Tanaka is top teacher


STAFF REPORT

A graduate of Venice
High is now Sarasota
County's High School
Teacher of the Year.
"I'm speechless," Dani-
elle Tanaka said through
tears at a surprise presen-
tation. "This is something
we all accomplished
together. We have a great
staff and great students
here at Venice High.
Thanks for helping me be
the best teacher I can be."
Tanaka; Gocio Elemen-
tary School fifth-grade
teacher Jessica Gard-
ner, Elementary School
Teacher of the Year; and
Victor Fernandez, a
seventh-grade teacher at
Booker Middle School,
Middle School Teacher
of the Year, were honored
Wednesday.
Superintendent of
Schools Lori White and a
team of district leaders,
past winners and com-
munity sponsors pre-
sented the winners with
balloons in their school's
colors and surprise


packages as their stu-
dents and peers helped
celebrate.
Tanaka has taught at
VHS since 2003. She cur-
rently teaches psychology,
sociology and American
government. She has
served as interim assis- '
tant principal, coached
the swim team, spon-
sored the school's Habitat r-
For Humanity Club and
headed up a drive to
collect more than 1,000
books for Venice Elemen-
tary students.
"Danielle has a passion
for teaching and a strong
rapport with students that
allows her to break down
the barriers that keep
them from reaching their
full potential," Principal
Jack Turgeon said. "She

Strong feelings about bypass vote


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
All of the land adjacent to U.S. 41
Bypass, south of Gulf Coast Boulevard,
is in unincorporated Sarasota County,
not the city of Venice. What is built there
must be consistent with the county's
comprehensive plan. Land use plans
there are the responsibility of the Sara-
sota County Commission.
County commissioners worry that
an ongoing effort to have the Sarasota/
Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organi-
zation authorize widening that southern
stretch of the bypass to six lanes will -
in effect place the MPO's transporta-
tion infrastructure plans ahead of the
county's land use plans.


County Commissioner and MPO
board member Jon Thaxton said that, in
the community north of Center Road,
"there is, I would suggest, one of the
greatest redevelopment opportunities
in the county, because it's presently
bowling alleys and warehouses and
things that typically are prime locations
for redevelopment initiatives." That is
because "they have large properties,
a lot of unified ownership and a lot of
uses that aren't necessarily dependent
upon being in an urban setting to be
functional," he said.
Thaxton said that neighborhood
potentially represents a redevelopment
opportunity not unlike other cities he

Crash victim's family


mulls lawsuit


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR
Sarasota's Board of County Commis-
sioners received a letter this week from
an attorney for the family of Kristina
Konovalov, the Venice High senior who
died after crashing her parent's vehicle
at the North Venice Bypass/Business 41
intersection.
The letter, from the Ellis Ged & Bod-
den law firm of Boca Raton, is a formal
request to preserve any surveillance
video from the school on Nov. 14, the
day of the crash.
Sarasota County School District
spokesman Scott Ferguson confirmed
the letter was received Monday, and
said the district would comply and
retain any footage available.
Police say the 17-year-old left the
scene of a fender bender on the island
and was headed north on U.S. 41


Business when she attempted to turn
south onto the Bypass. The Oldsmobile
SUV she was driving jumped the curb
at a high rate of speed, ejecting her, and
crashed. A crash report states she was
not wearing a seat belt.
The notice indicates Konovalov's
family is exploring a possible lawsuit
against the school and county.
Attorney Glen Ged and Konovalov's
parents did not return phone calls seek-
ing comment as of press time.
The Suncoast Firefighters Union held
a fundraiser for the family last weekend.
Venice firefighter Jerry Collins, who
organized the event, said roughly 400
people turned out, including family
and high school friends. He's awaiting
more contributions before tallying the
final amount and turning the funds
over to Konovalov's family.

A consultant for the city of Venice,
which is seeking to fill its city manager
position, revealed the list of top finalists
Wednesday, and it doesn't include any
local candidates.
Bob Slavin of Slavin Management
Consultants in Georgia, was directed by
city council to cull a list of more than 80
candidates down to five. He picked six,
plus five alternates.
The finalists are David Andrews, as-
sistant town manager in Paradise Valley,
Ariz.; Richard Gestrich, city manager of
Oviedo; Edward Lavallee, city manager
of Newport, R.I.; Pietro Scalera, vil-
lage manager of Riverside, Ill.; Michael


Stampfler, a gubernatorial appointee
who took over the financially distressed
community of Portage, Mich., and a
former city manager in Casselberry; and
JudyWhitis, longtime city manager in
Callaway.
Asked if any had left a position invol-
untarily, only Andrews indicated he left
a job in Oro Valley, Ariz., as city manager
under pressure after reducing staff
and services to adjust for the recession.
Two local candidates didn't make the
list. But Venice's Acting City Manager
Nancy Woodley and North Port's As-
sistant City Manager Daniel Schult were
selected among five backup candidates.
The others are Douglas Hewett,

Bicycle friendly

By MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER
More articles have been appearing in local
newspapers concerning safety issues regard-
ing bicycling. This is not bad, as it indicates
we are becoming more aware of the impor-
tance of bicyclists and motorists sharing our
streets and roads.
Venice will, over time, become a Bicycle
Friendly Community. If it is not the official
designation, bestowed by the League of
American Bicyclists, it will be through the
efforts of Bike/Walk Venice, the committee
working to obtain the official BFC designa-
tion. Either way, official or not, the improve-
ments being made will enhance the cycling
experience in our area.
So what are the things being done to
improve cycling? Educational courses will be
offered instructing riders on the various skills
of cycling. Additional bike racks are being
planned for the area. An area map showing
preferred bike routes, trails and points of
interest is being prepared. Articles will be
published on a regular basis continuing to
emphasize various laws and suggestions re-
garding safe cycling The committee will also
assist in the promotion of organized local
bike rides. These are a few of the things we
are working on to improve cycling.
Being a Bicycle Friendly Community calls
for the acceptance by both motorists and
cyclists to know and follow traffic laws. Just
as important, however, is to know and accept
each other's right to be on the road.
Ride safe, ride smart.

Dear Readers,
As we reach the end of the year, we would like to remind
you to take advantage of any dental insurance benefits that
you may have left before they expire.
While treatment is never dictated by insurance, if you have
treatment that you have not scheduled, or are experiencing
any dental concerns at all-now is a great time to come in
before the year is over.
Your dental health is our first priority. In addition to the
dental benefit that you may have, we also offer Care Credit's
healthcare credit card (WAC) to help you manage any
additional costs.
Please give us a call to schedule an appointment or to
" discuss the details of your dental care.

C'hale Happy Holidays,

Sheriff's office issues scam warning


The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office is warn-
ing residents about
seasonal door-to-door
scams, most recently a
scheme in which people
pose as students in-
volved in a fundraiser.
Reported incidents in-
dicate that well-dressed
college-age young men
are approaching people
under the guise of rais-
ing money for a school
trip. They claim that
they attend local uni-
versities and that their
parents live nearby.
The pitch differs, but
on some occasions the
suspects ask for $118
for a trip to an overseas
sports tournament. If
the homeowner seems
hesitant, they reduce the
price and offer magazine
subscriptions. The sus-
pect will even present an
official-looking flyer and
receipt, but they do not
contain valid informa-
tion.
In a separate but simi-
lar scam, the perpetrator
claims to be a state or
county worker doing
tree work or other con-
tracting in the area. On
at least one occasion the
suspect has distracted
the victim, entered their
home and left with their
checkbook or valuables.
Residents are remind-
ed not to open their
door to uninvited guests,
even if they claim to be
neighbors or to be doing
official work.
Anyone who feels un-
safe should call the sher-
iff's office immediately
so deputies can contact
the individuals and
verify the nature of their
business. Call 911 or the
nonemergency number,
941-316-1201.

Attorneys request case go directly to state Supreme Court


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
The 16 residents who
successfully took the
county to court regard-
ing a term limits charter
amendment announced
Tuesday their intention
to appeal a separate
portion of the judge's
ruling denying a motion
to dissolve the injunction
entered in a 2005 Sara-
sota County term limits
case.
The plaintiffs' at-
torneys also requested
that the appellate court
certify the case directly


to the Florida Supreme
Court as being of great
public importance.
"I think this case is go-
ing to proceed on a very
fast track," said para-
legal Michael Barfield,
an associate of plain-
tiffs' attorney Andrea
Mogensen.
In November, Senior
Circuit Judge Jack R.
Schoonover ruled that
the language in a ballot
question setting a limit
of three terms for county
commissioners was mis-
leading. At the same time
he denied Mogensen's
motion to dissolve an


injunction entered by
Circuit Court Judge
Deno Economou when
he found the county's
two-term limit, approved
in a 1998 referendum,
unconstitutional.
The 1998 provision is
still in the county charter.
Monday, the state
Supreme Court accepted
jurisdiction in a Fourth
District Court of Appeal
case regarding term lim-
its for Broward County
commissioners.
Barfield said the same
legal question is pre-
sented in both cases, but
the Broward case does


not directly affect the
Sarasota County case,
although it could if the
high court does not rule
promptly.
"It's difficult to answer
that question because
it depends on when
the court is going to
rule," Barfield said. "If
the court rules before
the qualifying deadline,
then it will answer all
of the questions that
we believe need to be
answered. If they do not
issue a decision before
the qualifying deadline
(noon on June 8),then
obviously there are some


unanswered questions."
Anyone interested in
running for Sarasota
County Commission
Seat 5 next year likely
hope the justices rule
soon, because the court's
action could result in
incumbent Jon Thaxton
being declared ineligible
to run for a fourth term.
Former North Port city
commissioner Van-
essa Carusone, a fellow
Republican, is his sole
opponent so far.
Barfield said that once
the Sarasota County case
is at the Supreme Court,
"It's quite possible you


will see ... a motion
to consolidate the two
cases together." The
reason for doing that, he
said, is "whatever Judge
Schoonover ultimately
decides would be sort
of academic. Our clients
obviously want to have
this issue resolved with
some degree of final-
ity before the qualify-
ing deadline, so in that
sense I think there is
some degree of urgency
in pushing this case on
up to the higher court
quickly."

By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
Acknowledging its limi-
tations, Sarasota County
Commissioner Jon Thaxton
on Tuesday moved in favor of
- and fellow commissioners
unanimously approved an
ordinance regulating dealers
and transactions in second-
hand goods.
The action updates a 1993
ordinance that law enforce-
ment officials said was
outdated.
"It's not perfect and we're
not living in a perfect world,"
Thaxton said. "We're going to
have to play it by ear until we
get some idea and concepts
of how it's working, but I
think that we have clear and
compelling evidence from the
sheriff's department that it's
working to our disadvantage
now. This is just an attempt
to -hopefully- close up


some of those loopholes, the
illicit transactions, and do so
as much as possible without
harming those that are doing
lawful business."
Commissioners also
unanimously approved a new
ordinance governing second-
ary metal recyclers and trans-
actions in scrap metals, after
altering some of the proposed
language.
Both ordinances place
greater responsibility on the
seller to prove ownership of
their items, such as retain-
ing receipts, and may reduce
the liability to the businesses,
which could have inadvertent-
ly purchased stolen items. The
rising prices of metals such as
gold, copper, platinum and
silver have resulted, locally, in
a rise in the number of thefts
and burglaries.
Representatives of both
industries suggested changes
to the ordinances.

