Brian W\illette's dream of
moving his small automotive
shop into a 7,000-square-foot
facility may have been poi-
soned by a pharmacy.
The local owner of\:illene
Automotive, a small corner
shop at 207 South Tamiiami
Trail, has been working for
more than a year to buy the
vacant Goodyear Tire store
just down the street at 405
South Tamiami Trail trip-
ling the size of his business.
Willette is no closer to a
deal because Walgreens Corp.
has jumped into the bidding
process. The property owner,
a trustee based out of Fort


Myers, keeps waiting for
\\algreens to close the deal.
but has promised WVillerte he's
next in line if it falls through.
"I'm just the little guy here,
getting dangled on the end of
a string." \illete said Friday
ds he wiped grease and oil off
his hands. "I could really fix
the place up nice. I have big
plans, but who knows?"
The lenice Gondolier Sun
was not able to contact the
property owner, who is listed
as trustee Violet Shepard of
Fort Myers.
City code enforcement
officers haven't been able to,
either, and the site along U.S.
41 Business will start getting
hit with $50 per day fines Jan.
14 if the trash, high weeds and


loose debris are not cleaned
up.
Code board members de-
bated whether to issue fines.
More than anything, they
want the property to no long-
er be an eyesore.
The current o\vwer is ignor-
ing code officers, according to
discussion at Thursday's
meeting, and members fear
hefty fines could impede the
properrm's sale or even get
passed on to the new owner.
Fines will start Friday. Jan. 14,
if the site isn't cleaned up.

Bicycle riders are

People who ride bicycles,
as individuals and organized
groups, are among the worst
traffic offenders on the roads,
many police officers claim.
As an example, officers
said cyclists blow right
through stop signs posing a
danger to themselves and
motorists. They said bicyclists
rarely; if ever, obey stop signs.

Venice Area Beautification Inc. recently completed the latest portion of the Venetian
Intracoastal Waterway trail. The bike path now runs under both the Hatchett Creek Bridge
to the north and the Circus Bridge to tie south, so pedestrians no longer have to cross
U.S. 41 Business. Completion of the island side of the path isn't expected until much later
this year because of multiple permitting and land acquisition issues on the south end.


Bartanowicz named interim airport manager


BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

A longtime member of
Venice Aviation Society Inc.
will step in as the interim
manager of Venice Municipal
Airport.
Just don't expect Dr. Robert
"Bart" Bartanowicz to get too
Comfortable.
City Manager Marty Black
made the decision Jan. 4 iri
an attempt to fill the void
left by Robert Hernandez,
who issued his resignation a
month ago citing "unexpect-
ed personal obligations."
liernandez agreed to stay on
until mid-February to assist


with, airport development
plans, Black said.
The public workshop on
airport finances and develop-
ment is at 1 p.m. Wednesday
at city hall.
Bartanowicz will begin as
interim airport manager Jan.
18, 'and Hernandez will assist
with the transition.
"Dr. Bartanowicz is a year-
round resident, pilot, and
retired from the Federal
Aviation Administration,
prior to relocating to the
area," Black wrote to council.
"Dr. Bartanowicz does not
have an interest in serving on
a permanent basis, but his
experience, interest and com-


munity commitment are wel-
come during this transition
process."
Airport's future
The next workshop will
deal with Venice Municipal
Airport and its future. Policies
surrounding the undevel-
oped 125 acres, rather than
the potential buildings them-
selves, will drive this conver-
sation.
Hernandez advises city
council to not develop the
entire site, in stark contrast
to talk earlier in 2004. In his
Dec. 16 memo, Hernandez
suggests the site be devel-
oped slowly over time to


may not be in the bank.

BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

For Englewood residents
living near Englewood Ele-
mentary School and residents
of Warm Mineral Springs, it's
a situation of good news and
not-so-good news.
Tuesday, Sarasota County
commissioners will consider
a list of regional sidewalk pri-
ority projects in develop-
ment since July that includes
projects in the Old Englewood
area, North Englewood and
Warm Mineral Springs.
The priority list is the result
of a commission decision last
July to revamp the sidewalk
paving program by moving to
a regional approach and using
new ranking criteria.
In a memo to commission-
ers, Jim Harriott Jr., general
manager of the county's
Transportation Planning and
Transit Department, wrote
that the ne\v priority list takes
account of sidewalk segments
previously on dte boards pri-
ority list and "additional side-
walks that complete or com-
plement those priorities."
According to the new prior-
ity list, segments of 16 streets
in the area surrounding Eng-


meet tfe airport's financial
needs by generating lease
revenue much like
Holiday Condominiums,
Venice Mobile .Home Park
and aviation businesses on
airport property already'
do.
How much and what type


lewood Elementary, a total of
7.14 miles are ranked at 10th
on the list. While nine of those
segments had never been on
the priority list, the other
seven ranked 34 or lower.
SBut the bad news for those
,Old Englewood residents
waiting for completed seg-
ments is that, even at the
number 10 position, funding
is in place for only the design
phase, with the entire project
costing $4.3 million.
Moving up
The same is true in Warm
Mineral Springs, where seg-
ments on two streets (DeLeon.
and Ortiz boulevards) totaling'
1.96 miles moved from 89th
and 99th on the priority list to
the 17th position. In the case
of the streets, funding of $1.2
million for both design -and
construction are listed as
future projects.
Other South County side-
walk projects that moved up,
on the priority list included
3.86 miles of segments on.
nine streets in Laurel and
Nokomis, a total of $2.3 mil-
lion, and 4.08 miles along 12
streets in the Osprey area
totaling $2.5 million.
Commissioners authorized


of development, however, will
be decided based on council's
desire to maintain airport
operations or expand them,
he writes.

the change in approach after
hearing from staff last July
how the request-driven pro-
gram often resulted in a con-
stantly changing priority list
leading to an inefficient pro-
gram.
Cost, too, also contributed
to the inefficiency of the pro-
gram, according to Molly
Williams, the program coordi-
nator.
For example, during the
July public hearing, Williams
gave the board a breakdown
on the costs of two projects
currently under way by the
same firm.
In Nokomis, a project to
construct 1,900 linear feet of
sidewalk along, Nippino Trail
cost $924,000 per mile to
construct: On the other hand,
a 16,070-linear-foot sidewalk
near Brentwood Elementary
in Sarasota cost $580,800 per
mile to construct.
Under the new approach,
the county hopes to contain
project costs and avoid multi-
ple disruptions of neighbor-
hoods with sidewalk con-
struction.
Commissioners wiill meet
at 9 a.m. both Tuesday' and
'Wednesday in Commission
Chambers in the Counry
Administration Center, 1660
Ringling Blvd., Sarasota.
In addition, Access Sara-
sota Channel 19 will carry the
meeting live in its entirety for'
viewing by Sarasota County
residents and will repeat the
broadcast throughout the
week. A program schedule is

SATURDAY. JAN. 8. 2005


Veteran deputy finance director could be promoted


A five-month search has yielded no
qualified candidates, according
to Mayor Dean Calamaras.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


She was just another Flor-
ida transplant 23 years ago,
down from New York and
looking for work as a secretary.
That $3.69 an hour tempo-
rary job as the finance depart-
ment's first secretary lead to
Joanne Lounsbury steering
the Venice money ship with a
$64 million budget and nearly
350 employees.
Mayor Dean Calamaras
acknowl-
edged that
Lounsbury is
being consid-
ered for the .
position of fi-
Snance direc-
tor during
Thursday's
financial poli-
cies work- Calamaras
shop. Venice
has been without a director
for five months after Mike
McPhail's replacement unex-
pectedly quit after only five


weeks on the job.
"To be honest, none of
them (applicants) were as
good as the last guy, and he
just quit," said Calamaras,
who admitted a total of 46
applications have been re-
ceived and more than half had
no government experience.
Lounsbury earned just
more than $147 a week in
1983.
As the acting finance direc-
tor, she now makes that much
by lunch each day some-
thing she never would've
imagined 23 years ago when
she and her late husband,
Robert, were looking for work.
"We were just putting ap-
plications in everywhere, and
I had always enjoyed working
with numbers," Lounsbury
said. "Back then, we just
needed a job."
Change of mind
Lounsbury previously had
said she did not want to be
considered for the job. En-
couragement from staff and


MONEY POLICIES QUESTIONED
Council members City Manager Mary Black and Acting
Finance Director Joanne Lounsbury spe t most of their four-hour
workshop talking about issues other than finding full-time
finance director.
Here are some of the highlights:
SMillage rate There are seven years remaining on the policy
to reduce property tax rates by 1.5 percent a year. Black suggests
identifying the services that be cut because of this reduction when
the next budget comes up for approval. If local taxes were collect-.
ed at the 2002 rate, Venice would've brought in an extra $400,000
this year, according to Black. .
Best practices Line up city financial policies with best prac-
tices suggestions from Government Finance Officer's Association.
Black and Lounsbury said most money policies already are, but
would like council approval to make this an official policy.
One Cent Sales Tax Look ahead to expiration of this county
tax in 2007, and the more than 52 million it brought to Venice this
year. Money has paid for the Venetian Intracoastal Waterway trail,
city palm trees and downtown beautification.
Donation policy There are no rules for how (he city donates
money and waives fees to nonprofit groups. This year, the city will
dish out more than $41,000 to local nonprofit groups, with the
largest chunk $25,000 headed to VeniceMainstreet Inc.
City staff will draw up a suggested policy for uncil members to
review. P


five months as the interim
director led to a formal re-
quest Oct. 5.
"I figured enough people
already had approached me,
I'm already doing it, why not
apply?"' Lounsbury said.
An exception to the job


description would have to be
made. Despite her 23 years
of experience in the Venice
finance department, she
only has a high school diplo-
ma and 15 certificates of
completion for seminars
organized by Florida Gov-


ernment Finance Officer's
Association.
Current requirements are
for a bachelor's degree in
business, finance or account-
ing, with a preference for a
master's degree. The job post-
ing offered a maximum of
$85,000 year, and Lounsbury
is making $75,000 year as the
acting director. Her regular
salary was $66,000 a year as
the deputy director.
Council members ques-
tioned the
mayor and
City Manager
Marty Black
about why-
more and bet-
ter qualified
candidates
weren't apply-
ing.
They asked Black
if the offered
salary should be increased
by $20,000, which led to a
word of caution from Black,
with his "fiscally conserva-
tive" views.
"We don't want to start
down the road of radically
changing how we figure sal-
aries," Black said. "That's a
place I don't think we should
go, or we're prepared to go."


Background
Despite no college degrees,
Lounsbury has held the title of
budget coordinator since
1990, two years after being
promoted to
administra-
tive assistant
to the finance I
director.'
City coun-
cil created the
deputy .
finance direc-
tor position in
October 1991 Lounsbury
- three
months before hiring the
now-retired McPhail and
put Lounsbury in that spot.
She has held that title ever
since, going from making
nearly $24,000 a year in 1991
to $75,000 now as acting
finance director.
Her regular salary as the
deputy director is about
$66,000 a year, at $31.76 an
hour.
No date for a decision on
finance director was an-
nounced by the mayor. How-
ever, the city has removed the
job posting from its Web site.,

County planning


department vacancies filled


Anne McClung has been made planning director
and, subject to commission approval, Rob Lewis
will take over officially as executive director, the
position he has been filling temporarily.


