City considering



kicking some grass


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Council Member Ernie Za-
vodnyik may not have succeed-
ed earlier this summer in getting
city council to adopt the In-
ternational Property Mainten-
ance Code, but he isn't giving up
on the concept.
He persuaded city council
recently to study the idea of hir-
ing someone to cut lawns and
pick up trash on abandoned
properties.
Zavodnyik said he measured
one lawn recently where the
grass reached 2 feet. It was un-
sightly, and something ought to
be done about it, he said.
"We need to develop a policy.
I am suggesting we consider a
procedure to act on" this type of
situation, he said.
"I think we need to move for-
ward on this ... to whip this
problem before it gets out of
hand. Given the terrible situa-
tion the country faces, I think it's
going to get worse."
He suggested hiring a private
landscaper to cut the lawns and
then place a lien on the proper-
ties to recoup the expense.
Reactions, remedies
City code already allows
offenders to be brought before
the code enforcement board,
where fines can be imposed.
City Attorney Bob Anderson
said he didn't think there was
anything wrong with what is
already in code, but acknowl-
edged it wasn't getting the prob-
lem resolved.
He sounded a warning about
the cost to keep up abandoned
properties due to the growing
number of bankruptcies and
foreclosures. Do you pick up
trash as well? Do you cover bro-
ken windows or doors? What
about pools that have gone
green because the power has
been cut? What liability does this

present for the city?
"Cape Coral and Fort Myers
are spending gobs of money. If
you go down this path, you will
be committing resources to
maintain derelict property, and
it's generally a lot more" than
cutting lawns, Anderson said.
North Port came up with a
proactive code enforcement
strategy, he said.
"We ought to talk to North
Port about their experience," he
said. "What's been successful or
not. There are a lot of answers,
but no good solutions."
City officials said they don't
have the staff to accommodate
the task.
"You do realize we are cutting
staff and loading them with
more responsibilities," said
Interim City Manager Nancy
Woodley.
She suggested setting aside
$10,000 to set up a fund to pay
for those services.
"I would be more inclined to
do this outside than in-house
(as) there may be more issues
with people getting hurt and the
protections we have," she said.
She suggested using an on-
call contractor.
Mayor Ed Martin agreed
something should be done.
"We ought to protect the city
from having a number of run-
down properties that harm the
interests of their neighbors and
make the city less attractive and
thereby lower values," he said.
"It may cost us something, but it
may be worth it."

Options for big water projects refined


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER


Shell Creek, Flatford Swamp
and Cow Pen Slough could sup-
ply as much as 50 million gallons
of water per day for future popu-
lations, if a series of options for
pumps, pipelines and reservoirs
are chosen, an engineering con-
sultant advised the Peace Riv-
er/Manasota Regional Water
Supply Authority Wednesday.
Authority consultant Pete
Putnam, of the Post Buckley
Schuh & Jernigan firm, gave the
authority an update on a feasi-
bility study during the board's
meeting. To date, the company
has narrowed the number of
options from dozens to several
for intake plant and reservoir
locations at each of the three
sources.
The water would be stored in
reservoirs at each site that would
total 17 billion gallons. That's
almost triple the size of the
authority's 1,000-acre reservoir
currently under construction.
That reservoir will become
active next summer.
Just when such a vast quanti-
ty will be needed remains in
question. Although the authori-
ty will need to increase its supply
by 4 million gallons per day by
2013 or 2014, it won't need to
bring on line the next big 15-

Staub


mgd increment until 2017 or
2018, said Mike Coates, authori-
ty engineer.
That projection could be ex-
tended, however, if Florida's eco-
nomic woes continue, warned
authority member Jane von
Hahmann, a Manatee County
commissioner.
"We are now into a significant
downturn and it looks like it's
not coming back for several
years," she said.
Cost: $900 million
Pat Lehman, authority execu-
tive director, pointed out that
the authority in 2005 signed a
contract with Charlotte, Sara-
sota, Manatee and DeSoto
counties. The contract requires
the authority to provide the
amount of water that the coun-
ties project they will need in
seven years.
The projects, which are pro-
jected to cost a total around
$900 million, would tap Flatford


Swamp in Manatee County, Cow
Pen Slough in Sarasota County,
and Shell and Prairie creeks east
of Punta Gorda.
Putnam considered some 13
sites for reservoirs in the Shell
Creek watershed before narrow-
ing those options to three. Two
of the sites would be located far
upstream. Those sites, which
could produce 12 mgd, would
require a 16-mile, 30-inch-di-
ameter pipeline to an existing
pipeline in DeSoto County.
However, one of the Shell
Creek options would put a reser-
voir just upstream from Punta
Gorda's existing reservoir off
Washington Loop Road. That
site would be able to harvest 20
mgd and would require a pipe-
line only 7 miles long, Putnam
said.
"The city of Punta Gorda's
water supply has to be taken in-
to consideration," warned au-
thority member Richard Loftus,
a Charlotte County commis-
sioner.
To withdraw sufficient quan-
tities during peak flow periods,
Putnam suggested a 700-horse-
power pump with a 64-inch-
diameter intake pipe. That's
enough to suck in 65 mgd,
Putnam said.

Flying Bridge redevelopment to proceed


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Redevelopment of the site of
the old Flying Bridge restaurant
on Blackburn Point Road in
Osprey "will proceed," said Mike
Ault, vice president of R&D
Companies, which owns the
property.
A 4-1 vote by the board of
county commissioners recently
rejected R&D's request for a spe-
cial exception to the 35-foot
height limit for a dry-boat-stor-
age building.
Ault said that clean-up opera-
tions on the 4.3-acre parcel at
the swing bridge to Casey Key
are continuing. Dirt dredged
from the Intracoastal Waterway

around the perimeter of the
property will be removed from
the restaurant parking lot start-
ing in about two weeks, he
added. A new gas station and 46
boat slips will be built to replace
old ones.
He said that the clean-up will
continue while R&D, a Naples
developer, determines whether
a marina facility is feasible with a
35-foot height limitation for dry
boat storage.
R&D received approval from
the county for a proposal sub-
mitted by an earlier developer. It
had been turned down in 2006
by the commission. But an ensu-
ing court case put the commis-
sioners in opposition to a coun-
ty advisory panel they had

appointed.
The 12th Judicial Circuit
Court sided with the county
planning commission, which
had approved, and the develop-
er sold the property to R&D.
Twenty-one luxury condo-
miniums of about 3,500 square
feet each in three buildings, 46
covered boat slips and about
26,000 square feet of office and
commercial space were pro-
posed at the time.
The $15.4 million purchase
price for the site was, in 2006, the
second highest for waterfront
property in Southwest Florida.
R&D had sought permission
to put up a 55-foot-high building

A relatively
new product in
the construction
industry that is
environmentally
friendly is wood-
plastic compos-
ite, a composite
lumber materi-
alusuallymade
of a 50/50 mix of
recycled plastics,
and wood waste W
such as sawdust,
wood chips and shav-
ings, old shredded pallets,
etc.
Major advantages over
wood is the ability of the mate-
rial to be molded into various
shapes and sizes; be cut and
shaped using conventional
woodworking tools; and resist
moisture and rot resistant.
Another advantage is that the


material comes in a variety of
colors, thus eliminating the
need to paint. A 20-year prod-
uct warranty is
common.
One major
WPC manufac-
turer claims it
has kept more
than 6 million
pounds of scrap
plastic and
wood out of
landfills. This
includes 1.5 bil-
SV lion grocery bags
per year.
Local applications of
WPC can be seen at the
Venice Pier, a number of
cross-over and deck upgrades
along the dunes at various
beaches and the elevated
walkway adjacent to Darby
Buick on the Venetian
Waterway Park.
The planet it's worth
saving.

CITY NOTES

COMPILED BY NEWS
EDITOR GREG GILES


Conservation site
gets cool reception
A second version of the
planned Legacy Park in
Venice was downplayed by
city council at its Sept. 23
meeting.
It wasn't so much that
council members didn't
like the idea; it may just
have been premature, as
the city is still in the
process of negotiating to
purchase the property.
Parks and Recreation
Advisory Board Chair
Monty Andrews presented
his board's vision of the
park, anchored by a con-
servation center. Like
Sarasota's Florida House,
the conservation site
would display various
energy and resource saving
devices such as solar pan-
els, a tankless water heater,
low-flow water fixtures,
low-voltage bulbs, eco-
friendly flooring and more.
The building could be
manned by volunteer mas-
ter conservationists or
master gardeners, Andrews
said. Adjacent to the build-
ing would be native plant
areas where Florida friend-
ly plants and shrubs would
be planted and identified.
Andrews said the site
would compliment the
Florida House, which
draws about 10,000 visi-
tors each year.
Council Member John
Moore said he liked the
idea, but questioned the
location.
"(It) may be a little pre-
mature as to this location,"
Moore said. "I would think
the conservation facilities
could be put in other loca-
tions as well."
Months ago former city
manager Marty Black pre-
sented a staff recommen-
dation for Legacy Park
anchored with a solar panel
demonstration field. It was
based on numerous com-
ments by city council and
others who said they sup-
ported eco-friendly pro-
jects. Council nixed that
idea.

Council security
Last month Council
Member John Simmonds
expressed interest in having
a uniformed Venice police
officer present once again
at city council meetings.


SUN NEWSPAPERS 3A


Council asked Police Chief
Julie Williams to look into it.
Williams came back
with a memo dated Sept.
16 in which she said the
present staffing level "does
not allow for an on-duty
officer to be available to
provide security at council
meetings." She cited a
reduction of five officers
since 2006 and increased
demands on officers.
Williams did, however,
offer to provide one if
council would pay for it
- approximately $24,700
annually.
Florida Bar: Ethics
charge unfounded
The Florida Bar on Sept.
17 ruled that an ethics
charge against land-use
attorney Jeff Boone is
unfounded.
The ethics charge was
filed by John Patten, aWeb
editor and board member
of the Venice Taxpayers
League. Patten claimed
Boone threatened him
with criminal charges in a
motion filed in the ongo-
ing Sunshine lawsuit.
Patten published a
private e-mail between
Council Member John
Simmonds and Art Nadel,
owner of the Venice Jet
Center. Boone sought to
find out how Patten came
into possession of the e-
mail, including whether he
had somehow gotten it
from Simmonds' computer.
Patten refused to answer;
Boone filed a motion to
compel an answer, but later
dropped the matter. Patten
said it was a frivolous action
by Boone designed to
harass him and filed an
ethics complaint.
The Bar found the
motion by Boone was not
frivolous, nor did it "threat-
en you with criminal
charges." It closed the file.
Moore resigns
from board
City Council Member
John Moore submitted his
resignation as liaison to
the Venice MainStreet
Board on Sept. 5.
"After more than five
years as (liaison) I think it's
time for me to step aside
and give the board an
opportunity to appoint
another council member
to serve in that capacity,"
Moore said.
"I am especially proud of
the work that the board has

Venice woman
in critical condition
A 21-year-old Venice
woman is in critical condi-
tion Tuesday after the
vehicle she was driving
collided with another out-
side of Maryville, Tenn.
Police said a man in an
Ford F-150 hit Brittany
Lynn Green's Saturn head-
on after losing control of
his vehicle in the opposite
lane.
Green was flown by
Lifestar helicopter to the
University of Tennessee's
medical center and was
listed in critical condition.
The driver of the F-150 did
not survive.

Deadly crash
The tractor trailer that
crashed into a van Monday
in Moore Haven, Fla.,
killing sixpeople, belonged
to West Coast Aggregate
Haulers Inc. ofVenice.
A Florida Highway Patrol
incident report states that
at around 6:30 a.m., Ewing
Saunders, 66, was hauling
sand through the area
when he ran a stop sign
and struck the right side of
a van carrying six field
workers. None of the van's
passengers survived.
Authorities said some
of the passengers were
not carrying identification
cards. Hispanic advocates
are working with authori-
ties to identify the victims


and inform their families.
Saunders was taken to
a hospital with serious
but non-life-threatening
injuries. An investigation
of the crash is continuing
and possible charges are
pending.

New law aims to curb
scrap-metal theft
Authorities are hoping a
new state law will make it
tougher for thieves to sell
stolen scrap metal to recy-
cling centers.
Effective Oct. 1, people
taking items to recycling
dealers must complete a
form with their personal
information, and provide
a thumbprint or photo for
filing purposes. In turn,
dealers must also photo-
graph and describe the
materials being recycled,
and must include infor-
mation on the vehicle that
hauls the metals.
The new law will require
recyclers to keep their
records on file for up to five
years. Failure to do so is a
misdemeanor for the first
and second violation, and
a felony if it occurs a third
time.

Swiftmud extends water restrictions


The water restriction order was slated to expire Sept. 30.


FROM SWIFTMUD

The Southwest Florida
Water Management Dis-
trict's governing board
voted to extend the cur-
rent Water Shortage Order,
which restricts lawn
watering throughout the
district to one-day-per-
week, through Feb. 27,
2009.
The board extended the
order because the region is
still affected by the two-
year drought and portions
of the district did not
receive enough rain dur-
ing the annual wet season.
Following two years of
drought, the area was
beginning to see normal
rainfall patterns return.
But while the rest of the
state received significant


rainfall from Tropical
Storm Fay, the storm skirt-
ed our region and subse-
quent tropical systems
brought drier air rather
than rainfall. As a result,
the district is still experi-
encing a 24-month rainfall
deficit.
Rainfall in September,
the last month of our four-
month rainy season, was
below normal and surface
water and ground water
systems started their sea-
sonal declines earlier than
expected.
As of Sept. 22, ground-
water levels for the north-
ern, central and southern
regions of the district have
already peaked and are
beginning to decline. The
southern region includes
Charlotte, DeSoto, Hardee,


Highlands, Manatee and
Sarasota counties.
Stream flows also have
peaked and are beginning
to decline on all major
rivers within the district.
Due to low streamflows,
the public supply systems
served by Tampa Bay Wat-
er and the Peace River/
Manasota Regional Water
Supply Authority remain
at-risk due to low storage.
Both regional suppliers
continue to rely on emer-
gency authorizations to
help meet current water
demand.
Lake levels throughout
the district remain severe-
ly affected by the drought.
Lakes in the southern
region, which includes the
Polk Uplands region and
the Lake Wales Ridge re-


gion, are 3.6 to 6.7 feet low-
er than expected.
The water shortage
order, which has been in
effect since Jan. 16, 2007,
was slated to expire Sept.
30.

on the current drought,

WATER from Page 1A
Bated breath
At Flatford Swamp, located in the
upper Myakka River watershed, Putnam
offered several possible locations for a
400 horsepower pump and a 1,000-acre
reservoir, including one site near a uni-
versity.
The swamp water would be pumped
from the reservoir to the Carlton Reserve
water treatment plant, located 14 miles to
20 miles away, depending on which site is
chosen, Putnam said.


marine operations, such
as marinas and storage of
watercraft," said Charles
D. Bailey III, R&D's attor-
ney.
New dry-boat-storage
facilities have typically
been 55 feet to 65 feet high
in Southwest Florida the
past several years.
Area economists have
noted that waterfront land
costs have made develop-
ment of new marinas pro-
hibitive.


