A state grant to be matched by the city of Venice will fund the purchase of
the old cement plant properties east of the train depot for conversion into
Legacy Park.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


The Florida Communities
Trust, an agency of the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs, on Thursday agreed to
give the city of Venice $3.7 mil-
lion toward the purchase of a 10-
acre park next to the Venice
Historic Train Depot.
Council Member Ernie Za-
vodnyik, County Commissioner
Nora Patterson and Rep. Doug
Holder spoke on behalf of the
project before the trust's govern-
ing board.
"It went well," Zvodnyik said
of the afternoon presentation. "I
concentrated on five aspects:
public support for the project,
land-use conflict, it being an old
cement facility in a residential
area, its adjacency to other parks
and how it benefits the Grove
Terrace area. Commissioner
Patterson talked about the syn-
ergy of the project being near
SCAT at the Venice depot and
Legacy Trail trailhead."
In May the city submitted its
grant proposal for Legacy Park.
Concept plans included a bocce
ball court, nature trail and kayak
and boat ramp. A solar array was
at first discussed, but later
dropped from the proposal.
Doug Hattaway, with the


Trust for Public Lands, helped
broker the deal by assisting the
city in its grant application and
negotiating the property pur-
chase. TPL is a nonprofit land
conservation group that helps
entities like the city of Venice
purchase valuable land re-
sources.
Now that the grant is secured,
Hattaway can finalize negotia-
tions with current property
owner the Waterford Compa-
nies.
City council previously com-
mitted to match the grant to
meet the estimated $7.4 million
purchase price.
That amount, said Hattaway,
"would be enough" to clinch the
deal.
"There is still the possibility
the county may chip in some
money," he said. "We do have
the property under contract
now. The deal is we are the inter-
im buyer. That allows us to take
the land owner out of the equa-
tion. That's the idea. We are not
going to change our mind."
Legacy Park scored near the
top of a list of91 projects consid-
ered. It scored third going into
the trust governing board's
annual selection meeting on
Sept. 4.

An ordinance is in the works that would require a fee to register security alarms in Venice and impose fines after
the second false alarm is called in to the police department call center, shown above.



False alarms could



cost real money


A cost-recovery program could include annual alarm
permit fees and escalating fines for false alarms gen-
erated from residences and businesses.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Nationally, between 95 per-
cent and 98 percent of all calls to
9-1-1 are false alarms, Police
Chief Julie Williams told Venice
City Council at a recent budget
workshop.
Main offenders: faulty fire
alarms and smoke detectors,
vibrations from a jarred window
or door, or the jolt of an air con-
ditioning unit when it goes on or
off. Even cockroaches have been
known to trip motion detectors
- unnecessarily summoning
police to a residence or busi-
ness.
Whether the alarms are called
in by neighbors responding to
an audible alarm or a security
monitoring company like ADT,


it's a major problem, Williams
said.
A burgeoning home and
business security-system mar-
ket, which uses the taxpayer-
funded police force to buoy pri-
vate business, has turned what
was a largely an unregulated
industry into one that cities are
increasingly regulating.
City statistics are hard to
come by, but police officials
know this much: They respond-
ed to false alarms at 407 loca-
tions from July 2007 to July 2008
within the city of Venice. A sig-
nificant number of businesses,
said Williams, generated multi-
ple false alarms. Some generat-
ed more than a dozen calls in a
year.
"Clearly it's a problem," said
Williams. "False alarms are a


tremendous expense and huge
drain on our resources."
She'd like to reduce that num-
ber, thereby making more police
officers available "to better serve
the city."
And the problem is growing
now that mobile and personal
hand-held alarms have entered
the market.
The answer, she said, is for
city council to adopt an ordi-
nance based on a model crafted
by the Florida Police Chiefs
Association.
Many Florida cities and
counties have already adopted
the ordinance, according to
FPCA.
Nationwide, some cities have
reduced their false alarm rate by
up to 90 percent, improving
police response times to other
types of calls and saving millions
in the process.
Program results are most dra-
matic in major population cen-

GRAPHIC COURTESY OF NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER
The presence of three tropical systems churning in the Atlantic brings
back unpleasant memories of 2005, with 28 storms, including 17 that
formed on or after Sept. 1.


After a few relatively quiet months, storm systems
seem to be churning up the tropics.


BY PAMELA STAIK
STAFF WRITER

First there was Tropical Storm
Fay, which dumped flooding
rains across the Southeastern
United States.
Then there was Hurricane
Gustav, which sent millions of
Gulf Coast residents who feared
a repeat performance of
Hurricane Katrina to higher
ground.
And now residents are play-
ing a wait-and-see game as the
triple threat of Hanna, Ike and
Josephine meander through the
Atlantic Ocean.
With such an active hurricane
season, residents are left won-
dering what is going on in the
tropics.


The simple answer: It's peak
storm season.
According to Dennis Feltgen,
a spokesperson for the National
Hurricane Center, the statistical
peak of hurricane season is Sept.
10, which happens to be next
Wednesday.
The season typically runs
from June 1 through Nov. 30,
with a peak time of storm devel-
opment between mid-August
through the end of October.
"These storms normally
come off the coast of Africa, with
about one wave every two to
three days," Feltgen said. "If the
environment is right for the
storms to develop, meaning
there is the right kind of wind
shear and warm sea surface
temperatures, they will devel-


op."
Of those tropical waves com-
ing off the African coast, he said
one out of every nine or 10
develops into a storm.
So seeing the back-to-back
tropical storm activity is not sur-
prising to Feltgen.
"These are about right for this
part of the season," he said.
"There is nothing unusual
there."
However, he said it is unques-
tionable that this is a highly
active season, as was predicted
by the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration's
Climate Prediction Center.

Every May, NOAA releases a
hurricane season prediction,

Pickens' plan would help environment


BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

Most of us have seen the
television spots where T.
Boone Pickens, noted oil
industry maverick who has
made billions of dollars in
the oil business, outlines a
plan wherebyAmerica must
implement an energy poli-
cy that would include alter-
native energy sources so the
U.S. can reduce its depen-
dence on imported oil.
This year the U.S. will
import 70 percent of its
petroleum requirements.


This amounts to $700 billion.
Reading PickensPlan.
com, Mr. Pickens points
out there are significant
natural gas supplies, and
we should begin convert-
ing automobiles and trucks
from gasoline and diesel
fuel to natural gas. This fuel
would serve as the bridge
that would ultimately get
us to electrical and fuel-
cell-powered vehicles.
According to NGV
America, there are 7 mil-
lion NG-powered vehicles
in the world. Only 150,000
of those are in the U.S.


To take advantage of the
prevailing winds in the cen-
tral United States, Pickens
proposes enough wind
generators be constructed
to produce 20 percent of
our electricity. To get the
plan started, Mesa Power,
Pickens' company, is cur-
rently building the largest
wind farm in the world. The


project is located in the
Texas panhandle near the
small town of Pampa.
The U.S. has less than 5
percent of the world pop-
ulation, while we con-
sume 25 percent of its oil.
We can't keep skipping
down this road.
The planet it's worth
saving.

for the United States antic-
ipate another 58 million
people by 2025. That
means inevitable growth
in our consumption of
water, food, energy and
other supplies.
Unless we change the
design of new communi-
ties, the prospect is
alarming.
But it doesn't have to
be. And, if you're in the
vicinity of the Kimal
Activities Center (Jackson
Road off East Venice
Avenue) on Sept. 11, you
can see for yourself how
some people have figured
out how to cope with the
situation.
Sarasota County and
the state Department of
Environmental Protection


are putting on a one-day
workshop on renewable
energy next Wednesday. A
Venice builder who has
put up a handful of zero-
energy homes will be
among the participants.
The two sponsors consid-
er his approach one way
out of a potential national
predicament.
"It's called the renewable
energy community con-
cept," said Nina Powers,
who heads the county's
sustainability effort. "It's
about advocating a way to
reinvent communities to
meet untapped consumer
needs for shelter and
transportation with mini-
mal impacts on the envi-
ronment and stable ener-
gy costs."


No magic
David Schroeders says
his firm could sell more
zero-energy homes in the
area if those interested in
buying could sell their pre-
sent homes.
"There's nothing magi-
cal about the home we
build," he said. "We can
reduce the power load by
half on a home with
upgraded insulation, ener-
gy-saving light bulbs, solar
panels for electricity, treat-
ed windows and walls.
"When we install solar
hot-water systems, the
load is reduced by 70
percent."
He claims that a zero-
energy home costs less to
build than a standard
home built to code.


Mulch ado about median work


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

A program to replace grass with mulch
and other materials on highway medians
in the county begun earlier this year has
been accepted by most residents.
But it appears to have split the Jacaranda
West community, at least temporarily.
Most agree that if the countywide
effort saves money, it is worth the change.
But some fear that it may come too early
for Jacaranda Boulevard.
Grass replacement is scheduled within
the next fewweeks on the boulevard medi-


an. But it could interfere with tree-planti-
ng. New trees to replace others removed by
the county when the intersection at Center
Road and the boulevard was completed
last year are still not in place.
County representatives last May
promised that the plantings would be
completed. But a utility issue first had to
be addressed.
Trees are considered a calming device
against traffic flow on Jacaranda Boulevard
by the community.
Some are concerned that it will cost
much more if the trees are planted after
the mulch has been applied.


'All of the features we
add pay for themselves in
saved energy," he said.
Treated windows add
$3,000 to the cost, or about
$10 a month on a 30-year
mortgage. But they save
more than $10 on the
monthly electric bill,
according to Schroeders.
'"A code-built home
may cost $1,500 a month,
with a $250 electric bill.
Ours costs $1,650 a
month" Schroeders said.
"But there's no electric bill.
As electricity bills rise, so
do your savings."
A 3-year-old initiative
begun by the National
Renewable Energy Lab to
reduce dependence on
fossil fuels has been devel-
oping technologies to link


our homes with vehicles.
Both Powers and
Schroeders foresee new
neighborhoods in this
region whose owner
associations will own
vehicles operating on
batteries recharged by
plugging a cord into a
household outlet.
General Motors Corp. is
hard at work on its first
plug-in hybrid car, the
Chevrolet Volt. The com-
pany expects to have 50
prototypes for testing by
year's end.
They would be able to
travel about 150 miles on a
gallon of gas and at least
40 more on battery power.
Toyota Motor Corp. says it
plans to introduce a simi-
lar model in 2010.


