New school year brings many firsts


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

Brand-new shoes. Sharpened
pencils. Backpacks filled with
school supplies.
It's back-to-school time. Are
your kids ready?
There is an air of excitement
surrounding the first day of
school, Monday, Aug. 18.
For some little ones in our
community, it represents a first
time away from home as they
enter preschool or kindergarten.
For the rest of the students, it
is routine, but still, the first day


of the 2008-09 school year.
For many teachers, other in-
structional staff and school ad-
ministrators, it may mean work-
ing in a different school or
teaching a new class since the
school district made many
staffing changes due to state
budget cuts.
And for Dr. Lori White, the
first day of school marks the be-
ginning of her first school year as
superintendent of Sarasota
County School District.
Two new schools will open
their doors to students for the
first time, according to a district


news release: Suncoast Poly-
technical High School in Sara-
sota and Woodland Middle
School in North Port. In addi-
tion, Imagine School, a new
charter school in North Port, will
begin classes for students in
kindergarten through eighth
grade.
In total, the district is wel-
coming a projected 42,037 stu-
dents to its 55 schools for the
2008-09 school year, the release
said. Those numbers include
students in regular, alternative,
charter, adult education and
special-needs schools.


White said in the release that
"despite the current challenges
we face, this is still an exciting
time to be in public education in
Sarasota County." She cited as
challenges a lower enrollment
than expected and reduced
funding from the state.
"I am proud of our schools,
our administrators, our teachers
and, of course, our high-achiev-
ing students. We couldn't ac-
complish any of this without the
tremendous support we receive
from parents and the communi-

Lee Karr has been fighting for months to get neighbor Harvey Wasserman to remove part of his driveway from the
easement Gulf Shores residents use for beach access. Wasserman hopes to buy the land.


County board may decide


'The Wasserman matter'


What started as a neighborhood tiff has blossomed
into a full-blown battle over county rights to a beach
easement.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice resident Steven Was-
serman has one week to remove
driveway improvements built
over a public right of way, ac-
cording to July 23 e-mail from
Jim Harriott, Sarasota County
executive director of public


works, to members of the coun-
ty commission.
It's the latest in a series of
twists and turns by county offi-
cials uncertain what to do about
"The Wasserman matter," as
Harriott referred to it.
It all started a few years back
when Wasserman was granted a
right-of-way use permit to con-


struct a paver driveway over half
of Sunset Drive in the Gulf
Shores subdivision.
Wasserman's driveway is at
the end of the county road that
also serves as an easement for
Gulf Shores subdivision resi-
dents to access the beach.
It's also where neighbors
sometimes parked their auto-
mobiles that is, until Wasser-
man installed walls and exten-
sive landscaping and gated the

It's been a difficult nine
months but there are signs the
mayor, elected in November, may
have hit his stride.
At a media briefing on Friday
Mayor Ed Martin highlighted the
successful end of opposition to
Mike Miller's 73-acre develop-
ment on Laurel Road, and what
he referred to as "improved plans"
of Miller's downtown Tra Ponti
Resort and Hotel as proof that
those concerned about his "slow
growth" platform had little to
worry about.
Critics feared Martin might be
more no growth than slow
growth. But Martin says he is
proving them wrong.
He points to the city compre-
hensive plan, still under review,
where the amount of industrial
development is being increased
in some areas, as one indicator.
"I'm very pleased with some of
the progress we've made. We han-
dled a highly contested project"
with a satisfactory outcome,
Martin said of the Renaissance
project. "Both parties negotiated
in good faith.
"The pattern of developing (in
this city) has not been to sit down
with neighbors and work things
out. Since then, we have adopted
two ordinances requiring devel-
opers to do that.
"I appreciated Mike Miller's
efforts and those of the citizens in
not just locking into their posi-
tions, but working for a fair solu-
tion. Mike said to me afterwards
that the platform we ran on -
recommending such procedures
-worked."

be going more smoothly as well,
thanks to a $2 million windfall.
The windfall came after the city
switched from a city-run pension
system to the state retirement
fund for some of its workers. The
windfall was announced Thurs-
day, followed by council's decision
that it would no longer be neces-
sary to raise the village rate to bal-
ance this year's budget.
"I was very pleased that a vari-
ety of staff and experienced coun-
cil members complimented me
on the efficient conduct of the
meeting, one saying it was the
'smoothest' she recalls," said Mar-
tin.
Gone are the marathon city
council meetings that extended
well into the night.
The retirement of former City
Manager Marty Black had the
potential to cause greater confu-
sion, but staff members have
stepped up to the plate, said
Martin.
He applauded Interim City
Manager Nancy Woodley's orga-

Citizens premiums to rise three times


Time for school


BY TERRY O'CONNOR
STAFF WRITER

When the cap comes off, insur-
ance premium increases will
come one after another for at least
three years, according to Christine
Turner of Citizens Property In-
surance Corp.
That's bad news for its
1,180,908 policyholders in Florida.
"We're going to have to get to
the point where we're more actu-
arially sound," Turner said.
It's scary to consider Citizens
Property Insurance has $439 bil-
lion in exposure in the state,
Turner said, but that's down 12
percent from $500 billion last year
and not as bad as it looks on
paper.
"Florida would have to be
destroyed for all those damages to
come due," she said.
The Legislature first froze the


state-sponsored property insur-
er's rates in January 2007 and Gov.
Charlie Crist and the Legislature
later extended the rate freeze until
Jan. 1, 2009.
Turner projected a 5 to 10 per-
cent annual premium increase for
at least three years when the state-
imposed cap expires.
Nearly 200 people heard the
costly premium projections re-
cently at the West Florida Chapter
of Community Associations In-
stitute breakfast program at
Plantation Golf & Country Club.
State Rep. Ronald Reagan, R-
Sarasota; Jeffrey Grady, CEO of the
Florida Association of Insurance
Agents; and Turner took turns
answering questions from the
crowd.
Reagan, an insurance agent in
the private sector, said the premi-
um problem can be blamed in
part on the Legislature.


"What the Legislature did last
year was pure politics," Reagan
said. "What we did was not in-
surance. It was rate relief. We
threw actuarially sound rates out
of the window"
The Legislature also created a
$250 million fund designed to
attract insurers into the market.
Thirteen new carriers came up with
$25 million in matching funding to
enter the market, he said.
"That took 199,000 policies out
of Citizens," Reagan said.
"The government has to stop
telling everybody that insurance
companies are concentrated
evil," Grady said. "That would
help. The demagoguery has to
stop. The fact is, we can't live
without them. We have more
exposure than any other penin-
sula in the world."

LITTLE KNOWN FAMOUS FLORIDIANS ABC-7 WEATHER


BY JOE "FASTHORSE" HARRILL




















PAUL EPPLING is a "found-objects sculptor." He
has been creating original art forms from assorted
junk since he created a metal grasshopper in an
art class at Florida Presbyterian College in 1969.
Eppling's studio looks like an organized scrap
heap. It's his palette. He uses it for such creations
as the Security Lizard, a sculpture sitting atop the
Fleet Maintenance Building in St. Petersburg. The
Security Lizard is 30 feet long and contains 2 tons
of chrome auto bumpers, bulldozer wheels,
garbage truck parts, traffic lights and car win-
dows. The stainless steel globe at Sanderlin
Elementary School in St. Petersburg is one of the
latest of Eppling's many whimsical creations.

SCOPE sets summit follow-up


FROM SCOPE

The community is invited to
learn about local environmental
action on Tuesday, Sept. 9, from 5
to 7 p.m. at the Center for Arts and
Humanity, 1226 North Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota.
At the meeting, the five follow-
up committees from the Summit
for Environmental Action will
share their progress toward the
goals that were set at the summit
in late February.
The Summit for Environmental


Action was a day-long, communi-
ty-wide event that brought more
than 150 community leaders
together from diverse fields to
come to consensus on action
goals to improve our local envi-
ronment. Since then, more than
60 residents have been working in
committees to implement each of
the summit goals.
Goals include developing alter-
nate water sources, offering
incentives for low-impact devel-
opment techniques, increasing
solar water heater use, attracting


sustainable and green businesses
and expanding transit-oriented
development.
At the Sept. 9 meeting, atten-
dees will have a chance to meet
with committee members and
hear short presentations from
each group.
To RSVP, call (941) 365-8751 or
e-mail Kate Irwin at kirwin@

Amendments face last-minute attacks Permit process


By Steven J. Smith
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County Com-
missioner Joe Barbetta is
upset.
The reason: Two pro-
posed charter amend-
ments governing the
timetables, judicial review,
signature expiration and
financial impact of future
charter amendment peti-
tions have come under fire
just short two weeks before
theAug. 26 ballot by area cit-
izens groups, including
Sarasota Alliance for Fair
Elections, Citizens for Sen-
sible Growth in Sarasota, the
Better Government Asso-
ciation, the Council of Nei-
ghborhood Associations
and the Siesta Key Asso-
ciation, to name a few.
"The two amendments
we thought as a commis-
sion were relatively harm-
less, were well-intenti-
oned and (passed with) a
5-0 vote," Barbetta said.
"Nobody showed up at the
(June 11) public hearings
to speak (against them).


