LOCAL NEWS COVER TO COVER 1 FLORIDA'S NO. 1 WEEKLY NEWSPAPER


No majority in three-way council race


Slower-growth proponents now have a super-majori-
ty on Venice City Council, however.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Residents within the city lim-
its of Venice sent a mixed mes-
sage Tuesday when they elected
Kit McKeon to fill seat No. 2.
On the one hand, McKeon
won handily throughout the city.
On the other hand, he was
unable to gain a majority of
votes.
McKeon took the three-way


race with 42 percent of the vote
over planning commission chair
John Osmulski at 33 percent,
and retired firefighter Emilio
Carlesimo at 25 percent.
Venice does not have a provi-
sion in its city charter for runoff
elections, enabling a candidate
to win without a majority.
McKeon prevailed in more
than a majority of the city's
precincts, however, taking 10 of
11.


Osmulski was able to carry
only one precinct No. 150
(Waterford Sports Club). He
received 331 votes to McKeon's
312; Carlesimo received 142
votes in that precinct.
Carlesimo didn't take any
precincts, but did better than
Osmulski in precinct 61 (Ve-
netian Golf & River Club) and
precinct 63 (Emmanuel Lu-
theran Church), and received
one fewer vote than Osmulski in
precinct 45 (Country Club Es-
tates).

Sunshine suit




bogged down

Twelfth Circuit Court Judge
Robert Bennett on Friday
imposed new deadlines to help
move along the Sunshine suit
against the city of Venice, four
sitting council members and

Attorney Andrea Mogensen,
representing plaintiff Anthony

Election 'gap' delays


Sharky's settlement


The management of exotic plants and
animals in Florida costs taxpayers mil-
lions.

BY NEIL HUGHES
STAFF WRITER

Far more than pests, exotic plants and animals
are a multi-million dollar annual burden on
Florida taxpayers.
And worse, invasive exotics aren't going any-
where anytime soon. The best we can do, said
Chad Lach, park manager of the Gasparilla Island
State Recreational Area, is hope to control them.
"Our main goal is to try to maintain all of the
exotics within all of the parks at a maintenance
level," Lach said. "It's a never-ending battle. But it's
not one that you want to overlook and have it
become a huge project."
It costs Florida taxpayers about $38 million per
year to handle exotics on public lands, about 80
percent toward aquatic, said Ed Freeman, an exot-
ic plant expert with Sarasota-based environmen-
tal group Wildlands Conservation.
"Basically, it's to remove hydrilla and hyacinth
from rivers," Freeman said of state money spent to


control exotics. "A lot of that is a result of the fresh-
water fishing industry in North Florida."
That $38 million expense is pretty close to the
bare minimum, as it would cost an estimated $980
million to adequately address invasive exotics,
according to Freeman.
And even that near-billion-dollar investment
would only bring exotics under manageable con-
trol and only on public lands. They cannot be
eradicated, and the spread of plants from private
land continues.
"You've always got it just waiting in the winds
on the private land," said Dave Sumpter, executive
director ofWildlands Conservation.
Manual labor
Wildlands Conservation has created manage-
ment plans for more than 50 parks, preserves and
private land owners across Florida. A large part of
the organization's focus is on exotics.
On one 500-acre preserve the nonprofit man-
ages, half of the money for management is spent
on security and fire maintenance, and half is on
controlling exotics.
"Exotics exacerbate management and probably
double the cost in Florida," Sumpter said.

Venice City Council canceled
a Nov. 10 meeting to consider a
settlement in the ongoing
Sharky's Restaurant litigation.
Turns out two of its members
won't officially be in office for the
scheduled meeting.
Technically, the terms of
council members John Moore,
who ran unopposed, and Rick
Tacy, who decided not to run for
another term, expire today (Nov.
8), three years from the date they
were elected.


Detert ready to propose affordable housing plan


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

Finding office space, devising
a housing stimulus package and
working with the FBI to trace
threatening e-mails are just
some of the items on newly
elected state Senator Nancy De-
tert's to-do list.
"I am already receiving calls
from the state asking me where
is my new office and what my
phone number is," said the
District 23 Republican, who ran
against Sarasota attorney Mor-


gan Bentley.
"When you
win at mid-
night, you are .
the senator in
the morning.
People expect
me to start
working im-
mediately." Detert
With "plen-
ty" of office space available
there, Detert said Wednesday
she wants to open an office in
Venice where she resides -
close to the interstate making it


more centrally located for the 30
percent of Charlotte County resi-
dents in the district that she
serves. District 23 runs from
Longboat Key split over Sara-
sota and Manatee counties -
down the coastline through North
Port and into Charlotte County.
Throughout the election,
Detert touted a complex hous-
ing plan she quickly wants to
begin working on regionally in
Tallahassee.
"Sarasota has a housing plan;
Habitat for Humanity has a plan;
the Gulf Coast Community Foun-


dation has an affordable hous-
ing plan," she said. "I'd like to
bring everyone to the table and
start working together as quick
as possible. The state has $430
million in an affordable housing
trust fund. I'd like to put every-
one on the same page and move
the agenda forward."
Detert said that pooling small
pools of money from the differ-
ent housing plans might create a
larger, more effective plan once
she gets everyone to the table.

Due to the election date this
year, Moore and newly elected
Council Member Kit McKeon,
who won Seat No. 2 vacated by
Tacy, won't be sworn in until
Nov. 12, leaving council short
two members for four days.
It's happened before. Twice, in
2006 and 2007, council has had
to delay meetings until after the
elections were certified. This
year the clerk's office inadver-
tently scheduled the Sharky's
meeting during the gap.

Former Commissioner Mercier offers parting thoughts


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Outgoing Sarasota County
Commissioner Paul Mercier had
three things to talk about before
his term is over incorporating
Englewood as a city, the spring
training baseball situation and
evaluating his replacement,
Carolyn Mason.
Mercier, who is retiring after
eight years on the commission,
waded into these subjects before
a gathering of the Southwest
County Alliance of Homeowners
Associations Thursday morning
at Boca Royale Country Club.
On the topic of Englewood's
incorporation, Mercier was
enigmatic.
"There's two kinds of people
in Englewood," Mercier said.
"The people who like Engle-
wood, and the people who like
Englewood."


By that, he
said, he meant
that a distinct
division exists c s
between those
who want to
incorporate
the town and
those who
don't- and it Mercier
all comes down
to money.
"I think it would be a good
dialogue to have," Mercier said.
"The five county commissioners
have struggled with the Eng-
lewood issue, because we get
pressed by both sides."
An integral aspect of the dis-
cussion, he said, is the political
and concrete infrastructure
needed to make incorporation
happen.
"They would have to have
elections," Mercier said. "Water
and sewage must also (be


addressed). Would that define
Englewood? We've never defined
Englewood. Where is Engle-
wood?"
Mercier said that no one can
answer those questions better
than those who live there.
"We need to see the people
of Englewood come together to
try and figure out just what
they want Englewood to be," he
said.
Mercier was not certain Eng-
lewood's citizenry is up to the
complexities of incorporation.
"Maybe it won't make eco-
nomic sense to them," he said,
pointing out that once the
town incorporates and starts
collecting taxes, half of the
money will go to the school
board and 25 percent will go to
the county.
"My gut feeling is they'll want
to work (out something) to their
financial benefit," he said.


Bad agreement
Mercier next addressed the
Boston Red Sox's decision to
continue spring training in Lee
County instead of relocating to
Sarasota.
"I would love to have gotten
the Boston Red Sox here," Mer-
cier said. "However, I wasn't will-
ing to pay the price."
That price, according to the
Naples Daily News, will come to
around $80 million $20 million
coming from a full penny increase
in bed tax- which could keep the
Red Soxin Lee County for another
50 years. However, Lee Countywill
be required to:
Build the spring training fa-
cilities at a new site no later than
Dec. 1, 2012.
Prepare a preliminary cost
budget by Dec. 31
Prepare a preliminary fi-
nancing plan by Jan. 15, 2009
Select architects, engineers


and a construction firm by Feb.
1, 2009
Find a project site with at
least 80 acres by June 1, 2009
"I could not, would not, never
would sign that agreement," Mer-
cier said. "That agreement is a bad
agreement and is destined to fail."
Finally, Mercier had some
thoughts about Mason, the com-
missioner-elect who will soon
replace him in District 1. Mason is
slated to be sworn in Nov. 18.
"Hopefully, she'll bring a
sense of tranquility and some
life experience to the board,"
he said. "She's a good person. As
for her qualifications, it's a ques-
tion of whether she understands
what being a county commis-
sioner means. It's daunting at
times, because everyone has
such different expectations of
us. And I don't know if she's
ready for that."

Baseball bed tax increase strikes out as Red Sox deal falls through


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
Commission unanimous-
ly decided against adopt-
ing a fifth cent of tourist
development tax Tuesday,
half of which would have
gone for a spring training
facility for the Boston Red
Sox.
Instead, the commis-
sioners directed staff to


take a look at available
funds along with some
help from the city of
Sarasota and team contri-
butions to work out a
deal with the Baltimore
Orioles.
The quest to land the
Red Sox ended last Sat-
urday when Boston and
Lee County officials an-
nounced a deal had been
struck to keep the team in
the Fort Myers area.


After a public hearing
Tuesday that featured
speakers from the Sara-
sota Convention and Vis-
itors Bureau and various
members of the hotel
industry, the county com-
mission opted to table any
talk on an increase of the
TDT also known as the
bed tax and try to see
where talks with Baltimore
might lead.
Although the Orioles


are far from a marquee
name, they are the only
team currently looking for
a winter home, which,
despite their 11 consecu-
tive losing seasons, makes
them a desirable com-
modity. In fact, they've got
four cities vying for their
attention: Fort Myers, Vero
Beach, Fort Lauderdale
and Sarasota.
"I move we direct staff
to open serious negotia-


tions with the Orioles, using
a potentially equitable ar-
rangement from (currently
available bed tax money),
possible (Sarasota) city
contributions, and hope-
fully contributions from the
Orioles," said Com-
missioner Nora Patterson.
Commissioner Joe Bar-
betta, a staunch advocate
of the defunct Sox deal,
seconded Patterson's mo-
tion with some strict


guidelines.
"I would request an
exclusivity agreement be-
fore we get into serious
negotiations," Barbetta
said. "They're a free agent
right now, talking to four
different cities. The last
thing we want is we make
the offer then they run to
Vero Beach or Fort Myers
and say, 'This is what
Sarasota is offering.' "

"With a two-year hous-
ing supply, it would be great
to get deserving families in
houses, clean up neighbor-
hoods and utilize these
lovely homes sitting empty,"
she said. "There is a nursing
shortage and a teacher
shortage. We could put in-
centives in place and say we
will give preferential treat-
ment to nurses, beginning
teachers and firefighters to
come live here. Then we
could build the work force
we want."

Threats
Detert, 63, served for
eight years on the Sarasota
County School Board and
was then elected to four
terms in the Florida House
of Representatives, leaving


WEEKEND EDITION SATURDAY, NOV. 8, 2008


because of term limits. She
lost in the 2006 primary to
U.S. Rep.Vern Buchanan for
the District 13 Congres-
sional seat.
Detert said Wednesday
the time is right to begin
using new ideas.
"There's no need to rein-
vent the wheel," she said. "If
there's money and plans out
there, there's a way to make
it happen."
Detert said she will not
overlook Charlotte County
residents. She promised to
help "make more sense" of
the redistricting plan for
2010, saying she wants to
empower residents by cut-
ting up the district.
For several weeks lead-
ing up to the election, De-
tert had to set politics
aside after receiving death
threats through e-mails


from an unknown person
she calls a "very sophisticat-
ed hacker." The individual
sent an e-mail to Detert
supporters on Tuesday say-
ing people who vote for her
would "all" be shot. Both the
Sarasota and Charlotte
County sheriff's offices are
investigating.
The hacker sent another
e-mail Wednesday to De-
tert's friends. However, she
has taken steps to block the
sender from future e-mails.
"I heard from the FBI
(Election Day)," she said.
"It's a mess.
"I've never blamed this
on my opponent," she
added. "I think the threats
are something other than a
political race. My family has
been threatened. It's not
funny anymore."

EXOTIC from Page 1A

On Gasparilla Island,
staff devotes at least one
day per week to work on
removing exotics from a
specific area of the park.
Lach said exotic plants
and animals get about an
equal amount of attention
in the park. Removal of
both is typically financed
through grants.
"What we're trying to do
is just maintain the area of
what it was back when the
settlers first came to this
area," he said.
'A lot of it is just manual
labor going out there,
uprooting the plants, phys-
ically chopping them
down," Lach said.

Control only
Problems with upland


plants on Gasparilla Island
are the same all of Florida
faces: the Brazilian pepper
tree, the lead tree and the
Australian pines. The ani-
mals that prowl there are
typical, too: feral hogs, wild
coyotes and iguanas.
Such animals are not
only nuisances that cost
money, but they can also
push out or kill off native
species.
"The coyotes, they will
dig up a whole sea turtle
nest and eat all of the eggs,"
Lach said.
With effort, things can
get better. Take, for exam-
ple, Cayo Costa Island State
Park, which used to have a
major problem with wild
hogs. But state grants and
coordination with the U.S.
Department of Agriculture
have helped to curb the


population.
But even with progress,
fighting exotics in Florida is
a never-ending battle.
Cogon grass can often
be found along power lines
and roadways, and that's
because mowers and main-
tenance vehicles will inad-
vertently transport the
plant's seeds with them.
With such a successful
dispersal strategy, Sumpter
and Wildlands Conserva-
tion must make an effort to
clean each vehicle that
enters a property.
And even then, animals
and the wind will still help
to carry and spread exotics.
"You really can only
control these things,"
Sumpter said. "You never
can fully eradicate them."

WEEKEND EDITION SATURDAY, NOV. 8, 2008


RACE from Page 1A
McKeon finished with
4,717 votes (41.83 per-
cent), followed by Osmul-
ski with 3,752 (33.27 per-
cent) and Carlesimo at
2,808 (24.90 percent).
McKeon won the ab-
sentee vote with 1,681
votes; Carlesimo had 1,004
and Osmulski 960. Early
voters gave McKeon 1,116
votes, Osmulski 1,040 and
Carlesimo 669.
Unofficial results show-
ed a 79.87 percent election
turnout in the county.
The Carlesimo factor
Carlesimo's strong
showing led to discussion
about the outcome had it
been a two-way race.
Osmulski said the
three-way race might have
cost him the election


GAP from Page 1A
Charter flaw
The city's charter is the
source of the gap, said City
Attorney Bob Anderson.
One section states the terms
of office for council mem-
bers shall be three years,
while another section states
the terms commence upon
taking the oath.
To complicate matters,
a few years back the coun-
ty requested the city post-
pone its traditional swear-
ing-in until the elections
were certified to allow
time for provisional ballots
to be counted. The city
complied, and the gap was
created.
Fixing the charter lan-
guage would take a vote by
residents, something An-
derson said would require
a city charter amendment
that is cumbersome, time-
consuming and expensive.


