GOP Senate nod


BY NEIL HUGHES
STAFF WRITER

The race for the Republican
nomination in Florida Senate
District 23 came down to a battle
of Charlotte versus Sarasota
counties. Sarasota- and former
state Rep. Nancy Detert won
Tuesday night.
With all of the precincts
reporting, Detert took an esti-
mated 51 percent of the vote, or
18,205 ballots, edging out cur-
rent state Rep. Michael Grant,
who got 17,818 votes, for a shot
at the Florida Senate. About
10,000 Sarasota County absen-
tee ballots will be counted Wed-
nesday.


"It was a nail-biter," Detert
said Tuesday night. "It feels
good. It was a good win."
Grant, a Charlotte County
representative, easily carried his
home county by nearly a two-to-
one margin. But Detert, 63, won
by a similar spread in her old ter-
ritory, Sarasota County.
And in a simple numbers
game, Sarasota County with a
much larger population took
Detert to victory.
Detert noted that the turnout
in Charlotte County (north of 30
percent) trounced the number
of votes cast in Sarasota County
(17 percent), making the race

Large lead for Knight

in GOP sheriff race

Tom Knight
of Venice was

Larry Dunklee
and David Gus-

GOP primary
race Tuesday for
Sarasota Coun-

press time.
Knight had 61
percent of the vote with 14,029
votes counted. There are 10,000
absentee ballots still untabulat-
ed.
"I think it took 5,000 door


knocks and hard grassroots
work," he said. "We thought we
were going to win, but not by
that much. We were confident
we were going to win by a com-
fortable margin but were sur-
prised by 60 percent."
If his lead holds, Knight will
face Democrat Curt Lavarello in
the Nov. 4 general election.
Knight ran on a platform that
included hiring deputies and
emphasizing marked car pa-
trols. Knight said it is time to
establish a drug task force in
North Port.

dora in the
Republican
primary race,
with 99 per-
cent of pre-
cincts report-
ing in the Sara-
sota County Furst
Property Ap-
praiser race at press time.
Furst gained 54 percent of the
vote to Todora's 45 percent.
However, 10,000 outstanding
absentee ballot votes could


make a difference in the out-
come.
Furst spent the evening with
about 50 supporters.
"I'm doing great," Furst said.
"I want to see to the final tally."
The winner will face write-in
candidate Gary Wayne Johnson
in November's general election.
"(I plan) to fulfill all the cam-
paign promises I've been mak-
ing for the last 10 months," Furst
said of his plans if he wins the
general election.
Todora, who spent Tuesday
night at his home, was elected
Sarasota's property appraiser in
1996, and was re-elected in 2000
and 2004.

GRAPHIC COURTESY OF BEEBE DESIGN STUDIO
The current site plan of the proposed Tramonto Vista Park includes a pavilion, restroom facility, stage area and a


playground.
BY JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

Venice City Council met Tues-
day to review what is now a five-
year running proposition to de-
velop the former Island Waste-
water Treatment Plant property
on South Harbor Drive into a
family-friendly park.
Initially approved for devel-
opment in 2003 using money
from a $10 million bond issue,
Tramonto Vista Park has been a
subject of controversy between
concerned taxpayers and busi-
ness advocates ever since.
Council Member John Sim-
monds expressed frustration
with the lack of progress being
made on the park's development
so far.
"My main concern is that we
just get something off the
ground. I'm prepared to go for-
ward with it," he said. "Let's just
get something done."
Asphalt bungle
After reviewing the site plan
developed by Beebe Design


Studio in conjunction with Mag-
num Builders and Hazeltine
Nurseries, council agreed to
move forward with the project
and approved the site plan's lay-
out for park facilities. Council
could not however, come to an
agreement on the types of mate-
rial to use in constructing them.
Kathleen Weeden, assistant
city engineer, said they intended
to use a type of pervious materi-
al that would allow water to seep
through. She said, however, that
this type of asphalt is 50 percent
more expensive than standard
asphalt and requires occasional
upkeep to maintain its absorp-
tion level.
Council Member Ernie Za-
vodnyik said he did not agree
with the plan's parking lot con-
struction.
"I want to make it clear that
I'm opposed to using asphalt,"
he said, citing the heat generat-
ed and visual offensiveness of
asphalt as his reasons.
Vice Mayor John Moore said
he didn't want to use asphalt in
the parking lot either.


"I agree: I'd love to see some-
thing other than asphalt in the
parking lot," he said, "but I want
the park to be a place where not
only young people can go, but
the elderly and handicapped
who use wheelchairs can also
enjoy."
The plan
Construction elements aside,
the current plan centers around
a large octagonal pavilion locat-
ed at the north side of the park.
Surrounding the perimeter of
the retention pond is a multi-use
trail with five dune crossover
platforms for beach access.
Also included: a concrete slab
for portable stages to hold out-
door concerts, several rest-
rooms, outside showers and
foot-wash stations, a swing set,
auxiliary picnic pavilions and a
large parking area.
Buoys away
There was another addition
to the plan that didn't sit so well

Council blocks airport building permit


Earlier this year city council approved funding for a
dozen new hangars run by the city. Now it's hesitating
to allow construction of four by a private enterprise.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

A legal battle is on the horizon
over whether city council has
the authority to require the own-
er of the Venice Jet Center to seek
permission to apply for a build-
ing permit.
Venice Jet Center's managing
partner Art Nadel spoke before
city council Tuesday requesting
the "green light" to process a


building permit to construct
four 8,000-square-foot corpo-
rate airplane hangars. He didn't
get it.
Council thanked Nadel for his
presentation, but refused to act
on his request until City At-
torney Bob Anderson returns
from a leave of absence.
Nadel said he always contem-
plated more aircraft hangars for
his business, and there was an
implied understanding of that


intent when he renegotiated his
30-year lease in 2006.
Currently the city rents 144 T-
hangars, and it recently approv-
ed the construction of 12 more.
The Venice Jet Center's lease
provisions call for "improve-
ments" on leased land, and the
building of two hangars to
replace old ones torn down, but
building four new hangars is not
specified.
Instead, the lease refers to a
city document incorporating
city standards already in exis-
tence for an airport "fixed-base

County begins timber thinning


FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY

Over the next several
weeks, Sarasota County
and the Florida Division of
Forestry will be removing
timber at Knight Trail Park
and county-owned land
just east of Venice Minerals
in Nokomis. The project
area is east of Interstate 75
between the Myakka River
and Cow Pen Slough.
Approximately 10 per-
cent of the timber areas


will be cleared to assist
with future site improve-
ment plans. The remain-
ing portions will be
thinned to help improve
tree growth, help restore
pine flatwood and scrub
habitat, improve wildlife
habitat, provide a safer
condition for prescribed
bums and help reduce the
potential for catastrophic
wildfires.
Residents who have
questions about the pro-
ject may call 861-5000.

