Jazz fans want 2 p.m. concerts back


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


SUN FILE PHOTOS
Tony Onorato and The Gentlemen
of Jazz.


Never underestimate the
power of a jazz enthusiast.
Jim Perry, a retired attorney,
drew applause at a recent
meeting when he asked city
leaders to reinstate afternoon
concerts by Tony Onorato and
The Gentlemen of Jazz.
Onorato had been a fixture
at the Gazebo in Centennial
Park for six years, offering free


concerts at 2 p.m. each Thurs-
day during the winter tourist
season.
After receiving a number of
complaints from area busi-
nesses about the lack of down-
town parking, Venice Main-
Street proposed modifying the
concert start times from 2 p.m.
to 4 p.m.
In February 2008 city coun-
cil agreed to restrict concerts
until after 4 p.m. for the up-
coming season.


Onorato tried it twice this
year once at 6 p.m. and once
at 5 p.m. on Thursdays. The
change was a disaster. Used to
crowds of up to 250 people, his
Dixieland and big band jazz
sound drew only a dozen fans
at the later start time. He can-
celed the concerts.
"We didn't just pull that
time out of hat," Onorato said.
The band tried playing at

'MCC' makes


way for State


College of Florida

STAFF WRITER

Manatee Community Col-
lege has a new name.
The college's board of trus-
tees approved changing the
name to State College of Flor-
ida, Manatee and Sarasota
Counties, during a meeting at
the school's Venice campus
Wednesday.
The name change will take
effect July 1.
"The implementation of a
bachelor of science in nursing
as our first four-year degree
program offers a rare opportu-
nity to make history in consid-
ering how we might want our
college to be known in the
future," Board Chair Steve
Harner said.
Harner reviewed the
school's history, including the
college's establishment in Sep-
tember 1957; the day in 1973
when the college first began
offering classes at the Brick
Yard Plaza in Venice; and the
dedication of the current


Venice campus in 1985; as well
as the approval to offer the
BSN program at the Venice
campus in January 2010.
"There's a pattern of growth
and change," he said. "This
board has an opportunity to
make another important deci-
sion."
MCC President Lars Hafner
conducted research and spoke
with all board members indi-
vidually before presenting the
new name and logos. When he
was in Tallahassee last month
seeking approval for the BSN
program, staff at the state
board of education encour-
aged him to begin the renam-
ing process.
"They said we should go
with a name change immedi-
ately if we can, while the Leg-
islature is still in session, to
codify who we are going to be
in the future," he said. "The
name shows we will still be
serving the Sarasota and Man-
atee county areas."

'Living relics' studied

Long before T. rexes and

appearance, some 350 million
or more years ago during the
Paleozoic Era, horseshoe crabs

crabs are still spawning and

Jailed but learning how to parent

Female inmates at Sarasota County Jail learn how to instill a love of reading in their children through a book
on safety written by Bradenton author and educator Brenda Zofrea.


BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER
Parenting children from
behind prison walls sounds
like an impossibility, but one
area educator has showed a
group of jail inmates how they
can instill a love of reading in
their children with a message
of safety from sexual preda-
tors.
Female prisoners, them-
selves often victims of sexual
abuse, gathered in the Sarasota
County Jail Chapel Tuesday
morning to learn how they can
bond with their children,
many of whom are now living
with grandparents.
Brenda Zofrea, a child safety
specialist and author, donated
her book "Let's B Safe" to
inmates along with stuffed toy


bees. The bees are for their chil-
dren, but the moms squealed
with delight.
Inmates cannot receive vis-
its from children under 12, so
Vanessa Passeneau, 20, com-
municates with her 3-year-old
by phone. It can be a struggle,
Passeneau said, trying to
spend quality time on the tele-
phone with a young child who
has a short attention span.
The jail has 180 women and
801 male inmates. About 90
percent of the women have
children, said Robin Rogari,
administrative assistant for the
chaplain's office.
Female inmates told Zofrea
they worry their children are
being abused, don't get enough
sleep and miss their moms.
They worry their children will


lose affection for them and
make the same mistakes they
made.
"They have the same con-
cerns as every mom," Zofrea
said.
National statistics show that
one in four girls and one in five
boys will be abused, Zofrea
says. A show of hands among
the female inmates Tuesday
morning indicated the statistic
may be much higher among
jail populations.
"Teaching our kids to read
and to love reading and teach-
ing safety can go hand in
hand," Zofrea told them.
Based on research, Zofrea

County celebrates
oyster habitat volunteers
Sarasota County is helping
celebrate Earth Day this year
on Sunday, April 19, by honor-
ing its seagrass mapping vol-
unteers and issuing a call to
volunteers interested in help-
ing map oyster habitat.
Staff will be on hand from
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Oscar
Scherer State Park to encour-
age volunteers who own shal-
low-draft boats such as flats
boats, jon boats, kayaks and
canoes to help locate and doc-
ument oyster habitat in county
bays and estuaries.
Seagrass volunteers will
be honored with a presenta-
tion and remarks from
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Carolyn Mason at
11:30 a.m. Admission to the
park is free all day.


While knowledge about
oyster biology and ecology is
fairly extensive, there are no
complete maps depicting the
extent and abundance of oys-
ter habitat in all county bays.
County staff mapped oyster
habitat in 17 coastal creeks in
late 2008 to early 2009 and are
ready to work with volunteers
to complete the work in bays
and estuaries.
For more information, call
861-5000 and ask for Water
Resources.
Help make manatee rules
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission is beginning to evalu-
ate manatee speed zones
throughout Sarasota County
to assure they are in the right
locations to protect manatees.
The speed zones primarily are
based on manatee data and
the nature of the waterway.
A local rule review commit-
tee will represent the commu-


nity to consider proposed
FWC rule changes. The group
will be equally balanced with
manatee advocates and water-
way users.
The Sarasota County
Commission will discuss the
LRRC and appoint members
on May 13. The committee will
have two months to review
proposed rule changes and
prepare a final report for the
FWC.
For more information on
manatee protection speed
zones or to serve on the
LRRC, call 861-5000 and ask
for Resource Protection.
Post-disaster
planning forum
Residents are invited to an
open forum to discuss ideas
for rebuilding Sarasota County
coastal communities after a
disaster like a major hurricane.
The public forum is at 4:30
p.m. Monday, April 27, at Twin
Lakes Park, 6700 Clark Road,


Sarasota.
The county is planning for
disaster recovery by creating a
post-disaster redevelopment
plan.
A PDRP identifies policies,
operational strategies, and
roles and responsibilities that
will guide decisions, long-
term recovery and redevelop-
ment after a disaster. The plan
emphasizes opportunities to
mitigate hazards and make
community improvements
consistent with the compre-
hensive plan and with citizen
participation.
Sarasota County is one of
five Florida counties creat-
ing a PDRP in a pilot project
for the Florida Department
of Community Affairs and
Florida Division of Emer-
gency Management.
For more information, call
861-5000 and ask about the

Earth Day 2009

BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

To help promote more of an appreciation
for our earth, a proposal was made by Sen.
Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin that a day be
proclaimed to recognize environmental
issues facing the world.
Nelson had strong feelings
regarding population growth
and being able to maintain a
sustainable environment.
In 1970 a federal procla- .
mation was issued declaring a *
April 22 as Earth Day.
In support of Earth Day, the Venice Parks
and Recreation Advisory Board asked for,
and received, a city proclamation declaring
an annual Venice Parks Appreciation Day
each April 22. I feel that the parks system
within a city says a lot about the soul of that
city. Are there enough parks, is there a good
mix of active and passive parks, are theywell
maintained and equipped and is there an
effort of continuous improvement? In our
city the answer is "yes" to all four questions.
On Wednesday, April 22, why not visit a
city park and enjoy the natural beauty and
open space? Read a book, take a walk, toss a
ball around, visit the arboretum at West
Blalock Park but make a habit of visiting
your parks. They are here for your pleasure
and enjoyment.
The planet it's worth saving.

Former infielder

pitches stadium deal


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

The city of Sarasota
received a letter of intent
Thursday from a compa-
ny headed by ex-Yankee
third baseman Mike Pag-
liarulo for the purchase
of Ed Smith Stadium and
Complex for $10 million.
The letter from Base-
line-iScouts Group Inc. of
Massachusetts, dated
Wednesday, was sent to
Sarasota City Commis-
sioner Kelly M. Kirshner.
Thursday afternoon,
Kirshner said the deal is
in preliminary stages but
that he is "pretty excited."
"We probably want to
see if Major League Base-
ball will smile on the rela-
tionship," Kirshner said.
Finding a tenant for
the Ed Smith Stadium
has become a multifac-
eted endeavor. Currently,
both the county and city
commissions are await-
ing responses from the
Baltimore Orioles to two
letters sent in March.
The county has asked
the Orioles to submit a
written counterproposal
by Monday to a proposal
the organization had re-
jected. The city, through
City Manager Robert Bar-
tolotta, offered a short-
term lease to the Orioles
at the end of the Cin-
cinnati Reds' lease on
Oct. 31. The city gave an
April 30 deadline for a
response.
The Orioles have not
responded.
The deal
Baseline's letter of in-
tent says that, in exchange
for the $10 million pur-
chase price, Baseline
would have exclusive
ownership of the stadium
and all facilities associat-
ed with the stadium fields
and all adjacent fields.
The sale also would in-
clude development rights
for the 53-acre facility.

agreement would be fi-

sota County or the state
in renovating the com-
plex to mutually agreed
upon standards. These
conditions already were
part of the negotiations
with the Boston Red Sox
and the Cincinnati Reds.
Kirshner said he was
approached by the com-
pany as negotiations
with the Orioles started
to stall. He said the com-
pany plans to bring in a
team from Japan's Nip-
pon League (which he
said would be equivalent
to a Major League Base-
ball team). That team
would play other teams
in the Grapefruit League.
Eight Major League
teams train on Florida's
West Coast: Boston, Cin-
cinnati, Minnesota, New
York Yankees, Philadel-
phia, Pittsburgh, Tampa
Bay and Toronto. That
number would drop by
one with the Reds mov-
ing to Arizona.
In his career, Pagliaru-
lo, Baseline's president,
played for the Yankees,
Minnesota, San Diego,
Baltimore and Texas, and
had one year in the
Japanese league.
Kirshner said a suc-
cessful deal could bring
tourists from Japan for
extended stays.

