City to float 'B' plan before FAA


Hybrid "solution" emerges.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Venice City Council came a
step closer Thursday after-
noon to making a formal
request to the Federal Aviation
Administration to downgrade
Venice Municipal Airport to a
"B-II." The airport reference
code is based on the size and
speed of aircraft.
Taking the lead for the city is
DY Consultants. They will take
the preliminary recommenda-
tion to the FAA hopefully on
Monday, said Project Manager


Lisa Mastropieri at a Thursday
airport workshop.
"I would like a 'B' but am
not willing to throw the city on
a sword," wrote Mayor Ed
Martin this week on his private
Web site. "If we can convince
the FAA that granting a 'B'
would be much less expensive
than meeting the more exten-
sive 'C' requirements for
example, having to redesign
and rebuild considerable por-
tions of the golf course and/or
lose its revenues for the airport
- that would be great. So far
the FAA has not even been


willing to discuss it."
"The city council asked DY
to discuss two alternatives
with the FAA in the next week,
if possible. The recommenda-
tions, backed by data, provide
council the strongest support
to date for its decision to get
additional professional input
on developing an airport plan
that meets the city's and the
FAA's needs," said Martin.
"Enough to say that I will
not support going to war with
the FAA. I want to solve the
problem, peacefully. I think it
can be done."
Proponents believe a "B-II"

Doctors alert to 'Generation Rx'


BY JOSH SALMAN
STAFF WRITER

Regional doctors know
the story of Clyde Stout.
They see it all too often.
The 35-year-old Venice
resident has been visiting
hospitals across Southwest
Florida for the past several
months, trying to get pain
medications, according to
the Charlotte County Sher-
iff's Office.
Stout reportedly gives a
bogus name and date of
birth, and his story is always
similar a setback from a
surgery to his left knee. His
most recent attempt at Faw-
cett Memorial Hospital in
Port Charlotte ended in
handcuffs, when he was rec-
ognized by a nurse, reports
state.
"We see it happen a lot,"
said Bob Carpenter, spokes-
man for the sheriff's office.
"The same suspects just
keep coming back."
As "Generation Rx"
emerges, the drug of choice
has become deadly synthet-
ic opiates like Vicodin and
OxyContin. And as street de-
mand for these drugs con-
tinues to grow, so do the
challenges for regional med-
ical centers.
One in five teenagers has
abused prescription med-
ication to get high, while 61
percent said prescription
drugs are easier to get than
illegal drugs, according to a
study by the Partnership for
a Drug-Free America.
Most either steal the med-
ication from relatives or
obtain an unnecessary pre-

lenges posed to area medical centers.


scription, the study shows.
But identifying these drug
seekers isn't always easy.
Red flag
Carpenter said it's difficult
to prove a patient is faking
an illness for a prescription.
Often a patient really has a
hidden injury, or a drug
addict is in true need of care,
he said.
When in doubt, he tells
health care workers to just
send them home with a
handful of aspirin.
"People who are addicted
to hard drugs will do just
about anything," Carpenter
said. "You can't put anything


past them."
With emergency rooms in
Sarasota and North Port,
Sarasota Memorial Hospital
uses an internal computer
system to track each prescrip-
tion written by an ER doctor.
While the system originally
was designed to help alert
doctors to a patient's allergies
and medical history, it also
goes a long way toward pin-
pointing drug abusers, said
Bill Colgate, medical director
of emergency services.
Colgate said the rise of
prescription drug seekers is
the biggest problem he's

H1N1 vaccine



available for



older students


BY ANNE
KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER


The Sarasota County Health
Department announced Thurs-
day that H1N1 vaccinations
will be available this week not
only to elementary school-age
children, but also to those in
middle and high school and
children as young as 6 months.
The decision to open the
second round of clinics to a
wider age range was based on
the availability of swine flu
vaccine.
"The turnout last week was


a bit lower than we had vac-
cine available for, and we had
some left over," said Dianne
Shipley, health educator and
media liaison for the health
department. "And we continue
to get supplies of the vaccine in
this week."
Before the first round of in-
school clinics for elementary
and pre-K students was held
last week, Chuck Henry, inci-
dent commander for the
county's HIN1 vaccination
response, said vaccinations for
middle and high school stu-

Denny's to make



debut in December


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Next month the "Grand
Slam" returns to Venice after a
two-year hiatus with the open-
ing of the new Venice Denny's
Restaurant, 1763 South Tami-
ami Trail, near Lowe's Super-
store.
On the opening day, yet to
be determined, at 7 a.m. the
first 100 customers will receive
a Denny's deck of cards enti-
tling them to a free Grand Slam
each week for a whole year.


Refurbishment of the facili-
ty, the former Mel's Diner, is
expected to be completed in
time for the opening during
the first or second week of
December, according to Vic
Cuda, chief operating officer
for RREMC Restaurants of
West Palm Beach.
Designed in the new Den-
ny's slim Sunrise format, the
refurbishment will cost more
than $300,000, not including
the real estate.

Outgoing council members reflect on their successes and failures


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


We asked outgoing council
members John Simmonds and
Vicki Noren Taylor to list the
biggest accomplishments dur-
ing their terms, three things
they're disappointed by and
what advice they have for their
replacements, sworn in on
Thursday.
Simmonds, a three-term
council member, and Noren
Taylor, who served two terms,
had similar responses. Both
listed capital projects among
the highlights, and the Sun-
shine lawsuit as the low point.


Simmonds' list
"The most significant ac-
complishments were the phys-
ical ones, the capital projects
done by (Assistant City
Manager) Nancy Woodley. The
bond that passed in 2003
resulted in beach renourish-
ment and money for the next


one, the civic center and the
fact it was redone to be state of
the art, and the rebuilding of
the Venice Municipal Pier.
'Also up there was the com-
pletion of Runway 13-31 at
Venice Municipal Airport. It
allows a C-130 to land here in
the event we have a hurricane
and need help.
"They are significant and
lasting and something the city
will enjoy for a long, long time
- just like the (planned) per-
forming arts center at Venice
High. I've lived long enough to
see these (efforts come and
go). If it doesn't fly, the public
will look back and say, 'What
dummy stopped that?' It's one


of those things ... after the
controversy is over it will be
appreciated by everybody. I
hope it happens. If it does, they
(council) get the credit."
Disappointments
"The comprehensive plan.
I was the only one to vote
against it. By my way of think-
ing it is a disaster. I don't care if
we spend $350 per hour (on
attorney fees) to shepherd it
through. My prediction is it
will not be approved by the
Department of Community
Affairs."
"The Jet Center fiasco.
That's already cost $150,000 in
legal fees (fighting the building


of four new hangars), and
we're nowhere near settling it.
And new actors (Office of the
Inspector General) are coming
on the scene.
"My prediction: It will cost
$750,000 and we will end up
doing exactly what the Federal
Aviation Administration and
our three attorneys have said
- we have to do it (issue per-
mits for the hangars)."
"Worst-ever in the bad
stuff column was our misjudg-
ments that resulted in enor-
mous legal fees the city ended
up having to pay (over the
Sunshine lawsuit) and I don't

Rethinking water
BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER ,.
I came away from the,
recent Sustainable Communi-
ties workshop in Sarasota with a
less-than-warm and fuzzy feeling. You see,
the main topic of discussion was water.
My take on the workshop was that we use
too much water irrigating our lawns, and we
don't take the seriousness of a potential water
shortage seriously. About 50 percent of our
fresh water is used for landscape irrigation.
A citizen committee dedicated to helping
resolve the problem is working on creating a
program that would parallel the education-
al approach that was done with compact
fluorescent lamps. One of the first steps was
to get reduced-flow faucet aerators into the
public's hands as soon as possible.
Most aerators have a flow rate of 2.5 gpm.
If we could change that flow rate to 2.25
gpm, we would realize a 10 percent usage
reduction at each faucet head.
Another program being considered is
low-impact development for new construc-
tion. This would involve the preservation of
existing natural vegetation, reduced imper-
vious surfaces and requiring Florida-friend-
ly drought-tolerant landscaping. It was
brought up that a paradigm shift in public
attitudes toward water conservation would
be required to improve the situation.
The planet it's worth saving.

OBITUARIES
Laurance V. Peterson Jr.
Dr. Laurance (Larry) V. Peterson Jr.,
D.D.S., 77, died Monday, Nov. 9, 2009,
surrounded by his loving family: wife of
54 years Rachel (Rae Kottke); son Jeffrey
of Vancouver, Wash.;
daughter Laura of Seattle,
Wash.; daughter Paige of
Minneapolis, Minn.; and
daughter Holly of St.
Petersburg, Fla. Other sur-
vivors include daughter-in-
law Efftalia Sentouktsi
(Jeff), and son-in-law Rick
Peterson Smith (Holly).
Born April 29, 1932, in
Mabel, Minn., to Laurance Peter-
>- son Sr., D.D.S., andViolet (Hellick-
son), Larry had three brothers,
now deceased. Graduating from
Mabel High School, he was awarded
attendance at the 1950 national Boy
Scout Jamboree, traveling by train to
Valley Forge, Pa. He received his doctor
of dental surgery degree in 1956 from the
University of Minnesota. Larry enlisted
in the U.S. Air Force and served as a den-
tist at the Strategic Air Command Base in
Del Rio, Texas.
Fulfilling a dream, Larry and Rae built
their home in the woods on Spirit Lake in
Aitkin, Minn. Larry always called the drive
home to their private "Brigadoon," a good
unwind. He loved sailing their O'Day, fish-
ing and gardening, and was endlessly
pulling water skiers, making ice rinks,
chopping wood and plowing snow. He led
many an adventure in all seasons to other
lakes on foot, by boat and snowmobile.
The cold led the family, O'Day in tow, to
a home near the beach in Venice, Fla. He
cared for his patients at his office there
from 1974 to 2001. A voracious reader,
Larry was interested in everything, espe-
cially travel and history. He was an end-
lessly loving and patient husband and
father, remarkably kind and sweet. His wry
sense of humor will always make us smile.
Services: A celebration of his life will be
private and held at a later time. Farley
Funeral Home, Venice, is handling the
arrangements. Friends may sign the guest-
book at www.farleyfuneralhome.com.
Contributions: In lieu of flowers donations
may be made in his memory to TideWell
Hospice, 220 Wexford Blvd, Venice, FL

First caisson funeral held at Sarasota National Cemetery


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


For years, Van and Irene Eitel
attended funerals at Arlington
National Cemetery in Virginia
whenever possible.
They were "beautiful burials,"
Irene remembered Tuesday.
Van, a Korean War veteran, died
Nov. 25, 2008, at age 78, and Irene
learned soon thereafter that the
new Sarasota National Cemetery,
which was due to open in January
2009, would play host to caisson
funerals.
So Irene waited for almost 12
months to bury her husband of 28
years with a caisson ceremony on
Tuesday, the first at the cemetery.
Van was buried Tuesday in a cere-
mony that brought tears to the eyes
of the many present. There, behind
the horse-drawn caisson, was Irene.
Just the day before, the Cape Coral
woman and her daughter, Mary
McKay, practiced walking the dis-
tance behind the wagon.
An Air Force honor guard
removed the casket from the cais-
son, while an Army honor guard
stood by and, later, fired a rifle
salute. A sailor stood apart from the
ceremony and when the time
arrived, played taps for the former
Air Force pilot.
Irene, 82, received the folded U.S.
flag, handed it to her daughter and
then walked over to the silver casket
for a final moment with her late hus-
band.
"It is quite an honor," she said
before the caisson ceremony. "If he
were here, he would have been in his
glory."
The caisson funeral is not provid-
ed by Sarasota National Cemetery.
It is outsourced to two local com-
panies.
Tuesday's caisson ceremony, the
brainchild of Karin A. McMurtrie of
Hawk's Flight Farm in Sarasota, was
more than a year in the planning,
she said.

SUN PHOTO BY CAROL SAKOWITZ, csakowitz@sun-herald.com
Irene Eitel, 82, center, walks behind the horse-drawn caisson carrying the body of her late
husband, Van, Tuesday during the first caisson funeral conducted at the new Sarasota
National Cemetery. Van Eitel, a Korean War veteran, died Nov. 25, 2008.


The two-part, World War I-era vehi-
cle a limber in front and the casket-
carrying caisson in back was hand-
made by Joe Tetz of Pennsylvania. It is a
duplicate of the caisson used at
Arlington and Fort Sam Houston
national cemeteries.
The wheels were handmade in Ohio,
McMurtrie said.
Her staff, including her son Matt
Orze, went to Arlington for a week to
train, learning such fine points as how
to salute appropriately and how to
work as a team.


The caisson ceremony by Hawk's
Flight Farm costs $650. Extras such as
bagpipers are an additional cost.
McMurtrie said the caisson cere-
monies at national cemeteries such as
Arlington are offered only to those with
a government level of E-9 or higher. At
Sarasota National Cemetery, however,
any veteran can have the service.
Tuesday, the first veteran to be so
honored was, according to McKay,
"quite an honorable man."

