ivist Ted Koszarski and retired
firefighter Emilio Carlesimo.
Koszarski is vice president
of the Venice Neighborhoods
Coalition and a board member
of the Venice Taxpayers League
and Sarasota County Council
of Neighborhood Associations.
Mayor Ed Martin appointed
Koszarski to the city's Lifestyles
Committee earlier this year.
He's been a regular at city
council meetings testifying
against the proposed Marriott
Hotel and airport develop-
ment, for lower height limits
and less density in the city
comprehensive plan, and in
favor of passive parks at the
former beach side wastewater
facility on Harbor Drive and
Legacy Park.
Carlesimo ran unsuccess-
fully last year in a three-way
race, losing to Council Mem-
ber Kit McKeon, but made a
respectable showing that gave
him confidence to run again,
he said, this time in a two-way
election. He has criticized the


current council for what he
perceives as its anti-business
approach and irresponsible
fiscal behavior, especially the
Sunshine lawsuit. He said it's
time for some longtime Ve-
netians to step up to the plate
and stop the financial bleed-
ing.
Seat No. 4
Vying for Seat No. 4 are
Harry Walia, an entrepreneur
and developer, and Jim Ben-
nett, a semi-retired real estate
and business attorney and
planning commissioner.
Walia has called for the res-
ignation of council members
who violated the Sunshine law,
and wants to rehab the former
Circus Arena and lease it to
raise revenue for the city. It's
one of many ideas he said are
needed to prop up the city dur-
ing this recession.
As a planning commission-
er, Bennett supported the low-
er height and density limits in
the comprehensive plan.


Koszarski and Bennett are
running as a team, according
to Koszarski, and generally
support a slow-growth plat-
form.
Carlesimo and Walia say it's
time to put an end to expen-
sive litigation and look toward
smart-growth principles to
guide future growth in the city.
Preserve paradise
The overriding election is-
sue is representation, said
Koszarski. He and Bennett live
near each other off the island,
in Pinebrook South and Saw-
grass, respectively.
"Were our opponents to be
elected, five council members
would be living within walking
distance of each other in
Golden Beach," he said. '"A
huge part of the city would not
be represented. That's not
right."
"I love Venice and I think we
should preserve our paradise.

Sidewalk scooter scare

Church volunteers help


food bank clients get fresh


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

A Sarasota County deputy
gave Herb Jean, an 80-year-old
Englewood resident, a ticket
recently for riding his X-Treme
Model X-360 electric scooter
on the sidewalk. The ticket cost
him $149 and he also had to at-
tend a driver's refresher course
to keep the points off his li-
cense.
That incident resulted in a
Venice resident writing to the
Gondolier Sun to see if it was
really true that scooters aren't
allowed on sidewalks.
The answer is: There are
scooters and then there are
scooters, so it depends on the
type of scooter.
Electric personal assistive
mobility devices, commonly
called scooters, are allowed on
sidewalks, according to Florida
Statute 316.2068. These scoot-

C


ers usually have three wheels
and are self-balancing. Electric
wheelchairs also are allowed
on sidewalks.
A child's scooter equipped
with a motor, however, is not.
Neither are gas-powered or
electric-powered two-wheeled
scooters, such as the one Jean
was riding.
"Sidewalks are made for
pedestrians," Venice Police
Capt. Tom McNulty said.
He also said it's a common-
sense thing.
"Riding for one's enjoyment
is completely different than
riding because you have
mobility issues," McNulty said.
"Electric scooters for children
don't qualify. Other than
pedestrians and bicycles, side-
walks are for those with mobil-
ity issues.

The issue surfaced in 2007
when two building inspectors
grew concerned about issuing
permits that would allow

while construction was ongo-
ing and without the necessary
permits. The property was the
former home of Norma Jean's
Restaurant.

VPD recommended for accreditation


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

It's been a long time
coming, but hard work,
dedication and team-
work are paying off as the
Venice Police Depart-
ment passed another
hurdle in its quest for
state accreditation.
Accreditation for law
enforcement agencies in
Florida is granted by the
Commission for Florida
Law Enforcement Accred-
itation.
The final inspection
took place Aug. 26-28,
and the assessors told
VPD Chief Julie Williams
that the department
would receive their
recommendation for
accreditation.
The full commission
convenes on Oct. 28
and will address VPD's
request for accreditation
at that time. Williams
and members of her staff
are required to be pre-
sent at the meeting.
"Their recommenda-
tion is a validation that
what we're doing is prop-
er, professional and high
quality," Williams said.
Williams said the
assessors told her that
VPD's compliance rate to
become accredited is so
high it is enviable.
That's high praise
coming from the asses-
sors, but Williams and
her staff know it didn't
just happen by itself.
Hard work
Lee Lyons was hired
as an administrative aide
for VPD in February.
Williams immediately
made her the accredita-
tion manager.
"There were 391 appli-
cations for the position
and God was looking out
for us," Williams said.
"We got the best of the
best out of the 391."
"We made it happen
as a group," said the soft-
spoken Lyons.
Williams agreed team-
work played a huge role
in the department's suc-
cess.
"In fairness to Lee,
we hired an accredita-
tion consultant to guide
us through our efforts,
but it was Lee who orga-
nized and made sure
every detail was in
place," Williams said.
"The captains rolled up
their sleeves, as did
Administrative Assistant

Babs Anderson."
It was a lot of hard
work that wouldn't have
been necessary had the
previous VPD adminis-
tration not let the
department's accredita-
tion lapse. But that
oversight didn't keep
the current administra-
tion from putting their
collective noses to the
grindstone to achieve a
milestone they believe
is important to the citi-
zenry, the city and the
department.
Lyons' office is the
epitome of organization.
Huge file drawers con-
tain color-coded folders:
red for mandatory, green
for the standards that
didn't apply to VPD and
yellow for the standards
that could be waived.
Each of the folders con-
tain numerous tabs. A
large white board hang-
ing on her wall repre-
sents the stages of each
standard's progress.
"There are 259 stan-
dards for accreditation,"
Williams said. "And each
of those has up to 25
requirements that must
be met."
Of the 259 standards,
151 are mandatory.
There were 47 stan-
dards (some mandatory
and some not) that did
not apply to VPD, leav-
ing 212 standards that
VPD was responsible
for. Of those, the depart-
ment could waive up to
20 percent or 42. VPD
only waived two of
those standards.


Correction
The marine officer piloting the Venice Police
Department boat after rescuing three men whose
boat was struck by a rogue wave and overturned
was misidentified in the Aug. 29-30 edition of the
Venice Gondolier Sun. VPD Marine Officer Phil
Phillips was piloting the boat. The Gondolier Sun
regrets the error.


When you or a loved one has a medical emergency, you should
know that Venice Regional Medical Center has the resources
of a major medical center-from advanced diagnostics, to an
open heart program and a certified primary stroke center. Which
means we can diagnose and treat almost any medical condition
that comes through our doors. So the next time you have an
emergency, go to the hospital with the technology to take it on.


The assessment
In preparation for the
final accreditation assess-
ment, VPD officials asked
for a mock assessment,
which took place over
three days in July.
VPD officials asked for
the toughest assessors
that could be found for
the mock drill. They got
what they asked for. Those
assessors put department
employees and admin-
istrators through their
accreditation paces.
When the real assess-
ment occurred in August,
VPD was ready.


The final assessors
randomly and without
warning chose certain
officers and rode along
with them.
"One also rode with the
marine patrol officers on
the boat," Williams said.
"The assessor regretted
going to lunch and miss-
ing the action on the day
that the marine patrol
officers rescued three
men from an overturned
boat."
"Assessors stopped
officers wherever they
saw them on the street
and asked them ques-


tions and inspected
equipment," Williams
said.
They inspected fire
extinguishers, the chem-
ical agents officers carry
on their belts and more.
They also asked trick
questions or questions at
tricky times.
"One officer was
showing an assessor his
stop sticks when, out of
the blue, the assessor
asked to see the officer's
driver license," Williams
said. "The officer could-
n't find it for a minute,
but then found it stuck
between two credit
cards."
Though it is no longer
required as part of the
accreditation process,
VPD provided a static
display of its marked and
unmarked cars, boat,
bikes, the Explorer van
and more. The assessors
went through all of the
equipment and asked
detailed questions about
each.
Administration
Assessors left no stone
unturned in VPD opera-
tions. They scrutinized
administrative records
on site and at city hall.
"The assessors were
impressed with the prop-
erty room because evi-
dence was easy to find,
and they were envious of
our storage shelving,"
she said. "They took pho-
tos and they loved the


records department."
Williams is responsi-
ble for all administra-
tive investigative records,
which are kept under
lock and key. Rick Napoli,
administrative assistant,
is in charge of the finan-
cial records.
"They said our finan-
cial records were impec-
cable," Williams said.
Administrative Assis-
tant Babs Anderson is
responsible for the hir-
ing records, while Marta
Ugas-Carpenter, admin-
istrative aide, takes care
of the training records.
"The assessors were
impressed with our secu-
rity," Williams said. "We
treat sensitive records
very securely."
Williams is proud of
her team and her depart-
ment, including the
administrative services
department at city hall
and how prepared that
department was for the
final assessment.
"I personally invited
people who helped us
get to this point to the

because it was a team
effort," she said.
Of course, the impor-

PHOTO COURTESY OF SARASOTA COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICE

Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight, right, presents the Life Saving
Award to Deputy Shawn Keeffe.


