Postal Service considering local consolidation


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Due to a significant decline in
mail volume, the U.S. Postal
Service is considering the con-
solidation of its Manasota Pro-
cessing and Distribution Center
in Sarasota, which could affect
the future of its 375 employees
- not to mention mail delivery
in Venice, North Port and Eng-
lewood.
According to Donald Shan-
dor, plant manager at the center
at 850 Tallevast Road in Sarasota,
the Postal Service is hurting. And
that pain could very well trans-


late into significant changes in
the way it does business.
"(We're) facing one of the
most difficult challenges in (our)
history," Shandor said. "There
has been a continual decline in
single-piece, first-class mail vol-
umes over the past decade. The
current economic downturn has
led to an even greater decline in
volume with the loss of over 9
billion pieces this past year
alone."
Shandor said the Postal Serv-
ice needs to realign its process-
ing and delivery network to
match its resources with overall
mail volume.


Timbering at reserve


criticized, defended


"The reality is we have an ex-
cess of equipment, staff and fa-
cilities to process a declining
volume of mail," he said.
To deal with the problem, the
Postal Service has initiated an
area mail processing study at the
Tallevast Road center, according
to Communications Programs
Specialist Gary Sawtelle. The
study, he said, should be com-
pleted by Dec. 31 and could
reveal the need for possible con-
solidation of some operations
into the Tampa processing and
distribution center.
"It is just a study at this stage,
and it will look at all operations,"


Sawtelle said. "There is no way
to predict if any employees will
be affected until the study is
completed."
Too soon to tell
As for same-day service is-
sues in Venice, North Port and
Englewood, Sawtelle said the
study will look directly at that.
"One of the things the study
determines is if service will be
affected," Sawtelle said. 'And if it
looks as if service will be affect-
ed, they don't do it."
Nevertheless, Shandor said
that consolidating some postal
operations would make logical


business sense, given current
economic conditions.
"It would be fiscally irrespon-
sible not to do so," he said.
If the study supports chang-
ing mail processing operations,
a public meeting will be held to
allow the community to weigh
in. Until then, the public is invit-
ed to submit comments in writ-
ing to: Consumer Affairs Man-
ager, 6013 Benjamin Road, Suite
201, Tampa, FL 33634-5178
Sawtelle said that at present it
is far too soon to know how
many employees would be af-

Season on the line


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Sometimes you need to take
down some healthy trees to pre-
serve a forest.
That was the theme of a tour
at the Carlton Reserve on Mon-
day, at which Sarasota County
Commissioner Jon Thaxton and
Belinda Perry, manager of coun-
ty resource management, met
with three residents concerned
that too much timbering is tak-
ing place in the park.
Timbering is the process of
felling trees to create the space
needed to inhibit the spread of
wildfires. Once the trees are
taken down, prescribed burns
then take out the dried vegeta-
tion such as palmettos- that
can perpetuate and exacerbate
future fires.
The problem, according to
Sarasota County residents Char-
lie Sample, Paul Newhart and
Cliff Martinka, is that too many
healthy, needed trees come
down in the process. Those trees
are sold to logging companies at
$10.18 per ton, with the money
going back into the manage-
ment of the reserve.
Lumber sales so far this year
have totaled about $120,000,
according to Butch Mallett,
senior forester of the Bureau of
Forest Management.
Sample believed the practice
of clear-cutting was taking place
and the biggest trees were com-
ing down to maximize logging
profits for the county.
"I have a question about
whether timbering is good land
management," Sample said.
"Also, there's piles of wood that
have been sawed up and just left
out there from a spring cutting.
It's messed up trails."
Sample said the Carlton Re-
serve was originally considered


a wilderness.
"Well, there isn't much of a
wilderness left," he said, adding
that the county was profiting
from the lumber.
"Their thinning-out process
makes the forest too thin," he
said.
Human intervention
Thaxton disagreed.
"First, there's no money being
made out here at all," Thaxton
said. "What money that comes
from lumber goes into manage-
ment of the reserve.
"Our goal is to try to return
these (forest) systems as much
as possible to the way they were
prior to human habitation. Tim-
bering is one of our tools,
because we got so far behind (in
that effort). You get this un-
healthy and unnatural accumu-
lation of fuels, particularly con-
ifers, which have literally flam-
mable leaves. If you allow them
to multiply and overpopulate an
area, when a fire does come you
have large, catastrophic events."
Perry conceded that loggers
occasionally cut down swaths of
trees and leave piles of unusable
logs behind.
"That's because the area was
so wet," Perry said. "Rather than
having more heavy equipment
on the land, we had them pull
out. However, the contractors
we have now are on drier land,
and they will be picking those
logs up."
The group then visited sever-
al sites around the reserve that
showed evidence of tree har-
vesting, but none of clear-cut-
ting. Thaxton explained timber-
ing's benefits.
"There was a time that a light-
ning strike at the Caloosahachee
River would ultimately show up

State jobless rate at 15-year high


BY TERRY O'CONNOR
STAFF REPORT


Florida's 7-percent jobless
rate is the highest point since
December 1993.
An estimated 655,000 Florid-
ians are looking for work out of a
labor force of 9.37 million.
Statewide, 27,300 jobs disap-
peared in just the last month.
The unemployment pendu-
lum is now swinging so hard to
the jobless side in Florida that it
is not expected to show job cre-
ation until at least 2010.
The Florida West Coast, how-
ever, from Sarasota to Punta
Gorda will be shielded some-

2A SUN NEWSPAPERS ALM ANAC


One down,


two more to go


BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

Last week on our usual
Saturday morning bike
ride we decided to ride
over to the Venice Train
Depot and see how the
county was coming along
on the new bridge.
Located a few hundred
feet north of the depot on
the Legacy Trail, we were
surprised to see the new
bridge, which spans
Hatchett Creek, complet-
ed and open for use.
Constructed of heavy
wooden timbers, its
appearance fits perfectly
in the natural setting of
the trail. We stopped to
check out the view and


found it to be just what
we thought: beautiful.
The bridge is the first
of three projects that,
when completed, will
allow cyclists to ride the
Legacy Trail unimpeded
north to a point just
south of Clark Road in
Sarasota.
The word out of rumor
control is the two trestles
over Dona and Roberts
bays are now scheduled
to be completed around
the middle of 2010. Once
the trestles are complet-
ed, we will have an out-
standing 20-mile trail
system combining the
Legacy and Venetian
Waterway Park trails.
Ride safe, ride smart.

CITY NOTES


COMPILED BY NEWS
EDITOR GREG GILES

Lang elected
vice mayor
Council Member Sue
Lang was elected vice
mayor at the Nov. 25 city
council meeting.
John Moore, who held
the largely ceremonial
position for the past year,
said he felt it should be a
revolving position one
he held twice before.
"It's time for somebody
else to enjoy the position,"
Moore said.
Council Member Vicki
Noren said she thought
anyone named in the cur-
rent Sunshine litigation
shouldn't be nominated,
but her peers disagreed.
Ernie Zavodnyik nomi-
nated Lang.
Council Member John
Simmons nominated
Noren.
Voting for Lang were
Lang, Zavodnyik, Moore
and Martin.
Voting for Noren were
McKeon and Simmonds.
Search continues
without profile
With a deadline of Dec.
2 for applications for the
position of city manager,
city council on Nov. 25 was
still putting the finishing
touches on its profile of the
city to entice candidates.
No matter, according
to Slavin Management
Consultants. It's proceed-
ing without the profile
based on a job announce-
ment issued months ago.
The draft profile brochure
lists the attributes council
is looking for in a candi-


date. It also describes the
city and the challenges fac-
ing its next city manager.
According to City Clerk
Lori Stelzer, "Mr. Slavin
was very happy with the
pool of candidates already
and didn't feel it was nec-
essary" to complete the
profile immediately.
As of last week, with two
weeks remaining before
the closing deadline, 38
had applied for the posi-
tion of Venice city manag-
er, Stelzer said.
Council members agreed
to refine their thoughts
on candidate qualifica-
tions prior to the inter-
view process.
Public meeting
rules held up
City council held until
its next meeting the con-
sideration of changes to its
meeting rules.
Some of the changes
are minor, like taking the
finance director out of the
mix when it comes to
establishing who sits on
the agenda committee.
Other rules, like requir-
ing receipt of letters from
the public 24 hours prior
to the meeting, were more
troublesome for mem-
bers. Some members said
it doesn't encourage pub-
lic participation.
City Attorney Bob
Anderson said the 24-hour
rule was decided upon to
assist in quasi-judicial
hearings by the board.
He said it would assist
when faced with an attor-
ney or citizen who uses the
rule as a strategy. In quasi-
judicial hearings council
members are required to
have read everything on


the record, he said.
"I might bombard you
that day by showing up and
handing you 100 pages and
reminding you to review it
before you render a deci-
sion," he said. "And you will
have no choice but to delay
the proceeding. You might
have just played into his
hand."
Council members agreed
it was a potential problem,
but were pressed for time
to come up with a solution.
They decided to put it off.
Anderson agreed to
research how other local
municipalities are han-
dling the issue.
No increase
in impact fees
Venice City Council
took the following actions
at its Nov. 25 meeting.
Approved the Sara-
sota County's General
Government Impact Fee
and Interlocal Agreement
between the city of Venice
and Sarasota County as
well as the fee schedule
and agreement for the
county's Justice Impact
Fee. No increases appear
in any of the impact fee
schedules. Venice will get a
seat on the new County
Capital Projects Council.
Approved an amend-
ment to the Joint Planning
and Interlocal Service
Boundary Agreement of
Jan. 9, 2007, correcting a
scrivener's error that
showed some property
erroneously placed in JPA
Area 7 instead of JPAArea 6.
Approved on first
reading the rezone appli-
cations for two properties
in North Venice.
One is the VICA proper-


ty, 394 ares between Laurel
Road and Border Road
east of 1-75, from planned
commercial development
in the county zoning ordi-
nance to the city's residen-
tial, multi-family 1 zoning
district.
The other is the Bridges
rezoning, 146 acres near
the VICA property between
Laurel Road and Border
Road just east of 1-75. The
rezone changes its desig-
nation from open-use rural
in the county to commer-
cial, mixed-use in the city.
Adopted a resolution
indicating the city's com-
mitment to the national
Preservation of its Heritage
Assets program.
Help plan
Legacy Park
A public workshop takes
place Thursday, Dec. 4, at
2 p.m. at Venice City Hall,
401 W Venice Ave., so citi-
zens can share their vision
of the future Legacy Park,
located on the east side of
the Intracoastal Waterway
off East Venice Avenue.
The park will benefit
the public by:
Providing additional
parking for users of
Marina Park boat ramp,
Legacy Trail, Venetian
Waterway Park, Venice
Historic Train Station
and SCAT bus service
Preserving a strategi-
cally located area in green
space for perpetuity.
Providing a kayak and
canoe launch to Hatchett
Creek, concrete trails con-
necting the nearby trails to


