Osmulski: No


shortage of ideas


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the final
in a series of profiles on candidates
running for city council seat No. 2.
BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

John Osmulski, one of three
candidates
running in this
year's open
council race,
immer s e d
himself in local
politics long
ago. He has
volunteered in
the communi-
ty, in one ca- Osmulski
pacity or an-
other, for 30 years.
At one point he served on five
city and county advisory boards
- chairing all of them simulta-
neously.
He brokered the deal between
the county and city that resulted
in Paw Park. He served from
1993-97 on the Code Enforce-
ment Board, and from 1994-96
on the county Natural Resources
& Recreation Advisory Board
until it sunsetted.
A general contractor by trade,
he champions "smart growth"
planning principles and "new
urbanism."
Vetted
Planning commission chair
since 1998, Osmulski has his
hands full these days. He's been
holding weekly workshops to


work through a draft compre-
hensive plan that was rewritten
by city council and handed back
to the commission for its review.
Some members of council
objected to the three-month re-
view, which ends in December.
But Osmulski defends the long
review process.
He has great misgivings about
the latest draft, which is hun-
dreds of pages long.
"The comp plan should be a
guide and have wiggle room
which allows you to operate as a
city and give you enough meat
to control development through
negotiations, land development
regulations and the zoning code
... the other tools that you uti-
lize. I'm of the impression we're
being pushed into rubber
stamping this.
"We need to get out of the
Euclidian (zoning) code, which
is so archaic, and into form-
based planning and smart
growth" based on mixed use
developments. "They compli-
ment each other. It's new urban-
ism. What became old is new
again."
Osmulski said the current
plan appears to stop growth.
"The city can't survive with no
growth.
Written
"There's what's written.
There's what's stated by staff.
And there's what's interpreted"

Do you know the code



for a healthful lifestyle?


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR


Mention the numbers
"90210" and most adults will
recall the hit FOX TV series
"Beverly Hills 90210." But it's
likely those same people would
draw a blank if asked what the
numbers 5-2-1-0 stand for.
That isn't the case for stu-
dents in the third, fourth and
fifth grades at Garden, Laurel
Nokomis, Taylor Ranch and
Venice elementary schools. Stu-
dents recognize those numbers
as the code for a healthful life-
style. Better still, they are putting
the formula into practice.
The South County Family
YMCA adopted the healthful
lifestyle 5-2-1-0 model devel-
oped by the Maine Center for
Public Health as part of its
Student Wellness Initiative in the
elementary schools and at the Y.
The initiative was begun to help
combat overweight and obesity
in children.
According to the YMCA's Web
site, more than 19 percent of
Sarasota County youth between
the ages of 6 and 11 are over-
weight or obese. That number
has tripled over the last 30 years.
The formula 5-2-1-0 reminds
students to eat healthfully, get
plenty of exercise, lessen the
time they spend on sedentary
activities and cut down on the
amount of sugar they consume.
The other mantra Jennifer
Tucker, associate director of
wellness and membership at the
Y, and her team of YMCA teach-
ers have taught students is Go,
Slow, Whoa, a method for mak-
ing wise food choices.
The three words remind stu-
dents which foods they should
eat every day, such as fruits and
vegetables; which foods they
should eat only a few times a
week; and which foods are least
nutritious and should be saved
for special occasions.
Jennifer Kilkenny, a YMCA
physical education teacher, has
reason to believe the message is
getting through to the young-
sters at Laurel Nokomis School.
"Students come back to
school and tell me what activi-
ties they did over the weekend,"
she said.

Keep moving
Kilkenny began her classes by
talking about healthful vs.
unhealthful food choices. She
didn't tell students they could
never have a cookie, but that

they shouldn't eat cookies every
day. They can even have choco-
late and strawberry milk, either
low-fat or regular, though she
reminds them there would be
more calories with the flavored
milk.
Sue DeSmidt and Joe Marisi
are physical education teachers
at Laurel Nokomis for students
in kindergarten through fifth
grade.
"This program has been very
good," DeSmidt said. "We see
many activities where the stu-
dents are implementing the
information they are learning."


DeSmidt and Marisi are
teaching the information to
third-graders who couldn't par-
ticipate due to scheduling con-
flicts.
Chad Hockett, an adaptive
physical education teacher who
designs programs for special
education students, said he has
successfully used Kilkenny's
lessons with his special needs
students.
"The students did really well
with the program," he said. "I

Church's message board vandalized


BY JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

Vandals targeted a Nokomis
church Friday in what officials
said was a politically motivated
crime.
The sign outside of the First
Baptist Church in the Pines in
Nokomis, which read, "God
Loves you and he approves this
message. Vote yes on 2," was
defaced with spray paint some-
time between Thursday night
and Friday morning.
Amendment 2 is a proposed
state constitutional amendment
that would define marriage as a
union between only a man and a
woman.

City set to place liens

on abandoned property


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

City council on Tuesday OK'd
additional steps to maintain
abandoned and foreclosed prop-
erties.
With only 28 abandoned
properties identified within city
limits, it's nowhere near the
problem North Port has with 400
abandoned homes.
The city of North Port budget-
ed nearly $1 million to cover the
cost of legal services for notices,
liens and other processing costs.
Out of that budget it paid for site
work that involved rough grad-
ing and debris removal to afford

easier subsequent mowing and
boarding up of windows, even
providing fencing around pools.
Venice set aside a mere
$10,000 to kick-start the pro-
gram.

Pine View student to camp out for Obama rally


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


SUN PHOTO BY KHARLI ROSE,
krose@sun-herald.com
Willow Tufano, 11, and her
mother, Shannon Moore, of
North Port, will be camping
out in Sarasota to attend a
rally Thursday for presiden-
tial candidate Barack Obama.


Hoping to make Florida
a blue state for only the
third time since 1968,
Democratic presidential
candidate Barack Obama
will hold a rally under the
blue skies of Sarasota
Thursday at Ed Smith
Stadium.
Gates open at 9 a.m., but
two likely attendees will
show up under the cover of
darkness. Shannon Moore,
35, of North Port, and her
daughter, Willow Tufano,
11, will camp out at 3 a.m.
Thursday morning at the
stadium, "to hopefully be


one of the first in line to see
Obama," Moore said.
Willow spent her Christ-
mas money on Obama's
book "The Audacity of
Hope."
"She's hoping to get it
signed by him," Moore
said. "So we're bringing the
book up there."
Tickets are free but the
city of Sarasota is charging
$3 for parking at Ed Smith,
2700 12th St. Campaign
officials ask only that
attendees RSVP first at
FL.barackobama.com.
For security reasons,
attendees are asked to not
bring bags or umbrellas,
and to limit personal


items. No signs or banners
will be allowed.
Willow checks the
Obama Web site for news
every day and Tuesday
morning "she came run-
ning out of her bedroom
and said, 'Mom, we've got
to go. He's going to be in
Sarasota. We've got to go to
see Obama.'"
Willow, a fifth-grader at
Pine View School in
Osprey, talks to her class-
mates about "the political
state of the country and
she passionately wants
Obama to get into office,"

