Code board gives leeway to



new owner of Venice tavern


SUN PHOTO BY JUSTIN FENNELL, jfennell@venicegondolier.com
Tavern On The Island had a new sign put in their window this Saturday, signifying new ownership. The new name
of the establishment is BIG'Z Tavern. The owners have yet to remove the old sign.

STAFF WRITER

Two separate cases of code
violations for construction with-
out a permit that the Venice
City Code Enforcement Board
brought againstVenice Trust and
Tavern on the Island are in
abeyance after a board meeting
Aug. 7.
The first case was resolved
after Code Enforcement Inspec-
tor Patricia Stuehler told the


board the case had been abated
since the necessary permit had
been issued. She recommended
that no fines be levied but said
the trust should be considered a
repeat offender and a $500 per
day fine be levied in the future if
a similar transgression occurs,
and the board so moved.
Diana Mier, board chairper-
son, told the new owner of the
tavern, Steven Kepecz, who was
sitting in the audience, that he
did not need to comment on the


Survivin


case since it was resolved.
Kepecz is buying the tavern,
located at 127 E. Tampa Ave.,
and changing the name to Big'z
Tavern and Pool Hall.
Kepecz talked to the board
briefly about the second case,
explaining that he, too, would be
doing renovations to the tavern,
and he intends to be in compli-
ance and do all the city requires.

Council's big week

Budget meetings, The Renaissance appeal, and abol-
ishing the airport board are just some of the issues
facing city council this week.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice City Council has a
busy week scheduled. It begins
Monday, Aug. 11, with an all-day
workshop on the draft city bud-
get. Another workshop is
planned for Thursday, Aug. 14.
Both take place in council cham-
bers at city hall and begin at 9:30
a.m. Public hearings on a draft
budget will be held at a later
date.
'Big box' appeal
A hearing on the appeals filed
over The Renaissance, the pro-
posed retail center at Laurel
Road and Knights Trail Road, is
scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 12,
at 1:30 p.m. in council cham-
bers.
Developer Waterford Laurel
Park North, LLC is appealing the
planning commission's denial of


a site and development plan for
The Renaissance. On Nov. 6,
2007 the commission denied the
site plan because it did not meet
design standards and wasn't
consistent with the original con-
cept plan approved. Later,
prospective retailer Wal-Mart
Super Center withdrew from the
project.
Marshall Happer III, who op-
posed the project, also appealed
the decision, presumably to pro-
vide himself an opportunity to
reiterate his opposition to the
project on behalf of some of the
residents at nearby Venetian
River & Golf Club. He submitted
a petition with 255 signatures
opposed to a "big box" retail
center "in the middle of a neigh-
borhood community village"
that is being planned.
Meanwhile, 600 pages of

Charlie Danka of Winslow LifeRaft Company demonstrates what to expect when a life raft is inflated.


What to do if you ditch an
aircraft or sink a boat in
open water.
BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Ending up in "the drink" isn't
what anyone expects when they
climb into an aircraft or board a
boat.
More times than not it's due
to an engine fire, said Charlie
Danka of Winslow LifeRaft Com-
pany, a Marine for 23 years.
Yet every captain and skipper
should be prepared for just such
an event.


Unbelievably, 92 percent of all
aircraft ditchings are survivable,
Danka said to a crowd of pilots
in a recent safety seminar spon-
sored by the Venice Aviation
Society, Inc. But only 65 percent
of occupants survive.
Why the disparity?
"They drown because they
have no life preservers, they suc-
cumb to hypothermia, or some-
thing eats them," Danka said.
"It's what happens after the
ditching. That's where people
don't make it."
He likes to remind boaters
and aviators that "you are not
a survivor until you've been res-
cued. Then you can write


your book."
Be prepared
The best way to survive,
according to Danka, is in a life
raft. But it's not as easy as it
sounds.
Could you deploy your life
raft with a face full of seawater,
no glasses on, perhaps injured
- and know how it works? If you
don't, Danka said, you're not
going to have 20 minutes to fig-
ure it out.
"Go home, read the instruc-
tions. Know what's in it. Does it
have a canopy or not? When was

Diane Penick, left, hands a check to Rev. Charles Gardner in the
amount of $1,035 to go toward the purchase of a new airplane for
Agape Flights. Dr. John Boeve looks on. Penick, with the help of
Venice Presbyterian Church, donated the proceeds of a 12-page book-
let of word puzzles, all relating to the Venice area, to Agape. The funds
will go toward rebuilding a plane that crashed into the Caribbean last
December. Both pilots survived the crash but the plane was totaled.


TRAFFIC ADVISORY AUG. 7
U.S.41, south of Bird Bay Drive to north of State Road 681, will
have lane closures in both directions causing delays near the
intersections at Laurel and Roberts roads after 9 p.m., Monday,
Aug. 11 through Friday, Aug. 15. The closures are due to the
installation of supports for massive overhead directional signs.
This operation also will require Laurel Road and Roberts Road to
be closed for undetermined periods at the points where they inter-
sect with U.S. 41.

Guidelines for
well owners
As a result of below-aver-
age rainfall amounts, some
area wells cannot draw
water from current ground-
water levels. Because sig-
nificant rains that would
raise the water table are
not expected soon, Sara-
sota County has issued the
following guidelines for
residents about their well
systems.
If you are losing water
pressure from a well that
cannot draw water, contact

LITTLE KNOWN FAMOUS FLORIDIANS
BY JOE "FASTHORSE" HARRILL





















HARRISON REED was born in 1813. He moved to
the nation's capital city in 1861 and was sent to
Florida by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863 to
deal with seized Confederate property. Reed was
appointed Florida's postal agent by President
Andrew Johnson in 1865, a position he held until
he was elected the Republican governor in 1868.
Two unsuccessful attempts to impeach him were
spearheaded by leaders of his own party. In 1875,
he became editor of the SemiTropical Magazine, a
southern agriculture and economic development
publication. Harrison Reed died in Jacksonville on
May 25,1899.


Division of the Sarasota
County Department of
Health, 861-6133.
The wells affected are
those of older construc-
tion with surface pumps.
No newer, larger-diameter
wells with submersible
pumps have reported any
problems.
Some wells can be
retrofitted with a sub-
mersible pump or can
have the existing drop pipe
lowered. Property owners
will need to check with a
licensed water well con-
tractor or a pump com-


pany to see if this type of
repair can be performed.
In some areas, residents
may be able to connect to
existing county water lines.

CITY NOTES

COMPILED BY NEWS
EDITOR GREG GILES

O'Neill pleads
not guilty
Diana Zales O'Neill, the
teacher charged with four
counts of felony child abuse
for incidents that allegedly
took place from Dec. 7,
2007, to Jan. 14, 2008, did
not appear at her arraign-
ment to hear the charges
brought against her but
through her attorney en-
tered a plea of not guilty
Friday. A special-education
teacher, she is charged with
abusing five profoundly dis-
abled children at Venice
Elementary School.
Mud slinging
CityAttomey Bob Ander-
son is recommending the
city settle over a dirty, off-
road incident.
Christopher Raney was
muddingg" with his pickup
truck in a city stormwater
retention pond in February
2006, according to a July 28
memo from Anderson to
city council. It caused
$34,000 in damage. The city
requested the full amount
in damages. Raney's insur-
ance carrier offered $1,000
to settle the claim. The
offer was rejected and
Anderson was instructed
to file an action against
Raney to recover the dam-
ages, Anderson said.


