Nolen plan to guide VHS rebuild


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

The John Nolen plan for
Venice will be incorporated
into the design plans for
rebuilding Venice High School,
said Dan Tarczynski, partner at
SchenkelShultz Architecture,
of Orlando, at the Monday
night School Advisory Com-
mittee meeting.
"We will superimpose No-
len's plans onto the school's,
but will also have today's plans


Libraries


hours to


be more


uniform

BY ANNE
KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

Beginning Oct. 5, all eight
county libraries will operate
with more uniform hours. And
staff members from at least
two of those locations think
the changes will be positive
ones.
The new hours of operation
are designed to provide greater
consistency of service
throughout the system.
"We are feeling the pres-
sures of the current economic
downturn along with families,
businesses and nonprofit
organizations, and adjusting
the schedule means libraries
will operate more efficiently
while continuing to offer cus-
tomers the best service possi-
ble," said Sarabeth Kalajian,
general manager for Sarasota
County libraries.
The change in operating
hours is the result of a reduc-
tion in the library system's
budget, due to property tax
legislation passed in Talla-
hassee and the decline in local
property values. Property
taxes are the major source of
funding for libraries, and the
decline in property values of
an estimated $16 billion over
the last two years has resulted
in less funding.
"We have created a sched-
ule that results in at least one
library open within a geo-
graphic area during the service
hours," Kalajian said. "Monday
through Saturday, if one
library is closed, the next near-

for technology, safety and
security," Tarczynski said.
The firm came up with the
idea a couple of weeks after
finding out it had been hired


by the Sarasota County School
District for the VHS rebuild.
SchenkelShultz has design-
ed a lot of schools and is cur-
rently the architect for SCTI
(Sarasota County Technical
Institute), a multiyear project.
"It was their idea to stay
with the Nolen plan," said Sue
Bouffard, district project man-
ager of construction services.
"They researched the city and
learned how the city got start-
ed and decided to stay within
Nolen's plan."


Groundbreaking should take
place in August 2010, ac-
cording to Bouffard.
W.G. Mills was selected as
construction manager a cou-
ple weeks after SchenkelShultz
was hired. Mills just finished
building the new Riverview
High School in Sarasota and a
high school in Manatee Coun-
ty. It has done work for the
school district for many years
and is heavily involved in the
design meetings for the VHS
rebuild, Bouffard said.

K-9 volunteer: gave their daughter back'


BY CHRISTINE HAWES
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Tami Treadway's daugh-
ter, now an adult, used to
grow frustrated at her moth-
er's many hours away from
home, training search-and-
rescue dogs to scour wilder-
ness areas in search of lost
people.
So Treadway was brought
to tears in late August when
her daughter, after watching
her mother testify in the trial
of Denise Amber Lee's killer,
told her that she "realized
why I did what I did."
"I gave that family their
daughter back," said Tread-
way, who with her dog Sekou
had pinpointed the remote


area where Lee, a 21-year-
old North Port mother of
two, was murdered and
buried in January 2008. "Not
in the way I would have
wanted to, but I helped them
find closure."
Treadway has been a
member of the Sarasota K-9
Search & Rescue team for 12
years, volunteering up to 20
hours a week to train rescue
dogs that also live with her,
ensure medical care for the
team's other canines and
respond to calls for help in
seeking lost Alzheimer's
patients and missing chil-
dren or adults.
Even though she and the
other 34 team members
learn out of necessity and


professionalism to keep their
distance from their some-
times horrific missions, Tread-
way said she was unable to
maintain that separateness
while searching for Lee.
"Denise was the same age
as my daughter. She had
children that are about the
same age as my grandchil-
dren. My daughter was
somewhat of a stay-at-home
mom, just like Denise. She
lived in North Port, and I live
in North Port," Treadway
said. "I don't normally try to
get emotionally into the
cases we go on, but this one
was different. This one im-
pacted me greatly because of

"When the schematics are
done, Mills will do the costing.
They primarily plan the types
of structural systems and
materials that go into a pro-
ject," she said.

pretty much in place, she said.

Task force

to try new

approach

BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

After two of its members
vented about their feeling that
they got the cold shoulder at a
recent Venice City Council
meeting, the city's Economic
Development Task Force has
decided to try some new tac-
tics.
EDTF Chair Paula Dumas
had appeared before council to
present her board's recom-
mendation that the city pre-
pare a request for qualifica-
tions to solicit ideas for devel-
opment at the Venice Mu-
nicipal Airport and start a com-
munity discussion about its
future role in the city's econo-
my. Her board would be willing
to take the task on, she told
council.
According to Dumas and
EDTF member Trent Young,
who also attended the council
meeting, her audience wasn't
very receptive.
"Essentially, the message I
received from council was that
no, they were not interested,"
she said at Wednesday's EDTF
meeting. "I feel that I was sum-
marily dismissed.
"And I was asked point-
blank if this was the only thing
we've been working on for a
year."
It isn't, she said, but the air-
port presents more timely eco-
nomic opportunities than, for
example, the Seaboard area,
where land-ownwership issues
complicate things. And the city
is in the process of developing
a new airport master plan into
which the board has tried to
have some input on economic
issues.

High Holy Days begin Judaism's year


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


At sundown Friday, Jews
began the observance of the
High Holy Days, their most
sacred time.
The holidays begin with
Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New
Year, and continue for 10 days
through to the Day of Atone-
ment, Yom Kippur, on Mon-
day, Sept. 28. The holidays will
end with a fast break meal fol-
lowing the final service.
Jewish holidays begin at
sundown and end at nightfall
of the calendar day.
As the Jewish New Year,


5770, begins, Jews become in-
trospective, looking back on
the preceding year and aton-
ing for sins they might have
committed by taking invento-
ry of their actions. Last night's
Kol Nidre observances by
members and guests of the
Jewish Center of Venice and
the Chabad of Venice signaled
the beginning of the period,
which also is known as the
Days of Awe.
Many Jews will go to temple
daily during these days. Last
night's service and the final Kol
Nidre service, signaling the
end of the High Holy Days are
often the most attended, with


reservations required in most
temples.
Rabbi Anne Campbell
White of the Jewish Center of
Venice and Rabbi Sholom
Schmerling of the Chabad
Jewish Center will lead the ser-
vices for their respective con-
gregations.
Custom states that during
Rosh Hashana, God writes the
names of those who will live
and those who will die in the
coming year into special
books.
"On Rosh Hashana it is writ-
ten," White said last year at this

What is a


SEER rating?

BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

In the heating and air-conditioning
world the "SEER" rating is a common
term. SEER stands for seasonal energy
efficiency ratio. When looking to replace
your current air conditioning system,
consider this: the higher the SEER rating,
the more energy-efficient the unit.
All newly produced residential air con-
ditioners sold in the United States must
have a minimum SEER rating of 13, while
Energy Star-qualified systems must have
at least a 14 rating. SEER ratings of up to
20 are available.
To determine ratings, tests are con-
ducted under rigid guidelines in a labora-
tory under specific environmental condi-
tions required by the U.S. Department of
Energy.
Higher SEER ratings are achieved
through the development of newer and
improved technology, which result in a
higher initial investment but will signifi-
cantly lower your heating and cooling
expenses. A friend recently had an 18
SEER air-conditioning unit installed and
claims none of her monthly summer elec-
tric bills has exceeded $100.
A qualified contractor can help you
determine savings and payback.
The planet it's worth saving.

Schools budget a wash on property taxes


BY CHRISTINE HAWES
SUN CORRESPONDENT


Wrapping up a 10-month
process, the Sarasota County
School Board on Tuesday
approved its $910 million budget
for 2009-10, built around a millage
rate that increased 5.4 percent
from last year and likely will cost
property owners nothing because
of an 11-percent drop countywide
in property values.
For nonhomesteaded property
owners, the new millage rate
means a school tax bill of about
$742 for a property valued at
$100,000, and a tax bill of about
$1,485 for a property valued at
$200,000. School property taxes are
calculated by multiplying the mill-
age rate times $1 for every $1,000
worth of taxable property value.
The increase in this year's bud-
get from last year's total of $873
million is due to a combination of
federal stimulus money and debt
the district has taken on to fund


renovations at Booker and Venice
high schools, said deputy chief
operating officer Al Weidner.
School board members took a
few moments to put their budget
and millage rate into a statewide
context.
"Unlike other districts, the
Sarasota School Board voted not to
increase any millage rates on the
citizens of Sarasota County," said
board member Kathy Kleinlein.
'Anything increased was mandat-
ed by the state, over which we had
no control."
Kleinlein was referring to the
overall millage rate increase from
last year's rate of 7.045, an increase
required by the state to offset its
declining sales tax revenue,
Weidner said.
Board member Shirley Brown
noted the same about a letter the
School Board sent to all property
owners about revised Truth in
Millage notices, which informed
residents of a much smaller state-
required millage rate increase to
recoup declining property values.


