Storms


rain on


closings

BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Floridians know that hurri-
canes can cause serious damage
to their homes and property. But
did you know a storm warning
or watch could delay the sale or
purchase of your home? It's true,
but it's better than it used to be.
When a home buyer finances
the purchase, the lender re-
quires homeowner's insurance.
But if a strike by a tropical storm
or hurricane appears to be a
possibility, insurance compa-
nies will refuse to issue a policy
until the risk passes.
In the old days, insurance
companies made that decision
based on a tracking map that
contained a "no-bind box." The
boxed area began in Haiti and
stretched west into Mexico
while the southern border be-
gan in the Caribbean Sea and
stretched to the northern bor-
ders of South Carolina, Georgia,
Alabama, Louisiana and parts of
Texas.
If a tropical storm or hurri-
cane watch or warning was
issued within the boundaries of
the no-bind box, insurance
companies would not write any
new homeowner polices. Nor
could homeowners upgrade
their current policies.
Unboxed
Citizens Property Insurance
is the state insurer of last resort
in Florida. According to its Web
site, citizensfla.com, during the
2002 hurricane season many
storms fell within the no-bind
box, but several of them didn't
actually pose a threat to Florida.
As a result, effective July 1,
2003, Citizens decided it would
no longer use the no-bind box.
Instead, it adopted a new ap-
proach, suspending the is-
suance of policies only when the
National Hurricane Center
issued a hurricane or tropical
storm watch or warning for any
part of the state of Florida.
Bill Willson, president of
Roberts Insurance, said most of
the private insurance compa-
nies he works with will stop issu-
ing policies in the county or
counties in which the watch or
warning occurs rather than
shutting down the whole state.
"With Hannah, they shut
down the Keys," he said "I see
most of the insurance compa-
nies just shutting the affected
county down, now, but if they

Shamrock Park adds 6.5 acres


BY JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota Board of County
Commissioners struck a deal
with the South Venice Beach
Endowment Trust at an Aug. 26
meeting for a 6.5-acre parcel of
land along the Intracoastal Wat-
erway east of Shamrock Park in
South Venice.
The new site, initially ap-
proved for purchase by the
county in 2006, was sold by
SVBET for $470,000.
County Commissioner Shan-
non Staub said the parcel will
eventually feature a boardwalk,
canoe and kayak ramps, a picnic
area and walking trails.
"We'd been working on this
deal for a couple of years now,"
she said. "We're pleased with the
results."
The county faced only one
problem during the land acqui-
sition: The new addition is sepa-
rated from the east boundary of
Shamrock Park by a 60-foot
swath of land owned by Venice

attorney Skip Berg.
However, Berg has granted
the county public access to the
newly purchased land and will
allow it to build a boardwalk over
the divide.
The Parks Advisory and
Recreation Council approved
the work plan for the site in
September 2007. PARC recom-
mended purchase of the land
through the Neighborhood Park
Land Acquisition Program using
county bond revenue.
In addition to the $470,000
price for land acquisition, PARC
estimated $20,000 in start-up
and $40,000 in due diligence and
closing costs, raising the total
price tag to $530,000.
According to the Sarasota
County government Web site,
Shamrock Park and Nature
Center offers more than 80 acres
of land for nature study, hiking
and active recreation. The park
offers guided bird hikes, butter-
fly garden tours and picnic areas.

Bicyclists annoy motorists
by performing unpredictable
maneuvers while riding on
public streets. There will
always be people in cars or

Position yourself to

need to make especially clear

bicyclists use proper riding

Bicycles use less road space

chooses to ride a bicycle rather
than drive is reducing traffic
and pollution problems.
Be courteous and respect-

Traffic crash
cost recovery
Among the ideas the
city is considering to gen-
erate funds: a traffic crash
cost-recovery program.
According to Venice
Police Chief Julie Williams,
most automobile incidents
involve people who are not
residents. She suggested the
city charge at-fault drivers.
The charge would come
in the form of a claim.
Residents would be exempt.
Williams suggested bud-
geting $50,000 for a consul-
tant to study the matter.


Council members liked the
idea, but weren't convinced
the research cost was
worth the investment.
They agreed to think it over.
City attorney
forgoes pay hike
City Attorney Bob
Anderson told council
members he would not be
requesting an increase in
his fees or retainer for the
upcoming year.
Litigation reserve?
Former City Manager
Marty Black issued this
warning in his message
attached to the draft 2008-
09 budget: get a grip on
pending litigation costs.


NEED C.ASHIENT
AREA RESIDENTS 0
%J.... -., 01- ..% - r- *iT.^


Black wrote: "Pending
legal costs associated with
ongoing litigation remain
a concern because these
expenses are drawn from
operating reserves.
"A financial/risk analysis
that includes a full account-
ing of litigation costs and
potential exposure is rec-
ommended to determine
appropriate policy positions
in light of limits on general
fund revenue and increased


operating expenses.
"Mayor and city council
consideration to establish
a litigation reserve may be
needed to address potan-
tial future impacts to the
general fund."
Aside from an assort-
ment of employee griev-
ances and claims filed
against the city for things
like tripping on a sidewalk,
the city is involved in litiga-
tion over a Sunshine law-


suit filed against the city
and various council and
advisory board members;
a lawsuit filed by Stephen
Milo and others against
the city over short-term
rentals; and a lawsuit filed
by the city against Sharky's
on the Pier restaurant to
have a lease intrepreted.
A public hearing on the
budget is set for Sept. 23. A
litigation reserve is not
included in the budget.

COUNTY from Page lA

that certain tenants began violating
their lease agreements, according to
Jeremiah Greer, property utilization
specialist with the county's public
works department, who revealed the
practice to the commissioners in his
presentation.
"(We found some tenants were)
subletting space in the buildings
they owned without the permission
of the county, which owns the land,"
Greer said.
Greer cited as one example the
nonprofit group Girls Incorporated,
which subleased space in its Sara-
sota building to an organization
called Ave Maria Preparatory School.
"It's a Catholic school," Greer said.
"We weren't aware of it at all and it
raised flags that we weren't doing a
good job of managing our agree-
ments."
Commissioner Jon Thaxton advo-


cated continuing the practice of
leasing to nonprofits, despite isolat-
ed lease violations.
"(This practice) has some short-
comings and we need to fix it,"
Thaxton said. "If there is going to be
subletting, we must approve it."
Backing up
Commissioners Joe Barbetta and
Paul Mercier, however, saw poten-
tially compromising ramifications in
continuing the practice.
"We have liability exposure if they
sublet on the property," Barbetta
said. 'And we don't have the staff to
continue to monitor it. Let's figure
out a way for them to eventually buy
the property. We should not be in the
(landlord) business."
Commission Chair Shannon
Staub disagreed, stating that the
county has contracts with many of
those agencies to provide needed
services in the community.


"Many of the services they pro-
vide are an investment in the future
that save us huge tax dollars," Staub
said, "particularly those that deal
with getting people back to work
(and contribute to) our youth."
Commissioner Nora Patterson
sided with Staub and Thaxton, mak-
ing the final vote 3-2 in favor of the
county continuing the practice -
albeit in a more responsible manner.
Greer, prepared to make policy
suggestions of his own to the com-
missioners, took their ultimate deci-
sion in stride.
"We are just going to kind of back
up," Greer said, "and as we have new
agreements come in, we are going to
get the basic information from (new
lessees) and then we'll either meet
individually with the commissioners
or bring it up at the next available
board meeting."

ed bodies. The city is also in the
process of acquiring a more sophis-
ticated e-mail program and other
computer software to upgrade its
ability to retain public records in a
centralized location.
Andrea Mogensen, Lorenzo's
attorney, wouldn't discuss details of
the proposal, except to say it
involved adopting a public records
ordinance modeled after one in
place in Jacksonville, which was a
party to a Sunshine lawsuit of its
own. The lawsuit was settled with
the adoption of the ordinance.
"We had multiple nonmonetary
conditions, including adopting an
ordinance to protect citizen's rights
to access public records, and train-
ing education. That has been our
focus from the beginning," said
Mogensen. "We're trying to restore
public records and prevent future
records from being destroyed."
Because the attorney fees "are so
high, that tends to distort the settle-
ment offer," she said.
City Attorney Bob Anderson, in a
letter to Mogensen dated Sept. 10,
said "the terms and conditions of
your settlement proposal are unac-
ceptable." Anderson then offered to
explore "other terms and condi-
tions" with city council, indicating a


counteroffer would be forthcoming
after discussions among the defense
attorneys.
Leaked
Settlement offers usually aren't
disclosed until the parties have
reached agreement.
This offer was "apparently leak-
ed" to the media, said Mogensen.
Nine current and former city
leaders have been named under the
lawsuit, each represented by the
lead city attorney, some with addi-
tional attorneys.
Council Member John Moore is
the only defendant who is not being
represented by Dale Scott, the attor-
ney who was appointed by the city's
insurance carrier to represent the
city and other named defendants.
In all, more than a dozen people
were privy to the settlement propos-
al, which was discussed by Anderson
and council members Tuesday
evening in a "shade" meeting. Pri-
vate meetings to discuss litigation
are permitted under the Sunshine
Law.
Admissions
Mogensen confirmed the propos-
al did not require any admission of
wrongdoing on the city's part or by


any of the named defendants.
"Numerous admissions have al-
ready been made," Mogensen said.
"It's their admissions, their issue. It
was never our intent to force admis-
sions. We're seeking changes to the
way public records are collected and
maintained."
As for the leak, Mogensen had
this to say.
"It's counterproductive ... if our
positions are going to be publicly
disclosed. If that's the case, why have
shade meetings in the first place?"
New lawsuit
A number of motions in the law-
suit have yet to be scheduled for a
hearing.
On Thursday, Mogensen said
there would "probably be a second"
separate lawsuit filed next week.
It involves additional alleged vio-
lations of the public records law by
members of city council "going back
to 2005."
Reportedly Mogensen sought to
add the charges to the current law-
suit, but the city objected.
Mogensen could petition the
judge to combine the lawsuits into a
single proceeding.

every company is exactly

Start shopping
Kathy Wood, branch
manger for Michael
Saunders & Company on
the island of Venice, said
today's Realtors are so
aware of the box they tell
their buyers to get a binder
for homeowner's insur-
ance as soon as possible.
Jan Alexander and Sam
Hague, Realtors with Exit
Realty in Venice, agreed.
'As soon as an offer
goes into contract, we tell
our buyers to start shop-
ping for insurance," Alex-
ander said. "If they are
first-time homebuyers,
this gives them the oppor-
tunity to compare prices,
or if it's during hurricane
season we want to be sure
they have coverage."
Dan Heschmeyer, bro-
ker and owner of Exit
Realty, said most insur-
ance companies will not
bind (issue a policy) if
there is a storm anywhere
along the coast of Florida.
"If a storm comes and
they freeze binding, it can


SUN NEWSPAPERS 3A

mess up time lines on
mortgage rates or repairs
that are needed on the
home, which can have a
domino effect on the
whole closing process,"
Hague said.
Tickler
Golda Radefeld, district
manager of Chelsea Title,
said things are much bet-
ter now because Realtors
are well trained and there
are fewer procrastinators.
"People have really got
trained that you can't wait
until the last minute to
lock in your insurance,"
she said. "But whenever
there is a procrastinator,
then there can be prob-
lems."
Relaxing the policy-
issuance restrictions has
made things better, and
the no-bind box may offi-
cially be a thing of the past,
but some suggest it is still a
good visual aid to motivate
buyers to get their insur-
ance locked in.
"We still show our buy-
ers the box because it's a
good tickler to help move
them toward getting their
homeowners insurance in
place," Hague said.