SUN NEWSPAPERS 3A


Raney and his insurance
carrier, Anderson wrote, have
now offered $25,000 (the cov-
erage limit) in exchange for
the release and dismissal of
liability. Council will act on
the recommendation at an
upcoming meeting.
Wishing well
Mayor Ed Martin sent an
atta-boy to city staff this
week via e-mail. It reads as
follows:
"I want to thank you for
your continuing excellent
efforts on behalf of the citi-
zens of Venice. I want to let
you know that the charter
offices and I are planning to
assure the continuing effec-
tive administration of the
City after Marty Black's
retirement. We appreciate
Marty's valuable service to
the city, his help during this
transition period and we
wish him well for his future
efforts.
"We will be asking the
city council to approve hir-


ing a 'search firm' for a per-
manent replacement. I
expect that will be consid-
ered at the next council
meeting. Meanwhile we are
also in the process of select-
ing an interim city manager,
including consideration of
people within the current
city staff, but discussions on
that possibility must take
place with possible candi-
dates.
"In organizing the effort
which will be necessary the
charter officers and I have
asked former City Attorney
Wayne Hall to provide logisti-
cal assistance. Lori Stelzer
and Bob Anderson are busy
with day-to-day responsibili-
ties and we felt Wayne had
the experience to be helpful.
He will be contacting associ-
ations of former city officials
for advice, etc.
"I know I speak for the
Council when I offer you our
support and appreciation.
Keep up the good work.
Sincerely, Ed Martin, Mayor."


Environmental Task Force

discusses comprehensive plan


BY JESSICA MILLER
INTERN
The Environmental Task Force held
its fifth meeting Friday afternoon and
made its dedication to an environmen-
tally friendlyVenice clear.
A special workshop has already been
held which involved revising the lan-
guage of the city's comprehensive plan
that directly relates to environmental
concerns.
The task force met for three hours on
Monday, Aug. 4, and shared their indi-
vidual input on specific elements of the
Compp plan," such as conservation.
Tom Slaughter, director of the
Planning and Zoning Department, said
city council should have their third draft
of the comp plan to the board in two
weeks.
The board then planned two more
special workshops in order to consoli-
date and come to an agreement on lan-
guage amendments.
Board Member Glen Compton
reviewed detailed amendments the task
force plans to offer in the draft comp


plan document.
Final adoption of the comp plan is
estimated to take place in March or
April of 2009.
Budget request
Slaughter explained to the board the
Planning and Zoning Department must
place the comp plan, land development
regulations and design-based standards
ahead of going-green initiatives and the
Environmental Task Force.
"To be honest, the budget of this
board is a 'want' not a 'need'," Slaughter
said. "In the future, I hope to see envi-
ronmental issues be at the top of the list."
Slaughter then advised the board to
make their voice heard at the next city
council meeting.
A formal motion was then passed to
inform city council about a proposed
budget the task force will need to func-
tion efficiently.
It was agreed that $2,000 would be an
appropriate budget for the board.
"I know we are aware that these are
tax dollars," Slaughter said.

Abolishing the
airport board
Also on Tuesday will be
consideration of an ordi-
nance to abolish the Air-
port Advisory Board.
Two weeks after the
request by city council for


resignations, only four of
the seven board members
have resigned, including
Martin appointees Walter
Hake and Jim Marble, and
members Jim Leis and
Kim Stephens.
Meanwhile, the Airport
Tenants Union at Venice
Municipal Airport is taking
a stand on the issue in
support of Mayor Ed Mar-
tin who characterized the
board of being a cheer-
leader for airport users.
"I would like to express
my appreciation to the
council and yourself on
the vote asking for the res-
ignations of the currant
(sic) AAB members. Hope-
fully a new group might
serve to the benefit of all,"
wrote Werner Meyer, pres-
ident, in a letter to Martin
dated July 30.
He also offered to con-
duct a new airport traffic
count based on a proce-

dure "in accordance with
the FAA manuals that we
have purchased." There
would be no cost to the
city, he said.
The mayor's request for
board resignations also
drew attention from the
national Airport Owners
and Pilots Association.
Airport board member
John Yurosko, one of those
being asked to resign, sits
on the AOPA board and is
an active volunteer with its
airport support network.
'Apparently, the Venice
City Council doesn't wel-
come honest advice from
its Florida citizens," wrote
AOPA in a recent newslet-
ter. "In a stunning slap to
the aviation community,
the city council has called
for the resignation of every
member on the airport's
advisory board. Members
of the board haven't al-
ways seen eye to eye with


CODE from Page 1A

"diligent" and following
the rules, Code Enforce-
ment Officer John Patek
recommended the case
be continued until the
Sept. 4 meeting of the
board.
"I am not asking for


the city council on airport
issues."
In a letter penned by
Heidi Williams recently,
AOPA senior director of
airports, to Martin, she
said, "Despite the fact that
the guidance of the board
may run contrary to the
opinions of those who ser-
vice on the city council,
the city would be well
served in maintaining the
current airport advisory
board members and act-
ing on the solid guidance
they have offered the city's
elected officials. Advisory
bodies like this should not
be filled with 'yes-men,'
but rather with individuals
who can offer the city their
expertise and good judg-
ment."
More agenda items
Also on the city council
agenda Tuesday are the
following items, according


fines now but want to
continue the case until

uing to monitor the pro-

OUR VIEW


Don't roll the dice with your family's safety


wo months after the noisy kickoff
to the "official" start of the hurri-
cane season, we may easily be-
come complacent about the safety of
our homes and our families.
That's a mistake, as many Charlotte
County residents learned four years
ago, Aug. 13. It's easy to do as storms
start up off the African coast and dissi-
pate in the western Atlantic. But as
demonstrated by the low-pressure sys-
tem that appeared suddenly off our
coast recently and the quick-forming
Hurricane Dolly, mid-season awareness
is critical.
Recently in these pages, Ed McCrane,
the emergency management chief for
Sarasota County, reminded readers of
the importance of planning for a wind-
blown emergency. It's a smart thing for
everyone to review their own level of
preparedness and make sure they're
ready for a storm.
Think about this:


Do you have a plan, just in case?
How about a backup plan?
Would you stay or would you go?
What factors would sway your decision?
If it's a go, where?
If you stay, how would you get your
home ready? Where would you stay in
the house? What happens to your pets?
Are you ready for a week without
power and food? What about water?
It's the job of emergency experts to
remind us of one big thing all Boy
Scouts know: Be prepared.
It's always wise to ready for the worst.
Have a plan. Be flexible. Be ready to act,
just in case.
Here are some practical tips.
Have a disaster kit at home. If you
look on county Web sites, they've got
plenty of suggestions. Remember, you'll
want to have some cash on hand. You
also want things like this:
Flashlights, a portable radio and
batteries. Lanterns and lamp oil.


Mosquito spray.
First-aid kit.
Toilet paper and toilet supplies.
Food that doesn't need refrigera-
tion: dry food, peanut butter, pasta and
rice, canned goods.
*Water. Buy extra jugs and keep them
in a spare room. It won't go bad.
Tools, like a hammer and nails, an
ax and crowbar.
Tarps and a tent.
You'll want a disaster kit that you can
put in the car quickly. Include:
Blankets.
Rain gear. Extra clothing. Extra
shoes.
Maps. Flashlights and extra batter-
ies.
Snacks and energy bars. Bottled
water.
First-aid kit. Jumper cables and tools.
Don't forget your pet. It's important
to have some items ready in case you
need them quickly:


Medical records.
Medications.
Pet food.
Carriers.
Beds and comfort items.
Remember also to prepare your
home. Don't put yourself into a position
where you're scrambling to protect your
investment two days before a storm
hits.
Makes sure your storm shutters and
plywood are ready to go up, just in case.
Trim trees and dead branches,
especially near the house.
Be ready to store or secure all loose
items outside.
Anchor anything that can't be
stored but might be picked up by a
strong wind.
Make sure your insurance policy is
up to date.
If we're lucky again this year, we won't
need any of this. But it is just a matter of
luck. Much better to be ready.


