Turtle season draws con


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Turtle regulations are a fact of
life for Florida's coastal residents
from May 1-Oct. 31. That does
not mean that everyone is happy
with the rules.
"Keeping all the lights turned
off for the sake of turtles is mis-
guided, and says that turtles are
more important than humans,"
wrote John Smolenski, president
of Bahia Vista Gulf of Venice
Board of Directors in a letter to
city council members on July 28.
Smolenski said five people
had fallen in the area of Tarpon
Center Drive where the street
lights were turned off.

CORRESPONDENT

Venice city officials are keep-
ing their fingers crossed.
That is, for the next few
weeks, while they await a deci-
sion by Florida Communities
Trust on a grant application the
city has submitted. It seeks $3.7
million to acquire the Cemex
concrete plant site next to the
historic Venice train depot.
Approval could provide a new
10-acre park for Venice.
The sum would match one
included in the city budget for
2009. Trust for Public Land,
which has helped the city pre-
pare the grant application,
thinks chances are strong that
Sarasota County will also budget
money for the purchase. TPL,
the county and Venice have
been partners in the park pro-
ject.
Bordering and partly strad-
dling Hatchett Creek, the Legacy
Trail, Venetian Waterway Trail, a
county boat ramp and the train
depot, the parcel is the largest
within an area being studied for
redevelopment.


Effective this week Water-
line will not be provided with
the Friday paper.
In recent studies we com-
missioned it was found the
insert was not being read by
as many customers as we
thought. More crucial, howev-
er, was the lack of advertiser


Assistant City Engineer Kath-
leen Weeden replied to Smolen-
ski in an Aug. 1 letter on behalf of
the city:
... Prior to the start of
marine turtle nesting season,
the city met with Florida Light &
Power and Mote Marine's Dr.
Tony Tucker and Jim Grimes for
a comprehensive evaluation of
the existing street lighting to
determine which lights were
likely to have an impact.
"Lights identified were either
shielded or turned off as appro-
priate. Available shielding from
FPL did not meet the minimum
criteria required by the Federal
Department of Environmental
Protection and Mote Marine.


The county's Neighborhood
Parkland Acquisition Program
advisory board recommended
buying the parcel to the BCC,
giving it its highest priority.
In addition to tying together
the Legacy Trail, the depot,
waterway and a canoe/kayak
launch being pushed by the
Friends of Legacy Trail, conver-
sion of the land to a park would
help to restore the creek. City
property between a fire station
and a water utility could accom-
modate an urban greenway
along the creek, connecting
people with the trail and a SCAT
station.
Much of the creek's banks are
hardened and overrun with
exotic plants. County natural
resources personnel think that
the property is contributing to
untreated runoff with silt flow-
ing into the creek, then into the
Intracoastal Waterway. Cement
processing operations did not
end until last spring.
TPL currently has an option
to buy the property. The nation-
al nonprofit land use agency fre-

support necessary to make
this publication possible.
We hope as we come out
of the trying times we will
again be able to offer it.
While it will not be in the
paper you can pick one up at
the office on Friday or Mon-


Therefore, it was requested that
the identified lights be turned off
during marine turtle nesting
season. FPL is currently devel-
oping street light shielding that
will meet the FDEP and Mote
Marine requirements. Upon
completion of this design and
approval by the appropriate
agencies, the city intends to pur-
sue the purchase of shields for
the affected Tarpon Center Drive
lights."

Woman battles after crash on 1-75


Members of the Salvation Army Church have taken on
the injured woman's survival as a personal mission
and are holding fundraisers to help her and her son.


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

What started out as a simple
drive home from Tampa turned
into a highway battle that has a
Nokomis woman clinging to life
in an intensive care unit.
Lora Saleh was a passenger in
her son's pickup truck Saturday,
July 19, according to Donna
Taylor Rousseau, of the Venice
Salvation Army Church. All went
normally as the two traveled
southbound on Interstate 75
until a vehicle sideswiped their
truck forcing it off the highway


and causing it to roll over. When
it came to a rest, her son, Ramy,
who was driving, had serious
injuries.
Lora Saleh's injuries were
much worse, Taylor Rousseau
said.
"She has a broken neck and is
wearing a halo to keep her head
still; she has broken bones of the
arms and an ankle; and she is on
life support. I think she had an
enlarged heart before the acci-
dent, and now she is on a respi-
rator. Every time they try to pull
her off the respirator they have
to shock her with the paddles to


keep her heart going," said Tay-
lor Rousseau.
According to Taylor Rous-
seau, a couple of drivers saw the
accident and chased the vehicle
after it hit Saleh's truck and kept
going. They took down the li-
cense plate number and report-
ed it to law enforcement. The
driver was arrested and jailed.
The Florida Highway Patrol
report said John E Suppa, 52, of
Sarasota, made an improper
lane change from the outside
southbound lane to the center
lane in his 1999 Toyota where the
Selahs were traveling north of
State Road 674.
"The left front of Vehicle 1
(Suppa) struck the right side of
Vehicle 2 (Saleh)," according to

USF considers bringing college closer


BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

South County satellite cam-
puses of major universities may
not be imminent, but the lines of
communication are open.
That's the message officials at
the University of South Florida
in Tampa are sending about the
future of higher education in the
region. There is hope that its
existing partnership with Man-
atee Community College may
lead to something more.
Arthur Guildford, vice presi-
dent and CEO of USF's Sarasota-
Manatee campus, said things
are moving for expanding USF
offerings farther into South
Sarasota County.
In June, he received an offer

Thieves bag cash machine at Lox 'N Egg Bread Company


JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

Crooks tore an ATM
machine out of the Lox 'N
Egg Bread Company, lo-
cated on South Tamiami
Trail, late Saturday night
leaving behind a substan-


tial amount of damage to a
corner window and a few
big holes in the floor.
According to the police
report, several unidenti-
fied burglars used rocks to
smash through a window
of the restaurant; they
then tied a thick tow strap


around the ATM located
inside and used a pickup
truck to pull the machine
free from the bolts secur-
ing it to the floor.
All went exactly accord-
ing to plan; except for one
thing. "If you look at the
machine, there was a sign


indicating that it wasn't in
service," manager Derek
Krzypkowski said, "it was
completely empty."
Lox 'N Eggs was re-
opened for business later
the same day, only with a
sheet of plywood in place
of the corner window.

A historic pioneer home occupied by the Lord and Higel fami-
lies is getting renewed attention.



