STAFF REPORT

Sarasota County was one
of just five city and county
organizations that received
the Communities for a
Lifetime award Thursday at
the Florida Council on
Aging's annual conference
in Orlando.
The award honors com-
munities that improve life
for the elderly, according to
Dianne Shipley, spokesper-
son for the county's health
and human services depart-
ment.
"This is a big initiative,
with many components to
it," Shipley said. "Everything
from looking at how to


make sidewalks, county
facilities and intersections
more pedestrian friendly for
older folks to sensitivity
training for sheriff's depart-
ment and county and
checklists for developers."
The effort assists Florida
cities by providing oppor-
tunities for all residents to
contribute to the better-
ment of their communi-
ties.
Award winners joining
Sarasota County were the
Orange County Commission
on Aging, the city of Talla-
hassee and Leon County, the
city of Gulfport and the
Brevard County Commis-
sion on Aging.


Estimate your Social Security benefits online


FROM THE SOCIAL SECURITY
ADMINISTRATION

Michael J. Astrue, commission-
er of Social Security, has unveiled
a new online calculator at
www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator
that will provide immediate and
personalized benefit estimates
to help people plan for their
retirement.
The Retirement Estimator is
tied to a person's actual Social
Security earnings record and elim-
inates the need to manually key in
years of earnings information.
The Retirement Estimator is
interactive, allowing the user to
compare different retirement


options. For example, a person can
change retirement dates or expect-
ed future earnings. Individuals also
can print out up to three different
scenarios at one time, in addition
to information about their bene-
fits at age 62 (current age if
older), full retirement age and
age 70.
Best of all, the Retirement
Estimator is secure. The only
thing it provides online is retire-
ment benefit estimates. It does
not show the earnings record
information on which the final
benefit estimate was calculated,
nor does it reveal other personal
information.
"The Retirement Estimator is


just one of many things we are
doing to make more information
and services people need avail-
able over the Internet," Astrue
said. "We recently unveiled a new
home page at www.socialsecurity.
gov that reduces visual clutter
and is easier to navigate. In the
fall, we will introduce the public
to our next initiative: a total over-
haul of our online retirement
application that will reduce the
average filing time from 45 min-
utes to about 15 minutes.
"These initiatives will help us
better handle the baby boomer
wave and make it easier for the
public to do business with us
online."

SUN NEWSPAPERS 3A


City to seek public housing funds


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice City Council may be gear-
ing up to become more involved in
public housing.
It would be a new policy direction
for the city, which in recent years
hadn't been inclined to become an
active landlord.
Up to now, the city's effort has
been limited to appointing board
members to the Venice Housing
Authority, which runs the low-
income Grove Terrace Apartments.
Grove Terrace is currently vacant
while VHA pursues Housing and
Urban Development and other fund-
ing or development opportunities to
renovate or rebuild the complex.
Public housing is the former
vocation of Council Member Sue
Lang, who worked in the field for
decades in Connecticut. In the past
she requested the city increase fund-
ing to assist VHA in its redevelop-
ment effort.
Up for discussion at Tuesday's
council meeting is a grant request to
rejoin the Sarasota Consortium in
2011 and to nominate a city staff or
council member to participate in
discussions with Sarasota County
"for the deliverance of future county
housing programs," according to the
agenda.
Joining the consortium should
open up new funding opportunities
for public housing programs.
The immediate grants being


applied for would go toward
stormwater improvements at Venice
Municipal Mobile Home Park for
two years, followed by three years of
grants for infrastructure improve-
ments identified by VHA. Grants are
for $98,000 per year, with 20 percent
going toward administrative costs.
The consortium would administer
the grants.
Tramonto Vista Park
Venice City Council will have an
opportunity this week to bring some
finality to what the proposed
Tramonto Vista Park will eventually
look like.
Topping its agenda is a presenta-
tion featuring Magnum Builders, the
design-build group hired to bring
the park to reality.
The park, a former wastewater
plant bordering the south end of
Sharky's on the Pier, had been the
source of much discussion last year.
A debate ensued over whether it
should be a "passive" park with few
amenities or "active" with an enter-
tainment pavilion, volleyball courts
and more.
Council members were leaning
toward a compromise, adding a few
amenities, but then put the issue on
the back burner and hired a design-
build firm to flesh out the details.
Tuesday the public will get a
chance to see what Beebe Design
Studio and Magnum Builders have
come up with as far as amenities
options and associated costs.


Airport board
Council will vote on an ordinance
to abolish the city's Airport Advisory
Board. The ordinance was intro-
duced at council's last meeting.
It's the culmination of what had
become an increasingly adversarial
relationship between the boards.
Earlier efforts to develop some of the
400-plus acres of "excess" airport
lands created a groundswell of
opposition, spilling over into discus-
sions of proposed airport improve-
ments and an airport master plan
that some council members said
was too pro-growth.
City council halted work on the
draft airport master plan prior to the
last council election in November
that swept in three new members.
They've been reworking the master
plan, airport layout plan and land
development plan ever since.
Also on the agenda is a presen-
tation by the Venice Jet Center on
its plans to build four corporate
hangars.
More items
Planning and Zoning Director
Tom Slaughter will make a presenta-
tion on school concurrency.
Council Member Vicki Noren will
bring up for discussion the subject
of emergency vehicle access to gated
communities.
Clifford Merz, of the University of
South Florida, College of Marine
Science, will discuss coastal ocean
monitoring and protection systems.


Venice seniors express

health care concerns


JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

Residents of the Village
On The Isle retirement
community gathered Thurs-
day to discuss Medicare
and Social Security's future.
Their guest was Max
Richtman, executive vice
president of the National
Committee to Preserve
Social Security and Medi-
care.
Richtman addressed an
audience of about 80 resi-
dents to speak in support
of retaining Social Security
as a government program
and expanding national
health care policies.
Richtman said govern-
ment-operated Social Sec-
urity trust funds are much
less prone to risk than pri-
vate investment accounts.
"It wouldn't be in the
interest of America's older
population to allow young
Wall Street traders to invest
in our retirement," he said.
Richtman also supports
making health care more
accessible to children as


well as the elderly.
"The people who are
most prone to illness," he
said, "should never be
turned away by any doctor
because of limited insur-
ance coverage."
VOTI resident Louis E.
Crown said he is a strong
supporter of socializing
health care.
"I believe in the long-
term that the United States
should have a compulsory,
universal health care sys-
tem which covers all of its
citizens and residents, in a
single-payer, tax-support-
ed system," he said.
Another audience mem-
ber said she is concerned
about the rise in the cost of
living for seniors. Richtman
said that his organization
supports a bill that would
base cost-of-living increas-
es on what seniors pay for
their living expenses.
Most in attendance
applauded proposals to
expand health care cover-
age and retain Social
Security as a government
program.

OUR VIEW


We recommend Filipkowski and Mederos-Jacobs


With the mud-slinging seemingly
concentrated in the races for
sheriff and property appraiser,
who would have thought the dirtiest
campaign mailer would appear in the
contest for public defender?
After interviewing the two Repub-
lican candidates, we thought Ron Filip-
kowski was the clear choice. Although
he hasn't worked in the PD's office, he
has substantial experience in criminal
defense work and has run a division of a
United States Attorney's office. And,
most significant to us, he has a much
better grasp of the PD office's needs and
shortcomings than Larry Eger, who has
worked in it all of his legal career.
Filipkowski has a 10-item platform for
improving the office, including recruiting
more women and minorities (no one in
the office speaks Spanish, he said), creat-
ing aWeb site and convening a summit of
treatment programs to make it easier to
get people the help they need to get clean
and stay out of the justice system. We
thought that was impressive.
Eger certainly is more familiar with
the workings of the PD's office and told
us he wants to put his own "signature"
on things, but he was short of ideas to
do that. He'd try to create a new court
for people imprisoned for technical vio-
lation of the conditions of their proba-
tion, getting them through the system
more quickly. That's a good plan, but
otherwise, electing him seems like it
would be maintaining the status quo
when there are major issues to be
addressed.
If we had been on the fence, a cam-
paign flier Eger approved and sent out
would have made our choice easy. It


quotes Filipkowski out of context from a
court transcript allegedly admitting to
incompetence in a murder trial. In real-
ity, Filipkowski was telling the judge he
was unprepared to rebut evidence that
the judge decided could be admitted
after the two sides had rested their
cases. Eger, who also would have
claimed that he was getting blindsided,
doesn't mention that Filipkowski won
the case, which he handled for free.
It doesn't matter if the flier was a
lapse in judgment or a window into Eg-
er's true character. We expect the high-
est ethics of candidates for legal system
offices, and Eger's flier falls far short of
that standard. We can't tolerate such
tactics.
We recommend Ron Filipkowski in
the Republican primary for public de-
fender.
Two excellent lawyers are vying for a
new judgeship in the 12th Judicial
Circuit, which serves Sarasota, Manatee
and DeSoto counties.
Connie Mederos-Jacobs and Gilbert
Smith both have years of experience
and would bring a variety of skills to the
bench. But we think Mederos-Jacobs
has the edge in courtroom proficiency,
so we give her our recommendation.
The difference between them is sim-
ply that Mederos-Jacobs is a trial attor-
ney while Smith is an attorney who
sometimes does trials. She has a back-
ground primarily in criminal law (the
person who is elected is slated to go into
the criminal law division), while Smith
has none. She also has a deeper back-
ground in family and juvenile matters,
probate and personal injury cases,
which have made up a small part of