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

Two top-level positions in
the Sarasota County Planning
and Development Services
Department now have per-
manent leaders.
Anne McClung, a 17-year
planner with the department,
was named planning director
by Executive Director Rob
Lewis, who had the word "act-
ing" removed from his title
last week when County Ad-
ministrator Jim Ley an-
nounced his choice of Lewis
as the permanent head of the
department.
"I am excited about this
opportunity and look forward
to providing the leadership
necessary to continue Sara-
sota County's efforts toward
quality planning and develop-
ment," McClung said. "I've
worked hard and laid a lot of
groundwork and it'll be excit-
ing to be part of the next step,
bringing to fruition projects
like the zoning ordinance and
the 2050 plan."
McClung, currently the
planning manager, started
working for Sarasota County
in 1987 when then-planning
director Jim Paulmann hired
her as an associate planner.
One of the biggest projects
handled by McClung was
heading the long-overdue
update of the county's zoning
ordinance, which was com-
pleted this past summer.
"I knew major surgery was
needed on the ordinance,"
McClung said. "It was very ful-
filling to be able to take on'
that big project which I want-
ed to work on for so long."
"She's a bright, tough pro-
fessional who's benefited from
many years of experience
with planning, in Sarasota
County," said former assistant
county attorney Alan Roddy,
now in private practice in
Sarasota. Ironically, it was
Roddy, a former planner with
the Athens-Clarke County
Planning Commission in
Georgia, who hired McClung
to her first planning position




D. E
A division of Sun Coast Media Group, Inc.,
S publishers of the Sun Herald Newspapers


as an intern with the planning
commission.
Later, the two renewed
their Georgia tie when they
met in Sarasota.
"I'm thrilled she's got the
job," Roddy said.
'Exciting time'
As planning director, Mc-
Clung will head up all
Sarasota County planning
efforts including the imple-
mentation of the 2050 regula-
tions and ongoing amend-
ments to the county's com-
prehensive plan. She will also
serve as a strategist for long-
range planning efforts
throughout other county
departments. She will move
into her new position over the
next six weeks.
"Anne's extensive experi-
ence with the county and her
relationships within the com-
munity make her an excellent
choice to assume this posi-
tion," said Lewis, who was
equally pleased at his
appointment.
"I'm looking forward to
serving the board and the
community," Lewis said. "It's


an exciting time for the com-
munity and I'm honored to
be given this opportunity."
Lewis has been serving as
the acting executive director
for the past four months after
former executive director
Steve Suau stepped down
from the position to resume
his role as the county's storm-
water manager.
"He has proven his ability
to be responsive and an orga-
nizational team player and
committed to the best possi-
ble community outcomes,"
Ley said.
A county employee since
1990, Lewis has served as
general manager of business
operations at Public Works,
an assistant to the deputy
county administrator coordi-
nator of the publimnprove-
ment districts an special
lighting districts, and creator
and chair of the fiscal coun-
cil.
Prior to joining Sarasota
County, Lewis worked with
the Florida League of Cities
and the Florida City and
County Managers Association
before joining the county.
Since Lewis is an executive
director,I under the county
charter Ley will seek ratifica-
tion of Lewis' appointment
from county commissioners
during their meeting on
Tuesday.

Downtown building




not considered historic


Rezoning to allow a new three-story retail,
office and condo building next to Luna's
restaurant could be approved Tuesday.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


The Venice Company had
no problem with claims a
cypress wood home at 221 N.
Nokomis Ave. might be a his-
toric structure.
If it is, president Jean Tram-
mell said she would donate it
to anyone willing to remove it
and preserve the residential
home, making way for a new
three-story downtown build-
ing called The Terraces.
Well, don't worry about that
whole historic preservation
issue some opponents of the
development hoped would
slow Venice City Council
approval.
"It is the opinion of Sara-
sota County Historic Preser-
vation Specialist Lorrie Mul-
downy and myself that the
structure at 221 N. Nokomis
Ave. has been, so greatly
altered that it no longer has
'vilue as a historic structure,"
wrote Dorothy Korwek, direc-
tor of Historical Resources for
Venice, in her findings report.
"The history of the structure,


who built it and who lived in it,
is more important than the
structure itself."
Council members will have
their final vote on The Terraces
at their regular meeting, 1:30
p.m. Tuesday at city hall. The
rezoning to allow the mixed-
use residential, retail and
office building passed the first
reading unanimously Dec. 14.

Kayak festival and competition

paddles into South Lido Beach
Sarasota County will host a KayakFestival and Greenland-Style Rolling Competition
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Jan. 15 and 16, at South Lido Beach, 2201 Ben Franklin Dr.,
Lido Key, Sarasota. The event is designed to enlighten the public about the sport and
kayaking in general, and to provide a venue for people to learn about the competitive
aspects of the sport.
Rick Storsberg, a parks naturalist with Sarasota County Parks and Recreation and a
certified American Canoe Association Kayak Instructor, is organizing the event.
"Each year Greenlanders celebrate their heritage by holding a competition based on the
.ei'Il de.ielope.j Ihr.:.ugh :enlurif ..f huniing c.ea Tmammans" notes Storsberg. "When
their kayaks tipped over, they had to'roll' them back upright quickly because theArctic
water is so cold. Here in Florida, we don't have to deal with the frozen temperatures of
Greenland. I think sunny Sarasota is a great place to hold this style of competition and
incorporate a festival into the event."
In the competition, kayakers will perform 29 different rolls and will be judged on ability
and technique. The festival will also feature guided tours; kayak instructors to teach
classes from beginner to advanced levels of kayaking; and an assortment of vendors and
event sponsors displaying kayak equipment and supplies.
The entire family is welcome at this event. Even for those who don't kayak, the event
will be an opportunity to witness a unique water competition. For more information contact
Rick Storsberg at (941) 915-11,81, or visit Sarasota County Parks and Recreation on the
Web at www.parksonline.scgov.net.

State says it has contract to buy county's rail corridor


Sarasota County finally owns the 12.4-mile
strip of land between State Road 72 and Venice,
but Florida transportation officials hold
a signed contract to acquire it
-; for "future multi-modal purposes."


- BYJACKGURNEY
.: PELICAN PRESS

t Florida Department ,of
- Transportation officials be-
gr lieve they have a legally bind-
-b ing contract to buy the 12.4-
-v mile railroad corridor recently
o, acquired by Sarasota County,
-:1 but County Administrator Jim
a' Ley insists there is language
,5 in the agreement that could
-7 nullify the sale.
or "An attachment to the
-2 agreement states there must
,? be a mutually agreed upon
3n management plan achieved,"
Ley told the Pelican Press on
- Monday. "The county's out is


that management plan. That's
what I'm being told by our
attorneys."
The language referred to
by Ley appears in Exhibit "A"
of the agreement. It reads:
"The county must execute an
agreement with the depart-
ment which outlines use of
the rail corridor by the county
and is in conformance with
the department's Rail Corridor
Management Plan."
Next week, county repre-
sentatives will confer with the
state agency about how a
"rails-to-trails" linear park can
be designed along the 100-
foot-wide strip of land that


will provide enough room for
light rail commuter train ser-
vice in future years.
Exhibit"A" of the agreement
states: "It is understood by
both parties that any recre-
ational trail built in the corri-
dor must be constructed to
one side of the corridor leav-
ing at least 70 percent of the
corridor for future multi-
modal purposes."
Binding
On June 24, commission
chair Jon Thaxton signed the
agreement on behalf of-the
county, and District Modal
Development Manager John
W. Starling on .behalf of the
state agency. The document
describes a purchase price of
$11.75 million.
"This contract is as bind-
ing as we could make it," said
Frank Fulmer, a Department
of Transportation eminent


domain attorney. "We're talk-
ing about a lot of money. We
want the property, and when
we put up the money the land
is coming to us."
To date, the state has put
$4 million into an escrow
account. It will continue to
make annual deposits in the
account over the next two fis-
cal years, until
such time as
the purchase
is price has
been banked.
The -$11.75
million would
fully reim-
burse the
county what it
paid for the Ley
corridor.
"If the state doesn't go
through with the purchase
and deposit all the money
specified in the contract, it
will be like a grant," Fulmer


explained. "The county can
keep the money that's been
put in and the land. We can
force this sale if we need to, so
long as we come up with the
money."
Second thoughts
Sarasota County purchased
the 12.4-mile railroad corridor
from CSX Transportation in a
deal brokered by The Trust for
Public Lands. CSX owned the
underlying land and had to
settle a long-term lease agree-
ment with Seminole-Gulf
Railway, aslow freight opera-
tor.
Last June, when the county
commission authorized a
joint participation .agreement
with the state, it envisioned
recapturing the $11.75 million
it paid for the corridor and
spending the money for con-
struction of the rails-to-trails
park project over the next few


years.
Second thoughts about
terms of the agreement began
to surface during the autumn
when several commissioners
questioned the "future multi-
modal uses" language con-
tained in Attachment "A" and
suggested it could restrict the
county's ability to construct a
trail system.
The county commission
has long insisted it wants to
create a recreational trail for
hikers, bikers and joggers, as
described in the 1983 National
Trails System Act. It allows the
U.S. Surface Transportation
Board to "rail bank" old rail-
road corridors as linear parks.
In the event of a national
emergency, federal officials
could theoretically reclaim the
old corridors and reestablish
critical railroad transportation
services to all areas of the
country.


'Veterans National Cemetery short list expected this month


a BYJACKGURNEY
-' PELICAN PRESS

SFederal officials will soon
' announce a short list of pre-
Sferred Southwest Florida loca-
Stions for a new veterans na-
tional cemetery. At least three
Sarasota County sites are ex-
pected to be among the final-
ists. The facility will be com-
- pleted and opened in 2008.
In early December, Nation-
al Cemetery Administration
representatives visited two
new possibilities in Manatee
County, two in Highlands
bi County and one in Sarasota
County, and revisited three in
Sarasota County. There are
currently 24 sites under con-
sideration.
- "We expect to receive a list
oc


of the top three or four by
mid-January," said Richard
Swier, chair of the Southwest
Florida National Cemetery Ad-
visory Committee. "All will un-
dergo an environmental re-
view that is expected to take
between six and nine months."
There are more than
400,000 World War II and
Korean War veterans living
within a 75-mile radius of
Sarasota. The nearest feder-
ally maintained burial facility
available is the Veterans Na-
tional Cemetery in Bushnell,
which is the third most active
in the country.
Last spring, Sarasota Coun-
ty planning officials announc-
ed that large property owners
could apply to sell off devel-
opment rights if they offer a


location that is acceptable to
federal authorities for the
construction of a new veter-
ans cemetery.
"We believe three Sarasota
County sites will be among
the finalists," Swier said. "Two
are located on Fruitville Road
and one on Clark Road. All are
within 8 miles of Interstate-75.
One of the criteria is conve-
nient access to the cemetery."
Moved up
The price tag for a new
national cemetery that is open
to veterans is between $35,
million and $50 million. Ideal
locations range between 450
and 550 acres. Negotiations
for the purchase of a site only
take place after the environ-
mental reviews.


"National Cemetery Ad-
ministration Construction Di-
rector Bob Holbrook has visit-
ed the 24 sites," Swier said.
"One could be purchased later
this year. The schedule calls
for planning and construction
documents in 2007, with con-
struction and the first burials
in 2008."
Sarasota County initially
amne on the federal radar
screen for a new veterans
cemetery in 2002 when it was
one of three communities
identified by the National
Cemetery Administration in a
document entitled: Volume 1:
Future Burial Needs.
At the time, the county
was tentatively included on a
list of potential sites for the
year 2016. But it quickly


moved up the list when the
Bay Pines National Cemetery
in Largo reached capacity and
was no longer capable of serv-
ing veterans requesting casket
funerals.
"I get calls every week from
World War II and Korean War
veterans who ask me when
the national cemetery is
coming," Swier. "We've come
a long way. Under the orig-
inal schedule, it wouldn't
have been open until 2019.
Congress still has to appropri-
ate the funds."
The closest national ceme-
tery that provides casket bur-
ial services for veterans is the
one!in Bushnell off 1-75. About
half of the'veterans who ask to
be buried in a national ceme-
tery request casket services.

the building at 401 South
Tamiami Trail an unsafe
building, have the city demol-
ish it and then place a proper-
ty lien of about $15,000
against the site so Venice
could recover its money.
City Manager Marty Black
and Hall have since backed
off that plan because there's a
$300,000 mortgage on the
property, and RKM Devel-
opment Corp. has filed a law-
suit against the owner for a
contract to sell it. Venice
would be third in line for any
money.
"In light of the existing
mortgage and pending litiga-
tion on the property, I would
not recommend placing city
funds at risk to demolish the
structure at this time," Black
advised council members.
"The code enforcement pro-
ceedings are under way, and
ultimately we hope to compel
the owner to take responsibil-
ity for the condition of the
property."
According to Hall, the city
can "compel" the owner by

than done. -Out of 67 school
districts in Florida, only two
- Leon andWakulla counties
- demonstrated countywide
improvements.
Sarasota County, as a dis-
trict, met 83 percent of the
AYP standards.
To meet the standard, said
one Leon County School offi-
cial, a concentrated effort
must be made at the district
and school levels.

Schools hit hard
Twelve out of 43 charter
and public schools in Sara-
sota County met AYP last
school year. The fate of the 31
other schools in Sarasota
County differs. Some would
say it's a case between the
haves and the have-nots.
If the school has a larger
number of students who can
afford to pay for reals, it will
not .be penalized. Title I
schools schools that re-
ceive federal funding due to a
large majority of students on
free or reduced-cost lunches
- will be penalized. Why are
poorer schools penalized
while others are not?


"The answer is money. The
feds can't exert any muscle
over schools not receiving
federal funds." said Susan
Ohanian, school teacher and
author of "The Folly of Edu-
cational Standards." Ohanian
is also the 2003 National
Council of Teachers of Eng-
lish Orwell Award winner.
In Vermont, Ohanian said,
a non-Title 1 school is threat-
ening to opt out of the state
test. Federal law, however, re-
quires all schools to test kids.


