Sunshine settlement hot topic at city hall


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Council will try again Tuesday
to settle the ongoing Sunshine
lawsuit against the city and nu-
merous board members when it
conducts another private coun-
cil-attorney shade meeting.
The suit, filed by Sarasota ac-
tivist Anthony Lorenzo, alleges
improper primate e-mail com-
munications and destruction of
public records.
Council members learned
Oct. 10 that attorney Andrea
Mogensen, counsel for Lorenzo,
rejected the city's most recent
offer to pay $50,000 for attorney
fees and costs to settle the suit

City enters into

contract with

psychotherapist

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

When personal problems
start interfering with work,
some people seek help. Those
who need it but don't get it can
end up losing their job.
Heading off the downward
spiral of depression, for exam-
ple, from losing a family mem-
ber or from substance abuse, is
part of the reason the city of
Venice adopted an employee
assistance program years ago.
"It was designed to help when
an employee's performance is
affected on a continuing basis,"
said Public Information Officer
Pam Johnson.
It can either be voluntary or
mandatory when job perfor-
mance begins to deteriorate or
when behavior isn't appropriate
for the workplace, she said.
Even city employees who
don't exhibit signs of difficulty
can take advantage of the on-
call service if they meet crite-
ria set by the service provider.
Last year the city paid out
$4,900 to EAP-Sarasota. Due to
confidentiality laws, the city
wouldn't divulge how many
employees took advantage of
the service last year, or the na-
ture of the help sought.
This much is known: the pro-
gram is being underutilized. Ap-
parently, employees aren't will-
ing to travel to Sarasota to re-
ceive therapy.

City Attorney Bob Anderson

Mogensen said all that chang-

YMCA has plans for Venice Arena


BY JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

In a predominantly well-
maintained and esthetically
pleasing city, driving past the
Venice Arena can be a cringe-
inducing experience. It's remi-
niscent of the rusting corpse of a
steel mill along the Ohio River
outside of Pittsburgh.
The structure, which once
housed the Ringling Bros. and
Barnum & Bailey Circus now
hosts only the occasional vandal
and the wildlife that gain access
through its cracked walls.
One day, however, the situa-
tion may change.
Plans are far from finalized. In
fact, nothing is on paper. But the
South County Family YMCA is
cautiously introducing the idea
of making the dilapidated struc-
ture a community destination
again. The proposition? A water
park.
At a recent Venice Economic
Development Task Force Meet-
ing, YMCA President Ken Mod-
zelewski floated the idea of re-
placing the crumbling arena
with a public multi-use water
park. He briefly addressed May-
or Ed Martin about the idea.
Martin said he looked forward to
discussing the proposal more in
the future.
Modzelewski said the plan is
speculative at the moment, but
said his directors have expressed
interest in building a water park
comparable to the Selby Aqua-
tics Center run by the Sarasota
YMCA.
Opened in 2000, the Selby
Aquatics Center is composed of

Empty and deteriorating for years, the Venice Arena could eventually make way for a water park courtesy of the
South County Family YMCA.


a 50-meter competitive outdoor
swimming pool, a family water
park and a playground. In 2005,
the YMCA added a splash park
for children with a variety of
water slides, water cannons and
splash pool.
"It could be five or 10 years, it
may materialize, it may not, but
it's a part of our strategic plan,"
Modzelewski said.
Dialogue
Funding for the project would
be difficult under the current
economic crisis, and Modzelew-


ski said any discussions of the
water park's development are on
hold. He said money is sparse
and the YMCA needs what funds
it has to support existing opera-
tions.
"We're not going to hand out
money right now," Modzelewski
said.
The task force meeting was
the first time the proposal had
been mentioned in a public
forum. Modzelewski was one of
several representatives of local
nonprofits invited by the board
to offer their opinions on eco-


nomic development.
He said he wanted to open a
dialogue with the city about the
project to gauge public interest.
Fond memories
The Venice Arena has been a
part of the city's landscape since
the 1960s when it was built and
used as the winter training facil-
ity for the circus. The circus left
in the early '90s when it deemed
the railroad tracks unsafe and
couldn't persuade the city or
county to repair them. In the

Homeless count in region rises 8.4 percent


BY DONNA WRIGHT
BRADENTON HERALD


Homelessness in Sarasota
and Manatee counties is on the
rise, propelled by the continuing
economic downturn, according
to a survey released Oct. 17.
The annual point-in-time
survey conducted by homeless
advocates in January identified
1,131 as homeless in the two-
county area, an 8.4 percent in-
crease over 2007.
"It's a quiet disaster," said
Richard Martin, director of the
Suncoast Partnership to End
Homelessness. "The fact that it
is happening before our very
eyes makes it difficult to under-
stand."
The challenges are even
greater considering that snap-
shot surveys historically only
capture about 10 percent of the

true homeless population, Mar-
tin said. The January count also
doesn't accurately reflect the
current situation made worse by
the continuing financial crisis.
By comparison, the Suncoast
Partnership manages the Home-
less Management Information
System, a computer-based count-
ing system used by many social
services agencies. From October
2007 through September 2008,
those 20 participating service
providers identified and served
4,344 homeless people in Sara-
sota and Manatee counties.
"And no one has the re-
sources to adequately serve
them," Martin said.
In September alone, the
Manasota 2-1-1 hotline that
serves Sarasota, Manatee and
DeSoto counties tallied 6,268
calls for assistance, an all-time
high.

"Of those calls, 2,428 were
requests for financial assistance
to obtain or maintain housing,"
Martin said.
Martin said the point-in-time
survey offers valuable insight
into the demographics of the
homeless population and gaps
in services to help them.
Results show that many peo-
ple who are regular members of
our community are facing un-
stable living conditions and live
with the fear of not knowing r
where they will sleep any night.
A large portion of these indi-
viduals at least 50 percent-
have no financial resources at
all, while those who do have fi-
nancial resources do not have
enough to obtain housing.

LITTLE KNOWN FAMOUS FLORIDIANS
BY JOE "FASTHORSE" HARRILL














MORGAN BONAPARTE "BONE" MIZELL was born
in 1863 at the Horse Creek settlement in a family
of early Manatee County pioneers. Bone was one
of the most colorful characters in the history of
Florida. He was an uneducated cowboy but had a
sharp wit and a reputation as a notorious
prankster. Bone didn't try to be funny; the things
he said and did just came out that way. He was a
hard drinker and frequent gambler. One morning
Bone woke up in the graveyard after a night of
drinking and said, "Doggone. Here it is Judgment
Day and I'm the first one up." When a friendly
game of poker was raided, Bone claimed that play-
ing poker with chips wasn't gambling. The sheriff
said, "Chips are same as money." So next day,
Bone paid his fine with chips. Bone died July 14,
1921, and the coroner pronounced, "Right now Old
Bone would test at a good 90 proof."The undertak-
er entered the cause of death as "moonshine ...
went to sleep and didn't wake up."

School district health bill: $28 million


The school board
estimates it will
save about $2
million by
switching to
employee-only
coverage in 2009.
BY AUDREY
BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

As part of its budget-
cutting efforts due to an
eroding economy, the
Sarasota County School
Board approved a pared-
down health insurance
plan for the district's cur-
rently insured 5,314
employees at its meeting
Oct. 21.
Dependent coverage paid
for by the district was
taken out of the health
plan, leaving employees
on their own for such cov-
erage. This takes employ-
ees back a few years, since
the dependent premium
subsidy was added to the
district's tab in 2006.
SCSB approved a pro-
jected $28 million to be
paid to Blue Cross/Blue
Shield of Florida for
employee health benefits
beginning in January 2009.
The exact cost of the plan
cannot be computed until
the district sees how many
employees actually enroll
and whether employees


opt for top-
of-the-line
coverage or
less-expen-
sive op-
tions.
The dis-
trict offers
four health
Weidner insurance
options -u
two PPO and two HMO -d
which include high- and
low-level plans in each
option.
After
negotia-
tions bet-
ween the
district and
the insurer,
the calen-
dar year
2009 group
medical Brown
insurance
rates for BCBSF will
increase an average of 5
percent. This figure was
accepted by the insurer
even though the district's
group claim experience,
rating factors and medical
trend (inflation) has been
running between 10 per-
cent and 12 percent,
according to a statement
in the school board's agen-
da.
Al Weidner, deputy
chief financial officer for
the district, said the oper-
ating fund shows
$30,410,000 budgeted for
2008 health insurance pre-
miums for 5,314 employ-
ees and dependents.


Kovach


T h e
school dis-
trict em-
ploys 5,400
employees,
but not all
are enrolled
in the dis-
trict's hea-
lth insur-
ance pro-


gram.
"The projected budget
for 2009 is $28,323,000,"
Widener said.
That number reflects
the plan changes, includ-
ing increased deductibles
on the PPO-high plan and
increased co-pays in all
plans, deleting the depen-
dent coverage and a 5-per-
cent rate increase.
Board member Carol
Todd thanked staff for
achieving a 5-percent
increase, calling it "mini-
mal." BCBSF initially
asked for a 17-percent
increase, but school nego-
tiators got it down to 10.2
percent and, finally, to 5
percent.
"My comments are not
partisan, but what they are
asking a cost of up to
$1,140 a month and
$12,000 a year for our rich-
est plan is scandalous,"
Todd said. "If someone
makes $30,000 to $35,000
a year, it is scandalous."
Board member Frank
Kovach said he agreed.
"But we worked very
hard on this, and just like
you, I got e-mails from


Kleinlein


employees
who said
they can't
afford it,
and the
boar d
needs to
find a way
to make it
doable," he
said. "They


can't understand why we
can't get it (the cost)
down."
Board
chair Kathy
Kleinlein
suggested
they put
the topic
on a work-
shop agen-
da.
Board
Todd member
Caroline
Zucker said she under-
stands the cost of Blue
Cross has increased and
that some employees are
at $1,000 a month.
"But there are some
not- so-rich plans of $1,000
a month out there," she
said.
Board member Shirley
Brown said the district
pays 100 percent of the
employee's coverage, and
related that to her person-
al business.
"We had a 20-percent
increase at our small com-
pany, and we pay 50 per-


cent of
that," she
S, said. "Some
employees
are drop-
ping their
insurance."
"I said 'up
to,' Todd
Zucker said. "The
bottom line
is, when you're at the lower
end of the pay scale, $400 a
month or $1,000 a month,
when prescriptions and
deductibles are up, the
totals are a significant cost
to employees."

Venice Police

implements

'Ride Safe'

initiative
STAFF REPORT

The Venice Police Dep-
artment has developed a
program to enhance bik-
ing safety in the city of
Venice.
According to aVPD press
release, officers will reward
children demonstrating
safe-bicycling practices. Of-
ficers are working with the
Dairy Queen in Venice to
provide free ice-cream
coupons to children who
wear proper safety gear.
According to VPD Capt.
Tom McNulty, children
under 16 caught without
bicycle helmets will be
warned.
"The officer will make
contact and talk to the
child about safety, issue a
warning for the violation
and provide the child with
a 'Ride Safe' contract and a
free safety helmet," Mc-
Nulty said.
"This is a great program
that not only enhances
bike safety, but also pro-
vides a conduit for com-
munication between po-
lice officers and the chil-
dren and parents of our
community," McNulty
said.