County agrees to front land purchase for Red Sox


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Red Sox Nation took
another baby step toward
Sarasota Tuesday.
Following nearly a half-
hour of passionate speech-
es from local Red Sox fans
and business people, Sara-
sota County commission-
ers unanimously approved
a memorandum of under-
standing with the city of
Sarasota to provide $4.8
million for the purchase of
several parcels near Payne
Park- a potential site for a
spring training facility for
the Boston Red Sox.
According to the terms
of the memo, the county
will initially purchase the
parcels comprising a lit-
tle less than 2 acres near
the intersection of Wash-
ington Boulevard and
Laurel Street and will
then receive reimburse-
ment from the city no later
than June 30, 2009.
The chambers of the
Sarasota County Adminis-
tration Center thundered
with applause from the
crowd of supporters when
the consent was given,
although Commissioner
Nora Patterson made it
clear her vote was not an
enthusiastic one.
Patterson, whose reti-
cence in releasing funds
last January to improve Ed
Smith Stadium helped to
hasten the departure of the
Cincinnati Reds, looked
askance at the prospect of
spending more money to
bring another major league


BY ALISON POSNER
STAFF WRITER

A Nokomis man was
killed Monday night after
he was struck by a car
while walking along State
Road 776 in Englewood
East.
The pedestrian was
identified as David Boat-
right, 39, of Englewood.
Boatright was walking
east along the south side
of S.R. 776 with another
person when he was
struck.
The driver, who was
identified as Englewood
resident Mary Vasas, 82,
was driving south on S.R.
776 when she drifted to
the right out of her lane
onto the paved apron. She
struck Boatright from
behind and he was thrown
forward, striking a steel
guardrail on the shoulder
of the road.
Boatright was taken to
Englewood Community
Hospital, where he was
pronounced dead.
A second pedestrian,
Linda Earnest, 38, of Engle-
wood was also struck and
was hospitalized with
minor injuries.
Vasas also was taken to
the Englewood hospital


955 more in the next two
years. That's an increase of
1,314 hotel rooms. It's the
county's and city's respon-
sibility to pursue every
opportunity to sustain the


team to Sarasota.
"Why is the city not
buying (the land)?" Patter-
son asked County Admin-
istrator Jim Ley.
"Because we were the
ones with the contacts and
the ability to make (the
deal) happen in a quick
fashion," Ley said.
Ley's response did little
to spark Patterson's enthu-
siasm.
"The bottom line is the
total price of the (stadi-
um), minus whatever we
can come up with in
tourist tax, has to be paid
by somebody the city,
the county," Patterson
said. "We haven't really
heard any numbers yet
that the city is willing to
put on the table."
Good deal
The vote cheered Judy
Athari, director of sales for
Marriott International.
"In the next nine
months, three hotels will
open within 1 mile of our
hotels, bringing an addi-
tional 359 sleeping rooms
to the market," Athari told
the commissioners. "With
the (impending) addition
of the Waldorf Astoria and
other hotels, we expect


and treated for minor
injuries.
Boatright worked for
James Earnest Tree Service
in Englewood. He lived
with his sister and brother-
in-law in Nokomis until
seven weeks ago, when he
moved to Englewood to
live with the Earnests,
Linda Earnest said.
In an interview Tuesday,
Linda Earnest said she and
Boatright were on their
way home from a job on
Manasota Beach Road,
where Boatright was work-
ing as a tree climber. They
thought Linda's husband,
James Earnest, would be
driving by to pick them up,
so they decided to start
walking to their home on
Pendleton Avenue.
"I didn't even know a
car hit us," Linda Earnest
said. 'All I heard was a big
thud, and I was thrown at
least 20 feet back and he
was thrown 50 feet in
front.
"He was our climber, he
was our roommate, he was
my little brother. He was
like a father figure to my
husband."

hospitality industry, one of
our area's top revenue
generators."
Commissioner Joe Bar-
betta believed the deal was
a good one, whether the


land eventually became
part of a ballpark or not.
"The city wants this par-
cel to expand the park,"
said Barbetta, an avowed
proponent of bringing the


Red Sox to Sarasota. "It's
not solely for the stadium,
though hopefully that's the
way it's going to work."

Prediction System, presented a
plan that would use some of the
park's space for scientific research.
His group works in conjunction
with the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration to
develop new methods of tracking


surface currents, wave activity
and toxicity levels in coastal
waters off South Florida.
Merz spoke on behalf of his
organization in support of in-
stalling ocean monitoring equip-
ment along the grounds of Tra-
monto Vista Park. His plan includ-
ed the construction of a dozen 8-
foot to 9-foot-tall transmission
towers in the area between the
retention pond and the beach. The
towers, he said, would communi-


cate with offshore buoys and give
the Coast Guard and other weath-
er monitoring agencies valuable
information about ocean patterns.
"In the plan we tried to position
these in locations that had the
least impact on the area," he said.
"The information that we collect
will be used by the Coast Guard to
save people's lives."

Not here
Mayor Ed Martin was quick to


dispel the possibility of a research
station at Tramonto Vista.
"Part of the attraction of the
park is the natural beauty," he
said. "I think there are better loca-
tions for this project to be explor-
ed."
Merz said the area where
Tramonto Vista will be located is
ideal because of previous success
the organization has had collect-
ing data in that particular area.
"We tested a prototype south of


WEDNESDAY, AUG. 27, 2008


the pier in 2004 and got very good
data," he said. "We wanted to try
to repeat that."
Council member John Sim-
monds echoed Martin's position.
"I do not understand much
about this type of installation," he
said. "I don't support this. We have
enough grief trying to get citizens
to agree on what's already being
proposed."

operator." The standards specifi-
cally include an expectation of
constructing hangars for aircraft.
Assistant City Attorney Wayne
Hall said it was his position, and
that of City Attorney Bob Ander-
son, that the "lease doesn't spe-
cifically authorize this." Based
partly on a letter dating back to
June, penned by then-City Man-
ager Marty Black, Hall said the site
was on city property and would
need city approval.
He did give council the option
to approve Nadel's presentation as
a site plan, or authorize the city
manager to approve it, but coun-
cil hesitated.

Left hanging
Four months ago Jet Center
staff walked into city hall with a
building permit application filled
out, but building department staff
refused to accept it, saying they
were under a city council directive
not to, Nadel said.
In June a meeting took place
with numerous department
heads to make sure the permits
were in order, according to Dan
Boone, attorney for Nadel. Every-
thing was in order, he said, and
there was no staff opposition.
"Just prior to the execution of


BOIL-WATER NOTICE
The city of Venice experi-
enced a water main break
Tuesday around 3 p.m. on
Tarpon Center Drive.
Residents who live along
Tarpon Center Drive, south of
Gibbs Road, should boil water
for 72 hours, or use bottled
water, as a precaution.
City utilities workers have
fixed the broken pipe, which
required the street to be
closed for a few hours. The
cause of the break is not
known at this time.



our lease, Swiftmud (Southwest
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict) had issued a permit for
hangar construction on the very
same site on which we plan to
construct these four hangars,"
Nadel wrote in an Aug. 18 letter to
Mayor Ed Martin. "We would not
have entered into the lease with-
out this understanding."
And he wasn't buying the
notion that he was required, at this
stage after negotiating a new
lease to seek council's permis-
sion to build something it already
implicitly approved. Nadel said he


understood his business would be
required to go through the normal
building permit process and com-
ply with city codes, but not this
newintermediary step inwhichhe
would be required to get council
approval simply to process the
building permit.
"There are no references in the
lease to a requirement of city
council permission for construc-
tion," he wrote. "Requirements in
the lease ... refer to various
required city departmental ap-
provals. We know of no instance in
which vacant land at the airport
was leased by the city for specific
uses, and thereafter the tenant
had to go to city council for
express permission to construct a
building for a permitted use on
that land."

