Sea turtles being led astray


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Turtle hatchling season be-
gan on a discordant note.
Venice leads the area in the
number of disorientations on
its part of the 35-mile stretch of
Gulf beaches under the watch-
ful eye of Mote Marine Labor-
atory's Sea Turtle Conservation
Program.
"Having so many disorien-
tations at the beginning of


hatching season does not bode
well for the rest of the year,"
said Tony Tucker, Mote's sea
turtle program manager.
Artificial light shining on
beaches is the chief culprit,
although scientists have noted
an increase in disorientations
during certain moon phases,
Tucker said.
Based on data summarized
July 28, there were 26 disorien-
tations along Venice beaches,
where 44 of 160 nests had


hatched. Longboat Key was
second with 24 disorientations
of 44 hatched nests. With with
a total of 200 nests laid there,
its percentages were lower.
The total number of disori-
ented hatchlings was at least
1,937, according to Mote.
Casey Key remains the safest
beach for nesting and hatch-
ling turtles with just three dis-
orientations from 63 hatched

venture

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

City council candidate Har-
ry Walia used to have a direct
business interest at Venice
Municipal Airport, but that
faded a year ago, he disclosed
in a recent conversation with
the Gondolier Sun.
He had envisioned operat-


ing his own
small airline
at one time.
He came up
with the idea
two and a half
years ago
while visiting
his mother in
India.
"My op-


Walia


tions were a
12-hour train ride from New
Delhi to travel 300 miles or to
get a small plane," he said.
"When inquiring, I discovered
there were no small airlines in
that area. I asked why. They
said we can't get pilots.
"I came back with the inten-
tion of owning a small fran-
chise airline and flight school
in India. That was the goal. Get
my pilots trained here, then set
up my airline in India."
Upon returning from India,
Walia interviewed flight schools
in Venice and stuck a deal with

Police shoot dogs to make arrest


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR


Christopher Lee Siringer
would have been arrested
Thursday night, but he could-
n't be found after Venice Police
Department officers respond-
ed to a domestic violence call
from a victim being treated at
Venice Regional Medical Cen-
ter.
The victim told officers that
her former boyfriend, Siringer,
asked her to pick him up at his
home in the 700 block of Laur-
el Ave., and take him shopping.
She reported that when she
arrived, Siringer became irate
with her about a prior inci-
dent, according to the report.
The victim said Siringer
began yelling at her when she
tried to explain to him why she
had asked him to leave a previ-
ous location. Siringer then
grabbed the victim by her
throat and dragged her to the
bedroom.
The victim reported that
Siringer began strangling her.
She was unable to breathe or
talk because her air flow was
cut off by the pressure he was
applying to her neck and
throat.
The victim said Siringer
then threw her down and her
head struck the terrazzo floor.
Siringer placed his body over
hers, preventing her from leav-
ing the house while she was
repeatedly pleading with him
to let her go.
Siringer released his hold on
her neck after she told him she
felt blood coming from the
back of her head. Still, he
wouldn't allow her to leave.
"Tell them (law enforce-
ment) that you slipped and
fell," Siringer said, according to

Department officer who was trying to arrest him for domestic battery.


the victim's statement.
Dog attack
The victim said he told her
he might as well finish her off
and drew a knife and pointed it
at her, saying he was going to
kill her.
She continued begging Sir-
inger to stop hurting her and
let her go.
Siringer finally let her leave,
but followed her to her car,
where another confrontation
occurred. Siringer struck the
left driver's side door, leaving a
dent that was visible to offi-
cers.
The victim left and went to
the emergency room, where
she received medical care for
injuries to her throat and head.
Officers went to Siringer's
house, but he had fled the area.
A day-shift officer was dri-
ving by the house Friday and


called VPD to tell his superior
that it looked like Siringer was
home.
VPD put together a team of
officers and went to the house.
Capt. Tom McNulty, who
was on scene, said the officers
approached the house in a
careful manner because Sir-
inger had challenged law en-
forcement before.
When Siringer opened the
door, he unleashed his two
dogs on the officers.
"They were circling and
lunging at an officer who was
literally going in circles trying
to shoo the dogs away with his
free hand and his gun hand,"
McNutly said.
When the officer couldn't
get the dogs to back off, he shot
them.
Siringer was arrested and
charged with felony domestic
battery by strangulation, do-


mestic aggravated assault and
kidnapping false imprison-
ment for what he did to the vic-
tim. Friday, he
was charged
with aggravat-
ed assault for
sending the
dogs after the
officers and
resisting arrest
without vio-
lence. He re-
ceived no Siringer
bond on the
strangulation and aggravated
assault charges and $3,500 on
the false imprisonment charge.
McNulty said he was
pleased with the officers' work.
"They did everything right,"
he said. "They did just what I
would expect them to do."

Mid-State: suspicious too late


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Nothing raised red flags for
Mid-State Energy officials until
repeated calls to its conve-
nience store went unanswer-
ed.
That's when Mid-State sent
a field representative to EZ
Stop USA Inc., 360 Commer-
cial Court, Venice.
But it was too late. Thou-
sands of dollars in cash and gift
cards had already been stolen.
Shaun Tingle, general man-
ager of Mid-State, said that
when the representative ar-
rived in Venice he found peo-
ple holding signs stating that if
patrons paid in cash, they
would get their gas 30 cents
cheaper than at nearby sta-
tions.
"Our field representative
called the sheriff's depart-
ment," Tingle said. "He was


told that it was a civil issue and
we had to walk away and let
them sell the gas."
Tingle said he contacted
Mid-State's attorneys, who
called the State Attorney Earl
Moreland's office, which has
agreed to criminally prosecute
the case.
Dan Yuter, assistant state
attorney, said whenever there
is a contract, such as with a
tenant, it gets complicated as
to whether the case is criminal
or civil. He said he expects to
file the case by the end of
August.
'Shocking'
Adnan Zaid, 37, and Amane


Mahd Zaid, 28, 1600 block
Valley Drive, Venice, tenants of
the convenience store busi-
ness, have been arrested and
charged with second-degree
felony grand theft ($20,000-
$100,000). They were released
on $10,000 bond each.
Tingle said the two are from
Jordan and their passports
have been suspended.
According to the report, the
Zaids are accused of stealing
nearly $70,000 worth of gaso-
line and $3,250 in gift cards
from Mid-State.
"It was very shocking to us,"
Tingle said. "They had been

Bridging the gaps


BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

At the Aug. 4 meeting of
the Friends of Legacy Trail,
Alex Boudreau, county
engineer in charge of the
completion of the two
bridges that will span Dona
and Roberts bays, present-
ed to an enthusiastic group
details of the project.
Some of the details
included the official start


date of the 365-day project,
which was July 21. Material
used will be precast con-
crete components dyed a
dark brown color. The con-
tract was awarded to
Misener Marine of Tampa.
The Dona Bay bridge is 393
feet long, and Roberts Bay
is 333 feet. The Roberts Bay
Bridge will be completed
first.
Like the Legacy Trail,

widths will be 12 feet.
Clearance height of the
bridges will be 8 feet for
Roberts Bay and 12 feet
for Dona Bay, both calcu-
lated from mean high-tide
data.
The total cost of the pro-
ject is $3.2 million, which is
significantly lower than
original estimates. Upon
completion of the primary
construction phase of the
project, the contractor will


then have an additional 30
days to finish any supple-
mentary detail work.
In other news, Mike
Gippert, FLT president, told
the group the Metropolitan
Planning Organization had
moved the U.S. 41 Bypass
overpass project up on its
project-ranking list. The
board of county commis-
sioners was also in full sup-
port of the project.

Saltwater anglers need new licenses


FROM BARBARA FORD-COATES
SARASOTA COUNTY TAX
COLLECTOR

Beginning Aug. 1, Florida residents
fishing from the shore in saltwater
bodies need either the new resident
shoreline license or the resident salt-
water license for all saltwater fishing.
This includes fishing from a dock or a
pier unless it is a licensed pier.
If purchased in the tax collector's
office the license is $9 for the shore-
line and $17 for the resident saltwater.
An additional fee of 50 cents is added
at retail locations and, depending on
the license, about $3 if purchased


online or by phone.
The Fish andWildlife Conservation
Commission has stated the new law
will eventually save money for fisher-
men because it includes an exemp-
tion from a future federal regulation
that will cost $15 to $25.
In addition to the usual fishing
license exemptions for senior citizens
(65 and older), children (16 and under)
and active-
duty mili-
tary home
on leave, the
new law also
exempts peo-
ple drawing

food stamps, temporary cash assis-

for an exemption needs to carry a
Florida picture ID and proof of their
exemption.
One other exemption is available
for those who are totally and perma-
nently disabled, but they need to mail
an application to the commission in
Tallahassee. The application is avail-
able from the tax collector's office or
at www.SarasotaTaxCollector.com.
Fishing licenses can be purchased
at any tax collector's office, at

Renew Fla. license by

Sept. 1 to save money
FROM SARASOTA COUNTY

On Sept. 1, the cost to renew license
plates or a driver license in Florida will
increase and for most people, it will be more
than 50 percent. To save people money,
Sarasota County Tax Collector Barbara
Ford-Coates encourages all drivers to check
their license and registration to see if they
can renew before Sept. 1.
"The easiest way to renew is online at
www.SarasotaTaxCollector.com," Ford-Coates
said. 'Anyone with a license plate renewal due
from now through the end of November can
avoid the increase by renewing early."
Florida law allows Department of Motor
Vehicles renewals up to three months prior
to the expiration date; therefore, if your
vehicle renewal month is November, you
can renew starting in August. All renewals
before Sept. 1 will be at the lower rate.
In addition Ford-Coates noted that "dri-
vers who renew their license plate for two
years will be able to save twice as much."
However, if you have already renewed for
one year, the state does not allow you to
change that to a two-year renewal.
Unlike a license plate renewal, a driver
license can be renewed up to 18 months
ahead so the tax collector also advised "that
each of us should check our driver license
and if it expires before March 1, 2011, plan
to renew before Sept. 1."
For example if your license expires Feb.
15, 2011, you can renew beginning Aug. 15,
2009. However, remember that you cannot
renew until it's no more than 18 months
before the expiration date.
New residents or those adding a vehicle
should note that the largest increase affects
those purchasing a license plate for the first
time. On Sept. 1, that fee increases to over
$350 per vehicle.
Renewals for vehicle registration and dri-
ver licenses can be completed online at
www.SarasotaTaxCollector.com.


