The city is going to have a look at its noise ordinances in response to
complaints about loud music at Pineapples Island Grill.


Complaints spur noise code scrutiny


By GREG GILES
NEws EDITOR

Add noise to the nuisance
laws the city of Venice is
looking to strengthen.
The scrutiny is due to several
recent complaints about a
downtown restaurant with live
music.
On Tuesday, City Council
voted to have its city attorney
compare the Sarasota County's


newly revamped noise ordi-
nance to the city's current law
to see which one is better.
City Attorney David Persson
will then sit down with Venice
Police Chief Tom McNulty to
see what his needs are and
determine whether it's better to
adopt the county ordinance or
tweak the city's, before bringing
any proposed changes to City
Council for consideration.
"I've had a number of emails


from residents complaining
about the noise," said Mayor
John Holic. "Our ordinance is
very difficult to enforce. It has
some vague portions. It just
seemed like we weren't getting
anywhere or could do any-
thing for the people who were
complaining."
Mostly, the complaints have
been about Pineapples Island

Heading home

Grove Terrace residents return


By BOB MUDGE
SENIOR WRITER

Don't tell Mary Smith and
Mary Davis they can't go home
again.
The two ladies were longtime
residents of Grove Terrace, the
city's only federal low-income
housing community, until they
had to leave in 2009 so it could
be razed and replaced.
On Wednesday, they got
a tour of what it made way
for -Venetian Walk Senior
Apartments, a low-income and
affordable housing community
for people 62 and older. To say
they were impressed would be a
huge understatement.
"Oh my God, I can't believe
it," said Smith, who had lived at
Grove Terrace since 1970. "Love
it. I don't know how to act."
She said she was so excited at
seeing her unit that she couldn't
remember what number it was.


"Y'all did a good job," said
Dixon, who used to clean the
apartments at Grove Terrace
when someone moved out. "A
real good job."
As former Grove Terrace resi-
dents, they had priority to rent at
Venetian Walk. Two other former
residents will join them. Another
two former residents who were
age-eligible decided not to
make the move, according to
Martha Thomas, Venice Housing
Authority manager.

A prayer answered
Since moving out, Smith
and Dixon have been living in
apartments along Capri Isles
Boulevard, using vouchers to
help pay the rent. So has former
resident Elizabeth Reid, whose
daughter and live-in caregiver
Elois Gibson toured the fa-
cility on her mother's behalf
Wednesday.


She was equally impressed.
"Beautiful," she said. "I would
move in in a heartbeat."
She admitted to having doubts
that Venetian Walk would get
built. Smith and Davis said they
never lost faith, though Davis
sought a little insurance.
"I was praying for us to move
back here," she said.
And they will, though they'll
have to wait: Their current leases
don't expire until June 30.
"I wish I could move tomor-
row," Dixon said.

Together again
When it was demolished in
2009, Grove Terrace had provid-
ed low-income housing for more
than 40 years. But the all-wood
buildings near Hatchett Creek
had seen better days.
Rehabbing the units would
have been expensive and

Josh Kaufman's performance of Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" brought down
the house on "The Voice" Monday night.


Former local hopes to


be 'The Voice'


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
You could say that music
comes naturally to Josh
Kaufman, the soulful singer
who was voted into the top
10 on NBC's "The Voice" this
week.
Kaufman said that both
his mother, Beth Gilbert,
and father, Mark Kaufman,
were musically talented, and
encouraged his love of music.
And because his mother was
a minister of music in their
hometown church, he had
ample opportunity to learn
and a stage on which to hone
his performing skills.
"When I was 4 years old, my
mom used to sit me up on the
piano in church and I'd sing,"
he said. "Music has always
been in my family and my life."
That early start has served
Kaufman well. He is now
impressing not only the judges
on "The Voice," but the rest of
the country as well. As a result
of his stunning live perfor-
mance Monday night, viewers
of the show voted in incredible
numbers to push him through
to the next round.


PROVIDED PHOTO


Many of those votes came
from the Sun Coast, where
Kaufman has a large fan base
that includes North Port
residents Mark and Doris
Kaufman, his father and step-
mother, who own MK Roofing
in Englewood and Sarasota.
During the "blind audi-
tions" the first time singers
perform in front of the celebri-
ty judges/coaches all four of
them wanted Josh Kaufman on
their team. Initially, he chose
Adam Levine as his coach, but
during the "battle rounds,"
Usher stole Kaufman away and
became his new coach.
Kaufman said that working
with an artist who is as talent-
ed as Usher has really helped
him, especially in improving
his stage presence.
"It's a pretty irreplaceable
experience to get advice from
someone who not only has
that level of talent, but is also
an incredible performer," he
said. "He's so amazing, and he
just commands the stage. He's
so good at connecting with
the audience, and he's such a
good communicator. I'm really

Lake Venice cuts ribbon A f


after course redo


By JOSH TAYLOR
WWSB 7

After years of planning and
months of construction, a
$1.5 million dollar project to
rearrange the Lake Venice Golf
Club at the Venice Municipal
Airport is finally complete.
After lots of concern,
officials finally cut the ribbon
Friday.
Due to airport safety regu-
lations, nine holes had to be
rebuilt, but drainage issues


Good morning,
Gondolier Sun
subscriber
Herbert Nelson


slowed progress.
To use a golf term, the
airport and the neighboring
golf course had a tough lie.
"The FAA (Federal Aviation
Administration) has certain
standards for the separation
of people and activities at
the end of the runway," said
Airport Administrator Chris
Rozanski.
The problem was that some
of the course was located in
the newer federal safety zones.
The family of the club's


IRONT ACTIONN


president, Michael Wheeler,
helped start it decades ago.
"It's been there for 50 years;
never had a problem, never
had an issue," Wheeler said.
Complying with the regula-
tions meant a total reworking.
of nine holes.
The land is actually leased
from the airport.
"There were some ideas
presented by their engineers, PHOTO BY JOSH TAYLOR, VWVSB 7
and things like that, from a Lake Venice Golf Club celebrated the reopening of its last nine holes on
Friday. A ribbon-cutting marked the end of a year's long transformation that
COURSE 113 included relocating the driving range.

Ride with the mayor


By MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST COLUMNIST
May is National Bike Month, and what better
way to promote and celebrate than to accompa-
ny Mayor John Holic on a leisurely bicycle ride
around the island of Venice.
With spring in the air and the community
settling down into its normal off-season pace,
you are invited to join other area cyclists in
showcasing our community's interest in and
support of cycling.
Participating riders will meet at the recently
constructed rest stop/information center
located under the west side of the Venice
Avenue Bridge at 9:30 Saturday morning, May 3.
There is ample parking under the bridge and
at the adjacent parking lot. Of course, for many
the preferred mode in getting there will be their
bicycle.
The route the mayor will lead us on is an
8-mile ride that will head south along the
Venetian Waterway Park to Caspersen Park, and
then turn north along Harbor Drive. When we
reach Sharky's we will stop for a break, at which
time refreshments will be served.
During this break an informal question-
and-answer session will be held during which
we will have an opportunity to discuss with
the mayor, and perhaps others, questions you
may have regarding city business. Following the
break, we will continue north to the arboretum
in West Blalock Park, where the ride ends.
National Bike Month, sponsored by the
League of American Bicyclists, was established
in 1956. The purpose of this ride, and other
planned events later in the month, is to pro-
mote cycling by encouraging riders of all skill
levels to participate.
We ask all of you to join us in demonstrating
our city's interest in cycling and showing once
again that we are proud to be a Bicycle Friendly
Community.
See you next Saturday morning.

Annual statewide


sea turtle monitor


meeting

Coastal Wildlife Club volunteers traveled to Deerfield Beach
for the 2014 Florida Marine Turtle Permit Holder Meeting.
Hosted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) and the Sea Turtle Conservancy, the
annual meeting is an opportunity for nesting beach monitors
from throughout Florida to learn from research scientists,
share their own experiences, and enjoy the camaraderie
of friends and colleagues. Of the 2,147 monitors in Florida
last year, about 400 were at the meeting. Presentations
included updates by leading sea turtle scientists. Speakers
discussed Florida's expanded rehabilitation facilities and also
announced a new FWC MASH unit for cold-stunned turtles.
There were reports on DNA studies of green turtles to reveal
lineage and on satellite telemetry to discover where the
turtles go.

Sarasota Memorial Health CEO stepping down


FROM SARASOTA
MEMORIAL HOSPITAL

After nearly 10 years,
Gwen MacKenzie is step-
ping down as president
and CEO of Sarasota
Memorial Health Care
System and returning
to her home state to
assume a position in the
nation's largest Catholic
and nonprofit health
system.
MacKenzie will remain
at Sarasota Memorial
through May. On June 1,
she takes a national
leadership role with
Ascension Health, with
executive oversight of the
organization's Michigan
Ministries.


There, MacKenzie will
be responsible for the
administrative direction,
strategic
positioning
and oper-
',' nations of
C- Ascension
Health's
five health
systems in
Michigan,
MACKENZIE which
collectively have 31,000
employees, 150,000-plus
patient discharges and
4 million outpatient visits
throughout the state.
"Sarasota Memorial
is a very special organi-
zation with outstanding
doctors and staff, and
it's been an honor to


serve this community,"
MacKenzie said. "It
will be hard to leave so
many good friends and
colleagues. I've had the
privilege of working with
a phenomenal team.
I'm proud of all we have
accomplished these past
nine years and I know
that SMH is on a path to
continued success."
Marguerite Malone,
chair of the Sarasota
County Public Hospital
Board, announced
MacKenzie's resignation
to staff, physicians and
key partners Wednesday.
The board has ap-
pointed SMH's Chief
Operating Officer David
Verinder as interim CEO,


effective June 1.
Verinder joined SMH
in 2006 as chief financial
officer and has served as
COO since 2010.
The hospital board ex-
pects a smooth transition
as it leads a nationwide
search for a successor.
"Thanks to Gwen's
outstanding leadership
and vision, she is leaving
Sarasota Memorial in
an exceptionally strong
position, from both a
quality and financial per-
spective," Malone said.
"We have an experienced
board and strong leader-
ship team in place, ready
to maintain and build
upon the stable founda-
tion Gwen has shaped."


Since joining SMH in
2005, MacKenzie has
successfully implement-
ed numerous patient
care and operational
improvements. The
organization has been
repeatedly honored by
the American Nurses
Credentialing Center
(Magnet designation),
U.S. News, Thomson
Reuters, HealthGrades
and numerous other na-
tional organizations for
its care and performance.
The organization's
positive financial re-
sults paved the way for
bond-rating upgrades
and a $250 million
campus improvement
project. MacKenzie also


led the organization
through a period of
unprecedented growth
and improved access
to care, opening seven
outpatient centers in the
past nine years, includ-
ing Sarasota Memorial's
freestanding Emergency
Room in North Port.
"We and the Sarasota
community will miss
a wonderful leader
and friend," Malone
said. "She has made
a tremendous impact
that reaches far beyond
the walls of Sarasota
Memorial and positions
us well for the future.
We wish her all the best
and much success in
her new role."


Budget amendment is a doozy


Mss an dSinthe6ewsapr


By GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
It may be the first time
the city of Venice has ever
seen a mid-year budget
amendment almost as large
as its own general fund.
Major pass-through
grant funds came through
early in the budget year
for a number of projects
involving the airport,
beach renourishment
and bonding refinance.
The city will add its own
contributions to fully fund
them.
Finance Director Jeff
Snyder said he's seen
some large budget
amendments, when
previous beach renourish-
ment funds came through,
but nothing of the size of
this year's amendment at
$21.9 million.
That's nearly the
amount the city brings
in to the general fund, or
GF, from local ad valorem
taxes in a given year.
When state, federal and
other revenue is counted,

by the state Department

is estimated to cost
$17.5 million, with the

pitching in $12 million.
$4.95 million toward

Venice Municipal Airport,
of which $4 million comes
from the FAA. That will be

Bayflite looking for new base


By IAN ROSS
STAFF WRITER

The lease for the
Bayflite helicopter
stationed near North
Port City Hall expires
at the end of the year,
and Bayfront Health no
longer wants to renew it.
"I am aware of the
issues that North Port has
had with the presence of
the Bayflite helicopter.
It is my strong desire
to work with you and
the city of North Port to
address these issues and
resolve them in a manner
that is satisfactory to
the City Commission,"
Bayfront CEO Kathryn
Gillette wrote in a letter
to commissioners.
But if the helicopter
remains based in North
Port, it will be at a differ-
ent location.
According to city
documents, Bayflite and
the city of North Port
have a two-year contract
that started in January
2012, with Bayflite as
the city's tenant. Per the
contract, Bayflite pays
$17,904 annually to rent
the space, which includes
use of the landing pad,
a storage building and a
fuel tank.
Although Bayfront
Health expressed a
desire to renew the lease
in an April 2 letter to
the City Commission,


the letter from Gillette,
dated April 15, says the
opposite.
The letter announced
new leadership in the St.
Petersburg-based Bayflite
operation, which trans-
ports patients to area
trauma centers.
"In tandem with the
change in leadership,
we would also like to
immediately withdraw
the current (April 2) letter
of record with the city of
North Port sent by (pre-
vious Bayflite program
coordinator) Mr. Scott
Wyant," the letter states.
"It would be our goal
to maintain the lease no
longer than Dec. 31. We
are currently looking at
three alternative sites
outside the city of North
Port, and it is quite possi-
ble that we would be able
to relocate prior to the
Dec. 31 lease expiration,"
it reads.
Bayfront Health
representatives declined
to comment on the
decision Thursday,
stating they wished to
wait until Monday's City
Commission meeting to
speak on the matter.
Commissioners are
slated to discuss the
Bayflite helicopter lease
in a meeting that begins
at 6 p.m. Monday.
"I would love to be able
to convince them to stay
in North Port," North Port


Mayor Jim Blucher said.
However, if Bayfront's
decision to move Bayflite
out of North Port is final,
"there's not much we
could do about it," he
said.
While he said he
understood the noise
complaints, he thought
the helicopter's pres-
ence was a boon to
city residents. He also
said he didn't buy into
safety concerns related to
helicopter crashes.
"When you're talking
life and death and
I think I've been
convinced by enough
doctors (and) paramed-
ics it's minutes, not
hours" that make the
difference, he said.
Blucher said the "is-
sues that North Port has
had" to which Gillette
referred in her letter
most likely are noise and
safety complaints from
residents.
"I would say that's
mainly because of the
emails they've received
from, basically, the
Heron Creek (Golf &
Country Club) neighbor-
hood," he said.
However, Blucher said,
since the last meeting
discussing the Bayflite
location, he's received
many pro-Bayflite
emails, which he sus-
pects Bayfront Health
hasn't seen.

The lease for the Bayflite helicopter stationed near North Port City Hall will expire Dec. 31. The
service provider, Bayfront Health, initially wanted to renew the lease, but no longer wishes to do
so. Instead, it is opting to look at three alternative sites outside North Port.


"Will (the community
support) change their
mind at Monday's
meeting? I don't know,"
he said.
Resident Charline
Christofori is organizing
a group of residents who
don't want the Bayflite
operation to leave North
Port, encouraging them
to wear blue to the
commission meeting
to show support for the
operation.
"Everybody's afraid to
speak up and say, 'This
doesn't bother me,' but
I know there are people
who want the helicop-
ter," she said.
Christofori suspects
one of the city commis-
sioners is to blame for


Bayflite's sudden change
of heart.
"Somebody had to
talk to them verbally
to prompt that type of
action," she said.
Jacqueline Moore,
a candidate for City
Commission Seat 4,
which Blucher will vacate


this year due to term
limits, is concerned
about the potential loss
of the helicopter.
"We need access to
quality health care in
North Port, and it would
be a shame to lose
Bayflite," she said.

focusing on that."
Though Kaufman and
his fellow competitors
have been in Los Angeles
the past few weeks,
it has been far from
a vacation for them.
Kaufman said that there
are so many little (and
big) things that go into
presenting a production
the size of "The Voice"
that the contestants are
kept busy most of the
day and night.
Though the major-
ity of the day is spent
rehearsing with and
without their coaches,
the way the contestants
appear on television
is also important, so a
group of hairstylists,
makeup artists and
wardrobe professionals
works with the singers.
The official story
behind Kaufman's
trademark fedora that
he usually wears for
performances is that he
was in Sak's Fifth Avenue
in a mall in Indianapolis,
where he lives, when a
sales clerk sold him what
she called a "lucky hat."
He wore that hat when
he auditioned for the
first time for "The Voice"
in St. Louis. It obviously
worked.
Kaufman said that the
contestants have quite
a bit of interaction with
each other when they're
away from the stage,
but except for his own
coach, he doesn't see the
judges much away from
the auditorium.
"Most of the situations
we see them in are the
kinds of things you see
on camera," he said.
"But from what I have
seen of them, they
genuinely seem to like
each other. The contes-
tant that I was closest
to was T.J. Wilkins (who


Josh Kaufman showed interest
and promise in music at a very
young age.

was recently voted off
the show). We had a lot
of the same musical
connections."
Back home in
Indianapolis, where he
has lived since 1995,
Kaufman has a wife,
Jennifer Meyer, and
three children ages 2, 4
and 6. His primary job
is as an ACT/SAT tutor,
for which his philosophy
degree from Northern
Illinois University has
prepared him well.
But he's also a sing-
er, songwriter and
acoustic guitar player
for his band, The New
Etiquette, which he said
is "rooted in soul."
"We play mostly
around small venues in
Indianapolis," he said.
"For the last couple of
years, we've played in a
little place there called
The Chatterbox.
"The other members
of my band are really


excited for me now."
The band has been in
a holding pattern while
everyone waits to see
what happens to him on
"The Voice." Kaufman
said that since the show
has begun live produc-
tions, the whole process
has been intensified. He
said that he's well aware
that not only is everyone
in the large auditorium
where he is performing
listening to him, but so
are millions of viewers at
home.
If he were to win "The
Voice," he would receive
a recording contract and
would probably have a
record out before the
end of the year. There
will also be a tour over
the summer that will
include the top three
finalists from this season
and the top three final-
ists from last season's
show.

feeling confident about

NEWS EDITOR

Have a complaint or
complex problem with
city of Venice services?
There's a new Helpline
-941-999-1415 -res-
idents can now take
advantage of.
The phone line went
live two weeks ago when
it was first announced on
the city's website.
City Council members
authorized the helpline
last year after a dis-
cussion about various
ways in which they were
dealing with citizen
complaints. Some tried
to solve the problem
as best they could,


while others passed the
complaint on. Some took
the complaints to the city
manager to handle, while
others tried to funnel the
complaint to the proper
department.
It became clear what
the city needed was a
single point of contact
to handle issues that
citizens were bringing to
city leaders.
Meet Pam Johnson -
the city's go-to employee
and marketing and
communications officer
- who will be handling
the calls.
Don't be put off,
Johnson said, if you get
a recording because
she's in a meeting or on


another line. The help-
line will record the mes-
sage, transcribe it and
send it to her via email,
making it easier and
quicker for her to retrieve
an answer that may need
to be researched.
"The reason to have
the helpline is so people
who have complaints
and problems can go
to one specific place,"
Johnson said. "That way
we can track it and get
some answers, instead
of going all over city hall
and trying to get what
they need."
"Sometimes a problem
will involve several de-
partments and there has
to be consensus among


those department offi-
cials on how to resolve it
before we can get back
to the person. It's almost
like an ombudsman
position.
"I call the person right
away to let them know
what it is we're going
to do to get the infor-
mation, or to describe
the process we have
to go through to get
resolution."
So far, most of the 16
calls to date have been
tourism- or service-re-
lated, like where to get
information to find
shark's teeth, or where
to go to get a permit or
license.
"Many of those


questions get answered
right away," Johnson
said.
Already, however, one
of the calls required a
field visit.
"A person felt there
was a problem with a
neighbor who was doing
some landscaping and
might be compromising
a stormwater drain,"
Johnson said. "Sure
enough, there was an
issue that needed to be
resolved. The homeown-
er fixed it. We did some
education. The next day
there was some rain...
and no flooding. It's the
kind of thing the helpline
was designed to resolve.
'A lot of people have

been going to elected
officials (for conflict res-
olution). We're the ones
working in the ditches.
If it goes to staff first,
we can figure out what
needs to happen to make
their wish happen. I
think it's more efficient."

