FEMA park hasn't asked for extension


Fire protection and living conditions are the chief
concerns for the city as a Jan. 30 deadline
approaches.

Nearly five months ago, city
officials told the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency and owners of the for-
mer Stay-N-Play R\ Park that
improved fire protection was
needed for homeless hurri-
cane \ictms Living in tailers
there.
No new fire hydrants have
been added, which could
mean the city will deny any
extension of permits that
allow the park to exist.
Not that any of that mat-


ters. Neither die park owners
nor FEMA has even applied
for permits to stay beyond lan.

according to City Manager
Narrty Black.
"No one has even talked to
us yet," Black said Tuesday.
"You figure with almost six

Angela Welch has work-
ed at Sharky's On The Pier


on Christmas Eve for as
long as she has worked
there. Each year Sharky's
holds a dinner for elders
who have no family in the
area. Seventy people show-
ed up this year.
Various volunteer groups
offered to pick up and
return attendees after the
dinner. All had rides home
except for one person -
Barbara Cheney. Welch
agreed to give Cheney a
ride home that evening.
She isn't sure why, but
she invited Cheney home


for dinner the next day too.
"I just didn't feel good
about leaving without in-
viting her to my house on
Cluistmas Day." Welch said.
Cheney thought the
offer was nice, and agreed
to come.
When Welch's mother,
Olga Berberovich, sister,
Joan Colon, and some
friends sat down for Christ-
mas Day dinner, her moth-
er sat next to their special
guest, Barbara. They began

Public comments were
harsh last summer when
Mike and Addy Griffith want-
ed to build a four-story build-
ing downtown.
So they waited a while after
gaining approval by Archit-
ectural Review Board mem-
bers for meeting design and
appearance standards.
Six months later the Venice
Planning Commission unani-
mously approved their 44-
foot building that will replace


215-217 W. Venice Ave., which
is now home to Avenue Trad-
ing Co. and an empty store
front.
Council member Rick Tacy,
the ex officio member of the

in the 7-0 vote, but told com-

This edition marks the
I enice Gondolier Sun's return
to publishing three days a
week. Subscribers received
their Wednesday paper as
usual today, and will get an-
other on Friday instead of
Saturday, and the third paper
on Sunday.
Although there was no
change in the delivery day for
today's paper, you will notice
some changes in the way the
paper looks.
For starters, the A-section
will now come in two parts,
with the front section devoted
to news stories and the sec-
ond containing the opinion
pages, obituaries, Police Beat


and a few other items.
The opinion pages have
been redesigned a little, to
give us more space to print
your letters to the editor.
We've moved Business
Matters, with our popular
Businews column, back into
the front section. It's on
Page 15A in this edition; it
will be in Friday editions
after this.
The Our Town section
should look pretty familiar.
While we plan some changes
there, too, none of your fav-
orite features will be going
anywhere unless it's to a bet-
ter location. And we'll be
adding several new ones,

Croquet, anyone? Book a court appearance


Wellfield Park is home to a new croquet-only
facility the largest public course in the country.

I L LI.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County Croquet
Club Inc. has a new home at
Wellfield Park.
A chilly Tuesday morning
ribbon-cutting ceremony did
not discourage more than 100
aficionados from attending.
No. 1 nationally ranked Jackie
Jones, the president of SCCC,
and other dignitaries, includ-
iig United States Croquet
Association president Dick
Brackett, were in attendance.
"We're very excited," said
Jones. "This is a wonderful
thing to have a new facility
with three lawns."
Jones presented Jack Colli-


gan, manager of Sarasota
County Parks and Recreation,
a plaque showing the SCCC's
appreciation for his part in
finding the group a new home.
"It was through his efforts
and'insight all of this hap-
pened. We are all very grateful
to him," said Jones.
County commissioners in
attendance were chair Paul
Mercier, Nora Patterson and
Shannon Staub. Council
member Rick Tacy represent-
ed the city of Venice.
"The number of people
who want to play croquet
seems to be expanding all the
time. We hope this brings
some economic advantage to
the area," said Colligan. "It's

croquet course. The course is located at Wellfield Park in Venice. With Jones is Jack Colligan, manager of Sarasota County Parks

good for everyone."
The big time
The facility has the distinc-
tion of being the largest
municipal croquet course in
the country, with three con-
tiguous lawns, said Colligan.
Private clubs can have many
more, he said, but most pub-
lic courses have only two
lawns.
"We're working on a hand-
icap 'ramp, and will bring
electricity to the shed. Per-
haps we can bring bathroom


facilities closer to the lawns in
the future," added Colligan.
"This is a great improve-
ment over anything we've had
before," said John Howland,
SCCC member. The SCCC,
formed in 2000, played in
Sarasota at the lawn bowling
facility.
"It is encouraging to see
this development," said
Brackett. "We have 220 clubs
around the country. I hope
you will take the time to visit:
some of them, as members
from other clubs will visit


your new facility. It's a great
opportunity to make new
friends. And it's a lot of fun.
The-rewards are significant
both personally and profes-
sionally."
An invitational tourna-
ment is scheduled at the
Sarasota County Croquet
Club, Wellfield Complex, 1300
Ridgewood Avenue, Venice,
Feb. 4-6. The tournament is
sanctioned by the USCA.
A schedule for sharing the
public course with SCCC
club activities is still being


developed. Bring your own
equipment and wickets un-
less you become a member of
SCCC. Free clinics will be held
for beginners every Tuesday
at 10 a.m. Call SCCC (941)
484-3206 for more informa-
tion.
Wellfield park is operated
by the county parks depart-
ment but is owned by the
city ofVenice.

Park names leave advisory board frustrated


Park names leave advisory board frustrated


One name passes while another fails.
Venice City Council will have the final say.


BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


Relief has finally come for
all those parking needs at
Venice Beach.
Finding out what to name
the acre-size lot may prove


more difficult.
Venice Parks and Recrea-
tion Advisory Board members
voted 5-1 against approving
the name recommended by
City Manager Marty Black and.
city council nearly three
months ago. Two other pro-


posed park names also lack-
ed unanimous support by
members.
City council has the final
say, but the park board is
required to issue a recom-
mendation on the name.
Seems as if members are
questioning whether the
$20,000 donated toward the
park's construction by Shaun
Graser played a role. Graser is


SUN PHOTO BY JJ. ANDREWS
This view from the eastern edge of Venice Beach parking lot shows where additional parking
will soon be across the street. Venice Parks and Recreation Advisory Board members approved
site plans but not the name Graser Square.

the son of former Venice
mayor Merle Graser, whom
the park would be named
after.
"I never liked it when
someone asks for some-
thing," parks board member,
Al Feinsod Jr; said. "If the
residents think that, it's fine.
But' if the -(Graser) family
asked, I can't vote for it."
Vice Chair Monty Andrews
was the only person to vote,
in favor of the name. Chair
'Walt Jennings did not vote
citing a conflict of interest,
though he did not elaborate.
Questionable names
Members attempted to
compromise by suggesting
the name Graser Gulf View
Park. The vote tied at 3-3.
Aside from naming the park
after someone who, is still
alive, member John Osborne
pointed out how the lot
"isn't even a square."
A new park planned next
to Venice Little Theatre barely
had its name, Foundation
Park, approved, by a 4-3 vote.
Criticism here was about its.
blandness. .
And they rejected a third
name Tramanto Vista Park
without a formal submis-
Ssion. This is the suggested
name by the city manager for


the island water treatment
plant that will be converted
into a park. *
Venice will not own Foun-
dation Park, but will simply
handle maintenance and
planning of it. Sarasota Con-
servation Foundation bought
the parcel, 100 Tampa Ave.,
with a grant from Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice.
Dawn Stoddart brought up
the suggestion of naming
Foundation Park after the
Robert Lee Clark family -
which she is related to for
their contribution to the city.
'"Foundation Park, to me,
doesn't mean a lot," Stoddart
said. "I'd rather see it named
for a family rather than
something that sounds so
corporate."
Planned park
The site plans for Graser
Square, which were approv-
ed, also were questioned.
Members did not like. the
planned fountain next to
Venice Beach and thought it
would be better to create
more shade or sitting areas,
instead.
Shaun Graser's $20,000 do-
nation, however, is for the
fountain as a tribute to his
father. As mayor, Merle Gras-


er donated the fountain at
Fountain Park and helped
bring Manatee Community
College, Senior Friendship
Center and Hospice of Ven-
ice to the city, according to
Public Information Officer
Pam Johnson.
In the motion to approve
the site plan, members stipu-
lated the money must be
received or else the fountain
would be cut out.
"The fountain bothers me
because of the money. We've
gotten burned once already,"
said Mike Gelormino, refer-
ring to the interactive chil-
dren's fountain downtown.'
The city is spending an addi-
tional $77,000 to make up for
Venice MainStreet's promised
donation that fell through.
Total cost to build 57 regu-
lar parking spots and four
handicapped next to Venice
Beach is at $208,000. The lot
would be asphalt and have
no lighting, restroom or wa-
ter services.
Venice paid $900,000 to
purchase the 0.9 acres, and a
state grant of $300,000 is
helping pay for the project,
Public Works Director Larry-
Heath said.

HOW SEALANTS ARE APPLIED
Sealants protect tooth surfaces from decay, especially with children.
The procedures used in applying sealants are simple, safe, and
completely painless. No local anesthesia is required. A liquid or gel is
applied to the enamel for 60 seconds, etching it to a depth of a few
microns. (A micron is a thousandth of a millimeter) A liquid plastic Is
placed over the etched surface. It seeps into all the jagged peaks and
valleys created by the etching.
Some sealants harden by themselves. Others are hardened by a high-
intensity fiber-optic ultraviolet light which is shined on the teeth like a
flashlight. If the groove is over filled, normal chewing and biting wears
off the excess material quickly.The material that had filled the depth of
the pits and fissures is very strong and resistant to wear. Even when
the sealant has worn away it will remain deep in the crevices, sealing
and protecting the tooth from decay. Sealants are one reason why
children have fewer cavities today.

Residents reveal little about scrub jays at shopping center site


The planning commission recommends rezoning
that would allow a Laurel Road shopping center
next to Interstate 75.


