Plan emerges to eliminate city boards


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

The Environmental Task
Force and Public Arts Task
Force are among those city
staff are recommending be
allowed to expire under a plan
unveiled earlier this month.
Staff are also recommend-
ing the Architectural Review
Board, which has struggled
lately to draft a revised city
code to help enforce city
design standards, be merged
into the planning commission
and be renamed the Planning
and Architectural Review Com-
mission. The new board could
possibly include three mem-
bers from the current Planning
Commission, three from the
ARB, and one member from
the Environmental Task Force.
Some functions of the Envi-


ronmental Task Force, which
expires in February, will be
merged into the Historic Pres-
ervation Board and Parks and
Recreation Board.
The Public Arts Task Force,
which expires in May, would
be merged with the Historic
Preservation Board and recon-
figured into the Historic Pres-
ervation and Public Art Board.
Staff are recommending the
board consist of three mem-
bers from the retired Public Art
Task Force and four members
from the retired Historic Pres-
ervation Board.
The Parks and Recreation
board would be reconfigured
into a new board called the
Parks and Recreation Environ-
mental Board.
The Economic Development
Task Force, which struggled for
three years to gain favor with


former Mayor Ed Martin, will
continue on. It was scheduled
to expire in April.
Holic asked staff to evaluate
the boards for duplication of
functions, whether they can be
combined with other boards or
commissions or accomplished
by staff, whether they can be
eliminated without adversely
impacting the city, if they
require intensive staff support,
and whether their functions
"unnecessarily complicate the
review process prior to going
to council."
Nancy Woodley, assis-
tant city manager, and Tom
Slaughter, general manager
of development services, met
with city council members
who act as liaisons of the ex-
isting task forces and reviewed
their functions and the coun-
cil criteria for keeping them


before coming up with their
recommendations.
Woodley said the ARB and
planning commission "each
share similar functions and
meeting frequency."
"An examination of the code
of ordinances finds similar
duties. Each administers two
architectural overlay dis-
tricts and each meets twice a
month."
What appears to have sealed
the decision is the lack of work
for each board.
"Within the past two years,
more than half of each re-
spective board's regularly
scheduled meeting have been
canceled due to lack of de-
velopment review petitions,"
Woodley said.
The ARB board had difficulty
in board member attendance
and maintaining a quorum,


according to the memo.
Slaughter said additional
public input provided through
its Partnering 4 Success initia-
tive identified processing
delays of up to a month.
"Our user groups considered
these delays to be too costly
in light of any value-added
contribution," Slaughter said.
"Application materials for site
plans, building architectural
elevations and drawing and
material samples, which typi-
cally cost thousands of dollars
for each board, were also iden-
tified as a financial burden."
Woodley said the consolida-
tion should reduce red tape in
city operations.
Also recommended for
elimination is the Citizens
Stormwater Committee, which

T.J. Maxx robbers get 8 years


By BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Judge Rochelle Curly
sentenced T.J. Maxx
robbers James Rogers,
23, and Joshua Rose, 20,
to eight years in prison
in December. The third
member of the rob-
ber/kidnapping team,
Matthew Graffin, who
worked at the store, orig-
inally was interviewed
as a victim. Later he told
the truth and agreed to
testify against Rogers and
Rose.
Graffin had worked at
T.J. Maxx for three years
and had family members
who worked there as
well, while Rose had just
started working in the
stock room.
Sarasota County Sheriff
Tom Knight said the
sentence sent a strong
message that people who
commit these types of
crimes will pay the price.
"We were extremely
pleased with the sen-
tence," he said. "If they
had gone to trial, they
were facing the possibil-
ity of 10 years to life in
prison. This was a good
sentence for a plea. It is
fair and firm."
On the night of Nov. 17,
2009, at 9:30 p.m., Rogers
and Rose, wearing Darth
Vader masks and carry-
ing guns, entered the T.J.
Maxx store in the Sweet-
bay Plaza in Venice as it
was closing. They bran-
dished guns and ordered
workers and shoppers to
the floor before fleeing
out the back door. This
was after store employee
Graffin left the front
door unlocked for the

Robbers of this T.J. Maxx in Venice were sentenced in December for their crimes. The incident, in
which hostages were briefly taken, took place in November 2009.


two men. They didn't get
away with any property
or money.
The Venice Police
Department and the
Sarasota County Sher-
iff's Office responded
to the scene. Hundreds
of bystanders gathered
to watch the scene play
out and were present
to cheer when at 1:30
a.m. more than 20 SWAT
team members left the
building signaling an
end to the situation.
Rose and Graffin,
who acted like victims,
returned to work in the
days following the crime
along with their fellow
employees until Graffin
decided to tell the truth


in exchange for a lighter
sentence.
All three were charged
with three counts of
armed kidnapping with in-
tent to commit or facilitate
a felony robbery with a
firearm or deadly weapon.
It was later learned the
guns they had were fake.
Graffin had no prior
criminal record. Rose
had a minor theft charge
and Rogers had a minor
possession charge.
VPD detective Alex
Gregoire said when the
three were arrested,
Graffin seemed remorse-
ful and Rose and Rogers
seemed resigned.
When Graffin identi-
fied Rogers and Rose as


his accomplices, he told
detectives the robbery
plan was hatched to get
money for rent.
Early on, detectives
believed the incident was
an inside job. Echoing
Knight, Venice Police
Department Capt. Tom
McNulty said the sen-
tence was just.
"Their sentence is
a successful conclu-
sion to an unfortunate
incident," he said. "This
case involved a team
effort between area law
enforcement and showed
the great relationship
between VPD and other
agencies in the county."

Pineapples


found compliant


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

The city of Venice
building department still
isn't happy with the color
of Pineapples Restaurant,
but at least its owner can
rest easier now that the
city has concluded it met
all city codes when it
renovated the building.
Staff were ordered to
conduct an audit of all
the costs involved in
sprucing up the former
Landmark Restaurant
building after complaints
surfaced over it not
meeting the city's color
palette.
Building department
staff were then directed
to look into whether the
building rehab proj-
ect met city code. The
structure is considered
nonconforming within
the city's Historic and
Venetian Theme Districts
and thus the sum of its


exterior alterations can-
not exceed 50 percent of
the value of the exterior,
according to city code.
General Manager of
Development Services
Tom Slaughter said after
reviewing records and
canceled checks, the
amount spent on exterior
alterations came well
within the 50 percent
rule.
As far back as June
the city had received a
2009 appraisal of the
property set at $445,000.
An early estimate from
the contractor, Gregg
Hassler, pegged the cost
of exterior alterations
to be $114,500. Owner
Tom Carney later made
some changes, including
ordering more expen-
sive awnings. In the end,
the alterations came to
$161,264, according to
public records.

Precious water
By MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER
After reading a publication recently put
out by the Sarasota County Extension Of-
fice, I was surprised to learn that rainfall in
Sarasota County does not make its way to the
utility's drinking water supply. A dense layer
of clay, called the Venice Clay Layer, prevents
rainwater from reaching our aquifers.
Rainfall in DeSoto and Highland counties
contributes to our drinking water aqui-
fers, primarily the Upper Floridan Aquifer.
Our surface water supplies, including Lake
Manatee and

River, depend
on rainfall
in Mana-
tee, DeSoto, IJ
Hardee and
Polk counties.
During this
time of year
when the tem-
peratures go
down, plants '
require less L 1.
water. From
December un-
til March, wa-
tering of lawns and plants should be reduced
to no more than once per week, or longer.
Watering less promotes deeper root sys-
tems that help resist the effects droughts.
Also, overwatering can cause pest or fungus
problems. This in turn can lead to increased
use of lawn chemicals which may be carried
by rain to streams and bays, damaging sensi-
tive ecosystems.
By using the right plant in the right loca-
tion, and selecting drought-tolerant trees,
shrubs and grasses, your landscape will be
able to more effectively survive our drought
cycles.
The planet - it's worth saving.

Credit GPS systems with geocache explosion


By CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

With the holiday season
at hand, the urge to renew
family traditions grows
powerful.
This year, however,
could be the year to start a
new holiday custom: Why
not try geocaching?
A modem-day, world-
wide version of trea-
sure hunting, the word
"geocaching" combines
"geo" for geography with
"caching," the act of hid-
ing a cache (rhymes with
stash and means the same
thing) in not-so-plain
sight, according to the Web
site www.geocaching.com.
Critical to geocaching
is the use of a global po-
sitioning system, or GPS,
unit. A GPS device takes
the latitude and longitude
coordinates for a particu-
lar geocaching site and
leads the player to the
area where the cache is
located. The simple act of
locating a site by satellite
technology becomes more
difficult because "due
north" might mean cross-
ing a creek, or "southwest"
could involve finding a
path through a thicket of
small trees or bushes.
Once there, the treasure
hunt really begins, because
the player or players need
to find the hidden cache.
That isn't always easy;
the container holding
the cache can run from
the simple to the simply
sneaky. A waterproof film
canister and an empty pre-
scription bottle are com-
mon choices, as are fake
water sprinklers and caps
for metal-fence stakes.
Players cannot overlook
natural elements in their
searches, either. That rock
in a pile of rocks could
be a fake, as could that
bump on a log. A walnut
or a pinecone lying on the
ground might be real or
bogus, as could that pile of


animal scat in the leaves
beneath an oak tree.
Typically, a container in-
cludes a log sheet or book
for finders to note the date
and time of their success-
ful quest. There could be
trinkets for players to take
with them or "travelers"
- tokens that get moved
from site to site. If you
take something, caching
etiquette requires you to
leave something of equal
or greater value.
In some ways, geo-
caching is hunting with,
the GPS system aside, a
player's brain the most
important tool. That ap-
pears to be the appeal
to 17-year-old Matthew
Dunn-Rankin ofVenice, a
Pine View School senior.
Matthew went out geo-
caching on a picture-per-
fect September afternoon
accompanied by his sister
Katie, 14, also a Pine View
student. The junket com-
bined some of his favorite
finds with a few new ones.
Later, they were joined
by Conrad Ciovica, 15, of
Venice, a PineView fresh-
man on his first geocaching
excursion. Conrad's sister,
10-year-old fifth-grader
Samara, also came along.
"(Geocaching) is one of
the neatest things you can
do anywhere," Matthew
said en route to a site in
Venice.
At one college town, he
said, he met a pilot who
had 5,000 geocaching
finds to his credit, a by-
product of his job. In one
instance, Matthew said,
the pilot found a master
lock box dangling over
water, comprising a cache
with "a neat name": cube
root 39.304. To open the
lock box, the pilot had to
use a combination - the
cube root of 39.304.
Katie talked of the "style"
of some caches by college
students. For example,
Massachusetts Institute of
Technology students use

she said.
Matthew said he has
gone geocaching in large
and small groups, including
his church youth council
and chaperoning adults. He
suggested being prepared
for the outdoors. In one in-
stance, a "King of the Hill"
cache site was shared by a
colony of red ants, which
cut short the hunt.
"I'll probably come back
at one point," he said, "but
better prepared."
Katie offered tips of her
own. She has learned not
to wear sandals and to
wear longer shorts.
There are a pair of
hindrances to geo-
caching: muggles and
groundskeepers.
Taken from J.K. Rowl-
ing's "Harry Potter" books,
muggles are nonwitches
or wizards. In the world of
geocaching, muggles are
nongeocachers. Players -
especially teenage ones
have to be stealthy in their
pursuits, for fear of calling
attention to themselves
and inviting a visit from
security personnel.
Another reason for
muggle watches is the
fact that caches have to
remain intact and incog-
nito. A muggle might not

Do not remove."
Matthew has incorpo-

travels. Earlier this year,
he found a "travel bug," a
wooden-cross necklace,
with a notation indicat-
ing it wanted to travel
the world and end up in
Ireland. Knowing that
he would be traveling to
England, Matthew said,


he held onto it for three to
four months.
"I wanted to put it in
London," he said.
On the last night of his
trip, he said, he found a
cache site big enough to

"It was an aerosol can

FPL theft
Two guys rob Florida
Power and Light of some
of it's copper, but sur-
render and
cooperate
when police
catch them
in the act.
Accord-
ing to the
Venice Police
BYRDTITUS Department
Report, on
Thursday
a 3:33 a.m.
motion
l- cameras at
the FPL lot
detected
movement
at the South-
PIERSON west end of
the lot. VPD was alerted
and when the first officer
arrived on scene he pulled
into the Ridgewood Mobile
Home Park and found
a red pickup truck with
Vaughn Garrett Byrdtitus
and Kyle M. Pierson plac-
ing copper wiring into the
bed of the truck.
During an initial pat
down officers removed
a magnet, flashlight and
copper wire from Byrdti-
tus. Both confessed to


the crime after they were
read their Miranda rights.
They said they went to
FPL to find some copper
that according to a friend
was left outside the fence
line from a previous bur-
glary. After they checked
the area between FPL and
the mobile home park and
found no wire, they saw
an opening in the fence
to the FPL lot. Byrdtitus
squeezed through the
opening and Pierson
attempted to follow but
couldn't fit through.
Byrdtitus said he found
several bins that were la-
beled as scrap copper. He
made two trips carrying
bundles of copper wiring
back to Pierson who put
them in the truck. While
they were loading the
truck, officers arrived.
FPL identified the cop-
per bundles that were
in the possession of the
men. An FPL representa-
tive estimated the stolen
copper's worth at $1,000.
Byrdtitus, 18, of the 400
block of Pennsylvania
Ave., Osprey, was arrested
and charged with un-
armed burglary of an un-
occupied structure, theft
and possession of bur-


glary tools with intent to
use. His bond is $11,750.
Pierson, 18, of the 400
block Peppertree Road,
Venice, was arrested and
charged with unarmed
burglary of an unoccu-
pied structure and theft.
His bond is $11,000.

began to argue. He said
he punched the victim in
the right side of her face.
She suffered a black eye
and was taken to Sarasota
Memorial Hospital when
she went unconscious dur-


ing questioning. Kennedy
said he had called 9-1-1 to
make sure the victim could

Manasota Beach Club turns 50


By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER

ENGLEWOOD - Fifty
years ago, Robert C. and
Sydney Buffum first
crossed a wooden bridge
on the north end of Mana-
sota Key and drove down
the sandy road to where
they would establish their
Manasota Beach Club.
And for 50 years, the
Buffums have maintained
the ambience of what they
first saw.
The various cottages,
library, tennis and basket-
ball courts, dining room
and other amenities that
make up the resort are in-
terlaced beneath a canopy
of oak hammock.
Judging by the number
of gopher tortoise holes,
wildlife seems as much at
home at the beach club as
guests.
"We knew we wanted to
have something different,"
Sydney said. "We didn't
want to have a motel."
The Buffums first
considered establishing
a resort on Siesta Key,
but realized the zoning
back then would allow
dense and more high-
rise development.
That's not what they
were looking for.
"I don't think we took
a single tree down, not
unless it was dead one,"
Sydney said. "We both
loved to sail, and we
would sail to destinations
that were more or less
natural. We didn't want to
live in a metropolitan or
suburban area. We love
the outdoors."
The Buffums purchased


PHUIU PRUVIULED


Built in the 1920s, the Manasota Beach Club remains mostly unchanged.


the property in 1960 and
opened the doors to the
beach club in 1961.
Now in their 80s, they're
no strangers to hospitality
or resort management.
Robert's grandfather
founded the Weekapaug
Inn in Rhode Island in
1899. The Buffums' son,
Jim, has taken on the
management of the inn,
while their daughter, Syd-
ney Crampton, manages
the Manasota Beach Club.
Robert's grandfather
wanted to open a resort
in Florida, but it was his
grandson who fulfilled
that dream. Originally,
Robert saw the Manasota
Beach Club as a winter
resort.
While the beach club
is now open year-round,
the Buffums bring their
chefs and staff down from
Rhode Island to work on
Manasota Key in the win-
ter and return to Rhode


Island in the spring.
Besides providing a
natural landscape, the
Buffums said they provide
gourmet-style meals for
guests.
Robert Buffum quipped
that the resort business
isn't a business where
people always can make
a lot of money, but the
riches he enjoys are seeing
the resort's guests - and
now their children with
grandchildren - return
year after year.
"It's great to have young
families here," he said. "A
place like this is different."
Eleven of the 12 respon-
dents on www.tripadvisor.
com and www.virtual
tourist.com ranked the
Manasota Beach Club as
"excellent," while the 12th
person said it was "very
good."
Among the comments,
one guest from Boston
said, "The food, service,


hospitality and overall
welcoming 'homey' feel
of the Club is unmatched
by any other hotel or inn
I have visited (which says
a lot).
"Whether you are on
a vacation with your
spouse, alone, or with
rowdy children, Manasota
Beach Club can accom-
modate you and make
your stay relaxing."
A guest from London
said the Manasota Beach
Club "is somewhere every
traveller should go (at
least once)."
The Buffums weren't the
first to envision how the
beach club location would
attract guests.
The heart of the beach
club is a two-story building
and kitchen area built in
1922. According to the Buf-
fums' research, Otto Pfun-
stein came from Germany
and ran it as a European-
style health club.


