Three vie for county commission seat 1


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


The three candidates vying
for Paul Mercier's District 1 seat
on the Sarasota County Com-
mission offer voters a variety of
choices as the Nov. 4 election
draws near.
Carolyn Mason
Carolyn Mason, 57, defeated
fellow Republican Richard Red-

now faces Democrat Jono Miller
and John Mullarkey, an Inde-

Bypass fund

tops city

priority list

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The city ofVenice forwarded a
list of legislative priorities by let-
ter to the Manasota League of
Cities last week for inclusion in
its 2009 list of priorities.
Funding of the U.S. 41 Venice
Bypass improvement project
continues to top the list. In
August council voted to break
the $108 million project into
three segments in hopes it will
have a better chance of securing
state funding. It's been at the top
of the Sarasota/Manatee Metro-
politan Planning Organization's
regional transportation priority
list for a decade.
Segment one of the 3.1-mile
project generated a request from
the Florida Department of
Transportation for $26 million to
secure rights of way and $13.2
million for construction.
Property tax and insurance
reform was No. 2 on the city's
priority list.
The city is requesting legisla-
tion that provides "comprehen-
sive and fair property tax and
insurance reform" while retain-
ing home rule authority of cities
and counties.
Red tide didn't make much of
an appearance this year, but its

economy, tourism and general
quality of life in the region was

Sarasota County will begin charging non-profit organizations for use of its SCAT Plus service


Nonprofits face
transportation fees

BY JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

Some nonprofit agencies in
Sarasota may be facing drastic
changes to their transportation
budget because Sarasota County
Commissioners approved user
fees for Sarasota County Area
Transportation's SCAT Plus bus
service.
The fees are scheduled to go
into effect Jan. 1.


SCAT Plus offers special-
needs transportation on a sub-
scription basis to developmen-
tally disabled individuals and
area nonprofits.
Traditionally SCAT Plus has
charged the user's Med-waiver
fund, provided to mentally dis-
abled individuals, for the service.
But SCAT now plans to charge
the nonprofit agencies a $5
round-trip fee.
SCAT representative Beverly
Kent said in an e-mail that SCAT
Plus service has cost the county
slightly more than $7 million per
year to operate. It's a cost, she


said, the county can no longer
afford.
Initially announced in July,
Kent said, the charge is a change
the county needs to make in the
current economic climate.
"SCAT has provided the pre-
mium subscription service
because we could," she said,
"but with budget reductions and
subsequent lowered funds, the
board can no longer consider
funding nonstandard service."
Kent said the $2.50-per-trip
premium is primarily intended
to encourage nonprofit organi-
zations to develop internal


transportation systems and
remove the burden of cost from
the county.
Other goals are to motivate
agencies to participate in the
Florida Vehicle Procurement
Program and to develop com-
munity partnerships within
Sarasota County.
Stretched thin
The Loveland Center, 157
South Havana Road, a privately
funded school for the mentally
disabled, depends on SCAT Plus
to transport its adult students
between their home and the
campus.
Benny Weaver, senior vice
president of community devel-
opment at Loveland, said the
school has about 100 students
who use the service to get to
class each day. If the new charge
goes into effect as planned,
Weaver said the $2.50 per-trip
charge would be a tremendous
financial burden on the center.
"It will cost approximately
$107,000 per year to continue
using the service," he said, "SCAT
Plus is a special service and has
done a wonderful job, but under
this economy, with this increase,
we're getting run over."
Weaver said the center is still
reeling from recent reductions in
grant money used to cover oper-
ational costs.
"We just had a 20-percent cut
from the county grants and a
7.2-percent cut from Med-waiv-
er funding. Collectively, we lost

Plan board has little work to do


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Planning commissioners in
the city ofVenice have a lot more
time on their hands since the
housing downturn in 2006. Two
of the last four commission
meetings were canceled for lack
of agenda items.
"It's the economy," said Chair
John Osmulski. "Nothing's going
on right now. Nothing's moving."
Osmulski is running for seat No.
2 on the Venice City Council.
The change is staggering. At
the height of the development
bubble in 2005, the city received
91 petitions for everything from
rezoning to site and development
plan approvals, variances and


comprehensive plan amend-
ments.
So far this year the city has
received only 25 applications,
and half of those are site and
development plans for projects
that began a couple of years ago.
Only four rezoning applica-
tions have been received so far
this year, indicating caution by
land owners in an uncertain
economy. In 2005 the number of
rezoning petitions submitted
was 16; in 2006 and 2007 there
were eight each year.
Site and development plans
went from 21 in 2007 to 12 so far
in 2008.
Under review
Is the city's slow-growth


direction having an effect on the
number of petitions submitted?
No, says Osmulski.
"There's nothing in place," he
said, referring to the city's draft
comprehensive plan that's been
under review for over a year.
Technically, petitions submit-
ted even today would be han-
dled under comp plan rules put
in place seven years ago because
the plan hasn't officially been
updated by the city and signed
off on by the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs.
Every seven years the state
requires each local government
agency to update its "comp
plan." The city was nearly ready
to sign off on its updated plan


when three new city council
members were elected in
November. Council has been
rewriting the plan ever since,
and in many areas, reducing
density and height limits.
"We've been out of compli-
ance since May," Osmulski said.
"We were going to be fine" under
the original draft OK'd by the
commission. He says the height
and density reductions council
crafted are an overreaction to
the "height hysteria" of a few
years ago.
Reducing density is some-
thing that typically happens
anyway, he said.
What is more likely, he said, is
developers coming in with pro-
posals for building 20 units per


acre that are eventually negoti-
ated down to somewhere
around four units per acre.
In a reversal of the board's
usual role, Osmulski will preside
over a series of weekly work-
shops beginning Oct. 10 to
review the actions that council
has taken in its revisions to the
comp plan.
Ten scheduled workshops on
the draft comp plan will give
commissioners something more
to do, at least for the next three
months.
Council Member Sue Lang
requested a reduction in the
number of scheduled work-
shops, Osmulski said. But he

$90,000 of funding from

Kent said said SCAT is
working with nonprofit
agencies to develop a plan
for dealing with the costs.
"SCAT is helping agen-
cies seek grant opportuni-
ties to support their efforts
to purchase vehicles
through the Florida Vehicle
Procurement Program," she
said.
The program enables
not-for-profit agencies to
purchase vehicles at 10 per-
cent of cost.
Crunch time
The Community Haven
for Adults and Children with
Disabilities, the area's sec-
ond-largest adult resource
and training facility, with 75
adults who use the SCAT
Plus, said it isn't prepared to
make the choice between
paying for SCAT Plus service


or buying its own vehicles.
Vice President of Pro-
gram Services Ryan Stoyles
said the impact on the
agencies will be enormous.
"We're looking at the
choice of either becoming a
transportation entity or
coming up with the fee," he
said. "This couldn't come at
a worse time."
Stoyles said buying a
vehicle would require a
tremendous amount of
start-up capital and isn't
feasible within such a limit-
ed time frame.
"January isn't that far off,"
he said. "For us to come up
with the grants to pull that
off is a tall order."
And conditions are
equally dire at Loveland,
which Weaver said receives
40 percent of its funding
from nongovernmental
agencies.
"We already have to raise
roughly $600,000 a year to
support operational costs,"

he said.
With the added weight of
purchasing and maintain-
ing a fleet of buses, the fig-
ure could jump substantial-
ly.
Loveland and Commun-
ity Haven representatives
said they want to work with
SCAT to reach a reasonable
solution. They also said they
would like to see SCAT push
back the Jan. 1 date.
SCAT, however, said the
charge is reasonable.
"Implementation of a
premium fare is a reason-
able plan for continuing to
meet a need while balanc-
ing the costs of a publicly
funded level of service that
we can no longer afford, at a
level of service not offered
by other community trans-
portation coordinators,"
Kent said. "Government
cannot be all things to all
people."

