Sunshine suit takes



fairy-tale' turn


Row, row, row the boat


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

A new motion filed in the
Sunshine lawsuit against the city
and a number of sitting council
members alleges that a group
hoping to deter growth at the
airport created a secret code to
identify council members as
they communicated among
each other and certain council
members.
Attorney Andrea Mogensen,
representing plaintiff Anthony
Lorenzo, filed the motion in the
12th Circuit Court on Friday.


Martin Lang


Citing lack of cooperation by
defendants and their attorney in
this case, she's seeking copies of
phone records from Mayor Ed
Martin, Sue Lang and John
Moore. They are among the peo-
ple given code names based on
characters in "Snow White and


the Seven Dwarfs," to conceal
their identities in e-mails among
the people Mogensen calls "citi-
zen liaisons."
Mike Rafferty, principal
author of an alternate airport
layout plan that Martin eventu-
ally took to Washington and
Orlando to review with the FAA,
suggested the secret code.
On Dec. 15, 2007, Rafferty
sent an e-mail to Kit McKeon,
currently a planning commis-
sion member, who's up for a
council seat on Tuesday; former
airport board member Jim
Marble; and Peg Tomanio, out-
lining the idea.
"Perhaps we should develop a


SUNSHINE LAW

among others.
The code came to light during
a deposition of Marble in which
he vaguely made a reference to
Snow White. At the time the ref-
erence made little sense, but
later attorneys searched their
database of city e-mails and
found multiple entries.
"It was a joke," Marble said on
Saturday. "We used it only about
three days. That kind of thing is
too complicated.
"But if you look at the names
... they really do fit."
As for allegations of secrecy:
"There was no idea to hide any-
thing. There were times when
people said 'be quiet about this.'
This is a normal thing. Some-
times people don't want to say
anything until they get their
thoughts together. Nobody ever
did anything secret."
However, in
another e-mail
Venice resident
Rita Kutie cau-
tioned the "liai-
son group" that
using the secret
code could
prove embar-
rassing. A sug-
gestion was Noren
made to use a
more neutral code.
'Eyes only'
Mogensen contends the
records she wants will bolster
allegations by Lorenzo that
members of a select group
sought to act as liaisons between
Venice City Council members to
sway votes and that some
council members knew about it.
She is also alleging Martin,
Lang and Ernie Zavodnyik
"sought to establish a unified
voting bloc on the city council,"
in violation of state law, accord-
ing to the motion.
"These liaisons employed
secret code words and the hand

Detert gets online death threat


BY TERRY O'CONNOR
STAFF WRITER


A death threat made online
about state Senate candidate
Nancy Detert is under investiga-
tion by the Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office and the Charlotte
County Sheriff's Office Major
Crimes Unit.
In an e-mail signed by a per-
son using the name Anthony
Pedicini, the two-sentence
threat was blunt: "Since Nancy
Detert will not drop out of the
race, I am going to kill her.You all
have been warned, and go
ahead with funeral arrange-
ments."
Detert, a Republican former
mortgage broker from Venice, is
running for the state Senate
District 23 seat against attorney
Morgan Bentley, a Sarasota
Democrat. District 23 is domi-
nated by Sarasota County and
includes small portions of
Charlotte and Manatee.
"This makes me feel very
uncomfortable," Detert said
Friday. "It's OK to take a political
position and beat up on politi-


cians, but there's a line you don't
cross."
Bentley called the e-mail
threat "outrageous" and said he
hoped the perpetrator was
arrested quickly.
"My sympathy goes out to
Nancy," Bentley said in a state-
ment.
The e-mail address from
which the death threat originat-
ed belongs to 28-year-old
Anthony Pedicini, who denies
having anything to do with it. A
political campaign consultant
with Public Concepts of Tampa
and West Palm Beach, Pedicini
said he worked with Detert
before on campaigns, although
she is not a client in this race.
Detert has run for office five
times.
Pedicini asserts his e-mail
address was hacked into, and
said he filed complaints with
AOL and Yahoo.
"This is an Internet crime of
the highest order," Pedicini said.
"I would never threaten Nancy
Detert. I consider Nancy a very
good friend. I hope Nancy wins
and becomes a state senator."


Detert Bentley
Escalation
Detert reported several
threatening e-mails to the
Sarasota County Sheriff's Office.
The e-mails appeared from Oct.
21 through Oct. 27 under various
names, including Pedicini's, at
the Web site
http://finance.groups.yahoo.co
m /group/TheTruthAboutNancy
Detert/.
"The first death threat I got I
didn't take seriously," Detert
said. "I just thought it's par for
the course, something you put
up with. Then they escalated
and I filed a police report. They
started threatening my family."

Venice City Council got its
first look at a draft short-term
rental ordinance on Friday.
They spent the afternoon in a
workshop restating their inten-
tions after an apparent misun-
derstanding with planning con-
sultant Morris-Depew Associ-
ates Inc.
The draft ordinance limits
resort rentals less than 28
days in single-family residen-
tial zoning districts to three
times a year, as council envi-
sioned, putting an end to the
troublesome home rentals that
residents first complained about
four years ago.
That's when Jacksonville bus-
inessman Steve Milo began buy-
ing up dozens of homes on and
near the island to rent on a


weekly, sometimes daily, basis.
Neighbors complained of late-
night parties, cars parked on
lawns and trash strewn in what
what were supposed to be exclu-
sively residential neighbor-
hoods.
Condominiums are deemed
to be "self policing" since many
have condo associations, and


were excluded
ordinance.
On Friday,
council mem-
bers pored over
the draft ordi-
nance's defini-
tions section,
which rede-
fines transient
and resort rent-
als to include
dwelling units


from the draft








O'Connell


rented or leased for periods of
more than 28 days but less than


90 calendar days.
Council members objected to
the new definition, saying the
city never intended to stop
short-term and weekly rentals in
multi-family districts.
"I don't recall giving direction
to go beyond single-family dis-
tricts," said Council Member
John Moore.

LITTLE KNOWN FAMOUS FLORIDIANS
BY JOE "FASTHORSE" HARRILL












'V
HOWARD B. PROPST drafted this precept in 1978
describing the kind of society in which he believed
the American Dream can flourish. It is an expres-
sion of the premier values of a free society and
the objectives of the American political system he
came to know and deeply respect during his years
in Congress: "We believe in the value of the indi-
vidual and strive to perfect a free society in which
every person has an opportunity to realize his (or
her) unique potential through their own efforts.
Our goal is a compassionate society with a con-
cern for the well-being of all and a just society that
protects the rights of every person. First and fore-
most, however, we value the individuals who work
and produce, who think and innovate, who strive
and achieve, who take risks and invests in new
ideas, who accept the responsibilities of citizen-
ship, and who aspire to high standards of person-
al integrity and performance. It is upon these peo-
ple that a free society and all human progress
depend and by whom the course of history is
shaped.

Miller tops county commission race


in terms of campaign contributions


SUN NEWSPAPERS 3A


He's walking'


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

District 1 Sarasota
County Commission
candidate Democrat
Jono Miller has raised
$105,486 while his chal-
lengers Republican
Carolyn Mason and John
Mullarkey, running with
no party affiliation -
have raised $27,565 and
$10,405, respectively.
The information, avail-
able on the Web site of the
supervisor of elections
(www.srqelections.com),
breaks out the data
between April 1 and Oct.
10 of this year and pro-
vides insight into the sup-
port base of each candi-
date in Tuesday's election.
Mason, 57, was elected
to the Sarasota City
Commission in 1999 and
also served as mayor in
2001 and 2002. She works
for Habitat for Humanity
and the Salvation Army.
Mason lists expendi-
tures of $11,361. Her
largest campaign costs so
far have been $3,000 for
consulting services and
$1,681 in rack cards and
yard signs.
Notable contributors
to Mason's campaign
include:
Michael Saunders,
Realtor ($200)
Henry Rodriguez,
developer ($200)
Lisa Carlton, state sen-
ator ($200)
John Cannon, devel-
oper ($200)
Roland Piccone, Sara-
sota County planning com-
missioner ($200)
Florida Realtors
Political Action Com-
mittee ($200)
Fred Hammett, for-
mer mayor of Venice
($200)
William Furst, newly
elected property appraiser
($200)
Peter Abbott, Sarasota
City police chief ($200)
Other contributors
include Realtors, attor-
neys, construction com-
panies and real estate
investors, predominantly
from Sarasota, Osprey,
Lakewood Ranch, Venice,
Nokomis and Bradenton.
"I'm looking forward to
the general election and
my opponents," Mason
said, following her victory
in the primary. "It's going
to be a good, hearty race
and I'm looking forward to
my experience seeing me
through that."
Hammett, acknowledg-
ing Mason's experience,
believes she would make a
good county commission-
er because she has served
as a city commissioner
and mayor of Sarasota.
"I think it's important
that someone elected to
the County Commission
should have city experi-
ence," Hammett said.
"Since Carolyn has walked

the walk, hopefully the
folks in Sarasota, Venice,
North Port and Longboat
Key will have someone
who has a grasp of city
issues. In many cases,
the county commission-
ers just don't."
Miller's money
A noted conservation-
ist, Miller, 56, has served as
a board member on the
Environmentally Sensitive
Lands Program and has
chaired the Sarasota
County Citizen Oversight
Committee on Voting
Systems. He has never
held political office.
Miller's expenditures
total $55,574. His largest
spending by far has been
for $36,252 for printing
and mailing services.
Notable contributors to
Miller's campaign include:
Mary Jelks, conserva-
tionist ($200)
Michael Saunders,
Realtor ($200)
Christopher Bryant,
ecological consultant
($200)
Morgan Bentley, attor-
ney and state Senate can-
didate ($200)
Jane Longino, rancher
($200)
Christine Jennings,
congressional candidate
($40)
Barbara Zdravecky,
CEO of Planned Parent-
hood ($50)
Robert L. Anderson,


county
commis -
s ion er
($100)
Ernest
Estevez,
scientist
($200)
Mullarkey Kindra
Munt z,
president of the Sarasota
Alliance for Fair Elections
($50)
Other contributors
include construction com-
panies, investors, attor-
neys, teachers, planners,
doctors, landscapers and
environmental consultants
primarily in the Sarasota,
Venice and Bradenton
areas.
Miller was proud of
both the diversity of his
contributors and the fact
he had the lowest average
contribution.
"To me, that suggests in
addition to the (maximum
allowable) $200 checks
that I get from people that
think they're going to have
business before the com-
mission, there's also a real-
ly healthy balance of the
smaller $5, $10, $25 checks
from people who ... just
believe in my approach
and want to be support-
ive," Miller said.
Estevez noted Miller's
attendance at "countless
county commission meet-
ings"as evidence of his
dedication when he takes
on a job.
"He comes from a long
family tradition of partici-
pating in government,"
Estevez said. "It's part of
his personal ethos to try
and find solutions that sat-
isfy the most needs and
he's a respectful person
when it comes to interact-
ing with others."


Mullarkey's money
Mullarkey, 57, is not
affiliated with any party.
He is owner-operator of
Jem 'n' I Properties, where
he serves as mortgage bro-
ker, real estate appraiser
and subcontractor. A
successful businessman
who relocated to Sarasota
County from New York six
years ago, he has no politi-
cal experience.
Mullarkey has said he
possesses a keen under-
standing of the damage
done by "unbridled
growth," adding that he
would "think in an inde-
pendent and creative
manner" on critical coun-
ty issues.
"I know paradise when
I see it," he said. "Sarasota
is paradise. I want to pro-
tect and preserve it."
Mullarkey lists expendi-
tures of $8,837, the largest
of which was $2,223 for
signs.
The most notable con-
tributor to Mullarkey's
campaign is Michael Seery,
former Republican Party of
Sarasota chair, who gave
$200. Other contributors
include retirees and
investors, mostly in
Sarasota, Osprey, Longboat
Key and Anna Maria.
Seery pointed to
Mullarkey's business back-
ground as a reason to sup-
port him.
"He brings a fresh, new
look," Seery said. "He's got
a money management
background. He's studied
that (county) budget and
knows it inside and out.
He's smart, he's got the
best interests of the coun-
ty at heart and he's a can-
didate that's not bought
and paid for."

