Osprey redevelopment project a hot topic


Proposed redevelopment project in South County
draws controversy.


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Fourteen acres of land with
a view of Little Sarasota Bay
have been the hot property -
and the hot topic regarding
Osprey for the past three
weeks.
Twice, first with the Sarasota
County Planning Commission
and then with the county com-
mission, public hearings have
carried over to a second day
because of the number of local
residents who spoke on the is-
sue. Wednesday, county com-
missioners spent about six
hours on the subject (includ-
ing the entire public portion)

stopped

STAFF REPORT

An investigation into child
porn activity began in Sep-
tember and ended in an arrest
in December, according to a
Sarasota County Sheriff's Of-
fice report.
The investigation began
when Photobucket.com sub-
mitted information to the
National Center for Missing
and Exploited Children's Tip-
line. That information was
shared with the Internet
Crimes Against Children Task
Force and di-
rected to the
SCSO, which
is an ICAC
member.

bucket.
com admin-
istration re-
ported that a '
male client Ladd
had uploaded
child pornographic images to
the Photobucket.com Web
servers on Sept. 8. Photo-
bucket had the clients user-
name, e-mail address and
Internet Protocol address.
After receiving information
that led to the man's address,
detectives went to his home
where they encountered the
man's fiance. After giving con-
sent for detectives to enter the
home, she told them there
were three computers and a
portable hard drive in the
house. She also said she had
purchased the laptop comput-
er new for the man, but that he
had it password protected and
did not give her the password.
She could only give consent to
search two of the three com-
puters. The third computer
and portable hard drive were
under the control of the man.
The finance was made
aware of the issue with Pho-
tobucket.com and said she
had asked the man to open an
account and upload photos of
a vacation.

before voting 5-0 to continue
the hearing on Dec. 30.
At the core of the debate is a
redevelopment proposal using
a new zoning category -
planned mixed-use infill, or
PMI, that took two years before
it was adopted. If approved by
the county commission, the
project located west of U.S. 41
and south of West Bay Street
would serve as the template
for future projects.
County commissioners
peppered Victor Dover of
Dover Kohl & Partners, the
project designers, and other
experts in an attempt to pin
down certain points, including
the square footage designated


for retail, green space, a public
waterfront park, the height of
buildings, buffers, boundaries
and a proposed 84-foot, six-
story landmark building with
cupola designated as the pro-
posed site of a potential four-
star hotel. The proposed hotel
would consist of 190 units.
The project would have 236
residential units and a mix of
commercial uses including
36,700 square feet of shops, a
waterfront restaurant, retail
and general office. The Osprey
Revitalization Committee ap-
proved both petitions 4-1 but
included a condition limiting
building height at 57 feet.
When a suggestion was
made that the commissioners
approve the project and have
attorneys then work on the
fine points, Commissioner


Shannon Staub immediately
replied, "No." Other commis-
sioners followed, agreeing they
want to see the wording of any
stipulations before they vote.
"I think they are trying to get
the language they want," said
Aniklumar Patel, the owner of
the Spanish Pointe Pub, 135
Bayview Drive, Osprey, and the
driving force for the redevelop-
ment.
Patel owns 5.5 acres of the
14-acre parcel and has tried
since 2004 to redevelop the
area. This most recent proposal
involves a design by Dover Kohl
& Partners, which was hired for
the project last summer.
The remaining combined
acreage is the product of
option agreements with parcel
owners. When commissioners
first talked of carrying over the

Storage replacing eyesore


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Close to the busiest inter-
section in Venice, the old Cox
Lumber Yard at 100 Center
Road has been acquired by
Brian McMurphy who will
develop it as Big Toys Storage
Center and a retail showroom
for high end and classic used
cars.
"We have been working on
the project for a year," said
McMurphy. "It needs a lot of
work to clean-up having been
an eyesore here for years."
The 3.54 acres was pur-
chased for $700,000 from HD
Supply Inc. and includes
around 50,000 square feet of
buildings constructed in 1978.
McMurphy lives in Noko-
mis and in 1989 opened Brian's
Auto Company, 707 South
Tamiami Trail, Osprey when he
came from Flushing, Mich.,
having grown up in the used
car business. With input from
his father Glen McMurphy, he

hearing to Jan. 15, Patel and his
agents responded that the
deadline for the first options is
Dec. 31. The commissioners
asked Patel to try for exten-
sions into January but set the
Dec. 30 special meeting as a
precaution.
Currently, Patel said, his
attorney is working on both an
extension and on the language
in the application stipulations.
Patel said the goal is "no
more wrinkles."
PMI, as described by de-
signers and county planning
officials, is almost a throwback
to the days of the small village
commons or its larger cous-
in, the town square. A person

EWD to set

new sewer

assessment

BY STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

First thing after the New
Year, Englewood Water District
supervisors will discuss how
they want property owners to
finance a new sewer expansion
project.
The supervisors meet Jan. 7
and are scheduled to discuss
how to structure the assess-
ments for property owners
within what will become the V-
9 vacuum sewer project along
Manasota Beach Road to
Lemon Bay.
Supervisors have already set
a public hearing on the project
for 6 p.m. Jan. 22 at the
Suncoast Auditorium, adja-
cent to Englewood
Community Hospital.
For the $5.7-million V-9
expansion, single-family resi-
dential property owners 533
equivalent residential connec-
tions within the sewer
expansion area can expect a
$8,642.10 assessment per con-
nection.
The district will subsidize
$200,000 of the project cost to
help keep the assessments to a
minimum, one that equates to
the impact fee the district
charges new development for
sewer service.
What has to be determined
is how to collect the assess-
ment and what if any -
interest to charge on pay-
ments.
Among the options, district
staff recommended an annual
assessment be added to
Sarasota County property tax
bills. It could be paid over six
years without interest. The
estimated annual assessment
payment could be more than
$1,442 added to the property
taxes.
"We did that to make it as
affordable as possible," EWD
Administrator Rich Rollo said.
"Six years, the cash flow was
just right for design and con-
struction. The zero percent
was to make it affordable (to
property owners)."
However, the district will
recognize the discount proper-
ty owners receive for paying
their taxes early- 4 percent in
November, 3 percent in
December, 2 percent in

Covered parking

BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

The board ofVenice Area Beautification
Inc., who was primarily responsible for
the planning, obtaining funding, and
overseeing the construction of the
Venetian Waterway Park, has always con-
sidered the trail a work in progress.
The latest continuous improvement
project is a recently constructed parking
area. Located under the west end of the
Col. George Kumpf Bridge, also called by
some the the Venice Avenue Bridge, the park-
ing area consists of 15 shaded parking
spaces. The area, situated only a few feet
from the park, provides users easy access
to the approximately 10 miles of trail.
When you consider the additional 10
miles of the adjoining Legacy Trail, you
are provided with 20 miles of a wonder-
ful biking, walking, or jogging opportu-
nity.
The person responsible for the new
parking lot project was VABI volunteer
Terry Redman. Known for his community
involvement, Terry identified this piece of
unused county property and turned it
into a community asset.
Funding for the project was provided
by a matching grant through the coopera-
tive partnership of the Gulf Coast
Foundation of Venice and VABI.

Area foreclosures continue to seesaw


Initial filings rise in Sarasota County, fall in Charlotte County


BY JOSH SALMAN
STAFF WRITER

As Southwest Florida
continues to ride a fore-
closure roller coaster,
Charlotte County seems
to be leading the way
toward recovery.
Charlotte reported
318 initial foreclosure fil-
ings for November, a 20
percent dip from Oct-
ober and a 2 percent
slide from the same time
last year, according to the
clerk's office.
While county foreclo-
sures still remain esca-
lated from a worldwide
recession, local real estate
agents say year-to-date
figures show promise,
with initial filings trail-
ing last year's pace.
Still, the area has a
long way to go, said
Karen Rolland, presi-
dent of the Punta Gorda-
Port Charlotte-North Port
Association of Realtors.
"The foreclosures are
still a little spooky," she
said. "The quicker we get
rid of them, the better."
With one month re-
maining, Charlotte Coun-
ty reported 4,195 fore-
closures in 2009. That's
a slight improvement
from the 4,922 foreclo-
sures the county wit-
nessed in all of 2008.
However, Rolland said
it's not time to celebrate
yet.
"Until we get rid of
these foreclosures, we're
not going to see a full
recovery," she said.
Sarasota County's
story is similar.
The county had 722
foreclosures filed in Nov-
ember, a slight increase
from October's 714. But
like Charlotte, Sarasota
is still behind last year's
pace. Year-to-date, the
county reported 8,710
foreclosures, compared
to 9,088 in all of 2008,
according to the Sarasota
County Clerk of Court.
But not everyone sees
it that way.
While area clerks of
court report numbers
that hint promise, Realty-
Trac Inc. released figures
this week that tell a dif-
ferent story.
The independent on-
line database reported
that Charlotte County
had 949 foreclosures in
November, with 1,286 in
Sarasota. Statewide, there
were 52,935 foreclosures,
the statistics show.
According to Realty-
Trac's findings, foreclo-
sures in Charlotte more
than doubled from the
same time a year ago,
and Sarasota's figures
jumped 20 percent. The
company's Web site
notes some foreclosures
may have been recorded
in previous months.
Company spokesman
Daren Blomquist also
said aside from initial fil-
ings, RealtyTrac includes
notices of foreclosure
sales and notices of bank
reclamations in their
monthly report.
"Our numbers are a
combination of the dif-
ferent notices we track,"
Blomquist said. "If you
break out just the lis pen-
dants (initial filings) the
numbers are much clos-
er. There's also a time lag
in our process."

foreclosures will drop
rounding out the year
and into 2010 a trend
that will restore con-
sumer confidence and


return wealth to the mid-
dle class, said Walter
Molony, spokesman for
the National Association
of Realtors.


