Sunshine motions heard but judge does rule

^.'" '*1 I i^H f l* --


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Defense attorneys were on
pins and needles Monday hop-
ing a judge would throw out
charges against their clients in
the ongoing Venice City Council
Sunshine lawsuit. But at the end
of the day Circuit Judge Robert
Bennett made no rulings.
The morning session began
with an hour-long pow-wow at
Bennett's urging among attor-
neys representing plaintiff


Moore


Anthony Lorenzo and defen-
dants Mayor Ed Martin and
council members John Moore
and John Simmonds. The judge
was hoping they could work out
the remaining document pro-


duction and related issues
among themselves, which they
did with a little prodding.
Bennett then went ahead and
heard arguments on their mo-

tions for summary judgment,
despite objections from Lor-
enzo's attorneys, who said it was
premature since discovery had-
n't been completed. Some of the


defendants have yet to be de-
posed, and 130,000 public
records turned over four weeks
ago hadn't been explored, said
Matthew Leish, co-council for
Lorenzo.
Council Member Sue Lang,
former Mayor Fred Hammett
and former airport advisory
board members Nick Carlucci
and Bart Bartanowicz have also
filed motions for summary judg-
ment, but they weren't argued

AG opinions key


in Sunshine suit


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Nearly all of the defendants in
the Venice Sunshine lawsuit
have filed motions for summary
judgment asking the court to
rule that their conduct didn't
violate the Sunshine Law or the
Public Records Law.
Seven of nine defendants,
have filed the motions, includ-
ing Mayor Ed Martin, Council
Members Sue Lang, John Moore
and John Simmonds, former
Airport Advisory Board mem-
bers Nick Carlucci and Bart
Bartanowicz, and former Mayor
Fred Hammett.
Motions are anticipated from
remaining defendants Susan
Balsinger and Paul Hollowell,
former airport board members.
The motions all ask Circuit
Judge Bob Bennett to rule for the
defendants based on a series of
opinions by Florida's attorney
general and selected court cases.
Most of the defendants' argu-
ments fall into one of the follow-
ing categories: the e-mails didn't
elicit responses or debate and
therefore are permissible; they
discussed previous decisions,
which also is allowable; they dis-
cussed issues the correspon-
dents did not foresee would
come before the board, also
allowable; or they were a simple
exchange of factual information,
also allowable under the Sun-
shine Law.
What follows is a summary of
some of the attorney general
opinions and legal decisions
attorneys are relying upon to
defend their clients.
It's important to remember
the AG decisions were specific to

A circus is coming to town


Locals rejuvenate Venice's
circus heritage by plan-
ning a specialty act trav-
eling show in Venice.
BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Cirquesa-Dreamquest Circus
is bringing its inaugural traveling
show to Venice Jan. 15-25.
It's the brainchild of a talented
group who've performed with
Ringling Bros. and Barnum &
Bailey Circus in Sarasota and
around the world.
They won't have far to travel
to pull off their first gig. Owners
of In-Entertainment LLC, Ivan


and Noe Espana, are brothers
who live in Englewood. Their
family has been in the entertain-
ment business for five genera-
tions.
The circus features specialty
shows like Defiant, a daring
acrobatic show, Cirquesa, a fam-
ily-oriented circus fantasy, and
Espana Extreme, an acrobatic
show with a Latin twist.
Acts include the Wheel of
Death, the Thunder Dome,
motorcycle on the high wire,
aerial chiffon, extreme bungee
trapeze, aerial hoop, head bal-
ancing and spinning trapeze,
high chair balancing, clowns
and more.
There are no animal acts in


the performances, and no alco-
hol is sold. (
The European-style tent has
seating, lighting, sound and
stage equipment, according to
the Web site in-entertainment.

Cirquesa-Dreamquest Circus

Bank foreclosing on Renaissance


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Waterford Companies Presi-
dent and Chief Executive Officer
Mike Miller confirmed Tuesday
that the company is trying to
resolve problems relating to land
and developments it is commit-
ted to in Sarasota County.
He also confirmed he had
that day received correspon-
dence from Orion Bank inform-
ing him it has filed foreclosure
proceedings against the Ren-
aissance development in North
Venice.
"In today's financial climate,
due to regulatory requirements
some lenders are forced to com-
mence lengthy foreclosure pro-
cedures while continuing to
negotiate terms and conditions


of new loan agreements," Miller
said in a statement. "Unfor-
tunately, due to the original
denial by the city ofVenice of the
Walmart site plan in November
2007, we were unable to close on
the $14 million contract as con-
templated. Although we were
successful in our appeal, we now
find ourselves in the current
economic downturn and are
making positive steps with
Orion Bank in restructuring the
loan so that we have time to
bring a retail anchor to the
Renaissance. We anticipate this
to take two or three years. We
appreciate each of our lenders
efforts in working with us to find
new and creative ways to survive
the financial challenges that our
entire country finds itself in."
Launched in September 2007,


the Renaissance was described
as a live-and-work center con-
cept. The 73-acre project at East
Laurel Road and Knights Trail
Road was to include both com-
mercial and retail development.
Initially, 300 multi-family
dwellings were to be built specif-
ically for workers in local com-
panies and retail stores. A pro-
posed Walmart was to be the
anchor for the development,
which likely would have includ-
ed fast-food restaurants, a bank
and smaller retailers.
The announcement was a
source of concern for residents
of the nearby Venetian Golf &
River Club and other people in
the area.
A revised plan was eventually

WEDNESDAY, DEC. 3, 2008 SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A


RULE from Page 1A
Monday. Motions are also
expected from former air-
port board members
Susan Balsinger and Paul
Hollowell.
To grant a summary
judgment for any of the
defendants, Bennett would
have to find that there is no
significant factual issue jus-
tifying a trial and that the
law is on the defendant's
side.
A literal reading of some
of the allegations against
the defendants requires
that result, their lawyers
argued, because they don't
show any violations, even
accepting that what Lor-
enzo says happened did in
fact occur.
Defense arguments
Attorney Hunter Car-
roll, representing Moore,
cited four Florida attorney
general opinions he said
show the allegations
against his client don't
amount to violations of the
Sunshine Law:
AG Opinion 1989-23,
which Carroll said states
that the use of a memoran-
dum by a city commis-
sioner to provide informa-
tion to the other commis-
sioners on a subject that
was to be discussed at a
public meeting does not
violate the Sunshine Law
so long as no interaction
related to the memoran-
dum took place among the
commissioners.
AG Opinion 1996-35,
which he said states that
a written memorandum
sent by one school board
member to other school
board members informing
them that the individual
member intended to rec-
ommend certain action at


