A true best friend


From hearing assistance
to seizure detection,
canines help their owners
do a lot more than cross
streets.

BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
STAFF WRITER

It took Sam Avallone a while
to recognize the special talent
his Irish Setter, Enrique, had.
Sam and his wife, Jeanne, had
gotten Enrique a little more than
a year ago to replace a beloved
pet, Misty, that had passed on.
Normally a well-behaved dog,
there were times the setter
would pace frantically in the
house, or paw at Sam, or use his
head to flip the man's arm.
"What is that dog doing?"
Sam and Jeanne wondered. He
acted like a dog that urgently
needed to go outside but would
not leave Sam's side.
In time, Sam understood the
dog was signaling that Sam was
hypoglycemic. A diabetic, Sam
might feel fine, but somehow the
dog seemed to sense when Sam
was about to have a problem a
lot sooner than the man himself
would realize.
They confirmed Enrique's gift
when Jeanne came across a
magazine story about dogs who
sensed their owners' diabetic
state. The setter would prove to
be invaluable as long as he was
by Sam's side.
Not long after, the Avallones,
who live in North Port, learned
about dog trainer Linda Carter.
Based in Sarasota, Carter trains
dogs who help their owners in
various ways.
"When most people think of
service dogs, they think of dogs
who help the blind," Carter said.
"But there are many other ways
dogs contribute."
Carter had gathered several
members of her SOSDOGS
group Safe Oasis Service Dog
Outreach Group for an outing
at Sarasota's Southgate Mall. To

be certified as a service dog an
animal must become accus-
tomed to being in public, to hav-
ing people approach it (even
though strangers are told not to
disturb a dog while it's working),
and to coping with the many
confusing and noisy things they
might encounter.
A good service dog must be
able to go to a movie or a restau-
rant with its owner and lie quiet-
ly by.
"Service dogs are trained to
not even shake when they get up
from sleeping, as a dog usually
does," Carter said. "How would
that be if a dog in a restaurant
stood up and shook, its hair fly-
ing all over? So they are trained
to shake on command only after
they've left."
Law says let them enter
Under the Americans with
Disabilities Act, most business


establishments must allow ser-
vice dogs to enter along with
their owners. Restaurants, shop-
ping centers, grocery stores,
taxis, even airplanes may not
legally bar a service dog when it
is working, and may not charge a
fee unless the animal causes
damage. (The only exceptions
are places where the public nor-
mally is not allowed, such as a
sterile operating room, or a facil-
ity that is clearly inappropriate,
such as a roller coaster.)
Similar laws have been
adopted in Florida, and viola-
tions of the law can be charged
as a second-degree misde-
meanor, punishable by up to 60
days in jail and a $500 fine.
There are no national test an
animal must pass to be certified
as a service dog, although there
are many organizations that
have voluntary standard. Ac-
cording to Carter, a service dog


must be "a good canine citizen,"
able to be in public and remain
calm and focused, not overact to
loud or starting noises (but must
recover quickly), and socialize
well with other people, dogs and
animals.
In restaurants, a service dog
should lie quietly at its owner's
feet.
"The best compliment you
can pay is to have restaurant
staff say they didn't even realize
a dog was there," Carter said.
A service dog must not eat
food found or dropped on the
restaurant floor. Of course, it
must be house-trained; most
service dogs are trained to go on
command.
On this Sunday, the SOSDOG
owners and canines gathered at
Southgate Mall and sat quietly
near an entrance as people

School millage rates, budget adopted


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County School
Board adopted the 2008 millage
rates and final budget for the
2008-09 school year following
public hearings Tuesday.
The board adopted a total
millage rate of 7.045, a decrease
from last year's total of 7.123
mills. This figure includes re-
quired local effort of 3.717 mills;
discretionary operating of .498
mills; supplemental operating of
.080 mills; capital of 1.750 mills;
and voted operating of 1 mill.
Last week, AlWeidner, deputy
chief financial officer for the dis-


trict, said the tax roll had de-
clined more than 10 percent and
the school district is expected to
bring in 13.53 percent fewer dol-
lars than last year.
The operating millage is used
to hire staff, pay negotiated
salary and fringe benefits to staff
and support the cost of fuel,
electricity and other goods and
services.
Final budget
Final general fund budget
expenditures total $422,882,989
with revenues projected at
$404,794,377.
In the general fund budget re-
port Weidner explained how to-


tal appropriations of $422,882,989
will be met. Local revenues of
$294,228,846 make up 69 per-
cent; transfers in from the capi-
tal fund of $15,288,001 make up
3.6 percent; federal revenues of
$1,525,430 make up 0.4 percent;
state revenues of $93,752,100
make up 22.2 percent; and dis-
trict reserves of $18,088,612
make up 4.3 percent.
Because of the economic
downturn and the 2008 Leg-
islative session reducing educa-
tion funding below the 2007-08
level, the school board made
drastic budget cuts this year.
Weidner said the board decided
to make adjustments that would


have the least
impact on
classrooms.
"In keeping
the reductions
away from the
classroom, the
school board
is reducing the
Weidner unreserved
fund balance
to 8.17 percent of total appropri-
ations. But the district set aside 2
percent, or $6.7 million, in antic-
ipation of a holdback from the
state expected some time before
the end of the fiscal year,"

Chambers of commerce plan online networking


BY JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

The Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce, in partnership with
the Greater Sarasota Chamber of
Commerce, is hoping to pro-
mote job growth in the area by
connecting small businesses
over the Internet.
A recent $196,000 grant from
Gulf Coast Community Founda-
tion of Venice will assist the


chambers in
the develop-
ment an all-
in-one online
resource cen-
ter for small
businesses
and entrepre-
neurs.
Ryan The Web site
will provide
small business owners with
information on business devel-


opment, video-teleconferencing
for educational programs (such
as workshops and seminars) and
a forum for local businesses to
connect with each other.
The project is estimated to
cost approximately $334,000 in
total and is expected to become
available for use, at least in part,
by January 2009.
John Ryan, VACC president
and CEO, said the plan is still in
the early stages of development.