Strategic plan released
Sarasota County Sheriff
Tom Knight has released a
strategic plan for his agency.
It's the first strategic plan
drafted in the agency's 88-
year history.
Knight began his adminis-
tration with an extensive man-
agement review and a number
of organizational enhance-
ments. During that time, he
identified the need for a com-
prehensive strategic plan to
provide direction and focus for
the agency.
A citizen advisory group, an
in-house advisory group made
up of 24 staff members were
involved in the process. The
command staff served as the
governing body for the plan.
"Our strategic plan epito-
mizes problem solving
through community and law
enforcement partnerships,"
Knight said. "I am grateful for
the enthusiasm and dedica-
tion of everyone who partici-
pated in this process, and I
encourage all citizens to
review the objectives that
now chart our course and
hold us accountable for their
accomplishments."
The strategic plan is online
at www.sarasotasheriff.org.
Medication
abusers beware
Lethal doses of legal drugs
are taking the lives of Sarasota
County citizens. Sarasota
County Sheriff Tom Knight
wants to change that.
The Pharmaceutical
Diversion Investigative
Unit has been created to
crack down on prescrip-
tion fraud, reduce doc-
tor-shopping and mini-
mize the number of peo-
ple who are overdosing
on potent pain medica-
tions and other pharma-
ceutical drugs.
Doctor- shopping refers
to people who seek med-
ical care from several
doctors, usually simulta-
neously, without inform-
ing each of the doctors of
the other's role in their
medical care. Most often
this is done by people
who are addicted or
dependent on certain
prescription drugs.
Sheriff's deputies have
responded to 32 acciden-
tal deaths so far this year
in which pharmaceuti-
cal drugs are believed to
be a contributing cause.
According to state statis-
tics, Sarasota County has
twice the state average of
fatal overdoses.
"The problem is
affecting all of our citi-
zens," Knight said. "It
does not discriminate
based on socioeconom-
ic status, age or race."
Knight said Sarasota

STAFF REPORT

It doesn't take a rocket
scientist to figure out
we're living in tough eco-
nomic times. The state of
the economy is on televi-
sion stations and in
newspapers almost on a
daily basis.
Instead of bemoan-
ing the economy, the
Venice Gondolier Sun,
wants to help you do
something about it.
We would like to
hear from all nonprofit
organizations that are
collecting gifts, food or
money to help local
families in need have a
better holiday season.
We will publish your
wish list in the Gondolier
Sun. Our readers will then
have the opportunity to
help your organization
give local families in need
a memorable Christmas


despite the economy.
E-mail your wish list to
bbrown@venice

County cannot be a communi-
ty in denial.
"The men and women of
this office who see the devas-
tating effects of this problem
every day won't stand for it."
The PDI Unit will focus
on education, enforcement,
partnerships with physicians,
pharmacists, community
groups and rehabilitation pro-
fessionals and the appropri-
ate disposal of medications
that are no longer needed.
The sheriff's office is hold-
ing Operation Medicine
Cabinet Saturday from 10 a.m.
to 2 p.m. at six locations
throughout Sarasota County.
The turn-in event allows citi-
zens to safely dispose of
unused or expired medica-
tions and keep them out of the
wrong hands.
The Venice turn-in location
isWalgreens Pharmacy, 1405 E.
Venice Ave., at the corner of
Pinebrook Road and East
Venice Avenue.
Dispute with father
Somvert At, 27, was in a dis-
pute with his father when he
threw an 11-inch knife toward
him. The knife hit a kitchen
wall and gouged a 2-inch
chunk of drywall out of it.
Sarasota County Sheriff's
deputies photographed the
knife and the damage.
Deputies said At was agitat-
ed, refusing repeated com-
mands to sit in a chair and hes-
itating when asked if he had


any weapons on
his person, mov-
ing both his
hands toward
his pockets.
He was hand-
cuffed and a
search of his per-
At son found a
spoon with an
unknown white residue on it.
Deputies also observed needle
tracks on his inner arm; his
parents believe him to be using
drugs. Somvert's 3-year-old
nephew was present during
the attack.
At, 4000 block Blossom
Road, Venice, was arrested and
charged with aggravated do-
mestic assault with a deadly
weapon without intent to kill.
Cane abuse
Venice Police Department
Officers responded to a call on
Wednesday about 8:30 p.m.
involving one man hitting
another with a cane.
The victim said he had been
struck multiple times on his
back with a cane, causing red
marks. He said his attacker
broke the cane on his back.
Officers observed two red
marks on the victim's back.
It appears that the victim
was lured toward Grove Street
by a call from his attacker
about the victim's girlfriend
being in the area.
When officers searched
Gilbert Francis "Benji" Enos
Jr's. home, they found a broken


cane. Enos told officers the vic-
tim had approached him earli-
er in the evening and scared


Enos


him by waving a
jacket at him
while he was
leaning into his
van. Enos said he
threw some
papers in the vic-
tim's face and
told him he was
going to call the
cops. He said the


victim ran away.
Enos, 51, 2100 block
Groveland Ave., Venice, was
arrested and charged with
felony battery because he has
a prior conviction in North

Breekft County fixes liquor loophole, OKs $2.5M for construction


kickscff






BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

The Economic Devel-
opment Corp.'s investor
breakfast Tuesday at
Heron Creek Golf &
Country Club wasn't so
much an update as it
was a kickoff for the
Southwest Florida Eco-
nomic Development
Partnership.
A packed house of
people in business, high-
er education and govern-
ment listened to a five-
member panel includ-
ing North Port Economic
Development Manager
Allan Lane and Charlotte
County Economic Devel-
opment Director Don
Root talk about how
the partnership devel-
oped and why it is the
right time to think
"regional."
Kathy Baylis, presi-
dent and CEO of the
Sarasota County EDC,
led the discussion by
asking questions such
as why the counties
agreed to a partnership
that cost them $40,000
in startup funds.
Root said being part of
a large region is some-
thing he "pitched from
Day One."
"At the end of the day,
most people don't care
about boundaries," Lane
said, such as a person
who lives in North Port,
works in Charlotte
County, goes to church
in Venice and has a
favorite restaurant in the
city of Sarasota.
Good sense
When Baylis asked
how competing coun-
ties could be expected
to function together,
Lane responded that
"being very parochial
about a community
doesn't work."
"It makes good sense
to promote industries
(and) begin to do joint
marketing," he said.
James Moore, the
economic development
director in Lee County,
said "competition
serves us well."
"The hardest thing in
this business is to find
the prospects," Moore
said. For development
to take place, he said,
communities need to
"cast a wider net," and
regionalism will help
them get better results.
The Southwest Florida
Economic Development
Partnership currently in-
cludes economic devel-
opment managers from
Sarasota, Charlotte, Col-
lier, Glades and Lee
counties who have met
in closed sessions every
two months. (As non-
elected officials, they
are not subject to the
state Sunshine Law.)
DeSoto County, which
currently has the largest
photovoltaic solar-power
plant in the United
States, had a represen-
tative at the breakfast.
Following the meeting,
members discussed the
possibility of DeSoto
County joining the part-
nership.
The group's first
product is a Web site,
www.abrighterplace.
com, that will present
and promote the group's
mission and events.

gram with a cheerleader

Sarasota County commis-
sioners acted Tuesday on quali-
ty-of-life issues affecting resi-
dents, nonresidents, manatees
and nesting birds.
An emergency ordinance
regarding alcohol possession
and consumption was approved
5-0 by commissioners after a
staff oversight allowed a 2003
law to expire on Oct. 22. The
emergency ordinance reinstates
the prohibition of open contain-
ers and consumption of alcohol
on public rights of way in the
unincorporated areas of the
county.
Larry Arnold, executive direc-
tor of community services, had
recommended to the commis-
sioners that they include in their
motion the unusual step of hav-
ing the ordinance take effect as
soon as it is mailed to Florida's
secretary of state.
In order to avoid any prob-
lems, Arnold said, the ordinance
also will be reintroduced and go


through the usual adoption
process.
Nonresidents of the county
now can obtain library cards
after the commission voted 5-0
to allow tiered-fee cards for
three time periods. The nonresi-
dent fee schedule was included
in a resolution approving updat-
ed library fines and fees.
The motion, made by Com-
missioner Joe Barbetta, sets a
three-month card at $15, a six-
month card at $25 and a full-
year card at $40. Nonresidents,
according to library staff, are
those people who do not own
property in Sarasota County.
Library staff also recommend-
ed the elimination of replace-
ment-card fees. Replacing a card
costs 8 cents, and library staff
believe the fee elimination will
encourage patrons to replace lost
cards so they can use self-service
checkout equipment.
Other action
The final report regarding
changes to existing county man-
atee protection boating speed


14 ho0


zones was reviewed by commis-
sioners, who then voted to
include comments about the
report to the state Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission. Commissioners also
voted unanimously to acknowl-
edge the receipt of the local rule
review committee's report, to
incorporate its comments and
to send out letters thanking the
14 committee members.
There are no changes to the
manatee speed zones in the
Myakka River area, according
to Rachel Herman, natural
resources project manager.
In the discussion, commis-
sion consensus is that a slow-
speed zone near North Bridge
should extend to include bird
rookeries on the Bird Colony
Islands.
Additionally, Commission
Chair Jon Thaxton stated his
concern about Forked Creek, an
area he thinks attracts a large
amount of manatees.
"I suggest we say something
there," Thaxton said.
The FWC will review the


county final report Dec. 9-10
and make changes, if necessary,
at that time. The final ruling is
expected in spring or summer
2010.
In the consent portion of
the meeting, commissioners
approved a $838,950 contract
with Willis A. Smith Construc-
tion Inc. of Sarasota for the
restoration of the tower and
colonnade at the historic
Sarasota County Courthouse.
The project includes struc-
tural improvements to the land-
mark tower expected to prolong
its life. The restoration also
would encompass concrete
repair, masonry and terra cotta
repair, and clay tile roofing.
In total, commissioners
approved $2.57 million in con-
struction or repair projects,
including upgrades at the one-
story Terrace Building south of
the 10-story tower. The offices of
the county tax collector, property
appraiser and supervisor of elec-
tions are expected to be affected.

OUR VIEW


Put tax break to a vote ... in due time


S arasota County commissioners
have endorsed an initiative that
would set up another system of
tax breaks for new businesses, and
they authorized a public referendum
on the matter for next August, if not
sooner in a special election.
Put us down for a big "yes" on the
program itself, but a "no" on moving
the date ahead of a regular election.
As far as special elections are con-
cerned, we just don't favor them. The
turnout is invariably small, even
smaller than the pathetic voter re-
sponse we see at the polls in anything
other than a two-year general elec-
tion.
We understand the desire to get an
economic stimulus program in place
as soon as possible, but that doesn't
outweigh our aversion to a special
vote. Of course, the board could pig-
gyback with the Sarasota County
School Board's special election in
March for the extension of the local


school sales tax, but there's some
understandable concern about being
on the ballot with a direct tax measure
- any tax measure.
The school tax has passed handily
before, but times are a lot tougher
now, so who knows? Voters may just
be in a "no" mood.
Finally, there has been scuttlebutt
that a business group like the Greater
Sarasota Chamber of Commerce
might raise the $400,000 that it takes
to hold an election. Paying for an elec-
tion isn't the same as buying an elec-
tion, but it's a little too close for com-
fort. All in all, we think it's best to wait
until the August primary.
As for the measure itself, it makes
plenty of sense. Economic develop-
ment has long been a competitive
sport in this country, and you can
now extend the field of play to the
entire world. We don't want local offi-
cials to give away the shop, but we


certainly do want


them to have


enough reasonable tools on their belt
to get the job done.
We need jobs. We need newindustry.
We can no longer sit back and wait for
people to come and houses to be built
and services to spring up just because
we're sunny and warm and situated on
a beautiful stretch of the Gulf.
In a recent survey, 57 percent of
Sarasota County respondents ranked
"the opportunity to get good-paying
jobs" as the highest quality-of-life
issue. Some 86 percent supported
some form of tax breaks. The survey
clearly shows residents want local
public officials to take extraordinary
steps in these extraordinary times.
A "yes" vote in the referendum
would authorize the county to offer
certain new industries and business-
es tax exemptions for up to 10 years.
The practice tax abatement and tax
exemptions and the like is com-
monly practiced elsewhere north of
here, but it is rarer and needs special


authorization in Florida.
There are criteria for participation:
a new manufacturer that creates 10
jobs, a new national company that
employs 25 people or a new corporate
office that brings in 50 or more jobs. It
also works for existing businesses that
wish to expand.
The commission may, or may not,
grant exemptions of up to 100 percent
of new ad valorem taxes and tangible
personal property for up to a 10-year
period. It also has the discretion to do
less. Any final deal is up to elected
officials and must be adopted as an
ordinance.
Clearly, the intent is for targeted
businesses and industries, not just
another drug store or convenience
store. That does not fit the criteria.
But it could help persuade a top- or
even a medium-notch company to
set up shop here. It could bring job
opportunities and we need them.
This should be a slam-dunk.