4-percent raise for nonbargaining employees. In
fact, the mayor is not allowed to make a motion
unless the gavel is passed to another member.
Martin later said he was prepared to support the
raise all along, and was simply giving Council
Member Sue Lang a chance to make her motion to
postpone the vote. Lang's motion died for lack of a
second, and the pay hike was adopted.
A story on a recommendation by the Venice
Police Department to adopt a false alarm ordi-
nance erroneously included a quote from Fire
Chief John Reed warning the ordinance was found
objectionable by some insurance companies. Reed
was referring to a traffic crash recovery program
that filed additional claims against nonresidents.
The Gondolier Sun regrets the errors.

OUR VIEW


When did 'business' become a dirty word?


How many of you inherited every-
thing you have?
We didn't either, and that's why
we can't understand the scorn with
which some Venetians regard the local
business community.
Venice has a large population of re-
tirees, and what they are retired from is
working ... for businesses. The income
they earned from their jobs elsewhere
bought their homes, clothed and fed
their families and sent their children to
college. The pensions and investment
income they get now bought their
homes here, pay their greens fees and
let them dine out regularly, and we're
grateful for that.
Yet some of them denigrate local
business owners and working folks who
currently have mortgages and college
tuition bills to pay and hope to be able
to spend their golden years on the golf
course.
The epithet that gets tossed around is
"greed," as in the "greedy developers"
and "greedy lawyers" who want to de-
stroy "our" Venice. Never mind that


some of these "greedy" people have
lived here their entire lives while some
of the people who have laid claim to
Venice are still unpacking from their
move here. Here's a simple question:
Where do these negative people live?
Chances are their homes were built
by a "greedy" developer, from the Bro-
therhood of Locomotive Engineers to
anyone in construction today. So were
the places where their golfing buddies
live, there being very few naturally
formed golf courses in the area.
We're not ready to echo Gordon
Gecko from the movie "Wall Street" and
proclaim that "greed is good," but who
among us hasn't generally acted in our
self-interest in financial matters?
Did any of them ever turn down a
raise because they thought they were
already earning enough money? When
they sold a house, did they price it so
they didn't make a profit? Have they
ever moved invested funds to earn a
lower return?
We didn't think so. One might call
that financial common sense, but it


could just as easily be called greed.
Now, we're not saying they should
have done those things; our point is that
it's unreasonable, if not hypocritical, to
expect business people in Venice not to
look out for themselves and their fami-
lies like they did wherever they used to
live.
Can it go to extremes? Sure. And
we've opposed projects we thought
were too tall or otherwise inappropriate
for their proposed location. But making
those decisions on a case-by-case basis
is vastly different from opposing growth
- any growth in general.
Turn the clock back before the latest
group of "greedy" developers sank their
hooks in Venice. Would these peoples'
houses be here? Their favorite restau-
rants? The place they buy groceries?
Their doctors? Them?
Something about Venice attracted
these people here, and it wasn't the
Venice of the 1920s, the 1960s or the
1980s it's Venice as it has been for the
last 10 years or so. But that Venice has
much in common with the earlier ver-


sions. You won't see West Venice Avenue
on the side of a milk carton. Despite all
the hand-wringing about how "greedy"
people are ruining the city, quaint,
charming Venice is still there.
It's easy for some people with income
derived mainly from what they did in
the past to forget that there are people
still needing to earn a living here today.
And the state of the economy, which is a
national problem, has only made it
tougher to do that.
Quality of life isn't a concern just for
retirees. It's an even bigger issue for
working people walking the thin line
between solvency and bankruptcy.
Retirees need people to fix their cars,
cut their lawns and book their tee times
- jobs many of them did when they
were younger. Unless someone can fig-
ure out how to take Venice to a self-
serve economy, those services must be
provided by people employed by busi-
nesses owned by people who are just
trying to find their piece of the Amer-
ican dream.
And what's wrong with that?


State-run medicine


kills innovation


PETER PITTS
GUEST COLUMNIST


Experimental cures are
often the last hope for
dying patients in the U.K.
health system. Thanks to
the British government,
however, many sick Brit-
ons will soon have their
last hopes dashed.
Why? Pharmaceutical
companies from around
the world have been scal-
ing back clinical research
in the United Kingdom,
largely because of govern-
ment parsimony. And Brit-
ish citizens have paid the
price, losing access to ex-
perimental new treat-
ments.
Britain's National Health
Service seems to have
made the United Kingdom
inhospitable to new drug
research. By only covering
the lowest-cost treatment
options and denying pa-
tients access to more ex-
pensive breakthrough drugs,
the NHS has erected seri-
ous roadblocks for compa-
nies trying to develop new
cures.
The main culprit is
Britain's National Institute
for Health and Clinical Ex-
cellence, the government
agency responsible for
comparing the effective-
ness of different treatment
options. Using NICE's
studies, the British govern-
ment determines which
treatments to cover and
which ones aren't worth
the cost.
When the NHS decides
not to cover a drug as
happened recently with
the new macular degener-
ation drug Avastin it
hinders the ability of drug
companies to recoup re-
search and development
expenses. That means less
money for research into
tomorrow's cures.
NHS's practices don't
just fleece pharmaceutical
research firms; they also
make British patients less-
than-appealing subjects
for clinical trials. Most pa-
tients in the United King-
dom aren't currently re-
ceiving the highest-quality
medical treatment, and so
clinical trials that compare
the average British patient
with a patient taking an


experimental drug simply
don't yield much useful
information.
Think about it. You
wouldn't want to conduct
a taste test of a new soft
drink by giving one test
group the new beverage
and another group a warm
glass of tap water. Ob-
viously those who tasted
the soda would react bet-
ter. Similarly, comparing
an experimental cancer
drug to the low-quality
treatments that many in
the United Kingdom re-
ceive won't reveal how
effective the new drug is.
That's why Avastin's
manufacturer has already
canceled the United King-
dom participation in four
clinical trials of the drug.
The company wasn't able
to find patients who were
already receiving the "gold-
standard" treatment neces-
sary for comparison. Two
major European drugmak-
ers have also cut back the
number of British patients
in their clinical trials.
For its part, NICE claims
that it refuses to cover only
those drugs it believes
have little or no value to
patients.
The facts suggest other-
wise. Just look at Brian
Turner, a 74-year-old Brit-
on who suffers from mac-
ular degeneration. This
disease causes deteriora-
tion of the eye and can
lead to blindness.
Turner lost sight in one
eye after the NHS denied
his initial request for Ava-
stin. The agency told him
that the treatment would
only be worth the govern-
ment's money if his other
eye became affected, ren-
dering him completely
blind.
As is often the case, the
NHS put money before the
well-being of British citi-
zens.
Luckily, many Britons
are beginning to fight back
against NICE. Among them
is Dorothy "Dot" Griffiths, a
British breast-cancer pa-
tient who organized the
advocacy group Fighting
for Herceptin in July 2005,
after NICE denied her the
life-prolonging cancer
drug. She finally gained
access to it after lobbying
Parliament to overrule the
initial NICE judgment.
This kind of injustice is
characteristic of govern-
ment-run healthcare sys-
tems around the world.
With health-care re-
form in America at the top
of agenda this election
season, it's more impor-

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Ryan rates highly with members


Editor:
You've seen the headlines in the paper, heard the
news on TV and felt the pinch at the gas pump: Our
economy is in a recession.
Most business have been taking a good, hard look at
their expenses, making cuts whenever possible, yet they
are continuing their membership in the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce. Our members clearly see good
leadership in John Ryan.
Being a member of the VACC is not only good for our
businesses, it is good for our city, county and state. We
buy local whenever possible. We keep our money circu-
lating in "our town."
John promotes local business like no one and has
been doing so for more than 10 years. Our community
and visitors rely on the VACC's Better Business De-
partment thousands of times each year, calling upon the
chamber to give references to business that meet the
standards that John and our chamber have set for busi-
ness doing business in our community.
There are about 1,100 VACC members, and we all see
firsthand how important John's efforts are to attract, pro-
mote and retain good businesses in our area. He enlists
the help and support of our chamber members, staff and
board of directors to fight for initiatives that promote
growth to our economy and to our businesses.
John makes tough decisions, weighing both sides of
an issue. His decisions err on the side of caution. His
decisions come from his love of our community, our
chamber and the betterment of his family as well as
ours.

Maybe his economy
is strong
Editor:
I used to like John Mc-
Cain because he wasn't a
typical Republican.


But I don't recognize
him anymore since he has
been sucked up and
repackaged by the same
machine that shoved Bush
down our throats. It is


obvious that he is in la-la
land if he thinks "the fun-
damentals of our econo-
my are strong."
Does he really believe
that one is not rich unless
they make over $5 million
per year? It is scary to think
that we may get another
president that is so out of
touch.

George Goethe
North Port

In with the new,
not the old
Editor:
I believe that Obama
and McCain are both good
men. We know that Mc-
Cain is a brave and honor-
able man. We knew that,
from the moment he re-
fused to leave a Viet-
namese prison camp just
because his father was a
high-ranking military offi-
cer.
When I listen to his
story, I want to believe he
knows the way. I want to
give him something back
for all he gave to us.
But I do not believe we
can afford this old warrior
in the White House. Tactics
and technology have
changed and we are not
the only country with this
new knowledge. War can
no longer be the only way
to solve the problems of
the world. We can't afford
to continue on this path,
either in money or the
bodies of our young.
McCain is out of touch
with the common man.
He states that you're not
rich until you have an


annual income of $5 mil-
lion. He states he won't
raise taxes on anyone. So
how do we pay for this
huge deficit?
He continues with the
Republican platform of
protecting the rich while
mortgaging the future of
our children and grand-
children.
I believe Obama has the
ability to lead us to new
insights, new knowledge
and new techniques. I
believe he has the ability to
draw us together as Amer-
icans so we can make our
country strong again. I
believe he has the inner
strength and the vision to
help us make the world a
safer place.

Melissa Wolford
Englewood
Just one tiny detail
Editor:
In response to the letter
to the editor entitled, "Mc-
Cain is against the wrong
things," I commend folks
who take the time to send
a letter to the editor. We all
have views that are not the
same, so we like to share
our own with others.
However, in doing so, it
is extremely important to
include the correct facts.
In the letter I am referring
to, the author stated, "Sen.
Obama is too much of a
gentleman to insist that
Sen. McCain admit he was
mistaken back in 2002 and
should have voted with
Barack in opposition to
the war." The fact is, Sen.

Then they stole the pamphlet


No response. I have a double whammy for you. The
South Venice thieves were out again. This time two men
were prowling around with flashlights at 3 a.m., driving
vehicles. And what happens when you call the sheriff's
department? They send you a public service aide with a
pamphlet with how to prevent this from happening
again.


Oily. In reference to
your cartoon on Wednes-
day, can you tell me of one
incident of an oil spill as a
result of an oil rig out in
the Gulf? Just one?
Pay up. Yes, I definitely
think that the council
members accused of Sun-
shine Law violations should
be paying their own attor-
ney's fees.
Dim. I'm sitting here
reading the newspaper,
and I can see fairly well,
but you have a big print-
out of a park that's pro-
posed and all the different
facilities that are going to
be there. I don't know why
you even bother putting in
these boxes with this infor-
mation in it. I couldn't
even see it with a magnify-
ing glass. I think it's very
frustrating.