Grill on U.S. 41 Business.
The restaurant has an
open-air covered area
that features live music
six days of the week.
Calls to owner Tom
Carney were not immedi-
ately returned.
Five complaints have
been filed with the Venice
Police Department since
February citing noise,
four of them within the
last five weeks.
Dozens of complaints
about noise from Bob's
Boathouse at Phillippi
Creek in Sarasota caused
the county to take anoth-
er look at its ordinance.
On March 19, the
county adopted new


rules that would allow
code enforcement or law
enforcement to measure
sound from the com-
plainant's property line
to the closest property
line of the alleged offend-
ing business if it's not
safe to measure it from
the property line where
it's coming from, or is
difficult to measure.
The county also lowered
the decibel level limit for
some noise, like outdoor
amplified music, and
now requires businesses
to lower the music after
10 p.m. instead of 11 p.m.
The new law also applies
to residential areas. In
general, the new law low-
ers the acceptable noise
level about 5 decibels. And
it uses a second decibel
sound limit to measure
the booming bass levels


prevalent in today's music.
Holic said he hopes the
city can make the same
kind of changes to its law,
if it's appropriate.
"We aren't doing the
police any favors, and
we're not doing the
residents any favor with
our current law," Holic
said. "It's difficult to
monitor. The county did
a complete study and
now monitors at high
and lower frequencies.
I thought it would be a
good idea to compare
our law and see if it's
time to revise ours or
keep it in place.
"There's no doubt about
it. I live over a mile away
(from Pineapples) but
there are times when I can
hear it. That's when you
know it's kind of loud."

2nd generation patrol officer sworn in


Two newVenice police
officers were sworn in this
week.
On Tuesday, Mayor
John Holic did the honors,
swearing in patrol officers
Erin Mungavin and
Benjamin Neff.
Mungavirn's father,
Patrick, was aVPD detec-
tive for 17 years. He retired
in 2006.
"It's great to see
father-son, father-daughter,
mother and son... keeping
it in the family," Holic said.
"This is one of those situ-
ations where you start to
feel old," joked VPD Chief


Tom McNulty, standing
beside Mungavin during
the swearing-in ceremony
at a City Council meeting.
"Her dad and I used to
work together as partners
in the detective division.
So when Erin's application
came forward, first of all
I was honored her dad
had recommended her
to come here. But really it
made me feel old because
I remember being at some
parties at her house where
we were drinking soda and
Erin was running around
this big," he said lowering
his hand.

Benjamin Neff is
sworn in by Mayor
John Holic.

Burglary suspects nabbed in North Venice


The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office arrested
four South Florida men
near the Laurel Road 1-75
interchange earlier this
week for trying to break
into a home in Sarasota
while children were
alone inside.
Their mother left the
house to take one child
to school but received
a text from one of the
children at home that
said someone was trying
to break in.
She told the kids to
run out the back sliding
doors to a neighbor's
house. When they did,
the oldest child snapped
a picture of the suspects'
vehicle in the driveway.
A witness who called
911 saw two men run to
the car, which sped off
northbound.
A description of the
vehicle and the tag
number were radioed to
deputies, who located
and stopped the car on
1-75 at Laurel Road.
Occupants of the
vehicle were identified
as 22-year-old Trevon
Jackson, 19-year old


I POLICE BEAT
The information for Police Beat is gathered from police, sheriff's office, Florida Highway
Patrol, jail and fire records. Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is
determined by the court system.


Darian Jones, 24-year-old
Marcus Felder and
20-year-old Gary Saulby
Jr. Each suspect told
detectives a different
story as to why they were
in the area.
All four men are
charged with one count
each of attempted resi-
dential burglary. Jackson
is also charged with
violation of probation.

CAN BACK PAIN HAVE
GENETIC CAUSES?
While most people with back pain can point to a specific
event or series of actions that led to their pain, some might
wonder if genetics might play a role. With this in mind,
researchers recently examined 300 sets of male twins who
reported different risk factors for back pain. For instance,
one twin might have had a sedentary job while the other
was involved with heavy lifting. Researchers found that
despite differences in risk, many of the twin brothers both
had back pain. Moreover, shared back pain was found to be
most prevalent among identical twins, who have the same
DNA. These findings led the researchers to believe that
back pain may have a genetic component.
P.S. A comprehensive assessment of a patient's spine can
help identify factors that could give rise to back pain as
well as point to treatment and strategies for averting pain.

Received April 22, 2014
From April 28 through May 9, the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) is conducting a
new coastal flood hazard study for
Sarasota County. Engineering firm
Risk Assessment Mapping and
Planning Partners (RAMPP), a joint
venture consisting of Dewberry,
URS, ESP, and subcontractors are
performing field reconnaissance
along the coast of the county. The
purpose is to collect data that will
include obtaining GPS coordinates,
taking digital pictures and conducting
field assessment of beach and near
shore areas. If engineers need to
enter privately-owned property, the
contracting firm will make every
attempt possible to contact the
home owner in advance and seek
permission. The engineers will
respect the home owner's property
and will not interfere with their use
of it. Upon request, the engineers
will identify themselves by driver's
license and this letter of introduction.

The state of health


By STEVEN J. SMITH
SUN CORRESPONDENT
The County Health
Rankings & Roadmaps
program, which measures
vital health factors in most
U.S. counties, has ranked
Sarasota County eighth
out of Florida's 67 counties
in its 2014 report.
The program, a col-
laboration between the
nonprofit RobertWood
Johnson Foundation
and the University of
Wisconsin Population
Health Institute, annually
surveys such factors as
high school graduation
rates, obesity, smoking,


unemployment, access to
healthy foods, the quality
of air and water, income
and teen births. From that
information it determines
which counties are the
healthiest and therefore
the ones in which resi-
dents will enjoy a better
health outcome, based
on an equal weighting of
length and quality of life.
Charlotte County
ranked 27th in the report.
Although Sarasota County
placed considerably
higher overall, the study
pointed out both counties
share "areas to explore,"
in which both fared

OUR VIEW



Who doesn't like other people's money?


n June, the American Association
of Community Theatre will hold
its WorldFest here for the second
time. No other city has hosted it more
than once, and there's a chance Venice
could become its permanent home.
In November, the Sarasota Chalk
Festival will make its debut in down-
town Venice.
So far this year, we've already had
several art festivals, the Venice Book
Fair and Writers Festival, the Shark's
Tooth Festival and the Suncoast BBQ
Bash. By the time the chalk artists get
to town, several other events, includ-
ing Sun Fiesta, will have taken place.
Each one means crowds, congested
streets and roads and a longer time to
get a seat in a restaurant. And money
to local businesses. So we say, keep
bringing them on. And if anyone has
an idea for another one, let's hear it.
A lack of diversification in this area's
economy means that when the rest of
the nation gets a cold, we can come
down with pneumonia. Anything that


affects the number of seasonal visitors
we're used to or the money they can
spend has an impact across pretty
much all businesses.
Even as we continue our recovery
from the recent recession it official-
ly ended in the first quarter of 2009
- things have hardly taken off like a
rocket.
Real estate has rebounded but that
industry is still in recovery mode,
as is the car business. Stores and
restaurants had a good season but
they're hardly as busy now as a couple
of months ago. Health-related busi-
nesses just saw a bunch of patients
go home and are plagued by constant
worries about changes in their
reimbursement.
What they all have in common is
that they all do better when there
are more customers around. Sure,
some full-time residents are glad to
see the snowbirds and tourists leave
when season ends and they get "their"
city back, but it's not long before the


money they spend is missed. An out-
of-season infusion of revenue is good
for them and the area as a whole, and
it always has been.
Relative newcomers may not be
aware that the Shark's Tooth Festival,
which used to be held in August,
originated as an event to bring people
to Venice during the doldrums of sum-
mer to give a boost to area businesses.
Similarly, Sun Fiesta long consid-
ered the last hurrah for locals before
season included an air show for a
couple of years for the same reason,
among others.
Both events have undergone
transformations, but they still bring
visitors who stay, eat, drink and make
merry as local cash registers ring.
And because many attendees are only
visiting -WorldFest, at six days, is
by far the longest event the only
special accommodation they need is
patience.
Sure, there will be people in our
way wandering around looking for an


address, sitting at our favorite table or
buying that item we wanted but the
store only had one of. We think that's
a small price to pay to host events that
lure people to the area to patronize
local businesses, putting money in the
city's and county's coffers that doesn't
have to come out of our pockets.
Who knows? Maybe some of them
will fall in love with Venice the way the
rest of us did and take a home out of
the for-sale inventory.
We're aware that the thought of
more people coming here, even
on a temporary basis, freaks some
residents out. They worry that Venice
could lose the small town charm that
attracted them, as if Venice has always
looked the way it does now.
Having seen how the city has
evolved, we have confidence that it
can survive repeated onslaughts of
visitors who have just as much right
to be here as we do. And we hope City
Council will continue to welcome
them with open arms.


Help feed hungry children


hat if the entire pop-
ulation of the city of
Venice were at risk of
going hungry this summer, and
you could do something, right
now, to prevent it?
If you're aVenice resident
and your pantry was full this
morning, don't worry no
need to jump up and check it
again. But for many families in
our region, including here in
Venice, such worry is real and
persistent, and this summer it
will grow.
About 21,000 students in
Sarasota County Schools -
that's the population of our
city qualify for free or re-
duced-price meals. That means
each day during the school
year, they can get a nutritious,
balanced breakfast and lunch.
Many also take home food-
filled backpacks for the week-
end, thanks to programs like All
Faiths Food Bank's BackPack
Kids.
But last summer, less than a
quarter of those children took
part in school district-aligned
summer feeding programs.
What happened to the other
16,000? And what about any
younger siblings who aren't
included in the school-age
count, or parents who might go
without so their kids can eat?
When school stopped,
did the meals stop too? That
uncertainty is enough to turn
the stomachs of even the most
seasoned hunger-relief experts.
This is why All Faiths Food
Bank with support from
community partners in Venice
and beyond launched the
Campaign Against Summer
Hunger. Running through
May 10, it's a food and fund
drive to shore up the food bank
for the summer, when a child in
our community is most likely to
experience hunger.
Numbers are one thing, but
let's think about who some of
these children are. Like the
four siblings being cared for
by their grandmom in Venice,
who had no idea a year ago
that she would be trying to feed
and raise her grandkids on her
fixed income. Or the family of
six in Englewood, where mom
and dad have done everything
right, working multiple jobs, yet
still can't keep a roof over their
heads and food on the table in
the wake of the Great Recession.
Then there's the banquet
server and bartender who says
his growing 7-year-old eats like
a 14-year-old. He told me he
makes enough money through
the school year but when his
hours and tips dry up in the
summer, he doesn't always


know how he'll feed his son.
Not only do more kids need
help when school's out, but
our community's patterns of
seasonal residence and em-
ployment deal a double blow.
Food donations drop steeply, as
many snowbirds who reliably
supported the food bank
through the winter head north.
At the same time, more
full-time residents must seek
food assistance amid reduced
hours and earnings. (Top it
all off with the drastic cuts in
federal feeding programs that
will lead to even more demand
on All Faiths, but that's food for
another column.)
Now for the hopeful news:
You can help, right now. The
Campaign Against Summer
Hunger has set bold goals for
food and financial donations
that will provide thousands
more children with the nutri-
tious food they need to thrive.
But we need our entire commu-
nity's support. Here's how:
Empty your pantry. If you
or someone you know will
be leaving town, empty your
shelves of nonperishables so
the food bank can restock its
own. Drop off donations at
any Goodwill or fire station in
Sarasota County.
Host a food drive. The
campaign has engaged many
community partners in col-
lecting food and spreading the
word to members, employees,
and customers. Besides Gulf
Coast Community Foundation,
partners in the Venice area
include Hazeltine Nurseries,
PGT Industries, the Venice
YMCA, Venice Magazine and
the Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce. Go to SkipALunch.
org to learn how you can be a
partner too.
Donate (and double) your
dollars. Generous friends of
the food bank have put up a
$500,000 matching challenge
during the campaign, and cash
gifts can have the greatest im-
pact thanks to the food bank's
buying power. Give online at
AllFaithsFoodBank.org or mail
checks to All Faiths Food Bank,
8171 Blaikie Court, Sarasota, FL
34240.
We know that food donations
alone won't solve underlying
problems like unemployment,
low wages and achievement
gaps that can lead to food
insecurity. Gulf Coast is hard at
work on systemic initiatives to
diversify our regional econo-
my, train workers for jobs in
growing local industries and
more, and you can always learn
the latest at GulfCoastCF.org.
Right now, though, you have
a chance to help neighbors for
whom the most basic needs are
not being met. You can invest
directly in our community's
future, its kids. You can feed
hungry children and families.
Please help.

dent and CEO of Gulf Coast
Community Foundation.


I LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


I am one of
those receiving
much-needed help


Editor:
I'm prompted to write after
reading an article written by
Tom Lyons in the Thursday,
April 10, edition of the Herald-
Tribune Venice section,
"Shelter should be part of the
solution."
"There are homeless and
nonhomeless people (like that)
who should inspire nothing
but compassion, and many
quietly get help from various
agencies without ever being
literally out on the street."
I, sir, am one of the many-
quietly receiving help from the
nonprofit organization Venice
Health Services of the Senior
Friendship Centers, located at
2350 Scenic Drive.
I've grappled with job
displacement, loss of health
insurance, inability to acquire
affordable health insurance
and two disabling diseases
that require consistent medical
treatment, testing and expen-
sive prescription medicines.
Lois Marshal, the director of
Health Services; Stacey Ciejek,
a medical assistant; and Carol
Vadenais, the dental coordina-
tor, along with the small but
mighty staff of volunteer doc-
tors and professional medical
assistants, have compassion-
ately provided the resources,
as my life has transitioned to
present day.
In addition to medical assis-
tance, they've provided dental
care, arranged for specialists to
research foundation connec-
tions and filed paperwork to
Social Security on my behalf.
This is an open letter of
sincere gratitude to the Senior
Friendship Center Health
Services of Venice for their
commitment to someone
who couldn't otherwise afford
medical assistance. Thank you!
Would you please encour-
age your readers (who are


financially able) to

I am thoroughly im-
pressed with the position
your newspaper took in
the "Our View" opinion
piece onApril 19.
Well written! And quite
possibly the most cogent
pro-airport editorial I've
ever seen. To your point,
I have a cousin that uses
aircraft for his engineer-
ing business who recently
bought a second home on
South Nokomis Avenue,
mostly because he could
walk to and from his
aircraft at the airport.
It is the perfect winter
home for him and his wife
and it will soon be their
retirement residence.
They are solid citizens
who will bring value and
business to the com-
munity and the airport.
The article made my day.
Thank you.

Venice Band should
hold more concerts
Editor:
We are writing to tell
you how distressed
we are about the lack
of season tickets for
the 2014-15 Venice
Band Concert Series.
We have bought five
season tickets for our
family for many years.
(In fact, we bought
tickets 1-5 for the
2013-14 season.)
We have always en-
joyed the concerts very
much. Mr. Bill Millner
is to be commended on
the excellent shows he
produces.
We are among the
many very unfortu-
nate people who were
unable to buy season
tickets for the 2014-
15 season because
they sold out the first
afternoon they were
available.
We are very disap-
pointed that we will
not be able to attend


these concerts next
year. (We all know that
the individual tickets
that will be available
will also sell out very
rapidly.)
We suggest that the
band should consider
having two or more
performances of each
concert (like the Venice
Symphony does) so
that everyone who
wishes will be able to
enjoy these excellent
shows.

The U.S. must work
with U.N., not try
to go it alone

Editor:
A new poll released
this week by the Better
World Campaign has
found that even during
this polarizing political
time, there is one issue
that voters agree on:


the U.S. can't go it alone
to solve the world's
problems.
In fact, 86 percent of
American voters agree
that it's important for
the U.S. to maintain an
active role in the United
Nations. Additionally,
more than seven out of
10 Americans believe
that working through
the U.N. to resolve
international issues im-
proves America's image
around the world.
I'm one of them.
The U.S. has fallen
behind on its dues to
U.N. peacekeeping,
but over two thirds of
voters want the U.S. to
both pay what is already
owed and meet new
commitments in the
year to come.
The U.S. cannot bear
all the burden, and by
maintaining an active
and strong partnership
with the U.N., we won't
have to.

and that could impact
the health of a family

Henry said. "As for grad-
uation rates, our com-
munity understands the
link between education
and future health and
future success. The bet-
ter educated individuals
are, the more likely they
are to have better jobs,
earn more income, and
have more employment
options which also
translates to access to
health care and health
insurance."
Henry said the num-
ber of county residents
with insurance is still
not where he wants it.
"A big factor in that
is whether our state
decides to expand
Medicaid or not,"
he said. "But we will
always work to improve
access to health care
through our health
systems and through
community partners."