OUR VIEW


Amendments present voters a mixed bag


Our recommendations for
amendments to the Florida
Constitution are always based
on one overriding principle: Voters
should not be asked to make piece-
meal changes to the state's guiding
document if the Legislature is autho-
rized to address the same issues
through statutes.
Our Constitution shouldn't be bloat-
ed with pig-farming and fish-catching
laws. Neither should it be saddled with
redundancies, such as amendments
that echo existing state law.
Above all, we shouldn't allow the
Legislature to abdicate its responsibili-
ty to make tough decisions by passing
them along to us.
So, on principle, we'd recommend a
"No" vote on all six amendments on
the ballot (amendments 5, 7 and 9


were ordered removed by the state
Supreme Court for procedural de-
fects).
Principle aside, some of the propos-
als have merit even though they could
be better accomplished by the Leg-
islature. Here's our take on them indi-
vidually.
Amendment 1 would remove archa-
ic language in the Constitution that
permits laws barring foreigners from
owning property. No statute was ever
passed to enact this element of the
Constitution, and rightly so. It should
be deleted. Vote "Yes" to do that.
Amendment 2 would enshrine in
the Constitution a state law stipulating
that marriage is between a man and a
woman. Proponents of Amendment 2
want that language in the Constitution
so it can't readily be changed, but the


unfortunately worded amendment not
only would bar something that already
is illegal, it could potentially affect the
benefits and rights of same-sex and
even heterosexual nonmarriage cou-
ples. Vote "No" to avoid that result.
Amendment 3 would authorize a tax
exemption for improvements made to
harden property against wind damage.
It is prudent public policy to encour-
age property owners to mitigate
against hurricane damage. Vote "Yes" if
you support that policy.
Amendment 4 is an attempt to use
tax policy to encourage the preserva-
tion of open space. Vote "Yes" to lock
that into the Constitution.
Amendment 6 would remove the
requirement that waterfront property
be valued according to its highest and
best use, not its current use. Vote "Yes"


if you think this will help preserve
waterfront land from development.
Amendment 8 would authorize
counties to ask voters to approve a
local-option sales tax to fund their
community colleges. That sounds
good, but the colleges oppose it for a
variety of reasons, not least because
they fear another lottery bait-and-
switch voters agreeing to put tax
funds in and the Legislature pulling
other monies out just as fast. Vote "No"
if you think legislators should increase
college funding at the state level.
One other point: You also get to vote
for state legislators. If you're tired of
having to slog through constitutional
amendments every election because
they're not doing their job, vote for
ones who will. Our recommendations
appear below.


History repeats itself


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


Back in 1990 and 1991
Sarasota County was in
one of the worst economic
downturns it had experi-
enced since the late '70s
and early '80s. Real estate,
construction, automotive
and even tourism were
down.
Employment was way
down, which meant em-
ployment advertising was
down dramatically. That's
always a leading indicator
of how the economy in
general is performing. It
was one of those times
where you could get
dozens of applicants for
any open position, just like
we are experiencing now.
At the time the Gon-
dolier (no "Sun" then) was
being distributed three
days a week, Wednesday,
Saturday and Sunday. We
had been three days since
1984, when we started
with Monday, Wednesday
and Saturday. However,
with the recession of 1990
and 1991, the ad volume
and the economy were so
low that we reduced our
printing to two days a
week, where we had been
before, publishing on
Wednesday and Saturday.
This week we will return
to those publication days.
To many this will be a
happy day, as a lot of peo-
ple really had a love affair
with the Saturday paper,
and a second Sunday pa-
per was just too much for
many. By far, the most
complaints we received
has been about the Sun-
day delivery of the paper.
For those also getting a
daily, it was just too much.
The ability to sit with a
nice, plump paper on
Saturday was very popular,
even to the point a song
was written about that.
The new Saturday paper
will again have the comics;
the TV book (with pro-
gramming starting on
Sunday), which is still con-
sidered among the best in
the country; USAWeekend
and, some weeks, Spry
or Relish; our health and
food special sections; and
Wheels and Real Estate/
Classified.
The popular Let's Go
section will move to Wed-
nesday for early planning
of your entertainment
week. American Profile
remains on Wednesday.
One of the huge advan-
tages of a Saturday publi-


cation day is that we can
once again cover Friday
night high school sports,
such as our great football
team, without a delay.
There will be some
shifts of columns and fea-
tures that will take getting
used to. Some will drop or
be reduced in frequency.
This is my 213th and
last Sunday column -
more than four years'
worth of coming to you on
Sunday. I will now just do
my Wednesday column,
allowing space for other
great contributors on Sat-
urday. We will continue to
deliver our Sun Shopper to
non-Gondolier Sun cus-
tomers so that our adver-
tisers get near total market
coverage, more than any
other medium provides.
That will also be on
Saturday.
Some may wonder
about the price of the
product. The price of the
Gondolier Sun has never
changed since it was a
two-day paper. Not many
businesses can say that
their product has gone
four years without an
increase. That, I might
add, is in the face of six
newsprint prices increases
made or announced in a
year and a half.
So, the Gondolier Sun as
you knew it and as it will
be, is a true bargain. You
might check your daily
newspaper price or cable
price over four years to
verify that. The "Gondo" is
still less than 40 cents a
day (annual subscription
price) unless you buy it at
the newsstand. Our Sat-
urday paper at the news-
stand will be 75 cents, as
our Sunday paper was.
As apart of the belt-tight-
ening, we are going to
remove the Sun label from
the paper delivered in our
northern coverage area.
Over time the two had
merged in content, so it
makes no sense to continue
naming them differently.
The economic times we
are in are different from
and worse than any the
West Coast of Florida has
seen in most people's
memory. As my economist
brother says, we are in
uncharted territory. He
reported Thursday to Con-
gress with three other
economists about the
depth of the recession.
As Sue and I traveled on
vacation last week and
spent some time in Vir-
ginia and Washington,
D.C., it was obvious that
the times are not nearly as
bad in other areas of the
country or, for that mat-
ter, our state. We are expe-
riencing unemployment
around 7.5 percent, and
even worse in Charlotte
County, where it is more
than 9 percent.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



Leaky roof over their heads


Editor:
After retiring from the U.S. Army (Vietnam and Gulf
War veteran) and working for the state of Pennsylvania
and the U.S. government, I finally decided to retire and
buy a home in Venice. After all, this is what the American
dream is all about: You work hard and at the end of the
day there are some rewards.
Unfortunately, this dream has been shattered due to
the inefficiency of a home inspector.
The inspector stated in his report that we had a "2-3-
year-old roof" with a life expectancy of 20 years. Now
that the deal has closed and we took possession of our
home, we discovered several leaks in our ceiling, and it
appears as though the problem will get worse.
As it turns out, roofers have informed us that the roof
in question has the wrong materials (shingles) due to the
pitch of the roof.
Thus far the inspector has stated that he is not a build-
ing inspector and that code violations are not his
responsibility.
Now we have no choice but to enter into litigation due
to the inefficiency of the inspector and the fact that city
building inspectors took no action when the illegal roof
was being installed.
Believe me, now that we are on a fixed income and
with our current woes in our economy, this is one issue
that we certainly do not need.

Let's get back
to basics
Editor:
When McCain an-
nounced his choice for run-
ning mate, the logic was
obvious. His campaign was
working the angle that
women are uninformed
and will vote for any
woman you throw at them.
They assumed that Clin-
ton supporters would rally
around Palin, although she
is solidly pro-life, even in
cases of rape and incest; a
member of the NRA,
against the ban on assault
rifles; and does not support
a reform of the national
health care system to pro-
vide affordable health
insurance to all. These ideas
are inherently different
from those of Clinton.
Did the Republicans


really believe that woman
voters would fall for this?
Apparently some of us
have. I was watching a local
newscast earlier and caught
a sound bite from a woman
exiting the McCain rally in
Tampa. She indicated she
had been a Clinton sup-
porter and was now back-
ing the McCain/ Palin tick-
et. Her sole reason was she
felt she had to support a
ticket with a female candi-
date.
The time has come to get
back on issue. Gender, race
and all other unrelated fac-
tors need to be cast aside.
We need to vote based upon
which candidate will best
fulfill the needs of the time.
Our economy is in ruins,
we are in the midst of two
costly wars, health-care


costs are skyrocketing, we
are deeply dependent upon
foreign oil and we are falling
behind the rest of the world
in education. With all these
problems to be concerned
about, it is hard to believe
that countless hours are
spent debating the irrele-
vant.

New energy source
is the answer
Editor:
I am a mortgage broker
and have been slow to go
green. But I'm there now.
I'm thoroughly con-
vinced that the best way to
revitalize our country and to
keep America an economic
force in this world is for us to
lead the green revolution.
Some country will be the
first to find an alternative
energy source that is cheap-
er even than even coal. This
discovery will change the
world. Everyone will want it,
even struggling third-world
countries. There will be no
reason not to.
If we're not first, we'll be
buyers (like we are now)
rather than sellers of energy.
I'd really rather live in a
thriving America.

City council needs balance


GREG SHANIKA
GUEST COLUMNIST


Last year three new city
council members were
elected.
They campaigned on a
shared platform that pro-
mised change from the
"good old boy" insider sys-
tem of doing business.
They promised a return to
open governance with no
favoritism to special inter-
est groups, especially not
to the members of the
Citizens for Quality Gov-
ernment. They promised
to return governance of
our city to the citizen vot-
ers.
Mostly, they promised
to retard what they char-
acterized as runaway
growth, high density and
too-high buildings.
There was a ring of
truth in some of the cam-
paign accusations they
leveled against the then
city council. Some former
council members did
seem to be a bit too chum-
my with certain local
developers, entrepreneurs
and land-use attorneys.
They did a very poor job of
overseeing the develop-
ment of the original draft
of the city's comprehen-
sive plan update, even
ignoring much of
the citizen input during the
extensive Envision Venice
community planning meet-
ings. What's more some
council members seemed
unresponsive to community
concerns about growth and
development.
It certainly didn't help
their cause when some of
their supporters began
poking fun at the city's
predominantly elderly res-
idents and voters, calling
them selfish, out of touch
and, for all intents and
purposes, senile.
I always wondered why
those council members
did not repudiate these
attacks.
A year has passed and
it's interesting to examine
the results of replacing
three council members.
I believe the results are
mixed, but on balance I
and balance is the key
word the city has not
faired as well as we
deserve.
Like a pendulum, city
governance has swung dra-
matically, creating a new
imbalance favoring some
new and previously out-of-
power interest groups that
seem to hold great sway
with the new council mem-
bers.
Previously the "in"
groups were the CQG,
developers, entrepreneurs
and land-use attorneys.
The new favored groups
and individuals seem to be
the Venice Neighborhoods
Coalition, the Venice
Taxpayers League, anti-
airport crusaders, people
with grudges against
Marty Black and slow/
anti-growth advocates.
Where is the balance in
that? Did we simply swap
one set of interest groups
for another? Is that in the
best interest of our city?
The new council major-
ity has achieved some very
important and significant
accomplishments. They
have opened up council
meetings and workshops
to more citizen input, even
to the point of sometimes
extending meeting times
well into the night. They

e~-


did a yeomen's job of revis-
ing the draft comprehen-
sive plan to better reflect
citizen concerns voiced
during the Envision Venice
process.
But, like previous domi-
nating groups, the new
council members have
also promoted agendas
and practices that if not
adequately challenged by
balancing forces on the
city council will cause
problems for the city for
years to come.
For example, in their
apparent zeal to satisfy
their more-ardent sup-
porters, some council
members appear to have
violated at least the intent,
if not the letter, of the
Florida open meetings
rules. They appear to have
conspired to get their sup-
porters appointed to key
city boards and commit-
tees, an accusation often
leveled against some for-
mer council members and
their supporters.
The resulting legal en-
tanglements are already
extremely expensive to a
financially strapped city,
not to mention the dam-
age to city government
reputation and credibility.
The new council mem-
bers seem determined to
make good on a campaign
commitment to either
close or severely handicap
the Venice Municipal Air-
port. Most of the opposi-
tion to the airport seems to
be generated by a small
group of agitators, notably
the Venice Neighborhoods
Coalition which Sue
Lang headed prior to the
election -who constantly
bombard city council, city
staff, the FAA, the Florida
Department of Transpor-
tation and others with e-
mails, letters and phone
calls.
After these groups urged
city council to disband the
Airport Advisory Board, the
new majority on council
did just that. If you don't like
the advice your advisory
board gives you, disband it.
Where's the balance and
equity in that?
This past year rumors
and accusations abound-
ed at city hall and all
around the community.
Supposedly then-City
Manager Marty Black was
sandbagging the new
council members and
somehow sabotaging their
plans and initiatives. Some
newly elected council
members reportedly re-
fused to consult with the
city manager, preferring in
a petty way to ignore him

Make way. With voting being just a few days away, I
think it's very important that the retired people who have
a lot of time on their hands during the day allow the
working class to use the voting machines early morning
and after work. A lot of people are going to be voting this
year, and it's pertinent that the lines aren't so congested
during the morning hours and after working hours. Let's
get ahead of the game and try to do our voting during
day and allow the working class to vote in the morning
and in the evening after work. And remember to vote.


completely. One city coun-
cil member blew the whis-
tle on alleged sunshine
violations by two new
council members.
I attribute this atmos-
phere of distrust and back-
biting to the constant agi-
tating by special interest
groups and grudge mon-
gers.
It seemed inevitable,
given such an environ-
ment, that our city manag-
er would resign, thus ful-
filling yet another stated
goal of some interest
groups and individuals
who supported the new
council members during
last year's election cam-
paign.
Political maneuvering,
rumor mongering and
behind-the-scenes
finagling are not new to
our city government, but
we were led to believe that
this new group of council
members would be above
that sort of thing. Just
because "the good old
boys" supposedly did it is
no excuse for repeating
those tactics.
Even assuming that the
council members felt these
kinds of behavior were
necessary to achieve their
goals, the ends do not jus-
tify the means.
It seems as though the
power swap in city govern-
ment has so far resulted
mostly in swapping one
brand of dominating spe-
cial interests for another.
Where is the balance of
power and influence es-
sential for a truly represen-
tative and equitable gover-
nance? Are we inviting a
new round of sniping and
disruption from the groups
and individuals who feel
underrepresented and dis-
enfranchised by the new
council majority?
I hope the voters will
respond in the upcoming
election by electing a can-
didate who will establish
some balance on city
council, someone not
aligned with any voting
bloc or special-interest
group.
This city has experi-
enced enough of dominat-
ing special interests on
both sides of the spectrum.
Let's elect someone who
will return some balance to
city governance.