"It was the state that required us
to send out those letters," she said.
"It was not something we chose to
do. I don't think we can be accused
of wasting money."
That millage rate increase, of
0.018, was omitted from the original
TRIM notices sent in early August
because of a miscommunication
between the state Department of
Revenue and the school district. The
school district paid $125,000 to mail
notices of the omission to all proper-
ty owners throughout the county.
Brown was reacting to com-
ments from the only citizen who
showed up to comment at the
public hearing: Millicent Puleo, a
former school board candidate
who accused the board of waste-
fulness after she received three
copies of the letter.
"This, to me, implies a waste" of
money, time and paper, Puleo
said, holding up all three copies.
"If anybody got three letters,"
Brown said, "it was because they
are lucky enough to own three
properties."


A year has passed
since Claude left us; four
seasons without him
hearing the crack of a bat,
without him casting a
line. The roar of the crowd
diminished by one.
A lover of nature, he
took note of the forma-
tion of clouds before a
storm, the changing
seasons, the first spring
peepers, the last leaf to
fall.
Claude loved the
Venice community, his
Gondolier Sun co-work-
ers, Venice sports, the
Venice Fishing Pier and
his dachshunds.
How the angels must
have smiled on the day
they welcomed his easy
way, boyish smile and
young heart.
And while his
absence is and always
will be deeply felt, we
have been able to find


solace in the support
and love of his many
friends and readers.
Now, do as Claude
would do: Callyour mom,
pet your pets, kiss the
wife, slip off the sneakers,
grab a cold Negra Modelo,
tune the radio to the
game, cast a line and
remember, "Life is the
best song ever sung."

We love you, Claude.

ally abusing students, in
1981, 1990 and 1991.
Although the time in
which such charges
usually should have
been brought had long
expired, the state attor-
ney successfully prose-
cuted him under a law
that extends the time
period in the case of a
public officer or employ-
ee until two years after he
leaves employment.
The Second District
Court of Appeal upheld
the convictions.
LaMorte was sen-
tenced to 12-year prison
terms on two of the
charges and a nine-year
term on the third. With a
12-year sentence and the
nine-year sentence run-
ning consecutively, the
total sentence was 21
years the maximum.
Then, in a handwrit-
ten motion mailed from
Taylor Correctional Insti-
tution in Perry, Fla., earli-
er this year, LaMorte
asserted that the wrong
sentencing guidelines
were used at his trial. It
resulted in the awarding
of victim injury points
that he said wrongly
extended his prison sen-
tence.
He said he learned
from another inmate
that the 1983 sentencing
guidelines were declared
unconstitutional by the
Florida Supreme Court
in the 1990s.
Using a recalculated
score sheet, Circuit Judge
Andrew Owens handed
down an 11 1/2 year sen-
tence for LaMorte on
Wednesday still the
maximum.
He will get credit for
time served and could
see his sentence reduced
further for "gain" time, an
incentive for inmates to
behave well in custody.
At press time the
Department of Correc-
tions Web site did not
have a new release date
for LaMorte.

OUR VIEW



Don't give flu a helping hand


Make no mistake, the H1N1 flu
is not only here but is consid-
ered "widespread" in the
region. It is increasing and likely to
increase even more in the weeks and
months ahead.
There is no reason to panic, but
every reason to familiarize yourself
with procedures that can minimize
the effects of the flu on your family
members, neighbors, co-workers and
the wider community.
That was the message last week
from the Sarasota County Health De-
partment, which is now holding end-
of-the-week press conferences for
updates on the flu outbreak.
Health department officials are no
longer bothering to make a distinc-
tion between "swine" flu and other
strains of flu. They are no longer test-
ing. Some 97 percent of the flu here


now is the H1N1 strain, they said.
And it is "widespread."
Scott Pritchard, epidemiologist for
the Sarasota County Health Depart-
ment, said county emergency rooms
in recent weeks have seen a spike in
activity that is two to three times
greater than what is typically seen at
the peak of the annual flu season.
Three deaths have been confirmed so
far this year in Sarasota.
The Sarasota school system has
seen a slight increase in absences, but
nothing that would trigger alarm.
Because of the potential danger,
health officials are advising people in
higher risk categories pregnant
women and children and adults with
special conditions like asthma and
diabetes to call their family doctors
if they have flu-like symptoms: fever,
sneezing, sore throat and headache.


Treatment with antiviral drugs such
as Tamiflu can minimize the effects,
and there still are plenty of supplies,
officials said.
For most, health officials say peo-
ple with flu symptoms should just
stay home from work or school.
Parents of children who feel ill while
at school will be evaluated and par-
ents will be contacted, if necessary.
Students with flu symptoms are being
told to stay home for at least 24 hours
after a fever has gone down without
fever-reducing drugs. That's also the
rule of thumb for adults anxious to
return to work.
Other general recommendations that
can help slow the spread of the virus:
Use a hand sanitizer regularly.
Wash your hands often with soap and
water, especially after you cough.
Germs are spread by contact with


common items telephones and
door knobs.
Try to avoid touching your eyes,
nose or mouth.
Cover your mouth when you
sneeze. The best method, health offi-
cials say, is to cough into your sleeve
near the inside of your elbow.
Above all, avoid contact with
other people who are ill. If you have
the flu, keep yourself in quarantine.
Tests of the swine flu vaccine have
shown great promise, and health
department officials hope to have the
vaccine available locally by mid-
October. Before that becomes avail-
able, it's especially important to limit
the spread of the virus as much as
possible.
Follow the advice of health care
professionals and we all may help
lessen the impact.

MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


"Utopia," written in Latin by
St. (Sir) Thomas More in 1516,
describes a fictional island in
the Atlantic Ocean possessing
a seemingly perfect socio-po-
litical-legal system. This book
and its author have been both
adored and vilified by scholars
throughout the ages. To my
very unscholarly mind, it is an
enigma wrapped in a puzzle.
My reason for writing about
it is that recently the words
"communism," "socialism,"
and "Marxism" are being toss-
ed about as frequently as "Re-
publican" and "Democrat"
and "Independent." During
the Renaissance period, com-
munism was thought of as an
ideal system. In fact, it has
often been noted that Chris-
tianity was founded on the
idea of "communal" living
where everything is shared
equally.
Let's jump to the present,
when we live in a republic
called the United States of
America. We are considered a
capitalistic nation. The prem-
ise of capitalism is that no one
should be exploited by greed,
but workers should be reward-
ed for productivity. People are
allowed to take from the social
wealth only to the extent of
their contribution to the pro-
duction of wealth.
Karl Marx said that "religion
is the opiate of the people."
That was when "communist"
really became a dirty word.
Practicing religion was thought
to take away from the power of a
socialistic social system.
Lenin, during his reign, had
priests arrested and killed.
Stalin continued to make com-
munism the supreme dogma
of the people. In the late 19th
century, socialism and com-
munism were often inter-
changeable.
So, even though commu-
nism was founded on creating
a perfect existence, it has dete-


. or less

riorated into the Robin Hood
philosophy of robbing the rich
to give to the poor. Not good.
I'm so sorry to disagree with
St. Thomas More, but I just
think that "Utopia" is a fairy
tale. Let's face it, folks, this
world is not paradise.
We are a bunch of human
beings scrambling to preserve
our very existence. It's difficult,
though, when we are being
invaded by people who profess
that communism, socialism
and Marxism are the humane
ways to exist. Maybe they were
meant to be, but that's not the
way they've turned out.
In this all-too-real world, I'll
settle for capitalism where we
all have an equal chance to live
the good life, so to speak. We
are not prevented from work-
ing our little tails off to gain the
material goods we so desire.
We are having problems
though with suspicious cabals
going on behind our innocent
little backs in which compa-
nies like General Motors (the
hallmark of success in the
United States forever) have
been reduced to making deals
with the government to
remain in business. I'd like to
know just whose pockets have
been lined and just where the
bucks are really going. I have
my ideas, but I'm not in the
mood to be sued just now.
It's interesting and hopeful
that Ford Motor Company, the
child of the greatest entrepre-
neur of all time, Henry Ford, is
hanging in there on its own.
Otherwise, old Henry would
be rolling over about now.
Instead, he's probably laugh-
ing at his lifelong competitors
who have caved into the idea
that the good old USA should
be more cultured, nonproduc-
tive and poor, say like most
European nations.
By the way, Thomas More
was an Englishman, a purport-
edly brilliant man with a fabu-
lous sense of humor, and a
Catholic. He went to work for
Henry VIII. They disagreed
over Henry's desire to take over
the pope's job and Thomas
More was beheaded in 1535
and subsequently canonized
by Pope Pius XI in 1935.
How's that for Utopia?

resident and has been a fre-
quent contributor to other

ular column for this page.

DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION FOR OUR INTERVIEWS WITH THE CANDIDATES FOR VENICE
CITY COUNCIL? CALL US AT 207-1111.


I pay; so should they

Unfair. I definitely feel that current and former city council
members should pay toward their insurance benefits. I'm retired
after having worked for the city for more than 12 years, full-time,
not just a few hours a week like council members do. I have to
pay $90 a month to the city for my insurance benefits. The hours
I put in compared to the hours they put in and I have to pay
and they don't doesn't seem at all fair to me. It also irritates me
that council has disobeyed the Sunshine laws when they know
better and may cost the taxpayers many thousands, if not mil-
lions, of dollars in attorneys' fees before that is resolved. I under-
stand some city employees have been let go and some vacant
positions not filled, due to a lack of funds in the city budget. So I
ask you, the taxpayer, is it fair to pay council's insurance? They
disobey the laws and expect us to pay? I ask all who agree with
me to let city officials know your thoughts and insist on a meet-
ing at which you can express them. I'll bet there won't be enough
room to seat them all.


Keep it up. City residents
are paying city taxes to keep
the city of Venice beautiful,
and it's amazing how great
things look during all the diffi-
culties in these economic
times. You can't blame the cur-
rent economic times on the
council. Difficult economic
times are being experienced
nationwide. The majority of
the taxpayers still support the
current council. Also, thank
the current city council for
making a stand on many diffi-
cult issues. For instance air-
port development, airport
noise, especially airport pollu-
tion with toxic fumes emitting
from the jet fuel. They're also
dealing with the leases of the
golf course, the pier restaurant
and jet hangars. They're now
trying to control growth and
eliminate tall buildings along
with the uncontrolled growth.
Again, taxpayers are paying
extra money to keep things the
way they are. We'd like everyone
to continue the good work, and
to know that those who really
care about Venice support you.
We don't need to revert to the
good old days of building home-
ly looking towers on the island
and elsewhere. John Nolen
would be proud of those who
take a stand.
Pipe lines. As usual, I'm
flabbergasted to read that the
airport has all sorts of things like
boats and pipes and who knows
what, all in the hangars. It has


Let 'em


Have It


signs that are not properly
marked, that are faded and
should be fixed up etc., etc., etc.
We have a manager and eight
security people. How people
could drive through the gates
and put their boats in a hangar
- who knows, they certainly
passed the security guard. We
have a $91,000-a-year manager
who, I guess, never inspects the
hangars, never walks around the
airfield, never looks to see if the
signs are in good order. No won-
der we have such a problem
with the FAA. I certainly hope
that its 30-day deadline is met,
and that the staff who takes care
of the grounds, the signs and the
security and so forth at the air-
port pull their socks up and do


what they are paid for.
Put out. I've read all the
articles about Ed Martin, Sue
Lang and all, and I think we
can sum this up pretty quick.
Did you read Ed Martin's col-
umn? Martin is the best mayor
that Venice ever had ha! If
you don't believe it, just ask
him. Or don't ask him, and he
will tell you anyway. You can
throw Sue Lang right in with
that. They should be voted out.
I'm not a lawyer, I don't know
all the political things, but they
should be put out of there. Not
in a rude way, but just get them
out of there and get some peo-
ple in there that know what to
do.
Card tricks. Well, old Vern
did it again. He called a town
meeting attended by his
wealthy clan, spewing Repub-
lican propaganda. What isVern
for other than the Republican
agenda and his own agen-
da, of course. Here is how it
breaks down: He supports the
credit-card controls because
they were screwing up his auto
sales business by eliminating
credit-card usage at his auto
dealerships. Of course, he sup-
ports the clunker giveaway
because he's making a bunch
off of that program. Lastly, he's
for Vern, Vern, Vern. He never
disputes the obvious bull.
Not right. I think it's pretty
rotten that the city of Venice
would let my neighbor go after
working for them for 31 years,
right before his retirement.
Then the city turns around and
gives away more than $100,000
to charity. That's just wrong. The
city should clean out what it's
got at home some of those
employees who have DUIs and
stuff. It's just not a right thing to
do for the city.
Double up. I've just been
watching the funeral of a
police officer from Tampa who
was gunned down. This is the
reason, in my opinion, that we
need two patrol officers in a
car, not just one. One may be
able to handle two people, but
more than two is a big prob-
lem. In this case it was only
one. So, even though the cost is
high, we still need two police
officers in a cruising car.





WEEKEND EDITION SEPT. 19, 2009


Understanding the Venice airport issues


EDITOR'S NOTE: Part two
of this guest column will
run in the Sept. 23 edition.

Should our airport be
a "C-II" or "B-II." Confus-
ed? So was I.
As a result, I took
some time to investigate
so I could at least under-
stand what all the fuss
and discussion is really
about. Here it is for all
our benefits so that we
can all objectively decide
what we really want for
our hometown of Venice.
This issue is on the
table at this time, and the
candidates for office will
be talking about this and
will fit either pro or con
into a C-II or B-II airport
category, so you must
know what it is all about
and make sure you select
according to your wishes.
Our Venice airport by
Federal Aviation Adminis-
tration nomenclature is a
general aviation airport,
not a commercial one,
and that thought is a start-
ing thought for this dis-
cussion.
I must present some
background basics if you
are to understand airport
design, nomenclature and
the issues. So let us begin.
One important part of
airport design is the
choice of the "design air-
craft." FAA defines it as
the "most demanding
airplane or family of air-
planes that make regular
use of the airport." Reg-
ular use is defined as a
minimum of 500 "opera-
tions" takeoffs and
landings per year.
Airports that want to


grow forecast more than
500 operations so as to
justify their future expan-
sion.
Airports that want to
maintain their presently
usable airport space
(physical footprint and
safety zones) or cannot
feasibly expand due to
space limitations can
explain such facts to FAA
and in almost every case
are approved to remain
basically as is.
This touches the heart
of the issue we are ex-
ploring.
Either we stay within
our current use bound-
aries or we push out and
effect currently used and
functional facilities sur-
rounding the airport. All
this has nothing to do
with "banning" certain
planes, as you will see.
Let's get to defining B-
II and C-II. This designa-
tion is also a design stan-
dard.
The letter "A," "B," "C"'
or "D" is derived from the
"approach speed": '"A"' is
slow, "B" is faster, "C"
more so, etc. The faster
the speed, the more run-
way length is needed.
The letter thus relates to
runway length.
Pilots will tell you they
never know the designa-
tion of an airport. This
label goes on the airport
master plan, not in the
pilot's handbook.
The second factor, the
number, is related to air-
craft wingspan and shows
up in standards for run-
way and taxiway width.
So whatever our des-
ignation, it does not deny
present and future use by
any current users ofVNC.
Small-aircraft pilots,
whom we mostly service,
determine usage needs
by whether there is
enough runway and
what the present weather
conditions are. Jets, all
classified as "B" and larg-
er, have on-board com-
puters to calculate run-
way needs based on load,
etc. for the specific air-
craft. So, two of our cur-


rent-use aircraft the
Citation X, a C-II, and the
Learjet 60, a D-I can
continue to use the air-
port.
Now, without trying to
lose the issue in the de-
tails, there are other im-
portant design factors
you must understand as
they will affect the space
alongside and beyond
the actual paved runway.
They are:
The Runway Safety
Area runs a path parallel
to the runway and finish-
es beyond its paved end.
It is the first line of de-
fense for the pilot against
a takeoff overshoot or
coming up short on
landing. This area must
be clear of all objects and
graded so that a plane
can traverse it if need be.
The Runway Protec-
tion Zone begins 200 feet
from the runway end and
fans out and from the
runway well into areas
toward Harbor Drive and
the Intracoastal Water-
way. Its primary purpose
is to protect people and
buildings on the ground.
The Object-Free Area
also runs parallel to the
runway, farther out in
width from the runway's
centerline and extends
way out to the end of the
Runway Protection Zone.
It must be clear of objects
except those necessary
for aircraft navigation.
So, if the issue is not
which planes can land,
then what harm is it to be
a "C" classification?
What I will show you
in Part II is that being a
"C" pushes our airport
safety boundaries even
farther into regularly
used local areas, shuts
down some common-
use areas, and opens the
door for even more am-
bition to grow the air-
port.
Life as we know it
today on the southern tip
of the island of Venice
would never be the same.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Center's clients

give back generously

Editor:
Your Sept. 16 Our Town featured an article about
the Women's Resource Center of Sarasota County and
the positive impact our Challenge program has had
on Liz Mutrie's life.
As noted, Challenge is our signature program, and
as we celebrate our 30th anniversary this year we
remember the thousands of women and their fami-
lies who have benefited from their participation.
I was interviewed for the article and would like to
clarify one statement: "it's unusual for someone to
graduate from Challenge and then give back to the
center." I never meant to imply that our Challenge
graduates do not remain grateful for the experience
but rather that Liz's particular contribution in design-
ing centerpieces for our Fall Gathering to showcase
her talents is unusual.
Challenge graduates bountifully contribute their
time, talents and money to support our mission of
"Helping women reach their full economic and emo-
tional potential through education, support, referrals
and networking." We treasure all our volunteers.