SUIT from Page 1A
The problem, Mogen-
sen said, is that some of
those to be deposed are
city employees who were
told by City Attorney Bob
Anderson not to answer
her questions. To compel
answers Mogensen made
a motion to depose a
group of people she be-
lieves may have violated
the Sunshine Open Meet-
ings Law and Public Rec-
ords Law.
The city then respond-
ed that some of the depo-
sitions were unnecessary,
and wouldn't agree to set a
date for some of the depo-
sitions, she said. To date,
council members John
Moore and John Sim-
monds, both of whom are
defendants, have not been
deposed.
The suit was filed in
May.
Deadlines
Bennett didn't rule on
Mogensen's request to
extend the discovery peri-
od. Instead, he imposed a
series of dates to clarify the
issues and argue discov-
ery-related motions.
By end of the business
day on Nov. 10, Mogensen
is required to put into writ-
ing and deliver to Ander-
son a list of all the out-
standing e-mails and pub-
lic records that haven't
been turned over.
One of her requests is a
motion made in June to
forensically produce rec-
ords from Mayor Ed Mar-
tin's private computer.
While Martin's computer
was turned in long ago, the
e-mails that are on it
haven't been turned over
to the plaintiff's attorney.
Other personal-com-
puter e-mail public rec-
ords of former council
members are also out-


standing. And the 130,000
public records handed
over to Mogensen last
week, she said, can't be
opened on her computers.
By Nov. 12, Anderson is
required to respond to
Mogensen, in writing, list-
ing the responses for all
the defendants explaining
why certain records or
potential witnesses aren't
being made available.


because he and Carlesimo
had similar positions
throughout the campaign.
Osmulski would have
had to get more than two-
thirds of the votes that
went to Carlesimo in order
to win.
Carlesimo agreed his
campaign swayed the
election.
"Perhaps naively, I
thought I was going to
win. I was getting good
reception everywhere I
went," he said.
"Had I known (the out-
come) a week ago, I would
have bowed out.
The election "was a lit-
tle more than I expected,
but not much more,"
Carlesimo said. "I was sur-
prised at how well orga-
nized (McKeon's) cam-
paign was. I was taken
aback by that."


"I think we can handle
this mechanically," said
Mayor Ed Martin, who
offered to follow Anderson's
suggestion simply don't
schedule any meetings dur-
ing that week each year.
Other council members
suggested closing the gap.
"(I)t might be appropri-
ate to fix this," said Moore.
"Do the charter amend-
ment," Tacy said. "It's ab-
surd to have such stupidity
in our charter. I really
think you need to put it on
the ballot next year. Let's
have logic in the charter ...
not illogic."
No new date was set to
consider a settlement offer
negotiated between The
Pier Group, which owns
Sharky's, and CityAttorney
Bob Anderson.

venicegondolier.com


Bennett scheduled a
Nov. 19 hearing to address
those and any other out-
standing discovery-related
motions, at which time he
could extend the discovery
period or make other rul-
ings.
Gone fishing ?
Anderson called Mogen-
sen's discovery requests a
"fishing expedition" and
encouraged the judge to
stick with the Dec. 1 trial
date.
"These are tactics to
delay. It's a fishing expedi-
tion ... it's a smoke screen"
designed to inflate attor-
ney fees, he said.
"If they can't prove it
now, they won't be able to
do it in six months. This is
a huge distraction," An-
derson said.
"They talk about doing
it (discovery), but they're
not actually doing it," ar-
gued Hunter Carol of Mat-
thews Eastmoore, Moore's
attorney.
"I cannot put a trial on
without discovery without
committing malpractice,"
Mogensen said.
This trial, she said, is
about accessing public rec-
ords "and they are objecting
to giving us access to public
records."
There is no longer a
need to expedite the case
now that the computers
have been turned over,
Mogensen argued.
She also objected that
the four attorneys present
(and a fifth via telephone)
were reinforcing each
other's arguments to go
forward.
"There is no reason not
to let go of the December
date," she told the judge.
"They are putting a squeeze
play on me."
"I have to allow com-
plete discovery," Bennett
said. "It doesn't make sense
to invite appellate review"
even though, he said, "it's
inevitable in this case."
"It should be clear I'm
going to take over the
management of discov-
ery," he said. "I may not get
my wish ... but we will get
a fair trial."

Ironic
The same well-oiled
campaign network that
voted in three slow-growth
candidates last year work-
ed this year to get McKeon
elected.
The network, consist-
ing of residents, neighbor-
hood organizations and
the Venice Taxpayers
League, helped get out the
McKeon vote, and showed
up at candidate forums to
support their candidate
and pepper his opponents
with leading questions.
Citizens for Quality
Government, a local polit-
ical action committee
consisting of longtime res-
idents, business owners
and service club mem-
bers, didn't endorse a can-
didate this year.
"Nobody asked us,"
CQG President C.J. Fish-


man said.
Besides, he said, "there
were good candidates run-
ning. That's what we do -
try to encourage good
candidates."
Early on, Council
Member John Moore re-
quested CQG's endorse-
ment, but it became
moot when no one chal-
lenged his seat.
Fishman pointed out
that city council is now
facing the same criticism
leveled previously at the
CQG.
"For the last eight
years the Venice Tax-
payers League and Venice
Neighborhoods Coalition
painted the CQG as this
group of money-hungry
individuals who are con-
trolling council and buy-
ing their way into elec-
tions, and that was just


not factually correct," he
said. "There was no evi-
dence to support that
(claim). Everything we've
done was quite transpar-
ent.
"Now the people in
office are doing what they
accused us of doing. I
find that very ironic.
Shift
Tuesday's vote solidi-
fied a shift in Venice poli-
tics by creating a super-
majority of slower-growth
council members, who
now claim five out of
seven seats.
Moore had been the
swing vote on many densi-
ty and height issues since
last year's council election
in which three new mem-
bers took office.
Some are calling Mc-
Keon's lack of a majority

proof of dissatisfaction
with city council's recent
performance. McKeon tie-
d his candidacy to the
policies of Mayor Ed Mar-
tin, Ernie Zavodnyik and
Sue Lang, who were voted
in last year.
All the candidates said
residents were discour-
aged with the negative dis-
cussions of airport opera-
tions, and more lately with
the ongoing Sunshine law-
suit.
It touched this year's
council election after
Osmulski and Carlesimo
called for McKeon to with-
draw from the race when
McKeon's e-mails were
subpoenaed in connec-
tion with the litigation. He
is not a party to it.

STAFF WRITER

A dramatic vote swing
from late-counted Man-
atee County ballots appar-
ently has pushed Larry
Eger past Adam Tebrugge
in the race for 12th Judicial
Circuit Public Defender
office.
The 51-year-old Repub-
lican Larry Eger topped
Tebrugge, the Democratic
candidate, with hefty back-
ing from Manatee County.
Eger collected 168,353 votes
total compared with
165,292 Tuesday bywinning
50.5 percent of the vote.
Manatee County gave
Eger a 9,148-vote edge to
overcome a 5,183-vote
deficit in Sarasota County
and a 903-vote shortfall in
DeSoto County.
"I can finally celebrate,"
Eger said Thursday. "This
is the longest 'jury deliber-
ation' I've ever sat through
in my life."
The position covers
Sarasota, Manatee and


DeSoto counties.
Results posted at the
end of Tuesday night's bal-
loting showed Tebrugge
leading by about 5,200
votes. After 40,750 late
Manatee County ballots
were added, however, the
advantage swung over to
Eger, who has practiced in
Manatee for more than 15
years.
Tebrugge could not be
reached for comment
Thursday.
Sarasota County Super-
visor of Elections Kathy
Dent said votes won't be
official until Tuesday.
The public defender's
office represents defen-
dants who don't have
enough money to hire
their own attorney. In-
cumbent Elliot Metcalfe
created the opening in the
Public Defender's Office
when he announced his
retirement effective De-
cember, ending 32 years in
the office.

The Sarasota County
Sheriff's office arrested
Marekllczuk, 49, 600 block
Shore Road, Nokomis, in
connection with the rob-
bery of the Synovous
Bank, 101 Center Road,
Venice,
Monday.
The
investi-
gation
into the
robbery
is con-
tinuing.
Anyone
with in- Ilczuk
forma-
tion regarding the incident
should contact the Sara-
sota County Sheriff's
Office District III Criminal
Investigations Bureau at
(941) 861-1707 or leave
anonymous information
on the Crime Stoppers Tip
Line at (941) 366-8477;
online at www.sarasota
crimestoppers.com; or by
texting "TIP109" and a
message to CRIMES
(274637).
Motorcyclist killed
Charges are pending in
a crash in Sarasota that left
the operator of a motorcy-
cle dead.
According to a Florida
Highway Patrol release, on
Saturday at about 4:33
p.m. Eugene B. Swan, 85,
of Osprey was driving a
1999 Oldsmobile north-
bound on Beneva Road
approaching Wilkinson
Road. Edward G. Kamin-
ski, 54, the operator of the
motorcycle, was south-
bound on Beneva. Both
drivers had a green light.
Swan made a left turn
in front of Kaminski, who
struck the right rear quar-
ter panel of the Olds-
mobile, the report states.
Kaminski, who was not
wearing a helmet, was
thrown from the motorcy-
cle, which overturned sev-
eral times.
He was transported to
Bayfront Hospital but did
not survive.
The crash is still under
investigation.

Booze bust
While on patrol, Venice
police officer Billy Masters
observed a red convertible
vehicle traveling south on


U.S. 41 on its rim. He con-
ducted a traffic stop and
made contact with the dri-
ver, Robin Tressler, 43, 700
block Pond Lily Way, Ven-
ice.
Tressler told Masters
that she was just at Marker
4 restaurant and noticed
three males smashing the
place up. She said they
took flight upon her ar-
rival, and she took several
bottles of liquor to keep
them safe. Masters radio-
ed a unit to respond to
Marker 4 to investigate
this claim.
When officers arrived
on the scene they noticed
the front glass door was
smashed and found bro-
ken liquor bottles and beer
bottles on the floor along
with a computer register
and other items that were
broken. They also noticed
the taps of beer and wine
were in the "on" position
and the floors were wet
with beer, wine and liquor.
An investigation reveal-
ed that Tressler is ac-
quainted with an owner of
the restaurant and was
involved in an argument
with him earlier in the day.
During the roadside inves-
tigation it was determined
Tressler was intoxicated
and she was placed under
arrest for DUI, burglary,
theft and criminal mis-
chief. Bond was set at
$11,620.
Warrant executed
On Tuesday, Circuit
Judge Robert Bennett
signed a search warrant
for a dwelling in the 700
block of Laurel Ave., Ven-
ice.
At about 11:26 a.m.,
members of the Venice
Police Department Detec-
tive Bureau with the assis-
tance of the patrol division
executed the warrant.
Christopher Siringer,
31, of the Laurel Avenue
address, was arrested for
possession of drug para-
phernalia, and Elden
Hooper, 39, 700 block Kent
Road, Venice, was arrested
for possession of a con-
trolled substance (Oxyco-
done). Siringer's bond was
set at $120, Hooper's at
$1,000.
Additional charges are
pending.

OPINION


OUR VIEW


An open letter to our government officials


People usually make their wish lists
a little closer to the holiday sea-
son, but we thought we'd submit
ours while the people who can grant it
are still basking in the glow of their elec-
tion victories.
First, though, a reminder: We check-
ed the numbers, and none of you won
unanimously. In pretty much all the
races someone else got at least one-
third of the votes; some of you didn't
even get a majority.
We point that out lest you forget that
you represent all of your constituents
even though a lot of them didn't vote for
you. To the extent you have a mandate,
it's to serve the common good to the
best of your ability.
Which brings us to our one big wish:
Be the representative you told us you'd
be.
No, you didn't sign anything, and we
know the economy is playing havoc


with government planning. But all we
had to go on when we voted was what
you told us you would do if elected:
work hard, run a tight ship, be fair,
emphasize cooperation and problem-
solving and avoid partisan wrangling.
If there's a word to summarize what
voters are looking for, it might be lead-
ership. That's always the case, of course,
but it's needed even more when times
are this tough. Specifically:
Be innovative we know the
results of doing it the way we've always
done it; find someone or somewhere
that's doing it better and give that
method a try. This is the time for
change, right?
Be compassionate keeping the
budget balanced means looking for
new revenue sources and finding things
to cut. Be especially wary of anything
that would impose a burden on those
who can least afford it, whether it's high-


er fees or the loss of programs. Leg-
islators, don't push your money problems
down to the counties and cities and make
them do your dirty work for you.
Be inclusive don't overlook the
growth in South County; if you think we
had an inferiority complex before, try
shorting the most populated area in the
county. And put aside party labels; the
problems we have don't recognize them
and neither should you. Build bridges
now instead of hoping there's no pay-
back if the Democratic resurgence turns
the tables.
Be accountable mistakes will
happen. Own up to them without being
prodded, fix them and move on. Re-
member the chief lesson of the Water-
gate scandal: The cover-up is worse
than the original misdeed. Especially,
don't do anything that will get your
agency into litigation. Money is too
scarce to be shoveling it at lawyers.


Be grown-ups even though some
of you may have won by being better
mud-slingers than your opponents,
we're tired of that. We really are. Name-
calling didn't solve any problems on the
playground and it surely isn't going to
get us out of the mess we're in now. If
you want to get re-elected (unfortu-
nately, it never seems to be too soon to
think about that), do your job, run on
your record and everything will come
out just fine.
Be green keep the environment
in mind, for its own sake and because it
makes good economic sense. (And
please pick up your signs ... now.)
This may seem like a daunting list,
but it's not. It's really just a summary of
your campaign platforms. We merely
wanted to let you know we were paying
attention and plan to hold you to them.
Remember, it was your idea to run
for office.


