Atfempt to avoid a fight sparks a fight


Plan to gather stake-
holders in search of
compromise on airport
issues is blocked.

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

When Council Member Kit
McKeon was elected in No-
vember 2008, there was con-
cern among some people he
might be too chummy with the
Venice Neighborhoods Coali-
tion and Council Member Sue
Lang, who founded the coali-


McKeon Martin


tion. Both have fought hard to
scale back municipal airport
operations.
During a recent council
meeting, however, it was VNC's
Tom Brener and Lang who
were taking shots at McKeon


for his effort to resolve contro-
versial airport issues that have
divided the community.
What set them off was Mc-
Keon's announcement at a
VNC meeting that he was try-
ing to put together a working


group of stakeholders to find
areas of consensus as the city
moves forward with a long-
range plan for the airport.
McKeon told the VNC it
might be better to pick individ-
uals from a couple of home-


owners associations to repre-
sent the public instead of
members of the coalition or
Venice Taxpayer League, which
are too controversial.
'Cat fight'
McKeon's comments didn't
sit well with Brener or Lang,
who've had great success
bringing VNC complaints
about the airport before city
council.
"I am concerned about this
for a number of reasons,"
Brener said at a recent council

Moore wants


attorney's bills paid


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Council Member John
Moore pressed this month for
City Attorney Bob Anderson to
release legal bills submitted by
three individuals who were
defendants in the Sunshine
suit.
Moore, Council Member
John Simmonds and former
airport board member Paul
Hollowell, who at one point
hired their own attorneys, sub-
mitted bills totaling around
$225,000, according to city
officials. Bills may or may not
be submitted by the other
defendants.
Anderson said it was inap-
propriate to process the bills
until the fee hearing is held in
September.
Moore said that by ordi-
nance the city must pay, and in
fact had already paid Ander-
son $90,000 and Dale Scott an
additional $135,000 in legal
fees. Both represented the city.
The only difference, Moore
said, appears to be that the
city's attorneys were being
paid incrementally, and he
held his attorney's bill until the
end of the litigation.
They provided the service,
the suit settled and city ordi-
nances state the lawyers
should be paid, Moore said.
That reading of the ordi-
nance is correct, Anderson


Moore


Anderson


said, "if there is a judgment
against the city. We aren't in
that situation whatsoever."
Anderson said another dif-
ference is the bills presented
were not authorized by the
city. They were presented by
individuals who hired attor-
neys on their own, he said, and
need to be handled appropri-
ately.
Even if the bills were review-
ed, approved and processed
for payment, city rules require
council's approval for any bill
more than $100,000, Anderson
said. Four council members
have a conflict of interest and
the other three couldn't vote
on the matter without a quo-
rum, he said.
Anderson is looking into
hiring a special master to per-
form that function, and also
contacted the Florida Ethics
Commission for an opinion on
whether Moore can vote on
the issue since he was dropped
as a defendant as part of a set-

Car has showroom finish

Furniture store on Wednesday. Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Bobby Brown and Cheryl James got the sur-
prise of their lives Wednesday when a car came
crashing through their storefront window.
Luckily, the owners of New Diggs Furniture
on Tamiami Trail in SouthVenice, their employ-
ees and a few customers weren't in that part of
the store during the lunch hour when the inci-
dent occurred. No one was injured.
Brown and a fellow employee were in the
back of the room moving furniture when they
heard the crash, looked up and saw a car com-
ing at them.
"I heard a noise, and it just kept getting loud-
er and bigger," James said. "It was quite a shock


to see a car in our show room. I guess we have a
new concept here drive-through furniture."
The elderly woman who drove the four-door
Saturn was going to have her nails done next
door at Merle Norman Cosmetic Studios.
An employee of Merle Norman raced over
after hearing the commotion. The Merle
Norman stylist stayed and assisted the driver,
eventually taking her home, James said.
The driver, who wouldn't give her name, said
she didn't know how it happened. She apolo-
gized to the Diggs owners, and joked, "I guess I
should come back for the damaged goods sale."
A Florida Highway Patrol crash report won't
be released for 10 days. FHP wouldn't give out

MCC enrollment on upward trend


BY ANNE
KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER


Manatee Community Col-
lege's Venice campus is seeing
increasing enrollment trends
that are projected to continue
over the next five years.
The news was part of a pre-
sentation Darlene Wedler-
Johnson, new provost of the
Venice campus, spoke about
during a recent board of
trustees regular meeting.
In a PowerPoint presenta-
tion, Wedler-Johnson first
noted the five-year growth pat-
tern between the 2004-05
school year and the 2008-09
school year at the Venice cam-
pus. It included a 48-percent
increase in fall semester enroll-
ment- from 1,875 students to
2,782 students and a 55 per-
cent increase in spring semes-
ter enrollment from 1,870 to
2,902 during the five-year
period. Student load hours -

hours students
- increased as


"Load hours are important
because this is what the state
uses to determine our fund-
ing," Wedler-Johnson said.
"The growth is very strong."
She said the Venice campus
now has more full-time stu-
dents than it has ever had
before.
Wedler-Johnson also broke
down the Venice campus' en-
rollment by ZIP code.
"North Port ... still has the
highest number of students


enrolled, and that trend has
continued since 2005, followed
by Venice, then Englewood,"
she said. "(Enrollment by stu-
dents from) Port Charlotte
shows the greatest growth rate
of change, a 121-percent in-
crease over the last five-year
period, which surpasses our
enrollment from Englewood.
While we don't recruit students
from Charlotte County, we do
welcome them."
'A real win'
Earlier in the meeting, Lars
Hafner, MCC's president,
announced that in three to five
years, MCC's collegewide en-
rollment for all three campus-
es Venice, Bradenton and
Lakewood Ranch was ex-
pected to reach the 15,000
mark. He said in five to 10
years, that number could jump
to 20,000 students.

County urges


wildfire vigilance


FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY

Each year thousands
of acres of land and many
homes are destroyed by
wildfires. Droughts, light-
ning, burning debris and
carelessness contribute
to the ignition of wild-
fires. Additionally, a grow-
ing number of people live
in new Florida communi-
ties, building homes in
areas that were once wild
lands.
Sarasota County Fire
Chief Brian Gorski warns
that "lack of concern and
lack of fire safety mea-
sures can be disastrous.
As wildfires often begin
unnoticed and spread
quickly, residents can
reduce risk to family,
home and property by
creating a family plan.
Decide what to do and
where to go before wild-
fires threaten."
Gorski offers the fol-
lowing tips on reducing
fire risk:
Do not throw ciga-
rette butts out the car
window or on the

Proposed curriculum


changes irk school board

BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

During its regular meeting this week, the Sarasota
County School Board responded to Superintendent
Lori White's news that the state is considering requir-
ing that all students pass algebra II and chemistry to
graduate. The Legislature is set to consider the change
this session.
"We want our students to be as competitive as pos-
sible, but it's too high," White said. "It would greatly
increase the number of students dropping out. We're
concerned, because we want those high levels of
expectations, but how will we prepare our students?"
White said there would be several impacts, espe-
cially regarding teachers and related costs.
"It's frustrating for me that we're in a state focused
on student achievement," she said, 'but we're in a
budget situation that doesn't allow us to attain these
goals."
Changing high school graduation requirements
would also affect elementary and middle school stu-
dents.
"I'm concerned about the high school students,
but it does have a ripple effect through the entire sys-
tem, because the expectations do need to filter
down," said board member Carol Todd.
"It seems the state stands in contradiction in what
they want and what they want to provide," board
member Kathy Kleinlein said. "We've already cut data
and literacy coaches and block scheduling. There will
be no data, literacy or remedial coaches to help with
these students, so we're kind of left in the lurch."
Shirley Brown, another board member, said that
state Sen. Nancy Detert, R-Venice a former county
school board member has "spoken eloquently"
against the Senate bill.
"Sen. Detert may be a lone voice up there," Brown
said. "Tallahassee has to quit micromanaging, espe-
cially at a time when they're taking so much from us."
Todd said the district can deal with the budget cuts
and still provide a quality education for Sarasota
County students.
"But we need to ask for more flexibility and not
have a noose around our necks," she said. "Maybe a
prerequisite for serving in the Legislature would be
serving on a school board to understand some of
those real-world applications."

Circus man laughed his way to the top


EDITOR'S NOTE: See the
obituary on 10A.
BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

The circus family lost
its favorite matchmaker
April 16, when Tim
Hoist, vice president of
talent and production
for circus productions of
Feld Entertainment Inc.,
parent company of the
Ringling Bros. and Bar-
num & Bailey Circus,
died in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
"Tim knew everybody,"
friend and Ringling asso-
ciate Bill Powell said. "He
really was an ambassador
for Ringling Bros. and by
interviewing and hiring
acts he really got involved
in their lives.
"He would bring acts
together to create a new
act and then they got
married and then there
was a new family.
"When people would
finish their Ringling con-
tract, he would call other
shows and find them
places to work and to
stay. He gave 100 percent
to people."
Recovering from a
severe nosebleed for
which he had been hos-
pitalized a few days earli-
er, Hoist died doing what
he loved to do, connect-
ing with the best per-
formers in the world. Still
in the hospital, he was
making phone calls and
looking forward to get-
ting back on the road,
according to longtime
friend Steve Smith.
Rock solid
Smith went to Clown


College in Venice with
Hoist in the class of 1971.
When Hoist was honored
as a Circus Celebrity by the
Ringling Museum of the
Circus in 2004, Smith was
the presenter of the Power
Behind the Scenes award.
"I learned circus by
transfusion," Holst said
that year. "I learned pas-
sion and hard work
from Charlie Smith (cir-
cus trainmaster for the
Ringling show) ... ."
Holst almost didn't
make it through Clown
College, but, as a Mormon,
he said he "could not go
home and tell my parents
that I had failed out of
Clown College."
Instead, he begged to
be allowed to stay,
promising he would
leave Ringling after grad-
uation and never bother
the circus again. Making
good on his promise,
Hoist headed home but
then got a surprise phone
call and a contract.
"He kept working his
way up the ladder," Smith
said. "He was never one
to turn down a challenge.
I came and went but our
friendship was rock solid
for 38 years. He was a big
cheese but he never
acted like it."
In the loop
Former clown Ruth
Chattuck concurred.
"He was my ringmaster,
and we were just immedi-
ate friends," she said. "The
main thing about Tim
was that he really cared
for people. 'Tim Hoist
changed my life' is the one
thing everyone said."
As she talked about


her friend, Chattuck was
boarding a plane to Sara-
sota for the celebration of
life service friends are
organizing at the Sarasota
Hyatt at 2 p.m. Sunday.
Hoist lived in Sarasota to
be close to the airport but
had been a longtime resi-
dent ofVenice.
Also coming to Sara-
sota was David Kaiser,
talent manager for Ring-
ling, who traveled with
Hoist this past year.
"He looked at an act
and saw more than the
act," Kaiser said. "He saw
the potential they had.
He saw what they could
do with a little different
prop or presentation and
he had a way of present-
ing ideas that it came out
collaborative. ... People
trusted him because they
knew he was making their
act truly great and mak-
ing our show really great."
Holst will be buried
Monday in the Garden of
the Cross area of Venice
Memorial Gardens after
a private family service.