Hundreds protest at tea parties


STAFF REPORT


Some 500 loud, cohe-
sive and spirited citizens
celebrated Tax Day by
holding a "tea party"
gathering Wednesday at
Centennial Park.
Protesters complained
about everything and
anything:
The government is
spending too much for
the stimulus package.
The government
needs to bring home the
troops.
The government
should let us travel to Las
Vegas and listen to Rush
Limbaugh.
They said it wasn't a
political rally, but many
held signs expressing
their opinions about the
current state of the coun-
try
"I am here because I
think our government is
out of control," said
Sharon C. Smith of
Venice, who was holding
a yellow sign that read,
"Obama is ruining our
country."
"The excessive spend-
ing that is going on is
ridiculous," she added.
She declared herself a
"proud member of the
right wing of this coun-
try," a designation many
in attendance embraced
during the 75-minute
event.

not to become radical


and force their opinions

area and was known by many as an expert
angler, spending his early years as a commer-
cial fisherman. "Buck" could always be found
hunting and fishing with his family and many friends.
In his case, he also had a story or two about the ones
that did not get away. He was known for his success-
es. He could be frequently found with his buddies at
the jetties or the Wee Blew Inn, and Monday night
music at the Venice Beach Pavilion.
He was predeceased by his parents, Roy and Irma
Buckelew, sister, Edna Buckelew Taylor, and the love
of his life, wife of 55 years, Marta Jean Taylor
Buckelew.
He came from a family that served in service from
the Revolutionary War through his father's service
during World War I. Not waiting and underage, he
enlisted in the Army Air Corps and served in the
Pacific Theater. He stayed in the service, eventually
transitioned into the U.S. Air Force and served with
the Florida National Guard. He worked for Florida
Power and Light for 38 years before retiring. During
those years, he helped build the power grid for most
of the Venice area.
Roy is survived by son Carl and wife Jan, son Roy E.
and wife Debbie and daughter Caryl and husband
George, all of Venice. He leaves seven grandchildren,
Kari, Jennifer, Bonnie, Roy E. Jr., George Jr., Adam and
Caleb; and six great-grandchildren, Kayla, Ralph Jr.,
Brian, Madison, Colum, Cash and Lyndsie, all of
Venice.
Services: A celebration of his life with family and
friends will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 18, at South
Venice Baptist Church at Baffin and U.S. 41.
Contributions: In lieu of flowers, the family requests
that donations be made to the scholarship fund for his
grandchildren and great-grandchildren at 4648 Bonita
Road, Venice, FL, or TideWell Hospice of Venice.
Marian L. Price
Marian Luona Price, age 86, of Venice, died
Thursday, April 16, 2009.
She was born in Jersey, Ohio, on June 11, 1922, to
William Clytus Wilkin and Helen Berger
Wilkin, and moved to Venice in 1990
from Indianapolis, Ind. She received her
bachelor of science and master's in
microbiology from The Ohio State
University. Following graduation, she
worked as an industry-funded researcher
at the Medical College of Virginia and
then at the Indiana University School of
Price Medicine, in Indianapolis. During her


time at IU, Marian published several scientific papers
and also worked on teams that completed some of
the original research on DNA. Also at IU, Marian lec-
tured medical students on bacteriology.
One day after leaving her laboratory, Marian
accepted a ride home from a second-year medical
student named Francis. On Dec. 17, 1949, after a year
of courtship, Marian and Francis were married at St.
Rock's Catholic Church in Indianapolis.
Once married, Marian ended her career as a sci-
entist, but she quickly began her new career as a full-
time mother; this was a career at which she also
excelled. Marian's compassion and dedication
raised children and grandchildren who have gradu-
ated from Notre Dame, IU, Purdue, Brown, Yale, the
University of Michigan, and Northwestern. Most
important, Marian always conveyed the importance
of selflessness, and this is what will continue to res-
onate the most among her family members.
In addition to raising her children and grandchil-
dren, Marian was also a member of numerous church
and community organizations. Marian was invested
by the Vatican as a Lady in the Order of The Knights of
the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem for her services to the
community and Catholic Church. Mrs. Price was a
member of the Indianapolis Country Club, the Venice
Yacht Club, JacarandaWest Country Club, Venice Golf
& Country Club, the Columbia Club, the Indianapolis
Medical Auxiliary and St. John's Catholic Church in
Indianapolis.
Surviving family members include her husband, Dr.
Francis W Price, M.D., of Venice; sons, Dr. Francis W
Price Jr., M.D., and Andrew R. Price; daughters, Susan
W Price and Carol N. Moore; brother, Fred Wilkin; nine
grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
Above all, Marian will be remembered for her ded-
ication to her family. She was the epitome of "putting
family first." In 59 years of marriage, Francis never
heard Marian complain once. Among her children,
grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Marian will
always be remembered for her positive outlook. No
matter where she was or how she felt, Marian always
reminded us: "It is a beautiful day." It surely is,
Marian, and although we no longer have you to
remind us of this, every moment we are reminded of
your memory will undoubtedly be beautiful
Services: Visitation will be at Farley Funeral Home,
Venice Chapel, from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. on

Disabled plane doesn't ground mercy missions


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Agape Flights' King Air
90 airplane made an un-
scheduled critical land-
ing only 30 minutes short
of its destination in
Eleuthera, Bahamas, on
April 1.
The plane experi-
enced mechanical failure
when one of its engines
quit. The pilots set the
wounded plane down at
an airport in the north
Bahamas.
"We were very lucky to
be able to reach the air-
port and make an accu-
rate landing," said pilot
JeffYannucciello. "I really
feel that God was watch-
ing out for us."
Yannucciello was fly-
ing with pilot Steve Koch
at the time of the engine
failure. Neither pilot re-
ceived any injuries in the
incident.
Today, King Air 90 sits
at the airport in Eleu-
thera awaiting the engine
Agape Flights has select-
ed to replace the dam-
aged one.
"That engine is in the
middle of an inspection
in Oklahoma," Executive
Director Charles Gardner
said on Wednesday. "We
will know Friday or Mon-
day if it passes the in-
spection."
If it does, Agape will
rent the engine to use in
the King Air 90 until the
damaged engine can be
evaluated in Oklahoma
to see if it can be re-
paired.
"It is best if we can re-
pair that engine because
we already are familiar
with it," Gardner said.


PHOTO COURTESY OF AGAPE FLIGHTS
Agape Flights' King Air 90 (aka Grace), shown here at the Venice Municipal Airport ready
to carry supplies to missionaries in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, lost an engine on
April 1 and has been grounded in the islands since then.


"The cost to repairing the
engine will be about
$150,000."
If the damaged engine
cannot be repaired, it will
cost about the same
amount to purchase a re-
furbished engine.
"The King Air 90 is a
40-year-old plane that we
rebuilt and the engines
were used," Gardner said.
"One engine failed and
the plane flies fine on only
one engine, but the FAA
won't allow that."
The King Air 90's first
flight with Agape was
Dec. 20, just in time to
deliver Christmas pre-
sents and packages to
missionary families in
Haiti and the Dominican
Republic.
Gardner expects to
have an engine ready to
take to the King Air 90 in


WANT TO HELP?
If you want to assist
Agape Flights in repair-
ing or purchasing an
engine for the King Air
90 plane, send a dona-
tion to Agape Flights,

about two weeks.
"Some friends with a
DC-3 will fly the engine,
tools and our mechanics
to Eleuthera," he said. "It
will take about four to six
weeks to repair our en-
gine, so we still have a
need for airplanes and
donations."
The mission
goes on
This wasn't the first


brush with disaster expe-
rienced by Agape Flights.
On Dec. 20, 2007, Agape's
Cessna Grand Caravan
crashed in the Caribbean
Sea.
Volunteer pilots Rocky
Miller and Paolo Costa
survived the accident
without injury.
The crash was the
result of an engine failure
and the Cessna was
deemed a "total loss," ac-
cording to LindseyThies-
sen, Agape Flights' public
relations director.
Agape Flights operat-
ed for more than a year
using rented, borrowed
and chartered planes
until enough funds were
raised to purchase the
King Air 90.
On April 1 when the
King Air 90 engine failed,
a missionary partner of


Agape Flights donated
the use of his airplane to
continue the delivery
route to Haiti and the
Dominican Republic.
Agape Flights is a
501(c)(3) nonprofit Chris-
tian ministry that makes
more than 52 flights each
year carrying shipments
of mail, care packages
and critical supplies to
some 380 missionary
families in Haiti, the
Dominican Republic and
the Bahamas.
Agape Flights is com-
mitted to remaining debt
free and relying on God's
people for the resources
and donations needed to


purchase a replacement
engine to continue its
mission work, according
to its Web site.
"What happens when
we're in a spot like this is
that people all around
the country pitch in to
help," Gardner said.
"That's one of the things
about Venice so many
people are so willing to
help."
Because of the quick
response from support-
ers, Agape Flights made
two flights on April 15,
the day of the interview
with Gardner.

Feathers says he was not



one of 'Balkwill's boys'


Oh Baby,

Startstoday What a


Former Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office IT manager
begged for his job.
BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT COMMUNITY
NEWS EDITOR
Begging to keep his job with the
Sarasota County Sheriff's Office,
Jeff Feathers suggested his pay be
cut or to have some benefits taken
away. However, Feathers resigned
before Sheriff Tom Knight could
fire him, following an internal
affairs investigation.
Feathers, the former IT director
for the Sheriff's Office, sent two e-
mails to administrators recently. He
admitted signing off on an office
computer that was later found at
former Sheriff Bill Balkwill's home.
Last year, the Dell computer was
listed as obsolete and sent out to be
recycled. However, an internal
investigation proved that never
happened. Investigators discovered
the computer still existed. Then
11,000 e-mails on the computer's
hard drive were erased before
Knight was able to retrieve it.
The Sheriff's Office is being
sued by Prison Health Services.


Some of the information in the suit
involves the deleted e-mails.
When asked where the signed
paperwork authorizing the com-
puter's destruction was, Feathers
failed to produce it. Later, in his
office, investigators found only an
unsigned form, similar to the one
they were looking for. Following
their search of Feathers' office, an
administrative secretary gave them
the original document. It had
Balkwill's, Feathers' and another
sheriff's employee's signatures on it.
Feathers said his involvement
in filing false paperwork was a
"misstep." He offered to take a pay
cut to be more in line with others.
He said the $10,000 raise given to
him in 2004 was because he had
another job offer and Balkwill
matched it to keep him. The raise
was not a result of him being one
of "Balkwill's boys," Feathers wrote
in his e-mail. He said Balkwill
promised Feathers would be more
involved in communication and
other IT projects in the adminis-
tration, but it never happened.
Feathers wrote if he was let go,
the IT department "would splin-
ter and would lose more quality
people."
"If I am not in your IT section it

will be made, bringing someone
else in would set back the depart-
ment for a year or more," he wrote.
Investigators recommended
Feathers be terminated, along
with filing criminal charges.
Feathers wrote that he was only
following orders from his boss.
In a reply to Feathers, Knight
wrote that the Sheriff's Office must
maintain "high standards."
Prison Health Services filed its
lawsuit after Balkwill awarded a $9
million contract to its competi-
tion, Armor Correctional Health
Services, on the day he announced
his retirement. Armor is the firm
that provides health care at the jail.
Prison Health Services claimed
Balkwill was lobbied by Armor
through fishing trips and dinners
in 2006 and 2007, totaling about
$1,500, with former Armor CEO
Doyle Moore, according to court
documents.
Prison Health believes Balkwill
was offered a job with Armor, a
claim Balkwill denied last year.
Balkwill said he picked the firm
because it provided the lowest bid
for jail services.