Lord-Higel House



Friends formed


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

A rekindled effort to
renovate the pioneer-era
Lord House is under way.
The Friends of the
Lord-Higel House Inc., a
fundraising arm for the
Lord House similar to
the Triangle Inn Associ-
ation that helps fund the
city archives building -
was recently formed.
It held its first organiza-
tional meeting on July 21
where it elected its officers
and board of directors.
Jack Bauer will serve as
president.
The organization was
pursued by the Venice
Historic Preservation
Board, but the two entities
are separate.
The Lord House is own-
ed by the city, and badly
needed fundraising to
restore and operate the
historic structure has thus
far been elusive.
At its July 18 meeting
the city's Historic Preser-
vation Board passed a mo-
tion recommending the
name be changed from
Lord House to Lord-Higel
House.
The move could broad-
en public exposure to the
effort and hopefully gar-
ner more support for the
renovation and operation


of a house museum about
pioneer life in the area.
According to Preser-
vation Board Member
Betty Intagliata, both Jo-
seph H. Lord, who built
the house in 1896 and
lived there for nine years,
and George Higel, Lord's
citrus grove manager who
occupied the home from
1906 to 1919, lived in the
house.
"The house should bear
the name of both Lord and
Higel because both men
are historically signifi-
cant," Intagliata said.
"They were contempo-
raries and appeared to
have respected one anoth-
er."
Lord was engaged in
real estate, citrus cultiva-
tion and a variety of other
business, and served in
the state Legislature in
1921, she said.
Higel wrote a column
for the Sarasota Times
from 1899-1923 under the
pen name "Nemo," giving
his account of pioneer life
in Venice and Sarasota
County during those years.
Ex-officio member and
current Council Member
John Moore offered to
bring the proposed name
change before city council
at its Aug. 12 meeting.

clockwise traveling in a
southwest direction across
the inside lane, prior to
overturning on the outside
paved shoulder. Vehicle 2
continued to overturn
before coming to final rest
facing westbound in the
tree line."
Damage to Suppa's ve-


hicle was estimated at
$800; damage to the Saleh
vehicle was estimated at
$8,000. Both drivers are
insured, according to the
FHP report. Suppa re-
ceived two citations:
"Lane-fail to drive in a sin-
gle lane," and "crash-leav-
ing the scene-injuries."
Spirited response
Taylor Rousseau, Bill,
her husband, and Cap-
tains Chris and Heidi


Farrell, pastors at the Sal-
vation Army, have made
the daily trek to Tampa to
support their parishioner
since the accident, keep-
ing a vigil, praying and
looking out for her best
interests. Members of the
congregation pray for her,
and the youth at the
church are involved in
fundraising activities to
help the Salehs.
"We're trying to keep
her spirit going. The kids


and the congregation made
cards for her. We read them
to her so she doesn't get
depressed," Taylor Rous-
seau said. "Her head was
shaved so they could
attach the halo. We've con-
tacted The Learning
Channel because the kids
want to get her on Extreme
Makeover, and we need to
make a video and tell her
story. When she gets bet-
ter, the day-to-day living
will be a long process," she


said.
She added that they are
trying to get her a wig from
Locks of Love or another
organization, but so far
the places she contacted
only cater to a specialized
need, such as children for
Locks of Love and cancer
for other organizations.
"We're just starting. It
will take a while," Taylor
Rousseau said. "The kids

program want to go in and

some species, endangered
creatures. In addition to
those laws, the city of
Venice and other cities
along the coast have en-
acted lighting ordinances
for areas where artificial
lights might shine on the
beach and cause disorien-
tations of nesting females
and hatchlings. The Venice
ordinance is 95-07, Light-
ing Restrictions During Ma-
rine Turtle Nesting Season.
In general the law re-
quires residents of beach-
front homes and condos to
draw their draperies at
night and to shield any
outdoor lights that might
directly shine on areas of
the beach, where they
might distract the turtles.
Also forbidden are any
lights at the beach itself,
such as lights from bon-
fires, flashlight, cigarette
lighters or photographic
lights, for example. Cars
parked in beach area park-
ing lots should turn off
their lights.
Explanations
Last year, some 30 street
lights were turned off in
beach areas within the city.
"I am curious why
Golden Beach Boulevard is
exempted from the same
regulations that apply to
the Esplanade and Tarpon
Center Drive," Smolenski
added in his letter.
According to Weeden, in
her reply, those lights were
not identified by FDEP or
Mote to have an impact on
nesting marine turtles.
"In addition, during a
comprehensive field in-
spection conducted by
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission on May 7,
2008, no street lights along


Golden Beach Boulevard
were identified as having a
potential impact to nest-
ing marine turtles."
Weeden went on to say,
"FFWC did identify six
areas of concerns at the
BahiaVista Gulf complex."
Identified in the city's
letter to Smolenski are

Replacement of some fix-
tures also was suggested.
Hazards
The first nesting inci-
dent this season was just
before May 1 on Venice
Beach. Lights shining to-


mo


ward the beach are a ma-
jor hazard for sea turtles.
When nesting females
and their hatchling off-
spring become disorient-
ed by stray light they often
end up in harm's way, even
in roads or parking lots
where they can be hit by
motorists.
"It is a continual pro-


cess of education," city
code enforcement officer
John Patek said.
"I sent out about a doz-
en letters yesterday (Mon-
day) just to remind people
but by and large, most
people are doing a great
job again this year."

Martinez backs

fraud prevention


STAFF REPORT

U.S. Senator Mel Mar-
tinez (R-FL) on Tuesday
made the following state-
ment regarding the Gov-
ernment Accountability
Office report detailing sig-
nificant oversight prob-
lems at the Center for
Medicare and Medicaid
Services in relation to
Medicare fraud.
He recently introduced
the Seniors and Taxpayers
Obligation Protection
(STOP) Act, with Senator
John Coryn (R-TX), to give
federal agencies the tools
they need to crack down on
fraud before it occurs.
"The report released to-
day further demonstrates
why agencies need tools to
stop fraud at the front end
rather than having the
Department of Justice get
involved at the back end
after the fraud has occur-
red," said Martinez.


"Medicare fraud is not
only hurting seniors but it
is also wasting taxpayer
dollars. Instead of contin-
uing the current practice
of pay and chase, the fed-
eral government needs to
shift to a policy of detect
and prevent."
According to the new
study released today by
the GAO, roughly $1 billion
of the $10 billion in annual
Medicare payments for
medical equipment are
later deemed improper.
The Martinez-Cornyn
STOP Act requires the
Secretary of HHS to estab-
lish and implement proce-
dures to change the cur-
rent system of using Social
Security numbers as the
Medicare Beneficiary Iden-
tifier used on Medicare
cards. The bill will also
help to improve HHS's de-
tection methods and place
billing statements under
increased scrutiny.