Deputy earns award
Sarasota County Sheriff
Tom Knight presented the Life
Saving Award to Deputy
Shawn Keeffe.
Keeffe earned the recogni-
tion for his efforts on April 11
when he arrived at a home on
Briarwood Road in Venice
where a 3-year-old girl was
found at the bottom of a pool.
He arrived on scene within
two minutes of the dispatch to
find the child unconscious and
suffering sporadic and labored
breathing.
Keeffe performed abdomi-
nal compressions on the child
to clear her airway. Then he
gave her several breaths before
she began to breathe unaided.
Still, the child's breathing re-
mained labored and sporadic,
requiring repeated assistance
from Keeffe.


The child was taken to
Venice Regional Medical Cen-
ter and stabilized and then
transported to All Children's
Hospital in St. Petersburg.
While the child was in the
emergency room, Emergency
Medical Services personnel
told supervisors that Keeffe's
actions were the reason the
child was alive.
"Deputy Keeffe's decisive
action in this stressful situa-
tion saved the life of the child,"
Knight said. "His efforts not
only meet the requirements of
the Life Saving Award, but are
also in keeping with the high
standards set by the Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office."

Drive-by battery
A 65-year-old man sus-
tained a cut to the right side of
his head as well as numerous


scrapes and bruises after being
attacked in his driveway in the
400 block of Bayview Parkway
in Nokomis.
About 10:50 a.m. Thursday,
the suspect walked toward the
victim, who was standing in
his driveway, and knocked the
victim's hat off his head.
When the victim asked why
he did that, the suspect threat-
ened the man and then
knocked him down on the
shell driveway and climbed on
top of him.
The victim struggled to get
out from under the suspect but
was unable to until the suspect
got up off him.
The victim walked quickly
toward a neighbors' house to
get help. At the same time the
suspect got on his bicycle and
rode near the victim and
yelled, "I never touched him,"
and fled the area.
Sarasota County Sheriff's
deputies arrested and charged
Jerry Arthur Crates, 46, 300
block Collins Road, Laurel,
with battery on a victim over
65 in connection. Bond has
been set at $2,500.

Road alerts
No construction activity
requiring lane closures along
the Venice Bypass between
Bird Bay Drive and Center
Road is scheduled during this
abbreviated holiday work
week. For the convenience of
the motoring public, all work
will be suspended over the
long Labor Day weekend.
When work resumes on
Tuesday, Sept. 8, the contrac-
tor will focus on making final
adjustments required by the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation as a precondition to
receiving final acceptance of
the project. None of this work
will require lane closures.
Even though the project is
on the verge of being accepted
as complete by FDOT, mo-
torists are reminded to obey
the posted speed limit and to


drive with extra caution in the
Venice Bypass construction
zone from Bird Bay Drive to
Center Road for the protection
of themselves, pedestrians and
construction workers. Fines
are doubled for speeding and
other driving infractions.

OUR VIEW



Good news for the senior scooter set


T he story had all the makings of a
"Seinfeld" episode or a Monty
Python skit:
"Grannies Gone Wild!"
"The Mild Ones!"
"Heck's Angels, Dag-nabbit!"
It also sent a ripple through the
Medicare set: An 80-year-old retiree
with gimpy knees was slapped with a
$149 fine by a Sarasota County Sher-
iff's deputy for puttering along an
Englewood sidewalk on his electric
scooter.
Scooter crackdown in Florida?
Would grandma now need to navi-
gate the mean streets on her Little
Rascal? Worse, still would she just to
keep it parked in the garage?
To quote the great two-dimension-
al philosopher Charlie Brown, "Good
grief!"
The short answer is no. For the
most part, seniors can rest assured
they won't be cited for riding their
mini-scooters on area sidewalks. It's
the safest way to go, and it's a wonder-


ful, often necessary, mode of trans-
port for people who need to get
around without driving a car, walking
long distances or hitching rides with
friends.
The longer explanation involves
the case of Herb Jean of Englewood.
Jean, 80, has bad knees, but still drives
and rides a bicycle. His son bought
him an electric scooter, though,
which he also enjoyed with impunity.
Until Aug. 11, that is.
On that day, Jean left his home in
the Bay Vista development off Old
Englewood Road, scootered down
Dearborn Street and south on South
McCall Road. There, he was stopped
by a deputy and given a ticket for
$149. For driving an electric scooter
on the sidewalk.
Jean said he drove on the sidewalks
"to be safe."
"For small errands, I like to take it
out and stay out of traffic on the darn


thing," he said.
Yes, ridiculous.


Bring on the


Pythons and George Costanza.
Upstanding citizen that he is, Jean
also said he would pay up.
"I want to get this thing behind
me," he told us.
That included a driver's refresher
session he was due to take Saturday
so he could keep the points off his li-
cense.
Yes, again, ridiculous.
This is clearly a case where a
deputy should have exercised more
discretion and perhaps, at most,
issued a warning. It's a solid bet the
Sarasota County Sheriff's Office
would have preferred that to any
"busted grandpa" publicity. And, real-
ly, it was an infraction that should
have been ignored completely in the
first place.
But what of the broader issue of
scooters on the sidewalks?
Jean said the law is vague and
should be changed. We agree the law
is a little vague, but we're not sure
changes are necessary.


The brief legal rundown: Motor-
ized vehicles are not permitted by
state law on the sidewalks. This in-
cludes motorbikes, mopeds, "go-
peds" and many motor scooters.
But the common three-wheel
scooters known as electric person-
al assistive mobility devices can be
driven legally on sidewalks, according
to an exemption in the law. Motorized
wheelchairs too. Everyone, the police
included, encourages and respects
that.
Jean's problem was that his model
- an X-Treme X-360 was a little
different. It has two wheels. It has
slightly more power and may be able
to go faster than the common three-
wheelers, which top out at 4 mph.
Yes, it is still ridiculous that he got a
$149 ticket for it, and maybe the law
should be changed slightly, but the
intent is to keep speedier "motorized
vehicles" away from pedestrians.
As for the other scooters: Go,
granny, go. The cops won't bust you.


Common sense is key to


health care reforms


VERN BUCHANAN
GUEST COLUMNIST


One of the guiding princi-
ples taught in medical school
is rimum non nocere. a Latin
phrase that means, "First, do
no harm."
It's a maxim that Congress
would be wise to follow as it
works toward passage of
sweeping health-care legisla-
tion.
There is no question that we
need to reform a health-care
system that now consumes 16
percent of our national eco-
nomic output. We need to
make health care more afford-
able and accessible under a
system that emphasizes pre-
ventive treatments and early
detection.
Congress should take steps
to make sure that health insur-
ers cannot callously deny care
to people with pre-existing
conditions, like diabetes, heart
disease or cancer. And we
need to make coverage more
portable so people can keep
their insurance when they
leave or change jobs.
Reducing frivolous lawsuits
also would lower the overall
cost of care and allow doctors
to practice preventive medi-
cine instead of defensive med-
icine. We should also create
association health plans that
allow small businesses to pur-
chase group health plans,
which will make coverage
more affordable by spreading
risk and increasing negotiating
power. Finally, we should tar-
get waste, fraud and abuse
rampant in the current system.
But what we cannot do is
jeopardize the sacred relation-
ship between patient and doc-
tor by putting health-care
decisions in the hands of
Washington bureaucrats. Any
reform that results in delayed
or denied treatment under a
government-run system is a
step backward, not forward.
I am a cosponsor of the
Medical Rights Act, which will
guarantee patients control of
their own health-care deci-
sions. The bill will also prevent
the rationing of care as seen in
the United Kingdom and Can-
ada, where people have been
denied treatment because it
was too expensive or because
a patient was too old.
In this country, as health
insurance gets more expen-
sive, too many working fami-


lies don't have access to quali-
ty health care. Republicans
and Democrats agree that we
need major reform.
Unfortunately, instead of a
bipartisan effort to reduce
health-care costs without jeop-
ardizing quality, what is being
rushed through the House is a
partisan bill that creates a gov-
ernment-run insurance plan,
increases the deficit and threat-
ens to kill jobs by taxing small
businesses.
It is encouraging that in the
Senate, a bipartisan group of
lawmakers is working on a
more thoughtful and balanced
bill that reforms health care
without enacting a govern-
ment-run insurance plan or
punitive mandates on small
businesses.
The government-run op-
tion proposed by the House
could result in millions of
Americans losing employer-
sponsored coverage they are
happy with. An independent
study by the Lewin Group of
the potential impact of a gov-
ernment option found that 88
million Americans could be
transitioned out of their cur-
rent plan and into a new gov-
ernment-run plan as employ-
ers drop existing coverage.
According to the nonparti-
san Congressional Budget Of-
fice, the proposed House bill
includes more than a trillion
dollars in new spending over
the next 10 years. To help pay
for health-care reform, the
House bill punishes seniors
with cuts to Medicare and tax-
es increases on small busi-
nesses in the midst of the
worst recession in nearly a
century.
One of these tax increases
amounts to a tax on jobs an
8-percent payroll surcharge for
businesses that can't afford to
purchase coverage for their
employees. Twenty percent of
those responding to a National
Federation of Independent
Businesses survey said they
would simply shut down their
business if faced with an 8-
percent tax on top of what they
already pay.
The bill also includes a 5.4-
percent surtax on certain indi-
viduals, most of whom are
small business owners. In Flor-
ida, the surtax would affect
134,000 taxpayers, including
80,400 small business owners.
Retirees will also suffer from
$500 billion in proposed cuts
to Medicare over 10 years. The
proposed $156 billion cut to
the Medicare Advantage Pro-
gram would force millions of
seniors to go back to the more
expensive traditional Medi-
care.
The bill also relies on steep
cuts in reimbursement rates
for hospitals, nursing homes

LEGAL FEES? CALL US AT 207-1111.