"In those days before
penicillin, people would
come to Florida to get
away from the flu and
pneumonia," Sydney
Buffum said.
Pfunstein's health club
included two solariums
where men and women
could sunbathe nude,
but the Buffums said the
resort was never operated
as a nudist colony.
Before Pfunstein, a
woman owned the prop-
erty, but the Buffums'
research has yet to reveal
her name.
Besides guests, Mana-
sota Key residents and
others could join the club
and enjoy its amenities.
In light of its 50th anni-
versary and for the month
of January, the beach club
is "extending an invitation"
for locals to enjoy a dinner
at the beach club. The club
also is available for wed-
dings or other events.
To learn more about
the Manasota Beach Club
or to make dinner reser-
vations, call 941-474-2614
or go to www.manasota
beachclub.com. The club
is located at 7660 Mana-
sota Key Road.

Lawyer appeals'robo-signer'video order


By DUANE MARSTELLER
BRADENTON HERALD

A Sarasota attorney
who posted videotaped
depositions of alleged
foreclosure "robo-sign-
ers" on the Internet is
appealing a judge's order
to take them down.
The American Civil
Liberties Union filed
the appeal on behalf
of Christopher Forrest,
challenging a temporary
injunction that Sarasota
County Circuit Judge Rick
DeFuria issued Nov. 19.
Nationwide Title
Clearing, based in Palm
Harbor, obtained the
injunction after Forrest
uploaded the Nov. 4 de-
positions of four employ-


ees who were questioned
as witnesses in a Sarasota
County foreclosure case.
Forrest represents the
homeowners in that case.
In the videos, the
employees - Brian Bly,
Vilma Castros, Dhurata
Doko and Crystal Moore
- testified that they
signed as many as 5,000
mortgage-related docu-
ments a day, sometimes
without a notary public
witnessing it.
"When we took the de-
positions, we didn't really
expect what we uncov-
ered," Forrest said.
He later uploaded the
video to YouTube. Forrest
said it was the first time
he's ever posted deposi-
tion videos, a practice not


unheard of in legal circles.
"I had some seri-
ous concerns about
the practices that were
discussed," he said.
"At the very least there
are some very serious
questions. It's an issue of
great public importance,
and I felt that we needed
to shine a light on these
practices."
A Nationwide Title
spokesman declined to
comment, citing com-
pany policy against
commenting on pending
litigation.
In seeking the in-
junction, the company
argued that posting the
depositions subjected
the employees to "im-
mediate and irreparable


Foreclosure media


By JOSH SALMAN
STAFF WRITER

Six months into Flori-
da's foreclosure mediation
program, the statewide
efforts have had little suc-
cess keeping delinquent
borrowers in their homes,
a new study shows.
To curtail the wave of
foreclosure cases flood-
ing the court system, a
Florida Supreme Court
task force made media-
tion sessions a mandato-
ry step in the foreclosure
process a year ago, with
most circuit courts imple-
menting a local plan by
summer.
But since then, the
program has led to an
agreement between the
lender and homeowner
in only 6 percent of the
cases tested, according
to a report released this
week by Fifth District
Court of Appeal Judge
William Palmer.
Although the program
is still young, court of-
ficials originally projected
their efforts would reduce
pending foreclosure
cases by up to 60 percent.
They attribute the early
struggles to inflexibil-
ity by larger banks and
homeowner reluctancy to
attend the sessions.
"The lenders just
haven't given realistic
terms to people," said
David Hicks, a Sarasota-
based foreclosure attor-
ney. "Modifying a loan
is one thing, but when
you're dealing with peo-
ple who owe $300,000 on
a house worth $150,000,
it's very hard to find
an agreement without
lowering the principal
balance."
Looking at records from

cuit courts, 13,417 cases
were sent to foreclosure
mediation between
March and June. Of those,
768 ended with either the
homeowner agreeing to
hand over the property,
a loan modification or
short sale, the report
shows.
Success rates solely
for Charlotte and Sara-
sota counties couldn't be
obtained.
Hicks said the me-
diation initiative has
done little to reduce the
financial burden posed
to recession-battered ho-
meowners - one of the
top goals judges sought to
achieve with the program.
Most of the borrowers
he works with are willing
to do anything they can
to stay in their house,
but the law stipulates
lenders don't have to
make an offer they're not
comfortable with. And
double-digit declines in
area property values over
the past few years has
made it difficult for the
two sides to come to any
terms.
"The government
can't just pass a program
that says everyone must
get approved for a loan
modification," Hicks said.


"It's a continual process
of a dog chasing its tail.
The banks keep you on
the phone, keep you fil-
ing paperwork, and after
six months, they say you
don't qualify."
But all of the blame
can't be shouldered by
lenders. Although the me-
diation process is funded
by banks, once borrowers
agree to participate, they
have divulge their entire
financial information -
scaring many away.
Others are just very dif-
ficult to get a hold of. The
mediators who adminis-
ter the programs across
the state predict the suc-
cess rates would be closer
to 20 percent if they didn't
include the borrowers
that couldn't be reached,
a figure they believe is a
more accurate represen-
tation of the efforts.
"We don't reach half of
the borrowers, and we
don't know why," said Rod
Petrey, president of the
Collins Center for Public
Policy, which administers
the mediation program
in many areas of Florida.
"The info lenders give us
is often inaccurate. Also,
when a borrower is in
trouble, one of the first
things he does is cut the


injury," that included
veiled death threats. The
employees "now live in
constant fear for their
safety and the safety of
those around them," the
company said in seeking
the injunction.
DeFuria agreed in
granting a temporary
injunction.
"Until the issue can
be more fully explored
in an expedited hearing,
the court finds that the
public interest favors the
temporary injunction
because of the potential
for permanent injury to
those individuals who
were called as witnesses,
but who are not named
as parties to this lawsuit,"
DeFuria's order said.

WEEKEND EDITION * JANUARY 1, 2011


County seeks to fill





advisory boards


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Bill Zinser of Engle-
wood, owner of Seashell
Construction, LLC, which
remodels homes and
does major repairs, says
he has always been ac-
tive within the building
industry. In recent years
he wanted to find out
how the county govern-
ment's building depart-
ment operates from the
inside.
So in September 2008,
Zinser joined the county's
Development Services
Advisory Committee,
which serves as a liaison
between the construction
industry and the county,
advising on fiscal mat-
ters, matters relating to
permits and fees and per-
mitting processes, among
other issues.
Zinser, who is serving
a three-year term, says
county officials listen to
his board because "We
are out there (in the con-
struction industry)." But
committee members also
gain from the experience.
Zinser says he learns
about trends in the
building industry, from
the county's point of
view. The information
he gets he takes back to
the Remodelers Council
of the Home Builders
Association Manatee-
Sarasota.
"It's been a very good
experience because I
more or less keep every-
body informed," Zinser
said. "When the county
opened the doors years
ago (established the
board) it enabled us to
find out what is going on,
and have input, too."


For Christine Robin-
son, an attorney with a
broad interest in county
government, being on
the Planning Commis-
sion was a path toward
her gubernatorial ap-
pointment as a county
commissioner. For oth-
ers, like Zinser, being on
an advisory board is an
opportunity to have an
impact on one specific
area of interest.
With more than 40
advisory boards, coun-
cils, committees and task
forces, county govern-
ment offers residents nu-
merous interests to focus
on through membership.
Board members are not
paid for their time, but
their decisions often are
weighed heavily by the
County Commission,
which appoints them.
The Planning Com-
mission seat vacated
by Robinson is just one
of approximately 42
openings on 23 boards
currently advertised by
county government -
from one vacancy on the
Animal Welfare Advisory
Committee to two on the
Emergency Medical Ser-
vices Advisory Board and
three on the Community
Action Agency Board, and
more. Many boards have
full membership.
A number of board
member positions are
reserved for people with
specific professional
skills, such as those
who work in finance
or law enforcement.
Some boards - such
as the Tourist Develop-
ment Council - include
elected officials from lo-
cal governments. Others
have youth members.


Some 62 percent of the
338 members on the coun-
ty's online roster of 39 ac-
tive boards have Sarasota
postal addresses, followed
by Venice (12 percent),
Englewood (6 percent),
North Port (6 percent), No-
komis (6 percent) Osprey
(2 percent), other locations
(4 percent) and Youth (no
addresses, 2 percent).
Board members serve
terms of two, three or four
years. Most boards meet
monthly, while some
meet twice a month,
every two months, quar-
terly, twice a year or as
needed. Most meetings
are held during the day,
though some are held at
night.
Anyone interested in
being on a board will
need to attend an adviso-
ry board orientation class,
where topics such as the
scope of work, atten-
dance requirements and
compliance with Florida's
Government-in-the-Sun-
shine Law are discussed.
The next class is set for
4 p.m. to 5 p.m. March 3
at the Sarasota County
Administration Center,
1660 Ringling Blvd.,
Sarasota, in the first-floor
training room.
While county commis-
sioners and the Plan-
ning Commission meet
regularly at the Ringling
location and Robert L.
Administration Center
in South Venice, most
boards and committees
conduct their meetings at
facilities throughout the
county.

OUInaugural fanfarVIEW



Inaugural fanfare hits a flat note


We're all for a little pomp and
circumstance, the herald of
trumpets at the beginning of
something new, an evening of tuxes
to highlight a transition. It does the
system good to put on the dog every
now and then, and besides, everyone
loves a parade.
Given that, though, we do wonder
whether incoming Gov. Rick Scott's
week of inaugural celebrations doesn't
seem a tad excessive, especially con-
sidering our state's dismal economic
circumstances. Not to be spoilsports,
but it appears to be over-the-top. Per-
haps just a bit.
Sure, Scott's an outsider to the
political system, so he's relatively new
to the thrill of electoral victory. And
he did open his personal checkbook
to the tune of $50 million-plus to win
election. Considering his long road
from nowhere to the governor's man-
sion, it's hard to blame him for cel-
ebrating in the end zone. But we think
it may be time for the ref to throw the


yellow penalty flag.
Let's run down the list of festivities.
Scott kicked off inaugural cel-
ebrations Monday with a Dixieland
band and a "Hometown Apprecia-
tion Breakfast" in Naples. Then he
zipped up to Orlando for a shindig at
Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resort.
Dinner was a barbecue in Clewis-
ton. On Wednesday, the statewide
tour was to take him to Fort Walton
Beach, Panama City, Jacksonville
and Miami.
Next Monday comes a Salute to
Women in Leadership Breakfast, fol-
lowed by a tribute Scott's wife, Ann.
In the afternoon, Lee Greenwood
and John Michael Montgomery will
perform at a "Military Appreciation"
event at the Leon County Civic Center
Arena - free to military families.
Inauguration donors - invitation
only - will be thanked at a candle-
light dinner at Mission San Luis in
Tallahassee that evening. They will
include those who contributed the


maximum of $25,000 for the inaugural
activities - among them Blue Cross
and Blue Shield of Florida, U.S. Sugar
Corp., Disney, the Seminole Tribe
of Florida and more than 50 other
individuals and corporations. In all, it
is expected that over $2 million from
private sources will be spent on all
festivities.
Then, on Jan. 4, Nixon White House
aide and Prison Fellowship Ministries
founder Chuck Colson will be the
keynote speaker at a morning prayer
breakfast. The official swearing-in cer-
emony will be followed by an invi-
tation-only "Leadership Luncheon."
Then comes the Inaugural Parade
with more than 70 entrants, from the
All-Star Twirlers of Okaloosa County to
the Dixie County High School Redcoat
Regiment Band.
Everything is capped off by the
black-tie Inaugural Ball: sushi, conch
fritters, cheeseburgers, Caesar salad
and key lime pie; music and dancing.
All for donations of $95, which will be


given to the Wounded Warrior Project.
More than $100,000 is expected to be
raised for that good cause.
Lavish? Hardly. A little over the
top, perhaps, but far from the crit-
ics' charges of decadent bread and
circuses.
On the other hand, it's also a bit
much for the spin-meisters to argue
that the events represent a unique
economic stimulus package. For
instance, this from state Chamber of
Commerce President MarkWilson:
"There's no better way to jump-start
Florida's economy than by holding
Inaugural Day festivities that pump
more than $4.5 million into Florida's
economy." By that logic, we might
only have hoped for twice as much.
Scott has every right to trumpet the
new era with a flourish. Considering
the background of general economic
distress and Scott's promise of a
wave of conservative, fiscally prudent
policies, though, these first notes do
sound a little flat.

Happy new year to you, too.
I am the state representative
for the Florida Council of the
Blind, Venice chapter. In that
capacity, I receive information
from our national office as well
as our state.
My responsibility is to get
the information to my local
members, and to inform
the public of progress and
challenges of the visually
impaired and totally blind
people in our community.
As a source of information,
please do not hesitate to con-
tact me at Ellen91@comcast.
net.
I received the year-end re-
port from the American Coun-
cil of the Blind - more specifi-
cally, from its legal department
- a summary of activities of
accessibility that have been
initiated on behalf of the blind
and visually impaired. It is an
impressive list:
Major League Baseball has
made a commitment to make
its main Web site and the sites
of all 30 major league teams
accessible.
Major credit reporting agen-
cies will provide credit reports
in braille, large-print, audio
and online formats.


see it
Airline check-in kiosks and
Web sites are being improved.
Talking ATMs will soon be
operational at Bank of America
locations, with more banks to
follow.
Audio description in movie
theatres is being tested.
Tactile keypads for reading
point-of-sale prices are coming.
Accessible prescription
information is on the way, with
Walmart, CVS and Target tak-
ing the lead.
Pedestrian safety signals are
being installed. (Venice has a
new one at Harbor Drive and
West Venice Avenue; full story
coming soon).
I reported earlier on the
number of digital devices com-
ing into the marketplace.
Modern technology is
enabling many blind and
low-vision people to live bet-
ter in our society. Our Venice
chapter of about 70 members
who are now retired marvel at
all the new gadgets the next
generation will have at their
fingertips.
I truly enjoy being in the
company of others who under-
stand my low vision and share
experiences. You are invited
to join us. We meet twice a
month, one meeting a social
luncheon get-together, and the
second a business meeting on
the third Wednesday of each
month, usually with an inter-
esting speaker. You can reach
me on my old-fashioned tele-
phone land line at 497-4262.