Lifeguards rescue


'Helicopter Frank'


BY JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

A man Sarasota life-
guards identified as "Heli-
copter Frank" was rescued
Sunday a half-mile off the
coast of Nokomis Beach
after his Jet Ski broke down
during a thunderstorm.
Lifeguard Kevin Phillips


responded to a distress call
Frank placed over his cell
phone as Hurricane Gustav
was passing by Sarasota
County. Phillips said the
man could not get his Jet
Ski to start and he was con-
cerned about the increas-
ingly hazardous weather.

oceanic conditions that
help spawn hurricane ac-
tivity.
Gerry Bell, the lead sea-
sonal hurricane forecaster
at the NOAA Climate
Prediction Center, said the
May predictions address-
ed issues such as reduced
wind shear, weaker trade
winds, an active West Af-
rican monsoon system,
the winds coming off of
Africa and warmer-than-
average water in the At-
lantic Ocean.
These conditions, paired
with the predicted above-
normal activity illustrated
early in the season, led the
center to release updated
predictions in August stat-
ing the season will be
stronger than originally
thought, he said.
In May, the outlook
called for 12 to 16 named
storms, including six to
nine hurricanes with two
to five of them being con-
sidered a major storm of
Category 3 or higher. On
average, the Atlantic hurri-
cane season has 11 named
storms, with six becoming
hurricanes two of which
are considered major.
According to Bell,
NOAA is now predicting a
67 percent chance of the
development of 14 to 18
named storms, with seven
to 10 storms expected to
become hurricanes. Three
to six of these hurricanes
could be classified as
major storms.
And while the change in
the predictions is some-
thing that is seen every
year around the season's
peak, Bell said one thing
hasn't changed the need
for preparedness.
"People really need to
have their hurricane safety
and preparedness plans in
place now," he said. 'As we
saw in Gustav, you've only
got a couple of days to get
out, and if you don't have a
plan in place and are run-
ning around, you will be
stuck in traffic. So, have the
plans finalized. If you
don't, do it now."

RESCUE from Page 5A

According to lifeguard
manager J.R. Ayers, strong
lightning storms prevalent
in the area prevented fire
and police rescue boats
from responding. After as-
sessing the situation with
other lifeguards, however,
Ayers and his team deter-
mined it was safe enough
to proceed with the rescue.
Using the lifeguard Jet
Ski as a tow boat, Phillips
retrieved the stranded Jet
Skier and his watercraft,
hauling them back to the
harbor.
"It was a little rough,


there was some lightning in
the area," Phillips said, "but
we got him back safely."
Ayers was unsure of the
man's full name, but said
he knew his first name was
Frank and that he was like-
ly in his late 50s to early
60s. He also said the man
owns a red helicopter that
he often is seen flying over
Casey Key.

but it works well in smaller
municipalities as well.
Preliminary approval
City council warmed to
the idea of a police cost-
recovery program for false
alarms at a meeting last
month, although the level
of fines was only briefly
touched upon.
"Council would be sup-
portive of you and the
Florida chiefs," said Mayor
Ed Martin.
"I like this," said Coun-
cil Member John Sim-
monds. "I don't turn mine
on when I leave because
it's not registered. It's use-
less."

A MODEL FALSE-ALARM ORDINANCE
Key ingredients:
Permit required (typically $25-$50): No person shall use an alarm system with-
out first obtaining a permit for such alarm system from the city or county. A fee may
be required for the initial registration and annual renewals. Each alarm permit shall
be assigned a unique permit number, and the user shall provide the permit number
to the alarm company to facilitate law enforcement dispatch.
Fines: It is hereby found and determined that three or more false alarms within
a permit year is excessive, constitutes a public nuisance, and shall be unlawful. Civil
penalties for false alarms within a permit year may be assessed against an alarm
user as follows:
Third, fourth and fifth false alarm -$50
Sixth and seventh false alarm $100
Eighth and ninth false alarm $250
Tenth and over false alarms $500
Failure to register $100
In lieu of fines: The city or county may create and implement an Alarm User
Awareness Class (and) may grant the option of attending a class in lieu of paying
one assessed fine.
Verification: An alarm company performing monitoring services shall attempt to
verify, by calling the alarm site and/or alarm user by telephone, to determine
whether an alarm signal is valid before requesting dispatch. Telephone verification
shall require, at a minimum that a second call be made to a different number, if the
first attempt fails.

NEIGHBORING JURISDICTIONS
Here's how area cities and counties handle false
alarms:
City of Sarasota adopted its ordinance in 2004.
Includes a renewable permit fee of $35. It treats secu-
rity alarm malfunctions separately from false-alarm
notifications.
Alarm malfunction fines: first offense, $45; second
offense, $120; third offense, $240; fourth and subse-
quent false alarms, $600.
False-alarm notification fines: first through third
receive notifications, fourth through sixth $70; seventh
and subsequent false alarms, $120.
City of North Port has a fine schedule for each
of two six-month periods: first through third false
alarms no charge with written notice; fourth and
beyond, $50 fine.
Sarasota County charges $25 for each response
to a false alarm, regardless of cause, after the first
three responses in a six-month period. A private fire-
alarm-systems code expired Dec. 31, 2003.
Charlotte County has a security alarm ordinance
with an initial registration fee of $25 and renewal fee of
$10. Verification is required of alarm-monitoring com-
panies before contacting law enforcement.
Fine schedule: first and second receive a warning;
third violation, $25; fourth violation, $50; fifth violation,
$75; sixth and subsequent violations are a fine
between $100 and $500 with notice to appear and/or
imprisonment not to exceed 60 days.

medical emergency.
Failing to register an
alarm that has summoned
police has its own conse-
quences a proposed
$100 fine.
It's not designed to be a
punishment, said Wil-
liams.
"It's important to un-
derstand that many resi-
dences have alarms but
aren't using them," she
said. "We don't want to set
off false alarms, but clearly
we want them to use it to
protect themselves and
their property.
"Registering their
alarms will be part of the
program, as well as how to
make sure its working
properly. There will be a


little bit of a learning curse
on the front end" of the
program.
The city already has an
ordinance for false fire
alarms for commercial
properties.
Fire Chief John Reed
said his program is "very
good," but warned "we are
learning that there have
been some cases in which
insurance companies are
trying to sue the city, argu-
ing they've already paid
for that."
"Pay attention to that...
what a lawsuit could cost
the city," Reed said.

Red-light cameras: Lots of money, minimal results


We don't question the good inten-
tions of Sarasota County com-
missioners in their effort to
install cameras to catch motorists run-
ning red lights.
The aim is to improve safety. That's
always a good idea.
After all, who doesn't get angry seeing
someone speeding through an intersec-
tion after the yellow light has flicked to
red? (But less so on those occasions
when we "miscalculate" and do it our-
selves.) Shouldn't we do something
about those people?
The problem is that good intentions
don't always bring good policies. In this
case, the data from years of experience
in other places using red-light cameras
are far from conclusive.
Cameras may decrease accidents,
but they also may increase accidents.
They may reduce serious injuries, but
they may increase injuries in general.
Highway analysts are still debating the
issue.
One thing is certain: The devices will


generate income for camera manufac-
turers, systems operators and county
government, and it will come from
motorists' pockets.
Sarasota County commissioners now
seem set on a course to install cameras
on the 10 worst county intersections,
measured by frequency of crashes.
Since state law forbids these cameras
on state roads, the systems could not be
installed on what probably are the area's
most dangerous intersections, so these
will have to do.
Only one spot is in South County, at
River Road and Winchester Boulevard.
To get an idea of the magnitude of the
problem, that intersection saw seven
right-angle crashes and eight rear-end
crashes in the past five years.
By the county's own estimate, some
18,000 drivers could end up paying $125
fines in the program's first year. That will
bring in $2 million. It will cost half that,
so the extra $1 million goes into county
coffers.
Some $540,000 to $675,000 would


pay for a vendor to run the lights and
send out violations. Sheriff's office
responsibilities would cost another
$220,000 the county estimates two
officers would be needed, at $110,000
per year, to review potential violations
and attend appeals hearings.
In addition, $100,000 would go to the
clerks office, and another $50,000
would be spent on a hearing officer.
In short, a million-dollar industry
would be started, funded by $125 fines.
All this is intended to make the roads
safer. However, as we said, the data is
sketchy.
Most studies show a decrease in T-
bone crashes, which tend to cause the
most serious injuries. But those studies
also often show a larger increase in rear-
end crashes, which tend to cause less-
severe injuries.
Using the River Road-Winchester
Boulevard example, studies indicate
dangerous side-angle crashes might be
expected to drop from seven to four -
perhaps while rear-end crashes


might increase from eight to 12. (The rea-
son is that drivers aware of cameras tend
to slam the brakes on the first sign of yel-
low, causing more rear-end collisions.)
Some will argue that any measure
that decreases the most serious injuries
- or prevents even one highway death
- is worth the cost. Again, though, that
cost could be $2 million for only 10
intersections. If the program is wildly
successful more so than any other
place in this country the income
would drop far below costs.
But it won't. Once started, red-light
programs tend to be self-perpetuating.
A Washington Post study showed the
District of Columbia's program took in
$26 million over six years. Safety argu-
ments continue, even if supporting data
are weak, and the cash-machine
becomes more and more critical to gov-
ernments.
If nothing else, we'd want much bet-
ter evidence of benefits before starting a
new million-dollar industry that, once
started, takes on a life of its own.


Bye, bye, status quo


MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


It's Aug. 31, and today I
am celebrating my dog's
second birthday. It was just
a little over a year ago that
I was blessed with my pal,
companion and sometime
pain in the - but you
know who I'm talking
about: Mr. Maney.
Overall, this year has
not been very pleasant,
and I sum it up with the
old line "if it weren't for
bad luck, I wouldn't have
any luck at all" except
for him.
My thoughts are so
scattered today, looking
out at the blustery weather
and intermittent rain and
increasing winds, wonder-
ing just when and where
Gustav will land.
I don't pay much atten-
tion to the weather fore-
casts because, quite frank-
ly, they're often wrong. I've
made my usual prepara-
tions, though, by filling the
tub with water and my car
with gas.
That's it folks. If worse
comes to worse, we're
heading for the stall show-
er in the center of my
house.
I have broken every rule
of good journalism by
opening this column with
pure pessimism, but stick
with me because finally I
see a flicker of light at the
end of the tunnel Mc-
Cain's choice for his run-
ning mate, the relatively
unknown governor of
Alaska, Sarah Palin.
She is refreshingly open
and a maverick. This "soc-
cer mom" of five children,
doesn't hesitate or equivo-
cate in admitting she's as
pro life as anyone can be.
She is anti-same-sex mar-
riage, a supporter of capi-
tal punishment and a life-
long member of the Na-
tional Rifle Association, as
well as Feminists for Life.
She does not believe
that global warming is


man made, but does be-
lieve we should be drilling
for oil in the Alaska Na-
tional Wildlife Refuge. She
is unabashedly, openly
and proudly a card-carry-
ing conservative.
However, unlike many
tunnel-visioned politi-
cians, she challenged a
corrupt system within her
own party, opposed and
beat Republican Gov.
Murkowski, then beat the
Democrat nominee to
become governor of
Alaska in 2006.
In the days to come, she
will be painted by our pri-
marily liberal media with
the very wide brush of
"inexperience." Obviously,
she does not have the
years of experience of Sen.
Joseph Biden; however,
unlike Barack Obama, she
has run more than her
mouth. As a senator he's
never written a bill, though
he has already written two
memoirs.
She leads a state that
matters to all of us. Alaska
has significant energy re-
sources and she has been a
leader in the fight to make
America energy indepen-
dent. She has actually used
her veto and cut budgetary
spending, and put a stop
to the $400 million "bridge
to nowhere."
As the head of Alaska's
National Guard and as the
mother of a soldier, she
understands what it takes
to lead our nation and she
understands the impor-
tance of sincerely support-
ing our troops with more
than lip service.
You're going to be hear-
ing a lot about the fact that
she was a beauty contest
winner she was first
runner-up in the Miss
Alaska Pageant years ago.
What you are to assume
from that useless bit of
information is that she is a
superficial nitwit. I am
confident she will be able
to rise well above all the
nonsense.
In choosing Gov. Sarah
Palin, John McCain has
put Washington on notice
that he is serious about
shaking up the status quo.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



If that's your biggest problem...