County to hold hearing on fee appeals


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

If you want to appeal
fees at county parks,
beaches and public lands,
you may have to do it
before those fees are ever
set.
The Sarasota County
Commission unanimous-
ly authorized the adver-
tisement of the public
hearing on Nov. 12 to
repeal the appeals process
on the fees as part of its
consent agenda Tuesday
at the Robert L. Anderson
Administration Center.
According to John
McCarthy, general manag-
er of Parks and Recreation,
the idea behind the pro-
posed repeal came from a
perceived problem with
the current appeal process.
"(It) allows anyone to
appeal a fee within Parks
and Rec and it doesn't
have any other require-
ment," McCarthy said. "It
doesn't say that there has
to be some rationale
behind the appeal. It does-
n't have anything of sub-
stance that sets a policy for
appeal."
McCarthy said the coun-
ty commission would not
need a generous appeal
process as long as the pub-
lic is allowed to weigh in on
the fees before they're set.
"Prior to setting the
fees, we'll always have
public workshops and
welcome people's com-
ments and then there are
ways in which people can
lower their fees by part-
nering with us," McCarthy
said. "But in terms of hav-
ing an appeal process that
allows anyone for any rea-
son to appeal a fee, that's
what we're proposing for
removal."


The notice for the
public hearing will be
published Nov. 2, and
the public hearing will


be held
Nov. 12.

Correction
An Oct. 24 article titled "Rebuilders lose under
comp plan" incorrectly stated that condo owners in
the condemned Ocean Sands complex would be
unable to rebuild to its original height and density
under proposed rules in the draft comprehensive
plan. That may be true, but it's not due to the draft
plan.
In fact, city council sought to make it even easier in
the plan for owners in three beachfront neighbor-
hoods to rebuild. The latest draft allows owners to
rebuild a structure back to its original height and den-
sity, and not just in the case an act of God that
destroys the building, as was proposed a year ago, but
also for voluntarily rebuilding older structures in need
of repair.
Questions were raised about what impact Federal
Emergency Management Agency rules might have on
rebuilding should the agency require a structure's bot-
tom floor to be built higher or if it changes the build-
ing envelope by requiring additional setbacks.
On Oct. 23 planning commission members want-
ed to know: Does the new rebuild policy apply to
other areas in the city?
The revisions are still being vetted by the planning
commission. The next meeting is at 5 p.m. Thursday,
Oct. 30, at city hall.

CHURCH from Page lA


Associate Pastor Ray Morrison
said the church initially posted a
smaller stick-in-the ground sign
supporting amendment 2, but when
it was stolen, the church decided to
use its message board to support the
amendment. The vandals struck
with the spray paint the next day.
"This is the first time in the 50-
year history of the church we have
been vandalized," Morrison said. "I
wish they would have expressed
their opinions vocally rather than
destroying our property."
Damage
Supporters of the amendment
say it prevents government from


redefining marriage, which current-
ly carries the same definition by
state statute as in the proposed
amendment. Those against the
amendment say it could not only
affect homosexual couples, but also
domestic-partner agreements be-
tween straight couples and the legal
rights of unmarried couples.
Morrison said the church sup-
ports the amendment because it
falls in line with the teachings of
Christianity.
"It is what is written in the Old
and New testaments," he said.
Church officials estimate roughly
$1,000 of damage was done to the
sign but not directly by the van-


dals.
Morrison said a well-intentioned
neighbor accidentally scratched the
sign's panels when he tried to
remove the spray paint with a razor
blade.
"He meant well, but we would
have been better off using a chemi-
cal solution," Morrison said.
A neighbor reportedly saw two
men and a white van parked near
the sign at around 6:30 p.m.
Thursday. The church reported the
vandalism to the sheriff's office, but
no arrests have yet been made.

said of the most recent
draft. Often, he said, they're
"conflicting versions."

No. 3 reworked by council
"and I've been doing this for
20 years. There are hidden

able delays.
He intends to continue
with the planning commis-
sion's weekly workshops
until abetter understanding
of council's intent becomes
clear, he said.
Meanwhile, the commis-
sion is already falling be-
hind in its review. The last
meeting was taken up with
public comments. The
same could be true of
Thursday's (Oct. 30) meet-
ing, where more presenta-
tions from the public are
anticipated.
"I've got to let the public
have their say," Osmulski
said.
On his opponents
Osmulski's opponents
Kit McKeon and Emilio
Carlesimo have waged spir-
ited campaigns. Never-
theless, Osmulski is feeling
confident as Election Day,
Nov. 4, looms just around
the comer.
"I've watched my oppo-


nent flip flop on some of the
issues," he said, referring to
McKeon's positions that he
says appear to vacillate in
support of and against
development at Venice
Municipal Airport.
On other issues, he said,
my opponents "support my
stances. They've done this
throughout this election."
Carlesimo and McKeon
both said they support
Osmulski's definition of
smart growth principles.
Carlesimo agreed with
Osmulski's call for district
elections. All three candi-
dates live within blocks of
each other in or near
Golden Beach.
Carlesimo also joined
Osmulski in calling for
McKeon to withdraw from
the race due to his connec-
tion with defendants in the
ongoing Sunshine law suit.
Carlesimo said he also liked
Osmulski's idea creating a
man-made berm to sepa-
rate the airport from homes
across Airport Road.
"I have to wonder why
they are running against
me," Osmulski said.
Calling himself the voice
of reason, he's even become
somewhat of a peacemaker
in this election.
"Every time at the candi-
date forums ... I'm the guy
(seated) in the middle. The
others ... they're like water
and oil.
"I don't mind it. Some-
body's got to do it."