OUR VIEW


County going green saves taxpayers' green


As energy costs have increased in
the past year, average Joes and
Janes everywhere have searched
for new ways to cut back.
The same should hold true for gov-
ernments, often accused of mindless
waste of taxpayer money.
Sarasota County, for one, has
addressed the waste question by focus-
ing on conservation. The county took a
tact toward "greening" public buildings
years ago as a matter of policy, and
declining property tax revenues have
made that initiative all the more imper-
ative.
The savings are real.
County Energy Coordinator Gary
Patton yes, Sarasota has an energy
coordinator said two recently com-
pleted projects will save millions of gal-
lons of water and at least $125,000 in
costs per year.
In the first, the main cooling plant
serving county buildings in downtown


Sarasota were converted to reuse water.
That will save 9 million gallons of drink-
ing water and $33,000 per year to run
the air-conditioning that cools the jail,
the courthouse, the Judicial Center, the
Criminal Justice Center and the Terrace
Building.
The 9 million gallons go up into the
sky through evaporation, so there are a
number of reasons to use recycled
water. Besides saving drinking water,
reuse water also costs less to buy.
The other major project is the instal-
lation of some 300 water-free urinals in
county buildings. Patton said that
would save $92,000 a year, perhaps as
much as $117,000.
The urinal-replacement project was
not without problems. When the first
130 urinals were installed six months
ago, there were some complaints about
odor. But, Patton said, some were
remounted and the cleaning process
was refined. In the past few weeks, the


complaints


and presumably the


odors have disappeared.
Overall, the project saves water and
energy costs.
"People don't often equate water
conservation with energy usage, but
there's definitely a link, since water and
sewer operations require a significant
amount of energy," Patton said in a
press release.
Patton's job will no doubt take on
more importance as the county grap-
ples with tighter budgets and rising
energy costs. He noted the county's goal
to cut energy use by 10 percent possi-
bly 20 percent as a "stretch" could be
consumed by Florida Power & Light's
impending rate adjustment.
But there's more savings to aim for.
Patton is pushing to get employees to
turn off the lights and computers, to pull
the plug on cell-phone chargers and
other devices with "phantom loads" that
add up every month.


"The big one is the electric," Patton
said.
Some 28 percent of the energy bill for
offices pays for lighting. Simple com-
mon sense by employees what Patton
called, "occupant actions" can save
15 percent. There's no reason county
employees shouldn't have to take the
same care with energy consumption as
taxpayers do in their own homes.
With 1,075 electric accounts for vari-
ous county buildings, everything from
libraries to lift stations, 36 percent of the
building energy bill goes to air condi-
tioning. Every degree higher on the ther-
mostat saves 1 percent in costs. Patton
wants to go from a common setting of
76 degrees to 78.
"We're constantly doing things to
make sure we're on the right track,
because there's no more money," Patton
said.
In this case, his job seems to be pay-
ing off.


What do you think?


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


In a recent e-mail to
interim city manager
Nancy Woodley, Venice
City Council Member Sue
Lang outlined what she
feels should be the scope of
work for the new airport
consultant. In essence, she
outlined how she would
like to see the airport after
the study.
Ms. Lang has a vision for
the airport that, in short, is
to shrink its use consider-
ably. Her suggestions in-
clude:
Getting accurate data
on takeoffs and landings
(to show that the airport is
not as busy as the previous
study suggested).
Not asking for waivers
from the Federal Aviation
Administration for a layout
plan, but rather containing
the airport within its exist-
ing boundaries by reduc-
ing its classification. (She
would like to reduce the
classification from C-II to
B-II.)
Making other reduc-
tions, including getting rid
of jet, helicopter and com-
mercial training, and jets
themselves for the most
part. She would like to see a
lot of the current activities
of the airport move to the
Charlotte airport. She does
not want Venice to be a
reliever airport for Sara-
sota.
Not redoing runway
4/22, which is in miserable
shape, but repairing it in-
stead. (There have been
two incidents of blown
tires on this runway in the
last year. City council al-
ready has delayed fixing
this, and we can only hope
there is no serious injury
that happens during fur-
ther delays. Sometimes
they talk safety, but do they
mean it?)
Not adding hangars,
tie-downs, a control tower
or instrument-landing sys-
tems.
Having a noise-abate-
ment program but no new
a Part 150 noise study. (A
noise study was recom-
mended by the Airport
Advisory Board and turned
down by council. I can only
think that the reason you
would not want one of
these is it might show there
is not a big noise problem,
which is the whole
grounds for all the com-
plaints about the size of the


airport. I have heard but
not confirmed that the last
study, done 15 years ago,
showed no major noise
outside of the footprint of
the airport.)
Not accepting FAA or
Florida Department of
Transportation grants.
(This, I guess, explains not
reconstructing runway 22
but repairing it.)
Getting the FAA's per-
mission to sell nonaviation
areas of the airport such as
the Holiday Apartments,
the municipal mobile
home park, the golf course
and the circus arena. (The
idea then is to have airport
activities pay to maintain
the airport. Of course,
there have been years
when, with all the extra
revenue, the airport bud-
get has still run a deficit, so
that seems very naive. You
not only have to run it, but
it has to be maintained.)
Doing an actual eco-
nomic impact study from
aviation businesses. (Al-
though the Venice Airport
Business Association has
done one that shows $19
million in direct economic
impact, it wouldn't hurt to
do an independent study.)
Having aviation fuel
sold by the city instead of
the fixed-base operator.
I am curious if Ms.
Lang's ideas coincide with
the feelings of all the resi-
dents of the city, or even a
majority of them. Is this the
feeling of the people in
North Venice? Is it the feel-
ing of the merchants on
Venice Avenue that benefit
from people coming to
Venice? Is it the feeling of
the people in Pinebrook? Is
it the feeling of the busi-
nesses at the airport that
have a payroll in the mil-
lions and contribute many
more millions to the econ-
omy? Is it the feeling of
those all over the island?
Maybe they all don't
have a problem with the
airport the way it is. Is it a
problem for the residents
in East Gate, Bird Bay or
Pinebrook? Is it a problem
for all the 1,100 chamber
members who want a
vibrant economy of which
the airport is an important
piece?
Is it the feeling of the
hundreds of pilots who
have used this airport for
years? I wonder if all of the
businesses at the airport
share her vision.
I and you know differ-
ently.
Is it the best for the
economy ofVenice?
Her views, at least in
part, are a problem with
the FAA, which ultimately
controls the airport and is
against many of these
ideas. Going against the
FAA is only going to bring

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



People still want it on paper


Editor:
I went to Development Services in the South County
building to ask for a list of permit fees and basic require-
ments for roofing jobs. But a woman at the desk, the only
person in the office said, "We don't have handouts."
She was pleasant and tried to answer a few questions,
but I was still confused. She then referred me to a Web
site with a weird address more than 4 inches long in
small type. I did not succeed in accessing it.
By refusing to provide printed information, this office
fails to serve any citizens who (1) don't have computers,
(2) are not online or (3) have trouble using Web sites,
many of which are very complicated.
I also have a periodic condition, visual migraine, that
results in blurred vision and patterns of flashing lights.
Three recent episodes were brought on by viewing com-
puter monitors. Government agencies that only com-
municate by Web sites shut out many people needing
information and can cause medical problems for some.
County commissioners should require all offices to pro-
vide concise handouts on important topics.
Another offender is the postal service, which won't
provide lists of its rates and has an impossibly complex
Web site. Congress should force it to serve the nononline
public with printed communications.
Citizens deserve better communication by public
agencies we fund with taxes. If the "bosses" don't require
that, we can vote them out of office.