Ellen Hillstrom is the state
representative to the Florida
Council of the Blind for the

Boo-hoo. Barbara Walters
said it best: John Boehner,
weeper of the house.
Disputed. Fire union vice
president Jerry Collins doth
protest too much, although
I'll agree that the timing of the
fire union contract ratification
was no coincidence. This was
the only city union contract
to be reviewed by the new
council. They are the ones who
rubber-stamped it on Nov. 23.
Other union contracts were
settled long before. To deter-
mine the facts, please see the
contract for yourselves. It's in
the agenda of the Nov. 23 city
council meeting. On page 97,
you'll notice that there is a pro-
vision to give $1,200 to firemen
who have topped out in the
second year of the contract.
Collins indicated otherwise. As
for pleading poverty, the fire
department received a very
large raise a few years ago. On
the city Web site, in the finance
department, you'll see a recent
city budget. Page 83 shows the
FY10 adopted budget allocat-
ing nearly $5 million for total
fire staff compensation. Given
47 fire staff, that works out to
more than $100,000 a piece.
Let me call you sweetheart.
Humbug. Outdoor lighting
displays - who won? Don't
you sometimes feel that a
little is more and certainly
enough? It seems that some of
these people can't get enough
lights in their garish outdoor
displays. "Got all these lights,
got to do something with
them!" Whatever happened
to the tasteful displays with
miniature lights, either solid
or mixed, carefully placed in
bushes. Icicle lights strung
across the front of the house
from the edge of the roof,
preferably in solid colors, red,
green and blue. Mr. Black
got rid of the clear lights in
downtown Venice. And look at
it now - nice and cheery and
tasteful. That's my humbug
for the year because I'm sure


Let 'em

nothing will change. After all,
what's the true meaning of
Christmas? I guess whatever
floats your boat.
Scrooged. I'm calling about
the fantastic tree decorations
in the arboretum in Blalock
Park behind the community
center. It's a real winter won-
derland for all to see. However,
the homes around the park
seem a gloomy view of the
Scrooge atmosphere that some
live by during the holidays.
I hope that some of these
houses will be lit up before
Christmas. In fact, there's only
one house, of all of those that
surround the park, that does
have beautiful decorations.
Pathetic. But I'm enjoying
what others have done at the
arboretum tree ceremony for
the holidays.
Who's fool? Who is our
government trying to fool? No
Social Security raise because
no raise in the cost of living.
Have those multi-millionaires
in Washington ever tried living
on a low, fixed income like our
senior citizen population is
trying to do? Try to buy food
and clothing, pay rent and all


buy the medicines they can't
afford. What are they supposed
to do? Why doesn't our country
have some program to help the
elderly instead of giving our
money to the car companies?
Square deal. A cubicle is fa-
miliar to all who read the comic
strip "Dilbert" or who worked
in one. It's a small doorless and
topless partitioned-off area that
has largely replaced the office
where engineers worked. I first
saw the word cubicle in 1952 in
college in the novel 1984 about
a futuristic, highly manipulated
society. The main character
works in a cubicle signing
papers endlessly all day. What
a horror for those living in the
liberalized world of the 1950s.
But by the 1970s cubicles ar-
rived at my company. I avoided
them until retiring in the 1990s.
Where has U.S. creativity gone?
Perhaps a person working in a
cubicle realizes he is not paid to
think, just to keep the bureau-
cracy moving.
Good Sam. We went shop-
ping to Walmart last week.
When we came out, we found
on our windshield a note that
said, "I found a cell phone
next to your car and I turned
it into the office." My husband
looked, and he didn't have his
cell phone. We walked into the
office and described it to the
lady and she said, "Yes, some
very nice gentleman turned it
in." All I can say is, thank you
good Samaritan. That was such
a sweet thing to do, and merry
Christmas!
Show us. Eliminating tele-
vised council meetings should
not even be considered. It costs
less than $1 per year for each
citizen in the city of Venice.
What the televised version does
is give the citizens who care
and are unable to attend city
council meetings in person, for
whatever reason, an opportu-
nity to see and hear firsthand
exactly what is taking place in

That is a phrase we

and around our commu-
nity. With the average age
of the resident of Venice
being 65-plus years of
age, you are affecting the
quality of life of Venice
by taking the meeting
out of the sunshine and
into the darkness of the
chambers. Our votes
count, and this is the best
and most honest way to
inform the taxpayers and
those concerned with
what is taking place at
401 W. Venice Ave. It is
true, we could read the
local newspapers to get
information, but some-
times it's very difficult for
a news staff to get the real
intent of what is being
said and translate it to the
newspapers and always
be able to do it in a fair
way. Give us the privilege
and the right to interpret
this for ourselves.
Answers, please. I have
a question for the editor.
I enjoy, in the weekend
edition, the Goren Bridge
and the bidding. They
always say to look for the
answers on Monday, but
we don't get a Monday
Gondolier Sun. Would
it be possible to put the
bidding sequence on
perhaps another page?

answers to the weekly

Let cops
police themselves
Editor:
Hey Venice, what gives
with the city?
Just a few years ago
Jim Hanks was the police
chief and there were
complains about the
good old boys and disci-
pline. The then-city man-
ager, Marty Black, didn't
think that Chief Hanks
disciplined his officers
correctly because of the
good old boys. Chief
Hanks finally retired and
Mr. Black looked far and
near for a replacement
and chose a woman from
Michigan, Julie Williams,
to be the replacement
chief. That would be the
end the good old boys.
Chief Williams did a
great job and got the po-
lice reaccredited with the
state. This was no small
accomplishment. Hat's
off to Chief Williams.
Now it seems the good
old boys are striking
again. Chief Williams has
been forced to retire. Too
many complaints about
fairness and discipline.
Chief Williams might
have been guilty of
passing information to
her officers but I doubt
if there were any good
old boys on her part. She
hadn't been here long
enough to form that
kind of bond with her
officers.
Now it seems that City
Manager Isaac Turner's
notes about his review
with Williams are in
question. I think it's
about time city manage-
ment ran the city and let
the cops be cops.


It's usually
the little trucks
Editor:
Four-wheelers versus
big rigs: In the mind of
the general public, when
the news media say "truck
accident," the first image
is a semi, only to learn it
was a pickup truck that
caused the accident.
I would like to see
one of them ride with a
trucker for a week just to
see how the four-wheel-
ers do the dumbest things
around the big rigs.
I've seen a semi driver
take to the shoulder to
keep from hitting a car
that cut him off. That
driver chose to let him
live that day. The driver
of the big rig will do ev-
erything he can to keep
from hitting you.
I'm tired of the semi
driver getting a bad rap;
nine times out of 10 the
real culprit is the four-
wheeler.
The drivers aren't
monsters - they're
fathers, mothers, sisters,
brothers, sons and
daughters doing their
best to get their prod-
ucts to the stores for the


rest of us.
Think about it:
thing in your hou
on a semi at one
except you and th
you breathe.
So give the big
break. Stay out of
way and let them
your intentions b
your turn signal..
careful out there.

There is hope - even

eliminating child abuse
in our community. After
all, "it shouldn't hurt to

Wednesday Gondolier
Sun.
Buck flick. Thank you to
the person who called in
about having a $1 movie
in Venice. That would be
the greatest thing - even
$2. You have to go all the
way up to Sarasota; they
have a $2 movie. Then I
could see a hundred peo-
ple or more in the seats
rather than just two or
three people in the seats
that cost $10 a person.
I don't understand why
they don't make a cheaper
movie. It costs the same
to run it, and they would
make more money at the
concession stand. I wish
more people would call in
about this and someone
could do this for us.
Out there. I think the
Venice Gondolier Sun
is being unfair to other
candidates for the chief
of police. They have
highlighted Chief Lewis
like he already has the
job. Chief Lewis may


be a good man, but the
Gondolier Sun has put
his name out there. What
about the other candi-
dates? They're not getting
a fair shake from the
Gondolier Sun. So, I'd just
like to say, make a level
playing field for every-
one. There will be many
good candidates - 200
the last time that applied
when we picked Chief
Williams.
Editor's Note: We will
have stories about the
chief candidates in
due time. The story on
Lewis was written by a
reporter from our North
Port paper, where Lewis
has worked for several
years but is approaching
retirement.

Bring businesses
back home
Editor:
The prolonged high
unemployment rate is
not going to get any bet-
ter if nothing concrete is
done.
President Clinton is the
real cause of the unem-
ployment. He forced
through Congress the
North American Free
Trade Act over much
objection from the public.
Simply, it means Ameri-
can products cannot
match the low product
prices of imports from the
cheap-labor countries.
Thus, corporations
and business closed
their plants and shops
in the United States and
reopened them in cheap-
labor countries. "Made in
the USA"' does not appear
on products bought in
the United States. An auto
plant is in Canada and
related businesses are
elsewhere. The American
TV and electronics indus-
tries are gone, with the
products being made in
Mexico, Japan and else-
where. So are the shoe
and garment industries.
The cure: A strong presi-
dent is needed to order the
departed businesses back
to America, with heavy
fines for those that stall.
Also, re-establish the trade
tariff system, which made
all imported products
equal in price to those
made in America. No com-
pany or industry should be
allowed to produce outside
the United States.
The present day situa-
tion will not change, I feel,
unless America gets back
to the pre-Clinton era.
Low taxes are a must.
The rich don't need them.
They are loaded as is.
Corporate and business
taxes are too high - in
fact, the highest in the
world. Lowering those tax-
es to a feasible level means
more corporate and busi-
ness money for production
and job creation, which in
turn raises revenue.

Much more to the story
Editor:
It is a shame, but M.A.
Pierce's letter aboutVen-
ice High School shows
a full lack of knowledge
about the whole volley-
ball issue.
Were you at the region-
al volleyball tourney? Did
you attend any district
playoff games? Did you
attend any season games
to show support for the
team? Doubtful times
three, but you are a "dis-
illusioned and disheart-
ened old grad." Perhaps
you need to get out more
and get more involved at
the school support level.
Volleyball has in fact
"reached the big time" at
Venice High. Volleyball is
the second most popu-
lar sport in the state of
Florida and competition is
fierce. Girls' college schol-
arships are being awarded
because of this high level
of play. There was nothing
for girls when you gradu-
ated in 1957.
Brian Wheatley could
go to any college pro-
gram and coach, but he
remains faithful to Venice
and its student athletes.
The team members must
maintain high GPAs and
are openly faith-based by
individual choice.
For the FHSAA to
never personally speak
to Coach Wheatley, and
simply fax an official let-
ter to the school with two
newspaper articles, is an
abomination.
If you want to find out
how erroneous a newspa-
per article can be, just be
one of the people writ-
ten about. Your letter has
been read by many, but I
hope it sinks in to many
that you are in error.
Get up, get out, get
involved.

Greg Silvia, owner of
Althea's Restaurant just
around the corner, ob-
jected to the city's audit
findings and demanded
further explanation,
which he received in a
letter from Slaughter
dated Dec. 2.
Silvia questioned
whether the cost for
new doors, windows,
awnings, and other
improvements were cor-
rectly omitted from the
total cost of renovations.
Slaughter said most of
the doors were exist-
ing. Other items Silvia
said should have been
included in the total
of exterior alterations,
according to Slaughter,
were not required.
Silvia also questioned


the city's validation
rules for ascertaining
total costs of exterior
alterations.
"Unfortunately, the
code does not specify
how validation is to be
ascertained," Slaughter
wrote.
Carney, Hassler and
architect James Soller all
signed affidavits stat-
ing the cost of exterior
renovations was below
the 50 percent mark of
$222,500 for this particu-
lar project.
Had Carney been un-
able to meet the 50 per-
cent threshold, he would
have needed to obtain
a certificate of architec-
tural and come into full
compliance with current
city design standards.

What a year to remember


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

What a year 2010 was for Venice sports.
The school collected district titles in girls bas-
ketball, girls soccer, baseball, softball, girls tennis
from last sports season while this season volleyball
grabbed another title.
Here is a list of some of the top sports stories in the
area (in no particular order):

Girls basketball wins
first district title since 2005
The Venice High girls basketball team traveled to
Naples and upset Gulf Coast High. 66-55, to capture
its first district title since 2005. It was the only time
the Lady Indians defeated the Lady Sharks during
the season as they lost two regular season games.
Venice hosted Hillsborough in the Class 5A-Region
3 quarterfinals and ended the season with a 13-10
record.


Three Venice girls weightlifters
capture three state medals
The Venice High girls weightlifting team brought
home three state medals from the FHSAA Girls
Weightlifting Finals in February. Seniors Taylor
Capasso and Emily Daniels grabbed fifth place in
the 119- and 154-pound weight classes while senior
Amanda Chappel placed sixth in the 119-pound
weight class. Capasso lifted 130 pounds in the bench
press and 145 pounds in the clean and jerk for a
275-pound total. Chappel lifted 140 pounds in the
bench press and 135 in the clean and jerk for the
same total. The tie was broken by lower body weight.
Daniels had a 150-pound lift in the bench press and
165 pounds in the clean and jerk for a 315-pound
total. The two fifth-place finishes is a new best for
the Lady Indians as the previous highest finish was
sixth place on different occasions. As a team, Venice
tied for 16th place out of 28 teams, that scored points,
with five points - a new school record.

Venice's Jeremy Barrett performs with partner Caydee Denney
during practice in Ellenton. The duo competed in the 2010
Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, British Colombia.

Venice's Barrett
skates in Winter Olympics
Venice's Jeremy Barrett paired with Caydee Den-
ney to capture the U.S. Championship in pairs figure
skating to make the world team. The win advanced
the pair into the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Van-
couver, British Colombia where they finished in 13th
place. After the Olympics, the two grabbed seventh
place in the 2010 World Championships, setting per-
sonal bests in all three marks.

Cavallaro eclipses 1,000-point mark
On a layup with 5:23 left in the first quarter against
DeSoto County, Venice High junior Juliana Cavallaro
hit the 1,000-point mark in her career. The 5-foot-9
guard finished with 35 points. Cavallaro is the first
Venice player to reach 1,000 points since Lisa Hough
accomplished the feat on Jan. 6, 2005. Since 1998,
Cavallaro is the fourth player to set the mark follow-
ing the footsteps of Shirah Levine (1998), Amy Miller
(2000), Kaydi Lyons (2004) and Hough.


Members of the Venice High girls tennis team hold the Class
3A-District 10 championship trophy. It is the first district title
for the Lady Indians in Barb Ginn's 18 years of coaching.

Venice girls tennis grab district title
In April, the Lady Indians girls tennis team cap-
tured the district championship in April with a 16-15
win over Lakewood Ranch. It was the first district title
in at least 18 years or since Barb Ginn has been head
coach. Winning district titles for Venice were Bianca
Echtler at No. 3 singles, Emme Zastempowski at No.
5 singles and the duo of Echtler and Linsey Gabris
at No. 2 doubles. In the Class 3A-Region 5 semifi-
nals, Venice cruised to a 7-0 win over Bartow, which
marked the first time Ginn has won a regional match.
In the regional final against Lakewood Ranch, the
Lady Indians lost a time-consuming and heartbreak-
ing 4-3 match. The match, which lasted 4 and a half
hours, ended when the Lady Mustangs won at No. 2
doubles.


Venice girls soccer reaches
regional final for first time
For the first time in school history, the Venice High
girls soccer team played in the regional final against
Seminole. On a windy day, Seminole scored its lone
goal in the first half for a 1-0 win. The Lady Indians
captured the district title for the second straight
season and ended with a 16-6-3 record. Junior Dana
LaRocque and senior Tina Trujic combined for 59
goals with LaRocque leading the team with 30 goals.
The Lady Indians' defense also produced 11 shutouts.

Venice's Bills places second in state
Venice High junior Parker Bills placed second in the
Class 2A state weightlifting meet in the 129-pound
weight class. Bills was in first place until his opponents
final lift. In the bench press, Bills lifted a personal-
best 280 pounds and added 220 pounds in the clean
and jerk for a 500-pound total. He was second by five
pounds. The silver medal is the highest place by aVen-
ice High lifter since 1999 when Adam Mineo captured
the Class 5A state title in the 119-pound weight class.
Bills is a three-time state qualifier and two-time state
placer. As a sophomore, Bills placed sixth.

Venice's Wheatley
eclipses 400 victories
Venice High volleyball coach Brian Wheatley needed
only two matches this season to reach 400 career wins
at Venice High. With a sweep over Cardinal Mooney,
who is coached by former Venice High standout Kris-
ten Batt, Wheatley picked up his 400th victory in 505
matches. The Lady Indians finished with a 21-9 record
and berth in the regional final for the third time in the
last four years. Venice also won its ninth straight district
title. Wheatley's career record now stands at 419-114.

Venice softball wins another district
Another district title for the Lady Indians softball
team as they scored a 1-0 win over Manatee with
a three-hitter by Mel Dembinski. Dembinski also
knocked in the only run with a sacrifice fly in the
third inning. It was Venice's seventh straight district
crown. The Lady Indians reached the Class 5A-Region
3 quarterfinals, where their season ended with a 1-0
eight-inning loss to Tampa Sickles. Venice finished
with a 15-8 record.