BY.J ANDREIJS
NEWS EDITOR

Building a 400,000-square-
foot -l i.]iI',; center is a
great idea, according to
neighboring property own-
ers.
Now listen for 90 minutes
about what makes it such a
bad idea --- from some of the
same people.
*That was what Venice
Planning Commission waded
through for nearly two hours
Tuesday as members consid-
ered a rezoning petition on 65
acres at Laurel and Pinebrook
roads that would allow a retail
shopping center to be built by


North American Properties.
Rezoning was recom-
mended 7-0 by commission-
ers after many of them ap-
peared visibly upset and frus-
trated with Sorrento Ranches
resident Robert Burrus. The
homeowner spoke for nearly
an hour, and members were
unhappy most of his testimo-
ny had to do with another
proposed development -
Villa Lago not the shop-
ping center.
Attorney Jeff Boone, who
happens to represent both
North American Properties
and Villa Lago, objected more
than a half dozen times to
Burrus and mirrored the


commission's opinion. The
proposed Villa Lago develop-
ment neighbors Sorrento
Ranches to the west and the
shopping center to the east,
and the 151-unit complex is
opposed by Burrus and other
Sorrento Ranches residents.
"This has nothing at all to
do with this project," Boone
said during one of his objec-
tions. "This clearly has to do
with Villa Lago. He's taking a
free shot here."
Hold your tongue
Burrus, the president of
Sorrento Ranches Homeown-
ers Association, and Robert
Graf, the vice president, both
were told to halt references to
Villa Lago. In Graf's prepared
remarks, he mentioned Villa
Lago by name six times. He
stopped doing so after his
third warning, calling it


"another development" the
next three times.
Graf did speak of concerns
about increased traffic and
stormwater drainage. Both
Boone and city staff said
those issues would be ad-
dressed when site plans are
applied for.
It was Burrus,who focused
on Florida scrub jays. His
principal claim that .the
endangered bird lives on the
property was proven by a
photo and then his saying it
flew onto the property.
This led to Burrus saying
every property within a half
mile of Sorrento Ranches
needs a scrub jay survey done
by the federal government in
order to determine if devel-
opment should be stopped or
altered.
Boone answered by saying
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service


regulations must be followed,
and all these issues would be
answered when site plans
were drawn up and applied
for.
However, seeing a bird fly
and land on a tree doesn't
prevent development, he
said.
"The mere fact that an ani-
mal flies across and lands on
a piece of property does not
make it undevelopable,"
Boone said. "How goofy
would that be?"
From here
City council now will con-
sider the rezoning petition
and have final approval. The
shopping center must go
through several site plan
approvals before any dirt
would move.
As for the Villa Lago devel-
opment, ithas been sentback


to planning staff for review
before reappearing before:
planning commission.
A concept plan was filed in
accordance with the rezon-;
ing.
The shopping center at'
Laurel and Pinebrook roads
would have three entrances,::
one entrance with a stoplight,
three major retail areas with a
parking lot in the middle and
canopy trees lining the mall's
perimeter. Specific site plans
still must be submitted if the:
zoning is approved by city,
council.

cepted VGD standards volun-
tarily in an effort to make the

Planning Commission to consider Osprey 2050-style village


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

Along with a new Wal-
Mart, residents of Osprey in
central Sarasota County may
be the first in the county to
see the application of new
smart growth principles.
Thursday night, the Sara-
sota County Planning Com-
mission will consider a pro-
posal from developer Henry
Rodriquez to amend the Os-
prey Revitalization Plan to
include a proposed village.
Rodriquez' proposal con-
cerns aboit 40 acres along
U.S. 41 at the intersection
with Bay Street behind the
currently vacant parcel where
Wal--Mart will go. Rodriquez
owns the property along with
Sarasota Development Corp.,
TI G! ,iand f-I.1 Village II, Kitty
L..Welb-Iter ..n! LibbyW. Kline.
Rodriquez is proposing a


village-type scheme for the
property that would follow
the compact, New Urbanist
style of development envi-
sioned by the county's 2050
plan, although it is not part of
that plan. That type of devel-
opment form calls for non-
gated, walkable communities
with an interconnected street
network and a variety of
housing types.
The property currently
contains a mobile home park
and some single-family
homes on private lots. Ac-
cording to documents filed
with the county, Rodriquez
wants to redevelop the prop-
erty with a mix of multi-fami-
ly residential units and com-
mercial buildings. Specifical-
ly, the development would
consist of 532 multi-family
dwelling units; 64,000 square
feet of retail; office and com-
mercial space; and 25,000


square feet for either civic,
commercial or residential
purposes.
Rodriquez hopes to use the
latter space for the construc-
tion of a Central County li-
brary that would serve Os-
prey. He has been in discus-
sions with county staff about
that possibility.
Reaction: 4-0 in favor
To handle expected traffic


in the development, county
staff is requiring Rodriquez to
construct turn lanes at the
Bay Street and Patterson Ave-
nue intersection and the Old
Venice Road and Bay Acres
Avenue. If needed, Rodriquez
must also supply a traffic sig-.
nal at the latter intersection at
no cost to the county.
According to county staff,
four letters in support of the
proposal have been received,

District wrestles with Pine View crowding


BY ANGELINE TAYLOR
STAFF WRITER


Florida's only public, gifted
school may be one step closer
to, being cured of overcrowd-
ing ills due to Tuesday's school
board vote.
Pine View School in Osprey
received board approval for a
$25,000 facilities assessment
study, conducted by Seibert
Architects, PA., out of Sara-
sota. It will evaluate long-
range facilities plans for Pine
View, a school that is already
bursting at the seams.
"It is really a study to find
out what we need to do to
house 2,500 students," said
Chuck Collins, schools direc-
tor of construction services.
The school was projected
to serve 1,865 students in the
2004-05 school year. The 10-
day count, however, showed
otherwise. More than 1,960
students flocked to the school


by September 2004.
In October, planners
began to analyze the school's
popularity and growth. Al-
ready, every inch of facility
space was being used to ac-
commodate extra classroom
space.
"The analysis we've con-
ducted is unprecedented,"
said Ken Marsh, schools plan-
ner, in the October school
workshop. "(We) looked at
why Pine View is growing in
the way it has."
In 10 years Sarasota Coun-
ty's schools' census could soar
to 60,036 students. Ten per-
cent of those students would
be deemed "full-time gifted"
students. As a result, more

than 6,000 would be eligible
to attend Pine View.
Gifted vs. full-time gifted
Students that test positive
for gifted classes do not neces-
sarily qualify for Pine View. A.

...- -- -


challenging entrance policy
at Pine View has been modi-
fied to include an IQ test and
other state requirements.
"It's the most rigorous of
full-time programs," said
Steve Largo, Pine View School
principal in the October
workshop.
Harsh entrance exams have
not scared away newly dis-
tricted students or their par-
ents. According to a school
district survey, more than
300 new students enrolled for
Pine View in three years.
Of the 39 surveys returned,
30 families said they moved to
the school district without
looking at their districted
school. Eighteen said they.
moved here to go to Pine
View.
Also at the
school board meeting:
The school board unani-
mously voted to approve the


school calendars for 2005-06
and 2006-07 school years.
Scott Lempe, executive direc-
tor of human resources/labor
relations, chaired the calendar
committee. He said the main
focus for the committee was
to determine how the calen-
dar affects instruction in the
classroom.
"Why design into your cal-
endar when you know kids
aren't going to be there?"
Lempe asked at Tuesday's
board meeting.
Seventeen Sarasota
County teachers were recog-
nized for receiving National
Board Certification. The
process to become nationally
certified can take anywhere
from 10 months to three
years. Tuesday's numbers
increases the total of national-
ly certified educators in the
county to 95 leading in the
state and the second highest
district in the country.

large tanker trucks to fight a
fire there.
Exception
Venice city code doesn't
allow RV parks, but the city
made an exception following
Hurricane Charley for those
left homeless. Until late last
week, Black and other city
officials were under the im-
pression the park would close
by the end of the month.
But there are still at least
150 families living there, even
though the city's original
Agreement with FEMA and
owners J&J Homes stated that
all 362 structures must be
, removed from the site within
Stwo weeks of its expiration.
A lack of communication
between FEMA, the property
owner and city staff has con-
Stributed to the problem,
Black said. He and FEMA offi-
cials in Orlando spoke by
phone last week, and FEMA
was unaware of the situation
or living conditions that
S"don't even meet basic neces-
sities," Black said.
Representatives of J&J
Homes could not be reached
for comment. Attorney Jeff
Boone, who represents the
owners, was in meetings.
Potential fines
Venice never thought the
SRV park would become semi-
permanent housing. Black
Points to modular homes be-
ing stored by FEMA near
Jacaranda Boulevard that re-
main empty and waiting for
installation in Charlotte
County.

Black said. "Why? Why are

T &J Homes needs to apply
Sfor an extension before the
' city can identify what needs
to be fixed and if the request


will be granted. City council
could be asked to decide,
Black said.
The owners, not FEMA,
would be the ones fined up to
$500 a day if trailers remain
beyond Jan. 30, Black said.

ATA GLANCE
Caribbean Bay Club is 407
acres between Knights Trail
Road and Venetian Golf &
River Club. The site was
annexed into city limits May
27, 2003, and has remained
vacant as owners work to

Hurricane Charley struck
Aug. 13, 2004, and FEMA con-
tracted with Caribbean Bay
Club to provide temporary
shelter for victims who had
lost their homes. FEMA and
J&J Homes asked for 362
camping trailers to be allowed
until Dec. 31, and Venice
granted an extension until
Jan. 30.
There has been no formal
request to extend permits
beyond Jan. 30, according to
City Manager Marty Black. At
least 150 families continue to
live there, even though the
agreement with Venice states
all trailers would be removed
by Jan. 16.


Another hurricane season
isjust a few months away, and
city code enforcement offi-
cers are questioning the
structural integrity of the
trailers, Black said.
The city manager is con-
sidering a joint inspection of
those structures with FEMA
officials and city code offi-
cers.
Black believes this would
open FEMA's eyes to what
conditions hurricane victims
are being forced to live under.
"They're living there with-
out any hope they'll find a
better place to live," Black
said.

goods and blessings to Vic-
tory Base in Baghdad. Each
month, Loveland residents
and clients send the 16th Mil-
itary Police Unit baked goods,
letters of support and pic-
tures in their own adopt-a-
soldier effort.
"It has really helped stu-
dents understand what is go-
ing on in Iraq," said Maryann
Terry, director of donor ser-
vices.
Senior care, child care
Loveland specializes in
supported living, helping
develop home skills like
banking, selecting and pur-
chasing groceries for those
who need.a hand.
Loveland workshops allow
clients to earn a living by
working right on the premis-
es. They complete mass mail-
ings and assist other commu-
nity businesses on a regular
basis.
The 35-member staff also
helps with open learning
skills like cooking and clean-
ing, including three Sarasota
Technical Institute staff on
loan to help with self-esteem
building activities.
Loveland Center's Phase II
is a special program for
seniors. Its mission is to pro-
vide a caring environment for
the 14 elderly adults with
developmental disabilities,
helping them age with digni-
ty.
Because of physical needs
(incontinence, for example)
or the onset of dementia,
some older students require
nursing care and others need
more intensive staff supervi-
sion.
Currently, there is one full-
time staff person and at least
one volunteer on site every
day.
When building its new
facility at 157 South Havana
Road, Loveland included a


state-of-the-art classroom
with a beautiful playground
to serve 18 Head Start stu-
dents. Loveland Center and
Children First have worked
together to develop a child-
care training program that
teaches Loveland students
the skills they need to
become child-care workers in
the community.
Community service
Established in 1962 by par-
ents of children with disabili-
ties, the center provides ser-
vices for 104 adultswvith de-
velopmental disabilities who
reside in Sarasota and Char-
lotte counties. It was formerly
Southwest Florida Center for
the Handicapped.
Nine adults live in the co-
ed residential center. Another
13 clients share apartments
with two or three roommates.
The rest live with parents or
on their own.
Every day more than 50
percent of the student popu-
lation spends time in the
community at various loca-
tions. All services focus on
community involvement for
the students.
"We have 50 students who
volunteer in the community
- in senior centers, hospi-
tals," said Terry. "They work
hard at projects like the
Venice Little Theatre Follies.
Students put in a great
amount of work all through
the year for that two-to-three
day show. It's always well
received."
"We live our mission here
at Loveland Center," Terry
said. "We believe that all peo-
ple, regardless of disability,
will attain whatever goals
they pursue when given the
opportunity for self-expres-
sion.
"Loveland recognizes that
each individual as an adult
legal citizen, regardless of dis-
ability, has the inherent right
to experience on a daily basis


being a part of community
life, having friendships and
relationships with those of
their own choosing, having
valued roles in the communi-
ty, having opportunities to
make contributions to the
community at large, and hav-
ing a choice of lifestyle."
A love story
Danielle and Tom Ouel-
lette are mentally challenged
adults who have blossomed
in ways that are unimagin-
able to most people, said
Danielle's mother, Barbara
LaFond, who posted their
story on her Web site.
"They met in Florida at the
Loveland Center in Venice.
From the very beginning they
worked together on a variety
of different projects that
would assist them in inde-
pendent living skills," said
LaFond.
"Both of them are very
active in the center and will
continue to be active role
models for those who pres-
ently are part of Loveland and
for those who are to come,"
she said.
"A romance grew between
them and over a period of two
years their love of each other
grew and grew. With the help
and support of many people
their dreams of a life together
has become a reality.
"It was evident from the
very beginning they were a
perfect match."
Today, Tom works part-
time at the center as a"main-
tenance person, while
Danielle works at Beall's. The
energetic couple were voted
Special Olympics athletes of
the year in Florida.
"We've seen a lot of boy-
friends and girlfriends" but
not a lot of marriages, said
Terry. "They're the first."