MAKING THE GRADE
Leon and Wakulla counties
were the only school districts
in the state to meet Adequate
Yearly Progress under the No
Child Left Behind Legislation.
Individual schools that don't
meet the standards this year
will be penalized more.


Kicking the victim
There are 11 Title I schools
in Sarasota County. Ten of
those schools could face
penalties after the 2005 FCATs
are taken. NCLB increases
penalty levels against Title 1


ON THE LINE LOCALLY
There are 11 Title 1 schools in
Sarasota County. Alta Vista
Elementary, Cranberry Ele-
mentary, Emma E. Booker
Elementary, Glenallen Ele-
mentary, Toledo Blade
Elementary, Turtle Elemen-
tary, Booker Middle, Heron
Creek Middle, Infinity Middle,
Wings Academy and Cyesis. If
10 of the schools do not make
improvements according to
federal laws, federal penalties
will be forthcoming.


schools with each passing
year. The 2004-05 test results
fall under the third year of
AYP standards.
Two options are available
to parents of students attend-
ing Title 1 schools after this
year's results: Parents can opt
their children out of the
school or utilize tutoring,
courtesy of the school district,
said Lori White, Sarasota
County associate superinten-
dent of curriculum and in-
struction.
"Five percent of the Title 1
allocation (is) for Supple-
mental Educational Serv-

ices," White said.
Harsher penalties are dol-
ed out to those schools that
fail to meet AYP standards in
years four through six. The
harshest penalty of all in-
cludes an overhaul of a failed
school's administration and
staff. The law, at that time,
requires that a failed school's
curriculum be totally chang-
ed to better benefit students.
"It's a general kicking of the
victim," Ohanian said. "This
doesn't happen in affluent
schools -not yet, anyway. It's
a grinding down of the poor. I
contend that if you want to
raise the test scores, then
raise their parents' income to
a living wage."

Federal law,
state enforcement
Sarasota. County schools,
by Florida standards, operate
in the top percentile. By fed-
eral standards, however, only
two school districts passed
AYP muster. Federal and state
standards have increased for
this school year.
"The proficiency require-
ment for each year is higher,"
White said. "The state plans
for benchmarks to be met by


2013."
Proficiency percentages in
the 2001-2004 school year
mandated 38 percent math
and 31 percent reading levels.
This year's increases call for
53 percent math and 48 per-
cent reading-proficiencies for
students.
"States like Florida insti-
tute excessive test prep, push-
ing academics in kinder-
garten, elimination of recess,
retention in third grade, high-
stakes test for graduation and
so on," Ohanian said. "Al-
though NCLB 'inspires' all
these harsh policies, states
and local districts are respon-
sible for instituting them."

choices, in spite of what we
teach in our educational pro-
grams," Short said. "We wear
bright shirts, flags, and we
always wear helmets. That's
our first rule."
Short said she rode 8,000
miles on her bike last year
and that was not her biggest
year.
Where is law
enforcement?
The law for bicycles in
Florida is quite simple: A
bicycle is a vehicle and sub-
ject to the same laws on the
road as cars, trucks and
motorcycles.
Venice Police Deputy Chief
Dan McGoogan, while not
defending or excusing riders
who break the law, put the
rider's safety into an interest-
ing slot.
McGoogan said he re-
members several years ago
when a bicycle rider slammed
into the rear ofaVenice patrol
car.
"They (bicycle riders) seem
to be oblivious to their sur-
roundings they are so fo-
cused on what they are
doing," McGoogan said.
McGoogan also said that in
some respects, people who
ride bicycles are not unlike
people who drive cars, trucks
and motorcycles.
"Regardless what kind of
vehicle they're in," he said,
"there are some that obey the
law and some who don't."
McGoogan could not say
how many citations VPD offi-
cers write for bicycle riders,'
only that "there have been
enforcement actions taken."
Police officials generally
agree that ticketing bicycle
riders for running stop signs
or making improper turns is
not at the top of law enforce-
ment's priority list.
One said, "Would taxpay-
ers rather have us spend our
time apprehending robbers
and rapists, or writing tickets
for people who ride bicycles?"
Doing all they can
The point that bicycles are
vehicles like cars.or motorcy-
cles when it comes to rules of
the roditis driven' home in the.
CCBC guidelines.
Of 36 guidelines, number-
17 explains a cyclists respon-
sibility best:
"Obey all traffic rules as if


you were in a car. A bicycle
operated on a roadway in the
state of Florida is classified as
a vehicle, and must adhere to
the same traffic laws as motor
vehicles, as well as few more
restrictive ones.
"For instance, unless per-
forming a left turn, you must
ride as close as practical to the
right side of the roadway. You
cannot operate a bicycle in a
lane opposing traffic in
other words, you must ride
with traffic, never against it,
so you cannot ride the wrong
way on a one-way street, etc.
"Refer to the pamphlet
'Bicycles Are Vehicles,' avail-
able from our club."
Short said the CCBC
preaches safety at every turn.
In every monthly newslet-
ter there is a front page article
on some safety-related item
with reminders to ride safely.
The club widely distributes
(public library, police station,
bicycle shops) ayellowpham-
plet titled, "Florida's Bicycle
Laws".
"We put them out wherev-
er we can," Short said. "If you
know of places we haven't
thought of, let us know."
Short admits the sport of
'bicycling is dangerous, and
said education is the key to a
safe ride.
"I think we are in the top
spot (in Florida) when it
comes to injuries and fatali-
ties," she said.
She said one reason may
be because a bicyclist's expo-
sure is greater due to the
weather,-people can ride 12
months a year in Florida.
It was noted that the same
was true of motorcycles.
"It bothers us when we see
accidents," Short said. "We
love to ride and if you are in a
serious accident, that means
you will not be able to ride
another day."
But it's not enough
While most, if not all, of the
organized clubspractice bicy-
cle safety, it is all up to the
individual rider (same with
cars and motorcycles) to put
written and spoken safety
rules into practice.
In'a three-month observa-
tion period by a UTn;c Gon-
dolier' Sin reporter, not one
bicNcle rider stopped for the:.
,fourway intersection of Pa-
lermo Place and Nokomis
Avenue near Bon Secours
Venice Hospital.

The reporter observed a to-
tal of 47 cyclists over the 90-
day period, and most did not
even bother to slow down for
the intersection. The intersec-
tion is marked by stop signs in
all directions.
The most egregious of-
fenders were a group of about
12 cyclists, obviously an orga-
nized group or club. They
were all wearing helmets and
bike shorts. They were going
full bore, an estimated 20
mph, headed south toward
the airport on Nokomis.
SThey did not even slow
down for the intersection.
The reporter turned left on
Nokomis and passed the
group by the hospital emer-
gency room. He slowed
enough to allow the cyclists to
catch up.
They bunched up behind
him still traveling about 20
mph, whipped around the
driver's side as the reporter
came to a full stop at San
:\arco,'totally ignored 'the,
stop sign, and fanned''left
(east) toward Riviera.
Some of the riders ob-
served were children, some
were adults.'

The proposed library must

The advisory board recom-
mended the proposed loca-

'At long last, something

"A library was in our revi-

"These fines piling up at

SORES FROM DENTURES
Even though dentures feel comfortable and there are no apparent
problems, denture wearers should still have an annual dental
examination. It takes a dentist only a few minutes to examine the oral
tissue for changes that could indicate developing problems. Denture
wearers should be particularly wary of a painless abrasion in the
Smouth.This is one of the reasons that periodic dental examinations are
recommended. A denture wearer should regularly feel around his or
Usher mouth, particularly under the tongue, to detect breaks in the tissue
V or to find painless "ulcers.".
Ordinary sores caused by the pressure and movement of dentures heal
in 10 to 14 days after adjustment of the denture by the dentist. If a sore
persists despite repeated relief of the denture base, the problem may
be more serious.The constant irritation of a denture, particularly under
the tongue, could be dangerous. Suspicious areas should be examined

by your dentist promptly.

Larry Evans,

protector of

Lemon Bay, dies

BY GAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER

Larry Evans, a life-long
Englewood resident and or-
Schid grower, who was known
in part for his unswerving
attempt to restore Lemon Bay,
died Thursday.
He was 79.
Evans, former owner of
West Dearborn Street's Blue
Pagoda Florist, spent much of
his life in Englewood.
Evans owned the flower
shop from 1969 to 2003.
He sold orchid plants and
seedlings, and created hybrid
orchids by breeding specific
pairs.
Evans met George Dabbert
of Venice's Dabbert Orchids
around 20 years ago.
Together they shared
plants and bounced breeding
ideas off each other.
SEvans was just in Dabbert's
shop last week, looking for
certain plants to breed.
"He made a lot of really
nice hybrids," Dabbert said. "I
know he shipped throughout
the world. He did everything."
He was hospitalized sever-
al times in 2003 and 2004, and
sold the Blue Pagoda to a for-
mer intern of his in June 2003.
Evans' second passion was
for the water he grew up on.
He told stories of his com-
mercial fishing days on Lem-
on Bay and his flying days
above it.
With time he became more
and more bent on cleaning up
the bay.
Evans led a meeting of some
200 residents and officials from
the U.S. Army Corps of En-
gineers in February 2003.

POLICE BEAT


Man arrested for
attempted kidnapping
A man told authorities he
wanted to pick up two girls
because they had nice figures,
a Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office report shows.
Fredric R. Richter, 63, 2500
block South McCall Road,
Englewood, was arrested and
charged with two counts each
of attempted kidnapping and
attempted false imprisonment.
The incident happened in
the 300 blockW. Dearborn St.,
Englewood, at 8:45 am., Jan. 6.
According to the police re-
port, Richter approached two
women, ages 19 and 17, as
they were walking to school
on West Dearborn Street in
Englewood.
He asked the women to get
into his vehicle so he could
give them a ride. They walked
toward Richter's SUV and he
told them to get into the back
seat.
The women stopped and
told Richter they would call a
taxi. He started to push them
toward the rear door and told
them, "I'm security, just get in
the car."
A witness pulled into the
parking lot and saw Richter
trying to get the victims into
his car. Richter started curs-
ing at the witness and kept
yelling he was "security."
Police were called and


arrested Richter.
At the jail, he told officers
he tried to get the girls
because they had nice figures,
and that one was white and
one was Hispanic. He said he
wanted to take the girls away.
He was asked where he
wanted to take them.
He told officers he wanted
to take them, "To the park
near the high school because
it was quiet there and he
could touch them."
Investigators asked Richter
if he had tried to lure girls into
his car before. He said he tried
to give a middle school girl a
ride, but she was too young
for sex.
Detectives asked Richter if
he was referring to a girl at Fray
and Dearb6rn streets on Jan. 5
in the morning and he said yes.
Richter said another wom-
an interfered so he could not
get the girl in the car.
Venice firefighters escape
injury on way to call
Two Venice firefighters
escaped injury when their fire
engine was sideswiped by a
truck on Interstate 75.
The fire medics were head-
ed to a roll-over accident
Thursday about 3:30 p.m.
"They were in the (far
right) emergency lane on the
east side of the interstate
when the truck turned into


them," Venice Fire Depart-
ment Assistant Chief Bob
Eairheart said. "He brushed
the rear of the cab."
The firemen were able to
continue on their way to
assist the roll-over.
The driver of the truck was
not injured. However, he was
issued a citation by the Flor-
ida'Highway Patrol, Eairheart
said.
Eighth DUI and
still driving
A woman with seven previ-
ous DUI arrests apparently is
going for some kind of record,
a Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office report shows.
Kimberly S. Hampton, 43,
was arrested and charged
with DUI fourth or subse-
quent (seven prior DUIs), dri-
ving while license suspended
with knowledge, and refusal
to submit to a breath test for
the fourth time.
A deputy stopped Hamp-
ton at 10:26 p.m., Jan. 5., for
Faulty brake lights.
Hampton smelled of alco-
holic beverage and had trou-
ble speaking. She was unable
to maintain her balance dur-
ing the field sobriety test.
She told deputies she had
nothing to drink.
According to Hampton's
driver license history, this was
her eighth DUI arrest. .


FDLE warns of tsunami



e-mail scams in area


The tragedy in Asia is just another excuse for
some people to try to con you out of money.