Venice baseball wins
first district since 2007
For the first time since 2007, the Venice High
baseball team captured the district title with a
3-2 win over Manatee on a walk-off RBI single in
the seventh inning by Aaron Rhodes. The Indians
won its regional quarterfinal game against Tampa
Gaither, 7-3, with the aid of a four-run sixth inning.
Venice's season came to an end with a 3-1 loss to
Tampa King in the regional semifinals. The Indians

GIRLS BASKETBALL - WILLIE CLEMONS CLASSIC


Venice grabs runner-up trophy I


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Defensive breakdowns
in the fourth quarter
cost Venice a chance at a
championship trophy.
Instead, the Lady
Indians had to settle for
second place in the Sun-
rise Division of the Willie
Clemons Girls Basketball
Classic as Riverview ral-
lied from an eight-point
deficit to pull out a 42-39
victory on Wednesday
afternoon at Southeast
High in Bradenton.
The loss snapped a
six-game winning streak
for the Lady Indians as
the Lady Rams were the
last team to beat Venice,
35-33, on Dec. 10.
Venice (13-3) will get
another shot at the Lady
Rams as the Lady Indi-
ans play at Riverview on
Jan. 25.
The Lady Indians led,
24-19, after three quar-


ters and increased it to
28-20 with 6:57 left in the
fourth quarter on two
free throws by Juliana
Cavallaro.
Then everything went
wrong as Venice battled
foul trouble.
Riverview scored
nine consecutive points
including a three-point
play by Ashley Losch on
a layup off a rebound
with 3:39 left to grab a
29-28 lead.
Venice connected on
three of four foul shots
in the next 28 seconds to
take a 31-29 advantage.
Riverview's Dusty
Carpenter, who scored
six of her 11 points in
the fourth quarter, hit a
short wide-open jumper
to tie it then a layup and
two foul shots later and
Venice trailed, 35-31.
Venice closed the gap
at 37-34 before Carpenter
hit another jumper from
the same spot with 55.2


seconds remaining.
Riverview went ahead
40-34 before Venice cut it
to four points on a layup
off a rebound by Marie
Hanewinckel
The Lady Rams (13-
1) sealed the win on
two foul shots with 6.9
seconds left for a 42-36
advantage. Venice tallied
the final basket on a long
3-pointer by Cavallaro,
who led Venice with 22
points.
Riverview scored 23
points in the quarter,
which nearly doubled
its output for the other
three quarters combined.
"Just a complete
mental breakdown," said
Venice coach John Flynn.
"Offensive rebounds and
letting them get back in
there. Their eighth player
off the bench comes
in and knocks in three
wide-open jumpers. We
didn't contest them. That
is six points there. That is


the game right there. We
had some mental errors
on defense at the wrong
time and she knocks in
the shots."
The defensive game
stayed close from the
start as Venice had a 7-5
lead after one quarter.
A foul shot with 4.2
seconds left in the
second quarter gave
Riverview a 15-14 lead at
halftime.
The Lady Indians
opened the third quarter
with a 10-0 run including
3-pointers from Hannah
Revels and Cavallaro.
Riverview, who didn't
score until 2:47 left in
the third quarter, scored
the final four points of
the quarter to cut into
Venice's lead.
"I was happy at the
end of the third quarter,"
said Flynn. "We've got to
close the deal. You can't

concluded with an 18-11 record.

Sandburg retired; Dombroski hired
Longtime Venice High athletics director Larry Sand-
burg retired after 3712 years of teaching and coaching
at Venice High. His last day was Jan. 15 and former
assistant athletic director Pete Dombroski was hired
to replace him.

Venice swimmer
places third and fourth at states
Venice High swimmer Derek Pridemore, a junior,
captured a bronze medal in the 500-yard freestyle at
the Pinch-A-Penny FHSAA Class 3A swimming finals
with a school-record time of 4:27.65. The time earned
him an automatic All-American designation. He also
placed fourth in the 200-yard freestyle with a school-
record time of 1:41.42. Pridemore is the highest
Venice finisher at the state meet since Mark Cox took
a second- and fourth-place in 2008.

Venice grad Trey Burton
sets records at University of Florida
Former Venice High football standout Trey Bur-
ton made quite an impression in his first season at
the University of Florida in Gainesville. The 6-foot-
2, 222-pound freshman played quarterback, wide
receiver, running back and tight end for the Gators.
He had 347 yards rushing, which was second on the
team, and led the team with 11 rushing touchdowns.
He also completed 4-of-5 passes for 83 yards and
also caught 309 passes for 188 yards and a touch-
down. He was named to the AP Coaches All-SEC
Freshman Team. Against Kentucky, he scored six
touchdowns - five rushing and one receiving - to
set school and SEC records for most touchdowns in
a single game. His 11 rushing touchdowns is second
in UF history for a freshman, trailing Emmitt Smith's
13 in 1987.

Venice High football team
forced to forfeit 2009 season
The Florida High School Athletic Association
found Venice in violation of FHSAA policies in six
of 16 charges listed in a 15-page report sent to the
school in November. The school was fined more than

$9,000 and forced to forfeit all of their nine victo-
ries in football from the 2009 season. The offenses,
which cost Venice victories in sports, stemmed from a
student falsifying information to gain athletic eligi-
bility, and two students who falsified information
and participated while ineligible. The later violation
was reversed two days later after the FHSAA received
additional information to clear it up. In three of the
violations, the FHSAA ruled that Venice must for-
feit all contests in all those sports. Venice was fined
$2,500 for the other three violations. The harshest
violation cost Venice nine football wins and the Class
5A-District 10 trophy.

Longtime football coach
Jim Powell passes away
The Venice community was saddened at the pass-
ing of longtime football head coach Jim Powell, who
died after battling cancer. In his 28-year coaching
career, Powell led the Indians to 187 wins. His overall
record was 187-96-3. In a 13-season span from 1970
to 1982, Venice compiled a 113-24 record and quali-
fied for three times for the state playoffs. From 1979-
1981, Venice had a regular-season unbeaten streak
of 33 games. During his tenure, the Indians only had
three losing seasons. Powell, who taught history and
was school's athletic director for nearly 30 years,
helped his former player Nick Coleman when the
Indians captured the Class 5A state title in 2000 with
a 15-0 record.

Volleyball team hit with
postseason sanctions
The Florida High School Athletic Association
fined and penalized the Lady Indians varsity vol-
leyball team for their actions after a loss to Tarpon
Springs East Lake in the Class 5A-Region 3 final in
November. After throwing their regional runner-up
trophy in the water before the Sunshine Skyway
Bridge, the FHSAA deemed it unsportsmanlike
conduct and fined the school $500 and socked
the program with a three-year restrictive proba-
tion, which translates into the volleyball team not
being allowed to compete in the postseason until
the 2014-15 season. Venice High head coach Brian
Wheatley took responsibility for his mistake and
ordered a new trophy. The school has plans to ap-
peal the decision.

Planning board a route to Sarasota Commission?


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
After nearly three
years on the Planning
Commission, Christine
Robinson was appoint-
ed to the County Com-
mission in November
by Gov. Charlie Crist to
serve the final two years
of the retiring Shan-
non Staub's term. One
other current Planning
Commission member
- Christopher King
of Englewood - also
sought to be appointed
as Staub's successor.
Robinson will serve at
her first County Com-
mission meeting on Jan.
11. At that time she and
the other commissioners
are expected to fill the
vacancy on the Planning
Commission created by
her appointment.
With the application
and submission pro-
cess now over, Planning
Commission applica-
tions from at least five
as-yet-unscreened
residents have been
received to fill that
vacancy.
The Planning Com-
mission - arguably the
county's most important
advisory board - works
closely with the county
Department of Plan-
ning and Development
Services. While overall
development slowed in
recent years, they col-
laborated on - and at
least once differed over
how to handle - state-
mandated amendments
to the county's Compre-
hensive Plan.
"It's extremely impor-
tant," County Com-
missioner Joe Barbetta
said of the Planning
Commission's role in
county government.
"The County Commis-
sion definitely looks at
the Planning Commis-
sion's advisory opinions
as important."
As for Robinson's suc-
cessor, Barbetta would
like to see his board
appoint "somebody
that is fair, that will do
their homework; prefer-
ably someone who has
somewhat of a business
background. It helps if

CITY NOTES
Venice city meetings
The Jan. 4 planning
commission meeting has
been canceled.
An economic develop-
ment summit meeting
with other governmental
entities has been sched-
uled for 9 a.m. Jan. 19 at
the Venice Community
Center, 326, S. Nokomis
Ave.

Christmas

Christmas trees, cut into

City considers
eliminating
televised meetings
City Council meet-
ings are currently aired
the Wednesday and
Saturday following the
meeting at 9:30 a.m.
on Comcast Channel
189; and the Monday
following the meeting
at 9 a.m. on Comcast
Channel 19 and Verizon
Channel 32.
The city council, in its
effort to reduce expen-
ditures, is considering
no longer taping the
meetings for airing if
people are not using the
service. Although there
is no charge for airing
the meetings, the taping


costs about $135 per
hour.
If you would like to
see the council meetings
continue to be present-
ed on television, or if
you agree this is a good


they have been involved
in the community. They
don't have to have plan-
ning experience, just the
desire to put in the time
to make fair, balanced,
intelligent decisions."
"Land use is probably
one of the most difficult
areas to understand,"
Robinson says of the
Planning Commission's
focus. "It translates into
a lot of other areas of
county policy. It gives
you a great exposure to
issues from county line
to county line."
As she begins her
County Commission ca-
reer, Robinson says she's
not sure whether she will
seek to be elected to the
District 3 seat in 2012,
though she will have the
traditional advantages of
incumbency.
But should being
appointed to serve on
the Planning Commis-
sion - where members
build a "body of work"
that affects residents
countywide - be con-
sidered a stepping stone
to running for County
Commission? While
Robinson is creating a
record as commissioner
- on which she could
campaign for her seat
in 2012 - so too are
Planning Commission
members with higher
aspirations.
With Robinson sworn
in, there now are three
former Planning Com-
mission members and
two former Sarasota city
commissioners on the
County Commission.
Being on the Planning
Commission propelled
Robinson, Barbetta and
Jon Thaxton into elected
office.
After 14 and a half
years on the Planning
Commission, Barbetta
decided to run for
County Commission. He
was first elected in 2006.
Described then as a
semi-retired lawyer and
an investment consul-
tant with a background
in real estate develop-
ment, planning, zoning
and land use, he was an
outspoken advocate of
"smart growth" on the

Where to
park in Venice
Seasonal parking lim-
its in downtown Ven-
ice will be posted and
enforced by Jan. 1. The
parking limits include
five hours in Centenni-
al Park and three hours
in the Miami Avenue
Municipal Parking lot.
The year-round limit
of two hour parking
along the downtown
streets remains in ef-
fect. Venice is one of
the few municipalities
in the area to offer free
downtown parking.
Police officers will be
giving tickets to viola-
tors. Parking fines are
currently $15.
In an effort to pro-
vide more opportuni-
ties for more people
to enjoy the amenities
of the downtown area,
Venice MainStreet
requested the time lim-
its. At the same time,
MainStreet is collecting
pledges from the down-
town employees to park
at auxiliary parking lots
in order to leave the
time-limited spaces for
customers.


More free parking
without time limits is
available along East
Venice Avenue and
American Legion Way
on the east side of U.S.
41 Business.


Planning Commission
and earned a reputa-
tion for independent
thinking and hard work.
Voters re-elected him in
November.
Barbetta says he did
not join the Planning
Commission with the
intention of running
for County Commis-
sion some day, but was
encouraged by friends
to run when David
Mills chose not to run
for re-election.
Thaxton, an environ-
mentalist with a back-
ground in real estate,
joined the Planning
Commission six years
before being elected to
the County Commission
in 2000. He was re-elect-
ed in 2004 and 2008.
During the December
presentation in which
county commissioners
paid tribute to Staub,
Thaxton thanked her for


supporting his efforts to
join the Planning Com-
mission years earlier.
He added that he tried
"laboriously ... 13 tries,
seven years to get on
the Planning Commis-
sion, and could not
seem to muster three
votes."

Geography could
play a key role in the
makeup of the County
Commission after the
2012 election. Sara-
sota County is divided
into five commission
districts, and commis-
sioners represent the
district in which they
live for four-year terms.
Robinson, an attorney,
moved from Venice to
South Venice so she
could live in District 3
and succeed Staub. But
commissioners are
elected at large, so they
seek to attract voters


Car


countywide, a situation
which helps well-funded
candidates.
Current Sarasota
County Commissioners
Carolyn Mason and Nora
Patterson are former
Sarasota city commis-
sioners. But candidates
for the District 3 seat in
2012 could come from
outside the Planning
Commission or Sarasota
city government.
The population
growth in North Port
during the 2000s -
and the applications
by former North Port
city commissioners
Vanessa Carusone and
Barbara Gross to suc-
ceed Staub - suggest
that North Port voters
may have one of their
own to vote for in the
2012 race for Robin-
son's seat. Or perhaps
King, the planning
commission member,


^jw~eto


will run, representing
Englewood.
"That decision is a
long way off," King said
Thursday. "It is certainly
open for consideration."
Meanwhile, after
the 2010 Census is
released in the spring,
the County Commis-
sion may redraw district
boundaries.
"Right now there are
three commissioners
who represent the city
of Sarasota and only
one who represents
North Port and Engle-
wood," North Port City
Commissioner David
Garofalo said. "But our
population has grown. I
would urge the County
Commission to redraw
the districts in such
away that there are two
commissioners repre-
senting North Port. Fair
is fair."

It was a big year in Our Town


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

In 2010, Venice, Fla., was in the news
at home and abroad.
Venice watched a hometown boy
win a national championship in figure
skating and head off to the Winter
Olympics. Jeremy Barrett and his
partner Caydee Denney, after skating
together for less than two years, earned
a gold medal for pair skating at the
United States Figure Skating nationals.
They skated at Ellenton and have since
moved to the east coast of Florida to
work with coach John Zimmerman.
Venice Theatre, the country's largest
community theater (per capital , was
responsible for two of the biggest Our
Town stories in 2010.
In early June, the Littles were finally
stripped from the building, the last
step in the name changing process
that actually began nearly two years
earlier. Since its inception, the home
of area thespians was known as Venice
Little Theatre. Despite outgrowing its
name in both reputation and physi-
cal size, the name change spawned
as much controversy as some council
meetings at city hall. But, on the eve
of the theater's first-ever international
festival (story number two) the Littles
had to go, and there was at least one
Little on each side of the theater's
main building.
With its more appropriate name in
place, the theater was literally ready to
take on the world.
Within days of the Little-letting, Ven-
ice Theatre welcomed the world June
22-27 when theater companies from
11 countries arrived for the American
Association of Community Theatre's
2010 International Festival, an event
held every four years.
Dubbed Festival in Paradise, the
event had been in the planning stage
for some three years. More than 12
other theater companies had vied to
hold the event. There are more than
10,000 community theaters in the
United States. Not only did Venice
Theatre win that right, it also was the
first theater in the world awarded
a second festival. Before the end of
the 2010 event, the theater's execu-
tive artistic director, Murray Chase,
announced that the 2014 festival also
would be held in Venice. If that festi-
val goes as well as the 2010 festival,
watch for Venice to be named the per-
manent home of the event beginning
in 2018.
As the international crowd spread
throughout the town, flags of the
participating countries were hung on
Tampa Avenue and the seats in the
theater's main stage area filled for
afternoon and evening performances
(three per session). Including a pre-
sentation by Loveland Center actors,
there were 12 different hourlong
performances. Eleven were presented
twice and each of the 11 initial per-
formances was adjudicated by three
international judges, brought in for
the occasion.
Even the "Little" people applauded
the festival and worked to make it such
a success. The actual Littles are in stor-
age and one day may appear on the
auction block.
Another big-little story involved
Venice Christian School, which
graduated its first senior class. The
big event took place on June 5, when
a little class of three students received
their diplomas from Principal Jerry
Frimmel and looked forward to head-
ing off to college in the fall. Located
on Center Road, the school offers
classes from kindergarten through
12th grade and is a private Christian
school fully accredited by the Florida
Council of Private Schools.
The other big scholastic story of the
year involved the retirement of Can-
dace Millington as the principal of

Two years after the decision was made to
change the name of Venice Little Theatre to
Venice Theatre, the new letters were placed on
the building June 10.