County to offer foreclosure program


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County offi-
cials have agreed to help
homeowners in danger of
losing their homes to fore-
closure.
They are developing a
program County Adminis-
trator Jim Ley called
"homeownership preser-
vation." It could be in
place by December and
would help offset foreclo-
sure filings, which have
totaled about 8,000 so far
this year.
Ley said the idea is to
stop the vicious cycle of
debt that results in home-
owners defaulting on
mortgage payments and

"There are people who
have borrowed on their

they've created another

Or there are people who
have lost their jobs and are
just frustrated and don't
know what else to do."
County-funded organi-
zations already are helping
homeowners: credit coun-
seling bureaus, Catholic
Charities, Jobs Etc. and
others, he said.
Ley also suggested the
county could provide be-
tween $10,000 and $15,000
to qualified, homesteaded
homeowners with good

LIENS from Page lA


Still, city council wanted to take some
kind of action. What they agreed to do is
continue the current approach with
modifications. It includes placing liens on
abandoned properties for lawn mowing
and other repairs.
An abandoned home in Venice is typi-
cally issued a notice of violation giving
the owner 10 days to bring the property
into compliance. If abatement isn't per-
formed, a case is scheduled before the
next monthly Code Enforcement Board
meeting. Under state law the board can
fine the owner up to $250 per day for the
first violation not to exceed $500 per day
for a repeat violation, but they rarely do.
Under state law, irreversible violations to
nature can go up to $5,000 per violation.
Acting City Manager Nancy Woodley
said the city already "achieves over 62
percent abatement success without
extraordinary measures being taken." Of
the 28 cases, 17 have already been abated.
What council agreed to do was to give
the remaining owners of abandoned
property 90 days within which to bring
the property into compliance before
sending in their own lawn mowers, then
billing the property owners for the service
as it's incurred.


Woodley wanted a longer period
before finding the property out of com-
pliance.
"You don't want to
open the door to get
into the lawn mowing
business," she warned.
But council opted for
the shorter period.
"We could try 90
days and see how it op-
erates in practice," said
Mayor Ed Martin. "If 90 Anderson
days creates a problem,
we could extend it."
Council also authorized the already
understaffed Building and Code En-
forcement Department to act as program
administrator to coordinate with the city
attorney for the filing of liens and other
judgment requests.
"Remember, these are distressed prop-
erties," said City Attorney Bob Anderson.
"Yes, Code Enforcement can enforce
liens, but I don't think you should count
on ever collecting on those liens. You are
probably not going to get paid. You
should assume you are not going to re-
cover the cost."

OUR VIEW



No preference for elections supervisor


We have rarely decided not to en-
dorse a candidate for an elective
office, but that's where we find
ourselves in the race for supervisor of
elections.
We were prepared to endorse incum-
bent Kathy Dent, though with strong
reservations. With eight years on the
job, she clearly has experience on her
side. But that experience includes
repeated mistakes during the course of
the 64 elections she has presided over,
calling into question her competence.
Also, we thought Dent has never let
enough light into the office's operations
and has been too quick to pass the buck
when errors came to light. Still, we had
enough concerns about her opponents,
Democrat Barry Sullivan and Levko
Klos, running without party affiliation,
that we were going to recommend
Dent, partly by process of elimination.
Since coming to that decision, how-
ever, additional information has caused
us to change our mind.
First, the office's logic and accuracy
testing prior to early voting disclosed a
coding error by Dent's staff that couldn't
be fixed in all the machines before vot-


ing began. The error was fixed for the
machines being used in early voting,
but a second L&A test had to be sched-
uled for the remainder of the machines.
Because that usually isn't necessary, it
raised a red flag particularly after
Dent told us in an interview following
the first test that there had been no
problems.
Of course, the purpose of the L&A
testing is to reveal such problems. But
confidence in the security of our elec-
tions also requires that if problems
occur they be made public, along with
the fix that was put in place.
A second issue is the recent error in
which the State Senate District 23 race
was left off the absentee ballot in one
North Port precinct. Dent sent correct-
ed ballots, and even put postage on the
return envelope but she didn't tell
anyone else, not even the candidates.
Voters raised the problem and Dent had
to respond after the fact, creating the
appearance of a cover-up when she had
the chance to show openness and
responsibility instead.
We know Dent has had to deal with
expanded absentee and early voting,


and a county charter amendment
insisting on voting machines that leave
a paper trail, and another new, multi-
million-dollar voting machine system,
one that had a paper backup this time.
And we'll give her credit for getting most
of it right at least, as far as we can tell.
Dent has been under intense scruti-
ny because of problems in earlier elec-
tions, so you'd think her office wouldn't
still be making such basic errors, or at
least that she'd be more sensitive to the
need to be open and up front about
them. After all, she and her employees
are human. But she rarely acknowl-
edges mistakes, choosing instead to try
to ignore them. That only undermines
public confidence when they eventual-
ly come to light.
We have found ourselves holding our
breath every election, waiting to hear
about glitches and hoping they'll be
small ones that won't affect the out-
come. That's no way to hold elections.
At this point we think enough is
enough we need a new superinten-
dent of elections. Unfortunately, we just
weren't quite won over by Klos or
Sullivan, who both have some of the


abilities we'd like to see in the position.
Klos is a harsh critic of Dent some-
times too stridently so, in our opinion
- but he fulfills a healthy function as a
watchdog. He seems to have done his
homework, and he sounded most of the
right notes about improving the office
and its image. We simply have a hard
time envisioning Klos operating effec-
tively as a day-to-day manager of this
office.
As for Sullivan, he has enthusiasm.
He is a 20-plus-year member of the
Sarasota County Sheriff's Office, most
recently with responsibility for evi-
dence. Sullivan touts his organization
skills and his personal commitment to
higher levels of "excellence," but we find
his resume a bit thin for this job.
We'd prefer someone with more
direct experience, or at least someone
able to address questions about the vot-
ing system with more insight and preci-
sion. Combine Sullivan's demeanor and
Levko's analytical eye and you might
come closer to an ideal candidate.
But that person isn't in the race. We'll
have to leave this decision in the voters'
hands with no recommendation.


Doesn't seem fair

I noticed that when I
got my sample ballot from
Kathy Dent (mine was
complete) that the Repub-
licans were named first in
every single race. Knowing
that being first is worth a
couple of percentage
points, it seemed unfair
that it was this way.
I thought maybe this
was some ploy by Repub-
lican Kathy Dent to favor
her party, even though her
office is to operate in a
nonpartisan manner.
She straightened me
out by telling me that the
party of the governor is
always listed first. When
Lawton Chiles was gover-
nor, the Democrats came
first.
As it turned out, in
something like 13 of the 16
races the Republicans
would have come first any-
way, had it been done
alphabetically. That party
must pick candidates with
last names early in the
alphabet on purpose. How-
ever, poor Morgan Bent-
ley, Democrat, running
against Nancy Detert for
state senate, is listed sec-
ond.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


It's not just your back yard


Editor:
Congratulations to Sue Lang and her little group of
nimbys. They have managed to squander the money
spent on the airport study and have eliminated the air-
port advisory board. You know the old adage, "If you
don't like the message, kill the messenger."
As a retired sales-tax auditor from another small
retirement community, I watched that community make
the same mistakes being made here. They ran off all the
big boxes to locations outside the city and curtailed any-
thing that might have attracted tourists. All those sales
taxes went to the county instead of the city coffers.
When they could no longer raise enough revenue and
had nearly taxed the city residents out of their homes,
they started the process of annexing neighborhoods that
didn't want to be part of the city or the increase in taxes
that went along with it. The fight was long and costly in
legal battles.
Here are some ideas you might consider to go along
with your airport plan: limit all automobiles operating
within the city to 50 horsepower; trucks of any kind
would be prohibited; all traffic must cease between sun-
set and sunrise; sirens must be removed from fire trucks
and ambulances because they scare us and our dog; stop
building any roads; and all road maintenance must
cease immediately.
The last great generation is gone and now we are left
with folks who are against anything that doesn't benefit
them directly.