Buchanan-Mahoney team on Sarasota energy forum


BY TERRY O'CONNOR
NORTH PORT
ASSISTANT EDITOR

U.S. Reps. Vern Buchan-
an, R-Sarasota, and Tim
Mahoney, D-Venus, want
concrete plans about how
the United States can best
deal with its energy crisis.
But first they are trying
to bridge the bipartisan
divide stonewalling pro-
gress on developing an
energy policy.
"People are dug in,"
Buchanan said of grid-
locked Congress. "We've
got to find a way to work
together and not just on
energy. There are good
ideas on both sides of the
aisle that need to be push-


ed aggressively."
Buchanan and Maho-
ney are setting an example
of bipartisan cooperation.
"We're two business
guys who can work to-
gether on 90 percent of the
issues," said Buchanan.
The two congressmen
earlier this year failed to
push through the Drill Re-
sponsibly in Leased Lands
Act. DRILL would have re-
quired oil producers to drill
on leases they already own
or cede them to another oil
company willing to do so.
DRILL also called for:
Speeding leasing in
Alaska's National Petrol-
eum Reserve.
Completing pipelines
to Alaska's National Petrol-


eum Reserve.
Constructing an Alas-
kan natural gas pipeline to
the United States.
Banning the export of
Alaskan oil.
The Florida congress-
men have not given up on
developing an energy poli-
cy designed to wean
America off its over-de-
pendence on foreign oil
through a combination of
increased domestic pro-
duction and development
of alternative fuels togeth-
er with heightened envi-
ronmental awareness.
"Floridians do not have
to put our beaches and
tourism industry at risk,"
Mahoney said.
Backing talk with time,


Buchanan and Mahoney
have scheduled a biparti-
san roundtable discussion
regarding the need for a
national energy policy on
Monday at the University
of South Florida's Sara-
sota-Manatee Campus.
"We're trying to get a
diverse group trying to do
a bipartisan effort showing
we can work together on
some things," Buchanan
said. "We need a compre-
hensive energy plan. We
also need to be drilling,
not right off our beaches,
but in the (Arctic National
Wildlife Refuge) where
half our proven reserves
are."

OUR VIEW



Put the ballot in the mail and run it off


In an era in which worldwide com-
munication is instantaneous, bil-
lions of dollars are transferred by
wire and even the most sensitive na-
tional security data is digitally stored, it
seems anachronistic that we're still vot-
ing at neighborhood precincts and
those votes are physically hauled to
centralized locations for tabulation.
Elections procedures are so resistant
to change that progress is currently
measured by Florida's recent reversion
to old technologies such as optical-scan
machines that read pencil markings on
paper ballots.
Older is not necessarily better, but
neither is it automatically worse. For
example, we're pleased to hear progress
is being made toward lifting turnout
levels and reducing election costs using


one of the oldest methods of communi-
cation in America, the U.S. Postal
Service. Thanks to absentee ballots and
early voting, half the votes in the prima-
ry election may be cast before Election
Day.
The use of absentee ballots got a
boost from the Legislature, which clari-
fied statutory language to make it spell
out to voters they didn't need to be out
of town to be eligible to request an
absentee ballot.
In addition, an absentee ballot
request is now valid for two election
cycles, making it even more convenient
for voters and more efficient for elec-
tions supervisors.
A push is afoot to make absentee bal-
lot requests valid for a voter's lifetime. If
Florida can issue lifetime fishing li-


censes, it surely can manage to autho-
rize a voter to choose a lifetime voting
method.
In addition to encouraging higher
voter turnout, voting by mail is cheaper.
And while elections account for a frac-
tion of local government spending,
even modest cost efficiencies could free
up money to address a glaring weak-
ness in Florida elections: the lack of a
run-off election.
In the rush to reform following the
2000 presidential election debacle, run-
off elections were abolished. Now
instead of majority rule in Florida, we
have plurality rule, in which the top
vote-getter in a primary wins or moves
to the general election, even if a majori-
ty of voters preferred anybody but the
top vote-getter. A run-off would ensure


that the will of the majority of voters,
whatever that may be, is reflected in the
results.
We understand elections in Florida
have been through a decade of reform
and re-reform. Remember, the 2000
election was preceded by a controver-
sial campaign to purge certain voters
from the rolls.
The will to do more tweaking in a
highly charged partisan atmosphere
may be waning. But casting votes and
counting ballots are among the most
important things citizens and govern-
ment do.
Getting more people involved and
getting it right are paramount. We think
voting by mail and reintroducing
runoffs are two steps toward those
goals.

tors Inc. assembled a di-
verse group of experts to
talk about the economy
and what is ahead.
There wasn't a lot of
optimism. Financial plan-
ner Mark Stough seemed
to hedge his bets the most.
Others who are living it in
real life outlined the real
picture.
Mike Miller of the
Waterford companies said
while credit had come to
be too loose a couple of
years ago, it is now too
tight, particularly, in the
housing market. It really
didn't matter because in
that sector there was so
much housing inventory
from speculation and fore-
closure that there was
enough inventory to carry
the market to 2010 at least.
His company, like many
others, has taken a new
approach to combat this.
Some have left the state to
continue building housing
while Miller's company
and many others have mi-
grated more toward com-
mercial building which is
still moving a little. A
prime example of this is
the Renaissance project
planned for Laurel Road
and Interstate 75. Origin-
ally, this had been ap-
proved with a large hous-
ing component and a clus-
ter of smaller shops, rest-
aurants and a movie the-
ater.
The project morphed
away from the quaint
small shops that would
likely now not work in this
economy to a Wal-Mart
along with the theater and
a few other shops. Not sur-
prisingly, that change re-
ceived a lot of complaints
from those in North
Venice. Since the rejection
from the planning com-
mission, Waterford has
redrawn the looks of the
center closer to what it
looked like to begin with. It
has a nice look as it had
with the smaller shops
even though the plan can
accommodate a large box
retailer. It might not be
Wal-Mart since it canceled
its contract with Water-
ford. However, my bet is if
this plan is approved, Wal-
Mart will be back in the
picture again. I should
mention that my econo-
mist brother Rich has writ-
ten a positive book on the
economic value of Wal-


Mart to a community.
While I might prefer
boutiques, times are such
that I think we should
move forward with this
very attractive project that
will help stimulate our
economy. Once this pro-
ject gets far enough along,
the Habitat for Humanity
project for affordable
housing next to it can
begin. We have seen one of
Mr. Miller's companies
struggling, and we don't
need to make another do
the same. For all of those
that always want fewer
homes, you should like
this approach.


By's Crack: I gave
the bride an old family
recipe for sponge cake

ingredients.