Editor:
I'm not proud to say
that one of my grandsons
has spent time in jail, is on
probation and will proba-

for his arrest soon because
he lied to his probation

usually are a warrant and
then more jail time.
What did he do to get
himself into this situation?
He went dumpster diving
on a construction site in


North Port. He didn't take
anything from the site, but
he is definitely guilty of
trespassing.
I believe no one should

Lost landmarks trigger

nostalgic feelings


DEREK DUNN-RANKIN
GUEST COLUMNIST

A recent issue of Florida
Trend Magazine featured
popular attractions that
have disappeared. They
have personal memories.
The old Sunshine Sky-
way Bridge connecting
Bradenton to St. Peters-
burg was on my weekly
route visiting our weekly
papers in Tarpon and New
Port Richey. It was the
shocking tragedy of the
year when, despite taking
a local pilot on board in
1980, a freighter crashed
into the southbound span
and sent cars tumbling
into the Gulf below. Rem-
nants of the old span, the
north and south ends of
the old bridge, have been
converted into popular
fishing piers.
When I was working as
a $37-a-week cub reporter
at the St. Petersburg Times,
the summer rate for a
rooming house, bed and
sink was $10. For 37 cents I
could get a breakfast at
Webb's City.
Doc Webb had built a
giant discount drug store.
A creative promoter, he
started in 1927 selling car-
tons of cigarettes at cost.
He regularly ran two or
three promotional pages in
the St. Pete Times and was
their biggest advertiser.
One of his famous gim-
micks was the day he sold
dollar bills for 95 cents. His
parking lot was so busy
that he erected a tower in
the center of the lot where
a man in a pith helmet and
a megaphone would direct
incoming cars to the next
open space.
You could actually get
the cost of breakfast down
to 29 cents if you would
bring your own teabag and
order a cup of hot water,
which was free with the
pancake, two eggs and a
strip of bacon.
Doc Webb's disap-
peared in 1979, bankrupt
after 54 years of promo-
tional wizardry, a victim of
the deteriorating neigh-
borhood and new compet-
itive forces.
Food, lots of it and
cheap, is engraved in my

early memories. Just out of
college, I returned to my
old stomping grounds on
Miami Beach. I rented a
room over a garage on
Pine Tree Drive. Wolfie's
Delicatessen on Collins
Avenue and Lincoln Road
was the place to creatively
eat your fill.
Lincoln Road was like
my back yard. It was there
as a 10-year-old that I sold
the Saturday Evening
Post, while half a block
from the Lincoln Theater,
my mother managed
a children's dress shop fre-
quented by vacationing
grandmothers. Still, I was-
n't aware that Wolfie's was
also the favorite dining
spot of mobster Meyer
Lansky.
Sitting down at the
counter, you could eat all
the pumpernickel rolls,
kosher dill pickles and
pickled green tomatoes
that you wanted to, no
matter the size of your
order. I'm not sure how
nourishing the tomatoes
were, but the pumpernick-
el rolls filled all the empty
spots.
The old Orange Bowl
has gone as well. On Sat-
urday, the big game would
be Miami High against a
local team, or perhaps a
highly touted high school
from the Pennsylvania
coal fields.
Our Miami Beach Ty-
phoons were their open-
ing opponents in Septem-
ber 1945. I can remember
the locker room with the
names of January's Orange
Bowl players still chalked
on the lockers. We were
proud to lose by only
seven points to the Miami
High champions.


LET 'EM HAVE IT: WHAT PARTS OF THE VENICE MUNICIPAL AIRPORT, IF ANY, SHOULD BE MADE AVAILABLE
FOR DEVELOPMENT? CALL US AT 207-1111.


Cemeteries are very quiet, you know


Closing the lid. Do you crybabies ofVenice ever quit?
You sound like the rest of greedy America wanting every-
thing your way and wanting everybody to move a moun-
tain to please you. You're forever crying about the air-
port, a landmark that has been there since you came
here, probably. You want no noise? Well then, buy into a
gated community, Plantation, Island Walk and all the
others down here. No noise? Hey, one day there'll be
none when they close the lid. You'll be wishing you could
hear some. Stores downtown are closing and your
beaches are unattractive. Work on that.


No wonder. I'm an R.N.
and I live in Venice. Just a
few days ago I went into a
facility to have an X-ray that
was required by my physi-
cian. I noticed in the wait-
ing room that it was so cold.
I looked at the thermostat
and it was 72 degrees. One
of the employees was wear-
ing a sweatshirt and was
huddled over her comput-
er. The place was freezing. I
mentioned it to the recep-
tionist and she said, "Oh, I
hadn't noticed." I then was
handed Medicare papers
and was told to sign them. I
asked how much the proce-
dure was going to be. She
said she didn't know, but to
just sign them. I asked if it
was covered by insurance
and she said, "We really
can't tell. We don't know."
But no one could tell me
how much the procedure
was going to be. I finally
found out. My husband
and I both have gone to
physicians recently and


complained about the side
effects of medications we
were prescribed; and in
both cases, the physician
said, "Oh, you don't really
need to take those anyway."
The point I'm making is, no
wonder everything is so
expensive. No wonder we're
running out of energy
when we're setting our ther-
mostats at 72. No wonder
health-care costs are so
high when we don't even
know the price of services
we're receiving because
don't worry about it,
Medicare pays for it. Or, no
wonder prices are so high
when we're taking medica-
tions we don't really need. I
just think we ought to sit
back and think about what
we're doing, and all the
money that we're wasting
on energy and health care
unnecessarily.
Change the guard. The
House passes the offshore
oil bill, and I think it's a
wonderful bill for the fact


that they're not going to
allow any more drilling in
the Gulf of Mexico. We need
to protect that area for the
livelihood of Florida, for
one thing. For another
thing, they are giving them
300 million more acres of
drilling around the rest of
the United States. The Re-
publicans are coming back
and saying that they are not
given enough land to drill
on. If the Republicans in the
Senate vote no on this bill, I
think it's time to change the
old guard and get some
new guard in there.
Negative numbers. Let
me give you some food for
thought. Since the Repub-
lican convention, negative
ads from the Obama cam-
paign are running at about
85 percent. Negative ads
from McCain campaign are
running about 55 percent.
Please feel free to check my
statistics.
Good luck. Just finished
reading about Athea's; the
new plans look terrific. But
if the Silvias believe that
starting today they're going
to open in January, I don't
know what they're smoking
because in this town it takes
longer than that, even for a
small sandwich store to
open. If it takes a small
sandwich store six months,
two apartments and a din-
ing area is going to take a


year. Our permit depart-
ment is off the wall in the
way it licenses new or ren-
ovated buildings on the
island.
Def jam. I defy anyone
who signs up to get a new
high-definition TV to get
through on the phone. It
takes an hour and a half or
more to get through to ask
a civil question as to how
to operate it. I defy any
layperson to be able to
operate a high-def TV
without instructions.
Commonality. Come
on Gondolier Sun, wake
up! Be a journalistic cata-
lyst for a united commu-
nity, state and country.
Rid your opinion pages of
narrow-minded writers
like Mary Kay Ruppel and
find a competent writer
who is willing to explore
the qualities of both
national candidates. And
most important, to help
us find the commonality
of our beliefs and values
that will allow this mar-
velous and diverse coun-
try to come together to
solve the serious prob-
lems confronting it.
Used to be. I read that
Sarah Palin and her now
husband eloped; then, she
had a baby eight months
later. Like mother, like
daughter. It used to be that
parents were ashamed
when their unmarried girls
got pregnant. Now, we
applaud it?

Indians tune up run game in Golden Gate rout


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice High School senior
running back Dri Archer took his
first carry 66 yards for a score. He
went on shake and bake his way
for 218 rushing yards and two
touchdowns in the Indians' 42-3
road win over Naples Golden
Gate High School.
"Every time I call a play and
that kid gets the ball, we're plan-
ning on him breaking it," Venice
head coach John Peacock said. "If
he doesn't, someone didn't block.
That's what it comes down to."
That was the difference in this
matchup. Archer failed to score a
touchdown against Sarasota
High School and rushed for just
66 yards on 18 carries against
Lakewood Ranch High School a
week later. Against the Titans (0-
5), the 5-foot-7, 150-pounder
had holes to run through.
"I haven't seen the film but
just how the game went, I'm real
happy with our offensive line. I
can just tell they were working
that backside," Peacock said.


Archer wasn't the only one to
benefit from a good game up
front against an overmatched
Class 3A school. Junior quarter-
back Trey Burton finished with
seven carries for 32 yards and a
touchdown. In the passing
game, Burton had all the time he
needed to pick his way to a 7-10
night for 149 yards and three
touchdowns.
"They were putting eight in
the box and I said 'I don't care
how many you put in the box,
we're going to run it,'" Peacock
said. "We could have thrown it
whenever we wanted to but I felt
like we really needed to establish
our run going into these games
with Port Charlotte, Charlotte
and Manatee."
The second string offense
entered the game to start the
fourth quarter. Even behind the
No. 2 offensive line, junior tail-
back Rashad McRae carried the
ball eight times for 54 yards.
"They didn't look like twos.
We ran some different plays with
them and I was happy with
them," Peacock said.


Dri Archer blows past Golden Gate's defense to run in a touchdown.