Makes sense,
saves cents
Editor:
As a regular citizen, I
never understood why
each year I received one
notice for my home's ad
valorem taxes in one en-
velope and on another
day a notice for my non-
ad valorem assessments
in a second envelope.
Realizing the potential
savings and convenience
to the taxpayers to be
derived from mailing the
two notices in one enve-
lope, upon assuming the
office of property ap-
praiser I asked my staff to
help me correct this
problem. Working with
the tax collector's office,
this year for the first time
we were able to deliver


the two notices in one
envelope at a significant
saving.
Beginning next year
the property appraiser's
office will be solely re-
sponsible for mailing one
form including the ad
valorem taxes and the
non-ad valorem assess-
ments. Although I do not


SUN NEWSPAPERS 7A

know why this was not
done previously, I can
assure you that as long as
I am property appraiser I
will continue to work to
deliver the best possible
service to the taxpayers.

Editor:
With everyone talking
about Obama's health
care bill, I think it's about
time we investigate
what's in the bill. Talk is
cheap. What does the bill
say?
My suggestion is that
we tear out the 1,000
pages in the bill. Send
each page around the
country to different
towns. Then let's have
town hall meetings
where the pages were
sent. Via TV, I'll watch
and listen to what the
people in, for example,
Nashville, have to say
about what's in the page
they received.
Now that's American.

HOURS from Page 1A


SUN PHOTO BY CHRISTINE HAWES
Tami Treadway has been a member of the Sarasota K-9 Search & Rescue team for 12
years, volunteering up to 20 hours a week to train rescue dogs, like Sekou, that also live


with her.

K-9 from Page 1 A


all of the similarities."
Treadway's sensitivity, along with her
profound love of dogs, is what persuad-
ed K-9 team co-founder Pat Abrams to
recruit Treadway to join the search-
and-rescue operation. Abrams remem-
bers being impressed with Treadway's
years of service as a longtime worker
and eventually a supervisor for
Sarasota County's Animal Services shel-
ter.
Abrams was also impressed with
Treadway's previous experience as a
veterinary technician and her creden-
tials as a dog obedience trainer and
confirmation handler. After watching
Treadway in action during Disaster
Animal Rescue Training during torna-
does and wildfires in the late 1990s,
Abrams realized just how much of an
asset Treadway would be to the search-
and-rescue operation.
"She was the type of person that just
gravitated to you," said Abrams, who
founded the all-volunteer team with
her husband, Joseph, in 1994. "She was
very knowledgeable, very caring."

Play drive
Treadway joined the team in 1997
with Boo, a dog from the shelter who
had been severely abused by its owner.
Since then she's rescued several other
dogs from the shelter and trained them
to be search-and-rescue dogs, noticing
an intensity in their "play drive" that
would have made them too much of a
handful for the average family to adopt.
Sekou, the dog that steered
Treadway to Lee's crude grave, became
a search-and-rescue dog in a more con-
ventional way. Treadway's husband
chose Sekou out of a litter of six after
carefully observing his behavior.
"Sekou stuck with him," she
explained. "He played with him while
his brothers and sisters were playing
with each other. That's what you want.
You want a dog that is people-oriented.
You don't want one that would choose
to be with the other dogs, or just sit in
the corner."
Like all search-and-rescue dogs,
Sekou first went through obedience
and socialization training, and then
advanced into search training. Unlike


most of the other 25 dogs on the team,
Sekou also learned to track human
remains. He's been an active member
of the team for six years and is now con-
sidered "elderly" in medical terms,
searching more slowly and tiring more
quickly.

Faith
The day Sekou clued in to where
Lee's body was buried, he had been
searching, in rotation with eight other
canines, for about eight hours and was
nearing the end of the day. Off Toledo
Blade Boulevard, he began focusing on
a general area near Plantation
Boulevard, tugging at his leash.
Treadway, recognizing the importance
of protecting any evidence that might
exist, pulled Sekou back before he fol-
lowed his usual routine of sitting down
and making eye contact with Treadway.
Though one officer initially brushed
off Treadway's call for a closer look, she
persisted and went through the search-
and-rescue team's liaison to ensure the
area was checked thoroughly. Abrams
credits Treadway's "expertise, knowl-
edge and training" for knowing that
Sekou's clues should be followed. "She
stuck to her guns, and she had faith in
her dog's alerts."
Treadway said that discovering the
deceased happens more often than she
expected when she joined the team.
"Our team has only had two live
finds" over 14 years and 210 missions,
she said. Other high-profile cases the
team has been part of include the
search for murdered children Jessica
Lunsford and Carlie Bruscia.
While the team's work can be
depressing, Treadway said the close-
knit family support of the K-9 Search &
Rescue unit helps to make it through.
Team members socialize with each
other and form strong friendship
bonds, built around the concepts of
"trust, care, and commitment."
And for Treadway, the greatest
reward beyond providing closure to
families is saving dogs.
"For me, the greatest motivation is
getting dogs from shelters that wouldn't
fit in with a normal family. I really like
watching a dog that had no discipline,
no training and sometimes no hope go
from that to giving back."


est one is open."
All county libraries will now open at
10 a.m. daily.

Online alternative
At the Elsie Quirk Library in Engle-
wood, the change in hours is viewed
positively.
"It's going to be wonderful for our
patrons," said Senior Librarian Tony
Hopper. "Even though we're not open-
ing until 10 (a.m.), we are increasing
another night, so we will be open not
only Monday night, but Wednesday
evening. We're also going to be open
longer hours on Saturday."
Patrons will receive the most benefit,
she said.
"It will be really good for people who
work and haven't been able to come to
the library in the past," Hopper said.
She said the new hours will be more
consistent, since all county libraries
will open at the same time every morn-
ing.
The plan for consistency in hours
results from an analysis by library staff
that considered patron counts, circula-
tion, computer use, program atten-
dance, patterns of meeting-room use
and library location.
Carolann Palm-Abramoff, manager
at the North Port Library, said North
Porters also will benefit from the
changing hours.


WEEKEND EDITION SEPT. 19, 2009

"Of all the libraries, I think we have
better hours than we had before," she
said. "On Friday and Saturday, we used
to close at 3:30 (p.m.). Now we're open
until 5 (p.m.)."
The North Port Library also will be
open until 8 p.m. Wednesday instead of
Thursday. The change is based on a
survey given to library patrons, who
said they would prefer the library
remain open later on Wednesday.
"That's the one night that everyone
wanted to come, or could come," Palm-
Abramoff said. "Some of the other
libraries have actually lost hours. We
didn't do that, we just switched them
around."
She said that groups who typically
used the library's meeting rooms on
Thursday nights have "easily" agreed to
switch their meetings to Wednesdays.
Palm-Abramoff also said that staff in
North Port has been talking to patrons
about the change for about three weeks
now.
"Nobody has any problems with it,
so so far, so good," she said.
The Sarasota County library system
Web site, www.sclibs.net, continues to
offer services 24 hours a day, seven days
a week, with patrons able to reserve
materials for pickup, read e-books,
access databases or contact a librarian
for additional assistance.

to council, Council Mem-
ber Kit McKeon suggest-
ed an RFQ might be pre-
mature until the master
plan is in place, and
Mayor Ed Martin said the
city has money for a for-
mal overview study of the
area. But it wasn't what
Dumas and Young want-
ed to hear.
"I don't think anything
was taken to heart," Young
said. "We're an advisory
board to council. They
ought to be listening to
what we're saying.
"Not a single person
even made a suggestion.
They didn't even take it as
a starting point."
Reactions
Martin, who is coun-
cil's liaison to the EDTF,
tried to smooth the ruf-
fled feathers.
"I don't think you were
dismissed," he said. 'As it
turns out, the proposal
that you made was very
specific and came out of
the blue sky, so to speak.
"The council expects
you to give them advice.
You may have done more
than council suggested."
Even so, he said, "Frank-
ly, I was a little surprised
nobody said, 'Hey, this is a
good idea, let's do it."
Martin faulted the
board for not asking him
to keep council posted on
its work and himself for
not taking the initiative to
do that. He also urged the
members to communi-
cate directly with the
members of council,
which he said is permissi-
ble under the Sunshine
Law except with him, as
the EDTF's liaison.
"We probably didn't
prepare the council well
enough," he said. "I can't
do that but you can."
Dumas said she would
meet with the other
members of council to
try better to articulate the
board's view that the
issue is "how to use the
airport in a way that
reflects the community."
Apart of that, said EDTF
member Joan McGill,
might be to make sure the
emphasis is on jobs, not
development, a term that
causes a knee-jerk negative
reaction in some people.
"We need business.
We need jobs," she said.
"We need that tax base."