Nearby is the grave of
longtime friend and
world-famous animal
trainer Gunther Gebel-
Williams, who died in
Venice in 2001.
"I knew Tim when I
was a little girl and he was
still a ringmaster," said
Gebel-Williams' daugh-
ter Tina Gebel-Delmoral,
aVenice resident and for-
mer Ringling performer.
"Tim and my dad were
very close."
Laughter
Hoist collected friends
and family everywhere
he went during his 37
years with the Greatest
Show on Earth. He even
learned to converse in
several languages as his
circus family grew.
According to Kaiser, it
was never about the con-
tracts but always about
the relationships and, no
matter what, laughter.
"I learned many things
from Tim. He loved what
he did and he loved his
people, and he laughed."


We can recondition them at a
fraction of the cost of replacement.

dicting six hurricanes and 12
tropical storms for Florida in
2009, few can point area resi-
dents to a safe evacuation
route if a storm makes landfall
locally.


"Whether you stay or go
during a storm partially de-
pends on which evacuation
zone you live in," said Ed Mc-
Crane Jr., Sarasota County's
emergency management chief.
For Region 6 Sarasota,
Charlotte, Manatee, Lee, Col-
lier and Hendry counties -
finding the best way out of


danger has become an annual
concern. The region's popula-
tion is about 1.5 million, ac-
cording to the Southwest
Regional Planning Council.
Yet, nothing seems to be
getting done about it in Sara-
sota and Charlotte counties.
The evacuation route from
Charlotte into Sarasota re-


mains the narrow, two-lane
road that becomes River Road
in Englewood, a road subject
to flooding. It leads into 1-75,
Southwest Florida's principal
way out of the area.
A 3-mile stretch of Win-
chester Boulevard in Charlotte
was scheduled to be complet-
ed in 2008. But no bids have


been issued, no contractors
hired. Land acquisition was
supposed to have been done
in 2006. But some landowners
are still holding out.
A new target date in 2012 is
being talked about with the
prospect of federal stimulus

meeting. "I don't under-
stand on what authority a
council member has
become a liaison for the
airport. This committee
clearly would not be rep-
resentative of the city's
broader interest. If par-
ticipation is reserved in
this way, I want to head it
off while I can.
"This would not be
herding cats. This would
be a big cat fight."
"The owners of an avi-
ation business" who
would also have a stake-
holder representative on
the consensus-building
group "are the last people
one should ask the ques-
tion: How do we foster a
compatible airport that
serves the interest of the
city as a whole?" Brener
said.
"I'd like to point out
several months ago in
regards to assigning one
particular council mem-
ber to the airport, council
rejected that idea," Lang
said. "I don't think any
one council member
should be assigned over
another to the airport.
Lang took offense at
comments by Council
Member John Simmonds,
former ex officio member
of the now defunct Air-
port Advisory Board, who
gave McKeon a vote of
confidence by saying he
liked the idea.
"If the stakeholders
can't get his approval,
then they won't get my
vote," Simmonds said.
"They should rethink
their positions."
"I object to any state-
ment that members of
the public should listen
to that council member
and if they don't, then
their opinions aren't wel-
come," Lang said.
It's important "that we
don't cherry-pick some
token person who is sup-
posed to be representa-
tive of a particular seg-
ment of our community.
I think that would be
going in a negative direc-
tion."
Compromise
needed
City Manager Isaac
Turner accepted blame
for the idea and said it
had been put on hold.
"We did want to make
sure neighborhood groups
were involved," Turner
said. "The distinctive dif-
ference, and something I
had a concern about, was
not to have participants
who felt they had to fight
it out. That it wasn't
(going to be) a duke-it-
out situation. That may
have been an incorrect
call. I take responsibility
for that. It was more an
idea to come up with
solutions that would
help out if that was pos-
sible."
McKeon defended his
actions.
"I support and am
complying with council's
directive not to designate
a council person to the
airport," he said. "I am in
no way representing my-
self as (that)."
With his aviation back-
ground, McKeon said, he
offered his services to
Airport Director Fred
Watts, Assistant City Man-
ager Mary Holcombe and
DY Consultants, if they
felt that was appropriate.
"I am one who thinks
the airport is an asset to
the community," McKe-
on said. "The issues are
emotional and it is in the
city's interest to find
common ground to keep
the airport functional
and viable. That is my
whole purpose."


"It appears they want
to have no compromise.
Quite frankly we need to
have some compromise
to move forward."
Mayor Ed Martin sid-
ed with Brener and Lang.
If McKeon is con-
cerned that people from
the neighborhood coali-
tion or taxpayer league
would be too controver-


sial, "I think we ought to
probably rethink that
position because I think
we should balance the
interest of neighborhood
groups." Martin said. "I
wouldn't turn down any
group that said they
would like to be part of
that."

the driver's name.
Lucky
The errant auto received little
damage, landing within inches of a
cement column. Glass was strewn
inside the store and some furni-
ture was damaged.
One observer said she was im-
pressed with the Indian haw-
thorne bushes out front that man-


aged to escape any damage de-
spite being driven over.
"I think she was airborne when
she hit the concrete bumper (in the
parking space) and flew over the
bushes," James said. "It was quite a
bit of creative driving."
"Luckily, she didn't hit the con-
crete wall on either side, and no one
was hurt. There was a lot of luck in
the way it ended. We are very fortu-
nate actually. Things can be
replaced."


Passersby and nearby store em-
ployees rushed to the scene to help,
James said.
"It became quite a point of inter-
est in Venice for awhile," she said.
"They came together and helped
clean up the glass, secure the build-
ing, offered to get us lunch ... any-
thing we needed. They were just
very very helpful.
"It says a lot about howpeople can
be supportive in this community."

tlement agreement.
At odds
Paying early would increase the
city's liability, Anderson said.
"I am telling you in no uncer-
tain terms," said Anderson, "if you
just pay the three submittals ...
prior to the September hearing,
then the amount that is going to be
awarded to the plaintiffs is going to
increase dramatically, and I don't
see how that is in the city's best
interest."
Moore disagreed with An-
derson's reading of the ordinance,
and the assertion that paying the
bills prior to the final hearing
would influence the final amount.
He pushed for council to simply
direct the bills to be paid since it
appeared Anderson already re-
viewed the bills and was paid for
that service.
"The city does have to provide
this type of protection," Moore
said. "If it isn't doing that, it is re-
neging on its own ordinance. We're
not going to wait around for Mr.
Anderson to come up with some
convoluted solution. We don't
need a vote. We don't need a spe-
cial master.
"It's incredible to me the mes-
sage we are sending to city
employees and board members: If
you are sued and exonerated you
aren't going to get your attorney
fees (reimbursed) unless city


council votes on it. I don't think
anybody would work for the city or
sit on a board under those circum-
stances."
"I wish this was as simple as you
portrayed it to be," said Anderson.
"I am at odds with two of my
employers. The easiest thing
would be to pay them whatever
they ask for. That would keep me
in good graces with council and
probably do a lot for job security,
but I can't do that and do my job."
Anderson asked for, and was
granted, a shade (closed, out-of
the Sunshine) meeting on the
Sunshine suit at the next regularly
scheduled council meeting.

"We're faced with this
incredible loss of credi-
bility and loss of funds."
-Venice Mayor
Ed Martin

Mayor Ed Martin called on
council to remain united as the
city moves forward with the settle-
ment.
"We're faced with this incredible
loss of credibility and loss of
funds," he said. "This is a one-way
street; we lose if we pay the legal
fees, and we lose if we lose. It
seems this is a highly ineffective
law that has allowed this to take
place."
"We have been under enor-


mous stress. We are tired and
unhappy with what we have been
put through and we regret it. I
don't want us to turn against each
other in this situation. We need to
support our staff and each other.
"Of course, there are differences
of opinion and in looking at thing
in different ways. I just hope we
understand everyone trying to do
what he or she thinks is right."
Fees
Anderson announced he hired
Steve Chase, of the Able Band law
firm, as the city's expert to argue
the awarding of attorneys fees in
the case. Plaintiff Anthony Lor-
enzo's attorney, Andrea Mogensen,
also got outside help, hiring James
Green from Palm Beach.
Mogensen won't be able to
recoup Green's fees. The city, how-
ever, will be required to pay Able
Band.
Anderson said he believes the
plaintiffs will seek somewhere in
the neighborhood of $800,000 and
may or may not request a multipli-
er at the discretion of the judge.
Attorneys for the defendants could
submit somewhere in the neigh-
borhood of $600,000 or more,
bringing the cost of the suit to well
more than $1 million.
Both Moore and Simmonds
said their attorneys reduced their
fees to match those charged by city
attorneys.

"If the trend over the
last five years continues
at a similar rate, in spring
2014, we will have 4,221

she said. "And these num-
bers don't take into ac-
count any new programs,
which may attract a
greater number of stu-
dents.
"I think this data is
really amazing. It's won-
derful to see where we

a remarkable period of
expansion of the Venice

MCC will begin offer-
ing a four-year bachelor

Classes first will be offer-
ed at the Venice campus.
Because of the school's
changing status, the board
voted to change MCC's
name to State College of
Florida, Manatee and
Sarasota counties, effective
July 1. The Florida Senate
OK'd the change Friday; it
goes on to the House.
Hafner said he already
has received letters from
community leaders ask-
ing MCC to offer other
four-year degrees in the
future. He hopes the con-
tinued expansion of the
school's offerings will
give area students addi-
tional opportunities -
and help them stay in the
area, thus increasing lo-
cal jobs and economic
growth.