The Wellness Center the
Waterford Company has
been building at the high
school with funding from
the school board, the Gulf
Coast Community Foun-
dation of Venice and the
community at large is
almost complete. In the
event of a hurricane this is
the place to be. Wow, it's
built strong. Also the GCC-
FOV has announced a nice
sum of money to help
equip it. Wayne Hall and
those trying to get the
funds, need matching
funds from the communi-
ty. This building will bene-
fit all the sports teams and
other students.

Manna Ministries of the

great job leading this.
Manna Ministries repre-

ed many in the communi-
ty including Publix, Bob
Evans, Waterford and the
newspapers including our
own Kim Cool. Many oth-
ers not in attendance have
helped contribute food or
the $12,000 needed to run
the ministry. In fact Con-

who would agree with at
least part of that.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Now's the time to move the airport


Editor:
Don't make the same mistake as the Sarasota airport
when it did not move out east near 1-75 and ended up
having to buy homes in Whitfield Estates.
Land prices have dropped, so now should be the time
to give this some serious consideration. The county has
bought so much land out there that an airport could be
built and not be a problem for any homes nearby.
The FAA said 10 years ago that it doesn't care if the air-
port is on the island as long as there is an airport in
Venice. They could build a bigger, better airport, hotels
and an industrial park where there is room to grow. More
income, more jobs.
It's time to give this land back to the people. Sell the
land to the Venice Mobile Home Park. Sell the land to the
Holiday Apartments. Sell the land to the golf course or to
the city to make a public golf course.
We can do so much more with 800 acres than have a
restricted airport and tin storage huts all over the place.
The FAA also says the golf course, et al., must pay rent
based on the value of the land. There is no way anyone
could afford to pay rent based on the value of that land,
so this will always be a problem to fight over.
If money is to be spent, let's do it right. Get the airport
and all its commercial businesses off the island and give
the land back to the people.

Let's fight where
the real enemy is
Editor:
Who is more responsi-
ble, the jerk that makes the
stupid statement, or the
media who spread these
statements as if they were
gospel?
"We'll bring the troops
home when we win the
war" that's what hap-
pens when a war is won,
the troops come home.
Who are you fighting in
Iraq? The women and chil-
dren, the fathers and sons?
A war is not a war without
a clear-cut enemy it is a
dysfunctional occupation.
The war is in Afghan-


istan, where there is in-
deed a clearly defined
enemy. No oil, just pop-
pies. We're fighting that
war with our hands tied
behind our backs. If only
you and your buddy
George would get behind
us in that effort by stand-
ing up to Pakistan and
building an army the likes
of our total troop strength
in Vietnam at its peak
(600,000), the tide would
change dramatically.
As I said, no oil, no big-
bucks contractors and no
more unnecessary spook
deaths. That, of course,
would take the majority of
troops in Iraq (send the


rest home).
How about it, a good,
old-fashioned battle, fought
with awesome strength.
The time to do it is now
because you may be his
clone, but you will not be
taking his seat after the
election.

Patients have more
to worry about
Editor:
While tons of people
seem to be getting bent
out of shape over one of
Venice airport's runways
being described as "very
poor," I haven't encoun-
tered much concern being
expressed about Florida's
hospitals being described
as "weak" by the National
Healthcare Quality Report.
Many more people trust
their lives to our hospitals
than to our runways.
The issue of money in
medicine seems to have
elbowed other concerns
aside.
Take Dr. Michael Pa-
tete's widely circulated
concern about the recent
threat to reduce Medicare
reimbursements by about
10 percent.
His primary concern
seemed to be the impact
that a reduction of reim-
bursements would have on
doctor availability.
Many of us, however,
fought the reduction be-
cause it would also have
ensured that insurance
companies would have
reaped yet another huge
and unjustifiable windfall


- at taxpayer expense.
I appreciate Dr. Patete's
concern about his income
and the incomes of his col-
leagues, but as a patient I
would feel more reassured
if Dr. Patete also expressed
concern about the epi-
demic of accidental deaths
in our hospitals and about
the recourse to question-
able but expensive proce-
dures and tests, to cite but
two important examples.

Cops commended
for compassion
Editor:
On Thursday, July 24,
we had occasion to call the
police for one of our
neighbors who was having
a problem. She thought
someone had broken into
her condo with a gun and
was going to harm her.
She came to our door at
4:30 a.m. and we called 9-
1-1. Two policemen re-
sponded promptly, and
they were extremely pro-
fessional and polite. They
calmed and assured her,
and after checking her
condo, took great care in
walking her through.
One officer was Mike
Rose, but I didn't get his
partner's name.
It was a credit to the po-
lice department to have
these officers show such
care and compassion to
one of our senior citizens.
Thanks to them and the
Venice PD.

Sarasota County's terrible high school record


ALAN KUNERTH
GUEST COLUMNIST


How would you rank a
school district that awarded
only 2,303 standard diplo-
mas to 4,643 kids who en-
tered the high schools four
years earlier?
Adjusted for a 15-per-
cent increase in total high
school enrollments in the
last four years (2004-07),
only 50 percent of the
ninth-graders who entered
the high schools earned a
standard diploma. That
compares to the national
graduation rate of 70 per-
cent in school year 2007.
Worse, 400 Sarasota
County students 14 and







pub & rife

231 W. Venice Ave.


15 years old dropped out
between the ninth and 10th
grades between 2004 and
2005; 800 dropped out at 16
before the 11th grade.
Talk about "No Child
Left Behind."
Sarasota County is a
prime example that no mat-
ter how much money is
thrown at the dropout prob-
lem, unless it is allocated
wisely by the school board
and administrators, there
will be little progress in
reducing the drop-out rate.
With enrollments grow-
ing only 1 percent this year,
why is the school board
spending 9 percent more in
operating expenses? In-
cluding construction and
supplies, the board and
administrators are spend-
ing $16,570 per student for
one year.
This school board has
never met a tax increase it
didn't like, and the tax will
grow to $20,000 per student
each year in four years, ac-
cording to Rod Thomson, a
columnist who has tracked
education issues in Sara-

sota for 14 years.
A new and respected
school superintendent is
taking the helm of the dis-
trict this year. As usual, Ms.
White will get a honey-
moon from the print media
and the school board.
But the problem in Sara-
sota County is not with its
procession of superinten-
dents since Charles Fowler
in 1992. The buck stops
with some of the highest-
paid school board mem-
bers in the nation, based on
enrollments served. If Sara-
sota County were graduat-
ing 90 percent of its high
school students as in
Massachusetts they
would be worth it.
School board members
should be appointed. The
teachers unions own the
ballot box. I would suggest
that the board of county
commissioners appoint
school board members.
If Sarasota County had
even met the national grad-
uation rate of 70 percent in
the past four years, an argu-
ment could be made that


the county is on track to
improve over the dismal
graduation rates of the '90s.
It is not.
We need change. Our
students need change.
Dropouts earn half the in-
comes of high school grad-
uates. College graduates
earn 10 times the incomes
of high school graduates
over their lifetimes.
Unlike many poorer
communities, we have the
resources. In a couple of
years we will be spending
$20,000 a year for each
enrollee perhaps the
highest investment in the
country.
Sarasota County is a
mecca for successful people
from across the nation. We
need a school board whose
members have been lead-
ers in their communities,
their states and the nation.
Their mission should be
a 90-percent graduation
rate not a stepping stone
to the next political office.
Alan M. Kunerth writes
extensively on senior and
education issues.