Alachua County
Manager Randall Reid
has passed all pre-em-
ployment checks and is
clear for hire, a Sara-
sota County Human
Resources official said
in an email.
The checks included
credit; education; lo-
cal, state and national
law enforcement and
courts of law; motor
vehicle registration;
dates of employment;
Social Security verifica-
tion; a Social Security
trace; and a physical,
including screening for
illegal substances and
nicotine.
County officials are


working on getting
Reid an email address.
Meanwhile, County
Attorney Stephen
DeMarsh wrote that his
office has received four
contracts from Reid.
Commission Chair Nora
Patterson is now able to
sign them. It's unclear
why there are four
contracts.
County commission-
ers are excited about
Reid's pending start in
Sarasota County, likely
to be in late January,
but they also are think-
ing about the interim
county administrator,
who stepped in when
Jim Ley parted ways
with county commis-
sioners in May.
"I am very thankful to


Terry Lewis for his lead-
ership, support, and
humor," Commissioner
Christine Robinson
said. "I look forward to
(Reid's) fresh vision that
will take our business
and economic climate
to a new level and bold
ideas that will preserve
our level of service
without raising taxes.
"Looking forward to
(Reid's) leadership in
the months and years
ahead, and very thank-
ful for all that Terry
Lewis has done for us
and for the employees
in the interim," Com-
missioner Joe Barbetta
said.
"I am delighted that
we have found a tal-
ented executive with a


good track record and
a lot of sophisticated
experience," Patterson
said. "Sarasota deserves
no less. I look forward
to working with Mr.
Reid. It's a very diffi-
cult time both for our
citizens and for local
government and we
need all the staff and
administrative talent we
can get."
Commissioner Jon
Thaxton said, "My first
suggestion for Mr. Reid
will be to meet with the
county's four city man-
agers to establish strong
working relationships
right from the start.
It's time to rebuild and
move on."

Boards approve Jacaranda extension


By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Venice City Coun-
cil and some Sarasota
County Commission
members may disagree
about the future widen-
ing of U.S. 41 Bypass, but
they came together this
week regarding another
north-south road.
The council and
commission both
unanimously approved
a $5.9 million agree-
ment for the alignment
and maintenance of the
proposed Venice North/
South Connector Road,
to be located east of
Interstate 75, extend-
ing Jacaranda Boulevard


north, from Border Road
to Laurel Road, within
city limits.
The construction proj-
ect will go out to bid in
February. It is expected
to be completed by
September 2013.
"I've been working on
this issue for a long time,"
first-year County Com-
missioner Christine Rob-
inson said Wednesday.
Chair Nora Patterson
remarked that a north-
south connector in South
County was a subject of
discussion during her
1998 county commission
campaign.
"And nobody ever
thought it would hap-
pen, actually," Robinson


added. "This is great. It's
going to be a connector
road, to help with the
grid system. It's going to
be an emergency exit.
It's going to help with
Jacaranda Boulevard,
which seems to have all
sorts of interesting things
going on it right now, for
economic development,
so this is going to serve
several functions and it's
a real good investment."
Members of the Jaca-
randa West Homeown-
ers Association testified
before council in Novem-
ber, concerned that the
road will increase traffic
in their area. Last week
county commissioners
approved a recreational


Graduation rates drop locally


By JEN WULF
STAFF WRITER

More students are graduating from
Florida schools on time, according to
figures released Monday by the Florida
Department of Education.
This year's statewide average of
80.1 percent tops last year's graduation
rate by a percentage point, and dropout
rates are slowly creeping down as well.
In Sarasota, graduation rates slipped
a bit, but at 83.5 percent, the district is
still ahead of the state.
"While we certainly would like to see
our district's graduation rate improve
every year, we are pleased that it
remains well above the state average
and that the dropout rate has improved
from last year," Superintendent Lori
White said in a statement.
Steve Cantees, executive director for
high schools in Sarasota County, said the
district's strong track record in gradua-
tion rates was due in part to online op-
tions to make up credits. For example, at
North Port High School, with a graduat-
ing class of 500, Cantees estimated be-
tween 20 and 25 percent of students had
benefited from the program somehow.
Charlotte's graduation rate, however,
slipped by almost a percentage point
and trails the state average at 78.6 per-
cent. Charlotte County Superintendent
Doug Whittaker said the loss was small,
and the district focuses on trends rather
than year-to-year rates.
"I really can't explain why it went
down," Whittaker said. "It's not a really
statistically significant drop."
The rate overall is down a couple of
percentage points since 2006-07.
Though the graduation rate fell a

first thing they did was
close the roads ... narrow
the roads. I can't just
throw all that out."
County Commissioner
Christine Robinson, who
drives the bypass often,
said she "likes being close
to the bowling alley and
goes there a lot."
While not an MPO
board member, she fa-
vors widening the bypass
to six lanes and told her
fellow commissioners she
may speak during public
comment at the next
MPO meeting, to voice
her opinion.
Their remarks came
during a commission
discussion regarding the
delay of an MPO vote
on the bypass widening,
prompted by MPO mem-
ber and County Commis-
sioner Nora Patterson's
desire for more informa-
tion about the traffic flow
efficiency of a plan to
keep the bypass at four
lanes and widen the East
Venice Avenue and Cen-
ter Road intersections,
in lieu of widening the
bypass to six lanes. That
report is expected to be
ready in time for the
Jan. 23 MPO meeting.
Robinson wondered
whether this consultant's
report really will be the
last step before an up/
down vote on widening
the bypass.
"It will have to be,"
responded Patterson, "be-
cause the money is going
to disappear, otherwise."

who graduates late is not included in
the dropout rate, but also does not
count toward the graduation rate.
This year's dropout rate of 2.4 percent
shaved about a percentage point off
last year's dropouts, still higher than the
state average. Whittaker attributes this
to decreased enrollment.
"I think that's one of the reasons that
our dropout rate is so high, is because
we are one of the districts that are con-
tinuing to lose kids," he said.
If students do not tell the district
where they enroll after leaving Charlotte
County, they are counted as dropouts.
DeSoto County made the strongest
improvement in both graduation rate
and dropout rates in the area. The coun-
ty rose from a 61 percent graduation rate
in 2009-10 to almost 73 percent this year.
The district also halved its dropout rate,
which now stands at 2.2 percent.

NEws EDITOR

The Venice Christmas
Boat Parade Committee
said thanks to this year's
parade participants
with a dinner Thursday
evening at the Venice
Community Center.
The organization gave
awards to the owners of
the best decorated boats,
then gave a little more by
announcing a number of
scholarships.
John Osmulski, who
emceed the event, will
again serve as the com-
mittee president next year.
He announced the
Venice High Rotary Fu-
tures program will receive
two $1,000 scholarships.
Student recipients will be
announced in May.
The committee also gave


.e committee gives back


$1,000 to theVeniceYouth
Boating Association.
Boy Scout Troop 1001
in Nokomis received
$250, as did the Wildlife
Center of Venice.
All Faiths Food Bank
will receive a $500 dona-
tion. On top of that, a
number of boat parade
finishers donated their
winnings, boosting the
evening's food bank con-
tribution to $900.
Local sponsors, such
as Sharky's on the Pier
and Marine Max, which
held a fundraiser this
year for the committee,
enable it to fund youth-
related boating activities
as well as scholarships
to support interest in the
marine sciences.
Thirty-six boats par-
ticipated in this year's
Christmas boat parade


on Dec. 13 (four with-
drew for mechanical
reasons), topping Sara-
sota's 29-boat parade.
In fact, Osmulski noted,
one third of Sarasota's
participants come from
the Venice parade.
He challenged each
boat owner to solicit one
more entry for next year's
parade.
Kelly Ireland, who won
first place in the 40-foot-
and-over category, do-
nated $1,000 to kickstart
next year's scholarship
fundraising effort. He
also offered to pay the
$15 registration fee next
year for any new boat
parade entrants.
"It would be nice if
the people who enjoyed
the parade onshore
could donate a dollar,"
Osmulski said. "I need


people to get involved
and help implement it."

By ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER
Alachua County
Manager Randall Reid,
57, set to take the reins
as the next -
Sarasota
County ad-
ministrator
in January,
believes one
key to being
an ethical
public em- REID
ployee is to
be a good listener.
"As ethical public
managers and employ-
ees, we need to listen to
our critics closely and
respectfully as citizens
and concentrate on
fiscal accountability,
effective governance
and outstanding per-
formance at each of our
public tasks and respon-
sibilities," Reid wrote in
the September/October
2011 issue of Quality
Cities, a publication
of the Florida League
of Cities. The article
also appeared in other
publications.
"We must, however,
never dismiss the fact
that what we do as
public employees is
essential to the func-
tioning of our commu-
nities and the welfare
of our citizenry. If we
work hard, treat our
elected officials, peers
and our citizens with
respect and civility, we
can answer any ques-
tion and respond to any
challenge our commu-
nities face. We can bring
honor back to public
service and attract a
new generation to pub-
lic service."
Honor is one thing
county commissioners
hope to bring back to
Sarasota County in the
wake of multiple pro-
curement probes that
resulted in 10 county
employees losing their
jobs. Interim County
Administrator Terry
Lewis is overseeing the
installation of more
than 260 changes to
the county's purchas-
ing system. The number
of employees who have
county-issued credit
cards, and their spend-
ing limits, have been
reduced. Department
heads now are more
accountable for the
actions of their subordi-
nates than before.
"With freedom comes
responsibility and ac-
countability," Reid said
in a recent interview. "If
they are given a level of
responsibility and they
have the autonomy or
freedom to exercise a
decision, they have to
be accountable for that
decision.
"If somebody has a
credit card, they need to
be responsible for what
they've done with it,


and held accountable,"
he continued. "That is
assuming that there is
training and there are
clear policies."
Reid added that su-
pervisors must ensure
that credit-card use is
monitored.
"(Department heads)
are responsible, if they
sign off on paperwork,
that their signature
means something,"
he said.


Using a yardstick as
a metaphor, Reid said a
manager can give away
any number of inches
to an employee, "but
the manager must be
accountable for the last
inch of that yardstick.
You can't give that up."
Whether they commit
criminal acts or acci-
dentally misappropriate
funds, employees must
be held accountable,
Reid said. The key is to


clean up systems like
procurement and make
sure they have checks
and balances.
Aside from listening
to people and begin-
ning to understand
the troubled Sarasota
County procurement
system, Reid said he will
begin looking at county
land-use and economic
development issues.

OUR VIEW


More delay won't make widening unnecessary


The need to widen U.S. 41 Bypass
in Venice is something that
seems absolutely obvious to
Venice City Council, the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce and, we
suspect, anyone who drives that road
on a daily basis. As obvious as a Mack
truck on a go-cart track.
Somehow, though, the situation
looks different to members of the
public board that will decide soon
whether to keep the complete road-
widening project on the list of fund-
ing priorities.
Monday, the Sarasota-Manatee
Metropolitan Planning Organization
voted 10-5 to delay a decision on the
U.S. 41 road projects until January.
It's yet another delay on something
that was first recommended 15 years
ago.
Ostensibly, the extra month will
give MPO members more time to
chew over details in a road consul-
tant's report on road improvement
options. But make no mistake: A
significant segment of this project is


in trouble.
Right now it seems unlikely one
section of the bypass will get the
votes needed for widening to have a
chance of occurring sometime in the
relatively near future, which means
10-20 years from now. It also seems
the three Sarasota County commis-
sioners on the MPO board will vote
against it. Not only that, those three
seem to be leading opposition, which
is surprising considering reassur-
ances given during a recent joint city
council/county commission meeting.
We believe the need for the wid-
ening is clear. This road is a major
north-south traffic artery in South
County, second only to Interstate 75.
Businesses have sprouted up along
the road in recent decades, but the
primary purpose of the "bypass" is to
move traffic quickly and efficiently
through the area. Through-traffic
does not travel on U.S. 41 onto and
off of the island of Venice; it pro-
ceeds along the "bypass." That's why
more capacity to handle that traffic


is needed now and will be needed
even more as years go by. That's also
why the recent Renaissance Planning
Group study supports a complete six-
lane option with better traffic signals
at the two major intersections as the
best way move that traffic.
Two segments of the project are
already in the near-term pipeline: six-
laning the northern section from Bird
Bay Drive to Albee Farm Road, and
the middle section from Albee Farm
Road to Gulf Coast Boulevard, which
is essentially the East Venice Avenue
intersection. But the final section,
1.1 miles from Gulf Coast Boulevard
to Center Road, is on life support.
Oddly, that portion is not located
within Venice city limits; it is in un-
incorporated Sarasota County. That
fluke of mapping puts the project in
the jurisdiction of the county com-
mission, whose MPO representatives
- Commissioners Nora Patterson,
Jon Thaxton and Joseph Barbetta -
are leaning toward a "no" vote.
Opponents argue the Renaissance


report shows four lanes would be saf-
er. Sure. Smaller and slower is almost
always safer. U.S. 41 Bypass would
be very, very safe if the speed limit
were dropped to 20 mph. No one is
campaigning for that to happen.
And then, U.S. 41 is six lanes in the
unincorporated area of South Ven-
ice, at the south end of the "bypass."
U.S. 41 was recently widened to six
lanes to the north through unin-
corporated Nokomis. It just seems
inconceivable that this busy 1.1-mile
section will remain the only four-lane
section decades from now.
We can only hope the MPO board
doesn't get bogged down in the un-
derbrush and lose sight of the forest
here. This is not Pinebrook Road or
Honore Avenue that is, a low-im-
pact, alternative north-south thor-
oughfare. This is one of two major
north-south traffic arteries.
The traffic has to move, and six
lanes are needed to move it. After all
these years of study, that still seems
obvious.


