Channel surfing
Verizon FiOS recently changed most of its
channel listings but did not communicate
the changes to us for inclusion in TV Times.
We are working with FYI, which provides us
the listings for TVTimes, to update the
channel numbers as quickly as possible.
Because FYI is dealing with this issue on a
nationwide basis, and because TVTimes is
printed well in advance of the date it's
inserted into the paper, it may be two
weeks before the changes are made. Thank
you for your patience in the meantime.


Campaign budgets mirror hard times


Council candidates dig into their own pockets to
finance their campaigns.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Like the policy platforms
they're running on, the ap-
proach to fundraising by this
year's candidates in the Venice
City Council race is unique.
The source of funds by candi-
dates for Seat No. 2 Emilio
Carlesimo, Kit McKeon and John
Osmulski gives some insight
into their support base.
According to reports submit-


ted by the candidates to the
Florida Division of Elections,
Osmulski is this year's most fru-
gal candidate. He arguably leads
in name recognition, having vol-
unteered for 30 years in the
community, with eight years on
the city planning commission,
but is spending the least.
His shoestring campaign
budget shows he raised only
$800 as of two weeks ago, includ-
ing a $300 loan to himself and
two other contributions. In the


past two weeks, however, he
gained seven more contribu-
tions for $1,600, bringing total
contributions to date to $2,550.
He had spent only $476 as of
Oct. 10.


His two largest
contributors
were Advanced
Asphalt of South-
west Florida and
Kyle Ward at $500
each.
More money
Osmulski McKeon is this
year's big spend-
er. He's lived in Venice for four
years, and worked on last year's
winning council campaign
races. He raised $10,505. Almost
half of that $5,000 is a per-
sonal loan with another $1,000


in contributions from family
members, leaving about $4,505
raised from 34 other contribu-
tors. He spent $7,727.
He also got $500 contribu-
tions from David Griffin of
Nashville, Robert Burrus of
Sorrento Ranches Homeowners
Association and Inova Research
Corp. Marshall Happer of the
Venetian Golf & River Club
Homeowners Association and
five others each contributed
$200 or $250.

'Sunshine' attorney


targets North Port


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


The lawsuit over alleged
Sunshine Law violations cost the
city of Venice much in time -
and legal fees. And it may be
spilling over into North Port.
The law firm of Sarasota
attorney Andrea Flynn Mogen-
sen made a public records
request for all documents relat-
ed to the selection of the compa-
ny that audited North Port's
financial statements.
The records request was sent
by Mogensen's legal consultant,
Michael Barfield, to Terri Gould,
North Port finance director, and
City Attorney Rob Robinson.
It covers requests for propos-
als, communications, e-mails to
or from selection committee
members, minutes, public no-
tices and calendar entries for
2008 of all members of the selec-
tion committee.
Robinson was on vacation
this week and could not be
reached.
Mogensen made the request
on behalf of North Port resident
Andy Hawkinson, a frequent
critic of North Port City Hall. She
said the request has "no connec-
tion whatsoever to any litigation
inVenice."
"We are not taking the posi-
tion that the city of North Port or
any of its boards or committees


have violated the Sunshine
Law," Mogensen said. "We are
simply making a public records
request and reviewing the docu-
ments at the request of our
client."
Assistant City Manager Dan-
ny Schult said despite being
exempt from the city's procure-
ment code, the auditor selection
was handled through a request
for proposal. An RFP is a process
used by businesses and govern-
ments to encourage vendors to
submit competitive proposals
for equipment and services.
The selection committee
meeting was public and notice
was given, he said.
It's not clear whether state law
requires that such meetings be
advertised or even if they are
subject to the Sunshine Law.
"The law requires reasonable
notice for such meetings," said
Adria Harper, director of the
First Amendment Foundation.
"But it's not always very clear as
to what types of committees are
governed by the Sunshine Law. If
they are making recommenda-
tions for a board doing some-
thing that the board might do
itself then they are governed
by the Sunshine Law."
Otherwise, however, they are
a fact-finding committee not
governed by the law.

Homeless by design

Mayor Ed Martin greets Kim Denmark on U.S. 41 Bypass. Denmark is walking the country to highlight home-
lessness and poverty.


An Ohio businesswoman who gave up everything to
help save those less fortunate makes her way to
Venice.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Alone, without any support,
Kim Denmark prepared to walk
her usual 10 miles a day carry-
ing a large U.S. flag and wearing
a sandwich board.
On the front it reads "Kim is
walking across America." On
the back, "Homeless, poverty,
welfare reform."
Sweating and tired, she sat
down against a guardrail on a
hot Friday afternoon just south
of the Frosted Mug restaurant in
South Venice before moving
north.
"I don't carry water. It's too
heavy," Denmark said. "People


come out and sometimes offer
me a drink. They want to talk.
They want to know what I'm
doing."
"I meet all kinds of people.
They tell me their stories," she
said. "I just met a homeless man
right here in Venice. He was a
vet."
Hours earlier Denmark said
she met an affluent woman who
just went into foreclosure.
Her husband was "higher
up," she said, referring to his
economic status. "They never
thought it could happen to
them."
"I've met 80-year-olds who
are taking a part-time job just to
pay their medical," she said. "I


met a 19-year-old with her 1-
day-old baby in a homeless
shelter. Can you imagine that?
This is what I hear and see. And
this has been going for 78
months."
They swap stories, perhaps
say a short prayer, and she
moves on.
Storied
Denmark, who began in the
Midwest then toured the
Northeast, is now traveling the
South. Her walk through
Florida began in Tallahassee
and took her on to Jacksonville,
down to Miami, across Alligator
Alley (where she called state
troopers twice after alligators
swarmed the road during a
wildfire) and back up to Naples
before arriving in Venice this

Theft crimes rise in slow economy


BY TERRY O'CONNOR
STAFF WRITER


Murder is down but rape, rob-
bery and burglaries are up in
Sarasota County through the
first eight months of 2008.
The big jump is in burglaries,
with 12.5 percent more occur-
ring through August this year in
Sarasota County. Lt. Chuck
Lesaltato of the Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office said the slow
economy plays a big role in


spurring such a brazen crime.
"Any time you get into a situa-
tion like this where people lose
their jobs, you will see this,"
Lesaltato said. "Desperate peo-
ple do desperate things."
And normal people do dumb
things like leaving cars and
homes unlocked, he said. That
contributed to the 1,428 homes
and cars broken into through
August compared with 1,270
through the same time last year,
he said.


"People leave valuables in
their cars, and leave change visi-
ble, and people break in to take
these items," he said.
The best and simplest -
safeguard is to lock your home,
Lesaltato said.
"Most burglaries are commit-
ted through an unlocked win-
dow," he said. "If a burglar
checks your windows and finds
them locked, odds are he'll move

LITTLE KNOWN FAMOUS FLORIDIANS
BY JO "FASTHORSE" HARRILL














GEN. ROY GEIGER was the most influential aviator
in the history of the U.S. Marine Corps. With an
advanced education in air, ground and sea power,
he was a master of the three dimensions of war in
the 20th century. Roy was born at Middleburg, Fla.,
in 1885 and his father died in 1892. Roy graduated
from law school in 1907 and enlisted as a private in
the Marine Corps. In 1909 he earned a commission
and served in various billets until he was ordered
to report to Pensacola for flight training in 1916. Lt.
Geiger became the fifth designated Marine aviator
and flew combat sorties in World War I, earning his
first Navy Cross. At the outbreak World War II he
flew combat missions at Guadalcanal in 1942, earn-
ing his second Navy Cross. He returned to the field
in 1943 commanding the Third Amphibious Corps
at Bougainville, Guam, Peleliu and Okinawa. It was
at Okinawa that the general distinguished himself
by becoming the only Marine ever to command a
field army. He died in 1947 and was promoted to
four-star rank posthumously.

Lee murder suspect gets trial delay


BY TERRY O'CONNOR
STAFF WRITER

Michael King, the pri-
mary suspect in the Jan. 17
abduction and murder of
21-year-old Denise Amber
Lee of North Port, will have
four more
months to
prepare his
defense.
The state
is seeking
the death
penalty for
the 37-
year-old
King King, who
was to go
on trial Nov. 10. But 12th
Circuit Court Judge Deno
Economou granted a de-
fense motion for more
time to prepare and set a
new trial date of March 30,
2009.
Nathan Lee, husband of
the murder victim, said he
was not surprised by the
trial delay.
"Obviously I'm frustrat-
ed, but I know that's the
way the system works," he
said Wednesday.
Carolyn Schlemmer,
lead defense counsel, said
Wednesday she was un-
able to even start working
on King's defense until she
had concluded involve-
ment in another murder
case in April. King's de-
fense is also complicated
by a long witness list.
"This is a capital case,
which requires much
more preparation and
time than normal felony
cases," Schlemmer said.
"Counsel has much more
to do, including additional
motions, in order to ade-
quately represent the
defendant."
Schlemmer said she's
already conducted 21 dep-
ositions in venues includ-
ing Sarasota, North Port,
Fort Myers, Tampa, Deer-
field Beach and Quantico,


Va. The state lists 94 wit-
nesses she could possibly
depose.
"Discovery is extremely
voluminous," Schlemmer
said.
King, an unemployed
plumber from North Port,
pleaded not guilty to charg-
es he raped and murdered
Lee after a Feb. 6 indict-
ment.
Schlemmer also said
the case has drawn na-
tional media attention
because of the botched 9-
1-1 calls involved.
Suit coming
A screaming Denise
Amber Lee was last seen
when a witness reported
someone slapping the
back window of a Camaro
and screaming. The wo-
man called Charlotte
County's 9-1-1 center, but
the call was not conveyed
to police just blocks away
searching for Lee.
Four calls altogether,
including one from Denise
Lee herself, were placed to
9-1-1 operators about the
kidnapping and sightings
of the victim. Lee's body
was found about 5 miles
from where the 9-1-1
caller saw her struggling at
U.S. 41 and Toledo Blade
Boulevard.
Lee said he intends to
sue the Charlotte County
Sheriff's Office for negli-
gence leading to his wife's
death. The date the suit
will be filed will be deter-


mined by his attorney, he
said.
The Florida Legislature
passed the Denise Amber
Lee Act in the spring to
create statewide standards
for the training and certifi-
cation of 9-1-1 operators.
But lawmakers stopped
short of making training
mandatory, saying the
state does not have the
money for it.
The bill calls for a mini-
mum of 208 hours of train-
ing actually less than
what CCSO dispatchers
already receive. It directs
the state Department of
Health to come up with a
set of competency stan-
dards. Dispatchers with
five or more years of expe-
rience will be exempt.
Lee said not enough is
being done to fix the 9-1-1
system. Many law enforce-
ment agencies claim there
isn't enough money for
adequate training. Lee,
along with friends and vol-
unteers, established the
Denise Amber Lee Foun-
dation to create awareness
and eventually open a
local 9-1-1 training center.
The next fundraiser for
the Denise Amber Lee
Foundation is a golf tour-
nament to be held Sat-
urday at Bobcat Trail. For