"We are at the point where
we've made a proposal to move
forward with a more succinct
plan," he said. "Specifics will be
determined by our partners later
on."
Steve Queior, president of the
Sarasota chamber, said the idea
for a Web site was in large part a
response the number of layoffs
that have recently occurred in

'Outed' students offered

free credit protection


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Students whose Social Security
numbers were accidentally post-
ed on an unsecured Web site are
being offered help from the data
analysis contractor that exposed
the information.
A letter dated Sept. 8 from The
Princeton Review Executive Vice
President Kevin A. Howell to par-
ents of students whose informa-
tion was exposed offers a free
one-year subscription to a credit-
alert program.
The program is available only
for students whose Social Security
numbers were exposed and who
will be 18 or older by Jan. 31, 2009.
The students' 12-month mem-
berships include: monitoring of
credit reports at Experian,
Equifax and TransUnion; e-mail
alerts of key changes detected on
individual credit reports, which
may enable a student to identify
possible fraudulent activity;
monthly "no hit" alerts, if applic-
able; help from fraud resolution
representatives for victims of
identity theft; and $25,000 in
identity theft insurance with no
deductible.
Students must enroll for the
product personally by Jan. 31,
2009.
Because national credit report-


ing services do not provide credit
monitoring for anyone under 18,
free credit monitoring workshops
are being offered in the area to
parents of students whose infor-
mation was exposed and who are
under 18.
Information files of Sarasota
public school students who took
local benchmark progress tests
from 2005-08 were involved.
"The Web site was shut down
immediately when this situation
was discovered," Howell wrote.
"Students who were in grades
two-12 during school years 2005-
06 through 2008-09 were affected
(except for school year 2006-07,
for which it was grades three-12)."
According to a Sarasota County
press release, the unsecured
information included names,
birthdates, school, Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test
information, ethnicity and
Florida Student Identification
Number. In most cases, the
Florida Student ID number is the
student's Social Security number.
To participate in any of the
programs, parents or students
should call (800) 215-0225.

Schools, teachers strike a deal


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Teachers at Sarasota County
public schools could receive
raises ranging from 5 to 7 per-
cent under a tentative agree-
ment announced Monday.
Superintendent Lori White
and representatives of the
Sarasota Classified/Teachers
Association, which represents all


school instructional employees
and support staff, announced
the agreement a day before
finalizing the 2008-09 budget.
If approved by the school
board and ratified by employ-
ees in October, the 2008-09
contract will be retroactive to
July 1.
It includes a 1-percent salary
increase on the negotiated
salary schedule and an addition-


al 1-percent one-time bonus in
December.
In addition to the 2-percent
negotiated increase, employees
receive another automatic 1 to 2

Task force starts business talks


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

The city of Venice Economic
Development Task Force meets
today (Wednesday) in an even
more challenging economic
climate than it did last month,
following the bankruptcy of the
venerable Lehman Brothers
investment firm and a 500-
point drop in the Dow Jones
average.
The task force, charged by
city council with making rec-
ommendations to help the
local economy, has agreed on a
set of four objectives: identify-
ing underutilized properties
within the city and developing
a strategy to improve them;
supporting and promoting new
businesses and the retention


and expansion of existing busi-
nesses; defining and address-
ing the barriers to economic
vitality; and exploring public
and private partnerships.
Mayor Ed Martin, filling in
for Vice Mayor John Moore as
council's liaison at the task
force's August meeting, said he
will put the objectives before
council for its seal of approval.
The next step, which begins
today, is to ask some of those
existing businesses to share
their thoughts and experi-
ences.
"If they have some ideas
about how this might be
addressed, we're open to that
too," said task force member
Mack Wilcox at the August
meeting.
Up first are three nonprofit


organizations: Habitat for
Humanity of South Sarasota
County, Big Brothers Big
Sisters, and the South County
Family YMCA. Bringing non-
profits into the mix was
Martin's suggestion, and it was
seconded by task force mem-
ber Lee Thacker.
"I think we should get feed-
back from them also," he said.
"They make a heck of an
impact on families."
Representatives of business-
es in the manufacturing, ser-
vice and retail sectors will be
invited to future meetings.
There's no set timetable for
who will appear when or how
many meetings there will be.
The task force meets at 3:30
p.m. in council chambers at
city hall, 401 W Venice Ave.

OUR VIEW



Residents love it here despite problems


It should come as no surprise that
people are worried about the overall
economic situation. With the hous-
ing market in a trough and unemploy-
ment up, the 2008 Citizens Survey con-
ducted by Sarasota County only con-
firms the obvious: More and more peo-
ple are concerned, if not for themselves,
then for their neighbors.
In the latest annual survey of 800 res-
idents by University of South Florida
political science professor Susan Mac-
Manus, 22 percent of respondents listed
the economy and jobs as the single
most-important issue facing Sarasota
County. All things considered, it may be
surprising that the number was so low.
"Lets face it," MacManus said last
week. "We're in a time period when peo-
ple are stressed out financially."
It's revealing to note that last year


economy/jobs was singled out by only 4
percent of those surveyed. In 2007, it
followed far behind taxes (21 percent),
population growth and new develop-
ment (21 percent) and traffic and trans-
portation (15 percent).
This year, taxes fell to 15 percent on
the list, which may indicate that legisla-
tive tax-cutting measures have had
some impact, at least on public percep-
tions.
Growth/development and traffic/
transportation also dipped this year,
each dropping 5 percentage points
from the previous year. Growth issues
are always near or at the top of these
surveys, even when there has been little
new construction activity, as in the past
year.
Some of this, MacManus said, re-
flects the general displeasure of older


respondents with the enormous growth
of recent decades. But while something
like traffic may concern long-term resi-
dents, it may seem less important to
newcomers who have moved from cit-
ies with far more congestion.
"People judge things on what they're
used to," MacManus said.
As for the economic concerns, 10
percent indicated they were consider-
ing moving.
That group tended to be younger,
more African-American, lower-income
and unemployed or working part-time.
The reasons they may move away? Cost
of living (21 percent), lack of jobs (19
percent), and property taxes and high
insurance (15 percent.)
The positive news for local officials,
MacManus noted, was that this was
roughly half the number of people


thinking about moving out of state in a
recent statewide poll.
It also means 89 percent intended to
stay put. In fact, the survey again this
year reflects an overwhelming level of
satisfaction among Sarasota County
residents.
Some 40 percent rated the quality of
life here as excellent, 46 percent as
good.
In pollster's parlance, that's consid-
ered a satisfaction rate of 86 percent,
not bad by any measure. Only 10 per-
cent rated their quality of life as fair, 4
percent as poor.
"The good news is that three times as
many say they are very satisfied as say
they are very dissatisfied," MacManus
said.
Even in bad times, it seems, people
just like it here.