Drive-through clinic tests city's disaster response plans


BY JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

Cars lined the parking
lot of the Venice Assembly
of God Church on East
Center Road as people
waited for their drive-
through flu vaccinations
Thursday.
The one-stop clinic,
coordinated by both the
Medical Reserve Corps
and church volunteers,
provided flu shots for $25
or $30, depending on the


patient's medical provider,
and pneumonia vaccina-
tion for $45.
Officials said the drive-
through format is faster
for some than traditional
walk-in clinics.
"The drive-through is a
good option for those who
have difficulty walking or
standing, or who are using
oxygen," Community Adult
Immunization Coordi-
nator Susan Goffard said.
But the convenience
typically limited to fast-


food restaurants is not the
only motivation for the
clinic. The Sarasota Co-
unty Health Department,
working with various
agencies and nonprofits,
tested the county's drive-
through response plan for
dispensing vaccinations in
the event of a pandemic
flu event or other health
emergency.
Officials said that by
conducting the drill on a
small scale, organizers
would have a better idea of


how to handle an actual
emergency. Both Medical
Reserve Corps members
and church volunteers
had the opportunity to
assist in communications,
traffic flow and other
"point of dispensing"
operations.
According to the Cen-
ters for Disease Control,
an average of 36,000 peo-
ple die and more than
200,000 are hospitalized
each year from flu compli-
cations 95 percent of


cases, the CDC said, occur
in people 65 and older.
The CDC urges citizens
to get vaccinated, and said
it is never too late for a flu-
shot.
"Flu season can last
into the spring, so getting
a vaccine later can still
protect against the flu,"
said Dr. Nancy Cox, direc-
tor of the influenza divi-
sion of the CDC.
According to a Sarasota
County Health Depar-
tment press release, it's


also important to take pre-
cautionary measures to
protect yourself and your
family.
"Wash hands often with
soap and water or an alco-
hol-based hand cleanser,
cover a cough or sneeze
with a tissue or the inside
of your elbow, stay at
home when you are sick
and keep sick children
home from school," the
release said.

Sarasota County dismisses Planned Parenthood funding


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

For the first time since
1998, when Planned Parent-
hood began receiving grant
assistance from Sarasota
County, the agency has
been slashed from the list.
Following a public hear-
ing Thursday in which a


small contingent of citi-
zens vehemently opposed
$12,500 proposed for the
organization, the Sarasota
County Commission voted
4-1, with Commissioner
Paul Mercier dissenting, to
redirect those funds to
Community Affordable
Supported Living Inc.,
which provides supported


living for the developmen-
tally disabled.
Commissioners unani-
mously approved the bal-
ance of the grants to 45
agencies that would get
about $7.4 million in fund-
ing, as recommended bythe
Human Services Advisory
Council. The $7.4 million in
funding was down almost


$1 million from last year's
$8.3 million in grants.
Some have considered
Planned Parenthood to be a
controversial choice for
funding, not only because
its operating budget for the
Southwest and Central
Florida region is $8 million
but it also faces strong local
opposition from citizens


such as Denise Rosier,
"I am disgusted with
the sordid, irresponsible
educational agenda of
Planned Parenthood," Ro-
sier told commissioners.
'As the mother of a senior
in one of Sarasota Co-
unty's high schools, I beg
you to keep tax dollars out
of (their) coffers."


Barbara Zdravecky, CEO
of Planned Parenthood,
"Families are one un-
wanted pregnancy, one
sexually transmitted dis-
ease from disaster," Zdra-
vecky said. "'And we help to
provide information that
can allow families to make
good decisions."

pears to have been putting employees
and their dependents off using the ser-
vice," wrote Rita Whitley, benefits coordi-
nator, in an Oct. 6 memo to Interim City


Manager Nancy Wood-
ley.
Local services
To remedy the ap-
parent underutiliza-
tion, she said, the city
sent out a new request
for qualifications to
area providers but
received only two re-
sponses. Neither was
local or "rated suffi-
ciently highly to pur-
sue."
They decided to


approach local service
providers. In its back
yard the city found Dr.
Michael Baer, chair of
the American Psycho-
therapy Association.
According to APA, Baer is a "renowned


psychologist and forensic practitioner ...
largely devoted to serving as an expert
witness in the American judicial system."
He worked as a psychologist in Attica,
the maximum-security prison in New
York. As a psychological profiler and con-
sultant, he helped the
Federal Bureau of In-
vestigation, U.S. De-
Slocation partment of Justice and
other agencies solve
ve been bank robberies, kidnap-
oyees and pings and murders.
On Oct. 14, city coun-
ents off cil gave the go-ahead for
1ice. the city to enter into a
contract with Baer for
Coordinator on-call services. Under
Rita Whitley the contract Baer will
receive $75 per hour for
a minimum of five
hours per employee
who qualifies for his
services. It includes 24-
hour, seven-days-a-week
toll-free-telephone crisis
counseling.

COUNT fromPagelA


ported some form of a disability and, per-
haps most importantly, 47 percent indi-
cated the need of employment, while 16
percent indicated some income.
Volunteers from 42 organizations par-
ticipated this year during the 24-hour
count taken in homeless camps, soup
kitchens and social service agencies that
serve the homeless.
They found 460 homeless individuals
- 41 percent of the homeless population
- living in Manatee County while 655
people, 59 percent, resided in Sarasota.
More than one in five had been a vic-
tim of domestic abuse.
Children younger than 18 accounted
for 14 percent of the total homeless pop-
ulation, while the elderly accounted for 7
percent.
The vast majority of homeless children
were living doubled up in conventional


housing; other living arrangements
included shelters, hotels and living with a
nonparental relative.
The actual numbers are difficult to
assess because homeless parents try to
make their families invisible for fear that
disclosure will mean their children will be
taken from them, Martin said.
"These surveys pose more questions
than they answer," Martin said. "We can
only extrapolate the real population.
Many of the homeless feel shame, they
fear prison, they fear being identified."
Future counts will be based on a com-
puter software system that will count the
homeless as they access help at social ser-
vices agencies, Martin said.
"Over the course of a year, most home-
less people will access a service at some

SUN NEWSPAPERS 7A


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
Commission agreed the
physical and economic
health of the community
were just as important as
its ecological well-being at
the annual Roadmap to
Sustainability workshop.
Sustainability, accord-
ing to the Environmental
Protection Agency, means
"meeting the needs of the
present without compro-
mising the ability of future
generations to meet their
own needs." That is, dis-
covering efficient, holistic
approaches to energy use,
waste disposal, residential
and commercial develop-
ment and stormwater
management, to name a
few.
It was clear, however,
that the commissioners
were looking to broaden
that definition to encom-
pass the economic and
social needs of Sarasota
County residents.
The workshop, facilitat-
ed by general manager of
Natural Resources Amy
Meese, began with a pre-
sentation of an award to
Sarasota County by Terry
Janssen, board member of
the Florida Green Building
Coalition.
"By all measuring stan-
dards we have available,
Sarasota County is certain-
ly the greenest county in
the state of Florida at this
point," Janssen said.
The coalition cited nu-
merous initiatives that
helped the county earn the
designation, including in-
ternal operating practices
and ordinances which
support private sector
green building.
Next, Charles Henry of
the Sarasota County
Health Department led the
commissioners in a dis-
cussion highlighting the
importance of maintain-
ing the physical health of
county residents.
"Smart growth is creat-
ing good choices for our
population," Henry said.
"So if we choose to ride a
bicycle to work, we have a
safe way to do that."
Henry went on to say
not enough of us ride
those bikes to work- or to
school, for that matter. He
pointed out that the num-
ber of overweight children
has doubled over the last
20 years. In addition, 21
million children are cur-
rently diagnosed with dia-
betes while adult obesity
nationwide stands at 34
percent.
"So if you think about
the economic cost of
health care for those chil-
dren who are now going to
be more susceptible to
chronic diseases as they
grow older, it really is a
huge problem," Henry
said, adding that in Sara-
sota County, 19.4 percent
of our youth are over-
weight, 19.9 percent of the
adult population is obese
and prevalence of diabetes
across the county totals 8.7
percent.
Meese next steered the
conversation back to the
commissioners, looking
for either feedback on cur-
rent county initiatives or
other directions staff might
next go.
Commissioner Paul Mer-
cier went first, looking to
open the door for potential
development on other-
wise unused county wet-
lands.
"Instead of trying to
save every wetland that
has no real function, let
that wetland be used in a
different way," Mercier
said.
Commissioner Nora
Patterson suggested eco-
nomic sustainability de-


served attention, especial-
ly in finding ways to grow
the county coffers, which
took a $16 million hit to
help fund the fiscal year


2009
budget.
Com-
mission
Chair
Shannon
Staub
agreed
with Pat-
terson, Staub
suggest-
ing the formation of a coun-
cil of county businesses to
further the idea.
"It would be CEOs of
some of the major compa-
nies, be they a major bank
or a Tervis Tumbler," Staub
said. 'A mix. To really work
with us to see how we can
become more sustain-
able."
Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton gave the county a grade
of B-minus in its sustain-
ability efforts.
"Just because you're
green, it doesn't mean
you're sustainable," Thax-
ton said. "You can build a
bunch of green homes, but
if you build them in the
wrong location, that's not
green development."
Thaxton said it is im-
portant to explore ad-
vancements in medicine


and elder care, two issues
near and dear to county
residents.
Commissioner Joe Bar-
betta gave the county a "B-
plus or A-minus," he said,
in its efforts and urged
county staff to come for-
ward with suggestions for
or constructive criticism of
the commission's actions
on green-related issues.
Staub offered a grade of
B-plus, but said she and
her colleagues did not suf-
ficiently use resources
available to them, such as
reports and data from the
successful green endeav-
ors of other counties
across the nation.
"And I hate the word
sustainability," Staub said.
"It's so overused now. I
(prefer) a 'forever quality
of life.' "
Staub said economic
recovery is the No. 1 prior-
ity facing the county com-
mission and exhorted her
colleagues to reach out
into the community for
"those who can effect
change in the neighbor-
hoods."

County to state: Do no harm


Sarasota looks to sustain


community, economy


The Florida Legislature will soon get an
implicit message from the Sarasota
County Commission: Do no harm to local
government.
County commissioners approved their
2009 Legislative Program Wednesday. The
list of proposals to go before the Leg-
islature reflects their stand on such issues
as economic stimulus, energy indepen-
dence, fiscal responsibility and commu-
nity-based governance, to name a few.
However, according to Commission
Chair Shannon Staub, the most impor-
tant message she and her colleagues
want to send to the Legislature is to let
county government do its job.
"That's our overarching plea," Staub
said. "It means don't shove unfunded
mandates down to us."
Staub said the county commission will
draft a letter to that effect, imploring the
Legislature to take fiscal stock of itself.
"The letter will say when they're look-
ing at finding efficiencies in their depart-
ments, this does not mean look at what
you can pass on to local government,"
Staub said. "It means how about reducing
(your own) work force, travel expenses,
administrative expenses the things we
have done locally."
Messages
Marsha Ho sack, intergovernmental re-
lations manager for the county, summed
up some specific, key messages the coun-
ty commission hopes to deliver to the
Legislature through its priority list:
Work in partnership with the county.

Don't cap county revenue and expen-

Pursue aggressive energy policies.
"The legislative delegation will meet in
November or December," Hosack said.
"We will appear before them, with Com-
missioner Staub most likely, and she will
present those priorities for their informa-
tion."
Hosack said the message Sarasota
County hopes to drive home will be its
ongoing commitment to invest in infra-
structure and keep a strong energy pro-
gram going.
Staub, meanwhile, was optimistic the
Legislature would take a positive cue
from the commission's letter, as well as its
priority list.
"Maybe (when) they read the letter
they'll (get) serious about it, (especially)
when they see the (budget) cuts coming
in," Staub said. "That's all we can ask."