Fix the Social



Security gap


LORI K. PARHAM
GUEST COLUMNIST


In nine months before
October 2008, Americans
lost an estimated $2 tril-
lion from their retirement
savings. Studies show that
only about half of Amer-
icans participate in em-
ployer-sponsored savings
plans. And, most have less
than $35,000 in savings.
While we can make
changes to improve and
encourage retirement sav-
ings, the current situation
makes Social Security even
more critical in the coming
decades, particularly with
the expected influx of baby
boomers now nearing re-
tirement age. But experts
predict that during the
next 75 years, Social Se-
curity Revenues will fall
short of expenses by 1.7
percent.
For Social Security to
remain on the soundest
footing, that gap must be
closed. Several reform op-
tions have been proposed.
Each has pros and cons,
but it's good to openly de-
bate and discuss the possi-
ble solutions. Change is
necessary to ensure that
generations of Americans
have access to the pro-
gram.
Let's examine two of the
current reform options.
One proposal would be
to raise the ceiling and col-
lect payroll taxes on 90
percent of all earnings.
Currently Social Security
taxes are capped on the
first $102,000 in earnings.
About 17 percent of all
earnings are exempt and
about 7 percent of Amer-
icans earn above the cap.
Gradually moving back
to collecting payroll taxes
on 90 percent of earnings
means a person would be
taxed on Social Security
earnings up to $175,000.
Another proposal would
be to remove the ceiling
entirely and tax all earn-
ings.
Those who like this
option say raising the cap
would return us to the 90-
percent goal and go a long
way toward reducing the
revenue shortfall. Accord-


ing to estimates by the
Social Security Admin-
istration's Office of the
Actuary, raising the cap
would cut the shortfall by
35 to 50 percent.
But on the flip side, rais-
ing the cap would weaken
the traditional link be-
tween contributions and
benefits, because the high-
est-paid wouldn't get
much higher benefits.
And, few of us like the idea
of paying higher taxes.
According to the Office
of the Actuary, raising the
payroll tax rate from the
current 12.4 percent (6.2
percent of earnings and
employer match) to 13.4
percent would cut the gap
by 50 to 100 percent.
This is a clear-cut way
to bolster Social Security
for the long run. But oppo-
nents of this proposal
argue the payroll tax is re-
gressive and unfairly bur-
dens low-wage workers.
Employers also object to
having their share of taxes
raised, saying the move
might force them to cut
jobs.
These are only two pro-
posals. Other options in-
clude raising the retirement
age, adjust the cost of living
to reflect the true rate of
inflation, investing part of
the Social Security trust
fund in securities or reduc-
ing benefits for future
retirees while protecting
lower-income recipients.
Finding bipartisan solu-
tions means simply that
lawmakers in Washington
must compromise. The
common thread in all of
the proposals is that the
Social Security program
must be strengthened.
In order to find biparti-
san solutions our elected
officials have to talk about
all the proposals, all the
options. They must start
with common ground and
debate and find compro-
mise.
Our job is to ensure that
elected officials know we
expect this of them. But
the first step for us is to be
educated on the proposed
solutions and the impact
of each.

posals click on resources,

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



Help save animals in your back yard


Editor:
The Wildlife Center of Venice is the only facility in
Sarasota and parts of Charlotte, Manatee and Lee coun-
ties that rescues, rehabilitates and releases injured, ill
and orphaned wildlife.
Wildlife patients includes not only birds but also
mammals, more than 3,000 so far this year. The center is
not open to the public. The wildlife are not put on dis-
play. Their goal is to return the animals back into the wild
with as little imprinting as possible.
The center is run by two amazing people with one
additional rehabber and 80 volunteers. Students volun-
teer and earn community service hours for the Bright
Future programs. Scouts build aviaries. Display boards
are taken to organizations and school groups to educate
the public. This weekend alone, 40 animals have been
admitted into the center. This now makes three bald
eagles on site. It is not unusual to have 300-plus animals
being cared for in a week.
This center is an integral part of the community, but it
desperately needs your help. It is in dire need of funds. It
does not receive federal or state funding. It is a nonprof-
it organization, depending completely on contributions.
If the center has to close, there will be no one to call to
take the orphaned baby squirrel, the tortoise hit by a car,
the pelican caught with a fish hook and line or the bald
eagles that can't fly.


Is the Statue of
Liberty forgotten?
Editor:
I reflect upon my high
school days right in the
heart of the melting pot of
the "Valley of Decision,"
where immigrants were
the norm.
The Valley was dotted
with numerous church
steeples of various church
denominations. That was
so American, but unfortu-
nately people have forgot-
ten that our country was
built by immigrants. You


gates shall stand a mighty
woman with a torch
whose flame is impris-
oned lightning and her
name Mother of Exiles.
From her beacon-hand
glows world-wide wel-
come; her mild eyes com-
mand the air-bridged har-
bor that twin cities frame.
'Keep ancient lands your
storied pomp!' cries she
with silent lips. 'Give me
your tired, your poor, your
huddled masses yearning
to breathe free, the
wretched refuse of your
teeming shore. Send these,
the homeless, tempest-
tost to me, I lift my lamp
beside the golden door!'"
And there you have it.


Land
'nice


Heservations
Lucy Koitsch about the Reserve
Venice Editor:


can't shut off the faucet.
If you haven't read the
inscription at the Statue of
Liberty, I suggest you do
so, as there is no more
memorable statement of
the American dream than
the promise of safe haven
for people who have only
known despotism, terror,
danger and despair.
Here it is:
"Not like the brazen
giant of Greek fame, with
conquering limbs astride
from land to land; here at
our sea-washed sunset


Our government does-
n't run our country, it's run
by the banking industry
through a private entity
called the Federal Reserve.
Our government has al-
lowed itself to be manipu-
lated by the banking in-
dustry alias the Federal
Reserve since its incep-
tion in 1913, and few legis-
lators are aware of its
insidious tentacles.
Those congressmen
who are unaware are pro-
tective of it. Look at the
immoral policy of home
mortgage interest perpe-
trated on those who have


the least (30-year mort-
gages). Over the 30 years,
their payments will equal
three times the amount
borrowed and the banks
collect excessive interest
the first 10 years; even
after 10 years of payments,
the principal still resem-
bles the original loan.
The holders of all these
mortgages were making
beaucoup money a few
years ago, all interest. They
were fat and happy until
the people couldn't afford
the payments. Instead of
conserving the interest
they collected, they paid
outrageous bonuses and
salaries and now the tax-
payer (you and me) must
bail them out by order of
our elected Congressmen.
Let's get rid of the
Federal Reserve today and
have Congress establish
fair-credit interest guide-
lines for home buyers and
establish reserves that
banks must maintain so
those outrageous salaries
will be a thing of the past.
Our Treasury was creat-
ed to "coin money, regu-
late the value thereof," not
the Federal Reserve. Our
country will not recover
our past greatness and
opportunity until the
Federal Reserve is abol-
ished and our Treasury
takes over our money.

LET 'EM HAVE IT: IF YOU CROSSED PARTY LINES TO VOTE FOR ANY CANDIDATES
THIS YEAR. TELL US WHY. CALL US AT 207-1111.



Ay, there's the rub


Roughed up. Approximately 14 years ago Capri Isles
Boulevard was repaved. I told the contractor at that time
that what they were putting down was awfully rough. He
agreed, but he said the city is getting exactly what it was
paying for. Now, after 14 years, what you need to travel
Capri Isles Boulevard is an off-road vehicle. I suggest the
city replace Capri Isles Boulevard's road signs with those
reading "Washboard Boulevard" because I know that
they only repave streets like Tarpon Center Drive, even
though they don't need it.


No parking. This is
about the letter to the edi-
tor from Jennifer Bruce of
Venice and the Epiphany
Cathedral signs, "Epiph-
any services only." Obvi-
ously there's not enough
room for people who are
attending services when
people attending the festi-
val violate the signs and go
on in anyhow, and that has
still been a problem even
though the signs are there.
I don't think that Epiphany
would not open its doors
and welcome the public
into its building and spiri-
tual life, just the parking
lot.
Gone. Things that ain't
in Venice no more. They
disappeared with hardly a
tear shed. We had our own
Best Western Motel on the
beach. Decades-old Smit-
ty's Restaurant by the Ven-
ice Avenue Bridge briefly
became the Landmark
until it went dark several
years ago. The Landmark
and other establishments
had busy dance floors. We
had the Golden Apple
Dinner Theater at the re-
sort motel on U.S. 41
North. When our gambling
boat disappeared, it took a
nice restaurant with a
canal view with it. Fra-
ternal organizations once
sited at the Venice Avenue
Bridge are now in the
boondocks. Several large
social organizations like
the lively Venice Opera
Guild have folded. And
wow! All this happened
during an era when city
council was viewed as
growth at any cost.
Unappreciated. The
person who called from
Pinebrook and who wants
a larger airport should not
speak for his neighbors.
There are many people
who support Sue Lang's
concept of the Venice air-
port. My home borders the
city and I constantly hear
the noise of the planes,
which interferes with the
town motto of "living in
paradise." It's especially
frustrating when flight
lessons are given and the
planes circle around and
around and around the
same homes. Venice
should keep the airport at
its present size so that it
blends in with our small,
charming community.
Thank you, Sue Lang, for
representing people and
not special interests. It's
too bad that special inter-
ests can't meet us halfway
instead of trying to take
over our community. Their
loud, sarcastic, bullying
tactics are not appreciated.
Out of place. We had a
bishop of a local diocese
saying verbally and in
print to vote against those
candidates who support a
law handed down by the
Supreme Court of our
country. They don't neces-
sarily agree with the law,
but until it is rescinded,
the law is the law, and they
are law-abiding as we all
should be. That is insur-
rection, which is also
against the law, and he is in
charge of a pretty large
gathering. You overstep-
ped your authority, Mr.
Political Bishop, and you
should be held to task, but
you won't. That's the sys-
tem that needs to be
changed.
Republican. I hear so
many comments about
our government, and so

many comments are in-

How about the
college bubble?
Editor:
Well, we've gone through
a stock market bubble, then
a housing bubble, and now
a financial bubble. Now it's
time for the college bubble
to burst and return us to
rational educational costs.
In 1950 it was possible
for students to pay most
college costs with a sum-
mer job. In 1970 it was still
possible. Now students
leave college with enor-
mous loans to pay, and
parents with inadequate
retirement savings. Even
so, the public and govern-
ments are asked to donate
to colleges to keep costs
low. Low?
Since 1980 the real cost
of a college education has
about tripled. Personnel
costs are cited as a major
factor. But isn't this be-
cause schools seek presti-
gious professors instead of
instructors who can com-
municate basics to under-
graduate students?
More-elaborate equip-
ment needs are also cited.


planned anything for Con-
stitution Week. Our gov-
ernment has passed legis-
lation that it should be cel-
ebrated. I don't know
where we go if we don't
educate our children and
ourselves. God help us.
Step up. Again, Our
Mother's House, a home
for homeless and unwed
mothers, is in dire need of
volunteers. Hey, all you
right-to-life men and wom-
en out there, give some real
support, not just hot air.
Nailed. I'm just waiting
to hear that the Gondolier
Sun is going to run a story
about how Judge Moore
has countersued Andrea
Mogenson, and his lawyer
has nailed her hide to the
wall. Next week, several
more countersuits are go-
ing to arrive at her office.
EDITOR'S NOTE: There is
no countersuit. Moore has
filed a motion seeking an
early judgment in his favor in
the Sunshine lawsuit, and
several other defendants
think his arguments would
apply to them as well. His
motion has not yet been
heard by the judge.

Paradise deserves a smile


DON HAY
GUEST COLUMNIST



Gloom and doom. We
are surrounded by stories
of how bad things are in
the world today. All the
"talking heads" tell us that
it is bad and it is going to
get worse.
The front page of al-
most all newspapers is bad
news. Today even good
news is bad news.
Recently the price of oil
was more than $100 per
barrel; that was bad news.
Now the price of oil is well
below $100 per barrel. You
guessed it; that is bad
news.
Then there is the elec-
tion. It is no wonder that
we are all in a funk.
It is said that on any
given day there are about
12 minutes of news. The
rest is just filler. Not that


many years ago, the news
came on at 5 p.m. and 11
p.m. and it was 30 minutes
and that included weather
and sports. Now it is 24/7.
Maybe we have too much
"news" today.
Now, I am not saying
things are rosy. People are
out of work and losing
their homes, the markets
(real estate and stock) are
in the tank and we are in a
financial/political crisis.
There are still a lot of
good things happening
out there. We just have to
stop and look for them
because no one is going to
point them out for us. That
is especially true for those
of us lucky enough to live
in the Venice area.
Here's my challenge for
all of us: Turn off the tube
(TV and computer), set
the paper aside for later
and take a moment to
truly think for yourself. I'm
guessing you will find that
things are not as bad as
they seem.
We have been in this sit-
uation before and have
come out of it stronger
than ever.
Most people who need
to work have a job. We still
have the highest standard
of living in the world. And


oh yeah, we live in par-
adise.
Go for a walk in this
beautiful weather. Might I
suggest the Venetian Wa-
terway Park or the Venice
Arboretum?
Want to help to local
economy? Go out to eat at
one of our great local
restaurants, have some
friends over for dinner and
buy the steaks (or tube
steaks) at a local meat
market, shop at a farmers
market. "Do the avenue,"
take in a show at the
Venice Theatre or volun-
teer for a project you feel
good about.
The mission of Venice
Area Beautification Inc. is
to make the Venice area a
more beautiful place to
live work and play. The
best way I know of to make
our home more beautiful
is to put a smile on peo-
ple's faces.
We can come through
this challenging time if we
focus on what is right
about this world instead of
dwelling on what is wrong.
Smile!

dent of Venice Area

But many courses use only
books. Perhaps the biggest
factor is the growing de-
mand by students and
their parents for fancier
rooms, student activity
areas and sports teams.
By 2008 we have per-
haps reached the point
where, for the average un-
dergraduate student, the
cost of money and time
spent in college can never
be recovered. Parents and
students have confused
wants with needs, and col-
lege managements have
been glad to accommo-
date them by confusing
prestige with excellence.
Hopefully, the econom-
ic downturn will force an
end to this foolishness.

Editor:
It is shameful that our
country ignores the citi-
zens who fell prey to
greedy lenders, and the
government instead tries


to bail out the additional
greedy corporations.
Assistance for the peo-
ple, not the corporations.

WEEKEND EDITION SATURDAY, NOV. 8, 2008


Residents give input to regional transportation planners


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

Should long-distance
and short-distance rail
dominate a regional trans-
portation master plan that
connects South County
with major destinations to
the north?
Would express buses be
more popular than rail to
link residents to the Tam-
pa Bay area?