It's the drugs


BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER


One theme that came
out in all of the discussions
we had with candidates
was how many of our
problems are connected to
the abuse of drugs.
The public defender
candidates talked of how a
large percentage of the
people they are defending
are drug offenders of one
kind or another, most of
them petty users. They
spoke of how the backlog
of these cases has the jails
teeming with offenders,
most of whom just need to
get their lives straightened
out.
Our conversations about
the need for a new jail cen-
tered on solving the drug
caseload problem. One
thought was that we need
a separate, small group of
public defenders to deal
just with this problem.
One candidate said that
other jurisdictions have
called this an "intake unit,"
which assesses the severity
of the drug problem and
then assigns the offenders
to a wide variety of drug
rehab programs.
One of the problems is
that, because of budget
cuts, the number of judges
hasn't kept up with de-
mand. The idea of an in-
take unit is to get one
judge assigned to clear out
a large number of these
cases, freeing jail space
and helping the other
judges with their case-
loads.
The judicial candidates
mentioned that a new de-
tention facility could be a
minimum security unit,
even a halfway house kind
of place, with treatment,
counseling and monitor-
ing as some of its compo-
nents.
They thought this could
be in South County, so
there would be less of a
need to haul prisoners up
to the courtrooms in
Sarasota.
The drug problem was
mentioned in the school
board race, although to a
much smaller degree.
The schools know there
is a problem but it never
really gets public attention
because people in the
school system are afraid of
what bad publicity will do
to their jobs and the
schools' reputation. But
getting the problem in the


open is what will solve it,
not hiding from it like it is
the plague.
I hope the good ideas
we heard can help drug
users so we can start mak-
ing an impact.


By's Crack: The doc-
tor asked a friend,
"Where does it hurt?"
He pointed to his wal-
let.

a pressure-cleaning outfit
who would like to pretty
up some of the jewels in
the community mold

good at it, remove the

may need it to add to the
Venice Municipal Airport's
name if some people have
their way) and the roof of
the train depot, which is
nasty-looking.

Nanci Cuddihy sent me
a story from the Washing-
ton County Press, near the
twin cities in Minnesota.
The story was about a
roundabout the county
had constructed. In the 10
months since it was con-
structed there had been 22
accidents, mostly fender-
benders.
The purpose of the
roundabout was to keep
traffic flowing safely. Well,
maybe one objective had
been reached. In the 10
years prior to it being in-
stalled there had been 26
accidents.
As one county commis-
sioner said, 80 percent of
the drivers are OK, 10 per-
cent are dingalings and the
other 10 percent get in the
circle and freeze.

One of Venice's really
special people is being
honored at a luncheon
Oct. 29: Jeannette Han-
chey Flokstra, who with
her late husband, Herb,
made huge contributions
to the YMCA from its
beginning in the '70s, with
their goal being to make it
a first-class facility. They
gave huge sums of money
and time.
The festivities are at the
Venice Yacht Club starting
at 11:30 a.m. It will only
cost $25 to attend.
The YMCA is trying to
get pictures of the early
days to build a wonderful
tribute and long-lasting
history of the Y.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


What if they held a class and...


Editor:
With the issues involving the Sunshine Law and ethics
here in Venice, I felt it was imperative that I, as a current
member of the planning commission, be as knowledge-
able as possible about these laws.
I attended the Open Government and Ethics Seminar
hosted by Williams, Parker, Harrison, Dietz & Getzen,
counsel to the Sarasota County Public Hospital Board;
the seminar was held in the hospital's auditorium Aug.
28.
The speakers were Mary Helen Farris of the Office of
the County Attorney for Hillsborough County, on the
Sunshine Law and Public Records Law; Julie Costas,
assistant general counsel for the Florida Commission on
Ethics, who spoke to the Code of Ethics; and Mike Con-
nolly, managing editor of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune,
who spoke on these topics from the viewpoint of a jour-
nalist.
Prior to introductions and presentations, one of the
attendees commented that in light of current events, she
was surprised that no one was in attendance from Ven-
ice. Attorney Dan Bailey Jr., the sponsor, noted that in
fact there was one attendee from Venice me.
The three-hour seminar was attended by 41 people
from the hospital board, Sarasota Bradenton Airport
Authority, school board, the cities of Sarasota and North
Port, the town of Longboat Key, the county and others.
I found the seminar to be very worthwhile because it
went into much greater depth than similar sessions held
here in Venice. If our council had the benefit of such a
session, we might have avoided some of our current
issues.

LET 'EM HAVE IT: DO YOU THINK THERE IS A DRUG PROBLEM IN SARASOTA COUNTY'S SCHOOLS? CALL US AT 207-1111.


Snowbirds fly low, too


Trapped. There are two things that bother me in the
summer time. One of them is the speed traps and the
second is the water police or the restrictions. It seems
that as soon as season begins, the speed traps disappear
as well as the water restrictions. Why are the Florida res-
idents treated differently than the snowbirds?


Confused. I contracted
MRSA through an un-
known source and battled
it for four months. In the
meantime, my employer
had no other choice to but
to hire someone to replace
me as my position was one


of extreme importance. I
do not hold my employer
responsible as they had
held my position as long
as they could and they had
a business to run. What I
do have a problem with is
our state unemployment


agency. I did not file for
unemployment until I was
cleared from the doctor to
go back to work. Upon fil-
ing my claim, it took more
than four weeks to receive
a denial letter stating I was
denied due to a disability. I
am completely confused.
What exactly is the pur-
pose of unemployment? Is
it not for employees who
are terminated through no
fault of their own? My
unemployment was due to


my MRSA, not anything
else, and I was cleared by
my infectious disease doc-
tor to go back to work. So
where does unemploy-
ment get off determining I
am disabled? That would
be between myself and
SS disability.
Am I misunderstand-
ing the meaning of un-
employment benefits?
Focus. I totally agree,
like many others, that
council members should
pay their own attorney's
fees. Don't tell me they


didn't know using their
computers contacting
their advisory boards to
get their point across on
the airport was against the
Sunshine Law. That has
been their main reason to
be elected and take care of
their own wants and
needs. This has been their
main focus since they
were elected. With every-
thing else that is going on,
all the focus has been the
airport. I don't see that
anything will be accom-
plished by them and sug-


gest that we impeach
them before we have more
other problems that sur-
face by a group that was
not elected for the people,
but by their own selfish
needs.
Get down. At what
point in time do election
posters stop becoming
meaningful and become
trash? These signs have
been up for quite some
time and now, I think, a lot
of them are trash. Get your
signs down and stop
breaking the law.