The Cow Pen Slough proposal offers
advantages because Sarasota County
already owns two potential reservoir
sites, and gravity, instead of pumps, could
be used to move the water, Putnam said.
The authority is set to consider the
options and their estimated costs at
a workshop Nov. 3 in Sarasota.
"We're holding our breath until the
workshop," said member Shannon Staub,
a Sarasota County commissioner.

But, area delegate Shan-
non Staub, chair of the
Sarasota County commis-
sion, said she was most
impressed with the way
the broad spectrum of
stakeholders at the meet-
ing voiced support for pro-
tecting natural water re-
sources for the sake of the
ecosystem.
The congress voted to
include only the top 18
action items on its priority
list and the environment
was ranked higher than
that, within the top 24,
Staub said.
"I was really surprised
with the amount of weight
that was given to the envi-
ronment by everyone -
agriculture, private utili-
ties," Staub said. "I mean, it
was like, yes, we want
water but we have to pre-
serve and protect the envi-
ronment at the same time.
"I think it was an ac-
knowledgement that peo-
ple need water, but if we
don't keep the environ-
ment preserved and pro-
tected, we're not going to do
very good in getting water
for people," she added.
The water congress was
organized by the state's
Century Commission for a
Sustainable Florida. The
commission will use the
congress' conclusions to
draft a report on water pol-
icy. The report is to be pre-
sented to the governor and
Legislature by January.
Thursday, the 120 mem-
bers broke into a half dozen
work groups to hash out
what actions should be con-
sidered. Friday, the group
used an electronic voting
device to rank the propos-
als.
The top priority, ac-
cording to the congress, is
to reinstate Senate Bill 444,
which pumped more than
$100 million into alterna-
tive water supply projects
statewide. Alternative sup-
plies are ones that don't
come from groundwater.
The group also voted to
declare "conservation" the
equivalent of a water sup-


ply project. That would
enable conservation pro-
jects, such as those to pur-
chase wetlands, to qualify
for state funding, Staub
said.

OUR VIEW


Trimming mangroves just doesn't cut it


n 1996, the state Legislature passed
a law to protect the mangroves that
line the many miles of Florida's
coastal waters.
Since then, the state Department of
Environmental Protection has docu-
mented some 304 instances of illegal
cutting of mangroves and has assessed
fines in 208 cases. Undoubtably, there
have been more times that shoreline
property owners trimmed thickets of
mangroves, sometimes illegally.
But the state does not have man-
grove police out patrolling against ille-
gal activity, so no one knows how wide-
spread cutting may be. The DEP can
only react to complaints, and those
complaints invariably come from
neighbors who notice something po-
tentially fishy nearby.
Neighbors don't always know a black
mangrove from a Brazilian pepper, said
Andrea Lipstein of Sarasota County's


natural resources protection depart-
ment, so the reports are on the mark
roughly half the time. Still, it does no
harm to call in a potential violator.
Better to check and find no problem
than to ignore a potential violation.
That's because there was good rea-
son for the law in the first place.
Mangroves are a critical component of
the coastal ecosystem. They provide
habitat for marine and bird life. They
improve water quality and act as storm
and wave buffers.
However, they also can grow so high
that they block the view from a water-
front home. They get in the way of docks
and obstruct access to the water. So,
what's the big deal if you snip a few feet
off the top or from the side of the dock?
The big deal can be fines from the
state DEP and compensatory agree-
ments that call for restoration. Still,
there are some who believe the current


state laws aren't strong enough deter
illegal mangrove cutting.
A recent set of stories in the Fort
Myers News-Press laid out the argu-
ments for stiffer penalties, saying essen-
tially that state law often amounted to
nothing more than a slap on the wrist
for violators.
State law calls for civil fines up to
$10,000, criminal fines up to $50,000
and five years in jail. But that sort of
sanction is rare. Of the 208 cases in
which a fine was assessed, nine were
settled for $10,000 or more. Ninety-four
were for $1,000 or less. Since 1997, a lit-
tle more than $500,000 in total fines
have been assessed, according to the
News-Press.
That sounds like a fair sum to us. While
some felt the fines were too low to act as a
true deterrent, there really seemed to be
no way to know what wasn't being cut
and what damage was being done.


Lipstein investigates mangrove
calls for Sarasota County under a
memorandum of understanding the
county has with the state. Since the
beginning of the year, she said, she's
been out on 13 cases. Charlotte
County does not have a similar sys-
tem, but if the county receives a call,
code enforcement officers will check it
out, stop the activity if need be and
refer the matter to the DEP
What is most important at the end of
the day is restoration of damaged areas.
And as for cases when cutting is in
progress, many people simply are not
aware that they may be breaking the
law, Lipstein said. They stop.
The best policy the only policy,
really is to call your county environ-
mental office or the state DEP to find
out what you need to do before picking
up your pruning sheers. Protect yourself
and our coast, bays and canals.

MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


"Freddie and Fannie
went up the Hill to fetch a
little bailout.
Freddie fell down and
broke his crown
And Fannie went the
same route."
That's my version of the
old English rhyme. I wanted
to say that Freddie broke his
ARMs, but couldn't get that
to rhyme right.
Everybody is blaming
everybody else in this de-
bacle, especially with the
upcoming presidential
election. However, the
mortgage lending prob-
lems didn't start yesterday.
The financial crisis fac-
ing the United States of
America and the world
began with the creation in
1994 of a bill to promote
low-income home owner-
ship. President Bill Clinton
signed the bill and that
was the start of "creative
ownership" for applicants
who did not qualify for
fixed mortgages. Financ-
ing for them largely took
the form of adjustable rate
mortgages.
These ARMs began low,
but are based on the mar-
ket. As the market chang-
ed, the rates rose to the
point that homeowners
could no longer make their
payments. Foreclosures on
the ARM properties began
and like dominoes cascad-
ing onto one another, the
current financial melt-
down began.
Both Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac were essen-
tially and quietly taken
over by the Clinton admin-
istration and its support-
ers. A Clinton pal, Fannie
Mae Chief Franklin Raines,
is reported to have accu-
mulated a personal wealth
of $100 million. Jamie
Gorlick, another Clinton
buddy, is also said to be
worth in excess of $100
million. She was vice chair
of Fannie Mae a seem-
ingly appropriate title.
In 2004, as mortgage
firms and investment
banks heavily leveraged by
ARM mortgages started to
be adversely affected by
the number of foreclo-
sures, the current financial
crisis began in earnest.
Presidential candidate
Barack Obama is said to be
the third-largest recipient
of Fannie Mae's political
contributions, reported at


more than $100,000 in less
than four years. Democrats
Sen. Chuck Schumer and
Rep. Barney Frank have also
allegedly benefited from
this financial crisis through
hefty contributions.
Back in 2005, Fannie and
Freddie were on the ropes.
They were enmeshed in
accounting scandals that
led to turnover at the top. In
an article by Peter Wallison,
the Securities and Ex-
change Commission's chief
accountant, he told Frank-
lin Raines, that Fannie's
position on the relevant
accounting issue was not
even "on the page" of allow-
able interpretations.
In 2005, Alan Green-
span told Congress: "If
Fannie and Freddie con-
tinue to grow, continue to
have the low capital that
they have, continue to
engage in the dynamic
hedging of their portfolios,
which they need to do for
interest rate risk aversion,
they potentially create ever-
growing potential systemic
risk down the road. We are
placing the total financial
system of the future at a
substantial risk."
Next, a Fannie and Fred-
die reform bill was created
and passed by the Senate
Banking Committee. The
bill gave regulators the
power to crack down on
companies engaged in risky
investments.
The bill didn't become
law because Democrats op-
posed it on a party line vote
in the committee. Repub-
licans could not even get
the Senate to vote on the
matter. Those who ap-
parently protected Fannie
and Freddie included Bar-
ack Obama, Hillary Clinton
and Christopher Dodd.
Oh, and there is one little
footnote. Sen. John McCain
was one of the three co-
sponsors of Senate Bill 190,
the bill that would have
averted this mess.
"Up Jack got and home
did trot as fast as he could
caper.
They put him to bed
and cleaned his head
With vinegar and brown
paper."
PS. I am meticulous
about giving sources when I
quote other columnists,
newspapers, etc. My Sept.
19 column's last paragraph
"A Quiz: Who Am I" was a
piece that was circulating
on the Internet. Like most
humor that is circulated on
the Internet, no source was
given, but I thought it was
cute and wanted to share it.
I later found out it may have
first appeared as a letter to
the Wall Street Journal.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


It's representative government, you know


Editor:
I have a hard time accepting Sue Lang as a represen-
tative of the citizens who elected her. I have never seen
an elected representative trying to force a personal agen-
da on the citizens as she is doing. She seems to be
obsessed with eliminating the Venice airport as her final
goal.
This latest vision of hers is unbelievable: trying to
reduce the airport to only single-engine airplanes, rec-
ommending we divert various flight operations and
businesses to other airports. Now she does not want the
noise study to be done because it could disagree with her
complaint that there is a noise problem.
The airport is a very big plus for the city and it is a
great asset to making the city more desirable to future
business and residents. The Venice business community
cannot survive without positive change and growth.
Even controlled growth is very important to the health of
a community.
From what I read, Florida is becoming less desirable
to baby boomers who want to retire. To attract these peo-
ple, everything should be done to make Venice a more
diverse community in which to live and visit than other
Florida areas. A viable, vibrant airport and downtown
business section are both assets that will attract these
retirees, as it did when we moved here.
In conclusion, I believe Sue Lang is not a good repre-
sentative on council as she does not represent the citi-
zens without bias. The next election will reveal how the
majority of residents feel.

Palin's religiosity
scares him
Editor:
I was raised in a Chris-
tian evangelical commu-
nity. Magazines, radio, TV,
movies, alcohol, Roman
Catholicism, Judaism, etc.,
were all condemned.
Even as a child I knew
that our church had a very
dark view of the world.
When I hear news like the
Jonestown deaths, Plan-
ned Parenthood bomb-
ings, the Waco tragedy,
Mormon preteen polyga-
mist wives and Muslim
suicide bombings, I think


back to the primitive doc-
trines of that church.
Jehovah's Witnesses told
me, a biology teacher, that
teaching the principles of
evolution, a basis of biolo-
gy, agriculture and medi-
cine, was sinful. Seventh
Day Adventists said they
could not permit blood
transfusions, and could
not eat "bloody" beets. I
knew Christian Science
members who rejected the
germ theory of disease.
Where Sarah Palin fits
in the spectrum of reli-
gious extremism is diffi-
cult to say. Book-banning,


commercial exploitation
of women by beauty pag-
eant promoters and Chris-
tian parables over princi-
ples of science are all ac-
ceptable to her. She claims
to be pro-life but is pro-
war. She does not con-
demn alcohol, but is
aligned with a candidate
whose political career has
been financed by his wife's
beer-distribution fortune.
She is more accepting of
teen pregnancy and vene-
real disease than she is of
health education. These
things we know.
What we don't know is
how far back she would set
our country in foreign pol-
icy, science, medicine,
agriculture and technolo-
gy if she is elected. The
prospect should scare all
voters.

Vote for money,
or for yourself
Editor:
This letter to the editor
is addressed to the work-
ing-class people: You have
to get out in November
and vote. Don't take the
attitude that it won't do
you any good, because if
you do, it's going to be the
same thing for the next
four years.
The rich people make
sure they vote. That is why
they win.
Don't go by what you
see on TV; go by what they
did for the last four years.
We need a change and
we need it fast, or we will
be back in the bread line
like we were after the last


stock market crash in the
1930s.
Don't let race sway your
vote; we need Obama. He
will work to help the work-
ing class get back to a
decent life before it's too
late.
The rich people don't
care about the country. They
just care about money.

It's what got King
George in trouble
Editor:
The possibility of the
maintenance code re-
minds us of wording in the
Declaration of Indepen-
dence by Congress on July
4,1776, due to many abus-
es by the King of England.
It stated that, "He has
erected a multitude of new
Offices, and sent hither
swarms of Officers to ha-
rass our people and eat
out their substance."
If this code is adopted,
we can expect more public
employees, more waste,
government by fear, high-
er taxes, fees and fines to
take our money. It will
allow enforcement or non-
enforcement for bureau-
cratic pleasure randomly.
If you think you have
seen bad government be-
fore, more is coming if this
passes.

What would you ask the next president?


LORI K. PARHAM
GUEST COLUMNIST


Imagine that you have
the opportunity to talk to
the next president of the
United States, and you can
ask one question. What
would you ask the next
president?
Recently AARP sent out
an e-mail giving members
in Florida the opportunity
to respond to that ques-
tion. We received more
than 300 responses from
across the state.
Topics such as long-
term care, health care,
financial security and
bipartisanship topped the
list of most frequently ask-
ed questions.
Sharon of Summerfield
wanted to know if the cost
of insurance would be
lowered.
"If you are elected pres-
ident, what will you do to
make health insurance
more affordable for middle
income families?" asked
Fran of Deland.
With more than 47 mil-
lion people in America -
more than 3 million of
those in Florida without
health insurance, it's not
surprising that affordable
health insurance is a prior-
ity for many families. One-
third of those without
health insurance in this


country are small business
owners, according to the
National Federation of In-
dependent Business. They
simply can't afford the high
cost of buying insurance
for themselves, their fami-
lies or their employees.
Many of the questions
related to health care and
insurance came from peo-
ple who fall between the
cracks. They might be too
young to qualify for Medi-
care or simply earn too
much to qualify for certain
benefits.
Those fortunate enough
to have health insurance
also have concerns as med-
ical costs, deductibles and
co-payments increase.
Many American families
are one major medical ill-
ness away from bankrupt-
cy.
Social Security and the
question of what the presi-
dent would do to ensure
that hard-working Amer-
icans would be able to
retire was the topic of sev-
eral questions.
Dave of St. Petersburg
posed the question, 'As
our population is aging,
how do you plan to ensure
that Social Security bene-
fits will not only be contin-
ued, but that they will
increase with the cost of
living so that Social Se-
curity is a viable source of
income for the elderly/re-
tired population?"
The truth is many
Americans might not be
able to retire. Traditional
pensions are disappear-
ing, and few Americans
have more than $25,000
saved for retirement.
We're living longer, but
medical, housing and food
costs also are skyrocketing.

Register to vote


According to recent sur-
veys, many middle-class
Americans are outliving
their savings.
America has to do a bet-
ter job. And, several mem-
bers, like Ron of Orlando,
wanted to know how the
next president would work
to end partisan bickering
and gridlock in Washing-
ton.
These questions reflect
the concerns of many
Floridians and Americans.
For the past year, Divided
We Fail has worked to raise
the voices of millions of
people who are tired of
partisan gridlock and want
to see real bipartisan solu-
tions on the issues of
health care and financial
security.
We've heard and col-
lected stories about the
real problems people face
everyday. Some of those
stories are shared on our
Web site at http://www.
dividedwefail.org/. These
stories serve to show that
solving these issues is criti-
cal to the daily lives of
Americans.
Eugene of Lutz asked if
the next president would
be willing to be subjected
to an annual "grade card"
listing campaign promises
and how they are faring.
In reality, it is the voters
- the thousands who
have signed our Divided
We Fail pledge who will
be looking and "grading"
the next president on
these issues.