The economy isn't in

such bad shape after all


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


We've all been reading
about how bad the econo-
my is and how govern-
ment has had to trim its
staff to keep up. I figured
with all I've been reading
that the revenues were
falling off the charts but in
looking at the numbers,
that isn't the case. The rev-
enues are falling a little bit,
and if Amendment V pass-
es it will get much worse.
Also, if Bill Furst wins the
property appraisers race,
he has vowed to lower the
appraisals which will then
decrease revenues which
likely will bring about in-
creases in the ad valorem
taxes.
If you look at the finan-
cials for 2007, our most
recent year, the income to
the county was actually
quite handsome. There are
a lot of revenue sources
the county has from fuel
taxes to sales taxes to mos-
quito control levies. Prob-
ably the tax source that
most people hear about is
the ad valorem tax. This is
the revenue from your
property taxes. We had
been reading all the sad
stories, layoffs and such, so
we felt sorry for the county
government because last
year we got that huge (ha
ha) tax cut brought to us by
way of the homestead ex-
emption increase and
Amendment 1.
Well if we look at how
much revenue the county
received in ad valorem
taxes in 2007, we find that
not including the hospital
and mosquitoes, etc. that
it amounts to almost $203
million or up about $29
million from the year be-
fore. No wonder the com-
mission kept their string in
place of having lowered
the millage seven years in
a row. One surprising fig-
ure the Clerk of Court
Karen Rushing reports is
that the population in
2007 went up 2.2 percent
which does not include the
1.5 million tourists that
visit the county each year.
This will not continue as
Jim Todora has decreased
the evaluations pretty
much across the board.
That's just one segment
of the revenue our govern-
ment receives. For in-


stance, there are many fuel
taxes. There is a six-cent
local option fuel tax and
then a five-cent local fuel
tax and a 1-cent local fuel
tax. Those local fuel taxes
are not to be confused
with the state seven-cent
fuel tax to be used only for
mass transit or the consti-
tutional two-cent state fuel
tax that, who knows, likely
goes to Miami Dade. The
five taxes brought in
around $19 million. That
was down, although a little
surprisingly not as much
as you would expect -just
over 2 percent, and actual-
ly, the revenues came in
above budget. I personally
think it's good budgeting
to be conservative on ex-
pectations.
You would expect that
impact fees and permit-
ting fees and the like
would be way down. They
were down but not as
much as you might expect.
Impact fees were down
over $ 7 million which was
over 20 percent. Permit-
ting fees came in close to
$2 million under budget.
This sounds bad but is
offset by investment in-
come that was up almost
$19 million over 2006. The
fines you have been pay-
ing for speeding in the
construction zone in No-
komis and other places
added almost $4.7 million.
Our courts have been ex-
panding but so have the
fines which are up 19 per-
cent from 2006 and 58 per-
cent over 2005. You should
be watching for the boys
and girls in the green and
white cars.
The tourist tax went up
to almost $8.5 million
about a million increase
over the year before. It will
likely go up more because
of the 1-cent the county
commissioners added for
the Reds who said no
thanks we'll go to Arizona.
Then they may add more
for the Red Sox.
So the bottom line for
the year 2007 was that the
county received a few mil-
lion more than expenses
so the general fund bal-
ance has increased 15 per-
cent from $84 million to
$97 million. It's good to
have a rainy day fund be-
cause things can change
quickly whether by disas-
ter or the economy. More
than $14 million of the $97
million is set aside to pay
for unpaid but earned va-
cation. This whole area of
benefits is likely the big-
gest possible chance to
make further cost reduc-
tions.
The Budget for 2008
anticipates virtually the

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


What's that adage about good intentions?


Editor:
When someone's idea of what's appropriate or pleas-
ing, or when someone's measurement of my ability to
pay to maintain my home to his or her standards is at
odds with my reality ... well, let's get real here. That's
entirely too far, even for our political climate these days.
Please, let's all back way off this. I mean, has Ernie
really read this code? I have.
Go bury this international, onerous, fraught-with-
potential-for-abuse code where the sun don't shine. My
God, the abuse. Can't you see it?
Local officials with their own agenda (that never hap-
pens), residents ticked off at their neighbor (that never
happens) and let's not forget civic-minded passers-by
with too much time on their hands and an ax to grind
with the world (that could never happen).
And how about the government? Surely you can see
that. "Oh, we have a shortfall ... let's go fine some people
for weeds and irrigation stains!"
Do you want even this "benign" sort of power made
available to people? We would rue the day when the city
of Venice opened this Pandora's box.
And relying on the good common sense of people is a
ridiculous statement on its face. We're talking about
human beings frail and full of intolerance, greed and
God-only-knows what, in one measure or another.
I understand the good council member's intentions
are good; I do. But surely he can see this folly, even
through those rose-colored glasses.
Ernie, let's do lunch and talk.

Phyllis Stewart

Thanks for the
laughs, Ted
Editor:
Ted Koppel tried real
hard to smear Barack
Obama the other night on
"Meet the Press." Tried is
the key word it didn't
work, Teddy. He outsmart-
ed you.
See, Sen. Obama's logic
is far superior than Kop-
pel's, with Obama quickly
resorting to his primary


sources and evidence in-
stead of relying on sec-
ondary sources and tab-
loid journalism, as Koppel
did.
First rule of journalism,
Teddy don't rely on
what "he said" or "she
said." Don't take a snippet
of information out of con-
text and manipulate it -
you'll look like an idiot.
Educated Americans do
have the ability to listen to


Obama's speeches and
watch his actions the
primary sources and
then decide for them-
selves.
We don't need journal-
ists to tell us how to think
anymore. Educated Ameri-
cans watch the videos of
Obama with the troops.
Educated Americans watch
and listen to what he said
overseas in context. Ed-
ucated Americans watch
and read all of these prima-
ry sources on the Web.
We only watch TV for
entertainment, and "Meet
the Press" the other night
was entertaining. Koppel
made me laugh.

4/22 an accident
waiting to happen
Editor:
I had the opportunity,
along with several others,
to attend the news confer-
ence given by the Venice
Airport Business Associ-
ation. Thank you to Coun-
cil Member Ernie Zavod-
nyik for attending.
The president of VABAs
presentation was most
impressive. Nonpolitical
and nonconfrontational,
he dealt with facts and fig-
ures and showed a most
impressive video of what
pilots experience as they
take off or land on the
noise-abatement runway
you can see from the
Circus Bridge.


The VABA press release
speaks for itself, but what
struck me, and I hope
made others pause, was
the legal implications of
the message delivered. In
short, this runway is in
such a condition of disre-
pair it approaches one that
could be best described as
an accident waiting to
happen. Anyone watching
that video could surely not
have left with any impres-
sion other than it is swiftly
approaching dangerous to
utilize.
I would submit that city
council has now been put
on notice, as have the resi-
dents and taxpayers of
Venice, that an obligation
clearly exists to immedi-
ately take appropriate
action to resolve this prob-
lem. To do otherwise is to
ignore the threat to the
safety of pilots and to the
public, and to do nothing
will leave the city open to
severe criticism and possi-
ble litigation.