DINNERfrompage6A
Christmas present
And thus, two neighbors
from long ago were brought
together for what turned out
to be an extra special occa-
sion on an already special
evening.
"It was a magical moment
meant to happen," said
Welch. "What are the odds of
that happening? For it to be
Barbara. For me to give her a
ride home on Christmas Eve.
For her to be our neighbor
years ago. It blew all our
minds."
That evening the old
neighbors reminisced about
the friends they knew, the
parades, antique cars and
the roaches.
"Small town stuff," said
Welch. "Once she said that, it
was like, Oh my God, I used to


walk by her house every day
from school. I never really
knew her."
"I remember Mrs. Cheney
was a nurse and used to take
care of mental patients from
the town hospital in her
home. She wouldn't let them
smoke in her house, so the
patients would walk up and
down her driveway for exer-
cise, smoking cigarettes.
That's what I remember
about her patients walking
the driveway puffing on ciga-
rettes," said Welch.
"She did that for years. She
had patients going in and
going out. I'd walk home from
school and I'd cross the street
to the other side when I got
near her house. It was a little
scary. But they were all harm-
less. I was just a little girl."
The new-found friends
exchanged contact informa-


tion, and agreed to meet each
month.
"Something like this has
never happened to me in my
14 years here at Sharky's," said
Welch. "It was such a wonder-
ful thing for neighbors to
meet like that years later. It
made my Christmas."
"They were opening their
presents, and then here were
these presents for me! They
had bought me presents,"
said Cheney with a smile.
"This meeting was a Christ-
mas present in itself."

This is an architectural rendering of what the four-story building at 215-217 W. Venice Ave. will

Ssion granted a special exception for height Tuesday.

from neighboring downtown
businesses in support of the
project. There was only one
letter in opposition, answer-
ing the question of compati-
bility.
"What better evidence can
you have other than neigh-
bors of the property support-
ing it," Grimard said.
More height?
Planning commission has
final approval on height ex-
ceptions, according to Plan-
ning and Zoning Director
Tom Slaughter.
All the Griffiths need to do
now is file for the proper
building permits and con-
struction can begin.
One Venice resident warn-
ed commissioners they would
start a dangerous trend of
taller buildings along down-
Stown West Venice Avenue.
Slaughter disagrees, saying
the height exception process
gives the city freedom to
approve unique projects like
the one brought forward by
the Griffiths and still deny
others.
"Special exceptions are
evaluated on a case-by-case
process basis," Slaughter said.
"You can have one approved
on one side of the street, and
one denied on the other."
The owners do not come
close to using up all allowable
building space, another rea-
son commissioners said they
approved the project.

Griffith said. "A lot of our
friends and acquaintances
seem to think it's a good idea
for Venice."

B CLAUDE LEWIS
SRTS EDITOR

If the Venice High girls var-
s.y soccer team is going to
Hve success in the upcoming
district tournament, it will
lave to find a way to win the
close ones.
The Lady Indians fought
t rd in a chilly Powell-Davis
Stadium Tuesday night, but
Ice again came up short as
1Jmon Bay scored a 5-2 vic-
1 The final score was a bit
misleading, as the Lady Man-
t scored twice in the final
ee minutes.
SLemon Bay, which swept
nice this year, improved to
12-8. Venice'fell to 7-12.
The score was 3-2 and the
Idy Indians were trying to
t the equalizer when the
antas got two late goals. The
irst came off the left foot of
tihe Mlancas leading scorer,
Shawnna Rocklein. The other
was tallied by Amanda Moore
in the final seconds.
"Our defense had pushed
up and we lost our marks,"
Venice coach Allen Pfundtner
said.
SKristen Johnson gave
Venice a 1-0 lead but Rocklein
came back to tie it with her
20th goal of the season.
Jessica Gardberg's goal off a
cross came in the final ticks of
the first half, giving Lemon
Bay a 2-1 lead.
"That's something we al-
ways talk about," Lemon Bay
coach Troy Moore said. "They
gave up that goal in the last
niinute. Instead of going into
halftime tied, you're trailing
2 1."
Lisa Carroll made it 3-1 10
minutes into the second half,
but1 Venice closed to within
3-2 with 15 minutes left
when Kristina Swanson con-
verted a penalty kick.
Venice closes out the regu-
lar season Thursday at Sara-
sota in a 6 p.m. match. The
lady Indians have third seed
in Class 5A District 11 and will
take on second seed Manatee
in the tournament semifinals
next Wednesday at Lakewood

Lady Indian hoopsters hold off pesky Manatee team


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Manatee High girls basket-
ball team hasn't had a whole
lot of success this season, but
perhaps seeing the Venice
green brings out the best in
the Her-icanes.
While Venice was able to
defeat Manatee for the sec-
ond time this season
Tuesday night, Lori Stark-
weather's bunch made the
Lady Indians work for their
71-55 victory.
Venice improved to 16-4


overall and 6-1 in Class 5A
District 11. Manatee fell to 5-
10 and 2-3.
"I thought we would beat
them pretty easily here, but
they played well and gave us
a fight," Venice coach Joe Di-
Giacomo said before heading
to Sal and Tony's Pizzeria for
a post game meal with assis-
tant Cayll Smith. "They're not
bad."
Venice led by three points
(17-14) after one quarter and
five (36-31) at the half. Man-
atee was still hanging around
midway through the fourth


quarter before a late spurt
gave the Lady Indians a safe
pad.
The shooting of senior
wing Dana Nostin helped
Venice stay ahead when the
going got tough. She scored
all 14 of her points over the
first three quarters. Manatee
had cut it to 29-27 in the sec-
ond quarter when Nostin
nailed a three to give the Lady
Indians a little breathing
room. She followed that up
with a two-pointer and then
fed ever-improving reserve
center Samantha Worthing-


ton for a layup that put Ven-
ice up 36-29.
Center Lisa Hough had a
big third quarter, scoring nine
of her game-high 24 points
there.
Manatee was able to hang
around behind the perfor-
mances of three players -
center Hayley Harvey (19
points) and guards Lauren
Cruz (14) and Megan Ozikas
(12).
Manatee had crept to
within'56-51 in the fourth
quarter before Natalie Gau=
dreau canned a gigantic three


to make it 59-51.

Improving Charlotte boosters edged by Venice

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS WRITER

It was another loss for the
Charlotte High boys soccer
team, but this one was easier
to swallow than the rest for
coach Dave Masony.
The Tarpons were com-:
petitive on the road against
one of the area's better squads
Monday night before falling
2-1 at Venice's Powell-Davis
Stadium.
Unbeaten this year, Venice
improved to 9-3-3 overall and
5-1-1 in Class 5A District 11.
Charlotte still has only won
once in the district, but Mon-
day's effort was a lot stronger
than a 4-1 setback to the
Indians earlier this season..
"This is what we've been
looking for all season,"
Masony said. "We came to
play. I actually wanted us to
start peaking around a week
ago, but we're getting there.
We had all 11 playing as a
team. This the best we've
played as a team."
Masony got a strong mid-


field effort from Jonathan
Ramirez and some heads up
play by keeper Zach Sand-
rock.
Rafael Sabillon scored in
the first half for the Tarpons
to tie the score at 1-1,
Venice got the match-win-
ning goal from Eric Monville
in the second half.
Indian keeper Gabe Aguile
made some big stops to pre-
serve the W.
Venice coach Mike James
said having classes off be-
cause of the Martin Luther
King holiday hurt his side's
effort.
"Not having school hurt,"
he said. "We were lackluster."
Venice was also missing
key players like Erich Hess
and Marcos Arce. Paul "The
Seagull" Siegel played sick.
Tyler Simpson gave Venice
a 1-0 lead on an assist from
Tony Carlin.
Monville's game-winning
goal was assistedby Francisco
Juani.

to Jeremiah Trotter is Gerald
Perry, a mean, strong, agile
middle linebacker who cov-
ers ground, hits hard and can
defend against the run or
pass.


Perry is a 6-foot, 3-inch,
260-pounder out of Sarasota
who has seen his share of
adversity but keeps bouncing
back to play the game he
loves.
SThe Vikings will begin their
second season in the South-
ern States Football League
with Saturday night's opener
against the expansion Brad-
enton Gladiators at Powell-
Davis Stadium.
Perry was a four-year let-
terman at Sarasota High,
playing tailback and safety
for the Sailors. He graduated
in 1996. Perry was recruited
by Florida but a nasty car
accident wiped out his pos-.
sible career in Gainesville.
S"My head went through
the windshield," he said,
showing a scar on his face. "It
was pretty bad."
Perry came home to Sara-
sota to heal. By the time he
was healthy, his buddy Bry-
ant Carter had landed a spot
on the roster of a semi-pro
team called the Texas As-
sassins. Carter helped land
Perry' a job with the Arl-
ington-based team.
"Texas is more serious
about football, but I think
Florida has better athletes,"
surmised Perry of his experi-
ences in the Lone Star State.


Perry enjoyed one year
being paid to play football,
but he came back to Florida.
Then came another auto acci-

Garcia approved



for Nevada job


BY ANGELINE TAYLOR
STAFF WRITER

All systems are go for
Hector Garcia, Sarasota Coun-
ty Schools director of safety
and security, to take the helm
as the leader for the police
force of the fifth-largest school
district in the country.
The Clark County, Nev.,
School District's board ap-
proved Garcia as the chief of
police in a Thursdar board
meeting. Sarasota County
Schools Superintendent Gary
Norris received Garcia's verbal
resignation prior to the vote.
"From what I can tell, he
missed the day-in and day-
out of running a police force,"
Norris had said. "He has a
been-there, done-that level of
experience."
The Clarke County board's
nod earns Garcia an $8,000
pay increase. His experience
also includes being the No. 2
man in charge of the police
force for the Palm Beach
County, Fla., school district.
Yet, questions surfaced
during the Jan. 11 board work-
shop about whether law


enforcement experience was
necessary for Sarasota County
school's director of safety and
security.
"We paid all this money
for the safety report," John
Lewis, board member said.
"We don't need a person in
law enforcement for this
position."
The safety report in.ques-
tion was produced by Ken-
neth Trump, president of the
National School Safety and
Security Services.
The Trump report cited
the need for the creation of a
department of safety and
security and appointment of
a department head. Garcia's
experience was more consul-
tant-based for the district. Yet,
he did enact changes, Norris
said.
Garcia's achievements in
Sarasota County include revis-
ing the crisis response manu-
als and CD Roms; providing
ID badges for 100 percent of
the school-based staff; work-
ing on the security aide pilot
program; and conducting
numerous internal investiga-
tions.