Lti I I KS from Page4A
Obama was not a U.S. Sen-
ator until January 2005.
Sen. Obama was in the
state of Illinois Senate in
2002. Sen. McCain voted
in favor of the going for-
ward with the war.
Additional issues in this
letter are debatable and, of
course, as every story goes,
there is more than one
side to them.
The Internet is a great
source of information;


bers accused of Sunshine
Law violations, should we
pay their attorney fee? I
say no. It's their responsi-
bility. They were told. It
wasn't as though they
weren't enlightened to the
rules of the Sunshine Law.
I'm definitely against pay-
ing it.
I think that they should
be ousted and elect a new
city council, at least the
four under prosecution. I
hope they will step down.
Name calling. Every
time the publisher in your
paper gives his biased
views of the new city
council, I'm thinking, "Get
over it." The good old boys
were voted out and that
means permanently. Now
the publisher says he
doesn't have any idea of
that man up in Sarasota
getting his name in the
paper all the time. Hey
publisher, have you ever

health-care reform.

heard of political wanna-
bes? This wannabe loves to
see his name in the paper
all the time. He's a nobody
who wishes he could make
a name for himself. If I
knew him, I would tell him
what people are really call-
ing him, and it's definitely
not Tony.
Mercy. I'm absolutely
flabbergasted to read that
Andrea Mogensen has
racked up $200,000 worth
of lawyer's hours with our
Sunshine Laws case, and
there's probably more to
come.
On top of that, we have
the Boone firm represent-
ing Simmonds, I guess,
and some other firms
whose names I don't know
representing council mem-
bers. To top the cake, we
have the city footing the
bill.
This whole mess is
going to cost hundreds
and hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars. Lawyers
want to be paid; therefore,
they just say, "Oh come on,
let's hype this, blah, blah,
blah" because they get so


much for every hour as
they work on your case. I
strongly suggest that the
council people throw
themselves on the mercy
of the court and say, "Yes, I
did it. I throw myself on
your mercy. Please let's fin-
ish this now." That would
stop the clock ticking and
the lawyers. They could
then pay the fine and
squabble amongst them-
selves as to who pays the
lawyers.
This has gotten really
out of hand. I'm surprised
that people haven't been
inquiring about the cost of
this earlier than now.
No vote. Deal or no
deal? As a past president of
the South Venice Civic As-
sociation, I question why
membership is not privy to
the recent sale of water-
front property to Sarasota
County, for half a million
dollars.
By what privilege can
that South Venice Civic
Association board make
decisions of that magni-
tude without a member-
ship vote?
South Venice residents
beg for a definitive answer
and equitable representa-
tion on this subject.

POLICE BEAT

Woman jailed on
elderly assault
Nokomis resident Marie
Rose Beck was arrested
Tuesday on charges of rob-
bery and battery on a per-
son over 65 after assaulting
her 79-year-old neighbor
in the 900 block of Lindis
Lane.
A police report states
that Beck, 49, approached
an elderly man's residence
next door to her own near
Pop's Sunset Grill Tuesday
afternoon and requested
the man accompany her
back to Beck's residence.
When he declined, Beck
grabbed the man in a
"bear-type" hug in an
attempt to force him to her
home, the report states.
The elderly man man-
aged to wrestle himself
away and retreat toward
his downstairs laundry
room door where he took
out his phone to call police.
Beck then grabbed the
man's phone, and after a
brief struggle in which the
man was injured, walked
away with it, according to



Buchanan's

campaign chief

arrested again

BY CHRISTY ARNOLD
ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

Vern Buchanan's cam-
paign director resigned
after another DUI arrest
this weekend.
Ronald A. Turner, 39,
of the 6100 block of
Nutmeg Ave., in Sarasota,
was arrested late Saturday
night on charges of
DUI with a
previous
conviction,
DUI with a
blood-alco-
hol level of
.20 or high-
er, and dri-
ving while
license is
Turner suspended
or revoked.
Turner's blood-alcohol
level registered at .216 or
.205, according to the
arrest report.
A motorist notified
Sarasota County Sheriff's
deputies after seeing Turner
driving "all over the road,"
according to the arrest
report.
After stopping the cam-
paign director, the deputy
noticed Turner had blood-
shot and watery eyes,
slurred his speech and
swayed while standing.
Turner also couldn't explain
why he was north of Bee
Ridge Road, when he lived
closer to the bar he had just
left on Clark Road, states
the report.
Turner, formerly the
supervisor of elections in
DeSoto County, admitted
to the deputy that he
drank a glass of wine and
vodka. He had also taken a
hydrocodone pill, accord-
ing to the report.
Turner had difficulty
performing the field sobri-
ety tests, the deputy wrote
in the report, and later
tested at more than twice
the legal limit for blood-
alcohol level.
He was arrested on the
latest charges and was
released from the Sarasota
County Jail around 5:30
a.m. Sunday. He declined
to comment Monday
Buchanan's campaign
also declined to comment,


though they confirmed
Turner resigned Monday
morning. Turner's position
was like a special adviser,
said press secretary Sally
Tibbetts. There was no
decision yet on whether to
fill that position.
Turner pleaded no con-
test less than a month ago
in Manatee County after a
DUI arrest there in May.
He was sentenced to one
year of probation.

Growing pains: Terrapins down Venice in 5


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High School vol-
leyball team lost a heartbreaker
to Tampa Preparatory School 13-
25,29-27,18-25,25-20 and 15-11
Thursday night on the road.
It goes down in the books as a
loss, but not even the ultra-com-
petitive Brian Wheatley is con-
cerned about that.
"OK, so we got a loss. There's
no one that hates losing more
than I do, but besides that every-
thing else was positive," Wheatley
said. "We left our hearts out on
that floor and we grew up in that
match. We can look back down
the road and say we really got
better during that match."
Venice (3-1, 3-0 in 5A-12) took
a very talented team to five
games and could very well have
won the match. Tampa Prep (3-
0) is loaded with upperclass-
men, most of whom were part of
a team that fell to eventual state
champion Evangelical Christian
School in the Class 2A regional
semifinals last season.
Venice registered 147 team digs
in a game that featured fierce bat-
tles for nearly every point. Junior
outside hitters Emily Daniels and
Dorothy Rahal led the team with
37 and 28, respectively.
"We competed in every game.

and we win the match, so what
are you gonna do?" Wheatley
said. "It's definitely a growing up
process and we did that tonight."


Growing up
Venice had a chance to sweep
the Terrapins. The first game was
no contest as the Indians jumped


out to an 8-1 lead behind the ser-
vice of Autumn Duyn. The sopho-
more opposite side hitter regis-
tered six aces, two of them com-
ing in the first 10 points served.
Tampa Prep battled back in
game two, but it wasn't easy. The
Terrapins led 22-16 before Venice
started a 6-1 run to cut it to 23-
22. The Indians faced four game
points and the Terrapins faced
one before junior setter Caroline
Dillabough served up an ace for
a 29-27 Tampa Prep win.
Junior middle hitter Jillian
Allen (four kills), Daniels (six
kills) and Rahal (three kills) did
most of the work in game three
as Venice won 25-18 to take a 2-1
lead heading into game four.
Rahal finished with a team-high
20 kills, followed by Emily
Daniels with 16. Junior setter
Taylor Capasso had 62 assists.
Tampa Prep made some
adjustments in game four to
account for Venice's tip attack,
and rolled to a 25-20 win.
In game five, the Terrapins
started the ball rolling quickly,
taking an 8-2 lead. Venice fought
to within one at 11-10 before the
Terrapins finished them off 15-11.
"It's just a growing-up
process," Wheatley said. "We're
going to have many more five-
game matches this year, so this
game is just going to prepare us
for down the road."

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL SCOUTING REPORT



Venice's opponent this week: Braden River


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

School: Braden River High
School
District: 3A-12
Record: (1-0)
Mascot: Pirates
Colors: Maroon and silver
Game time: 7:30 p.m. at Venice
(Powell-Davis Stadium)

Last year
The Pirates opened their
inaugural varsity football season
with a 20-6 win over down-the-
street-rival Lakewood Ranch
High School. They would win
only two more games in 2007,
posting a 3-7 record. Game two
set the tone for much of the rest
of the season, as Venice pum-
meled the Pirates 28-0 on their
home field.
Braden River's first year was
marked by inexperience. Year
two should show some improve-
ment. Four starters on the offen-
sive line return, as does starting
running back Jajuan Bell. Last
year's starter at quarterback,
Willie McNeal, moved to wide
receiver this season and has
been replaced by Steve Fischer
under center.

Last week
Braden River came from
behind to win 14-7 on the road
at archrival Lakewood Ranch. It
was an emotional victory in
front of nearly 6,000 spectators.
Bell ran the ball 30 times for
209 yards and two touchdowns
- 145 yards and both touch-
downs came in the second half.
McNeal caught all five of Fischer's
completions for 55 yards.
The Pirate defense held the
Mustangs to less than 150 yards
of total offense.

How Braden River can win
Control the tempo of the
game and chew up the clock.
Bell is a big, strong back that
has shown he has no qualms
about carrying the ball 30 times
in a game. The Pirates offensive
line is undersized, but Venice
head coach John Peacock said
they have a mean streak and are
very physical.
Venice's defensive line has
struggled to stop the run in the
preseason and in game one. The
Indians allowed 4.6 yards per
carry against Riverview. Venice's
line was bigger in that game, too.
Braden River will also have to
avoid mistakes, especially in the
red zone. Bell's performance last
week was marred by two fum-
bles inside the five yard line. The


Pirates won't be able to get away
with that against a better team.

How Venice can win
Avoid a letdown.
The Indians are a heavy
favorite and they are at home,
but they're also coming off a big
win over a bitter rival in
Riverview High School. Peacock
expressed concern over a let-
down after practice Wednesday.
Venice can't afford turnovers


or silly penalties two things
that Venice struggled with
against overmatched opponents
in 2007 because the Pirates
are good enough to capitalize
and pull off the upset.

Coachspeak
"(Venice is) a good football
team. They're a real good foot-
ball team," Braden River head
coach Josh Hunter said. "They're
a fast, explosive team on offense,


a big, strong, physical defense.
They give everybody they play
fits. They're just a good football
team."

The bottom line
Braden River is going to move
the football on the ground. The
Venice defensive line has yet to
prove it can stop the run, so the
Pirates are going to run it right at
them in spite of their undersized
line.


