against vice mayor


Yes, Virginia, there are hungry people in Venice


Phyllis Watson, left, gets a hug from Karin Barbito, Trinity Presbyterian Church Community Assistance Ministry
director, after she has shopped for food at the pantry. Watson has been shopping at the pantry for two years.
She has a 13-year-old son. "I don't know how I could feed my son without this food pantry," she said. Watson is
looking for work and has experience in cashiering, housekeeping and customer service.


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR


"In these days of difficulty, we Americans every-
where must and shall choose the path ofsocialjus-
tice, the path of faith, the path of hope and the
path of love toward our fellow men."]
Volunteers at local food pantries are doing
their best to practice the above message delivered
by Theodore Roosevelt in his campaign address
in Detroit, Mich., on Oct. 2, 1932.
Still, 72 years later, people in America are going
to bed hungry.
Food pantry volunteers are making heroic
efforts to feed them despite the economy. The
pantry shelves, however, are nearly bare.
And still, in increasing numbers, they come
asking for food.
They're old, young, the working poor and the
unemployed. They're our neighbors, our best
friends, ur families. They're our children and our
grandchildren. They are the ones who previously
donated to the food pantries, and, now, they are
hungry.
Recently, the Federal Reserve released projec-
tions that unemployment will rise between 7,1
percent and 7.6 percent in 2009. That means the
future isn't looking any brighter for those strug-
gling to feed themselves and their families in the
coming year.
The reality
Dan Dunn, executive director of All Faiths
Food Bank, understands the need. His organiza-
tion is a collection and distribution point for 200
food pantries and agencies throughout Sarasota
County and 45 in South County alone.
"We had a man call us from his garage phone
so that his kids wouldn't know," Dunn said. "The
man told us he had teenagers at home that he
needed to feed. He'd donated to All Faiths Food
Bank before and he wanted to know if we could
help him out."
Dunn said it's no longer just the poor who are
struggling to feed their families. Now the middle
and upper middle classes have joined them.
"They're paying mortgages and their credit


'L. cards are maxed out," he
said.
Still, though some
15,000 pounds of food is
needed every day, Dunn
doesn't lose faith.
"The community is just
an incredibly giving com-
munity," he said. "I've
STAYING AFLOAT lived here 22 years, and
it's the way the communi-
ty is."
Trinity Presbyterian
The Community Assistance ministry at Trinity
Presbyterian Church inVenice is headed by Karin
Barbito and her merry band of 56 volunteers. One
of those volunteers, Barbara Jahnke, said the
ministry is in her heart.
"Many years ago, my then husband left me
and I had a daughter and a baby on the way," she
said. "I know what it's like to be hungry. I fought
back. I worked three jobs and never had to go on
v~elfare."
, Jahnke said God has been very good to her and
this is her way of giving back. She has difficulty
understanding those who don't do the same.
"How can you not help someone in need?
Surely, sometime in your life you've been helped,"
she said. "We've probably lost between $200,000-
$500,000 in the stock market, but it doesn't keep
me from helping others.
"You're living in a nice house, why aren't you
giving?" she said.
On any given Tuesday or Thursday, the com-
munity assistance ministry at Trinity Presbyterian
Church may serve 50-plus people needing food.
Jahnke and her husband see that the pantry is
stocked.
Every Wednesday they get baked goods, dairy,
fruits and veggies and anything All Faiths Food
Bank has an abundance of.
"Only now there isn't an abundance of any-
thing," she said. "They are even short on dairy
and meat."

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


An ethics complaint has been
filed with the state ethics com-
mission against Vice Mayor Sue
Lang.
Lang confirmed on Thursday
the complaint was filed two
weeks before the Nov. 4 election
with the ,
Florida
Comi-
mission
on Eth-
ics.
Lang
said it
was filed
by Win-
stonWil- SUNSHINE LAW
more,
husband of Janis Fawn who sits
on the planning commission
with Lang. Fawn served as
Planning Commission Chair
John Osmulski's campaign trea-
surer in his failed attempt to win
a seat on city council.
Kit McKeon, who won the
seat, was criticized during the
election for his close ties with
Lang and her positions on air-
port growth and ties to the ongo-
ing Sunshine lawsuit.
The ethics complaint could
have become a campaign issue.
Lang pointed a finger at
Osmulski, saying she thinks he
"played a role" in leveling the
complaint, but didn't specify
what role. .
"For what reason he didn't
bring it up in the election" I don't
know, she said.
Osmulski denied knowledge
of the complaint. It was never
raised as a campaign issue.
'Flimsy logic'
"His claim is that I might
(have) a personal gain in the
value of my house if the airport
were closed," Lang said ofWil-
more's complaint. "I think that's
pretty flimsy logic. The economy
would have much more im-
pact."
Lang, who lives seven blocks
from the airport underneath the
path of runway 13 and has led a
campaign that continues today
to reduce airplane noise, said
she chose not to make public the


ethics com-
plaint.
She declin-
ed a Gondolier
Sun request to
view the com-
plaint. Under
state law the
complainant
and person Lang
who is the sub-
ject of the ethics complaint may
reveal its contents. The ethics
commission doesn't publicly
acknowledge complaints until
well into the investigation pro-
cess.
Allegations
Wilmore, a retired Royal
Canadian Mounted Policeman
and secret service officer, now a
U.S. resident, shrugged off
Lang's claim that it was timed to
influence the election.
"I deliberately didn't want to
interfere with the 'election,"
Wilmore said Friday. "It didn't."
He provided a copy of the
complaint, filed Oct. 14, which
alleges the following violations:
Sunshine Law:
"Councilwoman Lang, despite
her statements about complying
with Sunshine Laws, utilized her
personal e-mail address and the
personal e-mail addresses of
other City ofVenice officials in a
direct effort to deny the public
its right to have official ... busi-
ness conducted in the
Sunshine."
Voting conflict of interest:
"Lang violated Section 112.3143,
Florida Statutes, which prohibits
voting on official business that
"would inure.to his or her spe-
cial private gain or loss."
"Councilwoman Lang has a
personal and financial state in
the Airport Layout Plan being
considered. Lang opposed the
proposed (ALP) ... because she
felt it would negatively impact
the value of her personal resi-
dence. Despite her personal
interest on numerous occasions
she voted on issues related to the
Master Plan Update, and Airport
Layout Plan ... Her actions, he
states, "exposes the City to
unnecessary litigation, liability,

Copying a


form of flattery


BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

I often ask myself why
some states take conserva-
tion more seriously than
other states. Aren't we all in
this global warming strug-
gle and conservation of
natural resources effort
together?
Last summer California
enacted a state lawwhereby
residents can obtain low-
interest loans from cities
and counties for installing
solar panels, energy-effi-
cient air con-
ditioners,
high-effi-
ciency win-
dows and
other quali-
fying green-
hodse-gas
reducers.
The law also
has a provi-
sion that
allows

es and
residents _
to repay
these loans
over a number
of years through
their property taxes.
Assemblyman Lloyd


Levine, who sponsored the
legislation, states property
owners "will save more on
energy bills than they will
pay on the interest of their
loans."
This legislation appears
to be a logical, sensible
way to assist both busi-
nesses and homeowners
and hopefully will be con-
sidered by other states.
Then, perhaps one day
alternative forms of energy
will just be energy.
The planet it's worth
saving.

Holiday tree safety tips


FROM THE VENICE
FIRE DEPARTMENT

Here are a few tips for
choosing and taking care
of your Christmas tree so
that it does not become a
fire hazard:
When selecting an
artificial tree, make sure it
has a label indicating it is
fire resistant. This means it
will resist burning, and if it
does catch on fire, the
flames should be easily
extinguishable.
Never use electric
lights on a metal tree.
Faulty lights can charge
the tree with electricity
and electrocute someone
who touches it.


A live tree should have
green needles that are
hard to pull from branch-
es. Bend the branches and
tap the trunk on the
ground to make sure nee-
dles do not fall off. Touch
the end of the trunk it
should feel sticky with
resin.
When you get the tree
home, place it away from
traffic, doors and heat
sources, such as fireplaces
and heaters.
Water it daily. A dry
tree is a fire hazard. It is
best not to leave the tree
up for more than two
weeks. When the tree
becomes dry, discard it
promptly.

