Catastrophic oversight in Venice condo xperss


BY JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

Engineers are investigating a
critical construction oversight in
the Ocean Sands condominium,
on Golden Beach Boulevard on
Venice island.
According to preliminary
investigations by engineers and
estimates from S&E Reno-
vations, the building is missing
at least two of the anchored foot-
ings that support the structure's
foundation.
Built in 1973, Ocean Sands
has been undergoing extensive
renovations since May of this
year by S&E. Photographs on the
company's Web site, www.seren-
ovations.com, show areas of the
building's interior where wood
support beams in the lower lev-
els have begun to fracture under
stress. S&E president Eric De-
Vaughn said this is a direct result
of the missing footings.
DeVaugn also said that he
doesn't know exactly how many
footings are missing from the
building's foundation.
"All I know is that there are
more than two missing," he said.
Venice Building and Code
Enforcement Director Hans
Behrens said the design flaw
would eventually cause a cata-
strophic structural failure.
"Certain points of the build-
ing may sink, crack, or partially
collapse," he said. "It's a very
dangerous situation."
Suspended
Footings are large concrete
slabs designed to hold the
weight of a building. They are
typically placed 5 to 10 feet
below ground level and are con-
nected to the building via steel-
reinforced concrete cylinders
called "pilings."
The piling/footing configura-
tion is specially designed to sup-
port structures in coastal flood
plain zones where floodwaters
may erode the ground beneath a
building.
Ground erosion may cause
buildings without proper rein-
forcement to become signifi-
cantly less stable. According to
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Administration, the only
practical solution to support
such a building is by using a
"deeply embedded column
foundation."
DeVaughn's company, initial-
ly hired to make cosmetic and
general upgrades to the struc-
ture, has suspended the project
in light of the recent discovery.

Renovations at Ocean Sands have been postponed until engineers decide on a course of action.


"The project is on hold until
the city approves an engineer to
design the fix," he said.
Missing
The original blueprints of the
Ocean Sands Subdivision show
where footings were supposed
to be placed beneath the condo-
minium. The drawings indicate
several 8-foot pilings embedded
in a 2-foot-wide, 10-inch-thick
slab of concrete.
Jon Caudill of the Florida
Building Commission section of
the Department of Community
Affairs said the uniform building
code the state adopted in 2002
does not apply to buildings con-
structed before the date it was
adopted.
"A new building on the coast
today would have to comply
with several requirements,
including the Florida Building
Code and federal coastal con-
struction regulations," he said,
"including federal elevation
standards that would include
concrete pilings to withstand
storm surge and wind."
It remains unclear exactly
why and how the footings were
overlooked. The blueprints,
signed by supervising architect
James A. Green, architect Don


S&E Renovations' master design for the Ocean Sands condominium.


Wilkinson and company called
the Oakley Development Corp-
oration, are the only construc-
tion record the city retains on
Ocean Sands. Attempts to con-
tact the businesses have so far
been unsuccessful.
A search for Oakley Devel-
opment Inc. with the Florida
Division of Corporations shows
the company has been inactive


since 1980. A subsequent search
of the address listed as company
headquarters, 4800 Lemon St.,
Suite 104, Tampa also provided
no information.
A licensure search for Green
and Wilkinson has so far been
unsuccessful

tide/nutrient

connection

BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Toxic red-tide blooms have
been fouling Southwest Florida
beaches, lakes, rivers and
springs increasingly in recent
months. They were responsible
for the high bacteria counts that
forced the closing of beaches at
the Venice Fishing Pier, on
Manasota Key and in Brohard
Park in June.
A lawsuit filed last month by
five statewide environmental
groups sought to compel the
U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency to set new limits on the
nutrient poisoning that triggers
those harmful blooms.
Limits on nutrient pollution
were imposed in 2004 on Florida
and the United States. A dead-
line was set for both govern-
ments for that year by a federal
court. But both have yet to com-
ply.
The problem is worse now,
four years later. According to
Manley Fuller, president of the
Florida Wildlife Federation, the
situation is menacing the state's
economy and wildlife.
Dr. Patricia Glibert, one of the
world's leading authorities on
the relationship between nutri-
ent pollution and algae blooms,
has investigated sources of red-
tide blooms for more than 30
years. The link between nutrient
overenrichment and the blooms
is evident, she has said. But
breaking it is complicated.
She will present her findings at
New College on Wednesday in
two seminars. Her research on
Florida's West Coast suggests, she
said, "The problem is not just a
simple one for Florida. It is global.
It exists in China and elsewhere.
"Everywhere we find it, it's
complicated, connected and
hard to overcome."
Glibert's afternoon presenta-
tion will be addressed to stu-
dents in a technical seminar. An
evening session will be for the
general public. Both will deal
with "the mechanisms by which
microscopic plants in the sea
find, utilize and recycle critical
nutrient elements, particularly
nitrogen."
She is on the research faculty
at the University of Maryland's
Center for Environmental Sci-
ence.


South County beaches didn't escape Tropic Storm Fay's wrath


BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER

Tropical Storm Fay barely
brought enough rain to create
puddles in Sarasota County.
But as the strange storm
moved across the state, it stirred
up the seas and eroded some
beaches on Manasota Key, an
official told Sarasota County
commissioners Wednesday.
In a beach renourishment
update, county Coastal Re-
source Manager Laird Wreford
identified two stretches of
southern Sarasota County
beaches that are critically erod-
ed and ready for an infusion of
fresh sand.
The first is a 1.55-mile stretch
encompassing Manasota Key
Public Beach, known locally as
North Beach, and 63 Gulf-front
properties between 7850 Man-
asota Key Road and 8570 Man-

asota Key Road. About half the
stretch is critically eroded, a des-
ignation given by the state that
translates to money from the
state.
Bringing the more than half a
million cubic yards of needed
sand to the area would cost

Manasota Key, south of the Pearl Motel, post-Tropical
Storm Fay.


$10.8 million, of which 12.4 per-
cent would be funded by the
DEP Wreford said.
The second area, much larger
and more expensive to renour-
ish, is a 3.8-mile stretch between
6010 Manasota Key Road and
7845 Manasota Key Road. The


entire stretch has been designat-
ed as critically eroded.
Beach renourishment there
would cost $29.2 million, of
which the state would kick in 20
percent.
In the past, beach renourish-
ment in Sarasota County has


been paid for by individual Gulf-
front homeowners, county tour-
ist tax dollars and the state.
Commissioners balked at the
high price tag for the second
area, and asked Wreford to focus
for now on the first.
"These costs tend to mush-
room," Commissioner Nora Pat-
terson said. "When I see a cost
like $29.2 million, all those
warning flags go up."
Commissioner Paul Mercier
stressed the value of healthy
beaches to the county.
"Beaches are our biggest as-
set," Mercier said. "Otherwise,
we'd be living in Arcadia, not
that that's a bad thing. I think the
problem belongs to everybody."

mental lawyer and Manasota
Key resident, attended Wednes-
day's meeting in support of

ROSARIA HAGLICH was born in1914 on an island
off the coast of Yugoslavia. She risked everything
in 1956 when she decided to flee Yugoslavia's
Communist dictatorship to find a better life for her
family. Haglich, her husband and six children
escaped on a cold and snowy December night in
their 15-foot motorless sailboat. A 100-mile jour-
ney across the Adriatic Sea landed them on the
coast of Italy. It was Rosaria's dream to bring her
family to America so they could have freedom and
opportunity, but they spent the next four years in
refugee camps with other Eastern European immi-
grants before her dream was realized. Rosaria
died in Sarasota in 2006 at the age of 92.

CITY NOTES
COMPILED BY NEWS
EDITOR GREG GILES

Permit process
on plan agenda
The Venice Planning
Commission will continue
its consideration of a
streamlined permit pro-
cess Tuesday.
The recommendations,
forwarded by the Archit-
ectural Review Board, are
intended to speed up the
permitting process and
result in fewer applicants
seeking waivers of rules
that govern construction
and renovation in the city's
Historic District and
Venetian Theme District.
Commissioners previ-
ously had some pointed
questions and raised con-
cerns in particular about
changing the threshold
that triggers full compli-
ance with city architectur-
al design standards.
The ARB wants the trig-
ger to be 50 percent of
whatever the tax record
indicates the structure is
worth renovations that
cost more than 50 percent
of the structure's value
would require the owner


SUN NEWSPAPERS 3A


to come into compliance
with all design standards.
But that's not consistent
with the definition of sep-
arate "50 percent" triggers
used by the county and
others.
The meeting, which
was postponed due to
Tropical Storm Fay, takes
place at 1:30 p.m. in city
hall, 401 W. Venice Ave.
Also on the agenda are
consideration of site plans
for: HomeBanc, request-
ing drive-through opera-
tions; the St. James retail
complex near the corner
of Pinebrook Road and
East Venice Avenue; and
801 E. Venice Ave., five lots
east of U.S. 41 Bypass, for a
5,000-square-foot build-
ing proposed for profes-
sional office use.
Huts not option
at Tramonto Vista
City council member-
sapproved the footprint
for the planned Tramonto
Park south of Sharky's on
the Pier Restaurant this
past week. They're still
finalizing what amenities
to include, but one thing is
almost certain it won't
include "chickee huts."