LET 'EM HAVE IT: SHOULD VENICE CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS WHO SERVE AT LEAST SIX YEARS
GET FREE HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR LIFE? CALL US AT 207-1111.


Nice work if you can get it


Unheard of. I depend on the Gondolier Sun for my
news, and I was shocked to learn from a story in the
paper this week that our elected officials have free health
insurance for themselves and their families, indefinitely.
That's unheard of in business. I retired after 30 years with
one company and I pay 100 percent of my own health
insurance costs. That's the way it should be. Our elected
officials are getting away with murder.


Fire them. What in the
world is happening to our
Venice schools, with
teachers abusing our chil-
dren? I think the principals
at those schools should
either be fired or made to
go get training on how to
make sure that the staff
members are treating our
children fairly and safely.
It's just ridiculous that two
of our schools have abu-
sive teachers as staff mem-
bers. Let's fire those princi-
pals and get someone in
there that will make sure
the teaching staff know
what's expected.
Waste. I have a com-
ment/question on code
enforcement in South
Venice. On my street I have
a house that regularly has
weeds go up to 4 to 5 feet
tall. The code enforcement
gives them 30 days to cut
the lawn, and then it grows
right back to 3, 4 and 5 feet
again. Correct me if I'm
wrong, but it sounds like
an extreme waste of tax
dollars to be reminding
these people that their


grass is 4 and 5 feet high
and needs to be cut. I think
it should be a violation like
a speeding ticket. Every
time you speed, they give
you a ticket. They don't
give you 30 days to slow
down. You break the law,
like you would be breaking
a code, pay a fine, period.
There's a lot of money
being wasted right now
with the county trying to
cut back on taxes and
costs and trim the budget,
and they're paying a code
enforcement officer, what-
ever he makes, to go out to
certain properties once a
month to tell people
something that they
should already be doing. It
seems like an extreme
waste of money. It's some-
thing our local county offi-
cials need to look into.
Sign language. In
response to the political
signs that have dominated
our area again and not
been taken down immedi-
ately after, I really, really
believe that we should
have more rules and more


fines to get these people to
take these down. They're
disruptive, a nuisance and
they just look horrible.
Accountability. I want
to know why banks are
taking the loss on people
who bought one house or
a couple of houses when
the market was going high
and thought they'd turn
them over and make a
quick buck. Why are the
banks taking the loss and
letting these people skate
away from money that is
due? These people are
leaving the house without
any loss, moving out of
state, buying new cars and
just letting the bank have
the house and take the
loss. Why are the banks not
holding the people re-
sponsible? That is what I
would like to know. People
who have houses, who pay
every month and pay what
they should, in the end are
paying for these people
who should not have
bought these houses when
they did. I think the people
should be held responsible
for the money that they
owe.
Shell game. I'm sitting
at the new Nokomis Beach
Pavilion and you'd think
for a million bucks you'd
get a paved parking lot.
Broken shells thanks a
lot.

Venice attorney s son opens law office
/ I


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


The son of a well-known
Venice attorney has recent-
ly opened his own office:
Frank C. Wheeler, PA., 871
Venetia BayBlvd., Suite 350,
near the Hampton Inn. He
specializes in residential
and commercial real estate,
estate planning and pro-
bate administration.
A graduate of Venice
High School, he obtained
his law degree at Stetson
University. Working for
private sector companies,
he gained knowledge and
experience of the com-
mercial world before re-
turning to Venice to prac-
tice with his father, Charlie
Wheeler, for nine years.
Then he moved to a bigger
law firm in downtown
Sarasota, concentrating
on commercial and lend-
ing work for two and half
years.
"I always wanted my
own business," said Wheel-
er, a resident of Nokomis.
Office hours are 8:30
a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays. Call
484-8309.
Spa opening yoga
and tai chi studio
Annette and Marc
Michaels, owners of Spa
Venice, 225 W Miami Ave.,
have announced major
expansion plans.


"We are shooting to
open our new tai chi and
yoga studio on Oct. 15 and
certainly by Halloween,"
said Marc Michaels.
With the acquisition of
the adjoining 2,000-
square-foot unit, they
have extended the bam-
boo molding decor of Spa
Venice into the new stu-
dio. Reservations are being
taken for classes covering
all stages of yoga and tai
chi, including private one-
on-one for beginners to
very advanced students.
Accessories, clothing and
related items will be avail-
able in the Yoga Boutique.
The spa offers skin care;
bodywork; shiatsu, cou-
ples and four-handed
massage; facials; and per-
manent make-up. Both
facilities open at 8 a.m.
Monday through Satur-
days and are open Sunday
afternoons. Call 480-9009.
One-on-one
computing help
If like many retiree
computer users you know
the basics of this modem
technology but wish you
could make a Christmas
card list, attach digital
photographs to e-mails or
open attachments, here is
a helpful company: PC
Solutions, 312 E. Venice
Ave., Suite 207 in the Sea-
board Office Park, under
the Venice Avenue Bridge.
It offers one-on-one per-
sonal computer coaching.
Owner Chuck String-
ham, of Kennebunk,
Maine, has operated PC
Solutions providing busi-
ness-orientated services
and Mighty Mouse Com-
puters supporting home
users for 25 years. Arriving
in Venice this year with his


wife, Cathy, he realized his
experience and knowl-
edge could be shared with
local computer users.
"I like to help people
understand the technolo-
gies available today and
make their lives better,"
said Stringham.
He provides home and
business service calls to-
gether with remote access
advice. Office hours are 9
a.m.-6 p.m. weekdays. Call
244-3996.
Ice cream store open
Yulia Telesheesky has
opened The Ice Cream
House, 1200 Jacaranda
Blvd., near the former dri-
ver license office. She sells
Working Cow and sugar-
free ice cream, yogurt,
milk shakes, custom-
made sundaes and home-
made cones. Call 496-
7800.
Chickee delays
Last weekend, Casey
Key Fish House, 801
Blackburn Point Road, Os-
prey, reopened following
the annual summer close-
down, but without its new
tiki hut. Owner JimmyVon
Hubertz has experienced
some unexpected delays,
but anticipates the Mic-
cosukee Indians will com-
plete the construction.
The bar and seating will be
added and it likely will
open around Oct. 10.
Walgreens going up
Vertical construction is
progressing at speed on
the new Walgreens Phar-
macy, 4105 Pointe Plaza
Blvd. The opening date
was unavailable at press
time.

Medicare plan terminated; help available


FROM THE DEPARTMENT
OF ELDER AFFAIRS


Volunteer counselors with the Flor-
ida Department of Elder Affairs'
SHINE Program are now available to
help guide more than 16,400 Florida
Medicare beneficiaries in 23 counties
who were affected by the termination
of the federal government's Medicare
Advantage contract with MD Medicare
Choice.
The federal Centers for Medicare &
Medicaid Services terminated the
contract after the state Office of
Insurance Regulation obtained a
court order placing the plan into
receivership.
The affected Medicare bene-
ficiaries were enrolled in a
Humana plan offering similar
health care and prescription
drug benefits. However, they
have until Jan. 31 to choose
alternate coverage if they
wish.
SHINE counselors are
available to provide ob-
jective information to
help affected beneficia-
ries make that decision.


Florida Medicare beneficiaries or their
representatives can reach a SHINE volun-
teer counselor through the
state's Elder Helpline,
(800) 963-5337.
Information regard-
ing SHINE counseling
sites in local communi-
ties may also be found
online at www.Florida
SHINE.org.
I SHINE, which stands
for Serving Health Insurance
Needs of Elders, is a volunteer
program that provides free, unbi-
ased one-on-one counseling and
community education regarding
S Medicare options and prescrip-
tion drug assistance for Medicare
beneficiaries.
Former members of MD Med-
icare Choice who wish to use the
special enrollment period to choose
another plan should call either
SHINE or Medicare at (800) MEDI-
CARE.

pany may contact the plan at (800) 758-

State directors laud downtown


The 2008 Florida State
MainStreet Annual Con-
ference has come and
gone. I'd like to share a few
of the comments I re-
ceived from MainStreet
directors about Venice:
"The most beautiful
downtown I have seen." "I
wish my city had what you
have downtown." "The
shops are all so great and
the owners were so friend-
ly." "I walked all over
downtown Venice and
every street is unique. You
are so lucky."
We are unique, and not
just in the beauty of our
downtown. We have a
downtown filled with en-
trepreneurial shop and
business owners who are
surviving and thriving
even in this down econo-


my. Our business owners
have planned ahead,
made adjustments and are
weathering this economic
storm; here in Venice all is
not doom and gloom.
We have many, many
more new businesses and
business expansions than
closures. Venice Island
Purses, Spa Venice and
Gulf Coast Gift Baskets just
have recently opened on
Miami Avenue. Cleopatra's
and Erlenbach Studio have
moved to larger quarters.
Newly opened SpaVenice is
expanding already.
Collector's Gallery, The
Islander, Eden Spa and
Holiday Dreams and
Memories have new own-
ers ready to take their
place in our downtown
family. Back Eddy Bistro is
a recently opened restau-
rant on Miami Avenue,
while Cassariano's on Ven-
ice Avenue is just a year
old and has already open-
ed a second restaurant out
on 41. I haven't even men-
tioned the businesses that
have signed leases but
have not yet opened their
doors.
So, in response to the
comments I received from
the Florida MainStreet
conference attendees: Yes,
I am lucky lucky to work


with so many people who
care greatly about Venice,
who work so hard and
bring positive energy to
our beautiful downtown.
Thank you.
I would also like to say
thank you to John Ryan
and the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce
for all their help at the
Florida MainStreet Annual
Conference. Charleen My-
ers, Victoria Newman, Syl-
vester Sawyer, Sheryl Cor-
gan, Dori Hunt, Mary
Elizabeth Petty, Coco Hib-
bitts and Loraine Castelli
all gave their time to help
make the conference a
huge success. Again, thank
you.
Important Downtown-
er update: The Down-
towners Volunteer Kickoff
is Nov. 12, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at

ty to serve the Venice we
love. Questions? Call 485-

Real estate as I see it

Expect economy to bounce back


TIM PARADISO
REAL ESTATE
COLUMNIST


Is there optimism amid
the turmoil?
In recent weeks we have
witnessed economic stress
on the national and inter-
national landscape of a
magnitude that has not
existed in our generation.
The shutdown of the
financial marketplace has
even filtered down to the
Venice area.
Our small sunshine
community has witnessed
brokerage firms with a local
presence ceasing to exist
and banks on the brink of
disaster being rescued by
larger, and hopefully more
viable, institutions.
Local business people,
retirees and workers are all
feeling the credit pinch
created, in part, by an
overzealous Wall Street
and a lack of adequate
oversight. The "keep your
money safe" syndrome is
now setting in. People who
are seeking peace of mind


want to feel secure and be
able to actually touch the
money they are now trans-
ferring from banks to their
mattresses.
All is not lost. Your
Social Security check will
not bounce, local stores
will still accept your mon-
ey and the ATM machine
will not spit out IOUs
instead of cash.
To move forward in this
climate we should be look-
ing to the solutions of the
future and not the prob-
lems of the past. Sharpen
your pencil and think
"smart" while not becom-
ing complacent.
Some real estate prices
are 40 to 50 percent lower
than just three years ago,
creating an extraordinary
buying opportunity with a
smorgasbord of very tasty
choices for the shrewd real
estate diner.
The local real estate
market that had been
showing signs of recovery
has flatlined again, mainly
due to the tightening of
mortgage money and
credit. Lenders have not
been able or willing to
finance business and resi-
dential real estate transac-
tions in the traditional
sense. Confidence in the
local economy will return
as soon as the federal gov-
ernment begins to infuse
new funds into the system
to make everyday transac-
tions a reality.


In the meantime, watch
for wide swings in interest
rates before any meaning-
ful stabilization of the
credit markets and a re-
turn to what can be con-
sidered normalcy can oc-
cur. Fortunately, attractive
government-backed
home loans such as FHA
and VA are still available
and are currently fueling
what real estate business
there is in the lower and
moderate price range of
our local industry.
To select a community
to live in while anticipat-
ing a recovery, one could
not make a wiser choice
than Venice, Fla. Our area
is highly rated nationally
as a vacation and retire-
ment destination and
widely renowned for its
beauty and amenities.
A vibrant downtown in
which you can bike to
everything makes it an
attractive and "reachable"
business environment. Lo-
cal and state leaders are
providing tax reductions
and incentives, creating
even more economical rea-
sons to own a home in
Venice.
Now is the time to un-
lock your dreams of home
ownership and enjoy the
Venice area lifestyle to its
fullest.
Tim Paradiso has held
a real estate license since
1964 and has been a Ven-
ice resident since 1972.


Shopping, lunch make a great day out


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Six guests from Jacaranda Trace retire-
ment community in Venice participated
in the first Ladies Morning Out event
organized by Sandy McGowan, owner of
Sandy's Designer Clothing, 128 W. Venice
Ave.
Armed with discount coupons, they
shopped in the store for one and a half
hours.
"It has been an enjoyable shopping
spree and fun," they commented as they
departed with bags of purchases to enjoy
lunch at Caf6 Venice.
McGowan coordinated the event with
Kay Kopac, owner of Caf6 Venice. Two
friends assisted McGowan in providing
personal service to the guests.
"I'm looking to do more," said
McGowan, adding, "and some downtown
business friends provided bags of gifts
and coupons to give away."

VENICE HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL





Indians' home streak snapped


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice High School head vol-
leyball coach Brian Wheatley said
before the season started that this
could be the year. He just didn't
think it would be this easy.
For the first time since Sept. 19,
2001, a visiting team came into the
Teepee for a regular-season match
and left with a victory Wednesday.
The streak is over at 53.
"The streak's not that impor-
tant," Wheatley said. "I'm more
disappointed with the way we
played."
Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas
Aquinas put Venice away in three,


25-22, 25-22, 25-23. Although
Venice (12-7) beat the Raiders in
pool play of the Gator Town
Classic earlier this season, the
Indians were no match for the size
and experience Aquinas brought
to the floor.
The Raiders (11-3) feature four
seniors and six players listed at 5-
foot-11 or taller. Venice has no
seniors and just two players taller
than 5-foot-11. Six-foot senior
Brittany Linder accounted for
seven of Aquinas' 21 blocks. Five-
foot-11 outside hitter Kelly Marble
totaled 12 kills in the match, six of
which came in game one. Venice
managed just seven team blocks.
"Good, power volleyball is


played on top of the net and we
just weren't really aggressive,"
Wheatley said. "We didn't do a
good job of finishing off our game
tonight."
Venice fell behind 11-5 early in
game one and couldn't quite
come back, but the Indians led 4-
0 and 8-2 in game two. Aquinas
battled back and tied it at 10 and
after nine more ties the Raiders
pulled away to 22-20.
The Indians came close to forc-
ing at least a fourth game. Venice
led game three 22-19, but Aquinas
closed the match on a 6-1 run for
the win.
Junior Dorothy Rahal led
Venice with 11 kills, followed by


junior Emily Daniels with eight.
Junior Whitney Steranko had five
kills and an ace. Junior Jillian Allen
finished with five kills. Junior
Taylor Capasso led Venice defen-
sively with 15 digs, followed by
Rahal and Daniels with 11 each.
Things are already looking up
for the Indians. Venice takes on
District 5A-12 foe Southeast High
School Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. A win
would give Venice a perfect 7-0
district record and the top seed in
the district tournament, which
takes place at Venice High School
beginning Oct. 27. Venice has
won 12 of the last 14 district
championships.