a school board meeting
does not violate the Sun-
shine Law.
AG Opinion 2001-20,
which he said states that a
council member may copy
another council member
directly with a communi-
cation via e-mail so long as
the e-mail communicates
only factual background
information and does not
result in the exchange of
the council members'
comments or the council
members' responses on
subjects requiring council
action.
AG opinion 2007-35,
which he said states that a
city commissioner, out-
side a public meeting, may
send documents that
the commissioner wishes
other members of the
commission to consider
on matters coming before
the commission for official
action provided there is no
response from, or interac-
tion related to, such docu-
ments among the com-
missioners prior to the
public meeting.
"In the three counts
(against Moore) there are
no violations within the
four corners" of the com-
plaint, Carroll said.
E-mails show pattern
Attorney Andrea Mo-
gensen, representing Lor-
enzo, at one point admit-
ted that some of the alle-
gations on their face may
not appear to. be viola-
tions.
But she urged the judge
"not to look at it in a vacu-
um."
Taken as a whole, she
argued, they show a pat-
tern of what she believes
Constitute Sunshine viola-
tons that grew out of
secret meetings and


behind-the-scenes lobby-
ing using go-betweens,
with the intention of creat-
ing a unified voting block.
Carroll said that just
isn't true in his client's
case.
"My guy wasn't a part of
it. My guy had nothing to
do with it," Carroll said,
referring to the develop-
ment of an alternate air-
port layout plan devel-
oped by an ad hoc com-
mittee.
Ditto for his client, said
attorney Jeff Boone, repre-
senting Simmonds. He
said Simmonds was on the
opposite side of many
arguments about airport
growth from those elected
in November 2007.
"There may be e-mail
exchanges out there that
might constitute Sunshine
violations, but they aren't
part of the written com-
plaint before the judge"
against his client, Boone
said.
The specific e-mails
cited throughout the com-
plaint, Leish countered,
support broader allega-
tions and were inserted at
the behest of defense
attorneys who are now
arguing those specific e-
mail exchanges aren't vio-
lations.
"We are learningthrough
discovery some of their
characterizations"-of e-mail
exchanges and events that
took place "are not correct,"
Leish said.
Mogensen said defense
arguments "totally ignore"
the fact that Sunshine vio-
lations were in the form of
unannounced public
meetings via private e-
mail exchanges about city
business on personal
computers.
"There are other ways


to violate the Sunshine
law" than those outlined
in the attorney general
opinions cited by defense
attorneys, she said.
Leish said that because
discovery isn't complete,
they don't know what
other evidence may be
uncovered to support their
allegations.
His team learned only
last week when deposing
the city information direc-
tor that the city had not
been backing up its public
e-mail system prior to
June. Mogensen said that's
required by Florida's Pub-
lic Records Law.
Trial set
Bennett did not hear
arguments regarding al-
leged public records viola-
tions against Martin be-
cause Martin's computer
hasn't been forensically
examined yet. That's ex-
pected to take place this
week.
Bennett didn't rule on
any of the motions during

the hearing, but said he
would rule by late next

He did manage to com-
mit the eight attorneys to a
trial date. It will take place
the week of Feb. 23.
Bennett also told attor-
neys that another hearing
to finish consideration of
discovery issues and other
motions for summary
judgment would take
place before then.
Upcoming depositions
include Tom Slaughter, di-
rector of zoning and plan-
ning, newly elected Coun-

CIRCUS from Page 1A
performers were in Venice
Tuesday to seek approval
for a temporary use permit
from the city planning
commission. The permit
was granted by a unani-
mous vote after some com-
promises were made.
Venice Police Chief Julie
Williams requested in writ-
ing that the event be moved
to the airport festival
grounds to avoid potential
traffic congestion and to
eliminate what she called
unnecessary police safety
concerns.
In-Entertainment com-
promised by cutting back


its proposed hours of oper-
ation, offering to close one
exit of Venetia Bay Boul-
evard to create more order-
ly egress and ingress to the
circus, and even eliminat-
ing a few shows to scale
back the anticipated in-
crease in police protection
that might be required.
Williams originally esti-
mated it would take five
officers to staff the show,
but scaled-back plans
should require only two or
three, said circus organiz-
ers, bringing the estimated
budget impact down from
$14,200 to $7,000.
Events like this typically
require approval by city


council because they re-
quire some level of budget-
ing and usually take place
on city property, but this
property is privately held;
thus, the event did not
require council approval.
"The Venetia Bay loca-
tion is key to our success,"
said Ivan Espana.
The prime location
would cut marketing ex-
penses considerably, he
said, and allow the price of
admission to remain af-
fordable.
At $12 per ticket they're
also offering what amounts
to a dollar from each ticket
to go back into the com-
munity through a donation


to the Sertoma Club and
another dollar per ticket to
go to area schools. Com-
mission Member Jerrel
Towery did some quick
math and said he estimates
the contributions could
amount to $22,000.
Roots
The circus will consist of
three tents, a 118-foot
round main stage tent, a
concession tent and a VIP
tent. Performances will be
approximately two hours
with a 15-minute intermis-
sion. The main state tent is
designed to hold 1,002
seats.
Circus owners say they


estimate a car count of 239
per show. Shows will be on
Friday evenings after rush
hour and on weekends.
The site plan depicts 300
parking spaces with an
additional 98 spaces at
Casey's Bar and Grill
Restaurant, which recently
closed, as part of its lease
agreement. More parking
space was offered at a near-
bybank.
Sertoma Club Member
Don Hay testified before
the planning commission
in support of the event,
saying, "Just like the circus
of old, here people will be a
part of it."
He said the show will


help residents of Venice
look back to its roots and
would be something to
look forward to.
"We lost the circus
around 1992," said Com-
mission Chair John Osfnul-
ski. "For the psyche of the
city, we should really try.
This is going to attract a lot
of people to Venice and
area businesses."
"From purely a market-
ing perspective," said Com-
mission Member Jim
Bennett, "this location is
superb."