Hatchett Creek, a wildlife
observation deck, land-
scaping with native vege-
tation, and restoration of
three stormwater ponds
for better drainage of the
area.
City council recently
approved the purchase of
the 10.2-acre site for $7.35
million, which is less than its
appraised value. Fifty per-
cent of the cost will be reim-
bursed by a grant from the
Florida Communities Trust.
The rest will come from 1-
cent sales surtax revenue.
The land was the site
of a cement plant until
recently, when it was pur-
chased by Waterford
Intracoastal Inc., a devel-
opment corporation that
planned to build condo-
miniums on the property.
The preservation of this
exceptionally located site
in the city opens the way
for future renovation and
improvements in the
Seaboard area of the city.
Before the city takes
possession, the current
owner will clear and clean
the property. The closing is
expected to take place in
about 30 days.
The workshop will pro-
vide an opportunity for
the community to suggest
additional ways of using
the property and identify
partnering opportunities
with nonprofit organiza-
tions and civic groups.

JOBLESS from Page 1A
might not be able to come
here in their usual num-
bers. We would expect it to
be slower than usual."
Job deterioration is
worst in the construction
industry, where Florida has
lost more than 72,000 jobs
in the last 12 months. The
state has lost 156,200 jobs
overall since October 2007.
At the apex of the build-
ing boom in 2005, con-
struction accounted for
8.3 percent of all Florida's
jobs. It's now 6.5 percent,
which is closer to the 2003
average of 6.7 percent,
Rust said.
Florida's unemploy-
ment rate was lower than
the U.S. rate during the
construction boom. Now,
at 7 percent, Florida is a
half-percentage point
worse than the 6.5 percent
national jobless rate.
"We're expecting im-
provement in the second
half of 2009 in the con-
struction industry after
some of the home inven-
tory is sold," Rust said.
"But the construction
market takes quite a while


for a correction. Employ-
ment will pick up as con-
struction starts."
Florida's scheduled
minimum wage increase
complicates job creation.
Lower-level jobs are ex-
pected to decrease when
the state minimum wage
rises Jan. 1 from $6.79 per
hour to $7.21.
Rust said the Economic
Estimating Conference
projected Florida's job cre-
ation rate would return to
normal in 2010 or 2011.
This is nowhere near
the worst construction job
implosion. In 1974-75,
Rust said nearly 39 percent
of all state construction
jobs were lost. Only 13 per-
cent of construction jobs
have evaporated in the
present downturn, she
said.
Jobless rates are up this
year in 47 states and the
District of Columbia,
down in one state Lou-
isiana and unchanged
in two states.

Thaxton said. "But now,
those fires are immediate-
ly put out. It requires
human intervention in the
form of controlled burns
(to achieve that)."
By the end of the tour,
Thaxton had convinced
his detractors that they all
had but one real sticking
point how dense the
pines should be in the


Carlton Reserve.
"We all have no real
problem with logging,
burning, roller-chopping

said. "The disagreement
lies in the age class of
pines that are taken and
the density of pines after
logging."
'And Jon and I will
never agree on what that
is," Sample said.

Manuel Jose de la
Candelaria Mier y Ponte
was born in Matanzas,
Cuba, on March 6, 1930.

to here is
an inspir-
ing life that
passes not
only great
learning,
but great
giving. In
Mier his 78 years
among us,
he received honors and
accolades from his home
country of Cuba. He
devoted extra time to
research in public health
and as a consequence of
his work, received from
the Cuban government
the highest award to a
physician, Orden Nacional
de Merito Carlos E Finley,
and the highest award to a
citizen, Orden Nacional de
Merito Carlos Manuel de
Cespedes. Although many
of these were for his
achievements in the med-
ical arena, many were also
for his expertise in a
diverse list spanning neu-
rology to African religions.
A published author, he
covered numerous topics
beyond his medical field
of expertise. His book,
"The Shark in the Dining
Room," gives us a unique
glimpse in to the revolution
and resultant rise of Fidel
Castro in Cuba, and he
wrote an unpublished book
of poetry, "Paper Boats."
He came to Chicago in
1956, where his career
took him to Northwestern
University Medical School,
Veteran's Administration
Research Hospital, Illinois
Masonic Medical Center
and Passavant Memorial
Hospital. In 1967, he took
a leave of absence and was
visiting a professor of
medicine at the University
of Cartagena in Columbia
and spent a year with the
hospital ship HOPE. He
arrived in Venice in 1971,
where neurology was
almost an unknown word.
Director of neurology, he
completely set up a state-


of-the-art neurology and
electroencephalography
department. He was chief
of medicine in 1973.
He is the recipient of
two bachelor of science
degrees and a master of
science degree. He is
a diplomat, American
Board of Psychiatry and
Neurology, a diplomat,
American Board of
Electroencephalography
and a fellow, Stroke
Council of the American
Heart Association.
Over the years he has
been a member of the
Florida Medical Associa-
tion, American Geriatric
Society, Sarasota County
Medical Society, American
Academy of Neurology,
American Medical Elec-
troencephalographic
Association, National
Stroke Association, presi-
dent of the Florida Society
of Neurology, and an
elected member of The
Society of the Sigma Xi,
dedicated to the promo-
tion of research and sci-
ence. He was the recipi-
ent of eight medical
awards. He taught and
instructed at University
Hospital, Havana, Cuba,
and Northwestern Univer-
sity Medical School, and
lectured around the world
in neurology, psychiatry
and neuroanatomy, among
many other specialties.
Skilled in scuba and horse-
back riding, he loved bicy-
cling, fishing and hunting
and was a life member of
the National Rifle Associa-
tion, a member of the
Sahib Temple, Sarasota,
Fla., a member Venice
Lodge 301, and a member
of the Scottish Rite in Fort
Myers, Fla.
Manuel was a physician
other physicians turned to
in their time of need. His
expertise went far beyond
that of a physician to that
of a healer. He addressed
the needs of his patient's
mind, body and spirit.
Never satisfied with his
level of knowledge, he was
a voracious student of all
facets of the human con-
dition. Giving of himself,

after his retirement, in
August 1992 he was a vol-
unteer at the Senior
Friendship Centers. His
greatest frustration was
that he ran out of time to
do more.
Perhaps his personal
creed can best give us
insight into the man who
was Manuel Mier:
"I do not choose to be a
common man. It is my
right to be an uncommon
man if I can. I seek oppor-
tunity, not security. I do not
wish to be a kept citizen,
humbled and dulled by
having the state look after
me. I want to take the cal-
culated risk, to dream and
to build, to fail and succeed.
I refuse to barter incentive
for dole. I prefer the chal-
lenge of life to the guaran-
teed existence, the thrill of
fulfillment to the state of
calm utopia. I will not trade
my freedom for benefi-
cence nor my dignity for a
handout. I will never cower
before any master nor bend
to any threat. It is my her-
itage to stand erect, proud
and unafraid, to act and
think for myself, enjoy the
fruits of my creations, and
face the world and boldly
say, this I have done."
He made his transition


at his home onWednesday,
Nov. 12, 2008.
Manuel was survived by
his wife of 27 years, Diana
Mier; three sons; seven
grandchildren; and one
great-grandchild.
His wife gave him great
joy and he was deeply
proud of his family. Perhaps
we can best sum this hono-
rarium with the words of
Thomas L. Odem, Jr.:
"I have no desire to
move mountains, con-
struct monuments, or leave
behind in my wake materi-
al evidence of my existence.
But if in the final recollec-
tion, the essence of my
being has caused a smile to
have appeared upon your
face or a touch of joy within
your heart ... then in living
... I have made my mark."
The world is a better
place because Manuel
Mier was here and there is
a hole in our hearts
because he is gone.