State launches new

organ-donor registry
FROM LIFELINK

Saving lives got easier for Sunshine State
residents Tuesday with the launch of
Florida's Joshua Abbott Organ and Tissue
Donor Registry.
Named in memory of lung transplant
recipient and donation advocate Joshua
Abbott, who died in 2006, this registry
replaces Florida's original database, which no
longer meets the state's needs. This new,
online registry allows residents to legally des-
ignate their wish to save lives as an organ or
tissue donor from the comfort of their own
home by visiting www.DonateLifeFlorida.org.
While registration will still be possible at
driver license offices, individuals can now
choose instead to register from anywhere
they have Internet access. Registrations will
be secure, with registered donors able to
update their wishes with a password when-
ever they like.
Florida's organ, tissue and eye donor pro-
grams access the registry to determine if
someone who has died made a decision
about donation while living. If a person des-
ignated himself to be a donor, that decision
is binding.
The Agency for Healthcare Administra-
tion partnered with statewide nonprofit
organization, Donate Life Florida, to over-
see the registry and donation related public
education. Funding for the registry comes
from voluntary contributions to the
HealthCare Trust Fund the $1 donation
Floridians make when obtaining or renew-
ing a driver license or vehicle tag. It is not
funded through general revenue.
Visit www.DonateLifeFlorida.org for more
information.

Council benefits



come under scrutiny


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

City council members
may self impose a
monthly contribution
into their own medical
coverage plan. Currently
council members do not
contribute, but all city
employees and retired
employees do.
Members Ernie Zavod-
nyik and Kit McKeon
raised the issue in
response to "miscon-
ceptions" about free
medical care for life.
While the coverage
may be free, those in the
program do have to pay
out-of-pocket expenses,
like deductibles, co-pay
and other fees that can
be significant and easily
run $3,000 to $6,000 for a
single event if someone
were to be hospitalized,
explained Alan Bullock,
director of administra-
tive services.
Bullock said currently
the city is waiving
$19,644 annually in
charges to provide the
insurance $11,940 for
current members and
$7,704 for retired council
members who partici-
pate in the program. The
number of council mem-
bers participating in the
program was not avail-
able. The city is self-
insured. Blue Cross Blue
Shield administers the
program.
Bullock said a Florida
Public Personnel Associa-
tion poll of 50 responses
from cities and counties
showed 38 percent
required sitting council
members to contribute,
21 percent offered a
mixed response like no
contributions for a single
member but required
contributions if a council
member elected coverage
for his family, 19 percent
didn't require a contribu-
tion, and 21 percent of the
government entities said
no coverage was avail-
able.
The single medical
coverage contribution


Zavodnyik McKeon

rate for current city
employees (fully vested
after six years) is $10 to
$40 per month; the fami-
ly rate is $225.
Retirees under 65 years
of age pay $167 per
month; those over 65
pay $90. The retiree
family medical contri-
bution rate (for a former
employee under 65) is
$205 monthly.
Council members
agreed at their last meet-
ing that contributing was
a matter of fairness to
union employees who
"have taken it on the chin"
during the recession.
"It's significant emo-
tionally to a number of
constituents," McKeon
said.
City staff will bring forth
contribution options,
which may include how
council members can
buy into the program, at
Tuesday's meeting.
'Saturday prohibition'
on agenda
City council will ad-
dress the issue of ending
the so-called "Saturday
prohibition" at its meet-
ing on Tuesday, Aug. 11.
If you've bought an
alcoholic beverage on a
Saturday in Venice since
1982, technically you've
contributed to the break-
ing of a law because city
code doesn't say sales are
legal on Saturdays. City
council will correct what
has been called a "tech-
nical oversight" in the
city's alcohol code when
it adopts a revised code
following a public hear-
ing on Tuesday. The
meeting begins at 1:30
p.m. A second public
hearing on the alcohol
ordinance is scheduled
for Aug. 25.

Changes coming soon to



South County SCAT routes


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

The elimination of four bus routes
and the addition of two others are
among the major changes to Sarasota
County's 10-year Transit Development
Plan announced Tuesday.
The Sarasota County Commission,
acting as the Sarasota County Trans-
portation Authority, approved the elim-
ination of Route 19 (North Port via U.S.
41) and Route 21 (also known as the
Englewood Loop), Route 24 (Scenic-
Woodmere/SouthVenice) and Route 25
(Bird Bay/Venice).
Route 16 (Englewood) trips will
increase in frequency from every two
hours to hourly, as will Route 9 trips.
According to the county, plan
improvements scheduled to be imple-
mented in late October or November
are expected to improve connections in
Venice and Englewood for Sarasota
County Area Transit riders. Formerly, a
major transit update would be made
every five years, according to Anthony
Beckford, Sarasota County Area Transit
general manager. Changes in state and
federal transit regulations have extend-
ed those changes to every 10 years, he
said.
A new Route 26 (the Venice
Connector) will cover for Route 19 and
parts of Route 16 with trips along the
U.S. 41-Venice Bypass, Venice Gardens,
the Seminole-Jamaica area of South
Venice and the Senior Friendship
Centers. Route 26 will operate every 90
minutes.
Elimination of the Englewood
Loop will remove service from the
Englewood Sports Complex. However,
Route 16 will extend along Dearborn
Street East, Pine Street and Medical
Boulevard to Englewood Community
Hospital in Englewood.
Route 16 will experience the most
significant changes, according to the
county. The route has been redesigned
to have more direct trips between
Venice and Englewood.
More changes
Sunday service will come to North
Port for the first time with Route 9S,


which will connect at the Jacaranda
Boulevard Walmart to Route 1713 (U.S.
41 to South Venice). The route will run
hourly from 10:44 a.m. to 6:44 p.m. and
travel on U.S. 41 to Sumter Boulevard.
With the loss of Route 21, North Port
residents will have one fewer transfer to
make as they travel to Englewood
Community Hospital. To get there, resi-
dents currently take either the Route 9
or 19 bus, transfer to Route 16, and then
wait for the arrival of the Route 21 bus
before completing their journey
When the changes are implement-
ed, North Port residents will take either
Route 9 or 26, then transfer to Route 16.
Travel times should be shorter for rid-
ers, according to Beckford. Arrival time
should be earlier also.
"Right now, (riders) get a bus every
two hours," Beckford said. "Who wants
to wait for two hours?"
Beckford said Route 29, which goes
past the Riley Chase Apartments on
Toledo Boulevard, will experience
minor schedule adjustments, such has
a scheduled stop arriving a few minutes
earlier or later. It will not have a trip
removed from its schedule, he said.
Route 20 also will have minor sched-
ule changes.
Employees of Englewood Communi-
ty Hospital will have their needs
addressed if the new bus routes affect
their arrival time, according to Susan
Rachels, marketing manager and hos-
pital spokesperson.
"We have different shifts; we can
accommodate them," she said. Rachels
said she does not know the details
regarding the bus routes but said, "We
operate 24 hours a day, so we're sure we
can (handle) them."
County bus riders can have their
questions answered during four public,
open-house style meetings scheduled
for 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. The first one will
be held Sept. 10 at the North Port
Library, 13800 Tamiami Trail. Other pub-
lic meetings are Sept. 14 at Elsie Quirk
Library, 100W. Dearborn St., Englewood;
Sept. 15 in Sarasota at a place to be
determined; and Sept. 16 at the Venice
Library, 300 S. Nokomis Ave., Venice.

6 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 9,

through Friday, Aug. 14,
for traffic signal adjust-
ments. The exact loca-
tion of the work zone
and lane closure will
change from night to
night.
The removal of old
utility poles may also
trigger intermittent lane
closures at different
points along the corri-
dor.
Weather permitting,
the outside northbound
lane of U.S. 41 on the
bridge spanning Shakett
Creek in Nokomis will be
closed from 10 a.m. to 1
p.m. on Wednesday, Aug.

Sheriff's Office isn't
allowing anyone with
flu-like symptoms to
visit inmates or volun-
teer in the facility until
24 hours after the symp-
toms disappear or seven
days after the illness
began. This is an effort
to reduce the risk of
introducing any influen-
za-like illnesses to the
inmates and staff at the
Sarasota County Jail.
Inmates are screened
during the booking
process. If any flu symp-
toms are present,
inmates are isolated in a
negative-pressure cell
that doesn't circulate air
into the building's venti-
lation system.
The H1N1 virus

Florida Highway Patrol's Be Smart, Drive Smart gets results


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Florida Highway Pa-
trol officers in Central
and South Florida target-
ed aggressive drivers on
July 30-31, the first in a
series of special enforce-
ment campaigns called
Be Smart, Drive Smart
Florida!
The results of the July
effort, in which patrols
focused on specific viola-
tions, were recently
released for FHP Troops
E, F and L, covering from
Bradenton to Vero Beach
and southward to the
Keys.
Troopers issued 2,509
citations: 825 for speed-
ing, 330 for seat belt and


car seat violations and 33
for careless driving.
Sgt. Mark Wysocky,
FHP public affairs officer,
said Troop F, which
includes Sarasota Coun-
ty, issued 250 citations:
150 for speeding, 15 for
careless driving (of those,
11 included a note re-
garding "aggressive dri-
ving") and 89 for seat belt
and car seat violations.
When a trooper stops
someone for a traffic vio-
lation, there is a box on
the citation for the officer
to check if aggressive dri-
ving was involved though
there are no additional
fines or points given for
aggressive driving. In
total, 65 aggressive dri-
vers were identified.