The trouble for Braden River
is this. Their biggest player on
defense is about the same size as
Venice quarterback Trey Burton
- and they don't have the speed
to keep up with tailback Dri
Archer. Venice will score at will,
much like they did last year.
It will be close for a half, but
Venice will run away with it late.
Tripp's pick: Venice 31,
Braden River 10

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

GildaYasi, 91, ofVenice,
is "beary" happy.
Not only did she come
to like her adopted city of
Venice, but, she has found
a new hobby she makes
Teddy bears, mostly from
old mink jackets and coats.
Cozy and content in her
home in Marshfield, Mass., Yasi
came kicking and screaming to
Venice in the early 1980s after
her husband announced he had
purchased a home here.
"Frank, you didn't really buy
a home without me?" she said
to him at the time.
"It's in a very good neighbor-
hood," he replied.
She finally agreed to at least a
trial run in Venice, when their
children told her to consider the
move an adventure. With multi-
ple car and tire issues en route
to Venice, even the drive to
Venice was an adventure.
For five years, they lived in
the house without doing any-
thing to it because she thought
she might return to Massachu-
setts with or without him.
"I got so I liked it here," she
said.
Retired from a job she enjoyed
in the North, she went to the
Venice Community Center and
joined a basketmaking class.
She made baskets for several
years and then, about five or six
years ago, she went to a class on
Teddy bears.
"I was stunned and fascinat-
ed," Yasi said. "I had a fake fur
jacket in the closet and didn't
wear it, so I asked the teacher if
I could make a bear from that."
That teacher said "yes," but by
the time the next class session
began, there was a new teacher,
Linda Logan, one of the former
students in the bear class.
A year into the class, some-
one gave Yasi a mink. The mink
bears proved popular, and her
then neighbor, Tanya Sauppe,
suggested she join the Venice
Art Center so she could sell her
bears in its gift shop. She has
been selling them as fast as she
can make them ever since.
It takes her about a month to


A fake fur bear and a mink bear get along just fine at the home of Gilda and FrankYasi in Venice.


make a bear. The cost is $150 if
the customer supplies the mink.
That is usually the case as peo-
ple want to have their mother's
mink turned into an heirloom
bear, she said. If the mink had a
fancy lining, she uses that mate-
rial for the bottoms of the feet.
As artists need to sign their
work, Yasi signs hers by embroi-
dering her initials on a foot bot-
tom.
Every stitch is done by hand,
using a sharp leather needle.
Yasi said she uses a back stitch
to join the individual pieces, but
some stitchers use buttonhole
or other stitches.
She still goes to class,
although the class moved to
Venice Isles Mobile Home Park.
One of the ladies in her class is
a friend from the old days in the
basket class, Yasi said.
In addition to the bears she
makes for sale, she makes fake


fur bears that are donated to
benefit the Lions Club ofVenice.
"You can throw those in the
wash," she said. "It is not a good
idea to give mink to a child. The
fur is too delicate."
She uses polyester fiber-fill to
stuff the bears she makes.
While being interviewed for
this article, Yasi was stitching
away on a special bear for a
special man in her life (in addi-
tion to her husband).
A few years ago, she met
Steve Schutt, a professional
bear designer who was in Ven-
ice. In response to an e-mail
about their friendship, he
replied: 'As I work for the Boyds
Collection, Ltd., I find myself at
Celebration Corner in Venice
about once a year signing the
Teddy bears in their inventory I
design for the company. Gilda
attended one of those signing
several years ago. She politely


'I


hovered in the background as I
signed bears for customers.
During a lull she asked me to
look at her work and critique it.
She had all the basics mastered
so I gave her some advanced
construction ideas I felt would
improve her work. She wrote to
me for some clarifications. I
sent her a copy of a book I co-
authored with two friends that
has many diagrams explaining
the advanced techniques. She
has applied many to her work
and modified others to create
her own special look. Her ener-
gy and excitement for the art
form are obvious. It is a joy to
know her and watch her blos-
som."
She sends him cookies and
he sends letters, patterns and
bear-making advice.
"I wanted him to be brutally
honest," Yasi said about her ini-
tial meeting with Schutt.


Vmm


One letter from
Schutt was hand-
written while he
was waiting for a
plane. In it he
mentioned a trip
to California and
told her how his
book, "The Ultimate
I handbook for Making
Ih -ddy Bears," came about
Si1 d- a world tour, during
\\hic h he taught bear-mak-
ing
'I inj y Gilda and wish her
ill ith, best," he said in that
-ami i-mail mentioned
Another fan is a woman
in N okomis who has pur-
c hiied several bears as
Rgi It for friends.
The largest bear Yasi
made was about 18
inches tall and the
smallest was less
than one-third
that size. It is more
difficult to make
smaller bears,
which is why her
first teacher requir-
ed the students to
begin by making a little
b ar. Yasi made two tiny
patriotic bears. Neither is
made of fur.
"When I give a bear to
someone who already has one, I
try to make the new one a differ-
ent size," she said.
She also has been known to
add mink hats and muffs to her
bears.
"Bearly" keeping up with the
demand, Yasi also has a growing
collection of bear-related items,
including a large box in which
she keeps supplies. Always at
hand are Schutt's book and a
stack of letters and notes from
people who have received her
bears.
A few weeks ago, Sauppe
called Yasi to say there was a
mink stole for sale at the Good-
will store on the island. A few
minutes later, Yasi was there,
buying the stole for her bear
projects.
Little did she know in the
1980s that she would "bear" up
so well in Venice.

New stem cell therapy



helps pets find relief


Breakthrough therapy
now available at River
Forest Animal Hospital

FROM RIVER FOREST
ANIMAL HOSPITAL

Dr. Carolyn Kohn, River
Forest Animal Hospital,
Sarasota, is certified in one-
of-a-kind stem cell therapy
for dogs and cats suffering
with arthritic pain.
Credentialed for the Vet-
Stem Regenerative Cell
Therapy, Kohn treats arthritis
and tendon and ligament
injuries in dogs and cats. She
has performed three proce-
dures to date and is very
excited by the results.
San Diego-basedVet-Stem,
the nation's only company
offering veterinarians fat-
derived stem cell therapy,
has developed a procedure
that isolates stem and
regenerative cells from the
animal's own fat for a ther-
apeutic injection into the
injured tissue. The cells are


isolated and returned to
the authorized veterinari-
an for treatment of the
injured animal within 48
hours.
After having clients suc-
cessfully treat close to 3,000
tendon and ligament injuries
in horses, Vet-Stem has
nationally unveiled its online
veterinary training course to
small-animal veterinarians.
Once veterinarians complete
the credentialing course,
they will be able to use
VSRCs to treat arthritis, frac-
tures and tendon and liga-
ment injuries in dogs.
Since 2005, Vet-Stem has
worked with selected veteri-
narians who have treated
dogs with arthritis and ten-
don and ligament injuries.
Initial studies demonstrate
that administration ofVSRCs
into a joint significantly
decreases pain and improves
comfort, in most cases. The
duration of the benefit from
a single injection varies from
several months to nearly two
years.


Clinical trials studying the
use of VSRCs for arthritis in
dog elbows, hips and knees
have concluded with suc-
cessful results published
January 2008. Vet-Stem is
conducting studies on VSRC
therapy for internal medi-
cine conditions.
In horses, the therapy has
shown a return to prior level
of performance rate of 77
percent, 76 percent and 57
percent respectively in ten-
don, ligament and joint
injuries. Many horses, such
as 2006 U.S. Open Polo
champion Rio, have over-
come potentially career-
ending injuries allowing a
return to competition at
prior performance levels.
Currently, Vet-Stem has
trained more than 700 small
animal veterinarians on the
science and application of
stem cells to treat arthritis
and tendon and ligament
injuries.

Mobile spay/neuter



clinic can reduce



feral cat population


FROM THE ANIMAL
RESCUE COALITION

More than 60,000 feral or wild cats
live in Sarasota County.
A feral cat is an unsocialized cat
that is one or more generations
removed from a home environ-
ment. They often exist within
colonies of similar cats living in the
shadows of human communities.
Despite outward appearances, gen-
erations of domestication have left
these felines without many of the
natural adaptations necessary for a
life outdoors. These abandoned
animals become susceptible to dis-
ease and death, yet continue to
reproduce.
While cats pay for this overpopula-
tion problem with their lives, taxpay-
ers pay with their wallets. Across the
country, it costs on average $150 for
animal control to catch, house, feed
and eventually euthanize one animal.
A solution to this problem has arrived


in the form of the ARC Mobile
Spay/Neuter Clinic.
The Animal Rescue Coalition is a
not-for-profit organization whose
mission is to end the killing of adopt-
able dogs and cats in Sarasota and
Manatee counties by means of a
proactive spay/neuter program,
comprehensive adoption program,
and various other programs designed
to recognize the profound benefits to
people of animal companionship.
One Sunday every month, ARC's
mobile clinic opens it doors to pro-
vide free spaying and neutering to
feral cats within Sarasota and
Manatee counties.
September's Feral Cat Day will be
Sunday, Sept. 21, at Ashton Animal
Clinic. All cats must arrive at 8 a.m. on
the morning of the event. Cats MUST
each arrive in a feral cat trap.
For information on the feral cat
program and traps, call ARC at 957-
1955, ext. 5. It is strongly suggested to
call and reserve an appointment.

SEPT.12,2008RELIGION
SEPT. 12, 2008


BY MARY LINDSKOG
GUEST WRITER

Twenty-two people from
four Presbyterian churches
in Venice, Sarasota and
Bradenton spent one week
this summer on a mission
trip to Trinity Presbyterian
Church in Chinle, Ariz., on
the Navajo Indian Reserva-
tion. Five of the team mem-
bers were from Venice
Presbyterian Church. They
were led by Marge and
Frank Kaprive, who had
been on similar trips to
Chinle the three previous
years.
"The whole trip was out-
standing," Frank Kaprive
said. "We were able to do
some painting and repair
work in the manse in prepa-
ration for the arrival of a new
minister in September."
Members of the mission
team held Vacation Bible
School each morning in the
town of 5,000. Dottie Pfaff,
on her first mission trip, said
"The team members had
such good feelings for each
other. In addition to that, we
all wanted to do what was
best for the Indian commu-
nity. And we did!"
Pam Haskins of North
Port, also her first trip,
enjoyed working with the
teenagers in the Vacation
Bible School. Cris Anderson
of Englewood spent most
of her time helping with
Vacation Bible School, clean-
ing and painting the manse.

tion in Chinle, Ariz.


About the same time,
another mission group of 25
people went to Ouanaminthe,
Haiti, to help in a summer
camp for about 200 teen-
agers at Institute Universe
School. Three members from
Venice Presbyterian were
part of this group.
The Rev. Ruffin Stepp,
associate pastor, was on his
first mission trip as an adult.
He had been on mission
trips to several South
American countries earlier.
"I was particularly struck
with the gathering of about
200 people meeting under
the biggest mango tree I had
ever seen," he said. "We built
some very significant rela-
tionships the one week we
were there."
The Rev. Howard Taylor
and his wife, Gail, had
been on four previous mis-


sion trips to work with the
students at the school in
Ouanaminthe, but this year
they concentrated on orga-
nizing the library. In the
afternoons, children would
come to the library to hear a
story or work a puzzle. While
the Taylors were there, a
librarian was hired.
Stepp said plans were
being made now for several
mission trips next summer.
A third mission that has
captured the interest of
some members at the Venice
church is located in Guate-
mala. Venice resident, Frank
Ebetino, has headed the
effort to raise $5,000 for con-
struction materials for a
medical clinic in El Cortigo,
Guatemala. Over $12,000 has
been raised by interested

Extra details on the front of this home within the Lakes of Jacaranda offer a hint to extra details found within the home recently listed for sale by Realtor Wayne Welsh of the RE/MAX Alliance
Group in Venice.


Popular model listed at Lakes of Jacaranda


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

T he Victoria was just one of
many names used by J &J
Homes for what became
one of that builder's top- selling
floor plans.
With three bedrooms and
two baths, the J&J variation on
the great room plan also has a
spacious kitchen with eating
area and adjacent laundry room
off the two-car attached garage.


An enhanced variation of the
house was recently listed by
Realtor Wayne Welsh of the
RE/MAX Alliance Group in
Venice. An interesting aside
note on Welsh is that he con-
tributes 10 percent of every real
estate commission he earns to
the charity of his client's choice.
Past recipients have included
Big brothers/Big Sisters and
Habitat for Humanity.
Architectural details added to
the listed house include custom


plaster ceiling medallions and
moldings from Renaissance
Plaster of Venice and two nearly
wall-size framed mirrors in the
home's dining room. The hand-
carved wood frames are covered
in gold leaf.
The master suite, at the back
of the house, includes a 15-foot
by 17-foot bedroom, large walk-
in closet and a master bath with
twin sinks, tub and walk-in
shower.
Bedrooms two and three


share a bath and those three
rooms could be closed off as a
separate suite for elderly par-
ents or youngsters.
The present owner uses one
bedroom as a home office.
Storage is a feature of this
floor plan, with two small linen
closets off the second bath's
foyer and a spacious walk-in
pantry off the kitchen.
There also is another linen
closet in the master bathroom.
Windows have custom treat-


ments by Douglas and there are
hardwood floors throughout
most of the house.
In the attached two-car
garage, the air conditioning unit
hangs from the ceiling to pro-
vide more space for cars or stor-
age below.
Listed for $424,900, the
house, at 757 Silk Oak Drive in
the Lakes of Jacaranda, can be
seen by appointment.
For an appointment, call
Welsh at 234-6070.