Highway 41



revisited


I have never had to wait more
than one light as I travel
north or south along the by-
pass in Venice. This is not the
case going east or west across
the bypass on East Venice Av-
enue, where cars often back up
for a good city block.
Widening the bypass to six
lanes at this point is a really
bad idea. It would increase
congestion and delays since
it would now take longer to
cross 41. People who would
try to beat the light by turning
on yellow are more likely to
cause traffic tie-ups, and even
accidents. It will also mean
inconvenience and possible
danger for trike and bike riders
or pedestrians. There is a good
deal of such traffic at this inter-
section. Of special concern
are school children attending
Venice High School.
Now, one way to allevi-
ate some of these problems
is to increase the time east/
west traffic lights stay green.
Of course, this would only
increase north/south traffic
delays, just the opposite of
what this expensive project
was designed to accomplish.
The East Venice Avenue/41
intersection has some unique
concerns. There is the draw-
bridge a few blocks west of this
crossing. When it is up east/
west traffic is paralyzed for a
good five minutes. And it is up


fairly often, whenever some
boat with an extended antenna
decides to pass by.
There is also the situation of
how westbound traffic chan-
nels into one lane just west of
the intersection. The left lane
is the only way to get on the
bridge. Autos in the right lane
cross into the left, and this
assures further delay and con-
gestion. We should not move
ahead with this construction
without a professional traffic
analysis of all related variables.
We all would like to see more
people shop in downtown
Venice. So why build a six-lane
barrier across the main gate-
way to this area? Half of Ven-
ice's residents live east of the
bypass. This project will split
our city in half and lower the
incentive for off-islanders and
others to visit downtown. And
it will further isolate residents
who live on the island.
The third segment of the
six-lane expansion also has a
considerable downside. The
merchants between Gulf Coast
Boulevard and Center Road are
very concerned. One example
is my friend Bernie, owner of
Geier's (the best German deli
in Sarasota, in my opinion.) He
gave several examples of how
widening a road had a negative
impact on stores adjacent to
the expansion.
The widening project is said
to be very expensive. We need
to know exactly how expensive,
all three sections. How much
do they propose to pay for
adjacent properties?
And finally, to believe that
this pricey expansion will not
cost Venice anything one way
or another is, to my mind, to
believe in the free lunch.
Ted Koszarski was a candi-
date for Venice City Council in
2009.

Harassed. I hope one of the
other readers can help me out
with an annoying problem. I
remember a couple of years
ago we had a free number to
call to stop these annoying
phone calls from politicians,
business people, whatever.
Now, there's something in the
paper that says there's a charge
for something like that. We're
getting calls all over again,
morning to night, and I won-
dered if anyone remembers
or could mention what that
free number is to stop these
annoying calls. I really would
appreciate it.
Editor's Note: There are
state and federal do-not-call
registries. The federal one -
888-382-1222 is free; Florida
charges an initial fee of $10 for
each residential phone num-
ber and a $5 renewal fee per
number, per year. Call 800-
435-7352. Note, though, that
the registries only protect you
from telemarketing calls -
people trying to sell you goods
or services. Calls from charities
and politicians, among others,
are exempt.
Wrecked. To the person
who left their dog's waste in
the street on Palm Meadow
Court, next to John Nolen
Park on Sunday, my son hit
that on his bicycle and had a
dramatic wreck that bloodied
his leg, stomach and arm. You
must pick up your dog waste,
even if it's in the street. It is
not only the law and a public
health issue, it is also a bicycle
safety concern.
Hearing voices. In response
to a recent letter, my dogs
are off leash for less than five
minutes and only when no
one is there. I always pick up
after them. Also, the older
dog does competitive agility,
flyball and herding. Therefore,
they are always under voice
command.
Missing Sarah. The Repub-
lican primary is really turning


Let 'em





















into fun time. It's unbelievable
now that Gingrich is leading
the pack. One only has to read
his record to see how much
fun that is. Maybe we should
bring back the woman who re-
ally gives fun to the Republican
nomination, the woman who
quit being governor of a frigid
state halfway into her term.
She has five children, one who
became a single mother in
high school. Two of the four
she named after some kind of
a weeping tree and one after
some kind of mathemathematics. She
really gave fun to the whole
thing. I hope the Republicans
can get her to get back in the
act before too long.
Get frosty. Again, I call in
about my wish for an ice skat-
ing rink at the Circus Arena.
Other cities have them. Why
can't we?
Fruitful. You can help feed
the hungry by donating un-
wanted fruit from your trees to
the South County Food Bank at
Emmanuel Lutheran Church.
It's open from 9 a.m. to noon
every weekday.
Parade watch. You had
one picture of the Christmas


parade in the newspaper. We
have not seen any additional
pictures from the Venice pa-
rade and we have not found
out who won the best float.
They had judges there. Well,
what's the result? Come on,
let's hear it.
Grumps. I just read this
morning's paper, and these
old fuddy-duddies who are
complaining about the chairs
ready for the parade have no
pride in Venice whatsoever.
We are known as a parade city,
and that is tradition, tradition,
tradition. If they don't like it,
let them move out of town. No-
body would miss the grumps
anyway.
Uncontrolled. When is our
acting city manager going to
wake up about an out-of-con-
trol police dispatch depart-
ment? I've talked with several
former police employees and
the common word is that the
seven to nine employees have
been out of control with over-
time for years. An employee
making $50,000 in overtime
is a crime in our city govern-
ment, especially in this econ-
omy. I am asking our leaders
and council to clean this mess
up and save us $300,000 per
year. I will not pay taxes when
money is wasted like this to
support an operation that is
so mismanaged. I'm aVenice
voter.
Timely. Since the Venice
fire chief has announced his
retirement, this would be the
perfect time to investigate the
possibility of consolidating the
Venice Fire Department with
Sarasota County. Leave the
police dispatchers alone.
No answer. A doctor charged
for services not received. I
called Medicare to report it,
like it asked us to. After trying
to get it three times with long,
long waits, I gave up. The doc-
tor's office personnel said it
returned the money to Medi-
care. Yeah, I bet.








Holidays are high-risk times for teens


By STEPHEN WALLACE
GUEST COLUMNIST

With the start of the
holidays, young people
face added danger in this
special season otherwise
known for celebration
and good cheer. The hoo-
ligan? Often it's alcohol.
School break offers
up unstructured, and
perhaps unsupervised,
time and thus some sig-
nificant risk especially
when you add in the pro-
pensity of some adults
to promote alcohol-in-
cluded events as a way to
mark Christmas, Hanuk-
kah or the New Year.
Let the reindeer games
begin.
According to research
from Students Against
Destructive Decisions
(SADD)and Liberty Mu-
tual Insurance:
Almost one third
(31 percent) of teens say
that they have drunk al-
cohol with their parents.
Overall, one quarter
of teens say that they are


allowed to drink alcohol
when they are not with
their parents, about one
in eight host parties
where alcohol is served,
and slightly more than
40 percent are permitted
to attend parties where
alcohol is available.
More teens in 2011 are
saying that their parents
allow them to go to parties
where alcohol is being
served (41 percent) than
just two years ago (36
percent). In addition, more
teens are reporting that
they are allowed to drink
alcohol without their par-
ents (25 percent) in 2011
than in 2009 (21 percent).
That's not good news.
Nor is the fact that one
in three teens who use
alcohol say drinking is
allowed by parents on
special occasions like
holidays.
Many adults support
underage drinking be-
cause they believe they
have little say in the mat-
ter (53 percent). In fact,
parents who adopt zero-


tolerance policies are
the No. 1 reason children
don't drink.
For example, high
school students who
tend to avoid alcohol are
more than twice as likely
as those who repeatedly
use alcohol to say their
parents never let them
drink at home (84 percent
vs. 40 percent).
Other parents condone
alcohol use because they
feel if they allow teen
drinking at home, it will
keep their kids from
drinking somewhere else.
Not really.
More than half
(57 percent) of high
school students who
report their parents allow
them to drink at home -
even just once in a while
- report that they drink
elsewhere with their
friends, as compared to
just 14 percent of teens
whose parents don't let
them drink at home.
It's also true that some
adults just don't see the
harm in allowing teens


to drink. But, if that's
the case, they're just not
looking hard enough.
Young people use alco-
hol more frequently and
in higher volumes than
all other illegal drugs
combined.
The earlier a young
person starts drinking
(research suggests the
average age of onset of
underage drinking is 12
or 13 meaning many
are drinking at even
younger ages), the more
likely it is they will suffer
from substance-abuse
problems throughout
their lifetime.
And, neurological re-
search suggests that alco-
hol use may permanently
affect quickly evolving
adolescent brains. And
not for the better.
From the early '80s to
the mid-'90s, alcohol-
related crash deaths
among youth plum-
meted by 60 percent. But
progress can be slowed,
trends turned, and
higher risk realized if we


don't stay focused on the
goal of keeping kids safe.
How does that relate to
the holidays?
Consider that teen
drivers view New Year's
Eve as the most dan-
gerous seasonal event
when it comes to driv-
ing. Wonder why? After
summer, New Year's Eve
ranks at the top of the
list of when teens report
driving impaired.
And much of that risk
remains hidden from
those who could be em-
powered to matter most:
parents.
Indeed, about one in
eight teenage drivers
reports that he or she
doesn't tell the truth to
his or her parents about
driving under the influ-
ence of alcohol (13 per-
cent) and one in seven is
dishonest about driving
under the influence of
other drugs (15 percent).
Even so, good news can
be found in the demon-
strated power of parents
and peers to influence the


driving-related decision-
making of young people.
Together, they form a
significant backstop
against poor choices, sav-
ing young lives hanging
in the balance.
What better holiday
present is there than that?
It's time to tame the
trend on teen drinking
and bend the curve back
toward a safer place.
December is National
Drunk and Drugged
Driving (3D) Prevention
Month and the truth
is that if young people
aren't drinking, they
won't be driving drunk.
So much for reindeer
games.

Keep yoga on the beach
Editor:
As a new resident of
Venice, I want to publicly
comment on the wonder-
ful opportunity for yoga
on the beach with Elin.
Before purchasing a
property in Venice I spent
several seasons here in
this pleasant community
checking out the ame-
nities. One of my most
enjoyable activities was to
start my day with refresh-
ing yoga on the beach.
Now, as a resident, I can
enjoy yoga every day.
With today's focus on
health and well-being,
yoga complements a
healthful lifestyle by of-
fering great benefits in
flexibility, endurance and
stamina. The 30-minute
sessions are led by an en-
thusiastic instructor (Elin)
who always cautions par-
ticipants to avoid injury
and be aware of physical
limitations. Each session
attracts both young and
old, and it's free to all.
It has come to my atten-

VENICE HAMMERS MANATEE:
Venice limited Manatee to
single-digit scoring in three of four
quarters as the Indians broke a two-
game losing streak with a 50-28
win in a Class 7A-District 11 game at
Venice High.
Venice (3-4 overall, 1-1 district)
jumped out to a 12-5 lead after the
first quarter and extended it to 10
points at halftime.
"I thought offensively we
played a lot of first-pass-and-shoot
basketball," said Venice coach James
Slaton."For us, unless we really got
it going, we have to work the ball
better."
In the first quarter the Indians
broke a 4-4 tie with an 8-0 scoring
run. Venice led 12-9 in the second
quarter before scoring nine straight
points.
In the third quarter Venice used a
scoring run of eight points over the
final two minutes to grab a 33-18
cushion.
"I thought we came out a little
flat," said Slaton. "The second half
we came out with some more
energy, started getting up and
down the court and in transition a
little bit."
Senior Zach Flerlage led Venice
with 18 points while David Voigt
had seven rebounds.
Doing the damage for Manatee
was Anthony Bennett, who had 16
points.
"It was a district game at home,"
said Slaton. "We had to win it and
we did what we needed to do to
get a win. We moved to 1-1 in the
district, which is big for us."