EDITOR GREG GILES

The Bridges
rezone ready
The Bridges project, on
hold while Venice City
Council members worked
through a major rewrite of
the city's comprehensive
plan, is coming back
before the planning com-
mission on Tuesday, Oct.
31 at 1:30 p.m.
The Bridges, a pro-
posed North Venice
mixed-use community
being developed by Gulf
Coast Community Foun-
dation of Venice, needs
rezoning from the coun-
ty's "open-use rural" zon-
ing designation to the
city's "commercial mixed-
use" zoning designation.
The 146-acre parcel,
located east of Interstate
75 between Laurel and
Boarder roads, is slated
for a mix of housing types,
like single-family de-
tached homes with small
front yards allowing
porches to encourage
neighborhood conversa-
tion; townhouses; multi-
family apartments and
condos; live-work artist
units and accessory units;
as well as commercial
centers at both ends of
the development.
Early warning on
downtown parking
With consideration for


downtown merchants
during this economic
downturn, Venice City
Council agreed Oct. 15 to
wait until January to
restrict parking hours in
the downtown parking
lots.
At the suggestion of
Interim City Manager
Nancy Woodley, who
worked withVenice Main-
Street and the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce,
from Jan. 1-April 1 park-
ing in Centennial Park
and Miami Avenue park-
ing lots will have new
hours.
Parking in the Cen-
tennial Park parking lot
will be limited to five
hours.
The Miami Avenue
public parking lot will
have a two-hour parking
limit.
Parking on the down-
town streets remains lim-
ited to two hours year-
round.
Many downtown mer-
chants have taken
the MainStreet Parking
Pledge, promising they
and their employees will
park in outlying areas
such as the parking lots
on the south side of
Miami Avenue and be-
hind the Venice Theatre
during the day in order to
keep parking places clos-
er to stores and restau-
rants available for cus-
tomers.
Venice police will begin


enforcing the seasonal
parking limits when the
signs are posted in Jan-
uary.
Council action
Venice City Council
took the following actions
at its regular meeting held
Oct. 14:
Approved the mayor's
recommendation to reap-
point John Holic to the
Police Pension Board to
serve a three-year term.
Reached consensus
to schedule a shade meet-
ing during the Oct. 28 reg-
ular meeting regarding
Lorenzo v. City of Venice.
Agreed to hold a spe-
cial meeting Nov. 10 at
1:30 p.m. for the City of
Venice vs. Venice Pier
Group settlement propos-
al. It is expected to last
about three hours and will
be held in council cham-
bers.
Authorized the city to
write off past due ac-
counts as presented on
the finance director's re-
port of Oct. 2. About
$26,000 was written off,
much of it in overdue
accounts of companies
or individuals that filed
bankruptcy, went out of
business or moved out of
the area.
Authorized the city to
execute a contract with
Dr. Michael Baer for ser-
vices to be provided for
the Employee Assistance
Program.

Unclear
The advisory board Har-
per spoke about is not
unlike the several dozen
boards that meet each
month in North Port City
Hall.
It's unclear whether the
selection committee was
an advisory board or a fact-
finding committee. That
type of question often must
be answered by a judge.
The selection commit-
tee consisted of Marquett
Becker, finance; Jody
Poling, finance; Lisa Smith,
purchasing; and Robert
Estrada, North Port police.
It met June 4, 2007,
before recommending to
the city commission that it
hire CPA Associates of
Bradenton.
That firm was hired in
July 2007 to audit the city's
financial statements for fis-
cal year 2006-07.
A representative of the
firm made a presentation
to North Port city commis-
sioners in August 2008.
Meanwhile, Mogensen
filed a lawsuit against the
city of Venice, Mayor Ed
Martin and council mem-
bers Sue Lang, John Moore
and John Simmonds and
others in May alleging
Sunshine Law violations
related to meetings Venice
officials held without pub-
lic advertisement.
Mogensen filed a mo-
tion earlier this month
alleging more Sunshine
Law violations against Ven-
ice city staff for privately
short-listing candidates for


open city manager and air-
port consultant positions.
The city ofVenice agreed
to redo those committee
meetings in public.
Too soon to say
Mogensen filed the suit
in the 12th Circuit Court on
behalf of Sarasota resident
Anthony Lorenzo, who al-
leged 12 counts of failing to
provide reasonable notice
to the public of a meeting
and other violations. One
refers to an e-mail sent
Dec. 27 by Lang to a citizen
responding to another
council member's com-
ments on the airport layout
plan.
E-mails sent between
council members can be a
violation of the Sunshine
Law, since discussion of an
issue likely to come before
the body is prohibited
unless it takes place during
an open meeting with
proper notification.
The most serious allega-
tions accuse Lang of using
go-betweens to circumvent
the Sunshine Law.
Venice City Council
members learned Tuesday
that Mogensen/Lorenzo
rejected the city offer of
$50,000 for attorney fees
and costs plus non-
monetary issues-to settle
the lawsuit.
The Sunshine Law was
originally enacted by state
legislators in 1967 to pro-
vide a "right of access to
governmental meetings
and protects the public
from 'closed door' decision
making," according to the
state Council for Education

further study by the attor-
ney Andrea Mogensen in
the ongoing Sunshine law-
suit against some mem-
bers of city council.
Carlesimo's candidacy
is backed by the local
Venice firefighters' union.
He's a longtime resident
but relatively new to local
politics.
He raised $6,520, and
spent $5,620 as of Oct. 10.
The contributions include
a $2,500 loan and a $100
donation to himself. Early


on most of his 26 contri-
butions were from fire
fighters. In the last two
weeks they are coming
from other residents.
His largest contribu-
tions were from three fire-
fighter unions contribut-
ing a total of $1,500. They
are the Local Union 2546
FireFighters & Paramedics,
Indian River County Fire-
Fighters, and the statewide

The Public Records Law
enacted in 1909 creates a
right of access to records
made or received.
"We take such violations
seriously," North Port City
Manager Steve Crowell
said. "We have not been
advised previously about
any concerns about viola-
tions related to selection of
the current auditor or our
prior auditor, other than
previous concerns by a citi-
zen. We're responding
accordingly."
North Port City Clerk
Helen Raimbeau said her
office is still working
on Mogensen's extensive


request.
Mogensen said many
people have called her
office- from as far away as
Colorado since the
Lorenzo suit was filed.
"People are saying it's
high time" someone look
into violations of open-
meetings laws, she said.
At the same time, she
says, "It's premature to say
(the North Port situation) is
going to turn into another
Lorenzo v. Venice."

weekend.
Her milestones: 3,680
miles walked in 16 states.
Thirty pounds lost.
On her 21st pair of
sneakers, she is adamant
about her mission.
"Welfare needs to be re-
formed," she said. "Jobs.
They need to become self
sufficient."
Those more fortunate,
she said, can "help the
homeless ... take on
responsibility. It's mental
health ..." that needs to be
addressed, she said.
Her destination this
evening was about mid-
way up U.S. 41 Venice
Bypass. Each time she
stops, she ties a ribbon to a
street sign marking where
she will begin her trek the
next day.
She accepts a book of
Bible verse from an em-
ployee at the Venice Nissan
dealership and grabs a ride


SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A


from a good Samaritan
back to her security van.
She plans to stay the night
in Siesta Key courtesy of a
well-wisher, then return to
Venice to continue her
journey.
This day she walked
alone but spoke regularly
with friends by cell phone.
Usually she has two
friends nearby, one follow-
ing her in the security van,
one by her side.
"People aren't always as
nice as they are around
here," she said.
Epiphany
Denmark began her
walk almost seven years
ago in Ohio. A few years
earlier she began her own
temporary-employment
agency, specializing in cer-
tified nurse's assistants. By
her own account she was
well off but not happy and
not very nice to others.
Following a mysterious
illness that almost killed


her, Denmark contem-
plated suicide.
In her darkest hour she
had a vision. She calls it an
epiphany her first-ever
experience with God, she
said. He showed her what
her "true self" looked like:
selfish, unkind and head-
ed for hell.
Denmark said she did-
n't know quite how to han-
dle the experience. But a
verse from Luke stuck with
her: "God said ... walk."
When she recovered,
Denmark announced her
intention to walk across
America to highlight home-
lessness. One cold night in
Dayton, she recalled, news
cameras gathered around
her home on a wintery
evening expecting Den-
mark to cancel the begin-
ning of what was to be-
come her calling.
Somehow, she said, she
began walking in the
snow, tears pouring down
her face, until finally a


woman saw her orange
sign and offered shelter for
the evening.
It's been that way ever
since, she said.
Meet the mayor
On Friday, Denmark
walked from Taylor Ranch
Elementary School into
Venice, along the way
making acquaintances,
exchanging phone num-
bers, acknowledging the
automobiles that honked
in support.
She eventually ran into
Venice Mayor Ed Martin,
who was getting his car
fixed at the Nissan dealer-
ship.
"What you are doing is
going to make a differ-
ence," Martin said, telling
her that she's bringing
attention to opportunities
for people who don't know
where to go for help.
"I'm really happy to see
you," he said. "I wish you
luck in your travels."

Traffic advisory
Venice Public Works crews are getting
ready to light up the downtown for the
holidays. Work starts about two months
in advance of the holiday parade, which
takes place Saturday, Nov. 29.
Crews will be working along West
Venice, West Tampa and West Miami
avenues to put lighting in trees and place
other decorations.
The sidewalk project along East Miami
Avenue continues and may intermittent-
ly interrupt traffic flow for the next two
weeks. Other paving work near the alleys
off of Nokomis Avenue, behind Miami
and Tampa avenues will take place the
week of Oct. 27.
Sarasota County is working on a utility
relocation in the area of Knights Trail
Road and Laurel Road in preparation for
an intersection improvement project,
which will include adding a traffic signal,
turn lanes, bicycle lanes and sidewalks.
Watch for reduced speed limits and traffic
congestion in this area. The project is
expected to be complete in fall 2009.

Thieves are stealing more
of everything except cars,
said Lesaltato. Car thieves
drove away with just 285 hot
vehicles through August
compared with 349 stolen
through August 2007 a
decrease of more than 18
percent.
Monthly drunken-dri-
ving checkpoints through-
out the county, particularly
in North Port, Venice and
Sarasota, helped push
arrests for driving under the
influence to 344 through
August, a 13-percent boost
compared with 305 in the
same period last year.
"We're doing a check-
point a month now so I think
that has something to do
with it," he said.
There were only six mur-
ders in Sarasota County
through August compared
with 10 through the same
time last year, which ended
with a fatal flourish at 21
murders total. If the present
pace holds through the rest
of the year, just nine murders
will be committed in 2008.