STAFF REPORT


The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement is warning
citizens to beware of one of
the latest e-mail phishing
scams, this one using the
Asian tsunami tragedy as a
ploy to bilk people out of
monetary donations and
steal their identity in the pro-
cess.
Phishing scam e-mails are
designed to trick the recipi-
ents into disclosing personal
information authentication
data such as account user
names, passwords, credit
card numbers, Social Security
numbers and home address-
es.
Most of these e-mails look
official, and as a result, recipi-
ents often respond to them,
resulting in financial losses,
identity theft and other fraud-
ulent activity.
Recent news reports indi-
cate that phishing e-mails


may be circulating that
attempt to exploit people's
concerns for the tsunami vic-
tims by asking them to do-
nate money to what appears,
on the surface, to be a chari-
table relief fund.
In order to donate money,
people are asked to enter
their personal information.
"Since there has already
been an arrest of a United
Kingdom citizen using this
scam and preying on people's
concern over the tsunami vic-
tims, it is important to edu-
cate the citizens of Florida to
not fall for this ploy," said Bob
Breeden, special agent super-
visor for the FDLE Computer
Crime Center. "E'mails sent
to you requesting a donation
should be checked out thor-
oughly with the sponsoring
organization before respond-
ing. I would strongly recom-
mend only using the official
Web site. of known disaster
assistance organizations to


make an online donation."
To find a legitimate organi-
zation to donate money to,
visit: usafreedomcorps.gov.
On this site, the public can
find a list of agencies accept-
ing donations for assistance
to those affected by the tsu-
namis.
Internet fraud is just one of
many computer crimes, in-
cluding cyber stalking, identi-
ty theft, child pornography,
viruses and worms.
FDLE recognizes the need
for action against computer
crime and created the Florida
Computer Crime Center
(FC3) in October 1998 to
expand FDLE's initiative to
investigate computer related
crime.
In addition to investiga-
tions, FC3 also offers training,
research and prevention.
Citizens can learn more
about computer crimes,
common complaints, viruses
and how to report a computer
crime at: fdle.state.fl.us/FC3.

Church construction begins in Osprey


After months of delays, Our Lady of Mount
Carmel Catholic Church is ready to build a multi-
use facility just in time for its fifth anniversary.


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

While most of the atten-
tion on Osprey's construction
boom has been focused on
the proposed Wal-Mart
SuperCenter, the Bay Street
shopping village and some
400 townhouses and condo-
miniums, none will probably
be completed as soon as the
$4 million multi-purpose
building in which Our Lady of
Mount Carmel Catholic
Church will hold worship and
social activities.
Concrete will be poured
this week for the building on a
22-acre tract of land behind
the U.S. Post Office on U.S. 41
a few hundred yards south. In
a campus setting between the
highway and Old Venice
Road, the area is being land-


escaped with lakes, picnic
areas and tree-shaded walk-
ing paths.
The new parish center
should be open and operat-
ing in time for the church's
observance of.its fifth birth-
day next fall.
Not easy
That achievement has
been far from easy. It took 287
days to secure appropriate
permits from Sarasota Coun-
ty. Site development has
involved removal of a grove of
palmetto trees and a simulta-
neous effort to retain sturdier
trees. Three lakes with depths
up to 17 feet were dug to cre-
ate retention ponds.
So much time was lost
before the necessary permits
could be obtained, the cost of'
the building rose from an


original estimate of $2.6 mil-
lion to $4 million. As a conse-
quence, the parish's fund-
raising effort was complicat-
ed.
Originally, it was thought
by church officials that the
$2.8 million raised to date
would satisfy the needs of
construction.
The desirability of a parish
in Osprey has been. a long-
standing one. For several
years, the Catholic Diocese of
Venice had held the 22-acre
tract for the purpose. Three
acres immediately south of
the post office on U.S. 41 will
be retained by the diocese for
possible development as
office buildings.
Three or more years in the
future, the church hopes to
build a chapel alongside the
building now under con-
struction.
But that hope, according to
Russell E Lehn, administra-
tive assistant, will depend on
the parish's success in raising
funds.'


Angelfish
For now, to meet the needs
of today's congregation, the
multi-purpose building will
provide space for 800 wor-
shipers at services and a
social activities hall for din-
ners, receptions and similar
gatherings of 500 people. A
commercial kitchen and large
serving area are planned in
the social activities portion.
In the other wing, eight
religious education class-
rooms and meeting rooms
will be located. Staff offices, a
conference room and recep-
tion areas are.in the plans.
The lobby will be high-
lighted by a 300-gallon salt-
water tank containing rare
and exotic fish of Southwest
Florida angelfish and trig-
ger fish, eels, lion and butter-
fly fish.
An acrylic tank, with stand
and canopy, has been de-
signed, built and donated to
Our Lady of Mount Carmel by
Seascapes Aquarium & Pet
Center, a Sarasota firm.


Flying Bridge restaurant's days are numbered


Three planned developments along Blackburn
Point Road will add 62 high-end dwelling units -
and enough traffic to lead some residents to ask
the county for a bike path.


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


A landmark on the Osprey
shoreline for more ,than 25
years, the Flying Bridge rest-
aurant will close next June.
A $32 million condomini-
um complex \ill rise in its

own covered boat slip, and
five other slips will be avail-
able for public sale at
$200,000 each.
Two similar condominium
communities are under con-
struction on adjoining tracts
along Blackburn, Point Road.
Altogether, the three develop-
,ments will total 62 livingunits
in a stretch of 3/8-mile east of
the bridge.
SPriced from $450,000 to
$1.9 million per unit, the
three promise access to the
Intracoastal Waterway via a
canal to be dredged deeper-
than is the case now.
Two' of the three will
include their own marinas
and boat slips. One will have a
restaurant.


Water views
Each townhome in the
Valencia project will be three
stories high about 40 feet
above grade, level and con-
tain 3,500 square feet of living
space. Each unit will be differ-
ent, but contain the same ele-
ments, including an oversized
two-car garage and storage
space at the entry level. The
two floors of living space
above will include three bed-
rooms; a den-office; a great
room; kitchen, dining and
mediarrooms; and three and a
half batiuooms. ,
All units will ha'e water
views to the north, south and
west. Wraparound terraces
will permit cooking outside
the area 'adjoining the
kitchen.
Si A 5-foot-high wall, trees
and landscaping will separate
the Valencia property from

developers intend to add
many trees and shrubs inside
the wall. They anticipate that

Regional mitigation plan saves county $15 million


BYWARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

A forward-thinking mitiga-
tion plan for infrastructure
construction projects will save
Sarasota County an estimated
$15 million during the next
several years while also pro-
viding environmental and rec-
reational benefits to residents.
Called the Regional Envir-
ongiental Mitigation Pro-
gram, the project will make
use of two large sites the coun-
ty purchased to consolidate
habitat mitigation in a few
parcels. Building and admin-
istering such projects on a
large scale in the Fox Creek
and Curry Creek locations will
make it easier to compensate
for unavoidable environmen-


tal impacts while promoting
a watershed approach to na-
tural resource conservation.
"Investing in the mitigation
up front for the next 25 years
worth of construction will
help expedite the construc-
tion of roads and other infra-
structure projects in the coun-
ty while providing sites that
have real environmental
value," said Frank Domingo,
general manager of the coun-
ty's Public Works Mobility
Department.
Piecemeal no more
When a county road, build-
ing or other project disturbs
wetlands or other sensitive.
habitat, federal and state regu-
lations require the county to
mitigate for the disruption.


Historically, local govern-
ments have approached miti-
gation piece by piece, project
by project, in small parcels. In
Sarasota, this meant the coun-
ty had to design, build and
maintain many small habitats.
The REMP will allow the
county to consolidate these
future smaller mitigation sites
into two areas, which' also
means plants and wildlife will
inhabit larger areas than they
would in the undisturbed
wild. County officials also plan
to create access to these miti-
gation lands for trails and
other passive recreation.
The Curry Creek site, be-
tween Albee Farm Road and
Pinebrook Road south of
Edmondson Road in the Ven-
ice area, will provide almost


20 acres of mitigation in the
form of mangroves, marshes,
uplands and more within the
coastal basin where most con-
struction and its mitigation
- occurs.
The county bought this
parcel in 2001 for about
$500,000.
The Fox Creek site, south-
west of Interstate 75 between
Cow Pen Slough and Fox
Creek, also near Venice, cov-
ers 140 acres of similar habi-
tat in the coastal basin, as well
as estuary and scrub. The
county bought this site, which
was slated to become a hous-
ing development, for about
$4 million in 2003.
Both parcels allow for mi-
tigation for all presently
planned projects and many


more yet to be devised, Do-
mingo said.
Cash back?
While the efficiency of
regional mitigation saves the
county money now, it also
saves money by purchasing
land in the coastal area before
the value gets any higher.
Furthermore, the county
may get cash back from these
projects, in part by using fill
dirt from wetlands construc-
tion for its landfill, and from
the Southwest Florida Water
Management District, com-
monly known as Swiftmud,
through mitigation for state
highway projects.
The county has tentatively
secured about $1 million from
the Florida Department of


Transportation for impacts
expected from the planned-'
widening of 1-75 in 2009.
"Sarasota County is one of
the more progressive counties
in our area," said Mark Brown,
a Swiftmud spokesman. "Sara-
sota is on the leading edge."
Brown said it is difficult for
counties to take such an ad-
vanced approach to mitiga-
tion, partly because it's politi-
callyhard to spend money now
for future benefits, but also.
because appropriate sites in,
affected areas are hard to find.
He said Hillsborough
County had done something.
similar a few years ago, but-i
few other government enti-
ties have had the vision and
ability to make such a com-.
mitment.


Public meetings on comprehensive plan amendments set


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


January will be a busy
month for Sarasota County
planners.
With workshops already
completed on the environ-
ment and transportation,
planners will hold six public
sessions during the month as
they take input on an update
of the county's comprehen-
sive plan.
The workshops pick up
with issues developed during
the Evaluation and Appraisal
Report process the county
went through earlier in 2004.
The topics and workshops


are scheduled as follows:
Neighborhood planning,
Jan. 11 from 6 to ,8 p.m. in the
Fruitville Library meeting
room, 100 Coburn Road,
Sarasota.
Parks, recreation and
open space, Jan. 13 from 6 to
8 p.m. in the Woodmere Park
meeting room, 3951 Wood-
mere Park Blvd., Venice.
Solid waste, Jan. 18 from
6 to 8 p.m. in the Fruitville
Library meeting room, 100
Coburn Road, Sarasota.
Water issues, Jan. 25 from
6 to 8 p.m. in the Sarasota
County Operations Center,
1001 Sarasota Center Blvd.,
Sarasota.


Urban residential capaci-
ty, Jan. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. in
the Woodmere Park meeting
room, 3951 Woodmere Park
Blvd., Venice.
The process
The EAR report which
the Florida Department of
Community Affairs approved
this fall-- contained an evalu-
ation of achievements since
the previous major amend-
ment cycle to the comp plan.
It also identified trends,
changing conditions and
major community issues that
needed to be addressed dur-
ing the 2005 update to the
comp plan.


Following the approval of
the EAR report, county plan-
ners began drafting amend-
ments to the comp plan based
upon the report and updated
data and analysis. Preparation
of the' amendments based
upon the EAR report are re-
quired by state laws and regu-
lations governing growth
management.
Those amendments to the
environment chapter will
form the basis of the work-
shop as planners seek public
input on their proposals.
The latest series of amend-
ments to the comprehensive
plan will be considered by the
county's planning commis-


sion and county commission-
ers next year following the
public workshops.
Policy change
While staff is engaged in
processing the EAR-based
amendments to the comp
plan, county commissioners
have agreed to-defer accept-
ing privately-initiated amend-
ments to the plan. Deferring
action on these amendments
will allow staff the time, to pre-
pare the amendments and
meet the state's. deadline for
submittal.
According to Anne Mc-
Clung, planning director for
the county, this policy change


will not prevent private parties
from suggesting amendments
to the plan. Any publicly ini-
tiated amendments that can--
not be accommodated as part
of the EAR process will be con-"
sidered by commissioners in
April for 'another cycle of,
comp plan amendments.
Residents interested in the:
comprehensive plan update
can have their names placed
upon a notification list by
sending an e-mail to plan-
ner@scgov.net with "notifica-
tion list" in the subject line, or,
calling 861-5140.

OUR VIEW


Why are gas prices so high? Because


are


ired of paying high prices for gasoline?
You may have to just get used to it.
That seems to be the only advice
available, since we could find no definitive
answer as to why gas prices seem to be
cheaper everywhere else than they are here.
Randy Bly, director of communications for
AAA Auto Club South, said there are a num-
ber of reasons gasoline prices may differ in
various areas of the state.
Tampa, for example, is a key distribution
I point for gasoline in Florida because barges
Carrying gasoline dock there. That is a reason,
Bly says, gasoline in Hillsborough County was
averaging about $1.80 a gallon last Friday com-
pared with about $1.90 or so a gallon here.