She who laughs last...


MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


President Obama promised
"transparency" in his adminis-
tration. However, by creating
czars that are insulated from
accountability, he is moving in
the exact opposite direction.
Only a third of the czars
require Senate confirmation,
allowing the remaining czars
to ignore a congressional invi-
tation to testify. Sen. Robert
Byrd (D, WVa.) wrote in a letter
to Obama: "The accumulation
of power by White House staff
can threaten the constitution-
al system of checks and bal-
ances."
With more than 30 czars
appointed by President Oba-
ma (it was 31 until the "resig-
nation" of Van Jones, our
"green (red?) czar), I wonder
just who will be in charge of
health care? Will it be the sec-
retary of health and human
services or the White House
czar? One thing we do know
for certain now is that Obama's
health-care reform bill was
passed in Congress by a nar-
row and partisan margin, with
only one Republican assent.
Calling his plan "universal
health care" so we won't
notice it is socialized medicine
- is transparently insulting to
our intelligence. Nancy Pelosi
is so obviously thrilled with the
passage of the bill in Congress
that her smile resembles the
keys on a grand piano. Do you
consider America's slow shift
to one-world European poli-
cies a win? To me, it is more
like trying to be equal when
you are all ready superior.
There are problems within
Medicare, but they can be rec-
tified without upsetting the
whole apple cart. First, how
about the more than $60 bil-
lion in Medicare fraud we are
facing due to incompetence in
the system? There have been
Medicare-sponsored plans
created to reduce the fraud.
Doesn't it make sense that pro-
grams run by the companies
that pay the bills will be more
diligent in sniffing out fraud
than government employees
shuffling papers?
It's a known fact that if the
health-care reform bill is


enacted, Advantage plans will
be kaput. Obama has already
indicated he will not reim-
burse the independent insur-
ance agencies that take over
the retirees who join the plans.
Personally, in my three years in
Medicare Advantage I have
saved at least $3,000 out of my
pocket. I have gone over the
these plans so often in my
columns I am going to leave it
at that and ask my fellow
seniors, do you want the gov-
ernment taking over your
health care or do you want
some options?
How often have I written
about tort reform as being
necessary to reduce medical
bills? I feel like a broken record,
but it's just common sense.
Doctors pay through the nose
for protection from malprac-
tice suits and, naturally, that
affects our charges. Incident-
ally, I have not heard of a "tort
reform czar" as yet, and I am
not holding my breath.
Universal medicine promis-
es that everyone will have
health insurance. Well, here's a
news flash we have Medi-
caid. Unfortunately, 47 percent
of uninsured people "choose"
not to purchase health insur-
ance. Do we want to weaken
the strong of the nation who
support themselves with intel-
ligent priorities in favor of
those who want to live off the
sweat of your brow? I don't
think so.
Noncoverage of pre-existing
conditions is a serious problem
for many and one I feel should
be rectified. Instead of social-
ized medicine, couldn't our
government put those people
into the Medicaid program?
Maybe that isn't feasible, but for
a government that has ap-
proved entry into this country
of aliens with HIV I think we
should somehow protect our
own citizens without funda-
mentally changing the struc-
ture of our government.
Recently, I saw a video star-
ring a lot of very important
movie and TV stars who were
mocking the Americans who
don't want "universal medi-
cine." Well, you limousine lib-
erals, why don't you move to
Europe if you like the way they
run things? Oh, I forgot you
couldn't make the gazillion
dollars a year over there that
you do here.
So, smile on Nancy, but let's
see who has the last laugh.
Mary Kay Ruppel is a Venice
resident and has been a fre-
quent contributor to other
publications. She writes a reg-
ular column for this page.

Let's talk turkey downtown

Turkey time. After all of the Halloween festivities are over and
all the decorations are cleaned up, could Venice MainStreet
please put up some sort of Thanksgiving decoration or display or
something in Centennial Park? Instead, we go straight from
Halloween to all the gaudy Christmas decorations. After all, we
have so much to be grateful for this year and every year just to
be living in America. I think we should be taking note of it and
putting some sort of display up where people will notice it.


Abstain. I'd like to respond
to "Prevention" in Let'em Have
It. Since Planned Parenthood
has become involved in our
schools, our teenagers are
more sexually active than
they've ever been; sexually
transmitted diseases are up.
They're claiming that Planned
Parenthood has helped pre-
vent pregnancies no, preg-
nancies have gone up even
with Planned Parenthood. I
would like to say that there is a
higher authority and it's called
God. And God says, do not
murder. Once conception has
occurred, murder takes place.
So all Planned Parenthood's
ideas about helping the chil-
dren have just helped the chil-
dren have the freedom to be
sexually active. They should
not restrain themselves from
being sexually active. They
should just use protection. No.
Children should not be sexual-
ly active until they commit to a
marriage some time in their
20s. Planned Parenthood needs
to go. It is the biggest abortion
provider in the country.
Duplication. Well, here we
go again Mayor Martin tak-
ing credit for something that
wasn't his idea in the first
place. Yes, indeed. He was
asked and told that we needed
to have a Christmas in Venice
every year and it was to be at
Blalock Park. However, he took
that one step further and
decided to spend money to cut
down trees in Centennial Park,
plant a Christmas tree and
have Christmas there. We're
already having it at Blalock.
Why are we duplicating these


Let 'em


Have It


services when we could save
money by not cutting down
trees and just have Christmas
at Blalock Park, like originally
planned? Blalock Park is a
beautiful park, and we are
grateful for the efforts that
have been put in to that park
so that everybody can enjoy it.
It was not the call of the mayor.
Drill a minute. The head for
this might be "Drill, stupid,
drill." Why in the world would
we risk our main draws -
tourism and beaches by
drilling for oil in the Gulf, and
then turn around and sell it
overseas, to Venezuela even?
What's wrong with people? As
for solar energy, well Charlie
Crist sure turned tail and ran
from the president's efforts to
spark some interest in that free
and clean energy source. So
long, Crist.

Venice? It's great for catering
halls in hotels and the like, but
I've seen valets in the North
and the valet jockeys are so
anxious to get that tip that they
break traffic laws and have all
kinds of hazards. It's danger-
ous. They'll be speeding down
Venice Avenue, making turns
where they shouldn't be.
Pedestrians will be in trouble
and so will other cars. I don't
think it's a good idea. Not for
Venice.
Wrong day. Your paper says
the banjo playing at Snook
Haven is on Wednesday, and
it's on Thursday. I just made a
trip all the way out there for
nothing.
Outfoxed. With the econo-
my the way it is and people
having trouble paying their
bills, I would think the presi-
dent would have more to do
than be childish and thin-
skinned and sit around and
pick a fight with a TV network.
Fox channel is the only one
that tells us what's going on in
the world behind closed doors
and about the rules and regu-
lations they don't want us to
know about.

WEEKEND EDITION NOV. 14, 2009


LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Your gift could save a life

Editor:
I am writing to ask people to consider being an
organ donor. I am asking because my sister recently
received a new heart.
My sister, Sonja, had her first heart attack at 39. She
was fine for 22 years until she had another heart
attack. She struggled along for another three or four
years, losing more heart capacity every month.
She was told back in December 2008 that she
would need a heart transplant. The doctors put her on
a heart pump, which entailed tubes and wearing an 8-
pound battery pack, which had to be changed every
four to six hours.
Due to her blood type, AB negative, and her anti-
bodies from her years in India, a perfect heart was
almost impossibility. One option was a procedure to
strip the antibodies; the other was to hope and pray
for the perfect match.
Eight weeks ago, a miracle occurred. Because of the
generosity of a stranger, a perfect heart became avail-
able.
Sonja's new heart has been healing well, according
to her doctors, although she has had to battle shin-
gles, which are beginning to heal as well.
I would strongly urge you to consider becoming an
organ donor. I had never thought much of being an
organ donor, but having my sister's health restored
has encouraged me to sign up.

Venice is on
the brink
Editor:
I am a native Venetian,
born in Venice 72 years
ago. I have traveled the
world over and have
never found a place I
thought would be better
than Venice in which to
grow up.
I was forced, for eco-
nomic reasons, to leave
Venice as a young adult
to pursue a career. My
parents continued to live
in Venice until their
deaths. Their continued
presence there brought
me home frequently.
Though they are gone
now, I still return for visits
with friends on a regular
basis.
I find it highly disturb-
ing to find that the
moronic actions and self-
ish thinking of only God
knows who are insisting
on forcing their values -
or nonvalues on oth-
ers. When the small,
wonderful places like
Venice fall to these self-
centered, narrow-mind-
ed, thin-skinned types,
our country's fall from
God's graces will nearly
be complete.
You can tell them all:
There will always be a
Christmas, with Jesus
and God being honored,
and 95 percent of Amer-
icans still believe in what
our dollar illustrates: In
God we trust.

Jim Boone
Via e-mail
Walia says thanks
Editor:
A few months ago I
stood in front of you and
announced my candida-
cy for a seat on Venice
City Council. Today, I am
concluding my cam-
paign by addressing you
once again to express my
many thanks for all the
support and help you
have given me during
these past months.
Looking back, I can
say that our campaign
was a success even
though it did not bring us
victory. We ran a very
effective, above-board,
clean campaign and we
played by the rules. We
did not win a seat on city
council but we gained
valuable experience.


Your hard work, com-
radeship and unwaver-
ing support helped us to
dispel the difficulties and
to withstand the horror
of smears, insults and
personal attacks. We sur-
vived but we fell short of
victory by just a few
votes. We learned that
every vote counts.
The campaign trail
proved to be challenging
but memorable because I
have gained many new
and wonderful friend-
ships, which are now
among my most cher-
ished possessions. As I
step back, reorganize and
rethink my future in-
volvement in politics, I
will only say I may return,
God willing.
The citizens' choice as
the new council member
for the next three years
can, of course, count on
my cooperation. The wel-
fare and the path to
recovery of the city of
Venice depend upon po-
litical participation and
remaining active and vig-
ilant.
Thank you for your
support, and God bless
you and our community.

One day at a time


FRAN VALENCIC
COLUMNIST



"I'm glad you are trav-
eling again," my daugh-
ter Shari said to me.
My eyes filled with
tears as we ended our
phone conversation. I
was waiting to board my
plane for my first trip in
two years.
Heading to Cleveland,
Ohio, to see my mom, my
girlfriends and the Cleve-
land Indians came at the
end of a two-year journey
of cancer treatment that
included chemotherapy,
radiation and the ampu-
tation of my left arm and
shoulder.
Shari's words touched
my heart, as she'd been at
every biopsy and surgery.
She'd wake me with
either, "Mom you're go-
ing to be fine," "The tu-
mor is benign" or "Mom,
it is cancer but it can be
treated."
After the amputation,
she woke me with, "The
doctor said everything
went well and I have a
surprise for you Mr.
and Mrs. C. are moving
back to Venice." It was the
best surprise I could
have. I love Dean and
Barbara Calamaras and
hearing they were mov-
ing back to Venice from
Atlanta helped my recov-
ery.
I planned my trip to
Cleveland well. Traveling
through Tampa was
familiar. I got my board-
ing pass and paid the $15
for my luggage online. I
checked the A-1 Express
Park and Fly I always use
and learned its price was
$7 per day and it offered a
one-day free coupon. I
allowed three hours air-
port time.
When I arrived at A-1, I
checked in. A nice man
took my suitcase out of


the car, put it in the van
and dropped my case
and me right at the Air-
Tran gate check-in. That
was easy.
The airport staff made
me feel comfortable. I
wore a pouch around my
neck with my driver
license, boarding pass,
dollar bills for tips and
cash for purchases. When
I showed the first guard
my pass and license, he
told me I could put the
license away and would-
n't need it again.
Because I was so early,
traffic at the airport was
light especially at securi-
ty. I only had a purse, my
pouch and slip-on shoes
to put in a plastic bin. I
walked through the arch
and didn't beep. That is
always my goal. I put the
pouch back over my
head, slung the purse
over my shoulder, drop-
ped the shoes and slip-
ped them on. I felt good.
My next step was get-
ting breakfast and a USA
Today. This is always my
ritual when I travel. I
walked over to Starbucks,
ordered a tall coffee and
grabbed a banana and
the paper. As I was pay-
ing, I asked Beulah who
was handling the trans-
action, if she had a carri-
er. She flashed me a great
smile and said, "How
would you like a small
brown sack with han-
dles?" "I love you," I re-
plied. Beulah packed my
bag and I was on my way.
I found a great table
for four that was readily
available as it was 8:30
a.m. and the airport was
still in early mode. I
opened my paper, took a
long sip of the coffee and
proceeded to peel the
banana.
I've learned that peel-
ing a banana is a two-
handed job. In my "new
normal," I wrapped the
bottom half of the ba-
nana in a napkin, put it
between my knees and
peeled it from the top.
I enjoyed my break-
fast, then walked over to
the bookshop. Even
though I brought along a
small paperback book
that was in my purse, I
couldn't resist the new