How to become a Habitat homeowner


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Often people looking
for affordable housing
don't think to call Habitat
For Humanity.
"We want to hear from
people who are looking for
a modest, well-built, afford-
able home through part-
nership with Habitat For
Humanity," said Yvonne
Heckler, co-director of fam-
ily services. "Let us deter-
mine if you qualify."
The first step in the
qualification process is to
call Habitat For Humanity
of South Sarasota County,
493-6606, for informa-
tion and to answer some
questions.
Heckler will want to
know if you've lived in the
South County area for at
least a year and if your
income is from employ-
ment as opposed to
some other source, such as
disability payments. She'll
want proof of employment
for six months.
You'll also be asked
about your family size and
approximate income. To
qualify for a Habitat house,
a family must fit into 30 to
80 percent of the area's
median income depend-
ing on family size.
In the initial phone
conversation, Heckler also
will want to know how
willing you are to partner
with Habitat. A down pay-
ment of $1,750 is required,
as are 300 hours of "sweat
equity" actual work on
a Habitat house, and not
necessarily the one you
might get.
She will ask about your
current living conditions

to determine need.
"It could be the family is
living in substandard hous-
ing, overcrowded condi-
tions, doesn't qualify for a
conventional mortgage or
they are currently living
in subsidized housing,"
Heckler said.
The application
Based on the answers
to those questions, the
family is invited to fill out
an application also listing
all of their expenses.
On that visit, Heckler
talks more with the family
about the down-payment


and sweat-equity require-
ments and explains that
getting into a Habitat
home usually takes a little
more than a year.
Then Habitat runs a
credit check on the family.
"We look at every-
thing," Heckler said. "We
consider medical issues
on the report, but we aren't
as concerned about those
because we realize that
can happen to anyone.
"We pay very close
attention if there are a lot
of Verizon or FPL bills that
haven't been paid because
our families are going to

l/.


have to pay those things
when they get into a
Habitat home."
Potential Habitat owners
have to attend a Goodwill
Homebuyers workshop for
one day and meet with a
credit counselor.
"This is at no cost to
them, and they can go
more than once to the
credit counselor," Heckler
said. "The counselor helps
them make an action plan
to clean up their credit
report."
Habitat families can
work on repairing their
credit throughout the
home-buying process.
"However, if they have
huge debt, we are going
to disqualify them until
they can clean it up,"
Heckler said. "Our fami-
lies have to have work-
able credit issues."
Next steps
Once Heckler has
reviewed the application,
it goes to the family selec-
tion committee, which
meets monthly. Then two
people from the commit-
tee visit the family in their
home and then report
back to the full committee.
If the committee ap-
proves the family, the appli-


cation packet goes to the
South County Habitat for
Humanity board of direc-
tors for a final decision.
Once the board of
directors has approved a
family, they are assigned a
Habitat sponsor who will
work with them through
the process of buying their
home, and the family signs
the partnership papers.
Then the families begin

working with Beth Ferris,
co-director of family ser-
vices. She sets them up to

nance. She also helps
them figure out how they
are going to get their sweat
equity hours in.

OUR VIEW



Ford-Coates for county tax collector


I t's a bit of a mystery why Barbara
Ford-Coates is facing opposition
this year in her bid to be re-elected
tax collector in Sarasota County.
Her opponent is Republican Donna
Clarke, a former state legislator. Clarke
believes she can make a stronger con-
nection between citizens and the tax
collector's office. She says she can open
new satellite offices and offer new ser-
vices.
"I just think I can do a better job," she
told us.
Clarke has something to offer, but it's
a long stretch to think she could outper-
form the incumbent. We find no reason
to think Ford-Coates is doing anything
short of an outstanding job for Sarasota
County.
She's an incumbent, so maybe voters
in an anti-incumbent mood will simply
vote the other way, even though Ford-
Coates, a Democrat, is widely admired
for her efficiency and fairness.


She's the tax collector, so maybe peo-
ple angry about taxes will blame her,
even though she has nothing to do with
policy or assessments and only handles
collections.
Clarke, the former legislator, has
good name recognition, so maybe peo-
ple will check her name rather than
Ford-Coates', since she's a low-profile
type in a low-profile office who ran
without opposition three straight times.
In this case, we hope the incumbent
isn't hurt by voters' natural tendency
not to read all the way down the ballot.
She's an effective professional who
deserves support.
Ford-Coates began working in the
tax collector's office 33 years ago and
has been in the tax collector's chair for
24 years. She has been president of the
state and national tax collectors' organi-
zations. She was named outstanding tax
collector in the United States this year.
Her aim, she told us, is "to continue


to provide exceptional service to the
people of Sarasota County at the lowest
cost possible."
By all standards, the office's service is
excellent.
Statistics show the tax collector's
office has an extremely low employee-
to-taxpayer ratio. It is part of Ford-
Coates' philosophy to continually
assess the office's efficiency.
To that end, she produces a thick
quarterly report that tracks office
employees' performance in customer
service. The department figures indi-
cate extremely quick response times.
More than that, though, we're
impressed that Ford-Coates makes the
effort to track performance.
It's not just a numbers game. The
office adapts to circumstances. A case in
point is what normally might be a diffi-
cult situation politically, an office
employee accused of selling driver
licenses to illegal aliens. After waiting


for an arrest to be made, as law enforce-
ment requested, Ford-Coates brought
in an auditor, then quickly set up an
oversight system requiring an addition-
al employee checkoff, which state law
for some reason does not require.
That's a smart, honest, straightfor-
ward response that typifies the tax col-
lector's operation here.
Ford-Coates told us she adopted a
bottom-up management philosophy
nearly 20 years, one that emphasizes
openness, listening, availability and
action on good ideas.
"The concept allows everybody's
brain power to be tapped," she said.
The approach within the office
matches the approach to the public.
Clarke may well have the ability to do
the job, but there's no reason to change
a good thing.
We recommend Barbara Ford-
Coates for Sarasota County tax collec-
tor.


Can we comment?


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


The new Venice High
School is currently being
designed. The general con-
cept is very affectionately
called "the Riverview
model." Doesn't that make
us feel special?
Of course, the district
would like to save some
expense by reusing the
design, although in fact it
will have to do a consider-
able amount of change
to accommodate newer
buildings the state is
unlikely to allow it to tear
down.
The design is what I
affectionately call the
"stockade" or "fort" design.
This is modeled after the
old forts that allowed only
one way in or out so the
Indians would have a hard
time getting at the people
or munitions on the
inside. A friend of mine
who is a staunch high
school supporter thinks it
is better described as a
prison.
Why this approach?
Well, the society we live in
has made it so we have lit-
tle trust, and we fear that
people have many bad
motives from peddling
drugs to violence to
abduction. It is very sad,
because it is not likely
the most stimulating or
charming setup.
I wonder if the kids,
who really seem to be in
control, won't find this a
way to hijack the school
and keep the teachers
hostage. Just kidding.
The challenge the archi-
tects had was how to make
this a secure facility while
replicating as best they
could the Riverview model
and using the buildings
they had to keep. Among
those they likely would
have to keep are the beau-
tiful and fully functional
and modern media center,
the brand-new music
suites and the cafeteria,
which has been remod-
eled and expanded. I think
the administration build-
ing has to be kept too.
Also likely to be kept is
the main gymnasium,
although one of the plans
calls for a new gym. This
is one of many things


that should be discussed.
Should we have two gyms,
as we now have?
The old one will be torn
down, thank goodness, if
the rats don't take it down
first. The main gym we
have is fine; not that many
years ago it was upgraded
with air conditioning. If
there is only to be one, this
one would work fine, yet
there is reason to think two
would be needed.
The public should be
allowed an opportunity to
share their thoughts about
this and other aspects
of the proposed design,
which is nearly complete.
The media center is
slated to be turned into the
administration building.
This is another thing that
doesn't make much sense,
as it is a great facility. But in
order to fit the stockade
approach, it seems like a
good solution. Still, is this
design the only way to
accomplish that? I think it
should be discussed.
The music facility, bare-
ly two or three years old, is
to be made into janitors'
quarters. This seems a
great waste. We will build
all-new music facilities
just after having built
some.
I know that where they
are now will make the
stockade harder to close,
but I think good minds
might just figure that out.
I'd challenge them to try.
Why should we build
buildings we don't need
other than for security rea-
sons? We may need to, but
let's challenge ourselves.
There is a lot to like
about the thought that
went into this campus,
even if you don't like this
"lock them in" approach,
but there is room for good
minds asking good ques-
tions about the $100 mil-
lion or more that will be
spent on this project.
The timing for proceed-
ing hinges on the availabil-
ity of money. The district is
being cautious about fi-
nancial issues, although it
knows the rates it might
get would be good now. If
nothing else, it would help
stimulate the local econo-
my.
When the district knows
this important timing is-
sue, it should have a
forum.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Coaches instill class in VHS athletes


Editor:
I am writing in response to a recent Let'em Have It call
titled Penalized.
My son is a senior at Venice High and also a first-year
player for the Venice High football team. I have known
coaches Peacock, Shannon, Bartlett, Cooley, Ryan and
Butler not only on a social basis, but as my son's coaches
for more than four years. I have nothing but praise for
the honesty, integrity and sportsmanship and creden-
tials these coaches have.
The caller said the Venice Indian football team was
penalized 85 yards for "running their mouths." Checking
the official score book, the penalties are as follows: two
pass interference calls for 30 yards, two roughing the
punter calls for 30 yards and one unsportsmanlike call
for 15 yards.
By the tone of the call, you would think the Venice
High School football team was a bunch of trash-talking,
unsportsmanlike, disrespectful punks. This is extremely
far from the truth. The Venice High School football team
carries a "B" grade-point average. My son is friends with,
and I personally know, a lot of the boys on this team.
They are a fantastic group of young men.
We have never witnessed any team from Venice play
with anything but dignity and class. I feel this is a direct
reflection on all the coaches Venice High School has and
the athletic department as a whole.
Anyone who does not believe Venice has one of the
best teams around, and one of the best coaching staffs,
please come and see for yourself.

The party is over
Editor:
The era of genius in
American politics and
finance has finally come to
a crashing end. And what a
time it was.
We were all told that the
laws of finance had been
repealed, and that we
could have it all. In the
time of Herbert Hoover
and the Great Depression
this was called trickle-
down economics. But now
it's given a fancy new
name: supply-side eco-
nomics.
Big businessmen were


the real masters of this
universe. CEOs created
fancy new leveraged in-
struments that promised
great riches to everybody.
Short-term was in, and
long-term was out.
The federal govern-
ment was the great bogey-
man in this drama. Buc-
caneer CEOs and our own
congressman, Vern Bu-
chanan, told us that regu-
lation was unnecessary; all
we had to do was just let
the magic of the market-
place rip, and all would
take care of itself.
But, alas, the entire


financial system has come
unraveled. What do we do
now?
It's high time for new
types of leaders. Consider
Christine Jennings, right
here in the 13th District.
Christine has 40 years of
experience as a banker, but
she sure doesn't seem
much like all these egotisti-
cal fallen giants we've been
seeing on TV lately that
midwifed this entire cata-
strophe. Instead, she offers
a more down-to-earth, eat-
your-peas style.
I just can't wait to hear
her response at committee
oversight meetings when

Literacy Summit:


