Judge mulling fees in Sunshine suit


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


Anthony Lorenzo and the
city of Venice finally got their
day in court this week, but the
only issue they got to argue
was how much his attorneys
deserve to be paid.
The final action in Lorenzo's
Sunshine lawsuit against the
city was a two-day hearing on
Monday and Tuesday on the
reasonableness of the fees and
costs generated by his lawyers.
Attorney Jim Green, hired
by Lorenzo's attorneys to han-
dle the fee issue, portrayed
Lorenzo as a concerned citizen
who had attorney Andrea
Mogensen sue the city in May
2008 after he read newspaper
accounts of an alleged city
meeting in violation of the
Sunshine Law.
Investigation of that meet-
ing revealed potential viola-
tions of the state's Public Rec-
ords Law. Additional claims
and parties were added to the
lawsuit, which was settled
effective April 1.


SUN PHOTO BY BOB MUDGE
Attorney Steve Chase, right, cross-examines Andrea Mogensen, attor-
ney for Sunshine lawsuit plaintiff Anthony Lorenzo, at the fee hearing
in the case Monday.


In between, Mogensen and
legal consultant spent thou-
sands of hours on the case.
They were joined by attorneys
from the Carlton Fields law
firm in October. Ultimately the
lawyers generated a bill of
more than $800,000, which
they argued should be dou-
bled because of the public pol-
icy value of the case.
They justified the claim
because of the volume of e-
mails they uncovered, the


complexity of the case, the
number of defense attorneys
- and what they called the
defense attorneys' "Stalingrad
tactics" vigorous opposition
to every move they made.
"It was the most labor-
intensive case I've ever worked
on" testified Mogensen, who
said that included murder
cases.
It is also, they claimed, a
seminal case in public access
law. Sandra Chance, executive


of the Brechner Institute for
Freedom of Information, call-
ed it "cutting edge."
Disputed
Attorney Steve Chase, rep-
resenting the city in the fee
hearing, attacked the attor-
neys' case piece by piece.
Under cross-examination
by Chase, Mogensen acknowl-
edged that she had started
preparing the lawsuit almost
immediately after taking the
case on because that was what
Lorenzo wanted.
Testifying for the city, attor-
ney Richard Harrison, an ex-
pert in Public Record and Sun-
shine cases, questioned her
failure to attempt to resolve
any issues about the alleged
Sunshine violations prior to fil-
ing suit.
Chase also used Harrison to
challenge the hours the attor-
neys claimed and their hourly
rates. Matt Leish of Carlton
Fields, Mogensen's co-counsel,
said his standard rate is $385
per hour; she testified she
charged $300 in 2008 and gets


$325 now. Harrison said the
going rate in Venice would be
$260. He also said he thought
some of the time they were
claiming was duplicative, rep-
resented work on matters relat-
ing solely to other defendants
or was spent on dead ends.
He also disputed the claim
for a multiplier, characterizing
the case as not novel or signifi-
cant, and one that should have
settled much earlier. Each side

Troubled teens get a taste of jail


EDITOR'S NOTE: In order for
the Sun to get an all-access
pass for the 12-hour Camp X-
RAYD program and the
Sarasota County Correctional
Facility jail, none of the young
participants; their family mem-
bers or the Sarasota County jail
inmates could be identified.

BY ELAINE ALLEN-
EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

The 12-year-old who stole
a golf cart rushed into line
next to another 12-year-old
who had tried to take a dirt
bike. At the end of the line
was a much taller 17-year-old
who was caught with mari-
juana in his car.
With their street clothes in
a brown paper bag, each was
forced to wear an oversized,
orange, county-issued uni-
form with the word "JAIL" in
thick black letters on the
back.
It's 6 a.m. Saturday inside a
small office near the Knights
Trail Gun Range in Nokomis.
The 12 Sarasota County stu-
dents, including at least two
from the gifted program at
Pine View School, and others
from area middle and high
schools, showed up for a day-
long program for at-risk
youth that focuses on leader-
ship and communication
skills, as opposed to typical
boot camp tactics.
This particular morning
they lined up, but not fast
enough.
John Helme, Sarasota
County Sheriff's SWAT mem-
ber and one of three instruc-
tors, yelled at them.
"It now says 'jail' on your
back congratulations," he
said to the 84th group of stu-
dents participating in Camp
X-RAYD Examining Reality
About Your Decisions. "How
proud your parents must be
of you today. Some of you
don't know what move quick,
fast and in a hurry means.
But you will by the end of the

day."
Helme made the entire
group do push-ups. Within
seconds, some were tired and
unable to keep up with the
16-year deputy's pace.
"Keep going!" Helme yell-
ed as he sped up the pace.
"On your feet. Now, go sit
down. Quickly!"
Then each student was
handed small container.
"Go pee in a cup," he said.
"Do it now."
Everyone in the group
tested "clean."
Consequences
When they regrouped,
Sarasota County Sheriff Tom
Knight finished reviewing the
varied charges against the 10
boys and two girls: four
caught with marijuana, one
who allegedly was carrying a
firearm, several accused of
petty theft, one nabbed for
drunk and disorderly con-
duct, and a few for posses-

sion of alcohol.
Addressing the group,
Knight didn't yell.
"Poor decisions are what
got you here," he said. "You
need the fortitude to change.
Don't worry about other peo-
ple who influence you. They
aren't here for you right now,
are they? Mistakes are forgiv-
en, but poor decisions are
not. Think heavily about this
throughout the day."
Before instructor Michael
Cox lined them up for a
morning run, he reminded
students that their so-called
friends were "rolling around
in the sheets, laughing at you
for getting caught."
Students ran to the old
sheriff's obstacle course and
stretched as the sun began to
hit the horizon.
Disgusted it took four
minutes for the group to
maneuver walls, climb a 20-
foot wooden obstacle, and
crawl under barriers, Helme

told them to do it again.
"This is about teamwork,"
he said. "I don't care if you
don't know one another. Get
out there and help. If you
don't get this done in two
minutes and 40 seconds,
there will be consequences."
Some of the older, strong-
er boys dropped to their
knees as the girls climbed on
their backs to catapult them-
selves over the walls.
Two minutes, 17 seconds.
Much better.
Their next stop was the
Sarasota County Jail on Main
Street.
Outside the jail, they were
handcuffed and got their legs
shackled. Inside, 76-year-old
Sarasota County Corrections
officer Johnny Wong grilled
them about their poor deci-
sion-making.
Then they met a another
man most won't soon forget.

contributions to the community.



Our town benefits


from Our Town


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"Giving back" is the philos-
ophy of local pest control busi-
ness Our Town Lawn & Pest,
795 Commerce Drive, Suite 3,
Sarasota Business Park. Own-
ers John Flynn, Dennis Peer
and Keith Utt are commmiit-
ted to return a percentage of
their income to assist commu-
nity groups in Venice.
"We are sharing the success
of our business by giving 10
percent back to groups, orga-
nizations and booster clubs
when they sign up for our ser-
vice," said Flynn.
Currently their community
partner program supports the
South County Family YMCA in
Venice and Englewood, Venice
High School Baseball and
Epiphany Cathedral programs.
Because of the buying
power of their associate com-
pany, Turf Assets Chemical
Seed Distribution, through
which Flynn and Utt distribute
high-tech chemical fertilizers
to golf courses and commer-
cial nurseries, these items can
be used in the lawn care ser-
vice at a favorable pricing


structure to benefit the com-
munity partner program.
Flynn, who grew up on
Long Island, N.Y, graduated
high school in 1977 and for six
years was a pitcher in the
Detroit Tigers organization. He
has 40 years' combined turf
and ornamental experience in
golf course and lawn care ser-
vices specializing in agronom-
ic soil sciences, plant identifi-
cation, turf types and feed to
grow turf or crops.
For 25 years he was in sales
management, moving to
Venice in 2005 to start Turf As-
sets. As it grew, he added Our
Town Lawn & Pest. The com-
panies operate from the same
3,000-square-foot location
serving Venice, Sarasota and
Lakewood Ranch.
Flynn is an assistant varsity
and the head junior varsity
girls basketball coach at Venice
High School.
"We want to concentrate on
growing business with this
program where customers can
get the care and at the same
time we will donate something
back to their charity," he said.