Defense secures Venice's win

By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice High head coach James
Slaton has been stressing better
defense.
The Indians got it against
Lemon Bay as they limited the
Manta Rays to seven second-
half points, including just two
in the fourth quarter, as Venice
notched a 47-28 victory Friday
night at Venice High.
"Defense is usually about
results and tonight you saw the
results," said Slaton.
A 3-pointer at the buzzer of
the second quarter by Lemon
Bay's Vincent Kisiday forced a
21-21 tie heading into the locker
room.
"We felt good at halftime," said
Lemon Bay coach Sean Huber.
"I wanted it close. We hit a three
and had some momentum."
Venice then went on a 12-0
scoring run including eight in
less than 45 seconds, thanks to
3-pointers by Zach Flerlage and
Chris Hann.
"We just didn't answer," said
Huber about Venice's run. "We
have to go back and look at the
film."
Lemon Bay missed four foul
shots in the scoring run and
the Manta Rays' only other
points came on a jumper by
Antonio Gore with 54.5 seconds
remaining.
By then, Venice had a 33-26
lead.
"I thought our first-line
defense was great," said Slaton.
"Our rotations were great and

our block-outs were great. They
were one-and-done or turned it
over nearly every single time."
Huber agreed.
"We had no offensive
rebounding at all," said Huber.
"It was basically one shot and
out, one shot and out. They are
patient enough on offense that
they keep pressure on you con-
sistently and you sort of wear
down."
Lemon Bay cut it to 33-28 with
7:40 remaining in the game on
two foul shots by Jackson.
It would be the Mantas' (4-5)
only points of the quarter.

DEFENSE I11


WRESTLING



North Port dominates Venice


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

With only three wins
out of 14 matches, Venice
High head coach Dan
Kelly didn't have much
good to say about his
dual match against North
Port.
The Indians lost seven
straight matches, includ-
ing five by pin, as the
Bobcats dominated the
Indians 56-12, Wednes-
day night at North Port
High.
"I knew we weren't
going to win but they
embarrassed themselves
tonight," said Kelly. "First
part of the match from
113 (pounds) up to 132,
they wrestled tough and
did a good job. From 138
(pounds) and up, besides
Jacob Stubbs and Gar-
rett Johnson, they didn't
even show up. It was
embarrassing."
Venice's only wins
were at 113, 132 and 145
pounds.
"Yeah, it should have
been closer," said Kelly.
"That is all there is to it.
You can't get pinned. Quit
getting pinned. Have a
little bit of heart. Tomor-
row at practice we will be
having some wrestle-offs
for some positions. There
are too many guys on
our team that think they
are entitled to a position
because they have been


around awhile. It's not
going to be anymore."
The marquee matchup
of the night occurred at
195 pounds when two
Captain Archer Memorial
Tournament champions
from last weekend -
Venice's Garrett Johnson
and North Port's Carlos
Martinez faced off.
Martinez is a returning
state runner-up at 189
pounds in the Class 3A
and is ranked No. 1 at 195
pounds by Floridakids.us,
while Johnson is ranked
No. 6 in Class 2A at the
same weight.
Martinez, who weighed
in at 182 pounds, moved
up to 195 pounds.
After a scoreless first
period, Martinez escaped
for a 1-0 second-period
lead. Johnson tied it with
an escape in the third
period.
Both wrestlers were try-
ing for takedowns in the
third period when Marti-
nez got behind Johnson
for a takedown with 12
seconds left.
"It's a pride thing
because me and him go
back and forth a lot,"
said Martinez. "Mainly
teamwise, because I
don't want to let my team
down."
"That was a great
match," said North Port
coach Mark Kemble.
"That kid is a great wres-
tler and they have gone


Venice's Larsen Ullrich used a half nelson to put North Port's

back and forth a lot of
times."
Johnson escaped with
nine seconds left, then
attempted a last-ditch
throw but was caught on
his back in the closing
seconds as Martinez
notched a 7-2 victory.
"That was a good
match for him. I was
hoping they would move
that kid up," said Kelly
about Johnson. "To be
honest, I think Garrett
outwrestled him. I think
it was Garrett's takedown
at the end of the mat but
it slipped away and that
kid got the takedown.
Win or lose wasn't a big
deal to me but I know it
was to him."
Senior Matt Parker
notched a pin while CJ
Trammell rallied from a
5-1 deficit to score four
points in the third period


to pull out a 7-5 victory.
At 145 pounds, Larsen
Ullrich used a seven-
point first period to pick
up a 13-7 victory over
Josh Pollard.
"Venice has a good
team," said Kemble.
"They are always well
coached and came out
to wrestle. He has a lot of
young guys. I always have
a lot of respect for them
but I think we wrestled
really well tonight."
At 113 pounds, Venice
senior Matt Parker held
a slim 5-4 edge after
the first period against
Jeremy Poe, who moved
up from 106 pounds.
However, Parker (10-
3) scored a pin just 13
seconds into the second
period.
In the 132-pound
weight class, sophomore
Trammell (11-6) used his


never-quit attitude to pull
out a come-from-behind
win over North Port's Alex
Olmo.
Trammell gave up two
takedowns in the first
period and trailed 4-1.
He cut it to 5-3 with a
takedown in the second
period.
In the third period,
Trammell escaped and
got a takedown with 1:35
left to grab a 6-5 lead. A
penalty point finished off
the scoring as Trammell
picked up a 7-5 victory.
"It happens every
time," said Kelly. "He
never quits. It doesn't
matter if the kid is beat-
ing him by 10 points and
continues to beat him
by 10 points, he doesn't
quit. He never gives up
and works hard. It pays
dividends in the end."
Kelly would like other
wrestlers on his team to
watch and learn.
"I don't know how
you coach that in other
kids," said Kelly. "We
have a lot of kids on our
team that don't have
that. I wish it would. I
don't see how it doesn't
(rub off). They have a
great example right in
front of them. It doesn't
(rub off) so far."
At 145 pounds, Venice's
Larsen Ullrich squared
off against Josh Pollard
for the second time in

GIRLS WEIGHTLIFTING



Venice's Hand grabs first place


By PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Eight of 14 lifters placed in
the top four, including one first
and two runner-up spots, as
Venice took third in a tri-match
against Charlotte and Lemon
Bay on Thursday afternoon at
Venice High's Wellness Center.
"I've really enjoyed the team
this year," said Venice coach
Nancy Tessier. "The girls are
really great. They work hard
and come every day. They just
get better and better. It's nice to
have a nice, small team that I
concentrate on their individual
lifting and give them more per-
sonal training rather than have
such a big group."
Although Venice is accus-
tomed to winning, the Lady
Indians are forced to forfeit
eight places each meet because
they don't have lifters in three
of the 10 weight classes.


Charlotte took first place in
nine weight classes en route to
a sweep over Lemon Bay and
Venice. Charlotte's point total
was 69 while Lemon Bay was
second with 25 and Venice was
third with 20 points.
"I'm used to having teams of
37 or 40," said Tessier. "There
are a lot of new girls with lots
of freshmen and sophomores.
They just get better each week."
Taking first for Venice was
junior Emma Hand in the
129-pound weight class. Hand
lifted 20 more pounds than
her nearest competitor in the
bench press with a high of 125
pounds. She lifted 125 pound
in the clean and jerk for a total
of 250, which was 30 pounds
more than second-place Kait-
lyn Legg of Charlotte.
"She's awesome," said Tessier
about Hand.
Venice junior Shana Sand-
born lifted a personal-best


115 pounds in the clean and
jerk and, coupled with her
100-pound lift in the bench
press, took second place in the
110-pound weight class. Char-
lotte's Monique Derau took first
with a 250-pound total.
"Shana is doing great," said
Tessier.
In the 139-pound weight
class Ariel Gostischa grabbed
second place with a 235-pound
total. Charlotte's Janhea Beisner
edged her with a lift of 130
pounds in the clean and jerk. In
the bench press, Gostischa had
the top lift of 130 pounds out
of nine lifters. In the clean and
jerk, she lifted 105 pounds.
Picking up third places for
Venice were Alex Ellis (129
pounds), Amanda Kempf (139)
and Kristen Drennan (154).
Venice will compete in the
Charlotte Winter Tournament
on Dec. 21 at Charlotte High in
Punta Gorda.

New T-hangar
under construction
A new T-hangar is un-
der construction at Ven-
ice Municipal Airport.
The eight-unit building,
which will be hardened
for protection from
hurricane-force winds, is
expected to be complete
by spring 2012. There is
already a waiting list for
occupancy of the small
aircraft storage facility
A grant from the
Florida Department of
Transportation will pay
80 percent of the
$1.2 million cost, with
the airport enterprise
fund providing the re-
mainder. Hangar rental
revenue goes to the
airport enterprise fund
to be used for operations
and capital improve-
ments. No ad valorem
(property) tax revenues
are used by the airport.
Work will begin on
numerous airfield safety
improvements in the
near future. The airport


is replacing 30-year-old
lighted airfield signs that
pilots use for ground ma-
neuvering with energy-
efficient LED signs. It is
updating taxiway pave-
ment markings, installing
a wildlife deterrent fence
and removing trees that
are too close to airport
runways. The $300,000
project is also being
funded in part by a grant
from the FDOT.

Graham: 'Pakistan is most dangerous country in world'


By DON MOORE
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Former Florida gov-
ernor and U.S. senator
Bob Graham told a Ven-
ice gather-
ing Tuesday
evening
that "Paki-
stan is
the most
dangerous
country in
the world
because it
has 100 or more nuclear
weapons and an unsta-
ble government. Since
2000, it's gone from 20
or so of these weapons
of mass destruction to
more than 100."
In comparison, North
Korea had a couple
of atomic weapons a
decade ago and today
probably has 10 to 15.
As for Iran, it had zero
in 2000 and today that
figure is unchanged,
Graham told a group
attending his book-
signing at Venetian Golf
& River Club.
He was in town to tout
his new novel, "Keys to
the Kingdom," a tale
about the Sept. 11 at-
tack on the World Trade
Center and Saudi Ara-
bia's connection to the
disaster. The event was a
fundraiser for the Venice
Arts & Literary Society.
Graham should have
a good feel for what's
going on in the Middle
East. He served for a
decade as a member of
the Senate Select Com-
mittee on Intelligence;
part of that time he was
its chair. Today he is a
member of the Central
Intelligence Agency's
External Advisory
Board.
During a question-
and-answer period fol-
lowing a discussion of
his book, he told those
in attendance, "I think

problems was the CIA

the Iraq War."
After nine years, the
U.S. war in Iraq was
declared officially over
on Thursday.
Graham said he
thought there was a
good possibility Iraq
could end up being
three countries split
along ethnic lines in the
not-too-distant future.
He doesn't see much
chance of the country

said. The country didn't
grow out of the English
system of government
like the United States. It
has no basis for such a
government.
"Iraq is somewhat a
mirror image of Yugosla-
via. It became a country
after World War I when
the victorious Allied
powers turned an area
comprised of three
diverse tribes into one
state. The same was true
of Yugoslavia," Graham
said.
"What was also true,

A SEASON OF GIVING


The village people share their Christmas spirit


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Nancy and Rich Car-
roll's holiday display is
like an iceberg about
90 percent is hidden.
The house and
grounds at 680 Perche-
ron, off Mission Valley
Boulevard, are filled with
lights, blow-up Santas
and more, but for many
visitors the best part is in
the garage.
To see that, visitors
must find a parking place
on the street and walk
up the drive and into the
garage.
Within a space that
would normally hold two
large cars, the Carrolls
have created a massive
Christmas village with
working trains; ski-lifts;
ice rinks with skaters;
and village people walk-
ing dogs, riding carnival
rides, sleighing, skiing
and even having their
photo taken with Santa
Claus.
Nancy began by col-
lecting some pieces
based on the movie "It's
a Wonderful Life." She
added some pieces from
Dept. 56. Rich added still
more.
"We've been collecting
it for 25 years," he said.
"There are some pieces
from the '50s. If I could
find a retired watch-
maker, I'd pay to get
them repaired."
He pointed to a village
street parade that would
be even more charm-
ing if the people could
move again. That one
item is about the only
thing not fully opera-
tional in the Carrolls'
display, which Nancy set
up. He said it probably
cost about $14.95 in
the 1950s and he would
gladly pay someone
$100 to get it working
again.
Located nearby is the
newest item in the col-
lection a train that was
added to the display this
year. It was acquired over
the past year, a new train
car each month, from the


The Carrolls' Christmas village includes dozens of animated
displays like this frozen lake with ice skaters.