Michelle and David Miller, left, were ecstatic July 25 that their daughter McKenzie, third from

McKenzie contracted a severe case of bacterial spinal meningitis, which can be fatal, while
visiting the Sendelbach family (Andre, Gunthard and Julia), right, in Germany this summer. The
Sendelbachs visited the Millers at First Christian Church, where David is the senior pastor.

Venice High School. June 4, with 438
graduating seniors, she moved on to
a new phase of her life. She and her
husband (also retired) plan to do more
traveling. Millington was at the high
school for 20 years, serving the past
eight as principal. Jack Turgeon re-
placed her as principal.
Two business stories warranted Our
Town treatment.
Mark Richmond, owner of The
Furniture Warehouse, was named 2010
Florida Distinguished Retailer of the
Year by members of the Florida Home
Furnishings Representatives Asso-
ciation, and, after years as an aging
gray landmark, the site of the former
Smitty's Restaurant and the later Land-
mark Restaurant, was totally renovated
to become Pineapples, the largest
restaurant in Venice.
The Pineapples project was in the
news for months as residents argued
about exterior colors, even before the
work was completed. Since opening,
the controversy has died away and the
parking lot regularly overflows. Owner
Tom Carney also owns T.J. Carney's on
West Venice Avenue.
For David Miller, the pastor of First
Christian Church in Venice, and his
wife, Michelle, their daughter McKen-
zie's survival from an attack of bacteri-
al spinal meningitis while on a student
trip to Germany was more than a big
story - it was a miracle. Rushed to a
German hospital as her friends packed
to head home to the United States,
her condition was so grave the doctor
did not expect her to live. In Florida,
it took another miracle to acquire a
passport for her mother and get both
parents on the plane to Germany
within 24 hours. That Michelle also
had to be driven home from Destin,
Fla., added to the already difficult
scenario. Within a week, McKenzie
recovered and the family headed back
to the States. A few months later,
they cheerfully welcomed McKenzie's
German family, the Sendelbachs, to
Venice and held a reunion party at
Luna Ristorante to celebrate the mira-
cles. The Millers said a list of miracles
made the difference, beginning with
the fact that the illness began well
before the return flight to the United
States. Had she become ill on the
plane and not been able to secure
treatment for 10 hours, she might not
have lived.
Two other stories involving clergy
warranted front-page coverage in Our
Town.
Sister Frances Lalor of Epiphany
Cathedral celebrated her golden
jubilee with the Sisters of Mercy, and
the Jewish Center of Venice gained
a new spiritual leader, Rabbi Daniel
Krimsky.
Krimsky came to the center from
Miami Beach, where he was the direc-
tor of the religious school and served
under Rabbi Elliott Pearlson at Temple
Menorah.
His first service was July 16. He
started a four-week class on Jewish
spirituality for adults at the begin-
ning of August. Trained in Israel in
an orthodox school, he will serve all
branches of Judaism in the Venice
area. He replaced Anne Campbell
White, the center's first rabbi, who has
moved to St. Petersburg.
For the city as a whole, the biggest
story of the year may be one that will
not appear in Our Town until Wednes-
day, Jan. 5 - recognition of the John
Nolen Plan of Venice Historic District
for listing on the National Register of
Historic Places, an eight-year project
of Dorothy Korwek, the retired director
of historical resources for the city of
Venice.
We never lack for stories in Our
Town. This is but a sample of what and
who affected our town in 2010.

Today, the need is great.
Too many local families are living on the brink of homelessness.
Sometimes it seems there is no way to alleviate the hurt and fear.
But there is a way. Since 2000 those in need in our community have
been helped by the Season of Sharing fund, which distributes money
to agencies that provide assistance in emergency situations. There is no
red tape or administrative fees. All of the money - 100% - goes directly
to those who need it most.

You can help.
Your donation to Season of Sharing helps others stay in their homes
and care for their families. It helps them get through extraordinarily
difficult times.
Economic recovery is slow, while community needs continue to grow.
Your assistance is needed more than ever. Today, please make your
donation at www.CFSarasota.org.

Check out Traverse City's ghostly inn


By MIKE NORTON
TRAVERSE CITY CONVENTION
& VISITORS BUREAU
It's hard not to get a little
spooked at night if you're walk-
ing around the Grand Traverse
Commons.
Surrounded by thick for-
est, the turreted buildings of
the former mental asylum in
Traverse City, Mich., loom out
of the darkness like ruined
castles, filled with strange
shadows and furtive rustlings.
It should come as no sur-
prise, then, that dozens of leg-
ends about ghostly appearanc-
es have accumulated around
the 19th century asylum,
which is being gradually rede-
veloped into a smart village of
condos, boutiques, offices and
restaurants. There are stories
of mournful apparitions in the
halls, strange physical sensa-
tions and even an enormous
gnarled tree that's supposed to
mark the gateway to hell.
People can be forgiven for
letting their imaginations run
away with them. In spite of the
extensive makeover the former
asylum is getting, many build-
ings on the 500-acre Com-
mons campus are still wait-
ing to be restored, and their
gaunt, crumbling hulks seem
ready-made for scary stories of
demented spirits and restless
souls. Every year, fans of the
occult come to the Commons
searching for thrills and chills,
even though the owners of the
property don't exactly encour-
age the attention.
"There's a ton of us who
live and work here, and I've
only heard one or two stories
about things people couldn't
explain," says Kristen Mess-
ner, who works for the project
developers. "These are old
buildings, and sound some-
times travels in strange ways.
That's it."
The attitude toward haunt-
ings is a bit more welcoming
a few miles up the coast at
the Grand Traverse Light-
house Museum. For years, the
isolated lighthouse at the tip
of the Leelanau Peninsula has
held a family-oriented haunted
lighthouse program in honor
of its own ghostly inhabitant,
and it now has added a series
of October ghost walks. Small

The purchase of
AirTran by Southwest
Airlines has hit the head-
lines, and concerns have
been raised about what
it will do to fares. If this
acquisition goes through,
it will be one of many
consolidations in the
past 10 years: American
and TWA, US Airways
and America West, Fron-
tier and Midwest Air-
lines, Delta and North-
west, and, most recently,
United and Continental.
Aside from creating
larger airlines, these con-
solidations have elimi-
nated five airlines, and
that doesn't count the
demise of airlines that
went bankrupt - Leg-
end, Vanguard, Reno Air,
ATA, Midway Airlines,
Aloha Airlines, Hooters
Airlines, Independent Air,
Skybus and others.
The legacy airlines
control more than 60
percent of the market
share, but Southwest is
still a major player in the
aviation industry, car-
rying more passengers
within the 48 states than
any other U.S. airline, in-
cluding American, Delta,
Continental and United.


PHOTO COURTESY TRAVERSE CITY CONVENTION & VISITORS BUREAU
The gothic spires and walls of the former Traverse City Asylum, now known as the Grand Traverse Commons, have given rise to a host of ghost stories, though
developers of the 500-acre property try to discourage talk of hauntings and apparitions.


groups of visitors are invited in
on Friday and Saturday nights
to prowl the living quarters
and working spaces of the his-
toric 19th century buildings.
Established in 1850, the
Grand Traverse Lighthouse is
one of the oldest lights on the
Great Lakes. It occupies a lone-
ly point of rocky coast (now
the site of a state park) mark-
ing the outer edge of Grand
Traverse Bay, with sweeping
views of Lake Michigan and
the distant Manitou and Fox
Islands.
One believer in the light-
house ghost is museum
director Stefanie Staley, who
has spent more than her share
of fall evenings alone at the
isolated light station. She says
she's heard lots of inexplicable
noises: voices in the hall head-
ing toward the tower stairs,
and the sound of someone
with hard-soled shoes walking
across the hardwood floors.


"I hear it, I walk out, and
there's not a soul anywhere,"
she says.
Nor is Staley the only one
who's been dealing with
strange happenings. The
lighthouse runs a volunteer
keeper program where people
can stay in the lighthouse for
weeks at a time, caring for the
buildings and showing visitors
around. Over the years, several
volunteers have mentioned
strange phenomena: the sen-
sation of being brushed past
by a moving form, and in one
case actually seeing a man at
the doorway, kicking off his
boots.
Some locals claim the ghost
is that of Peter Nelson, a Dan-
ish ship captain who settled
in Northport and became the
lighthouse keeper from 1874 to
1890. But no one knows of any
particular scandals or secrets
associated with Nelson's life,
and the haunting - if that's


what it is - seems to be a
fairly amiable one.
Not so with the goings-
on across the bay at Bow-
ers Harbor, a lovely cove on
the western shore of the Old
Mission Peninsula, where the
area's most celebrated ghost
has been carrying on at the
former Bowers Harbor Inn for
decades. Genevive Stickney,
whose husband built the ram-
bling waterfront home in the
1880s, is said to have died in
the house under tragic circum-
stances. Although recent re-
search has cast doubt on much
of the backstory told about the
Stickneys (that Genevive was
a scorned wife who commit-
ted suicide by hanging herself
in the elevator shaft), the case
has been featured in several
books and television programs.
Guests, employees and
visitors to the inn (now home
of the Mission Table restau-
rant) insist that they have


experienced strange rapping
noises, doors slamming, lights
suddenly turning on, mirrors
and paintings falling from
walls. One restaurant guest
was severely frightened when
she looked into a full-length
upstairs mirror and saw the
reflection of another woman
standing behind her, dressed
in clothing from the 19th cen-
tury, her long hair pulled back
into a tight bun. When she
turned to speak to the stranger,
there was no one there.
Having a ghost on the prem-
ises isn't bad for business, so
long as things don't get out of
hand. Far from downplaying
their ethereal resident, the
owners of the Mission Table
and the adjoining Jolly Pump-
kin Brewery enjoy regaling
newcomers with tales of Gen-
evive's pranks. The restaurant
has even devoted a page of its

While Southwest has
been strong in the U.S.
market, I have also no-
ticed that as the legacy
airlines were controlling
more and more of the
market share, Southwest
was cautious and grow-
ing slowly.
The big reasons South-
west needed to take over
AirTran: Southwest need-
ed to expand quickly to
keep up with the other
merged airlines, South-
west's owners didn't
want a legacy carrier to
purchase AirTran, and
AirTran had a good cul-
ture fit with Southwest.
Combining with
AirTran makes good
business sense for
Southwest; it can add 38
cities relatively quickly,
and many of these new
markets are on the East
Coast, where Southwest
has had weak coverage.
Without this acquisition,
it would take Southwest
eight to 10 years to add
that many new cities.
AirTran could have
been bought by a legacy
carrier, and that is a
scenario I am happy not
to see. We have seen
legacy carriers buy out
other airlines, then scale
back service in the newly
acquired hubs. Bucking


this trend, Continental
has promised to cut no
more than 10 percent of
Cleveland flights for two
years after it completes
its merger with United,
or Continental will face a
$20 million fine.
Some of you may
remember when Cal-
ifornia-based Air Cal
and Pacific Southwest
Airways were bought in
the 1980s by American
and US Airways. Service
was scaled back, and air-
fares in California more
than tripled. Because of
the big increase in fares,
California state lawmak-
ers threatened to start an
intra-California airline
called Air Bear. Luckily
Southwest came into the
picture, took over the

FINE WHINES


Working for a living


By BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

National Football
League executives have
been kicking around the
idea of adding two games
to the league's 16-game
schedule. The own-
ers' collective bargain-
ing agreement with the
players' union expires in
March, and the addi-
tional two games - with
a matching reduction in
the four-game preseason
schedule - is on the
table.
The possibility seems
to have left the players
cold. If one has spoken
out in favor of swap-
ping two "real" games
for two that don't count,
I haven't heard about
it. And I would have,
because it would have
been news.
I can understand the
players' feelings. Starters
don't play much in the
preseason but would be
expected to participate
in all 18 regular season
games - provided they
weren't hurt, which they
believe is a significantly
greater risk if they have to
play two extra games.
Because the average
career is only 3.3 years,
according to the players'
union (whether due to
injury, retirement or be-
ing cut by a team), more
"serious" games means
more chances to get hurt.
Eight 18-game seasons is
the same as nine 16-game
seasons - an extra year,
in effect.
But the real issue, of
course, is money. Few of


the players and former
players I've heard weigh
in on the extended season
have flatly opposed it;
most have seemed open
to discussing it - pro-
vided they get paid more.
As Cris Carter, a Hall of
Fame-bound former wide
receiver and ESPN ana-
lyst, put it, who wouldn't
expect to get paid more
for more work?
Well, everyone who
has a real job. I call them
the people who buy the
tickets.
I'm not saying that
being a pro football
player is easy, but the
minimum salary - the
minimum -is $310,000
per year. Not even
newspaper editors make
that kind of money.
And many players make
far, far more, and get
bonuses, in addition
to endorsements and
whatever money they
were able to save from
playing in college (a
little joke there - a very
little one).
Then there's the little
thing I call the economy.
People who make several
hundred thousand to
several million dol-
lars a year are probably
oblivious to the fact that
a lot of people used to
punching a clock for a
living don't currently
have a job. Or the fact
that cutbacks have left
many businesses under-
staffed, meaning that
people who still have
a job are doing more
work for the same pay
- and are happy to be
employed, for a lot less


than $310,000 a year.
(Actually, that would be
a decent decade for a lot
of working people in this
area.)
Now don't get me
wrong. If I played pro
football, I'd want my
union getting me as
much money as it could
even if it just meant a
substantial increase in
my tattoo budget. But
the oft-repeated phrase
that the new negotiations
pit billionaires against
millionaires is dead on.
Even a left-wing, pinko,
commie, "workers unite"
kind of guy like me can't
work up a lot of sympa-
thy for either side in this
debate.
The owners didn't
make their money from
football and will con-
tinue to live in the style
to which they've become
accustomed if there's no
football next year (like
that's a real possibility).
Superstar players have
more than enough money
to support their families
for generations to come,
so they won't be at a soup
kitchen if they don't play.
Veterans, high-priced
rookies - I think they'll
be OK too.
Seems to me the only
people who might take
a hit if there's no new
deal would be the play-
ers making "minimum"
wage - late draft choices
and free agents. Some of
them could have to get a
real job.
See why going to class
was important, guys?

bmudge@venicegondolier.com


For the sake of agreement


Around the time come-
dians lost interest in Chia
Pet jokes, I lost interest
in talking about subject-
verb agreement. The
topic seems tired, holds
no challenge and is just,
as comedians might say
of Chia Pet punch lines,
"too easy."
Everyone knows it's
"Karen thinks" and not
"Karen think." Everyone
knows that "the dog lies"
but "dogs lie." Where's the
fun in talking about that?
Sure, people sometimes
lose track of their subjects:
"Karen, who along with
her brothers and sisters,
own a lot of dogs." That
should have been "owns."
Yet caution - not insight
- is all that's required to
avoid these flubs.
But on a recent trip to
the drug store, I got a clear
reminder that even things
we write off as old news
may deserve a second
look. That reminder came
on a display rack contain-
ing a Chia Pet in the form
of one Barack Obama.
That fast, Chia Pets were
funny again. One glimpse
at the 44th president's
sprout-covered terra cotta
noggin and I found myself
wishing, for the first time
in years, that I worked at
an office with a gag gift
exchange (or, perhaps,


had a relative with a sense
of humor).
I don't even know
whether the item was
manufactured as a tribute
or a jab. I just know that
Chia Pet makers, the wit-
ting or unwitting kings of
the gag gift industry, had at
last outdone themselves.
Taking a lesson from
our green-haired com-
mander in chief, I sud-
denly found myself able
to look past the cliched,
too-obvious topic of sub-
ject-verb agreement to
realize that it can in fact
be interesting. Scratch
the surface and you'll
find some situations that
are challenging and even
worth talking about.
Look at this sentence:
$20 million in $5 bills was
distributed among at-
tendees. Should that "was"
be "were"? After all, we're
talking about a plural
number of $5 bills, right?
How about if we sim-
plified that to just "$20
million was distributed"?
We're still talking about
dollars, plural, so why
wouldn't you say "$20
million were distributed"?
And what about "A
bunch of $5 bills were
distributed"? Surely
"bunch" is singular. So
why wouldn't we use the
singular verb and say,
"A bunch of $5 bills was
distributed."
Some grammar experts
like to debate this stuff.
They pull out terms like
partitivee" and "synesis"
and "notional agree-
ment." Partitives are
phrases like "many of," "a
portion of" and "most of"
that indicate the quantity
of a noun. "Many of the
visitors" tells you we're


talking about a portion of
the visitors. Partitive is a
nice term, but it doesn't
tell you anything you
didn't know already.
"Synesis" is the idea
that meaning, not gram-
matical structure, dictates
some choices. So in "A
bunch of $5 bills were,"
we choose the verb based
not on the singular nature
of "bunch" but on the
conceptual knowledge
that we're focusing not
on one bunch but on the
individual things that
make it. "Notional sub-
ject" is similar. It's why
you would say "A flock of
birds was flying by" but
you might perceive the
birds as individuals in the
following sentence if that
sentence was "They were
hunting."
Again, that doesn't tell
you anything you didn't
know already. Simplic-
ity, not complex analysis,
is key here. When you're
talking about $20 mil-
lion in $5 bills, you may
intend it as a singular
sum: "$20 million in $5
bills was distributed." Or
your intended subject
may be the bills them-
selves, in which case you
could make a case for
the plural: "$20 million
in $5 bills were given to
the children." Neither is
wrong.
Your best guide is com-
mon sense - the same
resource that stopped me
from purchasing my own
presidential Chia Pet.

