No generator at only city shelter


In fact, none of the county's regular shelters has a
backup power supply, just the ones for special needs

Tropical Storm Fay didn't
pose much of a threat to the city
of Venice on Tuesday. In fact, it
appeared to sidestep Sarasota
County almost entirely on its
way north through Florida.
Just as well, since the Venice
hurricane shelter, one of only
three open in Sarasota County,
was without a backup generator.

Fewer than 500 seek

County from a tropical
storm that didn't even

NEWS EDITOR

Tropical Storm Fay skirted
Sarasota County Tuesday, caus-
ing little damage.
An estimated 60 residents,
mostly from mobile home parks
under a mandatory evacuation
order, woke up relieved, if a bit
tired, after spending the night at
the Venice Community Center
after a hurricane warning was
issued by the National Hurri-
cane Center on Monday.
Hurricane winds never devel-
oped, hovering around the 60
mph mark. A tornado watch was
issued for east Central Florida,
with touchdowns and damage
reported to homes in Brevard
County. Flood warnings were
issued for the Gulf Coast.
Thousands of homes did lose
power where Fay came onshore
about 50 miles south of Fort
Myers.
Red Cross workers at the cen-
ter spent the morning releasing
residents at the registration
table, as they slowly left, realiz-
ing Fay was no longer a threat.
Three shelters were activated
in Sarasota County, including
Brookside Middle School in
North County and Heron Creek
Middle School in South County.
They began accepting evacuees


available throughout Tropical
Storm Fay.
The news surprised city coun-
cil members who were contacted
by telephone on Tuesday.
Vice Mayor John Moore and
Council Member Rick Tacy said
they were unaware the center
wasn't equipped with a genera-
tor.
But the only discussion dur-
ing renovation that Tacy recalled
was to go after a Federal Emerg-
ency Management Agency grant
to purchase a generator.
"All the discussion was aimed
at getting it hardened so it could
be used as an emergency shel-
ter," he said.
"You would think that would
be one of the criteria" the Red
Cross uses when designating a
building as a shelter, Moore said.

accommodated 60 evacuees during Tropical Storm Fay.

at 7 p.m. Monday evening.
By 9:30 a.m. Tuesday morning
Sarasota County had already lift-
ed its mandatory evacuation of
mobile homes. Charlotte Coun-
ty issued only an advisory to res-
idents living in mobile homes.
By 10:30 a.m. the tropical
storm had moved from just south
of Naples to Martin, Lake and
Okeechobee counties, dumping 4
inches of rain before moving to
Southern Osceola County where
tornado warnings were issued.
The city's tropical storm


warning was lifted by noon.
Forecasters predicted a weak
hurricane, but even that was
downgraded to a tropical storm
after Fay veered inland once it
passed over the Keys.
Fay is expected to move off
the northeast portion of the
state by Wednesday, but fore-
casters are warning of a possible
comeback.
According to NOAA short-
term tracking models, beginning
Thursday afternoon Fay is ex-
pected to track westward back


toward Florida.
"Residents and visitors of
Central and Southwest Florida
should continue to monitor this
storm closely," states the NOAA
Web site.
Services up and running
Though the city's and coun-
ty's emergency executive orders
were lifted early Tuesday, gov-

Authorities: Venice

BY JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

City of Venice officials said
they were prepared for Tropical
Storm Fay Tuesday. The police
and fire departments stayed on
guard throughout Monday, as-
sisting with evacuations of
mobile home residents as NOAA
forecasts showed the path of the
storm was toward Sarasota
County.
By early morning Tuesday,
amid indications that Fay would
not affect Venice, VPD and VFD


staffers remained vigilant.
VPD Capt. Tom McNulty said
the agency had brought in extra
personnel early Tuesday morn-
ing to assist the community in
the event that the storm made
landfall in Venice.
"It's part of our normal rou-
tine to bring in extra manpower
to help handle the increased
needs of the community," he
said.

Lee remembered with smiles, tears


BY TERRY O'CONNOR
STAFF WRITER

Saturday was a bitter-
sweet day for the Lee
family.
The first Denise Amber
Lee Family Fun Day drew
hundreds of people to
North Port's Dallas White
Park in a heartwarming
show of support for a
cause near and dear to the
family.
It also returned the
spotlight to the family and
the tragedy the brutal
Jan. 17 abduction and
murder of Denise Amber
Lee that is the reason for
the event's existence.
Still, holding a Fun Day
in remembrance of Lee is
appropriate, said Nathan
Lee, her husband.
"Denise was all about
family and fun," Nathan
Lee said.
The outpouring of com-
munity support continues
to amaze him.
"I thought there would
be a couple of tents and a
bounce room," he said.
"This turned out to be so
much bigger than I thought
it would.
"I guess I shouldn't be
surprised. There's been so
much support from North
Port, Englewood and Port
Charlotte. This communi-
ty has been through a lot
of horrible things with
Denise and the Coralrose
(Fullwood) murders."
Lee intends for his wife's
death to result in an
improved 9-1-1 dispatch
system. Proceeds from the
Fun Day will go to the
Denise Amber Lee Founda-
tion, now affiliated with
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice, to
lobby for mandated train-
ing for 9-1-1 system opera-
tors, who were accused of
blowing a key communica-
tion during the three-day
search for Lee.
Not giving up
A screaming Denise
Amber Lee was last seen
in public when she
slapped the back window
of her abductor's Camaro
with her palms and got
the attention of a woman
at a stoplight who called
Charlotte County's 9-1-1.
The call was never con-
veyed to police just blocks
away searching for Lee.
Lee's body was found
two days later less than 3
miles from where the 9-1-
1 caller saw her struggling.
Michael King, a 36-year-
old unemployed plumber
from North Port, was soon
arrested and pleaded not
guilty to charges he kid-
napped, raped and mur-
dered Lee. He goes on trial
in November.

Denise Amber Lee Foundation members Leisa Arritt, left, and Jeanine Gebert help Noah Lane, 2, try to spin the wheel on a
remote car racetrack Saturday during Family Fun Day at North Port's Dallas White Park.


"I want all the dis-
patchers and operators
out there to know I want
to help support them,"
Lee said. "None of them
wanted to see what hap-
pened happen. That's
what I'm dedicating my
life to ... so nobody has to
hear 'Your wife could have
been saved.' Denise didn't
give up that night. Neither
am I."
The Florida Legislature
passed the Denise Amber
Lee Act in April to create
statewide standards for
the training and certifica-
tion of 9-1-1 operators.
But lawmakers stopped
short of making training
mandatory saying the
state does not have the
money for it.
The Department of
Health is creating optional
training and certification
standards for Florida's 67
counties.
Jenn Singleton, fund-
raising director for the
nonprofit Denise Amber
Lee Foundation, is help-
ing Lee spearhead the
push for mandated 9-1-1
training.
"I'm a third-genera-
tion Englewood resi-
dent," Singleton said. "It hit
too close to home for me."
The Denise Amber Lee
Foundation supports dis-
patchers and understands
how difficult the job can
be, Singleton said. Its
focus is on providing suffi-
cient and standardized
training for dispatchers to


handle calls correctly.
'A lot of things could be
improved," Lee said. "It's
not a perfect system."
Standardized training
was endorsed by at least
one law enforcement offi-


cial at the Fun Day.
"Different departments
have different standard
operating procedures,"
said North Port Police
Officer Scott Miranda.
"Our dispatchers do an


outstanding job. I don't see
any problem with them.
But I think standardized
training is a great idea."
Good people
In the meantime, there


were red-rimmed eyes
amid the smiles at the Fun
Day. How do you deal with
a tragic loss?
"Lots of tears," said
Margie Marren, whose
son, Shawn Marren, is
Noah's godfather. "It's very
upsetting."
Mark Allen Lee, father
of Nathan Lee, said it's
been difficult to focus on
his work as a mortgage
broker. It doesn't help that
the mortgage system is
going through unprece-
dented convulsions either,
he said.
"I think I'm going to
have to find another job,"
he said.
But community support
is helping him through the
ordeal, too.
"It's overwhelming to
see how all the people are
affected," he said.
The Fun Day was also
designed to thank the
community for support
shown to the Lee family in
the wake of Denise's death.
"The main thing is the
city of North Port needs to
know there's a lot of good
people here," Nathan Lee
said.
The next foundation
fundraiser is an Oct. 18
golf tournament at
Bobcat Trail. Go to www.
deniseamberlee.org for
more information.