ACCORDING TO FLORIDA STATUTES:
316.1925 Careless Driving Any person operating a vehicle upon the
streets or highways within the state shall drive the same in a careful and pru-
dent manner, having regard for the width, grade, curves, corners, traffic and all
other attendant circumstances, so as not to endanger the life, limb or property
of any person. Failure to drive in such manner shall constitute careless driving
and a violation of this section.
316.1923 Aggressive careless driving Aggressive careless driving
means committing two or more of the following acts simultaneously or in suc-
cession: exceeding the posted speed limit, unsafely or improperly changing
lanes, following another vehicle too closely, failing to yield the right of way,
improperly passing, violating traffic control and signal devices.
315.192 Reckless driving Any person who drives any vehicle in willful or
wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property is guilty of reckless dri-


"We hope that by
checking the box, judges
and magistrates will con-
sider requiring violators
to enroll in a driving
course for aggressive dri-
vers and impose higher


fines on whatever the
original infraction was,"
Wysocky said.
FHP Troop F patrols
Manatee, Hardee, De-
Soto, Highlands, Saraso-
ta, Charlotte, Lee, Collier,


OBITUARIES


Glades and Hendry
counties. Collier County
includes Alligator Alley,
from the west toll to the
east toll, into Broward
County.
In addition to cita-
tions, as part of a state-
wide awareness cam-
paign troopers handed
out thousands of infor-


mational flyers to edu-
cate motorists on the
hazards of distracted dri-
ving.
"The main distrac-
tions right now are cell
phones and texting,"
Wysocky said. "But there
are other distractions,
like people riding in the
car with you."
FHP encourages mo-
torists to call *FHP (*347)
on their cell phones to
report drunk, aggressive
or other dangerous dri-
vers. Callers can remain
anonymous.
Motorists who experi-
ence car trouble on the
highway or who other-
wise need assistance may
also dial *FHP to request
assistance.

OUR VIEW



Turtle's life is no walk on the beach


A s if the odds of sea turtles going
from egg to adulthood aren't
naturally long enough, the little
wigglers also have to cope with man-
made distractions like bright lights
and beach furniture.
To help ease the transition, coastal
counties and cities long ago enacted
regulations to minimize distractions.
For the most part, these have worked.
But there are always problems.
Most often, people simply aren't
aware of turtle-lighting laws. Even if
they are, they may not realize the
lights from their properties could be
causing problems. When they are
told, they usually take the proper
steps. But there are a lot of lights along
the coast, and there is a lot of poten-
tial for problems.
Mote Marine Laboratory last week
reported a rise in the number of just-
hatched sea turtles that have become
disoriented this year. They suspect
the main cause is beach lighting.
As of July 28, at least 1,937 hatch-
lings reportedly lost their way on
beaches stretching from Longboat


Key to Venice. Figures are not yet
compiled for Manasota Key and
Charlotte County, but situations and
problems are often similar along the
coast.
"Having so many disorientations
at the beginning of hatching season
does not bode well for the rest of the
year," said Tony Tucker, the head of
Mote's SeaTurtle Conservation Program.
Lighting laws and other turtle reg-
ulations were established for a good
reason. Southwest Florida is one of
two primary nesting grounds for the
world's loggerhead sea turtle popula-
tion. The reception they receive on
our beaches is critical to the future of
the species.
Turtles navigate by natural
prompts, like moonlight. Unnatural
factors, like house lights, can easily
lead them astray. They wander toward
the dunes, houses and streets instead
of heading toward the Gulf. And they
die.
Local regulations call for all water-
front lights to be shielded or turned
down or away from the water. Grants


have been used to update public
lighting. New street lights on
Manasota Key have shields. The city
of Venice recently got grant money to
improve street lighting at the South
Jetty and other places.
Venice is in the process of updating
its turtle lighting codes, to clarify the
process and bring it up to modern,
model-code standards. This might be
a good time for Charlotte and Sara-
sota also to re-evaluate their codes to
see if they can't be improved.
But code enforcement, by its na-
ture, is often a cumbersome process.
Enforcement is always stretched thin.
And there are a lot of lights out there;
anything that is visible from the
beach is a potential problem.
Experts agree that education is the
key to compliance. It's important for
property owners and visitors to know
turtle protection rules and to take
steps to minimize problems.
Here are some guidelines:
Sea turtle season runs May 1 until
Oct. 31. During that time, do not dis-
rupt nests or annoy turtles it's both


unwise and illegal. Watch them from a
distance. Do not make noise or shine
flashlights on them.
Shield all lights, or turn them off
during the season. Use low-intensity
amber lights. Be very careful with
indoor lights. Close the curtains after
dark. If you have any questions, con-
sult county environmental staff. In
Sarasota County, call 861-5000 for
information. In Charlotte, call (941)
764-4392.
Motel owners need to let their
guests know the rules. Signs and
information sheets in rooms may
work. The same holds for condomini-
um associations.
Do not build bonfires on the
beach. Don't set off fireworks.
Do not allow dogs to roam freely
on the beach. They may disturb nests.
Turtle patrollers say this is a continu-
ing problem on Manasota Key and
the islands.
Remove all beach furniture from
the sand in the evening. Fill in holes.
Be respectful of these flippered vis-
itors. Follow the law.


Let some facts



get in the way


JOHN YUROSKO
GUEST COLUMNIST


The assault on the Venice
Municipal Airport continues
unabated.
A recent letter writer com-
plained about jets. We are all
entitled to our opinions, but
can we disregard reality? Less
than 3 percent of aircraft traffic
in Venice is jet powered. So,
does that make Venice a "jet
port," as some would like to
apply this moniker? Just an-
other attempt to change per-
ception into reality.
The writer also chooses to
forget that discrimination is
illegal, not only in many facets
of our daily lives, but in the uti-
lization of our nation's air-
ports. Any aircraft that can
land at an airport similar to
ours can do so in Venice as
well. Disallowing a jet to oper-
ate is patently illegal unless it
exceeds the capacity of the
runways or its operating enve-
lope limits airport selection -
meaning that a 747 cannot
land at Venice, which, interest-
ingly, some critics have claim-
ed to have happened.
Technological advance-
ments have produced jet-pow-
ered aircraft that are signifi-
cantly quieter than many pis-
ton powered aircraft in use
today, making the noise claim
a moot issue. Certainly, older
aircraft may be noisier than
newer models, but they are
generally being either phased
out or modified to minimize
noise.
The real aim of the letter
writer was simply to add fuel
to the fire to prevent the con-
struction of hangars at the
Venice Jet Center. I can't help
but wonder if this entire con-
troversy could have been elim-


inated had the center been
named the Venice Aviation
Center. Too many have been
erroneously blinded by the
word "Jet."
A hangar is constructed to
protect an aircraft from the
elements, which can be severe
in Florida, as anyone living
here 40 years should under-
stand. The illusion that hangar
construction will be utilized
for jets onlyis purely that. They
will be utilized to protect any
aircraft that may be parked
inside.
Protection and security are
provided by hangars, which
cannot be duplicated on the
ramp. To consider that hangar
construction will only be used
to house jet aircraft is compa-
rable to arguing that some-
one's garage will be used for
automobile storage alone a
pure misconception. If Venice
is purported to be a friendly
city, why should our airport be
any different?
Additionally, the "jet" issue
continues to be used as a cover
to increase attacks on the air-
port and those who utilize it.
Through letters and e-mails to
council and newspapers,
those against the airport have
shown they will use any means
to arouse the public no matter
how erroneous or misguided.
Jet flights are an easy target to
inflame and mislead, and any
inaccurate comment taken at
face value seems to be repeat-
ed over and over until it be-
comes accepted truth.
It is disappointing to hear
continual arguments against
hangar construction atVJC. It's
just another example of using
misconceptions to further the
cause to marginalize one of
our town's finest assets, our
municipal airport.
PS: I have no financial inter-
est in the Venice Jet Center, but
I do believe in Rule No. 13,
which many also seem to dis-
regard, and that is to "do the
right thing."

John J. Yurosko is a long-
time Venice-area resident and
former member of the city's
Airport Advisory Board.

There went the neighborhood

Trailer trash. Several weeks ago a fire took place in a trailer in
Nokomis. This trailer has been used by squatters. They appear to
be a gang or drug addicts. There's no water, there's no electricity.
They have utilized neighbors' water, stolen water, broken into
sheds, used washing machines. When you drive by and look in
their direction, they will flip you off. The police say their hands
are tied, that it is a foreclosed property and the person who
owned the property is in Texas. I have talked with several police
officers about this. I've called the code department, called the
department of health; both have responded, but they're still
there. What can be done to protect the neighborhood?