Sarasota County OKs $769K to promote tourism


By DREW WINCHESTER
STAFF WRITER

County commissioners
have approved using un-
spent funds and extra bed
tax dollars to promote
sports and arts events
throughout Sarasota
County, a decision that
will help, in part, to
showcase the upcoming
Olympic Pentathlon.
Commissioners
voted 3-2 on Wednesday,
with Joe Barbetta and
Christine Robinson
dissenting, to give the
$769,500 to Visit Sarasota
County, which said it
plans to funnel $50,000
to promote the 2014
Modern Pentathlon
World Cup Final and


$15,000 toward the
USA Ultimate Masters
and Grand Masters
Championships Ultimate
Frisbee events.
Tourist taxes typically
are generated through
hotel stays and other
vacation rentals.
Visit Sarasota County
President Virginia Haley
said the funds will be
used to "enhance the
summer," when the
events are planned to be
held. Funds also will be
used on TV advertising
for the county, along with
a redesign of its website,
among other items.
But while commis-
sioners spoke favorably
of the work done by
the Visit staff, some


wondered if the money
could be better spent by
directing it toward assets
that would attract new
tourist dollars, instead
of advertising what the
county already has.
Barbetta said the
money was a "windfall,"
and thought it could be
funneled toward new
projects like soccer and
lacrosse fields, a confer-
ence center or maybe
even new fairgrounds.
"Those kinds of
opportunities create
additional demand for
hotels and rental cars,"
Barbetta said. "The assets
create the great place
that we are, and we need
to expand those assets."
Robinson said she'd


like to see the Visit staff
focus more on promot-
ing the southern end of
the county, as Venice has
seen a spike in visitors.
Robinson also said that
the Visit Sarasota County
guide almost wholly
ignores North Port, but
that's because many of the
city's natural attractions
are inaccessible to visitors.
Barbetta added that
North Port could benefit
from equestrian-focused
facilities.
"When you open up
that guide, just about the
entire city of North Port
is not in there, because
we don't have access to
the public lands around
it," Robinson said.
The Modern


Pentathlon is an Olympic
sport that consists of
five events: 200-meter
indoor swimming,
fencing, equestrian
show jumping and a
combined final event of
laser pistol shooting and
a 3,200-meter (2-mile)
cross-country run.
The World Cup runs
from June 5-8 at the
Sarasota Polo Club and
Selby Aquatic Center in
Sarasota.
The Ultimate Frisbee
events are set for
July 18-20 at the Sarasota
Polo Club.
County Commission
Chair Charles Hines said
the pentathlon needs to
be promoted, but also
agreed with Barbetta that


the county might need to
look again at the funds
next year to see if they
can be used differently.
Hines said he'd like to see
the Visit staff show some
hard data that would
indicate the county is
getting a return on those
advertising dollars.
"At some point, there's
some diminishing
returns with the market
being saturated ... some
of these funds can be
used to benefit the
people who live here,"
Hines said.
With the increase, Visit
Sarasota County's budget
rises from $5,591,218 to
$6,360,718 for fiscal year
2014.

Council of the City of Venice, Florida will
hold a public hearing beginning at 9:00

the following proposed City Ordinance:
AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF

NANCE NO. 98-29, WHICH ADOPTED

MENT, BOTH OF WHICH WERE TO
REMOVE A PROVISION THAT
REQUIRED SPRINKLERS IN ALL
STRUCTURES; PROVIDING FOR CON-
FLICTS HEREWITH; PROVIDING FOR
SEVERABILITY; AND PROVIDING FOR

Purpose: The fire sprinkler requirement
was included as part of the pre-annexa-
tion agreement to protect planned com-
mercial property development at that site

code. The pre-annexation agreement also
was established prior to the construction
of fire station 3. The fire code does not
require fire sprinkler protection of single
family homes that are now included in the
planned development of this property.
Amending the agreement to remove the
mandated fire sprinkler requirement does
not lessen the fire safety as the develop-
er agrees to follow the current fire code
in all planned development.

DRAFT FOCUSED ENVIRONMENTAL
ASSESSMENT
PUBLIC WORKSHOP
APRIL 30, 2014
VENICE MUNICIPAL AIRPORT
RUNWAY 13-31 RUNWAY
PROTECTION ZONE PROJECT
VENICE, FLORIDA
The City of Venice has prepared a Draft
Focused Environmental Assessment (EA)
pursuant to the National Environmental
Policy Act (NEPA) for a proposed project
to improve Runway 13-31's Runway Pro-
tection Zone (RPZ) at the Venice Municipal
Airport (Airport), Venice, Florida. The City
of Venice is the owner and operator of the
Airport.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Airport's primary runway, Runway 13-
31, does not fully comply with Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA) standards
for Runway Protection Zones (RPZs). The
RPZ is a trapezoidal area at ground level
beyond a runway's ends. The RPZ's func-
tion is to enhance the safety and protec-
tion of people and property on the


ground. The existing RPZ includes twen-
ty-six residential parcels. With the pro-
posed project, only two residential
parcels will remain within the RPZ.
The City is proposing to improve the Run-
way 13-31 RPZs to the extent practicable
in order to more fully meet FAA stan-
dards. The Proposed Project includes
adding 727 feet to the southeast end of
Runway 13-31; construction of a 312
foot long x 150 foot wide Engineered
Materials Arresting System (EMAS) to the
southeast end of Runway 13-31; adding
727 feet to parallel Taxiway D; and clear-
ing of obstructions (trees) that penetrate
the standard Threshold Siting Surfaces at
the southeast and northwest end of Run-
way 13-31. The published pavement
length of Runway 13-31 will be 5,727
feet. However, with the establishment of
declared distances in both directions Run-
way 13-31's operational length remains at
5,000 feet.
PUBLIC COMMENT AND PUBLIC WORK-
SHOP NOTICE:
Public agencies and interested members
of the public may review and comment on
the Draft Focused EA for 30 days

The 51-unit family housing
portion of the project remains in
limbo. It was denied funding in
the 2014 cycle and can't apply
until the next one, in January.
There's no guarantee of funding,
just better or worse odds,
depending on how many other
projects apply for the limited
pool of money.
Site prep was completed
while the work was being done
for Venetian Walk, but there's
nothing more to do without an
infusion of funds.


"The cooperation in all
aspects and the product
that has been produced,
I think, is a benefit to the
city and benefit for years
to come," McKeon said.
"It's great to see the
fruit of many years of
effort to make airport
safety improvements."
Even though a lot of
money was spent, no city
tax dollars were used.

HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL



Venice takes second straight district title


BY SCOTT LOCKWOOD
SPORTS EDITOR
Coming into Thursday
night's Class 6A-District
11 championship game,
Port Charlotte head
coach Bryan Beisner said
he knew his team had
to play a perfect game
to deny the host Venice
Indians their second
consecutive district title.
Unfortunately for
the Pirates, they were
anything but perfect,
committing five errors
and four balks in their
4-0 loss to the Indians at
Venice High School.
"We just kind of shot
ourselves in the foot
and made way too many
errors tonight," Beisner
said.
Port Charlotte pitcher
Donovan Petery was
called for two balks in
the bottom of the first
inning, one of which let
Dalton Guthrie, who had
advanced to third base
thanks to some small-
ball work by his team-
mates, take a stroll across
the plate. Rhett Dinka's
single to left sent Scott
DuBrule in for another
run. Dinka moved to sec-
ond on Petery's second
balk of the inning, but
would be stranded there
to end the inning.
At the top of the next
inning, Venice's Brent
Killiam was hit by a pitch
and moved to second
when umpires called
Petery for another balk.
Killiam scored when a fly
ball to left was dropped
by Pirates' left fielder
Taylor Severson.
Despite the four
early balks, Petery settled
down over the course of
the next several innings

and retired several Venice
hitters on fly balls and
short grounders. Venice
pitcher Kade Hunkapiller
was doing the exact same
thing on the other side,
turning the game into
a fast-moving pitcher's
duel.
Port Charlotte's Vince
Farragio hit a one-out
double in the top of the
fifth and reached second
on the play on a throwing
error. He reached third
when Kelvin Soto singled
to left.
Soto's hit forced
Venice head coach
Craig Faulkner to pull
Hunkapiller and replace
him with lefty reliever
Ryan Ahern. The move
was designed so Ahern
would face the Florida
State-bound Petery at the
plate. Ahern threw noth-
ing but sliders at Petery,
eventually striking him
out on five pitches.
"I felt really good
and really focused up
there," Ahern said as he
was clutching both the
district championship
trophy and the game


ball presented to him
by Faulkner. "I felt like
my slider was working
in the bullpen and I felt
confident throwing it
to the lefty. You have to
give him (Petery) credit
too because he's a great
hitter."
Faulkner said that
having Ahern ready for
that situation was part of
the Indians' game plan
coming in.
"Their first hitter is the
one that could hurt you
the most and he had to
be ready for that situa-
tion," Faulkner said.
Port Charlotte commit-
ted three of its five errors
in the top of the sixth,
allowing the final Venice
run to score. Indians
reliever Ryan Miller
struck out two of the four
hitters he faced in the
seventh to end the game.
"Petery did a good
job pitching and he
kept them off balance,"
Beisner said. "We had
a few hits in there but
we just couldn't get the
timely ones when we
needed them. We'll keep

grinding, and hopefully
we'll come back here in a
couple of weeks and play
these guys again."
Soto finished with two
hits for Port Charlotte,
which will travel to
District 12 champion
Estero on Thursday.
Hunkapiller threw 4 2/3
shutout innings, allowing
four hits while striking
out five and hitting two
Pirate hitters.
Venice's defense of
its back-to-back state
championships resumes
Thursday when the
Indians host Naples at
7 p.m. Faulkner said that
past experience will help
his team moving forward
into the Regionals.
"It's difficult to win a
district championship
on the Gulf Coast of
Florida," Faulkner said.
"There's a lot of great

very fortunate and we've

past anybody. I can
guarantee you we'll be

HIGH SCHOOL SOFTBALL



Lloyd hits game-winning birthday homer


By NATHAN COWAN
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Venice sophomore des-
ignated player McKenna
Lloyd could only sit and
watch as the Naples High
Golden Eagles tied the
game at five in the top of
the fifth inning. Knowing
she had to lead off the
bottom of the inning,
she anxiously awaited
her turn.
The wait turned out to
be well worth it, as Lloyd
took the first pitch of
the inning from Hailey
Pinterich and drove it
to center field for a solo
home run. The Indians
made the run stand up
and advanced to the
Class 6A-Region 4 semifi-
nals with a 6-5 victory.
"When I watched that
inning, I knew I had to
come through for my
team," Lloyd said. "That's
one of the big reasons I
play softball, to score the
winning run. That feeling
is indescribable."
"I knew that she hit
the ball hard enough but
I wasn't sure if she hit it
high enough to get over


the fence," Indians coach
Larry Sandburg said. "It
was an unbelievable hit."
Senior pitcher Nikkie
Kovalsky started the
game in her normal
dominant fashion: She
retired the first nine
batters for Naples while
striking out seven.
"We spent time
practicing hitting
low-and-away pitches,"
Naples coach Robert
lamurri said. "She went
up on us and stayed up.
The umpire was calling it
and she did a good job of
getting her pitches."
The Venice offense
continued to be plagued
by leaving runners on
base. Katelin Davis led
off the first inning with a
single but was stranded
at second base. In the
second the Indians had
runners on second and
third with no outs thanks
to a walk to Lloyd and a
double by freshman third
baseman Elsie Rivera.
However, the next three
batters went down in
order to keep the game
scoreless.
Venice scored five runs


in the bottom of the
third. Davis doubled to
left and senior catcher
Taylor Baker reached on
an error. Junior shortstop
Carly Rosa singled to
load the bases.
Kovalsky singled
to drive in Davis and
Loyd reached on an
error that drove in Haley
Hendricks, who was
running for Baker. Rivera
singled to drive in Rosa
and Corryne Martin,
who was running for
Kovalsky, scored on a
Gabby Dugan fielder's
choice. Rivera scored
when senior first base-
man Taylor Constantino
reached on an error.
"We gave them two
extra base runners and
they made us pay,"
lamurri said. "That's
what good teams do
to you. They take
advantage."
The Golden Eagles
battled back in the fifth.
Ellie Rushing opened the
inning by reaching on an
error. Hali Delashment
followed with a walk,
with Lauren Mayor's
double to left to driving
in Rushing. Delashment
scored on a ground out
by Mackenzie Black.
Brooke Ford followed
with a ground out to
score Mayor. Cayla
Strickland singled and
Julia Hancock walked
to extend the inning.
Pinterich then doubled
deep to right to score
both Strickland and
Hancock and tie the
game at five.
"We knew they
wouldn't quit," Sandburg
said. "No team quits

"Our girls made adjust-
ments to stay back on

situation you're not used
to and you have to make
adjustments."

Sinibaldi joins UNC-Charlotte volleyball staff


By SCOTT LOCKWOOD
SPORTS EDITOR

The University of North
Carolina-Charlotte has
added former Venice High
School volleyball player
Margeaux Sinibaldi as
an assistant coach in the
Charlotte 49ers volleyball
program.
Sinibaldi was a four-
year starter at libero for
Venice from 2000 to 2003
and played collegiately at
Division II power Tampa.
In addition to winning
a national title in 2006,
she is a two-time AVCA
All-American as well
as an ESPN Academic
All-American the first
libero player to ever earn
All-American honors.
"Volleyball has always
been my passion,"
Sinibaldi said. "I've
coached high school
volleyball four years and


I decided I wanted to get
into college coaching.
This is just a really great
opportunity
for me to
get a great
start into
m. coaching."
For the
past three
years
SINIBALDI Sinibaldi
was
the head coach at
Bloomingdale High
School in Valrico. She
led the Bulls to the Elite
Eight of the FHSAA state
playoffs last year. Besides
Bloomingdale, Sinibaldi
led a pair of club teams
to top state tourna-
ment finishes with the
Tampa United Volleyball
Academy.
"We are glad Margeaux
decided to join our
program," Charlotte head
coach Gokhan Yilmaz


said in a statement
provided by the school.
"I thought we signed
our first impact recruit
when (assistant coach)
Nicole Miller decided to
join us back in February.
Margeaux established
herself as the best can-
didate due to her stellar
playing career with her
All-American selections,
National Championship
at the University of
Tampa, her willingness
to learn and attention to
detail. She will work with
our passers and defend-
ers and take an extensive
role in day to day opera-
tions and recruiting."
Sinibaldi goes to
Charlotte after a brief
stint as a volunteer
assistant coach at Boston
College. Yilmaz, who is
taking over the UNC-
Charlotte program after
serving as an assistant


coach at Florida State,
said he was impressed
by how Sinibaldi led
Bloomingdale's turn-
around and also cited
her experience in coach-
ing club volleyball as
positives.
"She has also coached
for Tampa United, which
is one of the premier
clubs in the Southeast,"
Yilmaz said. "It is also
speaks very highly of
Margeaux that she left
her full-time position to
become the volunteer as-
sistant at Boston College
so she can start her
college coaching career.
"Everyone we talked to
had great things to say
about Margeaux. I believe
that having Margeaux,
along with Nicole Miller,
makes a diverse and
complete coaching staff.
We are looking forward to
grow as a staff and move


the Charlotte volleyball
program forward."
A 2008 graduate of
the University of Tampa,
Sinibaldi helped lead
the Spartans to a 2006
National Championship
and was named to the
championship's all-tour-
nament team. She also
racked up awards as
a four-time AVCA all-
south region performer
gaining recognition
in the Sunshine State
Conference as a three-
time first team all-con-
ference player. Sinibaldi
graduated magna cum
laude with a bachelor of
arts in English.
Sinibaldi said she's
ready for the new
challenge.
"The school is beautiful
and the staff I'm working
with is amazing," she
said. "I think the most
exciting part of the


whole thing is the idea of
rebuilding the program.
The people that are
there are excited and
passionate about making
UNC-Charlotte into a
winning program. That's
exciting to be around
and I'm looking forward
to learning from a very
successful coach."
Venice volleyball head
coach Brian Wheatley
said that Sinibaldi is one
of the most intense play-
ers that he's ever coached,
which should follow her
"Good things are
going to happen for her,"
Wheatley said. "She's a
phenomenal coach be-
cause she's still a student
of the game. She's very
tough on herself and very
disciplined. She'll also be
a great recruiter for that
program."

Tim Allan plays banjo and sings with friends on the lanai of his South Venice
home.


By BOB BYLER
GUEST WRITER
"Musical variety is what
I like," said Venice winter
resident Tim Allan, a Canadian
who has fans internationally
for concerts on banjo, guitar,
mandolin and ukulele and his
rich baritone vocals.
He responds quickly to re-
quests for tunes from classic,
popular, jazz and ragtime
to country and singalong
favorites.
"I know of no musician
today who possesses a broader
repertoire or who uses his
musical knowledge to better
advantage," a leading music
critic wrote about Allan.
The Toronto native was
inducted into the Banjo Hall
of Fame in Oklahoma in 2002.
He also won North American
banjo competitions in Canada
in 1977 and 1978, with virtu-
oso versions of the classical
"Poet and Peasant Overture"
and "William Tell Overture."
Allan has performed on
many Florida-based cruises
and in clubs, concert venues
and private parties from
Sarasota to Naples on the
Suncoast and as far west as
Panama City and as far east
as Miami. He headlined the
fifth annual Punta Gorda
Banjo Bash in February and
will return next year followed
by a concert at Lemon Bay
Playhouse in Englewood.
Locally, he entertained at
Pelican Pointe, the Plantation,
Manasota Beach Club and

Sarasota's Field Club.
His shows offer an excursion
through America's musical
heritage. Allan celebrates that
heritage in a CD, "Looking
Back." It features 100 top
tunes in decades from 1850s
to 1970s. Some sample tunes
are "Oh Susanna," "Beautiful
Dreamer," "Red River Valley,"
"Maple Leaf Rag," "You Are
My Sunshine," "Moon River,"
"Proud Mary" and "Dueling
Banjos."
Other CDs featuring him
on love songs, popular, jazz
and classic tunes are sold at
concerts, by mail and online at
TimAllan.com. The website
also offers instructional books
and CDs, show photos, links
to YouTube videos and reports
on his remarkable career.
After a 1995 New Year's Eve
gig at the Arcade Theater
in Fort Myers, Allan visited


Venice and discovered "the
charm of old Florida." He was
also lured by its big musical
community and supportive
fans.
He and his wife, Nida, came
yearly and in 1999, bought a
small home in Venice. They
upgraded to a lakeside house
in South Venice last year and
host jam sessions on the lanai.
Nida is also musical, knows
many tunes and is praised by
Tim as a "driving force" in his
career.
Some of his gigs have con-
tinued for years. He performed
at Snook Haven from 1997 to
2007 and has performed annu-
ally on JazzSea cruises out
of Florida to the Caribbean
since 2004. On board, he
presents a solo show and
also conducts a stage full of

Going 'green' to South Venice Fitness Center


South Venice Fitness Center
(SVFC) is housed in the bright
"green" building at 2203 S.
Tamiami Trail, south of the
Galleria shopping center at
the intersection of U.S. 41 and
Alligator Drive in Venice.
That color of green is a real
eye-catcher. After visiting with
one of the owners, I found that
stopping in was well worth the
time.
The scent of the black
rubber gym flooring and all
the exercise equipment let me
know immediately exercise is
the name of the game at this
location. The cushioned floor


makes it easier on weightlift-
ers and everyone who exer-
cises there, according to Lyn
Enright, co-owner.
While she keeps hours at
SVFC, Enright works between
this business and Dance
Dynasty dance studio in
Sarasota, where she teaches
ballroom dancing. Both
businesses offer people a way
to keep in shape.
"I like these businesses
because they are happy, active
businesses," she said.
She called SVFC just a "little
neighborhood gym ... a place
where, like the 'Cheers' song,
everybody knows your name,"
but its scope is anything but
small.
This 8,000-square-foot
building (5,000 square feet of
usable space) has one large
exercise room and two back
rooms, one for heavy lifting,
the other for Silver Sneaker
classes (for senior citizens)
and dance classes. There are
two locker rooms, one for
men, one for women.