OUR VIEW



Old meds and toilets should never meet


How hard can it be to get rid of
old prescription drugs?
Everyone agrees that it's bet-
ter to get rid of the stuff period -
than to leave it sitting in the medicine
cabinet.
As pointed out in a recent story by
staff writer Dana Sanchez, there is
always a concern about accidental
overdoses, especially among the el-
derly. Sarasota County was at the top
of all counties in the state in 2007
when it came to accidental overdoses
among the older population.
Then there's the issue of pill theft,
especially among the teenage popu-
lation. A national drug prevention
specialist visiting Charlotte County
recently advised parents that they
should be aware of all prescription
drugs in their medicine cabinet, even
to the pill, just to be safe. "Pharma


parties," mixing alcohol and prescrip-
tion drugs, have become popular,
unfortunately.
Clearly, there's no good reason to
hang on to prescription drugs you no
longer need.
But what to do?
Barbara Kula, Charlotte County's
solid waste manager, has been in the
business for two decades. She said
that county workers used to tell peo-
ple to flush expired medications.
Better that than leaving them around.
Flushing was the obvious way to keep
medicine from being used when it
shouldn't, or falling into the wrong
hands.
As it turns out, that's a poor option.
In the past decade, studies have
pointed to the possible damage that
can be inflicted on wildlife when
pharmaceutical compounds make


their way into the waterways.
And they do.
The University of Florida and Mote
Marine Laboratory in Sarasota have
been studying the effects of pharma-
ceutical pollutants on bull sharks in
the Caloosahatchee River near Fort
Myers. The fear is that the drugs may
hinder the sharks' ability to reproduce.
Ten years ago bureaucrats coined
the abbreviation PPCP for pharma-
ceuticals and personal care products,
and they are campaigning to keep
them out of the environment. It's
important that people not allow old
medicine to make its way into septic
systems, where it can leach into
groundwater, or public sewage sys-
tems, which can't remove all active
compounds.
Some pharmacies will accept ex-
pired medications in a pinch, the


story noted, but they are not equip-
ped for larger-scale collection, and
they don't encourage it. Sarasota
County takes old medicines at haz-
ardous waste collection sites, which is
an excellent option. But a special trip
to the landfill is a lot to expect, said
Monica Bramble, North Port's solid
waste manager.
The simplest thing to do, Kula said,
is to remove the labels, wrap your old
medicine containers in newspaper
and put them in your kitchen trash
bag. That will ensure privacy and get
the old drugs out of the house safely.
If you want to be extra careful, the
state Department of Environmental
Protection has a seven-step proce-
dure for disposal. The point is: Do not
flush medicine down the drain.
"Do not, do not, do not," Bramble
said, emphatically.


Can't tell the players

without a program


MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


Labeling ourselves po-
litically has become quite
complicated of late.
It used to be so simple:
One was either a Demo-
crat or a Republican.
Democrats were consid-
ered the party of the "lit-
tle man" who wanted and
needed more govern-
ment intervention; Re-
publicans were consid-
ered "capitalists" who
wanted smaller govern-
ment and the opportuni-
ty to hold on to the
money they earned. I
guess Independents and
Libertarians just can't
quite decide.
We have gone through
the "New Deal" and the
"New Frontier." President
Obama is now talking
about the "New Foun-
dation," which sounds
like an undergarment.
Perhaps you remem-
ber awhile back when the
media made a great joke
over President George
Bush's rather inept defin-
ition of "sovereignty." Sov-
ereignty is a nebulous
term, "like sound and
fury, signifying nothing."
Hey there, you can't crash
your planes into the twin
towers, we are a sover-
eign nation.
Someone said to me
that it was "illegal" for the
United States to send its
troops into Iraq because
it is a sovereign nation.
Hmm.
I recently read that
there are five truths re-
garding the subject: Our
liberty is from God not
the government; our sov-
ereignty is in our souls,
not the soil; our security
is through strength, not
surrender; our prosperity
is from the private sector,
not the public sector; our
truths are self-evident,
not relative.
"Transnationalism" is
another term that is
being kicked around a
great deal. President
Obama has nominated
Howard Koh, an avowed
transnationalist, to be the
guy who decides what's
legal and what's not.
We are the only nation
with a Constitution that
governs our laws.
The Supreme Court
rules on constitutional


law. The world is moving
into transnationalism,
and if we go there too,
our Constitution will be
useless and we will
become subservient to
international decision
making. The United
Nations will become the
primary and final word
on how we are ruled.
Forget the Constitution.
Hillary Clinton said
that she is a "modern
progressive." Is that the
"new" socialist in the vil-
lage?
There is an anti-Amer-
ican credo that abhors
American political and
governmental institu-
tions and this nation's
capitalist economy. That
value system is at war
with the Judeo-Christian
tradition upon which this
country was founded.
Progressives feel that it
is unfair that some have
so much and others little
by comparison.
President Obama has
already expressed the
wish to get private indus-
try out of our health sys-
tem.
In other words, folks,
they can call it "universal
health care," but it is still
"socialized medicine."
They can call it "protect-
ing women's rights," but
it is still abortion. They
can call it being humane,
but giving benefits to ille-
gal aliens is a slap in the
face of legal citizens.
Dictators have chip-
ped away at their nations'
religious roots for years.
Russian writer Alexander
Solzhenitsyn wrote:
"Those who would un-
dermine America and
turn it into an egalitarian
utopia know they have to
first chip away at the faith
of Americans, at their
very spiritual founda-
tions. They will try to
convince people to re-
place their faith in God
with faceless bureaucrats
and government give-
aways."
The separation of
church and state in our
Constitution is not there
to protect Americans
from religion; it is there to
protect Americans from
the government.
William O. Douglas,
one of the most liberal
justices ever to sit on the
Supreme Court, wrote
that "we are a religious
people whose institu-
tions presuppose a su-
preme being."

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Barritt deserves plaque, not park


Editor:
There is a move afoot to rename Tramonto Vista
Park to Maxine Barritt Park. Here's a short history.
When the sewer plant was decommissioned, an
idea was floated to put a conference center in its
place. Word got out before it ever got to council. This
triggered Maxine to start a petition drive to stop it. In
truth, a center would never have been built as the
land had already been designated as part of South
Brohard Beach.
At the same time the city was looking at how to
fund beach renourishment, pier repairs and remodel-
ing of the community center. I was pushing to take
advantage of low bond rates to fund the projects at
one time.
To make a bond cost-effective we needed to bor-
row $10 million. The then-city manager and I figured
that adding Tramonto Vista would make the mini-
mum for the bond.
It was assumed the land would cost $2 million; we
got it for about $67,000. The stated intention all along
was to build a pavilion when funds came available,
which they did due to the low land price.
Maxine supported the bond issue and the pavilion.
Neither of us supported a bandshell; it was never
mentioned or intended at the time of the referendum.
Was Maxine involved in the park discussion? Yes.
More so than several others in the community? No.
The proper place to honor Maxine is with a bronze
plaque in the City Hall atrium with Finn Caspersen
and Geri Weinberg.

Just one tiny
detail missing
Editor:
Recently the chair of a
major pet food company
summoned his national
sales force to corporate
headquarters to deter-
mine why sales of their
new cat food, Our Pride,
were so miserable.
"I can't understand it,"
he said. "We have the
finest cuts of cod, halibut
and other fish, the great-
est packaging, the best
promotion and a proven
sales team. What's the


problem?"
Fred Wilson, a sales-
man from Duluth spoke
up: "Sir, the problem is
the damn cats won't eat
it!"
A small group of Casey
Key residents interested
in privatization must
have gone to the same
culinary school as those
chefs. After they concoct-
ed the idea, things went
into overdrive. The com-
mittee to incorporate
was formed, more than
$70,000 was raised, Pro-
fessor Hank Fishkind


produced a feasibility
report and a lobbyist and
an attorney from Talla-
hassee joined the team
and created a bill of fare
- HB 1225 all without
any input from the resi-
dents.
As word spread, there
was an outpouring against
incorporation. Claims and
counterclaims dominated
the cocktail parties, town
hall meetings and e-
mails. Meanwhile, Casey
Key, once a refuge of
peace and quiet, was any-
thing but. People sensed
something fishy in Fish-
kind's conclusions, and
that was the halibut.
Sales of Our Pride con-
tinued to decline, a few
sales going to a select
group of overfed cats.
The pet food company
pulled the product from
store shelves and formed
a committee to incorpo-
rate both strict recipe
oversight and reliable
field-testing techniques.

Government is
the problem
Editor:
The uninformed, large-
ly political letter regard-
ing the "Drill here, Drill
now, Save money" bump-
er sticker on my car, and
his statement that oil
wells should be drilled in
the Great Lakes off the
Michigan coast but not
in (his) precious Gulf,
misses the whole point of
my statement.
Technology can and
has drilled safely and
successfully under the
Great Lakes off Canada's
Lake Erie for more than


40 years. This country
has been dithering and
talking about energy
security for at least that
amount of time and
because of scaremon-
gers, we are still in the
same position now as we
were then.
This country is spend-
ing its wealth, sending it
to countries that hold our
independence in their
hands and are not neces-
sarily all that friendly to
us. We talk about green,
but the government is in
the way. Get out of the
way, Washington, and let
the free market and com-
petition find the way.
People given the free
choice will buy the best,
most economical prod-
uct from the company
that provides it. It is
called competition and
survival of the fittest.
Given the choice, only
a fool would purchase an
inferior product when
something better is avail-
able. The same goes for
industry.