A weekly se(


I Are the scallops returning
to Sarasota Bay? Page 4
)n of the Sun family of newspapers, serving readers from Sarasota to Fort Myers Beach









Fish don't know what kind of rod you have


A couple of friends
stopped by the
other day and I
showed off my new
home office. It only took
10 months to complete
- 9.75 months of
procrastination, a few
days of hiring handymen
to paint and lay the
flooring and another few
days putting together
the furniture. But it's
finally finished; it looks
great and I've entered
the procrastination stage
of turning my old office
into a spectacular
looking guest room. This
time, however, the
household CEO taps her
foot impatiently and
gives me the evil eye
whenever we discuss the
subject. I fear the
procrastination stage
will be short lived for
this project.
While showing off the
new office, I opened the
door to the walk-in
closet and one of my
buddies gasped, "Geez
Rod, you have more
stuff in here than most
fly shops." He stood
open-mouthed in the
doorway and gazed at
the two dozen racked,
ready-to-fish, fly fishing
rigs on the wall, the
shelves of fly boxes
holding thousands of
patterns, the bins of
spare reels and lines
and all the other fly-


,oIl C 11]1 Il ll'I I
related gear stored in
the closet. He simply
shook his head and
sarcastically asked if I
had enough stuff.
"Maybe," was all I could
manage. I didn't show
him all the gear in the
garage the old stuff I
don't use any more.
And I didn't even think
of showing him all the
spinning, bait casting
and offshore stuff stored
in the garage. Nor did he
get a chance to look at all
the fly tying materials
stored in plastic bins on
the shelves. I was a bit
embarrassed by it all. In
my defense however, this
is stuff accumulated over
a lifetime of fishing and
while I may have been a
bit obsessive about
accumulating it all, I've
slowed down quite a bit
and have quieted my
"want" glands.
Many of you reading
this also have uncon-
trolled "want" glands
when it comes to fishing
gear. I'm sure your


- lof an
om


garages and closets are
filled with the latest, the
best, the most innova-
tive and yes, costly gear.
I'll bet you pour through
all the new catalogs,
bookmark Internet sites
and visit local tackle
shops refining your wish
lists. I'll wager you
currently covet a high-
tech reel, rod, line or
bait and are just waiting
for the right time to
purchase it. It's just a
part of the sport. I
wonder how many
millions of dollars of
fishing equipment is
stored in the garages
and closets of Florida;
I'll bet it's a mind-
boggling sum.
But does the newest,
the most innovative and
the best equipment
make us better fisher-
men? Rationalization
makes me believe so, but
I know better. Rational-
ization is just the excuse
to buy more stuff and
good gear only makes
fishing a bit easier, not
necessarily more
productive.
So it was with ironic
interest that I read the
article boxed above,
which I stumbled upon
while surfing the Internet.
The irony is that his
kind of thing happens
fairly often. More big fish
have been caught with
Barbie, Snoopy and


other "toy" fishing rods
than are reported. I'll bet
many of you have a
similar story to tell. A
group of area charter
captains are planning to
hold an informal toy rod
competition. They will
purchase a Barbie,
Snoopy or other such
rods and fish them "as
is" exactly as they
come out of the package.


The captain with the
most or largest Charlotte
Harbor fish wins. It
sounds like terrific fun
and I'll bet some mon-
ster fish will be landed.
As soon as Orvis, Sage,
Loomis or Thomas &
Thomas break out their
lines of Snoopy fly rods,
I'll be one of the first to
buy. After all, I too want
to catch a big fish.


FWC sets meeting for Jacksonville Sept. 17-19


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission will meet at
the Hyatt Regency
Jacksonville Riverfront
hotel in Jacksonville
Sept. 17-19.
On Sept. 17, the
Commission will vote on
several new rules.
The first proposed rule
would limit the number
of freshwater turtles that
may be harvested each
day to a maximum of five
per person. FWC biolo-


gists believe that would
help protect freshwater
turtle populations while
the agency develops a
comprehensive manage-
ment strategy for
wildlife species that are
not regulated under
current rules.
Other proposals,

Patti and I are
freshly back from
our summer
getaway to Alaska, a
heat-beating trip that
we'd been looking
forward for many
months. How did it go?
In a word, wonderful. We
jammed as much
activity as possible into
two weeks. We traveled
by RV, by automobile, by
tour bus, by ferry and by
foot. We camped, we
stayed with friends, we
stayed at hotels ranging
from posh to pathetic.
We saw wildlife and we
caught fish (by my
count, I fished 10 of the
15 days of our trip,
sometimes two or three
different times in a day.)
Here's the fishing report.
For our first taste of
A ka, fillig w\e lented
a canoe to go lake
fid ing fo'i northern pike.
The three-mile hike each
ix -\ \Ilule (c -ii1vi i i,


fishing tackle and canoe
paddles, life vests and
seat cushions over
moderately hilly terrain
almost wiped out us
flatlanders, but the
fishing was good and we
caught 18 northern in
about two hours. Most
were small fish but I did
get four on flies and we
had a few decent fish.
After we'd finished
fishing we met a family
that had seen some very
large northern pike in an
adjacent lake. Figures.
Our next bit of fishing
was salmon fishing at
the mouth of a shallow
stream. It took an hour
or two to learn the ropes
(at first we even had to
ask other nearby
anglers what species
-,:,f fish \\e'd laided'
Once we got it-
figured out we
were able to
land three
diffeieir


species of salmon from
one location. We caught
chum, pink and silver
salmon for a total of 15
fish caught in an evening
and the next morning.
The smaller pink salmon
were 5 to 7 pounds; the
chums and silvers were
8to 12 pounds
apiece.

inch range and lost (

Return of the scallops?


W en I wrote in
this space last
year about
increased sightings of
bay scallops in Sarasota
County waters, I don't
think anyone I spoke
with could anticipate
what happened a few
weeks ago. Over 60
volunteers in 31 boats
participated in a
scallop search hosted
by Sarasota Bay Watch,
a newly-formed non-
profit group that seeks
to educate and engage
citizens on the restora-
tion and preservation
of Sarasota Bay.
They found 947 bay
scallops. That's 418
more than the 529
scallops that volunteers
with Tampa Bay Watch
found in that bay last
year. And those 529
were seven times more
scallops than the
Tampa Bay group had
found in any
single year
since they'd ,,
started &-. -
their
search- 14
es in 11
1993.
So
people -
who care iQ"
about !
these things
were fairly
excited about the 947
scallops. If that fails to
set your mind on fire,
think of the bay scallop
as a more local version
of the Florida panther
- a symbol of a
bygone Florida. (The
bay scallop is emblem-
atic enough of Sarasota
to have been the model
for the Van Wezel
Performing Arts Hall.
Take a close look next
time you drive east on
the Ringling Bridge.)
There were once
enough scallops to
sustain a fishery here in
Sarasota County within
memory if your
memory goes back a

Working the Harbor's many tidal creeks


X Though we didn't get
as much rain as
any other areas of
Florida, we still got some
good rain over the course
of the last couple weeks. All
you have to do is go out-
side at dusk and the
overwhelming volume of
mosquitoes will remind
you that the ground is
saturated. Too much rain is
definitely a problem, but
typical summer patterns
with a few good storms
mixed in can lead to some
decent fishing opportuni-
ties. Growing up as a kid,
we would head to the
spillways when the water
was flowing, and that in
itself is a topic worthy of
discussion. Even better, if
you like fishing in and
around the mangroves, the
many tidal creeks spread
throughout the Harbor can
provide some interesting
opportunities during rainy
season as small prey
species as well as oxygen
rich water is flushed
through the creek systems.
Just like anything, gamefish
don't like to work any
harder for a meal than they
have to and they'll stage at
creek mouths, particularly
on an outgoing tide,
waiting for an easy meal. If
you happen to time it right
and be in one of these
spots at the beginning of
the outgoing tide, you're
odds are going to improve.

the tide is about to switch
and that first flush is when
smaller prey species get
caught up in the initial flow
and really turns on the bite.
There are tidal creeks
throughout the Harbor and
it's surrounding bays and
sounds. In fact, there are so
many that it's probably
impossible to even find
them all, let alone try to
fish them. That's one of the
great things about fishing
here, there's just so much
ground to cover. I am
looking forward to explor-
ing more, but at this point,
there are three areas that I
have found to hold good
creek systems.
First, I like working the
east side from Ponce Inlet
all the way to Alligator
Creek. In addition to being
close to the ramp at Ponce
Park, the shoreline provides
a good lee in case the wind
blows out of the east and
the outside bar helps keep
the wind at bay if it decides
to blow from the west. Next,
it's tough to beat the west
\\all. There are ridal creeks

you'll find a bunch of good
tidal creeks towards the
back of Turtle Bay. In these
three areas, there are plenty
of spots to keep you busy
for quite some time.
Due to the heat, I like to
fish early this time of year
and I believe there are
some good early morning
outgoing tides this week.
Keep in mind that in
addition to holding fish,
mangroves also hold a fair

Write your own (safe) boating story


During my annual
three week
walleye trip to
Lake Erie, two Michigan
people were killed in
separate boating
incidents. One was an
unfortunate father
towing a four-year-old
on a tube. The father
was not wearing a life
jacket and jumped
overboard to assist the
child who was wearing
a life jacket. The father
drowned and the child
was safe. Any lessons to
be learned here?
The other drowning
involved a solo fisher-
man who was overdue
returning from his
outing. His boat was
found drifting empty,
except for the man's
shoes, socks, watch and


{ilI [iu :i I









wallet, which were lying
in the bottom of the
boat. Search crews
found the man's body
the next day. As I was
trying to figure out what
happened, it dawned
on me that there were
many possible scenar-
ios. Perhaps he was
warm and decided to
jump overboard for a
swim. Perhaps he
snagged his favorite lure


on a stump and jumped
in to retrieve it. Maybe
after storing his valu-
ables, he stood up to
remove his clothing and
rocked the boat causing
him to loose his balance
and fall overboard.
Other possibilities
include a line snagged
on his prop, a sheared
pin, running aground
and many others.
This is where you, the
reader, can become the
writer. You can write
your own boating story
by entering your view of
what happened to the
unfortunate fisherman.
You can simply send me
your scenario and I will
embellish it and write a
story for you. There is
just one requirement.
Since I am a Power


Squadron Safety Officer,
I will have to insist that
you have the fisherman
put on a life jacket
before he jumps over-
board. I will even write
the first line for you.
"Seeing the potential
danger presented by
entering the water, the
man put on his life
jacket before safely
storing his valuables
and jumping over-
board." Uh-oh, wait a
minute: If we have him
in a life jacket, then he
probably wouldn't
drown. Heck, that
changes the ending and
ruins our entire story.
Tell you what. Lets not
write about this unfor-
tunate fisherman, but
instead let's switch to
your firsthand experi-


ences. I am certain my
fishing and boating
readers encounter
situations that fellow
readers will enjoy
sharing. Let's see, how
should you begin?
"Seeing the danger at
hand, I assessed the
situation to establish
priorities before spring-
ing into action. Recog-
nizing the value of my
shoes, watch and wallet,
my first action was to
remove them and see
that they were securely
stored. Since there was
no value in my life or
that of my crew, I didn't
bother to have anyone
put on life jackets before
I boldly jumped into the
water." Does that sound
ridiculous? Then why
does it happen over and


over again?
Drowning is the
leading cause of
boating fatalities and in
over 80 percent of the
fatalities the victim was
not wearing a life
jacket. What will you
do at the first sign of
danger? If you put on a
life jacket, odds are you
will share your story
with my readers and
me. If you choose to
not put on a life jacket,
that'll be OK too. If I
hear of your demise on
the news, I promise to
do a story about the
incident. Gotcha
covered both ways. The
choice is yours.
Bill Hempel is the
Assistant Safety Officer
for the Peace River
Power Squadron.