"We know foreclo-
sures are going to con-
tinue coming into the
pipeline," he said. "But
we're going to start to see


them taper off. People
were not doing due dili-
gence, and many of
these sales were made
with no common sense.
We've overcompensated
for that now."
Molony said the situa-
tion could be much worse.
The extension and
expansion of a federal
tax credit for first-time
home buyers has boost-
ed demand for distressed
properties, soaking up
inventory. In fact, 37 per-
cent of all sales this year
have been foreclosures,
he said.
Molony predicts as
inventory continues to
shrink and lenders con-
tinue to be wary, these


trends soon will shift to
traditional sales, ulti-
mately improving the
overall market outlook.
And that is all local
governments are hoping
for.
"It's very important that
the market rebounds,"
Charlotte County Com-
missioner Robert Skid-
more said. "We are still
very reliant on a few
industries, including real
estate, and foreclosures
are a big part of that. But
we are starting to see signs
of recovery, and there's no
doubt Florida remains a
great place to live."

Ban on driving while texting already overdue


It may seem curious that laws
designed to ensure public safety
would be based on polling, but it
often takes a wave of popular (read:
"voter") opinion to get lawmakers'
attention, especially when the issue
involves the restriction of personal
freedoms.
It's even more curious bizarre,
even -that anyone would champion
the personal freedom to type out text
messages on a cell phone while sitting
behind the wheel of a 3,000-pound
automobile traveling 50 mph.
How about the freedom to read
"War and Peace" while driving, or the
freedom to watch "The Today Show"
on a miniature TV on the dashboard,
or the freedom to change a baby's dia-
per or mix a dry martini?


Distractions make the roads un-
safe for everyone. And since federal
highway officials estimate that 80 per-
cent of all accidents in this country
involve distracted drivers, it's a good
idea to try to minimize them. While
diaper-changing and drink-mixing
are so rare we'd never expect laws to
ban those specific activities, driving
while texting is not, especially among
younger drivers.
In a 2007 study done by Liberty
Mutual Insurance Group, 50 percent
of teenagers said they sent text mes-
sages while driving, even though they
knew it was dangerous behavior. A
recent Virginia Tech study indicated
drivers were 23 times more likely to be
involved in a crash or near-crash if
they were texting while driving.


Statistically, it's more dangerous than
drunk driving.
You can't legislate against every
specific driver distraction, but you
can't ignore the clear and present
dangers associated with cell-phone
use.
It was good to see Gov. Charlie Crist
recently add his voice to those sup-
porting a driving-while-texting ban.
Always one to have his finger on the
public pulse, Crist told reporters, "The
obvious danger of (texting while dri-
ving) is absurd."
He even nudged Julie Jones, the
executive director of the Department
of Highway Safety and Motor Ve-
hicles, to agree to include on a list of
legislative priorities. Jones later said
she sensed a shift in public opinion


toward a texting ban.
It's hard to miss. A recent NewYork
Times/CBS News poll indicated 97
percent of those surveyed supported
a text ban. That's as close to unani-
mous as you'll ever get.
Rep. Doug Holder, R-Osprey, offer-
ed a DWT bill in the last session, but it
was essentially DOA. A dozen more
bills are reportedly in the legislative
hopper this year. It's time.
Already, 18 states and the District
of Columbia have some form of tex-
ting ban. Congress may consider leg-
islation that would strong-arm other
states into following suit. There's no
need to wait. Florida simply should
do the simple, obvious thing and get a
law passed as soon as possible next
year.


'Auld Lang Syne'



and resolutions


w


MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


Does anyone really know all
the words to "'Auld Lang Syne"?
After the part about passing a
cup of kindness, they've lost
me and everyone else standing
around pretending.
Whatever every Dec. 31
as the clock strikes midnight,
that song is played and I begin
making my New Year's resolu-
tions.
I resolve that I will never
leave my house in the wee
small hours of the morning to
mail letters and hit some golf
balls.
I resolve to let go of all my
feelings of guilt and get in
touch with my inner socio-
path.
I resolve to suffer in silence,
because nobody cares about
my problems anyway.
I resolve (as I wish our city
council would) to forgive- as it
is cheaper and less time con-
suming than a lawsuit.
I resolve never to crash a
party at the White House wear-
ing a tacky, cut-out red dress.
I resolve to let go of jealous
resentment. I just wish it had
been me who had said that
Tiger Woods wanted to have
his Kate and Edith too, and not
our editor in his little "Fine
Whines" column.
I resolve to stop "accidental-
ly" shoving my shopping cart
into the lower anatomy of
mean old men shoppers.
I resolve never to criticize
anyone until I have walked a
mile in his shoes. What can he
do? He's a mile away and bare-


foot.
I resolve to be more tolerant
of people who do not share my
political beliefs. It is unkind to
criticize the mentally chal-
lenged.
I resolve to follow my doc-
tor's orders and drink no more
than two glasses of wine per
day. He did not specify the size
of the glass.
I resolve to exercise every
day, or three times a week, or
whenever there's a full moon,
or something like that.
I resolve to stop multi-task-
ing as I am tired of finding
myself in rooms and wonder-
ing what I'm doing there.
I resolve never again to
rehash old jokes in order to get
a little humor in my columns.
Anyway, I've been told that I'm
funnier when I'm being seri-
ous.
I firmly resolve never to
refer to myself as "old."
As we get older and more
manuredd," let our main reso-
lution for 2010 be to encour-
age others to treat us with the
respect we deserve. Resolve
never to apologize for any
shortcomings by saying things
like, "Oh, well, I'm just too old."
Don't allow society to try to
squeeze us out of life like
toothpaste from a tube that's
come to the end. The only
good things about being
referred to as a "senior citizen"
are the discounts that come
with it.
You never hear teenagers
saying things like, "I'm too
young to know much about
that." So, let's pull our shoul-
ders back, keep our chins up
and walk tall. You can't be put
on an actuarial table unless
you permit it.
Happy New Year!

WHAT IS CITY COUNCIL'S BIGGEST CHALLENGE IN THE NEW YEAR? CALL US AT 207-1111.


Bennies are compensation

Stuckeed again. Lifetime insurance for Venice City Council
members, their spouses and charter officers and their spouses
- something doesn't seem right here. It seems like they do have
this for life but the question has to be asked, when and how did
it first appear? And who approved it? If it was done by a city
council vote, it would have to be in the city council minutes,
which have to be retained forever. So the permanent record is
somewhere in city hall.
However, according to a state attorney general's opinion
issued in 2004 by the then Attorney General Charlie Crist, who is
now our governor, issued a legal opinion stating that medical
insurance benefits are a form of compensation. This opinion
was issued to Robbie Robinson who is the attorney for the city of
North Port.
Therefore, since the legal opinion states that medical insur-
ance is a form of compensation, this benefit should have gone
before the voters of Venice as part of a referendum on an
increase in benefits. It's city law folks, it's not mind boggling.
A former city council member stated that when he came
aboard, the city council made very little wages. Well, he knew
what the wages were when he signed up for council. Any
increase in wages had to approved by a referendum. It should
have gone before the voters. It was a benefit given to them ille-
gally. The taxpayers seem to be the stuckees once again.


Off key. I just watched the
National Christmas Tree
Lighting program on TV Were
those singers the best they
could get? The only one who
sang on key was Santa. Oh,
how I wish for another Kate
Smith. I'm African-American
so I can say this: There were
too many of my kind on the
program. Let's not over do it.
Capitol Christmas. I was
disappointed in the television
show of Christmas in the White
House. Other years we have
seen beautiful trees and so
forth. This one was purely a
political interview by Oprah of
the president. She elected him
once and it seems like this
Christmas at the White House
was just the beginning of a sec-
ond one.
Attaboy. I am not calling to
complain this morning but to
congratulate. First of all, I con-
gratulate you on your Let'em
Have It line and then to tell you
about the wonderful experi-
ence I had at the Salvation
Army. On Sunday, I had the
privilege to go to their church
service and it was outstanding.
They did a beautiful job.
Thanks to the Salvation Army


Let 'em


Have It


for making my Christmas so
special.
Cooold. I'm freezing. I hate
it. I wish it were August.
Survivor. I've lived in
Venice for a number of years
and remember voting for addi-
tional monies for the mayor
and for city council members. I
do not recall voting for any
additional benefits of any kind
for their part-time positions.