The decline and fall of racism in America


PETER REBMAN
GUEST COLUMNIST


The 1967 movie "Guess
Who's Coming to Dinner"
handled the then extreme-
ly touchy subject of inter-
racial marriage so deftly
that it became immensely
popular. Its vision of inte-
gration through romance
and wedlock, however, did
not match the general
expectation of the times.
Instead, the then pre-
vailing expectation was
that integration meant
neighborhoods composed
of white/black/Asian/His-


panic nuclear families liv-
ing in harmony. The mes-
sage the movie implicitly
conveyed was that interra-
cial marriage was a one in
10,000 occurrence.
Fast forward 40-some-
thing years and you find
that that traditional expec-
tation is under severe
stress. Interracial dating
and marriage are so com-
mon among the younger
generations that it has be-
come wholly unremark-
able.
Indeed, one can easily
imagine the son/daughter
of a comfortably mono
racial couple announcing
that he/she is going to
marry/elope with/live with
his/her true love whose
race is anything other than
the parents'. Furthermore,
they intend to buy/rent/
crash at a house/condo/
trailer/friend's place three
blocks over from the par-
ents.
That the parents in this


situation would react as
the parents in the movie
did is anybody's guess.
What's different nowadays
is that this situation is like-
ly to be repeated ever
more frequently.
One suspects that the
parents in the above sce-
nario are aware that some-
thing unforeseen is hap-
pening. Certainly the mut-
ed response to the resegre-
gation of neighborhood
schools around the coun-
try argues that people sus-
pect school integration
has taken an unexpected
turn.
But it may be too late
even for that. Young folks
aren't the only ones taking
up interracial relation-
ships. Even the older gen-
erations are getting in on
the act. The times are defi-
nitely changing and Dr.
King's dream may be clos-
er to reality than most of
us realize.
All this seems to be


coming to a sharp focus in
the person of Barack Oba-
ma. Certain it is that some
white people think he is
too black whereas some
black people think he is
too white. But it just may
be that his timing is im-
peccable.
While race may be a sub
rosa factor in the presiden-
tial election, kids studying
this period in American his-
tory 50 years from now may
wonder what all the fuss
was about. After all, they
will say, he was one of us.
According to Ecclesi-
astes, there is a time to
every purpose under hea-
ven. That doesn't neces-
sarily mean that everyone
will be happy with any
particular purpose whose
time has come.
If current trends con-
tinue, we may truly find
ourselves singing "Free at
Last" together in the not
too distant future. Those
who aren't happy with that

Cobblestone intersections a knucklehead idea


No value. Daily headlines remind us of county bud-
get shortfall and yet, the knuckleheads in charge have
wasted $3 million installing three cobblestone intersec-
tions in Nokomis. The first is at Albee Farm Road and
Colonia. The second at Albee Road and Route 41. And
the third is currently being installed and tying up traffic
at Route 41 and Colonia. While the cobblestones are slip-
pery when wet and traffic noise has been greatly
increased by the many expansion joints between cob-
blestones, concrete and asphalt, these new intersections
have absolutely no value than as decorations.
Meanwhile, that $3 million could have paid the annual
salaries of upwards of 100 employees.


Want ad. John Patten is
looking for a job and is
making a strong pitch to
Mayor Ed Martin to get the
city of Venice information


officer's position away
from Pam Johnson and
into his hands. Patten's
journalistic talents are well
known, so Ed Martin


might hesitate firing Pam
Johnson in order to hire
Patten unless this is going
to be payback time in that
Patten takes direct credit
for Ed Martin being elect-
ed mayor last fall.
Code blue. East of the
VFW on Venice Avenue
there are fields filled with
weeds that have not been
mowed in years. Also, on
Ridgewood Avenue at Bay
Indies, the fields are over-
grown, and again at the
Hampton Inn. They start-
ed developing the proper-
ty there and then quit, and
the property is overgrown.


Also, the pepper bushes
down by the Italian-Amer-
ican Club why aren't
those trees being remov-
ed? They're not native and
the state is spending a for-
tune to take them out, so
why are we allowing them
in the city of Venice?
Grape juice. I'm a
young adult and I like
young people to work on
my hair. They know what's
"in." Shops need older peo-
ple, too, who know how
seniors like their hair styled.
There's room for both. I
wonder if the caller criticiz-
ing the minister's shop has a
shop of her own. This
sounds like sour grapes to
me.


will have to watch from the
sidelines.
For the short term, what
seems to be in store is not
"Guess Who's Coming to
Dinner," but rather, "Guess
Who's Coming to Dinner
This Week."
The end of the world of
racism may come not with
a bang but with the peal of
wedding bells.
I can't imagine how we
could hope for a better
ending.

Edible scallops making a comeback


BY GERALD A.
ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

A scientific collaborative
effort to restore edible scal-
lops to southwest Florida is
about to be joined by resi-
dents with waterfront
property.
A team headed by Mote
Marine Laboratory and
including the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Research
Institute, Sanibel Captiva
Foundation and a com-
mercial shellfish company
has since 2003 been study-
ing ways to restore scallops
in the Gulf of Mexico.

231 W. Venice Ave.


According to Dr. Jay R.
Leverone, a staff scientist at
Mote, "a very remarkable
increase" in scallop popula-
tions has occurred in the
past three years from Tampa
Bay south about 100 miles
to Pine Island Sound since
the team began its work.
"Sarasota County obvi-
ously approves of what
we've been doing. So
they're going to do some of
the work themselves,"
Leverone said.
Two months ago, county
environmentalists began
enlisting residents with
property on Sarasota Bay to
host scallop-seeding sites.

Beginning this week, with
residents' permission,
county staffers began sus-
pending cages containing
50 to 75 live young scallops
in each from docks.
Each month hereafter
those residents have been
asked to monitor the scal-
lops. They will track growth
and survival rates. Scallops
spawn in late summer and
early fall, then float in the
water for a few weeks
before settling over sea-
grass beds, Leverone dis-
closed.
He suggested that fre-
quent checks by residents
to determine which scal-


lops are alive will encour-
age the re-seeding effort.
Scallops disappeared
from the gulf in the 1980s.
By spawning them in a
hatchery and raising them
there until they evolved
into larvae, Lerverone's
team was able to transfer
stronger scallops to the
water.
Leverone noted that
adult scallop populations
were 100 times greater in
areas where restoration was
being done by the team
than elsewhere in Pine
Island Sound four years
ago. Significant increases
were recorded at the same

"Look at the potential.
When there's no red tide,
we've seen a resurgence of
bay scallops. Healthy, vi-
brant scallops. They help to
enhance the vitality of the
water," he said.
"Who knows? If this
county-community addi-
tion to our collaborative
works, we may see a come-
back of oysters and clams
as well," Leverone said.
He predicted that the
total effort will soon allow
recreational fishermen to
catch scallops. But he does
not anticipate a commer-
cial fishery.