Proper atonement and
the way in which one
conducts oneself during
the holidays can lead to
changes in the lists of
names before they are
sealed. White refers to
this as "at one ment." Ret-
rospection is an impor-
tant aspect of the ritual.
Work is not permitted
today or on Yom Kippur,
and most Jews will spend
today and the final day in
temple until sundown.
During this 10-day peri-
od, the shofar, or ram's
horn will be blown a total
of 100 notes.
Yom Kippur is a sol-
emn day. Fasting begins
at sundown the previous
evening and continues
until sundown on Yom
Kippur when it is tradi-
tional to have large "fast


break" parties.

"We will wait to bor-
row the COPS money
until we are ready to start
construction because
there is a two-year spend
down time," said Al
Weidner, deputy chief fi-
nancial officer at Sara-
sota County School Dis-
trict. "The construction
manager (Mills) has to
get approval from the
Florida Department of


Education's office of fa-
cilities, and that can take
some time."
The cost of the Venice
rebuild is estimated at
$91 million, according to
Weidner.
"That includes every-
thing the buildings,
furniture and equip-
ment," he said. "We will
only borrow $85 million."
There will be a 15-year


or a 20-year payback
period for the COPS, and
if anything goes wrong
the bond holders who
support the COPS would
get the building. Because
of that, the COPS will
only go for the actual
construction and will not
include furniture and
interior materials. Those
things will be paid for by
local funds, according to


Weidner.
Candy Millington, VHS
principal, said she is
pleased the architect is
keepingwith the priority of
using the Nolen concept.
"The school will look
like part of the original
plan for the city, even
though where the school
is now was supposed to
be a golf course," Mill-
ington said. "The archi-

Tornadoes a breeze for Indians


Venice dominates

in 43-7 victory

against Booker


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

The defense shortened the
field and the offense took care
of the rest.
Venice's defense forced five
turnovers while the offense
amassed 338 yards including
232 on the ground as the
Indians hammered Booker,
43-7, Friday at Powell-Davis
Stadium.
It was Venice's largest-ever
margin of victory over the
Tornadoes as the next closest
was a 33-point win in 2002.
Venice's defense had four
fumble recoveries and an
interception.
"We were just at a high
intensity," said Venice defen-
sive end Clay Burton. "It really
helps when you get turnovers
early and put our offense on
the field. If the offense scores,
it pumps the defense up."
"I think we definitely got
better tonight," said Venice
coach John Peacock. "I was
waiting for our running game
to get going and when our run-
ning game gets going it opens
up everything.... I was happy
with our offensive line play."
Venice (2-1) took advantage
of a Booker turnover in the first
quarter as the Booker quarter-
back Jamaine Leverett fum-
bled at his 39-yard line and
Venice linebacker Mike
Herndon recovered the ball.
The Indians culminated the
eight-play drive on a 4-yard
run around the right end by
Trey Burton with 5:13 left in
the first quarter.
Venice's defense set up
more points in the first quarter
as Booker's attempt at a fake
punt was snuffed out by Clay
Burton causing the Tornadoes
to come a yard short.
The drive stalled at the
Booker 13-yard line but Venice
went ahead 10-0 as junior Joey
Carlin split the uprights for a
30-yard field goal with 2:34 left

in the first quarter.
The Indians' defense con-
tinue to shine gave their
offense another short field to
work with. A fourth-and-six
was stopped by the Indians
giving Venice possession 48-
yard line.
Venice drove 45 yards on
seven plays and Burton scored
on a 2-yard run with 8:39 left in
the second quarter. Key play in
the drive was a 22-yard screen
pass from Burton to Boyle
down the left sideline.
Booker scored its only TD
with 6:07 left in the second
quarter on a 40-yard touch-
down pass from Leveretto to
Ricky Jones Jr. to pull Booker
within 16-7.
Venice's final touchdown of
the first half was set up by a
David Williams interception at
the Indians' 42-yard line.
Burton connected with
Boyle, who got behind the
defense down the left sideline
for a 44-yard reception at the
Booker 9-yard line. Three con-
secutive runs later, Burton
scored his third TD of the first


half on a 2-yard run with 1:31
left in the quarter for a 22-7
lead.
Booker was stopped at the
8-yard line before halftime as
freshman Quaheem Kapinski
broke up two passes in the end
zone then Leverett was sacked
by defensive end Brandon
Wilkinson after a bad snap for
a 17-yard loss. A 42-yard field
goal was short and left as time
expired in the first half.
In the second half, Venice's
defense recovered three fum-
bles and limited to 75 yards.
"It was really a team effort
with the whole defensive line,"
said Clay Burton. "I was really
trying to do my job and go as
hard as I can."
The first fumble recovery
resulted in a touchdown.
Defensive tackle Dino Fanti
knocked the ball out the quar-
terback's hands and rambled
55 yards for aTD with 10:28 left
in the quarter.
Venice took a 36-7 lead just
four plays into its next posses-
sion as Boyle, who was filling
in for the injured Josh Grant,


broke off tackle and ran 65
yards untouched for the
touchdown. Boyle finished
with 73 yards rushing and 80
yards receiving on five catches.
"The hole was there and I
hit it," said Boyle, who was
making his first start at run-
ning back since his freshman
year. "I was real excited."
Venice got a fumble recov-
ery from Omari Phillips late in
the third quarter.
The Indians went in front
43-7 on a 42-yard drive as
Jamal Bouhamid scored on a
2-yard run to start a running
clock with 11:30 left in the
fourth quarter.
Venice's final fumble recov-
ery was by Joey Gaither with 10
minutes left.

Jones, Garofalo power Venice

BY PERRY D. PENTZ r
SPORTS EDITOR I I


On his second hole,
Venice's Tyler Jones
chipped in a 20-foot
putt for a birdie.
It springboarded the
senior to his season-
best score of 36 and lift-
ed the Indians to a one-
stroke win over Sara-
sota, 156-157, Thursday
at Venice Golf and
Country Club. The Indi-
ans also defeated River-
view and Cardinal Moon-
ey, which shot a 163 and
165, respectively.
"He took a lesson I
know last weekend
which I think is impor-
tant," Venice coach Marty
Tarala said. "He is a good
player. He just needed to
get everything together
which he just happened
to do now. From now on,
I would expect he would
be right there."
Teammate Tim Gar-
ofalo, a senior, tied with
Jones for low medalist
honors.
Garofalo, who was 2-
over par after four holes
with bogeys on the first
and fourth holes came
back with birdies on the
sixth and ninth holes.
He just missed putts for
birdies on the seventh
and eighth holes.
"Tim is probably one
of the more focused
people on our team
because he is putting the
effort forward," Tarala
said.
It was the second
straight week that the
Indians had to wait
until the final golfer to
pull out a victory. They
did the same thing last
week against Lakewood
Ranch.
The Indians' total is 11
shots from their season
low, which they set on

As the season opens up, expecta-
tions are high for the Venice High boys
and girls cross country teams.
The two teams have been working
hard with conditioning as the season
begins on Saturday as Venice plays host
to 25 teams from five different counties
for the annual Venice Invitational cross
country meet.
The 3.1-mile course will cover Oscar
Scherer State Park in Osprey.
The Lady Indians, who have 30 girls
on the roster, return 17 from last year,
while the boys have 14, including 11
returners.
Experience is on their side as the
Lady Indians have four seniors -
Rosa Canas, Lucy Horton, Cynthia
Melendez-Flynn and Maggie Gokey.
Canas is a four-year runner while
Horton and Melendez-Flynn have been
on the team three years. Gokey is in her
second year.
The Indians have only one senior,
Tony Miller, a three-year varsity runner,
but they are loaded with juniors,
including Dillon Boyd, Anthony
Hinsman and Tyler Palson, and sopho-
more David Enander.
The senior girls got to experience a
running camp over the summer at
Berry College in Rome, Ga.
"Yes I have very high expectations
because we have four seniors," Clark
said. "I asked them, what are you will-
ing to settle for? Are you willing to settle
for less than your best or are you willing


to get ready to rock and
roll? Instead of thinking,
'so and so is a good team,'
we are 'no, we are the
good team. Make them
beat you.'"
"This is the best team
I've had," Venice boys
coach Jason Potter said.
"They are real good guys

have a lot of juniors coming into their

Sophomore Kelly White, a standout
on the track team, also returns to bol-
ster the senior-laden lineup.
Canas ran in the preseason run on
Siesta Key last week and finished ninth.
"She looked good," Clark said. "She
was not happy with last season and is
coming back with a vengeance."
A few top newcomers include fresh-
man Miranda Deto, junior Julia Cessna
and freshman Elizabeth Knight.
"Conditioning has been fantastic
with full participation," Clark said.
"They are strong. I am super excited
about the season."
The boys added some strength with
junior Michael Marsh, who transferred
from Sarasota Christian, and junior Jon
Kier.
"I'm excited about this year but real
excited about next year," Potter said.