Past mayors and council peo-
ple should quit bellyaching ...
you will survive. I've lost all of
my benefits and I survived. So,
welcome to the club.
Bag tax. I'm calling in re-
sponse to your reader about
taxes for plastic bags. Yes, I think
she's 100 percent correct. We
need to enforce the laws that are
already on the books for people
that litter. Never mind any new
taxes, we have more than what
we can handle.
Cops welcome. This is in
response to the letter in Sat-
urday's Let'em Have It regard-
ing restaurants and coffee
shops that give preferential
discounts to policemen when
they come into their establish-
ments. Most businesses appre-
ciate the presence of law en-
forcement in their establish-
ments. Lower-end restaurants
especially appreciate that so
they offer these incentives to
the police officers to come into
their businesses. Their pres-
ence there makes a difference
to their customers and the
safety of their employees.
That's the reason they do that,
and it serves a useful purpose.
Common sense. I'm call-
ing about post office delivery.
It's not a bad idea to cancel
home delivery of mail on
Saturday. Most folks now
send less than one-half of the
amount of mail through the
post office as in prior years,
partly from using the comput-
er and sending of e-mails. The
cost savings would be substan-
tial, actually in the hundreds of
millions of dollars. Can't believe
the post office management and
unions can't agree with such a
potential reduction in the cost of
doing business. Let common
sense prevail.
Quaint. The city of Venice
should not restrict early place-
ment of chairs for the parade.
It's one of the quaint and fun
things about our community
and it's one of the things that
makes Venice special.
Hours, not days. Yes, they
should replace the early place-
ment chairs and be able to
place your chair only a few
hours before, that's all.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Part of what makes

Venice so special

Editor:
In response to the several calls about those who
put their chairs out early to view a parade being self-
ish, I see it in a totally different light.
When I first moved here from the Chicago area six
years ago, I was amazed that people could actually
leave their chairs out one or two days in advance of an
event and have them still there at the event. They
would have lasted about 5 minutes where I came
from. When I first saw this I immediately wrote my
friends back in Chicago and said, "You're not going to
believe this ... "and they didn't.
I think it is a testimony to the town that we have
that many honest people and so many who still trust
in the goodness of human nature. I think it will be a
mark of town deterioration if we ever get to a point
when people can no longer safely do this.
I'm very happy to live in a place where we still have
the freedom to trust.

Don't blame
it on C02

Editor:
I encourage the rejec-
tion of the Copenhagen
Treaty. Its premise is
flawed. It places burdens
on the United States
while allowing other in-
dustrial countries, like
China and India, to re-
main unrestricted. Even
if enacted, the science is
inconclusive whether
this would cease climate
change.
In our country, there
are some in Congress
who want to pass laws
that limit the amount of
C02 in the atmosphere.


They claim that C02 is a
pollutant. That is a myth
and absolutely false.
There is no scientific
proof that C02 is a pollu-
tant.
Here's what I am tell-
ing my representatives in
Congress:
1. The rush to label
C02 as a pollutant or
pass cap-and-trade legis-
lation will hurt our na-
tion's economic recovery.
2. There no scientific
evidence that C02 is a
pollutant.
3. Higher C02 concen-
trations actually help
ecosystems support more
plant and animal life.
4. C02 is not even


close to being the most
important of the green-
house gases. Most of the
greenhouse effect is due
to water vapor, which is
about 30 times as abun-
dant in the atmosphere
as C02 and has a much
larger greenhouse effect.
5. It has been proven
that higher levels of C02
result in more plant
growth as well as less
water being required for
plants to grow faster and
larger.
6. While C02 accounts
for less than one percent
of the atmosphere, C02
is essential to life on
Earth. In fact, we all ex-
hale C02 and enjoy it in
our carbonated bever-
ages.

Mayor Ed Martin's fir-
ing of the chair and vice
chair of the Venice Plan-
ning Commission ap-
pears to be an attempt to
mute any opposition to
the mayor's short-sight-
ed, no-growth agenda.
His actions seem to be
those of someone more
interested in promoting
his personal views than
promoting the future
prosperity of our city.
Mr. Martin's time and
energy would have been
much better spent in
replacing the city attor-
ney, Robert Anderson.
Some time ago, it was
reported in the newspa-
pers that Mr. Anderson
failed to present to city


council an early settle-
ment proposal of less
than $20,000 in the
Sunshine Law litigation.
However, protracted liti-
gation and continued
violations of the
Sunshine Law by city
council members even-
tually cost Venice taxpay-
ers more than $750,000
to settle the case. If that
reported failure is true,
the failure should be
considered as cause for
dismissal, or at least a
probationary period of
supervised activity and
reduced autonomy.
City council must review
its priorities, get better
advice, consider the
long-term outlook and
truly work for the future
good of our city. Its report
card to date is an
unquestionable failing
grade.

First off, we won't have

well, at least I hope not.
But the sad part is, just
how many taxpayer dol-

that nothing needs to be

Editor:
The November 2008

County's audited pre-

the manual audit. This
should have been inves-
tigated by the supervisor

wrote this fact on his re-
port. He also wrote "no

ended, no clerk admitted
to doing this and the
audit log showed that no
ballots were cast after the
election was closed.
Thus, the cause of this
error remains a mystery.
The November 2008
election audit also
showed that Sarasota's
Precinct 138 early voting
had two ballots more
than the machines re-
corded.
With two out of the
four audited precincts
showing counting errors,
one could estimate that
maybe as many as half of
the other 153 precincts
could show failures. The
machines involved in
these failures should
have been analyzed by
the state and by the
Sarasota SOE immedi-
ately after the audit
results. They never were.
This evidence shows
that a 2-percent audit of
one issue can reveal
machine failures. How-
ever, if no government
body investigates the
cause of such errors and
inconsistencies, these
failures will continue to
occur.

The proven way to revive the economy


VERN BUCHANAN
GUEST COLUMNIST



Americans have a lot
of challenging issues fac-
ing us right now. And
none is more important
than jobs and the econo-
my. So I was pleased to
see President Obama re-
focus his attention re-
cently on rebuilding our
economy and creating
jobs.
I was especially en-
couraged that the presi-
dent was making it a pri-
ority to help small busi-
nesses, which create
most of the jobs in this
country. But I remain
concerned that many of
the big-government poli-
cies and reckless spend-
ing the administration
continues to pursue will
hurt, not help, our efforts
to create jobs and get our
economy moving again.
Although there have
been some positive signs
of recovery, with a na-
tional unemployment


rate of 10 percent it is a
jobless recovery at best.
We need to scrap job-
killing policies that are
causing small businesses
to hold off on hiring and
enact legislation that will
help put people back to
work.
I'm a businessman,
not a politician. I have
experience with starting
businesses and creating
jobs.
Here are some dos
and don't to create jobs.
Do help small busi-
ness small business,
not government, is the
engine of our economy.
To grow the economy, we
need to help small busi-
nesses access credit, ex-
pand and hire more
workers.
I support the presi-
dent's proposal to elimi-
nate fees and increase
guarantees for small
businesses that borrow
though major Small
Business Administration
programs in 2010.
I also support his pro-
posals for tax relief, in-
cluding a one-year elimi-
nation of the capital
gains tax for small busi-
nesses and tax incentives
to encourage firms to
hire and retain workers.
We should also freeze
stimulus spending and
use unspent stimulus
dollars to help small
businesses put people


back to work.
Do assist the unem-
ployed currently, the
federal government actu-
ally imposes income tax-
es on individuals receiv-
ing unemployment ben-
efits. As a result, approxi-
mately 11 percent of their
unemployment benefits
go to the federal govern-
ment.
In extraordinary times
like now, we should make
unemployment benefits
tax free so that individu-
als between jobs can
focus on providing for
their families.
Do enact free-trade
agreements -now would
also be a good time to cre-
ate new markets for
American goods by enact-
ing the three pending
free-trade agreements.
Recently, President
Obama said that increas-
ing U.S. exports by just 1
percent would create
more than 250,000 jobs.
The independent In-
ternational Trade Com-
mission has estimated
that implementation of
trade agreements with
Panama, Columbia and
South Korea would
increase U.S. exports by
more than 1 percent.
Do take deficits seri-
ously we need to re-
duce spending and bal-
ance the budget to show
global investors that we
are taking our deficit seri-


ously as their invest-
ments help create jobs
here in America. This is
also important to
strengthen the dollar,
reduce inflation and hold
down interest rates.
Do curb frivolous
lawsuits lawsuit abuse
threatens jobs and raises
prices for all consumers.
We can boost our econo-
my and protect Amer-
ican jobs by enacting
legal reforms to curb friv-
olous lawsuits.
Don't raise taxes -
the worst thing we could
do in a slow economy is
raise taxes on small busi-
nesses. Yet that is precise-
ly what would happen
under the health-care bill
that passed the House.
The bill includes a 5.4
percent surcharge on
those with income of
$500,000, which are
mostly small business
owners.


Furthermore, small
businesses that can't
afford to provide health
insurance coverage to
their workers would be
charged a job-killing 8
percent payroll tax.
These taxes combined
with the expiring tax cuts
of 2001 and 2003 would
result in a whopping tax
rate of 45 percent.
We should make the
tax cuts permanent to
make more capital avail-
able for small businesses
to invest and expand and
eliminate the uncertain-
ty of short term exten-
sions.
Don't use TARP mon-
ey as a slush fund the
president has proposed
using TARP money to pay
for a new stimulus pack-
age. We can't spend our
way to an economic re-
covery. Unspent and re-
covered TARP funds
should be used to reduce


the deficit.
Don't enact job-kill-
ing policies cap-and-
trade, the House health-
care bill and union card-
check legislation would
increase costs on small
businesses and kill jobs
at a time when we should
be encouraging job
growth.
We are facing the
worst economy since the
Great Depression. But
instead of spending tril-
lions of dollars on Wall
Street bailouts and big-
government programs
that continue to increase
the deficit, we should
enact targeted measures
to help small businesses
and working families,
boost the economy and
put people back to work.