OUR VIEW


Jono Miller for Sarasota County Commission


A short time ago, we gently jabbed
the candidates for the District 1
seat on the Sarasota County
Commission for what we saw to be their
shortcomings on South County issues.
The editorial came after a South
County homeowners' forum, when
some in the audience told us they were
underimpressed by North County can-
didates' answers.
The following day we got a call from
one candidate, Jono Miller, objecting. He
had a firm grasp of southern issues, he
said, and sent us a long, detailed column
to prove it.
We were impressed. First, Miller obvi-
ously did know his stuff. Second, he really
cared that we knew it. (After his column
ran, Republican candidate Carolyn Mason
submitted one that we printed Friday.)
We are recommending Miller for the
commission seat because of his com-


mand of the issues affecting all of
Sarasota County, including those spe-
cific to the southern portion, as well as
his common sense, his thoughtful ap-
proach to questions and his ability to
articulate positions.
Miller, a Democrat, is facing Mason
and independent John Mullarkey in the
race for the North County seat being
vacated by Commissioner Paul Mercier.
Mullarkey has business experience,
but none in elective office.
Mason is an excellent candidate who
has served on the Sarasota City Com-
mission, including a rotating stint as
mayor. She works for Habitat for Hu-
manity and the Salvation Army. She has
a strong background and a good under-
standing of county politics and issues.
Miller has been involved with county
environmental preservation for three
decades. He has been director of the envi-


ronmental studies program at New
College in Sarasota until going on leave
when he officially launched his cam-
paign. Miller conducted an environmen-
tal assessment of the Myakka State Forest
many years ago when the state bought the
property, so he is familiar with the area.
"I feel like I have a relationship with
North Port," he said.
Asked for an analysis of the reasons
for lingering bad blood between North
Port and the county, Miller thought it
could be traced to General Develop-
ment Corp.'s original design of the
sprawling community and the threat its
growth may pose to the city of Sarasota.
"It's not the fault of residents and the
city of North Port that they were dealt a
dirty hand," he told us. He felt that fresh
faces on the city and county commissions
could help forge a new, positive relation-
ship.


Miller also said it was likely that a
new jail would need to be built in the
county, and that North Port could be a
good place for it, especially since it
might become a major employer.
While this would be his first elective
office, Miller has had extensive service
on a variety of county boards. He's been
on on the board of the Environmentally
Sensitive Lands Program, chair of the
oversight committee on voting systems,
and the county Parks Advisory and
Recreation Council.
Miller has a good grasp of details on a
variety of subjects. More than that,
though, we were impressed with his
thoughtful approach and what seemed
to be a natural drift toward balance on
the issues. He will be a positive addition.
We recommend Jono Miller for the Dis-
trict 1 seat on the Sarasota County Com-
mission.


It made sense


at the time


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


You will realize this is
another of those columns
put together as fill while
I'm on vacation. When you
read this, Sue and I will
have just returned from a
week in Virginia.
Newspapers have a
wonderful reputation for
getting things right under
the pressures of deadlines
- and sometimes for a
touch of stupidity for mak-
ing mistakes that are
amusing. My sister-in-law
sent me a batch of head-
lines and goofs that have
appeared in papers. I
could tell they are real as
they were actual copies
from the papers. Here they
are:
"Alton attorney acci-
dentally sues himself."
Even attorneys are getting
hard up for work.
"County to pay $250,000
to advertise lack of funds."
The county was telling how
bad off it is so voters would
raise taxes in the next elec-
tion. This could be like
having two expensive air-
port consultants.
"Volunteers search for
old civil war planes." I
wonder how that came
out.
"Army vehicle disap-
pears." It's the first line of
the story that makes this
funny: 'An Australian Army
vehicle worth $74,000 has
gone missing after being
painted with camouflage."
Here's one for the "Who
would have thunk" depart-
ment: "Caskets found as
workers demolish mau-
soleum."
The subhead is the
thing to read here: "Water-
ford boy, 8, saves' sister's
life"; then the subhead: "I
wouldn't do it again. She's
been a pain this week."
This is also a head-
line/subhead combo: "Ten
Commandments";
"Supreme Court says some
OK, some not."
Then there was the pic-
ture published to help
catch a Boston robber. The
picture is of a man with a
black mask over his whole
head.


Here is another one that
makes you scratch your
head: "Federal agents raid
gun shop, find weapons."
No duh!
I think this editorial
desk needed a little coffee
or smarts or something:
"Statistics show that teen
pregnancy drops off signif-
icantly after age 25."
This is just cruel: "One-
armed man applauds the
kindness of strangers."
Here are some other
headlines I have used over
the years in speeches I
have given. As you can
readily see, there is no
shortage of mess-ups.
"Something went wrong
in jet crash, experts say."
The author of this was
Capt. Obvious.
"Police begin campaign
to run down jaywalkers."
That's one way to solve the
problem.
"Panda mating fails;
veterinarian takes over."
Bet his wife was mad.
"Juvenile court to try
shooting defendant." That's
swift justice.
"If strike isn't settled
quickly, it may last awhile."
Capt. Obvious strikes
again.
"Miners refuse to work
after death." Obviously
they aren't very committed
to their work.
"War dims hope for
peace." It's amazing how
that works. I wonder how
long the staff took to come
up with that headline.
I'd qualify for this one:
"New study on obesity
looks for larger test group."
"Local school dropouts
cut in half." Isn't that dou-
bling the problem?
"Kids make nutritious
snacks." That one's from
the Cannibal Times.
"Man struck by lighten-
ing faces battery charge."
Shocking. Just shocking.
'Astronaut takes blame
for gas in aircraft." Next
time, save it for the space
walk.
Anyway, I hope you
enjoyed these actual head-
line mistakes that, unfor-
tunately, are made every-
day at any newspaper,
including ours. The head-
line is often the last thing
done under the pressure of
deadline and thus some-
times doesn't get the
scrutiny it should get.

Bumper sticker: It ain't
the age, it's the darn mile-
age.

Robert A. Vedder writes
a twice-weekly column in
this paper.


LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Tell us how you plan to help


Editor:
I have become concerned with the Sarasota economy
and our future.
We seem to have developed a public arrogance that is
no longer inviting to relocating businesses or encourag-
ing for those already here to stay. Our decline in student
enrollment is the canary in the coal mine that shows that
our work force is leaving the community at greater rates
than the school system predicted.
Rather than any public discussion of negotiations
with the Boston Red Sox, like was done with the
Cincinnati Reds, a simple press release announced that
everything had ended. Is it not time that there be an
articulated vision from our elected officials as to what
they will do to help reignite our economy?
We make those demands of our candidates for presi-
dent; there is no reason that local elected officials should
not show an equivalent sense of urgency.

Socialism to
the rescue
Editor:
A major cause of the
Great Depression was
greed. FDR knew he could
not change greed, but per-
haps regulations and over-
sight could control it.
For about 80 years con-
servative Republicans have
called regulations socialism.
They have said the beauty
of capitalism is that the
markets will self-regulate.
Ronald Reagan, with
the help of John McCain, a
man who said he does not
understand economics,
and Phil "Stop whining"
Gramm, deregulated the
savings-and-loans. The
result: more than 1,000
S&L failures. The bailout
cost the American people
about $125 billion. Did we
learn from history? No.
Conservatives contin-
ued to strip regulations
and greed drove the mar-
kets. This gave us Enron
and now the total multi-


billion-dollar mess that
could cause a depression.
Isn't it ironic capitalism
must be saved by social-
ism? It seems the Wall
Street motto is, "Heads I
win, tails the people lose."
Santayana's observa-
tion, "Those who cannot
remember the past are
condemned to repeat it,"
seems to apply here.

Alphonse DeFilippo
Englewood
Amendment 2
protects no one
Editor:
We have on the ballot
an amendment that does
absolutely no good and a
great deal of harm. I'm
referring to Amendment 2,
which supposedly pro-
tects the sanctity of mar-
riage but instead could
take rights from unmar-
ried couples, mostly se-
niors, regardless of sexual
orientation, and put gov-
ernment where we least


need it and where it does-
n't belong regulating the
personal relationships of
Floridians.
The question is, do we
need a government amend-
ment to protect our mar-
riages? Or do we need an
amendment that would
have a negative impact on
seniors who form domes-
tic partnerships rather
than remarry after they are
widowed, as well as mil-
lions of Florida families
who form civil unions and
whose health-care bene-
fits and legal protections
would be blocked by this
measure?
Amendments come and
go. This is definitely one to
let go.

Bennett Gross
Venice
Another mistake
by the liberals
Editor:
This bailout is nothing
less than economic affir-
mative action. Our gov-
ernment (liberal Repub-
licans and Democrats)
pressured lending institu-
tions into lowering their
standards and granting
mortgages to unqualified
borrowers. Just like Robin
Hood, robbing from the
haves and giving to the
have nots.
As a result, Americans
in neighborhoods across
this country who have
played by the rules and
have lived within their
means will have to pay.
Robin Hood is alive and
well, thanks to this Demo-
cratic liberal doctrine.

Are those pipes
made of gold?
Editor:
Small companies make
American strong. They
provide employment to
hundreds of thousands of
Americans, enabling them
to make a good living, buy
homes and send their chil-
dren to college.
There has been concern
expressed recently about
the tax consequences to
small businesses that
make more than $250,000
per year. Most of this con-
cern stems from miscon-
ceptions raised by Sen.
McCain with the Joe the
Plumber story.
Small companies are
not taxed on their overall
sales; they are subject to
tax only on profits that
remain after the company
pays its employees and
subcontractors, rent, elec-
tricity, phones, supplies,
tools, fuel and all other
business-related expens-
es. If Joe the Plumber still
takes home more than
$250,000 after paying all of
his employees and all
other expenses, Joe is a
lucky man.

LET 'EM HAVE IT: WHAT DO YOU THINK OF CITY COUNCIL'S PROPOSED REVISIONS TO VENICE'S COMPREHENSIVE PLAN? CALL US AT 207-1111.


Boy, that's some lunch wagon


Lunch hour. I still see a big fire truck that goes from
the fire station on 776 over to Publix to have the employ-
ees get lunch or whatever. I have a concern about how
costly that is. I don't understand if they're paid by the
hour and how they're paid for their lunch hour. My feel-
ing is, if you're on call and you're getting paid through
your lunch hour, you bring your lunch with you. If you
need to get something extra, you send out an employee
in his own auto, not the fire truck. Let's be frugal. These
are very, very difficult times.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Taking the truck on a grocery run to Publix
means it's available to respond to a call without personnel


having to return to the station.

Not fair. The city of
Venice AFSCME union is
in contract negotiations
with the city. It is interest-
ing to note that two years
ago the city paid for the
Evergreen study of wages
comparing city wages with
other local jurisdictions. It
was found that many
employees, not all, were
underpaid, and suggested
that increases be given in
three-year increments to
bring them up to competi-
tive levels. Nonunion em-
ployees, mostly manage-
ment, have to date re-
ceived two of the three
raises suggested in a 4-per-
cent cost-of-living in-
crease for the coming year.
Now these same manage-
ment employees are telling
the union not to ask for the
raises or there will be more
layoffs. Also, after the
study was done, all em-
ployees had to start paying
for health insurance and
were probably using their
increases to help compen-
sate for this while council
members and their fami-
lies get free health insur-
ance. This is not fair to the
union members. Both po-
lice and fire unions have
gotten the increases.
AFSCME is not fighting for
its members if cuts need to
be made in order to give
the rest of the employees
fair compensation. Maybe
someone should look into

Helping hands. This
past Friday, I left for work
at 5:10 a.m. and six blocks
from my house, the car
broke down. Now, in a res-
idential area, there are not
many people up at that
time of the day, but luckily
enough, I was at a four-
way stop and if anyone
came through, they could
help me, right? Wrong.
Even though I was stand-
ing in the middle of the
intersection, with my car
keys in one hand and wav-
ing with the other, two cars
went right past me. The
third car had no choice but
to stop as he came up
behind me and I did not
wave him past. Bless this
gentleman, as he allowed
me to use his cell phone to
call AAA for help, but he
had to move on as he had a
job to reach at Sweetbay in


Sarasota. Thank you, sir.
Then, a sheriff's car pulled
around the block, having
received a call from one of
those first cars. The driver
had gone on to the 7-
Eleven and called in my
plight. Thank you, ma'am.
The next young lady who
stopped pulled behind me
and stayed with me with
her flashers going until the
tow truck arrived. What-
ever water department she
worked for, I thank her
very much, also. Moral of
the story? Good grief, if
you are going out at that
outrageous time of the
morning, have a cell
phone with you. On the
other hand, don't think
that stranded people are
out for a felonious act. I
wasn't, but then, this is a
different era, isn't it?
Chew on this. Food for
thought: Perhaps the new-
est members of the city
council may have made
some early faux pas, but it
pales in comparison to the
people charting Venice's
course prior to their elec-
tion. Where was Mr. Lor-
enzo when the pre-No-
vember 2007 configura-
tion of the council and
mayor did business under
overcast skies? Where was
Mr. Lorenzo when the be-
hind-the-scenes shenani-
gans seemed beyond
criminal by comparison?