According to
SouthVeniceFitness.
com, there are more than
100 pieces of equipment
in the fully equipped gym,
including Cybex treadmills,
Reflex weight machines and
Hampton dumbbells. There is
a private consultation room to
meet with clients and discuss
their goals privately. Also, the
business carries nutritional
and weightlifting supplements
to help clients step up their
workout.
While offering the right tools
- equipment and supplies -
for a full workout experience
is important, it usually comes
down to the people to make
a gym successful, and these
people seem to have it all
together.

Englewood kids challenged Venice in first regatta


Diana
Harris


After six months
of weekend lessons
and practice sessions
with Hast Hoadley, the
Englewood Pram Fleet
Kids were ready to make
their public debut.
It was a Saturday after-
noon, Dec. 3, 1955. The
local Pram Association
was about to have its
first regatta in Lemon
Bay. The old wooden
bridge, half of which
still remains as the Bill
Anger Fishing Pier, was
lined with locals, tourists
and visitors fromVenice.
The bridge could serve
as the viewing platform
since the Intracoastal
Waterway had not yet
arrived in Lemon Bay.
Englewood had invited
the Venice Pram Fleet to
participate and it had
accepted.
The town wasn't very
big in those days, so this
was the kind of charming
small-town story that
made front page head-
lines in the Englewood
Herald newspaper:
"Venice accepts invi-
tation!" The town had
been abuzz for weeks
over the up-and-coming
regatta. There was much


discussion over how the
local kids would perform
since the Venice fleet was
more experienced.
Bob Johnson remem-
bered the Pram Fleet
well. Johnson said: "Hast
Hoadley had heard about
the sailing program for
kids the Optimist Club
sponsored. We thought
Englewood kids would
have fun with the pro-
gram. After all, they were
already comfortable
around the water, had
grown up swimming,
boating and fishing.
"Hoadley was a perfect
teacher for the kids;
he was a real sailor.
There were quite a few
of us around here then
that did a lot of serious
sailing.
"Hoadley had a nice
schooner he kept up in
Venice. He had won a
trophy in a race he did
from St. Pete to Havana
in 1955. As a matter of
fact, a group of us from
Englewood John Bass,
myself, Sutton, Johnson,
who owned the lumber
yard, and a couple of
others sailed to Havana
with Hoadley on that
same boat in 1957."
Optimist International
was founded in 1919.
Its purpose was to work
with young people. It
sponsored and instigated
many programs, as it still
does today. Its motto was
"Bringing out the best in
kids."
Johnson said:


'Although there was
not an Optimist Club in
Englewood, the nearest
was Venice. They were
the official sponsor of
Lemon Bay's fleet. At
the time, they had pram
fleets all over the county."
In those days Bob
Johnson's Boat Building
and Cabinet Shop was
well known in the area.
He committed to build-
ing the mini-sailboats for
the newly formed group.
"I think that first year I
built more than 50 prams
- of course, a lot were
for other groups. Venice
had a fleet, Punta Gorda,
Clearwater. I built 'em
at my house, I could
deliver 'em but some
people would come and
get them and stick 'em in
their rumble seats, which
a lot of cars still had
then."
"I got the plans from
the Optimist Club. The
prams were 8 feet long,"
said Johnson, "They had
a blunt end, a center
board, a rudder and a
mast we called a sprits
or a spritsail. In other
words, the sail is held
up with a little pole and
you lashed it on to the
bottom of the mast to
hold it up. It was an easy
rig for the kids. The idea
was one person to a boat.
It was a nice little boat to
sail, really.
"I had a sail maker up
in Sarasota. I sold those
little boats, including the
sail unpainted, for $65. I


didn't make any money. I
enjoyed doing it.
"Here's the way it
worked: I built 'em, and
then a local business or
sponsor would buy 'em,
donate them to the sail-
ing club. Like RoyWalton
and his wife, Kewpie
Doll, they owned the
Poinciana Apartments
on South McCall Road.
The kids would help
paint them. Sometimes
the business would paint
their name on the boat.
The kids didn't have to
put out any money at all.
"The name was always
a bit of a mystery to us.
The pram was a class of
sailboat small, sturdy,
basic, a learner type of
boat designed by the


Optimist Club. I think
'pram' is a British word
used for a tender.
"Safety was the thing
we preached more than
anything. Be cautious,
study the situation before
you jump in. I had a little
5-horsepower outboard
and I would stay out
there with the kids while
they were sailing in case
something happened.
But we never had any
accidents."
The regatta day turned
out to be perfect sun-
ny with just the right
amount of wind. It was
a thrilling sight indeed
to see the mini-sized
white sails propelling
the one-man prams
across the blue waters of


Lemon Bay. Most viewers
had never seen a pram
race before and were
astonished at the skill of
the young captains of the
crafts who ranged in age
from 8 to 14.
Fifty-nine years ago,
the day of Englewood's
first regatta, when the
scores were tallied up,
the more experienced
Venice fleet won by
only two points. The
Englewood Pram Fleet
Kids, all 15 of them
- half girls, half boys -
were ecstatic and they
had the admiration of the
whole town.

a design fed to it by a computer. Don Musilli, president of
the Englewood Incubation Center, plans to demonstrate 3-D
printing at the Earth Day Festival 2014.


like an alien soundtrack
from a '50s sci-fi film.
One of Musilli's goals is
to introduce older adults
to the technology, making
3-D printers less alien or
intimidating to them.
"We want to train peo-
ple to design on software,
and then produce it on
(the 3-D printer)," Musilli
said.
High school students,
such as those at North
Port High School, are
working with 3-D printing
and design, Musilli said.
Charlotte County school
spokesman Mike Riley
said Charlotte schools
have requested 3-D
printers, but at this time
no funding is available to
purchase them.
The plastic for the
MakerBot Replicator is
ecologically friendly and
recyclable, made from
a corn oil base. Other
3-D printers can create
prototypes from other


materials, Musilli said.
For the Earth Day festiv-
ities, he hopes to have a
more industrial version
available.
"What this takes us
from simple devices,
almost an Erector Set-
type design," Musilli said.
"I've been looking at 3-D
printers for a couple of
years. One of the things
we were waiting for was
for them to come down in
price, but also for them to
become user-friendly."
The plastic itself is
heated to 232 degrees
centigrade and then fed
through what looks like
a fountain-pen point,
building thin layer by
thin layer the design
transmitted to it through
computer software.
In the near future
entrepreneurs, engineers,
inventors or designers
will be able to produce
prototypes much more
economically.

"The other good thing
is that the technology
is pretty much with us,"
Musilli said. "The tech-
nology is moving so fast."
Besides Musilli's 3-D
printing demonstration,
the Englewood Earth
Day Festival will include
eco-friendly kids crafts,
raffles, yoga and dance,
live music, raffles, arts
and crafts, healthy "fun"
foods and other activities.

Mia Maria Elvira
Georges Louis DeCoene-
Vermonte Noto Nuzzi
Volino Schneider insists
I include one thing in
her profile:
"Just write I don't have
an accent."
It is not true. She does.
Her accent is Flemish,
and it's slight, rubbed
away by five-plus
decades in the United
States and the million
miles she's traveled
around the globe.
And it gets good
use: Mia is an ener-
getic conversationalist
whose husband (one
of four) once dubbed
her "Moto," as in
"Motor-Mouth."
Mia now goes by


"Mama Mia." She grew
up outside Antwerp,
Belgium, and stud-
ied on scholarship
at Northwestern
University. Then back
to Belgium, back here,
back to Belgium, etc.,
until she finally moved
here for good.
More or less.
Mia, 70, is a world-
class globetrotter. She
has flown well over
a million miles. She's
been on 62 cruises,
three of them round-
the-world cruises. Stood
on all seven continents.
Visited 125 countries.
Bungee-jumped in New
Zealand, tandem-para-
chuted in Hawaii. Eaten
guinea pig, which she
liked very much, and
monkey brains not so
much.
"My father told us
we should never take
travel as a luxury but an
education, and I believe
he was right," she says
when we meet at her
home in Overbrook
Gardens in Englewood.


Mia's entrance hall
walls are covered with
native wooden masks
from the places she's vis-
ited: Zaire, New Guinea,
Colombia, Japan,
Singapore, Haiti, Brazil
and on and on. So many
large-format, 100-page
photo albums fill her
living room bookshelves
she has to store the run-
over elsewhere.
"I can look at an
album, I can take it
down and I'm back in
that year, I'm back in
that story," she says.
"I am very lucky about
all the things I've seen
and done. We were very
adventurous."
The "we" Mia refers
to time and again -
is her fourth husband,
Robert Schneider. For
30 years, he was the
low-key "Papa" to her
effusive "Mama."
Mama met Papa at a
divorced singles meeting
in Port Charlotte, where
he stepped on her toes
while dancing and soon
after walked off with her


heart. They lived in sin
for awhile "It was so
much fun," she says -
then married on Oct. 15,
1983. Their home base
was Englewood, but
their life was on the
road, in the air, aboard
ships traveling the
globe.
"Papa and I had 85
honeymoons," she says.
"We did so much
together just a really,
really unique life."
Mia is gregarious. She
laughs loudly, easily and
frequently, but her eyes
get glassy when the con-
versation snakes back
- as it does repeatedly
- to Robert.
"I kissed a lot of frogs
before I kissed my
prince," she says.
Mia now sleeps
beneath a quilted bed-
spread made of Papa's
"naughty" T-shirts,
which he began buying
on one of their early
trips. He ended up with
300. On one wall of their
home hangs another
ribald-T quilt a


memory wall of sorts.
They still make Mia
laugh loudly.
Robert Schneider
was struck and killed
in October 2011 while
riding his Harley
home from Sarasota to
Englewood. His widow
misses him deeply and
has no plans to travel
anymore.
Instead, Mia is writing
a memoir, titled, "My
Life with Papa." She's
typed 412 pages so far.
"I'm only on 2004 and
my girlfriend is starting
to call me Tolstoy," Mia
laughs.
"Everybody who knew
Papa, they love him,"
she adds, her accent
oozing a little.
"But, you know, I have
memories enough for
four lifetimes, we did so
much together."

What


do you do


What do you do when you realize that
most of what you were told by your Sunday
school teachers, pastors and in my case
- your theological school professors won't
stand up to careful historical criticism and
analysis?
What remains is Jesus' wonderful vision
of the Kingdom of God he saw emerging in
the corners of the over-arching tyranny of
Rome: the empire of real life vs. the empire
of Caesar.
It is spread out upon the earth, the Gospel
of Thomas has him say, and men do not see
it. His parables and aphorisms consistently
undercut the lockstep of the hierarchical
authority of Rome, as well as the religious
formalism of the Jewish Temple.
One of the most powerful images that
emerges is the "open table," from which no
one is excluded. As carried out in the Jesus
Movement communities, there is neither
Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor
female, rich nor poor. All are welcome at the
table.
His followers went on to try to make sense
of his teaching and his death at the hands
of Rome using the mythic images of their
day. In their later forms those images may
challenge the world view of moderns. Few
of us still live in the three-storied universe,
with a separate spiritual realm where the
laws of physics don't apply.
But his vision of how the world could be,
and at times already is, remains challenging
whatever one makes of the ancient mythic
images.
The oldest layers of the tradition that
we have the teachings of Jesus used by
Matthew and Luke (referred to by scholars
as "Q") and the Gospel of Thomas have
no references to his death or bodily resur-
rection. Those ideas came later.
Even St. Paul's letters, written about
20 years after his death, say he was "raised,"
but understand his appearances as like
Paul's on the road to Damascus
(I Corinthians 15). Even the Gospel of Mark
ends with the women finding his tomb
empty, as if this were not a well-known
thing in 70 A.D., when Mark was written.
So, what does one do, having to let go of
most of the creed, the whole atonement and
salvation myth and a Jesus who was God
pretending to be human?
One can abandon the faith, as many have.
One can hang around, as my father said,
"Because these are my people." They can
fall silent when the creed is recited, but
find themselves responding to the Good
Samaritan teaching; even the strange expe-
rience of being loved by the enemy.
One can focus on the ancient layer of the
heritage and go to work on creating the be-
loved community where no one is excluded.
But can we recreate a language of faith
in images that fit in the modern world? Not
because the myths were wrong, but because
they have been outgrown?
The insight of that first-century Rabbi is
still true: The kingdom of full aliveness is
spread out upon the earth and men do not
see it. Yet. But maybe we're beginning to.

The Rev. Mike Young is the interim
minister of the Unitarian Universalist
Congregation of Venice.

Sasha needs a good friend

Ever feel like you really need a friend? Sasha is in that position now.
Through no fault of her own, she has been bounced around quite a
bit. So far she has lived just with adults. She is housebroken and likes
to ride in the car. She can be a little cautious with new people but
warms up quickly. She is a shepherd/retriever mix with a full-grown
weight of 51 pounds. What she wants most is to find her forever
home with consistent and loving care. When that happens, she will
be a happy, playful and devoted companion. You can find Sasha at
Suncoast Humane Society at 6781 San Casa Drive, Englewood. To
see if Sasha is still available for adoption, call 941-474-7884 or visit:

Travel tip No. 1: Use an agent


ByCATHI SHEARER
LOCAL GUEST WRITER
Your travel agent can be
your best friend when you
plan your next vacation.
Can you say the same thing
about your computer?
Nowadays, people find it
very easy to book their travel
themselves online. What
they don't realize is that
if they book with a travel
agent instead of just doing
it themselves, they have an
extra pair of eyes watching
their reservation, making
sure that everything goes
perfectly.
People sometimes think
they can get a better price
on their vacation doing it
themselves online. Nothing
could be further from the
truth. Travel agents spend
hours looking and checking
prices for their clients. But
most of all, they make sure


COURTESY RENDERING
Whether it's a short getaway to
the islands or a cruise on Royal
Caribbean's new Anthem of the Sea,
expected to launch in England in
2015, booking through your travel
agent is simpler and probably
cheaper than doing it yourself, and
comes with other perks as well.

their clients get the best
vacation for the price. Cheap
is not always the best in the
long run.
A travel agent is someone
who can be there for you
to take care of all the little
things that you forget or

You can spend your valuable time making your own arrangements online
or turn your vacation plans over to a travel agent, who can handle all the


details and probably save you money.
don't even know about.
When something goes
seriously wrong, it is great to
have a live person to talk to
instead of a recording.
So, the next time you are
planning a vacation, give a
travel agency a chance to


show you just what it can do
for you.

Not all pet sitters are created
equal. When searching for
your pet sitter, it is vital you
find a professional. Making


sure your sitter is insured
and bonded is essential to
the well-being of your home
and possessions as well as the
direct care of your pet.
Interview multiple sitters to
make the best fit. Develop a list
of questions to ask potential
sitters before they arrive for the
interview, to make sure you
have not forgotten anything
once the interview begins.
Always ask your sitter to
provide you with references
as well as contact infor-
mation for a client or two
whom you can contact to
ensure their happiness with

These questions will help you
make a decision.
Once you have hired a
sitter, communication is key.
The more information your
sitter is given, the better the
relationship becomes.
Does your pet have a
certain route it likes to take
during walks? Does your pet
have any fears or phobias
- perhaps a fear of thun-
derstorms, or a certain child
down the road?
Your pet sitter should have
you sign a veterinary release
form giving permission
to have your pet treated if

Prepare your sitter by
communicating all your

and circuit boxes. Make sure
your sitter has all the num-

cians, such as your plumber,
your heating and air condi-

electrician. If your home has

Before you head out the
door, have an extra key made

you test the key. It is also a
good idea to have another

Once all of these things
have been done, you can
relax and have a great vaca-

your home will be in very
capable hands.

Sell your valuables with confidence


By EVAN DUKE
LOCAL GUEST WRITER
Downsizing, financial
difficulties or the loss of
a spouse or family mem-
ber are three of the main
reasons people both young
and old find themselves
liquidating their valuables.
As we all know, once we
start cleaning out the house
we find "treasures" that we
forgot or didn't even know
we had. "Where did this
come from and why did I
save it?" are two questions
we all have asked ourselves
at one time or another.
Other common questions
can include: How do I know
if this is something that
is valuable or if it is junk?
How do I get rid of it? Who
will buy it? What will they
do with it?
There are many things to


consider when selling your
valuables or in many cas-
es, your "not so valuables."
But remember the old
adage, "One person's junk is
another person's treasure."
A majority of the time this
is very true. For many items
there is a buyer; finding
that buyer is sometimes the
hardest part.
Here are some recom-
mendations when you're
considering selling your
items of value:
Deal with someone who
has roots in your area. If
someone has a long-stand-
ing good reputation and
has been operating in town
for a number of years, it
is apparent that they are
trustworthy and on the up
and up. This is not to say
that newcomers are not
doing a fair and honest
business, but do yourself a

to say he is unsure exactly
what you might have. With
the incalculable number
of things in the world, it is
impossible for someone to
be an expert in everything.
A lot of buyers have a
specialty or specialties that
they prefer and may even
be considered experts in,
but it is impossible to know
everything about every-
thing. Some buyers will
admit this, others will not.
Realize that the best person
to deal with is the one who
admits that he is unsure but
has an arsenal of experts in
the wings that he can refer
to at anytime.
Deal with someone you
feel comfortable with. Does
the person you are consid-
ering working with make
you feel at ease or does he
make your skin crawl? Is he
helpful or does he seem to
think he's doing you a favor
by helping you? This is


where your gut is generally
the best indicator.
Selling valuables can be
emotional, but remember,
this is business. While
buyers won't pay for senti-
mental value, they should
realize that some things
are hard to let go. What you
need to understand is that
buyer is entitled to make a
profit. He should offer a fair
price, but one that is good
for both of you.
Think about it like this:
You have an antique pocket
watch that has a retail value
of $100 and the dealer offers
you $65. Don't think he's
cheating you. Think about
all of the factors that go into
his getting that $100 at retail.
People are not lined
up out the door looking
for many of these old or
antique items. It takes the
right person, and in most
cases it takes time. Yes, the
dealer may find that person
tomorrow, but he might find
him 30 years from now. You

must be sensitive to that
just as he has been sensi-
tive to you. It is a two-way
street. As my dad always
told me, "the deal has to be
good for everyone."
Using these guidelines I'm
confident you will have a
great selling experience and
will also get the most you


can out of your valuables.