OPINION


OUR VIEW


'Paper or plastic' option on the way out


Say this for plastic bags: They can be
very handy. They also can be
expensive. A lot of oil is used mak-
ing them. A lot end up as litter, and they
don't break down easily in a landfill.
Overall, it's better to do without them.
The Sarasota County Commission
took an overdue step recently toward
reducing the number of plastic bags
going into the county landfill.
Commissioners agreed to begin an
effort to encourage people to pack their
yard waste in biodegradable bags. They
stopped short of banning plastic yard-
waste bags, but they could do so when
the current solid waste contract expires
in 2011. Residents still would be able to
put yard waste in garbage cans or use
large biodegradable, paper Kraft bags
instead of plastic.
Charlotte County has had a plastic-
bag ban for yard waste for more than a


decade. It works there, and there's no
reason it can't elsewhere. We hope com-
missioners decide to go all the way the
next time the question comes up.
But along with that, Sarasota com-
missioners have begun to talk about
ways to deal with the ubiquitous, thin,
plastic supermarket bags. While we
tend take a wary view of additional reg-
ulations, we strongly support a wider
community discussion about steps that
may be taken to cut consumption.
It's no radical idea. As solid waste
manager Larry Alexander told the
board, "That's why we see in our surveys
more and more people willing to do
away with (plastic) bags."
The anti-plastic movement is gaining
momentum throughout the world.
China recently banned the small
carry-off bags. China's 1.3 billion people
used more than any other country,


according to one source, which estimat-
ed that 37 million barrels of oil were
used to produce them.
Bangladesh first banned plastic bags
in 2002, after it found that bag litter
clogged storm drains and contributed to
flooding. Bags are also banned in South
Africa, Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda. A
ban in France goes into effect in 2010.
Ireland, Belgium and Italy tax them;
shoppers are charged for their use in
Germany, Holland and Switzerland.
In the United States, San Francisco
was the first city to enact an outright
ban, but other cities are making the
same noise. A ban will go into effect in
Los Angeles in 2010.
For the time being, we see no reason
not to first encourage the use of paper
or reusable bags whenever possible.
Many stores already do. Whole Foods
no longer provides plastic bags. Re-


usable sacks are prominently displayed
and available at a low cost in many
supermarkets; shoppers just have to
remember to bring them along when
they go to the store.
Plastic bags can be extremely useful.
Sturdy, waterproof bags are appropriate
for disposing of kitchen waste and lin-
ing garbage cans, for instance. But the
widespread, indiscriminate use of oil-
based, nonbiodegradable bags is non-
sense. It is harmful to the environment
and costly.
Worldwide, as many as 5 trillion plas-
tic bags are used annually, and it takes
more than 400,000 gallons of oil to pro-
duce every 100 million of them. They do
not disintegrate in the landfill.
There are better uses for the oil, and
better ways to carry our groceries.
Sooner or later, one way or another, this
will change.


Now, for a word


about our sponsors


MRY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


Remember the TV com-
mercials of the '50s and
'60s and how much fun
they were to view? They
actually made sense.
Today's commercials
more often than not leave
me confused as to what
they're even selling. Us-
ually, it's the remote but-
ton or "huh?"
I recently started recall-
ing some of those great
commercials and equating
them to today's world. For
instance, when I think
about our new Venice City
Council I ask, "Did we
trade a headache for an
upset stomach?"
Here are some more:
"Plop, plop, fizz, fizz!
Oh, what a relief it is!" The
election is over.
"Welcome to Marlboro
Country." Guess we've
arrived at the cemetery.
"Coke is it!" No, not the
white powdery stuff, the
liquid soft drink.
"Double your pleasure,
double your fun." In Ven-
ice, that means two-for-
one drinks and the early-
bird special.
"What's good for Gen-
eral Motors is good for the
nation." Would that mean
that I too could be earning
more than than $81 per
hour in wages and benefits
as an hourly employee? I
don't think so anymore.
"I can't believe I ate the
whole thing." Looking
back on the media cover-
age of the recent election.
"Where's the beef?"
Checking out your dinner
plate at the early-bird spe-
cial.
"Winston tastes good
like a cigarette should"
Now places where you can
enjoy that taste are
restricted and smokers are
angry. They whine and
complain because people
are still allowed to drink in
public. News flash: Their
alcohol does not affect my
liver.
"You've come a long
way, baby!" Yeah, now we
women are no longer
superior; we're equal.
"You'll wonder where
the yellow went." I'd sug-


gest looking in caves in
Iraq and Pakistan
"See the U.S.A. in your
Chevrolet." We'd better
hurry up if we want to do
that.
Well, those were the
days my friend, we
thought they'd never end
- but they did.
Taking that trip down
memory lane reminds me
that I worked on the sec-
ond floor of the General
Motors Building in Detroit
for the sales promotion
department. My boss was
a great guy from Minneap-
olis named Robert Lund. I
understand he now owns a
dealership in Arizona.
Well, back to the good
old days. In case you've
ever lain awake at night
wondering who invented
the word "automodeal,"
you can now rest, because
it was me. If you can go
back into ancient adver-
tisements for the Chev-
rolet and the Corvette, you
may even discover my face
smiling upon a few of their
fenders. I was very inno-
cent and happy, in those
days.
But one day riding
down on the elevator I
overheard a person joking
about taking some articles
home from their supply
cabinet. It occurred to me
that that was not some-
thing to be bragging about,
because if we all did that,
our salaries could be af-
fected. The mentality that
it is OK to steal from large
corporations is not good.
This is supposed to be a
humorous piece, but when
I think about "The Way We
Were," I want to cry. We
walked around with the
innocent notion that big
CEOs and labor unions
were fair and unselfish. We
thought our government
was there to protect us
from thieves, not be the
thieves.
Despite all the angst
and regret over the present
mess we're in, let's do an
Energizer Bunny and
"keep going, going and
going." Let's "snap, crackle
and pop" until we're too
exhausted to worry. Let's
swim upstream with Char-
ley the Tuna; let's make like
Muriel and invite the big
spender to "just pick me
up and smoke me some-
time."
Please, somebody stop
me!

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Wildlife Center part of a network


Editor:
The Wildlife Center of Venice would like to thank Lucy
Koitsch for her letter of support. We very much appreci-
ate her efforts on our behalf. We find, however, that an
explanation is in order.
The Peace River Wildlife Center, located in Punta
Gorda, and the Wildlife Education and Rehabilitation
Center, located on Anna Maria Island, are both wonder-
ful facilities with which we have been networking for
years. Their primary mission is also the rescue, rehabili-
tation and release of sick, injured and orphaned Florida
wildlife, including birds, mammals and reptiles.
With the closings of the Pelican Man's Bird Sanctuary
of Sarasota and Amberlake Wildlife Refuge of Eng-
lewood, the WCV has been the only active state and fed-
erally permitted wildlife rescue and rehabilitation facili-
ty in Sarasota County for nearly three years. We are also
aware of Save Our Seabirds' recent grand opening at the
former Pelican Man site and we are excited about receiv-
ing its assistance with the rescue and rehab efforts in
North Sarasota County.
To date, the WCV has treated more than 8,000 wild
animals and is in need of continued funding so that we
may serve those in need. We feel that previous state-
ments were merely trying to point this out, not to dis-
credit other reputable centers.

Linda Schrader
Co-founder
The Wildlife Center of Venice Inc.


They must
like company
Editor:
This is in regards to a
few different things.
The snowbirds: They
have Monday to Friday
from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. to do
their shopping and voting.
They get in the grocery
stores after 3 in the after-
noon and on weekends.
Then the people who work
have a heck of a time
shopping. They have all
the time in the world; they
do not need to clog up the


stores when people get out
of work.
They stand in the aisles
and you can't get by. There
is plenty of time for them
to do their shopping when
we are working.
Another issue: the per-
son who blamed the
Democrats for the way the
world is. Look at the last
eight years good, old
George Bush has been in
there. He is the one who
made the world the way it
is today. He will be leaving
office quite rich, just from


the gas.
Another issue: Once-a-
week garage pickup stinks.
Your garbage sits outside
for a week and smells and
you get all kinds of animals
around not a good idea
in Florida. And the cans
they give are way too
small.

Mrs. Robert Stickler
Englewood
No more business
bailouts
Editor:
Why are our elected
officials using our tax
money to bail out busi-
nesses that are misusing
their money and going
bankrupt? If these busi-
nesses can't control their
money flow, why should
we bail them out?
We have got to stop the
Congress from bailing out
another business. How
about using our money to
help us, since the money
being used has originally
come from us, anyway? By
us, I mean the middle class
- hard-working individu-
als who have supported
everybody else in this
country.
As the silent majority,
we need to voice our
objections to this misuse
of funding, loud and clear.
We need to complain to
our congressmen through
e-mails and snail mail.
And do it soon.

Wayne Spencer
Englewood


Her 2 cents on
'Nickel and Dimed'
Editor:
I feel that Ms. Cool is
rather harsh with her
report of "Nickel and Dim-
ed." Yes, it was long, but a
very powerful message
was conveyed by an excel-
lent cast who had no prob-
lems delivering their lines.
Becky Holoran was out-
standing.
A thought-provoking
piece of theater. "Well
done" to all involved.

Jill Underwood
Venice
Help needed for
the least fortunate
Editor:
Because of the major
and dramatic recession we
are all going through, we
are starting our Adopt A
Family For the Holidays
program now; the need is
that urgent.
We realize the great
challenges of this econo-
my everyone in our area is
facing. So it is with great
reluctance, but necessity,
that we ask for your hand
to help the 600 Sarasota
County families at risk, by
adopting a family through
Sarasota Adopt A Family.
Just call 955-6767 and
adopt a family. Or drop off
food, kitchenware, toys,
baby supplies, household
items, holiday decora-
tions, gift cards at Hot

WEEKEND EDITION NOVEMBER 29, 2008


LET 'EM HAVE IT: DO YOU THINK THE NEW SHARKY'S LEASE IS A GOOD DEAL
FOR THE CITY? CALL US AT 207-1111.


A lot of dollars, not much sense


Teed off. I suppose this could be titled, "Where is our
golden goose?" After the election, there was hope; then
came the vote to buy the cement slabs by the depot for
$7 million plus. I thought, now is the time for some com-
mon sense to appear, but oh no. Let's take $7 million out
of our city budget forever. Can you calculate what that
impact is for the next 50 years? Can we not see beyond
our noses, or is there far too much money available for
our city fathers to just squander? Why not buy a golf
course, call it a city recreational venue, charge nothing
and gloat over another so-called park? Geez!