High School 195-258. Casey
Kennedy and Crystal Smith car-
ried the team with a 36 and a 37,
respectively, but every beginning
player broke 70 for the first time
this season.
Taylor Olson shot a season-low
59 and Maggie Kowalik rounded
out the scoring with a 63.
In boys action, Venice played
the longest course they will play
this season at Pine Valley Golf
Club in Englewood Thursday. The
Indians scores were higher, but
they still defeated Lemon Bay
High School going away 161-186.
Tyler Jones (38), who has been
shooting low through the last
three matches, shot under 40 for
the third straight time. His was the
low round of the day. Tim
Garofalo (40), Erick Bennett (40)
and Frank Perilli (43) rounded out
the scoring for the Indians.
The 3,600-yard course was dif-
ficult for everyone as the scores
were up from the last two match-
es. Perilli said the shortest club he
used all day was a six-iron.
"(Our score) doesn't surprise
me much," boys head coach
Marty Tarala said. "It was tough
for some guys."
Next up for both teams is the
Donald Ross Invitational at Sara
Bay Country Club in Sarasota
Monday.
The Ross is an 18-hole junior


tournament that typically attracts
the area's best players. The course
is also more challenging than any-
thing the boys or girls teams have
seen this year.
"It's definitely a tough
course," girls head coach Wayne
Robertson said. "I think it's a
good challenge, especially for
Crystal and Casey. The greens are


unlike anything we play.
"It's something that I like to do
toward the end of the season to
get us ready for the playoffs."
The girls have two more regu-
lar season matches after the Ross
and the boys have just one before
the District 2A-14 tournament

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL SCOUTING REPORT


Venice's opponent this week: Golden Gate


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


School: Naples Golden Gate High School
District: 3A-14
Record: (0-4, 0-1)
Mascot: Titans
Colors: Black and Gold
Game time: 7:30 p.m. Friday at Golden
Gate High School
Last year
Golden Gate struggled to a 5-5, 2-2
record last year, ending up with no postsea-
son berth. The Titans lost two games
(Collier and Lely high schools) by a com-
bined two points. A win over Lely would
have been enough to go to the playoffs as
the District 3A-14 runner up to Naples High
School. Naples throttled Golden Gate 43-7.
Against Venice in 2007, the Titans
spoiled the Indians' homecoming with a
19-14 upset win at Powell-Davis Stadium.
Although Venice surpassed Golden Gate
in nearly every statistical category (first
downs, rushing yards, passing yards and
completion percentage), the Titans were
able to capitalize on five Venice turnovers.
The Indians put the ball on the ground
seven times in that game, losing four. On
the final Venice drive, then-sophomore
quarterback Trey Burton lost a fumble on
the Golden Gate 15 yard line with 20 sec-


onds to play, sealing the victory for the
Titans.
Last week
The Titans lost to Lely High School 47-
20 last week, but it wasn't as close as it
looks. Lely rolled up 408 yards of total
offense and led 40-6 at the end of the third
quarter. Lely turned the ball over four
times and still won in blowout fashion. A
pair of late touchdowns in garbage time
made this one look more respectable.
This week
The Titans like to throw the ball
around with first-year-starting quarter-
back Kenneth Mouton. Look for them to
do just that.
The 6-foot-i, 181-pound freshman has
had some growing pains, throwing two
touchdowns against seven interceptions,
but he has playmakers to work with at
wideout.
Senior Tony Mitchell leads the receiv-
ing corps with 11 catches for 112 yards
and a touchdown. Junior Devon Woods is
close behind with 10 receptions for 92
yards, and senior Kenny Knopfensteiner
has nine grabs for 63 yards. Junior Brown
Demosthenes has five receptions for 74
yards and a score.
In the run game it's junior running
back Claudius Knowles that leads the


team with 40 carries and 166 yards on the
season. Mouton is mobile enough to
avoid pressure. He's run 27 times for 47
yards.
How Golden Gate can win
Move the football and capitalize when
they get in the red zone. Golden Gate has
converted more first downs (68) in its four
losses than Venice has in its four wins
(54). The Titans moved the chains 16
times in the loss last week.
Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch high
schools both executed schemes to keep
theVenice offense off the field, and there's
no reason Golden Gate can't do the same.
They will need to take it one step further
and actually put some points on the
board or Venice will run away with the
game in the second half the way they
have the last two weeks.
How Venice can win
Don't even utter the "F" word, "fum-
ble," that is. The minute a player starts
worrying about dropping the football is
the minute he does just that.
The Indians need to play the game
they are capable of playing and put last
year's performance out of their mind.
The bottom line
Golden Gate is the first team with


any sort of aerial attack that Venice has
faced all season. That means the Titans'
defense is use to seeing the pass in
practice.
Burton has a big, fat target on his back
in every game he plays. The Golden Gate
secondary will be ready to play. But if the
defense keys on the pass, watch out.
Dri Archer is about due for a big game.
Watch for the senior tailback to break at
least one big one.
Tripp's pick: 45-7
Getting to the game
Take 1-75 South toward Naples. Get off
at Exit 101, CR-951 toward Naples/Marco
Island. Take a left onto CR-951
North/Collier Boulevard toward Golden
Gate. In a half-mile, take a left onto
Magnolia Pond Drive. In less than a mile,
take a right onto Titan Way. End at Golden
Gate High School, 2925 Titan Way,
Naples, FL 34116.
On the radio
If you can't make the trip, tune in to the
Beach 98.9 FM on your radio beginning at
7:15 p.m. for the pregame show. Jay
Higgins and LarryT. will be with you from
kickoff to the final whistle giving you the
live play-by-play.

Cross Family: Ann and
Jim Cross with their twin
daughters, Kelli, far right
and Kalli. The family has
had a year of challenges
which they have faced
with courage and faith.


'Everything happens for a reason'


- even ajourney into devastating illness


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR


After many childless years of mar-
riage, Ann and Jim Cross believed having
children was not in God's plan for them.
Then at age 40, Ann discovered she was
pregnant. Finally, their prayers had been
answered. Fraternal twins Kalli and Kelli
made their debut June 10, 1992.
At first glance one might think the
girls are identical twins, but Kelli has
blue-green eyes and Kalli's eyes are
brown. Both girls have brown hair,
though Kalli's is slightly lighter than
Kelli's. They have easy smiles, are musi-
cally inclined and bonded as only twin
sisters can be.
The healthy babies were blessed with
an abundance of energy and a fair mea-
sure of talent. Both play instruments in
the marching and concert bands; they
dance and they're baton twirlers.
"I'm the Energizer Bunny," Kelli said
describing her energy level.
At least that's the way it used to be.
Her energy level plummeted in
January when she suffered intense eye
and ear pain and an unfamiliar fatigue.
"I kept wanting to fall asleep in class,"
the Venice


High School junior said.
Several trips to the doctor and several
medications later, Kelli wasn't any better.
Eventually she ended up at All Children's
Hospital in St. Petersburg with pneumo-
nia and a lung abscess. Doctor's also
examined her sinuses because of the eye
and ear pain she had experienced, and
then sent her home.
"I really didn't feel any better when I
went home," Kelli said. "My heart kept
racing."
"She was very pale and she couldn't
hardly eat anything," Ann said.
By March 16, Kelli was in real trouble.
The eye and ear pain was severe, her
stomach hurt and her body ached all
over. She told her parents she felt like she
was shutting down.
"I was screaming from the pain," she
said. "I had lost so much weight 15
pounds that even my tailbone hurt."
Ann and Jim rushed Kelli to Venice
Regional Medical Center. Tests showed
her hemoglobin count was extremely
low. She was given a blood transfusion
and was back in All Children's Hospital
by midnight. Two more transfusions fol-
lowed. A kidney biopsy was performed
and, finally, a diagnosis was given.
Kelli has Wegener's granulomatosis, a
disease that inflames her arteries
and veins, reducing the flow of
blood to her vital organs.
Following the blood trans-
fusions and another five days
in the hospital, Kelli felt bet-
ter.


school work over spring break and then
go back to school."
But Kelli's plans were once again
altered by the newly diagnosed disease.
On the first day of spring break, she had
a 106-degree temperature, the eye and
ear pain had increased and she was feel-
ing lethargic.
Kelli spent another 10 days in All
Children's Hospital where she received
her second treatment of Cytoxan.
"They consider the infusion
chemotherapy," Ann said, "but it's not as
in depth as it would be for cancer
patients."


Kelli has received monthly treatments
since March. She's also on a variety of
other medications, including prednisone
which has caused puffiness in her face,
but you won't hear her complaining.

Wanted: Memories of the 'Y'


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Julia Steele, director of
development at the South
County Family YMCA of
Venice and Englewood, is
on a mission. She is seek-
ing Y memorabilia to be
used in a museum-like
display at the Y
The project is an out-
growth of the Y's first Leg-
acy of leadership event,
which will be a tribute to
Jeannette Hanchey Flok-
stra and her late husband
Herb Hanchey Hanchey-
Flockstra has filled several
scrapbooks with photos
and other items for display
at the Oct. 29 Legacy event


at the Venice Yacht Club.
The 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. lun-
cheon is not a fund-raiser
for the Y, simply an event
to honor the Hancheys.
Tickets are $25 per person.
The event is open to the
public.
Steele wants help from
the public to increase the
collection of memorabilia
covering the past three
decades of the Y.
"My long-term goal is to
professionally display all
of this in our YMCA in real
museum-style cases, etc."
she wrote in a recent e-
mail about the project.
Especially sought are
trophies, ribbons, old
team jerseys, uniforms or


T-shirts, as well as old news-
paper clippings, newsletters
and photos. Steele said she
is being assisted in learning
about archival materials
and preservation tech-
niques by members of the
Venice Historical Society. As
such supplies can be costly,
monetary donations would
be helpful.
To learn more about the
luncheon and/or the his-
torical collection, to RSVP

tribute to the collection,
call Steele at the Y at 375-

Sarasota honored for historic preservation program


FROM THE CITY
OF SARASOTA

The federal govern-
ment recognized the city
of Sarasota for its long-
standing commitment to
historic preservation Sept.
19 with a reception at the
historic Federal Building,
111 S. Orange Ave.
Dr. Janet Snyder Mat-
thews, associate director
of Cultural Resources and
keeper, National Register
of Historic Places, present-
ed the city with a Preserve
America Community des-
ignation from the White
House for continued pres-
ervation efforts.
The presentation was
made on behalf of John
Nau, chair of the National
Advisory Council on His-
toric Preservation.
"This is a tremendous
honor," said city of Sara-
sota Senior Planner Clif-


"This is a tremen-
dous honor. For
Dr. Matthews ... to
visit Sarasota ..."
City of Sarasota
Senior Planner
Clifford Smith




ford Smith. "For Dr. Mat-
thews to carve out time in
her busy schedule to visit
Sarasota and recognize the
city's efforts to save his-
toric resources, by speak-
ing in an historic building
which the city actually
preserved it's just won-
derful," said Smith.
The Federal Building
was constructed in 1934
and 50 years later was des-


ignated as an historic
structure. The city of Sara-
sota purchased it in 2001
and renovated to its cur-
rent condition.
The city was designated
last March as a Preserve
America Community, be-
coming one of just 664
such communities in the
nation. The designation
allows the city to apply for
grant money for projects
that promote the contin-
ued preservation of cultur-
al and natural heritage.
A road sign was erected
on Fruitville Road declar-
ing the city of Sarasota as a
Preserve America Com-
munity.
The city of Sarasota has
participated in historic
preservation since 1977
when it first contracted for
a survey of historic struc-
tures. In 1983, the Historic
Preservation Board was
established.


FAMILY from Page 1B
A family coping
Kelli's diagnosis with a long-term ill-
ness was a blow to her family members,
but each of them handles it with quiet
strength while admitting the toll it has
taken.
Ann's dad, the girls' beloved grandfa-
ther, died this summer while the girls
were in band camp. Looking clear-eyed
yet slightly overwhelmed, Ann sighed as
she looked around the house
cluttered with papers from
her father's estate that must
be settled amid chemothera-
py treatments, running a
family and ushering the
girls to endless activities.
"We spent 25 days in a
six-week period in the
hospital," she said.
Jim, a real estate
appraiser, speaks quietly
of his daughter's illness
and what the family has
experienced. He said
people don't know about
or understand Wegener's
granulomatosis,
and they want to
know how Kelli got
"It's been a
tough experience for
all of us," he said. "It
feels like it's been going on for
years."
With early and proper treatment,
Wegener's goes into remission, but the
patient must be monitored carefully and
flare-ups are common.

A twin's pain
Kalli doesn't have to worry about con-
tracting Wegener's. It isn't hereditary or
contagious. Still, she has had to deal with
her sister's illness on a couple of levels.
The twins have never been apart since
they began their lives together.
The girls go to school together every


day. They're in band together and take a
couple of classes together.
"I had to go to school by myself," Kalli
said with just a hint of whine and
reproach in her voice as she grinned at
Kelli. "I didn't get to see her much during
that time."
But when she did see her, it was dis-
concerting.
'At first I just felt something was off,"
Kalli said. "And then I had to see her in
pain."
Both girls are strong and mature
beyond their years. Ann attributes this
to her and Jim being older when the girls
were born and instilling
in them some old-fash-
ioned ideals.
Kelli's response
to her illness indicates
Ann is correct. She's
maintained her A"
average, continues
to twirl baton and
play in the band.
"I've been bless-
ed with talents," she
said, "and I try to use
them."
Kelli said she
really doesn't think of
her illness or ask her-
self why it had to
happen to her. She
said it's helped her
appreciate the small
things.
"It opens your eyes, and you
don't take the small things for granted,"
she said. "I try to be happy with the day
I'm given and the people around me."
Part of her formula for coping is that
when she is ill, she just rolls with it, and
when she's feeling good she puts her
whole self into whatever she's doing. She
believes good will come from her illness.
"It's brought me closer to God, and I
know God has a purpose for this," she
said. "If I can help just one other person
because of what I've gone through, then it
will have been worth it."

As far '
as your
neck is con-
cerned, holding your
head up takes a great deal
of effort. The neck must be
able to bend, turn, and twist
while supporting 10-12
pounds (the weight of the
average adult head). As a result,
neck muscles often develop
) painful kinks. As with back pain,
neck pain may have no readily
identifiable cause; however, poor
posture is usually the culprit. If you
habitually thrust your neck or chin
forward or tilt your head to one side,
your muscles may start aching
under the strain. Awkward head
and neck positions for prolonged
periods may also play a role. A
chiropractic evaluation can
identify improper posture and
harmful habits that may be
causative factors.

High heels: friend or foe?