Hospital emergency
rooms treat more than
12,500 people annually for
falls, cuts and injuries relat-
ed to the installation ofhol-
idaylights and decorations,
according to the U.S.
Consumer Product Safety
Commission. To ensure a
safe holiday season, con-
sider the following tips:
Check your ladder
before you use it. Inspect it
for cracks, broken joints or
any other defects that
could have formed while it
was being stored. Always
make sure that safety


braces (if applicable) are in
place and locked.
Always have some-
one with you. Whether
they are securing the lad-
der, helping hoist decora-
tions or just watching, a
second pair of eyes from
the ground can drastical-
ly cut your chances of
being hurt.
Place your ladder on a
stable and flat surface.
Never place a ladder on
top of another object.
Be cautious of power
or feeder lines leading
from utility poles into
older homes.
Only use insulated sta-
ples to hold light strings in
place, not nails or tacks.

CITY NOTES


COMPILED BY
NEWS EDITOR GREG GILES

Postal service
could slow down
The Manasota Local 7136
AFL-CIO union sent a letter to
Mayor Ed Martin dated Nov. 24
suggesting 50 postal employ-
ees who handle local mail sent
to and from the Venice area
could be excessedd" hundreds
of miles away to save their jobs
under preliminary plans to
streamline service. Fourteen of
the employees currently reside
in the Venice area; 10 in the
city, three in Nokomis and one
in Englewood.
The union represents more
than 300 postal workers at the
Venice/ Sarasota/Bradenton
mail facility called the Mana-
sota Processing and Distribu-
tion Center located near the
Sarasota/Manatee County
border.
Jim DeMauro, representing
Local 7136, said the United
States Postal Service is making
many changes, some of which
could negatively impact mail
service in the Venice area.
"The southern end of our ser-
vice area Venice, Englewood,
North Port could be impacted
the most," said DeMauro.
"For example, under the pro-
posed study, a letter mailed
from Venice to Nokomis could
be trucked to Tampa for cancel-
lation and processing, only to
then be returned to Nokomis
for delivery, instead of being
processed locally."
"Not only does this increase
the distance their mail has to
travel, it increases the risk that
(zip codes starting with) 342 to


342 mail will be delayed, and is
accelerating the layoff of postal
positions in Sarasota and
Manatee counties."
The ramifications, he said, of
collecting mail earlier and deliv-
ering it later could impact busi-
nesses and residents who need
bills paid on time.
He requested a meeting with
the mayor to discuss the situa-
tion further. Mayor Ed Martin
put the issue on Tuesday's city
council agenda under council
reports.
Mooring field
notices go out
City notices went out Dec. 1
to property owners near the pro-
posed boat mooring field near
Higel Marine Park and the
Venice Yacht Club.
The notice requests letters of
"no objection" to the proposed
Higel Marine Park harbor moor-
ing field from all property own-
ers within 500 feet of the area
before Jan. 1, 2009, to comply
with a Florida Department of
Environmental Protection per-
mit requirement.
A transient mooring field that
could harbor five vessels is
planned for an area north of the
Venice Yacht Club, while the
long-term mooring station just
off Higel Marine Park would
anchor 12 boats.
Concerned residents who
were contacted by the city are
urged to call Val Raneyat 486-
2626 for additional information
and explanations.
ORC report gives
good grade on city
concurrency plan
One way city zoning and
planning staff measure the


success of their efforts in draft-
ing comprehensive plans and
amendments to those plans is
how many pages it takes for the
state to comment on them.
The city's draft comp plan
amendment implementing state-
required rules to ensure pay-
as-you-go for developments
that impact schools totaled a
mere two pages. That's a good
thing.
The Florida Department of
Community Affairs' ORC
(objections, recommendations
and comments) Report made
three recommendations:
Adopt North Port's objec-
tives and policies for the Capital
Improvements element- and
Intergovernmental Coordination
element to ensure compliance
with state law.
Regularly update the
Capital Improvements element
to set forth a financially feasi-
ble public school capital facili-
ties program. The ORC Report
recommended either revising
the amendment to include a
policy referencing, the school
district's five-year capital facili-
ties plan, or alternatively,
adopting the entire school dis-
trict facilities work plan into its
policy.
Do a better job of further-
ing the state comprehensive
plan regarding policies that
"provide educational pro-
grams" on concurrency and
identifying and implementing
"innovative but fiscally sound
and cost-effective techniques
for financing public facilities."
The city has 60 days in which
to adopt changes or object to the
state's recommendations to its
draft comp plan amendment on
concurrency.

Legacy Park evolves v


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

City council at a Thursday workshop
showed it was open to including a num-
ber of family amenities in a proposed
park an issue in some parks on the
island.
Mayor Ed Martin said the planned 10-
acre Legacy Park site next to the
Intracoastal Marine Boat Launch on the
east side of Venice Avenue Bridge was an
appropriate site for such activities.
He gained consensus among council
members to incorporate a small play-
ground in the park and a band shell for
small concerts.
Residents from La Villa Grande, whose
homes line the north side of Hatchett
Creek adjoining the northern portion of
site, testified they support the park but
aired concerns over noise and asked
council to maintain the mangroves that
would block their view of the park.
Council agreed to locate the band shell
as far as possible away from the resi-
dences and point the stage westward over
the Intracoastal Waterway to avoid dis-
turbing the neighborhood.
They also agreed not to tear down one
of the old cement plant garage buildings
for possible use by vendors.
Sarasota County Parks Director John
McCarthy convinced council to relocate
one of the proposed parking lots near the
Venice Train Depot instead of in the mid-
dle of the planned park.
An overflow parking lot at the north
end of Legacy Park would adjoin the
existing boat launch area, requiring vehi-
cles with trailers to cross over Legacy Trail
at one point. While members didn't like
the idea of bicyclists having to avoid trail-
ered boats, it was a better alternative than
requiring the vehicles to drive around the
park to access the overflow parking by
another route.


McCarthy said it might serve as a
"wake up call" for those bicyclists who
cross Legacy Trail at U.S. 41 Bypass a mile
north of the park.
A canoe and kayak launch is planned
at the northern overflow parking lot
where it meets Hatchett Creek.
Left hanging
Council didn't approve a recommen-
dation by the Parks and Recreation
Advisory Board to build a smaller version
of the county's "green" educational
Florida House on site.
Martin said he believed a more appro-
priate place for the project may be at the
water treatment plant or near the city Fire
Station No. 2 on Venice Avenue East, just
east of the park. Those are slated for relo-
cation sometime in the future.
The band shell planned for Legacy
Park may come at the expense of a per-
formance stage (a covered concrete slab
with electrical hookups) already ap-
proved at workshops earlier on the
planned beachside Tramonto Vista Park
on the island. A group of island residents
fought hard to have the performance
stage included.
Council Member Ernie Zavodnyik
asked council "... to consider eliminating
the stage we talked about, or tentatively
approved, for Tramonto Vista. That is a
pristine area and if we can eliminate it
there that would be a plus."
Mayor Martin agreed with Zavodnyik.
The rest of council didn't weigh in.
Thursday's workshop was held so
council could select a number of ameni-
ties to satisfy a grant for half the amount
of the $7.4 million purchase price for the
site. The Florida Conservation Trust must
approve any amenities or changes to park
plans. One stipulation requires any rev-
enues from concessionaire stands be
used for a park maintenance fund.

The ministry gets day-
old bread from Panera
Bread, and Yum Yum bak-
ery in Englewood donates
day-old baked goods.
Jahnke and her hus-
band also shop for the
pantry at Save-A-Lot in
Venice. They can purchase
the food tax free.
"I get money anywhere
I can," she said. "Some
comes from our church
and $150 comes from the
deacons and the rest is
from donations."
Jahnke has worked in
the ministry for seven
years, and she's been the
buyer for the pantry for the
past three years.
She also collects clean
clothing in good condi-
tion, household items,
sheets, towels, pillows and
small appliances like cof-
fee pots and blenders.
Jahnke handles the
Tuesday pantry shift and
BarbaraWinsome runs the
Thursday shift at the
church. It should be noted
that many of the volun-
teers are church members
and many are not.
Fishers of Men

Pastor Jim McCleland,
senior pastor of Fishers of
Men Bible Church, and a
group of church volun-
teers serve soup in the
church parking lot every
Saturday 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
The soup kitchen is
open to the public and it
serves 50 to 100 people
ranging from the homeless
to senior citizens.
McCleland said he is
given a ham bone and soup
mix from Honey Baked
Ham in South Sarasota
County.
"It's like a bean soup,"
he said. "We throw every-
thing in the pot and add
water. During the summer
we serve casseroles as
soup isn't real popular."