is understood the operators
wanted to sell liquor and

"We are in negotiations for
the possibility of reopening a

Holic retiring
It was a sad event that result-

Venice in June 1991. The local
A.G. Edwards branch manager
had passed away and the com-
pany asked Holic to take over
the Bird Bay office, 700 U.S. 41
Bypass, which had six brokers
and six staff members.
His career began in 1982 as
a trainee in Aurora, Ill.; five
years later he became manager
of the Columbia, S.C., office.
Holic grew the Venice office
to 19 brokers and 20 staff
members, forcing a split in
1999 to two offices, continuing
to serve the north from Bird
Bay and opening a southern

In May 2007 the merger

in 2008 the company closed
the southern office. By the end

unfolded, leading to its acqui-
sition by Wells Fargo Advisers,
an affiliate of Wells Fargo Bank.
On Sept. 28 Holic retires, but

Investigator's business booms as economy worsens


BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER

Private investigator Roy
Winkelmann, 79, has seen his
workload double as the econo-
my gets weaker.
There's more theft and more
embezzlement, Winkelmann
said, but most unsettling is the
shattering effect on families.
Working with attorneys, he
has seen an increase in child
custody and abuse cases.
"People were living beyond
their limit," he said. "I see fam-
ilies being destroyed from the
inside, from the anguish and
stress of finances."
With offices in London and
Venice, Fla., Winkelmann has
been doing international pri-
vate investigation and coun-
terintelligence work since the
1950s.
His main work is counterin-
telligence.
"Mostly, they call me Holm-
es," he said of his associates.
After two years working as
an engineer on torpedo boats
for the Royal Navy, Winkel-
mann moved to the United
States from England in 1950.
Conscripted into the U.S.


Air Force, he became an inves-
tigator before starting a private
practice.
Winkelmann lived in Cape
Cod and commuted to Lon-
don before moving to Venice in
1996.
He designed and developed
early computerized electronic
surveillance countermeasures.
The equipment was designed
for his own use, he said, but he
sold the technology to govern-
ments.
In 1982, Winkelmann went
to Baghdad as part of an inves-
tigation team assembled by
Scotland Yard. He worked as
an intelligence officer for Mu-
khabarat, the Iraq govern-
ment's secret police, and said
he did not meet Saddam
Hussein but sat in a room with
him and his generals.
One of his most rewarding
jobs was debugging Saddam's
palaces.
Put to the test, he said he
and his teammates were
instructed to find all the bugs
without knowing how many
there were. They found two
more than expected, and
passed the test.
He investigated a dooms-


day gun being built by Iraq in
the United Kingdom, and
worked a case in Ireland where
a nightclub burned to the
ground and a night watchman
was killed. The fire, he said,
turned out to be an insurance
scam that involved the IRA.
One more thing
Government jobs are the
most lucrative but also the
riskiest, Winkelmann said. The
work is usually in war zones.
He has swept embassies
around the world for listening
devices.
Winkelmann also has visit-
ed most cities in the world,
although not as a tourist.
"It was hotel, work, hotel,
work," he said. "I've solved alot
of cases."
His unhappiest clients, he
said, are domestic ones, main-
ly in divorces.
Winkelmann talked quietly
with a British accent as he sat
at Panera Bread in Venice, an
unassuming man with a shock
of white hair and a serious,
careful-looking face. He wore
dress pants, a dress shirt and,
on his wrist, a Seiko watch.
"Being quiet is important to


my job," he said. "I don't want
anyone to hear. I'm not in this
for glory. You don't get medals
in this business. You get paid.
It's just not like TV"
The money has been good,
he said. It allowed him to sink a
bundle into his hobby, motor
racing.
"I had a team of world
champion car racers in Eng-
land: Yochen Rindt and Gra-
ham Hill," he said. "That was
my fun."
The work was sometimes
dangerous.
He showed a knife scar on
his right hand and points to his
jaw, eyebrow, arm, finger and
nose all broken at some
point.
"If you're good, you come
and go and no one knows
you've been," he said.
Here's some Winkelmann's
resume:
College lecturer on espi-
onage and counter-espionage,
California Department of
Education.
Appointed by Florida 12th
Circuit Court as criminal
investigator for public defend-
ers.
Member, World Asso-


ciation of Detectives.
He transported money for
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth
II and guarded Winston
Churchill's memoirs.
Winkelmann describes his
working style as obsessively
perfectionist. He has two
interns working for him. Like
most investigators, he said, he
prefers to work alone.
"I'm hard to work for," he
said.
A former secretary once told
him: "When you die, the lid of
your casket will open, your
hand will come out and you'll
say, 'One more thing...'"
Becoming a good private
investigator doesn't happen
overnight, he said. It takes
years and you never stop
learning. Every case is differ-
ent.
Winkelmann works so hard,
he said he loses track of days.
When it's Friday, it still feels
like Wednesday.
"I could never retire," he
said.

Dh1 I -H I from Page 1A

The FBI notified
Detert last week that
Kyle Tschiegg, the man
who threatened her
when she was running
for the Senate in 2008,
had pleaded guilty to
sending hate-filled e-
mails to Detert in
October 2008. The plea
agreement was
announced Friday.
"He pleaded guilty to
four charges, but there
are others," Detert said.
"From what I under-
stand from the FBI, is
that it was a negotiated
deal, and I think he's get-
ting nine years in jail."
At first Detert was
unsure if she would
write a victim impact
statement, but after

everything," Roland G.
"Kelly" Caldwell Jr. said
Tuesday. "I'm just going
to miss him. He and my
dad and I were the
founders of the company.
He was a long, dear fami-
ly friend."
Attorney Dan Boone
knew him first as a client
buying a second home in
Venice.
"He was a longtime
Rotarian and so was I,"
Boone said. "He became
active in city affairs and
local politics. We were
very much in touch with
each other. I was sad to
hear it but he is in a bet-
ter place now."
Meyerhoff first came
to the area as an officer of
the Brunswick Corpor-
ation, which owned
Mercury Marine, Cald-
well said. Mercury had a
test facility nearby at
Placida. In the 1970s he
acquired some condo-
miniums at the beach
where his four children
spent vacations during
college, Caldwell said.
He began his career
with Arthur Anderson &
Co. in 1947 after receiving
degrees from Miami Uni-
versity of Ohio and Ohio
Wesleyan University. Aft-
er 12 years with Ander-
son as a CPA, the young
man from Joliet, Ill., be-
came treasurer of Mac-
Gregor Sports.
Pulling together
He joined Brunswick
Corp. in 1963, serving the
company for some 25
years as vice president
and controller, vice presi-
dent of corporate affairs
and finally as vice presi-
dent of human resources.
While at Brunswick he
was selected to attend
the Advanced Manage-
ment Program of Har-
vard University. He was
associated with Bruns-
wick for 25 years.
Rather than slowing
down in retirement, he
became involved in other
ventures: He was presi-
dent and director of
Nokomis-based Charles
Oxford Corp., director of
Caldwell Trust and so
active in the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce
that he was named a
"Pillar of the Commun-
ity."
"This is a sad day for
Venice," Crow's Nest
owner Steve Harner said.
"He was a totally selfless
man. He never wanted
anything more than to
make Venice a better
place. The chamber, the
hospital, the State Col-
lege of Florida he was
a benefit to all those enti-
ties and everyone in
Venice benefited from his
involvement."