6,000 seek county prescription card


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


Close to 6,000 people signed up
for the free prescription discount
drug card program promoted by
Sarasota County the first week it
became available, according to
Martin Dettelbach, Financial Mark-
eting Concepts Inc. chief marketing
officer.
Dettelbach said that FMC, the
Ponte Vedra Beach-based compa-
ny distributing the cards, has been
tracking the number of Coast2-
Coast Rx Cards downloaded from
the Web site, www.coast2coastrx.
com/sarasotafl.
The pharmacy benefit manager
is WellDyneRX in Lakeland.
The program offers discounts
for more than 58,000 brand name
and generic drugs to county resi-
dents. Animal owners can receive
discounts for pet medication if it is


for prescription drugs.
The Coast2Coast Rx Card is
expected to save county residents
an average of 35 percent on the
retail cost of prescriptions, based
upon company data. Insulin and
diabetes supplies including
testing strips, lancets and alcohol
swabs are among items subject
to discount if they are prescribed,
Dettelbach said. However, diabet-
ics who are on insulin pumps will
receive a discount only for insulin.
Also excluded from the pro-
gram are Schedule I, II and III
Drug Enforcement Administra-
tion-listed drugs such as Ritalin,
OxyContin and Percocet, and ana-
bolic steroids.
Where it is
Sarasota residents can obtain a
discount card at libraries and
health departments, and pharma-
cies such as CVS, Kmart, Medicine


Shoppe, Publix, Sam's Club, Sweet-
bay, Target, Walgreen's, Walmart
and Winn-Dixie. Some indepen-
dent pharmacies also are in the
program.
There is no cost to the con-
sumer for the card. There are no
stipulations as to age, income or
existing health coverage. However,
the card cannot be used in con-
junction with another prescription
program.
Due to a gap in coverage,
Medicare Part D participants may
pay up to $3,000 annually in out-
of-pocket expenses. The card can
help participants pay for prescrip-
tions outside coverage.
Sarasota County will receive 50
cents per prescription filled
monthly through the program. If
5,000 residents use the plan at
least one time, the county would
realize $2,500 in royalties.

The Community Pharmacy growing quickly

Day after day, Kimberly Chmielewski's clients tell
her stories of being denied food stamps, Medicaid
and other assistance.
"So many people are being told no," she said.
Chmielewski, however, is looking to say yes to as
many people as she can.
As executive director of The Community Pharm-
acy, Chmielewski has been providing free prescrip-
tion medication to low-income individuals since
January 2008. In just a year, the organization has
given out more than $1 million in medication.
The Community Pharmacy operates out of

according to Chmielewski.
The newest chapter opens April 23 at St. David's

The pharmacy is funded entirely by donations.
Financial donations are made by individuals and
businesses in the community. Medication, however,
is donated by doctors, hospitals and even pharma-
ceutical manufacturers. According to Chmielewski,
funding is tight but the Community Pharmacy is
doing its best to assist everyone it can.

said. "I want to give it to the people who need it."

Because osteoporosis begins later in
men's lives than women's, most men
with the bone-thinning disease are over
age 65. Men should therefore be aware
of their risk and take steps to get a
proper diagnosis. Until osteoporosis is
quite advanced, it is a "silent" disease.

Beware of job-offer con games


KEN KLEINLEIN

CRIME SCENE COLUMNIST


I was approached by a local
resident who had come into
contact with a company that
offers to secure jobs for people
seeking employment. Out of
work and looking for a job, he
jumped at the chance and
requested more information.
The company responded
and he was directed to send a
check for $250 to cover fees
along with some sensitive per-
sonal information. The vic-
tim's check was cashed a short
time later and he never heard
from the company again.
Efforts to contact it was unsuc-
cessful. I instructed him to
contact his bank and credit
card providers. He did so, and


to date has not suffered any
further losses.
Be aware that information
sent by e-mail could give crooks
access to confidential informa-
tion stored in you computer.
This type of con game is very
prevalent in our present finan-
cially troubled times.
However it is by no means a
new scam just an old one
adapted and adjusted to fit into
contemporary society.
Victims may be approached
in person when leaving or
entering an employment office,
e-mail, telephone, U.S. mail or
by ads in newspapers.
The Sarasota and Charlotte
sheriff's offices, and North
Port, Venice, Sarasota and
Longboat Key police depart-
ments have released informa-
tion regarding this type of con-
fidence game.
Some years ago, the Houston,
Texas, Police Department arrest-
ed one Emil Conrad Martin and
charged him with employment
fraud. The suspect represented
himself to victims as a recruiting
agent for Continental Airlines.
He would meet with them and
charge up to $600 as a fee for
materials and administrative
services to secure a position.
Martin committed more than 40
of these scams over a two-


month period.
In New York City, Thomas
Steed was arrested by the Metro
North Police Department,
assisted by the NYPD Special
Frauds Squad. Steed contacted
individuals who had applied for
positions with the railroad and
charged them up to $1,200 to
secure jobs. He guaranteed that
after making payment they
would be hired within days. The
victims never heard from him
again until his arrest.
If you come into contact with
individuals offering to secure a
job, be very wary. Some are
legitimate and others are not.
The phony ones set up answer-
ing services, fake e-mails and
Web sites and mailing addresses
that are usually post office boxes
listed as suites.
If you have any concerns,
contact local law enforcement or
the Federal Trade Commission at
(877) 382-4357.

NYPD special frauds detective

Fatal crash
Robin A. Mansfield, 42, of
Myakka City, died in an auto-
mobile crash on U.S. 41 in
Venice Friday about 12:40 a.m.
Mansfield wasn't wearing a
seat belt, according to a Florida
Highway Patrol report.
Mansfield was traveling
north on U.S. 41 in the center
lane when she attempted to
change to the outside lane not
realizing there was a car there.
When she veered back to the
left her left front tire struck the
raised concrete median. She
traveled a short distance with
the tire on the median and
then it began to rotate in a
counterclockwise manner and
entered the southbound lanes,
where it went into the path of a
vehicle driven by Ricardo
Hernandez, 51, of Kissimmee,
traveling south on U.S. 41 in
the outside lane.
Hernandez attempted to
stop, but the front of his vehi-
cle struck the right side of
Mansfield's vehicle. Both vehi-
cles came to rest in the outside
southbound lane of U.S. 41.
Mansfield's vehicle was facing
in a westerly direction and
Hernandez's vehicle was facing
south against Mansfield's vehi-
cle.
Neither Hernandez nor his
passenger, Jeffrey A. Syc, 42, of

Scam alert
Two elderly females living in
South Venice were called by a
man representing himself as a
bank examiner in mid-Feb-
ruary. Both victims were in-
structed to meet a law enforce-
ment officer at a designated
location for instructions on
how to assist in a bogus inves-
tigation to catch an embez-
zling teller. Both victims met
with the man, who is described
as a white male, 50-60 years
old, about 5 feet 9 inches to 6
feet tall, average build and
complexion.
The victims made with-
drawals from their bank ac-


counts for more than $5,000
and gave the cash to the sus-
pect thinking they were assist-
ing the bank and law enforce-
ment.
The Sarasota County Sher-
iff's Office reminds citizens
that banks and law enforce-
ment would never use private
citizens to conduct such an
investigation. If you are ever
contacted by anyone posing as
a bank representative or law
enforcement officer who re-
quests your assistance, let the
caller know you have heard of
this scam and immediately
report the call to your bank
and local law enforcement.

OUR VIEW



Volunteers are the backbone of a community


Y ou may not realize it, but your
life in Venice is better because
hundreds of people you don't
know help you every day for free.
If you frequent the library, you've
probably had a volunteer check out a
book for you that another volunteer
put on the shelf.
If you've visited Venice Regional
Medical Center, a volunteer greeted
you and gave you directions. If you
stayed there, a volunteer wheeled you
out.
If you've called the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce or Venice
MainStreet for a referral, a volunteer
answered the phone.
If you've had business with any city
board other than city council, it was
volunteers you were dealing with.
And that's just the tip of the volun-
teer iceberg.
The people who run these enter-
prises and many, many others will tell


you flat out that they couldn't func-
tion as they do if they couldn't count
on hundreds of people who perform
important work for nothing more
than a thank-you and the feeling of
having given something back to their
community.
Then there are the organizations
composed of nothing but volunteers:
service clubs, neighborhood founda-
tions, advocacy groups, support
groups, clubs the list goes on and
on.
What have they done for you? Well,
for example, Service Club Park (ser-
vice clubs and the Venice Parks and
Recreation Advisory Board), Venetian
Waterway Park (Venice Area Beau-
tification Inc.) and the Historic Train
Depot acquisition and restoration
(the late Rollins Coakley) are largely
the work of volunteers. We would all
be much poorer without them.
If you're 50-65 and can't afford


needed medical care, you can seek it
at the Senior Friendship Centers
thanks to retired physicians and den-
tists who volunteer their time. If you
need adaptive technology at home
but can't afford it, you can turn to
Medical Engineering Volunteers of
Florida for help.
If you can't read, you can learn to
do so with the help of Literacy Vol-
unteers of America. If you need help
with your taxes, AARP's tax preparers
will do them for you. If...
Obviously, we can't list all of the
things volunteers do for us or the
organizations they work for. And just
as obviously, not every need of every
person can be satisfied for free.
That's especially true in this econo-
my, when needs are at their highest
and donations are down.
A lot of people who used to give to
worthy causes are recipients today,
and even people in a position to con-


tribute now are waiting to see if things
are turning around before donating
money they might need soon.
But those of us who can't write a
check can still give of ourselves. If you
can spare just an hour or two a week,
you can be a mentor to a child, greet
people at the Venice Archives and
Area Historical Collection or help
someone at your church. Whatever
your area of experience or interest,
there's someone who could use a
hand.
We're teaming up with MainStreet
on April 21 to observe National Vol-
unteer Week by recognizing some of
our community's hardest workers.
Join us at the Gazebo downtown at
4:30 p.m. to say thanks to them for
helping make life here so great.
And if you aren't already pitching
in, consider it.
The pay may stink, but the fringe
benefits are fantastic.