The challenge of fly fishing from a kayak


ly fishing from a
kayak is a blast
has to be one of
the stealthiest modes
of covering water on a
skinny flat. A kayak's
low profile and nearly
silent propulsion
allows an angler to
approach fish like no
other boat can. Howev-
er, it has its own set of
problems and if they
aren't dealt with, they
make fishing a frustrat-
ing experience.
The first problem a
kayak fisherman faces
is rod storage, especial-
ly if there is more than
one fly rod onboard. I
have a tube bolted
along the bow section
of my kayak so I can
slide a rigged fly rod
into it. The butt of the
rod is held by a strap.
This system works
great and is very
secure. Many kayaks
have molded-in rod
holders that work great
for spinning rods but
are iffy at best for fly
rods. There are a
number of rod holders
on the market designed
for fly rods that work
well as long as they
face to the rear and
point the rods back at a
low angle. Any rods
sticking up can cause
casting difficulties,
especially in the wind.
Fly line management
is another issue to be
overcome. There is so
little room in the
cockpit of a kayak that
anything in the way
will literally be in the
way of fly line -
including an angler's
shorts. Fly line catches
the hems of loose
fitting shorts and
prevent the line from


shooting out during
the cast. A damp towel
place over the angler's
lap and over anything
else that may snag a fly
line is often the best
solution. I imagine a
stripping basket of
some sort would also
work.
Because the angler is
in a sitting position
when he casts, things
like chest packs,
forceps hanging from a
shirt pocket and other
attachments also tend
to catch fly line. It's
best to remove any-
thing that will hinder a
cast.
Stripping the fly to
the boat will also take
an adjustment or two
because of the sitting
position. You may have
to raise your hands to
accomplish the action
and ensure the fly line
is placed inside the
boat an unnatural
action. And you'll have
to accomplish all this
while balancing a
paddle on you lap.
Most anglers will
want to cant the kayak
so a cast can be made
in a natural manner. A
right-handed caster
will find it difficult
casting to the right
while sitting in the
boat. A keel-rigged
kayak makes canting
the boat easy, but one
without a keel will take
a backstroke with the
paddle to position the
boat. Again, not a big
deal but an extra step
nonetheless.
Visibility is another

flat is an asset.

issue when sight
fishing out of a kayak.
Its low profile limits
how far an angler can
see into the water at a
distance. Fly fishermen
work at short range -
the length of a cast -
so it's imperative a fly
fisher be able to see a
fish from a distance in
order to set up the cast.
The saving grace is the
low profile also pre-
vents a fish from
spotting the angler
from a distance. But
when fishing from a
kayak, I always feel like
I'm missing something
and wish for a greater
range of visibility.
Apparently some boats
are stable enough to
allow an angler to
stand in. My 14-foot
Tarpon will allow me to
stand supposedly -
but coordination and
balance are not my
best suits.
I usually get out of
my boat when fishing a
shallow flat I know
holds fish. Wading
affords me better


visibility, but that poses
two problems. If I
anchor or tie my kayak
to the mangroves, I
walk away from it and
then have to wade back
when I finished fishing
- often a long way
back. So I usually
tether the boat to my
waist and pull it behind
me as I wade. It works
great most of the time


unless the wind or tide
is at my back. Then the
boat slues around in
front or to the side of
me making casting a
problem, especially if
another rod is sticking
up from the kayak.
A neat solution to
this problem and one
that doubles as a
stripping basket,
keeping loose line out


of the water and from
underfoot is to rig a
line along the gunnels
of the boat with a clip.
Unclip the line and
place it around your
waist while standing in
the middle of the boat
and then clip it back to
the boat. As you wade
forward the boat is

A hot time at the Venice Municipal Pier


W ow! The fishing
has been
fantastic at the
Venice Municipal Pier. It's
not happening every day,
but it is most days. The
end of August was
exceptional. Two 40-inch-
plus king mackerel were
caught on two straight
days unusual for
August. In addition,
Spanish mackerel were so
thick that blacktip sharks
were attacking them off
and on for a few days.
Many keeper man-
grove snapper were
caught. A few flounder,
redfish, ladyfish, snook,
trout and Key West
grunts were also caught.
The fish were caught on
"Tuffies" (brined, vacu-
um sealed greenbacks),
live and frozen shrimp
and chunks of fish for the
larger predators.
One cast netter pulled
up about seven small
sheepshead in one cast.
Another cast netter
snagged a Spanish
mackerel on the side of
his net. If you're coming
to our pier, here are a few
helpful hints: The pier is
free. No license is
necessary. There are
several fish cleaning
stations on the pier.
Remember; do not feed
the birds. They don't
need our help; the water
is loaded with bait.
Please clean up when
you're finished fishing.


Getting back to the
sheepshead: I'm getting a
bunch of reports about
their abundance lately.
This is great news,
because last season the
fishing was way off.
Many visitors come to
our part of Florida every
winter and early spring to
fish for these tasty fish.
Don't forget to go
fishing a day or two
before a tropical storm or
hurricane hits our general
area. About 10 years ago, I
fished the surf when a
storm was out in the Gulf.
I caught reds one after
another for over an hour.
Many of my friends have
had the same type of
experiences. We'll talk
again next time.

Sheepshead. He is a

Hunting Istokpoga's giant water lizards


he gator count for
Lake Istokpoga in
1998 was over 3500
for 28,000 acres of lake.
That's a lot of gators. On
our guide trips, the
newcomers to Florida
fishing enjoy seeing
these big water lizards
and taking pictures of
them as well as other
wildlife. There are still
plenty of them out and
we had a permit to
harvest some. Also,
dyerguideservice.com
has other gator permits
for the Kissimmee River.
The method used to
catch these big guys was
as follows: We used a 8-
and 10-foot Shakespeare
Ugly Stick surf rods with
the new DH5000
Wavespin reel by Doug
Hannon and the Shake-
speare Spinning Reel. I
called Cindy Arnold of
Innovative Textiles who
makes Power Pro
Braided line and asked
what they made that
would hold a big gator
and she sent me a spool
of 150-pound test, 30-
pound diameter Power
Pro and it did the job.


What the hunters do is
get as close to the gators
as possible and cast
beyond the gator using
long surf rods with
treble hooks and weight
on the end of the line.
Then bring it back to the
gator and set the hook.
Then the fight is on.
These big water lizards
will pull the boat around
with ease. To get the
gator close enough to
harpoon sometimes
takes 1 to 2 hours. Once
they harpoon the gator,
they have a little more
control. Then they can
get him up for the kill.
The gator we got on a
Friday night was 11-
foot, 3-inches long and
weighed between 450
and 500 pounds and was
a chore getting it in the
boat. The one we
harvested on Saturday
night was a 9 feet, 6
inches and that's still a
lot of gator.
The first thing we did


when the kill was made
was to tape the gator's
mouth shut and tie the
feet back, because if it
comes back to life -
and sometimes they do
- "all hell breaks loose."
Well, on these Friday
and Saturday nights, we
had almost 21 feet of
shoes, belts and purses.
There are processing
centers all over the state
that buy the gators for
their hides and meat. The
gator meat is excellent
eating. Of course, every-
one knows of alligator
shoes. They are made
from the underneath or
belly part of the gator.
All the rain we've had
has really helped all our
lakes here in Central
Florida and fishing is
good. Fishing with the
flipping method for bass
is really on now at Lakes
Josephine, Istokpoga
and Arbuckle. To rent a
cabin, boat or guide, or

Florida Outdoor Writers Association conference


Yesterday marked
the start of the
four-day-long
Florida Outdoor Writers
Association fall confer-
ence. This year, the event
is being held at the Best
Western Waterfront
Hotel in Punta Gorda. It's
an honor to host this
conference in Southwest
Florida, and an opportu-
nity to show off our
lovely little strip of
shoreline.
The FOWA conference
is not likely to get much
attention from the
conventional news
sources. Lately, Florida
media people have
dedicated every written
or spoken word to
fomenting hurricane-
mania. They have no
time for news where you


I ) 'gIII: Ih'0
can't speculate about
danger or disaster.
Whew, I'm glad I got rid
of that resentment. My
therapist would approve.
Anyway, I guess it is up
to me to give you a feel
for this ongoing event.
FOWA is a longstand-
ing venerable organiza-
tion the oldest state
writing association in
the U.S. But don't get the
wrong impression. Its


1:111" Itl l 1 10 N J F., ILI


members are not a
bunch of self-impor-
tant snooty-nosed
writers. No way. In
fact, this associa-
tion is more a
collection of
congenial goof-
balls who have
spent too much
time in the sun.
Yes, there are some
extremely talented
members of FOWA.
But please, don't tell that
to them.
One thing that has
changed over the years is
the expanded spectrum
of members and their
related interests. At one
time, FOWA was basical-
ly just fledgling journal-
ists and book authors.
Now, their membership
includes photographers,


with almost every
observable occurrence
that happens without
a permanent roof
overhead. Plus, the
t organization
avidly supports
efforts to keep
Florida in great
environmental
condition for the
rest of the world to
enjoy.
Personally, I
joined FOWA six years
ago because I wanted to
see what "real" outdoor
writers looked like. I
bought my first Colum-
bia fishing shirt for that
year's conference award
dinner. I wanted to fit
right in, you know, kind
of sneak under the radar.
I got home from the
event and found the


price tag still dangling
from my collar. Gee, I
wonder if they knew I
was a new guy.
Tommy Thompson is
the current executive
director of FOWA. And
no, he is not the former
Governor of Wisconsin.
They share the same
name, but our Tommy
doesn't receive free
healthcare for life, or
other government
benefits. He's taller, too.
This year the confer-
ence is packed to the
seams with activities.
From the annual fishing
and SKISH casting
contests to helpful
seminars on improving
the quality of my pho-
tography and advice

another, while Patti
caught two nice pink
salmon. Our guide
shared some good
information that proved
helpful later in our
vacation.
We then took a rare
day off from fishing and
spent it viewing wildlife
in Denali National Park.
We saw grizzly bears,
moose, caribou, Dall
sheep, golden eagles,
willow ptarmigan,
snowshoe hares and
even a coyote on a day-
long bus tour that I
would highly recom-
mend to anyone.
Next we headed out
into the bush, traveling
30 miles on a gravel
road to try to add
another species to our
list. Our travel was
rewarded with the
capture of nearly two
dozen arctic grayling on
fly while fishing in small
roadside streams. These
fish were mostly small,
but we caught a few
medium-sized speci-
mens while swatting at
swarms of voracious
mosquitoes.
We next visited a fly
fishing only catch-and-
release trophy trout
stream where I man-
aged to land a beautiful
20-inch rainbow. I saw
other, larger fish that
were too smart. We then
popped about 15
salmon back at the
same salmon creek we'd
hit a couple of days
before, then spent a day
and a half traveling to a
small coastal town
called Cordova that lies
some 100 miles south-
east of Anchorage. Our
friends Dan and Shelley
hosted us at their
wonderful seaside
home for several days
during which we caught
quite a few silver
salmon, and I added a
dolly varden to the
species count. We also
hiked in to a series of
mountain lakes where
we took time out from
admiring the stunning
view to catch a few
cutthroat trout, adding
the eighth and final
species to our total.