Not broken. Who's on
the Venice Economic De-
velopment Task Force, and
why does the Seaboard/
Grove/Warfield area need
a plan? Is this to force out
small businesses so devel-
opers can move in? If the
area were filled with ram-
shackle, abandoned build-
ings then I could under-
stand. I know several peo-
ple who have businesses
in that area and to me that
area is a model of America.
It's a model because you
see a bunch of small busi-
nessmen being entrepre-
neurs. Leave it alone. The
government should not
interfere with something
that isn't broken, and that
area is not broken. It's a
vibrant economic area;
leave it alone. I'm upset
about government having
to poke its nose in where it
doesn't belong. I will do
everything that I can to
discourage any type of
conceptual plan, unless it
is formed by the people
who own businesses there.

S Fish fry: Burton, Archer burn Tarpons 56-26


TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


Burton


sheds


doubts

Trey Burton didn't do
much to showcase his arm
to Comcast Sports South-
east's 5.8 million sub-
scribers Friday against
Charlotte High School.
That's what was so impres-
sive about his perfor-
mance.
Venice High School did-
n't need its junior quarter-
back to go to the air in a
56-26 rout. His legs were
just enough, thank you.
Burton rushed for 195
yards and four touch-
downs at Tarpons Sta-
dium, leading the Indians
to a 7-0 start.
Burton did what he
needed to do to win, and
didn't try to do more. But
he certainly could have.
The University of
Florida-bound quarter-
back went 7-for-9 for 104
yards through the air,
spreading the ball around
to four different receivers.
What about those two
incompletions, Trey? Are
they going to move you to
safety when you get to
Gainesville?
With Venice holding a
35-20 lead late in the first
half, Burton spiked the ball
(incomplete pass I) to stop
the clock with about 10
seconds remaining. Seven
seconds later, he was trot-
ting into the end zone to
give the Indians a 42-20
halftime lead.
Venice got the ball to
start the second half, and
soon Burton made it 49-20
- and the rout was on.
On the following series,
Burton hit senior Dri
Archer down around the
knees on a screen pass, but
the tailback couldn't quite
reel it in (incomplete pass
II). He thought he had it,
but the officials ruled oth-
erwise.
Suffice it to say, Burton
was flawless on the big
stage. This game was sup-
posed to be a duel
between two phenomenal
tailbacks in Archer and
Charlotte sophomore
Mike Bellamy. With just
those two, it would have
been an epic shootout and
probably a much closer
game, but Burton was the
difference maker.
"That's why he's going
to Florida," said quarter-
backs coach Jon Cooley
after the game. "Enough
said."

BY TRIPP MILLER
VENICE SPORTS EDITOR


Venice High School head coach John
Peacock said all the bullets would be in the
chamber for Friday's clash with district-foe
Charlotte High School.
The Indians needed only two rounds, as
junior quarterback Trey Burton and senior
running back Dri Archer made shredding the
Tarpons defense look more like shooting fish
in a barrel.
The backfield duo combined for 355 rushing
yards and all eight Venice touchdowns (four
each) in a 56-26 rout at Tarpons
Stadium.
"(Burton) puts so much
pressure on a defense,
they don't know what
to do," said Venice
quarterbacks coach
Jon Cooley. "They don't
know if we're going to
pass, going to run, going to run Dri,
going to run him, they don't have a clue."
Indeed the Charlotte defense often looked
lost against an offense that was averaging
about 425 yards per game through its first six
contests. The Tarpons (6-1, 2-1 in 5A-11), who
were dominated up front and struggled with
missed tackles, allowed 479 yards of total
offense. They also allowed Burton to go 7-for-9
for 104 yards through the air.
"We did a terrible job of tackling, but they
had a lot to do with that," Charlotte head
coach Binky Waldrop said. "They have a cou-
ple kids that are tough to tackle."
The win puts Venice, ranked No. 7 in the
state by the Associated Press, in sole posses-
sion of first place in District 5A-11. Charlotte,
ranked No. 9, drops to second in the standings.
The game's turning point came very early
on. After a 1-yard touch-
down dive by Burton
put Venice up 7-0 in
the first, the
Indians (7-0, 3-0
in 5A-11) got
a the ball right


GRADING THE INDIANS
Quarterbacks: A+
Perfect might be the best word to
describe Trey Burton's perfor-
mance Friday night. The Tarpons
were simply unable to defend the
Florida-bound quarterback no
matter what he did. They hit him
in the backfield (rarely), and he
would turn it into a gain. When the
receivers were covered, he tucked
and ran. When the blitzes came,
he went over the top through the
air. Burton was so good that back-
up Joe lorio got into the game late
against the state's No. 9 team.

Running backs: A
Dri Archer scored four touch-
downs on 160 yards rushing. For
him, that's about average but
this was an above average oppo-
nent, on the road, on homecom-
ing, on television, with a possible
district title on the line. Archer
undoubtedly turned some heads
around the Southeast(ern
Conference?). Credit fullback




By the numbers...

back when the Tarpons muffed the ensuing
kickoff. Less than two minutes later, Burton
again sprinted 9 yards for a score.
Before the Tarpons had run five plays on
offense, the Indians led 14-0.
Charlotte fought backwith a solid, 57-yard drive
capped by a 19-yard touchdown dash by senior
running back Troy McClary.
Sophomore tailback
Mike Bellamy,
who rushed for
245 yards
and two
touchdowns
-Aitb


on 28 carries,
set up the
score with a
19-yard
scamper two
plays prior.
The Tarpons then blew two golden oppor-
tunities. On the following series, three penal-
ties pinned Venice back 4th-and-28 on their
own 17. The Tarpons muffed Kye Rodger's
punt, giving the Indians a first down at the 46.
Two more penalties left Venice with a 1st-and-
30 at their own 35. Burton and senior wideout
Robert Fordham connected on two straight
passes of 11 and 12 yards, then Burton ran six
more yards to set up 4th-and-i and
Charlotte jumped offsides. The more plays,
including Archer's second score of the night,
made it 21-7 Venice.
Archer and Burton would go on to break
rushing touchdowns of 55 and 65 yards,
respectively, before halftime. Burton
added his third of the game on a 10-
yard burst with just 3.4 seconds
remaining. The Indians had
amassed 334 yards of total
offense and led 42-20 by half-
time.
"It was awesome. It
was all the offensive
line," Burton said. "Me
and Dri, we didnt do
nothing, we just ran.
That's all we did."


Jordan Bailey for some tough
downfield blocking that paved the
way for Archer. Backup Rashad
McRae got into the game earlier
than usual and busted an 11-yard
run.

Wide receivers: A
Senior Robert Fordham had
the closest thing you can have to
a breakout game when the
offense only throws nine passes.
Fordham caught a season-high
three balls for 48 yards and had
no drops. In fact, nobody in this
unit dropped a pass all night.
Sophomore Josh Boyle continues
to come along, grabbing one
catch for 28 yards. He also had a
26-yard gain called back on a
holding call in the backfield.

Offensive line: A+
No sacks. Two tackles for loss.
Rushing yards 375.You really

Charlotte scored twice
in the second quarter
on a pair of one-yard
dives by Bellamy.
Burton and Archer each
scored one more insurance touchdown in the
third quarter. The Tarpons scored their first
passing touchdown of the game during a run-
ning clock in the fourth. Junior quarterback
Kyle Midgett, who was 3-for-8 for 49 yards on
the night, hit junior running back C.J. Morris
for a 17-yard score.
Venice doesn't have much time to celebrate.
The Indians take on the district's No. 3 team,
Manatee High, on Friday. The Tarpons, who
have already defeated Manatee, can still make
the playoffs as the district runner-up with a
strong finish.
"We've got to realize that," Waldrop said.
"This was a tough loss, but we've got to keep
fighting."
Still unbeaten
The entire Venice football program
remained unbeated this week. The junior var-
sity and freshman teams both defeated Port
Charlotte High School Wednesday.
Running back Jihad Williams ran for four
touchdowns in the freshman team's 42-7 win.
Quarterbacks Zach Flerlage and Michael lorio
each added one rushing touchdown.
The junior varsity escaped a defensive bat-
tle 8-0.

he wasn't just blowing smoke.

Sorry guys, somebody has to
get a lower grade (hey, at least
there's no curve). Although they
allowed 245 yards from Mike
Bellamy, that's not all bad consid-
ering 80 of them came on one
play. Save for that play, Bellamy
averaged about 6 yards per carry
when he usually gets more than
9. Ben Steele had his best game
of the season. He sacked Kyle
Midget for a loss of 17 and made
some shoestring tackles that pre-
vented big gains for Bellamy.

Linebackers: A

night thanks to the linebackers.

Defensive backs: A+
The 80-yard run when
Fordham ran down Bellamy from
behind is enough to earn this
grade on its own merit. That's
right, Bellamy ran 80 yards and
didn't even score. Tarpon faithful
in the press box asked them-
selves if that had ever happened
before. Probably not.

Special teams: A
Kicker Ed Delahantey was per-
fect on extra points. Kickoff and
punt coverage teams didn't allow
any big plays. Archer played disci-
plined, allowing the Tarpons to
down the ball instead of trying to
pick it up and make a play.
Charlotte had two mammoth mis-
cues early on a kickoff return and
a punt return, which resulted in
turnovers and points for Venice.

Knights swat Hornets, advance

The Venice Vikings Pop
Warner Football and Cheer
Organization has at least one
team bound for the Division
I North championship.
The Junior Pee Wee
Knights blanked the Cy-
press Hornets 30-0 Sat-
urday afternoon at Letson
Stadium. The postseason
win gives Venice (6-3) a
second shot a rival Sar-
asota Saturday in Cape
Coral.
The Knights never att-
empted a pass and rarely
ran the ball outside. They
used a power running att-
ack with Kyle Johnson (2
TDs) Ben Nicholas (TD)
and Joey Morgan (TD) at
running back.
"Our game plan was to
keep the ball in the middle
and run them over," Kni-
ghts head coach Mike
Trapani said.

led by Kyle Johnson and
Aaron Hackett in the mid-

No. 33 Aaron Hackett pushing his way through the Hornet's


dle, held Cypress to just 56
yards of offense. The Kni-
ghts have allowed just two
offensive touchdowns all
year.
Their vanilla offense
worked against the Hor-
nets, but expect more in
next week's matchup with
the Sundevils.
"We purposely kept it
inside (this week)," Tra-
pani said. "We'll have
more next week, that's for


sure."