City needs to keep


bigplanes off4-22


MIKE RAFFERTY
GUEST COLUMNIST

Ever since Venice Air-
port Business Associa-
tion's press conference
last summer, safety con-
cerns about the use of
runway 4-22 at the Venice
Municipal Airport have
been a popular topic of
discussion.
Sparked by the Sept.
19, 2008, fatal accident in
Columbia, S.C., Venice
City Council has been
urged to implement safe-
ty restrictions on the use
of runway 4-22. In that
crash, a Learjet blew a
tire, attempted a rejected
takeoff, hit the runway
lights, crashed through a
boundary fence, crossed
a highway and came to
rest on the side of an
embankment.
Prior city correspon-
dence had set the stage
by warning how a similar
occurrence happening
on runway 4-22 could be
avoided at the Venice air-
port.
In a July 10, 2008,
memo to the mayor and
council, Airport Director
Fred Watts stated that the
weight-bearing capacity
for runway 4-22 was
24,000 pounds for dual-
wheel aircraft. That infor-
mation came from Kent
Bontrager, a professional
engineer with MEA/Han-
son, Venice's airport con-
sultant at the time.
About the same time,
Scott Brady, another pro-
fessional engineer with
MEA/Hanson, sent an e-
mail to Watts regarding
the pavement strengths
that were provided by
Bontrager. With regard to
runway 4-22, Brady stat-
ed: "The strengths re-
ported for runway 4-22
are based on daily depar-
tures for a five-year re-
maining pavement life.
The runway can accom-
modate some heavier
use, but will deteriorate
faster. Also note that run-
way 4-22 has a base with
substandard strength
and elastic properties,
similar to runway 13-31
before it was rehabilitat-
ed. A heavy aircraft could
experience a shear failure
similar to that which
happened at SRQ (Sara-


sota airport) back in the
1980s.
Also on July 10, 2008,
Kelly Rubino, a profes-
sional engineer and vice
president of MEA/Han-
son, in a letter to Chuck
Schmieler ofVABA, com-
mented on issues related
to runway 4-22. In that
letter, Rubino states:
"The runway 4-22 struc-
ture is probably deficient
for continued long-term
use by jet aircraft over
24,000 pounds dual-
wheel gear based on
pavement fatigue."
Rubino goes on to dis-
cuss the substandard
characteristics of runway
4-22 and the shear failure
at SRQ, where an aircraft
punched through the
pavement. Rubino con-
cludes with his recom-
mendation that runway
13-31 is a better choice
for safe jet operations at
this time.
In response to Nick
Carlucci's request to eval-
uate the safety of runway
4-22, the Federal Aviation
Administration respond-
ed on Aug. 27, 2008, that
the runway was intended
for use by group A-i and
B-l aircraft, and for that
purpose, was safe to use.
According to FAA, Group
A-i and B-l airplanes are
typically small piston-
engine aircraft weighing
less than 12,500 pounds.
FAA does list jet aircraft in
these groups, but they
weigh less than 24,000
pounds.
In November 2008,
Watts was successful in
having the FAA change
the posted limits for run-
way strength based on
the MEA/Hanson data
from the summer. In ad-
dition, the FAA posting
stated that prior permis-
sion is required for air-
craft exceeding runway
weight bearing capacity
by calling the airport
manager.
In layman's language
what all this means is
that aircraft with dual-
wheel landing gear that
weigh more than 24,000
pounds are not allowed
to use runway 4-22 with-
out permission of the air-
port manager.
This limitation is bas-
ed on safety considera-
tions. Aircraft weighing
more than 24,000 pounds,
if allowed to use runway
4-22, would hasten dete-
rioration of the runway
and could actually punc-
ture the surface, resulting
in an accident similar to
the one that happened at

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Problems at Caspersen are few


Editor:
I'm the fellow who for the last five years has con-
ducted nature walks on Venice area beaches as a vol-
unteer for the county. I read with interest your
Caspersen article, particularly because I conduct
nature walks there on a regular basis. And while I am
saddened by the negative publicity, it has to be report-
ed.
I believe there are only three park attendants re-
sponsible for keeping Service Club Park, the pier area,
the dog beach, South Brohard Park and Caspersen
Beach clean, mainly keeping the trash cans empty
and bathrooms clean. All too infrequently do I see
supervisors at Caspersen and they are usually in or
near their white trucks. As a result, I am the only "park
face" albeit a volunteer who regular walks those
trails. As a former resident of the North Jersey shore,
to be honest with you, for all of those hundreds of
park visitors, we experience very few problems.
My main concerns are those guys who sit in their
cars in the parking lots rather than those way out on
the trails. The other group is those who decide to live
in the woods, as many of these folks have other prob-
lems beyond homelessness, such as mental illness or
dependency problems. My annoyance with them is
the messes they leave (I'm the guy who cleans them
up) and their need to build fires in the woods instead
of using the grills in the picnic areas.
On the bright side, Caspersen is a wonderful,
award-winning rural beach not very different than
what the early settlers found here.

Treat us like
sixth-graders
Editor:
I contend that much
of our economic crisis
was caused by manipu-
lating how essential
products and services are
packaged and sold in
order to hide how people
make profits or perpe-
trate actual fraud.
Examples are stock
market derivatives and
hedge funds as in the
Madoff situation; "prod-
ucts" invented by insur-
ance firms; new types of
bank accounts that defy


analysis; and most laws
and regulations on all
levels.
A penchant for com-
plicating our lives is a
national disease. Look at
the 3-million-page feder-
al income tax code that
fosters mass confusion
and corruption. It should
be replaced by a simpler
value-added tax system.
Look at the postal ser-
vice's complex rate struc-
ture with hundreds of
different categories that
require weighing, mea-
suring and determining
destinations. It's only on


the Web site; no printed
lists of rates are available.
Postal clerks don't even
understand it. People
can actually shop around
for best rates among dif-
ferent post office branch-
es in their areas.
Congress wants to
eliminate derivatives and
many deceptive prac-
tices, but I'm cynical
about a body that is ad-
dicted to contaminating
bills with earmarks and
itself is nearly nonfunc-
tional.
I suggest rewriting all
laws and regulations so a
sixth-grader can under-
stand them, clearly de-
scribing all products and
services; enforcing rigid
"truth in advertising"
laws; and putting all ob-
scure fine-print items in
big print if they are
important.
These measures, I be-


lieve, can help u
from this crisis
store a "kinder
tier" society. Or
ing too simple-n

WEEKEND EDITION APRIL 18, 2009


FRAN VALENCIC
COLUMNIST


"You sure have raised
'new normal' to a new
level," Kathy Dailey said
as she stopped in at my
house for a visit.
Kathy was referring to
my recent cancer surgery
at Moffitt Cancer Center
in which I had my left
arm and shoulder ampu-
tated.
Kathy is a former Ven-
ice assistant city manag-
er. We met about 15 years
ago when I first started
covering events for The
Venice Gondolier Sun and
one of Kathy's jobs was to
represent the city at
events. Because we were
both from Ohio, cheered
for the Cleveland Indians
and Cleveland Browns
and had a party spirit, we
soon became girlfriends.
It's this relationship
that allowed Kathy to ask
questions about my "new
normal." I taught Kathy
these words over the
years. Whenever she fac-
ed challenges in her life, I
called them her "new
normal."
"When I told my mom
about your surgery, I told
her you did it for your


granddaughters," Kathy
said when we started to
talk.
"That's one reason,
Kathy," I said. "I have a
good life, so I had the
surgery because I wanted
to live. I was in excruciat-
ing pain and knew I
couldn't live like that any
longer without surgery. It
would have gotten worse.
My cancer had taken my
life."
"What was it like for
you the night before sur-
gery," Kathy wanted to
know. "Did you say good-
bye to your arm?"
'Actually, Kathy, I did
say goodbye to my arm,"
I said. "I thanked it for 66
years. I told it I knew its
tissue would be used all
over the world for cancer
research.
"I told it I hoped its tis-
sue would help find a
cure and treatment for
this kind of cancer and so
my granddaughters and
their friends would never
have to deal with it again."
I told Kathy I didn't cry.
I felt at peace with my
decision.
I did pray: "Father, if it
is possible let this cup
pass from me." I also told
God he still had time for a
great miracle, which is
what my complete heal-
ing would have been.
It's been four weeks
since my surgery. My
stitches are out and I'm
healing. I can tell I am
feeling better as I am
ready to start driving.
I did cook a mini tradi-
tional Easter dinner one-
handed. I learned I need


practice breaking eggs. I
also learned that while
my mind is ready to leap
forward, my body has
limited energy and needs
to move slowly.
The cards and good
wishes from my readers
and friends continue to
speed my recovery. Thank
you.
Among the special
wishes I received is a card
from Patrick Burke, a stu-
dent at Loveland Center.
His card included a copy
of a part of my column
from June 2006 when I
covered the Loveland
Follies at the Venice The-
atre.
In the column I wrote,
"One of the highlights of
this year's show was
Patrick Burke's reading of
'The Sunset Poem,' writ-
ten by the students at
Loveland.
'As you watch the Ven-
ice sunset, remember
these lines from the
poem: 'I see angels flying
in the sunset and you can
almost reach them.'"
Patrick included a
note to me:
"Dear Fran, I am writ-
ing you to tell you I hope
you get well soon. You
wrote about me once. I
have it on my wall. It
makes me feel good and I
hope this card made you
feel good too. Love, Pat-
rick.
Patrick's note did
make me feel better, and
I know it makes you feel
better too.

NAME: STATE COLLEGE OF FLORIDA? ? CALL US AT 207-1111.

Sewers weren't wanted when we were flush


No change. Again water and sewers for South
Venice? The worst economy in our country's history
and the South Venice Civic Association and Sarasota
County have the audacity to propose this high-cost
taxing project again. Check the records, especially the
results of two loud and clear votes from South Venice
residents. The overwhelming vote then was "no." It
has not changed.


Box cutter. I ordered a
pizza from a restaurant
on the island. When I
went to pick up the pizza
the price was more than
what was quoted on the
phone. I asked the young
female clerk why the
price had gone up no
more than 15 minutes
after the fact, and she
told me that the addi-
tional charge was for the
take-out pizza box. When
I got home I called other
restaurants to see if they
charged additional mon-
ey for the box to put the


pizza in to carry it out,
and they do not. So
therefore, I will not be go-
ing back to this particular
restaurant any longer.
Missing? At Blalock
Park, the Venice Sym-
phony put on a free con-
cert for the community. It
was a wonderful concert.
Conspicuously absent
was the Venice Police
Department. There were
more than 1,000 people
there, all kinds of cars,
traffic gridlock. Shame
on the police depart-
ment, their chief and


their lack of involvement
in a community event
such as this. What are we
getting for our taxes with
the Venice Police Depart-
ment?
EDITOR'S NOTE: Several
readers have commented
that VPD officers were pre-
sent, writing tickets for vehi-
cles parked illegally.
Surprise! I am angry
about all that bail-out
money sent to AIG. So
this week, I get my insur-
ance bill under a differ-
ent name, 21st Century
Insurance, and my insur-
ance went up. I don't
think that's fair.
P.U. Grove Terrace
stinks literally. Just
drive down 41 toward
East Venice Avenue and
take a whiff. Who would
want to live there and
smell that all day? Shame.


CITY from Page 10A


Columbia, S.C.
DY, the city's current airport consul-
tant, has placed cameras at each run-
way end to monitor, record and count
aircraft using the airport. That proce-
dure, as recently explained by DY
Project Manager Lisa Mastropieri, is
capable of identifying each specific air-
craft and the runway that aircraft used
to operate at the airport.
Such a system will provide a method
to monitor any violations of the weight
limitations.
The problem with all this is that the
city has chosen not to enforce the
weight limitations even though there
have been a number of eyewitness
reports brought to the attention of the
mayor and council.
The mayor recently contacted Bart
Vernace, FAA Orlando, on this matter
and was advised that FAA does not pro-
hibit overweight use of a runway, but
rather that it is up to the pilot or owner.
The operative word from the Vernace


conversation is "owner." The city of
Venice is the owner and the one
responsible for the safe operation of
the airport.
Three qualified professional consul-
tants have advised against the use of 4-
22 by overweight aircraft; the FAA has
stated 4-22 is intended for use by light
aircraft; the NTSB, should it be called in
to investigate an accident, will certain-
ly hold the city accountable should a
weight violation be determined to be a
contributing factor to any accident.
The course is clear: Aircraft exceed-
ing 24,000 pounds dual-wheel gear are
not to use 4-22 at this time.
By adopting this position, Venice is
not denying access to the airport, as
aircraft exceeding 24,000 pounds can
use the main runway, 13-31, which has
recently been rehabilitated and is the
primary runway.
This is a policy matter that council
must adopt and a safety measure the
city must enforce.