Unprecedented
Nadel's position was that coun-
cil didn't have any say about issu-
ing a building permit.
"No action needs to be taken
today simply because council does
not have a voting option on this
matter," said Attorney Jeff Boone,
who spoke on Nadel's behalf.
"There wasn't a vote required.
There is no site and development
plan required for a GU (govem-


AIRPORT BOARD STILL ALIVE
Venice City Council decided Tuesday to postpone the vote to
abolish the Airport Advisory Board.
The motion was made by Council Member John Moore, who
said the postponement was needed due to the third amended
Sunshine Law complaint filed Aug. 20 by Anthony Lorenzo
against the city and individual members of council and the airport
board.
Lorenzo's attorney, Andrea Mogensen, reportedly filed paper-
work this week requesting more than $200,000 in attorney fees
from the city. A judge has yet to rule on that request.
Council hasn't had the discussion yet over whether the city
should pay some or all of the attorney fees that are expected on
behalf of council or airport board members.
The decision to abolish the board was postponed until Sept.


ment unit zoning district). This
totally falls in an undefined area.
"(I) realize there is a changing
political climate, and if new regu-
lations need to be made to affect
that political climate" then so be it.
But "none have been enacted, and
you should treat this client in the
same fashion as other property
owners."
"Until the rules and regulations
are changed, you cannot require
the Jet Center to go through a
process that has not been (legis-
lated). The Jet Center should be
allowed to file a building permit,


and be processed the way any
such permits would be processed
in the city."
Dan Boone placed blame for
the delay squarely on the shoul-
ders of Council Member Sue
Lang, a longtime airport critic
who has successfully led a move-
ment to scale back development
at the airport.
"We are very concerned they
will deny it because Lang opposes
it so vehemently," he said. "She
wants to bring the airport down...
for it not to even survive."

Detert carried 50.5 percent
of the vote, while Grant
took 49.5 percent.
Detert said she's proud
of the fact that she and
Grant ran clean, positive
campaigns against each
other.
"We all have families
and we all want to live in
our communities later,
and I think that was a win
for both families," she said.
"I congratulate Mike Grant
on the race that he ran and
the support that his com-
munity showed him."
While Tuesday was a
major victory, Detert has
more work to do. In
November, she is set to
face off against Democrat
Morgan Bentley.
With that in mind,
Detert sought to let
Charlotte County voters -
those she didn't gain in the
primary know that she
intends to fight for them in
Tallahassee as well.

STAFF REPORT

Another election, an-
other problem with Sara-
sota County voting ma-
chines.
An otherwise swift and
smooth evening of vote
tabulation at the county
Supervisor of Elections
office got mired in a deep
computer glitch Tuesday
night.
The problem was caus-
ed by the election staff's
inability to transfer the last
votes to a computer server.
By 7:30 p.m., more than 97
percent of the votes were
tallied. The final vote
totals, however, were held
up by a strange computer
malfunction in the coun-
ty's new voting machines,
which are made by Pre-
mier Elections Systems.
As reporters and elec-
tions observers watched
the tabulations through a
glass window at the elec-
tions office, and elections
officials and company rep-
resentatives worked to fix
the problem, no final tal-
lies could be reported.
Asked at 9:30 p.m. what
the exact problem with the
computerized system was,


Sarasota Supervisor of
Elections Kathy Dent said,
"We don't know."
"It's not a tabulation
problem at all," she said.
All votes were in, Dent
said, but her office could
not transfer the data from
its absentee ballots to the
other voting totals. In-
stead, elections officials
had to add the numbers by
hand.
That was completed
shortly before 10 p.m.
Dent then handed out
what she called prelimi-
nary totals pulled from
three separate sets of sum-
mary reports, and suggest-
ed reporters and observers
add them together.
"We're doing the best
we can with (this system),"
she said. "It was certified
by the state and repeatedly
tested in mock elections."
Harried by yet another
election glitch, she said,
"My reaction? Total frus-
tration. Right now, it's a
mystery."
The Sarasota Canvas-
sing Board was due to
meet at 8:30 a.m. Wednes-
day to run the totals. That
was expected to take four
hours, Dent said.

drug activity in the area is gaining,"
Knight said while campaigning. "In addi-
tion to widespread prescription drug
abuse, marijuana dealing and use is on
the rise. In the past 18 months, the SSO
has discovered about 30 marijuana grow
houses in North Port (out of about 35
countywide). I would advocate the cre-
ation of a full-blown task force, and fur-

fight North Port's drug problem before it
worsens."
"We are close to saying that we cannot
make any further cuts and still provide
the proper level of service to keep the cit-
izens of Sarasota County safe," Knight
said during the campaign. "We have
trimmed much from the budget, 79
authorized positions in the past six
months."

Deep-six anything political from a 527


Just as surely as early voting has al-
tered the election calendar for vot-
ers and candidates, another aspect
of modern election cycles 527 groups
- will soon make an unfortunate, pre-
dictable appearance.
We were reminded of this when a fre-
quent contributor to the Sun papers
and a veteran of local and state politics,
Tom D'Andrea, called to express his
concern. In a subsequent letter, he
fleshed out those concerns.
'According to their financial reports,
candidates have had record fundraising
success that will eventually translate
into a flood of colorful political mailers.
Unfortunately, some of those mailers
won't come directly from the candidates
themselves. Some will be the creation of
so-called 527 organizations shadow
groups backed by corporations, unions
and special interests that attempt to
sway voters with 'issue' ads that casti-


gate the candidate the group opposes,"
D'Andrea wrote.
"Who are these guys? The name (527)
reflects the tax code provision that
allows them to legally exist. But unlike
political action committees, a 527 can
accept unlimited donations as long as
their ads don't openly advocate voting
for one particular candidate. However,
the law does not preclude them from
castigating the candidate they oppose,"
he continued.
We share his disgust for the self-serv-
ing world of 527 groups on both ends of
the political spectrum. At a time when
voter anger and lean economic times
are forcing governments at all levels to
make difficult choices, we can't afford to
have voters make decisions based on
loosely factual attack ads that distort
candidates' records to further the goals
of special interest groups.
D'Andrea highlighted an odious tac-


tic many of these groups use: timing.
"They arrive in your mailbox a few
days before the election and the poor
soul being maligned has no time to
respond," D'Andrea wrote.
The lack of regulation of such groups
makes them an attractive vehicle for
eluding state and federal contribution
limits. "527s are lucrative slush funds
where individuals, corporations or spe-
cial interests can make unlimited con-
tributions in targeted races," D'Andrea
wrote.
And while candidates are not allow-
ed to coordinate the content or distrib-
ution of material produced by 527s,
such mailings and TV and radio spots
leave little doubt about the beneficiary
of the attack. The fact they carry names
like Foundation for Freedom and Dem-
ocracy, or Council of Motherhood and
Apple Pie, is a cynical attempt to add
credibility to their allegations.


Such ads also give candidates plausi-
ble deniability to shield them from the
accusation they engaged in negative
campaigning, which turns off some vot-
ers but also proves stubbornly effective.
We have been impressed as we have
met with candidates and incumbents in
recent weeks at the issues-based ap-
proach to their campaigns. But we
know the ads full of character attacks,
innuendoes and twisted "facts" are
coming.
We encourage voters to consider the
source when they see an ad that isn't
approved by a candidate. Research the
group responsible and ask yourself if
your values match the goals of such
groups.
Ask yourself further if people who
believe in winning at any cost are likely
to provide the kind of ethical leadership
that seems to be so lacking in our gov-
ernment today.


Who should pay?