"It would be so much
better if we were at the
sheeting stage," said Dena
Kohlbecker, volunteer co-
ordinator.
Volunteers were told to
stay home as Tuesday's
work on the houses was
canceled in anticipation of
Fay.
Kohlbecker said they
had hoped to put diagonal
braces on the trusses on
Saturday, but they ran out
of time. Habitat volunteers
currently work on the
houses Tuesdays, Thurs-
days and Saturdays from 8
a.m. to noon.
South Sarasota Habitat

Director Judy Wilcox said
workers secure all the
building materials and the
structures as well as they
can in preparation for
storms.
"Some loose things we
bring back to the ware-

with concrete block con-
struction now we can store
most of it inside the hous-
es."

SCAT resumed services
and was running regular

afternoon, according to
Anthony Beckford, SCAT
general manager.
Solid waste collections
will resume for county res-
idents Wednesday. City
residents were told to con-
tact their municipalities
for information on trash
pickups.
Early voting for the Aug.
26 primary election was
also suspended until
county facilities re-
opened. Officials remind-
ed candidates to secure
their signs or pick them
up, although it didn't ap-
pear many had.
According to a county-
issued press release, pub-
lic safety officials reported
that 299 people and 18
pets stayed in the three
general population shel-
ters that were open, in
addition to 150 people
with special needs.
Gov. Charlie Crist de-
clared a state of emer-
gency for Florida Saturday
anticipating a hurricane.
State emergency manage-
ment officials issued addi-
tional warnings Sunday.
Sheltered
Bill Lehnert, shelter
manager for the Red
Cross, said he was happy
with preparation done by
his staff of 15 volunteers,
but concerned that so few
mobile home residents
chose to heed the evacua-


Habitat homes meet code.
"Our newer homes
have hurricane shutters or
hurricane-resistant win-
dows," he said, "depend-
ing on what's appropriate
for the area where the
homes are located."
Still, as is Habitat's
habit, staff stays in touch
with their homeowners
through the 30-year life of
their loans, hurricanes and
tropical storms.
"If there is damage to
our homeowners' houses,
we work closely with them
to help secure their homes
as soon as possible,"
Wilcox said. "The board
decided to make them the
first priority. We also help
them with materials until
insurance is in place."
Wilcox said Habitat has
an emergency prepared-
ness plan they follow. Each
staff and board member
has a copy of the plan
packet on how to prepare
for hurricanes, as do all
Habitat homeowners.
"We have a telephone
chain," she said "and we
ask all of our homeowners
to call us after a storm to
let us know how they

"It could have been a lot
worse," Lehnert said.
The community center
had a well-coordinated
plan, ordering lights out by
10 p.m. in two ballrooms:
one for younger people
and families, the other for
older residents. One of the
meeting rooms served as a
child care center.
Those unable to sleep
spent the evening tracking
Fay on a large TV screen in
the cafeteria, while others
played cards or snacked.
Volunteers slept in
shifts, ready to console any
frightened residents and
register newcomers. On
call at the center were a
doctor, two nurses and
two police officers.
A retired New Jersey
police officer, Lehnert said
part of the registration
process was to determine
if any of those seeking
shelter could volunteer in
other capacities.
"If we find out they
teach, for example, we
might ask them to help out
with the children, or a
retired police officer might
be asked to help out with
security," Lehnert said.
"They never say no.
They'd rather have some-
thing to do than just sit
around."
Tropical Storm Fay is
the sixth storm of the 2008
Atlantic season, according
to the National Hurricane
Center. The next will be
named Gustav.

At issue is where Knight
lived when he was a major
in the Florida Highway
Patrol in Hillsborough
County, before resigning
in March.
Knight, 45, moved to
Venice in 1973 and was a
1981 graduate of Venice
High School.
He worked for FHP at
various locations around
the state before settling in
Nokomis in 1998 after
being assigned to work in
Venice.
Nokomis is Knight's pri-
mary, legal residence, he
said.
FHP troopers are re-
quired to live within 30
miles of where they work,
but Knight received per-
mission from his supervi-
sor to park his patrol vehi-
cle in Ellenton, or Ruskin,
where he maintained a
mobile home.
'Dirty race'
The post about Knight
encourages readers to
"accept that he lied to FHP


about the location of his
'permanent residence.'"
However, Knight has an
e-mail from an FHP offi-
cial stating he was in com-
pliance with FHP policies.
He added that it is "com-
monplace" for troopers to
park their vehicles inside
the 30-mile boundary and
drive their personal cars
home.
Knight won't say who
he believes wrote the post,
but he said, "Instead of a
clean race, they want to
run a dirty race.
"I don't want to run a
dirty race. The public does
not want a dirty race."
Sarasota County Su-
pervisor of Elections Kathy
Dent said Knight has been
registered to vote in
Sarasota County since
1998, and is qualified to
run for sheriff in the coun-
ty
"We are aware that
complaints have been
made, but we are not the
agency that complaints
should be made to," she
said.
"That's the Florida
Elections Commission or
the fraud division of the
state Division of Elec-
tions."

But it's not, according to
Inaki Rezola, senior direc-
tor of preparedness and
response with the South-
west Chapter of American
Red Cross.
"It's not a criterion. It
falls under the category of
'preferred,' "he said.
Standard
It turns out none of the
county's shelters is equip-
ped with backup genera-
tors. The exception is
emergency shelters for
those with special needs,
like people with medical
conditions that require
flowing oxygen.
"It's pretty standard in
the state," Rezola said. "It
really became a big issue
after the 2004-05 season.
That's when a lot of special
shelters did not have gen-
erators."
"It's something we'd like
to have," he said. "Cer-
tainly there is a cost in-
volved."
The issue for the other
two county shelters that
were activated Brook-
side Middle and Heron
Creek Middle School is
school kitchens that run
on gas.
"You would think they


WEDNESDAY, AUG. 20, 2008

can cook when they lose
electricity, but they can't
because the gas is hooked
up to a fire safety (mecha-
nism) that kicks it off when
electricity is lost," Rezola
said.
Red Cross workers in
the Venice area weren't too
concerned Tuesday as Fay
petered without even a
hard rain to show for itself,
although other parts of
southern Florida were
pounded with precipita-
tion.
It was the community
center's inaugural run as a
hurricane shelter, and by
all accounts things went
smoothly.
The only complaints
Tuesday morning were
from evacuees looking for
the SCAT bus to return
home. SCAT buses began
running hours later.
"It's a difficult thing for
people (to manage)," said
Moore. "You don't want to
alarm residents unneces-
sarily and have the indi-
rect impact of shutting
down businesses. On the
other hand, these things
are so unpredictable, you
have to look at it like it's
coming right at you."

dents were asked to take
shelter at the Venice Com-
munity Center. Police offer-
ed assistance to those who
could not transport them-
selves.
"We make sure that the
public knows about the
evacuation orders and
we're happy to take them
down to the shelter if they
can't make it on their own,"
he said.
Mcnulty said the safety
protocols Venice imple-
ments have improved greatly
in the last several years, after
two hurricane-intensive
years increased concerns
over public preparedness.
"We coordinate between
the various departments
and the community to
make sure everythingis run-
ning smoothly," he said.
"We've got a well-oiled ma-
chine."
Fire
Deputy Chief Steve


Kona of the Venice Fire
Department said the VFD
added staff in anticipation
of the tropical storm.
"Usually we have 10
firefighters on staff; during
storms like this though, we
double our numbers to
20," he said.
Despite the increase in
manpower, when a storm
is anticipated to hit Venice,
Kona said, there isn't a lot
the fire department can do
until after it has passed.
"We won't send emer-
gency response vehicles
out in winds that exceed
45 mph because they are
vulnerable to tipping
over," he said. 'All we can
do is wait it out."
Kona said that once a
storm has passed, the
VFD's main responsibili-
ties are to clear debris
from the main roads lead-
ing to hospitals and bring
the VFD back to fully func-
tional status.
The VFD also has three
boats at its disposal for


rescues in case of flooding.
Aid
The Red Cross, which
has roughly 100 volunteers
in Sarasota County, was
ready with food and shel-
ter for those seeking
refuge from their mobile
homes. Southwest Florida
Chapter Executive Direct-
or Kevin Lindberg said
that 20 percent of Amer-
ican Red Cross volunteers
in Sarasota are located in
Venice and they are
trained in CPR and first-
aid procedures.
In the event of a cata-
strophic hurricane, Lind-
berg said that the Red
Cross has 30 shelters it can
open in Sarasota County,
most of which are located
on public school grounds.
"If a bad storm were to
come through our area, we
can open all of these shel-
ters using a tiered system
.... Our policy is to open
three of them at a time as
the demand increases," he


said.
Venice authorities and
local Red Cross volunteers
welcomed 60 residents
into the community cen-
ter Monday night in prep-
aration for the storm.
However, by mid-morning
Tuesday, when it became
apparent that the storm
would not hit Venice, resi-
dents returned home.
Even though this storm
did not end up making
landfall over Sarasota
County, the threat serves as
a reminder to residents
here that tropical storms
and hurricanes can change
direction at any moment,
and that ultimately, it's in
the best interest of the com-
munity to err on the side of
caution.
"In these situations, we
hope the public listens to
the warnings and takes
every necessary precau-
tion to stay safe," McNulty
said.