cation of information,
when it does not result in
the exchange of council
members' comments or
responses on subjects re-
quiring council action,
does not constitute a meet-
ing subject to the Gov-
ernment in the Sunshine
Law.
Are e-mails public
records?
(AGO 1996-34)
Question: Are e-mail
messages between em-
ployees of the property
appraiser's office or to other
governmental agencies
considered public records?
Answer: Yes. The defini-
tion of "public records" is a
comprehensive and all en-
compassing one and ap-
plies to all material regard-
less of its physical form or
characteristics. Further, the
legislature amended the
definition of "public rec-
ords" in 1995 to include
records made or received in
connection with official
business as a public record
regardless of the "means of


transmission," thus indi-
cating an intent to include
information transmitted by
computer.
Recommending
actions
(AGO 1996-35)
Question: Does a writ-
ten memorandum sent by
one school board member
to other school board
members informing them
that the individual member
intended to recommend
certain action at a school
board meeting violate the
Sunshine Law?
Answer: No. The mem-
orandum discussed in that
opinion did not solicit
responses from other board
members and there was no
discussion among the
members concerning the
memorandum prior to the
school board meeting, nor
was there any exchange of
correspondence among
the board members con-
cerning the memorandum.
The opinion notes that
the Sunshine Law is to be
construed "to frustrate all


evasive devices." (Town of
Palm Beach v. Gradison,
1974).
The AG's office previous-
ly concluded that the use of
memoranda among board
or commission members
to avoid a public meeting
may be a violation of the
Sunshine Law. Such a
memorandum is a public
record and copies must be
made available for inspec-
tion and copying.
Use of liaisons
(AGO 1996-35)
The attorney general
office has determined that
the Sunshine Law is implih
cated when a person other
than a board member is
used as a liaison among
board members. For exam-
ple, a city manager may not
ask each commissioner to
state his or her position on
a subject that will foresee-
ably be considered by the
commission at a public
meeting, in order to pro-
vide the information to the
members of the commis-
sion. (Blackford v. School


Board of Orange County,
1979)
Likewise, the use of a
memorandum to solicit
comment from other
members of the board or
commission by responsive
memoranda would appear
to violate the statute. Such
action would amount to a
discussion of public busi-
ness through the use of
memoranda without mak-
ing provision for public
input.
Memo OK, but
no interaction
(AGO 1989-23)
This opinion concluded
that the use of a memoran-
dum by a city commission-
er to provide information to
the other commissioners
on a subject that was to be
discussed at a public meet-
ing did not violate the
Sunshine Law so long as no
interaction related to the
memorandum took place
among the commissioners.
Foreseeable issues
The scope of the Sun-


shine Law is to cover any
gathering of some of the
members of a public board
where those members dis-
cuss some matters on
which foreseeably official
action will be taken by the
board. (Canney y. Board of
Public Instructidn of Ala-
chua County, 1973)
Secret decisions
The purpose of the Sun-
shine Law is to prevent at
nonpublic meetings the
crystallization of secret de-
cisions to a point just short
of ceremonial acceptance.
(New-Press Pub. Co. v.
Carlson, 1982, Zorc v. City
ofVero Beach 1998)
AG opinions carry
great weight
AG opinions are highly
persuasive in interpreting
the Sunshine Law and
should be given "great
weight" (Zorc6 v. City of
Vero Beach, 1999 and oth-
ers)

with their Caribbean Sno-Ball
cart for eight years. The cafe is in
the Robert L. Anderson
Administration Building, 4000
South Tamiami Trail.
"Visitors can enjoy breakfast
and lunch while renewing
licenses, vehicle titles, attending
court or petitioning for divorce,"
said the Albans. Serving health-
ful food including sandwiches,
soups, salads, paninis and spe-

employees working out of the
Nokomis office covering Osprey,
Nokomis and Venice.
Providing pest control and
lawn services, the company
offers a $1 million termite
damage repair guarantee on
qualified homes.
Kindle grew up in Grand
Rapids, Mich., and came to Port
Charlotte 30 years ago to partici-
pate in the boom years of con-
struction. In 1990 he became a
termite technician working on
pest control and lawn care, then
spent 10 years in sales. Two years
ago he was promoted to Venice
office manager.

Protect yourself





from cyber grinches


KELLI TARALA



This time of year everyone will
be looking for irresistible deals at
online retailers like Amazon.com
or Buy.com. With this increased
activity during the holiday shop-
ping season, cyber crimes are
expected to be high through the
holiday shopping season.
Since this time of year will be
a key money-making season for
today's financially motivated
cyber criminals, we need to pro-
tect ourselves during any online
shopping experiences.
In this article, we are going to
examine how shoppers fall vic-
tim to cyber crimes, what pre-
cautions shoppers should take
and what to do if something
goes wrong.
What they do
Unfortunately, there are many
ways to fall victim to cyber crim-
inals. They are financially driven
and well organized. While we are
not going to put them out of
business, by taking some basic
steps, we can make it difficult for
them to trick or con us.
The first step is using e-mail
in a smart, suspicious way. If you
do not know the person who
sent you an e-mail, do not open
it and read it. While it is tempting
to open it and see what it is, that
is exactly what the cyber crimi-
nal wants you to do.
Another tempting area for
most people is opening holiday
e-mails with games or cute pic-
tures. Those holiday-related
items generally hide bad soft-
ware designed to compromise


the security of your computer.
These malicious e-mails can
contain viruses and software
that create backdoor access to
your computer system.
Another potential e-mail
threat involves e-mails that look
like sales flyers. Legitimate com-
panies send out e-mails regard-
ing sales and coupons to poten-
tial customers. These e-mails
often contain links to coupons
on a Web site. Cyber criminals
send out fake e-mails that look
identical to legitimate compa-
nies' communications.
When criminals send spam
posing as legitimate companies,
this is known as "phishing." The
word phishing is a variant of
fishing and alludes to bait used
to "catch" passwords and finan-
cial information. This risk is that
a customer enters a credit card'
at this bogus Web site, and then
cyber criminals use that credit
card for more criminal activity.
If you have elected to receive
sales e-mails or newsletters from
companies selling on the
Internet, never click on a link in
an e-mail. If you want more
information, go directly to the
company's Web site. Open your
Web browser and type in the
address for the company.
Precautions to take
If you have decided to shop
online this holiday season, here
are some quick tips to protect
your identity and credit-card
information:
Shop reputable brands.
Never enter personal infor-
mation in a pop-up window.
Pop-up window s may be gener-
ated by malicious software
designed to capture your per-
sonal and financial information.
Do not use your debit card;
use a credit card instead. There are
more protections for credit-card
transactions than debit cards.
Use multiple complex pass-
words for online shopping sites.
Look for "https" at the top of
the screen. A web address always
starts with "http"; when the
address starts with "https," it
means a secure tunnel has been
created to transmit the credit-card