Union label. There was
a letter to the editor about
unions and how they pull
down America. Well,
maybe up North or where
these people made a lot of
money, but down here in
Florida, we're anti-union.
We're a right-to-work state,
which means you make
less than any other job up
North, and they can make
you do anything they
want. A man on the radio
the other day said that the
average income down
here is $25 an hour. I'd like
to know where he works
because I haven't met
many people making
more than $10, and we're
lucky to make that. And,
every time something
happens, they cut your
work hours. I work in an
industry that's been here
for years. There's like five
full-time workers; every-
one else is part-time. You
go into work and they say,
"We're out of work, we
have to send you home." I

Trail, in The Landings Shop-
ping Center, Sarasota.
This year so many have
lost jobs, their homes,
their pensions, their sav-
ings everyone has been
affected. But these 600
families are at the bottom;
I mean, they have no place
to turn. Please find it in
your hearts to do what you
can.
Every year, Sarasota
Adopt A Family barely
does it, but accomplishes
the next-to-impossible, by
ensuring these families are
adopted and by providing
food, gift cards, toys and
donated items to these
families.
It's this year that we
need a true miracle.


wish that the people who
move down here and
already have their retire-
ment income coming in
could realize how hard it is
down here to make a liv-
ing.
Out of touch. I was just
reading this letter to the
editor about how the
writer is going to give a
chance to Obama and how
Bush's economy only
went bad two years ago.
Where has she been liv-
ing? I can barely make my
mortgage; I'm afraid of
losing my home. Bush has
poured all the money
overseas. All that money
that they have over in Iraq
- we're paying for
rebuilding their country,
while all their money just
sits there. Then she goes
on about black caucuses
and that we don't have
any white caucuses. This
woman is a typical North-
erner. I know a woman
who was waiting for a bus
and a black man came


These families live all
over Sarasota County,
North and South County.
We ask not for a handout,
but simply a hand up.
Without exception, this
year is the most daunting
of the 15 years I have been


near her. She told me he
was going to rob her, she
just knew it. She grabbed
her pocketbook, and lucki-
ly for her her bus came.
That's how people are
down here. They're com-
pletely out of contact.
They're not in touch with
black people. A racist is a
racist, no matter what.
Arrow needed. Grid-
lock is increasing. The
North Bridge in downtown
Venice going up paralyzes
the traffic in downtown
Venice. Please adjust the
traffic signals for east and
west drivers so traffic can
move when the bridge is
up and all the lights are
red. An arrow for cars
going west on Tampa
would really help. Please.
Great job. This is a big
thank you, thank you,
thank you from all of us in
Nokomis to the Nokomis
Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment, and I believe the
Sarasota Fire Department
was there also this morn-
ing, to put out the fire on
Kenwood Avenue in Noko-
mis in a trailer. If this had
gone on, many people
would have lost their
homes, trees and small
trailers in this cold and dry
weather. It was an incredi-
ble job they did this morn-
ing. I want to thank them
and give them all the love
from all of us in Nokomis.

Charlotte slips past Indians


Heartbreaker:

Lead disappears

in final quarter

BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

Troy McClary's knee was not
down.
Charlotte High School's
senior punt returned crouched
down to field the punt, made a
clean catch and sprinted 87
yards down the far sideline
with just 2:03 remaining. The
touchdown lifted the Tarpons
over Venice High School 25-21
in Friday's Region 5A-3 semifi-
nal at Powell-Davis Stadium in
Venice.
"It was probably an inch
away," McClary said of the
knee in question. "I saw the
end zone. It just opened and I
took the opening."
Charlotte advances to the
Region 5A-3 final against Largo
High School, 30-0 winners of
the other semifinal against St.
Petersburg High School. The
Tarpons must travel to Largo
Friday at 7:30 p.m.
Venice concludes an 11-1
season that held so much
promise.
"It hurts because, Charlotte's
a good football team, but we
killed ourselves tonight," Venice
head coach John Peacock said.
"We didn't accomplish our goals
(to win state), so it hurts."
Peacock lamented penal-
ties, 11 of them for 102 yards,
and that questionable call late
in the game, he said there was
"no doubt" about McClary's
knee being down. But none of
that matters now, because it is
the Tarpons, not the mighty
Indians, that are headed to the
elite eight.
"We've got to take it to the
next level now; we can't sit on
this," Charlotte head coach
Binky Waldrop said. "This is a
great win."
It didn't look like it was
going to end so favorably for
the Tarpons.
Charlotte fell behind 6-0
early on a 42-yard connection
from Venice quarterback Trey
Burton to sophomore receiver
Josh Boyle. The point after
went wide left.
The Tarpons drove 66 yards
in eight plays, finishing off
with a 14-yard touchdown run
by sophomore tailback Mike
Bellamy.
Venice answered with anoth-
er touchdown, this time on a 7-
yard dive by Burton. The two-
point conversion pass to
senior Robert Fordham put the
Indians up 14-3.
Charlotte put together anoth-
er impressive, 11-play, 64-yard
drive that ended with a 21-yard
Masters field goal.
"We had some great drives
in the first half and didn't get
the touchdowns we needed,"
Waldrop said. "We're lucky."

Leading scorer hurt in North Port loss


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High School boys soccer team
did not have a happy ending to the North
Port Thanksgiving Tournament Wednesday
at North Charlotte Regional Park.
The Indians (3-2, 0-1 in 5A-12) lost sopho-
more forward Joey Carlin to injury, then lost
the match 6-2 to North Port High School.
"He's going to be a tough one to replace
right there for a few weeks," Venice head
coach Seth Jones said.
Venice finished the tournament with a 2-
1 record with wins over Port Charlotte and
Lehigh high schools Monday and Tuesday.
Carlin, the Indians' leading scorer with
seven goals through five matches, reinjured
his collarbone late in the second half. He
fractured it earlier in the year during the
club season but had been cleared to play
varsity ball after it healed. He is now expect-
ed to miss at least a few weeks, but team-
mates hope he will return in time for the
District 5A-12 tournament on Jan. 26.
Venice was already shorthanded heading

into the match with the Bobcats. Javier
Aguadelo and Ed Delahanty, both kickers on
the football team, missed the game for a
morning football practice in preparation for
the Indians' semifinal playoff game on
Friday. Another handful of Indians were
absent, having already left town for


Thanksgiving.
"I would much rather have them go and
be with their families during Thanksgiving
time," Jones said. "We definitely were miss-
ing some key people today but, regardless,
we should have had a better showing."
North Port (7-0-1, 2-0 in 5A-12) jumped
out to a 4-1 halftime advantage. The first two
goals came in rapid succession off the cleats
of Jeromy Keen and Adam Freitas. After
Carlin scored his first goal on a penalty kick,
North Port's Birol Ferad extended the
Bobcats' lead to 3-1. Freitas, Ferad, Keen
and Carlin each scored another goal before
the final whistle.
"Sometimes when you get beat like that,
it's not such a bad thing," Jones said. "It shows
you what you need to go out and work for."
As a holiday tournament match, the loss
does not count toward either team's district
record.
Venice hosts Bayshore High School
Wednesday at 8 p.m. in a district matchup at
Powell-Davis Stadium.

INDIANS from Page 10A


"I felt pretty good about it. We were
moving the ball until we took that sack.
It's tough when it's 3rd-and-13 and
you're trying to make up for it."


-John Peacock,
Venice High School head coach


With their hopes
dwindling, Venice looked
to Burton to be their sav-
ior again.
He and the Indians
moved the ball on three
consecutive comple-
tions but a sack by
Edwidge Cherry and an
interception by Brandon
Ross put the game away.
"I felt pretty good
about it. We were mov-


ing the ball until we
took that sack," Peacock
said. "It's tough when
it's 3rd-and-13 and
you're trying to make up
for it."
Trey Burton account-
ed for 281 of Venice 288
yards of total offense. In
the absence of Dri
Archer (shoulder) it was
a different game.
"The only difference


from the first game is we
didn't have Archer,"
Peacock said.
Added Waldrop: "I
wouldn't call them one-
dimensional (without
Archer) because they're
a great football team ...
but it does make it easi-
er."

Co-housing idea gets boost from 'green' businesses


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


A "green" business coalition
has urged the board of county
commissioners to create a new
zoning district that would allow
development of more afford-
able housing, and require less
space than conventional build-
ings take up.


Termed "co-housing," it is
similar to the existing low-
impact planned unit develop-
ment in the county zoning code.
Such a development, accord-
ing to Mary Anne G. Bowie, an
urban planner, usually consists of
20 to 30 units owned by their
occupants and built around a
common building. It typically
includes a common kitchen, din-


ing and sitting areas, library, chil-
dren's play area and a laundry.
"Green enthusiasts are eager
for co-housing to get built
because it reduces the carbon
footprint and our impact on the
environment," Bowie said.
Studies show that residents of
co-housing communities use
about 25 percent as much energy
as conventional ones and about


half as much land, she said. The
individual homes are about 60
percent the size of the average
new model homes nationwide.
More than 112 co-housing pro-
jects have been built in the coun-
try. All are characterized by owner-
ship of individual homes and
equal sharing of common space.
The nearest one is in Gainesville.
Bowie described co-housing


as compatible with sustainable
design because it requires less
paving for parking and roadways.
About 200 green businesses
in the county support the pro-
posed zoning district. They told
the county commission that co-
housing projects could be devel-
oped within the existing zone
densities allowed by the county's
comprehensive plan.

Crocker is new Manatee Community College vice president


FROM MCC

Dr. W. Jack Crocker has
been named vice presi-
dent of academic quality
and success at Manatee
Community College.
Crocker most recently
was at Florida Gulf Coast
University, Fort Myers,
where he served in several
administrative positions
including interim provost
and vice president of acad-
emic affairs. He and his
family will relocate to



Census

work offers

$12.75 an

hour

BY TERRY O'CONNOR
STAFF WRITER

It's about time to be
counted again.
The U.S. census, the
once-a-decade exercise
aimed at counting every
American, will soon be hir-
ing part-timers to update
maps and addresses at
$12.75 an hour with no
benefits.
Unlike the year 2000,
the last time census takers
were hired, no jobs are
expected to go unfilled in
this tight economy.
Applicants must pass a
30-minute timed test and
are subject to background
checks. Hiring will be
based on needs of a com-
munity with larger cities
requiring more census tak-
ers.
Apply by calling (866)
861-2010 and leaving your
contact information.
Census representatives
will call select applicants
and may offer jobs for
work from February
through May 2009.
Expect to have some
competition. Florida's 7
percent jobless rate is at
the highest point since
December 1993.
An estimated 655,000
Floridians are looking for
work out of a labor force of
9.37 million.
The part-time jobs last
several weeks.
No experience is neces-
sary and training is paid
for by the U.S. govern-
ment.
Having transportation
is a plus but public trans-
portation can be used by
census takers in select
metro areas.
Census sites are located
in Sarasota, Tampa, Talla-
hassee, Port St. Lucie,
Orlando, Miami, Jackson-
ville and Fort Lauderdale.
The work is important
for a number of reasons.
Census data are used to
distribute congressional
seats to states, make deci-
sions about community
services and distribute
$300 billion in federal
funds to local, state and
tribal governments each
year.