Smith's practice at most.
He points out that criminal cases
only make up one-third of the circuit's
caseload, but even though he has more
experience in civil law matters, most of
it has been outside the courtroom and
inside it he has had few if any jury trials.
We recommend Connie Mederos-
Jacobs in the nonpartisan primary for
the 12th Judicial Circuit.
In the lone Sarasota County Charter
Review Board nomination to be decid-
ed in the primary, incumbent Cathy
Layton faces challenger Stephen Aiken.
We think Layton has done a good job
and probably would recommend her
against most opponents from her party,
but Aiken isn't even a credible candi-
date. His platform is a mishmash of
issues outside the CRB's jurisdiction.
We recommend Cathy Layton in the
Republican primary for Sarasota Coun-
ty Charter Review Board District 2.
We didn't get a chance to interview all
of the candidates in the two contested
Republican Sarasota Memorial Hospital
Board races. (William Jensen told us he
is dropping out in favor of Thomas
Towler in a third race, though his name
will still appear on the ballot.) In these
races our recommendations are based
on questionnaires the candidates an-
swered for us.
Richard Merritt and John Prade face
off for Northern Seat 1. Prade has sub-
stantial business experience and
strongly favors a hospital campus in
North Port, but we give more weight to
Merritt's 24 years of service on the board
of a hospital similar to SMH in Illinois.
We recommend Richard Merritt in
the Republican primary for Sarasota


Memorial Hospital Board Northern Seat
1.
Dave Couch and Bruce DiGiovanni
are seeking Central Seat 1. DiGiovanni
has vast computer experience and
could be an asset to the board in that
area, but we think Couch could con-
tribute more based on his service in the
hospital's auxiliary, including time as
president.
We recommend Dave Couch in the
Republican primary for Sarasota Mem-
orial Hospital Board Central Seat 1.
Voters also get to decide whether to
amend the county charter to change the
timing of referendum votes and require
economic impact statements on pro-
posed amendments.
Both amendments are good ideas in
theory and generated a lot of support
when under discussion. There's a price
tag both on voting to change the charter
and actually doing it, and it's logical to
know the cost before we make up our
minds.
But the amendments themselves are
flawed and have drawn widespread
opposition. From putting an expiration
date on petition signatures to leaving
open the time period for the supervisor
of elections to review them to giving the
county commission the power to delay
a vote, these amendments are a classic
example of a good idea poorly executed.
The county says that the amend-
ments would be implemented in a way
to do what they're intended to do, not
what they could be read to allow; we say
the amendments should say what they
really mean.
We recommend a "No" vote on Saras-
ota County Charter amendments 1 and 2.


Drive smart, save money


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


Sarasota County is par-
ticipating in a national
contest to see which coun-
ty can get the most people
to save gas and become
the most energy efficient.
The contest is being
promoted by the Walmart
Foundation and 16 other
private and public part-
ners. It is called the Drive
$mart Challenge.
The idea of this cam-
paign is to get you to use
energy-saving ideas that
can save a lot of gas. You
are invited to take the chal-
lenge at www.drivesmart
challenge.org.
I have taken it, and it is
amazing how much gas
you can save if you follow
the suggestions. If you
complete the challenge,
you get some money sav-
ing coupons from Auto-
Zone and other places. It
could be worth your while.
You only have to answer
six questions.
The first question
shows that if you keep
your tire pressure at the
right amount, you will save
3 percent of the gas you
use on average, 20 gal-
lons, some $60 to $80.
Next, it shows that if you
use energy-conserving mo-
tor oil you can save another
percent or two maybe 10
gallons, or $30-$40.
If you drive just 5 per-
cent fewer miles, you
might save 30 gallons, or
up to $100.
Being less aggressive
can really cut the gas us-
age. Don't go so fast, don't
accelerate so fast and just
drive more cautiously.
Former council mem-
ber Jim Woods and wife
Karen had a little contest
to see who could drive the
same car on a full tank and
do the best. Jim said that


Karen drove like she had
an egg under her foot and,
needless to say, he was
having a hard time beating
her.
Driving more sensibly
can save another 30 gal-
lons another $100. This
means not going out as
often, combining trips, car
pooling and things like
that.
The last item on the
quiz is to lessen the load in
the car. Removing 100 ex-
tra pounds will save 2 per-
cent, or 12 gallons. In my
case weight loss would do
a lot.
I have seen it recom-
mended that you drive
with no more than a half a
tank because 10 gallons is
80 pounds.
There are other ways to
save gas. One is to use
nitrogen in your tires. This
cools the tires so they stay
at the same temperature
and don't overinflate dur-
ing driving. This some-
times comes with the pur-
chase of new tires or can
be purchased at like $10 a
tire.
Another way is to get
tires that have a coefficient
of friction that is as low as
possible to give the least
resistance. Nancy Murphy
at Pit Stop on the island
says that Michelin is one
tire manufacturer that has
developed some energy-
saving tires claiming to
save 368 gallons of gas over
the life of the tires. They
also are environmentally
friendly. This is way too
complicated to explain in
this column.
Nancy reminds me that
you should make sure your
air filter and fuel filter are
clean, as both affect the
efficiency of your engine.
She mentioned another
one I had forgotten about:
Buy your gas at the coldest
time of day. I can see it now
- setting your alarm and
heading out to get gas at 2
a.m. because at its coldest
temperature gas mole-
cules are the most com-
pact.
Another idea to make a
difference, though it will
not be quite so comfort-
able, is to not run the air

Mayor responds to latest lawsuit allegations


ED MARTIN
GUEST COLUMNIST

Although it is standard
practice not to litigate
issues in the press and I
am following that general
practice as recommended
by attorneys, I feel the
public has the right to
understand my position in
regard to the unproven
allegations in the current
lawsuit, which I am afraid
citizens may think are fac-
tually accurate.
I have not enlisted any
intermediaries in contact-
ing city council members.


Nor have I been aware that
citizens talking to me
might be doing that, if they
were, at the behest of
another member.
The activities concern-
ing the development of a
concept Airport Layout
Plan by independent citi-
zens and members of the
Venice Airport Business
Association was com-
pletely without participa-
tion with me. The city
attorney has advised me
that no violation of the
Sunshine Law was involv-
ed.
Further, sharing that
conceptual plan with FAA
officials was not to gain
their approval for the plan
but to stimulate sugges-
tions from them on how to
solve problems the city
council had with the draft
airport master plan. Each
visit was authorized spe-
cifically by city council
after open meetings, dis-


cussion and debate, and
the purpose of the city del-
egation, including me, was
clearly understood. Every-
thing about this process
involving me and city offi-
cials was public and open-
ly understood, including
reports in the press.
I have not knowingly
deleted public documents
from my computers and I
submitted, promptly,
more than 100 e-mails
from citizens to the plain-
tiff's attorney from home
e-mails. I also, in an affi-
davit and deposition,
made that statement. I
retained files of matters I
felt were public records
and submitted them; how-
ever, I had e-mail accounts
that did not save every
sent e-mail, although my
main account had that
feature.
I do not believe the two
e-mail exchanges between
Council Member John


Moore and me cited in the
filing were violations of the
Sunshine Law; they only
incidentally spoke of city
business and did not in-
volved substantive discus-
sion or debate concerning
matters which might
come before the city. Both
the city attorney and my
attorney share that view.
E-mails sent to me to
which I did not reply do
not create violations of the
Sunshine Law, since no
discussion or debate
occurred.
I know that the citizens
of Venice had and contin-
ue to have great faith in me
to represent their interests
honestly and with no
unlawful intent. I felt they
needed some support
from me for their views.
I appreciate their pa-
tience in waiting for the
resolution of this process.
Ed Martin is the mayor
of Venice.





SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A


LET 'EM HAVE IT: WHAT WILL BE THE KEY ISSUE IN THE CITY OF VENICE ELECTION THIS FALL? CALL US AT
207-1111.


Hey, the mail doesn't deliver itself

Understaffed. I've just come home from being at the post office on the island. They
have five stations. Only one was manned, by David, and he had to get the looks from
the people that were out the door. He was the only one there. I stood there and
watched six people walk out. Why do they have five stations and only one person man-
ning them when the people are waiting out the door?


Good deal. A comment
on the article on the wait-
ing game and the Nokomis
Fire Department. My hus-
band is a fireman at the fire
department, and I don't
understand why these
people just don't call the
Nokomis Fire Department
directly and ask them what
is their district area so they
would know about Knights
Trail. If they know anything
about the county and the
fire department taking
over Nokomis they real-
ly need to get their facts
straight about that.
Nokomis has been serving
this area, I believe, more
than 50 years or so. These
people really need to
respect this fire depart-
ment instead of worrying
about if the county is going

conditioner. That will
make the engine work
with less strain.
When I mentioned this
to Nancy, she reminded
me this does work but not
to do it open on the open
road. This is not because
you might get bugs in your
hair, but because it causes
a drag on the car. For the
same reason pick-up
trucks should put the tail-
gate down (assuming
nothing is in the truck
bed). All told, if you do


to take it over or should the
county take it over. If they
knew their facts and the
monies and the area and
the manpower and the
trucks, they'd see that
they've got a pretty good
deal going for them. They
need to get their facts
straight.
Needs a break. After
reading the article about
the father who was being
asked to leave the Sal-
vation Army with two chil-
dren, 1-1/2 and 8 months
of age, because he can't
prove custody of his chil-
dren and can't afford a
lawyer's fee to get the cus-
tody, I'm appalled that
there is not a lawyer in
Sarasota County that could
help this man. Christopher
Fenamore is a father trying



everything mentioned you
could save a couple hun-
dred gallons of gas.
In fact it sounds like we
have enough saving ideas
so you almost won't use
any gas, or at least it
sounds like that.
As we as a country find
ways to reduce consump-
tion, it will in fact affect the
price at the pump because
the less demand, the lower
the price.
Also, the Chinese need
more gas and we want to


to do the best for his chil-
dren. He's being a stand-up
dad, which is a rare quality
nowadays. Someone needs
to give him a break and
help him for the sake of his
children.
Missing it. Noticed that
you're not sending the
Waterline, but you're still
printing it. Sure would like
to see that in there. That
was one of the few things
that I enjoyed in the paper
because I'm a novice fish-
erman and I got a lot of
information from it. Please
reconsider and put it back
into the paper. I would
appreciate it.
Either/or. I'm just won-
dering about the enthusi-
astic crowd at Marty Black's
retirement. I wonder if
they're enthusiastic about



help them out.
Bumper sticker: When
did my wild oats turn to


Marty Black doing a great
job, or are enthusiastic and
happy to see him go.
Different funds. I saw
that they're having grants
for the butterfly population
through the county. I was
astounded that our county
is cutting teachers' jobs in
favor of butterflies. I know
they propagate crops, but
surely our children's inter-
ests are greater than some
butterflies flying around.
This is just crazy. I'd like to
see a report on it.
EDITOR'S NOTE: County
grants and school funding are
completely separate items.
Not kosher. Restaurants
that give us what we want,
flourish. Those that don't,
fail. The success of the
annual Jewish Festival
should be a clue that a New
York-style Jewish deli would
thrive. I miss being able to
get a good kosher pastrami
sandwich. I hope that
someone down here is
capable of opening one or
knows someone in New
York who is looking for such
an opportunity.