Don't tell me
this is change
Editor:
I have to say that "more
of the same" from these
particular Republican can-
didates is a mega-under-
statement.
John McCain supports
state-sponsored torture
and staying the course in
Iraq despite W's new plan
for a timetable for troop
withdrawals from Iraq.
Meanwhile, Gov. Palin,


like Mr. Bush, surrounds
herself with nothing but
"yes" men or women by
terminating city and state
employees proficient at
their jobs and replacing
them with her own cron-
ies, who are now depen-
dent entirely upon Mrs.
Palin for their jobs. It does
not make one bit of differ-
ence to Alaska's governor
whether these new ap-
pointees are qualified for
their position or not.


An investigation is un-
der way in Alaska about
Mrs. Palin's abuse of pow-
er. Sure sounds like more
of the same old shifty
Republican politics, just
gussied up a might.
This is not partisan pol-
itics, as I also have a whole
heap of questions for the
Democratic candidates,
because they too have a
heck of a lot of explaining
of their own to do as well.

Englewood
McCain dodged
AARP's questions
Editor:
It's time we stopped
talking about Sarah Palin
and whether or not she's
qualified for the (vice)
presidency of the United
States.
While that question has
some merit, it only clouds
the real issues that face us
as we prepare to elect a
new president. While we're
concentrating on Mrs.
Palin and other red her-
rings, we're wasting pre-
cious time not learning the
positions of the candi-
dates to determine which
of them will do the best job
for the American people.
The AARP in an attempt
to clarify the issues, asked
each of the candidates a
series of questions and
requested they commit
(either for or against) the
AARP position. It's very
telling that Sen. Obama
committed to the AARP


position in 10 of the 11
questions. Unfortunately,
Sen. McCain chose not to
make any commitment at
all on any of the questions.
To be fair, the candi-
dates were allowed 125
words to comment on the
issues. Unfortunately, Sen.
McCain's responses sound-
ed like political posturing
that only walked around
the issues and didn't clari-
fy his position at all. While
the entire article is too
long to print here, it can be
found in the most recent
issue of the AARP maga-
zine.
It appears that Sen. Mc-
Cain is using Sarah Palin as
a pawn. If he can stir up
enough controversy around
her, he won't have to
answer any of the hard
questions on his policy.
Shame on you, Sen.
McCain. America's future
is far too important for you
to play such games to win
the election.

I mentioned that reader
Peg Tomanio had com-

received 66 percent of the

e-mail correcting Peg that
Sue actually got 35 percent

only about 52 percent
voted in the election.
While that's technically
correct, we all assume that
is a very accurate repre-
sentation of how all the
people would have voted.
The outcome likely would
have been within a per-

would have happened had
all voted.

LETTERS from Page 6A
icans for Obama?
1. He supported a bill in
Illinois that refused med-
ical aid for survivors of
abortion. That's sick and
barbaric.
2. He's friendly with a
domestic terrorist, Bill Ay-
ers.
3. He gave $800,000 to
ACORN, a corrupt organi-
zation currently being
investigated by the FBI
nationwide for its illegal
activity. You could say his
money funded some of
this illegal activity.
4. When he was a young
man he was mentored by
communist Frank Davis.
As Obama told Joe the
Plumber, he wants a redis-
tribution of wealth. That is,
take money from those
that worked to earn it, and
give it to those who don't
want to work. In the real
world that is called social-
ism, and someone that
practices it is called a
socialist.
That is just a few rea-
sons Americans are scared
of Barack Obama.
Oh, and all the negative
things mentioned in the
letter happened in the last
two years, with Pelosi and
Reid running the Con-
gress. They are the leaders
of Obama's party; thus he
was part of their failed
policies.
God bless America.


Mary O'Nesky
Venice


Having emphasized a
systematic review of Ven-
ice's comprehensive plan,
our city council has been
right on target with the pri-
orities suggested by the
workshop faculty.
I attended the three-day
workshop over the Oct. 3-5
weekend with more than 25
first-year elected officials
from municipalities as
small as 200 citizens to our
largest city, Jacksonville. In
case you are thinking "jun-
ket," the meetings began at
7:30 a.m. Friday and contin-
ued throughout the work-
days ending at about 3:15
Sunday afternoon.
Lunches and breaks al-
lowed time for people to
swap experiences and a few
horror stories.
Some participants were
surprised with the empha-
sis given to comprehensive
planning, which, as it was
explained, really lays out
what the city will look like
and be like in the future.
Land use, parks and recre-
ation, transportation, envi-
ronment and more are
ingredients of the plan that
cities must update and sub-
mit to the state for approval
every seven years. Man-
aging growth, a major issue
of concern in Venice, has
been the primary concern
across the state.
Our council spent more
than 16 meetings reading,
analyzing and modifying


the first draft of the plan,
which had been submitted
to the state prior to last
November. At present, vari-
ous committees and com-
missions are reviewing
council's draft plan to offer
comments or recommen-
dations before council votes
formally.
Other comparisons
Taxes: Most cities had ad
valorem taxes of 3.5 to 4
mills or higher. Venice, at
2.77 mills, was among the
lowest. Only one other city,
a small one, has a lower tax
rate. City council could have
assessed approximately 3.3
mills under the new state
law but chose to reduce
expenditures at this time to
stay with the lower millage.
Length of meetings:
The League of Cities re-
ported that most council
meetings lasted between
four and six hours, with
some very small cities
reporting two to three
hours. As is true with Ven-
ice, conducting appeals or
quasi-judicial procedures
took longer. Gainesville
reported meetings begin-
ning at 1 p.m. and lasting
past 11 p.m., for example.
While there has been
comment on the length of
some meetings in Venice,
only a very few have
exceeded the four-to-six
hour norm, and they were
ones with unusually com-


plex agendas.
To avoid such meetings I
have been working with the
charter officers to monitor
carefully the items to be dis-
cussed at any one meeting.
Recently we had a full regu-
lar council meeting starting
at 9:30 a.m. and completed
by noon. In the afternoon
we had a separate special
meeting to consider a com-
plex and controversial
rezoning request dealing
with mining operations
near a residential area,
where attorneys for both
sides, witnesses and the
public all were afforded the
opportunity to present their
cases. That meeting was
recessed to be continued to
allow more time for partici-
pants to present their cases.
Open records and meet-
ings: Not too surprisingly,
lectures on the Florida
Statutes governing open
meetings and open rec-
ords drew much comment
and discussion. This was
the fourth meeting I have
attended on this topic and
I have learned something
new at each one.
While the concepts of
the laws are fairly simple,
the application to certain
situations is not always