Low vision certainly
takes time to adjust to.
Friends have been very
kind to me as we both get
more used to one anoth-
er.
Let me start with a
very sweet story.
Bessie Kofsky is known
countywide for her vol-
unteer devotion in caring
for the Shamrock Park
Nature Center in South
Venice. She walks the
park trails twice a day,
and with me three times
a week for my exercise
routine.
With my low vision,
she has become a valu-
able crossing guard by
guiding me when we are
near other walkers and
bicyclists. I take her arm
just as we were taught;
she tells me what is com-
ing in front of us and in
back of us in plenty of
time to prevent me from
a possible collision.
If you happened to
notice us walking along
the Venetian Waterway
Park, you will smile to see
Bessie with her walking
cane, just 5 feet tall,
weighing 97 pounds at
age 86, guiding a 5 foot 9
inch, 172 pound, 75-
year-old Ellen so Ellen
won't fall or get in any-


one's way. She also cor-
dially waves her cane to
the boaters going by and
picks up loose trash that
"dumb slobs" throw
along the trail.
Blind people, and peo-
ple who are visually im-
paired, suffer from feel-
ings of frustration or
guilt. We learn tech-
niques to overcome the
emotions of asking oth-
ers for assistance. How-
ever, once we tell people
of our limitations, it is
much easier to overcome
the plight.
Here are a few sugges-
tions you might want to
jot down:
If you address me by
my name and tell me
yours, I will know you are
speaking to me.
When you think I
need help, ask me first. If
help is requested, I can
usually tell you what I
need or how we can do it
together.
If you want to shake
my hand, tell me so that I
can respond to your ges-
ture.
Let me do as much as
I can, even if it takes me
longer.
You can use conver-
sational words like "look"
or "see." I do all the time.
I was extremely pleas-
ed to read that Fran Va-
lencic is home again and
in due time will be writ-
ing her witty and won-
derful articles for the
Gondolier Sun. Somehow
I feel that she and I now
share a secret.

tative to the Florida

I thought that was their job


Good turn. In reply to the person who wrote in
about having a sour taste in her mouth because our
police officers were enforcing the law against people
parking in no parking zones, here's a suggestion from
a longtime Florida resident: Put your head between
your legs and do somersaults until you pass out.
Personally, my wife and I like it that our police enforce
the law.


Blocked. My family
and I go to Nokomis Vil-
lage Shoppes every now
and then, and it's a com-
mon sight to see the
Nokomis fire truck sitting
in the emergency lane
that goes between Sub-
way and the cafe. They


just park their truck there,
go inside Subway and eat.
Yesterday, there must
have been 15 people in
Subway and their fire
vehicle was jamming up
the parking lot. If they're
going to use our money to
go and sit and eat some-

right women working
earn 22 percent less than

Median earnings for

Pay equity is a growing

States around the coun-

equity legislation and
women continue to rec-
ognize the importance of
this legislation. Pay in-
equity penalizes families
especially during times
of economic hardship so
we must address it as
part of any economic
stimulus.
Legislation that strength-

first and worst during
economic downturns

an immediate "equity"

Tea Party crossed



all boundaries

BY SHARON SMITH
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN


"It's time to tear up our Silent Majority membership
cards" was the theme of keynote speaker Larry
McLendon at the Venice Tea Party held April 15.
The nearly 1,000 protesters who attended this rally at
the Gazebo in Centennial Park enthusiastically agreed.
Local organizer Patricia Rule emphasized that this
local Tea Party was strictly a grassroots event and a
totally volunteer effort. There was no outside direction
from any organization; everyone from Jim Menzer,
who delivered the invocation, to the keynote speaker
was a volunteer.
The crowd contained adults of all ages, most of
whom had never attended a protest in their life. These
protesters carried signs expressing various concerns,
but most seem to agree on one point: The current
administration and Congress are leading the country
in the wrong direction.
The Venice rally was peaceful, patriotic and spirited.
Attendees sang patriotic songs such as "God Bless
America," waved flags and frequently chanted "U.S.A."
The numerous veterans who attended were recog-
nized with applause and cheers. Particularly touching
were some of the veterans of World War II who needed
assistance walking to the stage after being called up to
lead the Pledge of Allegiance.
Although Rule contacted all area media outlets, only
the Venice Gondolier Sun and channel 7 Sarasota cov-
ered the event. The staff reporter for the Gondolier Sun
estimated 500 attendees while ABC channel 7 put the
number closer to 1,000. Whatever the number, it was a
neat group; volunteers assigned to clean up couldn't
find a single piece of litter.
Toward the end of the Tea Party, postcards to mail to
senators and representatives were distributed with con-
tact lists. However, there weren't enough to go around
because Rule was prepared for only 300 participants.

MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


Confused about

proposed saltwater

fishing licenses ?

Maybe it's just me, but there
seem to be many questions
about the proposed new saltwa-
ter fishing license. My biggest
complaint is how much Florida
may be charging, as $17 is too
much. Of all of the East Coast
states, we would be the highest.
It doesn't make any sense to me.
I understand why the coastal
states need to do this. It's very
simple. If the states don't do it,
then the federal government will
do it and the money would go to
the feds instead of to the individ-
ual states. The reason for the fed-
eral pressure is they need the
money to get more accurate
studies of stressed fish stocks.
Perhaps this just means
more recreational fishermen
would be surveyed about their
catches. I understand this to be
random surveys. Do you really
think everyone tells the truth?
We're fishermen what do
you expect?
Let's talk about our town of
Venice. Most of the shoreline,
pier, jetty and bridge fishing is
done by either exempt seniors or
out-of-state fishermen. I believe
that the high license fee will
encourage many fishermen
either not to fish or to fish and
skip the license.
I visited our jetty the other
day and they were catching a few
mackerel, mangrove snappers,
small grouper, pompano and
ladyfish.
We'll talk again next week.

BOYS WEIGHTLIFTING



Bills places 6th at state meet


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice sophomore Parker
Bills equaled his personal best
with a 450 pound total to
place sixth in the Class 2A
state meet in the 129-pound
weight class on Friday after-
noon at River Ridge High in
New Port Richey.


Bills lifted 250 pounds in
the bench press and 200
pounds in the clean and jerk.
He was actually tied with
another lifter but lost by
weight 0.2 pounds more.
New Smyrna Beach's
Hussain Butt won with a 490
total.
Bills' bench press was tied
with two other lifters for most


in the weight class.
Venice picked up a point in
the team competition with
Bills' finish.
"If he stays the same weight
and gets stronger he has a
chance to win it back-to-
back," said Venice coach John
Peacock.
In the 238 pound weight
class, senior Gerald Oriol set a


personal record with a 600
pound total including 350
pounds in the bench press
and personal-best 250 pounds
in the clean and jerk.
He was tied with another
lifter but was heavier by 0.6
pounds.
Ponte Vedra Beach Nease's
Dylan March won the title
with a 715 pound total.


Venice captures sixth district in row


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


When it counted most,
Venice came through with its
best game of the season.
The second-seeded Lady
Indians' got an RBI single by
sophomore Mel Dembinski
and a three-hit shutout from
senior Stephanie Sullivan to
edge top-seeded Manatee, 1-0,
to capture the Class 5A-District
12 championship on Friday
night at Lakewood Ranch High.
Venice (19-7-1) hosts District
11 runner-up Osceola at 7 p.m.,
April 28 in the Class 5A-Region 3
quarterfinals.
It isVenice's sixth straight dis-
trict title.
"We've been reminded of it
every practice," Mel Dembinski
said about the string of district
titles. "That was our one goal
and now we have a bigger goal
of making it back to states. It
gives us a lot of confidence.
"Isn't that something,"
Venice coach Larry Sandburg
said about the district titles. "It's
been such an up-and-down
season. We played games where
we looked like we shouldn't be
on the same field with some of
these teams. Then we play a
game like tonight. It helps to
have 13 strikeouts."
'All day at school all we've
been hearing is Venice has
always won a district champi-
onship and a long time since
we've lost," Sullivan said. "We
said, OK we know.'"
On the mound, Sullivan (17-
3), the reigning Class 5A Player
of the Year, was dominant and
looked like she did last year

Toler was tagged out on the play and Venice pulled out a 2-1 win in
eight innings.


when she went 23-1 in the
Venice's Class 5A state runner-
up season.
"We mostly threw rise balls,"
Sullivan said. "These last two
games I thinkI've been focusing
more and thinking I have to do
this. I'm finally getting back to
my normal from last year."
The win halts a two-game
losing streak to the Lady'Canes,
who beat Venice 7-3 and 3-0
during the regular season.
"We looked at this was the
game that really matters,"
Sullivan said. "This is one of the
biggest wins we've had."
Sullivan, who allowed two
hits to begin the game on a sin-
gle byAli Geiger and bunt single
by Shannon Brockett, showed
her mental toughness and set


the tone for the rest of the game
by striking out the next three
batters.
Sullivan only gave up one
more hit in the third inning to
Manatee (23-4) and finished
with 13 strikeouts.
"That is the best she's thrown
all year," Sullivan said. "These
last two games she has really
thrown well."
In their last meeting against
unbeaten Caroline Curran (12-
1), the Manatee left-hander
pitched a six-hit shutout with
13 strikeouts. This time Venice
managed just four hits but one
timely one.
With one out in sixth inning,
Kelly Ott hit a slow grounder to
shortstop, who bobbled it just
enough to allow the speedy Ott


to reach first base safely.
Chelsea Zgrabik walked setting
the table for Mel Dembinski.
On a 1-0 count, Mel
Dembinski pounded the ball
off the right-field fence for a
double scoring Ott with the
only run.
"I wasn't too concerned
about having to hit off of her
because I've know her through
years through travel ball. Earlier
this season I've been hitting off
her," said Mel Dembinski, who
entered the game 3-for-5 with a
home run against Curran. "Ijust
did my thing and hit the ball. It
was more outside than down
the middle."
"We knew she was going to
throw outside," Sandburg said
about Curran. "We told them
we have to go with it and not
pull it."