All of a sudden, all hell
breaks loose."
Bill Earl, board member
of Citizens for Sensible
Growth in Sarasota, obj-
ected on the grounds that
the stakeholders who origi-
nally endorsed the ame-
ndments within a consen-
sus group, of which he was
a part, were left out of the
drafting process.
"Some major new provi-
sions were added, which
negatively impact the pub-
lic interest," Earl said.
"Specifically, there's a two-
year time limit on signa-
tures. Right now there is
none. Even the state of
Florida's Legislature allows
four years for a constitu-
tional amendment deci-
sion."
Kindra Muntz, president
of Sarasota Alliance for Fair
Elections, agreed.
"The problem parts of
these amendments were
not discussed at the June 11
meeting," Muntz said. 'And
poison pills were added in
the background."
Perhaps the worst of


those was the two-year
lifespan on citizens peti-
tions, which the supervisor
of elections could simply
"sit on, letting them age,
grow old and die and not
be usable for any initiative
to proceed," she said.
Muntz said the judicial
review process mandated
by the amendment could
bankrupt citizens groups
trying to keep their initia-
tives alive in court.
"If this amendment had
been in place, our paper
ballot amendment would
never have been on the
ballot," Muntz said. "The
chamber of commerce is
upset, business groups are
upset, environmental gro-
ups are upset, everybody."
"For them to come out
now and paint us as if we
were involved in a nefari-
ous plot and had sinister
motives, that's why I'm
upset," Barbetta said.
Barbetta urged the citi-
zens groups to "be fair and
at least circulate (our fact
sheet), which addresses a
lot of the misstatements


and misinformation," he
said.
The sheet, obtained
from the county, assures
that the county commis-
sion's authority to seek
judicial review of a pro-
posed amendment "has
no effect at all" on the sig-
nature expiration period.
In addition, pre- and post-
election challenges to a
proposed amendment are
"routinely expedited by
the courts because the
issue is time sensitive."
Earl believes all the
stakeholders in the initia-
tive ought to go back to the
drawing board
"I don't think this was
intentional at all," Earl
said. "I just think (the bal-
lot language) got over-
staffed and a few things
got tacked on.
"It was a big lack of
communication between
the pubic sector, the busi-
ness sector and the coun-
ty. It's unfortunate, but we
have to go forward from
here."

on planning agenda


STAFF REPORT

The Venice Planning
Commission will continue
its consideration of a
streamlined permit pro-
cess this week.
Assistant City Attorney
Wayne Hall gave the com-
mission an overview of rec-
ommendations by the Arc-
hitectural Review Board at
its last meeting. The recom-
mendations are intended
to streamline the permit-
ting process and result in
fewer applicants seeking
waivers of rules that govern
the city's Historic District
and Venetian Theme
District.
Commissioners had
some pointed questions
and raised concerns in


particular about changing
the threshold that triggers
full compliance with city
design standards.
The meeting takes
place Tuesday, Aug. 19, at
1:30 p.m. in city hall, 401
W. Venice Ave.
Also on the agenda are
consideration of site plans
for:
HomeBanc, request-
ing drive-through opera-
tions.
St. James, a 16,400-
square-foot retail complex
near the corner of
Pinebrook Road and East
Venice Avenue.
801 E. Venice Ave., five
lots east of U.S. 41 Bypass,
for a 5,000-square-foot
building proposed for pro-
fessional office use.

OUR VIEW


Send Nancy Detert back to Tallahassee


T here's one certainty about the
Florida Senate District 23 race:
The winner won't be Lisa Carlton.
Due to term limits, Carlton has to step
down after a distinguished career in both
houses of the Florida Legislature. Re-
publican voters, however, can take heart
from the fact that two experienced legis-
lators are waiting to take her place.
Vying to represent District 23, which
encompasses most of Sarasota County
and part of Charlotte County, are Nancy
Detert and Michael Grant.
Detert held the seat in House District
70, representing most of Sarasota
County for eight years (succeeding
Carlton) and before that served on the
Sarasota County School Board. She ran
unsuccessfully for Congress in 2006,
after term limits forced her out of the
Florida House.
Grant currently represents House
District 71, which includes parts of Sara-


sota, Charlotte and Lee counties. In his
second term, he decided to seek higher
office rather than run for re-election.
While we respect Grant's abilities and
record, we think the choice here is clear:
Send Detert to the Senate.
Ideologically, the candidates are fair-
ly similar. Both call themselves conserv-
atives, favoring reduced government
spending and lower taxes. They've both
owned small businesses and know that
side of working with the government.
They see eye to eye on a number of
issues, identifying the state's economy
as the major concern of their potential
constituents; favoring additional prop-
erty tax relief; and supporting drilling
for oil in the Gulf of Mexico (though De-
tert says that reflects a change of posi-
tion for Grant).
There are some telling differences
between them, however. For example,
Grant is in favor of seven of the nine


proposed constitutional amendments
that will be on the ballot, opposing only
the so-called "tax swap" amendment
that would radically change school
funding sources (and that was removed
from the ballot Thursday, but could be
reinstated) and an amendment that
would require spending 65 percent of
school funds in the classroom.
Though we think he's right on those
two amendments, we believe that
Detert, who opposes all of them, really
hits the mark we need to stop tinker-
ing with the state Constitution, espe-
cially when it's to address issues the
Legislature lacked the political courage
to deal with.
Such candor was Detert's hallmark in
the House, where she was honored by
more than 20 groups for her work on
behalf of housing, museums, libraries,
schools and business. And it didn't make
enemies; she was selected to serve on a


number of key committees, and chaired
those on commerce, tourism and chil-
dren and family services.
Her record demonstrates stronger
leadership than Grant's does, and her
platform is stronger as well. She advo-
cates using state housing funds to help
put people in homes, dealing simulta-
neously with the need for affordable
housing and the glut of houses on the
market. She wants to use "green" incen-
tives to encourage builders to be envi-
ronmentally sensitive and save energy.
She would push to include financial lit-
eracy in the school curriculum.
Grant also had some good ideas -
more regional planning, more trans-
parency in county and city budgets -
but Detert has the bigger, clearer vision
for the state.
We recommend Nancy Detert for the
Republican nomination for Senate
District 23.


Don't forget


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


While Marty Black has
ended his active duty at
Venice City Hall, he is still
on paid leave until around
the first of November. I
think now he is doing
some hiking with the fam-
ily or some such great fam-
ily vacation activity.
Before he gets away for
good, it would be good for
someone to do an exit
interview, a routine kind of
activity with important
jobs. While I guess every-
one supposes they know
why he is leaving, and like-
ly are at least partially
right, it would make sense
that we find out for sure.
When Dr. Gary Norris
left the first time, the
school board actually had
a session with him to air
the problems. I don't think
we need to make a circus
out of it, but the personnel
department head or may-
be Lori Stelzer ought to be
asking the questions. Of
course, Marty will not
want to be too negative be-
cause the firm he is going
to does a lot of work
through city departments.
We certainly don't want
to repeat this again, so that
we become the place no
one wants to come to. One
of the questions any appli-
cant would ask is, why did
the previous manager
leave? Saying to the appli-
cant "I don't know" or
"There was a conflict of
personalities" might not
be enough. He or she
wants to know what to
expect.
Is that person going to
be told what to do in
minute detail on, let's say,
the airport? If the answer is
yes, he or she might just
run away from the oppor-
tunity. There certainly is
some evidence that cer-
tain council members are
spending way too much
time in the departments of
the city, in some cases giv-
ing instructions.
I'd guess someone
would rather come in to
this situation without mess-
es such as the Sunshine
Law questions, and with-
out the soap opera at the
airport- not forgetting, of
course, short-term leases,
the comp plan and a bud-
get.
There have been times
that we have lost people in


the county and the city,
and their time had come.
David Bennett, the one-
year school superinten-
dent who tried single-
handedly to mess up the
school system, and John
Wesley White, the county
administrator who forgot
there was a South County
and was just too abrasive,
are two good examples.
Even former city manager
George Hunt had hidden
things and got the city into
bad situations and needed
to go. This, however, was
not the case with Marty
There is no question that
Marty, with his back-
ground, knew growth issues
and supported growth.
That likely was at odds with
some of his new bosses
and strained their working
relationship. However, I
thought they worked well
through the comprehen-
sive plan. It is the airport
that has divided the coun-
cil and the city and made
us look bad.
When the mayor gets a
new layout plan for the air-
port from a citizen and
wants to go to the Federal
Aviation Administration
without the city manager
or advisory board being
involved, it is obvious the
wrong kind of relationship
exists.
Sue Lang opted not to
meet with the city manag-
er like all of the other
council members do. They
all meet with him to know
what he is doing and to
give input before he goes
too far. They might give
him some things to look
into, maybe something
that the city might investi-
gate. Sue almost never did
this. That is not a working
relationship. Is this what
the new manager is going
to be in for?
The process by which a
new manager is chosen
will be critical. While get-
ting a head hunter is the
normal way this is done, I
just wonder if they might
want to advertise the job
through a wide variety of
sources, including all of
the state and national
cities organizations, get
applications and see if the
caliber is what they expect.
Certainly using a head
hunter will work, but at a
hefty price. I just think it
might be interesting to see
what we get on our own.
Head hunters have their
favorites; we might want
more choices than that.
After they have chosen
some prospects, it would
be good to do as MCC just
did and have the public
meet the top candidates
and be able to ask some
questions and talk to them
in some kind of a social

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Pro-airport, but anti-jet, anti-pollution


Editor:
Perhaps Bebe Teichman and Eddie Palmer have had
their comprehension abilities impaired by altitude poi-
soning.
Both are pilots and plane owners, residents of Golden
Beach and recently had misinformed letters to the editor
published. Both claim their airport opinion should
supersede others' opinions. Both erroneously imply that
there are many more supporters of their perspective
than otherwise.
First, and most important, the contrary opinion is not
anti-airport. It is very much pro-airport wanting a
safe, viable, well-run airport with respect for residents of
the whole community.
Second, as Ms. Teichman states, there are more than
300 homes in Golden Beach. Of these, I am aware of only
four pilots/plane owners: Mr. Palmer, Ms. Teichman,
Brett and Kim Stevens and former AAB chair Paul
Hollowell. There may be a handful more.
In addition, there is probably another very small
number of GB residents who have a financial interest in
growing the airport. This tiny group of biased individuals
wishes to impose their private agenda on the vast major-
ity of their neighbors.
These privileged few malign those with differing
opinions (the majority), and shamefully resort to inflam-
matory name-calling, like Mafia, Nazi, left-wing and
People's Republic, in a clear an attempt to subvert the
majority. The Gondolier Sun has been complicit in
advancing this attempt.
I guarantee that if bias were taken out of the reporting,
it would be clear that the public as a whole is against
unreasonable airport growth, more jets and pollution,
but decidedly pro-airport.
Joyce Ranalli
Venice


Some people do want
the airport gone
Editor:
Yes, Venice can close
the airport.
"No one wants the air-
port closed" is not true. I
now want the airport clos-
ed. In conversations about
the airport's future, many


people are neutral, very
few want growth and quite
a few, like me, would just
like to see it go away.
The following airport
closing arguments are
strong:
What kind of commu-
nity that controls unique
acreage from Gulf to


Intracoastal near its
beaches, hospital and high
school would develop this
public acreage into a jet-
port with industrial devel-
opment?
The threat of huge
condo/housing on this
acreage, if the airport is
closed, is phony. Name
one area where federal-
local governments have
allowed this to happen on
unique public acreage if
the community does not
want it. This won't happen.
The jetport is a health
hazard affecting all Venice.
Pilot age, toxic fumes, safe-
ty, noise, environment are
serious arguments for
closing the jetport.
Venice agreed to the
"burden of noise" should
be interpreted as Venice
agreed to manage noise
problems. "Characteristic
noise may be made by air-
craft" what is "charac-
teristic noise"? Jet noise,
fumes and helicopter noi-
se were not characteristic
noise in the 40s; therefore,
they should not be allowed
as characteristic noise
now. These definitely sup-
port closing the jetport.
Are there reverter claus-
es in agreements between
Venice and government
agencies concerning the
airport? If Venice chooses
to close, not maintain or
doesn't want the jetport,
where are we: courts, vote
- what happens?
Closing the jetport
should be considered by


all involved, including the
FAA.