"It's a big step, but it's a step

The vote to rename the

Susan Miller Kelly and Carlos

"My vote today will not re-

Hafner will report to the

In the book, she differentiates
between strangers and strangeness,
giving practical advice on whom to
turn to if a child needs an adult in a
hurry.
For example, one verse in the book
reads:
"Surprises with friends
Are lots of fun
But secrets with adults
Should never be done."
Zofrea encouraged inmates to read

to show them how important it is to
read."
Staring back at Zofrea with brows
wrinkled before their time, inmates
paid close attention to her words.
"This is fabulous," one mom said.
"He's really going to love this."
The book helps start a conversation,
said inmate Donna Clark, who has two
children, ages 18 and 10.
"A lot of younger moms don't know
how to talk to their kids because they
weren't talked to," Clark said.

two years Angie Machniak, the lead bi-
ologist on the project, said researchers
have noted a decline in horseshoe crab
populations in Tampa Bay and other
water bodies. Meanwhile, Cedar Key
and other areas have documented
numerous horseshoe crabs, she said.
"I can't tell you why," Machniak said.
The institute is hoping for funding
for a study that might discover reasons
for the sharp declines. In the mean-
time, the public can help to update
information on horseshoe crab popu-
lations.

No crab
Horseshoe crabs considered "liv-
ing fossils"- are no relation to true
crabs and are actually related to scorpi-
ons, ticks and land spiders. They were
originally called "horsefoot crabs"
because their shape was thought to
resemble a horse's hoof. While three
species exist in Southeast Asia, only one
species roams U.S. waters.
Horseshoe crabs can be called true
"blue bloods."
A horseshoe crab's blood is copper
based, and its blood is literally the color
blue unlike the red blood of humans
and other mammals, which is iron
based. Several other crab species also
have blue, copper-based blood.
Scientists discovered an extract from
the horseshoe crab's blood called lysate
that is used to test the purity of medi-
cines. Certain properties of the shell
have also been used to speed blood
clotting and to make absorbable
sutures.
Horseshoe crabs do have some com-
mercial value and are harvested as bait
for eels and conch in other states. In
Florida, horseshoe crabs are primarily


harvested by the marine-life industry
for aquarium, research or other educa-
tional uses.
In Florida, horseshoe crabs serve as
forage for loggerhead turtles and large
sharks. Sea birds also feed on horse-
shoe crabs.
Habitats
According to a 2007 institute techni-
cal report by Susan D. Gerhart, horse-
shoe crabs are more dominant on
Florida's Atlantic shorelines than the
Gulf of Mexico coast. Gerhart suggests
the differences in populations could be
due to tidal frequency, temperature
and moisture content on beaches
where they nest.
Scientists have discovered two dif-
ferent genetic strains of horseshoe
crabs on the Gulf and Atlantic coasts.
Horseshoe crabs mate along the
wrack lines of beaches. They bury their
eggs on beaches in clutches of 2,000 to
30,000 eggs. Only 0.06 percent of the
eggs survive.
"While on the beach, adult horse-
shoe crabs encounter many risks, prin-
cipally exposure to high temperatures
and (drying out)," Gerhart wrote.
Horseshoe crabs can die if they are
flipped on their backs from wave action
or other reasons.
"Horseshoe crabs also appear to pre-
fer spawning on narrow beaches, possi-
bly because the risk of stranding is
lower," Gerhart wrote.
Horseshoe crabs spawn primarily in
the spring, usually until the end of
April.
However, horseshoes have been ob-
served spawning all year in Florida.

County welcomes state
rowing championships
Sarasota County's Nathan
Benderson Park, 2500 N.
Honore Ave., will host the
44th Annual Florida Scholastic
Rowing Association State
Championships, 7 a.m.- 6 p.m.,
Saturday and Sunday, April 25-26.
The competition will feature
rowing teams from more than
40 Florida high schools.
Parking for the competition is
available by taking University
Parkway to North Cattlemen
Road (just west of Interstate
75, exit 213). Spectator shuttles
will run all day from the parking
area to the venue.
For more information, contact
the Sarasota County Call
Center at 941-861-5000
and ask about the 44th
Annual Florida Scholastic
Rowing Association State
Championships.


Brandi Moore, who has two children
ages 11 and 5 months, thinks that's true.
"Once you've had problems with the
law, what you feel doesn't really matter
anymore," said Moore, 28. "I think it
was a positive thing that she came to
the jail."
Rogari agreed.
"A lot of these girls never had a
home, were raised in the street," she
said. "We're not here to judge them. We
all make mistakes. Any of us could be in
jail at any time."
Zofrea said she hopes the book will
be a tool to help stop the cycle of abuse.
One inmate, a victim of childhood
rape, sobbed at the end of the program.
Others held back, eyes misted over with


sadness or glazed with helplessness,
rage or fatigue.
"There's no statute of limitations on
child abuse," Zofrea said. "You need to
report it."
Zofrea is a national child safety
activist and helped get Joan's Law
passed in New Jersey. That law aims to
make it impossible for anyone who
raped or murdered a child to get out on
parole. She also helped get the Child
Predator Protection Act signed by for-
mer President Bill Clinton.
About half the children of inmates
will end up in jail themselves unless
they get the proper parenting, Zofrea
said.

noon, but that interfered with the lunch
crowd, he said. Evening hours were too
cool for the older crowd he attracts.
"Two o'clock to four was perfect."
For Onorato, it's a matter of don't-fix-
it-if-it-ain't-broke.
Onorato and Perry expressed disap-
pointment with Venice MainStreet for
pushing the change.
First time
On Tuesday MainStreet's Executive
Director K.C. Quaretti-Lee defended
what she considered a workable solu-
tion, but said her organization was will-
ing to revisit the issue.
"The merchants and businesses
downtown love the music," she said.
"We are only trying to stagger the start
times a bit.
"We didn't ask them to start at five or
six. That was their choice. We asked
them to start at four in the afternoon."
Acouple of groups start at4 p.m. and
it has worked out well for them, draw-
ing good crowds, she said.
"This is our first time of doing this,"
Lee said. "Any time you make changes,
you have to revisit that to see if that is
exactly right, or do we need to alter it?"
She acknowledged that Epiphany
Cathedral offered the use of its parking
lot with 250 spaces, but it doesn't
appear that was ever publicized effec-
tively. Onorato said he was never told to
announce it.


Lee said that even with the addition-
al parking available, people tend to
want to park in Centennial Park.
Compromise
Perry believes only a few businesses
are unhappy with the old two o'clock
start time.
"I directly challenge the idea that it's
bad for business," he said.
According to business owner June
Convey of June's Island Emporium in
the Venice Centre Mall on Tampa
Avenue, Thursdays were her most prof-
itable, Perry said.
Onorato said fans from the Sum-
merville retirement home across from
the Gazebo used to tell him how much
they looked forward to his weekly con-
certs.
So did Perry. He collected a petition
with 100 signatures from Venice resi-
dents and gave it to Mayor Ed Martin
who, as it happens, is also a jazz afi-
cionado.
On Tuesday, Martin offered a possi-
ble solution move the start time to
3:30 p.m.
"There was a legitimate issue,"
Martin said. "Let's see if we can adjust
those hours a little bit and see how it
goes."
He directed the city manager to look
into modifying concert starting times.

EDITOR GREG GILES


Comp plan
process re-explained
Transmittal of the most
recent draft of the comprehen-
sive plan (draft No. 5) to city
council is expected approxi-
mately two weeks prior to a
city council workshop planned
for May 18. Staff will update
the city's Web site to include


the updated document.
In addition to a small num-
ber of outstanding issues,
which consultant Wade Trim is
working on, staff was directed
to meet with various property
owners to discuss alternative
land development standards
specific to planning areas
within the city and joint plan-
ning areas that are located out-
side the city, but are eligible for
annexation.
Upon the completion of


outstanding issues analyzed
by staff, and the receipt of al-
ternate language presented by
these select property owners,
staff will prepare an updated
document that will include
additional policy alternatives
to draft No. 5.
These alternatives and
staff's suggested amendments
related to outstanding issues
will be the remaining decision
points necessary prior to city
council scheduling the trans-


mittal public hearing.

Archives to hold four
evening openings
The Venice Archives and
Area Historical Collection, in
the Triangle Inn, 356 S. Nassau

exhibit will continue through
Oct. 1.


Sarasota County Technical Institute getting update


BY ANNE
KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER


An update on the next
phase of construction at the
Sarasota County Technical
Institute was the primary topic
during a short Sarasota County
School Board meeting Tuesday
evening.
Superintendent Lori White
reported that the district sold


$75 million in bonds to help
pay for the second phase of the
SCTI refurbishment on Beneva
Road, as well as for construc-
tion of North Port's fifth ele-
mentary school, currently
called School I. About $10.5
million of those bonds were
sold to Sarasota County resi-
dents.
'About $45 million will go to
the next phases of the techni-
cal institute construction pro-


ject," White said. "The project
will involve approximately 40
separate subcontractors ...
and employ 300 to 350 trades-
men on the project, most of
whom will tend to be from this
area."
As part of the consent agen-
da, several educational field
trips were approved by the
board. Among those are:
The North Port High
School Drum & Bugle Corps,


concert and jazz bands, will
travel to the Gatlinburg Smoky
Mountain Music Festival May
6-10 to compete.
The Sarasota High School
Speech and Debate Team is
scheduled for two May trips.
From May 1-5, they will travel
to Lexington, Ky., for a compe-
tition, then to Albany, N.Y.,
from May 22-25. Pine View
School's Speech and Debate
Team will also make the


Albany trip.
Students in the newspaper
and journalism programs at
SHS will travel to NewYork City
April 24-27 to tour several net-
work TV studios and the cam-
pus of Columbia University.
Riverview High School's
choir will visit New York City
April 9-13, where it will per-
form two major works with a
full orchestra at Carnegie Hall.

SPORTS EDITOR

North Port's Jake Sutton suicide
squeeze bunt scored the winning
run with one out in the bottom of
the seventh inning as the Bobcats
rallied for a 6-5 win over Venice in a
Class 5A-District 12 game Friday
night at North Port High.
The Indians (9-14 overall, 7-7 dis-
trict) took a 5-4 lead by scoring two
runs in the top of the seventh inning
on a Joe lorio's two-run single, which
bounced over the third baseman's
head.
Venice couldn't hold the lead as
North Port (16-4, 10-3) added its
runs in the bottom of the inning.
With one out, Pat McKenna


walked then Bryce Johnston tripled
into the left-center gap to the fence
to score McKenna. On the first pitch,
Sutton laid down a perfect bunt up
the first-base line which was fielded
by Venice first baseman Matt Tellor
as Johnston was racing home.
Johnston beat the throw by Tellor
ending the game.
Neither team scored in the first
four innings as Venice's lorio and
North Port's McKenna kept their
opponents from scoring.
Venice scored a run in the fifth
inning on a errant throw by the third
baseman. North Port added two
runs in the fifth on a high fly ball
which dropped in the infield.