Bly said competition is another reason
gasoline prices vary. He theorized that some
areas hit hard by hurricanes may be paying
higher prices because many dealers have not
reopened.
Also, he said, areas where only a few com-
panies or distributors dominate the market
lack competition. And, Bly indicated; higher
county taxes could account for higher gas
prices.
Finally, Bly said, cost of living plays a role.
Naples and Fort Myers/Cape Coral, he said,
have a higher cost of living than Tampa or
Pensacola which, by the way, has the
cheapest gas in Florida at $1.77 a gallon as of
last week.


None of those scenarios seems to be
affecting prices locally.
With very few exceptions, most local deal-
ers here.have reopened, so that explanation
falls flat. Transportation costs from Tampa -
which Bly said could add to the price of gaso-
line should be minimal since trucks carry
more than 600 gallons and the distance is less
than 100 miles.
That leaves few explanations for why we
are paying 10 cents more than Tampa
motorists and up to 30 cents a gallon more
than drivers in Georgia and South Carolina.
Of course, drivers in Gainesville and Fort
Lauderdale might be asking the same ques-
tions. Gas in Gainesville averaged $1.93 a gal-


Ion, and if you filled up in Fort Lauderdale last
Friday, you also paid about $1.93 a gallon -
which went up a penny from earlier last
week.
Paying high gas prices is a tough pill to
swallow when, as Bly pointed out, the cost of
crude oil is going down lowering prices
across most of the nation.
Prices here began a slow decline over the
weekend especially in the Englewood area.
But don't expect costs around here to equal
those of our neighbors to the north anytime
soon.
The only real alternative.is to quit buying
gas for a while. A drop in demand is the only
message retail distributors understand.


' Publishing Wednesday,

Friday and Sunday


BOB VEDDER
- COLUMNIST


SOver the years the Gondo-
ier Sun has frequently chang-
,1ed its name and the days it
publishes. In fact, comingthe
Seek of Jan. 17 we will make
our 14th frequency change.
fWe will be publishing on three
b~days: Wednesday, Friday arin
Sunday.
Let me take you back to
Carroll Williams, who found-
ed the paper in 1946. He start-
ed the" paper as the 'Venice
Gondolier on a Wednesday,
which has been the most pop-
ular day we have published.
Within a few months he had
changed to Fridays, and two
years later to Thursday.
Each new owner knew the
secret to greater success was a
different day. So when Ed Ball
bought the paper in 1962 he
changed back to Friday and
soon after added a second day,

droppedd the word "Venice."
L_ Then Linldsay-Schaub (a
group headquartered in De-
catur, Ill.) bought the paper in
1967 and quickly changed the
days to Monday and Thurs-
day. That lasted a pretty long
time until 1977, when Der-
ek Dunn-Rankin became part-
ners with. Lindsay-Schaub.
Right after purchase the name
jwas changed to the Sun Coast
J Gondolier. In early 1978 the
days -were changed to Thurs-
J day and Sunday.
In 1982 the cycle was
changed to what has been the
most popular combination,
""Wednesday and Saturday. In
1983 the name reverted to the
Venice Gondolier.
The big change came in
1984, when we ventured into
publishing three days, Mon-
day, Wednesday and Saturday,
which changed for a short
period in 1990 to Wednesday,
Saturday, Sunday,
With the recession in full
swing in 1991, we decided to
'go back to Wednesday and
Saturday, where we have been
since. These 13 years have
been the longest stretch with
the same combination:
The time has come for us to
give our customers more
products and more opportu-
nities to showcase theirs
goods and services. We landed
on the new combination for
many reasons, with some -
but only minor misgivings.
We liked the spacing of the
publication dates, which
Helps give you a strong news
product every edition.
Sunday is a great reader
Sday, as all surveys show. So we
wanted to give you and our
L-advertisers the advantage of


getting lots of local news on
Sunday. This gives us a chance
to add a lot of things we just
have not been able to squeeze
in, but all things you have
wanted.
Bob Mudge and his staff are
hard at work putting those
things together. They will in-
clude a history page, a seniors
page, more puzzles (a good
Sunday pastime) and more
and bigger pictures from our
talented photographer, Jeff
Tavares.
We will have a social col-
umnist, more sports colum-
nists and a lot more guest
columnists of a wider variety.
' We have heard from many
of you with suggestions on
what to include and changes
to make, and they have really
been helpful. Please send your
comments to Bob Mudge at
200 E. Venice Ave., Venice, FL
34285, or e-mail them to
bmudge@yenicegondolier
.com.
We are excited about the
change and hope-you will be
too. Thanks for being such
good customers.


By's Crack: (My dad,
Byron Vedder, who is
also "By," has been a part
of the Gondolier since
1967 and has seen most
of the changes I referred
to above.)
There is really a good
reason for lawyers. Think
how boring the world
would be if everything
were as simple as it really
is.

******
A couple of people relayed
some things they think should
be done this year. One lady
called and said all local restau-
rants should be required to
provide diaper changing sta-
tions in their restrooms. I am
not' sure they would fit 'in a
few, like Luna.
A few people think the light
on the northside of the Hat-
chett Creek Bridge is a real traf-
fic congestion-maker and a
waste, at least the way it is con-
figured. Apparently unlike all
other lights it does not have
computer timing and triggers
on it. So more likely than not
you will be stopped even
though there are no cars. The
chamber and the city should
ask whomever to upgrade this.
It isn't even on flashingyellowat
night, like Tampa Avenue just
on the other side of the bridge.
I forgot to mention I hope
that Venice MainStreet gets a
new director (which it is start-
ing to look for) and gets back
on solid financial footing. With
Judy Lawrence leading the
way, there is no doubt that will
happen.

I was very disappointed
that in settling the escheated
properties in North Port that
lots were not set aside or given

Jaywalkers taking life in their own.feet


Editor:
The city ofVenice spends a great deal of effort and money on
the plant beds along Venice Avenue only to have adults who
should know better trample them.
Jaywalking is an epidemic along Venice Avenue and at the
Venice Little Theatre. The parking police should enforce the
law, if there is one, or council should enact one if there isn't one.
Crosswalks are never more than 50 feet away and have clear
Florida Department of Transportation-compliant signage.
Jaywalking is dangerous even with a 20-mph speed limit, as
many of our foreign and out-of-town visitors don't expect jay-
walking.
And with the SCAT, bus terminal at the old train station,
there is a significant auto-pedestrian problem at the north end

Censored 2005: The top 25 censored media stories of2003-4


LORRAINE COCCARO
COLUMNIST


There is a mission afoot.
Project Censored is deter-
mined that we find out what
"news didn't make the news"
and why.
Scholars, librarians and
concerned citizens around
the world examine between
700 and 1,000 news stories


each year and submit them to
200 Sonoma State University
faculty, students and com-
munity members. Twenty-
five stories are selected and
ranked in order of impor-
tance.
These are featured in the
yearbook, "Censored: The
News That Didn't Make the
News" and on the Web at pro
jectcensored.org. It is worth a
read.
These stories delve into the
issue and its complexities. In
story No. 25, "Wal-Mart
brings Inequality and Low
Prices to the World," we are
told what we already know -
low wages, poor benefits,
squeezing producers and
predatory pricing give Wal-
Mart an advantage in the


United States. But what we
aren't told is, that Wal-Mart is
not only a power in this coun-
try, but also worldwide.
By buying up whole
chains of supermarkets, Wal-
Mart has more than 1,494
units in foreign countries: in
Mexico (641), Puerto Rico
(53), Canada (236), Argentina
(11), Brazil (144), China (35),
South Korea (15), Germany
(92) and the United Kingdom
(267). The question is raised,
"Do we want a world run by
Wal-Mart, where raw eco-
nomic muscle of a huge glob-
al retailer can outprice any
local competitor ard put
them out of business?"
Agribusiness, in story No.
19, "Global Food Cartel Fast
Becoming the World's Super-


market," is described as doing
the same as Wal-Mart on the
food production business.
"By cooperating with one.
another rather than compet-
ing, transnational corpora-
tions escape the scrutiny of
federal anti-trust regulators
and manipulate the market
through 'non-merger alli-
ances.' In 2002, the world's
two largest seed corporations,
DuPont and Monsanto, an-
nounced they would agree to
swap their key patented agri-
cultural technologies and
drop all outstanding patent
lawsuits.... As fewer corpora-
tions control each stage of
food production, farming is
becoming a kind of serfdom."

nonemergency flying between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. and ban recre-

COCCARO from page 12A


That brings us.to story No.
S1, "Wealth Inequality in 21st
Century Threatens Economy
and Democracy." Since the
1970s, wealth inequality has
increased sharply. We have
heard that the top 1 percent
of the U.S. population now
owns about a third of the
wealth in our country. But
there is little discussion of this
Sor the trend tlhat the bottom
95 percent is actually losing
ground and that the middle
class is becoming smaller and


smaller.
We do not discuss the tax
shelters that have shifted the
tax burden from capital to la-
bor. During Eisenhower's ad-
ministration corporations paid
35 percent of the tax bill. Now
they pay less than 10 percent.
Globally the inequality is
even more striking: "Today
the top 400 income earners in
the United States make as
much in a year as the entire
population of the 20 poorest
countries in Africa (more


than 300 million people)."
Demonstrating the wide
swath that corporate power
cuts are story Nos. 10, "New
Nuke Plants: Taxpayers Sup-
port, Industry Profits;" 17,
"U.S. Government Represses"
Labor-Unions in Iraq in Quest
for Business Privatization;"
and 6, "The Sale of Electoral
Politics.'" Fur stories on enei-
gy and 'il do the same.
Finally, let me list five more
stories ignored or under-
reported by the media that


are discussed by Project Cen-
Ssored: No.24, "Reinstating the
Draft;" No. 4, "High Levels of
Uranium Found in Troops
and Civilians;" no. 7, "Con-
servative Organization Drives
Judicial Appointments;" No.
3, "Bush Administration Cen-
sors Science;" and No. 2,
"Ashcroft vs. the Human
Rights Law that Holds Corp-
orations Accountable."
How many of these stories
did Fox news deliver in all
their complexity? They are


available on the Web.
We are woefully ill inform-
ed. There is more coverage of
Scott Peterson, the fertilizer
salesman who. murdered his
wife, than any of the above
topics that affect our whole
society.
Each of these stories shows
how, bit by bit, we are losing
our treasured democracy.
Censored 2005 uses a quota-r
tion from U.S. Appeals Court
Judge Douglas J. Keith as its
motto: "Democracies die be-


hind closed doors."

Venice. improved to 5-7
overall and 1-2 in district.
Manatee fell to 2-9 and 0-3.
Venice, which was a dismal
17-for-33 at the free throw
line; had a seemingly safe 42-
32 lead following a dunk by
Defter Jackson with' 4:51
remaining. However, Manatee
scored six straight to make
things interesting.
An intentional foul- and
theii a-technical foul against
Mahatee in the final minute
world help Venice notch the
victory. With 40 seconds left,
Kyl$ Abney was cut down for
an offensive board. He made
ong free throw and George
Stritz added two technical free
throws to give Venice a safe 47-
38 advantage.
Sale Lyons led the way
with nine points.Venice's scor-
ing vas balanced. Jackson and

The 38-year-old Voigt

and takes on his new respon-
sibilities with the Nationals

"The Nationals were look-

name was thrown in the mix,"
saidVoigt, a slick-fielding out-
fielder in seven big league
seasons. "I was in the middle
of a multi-year contract with
the Braves, but the Braves
said they wouldn't hold me
back from talking with anoth-
er team at the Major League
level."
Voigt flew to baseball's
winter meetings in Anaheim
and talked with Nationals
manager Frank Robinson and
brass Jim Bowden and Tony
Siegle.
"We talked about disci-
pline, strategy and person-
nel," Voigt said. "It was inter-
esting, but I was a little hesi-


tant at first. Frank called me
back and I reconsidered and
decided to
take the job."

