Two single mothers
sacrifice, sweat and save
for their Habitat homes.

BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Jennifer Blakorby and Jessica
Richardson met while attending
Habitat for Humanity home-
owner classes. During the six
classes, they discovered that
they had something in com-
mon: three sons and dreams of
owning a home.
They became friends. Soon
they will become neighbors.
Blackorby has qualified for
the Habitat home on Pelican
Road known as the Gondolier
Sun House.
Richardson has qualified for
the Faith House next door to
Blackorby's.
"I'm excited that she is going
to be my neighbor," Richardson
said.
"We've become friends,"
Blackorby said, "and we're work-
ing toward a lifetime friendship."
Blackorby thinks it will be
great having someone to rely on
living next door.
"We can struggle together,"
she said. "It's better than strug-
gling alone."
Becoming a homeowner
The two women have been
toiling together to meet the de-
mands of becoming Habitat
homeowners.
For most of us, buying a
home requires searching for just
the right house and then sitting
with bankers or mortgage bro-
kers in order to get a loan.
All of that and more is
required of Habitat homeown-
ers.
"Jennifer qualified for her
house first," said Beth Ferris, co-
director of Habitat's family ser-
vices. "Jessica kept checking in
with me to see if anyone was
ahead of her in qualifying for the
Faith house."
The group of future Habitat
homeowners was informed that
18 town homes in Laurel would
be available as well as the two
houses on Pelican Road. The
first two people who saved
$1,000 toward the down pay-
ment and earned 100 sweat-
equity hours would qualify for
the houses.
Habitat requires a total down
payment of $1,750 and 300
sweat-equity hours for anyone
to purchase one of its homes.
"At first it was very hard for
me to take out money each week
to give to Habitat," Richardson
said. "In fact, my first payment
was from a chunk of child sup-
port that I no longer receive.
Now, I just try to save everything
I can."
Blackorby found that coming

up with the money was more
work than the sweat equity.
"Clearing up your credit and
saving up the money for the
down payment is real hard," she
said. "I can no longer buy the
kids the things that I used to if I
had a little money left over at the


end of he month."

to help earn the 300 sweat-equi-
ty hours for their home. Each
homeowner can have one other


person, friend or family member
help them earn the required
hours.
Habitat for Humanity doesn't
allow youths to work on the
houses until they are 16.

VHS rebuild inching forward


BY JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

The master plan for the
Venice High School has gone
mostly unchanged since March,
but officials connected to the
project say it is not yet finalized.
The roughly $120 million pro-
ject is still under discussion with
the Florida Department of Edu-
cation to determine exactly
which buildings will be ap-
proved for demolition and


which will remain.
So far, the only buildings offi-
cials plan to retain are the media
center, gymnasium, cafeteria
and administrative office. At
least a dozen of the 60-some
1950s-era buildings would be
torn down and replaced with
larger, up-to-date facilities.
The proposed plan to reno-
vate the 70-acre campus fea-
tures five new buildings, includ-
ing a central two- or three-story
classroom building that will run


north to south.
School officials say the cur-
rent multi-building campus
makes it hard to keep an eye on
students between classes. When
Venice High was built in 1955,
safe-school design principles
were practically nonexistent.
The new plan will make it much
easier to monitor the movement
of students throughout campus
by eliminating blind spots in

Two to snub VNC forum


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Two of three candidates vying
for a seat on city council don't
plan to attend a forum spon-
sored Monday by the Venice
Neighborhoods Coalition.
Perhaps it was the tone of the
invitation that Venice Neigh-
borhoods Coalition President
Tom Brener mailed earlier to city
council seat No. 2 candidates
from his home in Connecticut.
Maybe it was the coalition's dec-
laration of support for candidate


Kit McKeon. Or maybe, as
Emilio Carlesimo and John
Osmulski say, they are either too
busy or not interested.
The VNC questionnaire went
out late, giving candidates only a
few weeks to respond.
They're already scheduled to
attend the Venice Aviation So-
ciety Inc. candidate forum
Wednesday evening at city hall.
That forum is expected to
address largely the same topics
near and dear to coalition mem-

City and

Sharky's

reach deal

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

It looks as though the city of
Venice and Sharky's On The Pier
owners are ready to strike a deal.
City council will carefully con-
sider a new draft lease agree-
ment this week.
The city, which leases the
property to Sharky's, sued the
restaurant owners in 2006 over
blanks left in its lease. The
blanks are where the rent
amount was supposed to be
indicated and in the rent calcu-
lation.
The city wanted the blanks
filled in and to renegotiate the
rent, and it was asking a judge to
determine whether the lease
was valid.
Rejected
A year ago the city came up
with a number of stipulations it
hoped The Pier Group, owners
of Sharky's, would agree to:
All blanks within the lease
and expansion agreement
would be rectified with clear
terms explicitly identified.
Base rent would increase
from its current $12,000 to
$95,000 beginning this fiscal
year, with annual CPI increases
thereafter.
The city's percentage of rev-
enues would increase from the
current 5 percent to 6 percent of
gross receipts in excess of $1.5
million.
Pier Group would agree to
reimburse the city for one-half of
the costs of recently completed
parking lot, stormwater facilities
and festival grounds to the south
of the pier in the amount of
$594,709.
The Pier Group rejected the
offer.
New terms
Here's what city council will
consider Tuesday, Oct. 14, at its
regular meeting, according to a
draft agreement on the city Web
site:
All blanks within the lease
and expansion agreement
would be rectified with clear
terms explicitly identified.
Base rent will increase from
its current $12,000 to $108,000,
but not until the restaurant
completes its planned renova-
tions, with annual CPI increases
thereafter. That could happen
four to six years from now.
The city's percentage of rev-
enues will be 5 percent of gross
receipts in excess of $2.2 million.
Pier Group will reimburse
the city for approximately one-
half of the costs of recently com-
pleted parking lot, stormwater
facilities, festival grounds, and
pavilion in the amount of

LITTLE KNOWN FAMOUS FLORIDIANS
BY JOE "FASTHORSE" HARRILL






















CARLOS SUAREZ moved from Key West to
Sarasota in 1930 to play baseball for the Sarasota
Tigers. Suarez became friends with teammate
John J. Buck O'Neil, who grew up in Sarasota and
introduced Carlos to Allease Brown, his wife for 75
years. Unlike O'Neil, who left Florida to play for
and coach other teams, Suarez was content to
stay and play shortstop and third base for the
Tigers, the Bradenton Nine Devils and other state
teams in the Negro Leagues. When he wasn't play-
ing baseball, he managed Suarez Service Station
on 27th Street in the Newtown community, which
he owned and operated for 25 years. Carlos
Suarez died in Sarasota at the age of 94.

Kit McKeon for Venice City Council Seat #2.

Preserving Paradise

While Moving Forward
The direction of Venice's future is at a crucial point and I
want to work toward that future on behalf of its citizens.
We need a city council that works cooperatively on the
issues facing Venice.
To work on behalf of Venice and prepare myself, I have
attended virtually all of the Council Meetings and
workshops for the last year and a half I voluntarily
worked with other citizens and the Venice Airport
KIT MCKEON Business Association trying to find common ground so
that council could complete the Airport Masterplan Update.
I volunteered for and was selected to be a member of the Planning Commission.
And most recently, took the initiative to attend a seminar on "Open Government
and Politics" hosted by the Williams Parker Law Firm at the Sarasota Memorial
Hospital to become more knowledgeable about the Sunshine Law and Florida
Ethics Commission.
My priorities are:
* Responding to the Citizens of Venice
* Preserving Venice's Small Town Charm
* Enhancing a Vibrant and Successful Downtown
* Keeping Our Municipal Golf Course
* Keeping Our Airport Safe
SSupporting Sensible Growth and Redevelopment
* Protecting Our Sensitive Habitats
Venice has a unique personality; friendliness and culture that makes people want
to live here. We are lucky to be a part of this paradise. Help me to preserve our
paradise while moving forward with sensible growth.
Vote for me for Venice City Council Seat 2 on November 4.