Stephanie Sullivan made sure she
left Venice High on a positive note.
The senior pitched a four-hit
shutout as the Lady Indians blanked
Riverview, 3-0, on Senior Night on
Wednesday in the final regular-sea-

Sullivan (14-3), a four-year player,

Indian freshman Maler rallies baseball team to win


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice freshman Bucky Maler
made quite an entrance in his debut
in varsity baseball.
Maler, a sixth-inning substitution,
went 1-for-l with two RBI including a
walk-off sacrifice fly as the Indians
rallied from a 5-0 deficit to pull out a
8-7 win over Lakewood Ranch on
Wednesday night in a Class 5A-
District 12 game at Venice High.
"It's something we can build on,"
Venice coach Craig Faulkner said.
"One thing we are doing and it's get-
ting buried is we are hitting the ball.
We have some guys coming around
hitting."
Trailing 5-0 after four innings,
Venice (9-13 overall, 7-6 district)
scored three runs in the fifth and
sixth innings to take a 6-5 lead only to
give up the tying and go-ahead runs
in the top of the seventh inning.
Behind 7-6, Venice's Matt Tellor led
off with a walk. After a pinch-runner


was caught trying to steal second
base, Mike Geers singled. Brent
Krauss walked off Lakewood Ranch
pitcher Cas Dean. Freshman Kevin
Guthrie, who was called up to varsity,
singled into right field to score Geers
with the tying run. Courtesy runner
Andy Ellingsen advanced to third and
Guthrie raced to second as the ball
got away from the infielders.
The Mustangs (7-15 overall, 4-9
district) brought in relief pitcher Josh
Russell, who intentionally walked
Alec Stiver to load the bases with one
out.
Maler hit a fly ball to short left field
near the foul line. Left fielder Aaron
Ball caught it and threw it home try-
ing to get Ellingsen, who was trying to
score. The throw bounced once to
Ranch catcher Mike Ohlman but the
ball went off his glove as Ellingsen
slide home head first with the win-
ning run.
"Some of these young guys are hit-
ting," Faulkner said. "Big hit for us. We
have some good young players and


that is why they are up here. We are
going to use them."
The Mustangs scored a run in the
second inning on a hit, error, sacrifice
bunt and sacrifice fly.
Lakewood Ranch added four runs
in the third inning off Venice starter
Chris Atamanchuk. The Mustangs
scored a run on groundout then a run
on a single, balk and two wild pitches.
After a walk, Aaron Ball hit a two-run
home run over the left-field wall.
Despite the trouble Atamanchuk
got in two innings, the senior right-
hander was effective with eight
strikeouts in five innings.
"I feel like Chris threw better than
the runs he gave up," Faulkner said. "I
thought he pitched pretty well."
Venice's comeback started in the
fifth inning with three runs. A single
by Alec Stiver, hit batsman and walk
loaded the bases. After a pitching
change, Tellor walked to force in
Venice's first run. Geers pounded a
double into the right-center field
gap to score two runs. A third run


nearly scored but Geers was tagged
out trying to stretch his double into a
triple.
The Indians added three runs in
the sixth inning to grab a 6-5 lead.
Brent Krauss was hit by a pitch. After
a sacrifice fly, a wild pitch moved
courtesy runner Ellingsen to third
base. A groundout produced the sec-
ond out before Maler singled into left
field to score Ellingsen. Brent Skogen
crushed a two-run home run over the
365-foot sign off the scoreboard in
left field. It was Venice's second home
run of the season.
The see-saw battle continued as
Ranch scored two runs in the top of
the seventh inning. The first batter
reached after striking out on a wild
pitch third strike. A sacrifice bunt and
RBI single by Shane Davidson tied the
game. Two walks loaded the bases
then a passed ball scored the go-
ahead run setting up Venice's heroics
in its final at-bat.

The Indians scored two in
the sixth on a RBI single by
pinch-hitter Mike Knott and

TITLE from Page 14A


Last year, Venice lost in the regional
semifinal to Gulf Coast, 4-1.
Leonard, who is unbeaten this year,
used his consistent ground strokes and an
occasional approach to the net to dispose
of Lakewood Ranch's top-seed Jamie
Bardwell in straight sets, 6-0, 6-4.
"It means a lot to me," said Leonard,
who raised his record to 11-0.
Leonard was aggressive in the first set
and shut Bardwell out but the Mustang
player came back in the second set and
was ahead 2-0 before Leonard came back.
"I was just being a little more consistent
and playing better," Leonard said about
later in the second set.
"He keeps his composure calm on the
court and he's very patient," Venice coach
Manny Zafiros said. "He's a very shy kid
and that's what keeps him within himself
in the game of tennis where he can play
consistent. He doesn't let outside influ-
ences bother him."
In three district matches, Leonard only
lost nine games total.
"He worked his way up from No. 9 on
the challenge ladder all the way up,"
Zafiros said. "His mental game is so good
he is very tough to beat. Winning a district
as a freshman you don't see too many peo-
ple doing that."
Venice's Stephen Felman won two of
his three matches to place second at No. 5
singles.
Felman lost in straight sets in the finals


to Lakewood Ranch's Drew Christiansen.
At No. 2 doubles, Venice seniors
Dominic Baiamonte and Chandler Grieco
grabbed a second-place ribbon after
falling in the final to Lakewood Ranch's
Arsav Mohanty and Bardwell.

WEEKEND EDITION* APRIL 18, 2009


School board rethinking learning plan


BY ANNE
KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
School District's NeXt
Generation Learning pro-
gram, which was imple-
mented to encourage
student learning with the
assistance of technologi-
cal advances, maybe see-
ing some changes in the
future.
Board member Frank
Kovach
ques-
tioned
the pro-
gr am,
which
was put
in place
by cur-
rent
school Kovach
Super-
intendent Lori White's
predecessor, Gary Norris,
at the board's Tuesday
workshop session.
"Most of that has been
disas-
sem -
bled
due to
budget
cuts,"
Kovach
said. "I
think we
need to
look at Brown
it. We've
gotten rid of a lot of the
data and literacy coach-
es, and they were part of
the plan."
The
goal of
NeXt
Gen-
eration
Learn-
ing was
to make
educa-
t i o n
tion
active, Todd
as well
as to increase teacher
efficiency and reduce the
drop-out rates. Instal-
lation of ActiveBoards at
all schools and the idea of
small learning commu-
nities at county high
schools stemmed from
those goals.
"What we use as a
strategic
plan for
NeXt
Gener-
ation
Learn-
ing looks
nothing
like what
G a r White
Norris
sold us,"
Kovach said.
Board member Shirley
Brown agreed the strate-
gic plan for the program
needed to be reviewed.
"We've got a very im-
portant player who's
changed," she said,
meaning Norris.
Not only that, said
board member Carol
Todd, but "the premise of
the plan
w a s
wase
based
on the
maxi- ,
mum
amount
of mill-
age dol-
lars, and Zucker
we cer-
tainly
aren't receiving that any-
more.
White said the strate-
gic plan is already under
review.
"We're in the process
of consolidating projects
because we either don't
have the resources or the

"We've got a very
important player


who's changed."
Board member
Shirley Brown

people now," she said.
"We need to pick and
choose our priorities."


She said she hopes to
have a modified strategic
plan to present to the
board by August.
"And you should be
holding me accountable
for that plan," White said,
adding that she does


need the board's input.
"There are multiple
things where we decided
to go in different direc-
tions, based on the eco-
nomic situation."
Board members agreed
the strategic plan also


should be reviewed more
often.
"The superintendent
(White) inherited a stra-
tegic plan that's no
longer operable," Todd
said. "We need a plan for
this district and not a


jerry-rigged, inherited
plan."
Caroline Zucker, the
board's chair, said she
was glad Kovach brought
up the topic.
"Truthfully, I think we
should review this on a


yearly basis to see if we're
still on target," she said.
"I would welcome an
opportunity to review
our strategic plan and
see where we are as a six-
member team."

Ageless Venice


Sflier off to


another air


show

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Friday, Charles D. Mason flew up to Lakeland to pitch a tent.
"My wife and I are going to sleep in it," he said, "and I wanted to get a good
spot. We'll fly back Sunday (April 19) and stay there for the week."
Mason is 81. He is off to another air show. This time it is the
Sun 'n Fun Fly-In, little more than an hour from Venice, at the
Lakeland Linder Airport (April 21-26). Not only is this air
show/conference/trade show/exposition the second largest such
event in the world but it is also the 35th anniversary of the fly-in at Lakeland.
Last July, Mason and his wife, Elsie, were at Oshkosh, Wis., home of the
largest such event in the world, the EAA (Experimental Aviation Association)
a rs.. AirVenture Oshkosh, which is a combination air show, fly-in, conven-
tion, conference and all-around aeronautical event. The pictures
accompanying this article were taken by Mason at the Oshkosh
event. The longtime pilot also is a professional aviation photographer
who will take more photos at Lakeland.
"I have been a pilot for 64 years," he said. "And I have logged time in every year but
two."
The two years he missed, he was overseas, working for NASA, and had no chance to
Sfly
Federal Aviation Administration "in appreciation for your dedicated service,
technical expertise, professionalism, and many outstanding contribu-
tions that further the cause of aviation safety." One has to have been a
pilot for at least 50 years to qualify for the award. The time rule is but
one of many qualifications needed to receive the honor.
"Only a handful get the award each year," Mason said.
At Sun 'n Fun, he will be working in the registration booth part of
the time and also will be selling used airplane parts in another booth.
Elsie also will work at the event. By staying in a tent, the
Masons don't miss a thing.
"We stayed in a tent at Oshkosh too," he said.
A member of the EAA, Mason has owned six planes,
including one he built himself when he lived in Maryland,
while working for the Goddard Space Flight Center. He
owned that one for 20 years. His current plane was purchased
brand new and was delivered to him in Venice five years ago.
Mason described it as a light, single-engine plane with two seats.
"It is a Citabria," he said. "Spelled backwards, that is Airbatic. I'm
learning. I never did it in the other planes."
1Mason said he is getting help from several of the other pilots at the airport
the ones who have similar planes and have been doing aerobatics for years.
He may pick up some pointers at Lakeland. Each afternoon, there will be an air
AL show featuring aerobatics pilots.
And as long as he keeps passing his annual physicals, Mason will be flying.

Sun'n Fun
The Lakeland event runs from April 21-26 at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport and
bills itself as the "Spring Break for Pilots."
Gates open at 8 a.m. daily. Exhibit buildings are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. There are
ATMs on the airport grounds.

Please see AIR, 2B

Top, these Cristen Eagles Biplanes were flown by expert aerobatics
pilots at Oshkosh. Similar aerobatics pilots will be at Lakeland.
Center, the Antilles Super Goose is a twin-engine amphibious plane
with 10 seats.
Left, Elsie and Charles Mason rarely miss an air show.
Bottom, a Boeing 747 Dreamlifter drew crowds at Oshkosh. The
plane is a Boeing 747-400 passenger plane modified to carry
dcj cargo.