Dial tones. I'm definitely
against drivers using cell
phones. I have seen so many
close calls on the road, and you
have to be so careful. The first
thing they do when they get in
the car, they don't start the car,
they go straight to their cell
phones. They're all wagging
their mouths off and not pay-
ing attention in the parking
lots. I've seen many parking lot
accidents. You have to be a
defensive driver on the road.
As soon as you see a driver
using a cell phone, you have to
start using your head. I believe
they cause so many accidents
nationwide that it should be
banned in Florida, definitely.
Leave 'em in. No, I would
not vote for a recall of the
council members. What we
have now are a bunch of sore-
head losers from the last elec-
tion. They're not doing the
greatest job in the world, but at
least they're moving. They're
going to make mistakes; the
ones before them did.
Quick hook. I'm a county
resident and I've lived here
since 1955 and I would defi-
nitely back the recall of the
members of the Venice City
Council. Get'em out of there as
soon as possible.
Close call. I definitely agree
that driving, cell phones and
texting are a deadly mix. How
many more accidents and
deaths must occur before all


Let 'em


Have It


states outlaw them with a large
penalty? Young drivers are
known to have the most acci-
dents anyway and those items
only make a bad situation
worse.
A young driver was coming
up from the rear very fast
when I had to apply my brakes
for a yellow light. I could see in
my mirror that he was using
his cell phone. As I braced for a
collision at the last minute, he
veered off into a ditch. As I sat
in my car waiting for the green
light, he got out, looked over
and gave me the finger. Thank-
fully, neither he nor I was hurt,
but his using the cell phone
could easily have caused two


or even more deaths right
there.
Brevity, please. The items
in your Let'em Have It column
are getting much too long. You
tell people to try to keep it
short. I never seen such long-
winded baloney in my life.
Keep it short. That's what
makes it interesting.
Tooth decay. I very much
resent my experience in trying
to locate a Venice dentist who
is willing to employ a reason-
able maintenance schedule
without insisting on far-too-
frequent routine X-rays, teeth
whitening, implants and cos-
metic dental work.
The older patients need a
maintenance program that is
affordable. I'm fed up with
offices that look like art gal-
leries with floor covering far
more opulent than my own at
home, every conceivable gad-
get that inflates the dentist's
ego and untold advertising
expenses.
Maybe it's time for social-
ized dental services. If anyone
has an answer to this, please
let me know.
Black and white. Thank
you, Let'em Have It. I would
support the recall of our city
council. I would support the
impeachment of our mayor. I
think their actions and atti-
tudes are a disgrace. The Sun-
shine suit should have been
settled months and months
ago. The fact that our mayor
continues to operate in "gray
areas," as he puts it, and then is
not around to face the music
for what he's done, is a dis-
grace.
Sue Lang is a disgrace for
her continued efforts to thwart
any attempt to get the airport
fiasco settled, and our council
continues to hire attorneys
and disregard their opinions as
to exactly what we should do.
They're a disgrace and we
should have them all removed.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Target the people


who need help

Editor:
I recently spent some time in Canada and did my
own straw poll of the wonderful Canadian health-care
system that our current politicians want to force on
Americans. These are my findings.
The taxes Canada imposes on its citizens are off the
charts compared to what the United States imposes
on its citizens, and what good have they done? In a
recent article in the Globe and Mail, Canada's leading
newspaper, it was pointed out that even with the
heavy tax burden on its citizens, the unfunded liabili-
ty of the Canadian Medicare at $365 billion. That will
seem puny compared to the cost of nationalizing the
U.S. health-care system.
The U.S. health-care system is the most efficient
system in the world. Our hospitals look like five-star
hotels and have the best high-tech equipment money
can buy. Canadian hospitals look like a Motel 6 with
barely enough modern high-tech equipment to ser-
vice all their citizens. That's why the wait for medical
care in Canada can be months or even years.
Why not simply expand the government-run
Medicare and Medicaid systems that are already in
place to include those citizens who have no health-
care benefits? Americans who need these benefits
during job transition, etc., could simply be charged an
annual fee based on a graduating scale tied to their
current family income, which the Internal Revenue
Service already has a record of.
After all, most Americans who have employee-
sponsored health care must contribute toward their
plan, which includes a co-payment and a deductible.

Obama is doing
his 'level' worst
Editor:
As America begins to
witness the slow unravel-
ing of the Obama presi-
dency, the flaws of "level-
ing the playing field"
become overwhelmingly
apparent it takes a
boatload of bucks to sup-
port an entire segment of
the United States who
refuse to be a participant
on that playing field.
Hurricane Katrina not
only exposed FEMA and
Louisiana's government
officials as impotent, it
also revealed to America
which citizens who are
completely dependent
on federal, state and local
funds for their existence,
showing no shame or
remorse in expecting tax-
payers to care for them.
The recent home
mortgage loan catastro-
phe that almost resulted
in a worldwide financial
collapse can be laid at the
door of the Community
Reinvestment Act, whose
sole purpose was to
obtain home loans for
unqualified minorities
who believed it was their
right as part of the lev-
eling of the playing field
- to own a home.
The $787 billion "stim-
ulus" program is a failure
because the majority of
the funds have been des-
ignated for entitlement
programs rather than the
intended creation of jobs
- more leveling.
Now we are all expect-
ed to forfeit the greatest
health-care system in the
world so every American
can enjoy the "right" to
be insured.
Vision through partisan
blinders aside, it should be
obvious that America can-
not exist strapped to an
agenda that bestows the
bounty of the American
Dream on people unwill-
ing to participate in that
achievement.
The harsh reality is, we


all become
attempting t(
playing field.

Free room costs $99
Editor:
A law against visita-
tion for more than nine
days at a time caused my
grandson to receive a $99
ticket because he didn't
realize nor did I it is
against Florida law to not
change your address if
you are staying some-
where else in this lovely
tourist state of ours.
He was staying in our
home in Englewood for a
few days a week due to a
work program he is in-
volved in in Venice. He
returns to his legal ad-
dress in North Port, usu-
ally on a Friday, and
comes back here on Mon-
day afternoon. Some-
times this reckless young
man may even go over the
edge of the law and stay
seven days, just daring
Sarasota County sheriffs
to try to catch him.
He helps us with yard
work and other things we
can no longer do on our
own. For this he will be
going to court and I will be
right there alongside him.
This is just another ri-
diculous law to raise
funds for the sheriff's of-
fice. He also received two
other tickets for dark tint
on his windows, which he
was in the process of
removing. My question is,
wouldn't have one ticket
sufficed? Not according to
Sarasota County two
more $99 tickets. See you
in court.
Beware Florida visi-
tors, beware.

It's un-American to
undermine elections
Editor:
I voted for Ed Martin
and his sensible-growth
party to get my city on
the Gulf out of the hands
of friends of the develop-
ers, and so did the major-
ity of you. They won the
election fair and square.
That's the American way.
What's not the Amer-
ican way is the powerful
trying to put the skids
under a legally elected
mayor and council mem-
bers. I believe our mayor


and council members
Zavodnyik and Lang to
be honest people who
honestly made a mistake
in using their e-mails.
I also believe that the
big business interests who
couldn't get their candi-
dates elected honestly in
the last election were lying
in wait for the mayor and
council members to make
a mistake. Think about it: If
their intent was criminal,
would they have used
their e-mail?
If I were the mayor, I
would watch my back. It's
not paranoia; they are
out to get you.

Make an example
of them
Editor:
Pope John Paul per-
sonally told President
Bush that a unilateral
attack on Iraq, a nation
that did no harm to the
United States, would be
illegal, immoral and a
mistake. Bush and Che-
ney should be made to
pay for the slaughter of
Americans and innocent
Iraquis as an example to
the presidents who will
follow.

Obama is the culprit
Editor:
In answer to Alicia
Simmons' recent letters
to the editor, Obama is
the one destroying this
country. He has taken
over everything in our
country and is trying for
more everyday.
Obama and his admin-
istration are the cause of
all the turmoil going on in
this country today, and the
right-wingers on TV and
radio are giving us the true
news, because the mass
media are in the tank for
Obama.
Obama and his admin-
istration are the cause of
our destruction in pro-
gress. America had better
wake up soon. In 2010, it
will be time to throw the
bums out of office. Until
then, someone must keep
fanning the flames.

the best: Marry a rich,
retired man of my age
and let him take care of
me. I guess not; the com-
petition is too keen, and
love, not security, is more
my style.
Having business expe-
rience in strategic plan-
ning, I used the "S.WO.T"
method of decision mak-
ing (strengths, weak-
nesses, opportunities,
threats). I took out a legal
pad and began to write.
What strengths in liv-
ing quarters will I need if
I buy a house? Small,
easy to get from room to
room, compact kitchen
to "feel" where hot and
cold things are, bedroom
where the TV can be at
arm's length, bathroom
accessories and handles
that don't drip or slip,
bright lighting through-
out.
What are weaknesses
of buying? If my low
vision deteriorates too
fast, maybe I should rent
in case I need to have
more assistance in living
quarters. I have wonder-
ful family members who
would take me in, but I
would lose my indepen-
dence. I'd be at their
mercy every day. Mainly,
I would need to move
wherever they move.
Also, who would give me
a mortgage?
What opportunities
are out there? Ideally, it
would be fun to put


together four ladies like
the Golden Girls, pool
our monies, hire house-
keepers and share in
cooking. We could even
afford a driver to take us
around town. I could
travel with people who
would know my situa-
tion.
And finally, what are
the threats? During my
emotional stage a year
ago, everything was a
threat the threat of
falling over something
was a great fear. Fear of
people looking at me like
I was disabled threat-
ened my confidence and
clouded my reason.
Thanks to professional
help and group therapy, I
am over that phase.
I bought a cute little
cottage home in South
Venice after all. I am near
my friends, the stores are
within a mile or so, I can
walk to the South Venice
community center where
I still volunteer as chair of
the Beach Endowment
Trust, and the Venetian
Waterway Trail gives me
needed exercise life is
good.
Happiness is acquir-
ing a 30-year mortgage at
the age of 75.

Arne Kruithof, owner of the
Florida Flight Training Center.
Walia lent FFTC $200,000 to
purchase two small aircraft,
earning him an interest in the
business. He promoted the
school abroad, attracting
many students from India.
"I brought in 52 students in
2007 for pilot training," Walia
said. "Each one of them spent
$45,000 to $52,000 in Venice over
six to seven months' time."
Fizzled
Walia figures he helped
bring $3 million into the local
economy. He's proud of the

fact that India's youngest
female pilot graduated from
the Venice flight school.
"They lived here, shopped
here, ate at downtown restau-
rants, walked or biked or used
the SCAT (bus) system, so they
weren't polluting the area with
automobiles," he said. "They
were peace-loving people. Well
dressed, well presented.
"They represented us well.
Some are bringing their par-
ents here ... with an interest in
purchasing a vacation home in

around the world telling peo-
ple what Venice is about."
When the economy fizzled,
however, so did the business,
and with it Walia's dream of
owning a flight school.