Editor:
I read the item, More mowing, less talk. This made me
laugh since I was the resident who wrote the first one
about Center Road being a slum. Now we are just lazy
and pigs because our grass is too high.
Well, I have more things to worry about than my
grass, like the cutbacks in county government, the cut-
backs in the police and fire departments and, especially,
the cutbacks in education. So again, here is my com-
ment about being lazy pigs or living in a slum: I would
rather live on Center Road than anywhere else.
The people who live here are hard-working, middle-
class people and not snobs who can only complain
about grass. Worry more about the important things in
life than just the height of the grass.

Michael T. Browne
Venice


Englewood SCAT
route is a life line
Editor:
The Sarasota County
commissioners are con-
sidering cutting bus routes
to help fund a new trolley
service for Siesta Key, with
the Englewood bus route
at the top of the chopping
block. We need to get the
word out about this bus
route and have the voices
of our community heard.
Does the Englewood
community know they
have a public bus service?
Sarasota County Area Tran-
sit has a route that goes
through Venice and Eng-
lewood, the Englewood
Loop Route 21.
The bus goes through
Englewood and stops at
libraries, schools, hospi-
tals, the YMCA, shopping
centers, parks and even the
Englewood Sports Com-
plex. It also connects to the
Venice Loop Route 16,
which goes throughout
Venice (including the court-


house).
This route seems to be a
well-kept secret since no
one in Englewood seems
to know about this valu-
able public transportation
service. There has been no
advertisement on this
SCAT route. Even trying to
get a schedule seems a dif-
ficult task. Because of this
secret, typically only four
or five riders utilize it.
With our country in a
severe economic decline
combined with the rising
price of gas, this valuable
service should be shouted
from the rooftops.
Maybe the Siesta Key
trolley service should be
privately funded, since it
will only benefit a handful
of already wealthy busi-
nesses whereas keeping
the Englewood bus route
would benefit a whole
community.

Kicked to the curb and left there

Curbside. Something is wrong with the county trash
pick-up service. In the last five weeks I've had trash left
three times, recycling once, yard waste once and scrap
wood twice. All these were placed at the curb at mid-
night Wednesday night before the pick-up, either in con-
tainers or bundled up and left curbside all day Friday. No
pick-up. And the ironic thing about this is that the recy-
clables, trash and the construction material are still at
the curbside this week.

Why should a few be

many be charged nothing?
It would be more fair for
the whole work force, from

a few taking a 100 percent

Some say aye, some say nay


HERB LEVINE
GUEST COLUMNIST


The Aug. 25 Venice City
Council meeting was an
eye-opener in at least one
major way. Let's call it a
"common thread" that
seems to run through ma-
jor parts of city business,
but mostly through city
business that has to do
with growth.
However, there are lots
of sides of city business
that do not seem to be in-
volved in growth, but most
if not all of them really are.
No one seems to have
any problem equating an-
nexations, sprawl and den-
sity requests with growth as
a direct result of the efforts
of the Growth Gang to
make money. The Growth
Gang and its many, many
minions from consul-
tants right through to the
clerical staff in their own
offices. They all make a
good-to-great living out of
growth while the average
citizen suffers through all
the symptoms that the
problem of growth have
spawned.
The word "growth" be-
comes a little more hazy
when one examines what
has been happening at the
Venice Municipal Airport


until one realizes that that
there just might be anoth-
er Growth Gang at the air-
port different players
but the same thoughts
about growth being pro-
gress, as well as profitable.
And there are also thoughts
about that well-known
trickle- down-while-gush-
ing-upward effect.


No one seems to
have any problem
equating an-
nexations, sprawl
and density re-
quests with
growth as a direct
result of the
efforts of the
Growth Gang to
make money.



Whether it's a new
development, residential
or commercial, near the
outer edges of Venice or
lengthening the runways
or putting in a few dozen
more hangars plus a mari-
na at one end of the air-
port, it is still the Growth
Gang at work. Mostly dif-
ferent players, but still the
Growth Gang at work.
And then there's a park
- Tramonto Vista, to be
exact. Sold to the citizens
of Venice as part of a $10
million bond referendum.
Sold with the promise that
Tramonto Vista Park
would be a passive park


with only four additives.
The project calling for
several toilets, a board-
walk and crossover to the
beach, some parking and
the planting of sea oats in
the sand dunes next to the
park was sold to the cit-
izens of Venice who want-
ed to keep one of the last
pristine beaches on the
West Coast of Florida just
the way it was.
And then along came
another Growth Gang call-
ing themselves the Young
Professionals. Many of
them, led by their men-
tors, showed up at a city
council meeting about
Tramonto Vista and de-
manded many many more
amenities for an active
park. The amenities in-
cluded pavilions, a sound
stage, an area for volley-
ball, swing sets and lots of
parking spaces.
They all claimed to be
from Venice but when
asked for their addresses,
many of them had to leave
on personal business. The
previous council bought
into it and the present
council that had unseated
three pure growth minions
seems to be going in the
same direction.
Maybe they feel that
several million of that ref-
erendum fund is still avail-
able and using it to make
the park more active will
then close the door on
growth. I doubt it. I also
think that in these times,
the extra money should
have been used to pay
down the debt.
One or two common
threads run through all of
the Growth Gangs. The


chamber of commerce is
one. The leader of the
chamber made an impas-
sioned plea to council on
the 26th to "update" the
park in order to help the
business community cope
with drastic times.
He was specific in tell-
ing the exact number of
companies and business
that make up the chamber
members about 1,000
or so in the Venice area
and down to 400 in Venice
itself. He also talked about
the almost large amounts
of money that group
brings to the city. It almost
sounded as if there was
going to be a plea to build
a baseball stadium.
There was no compari-
son made to the number of
citizens, homeowners and
retirees who pay an even
larger share of the total
budget. Nor was there any
mention of the many
amenities that already exist
and attract tourists.
Maybe, just maybe, the
chamber should be work-
ing with its clients to see
how they can help them-
selves instead of spending
all that time working on
council to help its clients.
There is a major differ-
ence between the present
naysayers and the aye-
sayers. The naysayers are
trying to conserve the
beauty and the ambiance
of our city. The aye-sayers
from the chamber leaders
to the Growth Gang want
to make lots of money.
Lots and lots of money.
Whom do you believe?
Herb Levine is president
of the Venice Taxpayers
League.

For al-
1 most three
decades,
he was the
/ / photo edi-

photo editor a couple of
years later. Schmidt was a

Runway 4-22
safe, for now
The safety of one of
Venice Municipal Airport's
two main runways is still
under investigation.
The Venice Airport
Business Association ques-
tioned the safety of run-
way 4-22 at a press confer-
ence in July. Since then
officials from the Federal
Aviation Administration
and Florida Department of
Transportation have sur-
veyed the runway, which
has cracks with high grass
growing in some parts.
There is also a run-up area
(called a "nonstandard
safety area") that has more
severe damage. The report
is pending.
Meanwhile, the city
issued a statement claim-
ing runway 4-22 is safe,
for now.
Alan Bullock, director of
administrative services,
issued a memo to city
council members July 24
regarding liability issues.
"Fortuitously, our main
insurance agent is a pilot
of small aircraft and as
such is ideally positioned
to advise," Bullock wrote.
"In his estimation, al-
though runway 4-22 lies in
the bottom third of Florida
runways in terms of its
condition, he considers it
perfectly safe to use, had
used it several times him-

cil stipulations that
have yet to be enshrined
in the city's comprehen-
sive planning document
or adopted into land use
codes.
As a compromise, the
applicant, Discovery Vil-
lage, recently submitted a
new rezoning petition that
reclaims some of the den-
sity council reduced. The
resubmitted petition is
currently undergoing tech-
nical review before it again
comes before council.
The rezone is from
Sarasota County "open
use" designation to the
city's "residential, multi-
family (RMF-3)" zoning
district. The comp plan
allows moderate density of
between 5 and 13 dwelling
units per acre.
The project was ap-
proved by the planning
commission at 9.6 units
per acre, and later reduced
by council to a maximum
of 7 units per acre.
The difference, say own-
ers, is building 105 units ver-
sus a maximum of 144 units
-a $31 million "problem."

School: Riverview High School (Sarasota)
District: 6A-6
Record: (0-0)
Mascot: Rams
Colors: Maroon and white
Last year
Riverview went 2-1 in district play to cap-
ture the District 6A-6 title and become the
only team in Class 6Ato make the postseason
with a losing record (3-7). The Rams lost to
Orlando Dr. Phillips High School in the
regional quarterfinals.
Riverview moved the ball effectively in
2007 behind running backs Robert Glinton
(884 yards) and Andre Booker (775 yards), but
the defense allowed 333 yards per game.
In their season-opener a year ago,
Riverview fell to Venice 19-14. Indians quar-
terback Trey Burton led the team in rushing
with 87 yards on 22 carries. He went 8-12 for
115 yards and a touchdown through the air.
Booker had a big day against Venice, racking
up 109 yards and a touchdown on nine car-
ries. He also threw for a touchdown.
Last week
The Rams crushed a young, inexperienced
North Port High School team 35-0 last week in
the Kickoff Classic at the Ram Bowl. Riverview
piled up 214 rushing yards on 37 attempts.
Senior running back Ronnie Bright led the
team with 75 yards, including two touchdown
runs, of 21 and 13 yards. Booker added 58
yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Ronnie
Hardison threw touchdown passes of 4 and

The Venice High School volleyball team pounded
Bayshore High School Thursday night in the Teepee
behind solid play from the bench.
Venice (2-0, 2-0 in 5A-12) dominated the Bruins
25-6, 25-12,25-5. Coming off the bench, sophomore
Peyton Herschberger scored six kills, eight digs and
a block. Perhaps more impressive was sophomore
Autumn Duyn's six assists in her first experience as a
setter in game three. But the most impressive num-
bers came from sophomore Lyndsey Cantees, who,
in her first game after being called up from junior
varsity this week, finished with a team-high .750 hit-
ting percentage.
"It was great to get some of our younger kids in to
play," head coach Brian Wheatley said. "It is very dif-
ficult to defeat a team in the way we did. You've got
to play pretty disciplined volleyball ... All these kids
really impressed me tonight."
Venice never trailed and was only tied once in all
three games. Bayshore (0-2, 0-2 in 5A-12) fell behind
1-0 in game three and was able to climb back to 1-1
after a rare unforced Venice error. Venice bounced
back with an 8-2 run and never looked back.
Led by junior Jillian Allen with five, the Indians
served up 18 aces as a team. Despite their youth, the
service has been very aggressive thus far.
"That's definitely one of our assets as a team,"
Wheatley said. "That's your best defense. We stress
that all the time and that's how we beat a lot of
teams."
Venice concludes a three-game streak of district
games Tuesday at North Port High School at 7 p.m.