In addition to reaching
a consensus that the park-
ing lots shouldn't be
entirely asphalt, they qui-
etly concurred with a
Sarasota County position
that no chickee thatched
huts will grace the park.
The county, which will
maintain the park under
an interlocal agreement
with the city, has a say in
what amenities to include.
It "absolutely won't main-
tain any pavilions if chick-
ee thatch is used," warned
Acting City Engineer Kath-
leen Weeden. She relayed
the message from county
officials, who said vandals
at Manasota Beach "burn
chickee thatch at least
once a month."
Generator funding
sought
Council members are
not satisfied with the
anticipated two-year time
lag before the city is sched-
uled to purchase a genera-
tor for its storm shelter.
They, and some advisory
boards, are pushing to find
a new funding source.
Council members que-
ried Finance Director Jeff
Snyder and Interim City


Manager Nancy Woodley
last week on possible ideas
to fund the generator.
Voters OK'd the genera-
tor purchase when they
renewed the 1-cent sales
surtax, but revenue won't
start coming in for two
years.
Jim Leis, chairman of
the Citizen Tax Oversight
Committee and Citizen
Bond Oversight Comm-
ittee, on Aug. 26 recom-
mended to council it
either use proceeds raised
from the 2003 bond that
funded renovations to the
Venice Community Center
or set aside unspent rev-
enue from the previously
authorized 1-cent sales
surtax funds to purchase a
new generator.
Woodley, meanwhile,
said staff is researching
costs and actively seeking
grants. They're currently in
discussions with Gulf
Coast Community Found-
ation ofVenice.
City manager
search continues
A search committee
consisting of Mayor Ed
Martin, City Clerk Lori
Stelzer, and Assistant City


AttorneyWayne Hall sent a
request for proposals to 15
headhunter firms, Martin
announced Tuesday. Six
proposals were received,
he said, with fees ranging
from a flat fee of $16,5000
to one-third of the first
year's salary for the posi-
tion more than $50,000.
Martin said the com-
mittee plans to review pro-
posals in more detail and
develop a short list of the
three "best" firms, then
begin checking references
on the firms.
"We would like to see if
(we can gain) consensus
on one firm, and then
have that firm make a pre-
sentation to council, and
council can decide whe-
ther to award the con-
tract," he said.
The firm that is award-
ed the contract will inter-
view each council mem-
ber and select city staff to
help develop an ideal can-
didate profile, "so every-
one here will have chance
to make input."
Unsolicited resumes,
Martin said, will be saved
and forwarded to the city's
search firm "to add to their
portfolio and research


them."
City council members
agreed to continue with
the search process as
described. It could take up
to six months to conclude.
Council action
City council took the
following actions at its reg-
ular Aug. 26 meeting:
Approved the pur-
chase of a Vactor truck
from Environmental Prod-
ucts of Florida. The
$275,051 purchase will
replace the current truck
that, among other things,
sucks up spilled sewage.
Approved spending
$600 to join ICLEI-Local
Governments for Sustain-
ability and obtain an emis-
sion modeling program;
and hiring a consultant to
help complete the city's
global emission inventory
and cooperate with the
county and other munici-
palities to complete an
community action plan.
The cost: $15,000. The
funding source is undeter-
mined
* Agreed to schedule a
shade meeting to discuss
the Lorenzo vs. City of
Venice Sunshine Law suit.

OUR VIEW



It's time we got to vote for president


At the end of the most tangled and
troubled presidential primary in
recent memory came renewed
calls for a change in the process we've
used to select a president for more than
two centuries.
Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson renewed
the call to end the Electoral College sys-
tem, or, as he put it, "to abolish this
archaic way we elect presidents."
If is fitting and natural that the state-
ments should come from Florida, home
to the dimpled-chad fiasco that was the
2000 presidential election. We need lit-
tle reminder that Florida's delayed elec-
toral votes, tossed to the Republicans
when the U.S. Supreme Court threw the
final flag, swayed the Electoral College
count toward the candidate who tallied
the second-most popular votes overall
nationally.


No matter. Those were the rules, and
members of the winning and losing
political parties lived with the results
and went on, even if the rules them-
selves were nonsensical from the 21st-
century perspective.
The logic for reform is simple:
We elect officials for no other office
using this type of system only the
most important office in the land.
It would be as if we selected our gov-
ernor or U.S. senators by county votes
weighted by population of each county.
Charlotte might get 14, Sarasota, 32;
DeSoto, 4; Miami-Dade, 220. The candi-
date with 50 percent plus one would
win.
If someone proposed such a system,
we'd dismiss it as absurd. But that's what
we've got on a national scale. We accept
it as worthy and wise because it's what


our Founding Fathers devised (except
that it was revised by constitutional
amendment in 1804) and because it's
always worked in sync with the popular
vote (except three times).
"I don't think anyone would argue
that the person who gets the most votes
ought to be president," Nelson said. "We
operate on the basic principle of major-
ity rule and one-man, one-vote."
Agreed. But we won't hold our breath
waiting for a change.
Historical inertia is extraordinarily
strong. It would take a crisis of constitu-
tional confidence an election in
which one candidate wins by 5 million
popular votes, say, but loses in the
Electoral College for any initiative to
gain momentum.
Then, there would be the haggling
over the details of a new system. Would


the winning presidential candidate
need to win 50 percent of the popular
vote? If the top vote-getter got less than
50 percent because of a strong third-
party presence (the 1992 Bill Clinton
scenario), would the top two hold a
runoff? When?
On and on.
Then there's the monumental, un-
wieldy process of amending the Con-
stitution. No easy feat, by design.
With all the roadblocks in addition
to some valid arguments for retaining
the system it is not likely to happen.
In the meantime, the least we can do is
improve the process used by the two
major political parties to chose their
candidates.
That should happen, that is likely to
happen and that would be a healthy and
welcome step toward electoral reform.


Another race that was
very, very close was the
Larry Eger vs Ron
Filipkowski race, where 1
percent separated them.
Still, money prevailed.
The second column is
who ran a negative cam-
paign. I would call it crud-
dy campaigning, or some
other less savory term.
Only two campaigns
went over the top. One was
in the property appraiser's
race, in which a Venice
shell campaign organiza-
tion mailed unsavory, mis-
leading and very negative
pieces against Jim Todora.
It was junk.
Though dishonest, that
apparently is considered
acceptable for politicians.

If left blank there is no clear cut winner


The first column, mon-
ey raised, is usually a good
indicator of who might
win. It looks as if in every
case but one the person
with the most money won
the race.
That one race was an
important exception, how-
ever. That one was Nancy
Detert vs. Mike Grant.
Grant had raised twice as
much as Detert and it
shows in some of the other
indicators.


However, I was shocked to
see Eger, who was running
for public defender, to
stoop to outright misrep-
resentations. He sent two
of those kinds of pieces
out. This is a person you
expect to be absolutely
above board in the court-
room.
There is one consultant
in particular who uses this
tactic, and I know of one

I watch with great interest as people talk a

The first obstacle that comes to mind is g

reasonable advice con-
cerning the airport: "com-

Fiscal conservatives?
No, fiscal radicals
Editor:
Not only have I been a
Republican most of my
life, I have often been an
obnoxious Republican.
The overriding reason for
this was that Republicans
were the party of fiscal
conservatives.
Throughout genera-
tions in our family it was
gospel that the Democrats
were the big-spending
party of special interests,
and the Republicans were
prudent guardians of the
public's money. Wow, have
the last two decades been
a shock to me.
When Bill Clinton was
elected president, busi-
nesspeople (myself in-
cluded) were horrified that
he had never even worked
in the private sector. I
couldn't stand him. But, lo
and behold, he proceeded
to prune spending and

successful campaign that

and rejected his approach.
Those other candidates
won, but they also had
raised the most money.
I have always wondered
if the person with the most
yard signs wins. It almost
proved out. In the two races
that were the closest, public
defender and judge, I felt
that the loser had more or
better signs, but not by
much. In the sheriff's race,
Tom Knight ended up with
more signs but early on was
behind. I loved Larry Dunk-
lee's tall, thin, unique signs.
The most mailers, ads or
phone calls is next; that
trails the most money as an
indicator.
Poor Mike Grant. He sent
out a boatload of fliers. I
even got a couple of nice
calls from Charlie Christ
asking me to support Mike.
Mike's money and ads
could not reverse one im-
portant factor I didn't put
on the form, and that is
name recognition, coupled
with experience. He did
great in Charlotte County,

tiny portion of the district.

Former Halliburton
CEO Cheney confidently
predicted that Iraqi oil rev-
enues would completely
pay for the reconstruction
of Iraq.
Secretary of Defense
Rumsfeld fired anybody
who disagreed with his
projection that the Iraq
war would not cost more
than $50 billion.
Yet Republicans like
Florida's 13th District Rep-
resentative Vern Buchan-


cases. In fact, that was the
one thing Nancy Detert
dominated in and may
have been the difference for
her. Richard Redding had
slightly more endorse-
ments than Carolyn Mason
but in this case name rec-
ognition (Carolyn had been
a Sarasota City Commis-
sioner) helped make the
difference in that county
commission race.
Todora had the most en-
dorsements but that could
not overcome the dollars
raised to oust him, and he
had few signs and an un-
imaginative campaign.
Other endorsements
were hard to judge. Those
worked except for Grant,
who just could not use
Charlie Christ enough to
win. That was a big coup,


an, who consistently vote
to appropriate $12 billion
per month for the seem-
ingly endless war in Iraq,

No doubt he'd rather
have a "yes" man in Mike

right, not just what the

reason this paper chose her.
I could have used other
criteria most doors

all of these certainly are

They're called bike lanes for a reason


Dangerous. Do contractors and landscapers know
the rules about parking in bike lanes? It's illegal for a very
serious reason it interrupts traffic flow. A moment of
laziness on a contractor's part can jeopardize the safety
of many people driving up and down the street all day
long. Please find some place else to park. That includes
by the curb where you can't see the traffic coming
around the corner and putting trash cans in the street as
opposed to the next of the street.