Kruithof paid back $75,000
of the $200,000 loan, Walia
said, but stopped payments
almost a year ago.
Walia said he was forced to
file suit after Kruithof stopped


even paying interest on the
loan. Kruithof did not return a
telephone call on Friday from
the Gondolier Sun.
"It has been 10 months now
since the last student left. My
students have all gone," Walia
said. 'Aviation is slow every-
where."
Walia said he wanted to dis-
close the information to head
off any "misinformation"
about his role at the airport.
The airport has been a polariz-
ing topic in the community,
spilling over into the last two
council elections.

nests out of a total of 381
nests laid since sea turtle
nesting season began
May 1.
The season continues
through Oct. 31.
While new nests might
appear in the next few
weeks, most sea turtle
activity will involve the
young hatchlings' race
into the relative safety of
the Gulf of Mexico and
their efforts to be the
ones lucky enough reach
sexual maturity some 30
or so years. Statistically,
about one in 2,000 will
make it to the age when it
can reproduce, with
females returning to their
hatchling beach to lay
eggs so the cycle of life
can repeat.
Experts such as Tucker
believe that darker beach-
es improve the odds.
Shielding lights that shine
on the beach and turning
off lights in nearby
homes and condos are
important.
Floodlights on one
Casey Key building cast
light on a 1.4-mile stretch
of beach, illuminating as
many as 100 nests
recently, Tucker said.
Sea turtle shields
A U.S. Fish and Wild-
life Service grant will
fund the installation of
light shields on 38 Florida
Power & Light poles from
an area near Sharky's On
The Pier to the south,
north to 1585 Tarpon
Center Drive, at Jetty
Villas in Venice. There are
11 lights to be shielded
on Tarpon Center Drive.
The additional lights
are all in coastal streets
such as The Esplanade at
Ormond and Barcelona,
the North Venice Beach
parking lot, the South Es-
planade and South Beach
parking lot, Granada,


Alhambra, six on Golden
Beach Boulevard, four at
Service Club Park, four at
Sharky's and one at the
site of the old Island
Wastewater Treatment
Plant south of Sharky's.
Following acceptance
of the $9,500 grant by city
council, the funds must
be expended by Sept. 30.
Most of the specified
lights had been turned
off during sea turtle sea-
son. Last year that made
for some unhappy resi-
dents at Bahia Vista and
other condominiums.
The county enforces
ordinances on beaches
from Manasota Beach
north to Lido. Longboat
Key and Venice have
their own regulations
and enforcement proce-
dures.
Ordinance revision
Venice is in the midst
of reworking its 1995
lighting ordinance. Tuck-
er said the first draft has
been returned from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commis-
sion to the Environmen-
tal Task Force established
by city council.
"We suggested sub-
stantial changes in the


wording to make it more
effective and enforce-
able," said Megan Koper-
ski of the conservation
commission.
The Sea Turtle Light-
ing Ordinance will re-
place the former ordi-
nance. The intention is to
bring the new ordinance
in line with state and
county marine turtle
protection ordinances as
well ordinances in Char-
lotte County, Volusia
County and the town of
Longboat Key. Some
parts of the city of Sani-
bel Code of Ordinances
have also been studied.
Public comments were
invited June 26 at a task
force meeting in council
chambers.
The next step is for the
city's task force to study
the comments from the
FWC. It also will be stud-
ied by city staff and the
city attorney and be dis-
cussed at two additional
public hearings prior to
its adoption sometime
before the beginning of
the 2010 season.
Fines for violations
could reach as much as
$1,000 per day but, his-

sent out and corrections
are made. Ignorance of
the law is the biggest
problem. Streetlights and
lights at Sharky's have
been other problem
areas but the new light
shields are expected to
address those issues.
Background
Southwest Florida
beaches are home to the
largest nesting popula-
tion of loggerhead sea
turtles along Gulf of Mex-
ico beaches, according to
a press release from Mote.
Classified as "threatened"
according to federal law,
loggerheads are occa-
sionally joined by endan-
gered green and, in this
area, rare Kemps Ridley
species. Both nested in
the Venice area this sea-
son.
No matter the variety,
hatchlings tend to seek
the brightest light. If the
beach is dark, the sea,
illuminated by moon
and star, lures them to
relative safety. Other
types of lighting confuse
the creatures, who could
then end up in harm's
way, crushed by the
wheels of a car in a park-
ing lot or eaten by a rac-


coon or shore bird while
wandering in the wrong
direction. Turtles have
ended up such man-
made obstacles as pools
and storm drains, where
they usually die before
they can be rescued.
Mote scientists fear
that if this season's dis-
orientation numbers
continue, the total will
surpass last season's
record 113 nests in the
county, fourth in the
state. As West Coast Flor-
ida beaches have far
fewer nests than East
Coast beaches, the num-
ber of disorientations is
more alarming to scien-
tists.
Venice-area nests are
monitored by volunteers
from Mote Marine La-
boratory and by mem-
bers of the Coastal Wild-
life Club.
Only trained volun-
teers operating under a
permit from the wildlife
commission may touch a
sea turtle or nest.
What to do
Keeping the beach
clear of lounge chairs
and the like, plus closing
curtains at night, is help-
ful. So is filling in holes


made by digging at the
beach and knocking
down sand castles, if any.
Sarasota County En-
vironmental Specialist
Keri Ferenc Nelson said
residents can help by
lowering and shielding
lights and using bulbs
with "long" light wave-
lengths (red, orange and
dark amber) in fixtures.
Metal flashing found at
hardware stores is an
inexpensive material to
use for shielding lights,
she said. Do not use
flashlights or fishing
lamps on the beach at
night during turtle sea-

North Port ER job fair attracts hundreds


BY ANNE
KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER
Wearing gray scrub
pants and a matching
Betty Boop-printed scrub
shirt, Phyllis Coviello of
Venice waited for her
chance to speak with a
Sarasota Memorial Hos-
pital human resources
representative during a
recent job fair at the new
North Port ER. A regis-
tered radiological tech-
nologist, Coviello cur-
rently works two jobs.
"I'd like to just work
one," she said. "I've been
watching this facility ...
and I've been waiting and
calling to see when they
were going to start hiring
here."
Coviello, who current-
ly drives to Bradenton for
one of her part-time jobs,
was one of hundreds to
attend the job fair at the
new North Port ER, hop-
ing to be interviewed for
one of 35 open positions.
Organizers estimated 200
came in the first half-
hour alone, and expected
to see about 400 job seek-
ers by the fair's end.
"We've been getting
calls about this facility for
the past year," said North
Porter Karen Gentry, a
human resources consul-
tant at SMH. "We've got
some really good candi-
dates."
Nancy Angelo Finzar,
the clinical manager of
the ER, said they were
looking for "multi-skilled
techs" and nurses and
technicians with ER
backgrounds and "very,
very high qualifications."
But that didn't stop
people with nonmedical
backgrounds from seek-
ing employment.
Tim Peek and Bernard
Kuras drove down from
Sarasota. Peek was look-
ing for a clerical position,
and Kuras recently re-
ceived his security li-
cense. Both men were
told to file their resumes
online, which they had
already done.
Finzar said with the
difficult economic times,
it wasn't surprising to see
so many nonmedical
applicants.


LATE from Page 1A
there a few years and had
been wonderful tenants."
Adnan Zaid had called
Mid-State telling them
that he needed addition-
al fuel for an increased
number of customers
due to a nearby station
having trouble with its
pumps.
"This isn't unusual,"
Tingle said. "Because of
his long tenure, we sent
the fuel down there."
Mid-State delivered
more than 40,100 gallons
of fuel to the site.
To make matters
worse, Mid-State isn't the
only casualty. There was a
Dunkin' Donuts fran-
chise and a Subway lo-
cated in the convenience
store.
"They all lost their
jobs," Tingle said. "We
hope to get those two
franchises back when we
have a new tenant."
Tingle said the fact
that the state attorney is
willing to prosecute this
is a first for Mid-State. In
other instances, the cases
have always been civil
matters.
"We are very thankful
to the state attorney,"
Tingle said. "We have only
125 locations throughout
Florida, so we feel the loss
immediately."

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL


Venice preparing for opener differently


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Just like nearly every team in the state,
Venice is playing its first game in less than
three weeks.
However, unlike most, Venice's game
counts as a regular-season game.
The other teams are playing Kickoff
Classic games, which are primarily prac-
tice games, to get them ready for the reg-
ular season.
But this isn't just any other game for
the Indians.
This game, which features some of the
top talent in the country, will pit Venice
against nationally ranked Oscar Smith
High in Chesapeake, Va., on national tele-
vision.
The 7 p.m. game will be aired live on
ESPNU.
The Indians only have 10 games this
year unlike most teams, which will play
11 games including Kickoff Classic.


Since Venice doesn't have a practice
game (Kickoff Classic) to work out the
kinks, the Indians coaching staff has to
prepare this year's team differently.
"We got to be real detail oriented as
coaches," Venice head coach John
Peacock said. "One of the big things is
effort to ball on defense. Looking back, it
takes us three games to get where we
want to be on defense. We can't afford
that. We have to make sure that's done
during two-a-days (practices)."
According to Peacock, he isn't so much
concerned about preparing "them as far
as a game plan goes."
"I'm concerned about kids that haven't
had game experience and don't know
game speed and don't know what effort
to the ball really means yet," Peacock
said. "Hopefully they will learn what
effort to the ball means before we play."
Venice opens practice at 7 a.m.
Monday. The first of two-a-day practices
will end at 10 a.m. and the Indians will


pick back up with a second practice from
6 p.m. to dusk.
The two-a-day practices will be held
from Aug. 10-14. The Indians will play a
scrimmage at 7 a.m. Aug. 15 then have
varsity picture day at 11 a.m.
Venice will have one practice on Aug.
17 and 19 and two practices a day on Aug.
18 and 20. The Indians will play a scrim-
mage at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 21.
NOTE:
The reason why Venice's Aug. 28 game
against Oscar Smith High in Chesapeake,
Va., was moved to ESPNU was the net-
work executives decided to televise
Aplington-Parkersburg's first game since
the longtime Iowa head coach was shot
and killed by a former player over the
summer.
Aplington-Parkersburg is scheduled to
play Dike-New Hartford on ESPN.