Our final tally: Over
100 fish caught between
Patti and me eight
different species. All
released, except three
silver salmon that we
had smoked and
canned for the trip
home. Now we've got a
problem: We want to go
again. If anyone who
reads this is planning a
trip to Alaska and would
like more details, shoot
me an e-mail.
Let's go fishing!

\ATERLI E PHT,:,S e. RALPH ALLE,- APPLY FOR SPECIAL-
OPPORTUNITY SPRING
A dolly varden (char) taken on fly: the TURKEY HUNTS FROM
fish was approximately 15 inches. SEPT. 9 OCT. 14


_The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission will begin
accepting 2009 special-
opportunity spring
turkey hunt applications
at 10 a.m. Sept. 9. The
deadline for submitting
applications is midnight
Oct. 14.
Applications may be
submitted at www.
wildlifelicense.com,
county tax collectors'
offices or at any license
agent. A random drawing
decides who will receive
the coveted permits. To
apply, hunters can obtain
application worksheets at
www.MyFWC.com/
hunting and at all FWC
regional offices.
Demand for these
.r *. hunts is typically greater
than the number of
available permits, but
hunters can increase
their chances of being
selected by submitting as
many $5 nonrefundable
applications as they like.
Successful applicants
pay a permit fee of $50 to
-$175, depending on the
special-opportunity hunt
area selected.
Participation rules limit
_out-of-state hunters to
one permit per hunt.
The FWC created
.special-opportunity
spring turkey hunts for
sportsmen looking to
take an Osceola, the
"crown jewel" of the
turkey hunter's Grand
Slam. The FWC designs
special-opportunity
turkey hunts to take place
on large tracts of land,
with great habitat,
... healthy turkey popula-
tions and a limited
number of hunters.
.. The Osceola is a highly
prized subspecies of wild
turkey, found only in
peninsular Florida, south
of and including Dixie,
Gilchrist, Alachua,
Union, Bradford, Clay
and Duval counties. All
Shunts take place within
the Osceola turkey's
home range.

call these "humpies" you Osceola turkey hunts,

about selling my scrib-
bling. The well-laden
plates at conference
lunches and dinners
mean I will have to do
extra wade fishing to lose
weight but enough
about my gains. You are
invited to bring your sons
and daughters to Fisher-
man's Village Saturday


from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. for
the "Hook Kids on
Fishing Education Event."
Many thanks go out to
Charlotte Harbor Visitors
Bureau and numerous
corporate sponsors. The
Visitors Bureau recog-
nized the significance of
attracting this gathering
to our area. Why is it
important to you? Well,
the attendees will
undoubtedly return
home to their own corner


of Florida and publish
articles and photos about
their experiences in
Punta Gorda. It's an
economic booster shot
that will benefit every-
body in our area.
FOWA could easily
serve as simply an end
destination for moldy
outdoor journalists -
kind of a "good old boys
club" where members sit
back and brag about
their accomplishments.


Instead, this organization
focuses on the future.
They hand out scholar-
ships and awards.
Looking forward makes
for a large and lively
membership. FOWA is
"fun" in four letters.
For me, this associa-
tion was an excellent
starting point. I met
some icons of the
industry. I learned some
valuable information
about publishing and


picture-taking. Most
importantly, my dream to
chronicle my misadven-
tures in saltwater fishing
became a reality. It was
quite a switch from my
former job writing radio
ads for politicians. Hey,
you should give outdoor
writing a shot. Maybe
you will be Florida's next
famous outdoor writer!
Look, if I can do it,
anybody can I still
type with two fingers.


If you are interested in
FOWA membership (or
corporate sponsorship),
or you want to see more
information about this
year's conference, check
out the Florida Outdoor
Writers Web page at

RedSnook always a


The fourth and final
leg of the 2008 Maverick
Boats Flatsmasters
Series will be held
September 13 and 14 at
Harpoon Harry's,
Fishermen's Village,
Punta Gorda. The
Flatsmasters Series,
now in its eighth year, is
considered one of the
premier inshore fishing
tournaments in the
Florida. Over 95 differ-
ent teams have compet-
ed in the 2008 tourna-
ment series. The fourth
leg of the series, The
RedSnook Challenge,
requires teams to catch,
weigh, and release a
legal redfish and snook
for a combined weight
total. The entire field
will fish on Saturday.
After Saturday's results,
the top five teams by


weight will be invited
back to compete on
Sunday in The Flats-
masters RedSnook
Shootout where each
team has a SunSports
TV cameraman
onboard recording all
the action. Footage
filmed over the tourna-
ment weekend will be
produced into an hour-
long Flatsmasters TV
Show, which will air on
The SunSports TV
Network later this year.
Weigh-in on Saturday is
from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
and all five Shootout
teams will weigh in on
Sunday at 3:30 p.m. All
Weigh-Ins are open to
the public and held at
Harpoon Harry's in
Fishermen's Village.
The RedSnook Chal-
lenge is the last event


challenge
for teams to earn points
for the Flatsmasters
Bimini Big Game Resort
Team of the Year Award,
which rewards the team
with the most points at
the end of the year with
an all expense paid
weekend trip to the
Bimini Big Game Resort
in Bimini, Bahamas. It's
also the last opportunity
for teams to qualify for
championship points.
Only the top 50 teams in
points will be invited to
fish in the Flatsmasters
Championship on
October 18 and 19 at
Harpoon Harry's.
For more information
regarding the Flatsmas-
ters Series, contact
tournament headquar-
ters at 941-637-5953 or
go online to www.
flatsmasters.com.


KAYAK
From page 7

pushed sideways in
front of you (perpen-
dicular to the direction
you're facing). This way
you can cast in front,
make a normal strip-
ping motion and the
fly line neatly coils in
the cockpit of the
kayak. No more
pushing the boat out of
the way, stepping on
fly line and having the
line catch on seagrass.
I own two kayaks: A
sit-in model and a sit-
on-top model. I much
prefer fishing from the
sit-on-top model. It
makes getting in and
out so much easier,
especially if I have to
do so in thigh-deep
water. Because I like to
get out of the boat and


wade, it makes the
process simpler.
Fly fishing from a
kayak is a great way to
cover water; it's enjoy-
able, it's quiet and it
allows for a more
intimate connection
with the environment.
Here's an event that
sounds like fun:

CALUSA
PADDLE & FLY
FISHING CHALLENGE
The Calusa Paddle
and Fly Fishing Chal-
lenge is an informal
event that benefits the
Randell Research
Center in Pineland. It
is open to paddle
fishing/fly anglers of all
abilities. Good sports-
manship, camaraderie,
and the desire to have
fun are required to
enter this unique
event!

E everyone
E o has a story. Some may be
m-nore interesting than
others, but every person has
experiences which affect their
life and those of others in
countless ways.
One of the most interesting
stories I have encountered in
an area rife with interesting
people and their stories is the
story of Pieter Kohnstam who
was a child in the era of Hitler.
A few years ago, Kohnstam
finally sat down to write the
story of what it was like to be a
child in those terrible times
when, as Jews, his family had
to literally flee their birth coun-
try in order to live.
His book, 'A Chance to Live"
recounts the good times and
the bad times, his friendship
with Anne Frank, with whom
he played on a playground
near the apartment building
where they lived, and then his
family's flight from Nazi tyran-
ny and, ultimately, his arrival in
the United States.
Not just an interesting read,
Kohnstam's book is an impor-
tant book for it adds to the his-
tory of that era while also
ensuring that people do not
forget the atrocities and hor-
rors of those days.
Last year, Susan and Pieter
Kohnstam went to Holland to
see the book published in
Dutch as his words literally
began to take flight so that it
might be read by so many
more people around the world.
This month, the book has
earned more acclaim. It is a
finalist in the Best
Biography/Autobiography cat-
egory of the Florida Publisher's
Association annual contest to
select the best books published
in Florida. The awards will be
presented Saturday evening,
Sept. 13, at the Helmsley
Sandcastle Hotel on Lido
Beach in Sarasota.
I have read the book. My
money is on Kohnstam to win.

Clyde Butcher photographs to be featured

at Southwest Florida Museum of History


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice photographer Clyde
Butcher gets around. Currently
he is the star attraction at the
Southwest Florida Museum of
History.
From now through the end
of October, the museum is
featuring a display of his
large format photos -
"Visions of Florida A Clyde


Butcher Retrospective."
On Oct. 8 he will be the fea-
tured author at the museum's
monthly author event.
Sometimes compared to the
late Ansel Adams who also
worked in black-and-white,
Butcher has won countless
awards and international
acclaim since moving to
Southwest Florida and concen-
trating on nature photography.


He uses a large format camera
in his work and large format
enlargers, which he made him-
self and keeps in his Venice
studio where he creates his
original silver gelatin pho-
tographs. His home is near the
Big Cypress Swamp where he
maintains a gallery.
So involved with nature,
Butcher treks right into that
swamp for many of his photos


and, each year on Labor Day
weekend, leads cadres of fans
into that swamp to experience
some of what he experiences in
the swamp and in other
natural habitats.
The museum, at 2300 Peck St.
in downtown Fort Myers.
Admission is $9.50 per person
for adults, $8.50 for seniors and
$5 for children. The museum is
open Tuesday through Saturday


Clyde Butcher checks every square
inch of one of his large photos.
from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
It is closed on Sunday and
Monday. For more information,
call 239-332-5955 or
visitwww.cityftmyers.com/
attractions.

'Welcome Back From Iraq' concert is Saturday


By MARIE MERCHANT
ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR
What better way to honor
the men and women who risk
their lives to keep America
safe and free than spending a
September afternoon in the
Florida sunshine listening to
live music with family and
friends while raising money
to help the veterans when
they return home?
"Welcome Back From Iraq,"
a concert to benefit returning
Iraq war veterans, is noon to 8
p.m. Saturday at the Charlotte
County Fairgrounds, 2333 El
Jobean Road (State Road 776),
Port Charlotte.
The concert features
Twinkle and Janid along with
local bands, The Armadillo
Band, ReBirth, Carnival of
Soul and The Jam Band. All
the artists have refused pay-
ment and are donating their
performances.
Veterans and active mem-
bers of the military are free
with military ID.
Twinkle, also known as
Schascle, hit No. 8 on the
country charts with "Southern
Girl" and has opened for The
Outlaws, Stevie Ray Vaughan
and Aerosmith. She will be
touring this fall with
Dickey Betts.
Janid, an R&B recording
artist from New York, has two
CDs out on the Dead Ninja
label, Goddess and ONE. She
will be also be appearing
in the upcoming "Bare
Knuckles" film and has been
a guest cartoon star on "The
Simpsons." She will also be
taping her performance
for an upcoming DVD.
Port Charlotte's Carnival
of Soul will be debuting their
new single, "Beautiful Bird,"
a song written about the
Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack.
Magician Jimmy Rock, from
the 2007 season of "America's
Got Talent," will also be
performing throughout
the afternoon.