Robbery. Seniors, do
you know how much tax
you paid on your Social
Security income last year?
Do you know how much
unfair and unjust tax you'll
pay on your Social Secur-
ity this year? Just try to get
Congress to listen to you.
Even a local politician
who's running doesn't pur-
sue the appeal of this tax
he knows is hurting se-
niors and the economy.
Bet you can't get any politi-
cian to listen to you. Good
luck voters on this unjust,
unfair issue.
Underpaid. I'm calling
about the person who
called in saying that Medi-
care was no gift and that
they got their Social Se-
curity number in 1942,
and paid into Social Se-
curity and Medicare for 62
years. Just a correction.


Medicare was not passed
by Congress until 1965, so
deductions on that started
in 1966. So that person
only paid into Medicare
for 36 years. In addition,
unless that person was
earning the maximum
amount during the major-
ity of that period of time, I
am willing to bet that the
amount of money that
that person contributed
for the Medicare premi-
ums is no way near the
cost of one year's equiva-
lent of Medicare insurance
at age 76.
They just need to check
their Social Security state-
ment, which shows a rec-
ord of all their earnings
and contributions, and
they'll be shocked at the
very small amount that
they ever paid into Medi-
care for that period of


time.
The usual. "America
deserves better than poli-
tics as usual" the epito-
me of hypocrisy, Vern. You
are politics as usual. You
criticize Congress for its
lack of legislation. Are you
not a member of Congress
who stymies every thing
that comes your way? No
wonder little gets through.
Check your negative vot-
ing record, Vern. So, don't
give us that "politics as us-
ual" tripe, Vern; you are
politics as usual, along
with your oil-drilling bud-
dies.
Silver lining. The best
thing about Tropical Storm
Fay was the fact that we
were spared all the news
about Obama and Mc-
Cain. It was great.
Unconscionable. I'm
calling about Mrs. Pack-
ards' letter to the editor
about her child support
being held up by the state.
Whoever is running that
program should be fired.
Holding up her money is
unconscionable. This is
terrible. I hope you receive
a thousand calls about
this.

Myakka Pines rezoning allows for more new homes


BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER

A rezoning request for a
housing development was
approved by a 3-1 margin
at Wednesday's Sarasota
County Commission meet-
ing despite objections over
limited access.
As a result, builder John
Cannon has permission to
go ahead with plans to
develop 877 units on 438
acres surrounding Myakka
Pines Golf Course.
Without the rezoning,
he would have been limit-
ed to fewer than a quarter
of those units, seriously
compromising potential
profits. Failure would also
have compromised Can-
non's vision for a commu-
nity with what he describ-
ed as "a sense of place."
"Without today's ruling,
we would have been stuck


with 205 units that would
have looked like any other
community," Cannon said
after the meeting. "It
would have appealed to a
narrower segment."
Once built out, the pro-
ject is expected to bring at
least $1.2 million in rev-
enue for Sarasota County
annually, according to
Steven Schriever with
Fishkind & Associates in
Orlando.
Located just north of
the intersection of River
Road and Winchester
Boulevard, the develop-
ment has limited frontage
on South River Road. That
frontage includes the
development's only en-
trances: two roads, set a
few hundred feet apart. A
development with more
than 100 units is required
by the county to have a
second entrance.


Developers say there
could be two more future
roads, maybe. One to be
named Gissinger, would
be an extension of Win-
chester Boulevard. The
other would connect to
West Villages Parkway,
maybe.
Commissioners ques-
tioned approving a devel-
opment based on such
uncertainties as roads
being built in the future,
promised or not.
Most strongly opposed
was Commissioner Paul
Mercier, the lone board
member against the re-
zoning.
"I think this project is a
little premature," Mercier
said. "There's no secon-
dary access and none in
the near future."
Tom Minnich, presi-
dent of South West County
Alliance of Homeowners


Association, was the only
other voice of dissent at
the public hearing.
"I have been opposed
since the beginning main-
ly because of limited
access from what I consid-
er a substandard River
Road," Minnich said.
Mercier was concerned
over the timing of the pro-
ject.
'As it is now, it maxi-
mizes profits for the
builder," Mercier said. "I
have great concern on the
direction we're going with
this project."
But the member-
owned Myakka Pines Golf
Course, originally oppos-
ed to the project, subse-
quently gave it a thumbs-
up with 245 members vot-
ing in favor and 158 op-
posed.
Cannon is hoping many
new home buyers at


Myakka Pines will come
from the golf course mem-
bership.
"We think it's a growing
area," Cannon said. "Eng-
lewood is establishing
more and more its own
identity. The small-town
feel of Englewood is at-
tractive to a lot of people."
Other commission mem-
bers were more appre-
ciative of the diligence
applied by the developers
to ensure the project was
compliant with the coun-
ty's 2050 plan.
"This is something we
said we wanted there,"
Commission Chair Shan-
non Staub said, address-
ing Cannon and his team.
"You made it happen with
no variances and no
waivers."

Venice's historic Lord-Higel House 'signs up'


BY AUDREY
BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

The Lord-Higel House,
which officially received
its new name at the Aug.
12 Venice City Council
meeting, is in the process
of being restored.
The name was changed
from Lord House. The
house is at the corner of
Granada Street and Ave-
nida des Parques.
A sign depicting the
house's historical back-
ground was a topic of dis-
cussion for the city's His-
torical Preservation Board.
James Hagler, director
of the Venice Archives and
Historical Collection, ask-
ed the board to approve
one of three bids from
local sign companies for a
sign to be placed near the


house during its renova-
tion.
Bids were received from
Berlin Sign Company, esti-
mated at $1,150; H & H
Signs Inc., estimated at
$720; and Dorsett Signs
Inc., $840.
Hagler recommended
H & H Signs Inc., because
its design was attractive
and he believes it will be
long-lasting, with PVC
caps and board. He had
given text to each compa-
ny for their mock-up and
said the text and some of
the styling could change if
board members wanted
changes.
"This is just a starting
point," Hagler said.
Vice Mayor John
Moore, city council's liai-
son to the board, remind-
ed Hagler the city has its
own sign shop.


"We have a city sign
shop," Moore said.
"I've been there," Hag-
ler said. "They are unable
to do signs of this quality."
The board approved the
bid from H & H Signs Inc.
The next step for Hagler
is a city permit.
Other business
In other business, the
board:
SApproved a new appli-
cation for people to use
when they want to reno-
vate historic structures.
Those that require major
review will go to the board;
changes requiring minor
review will go to the com-
mittee, composed of Hag-
ler and Hans Behrens, di-
rector of building and
code enforcement for the
city.
Discussed whether to


participate in the Preserve
America Program, which
Venice MainStreet may
also be exploring. Partici-
pation can provide in-
creased funding possibili-
ties, except for brick-and-
mortar activities, and net-
working opportunities for
small towns such as
Venice, as well as White
House recognition and im-
proved visibility through
the state tourism office.
Board member Judie
Bauer will research it fur-
ther.
Heard a report from
Jean Trammell, board
chair, who said she unoffi-
cially attended a meeting
of a blue-ribbon panel that
is developing a master
plan to pull together all
historic nonprofit groups
- city and county and
reduce redundancy. A


report should be generat-
ed at the end of September
and go to county commis-
sioners in October.
"I do not know at what
level the city wants to be
involved, but I felt it was
important that I sit on it,"
Trammell said. "It will be
interesting to see what the
report says. Nothing is
written in stone."

beach renourishment.
A sea turtle advocate,
Boote said his property
may not benefit from the
proposed renourishment,
but he strongly supports it
for its value to turtle pro-
tection.
"There are only two
choices," Boote said. "Sea-
walls and beach nourish-
ment."
He's not a big fan of
walls, but he also believes
property owners are enti-
tled to some protection.
Commissioners asked
Wreford to come up with
an equation for funding
beach renourishment that
would fairly attribute a
value beach- and bay-
front homeowners would
get for having property
either on or across the
street from the beach.
"Being across the street
also increases the value of
their property," Boote said.
"There is a value to most
bayfront owners, but
much smaller (than for
Gulf-front homeowners)."

Grading the

Indians vs.

Cardinal

Mooney

Quarterbacks: C+
Trey Burton is going to get
graded a little harder this
season based on the
expectations surrounding
the junior quarterback.
Burton threw one inter-
ception that was more the
fault of the receiver than
his own, but he also fum-
bled the ball twice a
problem he dealt with last
season.