Nancy Carroll makes an emergency repair to keep an electric train running in her family's
Christmas village. The display is so vast the only way to fix things that are out of arm's reach is to
climb up and tiptoe over to the problem area.


Danbury Mint.
Some skaters were
acquired at a garage sale.
"I start from scratch,"
she said. "I have to create
a town with mountains.
One side is country.
One side has carnival
rides and one side is
the mountain side with
Santa's village on the top.
It took 450 hours to set
it up."
That was about two
years ago. Even though
it was left up, it looks
different today. That
new train goes through
a mountain tunnel past
additional buildings and
people. If something
stops working, Nancy
climbs up on the table,
walks over to the item
in need of care and fixes
it. While not obvious to
the casual observer, she
has pathways through-
out the display for such
instances.
She recently rewired
the miniature teacups
ride herself. It works but
she said they are spin-
ning faster than before.
Just two switches need
to be flipped to turn on
this whole display.
She also has to make
sure to add water to a
working fountain and to


a miniature carnival ride
that features boats in a
moat.
In addition to the
mountain village scene,
the garage houses several
larger mechanical holi-
day items purchased by
Rich over the years.

In the beginning
The very first display
was on a small buffet
table in the family dining
room. As the collection
grew it was moved to the
pool table and eventually
filled the family dining
room, which measured
14 by 20 feet. These days
the village nearly fills the
garage, and there is still
more up in the garage's
attic, in an 11-by 20-foot
space filled with holiday
objects.
"He loves Christmas,"
Nancy said while point-
ing out various high-
lights within the village
she created from their
collection.
Although it seems they
already have everything
in the way of village
people, buildings, cars,
trees and other accesso-
ries, the Carrolls con-
tinue their shopping.
One of their oldest


pieces is a gondola-
style ski-lift that Rich
said is about 50 years
old. Still operational,
it has a prominent
place on one of Nancy's
mountainsides.
Also among the older
treasures are several
tiny snow-clad trees that
date back to the 1950s or
1960s.
Whenever they travel,
they always stop at any
Christmas stores they
find.
"I cruise eBay a lot," he
said. "There is not a lot
left we can buy."
Old habits die hard.
There also have been
some gifts. The man who
owns the 7-Eleven at the
corner of Laurel Road
and U.S. 41 gave them
some miniature 7-Eleven
stores he received to use
as display items.
The outside decora-
tions are Rich's domain
and include the letters
U.S.A. on the roof of
the house. He put those
lighted letters on the roof
Sept. 12, 2001, and they
have been lighted every
night since then, he said.
It takes a couple of
weeks to set up the
outside display, which
includes lights along all


the fences and 10 blow-
up items.
Despite all the lights
on the property and
inside the garage, they
said their electric bill
rarely goes above $200
for the month, unless
they have to turn on the
air conditioning or heat.
Rich is the foreman of
Nancy's Lawns, which
was founded 30 years ago
by Nancy. The company
has 150 clients in the
Oaks, which keeps every-
one busy throughout the
year.
They have been mar-
ried for 34 years and
have two grown sons,
one a former profes-
sional baseball player
and one who is a
mechanic. Neither has
expressed an interest in
taking over the display
although they do help
with the set-up.
When not working or
collecting holiday items,
Rich and Nancy are
doing good in the com-
munity. Rich heads up
the Challenger baseball
program in Venice, and
during the past 16 years
the Carrolls have col-
lected and distributed
2,500 bikes for needy
children to receive at
Christmas.
Today, Venice Police
Chief Tom McNulty
will arrive by helicop-
ter, dressed as Santa, at
Epiphany Community
Hall in downtown Venice,
where he will distribute
150 bikes to needy chil-
dren, Rich said.


For the future
Rich and Nancy are
looking for a new home
for their miniature
village.
"We want people to
enjoy it," he said. "We
would sell it or, if they
would agree to display it
for at least five years, we
would give it."
They estimate its worth
at about $150,000 and
would like to donate it to
an organization that will
continue to display it for
the community for years
to come.
"We have too much of
our lives in it to just give
it to anyone," Rich said.
To find the display,
take Laurel Road to Mis-
sion Valley Boulevard,
which is between U.S. 41
and Albee Farm Road.
Travel north on Mis-
sion Valley to Percheron,
which is on the left. The
Carrolls' house is at 680
Percheron, on the left
(south) side of the street.
Park on the street and
walk to the driveway
to enter their holiday
wonderland.
"Anyone is welcome to
come take a look," Rich
said, "as long as the sign
is out front."
The couple has a firepit
near the garage and is
there every night to greet
visitors and answer ques-
tions about the exhibit,
which is expected to
remain on display until
Jan. 1.

Gifting benefits giver and receiver


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR

Going on the premise that
it's better to give than receive,
Jean Dow of Venice should be a
relatively happy person.
In honor of her 90th birth-
day, Dec. 7, she gave 90 caps
she had knitted to All Chil-
dren's Hospital in St. Peters-
burg for pediatric patients
who had undergone surgery or
chemotherapy.
Collette Hall, a good friend
of Dow's, drove her to the
hospital so she could hand
deliver the caps. The high-
light of her day was person-
ally giving a cap to two young
patients in the Child Life
department.
"You have no idea how good
it felt," Dow said. "It was thrill-
ing to be able to give those two
girls hats."
The hats can be worn by
boys or girls.
"This is my favorite birthday
present to me," Dow said.
She said she has done it
before. On her 85th birthday
she gave 85 caps to All Chil-
dren's Hospital. Before that
she sent 50 to Miami Chil-
dren's Hospital. The differ-
ence is, she had mailed them

OF JEAN DOW


Haley, a patient at All Children's
Hospital in St. Petersburg, chose a
pink cap knitted by Jean Dow that
matched her Minnie Mouse shirt.
The girl's sister, who is not a patient,
also received one of Dow's knitted
hats.

before. This time she got to
experience giving them one-
on-one to a couple of young
patients.
Ten-year-old Michelle Ferris
was thrilled with the gift.
"It was very nice of her; she
was very sweet," Michelle said
Dec. 15.


Michelle Ferris, 10, snuggles into
Jean Dow's shoulder showing appre-
ciation for the knitted cap Dow gave
her. Michelle was a patient at All
Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg
and had lost all her hair. "It was like
I was her grandmother," Dow said.


She had undergone chemo-
therapy and had been dis-
charged to home.
"I really like the hat. I know
how to crochet scarves, and my
friends are going to show me
how to make hats," she said.
"It was super sweet of
her (Jean) to think of older
children, not just babies,"
said Kristin Maier, child life
specialist at All Children's.
"The kids were really touched.
One said, 'She is an older
lady, and she made such cute
stuff.' Getting their own cap is
a way for them to be seen as


an individual and it brightens
their day."
Most of the children are
hospitalized for an extended
period of time, according to
Maier.
"The majority of them get well
and go home, but 60 percent of
the beds are ICU beds," she said.
Adding to the good feeling
for Dow was when Michelle
leaned into the crook of her
neck and hugged her with
thanks for the gift.
"It was like I was her grand-
mother," Dow said. "She had
lost her hair. I got a choked-up
feeling making her smile when
she put on the cap. That is a
priceless gift."
Dow, a widow for more than
20 years, was motivated to knit
caps for older children rather
than babies when her husband
was hospitalized at Sloan-
Kettering Hospital in New
York. Sometimes she would sit
outside and take a break.
"I would see children go by
who had lost their hair from
having chemotherapy treat-
ments, and I thought of how
hard it must be for mothers to
see their little girls that way,"
she said.
"And I thought of how hard
it was for the little girls, who


want to be a princess, to have
to tell them they are going to
be bald. It has to be so hard.
"When I decided to make
the caps, I did it for the girls,
not preemies that everyone
makes caps and things for.
Imagine being 8 or 9 years old
and losing your hair."
She not only makes caps for
children, but she also makes
caps and afghans for family
members. Many of her lap
afghans have been sent to Bay
Pines VA Medical Center in
St. Petersburg and Jacobson
Veterans Nursing Home in Port
Charlotte.
Dow taught herself to knit
and crochet when she was
just out of high school. Her
impetus?
"I dated a guy whose
girlfriend had knitted him a
sweater. I thought I could knit
him a better one," she said.
Dow said she will continue
knitting caps and afghans. It
gives her a sense of purpose.
And she'll keep giving them
away.
"I told my family if there are
any left when I'm gone, they're
to send them to the children's
hospital."

Amahl sets a spirit of love at Golden Apple


By AUDREY BLACKWELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
What could be more
heartwarming at Christ-
mastime than a story
about a young boy giving
a gift for the Christ child
and being healed in
return?
Such is the story of
'Amahl and The Night
Visitors," a one-act opera
now running at The
Golden Apple Theatre.
The opera, written by Gian
Carlo Menotti, was the
first made-for-television
opera and aired in No-
vember 1951.


Those who do not know
the story of Amahl might
want to brush up on it
before seeing the play
to enhance their experi-
ence of the opera. Amahl
(Stevie Romero) and his
mother (Dianne Dawson)
sing their parts in soprano
tones, and on opening
night some of the a capel-
la delivery weakened on
high notes that occasion-
ally seemed rushed.
Overall, Stevie delivers
a superb performance as
a crippled boy who uses a
crutch to hop and skitter
across the stage. He moves
rather well under the


circumstances, even aris-
ing quickly from his bed
and maneuvering to the
door several times when
the three Magi come
knocking, seeking warmth
and rest on their way to
Bethlehem.
As Amahl, Stevie was
always in tune with his
character a boy who
takes his fantasies so far
they become tall tales and
lies, which worry his poor,
widowed mother.
Dawson also was
constantly in character
and allowed the audience
to know what was going
on through her actions,


expressions and tone of
voice.
The three kings (Mi-
chael Bajjaly, Ben Turoff
and Leander Douglas)
were dressed in regal attire
and acted somewhat pi-
ous, as one would expect
of royalty. However, there
were moments of humor,
such as when Amahl first
opened the door and
immediately slammed
it shut, not believing his
eyes, and the Magi rolled
their eyes, incredulous at
the reaction.
Amahl tried to rouse his

Key West: Santa's southernmost US outpost


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Instead of heading
north for Christmas,
head to the southern-
most point in the U.S.
Decked in holiday
finery, Key West is ready
for visitors, whether
they arrive by car or
high-speed ferry boat
from Fort Myers. I prefer
the drive and also like
to break it up with a
stop somewhere in the
upper keys, but if time is
essential as it seems to
be these days as people
take more but shorter
vacations, leave early so
you can be in Key West
for one of its famous
sunsets.
Even if you drive all
the way there in a day, be
sure to spot the remains
of the old Florida Keys
Over-Sea Railroad, Com-
ing up on Jan. 22 is the
100th anniversary of the
day the first train arrived
at Key West in 1912. A
one-man show featuring
a re-enactor as railroad
owner Henry Flagler,
historic train displays, a
family fun day at Pigeon
Key, a presentation by
rail historian Seth Bran-
son, a costume ball and
a parade are some of the
activities being planned.
It took more than
seven years and more

distance of Duval Street, where visitors daily practice the Duval Crawl.


than 4,000 men to built
the rail line, which ran
over more than 100
miles of open water on
a system of bridges and
viaducts and cost Flagler
a large percentage of his
considerable fortune.
It took just one hur-
ricane to destroy the
dream in 1935. Today's
highway offers close-up
views of some of the
remaining viaducts,
which now support train


tracks to nowhere. But
for some 20-plus years,
that was the way to get to
Key West.
Once you get to the
keys, there are many
places to stay, including
a Hyatt-managed condo,
several hotels and motels
and Key West's unique
B&Bs.
At my request, Stuart
Newman Associates sent
me photos of Cypress
House and Eden House,


two Key West B&Bs deco-
rated for the holidays.
Turns out I have stayed
in both, although never
at holiday time.
Cypress House is closer
to Duval Street and has
a lap pool. It has more
rooms because it has two
houses connected by
an arcade. Eden House
is a bit more casual and
farther from Duval, but
it has hammocks all over
the yard surrounding its


Eden House, 1015 Fleming St., Key West, is decked out in
holiday finery for the season.

pool. I can only imagine
settling into a hammock
after sunset to enjoy
the lights that cover the
outside of Eden House
and no doubt continue
into and throughout the
grounds.
Decorated from
rooftops to gardens in
holiday lights, the whole
town should be just as
amazing to visit as a
visit to the North Pole,
but much warmer and
without that long flight,
or worse yet, a series of
long flights in this age of
the "hub."