The next chapter


BY NANCY PIKE
GUEST COLUMNIST

Sarasota County has
long been perceived as the
land of affluent, educated
residents who function at
a high level in personal
and professional endeav-
ors. However, data show
that nearly one-fifth of the
population does not fit this
perception due to a signif-
icant barrier: lack of litera-
cy skills.
Reading, writing, listen-
ing, speaking, compre-
hending and understand-
ing English are all prereq-
uisites to full participation
in society. In today's uncer-
tain economy, millions of
Americans need better lit-
eracy skills to find a job, to
keep the job they have or
to train for work in differ-
ent employment.
Parents who read poor-
ly are less likely to read to
their preschoolers or help
their school-age children
with assignments. Earlier
this year, the national
medical community an-
nounced findings that
patients who had difficulty
reading prescriptions were
50 percent more likely to
die from disease than
patients who were literate.
Yet, a large number of
individuals in Sarasota
County cannot read food
labels, newspapers, med-
ical forms, medication
directions, traffic signs,
notes from their children's
schools, job applications,
contracts and more.
In 2006, more than 120
persons representing
schools, libraries, literacy
organizations, businesses,
foundations, the faith-
based community and
family and social service
agencies attended a litera-
cy summit to begin a new
dialogue about the issue of
illiteracy that affects many
Sarasota County residents.
After the summit, further
meetings were held that
developed a blueprint for
the future.
There were suggestions
for ways to address the
needs of people who re-
quire literacy instruction
as well as the concerns of
that diverse array of indi-
viduals, organizations and
businesses providing such
instruction.
On Oct. 30 a follow-up
gathering will take place.
Literacy Summit 2008: The
Next Chapter will bring
advocates together to in-
crease community en-
gagement with youth,
adult, family and work-
place literacy in Sarasota
County. Literacy Summit
2008 will feature success-
ful local and regional liter-
acy programs, explore
opportunities for in-
creased collaboration in
literacy efforts and consid-
er strategies to turn possi-
bilities into action.
Representatives from
community and faith-
based organizations,
schools, libraries and em-
ployers will share their lit-
eracy endeavors, identify
their continuing needs
and work together to ad-
dress Sarasota County's lit-
eracy issues.
This year's speakers
include Wendy Hopkins,
vice president of Com-
munity Foundation of
Sarasota County, who will
describe the foundation's
current initiative for pre-
school and school-age lit-
eracy. Margie Genter, vice
president of mission ser-
vices for Goodwill Mana-
sota, will talk about its
Good Partner Coach pro-
gram. Roberta Reiss, litera-
cy program coordinator of
Collier County Public Li-
brary, will discuss success-
ful workplace literacy ef-
forts, how to structure
them and find willing part-


ners.
In addition, attendees

table discussions related
to specific topics, such as
marketing reading to kids
and engaging business
support for literacy.
Sarasota County is for-
tunate that dozens of orga-
nizations, libraries and
employers offer literacy
instruction to preschool-
ers, school-age youth, ado-
lescents and adults of all
ages. These organizations
introduce parents to the
importance of reading to
babies and young children
or engage students in
activities to develop learn-
ing skills. Others provide
group classes or individual
tutoring to native English
speakers who do not pos-
sess basic literacy skills as
well as to persons for
whom English is not their
native language.
Without the dedication
of hundreds of volunteers,
parents, educators, librari-
ans and employers, these
organizations would not
be able to deliver literacy
instruction to the county
residents who need it. The
power of such literacy pro-
viders is enhanced when
they work together toward
common goals, as they will
do at this summit.
Literacy Summit 2008 is
convened by the Literacy
Volunteers of South Sara-
sota County, the Literacy
Council of Sarasota, the
Sarasota County Library
System and Sarasota
County Schools. Generous
support for the summit
has been provided by Ver-
izon, Borders, the Herald-
Tribune Media Group,
Wachovia Securities and
private donors.

LET'EM HAVE IT: SHOULD THE CITY OF SARASOTA KEEP TRYING TO SIGN A TEAM FOR SPRING TRAINING
OR JUST LET THE IDEA DROP? CALL US AT 207-1111.


Next, they'll take up the mulch


Mow stupidity. They've done it again. Several years
ago when they widened Jacaranda Boulevard, they
planted beautiful trees and nice grass. Now they've
decided mowing is too expensive so they removed the
grass and put down mulch. Now the weeds are coming
through the mulch. I went by yesterday and they are now
spraying weed killer. The cost of the sod removal, the
mulch and now weed killer is probably more than the
grass mowing, and the grass was more attractive.


Enquiring minds. Ex-
cuse me, it wasn't the liber-
als who found out about
Palin's daughter, it was the
National Enquirer. The
Republicans loved it when
they found out about
Edwards' fooling around
on his wife. They applaud-
ed it and said the Enquirer
knew what it was doing.
But when it said that
Palin's daughter was preg-
nant ... well, Palin had
already kicked her daugh-
ter out of the house, and
the boy had no plans to get
married. All of a sudden
the Enquirer found out
about it. Palin had to take
her daughter back in. The
boy has already said he has
no plans to marry. In fact,
you don't hear about it
right now because the boy
has refused to do it. Ac-
cording to her, it was all
the liberals. The liberals
had nothing to do with it.
Palin, it's fair game now.
She's running for vice pres-
ident of the United States
and a lot of us just don't
think she's qualified.


Handful. I think Bob
Vedder's column was very
accurate. I've worked at
the airport for many years,
and I don't want to lose my
job. Sue Lang might want
me to lose my job, but I do
not want to. So, I think Bob
hit the nail on the head;
he's very accurate. It's just a
handful of people who do
not like the airport and
she's one of them. She's
only lived here a few years,
and maybe she should
move back up north.
Enough. Sue Lang ei-
ther needs to resign, or we
need to have a recall vote.
She certainly doesn't rep-
resent me or my neighbors
in Pinebrook. I believe we
should improve and devel-
op our airport so we can
have an airport we can
trust, totally safe and eco-
nomically sound. We need
to equip it with the latest
technology available, and
make it a facility our city
can be proud to claim as
one of Florida's finest. If
the three new members on
the council can't get off the


negative agenda, let's start
speaking out with one
voice, loud and clear. We
want everything we can
possibly get to maintain
the Venice airport as first-
rate, five-star, or whatever
the rating is. Enough is
enough.
Hitting the nail. I think
Mary Kay Ruppel's article
hit the nail right on the
head about the Fannie
Mae and Freddy Mac. Why
don't your staff do a little
reporting on Obama's role
in the economic failures?
Look into the ACORN
organization. He was into
this mess up to his nose.
The media seem to over-
look all of Obama's mis-
takes, greed, lies and
cover-ups. Why not report
the true facts concerning
the financial breakdown?
What ever happened to
truth in reporting? Thank
God for Mary Kay
Service call. I recently
took my vehicle to one of
the local dealerships to
have some service work
performed. The adviser
there suggested I have a
30,000-mile service done,
which would take from
two and a half to three
hours, which I agreed to
have done. I decided to
wait on it. Approximately
45 minutes later, he came
out and told me the vehi-
cle was ready. I questioned


how that much work could
be done in a period of 45
minutes. He told me I
would have to talk to the
service adviser, which I did.
The subject there was not
very helpful very conde-
scending but offered me
a free oil change in return
for just letting it go. I then
asked to speak to the gen-
eral manager, who was
equally rude, and told me if
I did not want the free oil
change that I could just
leave, that he was tired of
giving things away to peo-
ple who thought they had
something coming to
them. I'm really at a loss
that the bill was almost
$300 for 45 minutes worth
of work, and I question how
much of that work was
actually done. I asked the
general manager to speak
to the owner, and he told
that the owner only speaks
to people upon appoint-
ments. I don't believe I was
treated right. Money is hard
to come by and people
should be more aware of
what's going on at the deal-
erships in terms of having
work done. They should
make sure they get done
what is promised to them.
Biased. I'm sick of your
newspaper's continued
bias against the city council
and the mayor. I will not be
renewing my subscription
to your paper.
Dogged. Sarah, get your
huskies hooked up and
ready for your trip back to
Alaska. Mush!

Venice over Tampa Prep

Michael Flynn tried frantically to get
his volleyball team back in the
match, Venice High School head
coach Brian Wheatley crouched in
the middle of the huddle and
bounced as his team danced to
"Jump Around" by House of Pain.
This team was loose.
"We just wanted to come out and
play smooth like we played against
PK. Yonge," said junior middle hitter
Jillian Allen. "I think we did a good
job at accomplishing that tonight."
Allen and fellow middle hitter
Whitney Steranko were the keys
offensively and defensively to the
Indians' 25-15, 25-16, 26-24 sweep of
Tampa Prep Friday in the Teepee.
Allen led the team with 13 kills and a
.462 hitting percentage. Steranko
accounted for half of Venice's team
blocks with four.
"They're running the middle real
well," Wheatley said. "The biggest
thing from the other times we've
played (Tampa Prep) is our block is
really coming together. We've been
working on that a lot in practice and
our kids are buying into the fact that
you've got to have a lot of hands up
there at the net in power volleyball."

Jillian Allen, No. 22, had 13 kills in the 3-0 match against Tampa Prep, leading
Venice High School to an important victory.


The Indians (16-7) totaled eight
blocks and Tampa Prep rarely had an
uncontested swing at the ball, giving
Venice more time to react and play
defense. Junior setter Taylor
Capasso, who finished with 29
assists, used the extra time to spread
the ball around to the middle as well


as the outside hitters.
Outside hitters Emily Daniels and
Dorothy Rahal combined for 18 kills.
Allen and Steranko combined for 17,
making for a pretty balanced offen-
sive attack. The attack was the most

lorio waits his turn


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice High School
junior Joe Iorio impresses
coaches with his strong
arm, accurate passes,
strong work ethic and
speed. But this kid doesn't
stand a chance.
Even if Iorio were the
second-bestjunior quarter-
back in the state, he would
still ride the pine behind
University of Florida-
bound junior Trey Burton.
Unless the unthinkable
happens and Burton goes
down with an injury, Iorio
will not see the field this
season except for late in
games in mop-up duty.
"It isn't easy," said quar-
terbacks coach Jon Cooley,
who served as a career
backup at Auburn Univer-
sity. "He could be playing
some DB and receiver for
us, but the backup quar-
terback is one of the most
important pieces to a
team because if that guy
goes down, you've got to
have somebody that can
go in there and keep it
rolling."
Iorio spent the spring
and summer working out
as a wide receiver and
defensive back. He's fast
and athletic enough to
excel at those positions,
but by fall the Indians
needed a backup quarter-
back.
So instead of coming
onto the field with team-
mates Max Brandow and
Mike Bishop in certain
receiver packages, Iorio
waits his turn. His situa-
tion is unique.
Plenty of players work
hard all week in practice
and never see the field
come Friday night. But for
them, the hope exists to
outperform the competi-
tion and win a spot. Venice
head coach John Peacock
said that every position
but two, quarterback and
running back, is open
every week.
Even backup running
back Rashad McRae gets
to come in when senior

Backup quaterback Joe lorio throws a pass during practice Tuesday afternoon.


Dri Archer needs a
breather. McRae also has
the good fortune of being
a junior playing behind a
senior. There's always next
season.
Not for Iorio. He might
never start at quarterback
for the Indians. As the
backup, he's too valuable
to risk an injury playing
another position. So he
sticks to the sidelines,
visualizing making plays
in place of Burton.
"It's tough to be out
there knowing I'm not
going to play, but I'm just
working through this year
to stick around and play
next year," Iorio said.