FACE from Page 1A

"It was a great idea at a
really bad time," Ball said.

Demand slips
Due to "global econom-
ic turbulence," planes
were filled to 77.6 percent
of capacity in June, 1.2 per-
cent less than one year
earlier.
Airlines are dropping
flights, abandoning con-
tracts to serve airports and
charging to check bags
and for pillows and blan-
kets.
"As a passenger and a
consumer, I'm not happy
with that," Piccolo said of
in-flight charges. "It ap-
pears that they are starting
to nickel-and-dime you to
death.
"Unfortunately, that
model seems to be work-
ing from an airline per-
spective. What airlines
started to see was, people
were willing to pay for
those conveniences."
The bad news for air-
ports' bottom line begins
where the passengers'
traveling experience be-
gins, in the terminals,
where concessions' rev-
enue is down, Ball said.
Like a jet escalating to
35,000 feet, airline ticket

brokers, are looking for
ways to mitigate the high
ticket prices as the airline
industry appears to be
headed back to the days
when only the affluent
could fly.

Fewer low fares
"Low airfares are begin-
ning to disappear," Ball
said, "and they will have to
disappear for the industry
to survive."
However, he noted, "If it
gets too pricey, people will
stop flying."
Passenger traffic de-
creased 3.6 percent at
Southwest Florida Inter-
national Airport last fiscal
year. Sarasota Bradenton
International Airport traf-
fic increased 1 percent.
It could be worse.
"We're really pleased
because it's holding its
own when you compare to
other airports across the
state and the country," Ball
said. "We're still maintain-
ing a strong diversity in the
type of air carriers that we
have. We have a great mix
of legacy carriers and low-
cost carriers.
"For us to withstand
only a decrease of 4 per-
cent, we are not doing as
bad as most."
While Sarasota Braden-
ton International Airport
is doing better than other
airports this year, Piccolo
said "unless the situation
was to change drastically,
we'll be down for the year
for the first time in four
years.


"Our trend for the past
four years has been going
up, up, up, up, up," Piccolo
said. "The last two months
we've seen it go down, and
we will continue to see a
downward trend. How
much? I'm not sure yet."

The closer
the better?
Sarasota Bradenton
competes with airports in
Fort Myers, Tampa and St.
Petersburg.
Sandy King of Braden-
ton used the Sarasota air-
port for the first time to fly
to Chicago recently.
"It's close by. I could
have gone to Tampa," King
said. "It's just more conve-
nient here. My husband
(Craig) commented that
it's very easy to go through
security here. It's a lot less
intimidating here for me."
One of Sarasota's
advantages when compet-
ing with larger airports for
customers from Sarasota,
Manatee, Charlotte and
DeSoto counties is the
high cost of automobile
fuel that makes short trips
to the smaller airport more
inviting, despite the possi-
bility of higher ticket costs.
Jeanene LaPorta, man-
ager of Air Sea and Land
Travel, 18700 Veterans
Blvd. in Port Charlotte,
said she directs most of
her flying customers to
RSW, some to Tampa and
very few to Sarasota.
"They prefer it (over
Tampa) because it's closer
to home, with the price of


gas," she said of the Fort
Myers airport.
"Low-cost carriers have
been a key factor in SRQ's
success against the larger
airlines. AirTran has been
"wildly successful," Pic-
colo said. JetBlue saw that
and followed, also suc-
cessfully.
Then large airlines like
Delta and USAir went
through bankruptcy and
emerged as low-cost air-
lines. When the pricing
became more competi-
tive, SRQ customers ended
up with more destina-
tions, more choices.
Both airports have lost
jet service due to the econ-
omy. RSW lost Frontier
service to Denver, when
that airline pulled out
many of its Florida flights
and went into bankruptcy,
Ball said.
In June, Continental
announced plans to leave
Sarasota entirely in Sep-
tember and take 10 per-
cent of its traffic away. The
airline found it would be
cheaper to leave Sarasota
and continue to pay its
lease ($600,000 per year)
than to stay at SRQ and
incur losses due to the cost
of jet fuel.
"It shows you the state
of the fuel environment
when it's cheaper to pay
rent at that rate and not fly
here," Piccolo said.
The last time airports
struggled was 2001, after
terrorists flew passenger
planes into New York's
Twin Towers, But Ball said,

The Venice High School
varsity football team throttled
the junior varsity in a
controlled scrimmage Friday
at Powell-Davis Stadium.
They face Cardinal Mooney
High School at 7:30 p.m.
Friday in the Kickoff Classic.
BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

The stat line on Friday's Venice
High School scrimmage between the
varsity and junior varsity teams looked
unlike any other from a year ago.
The Indians were a run-first at
times a run-only football team in
2007, but they seem to be much more
comfortable throwing the ball these
days. For the varsity team, which won
the game 28-7, junior quarterback
Trey Burton was 17-23 for 223 yards
and a pair of touchdowns. For the JV
squad, A.J. Rotella was 10-19 for 108
yards and a score.
"We're definitely gonna pass more,"
head coach John Peacock said. "We've
got one of the best quarterbacks in the
country. Why wouldn't we?"
The varsity team ran 26 passing
plays compared to 20 running plays.
The JV ran 19 passing plays and only
13 running plays.
Peacock admitted the Indians threw
the ball a little more than they normal-
ly would because he felt like the varsi-
ty would score on the JV every time
they ran the ball. That was close to
being the case.
Senior running back Dri Archer ran
the ball five times for 54 yards in the

afterward.


game, but was tackled only once.
Every other time he touched the ball,
the play was whistled dead when he
reached open field. Archer had no
touchdowns on the night, but it may
as well have been six (four rushing,
two receiving). He wasn't allowed to
gain more than 15 yards per touch.
Similar rules applied to Burton,
who was barred from contact in the
scrimmage. If he scrambled to escape
defenders in the backfield, the defense
was credited with a sack. No Burton
completion was allowed to go for
more than 30 yards, which makes his
223 yards all the more impressive -
even if it was only the JV team.
Burton's two touchdowns came on
a five-yard completion to junior tight
end Beckett Wales and a 30-yard com-
pletion to senior wideout Max
Brandow. Rotella connected with his
tight end on a 10-yard pass for the NJ's
only score of the night.
"I thought we caught the ball well,"
Peacock said. "Trey was making quick
reads and that's all you can ask for,
really."
The quarterback also had a touch-
down reception in the game. Burton
handed off to Archer, who then
pitched to senior wide receiver Mike


Bishop. Bishop stopped and hit a
wide-open Burton in the flat, who then
scampered in for the 19-yard score.
Even with the limitations on the
varsity offense, the Indians piled up
379 total yards.
The varsity defense didn't allow
much on the ground, and much of the
passing yardage came against the
scout team. The junior varsity team
managed only 27 rushing yards, and
that's not counting three sacks, which
were all marked at the original line of
scrimmage.
Venice gets to test out their offen-
sive firepower against a real opponent
in a live game when they take on
Cardinal Mooney High School at
Powell-Davis Stadium at 7:30 p.m.
Friday in the annual Kickoff Classic.
But that's not to say that the JV team
wasn't formidable.
"Basically, we just wanted to get the
kinks out as far as substitutions and
special teams, and we had problems,"
Peacock said. "I'm glad we did (this),
the JV team gave us a great look ...
They had some kids out there compet-
ing and they had some kids out there
hitting, so the future looks good."

Indians, Wackos


prepped for


season opener

BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

If you listen carefully, you can almost hear
Wheatly's Wackos warming up their vocal cords.
The Wackos are getting ready for the Venice
High School volleyball team's season opener
against Fort Myers High School Tuesday at 7 p.m.
in the Teepee.
"The Wheatley Wacko shirts have been going
like wildfire," head coach Brian Wheatley said.
The Wheatley's Wackos Spikers Club is a group of
Venice students that are required to attend 80
percent of home games and be very loud.
With only three returning players from last year's


5A-3 runners-up, the
Indians have had
some preparation to
do themselves. Many
will be making their
first appearance on
the varsity team.
Some of them will
be starters. Opening
with Fort Myers is
hardly a soft-toss
into the higher ranks.
"For these guys,
a lot of them it's
going to be their
first varsity experi-
ence," Wheatley said.


The Wheatley's
Wackos Spikers
Club is a group of

that are required to

of home games -
and be very loud.


"We can talk about the


fire as much as we can, but until they're in it,
they just don't understand it."
Wheatley has said that his team will have to do
a lot of growing up this season. They'll look good
at times and they'll look awful at times, but
Wheatley believes the only way to get better is to
play a tough schedule.
Fort Myers qualified for the Class 5A regional
semifinals a year ago before falling in five games
to St. Thomas Aquinas High School on the road.
They return more experience than Venice and
have also benefited from a pair of transfers that
Wheatley said should help them offensively.
Also playing in the Preseason Classic are
Berkeley Preparatory School and Bishop Verot
High School. They face off Tuesday at 5 p.m. in
the Teepee. The classic continues Thursday when
Bishop Verot takes on Fort Myers at 5 p.m. and
Berkeley Prep plays Venice at 7 p.m.
Berkeley Prep went to the Class 3A state semi-
finals in 2007, losing to eventual-state champion
Lake Highland Preparatory School in four games.
Wheatley said Berkeley prep stands a good
chance at winning it all in Class 3A this season.
"Both games both nights will be really good,"
Wheatley said. "We've got some good volleyball
teams and (there will be) some good competition."
Get there early
The Venice volleyball booster club is hosting a
pre-Preseason Classic barbecue outside the
Teepee beginning at 4 p.m. For $7 join them for a
sandwich from Gold Rush BBQ, one side, a drink
and dessert. All proceeds benefit the Venice High
School volleyball program.