Why Venice is a member of ICLEI


ICLEI propagates a farce


RICK MAGEE
GUEST COLUMNIST


A recent front-page
article in the Gondolier
Sun reported on three
citizens who had submit-
ted a petition with 79
names protesting Ven-
ice's membership in a
"United Nations-spon-
sored planning organiza-
tion" that promotes sus-
tainable development.
The citizens, none of
whom live in the city of
Venice, were concerned
that membership in ICLEI
would eventually lead to
the loss of individual prop-
erty rights and the takeover
of our country by "world
government powers."
A bit of history: In
October 2007, under the
leadership of Mayor Fred
Hammett, the city council
passed Resolution 2007-
40 endorsing the U.S.
Mayors' Climate Pro-
tection Agreement. It re-
solved that the city would
work in conjunction with
ICLEI and other appropri-
ate organizations to track
progress and implemen-
tation of that Agreement.
This is how it came about
that Venice joined ICLEI.
Venice is not a member of
ICLEI-Intemational; it is a
member of ICLEI-USA.
In becoming a mem-
ber of ICLEI-USA, the
city of Venice joined
Sarasota and Naples, as
well as major U.S. cities.

What is ICLEI-USA?
ICLEI-USA is a non-


profit membership asso-
ciation of local govern-
ments that assists mem-
bers committed to cli-
mate protection, clean
energy solutions, and
sustainability. Annual
dues for the city ofVenice
are $600. Much like the
American Medical Asso-
ciation does not tell
physicians how to run
their private practices,
ICLEI-USA does not
mandate, impose, or en-
force any national or
international policies or
initiatives on its local
government members,
and has no authority
over them.
ICLEI-USA is not a
United Nations agency
or controlled by the U.N.
in any way. It is an inde-
pendent non-profit asso-
ciation. However, ICLEI-
USA staff do attend U.N.
proceedings alongside
official delegates to help
represent the voices and
needs of local govern-
ments to both national
governments and inter-
national organizations in
these forums.
The anti-ICLEI peti-
tion that is circulating in
some areas of the coun-
try was designed last
summer by a non-profit
organization called the
American Policy Center,
based in Washington,
D.C. Partially funded by
the Exxon Corporation,
and founded in 1988 to
preserve American sover-
eignty from intrusive U.N.
policies on global gover-
nance, this organization
has a long history of
opposing any reduction in
fossil fuel use, often resort-
ing to scare tactics.
For instance, during
the 1997 debate on EPA's
proposed new particu-
late standards, the Cen-
ter sent out a fund-rais-
ing letter falsely claiming
that the EPA was on the


verge of banning back-
yard barbecues to gain
compliance. It is also
connected with a group
called Freedom 21,
which claims that the
eventual U.N. takeover of
our country will result in
the elimination of all pri-
vate property rights.
The petition, which
opposes the concept of
"sustainable develop-
ment," is misleading in
several areas: it claims
that ICLEI operates in
secret, which it does not.
It claims that the theory
of global warming is
unproven, while the gen-
eral scientific communi-
ty now accepts that sci-
entific theory, and it in-
fers that individual prop-
erty rights are at risk,
which they are not.
ICLEI-USAs main pro-
gram links local action to
internationally- agreed
upon goals and targets. It
promotes a city-led,
community-wide, and
participatory effort to
establish a comprehen-
sive action strategy for
environmental protec-
tion, economic prosperi-
ty and community well-
being in Venice.
ICLEI-USA helps the
city identify local sus-
tainability priorities and
implement long-term
action plans, involving
both citizens and the
business community,
and addresses and prior-
itizes sustainable devel-
opment issues for Venice.
The city of Venice's
membership in ICLEI-
USA will reduce energy
costs and save taxpayer
dollars, reduce harmful
greenhouse gas pollution,
create clean energy jobs,
and enhance public health.

Force.


RICH ANGLEY
GUEST COLUMNIST


The Copenhagen Con-
ference. Will it affect us
here in Venice? It already
has. This conference and
past conferences like
Kyoto have succeed
immensely. The purpose
of these environmental
conferences is to exert
pressure on national gov-
ernments to fall in line.
This filters down to
Venice and Sarasota
County with their mem-
bership in nice sounding
organizations such as
ICLEI Local Govern-
ments for Sustainability.
This NGO of the U.N.
is an arm of a movement
whose purpose has been
to bring our communi-
ties into line with the
goals of the United
Nations. These goals are
undoubtedly Marxist
and fascist in nature and
are intended to ease
communities into global
governance under the
guise of "sustainable
development."
Their job is to facilitate
political action to make
things happen. Due to
this pressure, our Con-
gress is considering Cap
and Trade legislation
which will crush our
economy while our
President is in Copen-
hagen for the express
purpose of engaging our
country in an environ-
mental treaty which will
override the U.S. Con-
stitution and institute a


controlling environmen-
tal authority over our
beloved U.S.A.
And if that isn't
enough, the new global
authority expects to ini-
tially raise $10 billion in
new taxes per year (rising
to $50 billion by 2015)
from the U.S. to fund
itself from our already
ailing economy through
taxes on energy, air travel
and financial transac-
tions.
All this is being com-
mitted upon us in the
name of saving the plan-
et from the big green
environmental bogey-
man called "global warn-
ing." In Copenhagen
recently. U.N. Secretary
General Ban Ki-Moon
said, "We will establish a
global governance struc-
ture to monitor and
manage the implemen-
tation of this. It is going
to be a binding political
deal which will lead to a
legally binding treaty
next year."
Now wait a minute
you say, we didn't vote on
this and what about
Climategate? You know
that "inconvenient truth"
about the science behind
global warning being a
big scam. Several thou-
sands of e-mails from the
scientists who report to
the U.N.'s Inter-govern-
mental Panel on Climate
Change prove that the
scientific data was ma-
nipulated and that the
scientists made concert-
ed efforts to silence any
scientist that offered op-
posing information.
Our industrial base is
being destroyed and our
jobs sent overseas, for
what? A fraud. Let's con-
sider this. We should be
good stewards of the
environment but we're
doing this to reduce a
naturally occurring gas.
C)2 is produced by every


living creature. It is less
than 4 percent of the
atmosphere and the
amount produced by
human activity is less
then one quarter of one
percent of the atmos-
phere. Even with the
most austere C02 cuts it
is estimated that in 100
years the earth's temper-
ature could only be
reduced by slightly more
than one tenth of a
decree C. With Florida's
unemployment rate at
11.5 percent and rising,
why do our politicians
stick with this farce in the
face of such overwhelm-
ing evidence of deceit?
At a recent Venice City
Council meeting Council
Member Sue Lang on the
record made it very clear
that she would continue
to support the ICLEI
despite the facts present-
ed. Climategate now
proves that we taxpayers
have been the victims of
a massive criminal fraud.
Will you still support our
ICLEI now, Sue?
Shouldn't we at least
consider taking a second
look before we commit
to destroying our way of
life? Politicians on both
sides of the isle are selling
us out. The only conclu-
sion one can reach is that
this is part of a methodi-
cal plan.
Some know that they
are doing this for the
cause of world govern-
ment, and others are just
following the crows. Ei-
ther way they are spend-
ing trillions and are help-
ing to bring about global
government. The public
be damned.

comprehensive plan.
Her explanation of the
barriers and lack of spe-
cific locations in the plan
make either low-income
housing or work force
housing impossible to
attain.
They expect her to use
her skills and political
influence to ram the
comp plan down the
throats of the Depart-

Successful or not, the
Venice taxpayers do not
deserve another large,
unnecessary attorney fee

Agenda goes
back to arrival
Editor:
About six years ago I
received a call from a
woman who said she was
part of a new neighbor-
hood coalition that want-
ed some information
concerning Venice air-
port operations.
She said she contacted
me because she knew I
hangared and flew out of
Venice airport.
I agreed to attend a
neighborhood meeting
she had organized to pro-
vide as much informa-
tion as I could from a
pilot's perspective. When
I arrived, I noticed that
there was very little furni-
ture and decorations in
the home.
The woman apolo-
gized, stating she was just
moving down from New
England and had only
been in the home a few
weeks.
I thought it odd that
someone who had been
in the neighborhood only
a few weeks was organiz-
ing a neighborhood
meeting.
I also found it odd that
the first thing on the new


association's agenda was
the Venice airport.
A few weeks later, the
woman who had con-
tacted me, Sue Lang,
began appearing at city
hall meetings as head of
the newly formed associ-
ation and began to com-
plain about airport oper-
ations. Now a Venice City
Council member, she
continues to use her
position in an attempt to
thwart airport progress
and ongoing operations.
I believe Lang found a
home she liked not real-
izing that she would be
near the flight path for
the airport and she has
made it her personal
vendetta to have the air-
port moved, as she has
proposed many times.
Every decision she makes
regarding the airport has a
self-serving motivation.

Blame the
Democrats
Editor:
Which party messed
up Social Security?
Q: Which party took
Social Security from an
independent fund and
put it in the General
Fund so Congress could
spend it?
A: It was Lyndon
Johnson and the Demo-
cratic-controlled House
and Senate.


Q: Which party put a
tax on Social Security?
A: The Democratic
party
Q: Which party in-
creased the tax on Social
Security?
A: The Democratic
party, with Al Gore cast-
ing the deciding vote.
Q: Which party decid-
ed to give your Social
Security money to immi-
grants?
A: That's right the
Democratic party. Im-
migrants move into this
country at 65, get SSI and
have never paid a dime
into the system. It's cost-
ing us millions of dollars.
Q: Which party recent-
ly decided that the
retirees would not get a
cost-of-living increase
for the next two years?
A: The Democratic
party and President
Obama
Q: Which party is rais-
ing the cost of Medicare
for retired workers that
will be deducted from
your retirement starting
in January 2010?
A: The Democratic
party and President Oba-
ma
Then, after doing all
this, the Democrats turn
around and tell you the
Republicans want to take
your Social Security away
from you.