MCC's
district
of Man-
atee and
Sarasota
counties
and he
will start
his new
position Crocker
in Jan-
uary.
In announcing the
decision, MCC President
Lars Hafner described
Crocker's multiple-state


experience as valuable
and emphasized his
extensive background in
and knowledge of Florida's
higher education system
as a strong factor in his
selection.
"Dr. Crocker will help
MCC achieve gold stan-
dard stature, both at the
community college and
hybrid four-year college
levels," Hafner said.
Crocker was selected
after the college conduct-
ed a national search. As


the college's chief academ-
ic officer, the new vice
president is charged with
providing highly effective
leadership in the adminis-
tration, planning, budget-
ing, evaluating and sup-
porting the instructional
credit and noncredit pro-
grams, activities and per-
sonnel, and assuring mea-
surable success in acade-
mic and instructional ef-
fectiveness.
In meetings with MCC
employees, Crocker said,


"I operate on respect for
individuals, collaboration
and transparency."
Crocker began his high-
er education at a junior
college in Mississippi and
refers to the community
college open-door policy
as a "noble mission, essen-
tial to keep."
'As MCC and a growing
number of colleges move
toward offering four-year
degrees, there is no reason
we can't do both really
well," he said.


In his academic career,
he has been a classroom
instructor, chaired depart-
ments and divisions, held
several administrative
positions, assisted in
fundraising and forged
institutional and commu-
nity partnerships.
Crocker is a poet and
writer whose works have
been widely published. He
has a new book of poems,
"The Last Resort," pub-
lished by the Texas Review
Press.

Methodists hold



final holiday



home tour

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


While preparing for their 47th annual Holiday Tour of Homes, mem hi -is
of the Grace United Methodist Church Women have been singing "Aul, I
Lang Syne." (Most say it translates to Old Long Ago.)
The 47th tour, scheduled for Friday and Saturday, Dec. 5 and 6,
will be the last such event.
All five tour homes are on the island of Venice, as is the church
where tour-goers can buy lunch Friday or breakfast Saturday. Both
will be prepared and served by the Methodist men's group. Tea, cof-
fee and sweets will be available throughout show hours at Mrs.
Claus' Tearoom in Punch Hall at the church, 400 E. Field Ave.
Also at the church will be Santa's Workshop, which is stocked
with handmade gifts and ornaments; Quilt Corner, with a variety
of quilted items created by the Piecemakers group at the church; and th,
Country Store, which will offer household items, jewelry, books an, I
more for sale in the Triplett Building at the church. c 0

'Auld Lang Syne'
Finding homes for tours and enough volunteers to serve as guides

Australia (PG-13) NEW
An English aristocrat inherits an
Australian ranch the size of Maryland.
When English cattle barons plot to
take her land, she reluctantly joins
forces with a rough-hewn cattle driver
to drive 2,000-head of cattle across
hundreds of miles of the country's
most unforgiving land, only to still face
the bombing of Darwin by the
Japanese forces that had attacked
Pearl Harbor only months earlier.

Four Christmases (PG-13) NEW
When upscale, happily unmarried
San Francisco couple Kate and Brad
find themselves socked in by fog on
Christmas morning, their exotic vaca-
tion plans morph into the family-centric
holiday they had, until now, gleefully
avoided. Out of obligation-and unable
to escape-they trudge to not one, not
two, but four relative-choked festivities,
increasingly mortified to find childhood
fears raised, adolescent wounds
reopened...and their very future togeth-
er uncertain. As Brad counts the hours
to when he can get away from their
parents, step-parents, siblings and an
assortment of nieces and nephews,
Kate is starting to hear the ticking of a
different kind of clock. And by the end
of the day, she is beginning to wonder
if their crazy families' choices are not
so crazy after all.

Happy Go Lucky (R) B+
In a shift away from his usual explo-
ration of the dark and dreary, director
Mike Leigh (Vera Drake) takes a lighter
look at life with "Happy Go Lucky."The
film chronicles the daily comings and
goings of 30-year-old Poppy, whose
positive, easy-going outlook epitomizes
the title. Poppy is a primary school
teacher, who lives in London with her
best friend Zoe (Alexis Zegerman).
Nothing truly remarkable happens to
Poppy, and yet, her boundless good
cheer and childlike delight make her
smallest endeavors incredibly engaging.

ban blue-hairs at the local regional
theater in Schenectady, N.Y, is looking
bleak. Worried about the transience of
his life, he leaves his home behind.
He gathers an ensemble cast into a
warehouse in New York City, hoping to
create a work of brutal honesty. He
directs them in a celebration of the
mundane, instructing each to live out
their constructed lives in a growing
mockup of the city outside. However,
as the city inside the warehouse
grows, Caden's own life veers wildly
off the tracks. The textured tangle of
real and theatrical relationships blurs
the line between the world of the play
and that of Caden's own deteriorating

Crisscrossing the equator in search



of George an) blue-foote) birbs


This is part three of a
six-part story about a trip
to the Galapagos Islands,
one of the most fragile eco-
systems on Earth. In part
two, which appeared last
week, the travelers boarded
the Ecoventura yacht Letty
and discovered cold Pacific
water at the equator

FEATURES EDITOR

Aboard the Letty
Our cabin had two
lower berths, new carpet-
ing, drawers beneath the
bunk and a closet that held
our hanging items and our
empty luggage. Our bath-
room had a large shower
plus a regular toilet and
sink set into a Corian-like
counter top. We had a win-
dow in the bath area and
another over our two
bunks, which was in the aft
cabin on the top passenger
deck, the Dolphin Deck.
We also had air condition-
ing. There were two cav-
eats: Do not drink the
water in the bathroom and
never put paper in the toi-
let, but in a covered con-
tainer that was emptied
twice daily.
The sundeck was above
us, and the dining room,
lounge and two cabins
were below on the Booby
Deck, with four additional
cabins forward on the Ig-
uana Deck below the con-
ference room. We gathered
nightly in the conference
room to learn the next
day's schedule so we
would know what to wear
and bring with us. The
bridge was open anytime
we wanted to go there to
see what was happening.
There was so much to do I
never did get there.
By 3 p.m. we had been
briefed, outfitted with wet
suits and snorkel gear and
had unpacked and were
preparing for our first out-
ing, a trip to the beach at
Playa Ochoa. It would be a
wet landing and an oppor-
tunity to wear our wet suits
for the first time and test
the snorkeling gear. It also

counter with sea lions.
They were all over the
beach and ranged from
toddlers to old bulls that
might be grumpy. Giving
them a wide berth, Mar-
tine took us up on the
sand as much as he could,
which meant the water at
the side of the panga was
only a foot or so deep. Our
big adventure had begun.
Playa Ochoa
Led by our guide, we
walked around the edge of
the beach, skirted the
groups of dozing sea lions
and then put down our
beach towels and donned
our wet suits for the first
time. As a child I spent
hours in water at least that
cold but as I felt the initial
chill on my toes, I was
happy to have the wet suit.
After swimming awhile
several of us sat on some
rocks to wait for the return
of the panga and to watch

and I joined a couple for
dinner with Captain Pablo.
Everyone was able to eat
with the captain once dur-
ing the cruise. We had
sailed around the point of
San Cristobal heading
northwest and then north-
east toward Leon Dor-
mido. That evening we
would sail north-north-
west, crossing the equator
as we headed on a 12-hour
run toward Prince Philip's
Steps and Genovesa Is-
land.
At the briefing we
learned that the morning
adventure would be a two-
hour walk and we must
always stay within sight of
the guide and on the des-
ignated paths, within the


black and white sticks. We
also were told to make
sure the flash was off so we
would not startle birds and
animals when taking pho-
tos.
"Don't take any food on
land," Margot said. "And
don't introduce any seeds
or anything like sand or
even pebbles from else-
where."
Red-footed boobies
Genovesa Island has
the largest population of
red-footed boobies in the
archipelago. We also might
see a short-eared owl,
although Margot said they
were a challenge to find.
We also would see frigate
bird nests, as the largest
colony of those birds is
also on Genovesa. Also to
be seen were three vari-
eties of the 13 species of
Darwin finches.
We saw everything she
said we would as well as
two owls. Actually, the

group from the Flamingo
spotted the owls and then
we backed up on the trail
to see them too. The boo-
bies' feet are not only
bright red but webbed. We
also saw Nasca boobies,
which are brown and
white and, when keeping
their eggs warm, rotate on
the nest to keep the sun
always at their back. In the
process, their tail inscribes
a circular pattern in the
sand where the nest is
located. The landscape
was quite barren for it was
their fall season. We saw
some candlestick cacti
and one black iguana. On
other islands we would see
hundreds of iguana in all
sizes.
Also there were frigate
birds. Males have a large
red pouch beneath their
beaks. They seemed to fol-
low our boat for the entire
week, occasionally drop-
ping "presents" on the
sundeck or occasionally
on lucky passengers, like
me, in clean clothes after a
pleasant shower.
Comfortable walking
shoes are so important.


The first day's walk was the
easiest but still too long for
flip-flops or even Top-
Siders. After the walk, we
were taken by panga for a
little deep-water snorkel-
ing. The deep-water
snorkelers donned their
wet suits on the beach.
Those who did not want to
snorkel were taken back to
the Letty. Heidi went snor-
keling, with her camera in
its underwater case. Two
people went kayaking.
There were two kayaks
aboard, although most
days the seas were pretty
rough and paddling was
difficult.
Prince Philip's Steps
We had left the Letty
about 8:30 a.m. and by
noon everyone was back
on board. Lunch was
served at 12:30 p.m. as the
ship headed off toward
Prince Philip's Steps
through Darwin Bay.
Lunch began with beef
and corn soup, followed by
a choice of chicken stew or
fried fish and french fries.