25 yards and contributed 50 yards on the
ground.
The Rams' defense seems to be much
improved after returning seven starters from
last year's unit. Riverview held North Port to
78 rushing yards on 31 carries in the shutout.
How Riverview can win
The name of the game is possession.
Keeping Burton and Dri Archer off the field
will go a long way in keeping them out of the
end zone.
The offensive line is relatively inexperi-
enced, but the Rams have two powerful backs
in Bright and Booker not to mention a run-
ning quarterback in Hardison.
Cardinal Mooney High School may have
exposed a weakness in the Indians' defensive
line a week ago when running back Stephen
lerulli ran for 145 yards and a touchdown.
Look for Riverview to try and exploit that
weakness with their bruising backs and
speedy quarterback.
How Venice can win
Slow down Riverview's running game.
Hardison, who runs a 4.3-second 40-yard
dash, is a runner first and a passer second.
Despite two touchdowns through the air in
the Kickoff Classic, the Rams don't like to
throw the ball. If the Indians can make
Riverview try to beat them with the pass, the
defense should be able to get just enough
stops to get the ball back into the hands of its
playmakers.
Don't expect Archer to have as big of a
night against a bigger, more physical
Riverview defense. You can, however, expect
to see more production out of Burton that

Swimming opens with tri-meet


STAFF REPORT

The Venice High School boys
swim team opened the season a
little shorthanded Wednesday at
Venice.
There are only eight swimmers
on the team as it is, and one
missed the relay tri-meet with
Riverview and Sarasota high
schools with a foot injury
incurred earlier in the day. As a
result, the Indians were forced to
swim in seven relays with only
seven swimmers.
Freshman Derek Pridemore
and seniors Mark Cox and Tyler
Revels each participated in four
separate relays. Nobody swam in
fewer than three races.
The highlight of the afternoon
was in the first relay of the day.
Pridemore, Dylan Wilson, Cox
and Revels took first in the 200-
yard medley relay after Revels
overtook the anchor from
Sarasota in the final 25 yards of
the race.
Venice finished third behind
Riverview and Sarasota in the
meet.

you saw in the preseason.
Who to watch for
Pay attention, because you might miss
something. Outside of Gainesville, Fla., you
won't see this much speed on the field very
often. Riverview's Hardison and Booker have
both been clocked at 4.3 seconds in the 40-
yard dash; and we already know about Archer
(4.4) and Burton (4.5).
Coachspeak
"They've got one of the strongest team's
I've seen down there," Riverview head foot-
ball coach John Sprague said. "Their quarter-
back is on the Heisman watch as a junior in
high school."
The bottom line
Both teams have exceptional speed and
talent at the skill positions, so this game will
come down to the battle in the trenches. If
runners from either side are allowed into the
secondary, it's sayonara, suckers.
The Indians boast one of the biggest offen-
sive lines in the area, but they will be up
against a more physical defense than they
faced in Cardinal Mooney. Riverview is still
breaking in a green offensive line, but the
Venice defensive line struggled to stop the
run against the Cougars a week ago. This
could be a high-scoring affair.
The Indians offer more balance on offense
with a dynamic passing attack. While the
Venice defense will be able to key in on stop-
ping the run, Riverview will have to deal with
the threat posed by Burton and a stable of
capable receivers.
Tripp's pick: Venice 42, Riverview 30.

Coach Smith

shows newbies

the ropes

BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice High School golfer
Crystal Smith is just as much
coach as player these days.
The senior who won the
District 2A-14 and Region
2A-5 championships last
year is surrounded by begin-
ners. Some of her team-
mates had never heard the
term "hazard" until they met
Smith. As beginners, they're
becoming much more
familiar.
"There's a lot to learn,"
said Smith, who has com-
mitted to play NCAA
Division I golf at the
University of Illinois.
"They're beginners, but
they're coming along."
From green etiquette to
how to set the ball on the tee,
Smith has been there to
teach the newcomers every-
thing they now know.
They're already showing
improvement. Newcomer
Morgan Farrell shaved 18
strokes off her score in just
one week.
"I like teaching the rules,"
Smith said. "Just playing
with them and seeing new
players is awesome."
Smith's group at
Thursday's tri-match with
Sarasota and Lakewood
Ranch high schools finished
a full three holes in front of
the next group. Smith could
get way ahead in practice,
but says it benefits her more
to play with the team.
"It helps me pace myself
... I can't hit shot after shot,"
she said. "You've got to pace
yourself in golf, you can't
rush. It's good for my con-
trol."
She exhibited some of
that control Thursday at
Mission Valley Country Club,

"It bothers me more, not
that the other team played

Venice head coach Marty

Riverview's Brad Knight

Going into the match
with Riverview, Venice had
three players Tim

Dunford shot the low round

Habitat house on Pelican Road.

Habitat builds hope, home by home


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

You can bemoan the
shortage of affordable
housing in the area, or you
can do something about it.
Habitat for Humanity of
South Sarasota County is a
bunch of doers, not talk-
ers.
Need proof? Ask the
more the 40 families living
in their own homes thanks
to the organization's ef-
forts. For many it's the first
time anyone in their fami-
ly has ever owned a home.
For others it's home own-
ership without the crush-
ing debt of a high-interest
mortgage.


SATURDAY'S
SCHEDULE
Volunteers will be apply-
ing the roof sheathing at
424 and 440 Pelican
Road. Work will begin
promptly at 8 a.m.


For all of them it's part
of fulfilling the American
dream, and the culmina-
tion of a process involving
income qualification, class-
es, construction work and
more.
And that's just to earn
the opportunity to buy a
Habitat home (with a no-
interest loan) on which
they are responsible for
property taxes and insur-
ance.

Laurel wreaths
Most recently dreams
came true in Laurel, with
the completion of four
homes on Collins Road. It
was the first time HHSSC
attempted a multi-home
project.
"In the past we've built
one home on one site.
Those houses took approx-
imately nine or more
months to build," said Joe
Dell Penn, Habitat's con-
struction manager. "Here,
with the properties being
contiguous, we've been
able to complete four
homes in the same amount
of time."
Work began in the fall of
2007 and the homes were
dedicated June 21.
The multi-home project
led to the first "sod day," an


all-out effort to landscape
all four homes at once.
Thanks to volunteers from
Publix Supermarkets,
Sharky's On The Pier rest-
aurant, Sarasota Thrivent,
members of area Lutheran
churches, partner families
and "regular" Habitat vol-
unteers, about 55,500
square feet of sod was laid
- in 75 minutes.

Garden Park
Barely two weeks before
dedicating the Collins
Road houses, Habitat
broke ground on its most


ambitious project: Garden
Park, the first multi-family
neighborhood to be built
by HHSSC.
'A garden is place to
grow," said Judith Wilcox,
HHSSC executive director,
"and a park is a pleasant
and healthy place to be.
The name represents our
expectations for this new
complex, which will be
home to 18 local, low-in-
come working families."
Not surprisingly, fi-
nances were a major factor
in the decision to build a
neighborhood rather than


NEED A HOUSE?

HOW YOU CAN HELP
The most visible way to contribute to Habitat is to go on site and swing a ham-
mer. But there are plenty of options for the less mechanically inclined:
Donate money Habitat gets a lot of labor and materials donated, but it still
has to buy land and pay contractors to do work that requires a licensed profession-
al. Money is always welcome.
Donate to the ReStore Habitat's ReStore Home Improvement Center at 1400
Ogden Road accepts donations of new and used building materials such as cabi-
nets, lighting and plumbing fixtures, doors, lumber, flooring and windows. Items must
be in saleable condition. Some materials will be used to build Habitat houses and
the rest will be sold to the public at steep discounts. "Gently used" furniture, appli-
ances, electronics and home decor items are accepted as well.
Volunteer at the ReStore ReStore needs cashier assistants, sales help,
techies, prep help, stock help and "fixer-uppers." Call Brian Dickerson, store director,
493-0529.
Join a committee Habitat committees include church liaison, development,
family selection, finance, governance, family support, public relations, site selection
and refreshments.
Call 493-6606 to get involved. If you want to join a construction crew, ask for
Dena.


just more homes.
"Cost of land was the
driving force to build
multi-family communi-
ties," said Joe Justice, Hab-
itat board president and
longtime volunteer. "We
can put more families in a
community than we can
in single-family lots, tak-
ing in the cost per acre vs.
the cost per single lot. We
will continue building on
single-family lots, but
when an opportunity
comes along to acquire a
large tract of land, we will
do so."
Garden Park will consist
of seven two-story town-
houses and two single-
story duplexes designed

for the disabled. Panel
construction will be used
for quick assembly, higher
insulation value, fewer
mold problems and the
ability to withstand 200
mph winds. It will be the
first time all-metal roofs
will be used.
"Hopefully, this project
will be completed within
18 months of the initial
start of the first town-
house," Della Penna said.
Habitat volunteers are
working on houses on
Pelican Road in South
Venice to make two more
dreams come true soon.
One is a house the staff of
the Gondolier Sun has
adopted as a community


service project. The fami-
lies that will get the houses
are part of the work crews,
too, under Habitat's policy
of contributing "sweat
equity" in order to qualify
for a house.
It's what caring people
do to help Habitat fulfill its
mission: to work in part-
nership with God's people
in need to build afford-
able, safe and decent
housing.

Silence fell on the 16 people
standing on the floating plat-
form as a rush of bubbles pref-
aced three divers ascending
from the waters of Little Salt
Spring.
As they broke the surface and
removed their masks, Rick
Gomez pronounced it a "good
dive."

1 )i ., into the Spring aren't
ni-\\ bit L thanks to a grant from
Lit. N, il in al Geographic
Society, researchers are investi-
gating the 90-foot ledge at Little
Salt Spring for the first time in
30 years. Media were on hand to
learn more about the excava-
tions.
"I've never seen anything like
this," Steve Koski, site manager
at the Spring, said of the
reporters gathered on the plat-
form. Six television stations and
two newspapers were repre-
sented.
The Spring, which sits on a
110-acre site, just off Price
Boulevard near Glenallen
Elementary, was first recog-
nized as an underwater archae-
ological site in the late 1950s,
making it the first 'wet site' dis-
covered in Florida. The
University of Miami has owned
ihr it.e si ihre 1982.
\Alti iLt iniuing to dryland

was 12,000 years ago.
"It's a real time capsule," he
said. "Thirty years ago, they dis-
covered the giant tortoise shell
and wooden stakes circum-
stantial evidence that people
were here. We would like to find
more."
Artifacts discovered in the
Spring so far include knife han-
dles, stone tools, green stone
beads for jewelry, wooden
stakes and remains of animals
including giant sloths, sabre-
tooth tigers and turtles the size
of a Galapagos tortoise.
Artifacts are preserved
because the water's chemistry
and temperature have created a
one-of-a-kind submerged site
- microbes and bacteria can-
not survive there, so decompo-
sition of organic material is
greatly reduced, according to
the university research team.
Paleo-Indian artifacts dating
back 12,000 years have been
excavated some items have
been radiocarbon-dated to
14,000 years among the earli-
est found anywhere in the US.