"Hopefully I'll be out on
the field a lot next year."
Obviously Burton will
still be around next year
and that position will be
blocked again. Iorio is
awaiting the arrival of
another backup quarter-
back. The plan, said
Cooley, is to bring sopho-
more quarterback A.J.
Rotella up from junior var-
sity and move Iorio some-
where he can be used
more effectively.
"He could be playing
some other positions for
us as well, receiver or DB,
and I think next year that's
what he'll be doing a lot
more of," Cooley said. "But


we thought he would be
the best guy if Trey went
down. He can step in there
and run the offense and
make some throws for us."
In the meantime, Iorio
gets to work side-by-side
with a potential college
football star. He also gets
to work with a close friend
and longtime teammate.
"It's a lot of fun because
me and Joe have been
friends ever since we were
little," Burton said. "We're
really good friends."
Iorio and Burton go all
the way back to Little
League baseball, where

Tom Tresh: 'He


didn't have an enemy'


BY PATRICK OBLEY
STAFF WRITER

Hop into the time
machine and hit the
rewind button.
Return to the 1960s and
put yourself in the room
with Tom Tresh and the
brass of the New York
Yankees.
You are witnessing one
of those moments in life
when one door closes and
another opens. We all have
those moments, though
we rarely realize we're in
them as they happen.
Tom Tresh saw it for
what it was.
On that day, the Yank-
ees asked Tresh a simple,
direct question: Are you a
singer, or are you a
ballplayer?
He could do one or the
other, but not both.
The Tom Tresh Trio died
that day, but his sterling
baseball career went on
and Yankees fans every-
where are glad he chose
pinstripes over guitar
strings.
Tresh, a Venice trans-
plant from Michigan, died
earlier this week of a heart
attack. The 1962 American
League rookie of the year
and member of three
World Series teams was 71.
"Of course, I've had a
zillion calls," said Sandi,
Tresh's wife. "The kind
words ... he didn't have an
enemy anywhere. He was
the kind of guy who would
give you the shirt off his
back even if it was his last
shirt."
Tresh had baseball in
his blood but music in his
heart. He was the son of
Mike Tresh, an all-star
catcher for the Chicago
White Sox during the
1940s.
"The difference between
Tom and me was when
Tom talked about baseball,
he'd say, 'When I make it to
the Majors ...' while I just
said, 'God, I'd really love to,"
said Al Gates, Tresh's child-
hood friend.
When Gates and Tresh
weren't playing ball, they
were strumming their gui-
tars. Before long, the duo
teamed up with John
Alison and the Tom Tresh
Trio was born.
They had visions of
becoming the next King-
ston Trio.
Problem was, Tresh real-
ly could swing the bat. They
kept playing during Tresh's
rise through the Yankees'
farm system, but when
Tony Kubek was drafted
into military service in
1962, a door opened.
Tresh took Kubek's place
at shortstop on Opening
Day. It would be another 34
years before another rook-
ie shortstop got an open-
ing-day nod Derek Jeter
in 1996.
His impact was imme-
diate: 26 doubles, 20 home
runs and a .286 batting
average, leading to rookie
of the year honors and,
ultimately, the 1962 World
Series title.
But when Yankees
Stadium opened its doors,
another slammed shut on
the Tom Tresh Trio.
Columbia Records offered
a recording contract, but
the Yankees quashed any
talk of moonlighting.
"In those days, the
Yankees pretty much
owned your soul," Sandi
said. "He knew for sure he
could make a living playing
ball. He didn't know if he
could make it in music, so
he stayed with baseball."
"He did fine and we
went home brokenheart-
ed," Gates said with a laugh.
Tresh played nine sea-
sons and retired in 1969
with a 153 home runs and
a .245 batting average. He
homered off Sandy Koufax

Tom Tresh, 71, a Venice trans-
plant from Michigan, died
earlier this week of a heart
attack. He was the 1962
American League rookie of
the year and a member of
three World Series teams.

during the 1963 World
Series and homered twice
in the 1964 Series, one
coming against Bob
Gibson.
From his first day in
pinstripes, he had been
compared to Mickey
Mantle, primarily because
he was a switch-hitter with
power.
"I think there was a little
pressure on him because
everyone described him as
another Mantle," said
Bobby Richardson, who
was Tresh's double-play
partner on the 1962 team.
"He had power, could run
real good and it was a great
comparison ... but that
made it hard to live up to
that."
Tresh switched to the
outfield when Kubek
returned and had four
seasons with 20 or more
home runs, including 27
in 1966.
He also would play his
guitar in the dugout dur-
ing rain delays.
It's in those moments,
when Tresh's personality
was on display, that made
a lasting impression on
Richardson.
"He was always smil-
ing, a very kind person,"
Richardson said. "He had
real insights into the
game, but also in life."
Richardson and Tresh
crossed paths often in
retirement, the most recent
time coming in August
when Yankees players from
every era descended on
Yankees Stadium for its
final Old-Timer's game.
"We were trying to fig-
ure out who had the most
grandchildren," Richard-
son said.
The two were planning
to get together again next
month at Moose Skowron's
fantasy camp. Richardson
and his wife had just
returned to their Sumter,
S.C. home from a trip to
the Billy Graham Library in
Charlotte when the call
came concerning Tresh's
passing.
"The topic of the semi-
nar was 'One Moment
After You Die,'" Richardson
said. "Then I got the call. I
was just shocked. He was
just doing fine."
The Tom Tresh Trio's
loss was baseball's gain
and it is clear many peo-
ples' lives are all the richer
for it.
There are a lot of mem-
ories Gates will cherish
from a friendship that
spanned six decades -
playing sandlot ball, room-
ing with him at Central
Michigan, coming within a
heartbeat of being rock
stars- but like Richardson,
his lasting impression is of
Tresh the human being.
"He was just an all-
around good guy," Gates
said. "I have never met a
man who was the best of
everything. He made me
feel small when it came to
being a father. He took

Holder, Rosenfeld square off for House


BY STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER


Two years after moving
to Osprey, Republican
Doug Holder successfully
ran to become the Florida
District 70 representative.
He wants another term.
On his campaign Web
site, the 41-year-old Re-
publican stated, "For the
past two years, I have
worked across party lines
to help cut property taxes,
protect insurance policy
holders, make health care
more affordable, position
Florida as a leader in ener-
gy alternatives, improve
education and protect our
environment."
This election cycle,
Holder faces Democrat
Sam Rosenfeld, 57, on the
November ballot. Florida
House District 70 stretches


from Siesta Key in Sarasota
to north Englewood.
Holder, a real estate
broker, cited his legislative
role serving on Conserva-
tion & State Lands, Health
Quality, Homeland Securi-
ty & Public Safety commit-
tees. He also has a seat on
the House Economic Ex-
pansion & Infrastructure
Council, and he received
an "A" rating from the Flor-
ida Chamber of Com-
merce in 2007 and 2008.
Holder said he believes
the best way to restart the
economy is through tax
relief and keeping burden-
some government regula-
tions low. He views present
property taxes as burdens
for homeowners and small
businesses and describes
those taxes as "unaccept-
able."
Holder calls education

"an economic issue and a
moral issue." He wants
education dollars to go
into classrooms and to
make sure schools are suc-
ceeding for all children.
Holder also calls for the
state to address undocu-
mented immigrants, sug-
gesting "order" be brought
to the immigration pro-
cess and to stop rewarding
those who come here ille-
gally by ending govern-
ment benefits to them.
More information on


Holder and his positions
can be found on his Web
site at www.dougholder.
com.

Sam Rosenfeld
Rosenfeld believes he
can help stop what he sees
as the power special inter-
est groups and lobbyists
have over Tallahassee. He
views state government as
"broken."
"Our present Legisla-
ture is in a state of denial,"
Rosenfeld stated on his
Web site.
The No. 1 issue for him is
the economy.
"I will work closely with
our (Sarasota County) com-
missioners to improve the
business environment in
Sarasota County," Rosen-
feld promises.
Among his initiatives,
Rosenfeld, a retired dentist


and Venice resident, would
like to see improvement of
job creation through tax-
incentive programs, the
creation of research and
development tax credits,
and matching grant pro-
grams to assist Florida
entrepreneurs, especially
small businesses.
His experience running
dental practices in Penn-
sylvania, he said, gives him
insight into the challenges
small business owners
face. Rosenfeld, too, wants
Florida to invest in educa-
tion of its youth.
"We need to find an
effective way to fund edu-
cation," he stated. "We


must graduate an educat-
ed workforce, by doing so
we will attract more small
businesses to our commu-
nity. The benefit will be to
broaden and diversify the
tax base."
He also calls for Florida
to follow the lead of Cali-
fornia Republican Gov.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
and California's incentive
plan to see the installation
of 1 million solar roofs.

SUN NEWSPAPERS 15A


Miller, Mullarkey face off in county commission debate


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Sarasota County Commission
District 1 candidates John Mullarkey,
an independent, and Jono Miller,
a Democrat, spoke at the Sara-
sota Garden Club last week, but
Republican candidate Carolyn
Mason was absent.
Miller said this was the third
forum Mason had missed.
"I think the public is entitled to
hear all the candidates, and we're all
being cheated if we don't get to hear
all the viewpoints," Miller said. "I hope
as we close out this campaign we can
get the point where everybody is par-
ticipating and the public gets to learn
about everybody's views."
Miller and Mullarkey offered
plenty of their own views. Asked
what he would do to attract sustain-
able industries to the county. Miller
said the county needs to build on its
strength- sustainability.
"And it might be possible, either


fully or partially, to rebate taxes on
equipment to make it possible for
small manufacturing to be present
in the county," he said.
Mullarkey stressed the importance
of proactively seeking businesses of
all sorts to come to the county.
"We have to incubate our small
businesses and we have to chase
other businesses here," he said. "You
do not wait for the phone to ring or
you go broke."
Taking a pass
Another question focused on major
employment center zoning designa-
tions: When would the candidates
consider a request to rezone an MEC in
favor of a commercial designation?
"Some conversion might be
acceptable, but I think we need to
hold on to our MEC," Miller said.
"It reverts back to return on
investment," Mullarkey countered.
"What is the project? What is the gain
to the taxpayer? If it created more
jobs, sure, I'd be in favor of rezoning


it. If it destroys a neighborhood, no."
The candidates were then asked
what major challenges they saw
coming to Sarasota County over the
next four years.
"Taxes, infrastructure, beaches,"
Mullarkey said. "The only thing we've
got cooking for us right now is
tourism. We have to protect these.
Midnight Pass must be reopened.
And we need to dredge Big Pass to
nourish the beaches."
Miller said neighborhood preser-
vation was high on his list.
"It's tremendously debilitating to
see so many vacant homes," he said.
"They're big problems for neighbor-
hoods and we need strategies to keep
the homes looking right and refilled
with citizens who have jobs."
Miller said the passes did not nec-
essarily require opening.
"I think we need to look at the
money we have to manage our
coastal resources, look at the projects
competing for those dollars and
make some tough choices," he said.

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 Business Association trying to
find common ground so that council could complete the
Airport Masterplan Update.
KIT MCKEON 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
* Supporting Sensible Growth and Redevelopment

HERB CONFERENCES LEAD



TO FARMING VACATION


BY CHRISTINA BABIAK, MD
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER


I attended the June 2007 biannual International Herbal Symposium at Wheaton College, Mass., where I
heard Deb Soule lecture on nutritional herbs. She is the owner of Avena Farm in Rockland, Maine.
Some of the slides she shared with us were of the most beautiful, enchanting flower garden I had
ever seen. Right then, I decided I would be there some day.
The lecture covered exactly what I was seeking information on the power of herbs to help the
body and spirit heal after a stressful injury or illness.
I saw Soule again at the annual Women's Herbal
/' Conference in New Hampshire in August, and I bought
some of her farm-made products to try for my own heal-
ing. As an aside, all of these herb conferences are open
to the public.