FINE WHINES

The time of the signs


4b .


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR
Remember when la-
bels, buttons and tabs had
actual words on them? No
more. Fast-food restau-
rants, for example, put pic-
tures of their menu selec-
tions on their cash regis-
ters.
I guess it's simpler to
show a picture of a ham-
burger than the word, and
it makes it easier to hire
someone for whom read-
ing may not be a strength.
After all, if you really mean
"fast food," every second
counts.
It certainly makes sense
in some contexts to have
signs for quick communi-
cation. At international
airports, people whose
grasp of the local language
is weak consider all those


BA


universal signs a lifesaver.
It's a little different, howev-
er, at the Burger Barn,
where the staff can reason-
ably be expected to be a bit
more conversant in Eng-
lish.
I'm as eager to get my
burger as the next guy, but
aren't we giving kids fewer
reasons to learn to read?
Reading is one of the most
amazing activities every
human can do. Think
about it: For hundreds of
years millions of people
have agreed, for no intrin-
sic reason, that "c-a-t"
refers to a furry, four-
legged feline animal. Why?
There were complaints
that the widespread use of
calculators eroded our
math skills why learn

your times tables when a
machine could do the job?
I think there's some validi-
ty to that. So, how do we
persuade students to
become proficient in read-
ing if most of the things in
their lives just require
them to recognize signs
and symbols? It's a dis-
turbing thought.
And if that's not bad
enough, we make the job
of learning to read English,
already a tricky language,
even harder. It's not bad
enough to subject school-
children to all those irreg-
ular verbs and the half-
dozen or so ways to pro-
nounce oughh"; we put
them into a world where
they can eat a Krispy
Kreme doughnut while


dad drinks a lite beer,
mom washes the dishes
with a Scotchbrite scrub-
ber and sister shops online
on eBay.
Great preparation for a
spelling test.
Here's what I tell my
soon-to-be 9-year-old, who
loves to read: "Son, there
are things in life you will
need to learn but will never
understand clicking
Start to turn off the com-
puter, for example. You can
either accept these things,
because you cannot
change them, or you can
question them and give
yourself a headache.
"If you do that, I recom-
mend you take an Aleve."

Family Week inspires



families to help others


Cookies for the troops


BY EDITH ALEXANDER

Each year, families
across the nation cele-
brate The Week of The
Family. This year, on Nov.
22, members of the
Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints in
Venice, observed the week
by donating a truckload of
food to the Salvation
Army. In addition to the
food, the families of the
church also contributed
new blankets and person-
al hygiene kits. The kits
were assembled by the
Relief Society of the
Church, the oldest and
largest women's organiza-
tion in the world. In this
small way, families of the
LDS Church helped fami-
lies of the community.
Church members also col-
lected additional food
donations from friends
and neighbors, to add to
the church's sizable dona-
tion.
LDS Church Assistant-
to-the-Bishop Robert
Deurkes presented the gift
to Captain Farrell of the
Salvation Army. Captain
Farrell was most apprecia-
tive as he remarked, "At
times recently, we have
been overwhelmed by
the number of people
who need help. I don't
think people realize just
how great the need is


PHOTO COURTESY OF CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS
Captain Farrell, left, of the Salvation Army is grateful for the
truckload of food donated by the congregation of LDS Church
of Venice. Assistant-to-the Bishop Robert Deurkes presented
the gift recently.


now." He expressed his
appreciation to the LDS
Church members for
their support at this criti-
cal time.
Since families are the
basic and most important
unit in society, keeping
families strong is in the
best interest of our country.
There are many small
but important ways to
help strengthen families.
Whatever the size or
makeup of the family,


activities such as sitting
down to dinner together,
planting a garden, involv-
ing everyone in cultural
pursuits, involving your
children in helping others,
teaching children to bud-
get their money, and hav-
ing real concern and love
for each other, can
strengthen family unity
and create successful fam-
ilies. By keeping families
strong, we keep our nation
strong.


PHOTO COURTESY OF OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL CHURCH
Sue Brenckle packs cookies that have since been sent to U.S. troops, compliments of
the congregation at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Osprey. Thousands of cookies,
cards and expressions of gratitude were sent Nov. 24 and will easily reach our armed
forces in Iraq and Afghanistan by Christmas, a church spokesperson said.

NOV. 29, 2008 WEEKEND EDITION


PHOTO COURTESY OF HEIDI ADAMS COVENTRY COOL
The sun was setting as the Letty headed toward this split rock formation in the Galapagos.
m-a IEI A 90. I-I I I


EQUAI U from Page6B
The corn has incredibly
large kernels and a bland
taste compared to Amer-
ican corn. For dessert
there was a platter of as-
sorted fruits, including
white pineapple.
While we ate, the boat
headed to Prince Philip's
Steps, where we walked for
a while, seeing herons and
swallow-tailed gulls. There
was beach snorkeling for
those who wanted to swim
with "friendly" white tip-
ped reef sharks. I opted for
free time on the beach, in
case the "friendly" sharks
didn't like me. We were
there from about 3 to 5
p.m. I saw sea lions. Heidi
did not see sharks but
some other swimmers did.
Again there were plenty of
sea lions, including a big
bull that had not been at
any of our briefings. It
came charging out of the


water at full speed and
headed almost directly
toward one end of our
group of beach sitters. We
all went scampering and
the bull knocked some
shoes hither and yon
before stopping on a dime
to begin its nap. No one
was hurt and we all had
something to chuckle
about as we reboarded the
panga minutes later to
return to the boat.
Everyone was showered
and cleaned up by 6:30 for
the next briefing and then
dinner. We were already
under way for a 16-hour
run due west, passing
Marchena Island during
the night en route to Isa-
bela and visits to Bachas
Beach and North Sey-
mour.
Isabela
Our wake-up call Tues-
day would be late as we
would not arrive until 9:30


a.m. at the widest point of
Isabela, the largest and
youngest of the islands. We
had crossed the equator
again. Shaped a bit like
Italy (the boot), it is esti-
mated to be about 600,000
years old. The oldest of
these volcanic islands are
thought to be Santa Fe and
San Cristobal, estimated
to be about 4.2 million
years old. As the youngest
island, with many volca-
noes, it also has the most
volcanic activity. Margot
said there was an eruption
in April and another back
in 2005. Neighboring Fer-
nandina also is still fairly
active.
Margot also said the
water was very cold here,
and we should expect to
see penguins who had rid-
den the current from Ant-
arctica. We did. They are
about 12-18 inches tall
and are fast swimmers.
Perhaps they stay warmer


that way. Margot was right
about the water. Feman-
dina, across a narrow
channel from Isabela, has
the highest concentration
of penguins.
We had our longest
panga ride of the week,
coming quite close to a sea
turtle that came up for air
just as we passed where it
was swimming. Sea turtles
found in the Galapagos are
limited to leatherbacks,
olive Ridleys, hawksbill
and green turtles. Greens
used to be prolific along
Venice beaches but were
nearly depleted by people
who ate their eggs as well
as the meat. Now protect-
ed, they are starting to
make a comeback and one
or two nests are found
annually on Venice beach-
es. Loggerheads dig the
most nests during the
Venice sea turtle season
(May 1-Oct. 31). Leather-
backs are most prolific on
the east coast of Florida.
When we finally got to
the island for our walk we
were rewarded with a hike
over fairly rough terrain
made up of a variety of
lava rock some ribbon-
like and some rocky. Those
who wanted to brave the
coldest water of the trip
could go snorkeling. About
five did so but not for


long. The penguins like the
cold water more than
most of us so we went
back to the Letty while the
bravest of the brave
snorkeled.
I got cleaned up and
headed to the sundeck
with several others to
await the snorkelers' re-
turn before lunch. My re-
ward was considered a
good luck omen. One of
the frigate birds dropped a
white present on my clean
navy shorts, sending me
quickly down the stairs to
take my second shower of
the day and change cloth-
es again.
The snorkelers were
back on the boat and at
lunch by 12:30 p.m. Cross-
ing the equator once
more, we saw some whales
and dolphins off the star-
board bow. Had we been
there in December, those
mammals would have
been elsewhere as the cur-
rents change at that time
of year and no longer bring
nutrients for those giant
sea creatures, Margot said.
Janet, our other guide, said
the best time to see whales
is from July through Sep-


tember. After lunch we
spent some time on Fer-
nandina, where we saw
thousands of marine igua-
nas. The largest are on that
island. We also saw more
sea lions, several baby sea
lions and the most colorful
crabs. Adults were reddish
orange with red, yellow
and blue coloring. They
seemed to clamber over
the lava. The babies
matched the black lava.
We took about a two-hour
hike over the lava fields
along the shore, walking
between the iguanas as we
went. It was less spooky
each time. While they look
like something from the
dinosaur age, they are not
carnivores and had no
interest in us.
Before dinner, we were
briefed for the next day's
adventures at Puerto Egas,
Santiago and Bartolome.

In part four, the
Ecoventura passengers
cross the equator yet
again, heading east and
south to Puerto Egas,

S l According
to a recent
population-based survey,
more than one-quarter of
all Americans experience
pain at any given time during
the day. The activities
associated with the highest
average levels of pain were lawn
care, care-giving among women,
1 and sports and exercise among
men. Moreover, blue-collar
workers were more likely to suffer
from daily pain than white-collar
workers. Now that we know how
prevalent pain is, the question is:
what do we do about it? For some,
"pain management" seems to be an
answer of sorts. This generally
involves masking pain with
medication, which has its risks.
Alternatively, chiropractic
suggests directly addressing the
underlying factors that cause
pain, as a means of eliminating
it. Which treatment makes more
sense?