"I'm glad you are traveling again," my
daughter Shari said to me.
- Fran Valencic talking to her daugh-
ter after two years of not traveling


Nicholas Sparks paper-
back.
I sat at the gate, and
that was where I had my
brief conversation with
Shari. By now my travel
confidence level was off
the chart.
After boarding the
plane, I was grateful for
my aisle seat and happy
that "E" and "F" were al-
ready seated. I quickly
learned that fastening an
airplane seatbelt is also a
two-handed job. It took
me a few minutes and a
few tries to make it a one-
handed job. As I listened
to the flight attendant
give the safety instruc-
tions, I envisioned how I
would fasten the oxygen
mask, put on the life vest
and loosen the flotation
device under my seat.
During the flight I did
ask the flight attendant to
open my bag of pretzels.
She struggled and we
laughed and noted that
even with two hands it
was a struggle.
By the time we landed
at the Akron-Canton Air-
port I was an expert with
my seat belt, as "E" and
"F" were extremely
thirsty I got to practice
buckling and unbuckling
four times in two hours.
The nonstop flight
was smooth and un-
eventful. We landed at


12:11 p.m. After getting
off the plane, I walked
over to get my luggage.
The belt is right across
from the car rental,
which had no one in line.
Connie at Hertz took
good care of me and said
I'd be driving a redYaris. I
also like the fact the cred-
it card I used gave me an
extra 15 percent discount
at the rental.
Just as Connie handed
me the keys, the lights
flashed and the luggage
came around. My bag
was among the first. I lift-
ed it off the belt, walked
out to the car and strug-
gled a little to get my bag
into the back of the car
but succeeded.
I acclimated to the car,
turned the radio to 1100
AM, the Cleveland sports
station, and I was on my
way heading north on I-
77 toward Cleveland.
It was 12:33, just 22
minutes after landing.
The temperature was a
wonderful 70 degrees.
The sun was shining and
I felt as though all of
nature was welcoming
me back to my roots.
I settled in for an easy
35-minute drive to Cleve-
land.
I knew for sure life is
good.

come across in 20 years of
working in hospitals.
"It absolutely is an epi-
demic," he said. "It really
effects everyone."
Under Sarasota Mem-
orial's system, if a patient
is red-flagged as a drug
abuser, he's denied med-
ication and authorities
are called.
The hospital typically
opts for caution with pa-
tients it's never seen be-
fore. Doctors are forced
to evaluate the emotions
and actions their patients
portray.
If they seem high or
their story seems ridicu-
lous, it probably is, Col-
gate said.
"The biggest problem
is, doctors have no way to
know what other medical
facilities are doing," he
said. 'A patient here com-
plaining about pain could
have been to four other
walk-ins this morning."
A challenge
Most patients seeking
pain medication com-
plain about back prob-
lems. In fact, OxyContin
- one of the most com-
monly abused opiates -
was designed specifically
to alleviate severe back
pain, Colgate said.
But unlike a broken
knee or sprained ankle,
there's not much doctors
can do to disprove those
complaints, aside from
pricey MRIs.
"It's such a tricky topic
because you can't refuse a
patient care," said Michele
Ritter, director of market-
ing at Fawcett Memorial.
"But we are seeing it more
and more."
And the problem
spreads beyond an addict's
ability to get high.
The more people visit-
ing hospitals for illegiti-
mate reasons, the fewer
doctors there are available
for those in true need of
care, Colgate said.
This creates longer
waiting lines and boosts
the average cost of visits,
and can even hinder a
"real" patient's ability to
get needed medications,
he said.
State authorities are
working on a records sys-
tem to interconnect pre-
scriptions written for nar-
cotics, but Colgate said that
system is a long time com-
ing.
"It's certainly a chal-
lenge," Colgate said. "We'll
just continue to do the best
we can."

REFLECT from Page 1A


think we've closed the door on that. That's
part of my legacy too."
His advice
"Remember, the disagreements that get
rather intense, while they get emotional
they are not personal. They are issues and
we need to behave like legislators."
"I've even been chief of staff of the Air
Force Europe Exchange Service that had 125
American executives, and 30,000 other peo-
ple in it, served 18 years as a public official in
various capacities and been around 26 years
in this city. In all those years I've never seen
a better staff than you have right here. They
know their business. When anybody goes
into city clerk's office asking for whatever,
they get them what they want with a big
smile and it's 100 percent of the time.
Same with management. They are remark-
able. My advice is recognize them, use
them, ask for their advice."
"Micro-managing is killing you. And I
hear more in the community complaining
about it. We seem to be telling them what to
do because we've already decided (what
needs to be done without seeking or heed-
ing their advice). We need shorter, more
meaningful meetings, and less micro-man-
aging."
Noren Taylor's list
Michael Howe, with the Sarasota-
Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organ-
ization, a regional group that priorities and
helps secure federal transportation infra-
structure funds, said during Noren Taylor's
tour as Venice representative the city


JEFF HANDLEYHTG&
AIR CONDITIONING


received $3 million in enhancement pro-
jects, and secured the U.S. 41 Venice Bypass
project as the No. 1 priority in the region for
six years, bringing in roughly $40 million to
date in planning dollars alone.
Noren Taylor said she decided not to run
again to concentrate on her consulting busi-
ness and spent quality family time.
"I am in my prime earning years, and
with the economy and two of three kids in
college, I have to focus."
She's looking forward to more family time
now that her son is back in Germany, having
recently finished a second tour of military
duty in Iraq.
Tops on her list of highlights:
"The bond passed when I was first
elected six years ago. Residents put their
trust in us to place their tax dollars into
those enhanced projects for the communi-
ty."
"Promoting former city manager Marty
Black as chief executive officer. We gave him
support and he started the PRIDE philoso-
phy and mission for the city. It helped treat
employees and constituents in a more fair
manner and improved morale."
"Beginning a process to enhance the
Seaboard area and both sides of the
Intracoastal. We have some excellent profes-
sionals in the community who can help us
with that. That entire area can be a wonder-
ful middle entrance to the city."
Disappointments
She considers the comprehensive plan
"almost a lost cause."
"The majority had a slow-growth vision


that wasn't going to help Venice weather the
recession. We can plan growth without
being obnoxious. I traveled and saw many
innovative projects, but here we have this
one Northern Italian style that nobody
wants to change."
"Fewer and shorter meetings. I just can't
run a business like this. I'm trying to earn a
living. I just can't see how we can meet that
much."
She was one of the few sitting council
members not implicated in the Sunhsine
lawsuit that cost the city $1.5 million. She
called for those implicated to resign if found
guilty, but a settlement made it a moot
point. She voted for the settlement to spare
taxpayers even greater financial cost, but
regretted a judge did not get to rule on the
allegations.
Her advice
"Don't let anybody label you. There was
a lot of discussion over the past few years
about (advocacy) groups like the Citizens
for Quality Government and Venice
Taxpayers League. There are good people in
each group, despite some of the negative
publicity each attracted."
"Listen to the majority, not just the 20
percent who are always for or against a
cause. They love where they live, but don't
often speak out to voice their concerns. Do
what's best for the community as a whole.
"And don't always believe what you see
on a blog. Don't listen to the negativity of
those special interests."

Study: Better principals equals better students


Legislature and Department of Education
began handing down requirements for
school districts and universities to
improve their leadership programs.


BY CHRISTINE HAWES
SUN
CORRESPONDENT

When Wendy Katz
first became a Sarasota
County school assistant
principal in the early
1990s, she remembers
her experience as being
in "a strange world."
"There was no sup-
port, really," recalled the
former principal of
Laurel Nokomis School.
"I had a principal as a
mentor who really wasn't
very interested in talking
to another principal. I
felt somewhat isolated. It
was a competitive rather
than a collaborative en-
vironment. We were
seen as a system of
schools rather than a
school system."
Katz, now head of


leadership development
for Sarasota County
schools, is at the fore-
front of changing that
environment. Since tak-
ing her current position
six years ago, Katz has
helped Sarasota County
become a statewide
leader in preparing prin-
cipals by building a pro-
gram that maximizes
mentoring, collabora-
tion and instructional
preparation.
The change in princi-
pal preparation is a
combination of nation-
wide, state and local fac-
tors. Nationwide, a
growing body of re-
search shows a link be-
tween strong principals
and student achieve-
ment. The Stanford Edu-
cational Leadership In-
stitute released a report


in 2005 showing that
effective school princi-
pals are second only to
high-quality teachers in
affecting how well stu-
dents achieve in class.
The report also outlined
a nationwide shortage of
principal candidates,
and weaknesses in most
principal preparation
programs in universities
and school districts.
Recognizing this
growing body of re-
search, the Florida Leg-
islature and Department
of Education began in
2006 handing down re-
quirements for school
districts and universities
to improve their leader-
ship programs.
Sarasota County posi-
tioned itself as a
statewide leader of
growing stronger princi-
pals in 2001 when Katz
and former superinten-
dent Wilma Hamilton
led a philosophical shift
focused on "recruiting
from within."
Sarasota County


founded its Leadership
Academy in 2003, creat-
ing a two-year program
that identifies and pre-
pares teachers within
the district to ascend to
leadership positions at
both the district and
school-based level. Sara-
sota also has a Preparing
Principals program aim-
ed specifically at future
principals.
"These are tough
jobs," Katz said, "and we
want to make sure that
when we develop people
they're prepared to meet
the challenges of the job
and that we retain our
good principals."
Proactive
The programs have
drawn praise from state
officials.
"Sarasota is one of the
districts that was actual-
ly working on having
their programs before
the state made them do
it," said Kathy Hebda,
vice chancellor of acade-
mic quality and assur-


ance. "They're further
along in their develop-
ment than a lot of coun-
ties."
The state's new re-
quirements apply to not
just school districts, but
the public universities
and some private col-
leges that are traditional-
ly the providers of edu-
cational leadership de-
grees. The new programs
have several key factors
in common:
Real-life experience.
While university educa-
tional administration
programs used to offer
mainly coursework on
administrative theory
and school law, they're
now required to provide
internships as well.
District programs like
Sarasota's Leadership
Academy also highly
emphasize actual intern-
ships.
Networking oppor-
tunities. While school
principals from decades
before often experienced
isolation, today's leader-


ship programs are built
to ensure that principals
in training interact regu-
larly with others going
through the same expe-
rience.
"I appreciate the fact
that I had trusted re-
sources that were walking
in the same shoes I am,
seeing the same issues I
was," said Garden
Elementary Principal
John McQueen, a 2005
graduate of the
Leadership Academy who
taught in the Sarasota
district for 16 years before
becoming an assistant
principal at Brentwood
Elementary. "We were
able to share, back and
forth, useful strategies."
An emphasis on
data analysis. Because of
their increasing role in
planning curriculum
around student needs,
today's principals need
to be better prepared to
interpret and analyze a
variety of data sources
on student achievement,
McQueen said.


FAA from Page 1A


airport reference code
would have the desired
effect of discouraging
some jets from frequent-
ing the airport, and
would keep safety zones
within airport bound-
aries and not over neigh-
borhood homes or en-
croach onto a cherished
local golf course.
The FAA, however, has
directly and indirectly
indicated Venice airport
is a "C-II" airport, despite
documentation showing
fewer than 500 annual
estimated landings and
take offs the tipping
point at which an airport
is categorized by the FAA
as a "C."
Armed with new DY
data showing roughly 493
"C" aircraft operations,
proponents say the FAA
has no choice but to cate-
gorize it as a B airport.
But the FAA has said the
down economy has
played a role and is likely
to insist that be taken
into account in opera-
tions estimates over the
next five years, thereby
upping the estimates
beyond the 500 thresh-
old.
Costs
On Thursday council
authorized DY Consult-
ants to embark on a face-
to-face with the FAA. This
time they'll be armed
with cost estimates out-
lining what it would take
to meet various FAA safe-
ty zone standards.
Mastropieri said show-
ing how expensive it is to


meet FAA standards
might work in the city's
favor.
For example, remov-
ing a few dozen homes
from the Gulf Shore
neighborhood to vacate
a safety zone, DY esti-
mated, could conserva-
tively cost $7.3 million
plus a $300,000 environ-
mental assessment. Cou-
ncil members have said
that's not even an option
and the FAA will not force
the issue.
Also prohibitively ex-
pensive is another alter-


native, implementing an
EMAS (Engineered Ma-
terials Arresting System
of crushable concrete) at
the end of various run-
ways. That's estimated to
cost $9 million over 10
years.
Eliminating the cur-
rent Lake Venice Golf
Course driving range (a
must, said DY), and
pulling back six or more
holes from the fence line
out of the safety zone
would essentially require
reconfiguring the entire
course, DY said.