Running backs: A+
Wow. Senior tailback Dri
Archer ran for 261 yards
and five touchdowns on 10
carries. The secret is out on
the 5-foot-7, 158-pound
speedster. Also worth not-
ing: The Indians have
apparently settled on a
fullback. Junior Justin
Bailey played most of the
game there.
Offensive line: A-
They don't have to make
big holes for Archer to get
through, and Lopez, Nagle
and Co. got the job done
Friday night. They cleared
the path to the secondary
and Archer did the rest.
They did allow a pair of
sacks against a D-line that
shouldn't have gotten any
penetration.
Receivers: C+
Mike Bishop had a big day
with three receptions for
32 yards. Justin Grant had
a good night, too, but
needs to learn to run for-
ward, not backward. He
caught a pass good for at
least 16 yards but ended
up backtracking for a 9-
yard gain and no first
down. Tight end Brandon
Wilkinson should know
when to turn around, as
well. A pass hit him in the
back and resulted in an
interception.
Defensive line: C
The hogmollies got good
pressure on Cardinal
Mooney quarterback
Robby Lyons, but their
run-stopping ability has to
be a concern. Venice gave
up 145 yards rushing to
Stephen lerulli. The
Indians gave up more than
100 yards on the ground
only twice last season.
Linebackers: B
lerulli averaged just less
than 5 yards per carry.
That's about where the
linebackers got him.
Defensive backs: C-
They're new, so they will
have some growing pains.
Lyons shredded the Venice
secondary in the first half,
completing 100 percent of
his passes until the final
two plays before intermis-
sion.

Special teams: A-
Archer was a threat to take
it to the house every play
- even when they didn't
kick to him. One high
pooch kick was rolling
toward the end zone and
away from Archer when he
came back, scooped it up,
changed direction and
took it 88 yards. This grade
is an A+ if the Indians send
10 players out on the first
extra point.

Venice High kicks off the season with a 44-21 victory over Cardinal Mooney.


Just how they 'Op' it up


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice High School senior run-
ning back Dri Archer compiled
261 rushing yards and five touch-
downs on 10 carries inVenice's 44-
20 win over Cardinal Mooney
High School Friday night. He
added 107 yards to his all-purpose
total on three kickoff returns -
one of which went 88 yards for a
score.
Take a moment to examine
these numbers.
With 368 all-purpose yards, the
5-foot-7, 158-pound back ac-
counted for 76.5 percent of the
Indians' total net yards.
With 13 touches, that's 28.3
yards per touch.
That's 2.77 points per touch,
excluding extra points.
"I had some fun," Archer said
after the game. "I was just looking
for the open field and getting into
the end zone."
Archer kept Venice in a game
that could have gone the other
way. Cardinal Mooney actually led
21-20 at the half.
The Cougars executed well
their game plan to keep the Venice
offense off the field.
Cardinal Mooney chewed up
more than 35 minutes of game
clock as they converted 16 first
downs and senior running back
Stephen lerulli carried the ball 30
times for 145 yards.
Venice's lack of possession time
could be attributable to the fact


that their longest of five touch-
down drives took all of 1:24, how-
ever.
By the second half, the Indians'
size and athleticism took over.
Archer's running lanes got wider
and lerulli's narrowed down. The
Cougars back also struggled with
cramps in the second half, which
limited his carries after intermis-
sion.
Defensively, Venice's Kye Rod-
gers, Dino Fanti and Ben Steele
each sacked Cougars quarterback
Robby Lyons once. In the sec-
ondary, which struggled in the
first half, junior Justin Grant came
down with an interception inside
the Indian 10 yard line early in the
third quarter. Venice capitalized
with a touchdown and it was
downhill from there for the Cou-
gars.
Venice scored on their first play
from scrimmage on, you guessed
it, a 65-yard touchdown run by
Archer. The Cougars blocked the
point after when Venice took the
field with just 10 players.
Cardinal Mooney handed over
a gift on the next play when
senior running back Stephen
lerulli lost the ball at his own 31
yard line. Venice returned the
favor on the following play when
senior receiver Robert Fordham
dropped the ball on a screen at
the Cougars' 27.
Cardinal Mooney put together
a 6-minute scoring drive that cul-
minated with a 1-yard touchdown
run by lerulli.


After another pair of turnovers
by both teams, Archer punched in
a one-yard touchdown set up by a
24-yard connection between Ven-
ice quarterback Trey Burton and
receiver Mike Bishop.
The Cougars then took a 14-13
lead on a 9-yard touchdown pass
from Lyons to receiver Dylan
Knopfke.
Archer returned the ensuing
kickoff for 88 yards and a score to
put Venice up 20-14.
Once again, Cardinal Mooney
ran the clock down six minutes on
a sustained touchdown drive
capped off by a 15-yard Joe Cera-
volo touchdown reception from
Lyons to give the Cougars a 21-20
lead going into the locker room.
In the third quarter, Archer
broke a 50-yard run to the four
yard line. That set up another
Archer touchdown, this one of
two yards.
Leading 28-21 after the two-
point conversion, Venice forced
the Cougars into a three-and-out.
The Indians took over at their own
36, and Archer promptly took it 64
yards for his fifth score of the
night.
Archer added another 34-yard
touchdown run in the fourth to
bring the final to 44-20.
The Indians open the regular
season Friday at 7:30 at Powell-
Davis Stadium in Venice against
Riverview High School.

Muscato wins awards at youth sailing dinner


BY JABBO GORDON
CORRESPONDENT

Alicia Muscato of North
Port was beginning to feel
like proverbial brides-
maid.
She placed second in
many Venice Youth Boat-
ing Association races
throughout the year and
the top spot was seeming-
ly unattainable. But no
more.
Muscato's near perfect
attendance and persis-
tence paid off in the long
run. At VYBAs annual din-
ner and awards ceremony
held at the Venice Yacht
Club last Saturday, she
won the Smith Barney
Low Point Perpetual Tro-
phy, which goes to the
skipper in the Red, White


and Blue Optimist Fleet
who has the best overall
score in series races dur-
ing the school year.
Cara Patete won the fall
and winter series but fin-
ished fourth in the spring
series when she missed a
few sessions, giving her six
points.
Muscato placed second
to Patete in the first two
series events, but won in
the spring, accumulating
only five points and the
overall title.
"I thought I was second
because Cara won the
summer series," Muscato
said later.
Ironically, the two had
tied during the summer
series, and Patete did take
the title in a tie breaker,
but that series did not


count in the Smith Barney
competition.
Muscato also accepted
the Louise Swift Memorial
Award which is awarded to
the VYBA sailor who best
exemplifies his or her
commitment, loyalty and
perseverance.
Bryan White, a Venice
High School senior, cap-
tured the Morgan Stanley
Trophy, which was donat-
ed by the Robert Waldron
family.
It goes to the Ports-
mouth division sailor with
the best series score for the
year. VYBA's Portsmouth
division is for sailors who
have moved up from the
Optimist class vessel.
White also took the
Sidney C. Schroeder Sports-
manship Award for this


year. Given intermittently
since 1960, the award is
named in honor of the first
pram master at the Venice
Yacht Club.
Stephan VerHulst gar-
nered the Mark and Caren
Rom Trophy. It goes to the
member of the Ernest
Green Fleet, which is for
first year competitors, who
had the best overall series
total.
Horace Cook, VYC com-
modore, presented the
trophies and plaques to
the youngsters and com-
mented how much his
granddaughter had en-
joyed learning to sail here
this past summer.
The young sailors not
only received plaques for
their achievements but
had their names engraved


on the major awards,
which are displayed in the
yacht club.
Last year, the winners
were announced but not
all of the awards were pre-
sented. Therefore, all 2007
winners were honored as
well. They were Ben Moh-
ney, Smith Barney; Mi-
chelle Thomas, Morgan
Stanley; Patete, Rom Tro-
phy; Chloe Dietrich, Lou-
ise Swift Award, and Mus-
cato, Schroeder Sports-
manship.
More than 80 sailors
and family members at-
tended the annual event
since the VYBA has the
largest Green Fleet (14)
that it has had in recent
years. Altogether, there are
32 skippers sailing for the
group.

LABOR DAY PICNICS AND MORE 3B

OUR TOW


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

After more than 15 years of
being on stage, it is time for Eric
Watters and his brother, Carl, to
stand aside.
Saturday, Sept. 6, their
numerous fans and friends will
pay tribute to Eric and Carl,
entertaining the entertaining
fundraisers.
Since 1993, when Eric began
his annual benefit for the Venice
Symphony, "Eric Watters and
Friends," the Watters brothers,
pianist Jim Cox, symphony
board members and others
have raised close to $200,000 for
the symphony, its Symphony in
the Schools program, and other
causes.
Eric is already planning his
next benefit show, but he is
doing so with one major chal-
lenge. Brother Carl was diag-
nosed with Amyotrophic lateral
sclerosis (ALS, also known as
Lou Gehrig's Disease) and will
not be able to dance alongside
his brother and Jim Magero as
one of the Dum Dee Doo Wahs.
ALS is a progressive neurode-
generative disease that affects
nerve cells in the brain and the
spinal cord, according to infor-
mation found at www.alsa.org.
While Carl may not be danc-
ing in the next show, he will
continue to be one of his broth-
er's best cheerleaders.
"I was thinking about the
songs of Fred Astaire," Eric said,
adding that Astaire sang songs
written by so many of the best