It's good to be grand


Grandparents do -

some parenting too L


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Some grandparents might
jokingly tell you that one
of the best parts of their
status is enjoying their
grandchildren and then
giving them back to their
parents. But sometimes,
grandparents can't send
their grandchildren back to
their parents, because they
all live in the same house.
Robin Evans spends all
her time with her grand-
children Pacey, 3, and
Alice, 2, because they and
their mother moved in
with Evans eight months
ago to escape an abusive
relationship.
Evans' situation as a
grandparent varies from
most because her daughter
works full time and Evans
takes care of the little ones,
while also working from
home.
"It's hard to be a full-time
grandma because it's a lot
like being a mother all over
again," she said. "There
are very few boundaries in
tight living quarters, and
you never have any alone
time."
She said she's not sure
how long her daughter
and the children will be
living with her, because her
daughter is just starting to
get back on her feet again.
But she also said she really
likes having them there
with her, and knows that as
long as they are, she doesn't
have to worry about them.
Besides, there are other
advantages.
"The greatest thing is to


hear Alice's tiny little voice
first thing in the morning
saying, 'Good morning,
Nanny,' or to feel those
little arms wrap around you
and look in those baby-blue
eyes," Evans said. "If I was
to give anyone advice about
their children moving back
home, it would be to set
rules and boundaries, and
to just love them."
Sallie Pisani lives with her
grandson, Isaiah, but she is
the one who moved to be
with him.
Her daughter and Isaiah
had lived with Pisani when
he was young, but then
Pisani married and moved
out of the country for a few
years with her husband.
While she was gone, her
daughter passed away,
and suddenly Isaiah, a
high-schooler, was left with
no family at home.
Pisani made the decision
to leave where she was
living and go to Isaiah.
"Kids need someone
who's in their corner ex-
clusively, and I think that's
the big difference for Zay,'
she said. "It's surprising
how many bureaucratic
matters can only be taken
care of by a legal guardian,
like drivers' permits and
school matters. I think he
really appreciates that I've
stepped in to help out."
For other grandparents
who face the difficult deci-
sion of taking over the role
of primary caregiver for a
grandchild, Pisani said she
thinks that it's very import-
ant for them to try to adopt
the child, if possible.
"The federal government

recognized about 15 years
ago that there were millions
of grandparents caring for
their grandkids and made
Social Security available
for those kids, if the grand-
parents could adopt them,"
she said. "It's worth the
trouble, and the funds last
until they are 18."
Grandparents don't have
to be living with their
grandchildren to make a
difference in their lives,
though. Even something as
simple as going to a grand-
child's baseball game or
telling your grandchildren
a story about when you
were a child can mean so
much to them. Kids love to
hear about the way things
were when their parents
and grandparents were
children and about how the
members of their family are
connected.
Above all, one thing is
certain: No matter how
much time they spend
together, grandparents
and their grandchildren
will always have a very

special bond. And it is one
in which, by building that
deep emotional connec-
tion, grandparents can
positively influence the
lives of their grandchildren.

grandparents that includes
activities you can do
with your grandchildren
and all kinds of information
about family, relationships
and the true role of

Bring the generations together at a reunion


FROM NEwsUSA

As families spread out
throughout the country,
it becomes more difficult
to get everyone together.
A family reunion gives
everyone a chance to meet,
catch-up and learn a little
more about their family
history.
Arranging a reunion can
be a huge undertaking, but
with a little planning, any-
one can pull off a successful
one.
Follow these tips to en-
sure a fun, rewarding family
reunion experience.
Create a family reunion
committee. You will need
at least two people to plan
location, food, activities,
budget, mailings, payments
and record-keeping. You
will need to start at least a
year ahead of time.
Pick a theme. Family


history themes, such as
celebrating an anniversary,
a birthday or a cultural
heritage a Mexican fiesta,
for example are always
popular.
Develop a budget.
Your budget will influence
the rest of your decisions
regarding housing, food and
activities. When in doubt,
plan for affordability.
Plan housing. If possi-
ble, choose a location that
offers a range of lodging
choices.
Keep the kids enter-
tained. Don't presume that
the grandparents or teen-
agers will act as babysitters
for the whole reunion.
Ask for volunteers, and
rotate babysitting duties.
Arranging competitions,
like three-legged and
costume races, will keep
kids happy.
Create activities. Adults

might be content to sit
around and chatter, but
integrating the whole

Think about next year's taxes today


By WILLIAM MEHSERLE
LOCAL GUEST COLUMNIST
Recently, I attended a
charity event in Atlanta that
was focused on providing
medical care and comfort
to very sick sometimes
terminally ill children.
Having volunteered with the
charity, I knew the merits of
the organization well, and
decided to invite several
friends and acquaintances
to the event.
The gala was to be held in
a gorgeous ballroom set to a
theme based on "The Great
Gatsby." Everyone was going
to be dressed in formal wear
and was expecting to have a
grand time.
In theory, the event was
poised to make quite a bit
of money for the cause.
Yet when the organizers
counted the money donated
that evening, they were
disappointed.
What occurred that
resulted in fewer donations
than before? Why did fewer
people come to this event,
which was at a better venue
than last year's event? Why
was the overall mood so
negative?
The committee members
began to dig for an answer,
and they didn't have to look
very far before they uncov-
ered something significant.
People had showed up
dressed to the nines with
their checkbooks in hand
and had been turned away.
Why? Because the valet had
informed them that parking
was no longer available.
Perhaps that is the reason
fewer people attended the
event than had RSVP'd.
When the committee
members dug more, they
learned the payment
processor for taking do-
nations by credit card was
down for an hour, but no


one had notified them so
they could make the guests
aware. Thus, the donations
that guests thought they
had made were not actually
made.
And perhaps most signif-
icant, the organizers had
scheduled the event on the
weekend of Spring Break for
the local schools a time
when many of the charity's
primary supporters were on
family vacations.
Why didn't the organizers
ensure that there would
be enough parking at
the venue for the guests?
How did something like a
broken payment processor
slip through the cracks?
Why was a date chosen
with a significant planning
conflict?
The answer was simple
- they had failed to orga-
nize. They were rushed in
planning the event and did
not have time to properly
consider all of the variables
that were essential for
success. But most of all,
they overlooked details that
would have given them
the best results from their

event.
As I think back to the
way this charity event was
planned, and ponder this
year's tax season being
behind us, I see striking
similarities.
The organizers of last
year's charity event did not
want to start the planning
for this year's event shortly
after it concluded, and
you probably don't want to
consider planning for next
year's taxes now. What re-
sults, in both cases, is a lack
of time to correctly plan
to achieve the best result.
You end up not having the
necessary time to make
relatively minor adjust-
ments to your investments
or consider how you should
take income from your IRA.
At the end of this year you
simply won't have the time,
or guidance, to carefully
consider the changes that


are available, and to make
those minor tweaks that
can result in significant tax
savings.
It is wise to make just a
couple of tweaks to your in-
come strategies early in the
year, to get organized now
and reap the benefits this
year and in years to come.
This April or May, consid-
er things like command
accounts, donor-advised
funds, qualified charitable
distributions from your IRA
and donating equities rath-
er than cash to a nonprofit.
It can be painful to think
about taxes in 2014 right
after you've conquered
2013's taxes, but a little
planning now can result
in benefits you won't have
time to consider later.

Put your face 'on' permanently


By SIMONE DIXON
LOCAL GUEST WRITER
When you look in the mir-
ror, do you like what you
see? The majority of women
would demur even the
most beautiful women look
at their reflection and see
flaws first.
As we age, our defini-
tion the sharpness of
our features softens and
blurs, and that's not due to
failing eyesight.
Well, you can do some-
thing about this. You
can have even, naturally
defined brows, beautifully
enhanced eyeliner and full,
rosy lips without looking
"made up."
Permanent makeup
has been around for
thousands of years. The
ancient Egyptians tattooed
makeup on themselves
using plant and animal
dyes and rudimentary
needles.
Happily, technology
has moved on since then.
Modern techniques are fast,
relatively painless, precise
and, most of all, natural
looking in the hands of an
expert.
But who do you
trust? Shockingly, here in
Florida anybody can set up
as a tattoo artist/perma-
nent makeup technician
without any formal train-
ing. You need to choose
carefully.
Here are some frequently
asked questions about
permanent makeup.
Who is it suitable
for? The highest percentage
of people having the treat-
ment would be in the
50-70 age group but it is
suitable for practically ev-
eryone, from a 16-year-old
who has a scar to be cam-
ouflaged to a 97-year-old


who could no longer see to
do her brows and lips, but
who still wished to look
groomed and pretty. Why
not?
It is ideal for those here
in Florida, with its high
temperatures and outdoor
lifestyle; those who suffer
from tremors or sight
problems; or those who are
just busy people.
Imagine looking immacu-
late all the time at
the beach, poolside, at
the gym, at the golf
course or even in the
supermarket.
No more frustration
at not being able to get
your brows even before
that special night out. No
more rushing to the powder
room to repair your lipstick
after eating, drinking or
kissing. No more panda
eyes to be embarrassed
about.
Are there any side ef-
fects? The side effects are
slight and short-lived a
little swelling and redness
that last between an hour
and a day.
Does it hurt? The sensi-
tivity felt during treatment
varies from person to
person, from a slight prick-
ling sensation to moderate
pain, but never so painful
that the treatment can't be
completed.
The preparation -
measuring, getting the
shape and color correct-
takes 15 minutes, followed
by the application of the
numbing cream, which is
left on the skin for 20 to
30 minutes. The time to
administer the treatment
itself is generally less than
10 minutes. The results last
up to five years.
Is it expensive? The

price charged for the pro-
cedure varies from area to 1
area and person to person,
depending on how much
micropigmentation is re-
quired. Generally, each area
treated costs $250-$350.
This price should
include at least one
follow-up treatment. i
Everyone's physiology is
different, and not all the
pigment stays in on the first
treatment.
It is also better to build
up the color and definition
over two treatments so
that the client, family and
friends adjust to the new
look gradually.

Have it made in the shade


... and rain


By CALVIN GRAY
LocAL GUEST WRITER

We enjoy some of the most
beautiful weather in the world
but we are challenged by how
to coexist with our subtropical
climate.
While we all love the sun, we
also want shade for comfort and
protection from the sun. And for
the growing number of people
who are limited to minimal or
no exposure to the sun, shade is
an essential requirement.
Given the unpredictable na-
ture of Florida's weather, shelter
from a sudden storm might be
needed just moments after you
ducked into shade. Restaurants,
bars, parks and playgrounds are
just a few places where protec-
tion from both sun and rain is
needed.
Many homeowners would
like to take advantage of the
benefits of commercial applica-
tions for creating shelter in their
outdoor space. What solutions
are available for people who
want to be outdoors and enjoy
an outdoor lifestyle rain or
shine?
Products such as sun shades,
patio umbrellas and retractable
awnings help solve the problem
of too much sun. These prod-
ucts have become increasingly
popular and can be seen in our
community everywhere you
look.
However, when it comes
to shelter from the rain, most
shade products provide little to
no protection. Protection from
rainy weather generally requires
a composite or pan roof with a
gutter system. While a roof-over
system solves the problem of
rain, it permanently darkens the
area and takes away the open-
air element.
Arcadia, a small company
from the greater-Atlanta area,
has developed an adjustable,
louvered roof system that allows
full exposure to the sun and sky
when the louvers are open. But


with the touch of a remote, the
louvers can adjust to block the
sun and provide shade. When
fully closed, the louvers inter-
lock and provide a solid roof,
with rainwater directed to an
internal gutter system.
Recently, the Hooters on
Clearwater Beach installed this
system over its open-air dining
space overlooking the Gulf of
Mexico. The Arcadia system
provides its patrons with shaded
open-air dining, making this a
cool hangout spot.
What separates this system
from all others is that Hooters
can continue to serve its
patrons with the roof closed
during mild (nondriving) rain.
Such an ability to provide shade
or shelter is very important to
businesses that depend on the
comfort level of their customers.
Since all permanent appli-
cations require a permit to
install, which shade or shelter
products will meet hurricane
requirements?
Shade products typically
aren't designed to hold up in
hurricane conditions. Most
would be severely damaged or
destroyed in a significant storm.
Composite or pan-roof
systems are designed to meet

Create your own Florida-friendly yard


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
As environmental con-
sciousness rises on the Sun
Coast, many are trying to
educate themselves about
how they can make a differ-
ence on a personal level.
Right at the top of the
list are conservation and
preservation, both of which
are important because our
quality of life here depends
upon our active participa-
tion in the management of
Florida's natural resources.
In our very own small
corner of the universe -
our yards creating a
"Florida-friendly" landscape
is one way we can involve
ourselves in that process.
According to the
University of Florida,
Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences (UF/
IFAS), the integrated ap-
proach to Florida-friendly
landscaping emphasizes
nine interrelated principles:
Right plant, right place
Water efficiently
Fertilize appropriately
Mulch
Attract wildlife
Manage yard pests
responsibly
Recycle yard waste
Reduce stormwater
runoff
Protect the waterfront
Erin Alvarez, horticul-
ture and integrated pest
management agent with
the UF/IFAS Extension of
Sarasota County, said that
each day she speaks with
residents who are looking
for suggestions for how they
can better integrate those
fundamentals into their own
landscaping.
"They are making an
effort, but something just
isn't clicking," she said. "The
Florida-friendly principles
touch on the vast majority

of the issues going on for
them, whether it's insect,
weed or disease problems;
too much irrigation; or not
putting the right plant in
the right place.
"Those principles are
research-based, are very
easy and straightforward
to practice, and the best
part is, they have the best
interest of Florida's sensitive
natural environment in
mind."
Florida is a state re-
nowned for its diverse and
unique ecosystems. But
rapid development, par-
ticularly in coastal areas,
is continuing to destroy
wildlife habitats.
One of the ways home-
owners can create a safe
haven for the native
Floridians displaced by
growth is by making their
lawns and gardens a wildlife
sanctuary of sorts, providing
a safe stopping point for the
animals on their migratory
passage from one wild space


Lantana and milkweed are both great plants for attracting butterflies.


to another. When you create
a Florida-friendly yard, you
and your neighbors provide
a traversable route between
woodlands and wetlands
and other wild areas.
Dennis Barth, a landscape
engineer with Hazeltine
Nurseries, said that using
a variety of plants in your
yard's design to attract


different species of animals,
birds and butterflies will
allow your landscape to
become a living part of
nature.
"Depending on how dense
you make your yard, it can
be conducive to other types
of wildlife," he said. "You

should be looking for plants
to attract Florida animals,
like flowering plants for
birds, butterflies and insects
to pollinate and canopy
trees for nesting. The plants
don't have to be native to
Florida, but you need some-
thing that is indigenous to
this area."
The difference between
the two is that native plants
are found only in Florida,
and indigenous plants can
be grown here but are also
found in other places. By
"density," Barth was refer-
ring to ground cover, which
can provide food and shelter
for other species of animals.
You can have a variety
of plants in your Florida-
friendly yard as long as
they are planted in the
right place for their cultural
needs. Ornamental trees or
palms, shrubs, flowering
perennials, fruit trees,
groundcovers and herbs are


all hardy, low-maintenance
plants that are well-adapted
to growing where we live.
Alvarez said that using the
Florida-friendly principles
the UF/IFAS suggests is
the best way to provide a
habitat for native Florida
wildlife, and for helping to
preserve our state's natural
beauty.
"They (the principles) can
be applied to any style or
size landscape or garden,"
she said. "Florida-friendly
landscaping means using
low-maintenance plants
and environmentally stable
practices. I usually tell
people it's really just guide-
lines for common-sense
gardening."

Accessorize to pull a room together


By GALE FITCH ea .
LOCAL GUEST WRITER E 'tafl


Everyone knows that
accessories make a room
look and feel complete, but
not everyone knows where
to start. Here are some tips.
Every room should have
a well-defined accent color.
The purpose of an accent
color is to move the eyes
from one point in the room
to another, allowing the
visitor to enjoy each of your
room's furnishings and focal
points.
When choosing acces-
sories in your home, try to
choose an accent color that
will unite the furnishings
you've chosen. They don't
need to be the exact color,
but rather shades and tones
of a color.
Use the base color's com-
plement on the color wheel.
A color's complement is
directly opposite your base
color on a color wheel. You
can even move one or two
steps over and the colors
will work well together.
You can also use several
shades of the same color as
accents.
It's nice to mix up warm
and cool tones in a room to
give it balance, but what-
ever color you have chosen
as your accent color, make
sure you scattered through-
out the room. This way it
becomes a cohesive part of
your design. Your accesso-
ries will reset the viewer's
interest and help his or her
eyes move throughout the
space.

room a feeling of home
and history. They give the
visitor a glimpse of yourself
- a window into your life,
a conversation starter. They
can also make or break your
room design.
Too many small, mis-
matched photos make a
room feel cluttered and
lacking direction. Try
instead grouping them in a
gallery. Go for consistency
in style: color of frame,
mat and print. Remember,
odd numbers are more
appealing.

we read last summer that
hasn't been recycled yet or,
maybe, beautiful antique
leather-bound books of
special interest. These can
also be used in your decor
on tabletops or shelves.
Less-attractive bindings
that aren't your accent color
can be changed. Select an
accent color paper and
ask any school-age child
to make a new book cover
for it. Stack three on their
side and place them on a
side-table top with a bit of
whimsy, and don't forget to
add a candy dish.
Sweet! Now you've moved
that accent color around the


room and done it in a way
that brings balance.
Original art, prints, and
mirrors can also create
movement of your color
story. Find artwork that
uses your accent color
as the highlight, or use a
mirror to reflect back to an
area where you view the
complement.
Let your home be a
reflection of the things that
inspire you and that make
you smile.

Refinish or replace? Here's how to decide


By LARRY MANOLY
LOCAL GUEST WRITER

Before someone gets an esti-
mate on refinishing furniture,
they want to know if the piece
is worth the cost to refinish or
if they should just replace it.
The answer to that question
is not always an easy one, as it
depends upon both the quality
of the piece and its sentimental
value.
How well is it made? Is it
made mostly of pressed wood
or particle board? Then it's
time to replace. Solid wood
or quality veneer? Then
refinishing is your best
decision.
Furniture that has been
passed down through the
family is usually made of
solid woods with quality
construction and beautiful
veneers and is hard to re-
place. Water marks, scratches
and heat-related damage
to such a piece of furniture
usually make it a candidate for
refinishing, and in most cases
that's cheaper than replacing it.


Antiques are always best to
restore when their finish loses
its visual appeal and protective
qualities.
Sentimental value is also
a consideration. An antique
highchair that was first used by
their child that grandparents
now want to pass down to their
grandchild, or a desk that they
want refinished with the child's
handwriting still carved in the
top, are two such examples.
People ask if refinishing an
antique will diminish its value.
It will if it's a very old, very
valuable, museum-quality
piece. Most people don't own
this type of furniture.
Asking yourself these ques-
tions should help you decide
what to do. If you still aren't
sure, consult a professional
repair service that will be able
to answer all of your questions.

Restoration becomes a more attractive option when a piece of furniture
would be difficult, if not impossible, to replace.


A key question in deciding whether to restore or replace a piece of furni-
ture is whether it was made of real wood.


Restoration services range from refinishing to rebuilding.