Susan Danis, executive director of the Sarasota Opera, is a chronic overachiever.
S-""She does it all equally well," former opera board chair Ed Bavaria said. "She is an indefatigable
.worker."
The work ethic seems to have grown with Danis, who was raised in Waterbury, Conn., where she
S '. first crossed paths with Maestro Victor DeRenzi, the opera's artistic director since
1983. That was just before just before the opera moved into its permanent home.
S. When Danis was a third-grader, her class attended "Carmen." Familiar
with the music from her ballet classes, she was an instant fan. Years later, after
joining the Sarasota Opera, she learned that DeRenzi had been at the same
.. performance at the Bushnell Auditorium in Hartford, Conn. He was the back-
-..:stage director.

. Destiny
-..- .." "I"S2 "He was a young, young professional," Danis said. "It was a little bit of des-
--" tiny then. I never thought of a career in opera."
'-. Her interest in those days was performing. She continued ballet and, in high
"" : "' "" :' hera.'chool, became involved in theater, but at Indiana University she studied physical
lierapy
S-; "I always liked working with disabled people," she said.
S.- ,In college, she learned she could combine her love of theater with her interest in
Sl "i- .rapy. She switched her major to drama therapy.
".- Degree in hand, she spent 10 years in NewYork City, working with people with
I elopmental disabilities. She had completed college in three and a half years and
Si'; \\a manager at 21, working for AVery Special Place Inc. on Staten Island. She
nm"e ' d next to the Young Adult Institute in New York City, working closely with its
Evening Adjustment Program.
"A big challenge for these people is how they use their leisure time," Danis said.
6 She became the coordinator of a program, worked to open state services for adoles-
i 'cents, helped to write and produce two TV shows, arranged special events and helped
H with lobbying efforts in Washington, D.C.
-, o-. ':.After 10 years she planned to take a year off to live in Paris.
"Overachiever that I am, I found a 13-month intensive program in Paris and got my
MBA."
f The University of Hartford-run program had 25 percent of its students from America,
S. ~ 25 percent from France and the rest from all over the world.
SIt was the 1980s. When she returned to NewYork, there were no jobs. She headed to
San Francisco and freelanced in the dot-com industry, working for several different com-
panies, and then helped two friends who were lawyers and needed help in building
boards for some nonprofit groups in the arts.
S "I enjoyed that more than my freelance work," she said.
S '- Involved with the French New Wave film movement, she also fell in love, and for the
...- only time in her life, followed her heart to upstate NewYork where the man lived.
'. Again she was in a place with no jobs.
SAgain she freelanced.
.. "" Then, the Lake George Opera Festival needed a management director.
"It was in really bad shape financially," Danis said. "It had a budget of $450,000 and
;"-.' was $400,000 in debt. I have never been afraid of debt, but they had no cash."
The overachiever had found the perfect challenge. Within eight years, the company was
out of debt and had the beginnings of an endowment, and Danis had earned a reputation
in the opera industry as a stick-with-it person and turnaround expert.
i Having accomplished what she set out to do, Danis felt it was time to look around.

George Opera, told her that Deanne Allyn would Below, Sarasota

Ten years and counting
Kicking into overachiever overdrive, Danis has been with
the opera during its greatest period of growth, most recently
overseeing the $20 million renovation project that has made "
the Sarasota Opera House, according to Bavaria, "the envy of .-
the entire opera world in the United States." *
"No one has the intimate theater we have," he continued.
"It is just the right size. I really believe that you can't hear bet-
ter in this country than you can in Sarasota. Opera was never
intended to be performed in a big place." ?"'..
DeRenzi said virtually the same thing two years ago when
the construction was under way and he was celebrating his "
25th year with the opera. ..
"People are often surprised when they come to Sarasota L
from NewYork," he said. "Those people often become our t
biggest supporters because of the intimate space."

heimer, to Lawrence

ed from Venice High
School in 1979. She re-
ceived a Bachelor of Sci-
ence in nursing and
Master of Science in
nursing from the Univer-
sity of South Florida. She
practices as an adult reg-
istered nurse practitioner
with Life Path Hospice


and Palliative Care, in
Tampa, Fla. She is also an
adjunct instructor for
USF, College of Nursing.
Gastella graduated from
Hillsborough High School.
He attended USF and has
worked for Bisk Educa-
tion.
Gastella and Holzheim-
er are krewe directors for
the Gasparilla krewe,

They will be married

Country Club, Valrico,
with family and close
friends in attendance.


OPERA from Page 1B


Bavaria praises Danis and DeRenzi for what they
do for the opera, referring to their good relationship
as another plus for the opera.
"I have every confidence in Victor and Susan and
current board president Les Brualdi," he said. "I'll
take credit for getting him involved in the opera. He
knows how to be a chairman."
Continuing to be active in Opera America, Danis
served for the past three years as treasurer of that
organization.
"You don't end up on that board until you have
spent time in the industry," she said. "To learn the
best practices you have to talk to colleagues."
Danis is more than a number cruncher. Working
closely with designers, she also personally oversees
the creation of the stunning program book opera-
goers receive at each performance. Containing a syn-
opsis of each of the season's operas plus additional
information, that book could be a full-time endeavor
for most people.
That is but one example of something most exec-
utive directors do not do, but it saves money for the
company and seems to be something she also
enjoys. During the current economic downturn,
Danis is constantly seeking additional ways to cut
costs and to increase revenues, while also making
opera affordable for more people.
Bargain price
We're working hard to retain patrons by doing as
much as we can for them," Bavaria said. "Susan is
doing as much for patrons as possible."
For the coming season there will be $19 tickets.
Not only one of the area's theatrical bargains, that
price is also less than the charge to view a film of the
Metropolitan Opera at the Hollywood 20 in Sarasota.
"Victor and I work together on the artistic side,
but in essence, I'm in charge of everything. We work
hand-in-hand to keep the audiences happy."
These days, they are doing it with less money. A
few years ago, the opera was getting $744,000 a year
from the state. Danis said that has now dropped to
zero.
A drop in ticket sales also impacted last year's
budget, making for yet another challenge for Danis,
her staff and the board.
"The biggest challenge is financial," Bavaria said.
"we have to be sure to get the support that is neces-
sary."
Programs
In addition to producing five operas in the com-


of the skin, hair &
nails, as well as, a
dermatologic surgery.

ing season, the company has apprentice and youth
opera programs initiated by DeRenzi and, working
with its opera guilds and on its own, has an extensive
outreach program that stretches far beyond Sarasota
County.
While the renovations helped cut some costs, the
larger orchestra pit has led to the increased cost of
more musicians.
For DeRenzi, the plus to that is operas requiring
those extra musicians can now be performed in
Sarasota.
"We're creative people," Danis said, "used to oper-
ating on a shoestring. We had to make cuts we did
not want to make, but the philanthropy continues."
That too could change, but not if Danis has any-
thing to do with it.
"Our opera patrons are the ones who have chosen
to make Sarasota their home," Danis said. "I believe
art changes lives and that I get to do this ... I feel
blessed. I would give it my all no matter what, but
the effect the human voice and the music is having
on the audience there is no better feeling."
During the opera season, Danis is there watching
and greeting the audiences as well as the opera.
"She works relentlessly," Bavaria said.
"On top of all the long hours, when we lived on
the beach, she would come over and put on dinners
for people and we would charge some outlandish fee
for the opera's benefit."
Danis said that is one of her flaws that she tries
to be a perfectionist and often expects the same of
others.
"I don't think this opera would be anywhere what
it is without her," Bavaria said. "I don't think we
would have raised the money without her.
"She and the opera have made a determined
effort to get the city fathers and the county fathers to
understand how important the opera is to this com-
munity."

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


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.