May I offer you some ad-
vice? Five of the class
members were there for
going too fast in the con-
struction zone in Osprey
and Nokomis. You might
want to go within the
speed limit there. I think
it's unfortunate FDOT has
not changed the speed
limit north of Albee Road
where the job is virtually
complete. It is very hard to
go 35 mph in that area.
Incidentally, effective July
1 the fines have gone up

estate taxes. There were

k s More
people with
low-back pain choose to
be treated by chiro-
practors than any other
healthcare practitioner.
Efficacy aside, most seem to
like the hands-on care they
receive as chiropractors
endeavor to restore range of
motion and ease pain by
manipulating, or realigning, the
spine. At least one study also shows
that chiropractors tend to offer
patients more self-care advice and
information about their condition and
treatment than physicians. In
addition, research indicates that back
patients treated by chiropractors are
more satisfied with their caregiver
than those treated by medical
doctors. Taken together, these
findings add up to a healthy
endorsement of chiropractors as
back-pain specialists. If you
suffer from back pain, you owe it
to yourself to see a chiropractor.

'Finish these projects off'


Waiting game. Still waiting for the new park at the
end of Laurel Road at Myakka. Seems the Sertoma Club
is allowed to use the property, but no other citizens have.
It still hasn't been mowed or improved. Also, the con-
struction of U.S. 41 through the Laurel area, I see that
they still haven't put up the new overhead lights at Laurel
Road or Roberts Road. They've been sitting up at 681 by
the road for more than a year. This is a good time to put
them up since there's not much traffic out there. Also, the
sidewalk at Albee and 41 across from Matthews-Currie
has still not been completed. I know they're working on
the bridges, but this has been a long time. It's a great
opportunity to finish these projects off, at least the side-
walks, to make it safe. Also, the Nokomis Volunteer Fire
Department just got a new truck, as seen on Channel 7
recently. It was stated that only 50 percent of the people
pay their membership dues. I know my neighbors don't
pay. It needs to be turned over the the county. I also have
a question about the Knights Trail area Nokomis cov-
ers it, but has to drive by a city fire station to get to it. It
doesn't make sense. It should be the first station that
responds, the closest one. They're all in the same busi-
ness, and this could be a life-saving measure. The coun-
ty needs to take over the city and Nokomis so the first
department gets the call and the closest one responds.


Smoke signal. The
news about the fires in the
West carries an important
message. If at all possible,
stay out of smoke. Oddly
enough, the rule is if you're
inside and smell smoke, go
outside. If you're outside
and smell smoke, go
inside. It's amazing how
many people work and
play outside when smoke
is present.


Hasty decision. I just
read in an article where
the Venice team lost out
because of rain. I know
they were 2 and 1 and
Englewood was 3 and 0,
but I see no reason they
should have made such a
hasty judgment. First of
all, I hope they've learned
that you don't predict the
weather in Florida. Second
of all, case in point, the


Venice High School varsity
softball team they went
all those games without
losing one, and then they
lost in the last champi-
onship game. So, I just feel
bad for the players, for
both teams, all teams; and
I really wish they had not
acted so hastily. Some-
times as adults we do act
hastily. Reconsider the
weather because you just
don't predict the weather. I
think the boys, all around,
lost out.
Bunk. Well, the Trib on
Monday the 14th, had a
front-page story on the
pros and cons of off-shore
drilling, leaning more
toward the pros and gaso-
line price reductions. It
was indeed a story be-
cause on the very next day
it printed an editorial say-
ing that President Bush's
statements connecting ris-
ing gas prices and off-
shore drilling is pure
"bunk," and it and Mc-
Cain's claims were purely
political, preying upon
people's fears. If you
haven't read that editorial,
please do, and see the
light. Off-shore drilling will
not, I repeat, will not lower
the price of gasoline for a


long, long time to come, if
ever. If Lonesome George
wanted to be honest for a
change, he'd recover the
value of our dollar by
increasing the interest
rate, not lowering it. He
should direct his puppet to
do this, and the gas prices
will start going back down,
believe me. And if flip-
flopping Crist doesn't start
working for the people of
Florida instead of his own
political ambitions, I hope
McCain picks him, as he
will lose Florida for him.
Resolved. To solve the
debate over the change in
the Venice Little Theatre's
name why don't we just
call it Murray's Place?
Hours. I'm calling
about a 7/24 work week.
The newspapers have
been carrying articles
about cities, counties and
companies going to the
4/10 work week. However,
this doesn't mean that
these cities', counties' and
companies' services need
to be reduced by one day.
A 4/10 does not mean that
an office closes and every-
one gets a happy three-day
weekend; it means staffers
only work four days out of
seven, that day off being
any one of those week days
or maybe even a weekend,
but then an alternate steps
in and continues provid-


ing the services these cus-
tomers or clients need.
With experience working
10 hours a day, it does not
always mean you get 10
hours of work for the 10
hours of pay given an
employee. You end up
having work overload, and
you're just tired after eight
hours, usually. I think
businesses, counties and
cities need to use their
staff more effectively and
provide the customers
with services that makes a
community successful.
Yes, work 4/10, but still
keep your current hours.
Makes living a lot easier.
Just fine. I'm not sure
why a complaint has to be
generated by a citizen to
have the Code Enforce-
ment Department take
care of a code violation.
The officer can go up and
down any street, any time,
and find dozens of code
enforcement violations,
everything from garbage
in the front yard to waist-
high weeds to parked cars
without license plates. The
only thing I can think of is
maybe they're short in
manpower, and I know the
budget crunch is really hit-
ting the county govern-
ment. That's where my
idea comes in: People
know that it's against the
code to have waist-high
weeds, so I think that they
should be fined very simi-
lar to how a person knows
that going 55 in a 35 mph


WEDNESDAY, AUG., 6, 2008


zone is against the law,
and if you get caught,
you're going to pay a fine.
That should be the same
for code violation. We all
got pamphlets in the mail
telling us to be responsible
homeowners and respon-
sible renters; landlords
who are out of town need
to be responsible also. If
someone has garbage in
their front yard or a
derelict car, that should be
fined, period. The county
needs to start making
money on code violations
rather than losing it.
Whose ox? I'm always
amused at Democrats and
liberals rallying for free
speech until it goes against
their point of view. Take
recent talking points in
Let'em Have It on July 18.
They were upset because a
letter to the editor referred
to Osama by giving his
correct given name of
Hussein; yet, has no prob-
lem referring to the vice
president as Darth Che-
ney. Really. Now who's the
party of meanspirited-
ness? I say Democrats.
Insecure? Sad to see
that they want to change
the name of our theater,
which we are so fortunate
to have. People that want
this change must feel that
word "Little" applies to
them. They must be very
insecure in themselves if
they can't stand the word
"Little" in the name of our
theater.