The VHS defense slamming a Golden Gate receiver in last Friday's game
in Naples. The Indians had a huge 42-3 victory over the Titans.


Archer also caught four pass-
es for 85 yards and two more
touchdowns. That gave him four
scores after two weeks without a
touchdown.
"It feels good," he said. "I for-
got how it feels to get in the end
zone."
Golden Gate's three points
came on a 38-yard field goal by
Jorge Moreno late in the first
quarter. The Titans' leading
rusher was junior running back
Sean Knowles with 28 yards on
15 carries.
Venice's defense held Golden
Gate to 88 yards of total offense
despite four Indians turnovers.
Half of that offensive total came
on one pass play from freshman
quarterback Kenneth Mouton to
senior wideout Tony Mitchell.
The Indians' secondary helped
make up for some of those
offensive turnovers with three


interceptions.
Junior safety Justin Grant,
sophomore linebacker Kye
Rodgers and sophomore corner
Josh Boyle each had an intercep-
tion. Boyle also caught two pass-
es for 58 yards and a touchdown.
"That kid is really becoming a
great football player," Peacock
said of the young Boyle. "He had
a great week two weeks ago and
last week. The kid is a good foot-
ball player."
Venice is now 5-0 for the first
time since 2000, when the
Indians wound up winning the
Class 5A state championship.
That team finished the season
ranked No. 7 in the nation by
USAToday.
Golden Gate hosts North Fort
Myers High School while Venice
hosts District 5A-11 foe Port
Charlotte High School Friday at
7:30 p.m.

GRADING THE INDIANS


Quarterbacks: B
Trey Burton was probably his most
efficient Friday night. He completed 70
percent of his passes. Thirty percent of
his attempts were touchdowns. He aver-
aged 14.9 yards per attempt and 21.3
yards per completion. Like last year
against Golden Gate, though, he put
the ball on the ground three times. It
didn't matter in this one, but he'll need
to hold on to it against Charlotte and
Manatee.

Running backs: A
Dri Archer had the best game of his
career, accounting for 303 yards of total
offense and four touchdowns. He aver-
aged 11.6 yards per touch. The 5-foot-7
speedster benefited from excellent down-
field blocking from fullbacks Jordan
Bailey and Chad Armstrong. Backup tail-


back Rashad McRae showed that there
might be life after Archer, carrying the
ball eight times for 54 yards behind the
second-string O-line.

Receivers: A
Sophomore wideout Josh Boyle had
his breakout game against the Titans,
catching two passes for 58 yards and a
touchdown. Adding Boyle as another
weapon at Burton's disposal only makes
this offense that much more dangerous.

Offensive line: A+
Archer ran untouched much of the
time and Burton had all the time he
needed to pick apart the Golden Gate
secondary. The O-line didn't even have
as much of a size advantage as they're
used to. Golden Gate has three 250-
300-pound defensive linemen and


Archer still had little trouble taking it up
the middle.

Defensive line: A
Speaking of size advantages, this one
was as big or bigger than the Indians are
used to. Golden Gate running back Sean
Knowles had nowhere to run and man-
aged just 1.9 yards per carry. That was a
team high. Brandon Wilkinson had yet
another big game, registering a sack in
the first quarter.

Linebackers: A
Some players on this unit are starting
to emerge from the shadow of senior
Ethan Mix. Sophomore Kye Rodgers
came up with an interception on Golden
Gate's first play. Jordan Bailey recorded
his first sack of the season later in the
game.


Secondary: A+
With some key losses from last year's
team, questions surrounded this unit. John
Peacock said sophomore Josh Boyle and
senior Robert Fordham have answered
those questions. Boyle came up with an
interception and so did safety Justin Grant.
Golden Gate completed only one pass
and it accounted for half their total offense.

Special teams: B-
The punt coverage team needs disci-
pline. Venice ran into or roughed the
punter twice Friday, resulting in free first
downs for Golden Gate. However, Venice
had more yards (44) on just two kick
returns than the Titans had (43) on
seven returns. Also, Javier Aguadelo is
nearly automatic on extra points. He was
a perfect 6-6 even after a holding penalty
backed him up 10 yards on one of them.


Cross country



closes the gap


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High School
girls cross country team fin-
ished third out of 14 teams
at the Lemon Bay
Invitational Saturday at
Lemon Bay High School.
The Lady Indians' top
two runners finished
together at 14th and 15th.
The next four finished with-
in 11 places of each other.
"We're starting to close
that gap a little bit, which is
good," Venice head coach
Brenda Clark said.
Freshman Kelly White
(14th) led Venice for the
third straight week followed
by Rosa Canas (15th).
Cynthia Flynn-Melendez
(21st), Amberose Courville
(24th), Lucy Horton (28th)
and Maggie Gokey (32nd)
rounded out the scoring for
Venice.
Runners at Lemon Bay
had to deal with wet condi-
tions because the on-cam-


pus swimming pool had just
been drained. The result
was slower times, according
to coaches, but official times
were unavailable.
Charlotte High School
finished first and Lakewood
Ranch High School finished
second in the team stand-
ings.
In boys action, the Indians
were without two of their top
five runners. Sophomore
Anthony Hinsman, who was
the first Venice runner to fin-
ish last week at the North
Port Invitational, broke his
arm playing soccer earlier
this week.
"We did the best we
could with the guys that we
had," said boys head coach
Jason Potter. "I'm pretty
happy with the results."
Venice's top five runners
all finished in the top 70.
Next up for both Venice
teams is the Riverview
Invitational Saturday.

Venice Christian School takes down SSAS


FROM VCS BASKETBALL


In the quintessential David vs.
Goliath match up, the Venice
Christian School boys basketball
team upended Sarasota School of
Arts and Sciences 39-37 in a mid-
dle school game that will be talked
about for years.
It was a battle of undefeated
teams in the Gulf Coast League.
SSAS had size on their side, featur-
ing multiple 6-footers. The tallest
Lions player stands 5-foot-9. SSAS
is a charter school whose student
body is ten times the size ofVCS.
The Tigers jumped out to a con-
vincing 12-4 lead in the first quar-
ter. Matching the Tigers point for
point in the second quarter with
key three-point shots coming from
Montrel Jackson and Tanner Traub,
VCS (7-0) went into half time down
20-12. SSAS came out strong in the
third quarter, edging the Lions 9-4
to increase their lead 29 16.
The fourth quarter proved to be
the turning point for VCS.
With the Tigers' best ball han-
dler in foul trouble the Lions
applied intense defensive pressure
to stop the Tigers from scoring.
With the defense in place, Cedric
Jackson took over on offense.
Penetrating to score layups,
pulling up for jump shots and


going 3-3 from the free-throw line
Jackson scored 16 points in the
fourth quarter.
VCS had clawed its way to a
two-point lead with 15 seconds left
in the game before a defensive
miscue gave the Tigers a last sec-
ond bucket to tie the game.
In the three minute overtime
period it was brothers Montrel and
Cedric Jackson coming up with a
bucket each to take a four-point
lead and the win.
Cedric Jackson poured in a total
of 26 points. He and Andrew Gaunt
controlled the boards for VCS.
Tanner Traub scored eight in the
win and Montrel Jackson had 5.
Narrow victories over Incarna-
tion Catholic and St. Charles
Borromeo schools means the Gulf
Coast League will have an exciting
and dramatic playoff picture com-
ing up at the end of October.
The VCS girls team is sporting a
3-4 record. Starting strong with
two quick wins over St. Joseph
Catholic School and Goldie
Feldman Academy, the Lady Lions
hit a snag with Incarnation, SSAS,
St. Charles and St. Martha Catholic
School. Leading scorers for the
girls team are Hannah Houpt and
Faith Price, who scored eight and
six points, respectively, in an over-
time loss to St. Martha.