part of Scrooge for several years,
to the delight of his friends.
Type casting had nothing to do
with his selection for the role.
Kathy McGaughy who has long
played Scrooge's maid, Mrs.
Dilber, will be part of the tribute
show.
"We're also going to have a
couple of the kids who benefit-
ed from the Symphony in the
Schools program," McGaughy
said. "The symphony will per-
form most of the second half of
the show."
Also scheduled are appear-
ances by Chris and Karen
Romig, Jennifer Harris and the
combined choirs of Venice
Presbyterian Church. Eric and
Carl have been members of the
church for years and Eric sings
in the contemporary choir
there.
Jim Cox has been Eric's piano
accompanist for years. For this
tribute show, Eric will have to sit
back and listen or will he?
Unlike the "Eric Watters &
Friends" shows which have had
as many as five performances in
one year (2000), the tribute con-
cert honoring the two brothers
will only have one performance
- 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, at
the Venice Theatre.
For many of the "Eric Watters
& Friends" shows, the cast had
to work around whatever set
was on stage at the theater. In
2002, the Friends danced
around a stage filled with stairs
for "The Will Rogers Follies."
"I just designed the whole
show around that," Eric said
about that show.
Another part of planning
every show is the in-depth
research done by Watters. For
the 2005 show, based on the
music of Harry Warren, he lis-
tened to all 450 songs com-
posed by Warren, studied his
biography online and then
shared what he learned on
stage *iach show.
Rehearsals for
the show
occur
wher-


ever there is room. One of the
photos appearing with this arti-
cle was taken at a rehearsal of
the Dum Dee Doo Wahs in
Eric's living room. Magero was
in every show but one. Sym-
phony director Wesley John
Schumacher appeared in sever-
al dance numbers until side-
lined with knee problems. Carl
joined the Dum Dee Doo Wahs
about 2002.
Symphony board members
have traditionally participated
in the show.
Possibly inspired by the trav-
eling theme of his 2003 show,
Eric has taken shows out of
town a few times, going as far as
Naples, where the show was
performed as a benefit for that
city's Child Development
Center, with the travel expenses
underwritten by a Naples bank.
Eric has had so much fun
doing his "friends" shows that
he has also put together shows
to entertain people in nursing
and retirement homes. He re-
cently started a tax-free founda-
tion, Song of Life, to organize a
network of entertainers to per-
form for people in need of
cheer in hospitals, nursing
homes and hospice
centers. A true
Renaissance
man, Eric
has
been
a ,


teacher, financial planner, fund
raiser, board member and most
recently, a song-and-dance
man.
Carl was in the construction
business for years, building
homes all along the Sun Coast
until retiring to become a mem-
ber of the Dum Dee Doo Wahs
to raise money for the sympho-
ny.
Now it is payback time. Vee
Garry-Chiulli and her husband
Larry have been searching their
"Vee onVenice" video archives
for pictures of Eric and Carl.
Members of the Venice
Presbyterian Church and its
three choral groups have been
planning and plotting for the
Sept. 6 event for weeks. Venice
Gondolier Sun writer Fran
Valencic searched hundreds of
photos from past shows. Others
searched their memory banks,
all part of a massive collective
effort to honor the Watters
brothers.
"Our cultural, social and per-
sonal lives have
been dou-
bly i


enriched by Eric and Carl, two
very remarkable brothers,
whom we have been most privi-
leged to know." Vee Garry-
Chiulli and Larry Chiulli said.
"We are always totally amazed
by the versatile talents of our
song and dance man Eric, and
have always been impressed by
his smiling, sweet, hard-work-
ing brother Carl. Our town has
been blessed indeed with their
presence among us.
If Ed Sullivan were still alive,
he would most like refer to this
tribute as a "really big show
(shoe)!"
Tickets are $25 per person.
The show will be at 7 p.m.,
Saturday, Sept. 6, at the Venice
Theatre, 140 W Tampa Ave. Call
the theater's box office at 488-
1115 or the church office at 488-
2258 for tickets.

Make-A-Wish grants wish for a splash zone pad


FROM MAKE-A-WISH
FOUNDATION
The local Make-A-Wish
Foundation, with the help
of Adventure Pools and
Dave Campbell, in late
August granted the wish of
Miranda, a 12-year-old girl
in Sarasota County who
suffers from a life-threat-
ening medical condition.
She wished to have a
Splash Zone Park, kind of
like a mini-water park, in
her backyard. This wish
was fulfilled Aug. 30 with a
"wish reveal" party in her
backyard.
Miranda suffers from a
chromosome abnormality.
She is also blind and autis-
tic. Her 14-year-old broth-
er Brandon also is a Wish
Kid and had his wish to go
to Disney granted in 2006.
He suffers from the same
medical condition.
The Make-A-Wish Foun-
dation in the Suncoast
Region grants the wishes of
children with life-threat-
ening medical conditions.
A "wish" is created solely
through the imagination
of the child. A trained vol-
unteer wish team visits the
child and asks simply: "If
you could have one wish,
what would it be?" It is
very important for the
wish to be the child's, and
Wish Granters work with
the child and the parents
to ensure the child's real
wish is found.
On average, one wish
costs $7,000. Wishes like
Miranda's are made possi-
ble with the help of gener-
ous donors and more than


InStride

AARP Services, HearUSA


to provide hearing care


program for AARP members


FROM HEARUSA

AARP Services and
HearUSA, one of the
nation's largest hearing
care providers, recently
announced a new relation-
ship to supply unique hear-
ing care solutions designed
to meet the needs of
AARP's diverse 39 million-
plus members.
According to the Better
Hearing Institute, more
than 31 million Americans
are hearing impaired,
including 10 million baby
boomers, yet research
indicates only 20 percent
of those affected seek
treatment. A recent AARP
member survey found that
approximately 6 million
AARP members reported
hearing loss.
"Hearing loss is a grow-
ing, cross-generational
health issue affecting peo-
ple of all ages," said John
Wider, executive vice presi-
dent of AARP Services Inc.
"This innovative relation-
ship with HearUSA will
give AARP members access
to a specialized hearing
wellness program that
focuses on education and
quality of care."
Through the HearUSA
relationship, AARP mem-
bers will have a choice of
specialized hearing care
solutions with flexible
product features along
with access to thousands
of hearing care profession-
als, including audiologists
and hearing instrument
specialists.


ABOUT AARP SERVICES
AARP Services Inc., founded in 1999, is a wholly
owned subsidiary of AARP It manages the wide range
of products and services that are offered as benefits
to AARP members.

ABOUT HEARUSA
HearUSA Inc. is a joint commission accredited health-
care organization that provides hearing care through
more than 1,900 affiliated providers and more than
190 company-owned hearing care centers.


The new hearing pro-
gram will include unique
features for AARP mem-
bers including state-of-
the-art technologies, an
extended warranty, bat-
tery supplies, aural reha-
bilitation as well as on-
going consultation with
the patient and family, and
a significant savings when
compared to other hear-
ing programs. The new
program and products are
scheduled to become
available beginning in the
fourth quarter of 2008.
AARP Services selected
HearUSA for its demon-
strated commitment to
improving both the quality
and the process by which
hearing care is delivered.
AARP members who par-
ticipate in the program
will receive hearing care
services from HearUSA's
large network of hearing
care professionals and
best in class hearing aid
technology, education and
follow-up care.
"HearUSA's vision to
make hearing care a med-
ical necessity reflects a cul-


Increasing
flexibility may not
strengthen a heart or
lower cholesterol, but it
does have its benefits. Each
joint has a natural limit to its
mobility. A joint that is forced
beyond its normal range of
motion will place abnormal stress
on tissues. When excessive force
strains ligaments, a "sprain" is
produced. When muscles and
tendons are stressed and stretched,
the injury is called a "strain."At the
same time, when muscles become
stronger, they tend to become
shorter. Tendons, too, get stiffer as
they get shorter, which is why
exercise can make a person stiff.
The good news is that stretching
counteracts this stiffening effect,
and chiropractic manipulation
loosens the hold that muscles
exert on joints, increasing range
of motion.


tural fit with AARP's com-
mitment to ensuring the
health and well-being for
our members," said David
Mathis, AARP Service's
new senior vice president
of health products and
services.
"Hearing aids today are
much smaller and more
comfortable than ever
before," said Dr. Cindy
Beyer, audiologist and
senior vice president of
HearUSA. "These new
products can be very effec-
tive in helping people enjoy
improved communica-
tions with family and
friends, while meeting the
high demands of a busy,
active lifestyle. Thanks to
advanced technology, con-
sumers with most levels of
hearing loss can maximize
their hearing potential."

ASK YOUR
AUDIOLOGIST










Dr. No61 Crosby, Au.D.
Q: Dr. Crosby, what impact
can hearing loss have on an
older person's life?
A: They may become sus-
picious of relatives or friends
who they believe "mumble"
or "don't speak up" on pur-
pose. Hearing loss can cause
older people to become more
isolated and can even put
them in harm's way if they
are unable to respond to
warnings or hear sounds of
impending danger. It is easy
to mistakenly call older peo-
ple confused, unresponsive,
or uncooperative just became
they don't hear well.