To find out more about my views, please visit http://www.KitMcKeon.com

SUN NEWSPAPERS 3A


Tiger Bay adds spice to candidate forum


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Friday's candidate
forum at Venetian Golf &
River Club was similar to
one a day earlier at a
Sertoma Club of Venice/-
Venice-Nokomis Rotary
Club forum joint meeting,
but with a bit more spice.
The event was spon-
sored by the South County
Tiger Bay Club, noted for
occasionally skewering its
guest speakers.
Friday's event was no
different.
Land-use attorney Jeff
Boone came up with the
most original question of
the forum. He managed to
get all three candidates for
city council Seat No. 2 to
agree to "walk the talk"
when it comes to their
commitment to keeping
Venice quaint.
Businesses and devel-


opers are often required by
the city to provide walka-
bility within their projects,
he said. "You all live within
walking distance of city
hall. Will you pledge to
walk to city hall?"
John Osmulski and Kit
McKeon agreed. Emilio
Carlesimo gave a qualified
"yes, after I have my knee
surgery," he joked in refer-
ence to his house-to-
house campaigning.
Jet set
Another questioner
managed to get all three
candidates to support jets
at the airport.
It's been a concern,
with council actively tak-
ing steps to reduce its
impact on surrounding
neighborhoods.
"Aircraft already there
are going to be allowed
there in the future," Mc-
Keon said, but "I wouldn't


want it to be a mega air-
port."
"In all the years I've
lived here in Golden Beach
only three times it both-
ered me," Osmulski said,
referring to aircraft noise.
If the city would just
agree to a Part 150 Noise
Study it would "settle this
once and for all," he said
about noise complaints.
Carlesimo agreed jets
should be allowed to con-
tinue service into Venice
Municipal Airport. A
retired firefighter, he said
he delivered donor organs
via jet at the airport in the
middle of the night.
Military transport jets
might also need access in
case of emergency, he
said.
Districting
The fact that all three
candidates live almost
within a stone's throw of


each other led to ques-
tions about their ability or
willingness to represent
residents from other parts
of the city.
Osmulski said he felt it
was time to again look at
districts for city council
seats.
Carlesimo agreed.
McKeon didn't commit
to districting, but did say
he's represent residents
throughout the city.
Candidates struggled to
come up with specific
ideas to draw tourists to
the area, but agreed to
consider all proposals and
hedged their answers by
saying they'd do what's
best for the city.
Legal fees
Once again the issue
was raised of who should
pay in case council mem-
bers and others are found
guilty of violating the


Sunshine Law.
Osmulski and Carle-
simo agreed those found
guilty should foot the bill.
McKeon gave a quali-
fied "maybe," in cases of a
"heinous crime."
Another questioner took
it a step further and asked
whether anyone who might
be found guilty should
resign.
Osmulski said the state
ethics commission should
handle it.
"The punishment should
fit the crime," McKeon
said. "If it's malicious
intent possibly."
If it's blatant, said Carle-
simo, "then yes, they should
be forced to resign."
He took that a step fur-
ther and reiterated Osm-
ulski's previous call for
McKeon to withdraw from
the city council race.
A subpoena was recent-
ly issued for McKeon's e-


mails among council
members and neighbor-
hood association mem-
bers in connection to the
Sunshine suit.
Plaintiffs in the case
aren't alleging McKeon did
anything wrong. At this
point, Andrea Mogensen,
the plaintiff's attorney, is
trying to complete the pic-
ture of what went on.
Copies of e-mails sub-
poenaed between Mc-
Keon and Council Me-
mber Sue Lang were made
available alongside candi-
date brochures at the
forum.
This is "why you should
vote for me," said McKeon.
"I'm innocent until proven
guilty. These two should
wait for the facts to be pre-
sented before judging me
and making emotional
decisions."

Algae detected at Siesta Key and New Pass beaches


BY DANA SANCHEZ
ASSISTANT
ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

Low levels of Karenia
brevis, the algae that cause
red tide, showed up in
recent water samples col-
lected near New Pass and
Siesta Key Beach, accord-
ing to officials at Mote
Marine Laboratory and
Aquarium.
The last big outbreak of


red tide in 2005 caused
coughing and scratchy
throats in humans and
killed fish for a prolonged
period. High numbers
have been detected since
then, but none resulted in
a prolonged outbreak.
"It's been very quiet,"
said Bill Richardson,
marine research associate
with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Commission in St.
Petersburg.


Of five recent water
samples taken in Sarasota,
three were negative for
Karenia, one had back-
ground levels and one had
extremely low levels.
Karenia brevis occurs
naturally in the Gulf,
according to the commis-
sion. Background levels -
1,000 cells per liter or less
- showing up in the water
mean the organism is
within the range of nor-


mal. Extremely low levels
are considered to be 1,000
to 5,000 cells per liter. High
levels are a million cells or
more.
Although Karenia is
found naturally in Gulf
waters, it hasn't shown up
in water samples, even in
background levels, since


April.
"There were low con-
centrations, just a blip,"
Richardson said.
In addition to Sarasota
County beaches, back-
ground concentrations of
Karenia were found in
water samples collected
off Pine Island in Lee


County and Clam Pass in
Collier County.
Algal blooms form off-
shore, and some never
make landfall, depending
on currents and winds,
Richardson said.

bers Venice Municipal
Airport and the noise it
produces.
Brener told Carlesimo
and Osmulski via e-mail
the forum will take place
with or without them on
Monday at 2:30 p.m. at the
Venice Public Library.
"I regret that you have
chosen not to participate,"
he wrote to Carlesimo on
Oct. 8.
Brener didn't help his
case when he chastised
Osmulski and Carlesimo
for "refusing to answer the
written questions." Then
he asked Carlesimo and
Osmulski to reconsider by
making a concession.
"Rather than exclude
these candidates or em-
ploy a double standard, we
will put aside the ques-
tionnaire, and instead
allow a free flow of ques-
tions and answers at our
meeting," Brener said via
e-mail.
But the damage had
been done.
"Thank you for the invi-
tation to speak to your
group," Osmulski replied.
"After careful considera-


tion, I find I must decline."
"It is very considerate of
you to change the format
of your candidate's for-
um," replied Carlesimo.
"However, your first invita-
tion was September 22,
2008, and since then, as
you can imagine, my time
has become very commit-
ted. I am sorry, but I have
to decline your invitation
due to a scheduling con-
flict."

Return volley
The snub may have
been tit-for-tat.
Last month Carlesimo
was denied access to a
Golden Beach Association
meeting where he hoped
to learn more about the
group's concerns.
Osmulski wasn't invited
to a Venice Taxpayers
League candidate forum,
while the other candidates
were.
Both organizations have
close ties or share some
members with the Venice

The city has approved
roughly $8 million in 1-
cent sales surtax revenue
to fund the construction of
the hall. Marsh said the
board will be negotiating
the details of operational
uses and costs in the com-
ing months.
Supporters of the per-
formance arts center
include the Venice Sym-
phony, which currently
perform in the Church of
the Nazarene.
Other beneficiaries of
the hall might include the
Venice Concert Band,
Suncoast Sweet Adelines
and a host of other organi-

"As soon as Patrick turned 16 this sum-
mer, he asked if he could volunteer and
help his mom," Ferris said.
"I started working at the Collins Road
houses on the sheds," he said. "It's good
experience, and working on our house
gives me an idea of how it is made and if
any problems come up, I might have an
idea about what's wrong."

Sweat equity
Blackorby doesn't find the sweat equi-
ty difficult.
"I'm very energetic, so the work isn't
hard for me," she said.
Spending less on her children and not
being with them while working on the
house is hard, so she takes the younger
boys to see the house frequently.
"I don't want them to feel deprived,"
she said. "I want them to see the process
and see how the house is coming."
Both women work and raise their fam-
ilies alone and still make the time and


find the energy to build their homes and
pinch pennies. The only day they can
work on the houses is Saturday. Some
evenings after work, they run aluminum-
can collection routes and deliver the cans
to the recycling bin at the Habitat Re-
Store.
"I spend Sunday with the boys, so we
have that time together," Blackorby said.
"They haven't been able to join any
sports, because I can't afford to fill up any
more of our time until we're in the house
and settled."
Blackorby said she and the boys are
cutting back on spending in certain areas
and they're not spending money on any

OUR VIEW


Shine more light in the state Legislature


Y ou'd be hard-pressed to find citi-
zens in favor of less openness in
government, less public access to
meetings and records, less sunshine on
the decision-making process that governs
their lives.
The Sunshine State has a long history of
sunshine in the operation of government.
The Legislature first passed a public
records law in 1909 that ensured citizen
access to all agency records, except in
instances expressly exempted by the
Legislature. (More about that later.)
The Govemment-in-the-Sunshine Law
was enacted in 1967. That basic law was
embedded in the state Constitution by
voters in 1992 in response to legal threats.
There is no doubt the people of this
state feel transparency brings them a bet-
ter, more responsive government.
For local government officials, the Sun-


shine Law can be a monumental pain in
the neck.
City and county commissioners must
be extremely careful not to huddle infor-
mally and discuss anything that could be
construed as public business. Personal e-
mails can be monitored. Citizen watch-
dogs will be nipping at your heels if you're
not careful. Just ask the growing number of
past and present city of Venice officials
entangled in the Sunshine lawsuit.
For public servants, the law raises the
bar of responsibility. It creates a climate of
openness and clarity, and also the public
perception that any business conducted
in the shadowy comers of the law is sus-
pect. Public officials trade inconvenience
for heightened public trust. That's a fair
trade; the more trust the better.
That standard should extend far be-
yond local governments to the seat of


power in the capital in Tallahassee. Un-
fortunately it does not.
One provision of the state lawis that the
Legislature gets to write its own rules. And
guess what? They are far more restrictive
than the rules that apply to local govern-
ments.
Don't think that situation has gone
without notice. The County Commission
of Seminole County recently passed a res-
olution calling for a constitutional amend-
ment that would require legislators to
operate under the same laws they have to
follow. The resolution is making its way
around to other commissions in the state.
We think it's a capital idea.
"There are many public officials and
citizens who would agree that the Leg-
islature should be governed by the same
rules as the rest of the local agencies," said
Adria Harper, director of the First Amend-


ment Foundation, based in Tallahassee.
The problem with the Legislature's
semi-Sunshine Law is that its loopholes
allow legislators wide latitude, far more
than local elected officials, Harper said.
And that creates a air of distrust, whether
it's merited or not. That's the problem.
You may ask, no more back-room
deals? No more last-minute bills that ap-
pear magically just before a vote is taken?
How will the sausage get made?
Out in the open, for everyone to see.
"The best reason is 'why not?' Harper
said. "Why not make the decision-making
process of government as open as possi-
ble?"
One of the reasons confidence in gov-
ernment is lacking is that our elected offi-
cials make sure they don't have to play by
the rules they make for others. That needs
to stop.