Catch firefly



moments, embrace



them and live richly


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR


Who doesn't remember catching fireflies? Armed
with a glass jar containing a bit of grass and air holes
punched into the lid, children of every generation are
the great twilight hunters of lightning bugs.
They go off to bed excited with their catch only to
awaken the next morning to find their fireflies are dead.
Barbara Braunstein warns us the same could hap-
pen with the rich, everyday experiences of our lives if
we fail to capture the moments, examine them a bit
and then free them to become a part of the fabric of
our lives.
Braunstein is the author of "Firefly Moments, 101
Stories to Light Up Your Life," a nationally known moti-
vational speaker and the keynote speaker for The
Women's Resource Center of Sarasota County's Fall
Gathering.
"Firefly moments are bright, shiny flashes of light
that come into our life like fireflies which disappear as
quickly as they appear," she said. "And if we don't take
time to pay attention, we might miss out on such
moments forever."
Braunstein admits not all firefly moments are good,
happy ones; some are unpleasant, sad and embarrass-
ing. But she encourages women to embrace those as
well, like one she embraced in high school.
She was a junior and didn't have a date for the prom.
Her friends recruited a popular guy who had just bro-
ken up with his girlfriend to go with her just as friends.
Braunstein describes herself as having three or four
close girlfriends, yet never really being a part of the "in"
crowd. That night when the king, queen and prom
court winners were announced, she was
left alone at the table as all of her
friends went on stage to accept their
honors.
"The first time
you're
rejected,


it throws you," she said. "But the next time, if you've
embraced the first time, you can get through and face
the next one."

Lessons
By embracing a firefly moment with her parents,
Braunstein learned gratitude.
She was a young mother of one son when she and a
friend loaded their kids into the car and headed for a
nearby beach.
"I was thinking what a wonderful mother I was to do
this for my son," she said. "Then I remembered my par-
ents took me to the Bronx Zoo in New York. They had to
take us on four modes of transportation just to get


there
"I


learned gratitude from them, but I'm not sure I


/


learned it until I
became a mother."
Her parents taught her to be thankful.
Her children taught her about love.
"I've been married twice and I loved both my hus-
bands," she said. "But my boys taught me about the
depth of love. The love I feel for my children is so deep
and so profound, it's like they are still inside me."

Taking risks
Braunstein draws from a wide range of experience
for her speeches. She is a former international flight
attendant, supervisor and trainer; she's worked in hos-
pital administration developing projects as well as
managing and supervising several different depart-
ments. She's also a former runway model and competi-
tive tennis player. Today, she is president of Barbara
Braunstein & Associates.
Braunstein began taking risks at an early age, and
she thinks risk taking is one of the things women fail to
do today.
She was an 11-year-old dance student when she
took her first big risk. She was summoned to her
instructor's bedside. Her teacher was ill and told
Braunstein she wanted her to teach all of the classes
that day, including her own. Even though she had been
taking lessons since she was 3, she told the teacher she
was too young, didn't know how to teach and no one
would listen to her. The instructor simply told her she
could do it, rolled over and pulled the covers up to her
ears.
"Walking down the steps from Miss Jill's bedroom to
the garage dance studio, I somehow got the indepen-
dence and confidence to do the job," she said.
Braunstein cautions that she's talking about taking
calculated personal risks.
"I'm not talking about jumping out of planes or even
becoming a CEO," she said. "I'm talking about women
taking mini-risks so their lives will be richer."
A mini-risk might involve wearing a color you like
like even though everyone has told you that you
shouldn't wear it. Another idea she suggests is taking a
class to learn a new skill. Braunstein swears you don't
have to be good at it. She said if it doesn't work out, just
do something else.
"Women are too content with the status quo and

said. "I think women are fabulous,
and I would challenge them to de-
velop confidence and practice tak-

Girlfriends
Friends have provided Braunstein
with many firefly moments and con-
vinced her she can't live without girl-
friends.
"Women just understand wom-

She also believes men were never
meant to be the soulmates of
women.


of a Venice Library monthly discus-
sion group. The emphasis is on non-
judgmental encouragement of each
participant to voice and explain
their beliefs along with occasional
discussion of selected essays. The
concept for the group is based on
the popular NPR segment "This I
Believe" and on the book of the
same title. Meetings are facilitated
by Bonnie Kivlan and scheduled for
the first Monday of each month at 1
p.m. The next meeting is Monday,
Oct. 6.
VPL Film Festival
Jim Orville is back for the 13th

16, "State of the Union" (1948) stars
Spencer Tracy as a businessman
running for president with Kath-
erine Hepburn as his wife and
Angela Lansbury as his mistress.


"The older I get, the more I get
that it's our girlfriends who are our
share-all, tell-all soulmates," she
said. "In fact, I believe the men in our
lives would be the first to say, 'could
you just go talk to your girlfriends
about that?' "
Braunstein talked about a con-
versation she had with a male friend
concerning a short conversation
she'd had with a girlfriend.
"Finally, he asked me how long
the conversation was between me
and my girlfriend," she said.
When he learned it had lasted
three minutes, he told Braunstein

she'd been talking to him for more
than 30 minutes about a three
minute conversation.
Braunstein was stunned by his
response.
"I told him with my girlfriends we
could talk about a three-minute
conversation for two days," she said.
Braunstein said that when she
joins the women at the Fall
Gathering in Venice she will feel like
she is speaking to 300 of her girl-
friends.

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Gas prices are coming
down but still in the strat-
osphere for most people.
La Playa Beach & Golf
Resort is offering a $100
gasoline credit to anyone
visiting its Naples resort
for a stay of at least three
nights. Unless you are dri-
ving a major gas guzzler
that should more than pay
for the round trip from the
Venice area and leave
some left over for some
side trips from the resort
- as if you would want to
leave that island of luxury.
Located just about two
hours south of Venice, on
the same Gulf Coast, is a
piece of paradise that feels
more like a South Seas get-
away in the far-off Pacific
- but without any plane
rides. There are turquoise
waters on one side with a
white sand beach and on
the east, the placid water
ofVanderbilt Bay.
Enjoy waterfront dining
at award-winning Baleen
or dine in your room. For
casual fare, dine poolside.
Nurture your body with
treatments at the resort's
4,500-square-foot Spa-
Terre, run by Noble House

Alaska cruises will be
more popular than ever
next year as the state cele-
brates its 50th anniversary
as one of the United States.
To meet the demand,
Princess Cruise lines has
plans for 130 itineraries,
many of which will include
tours of such sites as
Denali National Park.
Some cruises will combine
stays at wilderness lodges
or rail travel along the glac-
ier-rimmed gulf coast.
Cruises will vary in
length up to a two-week
extended Connoisseur voy-
age and also will include
several sailings through
Alaska's Inside Passage. The
line's Alaska fleet comprises
eight ships: the Coral
Princess, Diamond Prin-
cess, Island Princess and
the Sapphire Princess for
its Gulf of Alaska sailings;
the Golden Princess, Sea
Princess and Star Princess
for the Inside Passage
cruises and the smaller
Pacific Princess will be
reserved for the 14-day
Connoisseur cruises to
smaller and less-visited
ports. The 670-passenger
Pacific Princess departs on
Thursdays from Seattle for
its 14-day cruises.
Also sailing out of Seat-
tle are the larger Golden
Princess and Star Princess,
which offer seven-day
roundtrip cruises with
calls at Ketchikan, Juneau,
Skagway and Victoria. The
Golden Princess departs
on Saturday and its sister
ship on Sunday.
Princess itineraries cov-
er Alaska from the Em-
erald Isle of Kodiak to
north of the Arctic Circle.

The Diamond Princess and several sister ships will make a total of 130 sailings to Alaska in
2009, in celebration of Alaska's 50th anniversary as a state.


Cruise packages in-

land options. All cruise-
tour options include a
minimum of two nights at

Princess owns five wilder-

route from Vancouver to
Whittier should consider
adding on a few days in
Vancouver, to not only see
that city but to journey to
nearby Butchart Gardens,
a day-trip by boat from
downtown Vancouver.
Princess has Saturday and
Monday departures for
that itinerary, utilizing four
ships. The world-famous
Butchart Gardens is on
Vancouver Island, about
12 miles south of Van-
couver by ferry. The one
and only time I was in
Vancouver, I was unable to
visit the gardens because I
would have missed my
afternoon flight. It truly is a
full day adventure.
Vancouver itself also is


worthy of a full-day tour
because of its many
diverse areas from China
Town to Stanley Park with
its magnificent totem poles
overlooking Brockton Point.
Sailing out of San Fran-
cisco, the Sea Princess of-
fers 10-day roundtrip cruis-
es, including stops at Vic-
toria, Juneau and Ketch-
ikan.
Escape Fares begin at
$599 per person double
occupancy for seven-day
cruises and $1,299 for
cruisetours.