Skelton new JV baseball coach


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


With the dedicated and lik-
able Pete Dombroski having
moved out to pasture, Venice
High baseball, czar Craig
Faulkner needed to find a car-
ing, quality individual to take
over the reins of the junior
varsity program.
He has found the man in
Wayne Skelton.
SSkelton, an assistant foot-
ball coach and driver's educa-
tion coach, is getting ready
for the new season, which is
right around the bend.
"I know Craig runs a
tremendous program and
that Pete did a great job with
the junior varsity," Skelton
said. "I stress discipline and
that young athletes give


everything they have. If they
do that, we'll succeed and
have fun."
Dombroski was JV coach
for 13 years and produced
more than 200 victories.
"My job is to prepare
fresh e,n
and sopho-
m o r es
to be suc-.
cessful at the
varsity level,"
Skelton said.
"If we take
care of those
things, wins
will take care Skelton
of them-
selves."
Skelton played football
and baseball at Einstein High
in Maryland just outside of
the District of Columbia. He.


went on to attend the Uni-
versity of Maryland. After
graduating, he coached high
school baseball for eight years
in Oakland Mills, Md.
Skelton came to Florida
in.. 1990 and worked for
Sarasota County Parks and
Recreation before coming to
Venice High three years ago.
He lives in south Venice and
has a son, Ryan, who plays
in the Venice Pythons AAU
program.
In 1991, Skelton was an
assistant football coach at
Cardinal Mooney, which had
a standout player named
John Peacock. Peacock is now
an assistant- grid coach at
Venice High.
Bill Schneelock and Rich
SCurcio will stay on as V as-
sistants .

But without a doubt the
highlight of the Lady Indians'

second quarter when center
Lisa Hough scored a putback.
The basket, which put

Sandburg Shannon

that man in Larry Shannon.
SShannon, a former foot-
ball and track standout at
Bradford High out of Starke,
is excited about reviving the
program at \VHS.
"Our goal is to get Venice
High School and the com-
munity excited about track
again," said Shannon, who
teaches technology educa-
tion. "We want to have alot of


students participate. I know
a lot of the football players
come out, but there are a lot
of athletes, who like to run

- Shannon is also an assis-
tant football coach at Venice

In fact, Shannon is more
widely known for football. He
was an All-State Honorable
Mention receiver at Bradford
and went on to excel at East

drafted in the third round by
the Miami Dolphins.

Venice has won the only

Time for new shoes


Some people are cheap
just for the sake of being
cheap. Others horde their
money because there isn't
much to go around.
I'm a little bit of both, as
the worn-down treads on my
Beast running shoes prove.
The smooth soles that
once had grooves aren't the
only indicator. A spot has
worn off on the heel area of
my left shoe. If my sock drops
below this spot, the shoe rubs
the back of my ankle raw to
the point of bleeding.
And then there's the blis-
ters on the top part of my toes
from rubbing against the in-
side of my shoe. Nearly all of
my interior padding inside
both shoes is gone.
A weird side of me first
saw this as a manly declara-
tion of my toughness.
Now it just hurts. It's diffi-
cult to keep bandages from
falling off my ankle and bust-
ed blisters.
Maximum mileage
Depending on who you
talk to, running shoes should
be retired after logging any-
where between 300-500
miles. Heavier runners like
me in the 200-plus pound
category tend to beat up
shoes a little quicker, so sug-

BACK OF THE PACK


gested replacement miles are
closer to about 300.
A quick check of my train-
ing log reveals my current
pair of Brooks have a little
more than 600 miles.
Whoops. This is dangerous
because many running ex-
perts have told me training on
broken-down shoes increases
the risk of impaet-related
injuries like shin splints,
stress fractures, tendinitis and
general soreness in the knees.
I am not an expert on
selecting a,pair of running
shoes, but here are some
basic tips for the first-time
shoe buyer:
Store choice Try to get
fitted and discuss your shoe
purchase at a specialty run-
ning store, where the store


clerks also are runners. Sales
people who actually use a
product tend to offer the
most honest and informed
opinions.
*Your goals -What do you
want to do in these shoes?
That's a question you need to
answer in order to select the
best pair. Identify how many
miles a week you plan to run,
your body weight, aggressive-
ness of workouts and running
surfaces.
Money You can spend
well over $140 for the latest
Nikes, but you don't have to.
Much like new car shopping,
look for last year's discontin-
ued models that are marked
down. If you find the right
deal, a dependable pair of
running shoes can be bought
for between $50-$80.
As for my new shoe pur-
chase, the checkbook tells me
to keep waiting another few
weeks. Luckily, I have a full
box of bandages for my ankle
and toes.
Good luck and I'll see you
around at the Back of the
Pack.

Don't ask Tom Warner


about DUI checkpoints

A breath test at a DUI checkpoint showed Tom
Warner was not in the least impaired, but
police arrested him anyway for drunk driving.
The state attorney later dismissed the charges.

BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER 11_

So you think honesty is the
best policy when stopped by
the police? Convince Tom
Warner.
Tom Warner, 59, of Water-
ford, was arrested at a DUI
checkpoint on Albee Road
Sept. 24 at 10:38 p.m. He had
been fishing with four friends
that afternoon and was on
his way home.
"When I came through the -
checkpoint, they asked me if I
had had anything to drink and
I said yeah, three or four beers
that afternoon," he said. "I also
had returned from California
with a little jet lag and one of
the things they keyed on was
my eyes were bloodshot."
Warner said he tried his
best to convince the police he
was not impaired.
"I told them I do not drive
drunk," he said.


Off to the House
of Many Doors
Warner said he does not
have a warm, fuzzy feeling
about DUI checkpoints.
'"Even prior to this," he
said, "I thought they were an
invasion of privacy."
He doesn't feel any love
for the' arresting officers,
either.
"Once I registered zero," he
said, "I should have been
released."
Instead, Warner was hus-


tied off to the South County
Jail at the Venice police sta-
tion on Ridgewood Avenue.
He was booked and later
transported to the North
County Jail, where he lan-
guished until 3 p.m. the next
day. That's when a judge
released him on his own rec-
ognizance.
It's about time
It took the state attorney
until Dec. 8 to make a deci-
sion on whether to prosecute.


"We were set for trial when
they dismissed the charges,"
Harrison said.
Warner still .has his job
working for the county's in-
formation and technology
department.
He said the arrest was
humiliating for him and his
family. He said his wife is a
cancer patient (in remission)
and the incident added stress
to her life.
"Not only that, I was sup-
posed to report to the EOC


(Emergency Operations Cen-
ter) for Hurricane Jeanne,"
Warner said, "but I was in
jail."
Harrison said he is now
working to have the Warner's
DUI arrest expunged.
"Expungment means they
have to physically destroy the
records," he said. "You can
legally deny it ever hap-
pened."

You don't have to be an
expert witness to read Tom
Warner's breath test results.
The column of O's means
there was no alcohol in his
system after being arrested
for drunk driving.

Breath test: 0.00
Warner took afield sobriety
test (there is no quantified
pass or fail, only the officer's
judgment). The officers felt
Warner was impaired and
arrested him. It was Warner's
first arrest for anything, ac-
cording to, his attorney, Robert
Harrison.
About 20 minutes later,
still at the scene, police asked
Warner to take a breathalyzer
test.
"They always wait 20 min-
utes or so to make sure you
keep everything down before
they give you the test, even at
the jail," Harrison said.
Warner took the test and
the results were 0.00. That
means there was no evidence
of alcohol in his system. A
subsequent urine test re-
vealed the same results for
drugs. (Harrison said it takes
several weeks for urine test
results to come back.)

Choir performs in a rock church


STORY BY BETTY ARNOLD GUEST WRITER

Senice Presbyterian Church Choir recently
sang its way across Scandinavia,
stopping in St. Petersburg, Russia, for
a concert.


Flying in from both United
States and Canadian cities,
members of the choir of the
Venice Presbyterian Church
met in Copenhagen, Den-
mark. They were there for the
beginning of a singing tour of
Scandinavia.
We had local guides in
each city we visited and free
time for exploring on our
own. We also had our own
guide who was fluent in Eng-
lish, Danish, Swedish and
Norwegian.
In Copenhagen we were
amazed at the extensive bicy-
cle traffic, especially outside
our hotel. We quickly mas-
tered the train to the down-
. town area. Some of us went
on canal tours, others map-
ped out walks, museums and
other attractions before head-
ing off to explore the city. The
next morning we toured
Kronberg Castle, site of the
Hamlet legend. Later, we
enjoyed an evening at Tivoli
Gardens.
That evening proved to be
the end of an idyllic journey
for our accompanist Julia
Morris-Meyers, whose purse
was stolen while she used the.
hotel computer the following
morning. To replace her pass-
port and acquire a new
Russian \isa became a saga
that occupied Morris-Meyers
and our guide. They spent
countless hours in various
embassies and much time on
the phone.
Our firs: concert was per-
formed in the Christians
Church, a brick and stone
Lutheran church in Copen-
hagen. There was a large
sanctuary with a small choir
organ at the front. This
worked- well for our choir,
which sang many of its an-
thems a capella. The sound in
the room waslovely. The con-
cert featured the cantata.
"Rejoice Ye Christians," by
Danish composer Dietrich
Buxtehud. That evening, we
boarded a ferry (really a cruise
ship) and crossed to Oslo.
There was a lot to do on
board, including dining at a
sumptuous buffet while we
cruised past constantly
changing views of the coast-
line.
We enjoyed our tours of
Oslo, especially the Viking
Ship and Kon Tiki museums.


Our second concert was per-
formed there in an 11th cen-
tury church, the Gamle Aker
Kirke, which was originally a
Stave church. It was built
from stone and slate with
walls 3 feet thick: Erected in
1080, this church is the oldest
standing building in Oslo.
Warren Apple, our choir di-
rector, had us sing divided in
the chancel, something most
choir directors do not like. In
that room, the sound was
exquisite a truly moving
experience. The program fea-
tured a folk hymn, "In Heav n
Above," by Norwegian com-
poser Edward Grieg.
From Oslo, we traveled by
bus to Stockholm. The city
tour guide in Stockholm was a
tiny woman garbed in a
trench coat and a Mary Pop-
pins hat. When she opened
her umbrella, we fully expect-
ed to see her fly away.
We especially enjoyed the
Vasa museum, which con-
tains a 17th century warship
that was salvaged from the
seabed. We managed to find
shopping time in Stockholm
and especially enjoyed the
old town section of the city
Our third'concert was in the
Katarina Kirka, a church that
burned a fewyears ago. When
rebuilt, the sanctuary made it
difficult to sing and hear each
other. Nevertheless, we had
an excellent audience re-
sponse, especially when we
sang the Swedish folk song,
"The Holy Wings."
The next day, we traveled
to Uppsala, where our guide
was a student of languages
and Rune stones. Her mas-
ter's degree thesis was on
Rune stones. We enjoyed this
university city very much,
toured the Lutheran cathe-
dral and ate and shopped in
the downtown area. The city
is a lovely university town
with old and new buildings,
much like.the beautiful col-
lege campuses most of us
have seen. We toured Drot-
tningholm, summer resi-
dence of the royal family. Its
grounds were manicured and
neat and the views were won-
derful. In the home, we were
introduced to faux marble, a
painting technique that repli-
cates real marble. It often was
used to give the appearance
of marble on less expensive

Sweden regularly make over-

their luck with the "bandits."
In Helsinki, our city tour
included a stop at the Temp-
pliaukian Church, which is
carved into the side of a rocky
bluff. During our free time,
with the help of our energetic
guide, we often added addi-
tional activities. We enjoyed
visiting this clean, cosmopoli-
tan city. Its streets are wide,
the buildings interesting and
modern. Unlike NewYork and
Paris, it does not feel crowd-
ed.
Our fourth concert was
presented inside the Teamp-
pliaukian Church, an experi-
ence to remember. This is a

from rock that was on the site.
Its walls are stone, its floor
and balcony seating are made
of concrete. The ceiling is
copper, wound in a huge cir-
cle that appears braided. Also
madeof copper are the organ
pipes and such finishing de-
tails as the communion rails
and the edge of the balcony.
Singing in that room, espe-
cially "OnwardYe Peoples," by
Finnish composer Jan Sibel-
ius, was an inspiring experi-
ence. The sounds coalesced
beautifully and the audience
was most attentive. Usually
there is a constant movement
in the sanctuary due to the
very high number of tourists
who pass through but, when
we were singing it was very
quiet and most people stayed
through the concert. They
were lucky they did, because
Apple played the Widor
"Toccata" at the end.
The next day we traveled
by train to St. Petersburg,
Russia. Despite the horror
stories we had heard of cross-
ing the border into Russia, it
wasn't bad. After a short delay,
we went forward into Russia.
We met our Russian guide, a


history professor, the.follow-
ing day. She was very interest-
ing and knowledgeable. Our
city tour was pleasant and
interesting. St. Petersburg cel-
ebrated its 300th arnniersary
last summer, as St. Peters-
burg. Fla.. celebrated its 100th
anniversary. Many buildings
had been restored as the city
was spruced up for tde tricen-
tennial. The Russian city is
grand everything about it
is grand. Its river, the Neva, is
wide, its bridges long and its
roads are actuallywide boule-
vards. Our tour included the
Peter and Paul fortress, but
our favorite site was the
Hermitage, originally the
winter home of the tsars. It is
now a large museum. We had
a half-day tour there, which
was not nearly long enough
to see everything the spec-
tacular rooms, high ceilings,
grand walls, floors and
numerous paintings, sculp-
tures and other artifacts.
Many of us returned the next
day. Others went on a canal
tour or walked through the
city.