Archer, Tresch lead Indians in district meet


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Senior Dri Archer and sophomore
Alyssa Tresch stole the show for Venice
at the Class 4A-District 7 track and field
meet on Thursday at North Port High.
Archer captured three events,
including both sprint races, as the
Indians took the runner-up trophy with
129 points. Riverview won with 141
points.
Tresch grabbed first place in two
races and placed in the top four in the
other race as the Lady Indians were in
fourth place with 90 points, just six
points behind third-place Riverview.
North Port won the team title over
Sarasota, 167-160.
The top four finishers in each event
qualified for the Class 4A-Region 4
meet scheduled for Thursday, April 30,
at Tampa Gaither High.
Archer is among 13 regional quali-
fiers for the Indians in nine events
while Tresch paces a girls contingent
of 12 regional qualifiers in seven
events.
"A great day for Venice High school
track," Venice boys coach Larry
Shannon said. "I knew it was going to
be close for the district champi-
onship. We fell short in a couple of
areas where we had to perform well
in. Looks like it's going to cost us the
championship."
"Overall I am pleased," Venice girls
coach Brenda Clark said. "We did all
right. I was disappointed in a couple of
things but that is track."
The Venice boys took first place in six
events including the 4x800 and 4x100
relays.
Archer paced the Indians with a
come-from-behind win in the 100-
meter dash over Cape Coral's Jeremy
Davis. Archer finished with a time of
10.81 seconds while Davis was in 11.04.
"The blocks slipped and caught him
40-50 meters into it," said Archer, who

Venice's Ben Steele grimaces as he pre-
pares to throw the shot put in the Class
4A-District 7 track and field meet on

inches.

took second at district last year.
Archer had to do some catching up
in the last leg of the 4x100 relay to edge
Cape Coral at the finish line in 42.38
seconds. Other members of the relay
were Trey Burton, Max Brandow and
Robert Fordham.
"Wow, that time on this surface and
one bad handoff on the last one,"
Shannon said. "We are excited about
the possibilities of those guys contend-
ing for a regional championship and
moving on to states."
Archer won the 200-meter dash in
22.26 seconds.
"I'm glad it was my last race," Archer
said. "I just got ahead of everybody and
tried to coast out."
Fordham also qualified for regionals
in two other events by taking third in
the 100- and 200-meter dashes.
Venice also took first place in the
pole vault as senior Dan Medrano
cleared 13-feet, 6 inches on his second
attempt.
Medrano, who missed on his first
attempt at 13 feet before clearing, said
he is close to getting 14 feet.
"It's just the pole. I needed a bigger
pole," said Medrano, who took second
last year. "North Port just gave me a 15-


foot pole so I'm expecting great things."
"He's peaking at the right time,"
Shannon said about Medrano. "He's
such a hard-working kid. He's been
working at it for four years and working
hard at it. He has great focus."
Venice senior Ben Steele won the
shot put by more than three feet over
his nearest competitor with a throw of
47-feet, 10.5 inches.
Venice grabbed first place in the
4x800 relay with the team of Naphatara
Teerasitikul, Brian White, David
Enander and Dillon Boyd.
Other regional qualifiers were
Brandow, who took second in the long
jump; Sean Ruehr and Kyle Gilbert,
who were fourth in the discus and shot
put, and Boyd, who was second in the
800-meter run.
In the girls, Tresch placed first in
the 400-meter dash with a time of 1
minute, 1.87 seconds, which was
ahead of her teammate Amberose
Courville.
"I was getting a little tired but I just
kept going," said Tresch, who set a per-
sonal best in the 400 preliminaries in
1:01.26.
Tresch anchored the 4x800 relay
team of Courville, Rebekka Schenk and
Maggie Gokey Venice trailed the entire
race until Tresch passed the North Port
runner in the final 20 yards and cross
the line in 4:20.29.
Tresch also took fourth in the 200-


meter dash.
"I just give my glory to God because
he gave me a gift," said Tresch, who is
competing in track for this year for the
first time.
"She's been my little golden egg so to
speak," Clark said. "She is a delight. She
wants to learn. She's just been out-
standing. She just gives it everything
she has and strives to get better each
time."
Venice freshman Kelly White won
the 800-meter run with her patented
kick over the final 150 meters.
White was passed by North Port's
Fallon Mayer but quickly retook the
lead around the final corner and
cruised to the win in 2:31.21.
Also qualifying for regionals for the
Lady Indians were Heather Williams
and Nicole Swanson, who were second
and fourth in the pole vault, and
Breanna Hafeli, who took second in the
discus.
Venice's 4x100 relay team of Brittany
Johnson, Kyela Faett, Jordan Cline and
Loretta Johnson was third in 53.88 sec-
onds.
"The 4X100 relay was my delight of
the day," Clark said. "We have been
having trouble with handoffs for the
last three weeks. They couldnt have
been better today. It was just out-
standing."

After 10 innings, Indians slip to Braden River in season finale


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Nothing like a three and one-half
hour, 10-inning game to close out the
regular season.
This is what Venice endured against
Braden River on Wednesday night dur-
ing Senior and Little League Night at
Venice High.
Braden River scored five runs in the
top of the 10th inning en route to a 7-3
win in a game that ended at 11:05 p.m.
Venice forced extra innings by scor-
ing a run in the bottom of the seventh
inning. Kevin Guthrie walked and
moved to second base on a sacrifice
bunt by Alec Stiver. After a strikeout,
RexIngerick, who was 2-for-3 including
a double, was hit by a pitch. Joe lorio hit
a ball to the pitcher, who threw to sec-
ond base trying for the force out.
Ingerick beat the throw and everyone
was safe. Pinch-runner Andy Ellingsen
raced home with the tying run by tag-
ging the home as the ball went off the
catcher's glove.
The Indians (9-16) had plenty of
base runners and chances to score but
six runners thrown out on bases -
from missed signs to poor base run-
ning.
Venice left 11 men on base includ-
ing the bases loaded in the bottom of

the ninth inning with one out.
However, two fly outs ended the
inning.
The blunders ruined Brent Krauss'
pitching performance as the junior
held the Pirates (21-2) in check over the
first five innings only giving up two hits
and one run in the first inning on an
infield single. He finished with five
strikeouts.
The 10th inning had all the drama.
First, it was held up in the middle as
Venice junior Matt Tellor was taken out

ing out from heat stroke. Tellor is doing
OK after getting released from the hos-
pital later in the night.
The inning started with an error on a
missed fly ball. After a bunt single and
fielder's choice loaded the bases, a sin-
gle scored the go-ahead run. With one
out, Michael Petrilla doubled over the
left fielder's head to clear the bases.
Another double and sacrifice fly ended
the scoring.
Venice added a run in the 10th on a
RBI single by Ryan Golembeski.
The Indians, who trailed 1-0 after


four innings, tied it in the fifth inning
on a sacrifice fly by Austin Hill.
Venice held Braden River to just
three hits through seven innings as
Krauss, Mike Geers and Andy Speth did
the pitching.

Venice 2, Lakewood Ranch 1, 8 innings
Venice's Kelly Ott wanted to do something spe-
cial to fit in with the team.
The freshman did as she delivered a walk-off RBI
single in the bottom of the eighth inning as the
Lady Indians edged Lakewood Ranch, 2-1, on
Wednesday afternoon in the Class 5A-District 12
semifinals at Lakewood Ranch High.
The win put Venice in the championship game
and secured a spot in the regional quarterfinals
next week.
In the eighth inning, Venice's Courtney
Markusson reached base as the centerfielder
dropped a fly ball, which was right in her glove.
Emily Parsons followed with a bunt which was
fielded by third base. The throw pulled the second
baseman off the base to put runners at first and
second. Amber Yonker followed with a sacrifice
bunt to move pinch-runner Michelle Speth to third
base and Parsons to second base.
Ott then lined a 1-0 pitch into left-center field to
score Speth with the winning run.
"I was going up to bat thinking this is my chance
to actually shine and do something for the team
and actually prove myself to the team," Ott said. "I
was hoping to just get on base but that hit was
timely and it worked out perfect. I was so excited."
"She's not a freshman anymore," Venice coach
Larry Sandburg said. "The first season is over. We
are into the second season. First of all she hustles
her butt off. In centerfield she has been a defensive
gem for us.
The Lady Mustangs (20-8) scored in the first
inning. Corey Hanewich was hit by a pitch. A sacri-
fice bunt moved her to second base and the speedy
senior raced to third base. She scored on an errant


throw past third base. Rachel Slowik then tripled.
Venice got out of the jam on a double play. Dana
Hutchins popped out to Venice catcher Chelsea
Zgrabik on a diving play behind home plate then
threw to third base to complete the double play.
Venice (18-7-1) tied it in the fifth inning against
Lakewood Ranch's Brittany Kilduff. With one out,
Stephanie Sullivan lined a double into left field.
After a groundout, Parsons, who had two hits, sin-
gled to score Sullivan with the tying run.
Venice pitcher Sullivan (16-3) limited the Lady
Mustangs (20-8) to six hits and finished with nine
strikeouts and no walks. In fact, she closed out the
eighth inning with three straight strikeouts.
In the sixth inning, Venice left fielder Kaytea
Hatfield made a nice catch near the fence down the
left-field line then center fielder Ott made a sliding
catch off a short fly to center.

'Conversation' focuses on positive change


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


If someday Sarasota County citizens get a rebate
for exchanging grass lawns for Florida-friendly land-
scaping, thank the participants of Wednesday's
Community Conversation on Energy and Climate at
the Venice Community Center.
Participants in the Earth Day event, titled Local
Action for Powerful Change, spent a large part of the
afternoon in breakout groups discussing topics such
as waste, transportation, green buildings, and food
and agriculture. Their mission was to come up with
ideas that, according to Lee Hayes Byron, sustainabil-
ity manager in the environmental services depart-
ment, could be included within a community action
plan to be developed over the next year.
"You take the lead," she said, urging participants to
"move forward to sustainability."
One of the three work groups devoted to land-
scapes and natural areas suggested "buying back the
lawn." The idea currently is being used by the
Southern Nevada Water Authority as part of its Water
Smart Landscapes program.
Participants in that program, according to the
authority's Web site, could earn a rebate of "$1.50 per
square foot of grass removed and replaced with desert
landscaping up to the first 5,000 square feet (of) con-
verted per property, per year. Beyond the first 5,000

gram, Mick said she was impressed by how local resi-
dents "want to have ownership" of the energy prob-
lems and solutions. She also was impressed by how
residents want to partner with government to find
answers to energy sustainability.
"They want to do something; they want action,"
she said.
David Patton, an electrical engineer from
Longboat Key, talked about the issue of mercury
found in both compact fluorescent lights and current
fluorescent lighting, which can contaminate landfills.
The issue came up during a question-and-answer
session with keynote speaker Philip Fairey, deputy
director of the Florida Solar Energy Center and the
person who conceived and developed the Florida
Building Energy-Efficiency Rating System.
In answer to a question about the toxicity of the
fluorescent lights, Fairey said the amount going to
landfills is "very, very small compared to coal-burning
power plants." He said there should be disposal sys-
tems for all fluorescent lighting systems.
Later, Patton said there should be a buy-back or
rebate system to encourage proper disposal of the
lighting.
At the end of the program, the concept of minimiz-
ing lawns was given a high priority. The four other
priorities included supporting local food consump-
tion and sustainability, prioritizing the planting of
Florida-friendly trees and shrubs, reducing the num-
ber of miles traveled by autos and finding alternate
methods of transportation, and creating an energy
action plan that included promoting energy audits.