Nothing uncovered at Little Salt
Spring is younger than 5,500
years old.
The National Geographic
grant of about $24,000 enabled
two three-person dive teams to
descend into the Spring four
times a day through the end of
July. Each dive lasted about an
hour.
"The research proposed by
Dr. Gifford is critical to our
understanding of the first
Americans," said Emily Landis,
a program officer with National
Geographic's Committee for
Research and Exploration. "In
1975, hints of a 12,000 Before
Present occupation were found
on the 27-meter (90-foot) ledge
at Little Salt Spring. If these
early occupation dates are con-
firmed by modern excavation
and laboratory analytical tech-
niques, it would make Little Salt
Spring one of the oldest con-
firmed pre-Clovis sites in the
Americas."
Pre-Clovis refers to anything
older than 12,000 years.
"It's kind of amazing," said
Gomez, a diving safety officer at
the University of Miami, who
makes up one of the dive teams.
"I've been coming to the Spring
for 15 years, and always wanted
to see this kind of stuff going
on. And National Geographic
funding makes it possible."
Gifford chuckled when he
said underwater excavation is
much like it is on land.


"Once you get into a routine
and start digging, it's much like
digging on land, only no mos-
quitoes" he said. "People who
think about Florida and appre-
ciate it know it has a history
that goes back thousands and
thousands of years. Little Salt
Spring is a source of evidence."
Gifford and the other divers
hope to discover human
remains.
"We'll spend 40-to-50 total
hours underwater, which is a
significant amount of time at
that depth," he said. "I mostly
teach during the school year, so
in the summer I do field work.
This is substantially more
appealing."
Gifford didn't know if
National Geographic represen-
tatives would visit the site.
"National Geographic funds
dozens of projects, and they
can't visit all of them. An article
is still a possibility, but the peo-
ple who give the money and
run the magazine are different."
Divers were keeping mum
about anything they found.
"We have found some inter-
esting items, some interesting
material, but I signed stuff,"
said Koski, referring to waivers
the divers signed for National
Geographic. "(Whatever we
find) will be revealed at a later
time."

'Football Uncyclopedia' will keep fans from throwing things


TERRI
SCHLICHENMEYER
THE BOOKWORM


Duck.
For a few weeks each
year, your friends and
family get good at that.
It's not that you're a vio-
lent person. Really, it's not
that at all.
The thing is, at some
point, your team will do
something boneheaded. A
coach will make a bad
decision. A ref will make a
bad call and there you are,
yelling and throwing
peanuts or popcorn, foam
bricks or crumpled paper
at the TV Nobody wants in
the way, so they all DUCK.
This football season,
distract yourself from a
frustrating game with "The
Football Uncyclopedia", a
new book by Michael Kun
and Adam Hoff. Keep it
by your elbow, and you
won't throw anything at
the TV. You'll be too busy
laughing.


"The Football o; T A
Uncyclopedia" , ,r
by Michael .,,
Kun and
Adam Hoff, --
2008,
Clerisy
Press, $15.95,
256 pages


So the game's in
progress and you're sitting
there, smug. You know
everything there is to know
about football because
you've been a fan since the
womb. Nobody can tell
you anything you haven't
already repeated twice.
But let's take, for
instance, Tom Dempsey.
Did Dempsey's handicap
help him break a record
that has been equaled
once but never surpassed?
Argue amongst your-
selves, then read what Kun
and Hoff say.
And you know that guy
in the old soft drink com-
mercial, the one with the
little boy? Would you
believe that guy's name is
not "Mean Joe Greene"?
No, seriously. It's in there,
go look.
OK, how 'bout this: Kun
and Hoff say the last play-
er selected in the NFL draft
is not a bad player. They
also say that all football


You know that guy
in the old soft
drink commercial,
the one with the
little boy? Would
you believe that
guy's name is not
"Mean Joe
Greene"? No,
seriously. It's in
there, go look.


players are not bad actors.
And Raiders fans are not
like other fans. Ditto for
the Packers. And why -
with the humongous pop-
ulation it has can't Los
Angeles keep a team?
Do you snicker about
the name of the Bears'
great linebacker? Check
out the "F" entries to see if
there's a funnier name
than his. Look at the "P"
entries to see what your
dad wants for Christmas.
Oh, and don't forget to
read the footnotes. How











*


else would you learn who
almost made a Terminator
movie or what Playboy
magazine has in common
with the game?
If you're not watching
football in your favorite
TV-viewing spot, chances
are you're catching it at
your favorite watering
hole. And if you're not
watching football this
weekend, you should be
reading this book.
Browsing "The Football
Uncyclopedia" is a little
like spending pre-game at
the bar with two fellow
fans who love to argue
football and talk trash. It's
like watching a cable-
sports show with a couple
of average wiseguys as co-
hosts. It's like football fact
one-upmanship in book
form.
Authors Michael Kun
and Adam Hoff good-
naturedly rib one another
and they poke fun at plen-
ty of players. They lay
some myths to rest and
add fire to a few others.
You'll agree sometimes
and sometimes not, but


* ., *


* *


you'll laugh for sure.
If you're not a football
fan, you won't like this
book. Go find another one
and leave this to the people
who live for the game. "The
Football Uncyclopedia"
will quack them up.

The Bookworm is Terri


Schlichenmeyer Terri has
been reading since she was
3 years old and never goes

"W', 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.

Located just a short walk

home.
As decorated by the present

Taking the dog for a walk on the wild side


( T od, you walk
-K your dog every
t. morning and
evening, don't you?" a
neighbor asked the other
day. "Yeah, why?" I
replied. He then asked if
I carried a big stick
during the walks and
when I said that I didn't,
he proceeded to lecture
me about the danger of
coyotes roaming our
neighborhood. I must
have looked skeptical
because he said, "I'm not
kidding; I've seen
coyotes a few blocks
down the road and so
have other neighbors.
Didn't you see the
television news coverage
the other week about the
attacks on small dogs by
coyotes down around
Naples? I think one little
pooch was killed."
Well, I did see that
news broadcast and
thought how awful it
must have been and
then promptly dis-
missed it. "Not in my
neighborhood," I
thought. Things like that
always happen some-
where else. Then I
remembered that I saw
a coyote walking down
the middle of a road a
few blocks from my
home last year as I drove
around. And I recalled
hearing a pack yipping
and yapping on several
evenings. It took awhile
to register at first, but
they were definitely
coyotes having spent
nearly 25 years living in
Wyoming and Montana,
I'm real familiar with
coyotes. And one thing I
know for certain is that
coyotes love little dogs.
One of the hunting
techniques used by
western ranchers who
have problem coyotes -
coyotes killing livestock
- is to use a coyote dog.
Coyote dogs are small
dogs trained to lure
coyotes into range by
yapping and yelping so
ranchers or agents for
the ranchers can eradi-


, Tl I I l Xl.l 19 I [,] 1
cate them. The little
dogs are highly effective
and prized for their
skills, and it's amazing to
watch.
My little 10-pound dog
Monty would make a
tasty morsel for a pack
or coyotes, but I live in
suburbia in Florida,
no way. Yes way; there
are coyotes here and
they could be potentially
dangerous. But so far, I
haven't had a close
encounter.
Monty has had several
encounters with wildlife
on our daily walks. We
live in an area with few
homes and many vacant
overgrown lots. Sure,
there's a house here and
there, but not many
along our nearly-mile-
route. He roams on his
30-foot retractable lead,
investigating every new
thing he finds along the
familiar route. Occasion-
ally and much to his
delight, he give chase -
to the confines of his
lead to the small
cottontail rabbits
(chocolate bunnies) he
encounters along the
way. He's learned to
sneak up on them and
then bolt after them in a
burst of speed. It uncan-
ny how he learned just
how far his lead will
allow him to go. When
the bunny bolts into the
brush, he stops and
prances back to me
proud as can be. It's fun
to watch the mighty
hunter.
It's a good thing that
he's a quick and agile
little pooch because he
meets a snake every now
and then. It takes a few


High-flying boat
Sailing Away
WILL WHITE
One of the most
1. startling sailing sights
I've seen in some
years is a video of an
S11-foot-long Interna-
tional Moth Class
. - sailboat zooming
along a couple of
feet above the water
with only its dagger-
board and rudder in
S the water.


* Page 7


Mil 1 (11*111 1"i [I]M


jumps and dodges on
his part before I recog-
nize that a snake is
striking at him before I
pull him back. He
doesn't like armadillos
because he got a little
too close to one who
hissed and lunged at
him once. He now gives
them a wide berth. The
same goes for the many
tortoises we encounter.
He accidentally stepped
over one neither of us
saw and the hissing
scolding it gave him
cured him of tortoise
curiosity.
He also loves to give
chase to the many doves
sitting on the ground in
the evenings and the
little bobwhite quail
when they're around. He
just can't help himself.
And his curiosity when
he sees a raccoon cross
in front of him makes
him insane for a while.
He looks up at me as he
strains against his lead
as if to ask, "Oh please,
pleeeeease let me chase
that thing."
But it's the other
potentially dangerous
critters that I keep any
eye out for during the
walks. There are bobcats
in the bushes and I've
seen them many times.
One was so brazen it
crossed the road not 30
feet from me while I sat
on my lawn mower
cutting the grass. I know
when there's one in our
area because the little
chocolate bunnies
disappear.
And I've been told by
three separate sources
that a Florida panther
has been spotted in our
development. I'm very
skeptical about that, but
you never know.
Our little morning and
evening walks are events
this little dog lives for
and his internal alarm
clock alerts him when
the time nears. He
begins pestering me a
full 15 minutes before its
time and heaven help if


I'm busy or forget. But I
enjoy the walks as much
as he does; it gives me
time to prepare my day
and time to wind down
at the end of each day.
Besides, a walk on the
wild side (yeah I know,
this is definitely not
Wyoming or Montana) is
a little adventure we
share daily.

It's a well-known fact: Kids love fishing
Ary sons, James


v l Jr. Dyer,
M ran a Big
Brothers and Big Sisters
fishing tournament on
Lake Jackson in
Sebring a few years
back and the kids loved
it. Many folks volun-
teered their boats and
took time to take the
kids fishing and it was
great. There is a chil-
drens home here in
Sebring and it was pure
pleasure looking at the
kids' faces when they
had the chance to get
out with an adult to go
fishing. And the sup-
port from all the local
businesses was nothing
short of fantastic.
We have a local
tournament every
Wednesday in our area


and we encourage
adults to bring a child
to participate. The
tournament begins at
7:30 a.m. and ends at
noon. The entry fee is
$30 per boat with a
three fish limit and we
allow the kids to
participate in the
winnings. My three
grandchildren recently
participated in one.