Manatee Community College envisions joint-use facility in Venice


FROM MANATEE
COMMUNITY COLLEGE

In its October meeting
at MCC Bradenton, the
Manatee Community Col-
lege District Board of
Trustees approved a re-
vised five-year capital
improvement plan, autho-
rized the college to pro-
ceed with developing an
invitation to negotiate to
solicit bids for employees'
health insurance and
heard a report from Pres-
ident Dr. Lars A. Hafner
concerning progress on
numerous initiatives.
David Wildes, director
of facilities planning, pre-
sented a revised CIP that
reflects a new vision and
ambitious approach to
providing facilities that
will support MCC's pre-
sent and future enrollment
growth.
"We don't want to be
shortsighted in planning
for the future," Hafner
said, noting that partner-
ships and joint-use facili-
ties will play a role in
MCC's expansion and the
pace of future construc-
tion will accelerate.
The CIP includes new
buildings, major remodels
and ongoing renovation
and remodeling projects.
Included in plans for
MCC Bradenton are:
A library renovation
that could increase the
footprint from the present
40,000 square feet to about
65,000 square feet and
might be built as a part-
nership joint-use library
shared with Manatee
County. Hafner empha-
sized that MCC is commit-
ted to maintaining space
for the Family Heritage
House Museum.
Combine technology
functions in one sturdy
building by relocating
classrooms and labs in
outdated Building 19 to a
new or remodeled multi-
story building at the site of
the present Building 6.
This would allow comput-
er equipment to be moved
to more protected high
levels.
Included in MCCVenice
plans are:
A new joint-use facility
with the University of
South Florida
A land trade with
Fourth Quarter that would
exchange unused wetland
owned by MCC for con-
tiguous land that would be
of use to the college.
An additional road to
accommodate continued
growth
Under review
Peg Beck, director of hu-
man resources, reported on
MCC's present health insur-
ance plan through the
Florida Community College
Risk Management Consor-
tium. The board approved
the college proceeding with
developing an invitation-
to-negotiate proposal to
compare other insurance
plans to the consortium
plan.
The bid, review, evalua-
tion, negotiation and se-
lection process will ensue
in November and progress
through 2009. If a new
insurance plan is selected,
it will not be effective until
2010. The process includes
for the options and con-
siderations to be taken
back to the board and pre-
sented to MCC employees.
"This review does not
impact the present insur-
ance plan or open enroll-
ment decisions being
made for 2009," Beck said.
"The reason we're re-
viewing this is to make cer-
tain that our employees
have the best insurance
available at the best rate,"
Hafner said. "We want
MCC employees to have


benefits that are worthy of
this institution."
The goals of the insur-
ance review proposal will
be to:
Provide various insur-
ance options at more rea-
sonable cost to college and
employees and dependents


Provide choice for em-
ployees' and retirees' indi-
vidual varied needs
Provide incentives for
prevention and wellness
initiatives to improve
health and reduce insur-
ance costs
Provide state-of-the-


art third-party administra-
tion, enrollment and com-
munication models.
USF dealings
In other board news,
Hafner reported on several
items regarding USF:
The agreement was


finalized with USF to rent
space at MCC Venice for
the next two years.
Dr. Arthur Guilford,
the CEO of USF Sarasota-
Manatee, will be the
speaker for MCC's Decem-
ber commencement.
The outdated 2+2


agreement with USF is in
the process of being re-
vised to remove MCC's
commitment not to pro-
vide four-year degrees or
invite other partners to the
college, and to allow USF
to teach a selection of 100-
and 200-level classes.


The board approved
Hafner's request to amend
the letter of intent to offer
baccalaureate degrees to
include fire science after
the local fire chief ex-
pressed interest in MCC
providing a four-year de-
gree in this field.

CLEARING THE RAIL

BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER
The pavement is smooth while traveling the 1.3 miles north on Auburn Road from East Venice
Avenue.
It takes only moments to arrive at Lea Farm Drive and head down the lightly graveled road. After
passing beneath a sunlit arch of oak leaves, the vast rural landscape comes into view.
FoxLea Farm is horse country. Its owners produce equestrian events and lease the 46-acre facil-
ity for horse shows. According to its Web site, it requires a two-day event with 75 stalls rented as a
minimum contract for a horse show. It provides a 30,000-square-foot lighted, covered show arena;
a spectator pavilion and bleachers; three large sand warm-up rings; three large sand show rings;
one large grass grand prix ring; two show offices; vendor and concession areas and more.
Those desiring to see the grace and beauty of horse and rider gliding over the rails in the
Hunter/Jumper category and other equestrian trials are welcome. The shows are open to the pub-
lic for a $5 fee.1
Riders compete in both English and Western saddle events.

AQHA Show
Fox Lea Farm held an American Quarter Horse Association Show Sept. 19-
21 when riders displayed their skills in dress and handling and
their horses' skills in various categories.
The riders paid a fee to enter the competition and events
were judged. Many riders hoped to rack up enough points at
the local show to qualify them to enter world competitions.
Others, like Victoria Graham, 18, were doing it for "fun," she
said. She showed in
the Youth Working











at, WXk






Hunter/Jumper category and Equitation over the fence. Wikipedia describes equitation as a
rider's position on horseback and the ability to ride correctly.
Last year, Graham and her horse, Naturally Broke (aka Spencer), won a trophy at
regionals, a silver cup. It was the second time for the pair, and if they win a third time she
can keep the trophy. She had to give it back after the first and second wins. Next year, she
will get to ride in the Amateur class.
Quarter horse shows are frequent at Fox Lea Farm and have been since its
inception in 1983. This year, 28 shows were planned with the last one scheduled for
Nov. 27-30. Visit www.foxleafarm.com for a schedule of events.
On Friday, Sept. 19, the show was delayed from its 8 a.m. start time because a
heavy rain left pools of water on the field. Some horses were exercised in the prac-
tice ring while waiting for the mud to dry and the performance arena to be cleared.
The first jump was made at about 9:45 a.m.
Beverly Smith, gate steward, used a walkie-talkie to communicate with
the judges and other staff members who were in different locations around
Ithe show ring.
"Butch, is your judge ready?" Smith said into the walkie-talkie.
SShe said her job is to make sure the horses run the ring.
"I have to announce the number (of the rider) to the ring steward and
to the judges," she said.
-A good jumper will have its front legs together when it jumps, said Kim Farrell,
S business manager for Fox Lea Farm. Her husband, Clay, with Prince Farms, was
showing at least three horses during the show. Prince Farms, owned by Anne and
Chester Prince, had 17 horses at the show.

Changes
Farrell said there have
been some changes in the
quarter horse shows over
the years.
"Now, the quarter
horse is doing English
jumping and cross-
ing over to
Western," she
said. They used
to be just
Western.
Peg
Edmonson,
owner of Fox
Lea Farm, said
she has seen !
changes in the
style and quality of
horse over the last
40 years. S
The quality of
the horse is considered
during the conformation
process that goes on just
before an event.
Conformation refers to
the look of the horse, how
it is built, according to


Farrell. The judges are
looking for the quarter
horses to conform to what
is standard for the breed,
including such qualities
as legs straight, big hind
quarters and a big jaw.
During the Hunter/
Jumper show,
judges are looking
for the horse to
have a head
down gait, a
compact cantor
and front legs
together when
p it jumps the
gates.
AQHA
started in
1940 by a
theO l ooes group of
Jthe'O vaiu horsemen
and ranchers from
the southwestern U.S., ac-
cording to Wikipedia.
They were dedicated to
preserving the pedigrees
of their ranch horses.
Farrell said AQHA has
the largest membership of
the various horse associa-


tions.
"In AQHA, there are
250,000 members show-
ing and breeding to pre-
serve the breed," she said.
Volunteering
Families of horse
exhibitors and local horse
enthusiasts often ask how
to become involved with
horse shows. Volunteers
must be age 16 or older
and usually help in non-
hands-on positions. Inter-
ested persons can send an
e-mail to foxleafarm@aol.
com for information.

Tennis star, camera


company raise money


for breast cancer


FROM NAPSA


Did you know that an
estimated one in eight
American women will be
affected by breast cancer
in her lifetime? And these
women are not alone;
men also get breast can-
cer, but it is far less com-
mon. This is why tennis
superstar Maria
Sharapova has teamed up
with Canon USA to launch
its "Pink" campaign,
which helps raise aware-
ness of cancer, including
the introduction of a spe-
cial-edition pink cam-
era/printer bundle kit.
To help generate aware-
ness for this cause, the
company has created spe-
cial-edition "bundles,"
available while supplies
last. Each bundle includes:
A PowerShot SD1 100
IS Digital ELPH camera in
pink melody
A SELPHY CP760
Compact Photo Printer,
also in pink melody
A pink ribbon charm
A mammogram
reminder magnet.
The company's "Pink"
campaign celebrates
Canon USAs 10-year sup-
port of the American
Cancer Society's Making
Strides Against Breast
Cancer. In the month of
October, Canon USA will
contribute $150,000 to the
American Cancer Society
in recognition of breast
cancer awareness month,
which will benefit the
society's breast cancer

Dr. Nol6 Crosby, Au.D.
Q: Dr. Crosby, what is the LACE
program?
A: LACE is an acronym for Listening
And Communication Enhancement.
LACE is an interactive computerized
aural rehabilitation program that has
already helped thousands of people
who live with some degree of hearing
loss increase their listening skills by
40%. Just as physical therapy can help
rebuild muscles and adjust movements
to compensate for physical weakness
or injury, LACE can develop skills and
strategies that can help compensate for
those situations when hearing is inade-
quate. LACE has also been proven to
help hearing aid users become more
comfortable hearing the new sounds
their hearing instruments bring. We
don't really hear in our ears; we hear in
our brain. Hearing aids can help a per-
son detect softer sounds, but they don't
necessarily provide good listening
skills. LACE works on Windows XP,
Vista and Apple OSX 10.4 or newer
and now on home DVD players.

Discover European charm in Drazil's eanta Catarina region


BY SUSAN MCKEE
GUEST WRITER


There's more to Brazil
than Carnival in Rio de
Janiero and boating excur-
sions up the Amazon
River, but you need to
look beyond the iconic
destinations.
Do you like
traveling in Italy
or Germany? What
about jeep trekking
across rugged terrain
with magnificent
views? Is sampling dif-
ferent wines or tasting
micro-brewed beer
something you like to do?
Is going somewhere your
friends have never been
appealing?
Add to those lures the
lack ofjetlag (you're flying
within, not across, what
are U.S. Time Zones), and
Santa Catarina, about an
hour's flight south of Sdo
Paolo, may be just the
ticket.
Never heard of it? It's
virtually undiscovered by
American tourists. That
means you're likely to find
fewer people who speak
fluent English but the
tourism infrastructure is
extensive because it's a
popular destination for
Brazilians.
Take Florianopolis,
Santa Catarina's capital,
for example. It's situated
on Santa Catarina Island,
connected by a trio of
bridges to the Brazilian
mainland. Located just
south of the Tropic of
Capricorn, it has a sub-
tropical climate like Cen-
tral Florida (which is just
north of the Tropic of
Cancer). The island has 42
named beaches, ranging
from mere slivers of isolat-
ed sand to vast stretches
where fishermen share
the shore with sunbathers.
In town, don't miss the
mercado (filled with fish,
meat and produce ven-
dors) and stop by the city's
old town square, Praca XV
de Novembro. Here, you'll
find the legendary 100-
year-old fig tree. Enjoy the
leafy shade as you circum-
navigate its enormous
trunk counterclockwise
seven times. Now, your
future good fortune in
wealth and romance are
assured!
The province of Santa
Catarina was settled by
Europeans primarily
Italians and Germans -
and their influence re-
mains strong. In Pomer-
ode, for example, where
almost all of the original
settlers in the 19th Cen-
tury came from Pomer-
ania, 90 percent of the
population still speaks
German.

to the Planalto Serrano, a

about 140 miles from
Florianopolis, is a region
with heavily forested can-

The province has sev-

FINE WHINES


Truth is the victim


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


I got a letter to the edi-
tor from a woman in South
Carolina supporting John
McCain for president.
We're not going to print it
- not because it endorses
McCain, which many let-
ters we have printed have
done, but because we
don't print form letters.
Obviously, I wouldn't be
writing a column to tell
you that. What I felt com-
pelled to write about is
what she says about Bar-
ack Obama. It's a symp-
tom of what's wrong in
politics today.
Obama has been the tar-
get of rumors about every-
thing from his religion to his
lapels. They keep making
the rounds despite the
number of times they've
been debunked byindepen-
dent sources. That, however,
does not matter to this
woman, who wrote: "what is
worrisome is that these al-


legations even exist, wheth-
er they are true or not."
Sorry, ma'am, but you
couldn't be more wrong.
It matters very much
whether what is said about
any candidate any per-
son is true, especially in
the Internet age, when
false "facts" can circle the
globe in less time than it
takes to make them up.
Surely you remember
the 2000 Republican pri-
mary in your own state -
the one in which Bush's
team spread the despica-
ble rumor that McCain's
adopted daughter was
actually his illegitimate
love child. Are you voting
for McCain in spite of that
rumor, even though "what
is worrisome is that these
allegations even exist"?
I can't think of a rumor
about Obama that some-
one couldn't have started
about McCain. To some
people they might seem
more plausible about Oba-
ma than McCain, but if all


that matters is that they
exist, plausibility isn't an is-
sue either. I suspect, though,
that if McCain were being
smeared in a similar man-
ner this woman would then
think that truth is impor-
tant. And that's hypocrisy.
Character certainly is a
factor in elections, but vot-
ers need to show some
character, too.
Vote for a candidate be-
cause of what he or she says
about the issues. Vote based
on leadership ability. Vote
based on experience.
Vote for the best candi-
date, not against the one
who is the subject of "allega-
tions" that you know might
not be true but that fit your
own politics or prejudices.
That's what you want
everyone else to do, right?