Calculate the ways to boost frequent-flier miles


By TOM PARSONS
THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS

In recent weeks, I have
been bombarded with re-
quests by airlines want-
ing me to buy frequent-
flier miles. I've received
mailings and e-mails,
and the other week I was
offered 985 miles for $30
when I checked in at the
airport kiosk.
The hawking of miles
is maddening because
it can be difficult to re-
deem those miles.
This summer, airlines
wanted 40,000 to 50,000
miles for round-trip
domestic award tickets


AIRTRAN
FROM PAGE 6

competition, and many
U.S. cities will see overall
price drops.
We will still see South-
west's sales, but now
they'll be available on
more routes. You'll also
have the benefit of two
free bags, which can cost
you up to $120 round
trip on other carriers; no
change fees, which can
cost up to $150 on do-
mestic flights with other
airlines; and you can
make a reservation by
phone at no extra cost.
The legacy carriers
charge these fees. AirTran
also has baggage and
change fees, and you
have to pay $6 to re-
serve a seat more than
24 hours in advance.
With this acquisition,
those fees will fly away,
making more than 100
destinations free of these
charges.
From 2005 through
2009, Southwest ran
many airfare sales out
of Dallas for $198 round
trip, flying on Tuesdays,
Wednesday and Sat-
urdays. During the last
week of September 2010,
the airline still offered a
great sale to many of its
destinations, including


because it was peak sea-
son. It's common to pay
three cents a mile when
buying miles, so it would
cost you up to $1,500 for
that "free" ticket, plus a
processing fee.
There are times when
it may make sense to
buy miles, but you have
to price a ticket on your
route before you buy
miles and make sure that
award seats are available
in the amount you want
to spend. If you're 1,000
miles short of an award
ticket, it would cost less
to buy enough miles
to get an award than
it would to purchase a

West Coast cities for $218
round trip for travel on
those same days of the
week.
The sale fare increase
was only 10 percent, even
though Southwest was
facing fuel costs seven to
eight times higher than
in 2005.
Dallas-area travelers
will lose AirTran nonstop
flights to Atlanta, Orlan-
do and Milwaukee, but
we'll still have nonstop
service on competing
carriers.
You will see the best
bang for your buck come
2014, when the Wright
Amendment flies away
and Southwest can offer
nonstops to any destina-
tion in the U.S., including
Alaska and Hawaii.
The difference in fares
between cities where
Southwest has service
and nearby cities with-
out Southwest can be
dramatic. For example,
we recently checked
round-trip flights from
Dallas and found fares
for $178 to Flint, Mich.,
but Saginaw, which is
only 30 miles away, cost
$338. Dallas to Ontario,
Calif., was $218 round
trip, while Palm Springs
was $448 round trip.
Acquiring AirTran is
probably the biggest task
that Southwest has ever
encountered.


regular ticket. Legacy
carriers such as Ameri-
can and Delta periodi-
cally offer bonuses when
you buy miles that allow
you to earn up to 30
percent more, so look for
bonuses before you buy
or transfer miles.
The airlines are also
advertising transferring
miles, but it isn't free to
do that. When we recent-
ly checked, American
was charging one cent
per mile for transfers,
plus a $30 fee. If your
brother has 10,000 miles
and you want to give
him 15,000 miles, you
should have him transfer

Remember that it takes
time for airlines to com-
pletely blend, so once
this is approved, it will
take a year or more be-
fore the two brands can
become one. Although
Southwest and AirTran
were both the fare setters
where they flew, neither
of them could offer the
number of cities that the
merged legacy airlines
were offering.
Together, Southwest
and AirTran will force the
major airlines to offer
even lower airfares than
before, giving more U.S.
travelers the freedom to
fly at a reasonable price.

North Port ER reports banner first year


By TARCHIANA MITCHELL
SUN INTERN

A customer service rat-
ing in the high 90s shows
the North Port Sara-
sota Memorial Hospital
Emergency Room staff is
improving the well-being
and meeting the needs
of North Port residents,
according to its adminis-
trator.
More than 20,000 pa-
tients were seen this past
year at the new emer-
gency room, said North
Port ER site administra-
tor David Carter, and the
facility is expecting an 8
to 10 percent increase in
its second year, he said.
Before the North Port
ER's $20 million build-
ing was constructed,
the closest hospitals
available to North Port
residents were miles
away in Punta Gorda,
Port Charlotte, Venice
and Englewood.
Now, months into its
second year, North Port
residents are able to
make a much shorter
drive to an emergency

room that they can call

Blade Boulevard.
According to Kim
Savage, spokeswoman
for Sarasota Memorial
Health Care Systems,
the North Port ER is one
of largest free-standing
emergency rooms in
Florida. It is also the
region's first and only
free-standing ER, which
means that the emergen-
cy room is not physically
attached to a hospital
and treats only patients
who need emergency at-
tention and don't need to
be admitted.
"The average wait time
in our ER is two hours,
which is really good,"
Carter said. "It is a little
bit of a challenge for
staffing because we are
really busy some days
and more calm on oth-
ers, but we have been
very steady overall."
Carter reported late
last week that more than
850 patients have been
seen so far this month.
The ER has one ambu-
lance onsite to transport

lotte, Lee and Collier
counties. Funded in
part by state and federal
agencies, and support
from private founda-
tions and individual
coni, iltitions, Senior
Friendship Centers
serves more than 10,000
older adults annually.

admitted to any hospi-

contracts with Ambitrans
as a backup when its
ambulance is in use. The
ER also has a helipad
for air transportation
via helicopter for severe
emergencies. It's used
about five times a week.
The North Port ER
also offers a range of
outpatient services,
including labs, radiol-
ogy, ultrasounds, home
health care, rehab, X-ray
services, CT scans and
an MRI department. The
building's first floor is
50,000 square feet, holds
21 treatment rooms and
is open to the public
24/7. The building's
second floor is home to a
variety of medical offices.
"What's great about
our facility is that you
can get an X-ray at 3 a.m.

said. "We are also open-

save up to $120 round
trip on baggage fees


ments before they went

a.m. for mammograms."
At the ER's September
2009 opening, people
were unsure of how
receptive the North Port
community would be
to having its own emer-
gency room - but the
20,000 patient count for
the first year is two to
three times more than
what was expected,
according to hospital
officials. The number of
employees at the ER has
increased slightly since
February 2010, from 75
to 78.
"I tell my staff to come
to work to have fun and
do patient care along the
way," Carter said.
The hospital plans to
gradually increase the
number of staff as the
number of patients con-
tinues to climb.
The average age of
North Port residents is
38, an age at which many
people already have or
are beginning to start a

Last year the emergency

babies.
The Sarasota County
Public Hospital Board
has an affiliation with
Florida State University,
allowing its medical stu-
dents to intern at SMH
and other health-care
facilities, but not at the
North Port ER. The FSU
medical students need a
broader range of expe-
rience than what the
emergency room has to
offer, according to hospi-
tal officials.
The North Port ER
does have a shadowing
program with students
from North Port High
School.
"We had a girl who
wanted to be a neurosur-
geon, but through shad-
owing at our emergency
room decided she'd
rather pursue physical
therapy," Carter said.
The ER offers shad-
owing with doctors,
nurses and physical
therapists for the high


school students. Carter
finds the shadowing to
be very rewarding and
tells the high schoolers,
"Follow your passion, get
involved and make a dif-
ference."

SERIOUS CONSIDERATIONS
REGARDING YOUR ORAL HEALTH
We appreciate these are difficult economic times,
causing budget management challenges. Yet, there are
compelling reasons not to disregard your oral health.
Dental neglect is costly to correct. In addition to losing
valuable natural teeth; new research links gum and bone
infection in the mouth to health problems such as heart
attack, stroke, and diabetes.
Periodontal bacteria can travel in the blood stream and
cause infections to major organs.
Periodontal infection has also been linked to
respiratory problems. In pregnancy, periodontal disease
increases the risk of delivering pre-term.
National Institute of Dental Research statistics project
that 90% of people over age 13 have some stage of gum
disease. Do not overlook the importance of seeing your
dental health professional.

SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIER SUN
The Venice Interfaith Com-
munity Association presents a
five session educational series
on religious tolerance with focus
on Islam, in collaboration with
the Islamic Center of Bradenton
and Sarasota. Islamophobia and
fear have equated this major
religious group with terrorism,
more than with its core qualities
of love and charity. In an effort
to bring about understanding,
we ask "Can't We All Just Work
Together?"
The schedule for the series
entitled, "Islam: Beyond Head-
lines and Sound Bites" follows:
* Monday, Jan. 17, keynote
address by Rev. Bernice Pow-
ell Jackson, United Church of
Christ, Tampa, with a commem-
oration of Martin Luther King,
Jr. and his vision of "Beloved
Community"
* Monday, Jan. 24, "Introduc-
tion to Islam"
* Monday, Jan. 31, "History of
Islam"
* Monday, Feb. 7, "Islamopho-
bia and the Western Satan"
* Monday, Feb. 14, "Sum-
mary and Discussion" with Dr.
Andrea Blanch, founder of the
Center for Religious Tolerance,
Sarasota.
All sessions begin at 7 p.m.

Good businesses -
businesses that survive
tough times and thrive
during prosperous days
- are committed to care-
ful evaluation. Permit me
to use a mantra and site
one source who will lead
you further in this think-
ing. Here is the classic
statement: Begin with the
end in mind. The source
is Stephen Covey and his
7 Habits of Highly Effec-
tive People.
Jan. 1,2011, is upon
us. The race of life we
know as 2010 is fading.
It is popular to encour-
age people to make
resolutions for good,
holy and purposeful
goals for the new year.
Permit me to encourage
another strategy.
First, evaluate 2010.
Ask all the appropri-
ate questions regarding
goals, objectives and
strategies. Ultimately,
you want to know, "Did I
finish well?" Did mid-
year obstacles wear me
out? Or, did my mid-
year successes produce
distractions so profound
that I took the rest of
the year off and coasted
to the finish line?
Thinking through the
competition that is your
life profoundly impacts
your future results. Suc-
cessful athletes and solid
businesses practice this

it is time to ask a second
question. "What do I
want out of 2011?"
People of faith will
follow a strategy that
likewise begins with a
review: "What did God
want out of my life this
year and what does God
want out of my 2011?"
Regardless of where
the question of faith
finds you, it will be to
your profit to begin
2011 with the end of
2011 in mind. This be-
comes more important
for those who find 2010
to have been less than
successful in achieving
their dreams. I recom-
mend writing a simple
declarative sentence. It
might be something like
this: "In 2011, I intend

then fill in the blank.
It sounds simplistic.
Yet, beginning with the
end mind is a straight-
forward strategy that
reminds us life has a
finish line. During the
year, maybe the first of

out that piece of paper,
that electronic line on
your PDA, and remind
yourself, "Now where
is that line and how
much time and distance

of 2011?"

The Ladies League of the Bird Bay Golf Club held its annual Christmas luncheon at Pelican Pointe Golf & Country Club in early
December. Once again, the gals elected to forgo their gifts to send the money to The Salvation Army, along with the collection of
nonperishable food for The Salvation Army's food shelf.


Kristi Adkins and Shawn Sellitti took their 4- and 5-year-old preschoolers from Venice-Nokomis
United Methodist Child Care Center to ring bells for The Salvation Army at the Nokomis Village
Publix during the holidays. The children took their own bells and enjoyed learning about giving
and helping others.

SUN PHOTOS BY LEE ROYSTON Francis Hoath with his 1929 Ford Model A Roadster Shay.
Paul Saisselin's 1929 Model A Ford.




Which is the real 1929 Ford Roadster?


~. ~

I


II


Last week's feature
vehicles were excel-
lent fiberglass re-
productions that fooled
even some experienced
hobbyists. While on the
road or parked, the pub-
lic gives them thumbs
up and their comments
indicate they thought
they're original. "Don't
ask, don't tell" works
very well for these types
of automobiles and the
owners.
The beautiful Robin's
egg blue Roadster is
the real Ford through-
out, restored to original
condition except for the
color blue, which was the
choice of Port Charlotte
residents Paul and Carol
Saisselin, the owners. In
their and my opinion, it's
prettier than the darker
factory version. They get
compliments on its looks
regularly. Judges at car
shows still award them
trophies, and that's good
enough for everybody
concerned.
In interviewing Paul,
I found he was a native
of Oswego, N.Y., until a
senior in high school.
At that time his parents
moved to Rumford, R.I.,
taking along this young
man and his 1930 Ford
Coupe, which was his
regular transportation in
those days. Cars were a
fascination for him then
and ever since, however
college, marriage, raising
a family and work took
priority over playing with
automobiles.
Saisselin's job of sell-
ing heavy construction
equipment went on to be
a 38-year career in that
industry. Life was treat-
ing he and Carol, his wife
since 1984, very well.
Their six children - Paul
Jr., Bruce, Brad; Derrith,
Kathy and Pam - grew
into adults and left home
to pursue their own lives.
Florida fever then over-
took Paul then Carol and
they began slowly to plan
to move south.
Carol had a very
interesting position as
administrative assistant
to the president of the
Jewelers Board of Trade,
a national organization,
for 10 years, at which
time she retired. Once
in the Sunshine State,
she was hired as sec-
retary to Bob Naylor,
assistant fire chief of
Punta Gorda, who later
became chief. After five
years with the city, she
retired again and plans
to remain that way in
the future.
Finding some free
time for themselves, Paul
decided to rekindle the
spark of the old Ford he'd
enjoyed so much in his
youth. He told me that
many, many times the
memory of that vehicle


Two 1929 Ford Model As. Can you tell which one is real?


stayed with him enough
to get serious about buy-
ing one once again. A
search turned up nothing
until they had relocated
to Charlotte County in
1991. Traveling around
the area, Paul learned
of a rundown 1929 Ford
pickup in a barn. A deal
was made, the truck be-
came his. After hundreds
of hours and many dol-
lars it really looked good.
This couple had fun with
it and, since no one else
had that body style, it
was very popular every-
where they went.
All very nice, but not
what Paul really wanted
- an open-air sport
roadster. During a visit to
Massachusetts, he found
his dream car, a 1929
Ford Roadster which he
purchased in 1996. A
son arranged to have it
shrink wrapped and per-
sonally towed the pro-
tected vehicle down to be
with his parents as their
new toy. Immediately
it was a big hit in the
hobby events throughout
Charlotte County.
Then came Hurricane
Charley which destroyed
much of the rented
garage where it was kept.
Damage to the Ford was
covered by insurance,
and repairs were made
and a complete paint job
got it looking as good or
better than before the
storm.
My observation of
this couple when arriv-
ing at old car activities
has them both with big
smiles on their faces.
Paul always explains to
everyone who asks how it
works, drives and shows
off the rumble seat com-
partment, often times
allowing youngsters to sit
in it and even blow the
oogah horn.
He and wife are those
kind of people, unpreten-
tious and willing to share
this "blue gem" with oth-
ers. Say hello when you
see them out and about.
Both are active volunteers
at the Sun newspaper's
Mid-Winter Collector Car
Show and Open House


events. The next is sched-
uled for Feb. 12.