clear. At a meeting recent-
ly at the Sarasota Herald-
Tribune, the lecturer from
the Florida First Amend-
ment Foundation answer-
ed many questions with
the phrase, "It depends,"
bringing some humor to a
serious and helpful dis-
cussion.
In Orlando, attorney
John Hubbard presented
about five hours of materi-
al on ethics and the open
meetings and open rec-
ords laws. One example
involved meetings held by
staff members to rank
applicants for final deci-
sions by elected officials. It
turned out, to the surprise
of many, that such staff
meeting needed to be
"noticed," that is adver-
tised so that the public
might attend.
Venice, in fact, has held
several "unnoticed" meet-
ings this year and in the
past, although others have
been properly "noticed." I
asked Mr. Hubbard how to
correct that situation, hav-
ing read in the statutes
that such errors can be
"cured" so that the actions
taken by council are legal.
His response was that
the staff meetings for


ranking, etc., had to be
noticed and then held
again not just going
through the motions, but
dealing with all the facts
on a fresh basis. Then the
council would re-advertise
and vote on the newly pre-
sented material.
It made staff and me
feel a bit better when he
opined that this particular
feature of the law was
probably broken every
week in every city in Flor-
ida, but obviously needed
to be done lawfully.
The bottom line is that
in this first year since
being elected, Sue Lang,
Ernie Zavodnyik and I
have completed this train-
ing program and found it
beneficial. I will recom-
mend to council that we
establish more-effective
training programs for new
council members and
committee members, con-
ducted by or for the city, in
addition to advising new
council members to at-
tend a League of Cities
workshop. City Clerk Lori
Stelzer recommended this
course to us.

Sand crabs


not crabs?

This is a rude awakening. Can
it be compared to finding out
that one of your siblings is really
your cousin? I have been
betrayed. Are you ready for this
one?
Apparently the sand crab or
sand flea is not actually a crab.
You can read about this by going
to Google and punching in sand
fleas or sand crabs for bait. I am
flabbergasted. Maybe I should
change my stories or even my
retail packaging to "sand crea-
tures." I read several articles and
it seems that they are not a "true"
crab, but a different sub-species.
Another problem that I read
was that if the "sand creature"
ate a certain type of plankton, it
can be poisonous to humans.
Wonderful!
This reminds me of a New
Year's Eve party at my house
about 10 years ago. Mr. Smarty
Pants (me) decided to saute
some previously frozen fleas.
The person I was going to feed
them to owed me a sports bet.
He promised to eat some sand
fleas if he lost. Not only did he
eat them, but several others did
the same, including Mr. Smarty
Pants.
Ten years should be long
enough to get them out of my
system, right? Sand Creatures,
that's not such a bad name.
Incidentally, they were awful.
We'll talk again next week.

The Venice High School vol-
leyball team was swept Tuesday
in a best-of-three match in the
middle of the District 5A-12
tournament.
Of course, it was only a
scrimmage.
The Indians' coaches, Jay
Lanham, Kristen Batt, Stefanie
Peters and special guest alumna
Margeaux Sinibaldi, brought the
team down a notch after Venice
swept Charlotte High School 25-
6, 25-4, 25-10 in the district
quarterfinals the night before.
"Our staff has all played vol-
leyball and we try to include
them a lot in our practice so our
kids can play against good com-
petition," Venice head coach
Brian Wheatley said. "When
you've got Kristen Batt hitting on
the outside and Jay Lanham
swinging in the middle, I would
say (that's the toughest competi-
tion we will see this week)."
It should be plenty to get the
top-seeded Indians (18-8) ready
for their semifinal match with
No. 4 seed North Port High
School Wednesday at 7 p.m.
The Bobcats (13-11) defeat-
ed Lakewood Ranch High
School 25-20, 21-25, 24-26, 31-
29, 15-10 in their quarterfinal
match Tuesday. It was the third
five-game match between the
two teams this season and
North Port's first-ever five-
game win in a Class 5A district
tournament. Now the Bobcats
can rest up for their match with
top-seeded Venice Wednesday
at 7 p.m.
"Luckily we played early so
they're going to have enough
rest tonight. We're going to rest
after school tomorrow, too, and
come in here and get focused for
Venice," North Port head coach
Becky Halbert said.

VHS FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK



No letdown expected for Manatee


You might think Venice High
School is coming off its biggest
win of the season, a 56-26 drub-
bing of then-ninth-ranked
Charlotte High School. You
would be wrong.
While the District 5A-11
showdown with the Tarpons last
week was big, it pales in com-
parison to the slug-fest sched-
uled for this Friday. Manatee
High School is coming to town
facing elimination. AVenice win
would seal a second consecutive
district title for the Indians and
essentially end the Hurricanes'
season. A loss would likely force
a three-way tie between Venice,
Manatee and Charlotte.
But even before all that,
Venice and Manatee have both
had this game circled practically
since the end of last year's game,
a 21-7 Venice win.
"I think everyone knows how
important this game is," Venice
head coach John Peacock said. "I
don't foresee an emotional let-
down or anything. I think the
kids have been pounded so hard


A chilly Dri Archer keeps his hands
warm on a cold Tuesday afternoon
practice.
about Manatee we're talking
about since last January. I think
they're going to be ready."
The entire season boils down
to this matchup, so look for
loads of emotion and intensity
on both sides.


"I think both teams are going
to be fired up," Peacock said. "It's
going to be a great high school
football game."
Oriol cleared
As if Venice needed anything
else to get excited about, senior
defensive end Gerald Oriol has
finally been cleared to play after
injuring his knee during spring
practice.
Venice athletic trainer Shayna
Zion gave Peacock the good
news as he came into his office
after practice Tuesday.
"It'll be a huge emotional
boost for us if anything," Peacock
said.
Oriol will practice Wednesday
in full pads, but it is unclear how
much he will be able to con-
tribute on the field Friday.
Venice up to 6th
The Indians moved up one
spot to No. 6 in the latest
Associated Press Top 10
Florida High School football
poll. Previously seventh-ranked
Venice (7-0) defeated then-No. 9
Charlotte (6-1) in convincing
fashion, dropping the Tarpons


out of the poll. Venice trails No. 5
Pine Forest High School by 16
points in the poll.
More cowbell
The Venice cheerleaders have
begun handing out cowbells to
be rung in support of the
Indians. If you have one, bring it
to Friday's game because sup-
plies are limited.
The cheerleading squad is
also asking businesses with a
marquee sign to post a message
in support of the home team. If
your business has a storefront
window, cheerleaders will be
more than happy to come by
and decorate it. Contact coach
Cathy Perry at cpeyem@aol.com
for more information.
Also, remember to bring your
sweet tooth to Friday's game.
The cheerleaders will be hand-
ing out candy to fans because
the game is on Halloween night.