OUR VIEW


Safety on the roads is eve


s responsibility


We hope you have read our two stories
on bicycle riding, which reminded
everyone that bikes are considered
vehicles under Florida law and are subject to
the same rules of the road as automobiles.
Too many people are ignorant of that fact, or
choose to ignore it, and put their own lives
and those of other vehicle operators at risk.
As you will see elsewhere on this page,
reader Craig McCullough wrote to remind us
that that principle is a two-way street, if you
will: Just as bicycles are subject to the same
rules as cars, they are also equally entitled to
Sbe on the road.
That fact is lost on too many motorists,
who show too little respect for people who
choose a nonmotorized means of transporta-
tion.
And by focusing on bicycles we certainly


didn't mean to imply that two-wheeled vehi-
cles contribute disproportionately to the
accidents that occur on our roads or the grid-
lock that clogs them. Cars are still to blame
for that; it's just the case that somebody is
more likely to be seriously injured in a con-
frontation between a bicycle and a car.
Our roads are dangerous for several rea-
sons. Among them are:
The high volume of traffic that churs in
and out ofVenice each day, especially during
"the season."
The lack of major north-south and east-
west arteries to serve as alternate routes
when streets are closed by accidents or con-
struction.
Plain old bad driving by people who just
shouldn't be behind the wheel of a car due to
immaturity, overmaturity or legal loss of dri-


ving privileges. (Have you ever noticed the
number of local arrests for driving while
license suspended with knowledge?)
Law enforcement leniency for traffic
offenses so as not to upset our snowbirds and
tourists. Perhaps the classic example of that
was the Venice police officer who veered into
and through a turn lane ito get around a car
that was blocking an intersection downtown
Friday, when northbound 1-75 was closed for
several hours.
You don't have to be in Venice long to see
driving that will make you scratch your head
and wonder how the motorist has lived as
long as he or she has: crossing several lanes of
traffic without signaling; blowing through
stop signs and red lights; treating lane
dividers as an obstacle course.
What's needed to make the roads safer?


Well, more routes and tougher law enforce-
ment would certainly help, as would stricter
licensing standards, but those things are
beyond an individual driver's control. What
you can easily do is be patient, be alert and
avoid driving when the roads are likely to be
at their busiest.
Above all, obey the rules of the road. Keep
to the speed limit don't drive too slow or
too fast. Signal your turns and lane changes.
Don't turn on red when there's a sign pro-
hibiting it. Try actually stopping at stop signs.
(AVenice cop is famous for responding to the
usual excuse, "But officer, I slowed down," by
saying, "If I were hitting you.with my night-
stick, would you want me to slow down or
stop?")
And watch out for those bicyclists, just in
case they're not watching out for you.


Reforming Social Security

a 'Leninist' strategy?


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


As the battle over Social
Security heats up, I found that
the roots of the current Bush
administration plan closely
resemble a 21-year-old strate-
gy published in the Cato
Journal, vol. 3, no. 2, 1983.
The article was titled
"Achieving Social Security
Reform: A 'Leninist Strategy,'
and it was written by Stuart
Butler and Peter Germanis. To
find the original text, go to the
Cato Web site and search the
Journal articles dealing with
Social Security.
The Cato Institute is a radi-
cally conservative, Libertar-
ian group that, in .general,
would do away with the fed-'
eral government if possible,
but in practcal terms wants
to eliminate federal regula-
tions and programs like Social
Security.
In 1983 itwas workingwith
the similarly right-wing Her-
itage Foundation. Butler was
a Cato director and Germanis
an analyst at Heritage. Her-
itage sponsored a conference
in 1982 on the tppic of Social
Security and that began the
process that led to the article.
Here are some key con-
cepts from the article you will
recognize in today's debate
and in the history that has led
up to it.
1. The authors recognized
that Social; Security had a
strong coalition of support-
ers, and they say, "We must
begin to divide this coalition
and cast doubt on the picture
of reality it presents to the
general public."
2. The route to that division
was to offer government sup-
port for IRAs and 401-K plans
(what they termed a super
IRA law.) This would, they
write, "make it a small-scale
private Social Security sys-
tem."
3. "Social Security reform
requires mobilizing various
coalitions that stand to bene-
fit from the change, the busi-
ness community and finan-
cial institutions in particular."
4. "We must recognize that
we need more than a mani-
festo ... we must construct a
coalition that will reap bene-
fits from the IRA-based pri-
vate system banks, insurance
companies and that will gain
from providing plans to the
public." Key to the approach
was, of course, the enormous
profits that would accrue to
securities firms, mutual
funds, etc.
That should be enough for
readers to see that the au-


thors' strategy has been un-
folding over these 21 years
and that the president and
the Republican leadership in
Congress think the time is
right for the authors' "revolu-
tion."
If you need a stronger tie,
consider Andrew G. Biggs,
made associate commission-
er of Social Security for Re-
tirement Policy in 2003. Biggs,
along with the president,
advocated private accounts at
a White House meeting last
week. He was formerly an
analyst at the Cato Institute.
The path is not entirely
clear, however, because some
Republicans in Congress un-
derstand that "privatization"
is not really related to solving
the future funding problems
of .Social Security. In fact,
many in Congress blanched
when the White House began
talking about the need to cut
benefits and changing initial
benefits.
Jonathan Wiseman and
Mike Alien of the Washington
Post write that the changes
would result in a retiree in
2075 receiving only' 54 per-
cent of the benefit now prom-
ised by the system.
There is a broad cross-sec-
tion of the public and the
media who oppose the ad-
ministration's direction. Opin-
ion columns and editorial
cartoons opposing the antici-
pated changes have been
published by writers for Cox,
Scripps Howard, Creators
Syndicate, USA Today, the At-
lanta Constitution, the Wash-
ington Post, The New York
Times and the Sarasota Her-
ald-Tribune, to name a few
that I have seen.
Most significantly, AARP,
which supported the presi-
dent on drug benefits, oppos-
es the privatization of Social
Security and is running a
nationwide ad campaign
pointing out the increased
risks for its members.
The most visible support
for the president's plan, other
than Republican leaders,
comes from financial institu-
tions and their associations.
Even here in the Gondolier
Sun, Richard Curcio, presi-
dent of Integrity Investments
Inc., has been the representa-
tive of that community who
responded to my first column'
on the topic.
Mr. Curcio's response is
worth looking at because he
calls Social Security a "Ponzi
scheme," a ludicrous concept
for a person who theoretical-
ly, at least, should understand
the nation's financial system
and who makes a living advis-
ing others about investments.
(Words very similar to Mr.
Curcio's have appeared in let-
ters to the editor of other pa-
pers, an interesting coinci-
dence.)'
Mr. Curcio writes that
Social Security is a Ponzi
scheme because it depends
on an unfunded liability of

LETTERS ROM OUR READERS

Local vets want to help children of the tsunami


Editor:
The true measure of people is what they do and what they
give. Well, Venice, you must be standing very tall because once
again your generosity to Toys for Tots made 2004 a Christmas
to remember.
The Gulf Coast Chapter of the United States Marine Corps
League and Auxiliary has been providing Christmas for hun-
dreds of children in the Venice area for 16 years. The "behind-
the-scenes" work by these dedicated Marines in organizing
such an immense undertaking is monumental.
Two years ago we went one step further, expanding Toys for
Tots to a war-torn country still trying to rebuild itself -
Vietnam. This dream, made real by the public's generous sup-
port, has strengthened the relationship among our American
ambassadors, the Marine Corps and the families in Vietnam,
This year we would like to expand the generosity of the
Venice community and recognize another need: the victims of
the tsunami the men, women and children of Indonesia, Sri
Lanka, Tamil Nadu, Thailand and bordering areas. With the
continued support ofVenice businesses and individual donors,
we can bring the spirit of the holidays to the children of this
disaster-torn population.
Dedication is giving with all your heart, and it makes life all
the more precious to those who give, as well as to those who
receive.
So once again we are asking our Venice family to extend its
generosity and let us bless these precious children with a holi-
day to remember in 2005.

Development approved
Editor:
John Simmonds is iricor-
rect regarding Venetian
Shores. In fact, the three-story
development was approved
by the planning commission
on Nov. 2, with thanks to the
developer.
To his credit, Mr. Giambetti
chose to work with neighbors
to make his development
more compatible with the
neighborhood. This is a prac-
tice we would like to see the
planning commission and


city council encourage.
Late last spring, many peo-
ple attended a planning com-
mission meeting to oppose
the much higher condomini-
um development initially
proposed for Venetian Shores.
More than 900 people signed
a petition opposing this pro-
posal.
Shortly afterward at a city
council meeting, Mayor Cala-
maras stated that the people
wanted development on the
island limited to three stories,
or 35 feet, and that they (city


council) should agree to that
request.
We hope that city council
and the planning commis-
sion will continue to limit the
height of development on the
island to 35 feet.

Don't forget
badmotorists
Editor:
Thus far we have had two
front-page articles about the
travails of bicyclists: one high-
lighting failure to abide traffic
signals, one concentrating on
use of the extended middle
finger. A reader might think
that in the otherwise perfect
world of road users, cyclists
are the lone offenders.
I invite Tommy McIntyre to
sit with me at any intersection
-for an hour and watch motor
vehicle "rolling stops."
I am an avid biker and
agree that cyclists seldom
come to a complete stop at
stop signs. Casual observa-
tion will also show that this
applies to motor vehicle dri-
vers.
Indeed, at the cited inter-
section of Palermo and No-
komis, I have frequently seen
eastbound drivers not even
slow down at the stop sign,
instead concentrating on the
light a block away.
The vast majority of.bicy-
clists are polite, respectful
and ride quite defensively.
Having outlined the deficien-
cies of those of us on two
wheels, perhaps you would
also print a front-page article
outlining Florida Bicycle


Safety Laws. Particular atten-
tion should be paid to the
statement: "Bicyclists have
the same rights to the road-
way as operators of other
vehicles."
The vast majority of bicy-
clists ride safely and with con-
sideration. The vast majority
of motorists do the same. Is
there nothing more impor-
tant or interesting for the
front page?

Enjoying Martin-
Simmonds debate
Editor:
I love the newspaper de-
bate between Ed Martin and
John Simmonds.
I note the self-serving as-
sertion from Simmonds that
he proudly is a member of
Citizens for Quality Gov-
ernment.
Not long ago, I witnessed
firsthand how Simmonds at
council meetings sucked up
to George Hunt and Dean
Calamaras. Lo and behold,
there was a vacancy on the
council and who should be
elected but John Simmonds.
CQG helped him get elected.
The debate is about
money. The question, unan-
swered, was about the motive
Dan Boone had for forming
his PAC: Did Boone start it to
control council and put mil-
lions of dollars in his pockets,
or merely to assure citizens
that his only interest was
good government?

LET 'EM HAVE IT! HOW MUCH DO YOU TIP m:. "i" T KE CALL 207.111.

Offensive properties just not offensive enough


Weedy. This is my idea of one of the biggest eyesores in
Venice: On any given street in South Venice the fact that what
was once a nice lawn is now brown weeds, about 8-12 inches
high, just under what the code enforcement considers a code
violation with open patches of gray-tan sand; cars parked all
over the front yard, along with the grotesque brown-green hue
of what once was a white tile roof. People think they don't see
the roof and so no one else does. It is very noticeable from the
street. These homes are so close to the Gulf of Mexico and the
values are skyrocketing and there are homes that look like ten-
ements all over SouthVenice.