Having done 25 or so of
this kind of column, I
probably should come
clean.
Yes, I sometimes come
down to the wire on my
deadline without a com-
pleted column. And yes, I
sometimes have no idea
for one, with that deadline
staring me in the face.
But the truth is, these
things are so much fun to
write. In news stories we
have to be serious and
even-handed; this is a
chance to let my inner
smart aleck out with little
risk of offending anyone
who doesn't deserve a jab.
So:
SNo sign of North Kor-
ean leader during key holi-
day. (He was there, in an
urn on an end table. No,
seriously, I heard he was
absent because he was
engaged in high-level talks
with Generalissimo Fran-
cisco Franco.)
Scientists race to crack
the potato's genetic code.
(Finally, an end to potato
birth defects may be in
sight.)
Gene mutation under-
lies some mad cow dis-
ease: study. (Has anyone
considered that they might
be mad because we like to
eat them?)
Scientists discover
120-million-year-old ant.
(They were able to tell its
age by carbon-dating the
piece of 120-million-year-
old Twinky it had in its
mouth.)
Israeli city uses DNA to
fight dog poop. (These last


few entries give me all the
ammunition I need for
when my kids ask why
they need to study science
in school.)
S2T h-^^


O.J. prosecutor says
evidence will show threats.
(Yeah, we've never heard
that one before.)
Evolution fine but no
apology to Darwin: Vat-
ican. (Come on, you make
everybody else do pen-
ance after confession.)


Jury duty lands N.Y.
man in custody on Ohio
warrant. (Do you ever get
the feeling that human
stupidity is our greatest
weapon in the war against
crime?)
Senate reaches agree-
ment on tax relief package.
("OK, then we're unani-
mous on section one, that
senators don't have to pay
taxes. Anything else?)
Elizabeth Edwards
discouraged by health-
care focus. (If that's her
biggest worry, she really
hasn't been paying atten-
tion.)
Medvedev gives assur-
ances to Russian banks.
(Good move. Now can he
give some to ours?)

Need relief on your prescription drug costs?


FROM NAPSA


Medicare is paying 75 percent
or more of prescription drug
costs for people with limited
incomes and resources all over
the country.
All they did was apply.
People with limited income
and resources may have a hard
time paying for their medicines,
but help is available. And if you
think you won't qualify, think
again.
One woman with Medicare


was struggling to pay for her pre-
scriptions even with a drug plan
and her $800 Social Security
benefit. Monica, a counselor at
the local State Health Insurance
Information Program (SHIP) in
Louisiana, talked to her about
how to apply. Once she heard
that the value of her house, as
long as she lived in it, would not
be used to determine if she was
eligible, she applied and quali-
fied. She was very grateful.
If you qualify, it can help pay
your drug costs, such as month-


ly premiums, annual deduct-
ibles and prescription copay-
ments.
Many people qualify and they
don't even know it.
Apply now it's the only way
to see if Medicare will pay 75
percent or more of your pre-
scription drug costs. Apply on-
line at www.socialsecurity.gov,
call Social Security at (800) 772-
1213 (TTY (800) 325-0778) or go
to the nearest Social Security
office for assistance. All informa-
tion provided in the application


is confidential.
Individuals who make less
than $15,600 and married cou-

Volunteers take pride in Oscar Scherer State Park


CINDY GNEGY
COLUMNIST


Multiple activities were
offered on a recent Saturday at
Oscar Scherer State Park.
The Suncoast Blood Mobile
was on hand, the continuing
fish printing program, a dedica-
tion of 16 acres to the park and
National Public Lands Day were
all on the agenda.
There was free admission to
the park to celebrate National
Public Lands Day, an annual
day of caring for public land.
Volunteers went to the park to
remove invasive plants and


prepare areas for prescribed
burns. Volunteers also widened
the clearing and repaired fenc-
ing between the park and
Willowbend, a neighboring
community.
With the loss of funding
through budget cuts, volun-
teers are needed more than
ever and greatly appreciated.
"Without these volunteers,
the park would be in trouble,"
said Don Congdon, park ranger
at Oscar Scherer.
Longtime volunteers Fred
Toms and Jim Breidster were
helping Congdon repair barbed-
wire fencing.
"I was retired and wanted
something to do, and I enjoy the
parks so much," Toms said.
"Fred Toms is a great volun-
teer," Breidster said. "He volun-
teers every day for something."
Breidster said one of the rea-
sons he bought a home in
Willowbend was so he could be
involved with the park. He and
others have since formed a
group of volunteers, which they
nicknamed the old curmud-
geons.


But their appreciation and
enjoyment of one another isn't
all park related.
"We get together several
times a year and talk about any-
thing other than park business,"
Breidster said. "It's great fun."
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton introduced
Lee Wetherington at the dedi-
cation of the 16-plus acres
donated by the Lee Wethering-
ton Cos. to Oscar Scherer State
Park. Thaxton praised Wethering-
ton for his many leadership
roles within the community, the
sound environmental practices
that the Wetherington Cos. is
committed to and also the
companies' commitment to
Oscar Scherer State Park.
"We worked hard to be good
neighbors with the park and
they were good neighbors,"
Wetherington said.
Along with donating $500
from each home sold in Wil-
lowbend to the Friends of Oscar
Scherer, the Wetherington Cos.
decided to sponsor the scrub
jay run.
"It's become an annual event


and we now have about 400
runners that come out and
enjoy the park the way we enjoy
it," he said.
Thaxton also was recognized
and surprised with an award for
his 10,000 hours of volunteer
work in area parks.
Try It Out Day
The Sarasota Scullers Youth
Rowing team held a Try It Out
Day recently. The one morning
of free rowing instructions was
held to promote and recruit
more youth to participate in the
sport.
Don Guy and his family
moved to Florida five years ago,
and his daughter has gone on to
college with a rowing scholar-
ship and his son is in his fourth
year of rowing.
"It's the best thing we've
found for after-school pro-
grams," Guy said.
He praised the leadership
and teamwork skills the youth
learn in the program as well as
the friendships they develop.
"They form lifelong friends,"
he said.


he Land Days celebration for his donation
SPark.


Warren and Alice Cook said they
enjoyed their first camping trip to
Oscar Scherer State Park and were
pleased to see a bald eagle over Lake
Osprey.


Katie Fisher, left, and Samantha and Ashley Howard, along
with their mothers, spent a weekend of camping at Oscar
Scherer State Park.


Jim Breidster, left, and Fred Toms help Don Congdon, a
ranger at Oscar Scherer State Park, string barbed wire
between the park and the Willowbend community.


Employees of Tropex and Greenery Unlimited visited Oscar
Scherer State Park to participate in a company-sponsored fitness
competition for days off.


John Roche, park
manager of Oscar
Scherer State Park,
Laurel Schiller, with
Friends of Oscar
Scherer, Valinda

of park operations,
Lee Wetherington
and Jon Thaxton,

Commissioner, cut
the ribbon during the
donation celebration
of 16 acres from the
Wetherington Cos.