County warns
residents against
fraudulent water
testing phone calls
SARASOTA COUNTY

Someone is trying to
convince Sarasota County
Utilities customers that
they are required to test
their drinking water twice a
year, and for $50 each time,
they'll be happy to perform
the service. The problem: it
isn't true, and the phone
calls are fraudulent.
According to Sarasota
County Utilities' Mike
Misoff, residents began
reporting calls last Friday,
Aug. 1. A caller portraying
herself as working for
Sarasota County contact-
ed at least one woman
asking to come to her
home to test the water.
The caller even offered to
send a female technician.
"Sarasota County does
not require testing of indi-
vidual homes, nor do we
ask to come in to your
home," said Misoff, who
added that some residents
are being approached with
door-to-door visits. "Sara-
sota County does not
charge customers to test
their water. It is tested
daily at the water plants
and throughout the water
distribution system."
Sarasota County Utilities
also conducts required
monthly bacteriological
sampling at more than 120
sites throughout the water
distribution system
Misoff said that resi-
dents who receive a call
from anyone identifying
themselves as Sarasota
County Utilities employ-
ees should contact the
Sarasota County Call
Center at 941-861-5000 to
verify the caller's identity.

ILAMINATE/WOOD FLOORING 'TILE, CARPET 'AREA RUGS
U. -


By Vicki Lonnell,
S M.A., CCC/A
ASHA Certified Audiologist
Q. My husband just
bought expensive hearing
aids with directional
microphones which are
supposed to get rid of
background noises so he
can hear in public places.
He paid extra for this
feature but he's still
having difficulty under-
standing conversations
when we are out with
friends. What's wrong?
A. Research shows that
directional microphones do
benefit the hearing aid user
by improving the signal-to-
noise ratio of the listening
environment. However, not
all directional miscrop-
hones systems operate in
the same way. Some
systems utilize a fixed
setting which reduces
sounds from behind the
head and increases sounds
coming from the front.
Other systems use adaptive
directional microphones
which "seek out" the noisy
places in the listening
environment and stops
those noises from entering
the microphones. Most
importantly, most direct-
ional systems use phase
cancellation as the method
of eliminate the noise. For
phase cancellation two
work properly, two
microphones must be
perfectly matched to one
another. If the microphones
of your husband's hearing
aids are out of phase, he
will not receive the benefit
of directional listening. If
you would like to have
your husband's hearing aid
microphones checked, call
the Audiologists at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers, Inc. at
(941) 492-HEAR to
schedule an appointment
for a hearing aid check
and cleaning.

A (Cooperstown) dream come true


STAFF REPORT

Venice's Josh Grubbs, Tyson
Albert, Danny Raynor and
Brandon Elmy helped take their
team to the top at a national
youth baseball tournament in
Cooperstown, N.Y, last week.
The Sidewinders Baseball Club,


which is made up of players from
Venice, Sarasota, Bradenton and
Fort Myers, went 8-0 in a national,
single-elimination tournament at
Cooperstown Dreams Park to lay
claim to the Week 9 Champion-
ship.
Albert pitched a one-hitter in
the tournament semifinal game


to advance to the championship.
The Sidewinders took on the
Michiana (Ind.) Clippers in the
tournament final on Thursday.
Tied 1-1 in the bottom of the fifth,
Grubbs drove in Raynor on a two-
run shot over the 220-foot, left-
center field wall.
Elmy had four home runs in


eight games.
The Cooperstown Dreams Park
is home to the American Youth
Baseball Hall of Fame. The facility
hosts 11 weekly tournaments
along with the National American
Tournament of Champions each
summer that attract young play-
ers from all over the country.


VHS juniors

are ahead

of the curve

All Trey Burton and
Dorothy Rahal have to do
before leaving for college is
pack their things and
play another two years of
high school ball.
Rahal committed to
play volleyball for the
Marshall Thundering Herd
in 2010 and she's never
started a game for Venice.
Burton committed to play
quarterback for the Florida
Gators in 2010 after play-
ing only one year at the
position.
Burton and Rahal don't
start their junior year at
Venice High School until
Aug. 20, and they're
already set to start their
freshman year of college.
Venice head volleyball
coach Brian Wheatley is a
believer in early commit-
ments, as long as the cir-
cumstances are right.
"I'm a believer in play-
ing at someone's highest
potential, and if that [offer]
comes early, then so be it.
Now, if something comes
along that's not a kid's
highest potential, then I'm
totally against it," he said.
In the case of Rahal, an
NCAA Division-I offer for
someone who is 5-8 does-
n't come along too often.
In the case of Burton, the
level of college football
doesn't get much higher
than in the Southeastern
Conference.
Last week Venice head
football coach John Peacock
said early commitments
offer a chance for young
athletes to get comfortable
with the school, coaches
and current players long
before enrolling.
"The flip side of that is
they've got two more years
left of high school and
that's who they're playing
for," Wheatley said.
Burton already indicat-
ed that his focus is on win-
ning a state championship
at Venice. He said he can't
think about moving on to
college before accom-
plishing his goals in high
school. But on a Jackson-
ville radio show on Mon-
day afternoon, Burton also
said that he can't wait to
get to Gainesville.
Burton and Rahal are
caught between college
and high school. It's
impossible not to look to
the future, but they should
be careful and try to keep
their focus on the here and
now. Their future college
coaches sought them out
because of great potential,
now they have to work
hard to fulfill that poten-
tial at the high school
level.
"The pressure on an
unsigned senior is remark-
able," Wheatley said, say-
ing that for Rahal and
Burton the pressure to per-
form for scouts is off. "But
again, the flip side of that is
'hey, I committed as a
sophomore and I don't
need to do anything any-
more.' But I guarantee if
Trey or Dorothy went to
their respective colleges
today ... They're going on
potential and what we
(coaches) say, but the
responsibility comes back
on the kid."