Change the law


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


What is there about the
job of sheriff that it has to
be a partisan race? If the
sheriff is a Republican, is
he or she more likely to be
fiscally responsible? There
certainly is no historical
data to support that. One
might conclude also, then,
that he or she would be
against abortion and in
favor of guns unless
they are in the hands of the
bad guys.
It just doesn't make
sense that this race is a
partisan race. I know that
the primary election must
have cost the sheriff candi-
dates hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars money
that could have been spent
stimulating the economy.
Political races don't do that
much. Maybe they help
direct-mail companies,
pollsters and TV stations,
and yes, the newspaper
gets some political adver-
tising, but not much.
If we had one complete-
ly nonpartisan election,
we would likely save the
candidates some money
and have a less-cluttered
community with fewer
signs to disrupt our lives
and fewer annoying
phones calls.
The office that really
blows my mind for being
partisan is public defend-
er. Why in the heck would
we make that a political
race? Is there something
about being a Democrat
that might make you a bet-
ter public defender -
maybe more compassion?
This position is supposed
to just deal in facts, maybe
with some emotional final
arguments once in awhile.
We had two very good
Republican candidates in
the public defender pri-
mary: Larry Eger and Ron
Filipkowski. In our inter-
views there was nothing
that seemed "Republican"
about these choices. It
makes no sense that judi-
cial elections are nonparti-
san and this one partisan.
So why should we crowd
the November ballot with
races that really have noth-
ingto do with party philos-
ophy and could have been
taken care of in the prima-
ry?
How about the hospital
board? Here we have an
unpaid job, yet we want
these poor folks to slug
their way through both a
primary and a general


election. It is stupid at best.
If it is a partisan race, are
we setting ourselves to
have politicians to run as
opposed to health-care
professionals? I'd rather
have the health experi-
ence.
The same illogical
thread goes through the
clerk of court's position,
the tax collector and the
property appraiser. How
about the Charter Review
Board itself? It would
seem, being an impartial
body, it should be nonpar-
tisan.
In fact, though, all local
races are partisan races
except school board, city
council and judges. There
is no logic to it.
In Venice, the council
race is nonpartisan under
the city charter. That does
not guarantee that it won't
have some partisan influ-
ence, as last year by the
Democratic Party support-
ing one group of candi-
dates and the Republican
Party supporting the other.
Yet in general it is nice -
one election, not two.
Florida law establishes
that elections of judges
and school boards are to
be nonpartisan. It is silent
on the others, but allows
charter governments to
establish whether their
races are partisan or not.
Strangely, the Sarasota
Charter is silent on this. It
could be done either way,
it would seem.
In Lee County there was
interest in changing the
charter to make the county
commission nonpartisan.
The county attorney
received an opinion from
the state attorney general
saying the county could
change the charter to
make that race nonparti-
san. It did not however,
happen.
It appears we could
change our charter to
make all of these county
races nonpartisan. A closer
examination of state law
might lead to a different
conclusion, but certainly
that's not readily apparent
from a couple of people's
readings of the state
statutes.
We say we are sick of
partisan politics. Well, here
is a chance to actually do
something about it.
We should change the
charter to simplify the
process, stop the waste
and the disruption in our
lives and do what is right.
The Charter Review
Board is generally a pas-
sive entity but it is here
that it can and should act
to make positive change.

pered to my horse but it

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Water savings a drop in the bucket


Editor:
Some points on the editorial, County going green
saves taxpayers' green.
Perhaps the county did save 9 million gallons of
drinking water by switching to reuse water in its cooling
system. But that's because the county, I believe, still
wastes some reuse water.
Consider Venice: It has used all of its reuse water for
years, and can't save drinking water by switching any
system to reuse water. I've been amazed all these years
that Venice has never bragged about its efficient use of
water. Other water districts continue to waste reuse
water, but would like to be part of a unified water district.
Another major project listed was the installation of
some 300 water-free urinals saving $92,000 a year. Each
unit saves $300 of water ayear. At a saving of $4 per 1,000
gallons, that's 75,000 gallons of water. So, at 1 liter per
flush (a liter is a little more than a quart) the old units
were each flushed about 300,000 times a year, or 1,000
times a day.
As I (and many others) have pointed out, until the
acreage of watered landscaping is controlled, any dis-
cussion of water conservation is a waste of time.

Let them stew
for a while
Editor:
A black hole at CERN is
less likely than the one our
government is forming in
the world's financial envi-
ronment. I can not imag-
ine anything approaching
infinity as a debt limit of
$11.3 trillion.
This commitment in-
cludes set-asides of $700
billion for the super bail-
out of unspecified entities
on top of a $500 billion
budget deficit already pro-
jected; $200 billion for
Freddie and Fannie (which
includes an $800 billion
raise to the debt limit earli-
er this year to help trou-
bled borrowers refinance
mortgages) and $85 billion
for AIG.
This does not include
the costly wars this admin-


istration leaves. Exclusive
of the wars, we the taxpay-
ers will be left with a
$32,300 debt load for every
man, woman and child in
the United States, given
the "worst case" black
hole.
Is there a plan for recov-
ery? No, just hopeful
phrases: "We may make a
profit on selling the debt";
"We may build market
confidence"; "We are sav-
ing the taxpayers from a
much higher cost."
I think the president,
his cabinet and Congress
owe the American people
a well-thought-out, detail-
ed plan of investment,
recovery and prevention.
Our leaders should use
good business principles
and not compound the
maverick behavior of the
financial community we


are trying to cor
should see the
ment's plan for r
these markets to
us from future o
business greed.
The folks who
firms at risk shou

LET 'EM HAVE IT: WOULD THE AVAILABILITY OF BUS SHELTERS MAKE YOU MORE LIKELY TO RIDE A SCAT BUS? CALL US AT 207-1111.


Like the song says, 'Gimme shelter'


Need a seat. Kudos to SCAT. It's wonderful to have
transportation. I feel I'm back in civilization. My only
complaint is that there are very few benches at the bus
stops. I see people sitting on the ground and standing up
in the sun. I checked up in Sarasota and they have very
good benches and shelters at their bus stops. I would
really like to see some improvement on that. You'd get
lots more customers if you have somewhere for the peo-
ple to sit and wait for the bus. Maybe if there's some
money left from the Legacy Trail, it could be applied to
donating benches at the bus stops, especially Nokomis
and the outlying sections of the county.


Runaround. What a
shame it was that our
regional girls cross coun-
try event could not be held
at PinebrookWellfield as it
has been for the last sever-
al years. Why? The county


attached a $1,000 fee for
the event to return to
Wellfield. As it turned out,
the fee was not paid and
the event was held instead
in and around the high
school. What a shock to


our visiting teams when
they've been so used to
being at the Pinebrook
Wellfield course. While the
girls were participating at a
new course, our county
was out $1,000, which I'm
not concerned about, but
we are now attaching these
huge fees to our athletic
school events while the
county spends more than
this on a food, wine and
beer ribbon-cutting at the
Nokomis Beach pavilion. I
think it's unbelievable that
we have these two diamet-
rically different events, one
being entertainment and
the other one for the good


of our girls. It just doesn't
seem to be right.
Healthy. It was shock-
ing to read that Rick Tacy
and others will receive
$20,000 of health insur-
ance for the rest of their
lives as the result of serv-
ing six years in office. This
could amount to some-
thing like $400,000 or
more in the course of a
lifetime.
Greg Giles is a good
writer, let's have him do an
investigation on this in-
surance policy and the
other insurance policy for
city of Venice and county
workers. Rick Tacy has
been on the council for six
years and this came up in
2004 originally, and he


says he doesn't know
about it because it never
comes up. It's amazing it is
not a line item in the bud-
get.
Great job. Insurance
for council members: I feel
that city council should
revoke that policy giving
insurance for life. It's not
right. It's not fair. Serving is
an honor and a privilege.
Martin, Lang, Ernie and
Moore are doing a great
job. They're looking out for
the citizens.
Facts. This is in re-
sponse to all of the talk
about e-mails and council
candidates who are run-
ning for election: First,
state law decides if the city
pays attorneys, not coun-


cil candidates. Second, the
following facts obviously
aren't known by these can-
didates who talk so much,
which is inexcusable. Fact
one, the charges have
been filed by a convicted
felon.
Fact two, no one has
been found guilty of a
Sunshine Law violation.
Fact three, the convicted
felon involved has not
answered the court's ques-
tions about his back-
ground nor his motiva-
tion. Fact four, the convict-
ed felon's attorney is at-
tempting to ask for outra-
geous fees for this process.
Fact five, the convicted
felon lives in Sarasota, not
Venice.