Good fences make great yards


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Many homeowners would
agree that the most beautiful
fences are made of wood,
wrought iron or stone. There
is something very special
about that type of classic look
around a well-manicured
yard.
But wood tends to rot after
long-term exposure to the
elements, wrought iron will
eventually rust and building
a real stone fence can be
cost-prohibitive. Luckily,
some of the newest trends in
fencing involve using mate-
rials that fool the eye but are
kind to the wallet.
Because Southwest Florida's
humidity and intense sunlight
can be tough on wood, one
of the most popular fencing
options is vinyl that looks and
feels like real wood.
"A lot of our fences now are
vinyl, because it's low-mainte-
nance and has a longer dura-
bility than wood," said Diana
Okeson of Florida Fence.
"Some of the newer brands
out there, like CertainTeed
Bufftech, are embossed and
look great."
While earlier versions of
vinyl fencing came only in
white, newer models are
produced in a variety of
wood-like colors.
"We now carry colored
vinyl, like weathered cedar,
redwood and dark charcoal,"
said Tiffany Fontanyi of
Fontanyi Fence Company.
"They have lifetime warran-
ties, are all UV-protected and
maintenance-free and have
the texture of real wood."
You can order vinyl fencing
in whatever height or style
you want, including picket
and split-rail.
The newest types of "stone"
fencing are made out of
eco-friendly recycled plastic.
With a 3-D look and authentic


stone colors, it's a more
cost-effective option than real
stone, and you won't have to
worry about moisture getting
into grout and disintegrating
the fence.
Homeowners can create a
custom fence with "stone" on
the bottom and aluminum
posts on top.
Today's aluminum can be
made to look just like wrought
iron or steel, but it has a cou-
ple of distinctive advantages.
'Aluminum lasts longer in
Florida because of the powder
coating on it," said Mike
Pettit, with the commercial
sales division of Jansen
Shutters & Windows. 'Alumi-
Guard (an aluminum fencing
manufacturer) has a lifetime
warranty that even carries
over to the next homeowner."
And aluminum, unlike
wrought iron and steel, does
not oxidize and eventually
rust. When it's powder-coated
in black paint, the only way
you can tell the difference
between aluminum and
wrought iron is by the weight
of it aluminum is much

lighter. It is, however, durable;
hence, the lifetime warranty.
Pettit said that one request
that he gets a lot from home-
owners is for a "puppy picket."
Most aluminum fences
have standard widths
between the pickets of 31/2 to
4 inches. But dogs and cats


AX


can easily fit through these
spaces and wild animals can
get into the yard. A "puppy
picket" fence has a width of
about 112 inches between
the pickets, which makes it
impossible for pets to escape

and keeps them safe.
Whichever type of fencing
you choose, it's important
to remember the height
restrictions for your
area: 61/2 feet in the city
of Sarasota and 8 feet in
Sarasota County. City of


Venice zoning is a little
more complicated.
"There's a peculiarity to
the rule, but the common
understanding is that the
fence can be 6 feet tall," said
Scott Pickett, senior planner
for the city of Venice. "That
would be except for in the
front yard, where 20 feet

additional 3 feet could be
added, as long as it doesn't
present a solid surface.

'Steamed' that your clean carpet isn't?


By LARRY KRUSE
LOCAL GUEST WRITER
You just had your carpet
steam-cleaned and, lo and
behold, it already looks dirty
again. Now, the steam is
coming out of your ears.
Your carpet cleaner
probably did a good job -
for what he did. The problem
is that carpets can be filled
with sticky stains, soils
and residues that are not
removed well with hot-water
extraction, also known as
steam-cleaning.
All too often carpets re-soil
soon after steam-cleaning,
and look like they have not
been cleaned at all a week
or two later. That's because
stains recur due to wicking of
the carpet, and dirt sticks to
the residue that doesn't get
removed.


A lot of this is a chemistry
problem.
About 79 percent of the
dirt in a carpet is particu-
lates that can be removed
by vacuuming. The goal of
carpet cleaning is to remove
the other 21 percent that
is attached to the fiber and
keep it from reattaching,
thus making the carpet stay
cleaner longer and resist
soiling. To do a thorough job
of that we need to transform
the stickiess" into something
that can be removed easily.
By using chemistry and
high-speed agitation, these
sticky residues, soils, spills
and stains can be liquefied.
A polymer added in the
cleaning process coats the
residue and the fibers -
which keeps it from reat-
taching. This method works
equally well on residential

and commercial carpets.
Speeding up the agitation
process is what emulsifies
the stickiess" into a liquid
that can be stripped from
the carpet fibers. This is


done with oscillating-pad
extraction machines whose

ilar to a clothes washer with

several paddles. They agitate
the moisture and cleaning/
encapsulant products
through the fibers at such a
speed and with such force
as to totally strip the carpet
fiber clean.
While stripped, the fiber
itself is coated with the
encapsulant. Also, all the
stickiess" that have been
stripped and liquefied are
mixed with the encapsulant,
thus not allowing them to
reattach to the carpet fiber.
In short, the stickiess" that
make your carpet look bad
are transformed into particu-
lates that can be removed by
vacuuming.
Your carpet will dry quickly
and look better because
more dirt has been removed.
Stains won't wick up the car-
pet fiber and recur, and the
carpet will stay cleaner up
to 50 percent longer because
the residue that dirt stuck to

is gone. For the same reason,
vacuuming will remove more
dirt than before.
You'll also find that a more
thorough cleaning will im-
prove your indoor air quality
and extend the life of your
carpet, making this method
of carpet cleaning an even
better value.

How to 'try on' new furniture


By MAGGIE FOX PIERRE
LOCAL GUEST WRITER
You try clothes on before
you buy them. When you
shop for furniture, it's not
as easy.
Whether it's a mobile
home or a larger ranch-
style dwelling, furnishing a
home can be challenging.
Here are some things to
keep in mind while outfit-
ting your home.
1. Focus on shopping day.
If Cousin Martha is going to
be a distraction, leave her
at home. Bring someone
who knows your personal
style and who will make it
fun.
Concentrate on one room
at a time. Your master bed-
room or main living area
may be your priority.
It's overwhelming to think
about several rooms at
once, so homing in will save
you time and save you from
leaving the store scattered
and frustrated because you
made no decisions.
2.Measure twice and


order once. This is many
furniture stores' mantra.
Before leaving home,
have your shopping partner
help you measure. Having
dimensions can alleviate
damage to your new furni-
ture, walls or doors, or even
having to return an item
you really wanted.
Basic measurements to
have include:
Doors, hallways and
stairwells exterior doors
are usually 32-36 inches
wide but can be smaller,
depending on the style and
age of your home. Interior
doors are usually 28-32
inches but can be as nar-
row as 24 inches. Measure
doorway height, too.
This can be an issue if,
for example, you're pur-
chasing a sleeper sofa to
go into a second bedroom.
If you have a wall that
greets you when you open
your front door, the sofa
will have to be put on end
and shimmied down your

hallway. The hallway width
and ceiling height are also
necessary in this case. Take
hallway light fixtures into
consideration too. Reclining
or modular sofas can be an
answer to narrow hallways
or doors or low ceilings.
Low ceilings in your
stairwell can be a concern if
you're trying to get a Queen
box spring up into a bed-
room. Upgrading to King
size can be a solution since
the box springs are split, or
there are split Queen box
springs available. Drivers
might hoist pieces over
railings for you, but it's not
a given.
Let your salespeople
know if you had any issues
with past appliance or fur-
niture deliveries so they can
give you their professional
opinion or consult their
delivery team.
SExisting furniture
most furniture looks


smaller in the store than it
is because stores often have
taller ceilings and open
layouts with very few walls.
If you're replacing a sofa,
measure back height along
with length and width, in
case the delivery team
has to turn the piece on its
back to get it through the
door.
3. Don't be afraid of your
salesperson. Salespeople
usually have knowledge that
will benefit you and make
your experience easier. It's
important to your salesper-
son, too, that your furniture
fits into your space the way
you envision it.
You didn't choose to be
related to Cousin Martha,
but you do get to choose
your furniture, so pick
items that you enjoy living
with and that fit into your
home.

Sustaining the community through edible gardening


By KATHRYN KLEIN DENINNO
SUN CORRESPONDENT
Spring is in the air. Flowers
and plants are sprouting up
and blooming. The urge to
get out and plant an herb or
vegetable garden is strong.
Thankfully, there are many
resources in our area to help
educate and encourage.
If you're not sure where
to start, you could go pur-
chase plants or seeds at one
of the many department
store garden centers, but
consider instead supporting
local businesses. And there's
nothing more local than the
farmers market.
Blooming Groves Nursery
is owned and operated by
a brother-and-sister part-
nership. Russ Esposito and
Donna Santoro have grown
plants in their working
nursery in North Port for
the past 13 years. Although
the nursery is closed to the
public, Esposito and Santoro
sell plants and seeds at the
Englewood and Venice farm-
ers markets on Thursdays
and Saturdays.
"We don't buy from large
nurseries to resell to others,"
Esposito said. "People love to
know that we grow our own
plants and they come out to
the farmers markets to meet
the grower."
Blooming Groves Nursery
offers plants at a fraction of
the cost of "big box" garden
centers. Best of all, their
recommendations and advice
about what to plant and what
grows well in our region are
free.
"I've been doing this for
about 25 years," Esposito
said. "I recommend growing
herbs and veggies in pots,
then you can move them
around as the weather
changes. The winter season
has ended, but you can

teach, help prepare beds, plant, tend, weed and water at these gardens. Those who volunteer will share in the harvest.

out the summer, as long as
you move your plants to

There's a global movement
of grassroots initiatives seek-
ing to raise awareness about
growing and buying local
food, supporting local com-
merce and utilizing alternative
energies. This movement is
called "Transition"; locally it's
known as Transition Venice.
Diane Carr, administrator
of Transition Venice, and
others work hard to build
community by creating local
self-reliance in food.
"A lot of us have gardens
in our yards or in the two
community gardens we've
helped to start in Venice,"
Carr said. "We learn, teach
and promote through our
monthly meetings and
events, such as our Edible
Landscape and Sustainable
Garden home tours and a
recent free public screening


of the award-winning doc-
umentary, 'Growing Cities,'
which examines the role of
urban farming in America."
Transition Venice encour-
ages those interested in
learning more about edible
gardening to join its email list
and to come talk to others
who are growing food in their
yards in order to learn from
their successes and failures.
"Gardening used to be
common in agricultural days
but now everyone shops in
the grocery store and buys
online from Amazon," Carr
said. "We're reframining the
way we live and work in our
community by inspiring peo-
ple to grow something and
support our local businesses.
Take a look at what you like
to eat and grow that, if it's
native to Florida."

Florida Native Plant
Nursery owners Laurel
Schiller and Fran Palmeri
opened their nursery in 1982
and have been growing hearty
edibles the ones that will
grow without pesticides for
the past three years.
"There are two starter
edible growing seasons for
the Gulf Coast area," Schiller
said. "Cool-weather season
begins when nighttime temps
stabilize below 60 degrees and
into 50 degrees, typically late
October or early November
through March. Warm season
starts when night temps
stabilize above 60 degrees,
typically in mid-March."
According to Schiller,
edibles such as Everglade
tomatoes, flat-leaf parsley,
lemongrass, basil, tarragon,
Greek oregano, yard-long
beans, peppers, blueberries,
papayas, eggplant, okra, kale,
spinach and Seminole pump-
kins are relatively easy to grow
naturally in this area.
"I work in container gar-
dening, using recyclable 7- to
10-gallon tree or landscaping
pots, and I move plants
around depending on the
light," Schiller said. "In the
container pots, I can keep en-
riching the soil, using organic
potting soil, worms and fish
emulsion."

Impact windows aren't just for storm safety

By CALVIN GRAY
LOCAL GUEST WRITER -


When deciding whether to
spend the money to replace your
windows with new impact win-
dows, look beyond the obvious.
Sure, the simplicity of having
windows (or doors) that have
hurricane-rated glass simplifies
the process of storm prepara-
tion. What's easier than locking
your windows and doors to seal
up your house?
But if you compare costs on
the basis of hurricane protection
alone, it's easy to see why people
consider cheaper alternatives.
If your windows and doors are
fairly new and you're satisfied
with their performance, then
going with a less-expensive
option to protect those windows
makes sense.
However, if you have dated
aluminum single-pane windows
that perform poorly in both
operation and energy efficiency,
then you should consider the
many ancillary benefits of new
vinyl impact windows besides
hurricane protection.
Today's vinyl impact
windows feature the most en-
ergy-efficient glass ever engi-
neered. Impact insulated glass
with LoE3 technology delivers
superior energy efficiency and
can easily reduce your annual
energy cost by 30 percent.
This technology exceeds all
Energy Star requirements and
reduces the wear and tear on
your air conditioner.
Insulated impact windows
reduce exterior noise by as
much as 85 percent over
single-pane glass. Dogs barking,
lawn mowers and traffic noise
are no longer noticeable due
to the acoustic performance of
triple-pane glass.
However, the most over-
looked benefit of new impact
windows is the added security
value. These new windows and
doors are virtually impenetra-
ble. The interlayer that makes
up the impact glass cannot be

Replacing your old windows isn't cheap but increasing your home's ability to ride out a hurricane is only one of
several reasons to do it.


breached by a sledgehammer
or baseball bat. Your home
becomes a fortress against
invasion by a common home
intruder.
What's the value of protecting
your family and your posses-
sions? The value of knowing
you and your belongings
are safe is a difficult thing to
quantify.
When you add up all of the
benefits, new impact windows
provide a better value than
meets the eye.

Popularity of


Legacy Trail


continues to grow


By STEVEN EARNEST
LOCAL GUEST WRITER

For decades, the city
of Venice and the wider
Sarasota area have striven
to be among the nation's
most welcoming outdoor
destinations. With an abun-
dance of activities such as
boating, swimming, fishing
and cycling, Southwest
Florida has become a
tropical paradise of outdoor
recreation for visitors from
all over the globe.
To support that reputa-
tion, local municipalities,
community organizations
and business leaders have
hosted many cycling and
multisport events, ranging
from organized runs and
rides to full triathlons. The
volunteers and organized
community groups that
have paved the way to ex-
pand our current system of
bicycle-friendly trails and
roadways have had one trail
to link them together.
Once, an operating rail-
way track on the land that
is now the Legacy Trail of
Sarasota County was used
to transport the Ringling
Bros. and Barnum & Bailey
Circus and other early
20th century developers.
Extending 10.1 miles north
from the historic Venice
Train Depot, the trail's cur-
rent northern terminus is
in Sarasota at Culverhouse
Nature Park in the commu-
nity of Palmer Ranch.
Several rest stops and
alternate parking areas
allow for easy access and
exit at various parks and
crossings along the route.


Among these are Nokomis
Park, Laurel Park, Oscar
Scherer State Park and
Osprey Junction.
Another 10 miles of
trail can be found along
the Venetian Waterway
Park. This sibling of the
better known trailheads
south of the train depot
to Shamrock Park along
the eastern bank of the
Intracoastal Waterway, and
south to Caspersen Beach
Park on the western side.
Combined, these are among
the most heavily trafficked
trails in the county, seeing
use by thousands of out-
door enthusiasts every year.
Members of myriad local
bicycle clubs, include the
Sarasota-Manatee Bicycle
Club, the Coastal Cruisers
and Sarasota County Off-
Road Riders, frequent the
trail. With various orga-
nized rides throughout the
week, both on the road and
off, it can be difficult to
avoid seeing several bikers
in and around town on any
given day of the week.
Mile markers painted on
the paved surface of the
trail will help you track
your distance (or indicate
to emergency responders
your exact location along
the trail). Several profes-
sional bike shops in the
area provide complete sales
and service for every level
of skill and interest.
The Legacy Trail is also a
great place to view the local
flora and fauna that make
this part of North America
unique. This includes the
American alligator, Florida
panther, Florida manatee,

sandhill crane, gopher tor-
toise, various waterfowl and
a variety of colorful insect
species, not to mention all
the pine and palm trees
that you can shake a stick at
(pun intended, of course).
With various water
crossings and wilderness
areas along the trail, you're
always seeing something
wild. Please, be kind to
any wildlife that you come
across and only leave


footprints when departing
the trail. Volunteers keep
busy cleaning and main-
taining the trail so that the
rest of us can lead happier
and healthier lifestyles.

Does your estate plan need updating?


By BRYAN S. KESSLER
LOCAL GUEST WRITER

Some changes in a person's
life can have a significant
impact on the overall effec-
tiveness of an existing estate
plan. Everyone should con-
duct an annual evaluation
of his or her circumstances
to determine whether an
update is necessary.
Here are five common life
changes that could trigger
the need to update your
estate plan:
1. Recent move a recent
move to Florida can sig-
nificantly affect your estate
plan. Different states have
different laws, and while
Florida generally accepts
estate planning documents
from other states, there is
always that possibility that
a Florida court might hold
certain aspects of your plan
invalid.
2. Death of a loved one -
many of us name loved ones
to act as our personal repre-
sentative or trustee, include
them as beneficiaries of our
plans or designate them to
make health care decisions
when we are unable to do
so. When a loved one passes
away, it is important to
update your plan to take
into account their absence.
It is even more important to
do so if that loved one is the
only person named in your
estate plan.
3. Recent remarriage -
the Florida Constitution
and state statutes provide
surviving spouses with
certain rights to homestead
property and, among other
things, the option to take
an "elective share" in the
deceased spouse's estate. If
you wish to execute an estate
plan that gives homestead
property to someone other
than your spouse, or leaves


less of your estate to your
spouse than is provided for
under Florida law (whether
because you have children
from a previous marriage,
the most recent marriage
occurs later in life or some
other circumstance), then
certain statutory require-
ments must be fulfilled.
Failing to plan accordingly
can result in a chaotic estate
administration.
4. Newborn it is im-
portant to update your
estate planning documents,
especially your last will
and testament, after having
children. Under Section
732.302, Florida Statutes, a
"pretermitted" child one
who is not mentioned in
your will might obtain a
larger share of your estate
than the children provided
for in the will. As a result, it
is important to update your
plan to take into account
this change in circumstances
to ensure that each child
receives an equal portion of
your estate.
5. Contention between
family if contention has
developed between you
and certain family mem-
bers named to act in your
absence (personal represen-
tative, trustee, health care
surrogate) or those who are
named as beneficiaries in
your existing plan, then it is
important to consider this in
determining whether an up-
date is needed. Remember,
contention between family
members could result in
a will contest that quickly
depletes the assets of your
estate.

Failing to keep your estate plan up to date can cause anguish and financial

If you set up an estate plan early in your marriage, you'll need to be alert
to a lot of life changes that will need to be incorporated into it.