A sell-out crowd is expected
for Venice's Friday showdown

Kennedy 7th, boys 11th after one


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice High School golfer Casey Kennedy
shot a 5-over-par 77 on day one of the Class
2A FHSAA Girls Golf Finals. She is tied for
seventh place, eight strokes behind the
leader, with 18 holes to go Wednesday.
"She played really well today," Venice girls
head coach Wayne Robertson said Tuesday.
"Tomorrow she's got to convert a few more
putts. That will make a big difference."
Kennedy battled cold, windy conditions
at Ridgewood Lakes Golf & Country Club in
Davenport. She said it was so cold that she
couldn't feel her hands until around the 15th
hole.
"(I played) not as well as I would like, but
conditions today were tough," she said.


Madison Pressel of Spanish River High
School leads the tournament with a 3-
under-par 69.
Last season, Kennedy shot a 73 on day
one and was tied for third place. She eventu-
ally won the state title, but has more ground
to make up this time around.
"You never know," Robertson said. "She's
just got to play her game and the rest will
take care of itself."
The Venice boys golf team has a little
more ground to cover than Kennedy. The
Indians found themselves in 11th place out
of 16 teams after the first day at the Class 2A
FHSAA Boys Golf Finals.
Venice shot a 333 through 18 holes of the
36-hole tournament. Ponte Vedra Nease
High School leads the tournament with a
304.


"We'll see what happens tomorrow,"
Venice boys head coach Marty Tarala said.
"We have no chance of getting first place.
We'll see how far we climb."
Conditions at the boys finals at
Providence Golf & Country Club in
Davenport were similarly difficult to those at
Ridgewood Lakes. Tarala said winds gusted
up to 25 miles per hour and temperatures
were in the mid 40s at the start.
Erick Bennett led Venice with an 8-over-
par 80. Tyler Jones (84), Tim Garofalo (84)
and Spencer Dunford (85) rounded out the
scoring. Kyle Collison shot a non-scoring
87, but is still eligible to score for the team
tomorrow if he can surpass one of his
teammates.

YOUTH SPORTS CORNER


Perfection for
VCS boys basketball
The Venice Christian
School boys middle school
basketball team made history
with its 11-0 record in 2008. It
was the school's first unde-
feated season by a boys team
in its 22-year history.
They join the 1998-99 girls
basketball team as the only
two teams to finish the regular
season with perfect records.
The second half of the sea-
son saw the Lions get tested
by St. Martha's Catholic
School. Tied at 24 at the end of
the third quarter, the Lions
finished on a 13-3 run to win
37-27.
Winning easily in three of
their last four games over
Tabernacle Christian School,
Julie Rohr and Student
Leadership academies, the
Lions were again challenged
by cross-town rival Epiphany
Cathedral School.
At halftime, the Lions held a
slim, five-point lead over the
Tigers. Cedric Jackson explod-
ed in the second half for 16 of
his game-high 20 points to lead
VCS to a 46-35 win. His brother,
Monte, added 13 points while
Tanner Traub netted eight.
The Lions are now idle
until the Gulf Coast League
playoffs, which will be held at
Tabernacle Christian School
in Sarasota. Top-seeded VCS
will play No. 4 seed St.
Charles Borromeo School in
a semifinal game on Nov. 4 at
5:15 p.m. The championship
game is slated for Nov. 6 at

their season with a .500 mark
at 5-5, capped off by a thrilling
25-19 overtime win over
Epiphany.
Losing starter Hope Price
to a finger injury early in the
game, the Lions were able to
cling to an 11-9 halftime lead.
But VCS then found them-
selves down 19-13 midway
through the fourth.
The Lions took advantage
of the Tigers' foul trouble as
both of Epiphany's leading
scorers and ball handlers
fouled out of the game with
just two minutes remaining. A
full-court press helped the
Lions close the gap and pull
within two with just 3.2 sec-
onds remaining. VCS denied
the inbounds pass, causing an


ECS turnover. Faith Price
scored a layup on the ensuing
inbounds play to send the
game into overtime.
Just 30 seconds into the
overtime, Faith Price fouled
out of the game. A strong
defensive performance led to
several turnovers, which led to
six more unanswered points
for VCS.
The Lions bench was the
defensive key to seal a 25-19
overtime victory.
Faith Price was the leading
scorer for the Lions with 12
points while Hannah Houpt
chipped in five (3 in OT).
Mackenzie French, Faith
Harmon, Kailyn Duyn and
Laura Dempsey led the Lions'
defense.


Pop Warner: Lancers,
Crusaders eliminated
The Venice Vikings Pop
Warner Football and Cheer
Organization will send only one
team to the Division I North
championship Saturday in
Cape Coral.
The Pee Wee division
Lancers and the Junior Midget
division Crusaders were elim-
inated from the postseason
Saturday in Immokalee. The
Fort Myers Junior Firecats
defeated the Lancers 32-6 and
Riverdale beat the Crusaders
24-0. The Lancers finish the
year with a 4-5 record. The
Crusaders finish 5-4.
The Junior Pee Wee divi-
sion Knights (6-3) will get
another shot at Sarasota for
the title. The Sundevils
defeated Venice 7-6 during
the regular season Oct. 4.
10U Vipers
take first in Bartow
The Venice Vipers 10-and-
under fast pitch softball team
captured first place at the ISA
Halloween Havoc tourna-
ment in Bartow Oct. 19.
The Vipers came from
behind to defeat the Tampa
Diamonds for the tournament
championship. Trailing 8-5 in
the top of the fourth, Venice
posted eight runs in the inning
and went on to win 13-9.
"Early in the year, we made
the commitment to seek out
the bigger tournaments to get
the exposure to high-quality
teams," said manager Jerry
Clipse. "We took our licks at
the start of the year, but that
made us stronger and better-
suited for our second year. I
really think we have turned
the corner."

it may be
necessary to
immobilize an injured
area in the initial stages of
treatment, prolonged
immobilization may
compromise recovery. The
once-routine practice of over
protective immobilization can
lead to significant loss of muscle
strength within days. In a matter of
weeks, immobilization can lead to
lost flexibility in the joint capsule
that requires many times the normal
effort to make it go through its
motions. With this in mind, joint
injuries careful yet aggressive
treatment that involves early
mobilization. Chiropractors are
expert at treating injured and
aching joints in ways that
promote tissue healing, avoid the
formation of adhesions in the
joint capsule, attain full
flexibility, ensure the fullest
range of motion, and improve
coordination.