It's a warming world for walrus, too


LARRY ALLEN
COLUMNIST


I'd like to introduce you
to a young walrus I met on
one of my far northern
treks. Though still a
youngster, this huge fellow
was alone, parentless on a
Pacific shore. Newborn
walruses weigh 150-200
pounds at birth. They stay
with their mothers for two
to three years and contin-
ue to nurse until they
develop tusks, after which
the youngsters can forage
for themselves. Walruses
use their tusks as sort of
"sled runners" along the
bottom of the sea. Their
brush-like whiskers are
sensitive and help them
search for food.
The fact that this indi-

vidual without tusks was
alone is, therefore, signifi-
cant, no matter what size
he might be.
He wasn't yet able to
fend for himself.
Walruses forage shallow
seabeds for crabs, worms
and clams, though they
also have been known to
eat seals and small whales.
They'll consume 100-200
pounds of food each day,
perhaps as many as 3,000
to 6,000 clams at a feeding.
It takes a lot of "fuel" to run
a "machine" that weighs 2-
2.5 tons! They must rest
between eating forays.
And that's why they de-
pend on sea ice.
Today, without the
availability of normal ex-
panses of sea ice, walruses
are finding themselves far-
ther and farther from their
feeding grounds. Pack ice
shrank to 1.65 million
square miles in 2007, the
smallest since satellite
measurements began, De-
fenders of Wildlife report-
ed. The organization went
on to point out that pack
ice vanished completely
from the Chukchi Sea be-
tween Alaska and Russia

that same summer.
Reports this year indi-
cate that sea ice reached
its second-lowest level in
30 years.
In Alaska, between
Point Hope and Barrow
(that's a 300 mile stretch),
walruses gathered in large
numbers on land where
they had not been seen
previously. This unique
phenomenon can be
directly attributed to the
loss of sea ice.
The concentration of
walruses along coastal
Alaska reduces their ac-
cess to clams and other
food, and the food re-
sources they can access
are likely to be depleted
more quickly. Walruses are
also more vulnerable on
land to human hunters
and polar bears.
Certainly, the long
swim to shore, and the
longer swims required to
find food, will both take
their toll on walrus popu-
lations.

changing their world fast-
er than they can adapt," a
Defenders of Wildlife offi-
cial stated.

And then there's the
danger to walruses from
increased shipping in
northern seas because of
the loss of sea ice. Or,
threats to their existence
from increased oil and gas
exploration off the coast of
Alaska.
Pacific walruses need
their platform of sea ice
from which to forage for
food, on which to raise
their calves, and on which
to rest between dives.
Without sea ice, calf mor-
tality has shot up. My
young walrus acquain-
tance has made it so far,
but will he be able to grow
up to a fully-tusked mem-
ber of walrus society? I do
hope so.

Sertoma shares food, wine and friends


CINDY GNEGY
COLUMNIST


The Sertoma Club of Venice
held its popular three-day
annual Venice Wine Fest to
compliment the festivities of
the Women's Club ofVenice's
Sun Fiesta. The Sun Fiesta
began in 1973 as a community
get-together before the start of
tourist season.
This year the weather was
spectacular for the casually
elegant wine fest. Under the
cover of two large tents, area
restaurants presented tastes
of their flavorful and interest-
ing cuisine. Wines from


regions around the world
were chosen by Richard
Brower of Venice Wine and
Coffee to complement the
food.
"Everybody raved about
it," said Sherrey Welch. "It
was the most successful and
largest event so far."
"It's all about the people,"
said Don Hay, committee
chair for the event. "Good
wine, good food and great
friends."
Hay said the evening was
about keeping the focus on
the people. The events com-
mittee made a commitment
to limit the number
of tickets sold to
be able to keep
that focus. The
goal was to sell
400 tickets and
that's exactly
how many
were pur-
chased.
The
ambiance,
aromas
and
laughter


drew many people that had
come downtown for the
evening to ask if they could
join the fun. There were some
disappointed faces, but many
vowed to purchase tickets
next year.
Lori Kowalski said many
people had suggested holding
the wine fest twice a year
because it is such an enjoy-
able evening.
Those in attendance had a
chance to vote for their
favorite restaurant and out of
the twelve restaurants partici-
pating, the Silver
Sipper Award was
given to Bushido's
Sushi Bar and
Japanese Cuisine.
The commu-
nity frol-
icked in
i the


streets of our fair town enjoy-
ing the hard work and com-
bined efforts of the Sertoma
Clubs to coordinate yet anoth-
er successful Wine Fest and
Sun Fiesta. So let the tourist
season begin we're ready
for the flocking snowbirds.
Touring the point
Historic Spanish Point held
a native plant seminar and
tour on Oct. 16.
"The weather was perfect
for touring the 30-acre site
and learning about the
unique native plants that give
the museum its natural char-
acter," said Laura Dean, mar-
keting director for Spanish
Point.
After seeing the plants in
their natural environment
and walking through the
Butterfly Garden, attendees
were treated to an exclusive
native plant sale. Another
seminar will be held on Feb. 5
and will feature Mrs. Palmer's
gardens and some of the
plants and trees introduced
by the Palmer family who had
a nursery on the site.

- Six Steps to Success -


1 Tired of trying to make your way around
that old blender, bassinet, those bikes and boxes of
cast-off clothing? Schedule a garage sale to convert
those extra items into cash.


2. Ask your friends if they want to join in. More
merchandise means more shoppers and more money
for everyone.


3. Clean and polish your items. Fold clothes
neatly and arrange them by size and gender. Group
small pieces (like jewelry) together into plastic bags
so they're easy to price and display.


4e Arrange for plenty of tables and hanging
items so you can display everything prominently.
When it's time, set up your sale so people can move
around easily.


5eMake a list of your best items, and then call
The Sun Classified to schedule your ad. Your ad rep
can help you create an ad that's sure to get customers
calling!


a Through The Sun Classified, you'll send the
news of your sale to thousands of potential buyers.
So, get out your change box and get ready to sell!

Feeling Fii Page 2 DIE/N/C The Sun Sunday, Ornober 26, 2008, 2008


Each year, about 2500 infant
deaths are attributed to SIDS, or
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
SIDS describes the sudden,
unexplained death of an infant
younger than 1 year of age and is
the leading cause of death in
infants under one year of age. As
the name implies, SIDS occurs
with little or no warning.
Research has provided several
risk factors, which when
addressed, can reduce the risk of
SIDS for your infant. These risk
factors include several which
need to be addressed during
pregnancy: smoking, alcohol or
drug abuse and poor prenatal
care. Babies bom prematurely,
with low birth weight, or to
mothers under age 20 are also at
risk. Additionally, babies are at
risk for SIDS if they are exposed
to smoke; sleep on their stom-
ach; or become overheated from
excessive bedding or sleepwear.
In 1992, the American
Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) rec-
ommended all babies under 1
year be placed on their back to
sleep. A campaign, Back to


NANCY
KRAUS
Executive Director


Sleep, was ini-
tiated by the
AAP, the
National
Institute of
Child Health
and Human
Development,
Maternal and
Child Health
Bureau/HRSA,
and


Association of
SIDS and Infant Mortality
Programs. Since then, infant
deaths due to SIDS have
dropped by over 50 percent.
Obviously, all parents must
understand the need for their
infants to be laid Back to Sleep
for naps and at night, every
time. Here are some other cam-
paign recommendations to help
reduce your baby's risk of SIDS:
Place your baby on a firm
sleep surface, such as on a safe-
ty-approved crib mattress, cov-
ered by a fitted sheet. Never


HEALTHSTART


place baby to sleep on pillows,
quilts, sheepskins, or other soft
surfaces.
Keep soft objects, toys, and
loose bedding out of your baby's
sleep area. Don't use pillows,
blankets, quilts, sheepskins, or
pillow-like crib bumpers in your
baby's sleep area. Keep all items
away from baby's face.
Do not allow smoking around
your baby.
Keep your baby's sleep area
close to, but separate from,
where you and others sleep.
Your baby should not sleep in a
bed or on a couch or armchair
with adults or other children.
Think about using a clean dry
pacifier when placing your
infant down to sleep, but don't
force the baby to take it. If you
are breastfeeding your baby,
wait until your child is 1 month
old or is used to breastfeeding
before using a pacifier.
Do not let your baby overheat
during sleep. Dress your baby in
light sleep clothing, and keep
the room at a temperature that
is comfortable for an adult.

Avoid products that claim to
reduce the risk of SIDS because
most have not been tested for
effectiveness or safety.
Do not use home monitors to
reduce the risk of SIDS. If you
have questions about using
monitors for other conditions,
talk to your health-care
provider.
Every situation is different,
and every baby is unique. So, it
is important to discuss risk fac-
tors with your baby's pediatri-
cian. He may have other specific
recommendations. And, make
sure grandparents, sitters, and
others who may watch your
baby understand these recom-
mendations, and especially, the
importance of "Back to Sleep."
For more information about
the "Back to Sleep" campaign
visit www.nichd.nih.gov/SIDS
For additional information on
parenting and your baby, call a
Healthy Start Care Coordinator
at 941-613-0909. Prenatal care
services are supported through
a grant by United Way of
Charlotte County.

CEC Optician's act of kindness paints a bright

future for artist Charles Peck


For local artist Charles Peck, it was an incredible stroke
of bad luck. In the midst of painting a mural on the out-
side of Dean's South of the Border restaurant in Punta Gorda,
Peck damaged his eyeglasses. "I was navigating my eight-foot
dingy to my work site and managed to mangle them pretty
badly. The frame was all bent up and I smashed one of the
lenses," explains Peck. "I make a living with my eyes and
hands. I was in trouble."
Enter Alan Rubin, Community Eye Center optician at our
Punta Gorda location. Shortly after the incident, Rubin, Peck's
optician for the past eight years, was eating lunch at Dean's
and ran into Peck. "I asked him right away what happened
to his eyeglasses," Rubin says. "I knew that he was probably
short on cash because he doesn't get paid until he finishes a
job. And I knew he would have a hard time finishing the job
without good eyeglasses. His situation immediately struck a
chord with me."

Rubin didn't hesitate to save the day, according to Peck.
"I wear progressive lenses (see sidebar) so they're not cheap.
Still, Alan offered to fix them even though he knew I couldn't
pay him," he says. "He brought them back the next day, good
as new. I was absolutely shocked and could not have been


more grateful."
It was simply the right thing to do, says Rubin. "I knew
how this would affect his livelihood. He never would have
asked me to do it. But I had the ability to help him and I was
glad to do it," says Rubin. "He told me that he would repay
me one day, but I assured him that his sincere gratitude was
more than thanks enough."

Peck is sure he would not get that kind of service at a dis-
count chain. "There is something to be said for the smaller
shops. You get people like Alan taking care of you," he says.
"Plus, the product you get is really a quality one. They take
pride in their craftsmanship. As an artist, I can appreciate
that."
It's all in day's work, says Rubin. "Our patients are like fam-
ily to us. If we can go the extra mile to help one of them, we
are pleased to do it."

What are progressive lenses?
It happens gradually. Then, one day, usually after age
40, patients notice that they can't read fine print easily like
they used to do. It's a condition called presbyopia that com-
monly affects those over 40. That's the time for progressive
lenses, also known as no-line bifocals, explains Rubin.
"Progressive lenses don't have any visible lines, which
allows for a more youthful and less distracting appearance.
The best part, however, is that they provide wearers with
the ability to see distance, intermediate and close-up," he
says.
Community Eye Optical offers the latest versions of pro-
gressives, including Varilux PhysioTM and Varilux Physio
360TM with W.A.V.E. TechnologyTM. "These versions have
taken progressives to the next level, offering wearers amaz-
ing new levels of sharpness and comfort," says Rubin.