Archer breaks record as Indians roll Pirates 46-17


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

In the fourth quarter, on
second and five at the
Pirates' 35, Venice High
School tailback Dri Archer
needed two yards to break
the school record for rush-
ing yards in a single game.
He got 24.
It was just that kind of
night for the senior speed-
ster. Archer broke Tre
Smith's record of 327 yards,
set in 2001 against Bloom-
ingdale High School, with
356 yards on 25 carries. He
also scored four touch-
downs. He also passed the
1,000-yard mark for the
season.
"I'm tired," Archer said
soon after the game. "I'm
ready to go home and go
to bed."
He deserves the much-
needed rest. Archer acc-
ounted for more than half
of the Indian's point total


and offensive output. Ven-
ice High School totaled
542 yards of offense 419
of that on the ground as
they pounded Port Char-
lotte High School 46-17 on
homecoming Friday night
at Powell-Davis Stadium.
"I've been telling every-
body there's no surprise,"
Venice head coach John
Peacock said. "He's a spe-
cial player."
Archer's longest run of
the evening was an 89-
yard touchdown scamper
in the second quarter,
which gave Venice a 19-10
lead.
After the Pirates (2-3, 0-
2) answered with a one-
yard touchdown blast by
Jeremy Brown, Archer
scored on the next play -
a 69-yard run for his third
score of the evening.
Later in the game, he
added his fourth and final
touchdown on an 85-yard
dash.


SUN PHOTO BY JUSTIN FENNELL, jfennell@venicegondolier.com
No. 65 James Auxier made an interception in the second
quarter that gained the Indians 29 yards.


GRADING THE INDIANS

Quarterbacks: A
Trey Burton completed 70
percent of his throws and ran for
two touchdowns. Venice fumbled
the ball four times, losing two,
but none of them was Burton's.
Gator coaches were surely
pleased to see that.
Running backs: A-
That's right, minus. Archer
had a career day, averaging
more than 14 yards per carry
and scoring four touchdowns.
He broke a school record for
rushing yards in a game and
surpassed 1,000 yards with four
regular-season games remain-
ing. However, three fumbles -
two in a row inside the Port
Charlotte 10 will have a neg-
ative affect on the grade.


His first was a ho-hum
15-yarder.
On such a big night for
the 5-foot-7, 158-pounder,
it was easy for a certain
University of Florida-
bound junior to get lost in
the mix. Venice quarter-
back Trey Burton was 7-
for-10 for 123 yards. The
junior also scored two
rushing touchdowns.
None of this was as easy
as it seems, at least not
early on.
Port Charlotte (2-3, 0-2
in 5A-11) had the Indians
on pins and needles in the
first quarter. Venice led 12-
10 after one period. But
crucial mistakes and a
slew of personal fouls
proved too much to over-
come for the Pirates. Port
Charlotte committed 13
penalties for 122 yards,
including nine personal
fouls.
"We're going to deal
with that issue," Port Char-
lotte head coach David
Hoffer said. "That's totally
unacceptable, regardless
of the situation. Those
kinds of things can't hap-
pen and I'll take personal
responsibility for that ... It
won't happen again."
Quarterback Sam Thur-
ston showed flashes of
brilliance in the loss, how-
ever, utilizing his big tar-
get, wideout Mikhail Mor-
gan, as he completed 12 of
18 passes for 182 yards and
a touchdown.
Two interceptions in
the second quarter marred
an otherwise great perfor-
mance.
"Sam does a great job.
He's a competitor," Hoffer
said. "He did a really nice
job, I though."
Port Charlotte's leading
rusher was Joe Bennet
with 28 yards on 10 carries.


Receivers: A+
No dropped passes. This unit
caught everything thrown their
way. Robert Fordham had a big
night, catching two passes for
66 yards. Beckett Wales is as
sure-handed a target as any,
grabbing two for 34 yards.

Offensive line: B
Port Charlotte has one of the
area's worst run defenses, so
Archer was expected to have a
big day. Still, he's expected to
have a big day every day, so
kudos to the line for creating big
openings and allowing the tail-
back to get into the open field.
Protection for Burton has to
improve. Two sacks is two too
many.

Dri Archer set a new Venice High record by running for 356 yards in a single game.


The Pirates totaled just
71 yards on the ground.
After Venice took an
early 12-0 lead, Port
Charlotte battled back
with two unanswered
scores.
Thurston hit Morgan
on a 16-yard touchdown
strike to cut the lead to
12-7.
On the Pirate's next
possession, kicker Sam-
uel Costa booted a 30-
yarder to cut the lead to
two.
Archer's two back-
breakers and a second
two-yard score by Bur-
ton put the game out of
reach.
Venice won their first
homecoming game in
six years and will head
into the bye week with a
perfect record. On the
other side of that bye
looms a murderous two-


Defensive line: A
The Pirates had zero run
game Friday night. Port
Charlotte averaged 2.5 yards
per carry. Brandon Wilkinson got
his seventh sack of the season.
James Auxier came up with an
interception despite the club for
a cast on his right hand.

Linebackers: A
Kye Rodgers picked off
another pass, his second of the
year. Ethan Mix was all over the
field and came up with a big
stop on third and one when the
Pirates were still in it. Mix also
earned homecoming king, which
has to count for something.
Credit Mix and his fellow cap-
tains for keeping the team
focused during a distraction-


game stretch at Char-
lotte Oct. 24 and home
against Manatee on Hal-
loween night.
"We've got a huge one
next Friday that's going
to be a make or break for
somebody," Peacock
said. "(The two-game
stretch) is going to be no
tougher than it was last
year and no tougher
than the last two."
Venice beat Charlotte
and Manatee in back-
to-back weeks last year
as the Indians captured
the district title.
Charlotte defeated
Manatee Friday night,
setting up a clash of the
unbeatens in two weeks.
Port Charlotte next
hosts Mariner High
School Friday at 7 p.m.

filled week.
Defensive backs: C
Sam Thurston is a good quar-
terback, but probably not as
good as the Venice defense
made him look. Both intercep-
tions were a result of pressure
from the D-line, and when
Thurston had time he picked
apart the secondary for 195
yards and a score.

Special teams: B-
Kicker Javier Aguadelo is
near perfect on extra points
when they don't get blocked.
The line has to hold their blocks
just a little bit longer to give the
leg some time. Port Charlotte
blocked two extra points, which
were looming pretty large in the
first quarter.

Health, fatigue slow cross country


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High School
girls cross country team
called up two freshman
runners from the junior-
varsity level for the Riv-
erview Invitational Satur-
day at McIntosh Middle
School in Sarasota.
With Amberose Cour-
ville out sick, the Lady
Indians called upon fresh-
men Juliana Cavallaro
(25:30) and Thalia Meza
(25:33) to pick up the
slack. They finished 75th
and 77th, respectively, in
their first-ever varsity
meet.
"They looked like they
were scared to death, but
that's what they're sup-
posed to look like," Venice
girls head coach Brenda
Clark said. "They did well."
Venice's other fresh-
man, Kelly White (22:53),
who began the season on
the varsity team and has
led the Indians in every


meet, finished in the top-
25 at No. 22. Clark was
pleased with the running
of Cynthia Flynn-Mel-
endez (23:07), who fin-
ished 26th.
Some of the veterans,
however, had a rough day.
Lucy Horton (24:41) bat-
tled with a side stitch for
much of the race as she
placed 60th. Rosa Canas
(23:07) placed 32nd while
fighting off allergies.
Clark said she was
pleased with the way her
team dealt with a little
adversity on a wet, grassy,
slow course.
"The one thing that I
like the most was that the
other teammates saw
them struggling and pick-
ed them up. They either
came up past them or they
got up next to them and
kind of pulled them along
with them," Clark said.
"They worked as a team
today."

Center helps children and families


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Children with developmental problems are a fact of
life.
Helping them and their families is the mission of
The Florida Center for Child and Family Development,
which has a facility in Venice.
Developmental problems can happen to anyone.
Children do not all adjust to socialization at the same
pace or in the same way.
"Our child was biting other children in preschool,"
Melissa Caldwell said. "Nobody has answers for things
like that," Melissa said. "As a parent you aren't sure. You
have nowhere to turn. The teachers (in many
preschools) are not educated to deal with these prob-
lems and then one day I was told he (her son) couldn't
come back."
Caldwell is a Realtor with the Richard Bradway firm.
Her husband, Kelly Caldwell, CEO of Caldwell Trust, is
on the board of the Florida Center. Despite his board
position at the center, neither parent thought of going
there with their child until it was suggested to them by
Dick Aubrey at the Venice YMCA.
Caldwell said the problem is traumatic for the child
too because the other children tended to ostracize him
and "you don't want your child to be the bully of the
school."
When the Caldwells turned to the Florida Center,
they found the help they needed, someone to "socially
coach" their son and also help them.
"She gave me little story books to read to him,"
Melissa said. "It was a reward system. It could have
been a more serious problem and she would have
detected that too."
The Florida Center deals with a multitude of child
development problems, including autism and fetal
alcohol diagnosis. Its programs include speech, occu-
pational and speech therapy plus a variety of services
to help parents and children adjust and deal with their
problems.
The Caldwell's son has been working with the thera-
pist for more than two months. He goes to the center
Monday, Wednesday and Friday for classes and the


therapist attends class with him once a week for 90
minutes each time. She calls Melissa after class to dis-
cus the boy and his progress.
"She observes the whole class," Caldwell said. "It is a
great experience."
Biting is just one of many symptoms.
"There are kids who have been kicked out of two
and three preschools and they are just 3 years old,"
center director Jennifer Horton-Clarke said. "We see it
all the time."
EJ, then 2 1/2, was diagnosed with pervasive devel-
opmental disorder, which is similar to autism, attorney
Christine Robinson said. The child was behind in
speech and had a sensory disorder that manifested
itself like a 2-year-old's temper tantrum.
"His senses were over stimulated and sometimes
under stimulated," she said. "He was behind in both
gross and fine motor skills."
The diagnosis was made by a pediatrician.
"We came to the Florida Center for occupational
therapy."
EJ has thee sessions of speech therapy and two ses-
sions of occupational therapy each week. Clare Smith
is the therapist who is working to bring him up to nor-
mal. They worked together for more than 10 months.
At home, the family has a homemade balance beam,
a trampoline and a coffee can filled with poker chips.
"She is teaching us how to give him therapy,"
Robinson said. "We caught him in that window so he
was able to overcome obstacles. She has given our
child the life of a child."
She said he will always have sensory issues but he is
learning to deal with them. The coach even went to his
preschool to meet with the teacher and instruct her in
how to deal with the child because something as nor-
mal as a fire drill can set him off. By telling him ahead
of time to expect it, he is better able to deal with it,
Robinson said.
Like the Caldwells, the family had a connection with
the center but did not realize how it could help them
deal with their own child's problem.
Serving on the United Way board, husband Eric, a
CPA, had a tour of the center.
"I had come along, looked and forgot," Christine
said. "I can't tell you the kind of life we had."