FINE WHINES


Gentle on my mind


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

The following stray
thoughts amply illustrate
why it's rarely a good idea
to have that last piece of
pizza right before going to
bed.
Why is it that in certain
"classy" magazines you
have to wade through
pages and pages of ads
even to get to the index? In
the September issue of
Esquire, for example, the
index is on page 35. Would
it be possible to put a note
on the cover about where
to find the index so I can
skip over all the stuff that
keeps me from doing what
I buy a magazine for -
reading it?
How long will it be
before Hollywood will
start advertising movies
before they're made, to see
if it's worth bothering to
make them? I saw an ad
the other day for "The


Curious Case of Benjamin
Button," starring Brad Pitt.
It opens on Christmas Day.
(At least it's this Christ-
mas.)
Am I the only person
who thinks my vehicle
actually is supposed to
cease movement at a stop-
light or stop sign? Florida
allows a right turn on red
- but only after a stop.
Most of the drivers I see
out there treat that traffic
signal like a bull does a red
cape. On the rare occasion
someone is pulled over for
a ticket, the excuse usually
is, "But I slowed down." To
which a Venice cop was
known to respond, "If I
started beating you with
my nightstick, would you
want me to stop or slow
down?"
When will it dawn on
people that being told
some place is just "min-
utes from" somewhere
else, or just "minutes
away" from somewhere is


meaningless? Who among
us hasn't spent the better
part of an hour looking for
a place supposedly only
minutes away? But you can't
complain, because it's true
- everywhere is only min-
utes from everywhere else.
It may be a lot of minutes
from here to the moon, for
example, but you can still
measure it in minutes.
Similarly, when will
people stop promoting
their business as "Es-
tablished since 1995" or
some such thing? That
could mean yesterday,
which is a point in time
since 1995. If you really
want to impress people,
say "Established since the
dawn of time." It's just as
accurate.
When will I run out of
good ideas for these
columns? Popular opinion
is that it happened about a
year ago.

DEAR ABBY
COLUMNIST


DEAR ABBY: My son is
the recipient of a four-year
college scholarship with
full tuition. He selected
and applied to this school.
The problem is, he now
wants to transfer to anoth-
er college. This means he
would finish his sopho-
more year and give up two
years of the scholarship.
The reason he has given
us is "a lot of his friends go
there." I have been upset
over this to the point of


Using blogs has some advantages


JUNE CASAGRANDE
A WORD, PLEASE


I'm brilliant at making
predictions. My distin-
guished body of work in-
cludes such forecasts as:
Shares of Advanced Cel-
lular Technologies will sky-
rocket, microwave ovens
will be proven to cause
cancer, hip-hop music is
just a passing fad, no
woman will ever want to
wear thong underwear
and "The Simpsons Mov-
ie" will flop and be the
death knell of the TV
series.
The outcomes went like
this:
Advanced Cellular
made headlines for pio-
neering an innovative way
to pursue stem cell re-
search without destroying
embryonic cells right
before plummeting about
90 percent per share.
Microwaves are in
every home.
Hip-hop music throbs
at every red light.
Half the women in
America are walking
around with voluntary
wedgies.
And "The Simpsons
Movie" pulled down $74
million within days of
release and would eventu-
ally total more than $235
million worldwide.
So as you can see, I am
indeed brilliant at making
predictions brilliantly
bad.
That's why you can for-
give me for waiting so long
to jump on the blogging
bandwagon. My initial
prediction that nobody
wants to read John Q.
Public's ruminations on
gas prices and Donald
Trump's hair didn't pan


out. So it took me a while
to get on the blog train.
But eventually I jumped
on board. Now I can see
the perks.
Sure, I have yet to earn
enough for a latte and a
scone (both of which I pre-
dicted would be long gone
by 2002), but at least I don't
have to fulfill a minimum
word count as if I were
writing for the newspaper.
As such, I can post little
observations, lessons and
tidbits as I think of them,
and not have to worry
about whether readers will
stand for a transparently
contrived premise about
my predictive abilities or
an inorganic transition to a
grammar topic.
Here are just some of
the tidbits this format has
allowed me to pass on at
my blog (www.Conjugate
Visits.blogspot.com).
"Reign in" and "give free
reign" are common mis-
takes of people who mean
to write "rein in" and "give
free rein." Both expres-
sions refer to a horse's
reins.
To rein someone in
means to get him or her
under control, similar to
pulling on a horse's reins.
To give free rein means to
let someone run wild. In
both cases, you could
insert the word "reign"
instead, if that's truly what
you meant. But, 99 times
out of 100, the one with the
"g" is an error.


Another tidbit that some people still haven't
came up in the blogos- gotten the memo. So here
phere lately has come up it is again: There is no rule
in this column multiple
times. But apparently Please see WORD, 8B

Keeping loved ones' legacies alive


FROM NAPSA

Throughout history, people have
sought ways to honor lost loved ones.
People who lose a loved one often find
solace in attending memorial services
where they can share their grief- as well
as stories and experiences with fellow
mourners.
Today, however, an increasing number
of people are also finding fellowship and
emotional comfort on the Internet, where
online memorials are proving a popular
new way to commemorate and remem-
ber those who have passed.
While travel time and costs can make it
difficult for everyone to attend a funeral
service, online memorials enable sur-
vivors to honor their loved ones in com-
pletely customized, highly personal ways
and to share these legacies instantly with
friends and family around the world.
Borrowing from the interactive appeal
of social networking sites such as My-
Space and Facebook, Web-based memo-
rialization portals such as Legacycom
enable users to combine biographical
information with cherished photographs,
and even video and audio clips, in unique
ways to honor and remember those who
have passed.
Such sites allow visitors to log condo-
lences, thoughts and memories into on-
line Guest Books.
The sites provide a place where people


going through one of life's most difficult
experiences can come to celebrate the
lives of their loved ones, share their
thoughts, find comfort and begin to heal.
Toward that end, some sites feature a
rich assortment of expert advice from
leading educators, authors, grief coun-
selors and psychologists on topics related
to grief and loss.
Visitors can also share experiences or
seek and offer support through commu-
nity discussions and message boards.
Other features of the top online
memorialization sites include:
Searchable obituaries enabling peo-
ple to find news of lost loved ones via
online databases of recorded deaths.
Customized e-mail alerts that auto-
matically notify users of the deaths of for-
mer friends, colleagues and associates.
Links to funeral home Web sites,
charities and organizations where visitors
can easily make memorial donations.
Celebrity tributes including timely
information about the deaths of movie
and TV stars, public officials, and busi-
ness, philanthropic and civic leaders.
Special memorials honoring the lives
of those lost during events that affected
the entire country, such as the wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan, 9/11 and the tragic
shootings at Virginia Tech and Northern
Illinois University.

Legacycom.

reaching conspiracy ....

spinning out of control.

WORD from Page 7B

prohibiting the so-called
split infinitive. Indeed, a
lot of experts say that the
"to" isn't even really part of
the infinitive, so a term like
"to go" isn't a single unit
and therefore can't be split
if you stick a word like
"boldly" in the middle.
Here are just some ex-
perts I cited.

DEAR LONELY GIRL:
Because you have already
tried getting through to
your father, ask your moth-
er to talk to him about his
priorities. Perhaps another
adult can help him under-
stand that spending time
with you is more impor-
tant than hanging with his
buddies.
Believe me, you have
my sympathy. When fath-
ers were handed out, you
got one who doesn't un-
derstand the responsibili-
ties that go along with
being a parent. It is very
important that you recog-
nize that this in no way is a
reflection on YOU.
If, after your mother
speaks to your dad, he still
doesn't see the light, then
rather than brood, try fill-
ing your time with other
things such as Girl Scout-
ing, sports, hobbies and
church youth activities. In
the end, the loss will be
your father's because these
are important years that
he will never be able to get
back or do over again.

COLUMNIST


The South County YMCA
held its seventh annual
Hawaiian Luau on Saturday,
Aug. 22. This poolside event
is one of the major fundrais-
ers held each year that bene-
fit the YMCA Children and
Family Scholarship Fund.
Fundraising is a priority
because last year the YMCA
provided over $500,000 in
financial assistance to more
than 1,300 people for YMCA
programs.


"This annual 'friendraiser'
event is our way to say thank
you to all of our sponsors
and donors," said Stephanie
Plesz, development coordi-
nator for the Venice YMCA.
"Close to 500 people attend-
ed, and this year over 50
sponsors contributed to the
success of the luau, helping
to raise $12,000."
"This is aVenice commu-
nity coming together event
to lift spirits, especially
needed during these times,"
said Ken Modzelewski, pres-
ident, Venice YMCA.
Eleven local restaurants
brought samplings of their
fare and eight businesses and
organizations sponsored tiki
huts. Music was provided by
DJ Jay Goodley and Venice's
own legendary musicians
The Cryin' Shames.
"I was in Robbi's Reef
Restaurant and that's where
I got my ticket," said Debby
Mazeika. Mazeika was mak-
ing her way to Robbi's food


tent to sample the seafood
pot pie.
"We were happy to partic-
ipate. Everyone did a nice
job and the (YMCA) staff
was absolutely wonderful,"
said Robbi Sierra, owner of
Robbi's Reef Restaurant.
"Fabulous event. The
weather held up and it
looked like everyone had a
good time," said Rob
Arbuckle, owner of Left
Coast Seafood. "It's always
good to contribute to the
community."
The Sweetbay Super-
market on Jacaranda Boule-
vard brought what looked
like an 18-wheeler full of
watermelons and fresh fruit
for their tropical display.
Amore's, Bogey's Sports
Pub, Bushido Sushi Bar and
Japanese Cuisine, Caf6
Venice, The Crow's Nest,
Cuppy's Coffee, Smoothies
& More, Gold Rush BBQ
and Sharky's on the Pier
also provided samples from


their menus.
The eight tiki huts pro-
vided a variety of drinks
and frozen concoctions.
The Venice Yacht Club col-
lected $1,017 in tips and
was crowned this year's tiki
hut champions. Also vying
for the award were Florida
Shores Bank, Hill & Hill
Plumbing, Key Agency
Inc., SunTrust Bank, and
Wachovia Securities.
Women's Sertoma gal'd
their Flamingo Bar inside
the new wing of the Y. With
tables and comfy seating,
this made the perfect spot to
cool off, rest up for another
round of table hopping or
gather during the brief rain.
"It's a great night," said
Eva Sherer, wellness direc-
tor for the Englewood
YMCA. "It's fabulous."
This was Greg Fisher's
first time to the YMCA
Hawaiian Luau. "This is the
most people I've seen out in
Venice after 8," joked Fisher.

and drink during the YMCA Hawaiian Luau.