They were married in

lived in the D.C. area
(Springfield, Va.) for 15
years, where he had num-
erous jobs with federal
contractors, most notably
working for Ross Perot at
EDS. Bob and his wife
moved to Lake Dunmore,
Vt., in 1989 to a property
they acquired in 1985 (the
site of the old Lake
Dunmore Hotel, which
became the North 40).
Bob often commented
how much he loved this
place: "Just like paradise,"
he'd say, and he was so
happy here.
In 1996, Bob and his

wife vacationed in Venice
and before they returned
to Vermont they bought a
condo. From then on they
spent six months in
Vermont and six months
in Florida the best of

Bob was known for his
sense of humor, active wit,
storehouse of jokes and

Gideons deliver Bibles, spread the word


BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER

Anyone who has been
in a hotel room knows
what lies inside the top
drawer of the nightstand: a
Bible, specifically a Gideon
Bible, placed there by one
of an international group
of missionaries operating
in 187 countries.
Last year, the Gideons
gave away 73 million
Bibles worldwide. The goal
this year is 78 million.
The Lemon Bay Gid-
eons distribute Bibles in
Englewood, North Port,
Venice, Laurel and Noko-
mis, quietly making sure
guests find well-main-
tained scriptures in hotel
and motel rooms.
People sometimes use
the Bibles as coasters, or
underline scriptures, or
tear the pages out. Child-
ren use them as coloring
books, or take them when
they leave. And the Gid-
eons cheerfully replace
them, recycling the old
ones by giving them to
local prisons.
Before heading to pris-
ons, recycled Bibles are
modified and their hard,
cardboard covers replaced
with soft ones.
"There's a danger pris-
oners will remove the
cardboard covers and
make shanks or weapons
with them," Allen Pfundt-
ner said.
No one ever went to jail
for stealing a Gideon Bible
from a hotel room.
"We love it when they
take it and we replace it
when they do," Tom
Moseley said as he lugged
a 50-pound box of Bibles
up the stairs at Inn &
Suites, formerly Days Inn,
in Englewood recently.
Moseley is president of
the Lemon Bay Gideons,
who meet each Saturday
for breakfast and prayer.
A nondenominational
Christian mens organiza-
tion, the Gideons are busi-
ness people and profes-


sionals who are active in
their churches and recom-
mended by their pastors
for the mission. As the
organization evolved over
100 years, a women's auxil-
iary sprang up to hand out
Bibles in nursing homes,
doctors' offices and shel-
ters.
Pat Macy, an auxiliary
member, describes the
organization as noncon-
frontational and noninva-
sive.
"No 'praise the Lord
stuff,' "Macy said. "We just
open the book and say
'Here it is.' "
June Hope, vice presi-
dent of the Lemon Bay
Ladies Auxiliary, agrees.
"We're very quiet. We
don't advertise," Hope
said. "When you see the
Bible, you know that we've
been there."
To keep things straight,
the Gideons color-code
the Bibles, which cost $125
for 25 large ones, or $135
for 100 small ones.
Light blue is for women,
khaki and camouflage for
the military, white for
nurses and black for
hotels.
Printed in 84 languages,
the Bibles are paid for by
donations from churches
and individuals and the
Gideons themselves.
Locally, about 79 evan-
gelical churches in the
area donate to the Gid-
eons, according to Chuck
Smith, state secretary of
Florida Gideons and past
president of Lemon Bay
group.
"If you give money, 100
percent goes to printing
Bibles," Macy said. "That's
one of the reasons I
thought it was a good
organization to be in-
volved with."
Pfundtner, who heads
the science department at
Venice High School, has
distributed Bibles in hurri-
cane-ravaged Biloxi and
Port Charlotte.
"It's such a rewarding
group to belong to,"


Pfundtner said. "The cam-
araderie is very close."
Brett Stone and his
daughter, Rachel Stone,
11, joined the Gideons in
prayer Saturday prior to
Bible distribution at Beach
Croft Motel on Englewood
Beach.
"I think it's fantastic,"
said Stone, who owns the
motel. "It makes it more
comfortable for the guests
that there is a Bible there
for them if they didn't pack
one."
As manager of the 84-
room Inn & Suites on
South McCall Road,


Mukesh "Mike" Dhimar
has seen his share of
down-on-their-luck peo-
ple pass through. Some
guests are homeless.
"They might read the
Bible and change their
minds," Dhimar said.
Sometimes, families
with children come to stay.
"The kids read a couple
of pages and it makes a
difference," he said. "If you
read it, you're going to get
something. There's noth-
ing to lose."

SUDOKU CHALLENGE 8B


Creative writers share



ideas at FWA meetings


BY JOHN MCCAFFERTY
GUEST WRITER

Writing is a solitary task, and
some successful authors feel no
need to join a writers group.
Others do because writing is
more challenging to them than
it is for other people.
Florida's famous author
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings said
that creative writing sometimes
is like "digging a deep well with
a teaspoon."
George Orwell called writing
a book "... a horrible, exhausting
struggle, like a long bout of
some painful illness..."
Even finishing a book brings
challenges. Who will publish it?
Do I need an agent? Should I
self-publish? Will book stores
stock it? Will anyone buy it? Can
I sell it on the Internet? Do I
need a Web site and, if so, how
do I start one?
Questions like these are why
Susan Haley, a widow who lives
in Nokomis, felt a need to net-
work with other writers in early
2006 when her second book, a
novel, "Rainy Day People" was
published. She contacted Dan
Griffith, president of the Florida
Writers Association, a statewide
organization with about 700
members.
"There was no active FWA
chapter in Sarasota County and
Dan challenged me to start
one," Haley said. "I was scared
to death but gave it a whirl."
That whirl resulted in the
Sarasota chapter which now has
more than 30 members. They
meet on the fourth Wednesday
of the month at 6 p.m. at the
Gulf Gate Library. Of all ages
and experience, they craft nov-
els, poems, essays, memoirs,
nonfiction and even stories for
children.
Rich McKee of Venice was
one of Haley's earliest recruits.
Author of "The Clan of the
Flapdragon," a collection of
satirical columns he wrote for
the literary magazine, "Oasis,"
McKee has published more
than 70 pieces of fiction, nonfic-
tion and poetry. He teaches
composition and literature at
Manatee Community College,
and served as Writing
Coordinator at the Ringling
Community College of Art and


Design from 1992-97.
"Writing is thinking," McKee
said, "and groups like FWA can
keep you thinking, and more
importantly, writing. They're no
petty rivalries or posturing, just
a bunch of diverse people inter-
ested in different kinds of writ-
ing."
Many have been published.

Observations about a few
members
Michael Durr feels so strong-
ly about critical thinking that he
has written a new book, entitled
"My Brain, My Future." He says
good thinking is not a birthright
but a learnable skill and that it
"comes from putting your skills
together and letting the awe-
some power of your brain cre-
ate your future."
Larry Lowe, who works for
the Sarasota County Fire
Department, is writing a book
about his experiences as a
California prison guard for 10
years.
One of the newest members,
Peggy Dickenson, has started
work on a book about her expe-
riences with the Peace Corps in
Bolivia.
Venice resident John G.
Clarke is a retired journalist and
magazine editor. He publishes
personalized children's picture
books on demand.
"Most of the demand comes
from my three granddaughters,"
he said.
Another Venice resident,
Theresa "Lindy" Lindermann,
writes children's books, poems
and adult novels. Her most
recent children's book, 'A Cat's
Tale One Cat's Search for The
Meaning of Life," was illustrated
by local artist Jody Wheeler.
Lindermann is working on a
sequel, 'A Dog's Tale." She
donates all of her proceeds to
The Humane Society of
Sarasota, to St. Francis Animal
Shelter and others.
The chapter's elder states-
man, at 96, and one of its most
prolific writers, is Ed Lyman of
Osprey. Lyman's zest for life is
palpable in his short stories.
Many are sprinkled with humor
and all are the creation of a
sharp and imaginative mind. A
retired lawyer, Lyman began


talented, friendly
and very help-
ful," said
Lyman, who
also is a

volunteer
at Venice
Regional
Medical
Center.
Amuchl
younger

member
is
Venice's
Linda
White,
an
actress-
poet
who
special-
izes in
perfor-
mance
poetry and
whose motto
is "This ain't your momma's
poetry." You may have seen her
perform at the Venice Theatre,
the Venice Public Library and
other local venues. She's also a
member of Voices of Venice, a
group of poets who meet every
Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Sand
Dollar Bookstore.
White said performance
poetry is "more theatrical than
regular poetry .... When per-
formed, poetry can take an
audience


on a jour-
ney. The
reciter
becomes
the poem."
Debra
Gingerich,
who works
in commu-
nications

relations in


sions between individual identi-
ty and community loyalty. Her
poems and essays have
appeared in "The Mochila
Review," "MARGIE: The

"Whiskey Island Magazine,"
and "The Writer's Chronicle."