As chair of the board
of the former Venice
Hospital he was heavily
involved in negotiating
its sale to Bon Secours,
which provided the ini-
tial funding for The Ven-
ice Foundation, which is
known today as Gulf
Coast Community Foun-
dation ofVenice. Proud of
his part in the creation of
that perpetual legacy to

learning that Tschiegg
had been convicted of
armed robbery and
already spent time in
jail, she said her choice
was clear.
"He's already done jail
time, and it doesn't seem
to bother him," she said.
She isn't the only one
who thinks that way. The
United States Attorney
for the Southern District
of Ohio believes
Tschiegg is a career
offender. Tschiegg dis-
agrees.
The plea agreement
asks for a binding sen-
tencing range of 84 to
105 months if the judge
determines Tschiegg is
in fact a career offender
and a binding sentenc-
ing range of 70 to 87
months if he is not.


the area, he was also an
active board member of
the Manatee Community
College Foundation and
the Robert and Joan Lee
Boys & Girls Club.
Jim Woods worked
with him on the Bon Se-
cours Venice Hospital
Foundation board and
also on the Manatee Com-
munity College board
when Woods was CEO of
the Venice Campus of
MCC, today known as the


Another reason
Detert decided to write
the statement is because
getting only nine years
just doesn't seem right to
her after all the horrible
things he threatened to
do to people.
"Tschiegg told one
woman that she would
be receiving a box and
when she opened it her
brains would be on the
ceiling," Detert said.
Conditions
Tschiegg threatened
to kill Detert's entire
family, and told Detert in
an e-mail that he would
kill her with a high-pow-
ered rifle.
Detert said she spoke
with someone at the dis-
trict court on Monday
and was told that for the


State College of Florida.
"His greatest asset was
that he liked to work be-
hind the scenes, pulling
people together to get
things done," Woods said.
"He loved being treasurer.
That pretty much set the
direction of things."
Woods credited him
and his work on the clos-
ing of the Bon Secours
Venice Hospital Foun-
dation with securing the
assets for the college's


four counts that
Tschiegg pleaded guilty
to, he could get a maxi-
mum penalty of 35
years, but it could go as
low as five to nine years.
Tschiegg pleaded
guilty to interstate trans-
mission of threatening
communications, inter-
state extortion, comput-
er intrusion and identity
theft.
Tschiegg could also
receive fines up to
$250,000 and three
years' supervised release
on each count.
According to the plea
agreement, the United
States identified more
than 3,500 individuals or
entities as receiving cop-
ies of e-mails from him.

nursing program, which
was endowed in 2005
and became a four-year
program this year.
When he died, Jack
Meyerhoff was living
with his wife, Margie, at
Sunset Lake Village. Their
four children, Todd,
Greg, Keith and Deborah
Meloy, all live elsewhere.
Funeral plans were
pending at press time.

SUIT from Page 1 A


blamed the other for the failure of that to happen.
After testimony concluded, Bennett had one ques-
tion each for Green and Chase. Green's was whether
there is any authority for the award of attorneys' fees
for recovering attorneys' fees. He acknowledged the
law is slim and appears to be against him, but said the
statutes that provide for the recovery of fees in the
main case would be undermined if a plaintiff's award
is chopped by the very expense of claiming it.
Chase flatly said there is no authority to do it and,
in response to Bennett's question for him, that there is
no authority for a multiplier in Public Records or
Sunshine cases. Further, he said, the possibility of a
multiplier exists to help a potential plaintiff find a
lawyer. In this case Lorenzo hired the first lawyer he
talked to and she almost immediately filed suit. The
fact that the case got out of hand for her later is irrele-
vant, he said.
Green said the law requires an objective test -
whether the prospect of a multiplier would help over-
come difficulty in hiring a lawyer, not whether a plain-
tiff actually was able to.
Bennett said he wanted to review the attorneys' fee
exhibits before rendering his decision.

As budget-cutting pressure con-

we will see more discussions in com-

phrase "level of service."
That's just government-speak for
everything from police protection to me-
dian mowing, mosquito spraying to con-
struction services. Or library hours and
programs, book collections and DVDs.
It's healthy for any organization to
reassess its operations. That holds for
private businesses and public organi-
zations. But it should come as no sur-
prise that service levels will slip in
coming years, at least until the prop-
erty tax base begins to rise again. That
means commissioners will wrestle
even more with the painful issue of
service reductions.
Take libraries, for instance, as the Sara-
sota County Commission did last week
Libraries are dealing with lower


budgets while also seeing higher de-
mand. There's no complicated formu-
la involved here, Charlotte and Sara-
sota librarians have told us. During a
recession, more people turn to li-
braries for free services and products.
The numbers bear this out.
Charlotte County saw a 12-percent
surge in materials borrowed from
October 2008 through June 2009,
compared to the same months the
previous year. Four percent more
people came in the door. Computer
use was up 13 percent.
Over the same period, Sarasota
County saw a 12-percent increase in
materials borrowed. The door count
rose 8 percent, with a total average
monthly visitor count of 230,000.
Computer use was up 17 percent.
Looking for areas to trim during a
budget workshop last week, Sarasota
commissioners paused to ask a simple
question: Just what is a library's role?


Simple? Not these days.
Is a library a meeting place or just a
book collection? Should materials be
strictly educational or does a library
also provide entertainment? Aren't
electronic media now necessary?
What is essential and what is
superfluous? What should be free and
what should people pay for?
These questions may seem a bit
lofty, unless you take a look inside the
library to see what is there and what is
done there. Libraries both educate
and entertain. The line is often gray.
Walk the library aisles and you'll find
magazines and newspapers, from the
Gondolier Sun to Investor's Business
Daily. CDs, videotapes, DVDs and a
smattering of Blu-ray discs. Books on
tape and books on paper.
You can get CDs of Stan Getz, Charlie
Rich and Puccini's "Tosca." A video of
Wagner's "Parsifal" and "Benny Hill's
Video Sideshow." ADVD of "Buddhism,"


"Lord PeterWimsey" and "M*A*S*H."
Education or entertainment? Val-
uable or not?
Or take walk through the book
stacks. Novels, poetry, biographies, his-
tory and how-to guides. New titles, old
titles. "Death of a Salesman" and "The
Idiot's Guide to Computers." Dominick
Dunne, John Gregory Dunne and John
Donne. Nora Roberts and Fydor Dos-
toyevsky.
Do we not stock the latest Janet
Evanovich mystery because it's not
"educational?" But isn't reading -
any reading- educational in a sense?
Let's just say that what may seem a
simple question isn't necessarily so
when you dig deeper. Levels of service
issues always involve levels of detail.
These questions will come up
more, for libraries and median mow-
ing. If you've got a strong feeling, it
would be wise to express it before the
knife gets sharper.