Call in the marina

Poor tax. So, now our taxes are going up and our reserves are
being depleted to pay Venice City Council's legal fees. Sure wish
we had a marina in the wasteland behind the airports or maybe
a Walmart at Laurel Road and Knights Trail. Those businesses
would be paying taxes to defray some of this cost. As it is, just the
poor people of Venice will have to pay for city council's mistakes.


Good thing. Regarding the
football team going to Virginia,
ESPN is picking up the tab for
this, not the taxpayers. I think
it's a wonderful thing for the
boys to be going, something
they'll remember all their lives.
You can't please everybody,
anyhow or anyway.
Say goodbye. I find it
depressing that each time I
pick up the Gondolier Sun,
some ex-mayor or ex-council
member, some out-of-town
attorney with dollar signs in
his or her eyes, some city
council wannabe or some
other disgruntled individual
decides to lob grenades or file
frivolous lawsuits against a sit-
ting city council that was duly
elected by an overwhelming
number of the citizens of
Venice. Perhaps the ex-officials
should reflect on why the "ex"
precedes their names before
they cast stones at others. Yes,
the airport was in place before
many current residents moved
here, but it should not take a
rocket scientist to conclude
that a high-density residential
area and an airport should not
be in close proximity to each
other. It's not a question of if,
but when, some tragic acci-
dent proves this point. The
antics of our local chamber of
commerce and its henchmen
at a recent city council meet-
ing were beneath contempt
and show that they, too, do not
get it. Downtown merchants
who operate on banker's hours
and sell overpriced merchan-
dise have no cause to blame
anyone but themselves. The
developers already responsi-
ble for despoiling our fair city
are now reaping the financial


Let 'em

repercussions from years of
unbridled speculation and
overbuilding. Perhaps the best
solution would be for all the
malcontents to assemble,
board a bus and travel to some
distant town. We will all shed
crocodile tears and wave
goodbye.
Upping smokes. In just
three months our politicians
have raised the price of a car-
ton of cigarettes more than
$20. Yes, more than $20. Now,
please ask them how much
liquor has gone up and how
many people have been killed
just this year by drunks. Is that
because they can't smoke in
government buildings but can
still drink alcohol in them?
Definitely yes. At last, a
sensible question: Should Ven-
ice Council members be elect-
ed from districts? Definitely
yes! Definitely yes! A long-
awaited solution.
Circling the drums. I'm


submitting this because Kim
Cool's article just scratched the
surface. There's a growing num-
ber of people who are upset that
the county is attempting to
drive the drum circle from
Nokomis Beach. A sunset drum
circle celebration has been held
on Nokomis Beach every
Saturday night for over 10 years.
It's a family-oriented event
enjoyed by visitors and locals
alike and it's free of charge,
something unheard of in
Sarasota County.
While the county does not
promote, support or even
encourage the event, it is one of
the largest weekly gatherings in
any county park or beach. So
what do the knuckleheads at
the county do? They decide to
hold a "Sip and Stroll" the third
Saturday night of each month at
- guess where? Yes, at the al-
ready crowded Nokomis Beach.
Never mind that the county has
14 fine public beaches, 13 of
which are not crowded on
Saturday nights. Plus, Nokomis
Beach is only crowded on
Saturday nights.
This is yet another example
of poor planning on behalf of
the county. Perhaps county per-
sonnel are attempting to bring
attention to the new, expensive
and seldom-used Nokomis
Beach pavilion or are simply
taking advantage of the drum
circle crowd. But common
sense would say have the event
at one of the other 13 beaches or
have the event on another night
of the week. But who has ever
accused the county of showing
common sense?
Ramblings. So what's with the
bizarre rambling about city
council in the Althea's ad? Very
strange. Doesn't make me
want to go there.
Nonrenewable. Contrary to
reports, you cannot renew
your driver license over the In-
ternet. You need to go to a dri-
ver license bureau. You can
look them up in the white
pages of the phone book.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Self-interest not

in city's interest

Editor:
Venice residents have been deeply damaged by the
flawed business logic and tactics used by city council
members, not only in the Sunshine suits, but in other
recently picked fights. The legal cost of their agenda
may well exceed $250 per resident (a total of $5 mil-
lion to $6 million).
One can expect politicians to have agendas, but it
is morally wrong to push personal agendas beyond
the limits of business prudence. Leaders either
accomplish the desired objective or know how and
when to cut their losses. Our council has failed in both
regards.
They need to be replaced by citizens who respect
the taxpayer and the city more than their limited self-
interest agenda.

Bill is open
to interpretation
Editor:
If you have not read
the House of Represent-
atives' proposed health-
care bill of 1,000-plus
pages, the www.open-
congress.org/bill" Web
site will give you a two-
page summary of its con-
tents.
The language is so
general that when it is
passed on to the federal
agencies for application,
the agencies will have to
write their own interpre-
tation of the bill's sec-
tions that apply to them.
Example: "Requires
qualified health benefits
plans to provide essential
benefits." Anyone want
to interpret that?
Example: "Amend IRS
Code to impose tax on an
individual without cover-
age." Does that really
mean that those people
with extensive assets who
can pay for their own
health care services are
going to be taxed because
they don't have insur-
ance?
This is your govern-
ment.

Maury J. Biggs
Venice
Health bill would
mandate abortions
Editor:
Under the health-care
plan virtually every
American will eventually
be in a plan that includes
abortion by requiring
individuals to buy health
insurance that meets
minimum benefits stan-
dards determined by
unelected government


bureaucrats. If the law
does not clearly state that
abortion is excluded,
abortion automatically
becomes a minimum re-
quired benefit.
Americans don't sup-
port this and don't sup-
port paying for abor-
tions. The health care bill
amounts to a bailout for
the abortion industry,
which is swimming in
profits as it is. Taxpayers
should not be forced to
subsidize this industry.
Since abortion is man-
dated in the health-care
bill, every insurance plan
will have to cover it and
provide the means nec-
essary to obtain an abor-
tion.
Tell Congress to vote no
on the health-care bill. No
one should be forced to
pay for abortions.

Gone from
bad to worse
Editor:
Obama may have in-
herited a dire economic
situation, but he has
made things worse. Oba-
ma, who has apologized
for America where ever
he has traveled, will de-
stroy America as we
know it; it is not Amer-
icans trying to destroy
him.
Bush may have bailed
out the banks, but it was
Barney Franks, Christo-
pher Dodd and the rest of
the Democrats that have
cost us over $200 billion
so far on the Fannie Mae
and Fannie Mac debacle,
and Obama instituted
the stimulus package.


What makes this pres-
ident think the govern-
ment could run health
care? It has bankrupted
Social Security, Medicare
and the post office.
The poor do not go
without health care -
they have Medicaid and
no one is refused emer-
gency care.
Those against H.B.
3200 are all Americans,
not just Republicans. The
bill is attempting to con-
trol our lives from birth to
death.
I have read the first
500 pages and it is all in
the interpretation. Peo-
ple appointed by our
president, not your doc-
tor, will decide the inter-
pretation and make your
life-and-death decisions.
Hillary Clinton said, "I
am sick and tired of peo-
ple who say if you debate
and you disagree with this
administration somehow
you are unpatriotic; and
we should stand up and
say, we are Americans
and we have a right to
disagree with this admin-
istration."
So stop with the com-
plaining about the tea
parties and people speak-
ing up at the Town Hall
meetings. We are Amer-
icans and we disagree
with this health care.

AARP is off base
Editor:
It is pretty pathetic
when an organization
such as the AARP misrep-
resents the facts so that it
can benefit financially
from an inside-track with
the government.
The AARP hasn't rep-
resented all of its mem-
bers for decades. It takes
its marching orders from
the left. We are all so sick
of politics, politicians
and organizations who
look for their own finan-
cial gain when making
decisions.
Apparently, when AARP
issued talking points to
help us write our letter, it
forgot to read the propos-
al in HR 3200. The health
care proposed is social-
ized medicine. If you are
going to add 50 million
people into the system,
there aren't enough doc-
tors to treat them. There-
fore, you have rationing.
You are not going to
keep your doctor. Senior
citizens are too expen-
sive, medicine won't be
given, operations won't
be performed.


We're all happy with
what we have and what
we paid for. This admin-
istration is squandering
our resources and will
destroy the future for our
children and grandchil-
dren if we don't fight
back.