LET 'EM HAVE IT: SHOULD THE OWNERS OF BUILDINGS IN VENICE DESTROYED BY NATURAL DISASTERS BE ALLOWED TO REBUILD THEM AS THEY WERE BEFORE THEIR LOSS? CALL US AT 207-1111.


Let's really make it the Sunshine State

Why stop? What's the matter with you people in Venice? Let's all join Anthony
Lorenzo with his lawsuit against city council and other members in office. Why stop
with just them? I'm sure there are others that are holding secret meetings and the pub-
lic is not informed. How about the police department, fire department? Have you ever
been informed about private meetings from them? I assume utilities, maintenance,
waste and recycling departments have had meetings that we weren't invited to. Why
stop with Venice officials? There's a whole state out there to regulate. Let's go after state
officials. Have Doug Holder or Charlie Crist ever informed us of any meetings that we
could have participated in?
Tacky. I thought it was in very poor taste that Kit McKeon used the Sun Fiesta


to politic for Venice City
Council. I know his
friends, Mayor Ed Martin
and council members Sue
Lang and Ernie Zavodnyik,
did a booth there last year,
where I'm sure he got the
idea, but how tacky. I guess
Kit felt that he had to out-
do all three of them
because he not only set up
a booth, but he had five or
six people in front of it
making it impossible to


walk by without stopping.
He also got on a loud-
speaker, over and over
again, promoting himself.
FYI Kit: the Sun Fiesta is a
place for people to come
out and enjoy good food,
entertainment, shopping,
friends and family. It's not
a political rally. Heck, the
Republicans and Demo-
crats showed way more
class than you. At least
they stayed behind their


booths.
Think hard. This is to
my fellow citizens: Please,
think long and hard before
you pull that lever for the
president. Given the moral
and financial crisis of our
world, this is no time for
amateurs. We are not vot-
ing for the Academy
Awards. We need a leader
with a proven history and
dedication to this country.
Please, vote for America.

In spite of the anticoagulants, Mrs. Brady had an acute stroke the next
morning that left her unconscious, unable to speak, and unable to move the
entire right side of her body. Fortunately, her neurologist, Juliette Coleman,
M.D., was just down the hall. "When I saw she'd had a stroke, I called my
colleague Dr. Reiheld and said we had to treat her immediately."
An interventional radiologist, Craig Reiheld, M.D. performed carotid
artery angioplasty, placing stents to hold open her dissected artery, and
administering medication directly into her arteries to dissolve the clot that
had developed in her brain.
The procedure, which took more than four hours, was begun within
minutes of her stroke-and with stroke victims, every minute counts.
Afterwards, her recovery was nothing short of miraculous. By the next morn-
ing she could move her fingers; in a few days, she had recovered the majority
of her functions.
Explains Dr. Coleman, "When you're prepared-prepared for stroke
patients, and prepared for emergencies-you can do a lot of good. The
earlier a patient comes in, the better; and in Mrs. Brady's case, everything just
fell into place. She was already at the hospital, we were all familiar with her
chart, not a moment was lost-and we saw amazing results."
Drs. Coleman and Reiheld-both of whom have advanced training in
their fields-agree that VRMC is a great place for stroke patients because of
the medical talent it attracts. "Venice is such a pleasant place to live that it
really draws the cream of the crop," says Dr. Coleman.
In addition, the hospital is currently undergoing a rigorous certification
process to become a designated stroke center. "It means we have a whole
team of physicians and staff working together to mobilize rapid emergency
care for stroke victims," explains Dr. Reiheld.
Now undergoing physical, occupational, and speech therapy, Mrs. Brady
is feeling vastly better. "She's doing so well," says her husband Don, "and we
were very pleased with our experience at VRMC." Adds Mrs. Brady, "Dr.
Coleman and Dr. Cogburn, my primary care physician, really took the time
to explain exactly what was happening-first to my husband and children,
and when I was better, to me."
In a few days, Mr. and Mrs. Brady are looking forward to seeing all four
of their grown children for the first time since her stroke, who will find their
mother remarkably improved. While having a stroke wasn't lucky, the out-
come certainly was-thanks in large part to Venice Regional Medical Center
and its talented physicians.


DIABETES MONTH

Check Out HealthPark's Diabetes
Information Fair on November 5th

Did you know that over 20 million
Americans suffer from diabetes? What's
worse is that roughly one quarter are
unaware of it. This month, VRMC's
Diabetes Education Center and Center
for Wound Care will be hosting a
Diabetes Information Fair to increase
diabetes awareness.

The event will feature diabetes experts,
information booths with diabetes lit-
erature, blood sugar and blood pressure
screenings, vision screenings, free blood
sugar meters and a door prize.

VRMC's Diabetes Education Center
is a comprehensive, top-notch facility
for diabetes care. Among other things,
the Center offers an ADA-recognized
self-management program that helps
diabetics become active members of their
own treatment teams. This month, on
November 5th, registered dietician Conly
Acton will talk about the pitfalls of holi-
day eating and watching your carbs.

Whether you're diabetic, think you
might be, have a diabetic family member
or are just curious, be sure to attend the
Information Fair-you're certain to learn
a lot.

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY STUDENTS NAMED 6B


TIN CANS, REAR ENGINES AND FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE


BY DON BLAIR
CORRESPONDENT


Our next subject is the Crosley car, the creation of an industrialist very
familiar to all of us in Sarasota County: Powel Crosley Jr. of Cincinnati,
Ohio.
He was not only one of broadcasting's earliest
and greatest pioneers but also the owner of the
Cincinnati Reds 'way back when. Yes, we know
about those guys around here as well.
Crosley unveiled his first foray into four
wheels with a two-door convertible that
weighed in at less than 1,000 pounds and sold for
a whopping $250. By 1941 the body styles had
expanded, and during the war, with gasoline
rationing a big part of our lives, his little cars with their 50 miles per gallon
performance were, to say the least, very popular.
Production resumed late in 1945 and the company grabbed some new
fans with the first post-war sports car produced in the United States, the
Crosley HotShot. Does anyone out there remember it?
The company's best sales year would be 1948 with nearly 29,000 cars sold
but the following year a decline set in that would prove fatal. With only a lit-
tle more than 1,500 cars sold in 1952, the Marion, Ind., plant was sold to
General Tire and Rubber Company. A second plant in Richmond, Ind., had
been sold off during the war. Bye-bye Crosley.
For parting shots, how about this? A few notable Crosley own-
ers: Humphrey Bogart, Gen. Omar Bradley, President
Eisenhower, Paulette Goddard, Art Linkletter, Nelson
Rockefeller, Gloria Swanson, Fred Waring and Frank
Lloyd Wright. Those folks could afford just about
any car out there. The only one who went for a
1952 Super Sports model was that old rascal
Frank Lloyd Wright. im