Fall is prime time for exploring sunken ships in Traverse City


BY MICHAEL NORTON
TRAVERSE CITY
CONVENTION &
VISITORS BUREAU


There's a saying in north-
west Michigan's dune country.
The sand gives, and the sand
takes away.
Over the years, the golden
sands along the towering
Sleeping Bear Dunes have
buried farms, forests and set-
tlements. Just as unpredict-
ably, though, they can retreat
and bring to light what they
have buried as happened,
for instance, in the case of the
Three Brothers.
A 160-foot wooden steamer,
the Three Brothers ran
aground in 1911 on a sandbar
off the coast of South Manitou
Island and vanished without a
trace. For nearly a century,
boaters and beachcombers
fished and swam right over the
wreck without knowing it was
there, until the current shifted
the sand away in 1996 and
uncovered the vessel com-
pletely intact in a mere 12
feet of water. Since then it's
become a magnet for scuba
divers and snorkelers from all
around the country.
Although the waters around
Traverse City lack the coral
reefs and brightly colored fish
of the tropics, they're a popular
diving destination because
they're so rich in shipwrecks.
Most date back to the middle
of the 19th century, when the
region teemed with schooners,
tugs, fishing smacks and
steamships of all shapes and
sizes, but some are as recent as
the 1990s.
"The Great Lakes have more
shipwrecks than anyplace else
in the world, and they're in
much more pristine condition
than, say, the Caribbean, be-
cause they haven't been eaten
away by salt water," said Jack
Enger of Great Lakes Scuba,
one of several Traverse City
dive shops that serve the area's
growing number of underwa-


ter visitors.
Thanks to Lake Michigan's
cold, fresh water, these wrecks
are underwater "time cap-
sules" so well-preserved
that even small items like cut-
lery, machinery, ornaments,
and porcelain cups remain
unharmed and in their original
locations.
Underwater tourism is in-
creasingly popular in Traverse
City, particularly in late sum-
mer when Lake Michigan and
Grand Traverse Bay get warm
enough for deep exploration.
But the best diving is in au-
tumn, says Enger; the water's
still warm, but there's much
less recreational boat traffic
and the already phenomenal
clarity of the water is at its best.
Divers who don't want to lug
their own gear around can rent
from local dive shops, which
also run organized wreck-div-
ing groups and provide scuba
instruction for novices.
The best shipwreck-hunting
grounds in the region are in
the 282-square-mile Manitou
Passage Underwater Preserve,
just off the Sleeping Bear
Dunes between the Manitou
Islands and the Leelanau Pen-
insula. A protected "short cut"
for shipping since colonial
times, the passage contains
the wrecks of more than 130
ships only 16 of which have
been found.
One of the easiest to spot is
the Francisco Morazon, a
steel-hulled freighter that ran
aground on South Manitou in
a 1960 blizzard and can now be
seen half- submerged just a few
hundred yards offshore in only
15 feet of water. The 246-foot
ship can be easily explored
with fins, mask and snorkel.
Just a few hundred yards away
is the Walter L. Frost, a wooden
steamer that ran aground in
1905. Though it was somewhat
damaged when the Morazon
sank on top of it, the Frost is a
favorite with divers because
large sections of the hull with
machinery, boilers and related

artifacts are open to divers of
all skill levels.
More wrecks can be found


even closer to Traverse City
itself, in the sheltered waters of
the Grand Traverse Bay


Underwater Preserve. The A.J.
Rogers, a 138-foot wooden
schooner that sank in 1989, lies
just 4.5 miles off the tip of the
Old Mission Peninsula. Just a
few miles south of the point,
along the East Bay shore, is
another schooner, the 125-foot
Metropolis, whose keel is in
only 5 feet of water and a pop-
ular snorkeling destination.
(Much more of the ship is a few
yards to the east, over the edge
of a 100-foot underwater cliff.)
The Tramp, a 54-foot tug, lies
in 44 feet of water in West Bay,
near Power Island.
Nor are shipwrecks the only
interesting artifacts to be
found in these waters. Many
divers enjoy poking around the
area's extensive dock ruins,
where massive pilings were
driven into the sandy bottom
to create docks and wharves
for the schooners and steam-
ers that plied the region's water-
ways a century ago. Long aban-
doned, they attract large
schools of fish and contain
many artifacts, including anch-
ors and pieces of shipwrecks.
One of the strangest collec-
tions is the popular "junk pile"
near Old Mission, which in-
cludes a host of sunken arti-
facts from the 1950s, including
several well-preserved cars
and boats.
Confirmed wrecks are only
a small percentage of the total
number of ships and boats
known to have gone to the bot-
tom of the bay. The Grand
Traverse Bay Underwater Pre-
serve Council has its own Web
site and Facebook page, www.
gtbup.org, featuring extensive
photos and videos of the
wrecks it has surveyed.

FINE WHINES

'Fan' not as in 'fanatic'


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


I'm a sports fan.
I like to go to games
and watch them on TV I
like to read about sports
and talk about sports
with other fans. I sub-
scribe to three sports
magazines, have ESPN in
my favorites on the DVR
and count six sports-
related shortcuts on my
BlackBerry.
None of this makes me
special in any way. In
fact, it makes me part of
the global nation of men,
women and children
who consider sports a
valuable part of our lives.
That nation, in my
opinion, does not in-
clude the person or per-
sons who trashed Leodis
McKelvin's yard over-
night Monday.
For those of you who
are less sports-conscious,
McKelvin plays for the
Buffalo Bills in the Na-
tional Football League.
He made a boo-boo in
Monday night's game
against the New England
Patriots, fumbling a kick-
off return after he chose
to bring the ball out of
the end zone late in the
game. The Patriots recov-
ered and quickly scored
to take the lead and win,
25-24.
The Patriots are a very
good team, the Bills less
so. But they had been
holding their own against
a division rival in the sea-
son opener, making the


loss especially bitter. Bit-
ter enough, apparently,
for some "fan" or "fans"
to decide to paint the
score and an obscenity
on McKelvin's front lawn.
That is reprehensible.
Pick your sport: foot-
ball, basketball, tennis ....
My favorite happens to
be baseball- my Detroit
Tigers are driving me
crazy as they stumble
toward the playoffs this
year.
But I would no more
consider vandalizing the
home of a player who
gave up a game-winning


home run or who struck
out with the bases loaded
in a loss than I would that
of an actor who stunk in
a movie.
Because it's just a
game. It's entertainment.
If you can't see that, you
need an intervention.
Football fans seem to
be the most rabid (though,
fortunately, nothing to
compare with soccer
hooligans around the
world at least not yet).
It's a violent sport and can
provide a vicarious re-

County seeks public

defenders of natural lands


FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY
COMMUNICATIONS

Sarasota County is
seeking volunteers to
help celebrate the 16th
Annual National Public
Lands Day by improving
habitat and trails at Deer
Prairie Creek Preserve,
7001 Forbes Trail, Venice.
From 8:30 a.m.-noon,
Saturday, Sept. 26, staff
from Sarasota County
Natural Resources will
guide volunteers in re-
moving of invasive plants
and making trail im-
provements.
"Exotic plants have a
tendency to encroach on
and take over native hab-
itats," said Brie Ondercin,
public use coordinator.
"Some invasive plant spe-
cies like Brazilian pepper
are toxic and harmful for
other plants, animals and
even humans. Removing
them keeps them from
spreading farther through-
out the county's natural
areas and into people's
backyards.
"Trimming and clean-
ing up the trails allows
visitors to better explore
our public lands," Onder-
cin added.
National Public Lands
Day is the nation's largest
hands-on volunteer ef-
fort to enhance America's
public lands. Sept. 26
marks the fourth year
that Sarasota will partici-
pate in the annual event,
which is a program of the
National Environmental
Education and Training
Foundation.


During last year's Na-
tional Public Lands Day,
nearly 120,000 volunteers
built trails and bridges,
planted trees and plants,
and removed trash and
invasive plants.
They learned about
the importance of public
lands to the nation's envi-
ronmental, economic
and social health.
For information on
how to register, call 861-
5000 and ask for Natural
Resources.

FAITH, VALUES AND LESSONS


Divorce: What's behind




Christ's teaching?

SUBMITTED BY DAVID MILLER
PASTOR OF FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH


Matthew 5:31-32:
"It has been said, Anyone
who divorces his wife must
give her a certificate of
divorce.' But I tell you that
anyone who divorces his
wife, except for marital
unfaithfulness, causes her
to become an adulteress,
and anyone who marries
the divorced woman com-
mits adultery."
When I took on the chal-
lenge to go through the
Sermon on the Mount, these
two verses almost talked me


out of it. The thought of
preaching on divorce made
me very nervous. It is a topic
that affects so many people.
My fear did not lie in what
Jesus teaches about divorce,
my fear was, and still is, that
the people affected by di-
vorce will not listen to the
truth of what Jesus has to say
and will simply feel as if, once
again, the church is pointing
a condemning finger.
The truth and pain of
divorce is very real and cannot
be swept under the rug.
Anybody that experiences a
divorce the parties involved,
children, the extended fami-
lies and even friends is for-
ever affected by any divorce
situation.
As we work through this
teaching we need to under-
stand the cultural context of
Jesus' day. At this time it was
very common for a man to
divorce his wife for any rea-


son at all. The man would be
able to continue with life
but the woman would be
devastated.
A divorced woman was
forced to live in one of three
ways. She had to rely on a
loving family member who
would take her in, hope that
she would find another man
who would marry a divorced
woman or be relegated to a
life of prostitution in order
to survive. This reality is
why Jesus makes the point
of a "certificate of divorce"
that needs to be given to
the woman so that she
could move on without fear
of further retribution as an
adulteress.
Jesus does not say that
divorce is not an option.
Jesus deals with the reality of
men whose hearts have been
hardened so much that they