In 2006,
Tucker's first
novel, "Sha-

Tucker is now working on a


Civil War novel.
Russ Heitz has been writing
fiction and nonfiction for many
years and feels "as comfortable
in one as I do in the other."
After moving to Florida from
the Lancaster County area of
Pennsylvania, Heitz published
dozens of suspense stories and
worked as a Sarasota County
publications specialist.
Several years ago, Heitz
wrote a novel, "Crosshairs," and
sent a synopsis and a query let-
ter to a couple dozen agents
and publishers.
"The general response was
that it was a pretty good story
but not something they could
make any money on," he
recalled. "So, I stuck the manu-
script in a file drawer and forgot

his query letter. They ask-
ed if he had sold "Cross-
hairs" yet.
"Needless to say, I was
flabbergasted that they
were interested after all
that time," Heitz said.
Not only did they pub-
lish "Crosshairs," a tighly-
coiled suspense novel,
Infinite Writer Magazine
later named it "Book of the
Year" for 2007. One review-
er, a law enforcement offi-
cer for 25 years and a grad-
uate of the FBI Academy,
said, the book "packs a
powerful punch from the
first page to the last ... and
has more curves than the
Pennsylvania landscape in
which the novel takes
place."
Despite this initial suc-
cess, sales of "Crosshairs"
have tailed off and Heitz
thinks he knows why.
"Mystery/suspense, like
so many other genres, is
overflowing with writers,
especially here in Florida,
so the competition is
fierce," he said.
He's busy working on a
nonfiction book about
Florida wildlife, with em-
phasis on endangered or
threatened animals. He
recently signed well-
known Venice illustrator,
Jane Crick, to do drawings
of the animals featured in
the book.
Some FWA members
have Web sites or blogs to
promote their work. Mad-
eline Mora-Summonte's
work has appeared in
"Highlights for Children,"
"Storyhouse," and "Every
Day Fiction." She has pub-
lished poetry, essays and
book reviews but her first
love is fiction.
On the Sarasota chap-
ter's blog, Madeline en-
courages other FWA mem-
bers to help each other. "...
as a member of the FWA,
you are not alone," she
said. "Reach out to a fellow
Floridian writer ... We're
all in this together."
Susan Haley's first book,
"Fibers in the Web," was
published in 2002. She's
currently working on a
second novel, "The House
is Burning." The audio ver-
sion of her novel, "Rainy
Day People," recently was
a runner-up/finalist in the
2008 Indie Excellence Na-
tional Book Awards.
Haley urges members
to live up to FWA's motto of
"Writers Helping Writers."
"Any group or organiza-
tion is only as strong and
successful as its mem-
bers," she said. "The possi-
bilities are great, but it
takes participation and
enthusiasm from all."
Haley's main job is "to
keep the group together,
make sure we have a meet-
ing venue, be available to
answer inquiries from po-

courage participation."
She submits reports to
FWAs parent organization,
writes a column for FWA's
quarterly magazine, "The
Florida Writer" and other
publications, and is re-
sponsible for the chapter's
blog.
One of her goals is
"more active participation
through events and work-
shops ... an agenda that
keeps interest and spirits
high through good guest
speakers and book events.
"The hardest part is
having meetings that in-
terest everyone," she said.
"It's difficult finding speak-
ers who address everyone's
issues. That's one down-
side to the diversity of our
group."
Haley prefers round-
table discussions to cri-
tiquing.
"Critiques take a lot of
time and I prefer to give
everyone a chance to speak
at each meeting," she said.
"Some of us help each other
with manuscripts outside
of our meetings."
Members also may find
answers to their questions
at the Seventh Annual
FWA Conference Nov. 14-
16 at the Marriott Resort in
Lake Mary near Orlando.
Agents, publishers and
mentors will be on hand to
help members learn new
skills, polish their writing,
pitch their book and dis-
cuss the best way to mar-
ket their work. Winners of
the FWAs Royal Palm Lit-
erary Awards contest will

ference.
Unlike Nora Roberts,
David McCullough and the
late Robert Frost, FWA

much for fame and fortune
but because they must.

JUNE CASAGRANDE
A WORD, PLEASE


A bumper sticker popu-
lar in the '80s proclaimed,
"Whoever has the most
toys when they die wins."
Thank God that decade is
over. I don't think I could
have endured another
year of watching friends
show off status-symbol
wristwatches on which
they were paying 18 per-
cent credit card interest.
Heck, on which they're
probably still paying 18
percent credit card inter-
est.
Yes, I'm glad those days
are gone. But they did
leave a void. Where once
we had conspicuous con-
sumption as a crystal clear
raison d'etre, now we have
none.
Since then, we've only
made one wholehearted
attempt to create a new
raison d'etre: "Whoever
dies with the biggest SUV


that most effectively ob-
structs June's view of traffic
wins." But that ideal is
crumbling faster than the
polar ice caps. So I'd like to
propose a new one: "Who-
ever has the most bits of
trivial grammar and usage
information when she dies
wins."
Now there's a race I
actually have a shot at
winning. No Beemer or
Hummer required.
Take, for example, the
first sentence of this col-
umn. In it I wrote, "the
'80s," a shorter, sassier way
of writing "the 1980s."
However, when I typed the
apostrophe, I didn't get
one.
I'm working in Micro-
soft Word, which like other
word-processing programs
likes to fancify what I type.
So instead of getting the
perfectly straight little
dagger depicted on my
computer's apostrophe
key, I got a curved one.
There's just one problem.
This so-called apostrophe
curves to the right. Its
opening points the same
way as the letter C. And
there's a name for a right-
facing apostrophe: a single
open quotation mark.
Real apostrophes face
left. Or, at the very least,
they remain neutral, with
no curve. But, as a rule, if it


faces the same way as the
letter C, it's not an apostro-
phe.
Here's another bit of
language trivia that could
wow the gang at the Pearly
Gates: You know how
sometimes "sarcastic"
people put their "clever"
commentary in quotation
marks? There's a term for
that. They're called scare
quotes.
According to the "Chi-
cago Manual of Style,"
"Quotation marks are
often used to alert readers
that a term is used in a
nonstandard, ironic, or
other special sense. Nick-
named 'scare quotes,' they
imply, 'This is not my term'
or 'This is not how the
term is usually applied.' "
In this life, you'll need
that plus $1.25 to ride the
bus. But, as the end
approaches, you can add
that to your tally of near-
useless language informa-
tion acquired during your
stint on Earth.
Just don't try to vie for
my position as world's
leading expert in the
spelling of omelet/omelet-
te. I'm pretty sure I'm the
only person who has both-
ered to look that one up in
not one, not two, but three
dictionaries. My astound-
ing discovery: The dictio-
naries all agree that both


spellings are acceptable,
but they all prefer the one-
"T" version.
And here's another tid-
bit that I can't take to the
bank but I will take to the
grave: Two of those dictio-
naries prefer to spell "am-
bience" with an "e." But
the third prefers "ambi-
ance" with an "a."
Finally, you might have
noticed that I changed the
pronoun in my proposed
slogan. The original
bumper sticker, if I re-
member correctly, used
the word "they" to refer to
"whoever." I used "she."
That's because "whoever"
is singular and therefore,
whenever possible, it
should get a singular pro-
noun such as "she" instead
of a plural such as "they."
I wrote about that issue,
called "pronoun-antece-
dent agreement," just a
few weeks ago. So you may
have already known that.
Which means I have some
competition. Which means
I really should get back to
reading my dictionaries
now.

Rebuilt wrecks a threat to car buyers


FROM NAPSA

Buying a rebuilt but
not properly repaired -
wreck of a car could wreck
your finances.
A new study by Carfax
shows that millions of cars
severely damaged in ma-
jor accidents have been
rebuilt and are up for sale.
Over the last five years, the
number of salvaged cars
on the market has in-
creased nationwide by
more than 50 percent.
This problem is more
widespread than previ-
ously thought. Forecasters
predict that more than 40
million used cars will be
purchased this year, mak-
ing the used-car market a


target-rich environment
for scam artists.
Experts estimate that
more than 5 million cars
annually are deemed sal-
vage after severe accidents.
More than half of these cars
are resold, many by sellers
who intentionally hide
their damaged past.
Some of the common
problems associated with
previously wrecked vehi-
cles may include:
Title washing. Title
documents may be altered
to remove a salvage brand
and obtain a clear title
from another state.
Air bag fraud. Scam
artists are known to re-
place deployed air bags
with phony or nonwork-


ing air bags to cut costs.
Structure/frame dam-
age. As little as 8mm can
compromise a car's struc-
tural integrity, which may
also affect many of the
car's safety features.
Odometer rollbacks.
The odometer may also be
rolled back to further in-
flate the perceived value of
the vehicle.
Car clipping. Some re-
built wrecks are actually
two different cars welded
together.
Buying a salvaged car
may not be a bad invest-
ment, but you must make
sure you're aware of any
prior damage and, more
important, see that the
proper repairs were made.


Many salvage vehicles are
rebuilt properly and will
run safely again.
However, con men can
alter title documents and
make cheap cosmetic re-
pairs to others so they look
as good as new on paper
and in person. Experts rec-
ommend getting a Carfax
Vehicle History Report
that qualifies for the Car-
fax Buyback Guarantee
and have a mechanic thor-
oughly inspect the vehicle
prior to purchase. For
more information, visit
www.carfax.com.
When buying a used car,
make sure you're aware of
any previous damage and
whether proper repairs
were made.

type of business or prod-
uct in your neighborhood,
you need to be sure you're
using a site specifically ori-
ented toward local infor-
mation.
Local search engines
are today's modern ver-
sion of yellow pages direc-
tories. Local searches use
keywords and search
phrases to deliver search
results that are relevant to
the desired geographic
region. For example, if you
are looking for house-
cleaning services in New-
port, R.I., you certainly
don't want to waste your
time scrolling through
search results of houses for
sale in Newport News, Va.
Dedicated local search
sites sift through millions
of Web pages, saving users
from unwanted results;
what you get is what you