OUR TOWN


SAIL WITH JAMES TAYLOR 6B


Everything's up to


date in Ho Chi


Minh City/Saigon
BY DON BLAIR
GUEST WRITER
Have you been to Saigon lately?
Oh sorry, I mean Ho Chi Minh City.
Technically, legally and every other way, what the world knew as Saigon
during the Vietnam War was officially renamed Ho Chi Minh City in 1976 by
the Communist rulers in Hanoi, more than 1,000 miles to the north.
Actually, today it is both because of tourists like us. Seeing that once war-ravaged
city for the first time, we were determined to buy Saigon T-shirts and such and we
had no trouble at all finding them.
As we traveled the city in a tour bus March 23, our entertaining young guide
made it clear that Hanoi soon learned to let business be business and, with a pop-
ulation nearing 8 million and an incredible 4 million motorcycles (most are actu-
ally smaller motorbikes) crowding the streets, business of all kinds is very, very
good.
It's just that it's worth your life to try to cross the streets. Truly. The motorbikes
just keep coming in waves. I saw one carrying a family of five mom, dad and
three kids.
Having left the comfort of our cruise ship, the Royal Princess, for the tour bus,
we were bouncing our way through several miles of rutted and potholed streets.
Our tour bus entered into the modern city teeming with some 300,000 busi-
nesses, about 76 universities and colleges with a total enrollment of more than
380,000 students, some 100 publicly owned hospitals or medical centers
and dozens of privately owned clinics.


In addition, there are hundreds of hotels, includ-
ng 10 proudly wearing five gold stars.
Surprisingly, to me anyway,

meedthe gldsar. sope


for lunch there on our day in the city and saw a
hotel once used by the American military and the news media
for the daily briefings that supplied our newspapers and networks during the war
there. As a Manhattan-based correspondent for the now-defunct Mutual
Broadcasting System, I must have had contact with Saigon announcer Joseph
Fried 1,000 times or more. Most of the time, Joe's lead would be something along
the lines of "Giant B-52s today again appeared over Hanoi...
I could only imagine the Rex Hotel as dusty, dirty, run down, abused and
generally not looking very appealing while war raged there. Today it sparkles
and, to our eyes, matches anything the city has to offer.
The city proper, apart from the incredible traffic, is smart, clean and
up to date. Building continues briskly in an effort to provide housing for an
exploding population. Visitors can gaze upon wide elegant boulevards, his-
toric French colonial buildings, museums, beautifully maintained parks
and hundreds of cinemas and theaters.
The city has five districts, much the way New York has its five bor-
oughs, and we left convinced that that is why the name Saigon prevails.
One district is still called Saigon, especially by the folks who live there, and they

nickname for it contains some 4 million motorbikes.

Sail with James Taylor Race into Miami


)ard


Ien Mary 2


Iconic singer-song-
writer to set sail
from New York June
19 on a legendary
trans-Atlantic
crossing

FROM CUNARD LINE

Grammy Award-win-
ning singer-songwriter
James Taylor and his
band will perform during
Queen Mary 2's June 19
eastbound trans-Atlantic
crossing. Sailing from
New York to Southamp-
ton, England, Taylor will
headline two Cunard
Command Performances
in the ship's Royal Court
Theatre during the six-
day journey. (Space is still
available to book this
very special voyage.)
"We are honored to
welcome James Taylor
aboard our flagship
Queen Mary 2 and into a
lineage of luminaries
who have sailed with
Cunard during our 170-
year history," said Carol
Marlow, president of Cu-
nard Line. "Our guests
will most certainly enjoy
this intimate concert ex-
perience with an Amer-
ican music icon."
Over the course of his
celebrated career, Taylor
has earned 40 gold, plat-
inum and multi-plat-
inum awards and five
Grammy Awards for
works ranging from
"Sweet Baby James" in
1970 to "Covers," his
most recent album fea-
turing his own interpre-
tation of tunes from the
'50s, '60s and '70s, for
which he was nominated
for two 2009 Grammy
Awards. In 2000, he was
inducted into the Rock
and Roll Hall of Fame and
the Songwriters Hall of
Fame. Most recently, Tay-
lor was one of a select few
music artists who per-
formed for President
Barack Obama's inaugu-
ration.
"I've always wanted to
take an ocean liner back
to Europe. It's such a civi-
lized way to go, and the
Queen Mary 2 is the last
word in first class travel,"
Taylor said. "It was a
dream to use the passage
to transport and rehearse
our summer tour, band,
crew and family; kit and
caboodle. I'm looking
forward to the pair of
concerts at the end of the
trip and, hallelujah, no jet
lag."
Queen Mary 2 offers
an array of accommoda-
tion combining classic
Cunard touches with a
stylish, refined elegance.

Bow down to my
power over all that you
hear on the radio, for I
am Arbitron Man.
Yes, after years of hav-
ing jillions of opinions
that no one wanted to
hear, Arbitron, the rat-
ings company, called out
of the blue to recruit me
to report on the radio sta-
tions I listen to.
I tried to explain that I
rarely listen to the radio,
preferring CDs or the joy-
ous sounds of my chil-
dren's voices (over which
it is nearly impossible to
hear anything, including
my own thoughts). No
matter, said the Arbitron
person; the listening
habits of non-radio peo-
ple are important to the
survey.
OK, I said, anything
for science. (Did I men-
tion there was talk of a lit-
tle something to com-
pensate me for my time?
There was.)
A few days later I got a
letter from the company,
signed by the president
himself, no less. Clearly
they were bringing out
the big guns to show me
just how important I was
to them. And along with
the letter came a more
tangible token of the
company's appreciation
- a very crisp George
Washington, if you get
my drift. Call it a down
payment.


We got our official
Arbitron diaries shortly
before we (I got my wife
in on this gravy train, of


course) were to begin
keeping track of our lis-
tening. I was hoping for
some official Arbitron ID
too (purely for kicks; I
swear I had no intention
of using it to try to shake
down a radio station for
some payola. Besides,
there aren't any in Venice
anymore). We did each
get another Washington,
though, making me
regret going into print
journalism instead of
broadcasting, where the
real money obviously is.
I faithfully kept my
diary for the whole end-
lessly long ratings period
(OK, it was a week, but it
seemed like it would
never end). And so did
my wife, although the
fact she never listens to
the radio made her job
easier (there's a little box


on each
check to
Arbitron
with a


diary page to
indicate that).

Washingtons during the
week to make sure we
knew we were bought
and paid for and would
mail the diaries back
ASAP, which I did -
there's no telling what the
consequences might be
for letting Arbitron down.
Public service accom-
plished, we put all our
hard-earned money in
the stock market (it
bought about 1,000
shares of GM) and are
just sitting back to see
the impact we well, I
- have on local radio.
Unless Arbitron fig-
ures out I couldn't actual-
ly have been listening to
an all-polka station 24
hours a day.

Church of the Nazarene


celebrates Earth Day


FROM CHURCH
OF THE NAZARENE


The Venice Church of the
Nazarene preschool celebrates
Earth Day with a variety of
activities to help youngsters
appreciate and take care of the
Earth.
Teachers demonstrate what
litter can do to water by plac-
ing garbage in a container of
clean water. By observing how
the water changes from cloudy
to dirty after a few days, the
children conclude that throw-
ing garbage in our lakes and
oceans is harmful to the fish,
frogs and other animals who
live there.
"This makes a powerful
visual," said Gloria Caprio,
director of the preschool.
"Most children are fascinated
by nature and have a natural
affection toward animals.


These visuals create a clear
picture of what our actions of
throwing litter on the ground
can do to our natural world.
"Teachers give them the
opportunities to see these
cause and effect relationships.
Otherwise, they may not be
making these connections at
such an early age."
The concept of Reduce,
Reuse, Recycle was taught by
reusing plastic water contain-
ers to build an igloo, creating
kites with plastic grocery bags,
making musical instruments
with paper towel tubes, and
using plant clippings to create
new plants.
"It is exciting to see that little
light go on in a child's mind,
and then observe a child
expand and develop their own
new ideas on how to protect
our beautiful Earth," Caprio
said.


Special Mass celebrates St. Joseph


STORY PROVIDED


The Italian American Club of
Venice participated in the cele-
bration of a special Mass hon-
oring St. Joseph's Day at
Epiphany Cathedral on March
19. The celebrant was the Most
Rev. Frank J. Dewane, bishop of
the Diocese ofVenice.
Members of the club pre-
pared and baked the bread
that was first blessed by the
bishop prior to the Mass then
distributed to all those in
attendance following the ser-
vice. This tradition of distribut-
ing bread goes back to
medieval times when during a
drought and famine, Sicilians
prayed to St. Joseph and the
famine subsided. They attrib-
uted this to the saint and

WEEKEND EDITION APRIL 25, 2009


Do you see what they see?