Ringling Museum director resigns unexpectedly


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Fans and associates of the
John and Mable Ringling
Museum of Art were stunned
Tuesday by the news that its
popular director, John Wet-
enhall, had resigned his post
"to move on to pursue other
challenges."
Wetenhall is said to have
removed his things from his
office Tuesday. Prior to that he
was in meetings in Tallahassee,
presumably with administra-
tors of the Florida State Uni-
versity, which took over the
responsibility of overseeing
the "State Museum of Florida"
in 2000, creating the largest
museum/university complex
in the country.
When Wetenhall arrived at
the Ringling in 2001 after six
years as director of Nashville's
Cheekwood Museum of Art, he
found a museum loaded with
challenges. Despite one of the
most valuable collections of
art in the country, neglect was
obvious everywhere.
Most notable was an en-
dowment barely larger than
the $1.5 million left by John
Ringling on his death. After 70
years, it was valued at just $2
million.
Also long ignored was
Ringling's former winter home,


Ca d'Zan. Its windows were
broken. The roof leaked and its
back terrace was in danger of
falling into the bay.
The Circus Museum was as
plain as when the museum's
first director, A. Everett "Chick"
Austin, had created it from
John Ringling's personal col-
lection of circus memorabilia.

Growth
After Wetenhall arrived, the
"House of John" was closed for
six years while more than $15
million in repairs were under-
taken. Most of the money went
for the bare
essentials,
such as a new
security sys-
tem, air con- ,
ditioning and
humidifica-
tion systems
and, finally,
repairs and
restoration Wetenhall
work.
This past year, the house
was featured in the Rizzoli
book, "The Great Houses of
Florida," and its curator, Ron
McCarty, was invited to write
the introduction to the book.
Under Wetenhall's watch,
the museum also blossomed.
Today, the new Tibbals
Learning Center and its 3,800-
square-foot Howard Bros.

museum."

miniature circus, Howard Tib-
bals' personal collection of cir-
cus posters and other items sit
next to the old museum. The
Ringling also received some
$10 million from Tibbals, a
Knoxville flooring manufac-
turer.
This year, the Wisconsin,
the first private rail car used by
the Ringlings, was installed in
the original museum, com-
pleting a legacy.
A new visitor center opened
two years ago. It houses the
restored Asolo Theater, which
was brought from Italy by
Austin and soon became the
first home of today's Asolo
Repertory Company, the Sara-
sota Opera and the Sarasota
Ballet.
The Searing Gallery was
added to the art museum re-
cently and the museum re-
ceived its largest grant ever -
a multi-tiered gift from Asian
art collector Dr. Helga Wall-


Apelt, founder of Sarasota's
former Museum of Asian Art.
Including a $4 million gift to
the museum's endowment
fund, $4 million for expansion
and the promised gift of her
vast collection of jade and
related Asian art and other
promised gifts, the total value
of her gift has been estimated
by university officials at some
$50 million.
More than $150 million in
capital gifts and grants came to
the museum these past eight
years and an endowment fund
was finally established with
some $55 million in donations
expressly identified for that
fund.

Fiscal responsibility
As director of the museum
complex, Wetenhall, who
holds an master's degree in
business administration in
addition to a Ph.D., earned 16
Davis Productivity Awards for


efficient management, saving
the university a total of $3.25
million, a university press
release stated.
Wetenhall, a board mem-
ber of the American Asso-
ciation of Museums, chair of
the college and university
committee of the Association
of Art Museum Directors and
board member of the United
States National Committee
of the International Council
of Museums, put the muse-
um on the international
map.
Hundreds of museum di-
rectors and curators found
their way to the museum in
recent years. The number and
quality of special exhibitions
increased exponentially.
"He was wonderfully sup-
portive of the museum," Mc-
Carty said, echoing the view-
point of many colleagues.
Marshall Rousseau, a mem-
ber of the museum's board,
and former executive director
of the Salvador Dali Museum
in St. Petersburg, was named
interim director.

ad officers


There are six new recruits in the Venice Police Department. Four of them are
from the last two academy classes and ranked Nos. 1 and 2 in their respective
classes. The other two recruits come from law enforcement backgrounds in
Michigan and Colorado.
"I'm all smiles," said Venice Police Department Chief Julie Williams. "I'm just
so pleased with our new officers."
Williams said she looks for more than the right qualifications when hiring
new officers. They also have to be a good fit with the department and the com-
munity.
"What's cool about this


group is that we "
have a nice mixture of fresh-into-the-line-of-work,
so they are raring to go," she said. "'Adding the others who have been in the
field elsewhere gives us a nice balance, which is what I'm trying to strike."
Williams said she never wants an agency that is stacked on one side or
the other, and she's looking for officers who will be with the agency long
term.
"We're not looking to bring someone on board for two or three
or even five years," she said. "We want people in for the long haul,
in fairness to the community."
The new hires were possible because of Williams' experience
in hiring and her focus on strategy, coupled with the city being
cautious in budgeting.
"It's an absolute coup for us," Williams said. "The police depart-
ments I'm always competing against couldn't hire, except the sher-
iff's office, so we got to the recruits first."


The timing was excellent, Williams said, because the VPD is at
he recommended staffing level and the workload continues to increase.
"I just can't go down any more officers," she said. "Everyone here has more on their
late than we used to."

he recruits
The four new academy recruits are Gaetano (Guy) Castiglione, Jake Barlow, Mathew
pronounced Mat-hew) Sauchinitz and Keith Quick.
Rodney Schooley is the recruit from Michigan, and Angela Gay is from Colorado
nd more recently Charlotte County.
When new officers are hired by theVPD, regardless of their expe-
rience, they go through three weeks of the VPD's post-academy

training.
The training was cre-
ated by Sgts. Joe White-
head and Troy Crepeau
eight years ago.
"When new people
started, we wanted them
to have as much training
as possible, focusing on
things like how to per-
form on the job as well as
the law," Whitehead said.
"The training focuses on
high liabilities and defen-
sive tactics."
Instructors White-
head, master patrolman
and instructor Daniel
Whittaker and Paul Joyce,
marine patrol officer and
driving instructor, are
pleased with the recruits
and their eagerness to
embrace their careers.
"They want to be
here," Whitehead said.
"They ask lots of ques-
tions and they want to
take everything we teach
them and become good
officers."
Indeed, Barlow said he
enjoyed the academy, but
he especially likes this
phase of his training.
"I like learning how to
apply what we learned in
the academy," he said.
As for his career goals,
Barlow said they aren't
grandiose.
"My ambitions are not
as glorified as CSI," he
said. "I want to stop drunk
drivers and get the old
lady's cat out of the tree."
Making a difference
As for Castiglione, he
didn't want a desk job.
"I've wanted to be a

a kid," he said. "I like to
be out and about and I
like meeting people."
Schooley, 41, who has
several years of law en-
forcement experience,
also likes helping people.
"I like knowing what I
do makes a difference,"
he said.
Sauchinitz agreed.
"I like to serve. I like
the structure," he said. "I
want to do the job and
not let anyone down."


Gay has a 7-year-old
daughter, twin 5-year-old
daughters and a hus-
band who works in Char-
lotte County Corrections.
Gay also worked Char-
lotte County Corrections
until the opening with
the VPD came up.
In Colorado, where
she is from, officers are
required to spend one
year in corrections, but
Gay stayed longer be-
cause she thought the ex-


perience would be help-
ful to her. Part of what
she learned was how to
talk with people.
"When I stop some-
one, I always introduce
myself," she said. "There
is no reason to be disre-
spectful to the person we
have stopped. We don't
want to add to their dis-
comfort."


Quick echoed Gay's
thoughts.
"Don't be afraid," he
said. "We're here to help."
Quick has a wife and
two sons a 5-year-old
and a 1-year-old.
His decision to leave
an architectural firm he'd
worked with for six years
to enter law enforcement
met with mixed family

"My parents are a little

MANIPULATIVE, IN THE

BEST SENSE OF THE WORD


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
Much of chiropractic treatment
involves "spinal manipulation," a high-
velocity thrust that chiropractors deliver
by hand. The intent is to move a joint
beyond its normal range of motion but
not beyond the range that it was
designed to handle. This has the effect of
providing more room for nerves to exit
the spine, relaxing the muscles by virtue
of stretching them suddenly, breaking up
adhesions or scar tissue to keep the spine


flexible, and/or moving displaced
vertebrae back in place. To determine
which vertebrae need to be adjusted, the
chiropractor feels the joints of the spine
while at rest and in motion. Once the
determination is made, the manipulation
is delivered manually using one of a
number of specific techniques.

P.S. Spinal manipulation has been
documented as far back as the time of
Hippocrates and the ancient Egyptians.


that is performed as a result of and within 72 hours of responding to the advertisement for the free, discounted fee, or reduced fee service, examination, or treatment.

Heathrow Express considers

PHOTO COURTESY OF HEATHROW EXPRESS
Through the end of August children travel free on the Heathrow or Gatwick Express trains
into London's Paddington and Victoria stations. Tickets must be booked in advance
online.