Murphy said.
"Everything being built around here now is deed
restricted so you cannot have your boat or motor home
in the yard," he said. "You need a place to park it."
In the 8,000-square-foot front building, his plans
are to have retail facilities for classic and high end
used cars together with accessories and part is avail-
able to lease. However storage is his priority with
sales and accessories up front being a secondary
aspect.
A privacy fence will screen it from the road and
McMurphy is working on installing a state-of-the-art
camera security system, security LED lighting with
some motion sensors. The property will be developed
targeting energy conservation initially introducing
LED lighting throughout.
"Right now I am just trying to get the whole place
cleaned up and painted," he said.
The objective is to redo everything including
upgrading the parking lot with curbing and gutters.
He is in the process of putting plans together for sub-
mission to the county and hopes to open in three to
four months.

two stabbing incidents
Wednesday morning in Venice.
According to a SCSO press
release, detectives have deter-
mined Reay went to a home in
the 3000 block of Siesta Drive,
Venice. The residents told him
to leave. About 30 minutes
later, a male living at the house
drove through the neighbor-
hood looking for Reay. He told
detectives Reay stabbed him in
the arm and back when he
pulled alongside Reay.
Reay then ran to a house in
the 3000 block of Sunset Beach
Drive. Investigators say Reay
broke into the house and con-
fronted a 39-year-old male,
who says Reay cut him with a
knife before fleeing on foot.
SCSO deputies found Reay
several blocks away and took
him into custody.
Reay, 21, of the 3000 block of
Tundra Drive, Venice, was
charged with aggravated bat-
tery, armed burglary, aggravat-
ed battery with a hate crime
enhancement for racist state-
ments he made during the
attack on one of the males who


is black.
One victim was taken to
Venice hospital for treatment.
The other did not require med-
ical attention. The investiga-
tion is ongoing.
Slugged nurse
A woman who was taken to
the Venice Regional Medical
Center emergency room, really
didn't want to be there, accord-
ing to a Venice Police Depart-
ment report.
The wom-
an refused to
be examined
by a physi-
cian. Leaving
doctors no
choice, she
was told she t
would have
to sign out of
the hospital Egoville
against med-
ical advice if she refused care.
She didn't want to do that
either.
So, she refused to sign the
paper. When a nurse tried to
help her get dressed, she


struck the nurse in the ab-
domen with her fist.
Christina Egoville, 40, of the
400 block Dorchester Drive,
Venice, was arrested and charg-
ed with battery on an emer-
gency medical care provider.
Her bond was set at $1,500.

lead to lower revenues being collected over the six
years. "(The discounts) are too small to worry about,"
Rollo said.
Other options discussed included:
$1,082 over eight years without interest.
$577 over 15 years without interest.
$2,168 over 15 years with 8-percent interest.

$1,200 over eight years with 3-percent interest.
$725 over 15 years with 3-percent interest.
$582 over 20 years with 3-percent interest.
Property owners always have the option to pay the
assessment up front. But the question arose in dis-
cussions whether the district was providing any
incentive to pay off the assessment without charging
interest.
The V-9 project is the last of the major sewer pro-
jects the district has been planning since it started on
its sewer expansion program in 1994.
Three years ago, district officials decided to hold off
on theV-9 project, partly due to the new development
and other growth Englewood was experiencing.

Cattle Barons'


Ball date set


STAFF REPORT


The fifth annual Cattle
Barons' Ball, a major
fund raiser for the Amer-
ican Cancer Society, will
be held Feb. 27 at the
Plantation Golf and
Country Club on Tami-
ami Trail.
"The Cattle Barons'
Ball is one of the most
popular and successful
fund raisers in our area,
which demonstrates how
committed we all are to
the fight against cancer,"
said Kelly Pickering, the


chair of the 2010 event.
The 2010 version will
attempt to raise more
money than last year, a
challenge Pickering rec-
ognizes as difficult in a
troubled economy.
Auction donations
must be received by the
end of the year and the
contact is Sheryl Corgan
at 941-468-4328.
The American Cancer
Society (ACS) is a nation-
wide, community-based,
voluntary health organi-
zation dedicated to elim-
inating cancer.

landmark building such as a
church with a steeple or a
courthouse with a tower that
serves as the center of devel-
opment, with shops, offices
and residences graduating
outward.
To accommodate the de-
sign, two petitions privately


initiated by Patel have to be
approved. One asks the Coun-
ty Commission for a critical
area plan amendment to the
Osprey Village Center Revital-
ization Plan. That amendment
would revise the OspreyVillage
Center Future Land Use Map
by changing the designation of


the parcel from commercial
core and medium density resi-
dential to planned mixed use.
The other petition requests
a rezone to PMI of the area.
Currently, the area has three
different zoning categories:
residential multifamily, resi-
dential single-family and com-


mercial general.
The Planning Commission
on Dec. 10 voted 5-2 to recom-
mend the amendment but
voted 4-3 to deny the rezone
petition. Commissioner John
Fellin voted against both peti-
tions. He was joined in the
amendment dissent by Com-


missioner Christopher King
and in the rezone dissent by
Commissioner Jody Hudgins
and Chair Joseph Gruters.
Commissioner Roland Pic-
cone abstained from the vote,
and Commissioner Christine
Robinson was absent.

CYBER from Page 1A


Using forensically sound
software known as ImageScan,
developed for use with the
FBI's Innocent Images pro-
gram, the fiance's computers
were searched and no evi-
dence of a crime was found.
As the scanning process was
being completed, the man
arrived home from work. He
confirmed his user name and
opening the Photobucket.com
account, but was unaware that
he had errantly uploaded child
pornography from his com-
puter, according to the report.


He did admit having sole
control over his laptop and
portable hard drive as well as
admitting to downloading,
viewing, masturbating to and
then deleting about 20 child
pornographic pictures from
his laptop. He said nothing
would be found on his laptop
other than traces of the delete
files. He also said he had never
downloaded or stored pornog-
raphy on the portable hard
drive.
The scan told a different
story.


It determined that multiple
child pornographic images
and movies were actively
stored on his laptop and more
than 500 images and movies of
child pornography were dis-
covered on his portable hard
drive. The stored images in-
cluded those photos uploaded
to Photobucket.com. The ma-
jority of the images uploaded
to Photobucket.com show
they were downloaded to the
man's computer in July, more
than a month before they were
uploaded to the public Web


site.
On Dec. 18 before the detec-
tive could finish his review of
the scanned material, the man
called and confessed that he
had several child pornograph-
ic images stored on the
portable hard drive. He told
the detective he was never
going to look at child pornog-
raphy.
The search ultimately found
multiple images and movies of
child pornography.
Detectives also found the
man had uploaded 12 images


of child pornography to a pub-
licly accessed Web site, six of
which portrayed sexual bat-
tery.
Based on the evidence,
Ryan E. Ladd, 31, of the 100
block of Patterson Ave., Osprey,
was arrested and charged with
10 counts of possession of
photographs of sexual conduct
by a child and one count of
promoting a sexual perfor-
mance by a child. Bond was set
at $12,500.
The investigation contin-
ues.

GIRLS BASKETBALL



Whelton resigns; Flynn takes over


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Switzerland called with an extraordi-
nary financial offer and Venice High's Joe
Whelton couldn't resist.
So 10 games into the season, Whelton
resigned as Venice High girls basketball
coach to take over as head coach of the
Lugano (Switzerland) Tigers, a profes-
sional men's basketball team that com-
petes in the Swiss National Basketball
League.
Whelton, who spent more than 25
years coaching in Europe, coached his
last game against Southeast on Tuesday
night then told his players.
The players exited the locker room
with tears in their eyes.
"My heart felt it," said Whelton. "Most
of the game (on Tuesday) I didn't think
about it because I was in the game and
coaching, but at certain times such as
halftime I did. It was a disappearing feel-
ing. I kind of wish the game lasted for
hours because I dreaded the end of it."
Taking over will be junior varsity and
assistant coach John Flynn.
"He's a really good friend of mine and I


am going to miss him," said Flynn. "I'm
sorry to see him go, but I understand the
situation. It was a tough deal for anybody
to turn down."
Venice's record is 5-5 on the season.
"The girls have been working hard
since June," Flynn said. "I will have the
same philosophy. We need to defend bet-
ter and get better pushing the ball up the
floor. The girls are going to adjust and the
girls are going to be fine."
Gary Emery, a volunteer assistant, will
take over as the junior varsity coach with
help from Flynn.
"John is very capable and he loves the
girls and they know him," Whelton said. "I
think he will do a wonderful job."
Whelton has spent much of his coach-
ing career in Europe, including Switzer-
land, where he met his wife, Magda.
Whelton wasn't looking to leave
Venice High, but the offer was too good
for his family.
"Obviously I don't feel so good,"
Whelton said on Wednesday afternoon.
"It was one of those life decisions.
Sometimes I wish they didn't call. ... I
have a family and two kids to worry
about. The offer was too good to pass


up."
"I am not mad at Joe," Venice athletics
director Larry Sandburg said. "He has to
do what is best for him and his family."
"I wasn't planning this," Whelton said.
"I didn't go out and seek a job. If they did-
n't call I wouldn't have been faced with
that dilemma. The biggest stumbling
block was I was part of the community
and didn't want to leave."
According to Whelton, this all started
Dec. 18 with a phone call.
"It shocked me and came out of the
blue," he said. "If I wanted to coach over-
seas all I had to do was make some calls. I
haven't talked to anyone in one and a half
years. It was so strange. I politely said no
on Friday."
Whelton said he agonized over the
decision.
"I didn't sleep well," he said. "They
were calling me and e-mailing me every
day. We had conversations over the week-
end. I called them up on Monday and
said no again. I got an e-mail with an offer
on Tuesday and it helps my family very
much."