Vikings-Indians: One town, one program


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

It seems only natural that the
Venice Vikings Pop Warner
Football and Cheer Organiza-
tion would be in a symbiotic
relationship with the Venice
High School football program.
But until recently, that hasn't
been the case.
"It's been a strained relation-
ship," said first-year Vikings
president and midget division
Warriors coach Steve Hewitt. But
he and second-year Venice head
coach John Peacock are working
to iron things out.
Hewitt believes the past prob-
lems are based at least in part on
a competition for players. At the
ninth- and 10th-grade levels,
players are still eligible to play
Pop Warner football until they
begin work with the high school
program. Competition for play-
ers led to the butting of heads
between former leaders of the
two programs, he said.
Now Hewitt believes the com-
petition won't be an issue. The
Vikings and Indians plan to run
similar offenses and defenses, so
it won't matter which program
you're in because the material is
the same.
There are no cuts on the fresh-
man football team in high
school, so naturally not every-
body gets to play. In Pop Warner,
there are minimum play require-
ments similar to Little League
Baseball. Hewitt asked that some
of those players who need more
experience be sent to Pop
Warner to get it, rather than ride
the pine on the freshman team.
In the 1970s and 80s, it was a
natural relationship between the
Indians and Vikings. In those
days, most of the dads coaching
Pop Warner knew only one brand
of football: Jim Powell's brand.
Many of those Pop Warner
coaches played for Powell, who
still coached at Venice.
"I played football for Jim
Powell, so I adopted what Jim was
doing," said Mickey Lawrence,
Warriors coach from 1973-87.
"Our role was to number the
holes the same, the backs, the
linemen. Call the plays, a lot of
the plays the same."
Lawrence and the other
Vikings coaches did their best to
run a base set of two running
plays through each hole at least
once per game. Those two plays

were the base set for Powell's
offense.
"By the time they got to me
and by the time they got to Jim
Powell, those kids would have
seen every defensive alignment
possible against those two plays.
They could block them in their
sleep and run them in their
sleep," Lawrence said. "Other
than that, the guys were given
complete autonomy to do what-
ever they wanted to do. The only
thing I asked them to do, and
most of them were very good,


was just don't teach 10-year-old
kids how to beat 10-year-old
kids. Teach them how to play the
game."
Lawrence said that during
their run of seven consecutive
titles, Venice High School was
having some of its best years. "It
was a win-win for both sides," he
said.
But somewhere along the
way, the Vikings and the Indians
went down separate paths. With
a first-yearVikings president and
a second-year Venice head


coach, now the timing is right to
make amends. Peacock stopped
by the first day of Vikings prac-
tice to let the coaches know he
was available for support.
"I let them know that if they
ever wanted to, I would be
happy to sit down with any of
them and talk football or just do
whatever they wanted me to do,"
he said.
Peacock tried putting togeth-
er a coaching clinic for the Pop
Warner coaches, but was never
able to get everyone together at
the same time. He said he still
has plans for a clinic in the
future. The important thing,
though, is that Peacock has spo-
ken with Hewitt and given him
the Venice playbook. It seems
they have an agreement to use at
least some of the same plays
and, more importantly, use the
same terminology.
"It would be nice to see,"
Peacock said. "In a lot of suc-
cessful high school programs,
the younger Pop Warner-type of
programs run the same exact
offense, the same exact defense,
so it's not all foreign to these kids
when they get to high school.
That's what I would like to see
happen, but it's a work in
progress. Hopefully, we can get
to that base sometime soon
where we all are running the
same thing and calling it the
same thing and teaching it the
same way. That would be a great
thing."

Radial ""'I
tunnel
syndrome, a condition
that causes aching in the
forearm just below the
elbow, has symptoms that
can be confused with "tennis
elbow." It involves the radial
nerve, which runs behind the
arm and crosses the elbow on
the outside as it travels down the
Forearm into the hand. At the
outside (lateral) portion of the
elbow, the radial nerve travels in a
tunnel formed by the surrounding
muscles and bone. If the tunnel is
too small, the nerve can be
squeezed and begin to cause pain.
Repetitive forceful pushing/
pulling, bending of the wrist, and
gripping further stretch and
irritate the nerve. Effective
treatment may involve
removing impingements to this
nerve, which starts at the side
of the neck.

OCEAN from Page 1A
the last time it was in-
spected?
"It's like a parachute. You
can't test it before you use it.
It should be repacked by
professionals every two to
three years.
"You can't leave a life raft
creased in the same position
for years and expect it to
work."
Fear factors
For Danka, state of mind
is key to survival.
"If you go into a life raft
thinking you won't survive,
you won't," he said.
People have lived 119
days on the ocean.
Bill and Simonne Butler
survived 66 days adrift in the
middle of the Pacific Ocean
in a leaky 6-foot raft, braving
hunger, storms and sharks.
'A whale put a hole in
their boat. It's not what they
had in mind when they
woke up that morning. They
wanted to survive. You can
make it a couple of days in


the Gulf or the Caribbean,"
he said, but surviving longer
takes effort.
Here's how to cope.
Exposure
Exposure is a primary
danger.
"If you are shivering, you
might as well give up.
Hypothermia is a killer. A
survivor also has to keep
their cool, literally. Keeping
hydrated and out of the sun
should be top priorities.
Seasickness is a major con-
cern, even for long time
Maritime swags, since it
leads to dehydration."
A rule of thumb to go by
is "50 degrees equals 50
minutes until you are inca-
pacitated," said Danka.
Tests determined that
people suffering from hy-
pothermia in 50-degree wa-
ter couldn't even wave at a
passing boat or aircraft after
25 minutes. Coast Guard
rescues revealed victims
couldn't even curl them-
selves up into a ball or climb
into the rescue basket when


stricken by hypothermia.
To stay warm in the
ocean, Danka said, "assume
a fetal position and, if possi-
ble, cover your armpits and
groin, where heat loss
occurs. Huddle together if
necessary to conserve body
heat.
"If there are eight or 10
people, split into groups
then huddle together.
"Board a life raft as soon
as possible. A person loses
heat 26 times faster in water.
You are not going to warm
up the Gulf with your body
heat. Sooner or later you are
going to be 76 degrees."
Never give up
His message for pilots of
both aircraft and water craft
is the same.
In an emergency you
may not feel like being the
skipper of the life raft, but
you are still in charge.
Your passengers will be
"looking to you for guid-
ance. After all, you got me
into this.You are going to get
me out."


When there isn't a lot of
water you can drink, that's
a problem. You can go 30
days without food, but
only days without water,
Danka said.
If you didn't pack water
or a desalination pump in
your survival gear, you can
try to capture rain or even
condensation droplets.
"Never drink sea water.
Only a small percent of the
population can tolerate
that," he said.
Another trick to staying
alive on the open ocean -
staying uninjured.
"Something as simple as
a paper cut can, by the third
day on the ocean, swell up
and make you feel like you
want to cut off your arm,"
Danka said.
There is also dangerous
marine life to foil. Having a
life raft cuts that down sig-
nificantly.
"We've never had any-
body tell us a shark ate their
life raft. It's not really some-
thing you need to worry
about."


Going down
Even with a life raft, there
is plenty to consider. The
first moments in an emer-
gency are crucial.
"If you ditch an aircraft,
get your equipment out of
the aircraft first, and don't go
back for anything. That's
when it's going to sink...
when you go back," Danka
said.
And don't just pull the
inflate cord on the life raft
and toss it into the water,
since it could get caught in
the wind and sail awaywith-
out any passengers.
Don't forget that the raft
needs to be secured to the
aircraft or boat complete
with a releasable painter
line. As the craft sinks the
line is designed to discon-
nect using a 500-pound
break-strength weak link.
Once the raft is inflated,
deploy the sea anchor, if it's
not automatically deployed.
It's very important to the sta-


SUN NEWSPAPERS 13A

ability of life raft, Danka said.
Then adjust the raft
canopy, which acts as a sail
and protection from the ele-
ments.
Next, determine if any-
body is injured. Treat pas-
sengers for shock. Provide
first aid if necessary. Take
stock of all supplies.
The Butlers had to blow
air into their raft every few
hours for many of their 66
days at sea.
Want to get rescued
quickly? Danka encourages
investing in an EPIRB, which
sends an emergency signal
by satellite to the Coast
Guard when activated.
It's the single most
important piece of equip-
ment that can save your life.
Follow his advice, invest
in quality survival gear and,
if disaster strikes, you just
may one day call yourself a
survivor.