Go south. I am calling
about the town fathers. I hope
they include the south end of
41 going down to the Circus
Bridge in the architectural
zone. It would certainly en-
hance the whole area.
Trunk road. North on Au-
burn Road is a huge elephant
trap just waiting to gobble up
a person or vehicle. When it
rains, the water is deep and
swift.
Small-town ambience. I
grew up in Sarasota but mov-
ed north when I married. I
knew I would move back one
day. I chose to move to Venice
after seeing the growth in
Sarasota. Years ago Sarasota
was a lot like Venice.
I hope Venice does not
become like Sarasota is now.
This city still has the small-
town ambience. That is why
so many have chosen to live
here and stay here. The plan-
ning commission should be


accountable for all decisions
for changing the city. If people
want to live in a big city, then
they should move to one and
leave Venice the way it is.
Be heard. Let the air raid
sirens begin. City council will
get together for another
roundtable discussion on the
airport. We as many at the air-
port that are in business
should have a voice.
Tuesday is the day for all to
come together to discuss the
future of the airport. It is vital


for all to be able to discuss the
positions we hold. Venice is a
wonderful town. The airport
is a wonderful property and
we need to support responsi-
ble growth that supports the
fundamentals of the airport
while taking into account the
financial requirements need-
ed to support that property.
Let's get together and come
up with a solution this time.
Be alert. Who is watching
the airport? With all the
planes coming in day and
night, what is to prevent ter-
rorists coming in? Am I the
only one concerned about
this?
Also when you go to three
papers a week, maybe you
could do something about the
pages with faint print that
cannot be read. This happens
over and over and I would
think something could be
done about it.

The decision to spend some

MARTIN from page 13A


the U.S. Government "mere-
lylOUs of the U.S. government"
Now, another way to think
about that is that the U.S. gov-
ernment has given a guaran-
tee to the millions of Amer-
icans in the system today,
workers and retirees. That is
exactly the same position the
government takes with trea-
sury bonds and similar Unit-
ed States obligations part
of a deficit, that privatization
would swell by another $2
trillion or so.
Our economy and pros-
perity are based on the pur-
chase of our treasury instru-
ments by people around the
world. Japan, for example, is
one of the largest investors.
Should the government
default on the Ponzi scheme
of federal bonds and notes,
our economy would collapse.
Would it default on citizens of
the United States drawing
Social Security before or after
it defaulted on other treasury


obligations?
I assume Mr. Curcio advis-
es his clients against buying
treasury bonds, mere IOUs of
the U.S. government.
As the New York Times edi-
torialized, "If the trust fund's
treasury securities are worth-
less, someone better tell in-
vestors around the world, who
currently hold $4.3 trillion in
treasury debt that carries the
exact same government oblig-
ation to pay as the trust fund
securities. (Jan. 10)."
As for debunking the "pri-
vatization myth," let's look at
words not from some dread-
ed "liberal," but from within
the White House itself.
David Wehner, a White
House political strategist
working for the president's
political guru, Karl Rove,
wrote in a memo that sur-
faced last week, "We simply
cannot solve the Social Se-
curity problem with personal
retirement accounts (they)


are insufficient to that task."
Only modest changes are
needed to face the Social Se-
curity deficits of 2042 (Social
Security Administration esti-
mate) or 2052 (nonpartisan
Congressional Budget Office
estimate.)
The changes would be
more modest than those in
1977 and 1983 and would not
require $2 trillion in new bor-
rowing, but could be achieved
by modest increases in taxes
and changes in benefits that
could be phased in over the
next three or four decades and
would result in guaranteeing
inflation-adjusted income for
life Social Security.

Bigger, better Pier 1 opening


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS


Venice residents are prom-
ised the newest showcase of
spring merchandise courtesy
of Pier 1 Imports: A new store
opens on Tamiami Trail in
froht ofWal-Mart's Superstore
and Books-A-Million.
Opening day is scheduled
for Feb. 18. Customers will
receive a sample of the com-
pany's latest candle fragrance.
and lots of new products.
As the final interior work
is completed Jan. 24, associ-
ates will prepare the store for
the opening in an 18-day turn
around. Most Pier 1 Imports'
locations are 10,000 square
feet. The company, however,
researched the Venice area
and decided it was a strong
enough market to support an
11,009-square-foot store.
"We are currently moving
into mid-size markets having
a wide shopping base with
consumers who care about
their homes and we feel like
Venice is one of those mar-
kets," said Kelly Keenum,
Public Relations Coordinator.
Pier 1 Imports just intro-
duced a new line, "Special
Finds" ranging from full size,
upholstered furniture to hand
carved armoires, incorporat-
ing a special faster service.
Spacious pizzeria
opens on the island
A spacious new family ori-
entated restaurant with seat-
ing for 150 opened its doors
this week, Sal & Tony's Piz-
zeria in the Venice Shopping
Center on the island next to
the Dollar and Publix stores.
Sal Licata owned a New
York restaurant for 11 years
and partner, Tony Trevza, has
been a cook for more than
35 years. It's the first venture
in Florida for Nokomis resi-
dents Sal and his wife, Debbie
who is managing the deli and
restaurant.
Gregg Withey, also of
Nokomis, is,managing the
family sports bar where TVs
have been installed. Opening
from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., nine
employees will operate the
restaurant and delivery ser-
vice on the island.

South Venice Plaza
Wal-Mart has taken stor-
age space in the former Kash
n' Karry building at Galleria

FEMA extends deadline


STAFF REPORT


The Federal Emergency
Management Agency has ex-
tended the application dead-
line for Florida hurricane vic-
tims to register for disaster
assistance to Feb. 28.
FEMA decided on the ex-
tension last week after Florida
officials and legislators voiced
their concern that the agency
was still averaging more than
1,500 new registrations a day
in the state.
It is important to keep the
process open until everyone


who suffered damage has a
chance to call and get regis-
tered for assistance," said
Craig Fugate, FEMA's state
coordinating officer.
Those who still need to
register for assistance should
call the FEMA toll-free regis-
tration number at (800) 621-
FEMA (3362) or TTY (800)
462-7585 for those who are
speech- or hearing-impaired.
These numbers can also be
used by individuals or busi-
Snesses to update their infor-
mation or get information on
the status of their claims.


The FEMA teleregistration,
TTY and Helpline numbers
will be in operation through
Saturday during the hours of
6 a.m.-10 p.m.
Beginning Sunday, until
further notice, the lines will
then operate daily 7 a.m.-7
p.m.
Applicants may also regis-
ter online by going to the
FEMA Web site at fema.gov
and clicking on the red "hot-;
link" button in the upper
right-hand portion of the
page marked "Register for
Disaster Assistance Online."

Words of Comfort
Those whom we have loved
never really leave us.
They live on forever in our
hearts, and cast their
radiant light onto our every
shadow.
-Sylvana Rossetti



SWords of Comfort
And when the stream
Which overflowed the soul was
passed away,
SA consciousness remained that it
has left,
Deposited upon the silent shore
Of memory, images and precious
thoughts,
That shall not die, and cannot be
destroyed.

Teen injured
A Venice teenager was
injured when she rode her
bicycle across U.S. 41 at Alli-
gator Drive into the path of a
car.
Ashley Swadling, 13, was
flown to Bayfront Medical
Center. The Florida Highway
Patrol report listed her in-
juries as critical.
The incident happened at
6:28 p.m., Jan. 16.
According to the police
report, Swadling had stopped
at the intersection ofTamiami
Trail and Alligator Drive.
Jason Hill, 23, 400 block
Falls of Venice Circle, was
traveling south on U.S. 41 in
the middle lane approaching
the traffic signal.
Swadling tried to cross the
highway and went directly
into the path of Hill's car.
Hill's car had an expired
tag.
Alert ER doctor
catches suspect
A man was able to fool
some of the doctors some of
the time, but not all of the
doctors all of the time, a
Venice Police Department
Report shows.
Andrezej Bierc, 41, 1000


block Boundary Blvd., Ro-
tonda, was arrested and
charged with withholding
information from a practi-
tioner (physician).
Bierc is a corrections offi-
cer.
The incident happened at
Bon Secours Venice Hospital
at 5:24 p.m., Jan. 16.
According to the police
report, a hospital emergency
room physician told police
Bierc was complaining of
back pain and asked for 10
mg of Percocet, a narcotic
pain medication.
The doctor recognized
Bierc from a prior visit and
became suspicious. He did a
prescription history check on
Bierc.
The arresting officer stated
the physician was "amazed"
at what he learned from the
history check.
The record showed Bierc
had filled a total of 13 pre-
scriptions from eight doctors
since September 2004.
During that period, Bierc
received a total of 730 Hy-
drocodone, Endocet and
Oxycodone pills, all pain-
killers.
Bierc admitted to investi-
gators that he is addicted to


pain medication.
They asked him whether
he had ever been to the hos-
pital in Englewood because
he lives near there. He said he
had not.
Further investigation
showed Bierc had been to the
Englewood hospital at least
five times.

Sarasota wants legislative action on red lights


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

Armed with anecdotal evi-
dence that red-light running
is becoming a significant
problem in the county and
across the state, Sarasota
County commissioners are
taking the lead in solving the
problem.
Jan. 11, commissioners
passed a resolution calling on
the state Legislature to adopt
legislation allowing local gov-
ernments to install cameras
to detect violators.
Many other states already
have such legislation in place,
but state laws in Florida do
not permit the use of the tech-
nology.
According to the resolu-
tion, red-light running is
"aggressive driving behavior"
that can lead to serious in-
juries or death to the driver of
the car and other drivers and
pedestrians. It also notes that
drivers who run a red light
"usually increase their speed"

At Staub's urging, county
officials have already ob-
tained a copy of the North
Carolina legislation to study.
Typically, the cameras
operate through a sensor
installed at the beginning of
the intersection. When the
light turns red, the sensor is
activated and the camera
takes a photo usually of
the license plate of any
vehicle that trips the sensor.
The offending driver later
receives a citation in the mail,
which in Florida can cost a
minimum of $65, and can run
more if a county has enacted
a state-permitted surcharge.
In the absence of the
camera legislation, Sarasota

County has
taken the step
of installing
white indica-
tor lights to
alert deputies a
to red-light
runners. In
South Coun-
ty, the indica- Detert
tor lights are
present at the intersection of
River Road and Winchester
Boulevard, U.S. 41 at Sham-
rock Boulevard, and U.S. 41
Bypass at Venice Avenue.
For the county to get the
legislation enacted, the bat-
tle will start in its own back
yard.
State Rep. Nancy Detert,


R-Venice, whose district in-
cludes South County, said
Friday she would not sup-
port the legislation if it were
introduced during the up-
coming session in March.
Detert said she was philo-
sophically opposed to the
idea, viewing it not as a safe-
ty measure but as a means
for the cities and counties to
.gain extra money.
"I insist they catch me the
old-fashioned way.- with a
person," Detert said. "This is
just another way we give up
our freedom and privacy."