information. The information in
the secure tunnel cannot be read
without very specialized software.
Hence, it should be more secure.
Check the privacy policy.
Will this company sell your e-
mail to other companies? Will
the company protect your per-
sonal information?
If something goes wrong
Despite taking precautions to
protect your information while
shopping online this season,
you still may become a victim of
a cyber crime. If you notice that
your credit card was billed more
than the amount you were
expecting, or the merchandise
does not arrive when promised,
here are some steps to take:
Call the merchant. All legiti-
mate companies will have a
"Contact us" page on their Web
site. It should have a physical
address, a telephone number
and an e-mail address.
If you cannot resolve the
issue with the merchant, contact
the credit-card company and
report the fraud.
Contest the charges with the
credit-card company.
Contact the Better Business
Bureau for further assistance. Its
Web site is http://welcome.
bbb.org/. If it's a local merchant,
call the Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce at 488-2236.
Be vigilant
During this holiday season, it is
especially important to monitor
your credit report. Many victims
of cyber crimes do not realize they
are victims until they have lost
,money. '.The three major ,credits
reporting agencies -, Equifax.
Experian and TransUnion are
good resources to use.
Have a happy holiday season
and be safe online.

MainStreet building on success


KC QUARETTI-LEE



Over the past 20 years Venice
MainStreet Inc. has built and
maintained the gateway arch
and the Centennial Park kiosk;
secured funding for the inter-
generational fountain; partici-
pated in the restoration funding
of the Historic Train Depot and
funding for the Gunther Gebel-
Williams statue; provided podi-
um maps for the downtown
area; and financially supported
the downtown historic banners
and Christmas decorations.
We are placing window art in
vacant downtown locations and
are working with other service
groups to create three-dimen-


sional window displays.
Our four key arts and crafts
events bring more than 75,000 vis-
itors to our downtown annually.
Our volunteers act as good-
will ambassadors downtown,
helping with installation of holi-
day decorations and delivering
flyers and information from
Venice MainStreet Inc., our non-
profit and community service
brethren to the downtown mer-
chants and businesses.
Venice MainStreet Inc. hosted
18 free Friday evening concerts in
2008, bringing more than 10,000
residents into our downtown.
We publish a directory of
downtown businesses, maintain
a Web site filled with both his-
toric and current downtown
information and have created
and air, from Tampa to Naples,
four TV commercials geared
toward generating local tourism.
Looking ahead to 2009, our
goals are:
1) To continue airing the
tourism-generating commercials.
2) Create and air a weekly
cable TV program highlighting
all that Venice has on offer for
locals and tourists alike.
3) Increase the frequency of
the Friday Night free concerts to
twice monthly.


4) Continue our signature arts
and crafts events in downtown.
5) Host a lawn, garden and
flower weekend on Tampa Avenue.
6) Promote Venice tourism
throughout the state via rack cards.
7) Begin to promote Venice
tourism from European coun-
tries via the Internet.
8) Bring one in-season and
one off-season major street event
to Miami and Tampa avenues.
9) Secure phase-one fund-
ing for two major art projects
for downtown: statuary and
sidewalk art.
10) Fund historic Venice ban-
ners, holiday banners and podi-
ums with maps for East Venice
Avenue out to the bypass.
11) Build a mini gateway arch
in the median of East Venice
Avenue.
The goals are many but the
reward is high: economic and
community vitality, a city rich in
historic value and a downtown so
beautiful people call it paradise.
Thank you to all our mem-
bers and volunteers.
I wish you all a happy holiday
season and a new year filled with
peace and joy.

KC Quaretti-Lee is executive
director ofVenice MainStreet Inc.

Health kiosks debut at libraries


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Visitors to all eight Sara-
sota County libraries can
now discover new, interac-
tive, electronic kiosks filled
with useful health and well-
ness information.
Thanks to a four-way
partnership between the
Sarasota County Library


System, the Sarasota County
Health Department, the
Community Health Im-
provement Partnership and
the William G. Selby and
Marie Selby Foundation, the
kiosks provide a plethora of
data- from health info and
health-care tools to insur-
ance options and consumer
tips available at any user's
fingertips.


A $50,000 grant from the
SelbyFoundation supported
kiosk purchases for all eight
county libraries, SCHD's
Ringling. Health Center in
Sarasota, the Senior Friend-
ship Centers at 1888 Brother
Geenen Way in Sarasota,
and the Sarasota County
Administration Center at
1660 Ringling Blvd., accord-
ing to Sarabeth Kalajian,


libraries director.
"It's a touch-screen (for-
mat), so there reallyis more
friendly interface," Kalajian
said, "and we have in each
library several staffers pre-
pared to introduce users to
the kiosks. They will serve as
go-betweens in helping peo-
ple use them."
Kalajian said the single
touch-screen kiosk will
replace brochure racks and
bulletin boards as a more
efficient means for the pub-


lic to access reliable health
and wellness information.
The project received a
warm endorsement from
County Commission Chair
Shannon Staub.
"This is all about provid-
ing access to vital informa-
tion health and wellness
information for the people
who need it most," Staub
said. "From where to find
local health services, includ-
ing free or low-cost medical
care, wellness screenings


and chronic disease support
groups, the kiosks are a great
tool for the entire communi-
ty."
Kiosk content is also
available online at the CHIP-
Healthy Living home page
by visiting www.chip4
health.org/healthyliving/in
dexhtm.
For more information on
the program, call 861-5000
and ask about the CHIP
health and wellness kiosks.

OUR VIEW


Downtown Venice deserves better treatment


A sk anyone to list the things
about Venice that attracted
them here and our quaint,
charming downtown area will make
everyone's top three unless, perhaps,
you ask someone who saw it for the first
time the morning after the holiday
parade.
We love parades and we love down-
town Venice, but we don't seem to care
enough not to leave it looking like a frat
house the morning after the homecom-
ing game.
The entire length of the parade route
was littered with food and drink con-
tainers, flyers, the occasional strand of
beads, and candy lots and lots of
candy and empty wrappers. It took a
crew of Cubs Scouts from Pack 77,
pupils of the Student Leadership
Academy and their adult leaders more
than three hours to police the area and
leave it looking somewhat normal.
Now, the Scouts earned money for
their pack and the students got com-