They keep coming back for more


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Back in 1973, Judy Richards
and her family heard about
Venice from friends.
They came for a week, stay-
ing at the West Wind Apart-
ments on Casey Key.
"My husband Brooke and
three kids and my sister, Carole
Ashworth, and her husband and
three kids and our mother
came," Judy Richards said. "We
all stayed in two of the two-bed-
room apartments there. Now we
take up the whole building, all
six suites."
"Now" is 36 years later and
those six children have grown
up, married and had their own
children, and still they came -
but for two weeks. One week
was not enough.
For a few years, Judy would
stay for a month "but it was too
hard to get back to the real
world," she said.
This year's family vacation
included 11 children, The
youngest was 10 months old
and represented the fourth gen-
eration of the family to vacation
here. Judy and Amanda's moth-
er, Mrs. Davies, was last there in
the summer of 1997 and died
the following October.
"She was determined to
come down for one more sum-
mer," Judy said.
The list included Carole and
Rufus Ashworth and their mar-
ried daughters, AmyWilson,
Amanda Hosking and Abby
Brent and Judy's children; Chris-
ty Steele, Elizabeth Koopman
and Brooke Richards Jr.
Family members come from
Stone Mountain, Tucker,
Decatur and Canton, north of
Atlanta. Judy was there with two
daughters a son and five grand-
children. The Ashworths were
there with three daughters and
six grandchildren.
All in all there were 15 adults
and 11 children. Most of the
men stayed a week and then
headed back to work although
Carole's husband Rufus
remained for the second week.
Judy is a widow.


SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL


Judy Richards and her family have been coming to Caset Key for 36 years.


"The men all play golf,"
Carole said. "There are dozens
of courses and they play all
over.
"Everybody loves the beach."
For proof, there is a line of
chaise lounges all in a row on
the beachside of the sea grass
behind the apartments.
"They read," Judy said.
"Usually they are lined up in a
row with their noses in books."
They also play Scrabble on
the beach and at night they play
cards.
The second week, when
most of the men are gone is
dubbed "Goddess week."
"This is my NewYear's,"
Carole's daughter Amy Wilson


said, "This is when my year
resets and is cleansed here and
then the kids go back to school.
It is my spiritual new year. I
wish I could bottle it up and
take it back for February."
The drive from Atlanta is
about eight hours and they load
up with library books before
they come.
This summer, Thomas
Bennett, 8, read 11 books and
still had time to learn skim
boarding from Max Smetts.
Carole said she does a lot of
cooking down here while Judy
and some of the others eat out a
lot, favoring the Sarasota Brew
Pub and the Casey Key Fish
House.


In 2003, Amanda Ashworth
married David Hosking on the
beach in front of the apart-
ments. After the ceremony, the
whole family rode in a rented
boat up to Ophelia's on the Bay
in Sarasota for the reception.
They had another party later on
in Atlanta.
"That was one more memory
to add here," Carole said.
This year, a fish fry at the
beach was one of the special
events for the memory book.
There also was Amy's fifth
anniversary and the Scrabble
marathon.
The Scrabble set may not last
another year, but, with or with-
out it, the Richards/Ashworth


clan will be back on the beach
at Casey Key, filling up the
West Wind apartments and its
lot with at least nine cars from
Georgia.
When they first came, they
rented from Bob and Bonnie
Smetts. Now they rent from
daughter Debbie Smetts, who
manages the apartments for
her parents, who live in
Colorado.
"It's our 40th year," Debbie
said.
Perhaps it should be called
the Richards/Ashworth/Smetts
reunion.

Polar bears, politics


and global warming


ical pandering by Big Oil's
powerful allies in Wash-
ington," The Wilderness


Society concludes, "and
not worth the costs that
future generations will


have to bear."
What will those magnif-
icent Arctic white bears


have to endure before
humans get some sort of
control on the habitat-


destroying power of green-
Please see POLAR, 6B


LARRY ALLAN
FRESH AIR
COLUMNIST


The polar bear is
unique among all mam-
mals in two ways. The first,
the fact that it's the only
four-legged land animal to
swim by propelling itself
exclusively with its front
legs while dragging its rear
legs behind, I find very
interesting, especially for
such an accomplished
swimmer.
The second unique
behavior, the fact that
polar bears stalk and kill
human beings, I find most
scary, especially if I'm in
their territory!
While we all would refer
to a white bear as a polar
bear, there actually are
white bears in the North-
ern Pacific region of Can-
ada which are a subspecies
of the American black
bear. That wonderful polar
bear fur is closer to being
colorless. It's hollow, which
adds to this bear's ability to
float and to its insulation
from the cold, as well as
giving polar bears camou-
flage by reflecting the color
of surrounding ice and
snow.
We hear a lot these days
about the plight of polar
bears. Politicians are ex-
pounding on the role of
global warming and its
consequences on our
Earth. "After months of
delays, in May the Interior
Department moved to list
the polar bear under the
Endangered Species Act,
acknowledging that loss of
sea ice caused by rising
temperatures threatens its
habitat," the Sierra Club
reported recently.
They continued, "The
ice melter: Officials are
vague about what they will
do to protect the bears, but
adamant that the listing
won't halt oil and gas
drilling in their habitat or
be used to promote green-
house-gas regulations.
A record number of oil
and gas leases were ob-
tained during President
George W Bush's time in
office, The Wilderness So-
ciety points out. According
to a scientific survey by
TWS, the oil and gas in-
dustry has 68 million acres
of unused leases right now.
That includes acreage in
Alaska's polar bear habitat.
If $4-per-gallon gaso-
line disturbs you, as it does
me, we should try to con-
serve its use. That way,
we'll get an immediate
response to the dual prob-
lems of oh-so-costly gas
and oh-so-horrible global
warming. It seems to me
that producing more oil
isn't the answer we need -
using less oil is the best re-
sponse, at least until we're
able to produce alternative
renewable energy sources.
"Handing over our last
remaining pristine lands
to the oil and gas industry
is nothing more than polit-

Support services help seniors


living with cancer


JIM MILLER
SAVVY SENIOR


Dear Savvy Senior,
What kinds of resources or
support services are available
to help seniors living with can-
cer? My husband is being treat-
ed for prostate cancer and has
become exhausted and very
depressed about it. Looking
for Help
Dear Looking,
Most people, when
they think of cancer sup-
port and treatment, think
of chemotherapy, radia-
tion and surgery. But
there's a lot more to fight-
ing cancer than destroying
cancer cells. Here's what
you should know.
Help is available
As the number of can-
cer survivors in the United
States grows to more than
11 million, so, too, does
the need for support ser-
vices to help patients and
family members deal with
the physical, emotional
and financial side effects
that can come with it.
Today, a variety of services
and programs exist that
can help with a wide spec-
trum of cancer-related
issues such as depression,
anxiety, fatigue, pain, fam-
ily and caregiving issues,
financial and insurance
concerns and more.
Depending on your
husband's needs, for
example, there are coun-
selors, social workers and
cancer support groups
that can help with depres-
sion, anxiety and other
psychological issues;
nutritionists and dietitians
to help deal with nausea,
loss of appetite, fatigue or
mouth sores; and physical
therapists, pain special-
ists, acupuncturists and
message therapists that
can assist with pain and
discomfort.
Finding services
To find out what kinds
of cancer support services
and programs are avail-
able in your community,
start by asking the clinic,
medical center or hospital
that's treating your hus-
band. His doctor or nurse
should be able to provide

you with referrals. Larger
health care or cancer
treatment centers usually
offer a wide variety of on-

However, if your hus-
band is being treated in a

may be more difficult. You
can also visit www.can-
cer.org, type in your zip
code and search for ser-
vices online.