Although people should not disturb ser- -- v .
vice dogs while they are working, 2-year-
old Hannah Keen could not resist making ,.
friends with Zoe, a Catahoula leopard
dog, while Linda Carter watches. "'
Hannah's family had recently lost its own -
pet, so she readily gravitated to the group
of service dogs out for training recently.

B EST from Page lA
came up, wanting to pet the dogs and
asking more about them. Most of the
dogs wear a vest identifying them as a
service dog or SDIT: Service Dog In
Training.
The vests are designed based on the
size of the dog and also the tasks it per-
forms. For example, Hintza, a big
Rhodesian ridgeback, helps his owner get
up from being seated and with mobility
assistance. When owner Melinda Leeson
says "brace," Hintza stiffens and allows
Leeson to grab the handle on the back of
his vest. Then she can pull herself up, and
she can also lean on the dog's shoulder
and hip to raise herself.
The vests can even be rigged with rings
to attach a wheelchair.
'A big dog can pull its owner around in
a wheelchair," Leeson said.
Zoe, a strong Catahoula leopard dog
with one blue and one brown eye, helps
her owner with mobility and seizure alert.
No one is sure how dogs can detect such
events as an epileptic seizure, an episode
of vertigo or hypoglycemia. But in Zoe's
case, she will pace frantically or step on
owner Rachel Kost's foot if she senses a
pending attack.
Playtime for all
While a dog is working, it is not a pet.
The vest helps the dog understand it's
time to work, and also acts as a signal to
others.
But the "all work and no play" adage
applies to dogs as well as humans, so
owners need to give their animals some
recreational time.
Carter's dogs love to play Flyball, and
they compete nationally. It's a doggie
relay race in which dogs run over jumps,
grab a ball and run back with it.
Enrique competes in dog shows where
he can show off his silky coat. As of May
he was the 18th-highest ranked Irish
Setter male in the country.
Selection for skills
Presently there is no way to be certain
which dogs have which skills to help peo-
ple. Some, by their size or breed, will be
better suited for certain tasks a large
strong dog, for instance, for mobility sup-
port, and a retriever to fetch things. But
there is no universal ideal for dogs detect-
ing chemical imbalances.
No one knows exactly how dogs are
able to detect impending physiological
changes, such as an epileptic seizure or
hypoglycemia. Studies are being done at
Queens University in Ireland in an effort
to identify the chemical conditions to
which dogs may be reacting.
A group called Dogs4Diabetes learned
that sensitive dogs are not necessarily
reacting to a specific blood sugar level,
but rather to an impending change. That
gives the owner time to address the situa-
tion before disaster strikes.
Dogs are even being studied now in
cancer detection. In fact, some studies
rate them at 90 percent accuracy in

detecting early stages of lung cancer -
when medical tests are less reliable but
treatment can still be effective. One study
suggested "cancer cells (may) emit differ-
ent metabolic waste products than nor-
mal cells," making it possible for a dog's
highly developed sense of smell to detect
it.
It is also unclear whether the ability of
a dog to detect certain conditions has any
genetic basis. Researchers question
whether the ability might be enhanced by
selective breeding.
Training: time, patience
It can cost up to $20,000 to buy a
trained service dog, putting it out of reach
for some people who really need one.
That's where trainers like Linda Carter
can help.
"It takes 12 to 18 months to train a ser-
vice dog for public access," Carter said.
"Training the owners is a big part of it,
too."
But if a dog has a skill, Carter can help
an owner through classes and groups.
The dog learns how to perform its special
skill whether alerting to a condition or
sounds, giving mobility assistance, or
retrieving and also works on socializa-
tion in public places.
Enrique uses his special gift every day
taking care of Sam. The dog not only
detects hypoglycemia but is also learning
to fetch Sam's sugar pills, get the phone
and turn on light switches. Enrique even
alerted to hypoglycemia for a woman
they didn't know while Sam and Jeanne
were working at the election polls last
year.
Enrique seems anxious when Sam is
out of his sight, as if afraid something
might happen while he's not there. The
Avallones even took Enrique to an "ani-
mal communicator," Barbara Goodfriend
in Sarasota.
Although they were initially skeptical,
they made allowances for the possibility
when Enrique, through Goodfriend, told
them he had been sent by Misty to watch
over them.

Weidner said.
Public comment
During the public hear-
ing, a man in the audience
asked why his taxes were
going up when the school
district had reduced staff
and some operating
expenses. He said he is see-
ing a substantial increase in
his taxes above the rate of
inflation at about 9 percent.
He said Amendment 1 was
to bring about a reduction
in taxes by doubling the
homestead exemption
from $25,000 to $50,000.
Weidner said the in-

"One of the ways we are
trying to counteract the
effect of the layoffs is to
help small businesses,
who are very strong job

Queior said the project
is a three-part system.
"The first part is a sub-

Mogensen's office re-
buked the charge, saying
Simmond's attorneys have
"filed every motion in the

proceedings. Part of the de-
lay, said Simmonds, has to
do with the cost of hiring an
expert to forensically re-
trieve the public records,
which he has admitted
deleting. He's looking to find
a less expensive way than to

the injuries he sustained
were from the altercation

A sheriff's office press
release issued later said the
weapon was a home-made
firearm.
One suspect was appre-
hended at Peachtree Street
and Iola Drive in Sarasota.
The other suspect, was ap-
prehended at 4115 Nelson
Ave. in Sarasota. Their
names were not available at


ably due to the value of his
homesteaded property go-
ing up 3 percent. He met
with the man after the
meeting to further explain
his personal tax situation.
Besides, the additional
homestead exemption
does not apply to school
districts, said Kathy Klein-
lein, board chair.
"School districts were
held harmless," she said,
so the exemption did not
cause a further decrease in
tax revenue for schools.
Mitsi Corcoran, chief
financial officer for the
district, gave an example
of how the 3-percent in-

information to expand

OBITUARIES


Historic Nokomis Beach Plaza to reopen Sept. 19


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY

Almost five years after being
closed to the public, the historic
Nokomis Beach Plaza will
reopen at 6 p.m., Friday, Sept. 19.
Jack West, the architect who
designed the original plaza and
oversaw its rehabilitation, will


join Sarasota County commis-
sioners for the ribbon cutting
ceremony.
The $1.3 million project was
funded by a combination of im-
pact fees, 1-cent sales surtaxfunds
and historical resource grants.
The beach plaza is designed
to protect sea turtles, with re-


cessed lights with true-red fil-
ters, tinted windows, louvers
and shades. These features help
guide sea turtle hatchlings to-
ward the sea and enable female
sea turtles to come ashore to lay
their eggs.
Sarasota County dedicated its
first beach plaza at Nokomis