Avena Farm.


Changing life
In May of 2007, I closed my 25-year family
practice office in Venice because of high stress and
failing health and gave away everything to the free
clinic in Port Charlotte.
For 30 years, I have studied preventive medi-
cine with an emphasis on foods as medicine as well
as fitness and stress management. In addition, I
have spent 15 years attending herbal medicine con-
ferences, reading international medical journals
and natural medicine texts. In the summer of
2007, I studied medicinal plants in New England
with clinical herbalists.
Herbs seem to offer an advantage in some
ways, in addition to eating organic fresh
foods, for restoring vitality to my patients
suffering from chronic diseases of fatigue,
cardiovascular and metabolic disasters, can-
cer and especially maldigestion.
I began a medical nutrition consultation
business in the area the following winter and
most patients improved their healing by
changing their diets and adding herbs in
many forms, including Avena Restorative
Root Powders. I wanted to see how Soule's
products were made, so I called her and
asked her to allow me to work on her farm
in exchange for the chance to experience
her garden.

Farm life
My husband Eric Sturgess and I left our
home in Florida and drove to Maine after
attending the Medicine from the Earth
Symposium in North Carolina. We parked our
camper beside the barn of Soule's partner Tom
Griffin at Hope's Edge Farm in Hope, Maine, for
most of August. Hope's Edge Farm is a

the ever-increasing costs
of a higher education.
The handbook is the
perfect tool for any stu-
dent planning to attend a
four-year university, com-

Community Supported
Agriculture organic biody-
namic vegetable farm.
Dr. Rudlof Steiner, an
Austrian philosopher and
scientist, is considered the
father of biodynamic farm-
ing.
With this method, farm-
ers basically consider the
soil and the farm as living
creatures with self-con-
tained individuality. It is a
spiritual form of organic
farming that involves farm-
ing by the phases of the
moon and using herbs in
composting.
I worked on Soule's
organic biodynamic Avena
Herb Farm helping her
young women apprentices
pick hundreds of pounds of
ripe, juicy orange
Calendula, Holy Basil,
milky oats and red clover
blossoms. Once picked,
these items had to be hur-
ried up to a special drying
room in the barn before
they wilted.
When ready, these were
carried to the clean farm-
house kitchen for
Gretchen to make into
medicinal extracts by
soaking the fresh or dried
herbs in alcohol, glycer-
ine, local cider vinegar or
organic nut oils, then

Community Supported Agriculture involves a group of

straining and bottling.
Other workers mixed
the tea and root formulas
for shipment to stores and
practitioners.
It was hard work bend-
ing over to pick huge bas-
kets of blossoms at their
peak, but the garden was
gorgeous with colors and
smells in the sunshine,
surrounded by bees and
hummingbird pollinators.
I was stung on the finger
only once by a bee going
for the same blossom as
me. I rubbed plantain leaf
on it and the pain was
soon gone. Soule and
Griffin use only special bio-
dynamic herbal compost
to enrich the soil. They do
not use pesticides. I picked
and ate ripe herbs and veg-
etables in the field.
August was the peak
month for harvesting veg-
etables as well, so Eric and I
earned our keep and all the


vegetables we wanted to eat
by helping Farmer Tom.
I picked vegetables for
the CSA biweekly distrib-
ution, pinched Japanese
beetles eating the beans
and potato beetles on the
eggplant as pest control.
I also did a lot of weed-
ing.
Eric, who is a contrac-
tor, split wood, repaired
the barn, spread hay and
built windows for the
farm house.
We picked blueberries


on the farm up the hill
from Hope's Farm. We ate
them with fresh local
yogurt and oatmeal made
with locally grown oats
and pancakes made with
spelt flour. Spelt is an
ancient wheat-like grain.
Back home
We drove back to Florida
at the end of September,
and I reopened my nutri-
tional consultation practice
in October.
I have plans to share
what I learned this sum-
mer and encourage our
community to seek local
organic foods, grow some
herbs for culinary or
medicinal use at home
and support local CSAs.
I plan to teach classes
on making your own
medicinal ointments,
infused oils and vinegars,
flower essences and cook-
ing with herbs.

Interstate trail created as Alabama and Georgia rail-trails


BY KATIE TEST
GUEST WRITER


Representatives from
Georgia's Silver Comet
Trail and Alabama's Chief
Ladiga Trail announced in
September the joining of
these two outstanding rail-
trails, now spanning 95.5
miles in total length. The
connection of the two
trails creates the longest,
continuously paved rail-
trail connection in the
country.
The Georgia-Alabama,
cross-state trail connec-
tion is the first of three
similar state line gateway
projects across the country
in the construction phase.
The program is made pos-
sible though a grant from
Coca-Cola North America
and is facilitated by Rails-
to-Trails Conservancy. A
celebration held on Sept.
27 also honored the com-
pletion of the 61.5-mile

FINE WHINE!


Fountain of common


BY JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

As the county considers
using the 1-cent sales sur-
tax to build some team a
new Spring Training facili-
ty and the nation contem-
plates doing away with the
iconic penny all together, I
have to wonder: What's the
value of a cent?
I grew up in the '90s,
but I watched enough tele-
vision as a kid to know that
a penny was once worth
something. I'm almost
certain, for example, that
you could buy a loaf of
bread for 15 cents in the
1950s I think I saw it on
an episode of "I Love
Lucy."
The Internet says that
chicken was 43 cents a
pound in 1953, and I recall
some old jingle that went,
"shave and a haircut, two
bits." I don't know what a
bit is, but I assume it's less
than $10.
What does the future
hold for our least-valued
currency? Fortunately, like
the bronzed face of honest
Abe reflecting from the
bottom of a wishing well,
there's a twinkle of hope
for our country's pocket
change at least in
Collier County, where 40
cents can buy you a bed-
room with two beds, a sin-
gle bath and running
water. Though I have a
feeling you probably won't
like the neighborhood.
The Naples Daily News
reported recently that a


43-year-old Bonita Springs
man was arrested on
charges of petty theft after
police say he stole 42 cents
from a shopping-mall
fountain.
A customer at the
Coastland Center Mall
spotted the man as he
pulled money out of the
fountain. The eyewitness
reported the crime to a
mall security guard, who
detained the thief until
police arrived.
A search of his person
revealed that Mujzer was
in fact in possession of 42
cents of presumably
slightly wet currency. He
was booked into the
Collier County jail on a
$500 bond.
As a reporter, I cannot
give opinions on matters
of ethics in what I write. I
present the facts, and the
reader judges for them-
selves. That being said, this
is what I think we should
do.
I propose that the citi-
zens of the county form a
committee to study when
a crime is actually worth
the effort for police to fol-
low through with prose-
cuting. Now before a mob
of ethicists start beating at
my door, I ask that you
consider the following:
It costs an average of
somewhere between $40
to $50 per day to retain a
single inmate in prison. In
addition, police spend a
lot of time writing up
paperwork, appearing at
court dates, transporting


sense

prisoners, etc.
I'll start the discussion
with my own solution to
save tax dollars in the
future. The following for-
mula is the result of a
seven-month evaluation
of data sets, cost analysis,
criminal pathology and
laboratory experiments. I
humbly submit it for your
approval:
If the cost of the gaso-
line used to drive the crim-
inal to the police station
outweighs the amount of
money that the criminal
actually stole, the thief
doesn't get arrested.
I stipulate that the
crime must occur within 5
miles of the police station
for this law to apply. So,
assuming that a police

Protecting Your Teen Driver


FROM NAPSA


Many American fami-
lies are giving their teens
vehicles before they head
to college or join the work-
ing world. Auto insurance
experts share safety and
insurance tips to help pro-
tect your child behind the
wheel.
Putting your teen in a
safe vehicle protects him
or her on the road and
lowers insurance rates,
says Tim Noble at General
Casualty.
"We recommend teens
drive more conservative
vehicles in good condition
and equipped with basic
safety features like air
bags, head restraints and
anti-lock brakes."
The Insurance Infor-
mation Institute notes that
teen drivers lack experi-
ence, and speeding and

reckless driving are more
common. High-perfor-
mance features, such as
turbocharged engines, can
encourage riskier driving,
like speeding. They also
cost a lot more to insure,
says Unigard's John
Blodnick.

Build Good Driving
Habits
Before giving the keys
to your teen, Debbie
Fester of Farmers Union
Insurance recommends
reviewing basic "rules of
the road":
Obey the speed limit
and traffic laws.
Concentrate on the
road. Don't use the phone,
eat or apply makeup while
driving.
Allow plenty of time
for trips so driving isn't
stressful.
Drive sober.

"Parents can help by
setting a good example
when they drive," says
Fester. "It's more likely
your teen will drive
responsibly if you do, too."
Discuss with your inde-
pendent agent how to
keep insurance costs
down. Most insurers offer
savings if your student
maintains a "B" or 3.0
grade point average (on a
4.0 scale).
Your child's insurance
could increase substan-
tially if he or she is ticketed
for underage drinking,
even if he or she is not
behind the wheel.
Accidents and traffic cita-
tions also increase premi-
ums, so educate your teen
to encourage good driving
decisions.
Let your agent know if
you have questions about
insuring your teen driver.

Water Day.

beach at Historic Spanish Point.

Strolling, fishing and sailing through the season


CINDY GNEGY
COLUMNIST


The Science and Environ-
mental Council working with
Sarasota County declared Oct.
13 through Oct. 19, Watershed
Awareness Week. Countywide
programs and events will
highlight the importance of
our region's watershed and
environmentally sensitive
areas.
Historic Spanish Point
began its seasonal Sunset
Stroll as part of Watershed


Awareness Week. During this
event, a new mangrove exhibit
was dedicated. Historic
Spanish Point has a consider-
able amount of mangroves lin-
ing the coastal areas and edu-
cational signs will be placed
along the trail through the
mangrove forest. Watching the
sunset from high on an Indian
midden at White Cottage and
taking strolls to featured loca-
tions on the 30 acre site is a
weekly Wednesday event that
will continue through April.
Family Water Day, which is
dedicated to the maritime tra-
ditions of Historic Spanish
Point, started in September
and continues every second
Saturday through April. This
popular family event offers
catch-and-release fishing on
the beach of Little Sarasota Bay.
John Barnes, 12, has been
coming to the point since he
was 8. Over the summer he
began working as a volunteer
and continues with the fishing


activities during Family Water
Days.
"I've had lots of bites," said
Eric Scarlett, 10. "A puffer fish
nibbled on my bait."
"We saw a hermit crab,"
said Brooklynn Houser, 11.
She and her brother Bailey
enjoyed watching minnows
swim close to their feet.
James Apapbologna took
his sons Adam, Alex and
Austin to the fishing event
after hearing about it from his
friend Bill Barnes.
"Bill's wife volunteers here,"
Apapbologna said. The outing
was such a success for the
Apapbologna family that they
decided to become members
so they could benefit from
unlimited admission.
Wayne Harwell took his
daughters, Jessica and
Madeleine, to the point for
some fishing and managed to
do a little fishing of his own.
With a Disney princess rod, he
almost landed a big one but it


got away. As with many fish
tales, the fish will grow in size
by the time he tells the story to
family and friends and he
probably won't mention the
princess rod.
"I caught a catfish and a
mangrove snapper at the
beach," said Douglas Prescott,
11. Prescott and his friends later
decided to see if the fishing was
better off the pier at the Citrus
Packing House. It proved to be
productive with fish so large
they broke the line.
A free ride on the sharpie
Freeman Hill, one of the
maritime heritage boats
at Historic Spanish
Point, was an unex-
pected addition to the
morning activities.
Madeleine Harwell
and friends Brooke and
Jenna Riley, all 4 years old,
did not hesitate to jump on
board to experience sail-
ing in the handmade
boat.