For the last 66 years, one of
this nation's best-kept de-
fense secrets has been the
United States Coast Guard
Auxiliary. The United States
Coast Guard Auxiliary is the
civilian, uniformed volunteer
component of the United
States Coast Guard as well as
the lead volunteer force in the
Department of Homeland
Security. Founded in 1939 by


an act of Congress, the U.S.
Coast Guard Reserves we
redesignated the Auxiliary in
1941. The 38,000 volunteer
men and women donate
thousands of hours in sup-
port of Coast Guard air and
sea missions, such as Search
& Rescue, Public Education,
Marine Environmental Pro-
tection and Maritime Do-
main Awareness. The Auxil-


iary provides service to the
nation at bargain-basement
prices.
In the next few years, as the
Coast Guard grows in both
manpower and assets, the
need for the Auxiliary will
grow as well.
To learn more about
becoming a member, call Al
Bidwick, public affairs officer,
at 492-5904.

WORDS WORTH
HEARING









By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist

Q. There is a health food
store nearby which sells ear
candles for the removal of
ear wax. How well do they
work?
A. The manufacturers of ear
candles claim that they can
remove wax and debris from
deep within the ear canal by
the way the candle burs. They
claim that as the candle burs,
"negative pressure" is created
in the ear canal which draws
wax up and out of the ear.
During a typical session,
whether done at home or where
this service is offered, the
participant will lay on his side
with ear facing up. The tip of
the ear candle is inserted in the
ear and the candle is then lit.
When it burs down to half its
size, it is extinguished and
removed along with any wax
from the ear. Sounds simple but
does ,it work? NO! Ear
candling does nothing to
remove wax from the ear and it
poses a significant danger to its
participant. In order to generate
enough "negative pressure" to
remove wax from the ear, the
force would have to be so great
that it would rupture the ear
drum! Research has confirmed
that no "negative pressure" is
created by burning ear candles
and any source suggesting such
a notion is false. Before
embarking on any wax removal
program, first visit an
audiologist who can suggest
that best method of cerumen
removal for you. Call the
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance Centers
at 492-4327 to schedule your
appointment today.

Potluck, golf clinic and

EXPO kick off 2005


ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST

The South Venice Civic As-
sociation's 50th anniversary
activities have begun.
Last night the SVCA began
its first celebration with an
old-fashioned potluck sup-
per, just like the founders
enjoyed back in 1955.
Members and newcomers
came in with everything from
fancy casseroles, Italian, Ger-
man and Swedish specialty
entrees, assorted salads,
breads and desserts.
Neighbors met neighbors
and newcomers visited with
many longtime members
who told stories about the be-
ginnings of the SVCA.
It was a warm and truly
enjoyable event.
George Pimental, a new

clinic at the SVCA Com-
munity Center, 720 Alligator
Drive, starting tomorrow, Jan.
9, at 1 p.m. Just bring a few
clubs if you can 7 iron, 9
iron and wedge.
If you don't have any clubs,
simply bring your enthusi-
asm.
He will be addressing
basic fundamentals and the
short game. Instructor
George is a golf coach from
Bridgewater, Mass. He wants
to share his experience to
interested golfers for the
winter season.
Sounds like a wonderful
opportunity to get free golf
lessons and tips.
Certainly this must be on
your appointment calendar
by now: The fifth annual
South Venice Beach Expo is
Saturday, Jan. 15, 9 a.m.-3
p.m. at the South Venice
Community Center.
It features 35 booth ex-
hibitors (with terrific free
drawing gifts), Publix food
court, and the SVCA will have
an area to visit with everyone
to tell them about the services
and benefits of membership
and hand out community
information.
The Venetian Waterway
Park supporters will also have
a booth outside the center
near the Bill Buck Chevrolet
automobile exhibits.
As we say in the Venice
Gondolier Sun ads you have
been reading: "Come on

The elephants were always
Kay Mason's favorite animal
at the zoo when she was a lit-
tle girl.
But it wasn't until her sister
gave her a small elephant fig-
urine in the 1970s, when Kay
was an adult with two chil-
dren, that the now 65-year-
old woman started collecting
them.
Friends and family who
knew she had an elephant
passion often bought them
for her as gifts and by 1993,
the year she and her husband
Bob, 69, moved to Florida, she
had amassed 150 pictures,
postcards and figurines.
And the collection had
only just begun. In the 11
,years since the Masons mov-
ed to Florida, Kay's collection
has grown to more than 1,600
pieces of pachyderm para-
phernalia that covers the
walls, floors and shelves of
their Punta Gorda apartment.
There's the elephant made
of rope that sits atop the TV,
ceramic Dumbo figurines, a
metal statue of the Hindu god
Ganesh and even a rusty-col-
ored piece of elephant toenail
among the collection.
"The only ones I throw
away are the ones that break,"
Kay said while sitting in the
living room of.her elephant-
covered living room last week.
"'There's an elephant in every
room in the house."
The tour of elephants be-
gins in the couple's bedroom,
where an elephant comforter

covers the bed and where Kay
keeps the first elephant she
ever collected, the one her sis-
ter gave her more than 30
years ago.
"This one my sister cross-
stiched," Kay said, pointing to
another elephant hanging on
the bedroom wall. "And this is
a picture an elephant named
Ruby made."
For Bob, who hides ele-
phant presents in the house
to give to his wife on birth-
days and holidays, the adven-
tureand fun of collecting is all
in the hunt for new elephants.
"It's just a matter of finding
the unusual," he said. "We
look for the unusual, that's the
whole point of it. And none of
this stuff costs very much.
You'd be surprised by the stuff
we haven't bought."
But long before the pachy-
derms started to pile up in the
Masons' house, the couple,
who have been married for 44
years, collected something
else --gold charms.
Bob gave Kay a gold charm
bracelet for Christmas when
they first got engaged, slip-
ping it into her stocking.
Holding the shiny bracelet
up to the light Kay pointed
out what every charm on it
meant. Charms mark every
highlight of their life from the
marriage certificate charm to
the microphone charm en-
graved with the letters WITZ,
the first radio station where
Bob worked. A gold boot
marks when their son was
born and a little TV camera
marked when Bob moved
into the TV industry.


Kay Mason displays a sample of her elephant collection, which
began in the 1970s with one figurine and has grown to more
than 1,600 elephant-related collectibles.


The last charm Bob bought
his wife was, appropriately, an
elephant.
"It tells our whole life
story," Bob said.
Bob even has his own col-
lection of 6,000 lapel pins,
most of which he got for free
from municipalities and com-
panies across the United
States. He even has a pin of
Vladimir Lenin that Radio
Moscow sent him before the
collapse of the Soviet Union.
The collecting bug has
even spread to the rest of the
family. Their daughter collects
Beanie Babies. Their son,
whom.Bob said is the family's
true collector, collects every-
thing from Nascar parapher-
nalia to wristwatches.

Bob jokes that he often tells
his grandson that the only
thing he should collect is
money.
"It's a fun thing and that's
the whole point of collecting,"
Bob said.
Kay smiled and added, "I
just like looking at the ele-
phants."

The Christian


defense of the unborn


REV. DWIGHT DOLBY
RELIGION COL L M NlST

January is the month when
many in the Christian church
observe Sanctity of Life Sun-
day, as it is the anniversary
month of the Roe v. Wade
decision of 1973. This column
provides a great opportunity
to speak calmly about this
matter from a biblical frame-
work. I invite those who dis-
agree with me in the under-
standing of scripture as it
addresses this subject to dia-
logue with me, as such a dia-
logue would be helpful to us
all.
The issue that concerns a
large section of the Christian
church is the moral question
attending abortion, "Is the
life of the unborn child in-
cluded in the biblical teach-
ing respecting the sanctity of
life?" This special protection
God gives to human life is
based on God creating man
in "His own image" (Genesis
1:26,27). We find additional
language safeguarding the
sanctity of human life in
Genesis 9:6, "Whoever sheds
man's blood, by man his
blood shall be shed, for in the
image of God He made man."
While other issues and
concerns touching on abor-


tion are numerous and sub-
stantive, the Bible provides a
basic foundation for regard-
ing all human life as sacred.
God doesn't speak of the
animal kingdom in the same
terms. Only mankind bears
the image of God and be-
cause of this, human life is to
be protected.
Though it may appear at
first glance to be an inconsis-
tency for Christians to defend
the lives of the unborn while
supporting the death penalty;
in actuality, each position is
rooted in God's special lan-
guage of protection regarding
human life.
For those of us submitting
to the word of God, we find
the language of the Bible
granting to the "product of
conception" human termi-
nology, thus answering the
above question regarding the
state of the unborn before
God in the affirmative. We
find such language in Job 3:3;
Psalm 139:13-16; Psalm 51:5;
Luke 1:24-56).
Obviously, this root con-
viction held by Christians
embracing the word of God
doesn't address the needs of
the woman who may find
herself in the position of hav-
ing an unplanned pregnancy
through whatever circum-
stances. The difficult issues
confronting a woman who
becomes pregnant at a time
of great inconvenience or
through rape or incest, or
other circumstances of grave
threat to her security and the
security of the child need to
be dealt with compassionate-
ly and wisely by a caring soci-

bands and wives and children
wearing masks to protect
against the threat of typhoid
and cholera looking for lost
loved ones. Pictures of the
missing posted on bulletin
boards outside makeshift
morgues. There were images
of hope, too. Images of moth-
ers reunited with their chil-
dren snatched from their
arms by the raging sea,
fathers journeying to those
lands to find their sons alive.
Worldwide, airplanes carry-
ing medical supplies, food
and water for those without
basic necessities take flight.
We were all brought closer
this night. Many images, but
perhaps no single one: no sol-
dier kissing a nurse, no child
saluting a flag draped coffin


to symbolize and hold the
grief.
We human beings need
these images, need them to
limit the scope of the tragedy
in our own minds, need them
to make the abstract real,
need them to bring us closer.
For the greatest fear for us is
despair, despair arising from
our own powerlessness and
lack of control of the forces of
nature.
Human beings seek to
blame the gods not because it
is the fault of the gods but
because the gods are believed
to have the potential to inter-
vene and restore hope. Hope-
lessness is not a place we can
comfortably live. And we are
all brought closer this night.
In this new year, bright


with promise, there are per-
haps both possibilities and
hope. The vast majority of
those affected in South and
Southeast Asia are Muslims.
Their grief and loss stands as
an invitation to see them as
simply human, not as defined
by a religious faith people in
this nation sometimes mis-
trust.
It is a chance for us to rec-
ognize that we are all irre-
trievably, intimately intercon-
nected in our habitation of
this small star.
It is a chance to bring us
closer, not for this night but
for all nights.
On this night, gods unite as
one bringing the comfort of
the spirit to the one human
family. On this night, crea-


tures of the sea and the air
and the land unite as one
grateful in their own way for
the continuation of this life.
On this night, we unite as one
bringing to the human enter-
prise on this unlikely star the
brother and sisterhood so
long awaited and so often
foretold. We are all brought
closer together this night. Let
us remember in the between
times the pain and the gifts of
this one night.
Rev. Susanne Nazian is
minister of the Unitarian
Universalist Congregation of
Venice. The Congregation's

mail is uucov@aol.com. Rev.

ety, beginning with those
closest to her.
Christians opposed to
abortion are not insensitive
to the great burdens accom-
panying unplanned preg-
nancies. We all experience
challenges in'our lives and
realize there are many
aspects of the human expe-
rience that are very heavy to
bear.
We simply would rather be
seeking to address these bur-
dens than to bear-up under
the great sorrow and guilt of
our nation permitting the
death of millions of unborn
children. Cannot we all agree
that life is precious, and can't
the conversation move for-
ward from there? I for one am
willing to consider whatever
needs the mother faces as we
seek to close the door on
legalized abortion. We can't
help what we choose to
destroy. May God be merciful
and unite us as a nation on
the foundation of the sanctity
of human life..
This is where "loving our
neighbor" begins.

Santa Claus is a Finn


Part II appeared in the
Venice Gondolier Sun travel
pages onJan. 1.