The South County Food

individuals who live in
Venice, Nokomis, Laurel

receive enough food to
feed their families for
three to four days," Debbie
Gippert said.
She reported averaging
more than 400 family units
a month with at least 50
new families registering
each month. The South
County Food Pantry served
16,348 individuals in the fis-
cal year ending Sept. 30.
"That's almost 4,000


more. than the previous
year," Gippert said. "In
September this year we
served 61 new families. In
November it was 76 new
families and we gave out
427 Thanksgiving baskets.
That's 116 more than last
year."
Gippert said the pantry is
blessed by the generosity of
many churches, mobile
home parks, schools, ser-


vice clubs, condominium
associations, businesses
and individuals who sup-
port the hungry in Venice.
Food donations are given
directly to the clients while
monetary donations are
used to buy supplemental
food products.
Still, despite the gen-
erosity, the need contin-
ues to be overwhelming
this year.


"We spend about
$6,200 a month purchas-
ing supplemental food,"
she said. "But for the first
time since the pantry's
opening in 1986, we have
applied for grant money.
We still rely heavily on
donations, but the supply
can barely keep up with
the demand."
Gippert said the South
County Food Pantry has


people coming in in tears
telling her they were the
ones who used to donate
to the pantry.
"The need is worse this
year than most people
know." she said.
"There are people in the
world so hungry, that God
cannot appear to them
except in the form of bread."

Hangar lien dispute on hold


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Last month's threat by
the Sarasota County
property appraiser's office
to put a lien on a city
of Venice-owned airport
hangar is on hold.
Outgoing Property


Appraiser Jim Todora
said last month the city
needed to pay back taxes
and penalties on the
hangar in question from
2001 through 2007, total-
ing more than $14,000.
Now the appraiser's
office says there might
have been a clerical over-


sight on the county's part
in not processing the nec-
essary paperwork identi-
fying the property as
owing taxes. It bolsters
the city's claim that it sent
the necessary paperwork
notifying the county of
the lease when it was first
entered into.


City Finance Director
Jeff Snyder produced a let-
ter sent to Todora on
March 10 asking the coun-
ty to review of all the city's
airport leases. He asked
the county to "determine
what, if any, ad valorem
taxes the Airport's lessees
should pay?"
"Our city council is
interested in determining
if any of these businesses
should be paying for per-
sonal property or any
other taxes for which you
are responsible," wrote
Snyder.
Snyder said Deputy
Property Appraiser Luis
Guinart told him he was
searching his files to
determine if this oversight
was a clerical error on the
county's part.
"There are allowances
in state statutes which
allow penalties and inter-
est to be waived for a cler-
ical error on the part of
the property appraiser's
office," said Guinart,
according to a Nov. 25


memo written by Snyder
to update city council on
the situation.
"Guinart requested the
city put on hold any
actions related to his origi-
nal letter dated Nov. 4,"
Snyder wrote. "I believe
the city has complied with
the Florida Statutes by
notifying the county of all
of our leases.
"The ad valorem tax lia-
bility is the responsibility of
the'lessee, A.C. Schmieler.
... it appears the penalties
and interest portion of the
liability will be waived."
Schmieler, who leases
the hangar from the city,
said weeks ago he's not
responsible for any back
taxes because it's the city
that owns the land and the
hangar. He's been in con-
tact with his attorney.
Schmieler said there is a
clause in his lease requir-
ing the city to notify him of
,any change in tax status
regarding the property,
which he said wasn't done.

Nancy Woodley directed
the finance department to
file list of all leases with the
property appraiser's office
annually, not just when
they're first entered into.
"This change should
ensure that this issue, or.
one very similar, will not
resurface in future years,'"
Snyder said.

Wells could cut future water costs


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

The Peace River/Man-
asota Regional Water Sup-
ply authority is consider-
ing tapping underground
water resources in addi-
tion to building reservoirs
on the Upper Myakka Riv-
er, Cow Pen Slough and
Shell Creek.
That could save the cus-
tomers of the four-county
authority as much as $100
million by reducing the
size of reservoirs and other
facilities needed to meet
future demands, accord-
ing to a report by engineer-
ing consultant Pete Putnam
of Post Buckley Schuh &
ernigan. Putnam present-
$d the Source Water Feas-
ibility Study to the authority
qt its meetingWednesday.
The options originally
under consideration were
a number of mega-sized
reservoirs to tap the three
Surface water sources.
Those projects would also
require pipelines and
other facilities for a total
eost estimated at $752 mil-
ion, the study indicates.
; However, as a 2005
development boom went
bust, projections for when
those projects will be
needed became a moving
target, said Mike Coates,
authority water resources
division director.
The authority histori-
dally has relied almost
entirely on the Peace River
to provide up to 37 million
gallons per day for Char-
lotte, DeSoto and Sarasota
counties.
SIn 2005, a Water Plan-
ning Alliance study pro-
jected that the authority
would need another 50

fines, and :other expense
for no other reason other
than to postpone a proper
ALP done in accordance
with FAA specifications."
Misuse of public posi-
tion: "Councilwoman Lang
repeatedly misused her
public position to interfere
with private businesses
located on airport proper-
ty, including voting to
direct the City attorney to
draft provisions that allow
the City to control subleas-
es at the Airport and reject-
ing business signs that had
been approved by City
staff. ... Evidence exists
that Lang utilized and
directed private citizens to
communicate her mes-
sage to the City Council
and to coordinate the
votes of Council Members.
There are e-mails author-
ed by certain residents and
members of the Venice
Neighborhoods Coalition,
but which reasonably I
believe were ghost written
by Councilwoman Lang.
Disclosing confiden-
tial information: "Council-
woman Lang inappropri-
ately discussed and dis-
tributed information that
was confidential pursuant
to Subsection 286.011(8),
Florida Statutes." The
complaint alleges Lang
was privy to confidential
information obtained in
Shade Meeting pertaining
to the pending litigation
involving Sharky's Rest-
aurant and the city and
disclosed the information
"to at least two residents
who are not officeholders
or city employees desig-
nated in the statute." Lang,
the complaint reads, dis-
closed the information in
an e-mail dated Dec. 9,
2007.
If the ethics commis-
sion rules Lang shouldn't
have voted on airport mat-
ters, Wilmore said, then it
follows that others who


live near Lang, shouldn't
have either. Mayor Ed
Martin and Council Mem-
ber John Moore reside
within blocks of Lang.

the authority only needs

OPINION


OUR VIEW


Remember, you are a public servant


Politics is no business for the ten-
der-hearted.
Campaigns can be tough. The
central thrust of a political challenge is a
critique of the incumbent's abilities, posi-
tions or performance. Often, this is done
vigorously, which is fine, up to a point.
Candidates need to make a case for
their own superior abilities and posi-
tions and also to point out an oppo-
nents' deficits. It's a simple proposition:
I'm better than he is, and this is why.
As we've often seen, however, an
opponent's position may be stretched,
sometimes a lot. Facts can be spun,
twisted, omitted. Negative campaigning
- highlighting an opponent's flaws, real
or exaggerated often devolves into
talking about nothing else.
Fair or not, candidates need to have
thick skin. We expect unflattering com-
ments to cascade off a candidate's back.


That's just part of the game sticks and
stones, etc.
So we forget sometimes, they're just
like the rest of us.
Evidence that they are can be seen in
the after-effects of recent property
appraiser's election, which reflects the
tension between being a politician and
being a human being.
In this case, longtime Property Ap-
praiser Jim Todora is giving his succes-
sor, Bill Furst, the big chill during the
transition period. Apparently, the in-
cumbent is still smarting from his loss
in the August Republican Party primary
and the tenor of the campaign.
We had criticized Furst early in that
contest for what we felt were distortions
ofTodora's record and for making cam-
paign promises we thought were un-
wise or undoable. For the most part,
though, the slurs came from his more-


ardent supporters, and compared to
what followed in the mud-filled cam-
paigns of the general election, they now
seem relatively mild.
Not to Todora.
When Furst sent a letter asking to meet
and discuss office operations, Todora
refused. He prevented his office staff from
meeting with their new boss and report-
edly sent Furst a reply that complained
about his campaign methods.
Todora told Furst he could have the
keys to his new office on Jan. 6, the date
of the official turnover. One property
appraiser at a time, etc. Legal? Sure,
Public spirited? No. Petty? Yes.
Todora has served the county well
over the past 12 years, but he's appar-
ently allowed hurt feelings to get in the
way of the public interest. It's under-
standable, but it's sad, and it does a dis-
service to the public Todora had hoped


to keep working for.
Compare the welcoming response to
Barack Obama by President Bush after
the November election, in which he was
the prime target from both sides. You
can argue the economic crisis necessi-
tated such response, that the national
stage requires a larger stature or that the
incumbent just didn't care any more,
but Bush's generous spirit is a model of
proper behavior.
Locally, Sarasota County Sheriff Bill
Balkwill's performance also was central
to the Republican primary campaign to
succeed him, but he has welcomed his
replacement. Sheriff-elect Tom Knight
accompanied Balkwill on a recent tour
of the county jail. He has been prepped
by the staff.
That's the way it should be. After 12
years, Todora shouldn't want his legacy
to be leaving office as a sore loser.