Controlled burns: Burning the forest to save it


Controlled burns are a useful tool in land man-
agement, provided you go by the book. Evidence
of what happens when you don't can still be seen
along 1-75 on the way to North Port.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

There was smoke in the
northeast sky recently.
And, there was fire in
'this case a prescribed bur at
the T. Mabry Carlton Jr. Mem-
orial Reserve.
That means it was deliber-
ately set by forestry officials
for a specific purpose.
"Prescribed burns are a
land-management tool for
restoration of a healthy, di-
verse ecosystem," Sarasota
CountyEnvironmental Special-
ist JeffWeber said. "Prescribed


burns benefit the forest by
consuming dry, dead plant
material and returning nutri-
ents to the soil."
More than 1,000 acres of
the 24,565-acre preserve were
burned. Sarasota County Fire
Department personnel and
staff from the Florida Division
of Forestry were onsite to
monitor the burn.
'Just what we wanted'
Smoke from the controlled
bum could be seen from the
Venice Gondolier Sun build-
ing on the island.
"It is going well, just what


we wanted," Weber said by
cell phone from the site.
"Wind is out of the southeast
about 415 miles per hour,
blowing it away from the
highway."
Winds carried the smoke
away from all major highways
and residential areas.
Weber said burs also ben-
efit many species of wildlife
such as the gopher tortoise,
which relies on open, fire-
maintained habitats to sur-
vive.
"In addition, controlled
burs are critically important
to lessen the likelihood of
wildfires by reducing the
amount of available fuel," he
said.
Protecting people from
physical harm, smoke-filled
air and poor water quality is
the basis for the regulations


and standards that now gov-
ern prescribed burning.
A number of new burning
regulations and rules in
Florida in the last 30 years
represent the state's response
to the Clean Air Act, ensuring
that smoke from prescribed
burs will not affect compli-
ance with air quality stan-
dards.
Fire triangle
To create fire you need
three things; heat, fuel and
air.
To keep a fire burning for
any useful length of time you
must have these three ele-
ments in the correct ratios.
Conversely, depleting the
fuel lessens the chances of
fire and is key to saving our
forests; fight fire with fire,
bur it under controlled con-


editions before nature does.
. June and July 1998 are a
primer for saving our forests
by burning parts of them
before nature does.
Bum, baby, bum
Dame Nature gave new
meaning to the term scorch-
ed-earth policy during the
dry, summer months seven
years ago as more than 1,000
wildfires devastated homes
and the environment in Cen-
tral Florida.
Tens of thousands of fire-
fighters battled the drought-
and-tinder-fed blazes. Hun-
dreds of thousands of acres
burned.
Thousands of people felt
the effects of the acrid smoke
that hung in the sky like a
dirty blanket. Emergency
rooms were inundated with


people suffering preexisting
bronchial and respiratory
problems exacerbated by the
smoke and soot.
Thousands of homes were
destroyed. Traffic on many
main arteries was snarled.
Fireworks were banned on
orders from the governor.
The wildfires caused losses
in the hundreds of millions of
dollars for agriculture, com-
mercial timberland, private
property and tourism.
It all began because the
ground was laden with detri-
tus from the scrub lands and
forests. That provided the
fuel; lightning was the
match.
And that is exactly why
foresters recently set fire to a
thousand acres at the Carlton
Reserve to deplete the fuel
and renourish the land.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first
in a series of articles on some of
the diverse neighborhoods that
Make up the Venice area.
BY BARBARA ANN BUGLIOLI
GUEST WRITER

Jacaranda Country Club
Village West
1901 jacaranda Blvd.
Venice, FL
Jacaranda Village, at 22
years and counting, has come
of age.
Since its first model homes,
were showcased by Gulf
Stream Land and Develop-
ment Corp. during the 1983
Parade of Homes. 153 houses
have been built and the deed-
restricted subdivision has
become a. neighborhood in
which the emphasis is on
"neighbor."


The Parade is an annual
home show sponsored by the
Contractors Association of
Sarasota, showcasing the lat-
est home models and innova-
tions. That year's parade was
centered in Jacaranda West
and included homes by
builders -such as Rockwell,
Fairfield, Wedgewood and
Lincoln. The association se-
lected suitable sites and
bought the adjoining home-
sites. Member builders were
invited to purchase a lot and
build a model home. Each
house was chosen to present
the capabilities of the build-
ers of that year. The public
was offered a variety of archi-
tectural styles. If you were
lucky enough to 'buy one of
the model homes, you would
notice and enjoy the planned
objective of bringing the out-


doors inside through creative
roofing systems and state-of-
the-art building materials
and design.
In addition to the diversity.
of home designs within the
community is the range of lot
shapes and sizes. In this day
of cookie-cutter develop-
ments with minimum space
between homes, Jacararda
Village stands out because of
the, larger lots and space
bet reen homes. Even the
roads seem wider than those
in many of the newer devel-
opments.
I first discovered the
uniqueness of the neighbor-
hood after listing a Rockwell-,
built home for a woman who
had nmoed north to be closer
to her family as she aged. My
voyage of discovery contin-
ued during the next two


village,






SVillage


months as I showed the
house, stopped by to deal
with occasional needed re-
pairs or simply checked the
house.
A couple who lived across
the street stopped by to wel-
come me one day and contin-
ued to stop by on a regular
basis to make sure I was safe
and to help me out with an
occasional home repair or
vwo. Another neighbor on the
other side of South Doral,
David Hanrahan, let me know
about broken sprinkler heads
in need of repair..A third lady
stopped by one evening to
commend me on the fine job
I as doing deodorizing the
garage floor.
"T haven't even done that in
my own home," she laughing-
ly said. Right from the start,
neighbors and even land-


scapers would wave at me as I
drove by in my car.
Landscapers are abundant,
in this neighborhood of well-
cared for homes. The foliage
is mature but not overgrown,
another example of the pride
of ownership evident on
every street.
Becoming more and more
intrigued by the area, I started
researching the ,history of
JacarandaVillage. It is located
in the woods between Quail
Lake, Lake of the Woods and
Venice Gardens and bounded
along one side by the Alligator
Creek bird sanctuary preserve
and the tree-lined fairways of
the 18-hole Jacaranda West
Golf and Country Club.
Many homes look out at
the recently refurbished

Booker High School



to hold feature benefit


VHS Chorus performs at Epiphany Catheral


STAFF REPORT

In November 2004, Booker
High School Visual and Per-
forming Arts Theatre De-
partment competed with 40
other schools from through-
out the state to win first
place at the Florida Theatre
Conference's Secondary
School One-Act Play Festival.
For their victory, the Booker
show has been invited to
perform in Greensboro, N.C.,
at the South Eastern Theatre
Conference. There, "Suessical
the Musical" will represent
not only Booker, but the en-
tire state of Florida.
If Booker wins the regional
conference from among the
10 states competing, it would
represent the highest honor
attainable by a high school
theater troupe.
A cast and crew of 44 stu-
dents and 10 staff and chap-
erones with an extensive
stage set and costume col-
lection will travel to Greens-
boro in March. The students
need to raise $20,000 for
buses, hotel rooms and food
for this five day trip.
To raise money for their
trip, the troupe has decided


to do what it knows best -
host a benefit performance
on Sunday, Feb. 27. The ben-
efit will also have a silent
auction with all proceeds
going to help send "Seussical"
cast and crew north. The
performance will actually be
a double feature. Those at-
tending will be treated to
"Booker's Cabaret Roadshow:
Another Opening, Another
Show: Cole Porter Revue" and
the award-winning "Seussical
the Musical."
Being named the best in
the state was a great honor
for Booker High School, but
victory was especially mean-
ingful for the cast who had
fought through natural disas-
ter after natural disaster to
produce this now acclaimed
show. Almost immediately
after rehearsal began, a re-
lentless string of hurricanes
tore through the state having
a profound impact both pro-
fessionally and personally on
the cast. With rehearsals can-
celled and student perform-
ers being evacuated, the
prospects looked grim, but
through ingenuity of veteran
director Scott Keys and the
iron will of the cast, a vibrant


and captivating show was
.forged.
There are not many op-
portunities to see the collect-
ed works of revolutionary
composer Cole Porter share
a stage with the familiar
characters from the wonder-
ful world of Dr. Seuss.
Dr. Seuss once said,
"Fantasy is a necessary in-
gredient in living. It's a way
of looking at life through the
wrong end of a telescope.
And that enables you to
laugh at life's realities."
Never has this need for
laughter been as crucial as it
is now.
You are invited to spend a
few hours in a world of the
fantastic; where ethical ele-
phants up in a tree meet
small yellow people too tiny
to see. Meet in a world where
"anything goes" and what
may ensue there "ain't no
one who knows."
Tickets are on sale for
$25. The benefit will be held
at the Booker High School
Theatre on Sunday, Feb. 27, at
2 p.m. For reservations and
information contact Judi
Piercy, VPA box office, at
355-2967.

VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 7B


VVW L JI'JNEAI, E WN. 1, 20UU05


He served in Coast Guard, Marines and Army during WW II, Korea and Cold War


BY DON MOORE
SENIOR WRITER


Dick Bissett of Holiday
Park in North Port called me
and wanted to know when I
was going to have a story
about the Coast Guard, be-
cause he hadn't seen one and
he's been reading my stuff
right along. I explained that I
generally wrote about what I
received from readers.
This prompted him to say
he was in the Coast Guard. I
took it from there. Come to
find out, the old salt joined
the "Hooligan Navy" on Feb.
28, 1942, seven weeks after
the Japanese bombed Pearl
Harbor.
He and a couple of his
buddies didn't start out to
become Coast Guardsmen,
the trio wanted to be Marines.

"When we got down to the
recruiter's office in Spring-
field, Mass., I couldn't get in
because I was only 17 and
didn't have my mother's sig-
nature," the 80-year-old
North Port resident said. "I
forged her signature, but I still
couldn't get in because I had
flat feet."
As he was leaving the Ma-
rine recruiter's office a Navy
recruiter latched on to him.
The next thing he knew he
was in the Coast Guard. They
weren't concerned about his
flat feet.
"I didn't even know what
the Coast Guard was. I'd never
heard of them," he said. The
Naval recruit told him,
"They're the same thing 'as
the Navy."
If he was going to sea he
wanted to be aboard a ship.


Bissett got his wish. They sent
him to Canada to meet his
ship, the USS Frederick Lee, a
125-foot Coast Guard Cutter
that spent much of its time
trying to sink German sub-
marines in the North Atlantic
and the Denmark Straights,
between Iceland and Green-
land in the middle of the win-
ter. It was a daunting task
because the cutter he was on
could only make 16 knots at
flank speed. The German
subs could do 21 knots un-
derwater, he said..
Although their cutter was
equipped with depth charges,
Bissett said they never really
know if they sank any of the
enemy's U-boats. However,
he said they would see
German subs sailing from
Norway through the straights
on their way to attack ship-

g Time running out
for Navy pilot in desert
"I have aWorld War II story
of fate and an unbelievable
set of incidents which result-
ed in the rescue of a Navy flier
against incredible odds. And
it all happened here on Amer-
ican soil.
"The year was 1945 and Lt.
Cmdr. Ethan Allen, here
memory fails for it might have
been Allen Ethan, left Mira-
mar Naval Air Station, Calif.,
in a Navy aircraft and flew a
southeast course. Due to an
apparent mixup in refueling
his plane, he ran out of fuel
over the desert of southwest
New Mexico and crashed.
"He had tried to 'dead stick'
the plane in, but in the desert
terrain that's not possible.
There was no fire due to the
lack of fuel, but the aircraft
was torn apart and the pilot
ejected.
"He had not called in a May
Day and nobody knew he was
down. If he was overdue at his
destination no word was ever
broadcast. The fact there was
no official knowledge of this
situation was the first prob-
lem for the flier.
"He had suffered terrible
injuries. His scalp, from just
above his eyebrows, was torn
completely off his head and
the skin and hair were all
clunped up behind his neck.
He was covered with blood
and his left elbow was shat-
tered. These were the obvious
injuries. He was prostrate on
his back unable to move. His
life-threatening injuries were
the second problem.
"The remote location was
the third and an equally enor-
mous problem. The possibili-
ty of rescue in time to save
this man's life was at this point
extremely remote.
"From where he lay in the
desert, an ocean of sand and
scrub stretched in all direc-
tions as far as the eye could
see. Las Cruces; N.M., lay 40
miles northeast. El Paso,
Texas, about 35 miles south-
east. Demming, N.M., lay
northwest some 50 miles
away and Lordsburg even fur-
ther away to the west.
"There were ranches cov-
ering vast areas of desert.
There were thousands of
acres with no roads and sandy
pathways where people who
had business in the area used
to get around. The ruts filled
with drifted sand and were
constantly recut by the fevv
ranchers who lived out there.
"In this wilderness it hap-
pened there was a rancL
house luckily located within a
few miles of the crash sight.
However, the rancher didn't
know of the aircraft accident.
Here fate stepped in. The
rancher had to go out some-
where on an errand in his
pickup truck and he took his
little boy along.
"That evening at dinner
the tyke announced he had
seen an airplane on the
ground during the day's trav-
el. His dad questioned him
further. The boy gave satisfac-
tory answers.
"The man took the lad and
a light, as it was now dark, and
went to the location. It took a
while but he found the wreck-


age. This took a lot of bravery
on the part of the rancher. Not
knowing arid yet knowing
that what you are going to
find has to be horrible and
would turn many aside.