Learning from experiences of other people


One of my favorite
things about my job
are the stories peo-
ple tell me. They are stories
of hope and strength they
and are often surprising.
This week I spoke with a
woman named Carol
Nelson. Carol is 69 and
lives in Punta Gorda. She
told me she's always been
healthy, aside from back
problems.
She has blue eyes and
likes the sun, so she makes
it a point to go to the der-
matologist for an annual
checkup.
Carol had her annual visit
in March, and she was told
everything was fine. She
continued doing the things
she normally does, includ-
ing getting her hair cut.
Carol has been getting

her hair cut
by Cindy
Gunther at
the Hair House in Punta
Gorda off and on for 10
years. A few months after
her doctor visit she had an
appointment with Cindy.
"I noticed a spot on her
head," she said, "it wasn't
all that big and it was like,
purple."
The spot was in her hair-
line, on the top of her
scalp, closer to her fore-
head.
Carol remembers Cindy
asking about the mark,
"She said she didn't
remember seeing any


birthmarks before and that
I should have a doctor look
at it."
She went back to the doc-
tor. In order to remove the
spots they had to take off
three inches of skin from
her head and forehead.
Three lymph nodes were
also removed for further
testing. It took two weeks
to get the results back from
the lymph node tests. One
was malignant.
She had another surgery
and they removed 15 more
lymph nodes they were
clear.
She is recovering from
her surgeries, but she is not
resting quietly. She wants
people to hear her story.
"The people I know
around me are now going
to the dermatologist hav-


ing their scalp looked at,"
she said.
She also said that
melanoma is very aggres-
sive and can grow very fast.
"The thing is, I would
have noticed eventually, as
it got bigger," she
explained. "If she (Cindy)
hadn't caught it when she
did, I just don't know."
Carol believes that maybe
if some hairdressers see
this story, they might keep
their eyes open. Cindy
agrees.
"It's not a good story, but
yet it is, because we can
save somebody," Cindy
said. "I just love her, we've
known each other a long
time."
Carol added, "If I can
help one person, it's worth
it."

Opticians help patients view the wide


range of eyeglass options


Eyeglasses are making a trendy comeback. In fact, in recent
years, they've made the leap from vision necessity to fashion
accessory. Today's eyeglasses are lightweight, sleek, comfort-
able, and, well, downright stylish. With so many choices in
eyeglass frames and lenses, finding the best fit can be over-
whelming. For this reason, the role of the Optician in your
eyecare is especially important.

In an effort to cut their costs, many discount optical retail-
ers have compromised on their staff's knowledge level, skill,
training and licensing. Utilizing the expertise of a state-li-
censed Optician, however, is the best way to help ensure a
successful outcome when purchasing eyewear.

Their skill and experience helps patients make informed deci-
sions, as not every lens and frame is suited for every patient.
The Optician helps patients achieve optimum vision in several im-
portant ways:

* When assisting a patient, the Optician looks at a
number of factors, including matching the frame
to the patient's face shape and to the type of lens
required by the patient. The patient's lifestyle is also
considered. A more durable frame, for example, might be
the best choice for a child or someone with a very active
lifestyle.

* The Optician helps the patient decide which lens
type is best for them. Today's wide array of options in-
clude tinting, special coatings, transitional lenses that turn
from clear to dark and ultra-thin lenses for those with high
prescriptions, just to name a few. The Optician explains the
pros and cons of each option and helps the patient decide
what is most appropriate for their lifestyle and visual re-
quirements.


* He or she takes measurements to determine if the
eyeglass frames are aligned properly. The center of
the lens should line up properly with the patient's line of
vision. Lining up bifocals takes extra time and precision.

* Finally, the Optician performs a final inspection
and fitting of the frames and lenses once they are
ready. It is a vital part of the process. He or she checks all
measurements and special features, as well as the fit of the
frames in order to ensure that everything is accurate and
that the frames fit as comfortably as possible.

products for both children and adults. To learn

ter.com. For an appointment, please call us at

My goal now is not to lose weight


November 3, 2007
Chemotherapy treatment
(continued)

Ihad an allergic reaction to
something and I broke out
in an itchy rash across my
chest. The rash was like poi-
son ivy rash in appearance; I
showed it to Dr. Steve this
morning and he brought in a
colleague to look at it. He had
the "I've never seen this
before" look in his eyes. He
and his associate agreed that
the rash appeared to be a
drug reaction, but it would be
hard to know which drug. He
tried to see if I had eaten
something unusual or ifYoko
was washing the clothes with
a different detergent.
I told Dr. Steve I suspected
that the reaction is a delayed
reaction; that perhaps some
of the drugs in the chemo
cocktail mask the reaction
and wear out. His colleague
thought it could be the Taxol.
The rash developed over sev-
eral days and it only got bad
last night. After today's infu-
sion it almost completely dis-
appeared. In fact, there was a
noticeable improvement
while the chemo was being
given, so I suspect my theory
is on track.
It is 3 a.m. and I am up
writing because I can't sleep.
The steroids tend to energize
me and keep me up at night. I
had enough acid tonight to
cause a violent vomiting
episode. Of course I feel bet-
ter afterward. Hopefully this
vomiting will be a one-time
event.
They say I have to maintain
my weight and I am actually


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
S 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.


eating better than I did before
my diagnosis. I would say
before all this began I
weighed 155 stark naked. In
fact, I was developing love
handles and I thought I was
getting too heavy in the
wrong places. So before I was
diagnosed, I was frequently
skipping breakfast and often
even skipping lunch and just
eating one full meal a day. In
hindsight, I now realize that
my "dieting" may have been a
loss of appetite associated
with the tumor.
I am now making it a point
to eat three meals (or more) a
day. When I went for my
annual physical, I weighed
149 with all my clothes on.
They weigh you these days
with shoes on, so who knows
what your actual weight is -
it depends on whether you
have sandals on that day or
leather wingtips!
Anyway, my point is that
this week I weighed in at 148
(fully clothed). The radiation
people began to lecture me
about how important it is that
I not loose weight. (Next week
I am going with the wingtips!)
When I weigh myself at
home in the nude after a
shower I weigh about 141 lbs.


on an admittedly less precise
scale. On the same scale I
used to weigh about 152 lbs.
If you were to ask me how
much weight I have lost in


the last six months, the
answer I would give is
between 10 and 12 lbs. That is
about a 7 percent weight loss.
Fully clothed I would have
weighed about 160. My goal is
to get back to 150 fully
clothed. Today I weighted
148.
I have not had to deal with
many other side effects so far.
They say the Cisplatin will
effect your kidneys, so I am
drinking water and peeing
frequently. I was starting to
get some back pain, but that
has gone away and so has my
cough (mostly) so that is good


news. I have not lost any
more hair than when I start-
ed, so no one knows I am
being treated for cancer. I
may skate by and not lose any
more hair we'll see.
If I start losing it on my
head, no one will notice; if I
lose my eyebrows, that is
another story and I will have
to think about what do. I do
not want the world to know
about this yet. It is a matter of
time, I suppose.

Everyone has an anger thermometer


Dear Dr. Joan: I love my
husband dearly. I have
never been angry with
him. Somehow, love and anger
don't seem to go together. But,
lately he is so focused on his job,
and pays attention to others
than he does to me. I am begin-


ning to get really irritated. I'm
not sure how to handle it.

When we first meet the "man

commonly called "in love," and
it's an illusion.
In order to move forward into
reality and enduring love, we
need to travel through disillu-
sionment. You're there.
Welcome.
Growing up we learn our fam-
ily's version of acceptable
behavior. In many families, the
children are not allowed to
express 'no,' or anger, or have
any disagreement with the man-
agement. In my family, it would


be called sassy, as in, "Don't be
sassy with me, young lady!" In
time, children learn to disregard
what they feel and give their
allegiance to the one in charge.
Most of us bring the values
learned early from out family to
our relationship. Of course, our
partner brings his values along
with him, as well. The challenge
in a relationship is to take his
picture and her picture and
search for the third creative
alternative. That search cannot

begin before
disillusion-
ment takes
place. So, cel- -
ebrate that
you are there.
In viewing
anger a little -
more closely, DR. JOAN
most folks ASHKIN, EdD,
have a ther- LCSW, RN
mometer of
different levels. Many ther-
mometers contain a progression
of upset from annoyance,
through irritation, frustration
and on to anger, resentment
and rage.
In your letter, you mentioned
that your were experiencing irri-
tation. Despite what we may
have learned in our younger
years, it is quite common to be
upset with someone we love.
Your husband wasn't meeting
your needs in at least one area.
When our expectations are not
met, we get disappointed.
Sometimes, when it's difficult
to speak about our disappoint-
ments, they can turn into a level
of anger. Contrary to popular
opinion, anger is your best
friend.
Here's how it works: anger is
energy, just like electricity.
Electricity can be used to power
a variety of items to heat the
stove, cool a room, or turn on a
light. Surprisingly enough, anger
is just as versatile. Often we
focus our anger on what we
think is the cause of our dis-
comfort. But the energy of anger
is ours to use. If we fire it at
someone else, we cannot use it
for ourselves. We can choose to
use anger as fuel to make
changes that will restore our
peace.
In the situation with your hus-
band, use your energy to gain
the courage to talk with him in a
congenial way. The two of you
can explore options about find-
ing a way to take care of your
needs. Family therapists can
help if you need an assist.