Ladyfish


- unloved and underrated


M ost charter
guys will not
admit, it but
the lowly ladyfish has
saved many a charter.
Even more importantly,
it is now the bait du jour
in Charlotte Harbor and
will catch a lot of fish if
used correctly. In a
recent article, we
discussed the "dog days
of summer" and how it
is best to take what the
Harbor gives you. Well,
the days of the ladyfish
have arrived and
tarpon are on a ram-
page and are getting
their fill of this often
under loved, underrat-
ed and underused fish.
Ditto for redfish, which
are now feeding, due to
the dark tannin-stained
water, more by smell
than by sight.
Often called the poor
man's tarpon, ladyfish
are both fun to catch
and useful in the quest
for all sorts of so-called
primary gamefish.
They can and should
be "chunked," soaked
on the bottom or just
used alive and whole
depending on your
target fish. They can
also be used as decoys,
which is what is often
going on this time of


^ lri 4 'I I U0 0A
year. On a recent day
on the water with good
friend Fred Hannon,
we found a very large
school of ladyfish off of
Capt Haze Point and
thought there might be
other fish feeding in
the vicinity. Two casts
with a chrome-colored
Super Spook answered
that question when a
tarpon in the 80-
pound class blasted
the plug. The feed was
so violent that I just
stood there, mouth
open, wondering what
the heck was happen-
ing. It was a hoot and it
happened twice. It was
the first time that I can
truthfully say that I
have had a tarpon
blow up on a topwater
plug, so it was a terrific
experience. No, I did
not catch the fish, but I
really did not care
because the strike was


what was fun and I was
using a Shimano 4000
series reel that would
have been akin to
taking a knife to a
gunfight.
Ladyfish can be easily
located this time of
year by following the
birds. If you see a large
number of terns or
gulls dipping and
diving on the water,
there is better than a
good chance that there


are ladyfish under
them. And where there
are ladyfish, there are
other fish feeding as
well. On the day we
went out we found very
large bluefish and a few
trout feeding around
the ladies. Most were
caught using topwater
plugs, which only
added to the fun. There
is nothing like catching
any fish on a topwater
plug. And in a feeding


frenzy that is usually
going on around the
ladyfish, a topwater
plug is the berries.
So, these often-
overlooked little gems
cannot only be your
friend, they can be the
best bait to use right
now. And if nothing
else is biting, they are
great fun to catch. A
good tug on the line
and aerial acrobatics
that are better than


most other fish out
there just add to their
importance to making
for a good fishing day.
Frankly, I used to say
"ugh, ladyfish" when I
had one on my line.
Not any more!

Ladies catch onto fishing techniques at Florida

Gulf Coast 'Ladies, Let's Go Fishing!' seminar


Women from across
Florida honed their
fishing skills at the
"Ladies, Let's Go Fish-
ing!" Seminar, Aug. 22-24
at the Hyatt Regency
Sarasota. As a child, Dr.
Debra Sandberg of
Sarasota fished with her
grandfather and wanted
to understand the
techniques and strategy
behind fishing. Trish Reid
of Orlando came to learn
skills to teach her grand-
son. Taking the seminar


for the fourth time,
Kathleen Brucker of St.
Petersburg came because
she realized there is
always more to learn
about fishing.
Known as the "No-
Yelling School of Fish-
ing," this award-winning
series for women, held in
conjunction with Flori-
da's Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commis-
sion and presented by
Mercury Outboards,
kicked off with a Friday


networking reception.
Learning commenced on
Saturday, where fishing
techniques were taught
at beginner and interme-
diate/advanced levels.
After lunch, the women
participated in several
"hands-on" fishing
stations, such as conser-
vation techniques, spin
casting, net casting,
releasing, knot tying,
gaffing grapefruits, boat
handling, trailer backing
and reeling against

Searching for surface action on the fly


I love surface strikes.
It's a sensory sort
of thing; it's visual
and auditory. So I
looked forward to a
weeklong trip to
Wyoming where rising
trout awaited my dusty
dry flies. There is
nothing quite like
arriving at a river, creek
or stream and seeing
the surface dimpled
with the rise-forms of
feeding fish. Watching
a large trout rhythmi-
cally sucking floating
mayflies off the surface
in a predictable
cadence is one of the
joys of fly fishing that's
difficult to describe
and certainly incompa-
rable in saltwater. It's
ballet-like, an aquatic
dance of rise, tilt, and
descent preformed
with grace and ele-
gance. It is the reason
why fly fishing has
been described as the
quiet sport.
But Tropical Storm
Faye forced me to
abort the trip as my
flight was cancelled
and rebooking it was
out of the question
because of other
commitments. So I
settled for the pop-
settle-twitch, pop-
settle-twitch gulp
that was the rhythm of
a morning spent fly
fishing a pond in
search of bass and
panfish. The wind was
calm, the water glassy
and the fish were
cooperative. If it wasn't
for my total concentra-
tion on the small
rubber-legged popping
bug I was using, I
would have drifted off
into a somnambular
trance it was that
peaceful and relaxing. I
had to concentrate
because if I took my
eyes of the popping
bug it would simply
vanish from the sur-
face. Some of the takes
were silently subtle
considering the size of
the fish that ate it.
I headed for a small
local lake armed with
my 4-weight fly rod
rigged with a relatively
short leader and
attached a smallish
popping bug to the
tippet. The bug was rife
with rubber legs that
quivered with little
manipulation. I walked
around the edge of the
lake looking for small
openings in the reeds
to cast through and
caught a handful of
small bass and panfish.
But I spent consider-
able time untangling
my fly from the reeds
or snapping them off.
So the next morning I


arrived at the lake with
my kayak, which
certainly made things
easier and I didn't have
to muscle a fish
through all sorts of
vegetation to get to the
small boat. My plan
was to drift along a
shoreline and cast to
small pockets in the
bank and cattails. An
errant cast had to be
retrieved from the
bushes but that was
simple enough -
unlike fishing from the
shore. I have to admit
to a bit of trepidation
on my part, especially
when a bird make a
loud crashing sound as
it attempted to flee
form my invasive
approach. "Gator," was
all I could think about.
I spent the next few
hours catching as
many fish as I cared to,
most were small but I
didn't care. My tech-
nique was simple: Cast,
allow the popping bug
to settle, twitch, pop,
settle and twitch. Bass
and panfish ate it at
every step of the way,
some even ate it while
it lay motionless as I
fiddled with my stuff or
lit a new cigar. It was
mindless fun and felt
great having to concen-
trate on watching my
small surface fly. Some
of the takes were very,
very subtle the bug
just vanished from the
surface of the water.
Others were loud,
splashy and very hard
to miss. By the end of
the morning my
craving for surface
action was sated and I
felt refreshed.
We live in an area
that has hundreds of
lakes and ponds, many
of which see little
fishing pressure and all
hold fish of some sort.
There are also miles
and miles of freshwater
canals that see little
pressure. The surface
action junkie can get
his fill of fish busting
topwater flies with just
a little effort. A polite
inquiry here or there
may allow access to
water rarely fished. But
there is enough public
water available with
enough catchable fish
to meet anyone's
needs.
A kayak, canoe or
small Jon boat opens
up more water as many
of our area's waters can
be accessed with a
small boat, especially
the freshwater sections

Recognizing the first sign of danger


Most boaters
know that
drowning is
the leading cause of
boating fatalities. It may
come as a surprise to
know that in over 80
percent of drowning
incidents, the victim
was not wearing a life
jacket. The law does not
require the wearing of
life jackets, but in our
safe boating classes we
are taught that we
should put our life
jackets on at the first
sign of danger. So how is
it that over 80 percent of
drowning victims were
not wearing life jackets?
I have come to the
conclusion that it is
because boaters are so
consumed with having
fun that they fail to see


when they cross the line
into a dangerous
situation.
This week there was a
Michigan boating
fatality. A father was
slowly towing his 4-
year-old son on a tube.
The child, who was
wearing a life jacket,
slipped off the tube
when it came to a stop.
Although the child was
in no apparent danger,


Milli'l I luqvu vi I


the father was alarmed
and jumped overboard
to assist. The father was
not wearing a life jacket.
He became distressed,
slipped under the water
and drowned.
The question begging
to be asked is, "Was
putting a 4-year-old at
risk not a sign of dan-
ger?" If we can agree
that it was, then the
father should have been
wearing his life jacket
while driving the boat.
He then would have
been ready to assist his
child. This situation
reminds me of a kayak-
er that called to chastise
me for an article stating
that life jackets should
be worn at the first sign
of danger. He sternly
told me that, "Kayakers


should always wear life
jackets." He ridiculed
me for thinking a
kayaker had time to put
a life jacket on when
capsizing. It took a
lengthy conversation for
me to convince him
that the first sign of
danger was when he got
into that kayak and
stuck a paddle in the
water. He never thought
of it that way!
The United States
Power Squadrons basic
boating class teaches us
that a captain is respon-
sible for the safety of his
crew. A captain needs to
be aware of the physical
limitations of the people
onboard as well as
water and weather
conditions around him.
When you persons are


aboard with any type of
physical or age handi-
cap, you now have
additional people to
assist in case of emer-
gency. When trouble
happens, it is often
without warning or time
to put on life jackets.
Therefore, you and your
guest with limitations
should be wearing life
jackets. Operating in
busy waters with lots of
boat traffic and passing
wakes are other signs of
danger, and it's time to
put on those life jackets.
Keep an ear to NOAA
and a "360-degree eye
to the sky" for
approaching weather.
Potential adverse
weather is a sign of
danger. Pulling a person
on a tube or water skis

is a lot of fun but is
inherently dangerous.
Any sign of mechanical
problems on a boat is a
sign of danger. Is the
engine missing, over-
heating, low on fuel? It's
time for all to put on
their life jackets.
Don't think that you
are ready for any

haven't the time nor

PowerPro furnished the

Lunker Lure Products
furnished all the spinner-
baits and jigs while Nancy
Infinger furnished the
Charlie's Worms. It's really
great that these folks help
like they do and they never
hesitate when asked to
support the kids.
If you are interested in
participating in one of the
Wednesday tournaments
you can contact Paul
Tardiff at 863-385-8077.
These are open tourna-
ments with no member-
ship fees, so you can fish
with a child, wife, girlfriend


or buddy and just have a
good time. All the lakes
fished are here in Central
Florida in the Sebring area.
We fished the Kissimmee
chain of lakes and caught
several limits of fish and
culled down our five largest
that weighed 16.25 pounds.
That was good enough to
finish fourth in the tourna-
ment. The winning weight
was four fish that weighed
a little over 20 pounds. All
the fish caught came from
reeds and grass, although
some were caught using
crankbaits in the rivers and
canals.
Lakes Istokpoga and
Josephine in Highlands
County are producing fish
from the reeds and bon-
nets using Charlie's Worms


and crawfish and Hawg
Caller spinnerbaits. A
sleeper lake this time of
year is Lake Arbuckle out of
Avon Park just north of
Sebring. Fish will be in the
bonnets and can be caught
on worms, crawfish and

O BY CORBIN DYER


FLYING
From page 7

Even with their wide
foils, the early boats were
very difficult to sail,
requiring lightning
reflexes to keep the boats
from diving. Then one
sailor, who knew a thing
or two about airplane
wings, devised a way to
keep the forward foil self-
adjusting. As I under-
stand it, there is a wand
that dips down into the
water from the bow. It
automatically controls a
set of elevators at the aft
edge of the foil, and -
eureka you have
something resembling a
Piper Cub's wings. All the


aviator/sailor has to
control is the rudder, and
his position on the boat.
Balance is still critically
important.