LET'EM HAVE IT: TO BALANCE THE BUDGET, SHOULD VENICE CITY COUNCIL
RAISE THE MILLAGE RATE, TAP ITS RESERVE FUND OR CUT BACK ON PLANNED
PROJECTS AND SERVICES? CALL US AT 207-1111.

Finally, a call with some bite


Toothless. The person who left their dentures in a
box of Fixadent on Olympia Road it was found. It can
be retrieved at the sheriff's office on 776 if you want your
teeth.


One of 11. I just read
this wonderful article on
the young man, the junior,
at Venice High that is play-
ing football. I think that's
great, and I know the
coaches have worked very
hard to help this young
man get this far. My
thought though is, what
about the rest of the team?
I know this young man is a
once-in-a-lifetime player,
but what about the rest of
the team? The other boys,
the mediocre who don't
come up to this caliber,
that might be at the poten-
tial of a junior college
standout. What's being
done to those?
I don't read about any-
body on the Venice High
team but this young man. I
hope the coaches are not
neglecting other players.
Without his front line,
without his defense, he
wouldn't be where he is
today. I guarantee you
because it takes 11 men on
both sides of the ball to
play the game. I am a
Venice football fan and I
follow the game diligently.
Rerun. This is in regard
to the article on the flight
school saying it brings
money into the Venice
economy. It's my under-
standing that most of the
people that go there aren't
U.S. citizens and they
share apartments across
the street from the airport


and they do not eat out.
They eat what they get at
the store. They don't put a
lot of money into our
economy. Non-U.S. citi-
zens at the flight school -
we're just doing again what
we did on Sept. 11.
No gift. I always thought
Medicare was sort of an
insurance policy when you
got old. I don't always read
many of Mary Kay Rup-
pel's columns, but since I
started working at age 14
when I got my Social Se-
curity number in 1942, I
have paid into Social Se-
curity withholding tax and
Medicare for 62 years,
retiring in 2004. Give me
some credit for working
until I was 76.
I am not asking for her
to pay for my Medicare. I
feel that I have already
paid my way for 62 years. I
don't think that's called
charity.
Dumb deal. Now let me


get this straight. Our gov-
ernor has just signed a deal
that the state of Florida
would pay Warren Buffett,
as if he needs the money,
$224 million in exchange
for his company to prom-
ise to lend the state $4 bil-
lion if Florida is struck by
some remote chance (3
percent) by a major hurri-
cane this season. And if it
doesn't happen, he gets to
keep the $224 million.
Ouch!
People, have we totally
lost our minds? And I say
"we" because it is we the
public who keeps electing
these idiots. Folks, the
$224 million is not like an
insurance premium that
buys a policy saying that it
will pay you $4 billion for
damages. No, this is just a
loan, for Pete's sake, at 6.5
percent, no less. Since
when do we have to pay
someone $224 million just
to have the right to borrow
money? I don't know if
there has ever been a
dumber deal.
Bored. All those people
who write in those long,


boring letters to the Let'em
Have It column should
have guts enough to sign
their names and put it in a
letter to the editor. The
Let'em Have It column is
getting very boring. It used
to be a very interesting col-
umn for the paper.
Bent. "Inconsistent" ques-
tions where Bush's head is
because he said the high
price of oil is due to lack of
refineries. What was actu-
ally said is this causes the
high price of refined gaso-
line.
Then "Inconsistent"
states, "We are now being
told that if we drill in the
Gulf, we will be able to
lower our cost of fuel," and
continues, "however, the
original complaint of lack
of refineries will still be
there, so how is this going
to lower the prices of fuel?"
And then this person ad-
monishes Bush to stop
telling people lies. If "In-
consistent" were truthful,
it would be acknowledged
in the same and subse-
quent speeches that the
president also stressed the
need for more refineries
and also drilling in ANWR.
I guess if you are bent on
distorting the truth, you
won't let a fact get in the
way.
New use. The Venice
Arena, there's brush around
there and lots of pepper


bushes. Maybe we should
go ahead and use it as a
hangar. Take the bleachers
out and let the airport use
it as a hangar to store air-
planes. It might be a very
good use of the building.
You may have to reroute
the road around it, but it
would be an ideal area for
a hangar for airplanes.
Snobs. While I was
watching the early news
this morning, I could not
believe what I had heard. A
reporter had talked to a
lady, and she said that she
and her friends had decid-
ed that they would not
vote for someone with a
Muslim name. Is this what
they are teaching their
children?
Ladies, do your home-
work before you jog out for
your morning latte. What a
bunch of snobs.
Butt out. Well, Mr.
Vedder, you and the Venice

setting. This worked well
with the school board in
getting Norris, and I think it
would be helpful to those
making the final decision to
have citizen input.
In short, we need to find
out what is dysfunctional
and deal with it, or we will
be on a merry-go-round
that will get us the kind of

Payne Park

plan rox

With the prospect of a
new baseball stadium at
Payne Park on the table, it
seems more likely now
than ever that the Boston
Red Sox will land in Sara-
sota for spring training by
2010.
The Sarasota City Com-
mission is voting tomor-
row afternoon on a $4.8
million purchase of land
adjacent to the park. The
County Commission votes
Aug. 26.
Even if the purchase is
approved by a super
majority, that doesn't nec-
essarily mean a stadium
will be built. That's another
discussion for another day.
However, having a place to
put a new stadium has
been a major obstacle in
getting the Red Sox to
come to town, so getting
this chunk of land un-
doubtedly will go a long
way toward that end.
As always, there will be
people who don't think
that bringing spring train-
ing baseball back to Sara-
sota is a good idea. Those
people are just plain crazy.
Most of people the
detractors will be people
that live near the proposed
stadium. Without hesita-
tion, some of those people
are going to start jumping
up and down and scream-
ing about noise. They have
a point, because not only
are there more Boston fans
than any other brand of
fan they're also louder
and more obnoxious, even
when they aren't watching
baseball.

Deal with the
noise. It's a short
season.


But here's the thing:
This is spring training. The
Red Sox Nation is not relo-
cating. We're not talking
about 80 home games. It's
more like 15 games a year,
I think we can deal with it.
Besides, those currently
living near the proposed
stadium are currently liv-
ing near a strip club, which
would be torn down in
favor of a stadium. Per-
sonally, I think baseball is a
more positive influence on
the neighborhood's youth.
The next thing we will
hear about is the traffic.
Too many Bostonians
pocking their caaas in your
yaaaad. Once again, we're
talking about spring train-
ing here. A lot of people
deal with horrible traffic
every day when they drive
to work. We can deal with
this for 15 days out of the
year I know we can.
Here's the best part
about the new stadium -
we won't even have to pay
for it. The city and county
commissions have no in-
tentions to raise our taxes.
They want to fund this
thing entirely with tourist
tax dollars. The Bostonians
that haven't yet moved
down here full-time will be
pumping money into the
city's coffers, and the city
will be pumping baseball
into our lives.
Deal with the noise.
Deal with the traffic. It's a
short season.

Venice High School head football coach John Peacock says a few words before dismissing practice Friday morning. Peacock is in his second year as head
coach and says the bar has risen.




Peacock to raise the bar in year two


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice head football coach
John Peacock knows the expecta-
tions are high for his team in 2008.
It's not so much the expecta-
tions of those outside the pro-
gram as it is his staff's, his team's
and his own expectations in just
his second year has a head coach.
"I don't plan on losing. I would-
n't have said that last year. I
wouldn't have said we have a
chance to go undefeated, we were
just trying to turn the corner,"
Peacock said. "I feel good about
this year. I don't want to put any
expectations out there and say
we're going to go 10-0 and win the
state championship, but we've got
some good kids. We really do."
As a first-timer last season,
Peacock admitted he didn't know
what to expect. He would have


been just as surprised with an 0-
10 season as he would have been
with a 10-0 season. Now he says
he feels more comfortable as the
man in charge but, more impor-
tantly, he thinks his staff and his
team feels more comfortable with
him. They also feel more comfort-
able playing football.
This time last year, the Indians
were still installing their offense.
When you spend all your time in
practice learning plays and for-
mations, it can be difficult to learn
how to actually play football more
effectively. After a summer's worth
of workouts, Peacock says Venice
has implemented everything they
need to run the offense and the
defense. The big picture is in
focus, now they can work on the
little things that separate a good
team from a better team.
"We're able to practice our
playbook on a daily basis," he


said. "Instead of implementing
new stuff every day, we're just get-
ting better at our same stuff every
day. I think it's going to pay off.
We've got some great coaches
who are dedicated and have been
here all summer. The kids are ded-
icated."
This year there were more Iron
Man award winners than in any
year since Peacock has been
around as an assistant or head
coach. Players with perfect atten-
dance during summer workouts
earn the title of Iron Man there
were more than 60 of them this
year.
"We treated every day we
worked out as a practice. We went
eight weeks in the summer,
Monday through Thursday and
treated it as a football practice," he
said.
It's not like the offense is com-
plicated. Peacock said the Indians

are going to run basically the
same 10 plays all season, but they
won't look like the same 10 plays.
Having worked all summer on
installing different formations
and different looks, Venice hopes
to keep defenses off balance.
"We're going to look a little
more complicated this year, but
it's the same stuff," he said.
Peacock took over a team in
2007 that went 1-9 in 2006. He had
to teach that group of kids how to
win. They won some games, fin-
ishing with a 7-4 and a District 5A-
11 championship. Now it's time to
learn how to win some more.
"This year the bar has risen,"
Peacock said. "I know we can win.
They know they can win. Now, I'm
trying to teach them how to go
farther and win it all."