The promise of


growth to come


DEREK DUNN-RANKIN




Someone asked the
other day what it was like
to grow up in Florida dur-
ing the last half of the
depression. When our
family moved to Miami
Beach, it was 10 years after
the great 1926 bubble in
Florida real estate had col-
lapsed, leaving partially
completed subdivisions,
streets that had returned
to jungle and the skeletons
of office buildings that
would remain unfinished
for more than a decade.
Florida was in its de-
pression three years before
the rest of the country.
However, despite the exo-
dus that followed the real
estate collapse, the state's
population increased by
50 percent in the '20s.
Current financial un-
certainty is imitating that
of the months before Her-
bert Hoover vacated the
White House and Franklin
D. Roosevelt took office in
March 1933.
In the third year of the
Depression, the unem-
ployment in December
1932 was a much more
severe problem. It was as
high as 30 percent in cities.
Then as now, credit
markets were in disarray,
but bank failures had been
epidemic, compared to
the severe stress facing a
number of our major insti-
tutions today. Then, there
was no Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation.
Panicky consumers who
operated on cash, not
credit cards, would with=
draw deposits on rumors
that a bank was shaky,
making it a self-fulfilling
prophecy. The Hoover ad-
ministration and the Con-
gress were not willing to
consider the massive infu-
sions of government credit
we are pouring into private
financial institutions to-


day.
Back in 1936, we kids
did not know our parents
were in a financial struggle
for which life had not pre-
pared them. There was
usually a big roast on the
weekend that provided the
meat part of our diet all
week, until it became a
soup bone on Thursday,
with tuna salad on Friday.
During the '30s, if my
brothers and I were not
swimming, fishing, or
playing cowboys and In-
dians or sandlot football,
we were building tree huts
or forts. There was always
a small building project
within walking distance
where scrap lumber and
bent nails could be sal-
vaged for our purposes.
We did not stop to think
that the construction was
a sign that Florida's econo-
my was recovering. In the
decade, the state's popula-
tion grew by 29 percent,
reaching close to 2 million
by the end of the 1930s,
with people mostly con-
centrated along the At-
lantic beach communities
from Jacksonville to Mi-
ami.
My parents were not the
only ones to give up cold
winters and a stale De-
pression economy for new
opportunities in Florida.
The first years were not
easy. The new little special-
delivery trucking business
our dad, Frederick Dunn-
Rankin, and his two broth-
ers-in-law launched made
it through two winter sea-
sons before dying the fol-
lowing summer.
Frederick apprenticed
himself to one of the two
Miami CPAs. After passing
the exams to be a certified
public accountant, he
opened his own Miami of-
fice and went on to estab-
lish five offices across the
state. It could not have
happened without Flor-
ida's phenomenal growth.
With today's population
around 19 million, a per-
cent or 2 of growth can add
many thousands of new
homeowners to our state.
That growth promises
prosperity for those who
can make it through a'
tough patch.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Football team deserved better ending


Editor:
Shame on Venice.
As fans of the VHS Indians football program we
(myself included) should be disgusted with ourselves.
After an 11-0 season full of hardships, adversities and
several months of excitement, not to mention the dis-
traction from our economic worries these exceptional
boys delivered, we as their fans abandoned them at their
most difficult moment.
I am appalled that we allowed our boys to walk off the
field and exit Powell-Davis Stadium (some for the last
time) with lowered heads and broken hearts. How cal-
lous of us.
For the coaches to walk off the field and exit the stadi-
um before the boys is reprehensible. After they worked
so hard for you, coaches Peacock, Shannon and Butler,
knowing this was a moment they would reflect on for
years to come, you treated them with disgrace and dis-
honor. I would have expected the people entrusted with
our boys' mental, physical and emotional health to walk
them to the sideline and demand they receive the praise
and applause so they so richly deserved from the people
they raised their helmets to after every game this year.
I can only request that we attempt redemption in
their eyes by remembering to thank a player when next
we see him. It's the least we could do for this wonderful
group of teenagers. For the seniors, I am so sorry an
important stage in their lives ended and we didn't even
acknowledge what it took to get there.
Many thanks to you, Venice High School Indians, for a
great season.

You made reference to
crimes against humanity.
Do you also want to hold
accountable the Supreme
Court justices who made
abortion legal? Since that
decision, more than 46
million innocent children
have died. Do you want to
hold them, as well as the
doctors, hospitals and
would-be mothers re-
sponsible, and put them
on trial for crimes against
humanity?
How about the automo-
bile executives whose com-
panies produce cars that kill
more than 35,000 people a
year, or the executives of
tobacco and alcohol com-
panies whose products kill
thousands per year as well?
If you want to impeach

EDITOR'S NOTE: The offi-
cial death toll from Sept. 11
is 2,975.
Let's sell some cars
Editor:
I can't help but think
that the big three auto
makers are asking for $25


billion dollars to save their
industry only because
Congress seems to be will-
ing to give away taxpayers
dollars with little thought
as to what the money will
be used for.
If Congress wants to
help save the auto indus-
try, then I suggest giving
consumers a voucher to
buy a new American car.
This is how I think it
should work. First, with
$25 billion you could give
out 1 million $25,000
vouchers to buy a new
American car and orily
an American car from
one of the big three.
Second, give the vouchers
out by way of a lottery.
Third, only give vouchers
to people making less than
$250,000 per year, one per
family and none to rela-
tives of an elected official
(not that I think that politi-
cians are crooked). Fourth,
make the voucher good for
a couple of years.
This plan. would give
the auto industry the
money it is asking for and
also give the workers job
secfirity. The dealerships
would make money, the
factories would need to
make a million cars and
the big three would still get
the money.

Santa is watching grown-ups, too


BY CHRISTINA
MCCAULEY
GUEST COLUMNIST

I have lived in Venice
since I was a kid. One of
the big highlights of every
year is our wonderful
Christmas Parade. I was
particularly excited about
it this year because I have
a 9-month-old and it's his
first one.
I remember sitting at
the parade last year, big
and pregnant, thinking
about bringing my little
boy to the parade this year.
Well, that occasion arriv-
ed.
Each year you expect a
bit of a hassle to get to the
parade and get yourself
situated. The parade
draws in locals as well as
visitors from other coun-
ties, so it's a big crowd.
My mother owns a shop
downtown and each year
she goes out a couple days
ahead of time and puts out
a small blanket and chairs
for maybe four or five of us
to sit and watch the pa-
rade. This year was no
exception.
Shortly before the
parade started, my hus-
band, baby and I found
our blanket in the midst of


the crowd and, as usual,
people had put their chairs
on it. We are used to it, so it
was no big deal. When we
tried to sit and couldn't fit,
however, my husband
moved one chair off our
blanket.
Moments later an el-
derly, very unhappy wom-
an showed up. Apparently
she was the owner of the
chair we moved. Instead
of asking us politely to
move or just sitting down
in the chair we had only
moved a couple of inches,
she went nuts. She yelled
at my husband to move,
then picked up her chair
and started hitting him
with it to get him to move,
while he had our 9-
month-old in his arms
After a short screaming
match between me and
this miserable woman, I
ended our conversation
with "Merry (profanity)
Christmas," picked up our
things and left. The end
result was me in tears, my
husband furious, my
mother (who had missed
the whole thing) very con-
fused and my son missing
his very firstVenice Christ-
mas Parade.
I'm sad to say that this
will likely be our -last


Venice Christmas Parade.
This isn't the first time
something like this has
happened to me inVenice.
Only two years ago a
woman with a walker liter-
ally shoved me out of her
way out front of a restau-
rant without so much as
an "excuse me."
I urge Venice residents,
young and old, to please
have more consideration
for other people this holi-


day season. Things are bad
in this country right now.
People are losing their
jobs, their homes every-
thing. In a time where peo-
ple should go out of their
way to be nice to others,
something as small as
moving a lawn chair
brings out the worst in
people.
I hope everyone who
stayed for the parade
enjoyed it very much.