Dialed right. If I hear one

may mean the print media,
but you can't find a talk radio
channel down here that isn't
completely conservative.
They all say we're fair and bal-

Prepaid. I was calling
about Verizon, which takes
our money out automatically
for payment of our telephone
bill. They've always taken it
out nine or 10 days ahead,
and others always take it on
the due date, or one day
ahead. Now we've got an
October bill and Verizon is
going to take it 20 days ahead.
Wow, is that going to be a lot
of money that it'll get ahead
for people to pay.

Retail sales in total are off
20 to 30 percent, although
some sectors, such as
tourism-driven retailers, are
holding up relatively well.
The housing situation,
which is normally the dri-
ving engine of our economy,
along with tourism, is in the
worst shape I have seen it. I
have been saddened to see
so many good people go out
of business, retire early or
just struggle mightily.
We have full confidence
that the economy will come
back and all of our business-
es will rebound. In the
meantime, we are doing
previously unthinkable
things to help the bottom
line. This year we have had
to lay off employees, which
in 30 years of business we
had not had to do. This has
been very upsetting, as we
have wonderful, hard-
working and talented
employees.
However, we have found
that our remaining employ-
ees and wonderful carriers
are very resilient and are
finding ways to do a lot
more work more efficiently.
They also have found ways
to improve our product,
such as some of the new
design work we have been
doing.
We hope you will give us
feedback on how we can
make your paper better.

Bad company. Before vot-
ing this week, take a moment
to ask yourself these ques-
tions. One of the presidential
candidates, we have been
told, is receiving millions of
dollars for his campaign. If
this is so, where is all the
money coming from? Aren't
people in financial straits?
Aren't they losing jobs and
houses? There's a funny smell
around this. Ask yourself this
question also:We are told that
50,000 to 100,000 people
come to his rallies, but how
do they get there? Gas is high.
Something smells there too.

everyone should watch it -
students in high school, all
adults. It can be purchased on
a DVD or you can watch it on
your computer. It's about 29
minutes, and it's excellent. I
saw it recently, and I just

While Mogensen was
unwilling to use the word
"conspiracy" in her com-
plaint, she said that word
summarized their actions,
in her opinion.

"You just made my job
a lot easier," replied
David Depew.
Longtime Venice land-
lord Don O'Connell, who
owns a number of apart-
ment buildings, called
the attempt to regulate
rentals within multi-fam-
ily districts anti-business.
"It's an anti-tourist,
anti-business ordi-
nance," he said. "You are
essentially regulating
(seasonal) rentals out of
existence."

Council members
agreed that seasonal
rentals should be left
untouched, and directed
consultants to incorpo-
rate the change.
They also confirmed


According to an e-mail
sent by Rafferty to the liai-
son group, certain council
members were aware of
the liaisons' clandestine
activities. In the e-mail
that follows that one,
Rafferty uses the codes but
includes the names to
make it easy to decipher.
"DC asked if we would


consider approaching
Rick [Tacy], aka SY (code
word Sneezy), and Vicki
[Noren], aka SY (code
word Sleepy) on our pre-
sentation. We assured him

their support to "amor-
tize" short-term rentals
out of existence in single-
family neighborhoods.
Instead of grandfathering
in those existing home
rentals, council agreed to
give property owners 12
months' notice, then ban
them entirely.
They spent some time

In another e-mail dated

solving the airport adviso-
ry board, Rafferty said
Brener, Marble, McKeon
and others, "I told Ernie

three items... and I would
be in contact with Sue


That should be expect-
ed, Depew said.
"Every city that does
this gets sued," he said.
The amortization
schedule could have
been extended to 18
months or 24 months or
some other number, but
Depew felt, based on the
number and types of
rental properties, the city
was safe giving 12
months' notice before
the nonconforming rent-
als would be found in
violation of city codes.
The amortization can
be extended by a special
master if a property
owner can prove a loss of
more than $6,000 of rent
in a six-month period,
according to the draft
ordinance.

Ultimately, however,
such rentals are required
to go out of business.
To be sure they're on
safe ground, council
members asked for a
more-detailed study of
the amortization sched-
ule, legal opinions on the
topic and better proof
that the 12-month amor-
tization schedule is suffi-
ciently defensible.
"We think we can sus-
tain houses for 12
months," Depew said.
"I want to go with
something that has the
most chance of being
upheld by the courts as
reasonable and rational,"
Mayor Ed Martin said.
"It strikes me that 12
months' rental value is a
fairly small number."

Challenged
In August 2006, the
city zoning and planning
department ruled the
rentals were prohibited,
but the city planning
commission overturned
the staff ruling based on
the lack of a clear land-
use regulation prohibit-
ing such rentals.
City council chal-
lenged its own planning
commission in the 12th
Circuit Court but lost,
with Judge Robert Ben-
nett essentially ruling
similar to the planning
commission without a
city ordinance specifical-
ly addressing short-term
rentals, they are allowed.

Public weighs in on Sox proposal THREATfromPagelA


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

The public came out to
voice its opinionWednesday
on whether the Sarasota
County Commission should
approve a half-cent increase
in the Tourist Development
Tax to help finance a spring
training home for the Boston
Red Sox.
The commission an-
nounced before the public
hearing it would not vote on
the issue Wednesday be-
cause a deal appeared im-
minent between the team
and Lee County.
The commissioners ex-
pect to hear from Red Sox
officials by Friday and there-
fore delayed their vote until
next Tuesday, to see if a con-
versation on the tax in-
crease would be needed
and, if so, another public
hearing will take place.
That didn't stop several
dozen members of the pub-
lic from voicing their opin-
ions anyway, including Elsie
Sousa and Larry Anderson.


"It is time for you to
stand up and be counted for
Sarasota's future as 5,756
residents and taxpayers of
this county have signed a
petition to bring the Red Sox
training facility to Sarasota,"
Sousa told the commission-
ers. "Your vote on the
Tourist Development Tax
will demonstrate your com-
mitment and leadership
qualities as elected offi-
cials."
Anderson disagreed.
"I do not believe that
TDT money should be used
for a professional baseball
stadium," Anderson said. "I
hope that you don't increase


the levy. The money should
be used to market and pro-
mote the many attractions
we already have the arts,
theater, music, and most
important, the beaches."
Commissioner Paul
Mercier looked at the TDT
increase in another way.
"With or without the Red
Sox, with or without base-
ball, it is an economic stim-
ulus," Mercier said.
"So as people talk about
this potential tax increase,
(let's look at it) as economic
development."

classified as a felony com-
puter-related offense.
"Although she's not a
part of this county, our
computer tech and major
crimes are working on it,"
said CCSO spokesman
Bob Carpenter. "We don't
know what it's all about
yet. I'm sure we will work
together (with Sarasota) at
some point. Anything
we're able to pull up on it,
we'll pass it on to them."
Police have advised


Detert to keep a low profile
during the last three days
of the campaign. She's
going to do so, she said.
"I guess the fact it's
relentless gets you down
after a while," Detert said.
"I'd rather be hit over the
head and have you steal
my purse. It's a one-time
occurrence and you get
over it. When they keep
upping the ante every day
... it makes you worry."
Pedicini said he wel-


comes hearing from any
law enforcement agency
investigating the e-mail
threats.
"Whoever is doing this,
I pray the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement
finds them and prose-
cutes," Pedicini said. "It
wasn't sent by me from my
e-mail."

Back to back: Indians down Manatee for title


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


Clear your calendars. Venice
High School has a home football
game Nov. 21 for the regional
quarterfinal.
For the second year in a row,
the Indians are District 5A-11
champions and playoff bound.
Venice defeated Manatee High
School 31-16 on senior night
Friday at Powell-Davis Stadium.
"I wanted to win a district
championship, but this is all for
the seniors," said Venice junior
quarterback Trey Burton. "I love
every one of them. We all went
through the struggle over the
summer with (head) coach
(John) Peacock, it was awesome."
In fact, Burton was awesome
as he accounted for 340 yards of
total offense and all four Venice
touchdowns. Venice (8-0, 4-0 in
5A-11) relied heavily on their
junior quarterback when senior
speedster Dri Archer went down
with a shoulder stinger just
before halftime. Burton
responded with 152 rushing
yards, 179 passing yards and 9
receiving yards.
It didn't come easy.
Manatee gave the Indians the
hardest fight they've had all year.
Although the Venice defense
limited the Hurricanes to just
162 yards of total offense (75
rushing, 87 passing), Manatee
actually led 16-10 heading into
the fourth quarter.
"I was wondering if we were
going to get it done halfway
through, but our kids came out
in the second half (and got it
done)," Peacock said.
Venice trailed 10-3 at half-

time, but tied the game on a 77-
yard touchdown run by Burton
early in the third quarter. With all
the momentum swinging
toward the Indians, Manatee's
Mike Blakely took the ensuing
kickoff 77 yards for a score.
The extra point that followed


changed the game. Senior
defensive end Brandon
Wilkinson got through the line
and blocked the kick, making it
16-10.
"I just knew we needed
something to turn it around,
turn the momentum around,"


Venice girls take third in county meet


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

Grateful for a place to run
the Sarasota County champi-
onship cross country meet,
host Venice High School's girls
team took third at Lake Venice
Golf Club Thursday after-
noon.
Led by Kelly White (9th),
Cynthia Melendez-Flynn (10th)
and Rosa Canas (llth), the
Lady Indians turned in a score
of 67. Sarasota Christian School
edged out Venice by just five
points. County champion
Riverview High School record-
ed a team score of 35.
"I thought that we went out
a little too fast and couldn't
hang on," said girls head coach
Brenda Clark, who was hoping
for at least second place. "Not
to discredit Sarasota Christian
at all because they've had a
great team this year."


On the boys side, the young,
inexperienced Indians took
sixth place out of seven teams.
David Evander led Venice and
nearly cracked the top-15 with
a 16th-place finish and a time
of 16:50.7. Every one of the
Indians' runners broke 18 min-
utes on what proved to be a
fast course on the back nine at
Lake Venice.
Both coaches and runners
were glad to be able to run the
meet at the golf course near
Caspersen Beach on the island
of Venice. Lake Venice was gra-
cious enough to close the back
nine Thursday afternoon for
the race.
"They ensured we had
everything we needed to run a
good race," said Venice boys
head coach Jason Potter. "We're
excited about getting to run
such a nice course."

Murray, Yunker are Women at the Helm

FROM VWSS I I


The Venice Women's Sailing Squadron complet-
ed their inaugural Fall Regatta Oct. 22 in a stiff
breeze on Roberts Bay.
The pram fleet, composed mainly of wooden
boats, encountered winds gusting to the maxi-
mum the boats can endure and several racers
retired before the first race. The pram regatta was
called after two races when one of the prams sus-
tained major damage.
The Sunfish fleet also completed two races on a
separate course. These fiberglass boats are made
for higher wind speeds but some of their skippers
also missed out on the racing due to rigging fail-
ures.
About a third of the squadron's 31 competitors
completed both races, living up to the group's
nickname, "The Bitter Ends."
Winning the pram regatta with two first place
finishes was Wendy Murray of Nokomis. Karen
Williams took second and Nancy Muldoon placed
third.
Sara Yunker, also with two firsts, won the

Sunfish regatta. Second went to Nancy Marik and
third to Judy Karr.
The theme of this inaugural regatta was Women
at the Helm. The names of Murray and Yunker will
top the perpetual trophies they get to enjoy for the
next year.