Beach in February 1956. For the
next 53 years the Nokomis
Beach Plaza provided residents
and visitors with restrooms,
locker room facilities, a commu-
nity meeting space and a shaded
plaza overlooking Nokomis
Beach and the Gulf of Mexico.
Following its designation as a


historic structure in 2003, Sara-
sota County Parks and Recre-
ation officials worked with the
Sarasota County History Center
to seek grants to rehabilitate the
building.
For information, call 861-
5000 and ask about the Nokomis
Beach Plaza.

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

Q. My mother was
recently fit with two,
digital hearing aids but
was never given any
testing to determine if
they are working right.
Isn't some follow up
testing required?
A. There are numerous
post fitting tests which
should be performed and
are part of the verification
process. To what extent
these tests are performed
depends on who fit the
hearing aid initially. Most
quality audiology clinics
perform two sets of
verification tests, objective
and subjective. Objective
testing consists of
performing real ear
measurements in order to
record the response of the
hearing aid at various
input levels. If real ear
measurements are not
obtained, there is no way
to insure the programming
of the instrument is
appropriate for the
patient's hearing loss.
Subject testing is when a
patient is asked to identify
different words and
sounds with their hearing
aids on and set
appropriately. These tests
are conducted in quiet and
noisy environments to
measure how well a
patient can hear in various
surroundings. If your
mother purchased her
instruments from a quality
clinic, these tests were
performed and you are
entitled to a copy of the
results. If these tests were
not performed then your
mother needs to be seen
by the Audiologist at
Woodmere Hearing &
Balance Centers as soon
a possible at 492-4327 to
insure that the instrument
she has purchased is the
correct solution to her
hearing problem and will
be able to serve her needs
into the future.

MR. SHEEPSHEA


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


Super Sunday

in September

Wow! Sunday was the day.
First, lets talk about the
beach. I took a walk along the
beach and thought to myself,
"this water looks perfect for the
sheepies to be in the dip." The
tide was coming in and the
waves were churning up the
water at the beach. The water
was just cloudy enough to hide
the fish if they were in the dip
eating sand fleas.
As usual I didn't have any out-
fits in my car. I phoned by buddy
Schmarvela, who lives in a
condo on the beach. I told him
to bring down a light outfit with
about 10-pound test line. Well,
he did bring a light outfit. It was
his little granddaughter's closed-
reel piece of junk. The drag was
erratic and the rod wasn't as light
as I wanted. So I figure beggars
can't be choosy.
We were using my cooked
frozen sand fleas and we had
some small live ones. The catch
was just about even on the two
baits.
We caught two small redfish,
three black drum (one was 8
pounds). I caught that one and it
must have taken me 15 minutes
to land him. The drag was either
too light or too tight. I felt like
throwing the whole outfit in the
wash. We also caught several
nice whiting, two undersized
snook, a few big pinfish, one
flounder, one catfish and I lost a
monster. I never saw it, but he
took me up and down the beach
for at least 15 minutes. I think
the reason I never saw him was
that I was too busy complaining
about the outfit I was using. I
kept tightening the drag until it
finally snapped. I honestly think
it was a big red or a black drum.
While this was going on, I
later discovered from my friend
WC. Sanders that all heck was
happening at the Venice Jetties.
The action was hot on the
inlet side. Keeper and oversized
reds were there. They were
catching them on live green-
backs. I walked out on the jetty
Monday and a fisherman
informed me that he caught sev-
eral of the reds on my "Tuffies"
(frozen-brined, vacuum-sealed
greenbacks).
I believe all of this was caused
by the remnants of Hurricane
Ike.
There is a post script to this
story. Monday evening I got a
phone call from Schmarvela. He
was calling me from (store name
redacted). He took the reel back
and he put the manager on the
phone to confirm it. Now he's
upset at me because he spent
more money on a new reel.
Sometimes you can't win.
We'll talk again next week.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave Hack.
His column appears on
Wednesday. Contact him at

Venice head coach Brian

VHS FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK


D-line shows improvement;



Archer held out of practice


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High School
defensive line was supposed to
be one of the strengths of the
football team this season. Up
until the Braden River High
School game, they hadn't
showed much.
Over pursuit and players
getting too far upfield resulted
in more rushing yards than the
Indians were used to. A year
ago, the D-line allowed about
3.5 yards per carry. Stephen
lerulli of Cardinal Mooney High
School averaged 4.8 in the
Kickoff Classic. Riverview High
School's Andre Booker aver-
aged about 6 yards per carry in


game one.
"The kids are strong enough,
physical enough, fast enough, all
those good things, but they
weren't playing with the right
technique," Venice head coach
John Peacock said. "They've just
been a little too aggressive get-
ting upfield and not putting
hands on offensive linemen."
Even without their best
defensive lineman, senior James
Auxier, the Indians had a break-
through against Braden River
High School. Pirates running
back Jajuan Bell, who rushed for
more than 200 yards in the sea-
son opener, managed just 74
yards on 23 carries against the
Indians' front.
"They've improved dramati-

cally. It started with (defensive
line) coach (John) Ryan and all
of us getting together and mak-
ing corrections and making the
kids accountable for their play,"
defensive coordinator Larry
Shannon said. 'All those kids
have unbelievable ability, we're
just trying to get them to play the
right way to be successful."
Auxier (suspended) will be
back in action against Sarasota
High School Friday and when
Gerald Oriol (knee) returns in a
few weeks, Shannon said the
defensive line will be "hard to
deal with."
Auxier has been playing with
a cast on his left hand, but
coaches hope to have him back
at 100 percent in a week or so.
Archer held out
Senior tailback Dri Archer
was held out of practice Monday
and Tuesday, complaining of
tightness in his left hip.
Archer, who rushed for 197
yards and two touchdowns
Friday against Braden River, said
the pain started in fourth period
class on Monday, but was feel-
ing a little better by Tuesday
afternoon. He said he plans on
practicing Wednesday so he will
be ready to go Friday against
Sarasota High School.