Fire training uses old buildings


STAFF REPORT


The City of Venice Fire Department
will hold live fire training, in conjunction
with Nokomis Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment, Dec. 10-14 using several vacant
houses on Curry Lane and R&F Ranch
Road. The buildings are owned by Orion
Bank in Naples, which donated them for
the training. The training will take place
in the afternoon each day and on two
evenings.
Live fire training provides firefighters
with a learning experience that develops
skills related to ventilation, fire streams,


pump operations, multi-jurisdictional
coordination and fire behavior. Before
the live burns begin, firefighters will
refresh their survival skills, including dis-
orientation, or lost, injured firefighter
practices, resident search and rescue, and
hose layout practices. One of the bums
will be conducted at night.
All bums are conducted in accordance
with strict policies established by the
National Fire Protection Association and
fire department-recommended operat-
ing guidelines and policies. For informa-
tion, contact Venice Fire Department
Capt. Joe Silva at 480-3030.

Steve Darvalics, pictured above, spent every day this week working to get his truck ready
for the Charity Truckers 200 in Orlando. He and teammate Charlie Montgomery have a
chance to showcase the talent to scouts that could be on hand for the race.


Venice drivers Steve Darvalics
and Charlie Montgomery are
prepared to run in the biggest
race of their young careers.

BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon
are two of the most recognized names
in stock car racing. Jimmie Johnson just
won his third straight NASCAR Sprint
Cup title. Those three drivers are mem-
bers of Hendrick Motorsports.
Steve Darvalics and Charlie Mont-
gomery are not. At least,.not yet.
Darvalics and Montgomery are the
drivers for a locally owned and inde-
pendent racing team run by brothers
Roger and Chris Bryson. They call
Desoto Super Speedway home and
they're winners of 86 percent of the Pro
Trucks Series races that they enter there.
The Venice residents are big fish in a
very small pond.
They'll have an opportunity to show-
case their abilities to some very big fish
from a much deeper pond Saturday in
the Charity Truckers 200 at Orlando
Speedworld.
Darvalics, a 22-year-old graduate of
Venice High School, said there is a


chance that scouts from organizations
such as Hendrick will be on hand for the
200-lap Pro Trucks race. If so, they will
be looking for talent to fill their driver
development programs.
"It's a pretty big race," he said. "We've
got a really good shot at winning it. That
would be big for us."
Montgomery is the 2008 points
champion in the Desoto Super
Speedway Pro Trucks Series. Darvalics is
coming off a 50-lap feature win last
weekend. But neither one has compet-
ed in a race this big ($2,000 to win, $250
to start) or this long (200 laps).
They've had just one week to get their
trucks ready for a race that is twice as
long as anything they've ever run.
Darvalics leaves his job as a
welder/fabricator each afternoon and
heads straight for the team's garage at
the corner of Warfield Avenue and
Spur Street. He spent the previous
week checking and double-checking
every nut and bolt.. If anythirig gobs
wronhg-on Saturday, it won't be for'a
lack of preparation.
"Ninety percent of racing is won
before you get to the racetrack.
Preparation is everything," he said. "It's
the same with any athlete. No one just
goes out and plays football, you've got

Indians bore Bruins out of


building for third district win


BYTRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


It wasn't their prettiest
win. It certainly wasn't
their most exciting win.
But it was their third
District 5A-12 win.
The Venice High
School girls basketball
team defeated Bayshore
High School 37-33
Thursday night in spite
of a 16-minute span in
the middle of the game
that produced just 12
points, not to mention
an abysmal 5-for-22
night at the free-throw
line.
"I just think that men-
tally we weren't focused
tonight," Venice head
coach Bruce Reichenbach
said. "We've got to come
ready to play every game.
It definitely wasn't our
best effort."
Venice (4-2, 3-0 in 5A-
12) shot out to an early 6-
5 lead on 3-of-3 shooting
by freshman Juliana
Cavallaro. The Lady
Indians led 12-8 with
about three seconds in
the first quarter, but
Bayshore's Dee Miller hit
a 30-foot jumper at the
buzzer to cut the lead to
one.
The Lady Bruins (3-4,
1-2), couldn't get any-
thing going in the sec-
ond quarter as Venice
outscored them 5-0 to
take a 17-11 halftime
lead.
"We didn't score a lot of
points because we didn't

pressing," Reichenbach
said. "They have two pret-
ty good guards and we
didn't feel that we could
press them."
In their first meeting
this season, Nov. 29 in
the Thanksgiving Holiday
Classic at Sarasota
Christian School, Bay-
shore burned the Indians
on the press. The Indians
backed off of it this time
around and had a more
favorable result.
The Bruins mounted a
comeback in the third
quarter, highlighted by
back-to-back three-point-
ers by Miller and Alvarez.
Bayshore led 26-24 after
three.
Venice recaptured the
lead on a three-point
play by Cavallaro, who
made her first of only
two-of-seven free throws
in the game. Lynsey
Butler, a junior transfer
from Indiana, then hit a
three-pointer that put


the game away.
"We tell her she needs
to shoot more, and she
can shoot," Reichenbach
said of the guard who was
one-for-two on field
goals. "She's really an
unselfish player. She
would rather find some-
one open and get them
the ball than shoot."
Cavallaro led Venice
with 19 points on 8-of-13
shooting. Vasilevskaya
finished with six points
and a team-high six
rebounds. Miller led
Bayshore with 12 points
and Liz Garcia finished
with nine rebounds.
Venice's Saturday
game with Port Charlotte
High School has been
postponed, so the
Indians next showdown
is at Manatee High
School Monday at 7:30

Indians lose



two matches



in district play


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High
School boys soccer team
sorely missed their lead-
ing scorer in the first two
matches since sopho-
more midfielder Joey
Carlin broke his collar-
bone.
The Indians fell 4-2 to
Bayshore High School
Wednesday night at
Powell-Davis Stadium,
then lost 3-0 Thursday
at Lakewood Ranch
High School. With Carlin
absent from the center
mid, Venice head coach
Seth Jones had to use a
District 5A-12 match to
experiment with differ-
ent lineup.
"You don't want to try
out lineups on a district
game, but missing Joey
Carlin (Wednesday), it
was me shuffling lineups
over the last couple of
days to see who was
going to fit best in the
center," he said.
He might have found a
combination that works
against Bayshore, as he
moved senior sweeper
Javier Aguadelo to the
center mid position to
start the second half after
the Indians (3-3, 0-2 in
5A-12) found themselves
trailing 2-1 at intermis-
Ssio'. Aguadelo scored
Venice' only two goals,
though the first was from
the sweeper position.
"(Moving Aguadelo)
helped us put the pres-
sure on," Jones said.
Venice struck first in
the 13th minute on a 40-
yard direct kick by
Aguadelo that somehow
sailed untouched through
a mass of bodies and into
the net. Their lead was
short-lived.
Bayshore came right
back in the 15th minute
on an unassisted goal by
Adolfo Villasecas. In the
27th minute, it was
Villasecas, again unas-
sisted, that put the Bruins
up 2-1.
Aguadelo struck again
when he came up with a
steal near midfield. He
dribbled all the way until
he had a one-on-one with
the keeper, then chipped
the ball right over his
head and into the net for
the tie in the 47th minute.
"We had them on the
ropes there at the start of
the second half," Jones
said. "But we just couldn't
put something more
together."
The Bruins later got a
one-on-one of their own,
but the ensuing collision
resulted in a yellow card
onVenice goalkeeper John
Morse. With Aguadelo
now in goal, Bayshore's
Kevin Lucas put the
Bruins up 3-2 on the penal-

Bayshore's Eduardo Arroyo
added one more goalwhen
he was left unmarked in
the 68th minute.

they face Charlotte High
School in Punta Gorda.

The Lady Indians
invoked the mercy rule
for the third time in just
eight matches so far this
season. Venice downed
Southeast High School 8-
0 Wednesday despite
struggling offensively in
the first half.
With sophomore for-
ward Dana LaRocque out
sick, Venice's front three
was not as productive
early on. Junior Tina Trujic
posted her 13th goal of the
season in the 14th minute
off. an assist .by:senior
Andria Thomas. Thomas
added a goal of her own in
the 21st minute off an
assist by junior Colleen
Murphy to put Venice up
2-0 at halftime.
"We were sloppy in the
first half," Venice head
coach Sheldon Chamber-
lain said. "So I moved
people around."
The coach moved
sophomore midfielder
Tori Bolyard to left for-
ward and moved Myra
Jenkins to the middle and
Colleen Murphy to the
right to start the second
half. The result was six
goals in a 28-minute span.
"They seemed to be
better together," Cham-
berlain said.
Trujic, playing from the
midfield, recorded her
14th goal, a team high this
season, on a rebound off
the crossbar in the 49th
minute. Thomas added
another goal in the 55th
on a cross by senior Ariel
Young. Bolyard put the
match completely out of
reach with two unassisted
goals in the 57th and 50th
minute. Senior defender
Ashley Kaiser got her
long-awaited first.goal of
the season and senior
Emily Cremisio ended the
match in the 77th minute

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.