Talking with kids



about financial issues


DR. CHRIS CORTMAN
COLUMNIST


Q. In an economic stressful
time, how can parents limit the
impact of this on their children?
A. As much as possible,
children need to be
shielded from their par-
ents' financial insecuri-
ties. Children require
security to develop into
healthy, well-adjusted
adults and lack the coping
skills to deal with financial
uncertainties. To expose
them to their parents' fi-
nancial concerns will in-
variably promote unnec-
essary anxiety in children.
Q. Should children be in-
volved in the family financial
decision-making process? If
so, what ages are appropriate?
A. Children should
NOT be involved in deci-
sion making with regards
to the family finances.
However, children can be
a part of the decision-
making process regarding
their own money (allow-
ance, birthday gifts, part-
time jobs) which teaches
them financial responsi-
bility.
Q. What words should par-
ents stay away from when talk-
ing about money with children?
Is it a good idea to keep telling
them "we don't have the
money?"
A. The rule of thumb is
to give children only the
information that they
need at a given age and
no more. It's OK to tell
children that you don't
have the money to pur-
chase extra things they
might desire to own.
Children will not be dam-
aged because they cannot
have everything they
want. They need to be


reassured that everything
will be all right. In fact,
children may benefit from
parents providing age-
appropriate tools to earn
those luxuries such as set-
ting up an allowance pro-
gram, helping them find a
job or opening a savings
account.
Q. How can parents help
their children deal with peer
pressure when they can't have
the things other kids have?
A. Parents are the single
most important source of
protection against chil-
dren succumbing to peer
pressure. Teaching a child
to be comfortable in her
own skin regardless of
what they own begins
very early in life. There
will always be people who
have more financial
resources than your chil-
dren and therefore more
privileges. Children need
to be taught from an early
age that happiness, con-
trary to what corporate
America teaches them, is
not a product of purchas-
ing power.
Q. How can grandparents
help in explaining the reality of
finances to their grandchildren?
A. Ideally, it is the par-
ents' job to teach eco-
nomic stewardship to


their children. Grand-
parents may reinforce
these messages of fiscal
responsibility in word
and, especially, deed.
Modeling a healthy rela-
tionship with money is
the very best teaching
tool.
For example, demon-
strating that you, the
grandparent, have extra
resources to enjoy as a re-
sult of years of saving,
conveys a powerful mes-
sage.
Q.What can grandparents do
to keep a close bond with grand-
children from afar when travel-
ing may be prohibitive now?
A. More than ever be-
fore we live in a world
where technology affords
us easy access to people
outside of our ZIP code.
Telephone, text, Internet,
video phones and, for the
technologically resistant
senior, telegraph, bring
extended family together
despite geographic dis-
tance.

" According
to a company that
manages prescription bene-
fits for about one in five
Americans, it seems that, for
the first time, more than half of
all insured Americans are
regularly taking prescription
medications for chronic
conditions. The drugs that are most
widely used are those prescribed to
treat high blood pressure and
cholesterol, which are problems often
linked to heart disease, obesity, and
diabetes. While some might argue that
this high user rate of prescription
medications reflects better drugs and
more aggressive treatment, others
may say that it indicates worsening
overall public health. As far as
chiropractic is concerned, we take
a drugless approach to health by
addressing underlying causes, not
merely treating symptoms. Which

Travelers can simplify U.S. re-entry process


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

After an eight- or 10-
hour flight back to the
United States, no one wants
to stand in line any longer
than possible to clear cus-
toms. This is as true for citi-
zens as it is for frequent vis-
itors who may come to this
country on business.
To expedite the process
for these people, the U.S.
Department of Homeland
Security recently launched
three programs: the
Global Entry Pilot -


Program, the Passenger
Service Program and an
expanded Model Ports
Initiative.
"Perhaps the single crit-
icism we hear most from
international travelers is
frustration with the entry
process," Homeland Secu-
rity Secretary Michael
Chertoff said in a press
release announcing the
improvements.
Frequent international
travelers should
appreciate the
new Global
Entry pro-


gram that will speed up the
process for travelers who
apply to be pre-screened,
including a background
check and interview with a
U.S. Customs official. Once
the process is completed,
their information will be
entered into a system that
can be accessed at special
kiosks in the three airports
(George Bush Interconti-
nental, John E Kennedy
International and Washing-
ton Dulles International


airports), which have been
chosen as pilot locations to
test the system. For an
application, go to www.
cbp.gov/xp/cgov/travel/
trusted traveler/global
entry/.
The more people who
use the new system, the
better for those queuing
up in the U.S. Citizen and
foreign national lines, thus
likely shortening the entry
time for everyone.
The Passenger Service


Program will employ man-
agers to identify and resolve
a wide variety of passenger
issues. Improved signage,
new brochures and a new
video, produced in English,
Spanish, French and Ger-
man, are expected to
reduce waiting times at the
20 model ports where it will
be introduced. There also
are plans to expand the
program to an additional
18 ports.
The department also


will use the Internet to
provide wait times online
for 28 ports of entry 16
international airports and
12 pedestrian entries in
Arizona, California and
Texas. Visit www.cbp.gov/
xp/cgov/travel/wait times/.
As many airports outside
the U.S. offer free Internet
access, travelers will be
able to get a rough idea of
what the wait might be
even before boarding their
plane in Tokyo or Osaka.

A new re-entry process that goes beyond the passport should

The return of


the long weekend


FROM NAPSA

Americans looking to
hit the beach with the kids,
the links with their friends
or the town with their sig-
nificant other now say a
long weekend getaway is
just the ticket.
In fact, leisure travelers
take more than twice as
many long weekend trips
as they do weeklong vaca-
tions in a year, according
to PhoCusWright, a travel
market research company.
So what's the allure of
the quick trip? It can be an
easy-to-plan break from
the every day. Plus, new
types of promotions and
travel packages let week-
end travelers make their
escape without breaking
the bank.

ers can find "get-one-

FINE WHINES


My slant on things


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

I think there are two
basic ways to look at the
world: taking everything at
face value, at least until
there's evidence some-
thing isn't what it appears
to be; or assuming nothing
is as it appears to be, re-
gardless of evidence that,
as Freud supposedly said,
sometimes a cigar is just a
cigar.
Now, I'm as capable as
anyone of persuading my-
self that a shadow is actu-
ally a gunman on a grassy
knoll. I just prefer not to
reach that conclusion be-
fore determining in the
first place whether, for ex-
ample, there's even a
grassy knoll.
That's why I'm some-
times amused, sometimes
irritated by readers who
infer nefarious motives
from something that does
or doesn't appear in the
paper.


The principle reason we
publish a story is because
we think our readers will
find it informative or en-
tertaining ideally, both.
Contrary to what some
people believe, we don't let
the city or anyone else tell
us what to cover and what
not to, and we don't slant or
spin our stories to try to get
across our editorial point of
view; that's for the opinion
pages, where anyone can
throw in their 2 cents -
including criticizing us.
There are many reasons
we don't print a story.
Chief among them is that
we don't know about it.
Our staff isn't nearly big
enough to keep an eye on
everything that goes on in
the area; that's one of the
reasons we value the tips
we get from our readers.
Of course, those tips
don't always result in stories
either. Sometimes we get
them too late to do any-
thing with them; some-
times there just isn't a story


there. Sometimes the story
doesn't come together, or it
does but we hold off run-
ning it because we need to
get a photo, or it fits into
plans we have for a later
date.
Regardless, printing a
story because we want to
"get" someone or not
printing one in order to
protect someone just isn't
how we operate.
What I've noticed is that
feeling is mostly a matter
of one's perspective. Peo-
ple are more likely to see
bias in a story about some-
one they like than some-
one they don't, or in one
they disagree with than
one that coincides with
their point of view.
I'm still waiting for the
first reader to call and tell
me that he or she thought
we did a good job on a
story but it was biased.
But I've only been here
eight years.

Troubled son gets wrong kind of help


DEAR ABBY
COLUMNIST


DEAR ABBY: My 31-
year-old son calls me only
when he's in need of some-
thing like bailing him
out of jail. He never calls
just to say hello or ask how
Iam.
My problem is my guilt
feelings. All I can think of is
that he's my son and I need
to help him. In the mean-
time I am losing sleep,
don't eat right and ignore
the rest of my family. How
can I help my son and not
ignore the rest of my fami-
ly? DISAPPOINTED
MOM IN LASVEGAS
DEAR MOM: Your son
will never learn the conse-
quences of his actions
unless you stop bailing
him out and giving him
money.
You may think you need
to "help" him, but what
you are doing ISN'T help-
ing him. It's allowing him
to continue to live irre-
sponsibly.
Talk to your spiritual
adviser, talk to your hus-
band, consult a psycholo-
gist if necessary. But
change your focus, be-
cause you're directing your
attention away from the
people who really need


you and that's the rest of
your family. And I'll bet in
return you'll get the kind of
attention you need.
DEAR ABBY: I have
been placed in an uncom-
fortable situation at my
new job.
One of my co-workers,
"Wade," has begun plan-
ning monthly potluck and
brown bag lunches where
he shares religious videos
and asks everyone to pray
with him.
I saw this time as an
opportunity to get to know
my new co-workers, but I
do not share his religious
beliefs, and I'm offended
by the message.
I don't want to seem
rude to my fellow employ-
ees by declining invita-
tions each month, but I
don't want to have religion
forced on me at social
gatherings.
What would be an
appropriate thing to do in
this situation? (By the way,
I work at a religiously


diverse state university.) -
CONFLICTED CO-WORK-
ER
DEAR CONFLICTED:
You mistook your co-
worker's religious out-
reach project for a social
gathering. Graciously and
consistently decline the
invitations.
If you are pressed, say
that you prefer to do other
things on your lunch
break.
You may find others feel
similarly once you draw
the line.
PS. If you are made to
feel uncomfortable about
your choice, report it to
the university's human
relations department.