SUN NEWSPAPERS 9A


GRADING THE INDIANS
Quarterbacks: A
Trey Burton is clearly the toughest com-
petitor on the field. With Dri Archer out of
the game in the third quarter, the onus
was on Burton to win the game for the
Indians. He responded with a 77-yard run
on the second play of the third quarter that
sparked a 28-7 second-half run. Burton
struggled under pressure in the first half,
losing a fumble, but his second-half perfor-
mance more than made up for it.

Running backs: B-
This offense really resembled the
Florida Gators' offense from 2007. The
quarterback was the main rushing
weapon. Manatee shut down Archer in
the first half and knocked him out of the
third quarter. The senior tailback had
only one run of 20 yards or more, which
is not very good by his standards.
However, when the chips were down in
the third, backup Rashad McRae
responded with two carries for 12 yards.


Also, Archer made up for his rushing
shortcomings with that 66-yard lightning
bolt across the middle for a touchdown.

Receivers: A
Beckett Wales has the best hands of
any high school player in the area.
Burton should have tucked it and run
when he hit Wales for the score, but his
faith in the tight end paid off. Justin Grant
had his biggest game of the year, catch-
ing four passes for 44 yards. Sophomore
Josh Boyle continued to show why he
may be the next great Venice receiver.
We already knew he runs great routes,
but apparently he can also take a hit and
hold onto the football.

Offensive line: C
Burton didn't have much time to throw
the ball on Friday night. Manatee brought
loads of pressure and luckily Burton was
good enough to overcome it. With a play-
off run on the horizon, this unit needs to


start playing to its potential. They are
way too big to let smaller defensive line-
men harass Burton and shut down
Archer.

Defensive line: A+
By far, the strongest showing this
group has had so far. As a team,
Manatee averaged just more than 3
yards per carry. The Hurricanes averaged
170 rushing yards coming into this con-
test, but the Indians held them to just 75.
Those two fourth-quarter sacks by
Brandon Wilkinson, who was playing on
offense and defense in the second half,
were huge and allowed Venice to contin-
ue their 21-point barrage.
Welcome back, Gerald Oriol.

Linebackers: A
Again with this Kye Rodgers kid. The
ball seems to have a way of finding its
way into the linebacker's hands. Or
maybe it's the other way around.


Rodgers now has a team-high three
interceptions this season.

Defensive backs: A-
Aside from a 38-yard pass completion
from Brion Carnes to Eric Williams, this
unit was stellar. Williams and Ace
Sanders are both shoo-ins for Division I
college football and they each had only
one reception for more than 10 yards. It's
not easy to prevent a big play when both
of those guys are on the field.

Special teams: A-
There were two huge plays in this
aspect of the game, and one of them
mattered. Mike Blakely's 77-yard kickoff
return looks like an afterthought after
Wilkinson blocked the ensuing extra
point. Also, Venice is now 1-for-1 on field
goal attempts this season. Have a little
faith in kicker Ed Delehantey, who
appears to have won the kicking duties
back from Javier Aquadello.

end Beckett Wales, who

just inside the end zone.
Then Burton hit Archer
over the middle of the
field, who proceeded to
split the safeties to take it

Burton put the final nail
in the Manatee coffin on a

minutes remaining.
Running back Ben Axon
led Manatee with 44 yards
on 15 carries. Mike Blakely

before carting him off the
field in the fourth quarter.
The quarterback showed


motion in all four limbs on
his way out of the stadium
as both Manatee andVenice
faithful breathed a collective


sigh of relief.
Carnes scored the lone
offensive touchdowns for
the Hurricanes despite
rushing for minus-1 yard.
Rushing yards were
hard to come by for the
Hurricanes against a
Venice defensive line that
was at full strength for the
first time this season.
Senior defensive end
Gerald Oriol was back in
action for the first time
since a knee injury side-
lined him back in the
spring.
Though he didn't play
much, the Indians' defen-
sive front played inspired
football to hold Axon to
just 2.9 yards per carry.
Axon, who has committed
to play for the University
of South Carolina next


season, averages more
than 5 yards per carry on
the season.
That same defensive
front harassed Carnes all
night before ultimately
knocking him out of the
game. Wilkinson finished
with two sacks in addition
to his blocked kick. Both
sacks were drive killers late
in the game.
"Our defense made
some plays and that's how
you win football games,"


Peacock said.
The Indians have now
secured home-field advan-
tage for the first two rounds
of playoffs even though
they still have games
remaining with North Port
and Booker high schools.

Anatomy ofa burglary arrest


KEN KLEINLEIN
CRIME SCENE
COLUMNIST


Over the past months
burglaries, larcenies and
thefts had proliferated in
and around the area of
Manasota Beach Road and
Alamander Avenue in
Englewood. The thefts
usually occurred between
the hours of 1 a.m. and
daybreak.
Autos were broken into
and property was stolen
from garages and patios.


As the larcenies increased,
the thief became bolder,
actually entering houses
while the residents were
asleep. This modus
operandi is very danger-
ous and could potentially
lead to injury or even
death.
The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office increased
patrols in the area in the
hope of apprehending the
perpetrator.
Our worst fears were
realized when a thief
entered a home on Lemon
Avenue and was confront-
ed by the resident. A strug-
gle ensued and the home-
owner was assaulted as
the burglar made his get-
away.
The increased patrols
paid off recent when
deputies arrested Michael
William Lucas, 20, 1700
block 6th St. off


Alamander Avenue in
Englewood. That resi-
dence is a stone's throw
from the areas where most
of the crimes took place.
Lucas was charged with
burglary of a dwelling with
assault or battery in that
he had in his possession
articles taken from the
Lemon Avenue burglary
and was positively identi-
fied by the victim as the
person who assaulted
him. He was also charged
with possession of
cannabis.
Subsequent investiga-
tion revealed a stash of
stolen articles in the
woods adjacent to Lucas'
6th Street address. It is
believed that the property
is the proceeds of past
burglaries.
I spoke to District III
Commander Capt. Jim
Lilly about this case and


he indicated that this
arrest was a team effort.
There is no single person
to point out, he said.
"District III Criminal
Investigations came up
with Lucas as a suspect
based on physical descrip-
tion and the proximity of
his residence to the
crimes," he said. "The
Community Policing Unit
conducted surveillance,
and the day-shift patrol
located the evidence in the
woods. The evening shift
patrol found him hiding in
his house. This was really a
team effort."
And a great one, to be
sure.
Since this arrest there
have been no burglaries in
the area; the investigation
continues to determine if
there were others in-
volved. Officers are also
attempting to track the


recovered items back to
those they were taken
from.
This was one fine piece
of police work with many
entities within the sheriff's
office working in conjunc-
tion with each other and
sharing intelligence.
Hopefully this arrest has
put an end to an insidious
crime spree.
Thanks again to the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office and District III for
providing textbook pro-
tection and excellent ser-
vice to the people within
their purview.
In last month's column I
referred to price gouging
and how to combat it.
After Hurricane Ike hit the
Gulf Coast, we heard the
wail of the gasoline suppli-
ers predicting the usual
shortages, which always
seem to equate to higher


prices at the pump.
As of this writing there
have been instances of
prices being increased by
$1 to $2 and more in our
tri-county area, even after
Gov. Crist stated that
shortages and higher
prices should not hit our
state. Subpoenas have
already been served on a
number of stations to
determine the price at
which the fuel was pur-
chased and what it was
sold for.
If you feel you have
been gouged, call the
Florida Attorney General's
Office at (866) 966-7226
and file a complaint.

Ken Kleinlein, a former
detective with the NYPD
Special Frauds Squad,
works as a crime consul-
tant and information spe-
cialist.


ID to get driver license has changed


FROM DHSMV

Changes that will affect
Florida drivers went into
effect Oct. 1.
One of the principal
changes is the identifica-
tion required for driver
licenses. Among the
changes going into effect:
Customers must pre-
sent proof of their Social
Security number (for ex-
ample, a Social Security
card or any of the follow-
ing documents showing
the number tax return,
W-2 form, property tax
statement, pay check, DD-
214, school record).
All passports, perma-
nent resident cards and
employment authoriza-
tion cards presented as
proof of identification or
legal presence must be
valid. Expired documents
will not be accepted.
The department will
no longer accept driver
licenses or identification
cards issued by other
states as primary identifi-
cation.
A person will be
allowed to elect the school
option to avoid points five
times in a 10-year period
instead of five times in a


lifetime.
Commercial driver
license holders who re-
ceive a DUI conviction
after Oct. 1, even while dri-
ving a personal vehicle,
will be disqualified from
operating a commercial
motor vehicle for one year
for the first offense, and
permanently disqualified
for a second offense. These
penalties are based on
convictions dates, not
offense dates.
In addition, the length
of time for which certain
identification cards and
motor vehicle licenses are
valid is changing.
For U.S. citizens and
immigrants with perma-
nent legal presence,
Florida Class E driver
licenses will be valid for
eight years except for cus-
tomers 80 and older. Class
A, B, or C commercial dri-
ver licenses will be valid
for eight years except for
customers 80 and older.
Licenses with a hazardous
materials endorsement
will be valid for four years.
All licenses for cus-
tomers 80 and older will
be valid for six years.
Identification cards for
children 5 through 14 will


be valid for four years.
Identification cards for
customers 15 and older
will be valid for eight years.
To learn more, visit
www.flhsmv.gov.
Two-year registration
available
Motorists can now
choose to renew their
vehicle registration for two
years rather than doing it
each year.
A motorist who chooses
the two-year renewal will
receive a license plate
decal with an additional
year added to the expira-
tion date. For example, if
your expiration date is
February 2008 and you
request the two-year re-
newal period, your new
expiration date will be
January 2010.
Through August, more
than 490,239 customers
had taken advantage of
this convenient option.
Biennial registration also
is available online at
www.GoRenew.com.
For added conve-
nience, the Department
of Highway Safety and
Motor Vehicles encour-
ages motorists to con-
duct their business trans-


actions online by logging
on to www.GoRenew.c
om.
Customers can renew


their vehicle registration,
driver license, disabled
parking permit or mobile
home registration as well


as notify the department
of an address change
from the comfort of their
own home.

PGT chief is 'somewhat optimistic'


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST
Following the release
of PGT Industries' latest
financial statement, Rod
Hershberger, the compa-
ny's president and chief
executive officer, com-
mented on the current
economic situation and its
impact on his company.
Founded in 1980 as Vinyl
Tech, PGT pioneered the
U.S. impact-resistant win-
dow and door industry. It is
one of the largest employ-
ers in Venice, and has about
1,500 employees at its man-
ufacturing facilities in
Florida and North Carolina.
A day after telling bro-
kers and investors in a
conference call that "since
the Second World War, this
is the worst downturn I
have seen in my lifetime,"
Hershberger said Friday
that, "I am somewhat
optimistic between now
and the end of the year."
That optimism echoed a
press release announcing
the company's third quar-
ter results, in which he said,
"We continue to believe
that we can grow organi-
cally by gaining market
share, but we also continue
to focus on controlling
costs and may take addi-
tional actions to streamline
operations if the economy
weakens further."
The numbers
The widening mortgage
crisis triggered problems
throughout the entire
economy, with one of the
most adversely affected
industries being home
construction. As a result,
PGT's third-quarter sales
fell to $54.3 million from
$60.1 million in the sec-
ond quarter.
Builder confidence is at
record lows, as they and
their customers face much
tougher lending stan-
dards. Housing starts were
down 43 percent in PGT's
core market in the third
quarter of 2008 compared
to 2007, and its sales
decreased 24.6 percent.
For the first nine months
of 2008, net sales were
$169.3 million, a decrease
of $54.8 million, or 24.5 per-
cent, compared to the first
nine months of 2007. Jeff
Jackson, PGT's executive
vice president and chief
financial officer, reported
PGT was beginning to see a
slowdown from customers
in payments received also.
In the third quarter, sales
were pretty consistent,
except for the three-week
period when Hurricane Fay
dropped 30 inches of rain
and Gustav and Hannah
threatened the state, shut-
ting down construction,
said Hershberger.
Taking a break
As bad as things have
been, PGT's competition
has had it even tougher.
"We are confident we
are getting much more
dominant market share as
we are seeing competitors
go out of business and
customers coming in our
door," said Jeff Jackson,
PGT's executive vice presi-
dent and chief financial
officer.
When an announce-
ment is made about cutting
costs, people jump to the
obvious conclusion, but
that is not typical of how
PGT operates, Hershberger
said. In 28 years PGT has
had only two layoffs, both
in the last 14 months. It's
the last thing the company
would look at, he said.
Another slowdown is
on the horizon, but this
one is only partly related
to the economy.
In any year things get
quiet during the holidays
as people don't want their
homes worked on then.