Oil drilling OK for Republican state candidates


BY STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

The time has come to drill for oil off Florida's coast at
least for the two Republicans seeking the District 23 state
Senate seat in the August primary.
"Oil drilling off the coast of Florida is something I came
to very reluctantly," said state Rep. Michael Grant, who is
now seeking to be the Republican nominee for the District
23 state Senate seat. "But I think it is now part of a balanced
energy portfolio we must look at, which includes solar,
wind and tidal."
He'd want to see any oil money the state receives to be
invested into alternative energy sources.
Grant and Nancy Detert, his opponent in the Aug. 26
primary, were just two of the Republican candidates at the


League of Women Voters of Charlotte County's televised
forum Aug. 14.
Detert said, "I made the statement I was for offshore oil
drilling before my opponent ever said he was, before (Gov.
Charlie Crist) and before presidential candidate (Sen. John
McCain).
"I think we all consider ourselves environmentalists,"
she said. "We all want to protect and serve the public. We
want Florida to be safe. But that was when gas was $1.20
gallon."
Detert wants Florida to be able to control the coastline
and put an end to imported oil devaluing the U.S. dollar.
She wasn't alone. The three candidates wanting to be
the Republican nominee for Grant's District 71 House seat,
which includes part of South Sarasota County, all support
offshore oil drilling.


Chris Constance sees the drilling as a source of income
to bolster the state budget and shortfalls.
"(Alabama) has 49 natural gas rigs off its southern coast
that generate a half-billion in tax revenue every year,"
Constance said. "We need to generate other sources of
revenue."
Ken Roberson said, "If it's far enough out and safe
enough, I am all for it, but it's not going to happen until
Congress lifts the moratorium."
And Richard Santos said, "There was a time when
(Florida offshore drilling) may not have been needed. But
with gas at nearly $4 a gallon, there is a need for offshore
drilling .... Now is the time for offshore drilling, and it is
time to search for alternatives."

Property assessment notices going out in mail this week


BY JOHN HAUGHEY
STAFF WRITER

Some 304,000 in Sara-
sota County should start
receiving their projected
property tax assessments
by the end of this week.
There are two parts to
each TRuth In Millage no-


tice the top section lists
proposed ad valorem, or
property, tax millages, while
the lower section docu-
ments fees.
Taxes are levied by mill-
age rates through local and
state entities, including
county and city govern-
ments, school districts, spe-


cial districts and agencies
such as the Southwest Flor-
ida Water Management
District.
Fees are assessed by flat
rates to landowners in such
entities as municipal ser-
vice benefit units.
TRIM notices enable
property owners to com-


pare their land's prior year's
assessed value and taxes
with the upcoming year's
assessed value and pro-
posed taxes.
With state voters approv-
ing Amendment 1 in No-
vember, this year's tax bills
will reflect a number of sub-
stantial changes.


They are:
A 10-percent cap on tax-
able value assessments for
all nonhomesteaded land,
including commercial prop-
erty and second homes.
School taxes are exempt.
Doubling the $25,000
homestead exemption for
homesteaded land.


Portability of the Save
Our Homes 3-percent an-
nual taxable property valu-
ation cap.
Exemption of $25,000
for tangible personal prop-
erty.

OUR VIEW


Todora gets nod for property appraiser


In 2004 and 2000 Sarasota County
Property Appraiser Jim Todora was
able to stand for office again each
time without opposition.
Two years of turbulence in the real
estate market have changed that,
though, with Todora facing a stiff, well-
funded challenge in the Aug. 26
Republican primary from Bill Furst.
Both men are talented, articulate,
serious candidates. They have divergent
approaches to the job, honest disagree-
ments about the appraiser's roles and
responsibilities. We are sticking with the
incumbent and recommending Todora
for another term.
Todora has held the office for 12
years now, and was an assistant proper-
ty appraiser before that. Property
assessing is his passion, obviously, and
he is heavily involved with the state and
international appraising boards.
In our view, Todora seems to see the
job in black-and-white terms. He's solid,
by the book. Often, there's not a lot of


wiggle room in his interpretation of the
law governing county property apprais-
ers. We appreciate his sober, no-non-
sense approach to something that so
strongly affects individuals and busi-
nesses.
It is Todora's seeming rigidity that is
the key to Furst's campaign. Long
involved in the Sarasota-area real estate
world, Furst said Todora's stance on any
number of issues is "inflexible" and that
his insistence on those positions harms
taxpayers.
For instance, while Todora shoots for
an overall average valuation of close to
100 percent, Furst said that hurts some
property owners and that more people
would be protected from unfairly high
valuations if the appraiser's sights were
set lower overall.
It's an attractive idea, naturally, but
it's more gloss than substance. Doesn't
fairness mean 100 percent for everyone,
after all? And what Furst hopes voters
will infer from his promise to lower their


valuations is that their taxes will go
down. But that's disingenuous at best,
similar to what the Legislature did earli-
er this year. Lower property valuations
means less tax revenue for the county,
which means more service cuts or an
increase in the millage rate though,
of course, the county commission
would have to take the fall for that, not
Furst.
Furst also presses the issue of Sara-
sota Habitat for Humanity, which is
fully taxed on land earmarked for future
housing projects. Sarasota is only one of
three counties in the state that tax
Habitat in this way. Todora argues that a
ruling in a lawsuit years ago requires
that practice. This irks Habitat officials,
but Todora has refused to budge, citing
the constraints of the law.
But Furst and Habitat officials -
maintain that a later ruling on the issue
gives the county some wiggle room that
would allow it to change the practice
and do what everyone, including


Todora, acknowledges would be a wor-
thy thing. Furst would take that step;
Todora still wants legislation in Talla-
hassee that would clearly allow it. We
agree with Furst on that one.
While he brings up some intriguing
questions, the timing of his challenge
makes us uneasy, as do some of the tac-
tics shown by his supporters. A proper-
ty appraiser can be an easy target, often
damned if he does, damned if he does-
n't. Dissatisfaction with Todora emerg-
ed last year when appraisals failed to
keep pace with plummeting values, but
that's no surprise in a dropping market.
The incumbent remains a solid vet-
eran. The appraiser's office should be
accessible and willing to work with citi-
zens to establish fair appraisals, but it
also needs to maintain strong standards
to keep the confidence of the commu-
nity.
We endorse Jim Todora in the Re-
publican primary for property apprais-
er.


Whew, another miss


BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER


It must be, as the Calusa
Indians found out, that the
Venice area was the place
to live because hurricanes
wouldn't hit it. While that
sounds like interesting
folklore, I would hate to
bank on it.
It was good to see that
people took Fay seriously,
although it certainly was a
nonevent. It really messed
up our plans for some sen-
sational stories and pho-
tos. How are we going to
win best newspaper in the
state if we don't get great
photo opportunities?
If you watched the
"spaghetti" models of hur-
ricane paths on TV there
were certainly a few that
went over Venice. I think
whoever invented those
was someone who wanted
to cover the hurricane pre-
dictors' backsides.
Lots of people kept
telling me Fay was taking
the same path as Charley,
as if any two hurricanes do
the same thing. At least for
a while they were accurate.
The great thing about
these scares is that it helps
stimulate the economy.
People buy wood, water,
batteries, lamps even
generators. We have more
batteries in the refrigerator
than we have any other
item. People will be calling
for estimates on window
protection today.
And another way to
look at the situation is that
a lot of people can't afford
even peanut butter, so we
should be glad we weren't
hit or many people would
have been in trouble.
It was a little funny
reading Venice Public In-
formation Officer Pam
Johnson's news release
about preparations for the
event. One thing she
pointed out was that when
they call for evacuations of
barrier islands Venice is
not a barrier island. We
might not be one, but boy,
that Gulf is just about as
close as if we were one.
She goes on to give
some reassurances about
the height of the island
and says "in most places it
is several feet above sea
level." "Several" in the dic-
tionary is "more than two."
That made me feel real
secure.