They couldn't go to church without an incident.
"It is life changing," she said. "It benefited the entire
family. It is so nice it is here."
In addition to the Venice facility on Gulf Coast
Boulevard, there are centers in North Port and
Sarasota.
"Programs here interface with programs throughout
the county," center advocate Paul Borgman said.
The center has been here for 12 years although only
known as the Florida Center for the past three years,
Christine Robinson said.
"People who didn't know about it were driving to
Bradenton," she said. "We have this gem here."
Autism treatment is another aspect of the center's
work.
FormerVenice Mayor Fred Hammett got involved
with the center because of the book, "There's a Boy in
Here," written by a high school friend, Judy Barron. The
book was about her son, who had autism. Barron and
her son both learned to deal with the condition. Today
her son is a reporter.
"Autism can be so severe, it impacts the neighbor-
hood," Hammett said. "What a huge difference to get
them in here. Parent involvement is so critical."
"It's work to try to find what you need," Robinson
said. "Had I started here, it would have been easier."
Board member Judy Collins is a long-time activist
for the center.
"I want the community to know what is going on
and that this campus is for Venice," she said. The Gulf
Coast Community Foundation of Venice has been a
major donor to the center, with grants in excess of
$600,000. The annual operating expenses are $1.8 mil-
lion.
To that end, there will be an open house Oct. 21,
from 5-6:30 p.m. at the center, 800 Gulf Coast Blvd.,
Venice. To make reservations, call Paul Borgmann at
371-8820, Ext. 1010.
"The Florida Center is a good resource with good
successes," Robinson said. "It doesn't compete with
other agencies but collaborates with them."
To date it has served more than 6,000 children and
families throughout Sarasota County.

Tips to protect your

health in a recession


BY PAUL REYES, RPH
GUEST WRITER

There are ways to safe-
guard your health care -
and health against eco-
nomic downturns. Still,
people often look to cut
prescription costs first
when trying to trim health
care spending and they
often take dangerous steps
to do so.
Sharing medications or
skipping doses can be
dangerous and, unless
told to do so by a doctor,
taking half tablets may
cause side effects or the
tablets to lose potency.
Instead, try the following
money-saving tips:
Choose generics: Ask
your doctor if there is a
generic medication avail-
able to treat your condi-
tion, even if you've taken
the same medication for a
period of time. Generics
can save up to 80 percent
for each prescription.


Check online: Do
some online cost-compar-
ison shopping. Checkyour
health plan or pharmacy
plan's site. Sites such as My
Rx Choices on medco.com
have cost-comparison
tools that show you poten-
tial savings when you
choose lower-cost options
such as a generic instead
of a brand medication or
order through the mail
rather than your pharma-
cy. The Consumer Reports
Best Buy Drugs Web site
(consumerreports.org/he
alth) recommends the
best medications based on
effectiveness and cost.
Discount programs:
Check for discount pro-
grams. For example, the
Medco Rx Discount Pro-
gram, while not an insur-
ance program, provides
enrollees an opportunity
to save an average of 14 to
45 percent off prescription

Drayton Hall is a national treasure


FROM DRAYTON HALL

Set back from the Ash-
ley River Road and sur-
rounded by marshlands,
river, woods and broad
unspoiled vistas,
Drayton Hall has pre-
served the authentic
American and distinctive-
ly Southern experience as
it was lived through the
centuries. No wonder that
it has been the inspiration
for countless painters,
photographers, writers
and other artists and arti-
sans over the years.
Over the past 18
months, Carole Tinkey,
creative director for the
Museum Shop, and a de-
signer, potter and jewelry
maker, has tapped into
the considerable talents of
regional artists and crafts-
people to create a collec-
tion of items unique to
the South Carolina Low-
country and exclusive to
Drayton Hall.
"Our goal is to establish
a strong link between the
Museum Shop and the
property as a whole to
reflect the many layers of
Drayton Hall," she said.
"We are not only working
to identify established and
emerging Lowcountry
artists and provide them
with a venue for their
work, but we are also
seeking to identify and
revitalize forgotten arts
whose traditions may
have more humble ori-
gins."

BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

Faithful readers may recall a column I
wrote months ago about my love of gad-
gets. Admittedly it's a guy thing, but I have
as bad a case as anyone with a "Y" chro-
mosome.
So it may come as a surprise to you
that when cell phones first got small and
relatively cheap (though not yet free), I
hesitated to get one. Mind you, I didn't
wait long, but I didn't jump right in.
Looking back, I can see that the
process I went through in persuading
myself to go cellular bears a striking
resemblance to Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-
Ross' five stages of death, though not in
the typical order: denial (I don't really
need to pay for the privilege of other peo-
ple being able to get in touch with me
whenever they want); bargaining (though
it would mean I'd have a phone in an
emergency; besides, people without cell
phones are losers); acceptance (I guess I'll
have to bite the bullet if I want to keep up
with the Joneses); depression (Why is no
one calling me or asking to look at my
cool new phone?); and anger (That's the
bill for a month?).
Now I have a so-called "smart phone."
How smart? Well, it has a lot more memo-

ry than I do, for one thing. And it lets me
be inundated by e-mails as well as phone
calls, so I'm really never out of reach
(though I'm still often out of touch).
But the feature that makes it all worth
it is being able to surf the Internet pretty
much anywhere. I don't know how I did
without this ability for so long (though I
blame Alexander Graham Bell for not
inventing cell phones in the first place).
This is not a commercial for my partic-
ular phone or service (though I'm not
opposed to doing one if either company
wants me to; my e-mail address appears
below). It is a reflection on human intelli-
gence and the speed of technological
change, which has taken me from phones
connected to a wall to phones connected
to the world in just a few decades.
With nothing more than my phone I
can read the New York Times, visit the
Louvre or see how the Rays are doing. I
can travel the world without leaving my
home, a fact I am beginning to bore peo-
ple with.
I refuse, however, to get one of those
wireless earphone doodads. Nobody, but
nobody, needs to be that connected at
least not until Al Gore invents the talking
Internet.

CINDY GNEGY
COLUMNIST


The Community Housing
Trust of Sarasota County and
the Laurel Civic Association
held a Financial Fitness and
Housing Fair on Oct. 4, at the
Laurel Community Center.
Exhibitors presented informa-
tion on everything from credit
counseling, down-payment
assistance, understanding mort-
gage loans and why now is the
best time to buy a home.
Outside the center, a health
fair and garage sale was was in


full swing. It was presented by
the Habitat ReStore and the
Laurel Civic Association. The
parking lot was buzzing with
garage sale hopefuls.
"I'm finding some things,
and some things that I might
use," said Englewood resident,
Joe West, as he chuckled.
"I don't know that I need all
this stuff, but it's for a good
cause," Pravin Patel said.
"We go fishing all the time,"
said Jean Schexnayder as she
and her grandson, Ian, fished
through a box full of fishing
tackle.
The Friends of Legacy Trail
provided free bicycle helmets
and people lined up not only to
receive the helmet but also the
instructions on the proper fit.
Lyndsay Ollberding said
her 2-year-old son Sawyer was
fitted for a helmet and wore it
for an hour.
"I will get on the trail now
that I have a helmet," said
Birgitta Lindberg after receiv-
ing her helmet and a map of


the Legacy Trail.
Inside the community cen-
ter, businesses and nonprofit
organizations were on hand
to provide education and
guidance.
Craft lady Kim Slade, so
nicknamed for her crafty ideas
for events, prevailed again with
a colorful fall display for The
Women's Council of Realtors.
Bill Millner of the Venice
Concert Band stopped to chat
with Gwen Heggan, a Realtor
with Richard Bradway and
Associates. Although Millner
came to peruse the informa-
tion on hand, he didn't want to
leave without providing a little
education of his own.
"We're having a salute to
veterans on Nov. 10, at the
Venice Community Center and
we only charge $5," he said.
Planting
seeds of wisdom
Sept. 26 was Johnny Apple-
seed's birthday, and it was
celebrated by the children


at Venice Nokomis United
Methodist Child Care Center
with "Johnny" passing out
apples to each child. Each
child also received an apple
seed to plant.
"Johnny Appleseed, Erick
Totten, was a former student
at the preschool and grandson
of one of its teachers," said
Barbara Zier, director of the
center.
The teachers used this activ-
ity to teach colors. The children
used the colors of apples -
red, yellow and green when
painting, and they used apples
to make apple prints.
The children made neck-
laces out of Applejack cereal.
Red, yellow and green balls
were bounced around in the
middle of a parachute and the
children played hopscotch
with apple-shaped bean bags.
This was all part of the cen-
ter's Fun Friday. On Fun Fridays,
parents volunteer to assist with
a variety of activities with the
children.


