's faster. They still have the


natural oil that gives them their
flavor."
The herbs are shipped to
Pariano every two days from
California. From these he
chooses just the right
ones to flavor his
dishes.
Pariano
said it's
important
to use herbs
that compliment the
foods you're preparing. He
suggests using these herbs with
the following foods:


Red meats use stronger
herbs like rosemary and thyme.
For each steak, break up a little
piece of rosemary, Pariano said.
*Veal and chicken these
are mild meats so sage is good
with them.
Fish also is mild -
use basil, parsley
and oregano with
fish. Parsley does-
n't work with red
meat, Pariano said.
Lamb use mint
with lamb.
Tomato sauce use sweet


Antonio Pariano uses fresh dried
mint with lamb dishes at his restau-
rant on Venice Ave.

basil and generous amounts of
parsley.









Dinnertime solutions for busy, at-home cooks


FROM NAPSA


Today, family schedules are
dominated by work, doctor
appointments, car pools and
other activities, prompting con-
sumers to look for easy, budget-
friendly and well-balanced
solutions to dinnertime at
home.
'According to a recent study,
the average American family
dines out three evenings a week
simply due to time constraints
and a general love for restau-
rant food," said Laura Smith
Wade, senior home economist
for Whirlpool brand. 'At-home
cooks are looking for tried-and-
true solutions that will help
them provide creative, well-


rounded meals at home in less
time."
Additionally, cooking at
home can provide benefits
including more family time
around the dinner table, con-
trol over what types of ingredi-
ents are used and the oppor-
tunity to begin teaching chil-
dren how to cook. Want
another reason to start cook-
ing and stop taking out? The
American Dietetic Association
recently reported that when
families eat together, it is more
likely that meals will be
healthier and more balanced-
with less fat and higher
amounts of fiber, minerals and
vitamins.
Knowing that families are


always looking for fresh meal
options, Whirlpool brand and
Newman's Own have launched
the Let's Eat In recipe contest
and easy-to-prepare meal idea
collection. Those with great
recipe ideas can enter the con-
test, hosted by Food Network,
for a chance to win a
Whirlpool brand suite of
kitchen appliances and a year's
supply of Newman's Own
products.

morning she finds peace
and contentment for the
day in the rhythm of
kneading pizza dough.
Later she will make hot
roasted garlic dressing.
She'll run outside to snip
some thyme to add its
unique flavor to her
homemade recipe.
"Thyme smells like the
woods," she said.
As for Rosemary, as


sensual and beautiful as
she is, she isn't the only
sensual woman in the
courtyard at Scamotz.
There is her rival Olive.
Olive is an Arbequina
Olive Tree.
"Sometimes I ask the
single guys if they would
like to sit with Rosemary
or Olive," Emma said,
flashing a conspiratorial
smile.

If your
child pitches
a baseball, limit the
possibility that he or she
will overthrow. Allowing a
S young pitcher to toss too
many pitches could lead to
shoulder or elbow damage,
which might require treat-
ment. The danger to young
pitchers centers on their growth
plates, which are areas of the bone
(located near the joint) where bone
growth takes place. Growth plates
are not as strong as the bone itself
or the surrounding ligaments and
tendons. That makes them
susceptible to damage from the
stress of throwing, in which a
small piece of bone breaks off at
the point at which the tendons
attach. Chiropractic treatment
can help pinpoint and treat
areas in young athletes' bodies
that require attention.

FOOD AND FUN


Beat the heat with

fun and refreshing

summer beverages


OUR TOWN | 5B
WEDNESDAY, JULY 30, 2008


Lessons from the road


FROM NAPSA


Longer days and
warmer weather welcome
a never-ending list of sum-
mer fun. And what better
way to enjoy the sunny
days than with summer
slushies, smoothies and
sparkling beverages!
These tasty treats not
only help families beat the
heat, but they are an excel-
lent source of hydration
during the sweltering days
of summer. As the days get
longer and temperatures
rise, let cool and fruity
refreshers be your pass-
port to summer fun.
Following are some
ideas for staying cool and
hydrated this summer:
* Chill out with "fruitsi-
cles." Pour 100 percent
fruit juice and frozen
berries or fresh fruit into
small paper cups, cover
with foil, insert a wooden
craft stick and freeze. The
result? A delicious juicy
pop kids will love.
* Accessorize with a
fruity flair. Encourage kids
to make healthier bever-
age choices by adding a


creative splash to drinks.
Use colorful cups (with
silly straws, of course!)
topped with a wedge of
fresh fruit a fun way for
kids to fuel up fast.
* Refresh your freezer.
Keep frosty beverages on
hand that will quench kids'
thirst, such as fruit slushies
or tropical smoothies.
Blend frozen or fresh fruits
with all-natural fruit juice,
pour in a freezer-friendly
container and freeze for
enjoyment anytime.
* Mix and mingle with
drinks for all ages. Add kid-
friendly twists to adultlike
beverages with this refresh-
ing recipe for Sparkling
"Sangria." Featuring frozen
orange slices with apple or
white grape pure fruit
juice and seltzer water, the
best part of this flavorful
drink is its surprisingly
fruity twist. With fresh
grapes frozen inside each
ice cube, this simple recipe
provides a delightful dose
of nutritious fruits.

interactive and family-fun
recipe ideas, visit www.