The Venice Community
Center is 19 feet, the high-
est point on "the island."
Amazingly, the communi-
ty center has no generator,
which is rather unbeliev-
able for a hurricane shel-
ter.
For those wanting to
take their pets to a shelter,
only a shelter in Sarasota
could handle them. What
is a poor dog or cat to do?
Anyway, it is impressive
how well the city and
county prepare for these
events. We have learned a
lot over the years.
OK, Fay, now we have
had our drill for this year;
thanks. There is a little too
much TV drama associat-
ed with these.


By's Crack: Do you
ever feel that resorts hire
professional rooms to
pose for their bro-
chures?


Someone suggested to
me that we ought to have a
vote to have city council
resign and if they don't,
then vote to disband it.

Nice to see Marty
Black's son was named
Eagle Scout of the year for
the state of Florida.

As schools start back, it
appears enrollment for the
county will be down. I
know some of the North
Port schools are down,
although they are still are
very full. Venice High is
projected to be about the
same as last year, but
sometimes the kids just
don't show up as planned.
Some national statistics
are interesting: 41 percent
of elementary students are
minorities and 23 percent
of the children have one
foreign-born parent, while
11 percent are enrolled in
private schools.

Today's Ism (on a nap-
kin at Venice Stationers):
You can't make everyone
happy, so how about just
me?

For nongrowth advo-
cates, it is interesting to
note that the census
bureau says that six of the
top 25 cities in the country
whose population is de-
clining fastest are in Flor-
ida, although Port St. Lucie
is still one of the fastest
growing.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Who will represent the pilots?


Editor:
I am a pilot at VNC and share a plane with nine other
pilots. It is always our intention to follow the noise abate-
ment procedures but it is becoming increasingly hard
due to the condition of runway 4/22.
I hear the opponents to the airport who think we
pilots are selfish and uncaring about noise at the airport.
As with any group, there may be some who are not as
attentive, but as a rule, pilots are concerned more with
safety than any other factor. No one intentionally "revs
up their engine over the condos," as was stated in a local
blog. Pilots take off at full throttle and land at about half
throttle. It would be idiotic to rev an engine during a
landing.
The people who are against the airport come up with
some pretty outlandish situations. If city council believes
the many false and improbably accusations about flying,
it is more reason why pilots rather than public servants
should have a say in management of the airport.
I think it ridiculous that the council wants fewer pilots
on the Airport Advisory Board. We have proved that non-
pilots making decisions and voting against airport
improvements is not only foolish but unsafe.

North Port can

Editor:
Your story "Hospital

enlighten the residents of

leadership.
These people are out of

start a business and have
the taxpayers fund it a
$2.35 million profit from
our hard-earned money.
I have never seen tax-
payers fund hospitals until
I moved to Florida.
If I went to Sarasota
Memorial for treatment,
would my first visit be free
because of my tax dollars?
I think not. With today's


economy, indigent care
starts at home.
Free up our tax money
and let the hospital run its
own business. Medicare
losses should not be the
taxpayers' problem. We
are already funding that
program.


supply their war effort
with synthetic oil due to
the destruction of natural
oil production. We know
that the quantity of syn-
thetic oil was limited due
to the constant destruc-
tion of their facilities.
Surely with our knowl-
edge we could improve
upon that technology and
expand production. The
ads that the major oil com-
panies run have stated
that "synthetic oil" for your
vehicle is far superior to
any natural oil. If this is
true, why are we not pro-
ducing it in large quanti-
ties both as a lubricant and
fuel? As production rises,
costs decline.
Would this not help our
dependency on imported
oil?

Fine print? I keep reading all these suggestions to
move the Venice airport east of 75, or move it to Arcadia
and so forth. If I correctly understand the conditions
stipulated in the documents deeding the airport land to
the city, the current airport must remain an airport in
perpetuity. Where I come from, in perpetuity means for-
ever. Apparently, in Venice it only means until enough
disgruntled carpetbaggers decide to make the neighbor-
hood surrounding the airport their permanent homes.

Electric bill is headed in right direction


STEPHEN BAUMANN
GUEST COLUMNIST


The first results from
the Great Energy-Saving
Challenge of 2008 are in,
and we're looking mighty
good at the Baumann
household.
A couple of months ago
we set out to try new ways
to conserve electricity and
cut our electric bill.
To recap, we turned the
thermostat up to a con-
stant 82 during the day
and down to 77 at night.
We used fans sparingly,
mostly at night in the bed-
room.
We made sure to close
the blinds in the afternoon
when the west-leaning
sun beat down like Ginger
Baker on the large bank of
windows in the front of the
house. We were more care-
ful about turning off lights.
There were two major
changes. We bought a new
energy-efficient refrigera-
tor, a scratch-and-dent
special at Lowes.
The other big thing we


started a couple of months
ago was to flip off the
water heater after morn-
ing showers. Trust me, it's
been no hassle.
The Florida Power &
Light bill came last week-
end, and here are the re-
sults:
My bill dropped from
$152.35 in June to $124.68
in July. This includes a
$2.21 late fee (I didn't
know FP&L charged a late
fee, but now I'll never be
late again), so the bottom
line is $122.47. (I also have
$5-a-month surge protec-
tion. Go figure.)

My wife replaced
all the lightbulbs
with new-style
CFL bulbs yester-
day.




We went from using
1,308 kilowatt-hours in
June to 1,069 in July. The
per-day usage went from
42 to 36.
The year-over-year
comparison is even more
dramatic. For July 2007,
our bill was $235.50. We
used 1,949 kilowatt-hours,
or 61 per day. This year, it
was 1,069 and 36.
Pretty darn good. Close
to half.


Even better was my
mother-in-law's bill, which
went from $155.82 to
$87.36. Year-to-year in July,
her consumption went
from 1,407 to 733 kilowatt-
hours. Hats off.
Two months ago, I sug-
gested some of her efforts
in the Great Energy-Saving
Challenge were wacky, so I
stand chastened. Nothing
new there.
I still think we can do
even better.
My wife replaced all the
lightbulbs with new-style
CFL bulbs yesterday. We
had some before; now
we're fully committed. And
we've signed up for FPL's
On Call program. This
means our major appli-
ances may automatically
shut off during severe peak
hours. We can handle the
inconvenience and it will
save us $5-$10 a month.
Even my friend Phil has
gotten in on the act, cut-
ting $50 from his ungodly
high bill of $300-plus last
month. He cut the hours
that he runs his pool and
hot tub pumps, turned the
computer off at night,
turned the AC up a couple
of degrees and started has-
sling his daughter about
turning off fans.
The point is, if we all
can do it, anyone can.

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


County flushes
excess water use
The installation of near-
ly 300 water-free urinals
throughout county facili-
ties has saved about 13
million gallons of water
from being flushed down
the county's sewage stream,
at a projected saving of
$92,500 in treatment costs.
Conversion of the
county's Central Energy
Plant to reuse water will
save another $33,322 per
year.
Earlier this year, air-
conditioning cooling tow-
ers were converted from
domestic water to reuse
water, saving about 9 mil-
lion gallons of drinking
water a year.
Converting 282 county
urinals to waterless urinals
will eliminate water and
sewer treatment fees for
Sarasota, Venice, North
Port and Englewood. To
date, 163 of the urinals
have been installed. Nine-
ty-six will be installed later
this year.
The water-free urinals
use space-age technology
developed by NASA for
astronauts. A plastic seal
allows liquids to pass
through, while preventing
sewer gas from backing up
into the fixture. The fixture
requires only routine
cleaning.
The two initiatives have
eliminated the use of more
than 20 million gallons of
drinking water per year in
county facilities and are
part of an ongoing plan to
encourage water-saving
technologies and strate-
gies to conserve precious
water resources.
To learn more about
Sarasota County's energy
and water conservation
initiatives, call 861-5000.