Would less-expensive
options be more appropri-
ate during these tough
economic times, especial-
ly if they can be imple-
mented more quickly?
The Florida Legislature
created the Tampa Bay
Area Regional Transpor-
tation Authority in 2007 to
answer such questions.
Representatives of
TBARTA solicited input
about these issues during


a workshop Thursday at
North Port City Hall.
The master plan, which
TBARTA will present to the
public in February, will
likely be a hybrid of three
plans presented Thursday.
The first plan, called the
Regional Emphasis Net-
work, consists of 97 miles
of short-distance rail, 125
miles of long-distance rail,
26 miles of express bus
service and 180 miles of


rapid-transit bus service.
The second plan, called
the Planning Emphasis
Network, consists of 101
miles of short-distance
rail, 117 miles of express
bus service, 68 miles of
express bus service on
managed lanes and 142
miles of rapid-transit bus
service.
The third plan, called
the Funding and Financ-
ing Emphasis Network,


calls for 49 miles of short-
distance rail, 112 miles of
express bus service, 181
miles of express bus ser-
vice on managed lanes, 35
miles of exclusive lanes
and 85 miles of rapid-tran-
sit bus service.
Workshop attendee
Mark Klingel of North Port
said light and heavy rail
should be strongly consid-
ered.
"Most people live here.


They don't work here,"
said Klingel, who com-
mutes to work in Sarasota
via Interstate 75 and
Fruitville Road. "A high-
speed rail would allow
them to go to work quickly
and use buses and other
rail to move around within
the city."

No. 11 Joe lorio holds the Ball as No.13, Ed Delahanty, kicks in a field goal as an extra point in the second quarter
of Friday night's game against North Port.


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice High School's 56-13
win over North Port High School
wasn't quite over when running
back Dri Archer ran 68 yards for
a touchdown on the game's first
play.
North Port wasn't down for
the count whenVenice took a 14-
0 lead on a 2-yard Trey Burton
keeper a little more than a
minute into the contest.
After Bobcats running back
Bryce Johnston took it 55 yards
for a score three minutes into the
game, Venice answered with a
blocked extra point and another
Archer touchdown run this
one from 29 yards out. Class 5As
fifth-ranked team led 21-6 with
7:40 left in the first quarter. It was
over.
"I told (Venice head coach)
John (Peacock) thanks," said
North Port head coach Sascha
Hyer. "He could have kept his
kids in but he pulled his kids. He
came to play, he came to win."
Venice (9-0) left the starters in
for the first half and headed for
the locker room with a 49-6 half-
time lead. Archer finished his
night with 227 yards and four
touchdowns on 15 carries. Bur-
ton ended his game with six car-

ed for 44 yards.
"The offense came out and
they were clicking on all cylin-
ders," Peacock said. "Dri Archer
had some nice runs and the
offensive line blocked well, the
fullback blocked well, the tight
end blocked well. It was a good
night."

The second half was all for the
Venice reserves, finally getting
some significant time on the
field in the ninth game of the
season.
Showing his stuff
The only player other than
Burton to attempt a pass this
season has been Justin Grant on
a double pass back to the quar-
terback. On his first throw of the
year, backup quarterback Joe
Iorio connected with wideout
Joey Gaither for 34 yards. A.J.
Rotella, who joined the team at
the end of the junior varsity sea-
son, also went 1-for-2 for 12
yards.
But it was freshman running
back Jihad Williams who nearly
stole the show. The recent addi-
tion from the freshmen squad
carried the ball seven times for
55 yards and a touchdown -
Venice's only score of the second
half.
"Jihad Williams showed some
stuff tonight," Peacock said. "We
had all young guys blocking on
the offensive line so it was good
for him to get reps and see some
action."
Venice's defense held North
Port (1-8) to 120 rushing yards
on 25 attempts. The Bobcats
completed four of six passes for
just 18 yards.
Johnson led the Bobcats'
offense with 70 yards and a
touchdown on six carries. Tail-
back Alex Portee ran eight times
for 59 yards.
North Port's second score
came on a 10-yard strike from
Stevie Lockhart to Antwan
Randall in the third quarter.
After the Indians took their
21-6 lead, they never let up.

Indians wallop


Northeast, advance


to regional semifinals


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

To understand the mentality
of the Venice High School vol-
leyball team, you have to watch
Dorothy Rahal.
The junior outside hitter
goes 100 miles per hour, 100
percent of the time. Even well
into the Indians' 25-9, 25-7, 25-
5 Region 5A-3 quarterfinal rout
of St. Petersburg Northeast
High School Wednesday night,
Rahal celebrated every point
like it was the match-winner in
the state championship.
"It's in your face," Rahal said.
"Not to be mean or anything,
but it's like, 'hey, I'm here. Play.
Play against me."
Nobody on the other side of
the net could match up with
Rahal, even though she stands
at a mere 5-foot-6. She finished
the match with a team-high 13
kills, even though she sat out
much of the third game as
Venice's bench players came in
for mop-up duty.
"The fact that I can still put
the ball on the ground gets me
excited," she said.
That kind of excitement is
vital to a team heading deeper
into the state tournament.
Against competition like
Northeast (15-10), it can be
tough to keep your focus -
even in a win-or-go-home sce-
nario.
"We're trying to get the ball
rolling," Venice head coach
Brian Wheatley said. "It's
important for us to play good
against a team like that. It's dif-
ficult to beat a team by those
scores because your mentality

has to continually be 'don't let
down, don't let down, keep
pushing, keep pushing, keep
pressing."'
Venice (21-8) never let up.
Although Rahal and junior
Jillian Allen (7 kills) led the way
on offense, defense was the key
to this beat down. The Vikings
scored a meager total of 20
points in three games thanks in
part to the Indians' 57 team
digs.
Junior Emily Daniels and
sophomore Autumn Duyn
were the defensive leaders with
12 and 10 digs, respectively.
Rahal (9), junior setter Taylor
Capasso (8) and Allen (7)
weren't far behind.
Venice's win Wednesday
night in the Teepee advances
them into the Region 5A-3
semifinals. The Indians will
host St. Petersburg Lakewood
High School (22-4) Tuesday at 7
p.m.
"Playoffs are like eating an
elephant," Wheatley said.
"You've just got to take one bite
at a time. That's the way we're
approaching playoffs, one
match at a time."

CROSS COUNTRY


Venice girls make


regionals, barely


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

After a slow start on a slow
course at the District 3A-6 cham-
pionship meet Friday, the Venice
High School girls cross country
team needed to make up some
ground.
Enter Lucy Horton. The Venice
junior dug in her heels down the
final 100 yards of the 3.1-mile
race at Veterans' Park in Lehigh
Acres, passing two opposing run-
ners along the way. The differ-
ence in 59th and 56th place was
just enough for Horton to push
Venice into sixth place and on to
the Region 3A-3 meet next week
in Estero.
"Coach (Brenda Clark) told
me I needed to pass those peo-
ple," Horton said. "So I just
sprinted as hard as I could and
passed two of them."
It's not often that the fifth run-
ner to finish saves the day for the
team. By the time Horton neared
the finish line, the Indians were
in danger of failing to qualify
anyone for regionals. Kelly White
finished first for Venice in 17th
place. Cynthia Melendez-Flynn


came in next at 19th. Only the
top-six teams and top 15 indi-
viduals advance to the next level.
Now White, Melendez-
Flynn, Rosa Canas (30th),
Amberose Courville (41st) and,
yes, Horton all get to run in the
regional meet Thursday at
Estero Community Park.
Katie Russo of Fort Myers
High School captured the indi-
vidual district championship in
19:56.38. Fort Myers also nabbed
the team title.
In boys action, Venice placed
12th out of 14 teams and didn't
qualify any individuals, but head
coach Jason Potter isn't discour-
aged.
The Indians lose only two
seniors from the varsity squad
and return a ton of youth for next
year. Potter has said before that
the future is very bright for
Venice cross country.
"I'm proud of what they did
this year and excited about next
year," he said.
Charlotte High School won
the boys team title and Trent
Craig of Cypress Lake High
School won the individual
championship in 16:46.63.

Below, the dinner entree for yacht

room risotto and mixed vegetables.


When it comes to wild striped sea bass, catching them might be easier than cooking them.
"Striper" preparation was the challenge at this year's chef contest at the Venice Yacht Club.
In a variation on some of those "Iron Chef"-type shows on the food channel, Sarasota's University Club held a contest for i
area chefs seven years ago. Chefs at area yacht and country clubs that offer reciprocal dining are invited to enter.
For the first five years, the contest was held at Sarasota's University Club, VYC chef Marc Pegram said.
"It was started by Tim Nichols, the general manager, years ago," he said. "The real purpose was to have an inner-club
mixer between reciprocal clubs so members could meet each other."
Pegram won the contest three years ago.
"I called them and asked if I could take it on and keep it going," he said. "They wanted to do it one more year but said I
would do it the next year."
The next year when he moved the event to the Venice Yacht Club, he made a new rule that the winning chef could host the
event at his club the following year.
"This year I invited chefs from the Peace River to the Manatee River," he said. "They represented about 12 clubs that have
reciprocal dining arrangements.
'All these guys are good friends of mine."
Pegram said he likes to have six chef entrants because every year, at least one may have to drop out for some emergent- \
at his club. This year, he lost two chefs and one judge just three days before the contest.
"Even though they commit, things come up in their kitchens at the last minute," Pegram said. "It
happens." 2 1

r ong Cove is a sophisticated
coastal look that is equally at home
on the shore or further inland. It finds
its provenance in traditional forms, but
is given a casual update with its two
finishes. The Shell finish has texture
and depth. The Midnight finish is
almost black, in reality a very dark
brown with a low sheen and deep
interest. They are complemented by
accent finishes for occasional pieces
that offer a splash of color: Coral,
Linen, Aquamarine and Moss.

ASK YOUR
AUDIOLOGIST





Dr. Noel Crosby, Au.D.
Q: Dr. Crosby, You discussed the
LACE program in your last arti-
cle, could you tell us more about
this?
A: Even people with normal hearing
can be poor listeners. Good listening
skills are one of the essential com-
ponents in effective communication.
Other components of the program
include rapid thought processing,
auditory memory, use of language
skills and interactive strategies.
Additionally, the confidence that
what you thought you heard was
what was actually spoken is vital.
These abilities can be damaged both
by hearing loss and by the natural
aging process. LACE is designed to
enhance the ability to communicate
by training the brain to best utilize
these skills.
LACE works on Windows XP, Vista
and Apple OSX 10.4 or newer and
now on home DVD players.

Cartoonist offers hints for caregivers


For Better or for Worse creator shares personal insights on caring
for an older relative.


FROM NAPSA

Good and bad things happen to
everyone. For Better or For Worse creator
Lynn Johnston brings the good and bad
times of her life into her comic strip,
such as the strokes suffered by her
Grandpa Jim character.


"My mother-in-law actually suffered
the stroke," Johnston tells Caring Today
magazine. "I wanted to explore the con-
cerns of the caregiver, so I wanted the
stroke to be manageable yet extremely
frustrating. My own neurologist is a
stroke specialist, so ... we discussed the
concerns that follow strokes."


Through experience, Johnston gained
greater respect for those in her care. Her
father-in-law, for instance. "He was a joy
to be with. I admired him for his ability
to endure the illness without complaint."
She also learned caregiver lessons. "A
caregiver really cannot complain," she
notes. "You bear your difficulties with
silence often. Yet you really are impris-
oned along with the person you're caring
for. Unless other family members take
on some responsibility, you don't get out.


Your entire life becomes your home and
whomever it is you are caring for."
Her advice for caregivers?
Find someone you can talk to who
will listen without judgment.
Get time to yourself.
Hire trained help. "One person can-
not do it all without losing some quality
of life, if not all of it," she insists.

view with Lynn Johnston, go to www.
caringtodaycom.

CHEFS from Page 1B
points for flavor. We judges felt there were
too many ingredients and the vanilla fla-
vor overpowered the fish.
"He only had time for a quick poach-
ing for you judges," Pegram said about
the poached dish favored by club diners
but not by the judges. "It (the quick
poaching) just didn't work for him.
Sometimes you want a predominant fla-
vor but you have to have balance and
body in the dish. If anything is too over-
powering then you miss."
The third entree served to the judges
was pan roasted striper with ginger rose-
mary sauce, a cooked beet cut out to
resemble a rose, peeled baby asparagus
and bamboo rice risotto. Presentation
and taste were deemed superb by all four
judges, making this the judges' choice.
"This dish also had a great focus on
nutrition," Dutton said. "This is not a
risotto dish. The risotto enhances the
dish."
"The rosemary is not functional and so
unnecessary," Place said about a rose-
mary stem stuck into the fish as a decora-
tion.
"Trey is the premier French chef in this
area," Dutton said about his fellow judge.
Both men were knowledgeable about
food, area restaurants and what makes a
good chef.
"You can see it in their eyes," Place
said.
Both agreed that the best chefs have a
passion for what they do and are con-
stantly learning.
"It is a small world," Dutton said about
chefs. "We know so many."
In the end, the judges awarded second
place to the pan roasted striper on polen-
ta, third place to the vanilla poached sea
bass, which won the People's Choice
Award, and first place to the pan roasted
striper with carved beet rose and bamboo
rice. The vanilla poached sea bass was
prepared by Chef James Christmas of
Mission Valley Country Club. The pan
roasted striper on polenta was created by
Joshua Arent, a broiler chef at the yacht
club, and the winning pan roasted sea
bass with bamboo rice was prepared by
Rolando Cassillas of the Sarasota Yacht
Club.
"He won the contest four years ago
when he was the chef at The Oaks,"
Pegram said. "He was called Hugo
Casillas then but has since changed his
first name to Rolando."
Pegram said he was proud of Arent,
who was a last-minute replacement entry
when three contestants had to drop out.
"My guy got the silver medal from the
judges and had good presentation," he
said.
Sarasota Yacht Club currently has no
building as it is being replaced. If the new
building is ready by next fall, Pegram said
he thought it would be a great place to
have the next contest. The first-place
award is a traveling trophy that goes to
the club of the winning chef for the year.
"There is a lot of anxiety and pressure,
but it is a lot of fun to have my chef
friends here," Pegra said.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is
part two of a two-part series.
In part one, Susan McKee
hooked up with Gamewatch-
ers Safaris and embarked on
safari in Kenya. They are
stalking the "big five": ele-
phant, rhinoceros, leopard,
lion and buffalo. But, instead
of guns, they only capture by
camera.
BY SUSAN MCKEE
GUEST WRITER