They offered a num-
ber of alternatives, like
reconfiguring the 27-
hole course into 18 holes,
or maintaining the cur-
rent number of holes by
extending the course out
next to the Intracoastal. If
a waiver isn't granted,
relocating the clubhouse,
cart building, moving the
driving range, and relo-
cating past of the parking
lot could add $2 million
to the project, in addition
to the cost of relocating
six holes.


'New ball game'
A "hybrid" solution DY
recently came up with
might serve as the basis
for a workable compro-
mise assuming the
FAA turns down the "B-
II" determination. DY
will discuss this backup
alternative to the FAA
next week.
That idea is rebuild
Runway 4-22 to a "C"
(current) standard, and
downsize Runway 13-31
to a "B" through the use
of "declared distances."
That would essentially


make aircraft take off and
land further away from
Gulf Shores homes.
Martin said it changes
the discussion.
"It's a whole new ball
game," he said.
Council agreed to
hold a special meeting
on the morning of its
next regular council
meeting on Nov. 24 to
learn more about the
FAA's response and per-
haps make a decision on
how to move forward.

CROSS COUNTRY CLASS 5A-REGION 3





Venice hurt by timing mistake


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


SUN PHOTO BY PERRY D. PENTZ
Venice's Kelly White, left, and Rosa Canas run in the final mile of the Class 3A-Region 3 cross country
championships on Friday morning at the Charlotte Sports Park in Port Charlotte. White and Canas placed
25th and 26th in the 3.1-mile race as the Lady Indians just missed qualifying for states with a seventh-place
finish.


From elation to devastation
in less than 20 minutes.
With tears streaming down
their faces, the Venice High
girls cross country team found
out they went from state quali-
fiers to missing the pinnacle of
a high school career by a mere
two points.
Scoring errors in prelimi-
nary results caused the Lady
Indians to fall out of the top
six automatic state-qualifying
spots into seventh place in the
Class 3A-Region 3 cross coun-
try championship on Friday
morning at the Charlotte
Sports Park in Port Charlotte.
Venice's total went from 155
to 175 as the top 25 was miss-
ing four runners from various
teams including Lemon Bay
and Cape Coral Ida Baker.
After the final tabulation,
the Lady Indians were in sev-
enth place with 175 points.
Lemon Bay grabbed the final
state qualifying position in
sixth place with 173 points.
"They posted the results and
everyone saw that and thought
that was the way it was," said
Venice girls coach Brenda
Clark. "I'm disappointed in
what happened with the timing
system. I don't know if it was the
(timing) chips (in the sneakers)
or what happened. At the state
meet you get a chip on each
foot. Sometimes that foot
makes a difference at the finish
line. Whoever foot gets across
the finish line with the chip is
the one that gets the finish."
This is what might have
happened to the Venice's Lucy
Horton, their fifth runner.
"Lucy Horton and the other
girl (Lemon Bay's Jill Bowen)
were neck and neck right at the
finish line," said Clark. "Her
foot went over before Lucy's
did."
Bowen finished with a time
of 22:58.57 while Horton's was
22:58.70 in 52nd and 53rd
place.
A switch of their places
would have forced a tie
between the teams for the final
qualifying spot.


"What happened here, not
just with my team, but every-
body else's team too that were
caught in the bevy of runners
missing," said Clark. "That's
very devastating to teams men-
tally. This is the regional meet.
This is whether or not teams
are making it to states and
that's what hurts the most."
Lakewood Ranch, who had
five runners in the top 10, cap-
tured the regional title with a 32
total. Fort Myers, led by first-
place finisher Sarah Spann,
was second with 55 points.
Spann covered the 3.1-mile
race in a time of 18 minutes,
44.51 seconds.
Four of the six Venice run-
ners had their best times of the
season including top finishers
sophomore Kelly White and
senior Rosa Canas, who crossed
the line in 25th and 26th place
in 21:06.61 and 21:07.99.
"My place is not where I
wanted it," said White before
the bad news. "Honestly I died.
I tried my hardest. I didn't get a
good start. There were too
many people at the start in
front of me. Everybody pushed
and it was really fast in the
beginning. It wasn't my best
run but it might have been my
best time honestly."
"I still take nothing away
from these kids," said Clark.
"They fought with everything
they had today and they ran
exceptionally well and I'm
very, very proud of them."
Sophomore Thelia Meza
was 39th out of 83 runners
with a time of 22:29.43 while
senior Cynthia Melendez-
Flynn was 47th in 22:48.34. The
Lady Indians' final runners
were sophomore Iris Canas
(67th, 24:06.19) and junior
Melinn Pfifer (68th, 24:08.83).
"They are taking it very,
very hard," said Clark. "They
thought they had gunned it
out and stuck it out and were
the victors. In that instance,
they were all elated when
they posted the results and
now the agony of deflation
after you find out you didn't. I
guess that's sports."

BOYS SOCCER




Palmetto downs Venice


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice coach Seth Jones was hoping
his boys soccer team would carry over
the second half of its previous match
against Sarasota into Wednesday's
match against Palmetto.
However, it wasn't the case as the
Indians lost 3-0 to the Tigers in the
home opener at Powell-Davis Stadium.
Venice had trouble stringing passes
together and it didn't get its first legiti-
mate shot until 30 minutes into the
match by junior Joey Carlin from 30
yards out. The keeper caught the ball
for the save.
"It wasn't pretty at all," said Venice
boys coach Seth Jones. '"A lot too much
kickball. For us a very sloppy game. Not
the way we played in the second half
yesterday (a 3-1 loss to Sarasota)."
Palmetto (1-0) wasn't a pushover by
any means despite having to replace
eight starters from its Class 4A state
semifinal team of last year.
The Tigers scored in the 11th minute
on a goal by Andrew Lersch on a shot
into the lower far corner as Venice goal-


keeper John Morse came out of the goal
trying to clear the ball.
"I don't think we put two or three
passes together all night," said Jones.
"Maybe it was a combination of having
two games back to back but you can't
make those excuses because there are
going to be those times when you are
playing two or three games in a week."
The Tigers went ahead 2-0 in the
34th minute as Jose Martinez ripped a
shot past the keeper from 32-yards out.
"For years we've had a MO of we go
down a couple of goals and all of a sud-
den the fire gets lit," said Jones.
"Tonight it didn't get lit at all. We have a
lot of work to do."
In the second half, Venice had a
chance in the 51st minute. Matt
McGuire's shot from about 15-yards out
popped off his foot and over the goal.
Four minutes later, Palmetto added
its final goal as the wet ball slipped
through second-half goalkeeper Aaron
Nowak's hands.
"You can rely on your defense but
only so much," said Jones. "When the
defense is really put to the test 80 min-
utes a game, it's a tough call."

Zgrabik signs with FIU


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

As a freshman, Ven-
ice's Chelsea Zgrabik
tried a new position.
The 17-year-old put
on the shin guards, pad
and mask for the first
time as catcher and it's
stuck.
Now, Zgrabik, who
has a rifle for a throwing
arm, will be taking her
talents to the next level
as she signed a letter of
intent to play for Division
I Florida International
University in Miami.
"I started catching
when I came into high
school," said Zgrabik,
who starting playing
softball at 5 years old. "I
was always a short-
stop/middle infielder. I
was at my rec ball game
and I was like, 'man we
really don't have a
catcher. I would like to
try it.' So I asked my
coach and he said 'yeah
go for it. Try it.' "
Four years later, it's
still a big part of her.
"It was one of those
things that came natu-
rally and it's always
stuck," said Zgrabik.
"You are in every play of
the game. No doubt
about it. Throwing girls
out at second (base) no
doubt is awesome."
Zgrabik, who has been
on the varsity four years,
and helped lead the Lady
Indians to back-to-back
Class 5A state runner-up
finishes the last two years
with a combined record
of 54-9-1 record.

Venice's Chelsea Zgrabik, center, is all smiles after signing
with Division I Florida International University on a full ath-
letic scholarship for softball. Sharing the experience, front
row, from left, are Mike Zgrabik, Julie Zgrabik and Joshua
Zgrabik, and, back row, from left, Becky Zgrabik, Emalee
Sands, Venice High principal Candance Millington, Venice
athletics director and former softball coach Larry
Sandburg and assistant athletics director and former
assistant softball coach Pete Dombroski.


As a sophomore,
Zgrabik hit .500 (47-of-94
with 11 doubles, 13
home runs and 30 runs
scored and 42 RBI. Last
year, she hit .431 (44-of-
102) with six doubles, five
home runs and 29 RBI.
Zgrabik chose the
Golden Panthers over
Michigan.
"I really like the coach-
es Beth (McClendon)
and Lindsay (Leftwich)
as they have a great pro-
gram going. Even though
they are losing some
good players this year
she's got a lot of good
players coming in. They
also have a brand new
medical program too
which I'm interested in
starting. It's close to
home and has a lot of
things to do. I'm never
going to be bored."
Last year, the Golden
Panthers finished with a
31-29 record including


13-11 in the Sun Belt
Conference.
Zgrabik said it was
important to decide on
a college early.
"With all the pressure
from colleges now I had
to make my decision
whether to verbal or not
in February," said Zgrabik,
who also visited Florida
Gulf Coast University. "I
thought FIU would be the
best decision because
they gave me a full ride
(athletic scholarship). I'm
really excited. They are
one of those coaches you
can talk to like a normal
person on and off the
field. Everybody on the
team is close and hang
out with each other."
Zgrabik, who has a 4.3
weighted GPA, wants to
major in sports medi-
cine.

Haefele signs with IUPUI


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice's Danielle
Haefele only needed one
visit before she was
hooked.
After a trip to
Indianapolis, Haefele
decided on Division I
Indiana University
Purdue University at
Indianapolis to further
her education and tennis
skills.
The senior No. 1 play-
er for the Lady Indians
signed a letter-of-intent
to play for the Jaguars on
a scholarship.
"When I did my offi-
cial visit in September, I
loved everything," said
Haefele. "The girls were
so nice and so welcom-
ing and so outgoing. I
fit well with them.
(Head coach) Cameron
Benjamin knows what
she is talking about. She
really likes the team
aspect of bonding and
being close with one
another. After I came
home I knew I wanted to
go there. It was the place
for me. When I gave her
my verbal (commitment)
on the phone, it felt like a
million pounds left my
shoulders."
"It's an excellent deci-
sion for Danielle," said
Venice girls coach Barb
Ginn. "It's a smaller
school but not real small.
When she went there and
played for the coach she
was happy with it."

This is the second
straight year which
Venice has signed a girls
tennis player. Last year,
Rachel Rossi signed with
Division II Marion
Military Institute of
Marion, Ala.
Haefele will begin her
fourth year on varsity this
season.
"She started playing
very early and set a goal
early on that she wanted
to play in college," said
Ginn. "She definitely has
a passion for the game of
tennis and has a work
ethic like we don't see so
much anymore. She is
very competitive."
The Jaguars compete
in the Summit League
and finished with a 1-22
record and 1-7 in the
league.
This year, the team
has no seniors or juniors
just seven freshmen and
four sophomores.
Last year, Haefele,
who played at No. 1 sin-
gles and doubles, helped
the Lady Indians place
second in districts and
qualify for regional com-
petition.
Helping make Haefele's
decision was the fact
she used to live up there
and also has family in
the area.
"I also really liked the
big town aspect of just
being right in the middle
of the city," said Haefele.

Krauss signs with Palm Beach Atlantic


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

After what he describes as a
sub-par season, Venice's Brent
Krauss worked on getting better.
The off-season hard work has
paid off as the 17-year-old senior
pitcher increased the speed of his
fastball and it has translated into
him signing a letter-of-intent to
attend Division II Palm Beach
Atlantic in West Palm Beach on a
partial athletic scholarship.
The 6-foot-1 right-hander was-
n't happy with his pitching last
year but worked out and got
stronger in the offseason.
"After last year I was having sec-
ond guesses," said Krauss about
playing college ball. "I threw really
good over the summer. I was
throwing 90s (mph) and realized I
wanted to play college baseball. I
put the blame on myself because I
didn't pitch as good as I thought I
would. This year is going to be dif-
ferent."
Krauss also had interest from
Florida Gulf Coast University and
University of Central Florida early
in the recruiting process but PBA
stuck with the three-year varsity
player.
"I'm really excited and cannot
wait," said Krauss. "I scrimmaged
with the team before (two weeks
ago) and they were solid and they
really liked me."

a good academic school as well."
Last year, PBA finished with a
10-36 record and advanced to the
National Christian College Athletic
Association (NCCAA) World Series
as the No. 9 seed.
Krauss is glad to get the deci-
sion over with early.
"It took a lot of pressure off my
shoulders," said Krauss. "I could
feel it taken off right away and I
feel I can pitch better."
Krauss is optimistic about the
season and feels the Indians,
who struggled to a 9-17 season,
will turn it around this year.
"We are definitely going to win
a state championship," said
Krauss. "We have the pitching
and all the things in place."