Program earns
national recognition
The Sarasota Partner-
ship for Children's Mental
Health was nationally rec-
ognized for achievement
in communications at the
2008 Excellence in Com-
munity Communications
and Outreach Recognition
Program, which recently
took place in Nashville,
Tenn. The ECCO Recog-
nition Program highlights


outstanding communica-
tion achievements that
promote children's mental
health.
"Silver" designation
was earned for "Profes-
sional Outreach" for bro-
chure writing and design.
A "Bronze" award was pre-
sented for "Outreach to
Parents and Caregivers" for
collaboration with United
Way Success by Six on the
"Ready, Set, Grow!" calen-
dar of family activities
which included monthly
social-emotional health
"tips" for parents. "Honor-
able Mention" designation
was received in two cate-
gories: "Community Col-
laboration" for the Part-
nership's "Rainbow Butter-
fly" logo and design pro-
cess and "Mental Health
Awareness Day" promo-
tion on May 8.
The Sarasota Partner-
ship for Children's Mental
Health competed with 60
entries submitted by com-
munities from across the
country who are dedicated
to improving children's
mental health. All entries
were peer-judged. For in-
formation, call 861-1443.
Get 'energy smart;
save money
Sarasota County is chal-
lenging citizens to get
energy smart in their cars
and their homes over the
next few months by partic-
ipating in two initiatives
from the National Associ-
ation of Counties.
The first is a fuel-effi-
ciency campaign aimed at
keeping more money in
drivers' pockets by reduc-
ing the number of costly
trips to the pump. The sec-
ond aims to reduce Amer-
ica's energy consumption.
The Drive $marter Chal-
lenge was launched by
NACo, The Wal-Mart Foun-
dation and 16 public and
private-sector partners to
help U.S. consumers lower
their gasoline costs by using
less. It offers effective
money- and gas-saving tips
in English and Spanish and
extensive additional re-
sources.
Sarasota County has
accepted the challenge to
see which county in each
of three population-size
categories can get the

dents and employees to
take the Drive $marter
Challenge.
Each individual who
takes the challenge at
www.drivesmarterchal

coupons from Exxon Mo-
bil and AutoZone for fuel-
saving products. The win-
ning county will receive
1,000 bottles of fuel addi-
tive and cleaner products
from AutoZone to distrib-
ute to its citizens.
Sarasota County is also
participating in the annual
Energy Star Change the
World, Start with Energy
Star campaign, which
challenges counties to col-
lect the greatest number of
pledges from residents
committing to change one
light in their home to one
that's earned the Energy
Star label for energy effi-
ciency.
By some estimates,
changing just one incan-
descent light bulb to an
Energy Star-labeled com-
pact fluorescent bulb in
every home in Florida
could prevent more than
555 million pounds of
greenhouse gases, an im-
pact similar to removing
48,000 cars from Florida's
roads.

County to pick
a peck of peppers
Sarasota County Parks
and Recreation, Coastal
Resources and the West
Coast Inland Navigation
District are set to begin an
exotic removal project on
Rattlesnake Island.
The project will target
invasive exotic plants such
as Brazilian pepper and


carrotwood trees, result-
ing in reduced fire risk,
enhanced park accessibili-
ty and native habitats, as
well as improved public
safety. The project, being
undertaken by RA Mark-
uson Inc. of Nokomis, is
expected to take approxi-
mately one month and is
being paid for by the
WCIND.
Brazilian pepper, a
non-native nuisance inva-
sive plant, has spread over
much of the island, crowd-
ing out native plants and
making public access
nearly impossible. Once
removed, the exotics will
be replaced with native
plant life.
For more information
on exotic plants and their
effects on the Florida envi-
ronment, call 861-5000.
Marinas asked
to get in line
Sarasota County is ask-
ing local marina owners
and waterfront condo-
miniums to join its Mono-
filament Recovery and
Recycling Program. The
program is part of a state-
wide effort to publicize the
problems associated with
abandoned monofilament
line and to encourage re-
cycling through a network
of recycling bins and drop-
off locations.
Monofilament line rep-
resents a persistent envi-
ronmental pollutant and
is harmful and often fatal
to manatees, dolphins, sea
turtles, fish and birds. It
can also threaten divers
and boaters and lasts
about 600 years in the
marine environment.
To adopt a monofila-
ment bin, call 861-5000. To
learn more about the

program, visit www.fish

trict will be conducting
controlled, prescribed
burns during August for
two district sites in Sara-
sota County: the Schewe
Ranch and the Deer
Prairie Creek properties.
Both tracts are located
to the north and south of I-
75 between mile markers
186 and 190, with U.S. 41
as their far southern
boundary. The properties
are also located between
the Myakka River and
North Port and Warm
Mineral Springs. There is
the potential to burn more
than 750 acres of land in
small, manageable units.
Controlled burns of
particular interest in this
area include burning near
North Port and Warm
Mineral Springs because
these burns will be taking
place close to homes and
the interstate. These burns
are done to protect the
residential areas from
wildfires or other human-
related fires that may get
out of control.
The scheduled, man-
aged burns are a part of
routine maintenance of
lands managed by the dis-
trict.
Every effort will be
made to ensure that
smoke will not affect
homes or highways. How-
ever, vehicle operators
should exercise caution in
case smoke does lead to
reduced visibility on the
area's roads or highways.
For more information,
call (352) 796-7211 or (800)
423-1476.
Plant sea
scallop seeds
Sarasota County is part-
nering with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Research
Institute to plant a future
population of local sea
scallops.
Beginning in August,
the county will work with
waterfront property own-
ers on a scallop seeding


project that they hope will
propagate the species,
which is declining due to
over-fishing and poor
water quality.
According to the insti-
tute, areas along south-
west Florida including
Sarasota Bay that once
harbored dense scallop
populations, now support
few if any. To restore those
numbers, Florida closed
all state waters to com-
mercial bay scallop fishing
in 1994, and closed recre-
ational scallop fishing
south of the Suwannee
River. The recreational
harvest season was re-
duced to three months.
Sarasota County is now
asking waterfront proper-
ty owners with direct bay
access for permission to
place cages holding live
young scallops under their
docks and then monitor
the scallops each month
to track growth and sur-
vival rates.
To volunteer for the
program or host a scallop
site, call 861-5000 and ask
for the scallop seeding
project.
SCAT Summer Youth
Passes are back
The popular Sarasota
County Area Transit Sum-
mer Youth Pass is now on
sale. The $10 pass allows
youths up to age 19 unlim-
ited ridership on SCAT
buses to Sept. 1.
SCAT operates seven days
a week and offers extended
hours and late-night ser-
vice on several routes. SCAT
provides service to beach-
es, major shopping areas,
all county libraries and the
Sarasota-Bradenton Inter-
national Airport, among
many others.
Proof of age is required
for purchase; accepted
forms of payment are cash
or check (cash only at the
Downtown Transfer Sta-
tion). Credit cards are not
accepted.


While 'q
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.


Volunteers are needed luesdays, Inursdays and Saturdays
from 8 a.m. to noon. To volunteer or for information, please
call Dena Kohlbecker, volunteer coordinator at 493-6606.


I The patient and any other person responsible for payment has a right to refuse to pay, cancel m
payment, or be reimbursed for payment for any other service, examination, or treatment that is
performed as a result of and within 72 hours of responding to the advertisement for the free,
discounted fee, or reduced fee service, examination, or treatment.

Q. My Audiologist per-
formed a test on my ear
drums called tympano-
metry. I have never had
this test done at the other
places where my hearing
was tested. What is this
test and why did I receive
it?
A. Tympanometry is a test of
ear drum mobility. This
measurement provides a
method to diagnose and
monitor disorders that could
lead to permanent hearing
loss. It can also help
diagnose hearing disorders
which can be corrected
surgically or medically by an
ear, nose and throat
physician. As a non-invasive
test, tympanometry can
quickly and easily be
performed on patients of any
age, from infants to
adults. Testing only takes
about two minutes. The
objectivity of tympanometry
means the results are
accurate, based on the
calculations- they are not
defendant upon a response
from the patient. Looking at
the ear drum often cannot
provide information about
what lies behind it.
Tympanometry is performed
to check for the presence of
fluid or ear drum
perforations. Tympanometry
is an important test which is
performed in order to obtain
a correct diagnosis of a
person's hearing problem.
Ask your Audiologist to
explain the results of
your tympanogram to you
the next time you receive
your hearing examination. If
you think you have not
received this test at your
previous hearing examina-
tions, call the Audiologists
at Woodmere Hearing
Centers, Inc. at (941)

Scanning the globe...