"The Masai are not
bush meat eaters, so they
are proud to live together
with wildlife," notes the
warden, David Kitasho.
"Since we started the pro-
ject, things have changed
for the better. The grass
has returned, along with
native trees and bushes."
The conservancy built
waterholes for livestock
and primary schools for
the Selenkay Group Ranch
residents. Of the 183,000
acres in the ranch (com-
munally owned by the
local Masai), about 12,400
are set aside for the con-
servancy area. "We've ben-
efited from the partner-
ship," Kitasho says. "This
model is a good example
for other Masai."
Out on the plains there's
plenty of "nature raw in
tooth and claw." Protected
from the predations of
humankind, animals are
free to play out their preor-
dained roles in the food
chain. Large herds of
ungulates impalas,
waterbucks, gazelles,
antelopes, wildebeest,
zebras are just dinner-
on-the-hoof for the carniv-
orous predators. The mas-
sive herbivores rhinos,
hippos, elephants graze
largely undisturbed. There
are wary groups of
warthogs, occasional
flocks of exotic birds, herds
of graceful giraffe, and
occasional sightings of the
skittish dik-diks, a species

of antelope about the size

The mix of animals
changed as we moved
north and west from
Amboseli to the 01 Pejeta
Conservancy. Richard Big-
ne, conservancy director,
said the project near
Mount Kenya was com-
mercial its purpose was
to make a profit. "But," he
added, "the money is rein-
vested in conservation
efforts."
This area of Kenya used
to be overgrazed by cattle
production, and periodic
drought cut into this previ-
ously profitable business.
About 25 years ago, the
conservancy started with
about 19,000 acres with
the goal of restoring
wildlife to the area. The
area has been expanded
over the years. Now, its
75,000 acres are complete-
ly enclosed (the fencing
electrified by solar power)
- except for the wildlife
corridors that are guarded
24 hours a day to keep out
poachers. (It's on a major
migration route.)
01 Pejeta has some
unique areas within its
fences, including the
largest black rhino sanctu-
ary in East Africa. It has
about 75 black rhino a
protected species, and one
very special tame rhino, a
"retired performer" who
doesn't mind being petted
by humans. A chimpanzee

mals moved to Kenya

their native Burundi.

cattle. Bigne has designed
portable fencing that pro-
tects the livestock from the
wildlife. Each evening, the
Masai herd their animals
inside the modular steel
pens for safekeeping.
"Predators such as lions
are good at summing up
opportunities for a kill,"
Bigne says. "They go hunt-
ing elsewhere." The fenc-
ing allows cattle and
wildlife to coexist, increas-
ing the profit potential for
both.
Our final safari stop was
the 01 Kinyei Conservancy,
adjacent to the enormous
Masai Mara Game
Preserve in Kenya's south-
west that borders
Tanzania's Serengeti. This
parkis the site of the annu-
al summer migration of an
estimated 1.5 million
wildebeest and zebra
across the Mara River. The
land is leased from the
Olempusia group ranch,
providing its Masai owners
with an opportunity to
profit from tourism.
Gamewatchers Safaris
was founded in 1989 by
Jake Grieves-Cook, who's
been involved in Kenya's
tourism industry for more
than three decades. A
descendant of British set-


1H


tiers, he knew that wildlife
in Kenya would be hunted
out of existence if there
were no way for the people
to benefit from it.
Cooperative ecotourism,
he discovered, was a way
to preserve the ecosystem.
"Conservancies allow
the owners of the land -
the Masai to gain
income from wildlife and
environmental conserva-
tion," Grieves-Cook
reports. "We lease rather
than buy, always advising
the communal group
ranches to hold onto their
land. This is marginal land
rather than good agricul-
tural land, and by using it
for ecotourism, it can gen-
erate income for them.
"For the Porini Camps,
we maintain a ratio of one
tent (for two to four peo-
ple) per 700 acres," he
explains. "We don't have
permanent structures or
generators in our camps,
and we use solar power.
The objective is to make a
'light footprint' so all can
be undone when we move
out."
"The Masai is a
nomadic pastoralist who
just wants to look after his
cows. He welcomes a part-
ner using an ecologically
sustainable model, and
tourism doesn't depend
on rainfall the way rearing
cattle does," Grieves-Cook
comments. "Wildlife is
better adapted to chang-
ing climate than livestock.
Lions do well during the
drought. Populations of
herbivores rebound when
the rain returns." The bot-
tom line? "We all benefit
from responsible eco-
tourism."

Mark "
Twain once
remarked that "golf is a
good walk spoiled," but
the opposite may be true.
That is, walking the course
may spoil a golfer's score.
This finding emerged after
researchers studied recreational
golfers who played a simulated
Golf game carrying weighted golf
bags. The golfers'body mechanics
changed for the worse, causing
them to hit with less distance and
accuracy. The golfers were less able
to properly transfer weight to their
front legs during a swing, which
resulted in less club-head velocity.
The angles of golfers'front knees
and ankles also changed at the
top of their swings. These
findings suggest that golf
mechanics and performance
may decline the longer a golfer
walks and swings.

BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

It has seemed to me that
political campaigning has
gotten dirtier and dirtier
every year. We're at the
point where a candidate
can tell you in a TV ad, "Vote
for me. I have integrity, un-
like my lying polecat of an
opponent, who sold his off
years ago," and not even
betray a hint of hypocrisy.
Imagine how surprised I
was to learn that such tac-
tics actually go back to the
founding of our nation. Just
a little Internet "research"
revealed these gems from
1789, likely concocted by a
distant relative of Lee At-
water or Karl Rove:
"In times like these we
need a proven leader, not a
military 'hero' whose all-
too-rare victories depend-
ed entirely on the incom-
petence of his opponents
rather than his own bril-
liance. We need someone
with more political experi-
ence than a few years in a
state legislature. We need
someone who's at least
smart enough to sit down
in a moving boat.
"George Washington ...
last in war, and the last per-
son we need as president."
"Bom on Feb. 11, but now
says it was Feb. 22? Chopped
down a cherry tree and


admitted it because 'I can-
not tell a lie, father'? Threw a
silver dollar across a river?
Resigned as commander of
the army because he didn't
want power, but now wants
to be president? What's next,
George, a promise to only
serve two terms?
"George Washington ...
as false as his teeth."
"Does your house have a
name? GeorgeWashington's
does: Mount Vernon. That's
the kind of thing you do
when you're the richest
man in your state. Ever
wonder how a surveyor and
military man acquired so
much money? The old-fash-


ioned way he married it.
Never had any kids, though.
Hmmm ...
"George Washington ...
father of our country? He
can't even father children."
There are more, but you
get the idea.
Fortunately, in Washing-
ton's day there were few TVs
and even fewer computers,
so it took days or weeks for
such scurrilous attacks to
make the rounds, by which
time the election was over.
Although a few counties
in Florida are still involved
in recounts.

FAITH, VALUES AND LESSONS

SUBMITTED BY DWIGHT DOLBY
PASTOR OF AUBURN ROAD PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH


Enchanted Evening


"Would Jesus Discriminate?"
Intrigued by the question
I've seen on posters and bill-
boards around town, I pur-
posed to attend the Town Hall
Meeting on this subject, hosted
by the SunCoast Cathedral
MCC of Venice and Church of
the Trinity MCC, Sarasota, held
this past Monday evening.
The "Would Jesus Discrimi-
nate" campaign, originating
within the context of the
Metropolitan Community
Church denomination, is
"designed to engage people of
all backgrounds and in all com-
munities in the important topic
of discrimination in order to
spur a shift" in how all people
(but particularly professing
Christians) regard and relate
with those who have experi-
enced the pain and rejection
caused by prejudices regarding
"race, gender, sexual orienta-
tion, gender identity to the
more subtle ongoing oppres-
sion regarding health, age, lan-
guage, etc." (Quotes are taken
from the printed program from
the Town Hall Meeting.)
I took along with me three of
my teenage sons to enable
them to witness with me the
nature and content of the dia-
logue that we might discuss it
and process it from the biblical
worldview out of which we are
seeking to live. As we entered
the facility, we were cordially
met by friendly greeters and the
tone of the entire meeting was
respectful toward all.
The keynote speaker, the
Rev. Dr. Cindi Love, executive


director of Metropolitan
Community Churches world-
wide and originator of this
denominational-wide cam-
paign, communicated with
grace and dignity, her own pas-
sion for this effort, in part, by
telling her personal story of
struggle and transition from
being a closet lesbian in a
Baptist congregation to where
she is now as an active member
of an MCC congregation in
Abilene, Texas. The other dis-
tinguished MCC-connected
panelists also shared their per-
spective on the importance of
this campaign, drawing from
their own experience and
understanding of what it
means to know and serve Jesus
Christ in a world where rejec-
tion and exclusion seem to
contradict the very message of
our Lord, whose great love for
people was not restricted by
their lifestyles. Indeed, who can
deny that Jesus associated
mostly with those people who
were often disdained by the
religious crowd: sinners and
tax-collectors?
After the panelists spoke and
special music was performed by
Backstage, a gifted vocal quar-
tet, questions from the audi-
ence, submitted on notecards,
were answered by the panelists.
Another warm reception await-
ed the attendees as we joined
for snacks in the fellowship hall
after the meeting ended.
It was my sense, as it was
also the sense of my sons, that
most of the people in atten-
dance were members of the
homosexual and lesbian com-
munity, many of them appar-
ently members of the MCC
churches in our area. It was
clear that the Metropolitan
Community Church has
become a haven for those gay
and lesbian people who, by
their own profession, are seek-
ing to remain faithful to Christ
in a church which will not con-
demn or reject them.
As I spoke with a few atten-


dees after the meeting, I real-
ized that my presence there as
an evangelical Presbyterian
minister was a curiosity. I don't
doubt that I was not entirely
trusted. I was thankful to have
my sons with me. Their pres-
ence prompted me to listen
with as many "ears" as possible
and their good humor and
inquiring minds remain a con-
stant source of joy, even in
unfamiliar and provocative
contexts.
Space considerations won't
permit me to communicate
what I am convinced are the
most important thoughts I
came away with from this Town
Hall Meeting. I am determined
to submit a "part two" of this
story as I believe that the
Evangelical Church of Jesus
Christ in this country does
indeed, often fail in its calling
to love people redemptively as
Christ loves. I also noted a
peculiar void in the Town
Meeting conducted Monday by
members of the MCC which
strikes at the heart of what it
means to be one of Christ's fol-
lowers. This I purpose to
address in my next column as
well. There needs to be dia-
logue and study and respectful
debate if we truly desire to
change. I am sincerely appre-
ciative of the respectful wel-
come extended to me in round
one of this campaign and I
trust bridges can continue to
be built. Perhaps our bridge
building efforts won't bring us
together in the end, but cer-
tainly mutual respect for our
persons will bring honor to the
name of Christ.
I wish to close this column
with a question of my own
which hints at the main subject
of my next column: "What is
the role of the Church of Jesus
Christ in relating to me, as a
member of it, if I am struggling
with deeply ingrained thinking
and behavioral patterns which
seem to go against Christ's own
teachings?"

Role Models (R) NEW
Two salesmen trash a company
truck on an energy drink-fueled ben-
der. Upon their arrest, the court gives
them a choice: do hard time or
spend 150 service hours with a
mentorship program. After one day
with the kids, however, jail doesn't
look half bad. Surrounded by annoy-
ing do-gooders, Danny struggles with
his every neurotic impulse to guide
Augie through the trials of becoming
a man. Unfortunately, the guy just
dumped by his girlfriend has only
sarcasm to offer a bashful 16-year-
old obsessed with medieval role play.
Meanwhile, charming Wheeler tries to
trade in an addiction to partying and
women to assist a fifth-grader
named Ronnie redirect his foul-
mouthed ways. It would probably
help if Ronnie's new mentor wasn't
an overgrown adolescent whose idea
of quality time includes keggers in
Venice Beach. Once the center's ex-
con director gives them an ultima-
tum, Danny and Wheeler are forced
to tailor their brand of immature wis-
dom to their charges. 1 hr. 35 mins.

students honored angels by feasting on
angel food cake and saying prayers, and, of
course, making halos.

Saturday is a Sarasota and
Lakeland kind of day

Kim
Cool




Join me in
Sarasota from 8 a.m. to
11 a.m. Saturday. I will be
at the Farmer's Market at the
corer of Main Street and
Lemon Avenue to sign copies
of my latest book, "Ghost
Stories ofVenice Old & New,"
with members of the Author's
Connection, including James
Abraham and Susan Klaus.
Abraham wrote for the
Charlotte Sun for several years
and now is a writing coach and
book broker. Klaus is the
author of The Golden Harpy
and two other novels.
Then I head to Lakeland to
cheer on the cast of Moliere's
"School For Wives," the Venice
Theatre entry in the Florida
Theatre Festival, the first step
toward the national festival of
the American Association of
Community Theatres in
Tacoma next June. With nearly
the same cast that appeared in
the theater's Stage Two produc-
tion last season and the cos-
tumes, which earned designer
Nick Hartman a national
award, my money is on this
troupe to qualify for regionals
in March and then have to deal
with the ultimate problem -
who will drive the truck to
Tacoma?
Directed by Murray Chase,
who cut the original show
down to less than an hour's
performance time to meet fes-
tival rules, "School for Wives"
features flutist Cathy Beaudrit
as The Musician, a role created
to enhance an already wonder-
ful show. Also new for this
show is the show-wagon-style
set, which is opened and set up
in full view of the audience and
harkens back to traveling
shows of Moliere's era.
Along the way to nationals, I
would expect acting awards for
Amber Sulesky, Ron Myroup
and others plus a directing
award for Chase and another
costume award for Hartman.

North Port Concert Band presents'Before You Go'

By MARIE MERCHANT
ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR
Join the North Port Concert
Band in a salute to our veter-
ans at 7 p.m. Thursday, when
they present "Before You Go"
at the North Port Performing
Arts Center.
In his ninth season,
Maestro DeVere Fader will
conduct the show honoring
both living veterans as well
those who have passed.
The concert highlights
popular songs from the
World War II era.
The band will also pre-
miere two new musical num-
bers, "Before You Go" and
"Blades of Grass & Pure
White Stones."
The concert band began
22 years ago with seven
musicians and has grown
into a group of about 90.
A new vocal ensemble,
The Bandoliers, will make


their debut with the band.
"The band and The
Bandoliers have been work-
ing hard on this concert and
are especially excited about


premiering 'Before You Go'
by Sam Bierstock and John
Melnic," explained Joan
Skowyra President of the
North Port Concert Band.