"S While "lrq,
drivers,
especially those who
drive for a living, may
suffer from back
problems, sitting for long
stretches in their vehicles
does not seem to be at the
root of their problems. So says
a study of identical male twins,
one of whom drove for a living
and the other who did not. Using
data from magnetic resonance
imaging (MRI), the researchers
studied whether the spines of the
drivers were any different from the
spines of their twins. Researchers
had suspected that the physical
stresses of driving, including
vibration, cause the spine to
deteriorate faster and displace
discs. However, to the surprise
of the researchers, there was
not even a hint of greater
degeneration in the drivers
versus the non-drivers.

nizational skills for helping
keep him on track. Some-
thing as simple as Wood-
ley's computer spread-
sheet to track council
member information re-
quests and new initiatives,
Martin said, has made a
huge difference, and al-
lowed council to see the
progress being made.
The way it was
Council appears to have
partly backed off a directive
that planning and zoning
staff not provide recom-
mendations on zoning and
other land-use petitions, an-
other indication that council
is regaining confidence in its
own ability to follow its
vision of growth inVenice.
Martin issued another
directive this past week -
this one aimed at develop-
ers. "They need to work
through (Planning and Zon-
ing Director Tom) Slaughter,
not me." Martin said. "It's a
little bit cleaner if things go
through staff."
Although face-to-face
meetings with developers
might be appropriate on
occasion, he said, "in the
general course of things,
that shouldn't be necessary."
Martin admits the transi-
tion caused by the election
necessitated getting per-
sonally involved at the time.
Now that there's a better
understanding of council's
intent, that's less necessary.
In the past, he said, there
has been the "impression
there was too close a rela-
tionship between city man-
agers and certain develop-
ers and even (developers
and) certain council mem-
bers. It's one of the reasons
I've decided to take myself
out of that loop.
"I feel the appropriate
process starts with Tom
Slaughter."

Turner admitted Citi-
zens was unprepared and
incompetent in handling
the unprecedented de-
mand placed on it after it
was created in 2002.
"We didn't do a good job
in 2004," she said of a sea-
son that brought Category 4
hurricanes Charley and
Frances and Category 3 hur-
ricanes Ivan and Jeanne.
Reagan said legislators
are unable to resist adjusting
the state insurance codes.
"It all starts with a good
idea," he said. "In reality,
it's messing with the mar-
ketplace. We're going to see
it again. I guarantee it."
Even three years of
promised rate increases is
a sign of progress, the pan-
elists said.

dead end, effectively mak-
ing it into an extension of
the driveway to his beach-
front home.
Neighbors called it an
illegal land grab. Wasser-
man said he owned the
land. Not so, say county of-
ficials who have stepped in.
At first county code
enforcement officials told
Wasserman to remove the
improvements. Wasserman
hired the Boone Law Firm
to intervene on his behalf
and negotiate the "surplus-
ing" of the property. That
would have allowed the
property to be sold to the
highest bidder at auction.
Apparently the county's
Real Property Division ini-
tially approved the deal,
according to an e-mail
dated July 11. In it Charlie
Richison, county supervi-


sor of inspections, told Lee
Karr, representing the Gulf
Shores Association, about a
tentative decision by the
division to "send letters to
all the residents informing
them that the county will
declare the right of way
there as excess property
and sell it."
That drew a strong
reaction from Karr, who
contacted County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub.
"It is our concern that
this unexpected decision
appears to have been
arrived at without due con-
sideration of the interests of
the several hundred people
who live in Gulf Shores,"
Karr wrote via e-mail.
"If the county does
indeed sell this property to
Mr. Wasserman, it would
be as though the people of
Alaska woke one morning
to find themselves occu-


pied by Russian troops
and instead of doing any-
thing about it (or even
talking with any Alaskans
about it), the U.S. simply
decided to solve the prob-
lem by selling Alaska to the
Russians."
Wasserman also at-
tempted to negotiate the
"vacation" of the right of
way, which would have
allowed the improve-
ments to remain in place
without transferring own-
ership of the right of way.
That, too, appears to have
been rejected by county
officials, although Wasser-
man has indicated that he
"may approach the Board
(of County Commission-
ers) regarding this situa-
tion," Harriott said.
"It is staff's position that
the property is not surplus
due to the historical rights
and use by the Gulf Shores


SUN NEWSPAPERS 11A

subdivision," Harriott said.
Wasserman had until
April 17 originally to re-
move the gated entrance
way or face fines of up to
$1,000 per day. The county
then agreed to series of
extensions while Was-
serman made his case to
purchase the property.
Since then code en-
forcement again notified
Wasserman of the code
violation and asked him to
remove "any and all ap-
purtenances installed on
the right of way including,
but not limited to, the gate,
columns, knee wall and
landscaping that blocks
the use of the right of-
way." That deadline for
compliance is Aug. 21.
Attempts to reach Was-
serman were unsuccess-
ful.

Canary Island date palms, also known as Texas Phoenix palms, are in danger of contracting
Texas Phoenix Palm Decline, which is spread by an insect.


Sabal palms, also known as cabbage palms, Florida's state tree, in an area from north
Sarasota to Pinellas County have been affected by the disease.

Mystery bug carrying new disease lead

threatens Canary Island date and work

sabal palms. of thT

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Scientists are hard at work
to identify the DNA of a
new phytoplasma that is
proving fatal to Canary
Island date palms as well as the
sabal palm, the state tree of
Florida.
"It is vectored (carried) by the
saliva of an insect," Environ-
mental/Commercial Horticul-
ture Agent Don Rainey said last
week. "So far the insect has not
been identified. The bacteria
cannot live in the air. It lives only
within the infected palm or in
the saliva or the gut of the
insect."
According to a paper written
by Jane Morse, University of
Florida/IFAS Pinellas County
Extension agent, the new dis-
ease was first discovered in the
Ruskin/Apollo Beach area two
years ago. The symptoms are
similar to one that causes the
lethal yellowing disease, which
also can be fatal to palms. Morse
said that disease also might be in
the area. The phytoplasma that
infects the Canary Island date
palms was brought from Texas,
Morse wrote in the paper.
"There was a major outbreak
in the Sapphire Shores area near
the Ringling Museum," Rainey
said. "Eighteen out of 110 trees
in that area were infected."
The higher concentration of
trees may have made it easier for
the insects to spread the disease.
"One tree by itself is probably


pretty safe," he said.
Diagnosis
An accurate diagnosis can
only be made by analyzing a
core sample from the trunk of an
infected tree, Rainey said, and
timing is critical. If taken too
soon, one could erroneously
think the tree is safe when a few
weeks later, the test might prove
positive.
Monica Elliott, the only palm
pathologist in the state, and
Nigel Harrison, an expert in phy-
toplasma research are the two

CORE SAMPLES
Obtain complete instructions from the county extension office. You
will need a portable electric drill and sterilized 5/16-inch diameter
drill bit or a carpenter's brace and brace bit, 1/2 inch diameter.
Send the fresh unfrozen sample in a clean Ziplock-type bag for
study. The fee is $75 per sample. Ship or mail within 24 hours to
the Fort Lauderdale center at IFAS, at 3205 College Ave., Fort
Lauderdale, FL 33314-7719 or to the Florida Extension Plant
Disease Clinic, University of Florida at IFAS, Building 78, Mowry
Road, Gainesville, FL 32611-0830.


had rotting roots and be more
likely to topple over, possibly
endangering people or animals.
Testing
A certified arborist should be
called to take the core sample,
although a homeowner who can
carefully follow instructions and
who has the proper tools, can
also do it himself. The test is $75
per sample, plus the cost of
mailing, and the arborist's fee if
one is called.
"The homeowner has to
decide if the tree is worth it,"
horticulture agent and Master
Gardener Bob Mertens said. "If it
is just a cabbage palm, it might
be better to just yank the tree."
If it is a costly specimen tree
such as a mature Canary Island
date palm, the cost of the test
and subsequent treatment
could be a good investment. Ac-
cording to information found at
www.datepalm.com/palm
info/canary.asp, there is as
much as a 35 percent chance of
tree loss when mature speci-
mens of these trees are trans-
planted. That could be another
reason for trying to save an exist-
ing specimen tree.
"If the test is positive, the dis-
ease is treated with OTC, an
antibiotic, which can be pur-


chased from TreeSaver.com, the
only company licensed to sell it,"
Rainey said. "Once you start the
treatment, you can never stop
because the disease could build
and overtake the tree."
Injections are given three
times a year. TreeSaver sells
homeowner kits that include a
dry compound, which is activat-
ed when mixed with water and
then must be injected into the
tree as soon as mixed. Morse
wrote in her paper that OTC also
can be used as a preventive
measure. The cost is estimated
to be less than $5 per tree per
treatment plus the cost of nee-
dles, syringes and such needed
equipment, if the homeowner
does it himself.
Areas affected
"Right now the disease is
regional," Rainey said. "It is from
north Sarasota to Ruskin and the
Apollo Beach areas. You can def-
initely see the decline in those
areas that have been affected."
Rainey said there was an out-
break of the disease in North
Port at Bobcat Trail but the
affected trees have responded so
well to treatment that there cur-
rently are no visible signs of the
disease.

Susan Haliburt is the
lead scientist of the group
trying to analyze the
insects, he said. She is with
the Division of Plant In-
dustry, the state agency
responsible for identifying
new diseases and pests.
Insect analysis
A few weeks ago, insects


that favor these trees were
captured for analysis,
something that can take
up to two weeks. And if the
scientists identify the DNA
of the disease in the gut of
an insect, they will then be
able to prove the way to
identify how it is trans-
ferred and eventually to
how to prevent its transfer.
The Texas Phoenix
Palm (Canary Island date


palm, native to the Canary
Islands off the coast of
Africa) is found only in the
states of Florida, Texas and
California, Rainey said.
"It is pretty exotic to
begin with," he said.
Unlike some horticul-
tural diseases, this one is
not passed on by dirty
tools, but only by the as-
yet-unidentified insect. As
there are plenty of other


problems that can be
spread by contaminated
pruning tools, people
should continue to steril-
ize trimming tools after
each palm is trimmed.
Trimming trees
Mertens cautioned
people to not trim too
much from their palm
trees.
"Never prune higher


than the 3 o'clock and 9
o'clock position," he said.
"So many crews leave only
two or three fronds at the
top. That puts a lot of
stress on the palm tree."
Morse advises holding
back on trimming sabal
and Canary Island date
palms in order to make it
easier to spot early symp-
toms of the disease.