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month


November is Lung Cancer
Awareness Month. It is going
to be easy for me to remem-
ber because my Stage IIIA
lung cancer was diagnosed in
the fall of 2007 and I began
initial treatments in
November of 2007.
I write a weekly column, a
diary that tracks my life as it
was one year ago, appearing
each Sunday in this section.
After being diagnosed, I was
absolutely shocked to find
out that lung cancer kills
more people than all the
other major cancers com-
bined, and accounts for 30
percent of all cancer deaths.
It kills twice as many women
as breast cancer and three
times more men than
prostate cancer.
Breast cancer's five-year
survival rate is over 89 per-
cent and prostate cancer's
survival rate is over 95 per-
cent. Lung cancer's five-year
overall survival rate is 15 per-
cent by comparison. The sur-
vival rate for Stage III and IV
patients is only 5 percent.
Yet in 2005 (the latest year
for which I have statistics)
breast cancer research
received more than $23,000
per death in Federal funding
and prostate cancer received
over $14,000 per death in
Federal funding. Lung cancer
research received only $1,800
per death in funding that
year.
I understand this year the
funding for lung cancer
research is down to $1,400
per death. The total funding
is not down; the number of
people dying from lung can-
cer is increasing, especially
women. (If you are old
enough to remember the
advertising for Virginia Slims,


HEAR SOI
LE
Charlotte DeS
206-1100 494-I


Thomas E.
Cappiello
'Living with cancer' W
you will make
the connec-
tion.) Lung
cancer used to
be prevalent mostly among
men, but it has become much
more common in women.
The Department of Defense
provided breast cancer
research funding of $1.66 bil-
lion between 1992 and 2004
and appropriated another
$150 million in 2005; for
prostate cancer the DOD pro-
vided $565 million between
1997 and 2004 and added $85
million in 2005. For lung can-
cer, the DOD provided just
$33 million in funding
between 1999 and 2004 and
added $2.1 million in 2005.
Does this make any sense to
you? Should we not be
spending more on the num-
ber one cancer killer?
Lung cancer has the stigma
of being a 'smoker's disease.'
The attitude seems to be:
"you brought it on yourself,
now live with the conse-
quences." So, there is very lit-
tle sympathy for lung cancer
patients and it shows in the
research funding.
But the facts are that 60-65
percent of lung cancer cases
are people who never smoked
(15 percent) or are former


(reformed) smokers (50 per-
cent), many of whom have
not smoked in decades!
Today's smokers contribute
over $8 billion annually to the
federal coffers. Should not, at
least, some of this money be
used for research to develop
techniques and protocols for
lung cancer early detection?
And why has the State of
Florida not spent a dime of
the $13 billion it received in
the tobacco litigation settle-
ment for lung cancer
research and early detection
to help future lung cancer
victims?
Today, over 70 million
Americans are at high risk of
contracting lung cancer. It is
one of the deadliest cancers
because there are no symp-
toms until the tumor has
grown or spread. Early detec-
tion is the key to survival.
Unfortunately, most lung


cancer cases are discovered
late at Stage III and IV -
greatly reducing the progno-
sis for survival. It is estimated
that low-dose CT scans of our
high-risk population might
increase lung cancer sur-
vivorship to 70 percent or
more! Why is this not being
done today? Part of the
answer is lack of research
funding for lung cancer.
It is in all our interests that
more be done now. This year
160,000 Americans will die
from lung cancer. That is
more than all the troops cur-
rently in Iraq. It is a fully
loaded 747 crashing every
day. If you agree with me that
more Federal dollars should
be used for lung cancer
research, make your opinion
known by writing congress or
signing the online petition at
www.lungcanceralliance.org/i
nvolved/lcam month.html

Learning hov


Dear Dr. Joan: Al-Anon is
a big part of my life.
Usually we talk about
the 12 steps. But last week, we
talked about "play." We dis-
cussed how, in a dysfunction-
al family, people often don't
know how to play. That hap-
pened for me, and I still don't
know how to go about learn-
ing.

Your letter wistfully
describes what happens in a
dysfunctional family. The peo-
ple in the family are usually
trying very hard to appear
"normal." They are deadly
serious about the attempt;
and, as a result, all lightness,
happiness and playfulness are
lost.
Very closely akin to the seri-
ousness of dysfunctional fam-
ilies, there are usually many
rules about what can and can-
not be expressed. In some
families, no one can show
sadness, and everyone has to
pretend a false happiness. In
other families, only the par-
ents can express anger. A child

growing up.
Frequently,
children's exuberance is seen
as disruptive and misguided.
Yet, when our natural spon-
taneity is misunderstood, we
feel disregarded and often
believe we're not worth much.
While this isn't true, the tran-


v to play

sition to good self-esteem and
appreciation for our feeling is
hard work. It's good that there
are organizations like Al-Anon
that talk about what was once
unmentionable and offer sup-
port.
After growing up in a dys-
functional family, one of the
legacies is that internal feeling
have not been expressed for
so long, we've lost touch with
them. Fears of expressing "the
wrong thing" have taught us
to play it safe and keep most
of our feelings inside and not
expressed. Our "playful child"
has often been lying dormant,
too. They're actually still there,
but expressing them is against
the rules we've learned.

is hard work


tuning in to our bodies where
the feelings reside. When we
do, we become aware of such
things as tightness in the
chest, knots in our stomach
and holding our breath. These
are messages that tell us
about the fears that still
remain beneath the surface.
The "playful child" has a hard
time having fun when they're
scared.
Steven Farmer, who wrote,
'Adult Children of Abusive
Parents," devotes several
pages to refocusing on play.
He recommends simply
watching children. This can
be difficult for some, since


we've been taught "child's
play" as a derogatory phrase.
Yet, we can learn so much
from how children do things.
Watch how they approach
others. Notice if there are
some children who play
alone. Do these children seem
truly happy? Which ones do
you identify with the most?
Following their lead can
make it easier for you, as an
adult, to enter into play with
children. From there, you can
observe at a toy store; and
eventually get marbles, jacks
or a coloring book and you
don't have to stay inside the
lines!

Putting steroids to good use: A long blog (Part I)


November 10, 2007

I am not sure what steroids
do for cancer treatment, but I
know they get me pretty
hyped up! According to the
nurses I asked, it is not
uncommon for people being
treated with chemo and
steroids to become energized
and sleepless. It's a common
complaint. So here I am again
at 2 a.m., unable to sleep and
raring to go like the energizer
bunny. I knew this was com-
ing. I should have hooked the
new treadmill up to a genera-
tor. I could have lit the city of
Punta Gorda tonight.
After dinner I did a little
work on my blog, called my
mom to see if she was getting
the blogs, and then sat down
to watch a movie, Godfather
III which I have seen a mil-
lion times, but Yoko didn't
really remember.


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
r- 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.


I love most mafia movies
(The Godfather Trilogy, The
Sopranos, etc.) I think part of
the reason is that I can relate
to the idea of family as it is
portrayed in these movies.
Michael Corleone is a tragic
character and so is his father,
Vito. They are heavily influ-
enced by Sicilian culture; they
did not start out as bad guys;
they were trying to take care
of their families and bring
"justice" to the world. They


come to realize that the world
is corrupt and that there is no
justice and really no differ-
ence between powerful politi-
cians (who are corrupt) and
powerful "criminals."
Michael and Vito Corleone
see themselves as people
aspiring to power and getting
what is rightfully theirs for
their family. They don't see
themselves as criminals. I see
them as heroic (albeit ruth-
less and immoral) but tragic
characters. They are brave
and willing to do things that
most other people would
never consider doing. You
have to admire their bravery


and their ability to commit
outrageous acts to further
their goals. They have a cer-
tain wisdom about people
and the world.
Anyway, at the end of
Godfather III, Michael
Corleone has achieved his
life's ambitions. He has extri-
cated his family from criminal
activity, he has won back the
love of his wife, he has
watched his son begin a
career in the "legitimate
world," he has confessed his
sins, and he has relinquished
his responsibilities as head of
the family.
He has abandoned ambi-
tion.
But the one thing he was
trying to do his whole life -
protect his family is lost.
His innocent daughter is
murdered in the end by a bul-
let meant for him.
What makes Godfather III
tragic is that Michael is not
killed his daughter is the
one to die. He lives to be an
old man. That is a tragedy
because his life's work all


he had achieved was in
vain. Without his daughter
living a full and happy life, his
life had no meaning.
He would not allow her to
be with the man she loved.
Symbolically, his success in
stopping the relationship kills
her and kills his family. He
dies unhappy and alone. For
Michael Corleone, it would
have been better had the bul-
let killed him.
At one point in the movie,
when Michael tries to con-
vince Kay he is not a bad
man, he says, "I would give
my soul for my family." I
think that sums up his think-
ing and motivation. Nothing
is too much for his family.
My father was that way. So
am I. I think most fathers
(Italian or not) feel that way,
which is why mafia movies
appeal more to men than
they do to women.
Women have different sen-
sibilities than men, but I am
not sure I have been able to
teach my girls about men.
They just think I am not like
them. I guess they will find
out soon enough. Just
remember girls, women and
men are nothing alike! And
double that if the woman is
Japanese and the man is an
American! (To be continued.)