Interfaith

event

draws

religions

together

BY AUDREY
BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

Kids Creating Com-
munity attracted about
125 people from several
religions for a potluck din-
ner Nov. 23.
The dinner at United
Church of Christ was the
final event of a several-
week series that served as
a way to break down barri-
ers between different reli-
gions and "start building
relationships," said Rabbi
Ann White. As an example
of barrier-breaking, she
told of how a Christian kid
helped a Jewish friend he
met at a KCC event light
the menorah candles for
Hanukkah.
Marcy Greenspan, a
volunteer with the Jewish
Center, chaired KCC this
year. It was designed to
help participants learn the
way various faiths treat the
environment. Groups rep-
resented Baha'i, Jewish,
Christian aAd Orthodox
religions.
This was the second
year such an event took
place in Venice. United
Church of Christ came up
with the idea to pull the
cross-section of faiths
together last year when
Venice Interfaith Com-
munity Association spon-
sored a children's-only
event that focused on un-
derstanding other faiths'
beliefs and celebrations.
This year's event ex-
panded teachings to
adults.
"There are similarities
among all the religions.
when it comes to the way
we protect and treat the
environment," Greenspan
said.
A $2,500 grant from the
Sarasota-Manatee Jewish
Federation helped pay for
speakers and all materials
for crafts done with chil-
dren, as well as food pro-
vided during the series
and the potluck. Some
presenters asked for dona-
tions to their group rather
than payment.
Speakers included rep-
resentatives from Mote
Marine, the Quaker faith,
the Audubon Society, Sel-
by Gardens and rangers
from Oscar Scherer and
Myakka State parks.
Following the potluck,
White gave the attendees
some ideas on protecting
the environment from the
book "God's To Do List," by
Dr. Ron Wolfson: "Do not
let the water run when
brushing your teeth," and
"don't use plastic water
bottles ... think about the
amount of oil it takes to
make plastic bottles."

rip to Africa reveals much


This is part two ofa two-part story. The first part
appeared on this page on Iov. 26. ". t


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER -

* For two weeks in July, I went on a mission trip with ""*
the Rev. Tom Derrough, of Grace United Methodist Church
n Venice, and Dr. Will Cogburn, aVenice physician. .
When he began his seminar for local ministers, Derrough
-speaking through an interpreter told his audience
we would learn more from them than they would from us.
It did not take long. -'At
Ugandans praise God with an enthusiasm not seen in
,many American churches. With their singing, dancing and
chanting, this outpouring earned even more style points than
a different group of Ugandan pastors we witnessed during A
our trip last year. *
Of the earlier group, one American noted we were expe-
riencing a joyous display few white people had ever seen.
We videotaped last year's praise session. This year we
clapped and counted our blessings for being there.
Almost immediately after the seminar ended,
Derrough and Pastor Steven Twase, our host, became ill.
Derrough contracted a stomach ailment and Twase was
felled by an allergic reaction to candy provided by his
American guests. Cogburn was at the ready and doc-
tored both men back to seafaring health.
After two days we prepared to leave the island at 8 '
a.m. on departure day. The boat actually shoved off at
10. Many Ugandaris, especially these fishermen, do not
own watches and do not watch clocks.
We'd been told our return boat would have fewer pas-
sengers than the boat that took us to the island.
Instead, it was a larger canoe with 27 people aboard.-
With calmer seas, our journey back was shorter
and safer but I did notice one pastor bailing out the' ".
center of the canoe. When I saw the captain use a
metal pole to shove a plastic bag into a crack in the
floor, I could have worried that we would take on tar
water below my feet, but a health worker named Blessing soothed me as she sang a
hymn. len
We exited the boat the same way we entered it, on the backs of strong, young men
who carried us ashore. The shirts they wore had numbers affixed so we would know
whom to tip after we retrieved our luggage.
Those of us who were unaware of the tip-
ping custom were quickly ..

eight by our carriers. I gave mine 500 Ugandan shillings, roughly 33 cents.
We drove back to Kampala to exchange money at a downtown hotel and its opu-
ice reminded me of the expensive vehicles we saw at a grocery store on our first
/ day there. Ugandans have a per-capita income of about $300, which is made
Shard to believe judging by the Land Rovers and BMWs in that lot. I'm told gov-
. ernment workers likely own them.
We spent one night at the home of Bernadette Kahembwe, our Ugandan
sponsor, whose name is on all of our travel documents and who will be respon-
sible if we run afoul of the law. I grabbed a copy of "The Silence of the Lambs"
and read 50 pages after my first shower in four days.
There was no hot water.
0O*
Before sunrise, the roving blackouts for which Kampala is known made it diffi-
ult for us to pack for a routine one-hour flight aboard a single-engine plane north
o Gulu, as we began our quest to find a place to build a health clinic.
I asked the pilot how long he had been doing this job and Laurie, a Briton, said it
'as his first day.
Gulu is where Joseph Kony once trained the Lord's Resistance Army young
gandan boys to fight and kill. Now Kony is somewhere in nearby Congo, the
ys are being deprogrammed and we are visitingWatoto, a Pentecostal church and
phanage near where the fighting occurred.
We also visited a Gulu hospital, site of a medical school whose first class of 60 stu-
nts will graduate in May.

UGANDA from Page 1B


I was reminded of
Cogburn's twin sons,
Mark and Brian, who
graduated from Venice
High School and the
University of Florida and
now are enrolled in
Florida State University's
medical school; and his
daughter, Megan, who
attends Wheaton College


in Illinois and may go to
medical school as well.
Mark and Brian want
to bring a group of their
classmates to Uganda
next summer, and
Cogburn is already for-
mulating plans.
The Gulu hospital has
many patients but little
staff and inadequate


equipment. There is no
X-ray machine, but two
people are forming pros-
thetic limbs, a reminder
of the recent wars in and
near this district, which
is near war-torn Sudan.
Olivia, a nurse from


Birmingham, Ala., who
was born in Uganda,
joined us on the flight to
Gulu. We spent time
there talking to Joseph, a
Pentecostal pastor, and
Christine, a Watoto pro-
ject manager.


Christine, educated in
Canada, has boundless
energy and loves to tell
people she was born
years ago in the Gulu
hospital. Despite the
hospital's poor condi-
tion, she is proud of her


homeland and prays we
will build a health clinic
in Gulu.
"Your prayers have to
be objective," she said.
"Mine can be selfish."

Venice High School chorus

raising money to perform

at Carnegie Hall in May


FROM VENICE HIGH SCHOOL


The Venice High School chorus, under
the direction of Stephen Johns, has been
invited to join other high school and col-
lege vocal students in performing at
Carnegie Hall.
Thirty students and chaperones will
travel to NewYork City in May to perform
in a concert featuring the music of Dr.
David Brunner, under the direction of the
composer.
Brunner is the director of choral activ-
ities at University of Central Florida, and
his compositions have received world-


wide recognition. The concert will take
place on Saturday, May 23.
The cost per participant is $1,500.
Students are working hard in our commu-
nity, performing and organizing fundrais-
ing activities to reduce the cost of this
opportunity.
Students thank the community for the
thoughtful donations they have received.
To make a donation to help the stu-
dents, checks made payable to VHS
Choral Boosters Inc., designated to the
Carnegie Hall Fund, can be mailed to
Venice High School, 1 Indian Ave., Venice,
FL 34385, in care of Stephen Johns.