munity service hours, but they worked
hard cleaning up a mess that shouldn't
have existed in the first place.
When you get a huge group of people
out in public for an event like this,
there's going to be some trash left
behind, but a few simple steps could
keep downtown from looking like a
landfill afterward.
First, it should be noted that most of
the people who brought or bought food
cleaned up after themselves pretty well.
Food and drink containers were a rela-
tively small part of the waste that had to
be picked up Sunday morning.
City trash containers were full to-
overflowing, however, leading people to
put their trash on top, where it was vul-
nerable to strong winds as a cold front
approached the next day. For special
events like parades there should be a lot
more trash containers in the area; if
possible, someone should be on trash
detail to empty them periodically. That's
common at other local events but might


not seem necessary at one that lasts
only a few hours. It is.
Second, parade participants are told
they may hand things to the crowd but
not throw them; unfortunately, the rule
is widely ignored, with people tossing
out candy by the handful in the general
direction of the spectators.
Enforcement of the no-throw policy
would greatly reduce the number of
candy canes, peppermints and other
sweets stuck to the street as ant food the
next day. It probably would also cut
down on the number of wrappers flying
around, though that's more the fault of
the people eating the candy than their
suppliers.
Another benefit would be a safer
parade for spectators. Heaving candy
around indiscriminately attracts kids
into the street to pick it up; that's not
safe. And several floats, especially the
pirate crewes, have people tossing
beads to the crowd. These cheap trin-
kets are especially popular, and people


yell to get beads thrown in their direc-
tion. More than a few strings of beads
were thrown at high velocity Saturday,
causing people to take evasive action.
Parade watching should be a noncon-
tact sport.
Finally, some thought should be
given to restrictions on handing out fly-
ers. As with candy, the goal of distribut-
ing flyers seems to be not to have any
left at the end of the parade. Unlike
candy, flyers aren't considered by many
to be something worth keeping, and
they tend to blow around. There was
more candy to pick up Sunday morn-
ing, but flyers were by far the most visi-
ble trash, and the hardest to chase
down. Maybe groups that want to hand
out flyers should contribute money pr
manpower to the cleanup.
Cub Scouts are taught to leave no
trace when they go anywhere. That's not
a realistic goal for the scene of a parade,
but leaving fewer traces behind would
help keep downtown Venice beautiful.


Tough choices


BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER


The school district has
indicated it will be $40 mil-
lion short. I am uncertain if
that is before the statejust
asked for $6 million back
adid an expected $8 million
more in January.
Let's hope those take-
backs are all part of the $40
million. The state gets
money back when projec-
tions for school counts end
up lower than what fund-
ing was predicated on.
If you divide the $40
million by $60,000, the
price of a teacher with ben-
efits, you realize you need
to reduce 666 positions.
Ouch! Of course, that is not
how they will get all the
reductions, but we know
that wages are more than
80 percent of the cost of
running the district, so that
is where most will have to
come from.
There has been a pro-
posal to change from block
scheduling at the high
schools to seven periods;
that would save about 70
jobs. The board has said it
would prefer not to do that.
It might once again look
at the 30 minutes it tacked
on to the school day a few
years back when money
was a-plenty. The positive
effect of the extra 30 min-
utes is debatable. For
instance, at least one ele-
mentary school took the 30
minutes and put it into
recess. There's some great
learning going on.
The board will leave no
stone unturned. It usually
looks at transportation;
reducing routes, not taking
school choice kids to their
schools and having central
pickup spots are among
some of the options.
When it comes to cuts,
usually the board starts
with custodial, cafeteria,
guidance, social workers,
and specialists, like reading
coaches. Much of that has
already happened, unfor-
tunately.
It may want to look at
extra money given to NeXt
Generation assistants, who
get a bonus to help guide
this technology. But in the
end don't be too surprised
if art, music and PE teach-
ers get reduced or cut. That
is the one area outside of
instructional staff the


board usually takes from.
One rumor is that aides
might teach some of these
classes.
The school board's job
right now is a tough one,
having to make some very
difficult and unpopular
choices. I'd guess there is
some regret over having
committed so much mon-
ey over the last few years.
While it's sad, we must
move forward the best we
can.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Is 'university' Latin for 'country cub'?


Editor:
Mr. Windgassen's letter concerning high college costs
cuts right through the balogna and reveals the true prob-
lem.
The TV news shows run a continuous bleat, telling us
that we need affordable education while blaming the
problem on everything but the obvious. Back in the '50s,
I graduated from a New York state college. We were
housed in oldWorldWar II Navy barracks, had a baseball
field and aWorldWar II gymnasium. On the positive side
however, there was no tuition.
Adjusted for inflation to today's money, the cost of
room and board and supplies came to only a few thou-
sand dollars per year. Now, it costs about $25,000 a year
to attend that same school.
How could that have happened? Try a swimming
pool, tennis courts, indoor racquetball courts and
upscale living quarters for openers. Oh yes, great pride is
taken that the students now get to choose from 12 food
stations.
The affordable school that I graduated from has
become a country club that kids from middle-income
families can't afford to attend.


Plenty of blame
to go around
Editor:
I was feeling sorry for all
the parrots that keep writ-
ing "Big Oil, Big Oil, Polly
want a cracker, squawk,"
now that Bush's term is
almost over.
Happily, they can train
the parrot to come in on a
regular basis with "Big
Auto, Big Auto" now that
their heroes Obama, Pelosi
and Reid have begged
Bush to bail out GM and
Ford. Maybe they could
throw in a second theme
and teach:the parrot to
praise the UAW since it
played such a big part in
getting them elected. I'm
sorry, I shouldn't say that;
these perfect Democrats
would never let contribu-
tions or votes sway them.
They are eager to have

Editor:
The liberal news media
that went ga-ga over
Obama during the cam-

pare him to President
Lincoln and are treating
him as if he were the sec-
ond coming.
If he promises to sign
the Freedom of Choice
legislation as he has indi-
cated, that is directly in
conflict with one of the
Ten Commandants: "Thou
shall not kill."
Then he may very well
be the second coming, but
it may not be the second