Sarasota Crew head coach
Casey Galvanek has nothing but
praise for his young rowers,
"These three girls represent
Sarasota Crew extremely well,"
Galvanek said. "They have put in
the hard work; they have felt the
pain of training; they have felt the
pleasure in achieving their indi-
vidual and team goals and they
have kept focus with their acade-
mic workload. Keeping such a
balance has offered each athlete
a greater scope of collegiate
opportunities and these young
ladies did not hesitate to take full
advantage."

Whelton said the package includes
eight round-trip tickets for him and his
family.
"I feel sorry for the girls since they
were getting used to a system, but he
has to take care of his family first,"
Sandburg said.
Whelton's wife, Magda, and his chil-
dren, Matteo, 9, and Michelle, 5, will
continue to live in Venice.
Whelton also gave up his job as
sports director at the South County
FamilyYMCA in Venice.
"I had a great time there and a great
relationship with Pat Ryan," Whelton
said. "He was very supportive of my
decision."
The Lugano Tigers are 11-3 on the
season and according to Whelton have
about 25 games remaining including


playoffs. Their season ends in May.
"It is about halfway through the sea-
son," he said. "They are a very talented
team. The coach I know and he had
stepped aside to take another position
with the team. It was too overwhelming
for him. They needed a more profes-
sional experienced coach."
Whelton used to coach near Lugano
from 1992-96. The town is near the
Italian border.
"In town, my wife's sister and family
live there," he said. "Just 45 minutes
away are my wife's parents in Italy.

Monday at 10:30 a.m. against Palmetto

BOYS BASKETBALL
VENICE CHRISTIAN SCHOOL SPLIT GAMES:
The Venice Christian School boys varsity basket-
ball team dropped a heartbreaking 48-45 game
to Grace Christian of Brandon but came back for
a 67-33 win over West Florida Christian School
to close out the holiday break with a 6-2 record.
The first game pitted the second and third
ranked teams in the Western Division of the
Florida Christian Conference.
Grace came quick and connected on a cou-
ple of 3-pointers to take a 11-8 first-quarter
lead. The Lions won the second quarter but still
trailed 23-22 at halftime.
The rest of the game stayed close as no
team led by more than four points. Late in the
fourth quarter, VCS tied it at 45-45 only to have
Grace's leading scorer hit a 3-pointer while


being double-teamed for the game-winner.
Jack May paced the Lions with 16 points
and 16 rebounds after shooting 44 percent from
the floor and hitting 8-of-10 from the foul line.
Robert Dolby added 14 points while Cedric
Jackson chipped in with nine points and eight
rebounds.
In the final game before the Christmas
break, the Lions shot 51 percent from the field
to cruise past Sarasota's West Florida Christian
School.
Putting up his fifth double-double of the sea-
son was May with 15 points and 10 rebounds.
Philip Traub was the leading scorer with 16
points while Jackson also scored in double fig-
ures with 13 points.
In the two previous games, the Lions defeat-
ed Providence, 51-34, and Ruskin Christian
School, 61-38. May combined for 31 points and
20 rebounds in the two games. Jackson led with
a game-high 16 points.

Commission takes no action taken on beach access


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


Taking a tip from the physi-
cians' Hippocratic Oath to "do
no harm," Sarasota County
commissioners voted 5-0 earli-
er this month to take no action
regarding proposed changes to
the county code pertaining to
access along county beaches.
While the ordinance amend-
ment officially took in parks,
beaches and public lands, beach
use clearly was the subject of a
proposed ordinance that


brought about 90 county resi-
dents and their spokespeople
to county commission cham-
bers for the public hearing. Of
those attending, 18 spoke on
the issue, with most urging the
commission to leave the cur-
rent code as it is.
Commissioners, had they
decided to act, would have
addressed major code changes
such as:
Defining lawful pedestrian
beach access and prohibiting
signs or barricades that discour-
age or prevent lawful access.


Establishing provisions for
public access applicable to
areas seaward of the Gulf
Beach Setback Line and the
Barrier Island Pass 20-year
Hazard Line in county unin-
corporated areas. The GBSL
and PHL coincide with the
state Coastal Construction
Control Line, which defines
"that portion of the beach-
dune system which is subject
to severe fluctuations based on
a 100-year storm surge, storm
waves or other predictable
weather conditions."


Prohibiting physical im-
pediments (including signs,
gates, barricades, etc.) on beach-
es, and excluding those public
areas in the county where signs
could be necessary.
Prohibiting physical im-
pediments on shore-protection
structures.
The current ordinance
describes acceptable uses at
county parks, beaches and other
public lands. The ordinance
includes various items, such as
when the public areas are open,
when and where food can be


eaten, and how visitors using the
public lands have to conduct
themselves, such as no smoking.
Commissioner Shannon
Staub said she expects leaders in
local condominium and home-
owner associations to look at 17
prohibitory regulations and de-
cide which ones apply to public
beaches and which to private
beaches. She also said the com-
mission may take up the current
ordinance next year to see if the
language can be made clearer.

Paws a good veteran cause

BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
A group of local veterans and members of various fraternal organizations came together recently to help their
fellow military men and women.
They pulled their resources together to help blind veterans secure a guide dog, something the federal govern-
ment doesn't do.
According to Joan Douglass, public relations chair of the local Paws For Patriots program, the only things the
federal veterans agency pays for related to guide dogs are replacement harnesses and veterinarian visits.
She has a letter fromWallace Hopkins, director of the Veterans Administration Healthcare System in Bay Pines,
Fla., which was written to state Rep. Vern Buchanan. The letter was in response to Douglass's inquiry about
what the VA does for blind veterans.
Hopkins said "according to the VHA Handbook 1173.55 on Aids to the Blind, the VA authorizes vet-
erinary treatment and harness repairs."
Jodi Teper, coordinator of the visually impaired service team for the Veterans Benefits Administration
in Bay Pines, Fla., said the VA does not pay for guide dogs for blind veterans but does offer veterinarian care
and harness repairs.
"I think we need to get these government agencies to provide guide dogs to these blind veterans,"
Douglass said.

Esprit de corps
The desire to help blind veterans secure a guide dog reflects the spirit de corps ingrained
during a soldier's military career.

FROM SARASOTA MEMORIAL

clubs and fraternal orga-
nizations.
Since January, fund-
raising has been done by
about 14 fraternal orga-
nizations, women's auxil-
iaries and individuals in
the Venice, Nokomis and
Englewood area. The list
includes the Veterans of
Foreign Wars, American
Legion, Disabled Ameri-
can Veterans, Fraternal
Order of Eagles, Marine
Corps League and Loyal
Order of Moose.
The local groups can-
not be officially named
Paws For Patriots, but so
far the term helps peo-
ple identify with SEGD's
program.
"We meet once a
month as Paws For
Patriots at different orga-
nizations," Mowat said.
In November, they
met at the VFW in Engle-
wood; the January meet-
ing is scheduled for the
Disabled American Vet-
erans in Nokomis.
Frank Keenan, a mem-
ber of the Loyal Order of
the Moose, said the
Moose donated $3,500
out of a charitable fund to
"hopefully, help start
with another dog."
William Birk, lodge
administrator, said the
Moose has a community
giving chair who looks
for ways to give $40,000
a year to community
service.
"We have given to
places like St. Jude's, and
we give especially to
those veterans who have
given up their service. We
can do the same," he said.

in the Army during Viet-
nam in the 1960s and
sprayed chemicals from
a helicopter. He became
legally blind not total-
ly blind in 1993. He
can still see some forms
but cannot see the "E"
on an eye chart while
wearing glasses.
"Totally blind people
are in total darkness, and
I can still see forms," he
said.
Goodwillie attended
the Nov. 18 VFW meeting
in Englewood, accompa-
nied by his wife, Bev, and
Penny, his guide dog. He
received Penny, a golden
retriever, from SEGD
through the Brooksville,
Fla., Lions Club. The
Lions Club raised the
money to name the dog
in its Pennies for Penny
campaign.
Penny goes every-
where Goodwillie goes -
church, restaurants, on
airplanes and shopping.
If he gets separated from


his wife while shopping,
he just tells Penny to
"find Bev," and Penny
walks him up and down
aisles until the two are
reunited. While Penny is
not trained to protect
him, he thinks she would
if he were in danger.
"Once, when walking
on Venice Avenue, and
there was a lot of traffic, I
reached a dead end. I
didn't see any cars, but
she stopped me. There
was a car, and I thought,
'Oh, good dog,"'" Good-
willie said. "With a dog,
everything is very posi-
tive."
Bev said Penny gives
her husband the inde-
pendence and freedom
he did not have prior to
getting her.
"The reception to
Penny by others is 95
percent, which is a large
number of people com-
pared with how people
react to a person with a
white cane," she said.