The garage sale held by Habitat ReStore
and the Laurel Civic Association provided a
successful haul for Laurel and Ginger
Taylor.


Getting the message out to register to vote
is Lynne Remo, left, and Donna Cubit-
Swoyer.


Carolyn Mason, a candidate for
Sarasota County commissioner,
stopped to shop at the garage sale
during the Financial Fitness and
Housing Fair.


Jean Schexnayder and her grandson lan shop
at the garage sale at the Laurel Community
Center sponsored by Habitat for Humanity and
the Laurel Civic Association.


Greg Mallory is out for blood. Mallory is the
account executive for the Suncoast
Communities Blood Bank and was signing
up blood donors during the Financial
Fitness and Housing Fair held at the Laurel
Community Center.


Anila and Artan Qoshe help their daughters Livia
and Sarah choose a helmet provided by The Friends
of Legacy Trail.

Story is motivation for routine mammograms


tried to maintain a
healthy lifestyle. Since
e age of 40, she has had
an annual mammogram
and a yearly physical.
Last year, something
showed up on her mammo-
gram. She was 49 and sud-
denly was wondering if she
would make it to her 50th
birthday.
"I've always tried to take
care of myself," she said. "I
take care of my skin I
don't look 50."
She had a digital mammo-
gram to locate the area in
question, and the surgeon,
Dr. Joe Butler, then did a
biopsy.
Two days later, she
received the news that it
was cancer. Three days after
that, Dr. Butler did a
lumpectomy.


Jennifer
Wadsworth
Feeling Fit Editor


"I owe a lot
to Dr. Butler
and his staff,"
she explained.
"They make you feel like a
human being not just a
number. I was very glad I
had him as my surgeon."
Dr. Butler assured Titcomb
the cancer was caught early,
and that he was able to "get
it all."
"It was good," she said, "I
really didn't have time to
think, it was so fast."
She went to see Dr.
Christopher Lobo at Florida
Cancer Specialists to dis-
cuss the next step in her
treatment. Her fiance went
with her to appointments to


help her sort through all of
the information.
"My fiance asked ques-
tions and did the research.
He was great through the
whole thing," she said. "I
had a great support sys-
tem."
The plan was to undergo
radiation twice a day for a
week. She was scared
because she wasn't sure
what to expect from the
radiation, but she was
relieved that she wasn't
going to need chemothera-
py.
In June she had her six-
month checkup, and she
was relieved that everything
was clear. She said that
early detection is the key.
"Go for your full check up
every year get your yearly
mammogram," she said. "A
lot of women say it's


painful, but, those few sec-
onds of discomfort can save
your life."
Now, she says she looks at
life differently. She exercises
and tries to enjoy everyday.
"Mentally and physically,
I'm healthier now then I was
before I got sick," she said.
She also can't say enough
about her physicians.
"Dr. Butler treats everyone
wonderful," she said. "He
made me feel comfortable
- Dr. Lobo was just as won-
derful."
It is important to her to
share her story; she hopes it
may motivate women to go
in and get their yearly mam-
mogram.
"It's something you can
beat, but you have to stay
on top of it," she explained.
"It's better to be safe than
sorry."

Don't Bargain With Your Eyewear Needs


You get what you pay for. This familiar refrain applies to
many items we buy, including eyewear. While we all appre-
ciate a bargain, a good price should not be at the expense
of quality. As you shop for your next pair of eyeglasses, keep the
following valuable issues in mind.

Cheaper isn't always better.
Almost all prescription lenses are ground at an optical
laboratory. Laboratories vary in size from small operations
located inside a large retail optical store to huge corporations
with multiple locations nationwide that service hundreds of
optical retail offices.
Like most businesses, laboratories have many competi-
tors and are faced with the ever-rising costs of materials and
employees. Unfortunately, some may choose to cut costs in
areas that could directly affect your prescription eyewear.
Using old and poorly maintained equipment, for exam-
ple, can save money in the short-term. The downside for the
customer is that it can result in the prescriptions not being
ground with the proper power or quality, sometimes result-
ing in lens distortions.
When a power error or distortion defect occurs, the labora-
tory could remake the lenses and throw away the first pair at
great expense. Or, they could send the defective lenses to the
optical retailed and hope that a.) They don't inspect it or b.)
They pass it on to the eyewear consumer instead of returning
it to the laboratory for another pair.
Why would an optician or optical retailer give a patient
lenses that were not made correctly? The optical retailer's
staff may not have the skill or knowledge to inspect the lens-
es and find the error. Or, the retailer may have a financial
interest in or owns the laboratory. Remaking the lens, there-
fore, costs the retailer more money.
Finally, if the optical retailer is selling eyewear at extremely
discounted prices, they may be shopping laboratories for the
cheapest lenses they can get. They may be willing to accept


less-than-perfect lens quality. As a consumer, however, you
should not be.

No substitute for a State-licensed Optician.
Compromises in quality are not limited to materials. In an
effort to cut costs, optical retailers may compromise on their
staff's knowledge level, skill, training and licensing.
The absence of an experienced, State-licensed Optician can
be detrimental to the successful outcome of your eyewear.
Remember that eyewear is being designed. If the designer's
measurements are off or they lack the proper skill, the result
is inaccuracy of design. This is disturbing because you are
relying on them to check the design accuracy, as well as the
accuracy of the prescription as it has been ground on the
lenses by an optical laboratory.
With licensure you have a better chance of getting a quali-
ty result. Furthermore, if you receive a poor product and they
refuse to correct it, you have some recourse with the State.
I often see patients that have purchased poor quality eye-
wear, outdated technology and/or treatments. Others have
been fit incorrectly and the eyewear is actually causing them
problems. Unfortunately, most consumers don't have the
technical knowledge necessary to avoid these situations.

Here are some basic guidelines that can help
you obtain quality service and eyewear:
1. Don't view price as the most important factor in choosing
eyewear.
2. Ask if your lenses will be made at an independent optical
laboratory.
3. Trust your eyewear to be made at the same office you trusted
with your eye exam.
4. Always ask to see the optician's State Professional License.

Concerned that her sister has lost her spark


Dear Dr. Joan: My sister is
good at her job and has
been in her field for
about 10 years. But, I don't
think she's happy. She's exhaust-
ed all the time and the spark
seems gone from her. I'd like
her to have help of some sort,
but, I don't know what to do.
You sound like a compassion-
ate sister. You have noted a
change in your sister and are
concerned about what it
means. It may be that you have
become aware of this shift
before it was apparent to her.
Often, someone else is the first
to know.
However, there are many situ-
ations that could account for
these changes. How long has it
been since she has had a physi-
cal exam? That might be the
first place to begin. Suggesting
that someone see a doctor
sometimes has the expected
result. The person acts on the
advice and schedules an
appointment right away
Often this doesn't happen.
Most people believe they are
the best judge of what is good
for them. If she declines, know
that you did the right thing. It

DR. JOAN they need to
ASHKIN, EdD, germinate for

It appears
to you that the changes may be
connected with her job. They
may be. At times we fall into a
way of earning our living that
fits what we are cut out to do.
Employer and employee go on
to live happily ever after.
Other times, we train for
years, try it, and find it just
doesn't "feel right." And it has
only been during the last few
generations that we have had
the luxury of paying attention


to our feelings about our jobs.
Earlier in our history, if dad
was a carpenter his son was a
carpenter, too. No changes were
expected. Girls learned at
mom's elbow to peel potatoes
and do laundry. If mom was
employed outside the home,
the girls would have permission
to get a job as well.
In some families, there is an
unwritten rule that we do not
surpass our parents. If a man is
offered a place on the board of
directors, he can accept as long
as his dad was a member of the
board. This same thing happens
with college degrees, and busi-
ness successes and/or failures. It
can become an issue of family
loyalty although not often on
a conscious level.
Once, the only socially accept-
able employment for women,
was teacher or secretary. Your
sister may have taken job at a
time or place where there
weren't many open to women.

Many people experience a
"calling" in caring for plants,
being a gourmet cook, or, per-
haps working with animals.
These are not mainstream
choices, and often the idea is
ignored. Perhaps you could ask
your sister what she wanted to


be when she was nine years old.
Nine is an age before girls usu-
ally feel the restrictions of sexu-
al stereotypes. What a surprise if
she wished she could be an
electrician or plumber. And
with great freedom today, she
could work toward that.