I FACES & PLACES


Season of giving
begins early at
South Port Square
Area health care profession-
als got a head start on the
season of giving by donating
more than 70 new,
unwrapped toys for the Toys
for Tots program at a net-
working reception hosted
South Port Square on
November 6.
As guests were treated to
South Port Square's warm
hospitality, Sgt. Major Richard
Frattarelli spoke about the
history of Toys for Tots, which
started when the US Marine
Corps Reserves began collect-
ing toys for needy families in
1947. Since that time, the
Marines have distributed
more than 370 million toys to
more than 173 million needy
children. Frattarelli reminded
event guests that this year's
holiday season is expected to
be a tough one for families
struggling to make ends meet
in a worsening economy, and
thanked the community for
their gifts.

illness.
CHAP is an independent,
non-profit accrediting body. It
was the first accrediting body
for community-based health
care organizations in the U.S.
and was created in 1965 as a
joint venture between the
American Public Health
Association and the National
League for Nursing.
TideWell's CHAP accredita-
tion is effective from Aug. 1,
2008-July 31, 2011. Beyond
the accreditation, TideWell
received several commenda-
tions, specifying areas in
which the organization has
exceeded the requirements of
a high standard.
One commendation was
bestowed on TideWell for its
"effective and efficient man-
agement information system
utilized to ensure account-
ability at all levels of the orga-
nization."
Another commendation
states that the "comprehen-
sive Performance
Improvement process inte-
grates the organization's mis-
sion and promotes an organi-
zational wide approach that
selects, reviews and analyzes
outcomes specific to organi-
zational needs and the scope
of services and products."
The long term care interdis-


ciplinary team (IDT) meeting
process was also commend-
ed, as was TideWell's safety
team.
The accreditation letter
specified no action required
by TideWell Hospice and
Palliative Care meaning no
improvements were needed.
The CHAP accreditation is a
voluntary process. Together
with the mandatory licensure
by the Agency for Health Care
Administration (AHCA),
CHAP accreditation provides
assurance that TideWell
meets and exceeds the gold
standard for a high level of
care and maintains an ongo-
ing commitment to contin-
ued improvement and quality.
"We prepared for the CHAP
survey as an organization
over the past three years,"
TideWell Chief Operations
Officer Mary Ellen Poe said.
"Attaining the CHAP accredi-
tation means a lot to us, and
it is a tribute to the outstand-
ing teamwork among all our
care teams and departments."

dent, not-for-profit organiza-

Health Department
receives grant to expand
diabetes education
The Gulf Coast Diabetes
Foundation presented a
$1,200 check to the Sarasota
County Health Department
November 24 at the Selby
Goodwill GoodNeighbor
Center, 1781 Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. Way in
Sarasota. The presentation
coincided with the November
American Diabetes Month
observance.
The grant will expand the
health department's ability to
provide diabetes education to
clients served through the
Health In Motion Mobile
Medical Unit. The mobile
medical unit travels to sites in
north Sarasota including the


Selby Goodwill
GoodNeighbor Center each
month to provide diabetes
(blood sugar) testing along
with a variety of other health
screenings.
Representatives of the Gulf
Coast Diabetes Foundation
board of directors along with
executive director Walter
Konrady and Sarasota County
Health and Human Services
executive director, Bill Little,
provided brief remarks high-
lighting the long-standing
relationship that the health
department has had with the
Foundation. Bill Little also
discussed the importance of
community partnerships in
helping people to get needed
medical care. Mr. Konrady
encouraged organizations to
support the health depart-
ment's endeavors which help
people to address health
issues at their earliest treat-
able stage.
Studies show that people
who learn how to keep their
blood sugar at stable levels
are less likely to experience
circulation problems that
adversely affect the eyes, kid-
neys, heart and extremities.
Healthcare providers agree
that much of the work of
managing diabetes rests on
the individual.
Therefore, it is essential
that those living with diabetes
have the skills and resources
to effectively balance insulin
(medication), food intake and
physical activity on a daily
basis and to monitor progress
at regular intervals. Diabetes
self-management education
plays a key role.
The 2007 Florida Behavioral
Risk Factor Surveillance
System showed that of the
833 surveyed in Sarasota
County, about 8.4 percent
reported having diabetes. Of
these, just over half (56.2 per-
cent) reported that they ever
had diabetes self-manage-
ment education. County esti-
mates from the 2006
Community Health Survey
revealed similar findings; 8.7


percent reported having dia-
betes and of the 2,325 house-
holds surveyed, 15.8 percent
reported not having health
insurance.
Since early 2007, Health In
Motion Mobile Medical Unit
staff have been providing dia-
betes testing along with a
range of other health screen-
ings to uninsured and under-
insured residents who have
limited access to health care
services.
During 2008, diabetes test-
ing and education was pro-
vided to over 1,250 people
who visited Health In Motion
for health services. The grant
will allow many more people
to receive diabetes education.
The goal is to assist residents
in finding a permanent health
care provider to meet their
ongoing health needs.
Local public health officials
are enthusiastic about having
funding support from The
Gulf Coast Diabetes
Foundation as they look at
ways to enhance existing ser-
vices. For more information
about the Health In Motion,
call 941-861-5000 or visit the
Sarasota County Health
Department's Web site,

For us, providing the highest quality

patient care is not just a catch phrase.


It is a much more personal mission.


What makes Charlotte Regional Medical Center
employees different, what elevates them
from the rest?

It is the immaterial force and
individual knowledge within each
employee that when captured
and combined, provides the
human element of healthcare
that is so often missing.
Judging by the numerous
national awards, certificates
and recognition the hospital i
continues to earn, it is a
powerful equation.
And now there is a new reason to
celebrate yet another achievement.

Following an extensive on-site review, the Gold Seal of
ApprovalTM from The Joint Commission for
Primary Stroke Centers was received
-once again, renewing the
hospital's distinction as a
Primary Stroke Center.
This designation recognizes
the outstanding patient care
provided collaboratively by
the emergency medical
responders with hospital
staff and physicians. We are
proud to recognize these

that it takes something more than
just performing the minimal
requirements of a job to make a
real difference.

Practical collector car information


This column will be
the shortest one
since I began writing
these articles nine months
ago mainly due to the
Thanksgiving holiday
schedule, but also because
a photo session failed to
materialize. The owner of
the featured vehicle was
called out of town sooner
than expected. If all goes
well, on Dec. 5, hobbyists
and the general readership
will be pleased to see a true
early series muscle car.
Meanwhile, the Sun and
the Veteran Motor Car
Club of America would
like to thank you for
displaying your antique
vehicles during the
"Welcome Back" show
held Nov. 15. Interest in
the annual event contin-
ues to grow, both with
those in the hobby and
members of the public,
who come out to view the
vintage autos and trucks.
It was a pleasure to have



New

By ANN M. JOB
As if we need it, here's
more evidence that the
domestic auto industry is
hurting: Production of the
newest and most powerful
gasoline-electric hybrid
sport utility vehicles is
ending this year, just a
couple months after the
vehicles arrived in dealer
showrooms.
It's too bad, because the
eight-passenger, 2009
Dodge Durango Hybrid
and sibling Chrysler Aspen
Hybrid are roomy, capable,
fuel-efficient byV-8
standards, and full of
utility. They're also the
only hybrids on the market
to have a HemiV-8.
And despite the impres-
sive 385 horsepower that
the Hemi-hybrid power-
plant system generates for
the Durango and Aspen
Hybrids, these vehicles
carry the best federal
government fuel economy
ratings for four-wheel
drive, large SUVs in the
country.
Their 20 miles per gallon
in city driving and 22 mpg
on the highway rating tops
the 20/20-mpg of the four-
wheel drive, 2009 Chevro-
let Tahoe and Cadillac
Escalade SUVs, which have
332-horsepower V-8s.
The Tahoe and Escalade
also are offered in two-
wheel drive, with mileage
ratings of 21/22 mpg. The
Durango and Aspen
hybrids come only with
four-wheel drive.
Parent company


so many visitors take
employee-guided tours
through the Sun offices
and plant.
The Sun's Mid-Winter
Outing featuring these
great machines will be
announced some time
after the first of the new
year. Read the Wheels
Section, You Auto Know
column, published Fridays
for more information.
Our friends at the
Salvation Army, Charlotte
County, via overall Major

have far more requests for
help this season and need
extra donations. So if you
can give any type of
nonperishable food or
toys, please call them at


941-629-3170. On that
subject, this truly compas-
sionate organization's
long-range plans are in
the making for a gigantic
Replenishment Fund
Crusade at the new
Muscle Car City Museum
(in the former Wal-Mart
building), just south of
Punta Gorda.
Owner Rick Treworgy
and daughter, April,
operator/manager, being
the super people they are,
will make it happen
sometime after they are
up and running. Believe
me, it will be the cruise of
cruises as Rick always
does everything first-class.
I'll write more about the
subject and the museum
in general in future
columns. Punta Gorda
Herald Editor Gordon
Bower will be doing a
photo story of the autos
after they are ready for
display, prior to opening.

strong and powerful a
machine as any big SUV.
I loved how the Hemi
engine's 380 foot-pounds
of torque at 4,200 rpm just
took over when I passed
other cars effortlessly on
highways. And I never
lacked for horsepower. If
anything, I had to watch
the speedometer closely
because it was easy to
move right along in this
sizable SUV.
Other drivers didn't
notice this was a hybrid
SUV, and why should they?
Other than the words
"Hybrid Two-Mode Hemi"
on the fenders and
tailgate, there wasn't much
to tell them this isn't a
usual, five-door Durango.
Inside, it was much the
same, save for a gauge in
the instrument panel that
shows a driver whether the
hybrid system is charging,
whether the driver is in


economy mode or using
all engine power. There
also was a display screen
that could be posted in the
middle of the dashboard to
show a diagram of power
usage and generation as
the vehicle traveled.
Shifts from the automat-
ic transmission were
smooth, and there was no
hesitation or weirdness as
the power shifted between
electric motors and the
HemiV-8.
The only thing that
passengers noticed was a
high-pitched whine that
emanated from the electric
system. It was annoying
enough that a passenger
started to mimic it about
four hours into the drive.
The Durango Hybrid
uses regular gasoline, so at
today's prices, a fill-up of
the 27-gallon tank is more
than $62.
The Durango Hybrid


didn't have anything that
showed average fuel
economy, so I had to pull
out a calculator to figure it
myself: just over 19 mpg
for a loaded SUV making
good time on highways
and city streets.
The tester had side
running boards, which
came in handy to help
everyone climb up and
inside.
The standard rear camera
and sensors were necessary
during backups, though
after rainy weather, I had to
clean dirt off the camera
lens in order to see clearly.
The rear cargo floor was
up a ways from the
pavement at high thigh
level on me so items
need to be hefted upward.
The Durango Hybrid offers
102.4 cubic feet of cargo
space, with second and
third row seats folded
down.