FROM NAPSA


Once might be a fluke,
but when two Miss USAs
in a row fall while walking
in high heels, you know
women everywhere have a
problem. Both tumbles
happened during the
evening gown competi-
tion in 2007 and 2008.
The much-noted spills
point out the dangers asso-
ciated with wearing high
heels. "Wearing them
affects the entire body, par-
ticularly the knee, hip and
spine," said Gerard W
Clum, D.C., president of Life
Chiropractic CollegeWest in


Hayward, Calif. "The abnor-
mal weight bearing and
stressful posture induced by
high heels can strain both
the lower back and the neck
- not to mention the feet,
ankles and knees."
If high heels are a must,
Dr. Clum advises not to
wear them for more than
two hours a day. So where
does that leave fashion-
conscious women? Well,
no one's saying you have to
stick to flats the rest of the
time. Instead, doctors at the
Foundation for Chiropractic
Progress suggest choosing
heels of two inches in height
or less as a compromise.

Helping to keep




dogs out of shelters


FROM NAPSA

While many Americans
consider their four-foot-
ed friends to be a part of
the family, more than 4
million dogs end up in
shelters every year. Sadly,
nearly half of those
canines never find a
place to call home. Now
it's easier than ever for
dog lovers to find a way
to help.
Kate Walsh, star of tele-
vision's "Private Practice"
and loyal owner of an
adopted dog, partnered
with Pedigree to launch
the Pedigree Adoption
Drive Foundation, a new
nonprofit organization
that provides funding to
select animal shelters and
breed rescues nationwide
in order to help dogs find
loving homes.
"It breaks my heart to
know that there are so
many loving dogs in shel-
ters just waiting to find
homes," Walsh said. "It's
impossible to articulate
the happiness that my
adopted dog Lucy brings
to my life so I'm excited
to be a part of a program
that is committed to rais-
ing awareness of and
funding for these wonder-
ful animals."
It's important to note
that adopting a pet is a
decision that should not
be taken lightly. Caring for
a pet is a big responsibility,
but most dog lovers will
tell you that adding a
canine to your family will
bring a great deal of joy
and happiness. The dog
lovers at Pedigree created
an Adoption Drive to
shine the spotlight on the
plight of homeless dogs.
Here they provide some
tips for responsible pet
adoption:
Make sure your home
is ready for a dog. Many
items in your home can
be harmful or even deadly
to your dog, so doggy-
proof your home in the
same way you might for a
young child. Remember,
the breed of dog you
choose might require more
space to roam.
Consider how your

groups.

pet will fit into your life. In
deciding what type of dog
you should get, consider
what you're looking for in
your future pet. Is it going
to be a fun playmate for
the children or perhaps a
silent soul mate for long
walks? Visit Dogsrule.com
to take the Select-A-Dog
Questionnaire to help
determine what breed is
the best match for your
lifestyle.
Make sure you're
financially prepared to
own a dog. Remember
that toys, training, groom-
ing and medical costs are
important factors in your
budget as an owner. Look
for quality food products
that provide lasting nour-
ishment. Pedigree is the

Learn how to identi-

Providing a collar with an
ID tag or microchip is one
of the first things you
should do as a new
owner. This adds a level of
safety for your pet and
provides piece of mind
for you.
Show your support
Dog lovers who want
to learn more about
adoption and find a shel-

Dogsrule.com for a down-
loadable Adoption Guide
that offers tips and check-
lists handy for first-time
animal shelter visits, vet
trips, and even shopping
for your new four-legged
friend.
Owners can also show
their support for the
cause by making a tax-
deductible donation to
the foundation on the
Web site. Those who
adopt a dog from a local
shelter or breed rescue
anytime during 2008 are
eligible for one month
of free food as a thank-
you from the dog lovers
at Pedigree. Visit www.

join the efforts in sup-
porting dog adoption.

FAITH. VALUES AND LESSONS


SUBMITTED BY DWIGHT DOLBY
PASTOR OF AUBURN ROAD PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH


LOVE, LIFE AND ABSTINENCE
VERSUS THE SAFE-SEX CROWD
The opening pages of the Bible
reveal the tender story of the origins
of human intimacy. It's a story reveal-
ing the rich and beautiful context of a
pristine world and a man and
woman with all their lives before
them. Their love was not contextual-
ized by condoms and the back seat of
a car, but by an intimate desire to
share in the fullness of life and all its
engagements with one soul mate.
We read that God filled the heav-
ens with stars and moons, and
caused innumerable birds to fly
across the face of the sky. He filled
the seas with fish and creatures of
the deep so that the waters were
teaming with life. On dry land, He
created all the shrubs, trees, and
ground cover. The sixth day, the final
day of God's creating work, He
formed all the animals. His last cre-
ative act was to fashion a creature
who would rule over this new world.
He created man. Yet what stands out
in the story of man's creation are the
words of God's assessment, "It is not
good for man to be alone. I will make
a helper suitable for him."
We read that God removed a rib
from Adam as he slept, and fash-


ioned the woman from out of his
own side. When Adam awoke, God
brought the woman to him (thus
fathers walk their daughters down
the aisle). His response was the first
poem of human history, words of
love and intimacy: "This is now bone
of my bones, and flesh of my flesh."
The words which follow have served
as the foundation for the institution
of marriage ever since, "For this rea-
son a man shall leave his father and
his mother, and be joined to his wife;
and they shall become one flesh.
And the man and his wife were both
naked and were not ashamed."
The creation account doesn't
reveal a man looking for a one-night
stand. What Adam was longing for
was a person to share his life. The cul-
tivation of the world was before him,
all the arts, architecture, sea travel, air
travel, space travel, literature, pho-
tography. At the point of his origin,
man was not a beast, and he was not
looking to just have sex. God placed
within him a desire for a companion
to share in this life. Eve was instantly
the woman of his dreams. She is not
described in scripture as a slave or a
sex object. She is described as an inti-
mate companion, a companion cor-
responding to Adam on the deepest
levels. The Biblical language reveals
the idea of an emotional and physical
"clinging together" for life. God didn't
have in mind a temporary life part-
ner, and in the depth of our beings,
we long for the same thing. Our lives,
on the deepest levels, correspond to
the Genesis account and not the evo-
lutionary account. We know we are
too complex to view sex as simply
fun. We know sexis not about the sur-
vival of the fittest. We desire what
Genesis holds out for us. We under-
stand this kind of soul-mate lan-
guage. The woman delights in being


"cherished" by a man (although she is
not permitted to admit such in our
culture). The man longs to have that
one woman who really believes in
him to share in his life (although he is
not encouraged to believe such is
possible in this culture).
Of course the Genesis account
moves quickly to reveal a "fall." We
learn that what we are now, because
of Adam and Eve's choices regarding
God's commands, involves a frac-
tured image of God. We find a war
going on within ourselves and our
appetites often running amok. We
find ourselves becoming easily
addicted to all kinds of things. We
dash others' hopes. We are selfish.
We find that our innermost longings
torment us, as they speak to us that
we are falling short of who we might
be. The best Planned Parenthood
can give us is methods for safe sex.
What God promises us in Christ is
that we can know forgiveness and
something God describes as "new
life" in Him. When we read about
this new life later in the Bible, we
find that it encompasses our most
cherished dreams. We find that the
desire we had for that life partner is
the very thing God affirms. Women
see that to be cherished is God's
design and men see that to have a
wife who believes in them is God's
design.
Abstinence is all about waiting for
God's design to find a happy corre-
spondence in your life. It is about
pursuing the richest, deepest and
most romantic love. It's a true
Cinderella story. Don't let the "safe
sex" advocates encourage you to
stay home from the Ball. They insist
that in your heart, you have no
dreams. They've given up on any
notion that you are a prince or
princess. Take heart God hasn't.

Newer J&J home offered in Venice


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


V enice East is a family-oriented
neighborhood south of Venice
and east of Jacaranda. It is a neigh-
borhood of cul de sacs and spacious
yards.
Located on a pleasant curving street
off another pleasant curving street, is a
newer J&J-built home recently listed for
sale with Re/Max Realtor Gae Stewart.
The 2,118-square-foot house has three
bedrooms and two baths plus a family
room and an in-ground pool.
The master bedroom measures 14 feet
by 23 feet and has an angled wall of slid-
ing glass doors facing the caged pool and
lanai area of the house. The master bath
has his-and-hers vanity sinks and the
master suite features walk-in closets.
Cathedral ceilings extend throughout
the home. There is tile flooring in the
kitchen and baths and Pergo throughout
the rest of the home's living areas, with


carpeting in bedrooms.
The all-white kitchen opens to the spa-
cious family room and also is handy to
the pool and lanai area. There is eating
space in the kitchen as well as a formal
dining room at the front of the house.
Bedrooms two and three are located
on the the family room side of the split-
plan house. That area, which is behind
the family room and also close to the
pool, could easily function as the chil-
dren's suite, an in-law suite or provide
accommodations for live-in help.
An attached two-car garage at the front
of the home frames the entry, which is
covered and includes a small porch-like
area.
Extras that come with the house
include hurricane shutters and outdoor
lighting. There is a county water system,
public sewer and trash collection.
Listed for $224,900, the house is locat-
ed at 261 WillowickWay. It can be seen by
appointment. Call Stewart at (941) 488-
6262.


SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL
All white, including appliances, the kitchen is handy to the caged pool and family room areas
and also offers eat-in space.


The in-ground pool is one of the home's features.


The generously proportioned master suite has room for reading or exercise and, beyond the
vertical blinds shown here, a view of the pool.

Avoid the pitfalls of becoming a lazy


It was one of those
mornings: I over-
slept and found
myself rushing around
the house gathering
gear while I made
breakfast. I burned my
breakfast, made a mess
on the stove and was
promptly reprimanded
by the "boss." But I was
in a hurry and didn't
want to be late meeting
a friend for a day's
fishing, so I ignored the
scolding, grabbed my
stuff and flew out the
door. As I drove to the
meeting spot, I made a
mental inventory of my
gear and was pleased
with myself because I
remembered everything
- sort of.
I grabbed a couple of
fly rods off the rack
because they were
already set up with
leaders and flies,
although they weren't
the ones I really wanted
to use that day. I knew
we were going to be
casting poppers to
small tarpon we had
located up a well-
known creek and the


I EITO'SOIN IO I


rods I brought would be
too light to use effec-
tively. But they were
rigged and ready to fish,
and I was too lazy to set
up the others. So I
struggled that morning
casting bulky poppers
into a headwind. My
casts weren't as long as
they should have been
and I worked much
harder than I would
have if I brought the
proper gear. How much
time did I save? None,
really, because I had all
the time in the world to
set up the rods once we
reached our fishing
spot.
I did entice a few
tarpon to smack my
popping flies, but they
promptly jumped off. I


chalked it up to "small
tarpon are hard to keep
on." But the reality was
that my hook points
were dull, so I couldn't
set the hook into the
fish properly. I know
better; if this were a
charter trip, I would
have sharpened the
hooks as part of my
regular routine. But I
was fishing for fun and
couldn't be bothered
rummaging through my
gear bag for the file.
Then I examined my
leader and found it
frayed abraded by
tarpon mouths and
commented to my
buddy that I should
probably replace it
before I lose a fish. I
also noticed that I had a
couple of casting (wind)
knots in the class
section of the leader.
But I didn't feel like
messing around retying
everything, so I contin-
ued to fish. I didn't land
a fish. I lost every one I
hooked and eventually
broke off my fly. I'd like
to tell you that I didn't
care and that hooking


the fish was enough for
me, but I'd be lying. The
truth is, my laziness
cost me a couple of fish
that day.
Big deal, you might
think; it's just a couple
of fish. But it's a bad
habit to get into and
maybe even an expen-
sive or dangerous one.
Laziness takes on a life
of its own; it starts with
minor inconveniences
and grows until some-
thing drastic occurs.
Gear gets ruined
because you're too tired
(lazy) at the end of a
trip to properly rinse
and clean it. Outboard
motors fail because
flushing them at the
end of a long, hot day
on the water takes too
much effort. Being too
lazy to go the extra
block or so out of the
way to top off your
boat's fuel tank might
cost you a scary time
stranded on the water.
You get the point.
I know it's a stretch to
go from sharpening a
hook to being stranded
at sea, but stuff hap-


pens because we get
too complacent, too
casual about serious
matters, and too
careless to take the
necessary time to do
things properly. Every
time we set out on the
water should be treated
seriously, because there
can be very serious
consequences to the
things we are too lazy to
deal with when they
should be dealt with.
I lost a very large
snook once while
fishing with a fairly well
known fly fisherman.
He poled me along a
shoreline until we
spotted the big snook
on a sandy spot. He
worked hard getting me
into position so I could
cast. I performed
admirably and dropped
the fly where it should
have been and the
snook turned and ate it.
I set the hook, moved
the fish away from
potential snags and
began the battle. Then
my line simply parted
and the fish was gone.

2005 and our little city on
the river was shaking off a
knockout punch from a big
blowhard named "Charley."
Volunteer and various civic
groups had been formed to
help chart the recovery of
Punta Gorda and a large
portion of Charlotte
County. One of the many
"Charley" victims was the
boating community.
Despite all of the pre-
storm precautions, boats,
both large and small, were
tossed and battered.

is holding some type
of bait for them to eat.
It is without a doubt
my favorite time of the
year to fish and if you
can find a school of
these solid gold
beauties, you are in for
a treat. Such was the
case on a recent kayak
trip instigated specifi-
cally to check out an
area that several
anglers told me held at
least one school of
reds. The water has
cooled considerably
and the humidity is a
bit lower than it has
been, and both add up
to an even more
pleasant time on the
water. If the wind will
just behave we should
be in for a terrific next
couple of months of
fishing. And with
schooling reds appear-
ing all over the place,
an angler usually does
not have to travel far
to find some great
fishing action.
On a recent kayak
trip, we discovered a
redfish school no more
than a quarter of mile
from the spot we put
in. In fact, we owe the
redfish school discov-
ery to a passing flats
boat that at first, I was
not too happy about
running by us. When
you are in a kayak it is
so quiet and peaceful
that the nearby sound


I PADLESPOTS


of an outboard motor
will sometime spoil
the moment. To be
fair, the boater was
courteous and stayed
at least a couple of
hundred yards away
from where we were
fishing. The boat
actually did us a favor
because the noise
caused a school of
about 40 or so redfish
to "hump up" about a
100 yards from where I
was fishing. Without
that disturbance, I
may have never seen
the school. I do not
believe that I have
paddled any faster
than I did that morn-
ing in order to get over
to the fish before they
disappeared. Actually,
the school turned a bit
and started heading
directly at me and I got
nervous because the
redfish were moving
fast and I knew I
would most likely only
have one shot at the
school and I did not
want to blow the
opportunity. But luck
was with me and the
Exude dart was picked
up immediately by a
hungry red and the fun
started. By chance,
North Port resident
George Yock was
fishing out of his kayak


and within calling
distance, so I yelled for
him to come over.
Before the school
moved out of range
Yock hooked up as
well. It is always a treat
to sight fish and watch
a good-sized fish crash
a lure or bait. Often,
the blowups are
almost scary-loud and
always entertaining.
A couple of things
about schooling
redfish: They are often
hard to spot. Looking a
lot like a school of
mullet or even a
marauding school of
jacks, it takes time on
the water to identify


them. But once you
see a school of redfish
moving along a flat, it
becomes more obvi-
ous what kind of
school it is. If you are
not sure it is a school
of reds, sometimes you
can intentionally make
a bit of noise and they
will raise or "hump
up." Mullet or jacks do
not behave that way.
So if you see a school
of fish close by and
you are not sure what
they are, making a bit
of noise with your
kayak paddle or if you
are in a flats skiff,
picking your trolling
motor up where the


prop will cavitate
slightly will often give
you a clue. Though, it
is a fine line between
making too much
noise or not enough.
Usually these redfish
schools are moving
and foraging for food.
Unless you have a
quantity of bait to
chum with, you
cannot stop the
school. That is where
the boat folks with
good livewells have an
advantage over the
kayak gang. But there
are livewell systems
available for kayaks if
you want to spend the
money and take the


trouble to install one.
And kayakers, catching
a couple of ladyfish,
cutting them up and
using them to chum
with will often stop a
redfish school in its
tracks, and ditto for
cut-up shrimp. The
schooling phenome-
non won't last long, so
get out there now.
Until next time, tight
lines and keep your
paddle in the water.