Feeling the effects of chemotherapy


November 3, 2007 -
Chemotherapy Treatment

I began chemotherapy
treatments on Thursday,
October 18 (2007). The cur-
rent round is planned to be
8 weeks, to coincide with 7
weeks (35 treatments) of
radiation. My plan is to
have the treatments every
Friday. That way, if I am feel-
ing some side effects, I
would have the weekend to
recover before going back to
work the following Monday.
I am to get a variety of
drugs each week, as follows:
Aloxi (an anti-nausea
drug)
Decadron (a steroid,
anti-inflammatory;
enhances the body's
immune response)
Tagamet (for acid reflux)
Benadryl (an antihista-


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
I 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.


mine given to prevent a
potential allergic reaction to
Taxol)
Taxol (a cancer (antineo-
plastic) medication; it inter-
feres with the growth of can-
cer cells and slows their
growth and spread in the
body)
Potassium
Magnesium
Lasix (a diuretic given to
help reduce the amount of


water in the body it
works by acting on the kid-
neys to increase the flow of
urine)
Mannitol (to induce uri-
nation and prevent excess
body water)
Cisplatin (a platinum-
based drug known to inter-
fere with the growth and
spread of cancer cells)
The bags of potassium
and magnesium are to
counteract the effects the
Cisplatin has on reducing
these chemicals in the body
and to help "flush" the kid-
neys, which can be dam-
aged by Cisplatin.
It takes about 6 hours to


be fed the drugs via IV. I
show up at the cancer treat-
ment center around 9 a.m.
in the morning right after
my radiation treatment.
They first take blood for
testing, and if everything
looks OK, I am taken to the
treatment room to receive
the IV.
They have a solarium and
some comfortable lazy-boy
type chairs. A nurse will
hook me up with an IV and
set the drugs, which are
numbered, on a stand with
a pump. I can read a book
and listen to my iPod while
receiving treatment. I am
generally finished around 3
p.m.
I have been surprised at
how little I have had in the
way of side effects from
treatment so far. I was
expecting much worse. On
the first round of chemo I
only vomited one time, and
that was "not much"
because Yoko was feeding
me like a bird. I seem to get
tired more easily, but not
sleepy.

After the first treatment
we went to Houston to visit
with my mom and my sis-
ter Peggy.
I was tired and slept dur-
ing the day, but I was not
the exhausted tired that I
was expecting. I seem to
get feverish once in awhile,
but if I lie down and take a
short nap, I seem to recover
pretty well.
I have always been able
to sleep, but since the diag-
nosis, I sleep for an hour or
two and wake up, look at
the clock, and try to fall
asleep again. I am not sure
if this is the drugs or some-
thing psychological.
Maybe it is the stress and
worry about what is going
to happen. When I do
sleep, something always
seems to wake me. Most
nights it is heartburn or
acid reflux. Other nights it
is Yoko. Last night it was a
rash.

Virtual Colonoscopy not ready for prime time


By JOHN P. RIOUX, MD, FACS
A recent article in the
newspaper touted the bene-
fits of so-called virtual
colonoscopy. This procedure,
more correctly termed virtu-
al colography (indirectly
viewing a person's colon
using a CT scanner) has been
struggling to gain popularity
over the last few years as a
noninvasive way to rule out
colon cancer. After reading
the article, I'm unconvinced.
Over the last thirty years,
we've witnessed a surprising
drop in the rates of colon
cancer. This is not due to the
increase in fiber in our diet
or a decrease in fat in our
diet, both of which would
help decrease the incidence
of colon cancer. The drop is
simply related to the millions
of polyps that have been
removed by colonoscopies
over the same time period.
Polyps become cancers.
There's no mystery here. The
stages of polyp growth dur-
ing their ascension into can-
cer have been known for
decades. If you remove the
polyp, it will never grow up
to become a cancer and kill
somebody.
The shortcomings of virtu-
al colography are many. First
of all, you will not avoid the
bowel prep, undeniably the
most inconvenient aspect of
a colonoscopy. In fact, the
argument has been made
that even a better prep is
needed because X-rays can-
not always distinguish left-
over mashed potatoes from
polyps. The human eye along
with the magnification of the
colonoscope on a 25-inch
video monitor will.
What if a questionable
polyp is seen on virtual
colography? A colonoscopy
will be recommended, and
will likely need to be done
on a different day with a
repeat prep. GI docs and sur-


geons will not be able to be
on standby as cardiac sur-
geons are for heart caths.
You've just erased the cost
savings of the high definition
CT (if any) because any find-
ing on a virtual study will
lead to a standard
colonoscopy which is both
diagnostic and therapeutic.
A virtual study cannot
remove a real polyp.
One reason screening
colonoscopy has been so
widely accepted is that it is
performed under a light
anesthetic, a so-called "twi-
light sleep." During a virtual
colography, air is insufflated
into the colon to expand it.
There is no sedation. Flexible
sigmoidoscopies and barium
enemas have virtually been
abandoned as screening
tests, largely because of the
discomfort they cause. I pre-
dict the same fate for colog-
raphy. Recently a prominent
insurance company attempt-
ed to stop covering the anes-
thetic portion of
colonoscopy.


Following a brief and vocal
campaign from doctors,
employers and patients, the
threat was quickly with-
drawn. In 2008 it is simply
barbaric to expect people to
put up with pain in pursuit
of good health and longevity.
Let's talk cost. The article
quoted the cost of
colonoscopy to be around
$3,000. Despite the fact that
age 50 is recommended for
one's first colonoscopy, the
majority of colonoscopies
done in this area of the
country are for those over 65.
Medicare pays me $199.68
for a screening colonoscopy.
The anesthesiologist does a
bit better than me at $400,
and the outpatient surgical
facility that I use receives
$400.24 from Uncle Sam for
a total of $999.92.
A surgical colleague of
mine (who has since left
town and given up surgical
practice) had some plumb-
ing work done at his home,
which involved a fiber-optic
scope being inserted into his

bathroom pipes, which cost

He was fond of saying that
plumbers got more for scop-
ing toilets than we got for
scoping patients. I guess that
I'll have to admit that a well
functioning toilet does con-
tribute to public health.
There is no doubt that I
will be accused of having
motivated self-interest in
this editorial. I do. So do you.
My forty-eight-year-old sister
died of colon cancer, leaving
my 10-year-old niece moth-
erless. She died with her
head cradled in my eighty-
year-old parent's hands. This
disease affects friends, fami-


ly and loved ones of all ages.
Colon cancer could kill you.
It consumes millions of
health-care dollars annually.
Why on Earth would we
throw out over 30 years of
positive life-saving experi-
ence with a test widely
acknowledged to be the gold
standard for diagnosing
colon cancer and removing
precancerous polyps?

Port Charlotte
Relay for Life
Bring in the clowns, the circus
train for Port Charlotte Relay
for Life arrived on a recent
Wednesday evening at Port
Charlotte High School, rolling
out the annual event and the
theme for this year's program,
"The greatest cure on earth."
Hard work and attention to
retaining teams from past
events give the relay committee
a jumpstart with 33 initial
teams ready to embark on the
fund raising and community
involvement that characterizes
Relay for Life.
The kickoff meeting attendees
were treated to delicious and
spicy burritos provided by long
time supporter Moe's restaru-
ant, along with obligatory cir-
cus goodies, peanuts, cotton
candy and lots of enthusiasm
for the big show.
The real purpose of Relay for
Life and the funding it provides
was represented by Sandra
Varone-Chenard, who is a
recent cancer survivor and
whose voice and fortitude
inspired all in attendance.
Sandra shared her belief that
fighting cancer is another part
of life and not a tragic event.
Her experiences have led her to
make friends around the coun-
try and the world via the
Internet and to share concerns
and information with a vast
population who are now or
have experienced a battle with
cancer. Clearly Sandra is trans-
forming her words into action
since she is a mother of five
and working full time at Baker
Center.
The kickoff meeting also rec-
ognized many of Sandra's co-
survivors who give their ongo-
ing, enthusiastic support to
Relay for Life in raising money
for the cure we all seek.
The Relay for Life kickoff
meeting is just the beginning of
fund raising season. There are
many opportunities for our citi-
zens to be involved by starting

Murdock Family
Medicine honors
volunteers
Murdock Family Medicine's
family of volunteers has always
been part of the "heart" of the
company. These fine people
truly represent what Murdock
Family Medicine is all about -
helping the community, giving
back, being part of a group of
caring people that will do what-
ever it takes to make a differ-
ence to all those who enter the
doors and to many who can't
make it to those doors.
They set the bar high for
MFM's 100+ employees by
demonstrating their caring atti-
tude throughout the company.
When called upon, they are
always there with a smile on
their face and a "what can I do
to help" attitude.
Portofino's fine Tuscany room
was the venue for this year's
Annual Volunteer Luncheon.
Administrator Bob Bray and
Drs. Dana Planer, Melody Burt
and Donald Kennedy took time
out of their busy schedules to
honor these awesome folks for
their continued support of
Murdock Family Medicine.
Each volunteer was presented
with a Certificate of
Appreciation honoring her
hours of service and commit-
ment to the company along
with a tote bag, movie tickets,
and gift cards. When asked why
they come back year after year,
they respond, "because we're
treated like Family here".
MFM's family of volunteers is
strong and still growing. If you
would like to become a mem-
ber of the volunteer family,
contact volunteer coordinator
Wilma Ramsey at 941-255-
3535.
Murdock Family Medicine
offers 9 Board Certified physi-
cians, a full Laboratory, Xray,

Punta Gorda
Chamber Business
of the Year
The Yoga Sanctuary received
the 2008 Punta Gorda Chamber
Business of the Year Award.
According to John Wright,
President of the Punta Gorda
Chamber of Commerce,
"Bonnie Yonker took her pas-
sion for yoga and created a
whole new business sector in
Punta Gorda this year. Her
omni-presence, her drive, and
enthusiasm has lifted the spirits
(literally) of a whole new cus-
tomer base in our city."
This award was received at the
Chamber's Annual awards din-
ner at the Isles Yacht Club on
September 19, 2008.
"An award like this really
reflects the cooperation and
support of the great local busi-
nesses that is essential to our
collective success," Yonker says.