"She is a godsend. It
makes me feel good to
know that he is safe with
Penny and can do things
independently. She is a
friend and companion."
Puppy adoption
Initial sponsorship of
a guide dog now costs
$3,500, which includes
naming the puppy,
according to Patsy French,
director of development
for SEGD. The initial cost
went up after a financial
assessment. In total, it
costs about $60,000 to
fully raise a dog to serve
a blind veteran. Involved
local fraternal organiza-
tions intend to continue
giving to the cause.
According to a SEGD
fact sheet, SEGD has 140
active graduates who are


veterans, and it antici-
pates that over the next
five years, thousands of
military men and women
will lose their sight.
Service life
Because a guide dog
works hard to focus its
undivided attention on
its blind master, it will
probably only be in ser-
vice a total of 10 years,
French said. It takes
about two years to train
a dog from when it is a
puppy; its work is rigor-
ous for about eight years
of service.
'Also, its facilities can
begin to dampen," French
said. "I think of one dog
in particular that started
getting hard of hearing.
A guide dog must be
focused at all times."


When it's time for a
new guide dog, the
owner may opt to keep
the retired dog as a pet.
Or the dog can go to
another owner.
Or and this is good
for the person who ini-
tially bonded with the
dog the retired dog
can go back to the puppy
raiser.

SCOLIOSIS IN CHILDREN
DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI problems affecting the spinal column and the


CHIROPRACTORI-i- I u-
In your concern for your child's health
and well being, you want to make sure your
child is not "growing the wrong way."
Scoliosis or curvature of the spine is an
example of this hazard. Through poor posture
habits or other causes, the unnatural curving
of the spine may lead to straining of muscles
and ligaments or the crowding of internal
organs and impaired circulation.
Your doctor of chiropractic is a specialist
in body mechanics and in particular of


body's nervous system. Abnormal curvature
and other spinal problems that begin to
appear in childhood and adolescence, such as
chronic back pain, often lead to more serious
problems in adulthood. That's one reason
why regular checkups are recommended by
your doctor of chiropractic.
If you think your child may have a
posture problem that needs correcting, make
an appointment for examination and
treatment.

Cruise lines entice fans with music



from Kid Rock to Christian


BY ELLEN CREAGER
DETROIT FREE PRESS

Scrreeeeech!
For your listening pleasure,
the soundtrack aboard
Carnival Destiny next May will
be industrial-metal rock.
It's courtesy of the
Genitorturers, stars of the five-
night Devils & Dolls Cruise
from Miami on May 8.
"Interaction with fans will
be on a daily basis. One just
might end up in the pool with
the Genitorturers," says cruise
promoter Zaida Brown of All
Genre Travel in Hilliard, Ohio.
But that's not all.
In the next few months, Kid
Rock and his rowdy legions
will set sail on Carnival
Inspiration. Gospel will boom
to the heavens on Norwegian
Sky. Bluegrass will twang on
Oasis of the Seas. New Kids on
the Block will croon on
Carnival Imagination. Smooth
jazz will soothe on Holland
America Noordam.
What kind of music goes
with cruising?
All kinds.
"The fact that album sales
aren't what they used to be
means that bands and pro-
moters are looking for differ-
ent ways for the bands and
fans to connect," said Cherie
Weinstein, vice president of
group business development
for Carnival Cruise Lines.
She sees bigger and bigger
acts willing to set sail with
fans.
Kristen Gregory of Ann
Arbor, Mich., has been on a
trio of cruises since 2007 fea-
turing the group Barenaked
Ladies.
"Even with BNL headlining
all three cruises, there were
tons of different bands on
board and concerts running
all day and all night," said
Gregory, 30. "The great perk of
music cruises is discovering
new bands that I like."
The only downside?
"I was exhausted when I
got back."
Irish. Jam band. Blues.
Bluegrass. Goth. Rock. Pop.
Classical. Urban gospel. Jazz.
Christian. Gay country-west-
ern.
Even fish in the sea have to
feel the beat with all the music
pulsing above.
Most music cruises last
four to five days and sail the
Caribbean.
The biggest take up a whole
ship. For instance, the sold-
out Kid Rock cruise April 29 is
organized by Sixthman, an
Atlanta company that special-
izes in chartering ships and
turning them into floating
music festivals. Besides the
crew, everyone aboard is in a
band or is a fan.
Next year's Smooth Jazz
Cruise and K-Love and
Friends Christian Cruise will
be whole-ship cruises too.
"What chartering the ship
does is give the promoter
more freedom," Weinstein
says. "They're not promoting a


SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL
Above, Carnival's Fascination offers balconies with many of its state-
rooms. Below, the stern of Carnival's Fascination rises far above the
dock.


Carnival cruise per se, and
you're not having the issue
where half or 75 percent of the
passengers are saying, 'Boy, I
don't like this kind of music.'"
(How much does it cost to
rent a cruise ship for five days?
Cruise industry analyst
Steward Chiron says it could
be nearly $1 million paid
up front, nonrefundable.)
For big acts, it is simply
easier to take over the whole
ship, says Andy Levine, CEO
and owner of Sixthman.
"The difference between
doing a half-ship and whole-
ship charter is a difference
between doing a party with
your parents in town or par-
ents out of town," he said.
However, other music
cruise promoters book only a
few hundred or so cabins on a
larger ship.
On the Genitorturers
cruise, regular passengers will
be aboard the Destiny -
although they're not invited to
the private concerts and par-
ties. Ditto with an Irish music
cruise coming up in January
on the Holland America
Noordam.
Smaller is better, said
Debbie Casey, owner of Irish
Music Cruises in South


Dartmouth, Mass.
"The smaller the group, the
more one-on-one time fans
can have with the musicians,"
she said.
Her cruise will take up only
200 spaces on the 1,900-pas-
senger Noordam from Jan. 24
to Feb. 3. Fans will see private
performances by 10 acts, plus
have time to interact and even
jam with musicians and
have regular ship activities
available as well.
For musicians, there are
pros and cons to both
arrangements.
"The people on the big
cruises are the super-fans. The
more you get face time with
them, the more they'll tell
their friends about you," said
Brian Duffy, a bass player
from Duluth, Ga. He has
played on four Christian
cruises for top performers like
Aaron Shust and Brandon
Heath. "The bad thing is, you
have no escape except to hide
in your room," he said. "'A lot
of the fans are really cool, but
a lot come up at dinner or ask
for autographs or pictures."
Musicians can relax more
on cruises that have non fans
aboard, he said, because they
"give musicians more


anonymity, so it feels more
like a vacation."
Because cruising tends to
attract people in their 40s and
50s, music cruises can bring in
a demographic that normally
stays away from the sea the
thirtysomething and even
twentysomethings. That thrills
promoters, the cruise lines
and fans themselves.
Meeting other Barenaked
Ladies fans close to her age
created an instant bond,
Gregory said. She stays in
touch with many of them.
"Making friends," she said,
"has made my cruises seem
more like going to summer
camp than going on vacation
as an anonymous tourist."
Cruises in every beat
All of these music cruises
are in 2010 in the Caribbean
except as noted. Most last
three to seven days. Most cost
$700 to $1,500 per person.

You bet your astrology

We still don't know exactly what con-
duct Tiger Woods felt compelled to
apologize for, but at least we now know
why he cheated: The stars made him do
it.
We got an e-mail a couple of weeks
ago, before he actually confessed to
infidelity, stating that "Tiger Woods was
astrologicallyy' destined to cheat."
According to self-styled "celebrity as-
trologers" (are they astrologers who
chart celebrities or celebrities them-
selves?) Lisa Sydney and Angelo
Merlino, Tiger Wood's planets created a
"'perfect storm' for marital discord."
Right.
I have a lot of problems with the
pseudo-science of astrology: How can
the arrangement of distant stars when I
was born possibly have any influence
over my life? If they can, wouldn't they
have exactly the same influence over
everyone who shares my birthday
(which is really close to Tiger's)? How is
there any science in something that is
really nothing more than the "skill" of
the stargazer? How do they have the
guts to charge people for this "service"?
But my biggest problem is the whole
"our stars are our destiny" thing.
I'm a literal kind of guy, so to me
"destiny" means what is going to hap-
pen, not what might. On the one hand,
saying that Tiger was destined to fool
around makes it sound like it's not his
fault that he did, when it most assured-
ly is. His wife isn't going to excuse Tiger
for being a pig just because some

On the other hand, though, destiny

his Web site, randi.org, claims have in-

He has never had to pay up.