Iron fights fatigue




from the inside out


SUZY COHEN, R.PH.
PHARMACIST

Q: I've been really tired late-
ly and my doctor thinks I'm
iron-deficient. I'm in my 60s and
I haven't lost any blood, so how
can this be? Should I take the
iron supplement he recom-
mended? R.D., Jackson, N.J.
A: Iron is sold over-the-
counter in supplement
form, but it's a naturally-
occurring mineral that's
made in the body. Even
though the World Health
Organization considers
iron deficiency the num-
ber one nutritional disor-
der in the world, I don't
frequently recommend
iron supplements for peo-
ple complaining of
fatigue. It's because most
U.S. citizens have an ade-
quate supply. Iron can be
hard on the gut, causing
nausea, cramping and
constipation.
Iron is necessary to
make a protein called
hemoglobin, which acts
like a tow truck and lugs
oxygen all over the body. It's
amazing that humans can
stash some iron away until
it's needed again, so you


might say it's recyclable.
And speaking of "going
green," your stool can turn
this color when you take
iron. It's easy to overdo iron
since it accumulates, and
because it's dangerous to
tots, always lock up your
medicine cabinets.
You said you were tired
in your letter to me, but
there are other symptoms
that could alert one to an
iron deficiency. For exam-
ple, you may have trouble
concentrating, or feel
cranky and depressed.
Having pale skin and a sore
tongue are dead giveaways.
You might have brittle nails
or be prone to infections
because your immune sys-
tem is weak. And your
heart may beat like crazy
with very little exertion.
Other conditions and
nutritional deficiencies
paint the same "picture," so
teasing out iron deficiency
from other problems is not
easy. If appropriate blood
testing finds that you are
legitimately deficient in
iron, then of course, this
nutrient will breathe life
back into you, very quickly
... in about two or three
months. Doctors utilize
many tests to determine
iron levels. Two fairly reli-
able blood tests include
"serum ferritin" or "trans-
ferrin saturation ratio."
Eating iron-rich foods such
as clams, oysters, mussels,
animal liver, beans, lentils
and pumpkin seeds can
improve levels, especially if


you drink orange juice with
it. The vitamin C in OJ bol-
sters iron absorption. As for
supplements, I prefer a
polysaccharidee" complex,
like Nu-Iron or Niferex.
Let's take a closer look at
who is most prone to iron
deficiency:
People who take drug
muggers of iron, such as
aspirin, butalbital,
indomethacin, doxycy-
cline, Pepcid, Zantac,
Questran, or Soma
Compound among others.
Women who experi-
ence heavy periods.
People who have a
minor perforation in their
GI tract because it causes
a slow and steady leak of
blood.
Pregnant women and
vegetarians.
People who have kidney
problems, especially if you
are undergoing dialysis.
People who drink a lot
of dark grape juice or red
wine. Animal studies sug-
gest these interfere with
iron usage.
Did you know?
Shampooing your dog
with neem soap may dis-
courage bites from
insects, ticks, fleas and
mange mites.

intended to treat, cure or
diagnose your condition.

Teens' visit protested


DEAR ABBY
COLUMNIST


DEAR ABBY: Our par-
ents make my sister and
me go with them to visit
our grandparents one Sat-
urday a month. They live
two hours away. We don't
like having to waste our
Saturday this way. My sis-
ter and I are 15 and 16, and
we're old enough to stay
home alone. When we are
there, all we do is sit there
bored while our parents
and grandparents talk.
Our grandparents show
no interest in us, even
though they tell our par-
ents how much they "love"
seeing us. Our parents say
our grandparents are not
in good health and may
not be around much
longer, so one Saturday a
month isn't too much to
ask.
The other day Mom
overheard us in our room
talking about how much
we hate having to go over
there, and she was furious.
She said we were selfish
and care about no one but
ourselves, and she had
better not hear that kind of
talk again. Please tell us


what you think. BORED
TO DEATH IN SAN FRAN-
CISCO
DEAR BORED TO
DEATH: Sometimes when
people grow older, they
lose the knack of commu-
nicating with younger
people. While visiting your
grandparents may seem
like a pain in the neck now,
when you're older you may
be glad that you did.
One way to bridge the
generation gap would be
for you and your sister to
show some interest in
THEM. Prepare a list of
questions to ask them
before you go to visit. You
might be pleasantly sur-
prised to find their an-
swers a fascinating win-
dow on the past, and give
you an insight about how
your parents were raised.

FINE WHINES


The few, the proud


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

Access to health care will
be a big issue in the presi-
dential campaign this year
and, unfortunately, it's
another of those extremely
complex issues that get
boiled down to their bare,
incorrect essence: Demo-
crats advocate "universal
coverage," Republicans ac-
cuse them of promoting
"socialized medicine."
Well, I've got news for
you, folks: The battle
against "socialism" is over
and you lost and won.
Estimates vary, but it's
agreed that millions of
Americans do not have
access to adequate health
care. Whether or not you
think they should, we really
ought to debate the issue
on its merits, instead of one
side waving a red flag and
pretending that resolves
anything.
Let's use this as a work-
ing definition of socialism:


the government spreading
the burden of providing
benefits to a relatively small
group of people among the
public at large.
Recruiting an army and
building roads, for exam-
ple, are things we cannot do
for ourselves, and that all of
us contribute to for our
mutual benefit, generally
not favoring one group of
us over another; that's not
socialism
Many of us can get and
pay for our own health
insurance, but making us
pay extra so that people
who can't are covered
would be socialism, under
our definition. So, call uni-
versal coverage socialized
medicine, if you want.
Note, though, that pret-
ty much anything that
doesn't benefit all of us
roughly equally could also
be put in that pigeonhole.
Medicare comes immedi-
ately to mind.
Yes, people on it have
paid into the system, but

all the rest of us do too,
and our money keeps the
system going, for the ben-
efit of a select few whose
ranks we may or may not
join. And Medicare isn't
even a needs-based sys-
tem: turn 65 and you're in.
Ditto for Social Security.
The Veterans Administra-
tion. Farm subsidies. The
Fannie Mae and Freddie
Mac bailouts. Student
loans. I could go on and on.


I'm not saying any of
these programs is good or
bad, just that in each case
the government takes
money from many and
gives it to few. If you find a
health-care program ob-
jectionable on that basis,
you should have the same
problem with them.
Unless, of course, you're
one of the few.