Shay Roadster
repro
The white-and-black
colored roadster is not
a true 1929 Ford, even
though the body is an
almost exact fiberglass
copy of an original. The
drive train is all Ford,
however it was mostly
manufactured in the late
'70s or very early '80s,
starting with the frame
of a series one Bronco
modified. The engine,
suspension, brakes and
steering are Pinto or Fair-
mont. When assembled
at the factory in the De-
troit area, they weighed
only 1,850 pounds, thus
with 88 horsepower,
these "cute" reproduc-
tions are quite peppy.
Originally planned for
Ford Motor Company's
50th Anniversary of
the 1928 Model A, the
company sent out glossy
colored brochures to
all Ford, Mercury and
Lincoln dealers, and
orders poured in. A 1,000
run limit was to be the
cut-off point with each
dealership getting at
least one Shay. When
in mid-1979 actual cars
were delivered to the
dealers, one Ford dealer
in New Jersey had pros-
pects lined up similar
to the immediate post
World War II days. Pro-
duction, however, came
to a halt in early 1982.
Great write-ups by Motor
Trend, Car and Driver
and other magazines
and happy testimonials
by owners just couldn't
save what some say
was a poorly managed
manufacturer from the
top down. They did go
on to produce reproduc-
tion 1955 T Birds. They
just couldn't turn a profit.
None of these "birds"
offered a soft top or
automatic transmission
which was a take away.
The big advantages of
the 1929 Ford style Shay
are that it looks old, yet
drives new, meaning


road speeds over 55 can
be maintained, and they
stop very well - sev-
eral times better than an
original. Best of all, plus
20 MPG, most any shop
and all Ford dealers can
perform regular main-
tenance easily. Tires are
available, collector car
insurance accepts them.
And as today's Shay
owner, Francis Hoath, 76,
will quickly tell you, they
are real fun to own and
drive. He's had two and
admits they are far better
than any of the many
Crosleys he's owned.
I wrote about him June
13, 2008 when he was
heavily involved with
Crosley vehicles. At that
time Shay Model As were
not on his mind. Now a
little older and wishing for
something easier to drive,
he found the pictured
deluxe roadster fits his
lifestyle perfectly. Again
Francis reminded me he's
been interested in old
cars all his life, so much
he made a copy of a 1901
Oldsmobile followed by
another, a duplicate of a
1903 Ford which he built
at Lajes Field, Portugal
while in the Air Force
many years ago. Pres-
ently this vehicle is on
display in a museum near
Birmingham, Ala.
Briefly, his skills
include being a machin-
ist-model maker and
plumber. As he became
older that cold Michigan
weather became "just
too much," and a move
to Punta Gorda solved
that problem. Working as
a local plumber for nine
years, then for himself
doing core drilling in
Southwest Florida until
retiring. Now the old car
hobby occupies his days
and Hoath says "he loves
it." Sounds good to me!
Look for him any-
where vintage car people
gather. He'll fill you in on
details about the Shay
and Crosleys. He is such
a gentleman "Everybody
Loves Francis"!
If you own a vehicle
that has 1,000 or more
horsepower, please


Uncomplicated engine of the'29 Model A.


Pinto/Fairmont engine of the Shay.


Uncomplicated Dash of the Model A.


e-mail me some brief
details, a photo and your
phone numbers. For now
at least, a number of
such vehicles are wanted
to be put on a special
display during the Jan.
22, Salvation Army Fund
Replenishment Open

that old blender, bassinet, those bikes and boxes of
cast-off clothing? Schedule a garage sale to convert

around easily.




SeMake a list of your best items, and then call

calling!


* Clean and polish your items. Fold clothes
neatly and arrange them by size and gender. Group a Through The Sun Classified, you'll send the
small pieces (like jewelry) together into plastic bags news of your sale to thousands of potential buyers.

For oil changes, hot is better - but be careful


Dear Tom and Ray:
I always change
my own oil on
my cars. I let the car sit
overnight and change
the engine oil the next
day. My daughter said
that it would be better to
change the oil when the
engine is hot, like when I
get home from work. So
... which is the preferred
method? -Will
Ray: Your daughter's
right, Will. The reason we
change the oil when it's
warm is because it flows
better and comes out
faster.
Tom: It's not a big deal.
But when the oil is cold,
it's more viscous (it's
thicker), so it drains out
more slowly. And even if
you're willing to wait lon-
ger for it to drain out, it's
likely that a bit more oil
will remain coated on the
inside walls of the engine
when you're done. Not
a lot more than if the oil
was warm, but a little
more.
Ray: So I'd say a warm
oil change is a little bit
better.
Tom: Now, there is one
major disadvantage to a
hot-engine oil change: It
hurts! First of all, when

TALK CARS
by Tom & Ray Magliozzi


Because anyone who owns a car
needs a laugh twice a week.

you remove the drain
plug, if you don't know
what you're doing, hot
oil can run down your
arms. And it's not as
pleasurable as the room-
temperature arm grease
you get from eating one
of those delicious In-N-
Out (of the cardiac unit)
burgers.
Ray: A lot of today's
cars also have oil filters
that are really buried
and hard to reach. So
the chances of burning
yourself while trying to
unscrew one of those is
quite high.
Tom: So, for that
reason, here's what we
recommend. First, don't
do the oil change when


the engine is red-hot. Let
it sit for half an hour or
an hour before starting
your work. The oil will
still be warm enough
to flow easily, but the
exhaust manifold won't
be glowing red and 800
degrees.
Ray: Second, wear a
protective glove, like a
welder's glove or a large
kitchen mitt (they make
some with fingers) to
protect your hands and
forearms.
Tom: Or just change
the oil when the engine
is cold. You'll have to
wait a little longer for it
to drain if you want to
get most of the oil out.
And a small amount
will be left behind. But
you'll still get 98 percent
of the benefit of the oil
change. And you'll be
able to keep all of your
arm hair.

New suspension
will keep
batmobile on road
Dear Tom and Ray:
My third, black Mer-
cury Grand Marquis,
"Batmobile," is a 2002
with 80,000 miles on


it. Yesterday my dealer
told me that the air bags
have aged -lost their
elasticity, inflatability
and verve. My mind
leapt to my 62-year-old
breasts as the service
manager described the
problem. If they were
not replaced, he said,
one day I would see my
car riding very low and
hear the pump, which
inflates the bags, run-
ning hopelessly. The
cost of replacing these
bags is $1,200. I plan to
keep the car at least an-
other two years. A good
new bra is $30. That's
a big difference. What
is your advice? Shall I
make the repair? - Fee
Tom:$1,200 is a lot of
money, Fee. That's 40
bras.
Ray: The air bags
your dealer is talking
about are not the driver
and passenger air bags
that protect you in an
accident;they're the
rubber air bladders that
serve as springs in this
car's air suspension
system.
Tom: That's what gives
you that pillowy, tush-
coddling ride you know
and love. But it has a


downside.
Ray: Over time, the
rubber degrade sand
starts to leak, and then
the air pump has to run
more and more fre-
quently to try to keep the
bladders inflated. In the
worst-case scenario, one
or more of the bladders
fails completely, and it'll
be like driving without
springs.
Tom: But if the dealer
is just warning you that
they're starting to wear
out, and he's suggesting
that you replace them in
advance of any problem,
I'd hold off. They may
degrade slowly enough
that your problems dur-
ing the next two years
will be minimal, or even
nonexistent.
Ray: If the bladders are
actually leaking,then you
have a couple of choices:
You either can pony up
the big bucks and pay
the dealer for a whole
new system,or you can
replace the system with
a more traditional set of
springs.
Tom: There are "con-
version kits"available for
cars with air suspension
systems. Why? Because
when people find out


they have to fork over
$1,200 for a new system,
they freak out.
Ray: So your other
option is to find an
independent shop
you like (try searching
at www.cartalk.com/
mechanics),and ask a
mechanic there to give
you a price on the pur-
chase and installation of
a conversion kit. It'll still
cost you hundreds, but
at least you'll be able to
afford underwear. Good
luck, Fee.

Auto complaints had a sudden acceleration in 2010


By JERRY HIRSCH
Los ANGELES TIMES
LOS ANGELES (MCT)
- Driver complaints to
federal highway safety
regulators soared this
year, spurred by a slew of
Toyota Motor Corp. re-
calls and a rush by other
automakers to announce
fix-it campaigns that
focused the public's at-
tention on auto defects.
The National Highway
Traffic Safety Adminis-
tration received more
than 40,000 complaints
through Dec. 14, accord-
ing to an analysis by
automotive research firm
Edmunds.com. That's
four times the volume of
recent years.
"People are now more
aware that there is an
agency called NHTSA
and that you can com-
plain to it. Complaints
are a good thing," said
Clarence Ditlow, execu-
tive director of the Cen-
ter for Auto Safety.
Toyota, long consid-
ered one of the most
reliable brands, was
the subject of more
than a quarter of the
complaints. Its ratio of
complaints to 100,000
vehicles sold jumped to


nearly 87 so far in 2010
from 37 a year earlier.
This week Toyota agreed
to pay $32.4 million
in fines for failing to
promptly inform regu-
lators of defects in its
vehicles, instead allowing
millions of potentially
dangerous vehicles to
remain on the nation's
roads.
Nissan had the second-
worst ratio, at nearly 62
complaints per 100,000
vehicles sold; Volkswa-
gen was third at nearly
58. The industry average
was 47 complaints per
100,000 vehicles sold, up
from fewer than 30 in
2009.
NHTSA is hearing from
people such as Mark
Cox of Leesburg, Va. He
filed a complaint after
his 2003 Subaru Legacy
sedan and his 2004 Nis-
san Quest minivan both
failed routine state safety
inspections because of
clouded headlight lenses.
"They start to oxidize,
and that reduces the
amount of light that
is transmitted out of
your headlights. That is
a safety and durability
issue," Cox said, adding
that he learned to file the
complaints while reading


about the Toyota auto
defects issues.
"Maybe as more
people bring these issues
to light and NHTSA looks
at them some of these
problems will get fixed,"
Cox said.
He still hasn't heard
back from the agency,
though. Nor has Hisham
Alam of Huntington
Beach, Calif., who filed a
complaint with NHTSA
this year after the engine
in his 2002 Toyota High-
lander froze.
"The engine loosened
from its bolts, break-
ing the head gasket and
causing the oil and cool-
ant to spill out," Alam
said. "The dealer said it
would cost $7,500 to fix."
He found similar
Toyota complaints on the
NHTSA site and decided
to file his own in Octo-
ber. He wound up paying
$2,500 to an independent
mechanic to rebuild the
engine.
"I am expecting that
over time, a lot of people
will file the same type of
complaint and that there
will be some lawsuit
or something that will
prompt Toyota to ac-
knowledge the problem"
and eventually recall the


vehicle and reimburse
people for their repair
bills, Alam said.
NHTSA said it had
received more than
64,000 complaints in
2010, compared with
about 35,000 in recent
years. (To arrive at its
total, Edmunds tossed
out duplicate complaints
from the same individual
and complaints that had
other inconsistencies.)
The agency reviews
every complaint, looking
for patterns that might
determine whether an
investigation is warrant-
ed, NHTSA spokesman
Eric Bolton said.
"Safety is the top
priority of the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, and
information from con-
sumers is a vital tool the
agency uses to identify
defects," he said.
Bolton urged drivers
experiencing problems
with a vehicle to file a
complaint, either online
at www.nhtsa.gov or
through the agency's
auto safety hotline at
(888) 327-4236.
Because of the volume
of complaints, the agen-
cy contacts a driver only
when more information


is required, he said.
"This stuff just sky-
rocketed," said Jeremy
Anwyl, chief executive
of Edmunds. "Toyota
was the trigger, but
consumers are more
sensitive and have more
knowledge about how to
complain."
Although higher than
in recent years, the
volume of complaints
is still tiny considering
that there are about 250
million vehicles on U.S.
roads, said Ditlow of the
Center for Auto Safety.
The volume of com-
plaints was higher during
President Carter's admin-
istration, Ditlow said, but
subsequent administra-
tions were less interested
in auto safety, and the
number of complaints
declined as NHTSA's
prominence faded.
"What we are seeing
once again is an admin-
istration and agency that
are saying, 'We welcome
your complaints. Tell us
what is wrong with your
car.' And it is saying we
will take action," he said.
The complaints to
safety regulators rose
as the number of ve-
hicles affected by recall
campaigns grew to 19


million, the highest level
since nearly 30 million
vehicles were recalled in
the U.S. in 2004, accord-
ing to the Edmunds data.
Anwyl said it made
sense that Toyota com-
plaints soared, given the
millions of its autos that
were recalled this year.
Volkswagen also has had
a spotty reliability record
and has had a high
volume of complaints for
several years, he said.
"The one that pops
out is Nissan," An-
wyl said. An Edmunds
review of comments
about Nissan by par-
ticipants in its online
forums found that most
had complaints about
transmission problems.
Among large automak-
ers, Ford Motor Co. and
Honda Motor Co. had the
lowest complaint ratios.
General Motors Co.
had the second-highest
volume of complaints
but ranked only sixth in
its ratio of complaints to
vehicles sold, according
to Edmunds.
"Ford is statistically
good," Anwyl said. "This
is another data point
that shows how domes-
tics pulled even with the
other manufacturers."


Ford's MyKey system to let parents censor teens' car radio


By BRENT SNAVELY
DETROIT FREE PRESS
DETROIT (MCT) -
Ford is planning to
give parents even more
power over teenagers
with technology that
can block out explicit
satellite radio channels
such as Howard Stern
and Playboy Radio.
The new feature will
debut next year as


standard equipment
on the Ford Taurus and
Ford Explorer, and will
eventually be available
across most Ford and
Lincoln vehicles.
"Ford wants to give
parents peace of mind
that their kids are follow-
ing practical household
rules in the car," Graydon
Reitz, Ford's director of
electrical and electronic


systems engineering,
said in a statement.
The technology works
by screening out more
than a dozen channels
labeled by Sirius Satel-
lite Radio as "explicit"
and will be part of
Ford's MyKey system.
Sirius XM Radio could
not be immediately
reached for comment.
According to its Web


site, the company al-
ready allows customers
to block channels with
explicit programming
by calling a toll-free
number and requesting
a family plan.
Launched in the sum-
mer of 2009, MyKey is
standard on most Ford
cars and trucks in North
America.
MyKey is designed to


help parents encourage
safe teen driving habits.
The programmable key
can limit a vehicle's top
speed, the volume of the
audio system and can
mute the radio until the
driver and passenger
put on their seatbelt.
Ford said a recent sur-
vey revealed that nearly
60 percent of parents
with teens said they view


a feature that can block
adult radio programming
as important.
"Parents obviously
like this type of feature,
and many teens are
OK with it when they
hear parents may give
them the keys more
often if the car comes
with a technology such
as Ford's MyKey," Reitz
said in a statement.