Hershberger believes that
this year that will lead to
most manufacturing com-
panies taking at least a
week-and-a-half break,
maybe two weeks.


"It is nothing new, no
different than what we
have done for the past 28
years," said Hershberger.
Moving forward
When the economy
slows down, companies
focus on product develop-


ment and introducing
products into new markets.
PGT has rolled out new
commercial high-street-
load products and is
expanding into other states
with new representation.
PGT has taken on three
experienced representa-

For art's sake VOTE!

BY KIM COOL

\i L students at the Venice campus of Manatee Community College have
b,'en cutting up lately.
.Working under the guidance of art teacher Jim Sager, they are
decorating a recyclable statue made by Sager.
'Arts & Letters Day falls on Election Day this year," Sager said.
That fact inspired the creation of a committee to come
up with a project that might involve the whole campus. The
committee included Ann Roggero, Doug Ford, Jane Jones and
Jeff Snyder. Eventually it was turned over to the art teachers to
move it along.
FPS ""There were some pretty good ideas," Sager said. "Some
were way out too."
Iq As the project was discussed, the election, recycling and
student involvement became key to the whole thing.
AMade of recycled materials, the resulting statue is an 8-
foot-tall, three-dimensional work inspired by "LOVE," a sculp-
o rture by Robert Indiana dating back to the 1960s. "LOVE"
S remains one of the best-known works of the Pop Art era, when
4 1Andy Warhol made Campbell's Soup and Marilyn Monroe even
more famous.
The MCC statue uses three of the same letters plus the letter "T"
S... for a similar work- "VOTE."
Sager said that "VOTE" not only refers back to what has
become a historic era in art history, but it also refers to "the pas-

."VOTE" stands 8 feet high and wide and more than 16
inches deep. Sager said he wanted it to be monumental and
even "ponderous."
said. "It has to be overpowering and bigger than anyone," he
said.
Once he got the scale right, he collected the materials.
Everything he used was recycled, from the cardboard to the
wood within the three-dimensional letters.
'"Even the screws were recycled from an earlier project,"
Sager said.
Sager made each of the 4-foot-tall letters at his home
before moving them to a friend's garage for painting.
The colors were inspired by the United States flag with a
field of blue and red and white stripes. Not wanting to copy the
"VOTE" statue at MCC's flag entirely, Sager decided to make two letters (V and E) dark
Venice campus. blue with white stars and two letters (O and T) red and white
striped. The "0" is slanted exactly the way the "0" is in the
0`Indiana design, which has since been replicated on T-shirts,
posters, tiles and, several years ago, even on United States postage
stamps.
"VOTE" was assembled on site beneath a white-awning-
covered pavilion on campus. Cables and wires connect-
ed to the awning's metal support beams keep the light-
S weight cardboard construction from blowing away.
What was not planned for was a period of intense rain
that left puddles on the concrete floor of the pavilion
exactly where the statue had been placed. After two
days of rain, the bottom two
letters became saturated and
1the "E" nearly collapsed
,because of the weight of the
'0" above it.
"It wasn't the construc-
tion that failed," Sager
said. "It was that it was
made of cardboard."
S... .... .. :.:.."" -Sager and Jill Wright,
an MCC art student,
repaired the work one day
last week, repainting some
of the base letters.
"She's the first
I lighwaywoman," Sager
said, referring to the
I ligihw,\ men artists of an earlier day
"I'm going to paint my way through Florida," she said.
Sager added more cables to the repaired sculpture "recycled cable and nylon rope
,from a 2001 flag project at MC." The cable turned out to be exactly the right length to
crisscross the pavilion while also being attached to the statue in several places, he said.
Finally, on Tuesday, Oct. 25, Sager's art students began the next step decorating
the work on all sides with cut out political slogans, comments and
pictures. First- and second-year students manned glue guns
aand scissors while other students and teachers stopped by to
f l see what was going on.
- The student "glue crew" included Tim Hartnett and
Anthony Haviaras of North Port, Kari Poinsett, Jay Cornwall
and Megan Walder of Venice, Kimberly Hovencamp and Chris

While maintaining the
red, white and blue theme,
the glue crew members ap-
plied the mostly-black and
white paper cutouts on all
sides of the culture.
As they worked, Profes-
sor Donna Bergeron arrived
on the scene. Requesting a


piece of paper and a pen,
she created a hand-written
contribution to the state.
"Let us come together,
regardless of the differ-
ences," she wrote. She
stayed long enough to paste
it in place herself, as soon as
"glue guy" Jay Cornwall
applied a wide swath of glue
on the "0."

Self-discipline: A casualty of modern society?


DR. CHRIS CORTMAN
COLUMNIST


Q. What has happened to
self-discipline in our society?
A. It seems to me that
it's largely overlooked in
today's world. As Dr.
David Walsh notes in his
book, "No," people are
inclined to be influenced
by a storyteller. In our cul-
ture, the media is the sto-
ryteller. The way the
media tells the story is
that life should be easy,
fast, uncomplicated, fun
and entertainment should
be constant and essential-
ly passive. Things that
require a lot of hard work,
discipline and frustration
aren't emphasized to
today's children.
Q. What do you see in chil-
dren today?
A. When I ask children
what they like to do, it's
mostly passive entertain-
ment. Video games can


take hours and hours of
their time. I'm disappoint-
ed by the willingness of
parents to let their chil-
dren spend entire week-
ends and every night on
the computer, in front of
the TV or playing video
games.
Q. What are the conse-
quences of this kind of parent-
ing?
A. Education facts
point to the conse-
quences. If you compare
American students with
students around the
world, our students have
taken a nose dive.
American students used
to be at the top. Now we're
not even close. So the
consequences of passive
parenting is that not
enough time is being
spent doing homework or
outdoor exercise. This
contributes to a genera-
tion of bored children
who are dependent upon
electronic entertainment.
And, just as disturbingly,
obesity is now an epidem-
ic with our children.
Q. What role does self-disci-
pline play in success?
A. A University of
Pennsylvania study
showed that self-disci-
pline is more than twice
as important as intelli-
gence in predicting suc-


cess. If children have to
work hard to get where
they are going, that's a
predictor of success.
Q. What do you think has
brought about the change in
how American children are
raised?
A. Prior to this century,
both parents didn't have
to work outside the home
as much as they do now.
When you have to work as
hard and as many hours
as parents do today, and
then you have to come
home and become
domestic engineers, pri-
orities can get lost. Again,
when the media tells us
life is expensive and we
must keep up with the
Joneses by having cell
phones, flat screen TVs,
computers in every room
and several cars more
work means less time
with the children. If the
kids are not the top priori-
ty and taking care of all of
the other things is, then
kids may spend too much
time on MySpace, watch-
ing TV and playing video
games.
Q. What's a parent to do?
A. One of the things I
like to insist on is that
every kid has to be
involved in an extracurric-
ular activity. Children
have to bring some skill or


identity into adolescence
or they end up in what I
like to call the black T-
shirt group. Part of foster-
ing that skill or identity is
telling children they are
going to find something
to do that's going to get
them out of the house.
You don't have to tell
them what to do, they can
choose, and they can try
something and then
decide after a season is
completed that they'd
rather not do that. Then
they can try something
else. They are learning
everything from team-
work and cooperation to
building an identity and
dealing with adverse con-
ditions like losing. Parents
need to teach their chil-
dren that they aren't going
to live in a virtual world,
so staying home and play-
ing video games inces-
santly is not an option.
Q. Does research speak to
the benefit of extracurricular
activities?
A. Yes. When children
are involved in extracur-
ricular activities like
sports, music, scouting,
etc., the research says
they are less likely to do
drugs or end up in jail.
Girls are less likely to be
sexually promiscuous, get
pregnant in their teens or


become victims of
domestic violence.
Additionally, kids need
chores. Kids today have
so few chores to do. When
little is expected of them,
they learn to whine and
complain so much that
weary parents just do the
chores themselves. When
children are young, par-
ents need to ask them to
try things for themselves.
It can be something as
simple as learning how to
put on their socks.
Q.What tips do you have for
parents in dealing with the
complaints when they assign
chores to their children?
A. When children
whine and complain,
parents need to disen-
gage completely.
Privileges should be
predicated upon respon-
sibility. In other words,
when chores are com-
pleted then privileges
begin not before and
it's not negotiable.
Parents should explain to
their children that they
are either going to choose
to do their chores or
choose the consequences
of not doing them. There


is no need to nag chil-
dren to get the chores
done or interrupt them in
the middle of their TV
show to remind them to
do their chores. One way
to handle this is to select
a deadline for the chores
to be completed, say
Friday at 6 p.m., for
instance. If the chores are
done, let the weekend
begin. If not, all privileges
are suspended until the
chores are satisfactorily
completed. Parents also
may use things their chil-
dren like as rewards.
Again, only when every-
thing is done, do children
attain these rewards. So if
your child takes violin
lessons and is supposed
to practice an hour a day,
then they practice first. It
shouldn't be MySpace
first and then, if they
have time, practice their
violin.

JIM MILLER
SAVVY SENIOR


Dear Savvy Senior,
My overly dramatic mother
is convinced my 72-year-old
dad has early stage Alzheimer's
disease. He has gotten more
scattered and forgetful in
recent years and is a little more
irritable, but I don't think it's
anything serious. My question
is what are the signs of Alz-
heimer's and what resources
are available to help me learn
more? Prudent Daughter
Dear Prudent,
Lots of seniors, like
your mother, worry about
memory lapses or confu-
sion as they get older,
fearing it may be the first
signs of Alzheimer's dis-
ease or some other type of
dementia. But the reality
is few seniors (less than 14
percent of those over age
70) ever develop it. Here
are some warning signs
that can help you spot a
potential problem, and
some resources to help if
you do.
What's not normal?
Forgetfulness, confu-
sion and irritably is some-
thing everyone experi-
ences from time-to-time
but it doesn't necessarily
mean we're developing


Alzheimer's disease. Or
does it? Knowing the early
warning signs is a good
first step in recognizing
the difference between
normal age-related mem-
ory loss and a more seri-
ous problem. To help you
evaluate your dad's condi-
tion, here's a checklist of
questions to ask yourself:
Does he often repeat
himself or ask the same
questions over and over?
Is he more forgetful,
or is he having trouble
with short-term memory?
Does he need
reminders to do things
like chores, shopping or
taking medicine?
Does he forget
appointments, family
occasions or holidays?
Does he seem sad or
down in the dumps more
often than in the past?
Has he started having
trouble doing calcula-
tions, managing finances
or balancing the check-
book?
Has he lost interest in
his activities such as hob-
bies, reading, attending
church or other social
activities?
Does he have trouble
finding the words he
wants to say, finishing
sentences or naming peo-
ple or things?
Even if your dad is
experiencing some prob-
lems, it doesn't necessarily
mean he has Alzheimer's.
Many memory problems
and mood changes are
brought on by other fac-
tors.
What to do
After going through the


checklist, if you're still
concerned about your
dad's mental health, get
him in to see his doctor
for a thorough medical
examination. They may
then refer him to a neu-
rologist, psychiatrist, psy-
chologist or geriatrician
who specializes in diag-
nosing and treating mem-
ory loss or Alzheimer's
disease.
Finding help
The single best re-
source to help you learn
more and find help is the
Alzheimer's Association
(www.alz.org), 24 hour
help-line ((800) 272-3900).
Another great resource
to tap is the Alzheimer's
Disease Education and
Referral Center, www.nia.
nih.gov/alzheimers or
(800) 438-4380, where you
can ask specific questions
about Alzheimer's disease,
locate clinical trials and
order What Happens
Next? a new booklet by
and for people with early-
stage Alzheimer's.
You also need to know
about National Memory
Screening Day on Nov. 18.
This could be a good time
to have your dad tested
and it's free. To locate a
screening site near you,
visit www.nationalmem
oryscreening.org or call
(866) 232-8484.
Send your senior ques-
tions to: Savvy Senior, PO.
Box 5443, Norman, OK

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is
part one of a two-part series.
Part two will appear on next
week's Travel page.