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

It seems it was only yes-
terday when Venice resi-
dent Roscoe Turner
made his first volunteer
trip to Thailand.
The first story about the
man who is changing a coun-
try, one project at a time, ap-
peared in the Venice Gondolier
Sun several years ago.
He went then, as he contin-
ues to do, at his own expense.
Turner hoped to help the dis-
aster victims of the tsunami
that hit Phuket in 2004.
Next month, he returns to
Thailand for the 17th time. He,
his wife and other volunteers
from Venice and elsewhere
will help build schools in the
northern part of the country.
Since that first trip, Roscoe
and Jan Turner have complet-
ed 52 projects, carrying 97
suitcases of donated school
supplies and books, five kits of
medical supplies valued at
$26,000 each and 900 hand-
knit sweaters. They have spent
more than $166,000 for build-
ing materials for the various
schools, orphanages and clin-
ics they have helped to create.
Most of the money came
from donations, but they and
their fellow volunteers also


have given their time and the
cost of their airfare and other
personal expenses for each
trip.
In addition to building
schools and clinics, digging
latrines and installing roofs
and new plumbing, they have
helped volunteer dentists staff
dental clinics at seven schools,
taught English and helped
students and adults improve
their computer skills.
Their volunteer crew has
grown to 60 and has included
people and donors from Aus-
tralia, Canada, Hong Kong
and Thailand in addition to
Venice and elsewhere in the
United States.
While not specifically
under the umbrella of Rotary
International, the projects
have received help from
Turner's fellow Rotarians in
the United States and
Thailand. (He is a member of
the Sarasota Rotary Club.)
There have been three
matching grants from Rotary
International. More than
$55,000 was donated for
library books, furniture, com-
puters, dental equipment and
supplies. During the Turners'
most recent trip, in August,
the Suksasongkraw Hill Tribe
Boarding School in Mae Chan
was given 104 laptop comput-


ers funded by a Rotary grant.
Turner and some of the volun-
teers spent time training stu-
dents to use the computers.
Several are writing to
American pen pals. Turner
said more Americans are
needed to write to the chil-
dren.
Fellow Rotarians in
Thailand have helped secure
materials at the best prices
and expedited delivery to keep
the projects on schedule and
also have helped with the
transportation and lodging of
volunteers. Turner said Thai
volunteers living in the United
States also have donated time
and money "because you are
helping our children."
The agenda
Three projects are planned
for the December trip: a dor-
mitory in a boys secondary
school, a child-care center
and dormitories for children
in an elementary school.
At the Janjawa secondary
school, the plan is to build a
study hall, fix up existing
dorm rooms and improve the
bathrooms (tile and paint).
The estimated cost for materi-
als is 200,000 baht ($6,000).
The Tubkumontong Child
Care Center needs a new
building for some 30 preschool


Roscoe Turner, back to camera, meets with village leaders to discuss
plans and responsibilities for work at a local school in northern
Thailand that needed help.


children. It needs a large open
room, toilet and storage space
on the school grounds. The res-
idents began a building but ran
out of money and resources. It
can be finished for 185,000
baht ($5,600), and a donor has
been found. Turner said the
existing school is well main-
tained.
The elementary school's


director wants to build "fami-
ly" shelters to house groups of
a teacher and 10 children so
the children can learn to cook,
garden, fish and build and
gain self-respect in the pro-
cess. The school director has
the money for the first of the
six houses needed. Each

will cost some 80,000 baht, or
$2,500. Turner hopes his
group will build two houses
while there.
"The students will be a
major part of the work force
and learn as they go," Turner
said.
Dec. 21-24, dentists from
Australia, Thailand and the
United States will hold a den-
tal clinic for as many as 500
students at the Janjawa
school.
Classroom helpers are
needed to help children and
teachers learn correct English
pronunciation, syntax and
idioms. They also need help
with their computers.
The Thai do most of the
construction work them-
selves. Turner and his volun-
teers provide help as needed,
giving hints as to better ways
to do some things but also
learning the Thai way to do
some things.
"This is the first time they
have seen someone roll up
their sleeves and work side by
side with them," Turner said.
"They are surprised, and great
friendships are formed.
Working together goes a long
way to show the good side of
American people."

With less than a month
remaining to the sponsorship
deadline, high profile sponsor
positions are still available for
the 2010 Cattle Barons' Ball.
This annual American Can-
cer Society fundraiser has be-
come one of the premier
events of the year, attracting
hundreds of South County res-
idents and businesses to enjoy
an evening of western-style
entertainment while support-
ing the ACS local prevention
and treatment efforts.
The 2010 ball will take place
on Feb. 27 at the Plantation
Golf & Country Club, 500
Rockley Blvd., Venice.
"We are pleased once again
to have Joe and Diane Dom-
browski as our presenting

chair Kathy Lehner.
"They have been longtime
supporters of ACS efforts in
our community and are re-
turning as our presenting
sponsor for 2010."
Walmart is also a returning
sponsor, taking the Gold Star
position. Florida Cancer
Specialists, Classic Creations,

return it to you many times
over.'"

"We are closing our spon-

In addition to participating
as a sponsor, individuals and
organizations can also be

That chance you've been waiting
to take? Now is the time. Get a
running leap at it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It's
no surprise that you are so well-
liked. You know just the thing to
say to someone to make him or
her feel good. Your uncanny abil-
ity to sense what others want to
hear will be demonstrated.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).
You'll be running on
all cylinders. Don't for-
get that taking time
out for yourself is part
of moving forward. It's
likely that you'll do
your best thinking in the bath-
tub.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
You are experiencing a momen-
tary sense of uncertainty about
where you are headed and why.
Pull over for a second and check

never thought you'd make it, but
here you are. The trial is shrink-
ing in the distance behind you,
and that light you've been look-
ing for is closer than ever. Just a
little farther now.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).
You'll be making plans to invest
in your dreams. It will feel scary
- then again, you've done plen-
ty of scary things in your life
already. You're getting used to
housing butterflies in your stom-
ach.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You
put out a healing vibration.
Those who are in quiet pain, psy-
chic or otherwise, will gravitate
toward you. Although, it's likely
you won't even realize when
someone is made well by the
energy you emit.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
Drink plenty of water you'll be
sweating a bit. The stress you feel
is well-founded. You have a lot of
responsibilities to meet and
expectations to live up to. But
you won't get overwhelmed,
because you know how to priori-
tize.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.


21). You're so gregarious. You're
likely to attract shy or silent types
who need help expressing them-
selves. They will gravitate toward
you because your way of dealing
with things invites them to do
the same.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19). Everyone is quirky
and magical in some
way, though this week
your quirks are more
obvious than other
people's. They act up,
shout out, lean in and endear
others to you in the process.
You'll gain a fan or two.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
A challenge at home has you
looking in an unusual place for
answers. You were right to shift
your approach. You'll find what
you seek, and afterward, you'll
have another great tool in your
problem-solving toolbox.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A
growing sense of contentment
has been creeping up on you. You
will have a newfound awareness
of the necessary order of things.
This will bring a welcome peace
to you and those around you.


SPINAL PAIN?


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
You may suffer an accidental injury to your
spine and not know it until long after the
incident that caused it has been forgotten. It
may have happened during a period of
intense activity on the job, when you were
too busy to give it much thought. But if your
back has been injured, even in a minor way,
you will soon begin to feel pain and
discomfort. Sudden blows and jars to the
spine can cause injury. Back pain can be
caused by lifting, sprains or even the strain of


sitting or standing in one position for long
periods. If you slip or fall, it may provoke
laughter at the time, but not when pain makes
its presence known.
Any back problem or injury that is related
to your job is covered under the state's
workers' compensation law. This includes
treatment by a doctor of chiropractic. Without
resorting to drugs or surgery, your doctor of
chiropractic will use skilled manipulation and
other therapies to correct the spinal
misalignment.

Capt. Cook would be impressed


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Having been to a few of the
places visited by Capt. James
Cook, I got to thinking about
what it would be like to visit
all the places he did back in
the 18th century.
Looking at photos of the
Diamond Princess cruise ship
and reading about some of its
South Pacific itineraries, I
started thinking about Cook
again.
The travels of Cook first
intrigued me on my first trip
to Australia and New Zealand
about 20 years ago. It seemed
as though everywhere my
husband and I visited, Cook
had been there.
Of course, we were travel-
ing by air and staying in luxu-
ry hotels, while Cook born
in England in 1728 and credit-
ed with charting New Zealand
and the east coast of Australia
- traveled in a tiny sailing
ship, ate more hard tack than
anyone should and probably
never saw an inn, let alone a
Ritz-Carlton, Regent or Pen-
insula.

meters in length, carries 2,700
passengers in the lap of luxu-
ry. Powered by gas turbines
and diesel electric engines, the
ship will be cruising the
waters around Australian and
New Zealand this fall and win-
ter, giving its passengers one
of the most luxurious ways to
visit many of Cook's ports of
call.
Tall tales
While Cook's ship would
have had no trouble sailing
into Sydney Harbor or even
up to the Rocks where Britain
dropped shiploads of convicts
who eventually created that
wonderful city, the Diamond
cannot sail beneath the
Sydney Harbor Bridge. Its 18
decks mean it is some 12 feet
taller than the road deck of
the bridge. It is about 12 feet
shorter than the tallest point
on the Sydney Opera House.
The ship also is too tall to
sail under the Gateway Bridge
into Brisbane and at Cairns
will tower over the Cairns
International Hotel where I
stayed on that first trip and
again about five years ago
when I returned with my
daughter, Heidi.
The explorer learned about
navigation in the North Sea. I
managed to see the North Sea
on my first trip to Scotland, a
year after that trip to the
South Pacific. I saw it from a
spot across the street from the
"Old Course" at St. Andrew's
and then again from a train
that skirted the northeast
coast of Great Britain as Heidi
and I headed from
Edinborough to Nottingham,
England. I was happy to be on
a comfortable train rather

than Cook's small sailing ship.
By then I had learned that
Cook had served in the Royal
Navy, was in the Seven Years
War and participated in sur-
veying the St. Lawrence River
before leading his first expedi-
tion to Rio de Janeiro in South
America and around South
America's Cape Horn toward
Tahiti, the East Indies (today's
Indonesia) and eventually
around the Cape of Good
Hope, near the southernmost
point of Africa.
I have sailed the St.
Lawrence River, skirting many
of its Thousand Islands, and I
did get to Rio a few years ago,
probably flew over Tahiti
when returning to Australia
and also have been to Bali in
Indonesia a few times. Despite
that, I have not covered the
entire east coast of Australia,
visited the Cook Islands or vis-
ited Antarctica or Africa yet.
Cook's three-year cruise
brought him back to England
in 1771.
At that point, he had
already been to far more
places than I am likely to visit
in the next 50 years.
Wedding bells
Checking out some of the
Diamond's itineraries, I found
one that is nearly a month
long and literally sails around
Australia from Sydney. Since I
classify Sydney as at least a
five-day city, I would spend a
few days there before and
after the cruise. The other
stops are long enough to at
least do the most important


things for each area.
At Port Douglas, a ride on
the Quicksilver high-speed
catamaran to its mooring on
the Great Barrier Reef is a
must. Princess offers such a
day trip and the time to do it.
At Cairns there is plenty of
time to stroll the city or even
to visit the nearby rainforest
skyride attraction outside of
town.
For the days at sea, there is
plenty to do onboard. In addi-
tion to all the usual night-
clubs, bars and pools, there is
what Princess says is the
largest Internet cafe afloat, an
Asian-inspired Lotus spa, a
mini-golf course and even a
wedding chapel.
According to Princess, the
line's wedding-at-sea program
is the only one that allows
couples to be married in inter-
national waters by the ship's
captain as they could be on
the old "Love Boat" TV show.
That show was filmed on
Princess ships in the 1970s
and 1980s.
More than half the cabins
have balconies, which makes
for great sightseeing along
scenic coasts whether the ship
is skirting Australia or ventur-
ing into the waters of Alaska
as it also has done and likely
will do again in the future.
Jewels
Keeping up with Cook can
be a life's work.
Not only did the man
return to Australia and New
Zealand but he explored the
waters of Antarctica and dis-


The Dawn Princess sails the waters off Alaska.


covered several groups of
islands in the South Pacific.
After the second expedition,
Cook became a member of
the Royal Society and, in 1776,
as America declared its inde-
pendence from Cook's home
country, he set out to find the
so-called Northwest Passage,
seeking it from the Pacific
toward the Bering Sea where
ice blocked his way. Heading
back toward the South Pacific,
Cook was killed in the
Hawaiian islands. It was 1779
and Capt. Cook had been
around the world by ship at
least three times.
Princess has 17 ships,
including the Diamond and
the Sapphire. It offers seven to