Wile E. Coyote?


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST

There is no question in
my mind that the turtle
egg thief is a coyote or
two.
About a month ago, it
finally occurred to me that
I was seeing too many
cracked turtle eggs on the
beach. I talked to several
Mote Marine volunteers
and they all said that the
culprit was a nocturnal
coyote.
Apparently no one has
actually seen him, her or
maybe them up close. One
gentleman told me that he
followed two sets of tracks
through the sand and
brush.
The tracks were leading
directly across Harbor
Drive onto the golf course
property. He said they def-
initely were not bobcat or
raccoon tracks.
My wife, Lois, and I saw
a coyote in our neighbor-

hood about eight years
ago. Our house was one of
the first built, so the area
was fairly quiet. Lois was
riding her bike around the
block and saw what looked
like a German shepherd in
the middle of the street. He
stared at her for a moment
and then disappeared into
the nearby woods. Just the
day before I watched him
walking across a field near
my house.
I phoned the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission
because I didn't think that
coyotes were common in
this area. I described the
animal to them and they
confirmed that it was a
coyote and that it wasn't
that unusual.
Hopefully Mote will put
cages around the nests.
They told me that one nest
had more than 300 eggs
destroyed. The good news
is that these animals seem
to be more afraid of us
than we are of them pre-
sent company excluded.
I'll get back to fishing
reports next week. I just
could not resist talking
about the coyotes.

quently invests its resourc-
es to work on a public ben-

trol until a government
can afford to make the
purchase. TPL took that
route five years ago, when
it purchased the CSX rail
corridor in behalf of the
county until the latter
could budget for what has
become the legacy Trail.
"We have this one shot to
succeed, thanks to the
depressed real estate mar-
ket," said Douglas Hatta-
way, aTPL project manager.
"The current landowner
had intended to develop
the property for other uses."
Hattaway disclosed that
TPL has been working
with the offices of the city
manager and the city engi-
neer on the technical
aspects of the grant appli-
cation and on funding.
"Upon a successful
grant application and par-
ticipation by the county,
Venice could have this
incredible parkland/trail-
head property for 25 per-
cent of the acquisition
cost," Hattaway said.
"This is a compelling
project that TPL is confi-
dent the community has
reason to rally behind."

from area developer Frank
Menke for USF to use a
two-story bank building in
North Port for classes.
"We have had a South
County program for about
three years, operated on
the MCC (Venice) cam-
pus," Guildford said.
"We're simply looking at all
the possible options.
"One would be to
remain on the MCC cam-
pus, another would be to
work with a developer
either in an existing build-
ing and move in there, or
work with a developer who
would build for us, or do-
nate the land and we could
build. Another option is to
build a shared facility on
the MCC campus."
With things up in the
air, Guildford said the op-
tions may cost more mon-
ey. Keeping the existing
agreement with MCC
might be beneficial to USE
He said USF is in talks
with MCC to change some
of the lease conditions.

USF students there per

North Port City Man-
ager Steve Crowell said city
staff has conducted "infor-
mal" meetings with USF
about helping to facilitate
the university's growth
plans.
"It is my understanding
that USF is considering
their options for expan-


sion, but we are not privy
to the details," he said.
"USF or any other quality
institution of higher learn-
ing would be an important
contribution to our eco-
nomic development ef-
forts, which is why such an
action is part of our plan. If
USF ... wanted to make a
proposal to the city for

commission would con-
sider any such proposal."

Ensure the health and safety of your pet


BY JESSICA MILLER
INTERN
Any animal owner is an animal
lover. Pets have a tremendous
impact on our lives.
Pets determine who we date,
how we eat, how many hours a
week we work and where we may
vacation.
According to the Human-Animal
Bond Survey by Harris Interactive,
three out of four pet owners con-
sider their pet part of the family.
A few years ago, pet insurance
may have ranked last on the list of
insurance policies.
Recently, veterinary science has
advanced. New technology and
treatments for your furry family
member could create monstrous
bills.
It is safe to say you would do
just about anything to save your
pet, including spending thou-
sands of dollars.
A survey conducted by the
American Pet Product Manufac-
turers Association concluded that
Americans are expected to spend
nearly $11 billion on veterinary
care in 2008. That would be an 8.5
percent increase from 2007.
If you have a dog or cat snug-
gled up on your couch right now,


maybe it is time to look into a pet
insurance plan.
Do your homework
Pet coverage can cost up to
$6,000 over the life of an average
pet, and chances are you will never
need to spend that much for treat-
ment.
It might be worth it, though.
Dog owner Regina Hill believes
in the importance of purchasing
pet insurance.
"I learned the hard way," Hill
said. "If you don't go for the most
expensive plan, you'll never have
enough coverage for your pet if he
gets sick."
Your best bet is to do the
research and speak with your vet-
erinarian for the best plan for your
canine or feline.
Prices rise the older your pet is,
so do not wait. Some pet insurance
companies do not cover pets that
are older than 9.
"Sam (her toy poodle) is no
longer a puppy," Hill said. "The
monthly bill to ensure his life as
long as possible is worth it to
me."
Visit petinsurance.com for a
free quote on monthly coverage
for your pet by Veterinary Pet
Insurance.


Good news
The Human-Animal Bond Sur-
vey by Harris Interactive conclud-
ed that almost half of pet owners
would consider taking their pet on
family vacations.
Well, there is good news for that
45 percent.
Progressive. the auto insurance
company, now extends collision
coverage to your cat or dog for free.
With Progressive, if you can use
collision coverage, you can use pet
injury coverage for pets you or
your relative have.
If your dog or cat is injured in an
accident while riding with you,
Progressive will pay up to $500 to
help with veterinary bills and
medicine.
Keeley Garris, a Venice-area
Gifford-Heiden Insurance agent,
thinks this new, additional cover-
age could be very useful.
"Progressive is an innovative
company always striving to stay
ahead of other companies," Garris
said. "It does not surprise me that
they would be the first to come up
with this."
It would not be a surprise if
other insurance companies follow
suit.