By DOMINGO E. GALLIANO
Question: What is constipa-
tion?
Answer: Constipation is not
a subject most people feel
comfortable talking about.
Most everyone has suffered
constipation at some point in
his life. Constipation can be
painful, frustration and can
interfere with a person's life.
Constipation occurs when
bowel movements become
difficult or less frequent.
According to
matamucil.com, many people
think they are constipated or
are irregular if they don't have
at least one bowel movement
a day. But this is not necessari-
ly true. Normal range of bowel
movements can vary from
three bowel movements a day,
to three per week depending
on the person.
For most people, constipa-
tion is a temporary condition
that can be caused by many
factors such as low fiber and
fluid intake, lack of exercise,
changes in routine, stress and
in some cases side effects of
certain medications.
Question: When should I
become concerned with my
constipation?
Answer: Studies show that
up to 16 percent of women in
the United States meet the
symptom criteria for chronic
constipation.
Research shows up to 45
percent of individuals with
constipation report having the
condition for five years or
more.
The following self-assess-
ment will help determine
whether or not you may suffer
from chronic constipation.
Fewer than three bowel
movements per week
The need to strain at least
25 percent of the time during
bowel movements

least 25 percent of the time
If you checked at least two
of the above boxes and have
experienced those symptoms
for at least three months, you
may have chronic constipa-
tion.
Question: Is this type of
constipation treatable?
Answer: Some chronic con-
stipation can be relieved by
using diet, exercise and a vari-
ety of medications. If you have

correct the symptoms, it is a
point where it could become
more serious.
You could be suffering from
a type of constipation known
as obstructed defecation syn-
drome. Proper testing and
diagnosis with an appropriate
plan of care are the keys to
successful treatment.
Diagnostic testing and treat-
ments include: colonoscopy,
defecography, colonic transit
studies, anal ultrasound, com-
binations of medications and

Preventive measures such
as, increasing fiber in your
diet, drinking more water, eat-

"Providing the highest qual-
ity patient care is not just a
catch phrase for us here at


Charlotte Regional. It is a
much more personal mis-
sion," said CEO Brad Nurkin.
"These awards recognize the
combined force of employees
and physicians who keep the
human element alive in the
delivery of services."
These findings were includ-
ed in the eleventh annual
HealthGrades Hospital
Quality in America Study,
which is the most compre-
hensive study of its kind, ana-
lyzing more than 41 million
Medicare hospitalization
records from 2005 to 2007 at
the nation's approximately
5,000 non-federal hospitals.
According to the study, if all
hospitals performed at the
level of five-star rated hospi-
tals, 237,420 Medicare deaths
could potentially have been
prevented over the three years
studied. More than half of
those preventable deaths were

associated with four condi-
tions: sepsis, pneumonia,
heart failure and respiratory
failure.
While overall death rates
declined from 2005 to 2007,
the nation's best-performing
hospitals were able to reduce
preventable deaths at a much
faster rate than poor-perform-
ing hospitals, resulting in
large state, regional and hos-
pital-to-hospital variations in


the quality of patient care, the
study found.
Based on the study,
HealthGrades today made
available its 2009 quality rat-
ings for virtually every hospi-
tal in the country at
www.healthgrades.com, a Web
site designed to help individu-
als research and compare
local healthcare providers.

About Autism
Autism is a complex brain
disorder that inhibits a per-
son's ability to communicate
and develop social relation-
ships, and is often accompa-
nied by behavioral challenges.
Autism spectrum disorders
are diagnosed in one in 150
children in the United States,
affecting four times as many
boys as girls. The prevalence
of autism has increased ten-
fold in the last decade. The
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention have called
autism a national public
health crisis whose cause and
cure remain unknown.
About Autism Speaks
Autism Speaks is the world's
largest autism advocacy orga-
nization, dedicated to
increasing awareness of
autism spectrum disorders, to
funding research into the
causes, prevention and treat-
ments for autism, and to
advocating for the needs of
individuals with autism and
their families. For more infor-
mation about autism and

Pride outshines
medals for senior
competitors
At an award ceremony held
September 19 at South Port
Square, 102 contestants in a
Senior Olympics and Games
competition were recognized
for their accomplishments by
South Port Square Executive
Director Debra Pattinson.
Dressed in red, white and
blue, the audience packed the
Town Hall. Winners received
medals for events in swim-
ming, walking, water basket-
ball, balance challenge, mind
challenge, bicycle race,
strength and flexibility, as well
as Wii games of Tennis, Golf,
Bowling, Boxing and Baseball.
"102 residents participated
very actively and with a lot of
energy and enthusiasm in this
year's games," said Smita
Shinde, Spa and Fitness
Director. "South Port Square
strives to keep residents very
active all the time, and this
event really showcased their
active lifestyle. Nobody
walked in the walking race -
everybody ran! It was really
unbelievable," Shinde said.
Shinde also announced
winners in a special category


that day. "These winners did-
n't win their events, but were
so inspiring to so many
through their attitude and
effort, that we thought they
deserved to be recognized for
it," Shinde said.
The rousing applause for
them confirmed her hunch
was correct.
The whole award ceremony
was a wonderful occasion
befitting a wonderfully
attended event, according to
Pattinson. For information

Olympics and Games at South
Port Square, contact Smita
Shinde at (941) 625-1100 ext

The Sun


Center is dedicated solely to women's health issues


By BEVIN GALLO
PEACE RIVER
REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER
Her name is Jane. She is a
mother, daughter, sister, best
friend, aunt, and soon to be
grandmother. Jane lives an
active lifestyle; she and her
husband enjoy all of the plea-
sures that southwest Florida
has to offer: Sandy beaches,
nature trails, and warm weath-
er year round.
Today started like any other
day. Jane awoke, took an early
jog, and returned just in time
to see her husband off to
work.
After she saw him out the
door, she began to get ready to
tackle the to-do's of the day.
First thing on the list: Her
yearly mammogram at the
Peace River Women's Imaging
Center.
Jane is 45 years old. Even


Jane had

nofamily

history of

breast

cancer,

she lived a

healthy

lifestyle,

she didn't

smoke, and

most ofall,

she did

everything,

preventively,

she was told

to do.


though
she has no
family his-
tory of
breast
cancer,
she had
her first
mammo-
gram the
year she
turned 40,
and has
routinely
had one
every year
since;
moreover,
she also
performs
monthly
breast self-
exams in
the com-
forts of her
home. All
in all, she
wasn't ner-
vous about
today it
was just a
yearly
checkup
that,
although


somewhat uncomfortable, was
something that she felt strong-
ly about having done, but not
something she worried about
having done.
Jane's mammogram at the
Peace River Women's Imaging
Center went as smoothly as it
does every year, that's why she
was shocked to receive a
phone call three days later
stating that she needed to
return because there was an
area of concern.
Jane remained calm; she
continued to tell herself that it
must be an inaccuracy, a mis-
reading of some sort.
However, after the results
came back from her second
mammogram, she was
informed that there was a spot
in her left breast; she would
need a biopsy. Jane still con-
tinued to try to remain calm. It
wasn't until she went for her
biopsy that she began to
worry. It returned positive for
cancer. Why? How could it be?
Jane had no family history of
breast cancer, she lived a
healthy lifestyle, she didn't
smoke, and most of all, she
did everything, preventively,
she was told to do.

What is a mammogram?
A mammogram is an X-ray
of the breast. It is a common
screening tool for breast can-
cer because it can show a
lump or cluster of specks,
micro-calcifications, even
before they can be felt. These
lumps or specks can be from
cancer or other conditions, so
sometimes further tests are
needed.
Other tests may include
additional X-rays or a biopsy,
where a sample of the tissue is
removed and examined by a
pathologist. Ultimately, a
biopsy is the only way to tell if
breast cancer is present.
When and how often should
women have their mammo-
gram performed?
Women younger than 40
with risk factors or a family
history of breast cancer

Ross, Juli Fields, R.T.R.M.


should consult their physician
about when they should begin
having mammograms and
how often. However, the
National Cancer Institute typi-
cally recommends that women
in their 40s have a scheduled
mammogram once every one
to two years.
The Peace River Women's


Imaging Center is located in
the Murdock Medical Park,
1649 Tamiami Trail, Port
Charlotte.
This center is dedicated
solely to women's health
issues, not only performing
mammograms, but bone den-
sity testing for osteoporosis as
well.


The Peace River North Port
HealthPark also has mammog-
raphy capabilities.
They are located at 15121
Tamiami Trail, North Port.

Peace River Women's Imaging
Center at 941-766-5084, or the

By DR. DAVID WINSOR
ACCESS CHIROPRACTIC CENTER
Ask yourself these questions:
Do You have as much energy as
you should? Are you as healthy
as you can be? Are you com-
pletely happy with your pre-
sent weight?
How does this relate to breast
cancer, you may ask.
If any of these questions raise
concern, it may indicate that
your body is not functioning as
well as it should, and eventual-
ly symptoms may appear. Why
wait?
What if? What if we could do
simple things to maintain our
health and avoid many of the
diseases that require drugs,
surgery or radiation? Could it
really be within our grasp if we
knew how?
Every day we hear more dis-
turbing news about everything
from weather and politics to
healthcare and the economy.
At times such as these, it is
easy to feel helpless, and that's
not good. If we believe that we
have no control over our
future, our health suffers.
Many studies have shown
that doing something, no mat-
ter how small or apparently
insignificant can change our
mental attitude and our health.
October is Breast Cancer
Awareness Month, and the sta-
tistics indicate that 1 in 7
women in the United States
will fall victim to breast cancer.
It is interesting to note, howev-
er, that these statistics do not
apply outside our borders.
In fact, in northern Japan
women rarely get breast cancer
and men seldom get prostate
cancer. If the same group of
people moves to the United
States, within one generation
their cancer rate equals ours.
The epidemiologists think that
this is because the older gener-
ation continues to eat as they
did at home while the younger
people adopt our cuisine of
"fast" and processed food.
What if we could learn from


the Japanese? What if there
were other non-toxic things we
could do to lower our risks? Is
it possible to reduce the shock-
ing cancer rates in this coun-
try?
We must first consider what
the dietary differences are. The
typical northern Japanese per-
son consumes 50mg of iodine
from sea vegetables which is
over 300 times our RDA or rec-
ommended daily allowance.
Guy Abraham, M.D., former
professor of obstetrics, gyne-
cology and endocrinology at
UCLA School of Medicine, has
written a series of papers about
iodine that has drastically
changed my thinking about its
role in health and the preven-
tion and treatment of disease.
Iodine has long been accept-
ed as an antiseptic, antimicro-
bial agent. Other possible func-
tions include: helping to regu-
late moods, preventing cancer
(especially in breasts, ovaries,
uterus, prostate and thyroid
gland), preventing and treating
fibrocystic breasts in women,
helping to regulate blood pres-
sure, helping to regulate blood
sugar and prevent and treat
diabetes, and helping to pre-
vent abnormal cardiac
rhythms.
What if just by checking your
iodine level, vitamin D blood
test and eating more crucifer-
ous vegetables you could dra-
matically reduce your risk of
not just breast cancer, but
many other diseases as well?
Some will and some will not.
Some smoke and some do not.
You must decide if it's worth it.
Dr. David Winsor a chiro-
practor in Murdock atAccess
Chiropractic Center, lectures
weekly at his office in Murdock
on natural health care. His reg-
ular topics are breast cancer
and iodine, osteoporosis, the
hormones of weight control
and, what we need to know to
be healthy. He can be reached at

There is more to pumpkin
than jack-o-lanterns and pie.
Pumpkin's bright orange color
is a dead giveaway that it is
loaded with beta-carotene, a
plant carotenoid that is con-
verted to vitamin A in the
body. Current research indi-
cates that a diet rich in foods
containing beta-carotene may


reduce the risk of developing
certain types of cancer and
offers protection against heart
disease. Beta-carotene offers
protection against other dis-
eases as well as some degener-
ative aspects of aging. Take a
fresh look at an old favorite
and try pumpkin in some new
ways...

Personal mission. National recognition.


Just this week, Charlotte Regional Medical Center received the 2009
Specialty Excellence awards for both Cardiac and Pulmonary Care
Services from HealthGrades, the leading independent healthcare ratings
company.

These awards place Charlotte Regional's clinical outcomes in the top
ten percent nationally for each recognized area of care and recognize


the combined force of employees and physicians who keep the human
element alive in the care our patients receive.

Providing high quality patient care is not just a catch phrase for Charlotte
Regional employees. It is a much more personal mission. Although the number
of awards we receive keeps growing, our mission remains of providing the
best care for our patients. Because you aren't just another number to us.