"The song title gave us a
very appropriate title and
theme for the concert and
the lyrics to the song per-
fectly convey our message


which basically says, we
can't ever really know what
our veterans lived, felt or
saw but we can take this
opportunity, while they are
still here with us, to tell them
how much we appreciate all
their sacrifices and say a
thank-you in the best way
we know how through our
music. Sometimes music
expresses feelings better
than just words."
The North Port Performing
Arts Center is located at 6400
W Price Blvd., North Port.
Tickets are $8 for adults and
$4 for students.
The band has set aside
three hundred free tickets to
veterans and their guests

calling 941-426-8479 or 866-

Carnival's Sensation is perfect for first-time

cruising family to test the waters


BY MARIE MERCHANT
ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR
Just a short drive away,
Carnival Cruise's Sensation Fun
Ship offers close-to-home cruise
vacations from Port Canaveral.
Sensation sails to the Bahamas
twice a week for three- and
four-day adventures.
A three-and-half-hour drive to
Port Canaveral begins the
journey to Nassau.
Embarkation was simple.
My husband, 7-year-old
daughter and I checked our bag-
gage with the porter and, with
passports and tickets in hand,
easily went through security.
Then we went up an elevator to
be greeted by employees with
pompoms directing us to the
check in counter.
Passports and tickets are
checked, and your Sail and Sign
card is issued. This card is not
only your room key, but attached
to your credit card for any pur-
chased made on board.
We then had a photo taken by
Carnival staff and crossed the
plank to enter the ship.
We were directed to the Lido
Deck for a buffet lunch that
included hamburgers, fries,
chicken fingers and iced tea
while we overlooked Port
Canaveral and the ship's water-
slide and pool as we waited for
our room to be ready at 1:30 p.m.
Researching the additional
fees ahead of time, I knew that
soda was an extra expense, so I
packed a box of juice boxes and
sodas in a cooler.
After settling into our state-
room, I found our stateroom
steward and asked where I could
find an ice machine to fill our
cooler. He took the provided ice
bucket and came back with it
full. Each time we returned to
our stateroom, we came back to
our cooler filled with ice in addi-
tion to a full ice bucket.
The stateroom had queen a
size bed and an "upper," a wall
unit that pulled out and a ladder
to attach so kids can climb up to
sleep.
Included in the stateroom
bathroom is a shampoo and
body wash dispenser in the

shower, razors, toothpaste, gum,
antacid tablets and a bar of soap.
The ship left port at 4 p.m.
Thursday and traveled through-
out the night to arrive in Nassau
at noon Friday. We were in
Nassau until 6 a.m. Saturday
where we headed back while
enjoying a full fun day at sea
until we returned to the states
at 7 a.m. Sunday.
Each evening, our stateroom
steward, Mario from the
Phillipines, would turn down the
bed and leave a three chocolates
along with the next day's itiner-
ary on the pillow.
Mario also went out of his way
to make children feel included.
He took extra care in placing our
daughter's stuffed animals in the
chair, as if they were awaiting
our return, along with a smile
face cookie.
In addition to what already
was exemplary service, they
make animals out of towels. We
received an elephant, pig and
turtle. The ship also offers a class
on how to along with selling a
book.
The ship's crew keeps guests
busy each day with games on
the stage behind the pool like
"Name That Tune" and the
"Hairy Chest Contest," scavenger
hunts and country line dancing
classes on the Lido Deck to
Bingo and Las-Vegas style shows
in the Fantasia Lounge and even
an ice carving demonstration.
The Atrium features shops
with duty-free shopping of jew-


elry, souvenirs and alcohol. They
also sell photos taken of guests
on board the ship.
There is even a library for
some quiet time, an Internet
cafe to check your e-mail, test
your skills at the video arcade or
head up to the Sun Deck for a
game of mini-golf.
If you're looking to keep in
shape while on-board, the Sun
Deck features a jogging track, or
you can work up a sweat and
appetite at the fitness center.
And to relax, take advantage of
the spa services.
If parents want to check out
the adult night life on the boat,
including trying their luck at the
tables or slot machines in the
casino, catching a show, or sit-
ting at one of the bars or at the
karaoke lounge or piano bar,
babysitting services are available
for $6 hour after 10 p.m. at
Camp Carnival. Some kids were
cuddled up in blankets fast
asleep, while others were laugh-
ing, dancing and making new
friends.
Camp Carnival offers activities
for children ages 2 through 11,
including face painting, bead-
making, T-shirt coloring, candy
bingo, video games, and even a
talent show at no extra cost.
There is also Circle "C" for kids
ages 12 through 14 and "Club
02" for teens ages 15 to 17 where
older kids can have fun with
supervised activities for their age
group.
On night two of the trip, Camp


Carnival kids received an invita-
tion in their stateroom for a late-
night party from 10 p.m. to 1
a.m. with high-energy competi-
tions, games and dancing.
Almost everything is included
in the price of the cruise,
three-course meals in the main
dining rooms, the buffets at the
SeaView Bistro, the 24-hour
pizzeria and ice-cream bar
and room service.
The swimming pool, water-
slide, pool-side games and
activities, Camp Camival before
10 p.m., and the LasVegas-style
shows are also at no additional
cost. Soft drinks and alcoholic
beverages are not included.
Tipping is automatically
charged to your account at the
end of the trip. They charge $10
per day per person. You can add


or subtract to this if you like.
We decided to tip our steward
and wait staff an additional
gratuity directly since they
did such a great job.
The ship entered service in
1993 and was refurbished in
2006, according to information
provided. It carries 2,052
passengers and employs a
crew a crew of 920 hailing from
more than 50 countries.
Sensation, along with two
other Carnival ships, The
Holiday and the Ecstasy, were
chartered by the U.S. govern-
ment for six months in the
aftermath of Hurricane Katrina
to house relief workers,
affected families and
law enforcement.

SENSATION, FROM PAGE 6
In January 2009, the
Sensation will be put in dry
dock for 35 days to remodel
the staterooms, including the
addition of balconies to 98
staterooms. The dining rooms
and entertainment facilities
will also be redone. The pool
area will be redone with a
tropical theme and well as
adding a Carnival WaterWorks
aqua park and Serenity adults-
only area, according to Carnival.
The rate for our ocean-view
stateroom for three in October
was approximately $259 per
person, double occupancy,
plus $65.16 per person for
taxes and fees. Add a tank of
gas for the drive to and from
Port Canaveral, $45 for parking
and some spending money for
excursions and souvenir
shopping, and for less than
$1,500 you get an affordable
family vacation and
memories to last a lifetime.
Check with
www.carnival.com or your
travel agent for the ship's
schedule and rates. Rates
depend on number of people
traveling and travel date.
Carnival's Sensation is per-
fect for a first-time cruising

'Steppin' out' with Jim Prosser and friends


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
Whenever Jannie Jones and Jim
Weaver are on the Goldstein
Cabaret stage at Florida Studio
Theatre in Sarasota, it seems the
spot lights are a whole lot brighter.
Currently appearing with 15-
year FST veteran pianist James
Prosser in "Steppin Out," Jones
andWeaver have been teamed
with two great FST newcomers,
Ryan Flanigan and Alison Renee
Foster in FST's homage to
American music master Irving
Berlin.
Jones andWeaver are so loaded
with talent that they could easily
outshine others on the same stage
but FST's Artistic Director Richard
Hopkins knows this well and


managed to find a perfect pair for
this high-energy show. Using
another FST veteran, Stephen
Hope, as the choreographer was
an equally good move.
Performing a variety of Berlin
songs covering several decades,
while also interjecting some inter-
esting historical tidbits, the cast
managed to painlessly educate
those of us in the audience while
also entertaining us at the Oct. 23
evening performance.
Backed by Prosser's piano work,
the four "Steppin Out" singers art-
fully expanded the cabaret's tiny
stage. Together they performed
such classics as "Doin' What
Comes Naturally," Steppin' Out,"
"Everybody's Doin' It" and "Puttin'
On the Ritz." The latter number,

Thursday, November 20th
Open Seating: 4pm. 7p.m.
Pilgrim United Church of Christ
S24515 Rampart Blvd., Port Charlotte


with very sharp choreography well
done, opens the second act.
Flanigan, in a duet of"A Can Do
Anything Better Than You," with
Weaver, managed to hold a note
longer than is humanly possible
while Weaver knelt down to wait
for him to finish. But Flanigan can
do far more than that and proved
that he definitely is FST Cabaret
material and should be invited
back
Also fitting nicely into the group
was Foster whose rendition of "I
Love a Piano" earned much
applause for her voice as much as
for her infectious smile.
That song was followed by
Flanigan's Italian schtick that
showed yet another one of his
abilities.
And then came more of Jones
and Weaver and with one Berlin
classic after another, the evening
flew by.
The show's music director is
John Franceschina. Lighting is by
Colleen Jennings and Sound by
Eric Stahlhammer. Marcella
Beckwith's costumes were right
on the money, especially the
men's suits were looked as though
they were fresh out of Austria with
their double lapels and pocket
details.
Hopkins was the show's co-cre-
ator, with Rebecca Langford.
"Steppin' Out" continues
through Jan. 3 in the Goldstein
Cabaret at Florida Studio Theatre,
1241 N. PalmAve., Sarasota.
Tickets are $26-$29 per person.

Brian
Roman is a
celebrated
Canadian
vocalist
who has
used his
incredible BRIAN ROMAN
voice and
personal charisma to pursue
his dream of becoming a
world-class entertainer.
During his childhood, Brian
dreamed of being a singer; to
be on stage performing for
people, making them smile,
making them laugh. However,
it was all put on hold until 33
years later when Brian was
determined to 'live his dream'
and made and launched his
own compact disc. On the
26th of April 2006, with the
help of some very dedicated
friends, a 17 piece orchestra
and a 150 member choir Brian
came on stage singing
'Impossible Dream' to a sell-
out audience at his first per-
formance as a professional
musician. Since then, he has
performed throughout
Canada as well as New York,
Dallas, and Florida. Now you
can be part of this exciting
performer's ambition to live
his dream. We hope you will
join Brian at the Cultural


person. Season ticket holders

tickets to all four Stage II pro-
ductions. The other three pro-

him personally, be highly

erages, and spiced pumpkin
pie. A cash bar will be avail-

7 p.m. on Nov. 20 and Nov. 21
and at 2 p.m. on Nov. 22.
"The Diary of Anne Frank" is
the well known story of a 13-
year-old Jewish girl and her fam-
ily who are forced into hiding by
the Nazis duringWorldWar II.
Originally written by Francis
Goodrich and Albert Hackett,
this version was newly adapted
byWendy Kesselman based on
60 years of new information and
performed on Broadway in 1997
when the New York Times
described it as "an adaptation for
a new generation able to con-
front the true horrors of the
Holocaust. Undeniably moving.
It shatters the heart. The evening


never lets us forget the inhuman
darkness waiting to claim its
incandescently human heroine."
The story is drawn from the
journals that Anne Frank, played
by Alissa Cain, penned over two
years of hiding in an attic with
her parents, played by Jonathan
Lange and Vida Potter, and sister,
played by Tagen Kaestner. Joining
them were the Van Daans played
by Frank Drake and Kathy Futch
and their son Peter portrayed by
Nick Glastonbury as well as den-
tist, Mr. Dussel played by Dan
Chilcoat. Also in the cast are
Korina Chilcoat and Jack
Merchant as the Dutch helpers
and Al Incerpi, Warren Mezger
and LarryWicks as Nazis.
The director is Mr. Al Wagner
of Cape Coral who has directed
more than 150 productions in a
career spanning 61 years of
working in professional, college,
church, community, opera and
dance theatres, most recently at


the Cultural Park Theatre and
Christ Lutheran Church in Cape
Coral. In describing the power of
this production Wagner refers to
one ofAnne Frank's lines in the
play, "I still believe, in spite of
everything, that people are really
good at heart." Wagner adds, "It
is that message alongside the
unbelievable cruelty of the
Holocaust which in my opinion
we must never forget and this
new version presents Anne
Frank's story with an unflinching
view of the Holocaust and its
aftermath which needs to be
seen and heard."
Set construction, costumes
and lighting are provided by
Gayle Morris, Linda Morris and
Betty Falkenberg, respectively.
The production is sponsored
by the church's drama ministry
which presents programs that
have religious or philosophical
themes which may cause audi-
ence awareness, insight, ques-


tioning and even controversy
over one's relationship to self, to
others, to the church and to God.
Tickets are not needed for
admission. Doors open 30 min-
utes prior to performance and
there is no reserved seating.
There will be a good will offer-
ing.

SS American Victory sets sail for veterans


By KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
The S.S. American Victory
will sail again on Saturday.
Docked behind the Tampa
Aquarium is an American
Victory ship that has sur-
vived three wars and three
decades in mothballs to live
again as a museum and
monument to the mariners
who once served upon her
as well as veterans and
active military members.
More than simply an incred-
ible hulk, the ship is well
into the restoration process
and has already been out to
sea several times for
fundraisers and other
events.
It was one of the last of
534 Victory-class ships built
for World War II. Launched
at the very end of the "war
to end all wars," this ship
was used as a Good Will
ambassador after that war,
carrying supplies under the
Marshall Plan, before its first
time in mothballs. It later
served in Korea, was moth-
balled again and then served
its final war years in
Vietnam. This ship is the
only one of its kind on the
East coast of the United
States.
The faster Victory class
ships replaced the older
Liberty class ships, moving
through the water at speeds
that often reached 17 knots
per hour.
Since 2000, it has received
more than 110,000 hours of
restoration work by volun-
teers. It also has received
more than $3.5 million in
donations of money and in-
kind gifts of items and work
needed for its restoration as
the only museum ship in the
Southeast capable of sailing
under its own power. Only
two sister ships of similar

vintage have been chosen
for restoration. All the
money and in-kind dona-
tions have been from private
sources, museum and ship
spokesman Tim Tihan said
in the press release about
the cruise.
As the ships were sailed by
merchant mariners, many of
the guides are former
mariners like Jim Waters
who guided me through the
ship about three years ago
and shortly before another
of these special cruises.
Tours include captain and


crew quarters, the laundry,
the original radio room,
chart room, bridge, life boat
stations, crew and officers
mess, showers, engine room
and a look into the cav-
ernous hold where cargo
was stored.
Original blankets were
located for use on many of
the restored bunks. In one
section of the ship there are
hammock-like berths, three
high, and so close together
than rolling over must have
been difficult. This area was
designed for transporting

As small as the narrow
berths below are the seats at
the top-side gun turrets.
Watters description of what
was involved in firing those
guns made it sound as awful
as sleeping in the three-high
berths.
The ship's galley area
appears to be in pretty good
shape, attesting to many
hours of volunteer work and
the careful sealing when the
ship was mothballed.
Its hull was repaired by
the Tampa Bay Shipbuilding
and Repaid Company early
in 2004. The company
donated more than $600,000
in labor and materials.
The Nov. 8 event will
include flyovers by vintage
airplanes, memorial and
burial-at-sea services, guid-
ed tours of the ship, demon-
strations of the weapons on

merchant mariners, active
and retired, will be honored
that day.