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

It had taken just a day to
adjust to Helsinki luxury and
after breakfast on day two in
the capital city, I would be first
in line to see "the duck."
Snuggling into my comfy
bed with those wonderful pil-
lows I fell asleep in a second
that first night at the five star
Hotel Kamp. When the wake-
up call rang at 8 a.m. and it
was still dark, I wanted to bur-
row in for more more zzzzs,
but only until I was awake
enough to remember Donald.
I met one of the other writers
for breakfast downstairs in
the hotel and by 9:30 a.m. I
was on my way to the muse-


um, which I thought would
open by 10 a.m. I was wrong.
It was raining and cold and I
had an hour to wait. To fill the
time, I shopped, walking into
tiny little bookstores and a
charming little flower shop.
Finally the 60 minutes had
passed. I could enter the
museum, where I took at least
30 photos (without a flash)
before heading back to the
hotel for lunch. A small
Caesar salad was perfect and
also satisfied my need for
greens, which do not seem to
be big on Finnish menus.
While savoring the excel-
lent salad and more fresh
Finnish bread, I began to have
second thoughts on how I
would spend my free day in
Finland. There were many
more museums to see and a
trolley ride might have been
fun but a better idea was


forming.
Having been thoroughly
soaked in the rain, I decided
that what I wanted most of all
after lunch was a nice hot
bath with that other duck (the
big red duck not Donald)
and a nap on those soft pil-
lows two hours of pure
heaven.
Later that afternoon we
writers had a tour of the hotel
with its marketing manager,
learning still more of the
building's history and its
importance to the city. Part of
the presidential suite had
been rented but we were able
to see half of it, as well as sev-
eral meeting rooms, its
gourmet restaurant and the
bar off the original lobby. The
rooms were larger and even
more opulent than our deluxe
rooms but the red ducks were
identical.


Dinner that night was at
G.W. Sundmans, a Michelin
star restaurant overlooking
Helsinki's South Harbor. It is
one of three restaurants locat-
ed in the estate-like home of a
former sea captain.
The ornate plaster work in
the carefully restored rooms
reminded me of hand-
embroidered lace. I tried to
photograph the ceilings but
could not do justice to the
ornate details, even with my
camera's telephoto lens.
Our glasses were kept filled
with sparkling water and/or
wine and fresh rolls were
brought as fast as we con-
sumed them. Finnish bread is
absolutely the best. Even the
most ardent Atkins dieter
cannot ignore the bread in

Oceanfront celebrates reopening with completion of $8-million renovation


STAFF REPORT

NewYear's Day 2005 mark-
ed the restoration of fine hos-
pitality to one Central Florida
community, after the devasta-
tion of Hurricanes Frances
and Jeanne this fall. The
Doubletree Hotel Cocoa
Beach Oceanfront proudly
announced completion of an
$8 million hotelwide im-
provement project, and cele-
brated by welcoming the first
guest of the newly remodeled
hotel through its doors with
special gifts along with
those legendary, fresh baked
Doubletree chocolate chip
cookies.
The Doubletree has been
closed to guests since Sep. 5,
and the extensive renovation
of the six-floor, 148-room,
full-service hotel has been
completed on-time and on-
target, as Cocoa Beach gears
up to welcome visitors during
the very busy winter tourist
season. Just as important,
owners of the Doubletree
Hotel Cocoa Beach Ocean-
front, Oklahoma City-based
Southern Hospitality, made a
financial commitment to
supplement unemployment


benefits received by all em-
ployees during the hotel's clo-
sure. Southern developed a
program that ensured each
Doubletree employee receiv-
ed their full regular wages
while the renovation project
was under way. As a result, the
hotel retained 100 percent of
the hotel team to re-open the
Doubletree Hotel Cocoa
Beach Oceanfront on Jan. 1.
The Doubletree Hotel Co-
coa Beach Oceanfront is
proud to be one of the first
hotels in Central Florida to
welcome guests with the
brand's new sleep standard,

Even the rich and famous appreciate a rubber ducky in their
bath tub. That is why every room and suite at the Hotel Kamp
in Helsinki includes a rubber ducky in the bathtub. During the
year, the ducks are green. As the winter holidays begin the
green ducks are replaced with red ducks.

Tune in to circus history this afternoon with 'Vee on Venice'


KIM COOL
R_: f 1 EDITOR


Don't miss "Vee onVenice"
at 5:30 p.m. today, Saturday,
Jan. 8, on BLAB-TV cable
channel 21. It's about the cir-
cus days in Venice and fea-
tures former Ringling Bros.
and Barnum & Bailey Circus
stars Sigrid Gebel, Tito Gaona
and Chuck Sidlow, a Clown
College graduate, teacher and
performer who is now an
important part of Circus
Sarasota. I am on the show for
a few minutes at the begin-
ning. I am the one with my
hair blowing across my face,
which is what it has done all
two times I have been on her
show.
The historic old circus
arena is in the background.


That is the place where the
Ringling show held its world
premier every year from
1960-1992, the years when
The Greatest Show on Earth
wintered in Venice. Of all the
things that occurred in Venice
since the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers pur-
chased the John Nolen plan
from Dr. Fred Albee back in
the 1920s, there was probably
nothing that had a greater
impact than the circus. When
the name Venice was painted
on the Ringling Circus train
cars that first year, the little
beach town instantly became
a household word across the
country.
Not only did circus per-
formers settle in the area, so
did circus fans and others
with an affinity for the arts.
Now run out and hug a clown.

Or, better yet, run out and
buy tickets for "Live a
Dream," the 2005 production
of Circus Sarasota, the non-
profit organization that is
keeping the circus legacy
alive in this area. Circus
Sarasota will perform under
the big top on Tuttle Avenue,
south of Fruitville Road in

CHORUS from page 1B


The most popular items
with shoppers were Faberge
eggs (the small ones encrust-
ed with diamonds), stacking
dolls, Russian chocolate and
jewelry.
Our fifth and final concert


was in the Church of Saints
Peter and Paul in St. Peters-
burg. During the post-revolu-
tion years, the church was
gutted and made into an
Olympic-sized swimming
pool. Now, once again, it is a
church. The main floor has
been restored to a simple but
attractive area. The balcony is
still made up of bleachers
from the pool era. The room
was wonderful to sing in, the
best of all five venues, we
think. We sang a bit slower


than usual to allow the sound
to float out into the room. The
choir sang two Russian an-
thems: Ivanov's "Praise Ye
Lord" and "My Song Will Ever
Record," the latter by Dimitri
Bortniansky.
Mel Richards, our choir's
bass soloist, sang a moving
interpretation of "Lord God of
Abraham" by Mendelssohn.
In fact, everything we sang
sounded grand and the audi-
ence was most enthusiastic.
We had been given 45 min-


utes, but they wanted more.
Afterward, many people
came up to us and thanked us
for coming to their church to
sing. Even though we didn't
speak Russian and they didn't
speak English, we could com-
municate, thanking each
other for our gift of music and
their gift of appreciation.
Copenhagen, Oslo, Stock-
holm, Helsinki and St. Peters-
burg what a tour. What an
experience. We are ready to
go again. Our tour company,


EF Tours, unfortunately, has
decided to concentrate on
educational tours. Ours was
the company's last concert
tour. Apple is researching
tours and tour companies in
England for our next musical
adventure, which will occur
in 2006.
The participants on the
trip in addition to Apple,
Richards and Arnold were

that country. From the tiny
demitasse of artichoke soup
to the creme brulee, this was
another fine dinner, one we
savored slowly, remaining at
the restaurant until nearly 10
p.m., before walking slowly
back to the Kamp.
The next day we would
visit Porvoo, Finland's second
oldest city, tour the home of
National Poet Johan Ludvig
Runeberg, have lunch at
Wanha Laamanni, dating
from the 18th century and
then return to Helsinki and its
St. Thomas Christmas Market
at the Esplanade.
The giant park was filled
with matching orange tents,
housing the vendors. When
not filled with special events
like the Christmas Market, the
Esplanade serves as a giant
promenade for residents and
visitors. During the summer
months, concerts are held at
the harbor end of the Es-
planade. We managed to walk
through the market several
times during our stay, check-
ing out the handicrafts and
smelling the delicious aromas
wafting from booths where
one could buy fresh grilled
makkara (Finnish sausage),

fresh baked goods, a variety of
dried fruits and berries and
other foods. The market was
open every day, 11 a.m.-6
p.m. while we were there. One
day, I even saw Santa there,
checking his list, confirming
once again that his elves don't
necessarily make everything
he delivers on Christmas Eve.
Too soon we realized it was
our last night in Helsinki, but
what a night it was. We
attended a performance of
"Der Rosenkavalier" at the
Opera House. And then, after
one more night of snuggling
into those wonderful Kamp
pillows, we would meet the
winner of the Kaz Frank
Award, the premier fashion
designer of Finland for 2004,
and also talk to a young de-
signer who works at Mari-
mekko.
Fortified with fancy cake-
like snacks at the design cen-
ter we headed back to the air-
port and our flight to New
York.

coming in for a landing at
movie theaters.
And like its predecessors
in a year overrun by resur-
rected stories, the plane-
crash tale "Flight of the
Phoenix" just can't straighten
up and fly right.
Starring Dennis Quaid in
the role originated by James
Stewart, the movie is 2004's
most literal update of an old
flick, down to a handful of
dialogue exchanges lifted
from its 1965 forerunner and
a boxcar-like cargo plane
similar to the one in the orig-
inal.
Yet characters and rela-
tionships are dumbed down,
to fit today's standards of
superficiality in adventure
films, blunting the tension of
the original and leaving little
of its nuance. The remake

Focusing on his early years this
is the story of how young Howard
Hughes transformed a small fortune
into a massive one. Howard
Hughes (DiCaprio) moved to Los
Angeles. to become a Hollywood
film producer, where he helped
launch the career of Jean Harlow
and other starlets, and producing
such classics as Hell's Angels, The
Front Page, Flying Leathernecks,
and Scarface (the 1932 original),
eventually owning RKO Pictures.

of the story, which will pro-
vide a satisfying little jolt for
anyone who has not seen the
original.
Producer William Aldrich
- whose father, Robert,
directed the 1965 version -
hatched the idea of redoing
the movie, and a quality tan-
dem of Scott Frank and
actor-filmmaker Edward
Burns share screenwriting
credit.
But this version suffers
from ham-fisted direction by
John Moore, who did com-
mercials for Adidas, SEGA
and others before making
his movie debut on 2001's
frenetic action tale "Behind
Enemy Lines."
Quaid plays Frank Towns,
a jaded pilot ferrying oil
workers in his ratty caigo


carnated Though his story is both:
unseniing and absurd. Anna can't.
get the boy out of her mind. And
much to the concern of ner fiancee,
her increased contact with him
leads her to question the choices
she has made in her life.

Entertain easily in this Boca Royale home


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


With three bedrooms and
four full bathrooms, enter-
taining guests for cocktails, a
meal or overnight is a breeze.
Located in Boca Royale
and recently listed for sale
with Brad Tritschler of Exit
Gulf Coast Realty, this split-


plan home has three bed-
room suites and a fourth extra
room that is ideal as an office
or den.
The master bedroom is a
generous 17.5 by 20.5 feet.
The master bath contains a
jetted tub, separate shower
and bidet.
Built in-1995, the 3,037-
square-foot home has a large


eat-in kitchen with an island,
solid-surface counters, dou-
ble ovens and a separate
pantry. The adjacent lanai has
an outdoor grilling area with a
sink, adding to the entertain-
ing possibilities of the house,
which includes a 13-foot by
14-foot dining room and 15-
foot by 16-foot family room in
addition to 15-foot by 20-foot


living room.
Volume ceilings add to the
spacious feel of the house.
Crown moldings and chande-
liers add to the formal feel.
The home has a built-in
security system as well as a
built-in vacuum system.
There also is zoned air condi-
tioning.
The side-facing garage is
21 feet by 21 feet and there is
additional parking for a golf
cart.


is a spectacular view of the
golf course, one of two in the
community.
Boca Royale is one of the
most carefully planned com-
munities in the area. It is deed
restricted. Early homes in the
community had a strong
Norman influence in their
design. Nearly all have tall
windows and shutter trim
plus steep roofs. New homes
such as this one on Saint
Martin Circle are predomi-
nantly the Florida style with
imposing entries and tile


roofs.
Listed for $599,900, the
house can be seen by ap-
pointment. Call Tritschler at
(941) 716-1042, 485-5454 or
485-2255 or send e-mail to
bradtritschler@verizon.net.
The house is at 2 St. Martin
Circle. Take State Road 776
past Englewood Isles into
Boca Royale, which is a gated
community. Turn left on Golf
View and then left again on
Cayman Isles Boulevard, and
left again on Saint Martin
Circle.


Lush trees surround this Boca Royale home recently offered for sale.


The pool and spa area face one of the two golf courses at Boca Royale.