Traveling sales crews: What you should know


FROM NAPSA

The next time an unex-
pected knock on your door
turns up a young salesper-
son with a sympathy-wor-
thy sales pitch, you might
want to think twice about
supporting what may be a
traveling sales crew, says
the National Consumers
League. Alarming accounts
of scams and dangers sur-
rounding some door-to-
door sales have prompted
the nation's oldest con-
sumer advocacy organiza-
tion to warn consumers
about the risks of patroniz-
ing traveling sales crews.
Traveling sales crews
quickly sweep in and out
of neighborhoods. Often
falsely claiming to support
programs to help kids or
raise money for charity,
these companies recruit
children, teenagers and
young adults to sell
products such as maga-
zine subscriptions, clean-
ing supplies and candy.
For many youths and
young adults sucked into
traveling sales crews,
promises of high pay and
nationwide travel turn
into long hours of work
with abuse and little or no
pay. The salespeople are
often required to turn their
earnings over to the crew
leaders, who dole out $5 to
$10 a day for food.
Some sellers are forced
to survive by scamming or


stealing from their cus-
tomers or worse. Crew
members have been con-
victed of serious crimes
against their customers,
such as rape and murder.
More often than violence,
however, consumers often
find overpriced products,

dential sales, ask the seller enough, and this can buy


you some time to check

NCL recommends that
if you suspect a salesper-
son works in a traveling
sales crew, don't let him
into your house and don't
buy his product. Call your
local police. Give the


police officer the name of
the company and what is
being sold.
NCL offers tips to help
consumers distinguish
between a legitimate

CINDY GNEGY
COLUMNIST


Venice MainStreet took a
youthful spin recently on its
free Friday night concerts
held at Centennial Park.
The back-to-school con-
cert rotated bands every
hour from 1-10 p.m. with
the added attraction of
skateboard ramps set up in
the parking lot. The YMCA
and Drew Danielo, with
Ollie's Wake-Skate-Skim in
Nokomis, organized the
skate course and the skate
board competition.
The event was spon-
sored by Venice Honda and
Nifty Nic Nacs on the


Island, with additional
donations from businesses
and individuals. The bands,
also, performed pro bono.
Debbie and Roger
Conner took their two
grandsons, Tristan, 8, and
Gavin, 6, to skate.
"I didn't realize there
were so many children in
Venice," Debbie said.
"Kids have been good,
bands have been good,"
said K.C.Quaretti-Lee, pro-
gram manager of Venice
MainStreet.
"I'm glad they're doing
things for the kids," said
Dottie Presciti. She and
husband, Frank took their
dog Frostie with them to
watch the skaters.
"It's fun to see the
young people with some-
thing to do downtown,"
said Louisa Kekopoulos.


The participants ex-
pressed much of the same
sentiments.
"Great idea," said 13-
year-old Roland Risse.
"Keeps kids off the streets
and gives us someplace to
go."
Skylar Howell has been
skating for five years and
skates at many parks from
Tampa to North Port.
"This was really fun," he
said. "It was a good suc-
cess, and I liked it a lot."
Courtney Kern, 12, has
been skating for three
years and skates at the
Venice YMCA and around
her neighborhood and her
practice is paying off.
"I can pop shove it," she
said.
"I like to watch people
skate," said 11-year-old
Sydney Lakins. Sydney's


sister Danielle, 7, said she
liked skate boarding, too.
Sydney's friend Kaetlin
Riley liked the music.
Venice MainStreet hopes
to attract additional visi-
tors to the downtown area
with diverse events. Ryan
Crisman, manager of
Kilwin's, said they were
busier than usual for this
time of year and that there
were more people in town
because of the event.
"I think there would be
a lot of support for more
events for the youth
downtown," said Manuel
Heredia. "There are many
small towns all over the
country that have skate-
board parks in their down-
town areas." As a resident
of the island with two
young children, down-
town youth-oriented pro-
grams would be a signifi-
cant benefit.
Venice MainStreet will
be planning more all-
inclusive events which
should excite those youth-
ful hearts.

granddaughter, Kate, to

daughter performed in a play
at the Venice Theatre.

Courtney won first place in the beginners
division of the skate competition.

of Triumph and Tragedy, a clothing company that sup-
ports a positive lifestyle for youth.


Debbie and Roger Conner brought grandsons Tristan,
left, and Gavin to Centennial Park to listen to the bands
and watch the skateboarders.

pipeline to provide alterna-
tive water supply options
and to increase the reliabil-
ity of water supply during
times of need or emergen-
cies for residents serviced
by the Peace River Mana-
sota Water Supply Authori-
ty located in Charlotte
County, Florida.
PROPOSED WORK: The
project proposes to tem-
porarily impact 21.37
acres of waters of the Unit-
ed States which consists
of 5.90 acres of man-made
upland-cut roadside
swales/ditches, crossings
of two unnamed creeks
totaling 0.14 acre and
approximately 15.33 acres
of surface waters within
the Peace River utilizing an
open-cut trench. All
impacts will be temporary
to other surface waters
and will be restored to pre-
construction condition
upon completion of the
project.
The Peace River crossing
alignment was designed to
avoid impacts to mangrove
islands, the proposed
Peace River crossing
(6,400 linear feet) is pro-
posed via marine trench-
ing. Marine trenching is
normally performed by uti-
lizing a barge. Additional
barges or vessels may be
used for pipe fabrication,
storage and other func
tions. In addition, the appli-
cant proposes no impacts
to the bottomlands of Myr-
tle Slough, as subaqueous
directional boring will be
used to complete that por-
tion of the pipeline.
Avoidance and Minimiza-
tion Information: The appli-
cant has provided the fol-
lowing information in sup-
port of efforts to avoid
and/or minimize impacts
to the aquatic environ-
ment:
The total project area con
sists of +72.75 acres of
which 16.09 acres of wet-
land and 6.03 acres of sur-
face waters would be clas-
sified as U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers jurisdictional.
In order to avoid and mini
mize wetland and aquatic
resource impacts, the salt
marsh and mangrove
islands located within the


Peace River were avoided,
impacts to surface waters
include upland cut road-
side swales located within
existing road rights-of-way,
and directional drilling is
proposed under Myrtle
Slough to avoid impacts to
high quality forested wet-
lands. The impacts to sur-
face waters including the
Peace River and the road-
side swales are temporary

the request for extension
must do so within the time
limits for filing a petition
described above and serve
all parties with the request.
The request must state
why an extension is need-

grant an extension only
when good cause is
shown.
If a petition or request for
extension of time is filed,
further order of the Depart-
ment becomes necessary

Accordingly, the Depart-
ment's final action may be
different from the position
taken by it in this notice.

Statutes and to participate
as a party to the proceed-
ing. If a legally sufficient
petition for hearing is not
timely received, this notice
constitutes final agency
action. When this order
becomes final, any party to
the order has the right to
seek judicial review under.

Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399, and
with the appropriate dis-

thirty (30) days after this
final order is filed with the

notice filed with the district
court must be accompa-

the Florida Statutes. Any
subsequent intervention
will only be at the approval
of the presiding officer
upon motion filed under
Rule 28-106.205, Florida
Administrative Code.
A person whose substan-
tial interests are affected
by the Department's pro-
posed agency action may
choose to pursue media-
tion as an alternative reme-
dy under Section 120.573
before the deadline for fil-
ing a petition. Choosing
mediation will not adverse-
ly affect the right to a hear-
ing if mediation does not
result in a settlement. The
procedures for pursuing
mediation are set forth
below.
A person may pursue medi-
ation by reaching a media-
tion agreement with all par-
ties to the proceeding
(which include the appli-
cant, the Department, and
any person who has filed a
timely and sufficient peti-
tion for a hearing) and by
showing how the substan-
tial interests of each medi-
ating party are affected by
the Department's action or
proposed action. The
agreement must be filed in
(received by) the Office of
General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Com-
monwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000 by the
same deadline as set forth
above for the filing of a
petition.
The agreement to mediate
must include the following:
(a) The names, address-
es, and telephone num-
bers of any persons who
may attend the media-
tion;
(b) The name, address,
and telephone number of
the mediator selected by
the parties, or a provi-
sion for selecting a medi-
ator within a specified
time;
(c) The agreed allocation
of the costs and fees
associated with the medi-


ation;
(d) The agreement of the
parties on the confiden-
tiality of discussions and
documents introduced
during mediation;
(e) The date, time, and
place of the first media-
tion session, or a dead-
line for holding the first
session, if no mediator
has yet been chosen;
(f) The name of each
party's representative
who shall have the


28 NOTICE OF PERMIT

authority to settle or rec-
ommend settlement; and
(g) Either an explanation
of how the substantial
interests of each mediat-
ing party will be affected
by the action or pro-
posed action addressed
in this notice of intent or
a statement clearly iden-
tifying the petition for
hearing that each party
has already filed, and
incorporating it by refer-
ence.
(h) The signatures of all
parties or their autho-
rized representatives.
As provided in Section
120.573 of the Florida
Statutes, the timely agree-
ment of all parties to medi-
ate will toll the time limita-
tions imposed by Sections
120.569 and 120.57 for
requesting and holding an
administrative hearing.
Unless otherwise agreed
by the parties, the media-
tion must be concluded
within sixty (60) days of the
execution of the agree-
ment. If mediation results
in settlement of the admin-
istrative dispute, the
Department must enter a
final order incorporating
the agreement of the par-
ties. Persons whose sub-
stantial interest will be
affected by such a modi-
fied final decision of the
Department have a right to
petition for a hearing only
in accordance with the
requirements for such set
forth above and must,
therefore, file their peti-
tions within twenty-one (21)
days of receipt of this
notice. If mediation termi-
nates without settlement of
the dispute, the Depart-
ment shall notify all parties
in writing that the adminis-
trative hearing processes
under Sections 120.569
and 120.57 remain avail-
able for disposition of the
dispute, and the notice will
specify the deadlines that
then will apply for challeng-
ing the agency action and
electing remedies under
those two statutes.

- Six Steps to Success


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


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


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


4e Arrange for plenty of tables and hanging
items so you can display everything prominently.
When it's time, set up your sale so people can move
around easily.


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


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

Forget Wheaties, Phelps flips for Frosted Flakes


By the time this is pub-
lished you will have
heard that Michael
Phelps, the swimming star
who brought home eight
gold medals at the Beijing
Olympics, is passing on his
picture being on a Wheaties
box and is instead going
with Frosted Flakes.
Some people are upset and
think that he should be say-
ing, "Don't forget to eat your
Wheaties." Instead, they
believe he will be endorsing
a sugary breakfast cereal
which will encourage
youngsters to indulge as
well, adding to the growing
epidemic of childhood obe-
sity.


Jennifer
Wadsworth
Feeling Fit Editor
I have a
problem with
that line of
thinking.
Phelps is giving parents a
wonderful opportunity to
have a conversation with
their children about nutri-
tion and exercise.
Eating a bowl of cereal
isn't going to make you fat.
Consuming the entire box
while watching TV all day,
every day probably will. So
tell your kids that you can
eat the foods you want, in
moderation.