HOROSCOPES FOR DEC. 6-12, 2008


ARIES (March 21-April
19). Self-acceptance isn't a
problem for you now and
in fact you could stand to
be slightly tougher on
yourself in some cases.
You truly are capable of
greatness. Ban mediocrity
from your life in every
area.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20). Shake and rattle your
network. Ask for what you
need. It's all whom you
know. A friend could set
you up sweetly with the
right connection to get
goods and services at a
fraction of what you were
planning to pay.
GEMINI (May 21-June
21). People are more inter-
ested in what you bring
to the party than you
thought they would be.
Your success secret just
may be that you see any
gathering of minds as an
opportunity to celebrate.
CANCER (June 22-July
22). Though you're trying
to blend in, as all power
players do once in a while,
you could still achieve
something that amazes
your cohorts. It's .fne for
you to enjoy the extra
attention and you should-
n't feel so bashful about it!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).

feel special at one time
might now be taking you
for granted. The feelings
you have about this will
spur you to do your great-
est work- creatively, intel-
lectually and practically.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22). You are thoughtful.
You think about the origin
of things. You consider
where the products you
buy have come from and
you also think about the
roots of your feelings. You
know the intention of your
conversations with loved
ones.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). Pop quizzes aren't
just for school children.
Your friends and family
will keep you on your
toes. They want to know
that you remember their
requests. They need to
believe that you don't
tune out when they talk.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
21). You'll get plenty of
attention from someone
you love, and you don't
even have to work that
hard for it. In fact, it seems
like the less invested you
are in this relationship, the


better the other person
treats you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21).You may think
you need to have a heavy,
meaningful talk with that
person who has caused
you so much confusion.
However, it all gets delight-
fully cleared up with a
speedy exchange and a
few laughs.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). You're not satis-
fied by superficial things.
However, you wisely take
material signs as an indi-
cation ofwhat's going on at


a deeper level. This week,
with your calm power you
tame a wild one.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18). There are many
interesting leads to check
out. You put out your
feelers and strike gold
every time. Though there
is much that remains to
be seen, it's safe to say
that this really is your

across hundreds of miles of the country's
most unforgiving land, only to still face the

Four Christmases (PG-13) C+
When upscale, happily unmarried San
Francisco couple Kate and Brad find them-
selves socked in by fog on Christmas morn-
ing, their exotic vacation 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 together uncertain.

Happy Go Lucky (R) B+
In a shift away from his usual exploration
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 incredi-
bly engaging.

Nobel Son (R) NEW
Barkley Michaelson is in a deep life rut
He's struggling to finish his Ph.D. thesis
when his father, the learned Eli Michaelson,
wins the Nobel Prize for Chemistry. Barkley
and his mother, Sarah, a renowned forensic
psychiatrist, now have the ill-fortune of living
with a man-eating monster whose philander-
ing ways have gotten less and less discrete.
As if Barkley's world is not bad enough, on
the eve of his father receiving the Nobel,
Barkley is kidnapped and the requested ran-
som is the $2 million in Nobel prize money.
Needless to say, Eli refuses to pay it and so
starts a venomous tale of familial dysfunc-
tion, lust, betrayal and ultimately revenge.

Seymour Hoffman) is mounting a new play.
His life catering to suburban 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 celebra-
tion of the mundane, instructing each to live
out their constructed lives in a growing mock-
up 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 reality.

When I was a kid,
American cars were IT:
the biggest, the fanciest,
the coolest. Sure, there
were a few foreign makes
with some class, but the
most popular one was the
Volkswagen, hardly a
threat to American domi-
nance.
And, thanks to the
United Auto Workers, mak-
ing cars provided a decent
living. The auto magnates
were as hardened a bunch
of capitalists as you'll ever
find, but the union eventu-
ally won concessions that
improved pay, shortened
the work week and made
the plants safer.
My grandfather raised
four children (and a
grandson) on what he
made working at Chrysler
for 35 years and never
owned another kind of
car until he died. He was
intensely loyal to both the
company that put food
on the table and the
union that made sure it
did.
And the union contin-


FINE WHINES

Driving off a cliff


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


Fast forward to today:
The Big Three have essen-
tially ceded the lead in
making economical, envi-
ronmentally friendly, well-
designed cars to foreign-
based companies and
have had to go hat in hand
to Congress for funds to
have a chance at survival.
On the one hand, I
think it's a shame that an
industry that defines
America as well as any,
with a history of pathfind-
ing entrepreneurs, is tee-
tering on the edge of
oblivion. If it falls into the
abyss, thousands upon
thousands of people will


suffer and the economy in
general will take another
huge hit.
On the other hand, at
least the three brainiacs
running Chrysler, Ford
and GM would be out of a
job. It's hard to drum up
much Sympathy for some-
one who complains about
being painted into a cor-
ner when he's standing
there with a paintbrush in
his hand.
I wonder what my
grandfather would say
about that.

ued to work for him after
he retired in 1965, getting
cost-of-living increases
in his pension with every
new contract. If it could-
n't get him more money,
it extracted benefits he
didn't need (such as pre-
paid legal services, some-
thing as useful to him
as a giraffe) but that
increased Chrysler's labor
costs. Obligations to
retirees remain a huge
piece of the manufactur-
ers' debt.
When OPEC raised its
ugly head in the '70s and
gas prices went sky high
(we thought then), foreign
manufacturers (which
were truly foreign then,
without American plants)
were already making eco-
nomical cars that started
gaining, in popularity.
Detroit responded slowly
and grudgingly, fighting
mileage standards, ignor-
ing engineering improve-
ments and tolerating
sloppy workmanship
while bemoaning exces-
sive labors costs it
blamed on the union,
which Toyota, et. al., kept
at bay.

FAITH, VALUES AND LESSONS
SUBMITTED BY BENNETT GROSS AND RABBI SHOLOM SCHMERLING
MEMBER OF THE JEWISH CENTER OF VENICE RABBI OF THE CHABAD OF VENICE


EDITOR'S NOTE: The
following are responses to last
week's terrorist attack in
Mumbai, India.

BY BENNETT GROSS
"The striking of a match,
the turning of a switch. And
there is light. Light for the
Chanukah menorah, light
for the Christmas tree-
each in its own way a sym-
bol of the two miracles
remembered and celebrat-
ed this month. Chanukah
commemorates the miracle
of a small flask of oil that
burned far longer than
expected giving light to the
ceremony consecrating the
Holy Temple. It had been
desecrated by the occupy-
ing Syrians and after a
momentous struggle liber-
ated by a small group of
brave Israelites.
There is the belief that
we are blessed (barukh in
Hebrew) because of the
righteous deeds of our
patriarchs and matriarchs.
Their goodness was such
that God blessed us with
an irrevocable blessing,
even in the darkest of
times. Among those sin-
gled out in the horrific
attack by murderous ter-
rorists in Mumbai were a
young rabbi and his wife in
a Jewish Community
Center. Along* with four
other visitors to the Center
they were killed because of
their religion. But due to
the heroic actions of their
two-year old son's Indian
nanny, the boy was saved.
'A blessing," said a rabbi
who knew the couple. A
blessing hard to compre-
hend other than the
miraculous way the child


was saved. But then you
have to know and under-
stand the positive beliefs
of the Chabad denomina-
tion of Judaism, which the
slain rabbi and his wife
were an integral part.
Founded over 250 years
ago in Russia from the
Hasidic movement that
believed in bringing joy to
prayer, Chabad in recent
years has pioneered
Jewish outreach. Its emis-
saries have circled the
globe to open Chabad
Houses where Jewish peo-
ple of all persuasions could
find a warm welcome, a
home away from home
where they could celebrate
the Jewish holidays, enjoy
a Shabbat dinner and
become if they chose, clos-
er to their faith. "To think
about those who were so
selfless, who had no other
life than spreading love and
goodness," a spokesman
for the Chabad movement
in NewYork said of the cou-
ple. "To have them cut
down in this kind of way is
unfathomable."
Yet the New York Times
reported that within hours
after the news broke, young
Chabad couples from
around the world were
stepping forward, offering
to move to Mumbai and
continue the movement's
work. Making the world a
better place to live for all is
the ultimate purpose of
these noble emissaries who
echo the religious tradi-
tions of the Torah and fol-
low a way of life that is rich
and rewarding. The belief
that all people reflect God's
divine image and as such
are worthy of respect and


dignity is a blessing that
God bestowed on all who
follow His path of love
and justice, Rabbi Bradley
Artson points out in his
book, "The Bedside Torah."
"Ours is the privilege of car-
rying that message and reit-
erating it even when others
may have forgotten it," he
writes. Or I might add, have
in their misguided beliefs
forsaken all connection to
such ideals.
As we light our meno-
rahs and Christmas trees let
us be a blessing to others by
caring for the sick, feeding
the hungry, providing shel-
ter for the homeless and
being the guardians of our
earth. If not, why not? It is a
message even more vital
today than when it was first
promulgated thousands of
years ago. Shalom. And
may the coming year be
one that bestows the ulti-
mate blessing of all -
peace on earth."