Industry needs
dressing down
Editor:
OK, I admit that I am a
mother, a grandmother,


a great-grandmother and
a former teacher, but I
have just read the ads in
the Sunday paper, and I
am totally disgusted at
what "outfits" are being
advertised for kids going
back to school.
What ever happened
to little girls wearing
dresses and boys wearing
real pants and shirts,
instead of jeans com-
plete with holes and/or
belts which pull the
pants down to the very
level of obscenity?

control behavior.
Kids are wonderful
and they are wrongly
being led to believe that
"sexy" and/or "grownup"
dressing is the way to go.
Parents can refuse to buy
these outfits, in favor of
more appropriate attire
(and I know that isn't
easy), but who else can
convince the clothing
industry that they are
overboard on grown-up
outfits for young chil-
dren?

Newspapers and papyrus scrolls


A
DEREK DUNN-RANKIN
GUEST COLUMNIST


After a good 300-year
run, newspapers are head-
ed for the same scrap heap
as the Persians' clay tablets
and the Egyptians' papy-
rus scrolls.
That seems a popular
impression that makes
the speaker sound mod-
em and up-to-date. Fact
is, newspapers like
auto dealers, Realtors,
department stores and
others have been bat-
tered by the recent reces-
sion, but they are still
media champs.
Besides the recession,
the newspaper doom-
and-gloom stories are a
result of chain newspa-
per companies taking on
massive debt to buy
more newspapers -
debt eagerly extended by
banks that expected
ever-expanding profits to
assure repayment.
In the competition for
attention time, our news-
papers under present
owners or new owners
will continue to evolve,
compete and serve for
many decades. Evolution
is a rule of modern life for
media, from radio, TV
and magazines to cell
phones and newspapers.
Book publishers have
learned to turn out
instant books to cele-
brate special events. Cell


phones can download
music and books, news-
paper or magazine arti-
cles.
Never have we as a
nation spent so much
time and money as me-
dia consumers. Radio
and TV magazine and
billboards, cell phones
and books, earphones
connected to pocket-size
recording devices all
compete with one anoth-
er and with old-fash-
ioned conversation for
our time and attention.
We know that the local
paper is a critical part of
the fabric that makes a
community work. It is
the vehicle for citizens
and their leaders to share
in a discussion of the
challenges and opportu-
nities that face them.
Its news stories set the
stage for breakfast-table
and water-cooler conver-
sations. It is a forum to
challenge established
wisdom, extend praise
and vent frustrations
with a wide audience. No
other medium comes
close to supporting the
number of editors and
reporters who cover our
interests and ask the hard
questions of government
leaders. Google and Bing
are wonderful informa-
tion tools, but they em-
ploy not a single reporter.
The newspaper must
be profitable to serve,
and the news here is
good. Although the pre-
sent severe recession
gouged newspaper rev-
enues and profits, they
remain a powerful mar-
keting force.
The survey organiza-
tion, MORI, recently
polled 3,000 households
on their use of newspa-


pers. Their survey tells us
that three out of every
five consumers depend
on newspapers to make
buying decisions.
A similar percentage
say they read newspa-
per inserts. An amazing
82 percent said they
made a buying decision
in the past month bas-
ed on newspaper adver-
tising.
We have known this
for a long time. Our
phones ring when we do
not get enough inserts
for all our Sunday single-
copy buyers during win-
ter season circulation
highs. What works for the
big-box stores with their
preprinted ads works for
the local merchant too.
The Internet, with its
Web pages, is a helpful
and powerful medium.
However, the MORI sur-
vey points out that con-
sumers are twice as likely
to consult a newspaper
as the Web in seeking
advertising information.
If the merchant wants to
persuade readers to take
action, nothing matches
the daily newspaper.
And that's a good
thing. We need those ad-
vertisers who add reader
interest to the daily
paper. Their dollars sup-
port the editorial effort;
no other media has the
resources to match.
Times are changing.
Your newspaper will con-
tinue to evolve. You can
count on us to continue
meeting reader, advertis-
er and community needs
for decades to come.

and other providers already struggling to turn a prof-
it. These cuts will put providers out of business and
reduce the quality of services to Florida's seniors.
But even these measures fall short of paying for the
proposed plan. The CBO said the proposed bill would
add $239 billion to the federal budget deficit.
I firmly believe we need health reform, but we
need to take a different path. We should focus on bal-
anced, common-sense reforms such as eliminating
waste, fraud and abuse; reducing frivolous lawsuits;
coverage of pre-existing conditions; ensuring porta-
bility; and preserving the doctor-patient relationship.
These steps would bring down health-care costs
and increase access to quality, personalized health
care without doing harm.
In the end, I am hopeful that leadership allows the
public and Congress enough time to review the final
bill before bringing it to the floor for a vote instead of
rushing to meet an arbitrary deadline.

another way to secure
fresh vegetables.
Cue the congregation
of Emmanuel Lutheran
Church.
On Friday, the church
started the Growing for
Others Project, a fresh
vegetable-growing pro-
ject for interested clients
of SCFB. Volunteers from
the church are planting
seeds of 11 different veg-
etables, including toma-
toes, carrots, green beans
and cucumbers. When
the plants grow big
enough to be repotted,
the repotted plants will
be given to the SCFB
recipients who said they
want to grow their own
vegetables.
"We have 30 individu-
als and families signed
up for the help," said
retired Rev. Wes Runk,
project coordinator.
About 500 families are
served by SCFB, so the
number who sign up for
the Growing project is
expected to increase.
"We've seen an
increase of about 100
families coming in for
food from July to
August," said Mike
Gippert, vice chair of the
food bank. "We served
about 14,000 last year at
this time, and this year

That means keep the
small-town ambience.
We must grow, but in
such a fashion that the
quality of life is enhanced
and not detracted. That's
why people are willing to
pay a premium here. If
we have more noise and
more congestion, the
whole quality of life goes
down. We don't want
that."
Fiscally, Koszarski said
he favors more efficien-
cies in city government,
and added that health-
care benefits for council
and high administrative
salaries need to be look-
ed at.
"We can't use General
Motors as a business
model. We have people
retiring for more money
than when they were
paid on the job. We also
have a situation with mil-
lions of dollars lying
around collecting virtual-
ly no interest. We could
be doing much better
than we are."

Unfinished business
Bennett hopes to
bring resolution to these
top three issues: the air-
port, Open Government/
Sunshine policy and the
comprehensive plan.
"We need to complete
the Airport Master Plan
and get it approved by
the Federal Aviation Ad-
ministration," said Ben-
nett, "along with resolv-
ing the myriad issues that
are express and implied
in its audit report. To-
gether, these should re-
solve the hangar issue
and the validity of the
lease visa vis (Venice Jet
Center) Receiver Burton
Wiand.
"The city e-mail policy
needs work, as does the
interpretation of both the
Sunshine and public rec-
ords statutes. A compre-
hensive policy needs to
be developed in connec-
tion with fully insuring
both Sunshine issues and
other litigation matters.
"The comprehensive
plan has to be reviewed
when it comes back from

the number has gone up
to a little more than
16,000."

Setting the tables
The kickoff of the
Growing project began
Friday with the building
of 15 potting tables.
The tables will go to
recipient gardeners who
are unable to bend down
and perform ground gar-
dening.
The Home Depot of
Venice donated the wood
and building materials,
and some of their
employees volunteered
their time to train church
volunteers how to con-
struct the tables.
Andy Ceglia, sales
associate, took the idea
to his manager, Brit
Huddleston, who agreed
to help with the project.
They were both on site
Friday to help build the
tables. Other Home
Depot staff who helped
were Kevin Earl, Gary
Osgood, Ann Marie
Johnson and Patty
Dulaney.
Many other individu-
als and companies vol-
unteered. Edgewood and
MRT nurseries donated
containers, potting soil
and other plant-growing
materials. Church mem-
ber Jack Mersereau
designed the potting


the state, fixed as needed
and possible, and then
regulations have to be
updated/revised/intro-
duced to go with the final
plan."

Door-to-door
Carlesimo continues
his door to door cam-
paigning, a hallmark of
his last election. He visit-
ed more than 2,000
homes last year and said
he hopes to meet even
more Venetians this year.
A fiscal conservative,
he recently criticized
council for accepting free
lifetime health-care ben-
efits even though council
members are considered
part-time, something not
afforded to other part-
time staff, and for granti-
ng medical benefits to
the city attorney, a perk
he feels is unnecessary.
"Our present rate of
spending, declining
property values and
reduced revenue, com-
bined with a mindset
welcoming litigation, are
a guarantee that our
taxes are going to go up,"


table.
Rich Veleber, Thrivent
Financial for Lutherans
representative, brought a
$400 check donated by
the faith-based financial
organization.
"This is truly 'seed'
money," Veleber
quipped, and the volun-
teer group broke out in
laughter. This was an ini-
tial grant and "there will
be more to come," he
said.
Runk said the tables
cost about $100 each,
and that doesn't include
the cost of the labor or
use of the builders' tools.
Lee Amos, project
chair, said he got
involved because he is
interested in organic
farming. The recent col-
lege graduate said he
wants to start a commu-
nity-supported organic
farm.
Emmanuel Lutheran
Church Senior Pastor
Rev. David Johnson
thanked Sharon Davis for
helping with promotions
and Mike and Debbie
Gippert, two of the vol-
unteer leaders at SCFB.
He also thanked the vol-
unteer parishioners who
were building tables and
planting vegetables for
their time and efforts.
"Every individual is
blessed with at least one


he said. "We have some
very tough choices ahead
and now is the time to
hold the line.
"There seems to be no
end to lawsuits and liti-
gation facing the city,"
Carlesimo states in a
campaign brochure.
"The current 'Bring it on'
attitude can only bank-
rupt the city, increase our
taxes and foster our rep-
utation as a hostile, com-
bative and arrogant gov-
ernment. The time has
come to stop the litiga-
tion and turn to common
sense approaches to
resolving our problems."