Volkswagen's All-New Clean Diesel Jetta TDI
Sets New Guinness World Record for Lowest
Fuel Consumption: 58.82 MPG.


The Taylors break Guinness World Record
driving a stock clean diesel Jetta TDI*


HERNDON, Va., Sept. 29 / PRNewswire/ The
world's most fuel efficient couple, John and Helen Taylor,
have broken the current world record for lowest fuel
consumption across the 48 contiguous United States
averaging 58.82 miles to the gallon. They ended their 20
day trip in West Virginia on Thursday, September 25, 2008.
To help them break the world record, they drove the all new,
50 state-compliant clean diesel Volkswagen Jetta TDI,
fueled by Shell Ultra Low Sulfur diesel fuel under real world
driving conditions, simply applying easy to use fuel saving
tips and the latest efficient engine technology available for
good cleaning diesel fun.
"We are very excited and grateful to have broken the
current Guinness World Record for lowest fuel consumption
across the 48 contiguous United States," said Helen Taylor.
"We would like to thank Volkswagen for providing us their
new clean diesel Jetta that helped us get another World
Record and to Shell for supplying the diesel fuel."
The previous Guinness World Record for the lowest
fuel consumption on a nationwide drive was 51.58 miles per
gallon and the Taylors broke it by setting a new record of
58.82 miles per gallon, a whopping 14 percent
improvement. In 20 days, driving across 48 states the
Taylors drove 9,419 miles, exceeding 60 mpg on several
legs of the record-setting run, spending only 6.9 cents per
mile (total was $653). "The terrain was very diverse, the
weather less than ideal, and the traffic heavy at rush hour
and the VW Jetta TDI handled it all beautifully, showing its
fuel efficiency and its fun-to-drive dynamic capability, just
two of this vehicle's many attributes," said John Taylor. "The
car efficiently helped us to drive to a fuel economy world
record."
People were encouraged to e-mail the Taylors along
the way at: fuelacademy@gmail.com with any questions
they may have about the tour, the vehicle or about fuel
economy tips and join their "Fan" page on Facebook.com.
As of the end of the trip, more than 2,000 people have e-
mailed the Taylors.
Approximately 12 official check-in and refueling stops
across the country were included throughout the duration of
the drive. The couple drove on a counterclockwise route
passing through, Washington D.C.; New York City; Rutland,
Vermont; Toledo, Ohio; Des Moines, Iowa; Spearfish, South
Dakota; Missoula, Montana; Winnemucca, Nevada; Santa
Monica, California; Durango, Colorado; Oklahoma City,
Oklahoma; Mount Vernon, Illinois; Ponchatoula, Louisiana
and Beckley, West Virginia. Some of the fuel saving tips the


Taylor advocate include: avoiding idling and higher speeds,
minimizing vehicle drag and performing regular vehicle
maintenance.
The Taylors have made a 26-year career out of driving
economically and conducting workshops globally on fuel-
efficient driving techniques. They have collected 82 world
fuel economy and vehicle-related records from drives
around the globe in Australia, Asia, South Africa, Europe,
the Middle East and North America.
Via their website, the Taylors will be sharing their
personal experiences on the road. For more information and
regular reports from the road, visit http://
www.fuelacademy.com and
http://www.media.vw.com. For a complete list of fuel-
saving driving tips, visit http://www.shell.com/us/
fuelstretch.


Far from secretive techniques or driving at a snail's pace,
the Taylors employed "Fuel Stretch" Techniques
(http://www.shel .us/home/content/usa/products
services/on the road/fuels/fuel stretch/fuelstretch
052908.html)
that they developed jointly with Shell Oil. Driving
economically is a way of life for the Taylors; they've been
earning world records for 26 years, and this record marks
their 37th world fuel economy world record. They also
conduct workshops around the world on fuel-efficient
driving techniques.

Via their website, they Taylors share experiences from their
journey. For more information and reports, visit their Fuel
Academy Website.

years old. The 54-year-old,
two-passenger roadster
shown here is just that, a
true roadster, i.e. without
roll-up side windows. It is
owned by Bill and Peggy
Miller of Carlisle, Pa., who
have wintered for 10 years
in Florida at their Osprey
condo. They like the sun
and don't miss cold weather
at all!
In regard to the Darrin,
Miller learned it was for sale
in the Kaiser-Frazer Club
Newsletter in 1988, while he
was still in Pennsylvania.
This rare vehicle was owned
by a gentleman residing in
Winter Haven, who bought
it new as a factory demo
unit and used it daily for
everyday transportation.
That was enough informa-
tion for Bill, who quickly
arranged for a friend in
Florida to go for an unoffi-
cial inspection look-see.
This person approved what
he saw and called Bill, who
made an immediate deal
over the phone to conclude
the sale and get it to
Sarasota County.
There were a total of 435
produced, with the Winter
Haven auto being a low
number.
The designer was the
renowned Dutch Darrin,
who did the job in 1952 for
Kaiser as a competitor for
the soon-to-be 1953
Corvette. Both are made of
fiberglass, however the
Darrin was much lighter at
2,175 pounds, using the
existing 100-inch
chassis/running gear from
the Henry J series. They
came with a three-speed
floor shifter and overdrive,
as well as doors that slide
into the front fender when
opened. All used the 161 cu.


in. in-line six engine that
turned out 90 h.p., enough
to do 0-60 in 13 seconds -
respectable in the early '50s.
It was designated DKF 161
by the factory, although that
title was seldom used,
because Darrin was the
name called by "real" car
people.
The base price of $3,668
was higher than the market
would pay and after one
year, Kaiser phased it out
completely. Even the 30
miles per gallon failed to
tempt buyers! Today, they
are very coveted due to the
unique design and good
reputation. Darrin himself
took the remaining 100
incomplete units, finished
them using Cadillac engines
and sold them for $4,300 -
to eager buyers wanting the
"hot" performance.
The following was
provided to me by Bill
Miller, who, by the way, is
president of Carlisle Events
Inc., with permission to
print in this week's column:
"What makes Carlisle, (Pa.),
so unique? It's the home of
Carlisle Events and the
Carlisle Fairgrounds, the
location of the largest car,
truck and motorcycle
collector events in the
country.
"Prior to Carlisle Events
emergence, anyone
interested in restoring or
showing 1950s- or 1960s-
era cars had few options.
That all changed when
Chip Miller and Bill Miller
Jr. became friends through
a mutual interest in cars of
the 1950s. Together, they
began going to car shows
and swap meets, where


until mat ime, me only
cars deemed worthy to
collect were pre-(World War
II) automobiles.
"On Sept. 26, 1974, on the
rented Carlisle Fairgrounds,
'PostWar '74' took place. It
was the very first car event
promoted by the company.
In a year still remembered
for gas lines and inflation,
nearly 600 vendors set up in
more than 800 spaces, and
13,000 spectators paid $1
admission to sample their
wares.
"Within a few years, the
Carlisle Fairgrounds had
become a mecca for
collector car enthusiasts all
over the world. The run-
away success of what
became known as Fall
Carlisle Collector Car Swap
Meet and Car Corral led to
a similar spring event in
1977. In short order, they
became complete sellouts
for vendor and car sale (or
"car corral") spaces. In
1981, after renting the
fairgrounds for each event,
the Millers purchased the
82-acre property. Later on,
another 18 acres.
"Over the years, Carlisle
Events has transformed the
fairgrounds to suit the
needs of car show partici-
pants and visitors. Continu-
ous improvements include
paved roads, a manicured
landscape and more than
10 permanent buildings. At
the same time, Carlisle
Events has established
consumer-friendly services
such as on-site bank
financing, notary and title
services and a wide variety
of dining choices.
"When Chip and Bill
Miller held their first car
show at the Carlisle
Fairgrounds over 34 years


ago, they never could have
envisioned the growth and
legacy of Carlisle Events.
"Chip Miller, co-founder
of Carlisle Events, had a
favorite saying, 'Life is
Good.' His son, Lance, has
carried on that tradition,
and it appears he will
continue to carry on a lot
more Carlisle Events with
his longtime friend, Bill
Miller III. In 2007, Bill Miller
Jr. announced that Lance
Miller and Bill Miller III, his
son, will continue in their
respective families' tradi-
tion of operating the
Carlisle Events Business at
the Carlisle Fairgrounds.
"Throughout the 34 years
of existence, the Miller
families continued to add
specialty shows to their
event seasons. Carlisle
Events produces eight
specialty shows, plus the
spring and fall events, which
also serve as the basis for
the Spring and Fall Collector


Car Auctions. The specialty
shows include Carlisle
Performance & Style,
Carlisle Import-Kit/Replicar,
Carlisle All Ford Nationals,
Carlisle All-GM Nationals,
Carlisle All-Chrysler
Nationals, Carlisle Summer
Bike Fest, Carlisle All-Truck
Nationals and Corvettes at
Carlisle. The events bring in
$97 million annually to the
local economy and the
spring show is the organiza-
tion's biggest draw of the
year with over 130,000
guests annually."
The reason for including
this brief about the history
of Carlisle is to provide the
official background to the
public, especially collector
car hobbyists, many of
whom have attended
events during the 34 years
of its existence. Their
spring and fall shows truly
bring people from almost
all states and probably a
dozen foreign countries.
It's hard to find an old car
buff who hasn't heard
about Carlisle. Now, as
Paul Harvey said, "you
know the rest of the story!"
This very automobile
seen here will be featured
Nov. 15 during the Second
Annual Sun Papers "Wel-
come Back" Collector Car
Show and Open House to
be held from 9 a.m. to 2
p.m. at their headquarters,
23170 Harborview Road,
Charlotte Harbor, just east
of U.S. 41. Weather permit-
ting, many antique vehicles
from a 1912 Ford up to 1986
versions should be on hand
for everyone to enjoy.
There is no charge for
any owner of a nonmodi-
fled car, truck or motorcycle
at least 22 years old to


compete for trophies or just
display their pride and joy.
However, you must prereg-
ister at 941-235-7701 or
941-575-0202, due to
parking space restrictions.
In addition to the oldies,
live music will be playing
'50s, '60s and '70s tunes;
food and beverages will be
available; plus there will be
some special 2009 cars. The
public is invited to attend,
free, of course!
Recently, I spoke to Rick
Treworgy, owner of
Muscle Car City, who
personally has over 200
fully restored or excellent
original autos. His conver-
sion of the former Wal-
Mart store in Punta Gorda
to become a car museum
is "a work in progress."
Present plans are to be
fully moved in by mid-
January with a "soft
opening" soon afterward,
holding the grand open-
ing perhaps in mid-
February. For now, I can't
say any more than this
operation will be first-
class. Watch for a color
photo story in the Punta
Gorda Herald by Editor
Gordon Bower as time
grows near completion.
Be alert! There seems to
be a future possibility of
some mandatory emissions
controls for vehicles in
Florida. If based after the
California plan, we may
have a real problem. The
result: extra expense and
lower MPG, etc. Let's all
keep an eye on this subject!

and co-founder of the

Club ofArnerica. He can be

Experience You Con Trust


It's a difficult thing to tell
your boss that you've dis-
covered a lump and need
to get a mammogram. Now,
imagine those words com-
ing from a man.
Bill Simcox of Port
Charlotte didn't have to
imagine it, he actually expe-
rienced it.
"When I told my store
manager I was getting a
mammogram, he looked at
me like I was crazy," Simcox
recalled.
Simcox is 57 and is being
treated for breast cancer.
"I had a lump, it wasn't
sore, it was there before," he
explained. "And then, it was
bigger."
Simcox said that Dr. Joe
Butler performed a modi-


Jennifer
Wadsworth
Feeling Fit Editor

fied radical
mastectomy
on him May
22, 2008. Now, he said,
"there's nothing left but an
8-inch scar."
He added that Dr.
Christopher Lobo has been
"taking care of the chemo
part since July 14, 2008."
The American Cancer
Society estimates that in
2008 about 1,990 new cases
of invasive breast cancer
will be diagnosed in men in
the United States. Breast
cancer is about 100 times
less common for men than


women. For men, the life-
time risk of getting breast
cancer is about 1 in 1,000.
Although men may think
the odds are in their favor,
Simcox believes that it's not
a reason to think it can't
happen to them.
He said that since men
don't get a yearly mammo-
gram and it's not something
that doctors routinely
check, they need to do a
monthly breast exam them-
selves.
"If you don't know how,
ask your wife!" he joked.
Dealing with a cancer
diagnosis of any kind is an
arduous task. Add to that
missing work, insurance
and financial woes, and the
fact that you have a cancer


that is associated almost
exclusively with women it
can become overwhelming.
While organizations like
the American Cancer
Society offer different types
of cancer support groups,
men attending a breast can-
cer meeting would often
find themselves the only
male there.
Simcox said he has found
support online at various
Web sites. The Internet has
been a valuable resource for
learning about his diagnosis
and treatment as well as
finding other men who have
had a similar experience.
Whether you get help
online or from a group,
Simcox insists, "Don't go
through it alone."

Learning to help by guiding, not by doing


Dear Dr. Joan: My father
died three years ago
this month. For some
reason, I am remembering
many things about when I
grew up. There's one thing
that really bothers me about
dad. Whenever I was working
on a project for science or
the Soap Box Derby my
dad would say he'd help me,
and then he would do it him-
self.

For the benefit of those who
may not have heard of the
Soap Box Derby, it is a race for
boys who built their own race
cars. A news photographer
named Myron Scott was cov-
ering the event in his home-
town of Dayton, Ohio, and
was so impressed that he
copyrighted the idea.
During 1936, the Works
Progress Administration, or
WPA, built a permanent track
in Akron, for the national
event. Each year, youngsters
ages 10-18 from all over the
U.S. and several foreign coun-
tries have competed there in

crates and
many other
items that were thought to
have no further value, found
new life in the hands of the
boys as the race cars were
constructed from the ground
up.
Memories about this event
and your dad are part of your
"Anniversary syndrome."
Many of us experience this
phenomenon as the anniver-
sary of a loved one's passing
rolls around. Somehow, our
bodies remember. It is part of
Mother Nature's plan to
resolve all "unfinished busi-
ness."