If you're worried about the
amount of sugar per serving,
mix it another cereal like
Corn Flakes (which Phelps
will also pose for) or Rice
Checks. Give them a few
choices and let them choose
their own combinations.
If you want to see the
numbers for yourself, visit
www.calorie-count.com
with your family and com-
pare nutrition information.
According to that Web site,
Frosted Flakes is high in
sugar, but it also has a lot of
vitamins and receives a
"Nutrition Grade" of a B-.
You can also tell your kids
that Michael Phelps is an
extremely active person and


he doesn't sit in front of a
computer all day. Make a
deal with your kids, tell
them for every minute of
inactivity (time spent play-
ing video games, in front of
the computer, etc.) they will
be required to have the
same amount of physical
activity.
I know, not all kids like to
exercise. So, go for a walk
together after dinner. Buy a
workout dvd geared toward
their age and do it with
them.
Remember, they are a
reflection of you. If you eat
well and have a healthy
lifestyle it is more likely that
they will, too.

A tailored approach:

Community Eye Optical offers lenses to meet

unique vision, driving and workplace needs


At Community Eye Optical (CEO), we never take a "one size
fits all approach" when helping you select your lenses. "We
ask about the patient's lifestyle, recreation activities and work-
place," explains John Bailey, Director of Optical Services at CEO.
"When we look at the whole picture, we're able to better tailor
the lenses to the patient and help him or her achieve the best
possible vision."

Below Bailey highlights a few of the specialty lenses
CEO offers to patients:






* Drivewear -- These specialized, polarized sunglass lenses
are ideal for patients who spend a lot of time on the road.
Drivewear lenses transition to three different colors as they
adjust to the varying light intensity both outside and behind
the windshield of a car. They respond to both visible and UV
light.
"They are different from Transitions lenses, which are not
polarized. Plus, Drivewear lenses are specifically designed
for driving conditions. They are sunglasses, so they don't ever
become clear," Bailey explains.



For more information about
these and other lenses, visit
www. CommunityEyeCenter.com,
click on the
"Optical" link and
then click on "Lenses."

See why Community Eye Optical
has been Voted BEST in its class
for 10 years now!


. L4a


* Shamir OfficeTM -- These progressive lenses are specifically
designed for professionals, such as doctors, musicians, artists,
accountants, computer workers and others who require con-
centrated vision for up to 13 feet.
"With most progressive lenses, you have to tilt your head
in order to read fine print clearly. Shamir OfficeTM ensures a
wide, clear, edge-to-edge view while keeping your head in a
normal, straight ahead position," he explains. "This is a sig-
nificant advantage for those who spend a lot of time reading
from a screen."

* Varilux IpseoTM This personalized lens is individually
tailored to the patient's unique head and eye movements,
which provides optimal visual performance and allows for a
smoother transition to progressive wear lenses.
"An instrument is used
to measure the pattern
of the patient's head
and eye movements.
Then the lenses are de-
signed to match that
pattern using a digital manufacturing process that is 6 times
more accurate than traditional surfacing methods. This pro-
duces the prescription on the lenses resulting in a more pre-
cise, pristine view" says Bailey. "Wave Technology "which is

Learning to move from fusion to differentiation


Dear Dr. Joan,
I have just returned from
visiting a friend. She has been
married for about a year and a
half, and is so different from
when I knew her in school.
While some might call her
"devoted" to her husband, I
am concerned about her. She
has given up her hobbies, her
friends and her community
organizations, and has turned
all her attention to her hus-
band. Somehow that doesn't
seem right.

While a few generations
back, this type of "devotion"
might be highly approved, it
does seem unusual today.
What we've learned from deal-
ing with families is that those
whose only significant rela-
tionship is with the spouse are
often overly sensitive to the
spouse's every reaction.
Anything the spouse does that
is different from expectations
may be interpreted as threat-
ening to the relationship.
Stormy conflict or what some
psychologists call "fusion" is
likely to follow.

Stormy conflict is relatively
easy to understand. Fusion,
however, when applied to
family systems has a rather
complex meaning. Fusion can
be defined as a blurring of the
psychological boundaries
between self and others.
During early developmental
stages, if emotions flood the
intellect, they can impair
rational functioning. The
greater the degree of overlap
between emotions and the
intellect, in ourselves, the
more we are "fused" to the
emotional reactions of other
people.
Other schools of psychologi-
cal thought call fusion by
another name, "enmesh-
ment." Enmeshment seems to
carry with it a picture of being
caught in a web. And this is
exactly what has happened.
An adult who is fused or
enmeshed has remained in


.' j the same
position they
occupied in
their family
of origin.
Both the
clinging,
DR. JOAN dependent,
ASHKIN, EdD, person and
LCSW, RN the aloof, iso-
lated one are
fused or
enmeshed.
They just show it in different
ways.
You were compassionate
and "right on" to be con-
cerned about your friend.
Apparently, at school, she
was able to state her beliefs
and convictions with confi-
dence. Yet, once married, she
may have carried out her
belief in "two become one" by


giving up the uniqueness of
herself.
A person in your friend's
position needs approval and
acceptance above all else.
With one eye on keeping her
relationship on an even keel,
she may have difficulty saying
"no," or making other truthful
statements.
While the marriage may
look good on the outside,
spontaneity is lost and resent-


ment builds up which eventu-
ally leads to disappointment
and blaming.
Differentiation, which is the
opposite of fusion, can be
learned. Differentiation helps
all relationships in which the
person is involved.
When we are differentiated,
we can discuss issues calmly
and rationally with all family
members and friends. A fami-
ly therapist can help.

Blood drive looks to
community for help
The Florida's Blood Center
will be collecting blood from 7
a.m. to 1 p.m. on September 7
at Burnt Store Presbyterian
Church (BSPC) in Punta Gorda.
Local hospitals are experienc-
ing high blood usage at the
same time that blood supplies
locally, and nationally, are
extremely low. If supplies are
not replenished it can lead to
postponement of critical med-
ical treatments so the Blood
Center is pleading for all eligi-
ble donors, and new donors, to
donate as soon as possible.
George Scheer, blood dona-
tion manager for the church,
reminds everyone that "all
blood types are needed and we
are appealing to any one who
is eligible to please participate
for our September blood drive
to help reach our goal of pro-
viding 100 units of blood."
Donors can be as young as 16
and there is no upper age limit.
All donors need to bring photo
identification.

There's a reason why doctors love this area


By DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER
Englewood is a great place
to stay healthy or get sick,
depending on which way you
look at it.
There are 302 physicians
per 10,000 people in
Englewood, almost double
the U.S. average, according to
bestplaces.net, a Web-site
that tracks that kind of data.
The national average is 170
physicians per 10,000 people.
By comparison, Port
Charlotte has 214 physicians
per 10,000, and Punta Gorda
has 215.
Englewood, Sarasota and
Venice are on a par, with
around 300.
Compared to Arcadia,
which has 85 doctors per
10,000 people (according to
the Web site) Englewood is a
relative oasis.
A product of the Sperling
Company, the Web site pub-
lishes data on demographics,
preferences, and selections of
"best places" to live, work, or
retire. These numbers are
based on 2007 figures.
"I get calls from people all
over the country looking for
positions in Florida," says Jay
Wolfson, a doctor, attorney
and professor of public health
and medicine at the
University of South Florida.
Wolfson is also associate vice
president of health law, policy
and safety at USE
Areas like Englewood, in
particular, are attractive to
physicians, Wolfson said,
because Medicare reimburse-
ment rates are slightly higher
here.
"To attract specialists, the
commercial insurance plans
have to give higher reim-
bursements, sometimes 125
percent, to induce them," he
said.
What Arcadia lacks in doc-
tors, (it has 85 per 10,000 peo-

ple, according to the Web site)
it more than compensates for
in air quality, scoring a 76 on
a scale of one to 100. This
compares unfavorably with
Englewood and Venice, which


both score a 35 for air quality.
Air quality in Port
Charlotte and Punta Gorda
falls midway between
Arcadia's high and
Englewood's low, at 56.


Lifestyle and income level
of the community are strong
motivators for doctors to
come to the area.
"They want a place where
the weather is pleasant, cost


of living is low, and there is a
population that can support
them in terms of income,"
Wolfson said.

Attractive also is not hav-
ing to deal with what Wolfson
describes as "a more urban-
oriented panoply of urban ill-
da nesses," and associated
insurance-related issues that
can arise.
"I've seen there are some
younger physicians who
choose to go down there and
carve out a specialty niche
where they can count on cash
business and don't have to
count on
Medicaid," he These
said. "If you
can carve out days,
service con-
tracts with a doctors
third party graduate
that pays
well, you can $150,000
make a very
nice living." tO
Rural areas
like Arcadia, $300,000
have a differ- in debt
ent problem.
Attracting from
q doctors to
areas where student
the popula- loans.
tion is dis-
persed has
long been a challenge in pub-
lic health, Wolfson said. In the
1960s, the National Health
Service Corp. gave young
physicians tuition in exchange
for service. But the days of
indentured servitude are over,
Wolfson said.
These days, doctors gradu-
ate $150,000 to $300,000 in
debt from student loans.
Smaller rural areas with fewer
patients sometimes have a
tough time offering competi-
tive salaries.
"Arcadia is definitely one of
those," Wolfson said. "You're
never going to pay that off on
$70,000 per year. The num-
bers of patients are too low
and Medicaid reimburse-
ments are too low. It's got to
be the right kind of person
who wants to work there."

Like the faithful mail carri-
er, we know how important it
is to be there. On Tuesday,
Tropical Storm Fay tried to
keep us home but we opened
our office to be there for our
patients. This was not the first
time that bad weather tried to
get us down. We all remember
August 13, 2004 when
Hurricane Charley roared


through. Every one on our
staff pitched in to make sure
all of our charts were recov-
ered from a badly damaged
building. Within days, we
were in temporary office
space seeing patients by
lantern light without air con-
ditioning. Through thick and
thin, you can count on us to
be there when you need us.