Small business
This week Walia mail-
ed to voters a campaign
brochure in the form of a
sample invoice for a spe-
cial assessment, estimat-
ing the current council
has cost taxpayers
$3,833,000 due to the
Sunshine suit, personal
attorney fees that council
approved, the Milo
short-term rental suit,
Sharky's restaurant lease
dispute, plus city attor-


gift to use for the com-
munity at large," he said.
"Thank you for being
here and using your gift
for somebody else."

Volunteers
Michelle Deturk,
Amos' mother, waited for
a table to work on, drill in
hand.
"I've done this before,"
she said. "I love building
things and am here to
help Lee out."
Meg Kessler drilled
screws into a 2 inch by 2
inch piece of wood while
Pat Bade held the wood
steady.
"I have done this
before even though it
doesn't look like it,"
Kessler said. Bade said, "I
have never done it
before."
Millie Cairns said she
has used a drill before
but never built a table.
Sept. 4 was the first
day of what Emmanuel
Lutheran Church mem-
bers hope is a growing
community project.
Runk expects the project
to grow as news of what it
is about gets out and
more of the 500 SCFB
families choose this
option for getting vegeta-
bles into their diets.

ney expenses for in-
house legal advice and
outside expert legal opin-
ions.
"We must stop this,"
Walia said. "We cannot
afford to pay more taxes.
And we must not deplete
Venice's rainy-day fund
to pay for the council
members' mistakes.
"Venice is a small
town which should be
run as a small business,"
the kind of experience
Walia said he brings to
the table.
"We must not spend
what we do not have. We
must balance our budget
which is in deficit of over
$2 million."
If elected, he said, he
will work to regain the
trust of city residents and
improve communica-
tions and transparency
in all city related matters,
balance the city budget
without raising taxes and
improve service without
eliminating jobs.
The election is Nov. 3.

insufficient evidence to
indicate Behrens failed to
properly enforce build-
ing codes.
In fact, she noted, the
record shows the oppo-
site. Behrens' office took
property owner Tammy
Vellucci, of Venice Trust,
who opened TOTI in 2007,
before the city's Code
Enforcement Board.
"In the expert opinion
of (administrative hear-
ing officer) Michael Gus-
tafson, the property did
not have a change of use,
and, therefore, didn't re-
quire inspections from
the building or fire in-
spector," Duffy wrote.
"Mr. Gustafson also
notes that code enforce-
ment violations were tak-
en to the Code Enforce-
ment Board as required.
Thus, (he) feels (Behrens)
did not commit a violation
of the Florida Statutes."
"We don't believe the
charges are substantiat-
ed in any way," said


rick Duggan, assistant gen-
eral counsel to the SCSO.
"I have to as a sheriff give
deputies the power and
authority to issue citations
or make arrests. At the end
of the day, I will support my
deputies as long as they act
reasonably and they evalu-
ate the facts of the case. I
emphasize that they use
good common sense in
making their decisions."
Knight said."

Behrens' attorney Bob
Moore, at the time the
complaint was filed.
Moore didn't think an
investigation was even
called for. Neither did
former city manager
Marty Black, who in 2008
sought a "review" of the
building officer's respon-
sibilities, not an investi-
gation. Black asked for
the review, he said, be-
cause he couldn't find an
independent building
official who wasn't al-
ready under contract
with the state to review
the facts.
Behrens wasn't the
only building official the
DBPR investigated. Dep-
uty Building Official Dan
Weigner was also scruti-
nized but no complaint
was filed. He was laid off
in August along with four
others due to budget
cuts.

Venice serves Riverview a loss


Venice senior Emily Daniels
jumps to serve to Riverview on
Thursday at Riverview High.
Daniels finished with nine kills
as the Lady Indians swept the
Lady Rams.


Lady Indians

record 13 aces

in victory

BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

For the first three games of
the regular season, Venice has
shown a different talent in
each.
On Thursday, the Lady
Indians showcased their serv-
ing against Riverview as
Venice recorded 13 aces
including 10 by junior
Autumn Duyn in a three-
game sweep, 25-10, 25-12, 25-
13, in the first-ever sporting
event at the new Riverview
High gymnasium.
"It's your first line of
defense," Venice coach Brian
Wheatley said about the
importance of the serve.
'"Anytime you can get a team
out of rhythm that's how you
do it right off the bat is serving.
I thought they were scared to
death of Duyn and Rahal back
there at the service line."
The Lady Indians (3-0)
trailed 1-0 but then rattled off
13 consecutive points and a
big part of it was the lethal
jump serve of Duyn, who
served 12 straight points with
three aces. Doing the job
offensively were seniors Emily
Daniels and Morgan Shattuck,
who had three and two kills,

respectively.
"I think Duyn has turned
into one of the best servers
in the state," Wheatley said.
"The kid is really putting
heat on the ball. We usually
don't stay down when we
serve. We are in attack mode.
We mostly have jump servers
whether it's float or top spin.
We want to come after them.
The kids are really doing a
nice job of focusing in. It's
really the only time of the
game where you can control
the game yourself is at the
service line."
"The team has to win rallies
for me to serve," said Duyn,
who has been jump serving
since her freshman year.
"They keep doing it so I just
keep going back and serving.
It's just continuous."
Venice cruised from this
point and Duyn finished off


the Lady Rams (0-2) with the
devastating jump serve for the
final six points.
Daniels, who had five kills
in the first game, had nine
total for the match.
The second game stayed
close early as Venice led 9-8
before senior Dorothy Rahal
used her powerful jump serve
to haul in nine consecutive
points for the Lady Indians
including two aces, for a 18-9
cushion.
Duyn had four kills in the
second game and finished
with nine for the match.
Venice fell behind 9-5 in the
third game before outscoring
the Lady Rams, 10-2 on the
strength of its serving and kills
by Duyn, Jillian Allen and
Whitney Steranko.
Leading 17-12, Duyn's
jump serve nearly closed out
the match with seven straight


errors.
"We had some pleasurable moments and
some unpleasurable moments and that's what the
beginning of the season is about;," Venice coach
Brian Wheatley said. "We don't have to win a state
championship this week. We just got to keep work-
ing out the kinks. It's going to take a little bit of
time."'
The Lady Indians tied it at 8-8 on six consecu-
tive service points from Morgan Shattuck. The
game was tied four more times. At 12-12, Venice
scored five straight points with the help of two
blocks by Shattuck and kill by Autumn Duyn, who
had four kills in the first game, to take a com-
manding lead.
In the second game, Venice showed its strength
at the net with four blocks including two by Allen.
The game was tied at 6-6 before Venice tallied six
straight points thanks to two kills by Duyn, who fin-
ished with 10 total, and block by Allen. Senior
Whitney Steranko made her presence known with
two kills and a block.
"We had some moments where were we are in
sync and moments where we were not but that's
OK, it's the first week of the season;," Wheatley
said. "It's not going to be OK the last week of the
season:'
Venice cruised in the third game. Leading 2-1,
the Lady Indians scored six straight on two blocks
and a kill by Allen, who had nine kills in the
match, and kills by Emily Daniels and Payton
Herschberger.


service points including four
aces for a 24-12 lead. Another
unforced error by Riverview
ended it.
In total, Duyn had 28 ser-
vice points to go along with 10
digs. Rahal had 12 digs and 12
service points. Allen had five
kills and three blocks while
Shattuck had five kills.
Capasso had 28 assists.
In the freshman match,
Venice swept Riverview, 25-16
and 26-24 to raise its record to
2-0. In the junior varsity
match, the Lady Indians ral-
lied from a 1-0 deficit to beat