SAILOR OR AVIATOR?
Sailing a winged Moth
still requires a high
degree of athleticism, but
apparently a competent
dinghy sailor can adjust
quickly. The reaction is
apparently startling;
instead of rocking and
swooping through the
waves, the boat suddenly
lifts out of the water and
becomes steady as a cart
on rails. A Moth sailor
named Rohan Veal
bought a set of Moth foils
from fellow Australian
John Ilett, who with


Garth Ilett had devel-
oped the first successful
pair of in-line foils for
their Moth. Veal finished
third in the 2003 Moth
World Championship.
The next year he won
every race, with speeds
some 20 percent faster
than the best in-the-
water Moth at the
championship. As sailors
have learned to get more
out of their foils, speeds
have increased, so that
30 miles an hour is
possible off the wind.
Even sailing close-
hauled, sailors have
learned to heel their
boats to windward, so
that the foils provide lift
to windward as well as
straight up. Sailed this


way, Bi-Foilers actually
point higher and sail
faster than conventional
Moths.
Dr. Ward has been
looking beyond Bi-
Foilers to Unifoilers! He
envisions foils just on the
daggerboard, with a
canard arrangement on
the bow acting as a
sensor and the hull itself
as the sensor arm to
maintain fore-and-aft
stability, eliminating the
aft foil on the rudder and
the elevators on the
daggerboard foil. As a
matter of fact a Californ-
ian name Rich Miller has
produced a successful
Unifoil rig for his sail-
board, (usually called a
windsurfer, but that was


a trademark.) Next step, a
kite-powered Unifoil
sailboard?
An investment of
$14,000 for the Aus-
tralian Bladerider that
won this year's Moth
World Championship is
a pretty steep price for
an 11-foot boat, but you
can always design and
build your own Moth
and foils. An aeronauti-
cal engineering degree
would be useful.
Will White has raced
and cruised sailboats
since 1942, published The
Sunfish Bible, wrote a
bunch of sailing articles,
and is building a 31-foot
schooner He can be

GENERAL RULES
Game fish and nongame fish may be taken with pole and
line or rod and reel. There is no limit on the number of rods
an angler may use.
All freshwater fish are measured total length.Total length is
the maximum length of the fish, with the mouth closed and
the tail fin pinched together.The best way to obtain this length
is to push the fish's snout up against a vertical surface with
the mouth closed and the fish laying along a tape measure,
then pinch the tail fin closed and determine the total length.
Do not pull a flexible tape measure along the curve of the fish.
It is illegal to possess any freshwater fish along with gear that
cannot legally be used to take freshwater fish, including gear
types legal for taking nongame fish or bait. An exception is game
fish may be possessed together with cast nets having a stretched
mesh size not greater than 1 inch; minnow dip nets not more
than 4 feet in diameter; minnow seines having a stretched mesh
size not greater than 1 inch, a length not more than 20 feet and
a depth not more than 4 feet; and minnow traps not more than
24 inches in length and 12 inches in diameter, with a funnel
entrance not more than 1 inch in spread.
Use of any hand or mechanically propelled, single or
multi-pronged spear or lance, barbed or barbless, to harvest
or attempt to harvest any marine species while diving in
freshwater is prohibited.

Tons of small bait means



good things now and later


The summer of 2008
has been a bounti-
ful one. The entire
coast is thick with tiny
baitfish. It's not some-
thing that happens every
year, but it can mean
great fishing.
This is puzzling for
early summer. Migrato-
ry scaled sardines,
threadfin herring and
Spanish sardines spawn
in the nearshore Gulf
during the summer
along the Gulf Coast.
There are often times
when we see the estuary
empty of whitebait and
huge schools along the
beach are full of roe-
heavy females. This is a
part of the bait lifecycle
that few anglers
comprehend.
The worst place for
any marine fish to
spawn is over the
inshore grassflats where
migratory baitfish,
snook, trout and redfish
hang out. The grassflats
are rich with small egg
predators like pinfish,
jellyfish and a number
of estuarine minnows. A
bait hatch in this
environment would
have little chance for
survival.
Consequently, these
fish go to the Gulf to
spawn. There, in the
deep, relatively predator-
free environment, their

eggs and larvae have a
much better chance for
successful recruitment.
However, such small
bait, often called glass
minnows, usually shows
up in September after
the mature sardines
spawn. The 2008 hatch
means an early spawn-
ing run and there are not
any clear reasons why.
No one knows much
about the reproductive
behavior of marine fish,
particularly bait types.
So don't try and figure it
out. Just be glad it's out
there. When the huge
schools of small bait
come ashore it pro-
duces fishing magic.
Everything is drawn to
this gigantic source of
protein. Mackerel and

The small bait schools
are tailor made for the
long wand angler and
you can't use a fly that is
too small.
They call the tiny
baitfish "glass minnows"
for a reason. The bait is
so small that it is
translucent with green
and white colors that
appear to have a film of
clear cellophane to
create prisms for those
colors. For that reason
the most effective fly is
the Chico Fernandez or
Carl Hansen "glass
minnow" flies. Both of
these slightly different
lures utilize clear
monofilament fishing
line that is wrapped over
a silver fly body.
When gamefish are
attacking the small bait
you can't move the fly
too fast. But that means
traditional glass minnow
flies rise to the surface
and make poor presen-
tations. Consequently, a
lot of good fly anglers are
now using eye weights,
originally used on the
Clouser Minnow fly, and
creating a hybrid of the
Clouser and the venera-
ble glass minnow fly. But
when it is really hot you
don't have to get that
fancy.
Any small green and
white streamer with
some silver Mylar will


work. For spinning rods
small spoons and jigs in
those colors are also
deadly. To most anglers
small means 1/0 in
saltwater, but I do much
better with baits scaled
down to number four.
You will lose a lot more
fish to cut offs with the
smaller lure and wire
shock tippets are not an
answer, but the small
"match the hatch" lures
will draw a lot more
strikes than larger flies.
If this action is your
goal forget about
catching livebait. When
gamefish becomes
targeted they want
something that matches
the small size of what
they are feeding on.
A couple of years ago,
during such a plethora
of small bait, I caught
four keeper mangrove
snapper on a tiny glass
minnow fly in Lemon
Bay. So the little bait isn't
just for striking fish at
this time of year.
With this much bait
now, we should have a
heck of a fall. That's
when the tiny bait really
shines. But you can start
the countdown right
now.

Look out, Alaska, here we come!


W we're going to
Alaska! Patti
and I are
taking advantage of our
summer slow season to
make a two-week
vacation/honeymoon to
the far north where we
hope to escape the heat,
see some sights, and
catch a few fish. Patti
thinks I'm obsessed with
our Alaska trip, but I
think obsessed is such a
strong word. I'll admit
that I've spent a little
time (OK, a lot of time)
over the last six months
researching and plan-
ning for this trip, but
obsessed? No way.
How do you plan for
such a trip, you ask?
Well, this was my
strategy. I'd actually been
to Alaska four years ago,


so I had some experi-
ence there, experience
that will be mostly
helpful in planning for
the weather evening
lows in the upper 40s to
lower 50s, daytime highs
in the 60s most days.
More overcast than sun,
and rain on a lot of days.
Unlike Florida rains,
most of the summer
Alaska rains are light
enough that good rain
gear allows most out-
door activities to contin-
ue, but the rain gear
must be good.
We wanted to see as
much of the huge state
as was practical in two
weeks and with a
modest budget. So after
much digging around on
the Internet and after
talking to dozens of


people who had traveled
in Alaska, we opted to
rent an RV for a week, an
option that would save
on hotel bills and give us
mobility and flexibility.
The second week would
be spent staying with
friends who invited us to
share their home in a
small coastal town.
With dates set, airline
tickets in hand and RV
reservations confirmed
it was time to work out a
plan for our two weeks
of playtime. I started by
logging onto the Web
sites of every visitor's
bureau in Alaska and
requesting brochures,
maps and all the other
free goodies that all
visitors' bureaus love to
produce. More Internet
searching turned up Web


sites for countless
outfitters, tourist attrac-
tions and other tourist-
related businesses, many
that were also eager to
send out literature.
Lastly I hit the Web
sites for the National
Park Service, the
Alaska Department of
Fish and Game, and the
Alaska State Park system
and also clicked on all
the links for freebies.
Within a few weeks I
started accumulating a
stack of stuff, stuff that
found a home on our
dining room table.
While I was waiting for
my brochures, booklets
and flyers to arrive I
hunted around on the
Internet for forums on
Alaska. I found a couple
of very active outdoors


forums that catered to
anglers and I spent some
time reviewing the many
posts from residents and
visitors. You see some
really interesting stuff
posted on Internet
forums and it definitely
pays to view them with


an open mind. But you
can get opinions on
various topics from a
wide variety of people
and perusing an active
forum over a long period
of time does provide a

Tom's ruminations on the circle of life


I Il : li IMI0 '
Despite the media's
obsession with preg-
nant celebrities, I could
honestly care less who has a
new "baby bump" this week.
Reproduction doesn't require
any acting talent. Don't get me
wrong; I think childbearing
(and rearing) is still a fascinat-
ing process especially for
the species dwelling in the salt
water around us.
Consider one obvious
example dolphins. Watch-
ing a female dolphin and her
offspring performing synchro-
nized swimming routines in
the Harbor is pure joy. Yeah, I
know they eat the same fish I
am chasing. But the world
would definitely be a lesser
place without them.
How about manatees? My
very first encounter with this
species (other than bumper
stickers) happened one
morning as I dangled my feet
(and a fishing line) off a canal
seawall. What initially looked
like two capsized canoes
moving past me turned out to
be a mama manatee and her
chubby child. It was a real
Kodak moment.
I had another encounter
with water babies when I was
practicing throwing a cast net.
I retrieved what I thought was
a skinny piece of whitebait.
But upon closer inspection, I
recognized it as a tiny snook. I
reacted like the father of a
newborn: "Oh look, isn't he
cute. He's even got a little
stripe!" I put him back in the
water and hoped we would
meet again when he reached
the slot size.
Recently, I actually wit-
nessed a birth on a local pier.
After catching a stingray, I
prepared to unhook him -
excuse me her! But I didn't
want to join the Crocodile


1:111" Itl l 1 1 O'M F., ILI


Hunter in heaven, so I turned
the job over to my fishing
partner. He told me to hold on
because she was about to
deliver. Deliver what? Oh my
gosh, she was pregnant.
Apparently stingray "baby
bumps" appear in skin
pouches on the widest
juncture of her torso.
Luckily, my fishing buddy
had experience as a stingray
midwife. He gently applied
pressure to the matching
pouches, and without as
much as a burp from the
mother, two baby rays
blooped into the world. I
would hesitate to call the


twins "cute," but they did have
their mother's eyes.
Like most sharks (and
Hollywood stars), stingrays
have no maternal instinct. The
little ones are on their own
from the start. Here is where I
am going to get in trouble
with the "Bambi" crowd. Baby
rays happen to make great
bait for certain game fish,
which is what we used them
for. Enough said on that topic.
Identifying little fishes isn't
easy. I was surf casting one
morning and caught a very
small crevalle jack. I did my
very best to release him
unharmed, but by the time I


got the hook removed, it was
too late. I tossed the little fish
to hungry a heron standing
guard nearby. (This was before
I learned not to feed wild
birds.) My actions did not go
unnoticed. Fifty yards down
the beach an angler shouted
out, "What are you doing?
That was a permit you just fed
to that bird!" I said, "No, it was
a jack." He wanted to argue
about it, but I restrained my
basic male need to always be
right and returned to fishing.
This time of year, major
storms and rain showers drain
tons of particulates into our
waterways. When this hap-


pens in the freshwater canal
behind my home, the white
ibises line the banks looking
for gasping juvenile tilapia. It's
not easy being a baby fish.
The life cycle of all these
marine animals is varied.
Their offspring grow at
different rates. Our species
ages at the same speed -
unless of course you are a
female Chinese gymnast in
the Olympics. Then the clock
moves a little quicker.

window on what's happen-
ing in a community. I
posted a few questions that
were generally answered
quickly and cheerfully by a
number of people.
With tons of information
in hand, it was time to start
planning what items to
take. Beside rain gear, we
decided to pack stocking-
foot waders and take both
spinning and fly tackle. We
set a goal of trying to
sample as many different
freshwater fisheries as
possible, and to catch as
many different species of
fish as possible on both
spin and fly. I figured that
eight species would be
possible (three species of
salmon, three species of
trout, northern pike and
Arctic grayling). Our goal:


Catching at least six of
these species. The more I
planned, the more tackle I
figured was "must-have"
and by trip day I'd man-
aged to work five rods, six
reels and a bulging tackle
pack into my suitcase,
thereby bumping hard
against the airline's 50-
pound luggage weight
limit.
Next week: How did it
go? Let's go fishing!