Who should know I have lung cancer?


November 4, 2007
When I first learned I had
lung cancer, I was devastat-
ed. This kind of a diagnosis
and the prognosis feels like
a death sentence. Thing is, I
did not commit any crime.
Smoking was an addiction. I
could not quit try as I did
(many times). I wish I had
never started. I don't mind
being a hypocrite in telling
my kids not to smoke.
Anyway, I gambled and lost,
and now I have to pay the
price.
The first thing I had to
deal with after the diagnosis
was "who to tell." My wife
and I talked about this a lot.
I am somewhat well-known
in this little community
because of my civic involve-
ment, the fact that I am
marketing my name and
taking care of hundreds of
households. I don't know
what my long-term
prospects are. Luckily, a few
years ago, I took on a young
man as a partner in my
practice. I say luckily
because, not only is he
doing a good job in helping
me sell our services, he is in
a position to easily take over
my practice and serve my
existing clients if I am dis-
abled.
The uncertainty of what
happens next makes decid-
ing who to tell all the more
difficult. How sick am I
going to become? Will I be
able to work during treat-
ment? If treatment does not
work, what happens next?
How will the disease
progress? At what point will
I not be able to effectively
take care of business? What
should I tell people who are
thinking of engaging me
about my health? Am I
morally obligated to tell
them I have cancer? Should I
tell my clients why I am not
in the office on Fridays


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


(because of chemo), or
should I let them continue
to believe that I am out golf-
ing.
My wife and I concluded
together that it is best that
we keep this matter private
and tell people on a "needs
to know" basis for now. The
only people who know about
this at the moment outside
of my family are my partner,
my branch and complex
manager, and the southern
regional manager. If I am
going to be missing a lot of
work, I needed my partner
to know so that he can
cover. The office manager


should know why I am not
in the office, and I needed
the branch manager to
know, because he is my P&L
reporting relationship. The
complex manager should
know because he is the one
that hired me and I had
immediate questions about
my employment agreement.
I have not told anyone else
in the office.
As far as having to reveal
my condition to my clients, I
have concluded I would
rather not for now. Frankly I
don't know what good it
would do to tell them. While
my long term prognosis is

not very good as a general
statistical measure, (only a
15 percent chance of living 5
or more years) the fact of the
matter is that the statistics
reflect a population that is
significantly older than I am.
And an older person would
likely have other complicat-
ing conditions.
I do not have diabetes,
COPD or other lung disease
or breathing problems, etc.
This helps me. On the other
hand, I am at Stage IIIA, I
have lymph node involve-
ment and the tumor I have
is inoperable. That works
against me.


Realistically, I think I have
a good one-year survival
rate and only a fair 5-year
survival rate. There is no
need to rush out and tell the
world. I have time. In six
months, I will know better. If
at that time the prognosis is
the worst case scenario, I
will have come up with
some sort of transition/suc-
cession plan. My main con-
cern is that, while I am
being treated, my clients are
being properly served.

in Medicine (VIM) Alliance. VIM is
an organization whose mission is to
promote and guide the develop-
ment of a national network of free
clinics and utilizes retired medical
professionals and lay volunteers to
care for the insured within a culture
of caring.
The national statistics are stag-
gering. There are 47 million people
in this country without medical
insurance. Another 25 million are
underinsured, up 60 percent in just
four years with middle and higher
income families comprising most of
that increase. Without adequate
health insurance, emergency rooms
become a default.
According to Dr. Mark Asperilla,
co-medical director of the St.
Vincent de Paul Community Health
Care Clinic, "The value of our free
clinic in both human and eco-
nomic terms cannot be overstat-
ed. In an informal survey recently
conducted, 44 percent of our clients
said they would not have sought
care if our clinic had not been avail-
able, and 25 percent stated that they
would have had to seek care in an
emergency room. An astounding 80
percent of those surveyed also indi-
cated that they had delayed seeking
care because they were unable to
pay for services received."
The SVDP Community Clinic
alleviates pressure off of congested
hospital emergency rooms in the
region which are required by law to
treat anyone with an injury or ill-
ness.
Emergency Room care costs an
estimated six times more than treat-
ment in a physician's office. For
many of the poor and uninsured,
the emergency room is their only
current option for primary care,
even though their complaints may
actually be chronic in nature.
For further information on the
clinic, please call Lauren Schmidt,
Director ofDevelopment, at 258-
9570 or e-mail cdo@svdpchcare.org.

Conflict can be viewed as a gift


Dear Dr. Joan: Although
it was so different at
the beginning, my
marriage is nowhere, now.
There are arguments so often,
I don't want to say anything.

Thank you for having the
courage to comment on the
changes you have noted in
your relationship. You are
aware of a different environ-
ment in your marriage, now,
and are, perhaps wondering
what happened to bring
about this "change in the
weather."
Often in a new relationship,
partners want to put their
best foot forward, or other-
wise "soft pedal" their differ-
ences. All of us has been
taught to be kind and nice to
those we care about. We have
been cautioned not to hurt
anyone's feelings.
In clinical circles, these
directions are often spoken of
as "The tyranny of nice." We
can become so focused on
"not rocking the boat," that
we don't get to express when
we are and in fact, are
doing a great deal of pretend-
ing in our relationship.
At this point, something
needs to happen to get back
on track so that there is truth
in the relationship. Enter con-
flict. The only conflict
Hollywood shows us is one
that gives comic relief. The
rest of the movie is "smooth
as silk." We believe our rela-
tionships should be like this,
too. We forget that Hollywood

is fantasy-
land and
that we're
trying to get
beyond illu-
sions to real-
ity in our
relationship. JOA
In the ASHKIN, EdD,
beginning of LCSW, RN
a relation-
ship, we sit
in the back of the bass boat,
or visit museums, try sky div-
ing or mountain climbing to
be with our partner. We often
do them because we think we
should, or because it is
expected, or to please our
partner. Then, perhaps, the
pattern is set. But, still, it is
something we really don't
want to do.
This is where a decision
must be made. This is also


when we entertain all the folk
wisdom about why we
shouldn't say a thing. Yet, two
paths are open to us. We can
continue pretending. Or
make a decision to say our
truth.
If we say our truth, we risk
it being labeled as criticism or
being difficult. Relationships
are a risk. In fact, there are
those in the field of marital
counseling who believe that
the whole purpose of rela-
tionships is to face our fears.
Part of your not wanting to
say anything at the moment
in your relationship, may be
because of your fear that it
will lead to yet another argu-
ment. Be brave. Give the gift
of your truth to your partner,
Take a big deep breath and
say something like, "I'll have
to admit going to art muse-
ums doesn't do a thing for
me. But, I'd like to spend time
with you doing something we


both enjoy." Your partner may
be disappointed. But, that's
OK. Disappointment is just a
part of a full range of human
emotions. You haven't done
anything wrong. Now, you
can both dialogue about the
choices you have. If you need
assistance, family therapists
can offer help in conflict reso-
lution.
Dr Joan Ashkin, EdD, LCSW,
RN, is a Certified Sexologist


specializing in anxiety, depres-
sion, sexual concerns, elder
issues and family conflict reso-
lution. She is part of a group

Can adults suffer from attention deficit disorder?


Dear Dr. K,
My son was recently diag-
nosed as having ADD.
Looking over the list of
symptoms, I found I also had
many of them, even though
I'm an adult. I thought kids
grew out of that problem. Is
it possible I have it too?
"Losing Things" in Punta
Gorda

Dear Losing,
Often, ADD (Attention
Deficit Disorder) runs in
families. A child is diagnosed
and then dad or mom dis-
covers that he or she has
similar symptoms (or vice
versa). Many times adults are
surprised about this, but not
too much. They have fre-
quently wondered why they
do things 'differently' from
others. When they find they,
too, have ADD, they are
relieved to find an explana-


tion to their
behaviors.
ADD's hall-
mark symp-
toms are a
decreased
attention
DR. STAN span (day-
KAPUCHINSKI dreaming, los-
ing things),
being easily
distracted and
hyperactivity for the 'hyper-
active' type of ADD.
There is also a type where
the daydreaming (inatten-
tion) is the prominent symp-
tom (ADD-Inattentive Type).
This occurs more in women.
Those with ADD have
behaviors like always losing
things (I had a patient who
always bought five sets of
car-keys because she always


loses them). They are forget-
ful ("what did I come in here
for?") much, much more
than average. They daydream
a lot or they flit from one
thing to another, and are dis-
organized and never get
things done.
People with ADD are noted
for their undone piles of
'things to do.' They start but
rarely finish things. They
interrupt others or finish
sentences for them. A wife of
someone with ADD will say,
"You never listen to me" to
her husband because he
can't keep his attention on
the conversation. If they
read, they usually scan an
article and rarely get into it.
Hyperactivity speaks for
itself. They are always on the
go. Many times, boredom
comes very easily. They may
do daredevil things (like hav-
ing many speeding tickets)
and impulsively speak before
they think. They also might
be easily bored in relation-
ships and be in and out of
them. Impulsivity like reck-
less buying is often common.
The old notion was that
teens grew out of this prob-
lem, but as many as 50 per-
cent or more do not.
Sometimes, the inattention
persists, but not the hyperac-


tivity. Very often, women
with this problem go undiag-
nosed for years and are treat-
ed mainly for their depres-
sion. They get depressed
because they know they can
do better at things, but never
follow through. Sometimes,
they know they are bright but
everyone else thinks they're
'spacey.' As they become
more frustrated, they
become depressed.
The diagnosis of ADD
comes from the signs and
symptoms. There are many
questionnaires that help with
the diagnosis of ADD. Your
being evaluated by a doctor
who deals with ADD is the
best way to find out what's
wrong.
Like physical problems,
how badly the symptoms
upset your life determines
treatment. If a cough keeps
you up all night, you take
medicine. If ADD interferes
with your life, medication
may well help.
The chief medicines used
are called psycho-stimulants
(Ritalin, Adderall, Concerta,
and Vyvanse). For people
with ADD, stimulants work in
reverse and calm them down
and help them focus.
Strattera is a nonstimulant
medication that is also pre-


scribed for ADD.
Psychiatrist, psychologists
and other mental-health
people can diagnose the
problem. However, only
medical doctors like psychia-
trists can prescribe the
appropriate medication. Any
medical doctor can prescribe
the medicines, but psychia-
trists have the most experi-
ence.
For an excellent resource
for information on Attention
Deficit Disorders in children
and adults, go online at
www.chadd.org. This nation-
al self-help organization has
an enormous amount of
information on its web site.
Two excellent books are:
Women with Attention
Deficit Disorder by Sari
Solden and Driven To
Distraction by Holmes and
Ratey.

Senior Living Community
Celebrates 30 Years
River Commons Senior
Living Community celebrated
its 30th anniversary on
October 16, 2008. Over 200
Port Charlotte neighbors,
friends, health care profes-
sionals, residents and their
families participated in the
celebration.


River Commons, formerly
known as Villa San Souci, was
the first retirement communi-
ty with services to open its
doors in Charlotte County in
1978. River Commons still
provides the high level of ser-
vices that help seniors live
independently in their own
apartments within the com-
munity. Services include three
meals a day, housekeeping,
transportation, social and
activities programs, 24-hour
staff, a heated pool and fitness
center on site. All these ser-
vices and amenities are

to his diagnosis. Lisa
Blanchard, this year's Chair
for the Punta Gorda Relay
states that she could identify
with the mother of the
young boy in the video,
because she remembers a
scare she had when her son
was young and they found a
sizable lump and ran tests
for cancer. It was the scariest
time of her life. Fortunately
for Lisa and her son, it was a
false alarm and her son was
all right. It is always fright-
ening when anyone hears
the diagnosis of cancer, but
when it is a child, the fright
is even more so.
In the video, a local TV sta-
tion had compiled the story.
The small New York commu-
nity came together to sup-
port young Stephen and his
family. When he lost his hair
and wore a hat some chil-
dren would tease him, and
this would make him frus-
trated. Stephen's teacher
showed a movie to the class,
"Why Charlie Brown, Why?"
that was made to help edu-
cate children about cancer

and eased their fears and
aided in their understanding
of what Stephen was going
through.
Of course everyone at the
kickoff was touched by this
family's story. Remember the
video is 20 years old, and
that young man is now 28
years old, 6'3" tall, and very
handsome. Lisa had the
pleasure of introducing him
to the crowd. And then she
introduced his mother; this
year's vice-chair of the Punta
Gorda Relay for Life, Kathy
Robinson! Kathy told how


the first thing she did when
her son was diagnosed with
cancer was call the
American Cancer Society.
Not only were they a source
of information, but provided
moral support as well. Kathy
became an American Cancer
Society patient services
coordinator there in New
York for several years. She is
living here in Punta Gorda
now, and is eagerly spread-
ing her message. Stephen is
living in Tampa Florida, and
I am sure we will see more of
him through the years.