Tourists and chocolates mix well in Traverse City


BY MICHAEL A.
NORTON
GUEST WRITER


Already known for its
cherries, wines and
breathtaking scenery,
this little northern Mich-
igan resort town has sud-
denly become an unlike-
ly contender in the world
of haute chocolate.
This month, French
Culinary Institute chef
Jacques Torres whose
PBS "Dessert Circus" ser-
ies helped earn him the
nickname "Mr. Choco-
late" will open his first
chocolate shop outside
NewYork City.
Where? Ah, where else
but in Traverse City? (Of
course, it doesn't hurt
that Torres fell in love
with this unspoiled re-
gion several years ago as
a guest chef in one of
Traverse City's many food
festivals, and now owns a
summer home there.)
Meanwhile, directly
across the street, chef
Phil Murray whose
legendary chocolate des-
serts contributed mighti-
ly to the success of his
former shoreside restau-
rant, Windows has just
opened Phil's on Front, a
"restaurant and choco-
late bar" aimed at pre-
cisely the same high-end
group of chocolate lov-
ers. The new eatery com-
bines an 80-seat bistro
with a chocolate lounge
where handcrafted choco-
lates are paired with
wines and spirits, includ-
ing several variations on
the ever-popular choco-
late martini.
"It's kind of bizarre
that all this is happening
here in little old Traverse
City," he conceded. "But
after all, why not?"
The chocolates are
actually made two blocks
away at Murray's other
enterprise, Chocolate
Exotica, which has been

luring chocolate lovers in
off the street since 2007
in spite of its almost
invisible location -
thanks to a wide selec-
tion of handmade truf-
fles, barks, dipped fruits
and delights like Louis
XVI cakes. (Almond and
chocolate cakes soaked
with Grand Marnier, and
layered with chocolate
mousse and truffle fill-
ing.)
And those are just the
newcomers. They join
such well-established
chocolatiers as the Choc-
olate Den whose own-
ers pride themselves on
the fact that their truffles
have only a three-week


shelf life (because they
refuse to add preserva-
tives or use premixed
ingredients) as much as
on the chewiness of their
homemade chocolate-
covered caramels and
Kilwin's of Traverse City,
one of the oldest stores in
an immensely popular
chain.
Kilwin's began in near-
by Petoskey in 1947 and
now has 50 outlets scat-
tered from Fort Collins,
Colo., to Fort Myers and
Venice in Florida.
That doesn't count the
coffee shops and bak-
eries that cluster around
Traverse City's tidy, tree-
lined downtown each


of which seems to have
its own recipe for hot
cocoa, chocolate mous-
se, or Black Forest Torte.
Nor does it take into con-
sideration the convolut-
ed question of fudge, a
confection scorned by
some chocolate purists
but deeply intertwined
with Traverse City's iden-
tity as a tourist destina-
tion. (In fact, locals habit-
ually refer to the region's
summer visitors as "fud-
gies" because of their
insatiable appetite for it.)
That's been going ever
since 1887, when an
enterprising boat builder
and sailmaker named
Henry Murdick sold his


first batch of chocolate
fudge to a group of visi-
tors on nearby Mackinac
Island. Murdick eventu-
ally founded a complex
dynasty of fudge-makers
and confectioners. (One
branch migrated to
Martha's Vineyard -
another island destina-
tion similar to Mackinac.)
Traverse City is home to
Doug Murdick, whose
two stores make 16 vari-
eties of fudge; his son
Dale has a shop in nearby
Suttons Bay. But the
region didn't begin to
carve out a national rep-
utation among high-end
chocolate fanciers until
2004, when former social
worker Mimi Wheeler
began creating intensely-
flavored artisan choco-
lates that blended power-
ful Ecuadorian cocoa
with local herbs, flowers,
fruits, nuts and honey.
Her tiny candy factory,
Grocer's Daughter Choc-
olate located in the
tiny coastal village of
Empire offers such
delicacies as lavender
and rosemary truffles,
and even a Mayan truffle
flavored with a subtle but
unmistakably warm dose
of chili.
But why should such a
remote area establish
such a strong chocolate
connection? No one
seems to know for sure.
Tourism is one possibili-
ty, but another is the fact
that Traverse City is at the
center of a fruit-growing
region known as the
"Cherry Capital of the
World" and cherries
have a long-standing
affinity for chocolate. So
do many wines, and the
area's burgeoning wine
industry has been quick
to explore the ways in
which chocolate and
wine complement each
other. At the Brys Estate
Winery, for instance, new
tastings of the vineyard's

Buddy, can you spare a tooth?


JOE GIORGIANNI
HUMOR CLOLUMNIST

I'm told that in an
adult human being there
are 32 teeth. If my math is
correct, that equates to
approximately $23,733.
At least that is what my
granddaughter figures
her teeth are worth.
How she arrived at this
number was beyond me
until she told me how
much she is getting from
the tooth fairy every time
she places one of her
pearls beneath a pillow.
I'm not sure how soci-
ety would accept a tooth-
less kid, but after hearing
her rationale, I'm begin-
ning to think that she
may be onto something,
irrespective of what soci-
ety thinks. In my own
instance, for example, I
figured out that if I pulled
all my teeth and placed
them under my pillow, I
could pay off the mort-
gage, buy a new car and
buy a couple of round-
trip tickets to Hawaii.
When I queried why
she thought she should
get so much for each of
her teeth, she responded
by telling me that she
only expects to get what
the going rate is these
days. Pressing on, I asked
what determined the
going rate. Without miss-
ing a beat, I was prompt-
ly told that the formula
that she learned in kin-
dergarten was premised
on the Trachtonberg
method of analytical in-
terpretation, and de-
pending on the value of
the euro at the time of ex-
traction, the value would
be directly proportionate
to the inflationary value
of the dollar.
I told her that that
premise was a good argu-
ment, but not wanting to
appear really stupid to
my granddaughter, I did-
n't tell her that I had no
idea what she was talking
about.
I remember being of
the age when the tooth
fairy was someone I real-
ly admired. Someone who
paid a visit to my bedroom
as I slept. Someone who
could relieve the pain and
anguish of having lost a
tooth simply by exchang-
ing a quarter for the ob-
ject beneath my pillow.
Now, however, should
a toothless kid awake to
find a mere quarter be-
neath his pillow, he
would probably report
the tooth fairy to some


authority named within
the bowels of kids' rights
legislation. And, no
doubt, there would be a
thorough investigation
as to why a child should
be punished with the
presentation of a mere
quarter.
How demeaning that
would be to today's
youth as he eagerly
marches into a class-
room filled with kids ex-
cited to know how much
booty the tooth fairy had
given in exchange for
something as important
as a tooth.
I can only imagine the
horrendous shame a kid
would feel when telling
his peers that the tooth
fairy is so cheap that he,
the kid, only got a lousy


quarter in exchange for
one of his chompers.
If I were a kid again, I
think I would try to hit up
every dentist in town for
all the extractions per-
formed in his practice. I
would then put a tooth
under my pillow every
night, hoping that my
parents wouldn't realize
that they weren't my
teeth.
If I could get away
with it, I would be one
rich kid.
I suppose there must
be things far worse than
being a kid with no teeth
and shiny gums. But on
the other hand, who
wants to be a kid again?

Rummaging around


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


For the life of me, I
can't figure out the fasci-
nation some people have
with garage sales (or yard
sales, or rummage (?)
sales, or whatever the
preferred term is).
Getting up early on a
Saturday morning to
drive around and pick
through other people's
cast-off possessions in
the hope of finding a lost
Picasso just isn't my cup
of tea. Our home is
loaded with stuff we
bought new and could
live without; why should
I buy stuff other people
have deemed no longer
worthy of being in their
homes?
That's not to say we
haven't had garage sales
of our own. There's an
annual neighborhood-
wide one we've partici-
pated in a few times,
clearing out some of the
"inventory," as it were.

something that might,
possibly, have some real
value to it.
Then the day of the

sale arrives and you raise
the garage door an hour
before the appointed
time in order to set up
shop, only to be run over
by shoppers who appar-

"23 Legal Defenses to
Foreclosure: How to Beat
the Bank"
Author: Troy Doucet
440 pages
Publication date: 2008
Publisher: Custom
Books Publishing
ISBN: 1438278195

id you know that
there are laws on
the books that
protect you and help you
defend yourself against
the prospect of a mort-
gage foreclosure? Did you
know that certain lending
law violations may win
for you punitive damages
against your mortgage
lender, including the
cancellation of your
mortgage loan?
One of the most useful
and informative books
that I have found dealing
with the subject of
mortgage foreclosures is
"23 Legal Defenses to
Foreclosure: How To Beat
The Bank", an easy to
read 'how-to' manual that
explains various defenses
you the consumer have
available to you when
dealing with a mortgage
loan foreclosure. There a
total of 53 defenses to
foreclosure that is
contained within the
book, all of which are
covered in an easy to
understand format.
The following are some
examples of the legal
defenses of foreclosure
provided in the book:
Truth in Lending Act
(TILA) violations
enabling rescission
Truth In Lending Act
(TILA) violations
enabling damages
Failure to Provide a
Correct Notice of the
Right to Rescind.
Unconscionability
Each chapter is dedi-
cated to one defense or
counter claim (a lawsuit
against your lender), and
is broken down into parts
as follows:

DEFINED:
Provides the reader a
brief explanation of what
the defense is, and the
ability to quickly under-
stand the basics of the
defense.

SPOT IT!
This gives the reader
the ability to quickly spot
whether or not the
defense applies to their
situation.


LIMITATIONS:
If the defense has
limitations or drawbacks,
it will be identified here.

POTENTIAL
RECOVERY:
What is the defense
worth? Is it a tool that
enables rescission of a
loan, or is it worth only a
few hundred dollars?
"23 Legal Defenses
to Foreclosure ..."
addresses specific federal
lending law violations
that are valid defenses to
foreclosure in every state,
including:
Truth In Lending Act
(TILA)
Home Ownership
Equity Protection Act
(HOEPA)
Real Estate Settlement
Procedures Act (RESPA)
Fair Debt Collection
Practices Act (FDCPA)
Failure to verify
assets
The book also includes
legal letters, forms,
motions, an "Answer" to a
foreclosure lawsuit, and
sample discovery to get
damaging information
directly from your
mortgage lender.
Chapters within the
book are broken into
sections that include:
A definition of the
legal defense
The damages avail-
able
A litigation strategy
Elements and factors
to prove in court
Checklist and work-
sheets
SWhether you can sue
others

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
The author is Troy
Doucet, a juris doctor
candidate in Ohio whose
previous career was in
residential loan origina-
tion for many years.
Doucet gained notoriety
within the mortgage
industry several years ago
when he called for the
elimination of all junk
fees in mortgage loans.
Since leaving the mort-
gage industry in 2006,
Doucet has pursued his
law studies, as well as
performing forensic
mortgage loan audits for
TILA and HOEPA viola-
tions. Additionally,
Doucet assists attorneys
nationwide in combating
foreclosures on behalf of
consumers.
Although this book is
an excellent reference
guide for consumers to
better understand the
foreclosure process and
the rights afforded to
them under the law, it is
not the author's intent to
suggest this book as
replacement for compe-
tent legal counsel.
"23 Legal Defenses to
Foreclosure: How to Beat
the Bank" is a must read
for anyone presently in
foreclosure or facing the
prospect of a property
foreclosure. Knowing
your rights and proper
defenses under the law
could help you keep your
home, and possibly own
your home debt free, too!
On a scale of 1 to 10, I
give this book a solid 10.