BOB VEDDER

City council and the air-
port advisory board are
racking up legal bills as we
defend them in potential
Sunshine Law violation
lawsuits. The last amount
spent that I saw was
$100,000 and we were in
the early stages of the suits,
which just keep mounting
up.
The charges range from
meeting improperly, to
sending council business
e-mails to one another, to
using intermediaries to
communicate with one
another. Nothing has been
proven yet and likely there
will be a lot more smoke
than fire, but also there
probably will be some vio-
lations found.
It makes sense that the
city protects its directors
from malicious and frivo-
lous lawsuits. If it didn't, it
would get no takers for the
job. Council members
could be financially drain-
ed trying to defend them-
selves against people who
have nothing better to do
than sue them. I do not
know the Anthony Lor-
enzo who has brought all
the suits and have yet to
figure out why he has such
a burning interest in this
case, but it could be just as
simple as he expects those
governing to follow the
law.
What is not clear to me
is who should pay the
attorneys. It seems to me
on the surface that if any-
one is found guilty, the cit-
izens should not pay but
rather the elected officials
should. Yet I can see in
some cases where the vio-
lations might be very petty,
maybe so as not to receive
much if any penalty other
than requiring the offend-
er not to do it again.
But on the other hand,
it seems increasingly that
there could be some rather
blatant disregard for the
law and the instructions of
the judge involved. If that
is found to be true, then
the officials should be
required to pay. While that
may not be possible under
the law, I certainly would
think that severe violations
would set them up to be-
ing ousted in the future, if
not by some other action
now.

By's Crack: My min-
ister told me the other
day he hoped he would
see me on Sunday. I
didn't know he played
golf.


I was talking to my son
Scott and he gave me the
first wakeup call that he
thinks I am old.
I told him that the next
day I would be working
with Habitat building the
Gondolier Sun house in
South Venice and that I
would be working on the
roof. He suggested that I
let younger guys do that
work. (I wanted to ask him
if he had picked out my
retirement home, also.)
I went to the work site
on Saturday morning and
as it turned out the guys
were already on the roof,
one being our News Editor
Greg Giles. They have a
hard core of workers who
get the Habitat homes
built.
During the summer it is
Frank Rauch and Joe Jus-
tice, who are house lead-
ers, and Brian Piggott, Bill
Goetluck, Hal Parsons
and Dan Griffith, who
have all assisted for a long
time and really know how
to lead a lot of inexperi-
enced people to get a lot
done. They get joined in
October by another large
crew that works during
season.
Unfortunately the rain
knocked most of us out of
helping Saturday.
Oh, incidentally, of the
experienced guys I spoke
of, almost all of them are
older than I am. So there,
son!

On Sept. 1, Golda Rade-
feld, Chelsea Title manag-
er, is celebrating her 20th
year at Chelsea. She had 10
years before that as a real

way Moore, now Richard
Bradway and Associates.
She has done a lot for
the community and is one
of the neatest, most posi-
tive, upbeat people in
town.

Today's Ism: I'm retired
- I was tired yesterday
and I'm tired again today.

Since Jan. 1, we are
about a half-inch above
average rainfall, which is
quite a bit more than we
have experienced in the
last couple of years.

ing me up to date on

munity Foundation of

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Almost out of fingers to point


Editor:
Seems things have heated up in "Little Venice."
We still have those who are not responsible e-
mails, taxes, etc.
Then there was the comment of "keeping up with
North Port" We need to annex so it can't. Hurry, before it's
too late, decide if we are a retirement city or not. OK, how
many other retirees are out there living in Venice? Don't
a lot of people come here to retire? Come on.
Did anyone notice about the mining company getting
ready to mess up our drinking water? The EPA and
Swiftmud think this is a good idea. How does that work?
How about Swiftmud telling everyone they only put
out good water but there was a report of an area
infested with germs. Swiftmud stated that because of the
size of the area affected, they decided to notify those
using that water. So how many too- small-to-report cases
have there been?
Oh yes, even though we were running dangerously
low on water, we now have enough to support some
50,000 new homes. Remember how Swiftmud dried up
the Peace River? Then they decided to clean out the
aquifer too.
One last thing: If a roundabout is so great, how about
Sarasota County and North Port improve River Road and
41 by putting one in there? It'll save money, be safer and
function after a storm.
OK, Sarasota County, North Port, Swiftmud, EPA or
any of the other "not responsibles" got an answer?

Don't stuff that goose
Editor:
As a person who is sen-
sitive to social injustices,
you must be aware of the
plight of the hundreds of
thousands of ducks and
geese who are abused for a
"high-class" food item.
Nearly 500,000 ducks
and geese are tortured
each year in the United
States to produce the
gourmet "delicacy" foie
gras. And this doesn't in-
clude the countless birds
who die excruciating


deaths from lacerations to
their throats, internal
bleeding, stomachs literal-
ly exploding or being bru-
talized just for "fun" by
merciless farm employees.
No animal deserves to suf-
fer this amount of pain just
to appease the palate.
Foie gras production
universally ranks as one of
the cruelest forms of ani-
mal agriculture. Bans on
the product have been en-
acted in Denmark, Switz-
erland, the United King-
dom, Germany, Israel, Fin-


land, Luxembourg, Nor-
way, Poland, Sweden and
the Czech Republic. Cali-
fornia has signed a bill into
law that will ban the pro-
duction and sale of foie
gras.
A 2005 opinion poll
conducted by Zogby In-
ternational found that four
out of five NewYorkers are
in favor of a ban on foie
gras.
Please request our sen-
ators and representative
introduce legislation to
ban foie gras in our state.

Add'R' word
to list of no-nos
Editor:
I am asking that this
paper and your readers
help make a stand against
a word that has gained
popularity in culture, but
is offensive to so many.
The "R" word "retard"
- has found a place in
common language and
seems to be accepted by so
many. In fact, it is said 16
times in one scene alone
in the film "Tropic Thun-
der," which opened in the-
aters recently.
Special Olympics has
decided to lead an effort to
publicly address this lan-
guage and the negative
attitudes and behaviors
associated with the use of
the pejorative "retard."
Whenever it's used, the "R"
word" is dehumanizing
and demeaning to the 200
million people around the


world who have intellectu-
al disabilities, and to those
who love them.
There is a very real dis-
connect for countless peo-
ple between using this
term, which is rooted in
making unfair and often
unwarranted compar-
isons to people with intel-
lectual disabilities, and
their opinions toward our
population. They would
never dream of openly
mocking a person with
intellectual disability:
that's cruel, and they
would tell you so. But they
don't give a second
thought to saying "that's so
retarded."
The reality is it's not
funny. It's not cool. No
matter how you use it.
Help make much needed
change which will foster
acceptance and inclusion
of our community don't
say the "R" word.

those children on their birth

them for the next 18 years.
Because he did not declare
custody of those children,
struggling father was asked
to leave the Faith Program
until he could. When asked
to leave Faith, struggling

Safety, not electricity, comes first


INAKI REZOLA
GUEST COLUMNIST


Regarding the issue of
the Venice Community
Center lacking an emer-
gency generator as out-
lined in your story of Aug.
20, I would like to offer
some additional informa-
tion for consideration.
As the article correctly
stated, most general pop-
ulation shelters in Florida
and within our communi-
ty do not have generators.
Generators are not a re-
quirement for a shelter
designation.
The primary focus in
selecting risk shelters is
the safety of those who use
the shelter. Emergency
power would be nice, but
the main concern is that


LL I I tHbSfrom Page 6A

what struck me like a
baseball bat upside the
cranium was Obama's
response to the first ques-
tion posed. The minister in
charge said he gave each
candidate the first ques-
tion in advance and some
say McCain was not yet
sequestered in the "cone of
silence." So what?
Obama said, if elected,
his most important advis-


everyone safely survive the
storm.
Note that in most coun-
ties there are shelters with
back-up power for those
with special medical needs
requiring power. People
can call 861-5000 to deter-
mine if they meet the crite-
ria for use of a special-
needs shelter.
Regarding the issue of
food spoilage, be assured
that when shelters are
opened we take into
account the possibility of
not having any power and
plan meals accordingly.
We stock the shelters with
mostly shelf-stable foods
and products that can be
eaten cold if necessary.
It is important to con-
sider that generators alone
do not guarantee power.
Generator use can be lim-
ited by fuel-tank size and
the availability of fuel. The
generator and fuel source
must be also be adequate-
ly protected against high-
velocity missile impacts.
With Tropical Storm Fay
initially heading our way,
we opened four shelters in
Sarasota and DeSoto
counties. We sheltered