BY SUSAN MCKEE
GUEST WRITER

As I scanned the vast-
ness of the East African
horizon, memories of
summer camp flooded
into my mind. "Going on a
squeegee hunt!" I could
hear my counselor chant-
ing, her hands beating a
slow marching cadence on
her thighs. "Gonna catch a
big one. I'm not afraid."
The children's song,
complete with hand ges-
tures and sound effects, no
doubt was inspired right
where I was on safari
in Kenya. If we'd been on


foot instead of cosseted in
a Land Rover, perhaps we,
too, would have been
"going on a hunt," rustling
through waist-high grass
and climbing the occa-
sional tree for a better
view.
Like the colonial tro-
phy- seeking hunters of the
19th century, we were
stalking the "big five,"
searching the savannah
for elephant, rhinoceros,
leopard, lion and buffalo.
But, instead of guns, we
intended only capture by
camera.
During my week with
Gamewatchers Safaris, we
must have seen several
hundred elephants, thou-
sands of buffalo, a dozen
rhinos and a half-dozen
lions, but we never spotted


The "cell phone booth" outside the Porini Camp at Masai Mara
in Kenya.

a leopard. Instead, we fol-
lowed herds of wildebeest
and gazelles, compared
the stripes on two different
varieties of zebra, and
used a spotlight to see the
small mammals that came
out after dark. All the
while, we hoped the vul-
tures circling overhead
weren't waiting for us!
There are two ways to
head out to see wildlife in
Kenya. The usual way is to
book passage with a com-
pany specializing in ex-
ploring the vast govern-
ment game preserves,
where wildlife roams un-
fettered, attracting tourists
by the busload. Of course,
that's the problem one
van driver spots a lion, and
suddenly 15 more vehicles
will converge on the spot.
The second way is to
spend time in one or more
of the privately-owned
game preserves. Access is
controlled, and there are no
government-imposed rules
about driving off the
marked roads or looking for
game after dark. Here, safari
"sundowners" are routine:
guests enjoy cocktails out
on the savannah as the sun
sets, and then use a spot-
light on the van on the way
back to camp to look for the
animals that have come out
only after dark.
Each has its advantages
and drawbacks, and each
appeals to a different cate-
gory of tourist. The first is,
of course, more controlled
and "safe." Accommoda-
tions are booked at resorts
with swimming pools,

should be smooth sailing
when it's finished. On the
portions already complet-
ed, there's even a shoulder
wide enough for bicycles.
The Amboseli region, in
the country's southeast, is
often lush and green due to
the water runoff from
Mount Kilimanjaro (across
the border in Tanzania).
Still, periodic drought
affects this area as well.
Because wildlife is better
adapted to survival than
livestock, the native Masai
entered into an agreement
with the Selenkay Con-
servancy to limit grazing.

Brown bag lunches


help save dough


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


Partway through one of our candidate
interviews this election season it oc-
curred to me that campaigning is wasted
on many voters.
They make up their minds based on
party affiliation, or whether a candidate
gets labeled "pro" or "anti" something
important to them, and they're ready to
cast their ballots. And from that point on
everything a candidate does is viewed
through the lens of whether they support
him or her, or not. Which leads to seem-
ingly contradictory analyses, depending
on whether it's their candidate or yours:
On infidelity: My candidate is a man of
high moral character, though he has ac-
knowledged that he has in the past caused
his family pain. Your candidate is a shame-
less philanderer who can't keep his zipper
up.
On politics as a career: My candidate has
devoted his entire working life to public ser-
vice. Your candidate has never had a real job.
On open-mindedness: My candidate
takes principled stands on the issues of
the day, but is always willing to re-evalu-
ate those positions based on new infor-
mation and changing circumstances.


Your candidate is a spineless flip-flopper.
On health care: My candidate wants to
ensure that all Americans, regardless of
financial ability, have access to quality
health care. Your candidate thinks the
problem with socialized medicine is there's
not enough government control.
On pork: My candidate puts constituent
service first. Your candidate is the chief pig
at the earmark trough.
On money in politics: My candidate
supports campaign-finance reform in
theory, but sees a clear conflict with the
First Amendment. Your candidate has
"For Sale" tattooed on his chest.
On foreign affairs: My candidate has
accumulated vast foreign policy experience
though he has not, technically, traveled out-
side the country. Your candidate considers
himself a cosmopolitan because he once
had a Greek salad in Athens ... Georgia.
On mud-slinging: My candidate dis-
dains negative campaigning but isn't afraid
to play political hardball if he's forced to.
Your candidate knows that his only chance
to get elected is to be perceived as the
slightly lesser of two or more evils.
On polls: My candidate likes being an
underdog. Your candidate is as popular as
a screen door on a submarine.

FROM NAPSA


Brown bags are poised to
become the hottest must-
have accessory, with adult
consumers carrying more
than 8.5 billion brown bag
lunches this year, according
to the NPD Group.
To encourage even
more parents to pack a
healthy, affordable and
satisfying lunch for them-
selves and their families,
the Grain Foods Founda-
tion has teamed up with
Kate Gosselin ofTLC's "Jon
& Kate Plus Eight."
"Managing expenses is a
priority not just in my fami-
ly but with many others
across the country right
now," said Gosselin. "Mak-
ing sandwiches and pack-
ing healthy lunches is a rel-
atively easy way to save
money and manage your
diet."
Brown bagging can save
hundreds even thou-
sands of dollars per


year, a top concern for
many families. In fact,
women with school-age
children at home are more
likely (71 percent) than
those without children (59
percent) to pack a lunch,
according to a recent Har-
ris Interactive survey con-
ducted on behalf of the
Grain Foods Foundation.
While many parents
look to the brown bag
lunch to trim their fami-
lies' expenses, they may
also see the added benefit
of slimmer waistlines. In
general, brown bag lunch-
es tend to be smaller in
portion size and lower in
calories. Nearly 40 percent
of U.S. women cited nutri-
tion as a reason for packing
a lunch. As for what's going
into those brown bags -
sandwiches are the No. 1
choice across the board.


make it through the day,"
explained Judi Adams, MS,
RD and president of the
Grain Foods Foundation.
"Plus grain foods such as
sandwiches, pretzels, crack-
ers and granola bars are
convenient, delicious and
portable, making them
brown-bag friendly."
To demonstrate just
what kind of effect parents
might see on their wallets
and their waistlines, the
Grain Foods Foundation
has created an online sav-
ings tool for consumers to
track the financial and
caloric savings of packing
a lunch. By visiting grain-
power.org, consumers can
calculate their savings,
download coupons, get
delicious sandwich recipes
and register to win a year's
worth of free groceries.

Found: One little, lost mountain lion

Lost cub poses dilemma
for photographer


LARRY ALLAN
FRESH AIR
COLUMNIST


My personal assign-
ment was to photograph
the life cycle of the moun-
tain lion, also known as
cougar, puma and pan-
ther. I chose an area in
Northwestern Montana
that I already knew pretty
well to begin my efforts.
And did those efforts pay
off
I first spotted a beauti-
ful female in the rocks
above me. She was watch-
ing me! Her eyes seemed
to be asking, "What are
you doing in my territory?"
She wasn't worried about
my presence, just curious,
as cats will be.
I decided to try to follow
her as she went about her
daily life. Little did I know
where that might lead me.
Keeping a careful dis-
tance, I managed to follow
her down to the edge of a
river. She waded right in,
stopping to sharpen her
claws on a large piece of
driftwood and to take a
long drink.
I heard some sounds
coming from the bushes
behind her. It was another
mountain lion coming to
the water's edge! By this
time, the light was fading,
and I knew that I had to
leave, for my own safety.


Some four months later,
I returned to that same
secluded wilderness area
with my camera and other
gear. I had no idea where
to look for that beautiful
mountain lion, but I used
some basic tracking
knowledge to search for
her. And I did discover her
again.
She had cubs! I won-
dered if that cougar I saw
near her by the river was
the father. The timing was
correct. But there she was,
with her babies (about 1
month old) crawling all
over her as she lay in some
long grass, partially hidden
by bushes. Again, she
looked at me as if to say,
"Aren't they beautiful
babies?" They surely were!
I knew better than to get
too close, but long, tele-
photo lenses help a lot. I
photographed what I was
seeing, almost non-stop.
Then, suddenly, mama
picked up one of her cubs
in traditional cat fashion
and carried it out of sight.
Later, she returned for
another, until they were all
gone.
But, unknown to mama
mountain lion, one of the
cubs had been playing in a
hollow log, and it was left
behind. Forgotten! I could-
n't tell her, and I certainly
couldn't pick up that little,
spotted lost cub and try to
find the new den site -
not without putting myself
in grave danger of attack!
I try to avoid interfering
in the lives of the animals I
photograph. This was a
major test of my philoso-
phy. I had to leave that
youngster where it was,
alone.
On the following days, I
searched for the new den


This little, lost mountain lion, about 4-weeks-old, was hungry, thirsty and needed help.


and that mountain lion
family. When I did find
them, a quick count
showed me that one cub
was still missing. I waited
for mama to go off hunting
for food, then scurried
back to the original den
site to see if I could find
that lone cub. I picked up
the little hungry guy and
carefully carried him close
to the new den hoping


that mama hadn't yet re-
turned from her hunt.
If you'd like to know
how mama reacted to the


return of the little, lost cub,

tographs I took on this
adventure, join me at the

Fall festivals are for fun, food and families


CINDY GNEGY
COLUMNIST


The South County Family
YMCA held its Fall Festival on
Oct. 25. Activities included
pumpkin decorating, face
painting, craft projects and a
Halloween costume
exchange. Gently used cos-
tumes had been collected
since the beginning of
October and those who
donated a costume received a
ticket to come back to choose
a different costume for this
year's Halloween celebration.


Home Depot set up its
Saturday Kids Workshop for
hands-on instructions to
build bird houses, treasure
boxes and pencil holders.
"I've never built any-
thing," said Lorenzo
Martinez as he hammered
away on a birdhouse.
Kim Lyle took her daugh-
ter Savannah to find a
Halloween costume and
stayed to build a colorful pen-
cil holder.
"Savannah takes kick-box-
ing at the Y, and she found a
karate costume," Lyle said.
The Venice Farmers Market
also participated, providing
loads of fresh vegetables for
sale. As part of the YMCA's
Student Wellness Initiative,
1,400 area elementary stu-
dents were invited to the Fall
Festival to explore what the
Farmers Market had to offer.
The YMCA created the
Student Wellness Initiative
because of the growing prob-
lem of childhood obesity.
According to the Y, the Venice


area has a child obesity rate of
19.5 percent which is higher
than the national average. The
YMCA is partnering with local
schools to help improve the
health of children and their
families. The Student Wellness
Initiative program is also part
of the Y's after-school pro-
gram, family programs and
community events.
All Saints Day Festival
The Venice-Nokomis
United Methodist Church
held its annual All Saints Day
Festival on Oct. 25. Children
and adults dressed in cos-
tume, played games and ate
lots of great food. Attendees
donated food to the South
County Food Pantry in
exchange for tickets to play
games. Donations included
$75 and 325 cans of food.
"Every year we take boxes
and boxes of food to the
South County Food Pantry to
help the needy," said
Barbara Zier of the Venice
Nokomis United Methodist


Child Care Center.
In addition to all the other
activities, a puppet show was
presented by the church's
award-winning team of pup-
peteers. Bev Miller, Robin
Deegan, youth and child
director, and sound man
Chris Greene work with the
team to design and create
imaginative props and skits.
'At the regional puppetry
competitions, we have won
gold, silver and bronze
medals over the years,"
Deegan said.
The youth directors held a
weekend seminar on pup-
petry recently and eight new
members joined the team.
Five high school students,
Liana Deegan, Byron
Hanson, Tim Moran, Craig
Siringer and KennyVolker
are mentors for the junior
puppeteers. A small group of
church members formed a
team of puppeteers 13 years
ago and feel that the mentors
are important to the future of
the puppeteer performances.

Six Steps to Success


1 e 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.




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




3o 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.


4 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.




5 Make 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!




e 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!

Walk Now for Autism Wadsworth She said the event is a won- Everblades. Last year's walk
event will be held on Wadswoth derful place to meet other par- raised over $235,000.

ro Community Park. that "You need a strong sup- this year," Memoli said.