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Yes, Virginia,* there are
aliens.
Given the infinite numbers
of planets, galaxies and solar
systems, it is unlikely that
Earth is the only populated
planet.
If that concept is accepted,
then what are the odds that
some alien beings have found
their way to this solar system
and then to this planet?
Possible, yes, but what is the
probability?
Mathematicians would say
the odds are as great as the fac-
torial numbers of the total
number of planets or simply
put somewhere between
slim and next to none yet
still possible.
Nobody can conceive or
imagine all the wonders there
are unseen and unseeable in
the world.*
It is that possibility, however
slim, that binds together a
group of people who call


RELIGION from Page 8B


themselves the The Tinfoil Hat
Society.
The Venice group is headed
by G.D. "Gordie" Struble Jr.
Members are dedicated to the
"scientific study of the UFO
(Unidentified Flying Object)
Phenomenon."
Struble and Maureen Young
were two of the Venice contin-
gent that recently returned
from the 18th International
UFO Congress at Laughlin, Nev.
"...We had about 850 'UFO
freaks' attending this year, with
over 650 preregistered, full-
package, prepaid attendees,"
Young said. "I question peo-
ple that point out the fact that
I believe in the little green
men. I usually correct them
and respond with, 'They're
not green, they're grey!' You
don't believe? What's wrong
with you!"
According to Struble and
Young the speakers included
doctors, nuclear physicists,
astrophysicists, "many Ph.D.s"
and others. They came from
Italy, Croatia, Mexico, Turkey,


Scotland and Brazil as well as
from most states in the United
States.
"The Brazilian government
has publicly stated that UFOs
do exist," Young said. "Brazil
has had numerous flotilla
demonstrations."
In addition to oral presenta-
tions about the appearance of
UFOs in such places as Brazil
and elsewhere, participants
brought films both as proof that
UFOs do exist and also to enter
in the annual EBE (extraterres-
trial biological entity) Awards &
Film Festival.
The congress dates to 1991,
according to its Web site. Its
goal is to "research, document
and disseminate UFO and
related information world-
wide." There is a board of
directors, an annual weeklong
convention at Laughlin, where
members and guests share
their experiences and sight-
ings, if any. It seems there
always are some and the
videos and DVDs to "prove"
them.


It is not all about aliens
and flying saucers. Attendees
also discuss ancient history,
reincarnation and such phe-
nomena as crop circles as
well as the "purpose of the
human journey."
"A couple of people have
seen crop circles being made,"
Struble said. "The crops are
never broken and they have
seen three layers, with the
crops leaning in three different
directions."
From such discussions,
attendees might also get into
"sacred geometry" and "resid-
ual radiation," Strubel said in
discussing some of the sub-
jects discussed at the congress.
Among the DVDs Struble
has purchased at prior confer-
ences are "Alien Messages" by
Maurice Osborne and "The
Contact Reports," also by
Osborne. The latter concerns
reports of contact with a
human race from beyond the
Pleiades and Eduard 'Billy'
Meier from Switzerland."
Struble also has a DVD con-


taining information about so-
called "hot spots" in Gulf
Breeze, Fla.
The next international con-
gress will be Feb. 21-27 at the
Aquarius Casino & Resort in
Laughlin. There will be 30
speakers, 40 exhibitors, a film
festival, closing banquet and
awards and, judging by this
year's turnout, as many as
1,000 attendees. For informa-
tion, visit www.ufocongress.
com or call (602) 889-3083.
For information about the
Venice group and its monthly
meetings, which are held at 7
p.m. on the last Tuesday of the
month in the main meeting
room in the Venice Public
Library, 300 S. Nokomis Ave.,

The next meeting is sched-
uled for April 28 at 6 p.m.

are referred to as "Saigonese." There
also is a wonderful Chinatown.
What keeps these folks busy and
employed? Mining, seafood processing,
agriculture, as in growing a whole lot of
rice in addition to all the usual fruits
and vegetables they consume or
export, tourism, finance and trading -
of all kinds.
Seen from the Saigon River, and we
did, the city, by whichever name you
choose to call it, looks like 100 others
around this globe. There are close to 7
million cellular phones there now and
that number is increasing annually by
20 percent.
I called it "surprising Saigon" only
because of what took place there and
all over Vietnam only a few decades


BY CHIP LUDLOW
ARTS REVIEWER

The Sarasota Ballet pre-
sented an absolutely as-
tonishing and brilliant
production of "Anna Ka-
renina" at the Van Wezel.
It was wonderful to see
this ever-improving com-
pany offer a presentation
on a full-sized stage, and
one that was so impres-
sive and stunning.
From the opening
scene at the railroad sta-
tion with the arrival of a
train complete with lights
and steam to the final
scene at the same station,
this was a production to
be savored and remem-
bered.
The story is based on
Tolstoy's novel of the
same name with music
by Tchaikovsky.
The choreography is
by AndrO Prokovsky and
depicts the story of an
unhappily married Anna
who finds true love with
Count Alexei Vronsky.
Complications arise
however because Anna
and her husband have a
son, Seryozha, whom
Anna adores totally.
Anna falls completely
for Vronsky and becomes
his mistress and subse-
quently sends a letter to
her husband enclosing
her wedding ring.
Karenin refuses Anna's
request for a divorce and,
in doing so, forbids her to
see her son.
After going to Vron-
sky's country home and
spending some time
there, he tires of the
country life and wants to
return to the high society

ago.
The people are exceedingly friendly.
One of our tour group asked our guide
if his fellow Vietnamese bore any
resentment toward Americans.
He chuckled.
"Resent ... hate?" he said. "This
country, has been invaded by France,
the U.S., China, Japan and a couple of
others. That is past ... how could we go
on hating just about everybody. Time to
look ahead."
Indeed.
We were surprised and pleased. If
you're ever in that part of the world,
check it out.

of St. Petersburg.
Anna follows but is
snubbed by her former
friends.
She cannot accept her
life as it is now, alone,
without family, friends
and particularly her son.
Once again she is or-
dered from her former
home.
Desolate, she wanders
the streets and goes to
the railroad station
where, in desperation,
she throws herself under
an arriving train.
Lorin Strongin was
passionately beautiful
and engaging as the
young Anna Karenina.
She danced with verve
and an emotion of lilting
joy that was exhilarating
clearly showing Anna's
love and passion for her
forbidden love.
In another fashion,
she showed Anna's love
for her son (well danced
by Andrew Florio) and
her disdain for her cold
and aloof husband
(pompously danced by
Octavio Martin).
As Vronsky, Sergiy
Myhaylov created a char-
acter who loved Anna
deeply, but just couldn't
keep himself from the
social life in St. Peters-


burg.
Myhaylov and Anna
danced with energy and
offered adagios that were
thrilling. Tender mo-
ments were heartbreak-
ing, and intricate lifts and
throws were breathtak-
ing. They created a pas-
sion that left the audi-
ence in rapture.
In addition to the
principals, there was
excellent work by the
entire company. Espec-
ially to be mentioned are
Logan Learned, Rick Ber-
toni and Alexei Kon-
dratyuk in a Russian
Dance and avery fine pas
de six by members of the
female corps de ballet.
In all details, this was
one of the finest produc-
tions of "Anna Karenina"
that one could hope for:
brilliant in production
value and equally bril-
liant in performance.
The final offering of
the Sarasota Ballet is a
world premiere, "The
Triolgy: Wolfgang Ama-
deus Mozart" in collabo-
ration with Dominic
Walsh Dance Theater at
the FSU Center for the
Performing Arts April 25-
26.

tickets, call 351-8000.

popular
term "crick" is a
catchall phrase that refers
to a variety of neck
ailments, the most common
of which involves the inability
to turn the head or use the
affected arm after "sleeping
wrong." The fact is that a person
can experience considerable pain in
the neck and/or along the shoulder
blade after sleeping in an abnormal
position, such as sleeping on an
unfamiliar pillow. As a result, strained
muscles can go into spasm, causing
stiffness. It may also be that the
ligaments surrounding small facet joints
(two of which are in each pair of
vertebrae, to allow movement) can
become strained and throw the muscles
into protective spasm. Massage and
gentle manipulation may help.


P.S. Rotating the neck or bending it
suddenly can also bring on a crick
in the neck.

The fairest mirrors of them all can remake a room


By KIM COOK
FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
When Louis XIV
decided that the royal
palace atVersailles should
have a huge Hall of
Mirrors, his minister of
finance saw an opportu-
nity.
Jean-Baptiste Colbert, a
fierce nationalist, was
determined that Paris be
able to compete with
Venice in producing
luxury products like silk,
lace and mirrors. He
recruited Venetian
artisans to come to Paris
to craft all 357 of the hall's
mirrors. They devised a
method of pouring hot
glass onto an iron table
that allowed them for the
first time to make really
big mirrors.
With its elaborate


ceiling art and solid silver
tables, lamps and orange
tree pots, the magnificent
17th century hall was the
setting for balls, births,
even the signing of the
Treaty of Versailles.
We don't live in glit-
tering palaces, but many
of us do tend to think of
mirrors as a tad gaudy, a
bitVegas, and not a
material we can decorate
with easily.
None of which need be
true.
We might consider
mirrors the way feng shui
practitioners do. They see
mirrors as serving three
purposes: expansion,
reflection, deflection.
A well-placed mirror,
particularly one that
reflects an open doorway
or window, can open up a
small space. It doubles the


feeling of space and, in
feng shui, serves an even
greater function: It's
believed that when a
mirror reflects something
good such as a family
portrait, pleasing scenery
or symbolic object its
positive effects are
doubled. Bagua mirrors,
on the other hand, are
seen in feng shui as bad-
energy deflectors used on
the outside of the home.
A mirror clad in a pretty
or unusual frame will
enliven the most basic
room.
"They're a focal point in
bathrooms, functional in
bedrooms and closets, can
serve as accent pieces on
dining room walls and in
foyers, and add height and
light to small, dark spaces.
When designing a room,
it's the one thing I almost


always use," says designer
and HGTV celebrity Will
Smith.
Notes New York
designer Geoffrey
Bradfield, "mirrors give a
room an illusion of
infinity."
Round mirrors can be
especially smart looking.
Pottery Barn has an Art
Deco-style beveled glass
beauty that hangs on a
faux leather strap. Another
is wrapped in sustainably
harvested cherry tree
bark.
In Rocky Mount, Va.,
Uttermost has a stable of
artists creating mirror
designs, such as Grace
Feyock's "Raindrops," a
constellation of tiny
mirrored circles orbiting a
larger one. Her "Kellan" is
a swirl of silver leaf
around a beveled mirror,


and "Tamryn" boasts a
headdress of woven palm
tree fibers.
Horchow offers a hand-
painted, wood-framed
mirror designed by Janice
Minor that looks like it's
bristling with porcupine
quills.
And mirrors don't have
to be hung. Prop one on a
dresser or console with a
few favorite objects placed
in front of it; you'll enjoy
your things from two
vantage points.
A large mirror placed at
floor level in an entryway
comes in handy.
Horchow's version
features a mirrored frame,
which helps bounce the
light around.
Sundance Catalog has a
casement style framed in
steel, reminiscent of old
warehouse or country mill


windows.
MirrorMate, in North
Carolina, offers groupings
of "Pizzazz' custom-
framed mirrored squares,
with a personalized look.
Use them as artwork run
up to the ceiling, or as a
decorative headboard.
The company also
custom frames existing
"raw" mirrors, such as
bathroom vanities. The
frames attach directly to
the mirror. Do the
perimeter or, on an
especially large mirror,
frame just the area over
the sink to add a dramatic,
"finished" look.
Lisa Huntting, the
creative brain behind the
concept, says it was her
own move to a new home
in Charlotte, N.C., that