2011 Ford Explorer a tech-heavy SUV more suited for on-roading


LOS ANGELES (MCT)
- Confronted with
rock-strewn hills, or
pavement that is flat,
straight and most likely
located in Illinois, drivers
of vehicles that easily
switch between two- and
four-wheel drive should
know which button to
choose.
But with its completely
redesigned 2011 Ex-
plorer, Ford has simpli-
fied the translation of 4x4
settings with a knob.
Conveniently located
near the driver's right
elbow and outfitted with
symbols for snow, mud


and sand that require
absolutely no under-
standing of the English
language, this knob is
emblematic of Ford's
entirely updated sport
utility vehicle.
The Explorer's new
Terrain Management
System exemplifies a
new Explorer philosophy
that is sophisticated and
technology-oriented
- one that is off-road
capable but ultimately
biased toward the street.
Powered by a 3.5-liter
V-6, the new version
comes with a 25 per-
cent improvement in


fuel economy over the
2010 version, up to 25
miles per gallon on the
highway. Seven seats are
now standard instead of
being offered as a factory
option and at additional
expense.
And there are inno-
vative safety features,
including two industry
firsts: inflatable seatbelts
for the middle row of
passengers, and a system
that corrects course on
this large utility vehicle
should it careen into a
curve at too high a speed
and start an unintended
detour off-road.


What isn't more is the
price. The 2011 Ford Ex-
plorer starts at $28,995 -
$1,100 less than the base
model for 2010. Still, for
all its advancements,
I found the Explorer
slightly wanting.
Driving the Explorer
for a day last week be-
tween the paved urban
sprawl of San Diego
and the dirt trails of
the Lions, Tigers and
Bears animal sanctuary
in nearby Alpine, I saw
Ford's intentions clearly.
The utility of its new
Explorer is more street
oriented than its prede-


cessor, the better to meet
customers' demand for
a less trucklike driving
experience.
Ford's research showed
that only 17 percent of
Explorer drivers ever
wheel their rides into the
wild. And for those who
do, Ford has made things
Neanderthal easy. Driver

The Explorer can
travel up hill and down
dale, as long as the ter-
rain isn't radically steep
or gnarly. It can still ford
a stream, if the water
doesn't wash up much
higher than its nine
inches of ground clear-
ance. And it can tow as
much as 5,000 pounds of
refrigerators, dirt bikes
or just plain dirt, but it
is no longer capable of
climbing rocks. For that,
the 2011 Jeep Grand
Cherokee is a better bet.

New year full

replaces hard
DEAR READERS: Wel-
come to 2011! While the
last year has been ardu-
ous for many of us, a new
one has arrived, bringing
with it our chance for a
new beginning.
Today is the day we
discard destructive old
habits for healthy new
ones, and with that in
mind, I will share Dear
Abby's often requested list
of New Year's Resolutions
- which were adapted
by my mother, Pauline
Phillips, from the original
credo of Al-Anon:
JUST FOR TODAY: I will
live through this day only.
I will not brood about
yesterday or obsess about
tomorrow. I will not set
far-reaching goals or try
to overcome all of my
problems at once.
I know that I can do
something for 24 hours
that would overwhelm me
if I had to keep it up for a
lifetime.
JUST FOR TODAY: I will
be happy. I will not dwell on
thoughts that depress me.
If my mind fills with clouds,
I will chase them away and
fill it with sunshine.
JUST FOR TODAY: I will
accept what is. I will face
reality. I will correct those
things that I can correct
and accept those I cannot.
JUST FOR TODAY: I
will improve my mind. I
will read something that
requires effort, thought
and concentration. I will
not be a mental loafer.
JUST FOR TODAY: I will
make a conscious effort
to be agreeable. I will be
kind and courteous to
those who cross my path,
and I'll not speak ill of
others. I will improve my
appearance, speak softly,
and not interrupt when
someone else is talking.
Just for today, I will
refrain from improving
anybody but myself.
JUST FOR TODAY: I will
do something positive
to improve my health. If
I'm a smoker, I'll quit. If
I am overweight, I will
eat healthfully - if only
just for today. And not
only that, I will get off the
couch and take a brisk

Dear Abby

walk, even if it's only
around the block.
JUST FOR TODAY: I
will gather the courage to
do what is right and take
responsibility for my own
actions.
And now, Dear Readers,
I would like to share an
item that was sent to me
by I.J. Bhatia, a reader who
lives in New Delhi, India:
DEAR ABBY: This year,
no resolutions, only some
guidelines. The HolyVedas
say, "Man has subjected
himself to thousands of
self-inflicted bondages.
Wisdom comes to a man
who lives according to the
true eternal laws of nature."
The prayer of St. Francis
(of which there are several
versions) contains a pow-
erful message:
"Lord, make me an in-
strument of your peace:
"where there is hatred,
let me sow love,
"where there is injury,
pardon;
"where there is doubt,
faith;
"where there is despair,
hope;
"where there is dark-
ness, light;
"and where there is sad-
ness, joy.
"0 Divine Master,
"grant that I may not so
much seek to be consoled
as to console;
"to be understood, as to
understand;
"to be loved, as to love;
"for it is in giving that
we receive,
"it is in pardoning that
we are pardoned,
"and it is in dying that
we are born to Eternal
Life."
And so, Dear Readers,
may this new year bring
with it good health, peace
and joy to all of you. Love,
ABBY

'After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father
which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy
kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in
heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive
us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us
not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine
is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever
Amen. Matthew 6:9-13.
Don't try to analyze or sermonize on this prayer just
gather up all your problems and simply slowly and
reverently repeat it. Let it be a daily part of you. In it
you are going to God in the words and in the name of
His Son. You are bound to get results.


HOROSCOPE
ARIES (March 21-April 19).There is a reason
why you are attached to things the way they
are. The comfort of knowing what's likely to
happen next makes you feel secure.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What would
your life look like ifyou didn't have a worry
in the world? Get a vision of yourself as
a completely carefree person, and then
analyze the vision.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).You can focus
straight ahead when that's what's needed.
But right now it is necessary foryou to use
your peripheral vision. Note the energy of
the people who surround you.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you are
tempted to quit, you can't help but think
about the other people in the world who will
continue working and how they might be
gaining an advantage.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).There is someone
whose energy feels overbearing to you. You
want to yell out,"Stop telling me what to
do!"The fact that this person is often right
makes the situation even more irritating.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).You start with an
intention, but you must remind yourself to
keep applying focus. Follow through. When
you've given enough attention to the matter,
you'll have the result.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have wisdom
to impart.Whether it lands well is not your
responsibility. You will do your best to show
someone the way, but every person must
decide what is best for him or herself.


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).You may
discover that you are paying someone to
do what you would have more satisfaction
doing all by yourself. Perhapsyou can cut the
expense and do more with less.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Realize
which relationships feed your soul, and put
most of your energy there. It only makes
sense to apply your creativity and imagina-
tion to the ones that give back to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Most people
take the first offer that comes along. It takes
courage to be as selective as you are. You
trust that there is something better out
there, and you're willing to go find it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You take note
of all of the freedoms and privileges you
have enjoyed simply becauseyou live where
you do. You will give back to the community
that supportsyou, and this will bring you
greatjoy.
PISCES (Feb.19-March 20).You will do
something courageous and, as it turns out,
rarely done in your social circle:You will ex-
press yourself without worrying how others
will judge you. It's liberating to do so.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY(Jan. 1).You'll achieve
meaningful professional accomplishments
thisyear, and the confidence you feel will
touch every part of your world. A fantasy
comes true in February. New characters
enteryour personal life in March. You'll take
a dreamy vacation in June. Invest in August,
and see the project through.Taurus and
Virgo people adoreyou. Your lucky numbers
are: 40,22,14,38 and 18.

Another look at

isometric exercise


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
You had an article that
focused on isometric
exercise and stated that
it strengthens muscles
(which I like) and makes
them grow. Does that
mean that if I do these
exercises I will develop
large, bulging muscles?
Do you have a set of these
exercises I could do? I am
a 70-year-old woman and
consider myself in pretty
good health. - A.L.
ANSWER: A 70-year-
old woman, even one "in
pretty good health," isn't
going to develop large,
bulging muscles regardless
of the kinds of exercise she
does. I might have oversold
the isometric a bit. The
topic is interesting and is a
way to do some strength-
ening exercises without
investing any money.
Let me give you a
picture of isometrics.
Imagine lifting a weight
held in your hand. You
bend your elbow to
bring the weight up. The
muscles on the front of
the upper arm bulge -
the biceps. It's shortening.
To return the weight to
the starting position, you
straighten your elbow.
The bulging biceps flat-
tens out. It's lengthening.
Now imagine hooking
your hands under the
top edge of a heavy desk
and trying to pull the
desk toward you. The
desk doesn't move. Your
muscles don't shorten
or lengthen. They stay
the same size. However,
tension develops in the
muscles because you're
straining. That's an
isometric exercise - no
change in muscle size. It
does increase strength,


but its benefits are limited.
Isometrics strengthen
muscles only at one point.
They don't add to athletic
ability where large ranges
of motions are necessary.
It's good for people with
arthritis. And it provides
people with a simple way
to get some exercise done.
When doing these exer-
cises, hold the straining
position for six seconds.
Keep breathing. If you hold
your breath, you could
faint. You don't have to
exert a maximum strain.
An isometric shoulder-
strengthening exercise is
done this way: Bend your
right elbow so your right
hand is on the left side of
your chest. Circle your right
wrist with your left hand.
Now pull downward with
your right arm but don't
allow it to move by holding
it firmly with your left hand.
That's an isometric exer-
cise - no movement, but
muscle-challenging

he is unable to answer
individual letters, but he
will incorporate them
in his column whenever
possible. Readers may

Cats and catnip


MUTTS By Patrick McDonnell


Dear Readers: Have you
ever watched a cat play-
ing with CATNIP? It can be
quite comical! Not all cats
react to catnip (kittens sel-
dom do), but for those that
do, they really have fun!
Related to mint, catnip
stimulates the cat's brain.
If your cat is playing with
catnip, it's probably best
just to let it play; some can
become aggressive. So,
learn how your cat reacts.
Catnip is sold loose and
in toys. To use it loose,
sprinkle a bit on the floor
(yes, it will be messy, and
keep from children), or put
some in a sock, then tie.
To maintain loose cat-
nip's freshness, store it in
the refrigerator or freezer
in a sealed, clearly labeled
container. Meow!

Dear Readers: Dennis L.
of San Antonio sent a pic-
ture of his 9-year-old Lab
mix, Amber (she's a golden
amber color with short
hair), mugging for the
camera and wishing ev-
eryone "Happy New Year,"

Year's hat barely balanced
on her head. To see Amber

Remembrance
party
Dear Heloise: We
recently lost our beloved
dog Rocky - such a tre-
mendous loss. So we had
a "remembrance" party.
We made homemade
ice cream and cake, invited
about 20 of our friends and
asked each to bring a bag of
dry dog/cat food or cat litter.
We had a ball. Our neigh-


Hints from Heloise

bors and friends socialized
and had a good time, and
we raised 144 pounds of
dog food, 50 pounds of cat
food and 50 pounds of cat
litter. We donated this to the
local animal shelter in his
memory.
We still miss him every
day, but a lot of animals
benefited from our party. -
A. Russell inWoodstock, Va.
I know the pain of los-
ing a beloved pet! How
thoughtful, and nice to
know other animals will
have a supply of food, in
Rocky's memory. If only a
few of my readers fol-
lowed your example, just
imagine! - Heloise

Slippery surface
Dear Heloise: I have
read when someone has
used cat litter on a slippery
surface. As an EMT, I am
speaking from experience:
Please do not use cat litter
with CLAY, because this
makes the situation worse.
When the clay gets wet, it's
very slippery. I have seen
leg fractures from someone
putting cat litter on ice.
Regular cat litter is fine as
long as it doesn't have clay
in it. - D.M., via e-mail
D.M., thank you for the
caution. The original hint
was for use to aid in traction
on slippery streets. When
clay cat litter gets wet, it
becomes slick and is unsafe
to walk on. - Heloise

GettingceAheadORTealMsatBroketrn21


As 2011 kicks off, there's ample reason to feel upbeat
about the New Year. Buoyed by the strongest holiday
spending since 2006, retail sales will end 2010 on a
high note. Meanwhile, corporate earnings are up,
there's growth in the manufacturing sector; and
the number of people applying for unemployment
benefits fell last week to the second-lowest level since
July 2008.
Investor confidence is also up. Since the bull
market began in March 2009, the S. & P. 500 has
risen more than 86 percent; with a strong year-end
surge pushing it up 20 percent since September
alone. Consumer confidence is at its highest level
in five months, suggesting that people not only feel
better about the economy but also more secure in
their own circumstances. The extension of the Bush
tax cuts will also give a welcome boost to everyone's
discretionary spending.
Locally, foreclosed properties will continue to
challenge the pace of our housing recovery. Still,
with much the same selling environment present
throughout 2010, the agents of Michael Saunders &
Company managed to finish the year with unit sales
up 30.3% and dollar volume up 23.1%, versus 2009.
By comparison the overall market was up 3% in units
and .5% in dollar volume.
Forecasts from such closely-watched sources as
Moody's, Standard & Poor's, Wells-Fargo, the
Mortgage Bankers Association, Forbes, Morgan
Stanley, Bloomberg News and the Wall Street Journal


call for an increase in home-buying activity during
2011, if only a modest one. The past few years have
been fraught with tough economic lessons, prompting
most of us to save more and spend judiciously. The
world goes on, however; and in a Florida, whose on-
going growth has just earned it two more seats in the
House of Representatives, new arrivals (along with
those trading up, down or sideways) will help further
diminish our inventory of properties.
Still, with foreclosures keeping these inventories out
of balance with demand, prices nationally could
recede on average by as much as 6 - 9 percent in 2011.
Whether or not they do in Florida, remains to be
seen. But one thing is known for sure. Local home
prices are at levels not seen since 2001, well before
the housing bubble sent them soaring. At this point,
the savviest buyers are paying closer attention to what
the home will cost over the life of the mortgage; as
a modest up-tick in interest rates could potentially
blunt the benefit of any additional price declines.
Mortgage rates should remain historically low-for
now-but are forecast in many circles to increase
between now and the end of the year. For this reason,
buyers should think about securing a mortgage closer
to the beginning of 2011, rather than later on in the
year.
Meanwhile, if your goal is to sell your home in 2011,
here's why you should think of listing it within the
next 90 days:


* Interest rates have spiked recently, jumping over
/2 point in the last several weeks. Such volatility
is causing many buyers to act now for fear that
rates could climb later in the year. Plus, if rates
do go up, the number of buyers who qualify to
purchase homes at each price point-including
yours-will diminish proportionately.
* If your goal in selling is to trade up to a larger,
more deluxe or even smaller property, the time
is now to take advantage of the widest section
of buying opportunities currently available at
below-market values.
* Now is the busiest time of year in our market,
with seasonal buyers in town actively combing
the market for the unprecedented values they've
been hearing about all year long in the local,
national and international media. That means
MORE potential showings to MORE eager and
motivated buyers.
* Whatever your true reason is for wanting to
sell, once you become a buyer again you too can
enjoy today's unprecedented values.


The best environment for buying or selling in 2011
will likely occur between now and the end of March.
Talk to an agent from Michael Saunders & Company
to explore how you can maximize your buying or
selling opportunities by acting now and getting ahead
of the market.

GREAT STUFF FOR GREAT KIDS www.sesamestreet.org
The following bread-related words are
hidden in our puzzle. They may go
across, down or diagonally, in any direction.
Circle the words as you find them, and
then rearrange the uncircled 12 letters to
find a popular and tasty kind of bread.


In 1983, Japanese artist Tadahiko
Ogawa made a copy of Leonaido
Da Vinci's famous portrait
of Mona Lisa - completely
out of toast!
Are there any other works
of art featured in today s
paper' Can you find any
art miseuims in your area?

Astronauts don't take bread into space with
them because, in a weightless environment,
the floating crumbs would make a mess.
But since the 1980s, they have taken
tortillas. Not only do they taste great,
but they can be stored on the
International Space Station
for as long as 18 months!
The Johnson sisters each ate
something different for breakfast.
One had toast, one had cereal and
one had eggs. Amanda likes to eat
either toast or cereal. Both Sally
) and Joanne like eggs, but Joanne
did not have eggs today. Nor did
Joanne have any toast. So who
had what for breakfast?


Fed up with the burnt toast served in his company's
cafeteria, Minnesota mechanic Charles Strite
wanted something better. He decided to find a
more efficient way to make toast. His patent for
an automatic toaster was issued in 1921.