Prescription drugs still most deadly


FROM FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
LAW ENFORCEMENT

According to a report
released by the Florida
Department of Law En-
forcement, prescription
drugs continue to be
found more often in the
bodies of deceased per-
sons, compared with
illicit drugs, both as a
cause factor and merely
present in the dece-
dent.
The Florida Medical
Examiners Commission
Report on Drugs Ident-
ified in Deceased Persons
contains information
compiled from autopsies
performed by medical
examiners across the
state in 2008.
During that period,
there were approximate-
ly 171,800 deaths in Flor-
ida. Of those, 8,556 indi-
viduals were found to
have died with one or
more of the drugs speci-
fied in this report in their
bodies.
The report indicates
the most frequently oc-
curring drugs found in
decedents were ethyl
alcohol (4,070), all ben-
zodiazepines (3,229), co-
caine (1,791) and oxy-
codone (1,574).
The drugs that caused
the most deaths were
oxycodone, all benzo-
diazepines (with alprazo-
lam, also known as Xan-
ax, accounting for the
majority of the deaths),
methadone, cocaine,
ethyl alcohol, morphine
and Hydrocodone.
The three drugs that
were the most lethal,
meaning more than 50
percent of the deaths
were caused by the drug
when the drug was
found, were heroin (90.2
percent), methadone (74
percent) and oxycodone
(59.8 percent).
Occurrences of heroin
increased by 20 percent
and deaths caused by
heroin increased by 28
percent when compared
to 2007.
Deaths caused by co-
caine declined by 23.1
percent and deaths caus-
ed by Methadone de-
clined by 11.7 percent
when compared with
2007. In addition, deaths
caused by methylated
amphetamines, cariso-
prodol, fentanyl, and
propoxyphene declined
in this report.
Oxycodone and al-
prazolam became more
prevalent in 2008, with
occurrences increasing
by 25.6 percent and
29.4 percent respective-
ly.
Deaths caused by Oxy-
codone also increased by
33.5 percent and deaths
caused by alprazolam
increased by 23.3 percent
compared to 2007.
Prescripted
The report also indi-
cates that prescription
drugs continued to be
found more often than
illicit drugs both as a
causal factor and merely
present in the decedent.
Prescription drugs ac-
count for 75 percent of all
drug occurrences in this
report when ethyl alco-
hol is excluded.
"The 2008 report re-
flects the threat and
danger of prescription
drug abuse," said FDLE
Commissioner Gerald
Bailey. "Florida law en-
forcement is working
aggressively to inter-
cept those who traffic
in prescription nar-
cotics."
"The magnitude and
severity of prescription
drug abuse calls for
strong, coordinated ac-


tion," said Director of the
Office of Drug Control
Bill Janes.
"Gov. Charlie Crist has
signed legislation that
will improve standards of


care, implement a pre-
scription drug monitor-
ing program, regulate
pain clinics and help pre-
vent doctor-shopping. As
part of a comprehensive
strategy to reduce drug-
related deaths, this legis-


lation represents a criti-
cal step toward reducing
prescription drug abuse
and diversion."
Medical examiners
specifically collected in-
formation on the follow-
ing drugs: ethyl alcohol,


amphetamines, meth-
amphetamines, MDMA
(Ecstasy), MDA, MDEA,
alprazolam, diazepam,
flunitrazepam (rohyp-
nol), other benzodiaze-
pines, cannabinoids (mari-
juana), carisoprodol/


meprobamate, cocaine,
GHB, inhalants, keta-
mine, fentanyl, heroin,
hydrocodone, hydro-
morphone, meperidine,
methadone, morphine,
oxycodone, propoxy-
phene, tramadol and


phencyclidine (PCP).
The Florida Medical
Examiners Commission
2008 Report of Drugs
Identified in Deceased
Persons is available on
the FDLE Web site at

Teen power!

BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR


"What do you want to be when you grow up?" is a question youngsters
are asked from the time they enter kindergarten through high school gradua-
tion.
What if the person asking you really cared about your answer? What if
le created a program around your desires, even adding some things he
thought would help you reach your goals? What if he created an entire sum-
mer camp program to assist you in your life's quest?
That's exactly what John Jefferson does every summer for the 12- to 16-
year-olds who enroll in the Laurel Civic Association's Teen Empowerment
.summer camp program.
JNJefferson designs his programs to give youth a realistic look into the
crystal ball of their futures.
Based on the answers to questions for youths who sign up for
A camp, Jefferson schedules speakers in each category where an

S= --The days at the Teen Empowerment summer camp are
rS5 packed with learning and fun. The following is an example of
.one day in the lives of the campers.
Toastmasters
Members ofVenice Area Toastmasters Club 5486 put the
campers through their public-speaking paces. It was a first for the
local organization.
The Junior Toastmasters Jeopardy Challenge board. "The goal for Toastmasters was to bring the skills we learn
- about how to become better speakers, leaders,

communicators and listeners to the kids," said Angela Balsinger, vice president of public
relations. "Toastmasters is an organization you don't usually hear about until you're an
adult, but you need these skills way before that when you're applying for jobs and col-
lege."
Balsinger; Jan Alexander, past president; and Sam Hague, former area governor of
Toastmasters, met with the youths for four weeks every Tuesday and Thursday.
Campers were required to prepare an introduction of themselves; prepare and deliver
two speeches to their peers and any adults who were present; help evaluate their peers'
speeches; hold various Toastmaster offices; and participate in "table topics." Table topics
is speaking off the cuff on whatever topic the leader gives you.
"This is a good way for us to give back to the community, and working with the kids
is always very rewarding and educating," Alexander said. "They loved table topics, and a
couple of kids who wouldn't talk when we first began really came out of their shells."
Hague agreed.
"They really moved away from their comfort zones," he said. "They even used some of
the things we had taught them in their business-plan presentations.".
The youths also learned some new leadership skills from their Toastmaster counter-
parts.
"When they evaluated their peers' speeches, their challenge was to give two positive
aspects of the speech and one for improvement but only if they could offer a suggestion foi
the improvement," Hague said.
The Toastmaster camping experience ended with a round of Junior Toastmasters
Jeopardy Challenge a fun way to do table topics. When teens received a question during
this game, they were supposed to say, "Thank you, Madam Table Topics Master," and then
answer the question. Kids being kids, they had great fun changing that to, "Thank you,
Madam Table Topics Torturer."
It was the boys against the girls, and the boys won. ..

Humane Society gets high rating


Rated highest in the state

FROM HUMANE SOCIETY
OF SARASOTA COUNTY

Charity Navigator, America's largest
independent evaluator of charities, has
ranked the Humane Society of Sarasota
County as the highest-rated animal
welfare agency in Florida and among
the highest in the nation.
According to Charity Navigator
(www.charitynavigator.org), as of late
August, of all the animal rights, welfare
and service agencies rated in Florida,
the Humane Society of Sarasota
County had the highest overall score.

Exceeds national average
HSSC's score also exceeded the
national average and, of the 247 animal
rights, welfare and service agencies
ranked by Charity Navigator nation-
wide, HSSC was rated 11th.
In terms of donation dollars, Charity
Navigator has determined that more
than 84 percent of HSSC's budgeted
funds go directly to programs and ser-
vices.


Charity Navigator evaluates more
than 5,000 charities annually. Its rating
system examines two broad areas of a
charity's financial health: how respon-
sibly it functions day to day and how
well-positioned it is to sustain its pro-
grams over time. Each charity is then
awarded a numerical score that earns it
an overall rating, ranging from zero to
four stars.
HSSC's performance has sustained a
four-star rating, the highest possible
ranking, for two years.
According to Charity Navigator,
receiving four out of a possible four
stars indicates that HSSC "consistently
executes its mission in a fiscally respon-
sible way and outperforms most other
charities in America.
"This exceptional designation differ-
entiates Humane Society of Sarasota
County from its peers and demon-
strates to the public it is worthy of their
trust."
For more information, visit www.
hssc.org, call 955-4131 or follow HSSC
on Facebook at Deborah Robbins Mill-
man and/or Humane Society of Sara-
sota County, or Twitter at twitter.

TEENS from Page 1B
"You gotta know what
you want. You must
know the brands," she
said. "And you have to
allow yourself time."
Mason also told the
teens it was important to
know how much money
they wanted to spend.
And then the shop-
ping began.
Goodwill Industries
gave each teen a $10 gift
certificate, which was
matched by the civic
association. So with $20
in hand, the teens began
touching and evaluating
items everything from
clothing, purses and jew-
elry to Teddy bears and
Matchbox cars.
The only complaint
came from Jennifer
Smolker, who said it
would have been easier
for her if everything had
been organized by size
rather than color.
Mason said Goodwill
is famous for organizing
by color.
Dylan Scott found
exactly what he wanted
- a gift for his father.
"I found a Rays shirt
for my dad for his birth-
day, which is today," he
said. He purchased a
couple of shirts that he
said he might share with
a couple of his brothers.
The Rev. Don Roberts,
CEO of Goodwill
Industries Manasota,
reminded the youths
that Goodwill isn't a
charity but rather a
chance. He shared his

definition of poverty
with the teens as well.
"It takes 25 years and
all of your money to
raise a self-sufficient
middle-class human
being," he said. "Poverty
has everything to do
with a person who lacks
a support system during
those 25 years."
Off to the Ritz
Following a buffet
dinner at the Dutch
Heritage restaurant,
campers spent the entire
afternoon learning
about the hospitality
industry at the Ritz-
Carlton in Sarasota.
It was a lesson in
business management,
human resources, jobs
in the hospitality field
and the skills one must
have to work in each.
Human resources
representatives talked
with the group about
interviewing and gave
them the following tips
on how to have a suc-
cessful interview:
Find your passion.
When you're asked
to tell an interviewer
something about your-


self, it should be some-
thing that is going to tell
that person a lot about
you. Tell the interviewer
what your interests are
and make yourself
memorable in a good
way.
Be the applicant you
would want to hire.
Dress not for the job
you get, but for the one
you want to have.
Eighty-five percent
of the reason you get the
job is because of your
people skills.
The Ritz hires peo-
ple for who they are.
The youth learned
about various depart-
ments at the Ritz, such
as the front desk, culi-
nary, housekeeping,
finance, golfing and
much more, and what is
required to get a job in
each department.
The finale was a
grand tour of the Ritz,
including the kitchen
and a visit to a regular
room, a suite and a resi-
dence all overlooking
Sarasota Bay.