Red tape galore


ai .f.FI . -U A= -


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


There is a small, quaint
neighborhood pub called the
Tap and Cork in the Island
Plaza Center that faces U.S. 41
Business between Miami and
Venice avenues.
Last year the loyal patrons
thought it would be great for
everyone to bring food on
Sunday for all to enjoy while
watching the NFL games in the
pub. It got more popular, and
one patron decided to bring a
grill so they could have ham-
burgers and hot dogs. All of
this for free.
Then someone complain-
ed. Who knows who, but
someone who needs to get a
life. So the city said the owners
needed a permit.
Megan, the owner, didn't
mind and went to apply for the
permit. In the process she
found that she needed ap-
proval from the county health
department.
She went to the health de-
partment, which told her it
could not give her a permit.
But the department said it was
OK to do what they were doing
because it was just about the
same as anyone grilling in
their back yard. Megan asked
that the health department
send a letter to the city stating
it was OK. It said it couldn't, it
didn't have jurisdiction. So
even though it is OK, it is not
OK to say it is OK.
To add to that, as Megan
approached the city again to
tell it of the dilemma, the city
said its hands were tied they
could not have the picnic with-
out the letter from health
department.
Oh, by the way, the city also
said they needed three per-
mits, one for every seven
Sunday.
Part of the reason for the
permit was they were using a
parking spot for the cooker
and parking spots are only for
cars. How absurd is this when
they are doing it on a Sunday
when no other businesses are
open? But the way the rule is
written it doesn't cover Sunday
football cookouts, so they
need a permit to use this
empty spot.
This all came out at Mayor
Ed Martin's breakfast with
Venice MainStreet. These are
the kinds of things the mayor
wants to find out about to see
if he can help. To that end, he
gave Megan his assistant's
number to assist in getting her


help. After the meeting, Megan
also ran into City Manager Isa-
ac Turner, who offered help.
I asked the mayor in the
meeting if the city could not
have an ombudsman who
could help people like Megan
through all the bureaucratic
red tape stupidity to a resolu-
tion in a relatively efficient
manner. (This applies to the
county too.) In fact, I men-
tioned that getting rid of red
tape for small businesses was a
part of his campaign platform.
He said it was hard to find
someone now with the smaller
staff resulting from layoffs. I
was disappointed with that
response. Since we don't have
much work, we should be able
to find someone who can get a
business a resolution.
Since then the city has not
found any solution and, in
essence by not finding a solu-
tion, has stopped the cook-
outs. It has also said she must
serve the food inside. So I
guess they can't take the food
off the cooker and put directly
on a person's plate they must
first put on a serving plate. So
much for finding a solution to
Megan's problem.
She now is thinking of ap-
plying for full restaurant status
and to that end is going to the
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation to get
a food-handling permit. That
likely will be a whole lot more
than she bargained for -
maybe another roll of red tape.
It is pretty sad when a busi-
ness wants to do something
relatively simple that likely will
build her business and provide
more revenue to the city and it
can't get help. And we tout our
country as a free country.
Hmm.
One thing I'd like to suggest
is using common sense. Oh, I
forgot that's not used in
government.


By's Crack: The only
thing worse than delin-
quent accounts is delin-
quent no accounts.


While in Tallahassee to see
the Seminoles football team
lose to Miami, I cashed in my
winning lottery ticket. I won
$1,000 on a $2 scratch-off tick-
et, which made a believer of
me that people really do win
once in a blue moon.
You have to cash in at a
regional center if you win
more than $600. Going to the
headquarters to get my money
was a learning experience.
First, it is not very plush, just
a plain ol' government building.
There was a room for the big
winner's presentations, where
they give out the big checks,
that also was not too special.
Mine wasn't big enough.

It's just talk, not euthanasia

Life experience. I'd like to say something about the so-called
death panel that the government is supposed to be getting
together, about how it's going to kill all the people over 70 so the
government doesn't have to give them health care. I don't know
what Republican thought this up, Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh.
The thing is, they just want to pay the doctors for doing what
they're doing now to talk to their patients as they approach old
age and help them. Tell them about hospice, tell them about liv-
ing wills. Right now the doctors don't get paid, and a lot of them
don't take the time. My mother certainly could have used the
help someone to lay out things the way they were as they
approached 80. Our doctor didn't get paid, so he didn't bother.


Kudos. I've heard enough
people putting the Venice po-
lice officers down for killing the
dogs. In my opinion, the Ven-
ice police are a community
saver in putting those vicious
dogs down. They could have
easily have attacked a child. It's
ignorant of people to be train-
ing their dogs like this and very
harmful to our communities.
So, kudos to the Venice police
officers for doing their job.
Like Rush. Mary Kay Rup-
pel, you should be ashamed of
yourself. You are a fear- and
hate-monger, the likes of R.
Limbaugh and G. Beck. I work
in a nursing home and all resi-
dents are consulted about ad-
vanced directives. They make
the decision after counseling
about what course to take if
they are facing end-of-life is-
sues.
I am in my late 60s and have
already made my needs and
desires known to my family in
writing. Do you not have
advanced directives yet? Get
with the program and quit the
fear-mongering. Oh, and by
the way, you are on Medicare,
are you not? You are on Social
Security, are you not? You do
receive mail, do you not? The
list goes on. These are govern-
ment-run programs. Shame,
shame for participating, Mary
Kay Ruppel. You are laughable.


Let 'em


Have It


Be like Mickey. The Disney
corporation vigorously de-
fends its logo and property
rights to protect its stockhold-
ers, but Disney grants excep-
tions for outside vendors to
use the Disney name if a prod-
uct is good and if the vendor is
willing to surrender most of
any profit increase to Disney.
Builders seek increased
heights in Venice because they
are extremely profitable. Ven-
ice should follow Disney's
business-like lead for granting
height exceptions. Exceptions
to building height will only be
considered if the developer


will give 80 percent of addi-
tional profits generated by the
increased height to the city of
Venice.
Bad example. I just got
home from a morning walk
and was appalled by the flyers
on Venice East attacking Oba-
ma. I feel that whoever is
responsible should receive a
heavy fine for littering. I picked
them up and put them in the
trash where they belong.
My 7-year-old grandson
was in the car with me the
other day and when he spotted
the poster of the freaky poster
of the Joker, he asked me,
"Could we go back and take
those down, Gram? They're
not nice." That's an awful ex-
pression that we're leaving for
our youth. There's something
the matter when adults can
put junk like that on our streets
and on our telephone poles.
Pier pressure. I'm calling in
reference to the Venice fishing
pier. We have a problem devel-
oping out there with the lan-
guage of the young folks. There
are no signs telling people to
stay 150 feet off the front part
of the pier for fishing purpos-
es. It's causing safety issues
with fishermen, as well as
arguments. It's getting way out
of hand.
Plus, the Venice Police De-
partment, after I've asked for it
to come out before something
escalated, responded, "Well, if
it escalates, call us. We'll have
somebody there." We definite-
ly have a problem. I've been
asking the city for three years
and nothing has been done.
This is a place where things
like this should not be taking
place. We need to police our
own back yard.
Moving day. Enough al-
ready. No more dog letters. No
more Ruppel slams well,
maybe a few. No more uncon-
ditional-surrender letters. Let's
move on.

You go into a small
waiting room with a cash
window like you might
see at the dog track. I had
to fill out a one-page
form, which was then
used to check me out.
After a wait of about 15
minutes, which I assum-
ed was enough time to
ensure there were no
liens, no nonpayment of
child support or IRS
problems, I got my mon-
ey along with two copies
of a W-2G form.
One gentleman also
cashing in $1,000 was in
the room way before me
and still had not got his
money as I left. I assume
there was a little hang-up
with one of the previous-
ly mentioned areas.

Don't miss Venice High
football Friday night. They
are very exciting.

I mentioned that the
replenishment of beach-
es came from the re-
serves. While it is saved
each year and put into a
reserve fund, it is not the
general reserve fund but
rather one especially for
beach nourishment.