Former Venice High School
football standout Aaron Stahl is
having a successful training
camp at his new position at the
University of North Carolina.
The junior offensive line-
man started every game last
season at guard, but has
moved to center this offseason
to replace graduated senior
Scott Lenahan. Lenahan is the
only Tar Heel lineman not
returning for the 2008 cam-
paign.
The biggest transition for
Stahl in the difficult move from
guard to center has been the
amount of space he has to work
with.
'At guard, you have the neu-
tral zone to work with," he told
Mike Ehrlich of The Daily Tar
Heel. "When you're at center,
there's a guy breathing down
your face. You have to have a lot
more precision with your tech-
nique, because you only have
that far to work with."
In an interview with Carolina
Blue, North Carolina head
coach Butch Davis lauded Stahl
for the success he's had with the
transition. Stahl beat out Lowell
Dyer, who started six games last
year for an injured Lenahan, for
the starting job, according to
Dave Nathan of WRAL in
Raleigh, North Carolina.
Stahl graduated from Venice
in 2005, earning first-team All-
Area honors in his senior sea-
son.

Mixed bag of receivers and DBs for Venice


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

It's not that the Venice High
School football team doesn't
have much experience at wide
receiver and defensive back. It's
more like they have a lot of inex-
perience.
Of 12 defensive backs on the
Indians' roster, only three have
any varsity game experience
outside of the spring game with
Tarpon Springs. But two of
those, junior quarterback Trey
Burton and senior running back
Dri Archer, won't be seeing a lot
of minutes on defense. That
leaves Venice with junior free
safety Justin Grant and a hodge-
podge group of nine players that
haven't played a lot of varsity
football.
"We're expecting big things
from Justin back there. The rest
has absolutely zero experience,"
head coach John Peacock said.
"But I think Robert Fordham's
going to be great. Josh Boyle's
doing a good job. (Evan) Boone's
doing a good job."
This is what happens when
you ask Peacock about his
defensive backs. He just rattles
off a list of names. The Indians
plan to use just about everybody
they have in the secondary this
season, allowing them to keep
fresh legs in the game despite
the fact that all of them also play
wide receiver.
Peacock said Grant and
Fordham are his starters at wide
receiver and that Grant has a
lock on the free safety spot, but
that everybody is going to see
the field on both sides of the ball.
Boone, Max Brandow, Mike


SUN PHOTOS BY TRIPP MILLER
Receiver David Williams cuts back to get to the ball in practice last week.
Williams will be one of many receivers and defensive backs who see the
field this year.


Bishop, Tommy Farr, Josh Boyle,
Joe Maggio, David Williams and
Joey Gaither are all listed on the
roster as WR/DB.
"We've got a whole handful of
them where you can just shake a
bag up and pull two corners
out," Peacock said. "There's not a
whole lot of drop off."
The key in the secondary is
keeping Burton off the field.
That's something Peacock thinks
Venice can achieve thanks to
the progression of Grant this
offseason.
"I don't think we're going to
have to use Trey the way Justin
Grant's been doing," he said.


"He's really stepped it up a
notch. There's a huge difference
between the kid mentally and
attitude-wise from last year to
this year. We're not really wor-
ried about that free safety
spot."
Coaches are still looking for a
corner to step up and play at
Archer's level. "We can always
put Dri in at corner, but I think
those other guys are going to be
able to do it," Peacock said.
At wide receiver, the biggest
concern is the unit's ability to
actually catch the football.
Having worked in seven-on-
seven drills all summer, the


Venice High School receiver Robert
Fordham looks this one in during
practice last week. The senior will
likely start at wide receiver and
defensive back this season.

receiving corps knows their
routes. Despite lack of experi-
ence, they know the plays. They
just have to learn to hold onto
the football. There has been visi-
ble improvement from the
spring to the fall especially
with Fordham.
"Fordham caught everything
today," Peacock said after one
practice last week. "I couldn't
believe it. I don't know what
happened to him ... We are going
to get better catching the ball.
For some reason when we put
that helmet on we have a little
drop off. Hopefully they'll get
back to where they were over the
summer."

Talent-rich golf team preps for 2008


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

This time last year, Venice
High School golf coach Marty
Tarala was predicting an unde-
feated season and a trip to the
state tournament.
This year, he's not being quite
so bold. Despite returning six
players from a team that missed
the state tournament by just two
strokes last year, Tarala isn't
making any outlandish predic-
tions.
"We won't have a losing sea-
son, I guarantee that," he said.
"We'll win at least three-quar-
ters of our matches, if not
more."
Tim Garofalo, Spencer
Dunford, Tyler Jones, David
Panfil, Kyle Phillips and Erick
Bennett are all back for 2008.
Garofalo, Dunford and Bennett
made up three of the five
Venice players at the District
2A-14 and Region 2A-5 tourna-
ments. Gone are Billy Stevens
and Eric Dobitsch from that
group, but Kyle Collison and
Tyler Jones could easily step in
to replace the void.
Garofalo and Dunford will
likely compete for the No. 1 slot.
Collison, who tied Garofalo for
the low score (-2) in tryouts, and
Panfil figure to compete with
Bennett for the No. 3 slot.


Bennett made the team by
the skin of his teeth, having to
shoot a 36 on day four of tryouts,
but he's a gamer. Bennett beat
out senior Brian Doyle for a spot
in the district and regional tour-
naments as a sophomore last
season.
Rounding out the varsity
roster are David Panfil, Frank
Perilli and Austin McCaffrey. To
make the varsity team, players
had to have an average score
below 40 over the course of
three days. Tarala attributes
the early season lows to work
and competitive play in the
offseason.
"The nice thing is that these
guys have been playing in a lot of
tournaments," he said. "They've
been playing under good pres-
sure and they've been perform-
ing well with that."
It's not his own team that's
keeping Tarala from predicting
an undefeated season and a
state title. The Indians certain-
ly have the talent to do that.
The coach doesn't know what
other teams have in store for
them, so that's why he's not
taking any guesses. No matter
what the other guys have,
though, Tarala says his Indians
will at least be in the running
for the big prize.
'Am I going to tell you that
we're going to win everything?

Fish know when a storm is coming


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST

Just ask any fish and it will
tell you when a storm is on its
way.
They go bananas the day
before a storm hits. It happened


again Monday as Tropical
Storm Fay approached. Glen of
Bubba's Pressure Cleaning
phoned me to tell me about the
action at the Venice Municipal
Pier. The snook were constantly
chasing the bait in the shallow
water. Everywhere he looked,
he could see the action.
The weather was perfect. It
was the calm before the storm.
Unfortunately, the pier was
empty except for about three
fishermen.
I remember about 10 years
ago the same thing happened to
me at the pier. That time it was
the mackerel that went crazy. I
was hooking them on just about
every cast for several hours.
My friend, Marvin, also
phoned me Monday. He lives on


the beach and said that hun-
dreds of pelicans were diving
about 100 feet off the beach. He
would look up or down the
beach and see the same thing.
I can remember the redfish
going nuts at the pier and the
Venice Jetties. It just lasts for a
day or two and then gets back to
normal.
Fortunately, Fay never did
what they were predicting.
Well, I have hours of work tak-
ing about 50 plants and a dozen
other things back outside. I'm
tired just thinking about it. We'll
talk again next week.

County health clinic expanding its services


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Four years after it
opened, the pace is con-
stant and space is limited at
the Sarasota County Health
Department's North Port
clinic.
The clinic recently
received a three-year, $1.8
million grant from the fed-
eral Health Resources and
Services Administration to
help operate it. The clinic
served 4,000 uninsured,
underinsured and finan-
cially disadvantaged resi-
dents in the past year,
including nearly 1,200
patient visits in July.
"I can assure you we are
turning people away every
minute," said Leah H.
McCallister, clinic manag-
er. That was especially true
this month with back-to-
school physical.
"It's just sad. We're see-
ing so many more people
who have never before
applied for Medicaid or
food stamps or sought
health care, coming in.
"Their husbands have
been plumbers or roofers
all their lives and they
have never asked for any
type of assistance. It's very
humbling to see all of
them come through, just
devastated by the down-
turn in the economy."
The clinic, at 6950
Outreach Way (formerly
6950 Pan American Drive),
one of four operated by
the Sarasota County
Health Department, has
grown with North Port,
providing primary health-
care, pharmacy and dental
services to low-income
infants, children and
adults.
"It's incredible, the
folks who are at this clinic,
and the numbers have
just continued to esca-
late" since 2004," said Jack
Donoghue, a member of
the clinic's advisory
board. "It's absolutely well
beyond capacity."

Although her small office was supposed to be temporary, two years later eligibility clerk
Marilyn Jones continues to work closely with residents like Nadezhda Rokovets at the
Sarasota County Health Department's North Port clinic.