107-day sailings to all seven
continents and is part of
Carnival Corp.
Princess offers several
Caribbean itineraries each fall
and winter from Fort
Lauderdale aboard the Crown

season, the Coral Princess,

It's my little slice of heaven


JOE GIORGIANNI
HUMOR COLUMNIST


Two days ago my wife
asked for something of
which I have no recollec-
tion. In fact, I'm not too
sure if it was two days
ago, or even if it was my
wife who asked me. But
that's not the point of this
little story.
This story is about the
area in which the item I
was supposed to find was
located. I'm talking about
my office, or the dun-
geon, as my wife calls it.
A place where I can find
any piece of paper, book
or paper clip within five
to seven weeks. A place
where no man, woman
or child dare go without
first donning hardhat,
steel-toed shoes and eye
protection.
When I set up my little
dungeon ... err, office ... I
kept in mind that I would
need privacy. I like priva-
cy as it allows me to be
alone, which is kind of
like private. I think better


when I am not interrupt-
ed by the likes of radios
blaring, people talking or
kids playing.
My office is very quiet
and dark. I like dark main-
ly because it is better for
little naps between spo-
radic thoughts. There's no
time wasted blocking
out light, the evil neme-
sis of the sandman.
I have shelves on
every wall in my office.
They hold my treasured
books and photographs
of my favorite people.
Also on the walls hang
framed photographs of
other people for whom I
have great admiration -
Walter Conkrite and Don
Knotts, to name a couple.
I also have a huge pho-
tograph of the Three
Stooges holding golf
clubs, inviting me to
"Golf with my Friends."
"The Thinker," by
Rodin, sits among a large
pile of papers, books and
CDs. I like looking at this
statue while typing. It
doesn't make me type
any faster, or more error
free, but it looks good
and makes a good im-
pression when anyone
enters my domain.
In a special book I
have every column I have
ever written. For more
than six years I wrote my
weekly column for this
paper without ever miss-
ing a deadline. That is


more than 300 columns.
Yeah, I know, by now
some of you are proba-
bly wondering, how in
the heck could that guy
be so dang funny week
after week? Well, it wasn't
always so easy. Some-
times I really had to put
the ole thinking cap on.
Then, I watched the
evening news, particu-
larly the national news,
and replenished my sup-
ply of stupid things to
write about.
A couple of months
back a virus invaded my
computer. No doubt it
came from one of the
many sites that I visit
each day.
Unfortunately, this
particular virus was very
nasty and wiped out my
entire hard drive, and I
lost everything I had
ever saved. Fortunately, I
had backed up most
things, including my
columns, but lost almost
everything else.
My point here is to tell
you to be careful about
opening strange things
on your computer and
when you have some-
thing that you want to
save, either write it down,
print it out or back it up
on a floppy or CD-ROM.
It was not a pretty sight
to see me crying over
Rodin's statue. But, all is

BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

There is a principle of
logic known as Occam's
razor also called the
law of parsimony that
states, generally, that
simple explanations are
more likely to be accu-
rate than complicated
ones. Or, for the sensorily
oriented among you,
"When you hear the
sound of hoof beats,
think horses, not zebras."
Call me naive, but
that's the way my mind
works. So I have a twisted
fascination with all the
Internet chatter sur-
rounding two seemingly
unrelated subjects: the
swine flu vaccine and the
shootings at Fort Hood.
Now, I'm not a doctor
- I don't even play one
here so I don't know if
the swine flu vaccine is
safe, medically speaking.
A lot of people who
ought to know say it is,
and a bunch of people
who ought to know say it
might not be.
I and a lot of people I
know have had a lot of
vaccines including
one for the swine flu in
the mid-'70s and I
don't know of anyone
who has suffered any
consequences demon-
strably attributable to


one.
There are people who
say they've suffered a
permanent injury caused
by a vaccine, though I
don't know if that's been
proved. The timing itself
isn't enough a rooster's
crowing doesn't cause
the sun to rise, though he
might think so.
There is a lot of con-
troversy about an alleged
link between vaccines
and autism, with studies
on both sides. Unless and
until the question is
clearly answered, parents
face a painful dilemma.
But none of that sug-
gests to me that the cur-
rent program to inocu-
late people against the
swine flu is just a cover-
up of an effort to further
a one-world, proto-
socialist, quasi-fascist,
big government, secret
government conspiracy
to deprive us of our civil
liberties, take away our
guns and herd us all into
compounds like sheep.
Mind you, I don't know
that it's not, it just isn't
the simplest, most logical
explanation. That's how
some people see it,
though.
And the same motiva-
tion is thought by some
to be behind the shoot-
ing rampage of an Army
psychiatrist at Fort Hood.

The "official" explana-
tion, they say, might be
that Maj. Nidal Malik
Hasan cracked because
he had received orders
for deployment to
Afghanistan, but the
truth is that he was an
expert in psychological
operations for the gov-
ernment and that an
experiment backfired.
Could be, but the direct
route from Point A to
Point B can't be rejected
out of hand.
Maybe that swine flu
shot I got in 1976 was just
an injection of Kool-Aid,
but I can't mentally rec-
oncile a government that
seems only sporadically
competent with the abil-
ity to organize the sort
of secret, widespread,
multi-tentacled, multi-
layered program other
people give it credit for.
I know, I know the
appearance of incompe-
tence is part of the cover-
up.
Just like this column.

Students visit Jewish Center of Venice


BY JUDITH ZANGWILL
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN

Dr. Woody McCree, State College of
Florida professor of religion and philoso-
phy, brought an enthusiastic group of col-
lege students to the Jewish Center of
Venice recently.
JCV Cantor Marci Vitkus presented
information about the Jewish Center
specifically, and Judaism in general, as
the students of McCree's Religion in
Contemporary Society class listened
attentively.
Vitkus discussed the great diversity of
belief and practice within the Jewish reli-
gion. She then demonstrated some of the
religious objects in the JCV sanctuary and
described some of the worship cere-
monies used by the JCV congregation.
The students asked insightful and
thought provoking questions, and an
interesting interfaith discussion took
place among the students, Vitkus and
several other JCV members who also
attended.
The students were able to ascend the
Bimah platform to observe the Eternal
Light and Holy Ark, as Vitkus opened the
Torah scroll, hand-inscribed on parch-
ment, which contains the first five books
of the Old Testament Bible. Reading the
Torah aloud in Hebrew, with accompany-

'La Traviata' chorus and

costumes were winners


CHIP LUDLOW
ARTS REVIEWER


Giuseppe Verdi's "La
Traviata," under the
musical direction of the
opera's artistic director
Victor DeRenzi, was the
Sarasota Opera's fall pro-
duction in the renovated
opera house.
The Sarasota Opera
orchestra with DeRenzi
at its helm offered shim-
mering and full-bodied
musical support for this
story of a Parisian wom-
an kept by her wealthy
lovers. The opera is based
on the play, "The Lady of
the Camellias" by Alex-
andre Dumas fils. In this
story, La Traviata (Vio-
letta), or the woman who
has gone astray, is suffer-
ing from tuberculosis. It
relates her encounters
with the Baron Douphol,
one of her lovers, and
Alfredo Germont, some-
one whom she could
really love. Complica-
tions arise when Ger-
mont's father comes and
demands that Violetta
give up his son because
her reputation is ruining
the chances that his
daughter can marry. Vio-
letta writes a note to
Alfredo saying that she is
leaving him. After read-
ing the note and in a jeal-
ous rage, he encounters
the Baron at a ball, is
challenged by him to a
duel and although nei-
ther is killed, the Baron is
wounded and Alfredo
goes abroad. When the
elder Germont finally
understands the true sit-
uation, he offers his ex-
cuses to Violetta. Alfredo
arrives but it is too late as
Violetta dies.
There were many pos-


itive elements in this pro-
duction. As always, the
chorus was well rehears-
ed and was rich in tone
and involved in the
action taking place on
stage. The ball scene was
particularly good with
the gypsies and palm
reading. The costumes
were fine in detail and
the sets were stunning
with chandeliers, cande-
labras and fireplaces. The
exception was the coun-
try house set, which
appeared flimsy by com-
parison.
The singing at the Nov.
5 performance was
inconsistent. As Violetta,
Lina Tetriani looked the
part and offered a work-
man-like performance.
Her voice was clear and
strong but didn't obtain
the brilliance one could
have hoped for. She
missed some passing
notes and occasionally
failed to hold a vocal line.
Her "Sempre Libri" was a
highlight, but the off-
stage voice of Alfredo was
too faint for a connection
between the lovers to be
established.
As Alfredo, Edgar Er-
mesto Ramirez was dis-
appointing. His acting
was wooden and plod-
ding and his voice was
not always pleasing with
its nasal tone and missed
notes. Scenes in which
he wished to show his
love and affection for
Violetta were awkward.
Marco Nisticb was
strong as Alfredo's father
and he and Tetriani were
impressive in their duet.
The Studio and Ap-
prentice Artists sang
their minor roles well.
The Sarasota Opera's
winter season begins
Feb. 6 with the double
bill of "Cavalleria rusti-
cana" and "Pagliacci"
and continues with "The
Magic Flute," "Hansel
and Gretel" and "Giovan-
na d'Arco" (Joan of Arc).

formances and tickets

Original owner 360,000-mile 'Vette


W en I think of
high-mileage
classic cars,
there is a 1966 Corvette
Stingray Coupe right
here in Charlotte
County. This auto has
360,000 on it the
highest of any vehicle
I've personally seen,
other than a promo-
tional Volvo that visited
dealers.
The 'Vette belongs to
Jack and Gladys
Fawsett, residents of
Port Charlotte, formerly
from Oxon Hill, Md.
Their story is a familiar
one, moving to the
Sunshine State mainly
for the weather, the
distaste for raking
leaves, tired of the snow
and to be near friends
in 1996.
This couple
purchased the 'Vette on
Aug. 26, 1966, after
debating about being
able to afford the sticker
price of $4,971.82. At
that time they had two
children, John and
Gayle, plus the usual
expenses young couples
had. Jack did some
fancy sweet talking to
convince Gladys they
could make the $115
payments each month
for three years. Luckily
an unexpected pay raise
came through and took
care of that matter.
The following infor-
mation was provided to
me by the Fawsetts. It's

SUN PHOTO BY LEE ROYSTON


Jack and Gladys Fawsett of Port Charlotte are proud owners of this trophy blue 1966 Corvette.


headlights; trophy blue
exterior paint with dark
blue interior.
Other tidbits:
Fawsett's Stingray was
the 26,747th of 27,720
built in 1966; the
4,861st body out of
4,994 assembled by the
A.O. Smith plant in
Iona, Mich. A total of
9,755 Stingrays were
built in 1966 with 327-
cubic-inch, 300 HP
engines; 80 percent of
the Stingrays built in
1966 had four-speed
transmissions.
According to Jack:
"I equipped the
Stingray with a Rally
computer (a tripled
Tommy Box, personally
made) and competed
regularly in local and
national time-speed-
distance and gimmick
rallies. Gladys drove,
Jack navigated. We
advanced to Master
Class in about two
years. Found we had
reached the limit of our
capabilities, and for the
next 10 to 12 years
enjoyed competing with
our fantastic sports car,


winning trophies here
and there, having a
wonderful time, making
lots of friends and
accepting the fact that,
though we would never
consistently beat the
best, we drove the best
- our 1966 Stingray.
"My attempts to
autocross were unsuc-
cessful either I lacked
the talent or I just didn't
want to push the car
that hard. Others could
take the car and do
quite well.
Unfortunately, son John
wasn't one of them
either, and the
autocross experiment
became limited to
perfunctory participa-
tion in our sports car
club's (The Southeast
Sports Car Association)
annual Championship
Autocross.
"I drove the Stingray
daily to and from work
in downtown
Washington, at Bailey's
Crossroads, Rosslyn, the
Pentagon and Crystal
City, until my
retirement from the
Department of Defense


in 1988. We then built a
garage.
"I renovated the
Stingray from 1991 to
1994 in the new garage.
MAACO did the strip-
ping to fiberglass,
fiberglass repair and
current paint job in
1993. The engine was
rebuilt in 1987 at the
325,000 mile mark.
Installed the third air-
conditioning unit in
2008. Had seats
reupholstered in 2007
by Junior's Auto Sales
and Trim in Venice.
"In '07-'08 Marty
Buck of Buck's Master
Car Care in North Port
installed a four-barrel
Holley with an electric
choke, hooked up the
air conditioner and
reconfigured the engine
compartment. Marty
also did the engine
tuning and the engine
purrs!
"The Stingray is
currently used for
cruising around the
local area and for 'Good
Guy' cruises to regional
events in Jacksonville
and Charlotte, as well as


participating in Veteran
Motor Car Club of
America events in
Charlotte County. Has
cruised about 360,000
miles.
"The most common
question is 'What year is
it?' and we show them
the license tag 6T6
GEM and it is!"
What a remarkable
couple and the history
of what became a
mechanical family
member.