Deleon served shrimp ceviche and black bean cakes for

Permit Application No.
SAJ-2008-2594-(IP-MGH)
TO WHOM IT MAY CON-
CERN: This district has
received an application for
a Department of the Army

APPLICANT: Peace River
Manasota Regional Water
Supply Authority
6311 Atrium Drive, Suite

Bradenton, Florida 34202
WATERWAY & LOCATION:
The linear project is locat-
ed in waters of the United
States, i.e. connected to
the Peace River. The pro-
ject is located east of Inter-
state 75 (175) in Sections
5, 6, 21, 27, and 28,
Township 40 South, Range
23 East (Segments 1 and

PROJECT PURPOSE:
Basic: Installation of a
water supply pipeline.
Overall: Installation of
approximately twelve (12)
miles of a 24-inch diameter
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


28 NOTICE OF PERMIT

(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
in nature. The applicant is
avoiding 0.75 acres of
jurisdictional wetlands.
Compensatory Mitigation:
The applicant has provided
the following explanation
why compensatory mitiga-
tion should not be
required:
The applicant proposes no
mitigation for the surface
water impacts to man-
made, upland cut roadside
swales that convey
stormwater runoff; these
impacts are considered
temporary and will be
restored to pre-construc-
tion grades. In addition, no
mitigation is proposed for
surface water impacts to
the Peace River; these
impacts are considered
temporary and the river
substrate will be replaced
as construction is complet-
ed.
EXISTING CONDITIONS:
The approximate +72.75
acre project area consists
primarily of existing upland
cut roadside swales and
disturbed lands within
existing rights-of-way. The
swales, which are frequent-
ly mowed and maintained,
vary in physical character-
istics including width and
depth. The vegetative com-
position typically includes
pickerelweed (Pontederia
cordata), smartweed (Poly-
gonum hydropiperoides),
red ludwigia (Ludwidgia
repens), cattails (Typha
sp.), and pennywort
(Hydrocotyle umbellate).
The route also includes
approximately 1.52 miles
of navigable waters of the
Peace River. A benthic sur-
vey conducted on June 13,
2008 concluded that the
benthic community con-
sisted mainly of sand and
fine silt. Wigeongrass (Rup-
pia maritime) was
observed in one area with-
in the project area.
ENDANGERED SPECIES:
The U.S Army Corps of
Engineers (Corps) has
determined the proposal
may affect, but is not likely
to adversely affect the
wood stork (Mycteria
americana), Florida scrub-
jay (Aphelocoma
coerulescens), eastern
indigo snake (Drymarchon
corals couperi), and West
Indian manatee (Trichechus
manatus)and the Small-
tooth sawfish (Pristis pecti-
nata)or its designated criti-
cal habitat. The Corps will
request Fish and Wildlife's
and National Marine Fish-
Series Service's concur-
rence with this determina-
tion pursuant to Section 7
of the Endangered Species
Act by separate letter.
ESSENTIAL FISH HABITAT
(EFH): This notice initiates
consultation with the
National Marine Fisheries
Service on EFH as required
by the Magnuson-Stevens
Fishery Conservation and
Management Act 1996.
Our initial determination is
that the proposed action
would not have a substan-
tial adverse impact on EFH
or Federally managed fish-
eries in the Gulf of Mexico.
Our final determination rel-
ative to project impacts
and the need for mitigation
measures is subject to
review by and coordination
with the National Marine
Fisheries Service.
NOTE: This public notice is


being issued based on
information furnished by
the applicant. This infor-
mation has not been veri-
fied. The jurisdictional line
has not been verified by
Corps personnel.
AUTHORIZATION FROM
OTHER AGENCIES: Water
Quality Certification may
be required from the Flori-
da Department of Environ-
mental Protection and/or
one of the state Water
Management Districts.

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches never get old


he other day as I was
listening to the radio a
woman and a talk
show host were having a
conversation about healthy
lunches for children, and
what you should put in
their lunchboxes. The
woman was explaining that
children crave change and
want to have different
things to eat.
I thought back to when I
was in kindergarten. My
mom made me a scrambled
egg sandwich everyday for
lunch. She'd cook the egg,
put it on white bread and
add a little bit of ketchup,
wrap in plastic and put it in
a paper bag where it would


Jennifer
Wadsworth
Feeling Fit Editor
sit for several
hours before I
ate it for
lunch.
I don't know if it's very
good to have an egg sand-
wich sit unrefrigerated for
an extended period of time,
but it didn't kill me. In fact,
I insisted that I have that
same lunch day after day.
It's the same with my own
children, except its not
scrambled egg sandwiches
that they crave. It is peanut
butter and jelly that they
demand. I try to suggest


&t ts ,- do- rh t b &, u W W 4a
au d uh111111110q~ w


other lunches cheese
sandwiches, different lunch
meats, all are refused in
favor of that staple of child-
hood foods.
My oldest son, who is in
first grade this year, buys
lunch about twice a week.
The other three days his
Speed Racer lunch box sits
out at room temperature. I
don't send yogurt or lunch
meat because they might
spoil and make him sick. I
stick to applesauce, cheese
crackers or trail mix, and
the "main course" is always
the same: PB&J. (I try to
remember to put the little
frozen truck in his lunch -
it's supposed to help keep


his juice and such cold, but
it's not the same as being in
the fridge.)
I have more options for
my two younger children
who go to preschool. They
can have their lunch heated
up in the microwave, so I
can send them to school
with leftovers or pasta. Plus,
their lunch box goes into
the refrigerator all day, so I
can give them yogurt or car-
rot sticks.
If I do send them with
something different I always
get the same response.
When I pick them up they
say, "Mommy, can I have
peanut butter and jelly
tomorrow?"

Dear Dr. Joan: My sister, who
lives in another state says she
and her family go to a family
therapist. You often mention
going to a family therapist, too.
What's the difference between
a family therapist and a regu-
lar therapist?

That's a good question. I
imagine others would like to
know that, too. A "regular"
therapist is one who sees one
client individually. While a
family therapist might see
folks individually, the mindset
may be a bit different. Family
therapists usually think of
their clients as a member of
their original family, work
team, community and family
of procreation. Each of these
groups influence the person in
a powerful way.
Ordinarily, when a person
goes to a "regular" therapist,
the problem which is present-
ed is the issue that is worked
on, for instance, a person with
low self-esteem. Someone
having difficulty parenting is
helped to practice the latest
methods in child-rearing.
As you can see, it is a simple,
clear-cut way to deal with life's
transitions. However, during
the 1950s, people in the men-
tal-health field began to look
at the other significant players
in a person's life. One of the
reasons this happened was
that after "visiting day" in psy-
chiatric units, the patients
often had a really difficult
time. Practitioners wanted to
understand why.
Some of the people working
in the field interviewed the
parents and siblings of those
in treatment. It was often
found that there were "unwrit-
ten rules" or ways of interact-
ing within the family that were
powerful and specific to this
family. These ways frequently


a. did not trans-
late well to
the outside
world. For a
long time, in
the field, the
Family was
Regarded as
ASHKIN, EdD, "the enemy."
ASHKIN, EdD,
LCSW, RN The
interesting
thing about
these "rules"
is that most often they were
"invisible" to the participants.
It takes at least two people
from the family unit to inad-
vertently play out the rules
and an outside viewer one
who doesn't know the family
- to see what is happening.
For instance, it may, at first,
appear as if the son is the
"problem" in the family. Then,
when the rest of the picture
emerges, it may be that mom
and dad can't agree about how
to discipline the boy, and the
siblings don't include him in
their play. Then, with years of
practice in family therapy, it
was discovered that when the
real problem was not resolved
in that generation, it traveled
with the now grown-up child
and popped up in the next
generation.
Some practitioners visit in
the home. Some give assign-
ments. Others work with co-
therapists, or convene groups
of families with similar diffi-
culties. People seem to learn
from all these methods. As a
result, it may be hard to define
exactly what family therapy is
today. However, family thera-
pists assist with the process of
working through the family
difficulties which leads to
greater spontaneity and inti-
macy.


What exactly is


family therapy?