Eat the 'whole' thing for better health


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
CORRESPONDENT

For those who have lived
the majority of their lives
eating whatever they wanted
without too much regard for
the contents of that food,
growing older and seeing
the results of unhealthy
eating is an eye-opener.
Healthy eating doesn't
mean dieting; it's really just
paying more attention to the
ingredients in food, making
sure that they're the type
of elements that will add
nourishment to your body,
not just take up space or
worse, add things you don't
want in your body.
Eating healthy is a learned
behavior. And developing
healthy eating habits isn't as
restrictive as it may seem.
The basic steps are to eat
mostly plant-based foods,
like vegetables, fruits, whole
grains and legumes (beans,
peas, lentils) and try to
limit foods that are highly
processed.
Karen and Jay Trunzo,
who own Punch Kettlebell
Gym in Sarasota, give their
members plenty of helpful
advice about nutrition and
changing the way they eat.
They say that you should
always choose healthy food
over "nutritional" supple-
ments and processed food
products.
"We talk about real, whole
foods," Karen said. "If it
grows in the ground, runs
around or swims in the wa-
ter, that's a whole food. It's
the cleanest form of eating,
because it's nonprocessed,
not boxed and has no chem-
icals or added sugars."
Jay said that it's a good
idea to check out a list
called the "Dirty 30," a
listing of the 30 worst foods
you can put into your body.
Foods are numbered from


one to 30, from bad to
worse, starting with kids'
cereal and ending with
cheddar cheese.
The major problem with
these foods is that they are
loaded with preservatives,
added sugars and extremely
high levels of "bad" fats.
"If you're going to eat
meat, you really want to eat
grass-fed beef and wild-
caught fish, which offer
the same health benefits
across the board," Jay said.
"If you are older and not as
active as you used to be, the
cleaner you eat, the better
you will feel."
When it comes to the
healthiest things to drink,
water wins out, of course.
Experts say that you should
consume about eight
8-ounce glasses per day to
ensure that your body runs
as it should.
Water is an important part
of digestion and an essential
component of blood, and is
necessary for the complete
absorption of vitamins. But
when you're not drinking
water, you may want to con-
sider another drink that's
gaining in popularity as a
healthy one: green tea.
Native to China and
India, green tea has been
known for its health benefits
around the world for cen-
turies, but we in the United
States have only recently
caught on to the green tea
craze.
Available in loose leaf
and powder forms, the tea
is high in antioxidants and
natural chemicals called
polyphenols, which are
believed to have anti-
inflammatory and anti-
carcinogenic qualities.
Tony Gordon and his wife,
Izumi Haraki-Gordon, own
Haraki-Gordon Green Tea,

A recent study suggests that eating seven servings of fruit and vegetables

and they sell their powdered
and loose leaf teas, tea pots
and accessories at area
farmers markets. Gordon's
wife's family has been grow-
ing green tea on their own
Japanese farms for centu-
ries, and that is the source
for the tea Haraki-Gordon
sells here.
"The biggest thing with
green tea is that it helps
block out cancer cells,"
Gordon said. "Green teas
are beneficial with alkalines,
which keep illnesses away,
and the powdered ones are
even better than the leaves
because you are ingesting
the whole food instead of


extracting it."
Most medical experts will
tell you that when it comes
to trying to eat and drink
healthier, no matter what
your age, the bottom line is
portion control. Even alco-
hol and "bad" foods are not
all that harmful when eaten
and drunk in moderation.
After all, if you're being
so good with your new diet,
don't you deserve a little
treat every once in a while?

New car technology makes driving safer


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Despite getting older, many
of us are hesitant to stop
driving our cars. After all,
driving represents a certain
sense of independence the
freedom to go wherever we
want whenever we want.
The good news is that car
manufacturers are building
more and more features into
their cars to make driving
easier and safer for everyone,
and especially for seniors.
According to a survey late
last year of drivers over the
age of 50 by the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology and
The Hartford Insurance
Company, the top five newer
safety features they are most
impressed with are: crash
warning systems, blind-spot
warning systems, drowsy-driv-
er alerts, emergency assistance
response systems and reverse
sensors that warn drivers of
objects behind them.
Dale Eichelberger, a sales
consultant at Cramer Honda
of Venice, said that he has
been selling Hondas for close
to 30 years and has found
that while most of his senior
customers don't specifically
ask for Honda's many safety
features, they definitely like
them.
"The technology doesn't
usually excite them, but
the technology end of the
safety features does," he said.
"Honda was one of the first
to put in side-curtain airbags,
and the structural integrity of
a Honda is second to none."
Some of what Eichelberger
called Honda's "active" safety
features address the needs
of the seniors in the MIT/
Hartford Insurance survey,
and are options in Honda's
higher-end cars.
The Lane Departure
Warning feature alerts the


driver if the car begins to
drift to either side without a
turn signal being used. The
Forward Collision Warning
feature senses the presence
of vehicles in front of your car
and sounds an alert if you get
too close. And the Adaptive
Cruise Control electronically
monitors your following dis-
tance when in cruise control,
accelerating or decelerating
when needed.
Chevrolet and its parent
company, General Motors, are
also concerned with safety
features in their vehicles. Bill
Buck Chevrolet sales associate
Todd Matasek said that a
10-airbag system is standard
in GM's cars, and the optional
Advanced Safety Package
includes Forward Collision
Alert, Lane Departure Warning
and Side Blind Zone Alert with
Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
But GM also has an op-
tion that sets it apart in the
automotive world the
OnStar safety, navigation and
communication system.
"If something were to hap-
pen to (a driver), there is an
SOS button that works just like
a 911 button," Matasek said.
"The other thing about OnStar
is that if there's an accident,
the airbags don't even have to
go off, but the vehicle knows
you were in an accident."
OnStar also has a vehicle
locator function that tracks
your car anywhere if it has
been stolen.
Just last year, AAA published
a list of "smart" cars that are
great for seniors with one or
more health condition that
might cause a problem when
driving. You can find cars that
provide assistance with your
physical limitations at:
SeniorDriving.AAA.com/
SmartFeatures.
For example, if you have
a limited range of motion
and pain in the knee, leg or

hip, some of the features you
might look for would be a
six-way adjustable seat, a low
door threshold, comfortable
seats, leather or faux leather
seats and adjustable foot
pedals.
On the AAA website, when
you click the options of six-
way adjustable seat, com-
fortable seats and leather
or faux leather seats, it lists
about 40 specific models of
cars that fit that particular
description, along with their
base price range and gas
mileage.
Automotive technology
that helps combat the effects
of getting older, and which
includes more convenient and


effective safety features, is sure
to gain even more traction
in the future, as the nation's
car-buying baby boomers are
purchasing the bulk of the
vehicles.
The important thing is to
ask questions and be informed
about which features your new
car has. If you have to spend a
little more to take advantage
of those options, your safety is
well worth it.

No shortage of things to bug us here


By DEBBIE FLESSNER
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Even though we live in one
of the most beautiful places on
earth, it's time to face the facts
- this is also an area populated
by many, many pests.
Just like we do, insects,
spiders and rodents love the
humid, subtropical weather,
and as any Florida transplant
will tell you, there is nothing
like the shock you receive the
first time you see the size of
a palmetto bug aka flying
cockroach.
Though "no see'ums,"
mosquitoes and lovebugs can
be annoying, they aren't usually
a problem inside your home.
According to pest control
experts, roaches, ants, spiders,
silverfish, termites and rats are
the key culprits you need to
watch out for in your house.
One other thing they all agree
on is that an ounce of preven-
tion is worth a pound of cure.
"The best thing you can do is
have a preventive maintenance
program for your lawn and
home," said Charlie Lee, of
Venice's Hoskins Pest Control.
"The key is pest control, not
pest elimination."
Lee talked about the sheer
numbers of pests that are com-
mon in this area -12 kinds of
roaches, for example, and lots
of species of ants.
Apparently, German cock-
roaches are the hardest to get
rid of because they lay about
30 eggs a day. Each one of
these species requires its own
treatment to ensure it stays out
of your home.
And these insects don't really
need a lot of food to survive.
Lee said they can even live in
vacant homes because they
survive on the natural proteins
found in mold and rotting roots
and shrubs around the bases of
buildings.
Another big problem in
frame houses on the Suncoast
is termites.


"There are two different types
of termites: subterranean and
drywood," said Dean Burnside,
president of Good News Pest
Solutions. "We are the No. 1
state in the country for those."
Those pesky subterranean
termites are considered to be
one of the most destructive
wood insects in the United
States, eating their way through
about $2 billion worth of
property annually.
Again, the best way to
prevent getting them is to have
your home and the outside
base of your house treated on
a regular basis. If you already
have an infestation, you will
have to take a more aggressive
approach to get rid of them.
If you are already thinking
you may have a difficult time
sleeping tonight, here are two
more words for you to consider:
roof rats. That's right, rodents
are very eager to enter your
attic and live in your nice, cozy
house.
"Roof rats and fruit rats are
very prevalent here," Burnside
said. "They like to be here, just
like everyone else."
Pre-treatment outside the
home and installing screens
and barriers of entry from the
outside, as well as keeping trees
and bushes trimmed back from
the house, are the best ways to
prevent rodents from getting
into your house. If they are
already there, they must first
be trapped or poisoned and
removed, and then the house
needs to be sealed up tight.
If you are averse to the effects
of extermination chemicals,
contact a business like Good
News Pest Solutions, which
offers organic pest control.
Similarly, Hoskins Pest Control
offers something it calls
"echo-integrated" pest manage-
ment, which uses "low-impact"
pesticides and chemicals.
The bottom line is that you
don't have to live with the
creepy-crawlies in your house,
as long as you stay on top of the

Work remains, but Obamacare has turned around


By JOHN LUCHANSKY
and
DENIS RADEFELD
LOCAL GUEST WRITERS

The Patient Protection and
Affordable Care Act known
by most as "Obamacare"
- has affected nearly all
Americans since some of its
provisions went into effect on
March 23, 2010. Here's a recap
of events and announcements
surrounding the law, and a
preview of what lies ahead.
Leading up to the launch of
the first open enrollment on
Oct. 1, 2013, there were delays
and, as is well-known, techni-
cal problems of the worst kind.
The first delay was a change
in the mandate that employers
with 50 or more full-time
employees provide health
insurance to their workforce
or face stiff penalties. This
provision was delayed until at
least 2015.
As Oct. 1 came and went,
many Americans attempted to
complete applications online
at HealthCare.gov or by calling
the Marketplace call center
to apply. They were met with
error messages and frozen Web
pages due to both the demand
and out-of-date technology
implemented by the govern-
ment contractor responsible


for the website.
For nearly the first 30 days
of open enrollment there
were only 26,794 applications
completed successfully at the
Federal Marketplace used by
36 states, including Florida.
This was 90 percent below
projections.
After dozens of media
reports that people were losing
their coverage due to canceled
policies, President Obama
relented and said people who
had insurance could keep their
plans for another year. This
turned out to be a state-by-
state decision, with Florida
abiding by the president's
proclamation.
The anticipated rollout of
Obamacare could not have
been any worse. The turn-
around began when the White
House brought in a team of
tech superstars from Silicon
Valley to fix HealthCare.gov.
By December, the team
known as "Code Red" had
implemented improvements,
including data caching that
greatly improved response
times. On Dec. 23, there were
129,000 new enrollments, a
one-day high, followed by
93,000 the following day.
On March 31, the last day to

Policies obtained under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
take effect May 1 at the latest, for people who enrolled March 16 and later.
There will be another open enrollment period later in the year.

sign up for plans for 2014, the
website was again crashing
periodically. However, the gov-
ernment reported it had nearly
reached its goal of 7 million
enrollees, quite a feat with all
the initial technical problems.
The weekend of March 29-30
alone brought nearly 2 million
visitors to HealthCare.gov.
Can people enroll after
March 31? The government has
stated that anyone who started
an application and could not
complete it by the deadline
due to technical issues will be
able to get coverage in 2014.
In addition, like Medicare,
which has Special Election
Periods to help people enroll
year-round for reasons such as
moving and leaving employer
coverage, Obamacare will have
its own Special Enrollment
Periods.
To qualify, an individual
would have to experience a
life event such as the loss of a


job, losing minimum essential
coverage through a divorce,
gaining a dependent or be-
coming eligible for a premium
tax credit, to name a few.
What lies ahead? There
are things that need to be
addressed, such as the "family
glitch"- a spouse's individual
coverage from an employer
precludes the rest of the family
from obtaining premium tax
credits, if they would other-
wise qualify. There is also
speculation concerning a new
coverage level- "copper" -
with even lower premiums and
higher out-of-pocket costs.
There will certainly be
tweaking, but the health care
law did make an incredible
turnaround.

Sleep well your health depends on it


By SUSAN ERWIN
SUN CORRESPONDENT

For some people getting a
restful night of sleep is a dream
rather than a reality.
And according to Jan
Frederick, aVenice registered
nurse, not getting a good night
of sleep can be a serious hazard
to your health.
Frederick has more than
20 years' experience working
with patients in the emergency
room, cardiac intensive-care
unit and hospice.
'As a nurse, I know that lack
of sleep can cause irritability,
depression, weight gain, poor
memory, lack of alertness
and problems with learning,"
Frederick said.
Many of the symptoms are
related to brain changes associ-
ated with sleep, she said.
"Sleep deprivation increases
the stress hormone cortisol
and appetite regulator ghrelin,
which can lead to weight gain,"


Frederick said.
She knows the impact of a
lack of sleep from personal
experience. Frederick said she
worked the night shift for years
and went to school during the
day.
"I would try to fight it,
but sooner or later the body
physiologically has to give in,"
she said.
She said that sleep depriva-
tion may also increase the risk
of death from accidents, heart
attacks and strokes.
Tim Barrett, a personal
trainer who works with clients
at area gyms, said regular
exercise can greatly boost a
person's ability to get a good
nights sleep.
"Your body has a natural ten-
dency to ease into sleep after 30
minutes of medium-intensive
cardio activity and strength
training," said Barrett, who lives
in Osprey

If you habitually experience
insomnia, studies have shown
that exercise can help you
sleep better, he said.
"Daily exercise can help you
sleep sounder and longer and
it will help you feel more awake
during the day," he said.
Eating the right foods several
hours before you hit the hay
may help you fall asleep faster,
said Venice nutritionist Kristen
Byerly.
"Bananas are an excellent
source of magnesium and
potassium, which help to
relax overstressed muscles,"
Byerly said. "They also contain
tryptophan, which converts to
serotonin and melatonin, the
brain's calming hormones."
Almonds are another good
snack to munch on before bed,
Byerly said.
"They contain magnesium,
which promotes both sleep
and muscle relaxation," she
said. "And they have the added
benefit of supplying proteins


that can help maintain a
stable blood-sugar level while
sleeping."
If you are eating well and
exercising regularly, but still
lying in bed staring at the
ceiling, meditation is a proven
method to help relax.
Eric Normand, an acupunc-
turist in Venice, said there are
many ways to incorporate
relaxation techniques into your
everyday lifestyle to improve
sleep quality.
"Meditation is an excellent
way to control thoughts and is
a safe and simple way to bal-
ance your physical, emotional
and mental states," he said.
When many people are
preparing to go to sleep, he
said, they get preoccupied
with thoughts about things
that have happened that day,
or they think about what is on
their schedule the next day
and can't escape that kind of
thought process.
"Meditation can help you
pull your mind away from
concerns about the past

or future and focus on the
present moment," Normand
said.
It can be as easy as vi-
sualizing yourself sitting
quietly in a peaceful, tranquil
environment.


"Meditation is not so much
an emptying of the mind as it
is a calming of the mind," he
said. "Even just a few minutes
every night can help."

Saving energy from solar panels to solar bikes


By KATHRYN KLEIN DENINNO
SUN CORRESPONDENT

Regardless of whether
you're raising a family or
trying to enjoy your golden
retirement years, most con-
sumers are on the lookout
for ways to save money.
We clip coupons to lower
our grocery bill, search
online for the best airline
rates or vacation packages
and make purchases at
used bookstores or thrift
shops. But how far are you
willing to go to save energy
as a means of reducing your
bills?
Bill Johnson, owner of
Brilliant Harvest, a company
in Sarasota that designs,
develops, constructs and
operates solar hot water and
photovoltaic systems, thinks
there are two approaches to
saving energy on a daily basis.
"The first and most lucra-
tive way to save energy and
reduce bills is to conserve,"
Johnson said. "It's simple
things like running your air
conditioner a couple of de-
grees warmer in the summer,
turning off lights when you
leave rooms and installing
fans in rooms where you
spend a lot of time. These
efforts are effective and can
make a huge difference in
terms of your energy bills."
The second approach in-
volves making investments,
understanding the return
on those investments may
happen gradually.
"Start small, with changing
out your lights to energy-
saving compact fluorescent
light bulbs or light-emitting
diodes," Johnson said. "Then
look into improving the
insulation in your attic and
adding an attic vent; install-
ing a lighter colored silver
or white roof to reflect more
light and heat; upgrading
your windows to double- or


triple-pane glass; and chang-
ing to a higher energy-effi-
cient air conditioner.
"We try to get folks to be
already fairly efficient before
they even start looking at in-
vesting in our solar options,"
said Tom Harriman who took
over the business from his
dad in 1983.
Solar by Harrimans, 140
James St., Venice, was estab-
lished in 1967. The company
specializes in solar-power
system design and sales and
installation for residences,
businesses, institutions and
nonprofit organizations.
"Savings from solar in-
stallation depends on actual
power usage," Harriman
said. "We have a customer in
Sarasota who has three solar
technology systems in place
and only has $7-per-month
electric bills. Other custom-
ers are happy to reduce their
electric bills by 50 percent."
Harriman recommends
that potential customers
look at ways to reduce con-
sumption, and stresses the
importance of researching
options.
"There are helpful web-
sites out there, such as
DSIREUSA.org, NREL.gov
and FlaSEIA," Harriman
said. "A lot of people
start out with baby steps
when it comes to energy
conservation."
Brilliant Harvest and Solar
by Harrimans both offer
various solar technologies,
such as solar pool systems,
solar water heating and pho-
tovoltaic/solar electricity, to
residential and commercial
clients. Solar by Harrimans
also installs electronic-
vehicle charging stations.
"We have 10 charging
stations within the Sarasota
municipal area available,"
Harriman said, "including

Shawn McCarty designed this solar-powered electric tricycle with a basket
to carry items, room behind the driver to carry a passenger and a bimini
top with solar panels to charge the batteries. McCarty takes regular bikes,
often found on Craigslist, and converts them to electric bikes.