There is something
about the town's 19th
century architecture that
seems to be a perfect fit
with holiday decorations,
from Market Square to
the Hemingway House
and even as far south as
the Southernmost Point,
which has at least two
more B&Bs in the imme-
diate area.
Dec. 17, from 6 to
9 p.m. visitors can see a
whole list of decorated
inns throughout the

Key West celebrates 'Bight' Before Christmas


FROM STUART
NEWMAN ASSOCIATES

The historic heart of
the island city's seaport
commerce, the Key West
Bight Marina, is to shine
for the holidays during
the Key West "Bight"
Before Christmas Holi-
day Celebration that runs
through Jan. 1.
The festivities began
Thanksgiving Eve
with the ceremonial


illuminating of the Key
West Harbor Walk of
Lights, stretching along
the harbor area from
Greene to Grinnell streets.
Nautical holiday displays,
a super-size garland
wrapped around the Key
West Ferry Terminal, a
southernmost Christmas
tree and even lights under
the water add excitement
and seasonal sparkle to
the unique landscape of
the seaport.


In addition to lights
and decorations, visi-
tors strolling the harbor
walk throughout the
celebration can discover
shops and galleries with
intriguing gift possibili-
ties; eateries and water-
ing holes offering festive
food and drink; classic
tall ships awaiting pas-
sengers; and diverse and
inviting water sports
options.
The scheduled


highlight is a free two-
night concert of tradi-
tional Christmas music
under the stars on the
Harbor Walk of Lights, set
for 6-8 p.m. Dec. 17-18.
Classical violin and Celtic
fiddle compositions of
favorite holiday tunes
will be performed by Vio-
lins in Motion from Fort
Lauderdale, consisting
of talented 4- to 18-year-
old South Florida and
international students,


all self-funded. While the
event is free, donations
will be accepted for the
fight against childhood
diabetes.
Additional events
taking place during the
Key West "Bight" Before
Christmas gala include
the island city's holiday
parade, 21st annual
Schooner Wharf Bar/
Ultimat Vodka Lighted
Boat Parade, tours of
historic lighted inns


presented by the Key
West Innkeepers Associa-
tion, pirate-themed New
Year's Eve revelry and
much more.
Decorations will
remain on display
throughout the holidays.

FINE WHINES


Happily ever after


By BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


Once upon a time
there was a boy named
Timmy whose most
prized possession (with
the possible exception
of an obnoxious Pitts-
burgh Steelers jacket)
was a stuffed Eeyore
doll (he calls it a critter)
from the Classic Pooh
collection.
Timmy and his donkey
(which actually bears
more than a passing
resemblance to a rab-
bit) were inseparable in
spite of their age differ-
ence (Eeyore is 85 this
year, while Timmy is in
his 40s but aren't we
all kids at heart?). For 15
years they were together
through thick and thin ...
until one day Eeyore went
missing.
Timmy was beside
himself with worry and
guilt.
"I have a history of los-
ing things," he thought
to himself. "Could I
possibly have mislaid
Eeyore?"
He looked high and
low for his friend but the
disappearance remained
a mystery. Then the first
email arrived.
Much to Timmy's sur-
prise it wasn't a ransom
note. In fact, he wasn't
even sure it was about
Eeyore. The photo a
stuffed animal holding a
plate with the message
"Have U Missed Me?" -
didn't seem right. Even
though the email said,


OUTPOST
FROM PAGE 6

B&B owners are happy
to give visitors a look at


"This is an urgent mat-
ter and time is of the
essence for my survival,"
he decided to call the
potential donkeynappers'
bluff.
"Is this your first
kidnapping [sic]?" he
replied. "I need proof of
life and some sort of date
reference in the photo.
Also, be nice to the
rabbit."
Though a victim,
Eeyore's feelings were
hurt.
"I am not a rabbit!"
the next message read.
"I can't believe you don't
know what I look like or
what I am after all these
years together."
Only one response
from Timmy was
appropriate.
"OK. What do I have
to do to get my critter
back?" he wrote.
There would be
more emails, but they
revealed no clues as to
the identity of the don-
keynappers or Eeyore's
whereabouts. In fact,
he seemed to be hav-
ing a good time, based
on photos showing him
after a makeover and
a meal at the Clock,
hobnobbing with new
friends or participating
in a manger scene.
Despite Timmy's pleas,
the donkeynappers
wouldn't set any condi-
tions for his friend's
return.
"Who is this and what
do I have to do to get my
pet back?" he begged,
his entreaties falling on

their property because
those visitors often come
back to stay.
Anyone visiting Key
West, with or without a
car, should take one of
the many tours to get


deaf ears.
Finally, the culprits
- or Eeyore perhaps?
- took pity on poor
Timmy. Arrangements
were made to reunite the
pair, though only after
Timmy endured a gantlet
of challenges designed
to test his love for his
friend. A la "The Amaz-
ing Race," he was sent to
local businesses, making
the rounds to gather clues
to his ultimate destina-
tion, the restaurant where
Eeyore was enjoying a
beverage in eager antici-
pation of seeing him
again.
Also waiting were the
culprits: the original
donkeynappers, their
accomplices after the
fact and at least one
completely innocent
bystander. (I swear I
didn't even know there
was an Eeyore doll until
he had been donkey-
napped. Sure, I would
have participated, but
my help wasn't needed.
This time, anyway.)
There were no tears,
but the look of joy on
Timmy's face could be
seen from across the
room. He vowed to take
Eeyore home to safety
and not leave him at risk
of future hijinx.
And with his mind
again at ease, he turned
his attention to another
pressing matter.
"Where," he asked
himself, "did I leave my
planner?"

'Tis the


'Tis the season for a
lot of people to use the
expression "'tis the sea-
son." And though some
folks think this is a tired
cliche I have no problem
with it.
True, it's far from
original. But this famous
fragment from the carol
"Deck the Halls" can cast
a jolly light on just about
any phrase that follows.
So I don't see any harm in
using it to infuse a little
holiday cheer into your
writing.
Yet I do have a prob-
lem with "'tis the sea-
son" a very obscure
problem that occurs only
at the intersection of my
work and my computer
software. It has to do
with that apostrophe on
"'tis" and the fact that, all
too often, it's not really
an apostrophe. Instead,
it comes out as an open
single quotation mark.
And the really annoying
thing is that this error
happens even though the
writer got it right.
On a computer key-
board, the apostrophe

button we use all the time
to insert apostrophes with
no problem whatsoever
- especially in contrac-
tions. Type "it's," "who's,"
"let's," or "they're" in
Microsoft Word or similar
word-processing software
and the result is probably
exactly what you were
aiming for: a little dagger-
looking mark squeezed
between letters that indi-
cates something omitted.
Many word-processing
problems curve the mark
just a wee bit, giving the
text a more polished look.
Microsoft Word calls this
a "smart quotes" feature
and, unless you tell your
computer otherwise, it
automatically makes this
change for you. Most
people never give this a
moment's thought and
never have a problem
with it. Indeed, most
people could probably
go their whole lives and
never even notice.
Of course, most people
don't work as proofread-
ers, so they don't real-
ize just how vexing that
little curvature can be in
certain cases. You see,
when the apostrophe
comes in the middle of a
contraction, these word-
processing programs will
curve it slightly to the left.
But when it comes at the
beginning of a word or
a number, the program
will curve it like the letter
"c," with the opening to
the right, which actually
changes this mark from
an apostrophe to an open
single quotation mark.
Single quotation marks,
if you recall, are used
for quotations within

entertainment as much
as for the sunsets.
During the glitz and
glitter season, KeyWest
has no competition as
Santa's southernmost
outpost.


quotations: "Stop saying
'dude'!" They perform the
same function as regular
quotation marks, indicat-
ing verbatim speech or
calling attention to specific
words. Like garden-variety
double quotation marks,
they need not curve at all.
But when they do, they
curve around the words
they enclose. So an open-
ing single quotation mark
curves with the opening to
the left, like the letter "c,"
and a closing single quota-
tion mark curves in the
direction opposite "c."
An apostrophe, when
it curves, opens to the
left the opposite of the
letter "c." So, technically,
a software program that
curves your apostrophe
to the right is inserting
a punctuation mark you
never intended.
This is pretty nitpicky
stuff. But for us proof-
readers, finding and cor-
recting these is part of the
job. For example, it comes
up a lot in truncated
decades like "the '80s."
In fact, that's about the
only time this unintended
single quotation mark
crops up in decades.
It's almost never a prob-
lem with actual words,
except a certain jolly time
of year when a certain
variation on "it is" enjoys
an annual surge of popu-
larity. That's why right
now 'tis the season of
minor apostrophe errors.

Let there


be light,


again!

In this holiday season
when the lights of faith
brighten our homes and
our hearts, I recall lights
of a different sort and
of such intensity they
turned night into day:
the flames coming from
the open-hearth furnaces
of steel mills in Western
Pennsylvania and Ohio.
My mother was born
and lived in one such
steel mill town (McKees-
port, Pa.) until she mar-
ried my father and moved
to Brooklyn, N.Y. But the
friendliness and warmth
of its people stayed with
her, and my mother and
I would visit her par-
ents, my grandparents,
most school vacations
and almost always over
the Christmas holidays,
which sometimes coin-
cided with Hanukkah.
We would light the
menorah's candles, eight
in all, celebrating the mir-
acle of the oil that burned
for eight days in the Holy
Temple, and above all the
courage of the Maca-
bees who fought against
overwhelming odds to
keep the faith of the
Jewish people alive. Gift
giving would follow for
me, mainly in the form of
Hanukkah "gelt" (money,
usually coins), and my
grandmother would serve
latkes (potato pancakes)
in honor of the miracle.
But a short distance
from my grandparent's
home, other lights were
lit. On Fifth Avenue, the
town's main street, lamp-
posts and storefronts
were decorated to mark
the holiday. And in the
center of town near the
railroad station stood a
glowing Christmas tree
where people gathered to
hear Christmas carols and
share the joy of the holi-
day. Many of them were
steel mill workers and
their families men who
worked long, hard hours
to provide the basics of
food and shelter for loved
ones.

Like their fellow coal
miners, their compen-
sation was low and the
risks of their jobs high
until they organized in
unions bringing about
collective bargaining a
voice in their destiny. It
resulted in government
safety standards, worker's
compensation for those
injured on the job and,
most meaningful, a
higher standard of living.
During World War II,
Pittsburgh and its sur-
rounding steel producing
towns became known as
"the Arsenal of America,"
supplying the metal for
our military needs. How-
ever, beginning in the
1960s most of the mills
went dark, their flames
extinguished along with
those of other manufac-
turing industries.
What once was will
most likely never be, the
result of globalization
and the I.T. (information
technology) revolution.

Listen to these critics
of our social support

"Let's go back to the old

went all the way back to
biblical times, we would
find a God of mercy and

communal approach for
helping others: "Love thy

mother, but she thought
he was telling another
lie until after the third
attempt, when she went
to the door and, surprised
but pleased, let the Magi


to invite neighboring
shepherds over to bring
food for the Magi, be-
cause she had none. The
group of 17 did an excel-
lent job of singing their
lines, mostly naming the
various foods they had
brought.
Later, while the Page
(Joe Hunter) was sleeping,
the mother stole some


at her, arousing Amahl,
who fought to defend his
mother.
The kings took mercy
on the mother and let her
keep a gold piece, which
was planned as a gift for
the newborn king. Amahl
was so moved that he
too wanted to give a gift,
and reached out his only
possession to the kings,


began to walk normally
and the magic of the story
was revealed. Amahl left
with the Magi to deliver
his gift to baby Jesus.
Rounding out the
holiday-spirited perfor-
mance, a second act was
put on by the Golden
Apple cast in Sharon's
Holiday Party. Sharon
Lesley Ohrenstein hosted


was entertained with a
lively medley of Christmas
carols, interrupted only by
actor-shoppers crisscross-
ing the stage with bright-
colored shopping bags
and wrapped presents.
Digital images of color-
fully decorated pine trees
and wreaths, snow scenes
and a burning fireplace
added to the seasonal feel.