FROM HEATHROW
EXPRESS


Carbon Voyage
Heathrow and
Gatwick Express have
launched the first envi-
ronmentally friendly
door-to-door service to
and from the airport
with Carbon Voyage.
Travelers can book a
pickup from either their
home or office in a
Carbon Voyage car and
travel to Paddington or
Victoria stations where
they will board the
express train service to
Heathrow or Gatwick
airports.
This new integrated
service, also booked
online, means cus-
tomers will only need to
make one booking to
arrange a Carbon Voyage
vehicle and train ticket.
Train tickets will be sent
electronically to the cus-
tomers, saving postage
and paper.
"From an environ-
mental perspective, this
new service will assist in


taking cars off the road,
reducing congestion and
more importantly the
pollution caused from
the 5 million people per
year that use taxis and
minicabs to travel to and
from Heathrow and
Gatwick airports," said
James Swanston of
Carbon Voyage. "The
average taxi trip from
Paddington to Heathrow
is approximately 6.2 kg
of C02 emissions as
opposed to 1.4 kg using
a train."
George Fripp, account
manager for Heathrow
and Gatwick Express
added, "We wanted to
optimize our offering
and provide a best-in-
class service and assis-
tance to our travelers.
This product is applica-
ble not just to our U.K.
customers as it can be
booked online; it is just
as relevant for interna-
tional travelers coming
into the UK."
Jonny Goldstone of
Green Tomato Cars
(www.greentomatocars.
com), London's largest

Americans urged to broaden


outlooks with travel


BY ELLEN CREAGER
DETROIT FREE PRESS

We caught up by phone with travel
expert Rick Steves at a hotel in Slo-
venia, where he's taping the sixth sea-
son of "Rick Steves' Europe" for PBS
and talking about his new book, "Trav-
el as a Political Act." His new message?
Travel is worthwhile only if you leave
your comfort zone.
Q: Do you ever run out of places in Europe
to talk about?
A: I've not done a show that feels
like it's reruns. This year we are doing
places like Bosnia and Montenegro in
the former Yugoslavia, and Galicia and
Basque country in Spain. Plus, Europe
keeps expanding. And American trav-
elers are getting more sophisticated in
their knowledge of Europe, so we can
do a more thoughtful and focused
show.
Q: How many guidebooks have you writ-
ten?
A: I've written 30 guidebooks, and
about 20 of them are updated every
year.
Q: "Travel as a Political Act" (Nation, $18.95)
isn't a guidebook, and it's in the first-person.
Why write it?
A: When I look back, I've seen 30
years of evolution in my work as a
travel teacher. The first part was teach-
ing people how to travel on a budget.
The second part was getting people
excited to appreciate the art and cul-
ture of Europe. Finally, on top of that, I
now am teaching how to travel in a
way that broadens your perspective,
challenges your ethnocentricity and
with a mindset that doesn't fear diver-
sity.
Q: You travel to places the average person
wouldn't go on his own, like Iran. Isn't hedo-
nism or plain old relaxation a good enough
reason to travel?
A: I have no problem with hedo-
nism. But it's not fundamentally travel.
Alot of people go to Mazatlan and lose
an opportunity to go to Nicaragua.
They go to Hawaii again when they
could go to Morocco. My best experi-
ences have been in places where peo-
ple wouldn't want to go. I feel sorry for
people who go to Orlando every year.
I'm not saying your cruise or vaca-
tion is wrong. I'm just saying it doesn't
broaden your perspective. It is instruc-
tive for Americans to broaden their
perspectives just now. We're only 4 per-
cent of this planet. We don't want to be
eclipsed by everyone else.


Q: In the book, you describe feeling guilty
about some advice you've given. You describe
a scene in Morocco seeing a bus tour group
walking warily through the streets while you
were having a great time on your own.
A: I was in Morocco having the
most glorious time of my life. I was on
a travel high. Then, I looked at this
group and it reminded me of a self-im-
posed hostage crisis. And I realized I
had been recommending for years to
take a group tour in Morocco. Now
things have changed there. As a travel
writer I have a responsibility not to
perpetuate a 10-year-old stereotype
that it is dangerous.
Q: How long does it take you to get a han-
dle on the atmosphere of a place?
A: You have to cut through the pab-
lum and see something meaningful. I
like to talk to people, because it's dan-
gerous to make sweeping generaliza-
tions. It doesn't matter as much what I
think as what the local people say.
Q: Isn't it safer to stick to traditional topics
like food or scenery?
A: Anytime I write about certain
areas, people get mad. I can't write
about Turkey without angering
Armenians or Greeks. I can't write
about Greeks without angering Turks.
With our Iran show, I said, "I'm not
going there like I'm on '60 Minutes.'"
But gays and Baha'is and Israelis still
weren't happy. But you've got to be
bold. I try to be accurate and not divi-
sive. I try to humanize a place.
Q: You've spent almost a third of your life
traveling overseas. Do you ever think of just
moving to Europe?
A: When I get back home (to Seattle)
the first thing I want to do is to go out
and have breakfast. And I'm glad to be
home. And I'm thankful. But my job is
not to make Americans feel good
about their country. Some people
think I'm anti-American. I'm not. I'm
so pro-American. But I expect a lot of
our country.
Q: Like what?
A: When you travel, you understand
the ripple effect of what we do that has
an impact on the rest of the world. You
realize this planet is filled with equally
precious children of God. If you don't
travel, it's easy to dehumanize people
far away.
If I can inspire people to broaden
their perspective, that's what I want. I
consider myself a tour guide still.

Travel Q&A: ID for a Seattle-Alaska cruise


BY KRISTIN JACKSON
THE SEATTLE TIMES

Q: We are going on a
cruise from Seattle to Alaska.
Our last stop is in Victoria,
B.C. Do we need a passport to
enter or leave the ship there?
S.K., Omaha
A: New rules took
effect on June 1 that
require more standard-
ized ID for crossing
land/sea borders
between the United
States and Canada. In
general, travelers must
have a passport, pass-
port card, an enhanced
driver license (only avail-
able in a few states) or
one of the "trusted trav-
eler" cards for pre-
screened travelers.
However, there are some
exceptions plus some
confusion in regard to
cruises.
For "closed-loop" sail-
ings such as Seattle-
Alaska cruises that
depart and return to the
same U.S. port, U.S. offi-
cials say that a passport
or one of the new alter-
native documents isn't
required that a birth
certificate and govern-
ment-issued photo ID,
such as a driver license,
are sufficient (those doc-
uments are needed to
prove both a traveler's
identity and citizenship).
However, some cruise
lines strongly urge cruise
passengers to have pass-
ports. So check and
double-check -with
your cruise line. (And
you must have ID even if
you're not planning to

ing land/sea borders.

get off the ship in Victor-
ia.)
You can get informa-
tion on the new rules,
and how to obtain a
passport or passport
card, in a recent article
of mine.
Go to www.seattle
times.com and search
for: Kristin Jackson and
passports.
My advice: Given the
confusion over ID
requirements for Seattle-
Alaska cruises, go ahead
and get the passport
card (good for land/sea

It's cheaper than a pass-
port, and you'd need it if
you ever took a driving
trip to Canada. But if you
think you might take a
flight anywhere out of
the U.S. in the coming
years, get the traditional
passport, which works
for all international trav-
el.

FINE WHINES

Stay away from my ox


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


Six months into Barack Obama's
presidency, we are getting the same
kind of letters to the editor we did when
George Bush was commander in chief.
The only difference is the names: The
people who wrote in to defend Bush are
attacking Obama, and vice versa.
On its face, that's not surprising.
Most Bush bashers would have sup-
ported Obama in the election and, at
the very least, would be giving him
the benefit of the doubt at this point
in his presidency. People who wanted
the GOP to stay in power never
bought into what they consider the
"cult" of Obama and it's likely nothing
since his inauguration has won them
over.
Still, I think these letters are worthy
of comment for the double standard
they expose.
It was a rare Bush-booster letter
that didn't veer from a defense of the
then-president's policies into chastis-
ing the Democrats for even daring to
criticize him because, after all, "he's
the president and we have to support
him." Letters from Democrats, on the
other hand, generally spent as much
time attacking Bush personally as
they did going after his policies.
Now, I tend to be somewhat of a
First Amendment absolutist when it
comes to political debate. Name-call-

ing, though a fine political tradition,
isn't debate, however. Arguing about
personalities rather than policies tells
me you don't have any ideas that are
better than the ones you oppose.
But what really irritates me is the
glaring inconsistency in someone
who will brook no criticism of a pres-
ident from his party but thinks it's
open season if the person in the Oval
Office is from the opposition. You
have to be consistent: You can't, for
example, exempt Bush from criticism
because we're at war without extend-
ing the same protection to Obama
who, the last I checked, is also a
wartime president.
There are good people in both of
our major political parties and
scoundrels in both. What we need to
do is exalt the good people and
expose the scoundrels, regardless of
party affiliation.
By all means, praise governmental
leaders when they do well and com-
plain when they don't. Just don't tol-
erate, or even praise, actions by
someone in your party that would
have you screaming for a recall if
committed by someone from the
opposition.
"Politics, it seems to me, for years, or
all too long, has been concerned with
right or left instead of right or wrong."