Payback time
for the Watters
brothers

Kim





Song and

dance man Eric Watters
and his brother Carl have
performed countless shows in
the Venice area to raise money
and awareness for the Venice
Symphony, youth programs
and other good causes.
Saturday it will be the com-
munity's turn to entertain the
Watters brothers and pay trib-
ute to both of them for all the
joy they have given to people in
the greater Venice community
and as far away as Naples. They
took their annual show there a
couple of years ago to raise
money for a charity.
Sadly, Carl may not be danc-
ing with his brother in future
shows for he has been diag-
nosed with ALS, better known
as Lou Gehrig's disease. That is
not to say that he might not
find some other way to remain
in the Eric Watters and Friends
Show started some 15 years ago
by Eric. With Jim Magero,
brother Eric and for a some
years, symphony Maestro Wes
Schumacher, Carl was one of
the high-kicking dancers
known as the Dum Dee Doo
Wahs. While they were never as
pretty as any of the famed
Rockettes from NewYork City,
they really could kick up a
storm on stage.
The tribute to the Brothers
Watters begins at 7 p.m. at the
Venice Theatre. Television per-
sonality Jack Perkins will emcee
the evening show, which will
include performances by the
symphony, the combined
choirs of Venice Presbyterian
Church and many other talent-
ed friends and fans of the
brothers.
Tickets are $25 per persona
and may be purchased at the
theater's box office in person or
by phone. The theater is at
140W Tampa Ave., on the
island in downtown Venice.

Venice Theatre opens


'Forbidden Broadway'


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice Theatre kicks off its
2008-2009 cabaret season
Friday with "Forbidden
Broadway," a show offers par-
odies of hit Broadway shows.
Written by Gerard
Alessandrini, the show has
evolved and changed for some
20 years, poking fun at the
music, the stories and the
stars of Broadway. The the-
ater's assistant artistic direc-
tor, Allan Kollar, said the
Venice Theatre is the first
community theater to gain the
rights to produce the show. It
is directed by Michael
Newton-Brown, choreo-
graphed by Jim Hoskins and
the musical director is Michael
Sebastian who served in that
capacity at Florida Studio
Theatre for many years.
Hoskins is one of the area's
top choreographers, making
for an exceptionally strong
production team.
The cast includes Bobbi
Eschenbach, Heather Kopp,


Craig Weiskerger and
Charles McKenzie.
The Venice production will
include references to such
Broadway hits as "Mamma
Mia," "Wicked" and "Hairspray,"
plus spoofs of the likes of Liza
Minelli, Ethel Merman and
Barbra Streisand.
"Forbidden Broadway" runs
through Sept. 21.
"Forbidden Broadway," and
the other three scheduled
cabaret series shows will be
presented in the Yvonne T.
Pinkerton Theatre, home of
the theater's Stage Two pro-
ductions.
The Stage Two season of
contemporary works opens
Nov. 6, with "Nickel and
Dimed," and the mainstage


season opens Sept. 30 with
"Steel Magnolias."

shows are $24 per person. Seas
on tickets area available to
each series and this year, for
the first time, there is a
$299 Golden Ticket package

Lead roles cast for 'The Producers' at Venice Theatre


FEATURES EDITOR
Several times, Venice
Theatre fans journeyed to
New York City to see "The
Producers" on Broadway.
Finally, the super hit version
of Mel Brooks and Thomas
Meehan is coming to the
Venice Theatre. The theater's
artistic director, Murray Chase,
recently named the actors
selected for the lead roles in
the hilarious Broadway spoof,
which will play in Venice
from Nov. 11-Dec. 7.

Bialystock and Leo Bloom will
be played by Larry Golden


and Charles McKenzie.

Tevye in the Venice Theatre
production of "Fiddler on the
Roof" and, last year, played
"Cratchit" in "'A Christmas
Carol." This will be the second
Venice Theatre appearance for
McKenzie who is currently
appearing in the Pinkerton

Lemon Bay Playouse presents


'Wait Until Dark'


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The Lemon Bay Playhouse is
one of the smallest of the area's
many community theaters. Its
seats supposedly once were
used by the Venice Theatre -
not before that venerable the-
ater's recent remodeling -
the one before that.
There also are stories that
the building once housed a
funeral home.
Add to that scary back-
ground, the theater's next pro-
duction, "Wait Until Dark," by
Frederick Knot. Sounds like a
perfect combination for an
evening destined to chill.
The story is about a doll
brought to a young hospitalized

CALENDAR EXTRAS

Eric Hall benefit
The Eric Hall Benefit
Foundation is sponsoring a
"Last Chance" party. The
foundation was set up to help
support wounded Marines.
Hall, a 24-year-old veteran
of the Iraq and Afghanistan
conflicts who suffered from
post-traumatic stress disor-
der, disappeared in February
during a flashback. Following
an intensive search, his body
was found inside a drainage
pipe near his aunt's Harbour
Heights home March 9.
The party is scheduled for 1
p.m. Saturday at Boomers
Sports & Tiki Bar. Among the
activities scheduled are live
music, a silent auction, ven-
dor booths, 50/50 raffles and
food and drink specials. There
will be a raffle for a 2008
Limited Edition 96-cubic-inch
Dyna Wide Glide Harley. The
bike will be on display, and
tickets for the raffle will cost
$20 each. The drawing is
scheduled for Sept. 11.
Boomers is located on U.S.
41, just north of Midway


child by Sam Hendrix, played
by Jim Walsh. When the body of
the woman who gave him the
doll is found murdered outside
his apartment, Sam is suspect-
ed of being the killer and Sam's
blind wife must somehow find
the doll to prove her husband's
innocence.
When she meets a sinister
con man named Roat, played
by Gary Blomberg, the action
heats up even as the chills
spread throughout the theater.
Lilian Moore plays the role
of Suzi, the blind wife.
Gary Blomberg plays the
part of Roat.
Suzie gets help by her
neighbor, a young woman
named Gloria, played by


Boulevard in Port Charlotte.

'Soldier Fun Day'
Along with Charlotte State
Bank's Punta Gorda office, the
Punta Gorda Chamber of
Commerce is working to
honor 21 wounded veterans
from the Iraq and Afghanistan
wars by bringing them to

The public is invited to
meet and thank these troops
personally at 10 a.m. at
Laishley Park, 100 E. Retta
Esplanade, Punta Gorda.

Just down the street from the
upside-down building housing
the Wonderworks museum in
Orlando is a building that
appears to be on the verge of
being swallowed by one of
Florida's notorious sinkholes.
Not to worry it is Orlando's
museum variation of Ripley's
Believe It, Or Not newspaper col-
umn of yesteryear and one more
sign that one is on "road trip
road" International Drive.
Lined with restaurants, hotels
and attractions, International
Drive is nearly a road trip in
itself and Ripley's well -
Believe It, Or Not!
Like the column that first
appeared in print in 1929 and
made Robert Ripley a household
name, the building known as the
Odditorium, houses a collection
of items that are unusual, at the
very least. Imagine making a
three-quarter scale model Silver
Ghost Rolls Royce model car
from more than one million
matchsticks? The wheels turn
and so do many of the engine
parts. The Englishman who
crafted the model made more
than 550 matchstick models,
including this one, which took
him more than a year to make. It
is 13 feet long and its construc-
tion also used up nearly eight
gallons of glue. When it comes to
the car, seeing is believing, but
do you believe he made all those
other models or not?
In the Bigs and Littles room,
you can see the World's Smallest
Bible with the aid of a magni-
fying glass of course. Also there
is a shrunken head from
Ecuador and a full-size replica
of the world's tallest man,
American Robert Wadlow who
was 8 feet 11 inches tall. An
accompanying video loop helps
visitors understand some of the
problems he had to deal with
because of his size.
The museum also has a taxi-
dermied two-headed calf and a
10-foot section of the Berlin
Wall, which was secured on site
in 1989 by a Ripley collector who

was there as the wall was being
torn down. Loaded with original
graffiti, the wall section is out in
the open, not behind glass, so
visitors can actually go right up
to it and touch it.
All in all there are some 400
items in the Orlando collection,

As the Ripley folks have 27
museums in 10 countries, you
might find other such models in
some of the other museums -
or not.
Ripley's column ran in papers
all over the world for more than
40 years. During those years, he
covered the globe in search of
the rare and unusual and unbe-
lievable so many items that
multiple museums were the
logical answer. The buildings
are different and, like the
Orlando museum, often
inspired by the local
environment.

may stay as long as you wish.

Fort Myers museum features writer Robert Macomber


Author of A Different Kind of Honor,' will
speak about his writing Wednesday at the
Southwest Florida Museum of History


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The Southwest Florida
Museum of History is kicking
off its 2008-2009 Author
Evening event with James
Macomber, award-winning
author of "A Different Kind
of Honor."
The Pine Island writer's most
recent maritime novel about
Lt. Commander Peter Wake
just won the American Library
Association's 2008 WY. Boyd


Literary Award for Excellence
in Military Fiction. The story
takes place in 1879 and is the
sixth in a series of historical
works that have made the
Florida author internationally
famous. This time, Wake is off
the west coast of South
America while catastrophe
strikes at home in Washington,
D.C., which turns out to be just
as challenging as the jungles of
South America, Panama or a
war in the Eastern Pacific.


Macomber is a Florida
native, a historian and a cham-
pion sailor. He has degrees
from Edison College and the
University of South Florida. An
expert on maritime history,
Macomber has been a guest
on several historic vessels,
naval vessels of several coun-
tries and merchant ships. He is
considered an expert on
Florida Maritime History and
was presented with Florida
State Genealogical Society's
Outstanding Achievement
Award in 2001.
The author events are part of
a fundraising initiative at the
museum. Admission is a tax-


deductible donation of $10 per
person and includes the talk
by the featured author, signing
and dessert from Mason's
Bakery.
The author events are held
from 7-9 p.m. on the second
Wednesday of each month
except November, from
September through April.
The September event will
be Wednesday.
Oct. 8, the featured author
will be photographer Clyde
Butcher of Venice.
Reservations are suggested
as space is limited. Call