What a difference a year can make


October is Breast
Cancer Awareness
Month. I could not be
more aware.
Last year, my mother-in-
law was talking with a friend
who had been diagnosed
with breast cancer and it
reminded her to schedule a
mammogram.
They found a lump.
It seemed like everything
was moving so slow. I can't
remember exactly how much
time elapsed between the
mammogram and the confir-
mation that it was breast
cancer. I do remember sitting
outside at our picnic table
when the doctor called to
give her the results.
The road ahead was diffi-
cult. Not one to complain or
talk about the "fairness" of
life, my mother-in-law forged
ahead. The most she'd say


Jennifer
Wadsworth
Feeling Fit Editor


about her
treatment was
that she was
tired of being
tired and feeling lousy.
She doesn't like a lot of
attention and she is a private
person, so she probably
won't be too happy that I'm
writing about her but I
think she's amazing.
I learned a lot about family
and the importance of hav-
ing them at doctor's appoint-
ments with you. It is a fright-
ening situation to be in and
when doctors start talking
about treatments and
options, it can make your
head spin. If you have some-
one with you who can take


notes and ask questions, it
can help tremendously. It
also helps you to remember
what the doctor said after
your appointment.
I learned about patient
responsibility. When you're
sick, you need to accept help
from others. It's important to
keep your doctor informed of
any changes you notice in
your condition.
I learned your doctor is
only part of the team the
patient shouldn't just sit on
the bench. They should get
in the game and be involved.
If something doesn't feel
right, make sure you are
heard.
As a result from her
chemotherapy treatment, my
mother-in-law developed
peripheral neuropathy.
According to the Mayo
Clinic Web site, "Peripheral


neuropathy, in its most com-
mon form, causes pain and
numbness in your hands and
feet. The pain typically is
described as tingling or
burning, while the loss of
sensation often is compared
to the feeling of wearing a
thin stocking or glove."
It was very serious, and at
one point we didn't know if
she was going to make it. If
she did pull through, we
weren't sure what her life
would be like. Would she be
able walk again? Would she
be able to live alone any
longer?
Her recovery has amazed
me. She has worked hard to
get her independence back
and it almost seems impossi-
ble that any of it really hap-
pened.
Except that I know it did. I
am very aware.

back of the class-
Sroom, Buchy fre-
S4 quently struggled to
S..see the writing on
the chalkboard. "I didn't say anything, but I couldn't un-
derstand why the teacher wrote so lightly," she explains.
"It was like she wasn't using any pressure on the chalk at
all. I didn't know how the kids could read it."

Then, one day, Buchy got her answer. At a routine eye exam
with Joseph Spadafora, D.O., Eye Surgeon at Community
Eye Center, she was diagnosed with cataracts. "I had been
having difficulty seeing at nighttime, too, so it made sense.
Still, I was in my 60's. I thought I was too young to get
cataracts. It really burst my bubble!" she says.

A short time later, Dr. Spadafora performed the cataract
procedure, removing her eyes' cloudy natural lenses and
replacing them with monofocal lenses. The results moved
her straight to the head of the class. "The first day I went
back into the classroom, I could not believe the differ-
ence. The teacher had been writing just fine after all! The
white writing on the vivid green chalkboard could not
have been clearer," she explains. "It was like I was seeing
through wax paper before and now it was lifted."


Dr. Spadafora says it's not un-
usual for patients to ignore or
rationalize subtle and gradu-
al vision changes. "People in
their 50's and 60's today are
often very active. They feel
young and they still think
they are the same people as
they were when they were
younger," he explains. "It's common to explain away
those differences or ignore them altogether. Because your
vision is so important to your quality of life, it is vital to
see your eye doctor regularly and tell him of any changes
you're experiencing."

Seven years after her cataract procedure and now retired
from the classroom, Buchy, 74, says she still gives her vi-
sion an A+. "I see as well today as I did the day I had sur-
gery. I only wear glasses for reading. My great vision really
helps me to enjoy life."

An important question, an important group of women


Dear Dr. Joan: I have
had breast cancer in
the past. Now, since I
don't have any close women
friends, my doctor wants me
to go to a support group. I
don't see the necessity. What
do you think?

As I often do, I went to a
community resource to help
me with a question I wasn't
sure how to answer. That
source was Jill Brown, one of
the charter members of
Celebrate Life, a ladies cancer
support group.
When I asked why women
may not want to go to a sup-
port group, Jill answered in
her soft British accent, "They
probably think we sit around
and cry ninety percent of
the time we laugh!" Then, she
became serious and offered,
"It might be cultural."
Jill told a story of working in
another country with a
Hispanic population. When
she recommended a support
group for one woman, her
family became shocked and
indignant. They reminded her
that, "Her family is her sup-
port."
Certainly, our families are
in our support system. Yet,
within the family, we are so
used to accommodating and
adjusting or even avoiding,
we can often miss the signifi-
cance of what is happening.
Sometimes, someone from
outside the family can see
with fresh eyes and respond
more easily.
In his book, "Love Medicine
and Miracle," Dr. Bernie
Siegel talks about how the


images we
carry in our
minds can
help us or
hinder us. Jill
mentioned
f that carrying
an image of
DR. JOAN enjoying life
ASHKIN, EdD, enjoying life
LCSW, RN has helped in
her life. She
went on to
say that while a mammogram
is important, it is often not
sufficient to make the diagno-
sis. This is why she encour-
ages the monthly self-exami-
nation. She also recommends
having a professional exami-
nation. When an early diag-
nosis is made by any of these
three methods, there is a 98
percent recovery rate.
When the diagnosis is
made, anxiety and depression
often quickly follow. In "Cure"
magazine, a quote from the
Institute of Medicine found
that younger women are
"most distress as well as those
with a history of depression,
physical health issues, or
inadequate social support."
Groups where women can
talk about their feelings are
important. They learn that to
cry and be anxious is normal
- not only when the diagno-
sis is first made, but with each
test, and follow-up meeting
with the doctor. The women
find that others can often
help us remember what valu-
able people we are when we
forget. We forget when we're
overwhelmed and alone.


From a group of four in the
the year 2000, Celebrate Life
has grown to 30-40 women
attending the monthly meet-
ings held at the Punta Gorda
Civic Center. Women with all
forms of cancer are welcome.
Speakers discuss different
treatments and the emotional
impact, as well as body image
and changes in relationships.
There are no memberships or
fees, and they've just begun


going to lunch after meetings
which encourages informal
sharing.
Jill has noted some changes
in herself as a result of the
experience in the group. She
is proud to say she has
stopped putting things off.
Also she says, "Flowers are
prettier, the sun is brighter,
the sky bluer."
Dr Joan Ashkin, EdD, LCSW,
RN, is a Certified Sexologist


specializing in anxiety, depres-
sion, sexual concerns, elder
issues and family conflict reso-
lution. She is part of a group
practice at Life Transitions,
3505 Depew Circle, Port
Charlotte and can be reached
at 941-627-2100. Send your
questions to: Ask Dr Joan, c/o

ImprovingYbur Outlook On Ie


November 2, 2007
The diagnosis (continuted)

Dr. Steve said he did not
believe that surgery would
be possible until the tumor
was smaller. The tumor is
in my right upper lung pos-
terior adjacent to the medi-
astinum. Surgery followed
by chemotherapy would be
the best option for long-
term survival which in
the world of cancer is five
years but unfortunately
surgery is not an option for
the majority of lung cancer
patients. It is the reason
that lung cancer mortality
is 85 percent within five
years.
A tumor in the lung can
not be felt because there
are no nerve endings in the
lungs. Lung cancer will not
produce symptoms (such
as a cough) until it is well
developed. Stage I and II
lung cancer patients are
often treated with surgery.
For Stage III and IV, surgery
is usually more problemat-
ic.
Dr. Steve said he was not
a surgeon, but he thought
surgery would be out of the
question until we "shrink"
the tumor with chemo. He
immediately arranged for
me to meet with Dr. Lary
Robinson at Moffitt Cancer
Center, in Tampa. Dr. Steve
said Dr. Robinson was one
of the premier thoracic sur-
geons in the country for
lung cancer patients. If Dr.
Robinson would not
remove the tumor by
surgery, no one would. We
needed to know whether or
not the tumor could be
removed with surgery in
order to make a decision on
the course of treatment.


I have been diagnosed and am being treated for
Stage IIIA locally advanced Adenocarcenoma
(Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer). This column is a
weekly diary that tracks my life as it was one
year ago. My purpose in writing is to give can-
cer patients hope and understanding about
what happens to your life after getting a cancer
diagnosis. This is for all of you being treated for
Thomas E. Cappiello cancer or caring for a loved one.