committed only eight
unforced errors compared
to 30 team kills. The differ-
ence speaks for itself.
Once again junior
Dorothy Rahal led the
Indians with 19 kills and
21 digs. Junior Jillian Allen
continues to showcase
her defensive abilities as
well, registering 19 digs.
Breakout hitter Emily
Daniels logged 14 kills and
15 digs. Sophomore up-
and-comer Autumn Duyn
had 16 kills. Junior setter
Taylor Capasso registered
52 assists, three kills and a
team-high two blocks.
Junior Whitney Steranko
served up three aces.
But Venice just wasn't
consistent. In game one,
Manatee senior Courtney
McDonald had her way
with the Indians with five
kills and two blocks. She
repeated that perfor-
mance in the Hurricanes'
game-three win with five
kills and one more block.
The Indians were at
their best when McDonald
struggled. McDonald com-
mitted four unforced
errors in Venice's 25-10
win in game two. It was a
flawless start to game
four that gave Venice a
16-3 lead, from which the
Hurricanes could not
recover.
Manatee, who was
suspected to be Venice's
biggest competition in a
district the Indians have
dominated in recent his-
tory, has proven itself to
be a worthy adversary.
Venice will not face the
Hurricanes again during
the regular season but a
District 5A-12 champi-
onship tournament show-
down is definitely on the
radar.

Scanning the nation...

Former Venice High
School pitcher Zack
Montalbano has made the
preseason baseball roster as
a freshman at Guilford
College in Greensboro, N.C.
The right-hander from
Osprey made his way into
the Indians' two-man start-
ing rotation as a senior at
Venice a year ago.
Guilford competes in
the Old Dominion Athletic
Conference in NCAA
Division III. Last year the
Quakers posted a 17-22
record while finishing 6-12
in the ODAC. Montalbano
hopes to join the regular-
season roster, which lost
five seniors to graduation
and should return up to 36
letter winners.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The
Gondolier Sun is checking
up with Venice athletes
who have gone on to big-

Florida heat brings paradise for bugs


Additional rainfall and increased humidity
brings out a host of breeding insects.


BY ALISON POSNER
STAFF WRITER

Florida's tropical cli-
mate attracts millions of
vacationers each year. But
the steamy weather can
bring unwanted visitors,
too.
"This is our swarming
season for termites, ants
and a variety of other
pests," said Barry Murray,
national spokesman for
Truly Nolan. "It's pretty
common this time of
year."'
The influx of outdoor
insects is caused by a com-
bination of rain and hu-
mid conditions. The high
humidity acts as an incu-
bator, Murray said, and
causes the reproduction
rate to increase, causing
more insect activity.
Paul Bouvier, president
of Econo Termite & Pest
Control, agrees.
"Once it starts raining,
they start coming out of
the woodwork," Bouvier
said.
Bouvier said that he
doesn't necessarily get
more calls, but he does see
more bug activity during
the summer.
"We see everything ...
spiders, ants, fleas and
ticks," he said.
Spiders are another
common sighting this time
of year.
Donna Negrich, vice
president of Ban-A-Bug,
has noticed a slight in-
crease in calls from people
who have spotted spiders
in their homes.
Varied species of spi-
ders are found in Florida.


The most commonly
feared are the black wid-
ows, which can be identi-
fied by a red-shaped hour-
glass marking on their ab-
domen.
The most familiar spi-
der is the wood spider, also
known as "daddy long
legs."
"Most people are famil-
iar with them and have
seen them," Negrich said.
Spiders are known to be
more prevalent outdoors.
"But it doesn't mean
they won't find their way
inside," Murray said.
"They usually go where
the food is ... You can al-
most guarantee that any-
one who is having a tre-
mendous spider problem,
they're having something
in or around their house
providing a very good food
source."
There are ways to avoid
spider and other pest out-
breaks both outdoors.
"The best thing is to
make sure everything is
turned away from the
house, like trees and
shrubs," said Negrich.
A way to safeguard the
interior of the home
against pests is to sweep
down webs with dusters
and to make sure all
screens and windows are
tightly sealed. Another
suggestion is to consider a
pest-control program.
"The good news is you
have the wonderful weath-
er here," said Negrich. "But
the bad news is you have
the bugs that go with it."

Turtle nests washed

out by Gustav and Ike


BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER

More than half the sea
turtle eggs on Sarasota and
Charlotte County beaches
have already hatched, but
waves from Hurricanes
Gustav and Ike put a dent
in the remaining ones.
Preliminary data col-
lected by Mote Marine
Laboratory show that 192
nests 14.2 percent -
were washed out and an-
other 313 nests 24.5
percent were washed
over in Sarasota.
Sarasota beach patrol-
lers counted 1,132 sea tur-
tle nests so far this season.
Nearly 60 percent have
already hatched.
Without actually mak-
ing landfall in the area,
Gustav and Ike spawned
waves in the Gulf that
made turtle patrol difficult
or impossible on some
beaches, turtle watchers
say.
The nests that were
washed out are considered
lost, according to Mote.
Those that were washed
over were affected in some
way by the storms, but
may still be viable.
The data were collected
by Mote staff and volun-
teers who patrol Sarasota
County's 35 miles of
beaches fromVenice north
to Longboat Key.
Most beaches to the
south, from South Venice
to Boca Grande Pass, are
patrolled by Coastal Wild-
life Club, a nonprofit con-
servation group made up
entirely of volunteers. The
storms' impact is not near-
ly as clear on those area
beaches, according to Wil-
ma Katz, Coastal Wildlife
Club vice president.
Complications
The Sarasota portion of
Manasota Key is generally
considered the densest
nesting area on Florida's
West Coast.