LET 'EM HAVE IT: SHOULD THE CITY CONSIDER TOUGHER RULES ABOUT THINGS BEING


Give the gift of life


ANNE K. CHINODA
GUEST COLUMNIST

What does everyone
have, yet everyone need?
You can give it, and get it No
one can recreate it and there
is no substitute for it, but
you can use someone else's.
Arid if you don't have it, or
get it, you'll die?
You guessed it The cor-
rect answer is blood.
What better time than
the holidays to kick off our
Season of Giving? Florida's
Blood Centers is proud to
partner with the Florida
Association of Food Banks
and Publix for this annual
campaign. Though many of
us are tightening the purse
strings, we might just be
more likely to roll up our
sleeves and give not money,
but our blood.
Perhaps it doesn't come
as much of a surprise that
throughout our community,
people are in need financial-
ly and medically. As Orlando
Sentinel columnist Mike
Thomas reported recently,
more and more Central
Floridians are turning to
food banks to feed them-
selves and their families
because of economic hard-
ship. This is a troubling truth
made more poignant dur-
ing the holidays, but there is
something that we can all
do that won't cost anything
but a few minutes.
The demand for blood is
especially acute. Medical
emergencies cannot be
scheduled, and our com-
munity's blood supply must
be constantly replenished.
Akt any given moment,
there's only 72 hours worth
of blood available. If a terri-


ble accident or natural dis-
aster strikes, the supply can
diminish in hours. Even
more daunting is the fact
that only about only 5 per-
cent of those eligible to
donate blood actually do so.
As the holidays ap-
proach, the need for blood
and food reaches a peak
simply because more peo-
ple are out and about
"bumping into each other."
You may ask yourself. What
can I do as an individual to
help meet my community's
need for these essentials?
We have an answer.
Make a donation that takes
nothing but time and gives
life, while receiving a free
mini physical that now
includes screening for dia-
betes. When you donate
blood with FBC through
Dec. 31, not only will your
blood be used to treat
patients in need atlocal hos-
pitals, you will also receive a
gift card worth $10 that you
can use at any Publix super-
market.
Alternatively, you may
choose to direct FBC to
donate the gift card to your
local food bank to distribute
to those in need. That way,
your donated blood, along
with the redistributed Publix
supermarket card, will stay
right in the community
where you donate and live.
Either way, you'll give and
receive. Even if it's just get-
ting a good feeling, it will last
far longer than the current
campaign.
To donate, simply visit
anyFBC branch office or the
Big Red Bus. To locate a
branch near you, call (888)
9-DONATE or visit www.
floridasbloodcenters.org.
Remember, like food,
there is no substitute for
human blood.
Anne K Chinoda is presi-
dentand CEO ofFlorida's
Blood Centers, which pro-
vides blood to more than 70
hospitals and medicalfacili-
ties in Central dnd South
Florida, includingVenice
Regional Medical Ceinter.

I recommend the self-service option


No wonder. If anyone at the post office ever wonders
why the public does not respect how they run their busi-
ness, here's an example of why. I was at the post office
location on the island Saturday and there was a big line.
There were two clerks working inside the counter han-
dling all those people, yet over at the self-service postage
machine where there were only two people waiting in
line, they had two employees to help expedite their busi-
ness.


No joyrides. I'm a retired
fireman and I'm respond-
ing to the complaints about
the fire trucks at Publix.
After speaking with the fire-
fighters, I've learned that
they are allowed one trip a
day to the store, anid they
usually make a stop at the
store on the way from a call.
Our firefighters and police
work hard to keep our city
safe. They're not just joyrid-
ing around town all day.
Firefighters and police
work long shifts and risk
their lives on a daily basis,
and you want to complain
about their lunch break. If
you run out of ideas, maybe
you could complain about
troops cruising around Iraq
in those gas-guzzling Hum-
mers. Keep up the good
work, guys.
This is change? Rather
a joke on people who
wouldn't vote for Hillary,
isn't it?Who do they think is
going to run our country
now with all these ideas of


new change? It's going to be
the Clinton years all over
again same old gang,
same old Beltway Boys.
Where is the new change
coming from?
Fact is. It's deja vu all
over again. As I read the
story about the mayor's
comments and attack,
quite frankly, on the city's
planning commission, all I
had to do was substitute
'Airport Advisory Board"
and here we go again. This
administration is incapable
of accepting criticism -
honest, constructive criti-
cism. The people who apol-
ogize constantly for those
who are simply unable to
accept factual information
need to wake up and smell
the coffee. This is getting
ridiculous. More than 40
lawsuits why? They are
incapable of listening to
factual information. Plan-
ning commission trying to
rewrite the plan no, the
planning commission is


trying to point out the
errors council has commit-
ted in rewriting a plan that
the state had little issue
with. Now they're going to
muck it up the same way
they mucked up the airport
master plan. They haven't
inherited problems, they
have created problems.
Enough is enough. People
need to get off the emotion-
al tirade. Factual informa-
tion speaks for itself. Let the
facts stand. Enough of this
dejavu.
Early bird. I was calling
about theVerizon telephone
bill that takes our moneyout
automatically for payment
They've always taken it out
nine or 10 days ahead and
others always take it out on
the due date or one day
ahead. Now we've got an
October bill that says that
Verizon's going to take it 20
days ahead.
Silliness. Folks, I hope
you are not buying into this
myth of having a fire truck
pick up food. This is
absolutely ridiculous and
unnecessary. Let's look at
the problem: how to get
food to the fire hall. First of
all, why don't we shop once
a week? Second, is there a
problem with taking a taxi
to pick up your food or
sending for food? Maybe a


volunteer could help out, or
an off-duty fire fighter
could help out. I don't think
there is a need to send a fire
truck or any truck at all to
pick up food. I'm sure if
there is a fire, the people
picking up food at Publix in
their truck are not wearing
their fire outfits and do not
have a fuil crew, so I don't
think they need to be there
with a big fire truck. It's
absolutely silliness. Come
on, folks, let's hear from
you.
Beware. This year there
is a $1 million traffic ticket
shortfall. Be watchful for
speed traps as the county
becomes more desperate
for funds. It's not safety, but
rather revenue enhance-
ment

With the major oil com-

looking for a taxpayer
bailout, why not try this
idea on for size: How about
the record profits of the oil

MR. SHEEPSHEAD




Tide, weather

improving

Starting today, tide and
weather conditions look
much better. For the next four
days we will have an incom-
ing tide each afternoon and
the wind should be light out
of the Northeast. That gener-
ally means that the surf
should be much calmer. I'll
take light wind and a high
about 71-74. Now, if only the
fish can read this.
Hopefully the pompano
will finally show up. The
sheepshead are around, but
they're not in an eating mood.
The best chance should be
jacks and bluefish. If you only
had one lure to use for these
predators, it should be a silver
spoon. If the blues are
around, you may want to add
a 1/4-ounce sinker to your
spoon rig. Many times the
blues are deep and you must
get down to them.
Many times this time of
the year, the fish go into the
Intracoastal to get away from
the rough and dirty water of
the Gulf. We are very fortu-
nate to be in an area where
there are still many public
places to fish from the shore
in the Intracoastal.
This is time of the year that
big jacks attack our beaches.
Last week it happened near
the Venice Public Beach. It
only lasted for a minute or
two as they chased 4-to-6-
inch greenbacks onto the
beach. This was a common
occurrence in late November
and all of December up until
two years ago. Hopefully, we'll
have this to look forward to in
the near future.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, we'll talk again next
Wednesday.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave
Hack. His column appears
on Wednesday. Contact him

Was McClary down


Troy McClary bent down,
fielded the punt at his own 13-
yard line and took it back 87
yards for a score. With 2:24 left in
the fourth quarter, Charlotte
High School took a 25-21 lead.
Just minutes after his game-
winning punt return, McClary
told the Gondolier Sun that his
knee may have been less than 1
inch off the ground as he bent
down to field the ball.
In newly released photo and
video evidence, it looks like it
might have been even closer.