We met with Dr.
Robinson on October 15.
His view was, not only was I
not a candidate for surgery,
I would not be a candidate
for surgery anytime in the
future, either. He pointed
out that the tumor was so
enwrapped with other areas
of the central chest, that no
surgeon would be willing to
do surgery now, or in the
future.
If you are going to treat
cancer with surgery, you
have to get it all or there is
no point in doing the
surgery in the first place.
Unfortunately, my tumor
was too involved with the
central chest to ever be
able to get it all.
Dr. Robinson pointed out
that the tumor was imping-
ing on the superior vena
cava, a major vein that
returns blood from the
head. If the tumor were not
immediately dealt with,
there was a chance that I
could have a stroke or have
some other major compli-
cation and cancer would be
the least of my problems.
Dr. Robinson believed
that the best course of
treatment for me would be
to immediately start com-
bined chemotherapy and
radiation. Radiation, I was


told, is not something you
want to do if you are going
to have surgery, because
radiation tends to result in
scar tissue forming and
"blurs" the lines between
the tumor and good tissues
and makes "getting it all"
more difficult. Also, tissue
that is radiated does not
heal as well and that makes
future surgery more diffi-
cult.
Radiation, on the other
hand, tends to be more
effective when combined
with chemo.
I had my first chemo
treatment on October 18,
with a plan to follow-up
with radiation the following
week. Dr. Steve set me up
with a radiation oncologist
(herein named Dr. Dave)
who I had golfed with on a
number of occasions. I am
now undergoing a regiment
of chemo once a week and
radiation every day. The
course of treatment will
continue for 7 weeks of
chemo and 35 days (5 days
a week) of radiation. The
chemo is supposed to sen-
sitize the tumor; the radia-
tion will do the heavy lift-
ing.

Doctor offers continuity of care


By JENNIFER WADSWORTH
FEELING Frr EDITOR
The term "during office
hours" doesn't really mean
much to Dr. Joe Butler. He
can often be found working
in his Port Charlotte office
into the evening hours, mak-
ing sure he gets test results
to anxious patients as quick-
ly as possible.
There is a chain of events
that is typically followed. A
woman makes an appoint-
ment for a mammogram. If
necessary, she makes anoth-
er appointment for a biopsy,
then another to have it read
and hear the results. It can
take up to two months of
worrying and waiting.
"My goal for years -
decades has been to find a
better way," Butler explained.
"I have cut six weeks down to
48 hours."
Butler, a member of the
American Society of Breast
Surgeons, is a general sur-
geon who specializes in min-
imally invasive diagnosis and
treatment of breast diseases.
He has been in Charlotte
County since 1982, and he
has seen a lot of technologi-
cal developments in the past
five years.
He is able to perform a
biopsy in his office and get
you the results in a minimal


amount of time. If there is a
need for a patient to make
an appointment with anoth-
er doctor, don't be surprised
to see Dr. Butler there, too.
He feels it is important to
have continuity of care.
"I feel in my heart," Butler
said, "I treat my patients like
I want my family to be treat-
ed."
He believes it is important
to get the word out about the
advancements in proce-
dures. Women often worry
about the mutilation of the
breast, but Butler said if
women can get in sooner,
testing and treatment can be
minimally invasive and save
the breast.
That is the goal, get it early.
The way to do that is to do
self examination, have yearly
mammograms and of course
have a healthy lifestyle eat
right and exercise.
Butler explained that fami-
ly history is important, but it
isn't the only factor. "The
older you get, the greater the
risk," Butler said.
He will always find a way
to care for a patient.
"Whether it's pain, reassur-
ance or spiritually, there
wasn't ever a situation where
I couldn't help in some way,"
he said. "I can offer someone
who is suffering comfort."

American Cancer Society guidelines for
the early detection of breast cancer


Yearly mammograms
are recommended starting
at age 40 and continuing
for as long as a woman is in
good health.
Clinical breast exam
(CBE) should be part of a
periodic health exam,
about every 3 years for
women in their 20s and 30s
and every year for women
40 and over.


Women should know
how their breasts normally
feel and report any breast
change promptly to their
health care providers. Breast
self-exam (BSE) is an option
for women starting in their
20s.
For more information
about breast cancer go to
the American Cancer Society
Web site www.cancer.org.

that my depression is "normal"
and that I should learn to cope
better with the tension just like
"everyone else." What's your opin-
ion?
Lisa, North Port

Dear Lisa,
In my opinion, it is a tragedy
that someone suffering the pain
of depression doesn't get treat-
ment or is discouraged from get-
ting help. This includes problems
that are hereditary, a chemical
depression or depressions caused
by "real" problems like cata-
strophic illness, deaths, physical
and/or emotional abuse. It is a
very common belief that being
depressed after a diagnosis of
cancer is "normal."
Therefore, nothing much can
be done since it is a "normal" life
occurrence and you have to learn
to cope with it, just like you have
to deal with everyday life. This, of
course, is very far from the truth.
There are certainly many issues
which arise when we are face to
face with a disease that may kill
us. Despite having hope that
treatment will place the cancer in
remission, we also have to face
our vulnerability. When we see
our vulnerability, we then have to
face the prospect of dying. With a
cancer diagnosis, these worries
intrude into our lives a lot sooner
then they would as we age.
What's happening is you have
lost that 'security' of living. We all
have this sense or illusion -
that if we just do the right thing
(whatever that is), life will be pre-
dictable and routine and that this
will go on for us without too
many surprises. When cancer
strikes, we lose that routine, that
predictability and the illusion that
we have much control over our
lives. We are left with our own vul-
nerability and the reality that we
are not masters of the universe.
This can be depressing indeed.
The occurrence of depression
here is especially true for people
who had been depressed in the
past, and may or may not have
had treatment like counseling or
medication. Those with a past
history of depression are more


likely to
become
depressed when
a stressor like a
cancer diagno-
sis arrives. They
should definite-
ly talk with their
DR. STAN doctor or their
KAPUCHINSKI counselor or
psychiatrist, if
they had been
in treatment.
If you are finding your depres-
sion is interfering with your daily
functioning, you should definitely
seek out help. When a person
finds that a depression is interfer-
ing with daily functioning and
it is not due entirely to chemo or
radiation therapy- I believe a
trial of an antidepressant is in
order.
Even though all doctors can
prescribe antidepressants, this is
one situation where a psychiatrist
should be involved since they are
the experts in using these med-
ications.
Oftentimes, counseling can be
a blessing. You are able to talk
with someone about your fears,
your anger, and your inner
thoughts without worry about
being judged.
It is very important for you to
have someone supportive of you
through this. Someone who can
go to appointments with you and
talk with your doctors when you
are there. It is very common, for
example, for a person to leave
their first appointment after the
cancer diagnosis and not remem-
ber anything, despite receiving
detailed information.
Lisa, it can be very difficult to
be assertive with your cancer
doctor if he is reluctant to recom-
mend a psychiatrist for treat-
ment. After all, this person really
does have your life in his hands,
and you feel like you do not want
to get on his bad list. However,
you need to put all of your
strength into dealing with your ill-
ness and not divide it up in fight-
ing a debilitating depression as
well.

Helping our community bridge the gap between
smart nutrition and modern medicine
Why fish oil?


In 1976, a groundbreaking
study asked why Greenlandic
Eskimos had such a low inci-
dence of heart disease. The
answer is found in the every-
day Eskimo diet, which is rich
in fish, a common source of
omega-3 fatty acids. An explo-
sion of research confirming
the role of omega-3 fats in
preventing heart disease fol-
lowed. Omega-3 has been
proven to lower triglycerides,


lower LDL-C (bad choles-
terol), prevent blood clots,
prevent dangerous heart
rhythms, prevent inflamma-
tion, and prevent hardening
of the arteries. These fish oils
have kept the Eskimos free
from modern diseases like
heart disease. Why don't you
give it a try by adding cold-
water fish to your diet or sup-
plementing with fish oil cap-
sules?


This product is regularly
tested for potency and
purity by an independent,
FDA registered laboratory
and found to be free of
detectable levels of arsenic,


mercury,


lead, PCB's,


dioxins, cadmium, strontium
and other contaminants.

For us, providing the highest quality

patient care is not lust a catch phrase.


It is a much more personal mission.


What makes Charlotte Regional Medical Center
employees different, what elevates them
from the rest?
It is the immaterial force and
individual knowledge within each
employee that when captured
and combined, provides the
human element of healthcare
that is so often missing.
Judging by the numerous
national awards, certificates
and recognition the hospital
continues to earn, it is a
powerful equation.
And now there is a new reason to
celebrate yet another achievement.


Following an extensive on-site review, the Gold Seal of
ApprovalTM from The Joint Commission for
Primary Stroke Centers was received
once again, renewing the
hospital's distinction as a
Primary Stroke Center.
This designation recognizes
the outstanding patient care
provided collaboratively by
the emergency medical
responders with hospital
staff and physicians. We are
proud to recognize these
people,who prove every day
that it takes something more than
just performing the minimal
requirements of a job to make a
real difference.