It is interesting that
the city attorney at a
council meeting asked
the three council mem-
bers and mayor involved
in the Sunshine lawsuit
to testify on behalf of the
city at the Sunshine law-
suit. He thought it best
for them to defend the
city and the taxpayers in
this lawsuit. By the next
day he had been per-
suaded to not call them
to the stand.
They are his bosses, so
they have the right to ask
not to be called. They
have been very good at
not taking his advice any-
way, so at least this is
consistent.
All of them have
declared their innocence,
so it is hard to under-
stand why they would
not help the city. I won-
der how the judge will
feel about that.

This community just
lost one of the most won-
derful people who have
contributed to making it
a better place for over 25
years.
Jack Meyerhoff, whom
I saw Monday at lunch,
was very active behind
the scenes in making
Venice a better place. For
most of his years he was
involved in the develop-
ment of Venice Hospital
to make it what it is today
He was instrumental in
getting funds from the
defunct hospital founda-
tion directed to MCC
(now SCF) to expand its
nursing programs on a
continuing basis. He was
involved with MCC the
whole time he was here
after an extremely suc-
cessful corporate career.
Jack was a kind gentle-
man who has left his fin-
gerprints on our commu-
nity. If anyone deserved a
park to be named, after
him it is Jack.

Gondolier Sun is begin-
ning its annual football

Mother Nature

doing her thing

Amazing how things can
bounce back. Three years
ago, things looked dismal for
our area after red tide. In
addition, there were many
reports of a dead zone out in
the Gulf of Mexico as nothing
was alive no fish or any
sign of sea life. Things didn't
look good.
Today, everything is differ-
ent. Minutes ago, I had a
phone call from the East
Coast and up until a few days
ago, the sand fleas had disap-
peared from their shore. The
crabber informed me they
are back in great numbers.
The sand fleas became
scarce about six months ago.
Another example of sea life
disappearing would be my
sheepshead. The past two
years haven't been as good as
usual. I believe it was the
effects from the lack of
spawning during the red tide
years. Now, even though they
seem to have lockjaw, they
seem more plentiful than
usual for this time of year.
Mother Nature is doing
her job. Even the mangrove
snappers seem to be more
plentiful than usual this
month. They are every-
where. Many inshore snap-
pers are 13 to 14 inches.
Undersized snook are also
up for this time of year. This
is very encouraging for our
future snook fishery. Another
encouraging thing is the
flounder fishing has picked
up. They are catching some
16- to 22-inchers at the
beaches. The flounder like a
soft bait with a 1/4-ounce
jighead. The water also
seems clearer than usual.
Maybe this is the good old
days. Don't forget to patron-
ize our local bait and tackle
shops. In addition to having
everything you may need for
your fishing trip, they will tell
you where the fish are biting.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

O'Leary anchors Venice's O-line


As a freshman, Venice's
Brian O'Leary returned punts
and caught passes.
Gone are those days as the
senior is more than 4 inches
taller and has added 135
pounds to his frame as the 17-
year-old anchors Venice's
offensive line.
The 6-foot-2 1/2, 285-pound
center leads the potent Indians
offense, which is off to a 1-1
start after two games.
Venice's offense is averaging


403 yards a game,
and O'Leary is a
big reason.
"He's our best
offensive line-
man," said Venice
High offensive
line coach Dave
Butler. "He's very O'Leary
athletic for his
size and has exceptional feet.
That is his greatest asset. He is
pretty fast as he runs the 40
(yard dash) in 5.2 seconds,
which is exceptional for a kid
that size."
Not only is O'Leary 30


pounds heavier this year, he is
also stronger as he benches
350 pounds and squats 450
pounds.
"I feel a lot stronger as I can
push people out of the way,"
O'Leary said.
Last year, the three-year var-
sity player and two-year starter
played center. In the first game
against Oscar Smith High,
O'Leary was moved to left tack-
le, but he was back in his old
position in Venice's 28-20 win
over Braden River. He is also
getting some playing time on
defense at tackle.

Berkeley Prep hands Venice first loss

BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


In years past, Venice would
be happy with just playing a
match at the University of
South Florida's Sun Dome as
the Lady Indians did on
Saturday afternoon against
nationally ranked Tampa
Berkeley Prep.
This isn't one of those years.
The Lady Buccaneers got
key points late in two of the
three games as they handed
the Lady Indians its first loss of
the season in three games, 25-
17, 25-23, 25-22, in Tampa.
"Basically the bar for this
team has been raised," Venice
coach Brian Wheatley said.
"In the past we would have
said 'great experience, played
tough, played well' but the bot-
tom line is we didn't get it
done because we weren't good
enough. We have to get better.
Sure it's a different setting, but
if we want to get to Lakeland
(for the state championship)
we have to play better than
that. If is the big word in that
statement. If we do, hopefully
this experience will help us
out."
This isVenice's second meet-
ing with Berkeley Prep this sea-
son as the Lady Buccaneers
defeated Venice in four games
in the Preseason Classic.
In the first game, Berkeley
Prep (5-0), which is ranked
No. 13 in the nation by Prep-
volleyball.com, led 8-6 then
scored six straight thanks to
unforced errors to take a
commanding 13-6 cushion.
Venice (5-1) got within four
points, 19-15 after two straight
kills by junior Autumn Duyn,
who led the Lady Indians with
12 kills, but no closer.
"I thought Autumn Duyn
was swinging out of mind
tonight," Wheatley said. "She

who had nine kills total in the
match.
Venice led 16-14, before the
Lady Buccaneers got two kills

In the second game, Duyn, who

of four aces.
The Lady Indians continued to
serve tough in the second game and
had eight aces in the game.
Venice put in his bench in the sec-
ond and third games including fresh-
man setter Danika Yoder, who ended
with 13 assists.
"She is one of the most talented
incoming freshman setters we've ever
had as a freshman. She's learning the
game. It's her first varsity game ever
and she did a great job;' Wheatley
said.
Duyn, who had six kills, served
eight consecutive points in the third
game to give Venice an insurmount-
able 9-0 cushion.
Morgan Shattuck and Payton
Herschberger had six and four aces
each for the Lady Indians. Duyn had
nine digs while Brittany Burrows and
Danika Yoder had four and three digs,
respectively.

games for the Indians are

nents.
"I think it's important
to make the least amount
of mistakes as possible,"
O'Leary said.
"I hope we put a cou-
ple more pieces together
this week and I think we
will," Venice head coach
John Peacock said. "I
think you will see the
biggest jump this week.
This will be the first time
we will play two games in
a row and our third game
overall so I think you will
see the biggest improve-
ment so far."
Venice has a lot of
expectations heaped on
them this year with the
return of numerous
potential Division I play-
ers.
"That makes me ner-
vous sometimes that we
have to live up to expec-


stations O'Leary said.
"Trying to support the
community. It's a let-
down if you lose. You
want people to think the
most of you so if you lose
it's a disappointment for
the community."
O'Leary didn't get into
football by accident.
His father, Brian
O'Leary Sr. and uncle Bill
O'Leary played football
at Cardinal Mooney in
Sarasota then went on to
play college football.
"My dad never pushed
me as I was big into
baseball when I was real-
ly young," said O'Leary,
who started playing foot-
ball in fifth or sixth
grade.
He doesn't know when
his love for football start-
ed but has an idea.
"Once I started hitting
people," O'Leary said.
The atmosphere of the
game still gets to O'Leary.
"My favorite thing is

seeing the crowd as we
walk out of the tunnel,"
he said. "I get chills every
time. I get pumped."
Recruitment letters
from such colleges as
Syracuse, University of
South Florida, Rutgers,
Clemson and Purdue
have been filling his
mailbox.
O'Leary, who has an
offer from Murray State,
said if he had to make a
pick of a college right
now it would be USE
"I want to make a
decision a little early so I
get it out of the way and I
am not thinking about it
throughout the season,"
he said.
O'Leary has always
wanted to play college
football.
"I didn't think I would
play it as a lineman
though," he said.

two of the three games to win but we
just didn't make the big plays in the
end when we needed to."