Minnesota brothers' two 1966 Mopar cars


wo brothers,
Brad and Trevor
Yoho, along with
their wives Carole and
Marla, are featured
today, something that
has been in the You
Auto Know pipeline for
many months. These
snowbirds have homes
in Punta Gorda only six
blocks from each other.
Naturally, they spend
considerable time to-
gether regarding family
matters, dining out, etc.
They have been com-
ing to the Sunshine State
since the 1990s on the
East Coast where Trevor
and Marla spent winters
until Hurricane Andrew
devastated the area.
Later they visited Punta
Gorda and knew this
was the place for them.
They bought a house
that they use six months
a year as refuge from
those bitter winters up
north. Brad and Carole
also settled in Florida
near Pompano Beach;
however that town was
way too busy for this
laid-back couple. After
seeing the slower pace
and easy quality of life
in Charlotte County they
sold out on and pur-
chased a home in the
City of Hibiscus, Punta
Gorda, in 2001.
Natives of Duluth and
Nashwauk, Minn., this
foursome return north
each summer to enjoy
the rolling countryside
and clean, cool weather.
Both couples own a
residence there and
each has a collection of
vintage vehicles which
are used regularly at
auto-related activities.
Brad's occupation was
a veterinarian for about
40 years, mainly on race
horses, several of which
he owned. Carole is a
retired faculty member
of the U. of Minnesota.
They have a son Darwyn
and daughter, Erin, plus
grandchildren, ages 1 to
9. Darwyn likes Cor-
vettes and is president
of the Stillwater area
Corvette Club. All four
also attend auto events
in Southwest Florida
with their Chrysler
autos. Since Brad, 76, is
the senior I'll start with
him and the 1966 Dodge
Dart convertible.
Brad is into old cars,
and Carole is too, riding
along with her hubby of
48 years, currently in the
tan 1966 Dodge Dart GT
convertible. Sometimes
she drives it, however
her hobbies are read-
ing, surfing the Internet
and being a political
"junkie."
Some interesting
information about the
Dart is they bought
it from the original
Englewood owner as
the result of reading a
Sun newspaper classi-
fied ad in 2002. For an
economical six-cylinder
225 slant engine car, it's


loaded with 11 options
including power top,
AC, PS, auto trans, etc.
A new top was installed
in 2003 and during
spring 2004 Brad had it
painted.
Watch for this couple
and their fun car at
almost any gathering of
antique vehicles. They'll
be glad to talk to you
about the hobby, horses
and most anything else.
Moving on to the fan-
cy, streamlined, almost
all-original 1966 Dodge
Charger and its owners,
Trevor and Marla Yoho.
I'm sure you find it
interesting as men-
tioned earlier in the
article both are natives
of Duluth, Minn., and
presently have a home
near there in Brainerd
where they spend sum-
mers. Trevor, 73, was the
entrepreneur of the fam-
ily, always buying and
selling "things" starting
during the 1950-60s era
as a semi dealer of all
types of vehicles. He
even officially sold new
autos for an AMC dealer.
Marla emailed me
some information she
thought would be help-
ful in doing this column.
Here is the result:
"Over the years Trevor
has owned camera
stores; a resort in Brain-
erd; ran a 550-home
housing development in
Homestead, which was
completely destroyed in
Hurricane Andrew; then
owned an amusement
park in Minnesota for 11
years. I traveled all over
the world as a giftware
and home decor buyer
until I married Trevor 24
years ago. We then be-
came partners in work
until the amusement
park was sold and we
'retired.'
"Now Trevor spends
his summer doing
remodeling and main-
tenance at an 800-acre
boys and girls camp
and I serve as clerk of
our township in Min-
nesota. This allows
us time to spend our
winters in Punta Gorda,
enjoying the weather,
the water and the old
automobile. Our two
children and three
grandchildren also ap-
preciate the car hobby!
Through all his work-
ing years Trevor never
really had the time to
give to his passion for
automobiles. When we
sold the amusement
park in 2003 I bought
him a bronze '57 T-Bird
to accompany the '58
Corvette he had owned

since 1981.
"With free time and
less responsibility, we
have devoted more
effort to our hobby,
including collecting
and restoring cars and
attending car shows all
around the country.
"This past summer we
were invited to display
two of our collector
cars in the theme area
at Lola, Wis., one of the
largest car shows in the
Midwest. The theme of
the show was 'Delightful
Dodges.' Trevor brought
his 1960 Plymouth and
matching boat. My car, a
1975 Dodge Dart 'Hang
Ten' was singled out for
interview on TV and
a four-page story that
recently ran in Old Cars
Weekly newspaper, plus
it is currently featured
as Car of the Week on
their website. After three
days of having my car
the center of attention
and talking to so many
attendees I really started
to feel like 'one of the
guys.'
"In 2005, we were
at the Saturday Night
Cruise at Old Town in
Kissimmee when Trevor
saw a beautiful 1966
Charger and decided
we had to have one for
ourselves. We found the
'66 Charger on eBay,
bought it sight unseen
from a retiring collec-
tor and had it shipped
here from California.
This one-owner car is
still all original other
than one repaint in
1998; the interior, motor
and drive train remain
as it left the factory.
The car came with the
original owner's manual,
where, as some car-
ing people used to do,
the owner wrote every
repair and service that
the car received during

his ownership. Trevor
uses it as his second car
while we're down here
in the winter. During the
last six years we've put
on about 14,000 miles
going to car-related
events all over the state
of Florida." A great little
story!
Trevor and Marla have
several other unusual
autos, including two
they totally restored.
The first was a 1965
Studebaker Wagonaire
station wagon with a
retractable back roof.
The second restoration
was a 1960 Plymouth
Fury, a car designed
when fins were at their
apex. After finishing
the two-year project it
was taken to a "Back
to the '50s" Car Show
in Minneapolis when
Trevor saw a derelict old
boat on a trailer. It had
large tail fins exactly like
those on the Plymouth.
So they chased the boat
owner down and pur-
chased it. One year later

he had a beautifully
restored matched set,
the '60 Plymouth and a
1959 Herter's flying fish
boat, complete with
taillights. The "newest"
restoration-in-progress
is a 1950 Willys Jeep-
ster. This job isn't quite
as extensive as the
last two and should be
completed sometime
this winter.
They try to do much
of the restoration them-
selves. Painting and
engine work are usually
done by professionals
with Trevor handling
all the body and met-
alwork refurbishing.
Marla said she provides
the detail work and


color advice, but isn't
above sewing the up-
holstery as done by her
for the Studebaker.
Note, this is the first
year of the Dodge Char-
ger and its body design
was used only during
1966-1967. This one is
quite nice as are the
owners. Feel free to ask
them specifications at
auto outings!
For you who follow
the hobby on TV surely
you've seen the gentle-
man next to Muscle Car
City owner Rick Tre-
worgy. He is Chip Foose,
a nationally known hot
rod and custom car
designer, who also does
graphics and designs
for Disney and who
was one of the celebri-
ties at the recent "Hot
Rods and Hogs" show


in Fort Myers before he
stopped by to see the
museum for himself.
Seems Muscle Car City
will appear in 10 of 13
episodes starting in Jan-
uary on HDTV stations
607 and 412 on Com-
cast. See the TV guide
or call the museum at
941-575-5959 for details.
Chip is the host of this
series "American Car/
Muscle Car." His regular
show "Over Haulin" is
one you won't want to
miss either.
While in the museum
Rick's daughter April,
the museum's general
manager, took the
photo just after Chip
drew a 1969 Camaro
and autographed it for
Rick. Later that day they
motored up to Arca-
dia to visit the antique


shops and both of these
grown "boys" bought
auto-related items.
Treworgy told me there
have been quite a few
out-of-state celebrities
who have visited with
him at the museum, and
he found Foose to be
one of the most friendly
and knowledgeable. He
also said Foose was car-
ing to the staff, visitors
and those seeking the
signature of a great guy
who has a passion for
what he does. That's a
real compliment coming

Boss should bite the bullet and get AC in this car


Dear Tom and Ray: I
do not have an air con-
ditioner. "So what?" you
say. "There are many cars
on the streets without
any air conditioning,
most of them old, rusted-
out beaters." But I have
a 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt,
base model XFE. My boss
bought it for me because
he couldn't pass up a
$6,000 brand-new car.
So now I am driving hell
on wheels ... literally. It
would be one thing if I
lived in Alaska or Siberia.
But I'm in the middle of
the country, where tem-
peratures were regularly
95 this past summer. The
dealer wants $2,500 to
install air conditioning.
Are there any cheaper
alternatives? Thank you
so much, guys. I am truly
grateful. Thomas the
"Roast Duck"
Tom: Unfortunately,
there are no really good
alternatives, Thomas.
Because almost nobody
buys a car without air
conditioning these days,
your car doesn't even
come with vent windows.
Ray: They had to un-
load this car for $6,000
because it sat on the lot
for almost two years and
no one gave it a sniff.
And the only reason your
boss bought it is because
he knew HE wouldn't
have to drive it.
Tom: Fortunately, your
car is pre-wired and pre-
ducted for air condition-
ing, even though there's
no air-conditioning
equipment in it. All cars
come that way now.
Why? So that if the buyer
decides, after the pur-
chase, that he'd rather
not go to every sales call
with a pool of butt sweat
collecting in his trou-
sers, he can come back
and have AC installed.
And $2,500 is about the

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

right price.
Ray: So this is a classic
case of the axiom "It's the
stingy man who spends
the most." Your boss
bought the XFE model:
the Excessively Frugal
Edition. He thought he'd
save money by making
you drive around in a car
without AC. But now it's
going to cost him.
Tom: How's it going to
cost him? Well, he can
bite the bullet and have
air conditioning in-
stalled in this car. That'll
cost him 2,500 bucks.
That's what we'd recom-
mend. But if he's unwill-
ing to do that, there are
alternatives.
Ray: He can hire a
new junior partner for
you. Then, the new guy
will be the low man on
the totem pole, and he'll
have to drive around in
this oven. Of course, then
the boss will have to get
you a new car with AC.
So that plan will cost him
$50,000 in salary and
benefits, plus another
$12,000 for a cheap new
car.
Tom: Alternatively, he
can hire two cheaper,
lower-level assistants for
you. Those assistants will
drive around with you in
the existing car. One of
them will spray you with
cool mist while the other


sits in the passenger seat
and waves a palm frond.
Figure $25,000 each
for those guys, plus the
fronds.
Ray: Or he can pay
for your fill-in workers,
when you start calling
in sick every time the
forecast calls for tem-
peratures of 85 degrees
or higher.
Tom: One way or the
other, you should reason
with him, Thomas, and
ask him to rectify this
situation. Remind him
that he's still getting a
great deal. Even with the
AC, he's getting a new car
for $8,500.
Ray: So tell him that
his credentials still will
be excellent. He'll still
be able to walk into any
cheapskate convention
with his head held high.