Select group of
orthodontists gather
for seminar
Several orthodontic appli-
ances and techniques devel-
oped by Dr. Michael Alpern of
Port Charlotte were intro-
duced during a three-day
seminar for a select group of
leading practitioners.
The intensive course fea-
tured lectures and demon-
strations on the latest innova-
tions designed to shorten
orthodontic treatment time,
enhance comfort, increase
the stability of straightened
teeth, and improve the
patient's appearance.
Orthodontists from
California, Rhode Island,
Connecticut and Florida trav-
eled to Charlotte County to
examine recent developments
such as A-Squared
Biomechanics. This technique
uses primarily square wires
with a new orthodontic liga-
ture-less bracket system.
Dr. Alpern said his new sys-
tem employs lighter forces
than previously attempted,
yet it allows teeth to move
faster and safer with much
more comfort.
"The end result is less time
in braces, as well as less has-
sle and discomfort for the
patient, since the appliance
does not have to be tightened
on a regular basis as in the
past," he said.
Discussions focused on rev-
olutionary advancements,
including the new clear liga-
ture-less brackets with no
wire ties and nichol titanium
high esthetic wires. This
bracket/wire combination
creates braces that are hardly
visible, Dr. Alpern said,
adding that "treatment time
can be significantly reduced if
the patient will floss every
tooth every night."
Dr. Alpern has also devel-
oped a new in-direct bonding
method that permits more


accurate, secure placement of
braces. He said the technique
also provides the patient a
more comfortable placement
of braces on the teeth and
assists in reducing overall
treatment time.
Exploring improvements in
the fields of children's ortho-
dontics and adult cosmetic
orthodontics, the hands-on
seminar featured presenta-
tions, discussions, demon-
strations and case studies.
With the help of some of Dr.
Alpern's patients, the visiting
orthodontists were provided
several opportunities to
observe the application of
new methods and to work
with materials in a patient
environment.
Dr. Alpern, who has prac-
ticed orthodontics in
Charlotte County since 1976,
is an internationally recog-
nized orthodontic researcher
and instructor credited with
the development of numer-
ous appliances, techniques
and procedures.

September 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 experi-
encing high blood usage at
the same time that blood sup-
plies locally, and nationally,
are extremely low. If supplies
are not replenished it can
lead to postponement of criti-
cal medical treatments so the
Blood Center is pleading for
all eligible 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 par-
ticipate for our September
blood drive to help reach our


goal of providing 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.
For more information on
how you can help, or to sign
up for a blood donation time,
contact the church office at
639-0001 during normal busi-
ness hours, 9 a.m. to 4:30
p.m., Monday through Friday
or contact George Scheer at

but holding a golf tourna-
ment or organizing an event
is often beyond the scope of
what the average person can
do until now.
The St. Vincent de Paul
Community Health Clinic's
"Circle of Friends" campaign
is simply a way for people to
help the community clinic
meet its operating needs and
provide the community resi-
dents with the necessary pre-
scription medications and
health care that they need.
According to Executive
Director Jim Sidbury, "Each
day people go without med-
ical care because they don't
have health insurance and
they can't afford a doctor's
visit, diagnostic testing, or
prescription medicine.
These low income, working
families are being forced to
choose between medical care
and other basic necessities,
such as food, clothing, and
rent.
Our goal is to protect and


improve the lives of those
who need it the most--vul-
nerable populations, the
underserved, and the eco-
nomically disadvantaged".
St. Vincent de Paul
Community Health Clinic is
offering the community the
opportunity to become a
founding member of the
"Circle of Friends", a group of
people who understand the
concept that a small amount,
given consistently by many
people, can accomplish great
things! The healthcare clinic
is looking for a group of 100
friends who are willing to
give $25 or more a month.
The "Circle of Friends" will
be recognized in the Clinic's
quarterly newsletter and will
receive a year end tax
receipt.

Friends" campaign, please

New Emergency Care Center is operating


By JENNIFER WADSWORTH
FEELING Frr EDITOR
The official grand opening
of the new Emergency Care
Center in Punta Gorda will
take place at 5 p.m.,
September 9, and Gary
McClelland, Emergency
Services Department director


at Charlotte
Regional Medical
Center, has a lot to
be proud about.
But, what is at the
top of that list? Is
it the spacious
rooms? The new
equipment?
"The wait time
is quite minimal,"
McClelland said.
"Patients get in
quick because of
the expanded bed
capacity."
That capacity
has grown from 12
to 20 beds and
even though the
grand opening
hasn't happened
yet, McClelland
says they are "100
percent up and
running."
The permit for
the Emergency
Care Center was
received on June
7, 2007, and now


McCelland says to think
again, "We take care of any
kind of emergency, be it pedi-
atric, cardiac, etc."
They have also added a
decontamination and isola-
tion room, which is a nega-
tive pressure room. It is
equipped with its own shower
and bathroom to contain any

that the construction is com-
plete, Derrell L. Billington,
D.O., Emergency Services
Medical Director, has already
noticed a difference.
"There has been a positive
response from the patients as
well as the staff," Billington
said.
"Staff morale is up because
their jobs are easier,"
McClelland added.
"Everything is more accessi-
ble."
For those who believe that
Charlotte Regional is only for
heart emergencies,


biohazard or
infectious dis-
ease, such as
tuberculosis.
Among the
additional beds,
two are special-
ized trauma
rooms for
increased cardiac
monitoring, plus
additional space
which, according
to McClelland, "is
more advanta-
geous for the
caregivers
because they are
in a bigger set-
ting."
Every room is
capable of cardiac
monitoring,
which means a
caregiver can look
at the monitor in
one room and
check on the
other patients in
the center.


There is also a patient
tracking board at the nurses
station. The large screen can
display everything about a
patient's journey through the
center if they're being
admitted, what tests are
pending, where they are
going and which doctors are
on their case.
The grand opening of the
Emergency Care Center will
begin at 5 p.m. on September
9 and is open to the public.
Charlotte Regional Medical
Center is located at 809 E.
Marion Ave., in Punta Gorda.

Wise answers to old wives' tales


By BEN CRAMER
EXCERPTED FROM PREVENTION
Does reading in low light
really hurt your eyes? How
about sitting too close to the
TV? (No, and no.) Why are you
better off drinking exactly
eight glasses of water per day?
(You're not.)
Thanks to quack culture,
the Internet, and well-inten-
tioned but poorly informed
relatives, it's become harder
than ever to separate fact
from fiction. Whatever its ori-
gin, misleading health infor-
mation can cause unneces-
sary anxiety and distract you
from wellness habits that
truly deserve your energy and
attention. Here's a dissection


of six watercooler myths that
will give you all the authority
you need to refute your
brother's latest forwarded e-
mails.
It's safe to follow the 5-sec-
ond rule"for food dropped on
the floor.
Verdict: FICTION. It's
probably not even safe to fol-
low a 1-second rule: The
transfer of bacteria from a
contaminated surface to food
is almost instantaneous or,
at the very least, quicker than
your reflexes. In a recent
study, Clemson University
food scientist Paul Dawson,
PhD, and students contami-
nated several surfaces
(ceramic tile, wood flooring,


and carpet) with Salmonella.
They then dropped pieces of
bologna and slices of bread
on the surfaces for as little as
5 seconds and as long as 60
seconds. After just 5 seconds,
both food types had already
picked up as many as 1,800
bacteria (more bad bugs
adhered to the moisture-rich
bologna than the bread); after
a full minute, it was up to 10
times that amount.
Bottom Line: There are 76
million cases of foodborne ill-
ness annually in the United
States, according to the CDC
- so unless you're the only
family on the block that ster-
ilizes their floors on an hourly
basis, you should refrain from


eating dropped food. "Let's
not forget what comes into
contact with floors people
bring animal feces on their
shoes into their homes,"
Dawson says. And don't
assume that countertops are
clean. Dawson's team also
found that the Salmonella
actually survived as long as 4
weeks on the test surfaces. As
the recent tomato-related ill-
nesses nationwide showed,
"raw fruits and vegetables are
as frequently the perpetrators
of Salmonella transfer as
poultry," Dawson says.
Cracking your knuckles
can cause arthritis.
Verdict: FICTION. If you're
suffering from osteoarthritis


in your hands, it certainly has
nothing to do with this ner-
vous tic. One study at the for-
mer Mount Carmel Mercy
Hospital in Detroit compared
74 people (age 45 and older)
who had been chronic knuck-
le crackers for decades with
226 who always left their
hands alone; researchers
found no difference in the
incidence of osteoarthritis
between the two groups. But
there are reasons to stop this
annoying habit: The same
study found knuckle crackers
to be far more likely to have
weaker grip strength and
greater hand swelling, both of
which can limit dexterity. As
for osteoarthritis, that's more
likely due to genetics and
increasing age.
Bottom Line: Try turning
your nervous energy into a
less harmful habit that occu-
pies your hands (such as doo-
dling). If a different activity
doesn't get you to stop, try
putting a large rubber band
around your wrist and every
time you catch yourself crack-
ing your knuckles, pull it back
and let it snap as a reminder
that your habit really can be
harmful. Most important, get
to the bottom of what's caus-
ing your nervousness in the
first place you may crack
your knuckles more often at
work than at home, for exam-
ple and address those
sources directly


Don't let foot


pain stop you

Helping our community bridge the gap between
smart nutrition and modern medicine

Alternative medicine takes on stations


Many patients reluctant
to take prescription choles-
terol medications seek nat-
ural alternatives. A Mayo
Clinic study published in
July set out to compare the
lipid-lowering effects of an
alternative regimen with a
standard dose of prescrip-
tion cholesterol medicine.
Two groups were followed


for 12 weeks. Both groups
contained people with
high cholesterol and car-
diac risk factors but no
known heart disease. At the
end of the study,
researchers concluded that
the alternative regimen
was just as effective as the
station in lowering bad cho-
lesterol.


citizens for more than 20 years. Harbour

rental assisted living community offering

+ 24 Hour Care
* Personal Service Plans