It's much easier to say G'Day
than farewell and the last
couple of weeks I have been
busy saying farewell to our


many "Snowbird" friends
heading North, which got me
thinking about why my wife,
Beverly, and I love living here
all year round.
We moved to Punta Gorda in
2000 after spending 15 years in
New Jersey. I must say that we
really enjoyed many a summer
day touring the Garden State,
but dreaded the long winters.
Having vacationed in several
Florida locations, when we
decided to move to Florida, it
was not too difficult to choose
Punta Gorda.
We love the small historic
town atmosphere, the water-
front location, the friendly
people, the great restaurants,
the slower pace and non-
congested roads and, of
course, the fresh air and
guaranteed sunshine. We
cannot believe the incredible


selection of birds and tropical
foliage and our local Audubon
Society does a great job
arranging frequent nature
walks to educate us on what
we can find in our own back
yard.
It was tough to say goodbye
to our neighbors and friends in
New Jersey but with the
outdoor lifestyle in Punta
Gorda, we were soon playing
golf, sitting on many a lanai
enjoying cocktails and taking
trips with new friends to
beaches, parks, restaurants
and shows. We were intrigued
that the locals came from all
over the United States, Canada
and Europe, but all were
excited to show us the local
attractions and many places to
visit.
Moving to Southwest Florida
with a teenager, we were


pleased to find an excellent
education system and top
notch medical facilities with
an outstanding choice of
specialist consultants in every
medical field.
If Punta Gorda wasn't great
when we moved here, it has
gotten better and better every
year. There are so many
functions being held in Punta
Gorda on any given day, it is
impossible to attend them all!
Although we have been
through a very tough
economic period, it is
apparent that we are starting
to see signs of a recovery. I can
confirm from my personal
increase in home sales that we
are on the way back and
Florida home sales in general
have increased for the last six
months in a row and we have
no reason to anticipate that


this trend will not continue.
Current home values are still
extremely low and the selling
prices are at about the same
level as they were five years
ago! The choice is amazing
with plenty of homes to select
from in all different styles and
price ranges.
Mortgage rates are contin-
uing to be incredibly low and
more folks are taking advan-
tage of the unbelievable
opportunity to obtain a reverse
mortgage.
I still cannot believe that you
can buy a home and have the
bank pay you to live in it for
the rest of your life! If you don't
do anything else after reading
this newsletter, check out the
details regarding a reverse
mortgage.
In summary, now is the time
to buy a home!

MIRRORS: Reflect your assets


FROM PAGE 2

sparked the idea.
"Though I was deco-
rating the bathrooms with
accessories and pictures,
they just never looked
'done' because that huge
mirror remained naked!"
she says.
The frames also help
solve issues like edge-
silvering, or unattractive
mirror clips, she says. They
run about $100-$200,
depending on size and
style.
Seura, a Green Bay, Wis.,
firm, has adapted new
technology to create a
sleek mirror/television
combination. Turned off,
you have an attractively
framed mirror, but press a


button and the mirror
morphs into an LCD TV
screen.
Featured on some home
design programs, the
product found its way into
upscale hotels before
interior decorators took
notice of it as a way to
"hide" the TV. Tim
Gilbertson, Seura's
president, says that even
given today's ravenous
appetite for technology,
"we still may not be willing
to compromise atmos-
phere, or give up the
comfort of a calm, sophis-
ticated environment."
Mirrored finishes also
are turning up on dressers,
shelving, backsplashes,
candlesticks, even fire-
places as a relatively
inexpensive way to add


glamour and lightplay to a
space.

One man's answer to high gas prices


hat an extreme
change from last
week's Rail Type
Dragster to what we see
here, a full electric-
powered 1998 Ford
pickup.
A short time ago, its
owners, John and Eva
Ryder of Punta Gorda,
contacted me about the
possibility of joining the
Veteran Motor Car Club of
America, but were not
sure they would qualify
since their vehicle wasn't
very old. I explained one
does not actually need to
own an antique auto at all,
just simply to have a
sincere interest in the
hobby. That was when
John explained they had a
very rare battery-powered
Ford Ranger EV pickup.
My ears perked up, and I
soon met them for a look-
see of something I had
read about years ago.
Knowing my limitations
of understanding "things"
dealing with electricity of
most any type, I felt it best
for this very experienced
man to share his knowl-
edge of this unique
vehicle. The Ryders use it
daily around Charlotte
County. Factory AC keeps
them cool, however, that
cuts the range from a 50-
mile radius down to 40. It
then requires a charge of
six hours to be road-
worthy again. Normally
these charges add about
$30 to their electric bill, a
real bargain compared to
petrol!
Below is his own story,
which was provided to me
for this article, that
includes specs and many
details known only to him.
"The Ford Ranger EV
series of a total of 1,500
units were produced and


You Auto
Know A_


Don
Royston

sold from the 1998
through 2002 model years.
All leased vehicles in 2003
were recalled and taken
back by Ford Motor Co.
"The 1998 model used
39 each 8-volt lead acid
batteries, and had a
constant speed range of
86 miles at 45 mph.
Energy used: 20.6 kwh;
average power: 10.7 kw;
efficiency: 237 wh/mile.
The constant speed range
at 60 mph was 57 miles.
Energy used: 20.6 kwh;
average power: 21.4 kw;
efficiency: 356 wh/mile;
acceleration 0-50:
13 seconds, top speed
75 mph.
"The 1999-2002 model
used 25 each 12-volt
nickel metal hydride
batteries, increasing the
range to 115 miles at
45 mph, and 74 miles at
60 mph. Transmission:
3:1 single-speed reduction
integrated with motor and
differential. Rear drive
consisted of carbon fiber
leaf springs supporting a
DeDion tube located by a
Watt's linkage, motor/
transmission was attached
to chassis, half shafts
angle downward to drive
the wheels.
"The nominal 312 volt
DC battery pack voltage
was converted to 3 phase
AC to drive the water-
cooled motor by an
inverter located where the
spare tire would be. The
motor was rated 90hp, 0-
13,000 RPM. Siemens

of 86 miles at 45 mph.


manufactured the motor
and inverter. All power
electronics were water-
cooled, except for the 220-
volt charger, which is air-
cooled. The inverter/
motor produces regenera-
tive braking, which is used
to charge the batteries
when the brakes are
applied.
"The Ranger EV came
standard with AM/FM
stereo radio, tilt steering
wheel, electric cabin heat,
dual air bags, power
steering, power brakes,
four-wheel disc brakes,
four-wheel anti-lock
brakes, regenerative
braking, full-bed tonneau
cover, aluminum wheels,
low-rolling resistance tires
and air conditioning,"
John Ryder said.
That's a lot to digest, but
once you read this, you
can become the instant
expert who can explain
the above to your friends.


Prior to moving to
Florida in 1993, the couple
formerly resided in
northern New Jersey,
where they raised six
children, who themselves
have a total of 12 children
- quite a sizeable family
in this day and age. John,
64, worked in Orlando a
total of 15 years for a large
packing company before
taking an early buyout in
2007 and moving to
Florida's west coast.
During those busy
years, he still found time
to own a 1939 Chevy,
several 1955-57 Fords, a
1956 T-Bird and a 1967
Cougar. While looking
online for something to
"play with," the electric
truck, listed by a dealer
who had purchased it
from Broward County
Utilities, caught his eye. It
was something totally
different. A quick deal was
made, even though it was


not driveable and had to
be towed to their home in
Lakeland. Many, many
hours of his labor and
much money resulted in a
roadworthy unit that in
which they have pride and
confidence.
Look for the Ranger EV

Pet ownership
good for your health


If you have been thinking about adding
a pet to the family it may be to your advantage
to do so. It seems that owning a pet can be ben-
eficial for your physical and emotional well-
being. Statistics indicate that pet owners have
lower blood pressure and lower stress levels,
especially for male pet owners. This in turn
relates to lower instances of heart disease
among pet parents. Having a pet around can
also boost a person's mood. In general, pet
owners have fewer health costs and reasons to
visit their doctor. While it's not likely that we'll
see health insurance discounts for pet owners,
some people find it is good to know that their
furry or feathered companion offers so much
in addition to his or her unconditional love.

Bee Stings

and Spider Bites

When the warm weather arrives, so do
the insects that share our outdoor living spaces.
While in most cases humans and insects can
peacefully co-exist, sometimes encounters end
with people suffering bites or stings.
Wasps and bees are common flying
insects that can be very beneficial. Bees polli-
nate flowers and wasps generally feed on other
insects. Wasps (which include the yellow jacket)
and bumblebees can sting repeatedly because
their stinger is not left behind. A honeybee's
stinger is barbed, so it is left behind in its vic-
tim, resulting in the bee's death. Unless a per-
son is severely allergic to bee or wasp stings,
mild irritation will occur at the sting site and
itching, swelling, nausea, and other minor
effects may crop up.
Spiders are also common in backyards
and around homes in the warmer weather. Pets,
children and adults may come across several
different varieties of spiders. Many spiders have
the ability to bite but will not do so unless pro-
voked or feeling threatened. Some people are
caught off-guard that a seemingly innocuous
spider can bite. Case in point is the common
jumping spider. This pint-sized jumping won-
der that many encounter in and around their
home is entertaining and bold. It will follow
your movements with its large eyes, many peo-
ple are surprised at how high, and fast it can
jump. Jumping spiders pack a painful bite that
has been described as a burning bee sting --
though most will not bite just for the heck of it.
For those concerned about a bee sting or
spider bite, it always pays to be cautious and
promptly visit a doctor or hospital, especially if
reactions to the bite get worse or if a person is
having difficulty breathing.