Youth Opera
readies for
new season
FROM SARASOTA
YOUTH OPERA
Sarasota Youth Opera is
preparing for a busy 2008-
2009 season. This is the
most comprehensive pro-
gram in the United States
to introduce and involve
young people in the per-
formance of opera.
Opportunities for young
singers abound this year
and include a major con-
cert performance with a
professional orchestra as
well as a first-time collabo-
ration with Sarasota's Key
Chorale and the Sarasota
Film Society.
During the fall, singers
will perform in outreach
concerts throughout the
community. And on Nov.
23, Youth Opera members
will join with singers from
the Key Chorale to per-
form "Voices of Light," an
oratorio by Richard Ein-
horn, in the Sarasota Op-
era House. The piece will
be sung in accompani-
ment to Carl Dreyer's criti-
cally acclaimed silent film,
"The Passion of Joan of
Arc." This event is a unique
collaboration with the Key
Chorale and Sarasota Film
Society.
Youth Opera members
will be eligible to audition
for mainstage roles in
Sarasota Opera's Winter
Opera Festival. Young per-
formers will be needed for
a chorus in Puccini's "Tos-
ca" as well as a solo role.
Youth roles as supernu-
meraries, or on-stage ex-
tras, will also be available
during the four-opera fes-
tival.

planned May 2009 world
premiere of "Little Nemo

Safeguarding your


family's financial future


FROM NAPSA

Building a family nest
egg that won't crack could
require having something
known as term life insur-
ance.
A term life insurance
policy offers insurance
protection for a specified
term, or period of time-
typically 10, 15, 20 or 30
years.
People often use term
insurance to help secure
mortgage payments, wed-
ding expenses, college
loans, car loans and simi-
lar types of debt. Because
the policies pay a prede-
termined amount should
something happen to you
within a specific time
frame, they can be a good
way to help prevent long-
term-but not lifetime-pay-
ments from being passed
on to surviving family.
Choosing
term insurance
Fortunately, term insur-
ance can be a simple in-
surance product to re-
search and purchase.
Start by going online
and getting quotes for
similar policies from dif-
ferent companies. Be sure
to have your basic person-
al and health information

questions truthfully. Then
compare the quotes
against your needs. Here
are a few facts that will be
helpful to know:
Term premiums may
increase each year (known
as an annually renewable
term) or remain level for a
set period (called a level
term).
Term insurance is gen-
erally less expensive than
permanent (cash value)
life insurance.
At the end of the term
period, the policy may
contain a provision per-
mitting it to be renewed
without a medical exam,
although the premium
rate will probably be high-
er.
Some term life insur-
ance policies include an
option to convert to a per-
manent life insurance pol-
icy.
Traditional term life
insurance provides a
death benefit only; the
policies do not offer an

Traditional term life in-
surance provides a death
benefit only; the policies do
not offer an opportunity to
build cash value.

gage or a child's gradua-
tion from college. But they
might also provide more
affordable coverage for
people in a variety of situ-
ations.
For instance, if an indi-
vidual wants to purchase
term insurance but has
high cholesterol, a 30-year
policy may be too expen-
sive.
However, the individual
could be covered on a 26-
or 27-year policy that
might be a better fit for his
or her monthly budget.
Coverage
into retirement
Traditionally, term
insurance was seen as a


all young people age 8 (or
entering third grade in
2008) through high school.
These classes are im-
portant and students who
are interested in partici-
pating should attend all


vehicle to insure yourself
until you had enough fi-
nancial security to self-
insure. However, with
these new, more cus-
tomized term options, in-
surance can be affordable
well into retirement.
Coverage may also in-
clude expanded ages,
meaning consumers in
their mid-50s, 60s and
even people who are 70
years old can purchase
term insurance, providing
coverage into their 80s -
considerably longer than
most term plans currently
allow.
With people living long-
er, and working well past
65, the added coverage
can be a smart way to help
safeguard a second mort-
gage, medical or other
expenses people tend to
encounter later in life.

Improve your financial

fitness with direct deposit


FROM NAPSA

Most people think
about fitness in terms of
their physical health. Are
they eating well? Exercis-
ing enough? Getting plen-
ty of rest? But it's impor-
tant to consider financial
fitness as well. For senior
citizens and others who
receive federal benefit
payments, signing up for
direct deposit is an easy
first step.
Managing money
A recent U.S. Treasury
study shows Americans
identify direct deposit as a
key money management
tool. Yet, the study also
reveals that approximately
one in three Americans
still do not use direct de-
posit, including nearly
10.5 million Social Secur-
ity and Supplemental Se-
curity Income recipients.
'Americans clearly be-
lieve the reliability and
safety of direct deposit
help them to better man-
age their money," says
Judith R. Tillman, commis-
sioner of Treasury's Fi-
nancial Management Ser-
vice.
Staying safe
Achieving financial fit-
ness isn't just about keep-
ing a budget; for senior cit-
izens, it's also about safe-
guarding their money and


providing peace of mind.
In fiscal year 2007, nearly
60,000 Treasury-issued
checks were fraudulently
endorsed totaling an
estimated $56 million.
Direct deposit eliminates
the risk of stolen checks
and forged signatures, and
helps protect people from
identity theft.
Planning for unfore-
seen events is another
important part of staying
safe. People who rely on
paper checks for their fed-
eral benefit payments, for
example, can be faced
with a variety of challenges
when checks are delayed.
Last year, more than
140,000 Social Security
and SSI checks were de-
layed due to inclement
weather or other unfore-
seen events.
Making the switch
The Go Direct cam-
paign, sponsored by Treas-
ury and the Federal Re-
serve Banks, has made
signing up for direct de-
posit quick and easy. Cur-
rent benefit check recipi-
ents can sign up online at
www.GoDirect.org, by
calling the Go Direct
helpline at (800) 333-1795
or by visiting their local
bank or credit union.

tion is provided by the
Treasury and the Federal
Reserve Banks.

Q: Dr. Crosby, what impact
can hearing loss have on an
older person's life?
A: They may become sus-
picious of relatives or friends
who they believe "mumble"
or "don't speak up" on pur-
pose. Hearing loss can cause
older people to become more
isolated and can even put
them in harm's way if they
are unable to respond to
warnings or hear sounds of
impending danger. It is easy
to mistakenly call older peo-
ple confused, unresponsive,
or uncooperative just became
they don't hear well.

Dear readers,
This column is YOUR
column with folk remedies
sent in by you. Don't e-mail
me if your loved one starts
to take on the essence of
garlic bread or you catch
your neighbor digging up
your flower bed! Suzy
It wasn't passed down
from my grandma, but I
hope you'll print this any-
way because it works. I had
severe arthritis and now the
pain is almost completely
gone. I do two things: The
first thing is, I wash a pota-
to and slice it up (keep the
skin on); then I soak the
potato overnight in a bowl
of fresh cold water. In the
morning, I drink a cup of
the potato juice. I also take
baths in sea salt, about a
half cup of sea salt added to
my bath water. Amazing! -
PE., Lodi, Calif.


I had the worst case of
smelly feet until someone
told me to soak my feet in
warm water with some
apple cider vinegar. I do
that twice a week, and I
sprinkle baking soda in
my shoes; no more odor.
- E.P, Gainesville, Fla.
This is cheap and easy.
When you feel a cold sore
coming on, rub an ice
cube on the area for 15
minutes. Afterwards, dip
your finger in table salt
and press the spot for a
few more minutes. K.T.,
Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
If you get a nagging wet
cough and have to spit a
lot, drink Hyssop tea.
Squeeze a little lemon into
it, and some honey. This
will loosen all the phlegm.
- S.C., Decatur, Ill.
I used to have warts and
my sister recently got rid of
them with marigolds. She
had a garden of these
plants (I don't know all
their names) and she cut
the stems, squeezed out
the sap and applied it to
my warts. Like magic, they
eventually disappeared. -
N.G., Dallas, Texas
As a teenager, I had acne.
Mom made me rub peeled
garlic cloves right on the
pimples three times a day.
This worked very well, but


people thought I had bad
breath! -YD., Tulsa, Okla.
I had carpal tunnel pain
and I found some relief
from you! In a recent col-
umn, you gave a recipe for
ginger tea (for stomach
upset and nausea) and I
began drinking this
because I had chronic
bowel problems. It worked
for that, and interestingly, I
noticed that I could type
again, and even reduce my
ibuprofen dosage. Then I
started wearing a magnet-
ic bracelet that I bought at
the health food store, and
now I am 100% better!
Here's the recipe for tea:
Grate a teaspoon of fresh
ginger into hot water with
lemon and honey, add 1/4
teaspoon turmeric powder
spice. Steep it, strain it then
drink. J.P, NewYork City
For bad breath, eat one
avocado every day. It's
better with salt and lemon
on it, if you can't eat it
straight. I believe it cleans
the liver and stomach. -
B.W, Sanibel, Fla.

FRESH AIR


Journey into wilderness


LARRY ALLAN
FRESH AIR
COLUMNIST


My wife and I recently
completed a nearly 4,600
mile automobile trip -
no, not into some un-
known wilderness area, as
you might suspect of us,
knowing our interests in
wildlife and the environ-
ment, but along the East
Coast of the U.S. from
Florida into New England
and back. We actually trav-
eled through 11 states.
Happily, we visited chil-
dren, grandchildren and
grand-dogs (all are stan-
dard poodles). We also had
a chance to revisit old
homesteads, including our
former home in upstate
NewYork, which, Nirvana-
like, sat on 110 acres of
mature woodland on top
of the highest hill in our
county overlooking a
peaceful lake. While we
lived there, we had kept
our land "posted," and did
all we could to protect all
the wildlife that lived there,
including deer, foxes, rac-
coons, pheasants, grouse,
chickadees, woodpeckers
and more.
What a disappointment
that latter visit turned out


to be. The beautiful wood-
lands had been severely
damaged by a tornado
about four years ago.
Though some effort had
been made to clean up the
resultant mess, the only
permanent consequence
we could see was the hor-
rible series of trails that
had been cut through the
trees by large mechanized
equipment.
Our beautiful, serene
woods were gone!
It was a rainy, gray sort
of day. For us, that disturb-
ing discovery added to the
overall gloom.
Then, the sun broke
through the clouds. Things
looked a little bit better.
As we looked more close-
ly into the woods, we
spied a small brown,
spotted body curled up in
a spotlight of sunshine on
the forest floor a deer
fawn. Then another fawn
came gamboling up to
the first one, and together
they raced, in a playful
sort of "chase me" whim-
sy, off deeper into those
damaged woods. Our day
improved markedly right
then!
Just what is it about
wildlife in the wilderness
that can improve one's
spirits so rapidly?
To us, there's great
value in wildlife, which
is absolutely dependent
upon there being wild
places in which to live.
As a photographer, they
provide me with subjects
to photograph, and an
income. To my wife, writer
Jalma Barrett, they provide
inspiration and delight.