Volunteers sought for fix-up day

FROM THE FRIENDSHIP VOLUNTEER CENTER

Volunteers in Venice and Sarasota and Manatee
counties will join millions of Americans across the
country completing volunteer projects to improve
their communities and help neighbors in need.
On Saturday, Oct. 24, the 18th annual Make a
Difference Day takes place nationally, sponsored by
USA Weekend (www.usaweekend.com), and locally
by the Friendship Volunteer Center. FVC is a part of
Senior Friendship Centers. The day will begin with a
kick-off breakfast at 8 a.m.
The Friendship Volunteer Center, for the 15th con-
tinuous year, will lead the charge. Activities include
food drives, landscaping, painting, ethnic festivals,
civic improvements and any project to improve life
for the residents, young and old.
Central to the effort is the Brush-Up Sarasota
County initiative in which the Friendship Volunteer
Center recruits volunteer companies and organiza-
tions to paint houses for seniors and other needy fam-
ilies. In the past, over 250 houses in the community
were painted. Last year, the center organized 56 pro-
jects throughout the county, with 50 participating
teams, groups, clubs and associations. More than 725
volunteers had donated over 2,830 hours.
In past years, the Friendship Volunteer Center has
collaborated with the Sarasota Association of Realtors
on Brush-Up Sarasota County. This year the Realtors
also will be involved with the Florida Department of
Community Affairs' Front Porch initiative.
Donations and sponsorships, volunteers for teams
and suggested projects are being sought by FVC.

BY PATRICIA
GARLAUSKY
HORWELL
GUEST WRITER


For me, Paris was only
the city of my dreams,
until my dream came
true this spring.
A little background is
needed here. I have been
in love with all things
French, particularly
those Parisian, since I
began studying French at
the age of 15. I'd talked
about taking that trip for
years but somehow,
life always got in the way.
In the meantime, I had
begun to fill my home
with other people's pho-
tos and souvenirs.
Fortunately, my sister
and her significant other
decided it was time. So
for a very special birth-
day last summer, they
announced they were
taking me to Paris in the
spring.
It was my job to plan
the itinerary and plan I
did. We might be the only
people who ever visited
that city with a spread-
sheet of planned activi-
ties.
After we three decided
on all the places we
wanted to visit, I re-
searched every one of
them. In what arrondise-
ment (neighborhood) is
it? Days open? Hours
open? How much time to
see? Closest Metro stop?
Cost? Then the challenge
was to stuff it all into a
seven-day period.
Impossible, you say?
You're right.
Interpretations
We could never see
everything we wanted to
in a week, but we saw
more than most see in
one week and still allow-
ed ourselves the luxury of
getting lost along the way
- one of the best parts of
traveling. We never once
looked at each other in
the morning asking,
"What shall we do to-
day?"
Early on, we decided
we wanted to rent an
apartment, which we did
online. The apartment
was in a lovely "real"
neighborhood in Mont-
martre. We hired a car to
bring us from Charles De
Gaulle Airport to our new
digs and received a
courtesy mini-tour from
the driver. He was de-
lightful and so happy to
show us his city.
My other job on this
trip was to be the inter-
preter. In preparation, I
subscribed to many free
online French lesson
Web sites, took a brush-
up course at a local col-
lege and listened to
many, many French lan-
guage instructional CDs.
Once we arrived, the
first thing we learned is:


Parisians are warm, won-
derful people. As long as
you smile and greet them
with "Bonjour, madame
(monsieur or mademoi-
selle) before you ask for
help, they will bend over
backward to help you
out. Remember, polite-
ness rules. Even if you
aren't fluent in the lan-
guage, it is wise to learn a
few phrases. Parisians do
appreciate tourists' at-
tempts at communica-
tion, however fumbled
they might be.
The second thing we
learned is: Most Parisians
(in the shops, restau-
rants, train stations, etc.)
speak some English, so
together you can work it
out.
Our apartment was
beautifully appointed -
exactly as it was in the
photos we saw online.
Living in a community
was great. We got to know
the baker, the local cafe
proprietor, the cheese
shop and the chacuterie.
Our breakfast every
morning consisted of
fresh baguettes, freshly
baked criossants, cheese
and dried sausage all
top quality and purchased
inexpensively from local
shopkeepers. Our bal-
cony overlooked a neigh-
borhood park across the
street.
Metropolitans
We got around by
Metro, Paris' subway sys-
tem. The Paris Metro sys-
tem is well laid out. You
can buy a carnett" of 10
tickets at a reduced price
in any station.
Study the map well,
however, and make sure
you look at the last stop
on the line you plan to
take, because when you
are looking for your train
in the station, all signs
will state that train's final
destination. If you don't
know that, chances are
you'll head in the wrong
direction. (I speak from
experience.)
This is a walking city,
and you will climb many,
many flights of stairs in
the Metro system as well,
so make sure that you
bring with you the most
comfortable shoes you
can find. And make sure
they are black. Absolutely
no one, except a handful
of American tourists,
wears white sneakers.
The last thing you want
to do is stand out.
A trip to your local
bookstore at home be-
fore you leave will pro-
vide you with all the
guide books, street and
Metro maps you'll need.
A European cell phone (I
borrowed mine from my
cell phone provider here)
really comes in handy -
especially if you discover
that you've "lost" your
Visa card while you are in

There is so much to see in Paris that it might be easy to
miss the City of Lights' charming doors. This example was
found along the Champs Elysees.

The Parisians seem to have a great love for carousels. We found such a pretty one right


near the Eiffel Tower.

line for the Eiffel Tower.
(Let's not discuss that
episode except to say that
Visa really will overnight
a new card to you.)
It is also helpful to sign
up with a phone card
company before you tra-
vel so you have a cheap
method of making calls
to the United States (pen-
nies per minute) from
any pay phone or apart-
ment or hotel phone.
There are many compa-
nies to choose from on-
line.
Sacre Coeur
Since we were staying
in Montmartre, after we
got settled in our apart-
ment, we hiked up the
hill to see Sacre Coeur
Cathedral.
You can also take a
tram, called a funicular,
or ride the Mont-
martrobus for one Metro
ticket each way.
Montmartre is a neigh-
borhood of artists and
clubs, winding streets,
staircases on streets and
steep hills. From the steps
of this lovely church,
built with the donations
of the locals between
1876 and 1912, you can
see the entire city of Paris
below quite a spectac-
ular view. The church is
beautiful adorned
with stunning mosaics
on its walls and floors.
But make sure you are
aware of your wallet at all
times as this is a prime
area for pickpockets.
There are many, many
artists and merchants lin-
ing the winding streets,
and lots of cobblestones


underfoot. Montmartre is a
romantic, picturesque
part of the city just
what we expected.


La tour Eiffel
We were exhausted by
the time we returned to
our apartment that after-


DON'T M


S


noon after the trek
through Montmartre. We
resisted the urge to sleep
- we knew we had to
stay on Paris time or we'd
have trouble for the rest
of the week.
After some shopping
for supplies, we set off on
our journey to see the
one monument you
MUST see on your first
day in Paris the Eiffel
Tower.
We took the Metro to
The Trocadero, climbed
out of the train station
and look around, per-
plexed. Where was it?
It is too big to miss, for
sure.
We came around the
corner and there it was
- bigger than life. My
dream shared with
people I love.
After I dried my tears I
began to laugh, then
picked up my camera
and shot pictures. We
decided to forgo the
ascent to the top of the
tower, leaving it for an-
other day.
Then three very tired
but oh so happy people
found a cafe, had a glass
of wine and a scrump-
tious dinner.
At the end of day one,
we agreed Paris had
delivered!

FINE WHINES

The last laugh?


Alls 5Hdl ... itul gtml


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


Comedy as we know
it is in serious jeopardy
and, as usual, lawyers
bear some of the blame.
It seems that a stand-
up comedian in Cali-
fornia (which also helps
explain things) is being
sued by her mother-in-
law for making jokes
about her.
HennyYoungman
must be rolling over in
his grave.
I see this as a sign of
an underrated national
problem the death of
our sense of humor. If
we can't make jokes
about mothers-in-law
(not mine, of course),
what's next, no politician
jokes?
To be fair, this come-
dian's mother-in-law
(I'm not using names;
the lady has a lawyer
and isn't afraid to use it)
alleges the jokes about
her were "false, defama-
tory and racist lies" (a
claim that becomes infi-
nitely more interesting
when you learn that the
comedian is half
Swedish and half black,
was raised Roman
Catholic and married a
Jewish man). The few
jokes that I've seen
about her do play on the
cultural differences
between them, and she's
probably been hearing
them for years. Still,
they're just jokes.
Certainly there's a dif-


ference between gentle
ribbing and verbal
abuse, just as there's a
difference between a
joke about mothers-in-
law in general and one
about your mother-in-
law (again, not mine).
And the average person
shouldn't be expected to
be impervious to insults.
But the average person
- and everyone around
him or her would
probably be better off
not taking himself or
herself quite so seriously.
The comedian in
question is trying to
make a living, so she'll
say whatever her audi-
ence finds funny. Is there
a grain of truth in her
jokes? Perhaps, but likely
it's only the jumping off
point for her humor.
Weird true things can be
funny, but most jokes
are clearly outside the
bounds of reality.
Sure, direct insults
hurt, but it's unrealistic
to expect to live your life
without anyone ever
saying anything untrue
and hurtful about you.
Childhood is full of
taunts and teasing, try as
we might to sanitize it.
That's not to say we
should stop trying to
teach people to treat
other people well, just
that a lesson in handling
such conduct is equally
important. After all,
being called a name only
changes who you really
are if you let it.
Of course, the irony


here is that by filing a
lawsuit the mother-in-
law has given these
"false, defamatory and
racist lies" a much
broader audience than
they had in the first
place. It's yet another
example of how people
who can't put up with
being laughed at even a
little bit often make
themselves into the
punchline of an even
bigger joke.