Michelle (opening speaker
of the Democratic Con-
vention), and his grand-
mother. Did he not have
time to consider his re-
sponse?

land, Estonia, Latvia and

By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist

A. My father was just fit
with two, new behind-the-
ear hearing aids which were
supposed to help him
understand conversation
better. He says things are
louder, but not clearer. His
audiologist says my father
may never be able to hear
some sounds because he does
not have any hearing left in
those tones. Is there
anything that could help him
with this problem?
Q. People with a significant
hearing loss have difficulty
recognizing speech
information, such as high
frequency consonants like /f/, /
s/, and /sh/. These inaudible
gaps make daily commun-
ication extremely difficult and
tiring. Frequency compression
is an innovative solution to
this most common challenge
facing people with hearing
impairment: poor perception
of high frequency sounds.
Frequency compression hear-
ing instruments effectively
extends the audible range by
compressing and shifting
inaudible high frequencies into
an adjacent area of lower
frequency where audible
hearing still exists. Frequency
compression identifies high-
pitched speech and
environmental sounds and
compresses them down into a
lower frequency range where
both hearing sensitivity and
discrimination ability are
better. Frequency compress-
ion was developed and verified
in extensive clinical trials in
Australia with severe to
profound hearing loss users
and there have also been
extensive field studies with
adults and children in Canada
and Germany that have shown
many benefits. To learn more
about frequency compression
hearing instruments and how
they might benefit you, call

POLICE BEAT


Business burglary
arrest
Sarasota County dep-
uties have arrested Law-
rence Albert Wagle, 45,
2000 block Woodmere
Road, for the Aug. 18 bur-
glary of Yummies Donuts
on Englewood Road, Ven-
ice.
According to a sheriff's
office press release, the
office received numerous
tips after releasing surveil-
lance photos of the sus-
pect in the crime, includ-
ing one from a witness
who said he had seen
Wagle wearing the cloth-
ing in the photos.
Arrested on
exposure charges
In April a female driver
flagged down a marked
Venice Police vehicle and
said that a male driver in
another vehicle was play-
ing with himself as he
drove next to her. The
vehicle he was in was
pointed out to the officer.
Upon being stopped the
driver, Ronald Fortune,
denied wrongdoing.
On Aug. 18, the VPD
received a complaint from
a different female about
a black male traveling
northbound in a four-door
silver Dodge Stratus. When
the driver and victim
stopped at the traffic light
at Bird Bay Drive and
North U.S. 41 Bypass, she
said she could clearly see
the driver inside his vehi-
cle masturbating. The dri-
ver looked over and smiled
at the victim.
The victim pulled
behind the driver's vehicle,
took down the his license
plate number and phoned
the police.
On Aug. 21, the victim
positively identified Ron-
ald Rickey Fortune, 41,
from a photo line-up.
Fortune was arrested Aug.
26 for lewd and lascivious
exposure of sexual organs
and during an interview
admitted to both crimes.
Busted in drug deal
On Aug. 25, at 2:45 p.m.,
a Venice Police detective
was parked in an unmarked
vehicle in the parking lot at
Crane Road and South


Tamiami Trail on unrelat-
ed business when he saw a
white male run in front of
his vehicle and wave down
someone driving a four-
door sedan.
He watched the man
make a transaction with
the person in the vehicle,
then followed the man
into the probation office at
2210 South Tamiami Trail.
After identifying him-
self as a law enforcement
officer, he asked the man,
Todd J. Wiley, 38, if he had
any illegal narcotics on
him. Wiley said he did and
took a cigarette box out of
his right front pocket con-
taining four pills. These
pills were identified as
oxycodone by using the
Drug Identification Bible
and Wiley was arrested for
possession of a controlled
substance.
Arrested on
loitering charge
On Saturday at 12:25
a.m., a Venice Police offi-
cer was on patrol in the
800 block of East Venice
Avenue when he saw an
unknown white male later
identified as Shaun Carl-
son, 18, standing by the
VFW Post. When he
attempted to make con-
tact with him, Carlson fled
to an unknown area.
The officer requested
that a perimeter be set up
and a K-9 unit respond to
the scene. The K-9 officer
and his dog located Carl-
son in the 800 block of
Country Club Way hiding
in some bushes across
from the VFW Carlson was
ordered not to move and
he was placed in hand-
cuffs.
As officers checked the
businesses in the area,

Catfish



galore

Unfortunately, the wrong cat-
fish are biting.
The inshore gulf is loaded
with these inedible hardhead
catfish. They are only here in
great numbers when the Gulf
gets choppy and messy. They will
probably be gone by Friday or
Saturday as the Gulf calms and
the discolored water clears.
There is a creature of the sea
that likes to eat these catfish -
sharks! They've been hooking
some sharks at the Venice
Municipal Pier on chunks or fil-
lets of these catfish.
I watched a couple of fisher-
men catching these 8- to 9-inch
pests the other day. Be very
careful when unhooking them.
About 10 years ago my friend got
zapped and had to go to the hos-
pital in the middle of the night.
The doctor told him that it was
unbelievable that they carry so
much bacteria.
This weekend we will have a
new moon. It may be the last
time this season that the snook
spawn. Sunday night every
keeper-size snook will disappear
from our area. They do it every
year. Their biological clock tells
them to take a hike because
snook season begins Monday.
Please contact me if you have
an interesting fishing story. Well,
fellow Sheapsheadites, the time
has come to say goodbye until
next week.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave Hack.

Young Indians sweep Fort






Myers in Preseason Classic


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

Words like "disciplined" and
"headstrong" are not usually
associated with a team with no
senior leadership.
But those were the very words
used by head coach Brian
Wheatley to describe his Venice
High School volleyball team
after their 25-21, 25-23, 25-13
win over Fort Myers High School
in the Preseason Classic Tuesday
in the Teepee. The Indians lost
all six starters from a year ago
and and return only four players
that have seen any playing time
at the varsity level, but they
appear to be reloading instead
of rebuilding.
"We've got a bunch of new-
bies out there and we've been
really working hard on doing our
things right, not worrying about
the other team and we did it,"
Wheatley said. "I'm happy for
our team because they have
been absolutely beaten down for
the last two weeks and they had
something to prove to them-
selves."