FAITH, VALUES AND LESSONS


What I learned since fifth grade

BY N. OZICK
AS PUBLISHED IN WWW.CHABAD.ORG


Pilgrimage visits Jesus' birthplace


It's winter-time. I am 10
years old. My new school
supplies aren't new any-
more. My backpack has
footprints on it, and frayed
papers stick every which way
out of my binder. Cold winds
twist and wail outside the
classroom window. It's dark by
the time I get home from
school.
I have too much homework.
I can't even start.
My papers are too messy. I
can't even look.
Suddenly, it's Sunday after-
noon, everything is due tomor-
row morning, and there is no
longer any escape.
I know! I'll convince my par-
ents to home-school me ...
Hard as it was for me to
foresee this when I was 10
years old, I eventually grew up.
I know this is true because I no
longer calculate the possibility
of getting a Slurpee every time
I pass a 7-Eleven. What a
betrayal of my child self! I can
feel her looking at me with dis-
dain.
I want to reassure her: I
LIKE being an adult. It isn't
boring, really! I LIKE green tea
and dense, nonfiction books. I
don't LIKE Slurpees.
And yet, there are times ...
I work at home as an editor,
and I frequently find myself
faced with to-do lists like this:
Proofread these 50 pages of
fine print. Turn this crazed rant
into a reasonable sounding
article. Scour this nine-page
PDF and type up a list of mis-
takes. Do it all before the dead-
line, which is in 14 minutes.
I spend hours chained to
my computer, in a mixed state
of anxiety and elated accom-
plishment. There are the times
when I work efficiently and the
world falls away. I am a verbal
gymnast, bursting with job sat-
isfaction.
And then there are times


when I feel exactly like I'm
back in the winter of fifth
grade, facing a mountain of
homework which I CANNOT
do.
So I resort to fifth-grade
behavior. I procrastinate. Only
this time around, I am way
more sophisticated. These are
some of my best procrastina-
tion strategies:
Strategy No. 1: Check e-mail
before working. This is brilliant
because nobody can tell the
difference between e-mailing
and working, not even me. In
18th-century literature, writing
letters is all women did, and
here I am, getting at it first
thing in the morning.
Strategy No. 2: Keep a finely
tuned antenna out for emer-
gencies. They do seem to crop
up, the minute the real work
rears its ugly head. The vague
plan that I dreamed up last
week, to go to Trader Joe's and
get free pancake mix, wasn't an
emergency then. Suddenly,
today, with deadlines looming,
I sense the need to go right
now.
Strategy No. 3: Use more
than one e-mail address. This
way, strategy No. 1 can be
employed more than once.
And after checking my sec-
ondary e-mail address, I can go
back and check my primary
one.
Strategy No. 4: Empty all the
wastebaskets in the house.
Sometimes, they are already
empty. Still, I check, whistling
tunelessly as I flit hither and
thither. (How can concentrate
on real work when the waste-
baskets are full?) I am like a
really efficient butterfly.
Strategy No. 5: See No. 3.
Actually, I have more than two
e-mail addresses. I have about
five. I check my e-mail the way
other people play piano.

PHOTO COURTESY OF FATHER VINCENT SHEEHY
Pilgrims, led by Father Vincent Sheehy, retired pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes Church of Venice, pray
the way of the Stations of the Cross on the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem. In Bethlehem, Sheehy and pil-
grims waited more than an hour to view the crypt at the Basilica of the Nativity of Christ, the authentic
site of the birthplace of Jesus. The pilgrimage also visited Nazareth, Cana, Capernaum, Tiberias, Sea of
Galilee, Jordan River, Bethlehem, the Dead Sea, Cairo, Egypt, and Petra in Jordan.

LEARNEDfrom Page8B

Strategy No. 6: Do OTHER
work. Any other work, as long
as it is not the work that I am
busy not doing. I employed
this strategy yesterday. I com-
pleted a task a week early that
I usually complete, with gen-
uine regret, only at the very
last minute. My productivity
earned me this e-mail back
from my overling.
Overling: Are you feeling
OK?
Me: You don't understand.
There is something else I have
to do, and it is MUCH, MUCH


harder. I am procrastinating
productively.
Overling: Oh, you have no
idea how much I understand!
That EXACTLY describes my
way of working!
Me: Oh, great! I'll start a
Facebook group. It's clearly
necessary. I'll do it right now.
I am truly a master. I look
exactly like a person who is
getting important things done.
Sometimes, especially when
it's late in the day and I have
been rearranging wastebaskets
for hours, I stop and think, "On


second thought, editing isn't
such a good profession for me.
I think essentially I am built to
do something active. Maybe I
should take up dog walking?"
Wow. I really AM a master. I
have written 933 words with-
out getting to the point.
The point is, I have discov-
ered that there IS something I
can do to melt the pit in my
stomach and bypass procrasti-
nation. It may not require
interacting with dogs (I forgot;
I have a dog phobia), but it
does require courage:


Start.
Start small, but start.
Just take the first step. It
really works.
"Just open your binder," I
can imagine myself telling my
fifth-grade self, feeling like the
confident and soothing adult
that I really am. "Look at your
papers. Put them in order. It will
get easier after that, I promise."
And to my adult self, I say.
"Open the document. Spend
20 minutes on it. Now open
THAT document, and start
that one too." Before I know it,


the enormous pile of work in
front of me is separating itself
into manageable, human-size
portions.
I am not expected to stage a
flashy revolution. There is no
need to find a new job, or a
new life. I just need to do
something, right now. There is
only one question to answer:
What small step in the right
direction can I take right now?
On Chanukah, we start with
just one light. That is all that
is expected of us. Tomorrow,
there will be two.

Charlotte County residents and their show cars


The above title is
certainly fitting for
Ken and Barbara
Alflen of Port Charlotte, as
well as homeowners in
Traverse City, Mich. This
gracious couple have a
total of six '50s-era
automobiles, two of which
have been national prize
winners. The 1949
Cadillac convertible in the
photo was awarded 100
points at an AACA
national show held at
Savannah, Ga., in 2007, as
well as best of show
during the National
Cadillac/LaSalle event in
Wilmington, Del.
Opposite it is their 1955 El
Dorado convertible,
which has a full, but not
off-the-frame restoration
and has not yet been
registered to be in
competition.
But back in a large
garage and workshop
building sits a stunning
turquoise-and-white 1957
Corvette. It has the
distinction of getting 98.5
points at the NCRS Show
in Kissimmee, Fla., as well
as garnering 98.4 at the
most prestigious Vette
show in the country,
known as the
Bloomington, located in
Illinois. Said Corvette has
the rare 220-horsepower
engine, among other
features. Those two are
Ken's present big prize
winners, however since
1978, when he first started
collecting, his 1971
Corvette Lt 1 turned out to
win grand prize status.
From then until now,
there have been 30
vehicles, some that were
winners too.
Now a little older, the
Alflens have elected to
have just a few cars in the
era that they both like the
best, the '50s! A beautifully
restored cocoa brown,
metallic colored 1956
Lincoln Continental Series


II has been with them
since 1985. This timeless
designed hardtop was
Ford Motor Co.'s semi-
hand-built, very top-of-
the-line special vehicle to
compete with the Cadillac
El Dorado Biarritz. They
were manufactured only
two years, 1956 to 1957,
ceasing production when
the mass-produced
massive 1958
Continentals arrived.
Theirs is one of only
1,325 made in 1956, and
carried an original price
tag of $10,000, a lot of
money back then;
however, they came fully
equipped with only one
option, air conditioning,
for $740 more.
I seem to remember
Lincoln dealers were
not arranging any
financing for this model.
Buyers either paid cash or
got a loan from private
collections.
The system let people
know owners had
"arrived" when motoring
about in this distinct
automobile. Mr. and Mrs.
Alflen told me it's been
their favorite, not for snob
appeal but for the design
quality of everything from
the Scottish leather
interior, the instrument
panel, the great steady
ride and almost silence
once under way.
A very rare, (production
only 304) 1958 Cadillac
series 70 El Dorado
Brougham, suicide-type
four-door pillarless sedan
is presently being totally
restored. The body is off
the frame, which has been
fully refinished and


SUN PHOTOS BY LEE ROYSTON


literally dozens and
dozens of pieces and parts
are in various stages of
getting renewed.
Sometime in 2011,
everything should be
completed, including a
deep black paint job.
Nothing is going to be
spared to make it
outstanding and hopefully
a national award winner
in the future.
Another 1958 Cadillac,
presently a driver, is his El
Dorado Biarritz convert-
ible, awaiting its turn to be
fully made over as the day
this beauty left the
assembly line. Production
totaled only 815 for the
year. It weighs slightly over
5,000 pounds and, when
sold new, the base price
was $7,500. A quick
comparison here, 1957
and 1958 Ford convert-
ibles retail prices were in
the $2,500 to $2,700 range.
That alone was enough to
make working people look
up to those who were
driving big, fancy
Cadillacs!
Specification of the
1949 Cadillac are as
follows: wheelbase 126
inches; weight 4,218
pounds; price $3,442
(base); production 8,000;
engine, V8, 331-cubic-inch
OHV; 160 horsepower.
Specifications for the
1955 Cadillac: wheelbase
129 inches; weight 4,809
pounds; price $6,286;
production 3,950; engine
V8, 331-cubic-inch OHV;
developing 270 horse-
power with two carbs -
which the pictured car
has.
Enough about the cars.
Each of my columns also


feature the people who
own them, and this
Christmas Day article will
be no exception. Going
back to when Ken was a
young man in college, he
was employed on the
Pontiac assembly line.
After graduating, he went
to work for the Chrysler
Corp., then on to become
a builder/developer of 10
large commercial court-
yard-style complexes.
Later, he was owner/oper-
ator of nine assisted-living
facilities. Presently in the
process of scaling down,
they have just two of the
latter left. The major
portion of the residents
have Alzheimer's and
require much care, special
employees and lots of
love. Ken is very proud of
the way his staff does its
best to serve the residents.
Lee and I are very happy
and proud to have met
the Alflens and produce
this particular column.
Upon arrival at their front
door, we were made to
feel at home. This
twosome cooperated fully
with Lee during the photo
session and cheerfully
provided me with most of
the text that you are
reading. We also enjoyed
some oven fresh holiday
cookies Barbara was in
the process of baking. If all
goes as planned, they will
be attending the
upcoming Sun Papers
Mid-Winter Car Show and
Open House Feb. 13, 2010.
I can assure you whatever
car they bring will be a
nice one.