Safeguarding your family's financial future


FROM NAPSA


Building a family nest egg
that won't crack could require
having something known as
term life insurance.
A term life insurance policy
offers insurance protection for
a specified term, or period of
time typically 10, 15, 20 or 30
years.
People often use term insur-
ance to help secure mortgage
payments, wedding expenses,
college loans, car loans and
similar types of debt. Because
the policies pay a predeter-
mined amount should some-
thing happen to you within a
specific time frame, they can
be a good way to help prevent
long-term-but not lifetime-
payments from being passed


on to surviving family.
Choosing term insurance
Fortunately, term insurance
can be a simple insurance
product to research and pur-
chase.
Start by going online and get-
ting quotes for similar policies
from different companies. Be
sure to have your basic personal
and health information handy,
and answer all questions truth-
fully. Then compare the quotes
against your needs. Here are a
few facts that will be helpful to
know:
Term premiums may
increase each year (known as
an annually renewable term)
or remain level for a set period
(called a level term).
Term insurance is generally


less expensive than permanent
(cash value) life insurance.
At the end of the term peri-
od, the policy may contain a
provision permitting it to be
renewed without a medical
exam, although the premium
rate will probably be higher.
Some term life insurance
policies include an option to
convert to a permanent life
insurance policy.
Traditional term life insur-
ance provides a death benefit
only; the policies do not offer an
opportunity to build cash value.
Some policies may include
terms that are more customiz-
able and that can be linked to
specific life events, including
retirement, the payoff of a mort-
gage or a child's graduation from
college. But they might also pro-


vide more affordable coverage
for people in a variety of situa-
tions.
For instance, if an individual
wants to purchase term insur-
ance but has high cholesterol, a
30-year policy may be too
expensive. However, the individ-
ual could be covered on a 26- or
27-year policy that might be a
better fit for his or her monthly
budget.
Coverage into retirement
Traditionally, term insurance
was seen as a vehicle to insure
yourself until you had enough
financial security to self-insure.
However, with these new, more
customized term options, insur-
ance can be affordable well into
retirement.
Coverage may also include


expanded ages, meaning con-
sumers in their mid 50s, 60s and
even people who are 70 years old
can purchase term insurance,
providing coverage into their
80s-considerably longer than
most term plans currently allow.
With people living longer, and
working well past 65, the added
coverage can be a smart way to
help safeguard a second mort-
gage, medical or other expenses
people tend to encounter later
in life.
Learning more
You can visit the Web site www.
aigag.com/ROPselect-a-term to
learn more about term life insur-
ance. The site can be a valuable
resource and provide important
information to help with your
decision.


Improve your financial fitness with direct deposit


FROM NAPSA


Most people think about
fitness in terms of their
physical health. Are they
eating well? Exercising
enough? Getting plenty of
rest? But it's important to
consider financial fitness
as well. For senior citizens
and others who receive
federal benefit payments,
signing up for direct
deposit is an easy first step.
Managing
your money
A recent U.S. Treasury
study shows Americans
identify direct deposit as a
key money management
tool. Yet, the study also
reveals that approximately
one in three Americans
still do not use direct
deposit, including nearly


10.5 million Social Security
and Supplemental Security
Income recipients.
"Americans clearly
believe the reliability and
safety of direct deposit help
them to better manage
their money," says Judith
R. Tillman, commissioner
of Treasury's Financial
Management Service.
"Even so, Treasury issues
more than 150 million fed-
eral benefit checks each
year. That means too many
people who receive federal
benefits don't take advan-
tage of direct deposit."
Staying safe
Achieving financial fit-
ness isn't just about keep-
ing a budget; for senior cit-
izens, it's also about safe-
guarding their money and
providing peace of mind.


In fiscal year 2007, nearly
60,000 Treasury-issued
checks were fraudulently
endorsed-totaling an esti-
mated $56 million. Direct
deposit eliminates the risk
of stolen checks and
forged signatures, and
helps protect people from
identity theft.
"Direct deposit is safer
and easier than a paper
check, and is a simple way
for seniors and people with
disabilities to get more
control over their money,"
says Luke Reynolds,
spokesperson for the
Federal Deposit Insur-
ance Corporation. "Smart
money management can
help reduce stress, make
life easier and complement
other strategies for protect-
ing one's financial security."
Planning for unforeseen


events, such as illness,
injury or severe weather is
another important part of
staying safe. People who
rely on paper checks for
their federal benefit pay-
ments, for example, can be
faced with a variety of
challenges when checks
are delayed.
Last year, more than
140,000 Social Security
and SSI checks were
delayed due to inclement


weather or other unfore-
seen events. And Treasury
receives approximately 1.4
million inquiries each year
regarding problems with
paper checks.
Making the switch
Achieving financial fit-
ness is an important goal at
any age. The Go Direct
campaign, sponsored by
Treasury and the Federal
Reserve Banks, has made


signing up for direct
deposit quick and easy.
Current benefit check
recipients can sign up
online at www.GoDirect.
org, by calling the Go Direct
helpline at (800) 333-1795
or by visiting their local
bank or credit union.
The preceding informa-
tion is provided by the
Treasury and the Federal
Reserve Banks as part of
their Go Direct campaign.