Registration begins at 10 a.m.
and the walk will start at 11
a.m.
According to Elly Hagen
Memoli, the Southwest
Florida Walk Now for Autism
Co-Chair, they are expecting
3,000 people to participate in
the event.
"We have over 150 teams at
this point," Memoli said.
"About 30 teams from
Charlotte County."
Caroline Nurkin and her
team, "Jake Rattle and Roll,"
will be one of the teams from
Charlotte County. Nurkin, her
husband Brad, and Todd and
Stacy Glover, recently hosted a
wine tasting event benefiting


Autism Speaks -
at Bin 82 in
Punta Gorda.
"We were floored," Nurkin
said. "We ended up raising
almost $9,000."
When she was told her son
had autism, she realized she
had a lot to learn about the
disorder.
"When my son was diag-
nosed, I was a mom who did-
n't know anything about it,"
she explained. "I don't want
other moms to feel like I did."
Nurkin became involved
with Walk Now for Autism
about two years ago, and said
it has become a family event
that her son enjoys participat-


port system."
"The walk is a resource cen-
ter for parents," she added.
"Last year I walked away with
a lot of information from ven-
dors."
Memoli said that there will
be a resource fair at the event
featuring autism related busi-
nesses with information about
what services are offered.
"It's about 1/2 mile walk
around the park," Memoli
explained. "It is a walk, but it's
more of a family fun day."
A day that will include
music, free food, entertain-
ment, bounce houses, face
painting, Geoffrey the Toys R
Us Giraffe, Missy Miracle and


If you aren't already on a
team, you can register the day
of the event as an individual or
join a team. If you raise $100
or more, you will receive a

Nurkin said her goal is to get
people involved and raise
awareness about autism.
"I guess the walk is a person-

Five things you didn't know about
buying medication online


By DESONTA HOLDER
McCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS
Cynthia Reilly, director of the
practice development division of
the American Society of Health-
Systems Pharmacists, offers
advice for shopping online:
Risks: There's an increased
chance of receiving a counterfeit
medication from a noncredible
source. Other countries don't
have the same safeguards in
place that the United States does
to prevent counterfeit medica-
tions. Patients also eliminate the
face-to-face interaction with a
pharmacist when purchasing
online. What to do: It can be
extremely difficult to identify a
counterfeit medication just by
looking at it. If your medication
doesn't work as expected, you
should contact your doctor or
pharmacist, whether or not you
think the product is counterfeit.
Safety: The National
Association of Boards of
Pharmacy (www.nabp.net)
reviews Internet sites and has


accredited 15 sites to use to pur-
chase medications. The organi-
zation also lists sites they do not
recommend. To stay safe, buy
medications from pharmacy
websites that post the National
Association of Boards of
Pharmacy's VIPPS (Verified
Internet Pharmacy Practice
Sites) symbol.
Saving money: Your health
care provider or pharmacist can
suggest several alternatives to
help save on prescription costs
including switching to a generic
drug, reviewing your current
medications for unnecessary or
duplicated medications, or
applying for a patient assistance
program.
Case report: The Dutch
Healthcare Inspectorate warned
consumers in early 2006 not to
buy Tamiflu through the
Internet, after counterfeit cap-
sules were found in the
Netherlands containing lactose
and vitamin C, and no active
substance.

F n F aThe Sund


Dear Dr. Joan: This is
probably my imagina-
tion, but my boyfriend
always seems to be looking for
more; more time together,
more money, more excitement.
Of course, I want to please
him, but sometimes I get
exhausted. I don't know how to
handle it.

You are to be complemented
on being able to be aware of
this pattern in your relation-
ship. You may have been
unable to interpret it before,
but I don't think it's your imagi-
nation. Often, we can feel a
blurry sort of discomfort, yet
be unable to pinpoint the
problem. Being aware of the
specifics is to celebrate.
As you suggest, the exhaus-
tion you feel is part of this
cycle. Giving beyond where we
feel comfortable is a real temp-
tation in a relationship. We
want to be compassionate and
responsive to our partner. Yet,
if what we willingly give always
seems to fall short, we may
become gun-shy, or pretend.

Or, if the rela-
tionship
seems to be
on shaky
ground, we
tend to go
overboard,
just to be DR. JOAN
share, and ASHKIN, EdD,
then feel LCSW, RN
depleted.
In clinical
circles, the pattern you
describe is called "pleasing." It
doesn't seem to be related to
gender. Either a man or a
woman can be a "pleaser." The
pleaser is one who always takes
direction from the partner. At
first glance, this looks great.
Here is a person who gives
unstintingly. Yet, frequently, the


giver turns out to be a "sacrifi-
cer." By this, I mean doing
things we don't want to do, not
visiting persons or places we'd
like, or not exploring adven-
tures we want to try.
The saddest part of this pic-
ture is that the real personality
of the pleaser is covered up by
these care=taking activities.
The pleaser is pretending.
Honesty is lost. Who is really in
the relationship?
When we're not actually liv-
ing our own life, a part of us
gets resentful. Part of us feels
we "should" do what is expect-
ed. Another part wants to be
honest. This is the conflict that
steals our energy so that we
become exhausted.
A closer look at your
boyfriend's behavior could
reveal that his wanting more
may be the natural result of


early experiences. Youngsters
who have lived through scarci-
ty or deprivation often carry
the "never enough" feelings
into adulthood. Some even
hoard, hid, or steal food, as
well. For example, just after
World War II, people in Europe
ate great quantities of food,
when it was available. Having
almost starved, earlier, they
were said to be "eating for the
next war."
You can help your boyfriend.
In becoming free of the current
dynamics with him, the first
step is awareness of the pat-
tern. You've already done that.
Now, being honest is a crucial

lmprwtngYour Outlook On Life


November 4, 2007

So far the side effects have
not given me away but
that may not last. The other
problem I have is I keep
running into people I know
at the doctor's office. So far I
am batting 1,000 in terms of
seeing people I know. The
first week I went to see Dr.
Steve, I ran into one of my
former clients. He is 93
years old, and did not recog-
nize me. The next time I was
at Dr. Steve's office, I saw
people I know from Rotary.
They did not see me as I
went hiding behind a maga-
zine.
Today I did not see any-
one I know, but of course, if
anyone knows me it doesn't
help when the nurse comes
into the waiting room and
yells out your name. Not
only does everyone in the
waiting room now know
who you are, but if they rec-
ognize your name, it won't
be long before they tell
someone. I think they ought
to use numbers instead of
names like at the deli -
when they call to serve you.
Anyway, keeping a secret
in a small town is hard. It is
going to come out eventual-
ly and I will have to deal
with it. Bottom line if I
had AIDS or any other dis-
ease I would not feel
obligated to disclose the fact
to my clients. I don't know
with any more certainty

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.

die than I did a month ago.
It could be tomorrow, or it
could be in five or 10 years
from now. I have concluded
that I wish to live my life as
normally as I can, and do so
in a manner reflecting a
normal life expectancy.
I am not going to go
around acting like I am
going to die soon. I will plan
for the worst, to be prudent,
but I am going to act like
anyone with a normal life
expectancy and then see
what develops. As far as get-
ting new clients, I think the
same holds. I am selling the
team concept and process
to begin with, so I am less
concerned.
What about family? It goes
without saying that I have to
tell my children and imme-
diate family. We made that
decision after we got the
diagnosis. I am keeping a
blog for them. I hope they
will read the entries and
comment or make sugges-
tions, as I intend to be very
open and plain in my writ-
ings. I hope people reading
this diary will quit smoking.
It is not too late.
What about friends? Well,
I can't tell my friends who
live in the immediate area.
If I do that, I might as well
just tell the whole commu-
nity. So I am electing not to


tell my friends. If you read
this after the fact, I hope
you will understand my rea-
soning.
My first obligation is to
take care of my family. I am
the breadwinner in my fam-
ily, and I am in a business
that is difficult in the best of
circumstances. I don't want
my clients to panic and
"bail" on me because I may
not be here. That does not
help them or me. And I
don't want to be stuck in
neutral, unable to get new
clients because of concerns
over my health.
So for now, the best
answer for me and my fami-
ly is to keep this a private
matter and just go on as we
have. If my condition deteri-
orates, I will have to recon-
sider what to do, but as long
as I can function normally, I
don't see a need to make a
general announcement.
Having said that, I would
love to tell my brothers in
Rotary, my friends at St.
Vincent De Paul, my golfing
friends and especially my
friends who are still smok-
ing. I'll say now that I am
sorry to have had to keep
this from you, though I am
sure you understand.

Ask an aquatic fitness professional


Question: My doctor has told
me I should do water exercises.
What's so great about water
exercise?

Answer: Great question! Let's
start with some properties of
water that are at the origin of
making it a good environment
in which to exercise. Water is
significantly denser than air
(about 800 times). This does
several interesting things.
Hydrostatic pressure increas-
es almost 1/2 pound per square
inch for every foot of depth,
resistance to movement is dra-
matically increased, and objects
immersed in water are subject-
ed to an upward force equal to
the weight of the water dis-
placed (buoyancy).
The thermal conductivity of
water is considerably greater
than that of air, resulting in the
transfer of heat significantly
faster in water than in air.
So what are these properties
going to do for us in our aquatic
exercise class? Most of the time
we're vertical in the water, so
the lower extremities will expe-
rience the greatest pressure.
This assists in blood and lymph
return to the heart and reduces
edema (swelling/fluid accumu-
lation). In fact, I've occasionally
measured people's ankles
before and after nearly an hour
of aquatic exercise and found as
much as 1/2 inch reduction in
circumference.
The increase in blood return
to the heart ultimately results in
increased cardiac output at a
given heart rate, meaning that
for a particular level of exertion,
you may experience a some-
what lower heart rate than on
land, perhaps around 10 per-
cent. When immersed to shoul-
der level, pressures at the chest
and abdomen are also elevated.
As a result, the work of breath-
ing is dramatically increased. So
just being in shoulder depth
water and breathing gives us a
great workout for inspiratory
muscles.
Let's talk now about resis-


tance to movement. Water den-
sity is the essential property
causing resistance when mov-
ing through water, but resis-
tance is further influenced by
the shape and size of the body
part moving. Whether move-
ment of a hand is overall, close
or far away from the body, and
whether resistive equipment is
being used. And a
major influence is the speed of
movement through the water -
squared! Therefore, double the
speed, in general 4 times the
resistance!
So what's all this mean
regarding our water workout?
Well, first, anyone can benefit
from water exercise it is infi-
nitely adaptable. Movement in
water is met with a proportional
force, therefore, the stronger
you are, the more powerfully
you move, the harder you work.
You can move in any direc-
tion and the resistance is always
opposite to the direction
moved. When we move a limb
forward, we'll probably be mov-
ing it back next, automatically
balancing the musculature
around the active joint an
extremely desirable outcome.
And even though we may be
focusing on cardiovascular
exercise, muscular strength and
endurance are trained through
the aquatic resistance encoun-
tered.
Buoyancy is important, too.


Buoyancy and gravity oppose
each other and that's great! If
you stood on a scale in waist
deep water, you'd weigh about
50 percent of your weight on
land, chest deep about 25
percent, and neck deep -
about 10 percent. A significant
implication of this is that buoy-
ancy will reduce impact, com-
pression and weight bearing
stress on immersed joints -
not just hips, knees and below,
but the entire spinal column.
This also can reduce or elimi-
nate pain experienced with
movement on land.
Buoyancy will reduce the risk
of falling when balance and
strength are challenges. With
the use of buoyant equipment,
support can be provided, a real
deal for folks with multiple scle-
rosis. And you can take advan-
tage of buoyancy by using
buoyant equipment like foam
barbells to increase resistance,
intensifying your workout.
Now consider thermal con-
ductivity. As stated earlier, water
will transfer heat significantly
faster than air. However, body
composition, metabolic rate,
age, state of health, and sur-
rounding air temperature and
humidity will all influence an
individual's perception of water
temperature. There is general
agreement that 80 degrees
fahrenheit and below is too cold
for all but very vigorous water


exercise and that 88 degrees
fahrenheit and above is too
warm for vigorous exercise.
The Aquatic Exercise
Association Standards and
Guidelines recommend 83 to 86
degrees fahrenheit for most
aquatic exercise formats. The
warmer water temperatures,
however, can be a godsend for
those with chronic diseases
such as fibromyalgia and arthri-
tis.
So, what's so great about
water exercise? Just about
everything! You can burn calo-
ries and lose weight, you'll be
able to do things in the water
that you wouldn't dream of on
land, and you'll experience little
or no joint impact. The water
provides for excellent cross
training; the body and mind
thrive on variation; they'll thank
you for getting in the water.
Water exercise has been shown
to contribute to a better night's
sleep.