world over" will be displayed at
the Francis T. Bourne Jacaranda
Public Library. Some photos
from that display are included
on this page.
Byler, a Venice resident and
occasional contributor to the
Venice Gondolier Sun, also is an
ardent supporter of the Jazz
Club of Sarasota and its endeav-
ors.
His love of jazz and the cou-
ple's joint passion for travel
have filled their home with
thousands of photos as well as
jazz memorabilia.
"Bob has an immense


archive of photos of jazz people
and marvelous knowledge
about every person he has seen
over how many years,"
Academy Award-winning
("Moonstruck") composer Dick
Hyman ofVenice said. "I respect
him highly and use him as a
resource."
Byler has a master's degree in
journalism from the University
of Missouri in Columbia and a
Ph.D. from Bowling Green State
University in Ohio, where he
taught for a time. He worked for
companies such as Caterpillar
and Reynolds Metals, worked
for several newspapers and did
some TV work in Peoria and in
Evansville, his wife, Ruth, said,
Yet jazz was always his pas-
sion.
"He loved it even before we
got married," she said.
That was on June 28, 1959,
which also was his 29th birth-


day. The ceremony was con-
ducted by Byler's father, a
Baptist minister. The wedding
was at Barry, Ill. They met in
Peoria.
With three children in quick
succession there were days
when Ruth did not share her
husband's love of jazz.
"I resented it for a while," she
said. "We had three children."
Today they have seven
grandchildren and two great-
grandchildren. Their older
daughter, Rena Breeding, lives
in Colorado and has five chil-
dren. Son Greg lives in Venice,
where he teaches guitar and the
youngest, Diane Pasley, mother
of two, lives in Wisconsin.
Next year they will celebrate
their 50th anniversary.
Jazz continues to be king.
Byler has columns in virtually
every issue of Mississippi Rag,
which is one of the most popu-

lar jazz resources, according to
Hyman. Once in print, it is now
a Webzine. Go to www.missis-

name Byler will bring up many


mances.
"We both like to travel," she
said. "Our house is a giant file
cabinet and everything in it is
his."

American countries in 1997. The Indians built boats for the Kontiki adven-

that it had "the highest elevator in the world."

articles on concerts as well as
jazz greats he has written about
since his first article in that
magazine back in 1974. He has
written liner notes for albums
and contributed his knowledge
to several documentaries on
jazz.
When you read his articles
you come away with more than
a review of what someone
played. You also learn about the
men and women who make the
music that is Byler's passion.
Ruth said their home is filled
with jazz-related items plus
other collectibles.
"He has thousands of hours
of live videos," she said. "He
also collects old newspapers
and stamps."
But it all comes back to jazz.
He has has traveled to 50 coun-
tries, watching some of the

Byler is already working on a
display of his jazz pictures to be
shown during the Venice Jazz
Festival Sept. 27-28 at the
Venice Community Center. That
event also will feature a free jazz
concert, from 3-5 p.m. Sept. 27,
at nearby Blalock Park.

In an article that

In an article on

hold:
* K10762 Q95 07 A986
Partner opens the bidding with one
heart. What do you respond?
A Your hand is clearly worth two
bids, so there is no reason to raise to
two hearts immediately with only
three-card support. Respond one
spade. Depending on developments,
your real problem could come on the
next round.

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
14 Pass 2c Pass
30 Pass 3V Pass
What action do you take?
A You have shown at least nine
cards in the two suits you bid, and
partner has shown no liking for
either. His two heart bids promise a
six-card suit so, since you have a
known eight-card fit, raise to four
hearts.
Q 3 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

Partner opens the bidding with one
spade. What do you respond?
A You certainly have the suit quali-
ty for a jump shift to three diamonds,
but your overall strength is not good
enough you need a prime card
outside your long suit as well. Be
content with a response of two dia-
monds. After all, a two-over-one
response shows a pretty good hand.

4B SUN NEWSPAPERS


A Those who elect to rebid two
clubs because they have a goodish
five-card suit and only three-card
support for responder's major over-
look two things: First, there is the
possibility that partner might pass,
and you will probably have lost a
superior spade contract. And even
should partner bid again, how are you
going to convince him of the quality
of your spade support? Avoid the
problems by raising to two spades
now.
Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
*KQ109632 6 0 Void .KQJ105
Partner opens the bidding with one
diamond. What do you respond?
A Despite the enormous trick-tak-
ing potential of this hand, it does not
measure up to the requirements of a
jump shift it lacks defensive val-
ues. The correct way to describe this
hand is to start with a simple one-
spade overcall then jump shift in
clubs at your next turn.
Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
*A85 93 oQJ95 4KJ83
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
Pass 1 Dbl 1NT
What action do you take?
A The hand belongs to your side,
and it is your duty to tell partner that
right now. The way to get your mes-
sage across is to double. As with any
other double of a no-trump bid, it is
penalty oriented.

Newspaper tug-of-

race to the bathroom


DEAR ABBY
COLUMNIST


DEAR ABBY: I love your
column. Unfortunately, it
appears on the same page
as the comics and Sudoku
puzzle in our newspaper.
Every morning my boy-
friend drinks a cup of cof-
fee and then disappears
into the bathroom for a
good 15 minutes even
longer on weekends -
with your section of the
paper. Half the time I
never get it back, and if I
do it's never in fresh, crisp
condition.
Any advice on how I can
convince the male side of
our household to extend a
little more courtesy toward
those of us who like to read
Dear Abby before his
morning "duty?" I don't
even care if he leaves the
seat up. DESPERATE IN
DURANGO, COLO.
DEAR DESPERATE: It's
time to do some detective
work. If it's Sudoku your
boyfriend is after, cut it out
and tape it to the toilet seat
so it's ready and waiting for
him.
However, if MY column
is his guilty secret behind
that closed door, your only
alternative is to grab the
section first, beat him in
there and lock the door. In
a case like this, victory
belongs to the fleetest.
DEAR ABBY: My best
friend of 12 years, "Kim-
berly," has been engaged
to "Oliver" for about six
months, living with him
for four. She recently con-
fided to me that she does
not want to be married
and regrets ever moving in
with him. We both cried as
she told me everything
that has been going on.
She apologized for not tell-
ing me sooner how unhap-
py she was.
The next day, Kimberly
claimed she regretted say-
ing anything because it
made Oliver sound so hor-
rible. She said she had
failed to tell me the good
things he does to balance
out the bad. I remained
noncommittal and told
her I am always here to lis-
ten. I told her my rule is,
"Are the good times worth
the bad?" She said they
weren't, and she still does-
n't want to get married. But

she also insists she won't
back out or say anything.
What should I do? Now
that I know everything, it is
impossible for me to see
my best friend, who I love,
enter a marriage she her-
self says she doesn't want.
Should I keep my mouth
shut, or fight on her behalf,
since she refuses to speak
up? ADVOCATE FOR
HAPPINESS IN SEATTLE
DEAR ADVOCATE: Nei-
ther one. Tell you friend
that, feeling ambivalent as
she does, she and Oliver
should seek premarital
counseling from the per-
son who will officiate at
their wedding. If this mar-
riage is not to be, it will
become evident to all
three of them at that time.