Grants helped children attend summer camps


FROM GULF COAST COMMUNITY
FOUNDATION OF VENICE

When schools let out for the sum-
mer this year, hundreds of children in
Sarasota and Charlotte counties
weren't guaranteed a chance to learn,
play and explore in the safe environ-
ment of a summer camp.
As parents found it increasingly diffi-
cult to send their children to high-qual-
ity programming in the current eco-
nomic climate, local nonprofit organi-
zations were faced with an unprece-
dented number of requests for scholar-
ship assistance.
To address the need, Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of Venice
awarded nearly $175,000 in grants in
June to help 14 local nonprofits offset


fees for children to attend their summer
programs. The funding helped more
than 500 children participate in activi-
ties, camps and clubs this summer.
"There has never been a year like
this one, and the youth summer pro-
gram funding ourYMCA received was a
tremendous shot in the arm,"
remarked Ken Modzelewski, CEO of
South County FamilyYMCA, one of the
organizations to receive a foundation
grant.
"Because Gulf Coast Community
Foundation provided operational
funding, we were able to offer scholar-
ship assistance for more than 150 kids
in YMCA Preschool or Summer Camp
without having to reduce the quality or


variety of our programs."
The following o


)rganizations

support their summer youth programs:

PENDING HOME SALES INDEX RISES AGAIN IN JUNE


WASHINGTON (AP)-
Pending U.S. home sales
rose in June for the fifth
straight month, another
encouraging sign of life
for the embattled U.S.
housing market, the
National Association of
Realtors reported Tuesday.
For June, the Realtors
group said its pending
home sales index rose 3.6
percent to 94.6, from an
upwardly revised reading
of 91.3 in May. The last
time there were five
consecutive monthly gains

and is considered a For the first time in five


years, home resales have
risen for three months in a
row, increasing almost 4
percent in June. Low
prices, attractive mortgage
rates and a first-time
homebuyers tax credit of
up to $8,000 have kick-
started sales.
"Because housing is so
affordable in today's
market, job security and
the first-time buyer tax
credit are bigger factors in
influencing home sales,"
said Lawrence Yun, the
Realtors group's chief


economist, in a statement.
Also Tuesday, home-
builder D.R. Horton Inc.
said its fiscal third-quarter
losses shrank from the
year-ago period, as it took
smaller charges against
the falling values of its
land and unsold homes.

Yun said he expects


existing home sales to

balance of the year.
"It appears home sales
are on a sounder footing
and inventory is gradually
being absorbed," he said.
Regionally, the pending
home sales index jumped
7.1 percent to 100.7 in the
South and 2.9 percent to
100.4 in the West.
The index inched up 0.4
percent to 81.2 in the
Northeast, and up 0.8
percent to 89.9 in the
Midwest.

McLEAN, VA. -
Rates on 30-year mort-
gages dipped this week
after economic reports
came in better than
expected, Freddie Mac
said Thursday.
The average rate on a
30-year fixed rate
mortgage was 5.22
percent, down from last
week, when it was 5.25
percent.
Last year at this time,
the 30-year fixed rate
mortgage rate averaged
6.52 percent.
Low mortgage rates
can spur refinance
activity and make home
buying more attractive.
Rates on 30-year mort-
gages dropped to a
record low of 4.78
percent earlier this year.
Frank Nothaft, Freddie
Mac's chief economist,
said the economy slowed
by an annual rate of 1

percent in the second
quarter, "which was
more positive than
market forecasts."
"Homebuyer demand
improved as well, aided
by high levels of housing
affordability," Nothaft
said.
Freddie Mac collects
mortgage rates on
Monday through
Wednesday of each week
from lenders around the
country.
Rates often fluctuate
significantly, even within
a given day.


The average rate on a
15-year fixed-rate
mortgage fell to 4.63
percent from 4.69
percent last week,
Freddie Mac said.
Rates on five-year,
adjustable-rate mort-
gages averaged 4.73
percent, down from 4.75
percent last week.
Rates on one-year,
adjustable-rate mort-
gages dropped to 4.78
percent from 4.8 per-
cent.
The rates do not
include add-on fees


known as points.
The nationwide fee
averaged 0.6 point for
every loan in the survey
except for one-year
adjustable rate mort-
gages, which averaged
0.5 point.

The month of July has come and
gone and I must say that as an Aus-
tralian, I always feel privileged to be
able to participate in the July 4 Inde-
pendence Day celebrations. Thanks
to our friends from Main Street
Punta Gorda and the numerous vol-
unteers that stepped forward to
assist, we had a particularly enjoy-
able Independence Day participat-
ing in this year's Laishley's 4th Fest.
As we see it, in addition to cele-
brating the country's birthday, Inde-
pendence Day is all about family fun
and as usual there was something
for everyone to enjoy in our newly
upgraded Laishley Park.
The fun loving people of Punta
Gorda came out in droves in red,
white and blue to celebrate this spe-
cial occasion. Given the hot summer
day, it was great to see the large num-
ber of children making full use of the
new interactive fountain in Laishley
Park. The day included a fishing
tournament, Punta Gorda Police K-9
unit demonstrations, Army National
Guard displays, a patriotic golf cart
parade and lots of food and music
and culminated with an incredible
fireworks display over the beautiful
Peace River.


At the other end
of town, a record
breaking turnout
was recorded for
the 18th annual
Fourth of July
Freedom swim
across the Peace
River starting in
Port Charlotte
and ending at
Harpoon Harry's
Restaurant at
Fisherman's Vil-
lage in Punta
Gorda. Partici-
pants in this fun
event young and
old said they
found the expe-
rience challeng-

Another first was recorded for
Punta Gorda in July with the intro-
duction of a new website named
Punta Gorda TV. John Magnin, the
chairman of our city's revitalization
committee has begun producing
short films about Punta Gorda and
the first 8 minute film features a rapid
tour of the city's murals. Because
many of the buildings with murals
were destroyed thanks to Hurricane
Charley, our Punta Gorda Historic
Mural Society has been systematical-
ly arranging the re-painting of these
incredible pieces of art that tell about
the rich history of our area. You will
be impressed to view the first film of
the Punta Gorda Murals by visiting

The news media over the last cou-
ple of years has mostly conveyed bad
news regarding the economy and the
real estate market. It is apparent that
this situation is changing and both
the "ups" and "downs" are currently
good news. Home sales are UP and
inventory of homes for sale is DOWN!
The long awaited turnaround of the
housing market appears to finally be
here and all the indicators suggest


that the market
improvement will
indeed continue.
The increase in
home sales is clear
cut evidence that
home prices are
now very afford-
able and that
home ownership
is within reach of
the average per-
son.
After doing the
math, the num-
bers show that

tax credit being
offered to first time home buyers puts
the icing on the cake and if you have
not purchased a home in the last
three years, you owe it to yourself to
explore this opportunity.
Stability, pride, control, perma-
nence are some of the words used to
describe home ownership and if you
do not own a home, NOW IS THE
TIME TO BUY, while prices are so low.
For one example consider the very
affordable Punta Gorda home locat-
ed in the Deep Creek community
being offered at an extremely low ask-
ing price of only $119,500.
If you have decided that the time is
right for you to purchase a Florida

opportunity to show you around
"Our Little Corner of Paradise".
I will do everything in my power to
"make it happen" smoothly and effi-

Punta Gorda businessman's second Olds 442


Last week's article
about the powerful
Hot Rod T Bucket
spurned others owning
high-horsepower fast cars
to alert me Charlotte
County has many such
autos and trucks. I
appreciate the calls and
decided to write up a
more civilized model,
known simply as "442" in
the hobby. Those num-
bers stand for four speed-
four barrel carburetor
and dual exhausts, built
by Oldsmobile starting in
the mid '60s.
Today's car is a 1968
convertible model with
one of the largest (455-
cubic-inch) engines
made by Olds. It's owned
by local businessman
"Bill" Jasper, 63, who
resides near Burnt Store
Marina. Jasper, for seven
years, has had a very
unusual business, known
as "Baby Barrier" Safety
Pool Fence. These are
required by Code
Enforcement for the state
of Florida for all new
pools after 2000. His firm
manufactures the
product to order specs,
sending these fences to
dealers throughout the
USA, as well as overseas.
The business also does
installations in the region
of nearby towns and
counties.
Since the building
industry and economy


has slowed, Jasper found
time to return to an old
love that of an Olds
442 convertible. He didn't
have to look far for one as
his son, Jerrad, who lives
in Orlando, was in the
process of trying to
restore a raggedy version.
Bill Jasper went for a
look-see of its condition
and found the job was
getting to be more than
expected for Jerrad, both
in time and expense. An
agreement to sell the
vehicle to his father
resulted in more work
being done professionally
there; then the car was
brought to Punta Gorda
on a trailer.
After its arrival at Bill's
home, seemingly every
spare minute was used to
do more "fixing" of most
mechanical and electrical
components, plus
rechrome on the
bumpers, and buying a
new radiator, gas tank,
and the mechanism parts
to operate the top. All this
took, from start to finish,
one and a half years.
Even now, there are still
little problems that pop


up, something well-
known by anyone with a
collector car!
A brief background of
Bill Jasper's previous life:
In St. Louis, Mo., he
worked in the brokerage
business and commercial
real estate for more than
20 years. His other child,
Jill, now grown, still lives
in that city. The bitter
winters are what brought
him south, plus a love of
boating. He has a 32-foot
Seamy Cabin Cruiser with
two 350 Magnum gas
engines that does well in
navigating Florida
waterways.
Back to the title:
"Second Olds 442"
evolved from the owner-
ship of such a hot
machine from 1966 to
1975. Previously a 1957
Chevy convertible, and a
1963 full-sized Chevrolet
SS "rag top" were among
some of the vehicles he
kept for years that were
his favorites. The 442
experiences stayed on his
mind, thus he jumped at
the chance to renew
those fond memories by
acquiring the present
"Yellow Bird."
Seen in the photo
alongside Jasper, taken
with the top-down Olds,
is Jeanne Brooks, a close
friend who retired from
teaching in Kentucky
prior to moving to the
Sunshine State. She


enjoys this fast, sporty car
as well, spending time
riding alongside Bill, top
down and hair blowing,
both with big smiles on
their faces.
The following informa-
tion about this particular
442 will make even a
purist take notice: engine,
455 cubic inches (equal
to bore 4.13, by a stroke
of 4.25 horsepower in
excess of 380 horsepower;
torque, 450 pounds;
positraction rear end;
wheelbase only 112
inches; weight, 3,580
pounds; base price,
$3,341; production of


5,142 convertibles;
performance, 0-60 in 7.5
seconds; top speed in
excess of true 120 mph-
reported in various
publications as being the
fastest and best-handling
of all 1968 automobiles.
Everything is built heavy
duty chassis, shocks,
suspension, steering,
brakes, cooling system,
free flow exhaust, etc.
Ready to drag or oval race
right off the assembly
line! (This model was one
of the most coveted
vehicles to own when
new and still remains as
such.)