Catch a shining star


Storming the beach for Jesus


BENNETT GROSS
GUEST COLUMNIST


The stars beckon like fireflies
in the night, seemingly so close
and yet so elusive, lighting up
the sky, capturing our imagina-
tion as to what's beyond.
This year marked the 40th
anniversary of the "giant leap"
we took to explore that universe
beyond our planet. The first
lunar landing; an incredible
achievement then, a historical
one now, that spoke of our tech-
nical might and determination.
It spoke of something else -
courage and bravery defined in
the dictionary as: "the ability to
face danger, difficulty or uncer-
tainty without being overcome
by fear or being deflected from a
chosen course of action."
A perfect description of the
two astronauts who first landed
on the moon Neil Armstrong
and Buzz Aldrin who we
embraced as heroes for taking
risks to reach the grandest of
goals.
John Noble Wilford, a re-
porter for the New York Times
who covered the momentous
event, reflects on its legacy:
"We believed then more
readily in heroes people who
reflect what it is that we feel is
admirable in humanity, who
inspire us as at least to strive to
live up to some ideal image."
At that time we were indeed
defined by those we put on
pedestals, those who attained
the supposed unattainable:
Roger Bannister, who ran the
four-minute mile; Edmund
Hillary and Tenzing Norgay,
whose ascent to the top of
Mount Everest was as high as
anyone could climb on this


earth.
On the earthbound side of
humanity, we saluted the
courage of Martin Luther King
Jr. leading the fight for racial
equality and President John E
Kennedy's shining moment -
his inspiration for national ser-
vice.
Who are our heroes today?
We seem to live in a society that
celebrates celebrities. The
superstars, the rock stars whom
all too many of us pin our ado-
ration on only to see them fall to
earth because as Shakespeare
so aptly wrote, "Lord, what fools
these mortals be."
True, that in a world filled
with anxieties and disappoint-
ments they bring us moments
of escape and even joy, but how
far does that devotion take us
individually and as a society? A
cult of celebrity, perhaps?
But wouldn't we be better
served to celebrate those who
through their actions help make
the impossible seem possible;
those who work in their com-
munity to help ease if not eradi-
cate the poverty and misery
around them; those who work
to make new breakthroughs in
medicine; and those who give
our youth a sense of identity
and involvement with the world
they will inhabit.
I hearken to the words of
Armstrong, whom I look upon
as a contemporary in that we
were born just a few years apart.
He and his Apollo crew took us
to the moon, an extraordinary
adventure that we who wit-
nessed it can never forget,
whatever later generations
might think.
"We were really very privi-
leged," he said, "to live in that
thin slice of history where we
changed how man looks at him-
self and what he might become
and where he might go."
If only for that moment we
were united in purpose; per-
haps some day we will be again
as we reach for the stars.
Shalom.

The event is the culmina-

churches are leading in the

"We have a covenant of
belief," Foubister said. "We
believe in one God, one
Christ and one baptism. We
want to improve the fabric of
the community for Jesus
Christ. This idea has been, is
and always will be the spirit
of this group."
He said the group is open
to all Christians and any who
believe in the Holy Trinity.
"This is an inclusive group.
We want everyone who loves
Jesus to be there at the beach,"
he said. "We wanted to do a
good job for this event, and we
think for the next event we
would like to take the concept
and give it to churches in
North Port and Sarasota the
surrounding areas."

SPINAL BALANCE
DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI structural imbalance in your spine may
CHIROPRACTOR interfere with the flow of nerve impulses


If you've been feeling pain or
discomfort in your back or in some other
part of your body, it may be caused by a
structural imbalance in your spine that is
interfering with the functioning of your
nervous system.
Nerve impulses flow from the brain
through the vertebrae in your spinal
column, connecting in a complex network
to all of the body's tissues, muscles and
vital organs. Misalignments that cause a


and cause pain and discomfort in your
back as well as in other parts of your body.
One of the instruments your doctor of
chiropractic may use in correcting spinal
misalignments is a small hand-held device
designed to deliver a controlled, gentle
thrust to the affected area. This helps
correct the spinal misalignment and relieve
the irritation to the spinal nerve that is
causing discomfort.

WORD from Page 7B


even counting that one that means a
hole with water in it.
The "well" that Bea was talking
about was indeed an adverb. When
you say "She holds her sherry well,"
you're using "well" as an adverb
that's a rough equivalent of the
adjective "good." Anyone who's
good at holding her sherry holds it
well.
The "well" that Gertie was talking
about is an adjective. Its dictionary
definition: "in good health." So
when some aunt asks "How do you
do?" and you answer "I do well,"
you're using an adverb. But if she
asks "How are you?" and you answer
"I am well," you're using an adjec-
tive.

Now that you know that it's right
to say "I am well," that means it's
wrong to say of your health, "I am
good," right? Not so fast.
Just because Gertie would have
you say it one way doesn't mean it's
wrong to say it a different way. And
just because Beatrice would have
you think of "good" and "well" as
either-or options doesn't mean
there's no overlap between the
words.
How, then, can we solve this mys-
tery? Where can we find some ora-
cle-like source to tell us whether "I
am good" is grammatically accept-
able? Well, I don't want to alarm you,
but there's probably one in your
house at this very moment.
That's right, to get to the bottom

Part-time DJ's 1940 Ford makes music too


Looking at this
week's feature car, a
'40 Ford Deluxe
Sedan, one might think
of something granddad
used to drive. Maybe, as
at least 91,756 of that
body style were made.
However this one has a
more powerful 1948
Mercury motor and 1939
Mercury 3-speed on-the-
floor transmission. It also
is equipped with
aluminum-finned high-
compression
Offenhauser heads, plus
exhaust headers of that
famous brand sold
during the 1940-'50s era.
Stock, the original engine
that was in it when
delivered new was only
221 cubic inches, turning
out 90 horsepower. The
Mercury size is 239 cubic
inches, with 100 horse-
power plus the afore-
mentioned power
booster items bringing
another 10 horsepower.
A two "cherry bomb"
muffler dual exhaust
system provided approx-
imately 5 more horse-
power, which resulted in
the smooth sounds
coming out the tailpipe.
To the old car hobbyists,
that's music, not noise!
This teal-colored
beauty belongs to Dan
Sullivan, 59, of Port
Charlotte, who is a full-
time employee of
Charlotte County for 19
years in the "sign shop,"
where he is very happy
working his job. The disc
jockey business is a
sideline, after hours and
weekends playing
various kinds of music
on very modern equip-
ment at parties, wedding
receptions, etc. Dan's
been doing this for 22
years, and also thor-
oughly enjoys being able
to bring happiness to
folks wanting this
service, something he
wanted to do since he
was a kid up in Garden
City, Mich. Also during
those early years, model
cars came into his life
from a next-door
neighbor in particular,
a 1940 Ford.
The models and
listening to the hits of
the day became instilled
in his mind as things to
do, instead of being out
on the streets like other
kids. A large collection of
car models and 45
records grew, and both
became a way of life that
stayed with him to this
day.
While growing up, he
received an organ as a


Christmas gift in 1962,
and taught himself to
play it. Soon a fancy
"Farfisa" combination
deluxe organ with Leslie
speakers was purchased,
and he used it to
upgrade the quality of
gigs, which, by word of
mouth, created more
business. All the while,
both he and Karen,
whom he married in
1985, both were
employed by General
Motors. They felt confi-
dent enough in their
future to fly down to
Florida and buy a
General Development
house to rent out until
retirement. Within a
short period of time,
both were out of work.
So they decided to move
to the Sunshine State
and start over.
That's when, prior to
the county job, they
purchased first-class
equipment for the DJ
stints. Constant upgrades
have been added, and
now there is no need to
make any more improve-
ments. Thus some loose
money went into his
pocket savings for that
special Ford.
During June 2007,
Dan flew to California to
visit his wife, a traveling
medical technician.
While there, they
attended a "Good Guys"
Car Show of over 1,000
special interest vehicles.
The '40 Ford was two
football fields away, but
stood out enough to
catch his eye. Dan said
"It's simplicity, interior
and paint told (me) to
make an offer, even
though there was no 'for
sale' sign. Luckily the
prospective seller
needed money to
complete another
project. We came to
terms, finalized the deal
and arranged for an auto
transport company to
bring it here. In Port
Charlotte, it was then I
found the Veteran Motor
Car Club of America. I
registered this long-
awaited love and have
been using this baby
every chance I get. The
looks and positive
comments have assured
me I made a good
choice."


SUN PHOTOS BY LEE ROYSTON