There is danger in


being alone in a boat


Over the past
month I noticed
a trend in fatal
boating accidents. In
Michigan, a lone
fisherman was found
floating dead in the
water one day after his
empty boat was found.
Off the Florida Keys, a
solo boater was found
drowned, and his empty
boat was located
nearby. In the Gulf just
off the Naples shoreline,
a solo boater was
reported missing. Again
the empty boat found
adrift and the body
found the next day. In
the Gulf just off from
the Boca Pass, a fortu-
nate solo sail boater was
rescued by air. He was
found clinging to the


mast of his sailboat,
which was aground on
the Johnson Shoal.
Three fatalities and one
near fatality, all in a
month and all where
there was only one
person onboard the
boat.
I have often said that
boaters just do not
realize the dangers
associated with boating.


While many beginners
are totally oblivious to
the dangers, experi-
enced boaters are
sometimes just as bad
due to a casual
approach that comes
from being too comfort-
able and confident. No
matter how well you
think you are equipped
and prepared, there is
always the potential for
the unexpected. The
rapid onset of bad
weather, a mechanical
problem, running out of
fuel, a fire, being
overcome by carbon
monoxide, suffering
from heat stroke,
running aground, falling
overboard without a

Separating the stags from the hinds


We really don't
do a very
good job of
naming animals,
particularly fish. I'm
not just talking about
individual species;
rather we don't delin-
eate male and female
animal names with
much consistency.
The dog and the fox
are close relatives and
the males are called
dogs but the females
have different names.
We call the fairer fox a
vixen and the female
dog a bitch. Neither of
these terms seem
particularly flattering
to women or to
man's best friend,
feminine as she well
may be.
We don't have to go
much further than the
household menagerie
to find flaws in this
naming process. For
as skewed as we are
with dogs, it's worse
with cats.
Male lions make it
simple; we call them
lions and the female of
the species is a lioness.
The same holds for
tigers and tigresses, but
we have no such
female and male
names for leopards and
I don't know what you
call a female bobcat.
All of this can
become quite confus-
ing. We call cattle
bulls and cows, along
with many game
animals. But this
gender name applica-
tion can get hazy.
In Africa most
antelopes are called
bulls and cows. How-
ever, the impala
deviates from this
simple plan. Sheep


[ /ITII.Tr MvIIJ


and goats are called
rams and ewes. But for
some reason, the
impala, unlike other
antelope, also bears
such sheepish titles.
When it comes to the
wild deer of North
America both the elk
and the moose are
called bulls and cows.
These critters are not
much different from
whitetail deer, or the
deer of other lands, but
they bear the gender
names of bovines, a
species they are not
closely related to.
In North America we
call the male deer a
buck and the female a
doe. But in Europe,
rabbits and hares are
also called thusly. A
whitetail buck is closely
related to a bull elk, but
the buck rabbit is a
stretch.
The large wild stags
of Europe and Asia
have gender names of
their own. The male is
a stag and the female is
a hind.
Like cats, not all
animals are fortunate
to imbue such proper
gender names but
birds are ripe with
them. A male duck is a
drake and a female is a
hen. Chickens, and
most wild poultry, go
by rooster and hen.
A female turkey is a


hen and a gobbler, or
tom, is the male. But
we have yet to travel
this road well. The
closest we have come
to designating fish as to
male and female is
their counterpart in
swine and cattle.
For instance, we do
call the male dolphin
(the fish, not Flipper) a
bull and the female a
cow. But this is easy to
do. The bull dolphin is
larger than the cow and
has a different body
shape, so we don't have
to, ahem, check
beneath its skirts to
determine gender.
Other than this
gaudy tropical game-
fish most piscatorial
prizes seem nearly
devoid of the nomen-
clature of gender. But
the tournament
circuits may be about
to change all of that.
Still as gender identi-
fication slowly comes
to fish we will surely
screw that up too. The
bass fishing fraternity
is already making a
good run at that.
It made sense to call
male dolphin bulls but
-in the bass world -
we don't do that. We
borrow from porcine
gender designations
but in an odd manner.
A male pig is a hog
(or a boar) and a
female is a sow, so
that's easy enough. In
the bass world it gets
confusing.






SUNYM
YOU NEED,~~N~~~V~


Largemouth buffs
like to call females,
properly so, sows.
Where bass are con-
cerned, the female is
much larger than the
male, so the title sow
is proper. But bass
fans also call all big
largemouths hogs (or
hawgs), ala the male
pig.
This mix up in
gender identification
just can't be allowed to
continue to the rest of
fishdom. After all, no
one calls a female deer
a buck or a male a doe.
But it gets a bit
harder with other fish
species.
Snook and grouper
both change sexes as


they grow older and
larger. Large snook are
all females and big
grouper are males.
In this case, we
probably need to look
to the bird world for
gender nomenclature.
Among birds of prey,
the female falcon is
one third larger than
the male but that
smaller bird still wears
the pants in the family
and gets a special
designation.
Females of this group
are called falcons and
males are known as
tiercels. Falconers often
prefer the smaller,
quicker, tiercels to fly
after agile game.
The French call the


wedded bliss of a large
woman to a smaller
man a "marriage of
hawks." Small in
stature as the teircel
may be, he still runs
the show.
With apologies to the
ladies, the word sow
seems fine for a big old
tarpon or snook. But I
hope we don't start
calling the small ones
boars.
Still, I can't help but
wonder if the little
guys can remember
birthdays.

Fishing Classic tournament was just OK


Maybe it was the
fact that we
just gotten
back from Maui, or
maybe it was because
we had not practiced
for the Classic tourna-
ment, it's hard to say,
but it was real hard to
get excited about
fishing this tourna-
ment. That does not
mean we did not have
very good results,
though.
A two-day tourna-
ment on Lake Kissim-
mee usually brings my
fishing interest to new
levels. Especially since I
heard that the water
was running from Toho
on down through the
Highway 60 lock on the
south end of the chain.
For some reason,


though, it was hard to
get motivated. I guess
coming back from
Maui and being mar-
ried had my attention
elsewhere for the first
time I can remember
since I have been
tournament fishing.
Nonetheless, Missy and
I headed out for a day
of practice on Friday.
We didn't exactly get
an early start. We made


I TOURNAMENT BASIN' I


sure her youngest got
off to school, and then
loaded up the truck for
our weekend trip. We
hit the water to start
fishing about 9:45 a.m.
Even though I revisited
many of my old spots
from the past where we
caught a lot of bass
when the water was
moving, we had very
little success. As a
matter of fact, we
caught only three fish
- one that would not
have measured the
required length.
After some discus-
sion that evening, we
decided to stick to our
game plan and not
wander off somewhere
in search of fish. We
headed to the Toho
canal to work over a


few spots I knew there.
This proved to be a
very good move early
in the day for us.
On her first two casts,
Missy put two fish in
the boat. Not giants,
but a very good way to
start the day. I man-
aged to get one more,
and then the bite shut
off. I decided we
needed to move up the
canal closer to the lock
to see if anyone was
fishing by the posted
waters. As usual,
someone was there. I
worked back down the
canal to some spots
with grass lines extend-
ing out off the edge of
the canal. My first three
casts with a Carolina
rig were rewarded with
three fish. One had to


go back because it was
too small, but the other
two were keepers.
After watching me
get two more in the
well, Missy decided to
throw across the canal
and let the water move
her bait down the
bank. Two casts later,
she had two more in
the well. Considering
all the fish we were
catching, we were not
getting anything with
any real size. We made
the decision to run
down into the top end
of Hatchineha to see if
we could find some
bigger fish.
After spending an
hour and a half hitting
some very reliable
areas and not catching
a single fish, we made

Injuries are just part of fishing


October 2,2008



A44 Cq44,


Do you sometimes
get a little pain
with your
pleasure? When you
return from your fishing
trips are you sometimes
bruised, battered and a
little bloodied? It seems
that there are few
fishing trips from which
I return unscathed.
Nicks and cuts, bruises
and bumps, usually
minor in nature, are a
part of fishing. I sup-
pose it shouldn't be a
surprise that a pastime
that matches wet-
decked, moving boats
with flopping, slippery
fish, tools with sharp
points and blades and
participants who often
get really excited in
brief moments of rapid-
fire action should result
in a few injuries.
Most of my fishing
injuries are related to
handling and unhook-
ing fish. I've gotten so
many line cuts that the
outsides of my pinky
fingers on both hands
now sport permanent
scarring, but the lines
still cut through. The
teeth, dorsal spines and
gill covers of fish have
sliced, stabbed and
gouged various finger-
tips, usually while I've
been trying to unhook
rowdy, uncooperative
specimens. I began
using unhooking tools
on my offshore fishing
trips some 20 years ago
and immediately found
that my hands suffered
far fewer injuries, but
for some reason I've not
used these simple and
effective tools as
diligently on inshore
trips and it's while
handling fish in the
Harbor that I suffer
most.
Some fish are more


likely to create injury
than are others. Sharks
and barracuda have
fearsome reputations
and while it's true their
teeth are capable of
inflicting serious
wounds, I've so far
managed to avoid them
through hundreds of
encounters with each. A
shark inflicted one of
my longest-lasting
fishing injuries, but it
wasn't as dramatic as a
messy bite. I'd grabbed
a smallish (3-foot)
blacktip behind the
head and was lifting it
onto the gunwale for
unhooking when the
unhappy animal
thrashed at just the
right time to bounce my
right elbow squarely
into the rub rail of my
skiff, resulting in a
painful case of tennis
elbow that took well
over a year to cure.
Nobody offered to buy
the movie rights to that
rather boring story -
not enough blood, I
suppose.
We all know that
stingrays are capable of
causing great bodily
harm or even death, but
so far I've been spared a
stingray barbing
(though I'm probably
now jinxing myself by
mentioning it). Catfish,
however, have gotten in
their licks on my
appendages on plenty
of occasions. Saltwater
catfish venom might
not be quite as toxic as
stingray venom, but
that's little comfort to
the recipient of a good
barbing. My personal
best catfish encounter
came when I flipped a
catfish off a hook while
aiming the fish over-
board, only to have it
land on the gunwale


S: CRCAPPIE


SIZE LIMIT: None
BAG LIMIT: 25 per person per day (aggregate
for both black and white crappie)
AVERAGE SIZE: About one pound.
FLORIDA STATE RECORD: 3 lbs, 13 oz
HABITAT: Freshwater lakes and ponds, also
sluggish river backwaters. Look for dropoffs
and deep-water structure.
FOOD VALUE: Excellent, especially when fried.
FISHING METHODS: Crappie eat mainly small
fish. Using live minnows as bait is very popular.
Crappie will also readily take small artificials,
including jigs, spinners and plugs. No fancy
tackle is required; many thousands of fish are
taken annually using simple cane poles.


and flop at just the right
time to send itself
careening back inboard
against my thigh, where
the dorsal fin sunk to its
base and held while the
fish wiggled vigorously.
My customers were
watching the show, as I
stood motionless for
the few seconds it took
my brain to register
what had happened.
Fortunately, I was able
to grab the fish and rip
it out of my leg while
keeping the foul lan-
guage to myself.
Sometimes the
wounds I've suffered
have been self-inflicted,
and two of my better
attempts at self-mutila-
tion have come on
offshore excursions. On
one trolling trip, a
young angler hooked,
fought and landed a
beautiful amberjack of
approximately 50
pounds. The fish was
gaffed by our mate,
swung aboard, laid out
on deck and bopped on
the skull with a billy
club. Wanting to help
the parents pose their
child with the fish, I left
the helm and ventured
onto the back deck. I
figured I'd reposition
the gaff near the head
of the amberjack so the
youngster could more
easily pick the fish up.
To steady the fish on
the rocking deck, I
placed my left hand on
the side of its head,
then took the gaff in my
right hand and stuck it
squarely into the back
of my left middle finger,
hitting the bone per-
fectly dead center.
There was surprisingly
little pain considering
the amount of blood,
and equally surprising
was that the later X-ray


showed only a small
bone chip.
One of my least
graceful moments came
on another offshore trip
where, for reasons
which now escape me,
I decided that it was
important I leave the
helm station at the
forward end of the
cabin and come run-
ning out onto the back
deck. As I left the cabin,
I took and extra-
vigorous bounding leap
out and managed to sail
high enough in the air
to catch my forehead
squarely on the over-
hanging lip of fly
bridge. The result: My
feet continued at a run
out into the cockpit
while my head stopped
cold, and I fell flat onto
my back onto the
fiberglass deck right in
the middle of six
passengers. There was
silence from all aboard,
probably while the crew

CAPT. RALPH ALLEN









Be careful who you're picking a fight with


My father always
said, "Don't
start a fight you
can't finish." That turns
out to be good advice if
you are chasing after
some of the Gulf's
toughest fish. You know
their names: Spanish
mackerel, king macker-
el, bonito and little
tunny. I had a chance to
battle all these bruisers
last Saturday. I was the
guest of my friend Craig
Bates, accompanied by
his daughter, Alyssa, and
her beau, Eric. It turned
out to be a tendon-
stretching trip that left
us with tales to tell.
Craig motored us out
to some of the well-
known structure / reef
areas that lie within two
miles west of Boca
Grande Pass. We started
out the morning trolling
on rough wind-driven
water. Captain Bates
rigged up two deep-
diving plugs to run at
different levels. Then he
added his personal
favorite a gold and
silver spoon to spark
the interest of any heavy
hitters near the surface.


mn n reLWl .~., I = Mol/~.I.