The "Welcome Back From
Iraq" concert's goal is to help
returning veterans and fami-
lies from the armed services
by donating the proceeds
from the event to local orga-
nizations.
"The idea is for all the
money to go to different orga-
nizations that will help some
of the vets coming back, dis-
abled or already here," said
Tony Rotondo, owner and
promoter of Concerts From
The Heart LLC, which put the
show together.
"The big thing that influ-
enced me was my that my son
wanted to join the Marines
and go to Iraq and he didn't
make the physical. His best
friend went over and got shot,
and he's suffering from post
traumatic stress disorder and
seeing this thing with Eric
(Hall), I don't want to see it
again," Rotondo said.

'Forever Broadway'


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER
Venice Theatre's Cabaret
presentation of "Forbidden
Broadway" serves up mayhem
and laughter as four talented
actors bring to life parodies
of former and contemporary
Broadway musicals and
entertainers.
"Forbidden Broadway" was
created and written by Gerard
Alessandrini. Michael Newton-
Brown directed Venice Theatre's
offering and is on-hand to
welcome theatergoers before
the show begins.
In just under two hours, cast
members Bobbi Eschenbach,


Heather Kopp, Charles McKenzie
and Craig Weiskerger take turns
acting the parts and singing the
songs of well-known plays and
personalities.
All four are highly talented and
engaging as they deliver punch
lines and songs, which often
causes outburst of uproarious
laughter from the audience.


serves up
The program begins with the
cast singing from "Forbidden
Broadway" and "Chicago."
In the next vignette, Kopp
swoops on stage dressed as a
grown-up version of Annie,
bushy red hair and all, smoking
a cigarette. She sings words
bemoaning her fate of now
being a 30-year-old Annie to th
tune of the play's theme song,
much to the audience's delight.
The show goes through rendi
tions from "Into the Woods,"
"Carol Channing," "Chita/Rita,'
"Cats," "Liza," "Wicked,"
"Mandy," "Les Miserables,"
"Phantom of The Opera,"
"Mamma Mia," "Rent"

Venice circus owner enshrined posthumously


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Two area circus giants were
enshrined in the International
Circus Hall of Fame at Peru,
Indiana, this summer.
One, Thomas Robert "Tommy"
Hanneford" of Venice, was the
owner of the second largest cir-
cus in America and the largest
circus remaining in the area, the
Royal Hanneford Circus. Since
the death of Hanneford in 2005,
the circus has been run by his
widow, Struppi Hanneford. In
past years, people driving north
of Venice on U.S. 41 could occa-
sionally get a glimpse of
Hanneford circus trucks and gear
at the Hanneford Circus property
on the east side of the street in
the area of Osprey. Today the cir-
cus operates out of offices on
Gulf Gate Drive in Sarasota.
The other inductee was
Austria native Franz Furtner who
was known as Unus, the man
who could stand on his forefin-
ger. He too was enshrined
posthumously. Taking his trick's
secret with him, Furtner died in
1994 in Sarasota, where he had
owned a motel.
In 1979, the hall of fame
moved to Peru, Indiana, from
Sarasota, where it was founded
in 1957, two years before The
Greatest Show on Earth left that


city to come to Venice. The show
wintered in Venice from
1960 until 1992,
Hanneford, known as "The
Riding Fool is the fourth mem-
ber of his family enshrined in the
hall of fame. After a full career as
a performer in many circuses, on
television and in films,
Hanneford became a circus pro-
ducer, annually choosing the


acts for his many shows. Most,
like the Ringling show, were
geared to being performed in
arenas but to this day, the
Hanneford show continues to
mount a traveling tent show
annually. The company also puts
together shows for others and
leases performance tents.
Hanneford was the technical
advisor for the film "Barnum,"

Florida West Coast Symphony becomes the Sarasota Orchestra


PROVIDED BY THE
SARASOTA ORCHESTRA
This season, Florida's longest
continuing orchestra, the Florida
West Coast Symphony, is cele-
brating its 60th anniversary and
making a major transformation.
The symphony has relaunched
its brand, revealing a new name -
Sarasota Orchestra- and pro-
gramming
for a new
generation
of audi-
Sences.
s o r s o t a "Reaching
o rChe r a this exciting
milestone in
our organization's history would
not have been possible without
continued support over the past
six decades from our talented
musicians, dedicated staff and
loyal patrons," says Joseph
McKenna, president and CEO,
Sarasota Orchestra.
"Our new brand identity is an
investment in our organization's
future vitality and honors our
past. It builds upon our success
and rich traditions, while reach-
ing out to new audiences and
encouraging them to discover
symphonic music. In addition,
our geographically descriptive
name change to Sarasota
Orchestra strengthens our link to
the international recognition of
Sarasota and its reputation as a
cultural community."
The new name, logo and pro-
gramming are a result of 18
months of research through sur-
veys, personal interviews and
focus groups of both current
subscribers and members of the
community. The process began
under the direction of previous
board chair, Bryan Langton, in
2006 and continues under the
guidance of current board chair,
Virginia Toulmin.
The brand relaunch also
reflects similar changes that
symphonies in cities across the
U.S. have been addressing for
the past decade and comes with
support from leaders in the
orchestra community.
"The Florida West Coast
Symphony did the kind of smart,
audience-centric strategic mar-
keting that more orchestras


ought to employ. Many of us in
the orchestra world admire and
applaud Sarasota's aggressively
comprehensive approach to
growing its audience. We look
forward to following the exciting
future of the Sarasota
Orchestra," said David Snead,
director of marketing, New York
Philharmonic.
Programming offers some-
thing for everyone. "This fall, we
are introducing new program-
ming that presents symphonic
music in a new way, speaking to
new audiences in a language
that they will understand and
enjoy," says Leif Bjaland, artistic
director and conductor, Sarasota
Orchestra. "Still, we will contin-
ue to offer programming
through our Masterworks and
Chamber Music series for our
more seasoned audiences who
already appreciate the classics."
The perennial favorite Great
Escapes series and the Sarasota
Music Festival, celebrating its
45th anniversary in June of 2009,
will continue to embody all that
the Orchestra's long-term
patrons have come to expect.
Performances and educational
outreach programs will continue
in the entire Manatee and
Sarasota county regions.
Sarasota Orchestra's new pro-
grams this season include:
"Journeys to Genius," which
combines narration, video and
music to the tell the stories of
history's great composers; "Pixel
Pops," a dynamic presentation of
the music audiences know and
love with the addition of syn-
chronized video projected on a
large screen; and Family
Concerts, perfect for parents
who want to introduce their chil-
dren to the world of live music in
a fun, enriching way.
'Audiences of all ages, novices
or classical music lovers, will find
something to enjoy at the
Sarasota Orchestra this season,"
says Bjaland. "Most of all, they
will find a refreshing and satisfy-
ing way to experience music."
The public is invited to discov-
er the new Sarasota Orchestra at
a 60th anniversary celebration
from noon to 2:30 p.m. Saturday
at the Beatrice Friedman


Symphony Center, 709 N.
Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. This
free open house event will fea-
ture opportunities to meet the
musicians, an education show-
case, a musical "petting zoo,"


face painting and birthday cake.
The Orchestra will also perform
at 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m., with a
special performance of "Peter
and the Wolf" at 1:15 p.m.

Frozen River (R) NEW
Two days before Christmas in rural upstate
New York, Ray Eddy's husband has left her in
an impossible situation-not only is he gone,
but he has gambled away all of the family's
meager savings. Ray's single wage at the
Yankee One Dollar Store can't make the house
payment, and the situation forces Ray to feed
her two sons popcorn and Tang everyday.
Courtney Hunt's remarkable and deeply emo-
tional first feature is a realistic look at the
world of human smuggling and the difficult
choices facing poor, single mothers. Frozen
River is ultimately about the strength that
resides in family and the way hope in a dire
situation can be uncovered by courage and
trust. 97 mins.

Discover Sarasota in September


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
As they did last year, eight
Sarasota visitor attractions are
offering two-for-one deals dur-
ing the month of September.
Take a friend or family mem-
ber to see some of the places
you have been meaning to see
for years.
The eight attractions include
Crowley Museum and Nature
Center, G. WIZ The Science
Museum, Historic Spanish
Point, The John and Mable
Ringling Museum of Art, Marie
Selby Botanical Gardens, Mote
Aquarium, Sarasota Jungle
Gardens and South Florida
Museum.
Crowley Museum and Nature
Center is part park and part
nature center. Located on 190
acres 11 miles east of Sarasota
on Myakka Road, Crowley has a
winding boardwalk overlooking
the Maple Branch Swamp, a
homestead cabin, working
blacksmith shop and a restored
1892 Florida "Cracker" house.
G.WIZ is a hands-on science
museum on Boulevard of the
Arts, just west of the Van Wezel
Performing Arts Hall. Feel what
it is like to be a human gyro-
scope, play with magnets and
magnetized metal filings. Watch
your hair stand on end. Physics
is not a dirty word at G.WIZ,
which stands for the Gulfcoast
Wonder and Imagination Zone.
Historic Spanish Point, south
of Sarasota in Osprey, offers
exhibits that relate maritime,
pioneer and Naive American
history of the past 5,000 years.
Visit the old pioneer cemetery
and chapel. See a cutaway of an
Indian midden and visit the
lovely rose garden and pergola
that belonged to the late Bertha
Palmer, who once owned some
140,000 acres of land in what is
today Sarasota and Manatee
counties.
The John and Mable Ringling
Museum of Art, at the western
end of University Parkway (Exit
213 of Interstate 75) is the 20th
most valuable art museum in

Center in Sarasota.
the United States, home of the
Tibbals Learning Center, Circus
Museum, Historic Asolo Theater
and Ca d'Zan, the onetime win-
ter home of the Ringlings.
Within the museum's clois-
tered courtyard is one of the
finest collections of bronze
statues at any one location in
the world. Michaelangelo's
David is the most famous of
the statues, which were cast
by the Chiurazzi Foundry in
Naples, Italy.
Marie Selby Botanical
Gardens, at 811 S. Palm Ave., is
the site of the homes of Marie
and Bill Selby and Christy and
Ann Payne. The 8.5 acre site
along Sarasota Bay contains
butterfly, herb, hibiscus, bam-
boo and over specialty gardens.
The grounds are wheelchair
accessible and there also is an
indoor tropical greenhouse with
an extensive collection of
orchids and other epiphytes
plus countless bromeliads. It is a
world famous learning center.
Mote Marine Laboratory &
Aquarium is part scientific
research facility where valuable
research is conducted on
marine turtles, manatees, dol-
phins and other species. It also
is an attraction where visitors
can study many varieties of

Museum of Art in Sarasota.
marine life in enclosed and
open tanks. Learn about coral
reefs, rivers, bays, estuaries and
more. Pet a stingray or pick up a
live starfish. Watch sharks from
windows in the sidewalls of
their large tanks.
Sarasota Jungle Gardens,
just a few blocks south of the
Ringling museum complex is
part zoo and part botanical
garden. It is the oldest attraction
in the area and features reptile
shows, birds of prey, leopards,
alligators, and, on my most
recent visit, a crocodile. While
there you can feed the koi in
the pond. Plan to spend at
least two hours.
South Florida Museum in
Bradenton, is the home of the
oldest manatee born in captivi-
ty, Snooty. Snooty, the star of the
Parker Manatee Aquarium, loves
lettuce and eats a lot of it. Also
on site is the Bishop
Planetarium, specialty shows
and several historical buildings.
The South Florida Museum uses
a series of dioramas to relate
area history back to the
earliest times.
In addition to the two-for-one
deal, other organizations are
offering discounts for model
stays, restaurant visits
and more. Visit
www.30daysofdiscovery.com.