Taking strides towards finding a cure


By BEVIN GALLO
PEACE RIVER REGIONAL
MEDICAL CENTER
This weekend, October 31-
November 2, employees of
Peace River Regional Medical
Center are participating in the
Breast Cancer 3-Day walk in
the Tampa Bay area.
This three day experience
aims to raise significant funds
to support the advancement
in breast cancer education,
research, treatment and pre-
vention made possible by the
Susan G. Komen for the Cure,
as well as ongoing support to
breast cancer initiatives by the
National Philanthropic Trust
Breast Cancer Fund.
"Our family of employees,
physicians, and volunteers
here at Peace River Regional
are always eager to join forces
to support those in need,"
says J. David McCormack,


Peace River Regional Chief
Executive Officer. "Many lives
are affected by breast cancer,
whether it is our mother,
daughter, sister, fellow
employee, or friend. By sup-
porting this cause, we are
joining thousands of others in
the fight for the cure."
The Breast Cancer 3-Day is
a 60-mile journey of both
breast cancer survivors and
supporters. Walkers often
organize groups and show
support by raising money for
research that will one day find
a cure for this debilitating dis-
ease. Then, over the course of
a three day weekend, groups
join together for an unforget-
table experience, further
showing their commitment to
end breast cancer.
Aside from skin cancer,
breast cancer, which develops
in the tissues of the breasts, is

the most common form of
cancer in women. Although
rare, men can also develop
breast cancer. According to
the National Cancer Institute,
in the United States alone, an
estimated 182,460 women will
be told they have breast can-
cer this year, as well as 1,990
men. From these estimates,
40,480 women and 450 men
will actually die from this ill-
ness.
"I have had friends that
have both survived and
passed from this awful dis-
ease," says Marie Mclvor,
Peace River Regional Medical
Records Director and 3-Day
organizer. "Since April, a dear
friend and colleague of mine,
Samantha Pritchett, and
myself, have been training at
the gym four days a week, to
prepare for this event that we
so look forward to each and
every year."
Like many group support-
ers, Marie and Samantha tried
to come up with creative ideas
to raise money for this event.
They organized hospital-wide

aged employees to wear blue

events, and with the support

and family, they were both
able to raise more than $2,200
each.

"As a woman, and as a

Cancer 3-Day is my way of
fighting back," Marie said.
"One day we will find a cure,
and when we do, I will be able
to say that I contributed to
finding that cure and saving
the lives of thousands."
Taking place in 14 cities
nationwide, the Breast Cancer
3-Day is a series of three-day,
60-mile walks that raise mil-
lions of dollars for breast can-
cer research, education, and
community outreach pro-
grams. Breast Cancer 3-Day
participants raise a minimum
of $2,200 and walk an average
of 20 miles a day, educating
tens of thousands of people
about breast health with every
step. As the primary benefi-
ciary of the Breast Cancer 3-
Day, Susan G. Komen for the
Cure receives 85 percent of
net proceeds, and the remain-
ing 15 percent goes to the
National Philanthropic Trust
Breast Cancer Fund. National
sponsors for the 2008 Breast
Cancer 3-Day series are New
Balance, Pepperidge Farms,
and LaCroix.

Keeping our community flu-free


As the school year begins,
children trek off to class,
returning home with artwork
and tales about their day-
and quite possibly a few
viruses and germs to share
with the family.
"It's never too early to worry
about preventative measures,
to stop germs in their tracks,"
advises Dr. Gladys Perez, a
family physician at Vallacare.
"Typically within a few
weeks of school, we see
teachers and students in the
office with viruses they have
picked up," Perez said.
While illness may be ever-
present on the playground,
parents who are sending their
children off to school general-
ly do not have the luxury of
deviating from their work to
A. Care for an ill child, and B.
Take the steps for to prevent
illness for themselves.
Fortunately, there are better
ways to battle germ problems,
aside from living in a bubble.
Here are a few simple steps
Vallacare recommends, par-
ents take to drastically reduce
the number of germs and
viruses being spread.

1. Enforce a regular hand
washing routine: Having chil-
dren wash their hands regu-
larly, develops lifelong rou-
tines. Many adults could use


a hand washing reminder as
well. A study at the University
of Minnesota showed that 18
percent of adults in U.S. do
not wash their hands after
using the restroom.
2. A shot of good health:
Vaccinations are the other
major step parents should
take to keep themselves and
their children healthy.
3. Making sure to eat
healthy and get enough sleep.
4. To prevent spreading ill-
ness, keep children at home
when they are ill. Keeping a
child home for at least 24
hours after symptoms appear
is recommended.
5. Keep surfaces sanitized.
How often are your washing
toys, tables, and other sur-
faces? While it may seem
mundane, keeping surfaces
clean is no laughing matter. A
university of Arizona study
concluded that over half of
the surfaces objects in homes
and schools had strains of the
influenza virus on them dur-
ing flu season.


Vallacare is fighting to keep
our community flu-free, and
we need your help.
In addition to taking per-
sonal responsibility for hand
washing and covering your
cough, get vaccinated.
Getting a flu shot is still the
best protection against the
flu.
Get yours this year for the
benefit of your families, co-
workers, and students, as well
as for yourself. And remem-
ber:
You cannot get the flu
(influenza) from the vaccine
- it is a killed virus vaccine.
Never having had the flu
does not mean you won't get
it this year.
If you get the flu after hav-
ing had the vaccination, it will
be a shorter and milder case.
The small amount of dis-
comfort from the vaccination
is much less than the many
days of fever and body aches
that accompany influenza.
In an effort to reduce the
amount of illnesses in our

Exciting advances in ophthalmology


Modern technology allows correction of cataract and astigmatism simultaneously


By NEIL B. ZUSMAN, M.D.
ZUSMAN EYE CARE CENTER
In the 20 years I have been
practicing ophthalmology, I
realized medicine is an ongo-
ing educational continuum
which requires a physician to
keep up with changing medical
technology. One of the most
exciting advances in recent
years is the advent of the Alcon
Toric intraocular lens implant
(see Figure 1). This lens
implant allows more accurate
and predictable correction of
astigmatism at the time of
cataract surgery.
What is astigmatism?
Astigmatism usually refers to
an irregularly shaped cornea
(the clear window in front of
the eye). This is caused by the
cornea being more curved in
one direction than the other,
much like a football (see Figure
2). This causes light to focus at
several different points on the
back of the eye, rather than
ideally coming into sharp focus
at just one point (see Figure 3).
Thus, even without a cataract,
depending on the direction of
astigmatism, vision will be
affected in various ways (see
Figure 4).
What causes astigmatism?
Usually astigmatism is
hereditary many people are
born with an oblong cornea,
and the resulting vision prob-
lem may get worse over time.
Astigmatism may also result
from an eye injury that caused
scarring on the cornea, from
certain types of eye surgery
(especially cataract surgery
done with large incision years
ago), or from diseases that
cause corneal thinning.
Astigmatism treatment
Astigmatism can be com-
pensated for satisfactorily with
eyeglasses and contact lenses
(both rigid and frequently soft)
in the absence of visually sig-

nificant cataracts. Astigmatism
in the presence of visually sig-
nificant cataracts can be cor-
rected with a technique know
as limbal relaxing incisions at
the time of cataract surgery.
This involves man-made inci-
sions in the peripheral steep
cornea to try to make it more
round. Although the technique
is successful, it can be impre-
cise, unpredictable, result in a
cornea perforation, infection,
and the treatment range is lim-
ited.
Toric intraocular lens
implants are specially shaped
to offset the imbalance created
by the irregular shape of the
cornea. Once implanted and
aligned inside the eye after
cataract extraction, they stay
fixed in place, thereby elimi-
nating pre-existing astigma-
tism. Thus Toric intraocular


lenses cannot only improve
vision by replacing a visually
significant cataract, but they
also correct for pre-existing
nearsightedness or farsighted-
ness and astigmatism. The
ideal treatment for astigma-
tism would be precise and
accurate, yield predictable out-
comes, and be permanent, safe
and convenient to use. The
new Alcon Toric Acrysof"
intraocular lens implant comes
very close. It was FDA
approved in September of
2005. Prior to this, Staar
Surgical introduced a Toric
intraocular lens in 1998.
However, due to its shape and
slippery silicone lens material,
it does not seem to be as stable
in regards to not rotating once
it is implanted in the eye. A
Toric lens must be aligned
accurately with the patient's


steep corneal curvature at the
time of surgery and remain
stable without rotation to cor-
rect pre-existing astigmatism.

Advantages of the
Alcon Toric intraocular lens
Designed to correct near-
sightedness or farsightedness
and several different amounts
of corneal astigmatism.
Rotational stability and
excellent centration due to its
tacky acrylic material that
adheres to the lens capsule
which "shrink wraps" around
it.
Decreased incidence of "sec-
ondary cataract" due to its
adherence to the lens capsule.
Patented yellow color (which
approximates the healthy adult
natural lens color) that blocks
blue light and may help pro-
tect the retina from macular


degeneration.
Significantly improved dis-
tance vision spectacle freedom
(one study indicated that 97
percent of patient's with bilat-
eral Toric intraocular lenses
were eyeglass free for all dis-
tance related tasks).
More biocompatible than
other lens implant materials.
Easy to use and does not
require new surgical skills.
The Alcon Toric lens has spe-
cific marks on the surface
(Figure 1); this enables the sur-
geon to align the lens precisely
with the patient's steep axis of
astigmatism. Alcon provides an
excellent Web site for the sur-
geon
(www.AcrysofToriccalculator.c
om) to input specific data for
each patient. The printout pro-
vides the surgeon with a pic-
ture demonstrating exactly
where to align the Toric lens in
the patient's eye (Figure 5).

Astigmatism treatment after
cataract surgery
It may not be possible to
fully correct patients with a
large amount of pre-existing
astigmatism. In these cases,
supplemental limbal relaxing
incisions or lasik may be help-
ful. The downside of this
includes a second procedure
which may be cost prohibitive
(lasik). I have found that even if
all the astigmatism cannot be
corrected with the Alcon Toric
lens, patients are still thrilled
with their improved vision and
decreased dependence on
glasses. In the near future,
Alcon plans to produce Toric
lenses with higher amounts of
astigmatism correction.

multifocal or presbyopia cor-
recting lens implants such as
Restore Rezoom or

are supposed to provide rea-

decrease spectacle depen-

disadvantages include glare,

icant out-of-pocket cost. To
date, none of them correct for

Although the Alcon Toric

increased glare or halos and is
not as expensive as the multi-

Although all of the new tech-

breakthroughs, I am most
excited about the Alcon Toric

important for the ophthalmic
surgeon to speak with the

ing his needs and expectations


in order to select the most

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 pub-
lic 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 educa-
tion in Sarasota, Manatee,
Charlotte and DeSoto coun-
ties.
A curriculum called
Families Building Strong
Bones was developed to
teach adult osteoporosis edu-
cation.
Participants will learn:
About osteoporosis and
how to prevent it;
How calcium, exercise and
vitamin D help build strong
bones;
How to identify risk fac-
tors for getting osteoporosis
like: smoking, caffeine, alco-
hol and lack of exercise; and
That medications are
available to help prevent and
treat osteoporosis.

North Port pulmo
support group
On June 21, 2008, Penny
Engel, of North Port, Florida,
was recognized for her out-
standing leadership of a local
support group for patients
with pulmonary hyperten-
sion (PH), a rare and deadly
heart-lung disease.
The Outstanding PHA
Support Group Leader Award,
presented by the Pulmonary
Hypertension Association
(PHA) at the 8th International
PH Conference in Houston
Texas, honored Mrs. Engel's
dedication to providing a
welcoming environment for
PH patients, families and
friends. The award also rec-
ognizes her tireless efforts to
raise awareness of PH, which
includes educating the gener-
al public and medical profes-
sionals in Southwest Florida.
Although Penny receives
treatment for her PH, her
struggle with the disease is
not easy. In the first half of
2007, she was hospitalized
nine times for PH-related
health problems. But ever
since her diagnosis, her
health hasn't stopped her
from fighting the disease, and

nary hypertension
eader honored
leader of the Port Charlotte
PH Support Group, which she
founded in 2001.
Since founding the support
group, Penny has helped to
bring people together to
share their experience and
knowledge and to fight for a
cure. In 2003 she helped
organize the Southwest
Florida PH Symposium in
Sarasota, Florida. The event
brings together patients,
caregivers and medical pro-
fessionals for lectures and
discussion on topics ranging
from the latest treatments
available to living with PH.
Pulmonary hypertension is
caused by high blood pres-
sure in the pulmonary artery
in the lungs, resulting in an
enlarged heart that can lose
its ability to pump. There is
no cure, and without treat-
ment 50 percent of patients
do not survive 2.8 years past
diagnosis. However, new
treatments and earlier diag-
nosis are beginning to paint a
brighter picture.

Support Group is one of over