Three of the veterans had big
nights to carry much of the load
for Venice. Junior outside hitter
Dorothy Rahal led the team with
16 kills. Junior middle hitter
Jillian Allen registered five aces
and a block. Junior setter Taylor
Capasso finished up with 35
assists and three kills.
Even as Fort Myers kept the
score close in the first two games
young players such as junior
Emily Daniels, who had 20 digs
and nine kills in her first varsity
start, were able to keep their
composure.
"I thought we looked like a
very disciplined team, a very
headstrong team," Wheatley
said. "That's a scary thing (play-
ing in your first varsity match).
We've got a lot of people in the
stands and for a lot of these guys
it's their first varsity match ever
and they came right out of the
gun."
Fort Myers got out to an early
4-2 lead but Venice never
allowed the gap to exceed three.
The Green Wave led 20-18 before

Archer shows great




promise at tailback


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

Be careful timing your visits
to the concession stand this sea-
son. You might miss something.
It doesn't take long for Venice
High School's Dri Archer to
make something happen. The
senior tailback has packed 21
pounds onto his 5-foot-6-inch
frame and promises to be a spe-
cial player in the Indians' high-
octane offense.
"Dri's gonna be our main guy
at the tailback position," head
coach John Peacock said. "He's
also gonna be playing a little bit
at receiver, returning kicks,
returning punts."
Translation: we're going to get
the football into this guy's hands
any way we can.
As a junior, Archer made a
name for himself by returning a
punt 80 yards in the first quarter
ofVenice's 21-7 win over district-
rival Manatee High School. His
legend began to grow in the off-
season.
In the spring game with
Tarpon Spring High School,
Archer carried the ball 14 times
for 240 yards and two touch-
downs. The two scores came on
runs of 86 and 64 yards. In a
scrimmage during fall workouts,
Archer took his first two carries
for 80 yards against the first-
team defense.
"Everyone talks about (junior
quarterback) Trey Burton and
he's going to Florida, but Dri is
going to be the key to our
offense," Peacock said. "We're

expecting huge, huge things
from him. Expectations are very
high for Dri."
At only 158 pounds, ques-
tions continue to circulate about
his durability. Only the test of a
10-game season will answer
those questions.
Coaches have likened the
do-it-all speedster to former
Lakeland High School standout
and Florida running back Chris
Rainey, who's 5 feet 9 inches
and 185 pounds. Rainey helped
lead Lakeland to three consecu-
tive state titles and 45 straight
wins while rushing for more
than 7,000 yards and 90 touch-
downs in his high school career.


Archer simply doesn't have
time to pile up those kinds of
numbers in his senior season,
but 30 touchdowns (Rainey had
32 as a senior) is certainly not
out of the question.
Backing up Archer is junior
Rashad McRae. He isn't a threat
to score on every play like
Archer, but McRae is a solid back
in the mold of Jimmy Laurie or
Paul Costanzo, two seniors who
combined for 1,328 yards and 13
touchdowns while splitting the
load last season.
"I feel comfortable with him,

Venice boys golf team off to strong start


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High School boys
golf team opened the season in
strong fashion Tuesday, winning
a tri-match with Lemon Bay and
Cardinal Mooney high schools
by 14 strokes.
The Indians (2-0) shot 146 as
all four scoring players broke 40
on the front nine of the Panther
course at Plantation Golf &
Country Club in Venice.


"Any time you can break 150, I
think you've put a good score
out there," head coach Marty
Tarala said. "To have 146 as a first
match, I think that's excellent."
Tarala added that 146 is prob-
ably the lowest first round score
for Venice in 20 years.
Tim Garofalo and Tyler Jones
split the low round of the day, each
shooting a two-under-par 34.
Garofalo birdied the first hole and
chipped in for birdie on the par-4
fourth to get to two-under early.


Spencer Dunford and Kyle
Collison, playing in his first var-
sity match, each shot 39 to
round out the Venice scoring.
"I would have expected that
(out of Collison)," Tarala said. "He
was low medalist for qualifying."
Lemon Bay falls to 0-2 to start
the season while Cardinal
Mooney breaks even at 1-1.
Venice takes on North Port
High School Wednesday at
Heron Creek Golf & Country
Club in North Port. Tee time is


set for 3:30 p.m.

Staub retains her seat; Mason defeats


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

According to unofficial
results handed down late
Tuesday by the Supervisor
of Elections, Sarasota
County Commission Chair
Shannon Staub defeated
fellow Republican Barbara
Gross and held on to her
District 3 seat.
Unofficial totals showed
Staub received 21,349
votes to Gross' 13,800,
which amounted to 61
percent of the 35,149 total
votes cast.
As there was no chal-
lenging Democrat, this
primary served as the
actual election for the
county commission seat.
"I see these results as a
vote of confidence by the
voters, for what I've done
over the last 12 years,"
Staub said. "The people
feel they'd like to see that
continue four more years."
Staub was first elected
in 1996, then re-elected
in 2000 and 2004 without
opposition. In addition to
her duties on the county
commission, she chairs
both the Peace River
Water Authority and the
Community Health
Improvement Program,
and represents the coun-
ty commission on the
Criminal Justice Com-
mission.
Mason moves up
In the District 1 race for
Paul Mercier's seat,
Carolyn Mason defeated
fellow Republican Richard
Redding and will now face
Democrat Jono Miller
and Independent John
Mullarkey in November.
According to unofficial
tallies, Mason received
12,704 votes to Redding's
9,055, which amounted to
58 percent of the 21,759
total votes cast.
"I'm really excited that
the voters agreed with my
experience and I'm look-
ing forward to the general
election and my oppo-
nents," Mason said. "It's
going to be a good, hearty
race and I'm looking for-
ward to my experience
seeing me through that."
Mason, born in Sara-
sota, was elected to the
Sarasota City Commission
in 1999 and also served as


mayor in 2001 and 2002.
She works for Habitat for
Humanity and the
Salvation Army.

Zucker wins another
school board term

BY ANNE
KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

Caroline Zucker has
defeated Millicent Puleo in
the nonpartisan race for
Sarasota County School
Board, District 1, securing
another term.
Zucker received 71 per-
cent of the vote with 100
percent of precinct votes
counted.
Zucker, who spent the
evening waiting for the
election results at her
home in Sarasota with
about 30 friends and fami-
ly, was exuberant.
'Another four years. I'm
so excited that I can't
believe it," Zucker said.
"These are all the people
that helped me. They
stood on street corners for
me and drove around with
signs on their cars and put
signs on their lawns."
Zucker was first elected
to the school board in 1992
and served until 2000. She
was elected again in 2006.
During her next term in
office, Zucker said she
plans to continue current
school board programs.
"We'll be trying to live
within our fiscal budget,"
she said. "I know it's going
to be a tough year, but next
year is going to be worse.
I'll be making sure we have
a balance."
Puleo, who also spent
her evening at home,
received 29 percent of the
vote.
About 10,000 absentee
ballots still need to be
counted. However, the
results of the race wouldn't
change.

Voters reject
proposed charter
amendments

BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

According to unofficial
results handed down late


Tuesday by the Supervisor
of Elections, Sarasota
County voters emphatical-
ly nixed two proposed
charter amendments on
the ballot.
The first was an amend-
ment allowing the County
Commission to seek judi-
cial review on citizen-initi-
ated charter amendments,
while introducing a two-
year time limit on those
petitions.
With all 157 precincts
reporting and 36,093 votes
cast, county residents
defeated the initiative,
24,233 votes to 11,860.
That's 67 percent opposed
to 33 percent in favor.
Bill Earl, a board mem-
ber of Citizens for Sensible
Growth in Sarasota
County, was "pleased"
with the vote.
"We did not like the
two-year time limit on
(petition) signatures," Earl
said. "Right now there is
none."
Financial amendment
also loses
The second ballot item
asked voters to approve a
review of the financial
impact of proposed char-
ter amendments.
According to unofficial
results, with all 157
precincts reporting and
36,833 votes cast, county
residents defeated the ini-
tiative, 20,783 votes to
16,050. That's 56 percent
opposed to 44 percent in
favor.
Kindra Muntz, presi-
dent of Sarasota Alliance
for Fair Elections, defend-
ed her opposition to the
amendment.
"What about a charter
amendment that the
county commissioners
don't like?" she said.
"County auditors (could
do) a financial review that
casts (it) in the worst pos-
sible light."
Sarasota County Com-
missioner Joe Barbetta
was disappointed with
the votes on both mea-
sures.
"We thought these
amendments were well
intentioned," Barbetta said.
'And nobody showed up
at the public hearings to
speak (against them)."