JAIL from Page 1 A
'I don't want you here'
Longtime corrections officer Warren
Rickey is a former Army drill instructor.
He has dealt with thousands of trou-
bled youths in his career.
Less than a minute after meeting a
long-haired 12-year-old boy, Rickey
screamed that he didn't like him.
The bay where students lined up
straight and still rattled as Rickey
hollered, "I don't want you here."
"Are you crying?" he asked the boy
after about two minutes of ranting at
him. "Those are not real tears. You
thought you were bad on the streets,
but you are in my house now. You will
do what I tell you in my jail."
They were told to stand in line with
their hands above their heads as they
were unshackled.
Once inside the juvenile cells, stu-
dents saw the small, narrow window
inmates can barely look out. They
heard the sounds of the noisy steel toi-
let in the center of the cell.
No fluffy pillows, remote controls,
video games paddles or anything resem-
bling the comforts of homes was in the
cells. In the comer of the room, which is
watched by a guard 24 hours a day, was a
neat pile of board games including Sorry,
Scrabble, Dominoes and Chess, and
three 1,000-piece puzzles.
The old showers had no shampoo,
soap, privacy curtains or towels just
an open space with two shower heads.
Three juvenile inmates awaiting life
sentences in prison relished a chance
to talk to young people who hadn't
made such a major mistake yet.
A young inmate who was charged
with attempted murder for trying to kill
his mother said his family doesn't come
to visit him; his friends don't either.
"They aren't really called friends,"
another inmate told the group. "They
are more like associates you commit
crimes with."
Rickey told the group that the TVs
are controlled by guards. Once they
find the inmates like one show too
much, they change the channel.
"I would put it on Barney all day
long," he said.
Push-ups for mistakes
The students were led up stairs.
Surrounded by razor wire were two
cages.
"This is where an inmate will spend
three hours a week outside in the open
air," Rickey told the group. He made
them walk the four corners, touching

want him in his jail.


each one. One girl missed a corner.
Rickey singled her out and made the
others do push-ups for her mistake.
Then the group separated. The two
girls were taken to the female cells and
the 10 boys were escorted to speak to
the male inmates.
Female inmates, who were eating
two gritty hot dogs plopped on cold
beans, a pile of lettuce, a piece of bread,
a cookie and bland juice, were quick to
tell the young girls there isn't enough
toilet paper in the cells.
"It creates a problem," one inmate
said. "I miss the little things like having
ice in my soda or getting a Q-Tip when
I want one."
Another said that fights sometimes
can last as long as an hour before they
are broken up. One inmate said she has
a 16-year-old son who needs her, but
she is going to state prison soon to
serve her time and to take responsibili-
ty for her actions.
For 15 minutes, inmates explained
howtheywere victims of their own choic-
es. One said she is considered a "habitual
offender" for getting in trouble 20 years
ago and again three months ago.
"I missed my daughter's gradua-
tion," she told the girls. "She will never
forgive me for that because I was in jail
and wasn't there for her."
Sexual assaults common
The 15 minutes spent with male
inmates may have been the most life-
changing for most of the 10 young boys.
"I was told to keep getting in trouble


again so I would come back here as
fresh meat," said the 17-year-old Camp
X-RAYD participant who asked an
instructor about the number of rapes in
jail.
"It's worse for the women," Helme
said. "Usually by the first night they are
there, they are raped. For the men, it
happens pretty quickly too. If you go to
jail, there is a huge chance you will be
raped."
After that session, the group sat qui-
etly in the van on the way to Sarasota
Memorial Hospital.
Once inside, they met Pam Man-
ning, the clinical coordinator, who said
that some teens are dropped off at the
front door of the hospital while suffer-
ing an overdose in a "pool of vomit."
"Their 'so-called friends' don't even
stick around to see if they lived or died,"
she said, adding that the youngest per-
son she has seen with alcohol poison-
ing or an overdose was 10. "We put
these large tubes down your throat and
nose. We don't care if it causes a nose
bleed or it hurts. Our job is to keep you
breathing."
Students were taken aback to learn
that the medical staff cuts off the cloth-
ing of overdose patients, and leaving
them mostly naked while working to
stabilize them.
"We aren't very compassionate
toward you, but we are to your parents
and family who have to see you in this


condition," she said.
Then she asked if anyone wanted a
small taste of the two bottles of char-
coal that are poured down an overdose
victim's throat.
"Gross" was the word used to de-
scribe the taste.
Students walked over to the nearby
county morgue to meet Greg Skeen. At
first, the seven-year forensic autopsy
technician was a little distracted by a
phone call about the anticipated arrival
of a 20-year-old male cadaver an
overdose victim who would be sched-
uled for an autopsy the next day.
Drug victims
Skeen showed the group that ordinary
pruning shears could be used instead of
a fancy $2,500 tool to spread open ribs.
He said that he uses a long needle to
extract fluids from the eyeball area.
"It will tell me all drugs in a person's
system," he said. "We hear a lot that lit-
tle Johnny was a great kid. He just said
he was feeling tired and went to sleep
and never woke up."
Skeen said he didn't want to bore the
students by telling them not to take
drugs. Instead, he showed the group
several photos of bloody teeth and a
woman's jaw.
"Neighbors called the police because
they heard screaming in an apartment,"
he said. "Twelve minutes later, when
police arrived, they saw what was a pret-
ty, blonde-haired, 17-year-old girl had
pulled out all of her teeth with pliers and
no anesthetic because she thought
worms and insects were coming out of
her mouth. She was high on metham-
phetamines. They are prevalent in
DeSoto County right now."
Teens were amazed to learn the
average heart weighs 350 grams, but a
heart that has been damaged by co-
caine or pills weighs about 900 grams.
At the end of the day, the teens head-
ed back to the office where they began
their early morning journey.
At 6 p.m., parents reunited with their
children.
"They are going to tell you they ran
20 miles and did 400 push-ups," Helme
said. "It's not true. Do not feel sorry for
them or baby them.
"They took responsibility for their
own actions. They completed the day.
They earned their tired arms and legs.
Make them cut the lawn tomorrow.
Keep them busy."

Birds flock to docks and back yards in area


PHOTOS COURTESY OF ABBIE BANKS
Above, these two immature white ibis were photographed sitting on Abbie Banks' dock railing in her
back yard in Rotonda West. They will eventually mature and be entirely white. The ibis forage for food
along the bank of the canal.
Left, almost every evening at dusk this huge great blue heron flies in for a wobbly landing on top of the
purple martin condo. The martins are long gone now.