Your times with your dad
might be compared with what
happens when some of us
have difficulty with our com-
puters today. We ask a friend
for advice. The computer
whiz quickly hits three keys in
rapid succession and says,
"There, that's all you needed
to do." Of course, while
extremely grateful, the com-
puter illiterate like me is
just as puzzled as before.
Helping and guiding are, in
a sense, a fine art. The readi-
ness level needs to be
assessed, the intellectual
capacity of the learner has to
be taken into consideration,
and the language used is
important, too. "Just insert
the 'whoosit' into the
'whatchamacallit,'" isn't very
useful. It's not surprising that
many of us are not skilled in
how to do it.
Some of the newer ways of
disciplining and helping chil-
dren were not devised until
the last 40 years. This means
that our parents merely car-
ried on the traditions of the

family and did what their
folks did.
Most likely when you were
working on your projects, dad
wanted to help, but just never
saw an example of "guiding"
so, didn't think of a different
way. The good news about
this situation is that you are
now aware. You didn't like the
way you were treated, and
rightly so. You wanted to learn
by doing, and yet, you weren't
allowed.

ries, have the opportunity to

The differences between resistance bands and dumbbells


By CARRIE ANDRADE
Resistance bands can be
seen at most gyms and reha-
bilitation centers as an
important strength-training
tool. You may wonder if they
are as effective as dumbbells,
and is it better to use one or
the other? They both have
their own advantages as well
as disadvantages when it
comes to function and
results.
Dumbbells are usually the


first things you think about
when someone mentions
weight training. Dumbbells
are a very functional way to
strength train. If you think
about it, the daily activities
you participate in require lift-
ing, pushing and pulling of
objects of different weights.
This is similar to what you
would be doing when training
with free weights. Training
those muscles you use to lift a
box for example would be the

same as performing a dumb-
bell squat. A squat practiced
with correct form can condi-
tion you to be comfortable
with lifting heavy boxes as
well as children without injur-
ing yourself. Dumbbells also
give you the ease of tracking
your progress and are univer-
sal no matter where you are.
There are some disadvan-
tages to working with dumb-
bells as well. If you are trying
to start a home gym, they can
be kind of pricey if you have
to purchase several sizes.
Also, you cannot travel with
them as easily as you can with
resistance bands. If not used
properly, they can cause
injuries, especially if using a
weight that is particularly
challenging for you.
Resistance bands are light-
weight so they are easy to
travel with. They also provide


a constant resistance, which
works the muscles in a differ-
ent manner than weights
would. Bands are very popu-
lar in rehab facilities because
they are much safer than
dumbbells when dealing with
post-surgery patients and
those with specific limita-
tions. Also, you do not need
to work against gravity like
you would with dumbbells.
This means they are more
versatile and you can incor-
porate more muscles with a
variety of directions to work
your muscles in. Resistance
bands are also a very afford-
able alternative.
Some disadvantages to
bands would be that wear
and tear may cause them to
lose elasticity. Different quali-
ties of bands determine how
long they will hold up for you.
Unlike dumbbells, resistance

bands vary on their level of
difficulty. Usually they are dif-
ferent colors that match a
specific resistance level.
Color-coding is not standard
for all bands, so if you buy a
red band in the store it may
be a different resistance than
the red one you used at the
gym yesterday.
Overall, they can both be
very useful tools to incorpo-
rate in your fitness routine. It
is recommended that you
vary your workouts so that
your muscles do not become
used to one particular pro-
gram. By doing this, you can
avoid the plateaus that are
often experienced in routines.
It is very important for
women to incorporate
strength training into their fit-
ness routine for many rea-
sons. Having a variety of
methods to do this helps you
stay motivated and allows you
to keep seeing those results
you're looking for.
Consistency is the key to all
programs with whatever form
of strength training you
decide to use.
Review and change your
exercises about every 4-6
weeks.

Leaving a family legacy


November 6, 2007
Since being diagnosed
with lung cancer, I have
begun to think about my
legacy, and what I am going
to leave behind for my chil-
dren and grandchildren. Of
course, I am hoping to beat
cancer and live long
enough to enjoy the next
stage of my life. I am look-
ing forward to watching
Paula, June and Jessie
marry and start a family
themselves. This is the cul-
mination of everything
Yoko and I have worked for.
But if I am not here, what
have I left behind and what
will they have to remember
me by? What will be my
legacy?
My uncle has a log-cabin
retreat with 100 or so acres
in a beautiful spot in
upstate NewYork. I have
often told Yoko that I would
love to leave land to my
family a family estate.
My wife is so practical,
however, she really does
not buy it. My dream would
be to have a beautiful 100-
acre working horse farm.
This would be a place to
retire perhaps in New
Mexico or someplace like
that and then could be
passed on from generation
to generation. Yoko says:

\ ^ I I have been diagnosed and am being treated for
SStage IIIA locally advanced Adenocarcenoma
\ (Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer). This column is a
weekly diary that tracks my life as it was one
9' year ago. My purpose in writing is to give can-
cer patients hope and understanding about
what happens to your life after getting a cancer
diagnosis. This is for all of you being treated for
Thomas E. Cappiello cancer or caring for a loved one.


"Well, who is going to pay
for the upkeep? What about
the taxes and insurance?"
And my response is, "Uh,
it's just a dream I haven't
worked out the details yet."
But she's right, and now I
may not have the time to
realize my dream, which,
until now I figured was 15
years or so away. Lately, I
have begun to think that
art, rather than land, might
be a more practical asset to
pass on to future genera-
tions.
I am not an artist, but I
love art. Before I learned
about my cancer, the plan
was to begin traveling. We
made it to Hawaii in late
July for a family summer
vacation. Yoko and I spent a
lot of time visiting art gal-
leries around Waikiki.
A few weeks later we

were off to Ft. Lauderdale
for a weekend getaway. We
went to visit an old college
friend who lives in Miami
Beach. He is a criminal tax
defense lawyer and lives on
an exclusive private island
off of South Beach.
My friend collects art and
has some easily recogniz-
able pieces. One I noticed
in his living room was a
piece by Joan Miro, the
Spanish artist. (Miro has a
very distinctive style and
once you know what he
does, he is as recognizable
as Jackson Pollack.) In fact,
he was a student of
Picasso's and you can easily
see Picasso's influence in
his work.
The following day Yoko
and I were touring Los Olas
Blvd. in Ft. Lauderdale, just
browsing art galleries, when

we happened into the New
River Gallery. They also had
a Miro this time with a
price tag. Yikes! Yoko and I
had a long talk with the
gallery consultant, who
explained how they help
people become collectors
- and that is when I began
to think it would make a
great hobby and perhaps a
good investment. I decided
to study the idea a little
more.
For Labor Day, Yoko and I
went with friends to New
Mexico, spending a lot of
the time in Santa Fe looking
at art. A few weeks later, we
went to New York City to
see friends. While there, we
went to The Museum of
Modern Art, where we saw
more Miro. We also visited
the Metropolitan Museum,
where we saw many of the


great 21st century artists,
including Miro.
I had been bumping into
Joan Miro everywhere.
Perhaps it was another
omen. I had never really
considered buying anything
like this. After my lung can-
cer diagnosis, it dawned on
me that this might be a
great legacy and gift to my
children and future genera-
tions.
A few weeks ago, in the
midst of all this news about
cancer, I decided to bite the
bullet. I am now the proud
owner of Joan Miro's
Pygmees Sous La Lune
(etching and aquatint)
Number 17 of 50 original
productions.

Breast cancer awareness luncheon gives hope


The 5th Annual Breast
Cancer Awareness Luncheon
of The Women's Group of
Englewood Community
Hospital was held October
22, at the Suncoast
Auditorium.
The house was packed
with 145 area women who
came to hear the inspira-
tional message that the lun-
cheon has provided them
each year.
The speaker this year was
Eileen Kowalski, a 9-year
breast cancer survivor who
said a mammogram is the
tool that saved her life.
Eileen shared her personal
story and stressed the impor-
tance of having an annual
mammogram.
At the end of her speech,
Ms. Kowalski, was presented
with a breast cancer aware-
ness bear and a breast can-
cer awareness angel, both


named Hope.
Hope, the bear, sang an
inspirational message to
cancer survivors and to
those who still struggle with
their battle.
"Celebrity" waiters Tom
Dignam, David Dignam,
Chris Murtha, Vic Berger,
Richie Edwards, Joe
McCarthy and Larry
MacNamara, attired with
their pink bow ties, served
lunch and Dick Bertler pho-
tographed the event.

FACES & PLACES


St. Luke Patron of
Physicians and
Surgeons Award
Every year, the employees,
physicians, and support per-
sonnel of Peace River
Regional Medical Center
nominate a single physician
to be awarded the St. Luke
Patron of Physicians and
Surgeons Award through their
induction into the Society of
St. Luke. This honor is award-
ed annually to a selected
member of the Medical Staff
for their unprecedented com-
mitment and service to the
patients, community, and
Mission of Peace River
Regional Medical Center. On
Thursday, October 29, Peace
River Regional Medical
Center announced this year's
recipient.
"This particular physician
is an inspiration to all," says J.
David McCormack, Chief
Executive Officer of Peace
River Regional. "It is her pro-
fessionalism and divine com-
passion to patients and the
community which deems her
most deserving of this honor-
able distinction. This year, the
recipient of the 2008 St. Luke
Award is Dr. Adelina Flores."
Adelina Flores, MD, was
born in the Philippines. As
one of twelve children, and
with two children, Hector and
Karen, and three grandchil-
dren, Alex, Evan, and Trey, of
her own, she holds her family
close to her heart, another
quality that makes Dr. Flores
that much more caring to
others. Upon completing her
education at the CEBU
Institute of Technology in the
Philippines, Dr. Flores moved
to the United States to com-
plete her internship at
Lutheran Medical Center in
St. Louis, MO, followed by her
residency at St. John's
Episcopal Hospital in
Brooklyn, NY.
Dr. Adelina Flores joined
the medical staff of Peace


Dr. Adelina Flores
River Regional in December
of 1978 with privileges in
Internal Medicine and
Endocrinology. She is current-
ly the Continuing Medical
Education Program Chairman
as well as a member of the
Board of Directors. Dr. Flores
is adored by many; her gentle
grace and kindhearted
demeanor makes her the
ideal recipient of the 2008 St.
Luke Award.

Accredited nuclear
laboratory
One American dies every
32 seconds of cardiovascular
disease, disorders of the heart
and blood vessels.
Cardiovascular disease is the
leading cause of death in the
United States, costing society
over 83.7 billion dollars each
year in health services, med-
ications and lost work time
due to disability. Each year,
approximately five and a half


million stress nuclear cardiol-
ogy studies are performed in
the United States. Both the
pump function and the blood
flow of the heart are assessed
during nuclear cardiology
testing procedures. As a
result, physicians are able to
detect the presence of cardio-
vascular disease and may also
discover important informa-
tion regarding the occurrence
of future heart attacks.
The heart is evaluated at
rest and during exercise using
a small amount of radioiso-
tope during the noninvasive
procedure. A complex imag-
ing technique, nuclear cardi-
ology testing relies on the
experience and training of
both the physician and the
technologist. Their interpre-
tive and technical abilities
determine the diagnostic
accuracy of the examination.

The Intersocietal Commission
for the Accreditation of
Nuclear Medicine
Laboratories (ICANL) has
developed an accreditation
program that evaluates the
quality of these and other
critical elements of a nuclear
cardiology laboratory.
Raja and Raja, MD'S, PA
located in Englewood, was
granted accreditation by the
ICANL.
The ICANL was established
with the support of the
American Society of Nuclear
Cardiology, the Society of
Nuclear Medicine, the Society
of Nuclear Medicine
Technologist Section, the
American College of
Cardiology, the American
College of Nuclear Physicians


and the Academy of
Molecular Imaging (formerly
known as the Institute for
Clinical PET). The ICANL pro-
vides a peer review mecha-
nism to encourage and recog-
nize the provision of quality
nuclear cardiology and
nuclear medicine diagnostic
evaluations by a process of
voluntary accreditation. A
non-profit organization, the
ICANL is dedicated to ensur-
ing high quality patient care
and to promoting health care.
Participation in the accred-
itation process is voluntary.

Voice Aerobics DVD
Developed by Mary
Spremulli, MA, CCC-SLP, a
speech-language pathologist,
Voice AerobicsTM is a three-
part exercise program focus-
ing on breath work, voice
exercises and general exer-
cise.
Voice Aerobics began in
1999 as a 50-minute class for
patients with Parkinson's dis-
ease. Soon, it attracted a
range of participants, many
requesting a copy of the pro-
gram so that they could do it
on their own at home.
This DVD is the express
version of the class, and is
well-suited to individuals who
have completed formal thera-
py, or not yet ready to commit
to formal therapy, but con-
cerned about changes in


speech and voice function.
"As a therapist for over 25
years, I have learned that the
most I can offer a patient is
knowledge about their illness
or disease, a meaningful and
relevant treatment program,
and tools that allow them to
continue to practice on their
own," stated Spremulli.
The cost of the DVD is $20.
A portion of proceeds are
being donated to the National
Parkinson's Foundation
(www.npf.org) and Lee
Silverman Voice Treatment
Foundation (www.lsvt.org).

Today, bonsai care has
become a popular hobby for
some who want to develop a
spiritual connection with
nature. The loving care you
provide in nurturing, trim-
ming, and sculpting these
trees can add to your personal
peace of mind and spirituali-
ty. Bonsai has become a cen-


tering and meditative exercise
that can help relieve stress,
lessen depression, and lower
blood pressure. It is likely one
of the many contributing fac-
tors to Japanese longevity. Dr.
Ruggieri uses bonsai in his
office to create a calm and
welcoming atmosphere for
his patients.

A little about bonsai
V The word bonsai comes
from Japanese characters
that mean "tree in a tray"
V The earliest evidence of
bonsai was found in a 706AD
Tang Dynasty Chinese
prince's tomb
V Bonsai reached Japan in
791AD during the Heian
period and has been refined
into the art form we know by
the Japanese ever since.
V The oldest bonsai in the
US is a 300+ year old white
pine called the Yamaki pine.
It began life in the 1600's and
survived the atomic bomb-
ing of Hiroshima in 1945.