CHRIS PORTER
To all our winter
friends who are just
arriving back in town,
we'd like to welcome you
with open arms!
The purpose of this first-
ever section of the Sun is to
recap the happenings of the
last few months for our
seasonal visitors and the
locals, like me, whose
memory doesn't work the
way it used to!
For instance, the last thing
you may recall is how we
were enjoying Spring
Training with the Tampa
Bay Rays while wondering if
the Laishley Crab House in
Punta Gorda would open
before you got back to town.
But while the Rays didn't
have what you would call a
great season this summer,
we had lots of fun with the
Charlotte Stone Crabs, who
came in second in the
Florida State League in an
exciting playoff. Plus,
Laishley's opened up and is
having a great season as
well.
In August, we recognized
the fifth anniversary of
Hurricane Charley in a big
way. Folks who haven't been
here in a while are amazed
to see the comeback that
Arcadia, Port Charlotte and
especially Punta Gorda have
made since that awful day.
The "Xtreme Makeover"
party Aug. 15 in Punta
Gorda marked the occasion
with a full day of music and
fun in Laishley Park, capped
with a wonderful fireworks
show over the Peace River.
Speaking of makeovers,
we've been busy at the Sun,
working hard to make your


LOOK WHAT YOU MISSED AUTUMN 2009


Welcome back, and



look what you missed


newspaper better all the
time.
In May, we rolled out a
revamped version the Punta
Gorda Herald. Long-time
editor Gordon Bower now
has more pages and lots
more color for pictures, and
we've added more regular
features and columns than I
can name here.
The Punta Gorda Herald
looked so good, we had to
apply the same model to
our weekly Port Charlotte
Herald. We have a new
editor of that product, Laura
Schmid, who is in charge of
this new spiffed-up weekly
paper that debuted in July.
On Oct. 1, we unveiled
our return to the weekly
edition of The Arcadian,
available to our readers in
DeSoto County. The new
section and has been a big
hit with readers who can
continue to get a daily Sun
while reading a concen-
trated local paper on
Thursday.
The next major redesign
was our Let's Go! entertain-
ment section, which came
out in October as well. Editor
Marie Merchant worked all
summer with our best
designers to come out with
an interesting and informa-
tion-packed section that you
must read before planning
your weekend of fun.
One more thing if
you're looking for comic
strips, Dear Abby, puzzles,
horoscopes, Dr. Donohue or
daily TV and movie listings,
they've been moved to the
daily Classified section. If
you count the puzzle in Our
Town and the two in
Classified, we are the only
daily paper I know about
that offers three crossword

Judge to decide if Michael King gets

death for killing Denise Amber Lee

Slain woman's widower still fighting for 911 reform LEE

By ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH .'
NORTH PORT
COMMUNITY NEWS EDITOR
Jurors sat quietly as they ,.
listened to words from the
grave. "I'm sorry, I just want '
to go. I want to see my i
family. Please let me go.
Please, oh God, help me."
The plea for help was part
of a frantic six-minute 911
call made by Denise Amber
Lee as she was trapped in the
back of Michael King's green
Camaro on Jan. 17, 2008,
after being raped, said
Assistant State Attorney Lon
Arend. He began his opening
statement in King's capital
murder trial on Aug. 24 with
Lee's cries to be freed so she
could return to her North
Port home to be with her
husband and two babies.
The trial for the 21-year-
old's killer lasted three
weeks. The first week, King,
38, sat still for nearly eight
hours each day staring
ahead at potential jurors.
He rarely shifted in his
chair or moved at all.
The judge ordered 500
residents originally to
appear for jury duty in the
trial which was whittled
down to 100 and finally 12
jurors and four alternates.
The Sarasota courtroom
was full most days with
Denise's husband Nathan
Lee, his parents (Mark and
Peggy), Denise's parents
(Rick and Susan Goff) and
other family. Members of FILE PHOTO
the foundation created in A jury convicted Michael
Denise's name to help fix King of kidnapping, raping

giously attended each day North Port mother. The same

sentenced in December.

FROM PAGE 4
Deno Economou wouldn't
allow more than one
camera or photographer in
the courtroom. Every day,
all entering had to leave
their cell phones and other
electronic equipment
outside the courtroom


doors and pass through two
metal detectors. There were
several bailiffs surrounding
King, Rick Goff and Nathan
Lee, and sometimes
more during the introduc-
tion of graphic evidence
and the verdict.
The trial took several
twists and turns as Arend
said King was acting like he
was in a "catatonic state,"


during the trial yet acted
"normal" when he was
questioned by police
investigators on the night of
the murder.
The trial was halted as
the judge had two medical
experts evaluate him to
determine if King was
competent to continue
with the trial. Experts
concluded King had a low


IQ but was competent.
On Aug. 26, King's
attorneys suggested that
King's friend who was at the
gun range with him on the
morning of the murder may
have shot Denise in the
head. King's friend denied
the allegations. Attorneys
also said King believed Lee

The Charlotte County Commission
has approved a speed limit increase
to 55 mph along most ofVeterans

to Loveland boulevards. The speed
limit will remain 45 mph from U.S.
41 to Cochran Boulevard, and 35
mph from Loveland Boulevard to

County Administrator Roger Baltz
said there will be various land-

DASH closed due to lack of funds


STAFF REPORT
ENGLEWOOD (Originally reported
May 16) Domestic Abuse Shelter
Homes, which served 1,700 victims in
Charlotte, Sarasota and DeSoto coun-
ties in the last year, has closed due to
lack of funding.
The nonprofit has officially dissolved
and has been turning away clients at its
two former locations in Englewood and
North Port.
Former DASH Executive Director
John Pesare said delays in state funding
and dwindling contributions from
private donors forced the closing.
The organization offered ongoing
support with rent, electric bills, food
and transportation for domestic abuse
victims, sometimes for up to three years.
Other area organizations offer emer-
gency help to abuse victims, including
Center for Abuse and Rape Emergencies
and Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center
Inc. But DASH filled a niche for ongoing
assistance for people once the emer-
gency had passed, Pesare said.
Four DASH employees have been laid
off and "1,700 people a year have
nowhere to go," Pesare said. "This is a


big deal in the community."
DASH operated on a budget of
$230,000 in the last fiscal year, with
grants from Sarasota County and the
Gulf Coast Community Foundation
accounting for about 30 percent of the
money, Pesare said.
The rest came from private, church
and civic donations. U

Englewood Water District celebrates legacy


Englewood Water District celebrates legacy


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

ENGLEWOOD (Originally
reported June 12) The
Englewood Water District
has come a long way from
its "Wild West" days 50
years ago.
EWD employees, district
supervisors, former super-


visors and others gathered
to celebrate the district's
50th anniversary.
Providing clean potable
water might seem a placid
goal to achieve, but in an
area where well water
would dye white clothing
yellow after one washing, it
wasn't.
"Everything we did was


blood and guts," Mac
Horton recalled. His
political career started as
an EWD supervisor from
1972 to 1975.
Englewood divided over
those who wanted water
and those who wanted the
community to stay the
same.
But having gone through


all of its struggles, Dave
Moore, executive director of
the Southwest Florida
Water Management
District, said the EWD has
exemplified forward
thinking and "five decades
of excellence".
"The (EWD) has been on
the cutting edge of conser-
vation," he said. U

Shooter gets 35 years in 2004 slaying


STAFF REPORT
PUNTA GORDA
(Originally reported July 1)
- The man convicted of
gunning down 26-year-old
Jewaun Platt in 2004 will
spend a good portion of his
life behind bars.
Michel Thomas was
sentenced to 35 years in
prison.
Thomas, 32, was found
guilty of second-degree
murder in April, after
witnesses linked him to the
June 1, 2004, shooting death


of Platt, a former star athlete
at Charlotte High School.
Witnesses told the court
the shooting was the result
of an argument Platt had
earlier that afternoon with
ex-girlfriend Kimesha Hill.
The feud escalated, and
Hill called Thomas from a
nearby pay phone and told
him to "take care of (Platt),"
court documents stated.
Thomas, along with Fort
Myers residents Emanuel
Edmondson and Leatric
Reid, drove a white Dodge


Dakota to Punta Gorda. Platt
was chased down the street,
where multiple witnesses
say a man, later identified as
Thomas, pursued him with
a 9 mm handgun.
A total of five people have
been convicted in the
shooting death.
Edmondson pleaded no
contest to aggravated assault
with a deadly weapon and
was sentenced to six months
in jail, followed by three
years of probation. He since
has died.


Hill and her sister, Latera,
both entered similar pleas
to a felony charge of
aggravated assault with a
deadly weapon, and
received five years of
probation apiece.
Reid, the driver of the
vehicle, was sentenced to
three years in prison,
followed by 10 years of
probation, after pleading in
2005 to a charge of acces-
sory after the fact. He was
released from prison in
June 2007. U


No fireworks:

Dark Fourth hits

Englewood Beach


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
ENGLEWOOD (Originally
reported July 8) A beach
day is a beach day.
But without the Englewood
Jaycees staging the annual
Fourth of July fireworks show
at Blind Pass Beach, the day
ended early in Englewood
over the holiday.
As a result, many
Englewood restaurants did
not do the amount of
business they normally do
on an Independence Day
weekend.
"It did have an impact,"
saidValinda Mason, hostess
at the Lock N' Key restaurant
on Englewood Beach.
Christin Morrow, a spokes-
woman for the Englewood
Cape Haze Area Chamber of
Commerce, said that she
received "numerous"
inquiries about the annual
fireworks show.
There was disappoint-
ment, she said, when she
had to tell callers that this
year there would be no
fireworks to light up the sky.


Traditionally, for more
than a decade, the
Englewood Jaycees staged
the annual Independence
Day fireworks show and,
later, the Pioneer Days
celebration and parade over
the Labor Day weekend.
This year, however, the
Jaycees said that after losing
$4,000 two years ago and
$6,000 last year, they no
longer can afford to shoot off
$8,000 to $10,000 fireworks.
In addition, they had to pay
$1,000 for a $3 million
insurance policy to shoot off
the fireworks from Alexander
Point at Blind Pass Beach.
"We received a lot of calls,"
said Charlie Bush, a longtime
Jaycees member and events
organizer. "But people
understood."
Bush said he and the other
Jaycees would be willing to
work with anyone who wants
to do the fundraising to
ensure that on next year's
July 4th Englewood's night
sky will be filled with a
rocket's red glare and
fireworks bursting in air. U

Punta Gorda's ultimate parking garage opens


By GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER
PUNTA GORDA
(Originally reported July 23)
- Mark Fanstill, the owner
of Caf6 Ruelle in downtown
Punta Gorda, said he felt a
bit of a thrill as he drove up a
ramp into his city's brand
new multi-story parking
garage for the first time
Wednesday morning.


"It's kind of exciting," he
said. "It's kind of a show
piece. It's a gorgeous
building."
With its eclectic town-
house-like facades and
brick-and-palm landscaped
alleys, the Herald Court
Centre is so attractive, it's
already inspiring some
neighboring property
owners, including the owner


of the building he leases, to
talk about upgrading their
own courtyards and
entrance ways, he said.
"For us, this (Herald Court
Centre) is our front door," he
said.
After some 13 months
of construction, the
$14.5 million center was
granted a certificate of
occupancy and is now open
for free public parking.
The project was launched
both to meet current needs
for more parking and to spur
redevelopment within the
city's Community
Redevelopment District, said
Vice Mayor Harvey
Goldberg.
Construction began June
13, 2008. OAK completed the
job six days ahead of
deadline.
The CRA envisioned a
parking garage that "didn't
look like a parking garage,"


Goldberg recalled.
To create it, architect Steve
Padgett Jr. of the Bradenton
firm Fawley Bryant
Architects first explored
downtown.
"I walked three city blocks
and evaluated color, signage,
brick pavers, benches,
anything we could, so this
structure would become
part of the surrounding
environment," he said.
The structure was
designed with two buildings
separated by bridges to
break up the visual impact,
he said.
The alley between the two
buildings was designed to
form a pedestrian connec-
tion to an existing alley
across the street, he said.
"That existing alleyway, it
has light fixtures, little
benches and a sculpture,"

STAFF REPORT
BOCA GRANDE (Originally reported

There was a boat, about 50
yards away, wobbling furi-

aboard tried to distribute
their weight to all sides of the
vessel in hopes of keeping it
balanced.
It was about 2 p.m.
Saturday, and most of the CAMERON

Cameron watched as the boat capsized,
spilling the three fishermen into the water.
The Charlotte County sheriff, who had

Within minutes, the three were on
Cameron's boat, soaked but safe.

STAFF REPORT
MURDOCK (Originally

four terms and nearly 15
years as a Charlotte County
commissioner, Adam
Cummings announced
Tuesday that he will not
seek a new term.
"I need a new challenge,"
the 44-year-old Cummings
said. What that challenge is
remains to be seen since he
said he has no particular
plans for what he'll do next.
He said that he felt now was
the time to announce his
decision to allow others to
step forward and run for
the District 2 commission
seat.
Before his commission


days,
Cummings
served as a
third mate on
an oil drilling
ship and
ammunition
freighter and
as a lieutenant CUMMINGS