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


'Play Ball!'
Weeks before spring train-
ing games herald baseball's
annual rite of renewal, fans
can explore the rich history of
the sport and its impact on
the region in a new exhibit at
the Sarasota County History
Center.
"Play Ball!" explores the
role baseball played in the
1920s effort to market Sara-
sota as a great place to visit
and live. Payne Park opened
in the spring of 1924 when the
New York Giants arrived for
spring training.
Season tickets sold for $11
and general admission (or
viewing from the car) cost
$5.50.
The exhibit will feature
memorabilia and photo-
graphs of the teams that
trained in Payne Park in-
cluding the New York Giants,
Indianapolis Indians, Boston
Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers
and Chicago White Sox. The
team played its last game at
Payne Park in 1988. Demo-
lition of the park's baseball
field began two years later in
1990.
"Play Ball!" also looks at
other people and places in
the county's baseball experi-
ence. John "Buck" O'Neil,
who spent his youth in Sara-
sota, was a star in the Negro
Leagues.
Twin Lakes Park began as
the Kansas City Baseball
Academy, an institution that
combined baseball training
and studies at Manatee Junior
(Community) College.
The exhibit will continue
through May 27, 2005.
Exhibit hours are 10 a.m.-4
p.m. Monday through
Thursday, and 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
Saturday, except holiday
weekends.

The redesign was planned
by Chip Powell who also
designed the course at the
new Venetian Golf and River
Club. After an expenditure of
$2.1 million, which included
the relocation of several holes
and the removal of excess
bunkers, the throat has been
opened up making the course
far less work and much more
fun to play.
On Jan. 29, the golf club is
holding a Battle of the Sexes
tournament, pitting men and
women members of the club
with steak for the winners
and hot dogs for the losers.
Spouses or significant others
who do not play will have to
eat whatever their spouse has

This past holiday season,
one of the largest personal
holiday light displays was
moved to Venice City Hall
after the passing of its creator,
George Hakkio.
After his death, his widow
Susan donated the lighted
animal menagerie to the city
of Venice so even more peo-
ple could enjoy his efforts.
With the one exception of
the holiday light spectacle,
nearly all the cars seen in the
village belong to residents.
I started to wonder if that
was why so many people
seemed to gather by the mail-
boxes and walk the byways
hand-in-hand; there was a
spaciousness and serenity
that I grew to appreciate in
this village.

The Guardian Children's
Foundation has issued a
request for assistance to help
the hurricane victims and the
foundation, which is initiat-
ing a fund-raising effort that it
hopes will bring about a flow
of financial help to organiza-
tions such as the Salvation
Army and All Faiths Food
Bank. Both of those organiza-
tions are still on site, assisting
hurricane Florida victims,
beginning with the Charlotte
Harbor area.
Many people are still with-


over the renovation and
maintenance of the gate-
keeper house and adjacent
area at the entrance of South
Doral and Jacaranda.
New residents are quickly
meshed into the neighbor-
hood according to resident
Jan iErickson, who said that,
one way or another, you will
get to meet and enjoy your
fellow homeowners.
On Tuesday the custom is
that men and woman from
the community get together
':to spend the day on the fair-
ways.
At night they meet for din-
ner at the country club and,
to mix things up a bit, Chuck
Erickson takes a pack of play-
ing cards, cuts them in half,
places one half of each card at
each table setting.
The other half is randomly
given to a dinner guest ensur-
ing new friendships and a
clever initiation to the coun-
try club and neighborhood.

sometimes even though they
had insurance.
To this end, the foundation
has initiated "The Game of
the Greater Sarasota Area,
Hurricane Recovery Edition
2004." The game is similar to
Parker Brothers famous game
of "Monopoly." Instead of
street names, the game will
feature area business names.
.With the roll of the dice, one
can purchase a local busi-
ness. A Charlotte Harbor ver-
sion is in the planning stages,
with others to come.
To become a part of this
special game, buy one of the
squares. Prices range from
$229 for a regular square up
to $499 for a power corner
within the center area of the
game board. Buyers will re-
ceive a complimentary game
from the foundation and may
include discount coupons in
the games that will be sold in
the community.

advertising opportunities or

dation at (877) 659-9675.

Such observable modes of
behavior make the village and
its residents stand out.
Membership in the club is
not required as it sometimes
is, but most residents of
Jacaranda Village seem to be
involved in the club as well as
in the community.
The private member-own-
ed and operated club offers
golf, tennis and social mem-
berships. There is a year-
round golf program for men
and women. Members also
can participate in interclub
activities.
The neighborhood holds
regularly scheduled block
parties.
Over the years, the loca-
tion has proven to be very
convenient. The village is
within minutes of Interstate
75 and U.S. 41. The Frances T.
Bourne Jacaranda Library is
just across Jacaranda Boul-
evard from the village en-
trance and the Venice Village


Train Depot where they will
give tours of the restored
landmark Mondays,
Wednesday and Fridays,
every half-hour, beginning at
10 a.m., with the last tour
going out at 2:30 p.m. The
tours are free but donations
are welcome. Reservations
are needed for groups of 10 or
more. For group reservations,

scrapbooking, you can show
just how serious during an

Doing my research in old
newspapers and magazines
dating to the early years of
Jacaranda Village, I found an
ad that ran in one of the

"At Jacaranda West, a
stranger is just a friend you
haven't met."
Who would have thought
that the ad was right on. It
was for me and I was only
associated with the commu-
nity for a short time.

New SAT offers new challenges

CORRESPONDENT


Do you have questions
relating to your child's educa-
tion?Do you want to voice an
opinion about what's hap-
pening in our schools? This
column is focused on answer-
ing common questions and
sharing views on education.

You may have heard that
college bound students taking
the next Scholastic Aptitude
Test on March 12 will be the
first group to experience the
newly revised SAT.
After reviewing newly re-
leased preparatory materials
for this test, Barbara Schaefer,
with 20 years' experience
helping students "make the

I m


grade" on the former test,
offers some important advice.
She strongly recommends
that those students taking it
for the first time, as well as
those who have taken the pre-
vious test, find a practice copy
and consider enrolling in SAT
test preparation classes. Her
reason for this recommenda-
tion is due to the magnitude
of change, particularly on the
verbal section of this new test.
The analogies that appeared
on the former test have disap-
peared. An essay question has
been added. There are also
more reading comprehension
questions.
Here is an introduction to
the verbal section of the new
test. It is two hours 10 min-
utes in length and is now
comprised of the following:
A written essay as a
response to a question.
Thirty-nine multiple-
choice questions requiring a
student to identify grammar,
punctuation and usage errors
in sentences.
Thirteen multiple-choice
sentence completion ques-
tions, asking the student to
choose the correct word by
using the context of the rest of
the sentence and their knowl-
edge of vocabulary.
Forty-eight reading com-
prehension questions.
Schaefer provides some
examples of the types of
questions asked on the new
SAT, "just for fun." They are
from the book, "The Official
SAT Study Guide: For the New
SAT."
Essay questions
Essay question Think
carefully about the issue pre-
sented in the following ex-


cerpt and the assignment be-
low.
Some people believe that
there is only one foolproof
plan, perfect solution, or cor-
rect interpretation. But noth-
ing is ever that simple. For
better or worse, for every so-
'called final answer there is
another way of seeing things.
There is always a "however."
Test assignment:
Is there always another
explanation or another point
of view? Plan and write an
essay in which you develop
your point of view on this
issue. Support your position
with reasoning and examples
taken from your reading,
studies, experience or obser-
vations.
The student is allotted 25
minutes to complete this
assignment.
Noun/verb agreement
In the next section stu-
dents are tested on their
knowledge of noun/verb
agreement, parallel structure
(i.e. not switching verb tense
in midstream), placement of
modifiers and the use of rela-
tive clauses. For example:
The bright (A) fiberglass
sculptures of Luis Jiminez has
received (B) critical acclaim
not only (C) in his home state,
New Mexico, but also in (D)
NewYork No error (E)
Students must identify
where the error is located in
the sentence. The correct
answer is B. Since the subject
of the sentence is plural,
"sculptures," the plural verb,
"have received," is required.

A homeless family is shel-
tering a lost dog that recently
wandered into their wooded
camp.
Rena Doyle and her family
were surprised Tuesday eve-
ning when a little black and
gold male dachshund scam-
pered into their wooded
campsite off of Flamingo
Boulevard.
The homeless family,
which has been featured in
several editions of the Sun, are
caring for the dog they've
named "Whistler."
But while the family, espe-
cially 13-year-old Lucas, has
already grown attached to
Whistler, they would like to
reunite the dog with his
owner.
They are also concerned
for the dog, which was shiver-
ing when he wandered into
their camp and has a tear in
his ear and some fur missing
on his left side.
At first the dog was skittish
and scared, but he has
warmed up since, Rena said.
For more information, call
Rena Doyle at (941) 787-4407.

EAST
Dbl
Pass


A It sounds as if slam depends on
partner having either first- or second-
round heart control. The way to find
out is to jump to five spades.
Bidding over game tells partner you
are wonried about two fast losers in
the opponents' suit. With second-
round control North should raise to
six spades; with first-round control, a
cue-bid of six hearts is in order.
Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
S10753 A 9 7 6 7 5 4 46
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
10 Dbl ?
What action do you take?
A The common practice is to ignore
the double if you intend responding
at the one-level and make your nor-
mal action. Bid one heart.
Q 3 Vulnerable, you hold:
AA972 QVVoid 0 KJ8642 .KJ5
Partner opens the bidding with a
weak two hearts. What action do you
take?
A Partner does not have values for
an opening bid of one in a suit and
you know that the hand is probably a
complete misfit. Pass, and hope that
the opponents reopen the bidding
and get into trouble.

Q 4 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:


SQ6 v 42 oJ9652 4 10432
The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
10 Dbl ?
What action do you take?
A There is only one action that can
be taken a jump to three dia-
monds. After a takeout double at
your right, that bid is preemptive.
Any other bid is clearly wrong.
Q 5 Neither vulnerable, you hold:
4 10 8 5 2 vJ 10 2 4 AK 8 A 10 4
Partner opens the bidding with one
heart. What do you respond?
A Your prime values and good
intermediates make your hand worth
at least a couple of points more than
its count. That gives you the perfect
shape and strength for a jump to two
no trump. Make it. Should partner
then raise to three no trump, we
would elect to play there rather than
correct to four hearts.