Bigger and better
To handle the growth,
the health department is
using county funds and a
grant from the Gulf Coast
Community Foundation
of Venice to renovate and
enlarge the clinic.
Two porticos will be
enclosed and a 2,000-
square-foot addition will be
constructed in the back, for
a total of 10,500 square feet.
The HRSA grant process
is highly competitive, with
other North Port agencies
competing for dollars for

served populations across
the country.
More than 800 appli-
cations were submitted
nationally in 2006 after
the major hurricanes of
2004 and 2005 when
North Port was initially
denied.
Every day the clinic sees
about 45 clients for prima-
ry health care. Another 20
people walk away without
being served. With only
two healthcare providers
- typically a physician
and a nurse practitioner -
and five exam rooms, there


are not enough resources
to meet the demand.
But after expansion,
there will be 18 exam
rooms and five health-
care providers. McCallister
also will expand the nurs-
ing and support staff.
North Port has many
health-care needs that are
being met by several health
care providers, organiza-
tions and boards.

and North Port Social
Services moved into the

Sarasota Memorial
Healthcare System has
partially funded primary
healthcare for uninsured
residents over the years
at the clinic, which will
be purchased by the
county in October.
Open to suggestions
Renovation will include
the health department tak-
ing over parts of the build-
ing currently occupied by
North Port Social Services,
which is moving to a new,
two-story building next
door, in September. Many
of the social-service pro-
grams that use the building
will also move next door.
The 2,000-square-foot
addition will be used for a
smoking-cessation pro-
gram, which resulted from
a state grant.
The Sarasota County
Health Department also
operates a clinic in the
South County Resource
Center off U.S. 41 in South
Venice. Staff moves back


and forth between the
North Port and Venice clin-
ics, depending on need.
Renovation of the North
Port clinic would take
too long for staff there to
be successfully integrat-
ed into the South Venice
clinic. Many clients who
have transportation strug-
gles could not get there.
Originally they hoped
they could work amid the
renovations, but now have
to rent another facility
during construction. No
start date for construction
has been announced.
McCallister's dream is a
temporary clinic would be
a vacated medical facility,
3,000-4,000 square feet,
but they are prepared to
"make do."
Donoghue, who also is
administrative director of
Peace River/North Port
Healthpark, and others
are currently looking for
temporary clinic space to
rent for about four to six
months.
"We're very open to any
suggestions of space avail-
ability," Donoghue said.

Though Venice

pretty calm.

FEATURE EDITOR

J wo Venice couples cele-
brated their 72nd wed-
ding anniversary this
year.
The couples have many
things in common. They both
live in mobile home parks. Both
men had major health prob-
lems some years ago. Both hus-
bands served as president of
their individual parks and both
wives also held leadership jobs
in the parks. Both men served
on the seas (one in the
Maritime service and one in the
U.S. Navy) during World War II
and both couples have two
adult children. They all played
golf and did their share of vol-
unteering for many good caus-
es. Both husbands say their
wives are cooks and though in
their mid-90s, the two wives are
still cooking daily and using
fresh ingredients in their recipes
rather than canned goods.
Dorothy and Ralph Engle
The Great Depression may
have served as a matchmaker
for Dorothy and Ralph Engle.
Born in Chicago, Ralph was
raised in Muskegon, Mich.
Dorothy was born in Cadillac,
but moved to Muskegon to live
with her aunt and help care for
her aunt's children. That was
just before the Depression.
'A bunch of people got
together and went to the
beach," Dorothy said. The
beach was on Lake Michigan
and one of the people in the
"bunch" was Ralph.
They were married on May
30, 1936.
Both had finished high
school. He was working for his
father's butcher shop as a meat

end and, just as things were
really looking bright, he was
drafted.
Ralph had one alternative -
volunteer for the Maritime ser-


vice.
"It was about a year until
Germany surrendered," Ralph
said. "I was stationed in Sheep's
Head Bay in NewYork City and I
was near water. Before I fin-
ished basic training I was
brought into the cooking and
baking school to teach the
trainees how to cut meat.
"We were a division of the
Coast Guard in those days."
Some of those people he
trained were lost in the North
Sea, off Germany, before the
war ended.
Finally, when it ended, the
Engles moved to Grand Rapids.
She worked with Camp Fire
Girls. He worked for a heating
company for a year or two and
then opened his own business
as a heating contractor for both
residential and commercial cus-
tomers. Soon he was president
of the association of such con-
tractors in Grand Rapids, and
the children were growing up.
Everything was rosy, until
Ralph had a health crisis. He
sold the business and did not
work for three or four years.
When he went back to work it
was in real estate. He was both a
salesman and a broker from
1961 to 1981.
In 1963, Dorothy left the
Camp Fire Girls to join the Farm
Credit Bank.
In 1967, he joined Citizens
Mortgage Corp. traveling 50,000
miles a year as manager of a ter-
ritory that included the Upper
Peninsula and Western
Michigan. The next year,
despite all that traveling, they
found their way to Venice, pur-
chasing a home at Colonial
Manor. They put a new home
on their lot after a tornado went
through the park in 1978.
"We

were on vacation for our
anniversary," she said. "We


came back and learned our unit
was damaged.
"It was a rental park at the
time."
When the rents doubled over
the next 10 years, the Engles
and six other families led the
effort to buy the park, which
they finally did in 1987. The cost
was $2 million.
"We had 45 days to raise
$600,000 for the bank and the
closing costs," he said.
They raised $750,000 and
closed on April 30 that year.

2B SUN NEWSPAPERS

YEARS from Page 1 B
in the engineering depart-
ment.
He is a 60-year member
of the Masonic Lodge in
Stroudsburg and served in
the U.S. Navy during World
War II.
They made their first
trip to Venice in 1940.
Traveling with his parents
and her mother, the Meix-
ells stayed in Miami Beach
and then crossed the old
Alligator Alley and headed
up the west coast on their
way back to Pennsylvania.
The couple had their
first child, a boy, in 1943,
just before Kenneth enlist-
ed in the Navy.
"He was sick from day
one," Mary said.
The youngster lived
until about a year after his
father returned from the
war.
"He was the first baby
given penicillin," Kenneth
said. "I was a medical
corpsman and penicillin
was new then. It didn't
help."
A few years later, the
couple had a daughter
they named Lois Ann, and
then a son, named Gary
Lee.
They traveled before the
children were born and
they traveled with them
too, taking two cross-
country trips by car -
educational adventures for
the whole family. Kenneth
said that union printers
posted their overtime and
other printers could come
into their shop and work
off the overtime, which
would then give them
longer vacations. Some
years he had as much as
six or seven weeks vaca-
tion time. Most of it was
used for family travel.
'After the kids left the
nest, we went every-
where," she said. "We went
to Europe and to South
America, to all the states
and to all the provinces of
Canada."
They also still came to
Venice once in a while, tak-
ing the ferry across to
Clearwater in the years
before there was a Skyway
Bridge.
They also bowled and
played golf and, after they
moved to Venice, she
played competitive shuf-
fleboard.
A few years after he
retired, a doctor told him
to move to Florida.
Never snowbirds, the
couple came to visit one
winter for five months but
ended up buying the
home in which they still
live, two weeks after their


WEDNESDAY, AUG. 20, 2008


arrival.
Diagnosed with high
blood pressure and other
problems, Kenneth had
been advised to take it easy
and enjoy what time he
had left. That was about 27
years ago, he said. His
father died at 53 and her
father at 27. Both mothers
died at 76. Kenneth and
Mary, at 95 and 92, are still
driving, maintaining their
own home and keeping
active in the community
with cards and meetings
and social events.
"I attribute it to Mary's
cooking," he said. "She
never uses canned goods.
"We both like juice" she
said. "I make it from fresh
fruit every winter and
freeze it for use in the sum-
mer."
Something else they do
regularly is to renew their
vows. Their album con-
tains several certificates
attesting to that. The latest
occurred on Valentine's
Day this year. They were
the longest wed in the cer-
emony and they are the
longest wed in their park.
1936 was a good year for
the Engles and the Meix-
ells. The Depression was
ending. They all had jobs.
Gasoline was 10 cents a
gallon, milk was 48 cents a
gallon and you could buy a
new car for $780 and a new
house for less than $4,000.
Diamonds are in order
for the 75th, which will be
here before you know it.
Happy anniversary.

A Your void in partner's suit is a lia-
"- ability, not an asset. Still, you have a
prime 17 count and a hand that can
play in any one of three suits, so we
see no reason why you should not
continue to describe your hand. Bid
two diamonds.