TideWell
honors support
groups
We live in challenging times,
and no one knows this better
than the men and women who
serve at military installations
around the world. They bravely
risk their lives for our country
each and every day on the
ground, at sea and in the air.
Behind many servicemembers
stand loved ones who support
their soldiers and military per-
sonnel by dealing with the rou-
tine of daily life raising chil-
dren, caring for other family
members, etc. A tour of duty
may last months or years,
depending on the location,
with brief visits home.
This lifestyle can place a strain
on everyone who is trying to
cope with separation. When
servicemembers retire or are
discharged from the military,
they assume therole of veteran.
There may be physical and
emotional challenges facing
veterans who have suffered
injuries and disabilities while
on active duty. Losing fellow


servicemembers can create
intense feelings of grief and
loss. When veterans return
home, family members face the
challenge of helping their loved
ones adjust to these kinds of
losses, while they also adjust
themselves to the changes they
see in their veterans. Loved
ones also experience grief and
loss when their servicemember
dies on active duty or from a
long term illness.
In honor of the men and
women who now serve, or pre-
viously served, so valiantly in
the U.S. military, the bereave-
ment department of TideWell
Hospice and Palliative Care has
created TideWell HONORS
Support Groups to provide
emotional support to the fami-
lies of our veterans.
These specialized groups
include:
* Families serving as care-
givers to veterans who are liv-
ing at home, in a hospital, a
long term care or assisted living
facility.
* Families who have lost an


active servicemember or veter-
an.
* Families of servicemembers
who are on active duty and
serving away from home.
* The groups are facilitated by
TideWell Grief Specialist Dr.
Michele Gordin. She brings a
unique perspective as the
widow of a U.S. Navy veteran
who served in the Vietnam War
and retired with a service-relat-
ed disability.
Michele raised four children
while stationed in Scotland,
Virginia and Connecticut. She
worked at the U.S. Naval
Hospital in New London,
Conn., for five years while fur-
thering her education and is a
licensed Marriage and Family
Therapist with a doctorate of
education in Counseling
Psychology.
The support groups are
offered free of charge and are
available to everyone. For more
information on dates, times
and locations for any of the
groups, please call Michele at

Doctor finds niche in under-served area


By DANA SANCHEZ
ASSISTANT ENGLEWOOD EDITOR
ARCADIA Before she ever
cracked a book in medical
school, Kiersa Durfee did
missionary work at a north-
ern India hospital. There, in
the town of Raxaul near the
India-Nepal border, she saw
women suffer without repro-
ductive choices, without birth
control and without a say
over how many children they
had.
The experience, she said,
made her fall in love with the
field of obstetrics.
Thirteen years later and
comfortably set up in a newly


"I've always

envisioned

being in

a town where

I deliver a lot

of the babies

and I know

the people

and I

understand

what their

lives are like

because I live

with them."
Kiersa Durfee


remodeled office at DeSoto
Memorial Hospital in Arcadia,
Durfee, 33, now an OB-GYN,
has just been hired to partner
in the hospital's Center for
Family Health.
It was not financial need
but her experience in India
which played a vital role in
securing a coveted National
Health Service Corps scholar-
ship, she said. The scholar-
ship paid most of Durfee's
medical school tuition.
Medical students can easily
accumulate $250,000 in debt.
Imagine having that debt
magically erased in exchange
for a promise. Actor Michael
J. Fox popularized the con-
cept in the 1991 movie "Doc
Hollywood." The TV series
"Northern Exposure" also
added glitz.
Since 1972, the corps has
paid off student loans for a
select group of applicants in
exchange for the promise that
they work in an underserved
area after graduating for a set
period. In Durfee's case: three
years.
More than half of the corps'
doctors integrate into their
communities and end up
staying after their commit-
ment is over, according to
David Bowman, spokesper-
son for Health Resources and
Services Administration, the
umbrella agency for the
National Health Service Corps
in Rockville, Md.
Durfee was given tuition
fees and a monthly stipend
while in medical school. She
paid out of pocket only for
her first year's tuition -
$60,000.
In 2007, just 10 percent of
1,345 applicants 113 -
were awarded scholarships,
Bowman said.
The same year, the odds
were better in the corp's loan
repayment program, which
pays off loans for medical stu-

Kiersa Durfee was recruited by hospital CEO Vince Sica to work as an OB-GYN at DeSoto Memorial
Hospital. As a National Health Service Corps scholar, Durfee had her medical school tuition paid off in
exchange for a promise to work in Arcadia, considered an under-served area.


dents after graduation. Of
1,791 applications, almost
half 899 received
awards.
The program received $123
million in 2008 from
Congress.
The corps uses a formula
based on number of doctors
per capita to come up with a
score for underserved areas.
These include innercity hos-
pitals, frontier areas in far-
flung parts of Alaska, Indian
reservations and small towns
like Arcadia.
The greater the need, the
higher the score. Based on the
terms of her scholarship,


Durfee had to serve in a place
which scored a 14 or higher.
Arcadia scored a 16.
Arcadia has about 85 doc-
tors serving 10,000 people,
according to Sperling's Best
Places, a Web site which
tracks quality of life data. The
national average is 170,
according to the Web site. By
comparison, North Port,
Englewood and Venice have
300 doctors or more per
10,000 people, while Port
Charlotte and Punta Gorda
have about 215.
After meeting DeSoto
Memorial Hospital CEO Vince
Sica at a job fair in Tampa,


Durfee did a little research
and quickly decided that
Arcadia was just the place
she'd like to raise her two chil-
dren, born while she was in
medical school.
Durfee grew up in Fort
Wayne, Ind., attended Indiana
University School of Medicine
and did her residency at Good
Samaritan Hospital in
Phoenix. She is married to
Kevin Durfee, a musician,
teacher and stay-at-home
dad.
"We were looking for a
small town to raise our chil-
dren, a safe place for them to

more in Arcadia than some of
her colleagues who stayed on
in Phoenix.
The average salary for a
new OB-GYN is $250,000,
Durfee said. The market
pays $150,000 to $350,000.
"Rural areas know that to
attract doctors, they need to
be at the average," Durfee
said. "Everyone wants to live
in a big city so there's more
competition. They know that
in a bigger market, they
don't have to pay as much."
Pam Ames is thrilled that
Arcadia, where she was born
and raised, has a new OB-
GYN. Ames had to travel to
Punta Gorda 90 minutes
round trip to see a doctor
after her long-time OB-GYN
closed his private practice.
"I like to shop local," Ames
said. "It was aggravating
having to take a day off to go
out of town."
At least Ames, who owns a
gift and basket shop called
The Peddler's Boutique, can
take a day off whenever she
likes. She's the boss.
This is probably not true
for the majority of women in
the rural area, Ames said.
"A lot of people here in
Arcadia have jobs that if you
don't work, you don't get
paid. It's nice to know that
there's someone here and
she's so well trained. I get a
feeling of confidence from
her," Ames said.
Sica can speak to Durfee's
qualifications. He said he
saved a bundle by recruiting
Durfee himself, cutting out
the middle man in this
case, a recruiter who can
charge a $30,000 commis-
sion for finding and placing
a doctor.
Sica was impressed with
Durfee's experience, "In her
residency program, she
delivered seven sets of
quadruplets, 21 sets of
triplets and she lost count of
the number of twins," he
said.
Some of Arcadia's larger
employers include Florida


Civil Commitment Center,
Wal-Mart distribution cen-
ter, DeSoto Correctional
Institution and the School
Board.
"They do offer insurance,
but more do not," Ames
said.
Arcadia's citrus and agri-
culture support a large
migrant population.
Durfee realized in medical
school that she didn't have
to go out of the country to
help people the way she
wanted to. About half her
patients in her new practice
have no medical insurance.
"I knew that I would never
do anything related to Botox
and plastic surgery," she
said. "There's such a dispari-
ty happening in this country
between people who have
insurance and those who
don't. I wanted to be in an
area where people needed it
the most."
At Durfee's disposal is a
new sonogram machine and
in the hospital, equipment
more state-of-the-art than
anything she's seen in teach-
ing hospitals, she said.
"There is a misconception
for a lot of physicians that
they may be serving in very
primitive conditions,"
Bowman said. "A lot of rural
areas embrace new technol-
ogy."
Sica has lived in Arcadia
since 1994. He worked as an
attorney and served on the
hospital board before
becoming interim CEO. The
job became permanent in
early 2007.
"I think concept of the
Service Corps is marvelous,"
Sica said. "It's probably the
best government program
going. The cost of going to
medical school is just
incredible. It's shocking.
This provides the means for
some people that are
deserving to get into med-
ical school and then provide
a service to the community."

Helping our community bridge the gap between
smart nutrition and modern medicine

Alternative medicine takes on statins


Many patients reluctant to
take prescription cholesterol
medications seek natural
alternatives. A Mayo Clinic
study published in July set out
to compare the lipid-lowering
effects of an alternative regi-
men with a standard dose of
prescription cholesterol med-
icine. Two groups were fol-


lowed for 12 weeks. Both
groups contained people with
high cholesterol and cardiac
risk factors but no known
heart disease. At the end of
the study, researchers con-
cluded that the alternative
regimen was just as effective
as the statin in lowering bad
cholesterol.