My first strike (we took
turns) was a little tunny,
sometimes mistakenly
called, bonito (and vice
versa). For their size,
little tunny are high-
energy fighters that
could easily jump a
weight class and win the
title. The source of their
strength is plenty of
oxygen-rich blood. After
a hearty struggle, I
managed to get the little
tunny in the boat. But
clutching him for a quick
photo was like trying to
hold a politician to a
campaign promise.
Slippery! Back in the
water, the tunny sped
away like we were just a
bump in the road.
Now, I believe I also
caught a fish that day
that is commonly


known as a bonito. But I
am not positive about
the identification.
Anyway, despite their
"never give up" fighting
pattern, bonito are not
generally kept as table
fare. I have heard that


their fillets have a bitter the rod, I did battle with combatants that can
metallic flavor. Probably a king mackerel. No easily fool a trolling

relatively soft mouths
and that means blood
spurts are almost
inevitable. Because of
clumsy dehooking of the
boyfriend's fish, I left an
ugly red splatter design
all over Craig's nice
white boat deck, and my
shirt, and everything
else. It's been awhile
since I had to clean
spackled fish blood off
my sunglasses.
The annual fall
migration of kings is just
warming up. If you
haven't tried this type of
fishing before I recom-
mend you hire a local
charter captain for a trip
out. It's an adrenaline
rush you won't soon
forget.
Everybody loves to
latch onto a Spanish
mackerel unless you
forgot to tie on your
steel leader that morn-
ing. Spanish mackerel's
razor sharp dentistry
will cut through mono
in a flash. They are
voracious feeders that
send bait pods into a
frenzied state. If you
spot frothy water and


diving birds Spanish
mackerel are usually the
culprits.
Craig did hook one
heavyweight that day -
a 15-pound crevalle
jack. Those of you who
have done battle with
these warrior fish know
that they are powerful
opponents. Jacks of this
size usually travel in
pairs, and for a brief
interval we had a duel
hook-up on the boat.
Mine, of course, broke
off. Even on the medi-
um-sized tackle we were
using that day the jack
provided a muscle-
flexing challenge for
Craig. Forget your
exercise program at the
gym. A jack a day will
keep your fat away.
I doubt whether our
adventure last Saturday
will go down as one of
the great sea battles of
history, but my mind
will hang onto the
memory for a long time.
So will my body. Where
did I leave those icy hot
patches?

The late Dr. David Phelen,

Commission.
As an advocate for our
citizens involved in boating
and fishing, the PGBA has
taken some innovative
actions, including Boaters
Alert Cards. Emergencies
can and do happen on the
water that requires notifica-
tion of authorities. Not all
boaters have easy access to
those authorities, so the
PGBA developed and
distributed 4x6 inch Boaters
Alert Cards that provide the
organization names and
phone numbers to call in
case of various situations
that happen on the water,
such as boating violations,
suspicious vessels, manatee
injury, damaged or missing
navigation aids, derelict
boats and marine sanitation
violations, and onboard
emergencies. There is even


haunts almost resulted
in hypothermia and
drowning. All on a
shallow body of water
with lots of passing boat
traffic. Trust me boaters,
you do not want to be
alone on your boat. Call
a friend to join you.
Even a boating novice
can provide assistance
in most emergency
situations. Another
good idea is to join a
boating or fishing club
and plan your outings
with other boaters.
If for some reason you
just have to be on the
water alone, I have two
suggestions for you.
First, be sure to leave a


a number to call for a
fishing license. Thousands
of the plastic cards that
should be kept near the
helm have been distributed
since their release in 2007.
They are available, free,
from marinas, marine
businesses, and yacht
clubs.

safety-trained boaters

Forms for a float plan

Without a form, you can
simply write out the
information on your

you fail to return within

marine authorities. The
description of where

PGBA created the first
"Punta Gorda Waterfront
Vision" presentation. It has
been shown extensively
throughout the area.
PGBA monitors and reacts
to new or amended
governmental regulations
that affect boaters.
The latest endeavor of
PGBA is appropriately
labeled "Keep a Clear
Head."This creative moniker
is designed to remind
boaters to use official
pump out facilities, for to
do so not only obeys the
law, but also earns rewards
in the form of discounts at
local marinas and marine
related businesses. Each
time a boater responsibly

always near and seldom

you are alone on a boat,
you are in danger at all
times. There are life
jackets available
designed for comfort
and freedom of move-
ment while being worn.
They are no more bulky
than a pair of sus-
penders or a belt. They
inflate at the simple pull
of a cord, or automati-
cally upon contact with
water. If you are going

should be wearing a life

as our marine industries,
depends on clean water.
PGBA meets once a

boating community. For

smuggling protected species
of conch and lobster from
the Bahamas.
The U.S. Attorney's office
said Tuesday that James
Hanson of Bal Harbor
pleaded guilty to charges
related to the illegal import
of queen conch and spiny
lobster in December 2005.
He also was sentenced
Monday to three years

Hanson also has offered
to donate more than 220
undeveloped acres in the
Florida Keys for preserva-

breeding and nursery
habitat for queen conch
and spiny lobster. Both
species are protected in
many countries because of

spend on this spot, and
that was all. On the first
flip, Missy caught a
small one that couldn't
help us. A few flips later
on a bigger clump of
pads, I hauled one in
over 5 pounds. That was
literally our last cast.
After dropping the bass
in the livewell, I hopped
into the seat to run
back to the weigh-in.


We stood in second
place, with no real
chance of catching the
leaders. We had 15
pounds but trailed first
place by 8 pounds. A
little disappointed, but
when someone gets on
them at Kissimmee,
they simply can't be
caught.
Day two of the
tournament was
nothing like day one.
We were not getting
bites. We hit the mov-
ing water only to catch


two bass all day. With
one hour to go, and a
last-ditch effort in
mind, I swung up on a
grass line and flipped
all the way down it.
Nothing. Not one bass
would bite. I saw
baitfish but no bass. I
had one last idea.
I grabbed a lipless
crankbait and started
casting parallel to the
bank. On the very first
cast, I caught a fish. I
cranked it to the boat
and fired out again


hoping to hit a school.
The second fish came
in the boat. While I dug
the treble hooks from
its mouth, Missy
grabbed her lipless bait
and fired off the back
of the boat. The third
fish from that area was
in the boat. She man-
aged to hook two more,
but lost one. By the
time we were done, we
had six fish and were
headed for the final
weigh-in.
We were hoping to


maintain our second
place position, but
surrendered that and
settled for third. Con-
sidering we had next to
no practice time, we
were very pleased with
the result. We said our
good-byes to the club
members and headed
back to the homestead.
All in all, it was a very
good tournament for
us. The weather was
beautiful, the fishing
was good, and it was
the first tournament


Missy and I fished
together as a married
couple. And we had a
positive result from it.
The fish are biting on
Kissimmee. Take the
time throw some baits
around the moving
water anywhere in the
river system of Kissim-
mee. The action has not
been this good all year.

The correct names of things on sloops


A few columns ago,
we discussed the
catboat rig on
sailboats, the simplest rig
of all: One sail and one
mast. A catboat may or
may not have a boom,
and/or a gaff, and or a
sprit, or maybe two. With
two sprits, she's not likely
to have either a boom or
a gaff; one sprit takes the
place of the boom and
the other takes the place
of the gaff.
A sloop, in these
modern times, also has
just one mast, but has two
sails. In addition to the
mainsail, which flies aft
from the mast, a sloop
has a jib, which flies from
the bow of the boat ahead
of the mast, usually on a
wire called the forestay.
(In days of yore, when
most vessels were square-


rigged in the western
world, a sloop was a small
warship, usually with two
masts and rigged as a brig
or a brigantine, some-
times called a hermaph-
rodite brig. What those
terms mean will not be
on the test.)
Standing rigging is
mostly concerned with
keeping the mast upright
in the boat. It is usually of
stainless steel wire these
days, adjusted with


I SAILING AWAY'


tumbuckles, although
some of the more exotic
racing sloops have
standing rigging of rope
made from Kevlar or
other exotic ultra-low-
stretch plastic material, to
save a little weight aloft.
Standing rigging is
generally made up of
stays. Some smaller
sloops may have strong
enough masts that they
need no standing rigging
at all. When they do need
support, the stays
holding the mast from
side to side are called
shrouds. The forward
stay is called the forestay.
The aft stay is not called
the aftstay. Just to keep
you confused, it's called
the backstay.
If there's just one
backstay, it usually goes
from the top of the mast


to the stern. Often, it will
end somewhere on the
way down and attach to a
bridle, each end fastened
to an outboard corner of
the stem. Boats with gaffs,
or those with booms that
extend beyond the stem,
will often have two or
more running backstays,
which come from high on
the mast down to the side
decks well aft of the mast,
rather than to the stern.
These have to be
adjustable, so that the sail
can be let out to leeward,
the side away from the
wind, and be made taut
on the windward side.
Adjusting these stays
when the boat comes
about or jibes can be a bit
of a scramble.
Running rigging
controls the sails, or the
spars on which the sails


are set. Halyards haul sails
up the mast. Sheets are
not sails, but lines that
pull the sails in or let
them out to the side, to
adjust them to the most
efficient angle to the wind
direction. Then there may
be downhauls, outhauls,
reef lines, Cunninghams,
vangs, and a few other
lines, depending on the
type of rig.
The point needs to be
made that skippers don't
use these arcane terms
just to confuse the
layman, or just to show
off how salty they are.
Less than a week ago, I
sailed with four delightful
ladies in a Sunday race.
Two of them sail together
all the time, and know
what everything is
named. The other two
were brand new to

sailing, and irritation set
in occasionally. "Why do
you have to give things
such fancy names?" one
asked, and was echoed
by the other. The skipper
asked mildly, "What
would you like me to call
them?" After a pause, the
tyros realized that, other
than "that rope there,"
they couldn't suggest any
term that would be more
familiar.
By the way, if a boat
has two or more sails
forward of a single mast,
it's (usually) not a sloop.
It's a cutter.

aturday, an
iceberg will be unveiled in
Sarasota. The occasion is
the opening of the Titanic
exhibit at G.WIZ, the Gulf
Coast Wonder and Imagination
Zone, a hands-on science
museum.
Via photographs, artifacts
and models of two areas of the
ship, including a firstclass
stateroom, visitors will be able
to learn about the construction
of the ill-fated ship and also
about its first and final voyage.
Similar to an exhibit held a
few years ago in St. Petersburg,
this special showing features
actual artifacts brought up
from the ship's watery grave,
963 miles northeast of New
York and 453 miles southeast
of Newfoundland. In St.
Petersburg, the exhibit featured
a wall of steel in ice-cold water
so that visitors could feel what
Titanic passengers were
exposed to in the North
Atlantic when the ship collided
with an iceberg in April 1912.
As this is written I am trying
to figure out how the G.WIZ
folks will keep an iceberg
frozen in a museum in which
the temperature is usually
about 70 to 72 degrees. Each
fall when the Gaylord Palms
Resort in Orlando offers Ice!, its
wonderful show of ice sculp-
tures, the resort maintains a
temperature of 9 degrees in
that space and issues parkas
to visitors.
The Titanic exhibit is being
mounted in conjunction with
RMS Titanic Inc. a wholly
owned subsidiary of Premier
Exhibitions Inc. RMS Titanic
Inc. has the salvage rights to
the ill-fated ship, which sank
in April 1912, after colliding
with an iceberg on its
maiden voyage.
I will be there Friday for the
press preview. Watch for pho-
tos and a more complete story

n these tight
economic
times, I've
been trying to come up with
things to do that don't cost a lot
of cash.
Here are a few ideas:
Take a picnic lunch to
Gilchrist, Laishley or Bayshore
park. Enjoy an afternoon in the
Florida sunshine and the view
of the harbor.
Take the kids to a play-
ground. Go to http://charlotte-
countyfl.com/Parks/

Save gas ... We have some
great neighborhood restaurants
in Port Charlotte. Nancy's Place
and Cafe PJ are two I've
checked out that have good
food, service and prices.
Take a walk or bike ride
around your neighborhood.

COVER STORY

'Steel

Magnolias'

opens

at Venice

Theatre

By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The Venice Theatre opened
its fall season Tuesday
evening, by returning the ulti-
mate Southern chick flick to
the stage "Steel Magnolias."
Picture a small Louisiana
town. The men might gather
in the barbershop, the pool
hall or over at the feed and
grain store, but the women
frequent Truvy's beauty par-
lor. Their taste in clothing and
hair is similar only in that it is
not what would be found in a
trendy New York salon.
Consider Julia Roberts with
curly blonde hair, for that is
how she played her role
in the film.
But the hairstyles are not
what is important to these
women of steel who represent
a variety of ideals, back-
grounds and education, yet
still have the bond of being in
that same small town and
being friends through thick
and thin as well as new and
old. They celebrate weddings;
deal with illnesses, cautiously
welcome a newcomer to their
midst, deal with religious dif-
ferences and the men in and
out of their various lives, and
they do it all with the strength
of steel as well as the charm
and beauty of a sweet magno-
lia blossom. The story is
sometimes funny and at other
times takes a serious bend
that might even bring tears.

Week of September 22

was as close as viewers will

get to a 'fall premiere week'


By DAVID MORRIS
SPECIAL TO THE SUN
TA while FOX's "Prison
/ Break," CW's "Gossip
Girl" and TNT's new
"Raising the Bar" all premiered
on September 1 and Tina Fey's
"30 Rock" won't see its first
new episode until October 30;
the week of September 22 was
as close as viewers got to a
"fall premiere week."
The results, released by
Nielsen Media Research and
supplied by WINK-TV on
Monday, awarded CBS's new
series "The Mentalist," starring


Simon Baker the most
watched program of the week
honors in the local Fort Myers
television market. The only
other new program to barely
crack the top 40 was CBS's
"Worst Week" that enjoys the
enviable "hammock" position
Mondays sandwiched between
"Two and a Half Men" and
"CSI:Miami."
But don't look for FOX's new
series "Do Not Disturb" to join
the list any time soon. The
show was cancelled after three
episodes, making it the first
new show casualty.

Get your hands on art


at the Ringling Museum


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The John and Mable Ringling
Museum of Art is on the
grow again.
This time, the growth is pro-
gram-based as the museum
continues to increase its status
as an educational facility. New
"family-friendly programs"
planned to be offered on a
quarterly basis replace the old
Saturday and Sunday
"Handz-On" program.
Saturdays will continue to
be a good time for families to
visit and to enjoy the museum
together, but with the creation
of a new Family Discovery
Center designed to coordinate
with special exhibitions,
family learning opportunities
will no longer be restricted to
weekends. Activities will be
geared to those 4 and up.
The new concept will be part
of the next special show at the
museum: To Live Forever:
Egyptian Treasures from the
Brooklyn Museum. When that
show opens Oct. 18, the first
Family Discovery Center will
open too, offering family-


friendly programs designed to
complement the Egyptian
show. The exhibit is scheduled
to run through Jan. 11.
The museum's Executive
Director Dr. John Wetenhall
said the goal of the new pro-
gram is to increase the ways in
which visitors of all ages expe-
rience the exhibitions as well
as the museum's own objects
from its collection in order to
"establish the foundation for a
lifelong passion and support
of arts and culture."
Family guides are being
trained to augment visits to
the family centers. They will
be in the centers each day.
Within the centers, the muse-
um will offer interactive activi-
ties, which will be planned to
coordinate with specific
exhibits and could include
games, videos and/or art
materials
Continuing the long tradition
of encouraging families to visit
the museum on Saturdays, the
museum will offer a 10:30 a.m.
story time, an activity cart and
special interactive tours for
families from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30


p.m. Activity cart contents
will likely change from one
exhibition to the other.
Family activities, including
any hands-on art projects with-
in the Family Discovery Center
on Saturdays will be included
in the regular admission price.
Also included with the admis-
sion price is admission to Ca
d'Zan, the former winter home
of John & Mable Ringling, to
Mable's rose garden, the
Museum of the Circus and the
Tibbals Learning Center, which
contains a 3,800-square foot
exhibit featuring the miniature
Howard Bros. Circus, which
replicates what The Greatest
Show on Earth, the Ringling
Bros. and Barnum & Bailey
Circus, would have been like in
the mid-1930s when it was a
traveling tent show, with some
37 tents.
The museum is located at
5401 Bay Shore Drive, Sarasota.
It is open seven days each
week, from 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
Admission is $19 for adults, $16
for seniors and $6 for students.
For information, call the muse-
um at 941-359-5700.