"People are really into
orchids," Mutrie said. "I think
it's because they make you
smile just to look at them."
Mutrie chooses high-end
silk orchids and ages the clay
pots in which they are dis-
played.
'Aside from the donation
that a woman is making to the
Women's Resource Center by
purchasing an orchid, I hope it
will beautify her home and
make her smile," Mutrie said.
Forging ahead
Today, a divorce and a fore-
closure are pending for Mutrie.
She has found a part-time job
at Epiphany Cathedral School
and continues her volunteer
work at the center.
And there is pain daily,


JEWELRY SOUGHT
The Women's Resource
Center is looking for women
who would like to donate
their fine jewelry to benefit
the center through the silent
auction during the Fall
Gathering. If you have such
jewelry and are willing to
donate it, contact the Venice
WRC at 485-9724.
excruciating pain.
"I can't take my pain med-
ication as often as it is pre-
scribed because it makes me
ill," she said. "So, I try to man-
age the pain as best I can
myself."
Mutrie has moved in with
her brother, but that isn't
where she wants to be. She


wants her own space and for
her brother to be able to have
his as well. But Mutrie is a real-
ist and recognizes that dream
will take a little more time to
become a reality.
As Mutrie works through
the divorce and foreclosure,
she is creating her future.
"I'm doing everything I can
to feel better physically and
I'm creating a custom floral-
design business part-time out
of the house," she said. "I have
to have a business that works
with my disability."
Mutrie said she likes the
challenge of custom work.
"I like going into someone's
home and finding the places
that need to be accented," she
said. "I check out the client's

LUNCHEON
The Fall Gathering luncheon, Purses and Pearls, will be held
Nov. 6, at 11 a.m. at Plantation Golf & Country Club, 500
Rockley Road, Venice. The theme was chosen because the
speaker, Deb DiSandro, uses purses to bring out the "purse-
onalities" of guests. DiSandro also believes the "purse-abilities"
for women are endless. The pearls represent the 30 years that
the WRC has been empowering women to achieve their full
emotional and economic potential through education, support,
networking and referrals. Challenge graduates will be modeling
clothing from the WRC consignment store Encore! & more. For
ticket information, visit www.thewomensresoucecenter.org.


choices."
Then armed with a swatch of
fabric or carpet from the client,
Mutrie roams the wholesalers'
aisles to see which flowers make
the fabric pop. Once the selec-
tions have been made, Mutrie
goes home to create the floral
arrangement that will reflect the


client's tastes and personality.
Taking one day at a time
and exploring her own unique
possibilities give Mutrie the
wisdom and empathy she
needs to continue her out-
reach to women who seek help
from the WRC.

Lions Club to hold event for White Cane Awareness Day


STATE OF FLORIDA
WHITE CANE LAW
FL Statute 316.1301
Traffic Regulations to assist
blind persons
It is unlawful for any per-
son, unless totally or partially
blind or otherwise incapacitat-
ed, while on any public street
or highway, to carry in a raised
or extended position a cane or
walking stick which is white in
color or white tipped with red.
A driver must come to a
stop before reaching a loca-
tion where a blind pedestrian
is crossing, or attempting to
cross, a public street or high-
way. For purposes of this law,
a blind pedestrian is a pedes-
trian guided by a dog guide or
carrying in a raised or extend-
ed position, a white cane (or
white cane tipped with red).
Before proceeding, the driver
must take precaution to avoid
injuring the pedestrian.
Nothing contained in this
section shall be construed to
deprive any totally or partially
blind or otherwise incapaci-
tated person not carrying
such a cane or walking stick,
or not being guided by a
dog, of the rights and privi-
leges conferred by law upon
pedestrians crossing streets
or highways. The failure of
any such person to carry a
cane or walking stick or to be
guided by a dog shall not be
considered comparative neg-
ligence, nor shall such failure
be admissible as evidence in
the trial of any civil action
with regard to negligence.


FROM THE VENICE
LIONS CLUB

On Oct. 14, Venice Lions
Club members once again
will be assisting our local
vision-impaired neigh-
bors navigate through
the streets in Venice.
The Lions Club mem-
bers and the visually
impaired people will
first meet at the Gazebo
in Venice at 10:30 a.m.
for socializing.
At about 11 a.m., they
will start a short walk
across the parking lot to
Venice Avenue, cross
Venice Avenue and walk to
U.S. 41, cross U.S. 41
and walk back to Venice
Avenue, continuing on
to the parking lot.
The Venice police will
guide the traffic and assist
in other ways.
The event will be
concluded with lunch at
the Boca Royale Golf &
Country Club, 1601 Engle-
wood Road, Englewood.
It is the law in Florida as
well as the rest of the coun-
try that, "a driver must
come to a stop before

reaching a location where
a blind pedestrian is cross-
ing, or attempting to cross,
a public street or highway."
Also, "It is unlawful for
any person, unless totally
or partially blind or other-
wise incapacitated, while
on any public street or


highway, to carry in a
raised or extended posi-
tion a cane or walking stick
which is white in color or
white-tipped with red."
White Cane
Awareness Day
President Lyndon B.


Johnson, along with
Congress, signed a joint
resolution in 1964 as a
way to increase knowl-
edge among Americans


that the white cane is a
tool used by the blind and
visually impaired, and
also a tool that helps them
live more independently.

STAYING ON YOUR FEET


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
If you've been suffering from arthritis
for years and the condition has only gotten
worse, you may be able to benefit from
treatment by your doctor of chiropractic.
Arthritis is a mysterious disease for which
there is no known cure, but with proper
care and treatment you have a good chance
of staying on your feet, keeping mobile
and active and enjoying life more.
Step one will be an examination of
your spinal column for any misalignments


that may be causing nerve pressure or
irritation and contributing to the pain and
discomfort of arthritis. Using gentle
manipulative techniques, your doctor of
chiropractic will work to correct any
misalignments as well as improve the
range of motion in the affected joints.
Exercise routines to improve mobility may
also be prescribed. Staying on your feet,
being able to move about freely is
important to your sense of well-being.
Chiropractic treatment may bring you the
help you need.

FROM NAPSA


Whether it's the begin-
ning of the school year or
well into the semester,
sometimes helping a
child succeed academi-
cally means understand-
ing how he or she learns
best.
Experts have said chil-
dren's individual learning
styles are linked to one or
more of their senses and
can generally be classi-
fied in one of four cate-
gories: visual, auditory,
kinesthetic or tactile.
Knowing the group in
which your child falls can
help him or her over-
come scholastic obsta-
cles and, in many cases,
move to the head of the
class.
"Successful learning
happens when we make
a connection between
what we are attempting
to learn and our personal
strengths," said Dr. Mary
Mokris, an education
specialist for Kumon
Math and Reading Cen-
ters. "When the connec-
tion is made, learning is
easy. When it isn't, diffi-
culty follows." She offer-
ed these tips for identify-
ing your child's learning
style:
Seeing is believing
Visual learners learn
best when "shown" how
to do something. They
thrive on written direc-
tions. If your child is a
visual learner, it could be
best for him or her to
write and rewrite a
spelling list he or she is
studying to see the letters
come together on the
page.
All ears
Auditory learners re-
tain more information
from what they hear than
read. Auditory learners
can make an audio re-
cording of themselves
spelling out words on a
spelling list so they can
replay them and spell
along with the tape.
Move on
Kinesthetic learners ex-
press themselves through
movement and often
have trouble sitting still.
To learn a spelling list, a
kinesthetic learner can
use his or her body to
form the letters, can put
the words on objects or
can recite the spelling of
words while jumping


rope.
Feeling smart
Tactile learners need
to feel and manipulate
objects with hands-on
experience in order to
learn best. They can use
magnetic letters to spell
out spelling words on the
refrigerator or form the
letters in clay or sand.
"If you know your
child's strongest learning
style, share this informa-
tion with the teacher,"
said Mokris.
"That can help them
adapt certain lessons
appropriately."
At Kumon Math and
Reading Centers, instruc-
tors offer an oral reading
component to the read-
ing program and math
manipulatives such as
the number board in the
math program. The pro-
gram helps more than 4
million children in 45
countries.