The Corvair
All hail the Corvair! Yes, it was a Chevolet and
Chevy certainly hasn't gone out of business, but the
Corvair was a whole different breed of cat.
This was not a car you would find rolling down an assembly
line with Chevy Impalas or any other "regular-size" models
from that GM division. In the main, the Corvairs came from
GM's huge plant at Willow Run, Mich. the same Willow Run
that turned out four-engined bombers in World War II in
breathtaking fashion. Rosie the Riveter loved the
place.
Unlike the Edsel, the Corvair was not
surrounded by controversy before
it could get out of the starting
gate. It was designed and built
due to the growing influx of
popular small, sporty and
fuel-efficient cars coming
out of Europe -
Volkswagen, Renault, and
others.
If there was any contro-
versy that came with the car as
standard equipment it would have '63 Col
had to be that engine in the rear and built
on an aluminum block as opposed to the standard
iron common to imported cars. Despite picky prob-
lems such as persistent oil leaks stemming from the
engine's push rods, the Corvair began rolling off the
assembly line in late 1959 and darned if it wasn't
named Motor Trend's Car of the Year for the 1960
model year.
Sales for that first year were a handsome
253,268, more than 337,000 the following year
and 336,005 the year after that, 1962. Though not
precipitous, sales did began a downward slide in '63 but
stayed in the 200,000-plus category for three years
before a disastrous 1967, when a mere 27,253 left
dealer showrooms.
For the first three years all Corvairs
had a suspension system called
the swing-axle. I have seen it
referred to as a wishbone
suspension in some
articles but what it did,
at least to up-and-
coming consumer
lawyer Ralph Nader,
was to dangerously
"unweight" the rear
wheels when a driver
might enter a highway
off-ramp a bit too fast
or on wet roads. This
meant that the tire tread
would be sharply reduced
"where the rubber meets the
road" and you could have a
real safety problem on your '63 Corvai
hands.
Oddly enough, by the time
Nader's "Unsafe At Any Speed" hit its


a

fl


'50 Crosley
Hot Shot


own sales road in 1965, GM had already recognized the problem and had taken
engineering steps to correct it.
Nader's wrath was equally directed at the beloved Volkswagen Beetle,
and if you were ever behind one of those little guys in a driving situation
as noted above, you could easily see the rear wheels tilting inwards.
It was not out of any anger directed at Mr.
Nader that I bought a brand new Beetle in 1964
and loved every minute of it, and met and mar-
ried a girl in 1964 who drove to her school
teaching job in a spiffy 1965 metallic-blue
Corvair Monza convertible. By then, as I said,
that rear-wheel issue had been dealt with
and we never had any such problem or even
the hint of it.
Additionally, the convertible top was raised
and lowed by hand in what had to be less than 10 seconds. Just a few
latches to snap above the dash and you were safe from the rain. Nothing
to wear out. A great, great fun car. We must have been getting at least 30
miles per gallon highway and long, long wear on the tires before such
things became hot issues.
With only slight body modifications, those Corvairs looked much the
same throughout their nine model years. I was somewhat surprised,
nonetheless, when my research into Corvair history revealed that the
division also produced a station wagon they called the Lakewood and a
four-door van a light-duty truck.
While GM wrestled with the oil leak situation, the Corvair engine
'56 Willys grew from an initial 80 horsepower to as much as 180 horse-
power. The only time I looked into the Internet out of curiosity
about possibly ever owning a Monza convertible again, I could
find completely rebuilt ones for just less than $10,000. If we had
a three-car garage it might be in there now.
Final note. Back in the late 1960s when Pete Estes was presi-
dent of General Motors, I attended a media event at
Tavern On The Green in New York's Central Park
and ended up sitting next to the GM honcho. Our
little family had begun and necessitated a
move to a larger sized Chevolet, but I had
to tell Estes how much we loved that
Corvair convertible regardless of what
Ralph Nader thought about it.
He laughed and said the car was
also his wife's all-time favorite and there
was no way she would ever let him sell or
dispose of it.
Come to think of it, does the president of
General Motors ever have to buy his cars?


The noble Jeep of World War II fame continues to
enjoy comfortable, if not industry-pacing sales as a divi-
sion of the Chrysler Corporation. The classic styling,
while nicely rounded off and with creature comforts
added, still retains the "Jeep" look we wartime whip-
Spersnappers gazed at longingly.
The original company, Willys-Overland,
dates back to 1908 and right up until World
War I was the second-largest producer of
cars in the United States. Only Ford was
bigger.
S It appears that Chrysler was des-
tined to become today's owner of the
Jeep. When the 1920 recession brought
/ the company to its knees, bankers hired
t none other than Walter Chrysler to
Sort things out and the first thing he
did was dump the Willys Six. He would
return to the company that still bears his
name.
Meanwhile, back in the Willys
world, there were troubled times.
Bankruptcy loomed for a second
time and a number of car
models were suspended.
Curiously, it was just the
status of Willys as an unre-
markable car maker with a
standing capacity to pro-
duce a lot more than it had
orders for that attracted
Uncle Sam in the late 1930s
when the government went
looking for a company that
could begin rapid produc-
tion of a lightweight truck
designed by a company
called American Bantam.
Fortunately, a man named
Joseph Washington Frazer had
exited Chrylser in 1938 (can't you see the
ongoing kinship between the two companies
way back then?) and began his tenure at Willys
Overland by beefing up the Willys four-cylinder
engine to take the punishment that the famed
wartime Jeep would be subjected to.
Production began in 1941 with just 8,598

Local organizations put a little love in their hearts


FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST


Being told to close their
eyes and cross the street
would scare most people,
yet it's essentially what
visually impaired citizens
deal with each day.
The Florida Council of
the Blind and the Venice


Lions Club sponsor an
annual White-Cane Day
bringing awareness to the
white-cane law with a
walk down Venice Avenue.
Anyone with a white cane
crossing the street has the
right of way.
Venice Police Depart-
ment Capt. Tom McNulty
read a proclamation de-
claring White-Cane Day at
a luncheon at the Boca
Royale Golf & Country
Club after the walk. Fred
Duda recognized Shan-
non Staub and Pat Schu-
bert for promoting aware-
ness of the visually im-
paired.
Sue Harden introduced
her guide dog, Lacey, to
the group. They've been a
team for just three weeks.


She and Helen Lewis got a
tip of the hat for their work
with talking books. Bravo
to the walk and luncheon
committee.

Shining Sun Fiesta
Three cheers to Patty
Carona, Nancy Jordan
and Vee Garry-Chiulli,
chairs, and the committee
members for the Women's

Everyone who partici-
pated in this event de-
serves a pat on the back.
Thanks for celebrating
Venice and raising funds
for organizations in town.
Mark your calendars

Sanddollar Book Store on


Saturday, Nov. 1, while you