But beyond that, we
believe wildlife in wild
places provides all of us
with inspiration, awe and
increased meaning in
life. Wilderness areas
have always been part of
the appeal of America to
others around the world.
That's part of being
American, we believe, but
it's more than that, too.
We were delighted, our
senses thrilled, by the
miles and miles of beauti-
ful, lush green vistas -
trees, rolling hills, wilder-
ness, productive farm-
lands presented to us by
each and every state we
drove through on this trip.
Nature, especially
through wild animals,
provides us a kind of
peace and serenity that's
unmatched, that has
lasted down through the
ages, and that's inspira-
tional to humankind.
Perhaps through the
opportunity to experi-
ence wilderness and to
see wildlife in that natur-
al setting we can pre-
serve the world.
Ultimately, their preser-
vation, their existence, lies
within each of us.

Award- winning pho-

Smell the chocolate


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

When a town's nick-
name is "Chocolatetown,"
it should come as no sur-
prise that it might smell
like chocolate. Yet many
people who drive into
Hershey, Pa., for the first
time do comment on the
smell.
Whether the smell is
from huge vats of choco-
late simmering away in
some giant Willy Wonka-
type factory or not, that is
one of the nice things
about this town for choco-
late-lovers. The wonderful
odor might also be from
the mulch used in gardens
all around the city both
public and private for a
byproduct of the choco-
late industry is the cocoa
bean husks, which make a
really good mulch and
makes one's yard smell like
a wonderful big mug of
cocoa.
August and September
are good times to visit
Hershey.
For the ultimate splurge,
stay at the venerable Hotel
Hershey and indulge your-
self at its spa, which fea-
tures chocolate wraps and
facials and other deca-
dent-sounding treatments.
Swim in its pool and stroll
the grounds. This is a hotel
in the vein of one of
America's grand old hotels
like the Broadmoor in
Colorado Springs or the
Homestead in Hot Springs,
Va.
But, wherever you stay,
plan to spend time in the
Hershey Gardens, another
legacy to the life of the late
Milton Hershey. The gar-
dens have from from the
3.5-acre rose garden he
opened in 1937 to some 23
acres today. Roses (some
7,000 varieties) will still be
blooming in August and
September but the con-
stantly changing display is
beautiful at all times.
In addition to the rose
garden, there are rhodo-
dendrons, which flood the
area with spring color,
Japanese maples, many
specimen trees and in the
fall, chrysanthemums of
every hue plus late season
roses, annuals and orna-
mental grasses.
Also each fall, the gar-
dens celebrate an annual
community Gardenfest.
This year it will Sept. 14.
Admission will be free that
day from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Any time you are there,
enjoy the Butterfly house
and, if you have children

Sinking boat


insurance myths


FROM NAPSA

You don't believe in the
Loch Ness Monster. You
don't believe your friend
caught Jaws fishing off the
Florida coast. So why do
most boaters believe boat
insurance covers them
wherever they go?
Progressive surveyed
more than 1,000 boat
owners. It uncovered a
few insurance myths
floating around. Here's a
sample of the findings
and the facts behind
each:
Myth: Everyone pays
more for insurance because
of the hurricanes from a
couple of years ago.
Reality: Even though it's
believed by 74 percent of


respondents, it isn't true.
Boat insurers generally
price policies based on
claims in each state. For
example, Ohio customers
won't pay more for insur-
ance because of hurri-
canes in Florida.
Myth: Boat insurance
covers me anywhere I
decide to go boating.
Reality: Seventy-six per-
cent of respondents be-
lieved this one. The reality
is some insurers only pro-
vide coverage where the
boat is used most. Insurers
may limit coverage to 100
nautical miles of your
home port. Progressive
provides coverage virtually
anywhere you decide to go
in the continental U.S. and
Canada.

CINDY GNEGY
COLUMNIST


The 25th Annual
National Night Out was
observed Tuesday, Aug. 5, in
Laurel. Residents met at the
Laurel Community Center
to walk the neighborhood
with local law enforcement
personnel. Officers with
the community policing
and motorcycle units, the
mounted patrol and the
patrol bureau represent-
ed the Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office.
After the walk, everyone
gathered inside the Com-
munity Center for dinner
and to thank the officers
for their hard work.
"We know how well you


do your job and we appre-
ciate it," said Sandra
Terry, director at the
Laurel Civic Association.
While the traditional
"lights on" and front porch
vigils remain a part of
National Night Out, activi-
ties have expanded over
the years to include block
parties, parades, neigh-
borhood walks, safety fairs
and rallies.
National Night Out was
introduced by the National
Association of Town
Watch in 1984, according
to nationaltownwatch.org.
The program was the brain-
child of NATW Executive
Director Matt A. Peskin. It
was a night to celebrate
safety and crime prevention
successes and to expand
and strengthen programs
for the next 364 days.
During the first National
Night Out, 2.5 million peo-
ple, 400 communities in 23
states participated. The
program has grown signif-
icantly and during last
year's National Night Out,
35.4 million people in
11,310 communities from


all 50 states, U.S. territo-
ries, Canadian cities, and
military bases worldwide
participated.
National Night Out is
designed to strengthen the
partnership of neighbor-
hoods and law enforce-
ment and provides a visu-
al message that neighbor-
hoods are organized and
will not tolerate unlawful
activity. The residents of
Laurel made this com-
mitment years ago and
successes have been
numerous.
Hammering away
Habitat for Humanity
held a dedication for
another completed home
in the Laurel community
recently. Ruby Graham
and her grandson, Malik
Outing will soon be mov-
ing into their new home
on Scott Street, thanks to
many helping hands. The
dedication for the home
brought neighbors, part-
ner families, sponsors,
supporting organizations
and friends. The Reverend

Chapel Baptist Church led
the Litany of Dedication.
Ruby thanked those
that were a part of making
her dream of home owner-
ship a reality.
"I have met so many
people and have enjoyed
working with them,"
Graham said. "I'm not
going to stop; I'm going
to keep on working."
Judy Wilcox, executive
director of Habitat for
Humanity, expressed her
gratitude as well.
"We always hope that
our partner families will
continue working with us,"
Wilcox said. "They are an
inspiration to our volun-
teers and to new families."
Among the many house-
warming gifts given to Ruby
was a Bible presented by
Rosemary Daschiell a
member of Christ United
Methodist Church.
"I'd like to read what's in
the Bible no, no, I'm not
going to read the whole
Bible," Daschiell said,
laughing. She read the
inspirational inscription
written inside the Bible.


Joining in National Night Out are Deputies Tim Czachur and
Al Codina with the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office. The
deputies are with the Community Policing unit, which pro-
motes camaraderie by riding bikes within the community.

Since the month of August
is Cataract Awareness
Month I wanted to pass
along some information about
the subject. Beckie Reeves, the
marketing director for Jonathan
M. Frantz, MD, FACS, at Florida
Eye Health, was kind enough to
send me what they give to their
potential cataract patients.
According to the pamphlet:
Cataracts, which affect most
people over the age of 65, occur
as the natural lens inside the
eye becomes discolored and
clouded. Presbyopia the loss
of near, reading vision is a
condition that affects almost
everyone over the age of 50.
Intraocular lenses, or IOLs, are
lenses that replace the eye's
natural lens that is removed


Jennifer
Wadsworth
Feeling Fit Editor

during cataract
surgery.
Florida Eye
Health can provide the right
cataract treatment for your
individual lifestyle and eye
health. You now have several
options when selecting a lens
implant that fits your specific
lifestyle and eye health needs.
Here are some of the options:
Multifocal Implants
You may choose a
CustomLens implant for your
after surgery visual outcome
which will greatly decrease


your dependence on glasses
following surgery. With a
CustomLens you can read a
book, drive a car, and play
golf or tennis with increased
freedom from glasses. Among
the CustomLens IOLs cur-
rently offered at Florida Eye
Health are ReZoom, ReSTOR
and Crystalens.
Conventional Monofocal
Lens Implant
If you choose a monofocal
lens implant for your after
surgery visual outcome, you
may decide to have both eyes
corrected for distance vision
and wear reading glasses for
near vision or have both eyes
corrected for near vision and
wear prescription glasses or


contact lenses for distance
vision.
Monofocal Toric IOL
If you have astigmatism, a
Toric IOL makes it possible to
treat the cataract and correct
the corneal astigmatism at the
same time. If you have both a
cataract and a corneal astigma-
tism, you will not regain high-
quality distance vision after
surgery to remove the cataract
unless the astigmatism is also
corrected. The unique design of
this lens provides significantly
improved distance vision and
may reduce the need for cor-
rective lenses.
For more information contact
Florida Eye Centers at 239-418-
0999 or visit their Web site at
www.bettervision.net.

fi0r2 W.A. V.E. goodbye to distortion!

8i Latest progressive lenses dramatically increase

sharpness and comfort


Big waves are great for surfers. For progressive lens wearers, how-
ever, waves can be a real wipeout. Many people with older pro-
gressives, or bifocals, are frustrated by the visual distortion in-
herent in these lenses. Others are simply unable to wear them.
However, the latest versions, Varilux PhysioTM and Varilux
Physio 360TM with W.A.V.E. TechnologyTM, have taken progres-
sives to the next level, offering wearers amazing new levels of
sharpness and comfort.
"Many patients who have been unable to wear progressives in
the past have had great success with these Varilux lenses," ex-
plains John Bailey, Optician and Director of Optical Services at
Community Eye Center.