Visit VeniceGondolier.com for
the photo. Search "Venice Mov"
on YouTube and you'll find the
video. You can draw your own
conclusions, but this much is
certain: It doesn't matter.
Two things happened on the
play in question: A) McClary's
knee may or may not have
touched the ground prior to the
87-yard run; B) McClary shed six
tacklers on his way to the end
zone no may-or-may-not-
have about it.
In football, the play doesn't


stop when the ball carrier's knee
touches the ground. The play
stops when the referee blows
his whistle. That didn't happen
until McClary crossed the goal
line. If the Venice faithful wants
to dwell on anything from the
play in question, it shouldn't be
McClary's knee.
Bad calls happen all the time
and sometimes you have to over-
come them to win a champi-
onship. It's not easy to swallow, but
without their top two running
backs in the game, Venice just was

Venice swats Sarasota sans stop


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


A shorthanded Venice High
School girls soccer team took
care of business Monday in a 4-2,
nondistrict win at Sarasota High
School.
Even without senior stopper
Emily Cremisio, who was out
sick, the Lady Indians held
Sarasota to just four shots on
goal. Senior goalkeeper Maria
Sloan, filling in for absent sopho-
more Ashley Weaver, came up
with two saves to give Venice the
nod.
"We did really well consider-
ing we had two or three players
missing," Venice head coach
Sheldon Chamberlain said.
Venice possessed the ball well
in the midfield and answered

maintain possession in Monday's
match with Sarasota.

Sailor goals when they needed to
in the first half. Sarasota took an


early, 1-0 lead on a goal by junior
forward Julie Taylor in the 4th
minute. Sophomore forward
Dana LaRocque quickly answered
for Venice, tying the match in the
same minute.
A breakaway goal by Sarasota
sophomore Liza Hutton gave the
Sailors a short-lived 2-1 lead in
the 39th minute. Again Venice
answered, this time on a goal by
senior midfielder Nelly Donets
just before halftime.
The second half was all Venice.
Sarasota mounted only one
attack and not until the final
minute. The Indians added goals
by sophomore midfielder Tori
Bolyard in the 60th minute and
LaRocque in the 65th.
"They didn't play a high pres-
sure game," Chamberlain said of
the opposition. "They gave us


)er, keeper:,

chances to pass the ball."
Sarasota bottled up a normally
potent Venice offense in spite of
the Indians' ability to possess the
ball. The Sailors double teamed
forward Tina Trujic for much of
the match, limiting the junior's:
shots. Still, Venice put 13 shots on i
goal. Sarasota keeper Sarah
Saxman finished with nine saves.
"Even though we possessed the
ball, we did finish," Chamberlain
said.
Venice plays host to District
5A-12 foe Southeast High School
Wednesday at 6 p.m. The match
is part one of a doubleheader
that includes a boys match with ;
district-opponent Bayshore High
School at 8 p.m. at Powell-Davis :

Habitat for Humanity may help stretch HUD funds


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


With $7.1 million in aid on the
way from the U.S. Department
of Housing and Urban Develop-
ment for a Neighborhood
Stabilization Program, local
organizations want to add their
own resources to the effort.
"We're very much interested
in participating," ,said Kurt
Rachwitz, director of develop-
ment and philanthropy with
Habitat for Humanity.
Rachwitz could not elaborate
on exactly how deeply his orga-
nization could get involved in
the effort before knowing the
required guidelines for alloca-
tion and use of the funds.
According to HUD, the funds
must "provide emergency assis-
tance to state and local govern-


ments to acquire and redevelop
foreclosed properties that might
otherwise become sources of
abandonment and blight within
their communities."
On Nov. 12, the Sarasota
County Commission approved a
strategy that could apply the $7.1
million to about 130 homes -
particularly single-family homes
- in North Port and unincorpo-
rated areas in Sarasota County.
"In North Port, the whole city
has a high number of abandon-
ments, a high number of foreclo-
sures and a high number of sub-
prime loans," said Susan Scott,
deputy county administrator.
"And with single-family homes,
we've got a lot to choose from."
In determining the proper-
ties to be acquired, staff would
consider:
proximity to employment,


opportunities
proximity to public trans-
portation
proximity to commercial
centers
housing cost to the end
user, including access to water
and sewer
any discount from market
value offered by the lender.
Options
Donald Hadsell, director of
housing and community devel-
opment, said the $7.1 million
could be split four ways:
$900,000 to acquire and
rehabilitate foreclosed proper-
ties for lease to families with
incomes less than 50 percent of
the area median income (about
$58,000 for a family of four)
$885,250 to acquire and
rehabilitate foreclosed proper-


ties for sale to families with
incomes less than 50 percent of
the AMI
$4,855,611 to acquire and
rehabilitate foreclosed proper-
ties for sale to families with
incomes less than 120 percent of
the AMI
$500,000 to administer the
program
"Habitat is an organization
that targets demographics like
those," Rachwitz said. "We also
have a program called Re-
Habitat, where we rehab houses
and condos for people who
qualify for our program."
The county is also devising a
foreclosure prevention program
aimed at providing financial assis-
tance of between $10,000 and
$15,000 to qualified, homestead-
ed homeowners with good credit.
"That's not intended to be a


grant," said County Administrator
Tim Ley. "It's a straight-up business
relationship. We (would) loan it to
you and you (wouldn't) have to pay
it back until you sell your house."
Funding for the foreclosure
prevention program could
come from the HUD grant,
along with sales of abandoned
lots in North Port and money in
the State Housing Initiatives
Partnership program, which
promotes affordable housing.
"The good thing is, between
what the government has done
with the bailout legislation -
requiring banks to renegotiate
mortgages and what the
courts have done, saying they
won't let banks into foreclosure
until they have done some kind
of reconciliation, there's an
opportunity to look for solu-
tions," Ley said.