23 Legal Defenses to
Foreclosure sells for
$39.95. To order a copy of
the book "23 Legal
Defense to Foreclosure:

CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES:


CDBIA President TJ Thornberry leads

builders during this pivotal year


When
TJ Thornberry
established his
residential and commer-
cial building firm
Thornberry Development
in 2005, the local home
building market was
vastly different than
today's. And, three years
ago, when Thornberry
accepted the nomination
to become Treasurer of
the Charlotte-DeSoto BIA
- a position that
progresses to CDBIA
presidency he had no
way of predicting the
kind of challenges and
opportunities his
industry and association
would face during a most
pivotal year. Meet
Thomas "TJ" Thornberry,
2009 President of the
Charlotte-DeSoto
Building Industry
Association.

A BROADER VIEW
CDBIA volunteer
leaders have traditionally
been involved in many
aspects of community
leadership through
various governmental
affairs activities and other
organizations. But,
current economic
conditions called for an
even broader view.
CDBIA leaders moved
"economic development"
to the top of their priority
list at a leadership
meeting early in the year,
and Thornberry takes the
charge very seriously.
"The biggest challenge
facing our local economy
is diversification. The
building industry always
has, and will always be, a
major component of our
economy," Thornberry
explains. "However, from
a broad perspective, a
long-term healthy

economy must be
diversified in order to
shield the job market
from major adverse
effects of any one
industry."
Thornberry represents
CDBIA as a member of
the Board of Directors for
the Enterprise Charlotte
Economic Council, an
organization which exists
to foster economic
development in the area.
And, Thornberry has
sought opportunities to
build bridges between
the builders and other
organizations that
support business devel-
opment in the area.

NOW MORE
THAN EVER


The challenges facing
business owners and
building professionals in
the current economy
inspired Thornberry's
'rally cry' and leadership
theme for 2009: "Now
More Than Ever!"
"CDBIA membership is
more important for
industry professionals
than ever before because
there is strength in
numbers. We have a great
opportunity to make a
difference for our
industry and our
community now more
than ever before," he says.
"CDBIA members have
a voice. They can run
their businesses and have
peace of mind that their
membership in the
CDBIA gives them
representation on code
issues, legislation, grant
opportunities and any
other issues relating to
our industry."
He's quick to point out
that one of the biggest
advantages to member-
ship during tough
economic times is
networking, but admits
it's not always easy to
attend all of the meetings,
events and functions.
"At times I may have to
force myself to get
involved and attend a
meeting, even when I
don't really feel like it.
But, I have always walked
away glad I attended that
meeting and felt like I got
something out of it,
whether is was a new
contact and possible
business relationship or I
learned something new."

BUILDING ...
RELATIONSHIPS
The strength of his own
association network is
what led Thornberry to


leadership from the
beginning.
"My involvement in the
CDBIA has personally
given me a sense of
appreciation for my
fellow industry profes-
sionals. Our members
and dedicated volunteers
are the lifeblood of our
association," and
Thornberry says he's
created bonds that "will
last a lifetime."
In fact, Thornberry has
a long history of involve-
ment in the association
and considers the
association part of his
"family"... figuratively
and literally.
Thornberry's father,
Tom Thornberry,
Charlotte Plumbing, is a
long-time leader of the
association. Thornberry's
wife, Jessica, is also very
involved through the
membership of Bonded
Builders Warranty Group.
"This association has
been a part of my life
for as long as I can
remember," Thornberry
said.
A Charlotte County
native, Thornberry
graduated from Florida
State University with a
business degree and
earned his MBA from the
University of North
Florida before returning
to Port Charlotte to
establish his company.
He holds both certified
building contractor and
Florida real estate broker
licenses.

Chapter 415 of the
Florida Statues is
titled Adult
Protective Services.
However, don't let the
title fool you. The statute
is designed to protect the
elderly and disabled
from exploitation by
others. The statute even
provides the intention of
the legislature when the
law was written. Here is a
sample of that language:
"It is the intent of the
Legislature to provide for
the detection and
correction of abuse,
neglect, and exploitation
through social services
and criminal investiga-
tions and to establish a
program of protective
services for all disabled
adults or elderly persons
in need of them."
This article is written
with the elderly and
infirm person in mind
who is now in the last
remaining years of life


and has accumulated
enough wealth to live
those years out comfort-
ably; but, is the target of
a third party who has
managed to convince the
elderly person to hand
over those last few
thousand dollars by
intimidation, threat, or
undue influence.
Chapter 415 of the
Florida Statutes defines
"exploitation" as a
person who:
"1. Stands in a position
of trust and confidence
with a vulnerable adult
and knowingly, by
deception or intimida-
tion, obtains or uses, or
endeavors to obtain or
use, a vulnerable adult's
funds, assets, or property
with the intent to
temporarily or perma-
nently deprive a vulner-
able adult of the use,
benefit, or possession of
the funds, assets, or
property for the benefit
of someone other than
the vulnerable adult; or
2. Knows or should
know that the vulnerable
adult lacks the capacity
to consent, and obtains
or uses, or endeavors to
obtain or use, the
vulnerable adult's funds,
assets, or property with
the intent to temporarily
or permanently deprive
the vulnerable adult of
the use, benefit, or
possession of the funds,
assets, or property for
the benefit of someone
other than the vulner-
able adult.
(b) "Exploitation" may
include, but is not


limited to:
1. Breaches of fiduciary
relationships, such as the
misuse of a power of
attorney or the abuse of
guardianship duties,
resulting in the unautho-
rized appropriation, sale,
or transfer of property;
2. Unauthorized taking
of personal assets;
3. Misappropriation,
misuse, or transfer of
moneys belonging to a
vulnerable adult from a
personal or joint
account; or
4. Intentional or
negligent failure to
effectively use a vulner-
able adult's income and
assets for the necessities
required for that person's
support and mainte-
nance."
The statute goes on to
define exploitation as the
misuse of a power of
attorney or breach of a
fiduciary duty to the
elderly person. As you
can see the definition of
exploitation is very broad
with its focus on
protecting an elderly
person being manipu-
lated by a third person
for their personal benefit
and not the infirm
person's benefit. So how
does exploitation occur?
The general consensus
seems to be that
exploitation of an elderly
person is not a family
member, but a friend or
neighbor who hides
behind the classic shield
of being showered with
gifts from the elderly
person because the
infirm individual is


convinced that their
children want nothing to
do with them or that
their children are
conspiring to place them
into a nursing home. In
many cases this is simply
a fabricated story to
isolate the infirm and
elderly person from the
truth.
The exploiter (e.g. a
caretaker) isolates the
elderly person by not
allowing him or her to
communicate or
socialize with their
friends. When family or
friends call or visit, the
exploiter intercedes and
tells them that all is well
and typically will inter-
ject themselves into any
conversation such
friends and family
members attempt to
have with the elderly
person. The classic case
is an exploiter who
prevents the elderly
person from answering
any questions placed
before him or her by
speaking for them. In
short, the infirm person
never speaks because the
exploiter has seized
control of the conversa-
tion. In addition, when
family or friends pre-
schedule a visit, the
exploiter makes certain
that the elderly person is
out of the house or
answers the door stating
that the elderly person is
resting and that he or she
will call them (which
never occurs) upon
awakening.
This is a slow process

that takes place over an
extended period of time.
The isolation eventually
causes the elderly person
to submit to the
exploiter's propaganda
that they are all that the
elderly person has in the
form of friends.
Furthermore, the
exploiter continually
suggests that the elderly
person's family and close
friends have abandoned
them and without the
exploiter's help the
elderly person will be
placed in a nursing home
to wither away. Lacking
any outside influences to
expose the exploiters
charade, the elderly


person is eventually
convinced of the family
and friend's fabricated
conspiracy.
The legislature has
provided two means of
protecting the elderly
from such abuse and
exploitation. One is
through a civil complaint
and the other is criminal.
Chapter 415 is a civil
remedy and not criminal.
There is a separate
statute for criminal abuse
and exploitation of the
elderly, which is not
within the scope of this
article. Suffice it say, the
legislature provided a
very broad means of
bringing an exploiter to
civil court and letting the
judicial system decide if
the elderly person has


been the subject of
neglect, abuse or
exploitation. The legisla-
ture provided that the
elderly person may
recover actual and
punitive damages for
such abuse, neglect, or
exploitation. More
importantly, persons who
can bring about a civil
complaint for exploita-
tion of an elderly person
include the exploited
person, as well as that
person's guardian, or
organization acting on
behalf of the exploited
person, or by the
personal representative
of the estate of a
deceased victim without
regard to whether the
cause of death resulted
from the abuse, neglect,


or exploitation of the
infirm person.
As you can see, Chapter
415 of the Florida
Statutes provides a means
for the elderly and
disabled person to fight
back and recover their
lost funds and dignity.
If you believe that you
have been the victim of
misappropriation, abuse
or neglect of your person
or property; or, that your
parent has been victim-
ized by a third party,
please contact the
Department of Children
and Family Services or
your attorney, who can
investigate your claims
and recover misappropri-
ated funds, as well as the
last remaining dignity
that an infirm person
possesses.

Mortgage rates fall, shy of record lows


By ALAN ZIBEL
AP REAL ESTATE WRITER
WASHINGTON -
Rates on 30-year mort-
gages dipped this week
after rising a week earlier,
and remain just above
record lows.
Mortgage finance giant
Freddie Mac said
Thursday that average
rates on 30-year fixed-
rate mortgages fell to 4.82
percent this week, down
from an average of 4.87
percent last week. Rates
have been below 5
percent for five consecu-
tive weeks.
The all-time low of
4.78 percent was
recorded on the week of
April 2. Freddie Mac's


survey dates back to
1971.
Low rates have
sparked a surge in
refinancing activity, with
nearly 80 percent of new
home loan applications
coming from borrowers
seeking to refinance.
Freddie Mac's sibling
company, Fannie Mae,
refinanced $77 billion in
loans last month, nearly
double February's level
and the best month for
such activity since 2003,
when the housing market
was still surging.
Mortgage rates fell
dramatically over the
winter. They fell further
after the Federal Reserve
said last month it would


buy $1.2 trillion in
mortgage-backed securi-
ties and $300 billion in
long-term government
debt, which traditionally
influences rates on 30-
year home loans.
"The housing industry
is starting to exhibit some
positive signs," Frank
Nothaft, Freddie Mac's
chief econmist, said in a
statement but noted they
were "scarce and too
early to tell how perma-
nent."
Homebuilders are
feeling a lot more opti-
mistic that the worst
housing downturn in
decades may be finally