Curing the ripple effect
Waves or aberrations are similar to the reflections on a lake. The
waves or ripples on the water result in an imperfect reflection.
If the ripples are removed, the image is clear. This is the effect
Wavefront Advanced Visual Enhancement (W.A.V.E.) Technol-
ogyTM has on progressive lenses.
"Using laser the same type used in performing LASIK to etch
the prescription on the lenses results in a much more precise,
pristine view," says Bailey. "W.A.V.E. TechnologyTM translates


into brighter colors, sharper vision and increased
levels of depth and dimension."

.e "Many patients who
have been unable to
wear progressives in
the past have had
great success with
these Varilux lenses."
John Bailey, Optician
Director of Optical Services

The difference between Varilux Physio and Vari-
lux Physio 360 is that the W.A.V.E. TechnologyTM
is only used on the back of the lens with Physio. Physio 360
employs it on both the back and the front of the lens. "The
patient's eyecare professional can advise which type best meets
his or her visual needs," says Bailey.


Guaranteed satisfaction
Bailey says that many optical departments are still selling the
older technology. "The difference is amazing, but, unfortu-

nately, many pa-
tients don't even
know about the
newer products,"
he says. "We offer
a 30-day guaran-
tee, but most of
our patients don't
use it. We've been
selling these lens-
es for some time
now and I can't
recall the last time
someone was not
satisfied."

Help for our returning service personnel


Dear Dr. Joan,
This is none of my busi-
ness, but I am concerned
about the son of one of my
friends. He is a soldier who
just returned from active
duty. He just sits around.
He's not interested in golf or
other activities he used to
do. He has a quick temper
when things bother him.
This just isn't like him.

Your compassionate con-
cern about a fellow human
being shows that it is your
business. You want to help.
Yet, you're not sure what is
appropriate in this situation.
No matter how many years
you have lived on this plan-
et, you may not ever have
seen anyone reacting like
this. It is a new experience
for you and perhaps for him,
as well. What you may be
seeing could be what is
known as post traumatic
stress disorder or PTSD.
According to the National
Center for Post Traumatic
Stress Disorder, these symp-
toms and others affect


HAVG A

GARAGE SALE?


between 6 percent and 20
percent of returning veter-
ans of the Iraqi and
Afghanistan wars. While the
service folks check diligently
for these symptoms, they
may not show up until later.
As you know, war is a trau-
matic event. Even seeing
someone else in a life-
threatening situation can
trigger PTSD. People who
have gone through these
experiences can often feel
scared, confused or angry.
They often re-experience the
trauma in dreams or intru-
sive thoughts. It would not
be unusual for one to hear a
car backfire in civilian life,
and dive for cover because it
sounded like gunfire.
According to the
Diagnostic and Statistical
Manual IV of the American
Medical Association, other
symptoms of PTSD can be
flashbacks, irritability, diffi-
culty sleeping and poor con-
centration. These folks often
display restricted ability to


^ experience
emotions
and some-
times
appear
"numb."
N *a Panic disor-
DR.JOAN der and
ASHKIN, EdD, depression
LCSW, RN may accom-
pany the
other symp-
toms and
the person may be tempted
to try substance abuse as a
way to "feel better."
Even though they want
help, combat personnel may
be reluctant to talk about
their issues because they
may perceive "complaining"
as weakness. The "post" in
PTSD refers to the fact that
the symptoms often don't
show up until quite a while
after the trauma. By then, it
is frequently difficult to
make the connection.

Civilian doctors are often
the first to see the service
personnel since they are not
on a military base.
Consequently, the military
rely on the assessment skills
of civilian primary care
physicians to make sure
returning veterans get the
care they need.
When you're speaking with
your friend, let her know
that treatment is available
for those in need from the
military as well as from civil-
ian doctors in certain cases.
Perhaps she and her son can
go to her primary-care doc-
tor for help. Then, the pri-


mary-doctor can contact the
Veterans Administration.

The truth about comfort foods


Note to the readers of this
column: Those of you that read
this column know that Dr K
sometimes asks his alter ego,
Dr Bob to fill in. Dr K would
like you all to know that Dr.
Bob is not always the most
serious individual and that
you should not necessarily
believe anything Dr Bob
writes.


Dear Dr. Bob,
In these stressful times, are
there any more simple things
that can slow down the anxiety
I'm feeling. When I was a kid,
my Mom used to give us kids
'comfort foods' that were sup-
posed to calm us down and
make us feel better. Is there
anything to that?
P.J., Arcadia

Dear P.J.,
We all believe that certain
foods can offer us comfort,
solace or a sense of calming.
The ancient Greeks believed
that its oval shape had magi-
cal powers and thus wor-
shipped the eggplant as con-
veying spiritual strength.
Socrates ate eggplant every
morning until his last when
he substituted hemlock which
did not give him a mental
boost.
Studies of brain chemistry
have shown that certain foods
can cause our little gray cells
to produce certain happy hor-
mones that give us a sense of
well being. More recent data
suggests that it is the sound of
the food and what it conjures
up in our minds that is most
important in this neuro-
chemical process. This article


lists (within length con-
straints) various comfort
foods (or not) and the defini-
tive reasons why they work
(or not) to help us achieve a
sense of serenity, peace and
calm. You will note that some
foods, although considered
comfort foods, really cause
more stress to us, so watch
out.

Comfort foods: The definitive guide
(The not so authoritative listing of
foods to soothe or stress the soul)
Good comfort foods and why they're
good:
Chicken Soup Because your
mother said so.
Meatloaf- 'loaf' makes us think of
lounging and relaxing.
Macaroni & Cheese- Macaroni
was the name of Yankee Doodle's
feather and feathers are fun.
Cheeseburger- 'eese' in cheese

What to expect during your baby's first year


Baby's First Year
The first year of your baby's
life is an incredible opportunity
to witness all the ways in which
your child will grow and learn.
While the following is an
overview of all that is ahead,
parents should understand
that each baby is unique. They
learn and develop at their own
pace. There are "age appropri-
ate" toys and learning activities
parents can provide their baby,
however, the most important
thing to provide is a loving, car-
ing home.

Birth
During the first several days,
your baby will become more
alert. While seeming uncoordi-
nated and unable to control
reflexes, your baby is already
trying to understand how
things work around him. Your
baby can lift his head slightly,
move from side to side, and
react to bright lights and


sounds. Your baby will also rec-
ognize a human face.

First Months
Your baby no longer has that
"newborn look" and has better
control of reflexes and move-
ments. Great energy is demon-
strated when your baby thrusts
his legs and waves his arms
and hands all around. He
learns to roll over and can sit
up with support. And, your
baby is smiling at people, and
can recognize family.
Beginning to interact with
things around him, he makes
babbling and gurgling sounds
as he begins to develop lan-
guage.

Six Months
Your baby is now sitting up
and learning to crawl. He has
learned to roll over, and can
hold objects. He is also learn-
ing to hold a bottle, and sip
from a cup. During this exciting


time, he has also begun to
respond to his name and soon
will begin to play interactive
games like peek-a-boo and
blowing "raspberries."
Language development contin-
ues, and your baby will use cer-
tain sounds and cries for spe-
cific needs. If you have not
already "baby-proofed" your
home, do so now.

Nine Months
Crawling and sitting up with
ease, your baby is now really on
the go. Very interactive, your
baby is blowing kisses and
maybe even waving good-bye.
Your infant enjoys dropping
toys and then searching for
them. He can become anxious
when not able to see you. Your
house should already have
been baby-proofed, but watch
out for those sharp corners as
he starts pulling himself up in
preparation to walk.

First Birthday
Your baby may be taking
steps or even walking by his
first birthday. Some babbling
may include his first words. It is
clear he understands the word


"no," and uses it regularly. This
is a time to provide your child
with push-pull toys. Your infant
will also begin showing a pref-
erence for certain objects or
toys. Your baby's weight has

now tripled and he "helps" to
get dressed by extending legs
or arms, and by pulling on (or
off) hat and socks. He loves to
look in the mirror and see just
how cute he is. Take time on
your child's first birthday to
marvel at how much he has
grown and learned in the first
year.
Again, it is important to
remember every baby grows
and learns at its own unique
rate. But, if you have any con-
cerns or questions, be sure to
consult your pediatrician. Also,
there are community resources
which can provide you more
information about your baby's
growth. The Healthy Start
Coalition of Charlotte County
is one such resource.

and your baby, call a Healthy
Start Care Coordinator at (941)

Fawcett Memorial
Hospital receives
achievement award
Fawcett Memorial Hospital
has received the American
Stroke Association's Get With
The GuidelinesSM-Stroke
(GWTG-Stroke) Silver
Performance Achievement
Award. The award recognizes
Fawcett's commitment and
success in implementing a
higher standard of stroke care
by ensuring that stroke
patients receive treatment
according to nationally
accepted standards and rec-
ommendations.
"With a stroke, time lost is
brain lost, and the
GWTG-Stroke Silver
Performance Achievement
Award addresses the impor-
tant element of time," said
Jelden Arcilla, RN, Director of
Fawcett's Stroke Unit. Fawcett
Memorial Hospital has devel-
oped a comprehensive system
for rapid diagnosis and treat-
ment of stroke patients
admitted to the emergency
department. This includes
always being equipped to
provide brain imaging scans,
having neurologists available
to conduct patient evalua-
tions and using clot-busting
medications when appropri-
ate. Fawcett was the first hos-
pital in Charlotte County to
earn accreditation as a
Primary Stroke Center from
the Joint Commission
(JCAHO).
"Caring for a stroke patient
requires an incredible team
effort. From the time a patient
arrives at our door, our team's
focus is to treat that patient
quickly, effectively and effi-
ciently to improve the out-
come for that individual. Our
high standards and continu-
um of care have increased the
number of positive outcomes
for our patients, and that's
very important to the com-


munity," said Arcilla.
To receive the GWTG-Stroke
Silver Performance
Achievement Award, Fawcett
consistently complied for at
least one year with the
requirements in the
GWTG-Stroke program. These
include aggressive use of
medications like tPA,
antithrombotics, anticoagula-
tion therapy, DVT prophylax-
is, cholesterol reducing drugs,
and smoking cessation. This
twelve-month evaluation
period is the second in an
ongoing self-evaluation by the
hospital to continually reach


Photo provi
the 85 percent compliance
level needed to sustain this
award.
"The American Stroke
Association commends
Fawcett Memorial Hospital
for its success in implement
ing standards of care and pr
tocols," said Lee H.
Schwamm, M.D., national C