Case of a fuel
pump gone bad
Dear Tom and Ray: I
live in Houston, and on
a typical 104-degree day
this past summer, I took
my son's car to run some
errands and stopped first
to fill the tank. I then
drove to my first stop,
about 15 minutes away,
and went in to shop. I
was there about an hour.
I came out, started the
car and it rattled and
died. I tried starting it
multiple times, but it just
didn't seem like it was
getting any fuel. I walked
over to a nearby auto-re-
pair chain, told them my
story and the guy asked
me if my tank was empty
when I stopped for gas.
Well, it is my son's car, so
of course it was empty!
He immediately said that
I had cracked the fuel
pump by putting cold
gasoline into a hot gas
tank. Well, $650 later, the
car is running again, but


everyone I have told this
to says I was scammed.
Was he telling me the
truth, or just shining me
on? Hart
Ray: Wait a second,
Hart. I'm writing down
this story. I may be able
to make a few boat pay-
ments with this "cracked
fuel pump" idea.
Tom: We've never
heard of a cracked fuel
pump, Hart. The hous-
ing of the fuel pump is
metal. So I find it hard
to believe that it would
crack if it came into
contact with 50-degree
gasoline.
Ray: Maybe he meant
that the plastic impel-
ler cracked that's the
internal part of the pump
that actually pushes
the fuel. Even then, I've
never seen that happen
due to "cold" gasoline. It
just happens due to age
and use.
Tom: But assuming
they tested your fuel
pump and it was dead,
and that replacing the
fuel pump has solved
the problem, I'd have to
conclude that this guy
was right. At least his di-
agnosis was correct, even
though his explanation
was nutty.
Ray: I assume that
since this is your son's
car, and he always has
the tank on E, it's not ex-
actly a brand-new model.
On a high-mileage,
older car, anything can
go wrong at any time. I
think the fuel pump just
happened to die that day.
Tom: But not because
you filled up the tank.
If fuel pumps regularly
cracked when gas was
added on hot days, what
would people in Hous-
ton do all summer? Push
their cars around until
things cooled off in the
fall?


Portable potties:
New fuel source?
Dear Tom and Ray:
When I was younger, I
had a friend who had
an early-'80s Pontiac
Firebird. It was in rough
shape, and it had the 305
small-block engine with
a four-barrel carburetor.
It never seemed to run
smoothly, and it could
have used a tuneup.
During this time, the
owner of the Firebird
was living with a mu-
tual friend, who had a
little brother. The little
brother and his friend
didn't like owner of the
Firebird, so for a week
they urinated into a
plastic gallon jug behind
the garage, with the
intent of dumping it into
the gas tank of the Fire-
bird. So, one morning
the owner of the Firebird
showed up at my door
and told me to hop in.
He was really excited,
and when I got into the
car, he went on about
how his vehicle was
running the best it had
ever run, and he couldn't
figure out why. It was
true the engine ran
like a clock, and the dual
exhaust sounded great.
I had learned the night
before that the "home-
made octane booster"
had been added to the
tank. My question is
this: Was this just a fluke
occurrence? Or is every
portable potty a fuel
source just waiting to be
discovered? Rob
P.S. My apologies to the
man in the convertible
behind us on that fateful
day.
Tom: Well, I think
we've finally discovered
the secret behind Marvel
Mystery Oil!
Ray: We don't have any
idea, Rob. I've never tried


this, never wanted to try
it and don't intend to
ever try it.
Tom: I'm glad to hear
that, because now I can
eliminate that as the rea-
son my '78 Fiat has been
running so well lately.
Ray: The only possible
explanation I can even
make up is that the urea
in the urine served as a
cleaning solvent of some
kind and removed some
gums and varnishes from
the Firebird's carburetor
and allowed it to deliver
fuel more evenly.
Tom: You could say they
put a tiger in his tankld
Ray: But the fact that
we have other fuel-
system cleaners designed
specifically to remove
varnishes that don't as
far as I know contain
urea reinforces my belief
that this answer has no
basis in reality.
Tom: Of course, that
could be said about most
of my brother's answers.
Ray: I think this is
best left to the chemists
and chemical engineers
who read our column.

Exercise and the

immune system


I BUSINESS &~ i~~1[ SR I]E DIRECTORS] I


ly Wilson and Graham Nolan

7TAEf


DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I am a nurse who is into
exercise. This year, I have
increased the amount of
time I exercise and have
increased the exercise
difficulty.
I don't know if this is
just a coincidence or if
it's related to my new
program: I have had two
colds this year, one on top
of the other. Could the
increase in my exercise
routine have weakened
my immune system? What
do you think? J.E
ANSWER: Regular,
moderate-intensity
exercise enhances the
immune system. Exhaus-
tive exercise, on the other
hand, lowers body immu-
nity. By exhaustive, I mean
on a par with marathon
running. After such inten-
sive exercise, it takes the
body's immune system a
full week to restore itself.
Such exercise lowers
the number of circulating
white blood cells. They
are an integral part of our
defenses against infec-
tions. They also are an in-
tegral part of the immune
system. This high level of
exercise also reduces the
body's ability to produce
antibodies, another
important element in im-
munity from infections.
I don't know if you are
exercising at that level. I'm
more inclined to believe
your two colds were just
a fluke happenstance
and were not due to the
increase in time you are
spending exercising. You
probably had the mis-
fortune of coming into
contact with two different
cold viruses.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Can one safely exercise
with a cold? I have taken
it for granted that it is
better not to do so. I
have a friend who says
my attitude is wimpy.
Is it? H.L.
ANSWER: If a person
who has a cold feels well
enough to exercise, then
it's OK to do so. If you
work out in a gym with
lots of other people close
to you, it would be more
thoughtful not to exer-
cise, especially if you are
sneezing and your nose is
running.
The rule of thumb is
if cold symptoms are
above the neck, it's OK to
exercise. If they're below
the neck- coughing, for
example it's better not
to exercise.
If you have a fever, don't
exercise.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I started taking the amino
acids arginine, lysine and
ornithine to enhance my


Dr. Donohue

write Dr
Donohue at
PO. Box
536475,
Orlando,
FL 32853-6475

production of growth hor-
mone and my building-up
of muscles. What are your
thoughts on this? P.K.
ANSWER: At one time,
the combination of those
three amino acids to
stimulate growth hor-
mone production was the
rage. I haven't heard of
many people still using
this combination. I haven't
seen anything written
about it.
I don't know if those
amino acids really do
increase growth hormone
production. I have to
believe that it is a minus-
cule increase if it happens
at all.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
I remember you wrote
something about the
connection of heavy-duty
exercise with kidney dam-
age, but I can't remember
the details. Will you repeat
the information? EE
ANSWER: Some time
ago, I related a story told
to me by a friend who was
the team physician for a
local high school. One of
the school's athletes was
trying to break the record
for the number of con-
secutive sit-ups. He felt
fine following the session,
but the next morning his
abdominal muscles were
so sore he could barely
get out of bed. He went
to school and decided to
see the school nurse, who
called my friend. The boy's
urine had turned dark
brown.
My friend recog-
nized the signs of
rhabdomyolysis, a
wholesale breakdown
of muscle cells with the
release of substances
that damage kidneys. He
admitted the boy to the
hospital and treated him.
The boy did well and
made a full recovery. He's
not trying for any more
sit-up records.
Dr Donohue regrets that
he is unable to answer in-
dividual letters, but he will
incorporate them in his
column wiu'liw.'e /.. oss;ih/.
Readers may write him or
request an order form of
available health newslet-
ters at P.O. Box 536475,
Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

Stifling static cling


Dear Readers: The
winter months and cooler
weather are here, and
people will be using heat-
ers and fireplaces a lot
more. Static cling is sure
to follow! To reduce static
cling, you need to replace
the lost moisture in the
air. Here are some Heloise
helpful hints for doing so:
Use a small tabletop
fountain. The running wa-
ter will replace moisture,
and the sound is soothing.
Use a cool-mist
humidifier.
Simmer a large pot of
water on your stove to add
moisture. Add some or-
ange peels or a few drops
of your favorite essen-
tial oil for a nice aroma.
Check it often, and refill as
needed.
If you have clothes that
cling, mist them with wa-
ter from a fine-mist spray
bottle. Just be careful.
Silk and other fine fabrics
should not be sprayed.
These ideas and many
more are in my latest
book, "Handy Household
Hints From Heloise."

Picture-perfect
Dear Heloise: So many
of your readers ask you
to reprint favorite recipes
because they lost their
copy that I want to share
a great solution to this
problem.
I lost my French bread
recipe! I was in a store
with a friend, and she held
up a pretty, framed picture


BABY BLUES By Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott
~ ooo\ N! NR 1 4!-i


Hints from Heloise

for a kitchen or dining-
room wall. It gave me the
idea to frame my recipe if I
could find it.
Well, I did find it! I print-
ed a copy and decorated it
with artwork, and now it
hangs on my kitchen wall
... forever!
This hint could make
a family heirloom recipe
even more precious. Beau-
tifully framed, it could
make a great Christmas
gift for someone you know
who really enjoyed the
recipe. -A Reader, via

Handy leaf blower
Dear Heloise: I was
tired of using a broom to
sweep the large, wrap-
around porch on my Vic-
torian bed and breakfast.
One day, my husband was
using his leaf blower on
the lawn. I grabbed it and
"blew off" the porch. It
was great, because I could
use it on chair cushions
and windowsills as well.
Saves a lot of time and
energy! Thanks for your
great column. We read it
in the Cecil Whig in Mary-
land. JoAnn Dawson,

Underweight college student MALLARD FILLMORE By Bruce

can't stomach dad's insults IcAOW


DEAR ABBY: I'm an
18-year-old male living on
my own in an apartment
not far from my parents'
home. They visit me often
and take turns driving me
to the local college because
I don't have a car.
My parents tend to
worry about me. I'm
rather thin, but I eat
healthy. My dad goes over
the top with his concern
about my weight and it
is hurtful. He has called
me a "cadaver" in front
of friends. And when he
drops me off after classes,
he often says, "Now go eat
something fattening!"
I have tried to discuss
how his repeated com-
ments affect my self-
confidence, but am always
met with, "I'm your father.
I have every right to be
concerned." Am I wrong
to take offense at my dad's
brand of concern? Is there
anything I can do to evade
these hurtful comments?
- TWIG WITH FEELINGS
DEAR TWIG: Your fa-
ther's attempt to "help" you
by ridiculing you in front
of your contemporaries is
insensitive. The fact that
he is your father does not
entitle him to be cruel.
If there is a student
health center at your col-
lege, go there and talk to a
medical professional about
what is a healthy weight
for your height and age,
and whether any medical
tests might be necessary to
verify your health. If not,
consult your family physi-
cian. This may provide the
"proof" you need in dis-
cussions with your father.
Some males fill out later
than others.
You should also ask
your mother to point out
to your dad that what he's
doing is counterproduc-
tive. Perhaps she can make
him see the light. If that
doesn't work, arrange other
transportation to and from
school so you will be less
dependent on your father.
DEAR ABBY: A friend
and I were talking about
how wimpy a lot of guys in
our generation are. We're
both in our mid-20s and
seldom meet guys who
take charge.
Several times we have


Dear Abby

met guys who said they'd
call and set up a date. We
know they're interested
because they have told our
friends they'd like to date
us again. But then they
don't call. Try as we might
to give them chances to ask
us out, they usually don't.
I know that traditional
dating rules are often
discarded, but I don't want
to be the aggressor. Their
being "scared" isn't an ac-
ceptable excuse, much less
an attractive quality. Why
do women so often have to
do all the work nowadays
or end up alone? PRE-
FERS TRADITIONAL
DEAR PREFERS TRADI-
TIONAL: Women do not
have to do ALL the work
in a relationship or risk re-
maining single for life. But
they do have to shoulder a
lot more of the responsibil-
ity than a generation ago
as a result of the women's
movement. (Yes, I know I'll
catch "heck" for saying it.)
As women have become
more independent and
aggressive, the old rules of
romance have started to
disappear.
Men aren't stupid. Their
view is, "If women are
willing to do the courting,
why should men do it?"
The guys you've described
aren't wimps; their pas-
sivity hasn't turned other
women off. Sending you
messages through your
friends instead of being di-
rect and following through
on their promises to call is
business as usual for them.
While their behavior may
seem immature, it has
worked for them before.
Don't give up hope.
There are men who are
interested in old-fashioned
romance, but they are
fewer in number. Be
patient, keep looking and
you'll find one.


"And that repentance and remission sins should be
preached in His name among all nations, beginning at
Jerusalem." Luke 24:4 7
The Bible not only gives us the message but in whose
name it is to be delivered. Bypass this plain directive of
the Savior and we really have nothing to say. Pause now
and breathe that mighty name in prayer and praise.

ary tales. You'll avoid experiencing the kind of
hardships you hear about.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).There's a fine line
between being bossy and taking charge of a situ-

the instincts and manners of others as they try to
control things that are not their business.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).The best thing to do
when you feel that you are personally in a bit of