FROM GIRLS INC. OF
SARASOTA COUNTY

On Friday, Sept. 11, 12
middle school girls from
Girls Inc. of Sarasota
County participated in a
beach cleanup as a day-
of-service project. The
service day focuses on
creating change in the
community and encour-
aging girls to recognize
the value of volun-
teerism.
Girls Inc. of Sarasota
County was one of 40
Girls Inc. organizations
across the nation to hold
a youth-led United We
Serve Day of Service in
2009.
Girls Inc. organiza-
tions worked with the
girls they serve to choose
projects to address the
needs of their own com-
munities, including city,
beach and park beautifi-
cation efforts, a nonvio-
lence communication
campaign, urban farm-
ing and local environ-
mental awareness.

said Joyce Roche,

This summer, the girls
brainstormed areas of
need in their communi-
ty.
Because the summer
months bring extra traf-
fic to the local beach and
more litter, beach
cleanup was a natural fit.
"Our girls recognized
that our local beaches
are treasured and need
to be cared for by all.
Their ability to recognize
the importance of keep-
ing our beaches clean
shows how connected
they are to the needs of
our community," said
Stephania Feltz, execu-

FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

Debbie Steranko opened
her home on a Sunday after-
noon for girls from the
Venice High School volley-
ball team, their moms and
friends to add a little bling to
their lives. At a jewelry party
they learned all that glitters
is not gold. It can be silver,
bronze and even faux.
Money raised pays travel


expenses. The team has been
invited to play in a presti-
gious tournament in Chicago
in October.
A historic event
Dorothy Korwek coordi-
nated a perfect field trip
sponsored by the Triangle
Inn Association.
A busload of history buffs
traveled to the new Tampa
Bay History Center, then
shopped till they dropped
at the new Ikea store in
Tampa. The two places are
within five minutes of each
other. The afternoon includ-
ed lunch at the Columbia
Cafe located inside the
museum.
Put this history center on
your list of things to do.
Adults and children will
enjoy hands-on exhibits,
films and displays that
teach about local history. It


is a perfect place to take
out-of-town guests. For
information, call (813) 228-
0097 or visit tampabay
historycenter.org.
It's a party
Family and friends gath-
ered at the home of David
and Diana Long to wish
Kathryn King a happy 95th
birthday. This retired teacher
has been a longtime member
of the AAUW and for 25 years
a leader in sponsoring
Academic Olympics for the
students in Sarasota County.
Among the guests at the
party was AAUW president
Shirley Reed.
The potluck dinner was a
bittersweet event as Kathryn
will soon be moving to
Winter Haven. Everyone
wishes this terrific lady a
continued happy life as she
begins her new adventures.


One of our best
The special person of this
week is Marguerite Cos-
tanzo. This nice lady is a vol-
leyball booster club mom.
She is a full-time PE. teacher
in North Port, a wife and a
community volunteer extra-
ordinaire. This year she is
raising funds for the volley-
ball team by taking charge of
its annual yearbook. Last
year she coordinated the
serving of pizzas at the
games during intermission.
RecentlyMarguerite brought
the jewelry party in as a
fundraiser for the volleyball
booster club. This kind lady is
one of those women who
never stops giving. Her ener-
gy seems boundless and her
heart committed to serving
others. She is one of the vol-
leyball booster club moms
who make Venice a great
place to live.

Enjoy the magic in
Orlando this month
It is Magical Dining Month in
Orlando. How is that for
another excuse to visit the

Even diehard theme park

places in this world of ours offer
more variety than Orlando. For
$30, plus tax and tip, you can
enjoy a three-course prix fixe
meal at places like Cuba Libre
Restaurant & Rum Bar, Emeril's
Restaurant Orlando or Tchoup
Chop or Fulton's Crab House.
For steak fans, there is Morton's.
For $20 per person, plus tax
and tip, enjoy a prix fixe meal at a
casual dining place such as B.B.
King's Blues Club, Brio Tuscan
Grille at the mall at Millenia or
Winter Park, Hannibal's on the
Square or Tony Roma's. See the
entire list at www.orlandomagic-
dining.com.
$1 per meal will be donated to a
local charity and you will not
only get a bargain but also the
chance to try someplace new.
Additional restaurants are still
being added so check the list
before you head to Orlando this
month.
Visitwww.olandomagicaldining.om
or call 407-363-5872

fills the lawn area
behind the performing
arts hall, where people
can watch the sun go
down as the music
cranks up. People bring
blankets and lawn chairs
to kick off their weekend
in a musical manner.
This year's series played
homage to the 40th

the participants had not
even been born when

There is more jungle at Jungle Gardens


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Sarasota's famed
Jungle Gardens has
more creatures and
plants.
The beauty is that the
new additions new
minimal care.
Students from neigh-
boring Ringling College
of Art and Design took
brushes in hand to paint
a 250-foot by 6-foot
jungle-themed mural on
the fence surrounding
the children play-
ground. They painted
monkeys and macaws,
alligators and snakes


and even a few more
flamingoes. Jungle
Gardens can never have
too many flamingoes.
The major work was
accomplished in late
August after extensive
planning. Funded by
Leslie Glass the mural
was also educational for
the students. The design
was planned by second
and fourth-year stu-
dents and projected
onto canvas. Incoming
freshmen comprised
most of the painters on
site.
The mural is the first
major step in the


development of the
children's playground,
which will be further
enhanced with new
equipment and a new
surface in the weeks and
months to come.
If you have not been
to Jungle Gardens, or
have not been lately,
take a drive into Saraso-
ta. It is at 3701 Bay
SHore Road, south of
the John and Mable
Ringling Museum of Art.
Heading north on North
Tamiami Trail, watch for
the sign on your left,
leading back to Bay
Shore.

Su Byron awarded fellowship by the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Su Byron of Sarasota will
finally get to work on the
play in her head or a
novel or a book.
She will do it at the
Virginia Center for the
Creative Arts (VCCA near
Sweet Briar College in the
foothills of the Blue Ridge
Mountains in rural
Virginia. The center just
notified her that she is
among the latest group of
fellowship winners at the
working retreat for
visual artists, writers and
composers.
"This is the biggest gift I
could ever imagine in the
entire world," Byron said
following her notification
of the prestigious honor.
"Every day I put aside five
minutes to think about
what I might do while
there."
Fellows may stay as long
as eight weeks in the cozy
environment on the Mount


PHOTO COURTESY OF SU BYRON
Writer Su Byron of Sarasota recently won a fellowship from the Virginia Center for the
Creative Arts.


St. Angelo site, which has
been leased from Sweet
Briar for more than a
quarter of a century. She
will be provided with a
private room, three meals


daily and no distractions
other than the creative
energy flowing from the
other artists, writers and
musicians there at the
same time. Byron will


attend for two weeks,
Beginning Nov. 19.
By day the Sarasota
resident is a free-lance
publicist for a number of
organizations and individ-


uals. Although she said she
has a collection of poetry
written these past 25 years
and other assorted work
and ideas, her current job
has left her little time to
concentrate on such
things.
"I would love to take that
time and just be creative
and write," she said. "I lived
in Paris and in NewYork
and actually became
somewhat known as a
poet. I did a lot of readings
but then I stopped per-
forming and thinking
about publishing, but I
treasure the stuff I have
written."
The VCCA will give her
that time. Considered one
of the nation's oldest year-
round artist communities,
VCCA has become known
for the nearly 4,000 fellows
who have worked there
since its founding in 1971
and then gone on to win
acclaim in print, in

Similar to the Hermitage
in Englewood, the retreat is
sponsored by grants and
private donations.
Unlike the Hermitage, it
is possible to apply for a
VCCA Fellowship.
"You actually can apply
and I did," she said. "I did
not expect to be given a
fellowship at all because I
haven't published a lot but
they offered me eight
weeks."
Because of her free-lance
commitments, she
accepted two weeks.
Byron heard about it
from Pat Kaufman, another
area writer, who had a
fellowship there.