GWTG-Stroke uses the
"teachable moment," the time
soon after a patient has had a
stroke, when they are most
likely to listen to and follow
their healthcare professionals'
guidance. Studies demon-
strate that patients who are
taught how to manage their
ded risk factors while still in the
hospital reduce their risk of a
second heart attack or stroke.
Through GWTG-Stroke, cus-
tomized patient education
materials are made available
at the point of discharge,
based on patients' individual
t- risk profiles. The take-away

"The time is right for
Fawcett to be focused on
improving the quality of
stroke care by implementing
GWTG-Stroke. The number of
acute ischemic stroke patients
eligible for treatment is
expected to grow over the
next decade due to increasing
stroke incidence and a large
aging population," said Sandy
Morgan, RN, Chief Nursing
Officer.
According to the American
Stroke Association, each year
approximately 700,000 people
suffer a stroke 500,000 are
first attacks and 200,000 are
recurrent. Of stroke survivors,

later lost her ability to read.
Last Christmas, her grandson
came to visit her in her home
at a Sarasota assisted living
facility and brought his
Nintendo Wii bowling game.
While he played, she started
reading score cards and play-
ers names from the screen.
Evie's caregiver from Right
at Home in Sarasota reported
the news to the office. That is
when Michael Juceam, the
owner of Right at Home
decided to take Wii bowling
to a select group of senior
communities including some
specializing in memory care.
"The communities were
pleased to have us host the
games and offer use of our
Wii as a trial. It really caught
on once seniors found out
how easy it was to play," says
Juceam who along with
Regan Pruett, RAH's commu-
nity relations director, volun-


teer their time at each com-
munity, giving residents Wii
training. The Right at Home
team hosts each game in
their orange and black Right
at Home bowling shirt.
The communities on Right
at Home's Wii bowling circuit
include Bahia Oaks Lodge,
Beneva Park Club, Harbor
Chase of Venice, Pinebrook
Nursing and Rehabilitation,
Savannah Grand and Sterling
House and the number is
growing. Candice Paine,
another resident who has not
missed an opportunity to
play at her facility, has asked
to play Wii golf too, and says,
"these old people get com-
petitive, but I haven't seen
any fist-fight yet, they're truly
enjoying it."
Right at Home offers in-
home supportive care and
personal care assistance to
seniors and disabled adults
who want to continue to live
independently. Right at
Home directly employs all
direct care provider staff, is
bonded and insured, and
carefully pre-screens all care-
givers prior to their entering
a client's home.
The Right at Home office
serving Sarasota, Manatee
and Charlotte Counties is
owned by Michael Juceam,
who is President of the

Health Careers 101 at Peace River Regional Medical Center


Special to the Sun
On July 22, the Girl Scouts
of Gulf Coast Florida visited
Peace River Regional
Medical Center, their first
stop during a two-week
Health Careers 101 Camp.
By visiting various depart-
ments throughout the hos-
pital, the group of girls had
an enlightening afternoon
as they were introduced to a
variety of professions in the
health-care field.
The Girls Scouts of Gulf
Coast Florida offers rising
seventh-through ninth-
grade girls the opportunity
to explore health careers by
participating in an educa-
tional camp sponsored by
Gulf Coast South Area
Health Education Center,
GSAHEC.
The director
"Ther of the camp,

the hospital where the girls
participated in and
observed an assortment of
activities and demonstra-
tions vital in the day-to-day
of those working in the
health-care industry.
The first activity the girls
participated in was a mini-
wellness evaluation, where
they learned how to monitor
various vitals such as blood
pressure, pulse oximetry,


and heart sounds. After they
completed testing them-
selves and each other, Gallo
led the girls to the rehab
gym, where they got to wit-
ness therapists treating
patients with several of the
advanced treatment options
Peace River offers. The girls'
favorite was the Nintendo
WiiT, the newest addition to
the rehab program and the
Peace River Center for


Balance Disorders.
Next stop: Radiology.
While standing in the light-
room, Dr. Richard Amato,
the latest member to join
Peace River's Radiology
team, showed the girls a
variety of X-rays depicting
broken bones and metal
implants. Following the X-
ray reading, it was on to the
laboratory, where the girls
visited different stations;


they compared specimens,
looked through a micro-
scope, and were educated
about the blood bank and
its importance.
Gallo then led the girls
into surgery, where they
scrubbed in, and entered an
operating room. The girls
were given an overview of
the steps taken during an

operation, everything from
how to prep without jeop-
ardizing sterilization of
equipment and attire, to
how an area of the body is
prepped with iodine prior
to an operation.
The final stop of the
health career tour was the
OB unit and the new
Neonatal Intensive Care
Unit which has just
opened. The girls got to
"ooh" and "aah" over a baby
girl that was no more than
two hours old, and two
lucky Scouts were selected
to assist in giving a baby its
first bath.
"The girls cannot stop
talking about all they saw
on the tour," Green said the
day following their Peace
River adventure. "Thanks
once again for the wonder-
ful tour we had," and
"please extend our thanks


to all who participated."
"I only wish we had more
time," Gallo replied. "I truly
hope that the girls can walk
away with a little added
insight into what they may
want to be when they grow
up."
"I know when I was their
age, I thought if you
worked in health care, you
were either a doctor or a
nurse; I never knew of all of
the possibilities and
careers available until
much later," Gallo said. "If
we can educate them now
by introducing just a few of
the countless number of
careers available in the
health-care industry, hope-
fully we can spark an inter-
est and they can begin to
prepare for what ultimately
may be their dream come
true."

Five summertime tips to prevent kidney stones


By ADAM VOILAND
U.S. NEWS AND WORLD REPORT
Summer heat, sweat, and
dehydration have always been
a perfect recipe for kidney
stones. And as the world
warms, scientists now say,
those painful formations will
become more common. Since
it's as important as ever to take
precautions, here are five tips:
1. Drink a lot of water. For
people with a history of kidney
stones, the Mayo Clinic recom-
mends drinking 14 cups of fluid
a day.
2. Don't shy away from
lemonade. Lemonade increases
levels of citrate in the urine, a
substance that helps prevent
kidney stone formation.
3. Avoid food high in oxalate.
If you're prone to calcium
oxalate stones, you may want
to avoid foods high in oxalate.
The NIH keeps a list of foods
high in oxalate that includes
(from higher oxalate to lower):
rhubarb, spinach, beets, swiss
chard, wheat germ, soybean
crackers, peanuts, okra, choco-
late, black Indian tea, and
sweet potatoes.
4. Eat less salt. The American
Academy of Family Physicians
recommends that people not
eat more than 1,500 mg of salt
per day (about 1 teaspoon).
According to the Cleveland
Clinic, eating too much salt can
lead to excess calcium in the
bloodstream, a situation that


can cause the development of
stones.
5. Cut back on meat. The
American Academy of Family
Physicians recommends no
more than two servings a day.
The breakdown of proteins in
red meat forms uric acid, a
substance that, in excess, can
produce uric acid stones, as
well as gout.

National Institutes of Health,

Family Physicians.

Host of health benefits
attributed to sunlight
By DEBORAH KOTZ
U.S. NEWS AND WORLD REPORT
The fiery ball of radiation
that climbs into the sky every
morning can be just as good for
your health as it is damaging.
In fact, some experts now
believe that the sun's rays pro-
vide more benefit than harm-
provided you get the right dose.
Even dermatologists, who
worry about the sun's ravaging
effects on the skin in the form
of cancer, age spots, and wrin-
kles, acknowledge that we
could all use a little sun expo-
sure.
"Being out in the sun boosts
our mood, improves sleep, and
promotes vitamin D produc-
tion," says James Spencer, asso-


ciate clinical professor of der-
matology at Mt. Sinai School of
Medicine in NewYork. "There's
no controversy about that."
Still, he emphasizes, the opera-
tive word is little when it comes
to exposure. "The majority of
people aren't putting on sun-
screen every time they step
outside, and that 5 or 10 min-
utes a day of casual exposure is
probably all you need." Much
attention has been paid to the
benefits of vitamin D, which is
manufactured when the sun's
UV-B rays hit the skin and
which protects against cancer,
bone brittleness, heart disease,
and a host of other ills. But
there are other payoffs to a
small daily dose of sunlight,
including:
Better sleep. Natural day-
light helps shut off your body's
production of melatonin, a
hormone produced at night
that makes you drowsy. This
can help you maintain a nor-
mal circadian rhythm, so
you're more likely to feel tired
at bedtime when it's dark out-
side.
Happier outlook. A type
of depression called seasonal
affective disorder affects some
people during the winter when
they don't get enough sunlight.
Experts now believe that sun-
light has widespread mood-
elevating effects, possibly
because the "happy" hormone
serotonin increases when
nights are short and days are
long. In fact, psychiatrists often
recommend that depressed
individuals go outside in the
sun for 30 minutes a day.
Lessening of Alzheimer's
symptoms. Elderly Alzheimer's
patients exposed to bright
lighting during the day-from
9 a.m. to 6 p.m.-got better
scores on a mental exam, had
fewer symptoms of depression,
and lost less function than did
those exposed to dim daytime
lighting, according to a study
published in June in the Journal
of the American Medical
Association.


"The best approach to improve bowel incontinence and
chronic constipation is to develop an individualized
treatment plan that is designed especially for you."

Prevent osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a debilitat-
ing disease in which bones
become fragile and are more
likely to break. It is called the
"silent disease" because often
there are no symptoms until a
fracture occurs.
According to the National
Osteoporosis Foundation, this
disease is a growing public
health threat and affects one


in two women and more than
one in eight men.
A curriculum called
Families Building Strong
Bones was developed to teach
adult osteoporosis education.
Participants will learn:
About osteoporosis and
how to prevent it;
How calcium, exercise and
vitamin D help build strong
bones;
How to identify risk factors
for getting osteoporosis like:
smoking, caffeine, alcohol and
lack of exercise; and
That medications are avail-
able to help prevent and treat
osteoporosis.
To schedule a free Families
Building Strong Bones pro-

choices you make regarding
lifestyle and nutrition.
Making the right choices
during middle age plays a

lifestyle in later life. One


recent study discovered that
you are more likely to be free
from major diseases in later
life by controlling blood
sugar and maintaining
heart, mind, joint, and eye
health.