Teaching children the art of written English


FROM NAPSA

With instant messaging,
texting and e-mail as pri-
mary sources for "written"
communication, many of
today's children are grow-
ing up without enough
practice and understand-
ing on how to structure
their thoughts formally in
written English.
A recent study found
that 64 percent of U.S.
teenagers use slang in
their written schoolwork,
including abbreviations
like LOL (38 percent) and
smiley face emoticons (25
percent). More alarming,
only 56 percent of teens
surveyed even considered
"good writing" to be essen-
tial later in life. Many par-
ents, recognizing this, la-
ment that writing, at least
as they know it, is becom-
ing a lost art.
Exposure to well-writ-
ten literature, on a wide
range of topics, can help
children develop an eye for
good writing skills. Stu-
dents will begin to notice
varied sentence structure,
proper use of grammar,
compelling and effective
arguments and vivid des-
criptions.
Kumon Math & Reading
Centers offers a number of
tips for parents to encour-
age youngsters to develop
their writing skills:
Read essays, short sto-
ries and editorials: Read-
ing shorter, well-written
pieces broadens children's
knowledge of the world


and exposes them to
excellent, concise writing,
similar to that required on
standardized writing tests.
The editorial pages of your
local newspaper are a
great resource. When se-
lecting short stories or
essays, children should
choose works that interest
them. Consult with your


child's teacher or librarian
for help.
Keep a journal: Writ-
ing requires practice. By
writing daily or weekly in a
journal, children become
more comfortable with
putting their thoughts
down on paper.
Enter a contest: There
are thousands of children's


writing contests held each
year. Children's magazines
often sponsor such events.
Speak with your child's
teacher to see if there are
any school or local con-
tests for young writers in
your area.
Take part in a writing
or debate club: This is an
excellent way for children


Scouts earn scholarships

to hone their writing skills
in a supportive environ-

debate club, children learn
how to develop argu-
ments, support claims
with evidence and deliver
a pointed message suc-
cinctly. Great writers and
debaters know how
to construct an effective
and influential argument
backed by supporting evi-
dence. Writing clubs pro-
vide students with a cre-
ative outlet that enables
them to write about sub-


jects they might be unable

room. If neither club exists
in your community, help
your child start his or her
own. In both cases, chil-
dren have the opportunity
to let their own voices

Summertime, and the livin' is easy


FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

One of the neat things
about summer in Venice is
enjoying new things in a laid-
back atmosphere.
Raku artist and Venice Art
Center teacher Amy Webber
decided to invite her stu-
dents to the beach for an
afternoon of fun and explo-
ration. They dipped their
pots in sea water and used


seaweed, banana peels and
anything else they could find
to embellish their clay before
firing.
"It's a crap shoot," Pat
Kelly said. "You just get it all
on, fire it and see what you
get." Webber enjoyed watch-
ing her students experiment.
Among the free spirits were
Liz and Jim Hedges, Walter
Yovaish, Dorothy Korwek
and Donna Rollo.
The artists saw the fruits of
their labor at the Venice Art
Center the next day. Webber
gave each one a bravo.
180 years old
Family and friends cele-
brated Gordon and Aline
Williams' 90th birthdays
with a "180" party at the
Waterford Clubhouse. The
Williamses are avid bridge
players and volunteers. Aline
is a regular at the Senior


Friendship Centers.
Included in the celebra-
tion was a memory board
showing the USS Tuscaloosa,
on which Gordon served.
Claire Moore added sparkles
to the party celebrating her
30-year friendship with Aline.
Highwaymen artist
visits Venice
One of the original
Highwaymen, Al Black,
showed his art in Venice
recently. A recipient of the
Governor's Lifetime Achieve-
ment Award, Black visited
with fans at Pop's Sunset
Grill.
In the 1950s, a group of
African-American artists
earned a living by selling
their unique paintings on the
side of the road from the
trunks of their cars instead of
working in the orange groves.
Black was one of them. This


popular artist promised to
return to Venice in season.
Moxie mixer

Women with Moxie meets

hand corner.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Amy Webber. This
terrific raku teacher from the
Venice Art Center fires up her
students just the way she
fires up her clay. She loves her
work and transfers that same
passion to everyone who
works with her.
Amy Webber is one of the
teachers at the Venice Art
Center who make Venice a
great place to live.