Q 1 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
SAQJ954 K108oAQ1044Void
Your right-hand opponent opens the
bidding with one heart. What action
do you take?
A We know that, these days, an
overcall can be made with a pretty
good hand. However, we feel that this
one is a tad strong for that action. We
would start with a double and then
bid spades at our next turn.
Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
AA84 95 o AK10 7 .K KQ85
Partner opens the bidding with one
heart. What do you respond?
A With a balanced 16-18 point hand
and a doubleton in opener's suit,
there is a tendency to jump to three
no trump. However, that should be
reserved for hands with a 4-3-3-3 pat-
tern. A ruffing value makes slam a
more likely possibility should partner
have a fit for one of your suits.
Respond two clubs.

A It is tempting to make a game try
because, should partner have a fit for
diamonds, the hand could easily
make 10 tricks. However, you have a
minimum opening bid and, should
partner be unable to help in dia-
monds, there are too many losers and
even three spades would be in jeop-
ardy. Pass.

Your right-hand opponent opens the
bidding with one heart. What action
do you take?
A You have a very good hand, espe-
cially since the ace-queen of hearts is
poised behind the opening bidder.
However, the quality of your anchor
suit is poor, and that should dissuade
you from doubling and then bidding
spades over partner's likely club
response. Your only sensible action is
to overcall one spade.
Q 5 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
4QJ76 AK652 o 9 4 .Q 7
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
1 Pass 14 Pass
9
What do you bid?
A You have very good support for
partner's suit but despite that, a mini-
mum opening bid. Since partner can
have as few as 6 points, to do any-
thing more than make a simple raise
courts disaster. Bid two spades.

That's what they say


JUNE CASAGRANDE
A WORD, PLEASE


Fred in La Crescenta,
Calif., recently wrote with
a question:
"I'm sure that [grammar
expert Mignon Fogarty]
must understand the prin-
ciple of agreement of a
pronoun with its ante-
cedent; yet, in response to
your question, 'Do you get
grief from grammar
snobs?' she responds, 'The
more rude someone is, the
more likely they are to be
wrong.' Would it be rude of
me to request a word of
comment about her
inconsistency?"
Steve, also in La Cre-
scenta, also took notice:
"Be sure to let your readers
know how many e-mails
you get concerning the
July 16 column in which
grammar expert Mignon
Fogarty said, 'The more
rude someone is, the more
likely they are to be
wrong.' She was not rude
... but she was wrong."
Well, Steve, it was just
you and Fred. Perhaps it's
a La Crescenta thing. Or
perhaps you and Fred are
all I have and I'd better be
nice to you. Either way,
you raise a good question.
For those not familiar
with the issue called "pro-
noun-antecedent agree-
ment," the idea is that sin-
gular things are referred to
with singular pronouns.


Consider, "When a man
invests wisely, he builds
his future." The noun
"man," is singular, so the
pronouns that refer this
antecedent are "he" and
"his," are also singular.
Compare that to, "When
men invest wisely, they
build their future."
But what about when
you don't know the sex of
the person being dis-
cussed? In, "When some-
one criticizes, they are
often wrong," the word
"someone" is singular but
it's being referred to by a
plural, "they." By all logic,
this is not logical. But does
that mean it's wrong?
A comment I got on my
blog recently may interest
or possibly infuriate Fred
and Steve.
'They' has been used
as a common-gender and
common-number pro-
noun by the best writers
for 700 years," commented
a reader who didn't give
his name. Therefore, this
reader argued, the real
question is: When will the
usage mavens stop object-
ing to it?
Then there's Bryan
Garner, author of "Garner's
Modern American Usage"
and portions of the vener-
able "Chicago Manual of
Style." Garner does not
recommend using "they"
or "their" to refer to a sin-
gular. He doesn't like it. But
he doesn't say it's wrong,
either.
"Why is this usage be-
coming so common?"
Garner asks. "It is the most
convenient solution to the
single biggest problem in
sexist language the
generic masculine pro-
noun."
In other words, the
alternatives stink.
Yes, you could always


assume that "someone" is
a he. "When someone crit-
icizes, he is usually
wrong." You could assume
that "someone" is a she.
You could fudge the issue
by always writing "he or
she" (or "him or her" or
"his or hers") every time.
You could find ways to
recast your sentence to
avoid putting yourself in
this position in the first
place. But often, none of
those options is as attrac-
tive as picking a plural like
"they."
"Where noun-pronoun
disagreement can be
avoided, avoid it," Garner
writes.
"Where it can't be
avoided, resort to it cau-
tiously because some peo-
ple may doubt your litera-
cy." (Garner did not speci-
fy, however, whether those
people have their head-
quarters in La Crescenta.)
Of course, Garner is just
one source. So here's an-
other one even tougher
to refute: "Webster's New
World College Dictionary."
Webster's third definition
for "they" says it's "used
sometimes as a generic
form with a collective an-
tecedent such as 'every-
one,' 'somebody,' or 'no
one' to avoid the mascu-
line implications of gener-
ic 'he.' "
Webster's even gives an
example, "Everyone thinks
'they' are right about this
issue."
I can't put it any better
than that.

Hypochondriac's sad song


becomes an irritating refrain


DEAR ABBY
COLUMNIST


DEAR ABBY: How do
you deal with a hypochon-
driac? My brothers and I
lost our dear mother to
cancer when we were in
our teens. Daddy has re-
cently been diagnosed
with a pernicious form of
melanoma, which has a
low survival rate.
Our father has been
married to his second wife,
"Doris," for 20 years. Doris
is a textbook hypochon-
driac. She denies it, of
course, and insists that her
health is bad. Now Daddy
is battling cancer. He and
Doris came to visit his
three children and multi-
ple grandchildren. Doris
talked about her head cold
the entire visit, and our
time with Daddy was cut
short because she needed
to be driven back to the
hotel.
I'm sure Doris loves my
father, and after 20 years of
marriage, they're certainly
used to each other. But
now that Daddy is facing
death, I'm having trouble
supporting Doris' emo-
tional needs because her
hypochondria is so irritat-
ing. Still, Dad wouldn't
want us to abandon his
second wife, despite her
psychosomatic quirks.
What do you suggest? -

NEEDS HELP UP NORTH
DEAR NEEDS HELP:
You can try talking Doris
out of her hypochondria
until you're blue in the
face, but it will only make
her try harder to convince
you that she's sick so
stop trying. Instead, every
time you see her, tell her
she looks TERRIBLE;
you've never seen her look
worse. It's what she's "dy-
ing" to hear, and she'll love
you for it!
DEAR ABBY: My wom-
en friends have all known
each other more than 25
years. One of our group,
"Dottie," (age 76) was a
very astute businesswom-
an when she worked with
us years ago before we all
retired.
About three years ago,
Dottie began behaving
oddly. She couldn't re-
member what she ordered
at lunch in a restaurant
and lied to us about biz-
arre things. She also be-
came argumentative.
Recently she has with-
drawn from our group
dates. Now she no longer
answers her phone and,
on the rare occasion that
one of us has gotten hold
of her and offered to come
over, she refused to answer



- ---


the door.
Dottie is quite wealthy.
She likes to drink at her
neighborhood bar every
night, and once when one
of us called, we heard a
man in the background
saying, "That's enough.
Hang up now," which she
did. We're worried about
her. What options do we
have? Is there anyone we
can contact in order to
help her? -WORRIED IN
NEWYORK
DEAR WORRIED: Be-
cause Dottie appears to
have become not only for-
getful and delusional but
also reclusive, you have
reason to be worried. Con-
tact your nearest Area
Agency on Aging or the
Department of Social Ser-
vices, and tell them what's
going on.
A social worker should
be able to determine if
your friend is in trouble,
and get her the help she
needs if she is.

Two buses filled with
Tampa Bay Rays and
Cleveland Indians fans
partied their way to


Tropicana Field recently.
Jake Jacobson and Scott
Hayes of WSRQ radio
added to the fun by con-
ducting raffles on board
with fabulous prizes,
including a chance to host
a show with the duo.
Chuck Paine, Karen
Yen and Lisa Larson were
among the Bogey's staff
members on the buses.
They made sure fans had
their tickets, drinks and
boxed dinners.
At the Trop, each fan
received an official Rays
hat. Even Cleveland In-
dians fans Mark Vasilchek
and Randy Etzkorn wore


their Rays hats, admitting
that while their hearts
would always belong to
the Indians, they also
cheer for the Rays.
Henry Holzapfel caught
a foul ball. He promptly
gave it to a little boy sitting
a few rows away. Everyone
celebrated a great game
with plenty of peanuts and
Cracker Jacks, and on top
of it all, the Rays won.