Board election
results
With absentee ballots
still to be counted, three
candidates for Sarasota
County boards had large
leads over their oppo-
nents.
Cathy Layton was lead-
ing Stephen Aiken 64.24
percent to 35.76 percent
for the Republican nomi-
nation for the Sarasota
County Charter Review
Board District 2 seat. She
would face Democrat
Virginia Hoffman-Meketon
in the Nov. 4 general elec-
tion.
Dave Couch was ahead
of Bruce DiGiovanni 67.02
percent to 32.98 percent
for the Republican nomi-
nation for Sarasota
Memorial Hospital Board
Central District Seat 1. He
would face Democrat
Teresa Carafelli Nov. 4
Richard Merritt was
leading Jean-Noel Prade
70.12 percent to 29.88 per-
cent for the Republican
nomination for Sarasota
Memorial Hospital Board
Northern District Seat 1.
There is no Democratic
candidate for the seat, so
Merritt is elected if his lead
holds.
Thomas Towler claimed
Sarasota Memorial Hosp-
ital Board At-Large Seat 1
over fellow Republican
William Jensen, who with-
drew from the race too late
to have his name removed
from the ballot.

Mederos-Jacobs led the
12th Judicial Circuit Judge,

Unofficial results show,
with 100 percent of

Tuesday night, that
Mederos-Jacobs earned
50.7 percent of the vote,

However, 10,000

At press time Flipkowski

it would take about four

r" According
to a company that

Americans, it seems that, for

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

more aggressive treatment, others
may say that it indicates worsening

FEATURES EDITOR affects a high proportion of
young green sea turtles all over


Despite the hazards facing
sea turtles day in and day out,
there is just one state-certified
veterinary hospital in the world
- the Turtle Hospital at
Marathon in the Florida Keys.
Open since 1986, it is a work-
ing hospital, with the latest
equipment for diagnosis,
surgery and rehabilitation.
When I was there recently I was
taken through its surgery center
and shown X-rays of turtles that
had swallowed monofilament
fishing line, large hooks and
other human debris. I also
toured the rehabilitation area.
The hospital has its own
ambulance for transporting tur-
tles, a rehab center around a
large salt-water pool, individual
tanks and a pump and filtration
system to maintain water quali-
ty for diseased turtles that are
kept in isolation.
Turtles treated at the hospital
are brought there with a variety
of ailments and problems.
Some undergo amputation
of flippers severely damaged by
entanglement with monofila-


the world.
"Lisa is a green turtle affected
with these lesions," hospital
administrator Ryan Butts said.
"It is a cauliflower-like growth.
In the wild, it can cover their
eyes, blinding them ... "
Untreated, the lesions can
hamper swimming, eating and
even excretion, eventually lead-
ing to death.
At the Turtle Hospital, doc-
tors use laser scalpels to remove
the tumors, he said.
"We will keep Lisa for a year,"
Butts said. "If the lesions don't
grow back, we will release her
back into the wild."
He said that 70 percent of the
green turtles in the Florida Keys
are affected. There once was an
abundance of that species in
Venice but man and predators
all but made them extinct along
Sarasota County beaches. The
green turtle was prized by early
settlers for turtle soup but peo-
ple also harvested the turtle
eggs, further decimating the
population. During nesting sea-
son (May 1-Oct. 31) there are

Hospital care
and treatment
Joey, a green sea turtle,
has been at the Turtle
Hospital since it was a
hatchling. Joey was born
with a spinal deformity.
"He swam in circles and
upside down," Butts said. "Here
lie does fine. He has a great per-
,onality."
In the big pool at the hospital
here are 13 "permanent
guests." One is a Kemp's ridley
which was hit by a boat,
, attacked by a shark and caught
tup in a fishing line. Named
"Rebel," it has been at the hos-
pital for 19 years.
The day before visiting the
Furtle Hospital I was at the
I'heater of the Sea in
Islamorada, where I saw a turtle
which had been equipped with
Ilotation gear to keep its back
, -nd from sinking. A birth defect
resulted in an air bubble, which
prevented the turtle from diving
successfullyy for food. Unable to

I What action do you take?


WEST


A You might think that Christmas
has arrived very early this year, but
resist the temptation to double, First,
partner might not be able to stand the
double and take it out. Secondly, if
you pass and West does as well, part-
rm ner might reopen with a double. Now
you can pass with confidence. If you
play negative doubles, you have to
pass, and that is what you should do
even if a double would be for penal-
ties.

Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:

iders" 6AK965 97 oAQ1054 4A7
Partner opens the bidding with one
heart. What do you respond?

A If partner has a fit with one of
your two suits, slam is in the cards.
However, experience shows that it is
awkward to jump with a two-suited
hand but no fit tor partner. Start by
responding one spade and then jump
in diamonds at your next turn, if nec-
essary.

Q 3 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
7 vQJ85 ,o K9 Q87432

Partner opens the bidding with one
spade. What do you respond?

A Your singleton in partner's suit is
a flaw, not an advantage, so your
hand is nowhere near good enough
for a two-over-one response. Bid one
no trump. Partner's rebid, if any, will
determine further action.

Partner opens the bidding with one
club. What do you respond?

A Since your only four-card suit is
spades, it might seem automatic to
respond with one of that suit.
Because the suit is so shabby, some
might prefer one no trump. Neither
appeals to us. Since we have no
tenace to protect, there is no reason
why we should want to declare.
Make a waiting bid of one diamond
and see what partner rebids.

Q 5 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:

The bidding has proceeded:
WEST NORTH EAST SOUTH
3 Pass Pass ?
What action do you take?

A No club bid by you adequately
describes your hand (unless you want
to shoot out six clubs and hope for
the best). Game (or even slam) in
spades could be the right spot so,
while we would like to have a fourth
spade, we would start with a takeout
double and see what happens.

What do you bid now?

A This is a problem? Try as we
might, we could find no reasonable
bid other than a simple two clubs.
Since you have no idea at what level
or in what strain you want to play the
hand, a jump shift is out of the ques-
tion,

Expert tips to help you



enjoy guiltless grilling


DEAR ABBY
COLUMNIST


DEAR ABBY: For the
past 25 years, my husband,
"Don," has had his hair cut
by a woman I'll call "Barber-
Ella." She's slim, attractive
and full of energy. Don has
mentioned that she often
pats him on the leg and
kind of flirts with him.
We have been married
35 years, and I've never
had a reason to mistrust
him. Our life hasn't been a
bed of roses. We have a 30-
year-old disabled daugh-
ter who lives with us. I
have rheumatoid arthritis,
which causes me pain and
saps my energy. The med-
ication has made me gain
weight in my belly and
face, and I feel unattractive.
Barber-Ella seems to
have a lot of influence on
Don. She persuades him
to buy certain products,
and once talked him out
of a medical procedure
"because it went wrong for
a friend." Recently he told
me she has been telling
him dirty jokes and using
four-letter words in the
telling. Don says, "She likes
to see how red my ears
get." Although she is mar-
ried, I'm not convinced
that's all she's up to.
I feel this woman's
behavior is inappropriate.
Does this have more to do
with my own insecurities

than with her? Why does
she do this? Should I ask
him to change stylists?
Should I call her and ask
when she'll be adding lap
dances to her services?
I don't want to put Don
on the defensive or make it
seem like I don't trust him.
Please give me your opin-
ion because I'm losing per-
spective. REALLY UPSET
IN ST. PAUL, MINN.
DEAR UPSET: Gladly,
and here it is: Your hus-
band has been Barber-
Ella's client for 25 years.
She probably flirts with
him because she thinks
he likes it. (Her other male
clients may also find it
flattering.) As to the jokes,
she may tell them because
she heard them from other
clients, thinks they're funny
and is trying to entertain
him. If any of this posed a
threat to you, your hus-
band would not tell you
about it.
I'm a strong believer
in patterns of behavior.
Unless your spouse is get-
ting more haircuts than
he needs and his time is
unaccounted for, I don't
think you have anything
to worry about.