Venice growing as



a jazz destination


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Venice continues to grow as a
jazz destination.
Often, with growth comes
change. That is the situation
with the monthly jazz concerts
planned for Venice.
Organized by the Jazz Club of
Sarasota, the concerts will be
held the first Sunday of the
month at 2 p.m. at the
Crossroads American Grill, 385
U.S. 41 Bypass North in Venice.
Don Riddell and his Hepcats


will be the featured performers
at the next concert, which will
be on Oct. 5.
Admission is $9 per person.
Tickets for club members are
$5 per person.
In November the club will
host its third annual Jazz Club
of Sarasota Cruise, sailing out
of Los Angeles aboard the
Crystal Symphony. There will
be more than 20 major jazz
performers on board, providing
several concerts each day for
jazz fans. Free transportation


from Tampa International
Airport is included in the cost.
Call Golden Anchor Travel at
941-922-4070 for information.
For information about the
jazz club and its schedule of
more than 60 annual concerts
and events in the Venice and
Sarasota areas, call its office at
941-366-1552.
The monthly concerts are
being sponsored by the Gulf
Coast Community Foundation
of Venice and supported by the
Venice Gondolier Sun.


Florida Studio Theatre offers cabaret subscriptions


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Irving Berlin, Peggy Sue and
Sarasota's answer to a popular
TV comedy show make up the
coming season in the
Goldstein Cabaret at Florida
Studio Theatre in Sarasota.
Steppin' Out," featuring a
nostalgic look back at the days
when everyone was singing
and humming Berlin hits,
opens the season Oct. 21.
Some of the songs featured in
that show include "Puttin' On
the Ritz," "Anything You Can
Do," and "God Bless America."
The opener was developed at
FST by its creative team, which
includes Musical Director Jim
Prosser, local author and play-
wright Jack Fournier, Rebecca
Langford and FST's Artistic
Director Richard Hopkins. The
FST run is the show's world
premier.
Second show of the season
on the Goldstein stage favors
the music of the 50s and is
titled for that era's favorite toy,
the hula hoop. "Hula Hoop
Sha-Boop" was created by
Larry Deckel and John Leicht,
with musical arrangements by
John Tanner.


Opening Jan. 6, the show will
feature "Yakety Yak," "The
Twist" and "It's My Party'
among others from that era of
poodle skirts, "The Stroll" and
sock hops. The 50's-themed
show continues through
March 21.
Completing the season is
laughing Matters 2009, which
the theater is billing as a musi-
cal variation of "Saturday Night
Live." That show also was
developed in-house. Its cre-
ative team includes Langford,
Prosser, Chris Friday and
Joseph Matheson who also
wrote "Laughing Matters Too,"
which was a hit of the 2007 FST
season. Langford said the team
took the summer off after that
show but then dove right in to
create its sequel, rolling along
on the momentum generated
by the 2007 production.
"Laughing Matters" plays
through June 6.
Shows play nightly Tuesday
through Sunday with dinner
and late evening shows on
Saturday and a matinee and
evening performance on
Sundays. Times vary according
to the day. Arrive early to enjoy
a light meal, glass of wine or


dessert and coffee before or
during the show. Food and
beverages are available a la
carte at an additional charge.
Season subscriptions to all
three shows are $29-$42 per
person. Single tickets $26-$29.
Single preview tickets are $19
per person.
"It definitely pays to be a sub-
scriber, FST Spokesman Eric
Pugh said. "In the Keating
main stage, season tickets are
$32-$59 per show but a pre-
view subscription is $39 and
regular subscriptions are $59
per person (for the season)."
Shades of a theme park
promotion.
Single tickets may be
purchased online at
www.floridastudiotheatre.org.
Single and subscription tickets
may be purchased by phone to
the box office at 941-366-9000.
The Goldstein Cabaret is
immediately west of the
Keating Mainstage location at
1241 N. Palm Ave., Sarasota.
FST's Gompertz Theatre is one
street away at 1247 First St. For
information about coming
shows in the Keating or
Gompertz theaters, visit the
Web site or call the box office.

'Company' is classic Sondheim


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
When Stephen Sondheim
came on the Broadway scene,
there was a style shift similar
to when Rodgers &
Hammerstein teamed up.
"Company," the 79th season
opener at The Players in
Sarasota, is a good example.
Sondheim's musical themes
are woven into the show, with
multiple reprises and a Greek
Chorus feel as the company of
five married couples sings,
with regularity, "Bobby" to
Robert (Jason Kimble), the
bachelor who is likely to
remain a bachelor. That there
is no "happy ending" in the
classic "boy meets girl, boy
marries girl scenario," also
made the show different from
its predecessors. Working from
a book by George Furth,
Sondheim created the lyrics
and the music for the show
without an ending which
earned six Tony awards (nomi-
nated for 14) in 1971.
Robert is a 30-something
guy with three girlfriends and
little, if any, desire to stroll
down "that" aisle and off into
the sunset. His cadre of older
married friends with whom he
keeps "company" is the show's
premise. One never knows if
they want him to be married
to be as happy as they are or
as miserable as they are. The
storyline is peppered with
funny schticks and the music
is mostly wonderful. Kimble
has a pleasant voice and an
endearing manner.
Katherine Vershynino is
April, the not-so-bright stew-
ardess. She is stunning and so
is her Kaylene McCaw-
designed uniform, including
coat and hat. In contrast is
Marta (Deniz Hakim), sort of a
hippie type who thinks 14th
Street is uptown New York. The
third young lady is Kathy
(EricaWilkes) who is the most
level-headed of Robert's three


girlfriends. Good individually,
the three girls sparkle in their
Andrews Sister-style rendition
of "Have I Got a Girl For You."
The couples who have gath-
ered to celebrate Robert's 35th
birthday include: Sarah (Ellie
Pattison) and Harry (Leslie
Dawley); Susan (Cara Herman)
and Peter (David Walker);
Jenny (Bonnie Scavone) and
David (Richard Russell); Amy
(Stephanie Costello) and Paul
(David Abolafia); and Joanne
(Sandra Musicante) and Larry
(David Coyle). Russell was
trained as an opera singer. He
has a fine voice that adds
much to the show. So does his
grin in the pot scene.
Pattison delivers more than
a few good karate chops and a
whole lot of fun as she always
does when on stage. You can
see her inhaling brownie
fumes and wanting so badly to
lick that plate from the minute
the plate appears on stage.
Also to be noted is the perfor-
mance of Herman who always
sparkles on the stage.
The show-stopping number,


"Getting married Today," is
that because of Costello, who
manages to clearly sing her
lengthy part in that scene
about as fast as humanly pos-
sible, while also cavorting
around the stage and finally
ending in a heap. Brava!
McCaw's costumes help
define the characters who are
costumed in related colors.
They are directed by Jared
Walker. Walker also is respon-
sible for the show's choreogra-
phy, which included several
clever dance routines as well
as the staging for such individ-
ual numbers as Costello's. The
set, created from scaffolding
was designed by Matthew
Nitsch with lighting by Jeffrey
Dillon and musical direction
by Emily Croome who also
directed the show's musicians:
percussionist Devin Neel,
Keyboardist SethWertz, wood-
wind player Teri Booth and
trumpet player Victor
Mongillo.
Performances are evenings
at 8 p.m. Wednesday through
Saturday and at 2 p.m. on

end. Here she hopes to find the tranquility she
so desperately needs to rethink the conflicts
surrounding her-a wayward husband who has
asked to come home, and a teenaged daugh-
ter who resents her every decision. Almost as
soon as Adrienne gets to Rodanthe, a major
storm is forecast and Dr. Paul Flanner
(Richard Gere) arrives. 1 hr. 37 mins.

'Mickey & Minnie's Magical Journey'
PROVIDED BY THE ST. PETE TIMES FORUM
Disney On Ice presents "Mickey & Minnie's Magical Joumey"
which will take audiences on a fun-filled tour to four exciting
destinations filled with favorite Disney friends when it comes to
the St. Pete Times Forum Oct. 2-5, presented locally by
Benjamin Moore. With Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse as
tour guides, guests will visit the enchanting worlds of Disney's
The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Lilo & Stitch and Peter Pan.
The St. Pete Times Forum will be filled with music and magic
in every scene including an enchanting undersea kingdom with
Ariel and Sebastian, a jungle adventure in the African Pride Lands
with Simba and Nala, a Hawaiian luau with Lilo and Stitch and a
trip to jolly old London with Peter Pan and Tinker Bell.
"It's an extraordinary show and a family vacation all rolled
into one incredible night," says Producer Kenneth Feld. "You
really get a sense you are traveling right alongside Mickey,
Minnie and their friends."
Disney On Ice presents Mickey & Minnie's Magical Journey
features an international team of award-winning skaters, excit-
ing choreography and a musical score filled with familiar
Disney hits and rock 'n' roll classics the whole family will enjoy.
The unconventional mix of music inspired Choreographer
Cindy Stuart to incorporate original moves, like the boisterous
pirate line dance. Stuart has also included more classic skating,
like David and Nani's touching surf duet and Prince Eric and
Ariel's tender pas de deux.
"Not only is this show a journey through favorite Disney sto-
ries, it is a journey of emotions," says Director Jerry Bilik. "From
the antics of Sebastian, Simba and Stitch, to the high-flying
adventures of Peter Pan, the audience will experience excite-
ment, humor and friendship."
Each destination has its own mood created by Lighting
Designer Patrick Dierson. The foggy London skyline that can be
seen from the Darling children's window soon changes to the
mysterious forest where Peter Pan and the Lost Boys live in
their tree house. Ariel and Sebastian dive into undersea excur-
sions and Lilo and Stitch cavort surfside surrounded by tropical
sunlight and foliage.
The St. Pete Times Forum is located at 401 Channelside Drive,
Tampa.

ROAD TRIP

Let's Go! Page 19


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
'Tis the season to be scared -
or not.
While local haunted houses
may not yet be up and running,
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay,
Universal Orlando andWalt
DisneyWorld have already
begun to spook their guests.
Busch and Universal cater to
adults, offering the most ghoul-
ish and scary events, while
Mickey and his buddies over at
the Walt DisneyWorld Resort
serves up kinder and gentler
Halloween fare at Mickey's Not-
So-Scary Halloween Party. The
latter is the only theme park
party at which guests are
encouraged to wear costumes
and to trick or treat within the
park. At Universal and Busch, if
you show up in costume, be pre-
pared to change into regular
clothes. If not, you are likely to
be turned away.
The Disney event ends on
Halloween while Universal con-
tinues its scary event through
Nov. 1 and Busch Gardens con-
tinues through Sunday, Nov. 2.

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay
From 7:30 p.m.-1 a.m., each
Thursday and Friday, and from
7:30 p.m.-2 a.m. Saturdays,
through Nov. 1, Busch Gardens
Tampa will host its ninth annual
Howl-O-Scream event in the
Tampa park's Africa area.
Intended for adults, Howl-O-
Scream will have special shows,
scary surprises, strange creatures
running loose and haunted
houses. Busch spokesmen sug-
gest that it might be a good idea
to watch one's back during the
party. A press release from the


park mentioned "bone-chilling
coasters." Some would say the
Busch coasters are that way all
the time.
The best Howl-O-Scream tick-
et deals can be found online at
http://commerce.4adventure.co
m/eStore/scripts/skins/hos/defa
ult.aspx. One such bargain offers
unlimited and evening access to
Busch Gardens for an entire
weekend (Thursday through
Sunday). The general admission
event ticket is good for one night
only. Admission is $36.95 plus tax
for Friday events and $54.95 for
Saturday parties. Busch Passport
holders receive a discount on
Howl-O-Scream admission.
Advance sale deals end at 5 p.m.
the day of the event.
Special packages range from a
three-hour tour with compli-
mentary beverage and head of
the line access for $99.95 to the
ultimate deal: the Embalming
Tour Package for $179.95 plus tax
per person. That deal includes
an eight-hour guided tour for
three or more people, reserved
seating at shows, front of the line
access, preferred parking and
admission to Fright Feast, a bev-
erage, special gift and meeting
with a member of the Howl-O-
Scream creative team. Tour deals
include party admission.

Universal Orlando
In addition to a scary online
experience, Universal Orlando
offers single night tickets and
getaway packages. A typical
package includes lodging at a
Universal partner hotel, admis-
sion, photograph, transportation
and one-night admission to the
event. Either leave the children
at home with the grandparents


or drop them off at that other
Orlando theme park where they
can party with less scary crea-
tures such as mice in formal
attire.
For a sneak peak of the most
nightmarish event in Orlando, if
not the state, visit www.hal-
loweenhorromights.com/orlando.
Consider that the blood and
gore has been flowing at
Universal Orlando for some 17
years. Does that make Universal
an adult now that it is into year
18?
Even the Universal Web site is
a scary place to visit but to buy
tickets in advance, that is the
place to go. Or, if that is too
scary, call 888-HORROR-7 or
gamble that some might be left
at the front gate of the park. If
you want to attend this year, you
need to buy tickets now.
Admission to this year's event
is $69.99 plus tax per person.
Florida residents can save up to
$33 with the UPC code from cer-
tain Coca-Cola products. The
discount applies to Sunday-
Thursday tickets only. Or, pur-
chase a Frequent Fear Pass for
the same price as a one-day tick-
et and return on any of 13 specif-
ic (Sept. 26-27 or Oct. 2, 5, 9, 12,
16, 19, 22, 23, 26, 29 and 30)
nights during the 23-night event.
Special "day-of-event" tickets
admit guests from 4-7 p.m. to
Islands of Adventure for $15 in
advance or $20 that day. This
deal requires purchase of
Halloween Horror Nights ticket.
With an Express Pass (prices
start at $39.99 plus tax) visitors
can bypass regular lines at many
of the Horror Nights attractions
and houses.
Oct. 31 tickets are already sold


out. Weekend dates sell out first
at the Halloween events at
Florida's major theme parks.

Walt DisneyWorld
In new duds made especially
for the holiday, Mickey and
Minnie Mouse will host their
annual Not-So-Scary Halloween
Party, which continues almost
nightly through Oct. 31. Going
formal this year, the handsome
couple will wear purple and
black, accented with an orange
vest for him and an orange sash
for her. His hat is trimmed with a
band of orange to match his vest
and coordinate with her dress.
When choosing your own out-
fit for the party, consider that the
Disney characters love it when
you dress to look like your
favorite character. Pirates and
princesses continue to be the
most popular outfits.
Everyone gets a treat bag and
a map showing the locations
where treats are available. There
also are a parade and fireworks
- two Disney staples. should
you see the Headless Horseman
galloping through the vicinity of
Liberty Square, get yourself to
the side of the road and prepare
for the Boo-TO-You Halloween
Parade which is about to begin.