Volunteers mark new
nests with stakes and pro-
tective netting, but when
big waves roll in, it gets
complicated.
Nests can be difficult or
impossible to find, and
volunteers can't examine
them until the nests dry
out, Katz said.
"We lost nests. To what
extent, we simply don't
know because in these
storms, when stakes wash
out, it's hard to say," she
said.
As in Sarasota County,
more than half the nests
on Manasota Key and
Charlotte County have
already hatched.
Storms coming late in
the nesting season -
which lasts from May 1 to
Oct. 31 generally do less
harm to the nests than
earlier storms, Katz said.
Hatchlings can take a few
days to emerge from the
nest. They may not drown
if the nest is washed over.
Unhatched turtles are
more vulnerable.
Storms aren't the only
culprit. Regular weather
can wreak havoc.
"We have high tide
events that wipe out near-
ly every single nest in
some zones," Katz said.
Fortunately, sea turtles
have an evolutionary strat-
egy that may help ensure
survival of the species.
They nest multiple times
each season, so no storm
is ever a total loss for sea
turtle nesting, according
to a statement from Mote.
Residents and beach-
goers can help improve
the chances for remaining
turtles by keeping dogs off
the beach, keeping lights
off the beach at night,
removing beach furniture
and filling in holes so they
don't become obstacles for
babies and mothers nest-
ing late in the season.

ABBY SOLVES THE PROBLEM 5B


Sarasota ballet season promises to be luminous


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Sarasota Ballet's Artistic Director lain Webb seems intent
on topping what he accomplished during his first season at
the helm of the company.
Numbers tell the story: seven weekends filled with after-
noon and evening performances; three different locations;
15 individual ballets; 12 new to the area; five lecture-
demonstrations about the season; and one world premier
featuring the combined efforts of two companies the
Sarasota Ballet and the Dominic Walsh Dance Theater of
Houston.
The lecture-demonstrations hosted by Webb will be pre-
sented in the Historic Asolo Theater, within the visitor cen-
ter building of the John and Mabel Ringling Museum of Art,
5401 Bay Shore Drive, Sarasota, beginning in October. Webb
is both dance historian and dance master. Individual pro-
grams are $25 per person. Cost for attending all five demon-
stration lectures is $100. For information and dates, call
360-7399.
While striving for uniqueness among American ballet
companies, the Sarasota Company will, like so many com-
panies around the world, honor the 100th anniversary of
Ballet Russe and its famous director Serge Diaghilev.
Specifically, the Sarasota Ballet will pay homage to ballerina
Dame Alicia Markova, who was discovered by Diaghilev at
the age of 14, and Dame Ninette de Valois, a member of
Ballet Russe assigned to look after the 14-year-old who
would one day be a legend. DeValois later founded the
Royal Ballet. Webb worked with both women.
Most of the coming season's productions will be present-
ed in the Mertz Theatre at the Florida State University
Center for the Performing Arts. In November, the ballet will
perform at the recently renovated and restored Sarasota
Opera House. The March presentation, 'Anna Karanina,"
will be performed at thclVin XWo 1 performing Arts I Jall in
Sarasota.
The season willop-n n thi- Nh ti/ I h.lit it iili 1 t I"
Center with a three- hilh .- pi o) im

strengths. "Lilac Gait i nii. b\ 11

drama, which has b, -n .n
compared to the sh. i t

Maupassant. Also on thi it
program is Robert No th i
"Troy Game," which i,
one of three previo 1,1
Sarasota Ballet pro -
ductions being pei -
formed in the
coming season.
The third ballet
being per-
formed in
October is
Renato
Paroni's
"Rococo
Variations,"
which pre-
miered in
May. It honors
18th century -.
dance styles
such as those
performed at
court and within
grand houses.
November's pro- ,
gram will bring a h It
game to life on th, ()p i. i
House stage when ihti- i C-
tain goes up on D.im. Nint.ii t

ond half of the proiginm It.iatiii-s
John Cranko's droll P .int-,ipplh Poll,.
with music by Sir.\j ihti 'ltiilliin l (1 ( ,iib it
& Sullivan.
For the holidays, instead of the
"Nutcracker," which is so often the ballet
choice for that season, the Sarasota Ballet
will present the ice skating ballet, "Les
Patineurs" created by Sir Frederic Ashton in
1937. As so many moves used by ice skaters
have roots in ballet, it is always interesting
to see dancers emulating ice skaters, the
sum and substance of this ballet, which is
set in an amusement park in the late 1800s.
The late January production will feature
Dame Ninette de Valois's "The Rake's
Progress," which has not been staged in
the United States for some 60 years,
since it was performed by the Royal r


Ballet. Also set in the 1800s, it was based on engravings by
William Hogarth.
Negotiations have not been finalized for the Feb. 20-22
program.
In March the ballet will present the three-act AndrO
Prokovsky adaptation of 'Anna Karenina," inspired by
Tolstoy's novel of the same name.
The season will end in April with the world premier of
Mozart's "The Trilogy," performed by the ballet and mem-
bers of the Dominic Walsh Dance Theater of Houston. The
dance company earned positive reviews last season for
"Amadeus" in February and for "Wolfgang," which was pre-
sented in April. Later in April, both companies will perform
"The Trilogy" in Houston.
"When you commission a new ballet there is always an
element of risk involved but, when I saw the first run of
"Wolfgang for Webb" in the studio, it surpassed all my
expectations," Webb said. "The thing I find inspiring is
Dominic's approach to movement, his musicality, and visu-
al conception.
"Working with Dominic has opened a new chapter in the
dancers' vocabulary and when Dominic's company was
here last February the dancers from both companies took
class together. The blend between their training created a
wonderful atmosphere where the dancers from both com-
panies were inspired by each other."

I'' According to
one online survey of
more than 200 chiro-
- practors across North
America, 89 percent of the
respondents indicated that
they have seen patients
between ages 5 and 18 years
who reported back, neck, or
shoulder pain caused by heavy
backpacks. As pervasive as this
problem seems to be, parents
should take precautions that ensure
that their children will not become
similarly burdened. The first step in
this direction involves choosing a
backpack for school that is the
correct size. With this in mind, a
child should not be able to fill a
backpack with a load that
exceeds 15 percent of his or her
body weight. Beyond that, a
child should use both shoulder
straps when carrying a pack.

FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY

Sarasota County is
seeking volunteers to help
celebrate the 15th annual
National Public Lands Day
by improving habitat and
trails at county-owned
sites.
From 8:30 a.m.-noon,
Saturday, Sept. 27, staff
from Sarasota County Nat-
ural Resources and Parks
and Recreation will guide
volunteers in the removal
of exotic plant species, the
installation of trail mark-
ers, and the collection of
the invasive air potato
plant and debris.
Preregistration to par-
ticipate in this event is
required. For information
about how to preregister,
contact the Sarasota
County Call Center at 861-
5000.
Those interested in
Circus Hammock, Pocono
Trail Preserve or Curry
Creek Preserve should ask
for Natural Resources, and
those interested in Pine-
craft Park should ask for
Beaches and Natural Area
Parks.
Trail markers will be
installed at Curry Creek
Preserve, 1075 Albee Farm


Road, Venice, and Circus
Hammock, 4572 17th St.,
Sarasota. At the same time,
staff and volunteers will be
removing invasive exotic
plants from Pinecraft Park,
1420 Gilbert Ave., Sarasota,
and Pocono Trail Preserve,
189 Pocono Trail, Noko-
mis.
"Providing trail markers
at sites provides easier
walking access along the
trails on our public lands,"
said Public Use Coordin-
ator Brie Ondercin. "This
project is a fun way to
introduce families to na-
ture and improve the trails
that visitors hike."
All volunteers will re-
ceive gardening gloves and
water. Restrooms or port-
able toilets will be avail-
able. Participants must
provide their own hand
tools, such as clippers and
shears, and should also
bring water, bug spray,
sunscreen, hat (optional)
and sunglasses. Volunteers
should wear closed-toe,
closed-heel shoes such as
hiking boots or old sneak-
ers and comfortable cloth-
ing suitable for outdoor
work.
"Invasive plants have a
tendency to take over
native habitats," Ondercin


said. "Some invasive plant
species are toxic and
harmful for other plants,
animals and even hu-
mans. Removing them
keeps them from spread-
ing farther throughout the
county's natural areas and
into people's backyards,
and this is the perfect
opportunity to highlight
the problem and recruit
volunteers to help restore
natural areas."
National Public Lands
Day is the nation's largest
hands-on volunteer effort
to improve and enhance
America's public lands.
Sept. 27 marks the third
year that Sarasota County
will participate in the
annual event, which is a
program of the National
Environmental Education
and Training Foundation.
During last year's Na-
tional Public Lands Day,
nearly 110,000 volunteers
built trails and bridges,
planted trees and plants,
and removed trash and
invasive plants. In the
process, they also learned
about the importance of
public lands to the nation's
environmental, economic
and social health.

FROM VENICE CHURCH
OF THE NAZARENE

Gloria Caprio, new di-
rector at Venice Church of
the Nazarene preschool,
has a lot to announce and
the children are bringing
the message home.
The Nickel News is a
newly developed newslet-
ter designed to inform par-
ents on a monthly basis
about the inside news of
the preschool. It is a col-
laborative effort on the
part of students, school
and church staff.
The newspaper con-
tains past classroom activ-
ities, upcoming events,
birthday announcements
and, best of all, quotes,
quips and photographs of
the children in action.
The most important job
is in the hands of the pre-K
class. Donned in sandwich
boards and news hats,
they call out "Nickel News,
read all about it!" Once
they have gained the
attention of customers, the
cashiers spring into action.
They're very comfortable

with the responsibility of
making change, which
they have practiced for
weeks.
"We found the state-
ment'keep the change' very
disappointing for the chil-
dren to hear. More than
anything, they look for any
opportunity to make
change," said Caprio.
What's new?
The directorship has
changed hands (to Caprio)
after 12 years of exception-
al leadership. Since the
school's inception, Kathy
Bernius has guided the
teachers in creating a lov-
ing school now accredited
by National Association for
the Education for Young
Children and has main-
tained a flawless reputa-
tion.


Caprio, with 15 years of
experience, has worked
under the direction of
Bernius for six years.
"God has blessed me
with a caring and insight-
ful mentor," Caprio said.
VCN preschool will
remain with small num-
bers of children per teach-
er to "give each individual
child the nurturing and
guidance they need when
group sizes are kept low,"
Caprio said.
Also new
Three new programs
were introduced.

Jennifer Bruce is the new
administrative assistant for
the Venice Symphony. She
welcomes the opportunity to
meet friends at the Eric and
Carl Watters concert.


Count your blessings once again


Counting blessings took
center stage at the Venice
Theatre as a sold-out house
honored Eric and Carl
Watters.
The cast of 'A Christ-


mas Carol" set the tone
singing about counting
blessings.
The Venice Presbyter-
ian Church Choir under
the direction of Dr. Warren
Apple honored Eric for his
service with the church.
VPC Pastor Chris Romig
and his wife, Karen, per-
formed a piano-and-flute
duet.
As the program pro-
gressed, Jack Perkins
wove a story of two broth-
ers, serving the communi-
ty and coming from a lov-
ing family.
He read stories from
their father's journal about
how much he loved their
mom and how grateful he


was to be alive each day as
he served in the Army. Jack
concluded by saying how
proud the father would be
of his two sons.
Jim Cox, Eric's longtime
accompanist, sent a loving
piano tribute. Blaire Ben-
nett performed a trumpet
solo and Blake Bennett
played "The Big Dog
Boogie" on the piano.
Both students repre-
sent the hundreds of
South County students
who enjoy the Symphony
in the Schools program
thanks to Eric's fundrais-
ing.
Jennifer Harris sang
"You'll Never Walk Alone"
and "Ave Maria." She


brought a reverence to the
concert that gave meaning
to the event. Taking center
stage, Carl and Eric enjoy-
ed a long, warm standing
ovation.
"Your names are all
written somewhere in my
gratitude journals," Eric
said as he looked out at the
crowd. He then performed
his hallmark song-and-
dance routine, "I've Been
Everywhere."
To conclude, Perkins
put his hands on their
shoulders and asked God
to bless Carl and Eric Wat-
ters and our country.
The Venice Symphony,
directed by Wesley John
Schumacher, played "God


Bless America" and the
audience rose to its feet to
sing.
From my balcony seat, I
looked out at the event
and couldn't remember a
time I felt more love and
appreciation in Venice.
This is a special place.

The special people of
this week are Eric and Carl
Watters. These men bring

hundredfold at the appre-
ciation concert.