DEAR ABBY: I am the
youngest of four girls. I
share a room with my sis-
ter, "Noelle," who is the
next-to-the-youngest. We
fight a lot. Recently, during
an argument, Noelle told
me our oldest sister told
her our parents only had
me because Dad wanted
to try "one more time" for a
boy. She said Dad was dis-
appointed that I was a girl
and wished they hadn't
had a fourth kid.
I don't know if this is
true. My sister could have


said it to be mean. It makes
sense, though. I mean,
what man wouldn't be
hoping for a boy after three
girls? It hurts me to think
that I wasn't really wanted.
I love my dad, and I think
he loves me, but I always did
have the feeling that he was
somehow disappointed in
me and loved my older sis-
ters more. I'm afraid to talk
to him about it for fear of
finding out that it's true.
What should I do? HURT
IN SACRAMENTO
DEAR HURT: If you're
afraid to talk to your father,
then you should tell your
mother what Noelle said.
It was nasty, calculated to
hurt, and I'd be very sur-
prised if there was any
truth to it.
Let's look at it logically. If
that were true, then it would
apply to sister No. 2 and
Noelle not just you. Not
every man longs for a son.
Some are very happy to be
surrounded by women and
the center of attention.

FROM NAPSA

Warm weather means
pool parties, family gather-
ings and, of course, back-
yard cookouts! The best
part about grilling, besides
the juicy burgers, flavorful
kabobs and mouthwater-
ing steaks, is that it's a
healthy cooking method!
Providing generations of
Americans with countless
backyard memories, the
grill can merge a low-fat
diet into an essential part
of any healthy lifestyle.
In fact, 29 cuts of beef
meet government guide-
lines for lean, so the grilling
possibilities are endless.
Some of America's favorite
lean cuts include tender-
loin, T-bone steak and 95
percent lean ground beef
- perfect for those juicy
burgers.
Grill master Russell
Woodward encourages
meat lovers to get healthier
this summer by enjoying the
low-fat benefits that grilling
provides. Follow the helpful
tips below to grill your steaks
and burgers to perfection:
Choose the right cut
The more-tender cuts
- porterhouse/T-Bone,
top loin, tenderloin, ribeye,
rib, top sirloin, chuck eye
and chuck top blade are
all ideal candidates for the
grill and require only your
favorite seasonings or rubs
to boost the flavor.
Rubs are a blend of
seasonings, such as fresh
or dried herbs and spices.
They are used only to add
flavor, not to tenderize.
Apply rubs to the surface
of uncooked steaks and
ground beef patties just
before grilling.
Less-tender cuts such

as flank, skirt, top round
and chuck shoulder steaks
should be marinated for at
least six hours or as long as
overnight in a mixture
containing a food acid or
tenderizing enzyme.
Always marinate in the
refrigerator, never at room
temperature.
Marinating longer than
24 hours can leave a soft
surface texture.
Never save and reuse
a marinade. If a marinade
is to be used later for bast-
ing or served as a sauce,
reserve a portion of it
before adding the beef.
Allow 1/4 to 1/2 cup
marinade for each 1 to 2
pounds of beef.
Marinate in a food-
safe plastic bag or nonre-
active container such as a
glass utility dish.
Three easy steps
to grilling beef
1. Prepare charcoal
for grilling. When coals
are medium, ash-cov-
ered (about 30 minutes),
spread in single layer and
check cooking tempera-
ture. Position cooking grid
over coals. (To check tem-
perature, use a grill surface
thermometer or cautiously
hold the palm of your hand
above the coals at cooking
height. Count the number
of seconds you can hold
your hand in that position
before the heat forces you


to pull it away; four sec-
onds equals medium heat.)
2. Season beef straight
from the refrigerator, with
herbs or spices as desired.
Place on cooking grid
directly over coals.
3. Grill to desired done-
ness using a thermometer.
Cook burgers to at least
160F (medium doneness)
and cook steaks to at least
145F (medium-rare done-
ness). Allow steaks to rest a
few minutes before slicing
or serving to reduce the
loss of flavorful juices.
Tips to
master the grill
Grilling at medium to
medium-low temperatures
- about 400F ensures
even cooking. If the tem-
perature is too high, beef
can char and become over-
cooked on the outside
before the interior reaches
the desired doneness.
Trim excess fat from
meats to avoid flare-ups
while grilling.
Use long-handled tongs
for turning steaks; spatulas
for burgers. A fork will
pierce the beef, causing a
loss of flavorful juices.
For best results, use an
instant-read thermometer
to determine doneness.
For steaks and burgers,
insert the thermometer
horizontally into the side
(not the top) to check the
internal temperature.

"You've rocked my world,"
Sandra Finger announced as
she welcomed nearly 100
women to the Women With
Moxie mixer at the Boca
Royale Golf & Country Club.
"Venice shows up."
Businesswomen exchanged
cards, chatted and energized
the room announcing pro-
jects and programs. Organizers
Esther Bird, Finger, Angela


Balsinger and Paula Carney
enjoyed seeing the organiza-
tion make its debut in Venice
with such power.
Elsie Gilmer, founder of
Women With Moxie, Sara-
sota, encouraged the partici-
pants to visit the Moxie Web
site, www.womenwithmoxie.
com, for information and
membership opportunities.
At the mixer, Kathy Leavitt
and Nancy Carey discovered
they both went to Weymouth
High School in Massachu-
setts and lived just 2 miles
apart. Retired teacher Kathi
Cellura celebrated Balsinger,
her former student and one
of the organizers of the
event.
The next Moxie mixer is
scheduled for Sept. 8 at Boca
Royale from 5 to 7 p.m. and
then on the second Tuesday
of each month thereafter.
There is a $5 charge for non-
members.


Special event
Mark your calendar for
Sept. 6, when the Venice
Theatre offers an apprecia-
tion concert for Eric and Carl
Watters at 7 p.m. The per-
formers include Chris and
Karen Romig, Jennifer Harris
and the combined choirs
of the Venice Presbyterian
Church. Jack Perkins nar-
rates the gala, which is sure to
sell out. Planners promise
additional performers and
surprises.
The $25 tickets are avail-
able at the Venice Theatre
box office. Call 488-1115.
Kathy McGaughy, 488-2258,
can provide additional infor-
mation.

There are a few tickets left
for a champagne celebration
to benefit the Venice Per-
forming Arts Series Inc., fea-
turing Deborah Berioli, on


Sept. 28. The afternoon at the
home of Harry Fain and
Robert Watterworth offers
champagne, hors d'oeuvres
and music. Call 493-2746 by
Sept. 1 for information.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Esther Bird. This
committed woman is one of
the organizers of the Women
With Moxie mixer.
She dedicates her life to pro-
moting professional women.
As president of the Business
and Professional Women of
Englewood and Venice, she
was named Person of the Year.
She serves as vice president of
the Florida Federation of
Business and Professional
Women. She is a life skills
coach.
Esther Bird is one of the