4J5 vA9832 oJ6432 44


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH

What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A The one bid you cannot make
now is two diamonds. Even if you do
not play that the fourth suit is a game
force, the new suit is still forcing for
one round. You do not want to give
partner the impression, with your
weak holding and marked misfit, that
you have values. All you can do is
bid one no trump, ugly as that is.

mined the flier wasn't dead
and he sped home to sound
the alarm. Word came to
Biggs Air Force Base at El Paso
and the base crash and rescue
crew was alerted and
assigned to the rescue effort. I
was a member of that crew.
"The only information
provided was that the crash
site was Mt. Riley. There was
no Mt. Riley listed on any
maps. New Mexico authori-
ties were stymied as were
Texas authorities. Also the
military had no clue.
"I had a clue, but just the


barest of a clue. I held back
hoping someone would come
forward with valid informa-
tion. When nobody did I
knew if there was a chance for
this poor man it laid with me
and my foggy clue.
"I told the fire chief at Biggs
Field I had been to Mt. Riley
some years before. I added
that I doubted I could find it
in the dark.
"Mt. Riley was a small clus-
ter of Southern Pacific
Railroad buildings. It consist-
ed of a part time telegraph
station, a water facility for the
trains.
'A convoy was assembled
of men, trucks, doctors, offi-
cers and a chaplain. I was put
in the lead jeep to direct he
convoy to Mt. Riley. Away we
went through a residential
section of El Paso with sirens
blaring and me ready to faint


at any moment.
"The first stroke of luck
was that I found the little
bridge, in the dark. I felt more
confident now. Then it was off
the road slow going following
the ruts provided by previous
travelers. After about an hour
we came to a split in the road.
Because it was close to the
Mexican border, I thought the
right path would be north.
"We proceeded on, and
after an eternity saw a light up
ahead. It was the anxious
rancher running to meet us.
He was extolling us to hurry
because the victim was sink-
ing fast.
"Being in the first rescue
vehicle I went immediately to
where the flier lay. He was
drifting in and out of con-
sciousness and I was sur-
prised to find him communi-
cating. He moaned about his


left elbow which was crushed.
"I cut his regulation Navy
black neck tie off and opened
his collar. The medics then
took over. With the IVs going
and his sluburn treated, his
body started to respond. They
had knocked him out with
morphine. Now fresh blood
poured from his wounds.
"He was rushed to William
Beaumont General Army
Hospital at Fort Bliss, Texas.
Suddenly it was all over. The
rescue was successfully exe-
cuted.
"Next morning I found a
bottle of IV solution in my
coat pocket and was directed
to return it to the hospital.
While there I inquired about
Commander Allen. I was told
his chances looked good, but
he had a very narrow squeak
as his time was rapidly run-
ning out on the desert floor.


"Now, years later, I find
myself wondering about him.
What ever became of him?
How did he fare in later life? I
hope he lived well and I
would love to meet him and
tell him about a little boy and
his dad at Mt. Riley.

WELL-BEING


Strength training isn't


about bulging muscles


STAFF REPORT

Strength training used to
be taboo, even among pro-
fessional athletes, who be-
lieved it would make them
muscleboundd." Today it's
understood that strength
training is an important com-
ponent of general physical
fitness.
Benefits of strength
training
The benefits of strength
training are numerous and
varied. Among them can be:
Increased muscular
strength
Increased strength of
tendons and ligaments
Improved flexibility
(range of motion of joints)
Reduced body fat and
increased lean body mass
(muscle mass)
Decreased resting sys-
tolic and diastolic blood
pressure
Positive changes in blood
cholesterol
Improved glucose toler-
ance and insulin sensitivity
Improved strength, bal-
ance and functional ability in
older adults "
Training principles
The basic principles of
strength training are easily
summarized:
Overload: To see gains in
strength .you must always
stimulate the muscle more
than it is accustomed to.
Progression: The active
muscle must continue to
;work against a gradually
increasing resistance in order
to meet overload. When it gets


too easy, increase the weight!
Specificity: Gains you
receive are dependent on the
muscle group used, and
movement pattern perform-
ed. Therefore, you must be
sure that you are including
exercises for all body parts.
If you are training for
strength (maximal force), you
want to train with higher
weights and fewer repetitions.
For endurance (submaximal
force that is repeated), you
should concentrate on lifting
lower weights and higher
repetitions.
The YMCA recommends
the happy medium for both
strength and endurance. The
YMCA recommend 12-15
repetitions for strength train-
ing. If you would like to focus
a little more on strength than
endurance, you can try a
range of 8-12.
ALWAYS BE IN CONTROL
OF THE WEIGHTS!
Your workout
Always do some kind of
preliminary warm-up prior to
your strength training. If you
are doing a full-body work-
out, you should try to warm-
up both your upper and lower
body.
Five to seven minutes of
cardiovascular exercise fol-
lowed by light stretching is
appropriate. If you do not
have time to stretch prior to
your strength training, you
can stretch between
machines.
When lifting weight or
working muscles against
resistance, exhale through the
mouth as you are performing

Florida KidCare program. The
program is open to working
families with uninsured chil-
dren under 19 years old who
are not eligible for Medicaid.
The enrollment period
began Jan. 1 and ends Jan. 30.
"We're joining Healthy Kids
to get the word out about this
30-day enrollment period
because no application can
be processed after Jan. 30,"
said Barbara Laidlaw, execu-
tive nursing director of
Sarasota County's Health and
Human Services Department.
"We know that affordable,
quality medical insurance is
so important for kids.to stay


healthy, so families need to
act fast."
The new enrollment peri-,
od became possible after the
Florida Legislature increased
funding for Healthy Kids in
2004 to cover more eligible
children.
According to Diane Ship-
ley, a spokeswoman for the
Sarasota County Health Dle-
partment, parents must com-
plete and send in a one-page
application form along with
income documentation to
prove eligibility. The following
income documents are,
required: copies of latest pay
stubs covering a one-month
period, W-2 form, and the lat-


est 1040/Income Tax return
form. These documents are
required-for all family mem-
bers who receive an income.
Determination of eligibili-
ty can take several weeks and
coverage cannot begin until
eligibility has been deter-
mined and the full premium
amount is paid. The amount
of the insurance premium is
based upon household size
and monthly income.
Most families, Shipley said,
pay $15 or $20 per month, but
some families can pay more.
Applications received after
Jan. 30 will not be considered
for enrollment.
Applications are available at:


West Charlotte County
Administration Center, 6868
San Casa Road, Englewood.
North Port Health and
Family Service Center, 6950
Pan American Drive, North
Port.
Charlotte County Health
Department, 514 E. Grace St.
Punta Gorda.
Sarasota County Health
Department, 2200 Ringling
Blvd., Sarasota.
South County Resource
Center,_ 7820 South Tamiami
Trail, Venice.
In addition, applications
are also available at healthy
kids.org/application or by
calling (888) 540-5437.

Venice Gondolier Sun

FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST


A touch

of glass at

the Venice

Art Center

Everyone at the reception
at the Venice Art Center en-
joyed seeing the fabulous
glass creations. The exhibit is
arranged so the light from the
windows reflects off the pieces
and makes rainbows of color
throughout the room.
Walter Yovaish, Kellmis
Fernandez and Terry Braw-
ley contacted glass artists
throughout the country for
this show.
Visitors chuckled as Walter
encouraged women to hold
their purses close or have
their credit cards handy as
they walked through the
aisles of the exhibit. Prices
for the pieces range from $30
to $58,000. Venice artist Terry
Brawley created several inter-
esting stained glass pieces
for the show.
You won't want to miss this
exhibit, sponsored by Aston
Gardens, that runs through
Jan 27. TheVenice Art Center is
located at 390 S. Nokomis Ave.
Call 485-7136 for information.
****** *
It was fun to see Mary and
Harvey Stanley visiting Venice
from Phoenix, Ariz., at the Art
Center. While Mary said the
Arizona weather is better for
her health, she and Harvey
miss all their wonderful Ven-
ice friends. Mary spends time
relaxing in Phoenix, playing
tennis and volunteering at the
local library.

Belated.happy birthday to
Pattie Jones, who celebrated
with an extravagant party in
Manhattan. Her son Brad in-
vited 40 friends to his Man-
hattan penthouse apartment
to celebrate. Brad appeared
in "Chorus Line" on Broadway
for about seven years and as
a tribute to his mom, he put
on his "Chorus Line" top hat
and sang his rendition of
"One Singular Sensation" re-
written to honor his mom.
Pattie's son, David, a Prov-
idence executive and his fam-
ily were also on hand and
everyone celebrated this
grand lady. We are blessed to
have Pattie in Venice.
******
When you are enjoying
your Thursday evening stroll
in Venice tomorrow night, be
sure to stop by Nana's, A
Children's Shop and meet the
new owner, Sabine Hack-
Roberts. If you, are lucky
enough, her 5-month-old
daughter, Anna, will be on
hand and you'll get to see one
of her spectacular smiles.
Sabine also owns Just For
Kids also on Venice Avenue.
Sabine comes from Germany
where she was a tennis pro.
Sabine is fortunate to have
her family helping with this
new venture. Look for special
sales and promotions in both
stores.

The special person of this
week is Walter Yovaish. This
nice man is a sculptor. Walter
teaches classes at the Venice
Art Center and works on most
exhibits and projects there.
Walter is past president of
their Board of Directors and
every time I am at the art cen-
ter i see Walter working in
some capacity. He seems to be
the wind beneath the wings of
that organization.
Walter Yovaish is one of the
artists who helps make Venice
special.


Terry Brawley is proud of his stained glass work showing his
floating fish. Terry has a studio on Seaboard Avenue. He was
one of the organizers of this event.


Don and Irene O'Connell enjoy the
beautiful glass exhibit at the Venice Art
Center.


Linda Geyer enjoys the food
at the reception at the Venice
Art Center.


Sandy Frick is a former high school art teacher
who now creates and shows unique sculptures.
Sandy often finds interesting embellishments for
her work at the beach. You can see her work on
display at the Venice Art Center.


Debbie Waldron listens as Liana Martin explains a fused-glass
technique.


Pattie Jones and Lou Sauppe greet visitors at the reception at
the Venice Art Center.

N'-"IM S


Kathleen and Richard Winder are active members of the
Venice Art Center. Kathleen often coordinates the receptions
and Richard is an award-winning artist.


David Marshall and Louise Tario admire a glass vase at the
Venice Art Center.


Brian and Daniel O'Connell
have fun at the Venice Art
Center. Brian owns Hodgell
Gallery and shows some of
the pieces featured at the
center at his gallery.


Mollie Hernandez and Linda Peterson are pleased to represent
Aston Gardens, sponsor of the glass exhibit at the VAC.


Doug and Rosemary Nettleton are visiting Venice from
Canada. The two enjoy everything about Venice, including
the Venice Art Center.


Aileen Davis is the president
of the board at the Venice Art
Center. She enjoys the glass
sculpture, "Wild Woman."


Barbara Freeman enjoys a visit with old friends Mary and
Harvey Stanley, who are visiting Venice from Arizona. Mary
was one of the great champions for the arts when she lived in
Venice. She led the charge to keep the arts in the schools.


Carol and John Seemann just got into town and made the
Venice Art Center their first stop.


Kate O'Connell, Susan Gott and Kellmis Fernandez are proud of the glass exhibit. Kellmis helped
organize the event.