BY RABBI SHOLOM
SCHLERMING
"I join my 3,500 col-
leagues and Jewish people
the world over, in sorrow
and sadness by the grave
news that has just emerged
from Mumbai:
Rabbi Gavriel and Mrs.
Rivkah Holtzberg and at
least three of their guests,
who are still unnamed,
have been murdered. They
leave behind a son Moshe
who turns 2 tomorrow. We
extend our sympathy to
their families as well as to
the families of all those who
have died in this vicious
attack. We continue to pray
for a speedy and complete
recovery for all those who


were injured.
Rabbi Holtzberg and his
wife Rivkah directed Chabad
activities in Mumbai, India.
As a couple, they dedicated
themselves to fulfill their
life's dream to serve as a
Shluchim emissaries of
the Lubavitcher Rebbe.
What motivates a young
ultra-orthodox Jew to
move with his young wife
from a religious enclave in
Brooklyn, N.Y, to Mumbai,
India? Clearly it wasn't a
lucrative contract. It was
done with one aim in
mind: to help his fellow
Jews. There is little materi-
al reward for a religious
Jews to move to a develop-
ing country where they
may end up in harm's way.
Despite the dangers, for
Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg
and his wife Rivkah, living
in Mumbai was worth it
simply because it provided
them a unique opportunity
to serve the needs of others.
The selflessness inherent in
the work the Holzberg's
were doing and in the way
they lived their lives is stag-
gering.
Today, the wound is too
raw for me to share any
words of consolation or
explanation.
I do know what the
Rebbe would say. Take
action against this sense-
less heinous act of terror-
ism. Whatever happens,
we resolve today and com-
mit to strengthening our
concern and compassion
for each other by increas-
ing our good deeds, our
prayer and Torah study.
We will double our effort
to increase our activities
with zeal and devotion."

ASK YOUR
AUDIOLOGIST


Dr. Noel Crosby, Au.D.
Q: Dr. Crosby, You discussed the
LACE program in your last arti-
cle, could you tell us more about
this?
A: Even people with normal hearing
can be poor listeners. Good listening
skills are one of the essential com-
ponents in effective communication.
Other components of the program
include rapid thought processing,
auditory memory, use of language
skills and interactive strategies.
Additionally, the confidence that
what you thought you heard was
what was actually spoken is vital.
These abilities can be damaged both
by hearing loss and by the natural
aging process. LACE is designed to
enhance the ability to communicate
by training the brain to best utilize
these skills.
LACE works on Windows Xg, Vista
and Apple OSX 10.4 or newer and
now on home DVD players.

Crisscrossing the equator in search



of George an) blue-footed boobies


This is part four of a
six-part story about a trip
to the Galapagos Islands,
one of the most fragile
ecosystems on Earth. In
part three, which
appeared last week, the
travelers crossed the equa-
torfor the third time.
BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

During the night we
crossed the equator twice
more while heading north
and then northeast around
Isabela and then south-
east toward Isla Santiago,
Puerto Egas and Bartolome.
We were told it might be
especially rocky on board,
and it was, which was
great for sleeping but not
so good if one had to get
up to use the bathroom.
Having a 95-square-foot
cabin was a good thing as
there usually was some-
thing to hang on to while
the ship was rocking back
and forth.
At 8 a.m. Wednesday,
we boarded the panga for
another wet landing. This
time we were at Isla
Santiago, where we saw
another species of sea
lions, shore birds, marine
iguanas and followed a flat
trail around and over the
island, returning to the
sandy beach about 10:30
a.m. Those who also went
snorkeling saw more
white-tipped reef sharks


and some rays.
With expectations of
more of those "friendly"
white-tipped sharks and
more penguins, about half
of the passengers went
snorkeling and the rest
enjoyed the sun deck
while watching the frigate
birds circle overhead as we
sailed along.
Lava tubes
In the afternoon we had
a long walk after landing
on a sandy beach and then
climbing up to the top of a
lava field. The steps and
sloping walk were a bit of a
challenge as the steps
were from ofie rock to
another with skinny log
railings in some places. We
walked along a sandy path
for a while until we got to
the lava rock area, which
was nearly covered with
blackish marine iguanas
of all sizes and several col-
orful crabs. There was a
need for caution on the
lava field because there
were some lava tubes and
bridges over places where
the surf could roll in
beneath the lava field.
Along the shore we saw
more sea lions and some
fur seals. The fur seals are
chubbier animals because
of their thicker fur. Off-
shore we spotted a whale.
In the grassy area, there
were blue-footed boobies,
cacti, some unusual grass-
es found only in this part


of the world and some-
thing called a poison apple
tree. Also known as the
Manchineel tree, it is to be
totally avoided. The fruit is
deadly, and even touching
the fruit, bark or leaves of
the tree can leave a person
in misery with a burning
rash. Even rain drops from
such a tree can cause
severe blisters.
Margot pointed to the
tree. I took a photo and
then walked on down the
path between the grass
and back to the rock steps
leading down to the sandy
cove. Going down was
scarier than going up so I
concentrated totally on
finding handholds. Only
after taking the last step
down did I realize that I
had been pricked by
something. It turned out
to be a wasp sting and
Janet had some salve in
her Red Cross fanny pack.
Double ouch
The sting was soon for-


gotten, despite some swel-
ling, because, to the left, a
large sea turtle was crawl-
ing up onto the beach. It
wasn't nesting season in
the Galapagos, but it
looked like a turtle intent
on nesting, even if it was a
few months early. Janet
alerted everyone to the
turtle but did not manage
to convey to the three chil-
dren on the trip that they
should not run toward,
the turtle, which quickly
turned tail and headed
back into the surf before
any of us could get close
enough for a photo. The
one-in-a-million opportu-
nity to see a sea turtle on
the beach in broad day-
light was blown. Those
children were not as cute
as they had been the previ-
ous day.
Heidi was in the water
snorkeling while all this
happened, and as she was
coming ashore, she sud-
denly had three young sea
lions swimming past her,

two behind her and one in
front of her.
There was never a lack
of creatures to see.
Four hours had passed
and it was time to head
back to the Lettyfor lunch.
There was a large bowl of
ceviche with shrimp, a
variety of salads, sliced
radishes and red onions,
giant kernel corn, chicken
or fish. fried potato patties,
fried plantains, peanut
sauce for the chicken,
white sauce for the fish
and red sauce for the
salad. Dessert was chop-
ped melon and other
fruits, including more
white pineapple. We were
told that this was typical
Galapagos fare.
As we ate lunch, the
yacht headed toward
Bainbridge Island, where
we.would see flamingos at

Sthe edge of the lake within

gathered on the sun deck
Sat the bow as the captain
steered the Letty close to
Sthe lowest side of the
Crater. With binoculars or
Szoom camera lenses, we
* could see the pink birds
gathered at the opposite
Sedge of the shallow vol-

After seeing the flamin-

known as the Chinese hat,
.i off the southeast tip of Isla

Skeling anda beach swim in

,. was still rough, and it took
two tries to nose the panga
onto the edge of the beach.
Despite a strong current,
SHeidi got good pictures of

Swater camera. She swam
after the turtle, taking pho-
tos as she went.
We anchored near the

the most challenging walk
of the week. At our brief-
ing, Margot told us there
would be 365 steps to
climb to the top but that
the view would be incred-
ible. In 2001, I climbed
409 steps in the rain to
reach the Cristo statue
overlooking the harbor of
Rio De Janeiro, so I fig-
ured on a pleasant sunny
day, this would be a piece
of cake. Margot never
mentioned all the hills
between sections of steps.
Huffing and puffing and
far behind the leader of
1the pack, I made the
climbb, It was worth it.
From the top you can see
in all directions. We were
114 meters above sea
level and could see the
Chinese hat again plus
several other islands in
the archipelago.
A few years ago, there
were no steps. People liter-
Sally crawled up the hills,
damaging the vegetation
Sin the process, Margot
said. That is the reason the
steps were built. It took 90
minutes to go up and
down the steps. The panga
came to pick us up, and off
we went to Pinnacle Rock
for swimming and snor-
keling with more rays,
sharks, penguins and sea
lions until it was time to go
back to the Letty for lunch.
After lunch we sailed
toward another small is-
land for more walking,
mostly on sand and then
rocks. Janet said it would
be good practice for our
stop at Espanola Island
on Saturday, where we
would hike the highest
hill in the Galapagos. It
could not be any worse
than the 365 steps. We saw
blue-footed boobies, more
frigate birds, and land
iguanas that had been
introduced during World
War II when there were
soldiers on the island.
Margot said the soldiers
were sent there to help
protect the Panama Canal.
Hot and tired, we head-
ed back to the panga and
the Letty. It was 5 p.m.
We would sail north
around Baltra Island and
then south around Santa
Cruz Island, where we
would sleep Thursday night.
Friday we would finally
see the famous giant tor-
toises and George.

CAR TALK: CLICK & CLACK
Inactive car still good to go: My rich old auntie recently shed this mortal coil and
left a 1996 Toyota Camry Collector's Edition with 14,000 miles. Other than making only
spotty trips to the liquor store, the car has not been used for the past two years.