Go swamp walking


in the Everglades


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

It's time to go mucking
about in the swamp with
Clyde again.
Every fall, Venice's
world-famous photogra-
pher, Clyde Butcher, leads
groups of people on a spe-
cial tour of his favorite place
on earth the Everglades.
Known for his enor-
mous black and white
photographs of the Ever-
glades and other natural
sites, Butcher, whose stu-
dio is in Venice, lives on
the edge of Big Cypress
Swamp, where he has
taken so many of his prize-
winning photographs.
For several years, each
Labor Day weekend,
Butcher has volunteered
his time and expertise to
lead those interested in
wildlife and photography
on a walk into the swamp,
with the proceeds going to
environmental organiza-
tions. The event has grown
so popular that additional
guides have been added to

This is not the time to
wear your Sunday best.
Consider that you may be
up to your waist or chest in
water and your footwear
will be tromping and
sloshing through "muck"

Bring a change of
clothes for the ride home
too, unless you really don't

Walks last from one-

FROM NEWMAN PR

Underwater voyeurs vie
for spots to dive reefs in
the Florida Keys for the
annual coral "love affair"
sparked by the August full
moon.
This rare exchange of
reproductive cells fasci-
nates divers for the sheer
volume of white excretion
that seemingly fills the
Atlantic Ocean around the
United States' only living
coral barrier reef, which
parallels the island chain.
"It's pretty amazing to
see how it works," said
Dan Dawson, owner of
Horizon Divers in Key
Largo. "My wife sat there in
the sand for an hour and
all of a sudden saw the
coral secretion and then
saw it floating away."
According to marine
scientists, while corals use
multiple reproductive strat-
egies, nearly all large, reef-
building species release
millions of gametes once a
year in synchronized mass-
spawning rituals. These
spectacular displays allow
the stationary animals to
mix genetically and dis-
perse offspring over great
distances.
This method of repro-
duction, called "broadcast

spawning," enables the
immobile animals to send
their eggs and sperm into
the water in massive quan-
tities. When egg and sperm
unite, the resulting larval-
stage "planula" swims to
the surface to drift in the
current and grow. After
some time two days to
two months the planula
settles to the bottom where
it grows into a polyp. The
polyp grows into a coral
head by asexual budding
that creates new polyps.
Such a copious delivery
system also is believed to
maximize the chances of
fertilization, and at the
same time overwhelm
predators with more food
than they can consume.
The exact cues triggering
the annual phenomenon
remain unclear, but it is
believed to be linked to
water temperatures as well
as the lunar, tidal and 24-
hour light cycles.
Scientists' observations
indicate a strong connec-
tion between the coral
spawn and seasonal lunar
cycles. This year, the full
moon falls on Saturday,
Aug. 16, so divers should
make reservations with
local dive operators for


coral spawning night dives
three to eight days after
the full moon. The gener-
ally accepted schedule is
for branching corals (e.g.,
finger, staghom and elk-
horn corals) in the Keys to
spawn three to five days
after the full moon, about
two hours after sunset.
Star and boulder corals
spawn six to eight days
after the August full moon,
about three hours after
sunset.
Seeing coral spawn is
not a guarantee on the
trip, but divers in the Keys
journeying on night dives


have had good success at
viewing the spectacle that
many describe as an
upside-down underwater
snowstorm.
To learn more about
seeing the 2008 coral
spawn in the Florida Keys,

professional dive opera-
tors or dive in to www.

Can you tell the preteens and teens were enjoying themselves at Kids' Karaoke?


Joseph and Emma Gallagher sing
with their mom, Pamela, during
Kids' Karaoke at the Holiday House.

about another night of Kids' Karaoke.


Kids' Karaoke: Rockin' the house


CINDY GNEGY
COLUMNIST


Kids' Karaoke at Club
455 at the Holiday House
on U.S. 41 Bypass, is the
place to be on Thursday
nights. You can feel the
excitement and anticipa-
tion as preteens and teens
flip through the pages of
12,000 songs to choose
their favorites to sing. This
family-featured evening is
the brain child of execu-
tive chef and general man-
ager, Craig Berntsen.
"It's great that the fam-
ilies come out and that
the kids have a place to
express themselves," Bernt-


sen said.
Robyn Kozlowski said
her daughter Megan sets
aside other activities to par-
ticipate in Kids' Karaoke.
"She gave up a play date
to come here," Kozlowski
said.
"I love to sing," Daisy
Ryan said. "I sing all the
time."
Kids' Karaoke will con-
tinue until school starts.
With the success it has
achieved so far, it may
have to be a regular gig.
Smarter, richer youth
A family dinner and ice
cream social heralded
payday for the Laurel Civic
Association's Earning by
Learning reading pro-
gram. It also honored Teen
Empowerment program
graduates and signaled
the end of summer camp.
The event was held at the
Laurel Community Center
with more than 300 people
in attendance. The associa-
tion is a 501(c)3, not-for-
profit organization. All


activities are made possible
through grants, donations
and fundraisers. This year,
the Earning by Learning
reading program had 120
youngsters participating.
"I want to buy a birth-
day present for my mom,"
said 6-year-old Mya
Robinson about the
money she received for
reading 15 books.
Corey Corbett said
"Finding Nemo" was his
favorite book out of the 10
he read. "The shark is big
and scary," he said. "I'm
going to give money to
Santa Claus."
"I'm saving it," Anna
Lambert, 7, said emphat-
ically. She read 17 books.
The Teen Empower-
ment program received
volunteer assistance from
four interns from the
University of South Florida.
Each intern was given the
task of creating age-specif-
ic programs encompassing
topics of high blood pres-
sure, HIV diabetes and a
host of other topics.


"A great experience,"
said Lenford Sutton, an
intern with USF Gulfcoast
South. "Everyone brought
something to the table
from the different (cur-
riculum) backgrounds."
"We learned parenting
and life skills," said
Jasmine Gray. "We took
field trips to the hospital, a
bank, Habitat ReStore and
Ophelia's Pasta House."
"We learned what good
qualities are needed to get
a job, learned how to be
safe on the Internet, lead-
ership and teamwork,"
said Hannah Meredith.
"We wore an empathy
belly," Channese Harris
said about the vest that
replicated being pregnant.
"We had to pick up books
and see how hard it was."
"It gave me something
to do," said Nigil Chism.
Field trips were top on his
list of favorite things about
the program, but he espe-
cially liked the bike ride on
the Legacy Trail. "It's fun,"
he added.


Courtney Berntsen sings her favorite song by Taylor Swift.


David Barrett shows Pamela Gallagher which song he has
chosen to sing.


Brian Dickerson, left, and Brian Beltre, right, from Habitat's ReStore stand with the Teen Empowerment Program participants.
The ReStore donated school supplies to all the teens.


During intermission, Gil and Rhonda Nalley, DJs for Spotlight
Entertainment, kept things going with the Cupid Shuffle.

Six Steps to Success


l Tired of trying to make your way around
that old blender, bassinet, those bikes and boxes of
cast-off clothing? Schedule a garage sale to convert
those extra items into cash.


2. Ask your friends if they want to join in. More
merchandise means more shoppers and more money
for everyone.


3. Clean and polish your items. Fold clothes
neatly and arrange them by size and gender. Group
small pieces (like jewelry) together into plastic bags
so they're easy to price and display.


e Arrange for plenty of tables and hanging
items so you can display everything prominently.
When it's time, set up your sale so people can move
around easily.


5eMake a list of your best items, and then call
The Sun Classified to schedule your ad. Your ad rep
can help you create an ad that's sure to get customers
calling!


e. Through The Sun Classified, you'll send the
news of your sale to thousands of potential buyers.
So, get out your change box and get ready to sell!