All cancer survivors and
their families took a victory

Overcoming limitations and restoring independence


By MICHELE L. ELLWOOD and
ANN MARIE KARAM
FAWCETT MEMORIAL HOSPITAL
Freedom it's the American
way. We love it and our
brave troops are fighting to
protect and preserve it in
countries abroad.
If you have ever experienced
a traumatic injury or a dis-
abling disease, chances are you
know what it's like to lose your
freedom. Not political or social
freedom, but the fundamental
personal freedom to perform
the simplest tasks in life that
most of us take for granted.
When a person experiences a
disabling event in his life which
limits the ability to do such
things as tie his shoes, lift a fork
or walk across a room, funda-
mental freedom becomes even
more precious than ever.
The Inpatient Rehabilitation
Unit at Fawcett Memorial
Hospital is dedicated to help-
ing people affected by dis-
abling diseases or traumatic
injuries to reach their maxi-
mum level of independence so
they may regain that sense of
personal freedom that they
always enjoyed.

Rehabilitation -
not what you planned
Rehabilitation is not some-
thing most people plan for.
But, accidents happen debil-
itating diseases happen.
Although advancements in
safety and medical technology
are assisting with early detec-
tion and treatment for many
diseases that were once con-
sidered untreatable, debilitat-
ing and traumatic events will
continue to happen. Through
rehabilitation, people who
experience these types of
events are assisted to overcome
limitations brought on by
injury or illness. Rehabilitation
helps an individual safely
regain independence so they
may successfully return home
to their family, friends, and
community.
Fortunately, Fawcett
Memorial Hospital planned for


Rehabilitation and has a
firm commitment to providing
the highest quality service for
its patients. The Inpatient
Rehabilitation Unit at Fawcett
Memorial Hospital is a 20-bed
unit located on the second
floor of the hospital. The unit is
staffed by an elite group of
highly trained specialists, who
provide focused, individualized
treatment for each patient,
based on their limitations and
unique needs. Some of the
specialties include:
Physiatrist
Rehabilitation Nurses
Social Workers
Physical Therapists
Occupational Therapists
Recreational Therapist
Speech-Language
Pathologists
Neuropsychologists
Dieticians
Other consulting Physicians
When a patient is admitted
to the Inpatient Rehabilitation
Unit, this team of professionals
reviews the person's medical
history, determines their limi-
tations, and initiates a unique
therapy program specifically
designed to meet the needs of
that individual.
Throughout the evaluation
process and the entire therapy
program, the patient's loved
ones are included in every step
of plan. Because an event that
requires rehabilitation not only
affects the person who physi-
cally experienced it, it affects
their entire family. That's why
Fawcett's Inpatient Rehab team
makes sure that there is lots of
interaction and involvement
with their patients' families.
When the family knows what
to do to help, chances are that
the patient's rehabilitation will
be much more successful.
Fawcett's team of
Rehabilitation Professionals is
committed to returning those
individuals who have been
impaired by accident or dis-
ease to their highest level of
independence by optimizing
abilities and skills in everyday
activities.

during a Speech Therapy session at Fawcett Hospital.


They do this by providing a
personal, caring and interac-
tive environment which allows
patients to reach their full
recovery potentials.

Accreditation -
performing at a higher standard
There are many skilled cen-
ters that provide high-quality
service for patients in need of
rehabilitation. What makes
Fawcett's Inpatient
Rehabilitation Unit unique is
that it is the ONLY licensed and
CARF accredited rehabilitation
unit in Charlotte County.
"CARF" stands for Commission
on Accreditation of
Rehabilitation Facilities. This is
the governing body which has
designated Fawcett's Inpatient
Rehab Unit as being substan-
tially compliant with national
standards that were developed
with input from consumers,
rehabilitation professionals,
state and national organiza-
tions and third-party payers.
Basically, it means that
Fawcett's program has met
higher standards than any
other rehabilitation facility in
Charlotte County, and that
Fawcett memorial Hospital is


committed to providing quality
rehabilitation services focused
on positive outcomes for the
patients it serves. Fawcett is
very proud of having achieved
this distinguished accredita-
tion, and they are very proud to
be offering such high-quality
service to our community.

Who can be admitted?
The majority of people who
are admitted to the program
have one or more of the follow-
ing diagnoses outlined by the
"Centers for Medicare and
Medicaid Services" (CMS):
Stroke
Spinal Cord Injury
Congenital Deformity
Amputation
Major Multiple trauma
Fracture of the Femur (Hip
Fracture)
Brain Injury
Neurological disorders
(Multiple Sclerosis, Motor
Neuron Diseases,
Polyneuropathy, Muscular
Dystrophy, and Parkinson's
Disease)
Burns
Active Polyarticular
Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic
Arthritis and Seronegative


Arthropathies*
Systemic Vasculidities with
joint inflammation*
Severe or advanced
Osteoarthritis or Degenerative
Joint Disease*
(*These conditions must also
have other qualifying factors
outlined by CMS.)
However, in all instances it is
not the specific diagnosis that
determines the medical appro-
priateness for admission to the
Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit
but rather it is the requirement
of an intensive level of constant
care.

Fawcett's program -
in a nutshell
A Rehabilitation Specialist
will perform an assessment of
each patient's need for inten-
sive rehabilitation prior to
admission to the Rehab Unit.
This assessment will include a
review of all past and current
medical history and may
involve an interview. This
admission process enables the
rehabilitation team to ensure
that each patient meets the
admission criteria and that

Fawcett's program is right for
those patients.
Not everyone qualifies for
the program at Fawcett. In
order to qualify for admission
to the Rehabilitation Unit, a
patient must have the need for
a minimum of 3 hours of ther-
apy a day, 5 days a week, with
at least 2 therapies. That
patient must also require close
supervision by a physician and
require rehabilitation nursing
care. Patients must also be
medically stable and have suf-
ficient mental alertness to be
able to actively participate with
the established plan of care.
Once it is determined that
Fawcett's program meets a
patient's needs, preparations
will be made for his/her
admission to the Rehabilitation
Unit.
Daily Therapy
Once admitted to the
Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit,
the patient's treatment can
focus on any combination of
the following:
Activities of daily living
(feeding, dressing, personal
hygiene, home making)
Mobility (transfers, wheel-
chair mobility, ambulation,
stair management)
Language skills (receptive
and/or expressive)
Swallowing function
Cognitive function (atten-
tion, memory, problem solv-
ing)
Perceptual motor function
(spatial orientation, visual
motor skills, depth perception)
Continence (bowel and/or
bladder)
Pain management (pain
behavior may limit functional
performance)
Home accessibility evalua-
tions
Community reintegration
outings
Social skills
A patient will be discharged
from the Rehabilitation Unit
when the patient and team
determine that the patient has
achieved the maximum benefit
from the rehabilitation pro-
gram. The average length of
stay on the Inpatient


Rehabilitation Unit of all
patients, regardless of diagno-
sis, was 12 days in 2007.

Advanced treatment,
only at Fawcett
Fawcett Memorial Hospital's
Inpatient Rehabilitation is
proud to offer some of the
most advances therapies avail-
able, which can greatly
improve outcomes for their
patients.
For example, the Speech-
Language Pathology
Department offers a noninva-
sive therapy called VitalStim.
VitalStim Therapy is a unique
form of neuromuscular electri-
cal stimulation designed to
treat swallowing disorders
through muscle re-education.
In a treatment session, while
the VitalStim device is posi-
tioned strategically on the
patient's neck, the patient is
actively involved in specific
exercises that encourage mus-
cle re-education in order to
promote a safe, efficient swal-
low.
Additionally, Fawcett is
proud to be the first and only
facility in Florida to offer thera-
py with the NESS L300 by
Bioness. This device enables
the therapist to provide appro-
priate and graded stimulation
to the muscles in the lower leg
during walking. The device
promotes normal walking pat-
terns for patients with difficul-
ty controlling precise move-
ments of their leg, a common
condition for people who expe-
rience a stroke. This therapy
enables the patient to relearn
the correct movements
required in walking, allowing
the person the ability to return
to a much more familiar gait.
The results this therapy can
achieve is often dramatic, and
the recovering patient regains
even more of their personal
freedom.

Prevent osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a debilitat-
ing disease in which bones
become fragile and are more
likely to break. It is called the
"silent disease" because often
there are no symptoms until a
fracture occurs.
According to the National
Osteoporosis Foundation, this
disease is a growing public


health threat and affects one
in two women and more than
one in eight men.
The Florida Department of
Health in partnership with
Gulfcoast South Area Health
Education Center, Inc., is pro-
viding osteoporosis education
in Sarasota, Manatee,
Charlotte and DeSoto coun-
ties.
A curriculum called Families
Building Strong Bones was
developed to teach adult
osteoporosis education.
Participants will learn:
About osteoporosis and
how to prevent it;


How calcium, exercise and
vitamin D help build strong
bones;
How to identify risk factors
for getting osteoporosis like:
smoking, caffeine, alcohol and
lack of exercise; and
That medications are avail-
able to help prevent and treat
osteoporosis.
To schedule a free Families
Building Strong Bones pro-
gram for your employees,
your civic group, church or
neighborhood association,
call Ansley Mora at Gulfcoast
South AHEC at 941-361-6602
or e-mail amora@hsc.usf.edu.


Save money with smart food shopping


Before you go
In these economic times we
are all looking to save money,
but planning your grocery
shopping can also help you to
save time and eat healthier
too! Here are some tips to
assist you in saving time and


money, and eating healthy:
Schedule yourself time to
plan.
Use tools like "My
Pyramid" as a guide.
Make a list of meal ideas
for the week. Don't forget
about the days you'll be in a


rush and don't have time to
cook.
Then, make your grocery
list. You may want to plan in
some flexibility. Things
change!

At the Store
Most importantly use
your list. Shop when you have
time and the store isn't
crowded (good luck there!)
and limit your distractions


like children and cell phones.
Be sure to shop when you're
not hungry, as this can lead to
impulse buying. Taking time
to compare the "unit" prices
can really save dollars.

Making Comparisons
The "unit" price is usually
shown on a shelf sticker just
below the product. The unit
price is the cost of the item
per ounce or other unit of

item, as well as the cost of

When Mary came home from the grocery store she found
Henry slumped over in his chair. His speech was slurred and
he was confused. Thanks to an article that Mary had
previously read "Signs and Symptoms of Stroke", she was able
to make a quick observation and call 9-1-1.

Today, Henry is celebrating another birthday.
A Stroke is a medical emergency, and prompt treatment of
a stroke is crucial. Early treatment can minimize damage to
your brain and potential stroke complications.

When you or someone you love is
having a stroke, every minute counts. i0 2

Strokes are the third leading cause of 8
death in America and the No. 1 cause of 7 5
adult disability.
80% of strokes are preventable.
You can prevent a stroke!


Eliminate the Fear....Know the warning signs of a stroke
Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg,
especially on one side of the body
Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or
coordination
Sudden severe headache with no known cause

If you're having any of the stroke warning signs, you want
to know that you are going to a facility that is a State
Designated Stroke Center and can help you as quickly as
possible.
Peace River Regional Medical Center is that facility!