Elegance reigns in the Pat Buster Gallery of the Venice Art Center,
site of the next big event in the yearlong celebration of the center's 50 th
anniversary.
On Dec. 5, those lucky enough to have secured one of the 102 available tickets will gather
in the gallery for-VAC's Golden Anniversary Tea Party.
Few events are more elegant than a properly prepared afternoon tea, served with tea
sandwiches, scones with Devonshire cream and preserves, tea breads, ffuit tartsand other
dainty dessert cakes and treats. At the art center, the event will be all the more special
because of the gallery setting, which currently reflects Florida's past and present.
Clyde Butcher's massive black and white photographs adorn gallery walls
through Dec. 24. In the middle of the gallery is a golden Christmas tree decorat-
ed by \AC Board President Tonya Sauppe. Tying in with Butcher's works, which
pay homage to the environment, are well-aged shells, naturally bleached to pure ',
white and used as ornaments on the tree.
"The tree is all gold for the anniversary." Sauppe said. "The
shells are 5 million years old." .

Throughout the year, the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce participates in
many community activities. As a business organization, it may surprise many
to find that the Chamber and its members donate countless volunteer hours
and resources to other local no-profit organizations that directly benefit the
Venice area.

Though the Chamber's mission is "Promoting Business Growth and
Success," the vitality of our community, in addition to the well-being of our
residents, is an important factor to our area's continued success. As such, the
Chamber partners with such organizations as All Faith's Food Bank, Cell
Phones for Soldiers, Adopt-A-Highway, the South County Family YMCA, the
Senior Friendship Center, Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice, and
many other local 501 (c)3 organizations.

Currently, the Chamber is actively involved in collecting food for the holiday
food drive orchestrated by All Faith's Food Bank. The Chamber has donation
boxes in the office location, as well as at all of its networking events. All food
collected by the Chamber will be given to All Faith's Foaod Bank which works
directly with families in need within Sarasota County.

Additionally, the Chamber's Senior Outreach Commitee is once again
partnering with the Senior Friendship Center to collect and produce "Senior
Santa Shoeboxes." Requests have been made to the Chamber's member-
ship to supply much needed items such as shampoo, tissues, socks, jar


openers, toothpaste, and other personal items. Each year, Chamber mem-
bers donate enough items to create over 100 gift boxes which are then
distributed to area seniors who are in need.

The Adopt-A-Highway Program is another activity that the Chamber partici-
pates in within our area. The Venice Area Young Professionals spearhead
this effort and receive the help from our full membership to complete this
quarterly task which helps beautify our community.

This year, the Chamber has also taken part in the national campaign, Cell
Phones for Soldiers, a program which uses the proceeds from donated, then
recycled phones to purchase phone cards for soldiers who are currently
serving overseas. So far, with the generous donations from the community, as
well as members from the local VFW and American Legion, the Chamber has
sent away over 301bs of phones to the program.

It's not "All Business, All TheTime" for Chamber members. Many of our 1,200
business members donate their time and money to make our area the won-
derful place it is to live and visit! We Would like to thank all of our members for
their generosity and their commitment to ensuring the quality of life we are able
to enjoy in the Venice Area.

If you would like to participate in any of the Chamber's charitable activities,
please contact the VACC at 941-488-2236. Happy Holidays!

A Because you initially made a
jump shift with this two-suiter (we
would not have), bidding clubs now
is a waste of time and space. You
know you have at least an eight-card
fit in spades, but partner does not. It
is your duty to inform him of that.
Bid three spades to allow the investi-

Partner opens the bidding with one
spade. What do you respond?
A No spade raise does this hand jus-
tice. Even responding two diamonds
and then vigorously raising spades
would be an understatement. Jump
shift to three diamonds and then sup-
port spades. This hand meets one of
the criteria for a jump shift a pow-
erful fit in opener's suit.

Partner opens the bidding with one
spade. What do you respond?
A Do you prefer overbidding or
underbidding? You have a good 10
points, including two aces, but your
doubleton spade is a flaw. If you
make a two-over-one response, the
subsequent bidding could be hard to
control. Bid one no trump. You can
handle any rebid by partner and,
should he pass, you are probably in
the right spot.
Q 6 Vulnerable, as South, you hold:
A 83 AJ9542 o92 4K98
Your left-hand opponent's opening
bid of one spade gets passed round to
you. What action do you take?
A You don't have much. However,
partner could be pretty strong and not
be able to act because of spade
strength or heart shortness. It is
incumbent on you to tell partner you
have some values and a long suit by
balancing with two hearts.

Would
you have
guessed that
cheerleading accounted for
two-thirds of all
catastrophic injuries
experienced by high school and
college female athletes over the
past 25 years? In the 25-year
period studied, there were 103
fatal, disabling or serious injuries
reported among female high school
athletes, the vast majority of which
(67) were cheerleading-related.
During the same period, there were 39
such injuries among female college
athletes, with 26 due to cheerleading. As
cheerleading's gymnastic-type stunts
become increasingly difficult, young
female athletes must pay the same
attention to flexibility and strength that
any athlete would. "This entails
incorporating chiropractic care into
their training regimen as many
Olympic-caliber and professional
athletes have already done.
P.S. Four chiropractors
accompanied the 62-member U.S.
Olympic health care team for the
2008 Olympic Games in Beijing,
helping to optimize performance
outcomes for many of the 600 U.S.
athletes.


I payment, or e reimbursed for payment for any other service, examination, or treatment that is
performed as a result of and within 72 hours of responding to the advertisement for the free,

*C.hurch holiday bazaars
help everyone celebrate an
old-fashioned Christmas.
Homemade baked goods.
jams and ornaments remind
us of a time before iPods
and Walmart when families
made their gifts.
I spend Saturday morn-
ings visiting bazaars. I love
meeting friends and enjoy-
ing the day. Betty and Paul
Intagliatta and I recently


met at the Bay Indies sale
and spent time over coffee
and luscious chocolate
doughnuts. Life in Venice is
good.
Celebrating veterans
The Venice Concert Band,
under the direction of Bill
Millner,. celebrated veterans
w ith a special concert. My
heart swelled as the crowd at
the Venice Community
Center sang the national
anthem. As our country
embraces change. my hope is
everyone will sing the nation-
al anthem atrevents, especial--
ly at school functons.
Tickets for the Venice
Concert Band Holiday Con-
cert will be on sale on Dec. 8