Brilliant Horizon is installing three solar arrays, made of more than 200
solar panels, at Tampa Bay Watch. With the solar technology installed, this
conservation organization in Tierra Verde, Fla., is expecting to offset
80 percent of its total energy usage.

four at the city parking
garage on Palm Avenue.
These are for anyone to use
at no cost."
Shawn McCarty is a
self-employed entrepreneur
who has made the conscious
choice to go well beyond
baby steps to save energy
and reduce his carbon
footprint on Earth.
McCarty has built his
own solar water heater
and a photovoltaic solar
electric system to power his
1,500-square-foot house,
which was featured in March
on Transition Venice's Edible
Landscape and Sustainable
Home Tour. His large garden
of edibles is irrigated by
a well pump run on solar
energy and his main form of
transportation is a solar-
powered electric bicycle or a
solar-powered tricycle.
"I went to Europe for three
months and cycled from


Ireland to Morocco, which
was over 3,000 miles," said
McCarty. "When I got back,
I decided to see how I could
do without my car and I
sold it. I needed a way to get
around, so I built an electric
bike, and that was the start
of it."
McCarty is not a purist.
He does have a power meter
and pays $5 to $8 per month
to maintain a connection to
Florida Power & Light as a
back-up plan.
"If we were all of a sudden
to see a 10-fold increase
in electricity, I wouldn't
even notice," McCarty said.
"Everybody says they want
to change the world but
very few people are willing
to change the way they live.
Sometimes I get a cold shower
because I don't have enough
solar power to have hot water,
and my transportation is at
times limited.
"My life is different than
most, but I'm certainly not

suffering. I have a sense of
abundance, not poverty. I feel
like I'm having a great adven-
ture. I feel more connected to
my community, to the food I
eat and to the natural rhythms

Adoption is a matter of choice the cat's


By DONNA L. SMITH
LOCAL GUEST WRITER
If you've ever seen the musi-
cal "Fiddler on the Roof," you'll
recall that one of the songs is
"Matchmaker, Matchmaker."
The song begins, "Matchmaker,
matchmaker, make me a
match, find me a find, catch me
a catch...."
This phrase is very apropos
when someone enters St.
Francis Animal Rescue and ex-
presses an interest in adopting
a kitty. Matchmaking begins, to
find the "perfect" kitty or kitties
for the person, couple or family.
A number of years ago my
husband and I lost a beloved
senior cat. Our younger male,
Spritz, was grieving so much at
being alone he stopped eating
and began hiding.
I was on a business trip, and
my husband called me to tell
me we had to get another cat
quickly or Spritz would also die.
That same day, my husband
went to St. Francis in search of a
kitten to give Spritz a buddy.
The adoption counselor told
my husband to go into the
kitten room, sit down quietly
and see who picked him. He
thought that was odd, but did
as he was told.
After all the kittens in the
room checked him out, one
small, brown tabby male
climbed on his lap and began
purring. The other kittens
backed off and my husband left
with the kitty who had "chosen"
him.


This cat is now almost 5 years
old and continues to delight
and entertain us daffily. He has
become the "alpha" male in our
household of three cats.
It's exactly how the story
should go in every household.
Sometimes, people come into
the shelter hoping to replace
their deceased cat with one that
looks exactly like the one they
are grieving. But looks can be
deceiving, and the outcome less
than satisfactory if one's mind is
not open to looking beyond the
surface.
Other times, people come in
looking for a kitten or an adult,
or a male or a female, or a black
or an orange cat... the list
goes on. Believe it or not, if we
allow time to meet the kittens
and cats, and are patient in the
process, the right cat will pick
you, and you too may have a
happy ending.
If you are interested in train-
ing to be an adoption counsel-
or, fill out a volunteer form and
get yourself assigned to a day
when you can start learning
how to be a matchmaker. It
takes quite a while to become
a good matchmaker, and we
need trained counselors to staff
the shelter six days a week.
Consider spending a few
hours each week helping to
place our kittens and cats into
loving, stable homes.

Venice is at 1925 South Tamiami
Trail, Venice. Call 941-492-6200
or visit: StFrancisARFl.org.

The foundation of a good relationship with a cat often is letting the cat
choose you.


By assuming a submissive position, a cat shows you it knows you're the
boss as much as you can be, with a cat.


If you're going to be away from home a significant part of each day, consider
getting two compatible cats so they can keep each other company.

Stressed? Take a deep breath... and read


By DENEE MACDONALD
LOCAL GUESTWRITER


Bestselling author Stephen
King once said, "Books are
the perfect entertainment: no
commercials, no batteries, hours
of enjoyment for each dollar
spent." However, many people
aren't aware that their favorite
pastime comes with some pretty
neat health benefits.
A London-based survey
commissioned by The National
Year of Reading found that
reading is a great way to destress.
Nearly two-thirds of readers
surveyed stated their primary
reason for reading was to escape
their troubles and provide
themselves with a brief respite
from everyday strains.
Our brains are on constant
overload with electronic
information, and reading is
a great way to "unplug" and
recharge our brain. It can also
promote better sleeping habits,


as one-third of those interviewed
said they find it "hard to sleep
if they haven't read before
bedtime."
Top neurologist Baroness
Susan Greenfield added her
support to the study.
"Reading novels and mag-
azines can offer a brief respite
from the stresses and strains
of everyday life," she writes
"Traditionally, reading was
associated with learning, and in
this way it is good for personal
development, but reading a
magazine or even a cookbook
can be very comforting. Our
brains are constantlybom-
barded with information, more
so now than ever before, and
reading is a good way to wind
down."
Reading can help prevent
Alzheimer's and improve
memory too.
New research that appeared in
the Proceedings of the National
Academy of Sciences found


people who regularly read are
two and a half times less likely
to have Alzheimer's disease, a
debilitating illness that affects
more than 4 million Americans.
Researchers claim that activities
that promote mental stimula-
tion, such as reading, are closely
linked to slower brain-power
decline later in life.
Aside from the immediate en-
joyment of reading a good book,
reading can actually improve
brain function and memory.
While enjoying stories about
new people in new places, we
are actually building new brain
synapses. Just like other muscles,
the brain benefits from a good
workout. In addition, reading
can help fine-tune our general
language skills, vocabulary and
background knowledge.
Taking time out to read to
children and grandchildren is
a crucial part of their learning
process. Almost 80 percent of a
child's brain develops between


birth and 5 years of age.
Listening to a favorite story
can help children embrace their
creative skills while promoting
imagination and curiosity.
Reading to your children on a
regular basis helps expand their
language skills by listening to
words and sentences not com-
monly found in their current
vocabulary.
All of these benefits will help
them prepare for future school-
ing, and encourage an early love
of learning.
No matter what health
benefits appeal to you, read to
be happy. Meet new characters
and revisit old friends. Transport
yourself through space and time,
and experience things you never
would otherwise.
Happy reading!

90-year-old vehicles still on the road


ow! What a
wonderful day I
had last Saturday
in Arcadia interviewing
owners of three very old
vehicles.
The visit came about
after speaking with Joe
Gallimore, publisher of
The Arcadian, about local
residents with very old
cars. He recommended I
contact Dr. Calvin Martin
Sr., a physician who has
a Model T Touring car.
He also recommended a
fourth-generation busi-
nessman who operates
Smith's Ace Hardware Store
and Farm Supply, Durward
Smith Jr. I phoned both
and scheduled a meeting,
first at Dr. Martin's home to
see his 1924 Model T Ford
Touring Car and later with
Mr. Smith to check out his
1926 Ford T Roadster pick-
up truck.
When I arrived at the
Martin's residence, a very
lovely estate, the doctor,
his charming wife, Genie
and their son, Mac,
warmly greeted me. They
truly were gracious in
every way and soon I felt at
home, like a family friend.
Parked nearby was "The
T," a nickname given the
now 90-year-old Ford in
1948 when Calvin saw it
being driven along a road.
He told me, "I hollered for
the driver to stop," which
happened, resulting in a
sales agreement. It took
the struggling college
student three years to
completely pay the seller
$100. Meanwhile the "Tin
Lizzy" was used as regular
transportation until 1950
when it was given to his
brother Charles who mo-
tored about the University
of Florida and had his
photo in Look Magazine
carrying a beauty queen in
a parade.


S'lDSon and Lee


After that "The T" was
parked for years until Doc
Martin retrieved it and
had the wood, top and
mechanical parts rebuilt.
Now the doctor uses "The
T" for fun drives around
town smiling as he goes,
getting waves from people
who see him reliving his
youth.
Sixty years ago while
working in Koch Drug
Store as a pharmacist, Doc
Martin met Miss Genie
McSwain. Six months later,
they married and parented
a daughter, who is now
Ms. Lew Cassels, a nurse
practitioner, and two boys,
Mac Martin, who owns a
local real estate firm, and
Calvin Jr., a physician in
Gainesville. Genie has
been a real estate agent
for 30 years and works
for Mac's company. She
also manages the music
department at the First
Presbyterian Church, and
has for 54 years.
Her father and grand-
father were both doctors
in DeSoto County. Dr.
Calvin Martin Sr., 85, still
practices medicine daily in
Arcadia, and his dad also
was a doctor in Highlands
County.
What a pleasure it was
to meet this accomplished
family and write about
them and their beloved
Model T.
The doctor suggested
I follow him to meet a
fellow who restores older
cars, trucks, wooden boats

modern features.


and antique outboard
engines. Off we went, soon
arriving at the home and
shop of Charlie Rosato,
50, who was outside with
his like-new 1931 Ford AA
ton-and-a-half truck This
vehicle has a custom-built
wooden camper body
he designed and made
attached just to the rear of
the cab.
It is very much first-class
in material and construc-
tion with a brass plate
stating "Shangri-la"' on the
area below the rear dutch
entry door. All running
gear is stock, except for
a GM V6 engine mated
to the 1931 non-syncro
four-speed transmission.
There's a bladder built
in the roof that holds 20
gallons of water for the
sink and outside shower.
It also features a chemical
toilet plus a fridge and
electricity.
This gem of a machine,
in 2012 carried him 7,640
miles driving the southern
route to California and
most of the west and
northwest USA and back
to Florida, via the Northern
route, in 77 days. There
were no serious problems
and it got 15.3 miles per
gallon at speeds averaging
45 mph.
Charlie has six acres,
raises beef cattle and
boar goats from India
maintaining everything
himself and is available to
fabricate or rebuild almost
anything anyone wants
done. Charlie promises
to bring Shangri-la to the
fall Sun Newspapers show
Nov. 8. Stop by and see this
practical camper and meet
the colorful owner.

Roadster pickup


The third Arcadia owner
of an 80-year old-car
is Durward Smith Jr.,
who has a 1926 Model
T Roadster pickup. This
vehicle had a restoration
started 20 years ago and
was disassembled and
stored in seven wooden
crates. Finally, Durward
decided to take the project
over and hired Charlie
Rosato to do the job. He
had a puzzle on his hands
and after finding many
parts missing or too rotten
to restore. Charlie spent
considerable time to
secure parts. Some had to
be handmade including
the pickup box.

in 1905 using horses and

still in operation by 61 year
old Durward and his son,
Justin. His other son, Derek

cattle, and a vegetable

A Jetta TDI that's easy on wallet, fuel


By BRIAN THEVENOT
Los ANGELES TIMES

(MCT) -Diesel-
powered cars save on
fuel, but many of them
won't save you any
money.
That's because they cost
thousands more to buy in
the first place, compared
with similar gas-powered
models. And many
automakers usually offer
diesel engines only in
combination with a pricey
set of standard features.
So it can take years
- if ever to make up
for those upfront costs
through savings at the
pump.
That's what makes
the latest addition to
Volkswagen's growing
diesel fleet, the Jetta TDI
Value Edition, so intrigu-
ing. It offers the same
diesel engine used across
VW's lineup in a stripped-
down package with an
aggressive price: $22,115
with a manual transmis-
sion and $23,215 with a
dual-clutch automated
manual.
That cuts more than
$2,300 from the price of
the standard Jetta TDI
and makes it by far the
least expensive U.S. diesel
car. It undercuts VW's
other diesel models -
including the Golf, Jetta
Sportwagen and Passat -
by an even wider margin.


The Value Edition also
stands out for its rare mix
of a premium drivetrain
with only basic standard
features, a combination
we'd like to see more of
across the industry.
The pairing of the TDI
engine with VW's stan-
dard-setting dual-clutch
gearbox is among the
best in the industry at
blending fuel economy-
30 miles per gallon in the
city and 42 mpg on the
highway with driving
fun.
The engine is VW's
2.0-liter four-cylinder tur-
bo diesel with a modest
140 horsepower but gobs
of torque, at 236 pound-
feet. The torque translates
to impressive power at
the lower end of the rev
range, making it shine
in both city driving and
freeway passing.
From an efficiency
standpoint, the Jetta
is merely good in the
city but terrific on the
highway, approaching
the fuel economy of the
most efficient gas-electric
hybrids. On a trip from
Los Angeles to Phoenix,
we saw 43 mpg and got
better than 600 miles out
of a single tank of fuel.
But that same trip
highlighted what you give
up for the sake of value.
Hours spent in the cabin
reinforces the cheapness
of the interior. Gone are
upscale dash coverings

and silver inserts in
the door panels. Every
surface in the interior is a
cheap slab of shiny black
plastic.
The cheapening ex-
tends even to the steering
wheel, which loses the
leather wrapping and
chrome accents available
on more upscale Jettas.
The cloth seats instead
of the leatherette in many
Jettas also look low-
rent and could be more
comfortable, particularly
on long trips.
Buying the more
expensive version of the
Jetta TDI, which starts at
$25,545, gets you 16-inch
alloy wheels, chrome
trim on the grille and
windows, carpeted floor
mats, heated washer
nozzles, lumbar adjust-
ment in the driver's seat,


a multifunction steering
wheel, Bluetooth and VW
Car-Net, which connects
to your smartphone.
That's a substantial
upgrade, but it drives the
price to a point where the
diesel makes less sense as
a pure efficiency play. The
economic math on the
Value Edition, by con-
trast, is compelling when
compared with gas-pow-
ered economy cars in the
same price range and
lower-end hybrids such
as the Toyota Prius.
The standard Prius
starts at $25,010, a
substantial premium over
this new entry-level TDI.
The Toyota is arguably a
nicer car and gets better
fuel economy, particular-
ly in city driving, but the
Jetta is more fun to drive
by a wide margin.


The benefits of VW's
diesels get better over the
long term because of two
related factors: Longevity
and resale value. Anyone
who has shopped for a
used TDI has experienced
sticker shock, even for
older models with high
miles. They resell so well
because there's a short
supply of used diesels and
the engines are known
to last for hundreds of
thousands of miles.
Whether you want
to log all those miles in
a bare-bones interior,
riding on steel wheels
with plastic hubcaps,
is a matter of personal
taste. But recent sales of
the entire Jetta lineup
would suggest there's a
large customer base that
cares more about value
than upscale features and


superior build quality.
When the sixth-gener-
ation Jetta was released
in 2010, many auto
critics hated it, calling
it a dumbed-down
Americanized remake
that lacked the German
sophistication of the
previous generation Jetta,
which was essentially a
sedan version of the Golf.
American buyers have
had a much different re-
action- running down to
their localVW dealer, cash
in hand. VW sold more
than 163,000 Jettas in 2013,
compared with about
74,000 in 2010, the last
year of the pricier, better
equipped fifth generation.
By undercutting most
other U.S. diesels by
thousands of dollars, VW
may well add to that total
this year.


Driving faster is not the way to save fuel


DEAR TOM AND RAY:
Please settle a difference
of opinion. All things
being equal, which is
harder on my engine:
traveling 500 miles
at 50 mph, or going
500 miles at 75 mph? My
other half justifies her
75-mph theory with the
shorter time the engine is
working. Which uses less
fuel? And if you could
cite research sources,
that would be appreci-
ated. Thank you for the
time and trouble (and
no, there isn't any money
riding on the answer, just
my male ego). -Will
TOM: Congratulations,
Will. Your ego will remain
not only intact, but
actually enhanced by our
answer.
RAY: This reminds
me of the old lame joke
about the guy who was
almost out of gas, so he
drove home fast, hoping
to get there before he ran
out.
TOM: The primary
difference between
55 mph and 75 mph
is the wind resistance,
because wind resistance
makes the engine work
harder a lot harder.
The wind resistance is
almost double at 75 what
it is at 55.
RAY: Here are some
citations for that fact,
Will: Newton, Isaac,
Second Law of Physics,

because anyone who owns a car
needs a laugh.

1687; Newton, Isaac,
Air Resistance, 1726;
Bernoulli, Daniel,
Hydrodynamica, 1738;
and Euler, Leonhard,
Euler Equations, 1757.
TOM: Have your "other
half" start with that stuff,
and when she's ready,
write back and we'll get
her a workbook with
some Navier-Stokes
equations.
RAY: More recently,
Bridgestone did a study,
mostly for the benefit of
truckers trying to find
the ideal highway speed,
and they found that at
75 mph versus 55 mph,
over the long term,
maintenance costs could
increase by 10 percent
to 15 percent, with a
corresponding drop in
engine durability.
TOM: They also found
that tire life decreased
10 percent to 30 percent


due to the higher speed.
RAY: And fuel economy
definitely takes a hit due
to the higher wind resis-
tance. The same study
found that when you
drop your speed from
75 mph to 55 mph, your
mileage improves by
almost 40 percent! Here's
the link, Will, because
I'm sure she's not going
to believe you, or us,
with good reason: (www.
bridgestonetrucktires.
com/us eng/real/maga-
zines/ra special-edit4/
ra special fuel-speed.
asp).
TOM: They found that
for every mile per hour
you increase over 55,
you lose an average of
1.6 miles per gallon.
RAY: Now, all vehicles
are different, with differ-
ent engines, transmis-
sions and drag coeffi-
cients. So the "optimal"
speed for any individual
car might not be exactly
55 mph. But in general,
the faster you go over 55
or 60, the harder your
engine has to work, and
the lower your mileage.
TOM: Of course, there
is a cost for driving at
55 mph versus 75: your
time! It takes longer to
get to your destination.
RAY: And in your case,
that may be a reason to
go faster, Will. If you let
your wife drive at 75, it'll
allow less time for her


to regale you with her
wacko theories.
TOM: Enjoy your
victory, Will, but try not
to gloat. Remember,
you're undoubtedly
wrong about plenty of
other things!

How to find cause
of tire-pressure
warning
DEAR TOM AND RAY:
I have a 2006 Toyota
Sienna CE model with
approximately 85,600
miles on it. Recently,
I changed two of my
tires and had a wheel
alignment. Since that
time, my tire-pressure
warning light has been
coming on. I took it
to the mechanic, who
replaced the tires, and
he checked and found
nothing wrong. He said
the tire pressures are
all fine, and he said to
just drive it and the
problem will go away by
itself. I've driven it for a
couple of days now, and
the light is still coming
on. When you start the
car, the light doesn't
come on right away. But
then after driving five
to seven miles, it comes
on. The tire pressure is
good. I am checking it
every day. Any idea how
I can resolve this matter?
-Mir
RAY: Yeah by going


back to the mechanic
with a tin of warm
brownies. That often
gets us to try a little
harder. That's what your
guy needs to do.
TOM: My guess
would be that when he
changed your tires, he
accidentally damaged
one of the tire-pressure
sensors.
RAY: On the part of
the valve stem that
sits inside the tire is a
pressure sensor with a
little transmitter. That
sends information about
the tire's pressure to the
car's computer.
TOM: The tire-pres-
sure warning system on
the '06 Sienna does not
tell you which tire is low,
so you don't know which
of the two sensors got
damaged.
RAY: But here's what
you can suggest to the
mechanic. Tell him
that while you're not
absolutely sure, it seems
pretty likely that one of
the tire-pressure sensors
got damaged when he
changed the tires.
TOM: Then make him
a deal. Have him put new
sensors in those two new
tires. He can do them
one at a time if he wants
to. Maybe he'll guess
right the first time he's
got a 50-50 shot and
he won't have to do both.
RAY: And if a new


pressure sensor or
pressure sensors-
makes the light go off,
then it was pretty obvi-
ous that he's responsible,
and you're all set.
TOM: But if he chang-
es both sensors and that
doesn't fix the problem,
then you've determined
that he's not at fault -
in which case, you'll pay
him for that extra work.
RAY: In that case, it
may have just been a
weird coincidence, and
a sensor in another
wheel just happened to
fail after your tires were
changed. But I doubt it.
Good luck, Mir.