Divorce support group brings healing


FROM FIRST BAPTIST
CHURCH OF VENICE


Whether you are in the
earlier or later stages of
divorce or separation and
need information about
ways to heal from the hurt,
financial concerns or loneli-
ness, DivorceCare at First
Baptist Church of Venice can
help.
Shelia Mondi, facilitator
for the program, says people
will find the necessary tools
to begin the healing process
as well as ways to continue
the process after the course is
over.
"The process takes time,"
Mondi said, "depending on


how long they were mar-
ried. But it puts them on the
right road, and they can fall
back on the program or
even come back to the class
again later."
The seminar is a Christ-
centered, video-based series
that features 32 renowned
experts on divorce. The
videos, which include infor-
mation about depression,
finances, dealing with chil-
dren and forgiveness, gener-
ate the discussion groups
that follow, Mondi said.
"It varies as to how much
people want to share," Mondi
said. "Some feel so bad at
first, but once they see that
others are talking, it pulls


them right out of it. There is
strict confidentiality in the
group and people begin to
feel free to speak up. They
feel very safe and secure."
The videos are stand-
alone topics so joiners can
come in the middle of the
series and return later, if they
wish, to learn about topics
they've missed. The support
group is offered twice a year
running for 14-week ses-
sions.
DivorceCare meets from
6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at
the First Baptist Church, 312
W. Miami Ave., and provides
free child care. For more
information, call Beverly
Larson at 485-1314.

lease for its spectators. They all fans need to
leave it in the stands, the living room or the bar, how-
ever.
Athletes, like other working stiffs, are entitled to be
safe at home regardless of how well they perform on
the job. The fact that they work in the public eye does-
n't make their families responsible for a dropped pass
or a missed free throw.
And I really wonder about the type of people who
think it does. What else, if anything, are they as pas-
sionate about? Do they care that much about their
children's education? Do they think it's important to
be politically active? Do they spend even a fraction of
the time they devote to sports to volunteering in their
community?
All that stuff is the cake. Sports is just the icing.

MEDICAL CENTER


NOT ALL EMERGENCIES ARE


created equal.

VENICE REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER


can handle them all.


There are two simple reasons to take all of your emergencies to
Venice Regional Medical Center: we're the right size, and we have
the right doctors and nurses. Unlike larger, regional hospitals and
trauma centers, we won't allow less serious injuries to get lost in the
shuffle. But we also have major medical center resources, like an
open heart surgery program and a certified primary stroke center.
So the next time you have an emergency of any size, it only makes
sense to take it to the one hospital that can handle them all.


* Prompt care for emergencies of all kinds
* All physicians are board certified or board
eligible in emergency medicine
* Certified Primary Stroke Center
* Cardiac catheterization lab on site

REAL ESTATE FINANCES


Rates on 30-year loans



drop to 5.04 percent


WASHINGTON -
Rates for 30-year
home loans edged
down for the third-
straight week and are
close to record lows
reached over the
spring, providing an
excellent opportunity
for borrowers to save
money by refinancing
their home loans.
The average rate for a
30-year fixed mortgage
was 5.04 percent, down
from 5.07 percent a
week earlier, mortgage
company Freddie Mac
said Thursday.
Rates, while above
the record low of 4.78
percent hit in the
spring, are still attrac-
tive for people looking
to buy a home or
refinance. It was the
lowest weekly average
since the week of May
28, when rates aver-
aged 4.91 percent.
To prop up the
housing market and
help the economy
revive from the worst
recession since the


The average rate on a 15-year
fixed-rate mortgage fell to
4.47 percent, from 4.5
percent last week.
Freddie Mac


1930s, the Federal
Reserve is spending
$1.25 trillion on mort-
gage-backed securities,
which has driven down
rates on home loans.
That money is set to
run out by winter,
though some analysts
expect the central bank
to add more money to
the program or allow it
to last longer by
gradually reducing its
purchases.
Sung Won Sohn, an
economics professor at
California State Uni-
versity, Channel
Islands, said rates are
likely to stay low for
another six months or
more, because the


central bank does not
want to imperil a
recovery in the hous-
ing market and the
overall economy by
acting too quickly.
"That would be
economically and
politically unwise,"
Sohn said.
Despite an extraordi-
nary level of govern-
ment intervention to
prop up the mortgage
market, qualifying for
a loan is still tough.
Lenders have tight-
ened their standards
dramatically, so the
best rates are available
to those with solid
credit and a 20 per-
cent down payment.

Freddie Mac collects
mortgage rates on
Monday through
Wednesday of each
week from lenders
around the country.
Rates often fluctuate
significantly, even
within a given day.
The average rate on
a 15-year fixed-rate
mortgage fell to 4.47
percent, from 4.5


percent last week,
according to Freddie
Mac. That was the
lowest level on records
dating to 1991.
Rates on five-year,
adjustable-rate mort-
gages averaged 4.51
percent, unchanged
from a week earlier.
Rates on one-year,
adjustable-rate mort-
gages fell to 4.58


percent from 4.64
percent. The rates do
not include add-on
fees known as points.
The nationwide fee for
loans in Freddie Mac's
survey averaged 0.7
point for 30-year loans
and 0.6 point for 15-
year mortgages. The
fee averaged 0.5 point
for five-year and one-
year loans.

Retiree settles down with rocket-powered 'Olds'


The 1957 T-Bird over
a diamond engage-
ment ring article
last week was a big hit
with the lady readers,
and proof to men that
some women really
enjoy the old car hobby
too. Today's column is
somewhat similar,
involving a woman,
along with a bright red
1955 Oldsmobile 98
hardtop belonging to a
former high school
classmate from years
ago. That vehicle's
owner, William "Billy"
Pelley, 58, formerly of
Agawam, Mass., had
retired after being a
fireman with 33 years of
service there, moving to
Charlotte County in
2004.
Billy went to the
gigantic "Turkey Run"
collector car event last
fall at the Daytona
Raceway, which takes
place each Thanksgiving
weekend. He had always
wanted to get involved
with older classic-type
cars, but for various
reasons didn't. When the
big red Olds with its
Rocket V8 engine caught
his eye, the image of that
particular auto stayed
with him as he walked
among the several
thousand vehicles. A
decision was made to
purchase it that very day,
and a friend brought this
four-wheel gem to
Pelley's garage in Punta
Gorda.
Within a month or so,
Billy went north to
attend a high school
reunion, and during that
gala evening spotted
Donna Fadgen, now
Ormsby, a former
classmate. There seemed
to be instant charisma as
they spoke about their
younger days and what
had taken place over the
years. He told her about
his past, including being
divorced for 20 years,


SUN PHOTO BY LEE ROYSTON


and she too was
divorced since 1996,
thus both were free and
that was how they got
together. Billy said
growing up, Donna was
a serious girl, focused on
good grades and plans to
go to college with
teaching as a career. He
respected that then and
even now, as she plans to
continue teaching for
two more years before
retiring. Billy has two
grown children and one
grandchild. Donna also
has two grown children.
Meanwhile, when not
working in her profes-
sion, Donna and Billy
are together as much as
possible, often in the
Oldsmobile when in the
Sunshine State. They
both truly like motoring
about in this big, fast,
impressive, long wheel-
base, top-of-the-line
Olds. I met them at a
show presented by
Muscle Car City in mid-
July, and the happiness
is very apparent.
Regarding Billy's life,


there was much more
than being a fireman for
all those years. He was a
mechanic who main-
tained the fire equip-
ment for 13 years, and a
part-time contractor,
using his skills as a
carpenter to build
approximately 25 houses
from 1972 to 2004. The
thing he liked and did
best in his rare free time
was driving NASCAR
Modified Division race
cars, plus open wheel-
style machines. So good
was Billy, a record of 70
wins at Riverside Park
Speedway in Agawam
still stands. This accom-
plished man also owned
race cars using some of
the best-known drivers,
such as Reggie Ruggiero
and Bob Polverari.
Finally in 1998, he sold
out and quit the racing
scene entirely.
Some quick informa-
tion about his personal
car background: He
started at age 16 with a
blue 1955 Chevy, moving
on to buying and selling


a total of more than 200
varied vehicles. Among
his favorites were 1965
and 1968 Corvettes, a
1959 Mercedes 190 SL,
five different GTOs, and
a super 1965 Olds 442
coupe.
Specifications of this
1955 Olds 98 four-door
hardtop: wheelbase, 126
inches; weight, 3,976
pounds; engine, V-8;
324-cubic-inch high
compression; 202
horsepower*; base price,
$3,140; production of
this model, only 31,267.
(*Note: horsepower was
rated differently in the
1950s. The 202 horse-
power was with acces-
sories installed and
working. Powerful
indeed for that time
period.)
